Johnny Almond Music MachineHollywood Blues ... LP
Deram, 1970. Near Mint- ... $19.99
An excellent album of funky jazz – arranged and conducted by British organ and sax player Johnny Arnold – but also featuring some incredible work from an assortment of west coast soul jazz players that include Charles Kynard, Curtis Amy, Hadley Caliman, and Vi Redd! As the title kind of implies, the groove's in a swinging soundtrack sort of mode – almost a Lalo Schifrin 60s style, and one that blends together the organ lines with some totally sweet work on vibes, flute, and tenor sax. There's a wonderful Verve-like feel going down here – although in some way, the album's even hipper than anything on Verve from the time! Titles include "Agadir Sunset", "It's The Water", "Hot Rod", "Slipping Easy", and "Funkville U.S.A.". LP, Vinyl record album

Richie Cole with Eddie JeffersonHollywood Madness ... LP
Muse, 1980. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A great example of the Muse Records charm of altoist Richie Cole – bop-fired creativity at its peak, mixed with some added contemporary elements to keep things fresh! In this case, Richie's horn takes on some key bop classics, but also opens up a bit with vocalsits too – Eddie Jefferson on versions of "Hi Fly", "Relaxin At Camarillo", and "Waiting For Waits" – the latter of which also features Tom Waits as well! The Manhattan Transfer make some subtle guest appearances too – but in ways that are much more restrained than their own albums, really leaving most room for Richie's horn. Bruce Forman plays guitar and Dick Hindman piano – and titles include "Hi Fly", "Relaxin At Camarillo", "Hooray For Hollywood", "I Love Lucy", "Malibu Breeze", "Waiting For Waits", and "Tokyo Rose Sings The Hollywood Blues".

CrusadersHollywood ... CD
MoWest/Universal (Japan), 1972. Used ... $14.99
A great record from The Crusaders – and an album that's really the start of the group's strong run of smooth funky jazz for the 70s – a very vibrant little set, even though the black and white cover makes the whole thing look a bit understated! The album's got the group dropping the "jazz" from their name, but it's still a great bit of LA funky soul jazz – with electric keyboards from Joe Sample that are very much in a late 60s mode, plus guitar from David T Walker and Arthur Adams, and bass from Chuck Rainey, in addition to fine work by regulars like Stix Hooper, Wayne Henderson, and Wilton Felder. Tracks have a tight and uncomplicated funky approach, with a slightly smooth edge – and titles include "Do Yourself A Favor", "Try A Little Harder", "Cold Duck Eddie", "Way Back Home", and the Afro-funky groover "Alekesam"!

CTI, 1972. Very Good Gatefold ... $2.99
Man, it's like a talent bomb exploded! This set's stuffed with work by some of the greatest jazz funk players of the early 70s – Johnny Hammond, Bob James, Deodato, George Benson, Joe Farrell, Stanley Turrentine, Freddie Hubbard, Grover Washington Jr, Hubert Laws, and others – all playing together at a massive live concert recorded in Hollywood in 1972! And although you might worry that the collection of so many great talents on one stage might just create confusion – don't! The quality of the work is excellent – almost better than the best of the CTI studio sides, with a lean, clean sound that's really really tight – never overblown, just sweet electric funk with loads of great space for solo work. This first volume of the 3 LP set includes takes of "First Light", "California Dreaming" and a medley of "Inner City Blues" and "What's Going On". LP, Vinyl record album

A nice little Verve session that breaks from the usual format – especially the "Songbooks" one – and features Ella in LA with small group backing by Jim Hall, Lou Levy, Wilfred Middlebrooks, and Gus Johnson. The set was recorded live at the Crescendo – in a jazzily swinging mode that's a bit looser than some of Ella's other Verve sessions, but which still demonstrates some nice control on the vocals. Titles include "Mr Paganini", "Stairway To The Stars", "Air Mail Special", "Blue Moon", "This Could Be The Start Of Something Big", and "Just In Time". LP, Vinyl record album

Andrew MathesonSick On You – The Disastrous Story Of The Hollywood Brats, The Greatest Band You've Never Heard Of ... Book
Blue Rider, 2016. New Copy ... $5.99 16.00
The founding member of The Hollywood Brats tells the tale of the greatest group that never made it – a quintet who supposedly inspired the British punk greats of the late 70s, but who were almost an British version of the New York Dolls in the earlier part of the decade! The title and jacket notes might credit them with a bit too much influence – but the group's main record is an overlooked classic, and years ahead of its time – and Andrew Matheson paints a great picture of the way that square pages like his bandmates found a space of their own amidst the prog and classic rock giants that were dominating most of British music in the early 70s. 321 pages, soft cover, with some photographs in the middle.

