James CarrBest Of James Carr ... CD
Goldwax/Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $7.99 14.98
A beautiful collection of work from the legendary James Carr – a singer that those in the know place at the same level as Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett, or any of the deep soul greats of the 60s! Like Otis, James recorded heavily on the Memphis scene at the time – not for Stax or Atlantic, but for the smaller Goldwax label – who really hit magic with the sounds you'll hear on this set – a perfect blend of the richness of James' voice with the kind of slow-burning soul sounds that the scene was really hitting during its golden years! The songwriters alone here are enough to sell the set to any fan of classic southern soul – as tunes include contributions from Chips Moman, Dan Penn, Quinton Claunch, William Bell, and Spooner Oldham – writers who maybe never had a better interpreter of their work than Carr – who knocks it out of the park here on tunes that include "Love Attack", "Dark End Of The Street", "Freedom Train", "Pouring Water On A Drowning Man", "You've Got My Mind Messed Up", "A Man Needs A Woman", "Let's Face Facts", "You Hurt So Good", "I Don't Want To Be Hurt Anymore", "I'm A Fool For You", "Your Love Made A U-Turn", and "Let It Happen".

James CarrComplete Goldwax Singles ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $9.99 18.99
Killer deep soul from James Carr – a landmark set that features 28 tracks pulled from his famous years at the Goldwax label! Carr's Goldwax recordings nearly died when they came out – hardly reaching the audience of contemporaries like Otis Redding or Wilson Pickett – but as years have progressed, these sides have become the treasures of soul collectors, and have thankfully hit the status of "classic" that they were due for! This set is one of the first times these tunes have been legitimately made available in a good package – and it's about time too, because the whole thing's excellent! Carr's voice is incredible, and the arrangements are great – with none of the hoke that you'd sometimes get in weaker acts of the time. Titles include "I'm A Fool For You", "A Losing Game", "Lovable Girl", "Love Attack", "She's Better Than You", "That's What I Want To Know", "You Don't Want Me", and "Lover's Competition". CD

Goldwax/Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $9.99 18.99
Sublime southern soul from one of the greats! James Carr is right up there with the best of the 60s – Otis Redding, Arthur Conley, Joe Tex, and others – but he never made it as big as them because of personal troubles and bad planning on the part of his label and management. Fortunately, his genius has been kept alive by record collectors everywhere – for whom this rare gem is a holy grail! The album features tunes that sum up the best of the south in the 60s – all sung by James with his unbelievably heartbreaking voice. Titles include "The Dark End Of The Street", "You've Got My Mind Messed Up", "A Woman Is A Man's Best Friend", "I'm A Fool For You", "Stronger Than Love", "More Love", and "Sowed Love & Reaped A Heartache". Plus, the CD features a huge amount of extra tracks – making for 24 titles in all – with rare singles and other numbers that include "Ring Of Fire", "Your Love Made A U Turn", "Let's Face Facts", "A Message To Young Lovers", "I Can't Turn You Loose", and "You Gotta Have Soul".

Goldwax/Kent (UK), 1966. New Copy ... $9.99 18.99
An incredible bit of southern soul – one of two classic albums cut by James Carr for the Goldwax! At the time of release, this album virtually died in the racks – but thanks to the work of countless music writers over the past few decades, Carr has finally achieved legendary status in the annals of soul music – and this album's one of the best examples of his genius! Every track is a deep soul masterpiece – and the album sparkles with production by Quinton Claunch and Rudolph Russell, and is filled with classic tracks like "The Dark End Of The Street", "You Got My Mind Messed Up", "She's Better Than You", "These Ain't Raindrops", and "Coming Back To Me Baby".

✨✧ Lee FieldsSentimental Fool ... CD
Daptone, 2022. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
The great thing about Lee Fields is that he just keeps on giving – giving us the sort of deep soul music that first caught our ears back when he was recording in near obscurity for a small southern label – and which has finally gotten the attention it deserves in recent decades! Lee's got the ability to sing at the level of an Otis Redding or James Carr, but without sounding like he's trying to copy the classics – and for good reason too, as Lee is the classic – maybe a bit younger than Redding and Carr, but not by much – and more than able to take southern soul strongly into the contemporary generation, with slow-burning genius on titles that include "Ordinary Lives", "Sentimental Fool", "The Door", "Forever", "Two Jobs", "Without A Heart", "Your Face Before My Eyes", and "Extraordinary Man".

