DevoDuty Now For The Future (magenta vinyl pressing) ... LP
Warner/Rhino, 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99
Devo's second album didn't scare the bejesus out of 70s rock fans in the way of their agitpop masterpiece debut, and the group's mainstream salad days of "Whip It" were still another year or two away, but nowadays we wouldn't trade Duty Now For The Future for just about any post punk album of the time! At this point the punk-era crunch was still a sizable portion of the plate – for that extra aggro kick behind the squealing synthesizers and primitive electronics. Long underappreciated, and all but ignored in the CD era, Duty. . .has excellent tracks that will always be loved by the Spuds even if WEA kept it buried too long! "Devo Corporate Anthem", "Clockout", "Wiggly World", "Blockhead", "Smart Patrol/Mr. DNA", "Red Eye" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ DevoHardcore Vol 1 ... LP
Ryko/Superior Viaduct, 1970s. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
Early art punk genius from Devo – the amazing underground material from the pre-WB years – when they were still Ohio college students! Hardcore Volume 1 features 4 track recordings made in the mid 70s, including some early versions of tracks they'd re-recorded later for their first proper album – including "Jocko Homo", "Mongoloid", "Soo Bawls" and their deranged cover of "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" – and a whole bunch more that have only ever been heard by hardcore spuds. It has a cruder sound than their pop years and a darker, chillier vibe that's pretty incredible, but the concept is in full form, even at this early point! Other tracks include "Mechanical Man", "I'm A Potato", "Uglatto", "Stop Look And Listen"and more. LP, Vinyl record album

DevoNew Traditionalists (colored vinyl pressing – with poster) ... LP
Warner/Rhino, 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99 23.98
A great one from Devo – capping off their classic era when they could hardly do wrong! By 1981, the gentlemen Devo had been up to their collective arse in irony since the early 70s, and having made a sizable fortune for the Brothers' Warner with the ultra-ironic "Whip It" the previous year, they took a sharp right turn into cranky sincerity. They did so on a wave of new wave synth funk, of course, resulting in the all-time great singles "Beautiful World", "Through Being Cool" and a few more gems. Mtv and a lot of the fans couldn't understand why 5 guys with plastic hair and outerspace uniforms were no longer playing it for laughs and thus killed the prospect of Devo as hitmakers for the rest of the decade! A worthy effort from one of the most innovative pop groups ever! Other tracks include "Pity You", "Soft Things","Going Under", "Race Of Doom", "Love Without Anger" and "Enough Said".

DevoQ: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo! ... LP
Warner, 1978. Near Mint- ... $39.99
Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah, Y- Y- Y- Y- Y- Y- Y-eah, this is one of best art rock albums of all time – the Eno produced full length debut of Devo – the caustic, sarcastic and fun soundtrack to society's devolution! There's nothing we don't love about Devo at this point, from their unprecedented use of multimedia, to the hard to pull off fusion of sneering social and pop culture satire with good humored fun, and that's just the conceptual stuff. The songs are original and inimitably great, too, with those squeeling synth punk dynamics. Tracks include (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" (best rock cover ever?) "Jocko Homo", "Mongoloid", "Uncontrollable Urge", "Space Junk", "Come Back Jonee", "Sloppy (I Saw My Baby Gettin')" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Warner, 1982. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Hey Spud boy! You need this record. Definitely underrated in the grand scheme, Oh No! finds the boys rocking a much more straightforward, nerdy computer funk sound. It sort of takes a page from the 80s Kraftwerk playbook with the grid-patterned 80s computer tomfoolery, albeit with a far more goofball pop groove. Includes the completely great singles "Time Out For Fun","Peek-a-boo!" and "That's Good", plus "Out Of Sync", "Explosions", "Patterns", "Big Mess", "Speed Racer", "What I Must Do", "I Desire" and "Deep Sleep".

✨✧ VariousLife Aquatic – Original Soundtrack (cerulean blue vinyl pressing) (2021 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Hollywood, 2004. New Copy 2LP ... On July 17, 2021
The soundtrack to the second most underrated of Wes Anderson's films – the strangely wonderful seafaring adventure the Life Aquatic! The heart of the album is the delicate, beautiful solo acoustic covers of David Bowie tunes by Brazil's Seu Jorge – plus some great synth and symph scoring by Devo's Mark Mothersbaugh. Seu commandeers "Rebel Rebel", "Life On Mars", "Starman" and "Five Years" – his gruff, but sweet vocals crooning mostly in Portugese, while Bowie's instantly identifiable melodies easily float to the surface. Mothersbaugh's soundtrack compositions get better and more extroverted with each project, this one branching off from the faux stuffy baroque touches he spun so wonderfully on Rushmore and the Royal Tennenbaums, and even cooking up some blunt, old school synthesizer noisiness that'll please the Spuds! This being a Wes Anderson film, there's some leftfield hits and pop oddities, too. 20 tracks in all, including score pieces, the Jorge/Bowie tunes, plus "Shark Attack Theme" and more by Sven Libaek, "La Nina De Puerta Oscura" by Paco De Lucia, "Search And Destroy" by Iggy & The Stooges, "30 Century Man" by Scott Walker, "Gut Feeling" by Devo and more. As was the case with Anderson's Bottlerocket, the film's critics will slowly shrink into silence over the next few years and the Life Aquatic will be very fondly remembered.

