Walter JacksonOkeh Recordings Vol 1 – It's All Over (with previously unreleased tracks) ... CD
Okeh/Kent (UK), Early/Mid 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
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". CD adds in 10 more bonus tracks – most of which are previously unissued – making for an amazing collection that's one of the first time that Jackson's work at Okeh is finally getting its due! Bonus titles include "The Heartbreak Road", "Anything Can Happen", "Blue Rose", "Starting Tomorrow", "Don't Play With Love", "It's Hard To Believe", "You Gotta Give", and "Tell The World". CD

Ahmad JamalLegendary Okeh & Epic Recordings (Piano Scene Of Ahmad Jamal/Ahmad Jamal Trio) ... CD
Epic/Legacy, Early/Mid 50s. Used ... $4.99
The long-overdue reissue of some of Ahmad Jamal's first recordings – early sides for the Okeh and Columbia labels, all tunes that would go on to have a huge influence on the use of the piano in jazz! All tracks on the set were recorded in the early 50s with Jamal's great drumless trio that featured Ray Crawford on guitar and either Eddie Calhoun or Israel Crosby on bass – the latter of whom is tremendous here, working as a player who really helped set his instrument free from its traditional role in jazz. The trio's blend of guitar, bass, and piano is completely unique – extremely inventive at both a rhythmic and melodic level, as each instrument often fills both roles equally well – dancing around with an internal groove that emerges outwardly as an especially fluid approach to the tune. If you've never heard Jamal at his early best like this, the CD's gotta be one of the best places we can think of to start – as it features 21 titles in all, all beautifully remastered with impeccable sound that goes far beyond even our original albums! Titles include "Poinciana", "Black Beauty", "Something To Remember You By", "Pavanne", "Perfida", "Rica Pulpa", "Old Devil Moon", "Autumn Leaves", "Ahmad's Blues", and "Aki & Ukthay". CD

VariousOkeh Rhythm & Blues ... LP
Okeh/Epic, Mid 50s/1982. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $9.99 14.99
Essential 2LP set of rare R&B material from the legendary Okeh label – known to many as one of the 50's best labels for the genre! Sure, you'll find a few hits on here – like Screamin Jay Hawkins' "I Put A Spell On Your" – but the real nice bits are the obscurer tracks, like "Please Say You Want Me" by The Schoolboys, "Dumplins" by Doc Bagby, "Peanuts" by Little Joe, "Say Hey (The Willie Mays Song)" by The Treneirs, and "Baby You're My Only Love", a real early one from Billy Stewart. Great stuff throughout, and a nice set of notes. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Walter JacksonBest Of Walter Jackson – Welcome Home – The Okeh Years ... CD
Legacy/Epic, Mid 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Killer work from the legendary Walter Jackson – one of the most unique soul music voices of the 60s! The set features some of the best moments from Jackson's key years at Okeh Records on the Chicago scene – material cut with great help from Carl Davis and Curtis Mayfield, and easily some of the most mature soul from the Windy City (or any city) at the time! The CD's a great mix of his hits and some of his lesser-known cuts – and all the tracks provide an excellent portrait of Walter's unique "Iceman" style of polished, heartbreaking soul. We can't say enough about these tracks, and we feel that songs like "Funny (Not Much)", "Speak Her Name", "My Ship Is Coming In", and "It's All Over" are some of the finest soul material ever to come out of the 60's! Great stuff, and with a sound that will blow your mind! CD

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.

Titles include "Maybelle's Blues", "New Kind Of Mambo", "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", "The Other Night", and "Such A Cutie".

Major LanceRhythm Of Major Lance ... LP
Okeh/Columbia (UK), Mid 1960s. Very Good+ ... $79.99
A UK-only set – featuring 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 "Um Um Um Um Um Um", "The Monkey Time", "Rhythm", "Hey Little Girl", "The Matador", "Pride & Joy", "Sweet Music", "It Ain't No Use", "I'm The One", "Gotta Right To Cry", and "Please Don't Say No More". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Branford MarsalisIn My Solitude – Live At Grace Cathedral ... CD
Okeh, 2014. Used ... $3.99
Branford Marsalis in a wonderful solo setting – a record that has the reedman playing in the open, echoey space of San Francisco's Grace Cathedral – a famous site that's also hosted legendary performances by Duke Ellington, Cal Tjader, and Vince Guaraldi! Branford blows both tenor and soprano sax – improvising on compositions, and blowing fresh improvisations himself – with a soulful sound and style that really open up our understanding of Marsalis as a musician – and which definitely has us reexamining his work all over again. The sound is haunting – especially the soprano passages, which have these really edgey tones at times – and titles include "Who Needs It", "The Moment I Recall Your Face", "Blues For One", "I'm So Glad We Had This Time Together", and CPE Bach's "Sonata In A Minor For Oboe Solo" – as well as four "Improvisation" tracks.

