VariousStrum & Thrum – American Jangle Underground 1983 to 1987 ... CD
Captured Tracks, Mid 80s. New Copy 2CDs ... $20.99
A great look at the farther reaches of the American underground scene in the mid 80s – years after punk and post-punk modes – and a portrait of a whole generation who rose up in their wake, but maybe made music that was something else entirely! 20 years hence, these guys might have been garage rock bands – and while they've got some of that spirit, they've also learned the sharper guitar edges of the late 70s/early 80s scene – but work towards songs that are sometimes more personal, and subjects that are more down to earth. At some level, these groups are America's version of the C86 generation – but more obscure, with less polish, as they were never likely to get the airplay or press of the British scene – which is what makes the music even more compelling, especially as some of these guys were very tied to local scenes. The package is great – with an enormous booklet of notes that's worth the price alone – in support of 28 tracks that include "The Meeting" by Pop Art, "Change" by Holiday, "When Do You Say Hello" by Great Plains, "Say Goodbye" by Riff Doctors, "Misery Me & You" by White Sisters, "Is It You" by The Darrows, "Seven Steps Down" by Salem 66, "Five O'Clock" by Three Hits, "She Collides With Me" by Sex Clark Five, "All My Friends" by Primitons, "All That Stuff" by The Windbreakers, and "Trusted Woods" by The Reverbs.

Luther AllisonLove Me Papa (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Black & Blue/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $13.99
Luther Allison recorded famously for Motown during the 70s – but here, he's in a much more lean, stripped-down mode – really stretching out on these extended tracks that let his superb guitar work do as much talking as his vocals! But Allison's also got a fantastic voice – one that borrows plenty of inflections from soul music, and which seems to push both the lyrics and his guitar work past the more familiar blues standards of the time – a really unique quality that's captured here perfectly by the sometimes-overlooked work of the mighty Black & Blue label from France. Luther plays harmonica on one track too – and titles include "It's Too Late", "Last Night", "Blues With A Feelin", "Love Me Papa", "I Feel So Good", and "Key To The Highway". CD features 5 more bonus tracks from the original sessions! CD

Magic SlimHighway Is My Home (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Black & Blue/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
At the time of this set, Magic Slim called Chicago his home – but the title may well be apt, as the set was recorded overseas in the Barclay Studios in Paris, at a time when Slim was hitting the highway to reach a wide global audience with his music! Despite that displacement, though, there's a very rooted vibe to the whole set – a searingly tight quartet performance that features Slim on guitar and vocals, Alabama Junior on second guitar, Nick Holt on bass, and Fred Below on drums – a rock-solid group who are captured here without any trappings at all – just a core focus on the sorts of sounds that Magic Slim would deliver to an intimate crowd back home. Titles include "I Love You Baby", "Living In My Neighborhood", "Highway Is My Home", "I'm Mad", "Tell Me Baby", "Man Or Mouse", and "Country Girl". CD features 3 more bonus tracks from the sessions!

Raw MaterialRaw Material (180 gram pressing – with bonus tracks) ... LP
Evolution/Sunbeam (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $38.99 42.98
The lasting classic from Raw Material – a great little record captured at the crossroads of psych and prog, with a wonderful sound that even moves past both of those styles! At one level, the album's a tripped-out batch of heavy rock tunes – complete with vocals, fuzzy guitar, and lots of long-haired attitude. At another level, though, the record's got lots of light jazzy flourishes, especially on some of the smaller instrumental cuts, which features mellow work on keyboards, vibes, flute, and percussion. These cuts really make the album great – as they have sort of a "Folk Funk Experience" sound, sophisticatedly funky, and nicely laidback. Titles include "Pear On An Apple Tree", "Time & Illusion", "I'd Be Delighted", "Future Recollections", and "Bobo's Party". 2LP pressing features lots of bonus tracks – 16 more numbers in all – including "Sympathy", "Badge", "Second Generation Woman", "Traveller Man", "Race With The Devil", and "Living In The Past".

Monty AlexanderLove You Madly – Live At Bubba's (2CD deluxe edition) ... CD
Resonance, 1982. New Copy 2 CDs ... $22.99 24.99
Unreleased live work from pianist Monty Alexander – recording here with a bit of extra percussion in his trio, which always seems to give his music a nice little kick! The date was captured at Bubba's, in Fort Lauderdale – a club that not only seemed to be a rare spot in Florida that gave musicians a chance to open up like some of the better clubs on the west coast – but one that also did a superb job of documenting some of its best performances over the years! That's definitely the case here – as Monty maybe sounds better than on most of his studio dates of the period – stretching out on nice long tracks, with help from Paul Berner on bass, Duffy Jackson on drums, and Robert Thomas Jr on percussion – the last of whom really keeps things interesting from a rhythmic perspective – in ways that definitely show up on Alexander's keyboard too. Titles include "Love You Madly", "Sweet Lady", "Eleuthra", "Reggae Later", "Arthur's Theme", "SKH", "Swamp Fire", "Fungii Mama", "Montevideo", and "Consider". CD

Gary BartzGary Bartz & NTU Troup – Live In Bremen 1975 ... CD
Made In Germany (Germany), 1975. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99 21.99
A fantastic live set from reedman Gary Bartz – captured here with his ultra-hip NTU group – who you might know from their classic albums on Milestone in the 70s! Gary's soaring out with a hell of a lot of pride and power right from the start – effortlessly spinning these long lines on soprano sax and alto, and bringing a bit of his voice into the mix too – working with a very sharp group that features Charles Mimms on both electric and acoustic piano, Curtis Robertson on bass, and Howard King on drums – players who follow Gary's lead wonderfully, and stretch out on some very long tracks that are even different than the spirit of the double-length live album that Bartz recorded around the same time. Titles include a smoking 24 minute take on "I've Known Rivers" – plus "Nation Time/Juju Man", "Rise/Celestial Blues/Sounding Song/Incident/Uhuru Sasa", "For The Love Of You", "Sweet Tooth", and "Peace & Love/Sifa Zote".

