Cat Mother & The All Night News BoysStreet Giveth & The Street Taketh Away ... LP
Polydor, 1968. Very Good+ ... $7.99
A legendary batch of funky rock tracks – noteworthy not only for production by Jimi Hendrix, but also for the group's insanely great groove! There's a bluesy undercurrent here, but sharpened much more strongly for the funk generation – which takes Cat Mother way past contemporaries like Canned Heat or The Steve Miller Band – yet also still has the gritty power of both of those groups. Jimi's production is surprisingly great – fused tightly at times, in ways that almost preface some modes that bigger acts would take rootsy sounds in the 70s, but much more revolutionary here. The set's worth it alone for the trippy instrumental jam "Track In A", and other tracks include "Can You Dance To It", "Marie", "How I Spent My Summer", "Bramble Bush", "Boston Burglar", and "Favors".

Cat Mother & The All Night NewsboysAlbion Doo Wah ... LP
Polydor, 1970. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $6.99
A really compelling second set from Cat Mother & The All Night Newsboys – and quite different than the first! On their Polydor debut, the group had Jimi Hendrix at the production helm – but this time they're taking things on their own, with a feel that's nicely loose and freewheeling – and which really matches the woodsy image of the cover! The core mix of guitar and organ is still as tight as before – but it also gets some nice rootsy touches from violin, mandolin, and acoustic guitar – used in ways that echo folk and maybe preface a bit of redneck rock – yet which also have a bit more of a North Cali sort of sensibility in the long run. Titles include "Riff Raff", "Boonville Massacre", "Turkish Taffy", "Last Go Round", "Good Times", "Albion Doo Wah", and "Strike A Match & Light Another". LP, Vinyl record album

Solar/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1986. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An overlooked gem from the Solar Records label – a real powerhouse of 80s soul, but one who's talents weren't able to put Cat Miller on the top of the charts! That lack is hardly reflected in the sound of the album, though – as the whole thing is as tight and filled with crossover energy as the label's biggest from the decade – with Cat shining both the the ballads and the groovers – the latter of which might even be somewhere in early Janet Jackson territory. Production is as varied as the material – work by Bernadette Cooper, Greg Perry, and the team of LA & Babyface – plus the great Leon Ware on the album's remake of his classic "I Want You". Other titles include "Beat My Face", "Computer Love", "Be For Real", "Fool In Love", "Move A Little Closer", and "Rescue Me". CD features bonus tracks – "Be For Real (single)", "Beat My Face (12" club dub)", and "Beat My Face (12" bonus beats)". CD

✨✧ Cat StevensIzitso ... LP
A&M, 1977. Very Good Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
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!

Ed Bogas/Ray Shanklin/VariousFritz The Cat – Original Soundtrack (picture disc) (2018 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Fantasy, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $34.99
The funky freaky soundtrack to Ralph Bakshi's animated feature Fritz The Cat – a really messed-up little film based around the original character created by Robert Crumb! Like the movie, the album's got a very skittish kind of feel – leaping from one genre to the next with each different track – but mostly featuring some older numbers from the Fantasy catalog, plus some key newer tracks for the set that are nice and funky! Original tunes include the bad-rapping "Fritz The Cat", by Ed Bogas and The Watson Sisters – plus the instrumentals "Duke's Theme" and "Bertha's Theme" by Ray Shanklin, and "The Riot" and "Winston" by Ed Bogas. Also includes "Love Light Of Mine" by The Watson Sisters, "Black Talk" by Charles Earland, and "Mamblues" by Cal Tjader. LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby Bradford/Frode Gjerstad/Kent Carter/John StevensBlue Cat ... LP
No Business (Lithuania), 1991. New Copy ... $22.99
We never cease to be amazed at the sonic sensibilities of the cornet of Bobby Bradford – a musician who always seems to turn out stunning work, no matter what the decade! Here, Bradford is heard in an unissued live performance that features one long improvisation – but a piece that has that usual mix of preconceived structure and individual freedom that Bobby seems to do better than most – a vibe that comes through especially well when the group are hitting some surprising moments of swing! The pairing of Kent Carter's bass and John Stevens' drums is superb – and the alto of Frode Gjerstad stands out again as one of the best pairings with Bradford since the reedwork of John Carter.

✨✧ Durul GenceBlack Cat/Boo Song ... 7-inch
Finders Keepers (UK), 1974. New Copy (pic cover)... $14.99
"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

Mongo SantamariaEl Pussy Cat ... LP
Columbia, 1965. Near Mint- ... $11.99
A really pivotal album in the career of Mongo Santamaria – one that has Mongo stripping down the groove, kicking up some jazz, and mixing together soulful styles that brought him to the top of the Latin crowd of the 1960s! There's a tightness here that goes beyond any of Santamaria's previous albums – a no-nonsense approach that makes for some incredibly hard-hitting numbers – heavy on the conga, but also featuring strong piano lines from Rodger Grand, trumpet from Marty Sheller, flute and tenor from Hubert Laws, and alto sax and baritone from Bobby Capers! This small combo provides pretty much all of the instrumentation for the record – and there's no added tricks or gimmicks, just hard-grooving Latin jazz at its best! Titles include "El Pussy Cat", "Together", "Black Eyed Peas", "Ritmo Negro", "Sarai", "Hammer Head", and "Afro Lypso". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Dionne WarwickTrack Of The Cat ... LP
Warner, 1975. Very Good+ ... $3.99
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

Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $12.99 18.99
The depths of Louisiana soul know no bounds – not just the countless great singers and singles that came from the New Orleans scene, but the wealth of wonderful work that flowed from the rest of the state as well! This collection, like the others in the series, does a fantastic job of bringing forth a huge amount of under-documented Louisiana soul material – some of it issued on singles, some not released at the time – all given the fantastic treatment that we've always loved from Ace Records – which means very detailed notes, great sound, and everything you need to make the enjoyment of the compilation way more than just finding a set of songs online! Most of this material is from that time when R&B was shifting into soul – with plenty of bluesy currents in the mix – and titles include "Everybody Wants To Know" by Lester Robertson, "Tomorrow I'll Be Gone" by Elizabeth, "Come On Home" by Prince Charles, "Rocks On My Pillow" by Cookie & The Cupcakes, "It Happened So Fast" by Clifton Chenier, "I Wants You" by Ashton Savoy, "For Your Precious Love" by Sonny Martin, "Raise Some San" by Jay Nelson & His Jumpers, "Bye Bye Baby" by The Yellow Jacket, "My Life For Your Love" by Blues Boy Palmer, "Augustine" by Rockin Sidney, "Shake It Up" by Thaddeus Declouet, "Bop Cat Stomp" by King Charles, and even a few tracks by unknown artists, rescued from rare tapes – "I Found My Baby" and "Be My Baby Doll".

✨✧ Ronnie FosterCheshire Cat ... LP
Blue Note, 1975. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Wicked keyboards from Ronnie Foster – and a set that really steps forward from his previous two Blue Note albums! The record really has Ronnie moving into a more rounded soul space – singing along with his keyboards, in ways that may well be aimed at making Foster the next Stevie Wonder – although still with some of the hipper, quirkier touches that make his music so great! The lineup of players is very top shelf – almost more of a CTI/Kudu session, with George Benson and Joe Beck on guitar, Mtume on congas, and lots of heavy bass from William Allen and Gary King. Foster wrote all the cuts – save for a cover of Stevie Wonder's "Tuesday Heartbreak" – and titles include "Funky Motion", which was covered by Roy Ayers – plus "Cheshire Cat", "Fly Away", "Heartless", and "Like a Child".

President (France), 1967. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Wonderful 60s work from pianist Michel Sardaby – a smoking little quintet session, and one of his few non-trio dates from the time! The groove here is totally wonderful – almost in the space of a Blue Note or Prestige album of the 60s, but served up with a bit more sensitivity overall – as you might expect from Sardaby's piano! Players include Pierre Dutour on trumpet, Alain Hatot on tenor, Henri Tischitz on bass, and Michel Denis on drums – and Sardaby himself seems to have a new sense of fire in the larger setting – really attacking the keys of the piano with enough force to drive the combo strongly. Titles include "Punch", "My Sweet Eleonore", "Five Cat's Blues", "Sonia", and "Flippin Out On Monday". LP, Vinyl record album

Sony (Japan), 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great bit of electric jazz from the Japanese scene of the 70s – an album that easily rivals the best CTI work in the US at the time! Trombonist Hiroshi Suzuki heads up a quintet here – one that's heavy on electric piano and keyboards, played in a stretched-out sort of groove that reminds us a lot of the energy on Freddie Hubbard's funkiest albums from the same period. The tracks are all quite long – and step out with a wonderfully rhythmic sensibility – spare at times, and very focused on the right rolling approach to the groove. Suzuki's trombone solos are matched by some equally great sax work from Takeru Muraoka – and rhythm is from Kunimitsu Inaba on bass and Akira Ishikawa on drums. Filled with great breaks and laidback jazzy grooves – and featuring tracks that include "Cat", "Walk Tall", "Romance", "Shrimp Dance", and "Kuro To Shiro". CD

✨✧ Gene AmmonsLegends Of Acid Jazz – Black Cat!/You Talk That Talk! ... CD
Prestige, 1970/1971. Used ... Out Of Stock
A pair of funky killers from tenorist Gene Ammons! Black Cat is one of the great funky albums that Gene Ammons cut for Prestige at the start of the 70s – quite different than his earlier work for the label, and a very different showcase for his tenor genius! The whole lineup here is amazing – a quintet that features heavy drums from Idris Muhammad, piano and Fender Rhodes from Harold Mabern, bass from Ron Carter, and some tremendously smoking guitar from the great George Freeman! Freeman goes nuts on the funky cut "The Black Cat" – and other tracks include "Jug Eyes", "Hi Ruth", "Something", and "Piece To Keep Away Evil Spirits". You Talk That Talk is a set done in collaboration with Sonny Stitt – and these two tenor giants meet in the period slightly before Ammons death, and they're grouped with some of the younger funky players on Prestige, like Leon Spencer, Idris Muhammad, and George Freeman. The sound is fairly traditional, but there's some nice funky moments. Tracks include "Out Of It", which was written by Harold Vick, "The People's Choice", written by Harold Ousley, and the title cut, which is a Leon Spencer original. The 14 track set includes the full titles from 2 LPs, plus 2 bonus cuts from a rare source! CD

