Blues CreationDemon & Eleven Children ... LP
Denon/Sony (Japan), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $49.99 59.99
A mindblowing set from early 70s Japan – and a record that's every bit as sinister as you'd guess from its title! Blues Creation certainly started out with a blues influence in their music, but like some of the headier British groups of the moment, they've turned that love of guitar lines and heavy rhythms into some much more brooding territory – hard rock, but with a current of evil that was never in their inspirations – almost as if these guys have shaken off the blues, and are ready to show the world that they're a force to be reckoned with! The guitar work is superb – really top-shelf classic jamming level – and titles include "Atomic Bombs Away", "Demon & Eleven Children", "One Summer Day", "Brane Baster", and "Just I Was Born".

Cliff MartinezNeon Demon – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack ... CD
Milan, 2016. Used ... $19.99 24.99
Moody soundtrack genius from Cliff Martinez – a cat who's becoming the John Carpenter of the 21st Century, thanks to his great ear for a spare sound, and his wonderful way with an eerie keyboard line! Those qualities have always been strong in Cliff's music, but they really come to the forefront here – on a set that would be right at home next to some of the classics by Carpenter or Giorgio Moroder, produced with a sound that's very vintage, but has a uniquely spooky sound of its own. Titles include "Real Lolita Rides Again", "What Are You", "Gold Paint Shoot", "Take Off Your Shoes", "Neon Demon", "Lipstick Drawing", "Ruby's Close Up", "Something's In My Room", and "Get Her Out Of Me".

✨✧ Fred Myrow/Jerry FieldingSoylent Green/Demon Seed ... CD
Film Score Monthly, 1973/1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A pair of soundtracks for two of the creepiest horror movies of the 70s – back to back on a single CD, and given the top-shelf Film Score Monthly treatment! First up is the score for Soylent Green – a mix of very moody, unusually-toned passages that are mixed with some mellower, jazzier numbers that offset things nicely – composed by Fred Myrow, but also given a bit of help from horror maestro Gerald Fried! The music is definitely above the norm – not just in the higher budget, but also in the way that things come together sonically – at a level that makes for a lot of surprises throughout – on titles that include "Tab's Pad/Furniture Party", "Shirl & Thorn", "Home Lobby Source", "Can I Do Something For You", and "Sol's Music". Demon Seed is a great one from Jerry Fielding – definitely at the darker side of his sonic spectrum, which is pretty darn fitting, given that the film involves a computer having sex with Julie Christie! There's a sense of evil that resonates in the music right from the start – a mode that's partially borrowed from the Italian giallo generation, but which is given a more varied approach here, often at a level that's very low in the sonic spectrum. Tracks include "Birth Scene", "Probed Or Put To Bed", "Last Voyage", and "Closing Crawl". CD features almost 80 minutes of music – and detailed notes on both scores! CD

Horace AndyKing Tubby Tapes ... LP
Jet Star/Demon (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $32.99 33.99
A double dose of Horace Andy – a set that first features some of his great vocal recordings with King Tubby – the follows up with a second disc that offers up all sorts of dub versions by Tubby himself! Andy's vocals are wonderful – soulfully crafted in the early years of reggae, and at their prime here – on cuts that include material from his Pure Ranking album, and other gems at the time – tunes that include "Set Me Free", "It Grieve My Heart", "Sodom & Gomorrah", "Totally Free", "Leaders Of Babylon", "Liberation", and "Natural Mystic". Then, the second disc features dubs by Tubby – titles that include "Dubbing Around", "I Love My Dub", "Set Me Dub", "Liberation Dub", "Leader Of Dub", and "Dub Is The One". LP, Vinyl record album

A great late moment from The Creation – a set that was issued in the mid 90s, on the Creation Records label that took its name and inspiration from the group – and which features the original 1966 lineup of the band! The production style has maybe a bit of that later UK psych moodiness, but in a way that really helps reinvigorate the group's sound – not too commercial, but also not an easy retro rehash either – as the group sound surprisingly strong on titles that include "City Life", "Power Surge", "Someone's Gonna Bleed", "Creation", "Shock Horror", "Free Men Live Forever", "Ghost Division", and "English Language".

Sleeping Bag/Demon (UK), 1986. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
The second great album from Mantronix, and one that really has their sound coming together in an amazing way! Mantronik puts together all these amazingly crisp sounds that not only help redefine the edge of hip hop, but also seem prescient for the direction that so many other styles would take in years to come – almost as if he was imagining the future of hip hop and of electronic music at the same time in this set. MC Tee provides the rhymes, and Chep Nunez edits the whole thing with a great ear for all the high spots – on titles that include "Music Madness", "Who Is It", "We Control The Dice", "Electronic Energy Of", "Scream", "Big Band B-Boy", and "Mega Mix".

Vaughan Mason & CrewBounce, Rock, Skate, Roll ... LP
Brunswick/Demon (UK), 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
Massive! This is probably the best-ever album of rollerskating grooves – and is the most famous entry into a short-lived funk genre that sprung up around the rollerskating craze of the late 70s and early 80s. The rollerskate sound took a tight stepping funk groove from earlier years, and mixed it with the extended instrumental style of club music – creating a sound that was a mix of funk and disco that worked perfectly for skating around a track, and which had a huge influence on the beat of early hip hop. The centerpiece of the album's the massive sample track "Bounce, Rock, Skate, Roll" – an instantly recognizable number that features tight vamping guitar and good choppy rhythms. The cut's offered up here in 2 parts – and the rest of the record's just as great, with titles that include "Roller Skate", "We're Gonna Funk You Up", and "Thinking About You Baby".

