✨✧ Jakky Boy & The Bad BunchI've Been Watching You (with bonus track) ... CD
Salsoul/Octave (Japan), 1983. Used ... Just Sold Out!
An overlooked gem from the early 80s years at Salsoul – a set that's beat-heavy, and plenty funky too – with a groove that's nicely heavy on both roller skate and electro modes! The record's a bit more offbeat than the usual Salsoul set – and we mean that in a good way – more in the street-styled mode you'd hear on the Vaughan Mason/Butch Dayo collaboration for the label – and proof that the company had a strong ear for grooves that go way beyond disco! There's plenty of surprises here – and the approach to the grooves has a very New York feel that mixes together the best of the up-and-downtown modes of the time. Titles include "Angel Baby", "Come To Me", "Rock The Rhythm", "I've Been Watching You", "Holdin On", and "I Need Your Love". CD features a bonus track – "I've Been Watching You (original single)". CD

✨✧ Janelle MonaeDirty Computer (45 rpm 2LP pressing) ... LP
Bad Boy, 2018. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Janelle Monae knocks it out of the park here – sounding every bit as great as before, but also hitting this righteous mode that really takes the singer to incredible new territory! If you loved Janelle's previous records, don't worry – she's still as catchy and playful as ever – but there's also a depth and darkness that's inspired by recent political turns in America – which Monae also uses to address issues that go back much farther in her experience, woven together in songs that are maybe even more politically powerful because of the way that they'll also win over the mainstream! Stevie Wonder gets the very first thanks in the long notes at the end of the book – and the mix of soul and message here definitely hearkens back to Stevie in the 70s – is all Janelle's own. Heck, even guests like Zoe Kravitz, Brian Wilson, and Pharrell Williams can't get in the way – on titles that include "Screwed", "Django Jane", "I Got The Juice", "Stevie's Dream", "Don't Judge Me", "Crazy Classic Life", "Take A Byte", "Do Afraid", "Americans", "I Like That ", "Pynk", "Jane's Dream", and "Make Me Feel". And hey, you've gotta love a record that's inspired both by Vibranium and Stevie Wonder! LP, Vinyl record album

Linda Babe MajikaDon't Treat Me So Bad ... LP
Gallo/Be With (UK), 1988. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
Groovy South African soul from Linda Bab Majika – a singer who's part of that new generation of positivity that was flowing out of the scene, reaching out here with a sound that's pretty universal in appeal! The music is more conventional 80s soul than you might expect – and richer and fuller than some of the synth-heavy work of the period in South African soul – still with lots of beats and keyboards, but a bolder production sound that really suits Linda's vocals! There are occasional elements that you might recognize from bigger crossover world acts – such as the South African artists who were getting play on US radio – but the overall sound is more soul than anything else, on titles that include "Let's Make A Deal", "It's Our Home", "Don't Treat Me So Bad", "Play Boy", and "Kunzima".

Average White BandAverage White Band ... CD
Atlantic, 1974. Used ... $4.99
AWB's first for Atlantic – and a nice slice of funk that proves that they can mix it up with the best groups of the 70s! The record's got plenty of sweet electric keyboards over smooth funky basslines – and as the years go by, the band's white boy vocals don't sound nearly as bad as we remember them. And besides, when they play their instruments so nicely – how can you hold the singing against them? Includes the killer classic "Pick Up The Pieces", sampled more times than we can remember – plus "You Got It", "Just Wanna Love You Tonight", "Person To Person", and a nice remake of the Isley Brothers' "Work To Do". The CD includes the bonus track "Pick Up The Pieces (the Atlantic Family Live At Montreux). CD

Willie Colon & Ruben BladesSiembra (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Fania/Craft, 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99 25.99 On August 20, 2021
A classic 70s salsa jammer from Willie Colon – working here with his one of his greatest vocalists – the young Ruben Blades, back before he'd crossed over to super-huge success! The album really marks a departure for Willie – moving past the bad boy style of earlier records, that kind of "tough guy in the hood" look – into a mode that was more open to other Latin scenes, and which marked an even greater rise to Latin stardom – really warm, open-handed, and a push forward with a new level of power and maturity. Titles include "Dime", "Plastico", "Buscando Guyaba", "Maria Lionza", "Ojos", and "Siembra". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ NasKing's Disease (red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Mass Appeal, 2020. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $22.99 24.99
Seasons and styles change, but Nas stays true to his strong suits and status as one of the longest running living legends in the game! He stays in his neo-classic comfort zone on King's Disease – leading the way throughout with remarkably wordy, charismatically delivered rhymes, never fading into the background even with an impressive guest list. Hit-Boy drives the production on this one, recalling the golden age without retreading it, well-suited to Nas's style. Titles include "Blue Benz", "Car #85" with Charlie Wilson, "27 Summers", "10 Points", "The Cure", "Til The War Is Won" with Lil Dark, "Replace Me" with Big Sean & Don Toliver, "All Bad" with Anderson.Paak, "Ultra Black" with Hit-Boy, and "Spicy" with Fivio Foreign & A$ap Ferg.