Cat On A Hot Thin Groove includes all of his magazine covers, cartoon panels and other bits from Record Changer – versatile work that ranges from fun, cartoon-y panels of "Jazz Cat" characters, to more elaborate and abstract illustrations. Wonderful, vital stuff – and it's very nicely anthologized here by Fantagraphics! Coffee-table scale paperback – 160+ pages of prime Deitch jazzy drawings with text accompaniment. Book

Vertigo/Cherry Red (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 6CD ... 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.

Universal (France), 1956. Used ... Out Of Stock
Belgian guitarist Rene Thomas was one of the leading lights of the Parisian hardbop scene in the 50s – and this set features some of his greatest work from the time! The core album is a cracker – a great date that has Thomas' guitar coming into play with the piano of Rene Urtreger, bass of Benoit Quersin, and drums of Jean-Louis Vitale – really grooving together strongly, with a clean, clear tone that made Rene one of, if not THE, best guitarist working in Europe during the postwar years. Andre Ross plays tenor on a few tracks, adding in an extra-great sound – and titles include "Lover Man", "The Continental", "If I Had You", "Relaxin At The Grand Balcon", and "L'Imbecile". CD also features 8 more tracks from a second album – one that features Serge Bib Monville on tenor, Roland Ronchaud on piano, Benoit Quersin on bass, and Jose Bourguignon on drums. Titles include "Night In Tunisia", "Easy To Love", "The Real Cat", "My Old Flame", "Shine", and "Goodnight Wherever You Are". CD

A very nice album of obscure soul jazz piano tracks – and certainly the best record ever from Rupert Cobbett! The tracks are a mix of straighter jazz cuts, plus others that have a mellow funky sound, and some nice electric piano. Cuts include the spacey "Bad Rooster", the funky "Seven Heaven", and the soulful "What It Is", which has some uncredited vocals. Other titles include "On Three Legs", "Play The Game", and "Ultra Wave". Not totally funky – but a nice lost little record, with a good vibe, perhaps thanks to the fact that Abbey Lincoln was the executive producer! LP, Vinyl record album

Cat/P-Vine (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $24.99
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.

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".

Cat/Solid (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $22.99
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

An excellent album of smooth soul tracks – very different than Little Beaver's earlier work, but every bit as great! The album's got a warm, mellow finish that's almost a maturation of the sound that Beaver first forged on his Party Down album – with plenty of his deep soul vocals and guitar work laced through the mix, on top of lots of nice keyboard bits from Timmy Thomas! The groove is mellow Miami soul at its best – and in a way, it's this shift that really helped Beaver keep his music alive – giving it a depth that sets it apart from some of the hitbound Miami music of the period. Titles include the classic groover "Concrete Jungle", plus "When Was The Last Time", "Pretty Little Girl", and "I Really Love You Babe". CD

A Miami soul classic from the 70s – and a legendary pairing of George and Gwen McCrae – with results that soar past the individual work by the pair! Gwen's vocals are killer – deep, soulful, and still with the bite of her own TK albums – and the grooves here echo a bit more of George's world, but in a way that really makes for great interplay between the two singers – a back/forth sort of energy that pushes things away from any sleepy moments and throwaway tracks – and which also offers up a great 70s Miami take on the soul duo mode of the 60s. The record includes the wonderful "I'll Do The Rocking", plus "Mechanical Body", "Winners Together Or Losers Apart", "The Rub", "You And I Were Made For Each Other", "Let Your Love Do The Talking", and "I'm Coming At You".

Cat/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $13.99
A landmark album from the Miami soul scene of the 70s – the record that put Gwen McCrae on the map, and showed to the world that the TK sound was about to dominate the charts! There's a really unique groove to the set – part older southern soul, part percolated electric modes – that funky groove that Little Beaver, Timmy Thomas, and some of Gwen's TK contemporaries had been cooking up at the time. Both Beaver and Thomas are working on the sessions – as are Willie Clark, Latimore, and George Perry – and even the backup vocals are hip – with help from George McCrae, Betty Wright, and KC of Sunshine Band fame. But throughout it all, Gwen's the real star – singing with an impeccable vocal approach that's full of soul, yet never overdone – heard to amazing effect on the classic track "90% Of Me" – and other gems that include "For Your Love", "He Keeps Something Groovy Going On", "It Keeps On Raining", "He Don't Ever Lose His Groove", "Move Me Baby", and "Let Them Talk".