Brothers JohnsonBlam ... LP
A&M, 1978. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $8.99
Blam is right – an all-out batch of funky tracks from The Brothers Johnson – captured here right in the middle of their classic period with Quincy Jones! The Q's at the helm on production for the set, and the record's a great extension of their earlier efforts with the man – but a bit more Johnson-tuned (if we can say that in mixed company) – with the bass upfront on some of the best numbers, and a surprisingly strong male ballad approach on some of the gentler tunes. There's a slightly jazzy undercurrent at times, and tracks include "Rocket Countdown/Blastoff", "Ride-O-Rocket", "Streetwave", "Blam", "So You Won't Stay", "Ain't We Funkin Now", and "Mista Cool".

Don CherryCherry Jam ... CD
Gearbox (UK), 1965. New Copy ... $12.99 13.99
Never-issued work from Don Cherry – and a really key piece of the puzzle in the career of this legendary trumpeter! The recordings were done for Swedish Radio, with great fidelity – more than just live tracks captured in a club, and instead some really thoughtful material that marks an early pairing of Cherry's talents with the Swedish scene that he would soon call home! Don plays cornet, and the music is maybe a bit inside compared to some of his later Swedish experiments – but still pretty amazing, and a great bridge from his work with Ornette Coleman and Sonny Rollins. Players include Mogens Bollerup on tenor, Atli Bjorn on piano, Benny Nielsen on bass, and Simon Koppel on drums – and titles include the Cherry originals "Priceless", "Nigeria", and "The Ambassador From Greenland" – plus a reading of "You Took Advantage Of Me".

Dennis CoffeyOne Night At Moreys – 1968 ... CD
Omnivore, 1968. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
If there's one thing we know about funk legend Dennis Coffey, it's that we can never get enough of his early work – especially when he's working in his trio with the mighty Lyman Woodard on Hammond! The pair together are fantastic – and have this Detroit-bred version of jazz funk that's even grittier than anything coming out on Prestige Records in the 60s – a vibe that reflects the ties both musicians had to the local soul scene, and also hits at Coffey's great wave of records to come on Sussex in the 70s! But the groove here is even deeper and more open – captured live on long tracks that really take off – so that even if the trio is playing familiar songs, they come out completely unique in the hard-jamming style of the group. The mighty Melvin Davis is on drums – and tracks include very long takes on "Eleanor Rigby", "Cissy Strut", and the great Richard Evans' tune "Burning Spear" – plus "Groovin", "It's Your Thing/Union Station", "Big City Lights", "Mindbender", and "I'm A Midnight Mover" – all previously unreleased!

Nathan DavisNathan Davis With Georges Arvanitas Trio – Live in Paris – The ORTF Recordings 1966/67 (180 gram 3LP pressing) ... LP
Sam Records (France), Mid 60s. New Copy 3LP Gatefold ... About October 15, 2021 (delayed)
Amazing music by one of our favorite saxophone players of all time – captured here at the height of his 60s genius on the European scene! The tracks here have never been issued at all – but stand as a perfect complement to the killer MPS/Saba albums by Nathan Davis – and are served up with a similar blend of soulful hardbop and modernist edges – qualities that are already present in the fantastic phrasing of Davis on tenor and flute, pushed even further by the equally great work of French piano legend Georges Arvanitas! Although Arvanitas could be out when he wanted, he could also swing like the best of them – and his pairing with Davis here is perfect, and really brings out both the soul and edge in both players – especially in the company of George's fantastic rhythm duo of Charles Saudrais on drums and Jacky Samson on bass. The set's full of other surprises, too – including a bit of organ from Arvanitas, and an appearance by Jack Dieval – and the whole thing is beautifully recorded by French Radio. Tracks are all long – and include "Mid Evil Dance", "Blues For Southeast Asia", "The Hip Walk", "Rules Of Freedom", "A5", "The Thing", "Love Ye The Neighbor", "Nathalie's Dance", and "Yesterdays" in both flute and tenor versions.

DKV TrioLive In Wels & Chicago 1998 ... CD
Okka Disk, 1999. New Copy 2CD ... $10.99 19.99
Back in the 90s, the DKV trio were one of the strongest forces in the Chicago improvising scene – a great group that featured Ken Vandermark on reeds, Kent Kessler on bass, and Hamid Drake on drums – working together with a really boundless sense of energy! This set has the group making a great appearance at the Wels Music Festival in 1998 – stepping out in a way that's a bit different than some of their previous recordings. At the festival, the trio played their incredibly haunting version of Don Cherry's "Complete Communion", drawn out into an extended suite, with the addition of the group's "Memory Sketch", in homage to Cherry. That set is paired here with some material captured on the group's home turf in Chicago – featuring 3 long improvised tracks recorded at Fred Anderson's Velvet Lounge. The Chicago material comprises a second disc in this 2CD set, and it includes the titles "Blues For Tomorrow", "Open Door", and "Burning Sky". CD

