Mississippi John Hurt1928 Sessions (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Yazoo, 1928. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99
Vintage work from Mississippi John Hurt, but somehow amazingly clear and crisp in this classic LP presentation! The tunes are wonderfully earthy – just vocals and guitar from Hurt, in a style that's definitely blues, but which has some surprisingly jazzy inflections at times – at least from the perspective of older-style jazz. Titles include "Candy Man Blues", "Spike Driver Blues", "Big Leg Blues", "Ain't No Tellin", "Frankie", "Nobody's Dirty Business", and "Louis Collins". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Mississippi John HurtWorried Blues (180 gram pressing – with download) ... LP
Fat Possum, 1964. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Rare recordings of delta blues legend Mississippi John Hurt – captured solo and beautifully well on 3 dates in late 1964, recorded by Gene Rosenthal – with Hurt's distinctive way of a somehow gentle melodic acoustic blues guitar sound, coming from hard-strummed and plucked strings as unvarnished and amazing as can be – and a way with vocals that's just as unique and wonderful! It's got the intimacy of the best field recordings, but the sound quality and John's voice and guitar are in such fine form here, it feels "big" despite being as raw and real as can be. Includes "Slidin' Delta", "Louis Collins", "Staggerlee", "Monday Mornin' Blues", "Comin' Home", "Make Me A Pallet On Your Floor", "You Can't Come In", "Joe Turner", "Lonesome Am I", "Trouble Blues", "Nobody's Dirty Business", "Lovin' Spoonful", "Worried Blues" and "Avalon Blues".

✨✧ Mississippi HeatWarning Shot ... CD
Delmark, 2014. Used ... Out Of Stock
Mississippi Heat, but in a very strong Chicago blues mode – one that's fleshed out with a lineup that also includes tenor, organ, and backing vocals too! The group's led by harmonica player Pierre Lacocque, but features strong lead vocals from Inetta Visor – who's got that older southern soul blend of R&B and blues – a bit like older work on the Malaco label, but even more rootsy here – and produced in a less-commercial mode with the nice Delmark touch. The guitar work is great too – with a few searing leads in just the right places – and the album's got a whopping 15 tracks in all with titles that include "Come To Mama", "Sweet Poison", "Warning Shot", "Swingy Dingy Man", "Evaporated Blues", "Recession Blues", "A Part Of Something Special", "What Cha Say", and "Working Man".

✨✧ Mississippi Fred McDowellI Do Not Play No Rock N Roll ... LP
Capitol, 1970. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
An incredible record from Mississippi Fred McDowell – a set that was issued on a big label, but which has a wonderfully rootsy feel throughout – in a way that almost out-does any work from the indie blues labels of the time! The package was put together by Tommy Couch as an early Malaco production – but it's even more stripped-down than later blues work from those studios – as it features mostly just Fred on vocals and guitar, introducing himself and his music – then working through these incredible inflections on electric guitar, which are as far from the rockish sound of all the crossover blues that McDowell promises he won't provide in the title! Really timeless stuff, brilliantly recorded – with cuts that include "Red Cross Store", "61 Highway", "Jesus Is On The Mainline", "Kokomo Me Baby", and "Good Morning Little School Girl".

✨✧ BB KingIndianola Mississippi Seeds ... LP
ABC, 1970. Very Good Gatefold ... $19.99
BB King hips up his groove a bit here – picking up some of the crossover soul and rock touches used by contemporaries over at Chess/Cadet, and expanding his sound with a range of guests that include Leon Russell, Joe Walsh, and Carole King! Despite the presence of these bigger names, the set's very much in BB's own spirit – mostly focused on his vocals and guitar work, and still mostly including original compositions. A few tunes get nice and funky on the rhythms, although still very much in a blues-based way – and Jimmie Haskell contributes a few larger arrangements from time to time. Titles include "King's Special", "Until I'm Dead & Cold", "You're Still My Woman", "Hummingbird", "Go Underground", and "Chains & Things". LP, Vinyl record album

Blues from the delta, beautifully compiled by the folks at Yazoo – in a classic collection that shows why they've always been one of the most trusted sources for music like this! The package really expands strongly on the sounds of Charlie Patton and Robert Johnson – both of whom are included, but featured with a host of contemporaries who really show the whole spectrum of this fertile scene during these crucial years. Titles include "Special Rider Blues" by Skip James, "Billy Goat Blues" by John Byrd, "Tallahatchie River Blues" by Mattie Delaney, "Delta Blues" by Son House, "Dead Shrimp Blues" by Robert Johnson, "Gang Of Brownskin Women" by Harvey Hull, and "Be True Be True Blues" by Henry Sims.

Atlantic, 1972. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
After dipping into the Memphis Underground, Herbie continues his tour of the funky south – recording here at American Studios in Memphis (only 5 miles from Mississippi, we guess!), with a small combo that includes Bobby Emmons on organ, Bobby Wood on electric piano, and Reggie Young on guitar! There's a relaxed easy groove to the album that makes it one of Mann's most consistently satisfying funky albums – a really cool, laidback style that's a great showcase for Herbie's funky flute – and David Newman turns out some great solos on tenor and flute, which really soup the record up! Tracks are long, and titles include "Dippermouth", "Mississippi Gambler", "Respect Yourself", and "Satisfaction". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Isabelle ArmandLevon & Kennedy – Mississippi Innocence Project (hardcover) ... Book
Powerhouse Books, 2018. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A book that brings a surprising amount of beauty to a scene that's equally troubling – as the two main subjects pictured on the cover are both Mississippi men convicted of a crime they did not commit – exonerated as part of the Mississippi Innocence Project, and photographed by Isabelle Armand in their hometowns, alongside their families. The book is bracketed with details on Kennedy Brewer, Levon Brooks, and their wrongful conviction – but the core features these beautiful photographs of their surroundings in rural Mississippi, all shot in black and white – as portraits of members of their extended families are interspersed with landscapes and street shots – all as a testament to the subtle beauty of the world that treated these two men so wrong. At one level, the book is a great entry in the longer innocence projects that have developed over the past few decades – but at another, it's simply some great southern photography, seen by a very keen eye. Book is hardcover, 109 pages, and filled with black and white images. Book

