✨✧ James BookerLost Paramount Tapes ... LP
Paramount/General General, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 19.98
A great little set from New Orleans legend James Booker – a previously unissued session from 1973 – recorded in LA with a great array of well-matched players! Booker's on piano, playing with a chunky, rough-edged groove – pretty funky at times, thanks especially to the great John Boudreaux on drums – best known for his classic lines on early work by Dr John! Other players on the date include Alvin Robinson on guitar, David Lastie on sax, and Jessie Hill on tambourine and vocals – and although the album never got the final studio polish it might have, were it released at the time, that aspect actually makes it great – and helps it retain all of its most rough-edged moments. Titles include "Hole In The Wall", "Tico Tico", "Feel So Bad", "Junco Partner", "Lah Tee Tah", "African Gumbo", "So Swell When You're Well", and "Goodnight Irene". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jim FordBig Mouth USA – The Unissued Paramount Album ... CD
Paramount/Bear Family (Germany), 1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A heck of a great record from Jim Ford – an early 70s country outsider whose early work hardly got any circulation at the time – but who's managed to go on to become the stuff of legend over the years! This set's got Jim at his best – maybe sounding even more country than on his two Capitol Records sessions, with slightly fuller production – but still that very individual, very distinct way of songwriting and putting over a tune – a quality that sparkles strongly on the album's batch of all-original material by Ford. A few tracks are reworks of numbers done on his unreleased second session for Capitol, taken in a very different way – and the whole thing has an offbeat vibe that's in the best left-of-Nashville mode of the early 70s. Titles include "He Turns My Radio On", "Family Tree", "Mixed Green", "I Call Her Baby", "Rising Sign", "Which Way", "If I Go Country", and "If There's A Will There's A Way". CD

AmbergrisAmbergris (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Paramount/Big Pink (South Korea), Early 70s. New Copy ... $18.99 22.99
A genre-busting batch of tunes from Ambergris – a group with styles that range from Memphis soul, to New York Latin, to some of the heavier sides of the underground rock scene of the time! The ensemble features Latin Soul maestro Larry Harlow on piano, organ, and percussion – working with a rock-based group that still has lots of jazzy touches on their instrumentation. Steve Cropper produced the set – but in New York, not Memphis – and the whole thing explodes with a rich range of musical influences, all bubbling together in one pot! Includes the funky rock tracks "Soul Food" and "Forget It I Got It", plus "Endless Night", "Sunday Lady", "Home Groan", "Chocolate Pudding", and "Gotta Find Her". CD

Sally EatonFarewell American Tour ... CD
Paramount/Early Dawn (Germany), 1970. New Copy ... $8.99
A really unusual album from singer Sally Eaton – not really her farewell tour of America, although the title also matches the subtle drama of the cover image and the way that Sally puts together the lyrics! The tunes are very unique, explained a bit by Eaton in the notes – which also include her horoscope chart, in case you want to figure her out – just the sort of touch that makes the whole thing a wonderfully distinct album, even during a period when American music was already overflowing with distinction! Arrangements are by Harold Wheeler and George Brackman – and if you know Wheeler's work, especially for the stage, you'll get a great idea of the vibe here – although Sally's mix of fragility and intelligence in her vocal approach is something that needs to be heard to be understood. Titles include "This Time Next Autumn", "Flowers In The Air", "Once Before You Go", "I Don't Want To Need You Anymore", "Reader & Advisor", and "Long Time Lover". CD

One of the great albums that Della Reese cut for ABC in the 60s – albums that seemed to have the singer at the most soulful side of her talents! Backings are by Peter De Angelis – who wrote the original "How Do You Keep From Cryin" – and other titles include "A Wilted Flower", "A Hundred Years From Today", "My Devotion", "Home", "After Loving You", and 'I Only Want A Buddy Not A Sweetheart".

✨✧ Tear GasPiggy Go Getter ... CD
Paramount/Esoteric (UK), 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An overlooked gem from Tear Gas – a Scottish group who never got the same sort of credit as some of their UK contemporaries at the start of the 70s – but who really made a few great records on their own! This set's got a strange mix of California currents with some of the post-psyche hard rock styles that were bubbling under in the new English generations – occasional hints of rural sensibilities mixed with tighter, fuzzier guitars – often set to lyrics that can be surprisingly thoughtful, and way more than just a filler between the fuzz. Titles include "Mirrors Of Sorrow", "Living For Today", "Lost Awakening", "Your Woman's Gone & Left You", "Night Girl", "I'm Fallin Far Behind", and "Witches Come Today". CD

✨✧ ImpressionsComplete A & B Sides – 1961 to 1968 ... CD
ABC/Universal (UK), Mid 60s. Used 2 CDs ... Just Sold Out!
The complete early-to-late 60s singles of Curtis Mayfield & The Impressions – some of the best Chicago soul of all time – and some of our favorite songs of the era, period! All of the great ABC-Paramount era singles are here, from the beautiful, post doo wop vocal gems with Curtis Mayfield's always emotional falsetto out front, to the innovative Johnny Pate arrangements, to the more strident and empowering (but no less catchy) groovers later on in the decade. Beautiful stuff, and nice to have in a package that features both the front and back sides of so many excellent 60s singles! 30 tracks on 2CDs, with the A's on disc one and the corresponding B's on disc two! Includes "Gypsy Woman", "As Long As You Love Me", "Grow Closer Together", "Can't You See", "Little Young Lover", "Never Let Me Go", "I'm So Proud", "I Made A Mistake", "Can't Satisfy", "This Must End", "It's Hard To Believe", "You Ought To Be In Heaven", "Don't Cry My Love", "Sometimes I Wonder" and much more!

