GreenGreen (Atco) ... LP
Atco, 1969. Very Good ... $19.99
A psychedelic gem recorded at Gold Star Studios at the end of the 60s – one that brings a fair bit of British influences into play with the trippier sounds of the American underground of the time! This Atlantic debut by the group shows a tremendous amount of promise – and an approach to the music that sometimes takes on loftier ambitions through its use of bit of brass and reeds amidst the core keyboards, guitar, bass, and drums of the tunes. The songs are tight and sharp, but have some nice flourishes too – almost in the later Chad & Jeremy mode, with a real "British through LA" sort of sound. Titles include "RCMPB", "Don't", "Have You Ever", "To Be", "Sunrise #7", "Sparkle", and "Just Try". LP, Vinyl record album

King CurtisBest Of King Curtis (Atco) ... LP
Atco, Late 60s. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
Excellent Atlantic work from King - featuring some of his best little sax-driven instrumentals, pulled from singles and albums, and including a number of nice cuts that are hard to get on wax these days. Includes the funky funky "Memphis Soul Stew" – an oft-sampled cut with a monster bassline that just won't quit! Other tracks include "Makin Hey", "Ode To Billy Joe", "Jump Back", and "I Was Made To Love Her". LP, Vinyl record album

Sister SledgeThinking Of You – The Atco/Cotillion Recordings 1973 to 1985 (6CD set) ... CD
Soulmusic.com (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 6CD set ... $39.99
A massive collection of work from Sister Sledge – a Philly quartet who were able to take an older version of female group soul deep into the disco years – then keep on making great music well into the 80s! The hits of the group are certainly well-known, but they've got a rock-solid approach that always makes their full albums worth digging into – really wonderful records that are heavy on classic Philly soul production at the start, then continue to move past the sorts of disco cliches that so many other female 70s acts got stuck on – as you'll hear in this batch of music that moves all the way up through 1985, and still has the group sounding great! The package adds in some great bonus material too, for a total of 97 tracks – and albums include Circle Of Love, Together, We Are Family, Love Somebody Today, All American Girls, Sisters, Betcha Say That To All The Girls, and When The Girls Meet The Boys.

Baker Gurvitz ArmySince Beginning – The Albums 1974 to 1976 (Baker Gurvitz Army/Elysian Encounter/Hearts On Fire/bonus tracks) (3CD set) ... CD
Atco/Esoteric (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 3CD ... $24.99
If this is the army, sign us up – because these guys make the Kiss Army look like a bunch of wussies! Ginger Baker's at it again in post-Cream years – rocking harder than on some of his own funky albums, but also keeping a jazzy edge that makes for some pretty nice tracks on the self-titled Baker Gurvitz Army album – which has Ginger joining up with Adrian Gurvitz on guitar and vocals, and Paul Gurvitz on bass and more vocals too. The album's got a strong power trio vibe – augmented by some nice keyboard touches around the edges – really making things sparkle nicely on most tracks. One of the best of these is the moodily grooving "Inside Of Me", which steps along with a slinky style that we really dig. Other tracks have a more full on feel, and vocals, of course, but there's still some nice mellow moments in the set – and titles include "Mad Jack", "4 Phil", "Since Beginning", and "Memory Lane". On Elysian Encounter, The Baker Gurvitz Army maybe sounds better than on their debut – partly because Ginger Baker and the Gurvitz brothers have really found their groove – but also because there's some great keyboard work on the set from Peter Lemer, who you might know from earlier jazz work too! Ginger's really wailing on drums and percussion – in a way that's somewhat different than both Cream, and his own records too – and those searing guitar lines from Adrian Gurvitz really help give the whole album a great sense of focus and power! Titles include "People", "The Key", "The Gambler", "The Dreamer", "The Hustler", and "The Artist". Hearts On Fire is the last album in the legendary run of records from Ginger Baker and the brothers Adrian and Paul Gurvitz – a heck of a power trio, but one that comes across in a very different way than Baker's famous work in Cream! If anything, Ginger's drums have more of a funk current than before – a really powerful driving force at the bottom, while Adrian riffs around all over the top and edges of the tunes with these well-crafted guitar lines that don't even need a solo to find their voice – wickedly emphasizing the vocals on tunes that include "Flying In & Out Of Stardom", "Neon Lights", "Mystery", "Thirsty For The Blues", "My Mind Is Healing", and "Smiling". CD features all albums in their original artwork, a small fold-out poster, and bonus tracks that include "Memory Lane (live)", "People (live)", "Freedom (live)", and "Wotever It Is (live)". CD

