✨✧ ManhattansManhattans Sing For You & Yours – Golden Carnival Classics Part Two (Collectables pressing) ... CD
Carnival/Collectables, 1968. Used ... Out Of Stock
A heck of a great 60s soul album – one that we'd rank right up there with the best by the Impressions from the time – perfectly put together without a bit of filler! The set's the second full length set by The Manhattans – one of the few groups of their time who could really pull off such an all-original set without a lot of outside help. The tracks are all wonderfully fresh – and run from beautiful mellow harmony numbers to some harder, more fast-stomping upbeat dancefloor tunes! Titles include "I Wanna Be", "I Call It Love", "Sweet Little Girl", "I Betcha", "All I Need Is Your Love", "It's That Time Of Year", and "For The Very First Time". CD

Art Blakey, Dizzy Gillespie & OthersGiants Of Jazz - Recorded Live At The Victoria Theatre In London ... CD
Atlantic/Collectables, 1972. Used 2 CDs ... $9.99
This session shouldn't work, but it does – and beautifully! By all means, an album that includes Diz, Art Blakey, Monk, and Sonny Stitt playing together should be a first-rate snoozer, with hackneyed performances of common-denominator material that they can all get their hooks around – but instead, it's an amazing bit of work that has all players hitting some of their best moments of the 70's! Diz has that great deep 70's funk sound in his trumpet, Stitt's solos are razor sharp, and Blakey's drums have a good snap to them, and were recorded extremely well, despite the fact that this was a live session. All tracks are long, and the record includes great versions of "Tin Tin Deo", "Night In Tunisia", "Allen's Alley", "Blue Monk", "Woody N You", and "Tour De Force". CD

Art Blakey/Modern Jazz QuartetArt Blakey's Jazz Messengers With Thelonious Monk/Blues At Carnegie Hall ... CD
Collectables, 1958/1967. Used ... $3.99
An unlikely pairing of albums, but another nice 2-fer of classic Atlantic sides. The Jazz Messengers album is a great one – and features the firey hardbop of Blakey's late 50's Messengers (with Johnny Griffin and Bill Hardman) meeting the modernist piano playing of Monk, who was really hitting his stride at this point on his own Riverside recordings. The session's an interesting one, and if it lacks the groove of the usual Blakey album, Monk more than makes up for any lack of soulfulness by throwing in some nice complicated piano lines. We still prefer Bobby Timmons to Monk with Blakey – but the album's worth having, and includes nice Monk tracks like "Evidence", "Blue Monk", "I Mean You", and "Purple Shades". The MJQ session's a live one, and features the usual tightly arranged chamber jazz approach. Tracks on that one include "Bag's Groove", "Blues Milanese", "Pyramid", and "The Cylinder". CD

✨✧ Eddie HarrisSilver Cycles ... CD
Atlantic/Collectables, 1969. Used ... $6.99
Sweet silver cycles from Eddie Harris – a wonderful late 60s album that features lots of lines on the electrified Varitone saxophone, mixed with cool contributions from a shifting lineup of soulful musicians! The set's one of Eddie's real classics from the Atlantic years – completely inventive, but never in a gimmicky way – and a really great bridge between late 60s modes of funk, jazz, and soul – at the same level he'd serve up more famously in his collaborations with Les McCann! There's a lot of that same energy here, but the vibe is even tighter – and Harris really blows us away with his great arrangements, which get a slight bit of help from Arif Mardin. Other players include Melvin Jackson on bass, Seldon Powell on reeds, and Joe Zawinul on keyboards – and titles include "Silver Cycles", "Electric Ballad", "Little Bit", "Free At Last", "Coltrane's View", "Electric Salad", "1974 Blues", and "Smoke Signals".

