✨✧ Cat AndersonEllingtonia (ALA pressing) ... LP
ALA, 1959. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Quite an obscure date from trumpeter Cat Anderson – done for the tiny Wynne label in 1959, and in a great small group approximation of the Duke Ellington spirit! Anderson's trumpet is set nicely in a very hip little group – with players who include Ray Nance on violin, Quentin Jackson on trombone, Budd Johnson on tenor sax, Rudy Powell on alto, Leroy Lovett on piano, Jimmy Woode on bass, and Sam Woodyard on drums. The tracks are mostly Ellington standards, but are often done with a looser sort of feel than familiar takes – more small combo and open, in a way that really makes us appreciate Cat's skills for putting the set together. Titles include "Like Dig", "Chelsea Bridge", "The Mexican Bandit", "Lovelinnessence", "Between Some Place Goin No Place", and "A Flower Is A Lovesome Thing". LP, Vinyl record album

One of those very cool groups who were recorded by RCA, the left to the winds of fate in the early 70s – even though they've got some pretty great chops here! The quintet are from Canada, but work here with Numbus 9 production in Chicago – on titles that include "We're All In This Together", "Blank Space", "The Pigeon Song", "Burly Shirley", "Light Of Love", "Looking Through A Glass Darkly", and "I'm Gonna Highjack A Plane To Cuba".

Cat StevensIzitso ... CD
A&M, 1977. Used ... $11.99
Cat Stevens' most soulful moment! Long before he changed his name – and started setting his sights on Salman Rushdie – Cat Stevens decided to atone for the wrongdoings of previous A&M albums with this album! The record still contains a number of Cat's soporific folksy numbers – but it's also got an early instrumental electro track that became an instant hip hop classic! The tune is "Was Dog A Doughnut" – and while the title may signify Stevens' metaphysical crisis at the time, he was at least of sound mind enough not to sing on the track, thus preserving linn-drum groove for posterity!

✨✧ Black Cat MysteryBlack Cat Mystery Vol 3 – February to December 1953 – Issues 42-47 (hardcover) ... Book
PS Artbooks (UK), 1953. New Copy Book ... Out Of Stock
Some of the coolest horror comics of the 50s – the legendary Black Cat Mystery from Harvey Publications! Harvey was maybe only second to EC in terms of gore and gritty story content – and these issues are awash in great work from the pre-code years of horror comics – the kind of unbridled, unregulated writing and artwork that left plenty of kids shivering under their covers in the postwar years! The stories can be incredibly creepy at times – often without any sort of happy ending or redemptive plot twist – and the artwork is filled with ghouls, demons, and other supernatural forces – all presented here in great color reproductions of the original valuable comics. This volume features artwork by Joe Certa, Al Eadeh, Don Perlin, Rocco Mastroserio, Bob Powell, Warren Kremer, Manny Stallman, Howard Nostrand, Lee Elias, and others – and stories include "Devil Drums", "My Husband The Cat", "Eternity", "What Was The Discovery", "Insomnia", "Disc Jockey", and more. 256 pages, full color, and hardcover.

Hiroshi Baba (aka Jun Fukamachi)Hiroshi Baba Works – Wolf Guy Enraged Wolfman/Monster Cat Turkish Bath (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Cinema Kan (Japan), 1975. New Copy 2CD ... $43.99
Really cool sounds from 70s Japan – music scored by Jun Fukamachi working under an assumed name, and maybe some of his wildest music ever! The notes here are all in Japanese, so we don't have much in the way of details – but we can say that CD1 features loads and loads of funky tracks – this Wolf Guy must have been one groovy cat – and overall, there's a very strong crime/cop feel to the whole thing – tight drums, riffing guitar, and plenty of sweet keyboards too! CD2 is a bit different, but still has some funky moments too – mixed with others that are more electric, and almost have more Italo horror scoring at times, especially in the moody elements that come from the keyboards! Together, the whole thing is amazing – a stunning sonic journey with a very distinct 70s cinematic feel – 45 tracks in all. CD

A really unique record from Norma Tanega – a singer with roots in folk, but who works here in a mode that's very much her own! Norma sings and plays acoustic guitar as pictured on the cover – but the song styles and production are often very different than you might expect – slightly psychedelic at times, especially on the more love-oriented lyrics – and given some unusual arrangements by Herb Bernstein, working here under Bob Crew – who uses subtle elements to expand things around the edges, without getting in Tanega's way – so that there's a trippy quality to the songs that really fits the naivete of the lyrics. Titles include "You're Dead", "Walkin My Cat Named Dog", "A Street That Rhymes At 6am", "I'm Dreamin A Dream", "What Are We Craving", "No Stranger Am I", and "Hey Girl". CD

Dionne WarwickTrack Of The Cat ... LP
Warner, 1975. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A wonderful album from Dionne Warwick – probably her greatest record after the early years! The session was recorded with production by Thom Bell at Sigma Sound in Philly – and the style is a sweet blend of Philly modes, from fragile ballads to midtempo groovers, all done in a warm and intimate style that's never cloying, and which really gets at the depth of Dionne's soulful style. The record's one of those that you might have passed by for years, but which if you heard it playing at someone's house, you'd say "Dang! What the heck is that?" Great all the way through, and with tracks that include "Track Of The Cat", "His House & Me", "Once You Hit The Road", "This Is Love", and "Love Me One More Time". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bobby CaldwellCat In The Hat ... CD
Clouds/Sin-Drome, 1980. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest moments ever from Bobby Caldwell – a special little album that occupies it's own place between genres – a touch of soul, the warmth of jazz, and a delivery that really helped Caldwell reach out to some big new audiences at the time! There's a cool, compressed feel to the record – but a quality that's still quite personal and never too slick – that rare balance that only a few of Bobby's contemporaries could ever match – and which is really hammered home here by the production and great songwriting. Instrumentation uses a warm blend of acoustic and electric elements that offset the vocals nicely – and titles include "Coming Down From Love", "Wrong Or Right", "You Promised Me", "I Don't Want To Lose Your Love", and "Open Your Eyes".