Brunswick/Solid (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... $10.99 14.99
A really breakout moment for The Artistics – and the start of a really sublime run with the great Brunswick Records! The group had already broken a bit on Okeh a few years before – securing a top spot on the Chicago scene with their bouncy northern soul groove – a love of rhythm that made them as much a favorite on dancefloors as they were with fans of harmony soul. But on this sweet set, things come together even better than before – thanks to strong leads by singer Marvin Smith, who brings a real sense of personality to the group's harmonies – and wonderful Brunswick studio help that includes Sonny Sanders arrangements and Carl Davis production. The whole thing's wonderful – and tracks include the hit "I'm Gonna Miss You", plus "On & On", "Sweeter Than Sugar", "Hope We Have", "Girl I Need You", "You're Wonderful", and "Love Song".

Ronn/Kent (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... $11.99 16.99
Beautiful and underappreciated 70s soul from Ted Taylor from his stint with Ronn Records – great series of singles and slew of excellent unissued tracks! Ted was a huge talent with a soaring voice, better remembered for his earlier work at Okeh, but still in incredible form and served well by the 70s style southern soul sound! It includes some early 70s singles that would have sounded at home on Hi Records, some mid 70s duets with Little Johnny Taylor, and a treasure trove of newly unearthed numbers. Titles include4 "Farewell", "Call The House Doctor", "Sweet Lovin' Pair", "A Lick And A Promise", "Why Do I Have To Suffer", "Got To Have A Woman", "She's Got A Munchy Tunchy" "Cry It Out Baby", "Funky Ghetto" and more with Little Johnny Taylor, "Cummins Prison Farm", "Let Me Fix Up Your Feelings" and more. 24 tracks in all.

Curtom, 1971. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Although Major Lance scored biggest for Okeh in the 60s, he cut some excellent work for Curtom in later years! This single features two great little tracks written and produced by Curtis Mayfield – both taken in a style that's a lot like Curtis, but with Major's harder vocals coming into play a bit more. On "Little Young Lover", this style is especially pronounced – and it takes away the sweetness that the song might have if Curtis was singing on it. 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Walter JacksonGood To See You ... LP
Chi Sound/United Artists, 1978. Near Mint- ... 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
(Includes UA inner sleeve. Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ Walter JacksonI Want To Come Back As A Song ... LP
Chi Sound, 1977. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
It's an unfortunate fact that within a few years of stating the reincarnation-oriented title of this record, Walter would sadly have passed away, making the issue of "coming back as a song" even more pertinent. This record's one of his best of the Chisound years – and features a modern soul updating of Walter's Iceman style – done here with help from Riley Hampton, who worked on most of Walter's best work at Okeh. The record's got a nice Teddy Pendergrass sort of sound, with a good sophisticated male vocal approach – and includes the cuts "If You Walked Away", "Stay A While With me", "I've Never Been To Me", "What Would You Do", and a remake of "It's All Over". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bukka WhiteParchman Farm ... LP
Columbia, 1940. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
The complete Vocalion and Okeh Records 78s of the great Bukka White – a blues singer who was maybe a few years later than some of the first big stars from the Mississippi scene – but who's gone onto have a legacy and impact that will last for years to come! Bukka's got a very strong touch on the guitar – a rhythmic strumming that feels like it's going to tear the instrument apart, and which carves out a rough groove for the songs – which only get even better once he opens up with his unusual sense of vocal inflection! The package was created at a time when Bukka White was enjoying a huge revival of interest, and is still one of the best representations of his work – with titles that include "Pinebluff Arkansas", "Sleepy Man Blues", "Parchman Farm Blues", "When Can I Change My Clothes", "Black Train Blues", "Good Gin Blues", "Fixin To Die", "Bukka's Jitterbug Swing", "District Attorney Blues", and "Special Streamline".

✨✧ Walter JacksonFeeling Good ... LP
Chi Sound, 1976. Sealed ... Out Of Stock
The first of six "comeback" albums that this great Chicago soul singer cut during his second wave of recording during the late 70s! Walter had originally done some amazing work with the great Carl Davis at the Okeh label during the mid 60s – and this album marks a return to their collaboration – this time at Davis' own Chi-Sound subsidiary of 20th Century Records. Jackson here takes all the smooth sophistication of his early days, and transforms himself into an adult singer of soul songs – taking a route similar to that travelled by singers like Jerry Butler or Lou Rawls at the same time. Like Rawls, the style doesn't always work – but when it does, it's great. Titles include "Love Is Lovelier", "Words", "Too Shy To Say", "Please Pardon Me (You Remind Me Of A Friend)", "Love Woke Me Up This Morning", and a remake of "Welcome Home". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ TreniersGo Go Go – A Proper Introduction To The Treniers ... CD
Proper (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Amazing early work from The Treniers – a hip vocal combo that wound up to be one of the raunchiest in 50s R&B! The set goes farther than any other collection of the group's early work that we've seen – in that it features a whopping 26 tracks, pulled both from their recordings for the Mercury and Okeh label – spanning years that run from 1947 to 1953, and which show them as incredibly witty, goofy, and hard-rocking even during their first years in the studio! The titles alone should give you a great idea of the playful feel of the tracks – and they include "Plenty Of Money", "Poon-Tang", "Rockin Is Our Bizness", "Hi-Yo Silver", "Rock Bottom", "I'm Going Back To My Convertible Cadillac", "Go Go Go", "Why Did You Get So High Shorty", "It's A Quiet Town", and "Oooh! Looka There Ain't She Pretty". CD

