Fat NightLive For Each Other (deep blue vinyl pressing) ... LP
Acrophase, 2020. New Copy 2LP ... $26.99 28.99
Mellow soul from the Windy City – served up by a group we first discovered on a Colemine funky 45, and who sound even better here in the space of a full length album! The group clearly have an influence from sweet soul of the 70s – but their presentation is more contemporary too – both at an instrumental level, where they seem to have winnowed down the best sonic elements of larger orchestrations – and at a vocal level, where they never try to push too hard for their range, or overstate their case too much. We really appreciate that subtle balance – and it resonates strongly throughout, on titles that include "Love Me", "Honest Man", "Long Weekend", "Telephone/Good Place", "Heart", "Life For Each Other", "Special", "Wander", "Alone In Love", and "Fat Night's Theme".

Barons, Dominoes, Queenettes, & OthersRoots – Rhythm & Blues ... CD
Folkways, 1966. New Copy Gatefold ... $12.99 16.98
A weird little album from the Folkways label – one that features a bunch of 50s-sounding R&B tracks, but packaged almost in an ethnographic style – as if commercial American music was being examined from an outside scientific source! Given that the date of the album is 1966, and most of the work has a sound from a decade before, the approach can be somewhat excused – but honestly, much of the material here would have done great on a commercial label as well – especially some of the more soul-based material. There's a great array of stuff here – and titles include 3 tracks by The Barons – "There's A Dream For You", "Until The End", and "I Can Jerk All Night" – plus "Don't Mistreat Me" by The Queenettes, "Baby Fat" by The Dominoes, "There Is Something About My Girl That Is Mighty Sweet" by Dave Bonds, "The Eel" by Johnny Larand & The Internes, and "A Fool In Love" by Naomi Bradley. CD
(Special limited CD – pressed up for us by the Smithsonian Folkways label. Comes with original cover artwork, and the CD also features a PDF file with the original liner notes and other materials from the original record release.)

✨✧ Junior KimbroughMeet Me In The City ... LP
Fat Possum, 1990s. New Copy ... $16.99 18.99
Raw, intimate Junior Kimbrough recordings, mostly from the early 90s, a number of which were recorded at home – and for the all hiss and murk of the recording quality, the intimacy and realness of the voice, guitar and the man's presence alone make up for it! Spare, lonely blues from Junior that's as quite raw, but endearingly so, and there's some incredible stuff here. The opening title tune has Junior sounding pretty vulnerable and tender hearting, which is pretty amazing – and other numbers include "Done Got Old", "Baby Please Don't Leave Me", "Lonesome Road", "Junior's Place" and a great trio of recordings from the 1993 Sunflower Blues Festival in Clarksdale, MS: "I Feel Alright", "All Night Long" and "Nobody But You".

Warner, 1978. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The classic late 70s double live album from Little Feat! Their reputation as one of the great live acts of that decade or any other is realized beautifully here – the band playing off of each other masterfully, and they're just as sharp vocally – but what's most impressive is how they manage to expand upon the studio versions of the songs and jam a bit, too. A seriously impressive set – and truly one of the more essential live albums of the late 70s by anyone! Includes "Join The Band", "Fat Man In The Bathtub", "All That You Dream", "Day Or Night", "Spanish Moon", "Dixie Chicken", "A Apolitical Blues", "Sailin Shoes", "Feats Don't Fail Me Now" and more. 27 tracks in all.

✨✧ VariousLet's Jump – Swingers & Humdingers From Modern Records ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A killer set of jump blues from the postwar years – all pulled from the never-ending vaults of the Modern Records label – home to some of the coolest cats working the LA scene at the time! The music here is part R&B, part soulful swing, and always delivered with that near-perfect sound that Modern could always hit – a way of cutting tracks that were always on the most sophisticated side of the spectrum, but which also came across with the kind of gutsy energy that was bound to inspire the sort of dancefloor moves you see on the cover! Yet the set's also not just another batch of rare tracks from the late 40s – as the selection, sound, notes, and overall presentation are superb – on titles that include "Meet Me With Your Black Dress On" by Jimmy Nelson, "Big Fat Mama"by Gene Phillips, "Take The A Train" by Ike Carpenter with Lucky Thompson, "Wiggle Toe" by Oscar McLollie, "Cold Blooded Boogie" by Jim Wynn, "Cotton Tail" by Benny Carter with Ben Webster, "Tick Tock" by Marvin & Johnny, "Deep Purple" by Jimmy Jackson All Stars, "Getting High" by The Flairs, "Boogie All Night Long" by Lillie Greenwood, and "Jumpin At The Woodside" by Jerry Brent.