Daptone, 2008. Used ... Out Of Stock
The most directly soul shaking album yet from Daptone Records – acapella gospel soul recorded live at Mt Mariah Church in Como, Mississippi – rootsy beauty sung by Mary Moore, The John Edwards Singers, Brother And Sister Walker, Como Mamas, Irene Stevenson and others! In a way, Como Now is the first foray into field recording by funk & soul saviors Daptone – but honest, truthful heart and soul has always been the order of the day for Daptone's house superstar Sharon Jones – it may be the first gospel album on the label, but the project is not really as huge a leap as you might think. In any case, it's perfectly free of the academic conceits that bog down so many stuffy collections of the ilk – and the presentation is simply beautiful – glorious harmonies, stirringly emotional and celebratory lead vocals, unadorned and in no need of accompaniment! Titles include "When The Gates Swing Open" "Somebody Needs You Lord" and more by Mary Moore, "It's Alright" and "New Burial Ground" by The John Edwards Singers", "God's Unchanging Hand" by Como Mamas feat Mary Moore, "Talk With Jesus" by The Jones Sisters and much more.

Late 80s garage-psych-punk from Dead Moon – their first album ever and a record that fuses decades of trashy rock into a unique frenzy that's beloved to the privileged and relative few who know it and love it! It's important to consider what underground music sounded like in the late 80s in general to fully appreciate the prescience of Dead Moon and the past history of the players – who are more akin the late 60s TX psych than most things bubbling under the surface in the 80s. Includes "Graveyard", "Out On A Wire", "Where Did I Go Wrong", "I Hate The Blues", "Don't Burn The Fires" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Roscoe HolcombOld Church ... LP
Mississippi, 1972. New Copy ... $13.99 15.99
Appalachian music great Roscoe Holcomb is best known for his Folkways recordings of the early 60s – but he sounds equally wonderful here in a rare performance recorded at a church in Portland in 1972! There's a stark, moody feel to the music – summed up perfectly in the photo on the cover, and billed by Folkways as the "high lonesome sound" – as Roscoe plays these hypnotic lines on banjo that are often filled with these cyclical passages that weave a dark musical tapestry, while his vocals reach for redemption with these qualities that are completely haunting. The set features two very long tracks – "Rocky Mountain" and "The Village Churchyard" – next to shorter cuts that include "East Virginia Blues", "Swanno Mountain", "Single Girl", and "Black Eyed Snake".

The Hurley machine keeps heaving forward – stepping out here in a set of contemporary recordings, but with sounds that are as timeless as anything else we've heard from him before! The album begins with a haunting number that features just vocals and electric piano – but played in ways that are almost like hammered dulcimer – and two more cuts feature wonderfully spooky pump organ, pulsating in ways that make the music sound even moodier than ever. Other tracks feature acoustic guitar, but still mighty nice, with all the Hurley charm in the vocals – and titles include "The Corridor", "In The Morning", "Tea", "Meara O'Reilly", and "Shockoe Bottom".

Abner JayFolk Song Stylist ... LP
Mississippi, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $15.99
A great overview of the work of Abner Jay – as much of a blues singer as the folk artist promised on the cover – working here in a stunning array of styles, pulled from a variety of recordings he made in the late 60s and early 70s! It's clear that Jay is one of those talents who was rising up during the initial folk revival years, but was also able to find a groove that was very much his own when that moment faded – and the tunes here feature some very unusual phrasing on vocals, supported by acoustic guitar and a bit of percussion – on titles that include "Depression", "Lord Randal", "I Wanna Job", "St James Infirmary", "I'm Georgia Bound", "Bring It With You When You Come", "The Thresher", "Cotton Fields", "Starving To Death On My Government Claim", "Shenandoah", "99 Years In Jail", and "Swing Low Sweet Chariot".

George MukabiFuraha Wenye Gita – Happiness With Guitar ... LP
Mississippi, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $16.99 17.99
George Muakbi's definitely got some happiness in his guitar here – a bright, lively style that dances along with the spare rhythms of the tunes – in a groove that's beautifully offset by the vocals of George and his partner! The music is relatively spare, but ushered in a new stylistic generation in Mukabi's native Kenya – and after all these years, there's a timeless quality to these tunes that really holds up. The main focus is often on George's deft work on acoustic guitar – notes that spin out strongly, and cascade in a mix of melody and rhythm – sometimes with just a slight bit of percussion in the background, and vocals traded back and forth in a nicely sing-song way. Titles include "Festo Amahaya", "Sengula Nakupenda", "Tom Itabale", "Jared Onyango", "Fuhara Wenye Gita", and "Bibi Mzuri Nyumbani". LP, Vinyl record album

John OndoloHypnotic Guitar Of John Ondolo ... LP
Mississippi, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $17.99 20.98
The title here is certainly well-put, as the guitar of John Ondolo is every bit as hypnotic as any of the more adventurous musicians we've loved over the years – and that would include the work of artists like Sandy Bull or Peter Walker! As with both of them, Ondolo has a way of using unusual tunings and phrasing to make the music all his own – familiar at some level, in that he recorded these singles in Kenya, in modes that were still somewhat within the norms – but with a way of handling his instrument that's completely his own, and which makes these tunes completely mesmerizing throughout! Most numbers have vocals and some slight other added instrumentation, but it's always the guitar lines that seem to ring out the strongest – on titles that include "Siri Ya Vijana", "Olalekanga", "Kenya Twist", "Ukiwa Na Bwana Bibi", "Tumshukuru Mungu", "Tucheze Selele", "Kwela Wangu", and "Safari Ya Kilimanjaro".

