Etta JamesEtta James Rocks The House (colored vinyl – with bonus tracks) ... LP
Argo/Jackpot, 1964. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
Searing stuff – easily one of Etta James' greatest albums! The set is a non-stop jam, recorded live at the New Era Club in Nashville before a small and screaming crowd – a perfect performance all the way through, one that showcases Etta as she rarely sounded on vinyl during the 1960s. The whole album runs away like a train on fire, and it's filled with incredibly lively readings of tracks like "Something's Got A Hold On Me", "Baby What You Want Me To Do", "Money", "Seven Day Fool", and "Woke Up This Morning" – all taken at versions longer than the usual under-3 minute single takes! Also includes 3 bonus tracks not on the original LP releases: "Ain't That Lovin' You Baby", "All I Could Do Is Cry" and "I Just Want To Make Love To You". LP, Vinyl record album

Etta JamesQueen Of Soul (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Argo/Elemental (Spain), Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
Queen of Soul is right! Heck, on these early albums, Etta practically invented soul – or at least invented a deep soul style of singing that would be taken up by countless other female singers during the 60s, but rarely matched with this kind of brilliance. Straight up beautiful stuff! The arrangements are uncredited, but we think they're probably by Riley Hampton – who did so much of Etta's other wonderful work in the early 60s. The recordings for sure took place at points between '62 and '64, mostly in Chicago, with couple in New York and one in Nashville. One other thing that is crystal clear about the sessions is that she had access to the very best musicians and the best sound possible – all you need is a listen to know that! The album's an all-solid, all-soul record with loads of obscure tunes and not a bit of filler! Titles include "Flight 101", "Bobby Is His Name", "Breaking Point", "Mello Fellow", "Do Right", and "Somewhere Out There". LP, Vinyl record album

Etta JamesWho's Blue? – Rare Chess Recordings Of The 60s & 70s ... CD
Chess/Kent (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
A far-reaching set of hard-to-find 60s & 70s recordings by the great Etta James for Chess/Cadet – ranging from vibrant funk to slow cooking R&B, stripped down brassy blues and string accented jazzy numbers – diverse stuff held together by all around impeccable craft and the flat out amazing singing of Etta! The recordings were cut from the mid 60s to early 70s for the most part, and made in Chicago, Muscle Shoals, Nashville, New Jersey and LA. Such a sprawling collection would bog down a lesser singer, but in this case it shows just how versatile Etta James is, even if the records didn't always hit the charts. 24 tracks in all: "Only A Fool", "Seven Day Fool", "You're A Fool" (Etta slays a lotta fools in this set), "Fire", "My Man Is Together", "Let Me Know", "Nobody But You", "Take Out Some Insurance", "Sweet Memories", "Do Right", "Can't Shake It" and many more.

✨✧ Etta JamesEtta James Collected (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Chess/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A great little collection – one that's really heavy on the hard-hitting soul tracks that Etta James cut for Chess Records in the 60s, plus some nice bits from other years too! Etta's one of those singers that's almost a genre unto herself – like Aretha Franklin, a vocalist with tremendous power in the right setting – which she definitely finds here, in a mix of modes that move between deep soul and more sophisticated settings, but always in ways that allow the bluer currents in Etta's voice to come to the forefront. Sometimes she's a growling tiger, other points she hits a heartbreaking quality that's amazing – and the huge set features 36 tracks in all, with titles that include "In The Basement", "Spoonful", "The Blues Is My Business", "Feelin Uneasy", "Only Women Bleed", "Losers Weepers", "Security", "The Wallflower", "All I Could Do Was Cry", "At Last", "Tell Mama", "Pushover", "Damn Your Eyes", "Do Right Woman", "I Miss You", "Say It Isn't So", and "Born Under A Bad Sign".

Sugar Pie De SantoGo Go Power – The Complete Chess Singles 1961 to 1966 ... CD
Chess/Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
A much-needed look at the mighty Sugar Pie DeSanto – a singer who really rocked Chess Records back in the 60s! DeSanto came to the label already boasting one hell of a groove – a rock-solid sense of rhythm that made all of her tunes groovers right from the get-go – and a raw vocal power that easily rivaled, if not beat, that of Etta James – her labelmate at Chess, and partner on a few duet tracks here! The collection's a non-stop soul party throughout – as upbeat as Northern Soul, but with plenty of deep soul elements as well – and it's the first time many of these cuts have been brought together on CD, and certainly never before as wonderful as this. Kent serves up some great notes and vintage photos with the package – the latter of which show Sugar Pie in action on stage, clearly one of the sexiest singers to work the circuit back in the 60s! Titles include "In The Basement (parts 1 & 2)", "Soulful Dress", "Witch For A Night", "Ask Me", "Good Timin", "Mr & Mrs", "Mama Didn't Raise No Fools", "Crazy Lovin", "There's Gonna Be Trouble", "Jump In My Chest", "Somewhere Down The Line", "Use What You Got", "Never Love A Stranger", "I Love You So Much", "Go Go Power", and "I Don't Wanna Fuss".