Drag City, 2016. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A grimy gem from the indefatigable Ty Segall! Backed by here by The Muggers – with frequent co-horts including Mikal Cronin and new collaborators Emmett Kelly (Cairo Gang), Dale Crover (Melvins) and others – it's got a tense, murky vibe quite unlike his earlier records! It's dense and dissonant, but has strong songcraft – with weird bits of keyboard that remind us of pre-WB Devo (as does the creepy baby mask on the cover...coincidence?) without burying the raw garagey rock at the core. Includes "Squealer", "Californian Hills", "Emotional Mugger/Leopard Priestess", "Breakfast Eggs", "Diversion", "Baby Big Man (I Want A Mommy)", "Mandy Cream", "Candy Sam", "Squeler Two".

Devonte Hynes (Blood Orange)Queen & Slim ... LP
Domino, 2020. New Copy ... $21.99 22.99
Sublime soundtrack work from Devonte Hynes – an artist you might know under other sounds as Blood Orange, but who emerges here as a film score force to be reckoned with – creating these amazing tracks that are a balance between richness and subtle instrumentation! The film is fantastic (one of our favorites in years) – and Devonte's music is a key part of its creative success – carefully-chosen electric and acoustic elements, sometimes balanced with larger arrangements, but often done in a lean style that really fits the intimacy of the story. The string passages alone are completely captivating, and there's some haunting piano and keyboard elements that are wonderful too – on titles that include "Get Upstairs", "Slim's Horse", "What's Next", "A Couple Deer", "This Is A Safe Place", "Bed", and "Sneak Out".

BBE (UK), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy 2CD ... $32.99 35.99
The legend of Teena Marie lives again, and in a really beautiful way – as John Morales serves up tunes that work together almost as a tribute to the memory of the lady – with these really fresh versions that seem to add a lot of majesty to the sound as well! These aren't easy remixes that just focus on the hooks – and instead, Morales strips the tunes down and builds them up from the core – sometimes adding elements that were removed from the original versions that were issued, or bringing in his own touches in ways that make us wonder what sort of magic might have happened, had Motown let John into the studio to produce some of her classic albums. Make no mistake, if you love Teena Marie, you'll find plenty here to love – but the set is also just way more than a set of remixes too – with sublime takes on tunes that include "You're All The Boogie I Need", "I Need Your Lovin", "365", "Portuguese Love", "Chains", "It Must Be Magic", "First Class Love", "Aladdin's Lamp", "Behind The Groove", "Square Biz", "Now That I Have You", "You're All The Boogie I Need", "I'm A Sucker For Your Love (live)", "Wasn't I Good To You", "More Love", "Lonely Desire", and her duet with Rick James on "Fire & Desire".

✨✧ John McLaughlinDevotion ... LP
Douglas, 1970. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An intensely jamming album from guitarist John McLaughlin – and a record that set a whole new tone for electric jazz in the 70s! The album was recorded shortly after McLaughlin's work with Miles Davis on Bitches Brew and Tony Williams on the first Emergency album – and in a way, it's a key piece of the jazz-rock fusion puzzle that has those two sets as cornerstones. McLaughlin's working here with keyboardist Larry Young from the Emergency group – playing both his usual organ on the record, plus a bit of electric piano – and the rest of the group includes bassist Billy Rich, plus superdrummer Buddy Miles – really giving a lot of power to the album's sound at the bottom! McLaughlin is getting into a bit of his mystic trip on the record, but is still playing with a lot of electric power here – plenty distorted and fuzzy on most numbers, and really jamming throughout! Titles include "Devotion", "Dragon Song", "Marbles", "Siren", "Don't Let The Dragon Eat Your Mother", and "Purpose Of When". LP, Vinyl record album

Without a doubt, Alec R. Costandinos was one of the strangest disco arranger/producers of the 70s! He had a very baroque vision that took full advantage of the disco industry's heavy cash to turn out these mini disco symphonies filled with full orchestral strings, funky beats, and very high concepts – like the on this album, a suite of 5 long tracks devoted to the Romeo & Juliet legend. Alan Hawkshaw handled keyboards along with Alec, and there's a lot of heavy guitars sweeping in and out of the mix. Not totally soulful stuff, but a great one to chill to in the VIP room!

