Average White Band & Ben E KingBenny & Us (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Atlantic/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $13.99
Ben E King joins the Average White Band for this sweet 70s set – a killer record that not only stands as one of King's best efforts of the decade, but one that also gives the group a great new frontman! Ben's not the only singer on the record, but his presence here can definitely be felt – deepening up the grooves nicely, and giving the already-great AWB sound an even more badass feel! Titles include the classic "Star In The Ghetto", a funky remake of "What Is Soul", an earlier hit for King – plus "Keepin It To Myself", "Imagine", "Someday We'll All Be Free", "Get It Up For Love", and "The Message". CD features bonus tracks – original single versions of "Star In The Ghetto" and "Get It Up For Love". CD

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

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 ... $149.99 199.99
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
(Hand-numbered limited edition pressing on 180 gram vinyl pressed at RTI!)

Nat King ColeInternational Nat King Cole ... CD
Capitol/Universal (UK), 1964. New Copy ... $5.99 11.99
A really great side of the legendary Nat King Cole – tracks recorded late in his years at Capitol Records, and which really further his international appeal! The tracks here are all non-English versions of songs that Nat had recorded previously for Capitol – set to arrangements by Ralph Carmichael, and delivered with all the cool and class that always made Cole such a standout talent in the postwar years – an ever-evolving artist who seems to slip into the different languages here as if they were his own! Cole had recorded famously before in Spanish, but there's a lot more going on here – including "Autumn Leaves", "Passing By", and "You'll See" in French; "I Don't Want To Be Hurt" and "Autumn Leaves" in Japanese; "Answer My My Love" in German"; and "LOVE" done in Spanish, French, German, Italian, French, and Japanese! Also includes the tunes "Tu Sei Cosi Amabile", "Tu Eres Tan Amable", and "Le Bonheur C'Est Quand On S'Aime". CD

Nat King ColeNat King Cole & The Quincy Jones Big Band – Live In Paris 19 Avril 1960 ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1960. New Copy ... $16.99 18.98
A dream of a collaboration – the great Nat King Cole in his prime, getting some mighty hip backings from the equally great Quincy Jones – who gives Nat a jazzy push that he wasn't always getting on his Capitol Records sessions of the time! The performance was recorded live in Paris on the same 1960 tour that has given us a few other rare Cole/Jones collaborations – but this one may well be the best of the bunch, as the fidelity is great – with an equal balance on Nat's wonderful vocal phrasing, and all the strongly soulful elements that Quincy brings to the band. Titles include "Tickle Toe", "Lester Leaps In", "Dance Ballerina Dance", "The Continental", "Darling Je Vous Aime Beaucoup", "Route 66", "It's Only A Paper Moon", "Joe Turner's Blues", "Welcome To The Club", "Blues In The Night", and "Thou Swell".

George Davidson & Mitchell KingUrantia Reference Series Vol 1 ... CD
Urantia Reference Series, 2019. New Copy Gatefold ... $6.99
Wonderfully freewheeling improvisations between a duo we've never heard before – saxophonist George Davidson and drummer Mitchell King – really pulling out some old school energy in this series of well-done free jazz duets! Davidson sometimes has a deeper current of soul in his horn, which almost evokes an earlier ESP version of avant jazz – and King has this way of building up formations on the drum kit, then setting them off in increasing intensity – which is often well-balanced by the grounded explorations of the tenor! Very nice work by a duo who follow the best sides of their inspirations – on titles that include "In Praise Of Fakirs", "Message To Eden Ango", "Aurora Vibration", "Mixed Elixer", "Madzub's Logic", and "Where Is Dhat".

King Fleming TrioStand By ... LP
Argo, 1962. Very Good ... $12.99
Incredible work from Chicago pianist King Fleming – a lost talent that had a key influence on more famous players in the scene, but who rarely got his due because he hardly left the Windy City! The set's got a really incredible feel – partly in the gentle groove of Ahmad Jamal, but also with one ear towards the more righteous rhythms that were coming into piano jazz during the 60s. A key element of the strength of the set is work in the trio by bassist Malachi Favors – working here years before his time with the Art Ensemble Of Chicago – and the set's also graced by some wonderful originals that show Fleming to be a heck of a great writer as well as musician! Titles include "Time Out", "Stand By", "On Green Dolphin Street", "Song Of Paradise", "Between The Toes", and "Lonely One". LP, Vinyl record album
(Teal label stereo Argo pressing with deep groove. Cover has light wear. Vinyl plays with a short click on the tracks "Junction City Blues" and "Song Of Paradise".)