Vertigo/Cherry Red (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 6CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Seminal sounds from trumpeter Ian Carr and his Nucleus group of the early 70s – maybe one of the few jazz rock groups that was ever able to work with a fair bit of jazz in their sound! Unlike his contemporaries, who often started in rock first, then added some horns – Carr was already coming off an important 60s legacy, co-leading a group with tenorist Don Rendell – so the vibe here is like an extension of that very rhythmic, very tonal modern work – but with the addition of electrified instrumentation – thanks to the guitar work of Chris Spedding and keyboards of Karl Jenkins – who plays some fantastic electric lines throughout! The vibe is maybe a bit in the territory of early 70s electric work by Miles Davis and Donald Byrd (pre-Mizell for the latter) – but there's maybe a farther-reaching concept at play on many of the records, at a level that always helped the group cross over to the prog crowd, and move beyond just a straight jazz audience. Other key players include Brian Smith on tenor and soprano saxes – a really fantastic part of the lineup – plus Jeff Clyne on bass and John Marshall on drums – and as the albums move along a bit, the lineup shifts slightly, and also opens up to guests who include Kenny Wheeler and Harry Beckett on trumpets, Tony Levin on drums, and Norma Winstone on voice. And although some of the albums have been reissued before, this is the first set to really dive in completely – and bring together material from the Vertigo Records releases that include Elastic Rock, We'll Talk About It Later, Solar Plexus, Belladonna, Labyrinth, Roots, Under The Sun, Snakehips Etcetera, and Alley Cat.

Delta (Germany), 1981. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An obscure later album by Jimmy Smith – but one that continues the trend of tighter jazz funk that he began in the 70s! The album's a tight studio session with Jimmy on the "Wersi Saturn W3T" organ, plus guitar by Howard Roberts and Dennis Budimir, piano by Ronnie Foster, trumpet by Oscar Brashear, and percussion by Paulinho Da Costa. The tracks run from straighter soul jazz organ numbers to more pumped-up ones that feel like 70s soundtrack work by Lalo Schifrin – no surprise, since Schifrin contributed 5 tracks to the set. Titles include "Wersi Time", "Free Ride", "The Big Brawl", and "The Cat Strikes Again". CD

The format here follows some of the other collections on Stag O Lee – a nicely rough-n-ready sound, pulled from 45s from back in the day – and there's a heck of a lot more sounds and styles here than just the blues hinted at by the title! 32 tracks in all – with titles that include "Dead" by The Poets, "My Isabella" by Danny Cobb, "Castanet Senorita" by Ray Johnson, "My Love Is Coming Down" by Kenny Martin, "Come On Home" by George Allen, "Misery" by Barrett Strong, "Pneumonia" by Joe Tex, "Talkin Bout Me" by Moose John, "How Much Land" by Frank Minion, "Mama Linda" by The Monitors, "Little Girl" by Sugar Boy Williams, "Hard Times" by Jackie Ross, "Hey Boy" by The Sterlings, "Every Whicha Kinda Way" by Earl King, and "Going Back Where I Belong" by Sugar Pie Desanto.

Finders Keepers (UK), 1974. New Copy (pic cover)... Out Of Stock
"Black Cat" is a groovy little tune from Turkish rocker Durul Gence – maybe slightly more Anglo-styled than music from some of his contemporaries, but in a really great way! Lyrics are in English, and the tune's got this great groove that mixes acoustic guitar and fuzz with plenty of dark corners around the edges – and "Boo Song" maybe feels even more British overall, with this use of acoustic guitar amidst more soaring arrangements – which, with Durul's vocals, make the whole thing feel like some lost London gem from 1969! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Walerian plays alto, bass clarinet, soprano clarinet, and flute – sometimes in contrast to the mood of the others, especially Parker and Shipp, who have this fantastic way of revolving around each other in sonic space! The set is full of great moments and wonderful surprises – well worth the double length accorded to the album – and titles include "Magic World", "Thelonious Forever", Sir Denis", "Business With William", "Lesson II", and "Forest Council".

A real high point in Jimmy Smith's famous 60s run at Verve Records – a key collaboration with arranger Lalo Schfrin, who brings a great blend of jazz and soundtrack styles to Jimmy's famous groove on the Hammond! Lalo's backings are totally great – with touches of Latin and Brazilian that really open up the sound from some of Smith's other records – but in a way that still keeps the whole thing nicely on point as Jimmy soars away on his solos. The single "The Cat" was kind of a minor hit for Smith – and there's a lot of other nice tunes on the album, including "Theme From Joy House", "Chicago Serenade", "Delon's Blues", and "Main Title From Carpetbaggers".

Sweet Miami funk from the team of George "Chocolate" Perry and Clay Cropper – one of the rarest TK albums from the time, and also one of the funkiest too! The sound here is slightly polished, but never too much – a bit more in the sound of bigger Florida groups, like Miami, with a tight groove overall, but still enough sharper funky bits on the edges! George plays bass and Clay handles guitar and keyboards – and the vocals seem to be sung by both parties, often in that slightly-flanged Miami style of the time. Titles include "My Uncle Funky", "Sweet Mary", "Cream Is Rising To The Top", and "Two Different Worlds" – plus the excellent mellow soul track "Free (I'll Always Be)", which has a nice sweet sound in the same vein as work by Milton Wright.

