Jimmy SmithBluesmith ... LP
Verve, 1972. Very Good Gatefold ... $9.99
One of the hippest Jimmy Smith albums of the early 70s – a lean and mean, down and dirty, back to basics session for Verve – one that's got plenty of grit in the grooves! L:ike the Root Down album, this set is recorded live with a very stretched out feel – tracks that take Jimmy Smith back to the more open-ended styles of his roots, and get past some of the slicker notes of later years. There's not as much heavy funk as on Root Down, but the sound is still equally great – with plenty of sharp edges on the instrumentation, which includes Jimmy's Hammond alongside bass from Leroy Vinnegar, tenor from Teddy Edwards, guitar from Ray Crawford, drums from Donald Dean, and congas from Victor Pantoja. One title – "Blues For 3 + 1" – hits a great little groove that's almost bossa-funky – and other tracks include "Absolutely Funky", "Lolita", "Bluesmith", and "Mournin Wes". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ben WesthoffOriginal Gangstas – The Untold Story Of Dr Dre, Eazy E, Ice Cube, Tupac Shakur & The Birth Of West Coast Rap (hardcover) ... Book
Hachette, 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Well, maybe the story's not totally "untold" – but Ben Westhoff paints a picture that's a lot more detailed than most, and with a good sense of historical perspective – past the hype and the grudges, with a good eye towards clarifying some of the trickier issues! Westhoff spent over five years researching the book, and the details definitely show in the writing – although Ben also provides a nice narrative flow to really keep things moving. The vibe's a bit like his book Dirty South – on the southern rap scene – and this edition is 422 pages, with a section of images in the middle. Book

Whit Boyd ComboDracula – The Dirty Old Man (with bonus DVD) ... CD
Modern Harmonic, 1969. New Copy ... $17.99 18.99
Dracula never sounded so funky – thanks to the mighty sounds of the Whit Boyd Combo! Boyd was a porn peddler in 60s Texas, but also cut a few great soundtracks for his smutty films – including this wonderful romp that's full of funky drums, heavy organ, off-tuned guitar, and even a bit of tenor from time to time – all with a vibe that's a bit like a Prestige Records combo being let loose to score some b-grade film for the grindhouse scene! Some tracks are short, others are nice and long – and the music is nicely rough around the edges, with occasional production touches to make things sound spooky – but a nicely strong soul jazz vibe at the core. Titles include "Chase Music For Girl In A Cave", "Music Number Five", "Dracula The Dirty Old Man Theme", "Fast Music Trailer", and "Peppy Music For A Dating Scene". CD features four more tracks "Music Number Four", "Three Minutes Of Love Music", "Six Minutes Of Music To Make Love By", and "Dracula's Close Up". CD

✨✧ Black SabbathTechnical Ecstasy ... CD
Warner/Essential (UK), 1976. Used ... $6.99
The cover here looks a bit slicker than some of the other Black Sabbath albums of the 70s – but the sound is anything but, and still flies the flag of all the greatness the group had to offer! The set was recorded at the famous Criteria Studios in Miami – home to some great soul sessions in the early part of the decade – and Tommy Iommi gives the band a sharp edge in the studio, bringing the guitars up and Ozzy's vocals into a nice sort of focus – reminding the world that Sabbath can still kick the ass of newcomers like AC/DC when needed. And like late 70s material by Led Zeppelin, which some purists of the time tend to dismiss – from the backward perspective of 40 years, the album sounds pretty darn great to our ears! Titles include "She's Gone", "Dirty Women", "It's Alright", "Gypsy", "Back Street Kids", "You Won't Change Me", and "All Moving Parts". CD

Glen Brown & OthersCheck The Winner – The Original Pantomine Instrumental Collection 1970 to 1974 ... LP
VP, Early 70s. New Copy ... $19.99 23.98
Glen Brown's often the producer here – helming the decks on a host of classic cuts from the early 70s – but he also emerges as the main character too, at times when he steps to the mic and adds in a bit of encouragement to the proceedings! Brown's not really working in deejay mode – he's more in the background on most cuts, but then gets to shine as the lead artist on some of the later tracks in the package – especially the numbers that feature Glen on melodica, blowing the sweet keyboard with a spacious style that's a bit like Augustus Pablo! Titles include "Get Up" by Ron Wilson, "Scatter Light Rock" by Ron Wilson & Lennox Brown, "Dirty Harry" by Tommy McCook & Richard Hall, "Determination Skank" by Tommy McCook & Glen Brown, "Mr Ball Head Aitken" by Bobby Aitken, and the Glen Brown cuts "No More Slavery", "Crisp As A Ball", "Pantomine Rock", "The Winner", "Mitchville Rock", and "School Call".

