Obscure bit of soul from this duo who also recorded an earlier record on Imperial. The vibe is sort of a straight 70s groove, and Vella's vocals are a bit more upfront than Jimmie's. The cuts are all originals, and titles include "Rain", "Chica Boom", "Door Is Open", and "Then I Woke Up". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ GC CameronGC Cameron ... LP
Motown, 1976. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Strong work from GC Cameron – really making a bold mark here on his own – working in a smooth, rich, masculine style that's a bit like some of the best early 70s material from Eddie Kendricks! Arrangements are by James Carmichael, Paul Riser, Wade Marcus, Gene Page, and other smooth soul talents – and GC's got this edgey vocal approach that strikes out from the backings very strongly, with a hip dope sound on the best cuts, almost in a blacksploitation soundtrack mode – with a sharper edge than on his previous group recordings. Titles include a great version of "If I Ever Lose This Heaven", plus the cuts "Me & My Life", "It's So Hard To Say Goodbye To Yesterday", "Strong Love", "Share Your Life", "Truly Blue", and "Don't Want To Give It Up".

✨✧ Rafael CameronCameron ... CD
Salsoul, 1980. Used ... Out Of Stock
The debut from Rafael Cameron – a pretty soulful set for Salsoul produced by Brass Connection's Randy Muller! Cameron's got a nice deep soul sound to his vocals, and although the arrangements are uptempo and clubby on some tracks, they're not there to cover up the singing, and have a nice soulful groove! Muller plays piano, flute and some of the percussion, with some sweet guitar in the mix, and some congas – with nice female backing vocals, too! Cuts are on the longer side, and include the dancefloor groover "Let's Get It Off", plus "Funkdown", "Magic Of You", and "Together" and "Feelin's". CD includes the bonus instrumental "All That's Good To Me". CD

✨✧ GC CameronLove Songs & Other Tragedies (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Motown/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A tremendous solo act from GC Cameron – a singer who first rose to fame in The Spinners, but who really sounds wonderful on his own! GC's moved away from The Spinners here – into a wide range of styles that show him ready to take on most of the rest of the competition! He's working here with the best of the best of Motown – production from Stevie Wonder and Willie Hutch – and arrangements by both, plus Paul Riser, Gene Page, James Carmichael, and Frank Wilson – all of whom really give their best to the record, and show that Motown was putting plenty of effort into making GC one of the next big stars of the 70s. We're not sure why things never took off as strongly for Cameron, but whatever the case, the album's a great step for the solo artist – on cuts that include "If You Don't Love Me", "Tippin", "All In Love Is Fair", "If You're Ever Gonna Love Me", "Come Get This Thang", "I'm Gonna Give You Respect", and "Let Me Down Easy". CD features an insane amount of bonus tracks – 13 more tracks that include "Act Like A Shotgun", "Girl I Really Love You", "I'm Gonna Get You (parts 1 & 2)", "Don't Wanna Play Pajama Games", "You Are That Special One", "Have I Lost You", "Time", "Topics", and "No Matter Where".

George Adams/Don PullenDon't Lose Control ... LP
Soul Note (Italy), 1979. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A trashy cover, but a great little record – one that's filled with wonderfully sensitive sounds from the team of George Adams and Don Pullen – working here in some really relaxed, soulful territory! The album's got a laidback feel that's a nice change from some of the more cerebral modes of both players – almost a bit more spontaneous than some of their other recordings together, with a different sort of spirit on each track, and a style that slides easily between different modes of jazz. Adams plays tenor and flute, and sings on one track – Pullen's on acoustic piano, and other players include Cameron Brown on bass and Dannie Richmond on drums. Titles include "Double Arc Jake", "Autumn Song", "Don't Lose Control", "Remember", and "Places & Faces". LP, Vinyl record album

George Adams/Don Pullen QuartetLive At Montmartre ... CD
Timeless/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1985. New Copy ... $13.99
Solidly soaring work from tenorist George Adams – recording live here with pianist Don Pullen, one of his best musical partners during the 80s! The album's got a bit more of a bite than some of the pair's studio sessions – a bit straighter overall, but recorded with a nice degree of energy, and some long tracks that really let both players open up nicely – in a combo that also features John Scofield on guitar, Cameron Brown on bass, and Dannie Richmond on drums. The inclusion of Scofield's guitar changes up the group's sound in a nice way – adding in some more chromatic elements that really stand out – and titles include "IJ", "Flame Games", "Song Everlasting", and "Forever Lovers".

Captain SkyAdventures Of Captain Sky ... CD
AVI/Past Due, 1978. New Copy ... $15.99
A legendary funk set from late 70s Chicago – served up by our own Captain Sky, aka Daryl Cameron – an imposing figure who often worked in the same space-themed territory as the P-Funk empire in the mid 70s! The difference here, though, is that Cameron wrote, produced, and put the whole thing together himself – with help from a few friends in the studio – making the album a great homegrown attempt to rival the strength of the bigger funk ensembles of the period – something The Captain and crew do pretty darn well throughout! There's lots of heavy bass on the set – a strong precursor of modes to come – mixed with riffing guitar, sweet keyboards, and plenty of tight rhythms – on cuts that include the famous sample cut "Super Sporm" – a killer extended track with a great conga break, and a tight old school sample sound – plus "Now That I Have You", "Saturday Night Move-Ease", "Wonder Worm" and "Can't Stop Now".

CCSCCS – A's, B's & Rarities ... CD
EMI/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), Early 70s. New Copy ... About December 15, 2020 (delayed)
Brilliant work from CCS – a jazz-rock big band led by UK blues rocker Alexis Korner, arranged by Brit easy maestro John Cameron, and produced to full strength by the legendary Mickie Most! The group had a sound that was really great – with lots of fuzzy guitars up front in the mix, supported by a larger, fuller blend of horns, funky bass, and drums. The sound was a more rock-based take on styles that had been showing up on late 60s soundtracks and 70s sound library albums – but which is served up here with a more straightforward punch that makes for plenty of guitar-based funky moments. A few tracks get a bit bluesier – in keeping with Korner's heritage – but the whole set grooves pretty darn nicely, and features 2 previously unreleased numbers! Titles include "Whole Lotta Love", "Boom Boom", "Salome", "Tap Turns On The Water", "The Band Played The Boogie", "Hang It On Me", "I Want You Back", "If I Never Sing Another Song", and "Primitive Love".

