Floating Points, Pharoah Sanders, & The London Symphony OrchestraPromises ... LP
Luaka Bop, 2021. New Copy Gatefold ... $21.99 22.99
A fantastic record, and one of those cases where the presence of the mighty Pharoah Sanders can really transform the sound of a session! We'll admit that we weren't sure what to expect – but at the core, the record is really a set of duets between Pharoah on tenor and Sam Shepherd on keyboards – a great range that includes Fender Rhodes, Hammond B3, celeste, and acoustic piano – slowly graced by some larger arrangements from the LSO! Yet even with the majesty of the larger group, who come into the proceedings in baby steps, there's a core feeling of intimacy that never goes away – sublimely spiritual sounds from Pharoah on tenor throughout – with phrasing and styles that show us that he hasn't lost an ounce of his talent since his early years on Impulse records. The album's maybe one of the most beautiful things that Sanders has given us in a long time – and that's saying a lot, as he's always pretty great – and the set features the long "Promises" suite, in nine movements – a piece for saxophone, strings, keyboards, and electronics composed by Shepherd.

Julie LondonFor The Night People (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Liberty/Universal (Japan), 1966. New Copy ... $16.99
Mature, mellow, and totally wonderful – clear proof that Julie London was still making great music well into the 60s! The album's got a simple, unassuming charm – very much in the late nite mode you'd guess from the title, with spare backings from Don Bagley that often have a key guitar line in the mix – working along with London's vocals in the same style as the mid 50s – but with a different feel overall – a bit more mature and world-wise, which makes for a perfect fit for tunes that include "I Got It Bad", "Here's That Rainy Day", "Am I Blue", "I'll Never Smile Again", "Can't Get Out Of This Mood", and "When The Sun Comes Out".

Julie LondonNice Girls Don't Stay For Breakfast (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Liberty/Universal (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... $16.99
Julie London's shortened her trademark tresses for the cover of this album – but as the title will tell, she's very much in the best sultry territory of her earlier years! This time around, Don Bagley's turned in some near-perfect arrangements that really bring back the London sound of the late 50s – very spare, slow-moving backdrops that are heavy on jazz, and also feature nice use of guitar – an instrument that's always worked well for Julie. Titles include the excellent "Nice Girls Don't Stay For Breakfast" – plus "I've Got A Crush On You", "There Will Never Be Another You", "I Surrender Dear", "Give A Little Whistle", "Baby Won't You Please Come Home", and the very odd "Mickey Mouse".

Julie LondonSend For Me (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Liberty/Universal (Japan), 1961. New Copy ... $16.99
The album's got a sultry cover, but it turns out to be a surprising swinger – one of Julie London's great sessions done with Jimmy Rowles – put together with a bit more punch than some of her 50s records, and featuring some nicely playful instrumentation too! Jimmy's at his best here, and although the band's not credited, it clearly features some great west coast hornmen – who get these nice little licks in, almost adding in their own voice alongside Julie's! Titles include "Baby Come Home", "Get On The Right Track", "Tain't What You Do", "Everyday", "Yes Indeed", "Send For Me", and "Cheatin On Me". CD

A really wonderful later score from John Barry – and key proof of the maturity he really hit in his music during the 80s! There's a style here that goes way beyond most of his soundtracks of the 60s – and even of the 70s – a depth of feeling and jazzy approach that's almost like some of the best vintage work by Johnny Mandel!

✨✧ Julie LondonBody & Soul – The Incomparable Julie London (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Liberty/Universal (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Plenty of body, and even more soul – a great little groove on the record at points, in that slinky, vampy sort of mode that Julie London picked up in the 60s! The album's got Julie taking on a fair bit of R&B and bluesy numbers – still singing in her more jazz-based style, but getting a nice groove on most numbers from Kirk Stuart – balancing out some piano-led grooves with more brassy backings, all very much in the style of Peggy Lee over at Capitol in the early 60s – yet completely different too, given London's vocal approach. Titles include "Romance In The Dark", "I Got A Sweetie", "The Comeback", "Come On By", "If You Want This Love", and "Treat Me Good". CD

