✨✧ Maceo & All The King's MenDoing Their Own Thing (Charly pressing) ... LP
Charly (UK), 1970. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great great funky stuff! This album was recorded during a period when Maceo left James Brown's band for a few years, and struck out on his own with a firey little combo that was every bit as funky as the JBs! The record captures the group at the height of their powers, and it's a must, must, must-have for any fan of the the James Brown sound – as it's got lots of hard drums, rumbling basslines, and some killer work on funky horns! Funny, funky, and a little bit jazzy too – and with the cuts "Funky Women", "Got to Getcha", "Southwick", "I Remember Mr Banks", "Shake It Baby", and "Better Half". Reissued with the original cover!

✨✧ Dee Dee BridgewaterVictim Of Love ... CD
Verve/Charly (UK), 1990. Used ... $6.99
A seminal album from Dee Dee Bridgewater – a set that carries forward some of the soul styles she had at the start of the 80s, but one that also points the way towards her return to jazz in the 90s as well! The production is fairly electric – lots of keyboards and guitars, and mostly beats in the rhythms – and most tunes are laidback, pushing Dee Dee into the kind of sophistic-soul/jazz diva territory shared by contemporaries like Phyllis Hyman or Marlena Shaw at the same point in their careers. Titles include "Till The Next Somewhere" – a duet with Ray Charles – plus "Wall Of Love", "Love Takes Chances", "Sunset & Blue", "Can't We Try Love Again", "Heartache Caravan", and "I Go My Way". CD

Johnny CashOriginal Sun Albums 1957 to 1964 (8CD set) ... CD
Sun/Charly (UK), Late 50s. New Copy 8CD ... $29.99
A massive collection of early work from Johnny Cash – a set that features the bulk of his early work for Sun Records, plus rare material too – all in a book-style format with a nice set of notes and rare images! The music alone is great – as Johnny works here with his initial Tennesse Three combo – very spare, moody, and rhythmic – a superb foil to Johnny's vocals, and his really fantastic sense of a lyric – already fantastic here, right at the start! And Sun Records owner Sam Phillips knew he had a good thing when he had it – because he recorded so much material on Johnny, he was able to keep issuing albums after Cash had moved to Columbia Records – as you'll see here in the package, which references Sun albums up to the 60s. 107 tracks in all – and full artwork reproductions of every record!

FunkadelicElectric Spanking Of War Babies (deluxe CD mediabook edition – with bonus track) ... CD
Warner/Charly (UK), 1980. Used ... $9.99
A surprisingly wonderful record! Back in the day, we remember that we didn't like these later P-Funk albums because they weren't as druggy, trippy, or guitar heavy as the early stuff. Now, though, they sound pretty darn sweet to our ears – especially this one, which has lots of cool pre-electro grooves with sweet keyboards, vocoder vocals, and spacey basslines that blow out in deep rich waves of funky soul. The whole thing's an amazing evolution of the George Clinton groove – and titles include "Electric Spanking Of War Babies", "Funk Gets Stronger", "Shockwaves", "Icka-prick", "Brettino's Bounce", and a bonus instrumental version of "Electric Spanking Of War Babies". Nice Pedro Bell cover, too! CD

FunkadelicUncle Jam Wants You (UK pressing) ... CD
Warner/Charly (UK), 1979. New Copy ... $9.99
One of our favorite Funkadelic albums ever – a tightly grooving classic that never lets up at all! There's a sense of perfection to everything here – one that really gets the group past their tripped-out early years, and firmly into the sublime territory George Clinton hit with Parliament – an amazing sound that's wrapped up perfectly on every single track – grooves that definitely raised the bar for a huge amount of mainstream funk acts who were popping up at the time. Production is never too slick, and there's still lots of tasty guitar licks wrapped up in the mix – and titles include the classics "Freak Of The Week" and "Not Just Knee Deep" – plus "Field Maneuvers", "Holly Wants To Go To California", and "Foot Soldiers".