Clara RockmoreClara Rockmore's Lost Theremin Album ... LP
Bridge/Mississippi, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
Many folks have handled the theremin over the years – the strange instrument pictured on the cover – but few have ever handled it with the skill and instrumental virtuosity as the great Clara Rockmore! This set was recorded in the 70s, but has an instantly classic sort of vibe – as Rockmore works alongside pianist Nadia Reisenberg, to transform the use of the instrument greatly – moving past the more sound-effects mode that the theremin was usually reduced to, and taking it into strongly note-based territory on a variety of themes from much older sources! Most tracks are duo numbers – done like piano/violin sonatas, with a really beautiful sound – and a few more feature a larger ensemble, which only makes things even more amazing. Titles include "Adagio", "Water Boy", "Air", "Bachianas Brasilieras No 5", "Pastorale", and "Summertime". LP, Vinyl record album

This set brings together a range of different singles that SE recorded and issued on his own Rogie label, mostly during the 60s – wonderfully groovy tracks that often just feature vocals and guitar, the latter of which does a tremendous job of moving between rhythm and solo moments! A few cuts add in additional instrumentation, but never too much – and titles include "Long Live Our Woman Mayor", "Are Sorry For You", "Not When I'm In Town", "Waitin Make You Do Me So", "Nor Look Me Lek Dat", and "Kpindigbi".

Mississippi, Late 40s/1950s. New Copy ... $13.99 15.99
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.

The package is as before – 2 LPs in a great cover, complete with a heavy booklet of notes and photos – all to support a selection of cuts that runs strongly towards the deep soul side of the spectrum, with bits of New Orleans soul here and there – and occasional currents of funk!

Mississippi, Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A groundbreaking album of theremin music – recorded at a time when many people had forgotten about the instrument a bit, but at a level that takes the electronic force to a whole new level! The theremin first rose to fame on 50s sci fi soundtracks and weird mood music records – and although it had gotten use on rock albums during the psychedelic years, it never got the proper treatment it deserved until this groundbreaking set from theremin wizard Clara Rockmore! Rockmore plays the instrument here alongside piano from Nadia Reisenberg – really stripping away sci fi futurist stereotype of the theremin, as she takes on work from serious composers, plus other sources too – using the instrument with a sense of drama, and the virtuosic control of a master instrumentalist – on titles that include "Vocalise", "Song Of Grusia", "The Swan", and "Chant Du Memestrel".

The package collects together vintage 78rpm rebetika recordings made by Markos in the mid 30s – almost all of them just featuring his instrument and vocals, at a level that's not too far from rural blues recordings made at the same time – definitely driven with a similar spirit of melancholy as well, even though the sound and style is different. Titles and lyrics are in Greek – but tunes translate as "In The Dark Last Night", "Hash Smoking Mortissa", "The Spinner", "My Woman's Jealous", "Your Arabian Eyes", and "Bitch You Made Me Waste Away".

At times, there's a bit of a Dollar Brand vibe in Xaba's piano – long lines, with a really compelling pulse – but other times, the music opens up with the kind of searching freedoms you'd hear on the AACM scene of the time – mixing together righteous styles with inventive musical expression! The great Plunky – of Oneness Of Juju fame – is in the group on tenor, soprano sax, and flute – and the record also features Black Fire labelmate Lon Moshe on vibes and percussion, plus additional percussion, bass, and drums.

The music certainly falls into the garagey sounds of the Sunset Strip scene at the time – but there's also a quality here that really sets these guys apart – this stark, bracing vibe that's hinted at in some of the really bleak song titles of their tunes, and which comes through strongly in the mix of offbeat vocalizations, unusual guitar tunings, and really raw production throughout! Tracks include "Reading Your Will", "Love At Psychedelic Velocity", "Every Night", "Cam Me Down", "Sweet Child Of Nothingness", "I Told Her", "Return Nevermore", "Judgement Of Rejection", "I Don't Need Nobody", "Room Of Shadows", "Who Is Burning", and "Outside Of It All".

Soul singer Ruby Johnson never recorded a full album back in the day – and this set nicely corrects that fact, by bringing together some of her rare singles as a wonderful ten track album! Ruby's got a richness that's in the best southern soul mode of the time – a voice that would fit easily right next to the best Chess material by Etta James, but occasionally giving a slight uptown pitch in the backings – maybe a bit like Maxine Brown at moments too! Yet whatever the case, Johnson's a wonderfully expressive singer – and really knocks it out of the park on this set of heartbreaking gems – titles that include "No No No", "If I Ever Needed Love", "It's Not That Easy", "I'll Run Your Heart Away", "Let Me Apologize", "I'd Better Check Myself", "Come To Me My Darling", and "How Strong Is My Love".

A beautiful set of work that shows the more intimate side of composer Arvo Part – not his larger projects or vocal material – but instead a series of contemplative sonatas that feature piano, violin, or cello – or some combination of both! The performances here are handled by Alexi Lubimov, Vadim Gluzman, Jurgen Krus, Angela Yoffe, and Sebastian Klinger – and the recording quality is great – with a nice sense of room that makes some of the notes echo out in space and really increase the melancholy element in the music, especially on some of the piano passages. Titles include "Speigel Im Spiegel", "Fur Alina", "Fratres", and "Variationen Zur Gesundung Von Arinushka". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ SE RogieSounds Of SE Rogie ... LP
Mississippi/Domino Sound, 1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Seminal sounds from SE Rogie – one of the most important palm wine artists to emerge from Sierra Leone in the 60s! Rogie sings in this wonderfully fluid style alongside his well-plucked guitar – which rings out with these bright tones that really illuminate the lyrics, but also sometimes have a darker, more folkloric quality! Additional instrumentation on the tunes is relatively spare – often just a bit of percussion, bass, or other rhythmic element used in moderation – and titles include "Advice To Schoolgirls", "Easy Baby", "Man Stupid Being", "Baby Lef Marah", "She Caught Me Red Hot", "Twist With The Morningstars", and "Please Go Easy With Me".

✨✧ Celestine Ukwu & His Philosophers NationalNo Condition Is Permanent ... LP
Mississippi, Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Seminal sounds from the Nigerian scene at the start of the 70s – music from the key figure of Celestine Ukwu, an artist who helped to reinvigorate the highlife style of years past, and pave the way for Afro Funk changes in years to come! Celestine's sound is nice and lean here – very rhythmic, with the guitar wrapped around the percussion and basslines in beautifully snakey action – while the vocals also have a quality that's maybe more personal than before – at points almost the raspy intimacy we love in some Brazilian singers! The package brings together work from three different albums from the early 70s – all long tracks that include "Tomorrow Is So Uncertain", "Onwunwa", "Ejina Uwa Nya Isi", "Ilo Abu Chi", and "Okwukuwe Na Ncheckwube".