Concord, 1978. Near Mint- ... $6.99 9.99
70s live material from singer Ernestine Anderson – half from the Concord Jazz Festival, half from a London performance at Ronnie Scott's – hence the title! The first half has this swinging jazz festival vibe – Ernestine really reaching out to win over the crowd with her charms, and backing by a core trio with Hank Jones on piano, occasionally expanded into a bigger ensemble. The London tracks are a bit more intimate, and feature a trio with John Horler on piano – and some especially great phrasing from Anderson. Titles include "Stormy Monday", "Days Of Wine & Roses", "I Don't Get Around Much Anymore", "Love For Sale", and a long "Ellington Medley". LP, Vinyl record album

Louie Bellson recorded in London – heading up a big band that features Frank Strazzeri on piano, Geurge Duvivier on bass, and a heck of a lot of horn players in the mix! The group's got a bold, upbeat sort of feel – similar to some of the later Buddy Rich groups of the 70s – and given Rich's popularity in the UK, one might almost think that Bellson's going for a similar vibe here! Tracks are long, with just the right amount of complicated overtones to keep things interesting – and titles include "Blues For Freddy", "Sing A Song Of Love", "Santos", "Put It Right There", "Jus Fer Us", and "Drum Squad".

Epic, 1979. Used ... $2.99
Quite possibly the crowning masterpiece by The Clash – and a record that certainly pushed them out of the punk rock ghetto and into the collections of countless mainstream folks over the years! This is the set that really pushed the group over the top – the one that harnessed all the best energy of the previous two records and gave it a strong new focus – one that draws on roots as deep as the late 50s Elvis reference of the cover art, but which also bubbled over with newly approaching 80s musical ideas and politics! Yet the message never gets in the way of the guitar-heavy tuneful appeal of the songs – ringing out for decades on classics like "Train In Vain", "London Calling", "Spanish Bombs", "Lost In The Supermarket", "Guns Of Brixton", "Clampdown", and "Rudy Can't Fail".

Great early work from Victor Feldman – recorded in his home territory of the UK, with Vic on vibes and drums, instead of his more familiar piano! There's a wealth of top-shelf players on the record too – key Brit jazzmen from the postwar years, including Dizzy Reece and Jimmy Deuchar on trumpets, Tubby Hayes and Ronnie Scott on tenors, Pete King on baritone, and Derek Humble on alto! Some of the tracks are done with Feldman's quintet, and others are with larger groups – but all the cuts are great examples of the bop fire that was buring in London during the mid and late 50s. Titles include "Wood Work", "Short Circuit", "One Momentum", "Karen", and "Jennie". LP, Vinyl record album

Maynard FergusonBallad Style Of Maynard Ferguson/Alive & Well In London ... CD
Columbia/BGO (UK), 1972. New Copy ... $8.99 19.99
A pair of Columbia classics from trumpeter Maynard Ferguson – back to back on a single CD! First up is an album titled Ballad Style, but there's no sleepy ballads here – thanks to hip backings from British arranger Keith Mansfield – who also worked with Maynard Ferguson on some of his MF Horn sessions! As with other work of the time, Mansfield manages to keep things moving along nicely, even when mellow – and he mixes his own arrangements with orchestrations conducted by Alan Moorehouse that have some of the groovier touches of late 60s Brit Easy – even a very slight hint of a groove at the bottom of some tunes. The music is definitely in a ballad mode, but never as sleepy as you might think – and titles include "Girl Talk", "Born Free", "You Only Live Twice", "Sound Of Silence", "As Long As He Needs Me", and "The Impossible Dream". Alive & Well is equally groovy – funky big band material at its best – with hard-grooving arrangements from Brit talents who include John Cameron, Kenny Wheeler, and Keith Mansfield – all of whom mix together key elements of sound library funk with enough pure jazz to make Maynard sound great throughout. Tunes include some great groovy covers – "Move Over", "Aquarius", "My Sweet Lord", "Your Song", and "Living In The Past" – plus Mansfield's own "The Serpent". CD

Some of the tunes feature a bit of patter on the introductions – showing the Fitzgerald charm that extended way beyond singing – and titles include "The Man I Love", "Everytime We Say Goodbye", "They Can't Take That Away From Me", "You've Got A Friend", "Happy Blues", and "Lemon Drop".

