Everything But The GirlEden (180 gram half speed master pressing) ... LP
Blanco Y Negro/Buzzin' Fly (UK), 1985. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99 28.99
Beautiful – and a record that still sounds pretty darn great today! When Tracy Thorn and Ben Watt first teamed up to produce this tight little jazz pop gem, little did they know that they'd unleash a landmark sound that would forever transform the face of modern music – a great breath of real acoustic energy in an 80s landscape that was way too overcome with synthesizers and programs! The record mixes jazz and Brit pop into a swirling blend of beautiful little tracks – all graced by the incredibly smart early writing of Thorn and Watt, and some spare arrangements that really retain all the charm of their earlier solo projects too – especially that mature songwriting that made them great from the start. Titles include "Another Bridge", "Bittersweet", "Spice Of Life", "Crabwalk", "Fascination", "Frost & Fire", and "Soft Touch". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ PleasureGlide – The Essential Selection 1975 to 1982 ... CD
Fantasy/Decision, 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $6.99 17.98
A jazzy combo with a heart of soul – and a group who may well be one of our favorite funk groups from the 70s! Pleasure has an amazing way of being tight, yet never slick or commercial – a sound that's right on the money, but far from the mainstream too – which has kept them at the top of the stacks for crate-diggers and rare groove collectors for years! This sweet double-length package is a very well-chosen set of their gems for Fantasy records, and a few later tracks for RCA – a really expansive look at all that's great about the group – with classics mixed with overlooked album cuts and some great funky numbers you might have missed otherwise. Nearly everything Pleasure ever cut is fantastic, but this set is even more fantastic than the rest – and features 25 titles that include "Bouncy Lady", "Dust Yourself Off", "Joyous", "Ghettos Of The Mind", "Only You", "Sassafras Girl", "Glide", "Farewell Goodbye", "Special Things", "Thoughts Of Old Flames", "Give It Up", "Sending My Love", "Stone Love", "Glide (special disco rmx)", "Space Is The Place", "Living Without You", "Let's Dance", and a previously unreleased "Foxy Lady (disco version)".

White PlainsWhite Plains – The Collection (White Plains/When You Are A King/bonus tracks) (3CD set) ... CD
Decca/7T's (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 3CD ... $26.99 30.99
A big set of work from a group who are known for one big global hit – a track that everyone knows, but never can remember who did it – and a band that has a heck of a lot more to offer than you might expect! First up is the group's self titled album, White Plains – a power pop powerhouse by a group who will forever be remembered for the classic title track to this set, but who also manage to deliver the goods all the way through! The whole album's a stunning showcase for the work of Roger Greenaway and Roger Cook – producers and co-writers of some of the album's best tunes – which have a jaunty, catchy vibe that really prefaces 70s AM radio, and does a great job of building a bridge forward from earlier 60s pop styles. Some of the themes are deeper, but others are lighter – and the production has this way of fusing everything together in this monstrous wall of sound, but without ever sounding as slick as mainstream pop might a few years later. Titles include the classic "My Baby Loves Lovin", plus "In A Moment Of Madness", "You've Got Your Troubles", "Today I Killed A Man I Didn't Know", "Sunny Honey Girl", "When Tomorrow Comes Tomorrow", and "Young Birds Fly". Next is the album When You Are A King – a set that's almost ever bit as great, with an equally well-crafted approach to pop – on titles that include "Julie Do Ya Love Me", "Home Loving Man", "When You Are A King", "An Eye For The Main Chance", "The World Gets Better With Love", "Noises In My Head", and "I'll Go Blind". CD3 features rare tracks by related groups Crucible and Zenith, plus more bonus tracks – and in total, the set features 22 non-LP tracks – titles that include "A Simple Man", "Look To See", "I Can't Stop", "I Need Your Everlasting Love", "Gonna Miss Her Mississippi", "Wanna Fall In Love", "Plains", "A Fool That Was In Love", "Dance With You", and "Silent Words".