Sublime sounds from The Bee Gees – a near-perfect bit of 60s pop, and a record that would set the scene for so many others to come! The vocals are what you've always known from the Bros Gibb, but the production is what really sends us – complicated, baroque, and filled with these completely compelling instrumental and studio twists that make the already-charming lyrics even more lovely!

Bee Gees/Richard Hewson OrchestraLove Melody ... LP
Atco, 1971. Sealed ... $11.99
A very groovy soundtrack to this cool British film – starring a young Jack Wild in his pre-HR Puffenstuff days! The film's kind of a mod kids film – with a number of bright and peppy tunes mixed with others that are either more serious or more jazzy – a blend of rock and more familiar soundtrack instrumentation that really keeps things interesting! The Bee Gees contribute a number of great tracks – like "Melody Fair", "In The Morning", "First Of May", and "To Love Somebody". Even better, though, are the instrumental bits by the Richard Hewson Orchestra – which include "Teacher's Chase", a killer groover with some sweet electric harpsichord and strings, plus the cuts "Working On It Night & Day", "Spicks & Spacks", and "Melody Fair". Peter Knight put the whole thing together, too! LP, Vinyl record album

Atco, 1967. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A wonderful soundtrack to a very odd film – one of Jane Fonda's early French cinematic efforts, directed by (then) husband Roger Vadim. The score has a wonderful sweeping French feel – with bits of easy instrumentation, slight touches of jazz, and even a bit of tripped-out Eastern instrumentation at times. There's a few more rock-like tracks that have vocals, but the best tunes on the set are the instrumentals. Titles include "Generique Debut", "Bal Vert", "Scene Du Lac", "La Serre", "Renee", "Scene D'Amour", "Attente", and "Un Certain Regard". LP, Vinyl record album

Buffalo SpringfieldBuffalo Springfield ... LP
Atco, 1966. Very Good+ ... $34.99
The landmark first album from Buffalo Springfield – a warmly collaborative record that would set the scene for countless work to come from the LA scene! Right from the start, there's something special going on here – a bit of the twang the Byrds were exploring at the time, and a very strong move past any sort of folk tendencies any of the group members might have had a few years before – but all without going into some of the too-sunny styles that were peaking in west coast pop. Instead, there's this current of darkness and subtle wit that really shines through – all without any psychedelic indulgence, and balanced perfectly amidst the guitars of Steven Stills, Richie Furay, and Neil Young – each of whom get a chance to sing on the record too. Bassist Bruce Palmer and drummer Dewey Martin complete the group – and titles include the classic "For What It's Worth" – plus "Nowadays Clancy Can't", "Leave", "Pay The Price", "Burned", "Do I Have To Come Right Out & Say It", and "Everybody's Wrong".

Buffalo SpringfieldBuffalo Springfield Again ... LP
Atco, 1967. Near Mint- ... $24.99
A record that's way more than just "again" – that is, a recap of the first Buffalo Springfield classic – as the set not only has the group really exploding forward, but also the individual members taking these strong steps on their own that really point towards their big legacies to follow! Neil Young grabs us with darkness on the first tune, Richie Furay warms us with some country strains on the next, and Stephen Stills moves into a space that's very much his own on the next – yet throughout it all, the record has this sense of unity that really holds up over the years – giving us depth that makes the whole thing an amazing listen time and time again. There's some key help along the way – a bit of piano from Don Randi, electric piano from Jack Nitzsche, and even some recording help from Jim Messina – all furthering the warmth of the group's approach. Titles include "Mr Soul", "Sad Memory", "Hung Upside Down", "Good Time Boy", "Rock & Roll Woman", "Broken Arrow", "A Child's Claim To Fame", and "Expecting To Fly". LP, Vinyl record album