Like the others, the package is beautiful – a huge booklet of notes and photos, in support of a great array of music that includes both classic and more obscure tracks – in modes that run from deep soul to smooth soul, with some nice funky moments in between!

A masterful overview of American soul styles from the 60s – one that brings together a fair bit of deep soul gems, along with some other material that really helps round out the set in a great way! The package is superb – as the album comes with the same huge booklet that you'll find in the other Cairo releases from Mississippi Records – a big 12" square publication that's got notes on all the singers, and a wealth of vintage images – not just photos, but some other great bits too! There's plenty to love here if you like material from the Dave Godin Deep Soul series, or classic southern soul – and titles include "Got No One" by The Delcados, "No Man Is An Island" by The Van Dykes, "Sit Down & Cry" by Jean Wells, "Gotta Make A Comeback" by Eddie Floyd, "It's A Weak Man Who cries" by Eddie & Ernie, "The Dark End Of The Street" by The Glories, "A Love That Never Grows Cold" by Jimmy & Louise Tig, "Many Rivers To Cross" by The Raelettes, "Bad Girl" by The Fabulous Denos, "Long Lonely Broken Heart" by Kal's Kids, and "When I Grow Old" by the Symphonics.

A stunning package of rare and classic soul – very much in the spirit of the other titles on the Cairo imprint, and put together with a huge booklet of notes and images, and a great cover to boot! The approach here is nicely focused, despite the large date range – and most of the music is from the big 60s soul heyday in the US – served up with an approach that's especially heavy on deep soul and southern soul, but which also throws in a few other surprises along the way! Titles include "I'll Be There" by Betty & Roy, "You Don't Love Me" by Gene Burks, "I'm A Lonely Stranger" by Arthur Connelly, "You Don't Have To Worry" by Doris & Kelly, "Don't Let Me Down" by Charlotte Dada, "I've Cried" by The Jhamels, "Goodbye" by Curley Moore, "Get It Over" by Ben & Spence, "Gonna Have To Put You Down" by Oscar Bishop & The Bishops, "It Do Me Good" b The Pitter Pats, "What Are You Gonna Do" by Debra Lewis, "I'm Gonna Hold On To You" by Alice Rozier & Little Joe, "Go Back Home" by Allen toussaint, "All I Want Is You" by Zilla Mayes, "Darling I Still Love You" by Joyce Kennedy, and "Hit The Road Jack" by Margie Hendrix & Percy Mayfield.

Discos Fuentes/Mississippi, Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the most unusual albums ever issued on the legendary Discos Fuentes label – and that's saying a lot, given how many unusual albums the company put out! This set's got a core Colombian groove in the rhythms – very much in the rootsy style that the company was making a name for in the 60s – great percussion, a nice raw edge in the production, and that slight variation in groove that made Colombian music a really refreshing change from the sounds of Havana and New York! Yet the real difference here is that the singer is a kid – the lovely Aurita pictured on the cover – a vocalist who's got this unusual depth for someone her age, this rawness at times that really comes across in a striking way – almost the unbridled energy and emotion that you'd never hear from an adult. That quality livens up the grooves in this really unusual way – all the charms of a vintage Discos Fuentes album, but with a very different spin! Titles include "El Vaquero", "Las Polleras", "Mompoxina", "Chambacu", "Festival En Guarare", "Carino Lindo", and "Lamento De Sirena". LP, Vinyl record album

A deep soul treasure! You've probably never heard of the team of Eddie & Ernie, but they've risen to fame over the years with collectors of rare 60s soul – and have recently been immortalized on volumes of Dave Godin's Deep Soul Treasures, one of the most important soul compilation series to come out in the past few decades! In fact, Eddie & Ernie were so "lost" for years, this album marks their first-ever full length set on vinyl – long overdue, given that they were recording in the 60s and early 70s – both as Eddie and Ernie, and under the names Phoenix Express, The New Bloods, and Little Worley & The Drops. The duo have a brilliant blend of deep and sweet soul that makes us wonder why these guys were never bigger than they were – and think of the set as the same as finding a stash of some of the best 60s soul singles you could hope to hear. Titles include "Bullets Don't Have Eyes", "Lost Friends", "I'm A Young Man", "I'm Going For Myself", "Watch Your Step", "Self Service", "Falling Tears", "That's The Way It Is", "Time Waits For No One", and "Why Do You Treat Me Like You Do".

Pianist-composer Tsegue-Maryam Guebrou has an extraordinary personal history – she is a daughter of the heralded Ethiopian intellectual the Kentiba Guebrou, and lived many years as a nun who recorded rarely, and then only as a means to serve the poor. The solo piano compositions in this set were culled from rare albums recorded in the early 60s and 70s, plus a few later recordings from the early 90s. The music is gorgeous and difficult to describe – sweetly somber, melancholy, and befitting the solo performances.

A great record from the offbeat legend Michael Hurley – a set that features both spare tunes and others done with a larger band that's full of unusual instrumentation! The spare, ragged little solo tunes are served up on guitar and vocals – numbers that greatly showcase both Hurley's easygoing, slowly-rolling style, as well has his piercing, high emphatic howls. The group tracks feature bits of fiddle and mandolin – plus piano, harmonica, bass, and cornet – used sparingly, but in ways that punctuate the vocals nicely. Titles include the classic "Werewolf" – plus "Grand Canyon Line", "English Nobleman", "Be Kind To Me", "Troubled Waters", "Sweedeedee", "Open Up", "Jocko's Lament", "Light Green Fellow", "Get The Best Of Me", "Biscuit Roller", "When The Swallows Come Back To Capistrano", and "Penguins".