Eddie HintonVery Extremely Dangerous ... CD
Capricorn/Reel Music, 1978. New Copy ... $8.99 16.99
A really great set of later southern soul from Eddie Hinton – recorded at Muscle Shoals with a nice 70s take on the classic 60s style of the genre – with powerful vocals from Hinton! The record's surprisingly rootsy for the time – and Eddie sings in a wonderful mode that has plenty of traces of Otis Redding and James Carr. The production has a modern touch, but never in a way that smooths out the real gritty soulfulness – and on these numbers, the album isn't out of step with some of the nice mid 70s work of Arthur Alexander or Paul Kelly. A genuine gem! Titles include "Get Off In It", "I Got The Feeling", "You Got Me Singing", "Yeah Man", Shout Bamalama", "Brand New Man", and "Shoot The Moon". CD

George Jackson & Dan GreerGeorge Jackson & Dan Greer At Goldwax ... CD
Goldwax/Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $9.99 18.99
An amazing soul duo from the Memphis scene of the 60s – George Jackson and Dan Greer, who artists who are perhaps best known as songwriters and producers – but who recorded some wonderful work together at the start of their careers! Only a handful of the Jackson/Greer singles were ever issued by the small Goldwax label – which makes this collection a huge discovery for longtime fans of their music, like us – since the CD features 17 never-issued titles from the Goldwax vaults, all of which easily match the few that saw release back in the 60s! Both artists are great vocalists – and get hip Memphis backings that are very much in the best Stax or Goldwax styles of the time – and there's a depth to this music that may well have gotten Jackson and Greer the same kind of attention as James Carr on his own legendary Goldwax work. A few titles have some wonderfully spare backings – almost just piano behind the heavenly vocals, which is quite unique for the time – and the set features 23 tracks in all – with titles that include "Love Attack", "It's So Nice", "A Road To Nowhere", "Fascination", "I See Sadness Ahead For Me", "I Don't Want To Be Hurt", "I'm Still In Love With You", "Will You Be Around", "To Me It's Storming", "Good Times", "Do The March", "Don't Wake Me Up", "That's Why I Love You", and "Nothing Can Touch My Love I Have For You".

An incredible bit of southern soul from deep soul singer Lou Johnson! This CD includes loads of rare early singles from Bigtop and Big Hill plus his masterpiece – Sweet Southern Soul – recorded at the Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals, at a time when the outfit was at the height of its powers with a sweet-burning style that matches (if not betters) the best by Otis Redding or James Carr from the same period. Each song is a treasure, handled by Lou as if it were his own, and transformed completely by the amazing setting of the recording. Titles include "Tears Tears Tears", "Don't Play That Song", "People In Love", "It's In The Wind", "Rock Me Baby", and "I Can't Change" – 24 tracks total. CD

Spencer WigginsGoldwax Years ... CD
Goldwax/Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $9.99 18.99
Incredible work from Spencer Wiggins – a late 60s Memphis singer who travelled in the same circles as James Carr, Percy Sledge, and Otis Redding, but who hardly ever got his due – despite talents that were clearly equal to his contemporaries! This beautifully-done set brings together 22 tracks that Wiggins recorded for Goldwax Records in the late 60s – a label that was also home to Carr's best work, and who does an equally great job with Spencer's deep-burning vocals on these sides. Many of the tracks on the set were written by the cream of the crop of southern soul writers at the time – George Jackson, Quinton Claunch, Isaac Hayes, and others – and backings are often spare and subtle, really letting Wiggins' vocals take center stage! CD features 20 tracks in all, plus some incredible notes – and titles include "The Kind Of Woman That's Got No Heart", "Old Friend", "Once In A While Is Better Than Never At All", "He's Too Old", "Soul City USA", "Walking Out On You", "Who's Been Warming My Oven", "I'll Be True To You", and "Anything You Do Is All Right".

