Billy EckstineStormy ... LP
Enterprise, 1970. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Think what you might about Mr. B, but this is a sweet soulful album of dreamy pop songs, produced and arranged by Isaac Hayes, with a similar sound to some of the work from the same time by Grady Tate. Billy's voice is as deep and round as always, and the newer backing brings a nice quality to his sound that you don't get from other albums. The Bar-Kays did the rhythm backup, and the album also includes some larger string arrangements. Titles include "I Wanna Be Your Baby", "The Luckiest Man In The World", "Stormy", and "Name Of My Sorrow". LP, Vinyl record album

Maynard FergusonRidin' High ... CD
Enterprise/Wounded Bird, 1968. New Copy ... $6.99
A very groovy record by Maynard – with a soulful mid 60s Atlantic Records finish! The album's hipper than most of Ferguson's from the 60s – with a range of arrangers that includes Tom McIntosh, Willie Maiden, Locksley Hampton, and Don Sebesky – all of whom bring Maynard's large group into territory that sounds like some of the more soulful jazz acts on Atlantic at the time. The record features a great cover of "Wack Wack", a slightly funky take on "Sunny", and the original cuts "Light Green", "Satan Speaks", "Molecules", "Meet A Cheetah", and "Kundalini Woman". Very nice! CD

✨✧ Chico HamiltonMaster (limited edition LP sleeve pressing) ... CD
Enterprise/Culture Factory (France), 1974. New Copy ... $9.99 14.98
A totally excellent bit of funk from Chico Hamilton – working with a great group that more than helps their leader live up to the album's title! The record's a real lost gem – and it's got Chico working in much funkier territory than before, grooving with complicated rhythms, and a heavy sound that features lots of work on organ and guitar. Lowell George (of Little Feat fame) is playing slide guitar in the group, giving the sound a great, muddy propellant – which only gets stronger with the help of Simon Nava and Sam Clayton on congas, plus heavy organ and piano by Stu Garner, Jerry Aiello and Bill Payne. Includes the killer Latin groover "Conquistadores 74", plus "Stu", "Feels Good", "Fancy", "Stacy", Gengis" and "I Can Hear The Grass Grow". CD

✨✧ Isaac HayesIsaac Hayes Movement ... LP
Enterprise, 1970. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $11.99
Stellar soul from Isaac Hayes – just the sort of overblown masterpiece that made his early solo work on Stax Records so great! The record features only 4 long tracks – all of which go on in that slow-building style that Ike forged at the time – a mode that takes a few simple musical elements, slowly adds more instrumentation, then builds the whole thing up subtly and slyly while Hayes is talking rapturously over the top! There's a feel here that's nicely dramatic, but never in a kitschy, cloying way – a new statement of male soul masculinity, just right for the sophistication of the 70s. Titles include Ike's 12 minute covers of "Something" and "I Stand Accused", plus "One Big Unhappy Family", and "I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself". LP, Vinyl record album

Isaac HayesTo Be Continued ... LP
Enterprise, 1970. Very Good ... $14.99
One of Isaac Hayes early 70s classics for Stax Records – a perfectly conceived masterpiece of baroque soul that builds and builds as the set goes on! Ike heads up the instrumentation on electric piano, vibes, and plenty of percussion – but he's also getting strong support here from the Memphis Symphony Orchestra – who bring in a cool sort of depth to the record, and almost make it come off like some badass blacksploitation soundtrack! But the difference here is that the tracks are all long and drawn out – quite sophisticated stuff that often has Hayes extrapolating from a few basic lyrics, and moving into some bad-rapping territory of his own. Titles include the killer funky "Ike's Mood I", plus an incredible long version of "The Look Of Love", done in such a way that transforms the song into a prayer of darkness! Other tracks include "You've Lost That Lovin Feeling", "Runnin Out Of Fools", and "Our Day Will Come". LP, Vinyl record album

David PorterVictim Of The Joke? (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Enterprise/Craft, 1971. New Copy ... $22.99 24.99
Probably the best-remembered solo album from David Porter – one half of the famous Hayes/Porter team that ruled Stax Records in the 60s, although not as successful as an artist on his own as Isaac Hayes! Porter's style is a lot more adventurous – and this album's a wonderful illustration of that fact – an offbeat mix of dialogue, sound effects, and straighter soul vocals – put together as kind of a "suite", with a really unified feel. Like Hayes' baroque symphonies in soul, David's obviously trying to stretch past shorter song forms – and we really love his creative chances on the record. Titles include the legendary "I'm Afraid The Masquerade Is Over" – which has been sampled many times over the years – plus the tracks "Human", "Pretty Inside", "Storm In the Summertime", "When You Have To Sneak", and "If I Give It Up I Want It Back".

