✨✧ Cat MillerCat (with bonus tracks) ... CD
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 Mother & The All Night News BoysStreet Giveth & The Street Taketh Away ... LP
Polydor, 1968. Very Good+ ... $5.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousLight Mellow Solar Records – Sound Of Los Angeles Records ... CD
Solar/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $29.99
The sound's not entirely mellow – as LA's Solar Records was a label that was pretty dedicated to a groove – but the set does mix in some of the label's great midtempo cuts alongside its better-remembered groovers – all in a great summation of the sound and style that made the company a real powerhouse of west coast soul! The collection covers a good range of the label's strongest acts, and there's some nice surprises along the way, not just the Solar hits – as tracks include "Shine The Light" by Collage, "A Song For Donny" by The Whispers, "Call Me" by Bill Wolfer, "Charlie" by Carrie Lucas, "Two Occasions" by the Deele, "Computer Love" by Cat Miller, "Groovin" by Collage, "I Want To Love You Tonight" by Klymaxx, "Personality" by Dynasty, "Floating With The Tide" by Ralph Butler, "Come Back Lover Come Back" by The Sylvers, "Slow Jam" by Midnight Star, and "I Want To Hold Your Hand" by Lakeside.

✨✧ VariousDestination Crampsville – The Finest In Demented Rock & Roll, Rabid Rockabilly, & JD Pop ... CD
Righteous (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
We're always happy to take a trip to Crampsville – as the journey means that we not only get to live within the world of Lux Interior and Poison Ivy, we also get to discover a huge amount of obscure singles from the glory days of the indie 45! The Cramps built their music on building blocks like these – weird, obscure tunes from the late 50s and early 60s – often leaping across genres in a single tune – mixing rock and R&B, slinky lounge with gritty sleaze, and always exploding with the kind of energy that never could have lasted past the few minutes of music that fit on a 7" record. The set's very much in the great mode of other Righteous Cramps-inspired titles – and features 52 tracks that include "Love Slave" by Bart Mattson, "She'll Never Let Him Go" by Gin Gillette, "Little Joe" by Jack Day, "I'm Blue" by The Ikettes, "Chicken Rock" by Scott Wood & His Band, "Big Foot" by Googie Rene, "The Tingle" by Jackie Weaver, "She's Mine" by Johnny Strickland, "I Got School" by Scott Miller, "Stop At The Hop" by Don Eee, "Rock & Roll Fever" by Gene Ray, "The Gorilla Walk" by Sascha Burland, "The Cat" by Rod Willis, "Watch Your Step" by Bobby Parker, and "I'm Buggin Out Little Baby" by Donny Lee Moore.

✨✧ Lloyd MillerJazz At The University Of Utah (with insert and download) ... LP
East West/Now Again, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
An astonishingly rare treasure by exotic jazz genius Lloyd Miller – originally issued by East West Records in a run of just a few hundred copies! Recorded at The University Of Utah, it's a wonderful synthesis of the eastern and otherwise globally-inspired instrumentation Miller is beloved for, and the western jazz styles of his earlier years playing behind Don Ellis, Eddie Harris & others. Recorded with players from the university's jazz ensembles, along with several numbers with the Mike Johnson Quartet, it came a time when Miller was becoming so well educated in Far Eastern, Middle Eastern and Asian music and culture, and was already such a seasoned American jazz player himself, it's really stunning this set is such a rare one! Amazing stuff from a late 60s period when he was really starting to cement his legend. Includes "Amber Eyes (Guzel Gozler)", "Yona", "Natanie", "Blue Rue", "Sixty Years Of Jazz", "Gol-E Gandom", "Hue Wail", "Sakura", "Impressions Of Bhairavi Raga" and "Midsummer Moon". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes an excellent insert with notes by Francis Gooding and lots of photos, plus a download with WAV files & video of late 60s performances, plus Miller's autobiography "Sufi, Saint & Swinger"!)

✨✧ Bobby HutchersonVibe Wise (Good Bait/Color Schemes) ... CD
32 Jazz, 1984/1985. Used 2 CDs ... $9.99
2 of the nicer Bobby Hutcherson albums of the past 20 years, put together back to back on another one of those nifty 32 Jazz CD packages dedicated to helping jazz fans today rediscover lost gems of the past. Both records have a nice spare straight-ahead jazz sound, which is a refreshing change after some of Hutcherson's forays into larger formats during the 70s. Good Bait features a group with George Cables, Ray Drummond, Philly Joe Jones, and Branford Marsalis – and includes the cuts "Love Samba", "Montgomery", "Israel", and "Good Bait". Color Schemes features Mulgrew Miller, John Heard, and Billy Higgins – and the record has a mix of tracks that includes "Never Let Me Go", "Recorda Me", Bemsha Swing", and "Whisper Not". Hutcherson's tone is amazing on both albums – and it's incredible to hear that even in his third decade of playing the vibes, he was still stretching his work to reach new levels, and lay down notes on the instrument that sound like nobody else!