Buffalo SpringfieldLast Time Around ... LP
Atco, 1968. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $29.99
The cover image here gives you an idea of what's going on – with Neil Young looking away from the rest of the group – as the album's not just the last by Buffalo Springfield, it also really shows the key members striving for a solo voice of their own! The set was released after Buffalo Springfield had already broken up, and a number of the tracks within are near-solo projects handled by Neil Young, Richie Furay, and Stephen Stills – although there's also some of those great duets that really have the group spirit shining so strongly. Jim Messina produced, and really makes sense of the material together as a whole – on titles that include "It's So Hard To Wait", "Four Days Gone", "Carefree Country Day", "Special Care", "The Hour Of Not Quite Rain", "Questions", "I Am A Child", "On The Way Home", and "Kind Woman".

CapitolsDance The Cool Jerk ... LP
Atco, 1966. Very Good+ ... $16.99
A landmark set of grooves by this excellent Detroit group – a trio who recorded for the local indie Karen, but got a much bigger boost towards fame when their record was picked up by Atlantic! The set's one of the killer 60s Motor Town sets produced by Ollie McLaughlin – and like the rest, it's got a really special edge – music that goes way past any simple 60s soul cliches, and which will make the set one of the real standouts in your collection. Arrangements are by Dale Warren, Riley Hampton, and Mike Terry – and titles include The Capitols' big hit "Cool Jerk", and also includes loads of other great tracks written by Donald Storball of the group – like "Dog & Cat", "Zig Zaggin", "The Kick", and others – plus versions of "Hello Stranger", "Love Makes The World Go Round", and "Good Lovin".

Jim CarrollCatholic Boy (magenta vinyl pressing) ... LP
Atco/Fat Possum, 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $15.99 20.00
A totally great album from the early years of the New York punk scene – and a set that will be remembered as the moment of musical glory for the legendary Jim Carroll! As with Tom Verlaine, Richard Hell, and Patti Smith – Carroll has roots in writing, but energy that needs music to really set it on fire – sounds that explode here with the intensity of the generation who lived through the city on fire, the garbage strike, and all the other tumult of NYC in the late 70s – an experience that's also added to Jim's young struggles with addiction. The music is every bit as sharp as Carroll's lyrics – and in addition to the seminal "People Who Died", the record sparkles with tunes that include "Three Sisters", "Nothing Is True", "Wicket Gravity", "City Drops Into Night"< "Crow", "I Want The Angel", and "Catholic Boy".

We're not normally ones to stock a Cher album, but this one's pretty darn hip – recorded in at Muscle Shoals Sound, the studio referenced in the title of the album, and presented in a wonderful cover image that has Cher standing outside the tiny facility with a host of legendary studio players that include Eddie Hinton, Jimmy Johnson, Barry Beckett, and Roger Hawkins! Sonny's also standing in the crowd in the photo, but he's as in the background as he is on this set – as Cher's singing alone in a soul-styled mode that's befits the setting of the album. Titles include a funky take on "I Walk On Guilded Splinters", plus "For What It's Worth", "Cry Like A Baby", "Save The Children", "Do Right Woman", and "Dock Of The Bay". Plus, the 2LP set features a huge amount of bonus tracks – 11 more numbers from a whole second Muscle Shoals album, but which was never issued – with titles that include "Momma Look Sharp", "Chastity's Song", "It Gets Me Where I Want To Go", "Easy To Be Hard", "I Believe", "You've Made Me So Very Happy", and "The First Time".

Roots rock mixes with blue-eyed soul, gospel piano, and folksy acoustic guitar – often handled with an approach that feels very spontaneous and personal – as if you were a motel staffer standing outside the door of the duo's room, waiting to deliver a meal, but afraid to knock in the middle of a tune! Titles include "Where The Soul Never Dies", "Come On In My Kitchen", "Faded Love", "Talkin Bout Jesus", "Never Sending Song Of Love", "Goin Down The Road Feelin Bad", and "Long Road Ahead".

