✨✧ Maxine NightingaleRight Back Where We Started From ... LP
United Artists, 1976. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
The title track to this one – "Right Back Where We Started From – was a real 70s monster, hitting big on AM radio and the dancefloors, and still kind of a guilty pleasure for us these days. The rest of the record's a bit spotty – but there's a few nice moments, like Maxine's version of Earth Wind & Fire's "Reasons", and Leon Ware's "If I Ever Lose This Heaven". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ollie NightingaleSweet Surrender ... CD
Pride/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $13.99
The former leader of Ollie & The Nightingale steps out on his own – hitting a wonderfully deep approach to Memphis soul that's even more sublime than his previous group's records for Stax! There's a quiet genius going on here – a simple but powerful take on southern soul that pushes the genre into a new level of sophistication while still holding onto its roots. The album's a lost southern soul classic that should be on the shelf of anyone who digs male deep soul vocals – and we've never been certain why Ollie never scored bigger with the set at the time! Production and arrangements are by Gene Bowlegs Miller, and titles include "Here I Am Again", "May the Best Man Win", "Sweet Surrender", and "I Gave Her Everything She Needed". CD

✨✧ George AdamsNightingale (with bonus track) ... CD
Somethin Else/Blue Note (Japan), 1989. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Beautiful work from reedman George Adams – a set that has him blowing some great tenor, plus a bit of flute and soprano sax too – on a set of laidback tracks served up with a great quartet! George's horn is definitely the star attraction here – but the combo's got just the right sort of sensitive swing to bring out his best – Hugh Lawson on piano, Sirone on bass, and Victor Lewis on drums – all sparking their own sense of creativity throughout, yet never overwhelming George's lead. A few tunes pick up a great groove, which leads to some especially wonderful lines from Adams – those bolder moments that we love from the early years, recast here in the space of a familiar song – on titles that include "Cry Me A River", "Moon River", "A Nightingale Sang In Berkeley Square", "Going Home", and "Bridge Over Troubled Water". CD also features the bonus track "Besame Mucho". CD

Ethel AzamaExotic Dreams – The Enticing Voice Of Ethel Azama ... LP
Liberty, Late 50s. Very Good ... $29.99
A beautiful little vocal set – and not nearly as gimmicky as you'd expect! The album's "presented" by Martin Denny, but overall it's a pretty straight jazz set – featuring vocals by Japanese/Hawaiian Ethel, sung in a cool and moody style that's got lots of 50s west coast touches. The arrangements in the set are by Paul Conrad, of who we know little – in a mellow jazz-based style that has a lot more of a torchy feel than you'd expect from the exotic title and cover, which mostly seem to be playing up on Ethel's ethnic origins! Titles include "Green Fire", "Lazy Afternoon", "Shady Lady Bird", "Ringo Oiwake", and "Nightingale". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono teal label pressing with deep groove. Cover has some seam splitting.)

Peggy LeeMy Best To You – Peggy Lee Sings (10 Inch LP) ... LP

Early Capitol Records material from Peggy Lee – including her hit "Manana", plus "Hold Me", "The Nightingale Can Sing The Blues", "It's A Good Day", "Golden Earrings", and a great take on "Why Don't You Do Right". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear, but is nice overall.)

Joe LocoMambo Fantasy ... LP
Tico, Late 50s. Very Good ... $29.99
One of Joe Loco's most haunting albums, and a moody mix of spare Latin percussion with haunting off-kilter piano solos, in a swirling blend of tracks that form Joe's Mambo Fantasy. Joe's work on the keys is as captivating as ever, and with the no-nonsense arrangements of the tracks, you can really get to hear him at his best on this album. Titles include "Mucho Swing", "Love For Sale", "Lover", "Cuban Nightingale", "Body & Soul", and "September In The Rain". Nice cover image, too! LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing with deep groove. Cover has light wear, a name in pen, and a sticker spot.)

