Dazz BandWild & Free (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Geffen/PTG (Netherlands), 1986. New Copy ... $10.99
The Dazz Band may be wild and free in the title, but the album's tighter than ever – a lean, focused approach to the Dazz Band sound – done here with loads of 80s production and instrumentation in the mix! The rhythms are heavy with drum machine lines – often mixed with keyboard bits and swirled together with a sound that's even more crossover than some of the group's earlier work. Vocals often take a back seat to the grooves – but on the ballads they shine through nicely, and remind us of the group's roots. Titles include "The Beat That's Right", "Wild & Free", "Love MIA", "Sunglasses", "Something You Said", and "Time Will Heal A Broken Heart". CD features bonus tracks – "Wild & Free (ext dance rmx)", "Last Chance For Love", "Love MIA (house mix)", and "A Place In My Heart". CD

✨✧ Dazz BandHot Spot (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Motown/FTG, 1985. Used ... Out Of Stock
The Dazz Band are in a definite hot spot here – the group's final album for Motown, and a record that's filled with the kind of catchy crossover funk they did better than most! The set snaps into a groove right from the very first note – with that electro funk that Motown served up big in the wake of Rick James, and which the Dazz Band only improve with their rock-solid sound on the set – a mode that has all the instrumental elements coming down sharp on the rhythms, topped by some back/forth group vocals that almost have a Jacksons vibe – except for the tracks in which they get processed with a bit of electro-soul modes! Titles include "If Only You Were In My Shoes", "Hot Spot", "Paranoid", "All The Way", "She Used To Be My Girl", "When You Need Roses", and Slow Rap". This Funky Town Grooves edition has 5 bonus tracks – 12-inch versions and alternate mixes of album tracks and more – including "Hot Spot (Club Mix)", "Heartbeat (12" Version)", "Let It All Blow (Special Disco Remix)", "Swoop (I'm Yours) (12" Version)" and "Joystick (Vocal 12").

✨✧ Dazz BandInvitation To Love (with bonus track) ... CD
Motown/PTG (Netherlands), 1980. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A killer start to the 80s for the Dazz Band – with great tunes in a funky mode as well as more measured group soul numbers – and it all adds up one of their best albums ever! Tunes like the opener "Shake It", plus "Shake It Up" and "Magnetized" bring the funkier vibes – with a vamping guitar, thumping bass groove, punchy horns, and top notch vocals from the group – while tunes like the title track and "Beyond The Horizon" have a more soaring arrangement of horns and some strings,still with an impeccable core groove. It's not as smoothed out in the production booth as some of their later grooves of the 80s – a total gem! Other titles include " Skate Lovers", "Carry On", "Do It Again", "Do It Again", "Sooner Or Later" and "Beyond The Horizon". CD includes the bonus track single version of "Invitation Of Love". CD

✨✧ Dazz BandKeep It Live (with bonus track) ... CD
Motown/Vinyl Masterpiece (Netherlands), 1982. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Dazz Band keep it plenty live on this early 80s gem – a killer set from the group's hit run for Motown! The set's got a bouncy groove that's very much in the best Motown funk style at the time – lots of bass at the bottom, and plenty tight on production – but never as smooth or commercial as work from a few years later. The group balance things out well with a few mellower cuts – numbers that still have some sort of a groove, but one that's a bit more laidback, and which shows they're not just a funk-driven outfit. Titles include the massive hit "Let It Whip" – plus "Gamble With My Love", "Just Can't Wait 'Till The Night", "Shake What You Got", "Keep It Live", and "Let Me Love You Until". CD also features the bonus track "Let It Whip (12" version)". CD

Motown, 1960s/1970s/1980s/1990s. New Copy 11CDs ... $99.99 169.99
An amazing package – one that comes in a tiny replica of the original home of Motown Records in Detroit!

Super EaglesSenegambian Sensation – The Original Madal Ly & More Ndagga Music ... CD
Retro Afric (UK), 1960s/1970s. Used ... $28.99
Classic material from one of Gambia's greatest bands! This staunchly modern group shook things up at home in the late 60s, playing through Marshall amps and dressing in thrift store duds for a sartorial splendor at home with Swinging London. The band covered "Hey Jude" and wrote some dazzling original rock-soul tunes – including the great "Love's A Real Thing", recently heard as the title track of Luaka Bop's African psychedelic collection – but more importantly they embraced and updated the traditional styles that most contemporary bands ignored. Singing in Wolof and broken English they forged a beguiling mix of highlife, Congolese rumba, and Afro-Cuban forms, blending in native Mandinka, Fula, and Jola traditions, all delivered with a crisp, rhythmic propulsion. Tracks include "Mandal Ly", "Viva Super Eagles", "Aduna Poti Ndala", "Aliou Gori-Mami", and "Bada Tourey". CD

✨✧ VariousNick Cave Heard Them Here First ... CD
Ace (UK), 1950s/1960s/1970s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Nick Cave is a man of many influences – sounds from so many different styles of music, which he's used to forge into his own uniquely personal style over the years! And Cave's never been secret about the music that moves him, either – and always gives credit where credit's due – both by referencing important influences in his interviews, and by covering their work on his records. That latter side of Nick's recordings is collected here – the original versions of songs that Cave later recorded himself – a really rich tapestry of rock, soul, jazz, country, and blues from the 20s onwards – but with an especially strong focus on the postwar years. There's a surprising sense of unity to the collection – despite the difference in years and artists – and titles include "Long Time Man" by Tim Rose, "Hey Joe" by The Leaves, "Tower Of Song" by Leonard Cohen, "Bedazzled" by Peter Cook & Dudley Moore, "Long Black Veil" by Lefty Frizzell, "There's No Night Out In The Jail" by Chad Morgan, "Burnin Hell" by John Lee Hooker, "Knoxville Girl" by The Louvin Brothers, "The Big Hurt" by Toni Fisher, "Moritat" by Harald Paulson, and "Hammer Song" by The Sensational Alex Harvey Band.

✨✧ Bembeya Jazz NationalSyliphone Years ... CD
Sterns (UK), 1960s/1970s. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
An awe-inspiring mother lode of classic Guinean grooves from one of Africa's greatest bands! Senegal's Orchestra Baobab have become the media favorite of Africa's golden era, but it only takes one spin of this fabulous anthology to realize that Bembeya Jazz National were as good as any band the continent ever produced. As the title says, this material is culled from the recordings the band made for the great state-owned Syliphone label, and it reflects an era of dazzling creative potency – sensual Afro-Cuban tropes are blended into a powerful mix of Mande melodies, sashaying grooves, and jaw-dropping solos. Most of this collection features lead vocals by the sweet and soulful Aboubacar Demba Camara, who died in a tragic car accident in 1973, while the prodigiously talented Sekou "Diamond Fingers" Diabate unspools one astonishing lead after another. A still-powerful version of the group reunited in 2001, but nothing can match these recordings. Truly essential stuff! Tracks include "Dembaty Galant", "Waraba", "Super Tentemba", "Fatoumata", and "Sina Mousso". CD
