✨✧ Count BasieHall Of Fame ... CD
Verve (Japan), 1956. New Copy ... $19.99
Excellent work from that wonderful 50s moment when Count Basie was really reinventing his band – stripping things down, getting nice and lean, and putting in this soulful kick to the rhythms that really helped modernize the groove! The set's a mix of arrangements from Ernie Wilkins, and a few more by Neal Hefti – both in that masterful sense of space that helped this Basie band really isolate its key soloists on record – not just the Count's fantastic lines on piano, but also work from Freddie Greene on guitar, Joe Newman and Thad Jones on trumpets, Benny Powell on trombone, Marshall Royal on alto, and both Frank Wess and Frank Foster on tenor and flute! Titles include "Big Red", "Lollypop", "Dolphin Dip", "Low Life", "Slats", "Move", and "Flute Juice". CD

Danny BrownOld ... CD
Fool's Gold, 2013. Used ... $2.99
Danny Brown steps up his game on Old – delivering on all the promise of his much-hailed previous Fool's Gold LP – and actually topping it! Danny's XXX was a mix of next-level smarts and production, balanced with knowlingly gutter dwelling rhymes – but this one is knowingly more "mature" on the vocal tip, to a degree – but don't worry, it's still Danny Brown! Once again, the production is brilliant – but with better pacing throughout, making this one of the stronger hip hop full lengths of '13. Includes production by Paul White, Rustie, SKYWLKR, A-Trak and others. Includes "(Old)", "The Return" with Freddie Gibbs, "Wonderbread", "Gremlins", "Torture", "Lonely", "Clean Up", "Red 2 Go", "Dubstep" feat Scrufizzer, "Dip", "Kush Coma" with A$ap Rocky & Zelooperz, "Smokin & Drinkin", "Break It (Go)", "Way Up Here" feat Ab-Soul, "Float On" feat Charli XCX and more.

✨✧ Anthony ColemanCatenary Oath ... LP
No Business (Lithuania), 2019. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Solo piano work from Anthony Coleman – a really wonderful side of his talents, given full exposure here on a variety of shortish tracks! The music seems to echo that way of cascading and combining tones that Coleman does so well on reeds – but mixes up occasional bursts of frenzied freedom with some more contemplative, spacious passages too – and a few straighter moments on the album's reworking of tunes by Billy Strayhorn and Duke Ellington. A really bright star in the longer catalog of Coleman's music – with titles that include "For Roscoe Mitchell", "Something To Live For", "Funeral Xylophone Music", "Catenary Oath", "For Mark Andre", and "Her Cerotic Dip".

Earl ColemanEarl Coleman & The Latin Love In ... LP
Worthy, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A Latin monster – and one of our favorite albums from the New York scene! The record is the only one we've ever seen from pianist Earl Coleman – and it's a groove-happy fiesta that's every bit Spanish Harlem at its best. Earl's piano is flowing and free, and the band grooves through tracks that dip, turn, and soar like some of the best hard-jamming numbers from Joe Cuba, Ray Barretto, or Joe Bataan from the time. Some tracks feature soulful English vocals, and the titles alone should give you the feel of the set – "Hippy Heaven", "Latin Love-In", "Banana-Loo", and "What You Gonna Do". LP, Vinyl record album

Dur Dur BandDur Dur Of Somalia – Vols 1 & 2 (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Analog Africa (Germany), 1986/1987. New Copy 2CD ... $13.99 19.99
80s sounds from the Somali scene – but served up with a lean, raw quality that feels a lot more like 70s funk overall! In a decade where some of the other scenes on the continent were using more beats, electronics, and keyboards – Dur Dur Band still keep things plenty live, and plenty loud – using these massive basslines that dip with influences from Latin and Jamaican music – while also hitting hard with a sharper funky sound on the guitar and drums, and also hitting some cool modes on the reeds that have a strong East African vibe! The production is as raw as the instrumentation – and the whole thing's got a gritty edge, even when a few moogy keyboards come into the mix. Titles include "Dab", "Ohiyee", "Yabaal", "Heelo", "Doon Baa Maraysso", "Bubba Aaka, "Aduun Hawli Kama Dhamaato", and "Keen Gardaran". CD

Evans PyramidEvans Pyramid (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Cultures Of Soul, Late 70s. Used ... $4.99
Rare grooves from Evans Pyramid – a sweet set of cosmic disco from the end of the 70s – recorded with a lean, almost spiritual vibe – quite similar to some of the great tracks reissued in the Soul Cal series! There's a definite ear for the dancefloor here – lots of upbeat rhythms, touched with sweet keyboards riffs, and layered with vocals that are almost an afterthought – yet have their own sort of message at the right moment. The group's the brainchild of Andre Evans, an artist whose huge legacy of music business work includes stints with Dyke & The Blazers, Little Anthony & The Imperials, and Tribe – as well as a host of key album sessions as well – but the sound is unlike any of those references, and has this great stripped-down late 70s club vibe throughout. The rare album is offered here with unreleased bonus tracks – and titles include "Rubber Band", "Never Gonna Leave You", "Dip Drop", "No I Won't", "Soul Petrol", "I Got A Rush For You", "Dance A Thon", and "Sugar Stop".

✨✧ Gregory Isaacs/Ossie All StarsMr Isaacs (2CD deluxe edition – Leggo Dub plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Earthquake/17 North Parade, 1977. New Copy 2CD ... Just Sold Out!
Fantastic early material from Gregory Isaacs – captured here early in his career, and working in a deep roots reggae mode – recording at Channel One with great direction from Ossie Hibbert! The set's laidback and righteous, in ways that let all the soulful qualities of Isaac's vocals still come through – but in a very different way than on his later hits! The rhythms are provided by the Revolutionaries – a perfect choice for the record – and titles include "Slave Master", "Story Book Children", "Get Ready", "Set The Captives Free", "Hand Cuff", "Storm", "Sacrifice", and "Smile". This great 2CD set features bonus material on CD1 – "The Sun Shines For Me", "Mr Know It All", "African Woman", "Thief A Man", "Love Light Burning", "My Conversation", and "Mr Brown". CD2 features the full album Leggo Dub – related dub material by the Ossie All-Stars – The Revolutionaries working with Ossie Hibbert on some wicked instrumentals that have plenty of core rhythms that never stray too far, while Hibbert makes magic with echo and other slight studio techniques! Titles include "Dubby Dubby", "Winners Dub", "Dub Down Babylon", "Ghetto Dub", "Brooklyn Style, "Leggo Dub", and "Doberman Skank". CD2 also features bonus tracks – "Jump & Pawn" by Clint Eastwood, "CB 200" by Dillinger, "War Of The Stars" by Ossie & The Revolutionaries, "Take A Dip" by Dillinger, and "Lik Her She Gone" by Big Joe.