Audio Fidelity/Charly (UK), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A very cool little record – a limited 12" single that features the sublime moog groover "Popcorn" – a tune that was cut famously by Hot Butter in the early 70s, but which is served up here in the original version by its creator, moog maestro Gershon Kingsley – a version that's even cooler and spacier than the hit! The cut is followed by "The First Step" – a moon-themed number that mixes moogy keyboard lines with almost a John Barry/James Bond sort of theme! 12-inch, Vinyl record

A killer collection of work by Garnet Mimms – one of our favorite soul singers of the 60s, and a talent that we'd rank in the highest of the high in our soul book! The set is a well-done batch of tunes with a focus on groovers by Garnet – and includes some sock-hard numbers from his years at Veep and United Artists during the mid 60s. There's a total of 16 tracks in all, and titles include "All About Love", "Roll With The Punches", "It Won't Hurt", "Only Your Love", "I Keep Wanting You", "Prove It To Me", "One Woman Man", and "Welcome Home".

Archie Shepp & The Full Moon EnsembleLive In Antibes Vol 1 & 2 ... CD
BYG/Charly (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $18.99 19.98
A seminal live set from tenorist Archie Shepp – and some of his freest, least-structured material ever! Shepp's still a righteous force here on his horn, but there also seems to be equal emphasis on the contributions of all members of the group – woven together in a really rich tapestry of sound, but with less of the structuring righteous concepts of some of Archie's other work – especially his sides for Impulse. Shepp had really been experiencing some new freedoms on the French scene of the late 60s – even more so than in the US avant outfield – and you can definitely hear him taking flight here, with a like-minded group of players that includes Clifford Thornton on trombone and shenai, Alan Shorter on flugelhorn, Joseph Dujean on guitar, Beb Guerin on bass, and Claud Delcloo on drums. This first part of the live set features one long track – "The Early Bird" – a slow building number that goes increasingly outside as it progresses, featuring some very over the top solo work from Shepp, who also plays a bit of piano on the set! Piano returns on "Huru" – another long track that has Shepp laying down these beautiful blocky passages that are surprisingly personal amidst the freer energy of the group. Great package – with heavy book-styled cover, new notes, and lots of photos! CD

Gene SimmonsI Done Told You ... CD
Sun/Charly (UK), Late 50s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Great early work from Gene Simmons – a Memphis singer best known for a later Halloween novelty record, but an artist here who's at the prime of his youthful powers – and very much an important part of the early sound of Sun Records! Gene was maybe getting more of his songs recorded by other artists at the time, but he's also a hell of a singer too – with a great mix of blues and hillbilly roots, fused into a spare style that really brings out the moodier elements in his music, and which is light years from more mainstream rock and pop – those farther reaches that always yield plenty, if you know where to dig into the Sun Records catalog! The set features 27 tracks from these early years, including some alternates too – and titles include "Drinkin Wine", "Juicy Fruit", "Mom & Pop", "Money Money Money", "I Done Told You", "Crazy Woman", "If I'm Not Wanted", "Drinkin Scotch", "Down On The Border", "Gene's Jumpin Jive", "You Can't Break The Chains Of Love", and "Peroxide Blonde & A Hopped Up Model Ford".

Sansu/Charly (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $14.99 17.98
Think you know Huey Piano Smith? Think again – as this massively overstuffed set shows that there's plenty more to discover! Instead of Huey's over-reissued New Orleans tracks from the early years, this package brings together late 60s soul and raw 70s funk – a lesser-known side of Smith's career, and proof that he had plenty of greatness to offer well into the 70s! There's still plenty of heavy Crescent City soul at the bottom of the grooves – but Huey also really takes off in a fast flurry of new styles too – some modes that get increasingly hip on the second half of the collection, as the tunes take on plenty of wonderful 70s funk elements. As with other Charly collections, there's a huge amount of material here – a whopping 45 tracks, packaged in a book-styled cover with a very vivid booklet – and titles that include "Ballad Of A Black Man", "The Whatcha Call Em (ext version)", "Don't You Just Know It", "Funky Funky Football", "High Blood Pressure", "Coo Coo Over You", "You Ain't No Hippie", "Smile For Me", "Twowaypockaway (parts 1 & 2)", "Eight Bars Of Amen", "Epitaph Of Uncle Tom", "Bury Me Dead", "Baby You Hurt Me", "Young Blood", and "We Like Mambo".