✨✧ Roy BuchananLoading Zone ... LP
Atlantic, 1974. Very Good+ ... $9.99
One of those 70s rock albums that seems to turn up in a fair bit of collections of hip soul and jazz – a bit like the work of Harvey Mandel, and with a similar blend of blues rock currents with farther-reaching ideals! Roy Buchanan is spectacular on the guitar here – the kind of player who almost could have fronted a bigger arena rock group, given his chops – but who choses instead to keep things close to the chest, with the more down to earth vibe of his look on the cover – even though his playing here is pretty outta sight. Roy's got some great help on the album – including some of the MGs on a version of "Green Onions" – plus more guitar from Steve Cropper on other tracks, plus piano from Jan Hammer, bass from Stanley Clarke, and drums from Narada Michael Walden. Other titles include "Judy", "Your Love", "Done Your Daddy Dirty", "The Circle", and "Hidden". LP, Vinyl record album

Duke EllingtonDuke Ellington Meets Coleman Hawkins (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Impulse, 1962. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... On January 28, 2022
The meeting of two classic talents late in their careers – in a setting that's ideal to bring out all the complexity of their well-honed genius! The approach of the album is mostly an Ellington one – as the group features some of Duke's stalwarts, like Ray Nance, Johnny Hodges, Harry Carney, Lawrence Brown, and Aaron Bell – but Coleman Hawkins gets plenty of space as the main soloist on each number, alongside Duke, who also solos strongly on piano! As with most later records by the players, the writing is great – with a lot more dark moments than you'd expect – and titles include "The Rictic", "You Dirty Dog", "Limbo Jazz", "Wanderlust", and "Self Portrait Of The Bean".

JBsFunky Good Time – The Anthology ... CD
Polydor, Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $11.99 29.98
A killer 2CD set of funky grooves by one of the best backing bands ever! The JBs were James Brown's legendary combo during his monster funk years of the early 70s – and this well-selected compilation brings together 30 rare tracks from their best years! The set's got a great set of notes – and it stretches beyond work by the JBs alone to include cuts from other groupings of the band, like Maceo & The Macks, The Last Word, The First Family, and The New JBs. Titles include "Rockin Funky Watergate", "Keep On Bumpin Before You Give Out Of Gas", "Soul Power 74", "My Brother (parts 1 & 2)", "The Grunt (parts 1 & 2)", "Dirty Harri", "More Peas", "Watermelon Man", "Givin Up Food For Funk (parts 1 & 2)", "JB Shout", "Blessed Blackness", "Same Beat (parts 1, 2, & 3)", and "Gimme Some More (Very Live)".

Rudy Ray MooreCockpit – The Third Rudy Ray Moore Album ... CD
Kent/Dolemite, Early 70s. New Copy ... $5.99 12.98
Rudy Ray Moore flies the friendly skies – and turns out one of his best records of the 70s! The set is easily one of the tightest albums from Rudy's classic years – and uses a fair bit of musical backings beneath his very raunchy comedy – in ways that are sometimes funky, but also have jazzier or more soulful moments – with the kind of vibe that was common for performers like Moore in a club – as they'd usually have a small combo grooving along with their jokes. Rudy's classic "Petey Wheatstraw – The Devil's Son-In-Law" is done here in a nice extended version – and other tracks include "Have You Seen My Mule", "Like A Brother", "The Big Shipwreck", "Mop Bucket", and "Pool Shooting Monkey". And yes, the title is something of a dirty joke – but isn't that what you buy Rudy Ray Moore albums for in the first place! CD