Really fantastic material from legendary pianist Abdullah Ibrahim – a set cut with a larger group of musicians, which we like even more than Ibrahim's work in a solo or trio format! The group here is his Ekaya ensemble – who flesh out Abdullah's larger musical ideas in a really great way – providing this sensitive soul and spirit for his work on piano – which, after all these years, still echoes the rhythmic impulses that made him such a standout in the 60s – but which also has this matured approach to color and tone that's really wonderful – and beautifully illuminated by the group! Players include Cleave Guyton Jr on alto and flute, Lance Bryant on tenor, Andrea Murchison on trombone, and Marshall McDonald on baritone – and the rhythm section features great work from Will Terrill on drums, and Noah Jackson on bass and cello.

Monica's got a really sweet vocal style – a bit sexy, and certainly adult – arranged here with some nice jazzy touches from Frank DeVol, working in backings that are a lot hipper than those we remember him using with other singers from the time. Monica handles herself like a big girl in front of all those Marines – all-woman, but clearly not giving it away to the first man in blue who walks down the street.

Jasmine, 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 12.99
Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes are certainly best-known for their huge Philly hits of the 70s with Teddy Pendergrass on vocals – but the group had a very long legacy that includes countless indie recordings in the years before their hooked up with Gamble & Huff – a good deal of which are included in this set! As most folks know, Harold Melvin was never the lead singer – maybe more of a creative force in the group, which shifted often over these early years, but continued to grow and mature – with styles that begin in maybe more of a postwar jump/jazz sort of mode, then evolve into styles we no more clearly as doo wop and early soul. The set opens the door very wide – so much so that there might be a few tracks that aren't fully established as having Melvin's involvement – and the package features 25 titles in all, including related tracks issued by Todd Randall and Bernie Williams, who were with the group. Titles include "My Hero", "The Letter", "Hey Doc", "The Retribution Blues", "With This Pen", "If It's Our Destiny", "She Is Mine", "Pucker Your Lips", "Devoted To You", "O Holy Nite", "WPLJ", and "While I'm Away".

PilotPilot – The Albums (From The Album Of The Same Name/Second Flight/Morin Heights/Two's A Crowd/bonus tracks) (4CD set) ... CD
EMI/7T's (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 4CD ... $29.99
Sharp hooks, huge melodies, and 70s guitar pop greatness from Pilot – a genius pop group who only gave the world a handful of records, all of them pretty darn great! From The Album Of The Same Name includes their signature tune, "Magic" – and it's one of those songs everyone knows, whether or not they no who made it – but Pilot soars all around on these tunes. The guitars have punch, but the falsetto vocals are the main cabin of this vessel – and it's grand 70s soft rock of the first order! Other tracks include "Just A Smile", Lucky For Some", "Girl Next Door", "Sooner Or Later", "Never Give Up", "Sky Blue", "Never Give Up", and "Over The Moon". Second Flight is the excellent second album from Pilot, really perfecting the guitars, keyboards and vocals and hooks formula that shot them into the pop consciousness a year or so earlier – probably their best album ever! The opener "You're My No 1" is so catchy, we can hardly believe it's not a throwback pop radio staple, and the record has a few of tracks nearly as grand. The vocals & harmonies are better arranged, and the guitars and keyboards are in that great comfort zone between the glam pop of the previous couple years and the new wave pop to come. Somewhat silly bubble gum lyricism, sure, but it's tasty stuff! Other tracks include "January", "Love Is", "Call Me Round", "To You Alone", "Passion Piece", "Dear Artist" and more, plus the bonus demos "You're Devotion", "Love Is", "January" and "Lady Luck". Morin Heights is later work from 70s soft rock tunesmiths Pilot – a couple years on from their biggest hit, but still making gloriously catchy tunes! The hallmarks of their earlier stuff is here, with some twists & turns. The lyrics are the kind of lovestruck or lovelorn naivete that's cloying to some, and hopelessly endearing to others – relying more this time out and an overall catchiness than huge choruses and hummable singles. We'd fly with these guys anytime! Titles include "Hold On", "Canada", "First After Me", "Steps", "The Mover", "Penny In My Pocket", and "Maniac". Two's A Crowd is the last full 70s album from Pilot – just a duo by this point, but working with all the punch and panache of their early records! As before, their ability for hook-heavy tunes is amazing – as there's so many numbers here that could have been huge AM radio hits, but which also have some surprisingly thoughtful lyrical touches, and arrangements that are simple, but which really pack a hell of a punch. Titles include "Monday Tuesday", "Big Screen Kill", "Creeping Round At Midnight", "Library Door", and "Mr Do Or Die". CD features lots of related bonus tracks – including "Pamela", "Ra Ta Ta", "Just Let Me Be", "Maniac", "Us", "Lady Luck", "No Ties No Strings", "Are You In Love", "Just A Smile", and "Stop & Let Go".

