VariousLord Have Mercy – The Soulful Gospel Of Checker Records ... CD
Playback, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $9.99
A much-needed look at an under-exposed side of the legendary Chess Records – the label's incredible run of gospel records, most of which were every bit as great as their Chicago soul sessions! This package is the first to really dig into that rich history – and has a wonderful focus on the grittier, funkier, groovier side of the label's catalog – served up here in a mix of rare album tracks, from records that have never been reissued – plus more stunners from funky 45s, most of which have been overlooked by soul collectors over the years. And yes, there's a spiritual message to these tracks, but it's often delivered with a very secular style – both in the vocals and instrumentation – as you'll hear on "Lord Keep Me Day By Day" by The Gospel Six, "Trying To Get Ready" by The Violinaires, "Soon I Will Be Done" by East St Louis Gospelettes, "Please Lord" by The Messiahs Of Glory, "Crying Pity & A Shame" by Salem Travelers, "It's So Good To Be Alive" by The William Singers, "Troubles" by Estella Burke, "The Whole World Is Watching" by Charlie Brown, "Same Old Bag" by Stevie Hawkins, and "Bless Me" by The Inspirational Singers.

2 great duets from the team of Fontella and Bobby – one of the lesser known pairs to record in the style for Chess! Both cuts are hard-hitting, sock-soul numbers – really grooving with a blend of southern deep and Chicago hard – coming off well in a mode that brings out the best in both singers! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Fantastic bit of soul by Gene Chandler, and despite the "hit" referred to in the title, the album's a great batch of stuff that doesn't really see the light of day that often! Includes his great remake of "Rainbow", titled "Rainbow 65", and featuring some amazing live material. Other nice ones include "Just Be True", "A Man's Temptation", "Night Owl", and "You Threw A Lucky Punch". Classic Chicago soul! LP, Vinyl record album

Tab SmithKeeping Tab ... LP
Checker, Early 60s. Very Good ... $6.99
Very nice set of moody mellow late-nite tracks from Chicago tenorist Tab Smith. Although Smith played for years in bands such as those of Basie and Lucky Millinder, this is one of the few records he ever cut under his own name. The session's got Smith fronting solos with uncredited backing by a larger group that gives him the same dreamy feel as some of the tenor/orchestral sessions by Johnny Hodges or Ben Webster on Verve. Titles include "Don't Play With Love", "Tab's Blues", and "Lady In Red". LP, Vinyl record album

"Boo Ga Loo Baby" is a perfect example of the late 60's sock boogaloo soul style, and it's sung beautifully by Tommy & Cleve, who both have voices that range up there with Mel & Tim for greatness. Gene Redd produced both sides, and they're both mighty tasty! 7-inch, Vinyl record

ViolinairesGroovin With Jesus (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Checker, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
Damn funky gospel from The Violinaires – easily one of the hippest spiritual albums you could ever hope to find on Chess! The groove here is gritty Chicago funk, put together by Gene Barge with lots of heavy bass on the bottom – in a blend that's somewhere between the Cadet/Concept funk used with Chess bluesmen at the time, and some of the bassy bottom modes that Norman Whitfield was using over at Motown! The grooves are more than enough to send this one out to anyone with a secular soul sensibility – and titles include "No Back Door", "Grooving With Jesus", "Let Us Pray", "Let The Sunshine In", "We Got To Live Together", and "Take Me".

Madness from Andre – a side that you don't often hear on record! "Mrs Mother" is kind of a tongue in cheek dedication to mothers everywhere – done with Andre speaking over the top of a sad and bluesy strings-drenched backing! A nice one to buy for your mom in May! "Cadillac Jack" is a vamping number that hints at funk, but which kind of sticks into a bluesy mode – Andre talking again over the top, using a great raspy sort of vocal to tell the story of Cadillac Jack! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Great work from the team of Maurice and Mac – an obscure late 60s hard-soul team with an approach that was a lot like James & Bobby Purify! This one's even better – as the record was produced and played by Rick Hall and the Fame studios staff – who give both sides a fantastic deep soul approach that really suits the great vocals of the pair! "Why Don't You Try Me" has a soaring organ at the beginning, and a nice rolling groove that features Maurice and Mac trading off on the vocal parts! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Checker, 1960. Very Good- ... Out Of Stock
Have guitar, will travel – and back in the day, Bo Diddley was going pretty darn far with great material like this! The album's a real standout, even in the classic Chess catalog of the early years –no filler, no covers, just all original material by Bo Diddley – done in that unique Diddley blend of fast riffing guitar, playful vocals, and odd rhythms that often chug along at a really frenetic pace, especially in these pre-funk years! A key influence on funky music for many years to come, and a record that explodes from the very first note – on a set of original tracks that include "Run Diddley Diddley", "Mumblin Guitar", "Say Man, Back Again", "Come On Baby", "Dancing Girl", "She's Alright", and "Cops & Robbers". LP, Vinyl record album