✨✧ PattoGive It All Away – The Albums 1970 to 1973 (Patto/Hold Your Fire/Roll Em Smoke Em/Monkey's Bum) (4CD set) ... CD
Vertigo/Esoteric (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 4CD ... $36.99 50.99
Four full albums from Patto – presented here in a complete box set! First up is the self-titled Patto – the debut album from a group who were never huge at the time, but who've gone onto become one of the best-remembered acts from the Vertigo Records scene – thanks to the sound of this amazing debut! The record is extremely hard to peg – it's definitely got some jazz inspiration in the way the songs are put together – especially since group member Ollie Halsall uses some great vibes – but the whole thing's hardly a jazz rock set at all – as the tunes are maybe more open at times, or a bit gritty at others – always topped by the unique vocals of Mike Patto. The record is both freewheeling and down to earth at the same time – a hard thing to pull off – and titles include "The Man", "Hold Me Back", "Time To Die", "Red Glow", and "Government Man". Hold Your Fire is a really great second set from Patto – a record that maybe tips the balance more strongly towards guitar sounds than the previous, but one that still preserves all their really unique sense of arrangements and songwriting! Vocalist Mike Patto is kind of a lost legend from early 70s rock – a singer who might have given some of the bigger Brit names a run for their money, had he ever gotten a chance to really shine in the spotlight. But it's also that suppressed fame that makes his presence on this record so great – a completely unselfconscious approach that fits in both with the grittier numbers and some of the more open, chromatic tunes. Titles include "Hold Your Fire", "Give It All Away", "See You At The Dance Tonight", and "How's Your Father". Next is Roll Em Smoke Em – maybe the funkiest record ever cut by Mike Patto and crew – a set that's got a nicely loose, unbridled feel – and plenty of funky drums and percussion from John Halsey! The group have really hit their prime here – so much so, they almost don't need any larger concepts or ideas to guide them – and are just comfortable to get together and work out some nicely rough-edged ideas – with Patto himself sounding maybe a bit more blue-eyed soulful/rocker, and Ollie Halsell kicking up his guitar with a lot more fuzz. Titles include "Flat Footed Woman", "Singing The Blues On Reds", "Loud Green Song", "Turn Turtle", and "Peter Abraham". Last up is Monkey's Bum – material that was intended to become the fourth album from Patto – an excellent UK group who never fully got their due! Patto have a great sound that's kind of like higher progressive rock ideas taken down into bluesier territory – with an earthiness that maybe a few key contemporaries got right – maybe Traffic or Procol Harum – and, like both of those groups, one that was capable of really hitting things right on the nose with a special sound that was all their own. Mike Patto only got better as a singer as the years went on, bringing more soulful phrasing into his lyrics – which is also echoed by some of the keyboard and rhythm work here, but never in a way that's too slavishly blues-rock or white boy soul, and certainly with the right sort of complexity to warrant the group's attention by Island in the early 70s. Titles include "Hedyob", "My Days Are Numbered", "Sugar Cube 1967", "I Need You", "Good Friend", and "Get Up & Dig It" – plus a great cover of "Last Night I Had A Dream". CD set features the bonus tracks "Beat The Drum", "Bad News", and "Hanging Rope". CD

Lee Perry & The UpsettersReturn Of Django (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Trojan/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1969. New Copy Gatefold ... $26.99 29.98
An early moment of genius from the legendary Lee Perry – and a set that uses Django imagery from Italian westerns to serve up a "bad boy" version of Jamaican music for the late 60s! Even at this early point, the sounds are mindblowing – rocksteady brought through a really weird sort of filter – so that lots of familiar instruments are turned inside out, and used to create these incredibly far-out sounds – especially the keyboards, which get really weird tunings and timings – and the reed passages, which sometimes have surprisingly exotic touches. Production is a big part of this approach, yet is surprisingly understated too – especially in comparison to later Perry productions – and titles include "Cold Sweat", "Live Injection", "Ten To Twelve", "One Punch", "Touch Of Fire", "Night Doctor", and the classic "Man From MI5".

