King Britt presents Sylk 130Re-Members Only ... CD
Ovum/Six Degrees, 2001. Used ... $0.99
The latest from this hip producer, and an album that's got a cool sound that's 2 parts underground soul, and 3 parts mid 80s R&B – complete with guest appearances by Alison Moyet, Martin Fry, Kathy Sledge, Alma Horton, Grover Washington Jr, and Trugoy of De La Soul. In a way, this is the kind of modern R&B album that we always looked for back in the 80s, but rarely found put together so well. King Britt's production is enough to hold together the mad vision of the set – and the melange of guest stars comes out sounding remarkably coherent in the end. Titles include "Cobbs Creek", "Skipping Stones", "One & Only", "Romeo's Fate", "Incident On A Couch", "All The Way Live", "'84 Fantastik", and "Beauty Of Machines". CD

King Bucknor & His Afrodisk Beat OrganisationKatakata (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Shanu Olu/Hot Casa (France), Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
A really tremendous record from the Lagos scene of the 70s – a set that's completely sharp from beginning to end, and which has the same sort of side-long jamming that you'd find on the best records by Fela Kuti at the time! King Bucknor's billed as "The Black Isaiah Of Africa" – and he's definitely got a strong spiritual core in his message – which is carried out in lyrics that begin to flow only after the Afrodisk Beat Organisation get things moving – really kicking up the groove with fast-riffing and very funky guitar over basslines that bubble along at a mighty quick pace – and which also get these completely great tenor solos from Dele Okonkwo, a player we'd like to know more. The set features two long tracks – "Soyoyo" and "Katakata" – both completely superb! LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, 1961. Near Mint- ... $16.99
Mel Torme may have written "The Christmas Song", but Nat King Cole owned it – thanks to a classic recording for Capitol that became one of the best-remembered Christmas chestnuts of the time! Nat's original 1961 recording is followed up here with an array of classic Holiday tunes – done in a similarly easy-going style that was every bit the best side of Nat's later years. Titles include "I Saw Three Ships", "O Holy Night", "The First Noel", "Away In A Manger", and "Silent Night". LP, Vinyl record album

Nat King ColeHittin The Ramp – The Early Years 1936 to 1943 (180 gram pressing – 10LP set) ... LP
Resonance, Late 30s/Early 40s. New Copy 10LP ... $199.99
A mindblowing look at the early years of Nat King Cole – a set that stretches in a mighty wide space before Nat's big fame at Capitol Records – and which also greatly expands our understanding of the material he recorded during his Decca years too! The music takes Nat back to a time long before most folks know his music – with roots in the bluesier side of the Chicago scene, moving through jazzier modes of the swing generation, to the tight trio work that helped Cole shape the sound of a generation – and all before he even got a chance to record more as a singer, and with bigger backings too! There's definitely some early Decca Records material from the 78rpm years, but there's also lots of alternate takes, small label material for Philo, Excelsior, and other labels – then a stunning amount of transcription recordings that were done for radio and broadcast – plus a few live tracks too. Not all the work here was recorded under Nat's name, either – as there's tracks in which Cole features strongly in other combos – although most tracks are trio numbers, and guitar great Oscar Moore is in the lineup right from the start. The 10LP set features over 180 tracks in all, remastered with really great sound – plus a 16 page booklet that's filled with notes, photos, and lots more musical history! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Nat King ColeNat King Cole Meets Lester Young ... LP
Crown, Mid 40s. Near Mint- ... $11.99
A great collection of bop sides from LA in the forties – tracks that feature a young Nat King Cole on piano, jamming with Lester Young on tenor and a bit of trumpet from Howard McGhee! Young's tone alone is more than worth the price of admission – beautifully firm and strong – blown in a way that rivals his best early performances for Verve, but perhaps even with a bit more grit and soul – an edge that makes these early recordings so important to his career. Dodo Marmarosoa plays piano on one track instead of Cole – and titles include "SM Blues", "Jammin With Lester", "I Can't Get Started", "Jumpin At Meaners", and "Indiana". LP, Vinyl record album