✨✧ Sun RaSuper-Sonic Jazz/Fate In A Pleasant Mood ... CD
Saturn/Solar (Spain), 1956/1960. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Two great early Sun Ra recordings on Saturn! On Super Sonic Jazz, despite the futurism that the title of the set might imply, the material on this LP is actually some of Sun Ra's earliest, and dates back to the years when the Arkestra was first beginning to make itself heard in Chicago. That doesn't stop the material from being amazing, though, as these prime early tracks really show how strong Ra's vision was, even when it was being applied to material that might look more simple on the surface. Titles include "El Is A Sound Of Joy", "Medicine For A Nightmare", "Sunology", "Advice To Medics", and "Portrait Of The Living Sky". Fate In A Pleasant Mood was recorded and released in 1960 – and is a stellar example of Ra's early genius at work. John Gilmore and Marshall Allen hold down the reed solos, and Ra's piano is out front, with plenty of space for crazy solos, especially on the cut "Space Mates". All compositions are original Ra material, and the track list includes "Ankhnaton", "Distant Stars", and "The Others In Their World". CD

Toe FatBad Side Of The Moon – An Anthology 1970 to 1972 (Toe Fat/Toe Fat Two/bonus tracks) ... CD
Regal Zonophone/Esoteric (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99 24.99
A pair of overlooked gems from Toe Fat – back to back on a single CD! First up is the self-titled debut of Toe Fat – a group with a silly name, but a really wonderful sound – some of the nascent hard rock currents in the UK scene, but delivered with more depth in both the songwriting and vocals – so that there's searing guitar lines, but also these well-crafted moments that bring tunefulness into play with a headier, deeper lyrical vibe – maybe even some of the late legacy of the Bay Area scene, taken to a UK style. Titles include the group's great version of "Bad Side Of The Moon" – plus "Nobody", "That's My Love For You", "Working Nights", "I Can't Believe", "But I'm Wrong", "You Tried To Take It All", and "The Wherefors & The Whys". Next is the group's second album – stunning sounds from Toe Fat – a group with work in the UK scene, but with enough funky currents in their music to get issued in the US on Motown's excellent Rare Earth label! The leadoff track of the record is maybe even enough to warrant the price of the whole album – this long jam that just continues to have heavy drums and a strong guitar riff – moving along fast and funky, and barely stopping for a bit of lyrics! Other tracks vary things a bit more, but in a good way – showing the group's ties to Jethro Tull and Uriah Heep, in a fusion of hard rock and blues rock, with just a subtle touch of prog. A few gentler moments balance out the record wonderfully – and titles include "Stick Heat", "Three Time Loser", "A New Way", "There'll Be Changes", "Indian Summer", "Idol", and "Midnight Sun". CD features the bonus tracks "Brand New Band" and "Can't Live Without You". CD

James BrownJames Brown Singles Vol 2 – 1960 to 1963 ... CD
King/Hip-O Select, Early 60s. Used 2 CDs ... $26.99
The second chapter in the career of James Brown – right when things really started getting interesting, and the Godfather started to explore a huge array of new styles! The 2CD set is a great follow-up to Hip-O's look at Brown's Federal years – and it tracks his first 3 years of singles for King Records – an array of 40 tracks that run the gamut from bluesy soul to instrumental funk – and everything else in between! James is really at the top of his early game here – bursting out with new ideas on every new session – moving at rapid speed to try out new music with Bobby Byrd, JC Davis, Nat Kendrick, and other key group members during these early years. As with the first volume, the collection presents the music in a single-by-single basis – a and b-sides intact, and documented by great notes that further open up this incredible music. Given that the later albums chopped up all of the tracks and released them in greatly different order, the package is an essential back-to-basics look at this time – handled better than we ever could have imagined! Titles include "Can You Feel It (part 1 & 2)", "Three Hearts In A Tangle", "I've Got Money", "The Bells", "Hold It", "The Scratch", "Sticky", "Suds", "I Don't Mind", "Cross Firing", "Night Flying", "I'll Never Never Let You Go", "I Love You Yes I Do", "Oh Baby Don't You Weep (parts 1 & 2)", "Waiting In Vain", "Devil's Den (parts 1 & 2)", "Can You Feel It (part 1)", "Choo Choo", "Prisoner Of Love", "Why Does Everything Happen To Me", "Bewildered (demo)", and "Night Train".