Legends Of The Underground (Mark De Clive Lowe)Legends Of The Underground – Original Soundtrack ... CD
Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 2005. Used ... $9.99
A brilliant meeting of the minds – one that features the coming together of some of the greatest talents on the current cosmic groove scene! Legends Of The Underground is a project spearheaded by Mark De Clive-Lowe, and featuring work from Domu, Seiji, and Bembe Segue – all of whom work with Mark in a set of blistering tunes that take the London sound of the past few years to the next level! There's an intensity and focus here that remind us of 4Hero at their Two Pages best – a sense of spacey jazz mixed with modern groove – all swirling to the skies on waves of power, life, joy, and energy. Vocals often have a floating, spiritual sort of quality – and the tunes dip and bubble nicely throughout. Titles include "The Divine Room", "The Gathering (parts 1 & 2)", "The Dark Room", "Anarchite City", and "Paradise Garden". CD

The mighty Maker takes a deep dip into the catalog of the Now Again label – using that Stones Throw offshoot's rich blend of African, Brazilian, psychedelic, funk, and soul reissues to come up with some fantastic grooves of his own! The work is partly in a hip hop mode, but also has some of the wider instrumental touches you'd guess from the samples used in the sound – and tracks shift between instrumental and vocal numbers – the latter of which feature contributions from Qwel, Roc C, Bishop Lamont, Guilty Simpson, Rich Jones, Edgewize, and others. Titles include "Any Time Any Place", "Heebie Jeebies", "Love Me", "Hardcore", "The Same Sound", "Milk"< "I Just Want Happiness", "Paperback Author", and "It Feels Like Yesterday". CD

Eddie NoackPsycho – The K-Ark & All Star Recordings 1962 to 1969 ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $13.99 18.99
Some of the best-remembered work of Eddie Noack – a really unique country singer and songwriter, and one who wasn't afraid to dip into the darker corners of everyday life! The set's titled after the biggest track here – the chilling "Psycho", which is to Noack's career what "Rubber Room" was to Porter Wagoner in the late 60s – one of those really unusual, surprisingly honest country songs that showed the world that the genre had way more to offer than just broken hearts and western cliches! Noack follows that track with loads of other fantastic ones here too – full of unusual imagery and wordplay, and all put together with the great Bear Family attention to notes and overall packaging. CD features 24 tracks in all – including "Psycho", "Invisible Stripes", "Sleeping Like A Baby", "Barbara Joy", "Beer Drinkin Blues", "You Can't Keep A Good Man Down", "Prisoner Of War", "Two Bright Lights", "Two Brown Eyes", "Chaperoned By A Memory", "The Fallout", "Too Hot To Handle", "House On A Mountain", and "We Are The Lonely Ones".

Carol Pansei delivers a heck of a lot in the space of a small combo album – work on piano, violin, and flugelhorn – plus these really lovely wordless vocals that dip, turn, and glimmer around the tunes – almost in a legacy of Brazilian jazz that goes back to Flora Purim! The setting is a small combo one – just guitar, bass, and drums added to Carol's overdubbed performances – and the album has this very natural, organic flow – one that really takes us back to some of our favorite Brazilian jazz efforts from years back, particularly some of the 80s gems on the Pointer and Som Da Gente labels. Titles include "Irmandade Da Luz", "Cordao Astral", "Flor Da Vida", "Transmutacao Violeta", "Afeto", "Somos Todos Um", and "Luz De Estrela E Diamante". CD

Yabby You & BretherenDeeper Roots – Dub Plates & Rarities 1976 to 1978 ... CD
Pressure Sounds (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... $14.99 15.99
Rarities from the mighty Yabby You – with some remarkably strong, though little heard rootsy dub from Yabby and his extended brethren – including some recently discovered bits! The title Deeper Roots works on dual fronts. It's got pretty rare material, discovered by the always deep diggers at Pressure Sounds – but the material has deeper spiritual resonance, too – with a nice Rasta vibe running throughout! Yabby is joined by King Tubby, Barrington Spence, the rarely recorded Prince Pampidoo, King Manuel, The Prophets and others. Includes "Valley Of Joeasaphat" and "Joeasaphat Rock" with Smith & The Prophets, "Don't Touch I Dread" with Barington Spence", "Tutch Dub" with Prophet All Stars, "Dip Them Bedward" with Prince Pampidoo, "Dub Them Bedward" with Prophet All Stars, "Forward On The Track" with King Miguel, "Caymamas Rock" with King Miguel & The Prophets, "Cleo's Dub" with Hot City Allstars and more.

✨✧ VariousAin't It Funky Now! – Flat Out Funk From The Jazz Brotherhood ... CD
BGP (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Jazzy 45s galore – and a huge dip into the vaults of Prestige Records! This tasty set brings together 18 classics recorded in the heyday of the jazz funk years at Prestige – the late 60s and early 70s, a time when the soul jazz sounds of previous years were being forged into a leaner, meaner, harder-hitting groove. And although the LP was the growing format during these days, there was actually a heck of a lot of great work issued on 45s – still spinning strong with the jukebox crowds in the clubs and tap rooms, and still getting major play on radio stations, where the single was still king. The set features many 45 mixes of funky classics that you might know from LPs – and intersperses them with some other more obscure numbers pulled from full albums – making for an all-solid, all-funky set of tracks from one of the hippest jazz labels ever! Titles include "Fire Eater" by Rusty Bryant, "Don't Knock My Love" by Idris Muhammad, "Jungle Strut" by Gene Ammons, "Express Yourself" by Idris Muhammad, "Right On" by Boogaloo Joe Jones, "Who's Gonna Take The Weight" by Melvin Sparks, "Sing A Simple Song" by Charles Earland, "Son Of Man" by Houston Person, "Listen Here (part 1)" by Freddie McCoy, "Black Talk (part 1)" by Charles Earland, "Message From The Meters" by Leon Spencer, "Reelin With The Feeling" by Charles Kynard, "I Want You Back" by Harold Mabern, and "Thank You (part 1)" by Melvin Sparks.

Cosmic Sounds (UK), 2002. Used ... $6.99
Funky tunes from the Yugoslavian underground – with a good bit of jazz thrown into the mix! Cosmic Sound's second dip into the Belgrade scene is even richer than the first – showing an array of under-discovered artists with talents that run far past the usual sample and program mode. Many of these tunes are steeped in the 70s modal and fusion jazz styles that inform the reissue work on Cosmic Sounds – and although there's a lot of different artists on the set, there's a warm cohesiveness to the material that makes the compilation instantly captivating. Titles include "Junky Hooker" by Nova Express, "That's What You Do" by Mint, "Soul Music" by Tubachin, "Fiddler" by Magic Disco Tasters, "29th Madness" by Robot, "There Is Always Someone" by Bgyss, "IR Night Vision Goggles" by Teget, and "The Bull Is Dead" by Zeljko Kerleta.

Boddie/Numero, 1960s/1970s. New Copy 3CD ... $26.99 50.00
One of the coolest sets the Numero Group has ever released – and that's saying a heck of a lot, given their already-mighty catalog! Although the label issued a previous dip into the enigmatic Boddie Recording company of Cleveland, this massive package brings together a whopping 57 tracks from the Boddie studios and related labels – many of which have never been reissued before, even by Numero – and all of which offer up a mindblowing microcosm of the American scene in the 60s and 70s – a wealth of rare funk, soul, psych, gospel, and more – all of it the kind of gritty material that 45 collectors die for! But just as cool as the music is the box itself – a slipcover that fits around a hardcover book, which contains individual pockets with CDs that focus on the core labels from Boddie – then other pull outs that include a big booklet on the studios, another on the artists, and a third set of bonus inserts! Musically, the whole thing's right on par with other Numero releases – maybe even above them, given the wide range and depth of the collection – and artists include Bo & The Metros, Inter Circle, King James Version, Ricky Hodges, Jackie Russell, Angela Alexander, Frankie Pighee, Chantells, AC Jones, Harvey Hall, Headlines, Modern Detergents, Penny North, JC Akins, Little Anthony Mitchell, Gospel Fabulators, Royal Kings, Corinthian Singers, Brother Bill, Victory 5, and many more.

A fantastic double-dip into the mighty catalog of Flying Dutchman Records – one of the hippest early 70s imprints in the worlds of jazz, soul, and funk! The blend of music here is great – as the collection features some key cuts by the bigger names on the label, plus some overlooked gems that really get at the all-great spirit of their recordings – pulled together with a vibe that matches the upbeat, positive spirit of the many other entries in the Free Soul series from Japan! There's plenty of vocal cuts on the collection, but some instrumentals too – and the 2CD package features 39 tracks in all, over 160 minutes of music – with titles that include "Money Honey" by Esther Marrow, "Love Each Other" by Leon Thomas, "Soulful Strut" by Steve Allen, "Heavy Soul Slinger" by Bernard Purdie, "When You Are Who You Are" by Gil Scott-Heron, "Bridges" by Cesar 830, "The Creator Has A Master Plan" by Louis Armstrong, "A Chance For Peace" by Lonnie Liston Smith, "Head Start" by Bob Thiele Emergency, "Tite Rope" by Harold Alexander, "Nicole" by The Cyrkle, "From This Moment On" by Shelly Manne, "He Don't Appreciate It" by Esther Marrow, "Mama Soul" by Harold Alexander, "Just In Time To See The Sun" by Leon Thomas, "This Is The Me Me" by Richard Groove Holmes, "I Think I'll Call It Morning" by Gil Scott-Heron, "El Arriero" by Gato Barbieri, "Footprints" by Lonnie Liston Smith, "Gypsy Queen" by Count Basie, and "See Saw Affair" by Cesar 830.