Nat King ColeWelcome To The Club ... LP
Capitol, 1959. Very Good+ ... $5.99
One of our favorite albums by Nat King Cole – done with a bit more depth and feeling than some of his other Capitol sets of the time – and some great jazzy backings, too! Arrangements are by Dave Cavanaugh, but there's almost a Basie-like quality to the group at times – never too hard-swinging, but definitely that slow-burning quality the Count could hit so well with a singer, especially on the horns! The group is awash with Basie-ites – and saxes are by Marshall Royal, Frank Foster, Billy Mitchell, and Frank Wess; trumpets include Joe Newman and Thad Jones; trombones feature Al Grey, Henry Coker, and Benny Powell; and rhythm features guitar from Freddie Greene, piano from Gerald Wiggins, and drums from Sonny Payne – definitely a swinging lineup. Titles include the great "Welcome To The Club" – plus "Anytime Anyday Anywhere", "The Late Late Show", "Wee Baby Blues", "Avalon", "She's Funny That Way", and "The Blues Don't Care".

Alan Freed with King Curtis & Sam "The Man" TaylorAlan Freed Rock & Roll Big Band – A Stompin' Good Time ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s. Used ... $7.99
A hip assortment of hard-wailing tunes all put together by New York DJ Alan Freed – part of his brief recording career for Coral Records, where he worked with some surprisingly hip artists! Most of the material here was originally issued under the names of Alan Freed Rock N Roll Big Band or The King's Henchmen – both groups that were really studio assemblages headed by Freed, but featuring some very heavy tenor work from King Curtis and Sam "The Man" Taylor – both of whom really bring a lot to the set! Other key players include Ernie Hayes on piano and Kenny Burrell on guitar – the latter of whom plays in a surprisingly rocking vein that's quite different than his Blue Note work. Arrangements are likely by Sammy Lowe, Leroy Kirkland, and/or Ernie Wilkins – and the material is a nice mix of swinging R&B instrumental styles from the 50s! CD features 24 tracks in all – including "Homework", "Two Good Guys", "Street With A Beat", "Cool Papa", "All Tore Up", "Tow Head", "Fandango Rock", "Gosah", "Shufflin", "Night Ride", "Flip Flap", and "Big N Bad".

King/Sundazed, 1962. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.99
A well-titled record, as Albert King here plays with the large sound and big tone that would make him one of the best up-and-coming bluesmen of the 60s – a key player in the already-electrified generation, and possibly the greatest example of the new confidence that was coming into the genre at the time! This early King Records session captures Albert at a great early point in his career – a bit free of some of the more standard modes that would come with his later fame – yet already a hell of a powerhouse on the scene. Titles include "Let's Have A Natural Ball", "Travelin To California", "Dyna Flow", "This Funny Feeling", "I've Made Nights By Myself", and "I Walked All Night Long". LP, Vinyl record album

Stax, 1967. Near Mint- ... $24.99
One of THE electric blues records of the 60s – a seminal set by Albert King that was probably blasted out of more college dorm rooms than southside juke joints, but which still more than deserves its due! The set was recorded by Stax with a nice raw sound – guitar very much upfront, but also set amidst arrangements that have a bit more soul than the average Chicago blues session from the same time. The set features a number of originals by Stax regulars like Booker T and David Porter – and titles include "The Hunter", "Born Under A Bad Sign", "Crosscut Saw", "Down Don't Bother Me", "Laundromat Blues", and "Personal Manager".

Albert KingLive Wire/Blues Power (Original Master Recording) ... CD
Stax/Mobile Fidelity, 1968. Used ... $32.99
Plenty of blues power here – a searing live set recorded by Albert King before a very enthusiastic crowd at the Fillmore in the late 60s! The album's filled with lots of King's sharp-edged guitar lines – searing with a bit more soul than your usual bluesman, possibly in part because the backing group's so tight! At times, there's almost a bit of funk in the mix – given that the rhythm section romps it up pretty strongly – and the record stands nicely apart from some of the blues cliches that were creeping into the mix at the time. Titles include the 10 minute workout "Blues Power" – plus "Watermelon Man", "Night Stomp", "Blues At Sunrise", "Please Love Me", and "Look Out". CD

BB King in London – not playing live, but working in the studio with a host of British musicians he'd inspired over the years! The lineup varies from track to track, giving a nice sort of variety to the album – and the overall feel is a bit like some of the Chess London sessions of the time – but maybe more blues overall! Features work by Peter Green on guitar, Steve Marriott on harmonica, Alexis Korner on acoustic guitar, Gary Wright on electric piano and Hammond, Ringo Starr on drums, and The Mystery Shadow on Hammond – and titles include "Ghetto Woman", "Wet Hayshark", "Part Time Love", "We Can't Agree", and "Blue Shadows".