PS Artbooks (UK), Early 50s. New Copy ... $9.99 49.99
Dark Mysteries promises "eerie adventures" and it definitely lives up to that promise – as the book is filled with very creepy stories from the glory days of postwar horror comics! The publication ran alongside the early days of EC Comics horror, and also features some of that company's artists too – but was always a bit more stark and rough around the edges, which makes the eerie adventures inside seem even more spooky by comparison! There's plenty of skeletons and ghouls within – the kind of dark alley tales that made the world of early 50s America feel like it was about to become a playground for the supernatural. Artwork in this volume is by Wally Wood, Joe Orlando, Lou Cameron, Vince Napoli, Bill Fraccio, Hy Fleishman, and others. Book

Bob DegenChildren Of The Night ... CD
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $16.99
Pianist Bob Degen is great here – but the record shines equally from the contributions of the great Terumasa Hino – who plays cornet throughout, and really puts a bold sort of sparkle on the record! In truth, the whole group is great – a quartet that also features Cameron Brown on bass and Motohiko Hino on drums – and there's a soaring, positive energy to the record that really stands as one of Degen's strongest statements on wax – a tremendous session that also features two originals by the leader, and two more by Hino – played with nonstop creative energy throughout! Titles include "Blues For Hall", "Sun Dive", "Children Of The Night", and "Neged". CD

Dewey RedmanChoices ... CD
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1992. New Copy ... $16.99
Late work from avant tenor legend Dewey Redman – and surprisingly great, with all the best energy of his sides from older years! The album features Dewey playing in a trio with Cameron Brown on bass and Leon Parker on drums – plus guest appearances on about half the tracks by a young Joshua Redman, who really helps flesh out the sound of the set – at a point when he was just starting to let the world know about his talents. Redman senior is still the main attraction, though – blowing strongly on alto, tenor, and even a bit of musette – but also letting Joshua take all the horn parts on one track. Titles include surprisingly great readings of two standard ballads – "Everything Happens To Me" and "Imagination" – plus the tracks "Le Clit", "For Mo", and "O'Besso". CD

John SchroederDolly Catcher ... CD
Radioactive (UK), Late 60s. Used ... $19.99
One of the most massively tripped-out albums ever from Brit Easy maestro John Schroeder – a record that blends together a wide range of mod, jazzy, funky, and fuzzy styles – and which is arguably Schroeder's greatest record ever! The title and cover might be a bit off-putting – but there's nothing "kiddie" about this set, as John only meant the title to refer to himself as "one who catches dollies" (or a chick magnet, in the parlance of today!) A key part of the album is fellow Brit Easy legend John Cameron – who's helping Schroeder with the arrangements and direction of the group – both of them miles away from their initial work in Sounds Orchestral, and going here for an approach that uses funky flute, tripping strings, fuzzy guitar, and loads of other excellent bits pulled from the sound of late 60s London. Titles include "Softly Softly Catches Dolly", "Up Up & Away", "But She Ran The Other Way", "Things I Should Have Said", "Epistle To Dippy", "The Dolly Catcher", "Explosive Corrosive Joseph", "I Was Made To Love Her", and "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds".

Archie SheppMontreux One ... CD
Arista Freedom/DA Music (Germany), 1975. Used ... $14.99
Great live material from Shepp – not out or crazy, but also not spiritual or hippy dippy, either. The record's kind of a perfectly soulful straight ahead set – in a mode that hints at the traditional direction Shepp would take at the time, but with a lot more interesting moments. The group's a quartet with Charles Greenlee on trombone, Dave Burrell on piano, Cameron Brown on bass, and Beaver Harris on drums – and the tracks feature Shepp soloing with a lot of soul, and criss crossing styles from track to track. "U-jamaa" is a strong straight number – and the 3 other titles are "Lush Life", "Crucificado" and "Miss Toni". CD

Kamasi WashingtonBecoming – Music From The Netflix Documentary ... CD
Young Turks, 2020. New Copy ... $14.99 15.99
Really great work from saxophone genius Kamasi Washington – music that's very different than the longform sounds of his epic sets – yet very beautiful too, and clearly showing off a whole new feather in Kamasi's mighty cap! As you can tell from the title, the work is music for a documentary soundtrack – and Washington really rises to the occasion with music of majesty – all jazz throughout, but mixed with some extra strings at times too – a bit like those fantastic instrumental moments that Bill Lee did for the early films of Spike – served up here with a similar sense of pride, power, and subtle righteousness! Other players include Rickey Washington on alto and flute, Ryan Porter on trombone, Dontae Winslow on trumpet, and Cameron Graves on piano and Fender Rhodes – on titles that include "Take In The Story", "Shot Out Of A Cannon", "Song For Fraser", "Southside V1", "Detail", "Fashion Now & Then", "Connections", "Looking Forward", and "I Am Becoming".

Young Turks, 2018. New Copy 3 CDs ... $23.99 24.98
Truly tremendous work from saxophonist Kamasi Washington – a set that may well even blow away his groundbreaking Epic album – given the scope of soul and spirit in the music! As with the previous project, this one's double-length, but maybe feels even more fitted to the mode – as Washington leads this incredible ensemble that unifies a jazz group, orchestra, and choir – all at a level that might even top some of Alice Coltrane's early 70s albums for Impulse! There's a richness in vision here right from the start – music that knows what it is, where it's going, and what it can accomplish – very personal, but also very welcoming too – just the right sort of spirit to help get the nation back on track! Washington blows tenor throughout – and gets great help from Cameron Graves on piano, Brandon Coleman on organ and keyboards, and Miles Mosley on bass – whose work alone really seems to drive the proceedings! Titles include "Can You Hear Him", "Fists Of Fury", "Will You Sing", "Journey", "Street Fighter Mas", "The Space Travelers Lullaby", "The Psalmnist", "One Of One", and "The Invincible Youth". Comes with a bonus CD called The Choice – with the Kamasi-composed "The Secret Of Jinsonson", "Agents Of Multiverse" and "My Family", plus covers of "Will You Love Me Tomorrow" and "Ooh Child" – it's another 38 minutes of music hidden in the center of the cover!

Not a standard sound library record, but one that's every bit as funky – thanks to a great ear for the right sort of 70s grooves from the folks at ATA Records! The music is contemporary, from the label that's been giving us some great funky 45s over the years – but the package has all the look and feel of a rare UK sound library record from decades back – and a sound that definitely matches that vibe too! These aren't fake funk tunes, or simple remix numbers that try to sound retro – they're just the sort of instrumental grooves you'd hear from Alan Hawkshaw, John Cameron, or other UK sound library giants – served up here by a nameless array of musicians, on great tracks that include "The Needle Nose", "Whack Slap & Blow", "Kaye Okay", "Wiretap", "Siren Sea", "Planet Nine", "Midnight Heist", "Nuclear Wind 1", and "Wigged Out".

That's a picture of Tokyo on the cover, but all the tracks here are from the glory days of New York club/disco powerhouse Salsoul Records – served up by DJ Osshy in a non-stop mix that includes 24 tracks in all! The sharp, funky grooves of Salsoul cuts really lend themselves to this sort of mixing – and Osshy does a great job of laying them together back to back – maybe never messing them up at all or mixing things too much – but also never letting the energy stop for a minute! Titles include "Let Love Shine" by Skyy", "Rap O Clap O" by Joe Bataan & The Mestizo Band, "Flakes Rap (Jimmy Simpson 12" mix)" by Flakes, "Spring Rain" by Silvetti, "Everyman (Danny Krivit re-edit)" by Double Exposure, "I Got My Mind Made Up (Larry Levan 12")" by Instant Funk, "Falling In Love (Shep Pettibone 12")" by Surface, "The Beat Goes On & On (Jim Burgess 12")" by Ripple, "Helplessly (Tom Moulton 12" mix)" by Moment Of Truth, "Let No Man Put Asunder (Shep Pettibone 12")" by First Choice, and "All That's Good To Me (Francois K 12") by Rafael Cameron.