Bill EvansLegendary Bill Evans Trio – The 1960 Birdland Sessions ... CD
Fresh Sound (Spain), 1960. Used ... $14.99
Rare live work from the Bill Evans Trio – captured at Birdland on several dates in 1960! Evans on piano, Scott LaFaro on bass and Paul Motian really cook on these numbers, in a gritty groove that's totally compelling. The track list for this CD is culled from 3 dates in 1960, including a couple of alternate versions of some of the tracks – preceding the more heralded Village Vanguard sessions from '61. Some of these recordings have appeared in altered form on past LPs, but they're assembled whole here, on CD for the first time ever! Tracks include "Autumn Leaves", " Our Delight", "Come Rain Or Come Shine", "Nardis", "Blue In Green", "All Of You", Speak Low" and more! CD

ExcitersSoul Motion – The Complete Bang, Shout, & RCA Recordings 1966 to 1969 ... CD
Bang/Shout/RCA/Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Incredible work by The Exciters – material we totally love to death, most of which is a lot harder-hitting than the group's earlier hits in the 60s! The package pulls together their post-UA recordings for the Bang, Shout, and RCA labels – the first to of which are represented by singles, the last by a full LP and some great extra material from 45s – all of which is really incredible stuff that moves way past any pop soul expectations you may have! Production is by Bert Berns on the non-RCA material, and Larry Banks on the RCA sides – and both producers bring an incredibly hip sound to the recordings, mixing the unique deep soul lead of Brenda Reid with some very groovy backings – arranged by Artie Butler, George Patterson, and Teacho Wiltshire, all of whom bring something unique to the mix. The force of these sides is amazing – almost a revolution in female soul, captured in the history of one group – and the booklet features very full notes on the girls, culled from interviews, and telling the story of their legendary years in the 60s. CD contains all of the legendary Caviar & Chitlins LP, plus lots of singles – 21 tracks that include "Take One Step I'll Take Two", "Soul Motion", "Number One", "A Little Bit Of Soap", "Number One", "You Don't Know What You're Missing", "Blowing Up My Mind", "Movin Too Slow", "Turn Me On", "A Year Ago", "You Got Me", "Always", "Fight That Feelin", "Give It All", and "Weddings Make Me Cry".

Alternative Fox (UK), 1977. New Copy ... $19.99
A live pairing of two giants of 70s jazz – keyboardist Herbie Hancock and bassist Jaco Pastorius – captured live in our fair city of Chicago at a small north side club! The bass of Pastorius seems to make for an even funkier sound than usual – and plenty of strong bass solos too – and the group is very lean, with just Benny Maupin on reeds and James Levi on drums – as the quartet stretch out in ways that really open up the tunes! The tracks are familiar numbers from the Herbie Hancock songbook, but the execution here is quite unique – and the set features versions of "Chameleon", "Hang Up Your Hang Ups", "It Remains To Be Seen", and "Maiden Voyage".

Lightnin HopkinsHis Blues ... CD
Ace (UK), 1940s/1950s/1960s. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99 22.99
A hugely sprawling 2CD collection of spanning the career of the incredible Lightnin Hopkins – from his most beloved years from the late 40s to late 50s – and a quite wonderful collection of numbers from the 60s after he had captured the hearts of the young, idealistic folk crowd of the era! Disc one focuses on the years 1947 to 1959 – wonderful, wonderful solo blues recordings that are justifiably revered to say the least. Titles include "Lightin's Boogie", "Coffee Blues", "Moanin Blues", "Highway Blues", "The Foot Race Is On", "Hopkin's Sky Hop", "Short-Haired Woman", the previously unissued "Ain't No Monkey Man" and many more. 26 tracks on disc one. Disc two covers the 60s, when Lightin was recording for Fire, Bluesville, Jewel and other labels. Nice picks from the later years, including some live numbers. Includes "Mojo Hand", "Ida Mae", "I Got Tired", "Sinner's Prayer", "Slavery Time", "Tom Moore Blues", "Up On Telegraph Avenue" and many more. CD

Ahmad JamalComplete Live At The Spotlite Club 1958 (Ahmad Jamal IV/Portfolio Of Ahmad Jamal plus singles) ... CD
Argo/Phoenix (Spain), 1958. Used ... $11.99
A great double-length set from Amad Jamal – material originally issued on his 4th trio album for Argo, plus the even longer Portrait Of Ahmad Jamal – one of the first 2LP sets ever issued by the label! The double CDs set features tracks all recorded at the Spotlite Club in Washington, DC on September 5 and 6, 1958 – live material, but captured with crystal-clear sound, so that the nuances of the Jamal trio come through beautifully! The collection is magical early work from Ahmad Jamal – a scintillating blend of piano, percussion, and bass – with a sound that was incredibly fresh at the time, and which still sounds pretty much so to our ears! The album crackles with imagination and rhythm – really hitting on all burners without burning itself out – and showing that even in these early days, Jamal's approach was one that could be as striking as it was mellow. Bass is by the incredible Israel Crosby, and drums are by Vernell Fournier – and the 2CD set features 25 live tracks that include "Taboo", "The Girl Next Door", "Should I", "Secret Love", "Squatty Roo", "Aki & Ukthay", "Our Delight", "Tater Pie", "Seleritus", "This Can't Be Love", "Ole Devil Moon", "Ivy", and "Let's Fall In Love". Also features 3 bonus tracks from singles – studio recordings of "Taking A Chance On Love", "Secret Love", and "Soft Winds". CD

BMG, Late 70s/1980s/Early 90s. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 19.98
Etta James on stage at the Montreux jazz festival – mostly captured in a lean, live setting that recalls some of her club work of previous decades, but with some of the more blues-based modes that Etta was bringing to her studio records in later years! A number of the tracks here are familiar – remakes of cuts from the Chess Records years, or Jones taking on work by other artists too – still graced with that wonderful vocal style that made her a strongly soulful talent from her young years onwards. The set features work from a number of different performances – a few from the late 70s, one from 1989, and a few more from the early 90s – the latter of which have backing from The Roots Band, while earlier sets have Etta working with some surprising guests – including Rick Wakeman on keyboards, David Newman on saxes, and Cash McCall on guitar. Titles include "Baby What You Want Me To Do", "Come To Mama", "Beware", "Damn Your Eyes", "Tell Mama", "Running & Hiding Blues", "Breaking Up Somebody's Home", "I Got The Will", "A Lover Is Forever", "I'd Rather Go Blind", "Something's Got A Hold On Me", and "At Last/Trust In Me/Sunday Kind Of Love". 2CD set features a full bonus disc – a complete 9 track show recorded at the Montreux Casino in 1975!

