Black IceBlack Ice ... CD
HDM, Late 70s. New Copy ... $6.99 15.98
A heavy groover from Black Ice – an old school harmony act at the core, but working here in a sweet clubby mode for the 70s! The approach is quite similar to the best group soul coming from Philly at the time – with some wicked upbeat numbers that step along beautifully – not Sigma-bred, but with a similar blend of tight rhythms on the bottom, soaring strings on the top, and funky instrumentation in the middle – more than enough to really get the vocal interplay going between the group's five members! Arrangements are by Ray Jackson – and the set also features a few nice mellower numbers to round out the sound – including the great stepper "The Wine Is Bitter (But The Grapes Are Sweet)" – alongside other tracks that include "Shakedown", "Blind Over You", "Touch", "Girl That's What I Call Love", "I Want You Back", and "Making Love In The Rain".

Black IceBlack Ice (Montage) ... CD
Montage, 1982. New Copy ... $6.99 15.98
That's almost a hip hop cover on the front – one that would be years ahead of its time – but the record's a great batch of soul from this overlooked group! There's a tightness here that goes way beyond the previous album from Black Ice – a really top-shelf delivery all the way through – of the sort you'd expect to hear from a much bigger act at the time. The album's divided into two sides – a "lover's side" and a "dancer's side" – the latter of which features the band grooving in kind of an 80s club mode, with lots of bass pedals and a smooth funky sound that's not too bad. The real strength, though, is the lover's side – which is sort of an update of the 70s east coast harmony sound, given a smooth modern soul twist, but still retaining the best part of the vocal style, especially on the midtempo cuts. Titles include "I Just Wanna Hold You", "This Time", "Never Knew Love", "Big Fun", and the ode to designer jeans, "Sergios (I Want To Be With You)". CD

Black IceI Judge The Funk ... CD
Transcontinent/Traffic, 1979. New Copy ... $6.99 15.98
A lost bit of ensemble funk from the end of the 70s – served up in a mix of bass-heavy club and boogie styles! The group have a rolling groove that's a bit like some of the work by Instant Funk or other clubby funk acts – but the overall feel is a bit tighter and more small group-oriented, even though the end result is as tight and professional as anything coming out on some of the bigger labels at the time – making for a great mix of indie and mainstream funky club styles! Our favorite cuts may actually be the mellower ones – which have some great soul harmonies – but even the uptempo tracks are pretty nice, with a strong Philly-inspired sound overall – and titles include "Postcard Love Affair", "My Fantasy", "Push", "There You Go", "Fantasize", "I Judge The Funk", and "You're Always on My Mind".

Tight, hard hitting dawn of the 90s beats from Flash and that gruff, tight rhyme delivery from Just-Ice. It might not be a masterpiece on par with Kool & Deadly, but it's plenty tough to our ears after all these years. Includes "Get Into Something", "The Iceman Cometh", "Slow, Low & Dope", "Rollin With The Just", and "I Write This In The Dark" with Angie B of The Sequence, known today as Angie Stone! CD

Shirley BrownFire & Ice ... LP
Malaco, 1989. Near Mint- ... $7.99
A great later set from Shirley Brown – an artist you might know best for her Stax work of the 70s, but who sounds wonderful here in a completely different mode! The album was done for Malaco at the end of the 80s, but it's got a vibe that's much more contemporary R&B than some of the label's other offerings – less bluesy soul, and more this cool, classy approach to soul music that really offers a new showcase for Shirley's great vocals. A number of tracks have a sweet new jack groove – which works surprisingly well for Brown – and titles include "King Size Love", "Silent Treatment", "What Cha Gonna Do When The Money Runs Out", "Tell Me Something Good", "Take Me To Your Heart", and "Anticipation".

Jerry ButlerIce Man Cometh (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Mercury/Elemental (Spain), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
Amazing soul from one of the greats of the 60s! This album was one of the first that Jerry cut for Mercury – where he'd begun working with the young team of Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff to completely rework the earlier sound he'd forged at Vee Jay Records. The album's still got Jerry singing in his wonderfully rich deep voice – hence the "iceman" in the title – but the songs have a bit more of a groove to them, with a soaring soul style that really lifts Jerry up, and pushes him onto a whole new generation of soul fans. The best proof of this are the hits "Hey Western Union Man" and "Never Give You Up" – but the whole album's great, and like most of Jerry's LPs, it's got many wonderful tunes hiding underneath the hits. Titles include "How Can I Get In Touch With You", "Can't Forget About You Baby", "Are You Happy", and "Go Away Find Yourself" – as well as other hits like "Lost" and "Only The Strong Survive".

Terry CallierFire On Ice ... CD
Elektra/DBK Works, 1978. New Copy ... $7.99 17.99
One of the great albums from Terry Callier's "second chapter" on record – a time when he was working for Elektra Records, and doing work that was a bit straighter soul than before – and also slightly jazzy as well! The record's kind of a mix of jazzy grooves and smoother soul – typical for the fusion division of Elektra at the time, where Callier's hard-to-peg work was relegated. There's some really great songs on the record – and although the arrangements sometimes lack the sensitivity of the Cadet scorings of earlier years, they're still pretty great from a modern soul perspective. Richard Evans is producing and arranging the session, and Terry's still got help from a lot of Chicago friends like Minnie Riperton, Eddie Harris, and Phil Upchurch – all of whom help to keep the album relatively strong. Titles include some really nice originals, like "African Violet" and "Butterfly", both of which are some of Terry's best compositions from the time – plus "Love Two Love", "Martin St Martin", "Street Fever", and "Be A Believer".