Bobby Taylor & The VancouversFind My Way Back ... CD
Charly/Motorcity (UK), 1990. Used ... $6.99
A surprising reunion for Bobby Taylor & The Vancouvers – part of the late 80s run of Motorcity titles that offered new recordings of famous Motown artists! The set's definitely different than Bobby's work from the group in the 60s, but still pretty great – and Taylor's lead has this raspy charm amidst the album's smoother modern soul arrangements – a quality that's especially nice on the mellower cuts. Curiously, the backing vocals often seem to be female chorus singers, not the harmonies you might expect from the old days – and titles include "All Strung Out", "Does Your Mama Know About Me", "Find My Way Back", "Window Of My Heart", "Down To Love Town", and "Do Unto Others".

Charly (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $8.99 11.98
The story of one of the most legendary soul clubs in the UK – home to the great wave of Northern Soul enthusiasm that burst big in the 60s – plus a fair bit of hanky panky as well! This collection shows a decidedly raw side of the club's roots – American soul from the 60s, plus a fair bit of R&B as well – a groove that's rougher than you might find on other Northern Soul collections – which often tend towards some of the tighter Detroit productions of the period. The CD features a whopping 28 tracks in all – with lots of tracks from Chicago and the Motor City – and titles include "Road Runner" by Bo Diddley, "Good Times" by Gene Chandler, "Turn On Your Lovelight" by Bobby Blue Bland, "Do The 45" by The Sharpees, "Get Down With It" by Bobby Marchan, "I Spy For The FBI" by Jamo Thomas, "And Get Away" by The Esquires, "I Can't See Your Love" by The Ballads, "Searchin" by Alvin Robinson, and "You Shot Me Through The Grease" by Alvin Cash.

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!

Malcolm Yelvington may not be the best-known name at the legendary Sun Records – and his name certainly doesn't flow off the tongue like Elvis Presley – but back in the early years of the label, he definitely cut the kind of music that Sam Phillips opened the studio to record! The style here is right on the cusp of early rock and roll – hillbilly turning into rockabilly, as a great demonstration of how many southern singers were able to handle the balance right at the time that Elvis was making it work in the mainstream! The production here is great – maybe deeper and grittier than some of the bigger Sun Records hits of the time – and if you know the kind of rewards that the farther reaches of the label in the 50s can yield, then you'll definitely know what you're in store for here. 26 tracks in all – with titles that include "Trumpet", "I've Got The Blues", "Gonna Have Myself A Ball", "Rockin With My Baby", "Just Rolling Along", "Drinkin Wine Spoo Dee O Dee, "I Ask You To Stay", "First & Last Love", "Going To The See", and "Goodbye Marie".

A searing set of vintage soul cuts – brought together in honor of the legendary Wigan Casino – one of the most important clubs in the UK Northern Soul scene of the 70s! For the uninitiated, Wigan was a hotbed of upbeat rare soul cuts – overlooked American goodies from both the previous decade and more recent years – often with a strong focus on deeper soul vocals, which meant some strong entries from the southern scene as well!