Desert Moon, 1976. Near Mint- ... $19.99
The only album ever cut by Norma Jenkins – a New Jersey singer with a surprisingly great ear for a deep soul groove! Norma's got a sound that's richer than most of her east coast contemporaries – a really robust approach that's almost more like some of the best southern soul singers of the period, and captured beautifully here, in ways that make us wonder why she never recorded more albums after this. The set's put together by producer George Kerr, right in the middle of a rich run of work for other artists in the 70s – and arrangements are by Bert Keyes and Andrew Smith – balancing equally between midtempo groovers, and some mellow tracks that are especially great. Titles include "Reachin' Out In Darkness", "Love Jones", "I Did It For Real", "Can You Imagine That", "I Fooled You", "It's All Over Now", and "You've Been Here Since Then". LP, Vinyl record album

Sunset Blvd, Early 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $20.99 21.99
If you only know Gladys Knight from her Motown classics, or her big hits of the early 70s, you'll find a huge amount to discover here – because right from the start, the lady and her group were really something special! The idea of a male/female vocal group was a bit unique in the early 60s – not completely uncommon, but never handled with the perfection of Gladys Knight & The Pips – as the mixture of Knight's richly soulful lead and the harmonies of the trio of male singers was incredible – captured very strongly by Harlem producer Bobby Robinson, with singles that appeared on his own Fire/Fury label, and Vee Jay as well! There have been other sets that bring together work from this time, but this might be the most complete we've ever seen – 40 tracks in all, with a few alternates, and a few solo tracks by The Pips as well – titles that include "Operator", "Come See About Me", "Go Away Stay Away", "Who Knows", "Walking In Circles", "Jungle Love", "Linda", "Darling", "One More Lonely Night", "Every Beat Of My Heart", "Room In Your Heart", "It Hurts So Bad", "Letter Full Of Tears", "The Devil In Me", "Daybreak", "Lovers Always Forgive", and "How Do You Say Goodbye".

Mainstream, 1962. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Mainstream repackaging of a wonderful set by Carmen McCrae – captured at San Francisco's Sugar Hill in 1962 – backed by a tight trio! Carmen is in sweet form here, very loose and and wise, and the group knows just how to fill out the sound. She scats loosely on the opening "Sunday", nearly hits a weep on "What Kind Of Fool I Am", and actually manages to breathe some life into "I Left My Heart In San Francisco" – no mean feat! The players include Norman Simmons on piano, Victor Sproles on bass, and Stu Martin on the kit. Other tracks include a playful "A Foggy Day", "Let There Be Love", "This Is All I Ask", "Thou Swell", "It Never Entered My My Mind" and "Make Someone Happy". LP, Vinyl record album

A beautiful live set from the legendary Thelonious Monk Quartet – that magical lineup you'll know from Monk's early 60s albums on Columbia Records, captured here in a concert performance that really opens up so many different currents of the group's sound! Monk is crucial, of course, on piano – but the group also moves with a perfect sense of timing for his music, thanks to the work of John Ore on bass and Frankie Dunlop on drums – a group who are then topped by some fantastic tenor work from the amazing Charlie Rouse – a hell of player at many levels, but one who always seemed to hit new heights with Monk! The double-length package really gives the group a lot of room to open up – and tracks move nicely between extended numbers and a few nice shorter bits – on titles that include "Just A Gigolo", "Well You Needn't", "Round Midnight", "Bemsha Swing", "Balu Bolivar Balues Are", "Crepuscule With Nellie", "Jackie-Ing", and "Blue Monk".

Charlie MonroeStarday Sessions ... CD
Starday/Gusto, 1972. New Copy ... $5.99 9.99
Charlie Monroe was part of the Monroe Brothers back at the start – but after he and brother Bill parted company in 1938, most people focused on the talents of the famous mandolin player, and forgot all about Charlie! Yet that other Monroe continued to make great music for many years – singing alongside his guitar with a nicely rough-edged vibe, as he does here in a series of almost-lost recordings for Starday Records from the early 70s – a label who captured Charlie in a nicely stripped-down way that feels far more postwar than you might expect! These tracks are nicely no-nonsense – just core bluegrass instrumentation on guitar, mandolin, and fiddle – with Charlie out in the lead on vocals that may not be as sweet as his brother, but still pack plenty of punch. Titles include "Would You", "It's Hard To Believe", "Find Em Fool Em & Leave Em Alone", "Walking With You In My Dreams", "I'm Going Away", "Shake My Mother's Hand For Me", "Child Of The King", and "Lord Build Me A Cabin".

