✨✧ Maxine NightingaleRight Back Where We Started From ... LP
United Artists, 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Incredible Bongo Band/Ollie Nightingale/SylversThing With Two Heads ... LP
Pride, 1972. Used ... Out Of Stock
We're not sure how much of this music was actually used in the crazy movie about a man with two heads from two races (white and black, natch – and starring Rosie Grier and Ray Miland), but it was produced by Michael Viner (then head of the hip Pride/MGM soul imprint), and includes two great tracks from his Incredible Bongo Band ("Bongolia" and "Bongo Rock"), plus two Ollie Nightingale cuts ("Here I Am Again" and "May The Best Man Win") and two Sylver's cuts (including the break classic "Fools Paradise".) Sammy Davis Jr. and Jerry Butler contribute two other great tracks (Butler does "A Prayer", one of his best 70's tracks), and the whole thing's a groovy comp of stuff on the MGM/Pride label!

George AdamsNightingale (with bonus track) ... CD
Somethin Else/Blue Note (Japan), 1989. New Copy ... $16.99
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
(A "Somethin'else Since 1988" series SHM-CD pressing!)

Karl Henrik OusbackSomewhere & Somewhen ... LP
Nightingale (Sweden), 2018. New Copy ... $14.99
This might be the first we've heard as a leader from drummer Karl Henrik Ousback – but he's already won us over strongly with his crackling sense of energy on the set! In some way, Ousback's almost working in a Jazz Messengers mode of the modern Swedish scene – as his group features heavyweights like Jonas Kullhammar on tenor, Hakan Brostrom on alto, and Ludvib Berghe on piano – all guided by Ousback's direction on the kit, in a set of tracks that often swing with a straight-ahead hardbop mode! Karl Henrik wrote all the tunes, and they're some mighty fresh numbers – and it's especially great to hear Kullhammar's tenor in this setting – even though he and Brostrom each play on three different pieces each, and never at the same time. Titles include "Restaurang Wollmar", "Blues For Ludi", "Bem Te Vi", "Barnkalas", "Chaconne", and "Inclinations". LP, Vinyl record album

Michael FranksBurchfield Nines ... LP
Warner, 1978. Near Mint- ... $3.99
Great songs, great vocals, great instrumentation, and another late 70s classic from Michael Franks – one of the few mainstream masters of understatement in his generation! As on all his best albums, the style here is a subtle blend of jazz and pop with a bit of a Brazilian inspiration – kind of a more mainstream take on styles that Bob Dorough and Blossom Dearie had first put forth, with all the sort of hip songwriting that sort of reference might imply. Deodato's at the helm of the arrangements here – keeping things lean and clean, and using key contributions from players like Leon Pendarvis, John Tropea, Steve Gadd, and Bud Shank to flesh out the jazzier side of Franks' sound. Titles include "Wrestle A Live Nude Girl", "In Search Of The Perfect Shampoo", "Vivaldi's Song", "Dear Little Nightingale", "When The Cookie Jar Is Empty", "A Robinsong", and "Meet Me In The Deerpark".

Shelly Manne & His MenShelly Manne & His Men At The Blackhawk Vol 4 ... LP
Contemporary, 1960. Near Mint- ... $49.99
Classic hardbop from the west coast – a set of live recordings done at the Black Hawk jazz club in San Francisco at the end of the 50s, featuring Shelly Manne at the head of a group that includes the great Joe Gordon on trumpet! Tracks are longer, livelier, and have a lot more solo room and spontaneity than Manne's usual albums from the time – and the rest of the group include Richie Kamuca on tenor sax, Victor Feldman on piano, and Monty Budwig on bass. Tracks on this fourth volume include "Cabu", "Just Squeeze Me", and "Nightingale". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Oscar PetersonTristeza – On Piano ... CD
MPS (Japan), 1970. Used Gatefold ... $16.99
A wonderful set of laidback tracks from Peterson – featuring a good mix of tunes from Brazilian sources, soundtracks, and a few nice 60s pop numbers! The group here features Sam Jones on bass and Bob Durham on drums – and while the album might have sparkled a bit more with some added arrangements – Peterson's in an expansive mode that makes the spare trio setting still groove with enough of a flair to keep our ears interested. Titles include "Tristeza", "Nightingale", "Triste", "Watch What Happens", "Down Here On The Ground", and "Fly Me To The Moon". CD

✨✧ Wally StottLondon Souvenir – A Musical Souvenir Of London Town (with bonus tracks) ... CD
El (UK), 1958. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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.

✨✧ Mel TormeEvening With Mel Torme ... CD
Concord, 1996. Used ... Out Of Stock
A nice little live set from Mel Torme – recorded for a special A&E TV show, but done with a really classic small combo format! Mel's a bit less overstated than on some of the previous Concord live dates – swinging easily with trio backing from Mike Renzi on piano, John Letham on bass, and Donny Osborne on drums – almost in a way that recalls some of his famous live dates of the 50s. Titles include "Everytime We Say Goodbye", "Stardust", "Love For Sale", "A Nightingale Sang In Berkeley Square", "Pick Yourself Up", "Three Little Words", and "Just One Of Those Things/On Green Dolphin Street".