January TymeFirst Time From Memphis (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Enterprise/Big Pink (South Korea), 1969. New Copy ... $18.99 22.99
A rare rock set from Memphis – issued here on the Enterprise label of Stax Records – with lead vocals and keyboards from January Tyme – a female singer with a soulful vibe, almost more Bay Area than Memphis! In fact, there's probably a direct influence on the group from San Francisco hippies – but the set has a nicely special vibe of its own – kind of a freewheeling mix of roots-crafted instrumentation filtered through more psychedelic expressions – perfect for January's vocals! In fact, we'll go out of our way to say that she's one hell of a singer – the kind of artist who would have been huge with the right exposure – and who makes this set way more than just some overlooked indie rock record from the end of the 60s. Titles include "Are You Laughing", "I Could Never Love You", "Take This Time", "Love Surrounds Me", "The Music", "Sleepy Time Baby", and "Rainy Day Feeling". CD

✨✧ Isaac HayesBlack Moses ... CD
Enterprise/Stax, 1971. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Baroquely beautiful work from the Stax soul master – one of Isaac Hayes' heaviest albums of the 70s – and a record so massive, they needed 2LPs to contain the whole thing! The record's a culmination of the rich, full style of soulful arranging that Hayes had pioneered in his early solo work at Stax – a sound that's incredibly rich, filled with added voices and instrumentation, but totally dominated by Ike in a powerful, masculine approach to soul. Some tunes are familiar – like the album's versions of "Never Can Say Goodbye", "Close To You", "Going In Circles", "Never Gonna Give You Up", and "Need To Belong To Someone" – but they're all completely transformed here by Hayes with a bad-rapping, personal mode that's totally great. Album also features some great "Ike's Rap" cuts too! CD

✨✧ Isaac HayesHot Buttered Soul ... LP
Enterprise, 1969. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Amazing stuff from Isaac Hayes! Although Ike had first appeared on LP with the album "Introducing", this was the first record to really expose his true soul genius – and it was also the first release on Ike's successful sub-label at Stax, Enterprise Records. The record shows that for all the years Ike was working away on other folks' songs for Stax, he was carefully cooking up his own style of soul that would forever change the way we think about the music. Back in 1969, the album must have blown more than a few minds for its incredibly baroque approach to soul music – taking common elements like strings, piano, and funky rhythms, and stretching them out into long waves of sound that cycle over and over, working a sly subtle magic along with Ike's super-sexy vocals, and his monologue-heavy approach to popular tunes. The album features incredible remakes of pop hits "Walk On By" and "By The Time I Get To Phoenix" – both of which run for over 10 minutes, and which completely transform the songs into something way more than simple radio fodder. Also features the psychedelic soul masterpiece "Hyperbolicsyllabicsesquedalymistic", which has this crazy funky piano, and a messed-up sound that would make even George Clinton weep!

Enterprise, 1973. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A stunning live example of Ike's amazing baroque soul for Stax! Despite the schmaltz that you might expect from a live set recorded at Lake Tahoe, the album's a beautiful batch of long tracks with a very similar feel to Ike's other Stax work at the time – and it really gives you an excellent chance to hear how he could create these tiny little masterpieces even in a live setting, without any sort of studio trickery. Titles include "Do Your Thing", "Theme From The Men", "Look Of Love", "Theme From Shaft", "Ike's Rap V", "Windows Of The World", "Ain't No Sunshine", and "Type Thang". 2 LPs – in a cool die-cut cover!