Esther PhillipsBrand New Day – The Lenox, Atlantic, & Roulette Recordings (5CD set) ... CD
Atlantic/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1960s. New Copy 5CD ... $32.99 40.99
A fantastic collection of work from the legendary Esther Phillips – one of the most distinct voices in soul music, captured here during some key moments in her career! The box is huge – and begins with a full CD of tracks from Esther's initial years on Lenox Records – a label that helped her mature from "Little Esther Phillips", as a girl R&B singer in the 50s – to the much more mature artist she'd become on CTI/Kudu in the 70s! The set features 20 Lenox tracks – the first a stunning set of country soul material that makes Esther one of the first female artists to take on the work, followed by rare singles and a few duets with Big Al Downing. Next are 77 more tracks from Phillips' years at Atlantic Records – material that initially takes off from the Lenox material, then moves into a really great range of styles – sometimes jazzy and sophisticated, sometimes rootsy and bluesy, sometimes a bit more deep soul too – including some live material that really shows the power she could pack at the time. In between the Atlantic cuts, are also nestled 6 more numbers recorded for Roulette Records in 1969 – especially rare tracks that have a slightly different approach – and which are a key part of the set here, along with some other unreleased material. Stunning – the first time Esther's ever gotten such wonderful treatment – a big box set with detained notes too! CD

World Pacific, 1958. Very Good ... $16.99
5 years after they made their first set of groundbreaking Braziliany jazz tracks together, Bud Shank and Laurindo Almeida went back into the studio to record another great batch for Pacific Jazz. That second set of sessions is captured here in its entirety, and it features Shank and Almeida playing with the looser rhythm team of Gary Peacock and Chuck Flores on a number of short groovy tracks that clearly had a big influence on the bossa generation. Titles include "Frio y Color", "Sunset Baion", "Harlem Samba", "Blowing Wild", "Xana-Lyn", and "Serenade For Alto". LP, Vinyl record album

Universal (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 8CD Set ... $116.99 129.99
A fantastic collection of work from one of the most unique teams in British music during the 70s – Richard and Linda Thompson, first recording here in a romantic partnership, then together in the studio but separate in life – moving through a musical journey that is captured brilliantly in their songs! Thompson started out in Fairport Convention, cut a few great records on his own, but really seemed to hit his stride in the company of Linda – as you'll hear here in this comprehensive package that features every album the duo recorded together, plus 30 unreleased tracks, and demos and live material too! The package features the full albums I Want To See The Bright Lights Tonight, Hokey Pokey, Pour Down Like Silver, First Light, Sunnyvista, and Shoot Out The Light – plus a full CD of live material from 1975 and 1977, another CD of unreleased tracks – and unreleased bonus and live material added to each individual album.

Ben WebsterSaturday Night At The Montmartre (plus Midnight & Sunday Morning) (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Black Lion/Muzak (Japan), 1965. New Copy 2CDs ... $24.99
A really great package – one that brings together three different albums on the Black Lion label, all of which were recorded during the same live sessions at the Cafe Montmartre in Copenhagen! Ben Webster's tone is wonderful here – that mature, mellow sound that he brought to some of his standout live dates – and which is captured here in the kind of relaxed, soloist-focused setting that always makes 60s recordings from the Cafe Montmartre so great! The group is a familiar one for the house – Kenny Drew on piano, Nils Henning Orsted Pedersen on bass, and Alex Riel on drums – but it's clear that Ben's the main star, and steps out on the kind of tenor solos really set him apart from the rest – on a record that's also one of his best from the decade! 2CD set features 21 tracks in all – and titles include "I Can't Get Started", "Londonderry Air", "My Romance", "Misty", "That's All", "Yesterdays", "Perdido", "Teach Me Tonight", "Friskin The Frog", "Stormy Weather", and "Blues For Herluf".

Robinsongs (UK), 1970s/1980s. New Copy 4CD ... $29.99 38.99
A tremendous testament to one of the greatest soul groups of the 70s – one with a legacy that goes far beyond the music in this set, but which is really captured here during the golden years of The Whispers on record! The group has roots that start in the vocal group underground of the late 50s and 60s – and spent most of that second decade perfecting their harmonies and vocal interplay – to a point where they emerged in the early 70s with real hit-making power, thanks to their effortless interpretation of mellow tracks and ballads! Yet the group were not without a groove – and as the decade moved on, they also proved to be equally great at clubbier tracks too – able to pick up the pace while still delivering meaningful lyrics, a quality that really set them apart from so many others at the time. As the 80s move in, the group continue to grow and develop their sound – staying sophisticated, but down to earth too – at a level that maybe gave The Whispers a longer run of all-great records than so many artists of their generation. This well-done package does a wonderful job of picking out all the best cuts from the long run of recordings covered inside – 63 tracks that provide a perfect place to start, if you're just getting into the group – and which together will offer you up a fantastic package if you're a longtime fan.

VariousCameroon Garage Funk ... CD
Analog Africa (Germany), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $17.99 18.99
We're not sure we've ever heard the term "garage funk" before, but it certainly fits the vibe of this sweet little collection – even though all the tracks here were actually recorded in a church! Not that the music is religious, though – the funky sounds within are certainly secular – it's just that in the city of Yaounde in the 70s, the recording services in a local church were one of the few spots that a local up and coming act could lay down a few tracks for themselves – music that's captured here in a stunning assortment of rare tunes that mostly never saw the light of day at the time! Imagine some of the more popular sounds you know from West Africa in the 70s, then imagine them stripped down to the core – and captured with a rough-edged vibe that makes the music really leap from the grooves, even all these many years later. The approach results in sounds that you'd maybe hear if you stumbled upon a box of small label funky 45s in the back corner of a local market at the end of the 70s – but presented here with the detailed notes, full history, and spectacular sound that have made us love the Analog Africa label over the years. Titles include "Sie Tcheu" by Joseph Kamga, "Ma Wde Wa" by Los Camaroes, "Yondja" by Ndenga Andre Destin Et Les Golden Sounds, "Odylife" by Damas Swing Orchestra, "Quier Wapatcha" by Charles Lembe, "Africa Iyo" by Jean Pierre Djeukam, "Woman Be Fire" by Lucas Tala, "Mezek Me Mama" by Mballa Bony, and "Moni Ngan" by Willie Songue Et Les Showmen.

