Beat Bronco Organ TrioRoad Trip (with bonus download) ... LP
Rocafort (UK), 2020. New Copy ... $24.99 26.99
The Beat Bronco Organ Trio are more than great enough at the core, but they also offer up some great surprises over the course of this fantastic full length album – including slight use of clavinet and mini-moog by Gabri Casanova, who mostly handles the Hammond in the lead – and guest work at a few spots from Chip Wickham on flute and electric piano! There's a few other players who drop in along the way – but the core groove here is from the trio, who not only replicate a 60s soul jazz vibe, but also move things through a deep funk legacy – maybe more in the mode of the Sugarman Three than a Don Patterson or Jack McDuff combo on Prestige – as there are rhythms and elements that pick up bits of 70s funk. Drums are by Antonio Pax Alvarez and guitar is by Lucas De Mulder – and titles include "Hard Play", "Crispy Time", "Easy Baby", "Hey Hey", "Squirtly", "Under Pressure", "Road Trip", and "Electro Pi".

✨✧ English BeatI Just Can't Stop It ... LP
Sire, 1980. Near Mint- ... $29.99
The first album from The English Beat – and not only is it one of the most essential of the English ska revival era of the late 70s and early 80s – it's one the most enduring records of 1980 in any genre! The English Beat, like the best of their peers, used ska and rocksteady inspiration to fuel their own contemporary UK sound – and it sounds great to this day! The rhythms and tighter and punchier here than on later records, with some pop, mod and soul lacing their songwriting and vocals, too. A landmark! Includes "Mirror In The Bathroom", "Hands Off. . .She's Mine", "Twist & Crawl", "Big Shot", "Best Friend", "Jackpot" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Mestizo BeatCanoga Madness ... LP
California Soul Music, 2020. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An excellent album from a group who've really got the right sort of name – as the music here is equal parts Latin and soul, with plenty of funky elements at the core – very much in the best 70s style of the west coast Chicano Soul generation! The music is all instrumental – heavy on percussion next to the drums at the core – with riffing guitar, heavy bass, and a great use of jazzier elements on keyboards and saxes – which really elevates the music past standard funk, into territory that's often as rich as our favorite groups with a similar groove from back in the day! Most tracks are instrumental, but Terin Ector sings on "Find A Better Way" – next to other tracks that include "When Walls Fall", "Canoga Madness", "ANTFBS", "Lizard Brain", "El Camino Del Caballo", and "Osvaldo's Rebellion".

Stones Throw, 2007. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Hazy beatcraft steeped in Indian soundtrack style funk, strings and percussion from the indefatigable Madlib – Volume 3 in the increasingly adventurous and conceptual outings of the Beat Konducta! This time out Madlib, er, Beat Konducta is conducting beats, strings & things from India and/or otherwise East – but the way in which the beats bluntly thump is quintessential Madlib – you know it and love it from the first beat! 'Lib really breathes fresh life into this approach – going miles deeper than anyone out there doing the Bollywood-hip hop hybrid – coming up with a sound all his own. Masterful! "Onthanewthing", "Indian Deli", "Rumble", "Dancing Girls Theme", "Piano Garden", "Dark Alley Incidental Music", "Early Party", "Fifth Chant", "The Rip Off (Scene 3)", and "Sitar Ride".

Verve, 1965. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A really wonderful back to basics session for Basie – featuring arrangements by longtime band members Frank Foster, Erick Dixon, Bobby Plater, and Thad Jones! The set also features vocals on 2 tracks by bluesy vocalist Richard Boone – a singer with a really great scatting approach – but overall, the real strength is the horn section, particularly Al Aarons, Dixon, and Eddie Lockjaw Davis – who all get in some very nice solo work. Tracks are mostly older numbers, Basie-ized – and played with a laidback tone that's a real contrast from the higher energy early 60s recordings. Titles include "Squeeze Me", "Frankie & Johnny", "Boone's Blues", "I Got Rhythm", and "Hey Jim". LP, Vinyl record album

Beatfanatic & OthersBeatfanatic Presents Beat Traveler – Scandinavian Soundscapes ... CD
Rambling (Japan), 2007. Used ... $19.99
A collection of Beatfanatic tunes and other tracks he's remixed – put together with enough depth to stand as a Beatfanatic album on its own! The European beat maker's touches are all over the set – which has a bristling, crisp sort of feel that's totally great – a style that's somewhat cosmic, but never too much so – and which brings in elements of hip hop to the rhythms, but never lets them take over. Most tunes have a bit of a jazzy vibe, which is part of Beatfanatic's approach – and the CD also features 5 tracks that are either completely unreleased, or unreleased edits. Titles include "Colors (Beatfanatic rmx)" by Charlie Void, "VSOP (Beatfanatic edit)" by Stockholm Cyclo, "O Mundo E Seu (Beatfanatic rmx)" by Roman Andren, "Le Voyage" by Stockholm Cyclo, "Just Can't Get Away From You (Beatfanatic rmx)" by Secret Stealth, "Amber Lady (Beatfanatic rmx)" by Roman Andren, "A New Style" by Southside Break Crew, and the cuts "Let Us Pray (ext mix)", "Broken Descarga (12" mix)", and "Disco Skank" by Beatfanatic.