The package starts with their early heavy funk days recording with Allen Toussaint, and it moves up to their smoother sounds of the early 80s – when the band was hitting more of a modern groove. Titles include "Girl Callin", "Action Speaks Louder than Words", "Running Away", "How About Love", "Who's Getting It Now", "Let's Go All The Way", "Take It Off", "Say Won'tcha", and "Blue Jeans". CD

Revilot, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A great little soul track – and the record that put George Clinton on the map! "Testify" is a landmark cut – with a great rolling soul sound that takes up the heavy production style of Detroit, and points it towards the psychedelic future of the Mothership. The flipside's a great harmony track, too – with some nice vibes floating in the background, and a good gimmicky chorus! It's more of a Chicago track than a Detroit one – but it's done very nicely. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Three Blind Mice/Craftman (Japan), 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A record with a really beautiful title – and a sound that definitely lives up to the "Sailing Ice" on the cover! The music is very much in the best post-Coltrane mode – played by a group led by the great Japanese drummer Motohiko Hino, and featuring Mabumi Yamaguchi on tenor and Yasuaki Shimizu on soprano and tenor – two reed players who really express themselves with a great sense of spirituality, and lots of searching energy throughout. The tracks are mostly originals (save for a version of "Soultrane") – served up in freewheeling modal grooves, and peppered with sharp, soulful solos that search out bold new territory, but which never get too free and sloppy. The set was recorded live, but the recording quality is excellent – and titles include "Rio Rome", "Sailing Ice", "Milky Shade", and "New Moon". CD

Includes all of the early singles and some classic level deeper album cuts. Rhymes wise, it's one of the finer albums on Priority around that time – really delivering some tough, intricate rhymes that rival some of best in the game. 13 tracks in all, including the ambitious 7+ minute "Nature Of The Threat", On Earth As It Is...", "The Evil That Men Do", "Drama", "Sonset", "If/Then", "Reelishymn", "Miami Life", "Soul On Ice" and more.

John Abercrombie/Marc Johnson/Peter ErskineJohn Abercrombie/Marc Johnson/Peter Erskine ... LP
ECM (Germany), 1989. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A nicely varied live set from this trio of key ECM players of the 80s – captured here with the same sense of sound as some of their studio recordings – which must have been something amazing to hear in person! Abercrombie's still very chromatic at this point in his career – playing fluid, colorful lines on guitar – but also using occasional guitar synthesizer passages too – more waves of sound than individual lines, which sounds especially nice next to more driving drums from Peter Erskine! Marc Johnson's ear for space is perfectly tuned for the proceedings – working at a level that's far beyond standard bassmanship – and titles include "Light Beam", "Drum Solo", "Four On One", "Samurai Hee Haw", "Furs On Ice", "Stella By Starlight", and "Innerplay".

Nice compilation of tracks that features some fine (and famous) moments from one of our favorite Chicago soul singers, recorded for the Vee Jay label, when they were one of the leading lights on music row. Most of these songs are pretty had to get a hold of on vinyl any more, and though the package is a bit low budget, this is still a great set of some of the Ice Man's best numbers. Tracks include "He Will Break Your Heart", "For Your Precious Love", "Find Another Girl", "Couldn't Go To Sleep", "Aware Of Love", "Come Back My Love", "Rainbow Valley", "I'm A Telling You", "Gift Of Love", and "Where Do I Turn".

John Cameron/Alan ParkerAfro Rock – KPM 1030 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
KPM/Be With (UK), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
African rhythms, jazzy instrumentation, rock inspiration, and a motherlode of funky sound library grooves from two of the best British maestros working in the business! The album's an early 70s gem from the KPM catalog – one of the most sought-after records ever issued by the label – and like the rest, never really made for public sale back at the time! Despite that humble origin, though, the grooves here are right up there with the funkiest work coming out from that side of the Atlantic at the time – a brilliant post-colonial blend of acoustic percussion, electric keyboards, and a fair bit of fuzzy guitar – all presented with a stripped-down, no-nonsense approach to the rhythms that's often funkier than work by some of the bigger names in the genre. Titles include "Heavy Water", "Ice Breaker", "Solid Satin", "Punch Bowl", "Frozen Steam", and "Black Light" by Alan Parker – and "Swamp Fever", "Range Rover", "Survival", "Afro Waltz", "Heat Haze", "Rocking Rhino", and "Afro Metropolis" by John Cameron.

A current Italian vocalist – but one who's taking a lot of cues from older singers of the 50s and 60s – particularly those of the ice-blonde sexpot variety! Anna's working here in a blend of acoustic and electric instrumentation – often given a retro-styled mode that reminds us of some of the Irma La Douce artists in recent years – but which also gets a bit more abstract as the set moves on. From covers of tunes like "Call Me" and "An Occasional Man", Anna moves into more personal original material like "Swimming" and "Could Be", which have a more modern, chilled out sort of groove that pushes the album into new territory. Other tracks include "Hopelessly Fool", "A Guy What Takes His Time", "U Go To My Head", "Adrian", and "Love Is A Reason". CD

It's a bizarro guest list and some of the tracks are pretty out there, too – but there's quite a bit of vintage styled Bootsy here – be it G-Funk hip hop with guest rhymers or tripped out monologues – and of course the classic Bootsy bass groove.