Siegel Schwall Band953 West ... LP
Wooden Nickel, 1975. Near Mint- ... $5.99
The album's title is a reference to an address on the north side of Chicago – 953 West Belmont Ave – somewhat gritty at the time the album was recorded, now not too far from a giant Target discount store! Yet the address, the cover, and the overall presentation are a great example of the way that the north side folk scene morphed as the 60s moved into the 70s – as a group like the Siegel Schwall Band were able to work in a style that was nicely lean, and free from some of the more commercial inclinations that might have been foisted on them, had they been recording on the coasts! By this point in the 70s, so many once-blues acts had morphed into more mainstream blues rock modes – not always in a bad way, but certainly different than the mix of acoustic and electric blues inspirations these guys use for their very well-penned, often witty songs. Titles include "Traitor From Decatur", "Good Woman", "When I've Been Drinkin", "Off To Denver", "I Think It Was The Wine", and "Just Another Song About The Country Sung By A City Boy".

SkyySkyyhigh – The Skyy Anthology 1979 to 1992 ... CD
Salsoul/Big Break (UK), Late 70s/1980s/Early 90s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $16.99 24.99
A heavy package of work from the legendary Skyy – the funky club combo headed by Randy Muller after his work with BT Express and Brass Construction! With Skyy, Muller honed his groove even more than before – creating a really tight focus on bass-heavy bottoms, and focusing all instruments in the group into a solidly soaring sound that showed that funk was alive and well on the dancefloor – even well beyond the disco years – as you'll hear in this collection of work that not only includes Salsoul Records classics by Skyy, but also later work for Capitol and Warner too. The 2CD set really runs the gamut of Skyy sounds – and links their disco material with some great later 80s grooves too – on titles that include "The Groove Is Bad", "First Time Around (12" mix)", "Call Me", "Let's Celebrate (12" mix)", "Real Love", "Up & Over", "Start Of A Romance", "Givin It To You (12" special mix)", "Bad Boy (12" version)", "When You Touch Me", "Get Into The Beat", "Movin Violation", "Let Love Shine (12" version)", "You Got Me Up", "Love Plane", "Skyyzoo (12" mix)", "Fallin In Love Again", "Disco Dancin", and "Superlove".

VariousThat'll Flat Git It! Volume 33 – Rockabilly & Rock N Roll From The Vaults Of Renown & Hornet Records ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $14.99 22.99
A tight batch of rare rockers from a tiny North Carolina label from the end of the 50s – a set that's a nice contrast to some of the other volumes in this excellent series, which usually focus on lost rockabilly nuggets in the vaults of major labels! Here, there's a vibe that's much more unified overall – as most of the early tracks feature a core combo providing most of the rhythms for a lead singer and lead guitar – and even the later ones seem to hold on to a tight sort of label style, which makes for a very unified vibe through the 35 tracks in the collection! The music's not just rockabilly, either, as there's a number of cuts here that have a more direct inspiration from R&B – some of that crossover Carolina soul at its earliest levels – and there's maybe a few that echo some older styles from the hills, too. As with all volumes, the Bear Family presentation is great – very detailed notes, great sound, plenty of history, and a massive set list – with titles that include "Problem Child" and "Betcha Didn't Know" by Wayne Handy, "I Want Everything My Baby Got" and "Our Southern Way Of Living" by Jim Thornton, "Buzz Me On The Telephone" by Irving Fuller & The Chorvettes, "Cold North Wind" and "I'm Not Ashamed" by Lonnie Dee, "True Blue" by Joe Franklin & The Hi-Liters, "Stop Walking All Over Me" and "Tears Falling Down Down Down"b y Harold Pope, "Bad Boy" by Don Ray with The Hornets, "The Day I Die" by Daryl Petty, "Do You Ever Think Of Me" by Clyde Moody, "The Pad" by Bobby Strigo with The Blue Notes, "I'm Going Home" by Hughie Owens with The Blue Notes, and "Making Fun Of Me" by Bobby Rose.

Their first LP and a high water mark for the Flavor Unit.

Too bad that not much beside a couple of standout tracks they did after this album was of the same quality. The hits need no introduction from us: "OPP", "Ghetto Bastard (Everthing's Gonna Be Alright)" and "Guard Your Grill", plus this set includes "1, 2, 3" featuring Lakim Shabazz and Apache, "Wickedest Man Alive" featuring Queen Latifah, "Everyday All Day", "Strike A Nerve", "Let The Ho's Go", "Pin The Tail On The Donkey", "Rhyme'll Shine On" and "Thankx For Sleepwalking".