✨✧ Gwen McCraeLet's Straighten It Out ... LP
Cat, 1978. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A killer bit of southern soul from Gwen McCrae – one that's in the best tradition of Miami work of the time, but which also takes Gwen into even deeper territory vocally! The record's got a mature depth that we totally love – a quality that shows the key "adult" transitions that were going on in the Miami studios of the 70s – as southern soul was shaking off its rougher roots, and going for a more sophisticated audience – yet still managed to keep all the raw power and honest emotion that made the genre so great in the first place. Most tracks here are in a mellow or midtempo mode, and there's surprisingly little club-oriented tracks on the set. Titles include a killer remake of Latimore's "Let's Straighten It Out", plus "Love Insurance", "Cradle Of Love", "At Bedtime", and "Early Morning Love", an excellent number by the great Sam Dees.

Raw Soul ExpressRaw Soul Express (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Cat/Solid (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $19.99
A monster of a rare funk album – recorded by a tight little combo who should have been huge! Raw Soul Express have a touch of jazz in their playing – coming off here with a sound that reminds us of Wood Brass & Steel, and a rare few other funk acts of the time who knew how to do more than just hit a heavy drum and pluck a noisy bass – really going beyond the usual to come up with a groove that's wonderfully crafted throughout – and way way more than just the sum of its parts! Not that the band is slick or too polished, though – because they definitely earn the "raw" in their name with some sharp edges on the instrumentation – a sharp sense of power that really helps the whole thing cook. Titles include "RSE", "Burn The Candle", "Music Meditation", "Right On", and "Emergency". CD features two bonus tracks – "The Way We Live" and "This Thing Called Music". CD

✨✧ Black KnightBlack Knight ... LP
Cat, Early 70s. Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An excellent bit of southern funk – very much in the early mode of Little Beaver, but with a sound that's even harder! James Knight is The Black Knight – leading a tight little combo with a raw funky 45 sound, heavy on the horns for backing, but with James' guitar right up front in the mix, jamming hard in a way that would have made Hendrix proud! The tracks are a mix of heavy funk numbers and more tripped-out james – and Knight's vocals remind us a bit of Charles Wright in the old days, blaring out of the speakers with a bit of distortion and lots of soul, really driving home the quality of the songs. Titles include "Fantasy World", "Save Me", "Flyin High", "Funky Cat", "Uncle Joe", "Cotton Candy", and "Just My Love For You". LP, Vinyl record album

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

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.

✨✧ Gwen McCraeMelody Of Life ... CD
Cat/Solid (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... 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

Cannonball AdderleyPrice You Got To Pay To Be Free ... LP
Capitol, 1970. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $11.99
Fantastic work from the massive electric years of the Cannonball Adderley Quintet – one of the group's last records to feature the keyboards of Joe Zawinul – and also one of the heaviest from the time! The set's a double-length gem that presents the group in an open live setting – one that really displays the full charm of their approach at the time, and that wonderfully crowd-winning mode that made Cannon a key act at this time for rock and soul audiences too! Adderley raps a bit at key points, and brings some righteous energy to the concert – while the rest of the group follow up with performances that really send the whole thing home – Nat Adderley on cornet, Zawinul on Fender Rhodes and piano, Walter Booker on bass, and Roy McCurdy on drums. Cannon plays some soprano sax, in addition to his familiar alto – and titles include "Alto Sex", "Lonesome Stranger", "Wild Cat Pee", "Soul Virgo", "Painted Desert", "Directions", "Pra Dizer Adeus", "Rumplestiltskin", "Price You Got To Pay To Be Free", "Esquisition", "Get Up Off Your Knees", "Down In Black Bottom", and "The Scene".

Ray BarrettoOther Road ... LP
Fania, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $29.99
Ray Barretto's definitely going down different road here – and sounding amazingly great in the process! The record is unlike anything else that Ray did at the time – a stunning batch of fusion tracks, with more of an electric jazz approach than usual – one that's a soaringly sublime blend of Latin, fusion, and soul – all delivered with a near-perfect sound throughout! There's a depth of soul and sophistication here that's hard to match – save, perhaps, by Bobby Vince Paunetto's mid 70s gems – and the group features killer Fender Rhodes from Eddy Martinez, plus a three trumpet frontline dancing together with a sound that's a lot more soul jazz than Latin leads. Billy Cobham plays drums, Art Webb is on flute, and titles include "Lucretia The Cat", "Oracion", "The Other Road", "Little Ting", and "Abidjan Revisited". LP, Vinyl record album

Danny Ben-IsraelKathmandu Sessions ... LP
Locust/Anazitisi (Greece), Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
Here's some pretty awesome late 60s psychedelic freakout gems from a cat we'd never heard of before – Israeli citizen Danny Ben-Israel – who only ever recorded a couple of albums worth of material! One of those albums, Chantarish 3 1/4 (also known as Bullshit 3 1/4) was recorded in his native Hebrew, and was soon as much as banned in Israel, so Ben-Israel then packed up his English language recordings from the same Tel-Aviv sessions and headed to the US. The massive, free-spiraling tunes that comprise the first 3 tracks on this CD issue combine the kind of way out space trip electric guitar that Hendrix played live but never recorded, and stable bass, drums and Eastern-tinged keyboards that keep it all rock and roll – no matter how out there Danny's wailing vocals and lyrics go. The remaining tracks feature Danny alone on all the instrumentation (bass, guitar, whistle, violin, keyboards and other odd sounds.) Tracks include "Kathmandu", "Bad Trip", "Do You Believe In Fairy Tales?", "Seagulls", "Can't Stand You" and the great closer "The Hippies Of Today Are The Assholes Of Tomorrow" – which is not only one of the most deadpan satires we've ever heard from the psychedelic era, but it also contains just about as much incisive, prescient truthisms as any Dylan tome from late 60s!