Now Again, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $49.99 55.98
An overdue look at the lost Lamp Records – a crucially important indie soul label on the Indy scene of the late 60s and early 70s – a company that was never as big as Chess or Motown, but did a similar job of documenting its city's musical scene! Indianapolis was always a very diverse city – and gave the world bigger funk and jazz luminaries like Wes Montgomery or Funk Inc – but like most cities of its size, Indy also sported a rich underground of great singers and bands who were really trying to make it big – all really great artists who were captured in deep detail by the Lamp Records label! Now Again/Stones Throw have given us a slight look at this scene in the past – most notably with their reissues of work by Ebony Rhythm Band – but this is the first really detailed dig into the label, with a huge amount of material that's only ever circulated on very rare original pressings. The work is a great mix of group soul, funky cuts, sweet harmony, and even a bit of gospel – and titles on this 2LP set include "Somebody Please" by The Vanguards, "You Made My Everything" by Words Of Wisdom Truth Revue, "Hum Bug" by Diplomatics, "I Didn't Know" by Funder Cooper, "Go To Work" by Revolution Compared To What, "Everybody Who Wants To Be Free" by Amnesty, "Can I Call You Baby" by The Pearls, "Take Me" by Fabulous Souls, "High On The Hill" by Squidd, "Soul Heart Transplant" by Ebony Rhythm Band, "See The Lord" by Mighty Indiana Travelers, "Huh" by Tony Black & Revolution Compared To What, "I'm Only Human" by Embers, "It Swells My Desire" by The PHDs, and "More Than I Can Stand" by Moonlighters.

Snarling sounds from the LA scene of the 60s – really raw material that represents the more sinister side of the Sunset Strip scene – all pulled from the vaults of superproducer Gary Paxton! Paxton was one of the few that really had his ear to the ground at the time – and as with his work in other modes, the presentation of these gritty, garagey gems is superb – captured with just the right sort of sneer to make the edge in the music come through – still the familiar combination of guitar, bass, drums, and keyboards – but handled in ways that are very different than the sound of a few years before! The set features a number of unissued tracks appearing here for the first time ever, plus other gems issued as 45s on small labels in LA – 24 tracks, presented with detailed notes, on titles that include "My Dream" by The Buddhas, "I Told You So" by The Avengers, "In The Heat Of The Night" by Mental Institution, "See If I Care" by Ken & The Fourth Dimension, "The Highly Successful Young Rupert White" by The Chocolate Tunnel, "Melodyland Loser" by The New Wing, "Our Love Should Last Forever" by The Whatt Four, "Grey Zone" by The Fog, "Guaranteed Love" by Limey & The Yanks, "Peddlers Of Hate" by Don Hinson, "I Need Love" by The New Wing, "I'll Never Let You Go" by Carl Walden & The Humans, "When It's Over" by The Avengers, "You Better Stop Your Messin Around" by The Whatt Four, "Leather Coated Cottage" by Limey & The Yanks, and "This Freedom I Have Found" by an Unknown Artist.

Dylan on the road from the late 70s to early 80s – bringing words and wisdom that are more spiritually inspired than anything he'd put out before – backed by some of the most soulful arrangements and players he's ever had behind him! Trouble No More is all unreleased material and focuses on the live shows in support of what's since been dubbed Dylan's "Christian Period" – which is essentially true – and has long been ripe for a reassessment. The gravelly nature of his voice in the later years, which kind of begin here, gives it a really passionate vibe, while the bluesy soul arrangements and gospel style backing singers provide such a lovely backdrop. All tracks are previously unreleased, and captured live from throughout the 1979-1981 tours – with a few that were never on any Dylan studio albums at all, making the live recordings all the more vital! 4LP set (which comes with the full set on 2CDs, too) includes versions of "Slow Train Coming", "Gotta Serve Somebody","I Believe In You", "When You Gonna Wake Up?", "Gonna Change My Way Of Feeling", "In The Garden", "Every Grain Of Sand", "Previous Angel", "Gonna Change My Way Of Thinking", "Saving Grace", the unheard and unreleased "Ain't Gonna Go To Hell For Anybody", "Ain't No Man Righteous" and "Blessed Is The Name".

The title track is reason alone to buy the record – a remake of The Normal's "Warm Leatherette", done here by Grace in a way that somehow gives the electro dance number a sense of soul! Most other tracks are remakes too – but in a really great way that follows in a playful Ze Records approach to all things older – loving the original essence, but revitalizing things for a newer wave of sound. Titles include versions of "The Hunter Gets Captured By The Game", "Love Is The Drug" and "Private Life" – plus "Pars", "Breakdown", and "Bullshit". LP, Vinyl record album

Curtis is captured here in a small club, with a tight band, spinning out these extended readings of some of his best tunes – both tracks he sang with The Impressions, and as a solo act – completely transformed here in the righteous energy of the setting! The vibe is similar to the classic Donny Hathaway Live album from the same time – save for the fact that this set is double-length, and maybe even more powerful as Curtis sings and plays guitar in a small group with additional guitar, bass, and drums – and some very hip percussion from Master Henry Gibson, of Pharoahs fame. Tracks include "We the People Who Are Darker Than Blue", "Stare and Stare", "Check Out Your Mind", "Stone Junkie", "I Plan To Stay A Believer", "If There's A Hell Below We're All Going To Go", "Mighty Mighty", and "The Makings Of You".

