✨✧ Cloud OneAtmosphere Strut ... CD
Octipi, 1976. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the holy grails of the Spaced Out club music scene! Patrick Adams produced and arranged (and wrote and probably performed) this stunning set of spacey club grooves with a cool electronic feel, and a nice sense of mid to uptempo rhythms. Includes the classic "Atmospheric Strut", one of the moogiest tracks around, plus the classics "Spaced Out" and "Disco Juice". All cuts are great, though, and the album's also got a good soul sound that often gets overlooked, especially on the cut "Doin' It All Night Long". A great one, and on the rare P&P label! Super hard to find on wax, but this CD makes the album available at a nice nice price. CD

✨✧ Cloud OneSpaced Out – The Best Of Cloud One ... CD
P&P, Late 70s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Classic work from the legendary P&P Records label – created by one of the "P" talents who gave them their name – studio genius Patrick Adams, who mostly works here on his own under the name of Cloud One! Adams already had great success working with east coast soul groups in the first half of the 70s – and as Cloud One, he really finds his way around the more cutting-edge styles of the time – mixing bits of funk with bits of disco, and often adding in these cool electronic elements that really helped define the P&P sound! Many cuts have cool moogy keyboards, and some spacey elements along the edges – done with a lot more soul than some of the Euro space disco recordings of the same time – with much more of a tie to the New York underground that was Adams' main milieu. Titles include the classics "Spaced Out" and "Atmosphere Strut" – plus "Jump Jump Jump", "Stomp Your Feet & Dance", "Disco Juice", "Don't Let My Rainbow Pass Me By", "Patty Duke", "Happy Music", "Doin It All Night", and "Flyin High".

✨✧ Rein De Graaff/Dick Vennick QuartetCloud People ... CD
Timeless/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1983. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Fantastic work from a group led by two giants of the Dutch jazz scene – both musicians who never got as much exposure on our side of the Atlantic, but who could really make magic on a record like this! The group is co-led by pianist Rein De Graaf and tenorist Dick Vennick – and there's this open, laidback approach to the whole proceedings – master soloists who know how to balance the group's energy with their own inspirations – at a level that really keeps things interesting, even on familiar tunes. Vennik plays flute on one track, beautifully – and the group also features Eric Ineke on drums and Koos Serierse – on titles that include "All Blues", "Lothlorien", "You've Changed", "Cloud People", and "Portrait Of Jennie".

✨✧ Tony BennettCloud 7 ... LP
Columbia, 1955. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Tony Bennett's greatest jazz sessions – a sublime mid 50s outing that features small combo backing from guitarist Chuck Wayne! The setting is extremely spare for the time – a real contrast from the higher drama of some of Tony's 50s chart hits, and the kind of a record that really lets him open up with the warmer vocal tones that could sometimes be lost on the pop numbers. Wayne's guitar is great too, really chromatic and moody, bringing out the darker colors in the tunes nicely. Other players include Dave Schildkraut on alto and Al Cohn on tenor – and titles include "Darn That Dream", "My Reverie", "I Fall In Love Too Easily", "My Heart Tells Me", "Old Devil Moon", and "Love Letters". LP, Vinyl record album

Dylan Baldi/Jayson GeryczAfter Commodore Perry Service Plaza ... LP
American Dreams, 2021. New Copy ... $18.99 19.99
Introspective improvisations from saxophonist Dylan Baldi and drummer Jayson Gerycz – both members of the band Cloud Nothings, but working here in a much more free jazz-styled setting! Side one features an extended track titled "Hermit Thrush/Vat Of Oil" – really building up nicely at first with open, almost rambling work on the drum kit – matched with saxophone work from Baldi that slowly builds, still in soulful spiritual territory for the most part – occasionally hitting some wilder, raspier moments – almost in an Arthur Doyle sort of way. Side two has some more subtle sonic interplay on "Frog Congress At Dawn", a very organic track – and ramps things up with more freewheeling improv on "The Holy Retrievers In Transit".

Lebron Brothers OrchestraPsychedelic Goes Latin ... LP
Cotique/Get On Down, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99 24.98
Amazing work from the New York underground of the late 60s – an album that's as magical as its title implies! Latin definitely goes psychedelic on this one – burning through a cloud of smoke with a brilliant blend of soul, jazz, and the hipper rhythms of the Spanish Harlem scene at the time. Many lyrics are in English, and the groove is a punchy blend of Latin Soul, boogaloo, and shing-a-ling styles – plus a storming descarga number to cap off the end of the set! Titles include "Descarga Lebron", "Mary Mary", "My Cool Boogaloo", "Mala Suerte", "Mi Mambo", "Tall Tale", and an original tune called "Summertime Blues" that's very different than the more famous hit!

Pucho & The Latin Soul BrothersHeat/Jungle Fire ... CD
Prestige/BGP (UK), 1968/1969. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
A pair of killers from Pucho & The Latin Soul Brothers – back to bck on a single CD! First up is Heat – a record that's beyond definition – as it combines Latin, soul, jazz, and even a few funky touches – all into one totally amazing sound! This one really gets all the elements right – and the fantastic Pazant Brothers (Eddie & Al) are on sax and trumpet (respectively), and a young Neal Creque is on piano, really bringing a sharp edge to Pucho's groove that other Latin combos of the time never had – and the set also features some vocals by Jackie Soul on a few cuts, who's a great singer that really helps cross a few cuts over into Latin Soul territory. Titles include the soul jazz cuts "Heat" and "Psychedelic Pucho", plus other great Latin soul cuts, like "Payin' Dues" and "Candied Yam". Jungle Fire is one of the greatest albums by this funky Latin combo! The record differs from some of their earlier Prestige albums in that the tracks are longer, more instrumental, and have a hard fuzzy electric groove. The band jams hard in a way that's more like some of the funk combos of the early 70s, than the Latin groups from which they came – and that's no problem by us, because the results are wonderful! Includes two funky numbers written by Sonny Phillips – "The Spokerman" and "Jamilah" – plus a great extended cover of "Cloud Nine". Great horn work from the funky Pazant Brothers, plus Seldon Powell, who also plays flute and tenor on the album – and other jazz funk stars on the album include Bernard Purdie, Billy Butler, and Neal Creque, Pucho's right hand man!