Bo Diddley/Chuck BerryTwo Great Guitars ... LP
Chess, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $39.99
Bo Diddley and Chuck Berry come together in a really unique album for Chess Records in the 60s – and that's saying a lot, given all the groundbreaking sounds we heard from that label at the time! The format is quite unusual – as each side features a long instrumental jam that really lets the guitarists work out their differences – in modes that are almost proto-funk more than blues, rock, or soul – with lots of wicked guitar lines that are way ahead of their time in terms of recording space! The long tracks are "Chuck's Beat" and "Bo's Beat" – but the duo also shine brilliantly on the shorter tunes "Liverpool Drive" and "When The Saints Go Marching In". LP, Vinyl record album
(Checker piece label pressing – nice and heavy!)

Lewis ConnectionLewis Connection (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
P-Vine (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $22.99
Rare funk from the same Minneapolis scene that gave the world Prince – a legendary indie set from the end of the 70s, put together by Lewis brothers Pierre and Andre! Despite their French names, the duo have a mighty American groove on the set – a wicked approach to funk that's very much in the best ensemble mode of the period – but leaner too, given the smaller lineup, and relatively sparse production – which makes most of the record bristle like some rare boogie 45! Vocals are by the brothers, plus female singer Barbara Bolar, and later Prince-mate Sonny Thompson – and Prince himself even adds in some slight magic to one cut on the set. Titles include "Dynamic Duo", "Got To Be Something", "Get Up", "Higher", "Feel Good To Ya", and "Mr G". (And for the record, the group's name on the cover was originally the Lewis Conection – but our spell checker has the title listed with the regular spelling!) CD

VariousAction – The Songs Of Tommy Boyce & Bobby Hart ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $14.99 19.99
A killer tribute to the 60s songcraft of Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart – who are probably best-known as the songwriters behind many songs by The Monkees – but they're terrific performers in their own right, on top of penning tunes for the creme of the 60s crop! This set goes a long way towards demonstrating their range. It's got all great songs by legendary groups and singers – including veterans like Fats Domino and Chubby Checker – who were seeking fresh heat at the time – plus great stuff by Boyce & Hart themselves, Paul Revere & The Raiders, Dino, Desi & Billy, The Shangri-Las, The Ikettes, The Standells, The Honeybeats and more! Includes "Valleri" by The Monkees, I Can't Get Him Out Of My Mind" by Sandra Dee, "(He's Gonna Be) Fine Fine Fine" by The Ikettes, "She" by Del Shannon, "Lazy Elsie Molly" by Chubby Checker, "Too Many Teardrops" by Bobby Hart, "Be My Guest" by Fats Domino, "Beverly Jean" by Curtis Lee and more. 26 in all.

VariousGet The Holy Funk – Jewel Spiritual Groovers ... CD
P-Vine (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $24.99
Fantastic funky gospel from the Jewel Records label – one of the few other companies besides Chess Records who could effortlessly mix spiritual and secular sounds! As with some of the best Chess/Checker gospel of this period, there's a groove here that feels more like mainstream soul of the period – no over-reaching choirs, or over-sold religion – and instead some wickedly sharp, soulful lyrics that are set to styles that are a mixture of deep soul, harmony soul, and plenty of righteous funk! So many of these nuggets were passed over back in the day – too gospel for soul collectors, and too funky for gospel fans – but they work together perfectly here in this overstuffed collection – put together with a perfect ear for all the best bits in the Jewel catalog. Titles include "This Little Light Of Mine" by Clarence Fountain, "Trouble's Brewin" by The Meditation Singers, "Mama Said Thank You" by Albertina Walker, "He'll See You Through" by Archie Dale & The Tones Of Joy, "Brotherly Love" by BPS Revolution, "Keep On Using Me Jesus" by Bill Moss & The Celestials, "The Right Road Now" by Keith Barrow, "No More Ghettoes In America" by Stanley Wilson, "Don't Forget The Bridge" by Mighty Sons Of Glory, "Heaven Help Us All" by Dorothy Norwood, and "Trying Times" by Ernest Franklin.

