DevoDuty Now For The Future (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Warner/Rhino, 1979. New Copy ... About October 30, 2020
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 squeeling 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

DevoOh, No! It's Devo ... LP
Warner, 1982. Very Good+ ... $19.99
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".

DevoQ: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo! (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Warner/Rhino, 1978. New Copy (reissue)... On October 30, 2020
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

A nice little soul group from Chicago – and one who work in the sort of legacy that makes us mighty proud to be a part of the Windy City! Most of the tracks here are original, but the group also do a nice version of one of our favorite tunes by Leroy Hutson – and it's clear that there's a nice Hutson/Curtom inspiration in the music, but one that's stripped-down a bit more than in the commercial studios of the 70s – more homegrown, and set to the very down to earth vocals of Mathew Aijarapu. Titles include a remake of Hutson's "So In Love With You" – plus "Blood Red Blues", "Ain't That A Man For You", "Long Goodbye", "Think I'm Falling In Love", "Green Light", and "Come Back". CD

Dave DouglasDevotion ... CD
Greenleaf, 2019. Used ... $8.99
A pretty dynamic little album from trumpeter Dave Douglas – but maybe one that comes as no surprise, given that the trio features piano from Uri Caine and drums from Andrew Cyrille! In a stretch where Dave's given us some great albums with higher concepts and different ideas, this one comes in like a bullet to really get things back to basics – reminding us that in the right sort of setting, Douglas can be an incredibly powerful, incredibly free-voiced musician – especially when driven on by forces as great as Caine's piano and the drums and percussion of Cyrille! Uri is pretty wonderful, too – and again, the set's a great reminder of what he can do when he's set loose, and maybe in a less structured setting – or maybe it's just the always-amazing work of Cyrille that's got both of the other musicians really upping their game. Titles include "D'Andrea", "Francis Of Anthony", "Prefontaine", "Rose & Thorn", "We Pray", "Devotion", "False Allegiances", "Pacific", and "Curly". CD

Domino, 2020. New Copy ... $12.99 13.99
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".

A&M/Robinsongs (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
4 classic records from LTD on 2CDs! Something To Love is a great little groover with arrangements by Philly Soul maestro Bobby Martin – who mixes together funk, club grooves, and smooth soul. Jeffrey Osborne's vocals really shine on this one, too! Osborne's emerging strongly in the mellow soul mode on Togetherness, too – especially on the album's two great ballad cuts, "Concentrate On You" and "We Both Deserve Each Other". Devotion is one of LTD's biggest from the 70s – a sweet mix of mellow soul and boogie. Shine On features more solid boogie sounds – with the group still grooving beautifully in their best late 70s mode at the cusp of the next decade! 37 tracks on a 2CD set that compiles their last few years of the 70s! "Back In Love Again", "Stay With Me", "We Party Hearty", "Material Things", "Age Of The Showdown", "Stranger", "Share My Love", "Say That You'll Be Mine", "One On One", and "Dance N Sing N", "You Gave Me Love", "Lovers Everywhere", "Holding On", "Jam", "Don't Stop Loving Me Now", and "Let's All Live & Give Together", "Don'tcha Know", "Shine On", "Where Did We Go Wrong", "Getaway", "Lady Love" and more.