Percy MayfieldWalking On A Tightrope ... LP
Brunswick/Demon (UK), Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99 29.99
Great work from R&B legend Percy Mayfield – one of the singer's most obscure sessions, and really more of a soul record overall! The album was done for Brunswick at the end of the 60s – and has lots of work from Chicago soul arrangers like Johnny Cameron and Willie Henderson – both of whom give the set a nice sort of west side kick, with a groove that's somewhere in between Syl Johnson and Tyrone Davis! Mayfield's vocals definitely still hang onto an older school of singing – but the arrangements can't help but update his groove – and a number of the tracks have this great funky crackle at the bottom that's a mighty nice surprise. Titles include "I Made It Just The Same", "Alma Lee", "My Baby's Gone", "To Me Your Name Is Love", "PM Blues", and "Danger Zone". LP, Vinyl record album

Step By StepI Always Wanted To Be In The Band ... LP
Brunswick/Demon (UK), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99 36.99
Quite possibly the greatest soul band ever to come out of Milwaukee – and a tight little ensemble who've got a really great sound! The overall feel of their work is a bit hard to peg – as the group are equally great at mellow midtempo group numbers as they are at tighter, clubbier tunes that snap with a bit more of a horn-heavy sound – and throughout the record there's a really playful feel that shows that whatever the sound, whatever the setting, these guys just had a heck of a great time working with each other! That quality can be heard especially well on the title track "I Always Wanted To Be In The Band" – a great little number that's almost an updating of the TSU Tornadoes sound for the 70s – but the whole set's great, and other tracks move into some great super-dope production that we really love! Titles include "I Am A Lonely Man", "People", "Cool Days Are Out Of Style", "I Ain't Never Gonna Let You Go", and "Cash Money". LP, Vinyl record album

Total EclipseGreat Combination ... LP
BRC/Demon (UK), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99 27.99
A great combination of funk and soul – upbeat and mellow on the same album, served up by this rare indie combo from the 70s! The album's one of the few to appear on the elite BRC imprint of Brunswick Records – home to some incredible work over just a very short stretch, including this near-perfect set of sounds from Total Eclipse! The record begins with a few mellow numbers that would be right at home in the New Jersey soul scene of the early 70s – then rolls into some upbeat funk tracks that aren't disco at all, but show that quicker variant of funk that came to the forefront back when the clubs still had a nice sort of edge. Instrumentation includes lots of offbeat touches on the rhythms – and some cool moog on one track – and lead singer Bernard Fowler has this great quality that's heartbreaking when it wants to be, and positive at other moments. Titles include "St Albans Strut", "Midtown", "A Great Combination", "Loneliness", "Space Boogie", and "Plain Insane". LP, Vinyl record album

The great debut of The Valentine Brothers – a male soul duo who really helped find a newly sophisticated style at the end of the 70s – while still also managing to groove as well! The pair have a vibe that's a bit like the music coming out of Philly International at the time – post-disco, but still great for the clubs – given some excellent help here from the mighty Richard Evans on both production and arrangements – a talent you'll know from his own great albums, and some Chicago soul classics – still going very strong here! Titles include the duo's surprisingly strong soul take on "The Sound Of Music" – plus "We Belong Together", "Let Me Be The One", "I'm In Love", "Feelings Inside", "King Size Bed", and "Love Me Like You Mean It".

WarlockWarlock ... LP
Music Merchant/Demon (UK), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99 27.99
One of the stranger chapters of the Holland-Dozier-Holland story of the early 70s – and one of the coolest, too! Warlock are a jazzy rock combo with plenty of soul – a bit like a twisted version of Blood Sweat & Tears, but with all the sinister energy you'd guess from the image on the cover! Most of the numbers have a nasty scratchy sort of vocal – almost Alice Cooper-ish, in keeping with the Warlock name of the group – but a few others get a bit more soulful and funky, belying the HDH connection of the group – sometimes even showing a righteous jazzy vibe, as kind of an odd echo of the Detroit Tribe Records scene. The best tracks have some jazzy phrasing in the mix, and let the guitars go off to the side – and titles include "Love Girl", "You've Been My Rock", "So Can Woman", "Thrills Of Love", and the 14 minute jammer "As You Die/Music Box", which almost has a Colosseum build to it!

Brilliant work from one of the greatest soul labels ever – the mighty mighty Brunswick Records, home to some of the greatest work coming out of Chicago in the 60s and early 70s! The set really does a great job of moving past the hits – bringing together an assortment of hard to find tracks that mostly originally appeared on 45, and which were done by some of the more obscure artists who recorded for the label. Brunswick titles have appeared on so many compilations that you might pass this one by – but don't, because it's filled with great bits that go way past the obvious! Titles include "Suddenly" by Tony Drake, "Sweetest Thing" by Channel 3, "Bet You Never Thought" by Gene Chandler, "The Chase Is On" by The Artistics, "I'll Bet You" by Billy Butler, "Oh Linda" by Leroy Taylor, "Don't Take It Out On This World" by Adams Apples, "Have More Time" by Marvin Smith, "I'm In Danger" by The Visitors, and "Keep Your Chin Up" by Jackie Ross.

VariousEddie Piller Presents British Mod Sounds Of The 60s ... LP
Demon (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 2LP ... $39.99 47.99
There's few folks who know the British mod scene better than Eddie Piller – as the DJ and head of Acid Jazz records has done plenty in recent decades to both give exposure to older British groups who never got their due, and also help some contemporary mod combos get the exposure they deserve! Yet here, Eddie's going way back to the roots – to present a set of tracks that really gets at the full scope of musical genius that exploded on the British scene in the mid 60s – not music that us Americans were digging in the Brit Invasion, but grittier groups who were drawing heavily from soul, jazz, and R&B – and really setting the scene for all the musical changes that were beginning to take place in England. At some level, this might be the first moment where British groups really started to diverge from American rockers – something you can definitely hear in the way the rhythms, vocals, and instrumentation come together – superbly directed through Piller's great choice of material. 2LP set features a whopping 34 tracks in all – with work from Sharon Tandy, The Eyes, Carnaby, The Creation, Birds, Fleur De Lys, Syndicats, Wynder K Frog, Bluesology, Love Affair, PP Arnold, Apostolic Intervention, Alan Bown Set, The Quik, John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers, Georgie Fame, Small Faces, High Numbers, Artwoods, Geno Washington & The Ram Jam Band, Richard Kent Style, Dusty Springfield, The Organisers, Tony & Tandy, and Jimmy James & The Vagabonds.

Richmond/Demon (UK), 1960s/1970s. Used ... $6.99 9.99
A nice little collection of Chicago soul – featuring mostly Carl Davis-produced tracks from the Brunswick and Chi-Sound labels, stretching back to the late 60s, and running up until the end of the 70s. There's a good mix of styles on here – but the work is all strongly linked by Davis' high level of quality in the studio, and by his willingness to keep a nice groove in a track, no matter what the pace. Titles include "There It Is" by Lionel Hampton, "Oh Boy" by Dana Valery, "It's Cool" by Walter Jackson, "Lady Lady Lady" by Barbara Acklin, "Wrapped, Tied, & Tangled" by Lavern Baker, "Especially For You" by Manchild, "Come To My Party" by The Impressions, "The Girl Turned Me On" by Jackie Wilson, "Windy City Theme" by Windy City Orchestra, and "Love Uprising" by Otis Leavill.