Ohio PlayersFire ... CD
Mercury, 1975. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
One of the biggest albums ever for Ohio Players – a set that took their earlier funk sound and targeted firmly at the mainstream with a lean, mean groove that a million other groups copied at the time! There's still plenty of the soul of the early years in the group's approach here – and sometimes, the mellower tracks show a wonderful talent for harmonies coming even more fully to the top. But the real appeal of the record has always been the bold, bassy grooves that hit strongly just as ensemble funk was exploding in the mainstream during the early years of disco – making plenty of space for the Players and their contemporaries to grab up new audiences who never would have touched a record like this five years before! There's plenty of grit in the grooves on the best numbers – a style that's maybe not as dirty as on Westbound, but still more than enough to make any real funk fan proud. Titles include "Fire", "Together", "Together/Feelings", "It's All Over", "Runnin' From the Devil", "Smoke", "What The Hell", and "I Want To Be Free". CD

A great late 80s return to form for Lou Reed – a record set in a New York that's a bit different than the gritty one of his youth, but which is captured here by Lou with that vivid sense of songwriting that always made his urban themes some of the best in rock and roll! The set's designed to be listened to straight through – like a book or a movie, Lou mentions in the notes – and the songs are set to well-crafted guitar work mostly by Reed, augmented with work from Mike Rathke – delivered in a vocal style that's found a newly-confident way of moving between singing and speech. Titles include "Dirty Blvd", "Endless Cycle", "Busload Of Faith", "Sick Of You", "Hold On Mr Waldheim", "Xmas In February", "Strawman", "Dime Store Mstery", "Romeo Had Juliette", and "The Last Great American Whale".

Cliffie StoneBarracuda – Gonna Shake This Shack Tonight ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... $16.99 18.99
The great Cliffie Stone was a key figure in the rise of country music on the west coast in the postwar years – a figure who linked together the music industry in Hollywood and the new talents coming up in Bakersfield – with a blend of sounds and styles that very much fit that mode! Back east, Cliffie might have been a hip bandleader mixing jazz and R&B – but out west, he also picked up a bit of twang – in a way that made his charts a great backdrop for singers who were likely to cross over big, and which also made Cliffie's own records pretty darn great too! This set's the best we've ever seen to focus on the very wide talents of Cliffie Stone – served up in a beautiful Bear Family package, and filled with great cuts that mix some of Cliffie's backings for others with his own recordings for Capitol. Titles include "Country Junction" and "Shotgun Boogie" by Tennessee Ernie Ford, "Gonna Marry That Gal" by Bob Roubian, "Bim Bam Baby" by Jeanne Gayle, and "Square Dance Boogie" by Les Gotcher – plus Cliffie Stone tunes that include "Barracuda", "He's A Real Gone Oakie", "Cream Of Kentucky", "Please Please", "Tater Pie", "Peepin Through The Keyhole", "Dirty Dishes", "B-One Baby", "Board Of Education", "Philosophy", "Here Comes The Train", and the great "Grunt Song".

Three DegreesGold (3CD set) ... CD
Philadelphia International/Crimson (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 3CD ... $11.99
A great collection of work from the Three Degrees – a female soul group who really found a way to move the music forward after the girl group years of the 60s! The trio had recorded previously, in a somewhat more standard style of Philly soul – but during the 70s they hooked up with the studio genius of Gamble & Huff, and managed to make some really amazing music that forever helped transform the style of female soul on the dancefloor! Their vocals are a perfect match for the soaring strings and lively rhythms of the Philly International groove – and the cuts are as sweet as they are grooving – a magical balance that few other groups could strike this well. This 3CD set is overflowing with great work – two tracks of regular cuts for Philly International, including work with MFSB – and a full CD with 10 more rare tracks – longer versions, single cuts, and live material. 40 tracks in all – with titles that include "Dirty Ol Man", "Woman In Love", "The Runner", "Jump The Gun", "Golden Lady", "Red Light", "Out Of Love Again", "Bodycheck", "Magic In The Air", "TSOP", "Love Is The Message", "Take Good Care Of Yourself", "La Chanson Populaire", "Giving Up Giving In", "My Simple Heart", "Free Ride (live)", "Starlight (long version)", "The Runner (extra long version)", "Love Train (live)", "Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me (live)", and "Living For The City/For The Love Of Money (live)".