A totally killer collection of work from the early solo years of Chicago soul genius Jerry Butler – a package that features his singles for the Vee Jay label, but at a level that's way more than hits – as the whole thing features lots of unusual tunes, and even rare b-sides too! Jerry was a groundbreaking singer at this point in his career – a guy with all the class and coolness of Nat King Cole or Billy Eckstine, but more more of a soul singer overall – one whose work in these tracks brought a new level of maturity to the music, and helped pave the way for generations of artists to come! Vee Jay really gave Jerry the top-shelf treatment – the right level of pride and power to match his voice – and the 2CD set features 56 tracks in all, with a nice booklet of notes, in a hardback cover. Titles include "I Dont' Want To Hear It Any More", "Strawberries", "Where's The Girl", "It's Too Late", "You Can Run But You Can't Hide", "Find Another Girl", "I See A Fool", "I Found A Love", "He Will Break Your Heart", "Couldn't Go To Sleep", "I Was Wrong", "I Can't Stand To See You Cry", "Just For You", "Smile", and "How Beautifully You Lie".

The full scope of genius from the legendary Alvin Cash – not just his 60s gritty groovers, but a host of later funk tracks as well – all packaged into a beautiful book-styled package! Cash is one of our favorite Chicago artists ever – a dancer by trade, but a flamboyant personality who always managed to make his way center stage – whether live or in the recording studio! The set begins with early "twine" numbers from Alvin – some romping heavy soul tracks that have a very deep bottom, and a raw sound that's equal part R&B and Chicago soul – definitely tuned towards the dancefloor crowd that was a natural fit for Cash's energy. As the set moves on, it then picks up some wicked late 60s singles for the Toddlin Town label, and also includes some excellent early 70s groovers for Sound Stage Seven – some of Alvin's hardest, heaviest numbers ever. The set features work by Alvin Cash with The Registers, Hundred Dollar Bills, The Crawlers, and Scott Brothers Orchestra – and titles include "Keep On Dancing (parts 1 & 2)", "Funky 69", "Moanin & Groanin", "Doin The Creep", "It's Party Time", "Funky Washing Machine", "Alvin's Doin His Thing", "Funky Street", "Doin The Ali Shuffle", "Whip It On Me", "The Charge", "Boston Monkey", "The Philly Freeze", "Alvin's Boogaloo", "Let's Do Some Good Timing", "The Bump", "Twine Time", "Twine Awhile", "The Barracuda", and "You Shot Me Through The Grease".

A fantastic package that explores the full range of genius on the legendary avant label BYG/Actuel – one of the most important European imprints at the end of the 60s! Actuel was home to some of the best avant garde jazz coming out of Paris in the late 60s and early 70s – an especially important document of the post-68 revolution in European music – at a time when so many American players where showing up in France, and finding great opportunities in the new freedoms of the scene! The package features seminal sides from US avant musicians – like Steve Lacy, Anthony Braxton, Clifford Thornton, Don Cherry, Jimmy Lyons, Archie Shepp, Sonny Sharrock, Sunny Murray, Grachan Moncur III, and The Art Ensemble Of Chicago – and it also features work by European musicians like Claude Delcloo and Jacques Coursil, plus genre-busting work by MEV and Gong as well. The 3CD box features a 48 page book – with lots of great illustrations, and notes from Thurston Moore and Byron Coley – and the set features 26 long tracks in all! CD

Seminal soul from one of Chicago's greatest labels in the 60s – the One-Der-Ful/Mar-V-Lus imprints, plus tracks from related Toddlin Town too – home to some of the best indie work at the time! The quality here is right up there with the best you'd hear from Chess, Okeh, or Brunswick in the 60s – no surprise, since the pair of labels shared lots of similar talents with the bigger companies – as well as session men, songwriters, and producers too! The full scope of Chicago soul is really covered here – upbeat groovers for the dancefloor, heartfelt ballads with great harmonies, and some of the harder-edged bluesy numbers that really helped put One-Der-Ful on the map! There's also some key early examples of funk – proof that in the 60s, Chicago was one of the hippest scenes in the world – and the set comes with 2 CDs, nestled in a hardback booklet of notes and photos – with a whopping 50 tracks in all. Titles include "Tired Of Being Lonely" by The Sharpees, "Without You" by The Ulti-Mations, "That's How It Is" by Otis Clay, "Keep On Dancin" by Alvin Cash, "The Funky Judge" by Bull & The Matadors, "I Get A Groove" by Thomas East & The Fabulous Playboys, "Damper Down" by Bobby Davis, "The Town I Live In" by McKinley Mitchell, "Come Back Home" by Beny Turner, "Master Key" by Harold Burrage, "If I Could Live My Life All Over" by Dorothy Prince, "You Told A Lie" by Johnny Sayles, "New Girl" by The Accents, and "Don't You Worry" by Joe & Mack.

