✨✧ Jakky Boy & The Bad BunchJakky Boy & The Bad Bunch ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1985. Used ... $9.99
The second set from Jakky Boy & The Bunch – an overlooked group with a great 80s groove – one who started things out during the later years of Salsoul, and sound equally nice here on Atlantic! The album's a bit more polished than the group's debut, but still has all that street soul crackle we like in their music – 80s funk, with heavy emphasis on beats and basslines – handled with a tightness that keeps a focus on all the best elements in the grooves, without trying to much for a catchy hook or crossover hit. There's plenty of electro keyboards throughout – and titles include "Are You Ready", "Talking Japanese", "Don't Go", "Your Love Has Turned Me Out", "Rock Your Body", "Teaser", and "What Are You Gonna Do". CD

Jakky Boy & The Bad BunchI've Been Watching You (with bonus track) ... CD
Salsoul/Octave (Japan), 1983. New Copy ... $22.99
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)".

One of Easy Mo Bee's best set of tracks, and nice rhymes from Craig Mack! Includes the classic "Flava In Ya Ear", the cautionary "When God Comes", "Get Down", "Real Raw" – with a nice flip of his first single "Get Retarded." CD

Janelle MonaeDirty Computer ... CD
Bad Boy, 2018. New Copy ... $9.99 18.98
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! CD

The last great Notorious BIG single issued in his lifetime! "Hypnotize" gets your head nodding right out of the gate, Puffy & company's production bringing a funky heft to that impeccably sampled bass groove from Herb Alpert's "Rise", Biggie spitting pure charisma all the way through, and Pam Long's riff on "La Di Da Di" elevating it that much closer to perfection. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Ace Of CupsIt's Bad For You But Buy It! ... LP
Big Beat (UK), 1968. New Copy ... $22.99 26.99
A long-overdue full length album from Ace Of Cups – a really unusual female group from the Bay Area scene of the late 60s – but one who never hit the heights of their bigger San Francisco contemporaries! The girls have this really great look on the back – kind of flower power, but with a bit more charm – a quality that comes through in the music, with is often more garagey than trippy – but which also has a way of putting forth female vocals and honest ideas that might not flourish this strongly for similar groups until the post-punk years. That approach makes the whole thing a truly timeless collection of tracks – of the sort that maybe resonate more strongly today than they did back in the 60s. Titles include "Music", "Glue", "Taste Of One", "Stones", "Pretty Boy", "Waller Street Blues", "Simplicity", and a great version of "Afro Blue". LP, Vinyl record album

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".

✨✧ Chris ClarkSoul Sounds (with bonus track) ... CD
Motown/Reel Music, 1967. Used ... $14.99
A great Motown album from Chris Clark – one of the few white singers ever signed to the label, and a great vocalist at that! Chris has a sound that's quite unique – halfway between Motown soul and some of the soul-inspired pop of the time – particularly that of UK singers like Dusty Springfield and some of her generation. There's a proud, bold sound here – all Motown in the backings, and often done with the kind of tightly-stepping grooves that have made some of Chris' singles big ones on the Northern Soul scene over the years. Titles include "I Want To Go Back There Again", "Day By Day Or Never", "From Head To Toe", "Sweeter As The Days Go By", "Do Right Baby Do Right", "Born To Love You Baby", "Love's Gone Bad", and "Whisper You Love Me Boy". CD also features a previously unreleased alternate stereo mix of "Do Right Baby Do Right" – and the overall package is amazing – with a 20 page full-color booklet that includes long notes on Clark's career, vintage photos, and even session details for the album!

A monster album of 70s salsa – and one that has bad boy Willie Colon taking the Latin world by storm – forging the new sound that would push him and the New York scene into the frontline of 70s Latin! Willie's got a strength on the set that's very much in keeping with his machine gun pose on the cover – a no-nonsense salsa groove that's overflowing with righteous pride and youthful energy – consciously aware of its new direction, and not afraid to show it! The album features the classic dancefloor groover "Che Che Cole", plus the tracks "Lo Me Llores Mas", "Sonero Mayor", "Sangrigorda", "Ausencia", and "Te Conozco". LP, Vinyl record album

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.

The third album from The Faces and a straight up masterpiece of charismatic, sweaty, swaggery early 70s rock and roll! We were pretty late in acknowledging the badassery of Rod Stewart during this period, both solo and with The Faces, and boy does this record ever sound amazing to us now! The love these Brits have for soul, rhythm and blues is real, too – which makes it work on a deeper level.