✨✧ Art Blakey & The Afro-Drum EnsembleAfrican Beat ... CD
Blue Note, 1962. Used ... $9.99
A completely righteous mix of jazz and African percussion – put together by drummer Art Blakey at a time when he was riding high with the Jazz Messengers, but also was willing to work on great experiments like this! The album's years ahead of its time – and arguably opens the door for countless spiritual jazz projects like this in the 70s, more proof that Blakey was a groundbreaking artist who was always opening doors for others! Blakey's own work on drums is joined by percussion from Montego Joe, Chief Bey, Garvin Masseux, James Ola, Folami, Robert Crowder, and Solomon Ilori – the last of whom would record his own record for Blue Note – and the rest of the group features Yusef Lateef on flute and tenor, Curtis Fuller on trombone, and the great Ahmed Abdul-Malik on bass – a great choice for the record, given that he was mixing together similar modes on his own records of the time. Titles include "Tobi Ilu", "Love, The Mystery Of", and "Obirin African". CD

Brother Dan All StarsLet's Catch The Beat (180 gram orange vinyl pressing) ... LP
Trojan/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
A classic album from the late 60s run of Trojan producer Dandy – working here under the guise of Brother Dan All-Stars – with a lineup that features some secret help from the rest of the Trojan scene! The groove is mostly rocksteady, with the strongly soulful current that Dandy brought to his own records too – and there's a few points in which the rhythms actually crackle with a slight current of funk – in a way that shows the Transatlantic appeal of the work that Dan was doing at the time! Titles include "The Bunk", "Freedom", "Dream", "Lee's Farewell", "One More Dance", "Mello Music", "Life Can Be Beautiful", "Everybody Feel Good", and "Since I Met You Baby". LP, Vinyl record album

Fonit/Schema (Italy), 1973. New Copy ... $12.99
Exactly the kind of record that makes us love sound library records so much – and definitely the sort that sets the style apart from anything else we can think of! Both Sandro Brugnolini and Giorgio Carnini turn in some great work here – a mindblowing mix of modes over the space of ten short tracks – some tunes a cascading array of instrumentation, in a hip groove that's neither American jazz or soundtrack funk, but a special space of its own! Other tunes use an electronic approach that's years ahead of its time – as groovy as 60s analogue, but a lot darker, too – in ways that the rest of the world might not touch until the German new wave. The balance is almost even between swinging groovers and darker electronic cuts – and titles include "Grinta", "Azione CIA", "Scalo Clandestino", "Alambicco Cibernetico", "Strutture Generative", "Omicido Bianco", and "CIA Massacre".

✨✧ Junior BylesBeat Down Babylon (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Doctor Bird (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99 24.99
Tremendous work from Junior Byles – a singer with a sweet voice that would have been right at home in the rocksteady years, but which is maybe even more powerful here in a roots session produced by Lee Scratch Perry! That special Perry magic really helps balance things out with Junior's vocals – a raspy edge in the rhythms that reminds us of the deeper qualities of the lyrics – echoed by Byles as he uses his personal soul to enforce their ideas – following a shift in Jamaican music that's similar to the Marvin Gaye shift at the start of the 70s! Titles include "I've Got A Feeling", "Don't Know Why", "Coming Again", "Beat Down Babylon", "A Place Called Africa", and "Poor Chubby". 2CD set features an insane number of bonus tracks – 41 more numbers in all, pulled from singles and other recordings – with titles that include "Curley Locks", "Dreader Locks", "Militant Rock", "Fun & Games", "Motion Dub", "Ungrateful Skank", "Rasta No Pick Pocket", "Come Da Da", "Righteous Oily", "King Of Babylon", "Africa Stand", and "Rub Up Festival 71".

Chris ConnellyHeart Has To Ache Before It Learns To Beat – The Lyrics & Poems Of Chris Connely ... Book
Shipwrecked, 2020. New Copy ... $20.99 29.99
Chris Connelly is a hell of a singer – a man with a god-like voice that we'd rank right up there next to David Bowie and Scott Walker – and we're sometimes so entranced by the sound of his voice that we actually forget to listen to the lyrics of his songs, which are equally great! This book more than corrects that bad habit of ours, and brings a special focus to the talents of Connelly with the pen – collecting over forty years of lyrics and other writing in one really massive book – 450 pages worth of words that Chris penned for every one of his solo albums, plus his work in other groups, and even collaborations with other artists and some unused lyrics too! We could stuff the description by mentioning Connelly's ties to groups like Ministry or Fini Tribe, or talking about the collaborations with Meshell N'Degeocello or KMFDM – but the man himself is the core of the book, and the wealth of his writings in one place is really stunning. The songs read like poems, maybe even coming across more so in the space of silence without music – and the huge book is a wonderful tribute to the dedication and craft that Connelly has brought to his long career. Softcover, 451 pages. Book

RCA/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), Early 60s. New Copy 8CD ... $44.99
A legendary run of music from the late, great Sam Cooke – almost all of his recordings for RCA Records, packaged here in one sweet little package! The scope of the set is wonderful – and almost something of a revelation, given that a number of these titles have never appeared on CD in the US before – making this collection a real discovery in soul music! Cooke first came out of the underground in the late 50s – and by the time he hit RCA, was really ready to take on new challenges – recording some key tracks that would help redefine the sound of soul for the 60s – and also working on some special album projects that expanded the range of work that he was handling – showing off some great sides of his talents. The set features the killer live album One Night Stand – recorded at the Harlem Square Club – plus the studio albums Cooke's Tour, Hits Of The 50s, Swing Low, My Kind Of Blues, Twistin The Night Away, Mr Soul, and Night Beat – all packaged in these cool little LP-styled sleeves!