Deon JacksonDeon Jackson – Golden Classics ... CD
Atlantic/Collectables, Mid 60s. Used ... $9.99
Great stuff! We love Deon Jackson – we love his voice, we love his songs, and we love the great production he gets from the legendary Ollie McLaughlin! This CD features 16 of Deon's great soul work recorded with Ollie for the Detroit-based Carla label from the 60s – and they're picture-perfect tunes, with vocal phrasing that's right up there with the best male singers of the 60s, and a fresh approach to instrumentation that mixes Motown grooving with uptown soul arrangements. Deon's unique style works extremely well on all the tracks, from the super-hit "Love Makes The World Go Round", to other material like "When Your Love Is Gone", "Come Back Baby", "You Said You Love Me", "I Need A Love Like Yours", "On A Sunny Day", "The Reason Why", and "Hush Little Baby".

John LewisWonderful World Of Jazz/Evolution ... CD
Atlantic/Collectables, 1960/1999. Used 2 CDs ... $6.99
2 different albums by pianist John Lewis – each recorded nearly four decades apart, and packaged here in a single set! First up is Wonderful World Of Jazz, one of the best early albums cut by John Lewis as a leader – a set that's a fair bit different than John's work with the Modern Jazz Quartet – thanks to strong guest appearances from players who include Paul Gonsalves and Benny Golson on tenor sax, Eric Dolphy on alto, Jim Hall on guitar, and Herb Pomeroy on trumpet. Most of the tracks are a great mix of the mellow, introspective Lewis approach with some of the freer, more relaxed styles of the soloists – an approach that's slightly third stream, but which also has some of the great sounds and tones that Lewis forged on his Afternoon In Paris album with Sacha Distel. Titles include great versions of "Body & Soul" and "Afternoon In Paris", plus Lewis' classic "2 Degrees East, 3 Degrees West", as well as "I Should Care" and "I Remember Clifford". Next is Evolution, recorded in 1999 – and featuring Lewis on solo piano in Tarrytown Music Hall. The setting is an auspicious one – and the recording has Lewis' solo notes ring out strongly, filling the whole room with their power and presence – even though the overall approach here still has all the sense of space between the notes of John's music from many decades before. Lewis has lost none of his grace on the keys, nor his ear for an interesting tone – and titles include "Afternoon In Paris", "Cherokee", "For Ellington", "Don't Blame Me", "At The Horse Show", "Willow Weep For Me", "Django", and "September Song".

Little Anthony & The ImperialsWe Are The Imperials ... CD
Collectables, 1959. Used ... $5.99
Incredible work from one of the greatest groups on the east coast scene at the end of the 50s – a wonderful harmony combo, but one with a hell of a lead singer too! Anthony's voice is hardly "little" here – as he belts it out with this raw soul power that's years ahead of its time – really bold on the upbeat tracks, heartbreaking on the ballads, but still able to slide back and harmonize with the Imperials at all the right moments. The album's one of the best examples of the group's genius at its height – a style that would later go onto become such a big influence on 70s groups like The Delfonics or The Stylistics – and titles include "Tears On My Pillow", "So Much", "The Diary", "Oh Yeah", "Wishful Thinking", "Two People In the World", and "What Did I Do".

Carmen McRaeJust A Little Lovin' ... CD
Atlantic/Collectables, 1970. Used ... $6.99
Bold, boozy work from Carmen McRae – a wonderfully mature album from that great time when her style was equal parts jazz and soul – put together here by arranger/producer Arif Mardin, a perfect choice for the record! There's a care to the overall presentation not heard in some of McRae's albums from a few years before – not just jazz vocals with a backing group, but a really rich presentation of some hip, modern, all-adult material that somehow sounds even better in Carmen's hands than anyone else. Titles include the sublime title tune "Just A Little Lovin" – plus"Goodbye Joe", "I Love The Life I Live", "Carry That Weight", "Something", "I Want You", "More Today Than Yesterday", and "Didn't We".