Capitol (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $13.99 About April 28, 2021
Very groovy work from the Four King Cousins – a sweet quartet of lovely voices peeled off of the larger King Family ensemble, singing here in a spare and syncopated groove with lots of late 60s Capitol touches! Maestro Lex De Azevedo produced, arranged, and conducted – and the album's got a really unified sound that links together harmonies from Sunshine Pop and a bit of the loping styles that were showing up in mainstream easy at the time – a sublime blend of vocals and lightly snapping rhythms that's totally outta site! All tracks are covers, but done in really wonderful versions – and tunes include the great Roger Nichols track "I Fell", plus "Love So Fine", "God Only Knows", "California Nights", "This Girl's In Love With You", and "I Wanna Be Free".

Albert KingBorn Under A Bad Sign (original master recording – gold CD pressing) ... CD
Rhino/Mobile Fidelity, 1967. Used ... $19.99
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 ... $24.99
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

Chess/Vogue (France), 1950s/Early 60s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A split album of early recordings by Otis Rush and Albert King – both featured here in early Chicago sides done for Chess Records in the years before their bigger late 60s fame! The style here is mostly stripped down, but still pretty tight – not as rough-edged as some of their Chess contemporaries, and with a fair bit of electric guitar driving most tunes along with a nice little groove. Albert King titles include "Searchin For A Woman", "Bad Luck", "Won't Be Hangin Around", and "Merry Way" – and Otis Rush titles include "So Close", "I Can't Stop", "I'm Satisfied", "So Many Roads", and "All Your Love".

The enthusiasm at the venue shows that BB's Memphis-honed style is a perfect fit for the electrified Chicago sound of the 60s – and the recording really brings out some wonderful responses from the audience – making the record a blues equivalent of James Brown's famous Live At The Apollo set! The record features introductions by Chicago DJs Pervis Spann and E Rodney Jones – and tracks include "Every Day", "Please Love Me", "Worry Worry", "Woke Up This Morning", "Help The Poor", and "You Upset Me Baby".

The rare second album from Clydie King – recorded at a time when she was lending her backing vocals to artists like The Rolling Stones, Steely Dan, and Humble Pie – but a set that firmly puts Clydie in the lead! King's got an amazing style of singing – deep and raspy at one moment, with key southern soul roots – yet also totally tight and together, too – with a focus that really shines on the album's more upbeat tracks – groovers that almost have an east coast club vibe at times, quite similar to material that Clydie recorded with the group Brown Sugar! Titles include "Rushing To Meet You", "Loving You Is So Easy", "Steal Your Love Away", "Punish Me", "Our Love Is Special", and "Morning Sun". CD

One of the many great projects from drummer Leonard King – a larger ensemble, but one that's still got all the sharp energy of his smaller group work! King's definitely in the lead on drums, and getting help from a few percussionists too – singing at times, urging the group on in ways that aren't that different from some of Roy Porter's vocalizations back on his famous albums of the 70s! In other words, King is a drummer first and a singer second – but his way of putting over a tune really shows how all-in he is with his music – leading a group that also includes some strong work on trumpet and a mixture of reeds from an assortment of different players. The great Ron English is in the group on guitar – and titles include "Number Four", "Deep Blue", "The Story Of Neptune", "Atoll", "Pissed Off With A High Degree Of Elegance", "True Bassonification Suite", and "Closed For Remodeling Suite".

The tunes here all feature King singing with tight small combo backing in a very rhythmic mode, and with strong support from a male backing group – who offer up this great call/response energy to Elizabeth's lead – which only seems to drive the music even further forward with its power! The tracks were all recorded in Memphis in 1972 – and titles include "Can't Do Nothing", "I Found Him", "This Man", "I'll Fly Way", "I Heard The Voice", "Stretch Out", and "Down Here Waiting". CD

RCA/FTG, 1980. Used ... $5.99
A wonderful gem from Evelyn Champagne King – her third effort with the great producer T Life, who always helped bring out the most soulful elements in King's music! Life's got a way of grooving, but never going for modes that are too easily commercial – still lots of disco and club in the mix, but with more than enough space for Evelyn to really stretch out and be her own woman on the vocals, too! This mix comes out especially well on some of the more midtempo groovers – which have this flourish and polish that's really wonderful – way beyond some of the cliches of King's contemporaries, and with a personal quality that really comes through right away. Some of these cuts include "Your Kind Of Loving" and "Call On Me" – both real standouts on the record – and other numbers include "Let's Get Funky Tonight", "I Need Your Love", "Universal Girl", "Bedroom Eyes", and "Just A Little Bit Of Love". CD features bonus tracks – "Let's Get Funky Tonight (12" mix)", plus "I Love You", "Is It Good", "Sweet Delight", and "Long Time Waiting On You". CD

