Big MaybelleBig Maybelle – The Okeh Sessions (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Okeh/Pure Pleasure (UK), Mid 50s. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $13.99 44.99
A bit blues, a bit jazz – and a singer with a style unto her own – the amazing Big Maybelle, one of the greatest artists to record for Okeh Records in the 50s! This well-done collection pulls together every single Maybelle recorded for the R&B powerhouse back in the day – a motherlode of great work that easily puts her right up there with Lavern Baker or Ruth Brown as one of the great female singers of the 50s. The package features a whopping 22 tracks in all – including many bits that get lost between the tracks in some of the too-sifted collections of her work from the time. Titles include "Maybelle's Blues", "Hair Dressin Women", "My Big Mistake", "Ain't No Use", "One Monkey Don't Stop No Show", "So Good To My Baby", "Gabbin Blues", "You'll Never Know", and "New Kind Of Mambo".

Screamin' Jay HawkinsCow Fingers & Mosquito Pie ... CD
Okeh/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), Mid 50s. New Copy ... $11.99 13.99
This is the real deal for Screamin Jay Hawkins – the seminal 50s recordings done for the Okeh label, all of which are a lot harder and heavier than some of his later work! The format is simple R&B, but Screamin Jay brings a heck of a lot of himself to the sessions – singing in a raspy, raw sort of way that really lives up to his name – and hitting a variety of fresh and funky subjects in the lyrics – hardly the usual stuff of 50s bluesy recordings! Titles include the classic "I Put A Spell On You", plus 20 more tracks that include "Yellow Coat", "You Made Me Love You", "Little Demon", "Hong Kong", "Alligator Wine", "Person To Person", "Take Me Back To My Boots", "Darling Please Forgive Me", "Orange Colored Sky", "There's Something Wrong With You", and "Frenzy".

Walter JacksonIt's All Over ... LP
Okeh, 1964. Very Good+ ... $16.99
60s Chicago soul doesn't get any better than this – a sublime debut from the legendary Walter Jackson – done in a smoothly sophisticated style that set a whole new standard for the genre! The record steps off nicely from some of the earliest work by Jerry Butler and The Impressions – blending Chicago soul with more adult-styled orchestrations from Riley Hampton – at a level that has Jackson sitting beautifully across a number of different modes at once – still appealing to the kids with the uptown groovers on the set, but also reaching to an older crowd with the beautiful ballads and heartbreaking love songs. The sound is incredible – easily one of the most fully realized full-length soul records on the Okeh label – and titles include "What Would You Do", "There Goes That Song Again", "I Don't Want To Suffer", "That's What Mama Say", and "It's All Over". LP, Vinyl record album

One of the few great sides cut for Okeh by the legendary Vibrations – and one of the hardest! The group has a nice strong Northern sound on most of the cuts, with storming vocals that alternate harmony parts and raw hard solos. Uptempo groovers include "End Up Crying", "Talkin 'Bout Love", "Watusi Time", "Ain't Love That Way", and "Sloop Dance". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VibrationsNew Vibrations ... LP
Okeh, 1966. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
Killer Okeh soul by this great group from the 60s! The record covers both sides of The Vibrations' bag – from mellow moody vocal group standards, to uptempo groovers – of the sort that have always made the group a favorite with the Northern Soul scene! The album's a nice departure from the group's earlier work, as it shows them really locking in some great harmonies on the mellower cuts – but still able to really let loose when they want to! Titles include great versions of the cuts "Secret Love" and "Everybody Loves A Lover" – plus the tracks "Soul A Go Go", "Gonna Get Along Without You Now", "Forgive & Forget", and "For Your Love".