Bill WatrousTiger Of San Pedro ... LP
Columbia, 1975. Near Mint- ... $7.99
An overlooked bit of 70s big band jamming – one of a few great sides cut for Columbia by trombonist Bill Watrous, done in a mode that's partially like the funky Maynard Ferguson records for the label at the time, but which also has some of the hipper and more expansive approaches that you'd get on some of Woody Herman's best from the period, or (even better) some of the MPS big band classics of the time! The playing is mostly all acoustic, but there is a bit of Fender Rhodes, clavinet, guitar, and organ on the session – bubbling under with a style that pumps up the groove nicely – bringing in a sound that's not entirely funky, but still tight, spacious, and syncopated enough to really kick into the tracks! Titles include "TS TS", "Somewhere Along The Way", "Dirty Dan", "Quiet Lady", and the excellent "Tiger Of San Pedro". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousAnn Arbor Blues Festival 1969 ... CD
Third Man, 1969. New Copy 2 CDs ... $18.99 19.98
A fantastic document of the first-ever Ann Arbor Blues Festival – the start of a great event that would blossom into other styles of music in the 70s, but which stood as a strong blues-based event in its initial year of 1969! In some ways, the three day series of concerts is a roots answer to Woodstock – which took place just a few weeks before – as the festival featured a great scope of blues talents, from the rootsier sort of artists who were recording for labels like Folkways or Arhoolie, to some of the sharper modern talents rising to the top on Chess or Delmark! The package alone is almost worth the price of admission – beautiful photographs of the event, detailed notes, and the first-ever release of this music – which has sat in the vaults for decades, finally to see the light of day. Titles include "Dirty Mother For You" by Roosevelt Sykes, "So Glad You're Mine" by Arthur Big Boy Crudup, "Everybody Must Suffer/Stone Crazy" by Luther Allison & The Blue Nebulae, "Help Me" by Junior Wells, "I Wonder Why" by Jimmy Dawkins, "Too Much Alcohol" by JB Hutto & His Hawks, "So Many Roads So Many Trains" by Otis Rush, "Long Distance Call" by Muddy Waters, "Off The Wall" by James Cotton Band, "Juanita" by Big Joe Williams, "Jelly Jelly Blues" by Shirley Griffin, "I Feel So Good" by Magic Sam, "Call It Stormy Monday" by T-Bone Walker, "Death Letter Blues" by Son House, "Key To The Highway" by Sam Lay, and "Mojo Hand" by Lightnin Hopkins.

VariousStax Of Funk Vol 2 – More Funky Truth ... CD
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $9.99
A mountain of funk from one of the greatest soul labels of all time! Stax is known round the world over for their soulful work – by singers like Otis Redding or Carla Thomas, and instrumental tunes by Booker T & The MGs – but the label was also quite a funky powerhouse – especially as the 60s drew to a close, and the management of the company got a lot hipper, and a heck of a lot more musically open-minded! This killer batch of tracks features 21 numbers from those days – including many obscure and funky tunes that only ever came out on singles, or which were recorded by artists that never made it as big as Stax stars from earlier years. The result of all that obscurity is an extremely fresh selection of tracks – plenty of down-n-dirty funky 45 numbers, played by hip Memphis combos, and featuring some really deep soul vocals. Titles include "Dark Skin Woman" by Sir Mack Rice, "Ain't No Sin" by John Kasandra, "Bump & Boogie" by The Wrecking Crew, "Shame On The Family Name" by Calvin Scott, "Cool Strut" by Bernie Hayes, "Bump Mean" by Sir Mack Rice, "Soul Machine" by Reggie Milner, "How Can You Mistreat The One You Love" by Katie Love, "Cold Blooded" by The Bar Kays, "Do The Side Saddle" by Rufus Thomas, "Stay Away From That Monkey" by Jimmy McCracklin, "Them Hot Pants" by Lee Sain, "Devil In A Man" by Stu Gardner, "Circuits Overloaded" by Inez Foxx, "From Toys To Boys" by The Emotions, "Got It Together (parts 1 & 2)" by Rudy Robinson & The Hungry Five, and "Crosscut Saw" by Albert King.