GrapefruitYesterday's Sunshine – The Complete 1967/1968 London Studio Sessions ... CD
RPM (UK), 1967/1968. New Copy ... $14.99 20.99
Incredible pop psych sounds from Grapefruit – a group who might be best known for their early inclusion in the Beatles' Apple Corps – but who can easily stand on their own with the strength of material like this! The production is superb, and the overall vision in the music is sublime – trippy touches, but never too many – and vocals that echo out with both a sense of harmony in the group, and some beautiful larger touches in the studio! The whole thing's got a subtle power that we'd rank right up there with The Zombies, just as they were starting to get great – and the collection finally gets these guys out from the shadows of The Beatles, to show the world how great they were on their own. CD features a number of unissued tracks, and titles taken from tapes and brilliantly remastered – and the set features 20 titles that include "Dead Boot", "Dear Delilah", "Breaking Up A Dream", "Elevator", "Another Game", "Yes", "Ain't It Good", "Sweet Little Miss No Name", "Theme For A Lonely Queen", "Round & Round", "One More Try", "Yesterday's Sunshine", and "Do What You Want To".

Sadik HakimSadik Hakim (London Suite) ... LP
Radio Canada/Return To Analog (Canada), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
One of the greatest moments ever from pianist Sadik Hakim – a player most people know for his contribution to the American bop scene of the late 40s – but an artist who grew even more strongly during his later years in Montreal! This album's a real highlight from that overlooked time in Hakim's career – a set that not only has the musician playing both Fender Rhodes and acoustic piano, but which also highlights his tremendous skill as a writer, too – with a richness that easily rivals the best on the European scene of the time – such as some of our favorite London jazz musicians, or the great work on MPS. Side one features the extended "London Suite" – a work that's poetic, but also pretty darn groovy too – and side two features on shorter compositions that include "Liliane", "Grey Cup Caper", and "Moon In Aquarius" – all carried off beautifully by a group that includes Al Khabyyr Sayyd Abdul on alto and flute, Billy Robinson on tenor, and Peter Leitch on guitar.

Francoise HardyMidnight Blues – Paris/London 1968 to 1972 ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $9.99 18.99
Rare English language recordings from the sublime Francoise Hardy – music that's every bit as wonderful as her famous French recordings – and even more compelling to our Anglo-styled ears! The vocals are wonderful – sung with this sense of darkness that's almost got an echo of Nico at points, given the accent – set to backings that balance this darkness with a bit more light, but never in ways that are overly poppy – and which definitely continue that more sophisticated style that Hardy always brought to her music! There's less "yeh yeh" to the tracks than a few years before – and Francoise is definitely digging deeper music at this point in her career – sometimes with a breathy brilliance that's a bit like Jane Birkin too. Titles include "Bown Bown Bown", "Till The Morning Comes", "Loving You", "In The Sky", "Midnight Blues", "Magic Horse", "Song Of Winter", "Strange Shadows", "Ocean", "The Garden Of Jane Delawney", "Sometimes", "Let My Name Be Sorrow", "Times Passing By", "I Just Want To Be Alone", and "Suzanne".

