Brian CharetteJackpot ... CD
Cellar Live, 2022. New Copy ... $11.99 12.99
A definite jackpot for any fan of organ jazz – as contemporary Hammond hero Brian Charette delivers a host of new songs that pay tribute to the keyboard giants of the 60s soul jazz generation! The sound is as lean and clean as some older set by Jack McDuff or Don Patterson – and Charette's got the tenor work of Cory Weeds on hand to provide a nice match to his fluid work on the keys and bass pedal – while Ed Cherry creates all sort of cool and groovy colors on guitar, and Bill Stewart handles the drums! Titles include "Vague Reply", "Tight Connection", "Triple Threat", "Polka Dot Pinup", "Jackpot", "High Ball", and "Upstairs". CD

✨✧ DramaticsDramatic Jackpot ... LP
ABC, 1975. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
One of the Dramatics' best albums, and a real masterpiece of 70's group soul! The style here is a bit different than the group's previous records for Stax – maybe a bit tighter, with sweet arrangements – but these fantastic vocals that cut through everything and grab you to your core – a bit like the way The Dells could always sound amazing in the 70s, no matter what the setting! The approach really takes the group up to the next level – with fantastic vocals from Ron Banks and LJ Reynolds, and superbly sophisticated sounds from the Detroit Groovesville crew. Titles include "I Dig Your Music", "How Do You Feel", "Thousand Shades Of Blue", "I Cried All The Way Home", and "Good Things Don't Come Easy". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some edge wear, some clear tape on seams, name in pen on cover and labels.)

Ceyleib PeopleTanyet (colored vinyl pressing) (2022 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Jackpot, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
An incredible album of Eastern instrumentation and funky rock breaks – served up as one of the headiest studio sessions to come from the LA scene of the late 60s! The Ceylieb People work in the same territory as Devil's Anvil or The Orient Express – a blend of fuzzy psychedelia with trippier influences from India and other points east – a sound that has the group mixing heavy drums and jamming guitar with lots of sitar, tamboura, and rootsy percussion! Songs are all instrumentals, and played with a really mind-expanding sort of groove – jamming throughout, and very sensitive to little shifts in sound and rhythm. The core combo is augmented by woodwinds from Jim Horn, guitar from Ry Cooder, and keyboards from Mike Melvoin – and titles include "Leyshem", "Zendan", "Becal", "Ddom", "Dyl", "Ralin", "Tygstl", and "Menyatt Dyl Com".

Martin DennyAfro-Desia (orange vinyl pressing) ... LP
Liberty/Jackpot, Late 50s. New Copy (reissue)... $20.99 24.99
Weird and wonderful work from the great Martin Denny – and a record that adds in some great extra elements to his core exotica groove! The depth of the album is apparent on the very first tune – "Tsetse Fly", which features a buzzing variation on the sound of the insect in the title – then shows up even more strongly through the heavier rhythms and added vocals that appear on many of the album's other tracks. There's a style here that's almost Afro-Cuban at times – but which still glides across nicely with that heavenly Denny approach to melody and rhythm! Titles include "Tsetse Fly", "Ma'Chumba", "Simba", "Raftero", "Swamp Fire", and "Cubano Chant". LP, Vinyl record album

Fallen AngelsFallen Angels (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Roulette/Jackpot, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 27.99
The debut album of The Fallen Angels – one of those great late 60s psych groups who were signed up in a big mid-decade frenzy, got a chance to record some superb work, then were almost completely ignored by their record label! The group have a vibe that's right on the same cusp that the LA scene was hitting at the time – clearly band members with earlier garage, blues, and maybe even a bit of folk experience – coming together in headier territory with plenty of fuzz on the guitar, mixed with all sorts of other weird touches along the way – including sitar, vibes, celeste, kazoo, and even a bit of soft shoe! There's clearly a nice sense of wit in the proceedings – and even though mostly-pop Roulette Records didn't do a thing with the record, it's gone on to become a well-deserved underground treasure over the years. Titles include "Painted Bird", "Introspective Looking Glass", "Your Mother's Homesick Too", "You Have Changed", "No Way Out", "Room At The top", and "Your Friends Here In Dunderville".

