Demon FuzzAfreaka! (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Dawn/Esoteric (UK), 1970. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Messed-up funky jazz from an obscure early 70s UK group – and an album that really lives up to its trippy cover! The tracks are all long and stretched out – with lots of organ, sax, and spaced out drums – and the overall style is a mix of dub-heavy funk, Afro jazz, and a bit of jazz rock jamming! There's a bit of vocals on the album, but overall most of the set is instrumental – in a really right on and progressive style that we totally love. This is the kind of record that always got passed by in the 80s when everyone was looking for hard James Brown grooves, but which is very much in fashion now with the blunted funky crowd. Cuts include "Hymn To Mother Earth", "Another Country", "Disillusioned Man", and "Mercy (Variation No. 1)" – plus bonus tracks "Fuzz Oriental Blues", "I Put A Spell On You", and "Message To Mankind".

David MatthewsSpeed Demon ... LP
GNP, 1985. Sealed ... $4.99
A lesser-known bit of funky fusion from David Matthews – a set that steps off his CTI/Kudu work of the 70s, with an update of that older jazz funk vibe! The group shows Matthews' continuing connection to the best players of this mode at the time – and features keyboards from Richard Tee and Cliff Carter, baritone from Ronnie Cuber, tenor from George Young, and trumpet from Lew Soloff – the last three of whom bring in some acoustic warmth next to the more electric vibe of the set. Titles are all originals by Matthews – and include "La Tigra", "Spanish Night", "Doctor Rocker & Mr Jive", and "Mad Millie". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ GorillazDemon Days ... LP
Parlophone, 2005. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The second Gorillaz album, and if there was ever an inclination the first would be a one-and-done side project or its huge success would be a tough act to follow, this one pretty much slays both theories – it's ultimately one of the better leftfield pop albums of the 00s! The guest roster on Gorillaz albums is always pretty stunning, and this one especially so – with Damon Albarn bringing in a then white hot Danger Mouse as a producer, and welcoming Roots Manuva, De La Soul, MF Doom, Shaun Ryder, Martina Topley-Bird, Bootie Brown, Ike Turner, The London Gospel Choir, Dennis Hopper and more. Includes "Dirty Harry", "Feel Good Inc", "All Alone", "Demon Days", "Fire Coming Out Of The Monkey's Head", "Don't Get Lost In Heaven", "White Light", "El Manana" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jackie McLeanDemon's Dance ... CD
Blue Note, 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pivotal session from the late 60s – one that has Jackie pulling things back a bit from his "new thing" period, and turning towards the spiritual soulful groove that would characterize his early 70s work! The album bristles with excitement – still very much informed by a knowledge of the space explored during Jackie's avant years, but never quite willing to go to that space – especially if it means sacrificing the soulful swing of the set! The group's filled with young soulful modernists – including Woody Shaw, Lamont Johnson, Scott Holt, and Jack DeJohnette – and Jackie himself seems to be working out a whole new phase of his career with each new track – showing that even when he was at his "new thing" best, he was still ready to move on! Tremendous stuff, and one of our favorite Blue Notes from the time – and one of the most soulful too! Titles include "Floogeh", "Message From Trane", "Toyland", and "Boo Ann's Grind". CD

✨✧ Jackie McLean5 Original Albums (Capuchin Swing/Bluesnik/Let Freedom Ring/Demon's Dance/Jacknife) (5CD set) ... CD
Blue Note, 1960s. Used 5 CDs ... Out Of Stock
5 killer albums from the great Jackie McLean – all packaged together in cool LP-styled jackets! First up is Capuchin Swing – a tremendous set from Jackie McLean – perfectly poised between his hardbop and modern years, with a set of compositions that are as great as the performances! The lineup on this one's a bit unusual – with Walter Bishop on piano, Blue Mitchell on trumpet, Paul Chambers on bass, and Art Taylor on drums – but that mix of players makes for a really unusual sound – as the rhythm section's often straight ahead, Blue Mitchell's notes are bold and sparkling, and Jackie's own solos are reaching for the darker corners of the spectrum! There's a great sense of tension here that heralds the genius of later McLean sides of the 60s – and original titles include "Francisco", "Condition Blue", "On The Lion", and "Capuchin Swing". Bluesnik is a crackling date from Jackie McLean – a set that's much more hardbop than some of his other Blue Note work – filled with fire, far from the 50s – and really pointing the way towards his new directions to come! There's a hint of modernism in the mix, mostly on the tone from McLean's alto sax – but most numbers are forward-thinking, and played with a sense of perfection that's pure Blue Note all the way through. Group members include Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Kenny Drew on piano, Doug Watkins on bass, and Pete LaRoca on drums – and titles include "Cool Green", "Torchin", "Bluesnik", "Drew's Blues", and "Blues Function". Let Freedom Ring features a young Jackie McLean at the height of his powers – really stretching out here, but never going too far out – a perfect balance between his modern bop of previous records, and his groundbreaking "new thing" jazz to come! The group is a relatively straight ahead one – with Walter Davis on piano, Herbie Lewis on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums – but the tracks are all quite long, and have this really arch sensibility on Jackie's horn – this edge, this cry he didn't have a few years before – easily one of the freshest voices in alto sax at the time, yearning here to break free with new ideas and new modes of expression. The vibe is perfectly balanced – like McLean's classic A Fickle Sonance – and titles include the classic "Melody For Melonae", plus "Rene", "I'll Keep Loving You", and "Omega". Demon's Dance is a pivotal session from the late 60s – one that has Jackie pulling things back a bit from his "new thing" period, and turning towards the spiritual soulful groove that would characterize his early 70s work! The album bristles with excitement – still very much informed by a knowledge of the space explored during Jackie's avant years, but never quite willing to go to that space – especially if it means sacrificing the soulful swing of the set!

Tremendous stuff, and one of our favorite Blue Notes from the time – and one of the most soulful too! Titles include "Floogeh", "Message From Trane", "Toyland", and "Boo Ann's Grind". Jacknife is a heck of an album from Jackie McLean – extremely soulful work from the mid 60s, recorded right at the height of his "new thing" period! That quality may be one reason why the session was never issued at the time (it only made a brief appearance on vinyl in the late 70s, and is finally coming out on CD) – but to our ears, it's one of Jackie's strongest from the decade, a really wonderful record that looks forward at the soulful explorations of the 70s Strata East scene. Players include Lee Morgan, Charles Tolliver, Larry Willis, Larry Ridley, and Jack DeJohnette – and titles include "Soft Blue", "Climax", "On The Nile", and "Blue Fable". CD

Barrino BrothersLivin' High Off The Goodness Of Your Love (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Invictus/Demon (UK), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
The only album ever by The Barrino Brothers – a stellar early 70s harmony group, and one who could sing with the best of the east coast scene of the time! The whole set's got a feel that's very much in the best mode of groups like The Modulations, Soul Generation, and even The O'Jays – as the group's got a deeper, more solid sound than some of the more fragile outfits of their era. Production is very strong – thanks to the Holland-Dozier-Holland powerhouse sound of the time – and the group's vocals are supported on a full groove that really helps send the whole thing over the top! The title cut "Livin High Off The Goodness Of Your Love" is a stone classic – and other nice tracks include "Rain", "I Had it All", and "It Doesn't Have to Be That Way". LP, Vinyl record album

Chairmen Of The BoardSkin I'm In (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Invictus/Demon (UK), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
Probably the rarest of all albums by The Chairmen Of The Board – and also the last! The album was cut after the band re-formed briefly, and it's got a fuzzed-out heavy soul sound that's quite different from some of the group's earlier work. There's heavy guitar on many tracks – riffing away in a psychedelic mode that dominates most tracks, but which almost buries the group's vocals. The album's a great one if you dig the funk side of the Chairmen – and at times, it almost reminds us of The Politicians, who were kind of labelmates of the group. Includes the excellent two-part funk track "Life & Death" – plus "Love At First Sight", "Everybody Party All Night", "Let's Have Some Fun", "Finder's Keepers", "Skin I'm In", and "White Rose (Freedom Flower)".

