✨✧ Love UnlimitedLove Unlimited – The Uni, MCA, & 20th Century Records Singles 1972 to 1975 ... CD
Universal, Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic selection of work from one of the hippest girl groups of the 70s – the mighty Love Unlimited trio, three singers who all worked under the genius of Barry White in his prime! Unlike other girl trios of the time, who often used an older soul mode refitted with disco grooves – sometimes acting more like a chorus than a lead act – Love Unlimited always brought their full vocal strengths to play, and do a fantastic job here working in modes that rival some of the best male harmony groups of the early 70s – especially the sweet soul groups from New Jersey, New York, and Philly. And yes, Barry does kick up the groove a bit at times, but even then things are usually more in a midtempo mode, not a disco one – which makes for tremendous sounds throughout. This is the first-ever proper collection of the girls' singles from the early 70s – and titles include "Oh Love Well We Finally Made It", "Fragile Handle With Care", "Are You Sure", "I Should Have Known", "Is It Really True Boy Is It Me", "Walkin In The Rain With The One I Love", "Under The Influence Of Love", "It May Be Winter Outside", "I Love You So Never Gonna Let You Go", "I Belong To You", "So Nice To Hear", "People Of Tomorrow Are The Children Of Today", and "Share A Little Love In Your Heart".

Chuck BerryLondon Sessions ... CD
Chess/MCA, 1972. Used ... $5.99
Chuck Berry makes the same London move as some of his other Chess Records contemporaries – and the result is one of Chuck's best albums from the later years! The set's not as star-studded as other efforts of this nature – but that's fine with us because Chuck really shines as the lead star out front, on both vocals and guitar – getting some great gritty backing from players who include Derek Griffiths and Owen McIntyre on guitar, Ian McLagen and Dave Kaffinetti on piano, and Rick Gretsch on bass. The set features a mix of London studio recordings and a few live tracks – and titles include "I Will Not Let You Go", "London Berry Blues", "Let's Boogie", "Mean Old World", "Johnny B Goode", and "I Love You".

BlackaliciousBlazing Arrow ... CD
MCA, 2002. Used ... $1.99
The first major label release by the Gift of Gab and Chief Excel finds the duo expanding outward and experimenting with their signature sound, bringing in a host of guests including Quannum mainmasts Lyrics Born, Lateef, and Joyo, as well as Dilated People's Raka and Babu, J5's Cut Chemist and Chali 2na, Saul Williams, Gil Scott-Heron, Ben Harper, and more, plus guest production by ?uestlove and Hi-Tek. There are some definite gems on here, with plenty of soulful female vocals, but don't expect a Nia part 2. This is a lot different, with a little more songcraft sensibility and at the same time bumps like Blackalicious project should. Cuts include the eerie "Blazing Arrow", "4000 Miles" with Chali 2na and Lateef, the instant classic single "Make You Feel That Way", the fist pumpin "Paragraph President", and many more. 17 in all.

Bobby Blue BlandTwo Steps From The Blues (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Duke/MCA, Early 60s. Used ... $4.99
An incredible record from Bobby Blue Bland – and quite possibly the greatest one he ever made! The set's got an amazing something special that's unlike most other material of the time – a bit blues, but a lot of soul too – still with some echoes of R&B in the jazzier charts used for the backdrop, but presented with a rock-solid style that definitely points the way towards many sounds and styles to come in the 60s. And although Bland recorded many of these tracks as separate singles, there's a way they're put together here that makes the whole thing sound completely marvelous together – a really well-conceived track list that shows that Bobby's an even greater artist in the space of a full record. The arrangements are perfect, and Bobby's rough soulful voice is blended in this amazing way with killer horn arrangements that are far more sophisticated than most stuff that ever came after this, and which never get in the way, but only back up his deep emotion. The album's a motherlode of classics by the man, with gems that include "Two Steps From The Blues", "Cry Cry Cry", "I Don't Want No Woman", "I'm Not Ashamed", "Don't Cry No More", "Lead Me On", and "I Pity The Fool". And hell, even his version of "St James Infirmary" is pretty wonderful – something we never thought we'd say about that song. CD

Impulse/MCA, 1963. Used ... $4.99
Brilliant work – John Coltrane really opening up in his new spiritual mode of the 60s, hinting at the changes to come, while still keeping the modal groove of previous recordings! The record features tracks from a few different sessions from the years 1961 to 1963, but it holds together beautifully – thanks to a unified creative spirit in the music! The centerpiece of the album is the stunning track "Impressions" – performed by the quartet with McCoy Tyner, Jimmy Garrison, and Elvin Jones – but all tracks are great, and titles include "After the Rain", and "Up 'Gainst The Wall" – plus the brilliant cut "India", which features guest work by Eric Dolphy on bass clarinet!