About half the album features cool instrumental tunes from Mike Leander – scored in that weird mix of touches that he was using in his "rock to easy" years – and these cuts are interspersed with vocal numbers by Paul Jones, sung in a dramatic style that's a bit Bowie, but with more blue eyed soul. Titles include "Free Me", "It's Overotherness Time", "I'm Alright Jackboot", "I've Been A Bad Bad Boy", and "Stephen". LP, Vinyl record album

Ben E KingRise Of Ben E King – 1959 to 1963 ... CD
Atlantic/Contrast, Late 50s/Early 60s. Used ... $3.99
A set that does a great job of opening up the early years of this wonderful soul singer – a collection that not only features Ben E King's initial solo classics, but also his incredible lead work with The Drifters – plus a pair of rare duets with Atlantic Records' R&B powerhouse Lavern Baker! King in The Drifters is wonderful – a different voice than previous star Clyde McPhatter, and one who really humanized the group – even when they were hitting a newer groove for the 60s soul generation – and Ben continued that mature, sophisticated style in his own music too – tracks that are able to sound heartbreaking, but completely in charge of their emotions too. King's maybe least familiar on the two duets with Baker – "A Help Each Other Romance" and "How Often" – but those cuts are also a great demonstration of his range as well. Other titles include "Dance With Me", "I Count The Tears", "Oh My Love", "Amor", "Young Boy Blues", "First Taste Of Love", "Brace Yourself", "Too Bad", "Don't Drive Me Away", "Walking In The Footsteps Of A Fool", "Tell Daddy", and "I'm Standing By".

Tommy Boy, 1991. Used ... $3.99
Their first LP and a high water mark for the Flavor Unit. The thing that still gets us open on this debut is that Naughty By Nature managed to bridge the gap between commercially viable, radio friendly hip hop and street credibility, plus had tight enough rhymes and mic skills to please even the true heads. 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".

Mercury, 1973. Very Good+ ... $24.99
"I need a fix – and a kiiiiiiiiiissssssss!" What can we say? Johnny Thunders, David Johansen and the boys reinvented the wheel with the of wildly hedonist glam skronk spun on this still incredible debut record. Both records they made for Mercury are incredible, but this is the bonafide masterpiece. It's a classic purely on a primal rock 'n' roll level, but it's also one of rock's greatest examples of style equaling substance! The Dolls brought glammer to the gutter and vice versa, and this is no doubt their greatest moment! Includes "Personality Crisis", "Looking For A Kiss", "Trash", "Frankenstein", "Pills", "Bad Girl", "Private World" and "Jet Boy". Produced by Todd Rundgren and engineered by Jack Douglas – the former a legend in his own right, the latter whose name appears on so many great records that range from other proto-punk and punk-era classics (Patti Smith Group, The Runaways) to the trashier side of the mainstream (prime early Cheap Trick, Aerosmith and Alice Cooper).

Randy NewmanRandy Newman (original cover) ... LP
Reprise, 1969. Near Mint- ... $19.99
An insanely wonderful first album from Randy Newman – and a perfect example of the way his unique style was a key confluence of all the best elements simmering underneath both late 60s LA and late 60s Warner Brothers! There's an instantly nostalgic quality to the record, but one that's nicely undercut by Newman's familiar sense of wit – a bit more subtle here, and presented with amazing backings from Van Dyke Parks – who almost brings in a lightly symphonic touch at times. The work's almost in the vein of hipper jazz sides by Bob Dorough or Dave Frishberg at the time – and although some of the tunes are familiar from later versions, they still sound best here in Randy's originals.

Randy NewmanRandy Newman (second cover) ... LP
Reprise, 1969. Near Mint- ... $16.99
An insanely wonderful first album from Randy Newman – and a perfect example of the way his unique style was a key confluence of all the best elements simmering underneath both late 60s LA and late 60s Warner Brothers! There's an instantly nostalgic quality to the record, but one that's nicely undercut by Newman's familiar sense of wit – a bit more subtle here, and presented with amazing backings from Van Dyke Parks – who almost brings in a lightly symphonic touch at times. The work's almost in the vein of hipper jazz sides by Bob Dorough or Dave Frishberg at the time – and although some of the tunes are familiar from later versions, they still sound best here in Randy's originals.