T Rex's phenomenal second album since moving into a heavier glam mode, following the great Electric Warrior LP – still standing firmly as one of the best purely rocking, trashy fun rock & roll albums of the 70s! Marc Bolan's roots on spacier psyche folk melodies sort of float over beefier, fuzzier, sleazier hooks – a facet of the T Rex sound that always set them apart from the pack of more rote guitar rock guys & gals, and this peak material.

All the later charms of the Doctor are here – but the tunes are maybe a bit shorter, with an excellent vibe that's never overdone – yet which still has that blend of trippiness and voodoo soul that nobody else can do this well.

These aren't spare acoustic cuts with just Tim on vocals and guitar – and instead the music features a full band that really adds a lot of energy to Buckley's vocals – which are already completely fantastic here, and at that level that set him apart from so many other singers of his generation!

Sharon Paige is the lady here – and she creates a nice sense of interplay with the male singers in the group – that sort of back and forth that you might find in some of Al Hudson's work with One Way, or in a variety of other funky club acts who were rising in the mainstream at the time. Harold Melvin produced, and there's some definite late Philly moments in the tracks "Prayin" and "Baby I'm Back" – but the greatest charm of the album possibly comes from tracks that change things up a bit, including "I Should Be Your Lover", "Tonight's The Night", and "Your Love Is Taking Me On A Journey".

Chi Sound/Demon, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful look at the later years of Chicago soul – a collection that brings together work from Chi-Sound Records, the imprint formed by producer Carl Davis after years of working with Windy City artists on labels like Okeh and Brunswick! Both Davis and the Chicago scene were reaching a new level of sophistication by the time Chi-Sound got its start – and the label took a keen cue from the Philly scene, and had its artists move into a broader range of work than just chart-bound singles – much more adult-oriented material that reflected the maturity of the artists, and the growth of an older middle class market for contemporary soul. As you'll hear on this set, Davis had a great way with a smooth tune – taking many older artists and allowing them to either re-record classic hits, or move towards material they wouldn't have been allowed to touch in earlier years. Titles include the massive "Windy City Theme" by The Windy City Orchestra – plus "Fan The Fire" by The Impressions, "Touching In The Dark" by Walter Jackson, "Does She Have A Friend" by Gene Chandler, "I Choose You" by Paris, "Passionate Breezes" by The Dells, "Taking It To The Streets" by Manchild, "So Sexy" by Sydney Joe Qualls, "Get Down (12" version)" by Gene Chandler, "Watchin You Watchin Me" by Ebony Rhythm Funk Campaign, "Red Hot Daddy" by Manchild, "It's Cool" by Walter Jackson, and "All About The Paper" by The Dells.

King sung famously on many rock and soul sessions during the 60s and 70s – but she's a great talent in the spotlight, and really helps to give the record a lot of focus – uniting the group's mix of deep soul and southern elements – lots of burning underneath the rhythms, and horns compressed over the top – in a style that's a bit Muscle Shoals, but more restrained overall, and with a few moments that go for more of an east coast feel.

The work here is a mix of upbeat dancefloor numbers and mellower harmony cuts – and even at this early stage, Castor's clearly a powerhouse in soul – really able to get his bag together, and deliver a tune with a tightness that's totally great – especially given that the Winley Records production still keeps an edge in the music that's plenty darn raw! There's plenty of charm, and a great sense of variety in the tunes – and titles include "Poor Loser", "Block Party", "Soul Sister", "Rattle Snake", "It's OK", "A Dream Affair", "Oh Susanna", and "Hangin Out".

Winley/Demon (UK), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A legendary album – and for good reason too – a set that's as mysterious as it is funky, and a record that's stayed at the top of our crates for years! The album features a really unusual collective of musicians, pulled together under the guidance of producer Paul Winley – a group that features George Benson on guitar, Dave Baby Cortez on organ, Willis Jackson on tenor sax, and Earl Williams on some massively funky drums! The music's a mix of funky jazz and gritty soul – put together with some really weird studio touches – including an uncredited male voice that comes in and out of the tracks, bad-rapping along with some very hip commentary. Ann Winley sings the female vocals on the set – often egged on by the dude – but the real charm of the record lies at the bottom – the wicked drums, funky basslines, and choppy instrumental bits that have gotten the set sampled plenty over the years. Titles include the classic "Smokin Cheeba Cheeba" alone, the groovy "Finger In It", a great breakbeat version of "Ain't No Sunshine" with a tenor solo by Willis Jackson, and the slow bluesy talking cut "Fed Up", a baaaad rap about a couple splitting up – done here in both vocal and instrumental versions.

Odyssey 5 hail from North Carolina, and they've got an ensemble female vocal style that's a bit like Voices Of East Harlem, but with rootsier southern soul touches – and a righteous quality that we totally love!. Alonzo Tucker produced the album with a real full-on sound – and although some cuts have a standout female lead, most tunes feature the group trading vocals pretty strongly together – in a really great way that makes the best cuts super-catchy.

Wilson's really at home in the setting – re-emerging as a more mature, confident singer with a lot better choice of material, too – none of the mis-steps of his early 60s Brunswick years, and instead the kind of cuts that put him in territory next to Gene Chandler or Jerry Butler. The arrangements are mostly by Sonny Sanders – with a bit of help from Johnny Pate and Tom Tom Washington – all cats who keep things in some really great territory, and actually bring a bit of funk into the mix as well. Titles include "To Change My Love", "Why Don't You Do Your Thing", "Light My Fire", "Helpless", "Eleanor Rigby", and "Hold On I'm Comin". LP, Vinyl record album

Burt Bacharach (composer)Always Something There – A Burt Bacharach Collector's Anthology 1952 to 1969 ... CD
Ace (UK), 1950s/1960s. New Copy ... $9.99 18.99
Rare Bacharach galore – an assortment of under-reissued tracks all penned by the mighty Burt – most of which are from the heyday of 60s uptown soul! Despite the 1952 in the date range on the title, almost all the tunes here are from the mid 60s – that time when Bacharach was writing new tunes like a demon, and getting most of them recorded by a range of great talents on the New York scene. Singers are a good mix of soul, pop, rock, and vocal artists – and although the material was done for a variety of different labels, there's a relatively unified feel – thanks to that snapping syncopation that Burt always brought to work like this. CD features 26 titles in all – including "How About" by Della Reese, "Third Window From The Right" by Dean Barlow, "I Wake Up Crying" by Del Shannon, "I Looked For You" by Charlie Gracie, "That's Not The Answer" by Vi Velasco, "More Time To Be With You" by Brook Benton, "Three Friends" by The Turbans, "Move It On The Backbeat" by Burt & The Backbeats, "You're Telling Our Secrets" by Dee Clark, "Thirty Miles Of Railroad Track" by The Hammond Brothers, "The Story Of My Life" by Big Al Downing, "Made In Paris" by Trini Lopez, "Rain From The Skies" by Adam Wade, and "True Love Never Runs Smooth" by Don & Juan.