A brilliant British set from Ram John Holder – not really blues at all, but a cool kind of crossbreeding of styles in the 60s London scene – almost the same mad mix of modes you might hear in The Equals! There's plenty of funk on the record – some great drums, bouncing basslines, and an overall tightness that's more gritty soul than blues – although there's definitely a bluesy bent at times too! Titles include "Brixton Blues", "Too Much Blues", "Pub Crawling Blues", "Wimpy Bar Blues", and "Hampstead To Lose The Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy James & The VagabondsNew Religion/London Swings/This Is Jimmy James & The Vagabonds/Open Up Your Soul (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Pye/BGO (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $8.99 20.99
Four classic albums from this hip British soul group – issued here in a single set, with bonus tracks too! First up is New Religion – a record that was also released in America by Atlantic Records. Although they were a UK soul act, Jimmy James and The Vagabonds were a perfect match for the Atlantic soul stable of the 60s. The group had a smooth group style that was partly uptown, partly northern soul – as clearly illustrated in this album, which is divided up into a "mood red: you feel like leaping" side, and a "mood blue: you feel like digging deeper" side. The band chose some good material that really helps them maintain a solid socking soul sound – including "The Entertainer" and "Ain't Love Good, Ain't Love Proud" by Tony Clarke, "Ain't No Big Thing" and "I'm Just A Fool For You Girl" by Gerald Sims, and "Little Boy Blue" and "People Get Ready" by Curtis Mayfield. Also features "Come To Me Softly", a sweet dreamy ballad by Jimmy, and kind of a bit crossover hit for the boys. London Swings is two-sided monster – as the album was originally split with work from the Alan Bown Set too! Here, the CD features just the live material from the soul group – a smoking performance from Jimmy James & The Vagabonds – one that goes way past the sweetness of their hits, and which has a crowd-pleasing, party-hearty approach to soul that's really great! Jimmy and the group serve up versions of "Sock It To Em JB", "That Driving Beat", "Ain't Too Proud To Beg", "You Don't Know Like I Know", and "Don't Know What I'm Gonna Do". This Is Jimmy James & The Vagabonds is a record that featured some crossover tracks with New Religion – but the set here just features the exclusive cuts – including "I Feel Alright", "I Can't Get Back Home To My Baby", "Never Like This Before", "I Don't Wanna Cry", and "You Showed Me The Way". Open Up Your Soul is a record with a really wonderful sound – the deeply soulful vocals of Jimmy James & The Vagabonds, mixed with rich arrangements handled by Nicky Welsh, and produced to perfection by Brit maestro John Schroeder! The record's got the sophistication of some of the Richard Evans productions over at Chess/Cadet at the same time – and, no surprise, the group lead off with a great cover of The Dells "Wear It On Our Face" – then roll into cuts that include "Cry Like A Baby", "Good Day Sunshine", "Four Walls", "Everybody Loves A Winner", "If You're Gonna Love Me", and "Open Up Your Soul". CD also features 7 more bonus tracks from singles – including "Why", "Bumper To Bumper", "Close The Door", "Give Us A Light", "I Wanna Be your Everything", "Hungry For Love", and "Don't Know What I'm Gonna Do".

The young Roland Kirk at the height of his powers – recording here on the UK scene, long before he added the Rahsaan to his name – and heading up a very cool combo with the legendary Stan Tracey on piano! Stan's presence here is wonderful – as Tracey was in many ways the Thelonious Monk or Herbie Nichols of the London scene – a modernist piano genius whose accompaniment of Roland here is akin to the work of Jaki Byard on some of Kirk's other albums – as the pair move deftly and wonderfully with the mix of imagination and wit that both of them brought to their music! Rhythm accompaniment is wonderful too – deft drums from Ronnie Stephenson and bass from Malcolm Cecil. Kirk blows tenor, stritch, and manzello – sometimes all three at once – and titles include the long tracks "Angelica", "Days Of Wine & Roses", "Close Your Eyes", and "Three For The Festival". CD

Kilmarnock, 1972. Near Mint- ... $11.99 19.99
Galt MacDermot's in definite Hair territory here – working through a "new musical fable" that has plenty of great hippie dippy touches! The play and lyrics are by William Dumaresq, but it's Galt's great music that really makes the whole thing crackle with electricity – played by a different group than on his usual Kilmarnock albums (British players, we think), and in a mode that ranges from jaunty to jazzy, rocking to soulful – all with some heavy message-oriented tunes. Titles include "The Weeds In The Wind", "Hah", "The Saddest Moon", "Mama Don't Want No Baby", "Down By The Ocean", "Oh Fish In The Sea", "Isabel's A Jezebel", "In Another Life", and "Sand".