Charles Packy Axton & OthersLate Late Party ... CD
Light In The Attic, Late 60s. New Copy ... $6.99 16.99
One of the greatest and most historically important compilations ever put together by our friends at Light In The Attic – the first ever (!!!) anthology devoted to Stax sax great Charles "Packy" Axton! Packy was a founding member of the Mar-Keys and a cat who played with the best of them – Steve Cropper, Booker T, Teenie Hodges, Donald "Duck" Dunn and many more – all of whom can be heard on this mindblowing set of benchmark vocal and instrumental singles from the mid 60s – truly the blueprint material for the great Stax and all around Memphis soul to come! It features singles cut for labels such as USA, Bar, Hollywood and Pure Soul – soul/R&B vocal numbers and proto-funky instrumentals. Amazing, amazing stuff recorded at Royal and Ardent Studios with some of the greatest soul music players to ever come together – so highly recommended! Includes "Holiday Cheer", "Bullseye", "Hung Over", "I'll Always Love" and "Late Late Party" by The Martinis, "No Ending" and "No Love Have I" by Stacy Lane, "House Full Of Rooms", "Out Of Control" and "I'm A Fool (In Love)" by LH & The Memphis Sounds, "Stone Fox", "Hip Pocket" and "Greasy Pumpkin" by The Pac-Keys, and "Hole In The Wall" by The Packers. 17 tracks in all – treated beautifully by team LITA – with a thick booklet of notes (by Andria Lisle) and full of vintage photos of the players, shots of the inner labels of the original singles, details for each track and more.

Gearbox (UK), 2019. New Copy ... $15.99
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. Titles include "Jabula", "Tuangu Guru", "ZB2", "Dreamtime", "Nisa", "Tonegawa", and "Devotion". CD

Alexis KornerComplete Warner Brothers Recordings (Bootleg Him/Accidentally Borne In New Orleans) ... CD
Warner/Wounded Bird, Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $8.99 19.99
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

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. Titles include "Blues In The Night", "Miss You", "Rough Ridin", "All Alone", "The Song Is You", "Undecided", and "I'll Be Seeing You". LP, Vinyl record album

Oliver NelsonKennedy Dream – A Musical Tribute To John F Kennedy ... LP
Impulse, 1964. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $11.99
A great little album – a lot better than you might think from the concept! After the death of JFK, Oliver Nelson penned this extremely strong tribute to the man – featuring snippets of speeches made by Kennedy during his time in office as president, used as bridges between jazz based backings by Nelson that are filled with some of his strongest writing of the time. The notes are more devoted to Kennedy's memory and Nelson's genius than the usual liner notes – so we're not sure who the players are – but the overall style is right up there with some of Nelson's best serious work from the time, and features a striking use of strings against jazz solo instrumentation, almost in a manner that recalls Ralph Burns' best styles of the 50s. Titles include "The Artists Rightful Place", "Jacqueline", "Day In Dallas", "Let The Word Go Forth", and "John Kennedy Memory Waltz". LP, Vinyl record album

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 ... Just Sold Out!
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".

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.

SantanaWelcome ... LP
Columbia, 1973. Very Good Gatefold ... $6.99
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".

SatintonesSatintones Sing! – The Complete Tamla & Motown Singles (limited edition) ... CD
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.

The Shaggs story of a young girl group and their dad manager dreaming big and hoping for stardom, but the stunningly primitive sound actually makes the patron saints of outsider art rock and indie rock to come – it's messy and amazing to this day!

Dinah ShoreBouquet Of Blues ... LP
RCA, 1956. Very Good ... $3.99
Dinah Shore's definitely got a bouquet of blues here – thanks to some backings that echo the moody, late nite image on the cover! The set's one of Shore's most blue-hued ever – a surprisingly beautiful little record that features orchestrations from Henri Rene, Frank DeVol, and Harry Zimmerman – all with styles that slightly echo older eras of jazz, but which never get too hokey, or resort to any easy cliches. In a way, there's almost a sharper modern edge going on amidst some of the more traditional modes – and Shore's vocals are a bit part of that, thanks to a wonderful recording style that has them right up front in the mix, coming across with incredible clarity. Titles include "Bouquet Of Blues", "Moanin Low", "Lonesome Gal", "Blues In The Night", "Born To Be Blue", "Memphis Blues", "What Can I Say After I'm Sorry", and "I Got It Bad & That Ain't Good". LP, Vinyl record album

