King RoosterSnitchin, Stichin, & Bitchin/Loose Lips ... 7-inch
Funk Night, 2020. New Copy ... $12.99
There's some great super-fast guitar wah-wahing away at the start of "Snitchin" – kind of like The Meters on speed, followed by these organ blasts that encourage the energy of the groove as the keyboard soars in some sweet solo moments! "Loose Lips" is slower, and has a classic-styled drum break at the start – before moving into a bassline that steps all up and down the groove – and lots more of that mighty nice organ! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Rene HallMy Kind Of Rocking – The Unsung Rock N Roll, R&B Guitarist, & Arranger 1950 to 1960 ... CD
Jasmine (UK), 1950s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Fantastic early work from Rene Hall – a talent you've probably heard on record before in a variety of different formats – as Hall was a key arranger, producer, and session musician on the LA scene of the 50s and 60s! Yet here, Rene's also the leader – stepping out in small combo modes on a host of rare singles, both 78s and 45s – starting out in a mode that echoes some of the best jump blues/instrumental R&B styles coming out of LA in the postwar years – then moving into styles that are more rocking and early soul as the 50s move on! Hall plays guitar throughout, and other musicians include Plas Johnson and Buddy Tate on tenors, Ernie Freeman on piano, and Earl Palmer on drums – and the set features a whopping 29 tracks in all, including "My Uncle", "Bitter Winds", "Voodoo Moon", "Blue Creek Hop", "Chitling Switch", "The Parrot & The Rooster", "Southgate", "Cleo", "Thunderbird", "That's It", "The Untouchables", "Night Fright", and the fuzz guitar monster "Twitchy" – worth the price of the CD alone!

Sam CookePortrait Of A Legend 1951 to 1964 ... CD
Abkco, Late 50s/Early 60s. Used ... $6.99
A massive collection of work by the great Sam Cooke – featuring 30 tunes in all, and spanning the range of his full career – from his early roots in gospel music, to the incredibly powerful soul tunes he cut shortly before his untimely death. The set's got most everything you'd ever want to hear if you're looking for an overview of Sam's work – with titles that include "A Change Is Gonna Come", "Another Saturday Night", "Good Times", "Having A Party", "Sugar Dumpling", "Ain't That Good News", "Nothing Can Change This Love", "Little Red Rooster", "I'll Come Running Back To You", "What A Wonderful World", "Cupid", "Chain Gang", "Summertime", and "Only Sixteen".

✨✧ Howlin WolfLondon Sessions ... LP
Chess, 1970. Very Good ... $9.99
A famous date that showcases the Chess Records influence on the sound of the Brit rock scene – one that has a number of key players "giving back" to the label, and working on a special date with Howlin Wolf! Wolf's rough vocals are in the lead on all tracks, and he also plays a bit of harmonica and guitar as well – and other artists include Steve Winwood on piano and organ, Eric Clapton on guitar, Bill Wyman on bass, and Charlie Watts on drums – all players who are respectful of the original bluesy sound of Chess, and who clearly dig the opportunity to show off their chops in the setting. Titles include "I Ain't Superstitious", "Poor Boy", "Do The Do", "Red Rooster", "Built For Comfort", "What A Woman", "Highway 49", "Who's Been Talking", and "Rocking Daddy". LP, Vinyl record album

Ohio PlayersPleasure (expanded & remastered) (UK pressing) ... CD
Westbound (UK), 1972. New Copy ... $9.99 14.99
A true pleasure indeed – easily one of the greatest records ever by the Ohio Players, and a perfect summation of all things great in their groove! The album's a landmark effort – even for the heady days of the early 70s – as the Players manage to bring together a fair bit of jazz with their famous guitar-driven funk – all in a blend that's a lot more sophisticated than most other funk combos of the time, from the rhythms at the bottom to the instrumentation on the top! There's a darkness here that's undeniable – but the album's also not just a head trip into the fuzziest reaches of the studio – as the jazzier inflections help illuminate the farthest corners, and really bring the whole album back to focus with a wonderfully redemptive groove! Psychedelic elements are still all over the place, but also used sparingly enough to be most effective – a brilliant balance that few groups of this type were ever able to muster. Titles include the classic "Funky Worm", with the wild moogy bit that's been sampled loads of times over the years by a gazillion hip hoppers – plus loads of other nice ones, like the slow bonking funker "Pride & Vanity", the wild "Walt's First Trip", and the groovy "Laid It" – as well as "Pleasure", "Paint Me", "Our Love Has Died", and "Walked Away From You". CD features amazing sound and a whopping 7 bonus tracks – including "Ruffell Foot", "What It Is", "Rooster Poot", "Gone Forever", "Dimensions In Time", and "Introducing The Players". CD