Trojan/Doctor Bird (UK), 1969. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99 24.99
A pair of gems from the early years of reggae – stacked back to back in a 2CD set, along with a huge amount of bonus tracks too! First up is the legendary Freedom album from Clancy Eccles – one of the first great talents to emerge in the Jamaican scene of the 60s – a singer whose recorded history even predates rocksteady and ska, and who had an undeniable impact on the early sound of reggae! Eccles is a genius – a singer/songwriter with a strong sense of soul, and an approach that really opened up the way for a new level of humanity in Jamaican music – as you'll hear on titles that include "Two Of A Kind", "Mount Zion", "Fattie Fattie", "What Will Your Mother Say", "Freedom", "I Need You", "The World Needs Loving", and "Dollar Train". The Dynamites were Clancy Eccles backing band at the same time as the Freedom album – and they step out here in an album of their own – one produced by Clancy himself, but issued even before they backed him up on Freedom! The set features numbers by the group, some organ tunes by Winston Wright, and two vocal appearances by King Stitt – on titles that include "John Public", "Eternally", "Sam Fie", "This Is The Night", "One Way Street", "Vigorton 2", "Fire Corner", "Soul Language", and "Say What You Say". Plus, this 2CD set has a huge amount of bonus tracks – 13 more numbers by Eccles – plus another 13 by The Dynamites, King Stitt, Val Bennett, and Winston Wright. A huge amount of music, all packaged with the usual deep notes and high quality that makes the Doctor Bird label one of the greatest reissue labels for Jamaican music! CD

The first two parts of Joe Gibbs African Dub series, featuring super-heavy spaced out dubs of Gibbs' solid gold rocker's rhythms. Underrated mixologist Errol T provides an ample helping of dub sauce, and somehow he manages to sound just this side of gimmicky when dropping in all those weird sound effects of dogs barking and sirens, but with those chubby Gibbs riddims thundering along underneath, it doesn't matter much what kind of sound effects get thrown in. Crazy fat smoked out grooves featuring: "African Dub", "Universal Dub", Midnight Movie", Ghetto Skank", "Lime Key Rock", "Lover's Serenade", "Treasure Dub", "Schooling The Beat", "Campus Rock", "Half Ounce", "Worrier", "East Africa", "Chapter Two", "The Marriguna Affair", "My Best Dub", "Angola Crisis", "Peeping Tom", "Outrage", "Idlers Rest", "Third World", "Heavy Duty Dub", "Musical Arena", "Mackarus Serenade" and "Jamaican Grass".

Incredible String BandIncredible String Band/5000 Spirits Or Layers Of The Onion/Hangman's Beautiful Daughter ... CD
Elektra/BGO (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $10.99 19.99
Important early work from The Incredible String Band – three albums in one great package! First up is the first album from the Incredible String Band – a real treasure from the trio of Clive Palmer, Mike Heron and Robin Williamson – who each sing and write, and bring unique charm to their own material! The sound is very folksy, and really lives up to their name – mostly just music on fiddle, banjo, mandolin, and guitar – served up in a blend that both echoes British traditional styles, yet paves the way for new expressions in the acid folk generation to come – especially on the group's original material. The group are really wonderful at this point – with a sound that drew them wide acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic – and titles include "Maybe Someday", "October Song", "When The Music Starts To Play"", "Schaeffer's Jig", "Womankind", "The Tree", "Whistle Tune", "Dandelion Blues", "Good As Gone", and "Footsteps Of The Heron". Next is 5000 Spirits – a UK psychedelic folk gem that finds the group challenging conventions across the board – both artful and inviting, it's wonderful stuff! At this point, Clive Palmer had left, and Mike Heron and Robin Williamson contribute lead vocals with the additional vocalist Licorice also taking lead on a few tunes, the sound is fleshed out with more accompaniment and a rich warmth on a bevy of instruments – guitar, sitar, bowed gimbri, finger cymbals, tamboura, oud, rattles, flute, bass and piano. Includes the lovely and oft-covered "The First Girl I Loved", plus "Chinese White", "No Sleep Blues", "Painting Box", "The Eyes Of Fate", "The Hedgehog's Song", "You Know What I Could Be", "Gently Tender", "Way Back In The 1960s" and more. On Hangman's Beautiful Daughter, The Incredible String Band are paired down to the core duo of Mike Heron and Robin Williamson – using the studio as a most impressive adjunct member of the group at this point! This is an extremely talented pair – each playing myriad instruments – sitar, organ, guitar, hammer dulcimer, harpsichord, gimbri, whistle, pipe, oud, mandolin, mouth harps and more. Previous vocal collaborator Licorice sings on one song, and Dolly Collins and David Snell contribute flute organ, piano and harp – but the main duos incredible way of layering their magic with multitracking in the studio the real masterstroke of the effort. Titles include "Koeoaddi There", "Witch's Hat", "The Water Song", "Swift As The Wind", "Nightfall", "Waltz Of The New Moon", "Three Is A Green Crown" and more. CD