Tammy WynetteYour Good Girl's Gonna Go Bad/Take Me To Your World – I Don't Wanna Play House ... CD
Epic/Morello (UK), 1967/1968. New Copy ... $12.99 16.99
A pair of early gems from Tammy Wynette – back to back on a single CD! On Your Good Girl's Gonna Go Bad, Tammy does her fragile, sadness soaked magic on many tunes that had already done the rounds with Ray Price, Loretta Lynn, Buck Owens and others – and makes them all her own – thanks to her immortal vocal talent and perfectly sympathetic production by Billy Sherill. Sherill would never do better then he did for Tammy Wynette – and his production here makes the album a classic – on titles that include "Apartment #9", "Don't Come Home A Drinkin' (With Lovin' On Your Mind)", "Don't Touch Me", "There Goes My Everything", "Send Me No Roses", "Your Good Girl's Gonna Go Bad", "I'm Not Mine To Give", "I Wound Easy (But I Heal Fast)", and "Almost Persuaded". Take Me To Your World/I Won't Wanna Play House is an album that's named after the two Billy Sherrill singles that came before – but one that's also filled with other great material from the young Tammy Wynette in her prime! Tammy's got this style here that's partly in the older tearstained mode of earlier country singers, but she also rises up with a bit more pride as well – set up by Sherrill's production in a mode that's as nicely understated as it is emotionally powerful. In addition to "Take Me To The World" and "I Don't Wanna Play House", other tunes include "The Phone Call", "It's My Way", "Fuzzy Wuzzy Ego", "Good", "Ode To Billie Jo", "Or Is It Love", "Broadminded", and "Jackson Ain't A Very Big Town".

✨✧ VariousSun Shines Here – The Roots Of Indie Pop 1980 to 1984 (3CD set) ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), Early 80s. New Copy 3CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really lovely little collection, and a set that digs deep into a time when things were moving from the fringes to the mainstream in British music – but with groups that still mostly had a real edge and a strong sense of invention! The work here is setting the scene for some of the big global hits to come in the second half of the 80s and start of the 90s – as the English experiments of the post-punk years were finding ways to be a bit more tuneful, but without shaking off the politics, songwriting, and production techniques that made them so revolutionary at the time. As with other Cherry Red box sets, the track list here is superb – and supported by an equally superb set of notes – in a package of 74 tracks that includes work by The Loft, Higsons, Twinsets, Yeah Yeah Noh, Scritti Politti, The Nightingales, Weekend, Everything But The Girl, Friends Again, Pulp, Jane & Barton, Wah Heat, Teardrop Explodes, Scars, Mo-Dettes, Girls At Our Best, Vic Godard & The Subway Set, Josef K, Wild Wans, Jowe Head, Art Objects, Monochrome Set, Marine Girls, Trixie's Big Red Motorbike, In Embrace, Dislocation Dance, Microdisney, Grab Grab The Haddock, Jasmine Minks, Pale Fountains, and many others!

East Of UndergroundHell Below (East Of Underground/Soap/Black Seeds/Sound Trek) (3CD set) ... CD
US Army/Now Again, 1971/1972. New Copy 3CD ... $12.99 24.98
Proof that the US Army had plenty going on during the 70s – as you'll hear from this killer set of military-produced grooves from East Of Underground! The set goes way past the previous East Of Underground reissue – to feature work by the groups Soap, Black Seeds, and Sound Trek – all wrapped up in a beautiful package that's as visually pleasing as the music is funky! The cuts here were all recorded by US Army servicemen during the height of the Vietnam war – as Army-issued albums designed to encourage recruitment (as if a few funky grooves could help offset the bad press the war was getting on TV!) But despite that odd origin, the music here is all pretty great – mostly covers of familiar tunes from the time, but recorded with a nicely gritty quality that's mighty nice – and which makes the overall feel of the records like digging into some lost small studio tapes – ala Numero! Now Again have done a great job of putting together the whole package, too – contributing a wealth of notes and photos, and really digging deep into the scene in which these unique records were created. Not only that, but the packaging also replicates the style of the original odd releases too! The set features a CD each of music by East Of Underground and Soap – plus another CD that brings together an unusual double LP by the groups Black Seeds and Sound Trek. Titles include "I Just Want To Celebrate", "Kool & The Gang", "Walking In The Rain", "Backstabbers", "I Love Everything About You", "Ain't No Sunshine", "Go Outside In The Rain", "Black Magic Woman", "Hell Below", "Higher", "Popcorn/Santana", "Walk On By", "Java Girl", and "Get Together".