Be! (Germany), 1976/1977. New Copy 8CD ... $134.99 179.98
A heck of a collection – and one that really gets at the amazing array of free-thinking jazz that was brewing up on the European scene during the 70s! The set brings together over eight hours of music recorded during two years of this legendary festival – and each new disc has some great surprises along the way! There's some possibly more familiar material here – such as long improvisations that include a solo piano performance by Joachim Kuhn, two by a Mal Waldron trio with Jimmy Woode on bass and Allen Blairman on drums, one by a trio headed by pianist Yosuke Yamashita and with Akira Sakata on alto, two more by the duo of Peter Brotzmann on tenor and Han Bennink on drums, and a final two long improvisations by a great Archie Shepp gruop with Richard Greenlee on trombone, Dave Burell on piano, Cameron Brown on bass, and Beaver Harris on drums! Yet that's only the tip of the iceberg – as there's a full CD of music by a group led by Hugo Heredia on saxes and flute – with Horace Parlan on piano, Dodo Goys on bass, Tullio D'Piscopo on drums, and Mandrake Ivanir Do Nascimento on percussion. And there's another CD that features an hour-long improvisation by a version of the Willem Breuker Kollektief with Leo Cuypers on piano, Maarten Van Norden on tenor, Boy Raaymakers on trumpet, and Bernhard Hunnekink and Willem Van Manen on trombones. There's also a very long track by a cool quartet headed by Polish alto giant Zbigniew Namyslowski – and one more by the French Machi Oul Big Band. There's also tracks by Riot, with Uli Beckerhoff on trumpet; Grumpff with Michael Schlaper on tenor and soprano, and Ekkehard Jost on baritone; Mumps with Albert Mangelsdorff on trombone and John Surman on tenor; and the Eddie Prevost Quartet with Geoff Hawkins on tenor and Gerry Gold on trumpet. And last but not least are two long trcks by the Czech group Celula Jazz Crew – with Laco Deczi on trumpet, Karel Ruzicka on electric piano, and Svatopluc Kosvanec on trombone. Phew – that's a lot of music, and the whole thing comes in a very cool 10" box set, complete with a booklet of notes, too! CD

Z Records (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $31.99
A fantastic entry in this excellent series – one that goes way past the disco and boogie promised in the title – and which includes some modern soul gems that we might never have otherwise heard! There's a sense of warmth that really links these tunes together – not too-fast bangers for the clubs, but instead some rock-solid rare soul tunes that just happen to have a groove – and in styles that are way more than just familiar late 70s disco styles! We've loved the previous entries in this essential series, but Woody Bianchi really knocks this one out of the park – thanks to a song list that includes "Someone Special" by Rideout, "Springtime" by Arlana, "Love is The Answer" by Jay Player, "Sugar Sugar Sugar" by Razz Ma Tazz, "You're My Latest Inspiration" by Original Just Us, "Come On Everybody" by Coco York & Serge Ermoll Ensemble, "Disco Break (Woody Bianchi edit)" by Circle, "If I Love You" by GC Cameron, "Hot Flashes" by Magic City Band, "I Wanna Know" by Sunny Gayle, "Rapture" by Rev Jerry Burns & The Youth Ensemble, "Can You Feel It" by Formula One, "I Know Why You're Here" by The Variations, and "Rio De Janeiro (Woody Bianchi edit)" by Ipanema Brothers. 2LP set features 14 tracks in all.

✨✧ VariousUnusual Sounds ... CD
Anthology, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $10.99 11.99
The sounds here aren't that unusual at all – and in fact, they're mostly pretty darn groovy – a superb selection of sound library funk from the glory days of the European scene – collected here together in support of the book of the same name! In case you're new to the scene – the Euro sound library world of the 60s and 70s was a place where extremely creative musicians could come together and create their own sort of grooves without a worry for placement on the record charts – as most of these cuts were locked in the vaults, then licensed briefly for use on radio, TV, or commercials – which led to a few of these gems getting some famous, but anonymous play on classic cop or crime shows at the time. The compilation brings together some of the best examples of this scene – loads of cuts that have been our favorites over the years – a whopping 20 tracks that include "Half Forgotten Daydreams" by John Cameron, "Funky Fanfare" by Keith Mansfield, "Weeping Eelgrass" by Mladen Franko, "Mild Maniac" by Peter Patzer, "Dream Number Two" by Roland Hollinger, "Soft Wind" by Gary Pacific Orchestra, "Tropicola" by Stringtronics, "Survivor" by Klaus Weiss, "La Dimonstrazione" by Daniele Patucchi, "Feeling Tense" by Stefano Torossi, "Xenos Cosmos" by Janko Nilovic, "Night Breeze" by Franco Micalizzi, and "Fancy Good" by Electric Machine.

✨✧ George Adams/Don Pullen QuartetLife Line ... CD
Timeless/Solid (Japan), 1981. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A strong outing from this key post-Mingus collaboration – and a record that really shows both Don Pullen and George Adams really coming into their own! Pullen's piano can have plenty of edges, as can Adams' tenor – but there's also some warmer, lyrical moments that really round things out – kind of a balance between righteous energy and deeper quietude that the musicians might have learned during their time with Charles Mingus – taken to a logical small group extension here. Adams also plays a bit of flute, which is especially nice – and the group also includes Cameron Brown on bass and Dannie Richmond on drums. Titles include "The Great Escape Or Run John Henry Run", "Seriously Speaking", "Soft Seas", and "Protection". CD

Columbia, 1971. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Maynard Ferguson's looking a bit shaggy on the cover of this one, but his grooves are as tight as ever – and packed with a good degree of funk in the arrangements too! Maynard's returning here to the great territory of the MF Horn album – and using help from British arrangers that include Keith Mansfield, John Cameron, and Kenny Wheeler – all of whom help push the already-blasting MF groove even further into the stratosphere! There's a great mix of American pop, British groovy, and jazzy soloing to the set – and somehow the construction of the tunes is actually a perfect place for the tricks, twists, and turns that Maynard was bringing into his solo work at the time. Titles include "The Serpent", "Move Over", "Aquarius", "Your Song", "Stoney End", "Living In The Past", and "Fire & Rain". LP, Vinyl record album

Cadence, 1979. Sealed ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Beaver Harris always has an amazing way of holding things together – a kind of soulful unity he seems to have learned from Archie Shepp – which really holds our interest in a long-form record like this! The title track spans most of both sides of the album – the searing original "Necaumongus", performed by a group that features Harris on drums, Ken McIntyre on alto and flute, Ricky Ford on tenor, Hamiet Bluiett on baritone, Cameron Brown on bass, and Don Pullen on piano – all coming together with sounds that are bold one minute, sensitive the next – a depth of performance that's simply breathtaking, especially as the piece hits its more sensitive second half. The album follows with "Well Kept Secret", a tune that's a bit more offbeat, yet still has its own core too – and which features unusual steel drum work from Francis Hayes! LP, Vinyl record album