Wonderful mellow work from Sam Cooke – and a set that's recorded with a sound that's very much in keeping with the "night beat" that you might expect from the title! In fact, there's not so much a "beat" as a simple easy groove – a gentle sort of "night" feeling, with some piano in the lead on many tracks, and backing by a larger group conducted by Rene Hall – a great setting that lets Cooke hit some of his most soulful moments on record from the time! The album includes many lesser-known Cooke performances – including "Trouble Blues", "You Gotta Move", "Fool's Paradise", "Lost & Lookin", and "Mean Old World". CD

There's something of a clubby vibe to the record – and most of the album was recorded in the US, with a fair bit of synthesizer and guitar, in kind of a colder post-new wave groove. Titles include a few great later classics – his remake of "Harley David, Son Of A Bitch", which really broke Serge to a whole new generation of listeners – plus his classic duet with daughter Charlotte Gainsbourg on the great "Lemon Incest" – one of the best songs ever about the virtues of father/daughter love! Other titles include "Sorry Angel", "I'm The Boy", "Kiss Me Hardy", "No Comment", and "Hmm Hmm Hmm". CD

Malaco/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1988. New Copy ... $14.99
An under-discovered batch of jazzy soul from Bobbi Humphrey – an artist we love for her 70s work on Blue Note and Epic, still sounding pretty great here in the late 80s! The overall style of the album's a bit different than Bobbi's 70s work – more in a Patrice Rushen blend of 80s groove R&B styles and jazzy flourishes – and the whole set was done in collaboration with arranger Tommy James, who also plays a lot of keyboards on the set. Bobbi's flute work is as sweet as ever – especially on the mellower, more laidback tracks – and even her occasional vocals still sound pretty nice too! Titles include "Tropical Voyage", "Loop 12", "Come Get To This", "Days Of You & Me", "What The Heart Needs", and "City Beat". CD

A fantastic album that brings together all of the European winners of the recent Downbeat polls – like Karin Krog, John Surman, Albert Mangelsdorff, Francy Boland, Daniel Humair, and Niels Henning Orsted-Pedersen. The sextet is a lively batch of free-swinging European jazz stylists, with touches of modernism that keep the whole session on edge throughout – in a way that's right up there with the best of the classic MPS sessions! The highlight of the set is Karin Krog's beautiful vocal version of "Maiden Voyage", but there's loads of other nice bits – like "Winter Song", "Ryoan-Ji", "Open Space", and "Hello Thursday".

Patrick Williams wrote and arranged the whole set – and he merges his jazzier roots with some of his sublime 70s soundtrack skills – in a mix that's still lean enough to keep the album right up there with Laws' best from the time, but also give things a bit more of a funky punch, too.

Madlib Invazion, 2010. New Copy ... $6.99 15.98
Raw crackling hip hop funk beatcraft at its deepest from mighty Madlib – working in his Beat Konducta style for this third entry in the epic Madlib's Medicine Show Series! Beat Konducta In Africa is a hazy hip hop instrumental set from 'Lib (lest you thought it might be a funky compilation of rare African material) with some additional mixing from J Rocc – based on rare African vinyl. The sound is pure Madlib/Beat Konducta heady hip hop funk – recognizable as being spun from and inspired by African material, and impeccably so, with that instantly identifiable, exploratory Madlib sonic stamp. He looks far beyond Afrobeat and funk sources, with some raw funk rock beats, psych, garage and more with some trippy vocal samples – and he's building up from blueprints records originally pressed all over Africa – Zambia, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Ghana, Botswana and Ivory Coast. But too much mention of the source material risks making this sound like a compilation or a mix set, when it's Madlib all the way! Titles include "Motherland", "Raw Introduction To Afreaka", "Warrior's Theme", "Street Hustler", "Afritonic" (Pts 1 & 2), "Tradition", "Blackfire", "Obtaive", "Mtima", "African Bounce", "Freedom Play", "Natural Sound Waves", "Unika (Outro)" and many more. 43 tracks on the CD version, which includes 6 bonus tracks.

Atlantic/Culture Factory, 1964. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.98
Early bossa jazz from Sergio Mendes – recorded with his famous Bossa Rio combo, in the years before he moved to America! The album's a classic in Brazilian jazz – a tight album of bossa-inflected jazz tunes played with razor-sharp precision, handled with a style that went on to influence countless other Brazilian groups at the time. Mendes is in the lead on piano, and other players include Edison Machado on drums, Raul De Souza on trombone, and Hector Costita on tenor sax. The whole thing's great – a masterpiece of both jazz and bossa – and it's filled with classic tunes arranged by Jobim, Moacir Santos, and Sergio himself. Titles include "Nana", "Primitivo", "Desafinado", "Ela E Carioca", "Amor Em Paz", "Noa Noa", and "Neurotico". LP, Vinyl record album

A killer from Willie Mitchell – harder, funkier, and a lot more soulful than most of his other records from the 60s! The groove here is sock-soul, and most cuts have a hard and tight funky 45 approach. Willie was really cut loose on this one – freed from his usual standard of recording hits and pop songs, he wrote all the songs on the set – and they're heavy Memphis instrumentals with a sound that's much more like 60s Bar Kays work on Stax! There's a great sax player on the session, too – not named in the notes, unfortunately, but with a sound that really wails on the best tracks. Titles include "Fat Cat", "Pep Talk", "That Driving Beat", "The Champion (parts 1 & 2)", "Nick O Demus", "Everything Is Gonna Be Alright", and "Stone Face". LP, Vinyl record album

Roulette, 1986. Near Mint- ... $9.99
It's the mid 80s and Mickey Hart's behind the production on this album, so you know it has a slick, glossy touch all over it, with a very "world music" approach. But the beauty of Olatunji's playing and subtle complexity of the rhythms trump the flashy approach. The lineup is huge, with guest spots by Santana and Airto. 5 numbers in all, including "The Beat Of My Drum", "Loyin Loyin", "Ife L'Oju L'Aiye", "Akiwowo" and "Se Eni A Fe L'Amo – Kere Kere".

