LarksAnother Sleepless Night/For The Love Of Money ... 7-inch
Preservation Project, Late 60s. New Copy ... $6.99 12.00
A rare slice of Philly – two unusual tracks by The Larks – a group who are different than the doo wop act of the 50s! "Another Sleepless Night" has this rolling romp of a groove – harmonies cresting over the top while piano tinkles along with the rhythms – a bit too fast to be a late nite group soul gem, but still very much in the same spirit! "For The Love Of Money" is not the O'Jays tune, but another track entirely – equally great in its east coast harmony soul approach – and with a similar sort of midtempo groove! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Note: originally announced as by an unknown artist – mystery revealed after the record was pressed!)

✨✧ VariousSweet Soul Music 1964 – 31 Scorching Classics ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), 1964. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A massive batch of music – and almost as worth it for the overall package as it is for the great tunes inside! Like other volumes in this series, this set is beautifully put together – not only stuffed with an amazing array of classic soul from a key year in the 60s – but also done with a full color booklet that's over 60 pages long – filled with track-by-track notes on the tunes, and filled with great photos, images, and historical data! The whole thing's a perfect soul music time capsule – with the depth of production that we've always loved in Bear Family releases for other genres. Titles include "Oh No Not My Baby" by Maxine Brown, "The Jerk" by The Larks, "Needle In A Haystack" by The Velvelettes, "Chapel Of Love" by The Dixie Cups, "Wish Someone Would Care" by Irma Thomas, "Funny" by Joe Hinton, "20 75" by Willie Mitchell, "Steal Away" by Jimmy Hughes, "Security" by Otis Redding, and "Devil With The Blue Dress" by Shorty Long.

✨✧ SeicheDemo Press ... LP
Jackpot, 1979. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The "demo press" here gives it all away – as the record was never intended for formal release – and instead was a self-produced project by the musicians and the producer! The set was recorded at the end of the 70s, but has a vibe that's very different than most of the music from that time – progressive, but in a casual way – as befits the trio's look on the cover – a group that features Marc Levinson on drums, Tom Vess on bass, and Steve Zahradnik on guitar – with vocals from the latter two. All tracks are original, and handled with impeccable instrumentation – the sort that some major label would have taken, polished up, and made some clunky early 80s crossover record – but which is much more pure here. Titles include "Evidently Me", "Islands", "Dissonant Toys", "Medicine Man", "Good Mourning", and "In The Calm Of Your Eye". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes poster and download with the extra track "Larks' Tongues In Aspic Pt 2"!)

Clark SistersYou Brought The Sunshine – The Sound Of Gospel Recordings 1976 to 1981 ... CD
Westbound (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $12.99 18.99
A long-overdue look at the amazing Clark Sisters – a fantastic gospel group, and one with a vocal depth that we'd put right up there next to any of our favorite soul acts of the time! The Clarks are maybe best known for their landmark track "You Brought The Sunshine" – a completely righteous blend of gospel, soul, and disco that crossed over very big back in the day – but the group have an endless amount of great music to offer, a great deal of which is brought together in this wonderful set! The sisters always kept a strong ear towards the secular soul styles of their day – but they also always pushed things with the sort of amazing vocal interplay that used to only be the territory of male gospel groups in earlier decades – fantastic harmonies, soaring leads, and really great group formation. And if you're not a completely huge fan of gospel, don't worry – because the message here is often a more general one of positivity, which really lifts up the spirit of the tunes in a universal way. Titles include "You Brought The Sunshine (single edit)", "Everything Is Gonna Be Alright", "He Keeps Me Company", "Patience", "I'm Going To Have Just What I Want", "Power", "Overdose Of The Holy Ghost", "My Mind Is Made Up", "Nothing To Lose All To Gain", "No Other Name", "Keep On Looking Up", and "I Found What I'm Looking For".

Four TopsReach Out ... LP
Motown, 1967. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A classic 60s album by the Four Tops – really one of their better efforts of the period – a record that finds the group working some soulful magic on a couple of their best known tunes, as well as adding a dose of deeper emotion to some hit songs of the time! Like other Motown success stories from that time, this set features some pop tunes and standard chart material, done by the group in their inimitable harmony style – with a few hits like "Reach Out, I'll Be There" and "7 Rooms Of Gloom" – plus wonderful interpretations of songs like "Walk Away Renee", "Last Train To Clarksville", and "I'm A Believer". Also includes "What Else Is There To Do", "Bernadette", and "Standing In The Shadows Of Love". LP, Vinyl record album

MonkeesGreatest Hits (Arista) ... LP
Arista, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $14.99
The Monkees had so many fantastic records during their short span of recording, nearly all of them might well be "greatest hits" – but this set does a nice job of slimming the selection down to focus on some of the most long-lasting tracks from the group! There's a few killer Boyce & Hart compositions, produced by the duo too – and the set also features contributions from other 60s pop heavyweights, like Chip Douglas, Neil Diamond, Jeff Barry, and the duo of Carole King & Gerry Goffin – all of whim give the foursome some great material, on tunes that include "Theme From The Monkees", "Last Train To Clarksville", "She", "Listen To The Band", "A Little Bit Me A Little Bit You", "Daydream Believer", "Pleasant Valley Sunday", "Steppin Stone", "I'm A Believer", and "I Wanna Be Free".