ABC, 1970. Very Good Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
BB King hips up his groove a bit here – picking up some of the crossover soul and rock touches used by contemporaries over at Chess/Cadet, and expanding his sound with a range of guests that include Leon Russell, Joe Walsh, and Carole King! Despite the presence of these bigger names, the set's very much in BB's own spirit – mostly focused on his vocals and guitar work, and still mostly including original compositions. A few tunes get nice and funky on the rhythms, although still very much in a blues-based way – and Jimmie Haskell contributes a few larger arrangements from time to time. Titles include "King's Special", "Until I'm Dead & Cold", "You're Still My Woman", "Hummingbird", "Go Underground", and "Chains & Things". LP, Vinyl record album

BB King brings in a sweet dose of jazz to his work – just a touch of the funkier backings that some of his electric contemporaries were getting at the time – maybe not as hard-wailing as some of the Chess funky blues records, but definitely somewhere in that direction! Players on the date include Mel Brown and Jesse Davis on guitars, Bobby Bryant on trumpet, Red Holloway on tenor, Plas Johnson on baritone, Clifford Coulter and Victor Feldman on piano, and the great Earl Palmer on drums. Titles include "Help The Poor", "Can't You Hear Me Talking To You", "Midnight", "I Got Some Help I Don't Need", "I've Been Blue Too Long", "Lucille's Granny, and "Can't You Hear Me Talking To You".

BB KingLive & Well ... CD
BGO (UK), 1969. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
BB King not just live, but well-recorded in the studio too – in this classic ABC set that showcases both sides of his talents! Side one is the live set – and it's arguably better than any of the previous other concert recordings he did for the label – with a tighter, moodier feel that's almost more small club – with backing from a combo that features Charlie Boles on Hammond, Patrick Williams on trumpet, and Lee Gatling on tenor. Live titles include "Just A Little Love", "Sweet Little Angel", "Don't Answer The Door", and "Please Accept My Love". Side two is studio material, with some mighty sweet arrangements by Johnny Pate that almost bring a bit of funk into the mix at times – particularly on the drums which really groove things along! Herbe Lovelle handles the drum kit, and overall things are leaner than any previous Pate work with King – nice and raw, on cuts that include "I Want You So Bad", "Friends", "Get Off My Back Woman", and "Why I Sing The Blues".

BB King live at the Cook County Jail in Chicago – and given the amount of great live shows going on in the institution during the early 70s, the jail must have been one hell of a place to be incarcerated! This classic features BB King entertaining the prisoners with a wickedly sharp blues set – done, like most prison live shows, with an edge that's often missing from more conventional concerts – plenty gritty, both on the vocals and guitar, with a sound the Chicago audience must have loved! Titles include "How Blue Can You Get", "Worry Worry", "Sweet Sixteen", "The Thrill Is Gone", "Please Accept My Love", and "Every Day I Have The Blues". CD

One of the first records to feature BB King's famous guitar, Lucille, in the spotlight – an instrument he'd played for years, but which took on legendary status over the decades! The guitar's handled perfectly here by King – with a tone that still holds on to all the gritty edges of his early years, but which is also captured beautifully in the studio with top-shelf production – loud and clear, but never as commercial as on later records. The whole thing's wonderfully free of hoke – the material that made King a much-deserved star in the 60s – and the record features backing from Maxwell Davis on Hammond and Lloyd Glenn on piano. Titles include "Watch Yourself", "Lucille", "I Need Your Love", "Country Girl", and "You Move Me So". CD

The record announces its presence right from the very first note – that brilliant blend of effortless electric guitar solo work and completely charismatic vocals that made BB such a star, right from the get-go – and which maybe comes through even more clearly here than in some of his overproduced material from later decades! Many tracks have nicely jumping backings by the great Maxwell Davis – and titles include "Please Love Me", "Bad Luck", "3 O'Clock Blues", "Ten Long Years", "Sweet Little Angel", "You Upset Me Baby", and a classic early take on "Every Day I Have The Blues".