KicksIssue 1 ... Magazine
Kicks, 1979. New Copy ... $13.99
The first issue of one of our favorite music magazines of all time – the legendary Kicks, a publication that was years ahead of its time when it first hit the racks in 1979! Kicks is an important precursor to current magazines like Mojo, Flashback, Ugly Things, and Shindig – and like those, it does a wonderful job of digging far far back in the past – and providing very rich, very thorough coverage on overlooked corners of rock and roll. This first issue is black and white, and production is more of a zine-style – but the issue is super-thick, and filled with writing by later Norton Records legends Miriam Linna and Billy Miller – on artists who include The Shaggs, Vince Taylor, Flamin Groovies, The Raiders, Keith Allison, and The Velvets – plus lots more great bits in shorter articles too.

Ollie NightingaleSweet Surrender ... CD
Pride/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $13.99
The former leader of Ollie & The Nightingale steps out on his own – hitting a wonderfully deep approach to Memphis soul that's even more sublime than his previous group's records for Stax! There's a quiet genius going on here – a simple but powerful take on southern soul that pushes the genre into a new level of sophistication while still holding onto its roots. The album's a lost southern soul classic that should be on the shelf of anyone who digs male deep soul vocals – and we've never been certain why Ollie never scored bigger with the set at the time! Production and arrangements are by Gene Bowlegs Miller, and titles include "Here I Am Again", "May the Best Man Win", "Sweet Surrender", and "I Gave Her Everything She Needed". CD

Marlena ShawSpice Of Life ... LP
Cadet, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
An amazing batch of sophisticated soul tracks – and a favorite with the righteous groove scene! On the surface, the record's a combination of jazz and soul tracks in the same mode that you'd find on some of Nancy Wilson's albums for Capitol during the same time – but digging deeper, you'll find an undercurrent of politics, feminism, and social commentary delivered with surprising intensity. Marlena Shaw's voice is generally sweet, but she's set up in some extremely powerful arrangements by Richard Evans and Charles Stepney that recast even the simplest phrase into a whole new setting of strength and pride – and Bobby Miller of Dells fame also helped make the record what it is, and helped write some of the best songs on the record. The set includes Marlena's classic original reading of "Woman Of The Ghetto", which has been sampled by just about everyone, plus "California Soul", which has a nice hard break, and the tunes "Liberation Conversation", "Where Can I Go?", and the original version of "Go Away Little Boy" – as sweet a statement of womanhood if there ever was one!

John SurmanAnglo Sax ... LP
Deram, 1969. Very Good+ ... $29.99
An essential lost bit of British jazz – and the first record ever released by avant reed player John Surman! The album's an interesting mix of styles, with a split that runs right down the middle. The first 4 tracks on the record reflect a distinct Carribean style, and are a good indication of the strong West Indian influence on the British jazz tradition. Surman's playing pretty straight on those tracks, and he's joined by Mike Osborne on alto, Harry Miller on bass, and Russell Henderson on piano. The other 3 tracks on the album comprise one long suite, and the style is a much better indication of Surman's avant garde leanings, and of the larger ensemble style of the Brit jazz scene of the late 60's. He plays on those with Dave Holland, Kenny Wheeler, Harry Beckett, Paul Rutherford, and others – and the titles include "Incantation", "Episode", and "Dance". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousMagnificent – 62 Classics From The Cramps' Insane Collection – Long Gone In The World Of Incredibly Strange Music ... CD
Righteous (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $12.99
They're not lying about the title of this one – as the set is both "magnificent", and "insane" – an incredible array of offbeat singles from a time when it seemed like just about everybody and their pop had a small record label – and were able to turn out some really mad music that still defies description or categorization all these many years later! Given the Cramps' name on the set, there's a definite current of raunch rock here – but the music also opens up into so many different modes – from R&B, to novelty numbers, to hillbilly sounds, space age instrumentals, fuzz guitar jams, and lots lots more! The whole thing is every bit as wonderful as the previous versions in the series – and titles include "Bila" by Versatones, "The Blob" by The Five Blobs, "Oo Ee" by Ric Cartey, "Little Girl" by John & Jackie, "Wait Up Baby" by The Duals "You're Gone Baby" by Jimmy Lloyd, "Ghost Train" by The Electro-Tones, "Ghost Satellite" by Bob & Jerry, "Real Wild Child" by Ivan, "The UT" by The Sparkles, "The Heel" by Kay Martin, "Flip Top Box" by Dicky Doo & The Don'ts, "Hold It" by Buddy Starr & The Starliners, "Teen Twist" by Buddy Miller, and "The Chase (part 2)" by The Camelots.