✨✧ Major LanceBest Of Major Lance ... CD
Okeh/BGO (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Killer work from one of the best 60s soul talents of the Windy City! Major Lance was one of Chicago's first big soul stars – crossing over big on the charts with huge hits for the Okeh label during the early and mid 60s – thanks to some great tunes penned by Curtis Mayfield, and stellar production from the legendary Carl Davis! In a way, Lance's sound was a key culmination of the modes that had been bubbling under in the hometown indies like Vee Jay and Chess – taken slightly to the next level, and brought more into the mainstream by Okeh. Many of the arrangements here are by the massive Johnnie Pate – who gives the record the same sort of brilliance as the best 60s Impressions work on ABC – and the titles include "Ain't No Soul", "Investigate", "Um Um Um Um Um Um", "The Monkey Time", "Wait Till I Get You In My Arms", "Delilah", "Rhythm", "Hey Little Girl", "It's The Beat", "The Matador", "Ain't It A Shame", "You Don't Want Me No More", "You Belong To Me My Love", and "Sometimes I Wonder".

Annie LaurieSince I Fell For You – The Essential Annie Laurie ... CD
Jasmine (UK), Late 40s/1950s. New Copy ... $13.99
A great run of music from Annie Laurie – not a New Orleans native, but a singer who helped forge the Crescent City sound in the band of Paul Gayten – before then moving onto work on a whole host of other labels! Laurie was a big act back in her day – and has the dynamic flexibility of a singer like Dinah Washington – easily at home with jazz, jump blues, and other modes too – as you'll hear in this fantastic collection of work! Tracks appeared on the DeLuxe, Okeh, Regal, Ritz, Cosmo, and other labels – brought together here in a batch of 30 tracks that includes "Lonesome & Blue", "Get Me Some Money", "Since I Fell For You", "Rockin & Rollin Again", "It Must Be You", "Annie's Blues", "Cuttin Out", "Stop Talkin & Start Walkin", "It's Gonna Come Out In The Wash Someday", "Hold On To What You Got", "Nobody's Going To Hurt You", "Please Honey Don't Go", "I'll Never Be Free", "My Rough & Ready Man", and "I Feel So Right Tonight".

✨✧ Walter JacksonGood To See You ... LP
Chi Sound/United Artists, 1978. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sophisticated soul from the great Walter Jackson – one of the best voices ever to come out of the Chicago soul scene, and a wonderful interpreter of just about any material! The record's got some wonderful arrangements by Riley Hampton – who worked with Jackson on his earlier sessions for Okeh – and the record recasts Walter as a smooth modern singer with an adult approach, kind of in the same style as Teddy Pendergrass in the late 70s. Includes "Good To See You", "We Could Fly", "Open Up Your Heart", "If I Had My Way", "I Won't Ever Remember Losing You", and "Time". Not nearly as sublime as his work for Okeh, but still not a bad batch of tracks! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Candace LoveNever In A Million Years – Rare Soul Recordings ... CD
Aquarius/Essential, Late 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Rare female soul from Candace Love – a singer who only recorded a handful of singles in her career, which are all collected here to make the first-ever full album of her work! Candace sung on the Chicago scene of the late 60s – and these tunes definitely have all the best elements the Windy City sound had to offer at the time – particularly that nicely-stepping midtempo groove you'd know from labels like Brunswick or Okeh, given a slight indie spin, as these tracks were all done for the smaller Aquarius label. Production and songwriting is by Fred Bridges, Ric Williams, and Bobby Eaton – and titles include "Peace Lovin Man", "Something's Gonna Happen", "Love Transplant", "Wonderful Night", "Uh Uh Boy That's A No No", "That's How It Is", "Never In A Million Years", and "Heaven & Hell" – plus a few takes on "I Want To Get Back".

✨✧ James Brandon Lewis & Chad TaylorLive In Willisau ... CD
Intakt (Switzerland), 2020. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Some of the boldest work we've ever heard from tenorist James Brandon Lewis – an artist you might know from his bigger label recordings for Okeh/Sony, but who sounds completely unbridled here in the company of the great drummer Chad Taylor! Taylor's a player who can step outside strongly, yet still find this inherent sense of swing – and that balance works beautifully alongside the tenor of Lewis, and seems to encourage him to take some great chances throughout the set – with some especially great moments of drums and tenor that almost evoke the way that David Murray or Sonny Rollins might handle such a performance! A really revelatory set – and a great reminder of Taylor's genius, too – with selections that include "Watakushi No Sekai", "Matape", "Come Sunday", "Imprints", "Twenty Four", "Radiance", and "Under/Over The Rainbow".