Ronnie BoykinsWill Come Is Now (aka Ronnie Boykins) (180 gram pressing) ... LP
ESP, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99 26.99
A rare non-Sun Ra session from bassist Ronnie Boykins! Boykins was one of Ra's most long-term players – a key part of the Arkestra for many years – but on this album, he hits a totally different sound –and one that's somewhat spiritual as well! The group's got a great sax-heavy sound that comes from a trio of reedmen – Monty Waters, Joe Ferguson, and James Vass – handling alto, tenor, soprano, and flute between them – often in a tight line at the head, then breaking out into some wonderfully personal solos – played with such feeling that almost makes us think that Boykins was a much more sensitive musician than he ever got the chance to be with Sun Ra. The tunes have a really beautiful sense of structure and soul – and the reedmen explode beautifully with their work, alongside a remaining lineup that features Daoud Haroom on trombone, Art Lewis on percussion, and George Avaloz on congas. Titles include "Tipping On Heels", "The Third I", "The Will Come, Is Now", "Starlight At The Wonder Inn", and "Demon's Dance". LP, Vinyl record album

Embryo, 1970. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $39.99
The one and only album by this righteous funky combo from Ohio! Although Brute Force were an American group of the late 60s, they've got a sound that brings in traces of the African rhythms that were bubbling under at the time – similar to some of the best London groups of the post-colonial years, like Cymande, Demon Fuzz, or Asiko. There's often a jagged and jazzy style on the bottom of the grooves, topped with brighter horn flourishes, and combined with a vocal approach that has some slight folksy touches – very hip, progressive, and as righteous as you'd expect from the cover! Sonny Sharrock sits in on some tracks, and the titles include "Some Kind Of Approval", "Doubt", "Ye Le Wa", "Do It Right Now", "The Deacon", and "Monster". LP, Vinyl record album

A set like this is seminal for understanding just how far rock music stepped in just a few short years – because back in the mid 60s, these guys might have been slavishly laying out blues riffs, or trying to copy their American heroes – but those roots are completely subsumed in the band's own style, and delivered with a dexterity that's truly amazing – a brash, balls-out quality that should be given everything it's trying to claim – because a record like this doesn't need to answer to anyone!

MombasaAfrican Rhythms & Blues 2 ... CD
Spiegelei/Sonorama (Germany), 1976. New Copy ... $9.99 19.99
The second album from Mombasa – and possibly even better than the first! The group have really come into their own by the time of this date – mixing together jazz and African roots with a sound that's unlike anyone else we can think of – quite unique in its approach to rhythms, sounds, and solos! The grooves aren't really the Afro Funk you might expect – and instead, they're based on a headier brew of basslines and percussion, one that's somewhere in a space between Boscoe, The Pharoahs, and Demon Fuzz – but with a sound that's ultimately different than both. The trombone of Lou Blackburn carries the lead on most tracks – snaking out wonderfully over the grooves, with a quality that's amazingly soulful, and which almost has him standing head to head with Fred Wesley as a 70s innovator on his instrument. Other members of the group include Doug Lucas on trumpet, Bob Reed on percussion, Alan Tatham on drums, and Don Ridgeway on electric bass – the last of whom really does a great job shaping the sound of the tunes. Titles include "Yenyeri", "Holz II", "Nomoli", "African Hustle", and "Al Rahman". CD

A rare solo effort from Danny Woods – a record cut away from Chairmen Of The Board during a stretch when the group had temporarily disbanded – and an excellent showcase for Danny's strength on his own! Woods is really wonderful here – with a proud, righteous quality that really soars out away from General Johnson and Harrison Kennedy – perfect for the righteous backings arranged by HB Barnum and McKinley Jackson – whose spirits really fit some of the more progressive modes of the music. There's plenty of upbeat, positive moments throughout – and titles include "Two Can Be As Lonely As One", "Let Me Ride", "It Didn't Take Long", "Everybody's Got A Song To Sing", "Working On A Building Of Love", and "Roller Coaster".

A hell of a cool little set – one that begins with obscure country songs about drug use, then moves onto a whole host of songs with themes of suicide, insanity, damnation, and redemption! The music is every bit as great as you'd guess from the title and cover – and the folks at Omni, who already do an amazing job with obscure country reissues, really knock it out of the park with this one – by pulling together two decades' worth of unusual tracks from the indie underground – all supported by great notes as well. The package is a heady journey through the underbelly of country – sounds you'd never hear on the charts – and titles include "Suicide" by Louie Innis, "Satan's Chauffeur" by Jimmy Minor, "Marijuana The Devil Flower" by Johnny Price, "LSD" by Wendell Austin, "The Needle" by Harry Snyder, "California Hippie Murders" by Red River Dave, "Demon Of Jealousy" by Jesse Bruce, "The Devil Was Laughing At Me" by Jimmy Newman, "Psycho" by Eddie Noack, "Hell Train" by Billy Strange, "Race With The Devil" by Johnny David, and "Fourteen Stories Down" by Don Bailey.

Demonic sounds, but surprisingly sweet as well – done with this easy-flowing style that's really wonderful – and much more similar to the seductive sound library work of Alessandro Alessandroni, than to some of the starker, darker horror of the time! There's definitely some spooky passages, but they're almost always warmed up in really nice ways – both with keyboards, and with these wordless vocals from the lovely Giulia De Mutiis, who drifts through the record like some sexy ghost. Her vocals almost give the whole thing a more dream-like feel at times – not too atmospheric, but with clouds of sweet sounds that blow through the space in a wonderful way.