Fallen AngelsIt's A Long Way Down (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Roulette/Jackpot, 1968. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $22.99 27.99
A really rare batch of garage psych from late 60s DC scene – served up on a record that barely got any circulation at the time! The oft-overlooked Fallen Angels were signed to Roulette in the late 60s, and the group only made a couple of albums – Roulette bailed when it became obvious that the group proved to be a bit challenging of a sell – but over the years their work has gone on to be the stuff of underground legend! Most of the tunes start with loose, ragged feel that eventually builds into a feedback frenzy – more controlled than groups those of groups like the Stooges and Velvet Underground – before finding the groove again and landing gently on their feet – a great approach that really shows just how tight and well-conceived these guys were overall. Titles include "Poor Old Man", "A Horn Playing On My Thin Wall", "Tell You A Story", "One Of The Few Ones Left", Didn't I", and "It's A Long Way Down". LP, Vinyl record album

Silver ApplesContact (blue, white & black swirl vinyl pressing) ... LP
Kapp/Jackpot, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99 23.99
The incredible second album from Silver Apples – even more mad, more trippy, and more space rock than the first! The tunes are all awash in fuzziness – mad guitars, distorted vocals, and rough electronics coming into play with a bit of banjo and some stark, stiff percussion that makes the whole thing have a bit of a groove at times! The sound is otherworldly and incredible – hugely influential upon a generation of 90s popsters, but even better than any of the imitations they've spawned over the years! Titles include "You & I", "Water", "Ruby", "I Have Known Love", and "Confusion". LP, Vinyl record album

West Coast Pop Art Experimental BandVol 3 – A Childs Guide To Good & Evil (mono – blue vinyl pressing) ... LP
Reprise/Jackpot, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 25.99
The continuing genius of the West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band – a group who are certainly as experimental as their name would imply, but who can also come across with some warmer Sunshine Pop touches too! And it's that which makes the group so wonderful – the blend of freak and sweet, of fuzz and fun – all given a special shape in the studio through the genius of producer Jimmy Bowen, whose work here with Bob Markley is superb – and very much open to the best freedoms that Warner was offering its creative talents at the time! The song titles are equally superb – and titles include "A Child's Guide To Good & Evil", "Ritual #1", "Anniversary of World War III", "Eighteen Is Over The Hill", "As Kind As Summer", and "Our Drummer Always Plays In the Nude".

West Coast Pop Art Experimental BandWest Coast Pop Art Experimental Band – Part One (mono – orange vinyl pressing) ... LP
Reprise/Jackpot, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 25.99
The initial uttering from the West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band – a group with a heady sound that definitely lives up to their name! There's less "pop art" going on here than just trippy psych – served up at a level that makes the group one of the best bigger label examples of the style at the time – and definitely a lot more edgey than some of their labelmates on Warner. Jimmy Bowen produced, but really keeps all the edges intact – and titles include the completely insane "Help I'm A Rock" (actually about a rock calling for help!) – plus "Shifting Sands", "1906", "Transparent Day", "Here's Where You Belong", and "If You Want This Love".

West Coast Pop Art Experimental BandWest Coast Pop Art Experimental Band – Volume 2 (mono – purple vinyl pressing) ... LP
Reprise/Jackpot, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 25.99
The amazing second album from this ultra-cool group – a set that's even weirder and wilder than their debut! The trio are maybe one of the few who really live up to the farthest expectations of the psych generation – as they're really open to let their minds fly in their choice of lyrics, instrumentation, and overall presentation of the record – which hardly seems the sort to yield any sort of singles at all, even though a few of the tunes are downright catchy! Instead, the whole thing's put forth as a dark statement on late 60s society – with a sound that's as heavy as the subject matter, and not afraid to really pus all the freak and fuzz as far as it can go! Quite surprising, even for the Reprise label – and tracks include "Queen Nymphet", "Tracy Had a Hard Day Sunday", "In the Arena", "Smell of Incense", "Suppose They Gave A War & No One Comes", "Overture Wcpaeb (part 2)", and "Carte Blanche" – which supposedly they were given in recording the album!