Liberation Hall, 1900s/1910s/1920s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
For decades, Dr Demento has given us wild and weird records from the underground of the vinyl LP and 45rpm single – but this set goes back ever further, and brings together really unusual singles from the first thirty years of the 20th Century – tracks all pulled from 78rpm shellac, and showing that even at the start, people were dedicated to making some pretty unusual little sounds on record! The tunes are a mixture of vocal numbers in many styles, but also include some pieces that use sound effects, almost like a short audio cartoon – all pretty darn short, but all pretty darn goofy too. Titles include "Oh You Candy Kid" by Ada Jones, "Uncle Josh Buys An Automobile" by Cal Stewart, "The Little Ford Rambled Right Along" by Billy Murray, "Mister Gallagher & Mister Shean" by Ed Gallagher & Al Shean, "You Must Come Over" by Savoy & Brennan, "Stop Your Tickling Jack" by Harry Lauder, "I'm Wise" by Clance Vance, "Reuben Haskin's Ride On A Cyclone Auto" by Len & Harry Spencer, "Tale Of The Cheese" by Murray K Hill, and the famous "Okeh Laughing Record" – a record that just features people laughing!

The package brings together a whopping 30 tracks from Johnson's years at Okeh Records, and runs up to some sweet sides for Philips as well – tracing a great evolution from the late R&B years up to some deeper soul recorded at Fame Studios – a really rich journey in soul music, put together with the usual Bear Family love of historical details! Plenty of notes come with the package – tying Roy to other work with Piano Red (aka Dr Feelgood) – and titles include "Mister Moonlight", "Sea Breeze", "Black Pepper Will Make You Sneeze", "I'm So Happy", "Busybody", "Love Birds", "When A Guitar Plays The Blues", "Plowing Playboy", "Cheer Up Daddy's Comin Home", "Boogaloo #3", "Can You Handle It", "It's All Over", "Stanback Headache Powder", and "She Put The Whammy On Me".

One Der Ful/Charly (UK), 1960s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Seminal soul from one of Chicago's greatest labels in the 60s – the One-Der-Ful/Mar-V-Lus imprints, plus tracks from related Toddlin Town too – home to some of the best indie work at the time! The quality here is right up there with the best you'd hear from Chess, Okeh, or Brunswick in the 60s – no surprise, since the pair of labels shared lots of similar talents with the bigger companies – as well as session men, songwriters, and producers too! The full scope of Chicago soul is really covered here – upbeat groovers for the dancefloor, heartfelt ballads with great harmonies, and some of the harder-edged bluesy numbers that really helped put One-Der-Ful on the map! There's also some key early examples of funk – proof that in the 60s, Chicago was one of the hippest scenes in the world – and the set comes with 2 CDs, nestled in a hardback booklet of notes and photos – with a whopping 50 tracks in all. Titles include "Tired Of Being Lonely" by The Sharpees, "Without You" by The Ulti-Mations, "That's How It Is" by Otis Clay, "Keep On Dancin" by Alvin Cash, "The Funky Judge" by Bull & The Matadors, "I Get A Groove" by Thomas East & The Fabulous Playboys, "Damper Down" by Bobby Davis, "The Town I Live In" by McKinley Mitchell, "Come Back Home" by Beny Turner, "Master Key" by Harold Burrage, "If I Could Live My Life All Over" by Dorothy Prince, "You Told A Lie" by Johnny Sayles, "New Girl" by The Accents, and "Don't You Worry" by Joe & Mack.

Atlantic/Water, 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The only album ever issued by this very groovy group – a quartet who wandered from Philly to San Francisco in the late 60s – where they clearly picked up the right sort of energy to let their freak flag fly! Yet these guys aren't totally Bay Area, either – as they've got more of the east coast roots that echo their start in the Philly scene a few years before – almost that mix of tightness and hipness that graced some of the best Long Island groups who were finding their way into New York during the same generation. There's plenty going on here – especially some nice songwriting, and a way of appreciating influences from blues and soul music – yet never coming across as a blues rock band at all. Titles include "Baby Leroy", "Over The Hill", "Ship Of The Future", "West Wind", "Royal Fool", "Lebanese Packhorse", and "Smokehouse". CD