A deep double-dip into the legendary TK Records catalog of Miami Soul – and one that offers up a very different version of the label than you might know from the hits! This 2CD set follows in the best tradition of the Free Soul series from Japan – which means that the collection is filled with unusual tracks that we might have missed otherwise, alongside other numbers that we do know, but which seem to have a really special vibe in this setting – an unpacking of the TK catalog from top to bottom, with a special focus on warmer, more unusual bits of funk and soul. Titles include "Jolie" by Lattimore, "Don't Waste My Time" by Jerry Washington, "Keep It Up" by Milton Wright, "You Knock Me Out" by Wildflower, "Cramp Your Style" by All The People, "I Can't Leave Your Love Alone" by Willie & Anthony, "Street Love" by Spats, "Concrete Jungle" by Little Beaver, "Good Good Lovin" by Charles Johnson, "90% Of Me Is You" by Vanessa Kendrick, "I Got Bills To Pay" by Johnny K, "You Can Be A Lady" by JP Robinson, "Love Is A Simple Thing" by Leon Ware, "Island Girl" by Lew Kirton, "Share Your Love" by Herman Kelly & Life, "Ain't Nothin Wrong" by KC & The Sunshine Band, "What Would Your Mama Say" by Facts Of Life, "Jazz Freak" by Paulette Reaves, "Let's Make A Baby" by Funky Brown, "The Love We Had Stays On My Mind" by Freddy Henry, and "How Long" by Brandye.

A heady dip back into the 60s – all served up by the mighty Jon Savage, who's written plenty on this pivotal time in modern music! The 2LP set is a condensation of the energy that Jon brought to his CD collections on Ace for the years 1965 through 1968 – and it focuses even more strongly on tracks that set the scene for all the changes to come – music that might sometimes seem subtle, but which had a real power to both signal coming change, and make it happen! All the tracks here are from singles – as you'd guess from the title – and tracks include "Rain" by Kak, "Train To Nowhere" by Savoy Brown, "Never Ever" by The Action, "Slim Jenkins' Place" by Booker T & The MGs, "I'm Five Years Ahead Of My Time" by The Third Bardo, "Bad Little Woman" by The Wheel A Ways, "The Other Place" by The Seeds, "Tell Me That You Love Me" by James Brown, "Agent Double O Soul" by Edwin Starr, "Too Many People" by The Leaves, "We Sell Soul" by The Spades, "Incense" by The Anglos, "That's The Way It's Got To Be" by The Poets, "Danse A La Musique" by The French Fries, "Wonderboy" by The Kinks, "Kick Out The Jams (preview pressing)" by MC5, "Hold On" by Sharon Tandy, "At The Third Stroke" by The Picadilly Line, "Sock It To Em JB (part 2)" by Rex Garvin & The Mighty Cravers, and "Help Me Get The Feeling (part 1)" by Ray Sharpe with the King Curtis Orchestra.

Planet Mod is a pretty groovy place – a spot in the solar system where rock, blues, and soul effortlessly blend together – thanks to the mighty talents of the legendary producer Shel Talmy! The set here is a great dip into the farther reaches of Talmy's records of the 60s – way past the hits, to show the kind of magic that really made the studio genius such a key force in developing the sound of London at the time – often with a fair bit of influence from America, but in a way that was already shifting into fresh British modes for the new audiences overseas. As always with Ace, the package and presentation are stunning – and the set even features some rare tracks that truly come from the vaults, mixed with other obscure singles, and supported with a great deal of notes. 24 tracks in all – and titles include "Mai Lee" by John Lee Hooker, "Don't Let It Be" by The Tribe, "Goodbye Girl" by The Preachers, "Goodbye So Long" by The Soul Brothers, "Broken Truth" by A Wild Uncertainty, "Life's Too Good To Waste" by Tony Christie & The Trackers, "Stone Crazy" by Screamin Jay Hawkins, "Too Much Of A Woman" by The Corduroys, "Have You Ever Had The Blues (alt take)" by Ray Gates, "I'll Never Fall In Love Again" by John Lee's Groundhogs, "Unto Us (demo version)" by The New Breed, and "Think" by The Total.

VariousShel's Girls – From The Planet Records Vaults ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $7.99 18.99
Producer Shel Talmy is maybe best known for his work behind some of the bigger rock artists on the UK scene of the 60s – but he also really had a great way with a gal singer too – as you'll hear in this killer collection of female pop singles from the time! The tunes here groove like the best from big names like Sandie Shaw, Dusty Springfield, or Cilla Black – with a similar focus of strong lead singer amidst some very groovy arrangements – but the songs are much more obscure overall, and stand strongly as a rich dip into the world of female British pop of the 60s, even if you don't care at all about Shel's legacy! Fortunately, we're huge fans of both – and completely adore this well-done collection – which has two dozen tracks we never would have heard otherwise, along with very detailed notes and plenty of images of the ladies within. Titles include a great version of the Brian Wilson tune "Guess I'm Dumb" by Dani Sheridan – plus "No More Love" by Liz Shelly, "Gotta Get Away" by Van Lenton, "Cruel Way To Be" by Debbie Sharron, "Surrender" by Perpetual Langley, "A Strange World" by Stevie Holly, "Stay At Home" by The Orchids, "This Heart Is Not For Sale" by Margo & The Marvettes, "Tar & Cement" by Liz Shelly, A Shoulder To Cry On" by Christine Holmes, and "A Ladies Man (alt version)" by Colette & The Bandits.

VariousSpiritual Jazz Vol 10 – Modal, Esoteric, & Deep Jazz From Prestige Records ... CD
Jazzman (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $14.99
A really loving look at a sometimes-forgotten side of the Prestige Records label – a company that's famous for giving the world plenty of hardbop and soul jazz in the 50s and 60s, but which also helped lay the groundwork for American spiritual jazz to come! Long before Impulse, Strata East, MPS, and other labels were working with the music – and even long before Coltrane first started to soar into the cosmos – Prestige was letting its musicians really experiment with unusual rhythms, extended solos, and even some non-Western instrumentation – which resulted in a set of records that were years ahead of their time, and which still sound pretty darn mindblowing all these many years later! The package is a long-overdue entry in this hip series from Jazzman Records, and will also have you looking at your collection of older jazz in a completely new way – thanks to tracks that include "Summertime" by Ahmed Abul-Malik, "Love Theme From Spartacus" by Yusef Lateef, "Dorian" by Roy Haynes, "Rip A Dip" by The Latin Jazz Quintet, "Warm Canto" by Mal Waldron, "Organ Rounds" by Moondog, "Death & Taxes" by Walt Dickerson, "Song Of Delilah" by Ahmed Abul-Malik, and "Modette" by Roy Haynes – plus 70s tracks "I've Known Rivers" by Gary Bartz Ntu Troop and "Peace" by Idris Muhammad.