✨✧ Kiko Kids JazzTanganyika Na Uhuru ... LP
Mzuri/Mississippi, Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Really great work from Kiko Kids Jazz – neither a jazz group, nor a batch of child musicians – but instead an East African collective who have a sound that mixes familiar guitar lines and percussion with a slight bit of mandolin too – all in a mode that's this beautiful blend of the strings of the instruments, the lilting currents of percussion, and the haunting lead vocals of Salim Zahoro – the enigmatic singer who really gives the group a unique flavor! The sound here is maybe in similar territory to highlife – but the tunes are more compact overall, and have a focus that's really carried by Salim's vocals – often with a quality that's relatively lean, especially when you consider that most of these recordings feature the group with almost 20 members in play. The set's the first we've ever seen to bring together these rare singles recorded in Mombasa in the early 60s – and titles include "Sili Sishibi", "Nyerere Karume", "Bahati", "Sauti Yako Tamu", "Nda Kuharashe", "Mineona Ua", "Tanu Imeleta Uhuru", "Tula Ubona", "Lumumba", and "Mpenzi Wanionea".

Jin/Mississippi, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Great work from Little Bob – aka Lil Bob, aka Camille Bob – a New Orleans soul singer with a nicely funky edge! The album's almost got more of a mid 60s James Brown inspiration than some of Bob's southern contemporaries – with backing from the super-tight Lollipops, who really know how to make all the instruments come down on the groove – but also still leave room for one of the horn players to step out with a smoking solo from time to time! Bob's got a mellow, heartbreaking vibe on some of the more laidback tracks – but then can really soar on the more upbeat numbers – showing an emotional range that's really wonderful, and which makes the album as much a deep soul treasure as it is incredibly rare. Titles include "I Got Loaded", "The Way It's Got To Be", "Nobody But You", "My Heart's On Fire", "Are You Ever Coming Home", "So In Need", "With These Hands", and "Look Out Mr Heartache".

Taylor only issued a handful of singles on the Pitch label in the 70s, and this set mixes two of those rare tracks with home recordings from around the same time – making for a nice peek into the most intimate corners of his music, as Theotis sings with a fantastic voice, and also accompanies himself on the piano.

Dig Tuareg guitar? Then you should find plenty here to really expand your listening palette, and in a nicely different way – as these older cuts from Mauritania show a similar use of electric guitar over long-spun rhythms – often cyclical and hypnotic, especially when the musician turns up the fuzz! The Saharan nation really has a way with the guitar – and here, the styles vary nicely, along with the variety of artists included in the set – really expanding our understanding of the music, and in a way that's as groovy as it possibly can be. The set comes with a great booklet of notes – in true Mississippi style – and titles include "Wezin" by Luleide Ould Dendenni, "Banjey" by Kebrouh, "L'Ensijab" by Ateg Ould Syed, "Wezin" by Jeich Ould Chighaly, "Moulana Laa Moulana" by Baba Ould Hembara & Mamma Mint Hembara, "El Horr & Az-Zrag" by Mohammed Cheikh Ould Syed, and "Guelbi Vatimetou" by Mohammed Guitar & Sbeyniat.

Ray CharlesGenius Hits The Road (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Rhino, 1960. Used ... $4.99
A stunning standout from Ray Charles' years on ABC Records – and a set that brings in a bit of hard-swinging jazz to the country-styled groove Ray was hitting at the time! Backings are by Ralph Burns, who keeps things pretty hip – not as modern as some of his 50s charts for other singers, but with some great horns that cascade beautifully alongside Ray's raspy vocals in the lead. The "road" title leads to a bunch of travel-themed tunes – but that approach also yields one of Charles' biggest classics – his version of "Georgia On My Mind" – heard here amidst other tracks that include "New York's My Home", "Moonlight In Vermont", "Deep In The Heart Of Texas", "Blue Hawaii", "Carry Me Back To Old Virginny", "Alabamy Bound", and "Mississippi Mud". CD features 7 more bonus tracks – mostly travel-related numbers from later years – with titles that include "Hit The Road Jack", "I Was On Georgia Time", "Take Me Home Country Roads", "Blue Moon Of Kentucky", and "The Long & Winding Road".

A pretty great debut from Mike Finnigan – recorded after quite a long early journey in music, which included time in Jerry Hahn's Brotherhood group in San Francisco, and work with both Dave Mason and Jimi Hendrix – and countless other sessions that really helped him sharpen his chops before stepping out as a solo act! The record was mostly done down in Muscle Shoals, with production from Jerry Wexler – and the whole thing's got the strong currents of soulful influences you might expect – really augmented by help from Roger Hawkins on drums, Barry Beckett on keyboards, and even a bit of work from the Muscle Shoals horns! Mike's got some of the roots rock elements you'd guess from his look on the cover, but is also tightening things up in a great way too – on titles that include "Saved By The Grace Of Your Love", "Southern Lady", "Mississippi On My Mind", "Misery Loves Company", "Everything Will Work Out Right", and "The Room Nobody Lives In".

The title cut's a well-known gem – one that's been covered instrumentally in some break-heavy versions, but which sounds even more amazing here in Bobbie's original version – one of the moodiest pop tunes we've ever heard, with lyrics, and a way of presenting them, that still leaves us breathless all these many years later. There's also some other funky bits here too – Gentry's raspy "Mississippi Delta" – an original number that almost seems to unseat Tina Turner for down-home soul – and the groovy "Sunday Best", "Niki Hoeky", "Papa Won't You Let Me Go To Town With You", and "Chickasaw Country Child", all numbers that echo the same lilting acoustic guitar grooves of "Billie Joe".