Four TopsFour Tops Live ... LP
Motown, 1966. Near Mint- ... $11.99
One of the hardest, rawest Four Tops album on 60s Motown – a unique live session, recorded at the Roostertail Nightclub in Detroit – with a sound that shows that the Tops could maybe shine even more away from the studio! Levi Stubbs' leads are especially incredible – not just a powerful force at the head of the songs, but a key factor in driving the energy of the performance – as he reaches out to the crowd with his calls, and whips the rest of the group into a soulful frenzy – no matter what the material. The set includes live takes on Four Tops classics like "It's The Same Old Song", "Reach Out I'll Be There", and "Baby I Need Your Loving" – plus some nice material that's less-iconic, including "The Girl From Ipanema", "I'll Turn To Stone", "I Like Everything About You", and "It's Not Unusual".

SpiceLet There Be Spice ... LP
TSG/P-Vine (Japan), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $42.99 About January 15, 2022
Not a spice girl – as you might think from the cover – but a great male harmony soul group from the 70s, and one who are equally well skilled on ballads and groovers! The album's a lost gem from the New York scene of the disco years – and while some of the tracks definitely have the group hitting the clubs, there's also a deeper soul vibe overall – that wonderful harmony mode that was so great from New Jersey and Philly acts just a few years before! There's a slightly rough quality to the arrangements that makes the whole thing hit home way more than polished group soul of the time – a great indie vibe that reminds us of some of the best rare soul on the All-Platinum label. Titles include "Do It Nice", "Happy Music", "Everything Is You", "Fool In Love", "You've Got Me Girl", and "The Last Time". LP, Vinyl record album

Rough Trade/Lantern (Italy), 1982. New Copy (reissue)... About January 21, 2022
A classic album of jazzy tunes from the British pop scene of the early 80s – and the kind of work that really helped set the stage for the later Acid Jazz movement in London! Weekend's a combo that features players from Young Marble Giants, Working Week, and other Brit groups of the period who were strongly committed to the warmer sounds of music in a world that was often a bit colder and more post-punk – and they work here in styles that borrow heavily from bossa and certainly have a bit of jazz – all gentle pop of a style shared by contemporaries Antena, Everything But The Girl, and Kalima. Titles include "Sleepy Theory", "End Of The Affair", "Life In the Day Of", "Drum Beat For Baby", and "Summerdays". LP, Vinyl record album

Cherry Red (UK), Mid 80s. New Copy 3CD ... $29.99 38.99
A amazing look at the British indie scene during one of its greatest stretches – the mid 80s period when it seemed like new labels and new bands were springing up every week! The 2CD set takes its name from the influential C86 collection put together by NME at the time to showcase some of the best work – but this version expands the lineup to a whopping 72 tracks in all, and really stretches the scope to include some real lost gems. There's plenty of great work here from a time before the scene got mis-led by dance rhythms and too many stimulants – a cornucopia of long-lost labels and groups – most of them jangle pop wonders with great talents for penning simple, catchy little tunes! Titles include "World's No Place" by The Jasmine Minks, "Everything's Going Right" by The Avons, "Don't Slip Up" by Meat Whiplash, "Billy Liar" by North Of Cornwalls, "Outback Jazz" by Blue Aeroplanes, "Run To The Temple" by Bogshed, "Therese" by The Bodines, "Happy Head" by Mighty Lemon Drops, "Velocity Girl" by Primal Scream, "This Boy Can Wait" by The Wedding Present, "New Way" by Big Blame, "Console Me" by We've Got A Fuzzbox, "Inside" by 14 Iced Bears, "Darkess & Colour" by The Railway Children, and "Hedonist Hat" by Pigbros.