A classic live set from Bill Cosby – recorded at Harrah's Hotel in Reno, Nevada – back in 1973, when he was still pretty darn hip! As you'd guess from the title and cover, the emphasis here is on stories and bits involving Fat Albert – the Cosby creation that was then playing big time in cartoon format on Saturday morning TV! The routines are actually a heck of a lot better than the cartoon – and titles include "Fat Albert's Car", "Fat Albert Plays Dead", "Fat Albert Got A Hernia", "My Wife & Kids", "My Dad's Car", "My Brother, Russell", and "Fernet Branca".

The sound is certainly slicker than before, but in a way that's actually pretty darn nice – as Joe Sample, Wilton Felder, Stix Hooper, and Larry Carlton come together with effortless ease – dipping, turning, twisting, and still hitting a nice groove on the best tunes. Tracks include "Nite Crawler", "Feel It", "River Rat", "Free As The Wind", and "Sweet N Sour". LP, Vinyl record album

One of our favorite albums ever from The Crusaders – a set that really sums up all the tightness they'd forged in the 70s, while still showing a new sense of soul and funk as well – expertly balanced with flawless LA production! The album may well be the group's equivalent of a Steely Dan album – no surprise, given the work they'd done on sessions for that group – and the title cut is the massive extended version of "Street Life", with killer vocals from Randy Crawford – and other titles include "My Lady", "Night Faces", "The Hustler", and "Rodeo Drive".

✨✧ DeodatoWhirlwinds/Artistry ... CD
MCA/BGO (UK), 1974. New Copy ... $8.99 14.99
Two post-CTI gems from Deodato – back to back on a single CD! Whirlwinds is sweet keyboard soul from Deodato – a set that steps off nicely from the strengths of his big hits on CTI, hitting a similarly flowing groove that's really great! The instrumentation here is a bit more expanded than before, but never in a way that buries the keyboards – and Deodato's right out front on a range of electric keys that get some great support from John Tropea's finely-honed work on guitar! Titles include "Havana Strut", "Whirlwinds", "West 42nd Street", and a nice cover of Steely Dan's "Do It Again". And heck, even the album's version of Glen Miller's "Moonlight Serenade" manages to come off like a funk tune! Artistry is a live set from Deodato – but one that's very much in the mode of his best CTI studio sessions – with soaring, over the top keyboard work that's totally great – backed by some tightly compressed guitar, bass, and drums, with just enough funk in the mix to keep things interesting! As with other Deodato records from the time, there's a mix of moods here that comes together nicely – a range that goes past his easy hits, and shows Deodato to be one of the hippest, most soulful keyboard talents of his generation. Titles include a great version of "Super Strut" that grooves for over 8 minutes, and which has some firey guitar that really competes with Deodato's work on the keys – and other tracks include "Farewell To A Friend", "Pavane For A Dead Princess", "Rio Sangre", and "Jivin".

Impulse/MCA, 1962. Used ... $4.99
A seminal meeting of the old and new generations of jazz in the 60s – put together in perfect Impulse fashion! At some level, this is actually an early 60s John Coltrane Quartet album – with Duke Ellington sitting in for McCoy Tyner on piano, as that's the lineup on about half of the album – tracks that feature Coltrane on tenor, Elvin Jones on drums, and Jimmy Garrison on bass, all working with Ellington on the keys. On other titles, though, the album features Coltrane playing with a Duke-ish trio that has Aaron Bell on bass and Sam Woodyard on drums – slightly less modern, but with a nice sense of depth throughout! Overall, the the record does a great job of balancing between the best talents of both players – and titles include "Big Nick", "The Feeling Of Jazz", "Take The Coltrane", and "My Little Brown Book".