Collectables, 1972/1974. Used 2 CDs ... $6.99
Two of David Newman's best moments from the 70s – mostly because he was working with Roy Ayers, and picking up a hipper style than usual, which turned his sometimes sleepy horn into an instrument that was more ready to match the talents of emerging hip jazz funk artists on labels like Kudu and CTI. Roy's vibes can be heard on most of the tracks – and the records also have some nice keyboard work from either Pat Rebillot or Charles "Bags" Costello. Includes a great version of Roy's funky "Fuzz" , plus his tracks "Fire Weaver", "Foxy Brown" and "Sweet Tears". Other titles include "Symponette", "3/4/ Of The Time", "Brandy", "Song For The New Man", "Baby Rae", and "Let Me Know". CD

Always exciting work from the Wicked Pickett – a set that's filled with sharp-edged soul tracks throughout – and which perfectly shows why Wilson was a key link between funk and soul back in the 60s! The album was recorded at the two great hubs of southern soul production in the 60s – Memphis and Muscle Shoals – and the tracks includes some key Pickett reworkings of other hits into his own classics, plus a few more penned for the album that are equally as great! Titles include "In The Midnight Hour", "Land Of 1000 Dances", "Something You Got", "Mercy Mercy", "Danger Zone", "It's All Over", "99 & 1/2 Won't Do", and "634-5789". CD

Epic/Collectables, 1977. Used ... $6.99
Stranger things have happened, to be sure – but who'd have thought that the Kasenetz-Katz team, onetime hit bubblegum producers at Kama-Sutra, would score big with a 70s rock version of an old Leadbelly song? "Black Betty" did just that – and if Ram Jam are remembered for one thing on this planet, it will be their choppy guitar reading of this old folksy number, redone as kind of a choppy funky ZZ Top-ish track. Unfortunately, the rest of the record's not that great, and it kind of falls into the formula of the big hit. CD

Titles include "It'll Never Be Over For Me", "Your Fool", "Hey Lonely", "Run My Heart", "There He Is", "Careless Hands", and "Go On" – plus the better-known "I Can't Wait Until I See My Baby's Face".

Alithia/Collectables, 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great album of sweet soul – and one recorded by a bunch of prisoners at the Rahway Correctional Facility! This was the group's second album, and by this point, three of the members had left prison – hence the "3 Down, 4 To Go" title – but that change in status doesn't stop the group from being as great as they are on their debut – and as before, George Kerr produced the set, and gives the whole thing a sweet New Jersey harmony soul sound – one to rival the best groups of the All Platinum/Stang era! Tracks include "Disrespect Can Wreck", "Corruption", "Brother", "We've Gone Too Far To End It Now", "La La Means I Love You", "The Shoo Nough", and "Let's Make Love (At Home Sometimes)". CD

Classic harmony soul from the Philly scene – a set of 14 tracks by The Ethics, a key group in the shift from doo wop to soul!

Collectables, 1962. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Although she's best remembered for the title track to this one – a solid hit if there ever was one – Barbara's also a pretty darn good interpreter of original and standard material, with a style that shows roots that stretch back deeper than some of her other 60s soul contemporaries. This hard to find record features some great backing, and production by Juggy Murray – and it includes the title hit, plus "Whip O Will", "Without Love", "Love", "Hurted", and "Honest I Do." CD

Polydor/Collectables, 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Mandrill's first album of funky Latin jazz and soul – a landmark in crossover styles that still sounds remarkably fresh today! Unlike later records, which feature a tighter funk sound, this one has the band jamming out in a Latin-inflected mode that sounds like some of the best Chicano bands from LA during the early 70s. There's loads of funky flute, sweet organ riffing, and heavy drum and bass interplay. Includes the extended suite "Peace & Love", plus other funky goodies like "Symphonic Revolution", "Rollin' On", "Warning Blues", and "Mandrill". CD

✨✧ Paragons & The JestersParagons Meet The Jesters (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Collectables, 1959. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Harmony soul heaven – a rare double-header from two hip New York groups! Both The Paragons and Jesters have a fantastic approach – heavy on group vocal interplay, in ways that really show the evolution of doo wop in the early soul years! There's a heartbreaking quality to many of the cuts here – really the ground work for tighter harmony soul of the late 60s and early 70s – and the recording quality definitely lives up to the "tuff" look on the cover image. CD is overflowing with bonus material – and includes 18 numbers in all – titles that include "Florence", "Vows Of Love", "Stick With Me Baby", "Twilight" by The Paragons – and "Please Let Me Love You", "The Plea", "Oh Baby", and "The Wind" by The Jesters.