✨✧ Wayne RaneySongs Of The Hills ... CD
King, Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Not the usual sounds you might expect from postwar country music – as Wayne Raney's an unusual star from the King Records roster – one who could play harmonica as well as sing, and who definitely brought a strong boogie current to his hillbilly material! The album's a heavyweight collection of Raney's early work for King – classic singles, pulled together into a full album that's got a lot more bite than you might expect from the domestic image on the cover! Titles include "Lost John Boogie", "Pardon My Whiskers", "The Roosters Are Crowing", "We Love To Live", "My Annabelle Lee", "I Done & Sold My Soul", "Gone With The Wind This Morning", and "Catfish Baby".

✨✧ OutkastIdlewild ... LP
LaFace/Zomba, 2006. New Copy 3LPs ... Out Of Stock
The new album from Outkast and the soundtrack to their film Idlewild! Outkast has been daring haters for years to pounce at will – and they really take that approach to the next level by making what is far and away their oddest project in midst of the most scrutiny they will probably ever receive. We're lacking a bit of perspective in that we haven't seen the movie – but the best stuff probably makes it worth picking up. Idlewild continues the tag team style of Speakerboxx/Love Below in that the duo rarely appear together on the same tracks. The single "Mighty O" is the most notable expection, in that both rappers do their thing on it – and 3000 is actually rapping! The rest of the album, surprisingly, has a fairly coherent flow – with little touches of the 1930s vibe and atmosphere ( the setting of the film) – as envisioned by forward looking hip hoppers. It's a daring set of tracks with strong moments – and lots of additional singing by Sleepy Brown and others. Tracks include "Mighty O", "Peaches" feat Sleepy Brown & Scar, "Idlewild Blue (Don'tchu Worry 'Bout Me", "N2U" feat Khujo Goodie, "Morris Brown" feat Scar & Sleepy Brown, "Chronomentrophobia", "The Train" feat Sleep Brown & Scar, "Life Is Like A Musical", "Hollywood Divorce" feat Lil' Wayne & Snoop Dogg, "Buggface", "PJ & Rooster", "Greatest Show On Earth" feat Macy Gray. "When I Look In Your Eyes", "Dyin' To Live" and "A Bad Note". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousPeephole In My Brain – The British Progressive Pop Sounds Of 1971 (3CD set) ... CD
Grapefruit (UK), 1971. New Copy 3CD ... $24.99
Short songs, but exploding with a huge range of new musical ideas – not the side-long jams of the progressive rock generation, but instead some singles and album tracks that manage to pack all of the best elements into some mighty catchy tunes! These tracks all benefit from a huge explosion of ideas in songwriting, arranging, and production – the sorts that are famously served up on prog albums of the time, but which are maybe even more impressive when turned to tracks that are more condensed and surprisingly catchy – which is what we can say about all the many musical gems in this set! As with other of the "year" series from Grapefruit, the music here is a fantastic blend of artists you might know and others you'll discover here for the first time – all supported by a very detailed set of notes, and a track list of 71 killer tracks by artists who include Cressida, The Move, Stray, Stackridge, Dana Gillespie, Sakkarin, Curved Air, Status Quo, Atomic Rooster, Terry Dactyl & The Dinosaurs, Phase 3, Dear Mr Time, Edwards Hand, Lifblud, Don Crown & His Busking Buddies, Edgar Broughton Band, Fickle Pickle, Unicorn, Factory, Shape Of The Rain, Ray Fenwick, Pluto, Fusion Farm, Zior, Nimbo, Second Hand, Colin Blunstone, Rockin Horse, Nirvana, Bill Nelson, Curtiss Maldoon, Blonde On Blonde, and many more.

✨✧ Otis ClaySoul Man – Live In Japan ... LP
Rooster, 1985. Near Mint- 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Otis Clay recorded live in Japan – working before a very appreciative audience, and hitting grooves that are right up there with his best 70s work on Hi Records! The sound is a bit looser than Hi – which is a nice change – and Clay's really in command on the set, leading the group with a strong sense of personality, and serving up great vocals with a strong deep soul feel. The grooves are filled with classic Memphis soul moments – and titles titles include "Hard Working Woman", "Ellie", "Trying To Live My Life Without You", "His Precious Love", "Love & Happiness", "Here I Am Baby", and "Love Don't Love Nobody".