The story of Guided By Voices – a group who labored in the American underground for quite some time before finding big fame – a story that makes the group's success far more interesting than most! The book details all the work and time that Robert Pollard put into getting the group going, and finding the right path forward – and Pollard cooperated heavily with the author, so that his voice is every bit as much a part of the book as that of James Greer. This softcover edition features a black and white photo section in the middle, and some great discographical details at the end – including solo and side projects too. 319 pages. Book

It's easy to get Beaver Fever when things sound this great – a wonderful modern soul take on the sound of Little Beaver from the 70s – serve up with plenty of warm tones, and a nicely matured version of Beaver's styles! All the bluesy bits from the start are gone, and some of the funkier edges have been smoothed down – but in their place are some great grooves that move along with a cool jazzy vibe that often makes great use of Beaver's guitar – a style that's almost like some of the more mature modern soul from up north, instead of the usual 70s Miami groove. A few tunes echo the earlier years – like the great remakes of "Party Times" and "Katie Pearl" – and other tracks include "Thank You For My Life", "Don't Get Tired Of Me", "I Feel Like Crying", and the groovy "Groove-On".

Little BeaverBlack Rhapsody ... CD
Cat/Solid (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $13.99
Incredible funky guitar – an all-instrumental gem from the legendary Little Beaver – quite different than his other vocal albums of the 70s, and a fair bit funkier too! The sound here is amazing – lots of snakey compressed guitar parts, nice wah wah moments, and a dope laidback groove that's similar to Shuggie Otis on his Inspiration Information album, but a little funkier too! Especially sweet are the sudden changes within the tunes – which find a killer groove, take a left turn or two, and then fall back into the groove nicely. Beaver wrote most of the cuts, and the track list includes "Hit Me With Funky Music", "Loosen Up", and "Tribute To Wes". But some of his best playing comes out on the covers, which have a nice laidback feel, in the best dope Little Beaver style – like "Never Can Say Goodbye", "Let's Stay Together", and "Summertime". Total perfection! CD

Cat/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $13.99
An excellent early album from the amazing Little Beaver – a set that's also probably one of his best ever – served up with some extra-dope guitar, and nice deep Miami soul production by Steve Alaimo! Beaver handled all the arrangements – which means that there's plenty of room for his great guitar to come to the forefront – and this album also features some of his great vocal work, set in a style that's a lot rawer than later releases – rooted a bit more in deep soul and blues, which fits nicely with the guitar. Titles include the single "Joey", plus the long "Katie Pearl", and a nice cover of "Two Steps from the Blues", which features his funky soul guitar on a nice solo – plus the tracks "What The Blues Is", "That's How It Is", "I'm Losin the Feelin", and "Give A Helping Hand".

A classic Miami funk groove! The track's got a great compressed drum machine sound – ala Shuggie Otis, but with a bit more of a kick. Beaver solos over the top in tripped-out guitar lines that ring out in a dope little style right over some party crowd noises that are just great! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Gwen McCraeMelody Of Life ... CD
Cat/Solid (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An underground gem from Gwen McCrae – and the record that first set the tone for her dancefloor classics for Atlantic in the 80s! The album has Gwen shaking off some of the southern soul of her roots – stretching the genre out to hit notes that are much more in tune with modern soul of the time – a warmly sophisticated approach that uses Gwen's vocals to best effect on a variety of adult themes, but which also kicks in some great midtempo and mellow grooves on the set. A perfect example of this is the album's sublime stepper "All This Love I'm Givin" – a track that works perfectly on the dancefloor, yet which also has a heck of a lot of deep soul too – and the rest of the album follows in a similarly sublime sort of groove. Other titles include "I Can Only Think Of You", "I Found A Love", "Maybe I'll Find Somebody New", "The Melody Of Life", and "The Joy". CD

Black Cat (Italy), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
That's a near-naked woman on the cover, and the set's a batch of rare tunes by soundtrack maestro Ennio Morricone – all from films and scores with a woman at the center! The music is a mix of some of the best slinky, sexy Morricone modes of the late 60s, with some of the moodier, spookier sounds he opened up in the 70s – and as you might expect from the setting, the lovely Edda Dell'Orso is a part of many tracks – providing wordless vocals that are really beautiful, and which have come to be one of the strongest Morricone trademarks over the years. The set features 16 tracks in all – from films that include Verushka, La Donna Invisible, Salalom, Scusi Faccio L'Amore, Le Foto Proibite, Trio Infernale, and Maddalena – all Mondo Morricone classics!

Cat/Solid (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A funky classic from Little Beaver – one of the best albums to come out of the Miami scene of the mid 70s! Little Beaver lays down some righteous guitar and heavy vocals over a cool spare backing groove on this one. It's a party, alright, but it's got the feel of the smoldering, latenight hours of it – after everyone's feeling real good for a long while! The sound is sort of a mix between slow cooking raw soul and heavier stripped down funk outings. One of Little Beaver's best – and one of our all time favorites! Titles include "I Can Dig It Baby", "Money Vibrations", "Let The Good Times Roll", and "Party Down (parts 1 & 2)". CD

Buddy Ace & Al TNT BraggsBuddy Ace Meets Al TNT Braggs ... CD
Duke/Jasmine (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
A double-header of a set – one that brings together rare work from two great 50s singers on the Duke/Peacock label – both of whom get a fair bit of space in the collection! Buddy Ace was actually named James Land at the start, but was dubbed Buddy Ace after the death of Johnny Ace – one of the first big Duke records stars, and a key force in the early years of rock and roll. Buddy's style is maybe a bit warmer at times than Johnny, but he also gets all the fantastic Duke Records production that made Bobby Blue Bland so great at the start – core blues augmented with larger arrangements, and jazz currents that can make the music a lot more sophisticated than on other labels! There's definitely plenty of blues in the mix, including strong guitar leads on some tunes – and titles include "Screaming Please", "This Little Love Of Mine", "From These Roots", "It Can't Be True", What Can I Do", "Back Home", and "Won't You Reconsider". The set then moves onto a great batch of work from Al TNT Braggs – a singer who definitely earns the explosive part of his name – especially on the upbeat numbers that are equal parts R&B and early rock and roll! Al's got a very distinct, dexterous approach to the music – one that's also really pointing the way towards 60s soul – on titles that include "Chase Em Tom Cat", "A Little Bit Closer", "We Belong Together", "Easy Rock", "You're Something Else", and "Cigarettes & Coffee".