An early hardbop gem from Japanese trumpeter Terumasa Hino – quite different than you might think from his more famous work of the 70s – with a rolling, soulful groove that would almost be at home on 60s Blue Note! Given Hino's chosen instrument, we'd probably link this one best to some of the more creative late 60s sides from Lee Morgan – still with an ear for a hard-edge groove, but also stepping out a bit too – with work from Takeru Muraoka on tenor, Hiroshi Suzuiki on trombone, and Masabumi Kikuchi on piano. Cuts include a nice cover of Duke Pearson's "The Magilla", a groovy version of "Feelin' Good", and a trippy take on "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds" – plus the tracks "And Satisfy" and "Mississippi Dip". Also features a bonus alternate take of "Trust Me Now". CD

A massive 3CD look at the key early years of Elmore James – a package that's overflowing with great work by one of the greatest blues guitarists of the 50s! The set starts way back at James' roots in Mississippi, with some sweetly rough-edged recordings that still sparkle with incredible lines on electric guitar – then it moves deeper into Elmore's years in Chicago, recording with slightly greater clarity, and a sound that had an undeniable influence on the scene in that city at the time. The set's completed by recordings from Culver City, New Orleans, and Chicago again – presented in both master takes and alternates that offer up some equally compelling guitar solos. The set features 71 tracks in all, plus 40 full pages of notes – and titles that include "Dust My Broom", "Hand In Hand", "One More Drink", "I Believe", "Make My Dreams Come True", "Dark & Dreary", "Strange Kinda Feeling", "Early In The Morning", "Happy Home", "So Mean To Me", "Long Tall Woman", "Elmo's Shuffle", "Sho Nuff I Do", "Please Come Back To Me", "Wehre Can My Baby Be", "I May Be Wrong", "Kicking The Blues Around", and "Sinful Woman".

Crucial cuts in the development of New Orleans soul – served up here by a singer who was instrumental in setting up the new sound of the city in the 60s! Bobby Marchan's a singer who really got his start during the soul years, unlike some of the R&B contemporaries that moved into New Orleans soul – and right from the start, he had a lean, raw style that was perfect for the new groove that was setting the world on fire – presented here on rare recordings for the Ace label in Mississippi, where he worked with Huey Smith as well – and on tracks recorded up in New York for the legendary Fire Records label of Bobby Robinson – but which were every bit as crucial as material recorded in the Crescent City to the legacy of the Nola groove! The package features 36 tracks in all, including some rare alternate takes – and titles include "Booty Green", "Snoopin & Accusin", "You're Still My Baby (parts 1 & 2)", "I Need Some One", "Yes It's Written All Over Your Face", "Things I Used To Do (parts 1 & 2)", "Look At My Heart", "Give A Helping Hand", "Chickee Wah Wah", "Quit My Job", "Loberta", "Tiddley Wink", "Rockin Behind The Iron Curtain", "I'll Never Let You Go", "Little Girl Of Mine", and "Hush Your Mouth".

Capitol/Big Pink (South Korea), 1971. New Copy ... $18.99 22.99
Larry McNeely's was best known as a banjo player before cutting this album – but he's a surprisingly strong presence in the lead, working here in this smoking mix of country elements and roots rock modes – but all without any of the cliche you might hear on other projects of the time! There's a very personal, distinct quality to the music – both Larry's voice, and his way of penning a tune – maybe echoes of hipper 60s folk, but filtered through all the changes of the latter half of the decade – which gives it the wisdom to never be too full of itself. And although Larry's initial instrument was acoustic, the set's got mostly electric guitar throughout, but mixed with some other acoustic touches in a really great way. Titles include "Hard Time Keeping You In Mind", "Dazed In New York City", "Little Lucifer", "Evil Days Counting The Minute Blues", "Are You Ready", "Down Along The Cove", and "Mississippi Water". CD

The group here is Monk's key 60s quartet – with Charlie Rouse on tenor, Ben Riley on drums, and Butch Warren on bass – all players who are more than willing to give Thelonious plenty of space to stretch out on his own when he wants to, but also manage to come in and sharpen up the groove as well! Rouse's tenor is always a joy at this point, and the longer than usual tracks allow both he and Monk to solo freely. Titles include "Blue Monk", "Sweet & Lovely", "Hackensack", Rhythm-a-ning", "Bright Mississippi", and "Epistrophy". CD

Ohio PlayersOhio Players Gold ... LP
Mercury, 1976. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $19.99
A well-titled set – as it's the mid 70s, and the Ohio Players were certainly turning out a lot of gold! Their move to Mercury Records from the smaller indie Westbound was a real winning move – as it gave them a smoother soul feel that only expanded their groove, not restricted it! This tasty "best of" set features most of their top work from those years – with killer tunes that include "Love Rollercoaster", "Fire", "Skin Tight", "Who'd She Coo", "Feel The Beat", "I Want To Be Free", "Fopp", "Far East Mississippi", "Only A Child Can Love", "Jive Turkey (part 1)", and the great "Sweet Sticky Thing"!

Duke PearsonIntroducing Duke Pearson's Big Band ... LP
Blue Note, 1967. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $9.99 14.99
A much better record than you'd expect from the somewhat cheesy cover – one of Duke Pearson's funkiest sessions ever, and a hard swinging big band set with a great late 60s feel! The group is all-class all the way – with players that include Pearson, Bob Cranshaw, Mickey Roker, Marvin Stamm, Julian Priester, Frank Foster, and Jerry Dodgion – and the tracks are short, but with an expansive groove that takes this one way past regular big band jazz, and into the mode of some of the hipper European groups at the time. Includes the classic track "Groundhog", which has a nice funky break on it – plus the cuts "New Girl", "Bedouin", "New Time Shuffle", and "Mississippi Dip". LP, Vinyl record album

Mavis StaplesWe'll Never Turn Back (blue vinyl pressing) ... LP
Anti, 2007. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $23.99 25.99
A rootsy exploration of themes from the Civil Rights movement by Mavis Staples – getting the Anti treatment here with some real back-to-basics production from Ry Cooder! The sound is possibly even more down home than any of Mavis solo work from years back – certainly more so than her classy 70s soundtrack efforts, and even her earliest work for Stax – almost in an imagined place that jumps backwards to the sound of the earliest Staple Singers albums on Vee Jay, then brings in a bit of Cooder-esque soul to fill things up. Backing vocals on some tracks are by Ladysmith Black Mambazo, and by a trio of backing singers on others – and titles include "Down In Mississippi", "Eyes On The Prize", "99 & 1/2", "This Little Light Of Mine", "On My Way", "I'll Be Rested", and "My Own Eyes".