The pair were both working for ABC at the time – major label fame after years woodshedding in the indies – and hitting well-deserved fame for their huge talents – still as fresh here as they were a decade before, and unmarred by any studio sanitization in this great live set! The record does an especially good job of bringing together the artists verbally – letting Bobby and BB open up and rap a bit during the songs – yet still having plenty of space to go into their own thing musically, too. Titles include "It's My Own Fault", "I'll Take Care Of You", "I'm Sorry", "3 O'Clock Blues", "Goin Down Slow", and a great long Medley track. LP, Vinyl record album

Ben E KingI Had A Love ... LP
Atlantic, 1976. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A great one from Ben E King's "Supernatural" comeback years in the mid 70s – recorded at Sigma Sound with a really stellar approach on both the groovers and the mellow tunes! Ben's really letting his vocals open up on the set – going for that richness that was sometimes held back in the more uptown arrangements of the 60s, but which really flowers here in a fuller, richer, smooth soul mode. Arrangements are by Norman Harris, Bert De Coteaux, Ron Kersey, and Ron Baker – and the album's a great example of how the Sigma approach could take a great singer and make them even better! Titles include the Sam Dees tracks "I Betcha Didn't Know That", "Standing In The Wings Of Heartache", "No Danger Ahead", and "Tower Of Strength" – plus a great cover of Ashford & Simpson's "I Had A Love", and the cuts "Smooth Sailing", "We Got Love", and "Everybody Plays The Fool".

Ben E KingRise Of Ben E King – 1959 to 1963 ... CD
Atlantic/Contrast, Late 50s/Early 60s. Used ... $5.99
A set that does a great job of opening up the early years of this wonderful soul singer – a collection that not only features Ben E King's initial solo classics, but also his incredible lead work with The Drifters – plus a pair of rare duets with Atlantic Records' R&B powerhouse Lavern Baker! King in The Drifters is wonderful – a different voice than previous star Clyde McPhatter, and one who really humanized the group – even when they were hitting a newer groove for the 60s soul generation – and Ben continued that mature, sophisticated style in his own music too – tracks that are able to sound heartbreaking, but completely in charge of their emotions too. King's maybe least familiar on the two duets with Baker – "A Help Each Other Romance" and "How Often" – but those cuts are also a great demonstration of his range as well. Other titles include "Dance With Me", "I Count The Tears", "Oh My Love", "Amor", "Young Boy Blues", "First Taste Of Love", "Brace Yourself", "Too Bad", "Don't Drive Me Away", "Walking In The Footsteps Of A Fool", "Tell Daddy", and "I'm Standing By".

A fantastic bit of modern soul – both cuts are great! "If You Don't Want My Love" begins with this cool moogy keyboard part over the groove – then Bobby King comes in to warm the whole thing up with his nicely measured vocal approach – really flowing along with the catchy groove! "Lovers By Night" is even better – this midtempo modern number with a slight flute trill in the orchestrations – which gives the whole thing a slight edge that's maybe a bit blacksploitation theme in the backings! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Freddy KingLet's Hide Away & Dance Away With Freddy King ... CD
King, Early 60s. New Copy ... $3.99 9.99
Killer early material from Freddy King – a blues album, but one that's also got a strong resonance with instrumental soul and early funk! The record is "Strictly Instrumental" – as the cover says – and a nice batch of short bluesy groovers that feature Freddy's great guitar work! Freddie was way more than just a blues guitarist, as his style here was a definite precursor to funk – hard, heavy, and with the kinds of little tricks that would be taken up a lot by other players in the funky 45 era. Tracks are all nice, and titles include "San Ho Zay", "Side Tracked", "Wash Out", "In The Open", "Heads Up", "Just Pickin", and "Swooshy". CD