Arthur RussellAnother Thought ... CD
Point/Be With (UK), Late 80s/Early 90s. New Copy ... About November 5, 2021 (delayed)
Beautiful music from Arthur Russell – some of his most tunefully compelling work ever, but still done with all the offbeat edges we love from his more experimental sounds too! The music often features Russell singing along with processed lines on cello – in this haunting style that at one level evokes the more personal side of the post-punk scene, but which also links Arthur back to older singer-songwriters like Tim Buckley or Kenny Rankin at their best. The use of processing on the vocals recalls a bit of the vibe of the early Ben Watt solo recordings, and his work with Robert Wyatt – but there's also a sound and spirit here that's definitely Russell's own – that incredible outburst of creativity that was taken from us all too soon. Titles include "Hollow Tree", "My Tiger My Timing", "Losing My Taste For The Night Life", "Me For Real", "Lucky Cloud", "Another Thought", and "A Little Lost". CD

✨✧ Arthur RussellWorld Of Echo (limited CD & DVD) ... CD
Audika, 1986. Used CD & DVD ... $28.99
An incredibly beautiful set of work from Arthur Russell – one of the few records to be issued under his own name during his tragically short life – and a hauntingly spare blend of vocals, hand percussion, and solo cello – recorded with more than enough echo to live up to the title! The style is incredibly hard to peg – at times delivered with an almost Nick Drake-like approach that's extremely personal, but also sharing some styles with the mellower work of Suicide and other New York art rock groups from Russell's generation. Russell's voice billows out in a field of echo, directed almost imperceptibly by resonant notes on an electrified cello, and bumped along by muted rhythms that have almost no "attack" but lots of delay. One thing is extremely clear: that the album, which virtually died upon release back in the 80s, was years ahead of its time – and has a quality that easily ranks it as one of the most inventive recordings of its decade. The whole thing's as surprisingly appealing as it is experimental, and this extra-deluxe package features a number of additional tracks – plus a full bonus DVD by Phil Niblock, with music by Russell! Titles include "Wax The Van", "Tone Bone Kone", "Answers Me", "Being It", "She's The Star/I Take This Time", "Tree House", "See Through", "Lucky Cloud", "Happy Ending", "Tower Of Meaning/Rabbit's Ear/Home Away From Home", and "Our Last Night Together".

A really joyous album from Myles Sanko – an artist we've always loved, but who really seems to hit a new sort of pride and power with this release! There's an uplifting spirit to the sound right from the start – an anthemic approach that has the jazzy instrumentation soaring to the skies, and matching Myles' vocals wonderfully – at a level that should undeniably make him one of the rising stars of soul music in the next few years! The whole thing has a spirit and vibe that's perfect for all of us who've survived 2020 – and titles include "Rainbow In Your Cloud", "Where Do We Stand", "Never My Friend", "In The Morning", "Whatever You Are", "Freedom Is You", "Broken", and "Streams Of Time".

Columbia, 1968. Very Good ... $43.99
One of THE greatest experimental rock albums of the 60s – a landmark effort from a short-lived group that included avant musicians Joe Byrd and Gordon Marron! The group's got a really tremendous sound – part psyche, part electronic, and part folk rock – all put together in a freewheeling style that cares little for genre or convention – and which must have really shook the roots of Columbia Records when they submitted the tape for this set! The instrumentation on the set should be enough to pop your cork – as the group uses ring modulator, electric drums, electric harpsichord, organ, calliope, and other early electronic instruments – but their sound is topped off with some really beautiful vocals from singer Dorothy Moskowitz, adding a light touch that really makes for a strange juxtaposition! The lyrics are a bit poetic and trippy – in a good way – and titles include "The American Metaphysical Circus", "Garden Of Earthly Delights", and "Cloud Song". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousColemine Records Presents – Brighter Days Ahead ... CD
Colemine, 2021. New Copy ... $11.99
The future's brighter than the recent past – thanks to the spirit embraced here by the folks at Colemine Records – one of many labels who weathered the storm of 2020, and who see much brighter days ahead in the years to come! Colemine survived by stripping things down, and digitally issuing weekly tracks from different sides of their label roster – a way of keeping things alive during the darkest days, and giving many voices a chance to be heard – a nicely diverse array of funk and soul artists who've always given the label a really special sound. This set brings together key cuts from that run of releases – a full 2021 statement after the smaller steps of the previous years – and makes for a set that mixes bigger Colemine names with some great up-and-comers. Titles include "Jackie" by Reverend Baron, "Espume" by Rudy De Anda, "Cloud Of Smoke" by Andrew Gabbard, "Baby Girl" by Young Gun Silver Fox, "This Life" by Kendra Morris, "Changes (demo)" by Neal Francis, "Who Could It Be" by The Soul chance, "Here We Are" by Dojo Cuts with Carlton Jumel Smith, "Inner City Blues" by Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio, "Winston Theme" by Winston Brothers, "Sunk In The Mist" by JR Thomas & The Volcanos, "Standing With You" by The Resonaires, "What's His Name" by Thee Sineers, and "Sommer" by Ironsides.