Blue Note (Japan), 2019. New Copy ... $16.99
A really fantastic 80th birthday tribute to Blue Note Records – one that has a host of younger Japanese jazz musicians banding together to deliver their own versions of Blue Note classics from back in the day! The lineup is wonderful, and very adept at changing up from track to track – Jun Miyakwawa on Hammond and piano, Takuya Kuroda on trumpet, Akihiro Nishiguchi on tenor, May Inoue on guitar, Ai Kuwabara on piano, Ryuta Tsunoda on bass, and both Tomo Kanno and Shun Ishiwaka on drums – players who not only understand the spirit of the music, but also very much rise with each other in a sense of fresh arrangements that moves the record way past just a sleepy remake of the past! Instead, we hear plenty of currents of the more contemporary Tokyo scene – on titles that include "Maiden Voyage", "Feel Like Makin Love", "Cleopatra's Dream", "Midnight Blue", "Song For My Father", "Sidewinder", and "Night In Tunisia".

Tami LynnLove Is Here & Now You're Gone ... LP
Cotillion, 1972. Near Mint- ... $29.99
An incredibly captivating album of female soul – unlike anything else we can think of! Side one features a suite of tracks that details an ill-fated love affair in 4 modes: Introduction, Hoping, Final Attempt, and The Next Time – all done in a mode that mixes standard southern soul with these deeper monologues delivered by Tami in between each track! Lynn performs the work in a starkly intimate style that sends chills down our spine – and which makes you feel like you're listening in on her talking to her best friend – very cool, very personal, and deeper than most other work of its type. Side two is back on the regular tip – with shorter songs overall – but Tami does a pretty good job its range of mellow southern ballads and a few more uptempo numbers. Titles include a version of Andre Williams "Mojo Hanna", plus "Ain't No Soul", "One Night Of Sin", "Love Is Here & Now You're Gone", and "That's Understanding". LP, Vinyl record album

Tim MaiaWorld Psychedelic Classics 4 – Nobody Can Live Forever – The Existential Soul Of Tim Maia ... CD
Luaka Bop, 1970s. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98
Insanely great sounds from the legendary Tim Maia – easily the most soulful singer in 70s Brazil, and an artist with a heck of a strong ear for funk, too! The music here is an incredible hybrid of American soul and Brazilian elements – especially since some lyrics are in English – and the grooves are often mixed together in a sound that's nice and fuzzy around the edges, with some slight psychedelic elements that makes the cuts a perfect fit for this Luaka Bop series! Yet Tim Maia's hardly a guy who can easily fit into any easy slot or series – because as you'll hear on this set, he's got a vibe that's all his own – a really wonderful approach that's different even from some of his hippest contemporaries in Brazil – and which has gone onto have influence on countless other generations of singers and musicians – including his nephew Ed Motta. The package is great – a real visual tribute to the sounds within – and titles include "Que Beleza", "Ela Partiu", "Do Leme Ao Pontal", "Brother Father Mother Sister", "Quer Queira Quer Nao Queira", "Let's Have A Ball Tonight", "I Don't Care", "The Dance Is Over", "Rational Culture", "You Don't Know What I Know", and "Nobody Can Live Forever".