A truly incredible collection – even more wonderful than we might have guessed from the title and cover – and both of those are already pretty darn appealing! This package might well be the most comprehensive we've ever seen on the early days of punk in England – a package that goes way past the big names, way past the classic cuts, and really digs deep into the huge explosion of indie labels that fueled the scene – creating a legacy of rare singles and amazing sounds that the British scene hadn't seen in years! If you dig the Sex Pistols or Clash, there's dozens of other tunes here to love – some by artists you'll know from later fame, represented here on very early tracks – and lots more from acts who maybe only gave the world a handful of brilliant singles. The presentation is as stunning as the music – 111 tracks on 4CDs, inside a heavy 64 page book-style jacket – with page after page of notes on each song and band, and lots of images as well. Consider this whole thing an overdue primer on all the punk you missed – even if you lived back in the day – and lose yourself in the huge array of tracks by groups who include The Radiators From Space, Puncture, Some Chicken, The Panik, The Only Ones, Suspects, Tueway Army, The Boys, Acme Sewage Co, Raped, Bazoomis, Menace GLC, Sids, Rudi, Art Attack, Angelic Upstarts, Mean Street, Poison Girls, Chelsea, Demon Preacher, Leyton Brothers, The Dole, Riff Raff, The Tights, Social Security, Nicky & The Dots, No Way, The Wall, Hollywood Brats, Disco Zombies, Spizzoil, Horrorcomic, The Cravats, and lots lots more!

It's pretty hard to peg the style of Kenneth Higney – because although the songs here are a bit rootsy, they've also got a sort of sneering level of presentation – one that almost prefigures punk – even though the music is hardly that at all! Guitar is sometimes electric, sometimes acoustic – and rhythms are rough and jagged, usually moving midtempo so as not to get in the way of Higney's lyrics.

A stunning package of work from the early days of Sun Ra & The Arkestra – three really wonderful tracks that are well-deserving of issue on a 45! "Angels & Demons At Play" is perhaps one of the greatest illustrations of the way that Ra took all of the exotic currents in postwar music and pushed them into his own cosmic directions – using a wonderful modal rhythm, mixed with some of the percussion effects you might have heard from Martin Denny or Les Baxter – then topping things with a wonderful flute solo that really sends things home! "Between Two Worlds" builds things up in a similar modal rhythm, but more choppy – with stark energy on the percussion that's echoed by the beautiful reed work of the tune! "Spontaneous Simplicity" is a bit looser and more spiritual – a real precursor to some of the directions that other jazz artists would pick up in years to come! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Brunswick/Solid (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
An excellent second album by Barbara Acklin – and a perfect demonstration of her really unique Chicago soul talents! Acklin's really at the cusp of two generations here – at one level still with some of the sweetness of the earlier style of 60s girl soul, but at another full of the power and pride that was really flowing into other artists of the 70s – a balance that's a great summation of the unique way that Chicago artists could play both ends of the spectrum, and come up with something really unique in the process! The album includes the great cut "Am I The Same Girl", a loping soul groover that was all set to be a big single for Barbara – but for some reason, Brunswick held the tape back, stripped off the vocals, put on some piano, and released it as the instrumental "Soulful Strut" by Young-Holt Unlimited at the same time! Yet we still dig Barbara's version better, though – nestled here alongside other great cuts that include "Seven Days of Night", "A Raggedy Ride", "Go With Love", "Mr Sunshine", "Until You Return", and "Where Would I Go".

A beautiful document of a magical musical moment – one of the few live performances ever of the work of David Axelrod – a concert that's presented here in a special CD & DVD package! Axelrod's 60s albums are the stuff of legend – orchestral efforts with a funky undercurrent, and longtime favorites of beatheads around the globe. And while his best-known efforts have always been the product of careful studio work, he demonstrates here that the Axelrod sound is equally at home in a live setting – played brilliantly by a host of younger British players, with a sense of crispness and sophisticated funk that easily matches his recent album on Mo Wax! The DVD features wonderful footage of the entire show – and the CD captures the music with a clarity that's as great as anything that Axlerod ever did in the studio. Titles include "Holy Are You", "Urizen", "Holy Thursday", "The Edge", "Song Of Innocence", "Smile", "The Human Abstract", and great covers of "Norwegian Wood" and "Paint It Black". DVD

One of the coolest collaborations of Dave Brubeck's years at Columbia Records – and one of the greatest jazz sessions from vocalist Jimmy Rushing too! On paper, the modernist Brubeck and Kansas City roots singer Rushing would seem to be a very unlikely pair – but by this time in his career, Jimmy had gotten extremely inventive and was very open to new ideas – and manages to lend his amazing vocals to some sublime instrumental backdrops from the Brubeck quartet! Dave unlocks a whole host of bluesy tones for the session, and really matches Rushing's energy – and Paul Desmond's alto sounds somewhat unusual in that setting, but with a real appeal too – a very unusual sound for a record like this. Titles include "There'll Be Some Changes Made", "My Melancholy Baby", "Blues In The Dark", "I Never Knew", "Ain't Misbehavin", "Evenin", "All By Myself", "River Stay Way From My Door", "You Can Depend On Me", and "Am I Blue".

The production and arrangements by Hall personify the sound and style of the southern soul era – and Clarence's capability to truly emote, as well as demonstrate a sly wit and unique personality – ultimately transcending all trends at the time! Absolutely essential material and it sounds as great as ever – with mastering direct from the Fame masters tapes too. Includes "Tell Daddy", "I Stayed Away Too Long", "Thread The Needle", "Too Weak To Fight", "Let Me Comfort You", "Back Door Santa", "Doin' Our Thing", "Take It Off Him And Put It On Me", "The Few Troubles I've Had", "I Can't Leave Your Love Alone", "Funky Fever", "Snatching It Back", "Devil Woman" and more.

Billy CobhamCrosswinds ... CD
Warner/Wounded Bird, 1974. New Copy ... $11.99 12.99
A masterful album from Billy Cobham – and maybe the best 70s record to really demonstrate the unique place he found for himself in 70s fusion! The album soars with a sound that really lives up to its cover image – but it's also not the heavy-jamming affair of some of Billy's more rockish records from the time. Instead, it's got this wonderful blend of deeper elements that really come together wonderfully – and some very strong use of reeds from Michael Brecker, trumpet from Randy Brecker, and trombone from the great Garnett Brown – all players who give the album a very rich, soulful voice. The set includes the famous sample track "Heather", a very dope, very mellow cut with great electric keyboard work by George Duke – and other titles include "Crosswind", "The Pleasant Pheasant", and "Spanish Moss – A Sound Portrait".