Society Hill, 2019. New Copy ... $4.99 15.99
The Society Hill label goes pop, but not in a contemporary way – as the company's always been devoted to the best classic sounds of 70s Philly – which it explores here with the help of three different singers! The tunes include a lot of crossover classics you'd know from 70s radio, but retuned here a bit with help from producer/arranger Butch Ingram – and given some occasional lyrical twists from the singers too – a shifting lineup that features Cherrill Rae, Rene Goodwin, and Teddi Fusco. Titles include "Through The Fire", "Since I Lost My Baby", "Love Never Dies", and "Where Are You Now" by Cherrill Rae; "Come In From The Rain", "One More Time", and "You Are The Music In My Life" by Rene Goodwin; and "My Dad", "Dream With Your Name On It", and "I Just Had To Hear Your Voice" by Teddi Fusco.

Tamla/Motown/Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $14.99 22.99
The complete Tamla and Motown singles of The Satintones – the soul, R&B & popular music juggernaut's first male vocal group – and a treasure trove of rare post doo wop from the end of the 50s/beginning of the 60s! It's fascinating for the history herein – the group is hugely under-anthologized in a world of myriad Motown compilations – which is a real shame, as you'll hear in this sweet set – with numbers that rely on the doo wop influences as well as tunes more devoted to lead vocals – with a slew of early Berry Gordy productions and compositions. The set includes the then legally challenged Shirelles knockoff/answer song "Tomorrow and Always" plus "Motor City", "Going To The Hop", "Sugar Daddy", "A Love That Can Never Be", "Foot Stomping Time", My Kind Of Love", "Boogie Woogie Heart", "Because I Love You", "You Can't Beat My Lovin" and many more. 26 tracks in all.

U-Nam & OthersWeekend In LA – A Tribute To George Benson ... CD
Skytown, 2012. Used ... $6.99
A nice little tribute to soul, jazz and fusion legend George Benson – and a project that's a labor of love for Benson-devotee, soulful spirit and brilliant guitarist U-Nam – with an allstar lineup that features Ronnie Foster, George Duke, Patrice Rushen, Andreas Oberg, Tim Owens, Marcus Millers and others! Benson is an artist who embraced diversity and creative evolution – and this tribute does that legacy proudly. It's rich with fusiony soul groovers that are laced with some truly impeccable guitar work. It's got some throwback swagger in spots, but it's also got some distinctly modern soul appeal – and an all around affectionate spirit. U-Nam plays guitars, keyboards and more here – on top of handling the recording and arrangements – and the guests bring their best! Includes "Weekend In LA" with Rhodes and clavinet by Ronnie Foster and vocals by Andreas Oberg, "Give Me That", "Shiver" and more with singer Tim Owens, "This Masquerade" with more great Fender Rhodes – this time by George Duke, "Hip Ship", "Before You Go/Breezin'" with Patrice Rushen, "Nature Boy" with Stokely Williams and more.

A killer batch of rare soul tracks – mostly from the 60s, and all numbers that were originally pressed up on very limited 45s for the members of London's soul-based 100 Club! Rarity aside, the tracks are all pretty darn great – very well-chosen bits of dancefloor soul, with a groove that stretches out nicely past the typical Northern vibe – proof that the 100 Club were always trying to explore fresh territory with their efforts! Many of these cuts are from unreleased master tapes from American 60s indies – pulled specially from the vaults of Ace/Kent, and issued as 45s for the club's annual birthday celebration – presented here in a package that has plenty of great grooves to offer for any fan of rare soul music. Titles include "Come Through Me" by Garland Green, "Hey Stoney Face" by Mary Love, "The Magic Touch" by Melba Moore, "Love Has Passed Me By" by Phil Terrell, "I'll Never Stop Loving You" by Carla Thomas, "This Man Wants You" by Wally Cox, "Good News" by The Hytones, "Get To Steppin" by Jackie Day, "What's One More Lie" by Milton Bennett, "Doin The Gittin Up" by The Devonnes, "Faith & Understanding" by The Magicians, and "Ain't You Glad" by Mill Evans.

The soundtrack isn't heavy-handed in any way, rather documents the recordings in a straight forward way and lets the voices and words tell their stories. It's genuinely touching stuff.