Guinness/BBE (UK), 1977. New Copy ... $8.99 14.99
A wonderful package – a set that brings together two rare funk albums by Newban, an early version of Atlantic Starr – plus bonus tracks too! The first Newban record is one of the sweetest ensemble funk albums of the 70s – and a record that's gone on to become a classic, despite the fact that most people know little about the group! Newban have a sound that's almost a jazzier take on the Earth Wind & Fire groove of the time – a style that's warm and fluid, and which really gets past the cliches of other larger funk acts – and manages to find a space in sound that's all its own! There's lots of odd phrasings and chords on the set – creating these very blue passages even when the group's grooving in an uptempo mode – almost like the sense of sadness that creeps out from Stevie Wonder's work during his best early 70s years. The sound is totally unique, and uniquely wonderful – and the album includes the classic "Father Time", plus the cuts "Magic Lady", "Mellow Days, Easy Nights", "Fatback Sally", and "Hungry Grin". Newban 2 is every bit as great as the first album – if not better – with some excellent excellent lost material that's the kind of stuff that still keeps you diggin' for the hard ones. Includes the track "Greenburgh", with a tight funky intro and a smooth sweet soul groove, plus lots of other great cuts like "Free Your Mind", "Easin' Through", "Find a Place to Live", and "Rhythm & Rhyme". This deluxe package also features three rare bonus tracks – "Oh Wow", "Miracle Holiday", and "Bells" – tracks recorded before the first two albums! CD

✨✧ PattoGive It All Away – The Albums 1970 to 1973 (Patto/Hold Your Fire/Roll Em Smoke Em/Monkey's Bum) (4CD set) ... CD
Vertigo/Esoteric (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 4CD ... $36.99 50.99
Four full albums from Patto – presented here in a complete box set! First up is the self-titled Patto – the debut album from a group who were never huge at the time, but who've gone onto become one of the best-remembered acts from the Vertigo Records scene – thanks to the sound of this amazing debut! The record is extremely hard to peg – it's definitely got some jazz inspiration in the way the songs are put together – especially since group member Ollie Halsall uses some great vibes – but the whole thing's hardly a jazz rock set at all – as the tunes are maybe more open at times, or a bit gritty at others – always topped by the unique vocals of Mike Patto. The record is both freewheeling and down to earth at the same time – a hard thing to pull off – and titles include "The Man", "Hold Me Back", "Time To Die", "Red Glow", and "Government Man". Hold Your Fire is a really great second set from Patto – a record that maybe tips the balance more strongly towards guitar sounds than the previous, but one that still preserves all their really unique sense of arrangements and songwriting! Vocalist Mike Patto is kind of a lost legend from early 70s rock – a singer who might have given some of the bigger Brit names a run for their money, had he ever gotten a chance to really shine in the spotlight. But it's also that suppressed fame that makes his presence on this record so great – a completely unselfconscious approach that fits in both with the grittier numbers and some of the more open, chromatic tunes. Titles include "Hold Your Fire", "Give It All Away", "See You At The Dance Tonight", and "How's Your Father". Next is Roll Em Smoke Em – maybe the funkiest record ever cut by Mike Patto and crew – a set that's got a nicely loose, unbridled feel – and plenty of funky drums and percussion from John Halsey! The group have really hit their prime here – so much so, they almost don't need any larger concepts or ideas to guide them – and are just comfortable to get together and work out some nicely rough-edged ideas – with Patto himself sounding maybe a bit more blue-eyed soulful/rocker, and Ollie Halsell kicking up his guitar with a lot more fuzz. Titles include "Flat Footed Woman", "Singing The Blues On Reds", "Loud Green Song", "Turn Turtle", and "Peter Abraham". Last up is Monkey's Bum – material that was intended to become the fourth album from Patto – an excellent UK group who never fully got their due! Patto have a great sound that's kind of like higher progressive rock ideas taken down into bluesier territory – with an earthiness that maybe a few key contemporaries got right – maybe Traffic or Procol Harum – and, like both of those groups, one that was capable of really hitting things right on the nose with a special sound that was all their own. Mike Patto only got better as a singer as the years went on, bringing more soulful phrasing into his lyrics – which is also echoed by some of the keyboard and rhythm work here, but never in a way that's too slavishly blues-rock or white boy soul, and certainly with the right sort of complexity to warrant the group's attention by Island in the early 70s. Titles include "Hedyob", "My Days Are Numbered", "Sugar Cube 1967", "I Need You", "Good Friend", and "Get Up & Dig It" – plus a great cover of "Last Night I Had A Dream". CD set features the bonus tracks "Beat The Drum", "Bad News", and "Hanging Rope". CD