Gene ChandlerThere Was A Time (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Brunswick/Demon (UK), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
A soaring, burning set from Gene Chandler – completely different than his early hits, and a key point in the transformation of Chicago soul in the 60s! Gene's always had a heck of a great vocal range – and he really gets a chance to use it to best effect on this album of jaunty and groovy little tracks – tunes that bounce around with that majestic Chi-soul style of the late 60s, all produced to perfection by the great Carl Davis! The sound is sublime – a pulling together of so many different strands into one bold, proud sound – sophisticated yet soulful, and with a rhythmic component that really sets the album apart from the pack. And even when Gene's singing tunes that you may know from other singers' hits, he does a tremendous job of transforming them – recasting them into his more mature groove, and managing to funky them up in ways we wouldn't expect! Evidence to this is the album's great version of James Brown's "There Was A Time" – which is followed by loads of other great cuts, including "Cowboys To Girls", "Fooling Around", "Pit Of Loneliness", "Never Gonna Give You Up", and "Laughter To Tears".

Ruth CopelandSelf Portrait (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Invictus/Demon (UK), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
A surprisingly groovy little set – one of a few outings cut by singer Ruth Copeland – kind of an enigmatic figure in the early P-Funk years! The approach here is more rock than soul, but there's definitely some funky undercurrents too – of the sort that have always made Copeland a favorite with break freaks over the years – thanks to help on the album from Dennis Coffey, Eddie Hazel, Bernie Worrell, and George Clinton! Ruth arranged, performed, and produced the core part of the album herself – but the production style is surprisingly strong – with a use of space and strings that almost shows a bit of Axelrod influence at times, although more skewed towards the Detroit soul scene that Copeland called home. Titles include the classic "Your Love Been So Good To Me", which starts with a very fuzzy electric break, and "I Got a Thing For You Daddy", which has some great spacey guitars on the intro – plus "Child of the North", "No Commitment", "A Gift of Me", and "The Music Box".

Tyrone DavisTurn Back The Hands Of Time (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Dakar/Demon (UK), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
The second album from Chicago soul legend Tyrone Davis – and every bit as wonderful as his first! Like that set, this one bounces along on a wave of well cast Chisoul arrangements – penned by Tom Washington and Willie Henderson, with a great mix of the sweet and the rough – bubbling under with a heavier rhythm than you might expect for such a session. The whole set skips along with a sound that's totally tight, but also plenty darn righteous – and Tyrone's voice crackles with honesty and feeling on the album's entire set list. Tracks include the mega-hit "Turn Back The Hands Of Time", plus "Undying Love", "If It's Love That You're After", "I Keep Coming Back", and "Let Me Back In". LP, Vinyl record album

William DeVaughnBe Thankful For What You Got (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Roxbury/Demon (UK), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
One of the undisputed masterpieces LPs of 70s soul! William De Vaughn may never be remembered for anything else – and the poor guy will always be mistaken for Curtis Mayfield by record shoppers everywhere – but he really out-Curtised Curtis on the super-dope original version of "Be Thankful For What You Got", one of those righteous soul tunes that everybody knows, everybody loves, but which was recorded by an artist that nobody can remember. Get this one, and you'll remember William De Vaughn as a genius for the rest of your life – not only for the full 7-minute version of "Be Thankful", which has a great conga breakdown in the middle, but also for other original tunes like "Blood is Thicker than Water", "You Can Do It", and "Give the Little Man a Great Big Hand". Very righteous, and with a deep soul groove that was hardly matched by other albums of the era! LP, Vinyl record album

A massive album by Lamont Dozier – probably his best ever! Every cut's a winner, and the LP shines with a sharpness and tightness that's missing from some of Lamont's other LPs from the 70s. The songwriting is impeccable – and as the album progresses, you get that eerie "deja vu" feeling you can have when discovering a landmark work for the first time. There's a hint of funk in the mix, but the strongest point is the production – which bowls over the top with a mix of strings, piano, and Lamont's wonderfully honest vocals. Includes the wonderful soul anthem "Don't Leave Me", which comes up again in a very tight instrumental version – plus the tracks "The Picture Will Never Change", "Why Can't We Be Lovers", and "Slipping Away". Great all the way through, and a stunning bit of seventies soul that will have you returning again and again! LP, Vinyl record album

EliminatorsLoving Explosion (180 gram pressing) ... LP
BRC/Demon (UK), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99 24.99
A rare funky soul classic! This one was originally issued on Brunswick in 1974, and it's darn impossible to find in the original, probably because Brunswick was having a great deal of financial trouble at the time. Whatever the case, the record's a great one – and it's got a tight ensemble funky sound, mixed with some great soulful vocals, and a strong indie soul groove. The band originally came from North Carolina, and they've got a style that's similar to some of the other south coast funk groups that were operating in the 70s in cities like Washington, Richmond, and other points south. Most tracks have deep soulful vocals, but there are some very nice instrumentals too, and the band's got a pretty tight approach to playing. Titles include "Rump Bump", "Loose Hips", "Get Satisfied (Parts 1 & 2)", "Loving Explosion", "Give It Up", and "Blood Donors Needed". LP, Vinyl record album

An insane amount of material from British 80s soul heroes Five Star – a group who always seem to have an upbeat, catchy sort of vibe – one that holds strong in their music from the early 80s years up through all the changes in R&B at the start of the 90s! This package not only features every single album the group ever recorded, but also features lots of unusual bonus tracks, 12" single mixes, and other material too – 131 tracks in all, and that doesn't include the material on the DVD – all packaged in a very cool 12" square book-style cover, filled with pages of notes and images too. Albums include Luxury Of Life, Silk & Steel, Between The Lines, Rock The World, Five Star, and Shine – and there's three more CDs that just feature 7" and 12" single mixes too. Maybe most interesting are the bonus tracks added to the albums – as many aren't remixes of LP tracks, but instead include unusual material like "The Man", "Have A Good Time", "Forever Yours", "Stone Court", "Love Games", "Pure Energy", "First Avenue", "I'm Gonna Make This A Night You Will Never Forget", "I Like The Way You Dance", "Don't Stop", "The Mews", "Sweetest Innocence", and "Sound Sweet".

Lost funky work from one of the soulful sisters of Aretha Franklin! Erma's got a hard-hitting style that's right up there with Aretha's best for Atlantic – and on this album, she's working in Chicago with Johnny Pate, Sonny Sanders, and Willie Henderson – for a harder-hitting sound than her famous sis, really in the groove with the best of Brunswick from the late 60s! There's as much funk on the record as there is the deep soul you'd expect from the Franklin family, and Erma's vocals are incredible – equally at home with the original tracks on the record, as well as some late 60s hits that are nicely soulized by the boys in the band! Titles include "Hold On I'm Coming", "Baby I Love You", "Light My Fire", "You've Been Cancelled", "Can't See My Way", and "Gotta Find Me A Lover". LP, Vinyl record album

Laura LeeI Can't Make It Alone (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Invictus/Demon (UK), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
Sublime soul from the mighty Laura Lee – one of the best deep soul singers of the 70s, even though she recorded with the mostly-northern team of Holland Dozier Holland! The set shows that the trio really knew how to change it up after leaving Motown – and although Lee had recorded for Chess in the 60s, she really finds her groove here – mixing southern soul with a dose of 70s funk – all of which really stands out from most of her contemporaries! Laura's voice is sweet and dusky, in the mode of some of the best underground singers of her day – but also rises above the rest, thanks to crack arrangements by HB Barnum and Eugene Moore – who mix strings and soul into a stellar blend of styles! Titles include the breakbeat classic "Crums Off The Table", which begins with some great hard drums – plus the cuts "Every Little Bit Hurts", "I Can't Make It Alone", "Mirror Of Your Soul", and "I Need It Just As Bad As You".