VariousAfrica Airways 4 – Disco Funk Touchdown 1976 to 1983 (with bonus download) ... LP
Africa Seven (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $19.99
We've had some great trips on Africa Airways in recent years – and this sweet fourth set proves once again that the fun lies in the journey, not the destination! As before, the cuts here share a lot more with American funk than you might think – especially the tight late 70s style with lots of basslines at the bottom, and some warmly jazzy currents in the instrumentation – which often serve to provide a superb setting for the vocals over the top – sometimes just sing-song chorus bits, but merged perfectly with the grooves! Tracks here come from French labels like Fiesta and Sonodisc, and there's definitely some of that criss-crossing between West African and Parisian modes going on – on titles that include "Sun Explosion" by Manu Dibango, "Nassa Nassa" by Uta Bella, "Nimele Bolo" by Charly Kingson, "Africain" by Momo Joseph, "Biram" by Kemayo & K-System, "Soul Magabe" by Pierre Didy Tchakounte, "Funny Saga" by The Monsters, and "Tinini Yanana" by Jake Sollo.

✨✧ Yancy KorossyIdentification ... CD
MPS (Japan), 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Classic bit of piano jazz on MPS – and one of the few albums to get Western exposure for Romanian pianist Yancy Korossy! Korossy's a tremendous talent on the keys – schooled in the ways of postwar modernists from the US, but also able to swing with a fluid groove that makes him a great fit for the sound of Saba/MPS at this point. Part of that fit is the warmth of the rhythm section – which features JA Rettenbacher on bass and Charly Antolini snapping away on drums – sounding especially great on the harder break track "Sorrow", and the funky "I'm On My Way", a real MPS classic! Other titles include "Stella By Starlight", "Identification", "All The Things You Are", and "Bye Bye Blackbird". CD

✨✧ Baden PowellGolden Hour Of Baden Powell ... LP
MPS (Japan), Late 60s. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An extended collection of material from one of Baden Powell's first great bossa sessions in Europe – recorded in a light and lively MPS mode that's a bit different than some of his work at the time in Brazil! Rhythm is by the team of Eberhard Weber on bass and Charly Antolini on drums – both players with non-bossa roots, but who push Powell's groove into some slightly new directions – almost hailing the Brazilian influence that would show up even more strongly in European jazz in years to come! Sidney Smith also adds a bit of flute into some of the tracks on the album – underscoring the moodier moments with a subtle tone next to Powell's more pronounced guitar – and the whole thing's got a sense of poise, grace, and beauty that's simply tremendous! Titles include "Euridice", "Consolacao", "Feitinha Pro Poeta", "Dindi", "Reza", "Samba Triste", and "All The Things You Are". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousFuture Sound Of MPS – From Europe With Jazz ... CD
MPS (Japan), 1970s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A stunning collection of electric 70s jazz funk from the legendary MPS label! The set covers some of the same territory as the Between or Beyond The Black Forest sets – with a focus on keyboard-driven funky numbers, often with that choppy hard-hitting sound that's become such a favorite of beat heads over the past few years – but as any fan of MPS will know, the catalog's a very deep one, filled with excellent funky goodies that have yet to be discovered, a nice batch of which you'll find on this set! There's a great bunch of cuts on the set that have not been reissued – and as a whole, the compilation's one of the freshest batches of jazz funk we've heard in ages! Titles include "Another Revolution" by Johnny Teupen, "Maiden Voyage" by Karin Krog, "Curtis" by Smoke, "Ballad Garden & Palm Dreams" by Volker Kreigel, "Crazy Girl" by Michal Urbaniak & Tomasz Stanko, "Like A Swimming Pool" by Charly Antolini, "Avoid The Year of The Monkey" by Charlie Mariano, "African Flute" by Clare Fischer, "Nigerian Numberuma" by George Duke, and "One String More" by Joachim Kuhn.