RCA/Soulmusic.com (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 8CD ... $44.99 65.98
A massive collection of music – eight full albums from Evelyn Champagne King, plus bonus tracks as well! King was a hell of a singer who came along at just the right time – as cool and classy enough to have sung jazz in decades before, but with a richness that also really fit the spirit of 70s soul – and was perfect for the new infusion of grooves that the music got during the disco generation! King could sing disco, but also hit a lot wider range too – which made for some really well-formed records during her years at RCA – all of which are collected here! Unlike some of her crossover contemporaries, Evelyn managed to grow with the years and stay strong as the 80s moved in – shifting styles a bit, but never losing her groove – and working here with production and arrangements from the likes of T Life, Kashif, Willie Lester, Morrie Brown, Andre Cymone, and Leon Sylvers – all of whom help shape the groove. The box features the full albums Smooth Talk, Music Box, Call On Me, I'm In Love, Get Loose, Face To Face, So Romantic, and A Long Time Coming – nearly all of which are presented with bonus tracks – all wrapped up in a box set, with a 40 page booklet of notes.

King/Sundazed, 1963. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.98
Bossa nova and blues? Turns out they're a surprisingly great combination – but not in a mode that's really the more mainstream conception of either – and instead more of that mix of Brazilian rhythms and soul you'd find in early 60s work by The Drifters! The record's a real standout in Freddie King's years at King – not just for the unusual rhythmic style, but also because he sings a fair bit – in this earnest, soulful mode that's a wonderful match for his gritty guitar solos throughout. Production is almost more in a New Orleans or New York indie soul mode than the usual King session of the time – and titles include "I'd Love To Make Love To You", "Bossa Nova Blues", "The Bossa Nova Watusi Twist", "You Walked In", "One Hundred Years", and "Walk Down That Aisle".

Zito blends light strings and warm jazz touches in this perfect pillowy style – couching King's voice without ever smothering it at all – as Morgana steps, dips, and soars with effortless ease – really flowing through the tunes with that breathy richness that no other singer could ever hope to match! King's cut many great records over the years, but this is one of her best – and titles include "All Blues", "Meditation", "I'll Follow You", "Easy Living", "Cuore Di Mama", "Bluesette", and "The Night Has A Thousand Eyes".

Morgana's vocals are tastefully grand – doing more with a hushed tone and an unrivaled vibrato than many more famous peers can do with a showier style!

Morgana's got this completely distinct approach to jazz singing – a mode that's short on attack, robust on decay, and which flows in a way that really illustrates the lessons the lady learned from instrumentation – a sense of flow and phrasing that makes her instantly recognizable, no matter what the setting. Arrangements by Torrie Zito – with the same hip, dark mode he used with Tony Bennett – and titles include "A Taste Of Honey", "Easy To Love", "Prelude To A Kiss", "Corcovado", "When The World Was Young/Young & Foolish", and "Lazy Afternoon".

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

Teddi KingNow In Vogue (plus Miss Teddi King & Round Midnight) (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Storyville/Muzak (Japan), 1955. New Copy 2CD ... $24.99
Three rare Storyville albums from singer Teddi King – all packaged up here in a cool Japanese paper sleeve set! First up is Now In Vogue – one of a number of great small group sessions done by singer Teddi King for the Storyville label – nicely relaxed, with backing from a septet that features Billy Taylor on piano, Bob Brookmeyer on trombone, Nick Travis on trumpet, and Gene Quill on alto! 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". Miss Teddi King is great early work from vocalist Teddi King – a set that's got a lot more dark corners and moody moments than some of her later work! The group here is nice and small – a quartet that features Ruby Braff on trumpet, Jimmy Jones on piano, Jo Jones on drums, and Milt Hinton on bass – all of whom accompany Teddi with a nicely sensitive sound – often augmenting her trilling vocals with some nicely blue tones of their own. The tracks are all familiar ones, but they're done in a mellow late nite feel that really gives them a new life of their own. Titles include "I Saw Stars", "New Orleans", "Love Is A Now & Then Thing", "It's The Talk of the Town", "I Guess I'll Have to Change My Plan", and "It's All In The Mind". Round Midnight features vocals as dark as they are lovely – a sublime early set from singer Teddi King, served up in a style that's nicely perched between two decades of jazz! There's a moody, intimate feel here that really takes us back to an earlier era – a bit in the way that Lee Wiley often does at the same period, with a sound that's almost timeless, yet never outdated. The only backings here are piano from Beryl Booker – and in a way, the record's almost a duet outing between Teddi and Beryl, with a wonderfully intimate feel overall. Tracks include "Round Midnight", "What's New", "I Concentrate On You", "Little Girl Blue", and "It Never Entered My Mind". CD