Great work from the Don Pullen-George Adams Quartet – a great post-Mingus group that features Adams on tenor and Pullen on piano – along with Dannie Richmond on drums and Cameron Brown on bass! The sound of these sides is really wonderful – as inventive and exploratory as some of Pullen's earlier work, yet carved out with a sense of rhythm and soulfulness that all players had clearly learned from Mingus – a focus that's really wonderful, and which takes this Blue Note gem far past some of the other Pullen/Adams collaborations in other settings. Titles include "A Time For Sobriety", "Mr Smoothie", "Just Foolin Around", and "We've Been Here All The Time". LP, Vinyl record album

PS Artbooks (UK), Early 50s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
With a name like Strange Terrors, you know this stuff's going to be creepy – and the rare comics within definitely live up to that promise! The publication is one of the most obscure from the world of postwar horror comics – and features lots of weird and unusual work from those late years right before the comics code was put in place to stomp out material like this – spooky stories of the supernatural, presented here in full color reproductions of the entire issues – including the fantastic covers, and even the vintage ads too! This second volume is from a period when the publication morphed into a 25 cent, triple-sized format – so it's like getting six comics in all – with artwork from Lou Cameron, Joe Kubert, Bill Molno, Pete Morisi, AC Hollingsworth, and Bernard Baily.

As with the O'Jays and the Isleys in recent years, the Temptations are coming back strong – sounding as great as they ever have in their post-70s recordings, and working here with a lineup that includes the legendary Otis Williams, as well as Ron Tyson, Terry Weeks, GC Cameron, and Joe Herdon. Production is understandably more modern than the group's classic work – but the vocals are still thoughtfully arrayed amidst some heavier beats and modern urban backings, with just the right amount of smooth sensuous touches to come off right. Titles include "Round Here", "Still Tempting", "Stay Together", "You Are Necessary In My Life (The Wedding Song)", "Mr Fix It", "All The Wrong People", and "Why Can't We Be Lovin Friends". CD

Really great work from saxophone genius Kamasi Washington – music that's very different than the longform sounds of his epic sets – yet very beautiful too, and clearly showing off a whole new feather in Kamasi's mighty cap! As you can tell from the title, the work is music for a documentary soundtrack – and Washington really rises to the occasion with music of majesty – all jazz throughout, but mixed with some extra strings at times too – a bit like those fantastic instrumental moments that Bill Lee did for the early films of Spike – served up here with a similar sense of pride, power, and subtle righteousness! Other players include Rickey Washington on alto and flute, Ryan Porter on trombone, Dontae Winslow on trumpet, and Cameron Graves on piano and Fender Rhodes – on titles that include "Take In The Story", "Shot Out Of A Cannon", "Song For Fraser", "Southside V1", "Detail", "Fashion Now & Then", "Connections", "Looking Forward", and "I Am Becoming".

Pure fantasticness from the great Kamasi Washington – a set that's much more compact than his sprawling Epic, but which has an equally wonderful vibe overall! The album features material that Washington performed at the Whitney Biennial – to accompany paintings by his sister – but the whole thing stands alone beautifully, with that free-flowing, always spiritual vibe that's made Washington one of the strongest young jazz talents to emerge in recent years! The music resonates strongly with the work of some of his key LA contemporaries – like Ronald Bruner Jr, Miles Mosley, Cameron Graves, and Thundercat – all of whom perform in the large ensemble – helping Kamasi's tenor soar to the skies on waves of collaborative joy. Washington composed, arranged, and even produced the record himself – and in some ways, the tightness of the performance makes the whole thing even more satisfying than Epic – as we hope you feel too, on titles that include "Desire", "Humility", "Truth", "Integrity", "Knowledge", and "Perspective".

The music is contemporary, from the label that's been giving us some great funky 45s over the years – but the package has all the look and feel of a rare UK sound library record from decades back – and a sound that definitely matches that vibe too! These aren't fake funk tunes, or simple remix numbers that try to sound retro – they're just the sort of instrumental grooves you'd hear from Alan Hawkshaw, John Cameron, or other UK sound library giants – served up here by a nameless array of musicians, on great tracks that include "The Needle Nose", "Whack Slap & Blow", "Kaye Okay", "Wiretap", "Siren Sea", "Planet Nine", "Midnight Heist", "Nuclear Wind 1", and "Wigged Out".

A great selection of older Motown numbers – with a few newer tracks from the 70s! The selection of tunes is a bit strange – given that the film was film set in Chicago in the mid 60's, whick makes you think the kids would have been listening to Chicago tunes on local labels like Okeh, Brunswick, and other labels – but overall, it's still a decent set. The original tunes are pretty great – like the instrumental "2 Pigs and a Hog", which was an old sample back in the 80's – and the tracks "Haulin", "Sweet First Love", "Cold Blooded", and "Three AM", which feature music by Freddie Perren. Other older tunes include "Stop In The Name of Love" by The Supremes, "Baby Love" by The Supremes, "Fingertips" by Stevie Wonder, "My Girl" by The Temptations, "Reach Out I'll Be There" by Four Tops, "It's So Hard To Say Goodbye To Yesterday" by GC Cameron, "Beechwood 45789" by The Marvelettes, and "Ooo Baby Baby" by Smokey Robinson & The Miracles.

Motown/MoWest/Light In The Attic, Early 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first ever compilation of the best music made for MoWest – the eclectic, but still soulful cuts made when Berry Gordy Jr. relocated from Motown to the west coast in the early 70s – releasing cool and sometimes strange music with a soul background, yet toasted by LA sunshine! The MoWest subsidiary lasted just a few years, and gets overlooked in the canonization of Motown at it's most classic and revolutionary – but the legacy is pretty incredible. Funk, sunshine rock and soul fused adventurously by a stunningly diverse roster – late period Frankie Vallie & The Four Seasons (who's comp-opening track is a slept on sunshine pop-soul classic), breezy-jazzy-soul from Odyssey, the sister funk of Sisters Love, a stunning solo left turn from Spinners singer GC Cameron and more great stuff from Syreeta, The Commodores, Suzee Ikeda, Thelma Houston and others. We've been dying for a well selected MoWest comp like this for years, and Light In The Attic stepped to the plate and knock it right out of the park. The songs choices are great, the notes are great. . .everything about it is a win. Essential! Includes "You're A Song (That I Can't Sing)" and "The Night" by Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons, "Our Lives Are Shaped By What We Love" and "Broken Road" by Odyssey, "Don't You Be Worried" by The Commodores, "A Heart Is A House" Nu Page, "I Ain't Going Nowhere" by Thelma Houston, "I Can't Give Back The Love I Feel For You" by Suzee Ikeda, "You've Got To Make The Choice" and "Give Me Your Love" by The Sisters Love and more.