VariousDJ Spinna Vs P&P Records ... CD
P&P/Traffic, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $6.99 15.98
DJ Spinna takes on P&P Records – and the results are sublime! Spinna's one of the most soulful talents to ever hit the decks – an artist we can always rely on for his crucial ear for older sounds – a really unique sense of taste that always has Spinna picking some of the best cuts from rare records – and finding a way to put them together that turns us on all over again to great music! Given that P&P is a treasure trove of rare grooves, Spinna's got plenty to work with here – and manages to dig into the label with effortless ease – coming up with a wicked blend of funky soul, soulful funk, underground club, and even a bit of hip hop too! This CD version features a full mix of 24 tracks – 80 minutes of music that's tweaked and touched-up here and there with some work on the decks. Titles include "Take Me I'm Yours" by Mary Clark, "I'm Gonna Fool You" by Ella Hamilton, "Game Of Life" by Lavaba & E Mallison, "Big Foot Boogie" by Brisko The Kidd, "Did You Notice" by Louise Murray, "Dust To Dust" by Cloud One, "Determination" by Eddie Owen, "New York's Movin" by Ahzz, "Feel The Spirit" by Foster Jackson Group, "Got You Dancing" by Karisma, and lots lots more!

Captain High (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $5.99 16.99
The "exotic" in the title is certainly well-placed – as many of these tracks take a familiar instrument, and use it in a slightly unusual way – a saxophone, piano, electric guitar, or something else – often set to grooves that start out in an R&B, early rock, or jazz-based style, but move into much groovier territory too! Some of these numbers have the spirit of the cuts we love in the Jukebox Mambo series – and others draw in elements of postwar Latin or exotica styles – while still keeping things pretty soulful overall! CD brings together material from the long-deleted Katanga and Ahbe Casabe 10" vinyl releases – with tracks that include "Nene Aman" by Artie Barsamian, "Green Onions" by Claus Ogerman, "Classie's Whip"b y Classie Ballou, "Cleopatra Kick" by Jack LaForge, "Lucky Is My Name" by Bruce Cloud, "They Took John Away" by Steve Arlen, "Shadow Street" by Kip Tyler, "Cleopatra" by Jamie Coe, "Katanga" by Ike Turner, "Lucky Me" by Chance Hallyday, "Ahbe Casabe" by Marti Barris, and "Thirteen Women & One Man" by Dickie Thompson – plus two bonus tracks "Riddle Of The Papawhos" by Danny Staton and "Pu Chun Ga (Sweet One)" by Elena Madera.

P&P, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $6.99 15.98
Patrick Adams picks the best of P&P Records – and the man definitely knows what he's doing – given that he was one of the "P's" in the label's name! The tunes here are heavy on those cool spaced-out grooves that Adams did so well – that wonderfully hip, and very underground style he used after an initial few years in more mainstream soul – the trademark imprint of P&P, and the reason why the label's tunes have gone onto influence so many others over the years! The grooves are all sublime – from quick-stepping moogy numbers, to mellower tracks that stretch out in this great sort of gentle funk – all tied together with a united production aesthetic and lots of shared sympathies between the artists. Titles include "Dance Dance Dance" by Marta Acuna, "Jump Jump Jump" by The Musicmakers, "God's Greatest Gift To Man Is Woman" by Margie Lomax, "God Save & Protect All The Children" by Margo Williams, "The Guardian Angel Is Watching Over Us" by Golden Flamingo Orchestra – and "Flying High", "Disco Juice", "Happy Music", and "Don't Let My Rainbow Pass Me By" by Cloud One.

Columbia, 2015. New Copy 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Pure wonderfulness from Internet – a group who seem to bound forward strongly with each new release! These guys are easily one of the most compelling mainstream soul acts we can think of – still very lean, and working with an indie-level vibe – but also able to focus in on hooks and the sorts of catchy elements that are bound to make the group huge in coming years! There's a crispy, crackling sound in the rhythms all the way through – but never in a too-abstract level, as some more sci-fi oriented artists can hit – and although the record features guest work from Janelle Monae, Tyler The Creator, and a few other stars – we actually love the group's own core performances the best.

This session is Herbie's only one for the Bethlehem label – but it stands nicely next to his better-known sides for Blue Note – with a stark, sharp modernist approach that grabs you from the very first note! Nichols has a sharp and edgey sound throughout – and an incredible sense of invention that never fails to delight us, no matter how many times we return to the record!

BBE (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An ear-opening set of Japanese jazz from a time when that nation's scene was really taking off – a period in the 70s when all sorts of new artists and new ideas were really flying around – and leaving behind a huge recorded legacy that's been mostly out of reach for us in the west! Japan always had a few big names in jazz that got exported overseas, but the work here is from some of the smaller names who were still turning out incredible music – much of it only issued on vinyl, and not reissued later – brought together here with copious notes that really tell you a heck of a lot about the music! There's definitely a post-Coltrane vibe going on – lots of spiritual elements, mixed with both moments that are funkier and more soulful, and others that are a bit more freewheeling – often stretched out on extended tracks that really let the artists take off and find their space. Titles include "Black Nile" by Hideyasu Terakawa, "Kirisame" by Ryusei Quartet, "Honey Sanba" by Katsuyuki Itakura, "Cumulonimbus" by Shigeharu Mukai, "Song Of Island" by Yasuhiro Kohno Trio + One, "Phoebus" by Hiroshi Murakami & Dancing Sphinx, "Morning Tiede" by Kohsuke Mine, "Kemo Sabe" by Masao Nakajima, "Song For Hope" by Aki Takase, "Planets" by Masaru Imada Trio + 1, "1/4 Samba" by Tatsuya Nakamura, "Acoustic Chicken" by Koichi Matsukaze, and "Cumorah" by Eiji Nakayama.