Frank Sinatra/Phil Spector/Elvis Presley/Bing Crosby/Ella FitzgeraldChristmas Tale – Timeless Classic Albums (Jolly Christmas/Christmas Gift To You/Christmas Album/Merry Christmas/Swinging Christmas) (5CD set) ... CD
Vinylogy (UK), 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 5CD ... $12.99
A great set of Christmas classics – five albums, each represented with LP-styled artwork in a box of 5 CDs! First up is Jolly Christmas by Frank Sinatra – one of the greatest Christmas albums of the 20th century – a rich tapestry of sadness and longing from Ol' Blue Eyes himself! Sure, most folks think that Christmas albums are supposed to be cheery and celebratory – but Frank, coming off of his best Wee Small Hours years at Capitol, rightly chose the sadder side of Christmas – and put together an album full of songs that really get at the bluer side of the holiday. Side one of the set includes some tremendous secular songs – the kind of mid-century tunes that often had a dark undercurrent of separation and unfulfilled desire – masquerading as holiday tunes, but in Frank's hands, coming off more like smokey late night tunes of lost love and wasted life. Side two's got some more spiritual-oriented tunes – but again, done by Frank, with arrangements by Gordon Jenkins, these tunes come off with a lot less celebratory spirit than you'd expect. Titles include "The Christmas Waltz", "Mistletoe & Holly", "The Christmas Song", "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas", "It Came Upon A Midnight Clear", and "I'll Be Home For Christmas". Next is A Christmas Gift To You – Phil Spector's classic Christmas album – a swirling delight of 60s pop and soul numbers, still one of the greatest full Christmas LPs ever recorded! The whole thing is wonderful – a mix of soul, rock, and pop – all produced with that classic "wall of sound" style that made Phil Spector such an early production genius in the 60s! The music is from those magical times when boundary-busting art and craft were mixed perfectly with pop styles that anyone could instantly fall in love with – and titles include "Frosty The Snowman" by The Ronettes, "Here Comes Santa Claus" by Bob B Soxx & The Blue Jeans, "Marshmallow World" by Darlene Love, "Sleigh Ride" by The Ronnettes, "Winter Wonderland" by Darlene Love, "Santa Claus Is Comin To Town" by The Crystals, and "Silent Night" by Phil and other artists on the set! Next is Elvis Christmas Album – an early Holiday gem from Elvis Presley – a set that had RCA Records wisely rushing the young singer into the studio to cut a host of Christmas tunes – which ensured that Elvis would be spinning on the turntable for many seasons to come! Titles include "Here Comes Santa Claus", "Silent Night", "Blue Christmas", "White Christmas", and "Santa Bring My Baby Back". Next is Merry Christmas from Bing Crosby – which may well be THE Christmas album of the 20th century – a 50s issue of 40s singles cut by Der Bingle, packaged in a cover with a classic cover image that's ensured that the record stayed in print for dozens of Decembers in years to come! Given that Bing virtually owned Christmas on TV during the 50s, 60s, and 70s, the album's place in popular music is well-earned – and honestly, Bing's "aw shucks, I'm just reg'lar folks" sort of approach to these tunes really helped create a kind of common man secular side to the Holidays that forever transformed America's celebration of the season. Or maybe we're going to far with this one . . . But whatever the case, the album's a standard, and one we were certainly raised on. Titles include "Silver Bells", "Jingle Bells", "Silent Night", "White Christmas", "Adeste Fideles", "Faith Of Our Fathers", "I'll Be Home For Christmas", and "It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas". Last up is Ella Fitzgerald Wishes You A Swinging Christmas – a wonderful Holiday album that's stayed fresh for years! Ella's got a perfect style to interpret these numbers – working with Frank DeVol and Russ Garcia in a set of lightly jazzy versions of Christmas favorites like "Sleigh Ride", "Jingle Bells", "Winter Wonderland", "White Christmas", "Frosty The Snowman", and one of the best versions of "What Are You Doing New Years Eve" ever recorded!