Ad LibsPresenting The Ad Libs (purple vinyl pressing) (2018 Black Friday Release) ... LP
ORG, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $23.99
A full vinyl release by The Ad Libs – a group known for their classic singles of the 60s, but one who never issued a full-length album of their own! This great little set more than corrects that fact – by bringing together 9 rare singles for the Blue Cat label, plus a few previously unissued tracks – tracks that never made it onto vinyl back in the 60s! The issued singles alone are great – a beautiful blend of one gal and four guy singers, handled with a style that's on the rougher edge of the New York style of soul at the time. Titles include "On The Corner", "Boy From New York City", "Appreciation", "Oo Wee Oo Gee", "Johnny My Boy", "The Slime", "Down Home Girl", "If She Wants Him", "He Ain't No Angel", "Nothing Worse Than Being Alone", "Kicked Around", and "I'm Just A Down Home Girl".

Really great later work from Mickey Baker – a guitarist who first rose to fame during the 50s years of R&B, but who just kept on maturing over the years, and really opened up a much stronger blues style in his music! Here, Mickey sings and plays guitar – the latter with a voice that's maybe even stronger than his own on the lyrics – in small combos that feature work from either Tiny Grimes or Jimmy Rodgers on guitar, plus some harmonica and guitar from Louis Myers too. Titles include "She's Dynamite", "Don't Try To Play Me For Your Clown", "My Play House", "Drucilla", "Hey Little Girl", "Blues After Hours", "In The Evening", "Sweety Cat", and "My Dog". CD features bonus tracks – "Didn't We Baby", "Battle Of Guitars", and "Sweety Cat (take 2)". CD

Billy BrunerBilly Bruner ... LP
Athens Of The North (UK), Early 80s. New Copy ... $22.99
Billy Bruner looks nice and relaxed on the cover – and his grooves are nice and relaxed, too – but maybe that's just how they make their music in Billy's hometown of Tulsa! The set's got a sweet blend of 80s soul and mellow boogie – never too over the top, and handled with a nice mix of 80s production styles, in a good balance between electric elements and some warmer modes at the core. Most cuts are nicely unpolished – diamonds in the rough that might have been hits, had they gotten commercial treatment – but which are maybe even better sounding in this approach. The package features a few unreleased tracks, and work by Billy that also includes cuts by T'Spoon and The Davis Family – on titles that include "If You Dance Tonite", "School Dance", "Amazing", "The Tulsa Song", "The Dream", "Sweetness", "Cat's Meow", and "Say Yeah".

James Burton & OthersCannonball Rag – Early Groups & Sessions ... CD
Jasmine (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $13.99
A massive look at the work of guitarist James Burton – a musician who only cut a few records under his own name, but who was hugely important for his session contributions to both rock and country music in the 50s and 60s! Burton's one of those guys for whom the term "picker" was coined – the kind of cat who could show up, guitar in hand, and bring something really special to a session – a strong guitar lead that almost seemed effortless, and which was often the final element to cement the strength of a hit record! This collection focuses on key Burton contributions to the work of a number of different artists, both country and rock – in a set of 35 tracks that includes work by James Wilson & The Jimmie Cats, Maylon Humphries, David Houston Bob Luman, Dale Hawkins, The Shadows, Ricky Nelson, Dorsey Burnette, Tommy Cassel, Bobby Lee Tramwell, The Green River Boys, and The Shacklefords – most of whom are featured here on a few tracks each, all with guitar by Burton.

Duke EllingtonDuke Ellington Live At The Newport Jazz Festival 1959 ... CD
EmArcy, 1959. Used ... $5.99
A rare slice of Duke Ellington at Newport in the 50s – recorded live at the festival in 1959, but unlike other sessions of the time, never issued on record! The set remained unissued until Duke's 90th birthday, and it's a great discovery that easily matches the strength of Ellington's larger live recordings for Columbia at the same time. As is usual for this type of outing, there's a number of shorter tracks that reprise Ellington favorites for the crowd – but those are offset by longer, more serious works that are deeply complex, the highlight of which is "Idiom 59", a great lost composition done especially for the Festival! The full performance runs for over an hour – with players that include Clark Terry, Cat Anderson, Harry Carney, and Johnny Hodges – and other tunes include "Cop Out", "Rockin In Rhythm", "Skin Deep", "Jam With Sam", "Perdido", and "Jones".

✨✧ Duke EllingtonEllington Indigos (Columbia Jazz Masterpieces) ... LP
Columbia, 1957. Sealed ... $9.99
One of Duke Ellington's best albums of the 50s – a well-conceived session of dark moody tracks that revisits a few old favorites, hits a few standards, and offers a new gem that's right up there with the classics! The "indigos" title is taken very seriously here – as the album's awash in blue tones and darker hues – a bit Kenton in inspiration, but carried off with a lot more intimacy and sense of soul throughout. The group by this point is completely mature – and old bandmates like Johnny Hodges on alto, Paul Gonsalves on tenor, Jimmy Hamilton on clarinet, Cat Anderson and Ray Nance on trumpets, and Jimmy Woode on bass all fit together perfectly under Ellington's direction. Titles include Duke's great "The Sky Fell Down", plus "Mood Indigo", "Autumn Leaves", "Tenderly", "Dancing In The Dark", "Where Or When", and "Solitude". LP, Vinyl record album

Maynard FergusonMaynard (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia/Wounded Bird, 1970s/1981. New Copy ... $6.99 12.98
A set of some the coolest material that the legendary trumpeter Maynard Ferguson cut throughout the 70s – from fiercely energetic, large combo takes on standards, to looser, more simmering styles of timeless jazz, to spacey jazz funk! Not to be confused with Ferguson's similarly titled early 60s set, this Maynard is a compilation of his creatively exploratory 70s years – on records like New Vintage, Live At Jimmy's, Carnival and the Bob James-produced Primal Scream – really showing the breadth of his astonishing range. Great stuff played with large groups and with Maynard at his most diverse. Includes "Airegin", "Stay Loose With Bruce", 'Round Midnight", "The Cheshire Cat Walk", "Chameleon", "Birdland", "Naima", "Got The Spirit" and more. This CD edition has 2 bonus tracks: the fun, funky "Rocky II Disco" and "Gabriel". CD