Brunswick/Demon (UK), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
They're young and tough – and especially wonderful too – easily one of the most compelling harmony soul groups to ever hail from the Windy City! The set's a Chicago soul gem from the early 70s – recorded with a laidback, slightly tripped-out vibe that's different than the tighter styles of other groups from the same scene – definitely righteous at points, with some of the superbad modes you might hear from an east coast lineup like The Delfonics or Soul Generation, especially when they were trying to get a bit more conscious in their message. Arrangements are great – handled by Tom Tom Washington, Eugene Record, and Cliff Davis – very much at the best Brunswick mode, but again with a deeper sort of vibe too. The title cut's a monster, and a very fitting follow-up to their earlier "Sly, Slick, & Wicked" track – and the album features 2 versions (vocal and instrumental) of a cut called "This Is The Lost Generation", a very righteous soul groove with a heavy production tip. Other titles include "Sure Is Funky", "Thin Line Between Love & Hate", and "Tired Of Being Alone". LP, Vinyl record album

An insane bit of fuzzed-out funk! This is Parliament's rare first album – a trippy batch of tunes that come off of Clinton's experimentation in the Detroit soul scene, infused by the rock-heavy energy of the city at the time, and probably a heck of a lot of cannabis, too! The record is quite different than the slick funky sound of the group's later work for Casablanca – and has the psychedelic funk sound of the early work of Funkadelic, which was also recorded during the same period. The album's filled with funky classics – including "I Call My Baby Pussycat", "Little Ole Country Boy", "My Automobile", "Funky Woman", and "Nothing Before Me But Thang". LP, Vinyl record album

A landmark album from Freda Payne! Freda had been knocking around a bit as a more jazz-oriented singer, and had cut one album for Impulse and one for MGM before this one – but when she hooked up with the hitmaking Holland-Dozier-Holland team for this record, her career really went over the top! The team take Payne's deep soulful voice away from the sophisticated pop of earlier years, and hook it up with a mix of fuzzy Detroit soul and sweeter southern styles. The album includes loads of great cuts – most notably the sublime crossover hit "Band of Gold", but also plenty of other lesser-known gems, like "The Easiest Way to Fall", "Unhooked Generation", "Deeper and Deeper", and "This Girl Is a Woman Now".

Hot Wax/Demon (UK), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
Incredibly messed-up funk – a 70s instrumental classic that's delighted our ears for years! The set's got a cosmic sound that mixes together conventional guitar-based funky with some weird electronic touches at times – going for a fuzzed-out moogy quality that really deepens the groove – and which goes even further on those tunes that push the basslines all the way into the red! The group's headed by McKinley Jackson, and features some ex-members of Parliament – all coming together in a full, rich sound that almost has traces of soundtrack sophistication at times – yet which manages to come across with the burning energy of a funky 45! The album includes the classics "Funky Toes" and "Psycha-Soula-Funkadelic" – plus the group's legendary take on "Free Your Mind", a sample classic from years back! Great stuff if you dig a fuzzy Westbound sort of funk groove – and other tracks include "Church", "The World We Live In", "Everything Good Is Bad", "Speak On It", and "Politician's Theme".

Hot Wax/Demon (UK), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
A really compelling little set from Satisfaction Unlimited – a group we only know from this one corker of a record on the Hot Wax label! The style's a bit in some of the harmony modes of the east coast scene of the time – yet like most Hot Wax/Invictus work, there's also a bit of an odd twist too – a quality that's hard to peg in words, but which is sometimes slightly trippy, other times warmly soulful – almost a Cali indie sort of vibe – with a bit of sunshine that breaks through amidst some of the darker, heavier themes of the record. There's plenty of great numbers with a catchy vibe that could have almost gotten these guys the radio play of some of the RCA groups of the time – and titles include "Time For Us", "Think of The Children", "Bright City Lights", "Let's Change The Subject", "Come On Back", and "Why".

Jackie WilsonDo Your Thing (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Brunswick/Demon (UK), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
A very cool groove from Jackie Wilson – a record that still holds onto all the great vocal range of his roots, but also pushes into a hipper late 60s style that's pretty darn nice! 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

Jackie WilsonHigher & Higher (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Brunswick/Demon (UK), 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
A wonderful little album from Jackie Wilson – one that helped him redefine his sound and save his career! Jackie's earlier work for Brunswick was a mish-mash of styles that ranged from raw R&B to smooth supper-club jazz to silly novelty numbers, all of which had gotten pretty stale by the mid 60s. Elsewhere at Brunswick, though, things were really popping during the time – as Carl Davis was turning the label's Chicago offices into a hotbed of soul, forged in the newer hipper styles of the Chisoul scene. Davis got Wilson into the Chicago scene for this album – had him working with arranger Sonny Sanders and director Gerald Sims – to create a wonderful batch of strident soul tunes that perfectly embody the loping Chisoul groove that was Davis' real legacy in soul music during the 60s. The prime example of this is the title cut "(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher & Higher" – which became a runaway hit that put Wilson back on the map I the soul business. The rest of the album's just as great, though, and includes loads of solid numbers like "Soulville", "I've Lost You", "Those Heartaches", and "I'm The One To Do It". LP, Vinyl record album

Young-Holt TrioWack Wack (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Brunswick/Demon (UK), 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
Amazing stuff from bassist Eldee Young and drummer Isaac "Red" Holt! At the time of this release, the pair had already risen to great fame as the rhythm backing for Ramsey Lewis in his first trio – but broke out on their own as a solo act, with a real focus on rhythmic piano grooves! Working here with pianist Hysear Don Walker, the pair attempt to recreate a bit of the rolling soul jazz groove they hit with Ramsey – but they also take a hipper approach, by moving the drums and bass forward in the mix, especially Young's bass, which was capable of amazing funky riffs and elegant whimsical lines. The title cut, "Wack Wack", is one of those 60s instrumental hits we'd put on a par with "Bang Bang" or "Soul Finger" – and the album also includes wonderful versions of jazz and pop hits like "Monday, Monday", "Song for My Father", "Sunny", and "Girl Talk", all of which are completely transformed by the group!

Demon (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP ... $39.99 48.99
The vaults of horror here are open pretty darn wide – so much so that they run a span from the initial years of Italian giallo films, all the way through some of the more electric slasher and shock films of the 80s! As with the first film, the package goes way past the obvious – and instead does a great job of pulling together tracks that really show the full scope of Italian horror – from atonal orchestrations through more small group electronics – with plenty of bits of rock-influenced modes along the way! The set features 20 tracks in all, wrapped up in a wonderfully vivid cover – and titles include "You Are Not The Same" by Fabio Frizzi, "Il Paese Del Sesso Selvaggio" by Sergio Patucchi, "Ecologia Del Delitto" by Stelvio Cipriani, "Make Love On The Wing" by Nico Fidenco, "Savana" by Guido & Maurizio De Angelis, "Conquest" by Claudio Simonetti, "Valley" by Bill Wyman, "Sudden Death" by Carlo Maria Cordio, "Satanik Seq 7" by Roberto Pregadio, "La Lucertola" by Ennio Morricone, "John Dalton Street" by Guliano Sorgini, "Opera Theme" by Bill Wyman & Terry Taylor, "Lady Frankenstein Seq 1" by Alessandro Alessandroni, and "Arizona Mountain" by Francesco De Masi.