✨✧ SlaveHardness Of The World/Concept ... CD
Cotillion/Collectables, 1977/1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
2 masterpieces of mainstream funk from Slave – back to back on one CD! Hardness Of The World is a wickedly tight batch of funk that helped set a new level for countless other groups to come! Slave have an impeccable groove here that's free from some of the over-indulgent jamming and too-bassy funk that wrecked so many other groups at the time – and instead, they've got a finely-honed sound that's all compressed around the rhythms, yet which also opens up spaciously with other soulful elements. The mellow cuts are as great as the harder numbers – and the set includes the great instrumental "Baby Sinister", plus "The Party Song", "Life Can Be Happy", "The World's On Hard", "We Can Make Love", and "Volcano Rupture". The Concept features Slave's first work with drummer Steve Arrington, who not only opened up their rhythmic concept, but also gave them a great new sound on lead vocals! Arrington's approach here is very much in the spirit of Slave's first 2 records – a lean, mean approach to funk that never goes too far over the top, but which also has a wide-open sound that's instantly appealing – and which makes Slave as much of a top-shelf soul act as they are a funky combo. Great all the way through – with a tightness and on-the-money sound few others can match – and featuring the cuts "We've Got Your Party", "The Way You Love Is Heaven", "Just Freak", "Coming Soon", "Drac Is Back", and "Stellar Fungk". 15 tracks in all.

Collectables, Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Nice one! This is a 20-track compilation that features the best stuff by the legendary Soul Generation, one of the early 70's best soul harmony groups. The CD includes all the material from their rare LP, which is a real mix of sweeter group sounds with a tuffer ganster feel (the cover has the group dressed up like a bunch of super pimps) – and it's also got a lot of other non-LP single cuts. Includes the massive cut "Super Fine", one of our faves of all time, plus "Black Man", "All's Well", "Hooked On You", "What's In It For Me", "She Comes Up", "Million Dollars", and "In Your Way". A lot like the Whatnauts, if you know what we mean, and totally great 70's soul! CD

✨✧ Jo StaffordGetting Sentimental Over Tommy Dorsey ... CD
Reprise/Collectables, 1963. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Jo Stafford gets sentimental over Tommy Dorsey – but in sweet swinging ways that really reflect the 60s setting of the record! In other words, the tunes may be a bit old – but they're recast in more modern arrangements here by Nelson Riddle, Billy May, and Benny Carter – all of whom add in some 60s cool to help the record match the energy of other vocal jazz sessions on Reprise at the time! Jo does a great job with the material, and really sounds fresher here than on some of her previous jazz sets – especially those for other labels. Titles include "I'll Never Smile Again", "Oh Look At Me Now", "Whatcha Know Joe", "Yes Indeed", and "The Night We Called It A Day". CD

Sue/Collectables, Mid 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Incredible early work from Ike & Tina – done in a raw and rootsy style, without any of the cliches of later work! The sound here is incredible – the best of Ike's dark R&B years instrumentally grooving at the bottom, while Tina belts the tunes out in an approach that's even more unfettered than any of her later recordings. Wonderful stuff throughout, and filled with original tunes by Ike that include "Sleepless", "You Can't Love Two", "If", "I Idolize You", "I'm Jealous", and "Chances Are". CD

Columbia/Collectables, 1964. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Very hip piano trio work – the first 2 Columbia albums by Denny Zeitlin, a young fresh talent in the 60s, with an approach that was lyrical, slightly modern, and a bit soulful. This is especially the case on the Cathexis album, which features a great rhythm section of Cecil McBee on bass and Freddy Waits on drums. Carnival is a bit more free flowing – with Charlie Haden doing some great bass, making a rare small group appearance here. Most tunes are originals by Zeitlin – and titles include "Stonehenge", "Cathexis", "Repeat", "I Thou", "After The War", "Carnival", and "Carole's Garden". CD