New Jazz OrchestraWestern Reunion London 1965 ... LP
Decca/Mad About Records (Portugal), 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $37.99 39.99
An amazing debut from a groundbreaking British jazz big band of the 60s – an ensemble led by trumpeter Neil Ardley, and one with a sound that's a lot more modern than some of their contemporaries! The group here definitely earns their "new jazz" name – as it's filled with some of the best up and coming players of the second big wave of modern British jazz – Trevor Watts on alto and flute, Ian Carr and Ardley on trumpets, Paul Rutherford on trombone, and Barbara Thompson on tenor sax – all working in an even larger ensemble with a sharpness and full-on tone that's really amazing! At some level, the group borrows a wide sense of sound and tone from Stan Kenton or Gil Evans – but at another level, they've got much more sharpness and focus – really some of the bolder late 60s styles that were explored heavily by the larger European groups on MPS. Tracks are short, but the solos wail out with tremendous power – and titles include "Milestones", "So What", "Shades Of Blue", "Big P", "Western Reunion", "Maria", and "Django".

Crackling live energy from Buddy Rich – recorded at Ronnie Scott's nightclub in London, and with a sound that recalls some of Buddy's best from the 60s! The group is plenty great – and the attraction here goes way beyond just Buddy's famous work as a leader. As with other Rich albums from the time, the album features some really searing solo work from Pat LaBarbera – clearly the second star of the set, and really bringing a lot to the session on tenor, flute, and soprano sax! Arrangements are by John LaBarbera, Mike Gibbs, and others – all very hip talents who keep things compelling throughout – and titles include "The Word", "Dancing Men", "St Mark's Square", "That's Enough", "Little Train", and "Tim Being". vCD also features 4 bonus tracks – "Moment's Notice", "In A Mellow Tone", "Watson's Walk", and "Milestones".

Mercury, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $13.99 16.99
Some of the most modern material ever presented by the legendary conductor Antal Dorati – heard here at a point when he had shifted from Minneapolis to the London Symphony – but with a sound that's still in the Living Presence tradition that graced his earlier career! The pieces are maybe not as far-out as the "dada" reference implies, but they are some wonderfully inventive orchestral works from a time when a new generation of composers was shaking off some of the more sentimental modes of the previous generation in France. The two longer works here are Satie's "Parade" and "Le Boeuf Sur Le Toit" by Darius Milhaud – bracketed by the shorter "Ouverture" by Georges Auric, and the "Concertino For Piano & Orchestra" by Jean Francaix.

Death Is Not The End, Late 50s. New Copy ... $12.99 18.99
The British scene of the 50s was a hotbed of new musical activity in jazz – partly because of the energy that's always been associated with the city of London and music – but also because new waves of immigration were seeing all sorts of fresh styles coming to the British shores! Both of those modes are definitely in play here – in a stunning showcase of some of the hippest jazz that was bubbling forth in the UK during the postwar years – some with top-shelf soloists who'd go on to achieve even more in the 60s – some with lesser-known players who really shine in the company of the others! Titles include "Wilton's Mood" by Wilton Gaynair, "Hi Ya Mr Jackson" by Tony Hall, "Spiritual Blues" by Joe Harriott, "Nelson's Column" by Eddie Thompson, "it Don't Mean A Thing" by Tony Kinsey with Joe Harriott, "Hootin" by The Jazz Five, "Morning Blue" by Shake Keane, "Egyptian Bint Al Cha Cha" by Ginger Mofolunsho Johnson, and "You Stepped Out Of A Dream" by Don Rendell.

Death Is Not The End, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $12.99 16.99
The city of London was a key center of new jazz activity in the postwar years – partly due to the music's spreading popularity from American sources, but also due to the crumbling colonial structure of the British Empire – which saw residents of other nations arriving in the city, bringing their own musical styles to help create new traditions on the British scene! This well-done set is definitely a great example of that interplay – as much of the music here isn't just British players trying to copy American jazz – but instead all sorts of new directions served up both by natives and newcomers, with some of the best sounds coming in a combination of the two. Titles include "Rhythm" by Wilton Gaynair, "Wail" by Jimmy Deuchar/Victor Feldman Quintet, "Old Devil Moon" by Shake Keane and the Pat Smythe Trio, "Sweet & Lovely" by Dizzy Reece, "Fascinating Rhythm" by Tony Kinsey with Joe Harriott, "Autumn In Cuba" by London Jazz Quartet, "Fidel "by Shake Keane, "Free" by Stan Tracey, "Blues For Those Who Thus Desire" by Tubby Hayes, and "Body & Soul" by Eddie Thompson.