Young-Holt UnlimitedBeat Goes On ... LP
Brunswick/Demon (UK), Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
The beat goes on, and just keeps getting better and better too – thanks to the growing sophistication of the Young/Holt duo, once they broke away from Ramsey Lewis! The bass and drums share equal space in the spotlight – and the production has the former really up high in the mix, which makes for a non-stop sort of energy that begins with the group's jazzy roots, but often takes off tighter flights into instrumental funk! And unlike the group's initial trio outing for Brunswick, this album has some great larger arrangements from Sonny Sanders – who brings in lots of excellent funky touches. Titles include a number of strong original instrumentals like "Yon Gimme Thum", "Dig Her Walk", "Baby Your Light Is Out", "Yum Yum", and "Doin' The Thing" – plus covers like "Listen Here", "Good Vibrations", and "The Beat Goes On".

VariousAlgo Salvaje – Untamed 60s Beat & Garage Nuggets From Spain Vol 2 ... CD
Munster (Spain), Mid 60s. Used ... $18.99
60s Spain must have been a hell of a place to be a rocker – as the country was a hotbed of underground activity – with countless groups cutting loads of great singles, often with a raw sound that matched the best of the American and British scenes of the time! This excellent second volume in the Algo Salvaje series digs even deeper into this magical moment in Spanish sounds – and comes up with some killer singles that you'd never hear otherwise – laid out in a beautiful package that's brimming over with notes on the bands, lots of photos, and even some label scans that help create a vintage feel for the whole set. There's a massive 28 tracks in all – and titles include "Cadillac" by Los Gatos Negros, "Te Esperaba" by Los Pops, "Sin Rencor" by Cefe Y Los Gigantes, "Soy Asi" by Los Salvajes, "Well You Know" by Smash, "Veo Visiones" by Los Gritos, "Lack A Day" by Cirros, "Nothing" by Juan & Junior, "Amor Perdido" by Ramon 5, and "Si Manana Sera Asi" by The Brisks.

Two ultra-cool 10" records – both the size of a vintage 78, but each containing a dozen totally hip tracks from the late 50s and early 60s! The music here follows strongly in the great tradition of this excellent series – and like the rest, digs deep in the hinterland of the vintage vinyl single – to uncover some rare gems that run the gamut from early soul, to rock instrumentals, R&B, and lots of other recorded oddities! As you might guess from the Cramps-like title, there's a pretty upbeat, festive feel to the record – as raw sounds collide and provide a mighty great listen all the way through – from titles that include "Call My Name" by The Saints, "Begging" by Bo Toliver & His Timers, "Summertime" by Jamie Coe, "Midnight Express" by The Dawnbeats, "Tarantula" by The Storms, "Charge" by The Renegades, "Fling" by The Phaetons, "Stop The Clock Rock" by The Creel Sisters, "Shake Baby Shake" by Celestine, "I'm Scared Of The Horrors Of The Black Museum" by Nightmares Jimmie Maddin Orchestra, "Here Lies My Love" by Mr Undertaker, and "The Whipmaster" by Don Johnston.

A really cool set that looks at the rise of late 50s beatnik culture from a variety of different styles – not just the jazz and poetry that marked that scene's biggest contribution to music – but also the wealth of modes that inspired those years too! The 3CD package features a stunning 57 titles in all – and begins in the late 30s with hard-edged small combo work and jive-heavy vocal tracks – then runs past WWII to include some bebop, R&B, and very cool vocal numbers – before moving into Greenwich Village classic sounds in a mix of spoken word, jazz poetry, and even a bit of folk! The booklet is filled with notes and history in both English and French – and titles include "The Beat Generation" by Bob McFadden, "High School Drag" by Phillipa Fallon, "The Nazz" by Lord Buckley, "American Haikus" by Jack Kerouac & Al Cohn, "Route 66" by Bobby Troup, "Gator Tail (part 2)" by Cootie Williams, "Rock & Roll" by Wild Bill Moore, "Killin Jive" by Cats & The Fiddle, "You'se A Viper" by Stuff Smith, "Scrapple From The Apple" by Les Double Six, "Kookie's Mad Pad" by Ed Byrnes, "So What" by Eddie Jefferson, "Howl" by Allen Ginsberg, "I Sing Of Olaf" by Roger Steffans, "Say Man" by Bo Diddley, "Shulie A Bop" by Sarah Vaughan, and "The Rocket Ship Show" by Jocko Henderson.

Brazilian grooves all over the place – and a wonderful assortment of tunes from the Warner, Atlantic, and Elektra vaults of the 60s and 70s! The set list goes way past the pop-bossa numbers that you might think from the cover, which is a cop from an old Atlantic compilation of the 60s – and includes some lesser-known tracks cooked up in Brazil during the 70s, as well as some of their American counterparts.

VariousBeat Scene (2020 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Decca (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 2LP ... $34.99
An excellent collection of work from one of our favorite strands of the British scene of the 60s – the all-important beat scene – the mod-styled groups that started to emerge from England at the time, influenced by American soul and R&B, but working in a style that was clearly all their own! There certainly were echoes of the beat sound in the music of The Beatles and other Brit invasion combos – but on the fringes of the scene, the styles were much farther-reaching, and eventually set the stage for progressive and jazz rock modes at the end of the 60s. The key years of the beat scene are nicely documented here by a variety of different groups that go way beyond familiar hits. Titles include "Now I Know" by The Beat Chicks, "I'm Gonna Knock On Your Door" by The Pete Best Four, "Once In A While" by The Brooks, "Who'll Be The Next In Line" by The Knack, "Heart Of Stone" by The Hi Numbers, "Did You Want To Run Away" by Tierney's Fugitives, "I Was Only Playing Games" by Unit 4 & 2, "Lost My Girl" by Rick & Sandy, "That's What I Want" by The Mauraders, "Keep On Dancing" by Brian Poole & The Tremeloes, and "Hurt Me If You Will" by The Mark Four.