Brigade Nouveau (Germany), 2003. Used ... $8.99
The first release from a great new label – one that we'll be hearing plenty from in years to come! Brigade Nouveau is devoted to updating the sounds of the 60s – taking older bossa, mod, and groovy jams – and spinning them out with a cooler and more abstract approach, in the spirit of some of our favorite retro work on labels like Irma, Schema, and Compost! The man behind the magic is Zack Stingl, well known to us for his great ear in compiling sets of classic original easy tunes – which makes him more than the right person to head up such an effort. Titles include "Belem Minha Cidade" by Bobby Brazil, "South Of Order" by Panaman, "Place De La Concorde" by Audio Empire, "Cocktails & Candlelights" by Linda Paris, "Supernatural (short mix)" by Earl Harbour, "Papaver Orientale" by Jardin Botanico, "Natura Morte" by Osaka Soundlab, "Voce Abusou" by Luigi Ladu & Margarita Gonzalez, "Night At The Tropicana" by Dos Dynamicos, and "I Am A Legend" by Rude Rock Hunter.

Dancefloor soul, disco, boogie and otherwise club ready jams from the early 70s to mid 80s from Chicago and beyond – an excellent batch of rare grooves put together by Mr. Peabody's – a great follow up to excellent Real Sound Of Chicago compilation on BBE! As justly revered as the Chicago scene is for the pioneering club music of the 80s is, the soul and disco of the 70s years and some of boogie and other sounds that ran parallel with the house scene in the 80s too often get overlooked. We love us a soulful history lesson, but what's most important is how great the music is throughout this set – which moves a bit beyond Chicago, too! The CD version features 23 tracks on 2CDs – one disc devoted to Chicago and the other to the Beyond: with "Cancion Ritual" by Hot Pepper, "What You Got Left For Love" by Kenny Wells, "Do What You Can Do" by Spaceark, "Loves Gonna Find You" by Judy Clayton, "Lover" by Lily Fields, "Build (Pts 1 & 2)" by Kurtis Scott, "Space Disco Boogie" by Total Eclipse and "She's Hot" by Sun Sect feat Pam, "Mugged By Love (Instrumental)" by Nate Williams, "I've Got To Break Away (Instrumental)" by Vanatti, "Chega" by Clive Stevens and more.

Savannah/Doctor Bird (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
A fantastic collection of roots reggae from a lesser-known source – material issued on the Big Phil label of Phil Mathias – brought together to make a superb album as a whole! There's a nice mix of artists here, and the production styles are also nicely varied – with some numbers that still have a roots vibe, but also move into warmer lovers territory – balanced with deeper, more progressive cuts that make the whole thing an all-killer, no-filler set! Titles include "A Lonely Walk" by Albert Malawi, "Consider Yourself" by Delroy Wilson, "Black Beauty" by The Mindbenders, "Riding High" by The In Crowd, "Never Get Weary" by Wellesley Braham, "Think About Tomorrow" by Ranking Joe, "Miserable Woman" by Leroy Smart, and "Once Upon A Time" by The Main Attractions. 2CD set also features 19 bonus tracks, 6 previously unissued, including some rare 12" singles – titles that include "Help Us Jah (12" mix)" by Leroy Brown, "Why Won't You Come On (12" mix)" by Bim Sherman, "So Many Times" by The Majestrians, "Too Sweet To Let Go (12" mix)" by The Studds, "Running (12" mix)" by Devon Lyon & Jah Thomas, "Road Traffic Law (12" mix)" by Jah Ruby, and "Wise Man" by Junior Dan.

There's still plenty of dance-based rhythms in the set – and titles include "Good Girl" by Slowpho, "East On West" by Povo, "Sedpacito (Sumo dub bounce)" by Dalminjo with Malena, "Quem Vai Devolver meu Dia (Ennio styles rmx)" by A Bossa Eletrico, "Leaving This Planet (Yam Who rmx)" by Damn, "In The Carribean" by Miss Claudia & Pornorama, and "On My Balcony" by Flunk.

DIW (Japan), 1990. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Possibly the best entry in Art Ensemble Of Chicago's Dreaming Of The Masters series – as the set's devoted to the work of John Coltrane, and has a really unified feel throughout! About half the tunes are Coltrane compositions, and the rest are originals by the Art Ensemble – done with fluid, open sounds that are less a strict tribute to Coltrane, than an expression of the ideas in jazz he allowed! As you might guess, the reeds play strongly in the sound of the set – and both Joseph Jarman and Roscoe Mitchell hit some great moments on the Coltrane tunes especially – notes that are quite different than any Trane might have played, but which he would no doubt appreciate in his music. Titles include "Dreaming Of The Masters", "Impressions", "Spiritual", "Naima", "Song For Atala", and "Go Head". CD

One of the weirdest, wildest records ever issued on the Vertigo label in the 70s – and that's saying a lot, given the reputation of the legendary imprint! There's a bit of vocals on the record, but most of the energy comes from longer-form musical progressions – sometimes more rhythmic, but often times with a heavy sonic drone approach – served up in a blend of percussion, oboe, and keyboards – peppered with work on guitar, motocello, and an adapted harp! The blend is wonderful – unlike anything we can easily describe, and often making you think there's a lot more going on than just a few guys playing in the studio together – almost a vibe like some of the famous Lansdowne Series recordings in the UK. Titles include "And The Waters Opened", "Uroboros", "Syn", "Devotion", "Happy Stage", and "Samum". LP, Vinyl record album