King CurtisDoing The Dixie Twist ... LP
Tru Sound/Prestige, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Quite a groovy early album from King Curtis – one that's got a strange little gimmick, but one that works wonderfully! The "dixie twist" theme means that King's taking older standards associated with the south, and playing them in a fast-crackling, highly rhythmic style that has plenty of "twist" elements! The groove is surprisingly great – really playful, and filled with great work on tenor, trombone, and guitar – all nicely grooving in a style that will really make you forget the origins of the tunes. Titles include "Sweet Georgia Brown", "A Shanty In Old Shantytown", "Royal Garden Blues", "Basin Street Blues", and "Up A Lazy River". LP, Vinyl record album

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 set that was issued by Warner Brothers in relation to the King Family TV program of the mid 60s – a surprisingly popular variety show that featured the core King Sisters quartet, plus a really expanded lineup that included their kids, husbands, and other family members joining in! Our favorite cuts here are those that have the leanness of the Sisters' earlier sides for Capitol – tighter harmonies than some of the kid cuts, and some great use of the singing steel guitar of Alvino Rey. Full family numbers are nice, but a bit clunkier – and there's also some solo numbers here too. Titles include "Line The Track", "My Favorite Things", "Irving Berlin Medley", "I Used To Love You", "The Square", "Amen", and "Love At Home". LP, Vinyl record album

King PleasureSource (Original Moody's Mood/Golden Days) ... LP
Prestige, Early 50s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $4.99
An important set that documents a nice patch of King's early vocalese jazz sides – pivotal vocal jazz recordings that were not only enormously popular with listeners around the country, but which also did a heck of a lot in the way of advancing the way that male singers handled lead vocals on jazz-based tunes! The first album's pulled from his Original Moody's Mood For Love set for Prestige, which was itself a compilation and features "I'm In The Mood For Love", "Red Top", "Jumpin With Symphony Sid", "I'm Gone", "Funk Junction", "You're Crying", "Don't Get Scared", "This Is Always', and "Exclamation Blues". The second LP's the hard to find Goldne Days set, a beautiful record, and still one of the greatest jazz vocal albums ever made. The great King Pleasure sings in a raspy vocalese style similar to Jon Hendricks or Eddie Jefferson, but with a sense of warmth and delivery that the two of them never seem to reach. The set list here features a stellar batch of tracks with lyrics by Pleasure, including "The New Symphony Sid", "No, Not Much", "Parker's Mood", and "Golden Days". There's some great accompaniment by LA hard bop players like Teddy Edwards, Gerald Wiggins, and Harold Land, and the whole set sparkles with imagination and warmth. 21 tracks in all.

A funky combo from funky drummer Leonard King – both a doctor and a professor, but a very down-to-earth guy when it comes to records like this! The group's a sextet, and work with saxes and guitar to give the music a vibe that's almost vintage R&B at some points, but more creative jazz at others – really showing that strong legacy that King has in the Michigan scene over the past few decades – which includes some famous work with organist Lyman Woodard! King sings a bit on the set, but most tracks are long with a very strong focus on the instrumentation – on titles that include "Soulsphere", "The Indecisive Dreamland Of I Don't Know Why", "Nightcap", "Next", "Queen Ann Nzinga", "Imperative Unit Rising", and "Crept Dema Wrongma".