A mega-hit for David Bowie – and an album that reduced some of the complexity of previous efforts, yet still managed to hold onto all that was great! There's definitely some massive chart material here, but the tunes are still some of the best of their time, pop-wise – tracks that bring forward the best dark corners of the Bowie mythos, and refine them slightly for a new generation – always in tunefully compelling ways. And despite the crossover fame of the set, it holds up surprisingly well over the years – possibly because of that status. Titles include "Modern Love", "China Girl", "Let's Dance", "Without You", "Criminal World", and "Cat People" (in a different take than the soundtrack version.) LP, Vinyl record album

A totally excellent album by Jaki Byard – and nothing like any other "with strings" album you've ever heard! Sure, the set does have some stringed instruments in the group – but it's a small combo session with bass, violin, guitar, and cello, not a large overly-orchestral affair. Byard's mad vision uses these strings wonderfully to carve out some oddly arranged tunes that mix together soul jazz grooving and a haunting spiritual approach to jazz that points at later work on labels like Strata East. Includes a sublime remake of "Music To Watch Girls By", "Falling Rains Of Life", "Cat's Cradle Conference Rag", and a long version of "How High The Moon". LP, Vinyl record album

One of the coolest collections of work we've ever seen by The Cadillacs – a set that definitely rocks, but which also presents the group in all their mad and many modes! In some ways, The Cadillacs were sort of an east coast counterpart to The Coasters – able to sing with as much dynamic energy, and with ears for all sorts of unusual tunes that were filled with wit – almost an audio version of a cartoon, given some of the storylines and really animated vocals! The group have always been one of our favorites from back in the day – and this cool collection really gets at all the things that made them so great – with a whopping 34 tracks in all, and the usual great Bear Family notes and production values. Titles include "Sugar Sugar", "Zoom (version 2)", "No Chance", "Down The Road", "Great Googly Moo", "Cool It Fool", "Jay Walker", "Romeo", "Bad Dan McGoon, "Naggity Nag, "Dumbell", "Gloria", "Still You Left Me Baby", "Shock A Doo", "I Want To Know About Love", "Copy Cat", and "A Looka Here".

This is about as strong as you can get from Willie Colon – he's holding a gun to some cat's head on the cover! (And hip hoppers think they invented the gangster image!) More than just a catchy picture, though, the image is really important at a symbolic level – as the guy Willie's capping is an older one, possibly a bloated bandleader from years past, being shoved out of the way by Willie's leaner, cleaner sound and style. The album more than lives up to that picture, too – as it's filled with hard-hitting salsa numbers that show Willie and crew refining their sound even more from their already-strong previous albums. Includes the long cut "Junio 73", a really wonderful number, plus loads of other great ones that include "Guajira Ven", "Vo So", and "Calle Luna Calle Sol". LP, Vinyl record album

Darkly brooding work from John Coltrane's early years as a leader on Prestige – a very unique little record that features twin baritone sax support from Pepper Adams and Cecil Payne! Both players are wonderfully hip here – more than enough to match Trane's unique musical vision for the group's format – and the sound of the session is much edgier than some of his other Prestige work – which may be why the label chose not to issue it until 1963, even though it was recorded back in '57. There's a nice roughness here – the same inspirational early sound you'll get on Coltrane's early sides for Savoy or Imperial – and other players include Mal Waldron on piano, Doug Watkins on bass, and Art Taylor on drums. Titles include "Cat Walk", "Dakar", "Route 4", "Velvet Scene", and "Witches Pit". CD

El (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $12.99
Jess Conrad looks a bit more straight-laced than the usual British rocker of the 60s – and he sounds a bit more here, too – in a set of completely charming tracks that had their birth at the moment when the UK labels weren't above bringing a huge production force to bear on the talents of a singer! Conrad was often as much a screen actor as he was a singer – and in a way, he's maybe a bit like a British version of Tommy Sands – charming at the start, and able to bring a subtle sense of drama to his vocals – one that's never too overdone, but which paces things nicely here – and which creates some surprisingly nice moments in the music, maybe more than you'd expect from his clean teen look. This set features a huge 63 tracks in all – singles issued well into the 70s, along with some unissued tracks too – titles that include "There's Gonne Be A Day", "See The Tinker Ride", "Pussy Cat", "Tempted", "A Little Bit Of Loveliness", "My Idea", "A Conspiracy Of Cards", "Twist My Wrist", "Pretty Jenny", "Unless You Mean It", "Mystery Girl", "Out Of Luck", "There's Gonna Be A Day", "Every Breath I Take", "You Too", "Swimming In Tears", "Lock Up Your Daughters", and "Down Town Tonight".

