Mango, 1982. Near Mint- ... $14.99

The second domestically released album from King Sunny Ade and His African Beats, with the wonderful Ju Ju sound ringing throughout every piece, from the up tempo numbers to the more mellow grooves. Interlocking, chirping guitar parts are layered over nicely percolating rhythms, 9 tracks in all: "Synchro Feelings – Hako", "Mo Ti Mo", "Penkele", "Maajo", "Synchro System", "E Saiye Re", "Tolongo", "E Wele" and "Synchro Reprise".

King Britt presents Sylk 130Re-Members Only ... CD
Ovum/Six Degrees, 2001. Used ... $1.99
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

Nat King ColeStardust – The Rare Television Performances ... CD
Real Gone, 1957/1963. Used 2 CDs ... $15.99
Excellent work from Nat King Cole – a set of rare television performances that offer up a much greater side of his charms than some of his studio records for Capitol! The fidelity on most tracks is pretty great – and many numbers feature Nat talking a bit as he introduces the songs, with that easygoing approach that made him as charming a talent on the screen as he was on the radio. The bulk of the tracks are from Nat's short-lived show that ran in 1957 – and the rest are from the 1963 Australian Mobil Limb TV Show – an unusual special. Nelson Riddle handles most of the arrangements – and the 2CD set features 35 titles that include "April Love", "Passing By", "C'Est Si Bon", "Sweet Lorraine", "Button Up Your Overcoat", "Love Is Sweeping The Country", "It's All In the Game", "My Personal Possession", "I Love A Piano", "When I Fall In Love", and "I'm Gonna Sit Right Down & Wright Myself A Letter".

Alan Freed with King Curtis & Sam "The Man" TaylorAlan Freed Rock & Roll Big Band – A Stompin' Good Time ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
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".

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. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
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 ... LP
Stax, 1968. Very Good ... $14.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

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".

BB KingBlues On Top Of Blues ... LP
Bluesway/ABC, 1967. Near Mint- ... $24.99
There's some bigger arrangements here than you'd usually get on a BB King album of the 60s – but they're used in a really great way that makes the album one of our favorites by King from his years at ABC! Johnny Pate arranged and produced, and he gives the whole thing a Chicago soul punch that's mighty nice – a mix of blues and soul that's not unlike some of the best Bobby Blue Bland work at Duke a few years before – and a blend that's really a lot like some of the best indie soul coming out of Chicago's west side in the late 60s too. The album's a killer all the way through, and it's great to hear BB in such a setting – on cuts that include "Dance With Me", "Heartbreaker", "I'm Not Wanted Anymore", "Having My Say", "That's Wrong Mama", "Now That You've Lost Me", "Until I Found You", and "Worried Dream".

The definitely got the title right here – as BB King is plenty great, and already a powerhouse in these early years of his career! King sprung forth from the Memphis scene almost fully-formed – and in addition to his famous guitar work, he was also a hell of a singer who could bring a new sort of soulful presence to blues music – able to croon with the charm of a jazz singer in the right moments, join with a doo wop group at others, yet come on with the power of a bluesman whenever he stepped in front of the mic! This great album has BB in all these modes – recorded with brilliantly bold sound – and titles include "I Had A Woman", "Sweet Sixteen", "Someday Baby", "I'm Gonna Quit My Baby", and "I Was Blind".

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".

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".

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". LP, Vinyl record album

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".

Atco, 1962. Very Good- ... $19.99
A stellar record from Ben E King – and one of a few early 60s gems that really have him leaving a longstanding mark on soul music! There's a balance here that's unbelievable – a quality that's emotive right from the start, yet also perfectly put together too – with Ben's tremendous vocals backed by some tight Atlantic backings – in a style that's virtually the blueprint for lots more uptown soul singers to come in the 60s. The song choice is impeccable too – numbers from Doc Pomus, Mort Shuman, and Phil Spector which perfectly straddle the lines of soul music at the time – tunes that include classics like "Here Comes The Night", "Don't Play That Song", "Young Boy Blues", and "Stand By Me" – plus lesser-known gems like "Brace Yourself", "I Promise Love", "Yes", "First Taste Of Love", and "Show Me The Way".

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

✨✧ Evelyn Champagne KingFace To Face (UK pressing with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/Big Break (UK), 1983. Used ... $8.99
Evelyn Champagne King will always be most popularly remembered for her massive disco pop crossover hits of the late 70s, but she progressed really nicely throughout the 80s, keeping up with the evolving dancefloor soul sounds of the times – and Face To Face is a lean, clubby electro soul and funk flavored set with catchy hooks and sweet vocals by Evelyn! The production duties are split almost evenly between the team of Leon Sylvers, Foster Sylvers & Joey Gallo and Andre Cymone – both of which embrace synth and programming, with Cymone's coming off a bit clubbier – but all of it nicely frames Evelyn's lovely vocals. Includes "Action", "Face To Face", "Shake Down", "Telll Me Something Good", "Don't It Feel Good", "Makin' Me So Proud", "Givin' You My Love (What Cha Gonna Do With It)", "Teenager" and "Let's Get Crazy". This UK pressing has 6 bonus tracks: "Shake Down (12" M&M dub, single mix, 12" M&M dance remix)", "Teenager (12" remix, single mix)", and "Action (single mix)". CD