✨✧ Ray Parker JrFor Those Who Like To Groove – The Essential Ray Parker Jr & Raydio ... CD
Arista/Big Break (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
For those who like to groove, Ray Parker Jr is often the obvious choice – as the man's got a cool, classy style that helped redefine the role of the male singer in soul for a whole new generation – but also almost always finds a way to make things move! Parker began recording during the height of the disco years, but right from the start he was always looking forward to something new – in territory matched by contemporaries like Frankie Beverly or Teddy Pendergrass, which aimed for a modern soul style that was perfect for the maturing audience of the time – yet which still could come across with an undeniable hook and groove. And while Ray's hits are pretty well known, the many recorded a heck of a lot more great music – both as a solo act, and with his Raydio group too – a good deal of which is included on this set. Like other BBR collections, this one features a fair bit of mixes from singles alongside album cuts – and titles include "Jack & Jill", "A Woman Needs Love", "All In The Way You Get Down (12" rmx)", "Hot Stuff", "Is This A Love Song (single version)", "More Than One Way To Love A Woman (single)", "Two Places At The Same Time", "Honey I'm Rich", "Get Down", "Still In The Groove", "Betcha Can't Love Me Just Once", "Tonight's The Night", "Stay The Night", "After Midnite", "One Sided Love Affair", "Over You", "The People Next Door", "Ghostbusters (12" version)", "The Other Woman (12" vesion)", "Let Me Go (single)", "I Don't Think That Man Should Sleep Alone (12" version)", "Girls Are More Fun (single", and "Bad Boy".

James RoyalCall My Name – Selected Recordings 1964 to 1970 ... CD
CBS/RPM (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $6.99 13.99
You may not know the name of James Royal, but you'll definitely be calling it out after hearing this sweet little set – a long-overdue collection that finally brings attention to his great British recordings in the 60s! James was one of those excellent UK singers from the 60s who could effortlessly pick up influences from American soul – part of a crowd before the years of bigger singers who'd take the style to a more global audience – and maybe more rooted in the deeper currents of R&B and soul. Yet Royal also gets great help here on many tracks from arranger Keith Mansfield – who you might know from his funky sound library material – and Mansfield brings in a very groovy, very mod approach that really makes things take off – adding sophistication that takes the sound past simple bluesy rock or gritty R&B – with wicked charts that mix strings, funky bits, and other cool touches – really elevating the James Royal sound. Titles include "I Can't Stand It", "A Woman Called Sorrow", "Time Hangs On My Mind", "I've Something Bad On My Mind", "Thru The Love", "Green Days", "Hey Little Boy", "Send Out Love", "Sitting In The Station", "Which Way To Nowhere", "And Soon The Darkness", and "I'm Going Home".

Schoolly DSaturday Night! - The Album (Jive pressing) ... LP
Jive, 1987. Very Good- ... $6.99
The classic by Schoolly D – his second album, and the one where he really hits his stride – with profane humor and classic drum machine and oddball sample flavored production! It's almost hard-to-believe nowadays, but the un-PC rhymes were straight up scandalous back in the day – but Schoolly's laidback, charismatic delivery always tempered that language in our minds, and the production sounds fresh to this day. Not everyone agrees with us, but this is definitely one of our favorite favorite hip hop records of the later 80s! Inspired cuts include the title cut, "B-Boy Rhyme and Riddle", "We Get Ill", "Parkside 5-2", "We Get Ill", and the Code Money DJ track, "It's Krack", "Dis Groove Is Bad", "Get N' Paid", "Do It Do It" and the rest LP, Vinyl record album

Skyy grooving along in that bass-heavy early 80s mode – picking up a bit of pop soul along the way, with an approach that should have broken bigger on the charts, given the catchy vocals of most of the tracks. Most of this sounds a bit dated these days – with a "funk" approach that's kind of watered-down Rick James or Michael Jackson – but the mellower cuts still hold up a bit. Tunes include "Swing It", "Bad Boy", "Show Me The Way", "Hey Girl", "She's Gone", and "Married Man". LP, Vinyl record album

Includes the sublime "Bad Boy" by The Jive Bombers, plus "Misery", "Lost In A Dream", and "Head Hunter" by Johnny Otis; "Hot Rod" and "Cornbread" by Hal Singer; "Marie", "Count Every Star", and "Old Man River" by The Ravens; "Candy" and "Mean To Me" by Big Maybelle, and "The Hucklebuck" by Paul Williams.