Ace (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the coolest compilations we've ever heard from Ace Records – a really special set that follows in the tradition of their other St Etienne cafe/pub collections – and like those gems, a very different package than usual! This time around, the duo of Bob Stanley and Pete Wiggs (who you'll also know from the Croydon International label) focus on an overlooked strand of British sounds at the start of the 70s – music that's moody, often jazzy, and almost always touched with a hint of blue – a kind of melancholic moment after the heady 60s – one that takes into stock all the great changes that had happened in the music, but delivers them in this laidback style that's completely unselfconscious. This isn't singer/songwriter material, and it's not progressive either – although it carries light traces of some of the best of those scenes – and if we had to try to dig for a tag for these tracks at all, we might use the term "folk funk" that was bandied about years ago – for cuts that have a vibe that's complex yet personal, and lots of jazziness in the phrasing. Titles include "Last Cloud Home" by The Orange Bicycle, "Love Song With Flute" by Caravan, "Moon Bird" by The Roger Webb Sound, "Early Morning Eyes" by The Peacock Band, "JTL" by T2, "Evening Shade" by Alan Parker & Alan Hawkshaw, "Windfall" by Offspring, "Never Let Go" by Camel, "Bottles" by Belle Gonzalez, "Watching White Stars" by The Way We Live, "Wise Man In Your Heart" by Daevid Allen, "Til The Christ Come Back Home" by Bill Fay, "Pamela" by Scot Mist, and "O Caroline" by Matching Mole – a song which perfectly sums up the mood of the set.

Andy Smith has given us many amazing compilations over the years – sets that have a special mix magic, made up of rocksteady, reggae, vintage funk, and even some rockabilly too! Yet as Andy says here in the notes, he first got hooked on music in the disco generation – and has always had a life-long love of unusual and underground grooves – which he definitely demonstrates here, in a stunning selection of cuts that focus on the funkier side of the disco generation – with a good number of tracks that have turned out to be sample cuts over the years. Titles include "For The Love Of Money" by Disco Dub Band, "Patty Duke" by Cloud One, "Times Are Tight" by Jimmy Young, "Share The Night" by World Premiere, "Is It In" by Jimmy Bo Horne, "Let It Flow" by Tamiko Jones, "Main Thing" by Shot with Kim Marsh, "Give It Up" by Neddy Smith, "Groove To Get Down" by T-Connection, "Holding You Tight (ext DJ mix)" by Sure Thing, "First True Love Affair (Andy Smith & Nick Halke reach up edit)" by Jimmy Ross, "Got To Have You (Whiskey Barons re-edit)" by Joanne Wilson, "I Wanna Be Myself" by Don Laka, "Get Up & Boogie" by Freedom, and "Take Me To The Top" by Advance. 2CD version features all tracks unmixed on one disc, and a special mix on the other!

Karin KrogCloud Line Blue ... LP
Polydor (Norway), Mid 70s. Near Mint- ... $49.99
Incredible work from Scandinavian singer Karin Krog! Although Krog began her career as a straight jazz vocalist, she cut a number of records in the 70's that had her pushing into a cool territory that was a lot more progressive, and which had some great Euro-fusion touches – like the sorts you'd find on classic MPS recordings. This session, recorded under the guidance of John Surman, has Krog's icy Scandinavian voice in moody settings of moog and electric keyboards, plus some spacey soprano work by Surman. The album's filled with excellent spacey soundscapes that have Surman soloing nicely on reeds, and which have Krog singing in a style that will bring to mind the radiator song from Eraserhead. Titles include "New Spring", "Alone Song", "Edge Piece", "Empty Streets", "Eyeless In Movement", and "Cloud Line Blue". LP, Vinyl record album

Plastic CloudPlastic Cloud ... LP
Pacemaker Entertainment/Lion (Canada), 1968. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99
A legendary set from the Canadian 60s underground – a landmark record from a group who've gone onto become huge over the years with psych collectors, even though they never cracked the charts (or the US market) at the time! The set's way more than just another obscure rock release – as it's got a sharpness, tightness, and sense of songcraft that matches some of the bigger names in the US scene at the time – put together with a style that knows when to open up, but never loses itself in self-indulgence either. There's some surprisingly strong harmonies throughout the tunes – which often have a fuzzy, rollicking edge, but without losing sight of the sunny groove – and titles include "Epistle To Paradise", "Shadows Of Your Mind", "Art's A Happy Man", "Bridge Under A Sky", the epic centerpiece "You Don't Care", "Face Behind The Sun", "Dainty General Rides", and "Civilization Machine".

TemptationsCloud Nine ... LP
Gordy, 1969. Very Good ... $24.99
A masterpiece in psychedelic soul from The Temptations – perhaps the most perfectly realized album from their years working with Norman Whitfield! The set's awash in that bottom-heavy, rumbling funk mode that Whitfield brought to the group at the end of the 60s – served up in bold tracks that push the group's vocals to a whole new level, and which bring in a more righteous sound than anyone might have expected previously from Motown! The centerpiece here is the amazing "Runaway Child" – a really extended number that has all the political soul of a Curtis Mayfield tune – and other titles include "Cloud Nine", "Don't Let Him Take Your Love From Me", "Love Is A Hurtin Thing", "I Gotta Find A Way", "I Need Your Lovin", and "I Heard It Through the Grapevine".

A great dip into the earliest, headiest years of the Grateful Dead – served up here in a set that brings together cuts from their first three albums, plus a single as well! The mix of modes here is still mindblowing after all these many years – and even after all the later cliches of the group, too – as there's a time-spanning, genre-stepping quality from the young lineup of Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Mickey Hart, and others – moving through tracks that include the long "That's It For The Other One" suite, plus "The Golden Road To Unlimited Devotion", "Cream Puff War", "Morning Dew", "Born Cross-Eyed", "Cosmic Charlie", "China Cat Sunflower", and "St Stephen" – plus the original 45 rpm single mix of "Dark Star" – quite different than all the long-jamming takes from later years.