BGP/Ace (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2LP ... $19.99 22.99
More funky breaks than Evel Knevel after the Snake River Canyon jump! The groove hounds at BGP records were set loose on the Ace catalog – which includes holdings from Atlantic, Stax, Volt, Westbound, and other funky classic labels – and they managed to come up with a killer batch of funky cuts, even though this is their 3rd dip into the crates! If anything, perhaps they dipped even deeper this time – especially as some of the once-trusted sources for breaks, like the famous Ultimate Breaks & Beats series, are now disappearing from the market. Titles include "Soul Pad" by The Coasters, "I Walk On Gilded Splinters" by Johnny Jenkins, "T Plays It Cool" by Marvin Gaye, "Nappy Dugout" by Funkadelic, "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" by Jimmy Ponder, "Get Out Of My Life Woman" by The Mad Lads, "The Rose" by 50 Foot Hose, "Holy Ghost" by The Bar Kays, "No Strings Attached" by The Mad Lads, "After Laughter Comes Tears" by Wendy Rene, "River's Invitation" by Freddie Robinson, "This House Is Smokin" by BT Express, "Music Man (parts 1 & 2)" by Pleasure Web, and "I'm Afraid The Masquerade Is Over" by David Porter.

A wicked dip into the catalog of 70s powerhouse Mainstream Records – a set that brings together the funkiest tracks from the label – not just from their electric jazz albums, but also their more obscure funky 45s from the same time too! The package is a strong blend of jazz, funk, and soul – and alongside familiar breaks sampled from the Mainstream label, you'll also hear some funky nuggets that are long overdue for greater exposure – all laid out in a way that really gets at the diversity of the company's great ear for heavy grooves! Long tracks mix with shorter ones, in a way that really keeps things fresh – and titles include "TB's Delight" by Dave Hubbard, "Miss Fatback" by Saundra Phillips, "Kissing My Love" by Afrique, "These Memories" by Almeta Lattimore, "Mother McCree" by Reggie Moore, "Make It With You" by Maxine Weldon, "Blue's Blue" by Blue Mitchell, "Livin Way Too Fast" by December's Children, "This Moment" by Hal Galper, "Bird & The Ouija Board" by Pete Yellin, "Papa Was A Rolling Stone" by Jay Berliner, and "Just A Little Lovin" by Sarah Vaughan.

One of the greatest albums ever from James Brown – even if it wasn't issued during his classic run of funk records in the early 70s! Yet the material here is all from that time – recorded by Polydor when James and the JBs were completely kicking ass in the studio – turning out these monstrous longform funk jams that often gave up too much material to fit on all of his albums – which makes this package an overdue dip into the vaults to rescue some of those treasures! The package first saw the light of day in 1988 – at a time when the genius of James was being rediscovered by younger hip hoppers and DJs – and the set is a love letter to all that James had to offer that scene – with gems that include the lost soul classic "She's The One", a duet with Bobby Byrd called "Since You Been Gone", a live version of "There It Is", an untitled instrumental and another instrumental one called "Funk Bomb" – plus a huge long 9 minute version of the great "People Get Up & Drive Your Funky Soul" from Slaughter's Big Ripoff, and the cuts "Say It Loud & Live", and "Baby Here I Come".

The first big Paul Desmond solo album of the 60s – and a standout set that's very much in the tradition of his best work on RCA! This rare side was cut for Warner Brothers during a time when they were taking a brief dip into jazz – and it's a rarely-heard set that features Jim Hall on guitar, Connie Kay on drums, and Percy Heath on bass, all backing up Paul with a spare "after hours" sound that's a marked change from his tightly woven work with Brubeck. Desmond's alto is full of possibilities here – working wonders with familiar tunes like "Greensleeves", "You Go To My Head", "Time After Time", and "East Of The Sun" – as well as with the John Lewis modern number "2 Degrees East, 3 Degrees West".

80s sounds from the Somali scene – but served up with a lean, raw quality that feels a lot more like 70s funk overall! In a decade where some of the other scenes on the continent were using more beats, electronics, and keyboards – Dur Dur Band still keep things plenty live, and plenty loud – using these massive basslines that dip with influences from Latin and Jamaican music – while also hitting hard with a sharper funky sound on the guitar and drums, and also hitting some cool modes on the reeds that have a strong East African vibe! The production is as raw as the instrumentation – and the whole thing's got a gritty edge, even when a few moogy keyboards come into the mix. Titles include "Dab", "Ohiyee", "Yabaal", "Heelo", "Doon Baa Maraysso", "Bubba Aaka, "Aduun Hawli Kama Dhamaato", and "Keen Gardaran".

This is the original US pressing of an album that was later issued by Capitol under a different name. Given that Capitol had recently linked up with the ever-growing EMI corporation in the early 60s, it was able to take advantage of the global catalog of the music giant, and managed to dip pretty heavily into the Brazilian Odeon catalog of tunes to cash in on the American popularity of bossa nova. This album was one of their bigger imports, and it features material originally recorded in Brazil, with Gilberto up front, backed by arrangements by Jobim. This is the classic material that made Gilberto's fame in the early days – and titles include "Doralice", "O Pato", "Discussao", "Outra Vez", and "Corcovado". LP, Vinyl record album

While Hinds had a rawer, less polished approach to his own singing, and the vocal harmonies of the Dominos followed suit, that's what makes this set stand out from the rest of the pack Island was recruiting at the time, and the Black Disciples craft some tough rhythms for a great mid 70s roots side.

Backings often have a gentle dip underneath the strings – letting Mathis pick up some slight groovy rhythms at points, on titles that include "Light My Fire", "59th Street Bridge Song", "This Guy's In Love With You", "You Make Me Think About You", "The World I Used To Know", and "Turn Around Look At Me".

Odeon (Brazil), 1968. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
We love this album! This is the best record ever by Geraldo Vandre – one of the most important voices in MPB in the pre-Tropicalia years, working here in a sublime mix of styles that foreshadows some of the best Brazilian styles of the 70s. Vandre's songs are incredibly dark – with slightly folksy overtones that recall some of Nara Leao's best work of the same time – but which often have an even more political, socially conscious nature. Backings are by Lyrio Panicali, but they're very spare – so that acoustic guitar and Vandre's voice carry most of the tracks – but also hint at some other elements that dip and turn out of the murky background. A perfect description of this one is impossible, but the sound of the record will grab you immediately – with a presence that few records from this time can match! Titles include "Cantiga Brava", "Maria Rita", "Terra Plana", "Ventania", "O Plantador", and "Joao E Maria". One we wouldn't trade for anything! CD

The title Deeper Roots works on dual fronts. It's got pretty rare material, discovered by the always deep diggers at Pressure Sounds – but the material has deeper spiritual resonance, too – with a nice Rasta vibe running throughout!

Killer work from a time when the Jamaican music scene was really coming into its own – served up here from the vaults of Federal Records, who were one of the key imprints helping capture the new Kingston sounds of the 60s! Federal already had roots in Jamaican jazz and other styles, which they definitely bring to bear on the recording of these tunes – tracks that are very different than later revival ska, and even some of the late 60s Jamaican hits – and which often have a gritty quality that tie them much more strongly to the earlier styles that led to the music. As the package indicates, all tracks here are rare, and some are unreleased – with titles that include "Blue Ska" by The Cavaliers, "One Ska One Ounce Of Weed One Beer" by Clive Wilson & The Skatalites, "Third Man Theme" by Granville Williams, "What To Do" by Federal Singers, "Come Along With Me" by The Maytals & Don Drummond, "String Of Pearls" by Audley Williams, "I Man" by The Cavaliers, "Coppa" by The Maytals & Don Drummond, "Love Is All I Have" by The Federal Singers, and "Dip Them" by The Cavaliers.

Enigmatic folk rock and soulful bluesy vocals from Karen Dalton – her legendary lost 1971 album that's credited with inspiring some the most idiosyncratic work by folk rock superstars and contemporary freak folk heroes alike! Karen was a fixture on the 60s NY folk scene – Dylan even gives her props in his Chronicles Vol 1 memoirs – but she rarely recorded. Her voice carries a huge Billie Holiday influence – but the delivery is wholly unique in her earthy folk phrasing, a real dip back into Harry Smith territory. Her guitar and banjo picking is strong, too! In My Own Time was recorded for Paramount at the end of 1970 and beginning of '71, with really rich and surprisingly soulful backing on an interesting selection of material written or popularized by Dylan & The Band, George Jones, Paul Butterfield, and even a folksy soul take on "When A Man Loves A Woman". Light In The Attic shines a huge light for this reverential reissue – pristinely remastered, with a thick booklet of liner notes by Lenny Kaye, Nick Cave and Devendra Banhart.

