Chambers BrothersChambers Brothers' Greatest Hits (Columbia) ... LP
Columbia, Late 60s/Early 70s. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Heavy soul with a good dose of rock – the trademark sound of The Chambers Brothers, heard here during the height of their Columbia Records years! Although previously more of a folksy sort of combo, the group really took off during their time with Columbia – hitting whole new strides in their sound with a rich blend of contemporary influences, all supported by a deeply soulful sound that was rooted in tradition. The approach is heard most famously on their classic "Time Has Come Today" – but the whole set's great, and other cuts include the massively funky "Funky" – plus the tracks "Love Peace & Happiness", "Let's Do It", "In The Midnight Hour", "I Can't Turn You Loose", and "All Strung Out Over You". LP, Vinyl record album
(70s pressing. Cover has minimal wear.)

PersuasionsAcappella ... CD
Straight/Enigma Retro, 1969. Used ... $4.99
The title gets it right on this one, because The Persuasions sing all acappella – quite unique for soul music at such a time of heavy production! The group were a great throwback to an earlier era of vocal group harmony – and this album, recorded for Zappa's Straight label, gave them great exposure to a crossover audience that helped them thrive way into the 70s. There's a nicely rootsy feel here – almost what The Chambers Brothers were doing in the late 60s, but even more stripped down, due to the lack of instrumentation. The performance is a live one, and the recording really preserves the feel of the set – leaving in some of the introductions and crowd noise, which further authenticates their sound. Titles include "Drip Drop", "The Bounce", "Up On The Roof", "It's All Right", "Searchin' for My Baby", and "Don't Look Back". CD

✨✧ VariousSummer Of Soul – Or When The Revolution Could Not Be Televised ... CD
Legacy, 1969. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
The long-overdue release of a set of famous soul performances – all done at the Harlem Cultural Festival in the summer of 1969 – and issued here on record for the first time ever! The festival has become something of a legend – and finally got exposure on the screen, thanks to a directorial effort by Questlove. But in the film, most of the music was shown in shorter snippets – and this album corrects that by presenting the full performances of some of the key tunes in the movie, plus other great material too! The music is a great mix of soul, jazz, gospel, and Latin – and titles include "Are You Ready" and "Backlash Blues" by Nina Simone, "Together" by Ray Barretto, "Sing A Simple Song" and "Everyday People" by Sly & The Family Stone, "My Girl" by David Ruffin, "Hold On I'm Coming" by Herbie Mann, "Why I Sing The Blues" by BB King, "Uptown" by The Chambers Brothers, "Don't Cha Hear Me Callin To Ya" and "Aquarius/Let The Sunshine In" by The 5th Dimension, "Oh Happy Day" by Edwin Hawkins, "It's Been A Change" by The Staple Singers, "Heard It Through The Grapevine" by Gladys Knight & The Pips, and "Precious Lord Take My Hand" by Mavis Staples & Mahalia Jackson.

✨✧ Wayne ShorterAll Seeing Eye (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Blue Note, 1965. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the more avant-oriented 60s sessions cut by Wayne Shorter for Blue Note – a record that's not entirely part of the "new thing" generation, but which definitely has Shorter pushing the boundaries from his previous records for the label! The lineup here is a key batch of players who can handle both sides of the fence – inside and outside – Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Grachan Moncur on trombone, Herbie Hancock on piano, James Spaulding on alto, Ron Carter on bass, and Joe Chambers on drums – all players who were really breaking their own boundaries at the time. The set also features work from Wayne's Brother on one track – avant trumpeter Alan Shorter, who's only known for a few records under his own name, and who really brings a great sound to play here. At times, the record builds into a sound that's freer and more challenging than on some of Shorter's other albums from the time – but less in a free jazz mode, than with an overall sense of purpose that really keeps the message clear. Features all original compositions by the Shorter brothers – and cuts include "Chaos", "Face Of The Deep", "Mephistopheles", and "Genesis". LP, Vinyl record album
(Part of the Blue Note Tone Poet series – heavy cover and vinyl!)

✨✧ DVDBetty Davis – They Say I'm Different (DVD) ... DVD
MVD, 2020. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The legendary Betty Davis finally gets her due – emerging from the shadows of 70s funk, and finally sharing her story with the world! Betty gave the world a few fantastic records back in the day, but she's disappeared from the limelight for many years, partly out of choice – and this full length documentary finally presents her amazing story in all its detail, with plenty of help from the woman herself. The film mixes older footage, documentary shots, and animation – to tell the story not only of Betty's own music in the 70s, but also her association with Sly Stone, Miles Davis, Jimi Hendrix, The Chambers Brothers, and others of her time. The feature runs for 53 minutes, but the DVD also includes bonus interview material with Betty Davis, and an interview with director Phil Cox. DVD