Fela & Africa 70VIP/Authority Stealing ... CD
Barclay/MCA, 1979/1980. Used ... $6.99
Two albums on one CD – and they both have killer long tracks that are released here in their entirey, without the cutting up that you'd get if they were split out over both sides of an album. "V.I.P." stands for "Vagabonds In Power", and the track was recorded live by Fela before a very enthusiastic audience in Berlin. It's great to hear him working in this live setting, and the track starts with a nice spoken introduction before leaping into a guitar-based groove. "Authority Stealing" is another long one, with the band's usual vamping and off-kilter horn section, and some amazing spacey electric piano solos that sound as if they might have been laid down by Sun Ra! Remastered, and very nicely packaged! CD

Stix HooperWorld Within ... LP
MCA, 1979. Very Good Gatefold ... $1.99
A classic Crusaders side-project from the end of the 70s – featuring Stix on drums and percussion, plus lots of sweet keyboards from Joe Sample! The set features plenty of great guest work too – with west coast fusion luminaries that include Bobby Hutcherson, Alphonson Johnson, Todd Cochrane, and Roland Bautista joining in from time to time. Production is by the whole Crusaders team, and the album's got a smooth jazzy groove throughout. Features a nice remake of "Little Drummer Boy", plus "Brazos River Breakdown", "African Spirit", "Rum Or Tequila", "Passion", and "Jasmine Breeze". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Thelma HoustonQualifying Heat ... LP
MCA, 1984. Near Mint- ... $3.99
Although Thelma's best known for her grooves from earlier years, she still sounds plenty darn great on this sweet set from the mid 80s – a bouncy, buoyant batch of tunes that updates the rhythms a bit, but still serves up plenty of her classic-styled vocals! Backings are heavy on beats and keys, and with production by Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, Monte Moir, Glen Ballard, and Dennis Lambert, there's a definite electro pop sensibility bubbling through many of the tunes – a style that's often forceful, even when subtle – slightly stiff on the rhythms, but in ways that make Thelma's warm vocals sound even more powerful. Titles include "I Guess It Must Be Love", "Fantasy & Heartbreak", "I'd Rather Spend The Bad Times With You", "Shake You", "Generate Love", and "Love Is A Dangerous Game". LP, Vinyl record album

Howlin WolfLive & Cookin At Alice's Revisited (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Chess/MCA (Japan), 1972. Used ... $14.99
Down homey early 70s blues from Howlin Wolf – not as funky as some of the other blues albums on Chess at the time, but with a nice rough and ready edge. Instrumentation includes a few guitars, tenor sax, piano, and bass – and Wolf himself plays a bit of harmonica – and the overall feel is very much in keeping with the kind of small club electric sets you might have caught on the south side of Chicago at the time. Titles include "Just Passing By", "I Didn't Know", "Mean Mistreater", "Call Me The Wolf", "Don't Laugh At Me" and "When I Laid Down I Was Troubled". This CD edition includes 2 longish bonus tracks: "The Big House" and "Mr. Airplane Man", both of which run north of the 7 minute mark. CD

Howlin WolfLondon Sessions – Deluxe Edition ... CD
Chess/MCA, 1970. Used 2 CDs ... $11.99
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", "Little Red Rooster", "Built For Comfort", "What A Woman", "Highway", "Who's Been Talking", and "Rocking Daddy". CD

Argo/MCA, 1958. Used ... $4.99
The tune "Poinciana" must have been written by Jamal – as the lyrical flowing style of the song is perfect for his deeply soulful piano style. It wasn't, though – although this recording of the tune has made it one of the biggest in Jamal's book from the time, a perpetual favorite that's a great example of his rich talents. The album also features a great version of "Autumn Leaves" that stretches for over 7 minutes – one of Jamal's first extended tunes on record – plus the cuts "Ivy", "Tater Pie", and "A Gal In Calico".

Rodney JonesWhen You Feel The Love ... CD
Impulse/MCA, 1981. Used ... $11.99
A different album than some of guitarist Rodney Jones' more spiritual work – maybe a bit more spacious and sensitive overall, in a style that shows off a whole new side of his sound! Rodney plays both 6 and 12 string guitars – and the session features a fair bit of keyboards from Kenny Kirkland – often used in these laidback ways that glide along with the breezy style of the guitar. The rest of the group features Fred Lipsius on some reeds, Marcus Miller on bass, Buddy Williams on drums, and Rick Cutler on percussion – all coming together in a warmly soulful groove on titles that include "The Gift", "Gaze", "Just Because", "The Joy Of Now", "Another Bag", and "Song For Jan".