VariousScared To Get Happy – A Story Of Indie Pop 1980 to 1989 (5CD set) ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), 1980s. New Copy 5 CDs ... Just Sold Out!
A sprawling 5CD box set of benchmark 80s indie pop from the UK – chronologically sequenced (for the most part) from the beginning to the end of the decade – with so many brilliant songs both straight-up classic and others that are relatively forgotten! Incredible stuff from the post punk guitar years, to dreamier and more psych steeped sounds, to the dancier grooves late in the decade that laid the groundwork for the 90s. Classics and early singles by Prefab Sprout, TV Personalities, Everything But The Girl, Pulp, Biff Bang Pow!, Primal Scream, The Wedding Present, The Soup Dragons, House Of Love, The Shamen, The Rosehips, Pop Will Eat Itself, The Wonder Stuff, The Stone Roses, Inspiral Carpets, James, The Jesus & Mary Chain, Lloyd Cole & The Commotion, The Darling Buds, The Boo Radleys and many, many more! More than 130 tracks in all – with a thick booklet of notes! Kind of like a Nuggets for the indie 80s British scenes! SO many great songs, but to name a few: "Revolutionary Spirit" by Wild Swans, "The Missionary" by Josef K, "Lions In The Garden" by Prefab Sprout, "A Picture Of Dorian Gray (Live)" by TV Personalities, "Just Like Honey (demo October '84)" by Jesus & Mary Chain, "Oblivious" by Aztec Camera, "Velocity Girl" by Primal Scream, "Go Out And Get 'Em, Boy" by The Wedding Present, "If I Said" by The Darling Buds, "Son Of A Gun (demo)" by The LAs, "The Hardest Thing In The World" by Stone Roses, "Catweazle" by The Boo Radleys and many, many more!

✨✧ StylisticsStylistics ... LP
Avco, 1971. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A masterpiece of harmony soul – one of THE all-time greats of the genre, and a lasting treasure from The Stylistics! The album really took vocal soul to a whole new level for the 70s – pushing from the sometimes fragile ballad style of the late 60s into a smoother, more mature sound that was impeccably produced, yet still had all the depth of feeling as before! Maestro Thom Bell is the man to thank for the greatness of this album – as his production and musical vision really helped The Stylistics hit levels that few other groups like this were reaching at the time. Titles include their seminal long version of "People Make the World Go Round" – which, at 6 minutes in length, was really unusual for the time. Other titles include "Stop Look & Listen", "Betcha By Golly Wow", "You're A Big Girl Now", "If I Love You", "Ebony Eyes", and "You Are Everything". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ FabianDrugstore's Rockin – I'm A Man ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Surprisingly rocking sounds from Fabian – a figure most folks know as a teen star, both on screen and off – but an artist who comes across here with a sound that's surprisingly strong overall! Of course, part of the strength of these tracks is that they were cut at a time when studios often had top-shelf talent at their disposal – great session players and arrangers, who could set up the kind of a groove that came off pretty well, no matter who was in the lead! In the case of Fabian, most of the cuts were done for the Chancellor label, who didn't keep very good records – but we can say that there's some great guitar work on here from Howard Roberts and Barney Kessel, both of whom do a surprisingly great job of fitting into an early rocking groove! As usual with Bear Family records, the package and presentation is wonderful – and the set's overflowing with tracks, a total of 37 in all – with titles that include "Tiger", "Tongue Tied", "Ooh What You Do", "I've Got Nobody", "Hong Kong", "Little Meanie Jeanie", "String Along", "Grapevine", "Everything Is Just Right", "Hypnotized", "Hey Little Girl", "Lovesick", and "Shivers".

Cherry Red (UK), Early 80s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $12.99 16.99
A great re-presentation of this classic compilation on Cherry Red Records! The music here really gets at the genius of Cherry Red in the post-punk years – as the label was one of the few to really embrace all the many styles that were percolating in the UK – as you'll hear on the selection of work that runs from punkish to personal, experimental to evacuated, most of it still as fresh today as it was a few decades back! Cherry Red was home to so many of our favorites back in the day – and still continues to please us in recent years too – and this set of 31 tracks is a great testament to their genius. Titles include "Plain Sailing" by Tracy Thorn, "Penelope Tree" by Felt, "Chenko" by Red Box, "A Place In The Sun" by Marine Girls, "It's A Fine Day" by Jane, "Feathering The Nest" by Kevin Hewick, "Love In Your Heart" by Kevin Coyne, "Some Things Don't Matter" by Ben Watt, "Compulsion" by Joe Crow, "Stop The Music For A Minute" by Quentin Crisp, "Don't Blink" by The Nightingales, "On My Mind" by Everything But The Girls, "Eine Symphonie Des Grauens" by The Monochrome Set, "Un Homme Et Une Femme" by Morgan Fisher, "Shouting In Cafes" by In Embrace, "I'm Used Now" by Grab Grab The Haddock, and "Walter & John" by Ben Watt & Robert Wyatt.