Mustang ForceHollywood Hustlers ... LP
Beatsqueeze (France), 2020. New Copy ... $29.99
The cover's got the look of some old action thriller from the 70s – and the music follows that spirit in a really faithful way – offering up a really good range of different funky modes, which gives the whole record the feel and complexity of some classic cop, crime, or blacksploitation soundtrack! And sure, other groups have tried this approach before – but Mustang Force do an especially good job of it – never overdoing things with the instrumentation, and realizing that sometimes what makes a bit of classic soundtrack funk so great is the way a tune can focus on a core instrumental element. The set features lots of work on Fender Rhodes and Hammond, plus sharp horn solos, tight drums, and funky basslines – on tracks that include "Easy Morning", "Dirty Sheet", "Stalking You", "Relaxin With Debbie", "Night Chase", "We Will Meet Again", "Trippin Bad", and "Loose Beat".

CTI/King (Japan), 1971. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Although the genius of the CTI label might be often thought of in a studio format – especially since the Creed Taylor Influence on the label is what really turned the sound into something wonderful – this live set from 1971 shows that the label's players, with the right frame of mind, can easily get into the CTI groove in any setting – soaring out in a magical blend of acoustic and electric instrumentation, really stretching out on some killer long tracks! The group's a great all-star one – with organ and electric piano by Johnny Hammond, guitar by George Benson, flute by Hubert Laws, trumpet by Freddie Hubbard, tenor by Stanley Turrentine, and percussion by Airto – and all tracks are long, and very free-flowing. Titles include "Red Clay", "Sugar", "Blues West", "Leaving West", and "Fire & Rain". CD

The set features Lorez hitting some of the hippest, most rhythmic modes of her career – working with jazzy backing arranged by Gildo Mahones and Art Hillery, filled with soul and spirit, and really inspiring Lorez to hit those snapping sort of grooves that make her best tracks so great! Titles include her classic take on "Send In The Clowns" – a real jazz dance classic that goes far beyond its roots – plus the titles "Maybe This Time", "Where Is Love", "Change Partners", "One", "Come Sunday", "Bright Lights & You", and "You Leave Me Breathless".

The date's a bit later than some of Maynard's classic funk, but the groove's back on track – thanks to Stan's production and arrangements – and players that include Lee Ritenour, George Duke, Ndugu Chancler, and Tod Cochrane. The vibe is surprisingly soulful on most numbers – and titles include "Deja Vu", "Portuguese Love", "Here Today", "Touch & Go", "For Your Eyes Only", "Don't Stop Til You Get Enough", and "Hollywood".

Transparency, 1985. New Copy 2CDs ... Out Of Stock
"Club Lingerie" is about as unlikely a name as you might find for the setting of a concert by Sun Ra & The Arkestra – but as you'll hear from the music on this 2CD set, the group weren't about to let a little bit of ladies undergarment stop them from having a good time! The package brings to light some key material from the Arkestra's under-documented live sets in LA – a 1985 performance that's presented here with little in the way of notes or personnel, but which is done in that genre-crossing style the group used often in live dates as the 80s moved on – an approach that has them stepping easily through many generations of jazz as the set progresses – inside one moment, and very outside the next! Includes a version of "Mack The Knife", and a total of 13 tracks in all. CD

Lots of nice tracks, including "Dream Waves", "On Or Off", "Green Screen", and "Smokin". CD