Manfredo FestBrazilian Dorian Dream ... CD
T&M/Far Out (UK), 1976. New Copy ... $9.99 16.99
A sublime little set – quite possibly the greatest album ever from Brazilian keyboardist Manfredo Fest! Manfredo first cut his teeth on the bossa scene of the 60s – but by the time of this rare indie session, he'd moved up to the US – and was working with sweet keyboards to really electrify his groove! The record's a wonderful blend of 70s Brazilian fusion modes and just a dash of American soul – and in addition to Manfredo's wonderful work on Fender Rhodes, the set also has these brilliant vocals from Roberta Davis – a singer who works wordlessly, using her voice as an instrument in this really cool way – sliding along with the grooves, and making the album sound unlike anything else we can think of. The overall feel is a bit like Joao Donato's excellent Quem E Quem album – and titles include "Jungle Cat", "Facing East", "Who Needs It", and "Brazilian Dorian Dream". CD

The best full-length set to date from Yukihiro Fukutomi – a stone solid batch of grooves that's made even better by a list of guest vocalists that include Lady Alma, Rich Medina, Ernesto, and Victor Davies! Fukutomi's really at the top of his game here – working in a warm style of house that shares a heck of a lot with the best sounds coming out of the New York scene at the moment – and which has a richly soulful quality that takes the music way beyond the dancefloor! There's a similar feel here to recent work from Louie Vega, crossed with a bit of the cosmic sense of the London scene – and tracks include "Equality (part 2)", "Peace", "All Over The World", "Cat & Mouse", "Love Is To Blame (Don Carlos contemporary house mix)", "Road To Nowhere", "The Tambour", and "Continuous Function". CD features 14 tracks in all – including bonus tracks "Peace (Dimitri From Paris Backtrackin radio)" and "Equality (Blackbeard radio edit)". CD

A fantastic testament to the ever-growing strengths of Gaslamp Killer – and a record that's not really instrumental hip hop, or just a loose collection of beats – but instead almost moves the producer into the territory of more complex soundtrack or sound library modes, yet still all with his crispy, funky legacy at the core! The record's got plenty of great guests – Amir Yaghmai, Mophono, Roberto Schilling, The Heliocentrics, and Miguel Atwood-Ferguson – each of whom bring their own flavors to the blend of styles – and the whole thing bristles with promise right from the very first beat – really restoring our faith in this sort of record, over the course of tracks that include "Blue Butterfly", "Malcolm's Library", "Blind Dog", "Heart Math", "Nullen Void", "Markets Of Marrakech", "Hooked On Classics", "The Cat's Meow", and "One Take Jake".

Prepare to discover your new favorite artist – a tremendously hip cat who never got his due – and who should be held as high on these shores as British talents like Nick Drake, Bert Jansch, or John Martyn! Like all of those three, Davy Graham is a complete original – a guy with an acoustic guitar, but light years beyond familiar folk – often using all these jazzy changes in his style, and mixing his own music with songs by Dylan, The Beatles, Muddy Waters, and even Art Blakey – but all in ways that are completely transformative, and which maybe use the familiar songs just as a way for Graham to show us how individual he can be – because even a song we know sounds nothing like the original. His guitar work is superb – full of all the fresh ideas, unusual phrasings, and special sounds that the best of his generation were bringing to acoustic music – and titles include "Lotus Blossom", "Down Along The Cove", "Stan's Guitar", "Bulgarian Dance", "Buhaina Chant", "I'm Ready", "Getting Better", "Hornpipe For Harpsichord Played Upon Guitar", and "Pretty Polly".

The record features folklore tales and story songs by Merle Travis, Merle Kilgore and other lesser known and less often recorded gems.

Like Sylvia, Regina James is a singer with a very sexy approach to 70s soul – not afraid to let her desire ooze out into the grooves, which are a really well-crafted batch of Miami rhythms handled by Clarence Reid – who also produced and wrote most of the songs in the set. And also like Sylvia, Regina may not be the best soul singer in the world, but she more than makes up for that with her personality – which comes through loud and clear in the album's very unique "Kitty Kat Pussy Cat Medley" – and on other tunes that include "Alfie", "Tribute To Music", "Primitive", and "Dancin In The Flames Of Love".

A great late 70s set from Bert Jansch – a set that's maybe a bit of a return to his roots, but which also really marks Jansch as a much stronger vocalist than he ever was in the early days! There's this confidence and maturity to the lyrics that's really great – Bert inflecting things with that voice that must have been one of the most unusual on the UK scene, even in the smaller folk rock world of his roots – and although the instrumentation is relatively lean, the tunes have a fullness and gentle sort of majesty that's very different than 60s Jansch in a similar mode. The whole thing's wonderful – maybe a bit overlooked in the year when punk was exploding – but proof that some of the more timeless artists of the generation were still turning out impeccable work. Titles include "Daybreak", "One To A Hundred", "Pretty Saro", "Doctor, Doctor", "3AM", "St Fiacre", "If You See My Love", "Poor Mouth", "Cat & Mouse", "Three Chord Trick", and "Lost Love".