Leonard KingContinunationalizing ... CD
Uuquipleu, 2019. New Copy ... $9.99
An excellent ensemble from the contemporary Detroit scene – one whose work evokes the modes of the city's older groups on Tribe Records and Strata – with a vibe that's wonderfully spiritual and righteous! The driving force of the group is drummer Leonard King – who you might know from his work with Lyman Woodard and other older Motor City jazz and soul groups – but there's a very unified spirit from the younger horn section in the lineup, who are offset by lighter electric touches on guitar and keyboards. There's added percussion at the core – which further deepens the sound of the record – and King sings a bit on on the record, often with a style that's more powerful than any of his other records. The spirit of underground jazz is alive and well on this set – and titles include "Song For Christine", "Bananas & Mushroom Clouds", "Dedicacion", "Tinges", "Nonchalant", "Faces In Reflection", and "Resume Said Yes To The Money".

Peter KingMiliki Sound ... LP
Orbitone (UK), 1975. Very Good+ ... $24.99
A great groove from the legendary Peter King – an album served up in a wicked mix of jazz and roots – a perfect summation of his Miliki Sound of the 70s! The core rhythms are very focused – rooted in high life, but with a more skittish energy overall – and they're topped by Peter's own great work on tenor sax, flute, and piano – plus guest performances by Dudu Pukwana on alto and Eddie Tantan on trumpet! The mode shows King's unique trans-hemisphere journey in the 70s – his frequent time with other expatriates in England, and his sense of a place for a wider Afro groove on the European scene. Yet despite this all, the whole thing is served up without any easy cliches or attempts to go commercial – just a core sound that's mighty nice all the way through. Titles include "Iya La Jole", "Jo Jolo", "Boleya Koya", "Gyinmi Komo", and "Elelzy". LP, Vinyl record album

The title says it all – as the son of Atlantic Records soul legend Ben E King turns out a tribute to his late pop! The set's got songs that you'll know from Ben's classic 60s recordings – both on his own and with The Drifters – but the vibe here is different – more modern and contemporary, thanks to the talents of Philly producer Butch Ingram – who updates the vibe of the music to a sound that's maybe somewhere in the late 80s or early 90s – mellow, often with gently stepping rhythms, and a quality that works well with Sonofa's vocals, which are a bit deeper than his dad. Titles include "This Magic Moment", "There Goes My Baby", "Up On The Roof", "Stand By Me", "Save The Last Dance For Me", "I Count The Tears", and "Spanish Harlem". CD

The Storyville approach really brings out the best in Teddi's vocals – as the easy-going nature of the record has King sounding a bit more grown-up and adult than before – singing lines in a slightly sultry style, yet still with some of the bird-like notes heard on other albums. Taylor's piano adds a nice grounding to the record – and titles include "Old Folks", "Why Do You Suppose", "I'm In The Market For You", "You Hit The Spot", "Something To Live For", and "Like A Ship Without A Sail".

King CurtisInstant Groove/Get Ready ... CD
Atco/Wounded Bird, 1969/1970. New Copy ... $11.99 13.99
A pair of classics from one of the best saxophonists in soul music – back to back on a single CD! First up is an Instant Groove from King Curtis – and a record that's even more deeply soulful than some of his other Atlantic albums! The title cut's a killer – a hard-vamping number that pushed funk further into the mainstream back in the day – and lots of the rest of the album follows suit, by bringing in some of the rougher King Curtis edges that usually only showed up on b-sides of 45s – while other full albums usually focused on sweeter sounds. There's a few of those here too – but even those tracks have a looser, more personal feel than before – not as much "perfect" soul sax, and a bit more grit. Arrangements are by Arif Mardin and King Curtis – and Duane Allman plays guiter on some cuts! Titles include "The Weight", "Sing A Simple Song", "Instant Groove", "Hey Jude", "Games People Play", "La Jeanne", and "Foot Pattin". Get Ready is sly soul from the great King Curtis – one of his last albums ever, and one of his best as well! There's a hip sort of edge to the record that's different from the Curtis groove of the mid 60s – less standard soul instrumental covers, and a much more righteous feel overall – part of the vibe that King had been crafting for others in the late 60s Atlantic studios, and partly the funky undercurrents that would often only show up on some of his 45 releases for the label! The backing group here is really great – with rhythm work from Eddie Hinton on guitar, Barry Beckett on keyboards, David Hood on bass, and Roger Hawkins on drums – and solo moments from Cornell Dupree on lead guitar, and both Joe Newman and Ernie Royal on trumpets. King produced the record himself, and one cut features slightly different instrumentation – with organ by Jimmy Smith and piano by Richard Tee. Titles include "Floatin", "Sugar Foot", "Soulin", "Teasin", "Let It Be", "Someday We'll Be Together", "Something", and "Promenade". CD