Maybe the deepest-digging volume in this really great series – a set that goes past the obvious to show all the many new styles of modern jazz that were brewing up in the British scene at the end of the 50s! The sounds here aren't just bop, but a nice variety of modern modes that bring as much sophisticated scoring and arrangement to play, as they do focus on inventive instrumentation and phrasing from the players! A few numbers are breathtaking tracks by larger groups, others are small combo material – and titles include "Elegy" by Victor Feldman, "Vertigo" by Steve Race Bop Group, "Regrets" by Shake Keane & Michael Garrick, "Fallonology" by All Star Sextet, "Dance Of The Zombies" by Kenny Graham's Afro-Cubists, "12 By 5" by Tommy Whittle, "Deep Forest" by Dill Jones, and "The Way You Look Tonight" by Wilton Gaynair.

An amazing collection – and one that really helped completely revise our understanding of Caribbean music! The collection features a fair bit of artists with roots in the West Indies, but who made a huge impact on London's postwar immigrant population – the new rise of non-native residents who were swelling the ranks of the city in the years after the way – bringing with them new cultures, new sounds, and new traditions – with all the requisite ideas and politics that might imply! The work here often has a subtle social agenda – working through themes important to these new Londoners, yet still echoing modes of the homeland as well – often with great musical backings that's heavy on percussion, jazzy instrumentation, and very upbeat rhythms. Titles include "London Is The Place For Me" by Lord Kitchener, "I Was There" by Young Tiger, "Some Girl Something" by The Lion, "No Carnival In Britain" by Mighty Terror, "Jamaica Hurricane" by Lord Beginner, "Birth Of Ghana" by Lord Kitchener, "Victory Test Match" by Lord Beginner, "Spanish Calypso" by The Lion, "Bulldog Don't Bite Me" by Timothy, "My Landlady" by Lord Kitchener, "If You're Not White You're Black" by Lord Kitchener, and "Aguiti" by Lord Invader.

VariousLondon Is The Place For Me Vols 5 & 6 – Afro-Cubism, Calypso, Highlife, Mento, & Jazz – The Music Of Young Black London ... CD
Honest Jons (UK), 1950s. Used 2 CDs ... $16.99
London's always been one of the hippest cities in the world – but back during the postwar years, there was an especially wonderful outpouring of music on the scene – a rich array of new sounds and styles pulled from around the globe – as so many residents from crumbling British empire came to live in the UK! Musicians and listeners arrived in London with plenty of cultural baggage on hand – influences from the Caribbean, West Africa, and India too – plus other smaller scenes that once fell under the British banner, all now the fuel for the cultural fire that was happening in England! The title here tells plenty about the music being made in this newly-formed scene – bits of African highlife, Jamaican calypso, American jazz, Cuban Latin, and more – all filtered into the modernism of the 50s, and given a new twist that was decidedly urban as well. The package may well be the most impressive so far in this legendary series – and is certainly the one that moves the farthest past any sort of easy expectations or cultural conventions. Titles include "Women Police In England" by Mighty Terror, "My Sorrow" by West African Swing Stars, "Cricket Umpires" by Lord Kitchener, "Jordhu" by Caribbean Swing Band, "Trumpet Highlife" by Shake Keane, "Calypso Mambo" by George Browne, "Cuban Nightingale" by Buddy Pipp's Highlifers, "Kitch" by The Quavers, "Tabu" by Mona Baptiste, "King Jimmy Foo Foo" by Tejan Sie with The West African Rhythm Brothers, "The Escape" by Dizzy Reece, "Mambo Contempo" by Ginger Johnson, "Life In Britain" by Mighty Terror, "Sway" by Buddy Pipp's Highlifers, "Song Of Joy" by Rupert Nurse's Calypso Band, "Joe Louis Calypso" by Lord Beginner, "Uncle Joe" by Fitzroy Coleman Quintet, "Me Donkey Want Water" by Tony Johnson, "Belly Lick" by Eric Hayden, "Nigeria Odowoyin" by West African Rhythm Brothers, and "Football Calypso" by King Timothy.