✨✧ VariousSoulsville USA – A Celebration Of Stax (3CD set) ... CD
Stax/Craft, 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
It's been almost 60 years since the Stax Records label forever changed the face of American soul music – and we can think of no better way to celebrate than by dipping into this well-chosen batch of 60 classic tracks from the label's glory days! The whole Stax groove is here – from the early roots of Memphis soul, to the label's breakout crossover moment in the 60s, to their new sense of pride and power in the post-1968 years – all wrapped up in a super-tight 3CD set, without any filler at all! The set moves in roughly chronological order – and covers both the ballads and the groovers, the funky moments and more sophisticated sounds – on titles that include "Jody's Got Your Girl & Gone" by Johnnie Taylor, "Fool In Love" by The Veltones, "Big Bird" by Eddie Floyd, "Private Number" by Judy Clay & William Bell, "I Got A Sure Thing" by Ollie & The Nightingales, "Hey You Get Off My Mountain" by The Dramatics, "Starting All Over Again" by Mel & Tim, "Hearsay" by Soul Children, "Dedicated To The One I Love" by The Temprees, "After Laughter" by Wendy Rene, "Walking The Dog" by Rufus Thomas, "You Don't Miss Your Water" by William Bell, "Tramp" by Otis & Carla, "Walk On By" by Isaac Hayes, "Just Keep On Loving Me" by Johnnie Taylor & Carla Thomas, "What A Man" by Linda Lynell, and "Your Good Thing Is About To End" by Mable John.

✨✧ VariousTo The Outside Of Everything – A Story Of UK Post-Punk 1977 to 1981 (5CD set) ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 5CD ... Out Of Stock
Great sounds from some of our favorite years of the British scene – those moments right after punk first exploded, and a generation of young English artists took off in so many different musical directions! The era's been labeled as post-punk, but what makes it really unique is that the label hardly does the music justice – as the time had such a rich array of sounds and styles, it would be impossible to sum of the vibe in just a few short words! There's definitely some punk elements in the music, but there's also electronic moments, sweeter songs, noisy bits, compressed prog inspirations, and even some occasional witty elements – with songwriting that's really stood the test of time over the years. There have been other collections of post-punk work over the years, but we've never seen a package like this – as the 5CD set features 111 tracks in all, packaged inside a book-style cover that's overflowing with notes and images – all with a track selection that includes lots of lost gems. In other words, even if you're like us, and already love this period, you'll still find plenty of greatness here – as the whole thing's balanced well enough to please both newcomers and longtime collectors. Includes work by Dif Juz, Glaxo Babies, The Homosexuals, Ultravox, Swell Maps, Clock DVD, Maximum Joy, Section 25, The Cravats, Native Hipsters, Josef K, Art Objects, The Passions, Big In Japan, Fischer-Z, Family Fodder, Girls At Our Best, Ludus, Boots For Dancing, In Camera, The Disco Zombies, Medium Medium, Alternative TV, The Nightingales, My Captains, Five Or Six, Steve Diggle, Dance Chapter, Fire Engines, Spoon Fazer, and many others!

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!

VariousStax Singles Vol 4 – Rarities & Best Of The Rest (6CD set) ... CD
Stax/Craft, New Copy 6CD ... $59.99 79.99
An incredible package – and one that goes way farther, and way deeper than any of the previous volumes of Stax/Volt Records singles! This 4th volume is kind of a correction/addition to territory covered by the previous three – as CDs 1 to 3 of the collection go back to bring together all the wonderful b-sides for the singles that didn't appear on the other packages – really incredible work that's often more amazing than the bigger-name cuts on the a-side – as the tracks are often rougher, rawer, and a fair bit more edgey too! Then, CDs 4 & 5 do a great job of looking at some of the rock and other non-soul material cut by the Stax labels – with a focus on material that came out on the Hip, Enterprise, and Ardent labels – followed by CD 6, which features all the excellent gospel material issued by Stax on the labels Gospel Truth and Chalice. The whole thing's got a hell of a lot of music in one sleek package – 145 tracks on 6CDs, with a big booklet of notes. Artists include Shirley Walton, Linda Lynell, Jeanne & The Darlings, Soul Children, Shack, The Nightingales, John Gary Williams, Hot Sauce, Ilana, Lee Sain, Green Brothers, Prince Conley, The Astors, Gorgeous George, Karen Casey, The Caboose, Clark Sullivan, Chuck Boris, Connie Eaton, Paris Pilot, The Goodees, The Cheques, Poor Little Rich Kids, Lonnie Duvall, Dixie Nightingales, Louise McCord, Rance Allen, Stars Of Virginia, and many more!

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