LaVern BakerLaVern Baker Sings Bessie Smith ... LP
Atlantic, 1958. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Bessie Smith by LaVern Baker – a great blend of modes that really comes off great! Instead of sounding like a throwback blues album, the set comes across with a nice degree of contemporary class – thanks in part to a jazzy presentation that's a bit different than some of Baker's other music of the time – and which sports reeds from Sahib Shihab, tenor from Paul Quinichette, trumpet from Buck Clayton, and trombone from Jimmy Cleveland! Baker's voice is in fine form in this comfortable setting – and really works magic with tracks that include "After You've Gone", "Preaching The Blues", "Empty Bed Blues", "Back Water Blues", and "Gimme A Pigfoot". LP, Vinyl record album
(80s Jazzlore pressing. Cover has a cutout notch.)

Big MaybelleBig Maybelle – The Okeh Sessions (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Okeh/Pure Pleasure (UK), Mid 50s. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $13.99 44.99
A bit blues, a bit jazz – and a singer with a style unto her own – the amazing Big Maybelle, one of the greatest artists to record for Okeh Records in the 50s! This well-done collection pulls together every single Maybelle recorded for the R&B powerhouse back in the day – a motherlode of great work that easily puts her right up there with Lavern Baker or Ruth Brown as one of the great female singers of the 50s. The package features a whopping 22 tracks in all – including many bits that get lost between the tracks in some of the too-sifted collections of her work from the time. Titles include "Maybelle's Blues", "Hair Dressin Women", "My Big Mistake", "Ain't No Use", "One Monkey Don't Stop No Show", "So Good To My Baby", "Gabbin Blues", "You'll Never Know", and "New Kind Of Mambo".

VariousMonsters, Vampires, Voodoos, & Spooks – 33 Slabs Of Undead Rock N Roll ... CD
Jasmine (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $13.99
A hip celebration of all things spooky – pulled from that wonderful late 50s/early 60s stretch when the novelty market was overflowing with rock and soul songs based on Halloween topics! This collection is nicely huge – and while there's a few tracks here you might know from big fame, there's lots more from the the farther reaches of the trash rock underground of the period – very cool cuts that were only issued as singles, maybe just for the Halloween market, then quickly dropped out of sight! The music is a mix of R&B and early rock, with a few other styles thrown in for good measure – and titles include "The Cat" by Chris Kevin, "Frankenstein Rock" by Eddie Thomas, "I Was A Teenage Monster" by The Keytones, "Werewolf" by The Frantics, "Nightmare" by Scottie Stuart, "Voodoo Voodoo" by Lavern Baker, "Rockin In The Graveyard" by Jackie Morningstar, "The Spook Walks" by The Spooks, "The Monsters Hop" by Bert Convy, "She's My Witch" by Kip Tyler, "Frankie & Igor At A Rock N Roll Party" by Bob McFadden, "Little Demon" by Screamin Jay Hawkins, and "Nighmare Hop" by Earl Patterson with The Darts.

VariousR&B & Classic Soul Vol 1 – Workin Man's Songs From The Cellar Of Soul – 1954 to 1962 ... CD
Outta Sight (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $9.99
Deeply soulful sounds from a crucial time in music – that late 50s/early 60s stretch when R&B was merging into soul, and created so many wonderful records in the process! The set's filled with quick-stepping groovers that are on the hip side of the spectrum – tunes that might have a jazzy inflection here, or a skittish rhythm there – and always topped by a fantastic singer who really knows how to belt it out of the park! These are the same sort of gems we've been digging on Jazzman's Jukebox Jam series – and titles include "Screaming Please" by Buddy Ace, "Anytime" by Dee Irwin, "Where's My Money" by Willie Jones, "For This I Thank You" by Geno Parks Lovetones, "It's Alright" by Art Lassiter, "You Don't Have To Go" by Sam Myers, "A Help Each Other Romance" by Lavern Baker & Ben E King, "Miss You So" by Lillian Offitt, "Workin Man's Song" by The Falcons, and "Sally Lou" by Little Frankie Edwards.

✨✧ VariousYet Mo' Mod Jazz ... CD
Kent (UK), 1960s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great mix of funky jazz, jazzy funk, and funky soul – all pulled from the Atlantic catalog of the 60s, and including some very tasty numbers that were only ever issued as funky 45s! The set's one of the nicest in the great Mod Jazz series on Ace, and it's the only one to feature Atlantic material, which rarely ever gets the same funky treatment as other labels from the 60s. Titles include "The Sidewinder" by Tamiko Jones & Herbie Mann, "Do It To Death" by Jackie Ivory, "Jet Set" by Dave Pike, "Fever" by Esther Phillips, "Jam Up Twist" by Tommy Ridgely, "Sticks & Stones (part 1)" by Gene Ludwig, "Bloodshot" by Hubert Laws, "Sombrero Sam" by Charles Lloyd, "The Foolkiller" by Mose Allison, "One Note Samba" by MJQ & Laurindo Almeida, "It's A Funky Thing – Right On (part 1)" by Herbie Mann, "Watermelon Man Ska" by Byron Lee & The Dragonaires, "Trese Lobos" by Mark III Trio, "You're The Boss" by LaVern Baker & Jimmy Ricks, "Burnin Coal" by Les McCann, and "Twist City" by Matthew Gee & Johnny Griffin. 26 cuts in all – and like finding a jukebox that's lain dormant in a jazz lounge for 30 years!

✨✧ BobbettesWe Shot Mr Lee ... CD
Jasmine (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A group who are best known for one huge hit in 1957 – but one who also recorded a fair bit of other wonderful material too – not just their early singles for Atlantic Records, but also a lot of material for other companies too – as you'll hear in this collection that brings together singles for King, Jubilee, Triple X, End, and other labels too! Although a girl group, The Bobbettes have lots of nice rough edges that are more R&B and deep soul overall – hardly the sweet pop of groups that would follow them in the 60s, and instead maybe a group expression of some of the modes that Ruth Brown and Lavern Baker were cutting for Atlantic – with maybe some of the energy of the doo wop groups thrown in for good measure. CD features 31 tracks – titles include "Speedy", "Zoomy", "Untrue Love", "I Shot Mr Lee", "Mr Lee", "I Don't Like It Like That (parts 1 & 2)", "Mr Johnny Q", "Looking For A Lover", "Mama Papa", "Over There", "Loneliness", "I Cried", "Um Bow Bow", and "The Dream".