Bill Cosby (aka Badfoot Brown)Bill Cosby Presents Badfoot Brown & The Bunions Bradford Funeral & Marching Band ... CD
Uni/Dusty Groove, 1971. Used ... $7.99
A funky masterpiece from Bill Cosby – hardly the sort of record you might expect from all of his years on mainstream TV! This set was cut back when Bill was a much hipper cat on the LA scene – and it was the start of a brief all-instrumental run with his Badfoot Brown ensemble – a group who's not named in the notes on the record, but who offer up some seriously funky grooves! Bill supposedly plays keyboards himself – some really mad electric piano that's often repetitive, cyclical, and really hypnotic – a tripped-out style that's more funk than jazz, and which is easily one of the best parts of the record. But the rhythms are great too – equally hypnotic, and build up from bass, organ, guitar, and this whomping sort of drum part – echoing strongly in the background and really bringing a spooky feel to the set. Side one includes the amazing "Martin's Funeral" – sampled famously by Tribe Called Quest, and a 15 minute jam that's inspired by the funeral of Martin Luther King. Side two features "Hybish Shybish", an even longer track that's sort of an improvised jazz game – and which features tripped-out instrumental trading that's simply amazing. The whole record is really mindblowing – a messed-up jam session that's well worth the legend that's been built up around it over the years – and we're hard-pressed to think of another album like it! And as a special bonus, the package features these really long notes written by Bill Cosby himself – words that are as unusual as the music, and a side of him that's hardly been shown again. CD

Most of the tunes are covers, but remade here as really hip instrumentals – often with bold work from the Count on his drum kit – which then sets fire to the larger group's blend of tight horns and electric rhythmic instrumentation – all coming across with that perfect cusp of the 70s Japanese jazz sound we love so much! Most tracks are shortish, and very groovy – and titles include "The Cat", "Touch Me", "Amen", "Soul Limbo", "Hold Tight", "Otis Sleep On", "Sidewinder", "Going Up The Country", and "Windy". CD

Dark Entries, Late 70s. New Copy ... $9.99
Moody work from the legendary Patrick Cowley – all music originally composed for use in 70s porno films shot on the San Francisco scene – most of it in the years before Cowley took off in more techno-styled dancefloor modes! These tracks are all heavy on electronics, but the grooves are often somewhat gentle – mostly in modes that run from midtempo to spacey, and which clearly featured during the more languid erotic scenes of the movies – maybe moments when the action was heated, but also rapturously intense. And as such, the music has a very different vibe than the familiar funk and jazz you'd know from other porn films of the period (although there is one great funk number here) – and the use of electronics give most of these cuts a cool, spacey vibe – almost like Sky Records material from the German scene, or pre-cold wave electronics.

Farrell had been making some great noise in the underground during the late 60s – but here, he bursts forth as one heck of a soulful cat – working on these great modal grooves that slide out wonderfully and really have a sense of flow – a style that's different than Joe's later material, but equally powerful! Part of the strength of the record comes from the lineup – a key quintet of like-mined up-and-comers that includes Chick Corea on keyboards, John McLaughlin on guitar, Dave Holland on bass, and Jack DeJohnette on drums – players who definitely know the farther reaches of jazz, yet hang just on the inside here with Joe – providing some amazing accompaniment for his lines on soprano, tenor, and flute.

Herbie HancockTreasure Chest ... LP
Warner, 1974. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $9.99
Seminal sides from Herbie Hancock – amazing material recorded for Warner Brothers in the years between his time at Blue Note and his big fame at Columbia Records – all sides that definitely show Hancock as one mighty righteous cat! Herbie's really stretching past his more conventional jazz of earlier years here – working both with a bit more electricity in his keys, and some larger arrangements that have a wonderful sense of flow and funk – a groove that definitely puts Hancock on a par with Quincy Jones at his funky best during the early 70s! The album's filled with great grooves pulled from the Warner Brothers albums by Hancock – including some quite long numbers – titles that include the funky nuggets "Wiggle Waggle", "Lil Brother", and "Tell Me A Bedtime Story" – plus "Sleeping Giant", "Crossings", "Quazar", "Ostinato", and "You'll Know When You Get There".

✨✧ Neal HeftiOdd Couple ... LP
Dot, Late 60s. Sealed ... Just Sold Out!
The genius of Neal Hefti comes through for us again! Have you ever stopped to listen to the Odd Couple theme? Really listen to it – break it apart with your ears, and let the strange and complex nature of the groove sink into your brain? It's mad stuff, we tell you – one of the most genius moments ever in 60s scoring! This soundtrack features a few versions of Hefti's amazing tune – including one stunning vocal version, with very strange lyrics about Oscar and Felix that almost seem to "out" them as a real couple! The record mixes music from the film with snippets of dialogue – and titles include "Clean Poker", "The Odd Couple", "End Title", "Curse Of The Cat People", "Dirty Poker", "Metropole", and "Down With The Lights".