VariousDave Godin's Deep Soul Treasures Vol 2 – Taken From The Vaults ... CD
Kent/Ace (UK), Late 60s. Used ... $8.99 18.99
Deep soul is special soul – a certain breed of soul music that features extremely emotive vocal performances, and the kind of gut-level delivery of lyrics you'd find in the best work by legends like Otis Redding or James Carr! Yet despite the fame of those big names, the style is maybe best served up by the legion of artists who worked in the underground – some of the lesser-remembered singers who stand here alongside Redding, in a killer second batch of material all hand-picked by Dave Godin – the man who first coined the "deep soul" term back in the day! The collection seems to be even greater than the first – maybe Dave's feeling even more confident than ever – and features a stunning 25 titles that include "How Much Can A Man Take?" by Big John Hamilton, "Losin Boy" by Eddie Giles, "I'll Run Your Hurt Away" by Ruby Johnson, "Make It Me" by The Premiers, "How Was I To Know You Cared" by Doris Duke, "A Love That Never Grows Cold" by Jimmy & Louise Tig, "Let Nothing Separate Us" by Arthur Conley, "If I Could See You One More Time" by Johnny Adams, and "Hiding In the Shadows" by Eddie & Ernie.

VariousFame Northern Soul ... CD
Fame/Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $12.99 18.99
Upbeat sounds from Muscle Shoals – music that's normally dubbed by the term of Northern Soul, but which was recorded in one of the best scenes in the American south! That confusion's easy to fix – as the "northern" in Northern Soul has always referred to the interest in a certain type of rhythm in the 60s UK scene up north – which means that the sounds can come from anywhere, especially a place that's as well-tuned to vintage soul styles as the legendary Fame studios! The tracks here were all recorded at Fame – handled by Rick Hall and his top-shelf lineup of studio musicians – and were issued on his own Fame label, and other imprints that include Atlantic, Bell, Cotillion, and a few others – appearing here alongside a number of tracks that weren't issued back in the day as well. The main thing to know is that the rhythms are upbeat and romping – and the singers are all pretty darn wonderful – as many are also known for famous deep soul recordings at fame. Titles include "A Stone Loser" by Ben & Spence, "I'm Qualified" by Otis Clay, "Love Is A Wonderful Thing" by Prince Phillip, "Ten Miles High" by David & The Giants, "Keep On Talkin" by James Barnett, "A World Of My Own" by Billy & Clyde, "It's Not Safe To Mess On Me" by George Jackson, "In The Heat Of Love" by Marjorie Ingram, "It Ain't What You Got" by Jimmy Hughes, "Slippin Around With You" by Art Freeman, "Your Love Lifted Me" by James Govan, and "Everytime" by Linda Carr.

VariousGoldwax Story Vol 2 ... CD
Goldwax/Kent (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $9.99 18.99
Incredible work from one of the greatest deep soul labels ever – the legendary Goldwax Records, a smaller company that languished in the shadows of Stax and Hi Records during their glory years! Like so many small labels in cities that were important to soul music, Goldwax seemed to have an amazing talent for picking up all the bits that Stax and Hi left behind – recording artists who were every bit as good as the bigger stars from Memphis, but who also seemed to benefit even more from the personal sound, and richer recording quality they got from the label. The most legendary figure to record for Goldwax was James Carr, and the work on this set follows very much in Carr's tradition – a deeply burning, extremely heartfelt approach to southern soul – one that even leaves some of the bigger names of the scene in the dust! The set features 24 tracks in all, including a number of unreleased tracks – and it's packaged with a great set of notes on this legendary imprint! Titles include "I Never Loved A Woman" by Spencer Wiggins, "Crying Baby Baby Baby" by Percy Milem, "Welcome Home Baby" by Barbara Perry, "Peace Of Mind" by The Ovations, "Country Style" by Dorothy Williams, "Good Times" by George & Greer, "Toddlin" by Gene Bowlegs Miller, "I Ain't Gonna Cheat On You No More" by Wee Willie Walker, "When You Look In The Mirror" by Eddie Jefferson, "The Side Wind" by The Lyrics, "Darling" by The Vel Tones, and "A Man Needs A Woman" by OB McClinton.