A killer set of southern rock – even if the whole thing was recorded in London, while the group was on tour with Eric Clapton! Delaney and Bonnie Bramlett are at the height of their powers here – really reworking rootsy southern elements into the kind of sharp-edged 70s sound that made them such an important part of the scene at the time – even though they never went as mainstream to get the kind of crossover fame as some of their contemporaries! But it's that true-to-roots quality that really keeps things great here – as they work with famous help from Eric Clapton and Dave Mason on guitars – alongside sounds by southern stalwarts who include Bobby Whitlock on organ, Jim Price on trumpet, Bobby Keys on saxes, and Jim Gordon on drums. Titles include "Things Get Better", "Little Richard Medley", "Coming Home", "That's What My Man Is For", and "I Don't Want To Discuss It". LP, Vinyl record album

The duo were always almost more of a soul act than a rock one, and that quality really shows through here – as they tear it up with help from The Memphis Horns, plus Duane Allman on slide guitar, Bobby Whitlock on organ, Charlie Freeman on guitar, and even a bit of guest help from King Curtis on tenor and Little Richard on piano! Tunes include some great originals that show why the Bramlett's were the premier roots rock act of the time – mixed with a few nicely-chosen cuts by other folks – in a lineup that includes "Lay Down My Burden", "God Knows I Love You", "Hard Luck & Troubles", "Soul Shake", "Miss Ann", "Living On The Open Road", "Free The People", "The Love Of My Man", and "Living On The Open Road".

Seminal work from Dr John – one of his key late 60s albums that set the world on fire at the time – and which still stand as some of the doctor's greatest achievements! The approach here is a fantastic abstraction of older New Orleans roots – not nearly as rigid as in some of John's later music, and really used here just as a leaping-off point for these cool tripped-out explorations – often with a style that's got a very heady quality. The arrangements are wonderful – and bring in some off-kilter jazziness to inflect John's rootsy style with a sound that shows that he was opening his ears to all that was around him at the time – all the best elements he was picking up in Nola and Cali, fused into something really unique! Titles include "Black Widow Spider", "Barefoot Lady", "Twilight Zone', and "The Lonesome Guitar Strangler". LP, Vinyl record album

After the freer-wheeling longform sprawls of his more psychedelic albums, the doctor goes back to his Nola roots, and works with lots of great help here from Harold Battiste – who co-produced and did the arrangements – all in a style that's got a real 60s Crescent City vibe, even though the set was recorded in LA. Titles include versions of Sugarboy Crawford's "Iko Iko", Huey Smith's "Blow Wind Blow", and other classics like "Mess Around", "Let The Good Times Roll", "Junko Partner", "Tipitina", and "Stack A Lee".

Atco/Collectors Choice, 1968. Used ... $5.99
The great Dr John at his freaky deaky best – working here in a mindblowing mix of New Orleans roots and late 60s psych – all served up in some heady studio space and instrumental touches! The sound's unlike anything that ever went before – and is way better here than on some of John's later, straighter material – clearly the work of years of creative genius, as the Doctor, Mac Rebennack, draws on both his heritage from the Crescent City, and his years of work in the underground rock scene in LA! Harold Batiste handled the arrangements – and the record really paves the way for so many famous LA/New Orleans albums to come in the 70s – but never with results this mindblowingly trippy. The tracks are wild, funky, and messed-up New Orleans R&B filtered through a heavy dose of psychedelics – and titles include "Mama Roux", "Croker Courtbullion", "Gris Gris Gumbo Ya Ya", and the original version of "I Walk On Guilded Splinters".

Donny HathawayDonny Hathaway Live ... LP
Atco, 1972. Very Good- Gatefold ... $19.99
Massively beautiful work from the great Donny Hathaway! After two studio albums that had firmly put him on the map as one of the 70s best soul talents, Atco had the genius to have Donny record this live album before very enthusiastic crowds in Hollywood and New York. The result is one of the best soul albums ever – one that shows a totally different side of Donny, and which has him jamming with a smaller, hipper, jazz-oriented group in long versions of some of his best tracks. Features a massive 12 minute version of "The Ghetto", which has loads of excellent instrumental breakdowns, a 13 minute version of "Voices Inside (Everything Is Everything)", a superior version of the track "Little Ghetto Boy", which was only ever on a soundtrack, and covers of "What's Going On" and "Jealous Guy" that really transform them from the original versions. Very similar to the classic Curtis Mayfield 2LP live set on Curtom – and with a similar "Chicago studio soulster goes jazzy and intimate" feel. LP, Vinyl record album