Staples Jr SingersWhen Do We Get Paid ... LP
Brenda/Luaka Bop, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $20.99 22.99
A lost gospel treasure from this obscure Mississippi group – cut in the mid 70s, but with a stripped-down sound that's completely timeless overall! The Staples Jr Singers certainly have picked up some of the more righteous currents of mainstream soul and funk at the time – echoed both in their tremendous phrasing on the lyrics, and on some of the album's used of raw guitar licks next to their words – but the stripped-down vibe gives the record a feel that's almost more 60s deep soul overall – as befits their southern roots, and the album's issue on a small indie label! There's also maybe a bit less "church" on the record than the usual gospel outing of the time – more overall messages about love, unity, and feeling – which also gives the whole thing a very transcendent quality. Titles include "On My Journey Home", "When Do We Get Paid", "I'm Looking For A Man", "I Know You're Going To Miss Me", "Trouble Of The World", "I Got A New Home", and "I Feel Good".

Rufus ThomasDo The Funky Chicken (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Stax, 1970. New Copy ... $4.99 11.98
One of the best Rufus Thomas albums from the 70s – a key record from his comeback years, and one that has him trading in his older R&B mode for a harder, funkier Memphis groove! Rufus was 52 at the time, but thanks to a never-dying fire, and some great youthful arrangements, the set crackles with a raw intensity that put him at the top of the funky Stax for the time! The set includes the massive comeback hit "Funky Chicken", plus a sublime remake of "Sixty Minute Man" – done in a slow and funky mode that rolls on for lover 7 minutes in all! Other tracks include "Soul Food", "Rufus Rastus Johnson Brown", "Turn Your Damper Down", and remakes of "The Preacher & The Bear" and "Bearcat". And dang! There's a huuuuuge amount of bonus tracks here too – funky Stax singles from the early 70s – including "Funky Mississippi", "So Hard To Get Along With", "Funky Way", "I Want To Hold You", "Itch & Scratch (parts 1 & 2)", and "Boogie Ain't Nuttin (parts 1 & 2)".

Stan Tracey & Bobby WellinsTracey/Wellins Play Monk ... CD
Resteamed (UK), 2006. New Copy ... $13.99 19.99
Stan Tracey's love of Thelonious Monk is no surprise – given that Stan's earliest recordings were essentially the British equivalent of Monk's angular experiments back in the 50s! Here, though, Stan revisits the territory of his main muse – but he does so with a slightly different feel, and one that keeps the record from just being a simple rehash of Monk's ideas. The tunes are all by Thelonious, but Stan's presentation of them is nicely personal – a bit more mature and mellowed slightly with age, and done in wonderful tandem with saxophonist Bobby Wellins – as well as bassist Andrew Cleyndert, and drummer Clark Tracey. Titles include "Monk's Mood", "Let's Cool One", "Bright Mississippi", "Locomotive", "Well You Needn't", and "I Mean You". CD

VariousFunky Funky Baton Rouge – Rare & Unreissued Baton Rouge Funk & Soul 1968-1974 ... LP
Funky Delicacies, Late 60s/Mid 70s. New Copy ... $18.99 21.99
First New Orleans, then Houston, now Baton Rouge – leave it to the folks at Tuff City to make any southern city funky funky funky! The album actually only features work by 4 artists – but all of them are pretty darn great, the kind of obscure funky acts that first put us in business years back! The groove is hard and heavy – quite a different slice of LA than the New Orleans groove – with lots more hard drums and rumbling bass, and an overall sound that's very much in the east coast indie funk sound of the early 70s. And honestly, this is one of the freshest and strongest compilations that Tuff City ever put out – filled with great tracks that include "Joy & Affection", "Funky Black Man", and "Hogwash" by Earnest Jackson; "I Never Found A Girl" by Underground Express; "That's Henry", "Mississippi Mud", and "Angela" by Black Blood & The Chocolate Pickles; and "Ooh Wee Baby I Love You", "What The Deal Is", and "Groove Making" by George Perkins.

Very wild work from the enigmatic Bobby Beausoleil – a set that has the underground talent taking on songs by Eden Ahbez and Screamin Jay Hawkins – as well as turning out plenty of unusual tunes of his own! The music is very moody, and full of dark corners and currents – almost this slight goth reworking of modes from the American south – music from Mississippi down to New Orleans, but reworked through the freakier, fuzzier side of the spectrum. Maybe imagine if Dennis Hopper and Peter Fonda had survived their trip down south in Easy Rider – then holed up for decades to come up with sounds like this! Titles include "Voodoo Shiraya", "Nature Boy", "The Bones Of My Mind", "Ghost Highway", "Hard Road", and "The Subterranean Path". CD

ABC, 1960. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A stunning standout from Ray Charles' years on ABC Records – and a set that brings in a bit of hard-swinging jazz to the country-styled groove Ray was hitting at the time! Backings are by Ralph Burns, who keeps things pretty hip – not as modern as some of his 50s charts for other singers, but with some great horns that cascade beautifully alongside Ray's raspy vocals in the lead. The "road" title leads to a bunch of travel-themed tunes – but that approach also yields one of Charles' biggest classics – his version of "Georgia On My Mind" – heard here amidst other tracks that include "New York's My Home", "Moonlight In Vermont", "Deep In The Heart Of Texas", "Blue Hawaii", "Carry Me Back To Old Virginny", "Alabamy Bound", and "Mississippi Mud".