There's a total of 90 tracks in all on the set – and if ever you wanted a compilation that would give you the best of soul oldies radio, this is it! Titles include "My Guy" by Mary Wells, "Please Mr Postman" by The Marvelettes, "Sweet Soul Music" by Arthur Conley, "Soul Man" by Sam & Dave, "Soulful Strut" by Young Holt Unlimited, "Cowboys To Girls" by The Intruders, "We Got More Soul" by Dyke & The Blazers, "Just One Look" by Doris Troy, "The Monkey Time" by Major Lance, "Sunny" by Bobby Hebb, "Rescue Me" by Fontella Bass, "Rainy Night In Georgia" by Brook Benton, "Tell It Like It Is" by Aaron Neville, "Dark End Of The Street" by James Carr, "Groove Me" by King Floyd, "One Of A Kind Love Affair" by The Spinners, "I Want You Back" by Jackson 5, "Kiss & Say Goodbye" by The Manhattans, and lots lots more!

VariousSweet Inspiration – The Songs Of Dan Penn & Spooner Oldham ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $9.99 18.99
A treasure trove of wonderful tunes – all written by the legendary southern soul team of Dan Penn and Spooner Oldham! The pair rarely entered the spotlight themselves, but contributed countless compositions that helped forge the sound of southern soul in the 60s – classic tunes that made the music of Memphis and Muscle Shoals even more mighty than anyone might have expected – thanks to a depth of feeling, sensitivity of emotion, and a trademark undercurrent of sadness that really helped the music set a new level at the time! This collection is the first to really do justice to the full range of the Penn/Oldham catalog – a beautiful batch of soul singles from a variety of different 60s labels – laid out back to back, in a breathtaking tapestry of soulful music. Titles include "Feed The Flame" by Ted Taylor, "Take Me" by Solomon Burke, "I'm Your Puppet" by Dionne Warwick, "Out Of Left Field" by Percy Sledge, "Cry Like A Baby" by Arthur Alexander, "It Tears Me Up" by Jeanne Newman, "I Met Her In Church" by Tony Borders, "I Need Someone" by The Wallace Brothers, "In The Same Old Way" by Arthur Conley, "Let It Happen" by James Carr, "Are You Never Coming Home" by Sandy Posey, and "I Worship The Ground You Walk On" by Etta James.

Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $12.99 19.99
Right from the start, the brothers Gibb were recognized as some of the most striking songwriters of their generation – a fact that's sometimes lost, due to the trio's later disco fame in the spotlight – which obscures their huge impact as songwriters from the early years! This set finally does justice to that legacy – and not only includes the rock and pop covers you might expect, but also a fair bit of soul tracks too – showing a remarkable appeal that the Bee Gees had early on for a soul audience – an influence that began long before the days in which they helped bring disco to the mainstream. There's some really wonderful tunes here – maybe less hits overall than in the usual Ace Records "songwriter" series – and the set features 24 tracks that include "To Love Somebody" by James Carr, "I've Gotta Get A Message To You" by Percy Sledge, "I Can't See Nobody" by Nina Simone, "Give A Hand Take A Hand" by The Staple Singers, "World" by Sharon Tandy, "Massachusetts" by Tommy Roe, "I Started A Joke" by Pat Kelly, "Spicks & Specks" by The Status Quo, "And The Sun Will Shine" by Paul Jones, "He's A Thief" by April Byron, "Town Of Tuxley Toymaker (part 1)" by Jon, "Morning Of My Life" by John Holt, "First Of May" by Jose Feliciano, "Words" by Bettye Swann, and "New York Mining Disaster 1941" by Velvett Fogg.

A great lost legacy in soul music – a killer collection of work that was all put together by Bob Crewe in the New York studios of the mid 60s – a time when Crewe was maybe best known for his brilliant work with the Four Seasons, but still had time to work with a whole host of other acts as well! Like his famous proteges, Bob also had a really strong appreciation for soul music – and here, he turns his stunning ear for studio perfection to a whole host of different artists on tracks that were issued on a variety of different labels – the kind of special magic that made Crewe's presence known to those who were paying attention to producer credits on 45rpm singles back in the day! The selection of cuts is as wonderful as the artists who recorded them – presented with detailed notes and great sound that go way past any of the bootlegs that have explored this territory in previous years – with a whopping 24 tracks in all, titles that include "Long Time No See" by Tracey Dey, "Count On That" by Shirley Matthews & The Big Town Girls, "Time Marches On" by Lainie Hill, "Sayin Something" by Dey & Knight, "Sock It To Me Baby" by James Carr, "3 Minutes Heavy" by The Time Keepers, "Everything Under The Sun" by Walter Jackson, "Deep Dark Secret" by Dee Dee Sharp, "Whatever You Want" by Jerry Butler, "An Angel Cried" by Hal Miller & The Rays, "My Own Two Feet" by Kenny Lynch, "Hurt Yourself" by Frankie Valli, "Stranger In My Arms" by Lynne Randell, and "I'm Going Out" by Kiki Dee.