King CurtisInstant Groove ... CD
Atco/Atlantic (Japan), 1969. Used ... $14.99
An instant groove from King Curtis – and a record that's even more deeply soulful than some of his other Atlantic albums! The title cut's a killer – a hard-vamping number that pushed funk further into the mainstream back in the day – and lots of the rest of the album follows suit, by bringing in some of the rougher King Curtis edges that usually only showed up on b-sides of 45s – while other full albums usually focused on sweeter sounds. There's a few of those here too – but even those tracks have a looser, more personal feel than before – not as much "perfect" soul sax, and a bit more grit. Arrangements are by Arif Mardin and King Curtis – and Duane Allman plays guiter on some cuts! Titles include "The Weight", "Sing A Simple Song", "Instant Groove", "Hey Jude", "Games People Play", "La Jeanne", and "Foot Pattin". CD

King CurtisInstant Groove/Get Ready ... CD
Atco/Wounded Bird, 1969/1970. New Copy ... $11.99 13.99
A pair of classics from one of the best saxophonists in soul music – back to back on a single CD! First up is an Instant Groove from King Curtis – and a record that's even more deeply soulful than some of his other Atlantic albums! The title cut's a killer – a hard-vamping number that pushed funk further into the mainstream back in the day – and lots of the rest of the album follows suit, by bringing in some of the rougher King Curtis edges that usually only showed up on b-sides of 45s – while other full albums usually focused on sweeter sounds. There's a few of those here too – but even those tracks have a looser, more personal feel than before – not as much "perfect" soul sax, and a bit more grit. Arrangements are by Arif Mardin and King Curtis – and Duane Allman plays guiter on some cuts! Titles include "The Weight", "Sing A Simple Song", "Instant Groove", "Hey Jude", "Games People Play", "La Jeanne", and "Foot Pattin". Get Ready is sly soul from the great King Curtis – one of his last albums ever, and one of his best as well! There's a hip sort of edge to the record that's different from the Curtis groove of the mid 60s – less standard soul instrumental covers, and a much more righteous feel overall – part of the vibe that King had been crafting for others in the late 60s Atlantic studios, and partly the funky undercurrents that would often only show up on some of his 45 releases for the label! The backing group here is really great – with rhythm work from Eddie Hinton on guitar, Barry Beckett on keyboards, David Hood on bass, and Roger Hawkins on drums – and solo moments from Cornell Dupree on lead guitar, and both Joe Newman and Ernie Royal on trumpets. King produced the record himself, and one cut features slightly different instrumentation – with organ by Jimmy Smith and piano by Richard Tee. Titles include "Floatin", "Sugar Foot", "Soulin", "Teasin", "Let It Be", "Someday We'll Be Together", "Something", and "Promenade". CD

The backing's by a nice little combo, and the tracks have a good raw quality that's even harder than some of Otis studio recordings from the time.

In the years after his death, when Otis Redding had approached near-deity status, Atlantic was digging through their vaults (recently swiped from Stax!) to find whatever they could to put together a record. Fortunately, most of the material they came up with was great – as you'll hear on this release of older stuff, put out by Atco in 1970. Otis is backed by Booker T & the MGs, with the Memphis Horn trio, plus a bit of extra keyboard work by Ike Hayes. Titles include "A Little Time", "Swingin On A String", "Demonstration", "Tell The Truth", "Out Of Sight", and "Wholesale Love". LP, Vinyl record album

Rose GardenRose Garden ... LP
Atco, 1968. Near Mint- ... $19.99
An overlooked gem from the Cali scene of the late 60s – music by a group with folksy roots, a bit of a British influence, and a warmth that sometimes gives them a bit of a Sunshine Pop vibe – but one that really hints at much deeper possibilities that should have made them huge! There's a mix of girl and guy vocals on a number of tracks, but often handled with a moody vibe that's really unique – not one soaring out and the other going deep, and instead often tied together in this way that has a wonderfully blue-tinged vibe – bringing a bit of sadness even where you might not expect. There's also a bit of a late 60s Byrds sound to the music – that moment right before the group was working with Gram Parsons – and the set features two songs that were given by Gene Clark to the band to record. Titles include "Coins Of Fun", "Next Plane To London", "Long Time", "Look What You've Done", "Till Today", "She Belongs To Me", "Rider", and "February Sunshine". LP, Vinyl record album

