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".

✨✧ Balkan Beat BoxBalkan Beat Box ... CD
Jdub, 2005. Used ... Out Of Stock
A mad mix of styles pulled from Balkan, Mediterranean, Jewish, and American cultures – served up in a mode that more than delivers on the enigmatic promise of its title! There's a feel here that almost takes us back to the playful creativity of the New York scene of the early 80s – the criss-crossing of sounds that were showing up often in some of the most forward-thinking indies, and which reflected the rich mix of cultures bubbling together in the post-punk years. As you might guess from the "beat box" in the title, there's a bit of a hip hop influence here – but one that's pretty small, and mostly just used on the bottomest part of the rhythms – leaving the core components of the tunes to a range of exotic instrumentation and some occasional haunting vocals. Title sinclude "Cha Cha", "Bulgarian Chicks", "Sunday Arak", "Gross", "9/4 The Ladies", "Adir Adiram", "Meboli", and "Hassan's Mimuna". CD

✨✧ Mestizo BeatCanoga Madness ... LP
California Soul Music, 2020. New Copy ... 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".

Beatfanatic & OthersBeatfanatic Presents Beat Traveler – Scandinavian Soundscapes ... CD
Rambling (Japan), 2007. Used ... $14.99
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.

Blue Note, 1960. Used ... Just Sold Out!
One of the greatest Art Blakey Blue Note sessions of all time – and perhaps one of the greatest to realize the genius of the Jazz Messengers lineup that included Lee Morgan on trumpet, Wayne Shorter on tenor, and Bobby Timmons on piano! The trio of young talents are at the height of their early soulful powers here – working with Blakey and bassist Jymie Merritt in a set of tunes that are overflowing with expressive solos, unusual timings, and the Blakey genius for mixing bold statements with personally introspective moments. Nearly every track on the record's a classic – and titles include an early version of Bobby Timmons' "Dat Dere", plus Wayne Shorter's beautiful tunes "Lester Left Town", "Chess Players", and "Sakeena's Vision".

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

✨✧ Sandro Brugnolini/CarniniBeat Drammatico, Underground, Pop Elettronic ... CD
Fonit/Schema (Italy), 1973. Used Gatefold ... $9.99
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".

Trojan (UK), 1970s. Used ... $29.99
Like so many vocalists, Junior Byles shone brightest under the guidance of Lee Perry, and this excellent retrospective collects more than just a few of the great Jamaican soul sides he'd cut under his production. All of these numbers have the spare loping groove, with nice organ lines and bouncing bass that were the hallmark of Scratch's early 70's work, laced with Byles' great roots vocals over top. 23 tracks in all, including "I've Got A Feeling", "Don't Know Why", "Coming Home", "Beat Down Babylon", "A Place Called Africa", "Poor Chubby", "Hail To Power", "Fever", "When Will Better Come", "Curly Locks" and "Dreader Locks".

Chris ConnellyHeart Has To Ache Before It Learns To Beat – The Lyrics & Poems Of Chris Connely ... Book
Shipwrecked, 2020. New Copy ... $9.99 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. Used 8CD ... $39.99
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!

RCA/Legacy, 1963. New Copy ... $4.99 6.99
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

A totally wonderful little record – not just a funky 70s soundtrack, but an excellent jazz outing as well – thanks to the talents of Hubert Laws on flute and Earl Klugh on guitar! 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. There's lots of great moments in a CTI/Kudu mode – and titles include "Down River", "Piccolo Boogie", "The Edge", "The Caper", "The Scuffle", and "Ready To Run". CD

Broadway is the beat, but the sound has plenty of Parisian touches, too – thanks to arrangements from the mighty Michel Legrand! Legrand's in a mode here that's somewhere between his earliest soundtracks, and the European-themed records he cut for Columbia in the late 50s – styles that are a bit more warm and sentimental than in later years, with evocative elements designed to coax the Broadway-based listener out on a voyage across the Atlantic! Strings are relatively full, and sometimes used with great dynamic energy – and titles include "Bewitched", "There's A Boat Dat's Leavin Soon For New York", "Old Devil Moon", "With A Little Bit Of Luck", "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes", and "Yesterdays".

Madlib Invazion, 2010. New Copy ... $4.99 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.

One of the grooviest sound library records ever made – a whopping batch of funky Hammond heavies from British legends Keith Mansfield and Alan Hawkshaw! The rare set was recorded right at the tail end of the 60s – and it's got a mod sort of style that mixes funky rhythms with some incredibly groovy work on organ – all in service of tight, short tunes originally recorded for use in radio and TV, but which is easily some of the best instrumental work coming out of the UK at the time! Both players are at the top of their game here – Hawkshaw, with plenty of those whomping grooves we love so much in his work with The Mohaws – and Mansfield, with a clean lean line on the keys that's equally great. Titles include "Exclusive Blend", "Teenage Travelogue", "Teenage Ton Up", "The Mexican DJ", and "Red Square Stomp" by Keith Mansfield – and "Studio 69", "Work Out", "Beat Me Til I'm Blue", "Senior Thump", "Tap Footer", "Delivery Date", "Man On The Move", and "Debsville" by Alan Hawkshaw.