The mixture of cello and bass, without any piano, echoes some of Peterson's larger ensemble work – but the feel here is much more lively and improvised – a mixture of his freer energies and deeper concepts, which makes for one of his most dynamic records ever. Titles include "Ro", and a surprisingly great take on "Swing Low Sweet Chariot". LP, Vinyl record album

The format is familiar – but the liveness gives the album a slightly different feel than their studio sets – a sound that echoes out strongly along with thunderous applause from the crowds, who are themselves clearly situated in some very large arenas. And while the studio Weather Report albums are easily documents of the group's power themselves, it's something extra to hear the crowd going nuts for them here – cheering on Jaco Pastorius during a frenetic bass solo, roaring with approval at a Joe Zawinul keyboard bit, or clapping with enthusiasm after Wayne Shorter finishes a snakey solo. Tracks are all longish, and titles include "Scarlet Woman", "Black Market", "Birdland", "Thanks For The Memory", "8:30", "Brown Street", "In A Silent Way", and "Slang". LP, Vinyl record album

Incus/OTOroku (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 4LP & Cassette (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Four crucial albums from reed genius Evan Parker – brought together here in a limited, numbered set – with rare material on a bonus cassette, and a signed booklet of notes! First up is Saxophone Solos – completely unfettered solo saxophone work from Evan Parker – extremely intense, but not in an all-out blowing kind of way! Instead, Parker's got some incredible control on the valves here – playing with a frenetic sort of mode that's really incredible – freely improvising, but also really jamming too, with a dexterity that's simply amazing. That mix is what really set Parker apart from some of his contemporaries – a player who could be extremely sensitive at points, but also go head to head with some of the more fiercely-blown saxophonists of the European scene – and it's also a quality that's continued to make Parker so important as the decades move on. Titles include "Aerobatics 1", "Aerobatics 2", "Aerobatics 3", and "Aerobatics 4". Monoceros features Evan Parker, playing solo soprano sax – and recorded in a unique way that cuts his performance directly onto disc, which results in really stunning sound! The textures of Parker's music here are wonderful – bold notes mixed with more obscure sonic statements – all beautifully captured by the recording style, which features a solo microphone in the space of a room – so that the resonances of the reed lines are also reflected as they flow out into three dimensions. And unlike some other Parker material of this nature, the whole thing is very spontaneous and soulful – never too dry or academic, and much more with the vibrancy of Steve Lacy in a similar setting. Six Of One is another album of soprano sax – used exclusively by Evan Parker on the six improvised tracks on the set – each one very different than the other, and really showing the diversity and variation that Parker can bring to a performance! Often, the sound is very dense – tones and notes flowing effortlessly on top of one another – but clearly with this ear for sounds that often go beyond music, and a command of the instrument that rivals that of Steve Lacy in a similar setting – almost as if the record is Evan Parker's way of trying to claim a soprano saxophone title in the world of improvised music! The Snake Decides is an insanely wonderful piece of work from saxophonist Evan Parker – and maybe the record that will really have you deciding that Parker's a genius! The set is all solo soprano sax, recorded live in St Paul's church in Oxford – which creates this really rich sense of sound – but unlike other soprano solo records of this nature, the style is incredibly energetic and freewheeling – the sorts of long-spun, heavily blown lines you'd usually hear from a tenorist – and which really have us amazed at Parker's creativity, dexterity, and just all-out wind power too! The record might well be noteworthy for Evan's sense of breathing alone – as the music never seems to stop, as notes flow effortlessly from his fingertips – but there are sonic qualities that really send the album home, and which show why Parker was one of the greatest British improvising talents of the 80s. Titles include "The Snake Decides", "Buriden's Ass", "Haine's Last Tape", and "Leipzig Folly". Cassette features 10 tracks, all different "Aerobatics" recordings – done by Parker in the FMP studios in 1974! LP, Vinyl record album

French bassist Henri Texier has given us some really amazing music over the decades – but this rare gem from the late 70s may be one of his grooviest records overall – and has this criss-crossing of styles that's really fantastic! Texier doesn't just play acoustic bass, but also electric, percussion, and even a bit of oud – which he uses to create this cool global jazz sound, but in a way that's very unique – partly because a number of the tracks have wordless vocals from Henri, kind of floating over the top and really bringing a sense of majesty to the music! If you love Texier's work on acoustic bass, don't worry – as the record also still features plenty of superb work on that instrument too, really captured here with a strong yet subtle sonic quality. Titles include "L'Elephant", "Quand Le Blues S'En Ira", "Les La Bas", "Angele", "Mr Donald Cerise", "L'Ultime Danse", and "Varech". LP, Vinyl record album