A great little record – and perhaps the most soulful outing by this white rock band with a great talent for crossing over! The record was partially produced by Gamble & Huff, and partially produced by Rick Hall at Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals – and it's a wonderful blend of the two styles that these massive forces in soul music were laying down at the time. Gamble & Huff retain the group's sweet post-harmony combo "Expressway To Your Heart" sound forged on their first album, and Rick Hall gives the band a funkier rawer sound that has them giving up a few nice funky moments. Titles include "Darkness", "Turn Out My Fire", "We Got A Job To Do", "Tell Daddy", "Go Out Walkin", and a nice cover of Calvin Arnold's "Funky Way To Treat Somebody". LP, Vinyl record album

Vanilla FudgeVanilla Fudge ... LP
Atco, 1967. Very Good+ ... $11.99
One of the coolest concepts for a record in the 60s – and a set that's the first, and maybe crowning achievement of Vanilla Fudge! The set's mighty trippy – and often offers up very weird, fuzzy remakes of songs that were more mainstream hits for other artists in the 60s – tunes by The Beatles, Zombies, Impressions, and others – taken into really weird new territory by the group's jamming fuzz guitar, stark rhythms, and dark sensibilities. Genius Shadow Morton produced and directed the whole thing – which is one of his crowning achievements, and a great commentary on some of the more mainstream pop he was producing at the time. Titles include "Illusions Of My Childhood", "Eleanor Rigby", "Ticket To Ride", "Bang Bang", "She's Not There", "Take Me For A Little While", and "You Keep Me Hanging On". LP, Vinyl record album

Sublime work from Blue Magic – a record that still has them singing in the sweet harmony sound of earlier records, but which also picks up a fuller sound and a bit of a groove – thanks to stone Philly arrangements by Norman Harris and Ron "Have Mercy" Kersey! A number of tracks add in a bit of moog that sound surprisingly great next to the group's harmonies – electrifying them a bit without overwhelming them – and letting Blue Magic step way past their fragile harmony roots into the forefront of Philly group soul at the time! Tracks include the groovers "We're On The Right Track" and "Magic Of The Blue", the ballads "Chasing Rainbows" and "Loneliest House on the Block", plus "What's Come Over Me", which is a duet between the group and Margie Joseph.

Typical biker movie fare – but this time around played by some more famous groups! The album was put together by Mike Curb – the guy who crafted so many knock-off groups for Tower and Sidewalk biker soundtracks – and truthfully, Mike doesn't produce the work on the album by the big stars. Cream do a nicely gentle jazzy number called "Anyone For Tennis", and the fuzzy instrumental "Desert Ride" – and Iron Butterfly perform "Iron Butterfly Theme" and "Unconscious Power", plus some other instrumentals that are more in keeping with work on other Curb soundtracks. Barbara Kelly & The Morning Good do the rest of the album – very much in that instrumental rock vein that you'd get on other Curb scores – running through a pretty nice mix of instrumental tunes that includes "Savage Struggle", "The Medal", "Here Comes The Fuzz", and "Shacktown Revenge".

"In A Gadda Da Vida" was shortened to a single – with the big hook intact – but this classic album version runs for 17 minutes in length, and has the group doing all these cool jams with their instruments – all the animals in the garden of Eden talking to each other (or at least that's what our addled teenaged minds always thought!) Shorter tracks are mighty nice too – a heady, heavy brew of Hammond and fierce guitar from Erik Brann, on cuts all penned by group leader Doug Ingle.

Titles include the single "The Happy Song", plus "Thousand Miles Away", "I've Got Dreams To Remember", "You Made A Man Out Of Me", "Think About It", "A Waste Of Time", "Champagne & Wine", "A Fool For You", and the killer funky number "Hard To Handle"!