✨✧ John Lee HookerFolk Lore Of John Lee Hooker ... CD
Vee Jay/Collectables, 1961. Used ... Out Of Stock
Hardly a folk album, despite the title – and instead a wicked batch of raw bluesy numbers from the mighty John Lee Hooker! Two of the album's tracks were recorded live at the Newport Folk Fest, but the rest were done back in Chicago – with lots of gritty vocals and guitar from Hooker, plus some occasional extra backing on a few of the cuts – including some harmonica and guitar from Jimmy Reed. The album's a perfect illustration of Vee Jay's classic approach to blues – almost more impressive than that of Chess Records in a setting like this – on cuts that include "Tupelo", "I'm Mad Again", "Take Me As I Am", "The Hobo", "You're Looking Good Tonight", and "I'm Going Upstairs".

✨✧ Cheryl LynnIn The Night/Instant Love ... CD
Columbia/Collectables, 1981/1982. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
2 of Cheryl Lynn's early killers for Columbia – back to back on one CD! In The Night is an album of tight, bouncy, joyous soul all the way through – free from any of the too-commercial touches that sometimes slowed Cheryl's later work! Ray Parker Jr produced the set – and he as well is free from the slicker sounds of his hits – keeping things warm, personal, and real on most of the album's best tracks – and balancing Cheryl nicely between heartfelt mellow tracks and a few more uptempo tunes designed to keep her on the minds of the dancefloor scene. Titles include "In The Night", "Baby", "What's On Your Mind", "Hurry Home", and "With Love On Our Side". Instant Love has Cheryl Lynn working with Luther Vandross – a tremendous combination that makes for one heck of a great record! Luther arranged and produced the entire set – and he does a great job here of pushing Cheryl Lynn into more upbeat territory without getting too poppy or schmaltzy! In a way, the record shows traces of some of Luther's best work for other artists (and himself) in the late 70s – an approach to club that's still plenty darn soulful, and which really lets Lynn open up with tremendous vocals. Titles include a famous remake of "If This World Were Mine" – done as a duet with Luther – plus "I Just Wanna Be Your Fantasy", "Instant Love", "Sleep Walkin", "Day After Day", "Look Before You Leap", and "Say You'll Be Mine".

Collectables, 1958/1960. Used ... Out Of Stock
For some odd reason, the Collectables label chose to release albums by two different artists on one CD. We should be mad at them for that, but we can't get that angry, since we're extremely happy to have this Jimmy Giuffre album back in print again! Travelin' Light is one of Giuffre's best albums of all time, and the record is a perfect realization of his piano-less/bass-less trio style. The group is simply Bob Brookmeyer on trombone, Jim Hall on guitar, and Giuffre on reeds – and the sound is amazing! Notes hang in mid-air, slowly sliding around one another, flying freely from the players, yet still managing to swing in a beautiful way. The titles are a mix of standards and originals – but all tracks sound completely unique, with a sound unlike anything else we can describe. Cuts include "Swamp People", "Lonely Time", "Green Country", and "Travelin Light". The Mabel Mercer album? Consider it a bonus! CD

✨✧ Chico HamiltonNomad ... CD
Elektra/Collectables, 1980. Used ... Out Of Stock
Electric funky Chico Hamilton! This one's an oft-overlooked gem from the end of the 70s – a batch of sweet electric fusion tunes that sounds unlike anything else we can think of by Chico – with a cool and spacey sound that feels more like work coming out of Fantasy Records at the time, or CTI years before, than mainstream jazz on a major label! The album was produced by Wayne Henderson, and has a sweetly soulful quality that's really great – adding in some backing vocals on a few tracks for a mellow, Henderson-esque soul approach – and going for some more full-on jazz grooving on other numbers. The set features lots of great guitar and keyboard work – still in the exotic rhythm progressions that you'd recognize from Chico's earlier years, but given a great 70s electric twist! Tracks include "Mysterious Maiden", "Alekasam", "Nomad", "Strut", and "Magic Fingers". CD