If all airports sounded this great, we'd travel all the time! Copenhagen Airport is the 3rd in Rambling's exploration of the best grooves from the current Scandinavian scene – a host of tracks from Deeplay Records of the past few years, served up in a lively mix of soulful house and more abstract numbers! The grooves here are mostly upbeat, but have plenty of warm jazzy touches – that more organic approach to the groove that's made the Scandinavian scene one watch in recent years, and which often has some nice jazz-influenced moments.

An excellent modern take on the Afro Funk genre of the 70s – one that's filled with work by current groups who really get the classic sound right! As in the older work of Fela, there's plenty of percussion, keyboards, and horns in the mix here – often played straight and live, as on the older records, and with a solidly soulful sound that would be bound to make the great one proud! A few tracks go for a slightly more modern production approach, but always still keep the overall feel of the tune just right – and the set's one that you'll proudly put next to your older Afro Funk records, as proof that the sound lives on today, when placed in the right hands. Titles include "Mama Don't Want No Gun (Beatfanatic rmx)" by Kokolo, "NESTA 75" by Antibalas, "Diggin" by Ras, "Elephant" by Karl Denson's Tiny Universe, "Lagos Sound System" by Les Barons, "Un Tour Du Monde (inst mix)" by Love & Salt, "Cheney Lane" by Nostalgia 77, "The Name Of Fela Will Always Stand For Freedom" by The Jetsons with Jessica Lauren, "Take Time To Change Your Mind (Faze Action rmx)" by Quantic Soul Orchestra, and "See Line Woman" by Femm Nameless.

Totally groovy sounds from the Swedish scene of the 60s – a flurry of female pop tunes that we love every bit as our favorite French femme work from the time! Like French pop, the tunes here are lively and upbeat – often with a slight current of funk or soul in the rhythms, and with instrumentation that mixes fuller orchestrations with groovier elements at the core – creating a juxtaposition of large sound and personal presence that makes the music plenty darn great throughout! There have been lots of other European scenes tapped like this over the years – but this may well be the first Swedish collection we've ever heard – and, thanks to the folks at Ace Records, it gets beautiful presentation with top-shelf sound, and detailed notes on the music. Titles include "The Girls Want The Boys" by Eleanor Bodel, "Karlek Finns Det Overallt" by Mak Les Souers, "Last Train To Liverpool" by Plommons, "Good Kind Of Hurt" by Lena Junoff, "Don't" by Doris, "Benny Law" by Plums, "Lite For Liten" by Lill Babs, "Vadret" by Mona Wessman, and "You Really Have Started Something" by Britt Bergstrom. 24 tracks in all!

This one is even better than the first – and seems to dig even deeper in the crates to come up with a range of rare singles from around the globe – all dripping with heavy drums, fuzzy guitars, and sweet sweet Hammond organ work! Many numbers have vocals, and most are from the rockish side of the spectrum – but they've all got a romping, grooving bottom end that more than makes them a little bit funky – usually in a groove that's way different than the sort you'd find on other funky compilations!

There's few folks we'd trust to take us into the mod underground of the 60s more than Rob Bailey – and this series of his always delivers the goods, and reminds us that we've got a heck of a lot more to learn about music like this! Tracks come from rare singles and unreleased acetates – and there's a very groovy, very gritty vibe throughout – often garagey, sometimes funky, and filled with fuzzy guitar, freaky vocals, and some mighty nice drums! Rob Bailey's always had an ear for the sorts of cuts that can deliver a groove – the series grew out of a famous club night in the UK – and there's plenty of that here, on titles that include "Funny Day" by The Mongrels, "Where Is Love" by Les Serpents Noir, "Soul Lovin Baby" by Skip Wulff, "Blow N My Mind" by Armando, "House For Sale" by Val McKenna, "Love Me While You Can" by Smokey Circles, "Baby Get Your Head Screwed On" by The Legends, "You Told A Lie" by Freddie & His Reflections, "Leaves Of Grass" by Soul Inc, "Today's The Day" by The Outcasts, and the cuts "Blow Up" and "Funny Day" – both by unknown artists!

Big Beat (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Mad sounds from the late 60s world of Japanese pop – a mindblowing, ear-opening batch of singles we never would have gotten our hands on otherwise! The music here feels like sounds coming out of some backroom jukebox in a Nikkatsu "new action" film – or maybe the kind of offbeat pop that Quentin Tarantino might throw into a soundtrack – but there's also a much deeper range of sounds going on than you might expect, with wonderfully clever instrumentation, and lots of surprisingly heartfelt passages in the vocals! And sure, the language might be a barrier – but there's a really universal sense of appeal to this music – a variant of 60s soul and pop, focused through a different sort of lense – and the instrumentation alone is great – with wicked guitars, Hammond, and other garagey touches! As usual with Ace, the whole thing's supported with nicely detailed notes that tell the whole story behind these wonderful lost gems (we like this one even better than the fab first volume) – and titles include "Namida No Go Go" by Emy Jackson & Blue Comets, "Koi Gurui" by Chiyo Okumura, "Tokyo No Hito" by The Peanuts, "Warui Kuse" by Kazumi Yasui, "Boy & Girl" by Akiko Wada, "Namida No Mori No Monogatari" by Akiko Nakamura, "Saike Na Machi" by Reiko Mari, "Bazazz No 1" by Kayoko Ishuu, and "Furi Furi 5" by Linda Yamamoto.

