Makossa, 1983. Very Good- ... $19.99
A nice set from King Sunny Ade, licensed to the Makossa label, but in the style of his African recordings, featuring a number of shorter compositions strung together into side-longsuites. Hypnotic guitar lines and gentle diatonic melodies float over propulsive percolating percussion, with interjections from talking drum popping up here and there. Includes "Ajo Ni Mo Re", "Pegan Pegan", "Oluwa Lagboju Le", "Gbeyogbeyo", "Penkele", "Ewele" and "Tolongo". LP, Vinyl record album

We have to be honest, we know a little bit about African music, but not a lot. So when we came across a small stack of African records, we scooped them up and put them online, but rather than insult those of you out there who know and love this stuff, we're just listing them at a nice price without trying to describe them, and are confident you fans of the real deep African grooves will be able to know what you're looking at. This album features 10 tracks, including "Destiny", "Mo Gbadura", "Ojowu", "Ipe Ndun", "Laiye Ijosi" and "Teni Ni Teni". LP, Vinyl record album

Blood & Fire (UK), Mid 70s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
More raw rhythms dubbed into infinity by the master King Tubby! The number of incredible dubs produced by Tubby is almost overwhelming, but to us, they're all essentials. Here, Blood & Fire collects his work with producer Glen Brown, with some highlights from the renowned sax player "Dirty" Harry Hall. The rest of the band is like a laundry list of heavies: from Carlton Barrett, Fish Clarke & Santa Davis to Family Man, Robbie Shakespeare, Earl Lindo & Ansel Collins. There's some heavy mid 70s cuts here, like the title track, a take on the Dirty Harry rhythm, and our favorite, the flying cymbal update to the Death in the Arena rhythm "Version 78 Style". Also includes "Lamb's Bread Dubwise", "Wicked Tumbling Version" & "Wicked Can't Run This Dub". 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

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

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".

✨✧ Nat King ColeNat King Cole Sings/George Shearing Plays (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol, 1961. Used ... $4.99
A nice little session that's one of Nat's last great vocal albums – thanks to some solid jazz backing by George Shearing. Shearing's group here is a super-hip west coast Latin one, with Emil Richards on vibes, Al Hendrickson on guitar, Al McKibbon on bass, and Shelly Manne on drums. Most tracks have them augmented by some larger backings by Ralph Carmichael – which creates this dreamy jazzy pillow for Nat to sing over. Cole's voice is still super-sweet and super-sexy, and the record is a good mix of ballads and more jazzy material. Titles include "Lost April", "Azure-Te", "September Song", "Don't Go", "There's A Lull In My Life", and "Serenata". Plus, the CD includes 3 bonus tracks not on the original album! CD

Capitol, Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Late work by Nat King Cole – and pretty nice, too! A record that tends to fall off the map of Nat's classic Capitol catalog, as its from the later years, when his overall concept was possibly a bit diluted, but his voice was still going strong. Orchestrations on the album is courtesy of Nelson Riddle, David Cavanaugh, and Ralph Carmichael – and there's some nice 60s easy touches, like use of electric bass, which sets the tempo of the tunes strongly. Titles include "Make It Last", "Mr Wishing Well", "United", and "Unfair". LP, Vinyl record album

Nat King ColeThose Lazy Hazy Crazy Days Of Summer ... LP
Capitol, 1963. Near Mint- ... $7.99
A great later record from Nat King Cole – kind of corny, but in a really great way – and in a style that ended up making the whole thing a real standout in Nat's last few years on the planet! The songs are mostly old-timey, but swung by Nat in this weird 60s version of nostalgia that really really works – and makes for this odd fantasy of a youth that Cole probably never had himself, directed at a version of mainstream America that would hardly have given an entertainer like him the time of day back in the 30s! Ralph Carmichael handles the arrangements – and in addition to the hit title track "Those Lazy Hazy Crazy Days Of Summer", other titles include "That's What They Meant", "Don't Forget", "Get Out & Get Under The Moon", and "After The Ball Is Over".

Four King CousinsIntroducing The Four King Cousins ... CD

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".

BB KingHere's One You Didn't Know About – From The RPM & Kent Vaults ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
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".

Arrangements on the set are by Maxwell Davis – who has this great way of bringing out some of the jazzier currents in BB's music – almost the same Memphis blend that Bobby Blue Bland was using at the time – really showing a new level of sophistication added to the blues! BB's guitar and vocals are wonderful – with this bold, youthful power that's free from any cliche or easy modes – and titles include "Beautician Blues", "The Jungle", "5 Long Years", "Eyesight To The Blind", "Blue Shadows", "The Worst Thing In My Life", "Blues Stay Away", "Got Em Bad", and "It's A Mean World".

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!

Ben E KingDon't Play That Song ... CD
Atco (UK), 1962. Used ... $11.99
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".