The title's no lie – as this sweet little set features 101 Northern Soul classics – a treasure trove of upbeat soul from the 60s – with lots of rare cuts, obscure groovers, and the kinds of tracks that always got more play on UK dancefloors than back home here in the US! For the price, the set is a hell of a collection – and features killer classics from labels that include Motown, Chess, Philips, MGM, and other vintage imprints – with a nice degree of overlooked cuts that have only been discovered by the northern scene in more recent years. Titles include "Til You Were Gone" by Frank Wilson, "Love Love Love" by Bobby Hebb, "Stop Her On Sight" by Edwin Starr, "What More Could A Boy Ask For" by The Spinners, "Can't Satisfy" by The Impressions, "I'm The One Who Loves You" by Darrell Banks, "Why Am I Lovin You" by Debbie Dean, "The Night" by Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons, "I Got A Feelin" by Barbara Randolph, "Heaven Must Have Sent You" by The Elgins, "Dr Love" by Bobby Sheen, "Trampoline" by Spencer Davis Group, "Nothing Left To Give" by Thelma Houston, "Baby I Miss You" by Tommy Good, "I've Been Blessed" by Bobby Taylor, "Look What You Done Boy" by The Lollipops, "Friday Night" by Johnny Taylor, "Baby I Love You" by Howard Tate, "Helpless" by Kim Weston, "Moody woman" by Jerry Butler, "There's A Ghost In My House" by R Dean Taylor, "Ordinary Joe" by Terry Callier, "Wade In The Water" by Marlena Shaw, "Drop In The Bucket" by Mary Wells, "Baby A Go Go" by Barbara McNair, "Love's Gone Bad" by Chris Clark, "Run For Cover" by The Dells, "Battened Ships" by Odyssey, "Nothing But A Heartache" by The Flirtations, "Sure Is A Lotta Woman" by The Isley Brothers, and "Keep On Lovin Me" by Francis Nero.

Uptown/Universal, 1994. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
The stunning second album from Mary J Blige – a record that showed that both the singer and her new form of soul music were around to stay! Production is from Sean Combs and Chucky Thompson – very heavy on beats borrowed from the underground, but nicely tuned to the mainstream – all with a streetwise vibe that immediately made the lady such a nice contrast to some of the more cloying commercial R&B from a few years before. And if you think the approach is all attitude and hype, guess again – because Blige almost reintroduces deep soul to the charts with the classic "I'm Going Down" – alongside other classics that include "You Bring Me Joy", "Be Happy", "My Life", "Mary's Joint", "Don't Go", "I Love You", "No One Else", "I Never Wanna Live Without You", "I'm The Only Woman", and "Mary Jane". 25th Anniversary edition – with bonus CD that features the extra cuts "Mary Jane (rmx with LL Cool J)", "I'm Goin Down (rmx with Mr Cheeks)", "I Love You (rmx with Smif N Wessun)", "Be Happy (Bad Boy butter rmx)", "Be Happy (Ron G rmx)", and "You Make Me Feel Like A Natural Woman".

Maximum Pressure (UK), 1980s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The third release on Pressure Sounds' imprint Maximum Pressure, shining a welcome light on more modern reggae productions, this time spotlighting the work of one of the cornerstones of modern Jamaican music, King Jammy. Jammy's forays into the digital sound helped form the bridge between the sound of classic traditional reggae and the full on attack of modern day ragga. A dozen and a half of Jammy's classic dance hall productions, with well known figures from the 70s such as Horace Andy, The Wailing Souls, Johnny Osbourne, plus some of the most innovative and (then) underground names like Admiral Bailey and Admiral Tibet. Lots of nice, rare and previously unreleased dub-plates keep this one hard hitting from top to bottom, including "Bad Boys" by Super Black and "Rock Them One By One" by Eccleton Jarrett, plus "Conscious Lover" by Sugar Minott, "Nuff A Dem Gwan" by Little John, "Love Light Of Mine" by Horace Andy, "Pass Me A Dub Plate" by Brian & Tony Gold, "Leave It To Me" by Frankie Paul, "Taller Than King Kong" by Eek A Mouse and "If The Rockers Don't Groove You" by Home T.