VariousLondon Is The Place For Me Vols 7 & 8 – Calypso, Palm Wine, Mento, Joropo, Steel, & Stringband/Lord Kitchener In England 1948 to 1962 ... CD
Honest Jons (UK), 1950s. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99
A great double header from Honest Jons – a 2CD set that brings together volumes 7 and 8 of their London Is The Place For Me series! Volume 7 is first – a fascinating look at musical modes in London during the big years of postwar immigration – a time when former residents of the crumbling British Empire were flooding to London for jobs and a better way of life – often bringing along a huge amount of cultural experience in the process! This set follows wonderfully in the spirit of previous volumes of the series – bringing together a range of different sonic styles that were originally recorded in London as 78rpm singles – where a new wave of Caribbean and West African immigrants were fusing older styles with a newly modern sensibility, and often a fair bit of jazz as well! The set list is wonderful – a great array of well-chosen material – and titles include "Wa Sise" by Willie Payne & The Starlite Tempos, "The Emperor Of Africa" by The Mighty Terror, "Royal Wedding" by The Lion, "Modern Telephone" by Dai Dai Simba, "Sons & Daughters Of Africa" by Lord Beginner, "Caroline" by Trinidad Steel Band, "Ema Foju Ana Woku" by West African Rhythm Brothers, "Kana Kana" by Billy Sholanke, "Boul Ve Se" by Calypso Rhythm Kings, and "My Handy Man" by Marie Bryant. Volume 8 features a huge collection of work from the great Lord Kitchener – maybe one of the most important singers to move the music of the Caribbean to British shores during the postwar years – a time when he was a strong voice to new waves of immigrants arriving in London, and when he was also making a lot of inroads for criss-crossing post-colonial culture too! The base style is calypso, but Kitchener always handles the music with a spirit that's all his own – modern, witty, and urbane – often with some nice currents of jazz in the instrumentation, and plenty of social commentary that made music like this a great precursor to later righteous moments in jazz, funk, soul, and reggae. Titles include "No More Taxi", "Food From The West Indies", "Come Back In The Morning", "Pirates Of Paria", "Drink A Rum", "If You Brown", "Life Begins At Forty", "Mistress Jacob", "Africa My Home", "Kitch In The Jungle", "Tie Tongue Mopsie", and "London Is The Place For Me".

✨✧ Fela & Africa 70Shakara/London Scene ... CD
Barclay/Universal, 1971/1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A real killer of an Afro Funk set – a CD that brings together 2 sparkling moments from Fela's early career! The Shakara album is a longtime classic, and features 2 extended jams – "Lady" and "Shakara" – that are both tight straight-ahead funky groovers with a nice nice sound. London Scene has a number of shorter tracks – like "Buy Africa", "Who're You", and "Fight To Finish" – that Fela recorded in London during his brief attempt to storm that city's recording scene. The tracks have a slightly different sound than usual, and feature some nice tight arrangements. 7 tracks in all! CD

✨✧ HousemartinsLondon 0 Hull 4 ... CD
Elektra, 1986. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A jangle pop masterpiece from The Housemartins – a melodic mid 80s effort that still sounds incredible, and a record that's the very definition of deceptive simplicity in indie pop – with layers and layers of depth underneath the charismatic lead vocals, choruses, chiming guitars & rhythm! There's both spiritual and political resonance in these songs the might have flown right over our heads as kids, but then and now, it still works magically as effervescent pop. To put it simply, this belongs in the 80s indie pantheon with the Smiths and other top shelf groups of the time. Fantastic! Titles include "Happy Hour", "Get Up Off Our Knees", "Flag Day", "Anxious", "Reverends Revenge", "Sitting On A Fence", "Sheep", "Over There", "We're Not Deep", "Lean On Me" and "Freedom". CD

✨✧ Jackie MittooJackie Mittoo In London ... CD
Coxsone, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Laidback organ grooves recorded by Jackie in London (in case you couldn't guess by the title!) – mostly mellow, and mostly covers of late 60s pop tunes. Still, there's a pretty great rocksteady vibe to most of the tunes – slowly bouncing along at a head-nodding pace, which is probably the way Jackie played them on the organ! Titles include "Ram Jam", "Soul Finger", "How Soon", "Who Done It", "Massachusetts", and "Kicksie". CD