David Grubbs & Nikos VeliotisHarmless Dust ... LP
Headz/Improved Sequence (Italy), 2005. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
Beautifully minimal sounds from the duo of David Grubbs and Nikos Veliotis – Grubbs on piano and Hammond organ, and Veliotis on cello and e-bowed piano – all instruments that are used together in really wonderful ways! The first half of the set features piano and cello – the latter of which is often gently bowed, with these long-running tones that are very different than the spacious, well-chosen notes that come from Grubbs' piano – almost as if Veliotis is trying to create this subtle cloud of darkness to offset the brighter tones of the keys. That approach shifts slightly on the second half – as both the Hammond and bowed piano have a similar resonance together – making these very slow, subtle sonic shifts as the record moves on – creating some very nice tension near the end!

✨✧ Lambert, Hendricks & RossHottest New Group In Jazz ... LP
Columbia, Late 50s. Near Mint- ... $19.99
How can we even begin to describe the genius of Lambert Hendricks and Ross? The group was a jazz vocal supergroup that merged three talents that had already made a big name in the bebop vocalese field – Dave Lambert, Jon Hendricks, and the lovely Annie Ross – and the project was an attempt to completely work the emerging vocalese style onto a full-blown jazz group. This album wasn't their first – but it was the first to really break them with the masses, and it's a vocal jazz classic if there ever was one. Backings are by the Ike Isaacs Trio, plus Harry Edison on trumpet – and titles include "Moanin", "Twisted", "Cloudburst", "Everybody's Boppin", and "Sermonette". LP, Vinyl record album

Pointer SistersPointer Sisters/That's A Plenty ... CD
Blue Thumb/BGO (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99 19.99
Two early albums from this legendary group – back to back in a single set! First up is the self-titled Pointer Sisters – the group's debut, and an album that's a lot deeper than most of their crossover pop from years to come! At the time of the album's release, the trio were a badass group of female singers on the Bay Area scene – out to redefine the role of the girl group in soul – working not only with righteous power that was a real change from modes of the 60s – but also this trans-temporal quality that had them reaching back with ease for references from decades past, which also includes a surprising amount of jazz! The highlight here is the group's classic funky break version of Allen Toussaint's "Yes We Can Can" – and other titles include "Naked Food", "Wang Dang Doodle", "Sugar", "Pains & Tears", "Jada", "River Boulevard", and "Cloudburst". That's A Plenty is a wonderfully retro-styled set from the Pointer Sisters – one that has the group singing in a variety of older jazz modes, but which also mixes in a nice dose of heavy funk as well! The format's an odd one, but very typical of the group's genre-blending style – of the sort that first got them noticed strongly in the early 70s, then helped them bridge out to a wide variety of audiences later in the decade. Styles include bop, swing, and even a bit of trad jazz – plus some bluesier funk on the best numbers – and the album features an incredible 8 minute version of "Love In Them There Hills", done in a sweet 70s electric style! Other tracks include "Grinning In Your Face", "Little Pony", "Fairytale", "Black Coffee", "Shaky Flat Blues", and "That's A Plenty/Surfeit USA". CD

London/Big Pink (South Korea), 1969. New Copy ... $18.99 22.99
A really sweet record from the Canadian scene at the end of the 60s – and a set that feels a lot more like a California-styled version of Sunshine Pop than you might expect! The group's an initial vehicle for the husband/wife team of Susan and Terry Jacks – the latter of whom would blossom as a big AM radio star in the early 70s, but who here steps aside and lets Susan take the lead on most tracks – singing in this slinky style that really fits her look on the cover, with support from instrumentation that includes some psych-styled guitar lines, fit to a more mainstream mode – occasionally touched by nice use of percussion too. Titles include their huge hit "Which Way You Goin Billy" – plus the tracks "Free From the City", "Beyond the Clouds", "There's No Blood In Bone", "Happy Island", and "Of Cities & Escapes". CD

Tenorio JrEmbalo ... CD
RGE/Mr Bongo (UK), 1964. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
A set that's maybe one of the greatest bossa jazz albums of all time – and a fantastic homegrown Brazilian effort that's quite different from the more commercial American bossa albums of the 60s! Tenorio Jr isn't just a hell of a pianist, he's a great writer and arranger too – one who's got an amazing ear for color and tone, balanced out with some completely sublime grooves – not smooth coffee shop bossa nova, but instead the harder sort of rhythms that were cooked up by the best combos in Brazil! The tunes are as warm and soulful as they are tight and angular – a perfect summation of the bossa jazz idiom at its truest expression – and the writing is fantastic throughout, with original songs that really provide a fresh change from some of the too-played hits of the generation. Instrumentation includes trombone from Raul De Souza, drums from Milton Banana, tenor from Meirelles, and alto sax from Paulo Moura – on titles that include the classic groover "Nebulosa", plus the tracks "Clouds", "Nectar", "Embalo", and "Estou Nessa Agora". A delight through and through – and one we never tire of! CD

Bobby was one of the more unlikely soul acts of the late 70s – but thanks to some skillful keyboard playing and smooth vocals, he scored huge with the track "What You Won't Do For Love", a nicely compressed mellow soul cut that almost feels like ballad-style Earth, Wind & Fire circa 1975, and which has remained a perennial favorite. The cut's included here on Bobby's first album, along with "Special To Me", "Can't Say Goodbye", "My Flame", "Love Won't Wait", "Come To Me", "Down For The Third Time", "Take Me Back To Then" and "Kalimba Song", another nod to Maurice White and crew, to be sure!

