Kitty WhiteAnd Now For Your Musical Enjoyment – Folk Songs ... LP
Mercury, 1956. Near Mint- ... $13.99
A record that has Kitty White taking on older folk themes, but turning them towards jazzier territory for the 50s! Arrangements are by Pete Rugolo and Hal Mooney – the latter of whom conducts the backings – and the instrumentation often uses woodwinds to bring in some modern phrasing, but underscores folksier elements with some guitar by Howard Roberts. The overall sound is perhaps a bit more sentimental than other White recordings of the time, but still quite a ways from familiar folk as well. Titles include "Leather Winged Bat", "If I Had A Ribbon Bow", "West Wind", "Three Ravens", "Chicken Road", "Dark As Dungeon", and "Hammer Man". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono black label pressing with deep groove. Cover has some discoloration from age, a small sticker at the spine, tiny split in the bottom seam, and a bit of pen on front.)

Kitty WhiteIntimate Kitty White (aka Moment Of Love) ... LP
World Pacific, 1955. Near Mint- ... $16.99
Some of the earliest work we've ever seen from Kitty White – and some of the most haunting as well! The album has tracks with Kitty singing only with accompaniment on harp – played by Corky Hale with a really dark, moody sort of sound – one that works perfectly with the bluer notes in Kitty's vocals. Other numbers feature a bit of flute from Bud Shank – equally blue sounds that really set a great feel for the record, and expand the release past the original tracks on the initial 10" format. There's almost a somber feel to the record – and titles include "Autumn Leaves", "That's All", "Glad To Be Unhappy", "Black Is The Color", "Yesterdays", "Long Ago & Far Away", "Everyday's A Sad Old Day", and "I'm Glad There Is You". LP, Vinyl record album
(Early 60s issue. Cover has light aging and a small sticker.)

✨✧ Tetsuji HayashiBack Mirror ... LP
Kitty (Japan), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
A really lovely album from 70s Japan – a set that's maybe a bit more understated than some of the more commercial material from the scene, but a record that's still got a wonderfully well put-together vibe! The record begins with a mellow instrumental, then opens up to vocal tracks from Tetsuji Hayashi – sung in this laidback style that really fits the blend of midtempo rhythms and keyboards that are used throughout the set – sometimes touched with larger arrangements, or augmented with backup vocals – often just served up in a lean style that really keeps things personal! As with some of the best Japanese work of the time, there's a nice current of soul that runs through the music – and titles include "Rainy Saturday & Coffee Break", "Marci 1", and a number of other tracks with titles in Japanese. LP, Vinyl record album
(Heavy Japanese pressing, just like the original – with obi!)

ImitationMuscle & Heat ... LP
Kitty/Universal (Japan), 1982. New Copy (reissue)... $49.99
A playful bit of pop from the Japanese scene of the early 80s – a set that mixes in a nice range of different styles and instrumental elements at once, maybe with the same sort of charm as some of the Ze Records material from the time! Yu Imai handles a Prophet 5 and other keyboards, and produced and arranged the set – but the real warmth of the record comes from the vocals of female singer Chibo, who's got just the right balance to make the tunes come off well – without every sounding too goofy or forced. When the lyrics are in English, she could almost hit the territory of Christina – and titles include "Thermo Limbo", "Do The Wolf", "Swimming Under Glass", "Oriental Oriental", "Exotic Dance", "Narcissa", and "Watashi No Suki Na Kuni".

✨✧ Masayoshi TakanakaInsatiable High ... LP
Kitty/Universal (Japan), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $49.99
A real gem from that key moment in Japanese fusion when some of the nation's best artists were hopping over to the American scene – cutting records like this, which often beat the American soul fusion scene at its own game – thanks to the help of a big array of all-star players! Masayoshi Takanaka plays guitar solos throughout, but also gets some help from Lee Ritenour on the electric strings – in a group that also has arrangements from Greg Adams of Tower Of Power, who brings in the rest of the TOP horns too – plus keyboards from Patrice Rushen, bass from Chuck Rainey, and drums from the great Harvey Mason – a rhythm combo that really keeps things groovy throughout. There's two vocal tracks on the set – which feature work from Jim Gilstrap, Maxi Anderson, and The Waters – on titles that include "Malibu", "ESP", "Sexy Dance", "Sundrops", "Good Bad Old Days", and the title track "Insatiable High".