Lonnie JordanDifferent Moods Of Me ... LP
MCA, 1978. Sealed Gatefold ... $6.99
A pretty sweet little solo album by Lonnie Jordan – a key War member during the group's biggest fame. The album lives up to its title, and serves up a number of different musical styles, all with Lonnie on keyboards and vocals – but the best work is the stuff that's still in the War-type groove, those cuts that have a Latiny funk groove, like "Junkie To My Music" and "Nasty", both of which are pretty tasty numbers with a heavy Chicano groove. "Junkie" is especially great – as it's got some very cool keybord soloing over a heavy conga groove, in kind of a nice stoner funk way. Other tracks include "Jungle Dancin", "Grey Rainy Days", and "He Used To Be A Friend Of Mine". LP, Vinyl record album

MCA, Mid 40s/Mid 50s/1975. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $4.99
A great collection of Jordan's material from the mid 40s to the mid 50s – starting with his jazzy numbers of the earlier years, and moving into the more blues/rock 'n roll sound of later recordings. His band always sounds great and it also sounds like they're having a good time especially when they participate in the dialogue of the songs. There are a total of 20 songs and they include "Choo Choo Ch'Boogie", "Saturday Night Fish Fry", "Barnyard Boogie", "I Want You To Be My Baby", "Caldonia", "Run Joe", "School Days", "Buzz Me", "Beans & Corn Bread" and "Don't Let The Sun Catch You Cryin".

✨✧ BB KingTo Know You Is To Love You ... LP
ABC/MCA, 1973. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A set that has BB King teaming up with southern soul maestro Dave Crawford – an arranger/producer who helps BB find a whole new groove! Crawford's approach is wonderfully warm and soulful – almost a Hi Records sort of take on the music, which brings King's traditional blues into much fresher territory – an update of older Memphis modes, with a really great sound for the 70s. In addition to The Memphis Horns, there's also a bit of Philly help on the record too – thanks to Vince Montana's vibes, Norman Harris' guitar, Ron Kersey's keyboards, and Ronnie Baker's bass. Stevie Wonder makes a brief guest appearance on keyboards too – and titles include "Oh To Me", "Love", "Respect Yourself", "I Like To Live The Love", "Who Are You", "I Can't Leave", and "Thank You For Loving The Blues".

John KlemmerBarefoot Ballet ... LP
MCA, 1976. Very Good+ ... $0.99
A great summation of the sound that John Klemmer created during his early 70s years at Impulse – served up here with a slightly warmer, slightly mellower feel for a great date on ABC! Klemmer's still playing here with a wonderful sense of tone – an approach to reeds that's nicely sharp, even at mellower moments – a depth on tenor that shows some of the best advances in jazz at the end of the 60s, yet which is delivered here with a slightly more subtle feel – a bit like some of the best Gato Barbieri work at the time. Other players on the date include Dave Grusin on electric piano, Larry Carlton on guitar, and Bernie Fischer on flutes – all of whom are nice and restrained, and a lot more laidback than the usual smooth fusion album of the period. Klemmer's clearly still interested in keeping things soulful – blowing with a warm glow and nice sense of flow throughout – on a set of mostly original titles that include "Poem Painter", "Barefoot Ballet", "Forest Child", "Talking Hands", "Rain Dancer", and "Naked".

Many of the numbers here are heavy on Walter's classic harmonica style, but they also feature plenty of rough-edged vocals with a nicely soulful approach. Instrumentation is mostly small combo – with Otis Spann on piano, Freddie Robinson and Leonard Caston on guitars, and Willie Dixon on bass – among a variety of other players on the different sessions. Titles include "Hate To See You Go", "Key To The Highway", "Blue & Lonesome", "I Had My Fun", "I Got To Find My Baby", "Nobody But You", "Take Me Back", and "Roller Coaster". CD

Lost Gonzo BandLost Gonzo Band ... LP
MCA, 1975. Very Good ... $1.99
Understated genius from the Lost Gonzo Band – one of those 70s bands who could draw on country, but never be country rock – act like they were casual, but had the tightness of much bigger acts – and always come across with the goods, but in a way that never tried to call too much attention to itself! This set's that great kind of filtering together of so many different elements that bands in the Gonzo's generation – cool kids that really knew what was what, and how to lay it out – and who must have been totally stunned when punk came along and shoved records like this to the margins. And sure, they were never Little Feat or The Band, but they also weren't that far off either – as you'll hear on tracks that include "People Will Dance", "Railroad Man", "Desperadoes", "Loose & On My Way", and "Fool For A Tender Touch".