✨✧ Barbara LewisMany Grooves Of Barbara Lewis ... LP
Enterprise/Stax, 1969. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic lost album from one of the 60's most under-rated female singers – done in a style that's far hipper than Barbara's work for Atlantic! The set's got a vibe that's totally great – proud and righteous – stepping out in a mode that shakes off the sweetness of Barbara's earlier records, and grooves into a much more mature 70s-styled groove – handled perfectly by producer Ollie McLaughlin! Although Barbara and Ollie hailed from Detroit, the set was actually recorded in Chicago at the end of the 60s – with arrangements by Mike Terry, and a sophisticated groove that has some of the bounce of records by JoAnn Garrett or Marlena Shaw at the time. Every cut is a winner – and the album's a no-filler gem that we treasure in our soul collection! The record includes of great tracks, including "Baby That's A No No", "Break Away", "Anyway", "You Made Me A Woman", "Oh, Be My Love", "How Can I Tell", and "Slip Away". Very very nice!

✨✧ Black NastyTalking To The People (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Enterprise/4 Men With Beards, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Excellent heavy funk from Stax! Black Nasty were one of the heaviest groups on the label – with a rock-solid guitar-based groove that went even farther than the Bar-Kays, who were no slouch in the guitar department themselves! The grooves are all slow to midtempo, with the band coming down hard on the downbeats, jamming away in a style that sounds more like heavy Detroit Westbound than sweetly soulful Memphis. Most all cuts have vocals – sung in a shouting style by the band that works well with the tripped-out hooks of the songs. This was the only album the band ever cut, but it's become a fast favorite among those who like their funk raw. Tracks include "We're Doin Our Thing", "Rushin Sea", "Booger The Hooker", "Black Nasty Boogie", "Nasty Soul", and "Getting Funky Round Here". LP, Vinyl record album

Enterprise, 1973. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
A great bit of funky guitar work from Freddie Robinson – a player who clearly started out with a bluesy backing, but managed a real super-dope sound by the time of his 70s work for Stax! Part of the sound is that Freddie's using a hollow-body electric – giving him a style that's a bit like Little Beaver on the best tracks. Freddie sings a bit on the set, but his guitar play's his strongest suit – and he's backed here by electric piano from Monk Higgins, and keyboards from Joe Sample! Tracks include "Smoking", "Off the Cuff", "Rivers Invitations", "Try It One Time", and "Medicine Man". LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny sings and plays harmonica, but the best side of the album is the backings – as they get nice and funky on the best tracks, and groove things the way you'd expect from Stax at the time!

Isaac HayesSpirit Of Memphis – 1962 to 1976 (4CD set – plus bonus 7 inch single) ... CD
Stax/Craft, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 4CD & 7 inch ... $46.99 59.99
An incredible tribute to the genius of Memphis Soul legend Issac Hayes – one that's overflowing with unreleased material, and presented in a totally cool package! The set's shaped like a 7" single box – and is book-like, with very detailed notes by Stax historian Robert Gordon, alongside page after page of vintage photos and other cool images, too. And inside some of the pages are 4 super-cool CDs – each of which has a different theme that further exposes Ike's genius! CD1 is titled "Soul Songwriter Soul Producer" – and features two dozen tracks that Hayes handled for Stax/Volt – material by The Astors, Danny White, David Porter, Floyd Newman, Johnnie Taylor, Charlie Rich, Judy Clay, The Charmels, Soul Children, Billy Eckstine, The Emotions, Ruby Johnson, and others. CD2 is titled "Volt & Enterprise Singles" – and features all the 7" tracks released by Isaac Hayes during his time on those labels – including two tracks done as a duet with David Porter, two more as Sir Isaac & The Do-Dads, and even a rare Radio Spot too! Things really get interesting on CD3, titled "Cover Man" – which features those cool, long extrapolations of other folks' songs that Hayes pioneered on his albums – but included here with unreleased material too. There's a great never-heard take on "Windows Of The World" – plus unreleased PUSH Black Expo material from 1970 – live takes on "Ten Commandments Of Love", "Just Want To Make Love To You/Rock Me Baby", "I Stand Accused", and "Stormy Monday". CD4 is maybe the coolest of the bunch – titled "Jam Master", with those long grooves that Ike did in the studio while putting together records. Almost all the tracks on CD4 are previously unissued – including "You've Made Me So Very Happy", "Black Militant's Place", "Ain't No Sunshine", "Do Your Thing (extended jam)", "Groove A Thon (extended jam)", and "Hung Up On My Baby (extended jam)". And if all that isn't enough, the set even comes with a cool 7" replica of Ike's first single for the Youngstown label – "Laura We're On Our First Go-Round". CD