A tremendous bit of harmony soul from Chicago – one of the few cases where the Windy City really gave the east coast a run for its money – and the landmark album from teen soul quartet Brighter Side Of Darkness! Although young, Brighter Side managed to bring a depth to their work that was way more than kiddie soul – a heartfelt, heartbreaking quality that was all adult, no matter how youthful the themes – and their vocals are a perfect contrast to the fuller arrangements from producers Clarence Johnson and Johnny Cameron. The set contains the group's classic "Love Jones", still one of the best fragile harmony tracks of the early 70s – plus loads of other great numbers like "I Owe You Love", "I'm A Loser", "Just A Little Bit", and a superb remake of "Summer Ride".

And while a few Ella purists might complain about the record, we totally dig it – and find it to be very similar to her excellent MPS album from the same stretch – a whole new sound for a singer with the range to take on anything!

The deepest sounds so far from Ryan Porter – a double-length album of spiritual majesty, and a set that marks Porter as one of the key up-and-coming players on the West Coast Get Down scene! The record has long tracks that are very far-thinking jazz all the way through – mostly instrumental, although with the occasional vocal passage here and there – delivered with this sense of promise and mission that we never would have expected in Porter's music at the start – both in the strength of his trombone solos, and the overall conception of the sound. The core group is fantastic – Kamasi Washington on tenor, Cameron Graves and Brandon Coleman on Fender Rhodes and piano, Thundercat on electric bass, Miles Mosely on acoustic bass, and Tony Austin on drums – and titles include "Blame It On The Sun", "Carriacou", "Oscalypso", "Peple Talk", "World On Wheels", "Mesosphere", "Madiba", "Heaven Only Knows", and a great jazz take on the Rotary Connection classic "Memory Band".

A totally wonderful collection of work from Malaco Records – an imprint that's best known for its southern soul, blues, and gospel recordings – but one that's also got a fair bit of modern soul in its catalog as well! In fact, Malaco was really instrumental in helping move forward the torch of southern soul at a time when other bigger labels like Stax, TK, and Atlantic were really losing steam – and the cuts here are the cream of the crop from a time when Malaco was turning out some amazing sounds that rival the best modern soul from scenes in Chicago, New York, or Philly! If you only know the deep soul side of Malaco, you'll really be stunned here – and the set does a great job of pulling out some lesser-known recordings from the label, in the best Free Soul tradition. Over 80 minutes of music – with tracks that include "I Can't Do Enough For You Baby" by Tommy Tate, "Groovin" by Power, "I Need Your Love" by Patterson Twins, "Girl Overboard" by Dorothy Moore, "Get Up & Dance" by Freedom, "You Used To Be Mine" by Mosley & Johnson, "Make It With You" by Ruby Wilson, "I'm For Real" by King Floyd, "Give Me Your Love" by GC Cameron, "When Can We Do This Again" by ZZ Hill, "Let Your Love Rain Down On Me" by Jewel Bass, and "Pillow Talk" by Fern Kinney.

Sonny StittTune-Up/Constellation – Endgame Brilliance ... CD
Cobblestone/32 Jazz, 1972. Used ... $11.99
Early 70s magic from Sonny Stitt – two albums recorded in 1972 for the Cobblestone label! First up is Tune Up – a great one from Stitt's post-Prestige years, and a real back-to-basics effort that recalls the genius of his work on Roost! The format is straight and simple – Stitt's tenor and alto fronting a quartet that includes Barry Harris, Sam Jones, and Alan Dawson – all playing in a way that puts Sonny in command on all tracks, blowing with an amazing tone that makes us want to throw away all his funk, organ, and electric outings, and just concentrate on these straight acoustic sides. Stitt has a way of blowing the reed like he's got his whole mouth moving into the sax – an earthy, human, and personal feel that first came out strongly in his work during the late 50s, but which has grown even more by this point – even if you couldn't hear the development on other sets. And given our love of funk and electric sides, we're honestly surprised we find ourselves championing a record like this from the early 70s – but it's a great one, and not to be missed if you remotely dig Stitt! Titles include "Tune Up", "Idaho", "Just Friends", "Groovin High", and "Blues For Prez & Bird". Constellation is all bop and all soul all the way through, and recorded with a tight quartet that features Barry Harris on piano, Sam Jones on bass, and Roy Brooks on drums! The style's a bit like Sonny's work of the late 50s, but there's also a fluidity to the rhythm section that makes it a bit different too – a sound that's warm, open, and soulful – creating a space into which Stitt settles nicely and blows like mad. There's no gimmicks at all, just solid classic jazz skills – and titles include "Casbah", "Constellation", "By Accident", "Webb City", and "Topsy". CD

Soar through the skies on this sweet collection of rare African funk – the sixth volume in a series that seems to get better and better with each new release! Most of the cuts here are heavy on styles that resonate with the American scene of the late 70s – particularly the large ensemble funk modes that came on strong when the bigger US funk acts moved from the indie labels to the majors – tight, but never too smooth – and topped here with some elements that also echo other West African styles, but with a vibe that always seems to lean more towards a strong inspiration from American funk and soul! Titles include "Black Soul" by Airto Fogo, "Ngigna Loko" by Ngalle Jojo, "You" by Vicky Edimo, "Ndolo Embe Mulema" by Eko, "My Native Land" by Mike Kounou, "Be Yourself" by Akwassa, and "Kosa Mba" by JK Mandengue.

Spiritual grooves galore – a magnificent set that brings together rare tracks from the 70s and 80s, plus a few like-minded contemporary cuts as well! The vibe here is very much up to the "waltz a nova" in the title – that modal mode that first came on strongly in the 60s, then was picked up even more by the post-Coltrane generation – who used its progressive rhythms to really stretch out to the skies in some very righteous ways! Most of the tunes here have a great little groove, even when gentle – and the package is put together beautifully, so that the music really builds as things roll on – picking up even more power than before, and really leaving us wanting more by the end. The whole thing was done by Toru Hashimoto – easily one of the best compilers of our generation – and the package runs for nearly 80 minutes in length, with cuts that include "Faith For My Mind" by Solar, "Little B's Poem" by Dee Dee Bridgewater, "After The Morning" by John Hicks, "Moves" by Doug Hammond, "Coltrane" by Descendents Of Mike & Phoebe, "Steam" by Charles Greenlee, "Naima" by Kindred Spirits Ensemble, "Black Forest Stomp" by Hipnosis, "Tropic Sons" by Abdul Rahim Ibrahim, "Children" by Haki R Madhubuti, and "Moment's Notice" by Pharoah Sanders.