Ted CursonFireball (aka Trio) ... CD
Trio/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $22.99
A fantastic, freewheeling session from trumpeter Ted Curson – one that we'd rank right up there with his seminal sides for the French Futura label! Like those, this album really features Ted stretching things out – working in very loose trio formation, with just Ray Drummond on bass and Roy Haynes on drums – on these open-ended tunes that still swing with plenty of soul, even without any other instrumentation. Curson's horn is great – blown beautifully, and filled with spirit – and some numbers have him really reaching out with his sound, in ways that may well make the date one of Ted's most adventurous since the 60s! Titles include classic Curson tunes "Quicksand" and "Straight Ice" – plus "Round Midnight", "Snake Johnson", "Pent Up House", and "Wave". CD

Dining RoomsExperiments In Ambient Soul ... CD
Schema (Italy), 2005. Used ... $6.99
The best album to date from The Dining Rooms! We're not sure what the group mean by "ambient soul" – because it's not really that ambient (although it is pretty darn soulful) – but we do really love the way that the record sounds, and we applaud the group for working here in a tighter, more song-based format than usual! Nearly all the tracks on the set are vocal numbers – and not just tunes where the voice is incidental, and just drifted into the mix – but instead really focused around the lyrics, in a way that makes for some of the strongest statements the group has made on record so far! Instrumentation includes a fair bit of Fender Rhodes, and vocals are by Marta Collica, Clover, Don Freeman, and Sean Martin. Titles include "No Problem", "Diamonds & Comforts", "Driving", "Destination Moon", "Within", "Forever's Not", "Experiments In Ambient Soul", "Thin Ice", and "The World She Made".

Pure genius from Lee Hazlewood – one of his gems cut for MGM in the 60s, and a session that features some great small combo backings! The feel here is almost a jazz-inflected take on the slight country tinge of Lee's other work – a style that's as sophisticated and unique as Hazlewood's well-penned lyrics and amazing vocals. Lee's completely at home here – working with the great engineer Eddie Brackett, who's sound for his vocals is just about as great as could be hoped – the matchless blend of ice and embers that perfectly defines the Hazlewood sound. All tunes are originals by Lee – and tracks include "Shades", "This Town", "Stone Cold Blues", "Child", "Little War", "Hands", "Fort Worth", "Them Girls", and "Mannford Oklahoma". Features two bonus tracks – "Moochie Ladeux" and "The Lone Ranger". CD

Jefferson Airplane flying high in the late 60s – and Crown Of Creation was both a creative and commercial triumph for the band – balancing the tripped out adventurousness of their earlier work, with a more focused approach! Front loaded with moodier, acoustic-based songs that build into heavier rock as the record plays on – with some really great use of sound effects for added drama here and there! Titles include "Lather", "In Time", "Star Track", "Chushingura", "If You Feel", "Ice Cream Phoenix", "The House At Pooniel Corners" and more. CD

Harry MoscoCountry Boy ... LP
PMG (Austria), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
Sweet grooves from Harry Mosco – once the leader of The Funkees, but stepping out here with some wicked work from the London scene at the end of the 70s! The album's got a snapping electric vibe – sometimes clubby, but with more of a funk feel overall – thanks to some heavy basslines that really give the best cuts a kind of darkness – as do the horns, which create these down-turning inflections that are quite different than the usual sort of Afro-styled groove! Things get pretty freewheeling as the album moves on – and there's a criss-crossing of modes that almost reminds us of some of the work that Ice cut on the French scene of the time. Titles include "I Feel Funky", "Harry's Party", "It's Too Late", "Country Boy", and "Wanderer". LP, Vinyl record album

The first full length classic from Spice 1 – an MC who came up in the wake of Too Short on the west coast, but has definitely found his own style by the time of this set! Some tracks almost have an Ice Cube mix of biting social commentary and view from the streets – while others are maybe more in the crossover gangsta vein that would rise strongly in years to come. Samples are all obvious, but well-used – records from Funkadelic, Curtis Mayfield, Marvin Gaye, and Isaac Hayes – and the album also features some tight mixing and production from Ant Banks. Titles include "In My Neighborhood", "187 Proof", "Peace To My Nine", "Welcome To The Ghetto", "Money Or Murder", "City Streets", and "Break Yourself". LP, Vinyl record album

This is Waits in after hours yearning mode, still upright on a barstool or a piano bench, not yet having fallen in a gutter. It's one of his best records. Includes "Ol' 55", "I Hope That I Don't Fall In Love With You", "Midnight Lullaby", the beautiful "Martha" – which still one of his best written songs), plus "Rosie", "Lonely", "Ice Cream Man", "Closing Time", "Grapefruit Moon", and "Little Trip To Heaven".

YoungbloodsRock Festival ... LP
Warner, 1970. Very Good ... $1.99
A record with a bit of a joke on the cover, but one that's also got a much more mature version of The Youngbloods than just a few years before – a group who are moving past straighter folk, bringing in bits of psych and jazz elements – yet still also keeping their cool a lot more than most of their contemporaries! The mix of acoustic and electric elements is wonderful – these compressed guitar lines that are sometimes complex, sometimes flowing in waves – working with very inventive drums and percussion from Joe Bauer – who maybe even nods towards freer jazz styles at times. Piano is acoustic and electric, woven by Banana beautifully around the lead lyrics of Jesse Colin Young – on titles that include "It's A Lovely Day", "Sea Cow Boogie", "Misty Roses", "On Beautiful Lake Spenard", "Fiddler A Dram", and "Ice Bag".