A great little live set from King Curtis – cut in his local turf of Harlem, with a very loose sort of feel and nice gritty groove – which lets both King and his combo get even freer and funkier than usual! There's an edge here you don't usually get on the studio work from Curtis – or at least the material you'd find on other 60s albums from the same stretch – which often just featured sax instrumental reworkings of pop hits. Instead, this cooker has King's horn working in a cool combo with keyboards from Paul Griffin and guitar from Cornell Dupree – really all coming together as a tight funk act, and more in the mode that you'd find on some of King's overlooked b-sides from his Atco singles. Titles include "Philly Dog", "Tough Talk", "Soul Theme", "Something On Your Mind", and "Pots & Pans". CD

Production is by Tony Silvester and Bert De Coteaux – and the style is very much in the Philly mode of the time (even though the album was recorded in New York) – a full sound on the more upbeat numbers, but a warm and gentle approach on the mellower numbers – especially some of the great harmony tracks that really stand out in the set! Most titles were co-written by Gwen Guthrie and Patric Grant – but the album also includes tunes by Patrick Adams and Thom Bell & Linda Creed too.

✨✧ Eddie Cano & Nino TempoOn Broadway ... LP
Atco, 1966. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful set of Latin groovers – one of the few jazz-styled albums cut by tenor player Nino Tempo, and a tight session from the group of pianist Eddie Cano! Eddie's combo has a highly percussive feel – in keeping with Eddie's own sound on the keys – and Nino blows very soulfully over the top as the group works through an excellent set of covers and original numbers. At first glance, the album might appear to be a bit too pop styled – but it's actually pretty darn great, and Tempo's work on sax gives the tunes a wonderfully fluid feel that makes us wish he'd recorded more in this mode! Titles include "King Kong", "My Resolution", "Reza", "Call Your D", "His Groove", and "Hip Street". Really great stuff! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Herb GellerGypsy ... LP
Atco, 1959. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
A familiar concept, but an incredibly hip album – versions of tunes from the musical Gypsy, all played by an incredible group led by altoist Herb Geller! Geller could be a fantastically modern player when he wanted to be – and this album pushes him distinctly in that direction, as it has him working with a strong group of young players that includes Scott LaFaro on bass, Elvin Jones on drums, Hank Jones on piano, and Thad Jones on trumpet – kind of a "Jones Brothers Plus" album! The basic premise is that Geller and his group play tunes from the hit musical Gypsy – but they take those tunes and turn them on their head, creating tight little modern jazz gems, sparkling with creativity, and polished by some exceptional work by Geller and LaFaro! Barbara Long sings vocals on a few numbers, but the rest of the album's instrumental – and titles include "Cow Song", "Together", "Little Lamb", "Small World", and "Some People".

✨✧ King CurtisKing Curtis Live At Fillmore West ... LP
Atco, 1971. Very Good Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
The King Curtis combo in all of its glory – really grooving hard here in a set of instrumental performances recorded at the same time as Aretha Franklin's famous live date at the Fillmore West! King backed Aretha up on her own record from Fillmore, but this set features all the instrumental grooves laid down by Curtis and his group before Aretha took the stage – very tight and funky numbers that showcase King's work on alto and soprano sax, as well as organ from Billy Preston, guitar from Cornell Dupree, electric piano from Truman Thomas, and funky drums from Bernard Pretty Purdie! The Memphis Horns get into the action a bit – blasting out when the tunes require it – and as with the Franklin album, the recording style here is totally great – very "live", but still with the best focus of Atlantic studio soul! Titles include a smoking 7 minute version of King's funky classic "Memphis Soul Stew", plus long takes on "Changes", "I Stand Accused", and "Soul Serenade" – as well as shorter versions of "A Whole Lotta Love" and "Ode To Billy Joe"! LP, Vinyl record album