VariousWorld We Live In – Holland/Dozier/Holland Compilation (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Invictus/Demon (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $19.99
Massive soul from the start of the 70s – some of the heaviest cuts ever put together by the Holland Dozier Holland team – all issued on their own family of labels after the trio split with Motown! The work here is way deeper than their Motown sides – maybe more in the territory of Norman Whitfield, Westbound Records, and some of the other great work coming out in that second wave of soul from Detroit – more progressive and more righteous overall, often with more emphasis on the bottom groove too! As you'd guess from the cover, the tunes all appeared on the HDH labels Invictus, Hot Wax, and Music Merchant – and titles include "Cheeba" by The 8th Day, "New Breed Kinda Woman" by Lamont Dozier, "Love Factory" by Eloise Laws, "Sliced Tomatoes" by The Just Brothers, "Crumbs Off The Table" by Laura Lee, "Working On A Building Of Love" by Chairmen Of The Board, "Unhooked Generation" by Freda Payne, "Sunday Morning People" by Harrison Kennedy, "Don't Leave Me (inst)" by Lamont Dozier, "Breakdown" by Parliament, "I Shall Not Be Moved" by Barrino Brothers, "Sittin On A Time Bomb" by Lee Charles, "The World We Live In" by The Politicians, "I'm Bugging Your Phone (part 1)" by Smith Connection, "I Got It (part 1)" by New York Port Authority, and "Want Ads" by Honey Cone.

A great little set that offers up way more than just gold records from Chairmen Of The Board – as the 3CD set is overflowing with a great variety of music that shows why COTB were one of the most unique soul groups of their time! In addition to classics, there's some great overlooked album cuts, work from a time when the group featured Prince Harold in the lead, and excellent solo cuts by members Danny Woods, General Johnson, and Harrison Kennedy – who each got a chance to record a record on their own for the Invictus label! Throughout it all, that Holland Dozier Holland soul machine sound is firmly in force – on a set of 60 titles that include "Tricked & Trapped", "Let Me Down Easy", "Bittersweet", "Love At First Sight", "I Can't Find Myself", "What's The Use", "You've Got Me Dangling On A String", "Hanging On To A Memory", "Since The Days Of Pigtails & Fairytales", "Everybody Party All Night", "You've Got Extra Added Power In Your Love", "Live With Me Love With Me", "Didn't We", "Children Of Today", and "Try My Love On For Size" - plus solo tracks "Hypnotic Music" and "Sunday Morning People" by Harrison Kennedy, "Everybody's Talkin" and "Let Me Ride" by Danny Woods, and "I'm In Love Darling" and "Every Couple's Not A Pair" by General Johnson.

Invictus/Demon (UK), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A second sublime set from Ruth Copeland – a funky female singer from the Detroit scene of the early 70s, with key ties to the P-Funk universe, and a unique groove that mixes singer/songwriter modes with the fuzzier funkier elements of artists like Betty Davis or Yvonne Fair! There's a bit more emphasis on soul here than the funk of Copeland's previous efforts – but in a way that makes for an even more impressive record overall, especially when you realize that Ruth arranged and produced the whole thing. George Clinton and Eddie Hazel both had a hand in co-writing songs with Copeland – and instrumentation features Hazel on guitar, plus Bernie Worrell on piano – so there's still a key P-Funk link. Titles include the breakbeat track "Suburban Family Lament", the fuzzy stoner funk number "Don't You Wish You Had", and covers of the Rolling Stones' "Gimme Shelter" and "Play With Fire" – plus "Crying Has Made Me Stronger", "Hare Krishna", and "The Medal".

The one and only album by Exit 9 – an obscure funk combo who recorded this rare set for Brunswick in 1975! The group is extremely tight instrumentally – working at a very fast funky clip that's kind of similar to work by Bohannon or Sound Experience – both of whom shared Exit 9's pre-disco approach to dancefloor grooves – more fast-funk than the tighter club sound of later years, and proof that a funky combo could hit the dancefloor if it had the right groove! Most numbers have vocals, and instrumentation includes lots of nice guitar work that keeps a rawer edge on the tracks – choppy and gritty in a really great way. Tracks include "MFB", "Miss Funky Fox", "Fly", "Julie I Love You", "Jive Man", and "Rhapsody in Funk". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bobby DarinDirection Albums (Born Robert Walden Cassotto/Commitment/Rare Darin) (3LP 180 gram pressing) ... LP
Direction/Demon (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 3LP ... Out Of Stock
A three album set – one that brings together both rare Bobby Darin albums for the Direction label, plus a bonus LP of unusual material too! First up is Born Robert Walden Cassotto – an incredible late album from Bobby Darin – and a real treasure! The record was cut after Darin's mid 60s fascination with the work of Tim Hardin, most of which he re-recorded for Atlantic during that time – but it's got a similar style to the Hardin years, yet features some stunning original compositions by Darin. After the confidence of his early show days, it's amazing to hear Bobby D singing songs like this – filled with sadness, insecurity, and kind of a mind-numbing inability to cope with the times. Of course, part of this has to do with Darin's increasingly poor health conditions (he was predicted to live a very short life at an early age) – and the raw honest experimental quality of the album's a real testament to Darin's perpetual struggle to combine a strong professional bent to be a crossover entertainer with an increasing (and surprising) desire to emerge as a creative force on his own. Includes the sublime "I Can See The Wind", plus "Change", "Sunday", "Questions", and "The Proper Gander". Commitment is really fantastic later work from Bobby Darin – material that's quite different than the simple pop of his early Atco years, and even the jazzier style he used earlier on in the 60s! The set is one of two issued by the Direction label – and features Bobby taking off from some of the Tim Hardin-inspired modes he was using later on at Atlantic – picking up some of the deeper themes of the earlier singer-songwriter years – and singing in a very moody, contemplative style! According to some, Darin was aware that his health only gave him a few more years to live – which was part of the introspection of the music – and although the style owes a lot to Tim Hardin and some of his contemporaries, the songs are all originals by Darin – with some elements that are very different than before. Tracks include "Hey Magic Man", "Light Blue", "Distractions", and "Song For a Dollar". Rare Darin features related singles from the Direction sessions, plus unreleased material, and live 1969 tracks recorded at the Troubadour – titles that include "Baby May", "City Life", "Route 58", "Maybe We Can Get It Together", "RX Pyro", "Long Line Rider", "Distractions", and "Monologue Questions".