VariousLooking Through A Glass Onion – The Beatles' Psychedelic Songbook 1966 to 1972 (3CD set) ... CD
Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 3CD ... $24.99
An explosive look at the mighty songwriting legacy of The Beatles – served up here in a giant 3CD package that features the group's famous songs covered by a whole group of their contemporaries on the UK scene! You'd think that most of these artists might be jealous, or resentful – not wanting to give a nod to the songwriting skills of Lennon, McCartney, or Harrison – but instead, they really revel in the tunes – often really transforming them, and completely making them their own – in ways that follow some of the best inspirations of the new psych generation, and which make the whole collection a lot better than just some straight rehash of hits by the fab four! The song selection is brilliant – dozens of tracks that we never would have heard otherwise – and as with all Grapefruit packages like this, the whole thing comes with a detailed booklet of notes on the music – way more information than you'd find even if you spent the whole day searching online. 68 tracks in all – with work from The Sorrows, Ice, The Spectrum, Real McCoy, The Eyes, Loose Ends, Rainbow Ffolly, Affinity, Yes, Blonde On Blonde, Spooky Tooth, Big Jim Sullivan, The Gods, Orange Bicycle, The Tremeloes, Jason Crest, Tomorrow, Circus, The Hollies, Camel, and many others!

VariousPunk 45 Vol 1– Kill The Hippies! Kill Yourself! – Underground Punk In The USA 1973 to 1980 ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s. Used ... $14.99
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.

VariousStone Crush – Memphis Modern Soul 1977 to 1987 ... CD
Light In The Attic, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
A look at Memphis soul music that goes way beyond any Stax, Goldwax, or Atlantic Records collections you might own – partly because all of the tracks here are from a time in the city when all those other labels had stopped recording! Memphis is usually remembered for a 60s/early 70s stretch when the city was brimming over with record labels, studios, and top soul talent – but that latter aspect of the scene didn't stop when the record companies went bust – and instead, it just went underground, as lesser-known artists kept on developing great new sounds and styles! As you'd guess from the title, most of the work here is in a modern soul mode – often with rhythms that have a bit of boogie or club in the mix, but also with some of that developing southern soul approach that was maybe more strongly associated with the Malaco label down in Jackson. The scope of music is great, and the set's got very detailed notes on this under-documented time in the history of Memphis soul music – to support a great tracklist that includes "Can We Melt The Ice" by Morris, "You Mean Everything To Me" by Sweet Pearl, "The Doctor" by LA, "Stone Crush On You" by OT Skyes, "What Does It Take To Know A Woman Like You" by Greg Mason, "Always" by Silk Satin & Lace, "Right Thing" by Kick, "Convict Me" by Libra, "Slice Of Heaven" by Cato, "I'm Choosing You" by Magic Morris, "No Seat Dancin" by Frankie Alexander, and "Keep It To Yourself" by Captain Fantastic & Starr Fleet.

✨✧ Modern LoversModern Lovers Live ... LP
Beserkley, 1977. Sealed ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Jonathan Richman at his childish best – working live with a later version of the Modern Lovers, after he kicked out all the rock stars! Richman at this point was a fragile genius – really concerned (honestly) with "making music that didn't hurt kids' ears". As such, he spends a lot of time working through simple – and wonderful themes best summed up by the titles of tunes like "I'm A Little Airplane", "Hey There Little Insect", "New England", "Ice Cream Man", and "The Morning Of Our Lives". And while it's easy to say that this Richman isn't nearly as punk rock as you'd like him to be, there's also a strange appeal to these tunes – like Jonathan's retreated to a kind, gentle, safe space – after seeing all the damage that the punk rock kids he inspired had done! Honestly, we used to pass this one up all the time – but now we really dig it a lot! LP, Vinyl record album

The first 2 Shuggie Otis albums on one CD – and with bonus material, too! Shuggie's well known for his trippy guitar work and vocals on the famous album Inspiration Information, and both of these sets predate that one – showing Shuggie in his formative years, stepping off some early work with his father Johnny Otis, and forging a messed-up mixture of soul, funk, and blues that forever made him one of the odder talents of his generation! Here Comes Shuggie Otis is more of a blues-driven effort, but still has some great guitar work from young Shuggie – but on Freedom Flight, he really takes off. The album's really the birthplace of Otis' psychedelic funky style, and is filled with cool little tracks that groove in a cosmically trippy way! The CD features the tracks "Oxford Gray", "Ice Cold Daydream", "Strawberry Letter 23", "Freedom Flight", "Purple", "Someone's Always Singing", "Sweet Thang", "Me & My Woman", "Funky Thithee", and "The Hawks" – plus the bonus cut "One Room Country Shack".

Snoop Dogg's last and best album for No Limit – a turn of the millennium effort that stands a a lot stronger in retrospect, and certainly signaling the coming resurgence Snoop would carrying pretty strongly in the new decade. After Death Row hit hard times and Snoop found into the No Limit camp, things didn't seem to be working so well, but inch by inch, Snoop seized more creative control and by this one, we're back to the Snoop we know and love. A bit odd looking back on it, but thankfully much of the record is produced by Dr Dre, with a few cuts from Timbaland, Jelly Roll, & Scott Storch. Includes guest spots for Nate Dogg, Eve, Lady Of Rage, Ice Cube, & KoKane, – and tracks include "Hennesey N Buddah", "Snoop Dogg (What's My Name Pt 2)", "Wrong Idea", "Set It Off", "Ready 2 Ryde", "Loosen Control", "Y'all Gone Miss Me", "Stacey Adams", and "I Can't Swim".