Corbett vs. Dempsey, 2021. New Copy ... $42.99 50.00
An incredible package – one that brings together four rare publications by Sun Ra – printed words that are every bit as groundbreaking as his music – and which together represent the farther-flung corners of his vast cultural enterprise! The set represents each of the texts in the manner in which it was originally presented – save for the yellowing paper of the originals – so that two are small pamphlets, one is a slightly larger booklet, and the last is a huge stapled publication – each with a size, feel, and presentation that's like their originals! First up are the pamphlets that came with two early Ra records – Jazz By Sun Ra and Jazz In Silhouette – the first a booklet of liner notes with some poems, the second much more poetic, and originally done as a mimeograph that quickly deteriorated. Next is the famous Immeasurable Equation – a book of poetry from the mid 60s, which also features some writings by Ra on both his career and politics. Last is the huge Immeasurable Equation Vol 2 – a much larger book of poetry from 1972, presented on full sheets of paper stapled together with a textured cover of artwork. All four are impossibly hard to find – and in the format here, it's as if you had the originals in your hands, but in mint condition! Book

Yet the record is also way more than just a batch of tunes cooked up in a bedroom – as Richaid has collaborators on nearly every track – which expands his own work on piano, bass, and a variety of guitars – really helping to situation his raspy and compelling vocals amidst some jazzier touches on flute and tenor, guest vocals, percussion, and other elements along the way! The tunes are often really catchy and compelling, even if your command of Portuguese is as bad as ours – and it's clear that Ricardo really knows his way around a hook, in sort of a universal way – while still making music that's completely his own.

Strut (UK), 1990/1995/2014. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $28.99 29.99
A return to greatness for the legendary Tribe Records scene in Detroit – an underground movement that gave us some spiritual jazz classics in the 70s – then kept on making wonderful music at an even more underground level as the years went on! This set is a collection of work from three rare recordings issued during that time – all on CD only, and representing a maybe even more obscure side of this legacy than the Tribe albums of the 70s! First up is trombonist Phil Ranelin – heading up a group that includes Wendell Harrison on tenor and Marcus Belgrave on trumpet – two key Tribe partners from the early years – really stretching out on the titles "He The One We All Knew" and "Freddie's Groove", both recorded in 1990. Next is material from a 1995 performance led by pianist Harold McKinney – a set that's got an incredible depth of imagination and soul, almost as much as Harold McKinney's work of years back! The group is a wonderfully hip one – with former Tribe artists Wendell Harrison on tenor and clarinet and Marcus Belgrave on trumpet – plus additional players who include Kiane Zawadi on trombone, Reggie Workman on bass, Francisco Mora on percussion, and Jimmy Owens on trumpet. There's a bit of vocals, but never that much – and most tracks are long and open – freely exploratory, but never too far out or avant-styled – just soulful and spiritual, in the true Tribe Records tradition! Titles include "Wide & Blue", "The Slave Ship Enterprise", "Juba", "Libra Ahora", and "Conjure Man". Last is a set of tracks recorded in 2014 by keyboardist Pamela Wise – a record that really carries forward the Tribe Records spirit from the 70s! The overall approach is a bit more contemporary, but the set's still got all the best feel of a classic indie album from the underground – played and penned by Wise in close collaboration with reedman Wendell Harrison, a frequent partner of Pamela's on a variety of projects, and one of the driving forces of Tribe back in the day! Wise plays both acoustic and electric keyboards, and sometimes sings just slightly – although most of the album is instrumental – and in addition to Harrison's work on tenor and bass clarinet, the album features trumpet, guitar, and lots of percussion. Titles include "Ode To Black Mothers", "Hometown", and "Marcus Garvey". LP, Vinyl record album