✨✧ Al SmithMidnight Special ... CD
Prestige/Bluesville/OJC, 1960. Used ... Out Of Stock
The second Prestige album from Al Smith – a great little singer with a sublime blend of blues, jazz, and soul! Smith really came on strong at the start of his career, but then dropped out of sight pretty quickly after this one – and we're really not sure why, given what a great little record it is! The style here is even looser and more laidback than the first – with a fair bit of soul-jazz styled instrumentation, played in a late night mellow mode by a small combo that includes Robert Banks on organ, King Curtis on tenor, and Jimmy Lee on guitar. A few tracks are nicely longish, and really loosen things up a lot – allowing Smith to hit modes that few other singers of the time were doing. Titles include "I Can't Make It By Myself", "I've Been Mistreated", "You're A Sweetheart", "The Bells", "Ride On Midnight Special", and the hard-rocking "Don't Worry Bout Me". CD

Camille YarbroughIron Pot Cooker ... CD
Vanguard/Ace (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $8.99 14.98
One of THE spoken word classics of the 70s funk years – an amazing album based around the poetry of Camille Yarbrough – set to some amazing funky backings! The sound here is incredibly righteous – almost a more sophisticated version of Betty Davis – done with a stark, spare groove that makes the bass bits and drums really come out in the mix! Camille's got a heck of a lot of personal vision, and really works the album together as a whole – making for a set that's far more than just "poetry plus music" – and instead an audio tapestry with an incredibly deep sound! Includes a heavy rap on the streets that culminates in the great "Little Sally the Super Sex Star" – plus the classic "Take Yo Praise", which was sampled famously by Fatboy Slim – and the cuts "Can I Get A Witness" and "All Hid".

✨✧ Ronnie VonA Misteriosa Luta Do Reino De Parassempre Contra O Imperio De Nuncamais (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Polydor/Discos Mariposa (Argentina), 1969. Used ... Out Of Stock
Great late 60s work from Ronnie Von – an under-appreciated Brazilian rocker, and one with a sound that sits nicely between the Jovem Guarda generation and some of the headier groups to come in the 70s! There's a nice array of psychedelic influences at play here – strong echoes of British work of the time, but used in much more sophisticated ways than any Jovem Guarda acts – never a simple copycat approach, but also never as arty as some of the Tropicalia recordings of the time either. Ronnie's voice has a depth that allows some nice changes in mood from track to track – lightly lyrical one moment, a bit darker and more tripped-out the next – bringing a sense of variety to the record that almost recalls Caetano Veloso during the time, but a bit more rockish overall. Titles include "Atlantica", "Dindi", "De Como Meu Heroi Flash Gordon", "Foi Bom", "Rose Ann", "Comeci Uma Brincadeira", and "Mares De Areia". CD features 4 bonus tracks – earlier singles that include "Meu Bem", "Paraiso", "O Pequeno Principe", and "Meu Mundo Parou". CD

Third World/17 North Parade, 1976. New Copy ... $14.99 16.98
The title's a bit confusing, but Cornell Campbell's essentially saying that he's a stalwart – something we can completely agree with, given his strong legacy in Jamaican music – and the sublime sound of a 70s classic like this! Cornell's got a higher range than some of his contemporaries, but never in a way that makes his music sound too light or airy at all – because there's a sense of soul going on that maybe stands as a Jamaican counterpart to 70s Marvin Gaye, especially in the way that Campbell inflects his notes on the sweeter tunes on the set! Most of the production is handled by Bunny Lee or Joe Gibbs – and titles include "The Gorgon", "The Stal-A-Watt", "The Investigator", "Hypocrite", "Two Face Rasta", "Two Timer", "Boxing Around", and "Bandulu". 2CD set features 19 more bonus tracks – including "Conscious Rastaman", "The Gorgon Speaks", "Help Them O Lord", "Gun Court Law", "Dance In A Greenwich Farm", "Lion Of Judah", "Natty Dread In A Greenwich Farm", "I Shall Not Remove", and "Give Me Love".

Glen CampbellGlen Travis Campbell/I Knew Jesus/I Remember Hank Williams ... CD
Capitol/BGO (UK), 1972/1973. New Copy 2CD ... $10.99 16.99
A trio of early 70s albums from Glen Campbell – all of them a lot more obscure than his hits! Glen Travis Campbell has a cover proclaiming that the set is "a new musical path" – and producer Jimmy Bowen works with bigger backings from Larry Muhuberac to use soaring strings next to the acoustic core, in ways that push Glen into some of the more soulful expressions he had to offer. The approach is a bit hard to describe, but it's different both from country roots, and from Jimmy Webb territory – that majestic Glen Campbell sound rising up nicely – on tunes that include "One Last Time", "I Will Never Pass This Way Again", "Sweet Fantasy", "Running Scared", "Just For What I Am", and "The Last Thing On My Mind". I Knew Jesus is a record that continues the further exploration of Glen Campbell's vocal range – with some mellow fluid moments that are awash in deeper trills, mixed with more upfront tunes that do a great job of unlocking more of the country currents in Glen's talents – a great shift, and one that would come on even more strongly in his mid 70s return to fame. The set includes a great version of the Kinky Friedman song "Sold American" – one we maybe like even better than Kinky's – plus "I Take It On Home", "I Want To Be With You Always", "Give Me Back That Old Familiar Feeling", "You're The One", and "On This Road". On the final album, Glen Campbell takes on the music of Hank Williams – but in a way that often has the sort of dreamy haze that goes with the "I Remember" in the title! The songs are all Hank's, but the presentation isn't gritty honky tonk – and instead uses fuller backings with Glen's lead vocals, almost as if the whole thing were done in the mid 60s by Chet Atkins at RCA! Jimmy Bowen's at the helm, but there's backup singers and fuller strings than before – which really changes up the Campbell takes on tunes that include "Cold Cold Heart", "Half As Much", "Your Cheatin Heart", "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry", and "You Win Again".

Michael FeinbergFrom Where We Came ... CD
Steeplechase (Denmark), 2020. New Copy ... $16.99 19.98
Bassist Michael Feinberg has a round, rich tone on this record, right from the start – a great way of setting up a superb lineup that features Dave Liebman on soprano sax, Noah Preminger on tenor, Gary Versace on piano, and Ian Froman on drums! Liebman's sharpness is balanced wonderfully by the depth of Preminger – a twin-reed pairing that really makes the album sound like something special, and different – very much living up to the spirit of the strong original material by Feinberg, which comprises the entire set. The quality of the record is a bit hard to describe in words, but if you know the players, the meeting is even better on record than it is on paper – on titles that include "Louisville", "Cairo", "Nogales", "Tokyo", "East St Louis", and "Pontiac".

The first album recorded by singer Nkotti Francois and his Black Styls group – a combo who'd been backing Nkotti for years in clubs in Cameroon, and who work here with a very sharp sound right from the start! The instrumentation is often a bit unique – organ and guitar sometimes used with weird effects or unusual phrasing – mixed with strong basslines, and some occasional excellent tenor solos – which underscore the more soulful elements that are often brought to the record by the vocals of Francois! The singer is great, and the weird organ bits are equally nice – and very unique – on titles that include "Loko La Mboa", "O Mende Wele", "Ndola Njomba Bodi Mba Da Monjo Na Mbundo", "Natiki O Mundi Nwa Bato", "Bino Senga", and "Muboledi".