KPM/Tummy Touch (UK), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $15.99 19.99
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

Sam "The Man" Taylor at his best – blowing hard-edged tenor on a bunch of hip 50s instrumentals!

Titles include "Look Out", "The Big Beat", "Oo, Wee", "Ride, Sammy, Ride", "Sam's Blues", "Let's Ball", "Fish Roll", and "The Boss Is Home". 7-inch, Vinyl record

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".

Munster (Spain), Mid 60s. Used ... $14.99
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.

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.

A superior second volume of tropical cumbia from Vampi Soul – and a more expansive set than the first one, too! The vast majority the the great stuff here comes from the psych and immediate post-psych years– and it has the tripped-out sounds to show for it – but those are anchored nicely, by feverish percussion and tight tropical rhythms. Beyond that are some some great wah wah guitar, trippy organs, Moog and synth grooves – for a really great sound! This volume is also pretty heavy with instrumentals, but there's some standout vocal tunes, too – with numbers by Los Destellos, Compay Quinto, Los Yungas, Grupo Celeste, Juaneco Y Su Combo, Los Demonios Del Mantaro, Los Ecos, Los Beta 5, Los Orientales De Paramonga and many more.

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!

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!

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.

Workshop Jazz, 1964. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
An amazing record – one of the best on Motown's short-lived Workshop Jazz subsidiary! The album is the first to feature Roy Brooks as a leader – and the super-hip drummer from Detroit really knows what to do with the opportunity! He's working here with a hip group that includes members of the Horace Silver quintet – including Blue Mitchell, Junior Cook, and Gene Taylor – as well as Detroit contemporaries George Bohannon on trombone and Hugh Lawson on piano. The overall style of the record is quite different from Brooks' work with Silver – and has a much more open-ended feeling emotionally. The tracks are a mix of soul jazz numbers and others with a rougher-hewn sense of modernism – almost like the excellent work coming out of Chicago during the early 60s, from artists like Gene Shaw or the MJT+3. All the players are at their best, and the album features some of the nicest tenor work we've ever heard from Cook.

✨✧ Marc 4Psych Jazzy Beat Of I Marc 4 ... CD
Black Cat (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The Marc 4 were one of the all-time great studio combos of the Italian scene of the early 70s – and they cut an amazing amount of fantastic music that was used in obscure Italian films and TV shows at the time. This set's one of the best we've ever seen to collect their work – and it brings together 24 stunning tracks that very ably show the band's talent to mix together funk, jazz, and various groove and psyche influences that were running through the early 70s vogue for hip soundtrack work. Plenty of great guitar and organ riffing, and 100% groovy all the way through! Titles include "Rita", "Catherine", "Max", "Berkey 70", "Inchiesta Sulla Mafia", "Distortion Mind", "Luna", "Key Board", "Happy Beat", "The Sound", "Boxes", and "Beat Generation". Very nice! CD

✨✧ Sergio MendesBeat Of Brazil (aka Voce Ainda Nao Ouviu Nada) (blue & yellow vinyl pressing) ... LP
Atlantic/Culture Factory, 1964. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Willie MitchellWillie Mitchell's Driving Beat ... LP
Hi Records/Fat Possum, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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

Fremeaux & Associates (France), Late 30s/1940s/1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 3 CDs ... Out Of Stock
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. Titles include "Celebration Suite" by Airto, "Jive Samba" by Jon Hendricks, "Eu Bebo Sim" by Osmar Milito, "Mr Funky Samba" by Banda Black Rio, "From The Lonely Afternoon" by Flora Purim, "Upa Neguinho (live)" by Elis Regina,"Manha De Carnival" by Louie Ramirez, "Barsanova Brown" by Eddie Cano, and more.

A dream of a set from the folks at Numero Group – a special package that digs through all their many collections and archive projects, and comes up with some of the funkiest cuts in the bunch! Unlike some of their other compilations, this one focuses on the groove first – and the groove is nice and funky, hard and gritty, and feels like you're sitting next to the turntable, playing a stack of rare funk 45s, one after the other!