A real breakthrough moment for Marianne Faithfull – a singer who'd already been doing some incredible music in the 60s, but who moves here into deeper territory that makes her way more than just a female British singer with a bit of an edge – and really opens up that talent that would stay strong for decades! The backings are mostly acoustic – a bit rootsy, a bit folksy – in ways to match the album's collection of material by Bob Dylan, Tim Hardin, Phil Ochs, and other intellectual giants of the time – music that has a perfect fit for that strange phrasing that always marked Faithfull's later years – far more transformative to a tune than just a few years before. Titles include "Chords Of Fame", "Visions Of Johanna", "Long Black Veil", "Beware Of Darkness", "Crazy Lady Blues", "It's All Over Now Baby Blue", and "Sad Lisa". CD

The set features a really surprising collaboration with Bowie and Mick Ronson on versions of "The Man Who Sold The World" and "Watch That Man" – both pretty fantastic, and given maybe a bit more mid 70s polish than the originals, but with more than enough of Ronson's guitar to tie them strongly to the original Bowie recordings. The album also includes the great James Bond theme tune "The Man With The Golden Gun" – which is a real standout, and very much in the best legacy of Bond title tunes. Other titles include "Take Your Mama For A Ride (parts 1 & 2)", "Boy Meets Girl", "Baby I Don't Care", and "Old Fashioned Girl". LP, Vinyl record album

The combo has African origins, but they're recording here in London – which makes for a really wonderful criss-crossing of cultural modes – the same sort of heavy, dark-tinged groups you'd hear from Cymande or Demon Fuzz – both of whom are a great comparison to the sound of this group! Bass is very heavy in the mix – not dubby, but really rumbling right from the start of each tune – and helping to set up the complicated percussion patterns, fuzzy guitar bits, and nicely trippy vocals – all of which are recorded in just the right way to make the sum of the elements sound like way more than the parts. Titles include "Afro Funk", "Tei Egwu", "Hot Love", "Farewell To Ibusa", and "Try & Try". LP, Vinyl record album

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

El (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $6.99 13.99
Groovy sounds from the Vernons Girls – a larger choir who were originally created in support of a Liverpool football team – but who shrunk to a trio by the early 60s, when they recorded some very rocking material! That latter sound of the group is our favorite here – and the set includes some very cool, jaunty singles that almost feel like the kind of rock music that might have featured in an early 60s TV show – a bit less authentic, but completely charming because of that fact! The set also features a full album by the larger choir – which has jazzy and whimsical instrumentation behind the criss-crossing female voices – maybe with the playful feel of some of the King Family Christmas records. The second half of the set features material from Lyn Cornell – a member of the group, but working as a solo act – in a style that's very much in the mode of other Brit pop girl singers of the early 60s – but also with some great jazzy moments too. Vernons Girls titles include "Ten Lonely Boys", "Lost & Found", "White Bucks & Saddle Shoes", "Rain On The Roof", "We'll Gather Lilacs", "Song Of Songs", "High Wind", and "Sing For Your Supper".

British heavy metal at the start of the 80s – a time when the UK scene was rising fresh from the big jolt of the punk generation – and also maybe starting to shine as the greatest place for metal in the world! There's an intensity to these tracks that really blows away some of the groups from the previous years – particularly those who'd risen to commercial heights on major labels – as many of the acts here began in the indie scene, where there was almost a merging with punk in terms of stripped-down production and frenzied instrumentation – all of which renewed urgency in the music, or maybe gave it a quality that it never even had before! And if you think you're not a heavy metal fan, you may well think again after hearing the set – because the choice of cuts here is wonderful, even from artists who later sounded more commercial – and the whole thing's tied together with a great set of notes as well. 51 tracks in all – with work by Fist, Angel Witch, Demon Pact, Satan, Elixir, Colossus, Savage, Dark Star, Hellanbach, Lautrec, Race Against Time, Aragorn, Axis, Witchfynde, Warfare, Gaskin, Venom, Shiva, Tysondog, Avenger, Soldier, Stormtrooper, Silverwing, Warrior, Tokyo Blade, Black Rose, Vardis, Jaguar, Diamond Head, Samson, Saxon, Chevy, Atomkraft, Brooklyn, White Spirit, Rock Goddess, and others!

Like both of those groups, the core roots of the music are really changed up here – moved into something that's very much the group's own, as the heavy rhythms are laced with lots of fuzzy guitar parts – often with a deftness that could have found its home in hard rock, but which is even better here next to the warmer currents of the vocal and instrumental flow! As with Cymande, the production is nicely dark – sometimes a bit offbeat in the way the vocals are handled, which further gives the record an edge – on titles that include "Abraka", "Ole", "I Can't Be Satisfied", "Point Of No Return", and "Dancing In The Nude".

A whole new side of the talents of Sun Ra – especially if you only know the longer-style jams on some of his albums from the 60s and 70s! From the very start of his career, Ra was every bit as interested in issuing music on 45s as he was on albums – and in fact, at some of the more desperate times, the 7" single turned out to be a very affordable format to try out new ideas – including some great projects with other artists! The array of work presented here is stunning – as the set includes some very up-close and personal moments with Ra on record, plus some tight jazzy tracks from the Arkestra, surprising vocal group material designed to crack the R&B market, and some especially cool projects with other singers too. The package is put together with very detailed notes on all the singles – and while the bulk of this material comes from the key Arkestra years of the late 50s through the early 80s, there's also a few tracks from other dates too – including a handful of songs that were only issued as 45s in later years. Vinyl Part 1 is a 3LP set that focuses on the earliest years – with a total of 35 tracks in all – and titles include "Chicago USA" by The Nu Sounds, "I'm Coming Home" by Billie Hawkins, "Softalk" by Sun Ra, "Demon's Lullaby" by Le Sun Ra, "It's Christmas Time" by The Qualities, "M Uck M Uck (Matt Matt)" by Yochanan, "Bye Bye" by The Cosmic Rays, "October" by Sun Ra, "Adventur In Space" by Sun Ra, "Back In Your Own Backyard" by Hattie Randolph, "The Sun One" by Yochanan, "Dreaming" by The Cosmic Rays, "The Sun Man Speaks" by Yochanan, "Daddy's Gonna Tell You No Lie" by The Cosmic Rays, "Last Call For Love" by Billie Hawkins, and "Super Blonde" by Sun Ra.

Harry NilssonPandemonium Shadow Show ... LP
RCA, 1967. Very Good+ ... $34.99
Brilliant stuff – and exactly the place to start with Harry Nilsson! Long before his style had become cliched – or before it was copied by too many others – Nilsson cut this mad album of wonderful little songs – sort of a cross between folksy singer-songwriter work, and more baroque-oriented styles, like those of Scott Walker – and like Walker, in a really unique space of its own! The key element here is whimsy – and Nilsson let arranger George Tipton take him all over the map, from the somber tone of his classic "Without Her", to the spacious joy of "River Deep Mountain High", to the silliness of "1941", and the sad beauty of "She's Leaving Home". Great stuff all around – with a sound that's impossible to pinpoint, but which is perfect all the way through! LP, Vinyl record album

Frank Strozier & Booker LittleWaltz Of The Demons (aka Fantastic Frank Strozier) ... LP
Vee Jay/Affinity (UK), 1959. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A seminal early recording from one of our favorite reed players ever! In the late 1950s, the young Frank Strozier came up to Chicago from Memphis, along with his longtime friend, pianist Harold Mabern. The two of them both settled nicely in the city's MJT+3 combo, where they proceeded to recorde some incredible hardbop sessions for Vee Jay. During that same time, Strozier began to emerge as a strong soloist and a competent leader in his own right, and Vee Jay gave him a much-needed crack at this debut album. The session's a perfect showcase for Strozier's lyrical beauty, and given the quality of the work, it's a wonder he was never more famous. The group's a quintet, and Strozier's ably teamed with Booker Little, Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers, and Jimmy Cobb. Titles include "WK Blues", "Waltz Of The Demons", "Runnin", and "Off Shore".