Cherry Red (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 5CD ... $44.99 65.99
Great sounds from some of our favorite years of the British scene – those moments right after punk first exploded, and a generation of young English artists took off in so many different musical directions! The era's been labeled as post-punk, but what makes it really unique is that the label hardly does the music justice – as the time had such a rich array of sounds and styles, it would be impossible to sum of the vibe in just a few short words! There's definitely some punk elements in the music, but there's also electronic moments, sweeter songs, noisy bits, compressed prog inspirations, and even some occasional witty elements – with songwriting that's really stood the test of time over the years. There have been other collections of post-punk work over the years, but we've never seen a package like this – as the 5CD set features 111 tracks in all, packaged inside a book-style cover that's overflowing with notes and images – all with a track selection that includes lots of lost gems. In other words, even if you're like us, and already love this period, you'll still find plenty of greatness here – as the whole thing's balanced well enough to please both newcomers and longtime collectors. Includes work by Dif Juz, Glaxo Babies, The Homosexuals, Ultravox, Swell Maps, Clock DVD, Maximum Joy, Section 25, The Cravats, Native Hipsters, Josef K, Art Objects, The Passions, Big In Japan, Fischer-Z, Family Fodder, Girls At Our Best, Ludus, Boots For Dancing, In Camera, The Disco Zombies, Medium Medium, Alternative TV, The Nightingales, My Captains, Five Or Six, Steve Diggle, Dance Chapter, Fire Engines, Spoon Fazer, and many others!

Atlantic/Soulmusic.com (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 3CD ... $26.99 30.99
A fantastic run of music from a group who were key to the rising sound of soul music on Atlantic Records during the 60s – but who sometimes didn't always get their due! The Sweet Inspirations have roots in gospel – as the famous Drinkard Sisters – and they've also got a legacy that goes beyond these recordings, including later group sessions, and solo 70s fame by Cissy Houston of the group. But here, they're completely at their prime – known to bigger audiences for their background vocals behind Aretha Franklin and others, and working with a completely sublime blend of their gospel roots and newly righteous 60s soul modes – given superb accompaniment and production in a series of recordings done in New York, Memphis, Muscle Shoals, and Sigma Sound in Philly! This set features a huge amount of material – everything the girls recorded for Atlantic – the full albums Sweet Inspirations, Songs Of Inspiration, What The World Needs Now Is Love, Sweets For My Sweet, and Sweet Sweet Soul – plus non-LP single tracks, and enough material for a 1970 bonus album too, most of it never issued at the time. The package is the best we've ever seen on the group – an instant classic in our book – and it features 66 tracks in all, plus a big booklet of notes. CD

The album's part of H&O's great comeback years in the early 80s – a time when they were mixing their white boy soul with some nice 80s groove and electro touches, often going for a spare mix of groove and vocals that's really compelling. Includes the sublime "Maneater", everything that was right with pop in the 80s – plus "One On One", "Open All Night", "Crime Pays", "Go Solo", "Delayed Reaction", "At Tension", and "Italian Girls". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ PrinceArt Official Age ... CD
Warner, 2014. Used ... Out Of Stock
The more stylistically sprawling of the 2 albums Prince released upon returning to Warner Brothers in 2014 – nicely recalling some of his better later 80s and early 90s material, post-Sign O The Times craft – but still moving forward, as opposed to reliving past glories! Art Official Age finds Mr. Nelson working in myriad strains of eccentric, 80s-learned pop, soul and funk – in a voice that's held up impossibly well over the years. This one is credited to Prince alone, but features backing by his 3rdeyegirl rock band, Marissa Jack, aka Golden Hippie, Paloma Ayana and others. Everything from tripped out cosmic soul pop, to electro funk and psych soul guitar jams – Prince will be Prince! Includes the title track, "Clouds", "Breakdown", "The Gold Standard", "Breakfast Can Wait", "This Could Be Us", "Way Back Home", "Affirmation" (parts I, II & III), "Time" and more. CD