✨✧ VariousMemphis 70 – The City's Funk & Soul In The Decade After Otis 1968 to 1977 ... CD
BGP (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A mind-expanding look at Memphis soul – one that gets way past common cliches about the city and its music! There's a heavy dose of funk in the mix on most numbers here – a gritty, fuzzy approach to the music that seems slightly borrowed from the Detroit scene at the end of the 60s – then mixed with some rougher, rootsier southern soul styles too! But other tracks take on a more sophisticated sound too – some of the righteous elements that hit Stax in the post-1968 period, especially as Isaac Hayes and David Porter were working on their own great solo work. Yet unlike Hayes and Porter, most of the artists here are much lesser-known – singers and groups who never charted big, but who got the chance to record for Memphis labels like XL, Stax, Select-O-Hits, and Sounds Of Memphis. CD features 20 tracks in all – and titles include "Dig It" by The Optimistics, "Mississippi Mud" by Smithsonian, "Two Paces Ahead Of Love" by Willie Walker, "Pullin" by The Minits, "It's Bump Time" by Gene Bowlegs Miller, "Blackrock Yeah Yeah" by Blackrock, "Keep The Faith" by Mel & Tim, "Watch Dog (alt)" by Barbara & The Browns, "Come What May" by John Gary Williams, "Strange Things" by Art Jerry Miller, "Shake" by The Ovations, "Tip Toeing" by Alvin Cash, "The Way Of Me" by Hannon, "Take A Giant Step" by LaCleve Milon, "Papa Killed A Chicken" by Willie Toliver, and "Don't Boom Boom" by Lillian Hale.

A late triumph for Dylan, and solidly delivering on the promise of his return to excellence on Time Out Of Mind a few years earlier – setting foot into the new millennium by hitting even higher point in a pretty incredible comeback period! Dylan produces himself here, credited as Jack Frost, and he and his road tested band bring the varied rootsy vibe of his latter day sound to the forefront after the moodier, murkier vibe of the previous record. A genuine classic, with songs Dylan kept in his live setlist for many years to come – clearly the man himself is proud of this one, and rightfully so. Titles include "Tweedle Dee & Teedle Dum", "Mississippi", "Summer Days", "High Water (For Charley Patton)", "Honest With Me", "Po'Boy", "Cry A While", "Sugar Baby" and more. CD

Capitol, 1967. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
A key late 60s country crossover set, but one that also inspired a fair bit of funk as well! The title cut's a well-known gem – one that's been covered instrumentally in some break-heavy versions, but which sounds even more amazing here in Bobbie's original version – one of the moodiest pop tunes we've ever heard, with lyrics, and a way of presenting them, that still leaves us breathless all these many years later. There's also some other funky bits here too – Gentry's raspy "Mississippi Delta" – an original number that almost seems to unseat Tina Turner for down-home soul – and the groovy "Sunday Best", "Niki Hoeky", "Papa Won't You Let Me Go To Town With You", and "Chickasaw Country Child", all numbers that echo the same lilting acoustic guitar grooves of "Billie Joe".

Malaco, 1976. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
A pivotal moment in the development of southern soul – as the album was one of the first really big hits to come out of the growing Malaco scene in Jackson, Mississippi. The style of the record is a mix of older female southern soul styles, plus some of the warmer mellow production that was coming out of the Alston/Miami scene at the same time. And although Malaco mostly moved into cheesy blues during the early 80s, this one's very much in a popular crossover soul style. Features the title hit "Misty Blue", plus "It's So Good", "Too Much Love", "Ain't That A Mother's Luck", "Enough Woman Left (To Be Your Lady)", and "The Only Time You Ever Say You Love Me".

✨✧ John PrineDiamonds In The Rough ... LP
Atlantic, 1972. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
Fantastic early work from John Prine – exactly the kind of sounds that made him so different from both the 60s generation of folksingers, and most of his hip 70s contemporaries too! In one breath, Prine manages to embrace musical worlds that run from New Orleans up through the Mississippi Delta, into Memphis and Nashville, on up to the Chicago scene in which he made his name – which is where the biting wit and special vision of his sound really comes into focus! Prine was reportedly discovered in a small Chicago club by Kris Kristofferson and Roger Ebert – but from the sound of his well-developed talents here, he hardly needed any big names to point him out – as the man's in very comfortable company of his own, working with Steve Goodman on second guitar and David Bromberg on electric guitar, mandolin, and dobro. Titles include "The Late John Garfield Blues", "The Frying Pan", "Billy The Bum", "Clocks & Spoons", "The Great Compromise", "Take The Star Out Of The Window", and "Yes I Guess They Oughta Name A Drink After You".

✨✧ Sid SelvidgeCold Of The Morning (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Peabody/Omnivore, 1976. Used ... Out Of Stock
An under-discovered gem from the Memphis scene of the 70s – one of the few records ever by Sid Selvidge, a singer with an amazing pedigree! Sid had a varied career that included time as a soul DJ in the south, a Greenwich Village folkie, and a key part of the Ardent Studio scene in Memphis – and all these different roots come into play beautifully here in an under-circulated album that was only Sid's third time in the studio, and second full release. Stax had noticed Selvidge early – a great choice for the label, given the mix of roots and soul in his sound – and he'd also recorded an album for Elektra which was never issued. But this set may well be the purest moment ever for Sid – a wonderful hybrid of Tennessee styles that really gets at the complex, personal vibe of some of the best singer-songwriters in Memphis during the 70s – many of whom, like Sid, never got their due because they weren't living on the coast. Instrumentation has some nice rootsy elements, very acoustic overall – and Selvidge's vocals have this trill that takes us back to classic Nashville, but served up with a much more contemporary spirit. Titles include "Frank's Tune", "Joudge Boushe", "Lazrus", "Many A Mile", "Miss The Mississippi & You", "I've Got A Secret", and "The Outlaw". CD features 6 bonus tracks too! CD

Side one features a number of shorter Nugent-penned tunes, and side two is a slightly more complicated offering – a bit of a concept piece, with tracks that form a story over the side of the record.

Johnny Mercer was one of the coolest, grooviest songwriters of the 40s – and he was also a singer with a hell of a lot of charm – which makes him a perfect match here for Darin, who was a master showman right from the start! The pair trade lines wonderfully, and get the right sort of jazzy backings from Billy May – who knows how to keep things swinging, and lift the spirits of the set! The album starts and ends with the warm title cut "Two Of A Kind" – co-written by the pair – and other titles include some great Mercer compositions, plus other titles too – with tracks that include "Ace In The Hole", "East Of The Rockies", "Bob White", "Mississippi Mud", and "Who Takes Care Of The Caretaker's Daughter".