Finders Keepers (UK), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
If that creepy cover image alone isn't more than enough to make you want this record, the magical music within will certainly tip the balance! Jean-Bernard Raiteux may be best known for his French funk sounds in the Harlem Pop Trotters, but he's even more weird and wonderful here – turning in a wickedly groovy score for Jess Franco's film Les Demons (aka The Devils), with trippy sounds that are every bat as great as the music used in Franco's classic Vampyros Lesbos! The music has currents of jazz, funk, and psych – often all operating at once, with cool keyboards, fuzzy guitar, and lots of these fluttering flute lines that almost sound like Harold McNair or Roland Kirk on acid – blowing their minds, as they blow their minds out through their reed instruments too. Titles include "The Inquisition", "Kathleen Writhing", "The Stake", "The Seduction Of Winter", "The Second Inquisition", "A Witch's Daughter", and "Three Serpents To Kathleen's Dwelling".

Toshiko AkioshiToshiko & Modern Jazz (aka Toshiko Mariano & Her Big Band Recorded In Tokyo) ... LP
Columbia (Japan), 1964. Near Mint- ... $38.99
Killer rare jazz material from Japan! Toshiko Akioshi was one of Japan's greatest jazz musicians, and in the late 50s she came to the US, made her name, and married alto great Charlie Mariano. At some point in the early 60s, they moved back to Japan and had a rich influence on the jazz scene in Tokyo – as is ably demonstrated by this LP! The album's a fantastic set of large group arrangements by Toshiko and Charlie – and the soloists (besides the two of them) include some of Japan's greatest players, like Sleepy Matsumoto and Shigeo Suzuki. Just to make sure the whole thing swings, there's rhythm by an American duo of Paul Chambers & Jimmy Cobb, and believe us, they do everything they can to kick the group hard! We've loved this one for years. Nice titles include "The Shout", "Israel", "Land Of Peace", and "Kisarazu Jinku". Also issued in the US on Vee Jay. LP, Vinyl record album

Gene AmmonsSoulful Moods Of Gene Ammons ... LP
Moodsville, Early 60s. Good+ ... $4.99
Beautiful beautiful work from tenorist Gene Ammons – and an album that really demonstrates that during the 60s, one of Ammons' strongest suits was his work with a mellow tune or ballad! The tracks here are wonderfully laidback, but never sleepy – very soulful, and solidly put together in that Ammons-made gentle-blown way – using just a few notes to send the message out with a powerful punch, without ever overdoing things the way that a few of his tenor contemporaries might be tempted to do! The group's a great fit too – with the lovely Patti Brown on piano, plus bass from George Duvivier and bass from Ed Shaughnessy – and titles include "Two Different Worlds", "Skylark", "Three Little Words", "Street Of Dreams", and "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To".

Peter BenjaminsonMary Wells – The Tumultuous Life Of Motown's First Superstar (hardcover) ... Book
Chicago Review Press, 2012. New Copy ... $4.99 29.95
A stunning look at the great Mary Wells – one of Motown's first female acts of the 60s, and one of the decade's most important early soul figures as well! Mary's work on record is very well-known, but the story behind the music is completely different, and surprisingly dark at times – a tale of a talented artist often caught between larger corporate forces, and personal antagonists as well – not to mention her own personal demons. Peter Benjaminson does a great job of getting at all these details without being overly sensational – and he works in lots of wonderful personal recollections from friends and colleagues who really help illuminate the more private moments. The book is over 300 pages, hardcover, with some black and white photos. Book

Gary BurtonSeven Songs For Quartet & Chamber Orchestra ... LP
ECM (Germany), 1974. Near Mint- ... $8.99
A really wonderful setting for the vibes of Gary Burton – a special ECM session that pairs his quartet with larger orchestral backdrops – all conducted by Michael Gibbs, who also wrote the music for the date! Gibbs had already risen to fame by the time of this record – thanks to some groundbreaking albums for large ensembles on the British jazz scene of the late 60s – where he demonstrated a tremendous ear for intimate tones and subtle sounds amidst a larger group. Here, that talent turns out to work perfectly for the rich tones of Burton's vibes – allowing them to develop slowly and spaciously, despite the larger orchestra. The core quartet also features Michael Goodrick on guitar, Steve Swallow on bass, and Ted Seibs on drums – and titles include "The Rain Before It Falls", "Three", "Phases", "Throb", and "Nocturne Vulgaire/Arise Her Eyes".

Clarke Boland Big BandAt Her Majesty's Pleasure ... LP
Black Lion, 1969. Near Mint- ... $3.99
One of the greatest long-form albums from the Clarke Boland Big Band – a sophisticated suite that not only shows off the writing ability of Francy Boland, but also demonstrates the group's ability to swing like a mofo, even when things are serious! The album's a jazz suite written by Boland, and dedicated to the great prisons of England – where Johnny Griffin was once kept "At Her Majesty's Pleasure", due to non-payment of some income tax. The experience of Griffin led Boland to explore the idea of the British penal system with a number of powerful emotional themes, and the result of this writing is one of the CBBB's best albums of the late 60s – filled with rich colors and tones that go far beyond the earlier modes of the group, but without some of the too-complicated elements that sometimes show up in later suites. A good part of the album's success comes from the strength of the soloists – players who include Johnny Griffin and Ronnie Scott on tenor, Tony Coe on clarinet, Sahib Shihab on flute and soprano, Kenny Wheeler and Benny Bailey on trumpets, and Ake Persson and Nat Peck on trombones. Titles include "Pentonville", "Wormwood Scrubs", "Doing Time", "Broadmoor", and "Going Straight". LP, Vinyl record album

John Coltrane & Hank MobleyTenor Conclave (second cover) ... LP
Prestige, 1956. Very Good+ ... $29.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Elvis CostelloAlmost Blue ... LP
Columbia, 1981. Very Good ... $6.99
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

Tenorist George Coleman's playing with the group on the set – proving again that he's got a depth that few people ever seem to give him credit for – and that it wasn't just Wayne Shorter who made the 60s Davis quintet so great.

The Lyricism CD features appearances by Company Flow, Black Thought & Malik B of the Roots, Mos Def, Aesop Rock, Zap Mama and others. The set finds Krush in his most hip hop reverent game, naturally – but he runs the gamut of possibilities within the genre! Tracks include "Only The Strong Survive (Bon mix)" feat CL Smooth, "Vision Of Art (Broken mix)" feat Company Flow, "Zen Approach (Cradle mix)" feat Black Thought, "Kill Switch (Beep mix)" feat Aesop Rock, "Song For John Walker (Sticky mix)" feat Anticon, "Danger Of Love (Gray-Sky mix)" feat Zap Mama, "Shinjiro (Harsh mix)" feat Mos Def and more.

This gives Krush ample opportunity to demonstrate his skills as one the most renowned turnablists ever – with tracks that range from insistently thumping, to ambient and trippy!

Fats DominoFats Domino Swings ... LP
Imperial, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Fats Domino Swings – a total of 12 million records, according to the cover! We're not sure if that claim's accurate or not, but we can say that the album's got a million dollar sound, and is a perfect demonstration of the genius that made Domino unlike anyone else back in the day – a completely unique artist to rise from the New Orleans scene in the 50s, but one who's also steeped in all the musical roots of the city! Fats has a way of laying down on the piano that brings forward older riffing styles, but in a leaner level that sits brilliantly alongside his raspy, early soul vocals – and the tight, jaunty rhythms of the tunes – which again are kind of a compression of older Nola modes, in a way that so many others would copy over the years. The set features a mix of hits like "I'm Walkin" and "Blueberry Hill", and great lesser known numbers like "Going To The River", "I'm In Love Again", "Bo Weevil", and "Whole Lotta Loving".