✨✧ John Coltrane & Hank MobleyTenor Conclave (SACD) ... CD
Prestige/Analogue Productions, 1956. Used Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
Tenors can't get any more conclaved than this – as the record brings together 4 players on the instrument in a great match from 2 of the best sides of 50s jazz! John Coltrane and Hank Mobley represent the more open, soulful side of the spectrum – and Al Cohn and Zoot Sims the tighter, more smartly arranged aspect. Together, the quartet of horns work in an open-ended blowing mode with rhythm by Red Garland, Paul Chambers, and Art Taylor – in a way that almost makes the set a "Coltrane plus" album for Prestige – one that has the structure of some of the best Trane/Garland sides for the label, but which blows in some other horns with different voicings. If you ever needed a record to demonstrate the subtler shadings of genius within 50s modern jazz, yet still convince you that it could also be relaxed and spontaneous, this record may well be the one. Titles include 2 standards – "Just You, Just Me" and "How Deep Is The Ocean" – plus 2 Mobley originals – "Tenor Conclave" and "Bob's Boys". CD

Elvis CostelloAlmost Blue ... LP
Columbia, 1981. Near Mint- ... $13.99
Elvis Costello's early 80s foray into 60s Nashville and otherwise country-indebted songbooks – and it's a nice one! Even on his tighter, blistering punk era records, Elvis demonstrated not only the voice, but a great ear for the roots and soul that came before him. He showed some soul love quite profoundly a year-or-so earlier on the Get Happy album, and here he works in a similarly respectful mode for classic country, countrypolitan and even a little bit of honky tonk. Produced by Billy Sherrill – who was absolutely essential in the country crossover sound of the 60s and 70s. It's a bit overlooked, but we love this record! Includes "Why Don't You Love Me (Lie You Used To Do)", "I'm Your Toy", "Tonight The Bottle Let Me Down", "Sittin' And Thinkin'", "Honey Hush", "How Much I Lied" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Detroit EmeraldsI Think Of You – The Westbound Singles 1969 to 1975 ... CD
Westbound (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $9.99 18.98
One of the great groups of the Detroit soul scene at the end of the 60s – but an act who never got the full fame of contemporaries like The Four Tops or Temptations! That didn't stop the Detroit Emeralds from being a hell of a vocal act, though – as they've got a mixture of tight harmonies and raw soul that's completely wonderful – and which finally gets full exposure here in a well-done selection of all their singles for the Westbound label! The imprint might be best known as the home for trippy soul by Funkadelic and Ohio Players – yet during the same classic stretch, Westbound also handled this hip Detroit trio to perfection – taking their 60s-schooled harmonies, and giving them a more sophisticated spin for the 70s – really letting the vocals take off as the group demonstrates their Dells-like power, and moving the arrangements of the tunes past overdone Motown styles of the decade before. The result is some of the hippest harmony soul you'll ever hope to hear – all presented here with the wonderfully deep Ace/Kent Records presentation – with 23 tracks that include "If I Lose Your Love", "Things Are Looking Up", "Lee", "Wear This Ring With Love", "Feel The Need In Me", "Whatcha Gonna Wear Tomorrow", "I Think Of You", "Rosetta Stone", "Set It Out", "Til You Decide To Come Home", "I'll Never Sail The Sea Again", "There's Love For Me Somewhere", "You're Gettin A Little Too Smart", and their classic "Baby Let Me Take You In My Arms".

Trumpeter Dave Douglas heads up a group here that he's been with for over a decade – a really well-matched, sharp-edged lineup that also features Jon Irabagon on saxes, Matt Mitchell on piano, Linda May Han Oh on bass, and Rudy Royston on drums – players who seem to slide effortlessly into the kind of territory that Douglas sets up for the record! In a way, the set's maybe a return to the bolder, modern territory of some of Dave's important early records – less of the different styles and shades of some of his more concept-oriented projects (even though this set has a spiritual concept guiding the music) – and instead a really strong demonstration of the uniqueness of Douglas' personal vision in jazz. Titles on this first volume include "Peace Within Your Walls", "Mouths Full Of Joy", "Scepter", "Lift Up My Eyes", "Enthroned", and "Deceitful Tongues". CD

An early demonstration of Eliane Elias' love of Brazilian music – a wonderful set that's filled with famous tunes penned by Antonio Carlos Jobim – mostly played by Eliane on piano, but also sung in a few spots as well! The group features solid jazz grounding from Eddie Gomez on bass and Jack DeJohnette on drums – both players who hint at freedom around the edges, while still flowing through these bossa-rooted tunes. Nana Vasconcelos also joins the group on percussion – in ways that are a bit more restrained than some of his other jazz recordings, but which still helps create an organic depth to the music. Titles include "Children's Games", "Angela", "Passarim", "Sabia", "Waters Of March", "Zingaro", and "Don't Ever Go Away". CD

Wonderful lost work from Toby Fichelscher – a German bongo player with a hell of a great ear for an unusual groove – strongly demonstrated here in a set of previously-unreleased recordings! Toby draws plenty from American percussionists of the 50s – and works here in a modern jazz setting that uses his percussion to bring sharp sounds to a lineup that includes vibes, alto sax, guitar, and tenor – often used in these cool, chromatic ways that work wonderfully alongside the rhythms! Fichelscher also sings and scats a bit at a few points – mixing vocals with his percussion in a way that reminds us of Fats Sadi, a European contemporary who had a similarly great ear for mixing modes. Most tracks here are instrumental, but even those have as much charm as the vocal numbers – and titles include "The Cool Scene", "My First Blues", "Fashion Trip", "Shadows", "With Cash Like This", and "On Chano's Track".

The set was recorded live at the Crescendo – in a jazzily swinging mode that's a bit looser than some of Ella's other Verve sessions, but which still demonstrates some nice control on the vocals. Titles include "Mr Paganini", "Stairway To The Stars", "Air Mail Special", "Blue Moon", "This Could Be The Start Of Something Big", and "Just In Time". CD

Franklin heads a wicked lineup here – playing both Fender and acoustic bass amidst other players who include Bill Henderson on electric piano, Charles Owens on tenor and soprano sax, Oscar Brashear on trumpet, Kenny Climax on guitar, and Michael Carvin on drums – all coming together with a mix of spiritual vibes and soulful undercurrents, in ways that almost give the record a Strata East sort of vibe! The whole thing is certainly one of the most memorable sessions on the Black Jazz label – and titles include "Outbreak", "Little Miss Laurie", "Theme For Jojo", and "Plastic Creek Stomp".