Joe Tex bumps with the best of his contemporaries in the 70s – but at a level that still holds onto all the warmth and humanity of his earlier recordings too! There's definitely a bit of a dancefloor groove to the record, but it never dampens the spirit in Joe's vocals – and in a way, the approach is somewhat similar to that used by Tyrone Davis and Johnnie Taylor for some of their own albums at Columbia in the late 70s. Joe's longtime producer Buddy Killen is on deck, to ensure that the spirit is just right – and some of the best tracks are more midtempo funky than out and out club numbers. The set's gotten a lot of new attention in recent years, after the great track "I Almost Got To Heaven Once" was sampled to great effect by Ice Cube – and titles also include the funky "Ain't Gonna Bump No More", which was Joe's big disco hit – plus "Be Cool", "We Held On", "Hungry For Your Love", and "Leaving You Dinner".

The lineup is large, but works together nicely – pulling together elements of jazz, Brazilian, funk, and more organic styles into a rich tapestry of sound – all based on Zawinul tunes that include "Ice Pick Willy", "The Peasant", "Good Day", "Great Empire", "Sultan", and "Peace".

A really wonderful collection – an important re-investigation of the unusual mix of sounds and styles on the New York scene in the years after disco – a time when funk, punk, hip hop, and art were all colliding at once – providing a really fresh antidote to the staid sounds of Studio 54! The "disco" in the title should be taken lightly – as these cuts didn't play at the slick uptown dance spots – but were instead the soundtrack for the cool spots happening downtown, as the previous loft culture morphed into clubs, in this very special blend of the energy of CBGB and the underground soulful dancefloors. The set list is filled with classics from this time – and titles include "Cavern" by Liquid Liquid, "Tell You Today (voc)" by Loose Joints, "Walking On Thin Ice (re-edit)" by Yoko Ono, "Over & Over" by Material, "Spasticus Autisticus (version)" by Ian Dury & The Seven Seas Players, "Kiss Me Again (original edit)" by Dinosaur, "Move" by Nicky Siano, "School Bell/Tree House" by Indian Ocean, "I Walk" by Don Cherry, "Voices Inside My Head" by Common Sense, and "Wheel Me Out" by Was Not Was.

Those rare treasures are brought forth here – in a beautiful package that's also overflowing with fantastic notes that finally give this lost history its due – all handled by Al Kent – who's a hell of a mixer himself, as well as an underground club historian. 3CD set is overflowing with gems – and titles include "I Just Wanna Say I Love You (John Luongo rmx)" by Leon Collins, "What About Love (Tony Gioe rmx)" by Marboo, "Ten Percent (Walter Gibbons Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by Double Exposure, "Inside America (Rick Gianatos disco queen acetate edit)" by Juggy Murray Jones, "Dancing Free (John Luongo rmx)" by Hot Ice, "Black Water Gold (Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by The Sunshine Band, "Magic Bird Of Fire (Francois Kevorkian Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by Salsoul Orchestra, "It's Good For The Soul (Jay Negron Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by Salsoul Orchestra, "My Love Is Free (Walter Gibbons disco madness rmx)" by Double Exposure, "Reaching Out For Happiness (Jonathan Fearing rmx)" by Fay Hauser, "Let Me Be Your Fantasy (Tom Savarese rmx)" by Love Symphony Orchestra, "The Beat Goes On & On (Jim Burgess rmx)" by Ripple, "I Wanna Be Near You (John Morales Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by Ruby Andrews, "I've Been Looking For Somebody (Walter Gibbons rmx)" by TC James & The Fist O Funk Orchestra, "The Disco Scene (Rick Gianatos rmx)" by Lake Shore Drive, "Bumpsie's Whipping Cream (Tom Savarese rmx)" by TC James & The Fist O Funk Orchestra, "Janice (Bobby DJ Guttadoro rmx)" by Skip Mahoney, "My Number's Up (Tee Scott rmx)" by The Salsoul Orchestra, "The Love Bug Done Bit Me Again (David Todd rmx)" by Skyliners, "LA Sunshine (Robert Ouimet rmx)" by Aura, "Love Has Come My Way (Jim Burgess rmx)" by Tony Valor Sound Orchestra, "Handsome Ma (Bobby DJ Guttadoro rmx)" by Sparkle Tuhran & Friends, "Love Thang (Tee Scott rmx)" by First Choice, "Burn Me Up (Jellybean Benitez edit)" by Kay Gees, "Love Is The Message (Tee Scott rmx)" by Brooklyn Express, "Changes (Jellybean Benitez rmx)" by Chain Reaction, "J'Ouvert (Frank Sestito rmx)" by John Gibbs & The Jam Band, "By The Way You Dance (Bobby DJ Guttadaro rmx)" by Bunny Sigler, "It's Good For The Soul (Walter Gibbons disco madness version)" by Salsoul Orchestra, and "It's A Better Than Good Time (Walter Gibbons rmx)" by Gladys Knight & The Pips.