Jet Star/Demon (UK), 1983. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Heavy dub, with a mighty sharp edge – all those points and angles that King Tubby brought to the music with a special punch of his own – almost as if he's showing the scene that these sorts of dub tracks aren't the stuff of head-nodding naps, but instead have a righteous mystical power of their own! Bunny Lee produced, and the musicians are a familiar group of players, but with a lot more edge here than they'd have over at Island Records – Sly Dunbar on drums, Robbie Shakespeare on bass, Willie Lindo on lead guitar, Earl Chinna Smith on rhythm guitar, and Winston Wright and Jackie Mittoo on some mighty nice organ lines! Titles include "Dub Them Under Manners", "Ragga Muffin Dub Stylee", "Bad Boys Dub Stylee", "The Best Dub In The Business", "Back Out A This Dub Stylee", and "Majestic Stylee". LP, Vinyl record album

Lefty FrizzellSaginaw Michigan/Sad Side Of Love/Puttin On (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia/Morello (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99 20.99
A trio of albums from the great Lefty Frizzell – plus lots of bonus tracks too! First up is Saginaw Michigan – Fantastic 60s work from the great Lefty Frizzell – issued at a time when he was back on the top of the charts with the fantastic title track, and able to really stretch out and do great things with his amazing voice! Lefty's still got the edge of the honky tonks, but has also aged and weathered a bit too – a quality he really brings to the lyrics, and makes the tunes sparkle with even more depth and charm than before – still able to pen some great material on his own, which is nestled in here amidst some well-chosen tracks by others. Titles include the great "Sagniaw Michigan", plus "What Good Did You Get", "There's No Food In This House", "Lonely Heart", "Don't Let Her See Me Cry", "When It Rains The Blues", "Hello To Him", and "James River". The Sad Side of love has Lefty Frizzell taking on a whole host of heartbreaking tunes, but delivered with that special kind of charm that always set him apart from the rest – a guy who's able to take life's punches, but maybe learn a bit in the process – a quality he really brings to the great batch of material on the set. As usual, Lefty contributed a number of great songs to the record himself – and titles include "Preparations To Be Blue", "She's Gone Gone Gone", "Running Into Memories Of You", "I Don't Trust You Anymore", "A Little Unfair", "I Can Tell", "It's Bad", "Confused", and "Woman Let Me Sing You A Song". Puttin On is a record with a slightly psychedelic cover, but a set that's got the best sound of Lefty Frizzell in the 60s – that amazing voice, matured like rich wine – set to a well-chosen batch of tunes that includes a few hits plus some great lesser-known material! Lefty sounds great throughout – taking on tunes like "Little Old Wine Drinker Me" and "Almost Persuaded", and making them his own – then moving onto tunes that include "Get This Stranger Out Of Me", "I Just Couldn't See The Forest", "A Prayer On Your Lips", "Anything You Can Spare", and "Heart". 2CD set also features a whopping 16 bonus tracks – lots more 60s gems from this sometimes-overlooked part of Lefty's career – titles that include "What Am I Gonna Do", "Honky Tonk Stardust Cowboy", "Make That One For The Road", "Writing On The Wall", "Everything Keeps Coming Back", "Wasted Way Of Life", "An Article From Life", and "The Rider".

George JonesStill The Same Old Me/First Time Live/One Woman Man/Friends In High Places ... CD
Epic/BGO (UK), 1980s/Early 90s. New Copy 2CD ... $9.99
Four later albums from the great George Jones – packed together in a 2CD set! First up is Still The Same Ole Me – and on the set, George Jones is still definitely the same old me – even if his voice has aged and changed over the years! The album's got some great songs that really hit the more heartbreaking side of the Jones spectrum – which was always his best in later years – and titles include "Couldn't Love Have Picked A Better Time To Die", "Daddy Come Home", "Good Ones & Bad Ones", "You Can't Get The Hell Out Of Texas", "Same Ole Me", and "Together Alone". First Time Live is maybe one of the best George Jones albums of the 80s – a live set, and one that's got this easygoing charm that really holds the whole thing together! Backings are by The Jones Boys, who work perfectly with George – giving him support that feels relaxed and more spontaneous than some of his studio work of the time. Titles include "Tennessee Whiskey", "Fox On The Run", "I'm Not Ready Yet", "Who's Gonna Chop My Baby's Kindling", and "He Stopped Loving Her Today". One Woman Man is an overlooked gem from the end of the 80s – a set that has George hitting some of the vocal moments of his 70s classics, in a mix of tunes that really open up his charms. Titles include "I'm A One Woman Man", "Don't You Ever Get Tired", "Burning Bridges", "Pretty Little Lady From Beaumont Texas", "A Place In The Country", and "Just Out Of Reach". Friends In High Places is a set of duets with some of George's contemporaries, and a whole host of younger talents he inspired – a lineup of guests that includes Shelby Lynne, Emmylou Harris, Randy Travis, Vern Gosdin, Tim Mensy, Ricky Scaggs, and others – on titles that include "A Few Ole Country Boys", "Love's Gonna Live Here", "If I Could Bottle This Up", "I've Been There", "It Hurts As Much In Texas", and "You Can't Do Wrong & Get By".