Lord Invader & His Calypso GroupCalypso Travels (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Folkways, 1960. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 22.98
The last album ever recorded by Trinidad calypso legend Lord Invader – and a set that really sums up all the genius he brought to his too-short career! At a time when the music was really entering the mainstream in commercial ways, Invader keeps things very spare, stark, and basic here – reminding us that at the core, calypso was not only a really revolutionary musical style in the Caribbean – but also a way for under-represented cultures to really get a chance to speak out! Lord Invader does plenty of that here – mixing social commentary with a fair bit of wit, all while the percussion is going crazy at the core – on titles that include "Cat O Nine Tails", "Crisis In Arkansas", "Fidel Castro", "My Experience In The Reeperbahn", "Me One Alone", "As Long As It Born In My House", and "Steel Band War".

A really wild little record – quite experimental, and maybe in a mode that's impossible to describe in words! The set's part of that great burst of creative Japanese music at the start of the 70s – but is even more revolutionary than most – as it seems to mix artful passages with sonic experiments – some that combine traditional and contemporary instruments, others that merge avant voice and percussion, and a few numbers recorded in different spots – a cave, train tracks, and an "old people" festival! There's definitely some songs in the mix too – but they come slowly, and pepper the album in a nice way alongside the more experimental passages – really building up with freaky fuzzy guitar rock at the end of side one, then lapsing into more experimental work by side two. The album's divided up into a "cat side" and "dog side" – great for you pet lovers too! LP, Vinyl record album

One of Henry Mancini's best soundtracks – made even better! The score for Mr. Lucky was a masterpiece of jazzy little themes – and it's always been one that we've loved way better than Peter Gunn or some of Mancini's other more famous work. Here, Mancini redoes that music with a west coast Latin feel – a cool blend of jazzy riffing and percussive rhythms – never as hard-hitting as other Latin work on RCA, which is part of the charm of the record. The rhythms are often a bit gentle, but step in nicely to give Mancini's music a nice little punch – and titles include "Mr Lucky Goes Latin", "Blue Mantilla", "Siesta", "The Sound Of Silver", "The Dancing Cat", and "Cow Bells & Coffee Beans".

Moondog, 1956. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
One of the best early albums from the legendary Moondog – a set that got wider circulation than his first few releases, and really helped expand his reach beyond New York City! Moondog's still at his simple best here – working in a blend of rhythmic percussion, stringed instruments, flute, and other rootsy instrumentation – all with echoes of Eastern styles, but served in a way that definitely has more of a touch of American exotica! All numbers are played by small groups – or even solo by Moondog – and any vocalizations take on almost an instrumental feel – sliding in alongside sound effects, animal noises, and other obscure utterings. The album's almost the art world equivalent of Martin Denny – but has a lot more depth than easy kitsch – and is still tremendously powerful stuff all these years later! Titles include "Caribea", "Big Cat", "Frog Bog", "To A Sea Horse", "Surf Session" and "Trees Against The Sky".

Gerry Mulligan & Ben WebsterGerry Mulligan Meets Ben Webster ... CD
Verve, 1959. Used ... $2.99
Mulligan always sounds great next to a tenor – especially in the Verve series that has him teamed up with players like Johnny Hodges, Paul Desmond, or Stan Getz. This release, cut with Ben Webster upfront, is one of the best of that series – and features the pair blowing easily and soulfully on some long tracks with rhythm by Jimmy Rowles, Leroy Vinnegar, and Mel Lewis. Titles include "Go Home", "The Cat Walk", "Sunday", "Who's Got Rhythm", and "Tell Me When". CD

Andrew Oldham OrchestraEast Meets West – The Famous Hits Of The Beach Boys/The Famous Hits Of the Four Seasons ... LP
Parrot, 1964. Near Mint- ... $19.99
American 60s hits, completely recast by the orchestra of Andrew Oldham – a cat you might know best as the manager of the Rolling Stones, but who also has a great way with a groove in the studio! The style is bouncy Brit pop of the 60s – which has these American songs really coming across in a cool and different sort of way – arranged to perfection by David Whittaker, who may well be the real leading talent of the set – able to beautifully balance electric basslines with larger orchestrations, and still keep things all tight and compact! There's some weird vocals buried in the mix, but most songs are instrumental – and titles include "Wendy", "Warmth Of The Sun", "Girls On The Beach", "Don't Worry Baby", "Big Man In Town", "Ronnie", "Save It For Me", and "Dawn Go Away". CD also features mono and stereo mixes of the whole album – and a version of the "Theme From The Dick Van Dyke Show". LP, Vinyl record album

William OnyeaborWho Is William Onyeabor – World Psychedelic Classics 5 ... CD
Luaka Bop, Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... $8.99
Grooves unlike anything else you've ever heard before – the rightly legendary musical legacy of William Onyeabor, one of the most enigmatic talents to come from the African scene of the 70s! The work here is all plenty darn funky, but it's also very different from familiar Afro Funk too – as the instrumentation is heavy on keyboards, handled by William with incredible dexterity – and spun out in these soaring lines that bristle with righteous touches that really support the message of his tunes! The vibe mixes in some electro elements with long-drawn rhythms – and the vocals often step aside for lots of keyboard and rhythm interplay, then come in to send things home at just the right moment. Onyeabor's been a pretty elusive cat over the years, and it's taken Luaka Bop quite some time to put this collection together – amazing work that may well make the album one of the most important to ever come from the label – and the first introduction to the non-African world of Onyeabor's incredible sounds. Titles include "Body & Soul", "Atomic Bomb", "Something You'll Never Forget", "Why Go To War", "Love Is Blind", "Fantastic Man", and "Let's Fall In Love". CD

✨✧ Sun Ra & OthersRocket Ship Rock ... LP
Norton, 1960s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Wild and wooly Rocket Ship Rock from Sun Ra and his Arkestra – featuring shout blues vocalist Yochanan – often billed as "the man from outer space" and a cat who could give Screamin Jay Hawkins a run for his money in the excitable oddball category – jumping 60s r&b with an interstellar theme, freaked out jazz, and unhinged genius from the Saturn vaults! Rocket Ship Rock features material that's the next stratospheric step from the early doo wop era recordings, with Yochanan coming unhinged without ever jettisoning his considerable charisma, on most of the numbers – including rare Saturn tracks, unissued and alternate and rehearsal takes – plus rare numbers other vocalists including Little Mack, Lacy Gibson and Ebah (both from the later 60s when Ra was going crazy for the Batman themes) and Don "Dino" Dean. Amazing spacey 60s soul & r&b with a wild eyed grit and the Arkestra in it's nicely gritty realm of the cosmos. Very well packaged by the folks at Norton, with nice liner notes, too. Titles include "Muck Muck", "Hot Skillet Momma", "Rocket Ship Rock", "The Sun Man Speaks", "Message To Earth Man" (#s 1& 2) with Yochanan, plus "Tell Her To Come On Home" feat Little Mack, "I Am Gonna Unmask The Batman" feat Lacy Gibson and an unissued version with Ebah, plus "Space Stroll" featuring Don "Dino" Dean.