Jive, 1989. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $28.99 29.98
One of THE landmark hip hop albums – and the full length debut of great Tribe Called Quest! We hardly need to tell you about this classic – but it will always bear repeating. De La Soul might have kicked the door open on leftfield, anything goes artistry about a year or so earlier, but their friends and fellow Native Tongues Tribe's debut was a crucial reminder that the east coast was spinning out of one of the greatest creative growth spurts in hip hop history at the time. Pure excellence. Tracks include "Luck Of Lucien", "Footprints", "I Left My Wallet In El Segundo", "Bonita Applebaum", "Can I Kick It?", "Rhythm (Devoted To The Art Of Moving Butts)", "Mr Muhammad", "Description Of A Fool" andmore seminal, jazzy middle school tracks!

An uncommonly soul-steeped hip hop soul soundtrack and musical companion piece to the documentary 16 Bars – spearheaded by Speech from Arrested Development, in which he visited and recorded with incarcerated singers and rappers finding hope in a prison rehabilitation program. 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.

The set's the 7th in their series devoted to the Buzzsaw Joint club in London – and like the rest, it has DJs on the scene pull together some of their favorite gems – which, in this case, makes for a nice batch of 16 rare singles that include "Look At Your Girl" by Googie Rene, "Shout Mama Linda" by The Cymbals, "Don't You Know I Care" by The Sevilles, "Sweeney's Twist" by Billy Martin & His Corvairs, "Q Bop She Bop" by The Dells, "Hop Skip & Jump" by The Opals, "Twistin" by Les Cooper & His Soul Rockers, "Fat Man Twist" by The Royal Dukes, "Pretty Woman" by Curtis Byrd, "Dance On Little Girl" by Dee Clark, and "Twist Off" by an Uncredited Artist.

VariousEccentric Soul – The Nickel & Penny Labels ... CD
Numero, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $7.99 18.98
A long-overdue collection – and a rich document of one of our favorite sides of the Chicago soul scene! 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! Titles include "Just Say The Word" by Jerry Townes, "Fall In Love Again" by The Voices, "Never More" by Little Ben & The Cheers, "Why Do You Want To Make Me Sad" by The Norvells, "Instrumental 1" by Richard Terry & Company, "Shadows" by South Shore Commission, "This Is The Woman" by Sidney Pinchback, "The Ember Song" by Sidney Barnes, "Sign Of The Zodiac" by South Suburban Electric Strings, "This Love Of Mine" by Extensions, "Forever Is A Long Long Time" by The Voices, "Do The Pearl Girl (part 2)" by The Matta Baby, "I've Got To Find A Way" by Hallelujah Chorus, "First Thing I Do In The Morning" by Joyce Williams, and "I'm Gonna Get Even With You" by Little Ben & The Cheers.

Tompkins Square, Mid 40s/1950s/1960s/1970s/1980s/1990s/2000s. Used 3 CDs ... $29.99
Gloriously soulful and passionate postwar gospel – one of the best ever compilations on the Tompkins Square label – shining a powerful light on rare African American church recordings, street corner sermon style numbers, choir backed testifying soul & blues, and straight up wonderful spiritual soul music all the way! The tunes range from the mid-to-late 1940s through the 1970s for the most part, with a few later recordings – and part of what's so inspiring about it is the disregard of formality to the program. It has crackly field recordings of congregations, reverends and choirs, back porch gospel blues, and more polished, but no less passionate recordings – the common thread being the raw, honest devotion and deeply felt soulfulness of it. Hats off to producer, compiler Mike McGonigal for putting together such an excellent set, and for his concise, but well done notes on each track, and to Tompkins Square for continuing to raise the bar! 80 tracks on 3 discs: "Peace In The Valley" by Rev Lonnie Farris, "Rock And Roll Sermon" by Elder Beck, "So Glad" by Rev Robert Ballinger, "Wasn't That A Mystery" by Madison County Senior Center Singers, "The Wicked Shall Cease From Troubling" by Nathaniel Rivers, "Jesus' Blood" by Golden Stars Of Greenwood, SC, "God's Mighty Hand" by Rev Utah Smith, "Fire Shed In My Bones" by Boyd Rivers, "Power Is In The Heart OF Man" by Brother & Sister W B Grate, "You Ought To Been There" by The BC Harmonizers, "Go Devil Go" by Madam Ira May Littlejohn and more.