Light In The Attic, Late 60s. New Copy ... $6.99 16.99
One of the greatest and most historically important compilations ever put together by our friends at Light In The Attic – the first ever (!!!) anthology devoted to Stax sax great Charles "Packy" Axton! Packy was a founding member of the Mar-Keys and a cat who played with the best of them – Steve Cropper, Booker T, Teenie Hodges, Donald "Duck" Dunn and many more – all of whom can be heard on this mindblowing set of benchmark vocal and instrumental singles from the mid 60s – truly the blueprint material for the great Stax and all around Memphis soul to come! It features singles cut for labels such as USA, Bar, Hollywood and Pure Soul – soul/R&B vocal numbers and proto-funky instrumentals. Amazing, amazing stuff recorded at Royal and Ardent Studios with some of the greatest soul music players to ever come together – so highly recommended! Includes "Holiday Cheer", "Bullseye", "Hung Over", "I'll Always Love" and "Late Late Party" by The Martinis, "No Ending" and "No Love Have I" by Stacy Lane, "House Full Of Rooms", "Out Of Control" and "I'm A Fool (In Love)" by LH & The Memphis Sounds, "Stone Fox", "Hip Pocket" and "Greasy Pumpkin" by The Pac-Keys, and "Hole In The Wall" by The Packers. 17 tracks in all – treated beautifully by team LITA – with a thick booklet of notes (by Andria Lisle) and full of vintage photos of the players, shots of the inner labels of the original singles, details for each track and more.

A searing live set from Cheap Trick – recorded during that glorious year of 1977, when it seemed like the group were really hitting their peak! The vibe here is different than the Budokan album – in part because the venue is small, the Whisky A Go Go in Hollywood – which makes for a wonderfully intimate take on the sound that would soon fill large arenas! The material has never been issued before – and titles include "Hello There", "Come On Come On", "Oh Candy", "Can't Hold On", "Clock Strikes Ten", "He's A Whore", "Daddy Should Have Stayed In High School", "Ain't That A Shame", "Elo Kiddies", "Cry Cry", "Taxman Mr Thief", and "You're All Talk".

A nice little shark-themed soundtrack, but one that comes across with a vibe that's quite different than any of the music used for Jaws – partly because there's a number of vocal tunes in the mix! The set features three standout songs – "Hollywood Big Time" and "You've Changed The World For Me", sung by Yvonne Wilkins – and "Ballad", which is sung by composer Maurizio De Angelis himself – which are then mixed with instrumental numbers that are electric and keyboard-heavy, maybe more in line with Italian slasher/horror work of the period than you might expect! The colder electronics must have given the watery scenes a really great vibe on the screen – and the package features great sound throughout, and a mighty nice graphic appeal. LP, Vinyl record album

On Moosebumps, Kool Keith, Dan The Automator and DJ QBert finally delivered worthy follow-up to the landmark Dr Octagon/Dr Octagonecologyst album, one of the most influential hip hop LPs ever – we can't imagine Madvillian and so many other other willfully out there rap classics would've happened without it – and the SP 1200 Remixes is a worthwhile alternate take on it.

Keith's subsequent work under the Dr Octagon persona had its charms for sure – and the same can be said for his other alter-egos of the mid 90s onward – but Dan The Automator's incredible production is so epic, DJ Qbert's scratchwork so masterful, we've always considered it a group project. This full scale reunion is the REAL sequel – and it's one of the best hip hop comeback efforts in years! Includes "Octagon Octagon", "Polka Dots", "Black Hole Son", "Operation Zero", "Bear Witness IV", "Area 54", "3030 Meets The Doc Pt 1", "Karma Sutra", "Hollywood Tailswinging" and more – plus LP bonus track "Aviator Hype".

A relatively dramatic score by George Duning – composer of a number of fine Hollywood soundtracks from the 50s, like Pal Joey, Picnic, and From Here To Eternity. The film's a slightly whimsical one with Danny Kaye in the lead, but Duning's approach is more somber, and more focused on emotive passages. Titles include "Amorous Colonel", "Best Of Enemies", "Colonel Kurt", "Jacobowsky", and "Like A Princess". LP, Vinyl record album