The Soul Clan is an assemblage of Atlantic's biggest male singers at the time – Joe Tex, Ben E King, Don Covay, Arthur Conley, and Solomon Burke – and the team trade lines back and forth in this perhaps first-ever "supergroup" recording! The album features 2 tracks by the group: "Soul Meeting" is a party cut, with all the singers talking about how they have to go somewhere and break up their meeting. "That's How It Feels" is a mellower tune, sung together as a harmony track – with the voices coming together on the chorus passages, and breaking out beautifully on the other parts. Added to these 2 cuts are tracks by the individual members, 2 each to round out the album – making for 12 tracks in all! LP, Vinyl record album

A wealth of rare rockers from King Size Taylor – an overlooked figure on the British scene of the early 60s, and one who borrows some of the best influences from the American singers and guitarists of the decade before! Taylor's got a strong presence and a nicely bold voice – a style that sometimes echoes the Big Bopper, other times is maybe more in a Carl Perkins style – with just some occasional echoes of the new modes that were brewing up in and around Liverpool. In fact, some of his use of Perkins and Chuck Berry-influenced material echoes that of the young Beatles – who crossed paths with Taylor over in Hamburg. This set features 31 numbers in all – served up with the usual great sound and very detailed notes that we love in a Bear Family package – a long-overdue addition to the rock and roll history books! Titles include "I Can Tell", "Sad & Blue", "Saw My Baby With Another Guy", "Matchbox", "Money", "Sherry Baby", "All Around The World", "Dr Feelgood", "She Said Yeah", "Stupidity", and "Domino Twist".

All tracks are nice and long – and titles include "Gboromiro", "Oremi", "Ire", "Iro", "Ogunja", and "Ase". LP, Vinyl record album

Bert DeCoteaux adds a bit of larger backings at points, but usually very gently – in ways that are hardly noticeable at all – as BB's guitar is right out front, wailing with lots of raw energy.

An excellent collection of rare work from the legendary BB King – a selection of 25 tracks from the vaults of RPM and Kent Records, 23 of which appear here for the first time ever! Some cuts are alternates, some are different versions of other recordings – and all are pretty darn wonderful – that sharp-edged BB King sound right at the start, before the famous Memphis powerhouse was recording for bigger labels in a more commercial setting! Lots of these cuts have a jazzy backing alongside BB's sweet guitar and raspy vocals – a mode that's similar to the mix of bigger band and bluesy elements you'd get on early work from Bobby Blue Bland – that great Memphis mix of modes that always makes us love this stretch in King's career so much. Titles include unusual versions of "Sweet Little Angel", "Catfish Blues", "Early In The Morning", "I Wonder Why", "Goin Down Slow", "Whole Lotta Meat", "Loving You In Vain", "Long Nights", "The Woman I Love", "Soul Beat", "Don't You Want A Man Like Me", "Be Careful With A Fool", and "Whole Lot Of Lovin".

Atco/Wounded Bird, 1969/1970. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ King CurtisSoul Twist ... LP
Enjoy, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Raw early work from King Curtis – an album of searing sax instrumentals, recorded for the smaller Enjoy label in the years before King's more famous association with Atlantic! 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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Gold label pressing with deep groove – record is nice and clean, and cover is nice too, save for a small name on the back.)

✨✧ King PleasureMoody's Mood For Love ... LP
United Artists, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The rarest of three albums that King Pleasure ever recorded – and pretty darn hard to find, too. The set was recorded after King's earlier sides for the Prestige and HiFi jazz labels, but it's in a very similar style, with some wonderful vocalese-ing done in Pleasure's landmark style. He's really one of the greatest jazz singers of the 20th century, and it's unfortunate that apart from the big hit fame of "Moody's Mood For Love" (recorded here once again), King never got strong recognition as a richly talented singer. A number of cuts on here are re-recordings of earlier work – like "Don't Get Scared" and "Sometimes I'm Happy" – and other tracks include "It Might As Well Be Spring" and "Old Black Magic".

✨✧ King SunXL (special edition with bonus tracks) ... CD
Profile/Traffic, 1989. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Tough, righteous rap from King Sun – 1989's XL – a set that still looms large after all these years! King Sun dropped knowledge from a Five Percenter influence with a flow that's as smooth, solid and authoritive as any Bronx rapper of the day – and the production by Sun Born sounds great to this this day. This one was out of print for far too long! Includes "Hey Love", which uses the "Moments In Love" sample by Art Of Noise, and is standout produced by Cut Master DC. Also includes "Lethal Weapon", 'Ft Tape", "It's A Heat Up" and "Time To Go". This long-awaited Traffic remastered edition includes the earlier single cuts "Mythological Rapper" and "Christmas In The City" – both on CD for the first time. CD

✨✧ King TubbyKing Tubby On The Mix Vol 2 ... CD
Original Music, 1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A sweet collection of Jah Woosh productions, prime early 70s Tubby's and Channel One goodness, with both excellent vocal takes and deep dub versions in cluded, with more than a few tracks that have been difficult to get on CD for quite some time! The backing bands are the Revolutionaries, the High times Band and the Aggrovators, and Tubby keeps the spaciness in full effect, for a dozen tracks of prime reggae, whether it's deep roots, heavy dub or sweet Kingston soul you're after! Includes "The Human Race" by the Symbals, "Who's Fooling Who" by the Heptones, "Know Where Yu Going" by Junior Byles, "Reggae Collie" by Reggae George, "This Love" by Leroy Smart, "Know Yourself" by the Morwells, and "Human Dub", "Who's Dub", "I Know Dub", "Collie Dub" and "This Love Dub" by King Tubby's.