✨✧ Dizzy GillespieBirk's Works – Verve Big Band Sessions ... CD
Verve, 1956/1957. Used 2 CDs ... Just Sold Out!
Seminal work from Dizzy – showing that he was a genius in any form of jazz! In the mid 50s, Diz had one of the hippest big bands going – filled with great young players that included Lee Morgan, Joe Gordon, Melba Liston, Benny Golson, Billy Mitchell, and Walter Davis Jr. The work he crafted here was partly an extension of his earlier bop sides, but also a demonstration of his desire to express himself in more expansive forms – kind of a hint of the direction he'd take in the 60s, with his work in Latin, soundtrack, and funk styles. The set combines tracks from 3 different Verve albums – and it also packages the material with a number of previously unissued tracks, and some great liner notes that do a wonderful job of summing up the spirit of the work. Arrangements are by AK Salim, Quincy Jones, Tadd Dameron, and Dizzy himself – and tracks include "Jordu", "Tin Tin Deo", "Groovin For Nat", "Dizzy's Business", "Jessica's Day", "Doodlin", "Yo No Quiero Bailar", "Birk's Works", "Tangorine", "Umbrella Man", and "Mayflower Rock". 42 tracks in all!

The album's also noteworthy for demonstrating Dizzy's great talent for picking strong young talent – as the group features the writing and playing of Gigi Gryce and Benny Golson, plus work by Ray Bryant, Henry Coker, Tommy Bryant, and Charlie Persip. Tracks are short, but backed with that edgey energy that Gryce and Golson brought to their best work – and titles include "Blues After Dark", "Night At Tony's", "Smoke Signals", and "Shabozz".

One of the most famous Jerry Goldsmith soundtracks ever – even if the film itself wasn't much of a hit! Goldsmith really rose to the top ranks of film composers with his work for Blue Max – able to orchestrate both full action and quiet moments with effortless ease – often through these compressed passages that really move beyond the usual Hollywood scoring standard of the time! Things are never too flowery, yet still remain quite full at times – and Goldsmith really demonstrates his great skill with creating special odd sounds out of more familiar instruments.

As with the previous set on the label, this one grew out of experiments and performances at the important Jazz Refreshment Centre in London – where Neue Grafic was able to mix together elements of hip hop, Nigerian music, and contemporary London styles with more straightforward jazz instrumentation – all at a very genre-stepping level that's impossible to describe in words, but which really lives up to some of the best London experiments in recent years.

The resulting sound is very personal, and a great demonstration of a side of Mats that we've loved in live performance, but doesn't always make it onto record at this level – his incredible ability to pull all these textures and tones out of his horn – with a sense of timing that makes the whole performance a continued surprise – that quality that Gustafsson can have of both delighting himself when blowing, and catching himself off guard.

One of the most striking Don Pullen albums of the 80s – a beautifully open session that has the pianist co-leading a version of the 360 Experience group of drummer Beaver Harris – with an excellent lineup that also features Ricky Ford on tenor sax, Hamiet Bluiett on baritone, and Buster Williams on bass! The mix of players is unusual, and the sound here is as well – a record that easily steps between freer moments and more tuneful passages – imbued with the creative spirit of the loft jazz generation, but also taken a step further too – possibly via the album's production work by Hal Willner. There's some truly majestic moments on the album – and the whole thing is a great demonstration of the way that the farther fringes of the jazz universe were finding even more focused expression in the 80s – during a time when records like this really helped give musicians a great outlet for their new ideas. The set begins with the very long "Goree", which has additional work by Candido on percussion – and other tracks include "Land Of The Pharoahs", "Double Arc Jake", and "Newcomer". CD

The great live compilation of classic Hendrix – pulled from incendiary performances at Isle Of Wight in 1970 and other benchmark west coast gigs from '68 to '70! It's as fine of a snapshot of Jimi as you could really hope for, as it features numbers that showcase his fiery blues psych side that pretty much single-handedly change rock guitar forever after, as well as more loosely furnished bluesy jams that demonstrate his love for the blues legends before him. So, it's Jimi paving the way and showing love for his predecessors – and historical importance aside, it's simply great stuff! Some gigs have Noel Redding on bass and others have Billy Cox. Includes "The Queen", "Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band", "Little Wing", "Fire", "Red House", "Johnny B Goode", "Lover Man", "Blue Suede Shoes" and "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)".

One of the great ones from the young Terumasa Hino – a beautiful quartet session that really demonstrates his strength as a soloist on the trumpet! As you might guess from the title, there's a nice sense of melancholy to the record – a blueness that's carried off wonderfully by Hino on his solos – stepping out over a lineup that includes Yuji Ohno on piano, Motohiko Hino on drums, and Kunimitsu Inaba on bass. Tracks are long, and his imagination is quite rich – and this mellower side of Hino isn't always showcased this well. The set includes his beautiful original composition "Alone Alone & Alone", plus the tunes "Soulful" and "Downswing" – and a great modal take on "Summertime", with a beautiful measured solo by Hino.

The tracks are long and flowing – full of feeling, and as lyrical at times as they are rhythmic – set up with perfect trio accompaniment that features Tsutomu Okada on bass and Takuji Kusimoto on drums – working with Fumio in this special sort of magic that's a bit hard to put in words, but which really demonstrates on record why this moment in Japanese jazz was such a special time!

A stunning early set as a leader from Elvin Jones – both a tremendous demonstration of the free energy he let loose after the passing of John Coltrane, and a set that's also still got some key Coltrane-esque elements! As with other Jones albums to follow, Elvin's got some key reedmen on hand – George Coleman on tenor, and Frank Foster on tenor, alto, and bass clarinet – both given plenty of room to run around with long solos on the open space of the record – yet without ever blowing off their heads as much as some of the younger players who'd work with Jones. There's no piano at all on the set – just the rock-slid bass of Wilbur Little, and additional congas from Candido next to Elvin's drums. The tracks have a haunting quality that mixes modal grooving with spare moments, and titles include "Simone", "5/4 Thing", "Shinjitu", and a nice version of "Yesterdays". CD

Some of the warmest work we've ever heard from Polish film composer Andrzej Korzynski – definitely different than his quirkier sounds from early in the decade, and done for a TV show that was set in the Polish countryside in the 30s! There's bits of electronic elements mixed in with fuller strings and woodwinds – and Korzynski demonstrates a great sense of feeling throughout – a bit like some of the French soundtrack composers of the time, and their ability to create really moving, evocative passages in sound – but without some of the more cloying Hollywood styles. A few pieces here appeared in other series as well – and the set features 20 tracks that include "Tajemnice", "Wioska", "Jaskinia", "Zabawy Dzieci", "Mustang", "Cmentarz", and "Duchy". CD