Sun RaLove In Outer Space ... CD
Leo (UK), 1983. Used ... $13.99
One of the strongest Sun Ra albums in wide release during the 80s – a live set from Utrecht in 1983, done with a tightly-crafted sound that really focuses the energy of the group and displays their great range and capabilities in a number of modes! Most of the set is relatively inside, with a cohesive sound that's marked by some strong horn arrangements and nicely bluesy lines from Ra on piano. Titles include "D 27", "Fate In a Pleasant Mood", and a reading of "Round Midnight" – but the highlight for us is an extended combination of the tunes "Love In Outer Space" and "Space Is The Place", which grooves along mightily!

✨✧ Natalie ColeUnpredictable ... LP
Capitol, 1977. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An album that reunites Natalie Cole with the smooth soul team of Chuck Jackson and Marvin Yancey – the team who did such a great job with Natalie's Capitol debut, and who really continue the groove here too! The album's got a rock-solid approach through and through – a quality that has Natalie really standing out on her own as a positive young artist in soul – without any need to nod towards her father, as in later years. And Jackson and Yancey bring a nice dose of Chicago soul class to the affair – which turns out to be a perfect match for Natalie's vocals! Titles include "Be Mine Tonight", "Party Lights", "This Heart", "I've Got Love On My Mind", and "Still In Love". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Tim MaiaWorld Psychedelic Classics 4 – Nobody Can Live Forever – The Existential Soul Of Tim Maia ... LP
Luaka Bop, 1970s. New Copy 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Insanely great sounds from the legendary Tim Maia – easily the most soulful singer in 70s Brazil, and an artist with a heck of a strong ear for funk, too! The music here is an incredible hybrid of American soul and Brazilian elements – especially since some lyrics are in English – and the grooves are often mixed together in a sound that's nice and fuzzy around the edges, with some slight psychedelic elements that makes the cuts a perfect fit for this Luaka Bop series! Yet Tim Maia's hardly a guy who can easily fit into any easy slot or series – because as you'll hear on this set, he's got a vibe that's all his own – a really wonderful approach that's different even from some of his hippest contemporaries in Brazil – and which has gone onto have influence on countless other generations of singers and musicians – including his nephew Ed Motta. The package is great – a real visual tribute to the sounds within – and titles include "Que Beleza", "Ela Partiu", "Do Leme Ao Pontal", "Brother Father Mother Sister", "Quer Queira Quer Nao Queira", "Let's Have A Ball Tonight", "I Don't Care", "The Dance Is Over", "Rational Culture", "You Don't Know What I Know", and "Nobody Can Live Forever".

✨✧ Oliver SainSt Louis Breakdown – The Best of Oliver Sain ... CD
Sain Sound/P-Vine (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Killer instrumental funk from the mighty Oliver Sain – one of the hippest cats to ever work the St Louis scene! The package features most of the best cuts from Sain's years at Abet Records, plus some tasty indie moments too – a really tremendous assortment of his sax-heavy grooves, brought together in a package that's overstuffed with greatness! Styles range from heavy funk to some of the more boogie-oriented styles that Sain did later in the 70s – and they've all got a mighty sharp edge, and lots of soul sax work that easily rivals the best that King Curtis, Joe Thomas, or other ebony godfathers had to offer. Titles include the massive sample cut "On The Hill" – plus "St Louis Breakdown", "Comin Down Soul", "Feel Like Dancin", "African Walk", "The Prayer", "Country Funk", "Night Time", "Mr King & Mr Jordan", "20-75", "Strollin", "Party Hearty", "Booty Bumpin", "Soul Serenade", "Scratch My Back", "London Express", and "Going Back To Memphis".