You might know "Soul Makossa" – the worldwide hit by Manu Dibango that was covered by many folks, and sampled heavily in later years too – but this set takes a look at the deeper scene behind that famous groove, through a host of wickedly funky tracks from the late 70s scene in Cameroon! The tracks here are all upbeat, and not afraid to pick up a few influences from disco when they want – but they've also got a more loose, open sort of vibe – a wonderful flow that seems to set the scene for just about anything to happen over the course of the longer songs! Instrumentation and vocals are equally important here – especially the basslines and guitars – and the style of the work starts out in Dibango territory, but soon moves past into a range of very cool modes. As usual with Analogue Africa, the whole thing's way more than just a batch of songs, too – as the notes are huge, and really get at the special feeling of the scene – a world that we've never seen opened up this well. Titles include "More Love" by Pat Ndoye, "Mininga Meyong Mese" by Nkodo Si-Tony, "Ye Medjuie" by Emmanuel Kahe & Jeanette Kemonge, "Pop Makossa Invasion" by Dream Stars, "Nen Lambo" by Bill Loko, "Yaounde Girls" by Mystic Djim & The Spirits, "Nogon Engap" by Olinga Gaston, "Mussoloki" by Bernard Ntone, and "M'Ongele M'Am" by Eko.

ABC, 1959. Very Good- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the grooviest early albums recorded by Candido – done way before his later funky sides, and served up with plenty of unusual touches that set it apart from the usual 50s Latin set! Candi's very much in front of the arrangements on congas – hitting hard with a percussive fury that certainly marks his space – but he's also getting wonderful support from Manny Albam on arrangements, who brings in some searing solo work from players like Nick Travis, Phil Woods, and Ernie Royal – all of whom color the sound with some strong lines on their horns. And added to this too are some sparely-used vocal bits – scatting chorus passages that are never hokey, and expand out the tunes with a finger-snapping sound that's way better than you might expect! The record's one of the most subtle "with voices" efforts we've ever heard – and we love Albam's economical use of this element alongside the stronger jazz soloists. Titles are mostly traditional numbers, but they're transformed tremendously with this sound – as you'll hear on the album's versions of "Royal Garden Blues", "King Porter Stomp", "Ja Da", "Swinging The Blues", "Sweet Sue", and "Exactly Like You".

A legendary run of music from the late, great Sam Cooke – almost all of his recordings for RCA Records, packaged here in one sweet little package! The scope of the set is wonderful – and almost something of a revelation, given that a number of these titles have never appeared on CD in the US before – making this collection a real discovery in soul music! Cooke first came out of the underground in the late 50s – and by the time he hit RCA, was really ready to take on new challenges – recording some key tracks that would help redefine the sound of soul for the 60s – and also working on some special album projects that expanded the range of work that he was handling – showing off some great sides of his talents. The set features the killer live album One Night Stand – recorded at the Harlem Square Club – plus the studio albums Cooke's Tour, Hits Of The 50s, Swing Low, My Kind Of Blues, Twistin The Night Away, Mr Soul, and Night Beat – all packaged in these cool little LP-styled sleeves!

Goldmine (UK), Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Hammering stuff! This is one of the hardest of the Goldmine compilations – with a heavy-duty garagey mix of soul, R&B, and beat-heavy tunes that fit perfectly together. The overall sound is super-mod, with the kind of grooves you'd expect to find at some wonderful underground party in London during the late 60s – where original soulboys are dancing all night long to a color-blind mix of storming chunes. Titles include "The Snake" by Al Wilson, "Jump & Dance" by Carnaby, "If It's All The Same To You Babe" by Luther Ingram, "Alligator Boogaloo" by Sandy Nelson, "These Boots Were Made For Walkin" by The Happy Cats, "Charley" by The Soul Runners, "Coffee Pot 2" by Bo Junior, "Elijah Rockin With Soul" by Hank Jacobs, "Crawling Up A Hill" by John Mayall, "Wobble Legs" by Tommy Dark, "Chain Gang" by The Powerhouse, and "Baby You Got It" by The Truth. 23 cuts in all – and all hardcore!

Groovy, moddish, magnificent and sunny girl pop from The Land Of The Rising Sun – pummeling drums, jumping arrangements and groovy vocals from the mid-to-late 60s Japanese scene! This is fantastic stuff, any kitch or novelty appeal you might be expecting is kind of muted by the exceptional quality and excellent performances – but it is flat out fun!

✨✧ VariousSitar Beat Vol 1 – Indian Style Heavy Funk ... CD
Guerilla Reissues, 1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
India gets funky – in this great set of rare tunes from the 70s – a motherlode of cuts that make the most out of Indian music! Half the cuts are of European origin, the other half from India – and they've got a great blend of beats, sitar, and other eastern touches. And unlike previous vinyl volumes in this series, which were mostly short EPs, there's a huge amount of tracks on here – a total of 21 numbers that also includes a fair bit of edits that strip out the funkiest parts from longer original tracks! Titles include "Sitar Beat" by Klaus Doldinger, "Dharmatma Theme Music (Tommy's edit)" by Kalyanji Anajdi, "Meri Aakhon Mein (edit)" by Sapan Jagmohan, "New Delire" by Serge Gainsbourg, "Rocky (bonus beats)" by RD Burman, "Orchestral Music (edit)" by Raghunath Seth, "Bairaag Dance Music (edit)" by Kalyanji Anandji, "Hotel Incidental Music (edit)" by Usha Khanna, "Qurbani (bonus beats)" by Biddu, "Sa Re Ga (edit)" by Ananda Shankar, "Pyschastenie (Miles drum edit)" by Serge Gainsbourg, and "Dum Maro Dum Live (edit)" by Asha Boshle.