LuluShout – The Complete Decca Recordings ... CD
Decca/RPM (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
If you only know Lulu from her American recordings of the late 60s, you've got a lot to learn – as the British singer was a real powerhouse right from the start, blasting forth with a strongly soulful sound on these early recordings for Decca! Lulu's got a raspiness to her voice that really sets her apart from some of her contemporaries – a definite influence from R&B, maybe even Etta James – often with these raw, rocking backings that really match that sound – in ways that are very different than some of the fuller orchestrations used for other UK girl singers. As the Decca years move on, songs and arrangements get fuller and more sophisticated – but the strong Lulu vocal approach still holds on wonderfully – as you'll hear in this huge collection of 42 tracks in all. Titles include "Satisfied", "Am I In Love", "Here Comes The Night", "I'll Come Running Over", "She Will Break Your Heart", "Dream Lover", "Night Time Is The Right Time", "You'll Never Leave Her", "Stubborn Kinda Fellow", "Lies", "Don't Answer Me", "You Touch Me Baby", and "Nothing Left To Do But Cry".

MCA/Geffen, 1985. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 21.99
Go back to the future once again – with a sparkling set of 80s tracks that includes a fair bit of standout rock and pop material! Big highlights here are the tunes "Power Of Love" and "Back In Time" by Huey Lewis & The News – and other 80s tracks include "Time Bomb Town" by Lindsey Buckingham and "Heaven Is One Step Away" by Eric Clapton. Album also features some more 50s-styled material – including "The Wallflower (Dance With Me Henry)" by Etta James and "Night Train" by Marvin Berry & The Starlighters – plus the film's famous performance of "Johnny B Goode" by Marty McFly with the Starlighters.

VariousHave Mercy! – The Songs Of Don Covay ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $13.99 19.99
A wonderful testament to songwriting mastery of Don Covay – one of greatest singing and songwriting double threats ever – and if you didn't already know that, this excellent compilation will set you straight! No tribute to Covay the songwriter would be complete without Aretha Franklin's "Chain Of Fools" – but the set actually goes a lot deeper, with straight-up classic soul treasures, raucous R&B, stirring vocal tunes, some funk and funky rock. The reach is impressive, with the aforementioned Aretha hit, plus songs recorded by Wilson Pickett, Etta James, Joe Tex, The Staple Singers, Wanda Jackson, The Wailers, Little Richard, Gene Vincent, Dee Clark, Connie Francis and more! 26 tracks in all, completed by a great set of notes: with "Three Time Loser" by Wilson Pickett, "You're Good For Me" by Lena Horne, "Don't Drive Me Away" by Ben E King, the funky gem "Sookie Sookie" by Tina Britt, "She Said Yeah" by Joe Tex, "Watch The One Who Brings You The News" by Millie Jackson, "Long Tall Shorty" by The Graham Bond Originization, "Mon Cherie Au Revoir" by Arlene Smith and more.

✨✧ Lyn RomanMany Faces Of Lyn Roman ... LP
Columbia, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A bit jazz, a bit soul, and a great little set from Lyn Roman – a lesser-known vocalist from the 60s, but one who could have easily cracked the mainstream! The set's in a space that's somewhere between Etta James and Nina Simone, produced with a bit of a country soul feel by Clyde Otis – who uses fuller strings alongside bluesier rhythms, plus some backing vocals that link the record to similar efforts from Brook Benton or Ray Charles! Lyn's got vocal pipes that really burst out strongly at times – searching her way through the mellower tunes especially, in ways that remind us of James, but are slightly more poised as well. Titles include "On Green Dolphin Street", "Fly Me To The Moon", "A Certain Smile", "The End Of A Love Affair", "Imagination", and "Moon River". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousSweet Inspiration – The Songs Of Dan Penn & Spooner Oldham ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A treasure trove of wonderful tunes – all written by the legendary southern soul team of Dan Penn and Spooner Oldham! The pair rarely entered the spotlight themselves, but contributed countless compositions that helped forge the sound of southern soul in the 60s – classic tunes that made the music of Memphis and Muscle Shoals even more mighty than anyone might have expected – thanks to a depth of feeling, sensitivity of emotion, and a trademark undercurrent of sadness that really helped the music set a new level at the time! This collection is the first to really do justice to the full range of the Penn/Oldham catalog – a beautiful batch of soul singles from a variety of different 60s labels – laid out back to back, in a breathtaking tapestry of soulful music. Titles include "Feed The Flame" by Ted Taylor, "Take Me" by Solomon Burke, "I'm Your Puppet" by Dionne Warwick, "Out Of Left Field" by Percy Sledge, "Cry Like A Baby" by Arthur Alexander, "It Tears Me Up" by Jeanne Newman, "I Met Her In Church" by Tony Borders, "I Need Someone" by The Wallace Brothers, "In The Same Old Way" by Arthur Conley, "Let It Happen" by James Carr, "Are You Never Coming Home" by Sandy Posey, and "I Worship The Ground You Walk On" by Etta James.