Goldwax/Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Some of the earliest work ever recorded by the mighty Memphis-based Goldwax Records – material that shows the roots of the label's famous deep soul style, and a wide variety of other modes as well! From the start, it's clear that the ears at Goldwax really knew what they were doing – as even the more pop-oriented recordings here have something very different – a care and quality that makes digging through the label's catalog on a single-by-single basis just as great as doing the same with work from Stax/Volt! As with that company, you can first hear Goldwax getting their start in a few different styles – some of which were issued on other labels at the time – then settling into a classic mode pretty quickly, that massive Memphis soul style that easily made Goldwax one of the most important southern soul imprints of the 60s. The package features a whopping 58 tracks in all, plus full notes too – both a and b-sides of early singles, with titles that include "Toddlin" by Gene Bowlegs Miller, "It's Wonderful To Be In Love" by The Ovations, "I Can't Make It" by James Carr, "Arabian Jerk" by The Merits, "I Can't Fight This Much Longer" by Eddie Bond, "That's How Strong My Love Is" by OV Wright, "Our Last Quarrel"by Bobby McDowell, "Will I Ever Be Free" by Jeb Stewart, "The Day The World Cried (parts 1 & 2)" by Oboe, "A Thousand Vows" by Bobby McDowell, "Spoonful" by The Playboy Five, "Rhythm Marie" by Phillip & The Faithfuls, "Country Style" by Dorothy Williams, "Have You Seen Jean" by Al Vance, "Lover's Crime" by Spencer Wiggins, and "My Motor Bike Balked" by The Lamars.

Legendary work from Goldwax Records – pulled from a stretch when the Memphis imprint was really going strong! By the time of these tracks, Goldwax was really coming into their own – picking up some of the best soul currents of the Memphis scene – and rivaling the Stax/Volt powerhouse in terms of quality – especially on the deep soul tracks that Goldwax seemed to do better than anyone else! This 2CD package is a wonderful overview of these golden years for the label – and it features every single single, both a and b-sides intact – presented with detailed notes on each release. Some of the work is the stuff of Memphis soul legend – mixed in with some more unusual, lesser-known bits from the scene – including a few rock, blues, and country numbers as well. 54 tracks in all – with titles that include "Anything You Do Is Alright" by Spencer Wiggins, "Don't You Believe Him" by Ivory Joe Hunter, "Cry Me A Hand Full" by The Terrys, "Say You Need It" by Barbara Perry, "Lovable Girl" by James Carr, "When You Look In The Mirror" by Eddie Jefferson, "What Time Ye Got" by Gene Bowlegs Miller, "Little Things" by Jeannie Newman, "Forgetting You" by James Carr, "Hello Daughter" by Leroy Daniel, "I Can't Forget You" by The Yo Yos, "Good Times" by George & Greer, "Walking Out On You" by Spencer Wiggins, "Qualifications" by The Ovations, "Liquid Mood" by Timmy Thomas, "Call On Me" by Percy Milem, "Me & My Imagination" by The Ovations, and "The Wife Of The Life Of The Party" by Kathy Davis.