Nikki SuddenBible Belt (2CD edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Flicknife/Troubadour, 1983. New Copy 2CD ... $13.99 14.99
The first magnificent pairing of Nikki Sudden and Dave Kusworth – a set that's issued under Nikki's name, but which has all the magical energy of their Jacobites recordings together! There's an instantly timeless feel going on here – almost an indie punk refiguration of the best ideas of The Rolling Stones and other giants of the years before – but stripped down into a personal quality that's far more moving – and which almost makes you feel like you've stumbled upon some lost demo recordings from unknown friends of Mick and Keith. But that's only part of the picture, too – as the album's got a great sense of variety – including some female vocals at a few points – all to grace a great run of tracks that include "Six Hip Princes", "Gold Painted Nails", "Cathy", "Chelsea Embankment", "The Road Of Broken Dreams", "The Only Boy In Heaven", and "English Girls". Great 2CD edition – features early sessions from May of 1982 – with titles that include different versions of "Out Of Egypt", "Every Girl Cuts Me In Half", "Feels So Right", "Bethlehem Castle", "Cathy", "The Angels Are Calling", and "Missionary Boy".

Texas boogie badassery from the great ZZ Top – the follow-up to the absolutely killer Tres Hombres! One side features the trio doing what it does best – slaying a live audience, this one at The Warehouse in New Orleans – and the other side features a handful of hard grooving studio tracks. Here ZZ Top proudly promises "hot, spontaneous and presented to you honestly, without the assistance of studio gimmicks." Later on they'd wholy embrace those gimmicks, but boy, did they ever kill it in the mid 70s without that stuff! Includes "Thunderbird", the greasy "Backdoor Medley", "Nasty Dogs And Funky King", "Tush" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the heavy inner sleeve. Cover has ring and edge wear, partially unglued bottom seam, and some stains on back.)

✨✧ Jerry Jeff WalkerMr Bojangles – The Atco/Elektra Years (Mr Bojangles/Five Years Gone/Bein Free/Jerry Jeff/Too Old To Change) (5CD set) ... CD
Atco/Morello (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 5 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Five full albums from Jerry Jeff Walker – presented here in a box set with original album art too! First up is Mr Bojangles – a fantastic early moment from Jerry Jeff Walker – a set that contains the huge "Mr Bojangles", but also features lots of the other sorts of amazing songs that really set Walker apart from the rest! The work is poised perfectly between folk and country – both worlds that would soon revere the smartness of Jerry Jeff's songwriting skills – and a young David Bromberg is an important part of the sound, on both lead acoustic and electric guitar! The production is great – as stripped-down as a folk record, but with some of the sensitivity and jazzier currents of a singer/songwriter album – and in addition to "Mr Bojangles", other tunes include "Gypsy Songman", "I Keep Changin", "Maybe Mexico", "I Makes Money", "Little Bird", "The Ballad Of The Hulk", nd "Round & Round". Next is Five Years Gone – a set with a cover that almost looks like some 80s indie rock record – which is maybe a good indication of just how far Jerry Jeff Walker has stretched out his sound since his debut! The style here is free of the folksier elements of the past – fuller arrangements that have piano and organ doing as much as guitar – mixed with bits of dobro and vibes that shade things with more subtle country colors – even though Jerry Jeff here is a lot less of a country singer than he'd soon become! Instead, there's a very open, honest presentation – on material that is very post-folk, and in a singer/songwriter mode that should have made Walker huge at this point. Titles include "Tracks Run Through The City", "Dead Men Got No Dreams", "Janet Says", "About Her Eyes", "Seasons Change", "Help Me Now", and "Happiness Is A Good Place To Visit But It Was So Sad In Fayetteville". Bein Free is an overlooked classic from Jerry Jeff Walker – and a set that's very different than his crossover pop of a few years before! Walker here really explodes as both the singer and songwriter that would make him an underground legend in the generation of Kris Kristofferson, Kinky Friedman, and Townes Van Zandt – someone who can touch mainstream country with his styles and sound, but who was also in a very separate space – one that was hip enough to get plenty of nods from the cognoscenti in the worlds of rock, folk, and singer/songwriters. The Dixie Flyers back up Jerry Jeff here, and give the record a nicely unified sound – thanks in part to work on piano and dobro from Jim Dickinson – on titles that include "Vince Triple O Martin", "But For The Time", "A Secret", "Nobody's", "Some Go Home", "Where Is The DAR When You Really Need Them", and "I'm Gonna Tell You". On the cover of Jerry Jeff, Walker looks more like a country singer than on previous records – and he maybe sounds more like one too, but with a richness and sensitivity that maybe echoes some of the Elektra albums of the period by Mickey Newbury – although a bit more upbeat too! As with Newbury, Walker's an artist whose songs earned great money for others – but who's always maybe one of the best interpreters of his tunes – working here with offbeat shifts in styles that are far from common country, and which maybe also echo the range of modes that Kris Kristofferson would evoke on his earliest records too. Titles include "Lone Wolf", "Bad News", "I'm Not Strange", "Comfort & Crazy", "Banks Of The Old Bandera", and "Her Good Lovin Grace". Too Old To Change is a record that's maybe a bit too early in the career of Jerry Jeff Walker to earn the "too old" in the name – it was just a bit over a decade since his debut – but it's also clear that Walker has lived a lot of life in the space of time, which you can definitely her in his choice of material and vocal performance. There's less originals than before, but Jerry Jeff does a great job of moving between up-close and personal songs and a few more rockish moments – opening up the sort of space that made his records like this a key bridge between the worlds of Kris Kristofferson and Steve Earle to come. Titles include "Mountains Of Mexico", "Old Nashville Cowboy", "Hands On The Wheel", "I Ain't Living Long Like This", "Too Old To Change", and "Northeast Texas Women". CD