VariousRockin Rhythm & Blues From Memphis Vol 2 ... CD
Stomper Time (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $12.99 18.99
An excellent assortment of rare soul from 60s Memphis – most of it from the great House Of The Blues label – an early contemporary of Stax Records, and almost a precursor to the later soul sound of Hi Records too – given that Willie Mitchell features in a fair bit of the singles collected on this set! The style's nice and raw – definitely with the R&B elements promised in the title, but already more directed to the soul styles that Memphis would pioneer in the 60s – especially at the level in which the city was at such a unique crossroads of the south! Rural blues elements get electrified, and folded into a mix of both solo and group styles, sometimes with an early current of funk – in a smashing set of 21 tracks that includes "I Believe To My Soul" by Bill Yates, "Search No More" by Jimmy Dotson, "Thirty Five Thirty" by Willie Mitchell, "Soul House" by Ed Pauling & The Exciters, "No Fooling Around" by Del Monte, "Good Grip" by Daddy Goodloe, "Sooner Or Later" by Larry Birdsong, "Catch That Teardrop" by Five Royales, "Don't Break My Heart" by Roy Brown, "Please Wait" by Charles Jammer, "Fee Bee" by Billy Adams, "Bowleg Twist" by Gene Bowlegs Miller, and "Squeeze Me" by The Aristocrats.

✨✧ VariousTruck Stop ... CD
Starday/Nashville, 1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
That's a mighty classy truck stop on the cover of this album – and the set's a mighty classy batch of trucker-themed tunes from the catalog of Starday Records! These aren't the shlocky truck country tunes of the 70s, but instead some great material from the postwar years – a time when the interstates were really opening up, and the role of the truck was about to surpass the role of the train. The tunes here all mark the new challenges of the time, sometimes with a good deal of humor – and titles include "Gears" by Johnny Bond, "Man Behind The Wheel" by George Morgan, "Long Haul Weekend" by The Willis Brothers, "Big Footed Dan" by Benny Martin, "Big Rig Guitar" by Joe Maphis, "Truck Driving Buddy" by Frankie Miller, "Sleeper Cab Blues" by Tom O'Neal, and "Pinball Machine" by Lonnie Irving.

CaravanWaterloo Lily (180 gram pressing – with download) ... LP
London/Universal (UK), 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $32.99
A bit of a shift in lineup for Caravan – but a set that has the group stepping out in all their fantastic proggy glory! This time around, Steve Miller provides some incredible work on electric piano, organ, and electric harpsichord – and the set also features some guest soprano sax work from Lol Coxhill, who'd later record wonderfully with Miller on Virgin Records – and whose presence here further underscores the qualities that make Caravan one of the jazziest groups of their prog generation! The classic core is wonderful too – Pye Hastings on guitars, Richard Sinclair on bass, and Richard Coughlan on drums – and the interplay between the latter two is fantastic, and really keeps the album driving onward. Titles include "Waterloo Lilly", "Songs & Signs", "Nothing At All", "Aristocracy", "The World Is Yours", and "The Love In Your Eye/To Catch Me A Brother/Subsultus/Debouchement/Tilbury Kecks".

Sons Of ChamplinLoosen Up Naturally ... LP
Capitol, 1969. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $7.99
Heavy rocking, with some nice drums – the kind of record that's kept the Sons in more crates than you'd think over the years! The set's a massive 2LP jammer that really overflows with niceness – often done in a heartfelt, blues-tinged rock style that's got traces of Little Feat and The Steve Miller Band – but the album's best remembered for the few tunes that have some nice funky changes, like the drums and bass on "Rooftop", or the jazzy scatting riffing sound of the 15 minute track "Freedom", or the hard jamming organ and horns in "Hello Sunlight". Other tracks include "Everywhere", "1982 A", "Black & Blue Rainbow", and "Get High". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousStudio One – Black Man's Pride 3 – None Shall Escape The Judgement Of The Almighty (with bonus download) ... LP
Studio One/Soul Jazz (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $29.99 32.99
A fantastic collection of righteous work from the 70s years of Studio One – tracks from a time when the label was giving voice to some of the deeper cultural strands of Jamaican music, including a fair bit of Rastafarian-inspired material – presented here by both bigger names at the label, and some much more obscure artists who only recorded briefly at the time! The package may well be the deepest in this excellent series from Soul Jazz – and like the rest, it not only offers up some killer music, but does so in a way that really understands its subject – and presents the tunes with copious notes to bring greater meaning to the message. Titles include "Whey No Dead" by Glen Miller, "When The Time Comes" by Zoot Simms, "Wrong Doers" by Sugar Minott, "Jehovah" by The Nightingales, "It's No Secret" by Alphonso Stewart, "Conscious Dread Lock" by Horace Andy, "Dread Oppression" by The Mellodies, "Jah Jah Help Us" by Big Joe, "Can't Catch Me" by Wailing Souls, "Get Up & Try" by Lloyd Jones & The Super Natural Six, "Satisfaction" by Errol Dunkley, "Give Natty Dread Glory" by Mr Manchester, and "Selassie Bandman" by The Manchesters.