Donny HathawayDonny Hathaway Live ... CD
Atlantic (UK), 1972. Used ... $6.99
Massively beautiful work from the great Donny Hathaway! After two studio albums that had firmly put him on the map as one of the 70s best soul talents, Atco had the genius to have Donny record this live album before very enthusiastic crowds in Hollywood and New York. The result is one of the best soul albums ever – one that shows a totally different side of Donny, and which has him jamming with a smaller, hipper, jazz-oriented group in long versions of some of his best tracks. Features a massive 12 minute version of "The Ghetto", which has loads of excellent instrumental breakdowns, a 13 minute version of "Voices Inside (Everything Is Everything)", a superior version of the track "Little Ghetto Boy", which was only ever on a soundtrack, and covers of "What's Going On" and "Jealous Guy" that really transform them from the original versions. Very similar to the classic Curtis Mayfield 2LP live set on Curtom – and with a similar "Chicago studio soulster goes jazzy and intimate" feel. CD

Clarence ReidNobody But You Babe (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Tay-Ster/Traffic, 1969. Used ... $6.99
Don't get this set mixed up with Clarence Reid's album of a similar name on Alston/Atco – as this rare date for the Tayster label is quite different – although it still shares the famous title track! Reid's in perfect rough-edged form here – almost more strongly southern soul overall, with less funky elements in his sound, and a nicely messed-up groove overall! The record clearly carries some party soul elements from the scene that Reid was hitting as Blowfly – but the overall groove is straighter soul overall, and done in a mode that has some gritty guitar on most numbers, and a trio of lovelies backing up Clarence's lead vocals. Titles include "Skunks Hogs & Dogs", "Along Came A Woman", "Heaven Will Welcome You", "I Wish It Were Me", "Let The Soul Sounds Play", "Mark My Word", and "Nobody But You Babe". CD

Sonny & CherLook At Us/Wondrous World/In Case You're In Love (plus bonus tracks) (3CD set) ... CD
BGO (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 3CD ... $16.99
A huge amount of music from Sonny & Cher – a set that not only includes three full albums, but also every one of their singles for Atco Records too! First up is Look At Us – a fantastic moment in 60s pop – and the record that forever launched the duo of Sonny & Cher upon the world – a completely charming, if also mismatched couple whose work together is completely fantastic! Sonny had been bumping around the LA music scene for years by the time of this record – but when he found the young Cher, the pair instantly clicked – with a chemistry that's so different than so many other male/female duos of the time – partly because of the difference in their voices, but also because of the way that each of them remain completely individual, even while singing together. Titles include the massive worldwide hit "I Got You Babe", plus versions of "Then He Kissed Me", "The Letter", and "Let It Be Me". The real treat, though, is the material by Sonny – including the tunes "It's Gonna Rain", "Just You", and "Sing C'Est La Vie". On Wondrous World Of Sonny & Cher, it seems as if the pair can completely transform anything they touch with their talents! The tunes here are a mix of older numbers and a few originals by Sonny – arranged and produced by the man himself, and given an extra dose of soul, thanks to musical backings from Harold Battiste – who finds the sort of balance that also allowed these early records to cross over to an R&B market too. The vocals are wonderful – sometimes together, sometimes trading lines or choruses, on titles that include "I Look For You", "Tell Him", "I'm Leaving It All Up To You", "Bring It On Home To Me", "Set Me Free", "Leave Me Be", "Laugh At Me", and "Turn Around". On In Case You're In Love, Sonny & Cher are singing with this perfect sense of complement that few other vocal duos of the 60s could ever hope to match! They hardly need harmony at all – and could never have it, either – given all the "nose" in Sonny's style – but that separation is what really makes the charm of the pair – guy/girl, young/old, perfect/imperfect – coming together with a set of very groovy tunes, all arranged and produced by Sonny – and given a nice bounce in the backings by Harold Battiste! The set features their classic "The Beat Goes On" – plus lots more Sonny originals, including "Monday", "Podunk", "Little Man", "Living For You", and "Love Don't Come". 3CD package also features 17 more bonus tracks from Atco singles – both a-sides and b-sides – with tunes that include "Plastic Man", "Good Times", "Love Is Strange", "Baby Don't Go", "A Beautiful Story", "Have I Stayed Too Long", "It's The Little Things", "Hold You Tighter", "Good Combination", "You Gotta Have A Thing Of Your Own", "You're A Friend Of Mine", "Circus", and "It's The Little Things" – most originals by Sonny!