Charly (UK), Late 50s/1960s/1970s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautifully overstuffed collection of early work from New Orleans soul legend Allen Toussaint – a set that not only includes many of his key recordings from the scene in the 60s, but also some of his important productions for other artists too! The package begins with Toussaint in the lead on a series of sides on CD one – working either as himself, or as Al Touson, or with The Stones, The Rubyiats, or Allen & Allen – all with these choppy, loping, heavy-grooving rhythms that were Toussaint's huge contribution to New Orleans soul right from the start! Titles include "Whirlaway", "Whipped Cream", "Moo Moo", "Wham Tousan", "Omar Khayyam", "I Don't Need One", "Baby Do Liddle", "Tomorrow", "Fat Cat", "Banana Split", and "Java". CD2 features a series of recordings done for the Minit, Instant, and Sansu labels – all with Toussaint involved either as producer, arranger, or musician – on material that forever shaped the sound of New Orleans – titles that include "A Certain Girl" by Ernie K Doe, "Over You" by Aaron Neville, "I Like It Like That (parts 1 & 2)" by Chris Kenner, "Sophisticated Cissy" by The Meters, "Holy Cow" by Lee Dorsey, "I'm Evil Tonight" by Betty Harris, "Oogsey Moo" by Jessie Hill, "It Will Stand" by The Showmen, "Ruler Of My Heart" by Irma Thomas, "Fortune Teller" by Benny Spellman, and "Hot Tamales (parts 1 & 2)" by The Primemates. 50 tracks in all!

Verve, 1964. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Excellent 60s work by Stan Getz – tunes recorded in 1964, but not issued at the time, thanks to a flurry of bossa nova craziness! The pairing of Getz and Bill Evans is a wonderful one here – as both players are at their warmest, and working with a wonderful sense of tone throughout – Stan, slightly lyrical at times – and Bill, with some slight brooding undercurrents that really add some depth to the set. The rest of the group features either Ron Carter or Richard Davis on bass, plus Elvin Jones on drums – and titles include "Funkallero", "Melinda", "Grandfather's Waltz", "My Heart Stood Still", and "Night & Day".

The set features wonderfully dynamic energy from Aquiles Navarro and Tcheser Holmes – the former a trumpeter, the latter a drummer – but, as with all IA artists, able to work in many different modes at once – really taking the record past their core instrumental contributions! Navarro adds in work on moog and juno keyboards, plus a bit of voice and percussion – and the whole thing is blended together with the kind of production work and editing that make a record like this as much of a sonic experience as it is a session of free-thinking jazz. Titles include "Initial Meditation", "MONK", "Father", "NAVARROHOLMES", "Interlude/Interludio", "Pueblo", and "A Night In NY". CD

1960 nightclub recordings from Lenny Bruce – done at a time when he was really opening up stylistically, and taking on a host of themes that really tell a tale of the times! The work here is plenty edgey – lots of sharp turns, offbeat ideas, and that sharp wit that makes Bruce one of the greatest sets of eyes to view the 60s from the perspective of the 21st Century. Titles include "Don's Big Dago", "Marriage, Divorce, & Motels", "Father Flotsky's Triumph", "Lima Ohio", and "How To Relax Your Colored Friends At Parties". LP, Vinyl record album

Electric PrunesComplete Reprise Singles ... CD
Reprise/Real Gone, Late 60s. New Copy ... $8.99 18.99
A comprehensive anthology of The Electric Prunes singles for Reprise – including work produced by David Axelrod, all in their original mono mixes – and a long overdue collection! We've been spinning and loving the Electric Prunes albums for so long, we're actually quite guilty of overlooking just how succinctly and sharply brilliant they are as a singles band! That alone makes this strong set on Real Gone worthwhile, but the tight, punchy mono mixes seal the deal! All of the great singles are here – from their early garage-psych gems to the trippier, though still tightly-grooving tunes towards the end of the decade – plus a groovy radio spot for the Vox Wah Wah Pedal! Includes "Ain't It Hard", "I Had Too Much To Dream (Last Night)", "Luvin'", "Dr. Do-Good", "The Great Banana Hoax", "Credos", "Shadow", "Violent Rose", "Sell", "Love Grows", "The Adoration", "Help Us (Father, Our King)", "Finders Keepers, Losers Weepers", "Sanctus", ""Flowing Smoothly" and more. 24 tracks in all.