Wild TchoupitoulasWild Tchoupitoulas ... LP
Island/Jackpot, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99 22.99
A great slice of New Orleans soul from the 70s – a record that replicates the "Indian" culture in the Mardi Gras scene – and which is most notable for featuring work by The Meters as well! The groove here is kind of Meters-styled funk, mixed with some fuller New Orleans mode – as the core Wild Tchoupitoulas group get a nice kick at the core – which makes their lyrics and calls come off even better than in a live setting! The album also gets kickass production from Allen Toussaint and Marshall Sehorn – and is one of the crowning funk jewels in Toussaint's crown for the 70s. Tracks include "Brother John", "Indian Red", "Hey Hey", "Hey Mama", "Meet De Boys On The Battlefront", and a version of "Hey Pocky Way". LP, Vinyl record album

WipersOver The Edge (2LP colored vinyl pressing) (2022 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Jackpot, 1983. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $39.99
Searing greatness from Portland punk pioneer Greg Sage and his Wipers – the band's third album, and they're still pretty much at the top of their game here – showing a stronger songwriting hand than ever before, without dispensing with the vitally raw, timeless punky roots. This sounds as great 30+ years after it was recorded as it must have in the early 80s, and there's no doubt in our minds that some of the best underground rock of the later 80s, 90s and beyond would ever have materialized without the inspiration herein. Includes "Over The Edge", "Doom Town", "So Young", "Messenger", "Romeo", "Now Is The Time", "No One Wants An Alien", "No Generation Gap", "What Is" and "This Time". Includes a bonus side of outtakes, and more from the 1982 sessions! LP, Vinyl record album

Jackpot, 1985. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99 24.99
Vintage live material from Greg Sage and The Wipers – played with that special intensity that made them such a crucial link in the American underground scene of the 80s – even if they didn't always get their due until many years later! There's a sound here that's almost a bridge between earlier Cali punk and some of the work that was beginning to emerge on the Homestead Records scene – imbued with a focus and intensity that's helped it stay relevant over the years, while so many of the group's contemporaries were falling into dated politics or gimmicky modes that quickly got old. Titles include "Window Shop For Love", "D7", "Now Is The Time", "Youth Of America", "Moon Rider", "Think About It", "Potential Suicide", and "Pushing The Experience". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Dr JohnGris Gris (mono version – on colored vinyl) ... LP
Atco/Jackpot, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The great Dr John at his freaky deaky best – working here in a mindblowing mix of New Orleans roots and late 60s psych – all served up in some heady studio space and instrumental touches! The sound's unlike anything that ever went before – and is way better here than on some of John's later, straighter material – clearly the work of years of creative genius, as the Doctor, Mac Rebennack, draws on both his heritage from the Crescent City, and his years of work in the underground rock scene in LA! Harold Batiste handled the arrangements – and the record really paves the way for so many famous LA/New Orleans albums to come in the 70s – but never with results this mindblowingly trippy. The tracks are wild, funky, and messed-up New Orleans R&B filtered through a heavy dose of psychedelics – and titles include "Mama Roux", "Croker Courtbullion", "Gris Gris Gumbo Ya Ya", and the original version of "I Walk On Guilded Splinters". LP, Vinyl record album
(Remastered from the original 1968 mono mix, and pressed at RTI on colored vinyl!)

✨✧ Willie NelsonAnd Then I Wrote (opaque blue vinyl pressing) ... LP
Liberty/Jackpot, 1962. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Incredible early work from Willie Nelson – quite different from his outlaw material of the 70s, but equally compelling in its own sort of way! As you'd guess from the title and cover, the set came out at a time when Willie was a real up-and-coming songwriting in country music – responsible for hits for artists like Faron Young, Patsy Cline, and others – and finally given the chance to start as a singer on his own. Willie's style is as amazing as his songs – very different than the mainstream, and often inflected with plenty of jazz – which, for some odd reason, as wonderful as it sounds, is what also kept Nelson away from stardom for most of the 60s. Yet don't let that put you off at all, as the presentation of the material is sublime – completely personal, almost heartbreaking, and still with all those charms that most of the rest of the world didn't discover with Willie for another decade or so. Titles include "Funny How Time Slips Away", "Crazy", "Mr Record Man", "One Step Beyond", "Wake Me When It's Over", "The Part Where I Cry", "Hello Walls", and "Darkness On The Face Of The Earth".