BGP (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Funk, soul and funky soul from the Bay Area – fantastic early-to-mid 70s numbers from the scene sprung from Ray Dobard's Music City Record Shops and label – numbers by Darando, Chucky Thurmon, Houston Outlaws, Kevin Burton, Benida Madison, Dry Ice, Victor Green, Love Uprisers, Soul Messengers and more! The artists nail a number of funky modes here – from raw, rumbling stripped down numbers to more grooving organ backed gems, both tightly snapping and loosely lumbering numbers, a bit of jazz funk and more – usually with powerhouse vocals. 17 tracks in all: "Just A Man" by Chucky Thurmon", "The Rock That Killed Goliath" by Al Tanner, "Is It Right" by Kevin Burton, "Time Flies" by Benida Madison, "A Lonely Place" by Bob Carson, "Eddie Boogaloo" by Love Uprisers, "Ruby Dee" by The Cookin' Bag, "Gimme Some (Version 1)" by Darando and more.

MGM/Light In The Attic, Late 60s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Pure genius from Lee Hazlewood – one of his gems cut for MGM in the 60s, and a session that features some great small combo backings! The feel here is almost a jazz-inflected take on the slight country tinge of Lee's other work – a style that's as sophisticated and unique as Hazlewood's well-penned lyrics and amazing vocals. Lee's completely at home here – working with the great engineer Eddie Brackett, who's sound for his vocals is just about as great as could be hoped – the matchless blend of ice and embers that perfectly defines the Hazlewood sound. All tunes are originals by Lee – and tracks include "Shades", "This Town", "Stone Cold Blues", "Child", "Little War", "Hands", "Fort Worth", "Them Girls", and "Mannford Oklahoma".

Chess, 1950s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A great entry in the Chess Heritage Series at the end of the 60s – one that features rare 50s Chicago recordings by Elmore James, plus some even more obscure sides by lesser-known singer John Brim! James' style is well known, and well-executed here – rough and raw, but with a good sense of focus – on tracks that include "Whose Muddy Shoes", "I See My Baby", "My Best Friend", "The Sun Is Shining", "Madison Blues", and "Talk To Me Baby". Brim is great too – a singer we didn't know before this record, with an all-out kind of quality in his voice that's almost a bit like some of the rougher soul of the 60s at times. Brim sings "Lifetime Baby", "Ice Cream Man", "You Got Me", and "Rattlesnake". Includes the bonus track "Lifetime Baby". CD

✨✧ Kanye WestLate Registration ... LP
Def Jam, 2005. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
Time will tell whether the sophomore LP Late Registration will prove to be as revolutionary of a commercial force as College Dropout turned out to be – but it's a better album! We loved the debut as much as the rest of the world did, but this one's an easier listen from beginning to end. The production is tight, the guests earn their spots, and the whole thing's furiously soulful. Much is being made of LA hipster/orch pop troubadour Jon Brion's co-production, but this is Kanye's show. On one level Kanye can rock a subject as cliched as "Gold Digger", and still come out with a fresh perspective that runs deeper than it sounds on the surface, then deliver a serious track about the evils of the diamond trade that still rocks the ice. And those are just the first singles. Another great one! Tracks include "Wake Up Mr West", "Heard 'Em Say", "Touch The Sky" feat Lupe Fiasco, "Gold Digger" feat Jamie Foxx, "Drive Slow" feat Paul Wall & GLC, "My Way Home" feat Common, "Crack Music" feat Game, "Roses", "Bring Me Down" feat Brandy, "Diamonds From Sierra Leone" (rmx) feat Jay-Z, "We Major" feat Nas & Really Doe, "Gone" feat Consequence & Cam'Ron and more!

King, Mid 50s. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
Hard-wailing tenor work from one of the wildest 50s saxophonists – Big Jay McNeely, a great player who took the instrument to unheard-of heights during the decade! McNeely's big claim to fame was his live shows at the time – where he and the audience would go crazy in ways that prefaced guitar heroes of the 70s – but this classic collection of recordings he did for King is probably still one of the best ways to hear his genius in action, handled throughout with the kind of raw production we love from King Records! The set's got lots of tasty little originals, like "Rock Candy", "The Goof", "Big Jay Shuffle", "Hot Cinders", "Ice Water", "Mule Walk", and "Hard Tack". LP, Vinyl record album

The Mocambos are back, and mightier than ever – thanks to help from a lineup of all-stars who include Lee Fields, Jswiss, Ice T, Gizelle Smith, and even German sci-fi legend Peter Thomas! The core sound of the group is as before – tight funk by a large ensemble of all-star players who've worked in a variety of other contemporary funk settings – but the addition of deeper soul and hip hop vocals to the record really opens things up – and maybe makes us appreciate the instrumentation at the core even more, since these guys do so a great job of moving around to accommodate the setting. And yet the whole thing is still strongly unified with Mighty Mocambos power – a great take on older funk modes, on titles that include "Stronger", "Return To Space", "Golden Shadow", "Take On The World", "Here We Go", "Bounce That Ass", "Where Do We Go From Here", and "Macumba".

BGP (UK), Late 60s/1970s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Some of the greatest funky work you could ever hope to find by Johnny Otis! The package brings together tracks recorded by Johnny in his fantastic post-R&B years – the late 60s and 1970s, when he was scrappling around a variety of small labels, but also getting the chance to use that freedom to cut some incredibly great work! The spirit of the CD retains all the great feel of Johnny's funky live show – as it runs through a variety of different artists, from hip instrumentalists to sock-soul divas to Johnny himself, who's still sounding pretty darn funky at the time! There's some killer material here that makes the package an instant "must-have" for fans of heavy heavy funk – and titles include "Watts Breakaway" by Johnny Otis, "Country Girl" by The Johnny Otis Show, "But I Ain't No More (GSTSKDTS)" by Vera Hamilton, "Spells & Incantations" by Debbie Lyndsey, "Cool Ade" by Preston Love, "Funky Disco Boogie" by Demar & Carla, "I Don't Understand It" by Ice Water Slim & The Fourth Floor, "If You'd Be Mine" by Shuggie Otis, "Comin At Ya Baby" by Johnny Otis, "Jaws" by Johnny Otis, "Hey Boy!