Earth Wind & FireAll 'N All (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia, 1977. New Copy ... $4.99 7.99
Genius, pure genius! It was hard for Earth, Wind & Fire to go wrong at this point – and the album's a stellar blend of jazz, funk, and soul, all done in that perfect style they'd hit by the mid 70s. And even though this one was a monster album, of the type that you see in everyone's record collection from the time, it's still got a freshness that we always forget about – and lots of nice twists and turns that show that the band hadn't lost their more sophisticated roots. Case in point is the wonderful "Brazilian Rhyme", a short little groover that you'll instantly recognize as a sample from the first Tribe Called Quest album. Other tracks include "Jupiter", "In The Marketplace", "Magic Mind", "Runnin", "Be Ever Wonderful", and "Serpentine Fire". Plus, the CD features bonus tracks "Would You Mind?", "Runnin (original Hollywood mix)", and "Brazilian Rhyme (live)". CD

Jerry Goldsmith's score for one of the greatest movies of the 70s – done with this spacious mix of jazzy elements that's completely sublime – and a bit like some of Johnny Mandel's best scoring too! The film is set in the 30s, but Goldsmith uses a lot of mature 70s elements in his music – nothing electric or funky, but just these open orchestrations that are really wonderful, and especially moody – sometimes laced with a jazzy trumpet solo, or a bit of piano – almost with that old Hollywood-through-crumbling LA of the 70s motif that you'd find in the music to Long Goodbye. Titles include "The Wrong Clue", "The Captive", "The Boy On A Horse", "The Last Of Ida", "Easy Living", and "Noah Cross". CD

✨✧ Donny HathawayDonny Hathaway Live ... LP
Atco, 1972. Very Good Gatefold ... $29.99
Massively beautiful work from the great Donny Hathaway! After two studio albums that had firmly put him on the map as one of the 70s best soul talents, Atco had the genius to have Donny record this live album before very enthusiastic crowds in Hollywood and New York. The result is one of the best soul albums ever – one that shows a totally different side of Donny, and which has him jamming with a smaller, hipper, jazz-oriented group in long versions of some of his best tracks. Features a massive 12 minute version of "The Ghetto", which has loads of excellent instrumental breakdowns, a 13 minute version of "Voices Inside (Everything Is Everything)", a superior version of the track "Little Ghetto Boy", which was only ever on a soundtrack, and covers of "What's Going On" and "Jealous Guy" that really transform them from the original versions. Very similar to the classic Curtis Mayfield 2LP live set on Curtom – and with a similar "Chicago studio soulster goes jazzy and intimate" feel. LP, Vinyl record album

Michael JacksonMichael ... CD
Sony, 2010. Used ... $3.99
An album that's bound to be the stuff of debates for years to come – the last material recorded in the studio by Michael Jackson, formed into an album after his death! If anything, the set's going to be a great reminder that, amidst any controversy over his personal actions, MJ's still a hell of a soul singer – one who can, despite any outside odds, manage to lay down a track that's got a lot more lasting permanence than most of his contemporaries – and that includes a large roster from the past few decades. Some of the numbers here really stand out – and we're not sure if we should credit Michael or the producers, but there's a new maturity that almost shows Jackson moving away from pop territory – some gentler tunes that really show a lot of warmth, and which to us are the real standouts in the set. The set features duets with Akon, 50 Cent, and Lenny Kravitz – and titles include "I Like The Way You Love Me", "Hollywood Tonight", "Hold My Hand", "Keep Your Head Up", "Behind The Mask", "Much Too Soon", and "Another Day".

"Mary Jane" & "You & I" were the 2 big hits of this album, which also includes "Be My Lady", "Hollywood" & "Sexy Lady". CD

Great soundtrack music from Japan – tunes made up of romping drums, acoustic and electric guitar, floating flutes, and more – all delivered with a very compelling feel overall! There's the same mix of mod and psyche influences you might find in the best late 60s Italian soundtracks – but unlike most of those classics, the music here is totally fresh – and often put together with odd little twists and turns that are completely unexpected! There's a subtle sense of drama in each of the short tracks here – yet not one that falls into Hollywood cliches, and which is instead free to roam around a world's worth of great musical influences. CD features a whopping 30 tracks in all – and all titles and notes are in Japanese. CD

New Door, 2007. Used 2 CDs ... $4.99
Sure, it's not the classic years of the 70s, but Kool & The Gang sound surprisingly great here on this recent set – grooving in a well-done, tightly-crafted way that may not exactly be early 70s funk, but which is still right up there with some of their later, mellower work! The rhythms are quite right on most numbers – never too stiff, and never too overdone – often with just a hint of jazz at the bottom – and vocals are delivered lightly, wrapped around the beats, keys, and riffs with a slightly subtle edge. Titles include "Dave", "Steppin Into Love", "America", "What's Happening Brother", "Made For Love", "Give It Up", "Trust Me", "Miracles", "Sorry", "Bang Bang With The Gang", and "It Is What It Is". 2CD set also features a bonus disc with 5 more hits – "Celebration", "Hollywood Swinging", "Joanna", "Summer Nights", and "Ladies Night".