✨✧ VariousSacred Soul – Dave Hamilton's Raw Detroit Gospel 1969 to 1974 ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
The lost gospel music legacy of Detroit producer Dave Hamilton – a key force in funk and soul in the Motor City in the 60s – where he developed an amazing sound that he also brought to his spiritual recordings as well! Dave's approach was always grittier than that of Motown or some of the sweeter labels in the city – as you might have heard on some of the great Ace/Kent collections of his rare singles and unissued recordings over the years – all compilations that really lay the groundwork for this one, which is brimming over with raw gospel material from a very soulful stretch in the genre! The work here is like the hippest soul gospel recorded by Chess/Checker or Jewel/Paula at the same time – strongly associated with secular soul in terms of instrumentation, arrangements, and production – and graced with message-oriented lyrics that are perfect for the heady times of the late 60s and early 70s. Some of the tracks were issued on the Sacred Sounds label back in the day, and are mixed with some others found in Hamilton's archives – all given the usual great support by Ace with a big booklet of notes and photos. Titles include "Grown Old & Feeble" by The Soul Inspirers, "I Still Remember" by Umble Faith, "Someday We'll Be Together" by The National Independent Singers, "Savoir On The Throne" by Mr Bo, "Pressing On" by The Silver Harps, "I'm Not Ready To Die" by The Scott Singers, "Down Here Praying" by The Detroit Silvertones, "The Little Light" by The Fantastic Voices Of Joy, "I Heard A Voice (part 1)" by Sensational Angelettes, "If I Had My Way" by OC Tolbert & Clara White Houston, and "Life's Pathway" by Rev Evans.

Cameo/Abkco, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 12.99
A great set of groovers from the Cameo/Parkway label – a company that gave the world the biggest twist record of the 60s, but which also was perfectly poised to deliver all sorts of other upbeat tracks as well! The label was in Philly – a huge dance town in the early days of soul and rock – and the set list here is filled with the kind of cuts that were Philadelphia's answer to the rising sound of Motown – the roots of the Northern Soul sound that would be followed by soul collectors for decades! These aren't novelty hits, but upbeat cuts that groove plenty – most by soul artists, a few by pop singers – but all given the kind of tight instrumentation and strong studio handling that made the Philly scene such a standout. 22 tracks in all – including "Shimmy Shimmy" and "The Wah Watusi" by The Orlons, "Bristol Stomp" and "You Can't Sit Down" by the Dovells, "Mashed Potato Time" and "Do The Bird" by Dee Dee Sharp, "The 81" by Candy & The Kisses, "The Mash" by Tony Young & The Hippies, "Mexican Hat Rock" by The Applejacks, "Baby Do The Frog" by The Dardenelles, "The Swim (part 1)" by The Marlins, "Slow Twistin" by Chubby Checker & Dee Dee Sharp, "The Third House" by Bobby Rydell, "When You Dance" by The Turbans, "Everybody South Street" by The Taffys, "The Popeye Waddle" by Don Covay, and yes, "The Twist" by Chubby Checker.

Great stuff by this sublime Swedish jazz singer! Alice Babs has a cool breezy vocal style – one that graced more than a few albums by the time of this 1973 session, including great sets with both American and Swedish backup groups. This one features Alice singing with the orchestra of Nils Lindberg – in a sophisticated jazzy mode that's a bit like some of the styles used by singers like Monica Zetterlund or Sheila Jordan during the early 70s, but perhaps a bit more flowery. The album features her jazz dance version of "Been To Canaan", done with some heavily grooving congas in the mix – plus the tracks "Song For The Dreamer", "Checkered Hat", "Hody", and "A Hundred Years From Today". CD also features 2 bonus tracks – "Say When" and "Natural Affection". CD

A rare European-only collection of work by Booker T & The MGs – and one that features a fair bit of live material, too – 7 of the album's 12 tracks – which almost makes the whole thing stand out like some obscure live record from the group! There's a definite sense of sear to the live cuts that moves way past the studio material – a sharp edge that has some heavier drumming and lots of dark edges on the guitar and organ parts – still played with all the tightness of the group's famous singles, but maybe some of the headier styles you'd guess from their image on the cover. Live cuts include "Outrage", Booker Loo", "Gimme Some Lovin", "Tic Tac Toe", "Hip Hug Her", and "Greeen Onions" – and studio tracks include "Mo Onions", "My Sweet Potato", "Chinese Checkers", and "One Mint Julep".