Brightly beautiful sounds from this popular Guinea group of the 70s – served up in a cascading array of guitars and percussion, all topped with warmly harmonic vocals from the group! The guitar interplay is what really makes the record great, especially on the fast-moving songs – as there's almost a doppler effect going on as the electric strings criss-cross, dip, and turn with the rhythms – particularly at moments when one of the players is using a bit of effects! The result is a record that's maybe one of the best mixes of psychedelic elements with more familiar highlife modes – but in a way that's never slavish to either genres – on titles that include "Ramedi Cu Kata Cura", "Pampariria 79", "Luta Kana Maina No 1", "Amelia Mane", "N'Simba", and "Cambanca Djombo".

Plantation, Late 60s. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
The one and only album from Linda Martell – one of the first African-American women to dip into the genre of country music! The album's got a pretty straight country feel overall – none of the country soul you might hear from deep soul singers of the time – or those later modes that artists like Millie Jackson picked up in the 70s. But the set was also recorded as part of the SSS International family of labels headed by Shelby Singleton – who also cut a fair bit of soul music at the time – often blending modes, musicians, and songs on the Nashville scene of the time. The best example of that approach here is Linda's excellent remake of "Color Him Father" – first made famous by The Winstons – done as a sweet-stepping number with a very different feel than the original. Other tracks include "The Wedding Cake", "Before The Next Teardrop Falls", "Old Letter Song", and "Tender Leaves Of Love". LP, Vinyl record album

Essential! One wonders why when the original King Tubby Meets Rockers Uptown album is so heavy, that you'd want another dub version, but one spin of this special reissue package and you'll be convinced. Altogether different dubs and versions of many of the same rhythm cuts as that watershed dub LP only prove that the whole concept of "versioning", and cutting multiple dubs of the same rhythms (usually to service selectors and sound systems who needed unique tracks) was pure genius on the part of Jamaican producers. Add that to the sheer weight of the rhythms used here, and you've got a formula for a potent set! Once again, the producers at Pressure Sounds have dug up some beautiful gems, finding unique versions of H. Swaby's melodica dancing over thundering Rockers' rhythms and taking a dip now and again in a bucket of reverb & echoplex. Insightful liner notes and a beautiful sleeve complete this package of 17 massive instrumental tracks, including "Black Gunn", "New Style", "El Rockers", "Skanking Easy", "Tribalist" and "Cassava Piece".

The collection definitely takes its "Afrosound" title seriously – and goes for grooves that are deeper than usual, with rhythmic interplay that ranges from rootsy to jazzy – and which often has a nice link to older African traditions – of the sort that African artists would then borrow back from Colombian music in the 70s! There's loads here we've never discovered before – and the double-length collection is a really revelatory one, on a par with Colombian work from labels like Soundway or Analog Africa. Titles include "Banana De Queso" by Afrosound, "Calenita" by Michi Sarmiento, "Rosalba" by Banda 20 De Julio De Repelon, "Dale Al Bambo" by The Latin Brothers, "Pachanga Miramar" by El Sexteto Miramar, "Cumbia De Luna" by El Combo Loco, "Juventud Flaca Y Loca" by Lisandro Meza Y Su Como Gigante, "Yolanda" by Los Bestiales, "El Nativo" by Wganda Kenya, "Batukacuto" by Tita Duval, "Goza Mi Tamborera" by Los Teenagers, and "Staying Alive" by Machuca Cumbia.

A wonderful female soul trio from the Chicago scene of the 70s – and one we'd stand strongly next to the best gal groups from the Philly or New York scenes! In fact, Coffee were a bit unique in the city – which mostly had male groups getting the record contracts during the decade – and they're given strong soul focus here by Clarence Johnson, the indie soul producer who'd given the city so much other great music over the years! The album's definitely got a disco vibe, but these gals can sing a lot deeper than the usual club trio, too – vocals that are much more trained in an older school mode, ala The Emotions – and which come across nicely on some of the mellower cuts too. Titles include great reworkings of two earlier Chicago soul gems – the Lovelites' classic "How Can I Tell My Mom & Dad", redone as "Mom & Dad 1980", and a fresh new take on Ruby Andrews "Casanova". Other titles include "Slip & Dip", "A Promise", "I Wanna Be With You", and "Can You Get To This".

The Hackney Colliery Band really open the doors wide here – more than living up to the promise of the collaborations in the title – as the set features guest work from a range of artists that includes Bugge Wesseltoft, Mulatu Astatke, keyboardist James Taylor, Rob Auton, Angelique Kido, and many others! The core sound of the group still drives most of the tracks – strong rhythms from Olly Blackman and Luke Christie on drums – both very strong forces in the sound – topped with trumpet work from Steve Pretty and the other brass members of the group – but in ways that still allow the guests to dip their special talents into the mix. Christie, Pretty, and Blackman handled most of the arrangements – and titles include "Mm", "Why Yellow", "Netsanet", "Crushing Lactic", "Derashe", "Climbing Up My Own Life Until I Die", "What's Gone Before", and "Ricochet".

✨✧ Mad Man JagaWakabout ... LP
Dig This Way (Italy), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A great little set from Mad Man Jaga – one of the few 70s albums by the Nigerian singer – despite a long legacy in other groups, including that of Sir Victor Uwaifo – who produced the entire set! The music is a blend of the skittish styles of Uwaifo's own music, with maybe a touch of Kingston in the mix – especially on the basslines, with dip and bubble in nice way, and almost get a bit dubby – while earthy percussion criss-crosses on the more upbeat tracks, and horn touches add a nice edge to the whole proceedings. Titles include "Wakabout", "Hankuri", "Aondo Ter", "Mama Warm", "Tell Me Why You Cry", and "You Don't Love Me No More". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Nina SimoneSilk & Soul (expanded edition) ... CD
RCA, 1967. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of Nina's first for RCA – a mixture of jazz and soul tunes handled with some classy arrangements by Sammy Lowe, most of which feature nice electric bass work at the bottom by Gene Taylor! Taylor's bass gives the tracks a nice "dip" that's not exactly funky, but does provide a strong kick that keeps things moving along nicely – in a way that points towards the direction Nina would take in the 70s, and which makes this album a fair bit hipper than some of her Philips work! Nina's not as over the top as on other records, but still lays it out quite hiply – and tracks include "Consummation", "Go To Hell", "Love O Love", "It Be's That Way Sometime", "Turn Me On", and "Some Say". CD features bonus tracks "Save Me" and "Why Must Your Love Well Be So Dry". CD

✨✧ Le Kene Star De SikassoHodi Hu Yenyan ... CD
Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the coolest records we've ever heard from the Mali scene of the 70s – a set that's got lots of unusual rhythmic impulses and vocal inflections – with a style that moves way beyond anything we might have expected! One of the best elements of the record is this really cool use of electric organ – played at a style that's almost more electronic than the standard sounds you'd expect from the instrument – thin tones that have an eerie, exotic quality that fits in beautifully with the pulsating rhythms and guitar lines! Vocals soar and dip along with the grooves – sometimes with a full-on chorus feel, other times in a more call/response mode that makes the record feel very personal and spontaneous – especially on the long track that takes up all of side two, the compelling "Lala". Side one features shorter numbers, but all equally wonderful – and titles include "Fitiriwale", "Hodi Hu Yenyan", and "Kenedugu Fanga". CD

Federal/Dub Store (Japan), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Killer work from a time when the Jamaican music scene was really coming into its own – served up here from the vaults of Federal Records, who were one of the key imprints helping capture the new Kingston sounds of the 60s! Federal already had roots in Jamaican jazz and other styles, which they definitely bring to bear on the recording of these tunes – tracks that are very different than later revival ska, and even some of the late 60s Jamaican hits – and which often have a gritty quality that tie them much more strongly to the earlier styles that led to the music. As the package indicates, all tracks here are rare, and some are unreleased – with titles that include "Blue Ska" by The Cavaliers, "One Ska One Ounce Of Weed One Beer" by Clive Wilson & The Skatalites, "Third Man Theme" by Granville Williams, "What To Do" by Federal Singers, "Come Along With Me" by The Maytals & Don Drummond, "String Of Pearls" by Audley Williams, "I Man" by The Cavaliers, "Coppa" by The Maytals & Don Drummond, "Love Is All I Have" by The Federal Singers, and "Dip Them" by The Cavaliers.