The Mocambos are back, and mightier than ever – thanks to help from a lineup of all-stars who include Lee Fields, Jswiss, Ice T, Gizelle Smith, and even German sci-fi legend Peter Thomas! The core sound of the group is as before – tight funk by a large ensemble of all-star players who've worked in a variety of other contemporary funk settings – but the addition of deeper soul and hip hop vocals to the record really opens things up – and maybe makes us appreciate the instrumentation at the core even more, since these guys do so a great job of moving around to accommodate the setting. And yet the whole thing is still strongly unified with Mighty Mocambos power – a great take on older funk modes, on titles that include "Stronger", "Return To Space", "Golden Shadow", "Take On The World", "Here We Go", "Bounce That Ass", "Where Do We Go From Here", and "Macumba".

Reprise/Real Gone, 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $25.99 26.99
A really wonderful little record – by a group who should have been much bigger than they were! Despite the fact that these guys are an obscure rock band with a silly name, the record's a perfect example of the subtly soulful work that was coming out of various west coast sources during the 70s – the kind of album-oriented work that yielded gems for play on underground FM radio, but which has been mostly lost to the shifting sands of time, save for some well-placed rescue in the reissue scene. The gem on this one is the smooth stepper "Fazon", but the album's got a few other nice ones too, with a jazzy tinge that's almost in debt to Mose Allison or Ben Sidran – that kind of cool blend of many elements with younger ideas that was bubbling up on the Bay Area scene. Titles include "Dancin Wizard", "Monkeys On the Moon", "Sneaky Smith", and "Astronaut Food". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Pete TownshendWho Came First ... LP
Track, 1972. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A fantastic first album from Pete Townshend – one that showed the world that he was a hell of a force to be reckoned with, even away from The Who! There's some elements here that link back to Pete's work with the band, but the music here is already showing lots of new ideas brewing in his solo space – some of the greater sensitivity of Townshend's solo voice – which might not always get showcased when Roger Daltrey was taking the lead – and also some different musical strands that might not have been right for The Who. Ronnie Lane takes the lead on "Evolution" – which you'll recognize from the world of The Faces – and other titles include the original acoustic version of "Pure & Easy", plus "Nothing Is Everything (Let's See Action)", "Time Is Passing", "Forever's No Time At All", "There's A Heartache Following Me", "Content", "Parvardigar", and "Sheraton Gibson".

A great set of groovers from the Cameo/Parkway label – a company that gave the world the biggest twist record of the 60s, but which also was perfectly poised to deliver all sorts of other upbeat tracks as well! The label was in Philly – a huge dance town in the early days of soul and rock – and the set list here is filled with the kind of cuts that were Philadelphia's answer to the rising sound of Motown – the roots of the Northern Soul sound that would be followed by soul collectors for decades! These aren't novelty hits, but upbeat cuts that groove plenty – most by soul artists, a few by pop singers – but all given the kind of tight instrumentation and strong studio handling that made the Philly scene such a standout. 22 tracks in all – including "Shimmy Shimmy" and "The Wah Watusi" by The Orlons, "Bristol Stomp" and "You Can't Sit Down" by the Dovells, "Mashed Potato Time" and "Do The Bird" by Dee Dee Sharp, "The 81" by Candy & The Kisses, "The Mash" by Tony Young & The Hippies, "Mexican Hat Rock" by The Applejacks, "Baby Do The Frog" by The Dardenelles, "The Swim (part 1)" by The Marlins, "Slow Twistin" by Chubby Checker & Dee Dee Sharp, "The Third House" by Bobby Rydell, "When You Dance" by The Turbans, "Everybody South Street" by The Taffys, "The Popeye Waddle" by Don Covay, and yes, "The Twist" by Chubby Checker.

Rare soul gems from a legendary Philly family of labels – the Cameo/Parkway imprints, and the related Fairmount as well! Cameo and Parkway were home to plenty of pop hits at the start of the 60s – but they always put their money back into the scene, and were close to the ground digging up the best and brightest new Philly acts – something that maybe made them one of the first and most important to unleash the strong legacy of Philadelphia soul! Given the hits on Cameo, the company always had a great hear for upbeat groovers – which also makes for plenty of Northern Soul magic here – a legacy almost to rival early Motown, collected here in a long-overdue official look at this side of the label. Titles include "Because Of My Heart" by Frankie Beverly & The Butlers, "I Love Him So" by Nikki Blu, "Village Of Tears" by Ben Zane, "Night Owl" by Bobby Paris, "Country Girl" by Vickie Baines, "Envy In My Eyes" by The Orlons, "You Got The Power" by The Four Exceptions, "You Didn't Say A Word" by Yovnne Baker, "Who Do You Think You Are" by Soul City, "The Grass" by Lonnie Youngblood, "Shake & Shingaling (part 1)" by Gene Waiters, "SOS" by Christine Cooper, "Pass Me By" by Hattie Winston, "Picture Me Gone" by Evie Sands, and "Eddie's My Name" by Eddie Holman.

The album's got a tremendous feel from the very first note – a furthering of the modernism that Little forged with Max Roach and Eric Dolphy – but stated more strongly in his own voice as a leader and composer – a bold jazz vision that makes us miss his talents even more strongly than before! The group here is the stuff of legends – with Dolphy on alto, bass clarinet, and flute – plus Don Friedman on piano, Julian Priester on trombone, Ron Carter or Art Davis on bass, and Max Roach on drums, tympani, and vibes!

Really nice work from a range of different Japanese TV series – material that spans a relatively large stretch of time, and comes together in a really cool blend of styles! The first two CDs features 51 tracks from the late 60s – mostly shorter cues and musical bits that have all sorts of unusual sonic touches – including some of those unusual uses of instrumentation that you might find in some of the Toho horror/sci-fi work of the time – served up with a mixture of sonic bursts and more melodic elements. CD3 features music that's more modern, and more melodic – but in a really beautiful way – television scoring that's tight and economical, but which really seems to do a lot in a small space – with an especially strong ear for a piano melody. CD4 is also more contemporary, but echoes some of the dramatic elements of the older music – balancing moods over the course of 25 tracks, often with full orchestrations, but occasionally using an approach that's more spare and striking. Sorry to not be able to tell you more, but the notes are all in Japanese – although the package also comes with lots of photos from the shows! CD

Easily the crowning moment of genius for the legendary Dave Brubeck Quartet – the moment when all things came together magically, and the group somehow elevated themselves to a whole new level in jazz! At the time of the set, Brubeck, Paul Desmond, and the rest had already been making plenty of waves with their creative yet swinging approaches to modern jazz – heard on a number of successful albums for Fantasy and Columbia in the 50s. But with this record, they really knocked one out of the park – blending Desmond's cool alto, Brubeck's unusual piano phrasing, Joe Morello's melodic drum work, and Eugene Wright's pulsating bass into a waltzing, almost modal groove that crossed over to many camps at the time! The classics "Take Five" and "Blue Rondo Ala Turk" were both hits on their own – but all titles are great, and include "Kathy's Waltz", "Strange Medow Lark", "Everybody's Jumpin", and "Pick Up Sticks".