✨✧ VariousCelebration Of Soul Vol 2 – The Chi-Sound Records Collection ... CD
Chi Sound/Varese, Late 1970s/Early 1980s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful look at the later years of Chicago soul – a collection that brings together work from Chi-Sound Records, the imprint formed by producer Carl Davis after years of working with Windy City artists on labels like Okeh and Brunswick! Both Davis and the Chicago scene were reaching a new level of sophistication by the time Chi-Sound got its start – and the label took a keen cue from the Philly scene, and had its artists move into a broader range of work than just chart-bound singles – much more adult-oriented material that reflected the maturity of the artists, and the growth of an older middle class market for contemporary soul. As you'll hear on this set, Davis had a great way with a smooth tune – taking many older artists and allowing them to either re-record classic hits, or move towards material they wouldn't have been allowed to touch in earlier years. And as before, Davis also had a good ear for up-and-comers too – and exposed a few key acts on Chi-Sound during the short time the imprint was around. Titles on Volume 2 include "Maybe I'm Mistaken" and "Come To My Party" by The Impressions, "Hot On A Thing" and "Oh Girl" by The Chi-Lites, "Does She Have A Friend" and "Tomorrow I May Not Feel The Same" by Gene Chandler, "Passionate Breezes" and "I Touched A Dream" by The Dells, "It's All Over" and "And If I Had" by Walter Jackson, "Especially For You" by Manchild, and "I Still Love You" by Windy City.

✨✧ Screamin Jay HawkinsBecause You're Mine – Hits & Rarities ... CD
Sunset Blvd, Late 50s/1960s/1970s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A really big, really unusual collection of work from the legendary Screamin Jay Hawkins – one that's probably a lot more "rarities" than "hits" in the title – as the set features material recorded for a variety of different small labels, over a pretty large span of time! The track list is a nice complement to some of the more mainstream collections of Screamin Jay's work – as the titles here still have that raw R&B power that made Hawkins such an amazing force in music, from the early R&B years on up through the underground of soul in the 60s and 70s – with a range here that's a nice change from some of his overplayed spooky classics. 2CD set features 29 tracks in all – and titles include "Portrait Of A Man", "Just Don't Care", "Armpit No 6", "Please Try To Understand", "I Is", "Baptize Me In Wine", "Nitty Gritty", "Pauline", "$10,000 Lincoln Continental", "What A Price I Must Pay", "Live Love Or Die", "Well I Tried", and "I Hear Voices" – plus two unusual takes on "I Put A Spell On You", one recorded before the famous 50s version on Okeh, the other from 1973.

✨✧ SheppardsStubborn Heart/How Do You Like It ... 7-inch
Mirwood/Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A rare Cali outing for The Sheppards – and a single that soars with all the amazing vocal as their other Chicago work! There's nothing stubborn about the groove on the a-side – as the tune has this stepping vibe that's totally great, one that's offset by really dynamic vocal work from the group – but in a way that also still has them keeping their cool! "How Do You Like It" begins with the sort of romping Chi-soul vibe you'd hear on mid 60s Brunswick or Okeh material – and the Sheppards follow suit with some tremendous harmonies that really make the most of the tune! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Checker, Early 60s. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
Hard grooving early work by The Vibrations – recorded before their sides at Okeh, with a style of rough-hewn soul that's very much in keeping with their hit "The Watusi". The album's got plenty of great numbers, very much in a Chicago dance mode of the 60s – and titles include "People Say", "Wallflower", "So Blue", "Doing The Slop", "Serenade Of The Bells", "People Say", and "Cave Man".

✨✧ All That JazzGhibli Jazz Live ... LP
P-Vine (Japan), 2011. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A nicely expanded version of the great Ghibli Jazz concept – delivered here in a live setting that's maybe got even more brilliance than the studio albums! There's a dynamic sense of presentation right from the start, partly the sense of the concert space in the mix, partly the energy from the crowd – and if anything, these tunes are more groovers than the previous studio albums – and topped with really great vocals from Yuriko Kuwahara. Titles include "Tonari No Totoro", "Kaze No Toorimichi", "Mononokehime", "Itsumo Nandodemo", "Jinsei No Merry Go Round", and "Umi No Mieru Machi". LP, Vinyl record album