Sadly, it's really easy to dismiss Santana, if only for his having been elevated to iconic status among hippies and classic rock lovers, in spite of the fact that he made a number of great records. This early 70s effort finds him moving in a more jazzy direction, with supple rhythms underpinning his guitar solos. There's even some outright funky moments, with the overall sound leaning towards a more spiritual vibe, no doubt the influence of collaborations with John McLaughlin and Alice Coltrane, who even helped arrange one number. Flora Purim, Leon Thomas and Joe Farrell all lend a helping hand too, with 9 tracks in all: "Welcome", "Love, Devotion & Surrender", "Samba De Sausalito", "When I Look Into Your Eyes", "Yours Is The Light", "Mother Africa","Light Of Life", "Flame Sky" and "Welcome".

The groove here is similar to some of the other tight funk groups on Liberty at the time – especially Dayton – but Xavier's groove is a bit leaner, too – very nicely turned towards a modern dancefloor with its emphasis on bass upfront in the mix, in a mode that's often nicely placed between boogie and rollerskating jams! Ayanna Little sings lead vocals with Xavier – and the set also features some wicked keyboard work from Rahni Harris – on tracks that include "What Goes Around", "Truly Devoted", "Work That Sucker To Death", and "Love Is On The One".

The package is devoted to the tiny Nickel and Penny labels, but it's also equally a set dedicated to legendary radio DJ Richard Pegue – whose work in both mainstream soul and later dusties formats really helped to shape our understanding of soul music! Pegue produced and wrote nearly every track on the set – which makes the collection one of the most unified the Numero Group has ever produced – a true tribute to Richard's great ear for a groovy soul record, and to all the smaller-name groups he helped support on the Windy City scene. The booklet does a great job of telling Pegue's story – really getting at the unique vision he brought to Chicago soul, and the wit and warmth that made him a favorite of many folks over the space of decades. The music alone is enough – stuff we've been waiting to get reissued for years – but together with the Numero research and booklet, the end result is sublime!

Rare rock from the Golden Triangle scene of Southeast TX in the late 60s and early 70s – a well-curated overview of the stylistically sprawling material being cut at Mickey Rouse's Lowland Recording Studio in Beaumont! Texas rock of the late 60s and early 70s justifiably brings to mind acts like The 13th Floor Elevators and The Bubble Puppy – tripped out psychedelia in other words, but Texas is huge, and there was a heck of a lot more going on than just the best remembered cult favorites. The music coming out of just the Beaumont, Port Arthur, Orange, Texas "triangle" chronicled here was incredibly diverse. It includes proto TX boogie rock that's a clear precursor to early ZZ Top, harmony flavored numbers that sound closer to Cali than they do The Lone Star State, one track that somehow fuses CS&N with The Beatles and does so with prominent cowbell in the mix (and it's good!!!), punchy psych grit, and swaggering country rock with some twang in the strings that feels a bit more profoundly Texan. You don't need our word that The Numero Group has devoted some serious attention to detail – with a 35-page booklet of notes, photos and histories, plus the impressive Lost In The Golden Triangle "family tree" of the regional musicians involved – as if discovering these long buried regional relics wasn't impressive enough already. Beautiful! 22 tracks in all: "Trash One" by the Lowland Studio Band, "Live My Life Today" by Insight Out, "Simple House" by Mother Lion, "Love Of The Morning" by Circus, "Take A Look At Your Friends" by Next Exit, "You Know I Love You" by Roy Briggs & Alton Tew, "Calling Me Home (Demo)" by Donald Thomas and more.

One of the best records ever by Joe Higgs! Higgs is one of classic reggae's best songwriters and one of it's most distinctive voices – having written for, performed with or simply influenced some of the biggest names in the game – but his own great records didn't really crossover to the mainstream. While he doesn't pander to the mainstream, the strength of the songs, his soulful voice and the strains of American soul that lace the roots-ish vibe here are broadly appealing to say the least. As incredible as it is important! Includes "Devotion", "One Man Kutchie", "Unity Is Power", "Love Can't Be Wrong", "Small World", "Think Of The Moment", "Sadness is A Part Of My Heart" and "Sons Of Garvey". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Morgan NixonBorn In A Car Crash – A Guide To Choice 1950s & 60s Rhythm & Blues 45s ... Book
Long Road Society, 2021. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The title's a bit mysterious, but the book is very very cool – a guide to loads of rare, raw singles – each of which gets a full page devoted to itself! The book is all color, with heavy glossy pages – and each of the rare 45s is presented with a full scan of the record, and a short essay on why the track is so great – with page after page of entries from classic labels like Chess and King, and lots more obscure entries from really tiny imprints! If you love holding a pile of rare 45s in your hands, you'll find plenty to love here – as the book features almost 250 entries that leap off the page like a piece of rare vinyl. The book is softcover, full color, and very heavily skewed to postwar blues and R&B! Book