Polydor/Future Days, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A weird and wild little record – and one that came as quite a surprise to folks who'd previously known Link Wray as the king of the raunchy guitar instrumental in the 60s! Here, Link sings as well as plays – working in his legendary Three Track Shack, which was located in Maryland, but has a vibe that feels like it came right out of the Louisiana swamps! The style of the music follows suit – almost as if Link saw folks like Tony Joe White, Bobby Charles, and some of their contemporaries – and tried to find his unique take on the raunchy blend of roots rock, country, and maybe some occasional funky currents. Polydor cleaned the album up a bit for release – but no too much – and titles include "Juke Box Mama", "Rise & Fall Of Jimmy Stokes", "La De Da", "Black River Swamp", "Tail Dragger", "Ice People", and "Fire & Brimstone".

✨✧ VariousBreakdance/Breakdance 2 (Breakin/Breakin 2) – Original Soundtracks ... CD
Polydor/Cherry Pop (UK), 1984. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A pair of 80s street soul soundtracks – Breakin and Breakin 2 – reissued here with the title as Breakdance, which is how they appeared in the UK! Maybe Breakin wasn't the most accurate, most faithful portrait of life on the streets in the early 80s – but the film was a great breakout moment for hip hop culture in the mainstream, and also helped sell the new style with a heavy dose of soul! The real stars here are Ollie & Jerry – who deliver two of the album's best tracks – "Breakin There's No Stoppin Us" and "Showdown" – but the set's also got some other great 80s soul and funk tracks – including "Ain't Nobody" by Rufus & Chaka Khan, "Freakshow On The Dance Floor" by The Bar-Kays, the smooth club hit "99 1/2" by Carol Lynn Townes, "Body Work" by Hot Streak, "Street People" by Fire Fox, "Heart Of The Beat" by 3V, and "Reckless" by Chris "The Glove" Taylor – featuring vocals by a young Ice T! Breakin 2 is maybe an even better soundtrack than the first entry in the series – and not just because it gave the world the term "electric boogaloo"! The team of Ollie & Jerry seem almost fully in charge here – and in addition to creating some great tracks of their own, they also produce some other beat box gems that are equally great – nestled here alongside some well-chosen street soul groovers too! Titles include "Electric Boogaloo" and "When I C U" by Ollie & Jerry – plus "Stylin Profilin" and "Radiotron" by Firefox, "Din Daa Daa" by George Kranz, "Gotta Have The Money" by Steve Donn, "Believe In The Beat" by Carol Lynn Townes, "I Don't Want To Come Down" by Mark Scott, "See It Out" by Midway, and "Oye Mamacita" by Rags & Riches.

✨✧ VariousStone Crush – Memphis Modern Soul 1977 to 1987 (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Light In The Attic, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
A look at Memphis soul music that goes way beyond any Stax, Goldwax, or Atlantic Records collections you might own – partly because all of the tracks here are from a time in the city when all those other labels had stopped recording! Memphis is usually remembered for a 60s/early 70s stretch when the city was brimming over with record labels, studios, and top soul talent – but that latter aspect of the scene didn't stop when the record companies went bust – and instead, it just went underground, as lesser-known artists kept on developing great new sounds and styles! As you'd guess from the title, most of the work here is in a modern soul mode – often with rhythms that have a bit of boogie or club in the mix, but also with some of that developing southern soul approach that was maybe more strongly associated with the Malaco label down in Jackson. The scope of music is great, and the set's got very detailed notes on this under-documented time in the history of Memphis soul music – to support a great tracklist that includes "Can We Melt The Ice" by Morris, "You Mean Everything To Me" by Sweet Pearl, "The Doctor" by LA, "Stone Crush On You" by OT Skyes, "What Does It Take To Know A Woman Like You" by Greg Mason, "Always" by Silk Satin & Lace, "Right Thing" by Kick, "Convict Me" by Libra, "Slice Of Heaven" by Cato, "I'm Choosing You" by Magic Morris, "No Seat Dancin" by Frankie Alexander, and "Keep It To Yourself" by Captain Fantastic & Starr Fleet.

Ice Cube's voice pops in and out, but for the most part settles into production and has songwriting role here – this is is definitely the T-Bone, J-Dee and Shorty show – with heavy headnodding funk beats and street smart rhymes that make it fitting spinoff and spiritual successor to AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted. Includes "Buck Tha Devil", "Lost In Tha System", "Guerillas In The Mist", "Freedom Got An AK", "Inside Tha Head of a Black Man", "Lord Have Mercy" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Strut (UK), 2000. New Copy 3LP (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A really wonderful collection – an important re-investigation of the unusual mix of sounds and styles on the New York scene in the years after disco – a time when funk, punk, hip hop, and art were all colliding at once – providing a really fresh antidote to the staid sounds of Studio 54! The "disco" in the title should be taken lightly – as these cuts didn't play at the slick uptown dance spots – but were instead the soundtrack for the cool spots happening downtown, as the previous loft culture morphed into clubs, in this very special blend of the energy of CBGB and the underground soulful dancefloors. The set list is filled with classics from this time – and titles include "Cavern" by Liquid Liquid, "Tell You Today (voc)" by Loose Joints, "Walking On Thin Ice (re-edit)" by Yoko Ono, "Over & Over" by Material, "Spasticus Autisticus (version)" by Ian Dury & The Seven Seas Players, "Kiss Me Again (original edit)" by Dinosaur, "Move" by Nicky Siano, "School Bell/Tree House" by Indian Ocean, "I Walk" by Don Cherry, "Voices Inside My Head" by Common Sense, and "Wheel Me Out" by Was Not Was.