✨✧ VariousSitar Beat Vol 2 – Indian Style Heavy Funk ... CD
Guerilla Reissues, 1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A motherlode of Indian-styled funk – grooves that are heavy on the sitar, but which also feature a fair bit of American funk influences as well! The tracks are all pretty darn obscure, and most are actually from India – not copycat tracks from Europe and the US – and alongside the sitars, instrumentation also includes some great trumpet, moog, and keyboard bits too – sliding along the rhythms with a darkly groovy edge! Most numbers are from soundtracks – and have a definite soundtrack sort of feel – and although there's some vocals on the album, the main focus is clearly on the great instrumentation and super-heavy rhythms. Titles include "The Witness" by Babla & His Orchestra, "Everybody Dance With Me" by SD Narang, "Wade Karle Sanja" by Kalyanji Anandji, "Freak Out Music" by RD Burman, "Nigahon Ka Adaon Ka" by Kalyanji Anandji, "Tera Jasia Pyara Koi Nahin" by Usha Khanna, "Phir Teri Yaad" by Hemant Bhosle, "Butterfly (version two)" by Keith Kanga, "Dard E Dil" by Laxmikant Pyarelal, "Aaj Mera Dil" by RD Burman, and "Main Akeli Raat Jawan" by Ajit Singh.

Black & Blue/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1970/1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Great work from this Chicago group – material recorded in France, but which wails with the best sound of the small blues clubs on the south side at the time! The core group features Louis Myers on guitar and harmonica, Dave Myers on bass, and Fred Below on drums – joined by Eddie Taylor, Mickey Baker, and Jimmy Rogers on guitar at points – plus a bit of piano from the great Willie Mabon! The whole thing's excellent – very true to form, and more Delmark than some of the slicker blues recordings that were starting to show up at the time – on titles that include "Ace's Shuffle", "Tell Me Mama", "Take A Little Walk With Me", "Whole Lot Of Lovin", "Blues For Marcelle", and "Money Marbles & Chalk". CD features lots of bonus tracks – 6 more tracks added to the original album! CD

Everest, 1958. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
A great little meeting of Latin and jazz players – an oft-overlooked album in Puente's catalog of the time! The album features Woody leading a small group of jazz players – including Al Cohn, Paul Quinichette, Billy Byers, and Nick Travis – with extra timbales by Puente and congas by Ray Barretto – and the overall approach is light but tight, with more of a straight jazz component than you'd find on most of Tito's records from the time, but also a wonderfully driven groove that still keeps the rhythms mostly on the Latin end of things! Titles include "Cha Cha Chick", "Tito Meets Woody", "Pillar To Post", "Midnight Sun", "Blue Station", "Mambo Herd", and "Balu". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Alan MoorhouseKPM 1000 – Big Beat Vol 2 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
KPM/Tummy Touch (UK), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The big beat here is plenty darn funky – but in some really weird and wonderful ways too – thanks to the genius talents of the mighty Alan Moorehouse, the legendary British maestro featured on this rare sound library album for KPM! Moorehouse is even more compelling than some of his funky contemporaries on the sound library scene – because he's not only got a great way of cooking up a short, simple, soulful groove – but he also puts the instruments together in really unusual ways, often to create sounds that veer past their simple origins, to make the grooves sound even greater! This album's a sound library masterpiece all the way through – the kind of set that makes you realize why this under-exposed genre of music is regarded so highly by modern beatheads – thanks to Moorehouse's use of organ, keyboards, funky drums, and a fair bit of acoustic guitar – quite unusual for a KPM set, but all the more compelling. Titles inlcude "Boss Man", "Soul Skimmer", "Pop Pastime", "That's Nice", "West Coastin", "Angelic Gas", "Expo In Tokyo", "Rock It Again", "Rockin Boogie", and "Pop Mandolin". LP, Vinyl record album

Soundway (UK), 1970s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Excellent stuff – and a much-needed look at the funky 70s scene in Ghana! Much of the Afro Funk that's been revived over the past few years has come from the Nigerian scene – so it's great to hear this set of funky tunes from Ghana, a rich selection of grooves with a slightly harder edge than some other African work we've heard, and a rhythmic pulse that leans heavily towards work of American funk acts of the time. Drums, bass, and other percussion abound – and the tunes have a sweetly bubbling funky feel that's nice and soulful! Very well done – with a total of 14 tracks, and a very thorough set of notes – and including the cuts "Because Of Money" by The Third Generation, "Mother Africa" by Marijata, "Heaven" by Ebo Taylor, "Simigwado" by Gyedu Blay Ambolley, "Psychedelic Woman" by Honey & The Bees Band, "Make It Fast Make It Slow" by Rob, "Nite Safarie" by The Black Star Sound, and "Bukom Mashie" by Oscar Sulley.

Circle (UK), 1960s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Mod mania all the way through and through – a sublime third set from the New Untouchables scene – every bit as wonderful as the first two! Like those great collections, this one's built up from rare mod singles of the 60s – obscure gritty grooves awash in fuzzy guitars, burning Hammond, and heavy drums – often in a space that's uniquely somewhere between rock, funk, and soul! A few of the names here are familiar, but as on previous volumes, most of the artists are completely new to our ears – which makes the "discovery" factor of the set every bit as great as the music. Most tunes are upbeat and romping – sure to please fans of funkier rock work – and titles include "Snakeskin" by Julie Felix, "Looking For Something Better" by Rodys, "Mirrors" by Fire & Ice, "Abba" by The Paragons, "Si Je Buvais Moins" by Douglas, "Midnight Moses" by Alex Harvey, "Strange Magic" by Claude Bolling, "Music Ship" by Bastile, "Hold Up Inusite" by Joanna, "A Minor Explosion" by Don Shinn & The Soul Agents, and "Flashback" by The Noon Express.