While most of the reissue compilations paying tribute to Tubby's work have focused on his great work with Striker Lee, this is the first to highlight the much sought after tracks released on the small Black & White label, produced by Carl Patterson. There's a couple of Dillinger DJ tracks and a few with some nice vocals, but the ones we're checking for are the dubs, with the inimitable Tubby touch laid on them: "Pslams of the Drums", "Sabotage", "Liberation Front" and "Watchman Dub".

✨✧ King Sunny AdeSynchro System/Aura ... CD
Mango/T-Bird (UK), 1983/1984. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A pair of groundbreaking records from King Sunny Ade – both of which represent a new wave of interest in African music after the initial burst of the Fela Kuti generation! First up is Synchro System – fantastic work from King Sunny Ade – one of his first truly global releases, and an album that marked a whole new sound in his music! Sunny had been issuing lots of his own records back home in Nigeria – but this set has the juju master working in London, with really fantastic production that pushes his sound in really great ways – echoey waves of basslines and percussion, subtle but powerful vocals, and percolating guitar that takes on a whole new sonic sensibility in the setting! There's a richness to the texture that's amazing – almost as if Brian Eno produced – and titles include "Synchro Feelings Ilako", "Mo Ti Mo", "Penkele", "Maajo", "Synchro System", "E Saiye Re", "Tolongo", "E Wele", and "Synchro Reprise". Next up is Aura – a crucial record in the early days of the global scene in the 80s – a set that lifts the music of King Sunny Ade from its roots in Nigeria, and mixes it up with some fresh elements that really open things up for a world's worth of ears! The approach isn't commercial – at least not in the modes of the later world music years – but there's occasional elements that echo the beat culture rising up in New York and London, mixed with the warmer sounds that were always at Sunny's music – especially that way of making the acoustic percussion and basslines come together in flowing waves of completely sublime sound! All tracks are nice and long – and titles include "Gboromiro", "Oremi", "Ire", "Iro", "Ogunja", and "Ase". CD

Rare unrelased recordings by the legendary Nat King Cole Trio! Forget all the soppy pop stuff you've heard a million times – this is the real deal, the kind of stuff that got Nat noticed in the first place, and the type of material that he was playing for LA audiences in the immediate postwar years. The trio features the great Oscar Moore on guitar, plus Johnny Miller on bass and Nat on piano and vocals. Tracks include "Everyone Is Saying Hello Again", "I Found A New Baby", "My Sugar Is So Refined", "I'm Through With Love", "Oh, But I Do", and "I You Can't Smile & Say Yes". CD

A split album of early recordings by Otis Rush and Albert King – both featured here in early Chicago sides done for Chess Records in the years before their bigger late 60s fame! The style here is mostly stripped down, but still pretty tight – not as rough-edged as some of their Chess contemporaries, and with a fair bit of electric guitar driving most tunes along with a nice little groove. Albert King titles include "Searchin For A Woman", "Bad Luck", "Won't Be Hangin Around", and "Merry Way" – and Otis Rush titles include "So Close", "I Can't Stop", "I'm Satisfied", "So Many Roads", and "All Your Love".

✨✧ Clydie KingRushing To Meet You ... CD
Tiger Lily/Everland (Austria), 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The rare second album from Clydie King – recorded at a time when she was lending her backing vocals to artists like The Rolling Stones, Steely Dan, and Humble Pie – but a set that firmly puts Clydie in the lead! King's got an amazing style of singing – deep and raspy at one moment, with key southern soul roots – yet also totally tight and together, too – with a focus that really shines on the album's more upbeat tracks – groovers that almost have an east coast club vibe at times, quite similar to material that Clydie recorded with the group Brown Sugar! Titles include "Rushing To Meet You", "Loving You Is So Easy", "Steal Your Love Away", "Punish Me", "Our Love Is Special", and "Morning Sun". CD
Also available Rushing To Meet You (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD 18.99