✨✧ Bill CosbyBill Cosby Presents Badfoot Brown & The Bunions Bradford Funeral Marching Band (Sussex) ... LP
Sussex, 1972. Near Mint- ... $39.99
A great album of funky grooves put together by Bill Cosby, and featuring some of his funky friends from LA, like Stu Gardner, Gildo Mahones, Mel Brown, Willie Bobo, Monk Montgomery, and Paul Humphrey! The set's not to be confused with the similarly titled album on Uni – but is equally great – and it features 3 looooong funky tracks – "Abuse", "The Blues", and "Bunions" – all with a lot of silliness, plus two shorter ones, including "I Love You Camille", written for his wife to stop her getting mad at all of his philandering! LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout hole, light wear, an index label and a bit of pen on front, and some splitting in the bottom seam.)

✨✧ Roxy CossFuture Is Female ... CD
Posi tone, 2018. New Copy ... $11.99 17.98
Roxy Coss's second album as a leader for the Posi-Tone label – and it's her strongest to date, both by design and in performance! Where her Chasing The Unicorn album set up a whimsical sensibility, this one obliviously sets up a tone of strength and determination – undercurrents of all her work we've heard thus far, but are front-and-center thematically here. The titles are strident and topical, while the sound is timeless, with some thematic touches – like the almost foreboding intro to "Mr. President" that leads into marching drums, or the slyly easygoing swing that starts "Feminist AF" leading to some of the most energetic soloing by Roxy on the whole set – but she never casts off the neo-classic jazz she's always had such a strong voice for. Recorded in a single day with her excellent band including Alex Wintz, Miki Yamanaka, Rick Rosato and Jimmy Macbride, titles include "Nevertheless, She Persisted", "Little Did She Know", "She Needed A Hero, So That's What She Became", "Females Are Strong As Hell", "#MeToo","Nasty Women Grab Back" and "Ode To A Generation".

CrampsDate With Elvis ... LP
Big Beat (UK), 1986. Very Good+ ... $24.99
One of the best full lengths by The Cramps! By the time A Date With Elvis came out in the mid 80s, The Cramps had pretty much perfected their wild mix of ghoulish innuendo and truly devoted roots rock/garage revivalism. The sex club and monster movie imagery was for show, but their love of rootsy rumbles was no joke! The record is dedicated to the memory of Ricky Nelson and the dedication is not ironic. Great, ghoulish Cramps at their mid-decade peak. Oh, and by the way. . .Elvis couldn't have handled a date with Ivy. She'd have wrecked that boy. Includes "How Far Can I Go?", "The Hot Pearl Snatch", "People Ain't No Good", "What's Inside A Girl?", "Can Your Pussy Do The Dog?", "Kizmiaz", "Aloha From Hell", "Cornfed Dames" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

DeepPsychedelic Moods Of The Deep (remastered edition) ... CD
Cameo/Cicadelic, 1966. New Copy ... $6.99 14.98
The west coast had The Seeds, and the east coast had The Deep – a group known only for this one album, but a key garage psych group nonetheless! This record's a gem through and through – oddly (almost mistakenly) issued on the mostly-pop Cameo label in the mid 60s, but recorded with a fantastic studio technique that has lots of odd electronics and sound effects sneaking in alongside the fuzzy guitars and earthy vocals. The band were mostly a studio project between Rusy Evans and Mark Barkan of Freak Scene, and also features work by a young David Bromberg – and although they've only left this one record to their legacy, it's a heck of a great album to leave! Titles include "Color Dreams", "Pink Ether", "Turned On", "When Rain Is Black", "Psychedelic Moon", "Shadows On The Wall", "Trip #76", and "On Off Off On". 18 tracks in all. CD

DionysosLe Prince Croule (2020 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Return To Analog (Canada), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
A gem of a record from the French Canadian scene of the 70s – a musical wonderland that's surprisingly under-tapped, even though most of its records came out in close proximity to us in the US! Dionysos blend hard rock roots with a vibe that's all their own – often touched with some nice elements that come from the French lyrics of the tunes, sung in a way that's expressive but without ever sounding fake or over the top. As with their debut, the guitar work is excellent – strong leads and solos, with plenty of fuzz – on titles that include "Demain La Vie", "Le Prince Jardine", "Ballade Inquiete", "Terreur Et Joie", "Chanson De Courage Tot", and "Lever Du Prince".

✨✧ George DuningWorld Of Suzie Wong ... LP
RCA, 1960. Near Mint- ... $8.99
A strange film, but a great soundtrack! George Duning came up with an excellent batch of jazzy tracks for the film – and most of them swing hard and tightly, with strong jazzy solos, in a manner that's similar to some of Mancini's best scores of the late 50s. A number of tracks have odd "Eastern" touches in the melody – mostly through the use of percussion – and this makes the jazzy tracks even nicer, and gives them a strange feel that's similar to some of the "east meets jazz" albums on Verve during the 60s. Titles include "Aberdeen Caper", "Gwenny Lee", "At The Namcock", "Groove For Suzie", and "Hit The Road To Dreamland". Towards the end of the soundtrack, some cuts have a more orchestral feel, and this is in keeping with the change of mood in the film. LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono pressing with deep groove. Cover has a split bottom seam.)

✨✧ Brian EnoFilm Music 1976 to 2020 ... CD
Astralwerks, Late 70s/1980s/1990s. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98
Many years back, Brian Eno gave us a record called Music For Films – a set that came out during his initial run of Ambient recordings, showing us how strong his instrumental creations could be when and if applied to a cinematic mode! The tracks there were half imagined works for film – and those of us who loved Eno were always hoping that it would lead to more prominent scoring for the electrosonic genius. Turns out, that happened anyway – as this set of 17 tracks will attest – a rising Eno role in the film soundtrack world, served up on contributions from big productions and lesser-known gems. The set features work from films that include Heat, We Are As Gods, Trainspotting, Married To The Mob, Jubilee, Top Boy, Sebastiane, Hammerhead, Rams, Lovely Bones, Francis Bacon's Arena, and Cool World – a surprisingly rich array of material!

Griot GalaxyKins ... LP
Black & White/Third Man, 1981. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
An overlooked gem from the Detroit scene of the early 80s – played by a group who came after the generation of Tribe and Strata Records, but who went on to have some really slow-burning influence in their own sort of way! The music definitely has echoes of the loft and spiritual jazz scenes of the 70s – but the quintet also really open things up with some of the more flexible rhythms that were coming out of New York during the same period, and working with a slight touch of more ambitious structures – of the sort you might have heard on overseas labels recording American jazz musicians during the 80s. Reeds are at the core of the set – playec by the trio of Faruq Z Bey on tenor and alto, Anthony Holland on alto and soprano, and David McMurray on tenor, alto, soprano, and flute – given very creative energy by Tani Tabbal on drums, and Jaribu Shahid on both acoustic and electric bass. Titles include "Xy-Moch", "Zycron", "Zenelog Aintro", "Androgeny", "Kins", and "Xy Moch". LP, Vinyl record album