Columbia, 2013. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
David Bowie's grabbing the cover of Heroes for this surprisingly great album – using the old cover art, then marking it over – in ways that definitely give a hint at the sound underneath! The style's darker and edgier than we've heard Bowie in years – kind of in "Joe The Lion" territory at times – given the fuzzy use of guitar, and raspy touches on the vocals and other instrumentation – almost as if the whole thing's got the same sort of back to basics approach that David found during his years in Berlin. Yet overall, there's more sweet moments too – some surprisingly warm tunes that, while not like contemporary pop hits, may well help remind the world that the Bowie star can still shine brightly in the right setting. Titles include "Dirty Boys", "The Next Day", "If You Can See Me", "Boss Of Me", "Dancing Out In Space", "Love Is Lost", and "Valentines Day". Deluxe CD version features three bonus tracks – "So She", "Plan", and "I'll Take You There". CD

Funky genius from the legendary Stax studios! During the 60s, Stax was well known for their work in the soul music field – turning out hit singles by the likes of Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, and others – but after 1968, when the label finished their deal with Atlantic, they really started getting down and dirty, and hitting on all burners in the funk department. This tasty set features 21 tracks from those exiting years –many of them only ever issued on singles, and a few of them by some of the label's more famous LP artists – but all of them with a nice Memphis funky groove! Titles include "Turn Your Damper Down" by Rufus Thomas, "Broadway Freeze" by Harvey Scales, "Life Is Funky" by Round Robin Monopoly, "The Dryer" by Roy Lee Johnson, "She's My Old Lady Too" by Lee Sain, "Slipped & Tripped" by The Sweet Inspirations, "Brothers & Sisters" by Kim Weston, "Movin Dancer" by Bobby Holley, "Eli's Pork Chop" by Little Sonny, "A Man Never Knows" by Chris & Shack, "Grab A Handful" by Art Jerry Miller, "I'll Kill A Brick (About My Man)" by Hot Sauce, "Watch The Dog That Brings The Bone" by Inez Foxx, "Sock Soul" by The Bar Kays, and "Getting Funky Round Here" by Black Nasty!

Titles include "Candy Man Blues", "Spike Driver Blues", "Big Leg Blues", "Ain't No Tellin", "Frankie", "Nobody's Dirty Business", and "Louis Collins". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ JBsFunky Good Time – The Anthology ... CD
Polydor, Early 70s. Used 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A killer 2CD set of funky grooves by one of the best backing bands ever! The JBs were James Brown's legendary combo during his monster funk years of the early 70s – and this well-selected compilation brings together 30 rare tracks from their best years! The set's got a great set of notes – and it stretches beyond work by the JBs alone to include cuts from other groupings of the band, like Maceo & The Macks, The Last Word, The First Family, and The New JBs. Titles include "Rockin Funky Watergate", "Keep On Bumpin Before You Give Out Of Gas", "Soul Power 74", "My Brother (parts 1 & 2)", "The Grunt (parts 1 & 2)", "Dirty Harri", "More Peas", "Watermelon Man", "Givin Up Food For Funk (parts 1 & 2)", "JB Shout", "Blessed Blackness", "Same Beat (parts 1, 2, & 3)", and "Gimme Some More (Very Live)". Nice nice nice – and with a fair number of non-LP tracks! CD

✨✧ Alex PudduGolden Age Of Danish Pornography ... LP
Schema (Italy), 2011. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Classic-styled funk from Alex Puddu – not only the greatest record we've heard from him so far, but a set that's definitely worthy of its "golden age" claim in the title! The music is all new, but it was done for a series of short Danish porno films from the 70s – and Puddu gets a sound that's right on the money for the vintage – loads of great short funky soundtrack modes that are perfect for the time – handled with tight rhythms, great basslines, and some wicked jazzy solos that really send the whole thing home. Puddu plays a range of instruments – including electric sitar – in a group that also features some great Fender Rhodes, organ, sax, and flute – and the tunes are really wonderful throughout – like finding a lost soundtrack from the 70s that never got issued as an album. Titles include "Kinky Hairdresser", "Miss Butterfly", "Madam Delight", "Sex Bar", "Lusty Nurses", "Black Triangle", "Naughty Girls At The Wild Party", "The Dirty Games Of Dr Love", and "Piano For Lovers".