Wally StottLondon Souvenir – A Musical Souvenir Of London Town (with bonus tracks) ... CD
El (UK), 1958. New Copy ... $3.99 13.99
A pretty groovy album of instrumental tracks from arranger Wally Stott – an artist who'd later craft the beautiful backdrops for some of Scott Walker's solo records! The style here is a bit more 50s instrumental – larger orchestrations with some touches of jazz, as Stott serves up a musical picture of London in the postwar years – from swinging Soho to more traditional melodies from the older side of the city. Wally's instrumentation is always pretty creative – very full and filled with lots of cool touches, even amidst the larger strings – kind of a cross between late 50s RCA and Capitol Records modes! Titles include "London By Night", "London Pride", "Chelsea", "Rotten Row", "Knightsbridge March", and "Oranges & Lemons". CD adds in some nice bonus tracks – two Mel Torme tracks with Stott, "London Pride" and "A Nightingale Sang In Berkely Square" – a few Noel Coward tunes, including "World Weary", "Don't Put Your Daughter On The Stage", and "Mad Dogs & Englishmen" – and the titles "High Heels" and "Girl From Corsica" by Trevor Duncan, and "Melody On The Move" by Clive Richardson.

✨✧ VariousSoul Music Lovers Only – Without Sugar & Milk – Male Deep Singers Collection ... CD
Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1970s. New Copy ... $13.99
That's the classy Chi-Lites on the cover, but the set features music from a nice array of deep soul talents of the 70s – pulled together from a mix of tracks from labels that include Hi Records, Brunswick, TK, and Invictus! As you'd guess from the title, the set focuses on male singers only – both groups and individuals – and the package has a good mix of southern styles and a few bits from up north – mostly from the earlier part of the 70s. Tracks include "Under My Wings" by Smith Connection, "Sweet Surrender" by Ollie Nightingale, "Star Bright Star Lite" by Syl Johnson, "Let Me Back In" by Tyrone Davis, "Don't Leave Me Starvin For Your Love (part 1)" by Lamont Dozier, "I Can't Do Enough For You Baby" by Tommy Tate, "I Don't Do Windows" by OV Wright, "Higher & Higher" by Jackie Wilson, "Home Is Where The Hatred Is" by Gil Scott Heron, "Take Me To The River" by Al Green, and "Living In The Footsteps Of Another Man" by The Chi-Lites.

✨✧ Eddie CanoTaste Of Cano ... LP
GNP/Crescendo, Late 50s. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Excellent stuff! Although Eddie Cano cut a lot of pop-Latin piano records, this hard jazzy groover is a firey bunch of instrumentals that stands as one of his best records ever! The set's got a tight west coast group that includes a tight trumpet frontline, plus timbales, bass, and congas – all supporting Eddie's lively piano. The album's got a few nice originals from Eddie – like "Ican", "Baila Pachanga", and "Pancero Mambero" – plus great jazzy numbers like "Tin Tin Deo", "Nightingale", and "Line For Lyons". Truly one of Eddie's best, and a hard one to find! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Brinsley SchwarzSilver Pistol ... LP
United Artists, 1972. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the most warmly-crafted albums ever from Brinsley Schwarz – and a set that definitely has the group resonating very strongly with some of the US acts who'd clearly inspired their sound! The music was all recorded at the group's shared home, with a laidback style that really lets the songwriting skills of Ian Gomm and Nick Lowe really shine – but also without sounding too casual, or too home-recorded either! The blend of organ and guitars is perfect – with just the right country currents, yet never too slavish in that style either – almost a perfect Byrds or Burritos sort of blend. Tracks include "Juju Man", "One More Day", "The Last Time I Was Fooled", "Dry Land", "Nightingale", and "Unknown Number". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear and a promo sticker.)