Jackpot, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Insane grooves from arranger Mustafa Ozkent – an artist who was to Turkey what Lalo Schifrin was to the US in the 70s! Like Lalo, Mustafa had a great ear for mixing funkier rhythms and fuller orchestrations – often with odd instrumental twists and turns that bubble over with a fair bit of electricity over heavy percussion – kind of in an Incredible Bongo Band way, but with some moogier touches overall! The record's an instrumental masterpiece through and through – filled with enough heavy breaks to satisfy even the pickiest crate-digger, but also the more complicated arrangements to appeal to fans of funky 70s soundtracks! Titles include "Uskudar", "Burcak", "Dolana", "Carsamba", "Lorke", "Ayas", "Emmioglu", and "Karadir". LP, Vinyl record album

The second album in Denny's legendary Exotica trilogy – a set of records that provided the extreme definition of the small sub-genre that today has become the stuff of legend! Denny's still working here in his classic format – a small group with heavy piano lines, playful percussion, and some birdcalls sung by the members of the group! The set's a mix of strange songs from strange sources, all given the sublime Denny twist – and titles include "Singing Bamboos", "Escales", "August Bells", "Ebb Tide", "Rush Hour In Hong Kong", and "Soshu Night Serenade".

✨✧ Flamin GrooviesShake Some Action (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Sire/Jackpot, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A great move in a fresh direction for the Flaming Groovies – a set that has the group working with producer Dave Edmunds, and hitting this sweet power pop sort of sound! The Groovies still have all the tight energy of before – but they also seem to be paying tribute to an older vintage of British material – as evidenced by their 60s look on the cover, and the album's back cover parody of a stance by The Beatles! The short tracks are plenty tuneful, and Edmunds has a way of compressing the fuzz down tightly, but never in a way that makes things sound slick or commercial. Vocal chorus bits are especially great – surprisingly catchy, almost in a Brit Invasion way – and titles include "Shake Some Action", "You Tore Me Down", "I Saw Her", "Teenage Confidential", "I Can't Hide", "She Said Yeah", and "Sometimes".

Argo/Chess/Jackpot, 1960. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
An amazing step forward for the young Etta James – a singer who was delivering a raw, shouting form of R&B just a few years before – but who here ascends into soul music heaven with her famous work on the album! The title cut is the stuff of legend – played and played, again and again over the years – but the whole record's wonderful, and handled with this new level of soul sophistication by arranger Riley Hampton – the great Chicago talent who'd reach similar heights in his charts for singers that include Lorez Alexandria and Walter Jackson. Hampton's dark use of strings brings out a whole new side of James' brilliance – a quality that raised Etta James up out of the R&B ghetto, and forever put her into the legions of legendary 60s soul stars! Titles include the perennial classic "At Last", plus "All I Could Do Was Cry", "Tough Mary", "Sunday Kind Of Love", "Anything To Say You're Mine", and "Trust In Me". Includes 4 bonus tracks – "My Heart Cries", "Spoonful", "It's A Crying Shame", and "If I Can't Have You". LP, Vinyl record album

The set is a non-stop jam, recorded live at the New Era Club in Nashville before a small and screaming crowd – a perfect performance all the way through, one that showcases Etta as she rarely sounded on vinyl during the 1960s. The whole album runs away like a train on fire, and it's filled with incredibly lively readings of tracks like "Something's Got A Hold On Me", "Baby What You Want Me To Do", "Money", "Seven Day Fool", and "Woke Up This Morning" – all taken at versions longer than the usual under-3 minute single takes! Also includes 3 bonus tracks not on the original LP releases: "Ain't That Lovin' You Baby", "All I Could Do Is Cry" and "I Just Want To Make Love To You". LP, Vinyl record album

A great mid-period Wipers album for Restless that was for quite a few years relegated to a figurative land of the lost – finally developing a well-earned reputation as one of their most consistently strong beginning-to-end efforts just as it was becoming pretty hard to find many years later! If it didn't make them too many new fans upon arrival, or try too hard to be as raw and feral as the first couple records, but there's a focused intensity here that was sorely lacking in most post punk modern rock at the time. Happy to see this get some belated love! Includes "Just A Dream Away", "Way Of Love", "Let Me Know", "Fair Weather Friends", "Land Of The Lost", "Nothing Left To Lose", "The Search", "Different Ways" and "Just Say". LP, Vinyl record album