Compiler Rob Bailey out does himself here, once again digging deep for obscure mod singles, groovy slabs of garage rock, with a few left turns such as a heavy Latin gem and a more psych-steeped number or two – propulsive, exciting numbers regardless of genre affections and fiery dancefloor ready rock tunes all the way! 20 tailor made cuts on the CD – a brief notes on each tune, all of which are exciting and groovy as can be! Titles include "Voodoo Medicine Man" by Jerry & Jeff, "False Alarm Love" by Peaceful Coalition, "Eg Veit Ao Pu Kemar" by Trubrat, "Feelin" by Joy Unlimited, "No Thank You Mr Pusher" by Big Tom, "King Of Siam" by East Of Eden", "Comin On Down" by The Twilights and more.

Detour (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
There's few folks we'd trust to take us into the mod underground of the 60s more than Rob Bailey – and this series of his always delivers the goods, and reminds us that we've got a heck of a lot more to learn about music like this! Tracks come from rare singles and unreleased acetates – and there's a very groovy, very gritty vibe throughout – often garagey, sometimes funky, and filled with fuzzy guitar, freaky vocals, and some mighty nice drums! Rob Bailey's always had an ear for the sorts of cuts that can deliver a groove – the series grew out of a famous club night in the UK – and there's plenty of that here, on titles that include "Funny Day" by The Mongrels, "Where Is Love" by Les Serpents Noir, "Soul Lovin Baby" by Skip Wulff, "Blow N My Mind" by Armando, "House For Sale" by Val McKenna, "Love Me While You Can" by Smokey Circles, "Baby Get Your Head Screwed On" by The Legends, "You Told A Lie" by Freddie & His Reflections, "Leaves Of Grass" by Soul Inc, "Today's The Day" by The Outcasts, and the cuts "Blow Up" and "Funny Day" – both by unknown artists!

Analog Africa (Germany), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
You might know "Soul Makossa" – the worldwide hit by Manu Dibango that was covered by many folks, and sampled heavily in later years too – but this set takes a look at the deeper scene behind that famous groove, through a host of wickedly funky tracks from the late 70s scene in Cameroon! The tracks here are all upbeat, and not afraid to pick up a few influences from disco when they want – but they've also got a more loose, open sort of vibe – a wonderful flow that seems to set the scene for just about anything to happen over the course of the longer songs! Instrumentation and vocals are equally important here – especially the basslines and guitars – and the style of the work starts out in Dibango territory, but soon moves past into a range of very cool modes. As usual with Analogue Africa, the whole thing's way more than just a batch of songs, too – as the notes are huge, and really get at the special feeling of the scene – a world that we've never seen opened up this well. Titles include "More Love" by Pat Ndoye, "Mininga Meyong Mese" by Nkodo Si-Tony, "Ye Medjuie" by Emmanuel Kahe & Jeanette Kemonge, "Pop Makossa Invasion" by Dream Stars, "Nen Lambo" by Bill Loko, "Yaounde Girls" by Mystic Djim & The Spirits, "Nogon Engap" by Olinga Gaston, "Mussoloki" by Bernard Ntone, and "M'Ongele M'Am" by Eko.

Omicron/Schema (Italy), 1968. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
We're not entirely sure what "fischiando" means, but we can definitely testify that the album lives up to the "beat" in its title – those kind of groovy, mod tunes we love so much in Italian 60s soundtracks from the great Piero Umiliani! This set's even more obscure than most of those records, though – done for the tiny Omicron sound library, as part of Piero's Sound Workshop series – with a nice mix of jazzy instrumentation on horns, plus a sweet range of keyboards that include Fender Rhodes, Hammond, and even a bit of spinet! Some tunes have bossa rhythms, others are more 60s mod – and the record also features a few sweet bits of whistling and acoustic guitar as well – although the main focus seems to come from the horns and keyboards. Titles include "Yes OK", "Autostop Per Rio", "Fischiando In Beat", "Tokio Blues", "Go Go Go", "Sono Un NJostalgico", and "Samba Mah Na", a great remake of one of Umiliani's famous themes! CD

✨✧ VariousCumbia Beat Vol 3 – 21 Peruvian Tropical Gems ... LP
Vampi Soul (Spain), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
A smoking third volume in this mighty look at the Peruvian cumbia scene of the 70s – music that often shares the same blend of guitar, percussion, and keyboards that makes some of the chica grooves from that time so great! The music here maybe owes a bit more to Latin sounds from up north, but the overall execution is very strongly in the modes put forth by Peruvian labels and producers at the time – often with great use of echo, especially in the guitar lines and keyboards – which make things sound very different than anything coming from Colombia or New York at the time! Yet there's also plenty of salsa elements at play here, too – the kind of percussive interplay that might be driving a Cuban or Puerto Rican combo – but nicely different in this setting too. Titles include "Chola Ingrata" by Los Ecos, "Manzana Verde" by Los Tantos, "El Saltamontes" by Silvestre Montez Y Sus Guantanameros, "La Manzanita" by Los Gitanos, "Descarga Oriental" by Los Orientales De Paramonga, "Larga Espera" by Los Sanders De Nana, "Lamento Moyobambino" by Sonido Verde De Moyobamba, and "La Narajadita" by Grupo Siglo XX.

✨✧ Claude Bolling SextetTwo Beat Mozart ... LP
Philips, 1965. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
During the 60s, the French loved to jazz up the classics – as can be heard often in the famous work of artists like Jacques Loussier or The Swingle Singers, not to mention Bolling himself, who made quite a career out of the form. Normally, we totally groove on these experiments – because they usually mix a boppish approach with the classics, creating some baroque yet jazzy lines that always sound groovy in a 60s kind of way. Unfortunately, Bolling goes more for a trad jazz approach – which sounds a bit cornier than we'd like, although still certainly better than on his later "classical meets jazz" albums for Columbia. Titles include "Mon Coeur Soupire", "Minuetto", "Allegro", and "Andante & Variations". LP, Vinyl record album