✨✧ Brinsley SchwarzSilver Pistol/Please Don't Ever Change ... CD
United Artists/BGO (UK), 1971/1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A pair of great albums from Brinsley Schwarz – back to back on a single CD! First up is Silver Pistol – one of the most warmly-crafted albums ever from Brinsley Schwarz – and a set that definitely has the group resonating very strongly with some of the US acts who'd clearly inspired their sound! The music was all recorded at the group's shared home, with a laidback style that really lets the songwriting skills of Ian Gomm and Nick Lowe really shine – but also without sounding too casual, or too home-recorded either! The blend of organ and guitars is perfect – with just the right country currents, yet never too slavish in that style either – almost a perfect Byrds or Burritos sort of blend. Tracks include "Juju Man", "One More Day", "The Last Time I Was Fooled", "Dry Land", "Nightingale", and "Unknown Number". Please Don't Ever Change Is a record that has Brinsley Schwarz sounding a lot more confident than before – really coming forward with all the strength in their songs, and mixing things up with elements that mark the group as more distinctly British than some of their previous sets! We might go so far as to mark the record as a birthing moment for pub rock, but that might be too specific – we'll just say that there's a great blend of urban and rural, London and pastoral, and plenty of that punch that would later be associated with Nick Lowe during his solo years. Tunes are by Lowe and Ian Gomm – and titles include "I Won't Make It Without You", "Play That Fast Thing", "Hooked On Love", "Why Do We Hurt The One We Love", and "I Worry Bout You Baby". CD

✨✧ Don Cherry & Ed BlackwellEl Corazon ... CD
ECM (Germany), 1982. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really great album from these two giants of the Ornette Coleman generation – and one that also shows just how much space both musicians had traversed since the 60s! Don Cherry plays his familiar pocket trumpet in the lead, but also brings in piano, melodica, organ, and doussn gouni – creating this beautiful sonic palette next to the very creative work on drums and percussion from Blackwell! Both musicians improvise in rhythm-driven modes that seem to have their roots in Ornette's original quartet with the pair – but there's also open ears to a globe's worth of instrumental elements, and decades of new sound shapes as well. Fantastic throughout – with titles that include "Mutron/Bemsha Swing/Solidarity/Arabian Nightingale", Roland Alphonso", "Street Dancing", "Makondi", and "Near In". CD

✨✧ Ollie & The NightingalesOllie & The Nightingales (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Stax, 1969/Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The near-complete Stax recordings of Ollie & The Nightingales – one of the few important vocal groups on the classic Memphis scene! The arrangements are classic Stax – handled by Isaac Hayes, David Porter, and Booker T – and The Nightingales sing with a sound that's both sweet and deep at the same time, coming together wonderfully in the album's well-honed set of tracks that shows that although Memphis wasn't as big in the vocal group mode as Philly or New York, it still had a great group or two at the time! The CD features the group's full album Ollie & The Nightingales, plus some great bonus tracks from the time after Ollie Hoskins left the group – a total of 19 tracks in all! Includes the sublime cut "I've Never Found A Girl", plus "Showered With Love", "Mellow Way You Treat Your Man", "You'll Never Do Wrong", "Broke – In Love", and "You're Movin Much Too Fast", "Just A Little Overcome", "Can't Get Away", "Don't Do It/I'm With You", and "Don't Make The Good Suffer".

VariousGive Me My Flowers – Powerhouse Gospel Music From The 50s & 60s On Nashboro Records ... LP
Nashboro/Third Man, 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $16.99
A fantastic collection of postwar gospel recordings from the legendary Nashboro Records – one of the most important imprints for the music back in the 50s and 60s! We rank the work of Nashboro right up with the famous Houston-bred productions of Peacock Records – and as Peacock was part of the secular soul label Duke, Nashboro was also part of the blues powerhouse Excello – which means that the cuts here are put together at a level that's maybe got as much understanding of the needs of the record racks and jukebox scene, as they are aimed at the higher ideals of the lyrics! Nashboro excelled especially in the sorts of small vocal groups that can make gospel singles from this time every bit as much a slice of harmony heavy as rare doo wop tracks – and titles here include "Seven Angels" by The Trumpeteers, "Just One Step" by Little Johnny Jones & The Little Jones Singers, "I Received My Blessing" by Radio Four, "Touch Me Lord Jesus" by Angelic Gospel Singers, "Give Me My Flowers" by The Consolers, "I Would Not Be A Sinner" by Dixie Nightingales, "Jesus Keeps Me Alive" by The Skylarks, "Sit Down Servant" by Swanee Quintet, "When Jesus Stays Home" by Southern Echoes Singers, and "Rest From My Labor" by Supreme Angels. 16 cuts in all – and very nicely done!