Diana DorsSwingin Dors ... LP
Columbia, 1960. Very Good ... $19.99
One of the sexiest sets of vocal jazz to ever come from the British scene – a classic 1960 album by the lovely Diana Dors – easily one of England's best answers to American cheesecake singers of the 50s! As you'll notice by the cover, Diana's got a look that's right up there with Marilyn Monroe or Jayne Mansfield – but as a singer, she's far better – with a full range, and good sense of expression – often delivered in the manner of some of the best vocalists working in the US for RCA in the late 50s. The backings are great too – handled by the Wally Stott orchestra with a nice sense of jazz throughout – some really swinging horns that are quite unusual for a UK session like this at the time – and which really further the American feel of the set. Titles include "That's How It Is", "Namely You", "The Point Of No Return", "Roller Coaster Blues", "The Gentleman Is A Dope", "April Heart", "I'm In Love For The Very First Time", and "Tired Of Love".

That somewhat subtle history shouldn't mark the album, though – as it's a wonderful demonstration of Evans at his lyrical best – working perfectly in a trio with Chuck Israels on bass and Larry Bunker on drums – both players who really share Bill's sense of sound on the set. Titles include "Stella By Starlight", "What Kind Of Fool Am I?", "Round Midnight", "How Deep Is The Ocean", "Nardis", "Someday My Prince Will Come", "How My Heart Sings", and "The Boy Next Door".

Riverside, 1961. Near Mint- ... $16.99
One of Bill Evans' landmark sessions with the young bassist Scott LaFaro – a player who made key contributions on every record he touched, then left this earth far too soon in his career! The live session's a perfect demonstration of the way that the Evans trio format not only re-worked the use of the piano in jazz, but also the bass and drums as well – as LaFaro's deeply evocative playing is paired with the equally fresh drum work of Paul Motian – heard here at his youthful early best, before some of his contributions to jazz had become cliche in the hands of other players. The session was caught live at the Village Vanguard on the night of June 25, 1961 – and titles include longish takes on "Solar", "Jade Visions", "Gloria's Step", and "Alice In Wonderland".

Shemp, 1984. Very Good+ ... $29.99
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".

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)".

The collection goes for the tunes from those sets that demonstrate the freer, hipper side of the group's conception at the time – tunes that are clearly inspired by the jazz of Coltrane and Wayne Shorter, and which bring in a surprisingly complex set of rhythms that really change things up from the shorter Jazz Crusaders successes of earlier years.

The album does feature a few of the more blazing classics, but all in all, this one demonstrates Richard's versatility more than some of his 50s work. Fabulous tracks from true legend!

Murray McNabbWay In Is The Way Out – Music Of Murray McNabb (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Sarang Bang (New Zealand), Late 70s/1980s/2000s. Sealed 2LP Gatefold ... $8.99
A much-needed look at the work of New Zealand keyboardist/composer Murray McNabb – an artist who's hardly known within his own nation, much less the rest of the world – but one who comes across here with a wonderful array of sounds! The record mixes together vintage recordings from the 70s and 80s with a few more contemporary tracks – and throughout it all, Murray's a hell of a talent with a really revelatory sound – able to create these colors and tones with a very spiritual vibe – often playing electric piano, but in a setting that also has plenty of strong acoustic elements too – including great reeds from Aussie jazz legend Brian Smith, whose sharp edges really bring a lot of bite to the record! A few numbers are warm, and almost funky – and throughout the whole set, McNabb demonstrates this great ear for lyrical lines that have a great deal of power, and which never fail to captivate our ears. Other musicians include Gianmarco Liguori or Tuhi Timoti on guitar, Kim Paterson on trumpet, and Peter Wood on vibes – and a number of tracks are taken from tapes, without set dates of recording. Titles include "Paradox", "The Private Life Of Birds", "Parisienne", "Song For The Dreamweaver", "Mr Gone", "Karmapa Chenno", "Coquero", "Magenta", "King Kong", "Fourth World", "Meditation In D", and "Radio Priestess".

Carmen's singing in a lush, romantic style – working with backings from Jack Pleis and Ralph Burns – in a mode that features larger orchestrations, but which still very much has Carmen's vocals at the top of the mix. As was well demonstrated by Carmen in many later recordings, she hardly needs a band to help her set a mood – and on this set, although the orchestra is large, they're there mostly to color in the spaces between the notes, and create more of backdrop for Carmen's evocative vocals. Titles include "But Beautiful", "Midnight Sun", "My Future Just Passed", "Yesterdays", "Star Eyes", "We'll Be Together Again", and "Speak Low". CD

Charles MingusWonderland (aka Jazz Portraits) (Solid State) ... LP
United Artists/Solid State, 1959. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $11.99
One of the great lost sessions in the Mingus canon! Mingus leads a sharp small group here, a quintet featuring Booker Ervin, John Handy, Richard Wyands, and Dannie Richmond, of course. The session was recorded live at the Nonagon Gallery in New York, and has that sort of arch-modernist groove that was Mingus' hallmark in these key late 50's years. Ervin, as always, is amazing, and John Handy, who makes his recording debut here, demonstrates the genius that Mingus had for spotting brilliant young players as he plays with the sort of imagination and intensity that he only ever managed to hit again on one or two of his own records as a leader. The record's got 4 long tracks, including long takes of "Nostalgia In Times Square", "Alice's Wonderland", and "No Private Income Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

MonksEarly Years 1964/1965 (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Light In The Attic, 1964/1965. New Copy ... $5.99
Primitive genius from the mighty Monks – their early demos for tracks that would eventually be ignited and explode on record for the uber-essential Black Monk Time LP and others – including the pre-Monks single by The 5 Torquays – issued properly in full for the first time ever by Light In The Attic! The thing that knocked us out about the Early Years compilation almost immediately is how sharp and clear the sound is – you never know the recording quality you'll get with the word "demo" in the title, but this stuff sounds great – secondly, the tracks demonstrate just how fierce these dudes were early on! The eerie organ, tribal thump of the drums, fuzzed out guitar and sneering vocals are in full glory here. This is a necessary set for longtime fans and would even serve a solid into to the uninitiated – and Light In The Attic has done an impeccable job with the booklet, photos and overall presentation. Pure greatness! Titles include "Monk Time", "Love Came Tumblin Down", "Boys Are Boys", "Space Age", "We Do Wie Du", "I Hate You", "Pretty Suzanne", "Higgle-Dy-Piggle-Dy", "Hushie Pushie", "Oh, How To Do Now" and more from the '65 demos, plus 2 tracks from the a single recorded by the pre-Monks moniker "The 5 Torquays" in '64: the earlier version "Boys Are Boys" plus "There She Walks".

✨✧ William Parker/In Order To SurviveLive/Shapeshifter ... CD
Aum Fidelity, 2019. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 20.98
William Parker works here with his excellent In Order To Survive quartet – a fantastic lineup that features Rob Brown on alto sax, Cooper-Moore on piano, and Hamid Drake on drums – a very fluid, very well-matched group who are able to follow Parker in his farthest musical explorations! Tracks are all long, and relatively free – but as with Parker's bass over the decades, there's always this sense of inherent logic that comes through – possibly his strong spirit which unites the players, even indirectly – but also just a proud presence that never seems to let us down. The music was all recorded live on a single night at Shapeshifter Lab in Brooklyn – and titles include "Demons Lining The Halls Of Justice", "Eternity", "In Order To Survive", "Newark", and the long "Eternal Is The Voice Of Love" suite.