Narroway (Sweden), 1940s/1950s/1960s. New Copy 3CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An amazing legacy in gospel music – three decades' worth of tracks that feature just harmony vocals, no instrumentation at all – in a rich summation of all that the style brought to American music in mid century! Sure, there were some strong harmonies in 60s soul, 50s pop, and later rock – but these are the sorts of cuts that show where so many of those artists got their ideas and inspiration – music that bridges the early years of vocal groups on 78rpm singles, working here with more modern arrangements, and recording quality that really brings out the best in the voices! Many of the artists here are male groups – strong precursors to later doo wop and soul – and as with other Narroway titles, the selection of cuts is wonderful, with a huge amount of material from rare singles. 84 tracks in all – work by Flying Clouds Of Detroit, Famous Blue Jay Singers, Ever Ready Singers, Charming Bells, Silvertone Jubilee Singers, Silver Leaf Quartet Of Florida, Seven Star Juniors, Reliable Jubilee Singers, National Clouds Of Joy, Wings Over Jordan Choir, Traveling Four, Southern Echoes, and many others.

Silver Cloud/P-Vine (Japan), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A sweet mellow stepper from Danny Dee, aka Lil Albert – a singer who first got things going in the Hawaiian group Society Of Seven – but who hits some completely different, completely great territory here! The set was recorded in mid 70s LA, with arrangement and production by Ernie Freeman – and Albert's got backing from some of the cream of that scene's studio musicians, who bring some great jazzy touches to the music! There's definitely an ear here towards an AOR approach, but the result is more like the best indie mellow soul of the period – well-produced, but never overdone – nicely understated, in a way that makes the lead vocals sound completely sublime. Titles include "My Girl Friday", "Movin In", "Daydreamin", "Outrageous", "River Of Steel", "Loose Woman", and "Roads". LP, Vinyl record album

David BowieBowie At The BEEB – The Best Of The BBC Radio Sessions 1968 to 1972 ... CD
Virgin, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used 2 CDs ... $11.99
A great addition to the David Bowie catalog – a set of key recordings for the BBC that stand strongly with the rest of his studio material from the time! The BBC format was always handled in a relaxed, but professionally-done way – which means that the quality of the recordings is excellent, and Bowie's able to provide slight variations on the tunes, often in ways that reflect the intimacy and charm of the radio studio, in contrast to his bigger concert performances of the time. There's also some nice surprise tracks here – such as his versions of "I'm Waiting For The Man", "White Light/White Heat", and "Amsterdam" – alongside tracks that include "Almost Grown", "Looking For A Friend", "Eight Line Poem", and "Bombers" – and classics that include "Wild Eyed Boy From Freecloud", "The Supermen", "Changes", "Oh You Pretty Things", "Andy Warhol", "Ziggy Stardust", "Queen Bitch", "Good Knows I'm Good", "Width Of A Circle", "Rock N Roll Suicide", and "Space Oddity".

An amazing dip into the archives of Joni Mitchell – one that features the Reprise Records label in the title, but which features all unissued material recorded at the same time as her bigger classics for Reprise! There's a wonderful blend of material here – some live tracks, some demo cuts, and some really unusual recordings that even include a few apartment tracks – all brought together in a lovely box that includes archival photos, ephemera, and a 40 page booklet of notes! The set features a 22 track Live At Carnegie Hall set from 1969, a 23 track BBC In Concert recording from 1970 (with duets with James Taylor), and a 23 track Live At Le Hibou Coffee House in 1968 – plus material from sessions for Song To A Seagull, Clouds, Blue, and Ladies Of The Canyon. There's also 4 songs and an interview from the Dick Cavett Show, 3 tracks for BBC Top Gear with the backing of John Cameron, material recorded at Jane Lurie's apartment and at Mitchell's own home, and even more live cuts too. 122 tracks in all – and a fantastic look at Joni Mitchell during her key creative years!

One of the coolest Christmas albums ever – a tripped-out classic from Chicago's legendary Rotary Connection! The album's every bit as wonderful as any of the group's non-Holiday sets for Cadet Records – and maybe even has more to offer, given that the euphoria of the season is thrown into the usual spacey mix! Charles Stepney lays down some totally angelic production – and the record bubbles with heavenly instrumental passages – floating along like clouds, then suddenly exploding into sharp musical moments that provide the perfect backdrop for Minnie Riperton's excellent voice. Most of the tracks are originals, penned as spacey seasonal numbers that bring a whole new sense of spirituality to the end of December – a young, optimistic take on the holiday – which makes for a really unique sort of record! Titles include "Christmas Child", "Opening Round", "Silent Night", "Christmas Love", "Shopping Bag Menagerie", "Peace At Last", "Silent Night Chant", "Sidewalk Santa", and "Last Call For Peace".

The lineup here is wonderful – with Latin percussion from Armando Peraza and Willie Bobo, guitar and harmonica from Toots Thielemans, and vibes from Johnny Rae – the last of whom really helps make the record sparkle, by hitting these wonderful tones that ring out alongside George's piano! The album's a key illustration of the sounds and styles that so many other borrowed from Shearing in the 60s – as you'll hear on cuts that include a fab rendition of "Moonray" – plus "Cuban Carnival", "Midnight On Cloud 69", "The Man I Love", and "Out Of This World".