Atco, 1971. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $19.99
The King Curtis combo in all of its glory – really grooving hard here in a set of instrumental performances recorded at the same time as Aretha Franklin's famous live date at the Fillmore West! King backed Aretha up on her own record from Fillmore, but this set features all the instrumental grooves laid down by Curtis and his group before Aretha took the stage – very tight and funky numbers that showcase King's work on alto and soprano sax, as well as organ from Billy Preston, guitar from Cornell Dupree, electric piano from Truman Thomas, and funky drums from Bernard Pretty Purdie! The Memphis Horns get into the action a bit – blasting out when the tunes require it – and as with the Franklin album, the recording style here is totally great – very "live", but still with the best focus of Atlantic studio soul! Titles include a smoking 7 minute version of King's funky classic "Memphis Soul Stew", plus long takes on "Changes", "I Stand Accused", and "Soul Serenade" – as well as shorter versions of "A Whole Lotta Love" and "Ode To Billy Joe"!

A great little live set from King Curtis – cut in his local turf of Harlem, with a very loose sort of feel and nice gritty groove – which lets both King and his combo get even freer and funkier than usual! There's an edge here you don't usually get on the studio work from Curtis – or at least the material you'd find on other 60s albums from the same stretch – which often just featured sax instrumental reworkings of pop hits. Instead, this cooker has King's horn working in a cool combo with keyboards from Paul Griffin and guitar from Cornell Dupree – really all coming together as a tight funk act, and more in the mode that you'd find on some of King's overlooked b-sides from his Atco singles. Titles include "Philly Dog", "Tough Talk", "Soul Theme", "Something On Your Mind", and "Pots & Pans". LP, Vinyl record album

Searing sax instrumentals from the great King Curtis – plus a lot more too – as this package not only brings together the King's records as a leader for Enjoy Records, but also digs up lots of performances as a sideman for that famous Harlem record label too! The grooves here are raw and ready, nice and tight, and done with a nitty gritty style that might have been funk if the cuts were recorded a few years later – but which definitely had a bit influence on countless soul instrumental modes to come, both in the rhythms and in King's wicked lead work on saxophone! The package features some of the best instrumental singles that Curtis cut for Enjoy Records, from his Soul Twist album and other singles – and CD2 also features material that Curtis cut for Enjoy as a soloist on records for other artists! CD1 features 18 tracks that include "Soul Twist", "Twisting Time", "The Monkey Shout", "Hot Potato", "Midnight Blue", "Wobble Twist", "What'd I Say (parts 1 & 2)", and "Big Dipper".

The sound here is equal parts R&B and instrumental soul – hardly the throwaway pop you might guess from the "twist" in the title, and instead a key transitional album in shaping the sound of the sax in soul during the 60s – blown to perfection, but never as over the top as some of the honkers and shouters of 50s sax sessions. Tracks are a good mix of King-penned originals and soulful covers – with highlights that include "Soul Twist", "I Know", "Sack O Woe", "Wobble Twist", "Twisting With the King", and "Big Dipper".

Aware/Tidal Waves, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 25.98
Mad funky soul from King Hannibal – a down and dirty singer from the Atlanta scene of the 70s! The notes on the back say "He's black, he's proud, he's arrogant – the combination is powerful" – and we've gotta say that we agree with that assessment, because King really grabs his groove from the very first note on the set! Backings are hard and funky – lots of fuzzy guitar work from Herman Hitson and Lee Moses – and the tunes come across with a gritty mode that sometimes rolls into mellower southern soul styles, but still never lose their edge. Bits of politics creep into the lyrics nicely, but never get in the way of the groove – and tracks include a long version of Hannibal's classic "Hymn No 5", plus "Party Life", "I Got That Will", "The Truth Shall Make You Free", "Wake Up", "Black Girl", and "It's What You Do".