✨✧ Ohio PlayersFire (red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Mercury/LMLR (France), 1975. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the biggest albums ever for Ohio Players – a set that took their earlier funk sound and targeted firmly at the mainstream with a lean, mean groove that a million other groups copied at the time! There's still plenty of the soul of the early years in the group's approach here – and sometimes, the mellower tracks show a wonderful talent for harmonies coming even more fully to the top. But the real appeal of the record has always been the bold, bassy grooves that hit strongly just as ensemble funk was exploding in the mainstream during the early years of disco – making plenty of space for the Players and their contemporaries to grab up new audiences who never would have touched a record like this five years before! There's plenty of grit in the grooves on the best numbers – a style that's maybe not as dirty as on Westbound, but still more than enough to make any real funk fan proud. Titles include "Fire", "Together", "Together/Feelings", "It's All Over", "Runnin' From the Devil", "Smoke", "What The Hell", and "I Want To Be Free". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jonny TrunkWrappers Delight ... Book
Fuel (UK), 2020. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Jonny Trunk's a man who's given us plenty of great music over the years – his fantastic productions on the Trunk Records label – but this time around, he's presenting us with something sweeter – hundreds of rare candy wrappers from the 20th Century, mixed with some soda cans and a few other sweet things too! There's over 500 images in the book, all full color – and the presentation is great – almost like an art book, as the wrappers aren't worn or dirty, but nearly pristine – and matched with notes and a bit of history. The book is overflowing with really cool images, including some unusual cards and inserts – and the focus here is probably most strong on the 60s and 70s, which is what we might expect from Jonny Trunk. Jarvis Cocker did the introduction, and the book is 237 pages, softcover, and full color throughout. Book

✨✧ VariousAnn Arbor Blues Festival 1969 – Vol 1 ... LP
Third Man, 1969. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic document of the first-ever Ann Arbor Blues Festival – the start of a great event that would blossom into other styles of music in the 70s, but which stood as a strong blues-based event in its initial year of 1969! In some ways, the three day series of concerts is a roots answer to Woodstock – which took place just a few weeks before – as the festival featured a great scope of blues talents, from the rootsier sort of artists who were recording for labels like Folkways or Arhoolie, to some of the sharper modern talents rising to the top on Chess or Delmark! The package alone is almost worth the price of admission – beautiful photographs of the event, detailed notes, and the first-ever release of this music – which has sat in the vaults for decades, finally to see the light of day. Titles on this first volume include "Dirty Mother For You" by Roosevelt Sykes, "So Glad You're Mine" by Arthur Big Boy Crudup, "Everybody Must Suffer/Stone Crazy" by Luther Allison & The Blue Nebulae, "Help Me" by Junior Wells, "I Wonder Why" by Jimmy Dawkins, "Too Much Alcohol" by JB Hutto & His Hawks, and "So Many Roads So Many Trains" by Otis Rush.

Cherry Red, Mid 70s. Very Good ... $9.99
Mid 70s live album by Rudy Ray Moore – and one of the few records of his that we've seen that isn't on Kent. There's a band backing him up, but they're sort of in the background, and you can't hear them that well because Rudy's thundering voice is booming out over tracks like "Hell Of A Blow Job", "Crack Me Some Nuts", "Grow By The Minute", and "Fast Black".

✨✧ NationalSad Songs For Dirty Lovers ... LP
Brassland/4AD, 2003. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A record that really has The National stepping forth with the kind of strong songwriting that have made them such favorites over the years – tunes that feel personal, but which are understated too – warm and witty enough to win over new listeners right away, but at a level that also makes you feel like you're kind of being let in on a secret, rather than discovering the next big thing. That understated quality has really kept this work strong over the years – as you'll hear on tracks that include "Trophy Wife", "Thirsty", "Murder Me Rachael", "It Never Happened", "90 Mile Water Wall", and "Patterns Of Fairytales".

✨✧ Skillet & Leroy2 Or 3 Times A Day – The Johnny Otis Show Live! ... LP
Laff, Early 70s. Very Good- ... $3.99
Bawdy soul comedy from the Skillet & Leroy, plus Lawanda – caught in the act as part of The Johnny Otis Show live in Hollywood! It's wild, raucous and side-splittingly funny– and actually not as all out dirty as some of bluer routines of the their peers, such Redd Foxx on his not-safe-for-TV live gigs, though the innuendo gets it across just fine! Speaking of Redd, Lawanda Page nearly steals the show here, just like she did on Sanford & Son – bickering with and battering Leroy throughout. Includes "Kiss Me", "Out Of My House", "Watch The Lips", "The Sucker And Politics", Monkey And The Go-Go", "Soapy Pants", "Whiskey Tale", "Smokin' Weed", "Texas Sheep", "John Did It", "The Mistake" and more.