We never stop falling in love with the music of bassist Joelle Leandre – and although we've been listening to her records for many many years, we still always feel newly moved when we encounter music as great as this! The set features both a long live set of solo improvisations, recorded in a Church with a wonderfully echoey sound – and a few private after-set tracks too – both of which beautifully demonstrate that quality that always seems to set Leandre apart from the rest – a complete understanding of all the many properties of the acoustic bass, both bowed and plucked – delivered with a freewheeling sense of imagination, but also a quality that's very organic, almost sensual – so that her music has a tuneful quality at the core, even when quite free. The set features six selections from the concert, and two more after-set tracks too – both with a slightly different sonic quality, given the space. CD

A great album from one of Ivan Lins' best periods – a great shift in his music, with a sound that's made the album one of his all-time classics! The set has him adapting more of a jazzy sound than on earlier records – dropping some of the baroque arrangements for a sound that's leaner, meaner, and stripped down in a way that really gets the spirit of his great compositions across to the listener. The small backing combo features Gilson Peranzzetta, who plays some excellent electric piano, which gives the album a moody groove that places it somewhere between the early 70s work of Joao Donato and Milton Nascimento. Titles include "Lenda Do Carmo", "Sorriso Da Magoa", "Palhacos E Reis", "Corpos", "Demonio De Guarda", and "Nao Ha Porque". CD

Joe had already been blowing greatness on tenor for years before this set, but these Village Vanguard recordings put Lovano in the same heady space as Joe Henderson or Sonny Rollins at the Vanguard on Blue Note – by really allowing a great sense of open, spontaneous expression that stands as a nice counterpoint to his well-conceived studio work – a very earnest demonstration of Lovano's rich talents as a saxophonist. Joe plays soprano and C melody sax as well – and the group features always-great work on trumpet and flugelhorn from Tom Harrell, plus Anthony Cox on bass and Billy Hart on drums. Tracks include "Song & Dance", "Sail Away", "Blues Not To Lose", "Birds Of Springtimes Go By", and "Uprising". CD

Grammofonverket/Dragon (Sweden), 1974. New Copy ... $12.99 14.99
Bassist Red Mitchell got his start on the west coast scene in America – but once he moved to Sweden, his creative powers really opened up – to the point where he was not only a hell of a musician on his initial instrument, but also a colorful pianist and a hell of a leader too! This album's a wonderful demonstration of the genius that Red hit with the Swedes – as it features material that soars with color and life throughout – work that's expressive, but never in a cliched way – and which maybe brings forward an older style of arranging with freshly new spirit for the 70s – but all without every trying to sound too contemporary in ways that would sink its timelesness. If that sounds a bit odd, it's because the music is too – but in a really special way – crafted from tunes by writers who include Cedar Walton, Wolfgang Dauner, Chick Corea, and members of the group – which includes Mitchell on bass and piano, plus Bosse Broberg on trumpet, Nils Sandstrom on tenor, Goran Strandberg on piano, Bertil Strandberg on trombone, and Petur Ostlund on drums. Mitchell even sings a bit in two spots – and the double-length setting makes for some nice long performances – of titles that include "My Woman", "Too Late Now", "Pamukkale", "Cirrus", "Til Jan Johansson", "Windows", "The Rise & Fall Of The Empire", and "The Loner".

Trumpeter Farnell Newton has been making music for a number of years – but he really seems to be taking off and finding his groove on recent albums for the Posi-Tone labels – records, like this one, that really have Newton demonstrating his strong ear for phrasing, and his ability to come up with just the right sort of a tune for both his solos and his sidemen! Here, the group features core work from a great quartet – Art Hirihara on piano, Boris Kozlov on bass, and Rudy Royston on drums and percussion – a lineup that features shifting contributions from Jaleel Shaw, Patrick Cornelius, and Braxton Cook on alto saxes – plus Brandon Wright on tenor and Michael Dease on trombone! Just about every tune has an additional horn joining Newton in the lead, and the sense of interplay is what really makes the record special – tight, but very personal solo work from all involved – on titles that include "Affectionately Roy", "Feel The Love", "A Child Not Born", "The Bluest Eyes", "Pale", and "Laws Of Motion".

The package features detailed notes and amazing sounds recorded at the Mills Tape Music Center, University Of Toronto Electronic Music Studio, University Of California San Diego, San Francisco Tape Music Center, and her own home studio as well.

Buck OwensComplete Capitol Singles – 1957 to 1966 ... CD
Capitol/Omnivore, Late 50s/Early 60s. Used 2CD ... $19.99
Buck Owens ruled country music in the 60s – especially on the west coast – and these seminal singles for Capitol Records are a great demonstration of his talent at its height! Buck was a hell of a talent right from the start – sharp, soulful, and graced with a good sense of wit and strong intelligence – all of which ably guided both his performance and choice of material – which is especially perfect when it comes to his 45s! And while most of Owens' albums from this time have been reissued on CD, this is the first set to really look at the special world of his singles – which includes a lot of numbers that never made the full-length sets. The package features a whopping 56 tracks on 2CDs, complete with a and b-sides of all the singles – including a few duets with Rose Maddox. Titles include "I Know What It Means", "Over & Over Again", "Sweethearts In Heaven", "Cryin Time", "Waitin In Your Welfare Line", "Heart Of Glass", "No More Me & You", "The Way That I Love You", "House Down The Block", "King OF Fools", "I Can't Stop My Lovin You", "Second Fiddle", "Walk The Floor", "We're The Talk Of The Town", "My Heart Skips A Beat", "Together Again", "Don't Let Her Know", "No One But You", "Til These Dreams Come True", "High As The Mountains", and "Loose Talk".

✨✧ Jeff Parker/Eric Revis/Nasheet WaitsEastside Romp ... CD
Rogue Art (France), 2022. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Wonderful trio material from guitarist Jeff Parker – a lean, clear demonstration of his fantastic command of the instrument – in ways that are very different than the larger sonic palette of some of his other recent albums! In truth, the session is a three-pointed star, not just Parker's own – as it features some perfect work on drums from Nasheet Waits, whose sense of space and open touch on the kit really fits the mode here – as does the bass of Eric Revis, who's maybe the most subtle force on the record, but a tremendously powerful one too. Parker's guitar is illuminated with amazing color and tone throughout – and titles include "Between Nothingness & Infinity", "Similar Limits", "Drunkard's Lullaby", "That Eastside Romp", "Room For VG", and "Watusi".