Now Again, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 3 CDs ... $13.99 29.98
Amazing sounds from The Stark Reality – an obscure group from the early 70s, but one who've really risen to fame over the years – thanks to their groundbreaking ear for new music, and their freewheeling way with a funky groove! This package brings together all the incredible work recorded by the group in the late 60s and early 70s – a mindblowing assortment of funky and fuzzy jazz tracks – almost all of which are graced by the offbeat vibes work of Monty Stark! Stark often adds a bit of distortion into his instrument, which makes for a very tripped-out approach to vibes – one that blends perfectly with the heavy funk of some of the rhythms, and the freaky guitar lines added to most tracks by a young John Abercrombie. Yet at other times, things are very laidback and chilled-out – balanced beautifully from track to track, in a way that illustrates the larger picture the group were always going for in their music. This massive package brings together everything Stark Reality ever recorded – their famous Discovers Hoagy Carmichael's Music Shop album, the Acting Thinking Feeling live performance, the Roller Coaster Ride/1969 album, and lots of rare singles too – more than enough music to please any fan of the group, and blow the minds of anyone who's just getting a first taste. Titles include "Roller Coaster Ride", "On Being Black", "New World Generation", "Theme To Say Brother", "Dreams", "Clouds", "All You Need To Make Music", "Rocket Ship", "Cooking", "The Old Prospector", and "Junkman's Song".

Tardy's developed a nice sense of bite in his tone over the years, but uses it in subtle ways, too – a gentle current of darkness that never overstates itself, but really has a gentle power on the record – as Gregory blows with a core combo that features Keith Brown on piano, Alexander Claffy on bass, and Willie Jones III on drums – plus guest trumpet from Alex Norris on two tracks.

Gospel Roots/Honest Jons (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $29.99
A really really beautiful little compilation – one with a sound that's every bit as powerful as the image on its cover! The music here all comes from the Gospel Roots label of Miami soul powerhouse TK Records – a key force in mainstream soul in the 70s, but also a company who issued some excellent spiritual material at the time! The work here isn't rootsy gospel – and instead reflects all the hip, righteous changes that were coming into the music during the 70s – bits of blacksploitation funk in the rhythms, powerful lead singers upfront, and an impeccable production style that often mixed deep soul vocals with modern soul presentation. This side of the TK legacy has been crucially ignored over the years – but this wonderful package more than corrects that fault – by offering up some of the key tracks from the Gospel Roots label, alongside a lavish booklet that's filled with notes, photos, and record images – all recounting the overdue tale of this great music. Not all artists are southern – there's a number from up north, and even a few from Chicago – and titles include "Tell Me" by The Fantastic Family Aires, "After The Rain" by Pastor TL Barrett, "Will You Save Me" by The Jordan Singers, "Never Say What You Want" by The Phillipians, "Help Me To Carry On" by The Fabulous Luckett Brothers, "I've Got To Make A Change" by Bright Clouds, "Wake Up Everybody" by The O'Neal Twins, "On Jesus Program" by The Original Sunset Travelers, "Blessed Be The Name Of God" by The Brooklyn All Stars, and "Christians Catch Hell" by Reverend Edna Isaac & The Greene Sisters.

Numero, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
Killer gospel work from a small Chicago label – most of it pretty darn funky and soulful as well! The label sticker on the album's cover states a link too musical roots in the deep south – but the overall sound here is more in that wonderful hybrid of spiritual and secular that happened in the Chicago scene in the 70s – as hipper, more sophisticated modes came into play with the message – and resulted in grooves that are equally appealing to soul music fans as well! All the cuts were put together in a tiny studio on the city's west side – and as with most Numero projects, the package provides an essential look at a musical scene we might have missed otherwise – even though Dusty Groove is just a few miles down the street from the original studio. Titles include "Satisfied Mind" by Reverend Jennings, "Got To Make A Hundred" by Harmony Four, "Soul Couldn't Be Contented" by The Inspirational Souls, "Saved & Sanctified" by Brother Hayes & The Farmer Singers, "My Shoes" by Flying Eagle Gospel Singers, "Never Alone" by The Gospel Clouds, and "Why Is The Blood Running Warm" by The Mighty Messiahs.

The set's a much-needed look at the way that energy from EWF flowed out to so many other folks too – as the group's tunes were frequently covered, its members frequently worked with other artists, and Maurice White frequently lent his production talents to others in the studio! The package is overflowing with greatness from the great ones – a killers set of tracks that include "Got To Find My Way" by Pockets, "Tequila Mockingbird" by Dee Dee Bridgewater, "Let's Get Together" by Paulinho DaCosta, "City Lights" by Valerie Carter, "Ancient Source" by Caldera, "Answer To My Prayer" by Alton McClain & Destiny, "Let Love Groove Me" by Syliva St James, "The Boy I Left Behind" by Deniece Williams, "Glow Love" by Mighty Clouds Of Joy, "And I Do" by Abraham Laboriel, "I Waited" by Blue Magic, "Dream Come True" by Stargard, and "Theme For Relana" by Gene Harris.

✨✧ Steve & Iqua ColsonHope For Love ... CD
Silver Sphinx, 2003. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Beautiful work from Adegoke Steve Colson – a warmly grooving set cut with vocalist Iqua Colson – possibly one of Steve's straightest records ever, but one of his most soulful, too! Iqua's got a fluid vocal approach that's mighty nice – and the Colson combo swings in a mix of modal moments and soul jazz roots – with work from TK Blue on soprano and alto sax, Andy McCloud on bass, and Reggie Nicholson on drums. Most titles are originals, with a really fresh feel – the kind of hopeful, optimistic spirit of jazz vocals, if you still no where to look – and titles include "Hope For Love", "At The Church Steps", "Picante", "Regina's Lament", "South Of The Border Serenade", and "After Revelation's Ease".