VariousNuggets – Original Artyfacts FromThe First Psychedelic Era 1965 to 1968 (Sire pressing) ... LP
Sire, 1960s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $14.99
One of those few classic cases where a compilation of tracks was maybe even more influential than the original music itself – as this early 70s collection of 60s material turned out to shape and influence generations for decades to come! Guitar genius Lenny Kaye put the set together famously for Elektra Records in 1972 – as a reminder that, just a few years before, there were some amazing sounds that were not only brewing up in local indie scenes around the country, but also on the radio as well – even though most of those groups had been pushed into relative obscurity by the rise of soft rock, hard rock, and classic rock of the early 70s! The package is a return to the pre-prog years, with an especially strong ear for garage-tuned tracks that would go on to shape later punk, 80s indie, and lots more underground sounds in the future. Titles include "I Had Too Much To Dream (Last Night)" by Electric Prunes, "Dirty Water" by the Standells, "Respect" by Vagrants, "No Time Like The Right Time" by Blues Project, "Invitation To Cry" by Magicians, "You're Gonna Miss Me" by Thirteenth Floor Elevators, "Psychotic Reaction" by Count Five, "Baby Please Don't Go" by Amboy Dukes, "My World Fell Down" by Sagittarius, "Open My Eyes" by Nazz, "It's A Happening" by The Magic Mushrooms, "Lies" by The Knickerbockers, "Oh Yeah" by Shadows Of Knight, "Sit Down I Think I Love You" by The Mojo Men, "Just Like Romeo & Juliet" by Michael & The Messengers, "Hey Joe" by The Leaves, and "Farmer John" by The Premiers.

✨✧ Beastie BoysCheck Your Head ... CD
Grand Royal/Capitol, 1993. Used ... Out Of Stock
If Paul's Boutique was the Beasties heavily mind-blown Dust Brothers dusted psychedelic hip hop Sgt Peppers, then Check Your Head is their down and dirty back to basics raw funk run at something like Never Mind The Bollocks. Their first outing without the guidance of an outside producer, though the trio did bring in ringers like Money Mark and Mario Caldato Junior, this set's a ride into a whole other mindset, still fueled by sunny So Cal vibes and the Beasties own take on rhyme science. It's hard to imagine an album that would produce so many anthems for true heads and the Lollapalooza crowd alike, but this is it. Includes "Jimmy James", "Pass The Mic", "Gratitude", "Finger Lickin' Good", "So Whatcha Want", "Time For Livin'", "Something's Got To Give", "Groove Holmes" and "Professor Booty". CD

✨✧ VariousElvis Presley Connection Vol 2 – 33 Roots & Covers Of Elvis Presley ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great look at the Elvis Presley universe – not sounds by the King himself, but music that first inspired his creations – and other songs that have contemporary artists inspired by the records that Presley was releasing during the early years of his career! The collection is fantastic – a great sideline to the famous sounds of Elvis and Sun Records – and there's a really great range of material included throughout, all supported by very detailed notes that really show the thought and care that went into the selection of tracks. The whole thing is as vibrant and colorful as the image on the cover – and titles on this second volume include "Snoopin Around" by Joel Gray, "I Got Stung" by Eli Whitney, "A Big Hunk O Love" by Johnny Devlin & The Devils, "I Want You With Me" by Bobby Darlin, "Slicin Sand Twist" by Bryan Davies, "Working On The Building" by The Blackwood Brothers, "Surrender" by Rikki Henderson, "GI Blues" by Ronnie Knull & His Rock A Kings, "She's Not You" by Les Carle, "Good Luck Charm" by The Marvelettes, "They Remind Me Too Much Of You" by Don Robertson, "Just Tell Him Jane Said Hello" by Gerri Granger, "Girl Next Door Went A Walkin" by Thomas Wayne, "Dirty Dirty Feeling" by Danny Ezba, "Like A Baby" by Priscilla Bowman, and "Stuck On You" by Bobby Stevens. 33 tracks in all – with a great booklet!