HelloHello Again (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Polydor/7T's (UK), 1978. New Copy ... $6.99 13.99
Hello have cleaned up their look a bit from previous records, but they're still hitting hard in that glam-inspired groove we love so much! Guitars are fuzzy, the vocals flanged-out too, and even though the rhythms are tight, there's a spooky sort of mid-70s pop vibe going on overall – an undercurrent of nastiness that hides beneath the group's power pop look and catchy tune hooks. Production is relatively simple too – somewhat smoother than before, but still with more than enough rough edges in the right parts. Titles include "99 Ways", "Back Seat Talking", "The Cat Is Wild", "You Shot Me Down", "Oh Caroline", "How To Survive The Night", "Walking Midnight", "Elenore", and "Hi Ho Silver Lining". CD also features 8 more bonus tracks that include "Good Old USA", "Too Much Hesitating", "Night Watcher", "One By One", and "You Got Class Babe". CD

Eddie HillHot Guitar – Gonna Shake This Shack Tonight ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... $13.99 18.99
Country music talent Eddie Hill is maybe best known to the world as the guy who gave the Louvin Brothers their first work, or as a big force on the Grand Old Opry – but he's also a hell of a guitarist who cut some fantastic sides during the postwar years – records that ring out with all sorts of great guitar modes that easily puts Hill right up there with some of the greats of his time! The package is the first to ever do justice to the strengths of Eddie's talents – and features singles recorded for Decca, Mercury, RCA, and Columbia, plus some rare Apollo Records work too – all brought together in a collection that has Hill stepping easily through a variety of hillbilly talents, always with plenty of vocal charm to match his instrumental strengths too. Titles include his classic "The Hot Guitar" – a commentary on all the rising hillbilly styles in 1951 – plus "The Gottalotta Song", "Black Denim Trousers & Motorcycle Boots", "High Wide & Handsome", "Lovin Spree", "Who Wrote The Letter To Old John", "My Sugar Booger", "Bless Your Little Thumpin Gizzard", "Melting Steel", "Mind Your Own Business", "Fire Ball Eight", "Buckshot", "Wild Cat", and "Hard Road To Travel".

Verve, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $12.99
Hodges leads a large group of Ellington players that includes Willie Cook, Clark Terry, Cat Anderson, Jimmy Hamilton, Harry Carney, Ray Nance, and Jimmy Woode. The overall sound has that Ellington-minus-Ellington, plus-Hoges feel of similar Verve sessions like these – with lots of nice strong Hodges tenor work in the foreground. Titles include "Digits", "Viscount", "Segdoh", "An Ordinary Thing", and "Little Rabbit Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny HodgesTriple Play ... LP
RCA, 1967. Near Mint- ... $5.99
The "triple play" in the title refers to the fact that Johnny's working here with 3 different groups – all of them large ones, and stuffed with Ellington-esque players that include Ray Nance, Paul Gonsalves, Milt Hinton, Tiny Grimes, Hank Jones, Cat Anderson, Jimmy Hamilton, Harry Carney, and Billy Butler. Tracks are short, but there's a few nice ones that have the raw bite of Hodges' best work for Verve – with titles that include "Fur Piece", "Take Em Off Take Em Off (parts 1 & 2)", "Sir John", "On The Way Up", and "Wild Onions".

Hodges blows out front in a set of shimmering Billy Strayhorn arrangements – conducted by Strayhorn himself, and featuring players that include Cat Anderson, Howard McGhee, Lawrence Brown, Jimmy Hamilton, Harry Carney, and Paul Gonsalves. The set's a bit more mellow than some of Hodges' more firey sets for Verve – but in a good way. Titles include "Azure", "Tailor Made", "Day Dream", "Jeep's Blues", "Gal From Joe's", and "Your Love Has Faded". LP, Vinyl record album

Human Instinct/Four FoursHuman Instinct & Four Fours 1963 to 1968 ... CD
RPM (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $12.99
A great journey in sound – one undertaken by a New Zealand group who spent the second half of the 60s with a new name, and recording in London too! The combo first started out as The Four Fours in the southern hemisphere – a raw group with a sound that was maybe a bit influenced by the Brit Invasion era, but often carried off with a grittier, garagier vibe – one that offsets the more melodic moments with a nice sort of edge, and really keeps things interesting as the set unfolds through more than a dozen of the group's New Zealand singles for the Allied and Zodiac labels! The set then features later work by The Human Instinct – the new name for the group as they hit the British scene, where they recorded with a bit more psych in the mix – on singles here that were issued by Mercury and Deram. Later Human Instinct material has been reissued, but this is the first time the early side of their career has gotten its full due – on titles that include "Stingray", "From The Bottom Of My Heart", "Theme From An Empty Coffee Lounge", "Barrow Boy", "Jungle Cat, "It's Gonna Rain", "Time Slips Away", "One Track Mind", and "Don't Print My Memoirs" by The Four Fours – plus "A Day In My Mind's Mind", "Renaissance Fair", "Can't Stop Around", "Rich Man", "Pink Dawn", "Death Of The Seaside", and "Want To Be Loved By You" by The Human Instinct.