✨✧ Stan Getz & Joao GilbertoGetz/Gilberto #2 ... LP
Verve, 1964. Very Good Gatefold ... $14.99
A very different record than the first collaboration between Stan Getz & Joao Gilberto – but that's also one of the things that makes it great! The album's more of a split LP than a shared one – as side one features a live performance from the great mid 60s Stan Getz quartet that featured Gary Burton on vibes – a wonderfully cool combo that was very under-documented on record, and which makes a key appearance here. The combination of Burton's vibes and Stan's tenor is pure genius – a sound that's got all the subtle hues and cool colors of the Getz bossa recordings, but which is quite different overall. Stan's tone is amazing on these tunes – and titles include "Here's That Rainy Day", "Tonight I Shall Sleep With A Smile On My Face", "Grandfather's Waltz", and "Stan's Blues". Side two features Joao Gilberto without Stan – playing in a very groovy trio that's more straight bossa than most of his other US recordings – cool small combo grooving that's totally great! The lineup features Gilberto on guitar and vocals, Keeter Betts on bass, and Helcio Milito on drums – all working in a sweetly grooving mode on titles that include "Samba De Minha Terra", "Meditation", "Bim Bom", "Rosa Moreno", and "O Pato".

A legendary set of live performances from Jimi Hendrix – both sets recorded in Maui in July of 1970, presented here officially for the first time ever – along with a bonus documentary on the performances too! The set is kind of the true counterpart to the botched Rainbow Bridge project – and features Jimi with Billy Cox on bass and Mitch Mitchell on drums – really stepping out on some extended tracks that are filled with searing solos, and that undeniable charisma of Hendrix on stage – still wonderful, even near the end. Titles include "Hear My Train A Comin", "Fire", "Dolly Dagger", "Ezy Rider", "Message To Love", "Lover Man", "Spanish Castle Magic", "Purple Haze", "Red House", "Hey Baby/Midnight Lightning", "Straight Ahead", "Stone Free", "Jam Back At The House", and "Freedom".

Verve, Mid 50s. Very Good+ ... $19.99
The Modern Jazz Quartet make a rare appearance on Verve Records in the 50s – splitting half the album here with the classic Oscar Peterson Trio! The live performance was recorded in Chicago, and definitely has the MJQ working in a looser vibe than on some of their late 50s recordings for Atlantic – a bit more open and swinging, in a Verve mode – with some of the bop inspiration that first showed up on their early Prestige recordings – as you'll hear on the cuts "Now's The Time", "Round Midnight", and "D&E Blues". The second half of the record features live material from Oscar Peterson's hip group with Herb Ellis on guitar and Ray Brown on bass – that great drum-less lineup that really lets Oscar take off on piano – on tunes that include "Big Fat Mama", "Should I Love You", "Indiana", and "Elevation".

Columbia, 1982. Near Mint- ... $34.99
The starkest, sparest ever by Bruce Springsteen – sans accompaniment for the most part, having famously opted to release the haunting guitar, voice and harmonica demos as the actual album – and it's devastatingly strong to this day! The hallmark facet is that it's a largely solo acoustic record, the the great thing about that is how distinctively Springsteen sounding it is – with the all the earnestness of his more anthemic material, and more – just done with a sometimes somber, always intimate approach. One of those records that deserves all of the loft praise! Includes "Nebraska", "Atlantic City", "Mansion On The Hill", "Johnny 99", "State Trooper", "Used Cars", "Open All Night", "My Father's House" and "Reason To Believe". LP, Vinyl record album

A classic performance by one of the most groundbreaking soul jazz groups of the 70s! Tolliver's leading his Music Inc ensemble here – an important quartet that featured him on trumpet, Stanley Cowell on piano, Cecil McBee on bass, and Jimmy Hopps on drums. During their time recording for the Tolliver/Cowell owned label Strata East, the group forged a strident spiritual approach to jazz – one that took all of the experiments of Coltrane, and fused them with a soulful sound that was packed with all of the righteousness of the time. The group's at their finest here – working before a very friendly crowd at the legendary Slugs nightclub in the East Village – and tracks on this second volume include "Spanning", "Wilpan's", and "Our Second Father", all done in nice long readings!