✨✧ Terry CallierOccasional Rain ... CD
Cadet, 1972. New Copy ... $11.99 14.98
Terry Callier's first album for Cadet – and the kickoff of one of the greatest three album runs that any soul artist ever recorded! This one's got a different feel than the later two, as it takes songs by Terry, and structures them with these little musical "seque" tracks in between every song, done in a sparer folksy style that recalls Terry's roots in the Old Town scene in Chicago. At the time, Terry was making the transition from folk artist to soul singer – and he'd been picked up by Jerry Butler and The Dells as a promising young songwriter, one of the best talents of the second generation of Chicago soul stars. The record's a stripped-down affair that features a small group with Charles Stepney on harpsichord and organ, Callier on guitar, and backing vocals by Minnie Riperton, Shirley Wahls, and Kitty Haywood. The album kicks off with Terry's great little pop ditty "Ordinary Joe" – probably the catchiest song he ever wrote – then rolls into more somber titles like "Occasional Rain", "Do You Finally Need A Friend", "Golden Circle", and "Blues For Marcus". A totally unique album – and a prime example of the genius that was coming out of Chicago at the time! CD

Little MiltonFriend Of Mine ... LP
Glades, 1976. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Tight and soulful blues from Little Milton – just the sort of record that helped him cross over to bigger audiences back in the day, and a set that still sounds plenty great all these many years later! The set was done in Chicago – arranged by James Mack, with backing vocals from Kitty & The Haywoods – and the sound is a sweet west side mix of rootsy and soulful elements – a blend that shows the same growing sophistication of the Malaco scene at the time, at a level that moves nicely away from college circuit blues cliches of the 70s. Milton's vocals are wonderful – raspy and appealing with a Tyrone Davis-like charm – and titles include "Friend Of Mine", "Don't Turn Away", "You're Gonna Make Me Cry", "It's All Bad News", "Sundown", "Bring It On Back", and "Baby It Ain't No Way". LP, Vinyl record album

Soil & Pimp SessionsEssence Of Soil (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Victor (Japan), 2021. New Copy Gatefold ... $28.99
Maybe the greatest record we've heard so far from this Japanese jazz group – a combo we've been loving for many years, and who really seem to have unlocked some more spiritual currents in their music for this release! In the past, Soil & Pimp were often focused most strongly on the rhythms, and let their jazz soloing follow that pace – but here, they open things up with gentler, more modal elements – really letting the tunes build and find their way, and topping them off with excellent solos on trumpet, tenor, and piano! There's none of the more bombastic modes of the past, and instead these guys are at their most jazz-based to date – really getting us ready for more great records of this nature to come. The set features versions of "Inner Glimpse", "Love Supreme (part 2)", "Kitty Bey", "Soulful", "Silence", and "My Favorite Things" – all great! CD

Titles include "Better Go", "How Long Has This Been Going On?", "Kitty", "My Romance" and "Did You Call Her Today" and George & Ira Gerswin's "Embraceable You". CD

Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $19.99 22.99
The hippest funky jazz from the start of the 70s – music that takes all the pride, power, triumph, and challenge of the 60s – and focuses into a bold new energy for a young generation! The work here draws equally from jazz and soul, with lots of other global influences coming into play as well – and together, the tracks present an amazing portrait of a generation moving past the initial Civil Rights struggle – building a new culture through righteous expressions like these! Nearly every track is a classic – and all the artists are ones we've supported for years on their own reissues – and together, the tracks sound wonderful, especially when given the full sort of Soul Jazz presentation with great notes and other details. Titles include "Exchange (part 2)" by Rashied Ali & Frank Lowe, "Space Jungle Funk" by Oneness Of Juju, "Damballa" by The Pharoahs, "Whitey On The Moon" by Gil Scott Heron, "Brown Rice" by Don Cherry, "Work It Out" by Sarah Webster Fabio, "Celestial Blues" by Gary Bartz, "Beneficent" by Tribe, "Sweet Power Your Embrace" by James Mason, "Kitty Bey" by Byron Morris & Unity, "Nappy Dugout" by Funkadelic, "Theme De Yoyo" by Art Ensemble Of Chicago, and "Welcome To The Party" by Har-You Percussion Group.