VariousSoul Explosion (Stax) ... LP
Stax/Craft, 1969. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99 29.99
A landmark double LP collection of work from Stax Records – issued at the end of the 60s, after their split with Atlantic – and a real celebration of the new life that was coming to the label at the time! The range of work is really great, and the 28 track set moves easily from hits to more obscure numbers – in a mode that really shows the growing sound of Stax as the 70s approached. Classic! Titles include "Hot Hips" by The Bar-Kays, "Where Do I Go" by Carla Thomas, "I Like Everything About You" by Jimmy Hughes, "It's Me" by Judy Clay, "Booker's Theme" by Booker T & The MGs, "Heartaches Mountain" by Ollie & The Nightingales, "Soul Clap 69" by Booker T & The MGs, "These Old Memories" by The Mad Lads, "Private Number" by William Bell & Judy Clay, "Long Walk To DC" by Staple Singers, and "Copy Kat" by Bar-Kays. 28 tracks in all!

VariousStax 68 – A Memphis Story (5CD set) ... CD
Stax/Craft, 1968. New Copy 5CD ... $62.99 69.99
1968 was the world of revolution around the world – and to our music-trained ears, one of the greatest revolutions occurred at the legendary Stax Records! Before that year, the label had been working with Atlantic Records – who totally screwed them, and took away all their catalog – leaving Stax to start completely from scratch, and reinvent themselves as an even more righteous company in the process! Make no mistake, Stax was already a pretty great company before – the leading light of the Memphis soul scene – but in 1968, the company went back to basics, and also embraced new waves of funk and blues, freed up to go into some very groovy territory. This 5CD set documents that amazing time – by bringing together all the singles released in 1968, both a-sides and b-sides – along with a big booklet of notes and photos that not only talk about the changes at the label, but also the city of Memphis in the tragic year of 1968 – which also saw the assassination of Dr Martin Luther King. The package is overflowing with as much history as it is soul music – and features over 120 songs by artists who include Booker T & The MGs, Linda Lynell, Judy Clay, Harvey Scales, Otis Redding, The Memphis Nomads, Shirley Walton, Bar-Kays, Ollie & The Nightingales, William Bell, The Goodees, Mable John, The Epsilons, The Soul Children, Mad Lads, Charmells, Lindell Hill, Jimmy Hughes, Delaney & Bonnie, Dino & Doc, Daaron Lee, Albert King, Rufus Thomas, Carla Thomas, Derek Martin, Johnnie Taylor, and many more!

VariousStudio One – Black Man's Pride 3 – None Shall Escape The Judgement Of The Almighty ... CD
Studio One/Soul Jazz (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $18.99 22.99
A fantastic collection of righteous work from the 70s years of Studio One – tracks from a time when the label was giving voice to some of the deeper cultural strands of Jamaican music, including a fair bit of Rastafarian-inspired material – presented here by both bigger names at the label, and some much more obscure artists who only recorded briefly at the time! The package may well be the deepest in this excellent series from Soul Jazz – and like the rest, it not only offers up some killer music, but does so in a way that really understands its subject – and presents the tunes with copious notes to bring greater meaning to the message. Titles include "Whey No Dead" by Glen Miller, "When The Time Comes" by Zoot Simms, "Wrong Doers" by Sugar Minott, "Jehovah" by The Nightingales, "It's No Secret" by Alphonso Stewart, "Conscious Dread Lock" by Horace Andy, "Dread Oppression" by The Mellodies, "Jah Jah Help Us" by Big Joe, "Can't Catch Me" by Wailing Souls, "Get Up & Try" by Lloyd Jones & The Super Natural Six, "Satisfaction" by Errol Dunkley, "Give Natty Dread Glory" by Mr Manchester, and "Selassie Bandman" by The Manchesters.