Colgems, 1966. Very Good ... $11.99
The first-ever album from The Monkees – a set that's overflowing with great numbers from the teams of Boyce & Hart and Goffin & King – plus one original by Mike Nesmith himself! The whole thing's groovy as groovy can be – and despite any thoughts that folks at the time might have had about these guys being just a TV one-off, the album's got fantastic styling power over the years – thanks to wonderful vocals, impeccable production, and a great selection of songs! Titles include "Theme From The Monkees", "Just Doesn't Seem To Be My Day", "Last Train To Clarksville", "Sweet Young Thing", "Papa Gene's Blues", "Take A Giant Step", "Tomorrow's Gonna Be Another Day", and "Saturday's Child".

Cassandra WilsonNew Moon Daughter ... CD
Blue Note, 1995. Used ... $2.99
A pivotal set from Cassanda Wilson – and a record that firmly established her as one of the freshest new singers in jazz at the time! The album's awash in rootsy, dusky tones – and has an earthiness that's clearly inspired by older blues, but expressed by Cassandra in voicings that are more clearly jazz-based. Titles include an unusual range of covers – used in this way many years before the Starbucks generation of vocalists made it common place – with covers that include "Last Train To Clarksville", "Harvest Moon", "Skylark", and "Love Is Blindness" – alongside originals that include "Until", "A Little Warm Death", "Find Him", "Solomon Song", and "Memphis".

VariousBulawayo Blue Yodel – Omasiganda, Troubadours & High Lonesome Sounds Of Zimbabwe, Kenya & South Africa 1948 to 1959 ... LP
Mississippi, Late 40s/1950s. New Copy ... $13.99
A really unusual slice of music from the southern African scene of the postwar years – sounds from a strange wave of cowboy-inspired music in Zimbabwe and South Africa – but with results that are completely unique! Many of these guys actually wore cowboy hats and played acoustic guitar – but the sounds are very different than American hillbilly records from the period – in part because the presentation and production are different, as is the language – but also because the guitar is used in ways that would evolve into more familiar African styles in later decades – echoes of Malian blues, highlife rhythms, and other modes. But at the same time, there actually is a bit of yodel on some of the songs, as indicated by the title – an undeniable Jimmie Rogers influence – in a set of tracks that includes work by Sammy Nagaku, Clarkson Sithole, Josaya Hadebe, Petrus Mntambo, Mathew Jeffries, George Sibanda, Sabelo Mathe, and Michael Majozi. LP, Vinyl record album
(Comes with a big booklet of notes on the music, too!)

VariousIf I Had A Pair Of Wings – Jamaican Doo Wop Vol 1 ... LP
Death Is Not The End, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $19.99 21.98
Very early work from the Jamaican scene – a set that includes cuts by artists who'd later record classic tracks in the rocksteady years, but who here are working in a much different mode! The title is plenty apt, but only gets at part of the sound – as this isn't straight doo wop as you'd know from the American scene, but instead some early group harmony – of the sort that would flourish even more strongly on famous Jamaican trio recordings of the late 60s – handled here with much more stripped-down instrumentation, and a shifting set of rhythms that mixes US influences with other more Caribbean modes. Titles include "Muriel" by Alton & Eddie, "Dearest Darling" by Jiving Juniors, "Til The End Of Time" by Chuck & Dobby, "Dearest Beverly" by Jimmy Cliff, "Heavenly Angel" by Laurel Aitken, "Do You Know" by Owen & Millie, "I'm Going Back" by The Charmers, "Diamonds & Pearls" by Dobby Dobson, and "Album Of Memory" by The Mellowlarks.

✨✧ Junior KimbroughMeet Me In The City ... LP
Fat Possum, 1990s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Raw, intimate Junior Kimbrough recordings, mostly from the early 90s, a number of which were recorded at home – and for the all hiss and murk of the recording quality, the intimacy and realness of the voice, guitar and the man's presence alone make up for it! Spare, lonely blues from Junior that's as quite raw, but endearingly so, and there's some incredible stuff here. The opening title tune has Junior sounding pretty vulnerable and tender hearting, which is pretty amazing – and other numbers include "Done Got Old", "Baby Please Don't Leave Me", "Lonesome Road", "Junior's Place" and a great trio of recordings from the 1993 Sunflower Blues Festival in Clarksdale, MS: "I Feel Alright", "All Night Long" and "Nobody But You".

✨✧ VariousGive Me My Flowers – Powerhouse Gospel Music From The 50s & 60s On Nashboro Records ... LP
Nashboro/Third Man, 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic collection of postwar gospel recordings from the legendary Nashboro Records – one of the most important imprints for the music back in the 50s and 60s! We rank the work of Nashboro right up with the famous Houston-bred productions of Peacock Records – and as Peacock was part of the secular soul label Duke, Nashboro was also part of the blues powerhouse Excello – which means that the cuts here are put together at a level that's maybe got as much understanding of the needs of the record racks and jukebox scene, as they are aimed at the higher ideals of the lyrics! Nashboro excelled especially in the sorts of small vocal groups that can make gospel singles from this time every bit as much a slice of harmony heavy as rare doo wop tracks – and titles here include "Seven Angels" by The Trumpeteers, "Just One Step" by Little Johnny Jones & The Little Jones Singers, "I Received My Blessing" by Radio Four, "Touch Me Lord Jesus" by Angelic Gospel Singers, "Give Me My Flowers" by The Consolers, "I Would Not Be A Sinner" by Dixie Nightingales, "Jesus Keeps Me Alive" by The Skylarks, "Sit Down Servant" by Swanee Quintet, "When Jesus Stays Home" by Southern Echoes Singers, and "Rest From My Labor" by Supreme Angels. 16 cuts in all – and very nicely done!