✨✧ VariousUnissued Sixties Garage Acetates Volume 4 – I've Had Enough ... LP
Norton, Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Norton Records, the reigning deep garage rock relic hunters, have done it again – a straight up incredible batch of rugged, shambling r&b fueled, punk rock prefiguring singles from 1964-1968 – stuff that's never even been officially released! The stuff runs the gamut, from raw, but capable blue eyed interpretations of r&b, to wild instrument bashing in the most hard charging and stumbling tradition. Some of it's ultra low fi, others raw, but with a clarity that could have pushed it closer to the mainstream – totally great stuff that's gotta be fresh news to even the most devoting 60s garage enthusiasts! Titles include "I Don't Want To See You" by Blue Embers, "Jack Of All Trades" by Henchmen, "Stay Away" by Michelle's Menagerie, "Gonna Find My Way" by Jagged Edge, "Do You Love Me" me by Younger Set, and perhaps the holy grail of the entire series, "Zippered My Heart" by a group called Reign – featuring a young firebrand who goes by the name of Johnny Thunders.

✨✧ Robbie BashoSong of the Avatars – The Lost Master Tapes (5CD set) ... CD
Tompkins Square, Late 60s/Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 5CD ... Out Of Stock
Unheard music from guitar genius Robbie Basho – a selection of tracks that were never issued at the time, all rescued from Basho's archive of over 100 reel to reel tapes! Robbie gave us some groundbreaking records on Takoma, Vanguard, and Blue Thumb – which established him as one of the most important guitarists of the new acoustic generation to rise up in the 60s, alongside important contemporary John Fahey. But Basho also kept on evolving in his music before his untimely early death in 1986, even though he was often not getting the attention from labels that he deserved – which is why a package like this is so great! The tapes were a bit murky on details – but the tracks appear to include some work from the late 60s, contemporaneous with Basho's early recordings for Takoma – but they also move well into the later years, at a time when Robbie's spiritualism was rising even more, through his devotion to Sufism. There are many vocal passages on the set, done in that surprisingly majestic mode that Basho had in the later years – a more well-developed style than his early singing – and the set, of course, features countless moments of sublime work on 12 string guitar. 5CD set features 54 tracks in all – and a 48 page booklet of notes, essays, and photos.

✨✧ Alexis KornerComplete Warner Brothers Recordings (Bootleg Him/Accidentally Borne In New Orleans) ... CD
Warner/Wounded Bird, Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A pair of early 70s albums from the mighty Alexis Korner – back to back in a single set! First up is Bootleg Him – a record with a strange mix of elements on the outside – a confusing title, a proggy-cover image – but one that's got a sound that's a perfect maturation of the fantastic sound of Alexis Korner in the 60s! Korner's one of the overlooked heroes in British music – a strong devotee of American blues, and maybe so much so that sounds more like his inspirations than most – but never in a slavish way, as Alexis is always able to full absorb the sound, and make you feel like it's coming from his own deep soul – and over the years, he really shifted things in these slight, but powerful ways – making his music a huge influence on a big generation of UK rock acts to come. Here, the double-length set is almost a "thanks back" affair – as Korner records with a huge all-star array that includes folks like Robert Plant, Jack Bruce, Charlie Watts, Ginger Baker, Graham Bond, Lol Coxhill, Dick Heckstall-Smith, Ray Warleigh, Harry Beckett, and many more – a fantastic crossroads of all that's hip in British rock, blues, and jazz at the start of the 70s. Titles include "I Got A Woman", "Rockin", "She Foold Me", "I Wonder Who", "Dee", "Love Is Gonna Go", "Clay House Inn", "Evil Hearted Woman", "Mighty Mighty", "Sunrise", and "Hellhound On My Tail". Accidentally Borne In New Orleans (title correct, by the way!) is a record that really has Alexis Korner stretching out from the straighter blues of his 60s material – using his fantastic style on a set of tunes that show as much New Orleans influence as you might guess from the title – but also an evolved British roots rock quality too! The group is very interesting – relatively lean, and with loads of saxophone solos from Mel Collins – the reedman who made some early 70s King Crimson albums so great – plus second guitar from Peter Thorup, who also adds a bit of slide, and makes for a strongly guitar-based groove amidst some of the slightly funky rhythms. Titles include "Gospel Ship", "Lo & Behold", "County Shoes", "Don't Change On Me", "Rock Me", and "Sweet Sympathy". CD