VariousWild Sounds From An Overheated Jukebox – Lux & Ivy Dig Those 45s ... CD
Righteous (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99 20.99
Oh for the glory days of the 7" single – that magical late 50s/early 60s time when it seemed like there was an endless supply of weird and wonderful records all the time – and at prices that allowed them to circulate easily, even if they weren't big hits! (And why are 7" singles so expensive these days?) The package is a fantastic testament to that wonderful musical moment – when you might stumble across a backroom jukebox, stuffed with overlooked gems – just waiting for you to discover them, and get them blasting out of the bassy speaker with the drop of your dime. Few folks know this generation better than Lux and Ivy of The Cramps – a pair who were record collectors before they even made a single of their own – and the set features a stunning 50 rare nuggets – with titles that include "The Mash" by Bud Spudd & The Sprouts, "No Time" by The Titans, "Purr Kitty Purr" by Sid King & The Five Strings, "Time Machine" by The Gamblers, "Little Bitty Girl" by The Memories, "The Little Martian" by Jan Amber, "The Last Meal" by Hurricane Harry, "Hello Schoolteacher" by The 4 After 5s, "Peach Fuzz" by Bob Taylor, "Zindy Lou" by The Mariners, "My Memories Of You" by Yolanda & The Natural, "Wolf Call" by Mark Anthony, "Nameless" by Bob Strauss, "Heartbeat" by The Threeteens, "I Dreamed I Was Elvis" by Sonny Cole & The Rhythm Roamers, "Mental Cruelty" by Larry & Dixie Davis, and "Bodacious" by The US Rockets.

✨✧ VariousLux & Ivy Dig Insane Rockabilly – Over Fifty 45s About Mad Men, Playboys, Cars, Bugs, & Brawls ... CD
Righteous (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Lux and Ivy have given us plenty of great music in plenty of great styles – but the duo are probably closest to the raw spirit of the early rockabilly years – a sound that was instrumental in their music as The Cramps! Here, the duo dig through some of their favorite rare singles from way way back – the kind of obscure cuts that even go past some of the better-done European compilations in recent decades – and which remind us that Lux and Ivy were out in the field digging for rare records back in the early 70s – when some of these impossible-to-find numbers might still have been around. As with other titles in this series, the scope of subject matter is great, and the tunes are plenty wild – 52 tracks that include "Date On The Corner" by Don Feger, "Bip Bop Boom" by Mickey Hawks, "Sweet Rockin Mama" by The Hi Tombs, "Don't Bug Me Baby" by Milton Allen, "Did We Have A Party" by Billy Brown, "Chicken Rock" by Fat Daddy Holmes, "Blast Off" by Alden Holloway, "Lonely" by Bobby McDowell, "Here Kitty Kitty" by Jimmy Murphy, "I'm A Madman" by Willie Ward & The Warblers, and "Woodpecker Rock" by Nat County & The Braves.

A killer set of funky fusion from the Czech scene of the 70s – a place where secret albums like this were issued at the time, but never got the circulation as work from the German scene – such as electric funk albums on MPS! Yet the feel here is very similar to the best on that label – plenty of electric piano over the top of the funky bass and drums, and choppy reed solos peppering the groove on the best tracks too! Most of the set is instrumental, but there's one number with really great scatting jazz vocals in a Kitty Winter mode – the hard-grooving "Divka S Jablky" – plus the titles "Pulnocni", "Obrazarna", "Sen O Zemi", "Piscene Peresypy", and "More Klidu". CD features five bonus tracks – including "Obratnik Raka", "Vevere U Pepika", "Rimsky Karneval", and "Jeste Neni Pozde". CD