Philips (Brazil), Early 60s. Very Good ... $11.99
A rare bit of samba jazz from Brazil – the only album we've ever seen by this Hammond-lead combo featuring organist Paulo Roberto! Roberto's sound is clean and lean – very much in the spirit of Walter Wanderley from the same period, and backed here with a similar blend of snapping percussion, plus bits of guitar, sax, and trumpet that really further the groove of the set! Rhythms are a mix of samba and bossa modes – and the record reminds us a fair bit of Ed Lincoln's best records – with lots of groovers throughout! Titles include "Murmurio", "Praca Onze", "Quem Me Dera", "Chorou Chorou", "Zelao", "O Morro Nao Tem Vez", and "E Voce Nao Dizia Nada". LP, Vinyl record album

RovaSaxophone Diplomacy ... CD
Hat Art (Switzerland), 1983. New Copy ... $16.99 18.99
An important early album from the Rova Quartet – one that earns the diplomacy in its title in two different ways – first because it features recordings from a tour that the group made to Soviet bloc nations during the cold war years – and second because it was one of their first records to get wide circulation, and helped act as a calling card for their unique sound around the globe! The group are at their early creative peak here – with John Raskin on baritone, alto, soprano, and clarinet; Larry Ochs on tenor and sopranino; Andrew Vogt on alto, soprano, sopranino, and flutes; and Bruce Ackley on soprano and clarinet – all visionary players coming together with no other accompaniment at all – and really blowing us away especially on the longer tracks that sustain their ideas beautifully. Fantastic sounds and shapes throughout – and titles include "The Throes", "Flamingo Horizons", "Paint Another Take Of The Shootpop", and "Detente Or Detroit". CD

Funsho Ogundipe (UK), 2002. Used ... Out Of Stock
The great first album from Ayetoro – the African-styled ensemble led by keyboardist Funsho Ogundipe, who works here exclusively on Fender Rhodes! The styles certainly owe a fair bit to the Afro Funk years of the 70s – but their execution is a lot more sophisticated, and the album resonates strongly with a post-colonial London vibe – one that brings in as much jazz as African influences, in a blend that's really unique, tremendously warm, and filled with soul throughout! The group are hardly just a copycat Afro Funk combo – and Funsho's compositions and arrangements mark him as an important talent to watch! Byron Wallen plays trumpet in the group, and tracks include "Revenge Of The Flying Monkeys", "Becklow Gardens", "From Benin To Belize", "Yoruba Boyz Club", and "Blues 4 The Earth Mother". CD

Maybe the strongest solo project ever from Phil Alvin – a late 80s effort dedicated to the romping R&B sounds of the 50s – done with great help from both the Dirty Dozen Brass Band and the Sun Ra Arkestra! A number of cuts are from the glory days of the R&B single – and the approach moves between tracks with Alvin's combo, one with the Dirty Dozen, and three especially nice tracks with the Arkestra! Given the way that Sun Ra's 80s material was often dipping back into earlier generations of jazz, the group make for a very strong fit with Phil's approach – on titles that include "Someone Stole Gabriel's Horn", "Titanic Blues", "Collins Cave", "Death In The Morning", "Next Week Sometime", and "The Old Man Of The Mountain".

Burt BacharachButch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid ... LP
A&M, Early 70s. Very Good ... $2.99
Forget everything you know about "Raindrops Are Falling On My Head", and give Burt kudos for this gem of an album! Sure, "Raindrops" shows up here a few times – instrumentally, and in 2 BJ Thomas vocal versions – and it's not a bad tune at all. But the real gems are some of the instrumentals – which have Burt almost doing a Tijuana take on his classic A&M sound – in a style that's really wonderful! Our favorite cut is the amazing "South American Getaway" – a breezy vocal scatting number that seems to take the best of the Swingle Singers and I Cantori Modern and roll them into one groovy tune that soars, dips, turns, twists, and holds our dear heart close for 5 minutes and 13 seconds! It's a real gem, and worth the price of the album alone – but you'll also get a few other nice ones, like "The Old Fun City", "The Sundance Kid", "Come Touch The Sun", and "Not Goin Home Anymore".

Roundtable (Australia), 1971. New Copy ... $16.99
A beautiful and exotic score from the great John Barry – one that never had as much circulation on record as some of his bigger hits of the time, but which is equally well deserving of praise! The music is done for Nicolas Roeg's film Walkabout – set mostly in the Australian outback – and Barry mixes these breathy orchestrations with some rootsier acoustic elements – in ways that really echo the contrast of the characters in the narrative, and remind us of the sensitivity that Barry can have at his most sophisticated moments. Three tracks differ slightly from this approach – the seven minute long fuzzy freakout "Electronic Dance", which is totally great in its own sort of way – the experimental echoey "Professional Crumble" – and the vocal number "Los Angeles", kind of a hippy dippy tune. Other titles include "The Three Of Us", "Walkabout", "The Children", "The Journey", "Stranded", and "Night In The Outback". CD

Bayan Mongol Variety Group may not have the catchiest name in the record store – but they definitely have a sound that really stands out from the pack – and which comes across as this unusual mix of 70s styles and more traditional modes! The vocals are by the two ladies pictured on the front – who quickly move into emotive modes when needed, supported by a group with these nicely dipping basslines that step along in gentle grooves that are sometimes augmented by just the right touches on horns and keyboards. Things are never totally funky, but maybe always on the edge – and titles include "May There Always Be Peace", "Bayan Mongol", "I Sing For You From Afar", "A Black Horse", "Song Of Mother", and "Eighteen Years Old".

Philips/Polysom (Brazil), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
Searing samba soul from Jorge Ben – one of his best-remembered albums of the 70s, and for good reason too! The album's got a slightly fuller feel than some of Ben's other work of the time – never slick, but with backings balanced nicely against his own raspy vocals and acoustic guitar – sweetening things up with a bit of the strings you'd find on Forca Bruta, but with a hint of the soul to come on Africa Brasil! The balance is great – thanks to arrangers Osmar Milito, Darcy De Paulo, and Hugo Bellard – and as usual, Jorge's vocals are the main attraction – dipping, turning, and rising with this really unique, personal feel – Ben-like brilliance at its brightest. The whole thing's wonderful – a key gem from the Philips years – and titles include "Cinco Minutos", "Zumbi", "Brother", "Os Alquimistas Estao Chegando Os Alquimistas", "Errare Humanum Est", "Menina Muler Da Pele Preta", "Hermes Tri", and "O Namorado Da Viuva".

Half the tunes are familiar favorites, the other half originals – and Blythe moves far past his avant roots, to showcase his deep understanding of so many different shades of jazz – blowing alto beautifully throughout, in a very hip quartet that features Stanley Cowell on piano, Fred Hopkins on bass, and Steve McCall on drums! Titles include great takes on "Naima", "Jitterbug Waltz", "Caravan", and "In A Sentimental Mood" – plus the originals "Break Tune" and "Hip Dipper". LP, Vinyl record album

If you've ever been wondering which album to get by Chico Buarque – this is it! The record's a stunning batch of sophisticated sides, done in collaboration with Roberto Menescal, and with help from Jobim and MPB4! The album builds on the style of Buarque's excellent late 60s songwriting, and adds in some of the more complicated approaches to arrangement that were being developed in Brazil at the end of the 60s – in a way that pushes Chico's work to the next level, and which makes this record sit right up there with work at the time by Jobim or Edu Lobo. Titles include "Samba De Orly", "Valsinha", "Acalanto", "Deus Ilhe Pague", and "Construcao". Really beautiful – with a lot of soul, and a great sound! CD
(Note: the CD has a few slight dips in sound at times, very brief and nothing major – and this is an issue with the original mastering of the record. Out of print, 1993 pressing.)