A sensational sequel to one of the greatest compilations of rare rhythm & blues we've seen from the deep diggin' Jazzman label – one that goes even deeper than the first! A good deal of these juke box treasures are from the mid 50s to early 60s – all of 'em ones that have been overlooked since way back in the day, having escaped the attention of all but the most devoted collectors for decades! Jumping R&B is the core sound here, but this volume is actually a more diverse batch than its predecessor – with some grittier proto-rock R&B, some more swinging jazz numbers, and a bit of popcorn soul as well – all of 'em killer! Titles include "Lament" by Mamie Perry, "If You Ain't Got No Bread", "Tears Baby" by Johnny West, "Rock A While" by Dewey Guy & The Fabulous Six, "Cat Music" by Dave Bartholomew, "I Done Done It" by Amos Milburn, "Swingin'" by Saunders King., "Big Game Hunter" by Steve Gibson The Red Caps, "Cleopatra" by The Mark VI, "I'll Get You, Too" by Billy Emerson, "That Ain' The Way To Do It" by Big Sis Andrews, "I'll Walk A Mile" by Bob Marriott & The Continentals, and "It Only Hurts A Little While" by Little Willie John.

Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99 19.99
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.

VariousLocal Customs – Lone Star Lowlands (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Numero, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $16.99 23.98
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 large 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! 28 tracks on the 2LP version...6 more than on the CD! "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, plus the LP only tracks "Lizard" by Lowland Studio Band, "Let Me Listen" by Sage, "Groundhog Day" by Boot Hill 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.

VariousShake What You Brought! – Soul Treasures From The SSS International Label (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
SSS/Sundazed, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $23.99 24.99
Southern soul killers from one of the most overlooked labels in the business – Nashville's mighty SSS International, home to as much great work in the late 60s as most labels from Memphis or Muscle Shoals! SSS was headed up by producer Shelby Singleton – who had a great ear for up-and-coming music, and used the imprint as a venue for some of the less-discovered southern soul acts that were burning up the scene in the shadows of the bigger-name acts cracking the charts at the end of the 60s. There's an approach here that brings together the best sounds from all scenes in the south – partly because Singleton's experience as producer really got him out and around the industry, but also because the label released work cut in other studios from different cities. This 20 track set is one of the first we've seen devoted to the full depth of the label's catalog – all gems recorded within a short 4 year span, but of surprisingly high quality throughout! Titles include "Natural Soul Brother" by Danny White, "Soul Butter" by Johnny Barfield & The Men Of SOUL, "I Wanta Make Her Love Me Till The Cows Come Home" by Jake Porter, "Shake What You Brought With You (part 1)" by Mr Jamo, "There's A Break In The Road" by Betty Harris, "Lonely For You Baby" by Sam Dees, "Proud Woman" by Johnny Adams, and "Soul Ranger" by Clifford Curry.

Finders Keepers (UK), 1950s/1960s/1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $26.99
A fantastic assortment of forward-thinking sounds – music that comes from some of the farthest corners of the postwar experimental underground – and which was all famously cited by the group Nurse With Wound as a big influence on their earliest albums! That reference aside, though, the collection is more than mindblowing enough, even if you're not a devotee of NWW – because the package offers this amazing criss-crossing of styles and sources – work from territories that lie far beyond easy categorization or reference, with some especially unusual work from the oft-overlooked French scene of the 60s and 70s! You'll hear bits of noise, slices of improvisation, occasional electronics, and lots more – in modes that skew towards the instrumental, with selections that include "Cecile" by Jacques Thollot, "Warinobaril" by Lard Free, "Fille De L'Ombre" by Dashiell Hedayat, "Frayeur" by Horrific Child, "Triptik 2" by Jean Guerin, "Generique (Theme De Myriam)" by Pierre Henry, "Sarcelles C'Est L'Avenir" by Red Noise, "Solo Un Dia" by ZNR, "Captain Tarthopom" by Jean Cohen Solal, "Les Enfants Saugaves" by Mahjun, and "La Plage" by Philippe Besombes.