Mellow soul heaven – and one of the greatest compilations of this style we've ever heard! This is exactly the kind of laidback, tripped-out soul we totally love – a host of rare ballads and love songs pulled from the 45 underground of the late 60s and early 70s – sometimes by groups who are better known for funky tracks, other times by overlooked harmony groups and solo singers who rival the greatness of east coast artists like The Moments or Whatnauts! Titles include "I Don't Think I'll Ever Love Another" by Darling Dears, "Slippin Around" by Thomas East, "Since You've Been Gone" by Little Janice, "Love" by Black Conspirators, "What Am I Waiting For" by Black Exotics, "Who Do You Think You're Fooling (part 1)" by Symphonic Four, "I'll Find A True Love" by Lee Bonds, "Young Girl" by Jazzie Cazzie & The Eight Sounds, and "Is It Me You Really Love" by Black Velvet.

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!

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

✨✧ VariousFeel The Beat – Afro Funk ... CD
Big Sur (Italy), 2006. Used ... Out Of Stock
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.

Analog Africa (Germany), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... 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.

Alessandro Alessandroni/Francesco DeMasiLesbo (180 gram limited edition pressing) ... LP
Beat/BTF (Italy), 1969. New Copy Gatefold ... $34.99 44.99
Sexy ladies on the cover, and some equally sexy sounds underneath – served up in a perfect 60s Italian blend of jazz and bossa-based styles! Sweeping strings bring a nice sense of depth to some numbers, while others have a more intimate feel – either via spare guitar, or some jazzy elements on piano, sax, and organ – shifting instrumentation that really keeps things interesting throughout, and which makes the record feel like some rich narrative on its own, in sound – without any need for the images on the screen. The whole thing is wonderful – one of those Italian soundtrack treasures that delivers even more than it promises – and music was composed by Alessandro Alessandroni and Francesco De Masi, then orchestrated by De Masi, with some cool wordless vocal moments as well. Titles include a number of variations on "Lesbo" plus the sweet vocal opener "Qualsiasi Cosa", "Crepuscolo Sul Mare", and "IL'Isola Dell'Amore". LP, Vinyl record album

BushmenBushmen (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Beat Rocket, Mid 60s. New Copy ... $23.99 24.99
Great garagey work from The Bushmen – a mid 60s combo from Fresno, CA – and one who reveled in the best gritty modes of the time! The vocals are stark, the rhythms are too, and there's some great swirling organ lines in there amidst all the guitar – a garage/psych blend at times, or more proto-punk at others – especially given the way that lead singer Roger Pollack has a punk-like ability to trade tunefulness for sheer raw power when he's putting over a tune! The group burned brightly, and definitely to strong to sustain – as the 9 tracks here are the only recorded evidence of their existence – titles that include "You Can't Sit Down", "Long Green", "Just Like Me", "Down Home Girl", "You Really Got Me", "The Last Time", and "Hitch Hike".

Hammond Beat, 2007. Used ... $9.99
Captain Hammond's a hero who definitely lives up to his name – a cat who hits the instrument hard – really wailing here with a classic 60s approach to his instrument! The album's awash in wonderful organ lines – grooves that are sometimes jazzy, sometimes more in a mod soul instrumental mode – backed with snapping drums and a bit of electric guitar, and recorded with a really perfect sound overall! Despite a somewhat gimmicky cover, there's a really solid feel to the set – a groove that would be right at home in some lost indie side from the 60s – especially the type that might play strongly on the London mod scene. Titles include "Half Man Half Organ", "Louder Than Sound", "Mechanaut", "Fired Up", "Universal Milk", "Full Steam Ahead", and "Don't Burst My Bubble". CD

Giancarlo ChiaramelloQuando Gli Uomini Armarono La Clave E – Con Le Donne Fecero Din-Don ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1971. New Copy ... $19.99
One of the more obscure entries in the caveman comedy genre that cropped up briefly at the end of the 60s – a set of very groovy tunes for a movie that has the females going on a sex strike to keep the men from fighting! There's very little in the music to tie the film to Lysistrata – as the tunes are delightfully whimsical, and move through a mix of bossa-styled jazz, mod rock moments, and a few funky touches – all in that best style put forth by the Italian scene in the 60s! The score has a few standout fuzzy/funky guitar bits, and maybe best of all are the vocal numbers – sung by Gli Alluminogeni, and based around this "Troglomen" theme – which has cool chanting in a very rhythmic way. 32 tracks in all – and a number of bonus tracks too!

A very groovy little soundtrack from the team of Guido and Maurizio De Angelis – one that was penned to accompany an offbeat Bud Spencer film of the late 70s, and which offers up plenty of variations on the catchy theme! Bud plays Bulldozer – an ex-US football player, holed up in Italy – where he cobbles together a team of locals to take down the team of the US Army stationed nearby – a goofy plot, but one that's made that much better by the work of the De Angelis brothers! The core theme is initially sung by Oliver Onions, in English – then taken through a range of great instrumental readings that echo some of the styles used by Guido and Maurizio on their straighter crime and action scores, but with lots of sweet twists and turns along the way.