A stunner of a collection of reggae sides from 1974-1979 – records made during the creative peak of Tommy Cowan's Talent Corporation enterprise – a company engineered by the voice of late 60s rocksteady pioneers the Jamaicans to give exposure to many of the incredible artists that helped lay down the true sound of Jamaica for many years to come! Tommy Cowan formed the Talent Corporation with partners Warwick Lyn and Gayman Alberga to promote local Jamaican music on a level that was being done for the popular artists from the States at the time – with recording sessions mostly produced and arranged by Cowan in his benchmark fashion. Here he's crafted perfect little numbers with innovators such as Jacob Miller, Abyssinians, Augustus Pablo, Dennis Brown, Devon Irons and many more! 20 tracks in all, including the immortal "Jerusalem" (extended version) by Devon Irons, "Love Comes And Goes" by Abyssinians, "Ghetto On Fire" by Jacob Miller, "Mother Country" by Little Madness, "School Tonight" by Desi Roots, "The Way" by Augustus Pablo, "The Road Is Rough" by Leroy Smart, "Life Goes In Circles" by Dennis Brown, "False Rumour" by Two Rasta Man, "False Rumour Version" by King Tubby, "Natty Sings A Hit Song" by Dillinger, "Dub Songs" by Dillinger and King Tubby, and more!

✨✧ Invisible Man's BandReally Wanna See You ... LP
Boardwalk, 1981. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
A great later effort from the 5 Stairsteps family – a later offshoot of the initial enterprise, still working here under the production helm of father Clarence Burke! Keni Burke's a member of the group, and the work here has a very similar groove to his own RCA material of the time – offset with some warmer elements that also echo the previous Stairsteps records on Warner, especially given that a number of the cuts have group vocals. Keni's bass does a nice job of kicking in the grooves, and the album's got a nicely warm sound for the time – almost more late 70s group funk than early 80s boogie. Titles include the sweet harmony track called "Along The Way" – plus "Party Time", "Circles", "Rated X", "Really Wanna See You", and "Same Thing". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ O'JaysSurvival/Family Reunion (SACD multi-channel disc) ... CD
Philadelphia International/Vocalion (UK), 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Two Philly classics from the O'Jays – back to back on a single CD! Survival is filled with heady sounds from The O'Jays – a set that continues the more righteous side of the style they developed on early 70s Philadelphia International – a great mix of modes that sometimes has the trio sharing some of the political spirit of The Temptations with Norman Whitfield, and sometimes has the group really shining on the kind of heartbreaking ballads that are perfect for the maturing harmony style they were hitting – a mode that was light years past the group's sound just a few years before! The message cuts are mostly upbeat and grooving, and are balanced nicely with the ballads – on titles that include "Survival", "Let Me Make Love To You", "What Am I Waiting For", "Give The People What They Want", "Rich Get Richer", and "Never Break Us Up". Family Reunion is a record with a great sense of righteousness and groove – the key mix that made the O'Jays so great back in the day – and which really helped put the Philly International enterprise on the map! The album's miles from the group's simple harmony soul roots – even though those were pretty darn great – and it blends together soaring backings with a sweet Gamble/Huff finish, and really makes some magic in the way the whole thing comes off. Titles include the great mellow ballad "Stairway To Heaven", the party groovers "Livin For The Weekend" and "I Love Music" – and the cuts "Unity", "You & Me", and "She's Only A Woman". CD

✨✧ VariousBring Flowers To The World – 20 Ultra Cool Transworld Popsike Gems 1967 to 1972 ... CD
Misty Lane (Italy), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Tripped out pop from around the globe – a host of wonderful tunes from Germany, Greece, Holland, Nigeria, England, and Italy – most of which feature lyrics in English, and a sound that's right up there with the best of the American popsike underground of the late 60s! As with the US volume of this set, the styles here are totally great – psyche-influenced pop at the core, but often carried off with some unique instrumental flourishes – little touches, twists, and turns that often give way to some funkier rhythms at the bottom of the tunes – almost giving a Cherrystones sort of groove to the package. Tracks include "Madman" by Daltons, "Where Is My Mind" by Pesky Gee, "It's A Summer Day" by Magic Cycle, "Every Second Day" by Bobby & Laurie, "No Part Of It" by Boots, "Loverock" by Strangers, "Try To Realize" by Rob Hoeke R&B Groep, "When I See Babette" by Hunters, "Groovy Things" by Magic Cycle, and "Morning Of The Velvet Fog" by Young Enterprise.