Acid Jazz (UK), 1992. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the best funk records to ever come out of England! Corduroy later devolved into a rock-ish kind of group – but on this debut album, they were a tight funky combo, with an organ and clavinet mod sound that still holds up damn well over the years. Their songwriting is great, and the groove on the set push way past the stock acid jazz riffing of the early 90s. Best example of this is "Skirt Alert", a cut that begins with an amazing drum break, then grooves into a Brazilian-inflected funk number, in the manner of Earth Wind & Fire's use of the idiom. Other tracks include "Chowdown", "How To Steal The World", "Electric Soup", "Money Is", and "Six Plus One". CD

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!

Shepp's actually right at home in this setting, and his "out" background really brings a new twist to a traditional understanding of Bird. The rest of the group is made up of Jaki Byard, Cecil Mc Bee, and Roy Haynes. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Philip TragerNew York In The 1970s ... Book
Steidl (Germany), 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The cover's got a beautiful aerial shot of New York apartment buildings from the 70s – and the book is full of many other similar images – stunning black and white photographs of New York in the 70s, but a New York that's maybe cleaner and more evacuated than is usually shown at the time! Photographer Philip Trager is more concerned in the overall landscape than the denizens of the city, especially the buildings – and the book is a fantastic compendium of full buildings, storefronts, and citytop landscapes – most devoid of any sense of human life, and often with a feel that makes us think that Trager must have been getting up pretty early in the morning to shoot this version of 1970s New York! Lavishly done, in the best Steidl way – oversize, 110 pages, with black and white photographs throughout. Book

✨✧ VariousEccentric Soul – Sitting In The Park (with bonus download) ... LP
Numero, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful tribute to a legendary Chicago soul historian – the late Bob Abrahamian, well-remembered as a completely devoted soul music collector, DJ, and one-man archive who spent the late years of his life trying to uncover lost corners of the Windy City soul scene of the 60s and 70s! Bob's specialty was Chicago groups, and this set is overflowing with rare harmony soul that most of us would never have heard otherwise – the kind of obscure cuts that Abrahamian played on his famous radio show on WHPK (also the alma mater of Dusty Groove, too) – and presented beautifully here by the folks at Numero, on one of the best collections they've given us in years! The notes not only present Bob's story, but also feature bits of interviews he did with obscure Chicago soul artists, alongside photos and other notes too – to support a stunning selection of harmony soul cuts that include "How Could You Love Him" by Shades Of Brown, "Hard To Know" by Oneness, "A Fool Like Me" by Enchanters, "Reach For The Truth" by Puzzle People, "The Girl In The Window" by The Mist, "Second Story Man" by Chocolate Sunday, "Let Love Come In" by Cliff Curry, "Southside Chicago" by Otis Brown & The Delights, "Moaning & Crying" by The Dontells, "So I Can Make This Change" by Krash Band, and "It Ain't Fair (part 1)" by Ahead Of Our Time.

✨✧ VariousLocal Customs – Lone Star Lowlands ... CD
Numero, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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.

✨✧ 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.

✨✧ Gokcen KaynatanGokcen Kaynatan ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), Late 60s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
You may not be able to say his name that easily, but you'll definitely be singing the praises of Gokcen Kaynatan after you hear this groovy little record – a totally amazing bit of moogy electronics recorded on the Turkish scene in the 60s and 70s! There's plenty of guitar in the mix, too – but the real charm comes from the bubbling, percolated electronics – which seem to include some tape tricks along with the analogue synthesizer, and also some great drum machine rhythms too – but all in the best early chunky 70s modes, and not the later sort of 80s drum machine styles! There's only a slight hint of some of the more familiar Turkish rock styles of the period – as the songs here, while tuneful, are usually devoid of lyrics – and would most likely be more at home in the world of Perry & Kingsley than Ersen or Baris Manco. A fantastic discovery from the Finders Keepers folks – with titles that include "Lost Island", "Doganin Otesi", "Evren (unreleased ext version)", "Madimak", "Beyoglu'Nda Gezersin", and "Cennet Dunyamiz".