✨✧ New York DollsHard Night's Day ... CD
Norton, 1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Some of the first recordings ever made by the New York Dolls – a blistering session of 21 demos that were all cut in one night during March of 1973 – creating the sound that formed the blueprint for their classic albums to come! The vibe here is maybe what you would have heard, had you caught the group at one of their legendary Mercer Arts shows – as the tunes are raw, noisy, and effortlessly blend early rock and early punk energy in their performance! The group's got a very fresh sound – having just begun working with second drummer Jerry Nolan – and the guitars from Johnny Thunders and Sylvain Sylvain are razor-sharp throughout. Titles include "Jet Boy", "Looking For A Kiss", "Seven Day Weekend", "Frankenstein", "Who Are The Mystery Girls", "Showdown", "Bad Girl", "Pills", "Personality Crisis", "Don't Start Me Talkin", "Lonely Planet Boy", "Subway Train", "It's Too Late", and "Bad Detective".

✨✧ Junior ParkerYou Don't Have To Be Black To Love The Blues ... LP
Groove Merchant, 1971. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
A fitting title to this one – as it virtually describes the standard that the blues business was operating on during the early 70s – as artists came out of the shadows and found big audiences on college campuses, rock clubs, and other crossover scenes! The concept is carried to the Nth degree on the cover – which has a front image of a young Asian boy eating a big watermelon, Sambo-style – and the back cover features notes that say things like "Chinese kids like watermelon, Irish like bagels, black people like Jewish rye, and today everybody loves the Blues." Fortunately, this comic packaging doesn't affect the album too much – as Junior's still in the fine form he was at the end of the 60s, cruising between blues and soul, with a slight touch of jazz, in a unique way that sounds better to our ears than the work of most of his contemporaries. Titles include "Five Long Years", "That's Alright", "Way Back Home", "Man Or Mouse", and "I Like Your Style". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousPrecious Years – 34 Teen Dance Hits From The Bear Family Archive ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The kids on the cover might look pretty mainstream, but the sounds on the record are in the best tradition of rockabilly and hillbilly styles of the Bear Family label! The set's overflowing with romping little gems that work equally well far from a dancefloor filled with gals in skirts and guys in cardigans – raw rockers that sound wonderful after all these years, and which show that there's plenty to discover in the 50s and 60s scenes, way past the hits! You'll recognize a few of these names, but in the best Bear Family style, the tunes included are much more obscure – and laid out next to great work by lesser-known gems too – presented with wonderful sound, and very detailed notes. Titles include "I Really Really Love You" by JoAnn Campbell, "Man Like Wow" by Tommy Sands, "Let Me Be Your Hero" by Terry Noland, "Feel So Good" by Johnny Preston, "My Chick Is Fine" by Gus Backus, "While You're Dancing" by Marty Robbins, "If You Don't Want My Lovin" by Carl Dobkins, "You Want Love" by Clyde Stacy, "One Summer Night" by The Danleers, "Meet Mr Mud" by Bob Luman, "Lana" by Roy Orbison, "Modern Romance" by Sanford Clark, "Heaven's Plan" by Lefty Frizzell, and "Bad Boy" by Robin Luke.

✨✧ Siegel Schwall Band953 West ... CD
Wooden Nickel/Wounded Bird, 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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". CD

Fat City (UK), 2001. Near Mint- 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Not just another funky 45 collection! (But even it it was, would that really be such a problem?) This set's an extremely soulful batch of tunes, all from rare 45s, with an emphasis on funky rhythms, to be sure – but also a really strong soul-orientation overall, such that most of the tunes are sublime vocal numbers that work well on a number of different levels. The groove here is hard heavy soul – mostly of the southern-oriented type, but also a bit of rougher northern work, all inflected by hard drums and heavy bass work. Titles include "Doin It" by The Minx, "We Got Soul" by Bad & Good Boys, "Riff Raff" by Music Through Six, "We Got To Love One Another" by The Rock, "Share It" by Rev Coleman, "Tick Tock Baby" by The Quickest Way Out, "Boo Boo Song" by King Coleman, "Yes I Do" by Something Real, "We Can Learn Together" by Joann Garret, and "He's A Bad One" by Kent Meade.