LabellePressure Cookin' ... CD
RCA/Reel Music, 1973. Used ... $7.99
An early classic from LaBelle – wonderful vocals mixed with both heavy funk and laidback spacey soul touches! The group had really hit their stride by this point – as the trio of Nona Hendryx/Sarah Dash/Patti Labelle push way past their girl group roots – and even some of the slightly less-formed modes of their Warner Brothers years – finding a really badass sort of territory that would serve them well for the rest of the 70s! The shift really pays off – as there's a number of good funky numbers on the album – and some righteous political lyricism in the mix, too – but also some mellower moments that really round things out nicely. The trio riff on a version of "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised", as led into by the cut "Something In The Air" – and other numbers include "Sunshine (Woke Me Up This Morning)", "Mr. Music Man", "Goin' On a Holiday", "Open Up Your Heart", "Let Me See You In The Light", and "Can I Speak to You Before You Go to Hollywood".

United Artists, 1967. Very Good+ ... $6.99
One of the greatest soundtracks ever – an archetypal album from French composer Francis Lai, and a record that set the tone for countless other imitations to come – yet which is still the best! The groove here is really unique – a spare blend of bossa influences, jazzy organ lines, and wordless vocals that are sung beautifully by French singers Nicole Croisille and Pierre Barouh – and although a mainstream success, the record was the initial force behind the legendary Saravah imprint that Barouh would form later, to record a wide range of groundbreaking work in a variety of genres. But history aside, the music here is plenty – and from the very first note the whole soundtrack grabs you with a sense of warmth and sentiment that defy description – modes never heard before in the soundtrack world, and which really broke the mold from Hollywood conventions! Titles include the seminal bossa number "Samba Saravah", plus "A Man & A Woman", "Today It's You", "In Our Shadow", "At 200 MPH", and "Stronger Than Us". LP, Vinyl record album

Michel LegrandLes Demoiselles De Rochefort (Young Girls of Rochefort) (French version) ... LP
Universal (France), 1966. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $29.99
One of our favorite soundtracks ever – a jazzy swinging ode to love found and love lost – all penned by the legendary Michel Legrand! The work was composed in collaboration with director Jacques Demy for his 1966 film of the same name – and, like the previous Demy/Legrand collaboration, Umbrellas Of Cherbourg, the movie's a story in song – one that has much of the dialogue presented as sung lyrics to the tunes. The mode takes off from a Hollywood musical style, and pushes the genre into territory that's much hipper, very French, and with a soaring approach that's filled with plenty of mod 60s jazz grooves. Legrand's genius has never sparkled so brightly – and his ability to interweave different themes, stories, and grooves is simply amazing! This double-length set presents the expanded original score – with many songs that were not on the original single version of the soundtrack, plus key bits of dialogue to help transition the tunes. Titles include "Chanson Des Jumelles", "Chanson De Delphine", "Nous Voyageons De Ville En Ville", "Chanson D'Andy", "La Femme Coupee En Morceaux", and "Marins Amis Amants Ou Maris".

OutkastIdlewild ... LP
LaFace/Zomba, 2006. New Copy 3LPs ... $31.99
The new album from Outkast and the soundtrack to their film Idlewild! Outkast has been daring haters for years to pounce at will – and they really take that approach to the next level by making what is far and away their oddest project in midst of the most scrutiny they will probably ever receive. We're lacking a bit of perspective in that we haven't seen the movie – but the best stuff probably makes it worth picking up. Idlewild continues the tag team style of Speakerboxx/Love Below in that the duo rarely appear together on the same tracks. The single "Mighty O" is the most notable expection, in that both rappers do their thing on it – and 3000 is actually rapping! The rest of the album, surprisingly, has a fairly coherent flow – with little touches of the 1930s vibe and atmosphere ( the setting of the film) – as envisioned by forward looking hip hoppers. It's a daring set of tracks with strong moments – and lots of additional singing by Sleepy Brown and others. Tracks include "Mighty O", "Peaches" feat Sleepy Brown & Scar, "Idlewild Blue (Don'tchu Worry 'Bout Me", "N2U" feat Khujo Goodie, "Morris Brown" feat Scar & Sleepy Brown, "Chronomentrophobia", "The Train" feat Sleep Brown & Scar, "Life Is Like A Musical", "Hollywood Divorce" feat Lil' Wayne & Snoop Dogg, "Buggface", "PJ & Rooster", "Greatest Show On Earth" feat Macy Gray.