Rolling StonesSticky Fingers (180 gram pressing – half-speed master) ... LP
Rolling Stones/Universal, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99 29.99
Landmark work from The Rolling Stones – and a set that may well stand alongside Exile On Main Street for capturing the group at their height! The record's got the Stones very much in their own space – years from just putting a UK spin on American blues – and instead, finding a way to take all their best influences, and fuse them into a nasty, gritty sound that's complete genius all the way through! Yet at the same time, the set also has them more comfortable with rootsy elements too – but returning to styles in ways that are very different than their youth – with a new sort of mature confidence that holds the album together wonderfully. Titles include "Brown Sugar", "Wild Horses", "You Gotta Move", "Can't You Hear Me Knocking", "Bitch", "Sister Morphine", "Dead Flowers", and "I Got The Blues". Killer deluxe edition – with bonus tracks that include a reading of "Brown Sugar" with Eric Clapton – plus "Wild Horses (acoustic)", "Bitch (extended)", "Dead Flowers (alternate)", and "Can't You Hear Me Knocing (alternate)" – and four tracks recorded live at the Roundhouse in 1971 – "Honky Tonk Women", "Stray Cat Blues", "Live With Me", and "Love In Vain".

George SemperGot To Find A Way To Make Some Money/The Weight (inst) ... 7-inch
Dynamite Cuts (UK), 1972. New Copy (pic cover)... $18.99
Two rare cuts from George Semper – a cat that some folks know as a funky organist, but who also produced a fair bit of hip soul as well! "Got To Find A Way" is from the rare Inner City Review album – and has these full, righteous vocals soaring to the skies – almost Staple Singers, but with a more secular message – as the bold rhythms get some nice organ lines from George! There's plenty more organ on "The Weight" – not the big hit, but an unreleased gem that follows the same groove as the a-side, but with a much deeper instrumental vibe! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Clark TerryMumbles ... CD
Mainstream/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1966. Used ... $11.99
A surprisingly great little record from Clark Terry – filled with warmth, humor, and some really great grooves! The core of the album is the track "Mumbles", one that's based around Terry kind of slurring a scat vocal to a jazzy 60s groove. The track was a minor hit at the time, and Mainstream recorded a whole album around it – using the arranging talents of Joe Cain, who runs through a lot of elements that really make the set cook – from Latin percussion, to Hammond organ grooving, electric guitar, and an overall sound that's got a hip Verve Records feel. Players include Vinnie Bell on guitar, Willie Bobo on percussion, Grady Tate on drums, and Jerome Richardson on reeds – and Cain really makes the record groove in ways that we've never heard on another Terry session. Titles include "Mumbles", "Rum & Mumbles", "Big Spender", "The Mumbler Strikes Again", "El Blues Latino", and "The Cat From Cadiz". CD

Michael ThomasEvent Horizon ... CD
Giant Step Arts, 2020. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99 24.90
Not the first album we've heard from saxophonist Michael Thomas, but a record that definitely has us looking at his music all over again – thanks to a double-length collection of wonderfully extended tunes – on which Thomas really runs with bold, open energy on the alto sax! The group here has no piano – just the trumpet of Jason Palmer in the frontline, plus bass from Hans Glawischnig and drums from Johnathan Blake – two rhythm players who bring plenty to the table, but sometimes like to let the horns to the swinging – which Thomas and Palmer do in these nicely blocky passages of sound. All tunes are originals by the leader – and titles include "Fox & Cat", "Dr Teeth", "Framework", "Chant", "Underground", "Event Horizon", and "Distance". CD

Charly (UK), Late 50s/1960s/1970s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $8.99 11.98
A beautifully overstuffed collection of early work from New Orleans soul legend Allen Toussaint – a set that not only includes many of his key recordings from the scene in the 60s, but also some of his important productions for other artists too! The package begins with Toussaint in the lead on a series of sides on CD one – working either as himself, or as Al Touson, or with The Stones, The Rubyiats, or Allen & Allen – all with these choppy, loping, heavy-grooving rhythms that were Toussaint's huge contribution to New Orleans soul right from the start! Titles include "Whirlaway", "Whipped Cream", "Moo Moo", "Wham Tousan", "Omar Khayyam", "I Don't Need One", "Baby Do Liddle", "Tomorrow", "Fat Cat", "Banana Split", and "Java". CD2 features a series of recordings done for the Minit, Instant, and Sansu labels – all with Toussaint involved either as producer, arranger, or musician – on material that forever shaped the sound of New Orleans – titles that include "A Certain Girl" by Ernie K Doe, "Over You" by Aaron Neville, "I Like It Like That (parts 1 & 2)" by Chris Kenner, "Sophisticated Cissy" by The Meters, "Holy Cow" by Lee Dorsey, "I'm Evil Tonight" by Betty Harris, "Oogsey Moo" by Jessie Hill, "It Will Stand" by The Showmen, "Ruler Of My Heart" by Irma Thomas, "Fortune Teller" by Benny Spellman, and "Hot Tamales (parts 1 & 2)" by The Primemates. 50 tracks in all!