✨✧ VariousMr Joe's Jambalaya/Loaded Down With The Blues ... CD
Snapper (UK), Late 50s/1960s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A triple-length set – one that brings together two classic Charly Records compilations! The bulk of the set is from the great 2LP collection Mr Joe's Jambalaya – an amazing collection of New Orleans soul from the legendary Minit and Instant labels – both imprints under the guidance of producer Joe Banashak – the "Mr Joe" in the title! The work here includes a good number of lesser-known gems from the Crescent City – mixed in with a few key classics that are really well-chosen numbers that illustrate the kind of important influence that New Orleans would have on soul music for generations to come! Grooves are mostly gritty, with more than a few hints of funk in the mix – and there's plenty of tracks that are filled with that tripling rhythmic mode that was quite specific to New Orleans at the time. Titles include "I Need Money" by Lee Dorsey, "The Sad One" by Eddie Lang, "The La La Man (part 1)" by Oliver Morgan, "Go Back Home" by Allen Toussaint & The Stokes, "Pass The Hatchet (part 1)" by Roger & The Gypsies, "It Will Stand" by The Showmen, "I'm Gonna Put Some Hurt On You" by Raymond Lewis, "In The Night" by Chucik Carbo, "Green Door" by Eskew Reeder, "Something You Got" by Barbara George, and "Beverly Baby" by Allen & Allen. The remaining third of the package is from the collection Loaded Down With The Blues – another compilation of Joe Banashak recordings, but one that focuses a bit more on gritty, bluesy material – mostly from the late 50s and early 60s. Titles include "Tight Like That" by Edgar Blancahrd, "Loaded Down" by Matthew Boogie Jake Jacobs, "Way In The Middle Of The Night" by Nolan Pitts, "Ain't Broke Ain't Hungry" by Polka Dot Slim, "Moanin & Screamin" by Diamond Joe, and "Nervous Condition" by The Pitter Pats. 2CDs, and 46 tracks in all!

✨✧ VariousSouthern Soul Shake – SSS Soul Survey/Music City Soul ... CD
Snapper (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A treasure trove of Tennessee soul – a package that brings together two classic compilations on Charly Records, along with a host of rare bonus tracks too! The original release of Music City Soul and SSS Soul Survey were not only the kind of sets that first got Charly recognition as a key label for reissuing soul – but they also drew much-needed focus to the efforts of the Nashville labels working at the end of the 60s – surprising powerhouses for soul music, even though much of their efforts failed to chart at the time! As you'll hear in this set, labels like SSS International, Silver Fox, and Minaret were filled with deep soul gems – the kind of music you'd normally expect to hear from Memphis or Muscle Shoals – but which was coming out in droves from Music City during a brief musical moment at the end of the 60s. The 2CD set features a whopping 50 tracks in all – with titles that include "Baby You Got It" by Clarence Murray, "The Game Of Love" by Willie Hobbs, "I Have No One" by Big John Hamilton, "Action Speaks Louder Than Words" by Reuben Bell, "Soul Ranger" by Clifford Curry, "The Night The Angels Cried" by Johnny Dynamite, "Natural Soul Brother" by Danny White, "Shell Of A Woman" by Doris Allen, "Sunday Morning Coming Down" by Hank Ballard, "I Almost Called Your Name" by Johnny Soul, "Soulshake" by Peggy Scott & Jo Jo Benson, "Medley Of Soul" by Big Al Downing, "My Train's Coming In" by Betty Lavette, "All Night Long" by T Bone Walker, "My Ancestors" by Willie Charles Gray, and "The Pleasure Of My Woman" by Georgie Boy.