A great lost legacy in soul music – a killer collection of work that was all put together by Bob Crewe in the New York studios of the mid 60s – a time when Crewe was maybe best known for his brilliant work with the Four Seasons, but still had time to work with a whole host of other acts as well! Like his famous proteges, Bob also had a really strong appreciation for soul music – and here, he turns his stunning ear for studio perfection to a whole host of different artists on tracks that were issued on a variety of different labels – the kind of special magic that made Crewe's presence known to those who were paying attention to producer credits on 45rpm singles back in the day! The selection of cuts is as wonderful as the artists who recorded them – presented with detailed notes and great sound that go way past any of the bootlegs that have explored this territory in previous years – with a whopping 24 tracks in all, titles that include "Long Time No See" by Tracey Dey, "Count On That" by Shirley Matthews & The Big Town Girls, "Time Marches On" by Lainie Hill, "Sayin Something" by Dey & Knight, "Sock It To Me Baby" by James Carr, "3 Minutes Heavy" by The Time Keepers, "Everything Under The Sun" by Walter Jackson, "Deep Dark Secret" by Dee Dee Sharp, "Whatever You Want" by Jerry Butler, "An Angel Cried" by Hal Miller & The Rays, "My Own Two Feet" by Kenny Lynch, "Hurt Yourself" by Frankie Valli, "Stranger In My Arms" by Lynne Randell, and "I'm Going Out" by Kiki Dee.

✨✧ VariousHall Of Fame 2 – More Rare & Unissued Gems From The Fame Vaults ... CD
Fame/Kent (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
We can't get enough of Fame Records – that legendary powerhouse of southern soul in the 60s and 70s – and fortunately, the vaults of the studios have finally been opened after all these decades – and we're really getting the full picture of all the genius that went down in Muscle Shoals! This tremendous little package is essential southern soul listening for both the collector and newcomer – a whopping 24 tracks that virtually define the sound of the genre at its height – handled perfectly by producer Rick Hall and his core combo of crack musicians – working way past cliche to create some tremendous music on the set! A few of the artists here are names you'll know from Fame hits, a few more are lesser-knowns from the scene at the time – and a few more are even completely unknown – singers who weren't listed on the master tapes or studio records, but who are issued here because their vocals are so great. Titles include "Long Ago" by Ben & Spence, "It Tears Me Up" by James Barnett, "Take Me Back" by George Jackson, "Unfortunately" by Jackie, "Have Pity On Me" by Billy Young, "Don't Let It Be Sad" by June Conquest, "Fool For A Woman" by Prince Phillip, "Take It All Off" by Clarence Carter, "Are You Teasing Me" by Linda Carr, "I Can't Stop" by Big Ben Atkins, "Get In A Hurry" by Joe Simon, and "Midnight Affair" by George Soule.

VariousJump Back – Imitations, Interpolations, & The Inspiration Of James Brown ... CD
Le Smoke Disque, 1970s. New Copy ... $6.99 15.98
A heavily funky and far reaching collection of tunes written by the Godfather – eclectic 60s & 70s material from all over the globe – each with a unique approach, but perfectly connected in their displays of JB's boundless funky spirit! The set includes a few tracks familiar to global deep funk diggers – but the majority of the tunes are quite fresh to our ears, and all of it's excellent, anyway. A tight Italian take on the sound from the Showman, brassy fury from the University Of Illinois Jazz Band, Latin funk from Rabbits & Carrots, a group harmonies approach from The Impalas, and much more!

VariousMaking Time – A Shel Talmy Production ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $9.99 18.98
A fantastic look at the studio genius of Shel Talmy – the man whose talents really helped The Kinks, Who, and Creation make a huge mark on the UK scene of the 60s! Yet apart from these famous productions, Shel also handled a heck of a lot of other great work too – as you'll hear on this long-overdue collection that brings together a stunning range of the work that set Talmy apart from the rest! Some of these cuts make great use of fuzz – not in a psychedelic way, but with a great tension between freedom and structure – and others have maybe deeper currents inspired by Shel's American roots, but given a much hipper spin on the British scene of the time! As usual with Ace, the presentation is wonderful – detailed notes on Talmy's career, plus song-by-song details on this wonderful array of tracks – 25 numbers that include "That's Why I Love You" by Goldie & The Gingerbreads, "Making Time" by The Creation, "Ageing Rover" by Roy Harper, "Lisa" by The Easybeats, "Night Comes Down" by The Mickey Finn, "Light Flight" by The Pentangle, "Stop & Watch The Children Play" by The Rokes, "Light Flight" by The Pentangle, "Semi-Detached Suburban Mr James" by Manfred Mann, "Bald Headed Woman" by The Sneekers, "Caroline" by The Fortunes, "I'm Coming Home" by The Nashville Teens, "Daddy Long Legs" by Lindsay Muir's Untamed, and "Jack O Diamonds" by Ben Carruthers & The Deep.