We're not sure we've ever heard the term "garage funk" before, but it certainly fits the vibe of this sweet little collection – even though all the tracks here were actually recorded in a church! Not that the music is religious, though – the funky sounds within are certainly secular – it's just that in the city of Yaounde in the 70s, the recording services in a local church were one of the few spots that a local up and coming act could lay down a few tracks for themselves – music that's captured here in a stunning assortment of rare tunes that mostly never saw the light of day at the time! Imagine some of the more popular sounds you know from West Africa in the 70s, then imagine them stripped down to the core – and captured with a rough-edged vibe that makes the music really leap from the grooves, even all these many years later. The approach results in sounds that you'd maybe hear if you stumbled upon a box of small label funky 45s in the back corner of a local market at the end of the 70s – but presented here with the detailed notes, full history, and spectacular sound that have made us love the Analog Africa label over the years. Titles include "Sie Tcheu" by Joseph Kamga, "Ma Wde Wa" by Los Camaroes, "Yondja" by Ndenga Andre Destin Et Les Golden Sounds, "Odylife" by Damas Swing Orchestra, "Quier Wapatcha" by Charles Lembe, "Africa Iyo" by Jean Pierre Djeukam, "Woman Be Fire" by Lucas Tala, "Mezek Me Mama" by Mballa Bony, and "Moni Ngan" by Willie Songue Et Les Showmen. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Lee MorganComplete Live At The Lighthouse (8CD set) ... CD
Blue Note, 1970. New Copy 8CD ... Out Of Stock
An amazing package – and a dream come true for all of us at Dusty Groove – as the set features a ton of never-issued material from one of our favorite albums ever, by one of our favorite trumpet players of all time! Lee Morgan was really on a run when he stepped into the Lighthouse club in July of 1970 – soaring with a new sense of spirit that was captured on his final records before his too-early death – set loose here in a live setting that has Morgan and the group bristling with a new sort imagination on all sorts of extended performances! The Lighthouse was the home of cool jazz performances back in the 50s – but here, the locale is completely transformed – thanks to work from Lee on trumpet, Harold Mabern on piano, Jymie Merritt on electric bass, Mickey Roker on drums, and the great Bennie Maupin on tenor, flute, and bass clarinet – all rolling out with energy that's a lot more Strata East than Blue Note! The original 2LP set was expanded to a 3CD version in the 90s – but this massive collection brings together all the tremendous work from the performances – all of it completely essential, thanks to the sense of variety and inventiveness on the long solos that make up the tracks. Titles include versions of "Speedball", "Yunjana", "I Remember Britt", "Absolutions", "Something Like This", "The Beehive", "Neophilia", "Pyeote", "Aon", "416 East 10th Street", "Nommo", and the coolest version of "Sidewinder" you'll ever hope to hear. Newly remastered – with over four hours of never-heard music! CD

✨✧ VariousLocal Customs – Downriver Revival (CD & DVD) ... CD
Numero, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy CD & DVD ... Out Of Stock
One of the coolest collections ever put out by The Numero Group – and that's saying a lot, given the hipness of the label! Downriver Revival chronicles the story of a unique studio in Michigan – Double U Sound, a custom recording spot that captured a wonderful range of soul, funk, gospel, and other sounds from the local community – beautifully presented here in a full CD, plus a bonus DVD that features the near-complete 200 song archive of the studio! The DVD's really unique – so we'll talk about it first: Done with an interactive menu that lets you literally comb through the boxes of tapes in the Double U vault – selecting each reel recorded by the studio, and sampling the rich array of wonderful sounds from this untapped Michigan scene – a huge amount of music, far more than you'd ever find on a CD compilation. The DVD also features a documentary on the studio and Downriver Revial project – and that alone would be worth the price of admission – but the CD then features 24 key numbers pulled from the vaults – tracks that were either issued on rare 45s, or never issued at all – and which represent a wonderful array of soulful sounds that definitely lives up to the Numero standard! Titles include "There's A Light" by Shirley Ann Lee, "Take Care Of Us" by The Revelations, "Untitled Jam" by Bobby Cook & The Explosions, "Foot Stumping (alt)" by Organics, "While You Were Gone" by Combinations, "Heaven" by Deliverance Echoes, "Untitled" by Burgess Band, "Round N Round" by Junior Mays Group, and "Walk With Me" by Calvin Cooke.

✨✧ VariousTeen Expo – The Cleopatra Label ... CD
Numero, 1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great little look not just at a small indie label of the 60s – but also that decade's larger underground music scene – served up here on a set of recordings done for the tiny Cleopatra label in New Jersey! There's definitely lots of those "wanna be hitmaker" cuts that can make a tiny label so great – but Cleopatra also had a great ear for talents who ran around the farther range of pop as well – cool female singers with a nice slinky sound, or male artists who might have been going for deeper styles that wouldn't really flourish more strongly until a few years later in the mainstream – all captured with surprising care and taste by label head Tommy Falcone! As with the best of the other Numero sets like this, the story behind the label is as great as the music itself – quite compelling, given that Falcone and most of his artists were just a stone's throw away from New York – but often a world away, given the gap between mainstream fame and indie obscurity. The set features 26 tracks in all – and includes some by The Inmates, probably the biggest act to come from Falcone's studios – plus Bernadette Carroll, The Tabbys, Dick Hunter, Vickie & The Van Dykes, The Ovations, Centuries, Hallmarks, Johnny Silvio, Jimmy Davis, Tommy Manno, Eugene Viscione, and The Shandillons.

✨✧ Billy WalkerWhirlpool – Gonna Shake This Shack Tonight ... CD
Columbia/Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The best side of the overlooked Billy Walker – his more rocking, hard-twanging numbers recorded for Columbia Records – all done at a time when the label was hitting big with other artists, even though Walker never fully got his due! Billy's maybe best known for a few western-themed hits, but there's few of those here – and more of the numbers fall into the great crossover between hillbilly and early rock that was bubbling up in the second half of the 50s – captured well here by Columbia producer Don Law, plus some work by Lee Gillette on a few of Walker's early singles for Capitol. Titles include "Fifteen Hugs Past Midnight", "Whirlpool", "Mexican Joe", "It's Doggone Tough On Me", "Little Baggy Britches", "Headin For Heartaches", "So Far", "I've Got Leavin On My Mind", "A Woman Like You", "You Didn't Try & You Didn't Care", "Love's Got A Hold On Me", and "Throw Me Out". 30 tracks in all – and a great set of notes!