Rollin Rock/Bear Family (Germany), 1974/1976. New Copy ... $9.99 24.99
Two later albums from the great Ray Campi – an early rockabilly wildman, and one who managed to keep on going well through the 70s underground – all without losing a beat! Rockabilly Lives is the first album up here – recorded in LA in 1974, with this really raw sound, and a mode that's maybe even more faithful to the idea of a romping rockabilly style than most of the late 50s singles on Sun Records! Most numbers just feature a very heavy acoustic bass setting up the groove that everyone else is bound to follow – including Ray, whose raw vocals haven't lost any bit of their edge, so much so that his guitar often takes second place. Titles include "Let Er Roll", "Ballin Keen", "Blue Ranger", "Hot Dog", "Rock It", and "Boogie Boogie Boo". Eager Beaver Boy features Ray with an expanded lineup, but one that only seems to let Campi get even more wild and crazy upfront on his own! Ray's got this vocal style that could put Tenpole Tudor to shame – dipping, cresting, and inflecting all these amazing notes alongside his mighty basslines as they cook up the tunes. Titles include "Pinball Millionaire", "Eager B B Beaver Boy", "Pretty Mama", "One Part Stops Where The Other Begins", "Wicked Wicked Woman", "Parts Unknown", "Play Anything", and "Major Label Blues".

Most tracks are nice and long, and have a brashness that's got us dipping back into Carney's catalog all over again – given superb rhythm encouragement from Dezron Douglas on bass and Tom Rainey on drums – the last two parts of the puzzle for this crackling sextet.

Tracks include tunes by Valle, Verocai, and others – and titles include "Em Familia", "Mia", "Vida De Artista", "Dominus Tecum", "Ay Adelita", "Toda Quarta Feira Depois Do Amor", "A Hora E Essa", "E Preciso Dizer ADeus", and "Badalacao".

A massive set from Nigeria's CS Crew – and a set that definitely lives up to its title! The bass is super-heavy on these grooves – way more so than on other Afro Funk records of the time, and in ways that easily match, if not beat, the early best by Fatback Band and Kool & The Gang – grooves that have amazing dexterity that few others could match, yet which always come through right on the money every time! The bass dips, turns, soars, and drops magically on each number – setting things up strongly for the group's riffing guitar, sweet keyboard lines (including a big of moog!), and few horn moments – which themselves often come across more like an American group than a Nigerian one. Vocals have this rough approach – often part of the rhythm more than anything else – and titles include "Love Is Peace", "Freaky Funkyfied Fix", "Bread Power", "Doin The Good Thing", "I've Found Love", "Last Day", and "Dig In With Time".

The cover photo is old, but this set is actually new – a reformed version of the group, working in a surprisingly faithful studio setting – to recapture the pristine pop glory of their hits, and some other classics from the 70s! In fact, if we hadn't dipped into the notes, we'd be tempted to say that all the work here is vintage – which is our tip of the hat to the production team behind the record – who really do a great job with tunes that include "Billy Don't Be A Hero", "Sad Eyes", "Who Do You Think You Are", "Sky High", "Hooked On A Feeling", "Wildflower", "Hello It's Me", and "Saturday Night".

A beautifully trippy record – recorded by a loose collective of musicians and singers brought together around the scene at Apostolic Studios, in a relaxed setting that makes for some of the most offbeat sounds you'll ever hear on the Vanguard label in the 60s! There's more of a Fugs/ESP vibe than Vanguard's usual folk or psych – and the whole thing almost comes across more like a "happening" than a record – with shifting styles, shifting participants, and a mix of modes that runs from folk, to acoustic psych, and embraces global elements too – as the instrumentation moves between guitars, piano, harmonium, oud, organ, chimes, mandolin, and many more instrumental elements. Singers shift nicely, too – and the credits even list some participants as playing water, and also coughing, sniffling, and yawning too. Lyrics are nicely hippy-dippy –optimistic, with almost child-like sense of innocence – and titles include "Devil's Yard", "Down The Road", "Zoo Song", "Spring Song", "I Won't Be Sad Again", "Saigon Girls", and "Personality".

"Yellow Fever" is a brutal attack on miscegenation, backed by a funky groove that makes the whole thing fall into place with an amazing riffing sound – bold, powerful, and Afrika 70 at their best! "Na Poi 75" begins with a cool spoken bit – then moves into this pulsating keyboard part which is almost eerily spare, until the rest of Afrika 70 come into the mix and really funk things up! Drums are wonderfully skittish – kind of double-snapping, while the bassline dips nicely below – and the tune ebbs and flows in this really great way. LP, Vinyl record album

The sublime first album from K Frimpong – a really unique blend of hi-life and Afro Funk, but served up with all these unusual touches that make the album stand out from even most of the rest of the revolutionary sounds that were coming from Ghana at the time! There's this sense of flow that has each side of the record moving with non-stop energy – and an approach to rhythm that's almost as if the whole thing was moving forward like water – a tide of bass, percussion, riffing guitar, and organ – bubbling, dipping, and chugging in a way that seems completely effortless – while Frimpong urges the group on with his well-inflected vocals and lead guitar! Titles include "Nana Bue Me", "Mofofoo", "Komofo Adu", "Otwie", "Osaw", "M"Anoma", "Moma Yen Sore", and "Susuansu". LP, Vinyl record album
(Beautiful pressing – heavy vinyl and cover!)

Larry HallSandy – The 45s & More 1959 to 1962 ... CD
Jasmine (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $7.99 13.99
A nice range of work from Larry Hall – a singer who's best known as a one-hit wonder, with a small hit at that – but who steps out here with a groovy batch of material that only ever saw release as a string of indie label 45s at the end of the 50s and start of the 60s! Larry's got a great way of dipping and warbling his voice – never too much, but this unique inflection that can make simple lyrics catchier than they might otherwise sound – captured here with backings that mix rock and roll with gentler pop production, a mode that's maybe like some of the Cadence or Dot Records material of the period. Titles include Larry's hit "Sandy" – plus "Kool Luv", "The Stranger", "Rebel Heart", "Lips Of Wine", "Ladder Of Love", "I Didn't Ask To Be Born", "I'll Stay Single", "For Every Boy", "A Girl Like You", "Lovin Tree", and "I Sit Alone".