✨✧ VariousLes Hits 1969 – Salut Les Copains ... CD
Europe 1/Universal (France), 1969. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A very cool look at the sound of 1969 – not as it was on our side of the Atlantic, but as it played out on radio in France! The 2CD set is a very hip mix of music – some French tunes mixed with American and British rock and soul, plus some other European cuts too – all of which makes for a really great sense of surprise, and a vibe that's way way different than the sorts of oldies set you might find in the US market! There's 32 tracks in all – and titles include "La Rua Madureira" by Nino Ferrer, "C'Est Extra" by Leo Ferre, "Je T'Aime Moi Non Plus" by Jane Birkin & Serge Gainsbourg, "Wight Is Wight" by Michel Delpech, "Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye" by Steam, "Tout Eclate Tout Explose" by Claude Francois, "It's Five O'Clock" by Aphrodite's Child, "Eloise" by Barry Ryan, "Only The Strong Survive" by Jerry Butler, "Pierre Et Sarah" by Le Quartet De Lyon, "I Want You Back" by Jackson 5, "Un Jour Un Enfant" by Frida Boccara, "Mother Popcorn" by James Brown, "Ma Vie C'Est Un Manage" by Nicoletta, "River Man" by Nick Drake, and "Ou Est La Fete Suzie" by Herbert Leonard.

✨✧ Rodney FranklinIn The Center/You'll Never Know/Rodney Franklin/Endless Flight (bonus track) ... CD
Columbia/Robinsongs (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Four soulful fusion classics from keyboardist Rodney Franklin – all together in a single set! First up is In The Center – wonderful keyboard work from the amazing Rodney Franklin – a player who sounds equally great on acoustic and electric piano! This album does a wonderful job of mixing them both – showing Rodney's more sensitive side on a few acoustic numbers, but then really taking off in a much more groove-based mode for the electric ones – which have a soaring, spacious style that's in that best blend of fusion and soul that was going down at Columbia in the late 70s – but with some spacier Bob James touches too! Most of the cuts were arranged by Byron Olsen, who's got an equally sensitive ear as Franklin – and although there's a bit of vocals on the record, most of the focus is on instrumental grooves – especially Rodney's work on the keys. Titles include the classics "I Like The Music Make It Hot", "Spanish Flight", and "On The Path" – plus "Yours", "Life Moves On", and the extended "Spring Suite". You'll Never Know is fully-formed genius from the amazing Rodney Franklin – one of the best keyboard stars to emerge from the late 70s scene! Franklin's got a great talent for balancing influences from jazz and soul in ways that are similar to contemporaries George Duke and Bobby Lyle – and like both of those players, he still stands strong in jazz, but makes some key nods to soul music on this set – adding in a bit of vocals where needed, and moving into some R&B-drenched fusion lines that all sound pretty darn hip! As on previous records, Rodney plays both acoustic and electric keys – blending them wonderfully for a very deep sound – and the group behind him features some especially nice work on reeds, which bring sharper edges to some of the best tracks on the set. There's a wonderfully deep feel to the whole thing – way more than you'd expect for a major label release at the time – and titles include "Felix Leo", "The Watcher", "The Groove", "Journey", "You'll Never Know", "Return", and "Parkay Man". Next is the self-titled Rodney Franklin – tremendous work from Rodney Franklin – one of our favorite soulful fusion players from the end of the 70s! The album's a keyboard delight through and through – and Rodney plays both acoustic and electric piano, often on the same track – which creates this nicely expanded sound that works well with the album's tight arrangements! There's a fair bit of soul in the mix too – some rhythms that make a few numbers great groovers, courtesy of Tom Tom arrangements – and some other full moments handled by Patrick Williams. Titles include a wonderful version of "Windy City" – the cut you might know from a classic Carl Davis recording – plus "On The Path", "I Like The Music Make It Hot", "Life Moves On", "Creation", and "In The Center". Endless Flight is a brilliant mix of jazz, soul, and fusion – smoothed together nicely, but never in a way that's slick or commercial! Franklin's got a keen ear that lets him sit on both sides of the fence wonderfully – in a way that so many other players tried in later years, but never managed to do without losing their groove or selling out too much. Part of the strength of the album is the way that it mixes together acoustic and electric keys from track to track – deepening the spirit of the album through a good sense of pacing and mood, and also offsetting vocal tracks with some key instrumental numbers. Tom Washington produced and heavily helped in the arrangements – and titles include "Vibrations", "Benetta", "Cancion Para Mi Mama", "Dance Tonight", "Endless Flight", "Return To The Source", "Mensaje De Dios", and a surprisingly great funky take on "Hill Street Blues". Includes one bonus track – "The Groove (single version)". CD