Ben E KingSpanish Harlem/Don't Play That Song ... CD
Collectables/Atlantic, Early 60s. Used ... $7.99
2 albums' worth of incredible work from Ben E King! Spanish Harlem is a classic – and forget that you've heard the title track a million times, because the album's a treasure all the way through – packed with beautiful tunes arranged and produced by the Lieber-Stoller tune, in that mix of baion rhythms that they were crafting in the uptown studios for the Drifters during the early 60s. The leadoff cut is the amazing "Amor", a lightly grooving number that should have been massive – and just about every other cut is a similar Latin-tinged number. Titles include "Come Closer To Me", "Sway", "Love Me, Love Me", "Frenesi", "Souvenir Of Mexico", and "Besame Mucho". Don't Play That Song is equally great – with some darker numbers done in Ben's increasingly uptown soul style. Titles 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".

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!

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!

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".

Evelyn Champagne KingEvelyn Champagne King – The RCA Albums 1977 to 1985 (8CD set) ... CD
RCA/Soulmusic.com (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 8CD ... Just Sold Out!
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.

Some tracks were done down at Criteria Studios in Miami, and have a warmly southern sort of glow – others were done in the UK with Mike Vernon with a bit more of a rockish feel, and a few more were done for radio, with a slightly rougher edge than the rest.

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

The trio of talents really make the album crackle – and despite a goofy cover (or maybe because of it!), the whole thing's one of our favorite albums on King from back in the day.

Yet standing up front here on his own, Jay's maybe in his greatest position ever – really turning into a great mellow soul singer in his later years, and serving up a set of original tracks that should have been classics! Production is tight, but never slick – and there's often some strong use of saxophone next to King's voice – which has a raspy charm as it flows out over the keyboards, on titles that include "Good Kinda Lovin", "Runnin", "Trying To Get You Back", "I'm Where You Belong", "The One", and "Take My Breath Away". CD also features two bonus tracks – "Runnin (Boogie Back radio)" and "Runnin (Boogie Back extended)". CD

This second album for Reprise is a much more extroverted than the quite strong It's A Quiet Thing LP from a year before – with arranger Torrie Zito grooving out into a lightly swinging sound, in place of his chillier, almost noir approach on the previous LP! 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! Titles include "Anything Goes", "Nobody Else But Me", "I Thought Of You Last Night", "You Fascinate Me So", "The Best Is Yet To Come", "Wild Is Love" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

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".

✨✧ King CrimsonIn The Court Of The Crimson King ... LP
Atlantic, 1969. Near Mint- 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

✨✧ King CurtisInstant Groove/Get Ready ... CD
Atco/Wounded Bird, 1969/1970. New Copy ... $6.99 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

King CurtisOld Gold/Doing The Dixie Twist ... CD
Tru Sound/Ace (UK), 1961/1962. Used ... $8.99
2 rare pre-Atlantic albums from the legendary King Curtis – back to back on one CD! Old Gold is a sweet early cooker from King – recorded with a raw sound and a sense of fire that most of his other albums from this time didn't have! Part of the difference here is the setting – as the album's cut for Prestige's Tru-Sound subsidiary, which tended to have a rougher, more R&B approach. But another key factor is the group on the set – as it includes Jack McDuff on organ, Billy Butler and Eric Gale on guitars, and Willie Rodriguez on bongos and congas – all of whom make for some great added attractions to the record, and a really cohesive sound that's way more than just King blowing away on sax! Titles are all "old gold" numbers, but updated here with a hipper instrumental groove – and tracks include "Fever", "Honky Tonk", "So Rare", "Tippin In", "The Hucklebuck", "Lean Baby", and "Soft" – all taken almost in a King Records instrumental mode! Doing The Dixie Twist is an album 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". CD

Prestige, 1960. Used ... $9.99
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?" CD

The album's got a laidback vibe that really reflects the personal inner spirit that was taking hold of the Jamaican scene at the time – a mode that's more understated than on some of the big lyrical anthems of the time, but which comes through beautifully in the way that Tubby and crew are able to center themselves instrumentally. Bunny Lee produced, and dubs are of tracks by Cornell Campbell, Derrick Morgan, Mighty Diamonds, Johnny Clarke, and others – on titles that include "Natty Dub", "Lee's Dub", "I'm Gone Dub", "Rasta Train Dub", "Feel Lost Dub", "Dawn Dub", "Move Out Of Babylon Dub", "Country Boy Dub", "True Believer Dub", and "When Will I Find My Way Dub".

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".

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!

Shearing's group here is a super-hip west coast Latin one, with Emil Richards on vibes, Al Hendrickson on guitar, Al McKibbon on bass, and Shelly Manne on drums. Most tracks have them augmented by some larger backings by Ralph Carmichael – which creates this dreamy jazzy pillow for Nat to sing over. Cole's voice is still super-sweet and super-sexy, and the record is a good mix of ballads and more jazzy material. Titles include "Lost April", "Azure-Te", "September Song", "Don't Go", "There's A Lull In My Life", and "Serenata". LP, Vinyl record album
(Canadian yellow label pressing.)