The sound here is kind of a variation on the Booker T & The MGs and Mar-Keys sound – changed up in the rhythm department to put a bit more funk in the tunes, making the album crackle with more life than any classic side by either of those groups. The drums are great, and often augmented by conga – and the album's also got some very tasty work on sax and organ as well.

Like the debut, the Queens Of Noise album is total ear candy – and this one is actually probably even a little bit more consistent – and might rock a little harder, too. It's not quite as notorious without the illicit wallop of the group's debut single "Cherry Bomb" – but that's probably the only reason it's not as well remembered.

Piero UmilianiSmog – Musiche Dalla Colonna Sonora Originale (180 gram vinyl plus bonus CD) ... LP
RCA/Rearward (Italy), Early 60s. New Copy ... $26.99
An early jazzy soundtrack from the great Piero Umiliani – made even better by some key work from Chet Baker on trumpet and Helen Merrill on vocals! The set was done at a time when both artists were spending some time in Italy – shaping the scene with their presence, and really standing out on a handful of rare recordings like this one – quite different than their American material of a few years before! Baker is especially striking – with lead solos that have a great sense of compression, and a depth of soul that really move beyond the Pacific Jazz recordings. And Merrill is wonderful, too – with that special flavor she only ever seemed to open up when she went overseas – and got to move into more unusual settings. But the real star is Umiliani throughout – balancing modern impulses with late night jazz in a way that really points the way towards his later scores in the 60s – but which is already nearly perfect here! Titles include "Smog" (done in instrumental and vocal versions by Baker and Merrill), plus "Dawn", "Tensione", "Tops", "California In The Summer", "Hollywood Tonight", "Bowling", and "Twilight At Los Angeles".

Ace (UK), 1976. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $29.99
A really cool collection, and one that's got a very special focus – an imaginary soundtrack for the record-breaking British summer of 1976 – a searingly hot time that really pushed the nation to the brink! Bob Stanley's given us some great collections on Ace Records before – often with Pete Wiggs, or as Saint Etienne – and this set continues the very special vibe of those sets, by bringing together cuts that we never would have thought would work so well otherwise – a sublime mix of soul, rock, and pop – all glowing together with the warm vibe of the summer of 1976! Titles include "I'm Mandy Fly Me" by 10CC, "Walking So Free" by Spike Janson, "Sugar Shuffle" by Lynsey DePaul, "Liquid Sunshine" by John Cameron, "Not On The Outside" by Sylvia, "You Are My Love" by Liverpool Express, "You're The Song" by Hollywood Freeway, "Discover Me" by David Ruffin, "Stoned Out" by Simon Park, "Montreal City" by Azimuth, "Stay With Me" by Blue Mink, "Music" by Carmen McRae, "Rock N Roll Star" by Barclay James Harvest, "Fallin In Love" by Hamilton Joe Frank & Reynolds, "Inspiration Information" by Shuggie Otis, and "Miss My Love Today" by Gilbert O'Sullivan. Imagine the mixtape from Guardians Of The Galaxy, but done by a much hipper ear, and you'll get a good idea of this one! LP, Vinyl record album