Janet JacksonJanet Jackson's Rhythm Nation 1814 ... LP
A&M, 1989. Very Good- ... $24.99
A crowning moment in New Jack Swing – or New Jill Swing, as it were – a perfect step forward for Janet Jackson, as she continues to work with the duo of Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, with a vibe that was setting the scene for the rest of mainstream soul at the time! The album's got a larger overall feel than her previous set – partly because it makes use of the expanded CD recording style to add in interludes that link the tracks, and create a great flow through the record – while the lady herself still soars through plenty of catchy cuts that would win her some big hits! Titles include "Escapade", "Miss You Much", "Rhythm Nation", "Alright", "Love Will Never Do (Without You)", "Black Cat" and "Come Back To Me". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ Jose JamesDreamer ... CD
Brownswood (UK), 2007. Used ... $9.99
The stunning debut of a really tremendous talent – a singer we'd put right up there with Jon Lucien or Terry Callier for his uniquely soulful approach to music! Like both of those previous stars, Jose James has a voice that's completely his own – a way of approaching a tune that instantly defies genres – but never in those cloying cliched ways that weigh down the Starbucks generation of singer/songwriters! Instead, James has a breathy presence that reminds us of Nina Simone at her best – and like Callier, he's clearly informed by jazz, but not truly a jazz singer – more of an open-minded cat who's able to embrace a broad history of sound, then work it out into his own personal musical vision. Instrumentation here is mostly small combo – piano, keyboards, guitar, trumpet, bass, and drums – used in a simple but shifting array to fit the mood of each new tune. Trust us, this is one you'll file with your classics right away! Titles include "Spirits Up Above", "Blackeyedsusan", "The Dreamer", "Velvet", "Red", "Winterwind", "Desire", "Love", and "Park Bench People". CD

Lord Invader & His Calypso GroupCalypso Travels (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Folkways, 1960. New Copy (reissue)... On January 24, 2020
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Beautiful reissue – with all the heft of a classic Folkways pressing!)

Markley (West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band)Group ... CD
Forward/Acid Symposium (Greece), 1969. New Copy ... $4.99
An incredible end of the 60s effort that's essentially the final album by West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band – although credited as Markley! Bob Markley and Michael Lloyd co-produced and co-wrote most of the tunes but fellow WCPAEB members are photographed and credited – and the tunes themselves are short little blasts of richly strummed psychedelic folk with a trippy, often dark lyricism that sometimes bely some upbeat arrangements. Wonderful stuff – and the most unjustly overlooked set by an unjustly overlooked group! Titles include "Booker T & His Electric Shock", "Next Plane To The Sun", "Roger The Rocket Ship", "Elegant Ellen", "Little Ruby Rain", "Message For Miniature", "Sarah The Sad Spirit", "Truck Stop", "Zoom, Zoom, Zoom", "Sweet Lady Eleven", "The Magic Cat" and "Outside/Inside".

Rod McKuenListen To The Warm ... LP
RCA, 1967. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Incredible work from Rod McKuen – raspy-voiced pop poetry – served up in a style that's completely sublime! The album's the sort that should make us wince – Rod, the best-selling author of quirky crossover poems – working here both as a speaker and singer to deliver his own words. Yet both in the voice, and in the writing, there's this sort of broken-down masculinity – a new variant of the postwar male, supposedly set free in the new scene of the 60s – but exposed as even more off center than anyone might have expected. Arthur Greenslade's gentle pop arrangements work perfectly for the setting – as does Rod's raspy delivery of the words – whether sung or spoken. Titles include "Round Round Round", "A Cat Named Sloopy", "It's Raining", "Weekend", "Brown October", "Where Are Why", and "The Singing Of The Wind". LP, Vinyl record album
(Orange label stereo pressing with deep groove.)

MoondogSnaketime Series By Moondog (aka Moondog) ... LP
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". This reissue is the original version of the record that was also issued as Moondog on Prestige. LP, Vinyl record album

Lee MorganInfinity (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1965/1979. Used ... $19.99
Lee Morgan on the hippest side of his 60s talents – working here in a style that's really stretching out, and in the same territory as similar unreleased gems from the time – like Tom Cat or Sonic Boom! The group here is very inventive – Jackie McLean on alto, Larry Willis on piano, Reggie Workman on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums – players who really represent the left side of Blue Note, but not as out as the "new thing" crowd – with a really creative approach to both the rhythms and the solos, commanded by Morgan's rich imagination at this point in his career. All tunes are great, and titles include "Zip Code", "Infinity", "Miss Nettie B", "Growing Pains", and McLean's fantastic "Portrait of a Doll". CD

Buddy MorrowPoe For Moderns ... LP
RCA, 1960. Very Good+ ... $1.99
Although Buddy Morrow's best known for his more crime-jazz and Night Train jazz work, this album's got him sounding surprisingly great in a set of tracks dedicated to the work of Edgar Allen Poe! The feel of the music shifts wildly from track to track – with a few that feature Keith McKenna reciting work by Poe, in a Vincent Price-y style, and others that groove with more of a swinging jazz feel. Titles include "The Gold Bug", "Annabel Lee", "A Descent Into The Maelstrom", "The Raven", "Murders in the Rue Morgue", "The Black Cat", and "The Pit & the Pendulum". LP, Vinyl record album
(Living Stereo pressing with deep groove. Cover has some wear and splitting.)