ChainoAfricana & Beyond! (Africana/Percussion For Playboys/bonus tracks) ... CD
Dionysus/Bacchus Archives, Early 60s. New Copy ... $9.99 11.98
A great collection of work from the legendary Chaino – music from two albums, plus bonus tracks too! First up is work from Africana – one of the greatest albums by this enigmatic percussionist – a west coast player who made some killer records during the exotica years of the late 50s and early 60s – most of them a lot more hardcore than some of the work by bigger artists on the scene! Africana is fantastic – a mix of hard percussion and spare drum-driven tunes – often with tribal qualities in both the percussion, and the way that vocals are used – usually more grunts or calls than anything else! There's a bit of guitar at times, some slight piano too – but this is hardly the territory of Martin Denny or Les Baxter – as you'll hear on the cuts "Slave Girl", "Poko Cha Cha", "Walking Bongos", "Swamp Girl", and "Breathing Bongos". The work on Percussion For Playboys is very cool – Chaino percussion, but mixed with some hip LA jazz elements – including excellent work on both tenor and flute, which brings out some really jazzy currents in the music – on titles that include "Watusi Ceremonial Dance", "Jungle Mood", "Johannesburg Blues", "Jungle Love Chant", and "Bad & Beautiful". CD continues with 12 more bonus tracks from a variety of other Chaino recordings over the same period – titles that include "Ubangi Rock", "Gone Ape", "Bongo Stick Boogie", "Jungle Chase", "Torture Of The Mau Mau", "Soo Mak", "Toomba Leero", and "Bongos & Whistling".

VariousStaring At The Rude Boys – The British Ska Revival 1979 to 1989 (3CD set) ... CD
Pressure Drop (UK), 1980s. New Copy 3CD ... $24.99
A deep dive into the big wave of new ska music that exploded in the UK after the early years of punk – music that had clearly been an inspiration to many of the young artists who were coming out of London with a more political vibe, created anew by British groups who helped to give ska and rocksteady a whole new global audience! And sure, in later years the words "ska revival" might make some folks cringe – especially when it spread to these shores – but much of the work here isn't far removed from the original, and some of it even includes earlier artists getting a great second shot – all presented here in a huge 3CD set with dozens of tracks and a big booklet of notes. Features work by Judge Dread, The Specials, Merton Parkas, Laurel Aitken, The Beat, Rimshots, Rico, Wide Boys, Viewers, The RBs, The Odds, Tich Turner's Escalator, Maroon Town, The Loafers, Deltones, Rude Boys, JJ Allstars, Kim Wilde, The Selector, Lambrettas, Tigers, Charlie Parkas, The Gangsters, Arthur Kay's Originals, Bad Manners, Bodysnatchers, and many others.