One of the real standouts in Evelyn King's career – a sharply focused album that's filled with catchy 80s styled tunes – and which benefits from some great help from a young Kashif! Lots of the tracks have that great flair for a catchy hook that mark's Evelyn's best work – an approach that's never too slick or too forced, and which has a comfortable way of sliding into a tune. Titles include "I'm In Love", "What Are You Waiting For", "If You Want My Lovin", "I Can't Take It", "The Best Is Yet To Come", and "The Other Side Of Love". This Big Break UK remastered edition has 5 bonus tracks: "I'm In Love", "Don't Hide Our Love" and "Spirit Of The Dancer" (all single versions), "If You Want My Lovin (UK Single Version)" and "I'm In Love (12" Dance Mix)".

King/Sundazed, 1962. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.99
Hardly the surf album you might expect from the title – although the set is a killer batch of guitar instrumentals – with more than enough power to blow any west coast groups right off the beach! At this early point in his career, Freddie King is way more than just a blues guitarist, and 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. The recording quality is great, and really brings out the deeper tones in King's instrument – creating a great link between the earlier T Bone Walker generation, and lots of heavy guitarists to come. Tracks are all nice, and titles include "San Ho Zay", "Side Tracked", "Wash Out", "In The Open", "Heads Up", "Just Pickin", and "Swooshy". LP, Vinyl record album

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".

Uuquipleu, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
Very cool work from Leonard King & The Soul Messengers – a Detroit combo who really kick things up here with some great work from the clubs and a few rare studio recordings as well! King's a drummer, and gives the group a mighty solid sound from the start – and the whole group are equally comfortable in a soul instrumental mode as they are when letting loose with jazzier solos – a bit like the Jazz Crusaders on the LA scene of the mid 60s, but even groovier overall! Instrumentation shifts a bit throughout – depending on the lineups – and includes alto from Gregory King, cornet from Atiba King, trumpet from Jimmy Nash, and organ, electric harpsichord, and piano from George Roundtree. The range of material varies in a really great way – showing not just an evolution of King and his combo, but also the changing tastes of the Detroit scene at the end of the 60s – and there's also a few soul vocal numbers mixed in with the jazz instrumentals. Titles include "Delen 1967", "Voice Your Choice", "The Barracuda", "I've Been Saved", "Lily The Fox", "Cold Sweat", "Psychedelic Pi", "Bumpy's Lament", "Hang Up", "Spinning Around/It's Too Late", and a "Jackson Five Medley".

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.

King CrimsonIn The Court Of The Crimson King ... LP
Atlantic, 1969. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
An album so heavy, it blew plenty of minds when first released at the end of the 60s! This set's the first-ever utterance from the King Crimson empire – the initial outing of the group, which featured Greg Lake on vocals, and lots of airy, darkly atmospheric guitar from the legendary Robert Fripp! The song structure is quite unusual – and the overall feel is less academically tangled than some of the later records – a feature that makes this album much more sought out by mainstream rockers looking for an intro to the group than some of the later sets. Yet having said that, there's also a pretty amazing approach here – somewhat obtuse, and definitely not looking for any radio edit hits – more just magical musings from a very unique ensemble. Peter Sinfield contributed the lyrics, which are sung by Lake – and Michael Giles handles drums and percussion, while Ian MacDonald plays flute, sax, keyboards, and more. Titles include "Moonchild", "21st Century Schizoid Man", "I Talk To The Wind", "Epitaph", and "Court Of The Crimson King". LP, Vinyl record album

Fripp himself handles many guitars and devices – alongside drums from Bill Bruford, viola and violin from David Cross, percussion from Jamie Muir, and superb bass and vocals from John Wetton – who really gives the group a focus and soul that balances out he geekier technical moments.

✨✧ King CurtisInstant Groove/Get Ready ... CD
Atco/Wounded Bird, 1969/1970. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
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

Prestige, Early 60s. Very Good- ... $19.99
Rare early King Curtis jazz session – cut in the years before he settled down to his tight short soul instrumental recordings for Atlantic. The record is very much in the Prestige soul jazz style of the early 60s – and King's set up nicely in a group that features Nat Adderley, Wynton Kelly, Sam Jones, and Belton Evans. In a way, Curtis' sax can't really hold it together for these longer tracks as well as he can on shorter soul instrumentals – but the record's got a good rhythm section, and it holds together well enough as an easy grooving session. Titles include "Soul Meeting", "Lazy Soul", "All The Way", and "Do You Have Soul Now?" 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". CD2 features tracks that include "Our Love Will Never End" by The Avons, "I'm Gonna Catch You" by Curtis Carrington, "Madisonville USA (parts 1 & 2)" by The Strolls, "Juicy Fruit" by Rudy Greene, "Fine Little Girl" by The Arcades, "Ice Cream Baby" by The Pearls, "Air Raid" by Curley Hammer, "Mama Don't Allow" by Tyron Rowe, and "Korea Korea" by Bob Kent.

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".

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.
