Steven Blush with Paul Rachman & Tony MannLost Rockers – Broken Dreams & Crashed Careers (hardcover) ... Book
Powerhouse Books, 2016. New Copy ... $5.99 27.50
A pretty great book about folks who almost made it in the music business, but who never quite hit the stardom they were destined for – even though a few of these figures have become legendary over the years! The book looks at rock and soul artists from the 60s and 70s, almost all of them with pretty amazing stories – and continued moments of "almost" in their careers – points where their paths seemed about to hit the big time, but life turned the other way. These aren't one-hit wonders, or failures – but really interesting people whose stories are great, and often illuminated with really striking photos and images from their past. The book features chapters on Cherry Vanilla, Evie Sands, Brett Smiley, Betty Davis, Bobby Jameson, Gloria Jones, Chris Darrow, Jake Holmes, and others – hardcover, 159 pages, with images throughout.

Bonnie BramlettSweet Bonnie Bramlett ... LP
Columbia, 1973. Very Good+ ... $11.99
Blue eyed southern soul from Bonnie Bramlett – recorded in LA, but with a sound that's much more in keeping with Muscle Shoals! There's no real reason for this sound – no hidden producer or arranger from the southern indie scene who helped make the record hipper than usual – but somehow, the record comes off tremendously well, and a lot better than most other white singers working on the west coast at the time! Bonnie gets Sweet Inspirations-like backing vocals on most tracks – with Gloria Jones helping out in the group – but even on her own, it's clear she'd be great, and most of the record soars with lead vocals that are very much in the best Atlantic soul mode of the time! Titles include "Able Qualified & Ready", "Good Vibrations", "Crazy Bout My Baby", "Got To Get Down", "Celebrate Life", "Rollin", and "How Glad I Am". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light aging and light wear, but looks nice overall.)

✨✧ CommodoresMachine Gun ... LP
Motown, 1974. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Lionel Richie come back! All is forgiven! We'd said bad things about you for years until we heard this funky groover – The Commodores' first album, a tasty bit of funk that almost makes us want to forgive you for all of your later crimes! The whole thing's pretty funky all the way through – with a strong southern groove, touched with a bit of a Sly Stone party funk mode. Includes the killer break classic "The Assembly Line", which feels like it was lifted right off one of Sly's late 60s albums for Epic – plus "The Bump", "Machine Gun", "The Zoo", and "Gonna Blow Your Mind". Arrangements are by James Carmichael and Gloria Jones, who also did the production – and the album's a long way from "Three Times A Lady", trust us! LP, Vinyl record album
(Early 80s reissue. Cover has a cutout notch.)

Dakota StatonLate Late Show ... LP
Capitol, Late 50s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A Capitol classic from Dakota Staton – and the record that made her a real leading lady at the label in the years before Nancy Wilson's rise! The set's got a wonderfully laidback feel that's in keeping with the title, yet it also swings nicely too – kind of a new level of soul in jazz vocals that really points the way towards 60s recordings by Gloria Lynne, Etta Jones, and others. Backings are by Van Alexander, and include solos from Hank Jones on piano and Jonah Jones on trumpet – plus some great un-credited vibes and guitar – and titles include "The Late Late Show", "Give Me The Simple Life", "Moonray", "Ain't No Use", "Misty", "Summertime", and "What Do You See In Her". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono UK reissue with rainbow labels in a barcode cover. Cover has a promo sticker on back.)

VariousRhythm & Soul – Sweet Love Songs ... CD
Essential, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 14.99
A great collection of rare mellow soul from back in the day – the kind of sweet soul tracks that broke big on the Philly and New Jersey scenes at the start of the 70s – including a number of gems from the Stang/All-Platinum family of labels! Most tunes are nice and laidback, although a few pick up the pace to mellow midtempo – and the set is filled with the kind of cuts that first had us falling in love with mellow soul many years back – when we started to realize that soul music wasn't just about funk! Titles include "Pretty Pretty" by The Joneses, "Million Dollars" by Soul Generation, "Blind Baby" by New Birth, "Three Minutes To Hey Girl" by George Kerr, "Hypnotized" by Linda Jones, "Gloria" by Enchantment, "Cause I Love You" by Lenny Williams, "Look Over Your Shoulder" by The Escorts, "Yes I'm Ready" by Barbara Mason, "Carla My Love" by The Softones, "A Lover's Stand" by Norma Jenkins & The Dolls, "Bound" by Ponderosa Twins Plus One, "I'll Be Sweeter Tomorrow" by The O'Jays, and "Me & My Gemini" by First Class.

✨✧ VariousNew Jazz Poets ... CD
Folkways, 1967. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A seminal set of righteous underground poetry – a key bridge between the earlier work of Langston Hughes and some of the bigger spoken sides of the 70s by artists like Gil Scott-Heron or Wanda Robinson! As the title promises, there's a definite undercurrent of jazz in the work – but mostly in the subject matter of the poems, or in the riffing way the readers approach the material – since there's really no instrumentation at all to accompany the voices. There's a few names on here that you might recognize, but there's a lot more that you won't – and that makes the album a key look at this under-documented 60s scene. Titles include "Elvin Jones Gretch Freak" by David Henderson, "The Jackal Headed Cowboy" by Ishmael Reed, "Poem To Americans" by Gerald Jackson, "Poem To Ernie Henry" by Gloria Tropp, "Listening To Sonny Rollins at the 5 Spot" by Paul Blackburn, "African Memories" by Joel Oppenheimer, and "Autumn 1964" by Peter LaFarge. 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.)

✨✧ VariousLaurie Records Story Vol 3 – Girls & Girl Groups ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Great girl group grooves from Laurie Records – one of the powerhouses of the genre during the 60s! The set brings together some of the best that Laurie had to offer at the time – not just hits, but some great lesser-known gems that really make the package stand out from other girl group sets on the market – a wonderful collection of both rock and soul cuts that show there's still plenty left to discover if you know where to dig! Tracks are pulled not just from the main Laurie label, but also from other imprints too – including the Rust, Providence, and Harmon labels – and as usual, Ace has done a bang-up job with the notes and images – helping us learn plenty about the music while our ears are enjoying the sounds. Titles include "Hanky Panky" by The Summits, "Shy Guy" by The Charmers, "You're The Love Of My Life" by Brenda Lee Jones, "Stop Look & Listen" by The Chiffons, "He's Mine" by Linda & The Lindettes, "Your Big Mistake" by The Del-Rons, "I Still Love You" by Les Girls, "He's My Dream Boy" by Marie Antoinette, "How Can I Be Sure" by Gloria Dennis, "Circus Girl" by Bernadette Carroll, "Whenever A Teenager Cries" by The Jeans, "Nothing Went Right" by Lorrie Darnell, and "Your Life Is Gone" by Reparata.