✨✧ PrinceArt Official Age ... CD
Warner, 2014. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The more stylistically sprawling of the 2 albums Prince released upon returning to Warner Brothers in 2014 – nicely recalling some of his better later 80s and early 90s material, post-Sign O The Times craft – but still moving forward, as opposed to reliving past glories! Art Official Age finds Mr. Nelson working in myriad strains of eccentric, 80s-learned pop, soul and funk – in a voice that's held up impossibly well over the years. This one is credited to Prince alone, but features backing by his 3rdeyegirl rock band, Marissa Jack, aka Golden Hippie, Paloma Ayana and others. Everything from tripped out cosmic soul pop, to electro funk and psych soul guitar jams – Prince will be Prince! Includes the title track, "Clouds", "Breakdown", "The Gold Standard", "Breakfast Can Wait", "This Could Be Us", "Way Back Home", "Affirmation" (parts I, II & III), "Time" and more. CD

✨✧ O'JaysLet Me Touch You ... LP
Philadelphia International, 1987. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
Proof that the O'Jays fire can never die – because even though the instrumentation is slightly dated at times, this set sill has the group shining strongly on the vocal tip – hitting some great harmonies on the mellow cuts, and stepping out boldly on the more upbeat ones. Things are very much still in the Philly family here – with production by Thom Bell, Eddie Levert, and Gamble & Huff – and titles include "Lovin You", "Undercover Lover", "Cause I Want You Back Again", "Don't Take Your Love Away", "Let Me Touch You", "No Lies To Cloud My Eyes", "Don't Let The Dream Get Away", and "I Just Want Somebody To Love Me". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Os IpanemasOs Ipanemas ... LP
CBS/Mr Bongo (UK), Mid 60s/1996. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The landmark first album from Os Ipanemas – a runaway set of smoking bossa jazz – and a record that really helped set a whole new tone for the genre! The group here is a cooking quintet of Brazilian all-stars – including Astor Silva on trombone, Wilson Das Neves on percussion, Neco on guitar, and Rubens Bassini on drums and percussion – a great lineup that comes together perfectly – in a blend that has raw Brazilian percussion mixed with tighter jazz elements – a mode the bridges two sides of Brazil in the 60s, in a really great way! And although the group have come back to fame in recent years, this initial set may well be our favorite by them – filled with great cuts that include "Nana", "Clouds", "Zulus", "Congo", "Java", and a great cover of "Berimbau". LP, Vinyl record album
(Really great vinyl pressing – better than any previous versions!)

✨✧ VariousSpiritual Jazz 2 – Europe – Esoteric, Modal, & Deep Jazz From The European Underground 1960 to 1978 ... LP
Jazzman (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
The sound of spiritual jazz from the European underground of the 60s and 70s – a really rich music-making scene that's every bit as impressive as the one going on in the US – as you'll hear from this amazing set of tracks! As with the first volume in the series, the collection is filled with modal jazz and other groovers – mostly long tracks that really stretch out, yet still always have a tight sense of rhythm – one that makes the music completely infectious right from the start! It might be tempting to think of European jazz of this sort as kind of a copy of a US mode – but instead, it really happened simultaneously – as younger players were really pushing past the styles of previous years – and drawing not only on American jazz for inspiration, but also a range of different post-colonial modes particular to the European scene – bits of African, Latin, Brazilian, and other styles that really helped influence their approach. And in a way, it might even be said that the Europeans of the 60s had a much looser approach to rhythm, one that really allowed for experiments like these – and which, in turn, went back to have an influence on the American side as well. Titles include "Temple Dancer" by Michael Garrick, "Communion" by Erich Kleinschuster, "Archangelo" by Raphael, "Africa Freakout" by Barney Wilen, "Corrida" by Nicolai Gromin, "Duke & Trane" by Hiekki Sarmanto, "Nana Imboro" by Wroblewski Jazz Quintet, "Las Morillas De Jaen" by Pedro Iturralde, "Bosnia Calling" by Dusko Goykovich, and "Candy Clouds (part 2)" by Hans Dulfer & Ritmo Natural.

✨✧ VariousWamono A to Z Vol 1 – Japanese Jazz Funk & Rare Groove 1968 to 1980 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
180g (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic dip into the world of Japanese funk during the 70s – a great place to start if you don't want to slap down big money for expensive imports – and a set that's also got a fair bit of obscure numbers in the lineup, even if you have some of the material from this time! The collection's got a specific ear for a groove – and often focuses on tracks that mix US styles of jazzy funk with specific Japanese styles of instrumentation – a wood flute here, a bit of koto there – all used in very cool, very groovy ways – and in a setting that's still very appealing if you're a fan of more familiar funky jazz from the 70s! Titles include "Incitation" by Monica Lassen & The Sounds, "Soran Bushi" by Toshiiko Yonekawa, "Touch Of Japanese Tone" by Takeo Yamashita, "Cloudy" by Chikara Ueda & The Power Station, "Downtown Blues" by Chumei Watanabe, "Sidewinder" by Akira Ishikawa & Count Buffalos, "Sniper's Snooze" by Masahiko Sato and Jiro Inagaki, and "Hanagas Onda" by Kifu Mitsuhashi.

✨✧ Jeff CarneyImperfect Space Journeys (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Audio File/Lion, 1988. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A cassette-only rarity from the glory days of the tape-based new age underground – but a set that's much more strongly in line with 70s masterpieces from the German electronic music pioneers! Jeff Carney plays his instrumentation live here, and in ways that are hardly meditative or relaxing – as the whole thing really takes off into the cosmos with the sorts of sounds that would have made Klaus Schulze or Edgar Froese mighty mighty proud – long-spun tunes that pulsate with all these extended lines on keyboards and organs, used with bits of effects and just a touch of sequencer – all played live, with no overdubs or tapes. Titles include "Toys", "Trip", "Safety Hazard", "Voyage Of The Filters", and "Cloud 9". 2LP set also features bonus tracks – "Earth Escape", "Quark", and "Wailing Wall". LP, Vinyl record album