Alex PudduGolden Age Of Danish Pornography Vol 2 ... CD
Schema (Italy), 2014. New Copy ... $16.99
A really beautiful little set of tracks – music composed to accompany vintage porn films from the 70s – played to perfection by the great Alex Puddu! The story behind the project is great – a friend was involved in rescuing and issuing rare porn from the underground – most of which no longer had any sort of soundtrack. Puddu was called in because of his skills with vintage-styled grooves – and stepped up perfectly with the sweet instrumentals you'll hear in this wet – tracks that are heavy on sweet keyboards, slinky basslines, and funky guitars – often served up with tighter, funkier styles than you'd hear in the original films – even though the overall sound is still very vintage. There's lots of Fender Rhodes on the set – and titles include "Hot Mouth", "Horny At The Office", "Boys & Girls & Danish Hot Dogs", "She Wants It Black", "After Party", and "Bad Love". CD

A classic moment from Frederick "Toots" Hibbert – a set that's maybe his equivalent to some of the key Island Records albums of the 70s from Bob Marley & The Wailers! Like those, the production here is top-shelf – handled partly by Joe Boyd, who brings a very respectful vibe to the set – and perhaps even goes for more of the soulful currents in Toots' vocals than before – at least in ways that might cross over more to American and British audiences than in the early days. Hibbert really seems to take to the spirit of the moment, and rises up with these beautifully expressive passages – of the sort that he may never have hit this well again! Titles include "Everybody Needs Lovin", "Living In The Ghetto", "So Bad", "Never You Change", "Rastaman", "Premature", and "Reggae Got Soul". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousSongs Of Leon Russell ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $14.99 19.99
Leon Russell's a shaggy-haired legend, with one of the most distinct styles in 70s rock – but the singer was also a songwriter and key studio talent in the 60s – already a very big influence in American music, long before he got his time in the spotlight! Russell's always known for having a deeply soulful approach to his music – and that quality definitely shows through here – in material that's all penned by Leon, and taken on by a host of talents in a nicely wide range of styles – soul, rock, country, and even a bit of jazz – all showing the depth of a Leon Russell tune, and how much it can open up in different sorts of interpretations! The set follows in the best tradition of the songwriter series on Ace Records – opening up our understanding of a figure in the backstage, but who lurks behind such key cuts as "Make Love To The Music" by Maria Muldaur, "Alcatraz" by Nazareth, "This Masquerade" by George Benson, "Love's Supposed To Be That Way" by California, "The Loser" by Gary Lewis & The Playboys, "Lonesome & A Long Way From Home" by Earl Scruggs, "Rainbow In Your Eyes" by Al Jarreau, "Land Of Oz" by Le Cirque, "Me & Baby Jane" by Jose Feliciano, "Delta Lady" by Joe Cocker, "Groupie" by Delaney & Bonnie, "Time For Love" by Randy Crawford, "Raspberry Rug" by Bobby Whitlock, "You Look Like The Devil" by Willie Nelson, and the duet on "If It Wasn't For Bad" between Elton John and Leon Russell. 21 tracks in all – and detailed notes on each track!

✨✧ Nick ToschesSave The Last Dance For Satan (paperback) ... Book
Norton/Kicks, 2011. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Yeah, THIS is the Nick Tosches we want! Tosches has a way of chronicling the diseased, mobbed up underbelly of the 20th Century music rackets that's simply unrivaled – it's gut level brilliant and street smart writing like no one does anymore. Save The Last Dance For Satan is a more fleshed out and newly spun continuation of material published more than a decade ago as Hipsters And Hoodlums, in Vanity Fair magazine (boy, mainstream magazine content sure has changed a bunch since 2000) – chronicling the sleaze and criminality at the core of the 50s & 60s music biz. It's great! His best stuff has often read with the sweaty, intoxicating allure of seedy pulp storytelling, so it's an utmost pleasure to see his work put out by Kicks Books - which literally puts Tosches' work in just that kind of old school hip pocket paperback! He joins Andre Williams (whose "Jailbait" single is mentioned early in this book as the badass antidote to mid 50s candy-coated rock & roll that it most certainly was) and Sun Ra at Kicks. A couple of Tosches' more recent books have been a tough slog – more about his own near obsessive search for impossibly hidden subjects than anything else – but this slim 120 page tome is the opposite – it has us slobbering for more.