✨✧ Art PepperReturn Of Art Pepper – The Complete Art Pepper Aladdin Recordings Vol 1 ... CD
Jazz West/Blue Note, 1956. Used ... $5.99
Given that Pepper was on and off the LA scene a fair bit in the 50s – due to personal trouble and legal battles – this album's not so much "the return", as it is one of Pepper's many strong steps back into the studio, a place in which he demonstrated an uncanny ability to craft brilliant work, despite the turmoil going on around him. The set's as classic as you can get for Pepper – right down to the classic William Claxton photo on the cover (which has a chilling story that you'll find in Art's autobiography). Players include Jack Sheldon, Russ Freeman, Leroy Vinnegar, and Shelly Manne – and titles include "Pepper Returns", "Funny Blues", "Angel Wings", "Walkin Out Blues", "Five More", "Minority", and "Mambo De La Pinta".

Long-awaited instrumentals version of the 2016 team-up LP with Smoke DZA!

PharcydeSold My Soul – The Remix & Rarity Collection ... CD
Funky Chemist/Traffic, 1990s. Used 2CD ... $9.99
A double disc batch of remixes and rarities from the Pharcyde – many of which appeared on 12-inches over the years, and are long overdue for a CD retrospective! This relative goldmine of loopy left coast hip hop is comprised of alternate mixes of the hits and album cuts by the legendary crew – with remix work and appearances by Jay Dee, Brand New Heavies, Jazzyfatnastees, Rae & Christian, Beatminerz, Kenny Dope and others – plus some choice b-sides! 24 tracks in all: "Soul Flower (Brand New Heavies version)", "Ya Mama (Matt Dike rmx)", "Otha Fish (LA Jay rmx)", "Drop (Da Beatminerz rmx)", "Pandemonium", "Y?

Procol HarumBroken Barricades (with bonus tracks) (3CD set) ... CD
A&M/Esoteric (UK), 1971. New Copy 3CD ... $24.99
A fantastic fifth album from Procol Harum – one that really demonstrates the ever-changing energy of the group, and the way they seemed to find a fresh new focus with each of their early albums! The vocals of Gary Brooker are even more wonderful than ever – rejoined here with the talents of organist Keith Reid, who is back in the group – cementing a musical partnership that pushes forward with stronger, more rockish modes throughout – a lean quality that really seems to bring out the best in everyone! The set begins with the fantastic "Simple Sister" – the moves on through other great numbers that include "Luskus Delph", "Power Failure", "Memorial Drive", "Song For A Dreamer", "Broken Barricades", and "Playmate Of The Mouth". This huge 3CD edition features early/alternate mixes of the full album on CD1 – and CD2 features a 12 track live set recorded in New York for WPLJ radio in 1971, plus four more BBC tracks from the same year. CD3 features 11 tracks recorded for Sveriges Radio in Stockholm in 1971 – including two that were not broadcast at the time! CD

Don PullenEvidence Of Things Unseen ... LP
Black Saint (Italy), 1983. Near Mint- ... $24.99
Sensitive solo work from Don Pullen – just the kind of record that demonstrates why he was one of the few free players of his generation who could also grab a bit slice of mainstream ears as well! Some moments on the set are quite unbridled, but never without a sense of structure – kind of a soulful undercurrent that really balances out nicely with Pullen's bolder notes – and which creates a strong bridge to some of the mellower, more introspective moments that round out the record wonderfully – almost with a Jaki Byard-like sense of timelessness. Titles include "Evidence Of Things Unseen", "Victory Dance", "In The Beginning", "Perseverance", and "Rejoice". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Max RoachSpeak, Brother, Speak ... LP
Fantasy, 1962. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
Solidly righteous jazz from the Max Roach of the 60s – recorded at a time when the player was really breaking away from his straighter hardbop roots, and delving deeper into more freely soulful jazz expression! The record only features 2 long tracks – each a side apiece – played by Max with a quartet that includes Clifford Jordan on tenor, Eddie Khan on bass, and Mal Waldron on piano. Jordan really takes off on the album – demonstrating a great ability for long blowing and creative exploration that was only hinted at on his other studio sessions at the time, and which really points the way towards some of his freer-thinking records of the 70s. Waldron is great too – bringing in some nicely darker colors that really help to round out the sound. Titles include "Speak Brother Speak" and "A Variation". LP, Vinyl record album
(Maroon label pressing, with deep groove – in a heavy glossy cover. A great copy!)

Annie RossAnnie Ross Sings A Song With Mulligan ... LP
World Pacific, 1959. Very Good- ... $4.99
One of the few albums that singer Annie Ross cut on her own away from the Lambert, Hendricks, & Ross group while she was still living in the US – and a great little set recorded with a group led by Gerry Mulligan! The sound is west coast cool all the way through – with players who include Chet Baker, Art Farmer, Dave Bailey, and Henry Grimes – and although Annie's in the lead on most of the set, but Gerry slides in some lean solos which open up the tracks nicely! Ross is a bit less in a vocalese mode than with LHR, in ways that really demonstrate her skills with ballads and gentler cuts – and given the support from Mulligan and crew, the album's got a very solid jazz foundation overall. Titles include "All Of You", "Give Me The Simple Life", "This Is Always", "It Don't Mean A Thing", and "I Feel Pretty". LP, Vinyl record album

Woody ShawIn My Own Sweet Way ... CD
In & Out (Germany), 1989. Used ... $8.99
A great later date from Woody Shaw – fully recorded in the CD generation, which gives the trumpeter even more room to stretch out than usual! The tracks are perfect demonstrations of the way that Shaw can open up and really fill the space of a longer tune – improvising soulful magic at a level that's maybe only matched by Freddie Hubbard during his return to acoustic jazz during the same time. The overall sounds are more inside than some of Woody's albums of the 70s, but no less inspiring – and the group here features Fred Henke on piano, Neil Swainson on bass, and Alex Deutsch on drums – a great rhythm section that hits some warmly flowing rhythms. Titles include "The Dragon", "Joshua C", "In Your Own Sweet Way", "The Organ Grinder", and "Just A Ballad For Woody". CD

Smuggler BrothersMusicone ... CD
Schema (Italy), 2019. New Copy ... $19.99
Heavy funk from Smuggler Brothers – an Italian group who start out in the vintage cop/crime modes of 70s soundtracks, but then bring in a whole host of different elements to play in the mix! The core grooves are heavy on bass, drums, and lots of nice keyboards – but there lots more going on in the all-instrumental tracks – unusual electronics, offbeat horns, sweet percussion, and even some mandolin that somehow comes into the music at one point! Production is by Massimo Martellotta of Calibro 35 – who gets the sound every bit as right as his own group – on titles that include "Kemonia Flow", "Gran Fango", "Sciarra O'Scaro", "Suddenly", "T'Anno", and "Lost In Val Demone".

SOS BandSOS ... CD
Tabu, 1980. Used ... $11.99
The seminal first album from the SOS Band – a record that really showcases the new sound of soul for the 80s, yet still holds onto all the best elements of the previous decade too! These guys have a great ear for groovers – well-demonstrated by the play they got on the dancefloor – yet they've also got a deeper sense of soul than some of their club contemporaries as well – heard not just on the ensemble vocals for the upbeat tracks, but especially on some of the album's great mellow steppers too! It's these laidback cuts that have always kept the album strong for us – showing that SOS are way more than just another fast funk band, and can really go deep, and stay with it for the long haul. Fred Wesley helped a bit on the arrangements – and titles include "Take Your Time", "Love Won't Wait For Love", "SOS (Dit Dit Dit Dash Dash Dash Dit Dit Dit)", "Take Love Where You Find It", and "Open Letter".