Kitsos HarisiadisLament In A Deep Style – 1929 to 1931 ... CD
Third Man, Late 20s/Early 30s. New Copy ... $7.99 15.00
Clarinet music, but unlike anything else you might have heard before – as Greek musician Kitsos Harisiadis uses the instrument in a style that's quite far from American jazz and swing! Instead, the clarinet here is used on a series of folkloric tunes – music from the northwestern region of Greece, where Kitsos lived in the 20s – preserved here on vintage 78rpm recordings that are filled with rich tone and echo – audio that seems to transform the clarinet even more, as the instrument is set amidst spare percussion or stringed instrument backing – to soar out into space with a very melancholy vibe! Harisiadis is incredibly deft – running up and down the instrument with the speed and creativity of a free jazz musician, but always keeping things melodic, even when emotionally moving. Titles include "Zagorisio", "Dipli Gaida", "Skaros", "Mirologi In Do", "Stroto Pogonisio", "Miarologi Arvanitiko", and "Gaida". CD

Tony HatchBest Of Tony Hatch & His Orchestra ... CD
Sequel/Castle (UK), 1960s/1970s. Used ... $13.99
30 fab tracks by one of the best Brit arrangers ever! Tony Hatch is the guy who brought Petula Clark so much success during the mid 60s – but these tracks show him as a supremely great talent on his own, working through a host of instrumental styles that run from 60s mod, to Brit easy, to 70s funk, and beyond! The package is great, with a wealth of Sound Gallery type numbers that will keep you dipping in again and again. Cuts include instrumental versions of "A Man and A Woman", "Music To Watch Girls By", "An Occasional Man", "Naked City", "Soul Coaxing", and his big hit "Call Me", plus some great original stormers like "Sounds of The Seventies", "Hadleigh", "Devil's Herd", "Theme From Dick Powell", and "Birds". Nice package, and a motherlode of easy grooves that you'd never find Stateside! CD

Motohiko HinoToko Flash ... CD
Trio/Solid (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $22.99
Really unique work from a trio led by drummer Motohiko Hino, and which features Masahiko Satoh on piano and Nobuyoshi Ino on bass – all players who aren't content to just rest in the usual piano trio modes of the time, and who instead really break open the format with their creative work on the album! Satoh has a way of playing lyrically at the start, then really opening up – and Ino's bass rolls and dips with its own sense of melody that's quite beautiful – as Hino works far far away from straight rhythm, and often peppers the songs with personal exclamations of his own. Yet none of the numbers are ever too far out, either – just loosely structured, but respectful of the melodies, while never enslaved to them. Titles include "My Favorite Things", "Norwegian Wood", "Flash", "Overhang Blues", and "Once Upon A Summertime". CD

Incredible String BandU ... LP
Elektra, 1970. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $16.99
A wonderfully expansive album from The Incredible String Band – initially performed as a stage project with the Stone Monkey dance troupe, and featuring the ISB at their most evocative and creative! Some tunes have a darker, sinister undercurrent – that link between the band and the acid folk underground – but others are more hippy dippy, with playful touches that still seem to have this undercurrent of evil somehow – an offbeat quality that really marks the special way that British groups like this were taking folk in very odd directions at the time – never losing sight of roots, but still never having the sense of optimism or indulgence of American acts. The double-length set has loads of especially nice instrumental moments – both acoustic and electric – and titles include "Bridge Song", "El Wool Suite", "The Juggler's Song", "Bad Sadie Lee", "Partial Belated Overture", "Walking Along With You", "Invocation", and "Robot Blues".

Thad Jones & Mel LewisAll My Yesterdays – The Debut 1966 Village Vanguard Recordings (3LP 180 gram vinyl pressing) (2019 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Resonance, 1966. New Copy 3LP Gatefold (reissue)... $69.99
The birth of a legend – documented here in a really wonderful package – a brilliant 2CD set that brings forth the first-ever recordings of the Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Orchestra – heard here on the debut nights of their very long run of Monday night performances at the Village Vanguard! Right from the start, this group was really something special – formed by the meeting of two legendary talents, trumpeter Thad Jones and drummer Mel Lewis – and driven strongly by a lineup of all-star players who were happy to shelve their egos this night of the week, and come together in a unit that was far more than just the sum of its amazing parts. Players on these two nights include Hank Jones on piano, Richard Davis on bass, Jimmy Owens and Bill Berry on trumpets, Bob Brookmeyer and Garnett Brown on trombones, and Jerome Richardson, Joe Farrell, Pepper Adams, and Jerry Dodgion on a flurry of amazing reed performances – producing the kinds of insane colors and edges the group was always known for! This isn't big band jazz – at least not the sort you'd think of with cliche – and instead, the recordings document the meeting of amazing talents creating effortlessly together under the leadership of two generous giants. The package is wonderful, really a tribute to this amazing music – oversized, and with a huge booklet of notes and photos – and 2CDs with titles that include "Back Bone", "Big Dipper", "Mornin Reverend", "Little Pixie", "All My Yesterdays", "Once Around", "Ah That's Freedom", and "Don't Ever Leave Me".

✨✧ Yusef LateefBlue Yusef Lateef ... LP
Atlantic, 1968. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
One of our favorite Atlantic albums by the great Yusef Lateef – an incredible session that has him dipping back into his earlier exotic roots with those great reed styles of the early 60s – yet also hitting a mix of soul and funk like some of his other albums from the time! The sound is tremendous – wonderfully righteous, at a level that really set the tone for more ambitious soul jazz projects of the 70s by other artists – including the best of the soul jazz underground who were often as inspired by Lateef as they were by Coltrane! The group's great, too – and features Blue Mitchell on trumpet, Sonny Red on alto, Hugh Lawson on piano, Cecil McBee on bass, and Roy Brooks on drums – next to Yusef's own work on tenor, flute, bamboo flute, tamboura, and percussion. Titles include "Sun Dog", "Moon Cup", "Othelia", "Like It Is", and the groovy "Juba Juba". LP, Vinyl record album

Charles LloydMoon Man ... LP
Kapp, Early 70s. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $14.99
Weird bit of hippy dippy jazz from Charles Lloyd, with vocals on most tracks, and lots of groovy lyrics about "the moonman", "computer man", and "heavy kharma". The vocalist is not credited, but most of the lyrics are written by Lloyd, although we don't really think he's singing. The backing is still fairly groovy and jazzy, but the record's quite different than many of Lloyd's other LPs. Titles include "Hejira", "Moonman", "Sermon", and "Sweet Juvenia".

✨✧ Helen MerrillCasa Forte ... CD
EmArcy/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A wonderful album from Helen Merrill – one of the few jazz singers we can think of who continued to grow stylistically as the years went on! This majestic album was recorded in 1980, and it features Merrill dipping into a modern Brazilian bag – working with baroque arrangements that blend jazz and strings in the style of some of Milton Nascimento's work, but handled here with a more sensitive approach that has a lot more focus on the vocals on a few tracks. The track selection is wonderful – and the album features great versions of songs like "Wave", "Natural Sounds", "Like A Lover", "Casa Forte", "Antonio's Song", "Vera Cruz", and "So Many Stars". Arrangements are by Torrie Zito, but done with even more jazz than usual – thanks to the presence of players like Sal Nistico on tenor, Urbie Green on trombone, Bucky Pizzarelli on guitar, and Zito himself on piano.

David Peel & The Lower East SideHave A Marijuana ... LP
Elektra, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $11.99
Probably one of the most controversial records to be issued on Elektra at the end of the 60s – a rough-edged batch of hippie dippy tracks that shares a fair bit of energy and humor with The Fugs! The tunes here are perhaps a bit more focused than the work of The Fugs, but the group explore similar territory too – not just the drug references in the title, but also the kind of offbeat word play and double-entendres that were common at the time. The set was recorded "live on the streets of New York" – and Peel sings, and plays harmonica and guitar – with other instrumentation that includes two 12-string guitars, bass, and tambourine. Titles include "Mother Where Is My Father", "Here Comes A Cop", "Up Against The Wall", "I've Got Some Grass", "I Do My Bawling In The Bathroom", and "Show Me The Way To Get Stoned".

Ghislain PoirierBreakupdown ... CD
Chocolate Industries, 2005. Used ... $1.99
Ghislain Poirer once again delivers a batch of synthetic rhythms and computer groove with a thump learned from hip hop – and the results are far more enjoyable than many of the more pretentious laptop chin scratchers out there! Ghislain's beats occasionally ratchet up to floorshaking levels, and he leans towards a genuine musicality that draw on different styles, for a still coherent sound. He can rock a hip hop styled sound with guest MCs, a dark, almost no wave intensity, midtempo electronic groove, even a reggae steeped track. All of which is to say that it actually succeeds as real music, not just synthetic clutter! Tracks include "Don't Smile, It's Post Modern", "Cold As Hell" feat Beans, "Synthetic Rhythms", "Close To The News", "Mic Diplomat" feat DJ Collage, "Copier, Copier", "Travelling", "Body Jokes", "Nowere To Run" feat Lotek Hi-Fi, "Embargo Riddim" and more!