VariousBanana Split For My Baby – 33 Gems From The Good Old Summertime ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $8.99 12.99
The sounds of summer in the years before the Beach Boys and surf music – songs that proclaim the glory of the warmest months of the year, but in raunchy styles from the early years of rock and roll! Artists run the gamut from rockabilly singers, to R&B groups, to some surprisingly strong contributions from more pop-oriented acts – and as with other Bear Family packages of this nature, the whole thing is plenty playful – put together with a good deal of wit in the song choices and presentation! Titles include "Sunday Barbecue" by Tennessee Ernie Ford, "The Sun Is Shining" by Elmore James, "Banana Split For My Baby" by Louis Prima, "Summer's Coming (demo)" by Ronnie Dawson, "Strollin On The Beach" by The Hollywood Flames, "Beach Time" by Roger Smith, "Suntan Tattoo" by The Valiants & Sandy Vale, "Summertime Love" by Roy Head & The Traits, "Beach Comber" by Jo Ann Campbell, "Night Theme' by The Mark II, "Moonlight Swim" by Nick Noble, "26 Miles" by The Four Preps, "Sunglasses After Dark" by Dwight Whitey Pullen, "Summertime Rock" by Rodney & The Blazers, and "The Big Beach Party" by The Jades with Pacer's Music.

VariousDeutsche Elektronische Musik 3 – Experimental German Rock & Electronic Music 1971 to 1981 (3LP set – with bonus download) ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 3LP ... $32.99 39.99
A totally great look at the explosion of electronic sounds in German music during the 70s – a set that goes way past more familiar Krautrock territory, to bring together elements from the artier side of the spectrum too, and even run up to some of the first great moments of the German new wave! Soul Jazz have been down this path before, but this time they're maybe following the road a little farther – as the track selection is especially great, and has a way of really illuminating the special sound of this generation, even if you already know some of the music! There's a few more meditative moments than on previous volumes, mixed with some tuneful tracks, funky numbers, and even a few subtle rockers – all laid out in a way that really makes the songs sound great together as a whole. Titles include "Dronz" by Novalis, "Wide Open Space Machine" by Klaus Weiss, "Deutscher Wald" by Deutsche Wertarbeit, "I'll Be Your Singer You'll Be My Song" by AR & Machines, "The Brain Of Oskar Panizza" by Michael Bundt, "And The Waters Opened" by Between, "White Overalls" by La Dusseldorf, "Tanz Der Vogel In Den Winden" by Achim Reichel, "Hollywood" by Cluster, "Die Haut Der Frau" by Pyrolator, and "Passage" by Streetmark.

VariousPunk 45 Vol 1– Kill The Hippies! Kill Yourself! – Underground Punk In The USA 1973 to 1980 ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Way more than just the usual punk collection you might expect – not just LA hardcore or New York downtown, and instead a really wide range of work from the American underground of the 70s – including some really key tracks by artists who were working in a punkish mode a few years before the style ever had a name! Soul Jazz have really done an excellent job with this set – scanning a wealth of rare indie singles to come up with a set of tracks that virtually writes the history of the emergence of punk rock on the American shores – work that owes very little to the UK wave, and which instead really reflects the unique hybrid of styles that infected US material from the start. There's loads of cuts on here that we'd totally forgotten about – all brought together with the usual great Soul Jazz sense of history, reflected in the notes – and titles include "Let's Get Rid Of New York" by The Randoms, "I'm A Bug" by The Urinals, "Cakes In The Home" by Crash Course In Science, "Not Now No Way" by The Pagans, "Flash Of The Moment" by Pastiche, "Neutron Bomb" by The Controllers, "Action" by The Knots, "Dog Meat" by Flamin Groovies, "Kill The Hippies" by The Deadbeats, "US Millie" by Theoretical Girls, "Wild Weekend" by The Zeros, "Ice Age" by The Bizarros, and "Hillside Strangler" by Hollywood Squares.