✨✧ Bluke (Luke Vibert & BlueRum13)Sense The Urgency ... CD
Ropeadope, 2019. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An unusual set of work from the ever-changing Luke Vibert – a collaboration with MC BlueRum13 – whose lyrics provide a great mix with Luke's beats and instrumentation on the album! All those crisp, creative elements that we love from older Vibert records are still very much in the mix – but the focus here is also different, and very fresh – and an equally great way to present the lyrics of BlueRum13 too. The set features a few guest appearances – from DJ SPS, Recyte, Ray Colom, Oz, and FACTS – and the set is divided up into sections devoted to four of the five senses – See, Touch, Hear, and Taste. Tracks include "Golden", "Wait A Minute", "Something Fresh", "Turninitup", "Slide By", "Mother Cuffint Chains", "Matter", "Yesh", "Let's Go", "Machine Gums", "Omnipotent", "Happy Daze", "Flying Mortalmovas", and "Gimme A Sign".

✨✧ Open SkyOpen Sky ... LP
PM, 1973. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
A lesser-known side of early work from the great Dave Liebman – a very hip trio that also features Frank Tusa on bass and Bob Moses on drums and kalimba! The sound is very open, very spacious, and surprisingly spiritual – more so than some of Liebman's other work, especially in later years – and it's clear that all three are definitely inspired by the freedoms of the post-Coltrane generation, and are seeking a way to stretch out and really deliver their own sort of message. Liebman sounds wonderful on wooden flute, soprano sax, tenor, clarinet, and standard flute – and titles include "Flute Piece", "Deep", "Questions", and "Devotion". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ OvationsHaving a Party ... LP
MGM, 1973. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
A slightly deeper vibe than previous work from The Ovations – but in a great way too! The set begins with the Sam Cooke remake of the title track, but after that things pick up a bit more – using more bass in the backings for a groove, and a bit more keyboards too – not exactly funky touches, but definitely a harder edge than before for The Ovations – all of which makes for a great contrast to the sweet soul vocals of lead singer Louis Williams! There's a few echoes of Hi Records at points, but never in the too-iconic style of Hi – and instead arranger Dan Greer really finds a way to carve out a unique space for the group. Titles include a number of Sam Cooke tributes – given that Williams was a big devotee – titles that include "You Send Me" and "A Change Is Gonna Come", in addition to the title track. But we dig the other titles even more – and they include "Your Love Is Like A Song To Me", "Born On A Back Street", "Touching Me", "Don't Look Back", and "I Can't Believe It's Over".

✨✧ VariousSock It To Me – Boss Reggae Rarities In The Spirit Of 1969 ... CD
Trojan (UK), 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Hard-wailing classics from a key year in the Trojan Records catalog – 1969, a time when the British company was really building a bridge to bring the music of Jamaica over to the London scene – where it would have an undeniable impact for years to come! This set features a great mix of Trojan hits and underground bubblers from the time – early reggae mixed with rocksteady and other modes – in a set of titles that include "I've Tried Before" by The Impersonators, "Israel" by The Sparkers, "My Devotion" by Tony King & The Hippy Boys, "Sexy Woman" by Hopeton Lewis & The Sexy Girls, "Shangul" by Tommy McCook & The Supersonics, "Sock It To Me" by The Gaylads, "You Promised Me Love" by Bob Andy, "Long About Now" by Lloyd Charmers & The Hippy Boys, "You Belong To My Heart" by The Demons, "You Can't Stop Me" by The Emotions, and a cover of the Isley Brothers classic "It's Your Thing" by Anonymously Yours – possibly an unknown group! CD features 25 tracks in all! CD