Ron GeesinPot-Boilers – Soundtracks To Stephen Dwoskin Films 1966 to 1970 ... LP
Trunk (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $23.99
The great Ron Geesin is a man of many talents – UK studio genius, ace composer, arranger, and more – with ties to worlds that include film music, sound library work, easy listening, and even collaborations with Pink Floyd! The music here is all from films by underground director Stephen Dwoskin – a British filmmaker who was very influenced by the avant film scene in New York – and who, like some of the best of those artists, really saw music as a key component to his overall work! Gavin Bryars later scored some of Dwoskin's 70s efforts – but this set brings together mindblowing music by Geesin – work that, like Ron at his best on other records, is often as experimentally sonic as it is musical – created from elements that are almost impossible to discern, once they get the Geesin touch – and presented here in a long-overdue musical document of five films that have now crumbled to the ashes of time. Selections include "Chinese Checkers", "Alone", "Pot Boiler", "Feet", and "Moment". LP, Vinyl record album

Lee KonitzLee Konitz Duets ... LP
Milestone, 1967. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $29.99
An interesting concept record, with Konitz approaching a variety of material, much of it written by his collaborators, in wide open duet settings. Players include Jim Hall, Joe Henderson, Elvin Jones and Richie Kamuca, and on each piece, both Konitz and his companion have loads of room to extrapolate on the base composition. Perhaps the highlight of the record is to be able to listen to Konitz wrap his warm tone around each piece, and then dance lightly around the melody. 8 numbers, including "Erb" with Jim Hall, "Checkerboard" with Dick Katz, and "You Don't Know What Love Is" with Joe Henderson.

Sidewalk, 1968. Sealed ... Out Of Stock
Instrumental grooves all the way – and one of the best of the Tower/Sidewalk soundtracks of the late 60s! The Arrows handle only two of the album's songs – and the real gems here come from The Sidewalk Sounds, who sound a lot hipper than usual! Given that this one is more of a race film than a biker one, the tunes are a bit more expansive – with grooves that throw in a bit more jazz, and some other dreamier 60s soundtrack type themes which round out the set nicely. The Arrows perform "Love Theme From The Wild Racers" and "The Checkered Flag", and The Sidewalk Sounds also perform "Love Theme", this time with a cool French voice in the middle, plus the cuts "Bedroom Theme", "First Meeting", "The Bullfight", "The Train Station", and "Wild Racers Theme".

✨✧ Booker T & The MGsComplete Stax Singles Vol 1 – 1962 to 1967 ... CD
Stax/Real Gone, Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A treasure trove of tight, organ-driven grooves from Booker T & The MGs – a quartet who really helped transform the sound of soul music in the 60s – even if they never sang on any of their records! The combo instrumental record had existed before Booker and the group, but working at Stax Records during the glory days of the Memphis soul scene, The MGs were able to come up with a whole new approach – tight, focused, and very sharp – not entirely funky, but not far off either – usually just with a scratchy guitar line to tighten up the rhythm, and Booker's fantastic lines on the organ to set up the tune! The group recorded a number of classic albums for Stax, but they maybe shone most on their singles – especially the b-sides, which were where they really had fun. (And trivia – "Green Onions", their biggest hit, was originally a b-side!) The set features the first run of their Stax singles – 29 tracks in all, with lots of unusual instrumentals next to the hits – titles that include "My Sweet Potato", "Booker Loo", "Aw Mercy", "Home Grown", "Big Train", "Chinese Checkers", "MG Party", "Soul Dressing", "Tic Tac Toe", "Mo Onions", "Behave Yourself", "Slim Jenkins Place", "Winter Wonderland", "Hip Hug Her", "Red Beans & Rice", "Can't Be Still", "Terrible Thing", "Outrage", "Boot Leg", "Fannie Mae", "Summertime", "Winter Snow", and of course, "Green Onions".