✨✧ VariousStranger I May Be – Savoy Gospel 1954 to 1986 (3CD set) ... CD
Savoy/Honest Jons (UK), Late 50s/1960s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 3CD ... $23.99
An insanely fantastic look at the strong legacy of gospel music from Savoy Records – a company who were initially a powerhouse in the fields of jazz and R&B, but who moved into the gospel world and dominated that market for decades! Savoy is a bit like Chess Records – a company who really learned how to record blues singers and soulful styles from the secular world, then used that same ability to work some real magic on songs from the more spiritual side of the spectrum – an approach that really made for top-shelf music, even as the decades moved on! Savoy's gospel legacy has always been a bit underground – not nearly as reissued for larger audiences as their jazz and blues material – but this collection does a great job of correcting that lack, by presenting their music in a wonderful format – all in a mix of rare cuts and classics from the gospel underground. A great 3CD set – with a huge amount of work – music by The Davis Sisters, Gospel Chimes, Jimmy Scott, Roberta Martin Singers, Swindell Brothers, Christones, Gospel Harmonettes Specials, Harmonizing Five, Famous Ward Singers, Blind Boys Of Alabama, Stars Of Faith, Gospel Cavaliers, Staple Singers, The Metro Tones, Betty Hollins, Gene Martin, Swan Silvertones, Artistic Sounds, James Moore, Holy Lights Of Baltimore, Brooklyn Skyways, World Wonders, Myrna Summers, Brockingham Ensemble, Prof Charles Taylor, Exciting Supreme Highlights, Highway QCs, Solomon Burke, Genobia Jeter, World Wonders, Edith Moreno, Glenn Jones & The Modulations, Hollywood Stars, James Cleveland, Holy Lights Of Baltimore, Sensational Williams Brothers, Gospelaires Of Dayton, Helen Hollins Singers, Edith Moreno, and The 4th Of May.

✨✧ Gary's GangKeep On Dancin (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia/PTG (Netherlands), 1978. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A clubby classic from the enigmatic Gary's Gang – a group who scored a big disco hit with the title track of this album, a unique groove that features some weird keyboard and synth touches – alongside some surprisingly great percussion at the bottom! The group effortlessly mix electric and acoustic elements, all with a vibrancy that allows both elements to flourish strongly at the same time – creating a playful interplay that really makes their music sound unique compared to some of their disco contemporaries! Titles include "Showtime", "Party Tonight", "Do It At The Disco", "Let's Lovedance Tonight", "Keep On Dancin", and "You'll Always Be My Everything". CD features bonus tracks – "Keep On Dancin (12" club mix)" and "Keep On Dancin (Hollywood's 5am club mix)". CD

✨✧ Rick JamesCome Get It ... CD
Motown, 1978. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Rick James' first LP for Motown subsidiary Gordy – an effort that was to provide the blueprint for his later success! James' trademark pop bass funk style is fully formed on this one already, and though we may once have thought little of the slick production and style, looking back this stuff has a good bit more substance than some of the other commercial R & B of the day! "Mary Jane" & "You & I" were the 2 big hits of this album, which also includes "Be My Lady", "Hollywood" & "Sexy Lady". CD

✨✧ Francis LaiMan & A Woman (French & English versions) ... CD
Kritzerland, Mid 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest soundtracks ever – an archetypal album from French composer Francis Lai, and a record that set the tone for countless other imitations to come – yet which is still the best! The groove here is really unique – a spare blend of bossa influences, jazzy organ lines, and wordless vocals that are sung beautifully by French singers Nicole Croisille and Pierre Barouh – and although a mainstream success, the record was the initial force behind the legendary Saravah imprint that Barouh would form later, to record a wide range of groundbreaking work in a variety of genres. But history aside, the music here is plenty – and from the very first note the whole soundtrack grabs you with a sense of warmth and sentiment that defy description – modes never heard before in the soundtrack world, and which really broke the mold from Hollywood conventions! Titles include the seminal bossa number "Samba Saravah", plus "A Man & A Woman", "Today It's You", "In Our Shadow", "At 200 MPH", and "Stronger Than Us". This great CD features both the English and French versions of the score, too! CD

✨✧ Henry ManciniEncore – More Of The Concert Sound Of Henry Mancini ... CD
RCA (Spain), 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An unusual concert performance from Henry Mancini – one that features the maestro leading a full orchestra, but with a really groovy feel overall! Each track is relatively long, and based around a set of smaller songs wrapped up in a medley – almost mini-symphonies in pop music, arranged by Mancini with a really lively sound that goes far past the usual pop orchestral styles of the time. Soloists include Mancini on piano, Ted Nash on alto sax, Arthur Gleghorn on flute, and Bud Brisbois on trumpet – and the set features "Portrait Of The Beatles", made up of Beatles' hits; "Foreign Film Festival", made up from 60s film themes; "Music From Hollywood", with US film themes; and "Three By Mancini", a variation on some groovy originals by Hank!