Sampled tracks from back in the day – a nice little collection that runs from 70s soul to early 80s boogie, with a few funky jazz cuts in between! As with other volumes, the work here has all gone on to form the building blocks of more famous tracks in recent years – as this work's been sampled by Snoop Dog, De La Soul, MC Solaar, Method Man, Fatboy Slim, Daft Punk, and others – sounds heard here in the full original tracks! There's a total of 17 titles in all – and cuts include "Love Is You" by Carol Williams, "IOU" by Freeez, "Din Daa Daa (US rmx)" by George Kranz, "Money" by Jimmy Spicer, "Heartbeat" by Taana Gardner, "More Spell On You" by Eddie Johns, "Apache" by Incredible Bongo Band, "The Rub" by George & Gwen McCrae, "Funky Mule" by Ike Turner, "I Got My Mind Made Up (7" mix)" by Instant Funk, "The Message" by Cymande, "Just An Illusion" by Imagination, "Take Me To The Mardi Gras" by Bob James, "All This Love I'm Givin" by Gwen McCrae, "And The Beat Goes On (single edit)" by The Whispers, "Dance With You" by Carrie Lucas, and "It's A New Day" by Skull Snaps.

✨✧ Sun Ra ArkestraSwirling ... CD
Strut (UK), 2020. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Sun Ra left the planet a few decades ago, but his Arkestra has been going strong – really carrying the torch that the great one kept burning – and stepping out here in their first studio album in 20 years! The record is really something special – that core Sun Ra spirit, but taken in righteous territory that shows just how much the group has evolved in his absence – still with alto saxophonist Marshall Allen as the leader, but a combination of classic Arkestra members and younger musicians who have really helped continue that legacy of mentorship and spiritual exploration that was always the greater mission of the ensemble. The production is great – never too commercial, and handled brilliantly to capture the spirit of the group at their most expressive – with a lineup that also features Knoel Scott on alto, James Stewart on tenor and flute, Michael Ray and Cecil Brooks on trumpets, Vincent Chancey on French horn, Farid Barron on piano, Dave Hotep on guitar, Akatunde and Elso Nascimento on percussion, and Tara Middleton on vocals and violin. Titles include "Sea Of Darkness/Darkness", "Swirling", "Seductive Fantasy", "Sunology", "Door Of The Cosmos/Shy", "Satellites Are Spinning/Lights On A Satellite", "Infinity/I'll Wait For You", and "Angels & Demons At Play".

✨✧ Quincy JonesWalking In Space (SHMCD pressing) ... CD
CTI/Universal (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pivotal album not just in the career of Quincy Jones, but in the development of the CTI Records sound as well – as this all-star effort is a perfect blend of all the hippest currents that were cooking up in the scene at the time! At one level, the record has Quincy taking back some of the sophisticated currents he was developing in soundtrack work of the 60s, but moving back to jazz – more groove than before, and more of a sense of space and timing – which is carried off by an excellent lineup that features plenty of electric piano from Bob James, plus work from Hubert Laws on flute, Eric Gale on guitar, Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, and Toots Thielemans on guitar and harmonica. There's also added soulful vocals at a few points too – more chorus than lyrics, at a level that hints at the jazz/soul crossovers that Quincy would do in the 70s – on a set of tracks that's completely sublime, with titles that include "Killer Joe", "Dead End", "Walking In Space", and "Love & Peace".

✨✧ Dave SchnitterSketch ... CD
Omix/Sunnyside, 2004. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A tight quartet set led by tenor Dave Schnitter – recorded in 2001, and finally seeing a very worthy release! Schnitter played with Art Blakey's revived Jazz Messengers in the 70s – and he carries a deep, deep love for that school of jazz on these numbers – which also recall 'Trane, Sonny Stitt and Dextor Gordon, and wouldn't sound out of place in your changer with 60s recordings by any of those cats! Schnitter composed most of the material, played by a group that includes James Zollar on trumpet, Thomas Bramerie on bass and Jimmy Madison on the kit. Tracks include "Dili Dili", "Sketch", "For All We Know", "Flirtation With Faust", "Sputnik", "You Don't Know What Love Is" and more. CD