✨✧ VariousRojac Story – The Best Of Rojac & Tayster ... CD
Rojac, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Funky sounds from the Harlem scene – an incredibly rich collection of work from the Rojac and Tayster labels – a set so massive, it's like finding a box of rare funky 45s and deep soul singles in the back of some old record store! The package offers up way more work than we might have expected from our knowledge of a few key funk classics from the labels – a treasure trove of under-discovered gems from the grittiest years of the New York scene – most of them cut in the pre-disco years, with raw edges that almost feel more like southern soul and funk than other work from the Big Apple! This overstuffed set also comes with a sweet booklet of notes – really telling the tale of the labels and related enterprises – plus 44 tracks that include "Where Were You" by Kim Tolliver, "Meet Me Halfway" by Lillie Bryant, "Old Love Never Dies" by Big Maybelle, "Something Special About My Baby" by Clarence Reid, "I Love My Baby" by International GTOs, "No Better For Ya" by Jo Armstead, Love Love Love" by Chuck Flamingo, "Christmas In Vietnam" by Private Charles Bowens & The Gentlemen From Tigerland, "Everybody's Going Wild" by Curtis Lee & The KCPs, "Lovin Lies" by Third Guitar, "This & That" by Jo Armstead, "Don't Lose Your Groove" by Lavell Hardy, "Nwanne Nwanne Nwanne" by Aleke Kanonu & Tolbert The Miracle Man, "Lucky Man" by Damn Sam The Miracle Man, "Baby Don't Cry" by Third Guitar, and "Whip Ya" by Chuck A Luck & The Lovemen Ltd.

✨✧ Jet Powers/Space AceJet Powers/Space Ace Collected Works – January 1951 Issues 1 to 4 & 1952 Issue 5 (hardcover) ... Book
PS Artbooks (UK), Early 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
That's a great Bob Powell cover image on the front – and there's lots more of Bob's great artwork inside the issues too – along with early work by Wally Wood and Al Williamson, plus more by Dick Ayers and Fred Guardineer! These top-shelf talents made Jet Powers one of the better space action titles of the time – and four issues of his own magazine are served up here alongside one more of the similar Space Ace – all issued by the great Magazine Enterprises – a company that did a wonderful job with material like this. There's a bit of a Charlton Comics vibe to some of Jet's stories – but the quality is more driven by 40s action modes – and the book does a great job of the reproductions of both the contents and covers.

✨✧ VariousMicron Music Presents – Every Mouth Must Be Fed 1973 to 1976 ... LP
Pressure Sounds (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
One of the deeper collections we've seen from Pressure Sounds – great stuff and largely overlooked numbers from the vaults of the Micron Music label – with crisply chopping rhythms, steady harmonies, and echoey dub from Junior Byles, I Roy, Bobby Ellis, Tommy McCook and many more! Micron isn't among the more famous Jamaican enterprises of the period but the tunes more than live up to the pedigree of its better known peers – with Pete Weston in the production booth for many of the tunes, and a couple with Bunny Lee and Lee Perry at the controls. There's an impressive range of artists and styles, and a number of tunes that have more than a little bit of Motown sounds in the mix, which we totally love. Titles include "Conference At Waterhouse" by Jah Sticah, "Lorna Banana", "Ain't Too Proud To Beg" and "Last Of The Love Songs" by Junior Byles, "Message From The Top" by I Roy, "Revolution Is For The Chinaman" by Pete Weston & The Flames, "Ska Baby" by Bobby Ellis, "Black Organ" by Blacker Black , "Our Rights" by Defenders, "Tribute To Muhammad Ali" by Tommy McCook and more. 20 tracks in all. LP, Vinyl record album