Love UnlimitedFrom A Girl's Point Of View ... LP
Uni/Mercury, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
Great stuff – the beginning of the Love Unlimited dynasty! As we're sure you know, Barry White produced this little gem of a record, and the album was a key proving ground for many of his stone cold soul production ideas before he went off and started doing the lead vocals himself. The White genius is very firmly in place – and is fantastic here mixed with female lead vocals – with this strong current of soul at the bottom, sweeping strings on the top, and a surprisingly badass sound that really makes the record different than most other girl group records. The trio of lovelies that makes up Love Unlimited do a perfect job with Barry's arrangements – singing heavenly harmonies on tracks like "If This World Were Mine", "Is It Really True Boy – Is It Really Me", and the stunning "Walking In The Rain With The One I Love", which has one of the best telephone monologues you'll ever hear on a soul track!

Tortured souls and troubled hearts – served up here in a dark set of narratives from the classic years of country music! As with previous volumes in this excellent series, the package goes way beyond the big hits, to turn up lots of great songs from the shadowy corners of country – songs about bad deeds and poor choices – handled by a variety of different singers who really keep things interesting! There's way more love of the music here than the sense of kitsch you might expect from the cover – and although you might first find the songs appealing from a gimmicky perspective, we can bet that you'll be getting the message before long. Titles include "Dead Man's Cave" by Bobby Griggs, "Marbone Swamp" by Bill Browning & The Dark Hollow Boys, "Endless Sleep" by Hank Williams Jr, "There Ain't No Grave Gonna Hold My Body Down" by Bobby Grove, "Dark Day In Dallas" by Tex Ritter, "Bury Me Face Down" by Cowboy Copas, "No Hiding Place" by Sunshine Boys Quartet, "Satan's Jeweled Crown" by The Louvin Brothers, and "East Dallas Dagger" by Durwood Daily.

A heady dip back into the 60s – all served up by the mighty Jon Savage, who's written plenty on this pivotal time in modern music! The 2LP set is a condensation of the energy that Jon brought to his CD collections on Ace for the years 1965 through 1968 – and it focuses even more strongly on tracks that set the scene for all the changes to come – music that might sometimes seem subtle, but which had a real power to both signal coming change, and make it happen! All the tracks here are from singles – as you'd guess from the title – and tracks include "Rain" by Kak, "Train To Nowhere" by Savoy Brown, "Never Ever" by The Action, "Slim Jenkins' Place" by Booker T & The MGs, "I'm Five Years Ahead Of My Time" by The Third Bardo, "Bad Little Woman" by The Wheel A Ways, "The Other Place" by The Seeds, "Tell Me That You Love Me" by James Brown, "Agent Double O Soul" by Edwin Starr, "Too Many People" by The Leaves, "We Sell Soul" by The Spades, "Incense" by The Anglos, "That's The Way It's Got To Be" by The Poets, "Danse A La Musique" by The French Fries, "Wonderboy" by The Kinks, "Kick Out The Jams (preview pressing)" by MC5, "Hold On" by Sharon Tandy, "At The Third Stroke" by The Picadilly Line, "Sock It To Em JB (part 2)" by Rex Garvin & The Mighty Cravers, and "Help Me Get The Feeling (part 1)" by Ray Sharpe with the King Curtis Orchestra.

✨✧ 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.

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".

The lesser-known "Lightnin'" of the postwar blues years – and a hell of a bluesman, heard here on some early sides for Excello Records! Lightnin Slim's got this raw, rootsy voice that's brimming with power – an approach that would have been great enough on its own, even with only a bit of Slim's guitar in the backing – but which also gets stunning support on nearly every track by a range of different blues harmonica powerhouse players – including Lazy Lester on more than half of these tracks, plus work by Cleve White and Schoolboy Cleve (are they the same?) All tracks were recorded in a very stripped-down mode, with all the power the early Excello label could offer – and the set also features some unreleased tracks, in addition to Slim's rare singles of the time. Titles include "West Texas", "Bad Luck", "I'm Grown", "Goin Home", "Bad Luck & Trouble", "I'm Him", "I Can't Be Successful", "What Evil Have I Done", "Bed Bug Blues", "It's Mighty CRazy", "Have Your Way", and "I'm A Rollin Stone".