Jackie & RoyGlory Of Love ... LP
ABC, 1956. Very Good+ ... $5.99
One of our favorite albums by the team of Jackie & Roy – a really special little set that features small combo backing, great tunes, and some of the best vocals of their early career! The album features Roy playing piano in a quartet with Barry Galbraith on guitar, Milt Hinton on bass, and Osie Johnson on drums – and there's a lightly jazzy feel to the whole set, one that really works well with the vocals from the pair. Jackie takes the lead on some numbers, but most have her and Roy singing duets – in that cool mix of scatting and lyrical interplay they do so well. Pretty groovy stuff – especially for the 50s – and titles include "Let's Get Away From It All", "You Inspire Me", "Where Did The Gentleman Go", "The Glory Of Love", "I Love You Real", and "Miz Margret".

✨✧ Karen DaltonIn My Own Time ... CD
Light In The Attic, 1971. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Enigmatic folk rock and soulful bluesy vocals from Karen Dalton – her legendary lost 1971 album that's credited with inspiring some the most idiosyncratic work by folk rock superstars and contemporary freak folk heroes alike! Karen was a fixture on the 60s NY folk scene – Dylan even gives her props in his Chronicles Vol 1 memoirs – but she rarely recorded. Her voice carries a huge Billie Holiday influence – but the delivery is wholly unique in her earthy folk phrasing, a real dip back into Harry Smith territory. Her guitar and banjo picking is strong, too! In My Own Time was recorded for Paramount at the end of 1970 and beginning of '71, with really rich and surprisingly soulful backing on an interesting selection of material written or popularized by Dylan & The Band, George Jones, Paul Butterfield, and even a folksy soul take on "When A Man Loves A Woman". Light In The Attic shines a huge light for this reverential reissue – pristinely remastered, with a thick booklet of liner notes by Lenny Kaye, Nick Cave and Devendra Banhart. Other tracks include "Something On Your Mind", "In My Own Dream", the traditional "Katie Cruel", "One Night Of Love" and "Are You Leaving For The Country". CD

✨✧ Morgana KingEverything Must Change ... LP
Muse, 1978. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
Sublime work from Morgana King – a set that continues the unique mellow vocal tradition begun on her Reprise sides of the 60s, and continued strongly well into the 70s on Paramount and other labels. The setting's somewhat spare here – a small group with guitar, electric piano, bass, drums, and percussion – all used nicely alongside King's vocals in a warm, pillowy quality that glides with a gentle groove and a great sense of grace and presence. The tracks are mosly mellow, and Morgana delivers those great King-styled vocals we love so much – an approach that's unlike any other singer we can think of, and which is right at home here. Titles include "Everything Must Change", "Give Me The Simple Life", "Love Song", "Out Of Nowhere", and "This Masquerade". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousEccentric Breaks & Beats ... CD
Numero, 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sample funk spun from records rescued by The Numero Group – edited by white label production crew Shoes without Numero's consent – which was then seized by Numero at the pressing plant, they bootlegged the bootleg, and release it here legitimately as Eccentric Breaks & Beats! The breakbeat funk aware will recognize the packaging for its parody of the Ultimate Breaks & Beats series – and however you feel about the politics of grey market music – creatively, this thing is a total win! Numero takes such impeccable care with their reissues, from the masters to the notes and packaging, we actually never really thought of the music as sample material – funky as the funkiest of their ouvre is! That's a testament to the curators of Numero, as the singers, players and producers of the original material are of paramount importance and we think of them individually when we listen to those compilations. Shoes, on the other hand (. . .or foot), heard potential for hypnotic, swirling psych funk blends and spins an undeniably creative set to suit. Titles include "Give Me Another Day", "Not Ready For School", "John Goodman Is Too Cool To Cry", "Peopleibrium", "Feel What Lies Behind You", "Saving Mr Billy's Soul", "Cosmic Clock", "Which Jesus Am I", "Everything" and more.

✨✧ Fern JonesGlory Road ... CD
Dot/Numero, 1959. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Southern hillbilly soul from Fern Jones – a minister, church singer and songwriter with a real feel for the secular shake of 50s Sun Records, honky tonk, and shout blues – a pure evangelical with a worldly groove! Fern worked the gospel circuit of tent and church shows for many, many years – but only recorded two albums, this one for Dot/Paramount. Fern sings in the torch country style of Patsy Cline, often with spare rockabilly-styled guitar and drums backbeat. This album is probably most noteworthy for the classic song "I Was There When It Happened" – co-written by Fern Jones and made famous by Johnny Cash. It's especially legendary because it was the only gospel number Sam Phillips allowed Cash to include on his first LP. But Fern's album is more than worthy of a late discovery – she's a true pioneer, fearlessly blending the Lord's work with the Devil's music – at a time when such poles were anathema for most artists, fans, and record labels alike! Original album tracks include "You Ain't Got Nuthin'", "I Do Believe", "Be Thankful You're You", "I Ain't Got Time", "Let Tomorrow Be" – plus the bonus tracks "When I Meet You", "By And By", "I Don't Care What The World May Do" and "This World Is Not My Home".