BGP (UK), Late 60s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Funky blues galore – not the kind of sad, weepy blues of the old days – but the kind of gritty grooves that really broke big during the 60s and 70s funky generation! Most numbers here mix older blues elements with sharp snapping drums and tight rolling basslines – a sweet fusion of roots and contemporary sounds from the 70s – served up by a mix of well-known artists and lesser-known geniuses! The track selection is superb, with loads of tracks we'd never heard before – and the set's exactly the kind of collection that has us running back to BGP/Ace year after year – and digging everything they ever do. And even if you're not usually a blues fan, if you dig funky sounds you'll find plenty to love here – with titles that include "Walk On" by Finis Tasby, "Gimme Some Of Yours" by Artie White, "I Want You" by Smokey Wilson, "It's Real" by Jimmy Robins, "Sister Rose" by Shakey Jake Harris, "Them Love Blues" by Earl Wright, "I Finally Got You" by Jimmy McCracklin, "He Made You Mine" by Big Daddy Rucker, "Lovemaker" by Lowell Fulsom, "Getting Down With You" by Obrey Wilson, "Don't Down Me People" by Memphis Soul, and "I Don't Understand It" by Ice Water Slim & The Fourth Floor.

Playback, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Overlooked genius from The Dynamics – a Detroit soul group of the 60s, and one who never fully got the fame they deserved, had they gotten some sort of bigger exposure on Motown! Yet that's what also makes these guys great, too – as they've got that tight sound that the Motor City could do so well at the time, but a looseness too – a more fluid approach to their music that really makes things interesting here – as the group work through some wonderful material on rare late 60s singles for the RCA and Cotillion labels, as well as an obscure 1977 final single for Columbia! The package is a much-needed look at these overlooked moments from the group – and are a great complement to their few full length albums – bracketing the years before and afterwards, with a treasure trove of group soul material. Titles included "Lights Out", "Love Me", "Ain't No Love At All", "I Want To Thank You", "Murder In The First Degree", "We Found Love", "You Can Make It If You Try", "Ice Cream Song", "What Would I Do", "Ain't No Sun", and "I Need Your Love" LP, Vinyl record album

It's really all about a light, airy mood here – the beats sink into the organic atmosphere, rather than pounding you over the head the way more hip hop or club oriented instrumentals so often do. A really nice independent effort – and very sweet discovery! 13 tracks including "Neighborhood", "Ithaca Summer", "Invented Bird", "Dead Mall", "Cedar Chest", "Capsize", "Chalkies", "Ice Stopped" and others.

✨✧ David HessLast House On The Left – Original 1972 Motion Picture Soundtrack (brown colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
One Way Static, 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
David Hess's chillingly great soundtrack to one of the most notorious horror movies of the 70s – Wes Craven's Last House On The Left! Hess's musical pedigree is that of a folk and rock songwriter – and one of the things that makes his songs for Last House On The Left so effective is the way his delicate, tuneful songcraft contrasts with the terrifyingly real sadism and revenge on screen. The other thing that makes it so effective, is that Hess himself portrays the despicable Krug in the film – taking part in said cruelty! The soundtrack has Hess's oddly lovely little songs, along with some incidental period touches, swatches of dialogue and instrumental bits – composed in collaboration with Steve Chapin. This version from One Way Static is totally top notch, too – with liner notes by exploitation cinema and genre veterans Ruggero Deodato, Franco Nero, Ulli Lommel and others. Includes "Little Cows Lookin' For Some Grass", "Baddie's Theme (Instrumental)", "Mari's Birthday Surprise", "Phyllis Spills Her Guts", "Now You're All Alone", "The Chase", "Daddy, Put Your Coat Of Many Colors On", "Mayhem Montage", "Ice Cream Song", "Urban Snatch", "Edude For Chainsaw/Goodbye, Dick" and more.

President/Lion, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A unique British group from the start of the 70s – and that's saying quite a lot, given how many unique groups were part of that scene at the time! Sweet Slag aren't really psych or hard rock, but they have equal bits of both – folded into a style that's maybe more the sort of mode that you'd get from the American underground a few years later – especially in the pre-metal albums from the "private press" world that always seems to get a lot of attention in recent years – but with a performance level that's much more skilled and adventurous! The guitar work by Mick Kerensky is wonderful – sometimes back there a bit, but then strutting out with these incredible solos when in the spotlight – and the quartet also features these amazing moments on alto, soprano sax, and flute from Paul Jolly – informed by deeper currents of the late 60s Brit jazz scene, but used in different ways than the jazz/rock that was taking over the mainstream – almost more avant at moments, which makes for quite a contrast to the guitar. Titles include "Twisted Trip Woman", "Rain Again", "Milk Train", "Specific", "World Of Ice", and "Babyi Ar". LP, Vinyl record album