✨✧ US Music with FunkadelicUS Music with Funkadelic ... CD
Westbound, 1972. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A massive treasure from the P-Funk empire – an unreleased George Clinton project during his glory days on Westbound Records! The group features Gary Shider in the lead on vocals – with support from other US Music members, and a fair bit of the current Funkadelic lineup too – musicians who played on the legendary America Eats Its Young sessions, recorded at the same time as this one! The sound is incredibly sinister – even more tripped-out, fuzzy, and psychedelic than most regular Funkadelic work – with lots of dark moments, and basslines that are sure to blast out your speakers – courtesy of Cordell Mosson. Other group members chime in with Shider, too – in the best Clinton-directed style of the time – and the whole thing has a massive ensemble feel that's wonderful, and right up there with the well known Westbound P-Funk recordings of the time. Why this one wasn't released is a real mystery to us – but we're mighty thankful to finally have it out! Titles include "This Broken Heart", "Baby I Owe You Something Good", "Be What You Is", "I Miss My Baby", and "Rat Kiss The Cat On The Naval". CD also features 2 bonus cuts – mono single mixes of "I Miss My Baby" and "Baby I Owe You Something Good". CD

A really unique session for guitarist Kazumi Watanabe – one that's co-led with American vocalist Jimmy Hopps! Hopps' work on the record is really wonderful – poetic and soulful, with a deep-voiced quality that sets the mood of the album from the very first tune. Vocal and instrumental numbers alternate – and Watanabe's playing in an introspective style that's relatively airy, and has a really evocative tone. Tenor sax player Joe Jacson's also on the record, and sings a bit – as does guest vocalist Reiko Aoki. Titles include "Handle Me Gently", "Brothers & Sisters", "Blues Africaine", "Lonesome Cat", "Ann", "Poem", and "Salute To Papa". CD

Jazz Is Dead, 2020. New Copy ... $11.99 12.99
A fantastic combination of funky grooves – the studio talents of Adrian Younge & Ali Shaheed Muhammad, and the Brazilian-tinged fusion of the legendary Azymuth! The jazzy trio are in great form here – tunes that are lean, and which really offer up all the best aspects that the group brought to their music back in the late 70s and early 80s – spun with a slightly different format by the lineup of Alex Malheiros on bass, Ivan Mamao Conti on drums, and Linklon Kiko Contentino on Fender Rhodes and keyboards – but handled perfectly by Adrian and Ali in the studio – with just the right sort of sound to avoid some of the slicker production that the group had on some of their other American recordings from years back. All tunes are new originals – and titles include "Pulando Corda", "Friendship Samba", "Apocolyptico", "Cat Jump", "Fall Afternoon", "Ao Redor Do Samba", and "Sumare". CD

The swamps of Louisiana hold many secrets – and one of the is the massive amount of fantastic music cut on the scene in the 50s and 60s – so much so that we're still discovering overlooked gems and rare material all these many years later! This package is a great entry in this ongoing series by Ace – and pulls together 12 unreleased tracks and other rare singles from the indie studio scene in Louisiana – really showing off that complicated criss-crossing of modes that made its music very different from other southern sounds at the time!

Eddie Piller is one mighty cool cat – the force behind the Acid Jazz label for many decades, and also an expert on rare mod records from the 60s – which he's released on some great collections over the years! This time around, Eddie takes us right to the heart of the British mod revival which began in the late 70s – a scene in which Piller played a part before rising to the worlds of funk and jazz – and which he runs through here in a great batch of 92 tracks, all supported by notes on the music from his own perspective! The set is done in a great book-like style, with lots of images and other notes – and although we knew some of the bigger names on the scene, there's plenty here we'd never heard before – a huge set list that includes cuts by The Mods, Nips, Circles, Speedball, New Hearts, The Jam, Jolt, Purple Hearts, Scarlet Party, Mood Six, The Times, Onlookers, The Same, The Clues, 007, The Reaction, The Crooks, Dolly Mixture, Squire, Madness, Nine Below Zero, Secret Affair, The Step, Les Elite, Two Tone Pinks, Studio 68, Strangeways, The Moment, Corduroy, Makin Time, James Taylor Quartet, Little Murders, and many others!

The work here is nicely varied – as many styles as promised in the title, but with maybe the soulful edge of rocksteady at the core – a strong focus on the kind of late 60s singles that had more than enough depth to cross the Atlantic and get plenty of play on the London scene too! Titles include "Rock Steady Party" by Glenn Miller, "Walk With Des" by Des All Stars, "Tell It To Me" by Stranger & Patsy, "I Love The Reggae" by The Gaylads, "Brother Moses" by Clancy Collins, "Nigeria" by Hippy Boys, "Smooth & Sorts" by Dave Collins, "Black Out" by The Hardy Boys, and "Coming On The Scene" by Johnny & The Attractions.

A crazy collection of singles from the pre-hippie years of the beatnik – that cool cat who loved jazz, read poetry, and dug the scene with plenty of attitude! That attitude is the main focus of most of the cuts here – obscure tracks from the late 50s and early 60s that poke fun at the heady thoughts and easy intellectualism of the beat scene – presented in a range of different styles that really run the gamut – from jazz, to rock, to many other genres in between – including a fair bit of offbeat spoken word and instrumental records too! The vibe here follows nicely in the other Lux & Ivy collections on the Righteous label – full of weird and wild records we never would have discovered otherwise – with cuts that include "Dog" by Bob Dorough, "Laffin Beatnik" by Johnny Beeman, "Reaching Into In" by Ken Nordine, "No Pictures Please" by Rod McKuen, "Manhattan Fable" by Babs Gonzales, "Pimples & Braces" by Spike Jones & The City Slickers, "Teenage Beatnik" by Louis Nye, "A Beatnik Story" by The Expressos, "Meet The Bongo Man" by Johnny O, and "William Butler Yeats On The Third Avenue El" by Lawrence Ferlinghetti.