✨✧ VariousKeeping The Faith Vols 1 & 2 – 28 Stompin Northern Soul Classics & 21 Modern Soul Classics ... CD
Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
An excellent collection of rare soul groovers – one of those UK packages that are put together as a memory of their own great Northern Soul scene, but which has equal appeal to any fan of rare and unusual American soul! The set list is great – and there's maybe a nicely wider range of styles here than on the kind of Northern Soul sets that follow in a stricter Detroit-inspired style – as there's echoes of funk, some key 70s numbers, and even a few British tracks that sit wonderfully next to the US songs. The set's divided up into two modes – CD1 features 28 60s Northern Soul tracks, and CD2 features 21 numbers from the 70s – titles that include "Bok To Bach" by Father's Angels, "You Baby" by Jackie Trent, "Pick Up My Toys & Go Home" by The Devonnes, "Baby You've Got Me" by The Sapphires, "When Love Slips Away" by Margo & The Marvettes, "That's What Mama Say" by Leonard Whiting, "Check It Baby" by Willie & The Mighty Magnificents, "Stop What You're Doing" by The Playthings, "Ain't No Soul Left In These Ol Shoes" by Kenny Bernard, "Ain't Nothin But A Houseparty" by The Show Stoppers, "Gonna Fix You Good" by Alan Bown Set, "The Real Thing" by Kim Davis, "Ton Of Dynamite" by Frankie Crocker, "Beautiful Summers Day" by Mother Freedom Band, "Dreaming A Dream" by Crown Heights Affair, "On The Real Side" by Larry Saunders, "Something Fishy Is Going On" by Universal Mind, "Forget That Girl" by Jeannie Napoli, "I Got The Need" by The Moments, "My Man Is On The Way" by Rhetta Young, "Beautiful Woman" by Derek Martin, "It Really Hurts Me Girl" by The Carstairs, "I Want To Give You My Everything" by Carl Douglas, "Country Girl" by Soul Train Gang, "Gee Baby" by The Festivals, "You're My One Weakness Girl" by Street People, "In The Bottle" by Brother To Brother, and "I Wanna Give You Tomorrow" by Benny Troy.

✨✧ VariousRubadub Revolution – Early Dancehall Productions From Bunny Lee ... LP
Pressure Sounds (UK), Early 80s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
Sweet early 80s tracks from the legendary Bunny Striker Lee – work that shows him stepping effortlessly into the dancehall modes of the time – still a master of rhythm, and of finding the right sort of talents to add to his sound! The package features a nice mix of bigger names and up-and-coming talents – and also includes a number of unissued tracks from Bunny's archives, which fit perfectly alongside the singles in the set – music that's mostly in a late roots-into-dancehall mode, instead of some of the bigger, more commercial work that would circulate under the dancehall name a few years later. As always with Pressure Sounds, the presentation, sound quality, and notes are great – and titles include "Gun Fever" by Frankie Jones, "People Cruel (12" mix)" by Cornell Campbell & Errol Scorcher, "Lay Down Flat" by Devon Edwards, "Revolution Fighters" by Simple Simon, "Too Popular" by Trevor Castell, "Babylon No Badda Haul & Pull Me" by Devon Edwards, "A Place Called Zion" by The Paragons, "The Right Time (12" mix)" by Neville Brown & John Wayne, "Bandulo (12" mix)" by Cornell Campbell & Scientist, "Know Yourself Mankind" by The Paragons, "Lazer Beam (12" mix)" by Don Carlos & Papa Tullo, and "I Man Come Again" by Johnny Clarke.

✨✧ VariousTurn Off The Lights – Sweet Soul Music ... CD
Essential, Late 60s/Early 70s/2020. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A nice little set that delivers exactly what's promised in the title – sweet soul music from back in the day, plus a few tracks from the contemporary Philly scene! The cuts here nicely move between styles – many are the warm harmony cuts that were the calling card of Philly and New Jersey at the start of the 70s – and the rhythms here move from completely mellow to midtempo – that shift in harmony soul towards the club that was so influential from some of these artists at the time. Tracks include "Me & My Gemini" by First Class, "Carla My Love" by Softones, "Together" by Tony Strong & The Philly Soul, "Babies Having Babies" by Terry Tate, "Sure Thing" by New Birth, "Hypnotized" by Linda Jones, "My Ebony Princess" by Jimmy Briscoe & The Little Beavers, "Special Lady" by Ray Goodman & Brown, "Natural High" by Captain Sky, "Reunited" by Johnny Ingram with Sherena Khan, "You Know How To Make Me Feel So Good" by Glenn Leonard with Jean Carne, "Didn't Anyone Ever Tell You I Love You" by Philly Devotions, "Yes I'm Ready" by Barbara Mason, "A Lover's Stand" by Norma Jenkins & The Dolls, and "Your Love Is So Doggone Good" by The Whispers.
