Deep PurpleFireball (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1971. Used ... $13.99
A definite fireball from the legendary early lineup of Deep Purple – a record that has the group soaring to the skies in a blazing blend of guitars, keyboards, bass, and drums! A set like this is seminal for understanding just how far rock music stepped in just a few short years – because back in the mid 60s, these guys might have been slavishly laying out blues riffs, or trying to copy their American heroes – but those roots are completely subsumed in the band's own style, and delivered with a dexterity that's truly amazing – a brash, balls-out quality that should be given everything it's trying to claim – because a record like this doesn't need to answer to anyone! Titles include "Fireball", "No No No", "Anyone's Daughter", "Demon's Eye", "The Mule", and "No One Came". CD

✨✧ Purple ImagePurple Image ... LP
Tidal Waves, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A key album in the post-Hendrix tradition of funky black rock – and the only album ever recorded by Cleveland's Purple Image! The approach here follows nicely in the same territory worked by Funkadelic and Fugi in the early days – a heady, fuzzed-up blend of trippy guitars, heavy rhythms, and some nice sweeter soul touches – all in a mode that swings nicely between really messed-up tunes, and others with a lighter, more soul-based approach. Side two of the record is dominated by the great jamming track "Marching to a Different Drummer" – easily enough to rival anything on Funkadelic's Free Your Mind album – and other cuts include "Living In the Ghetto", "Why", "Lady", and "We Got To Pull Together".

BrainstoryBuck (clear with yellow & purple splatter vinyl pressing) ... LP
Big Crown, 2019. New Copy ... $18.99
A funky trio with a really unique sort of vibe – vocals that are somewhere in the sweet soul territory of the early 70s, set to spacious instrumentation that's got some nicely trippy touches! The core lineup features guitar, bass, and drums next to the harmonized vocals of Kevin and Tony Martin – but Leon "El" Michels produced the set, and also adds in a bit of keyboards – and the whole record really benefits from the open-ended sound he can bring to an affair of this nature! Things are never overdone, and these guys never try to sound too forcedly soulful – really finding the best qualities in their vocals, and reminding us that sometimes the right fit is the most important thing of all. Titles include "Beautyful Beauti", "Mnemophobia", "Sorry", "Reclaim", "Dead End", and "Breathe". LP, Vinyl record album

Purple/Cherry Red (UK), 1974. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $29.99
Roger Glover steps aside from Deep Purple – and delivers one of his strangest records of the 70s – an oddly glammy, hard rock interpretation of material from the children's book of the same name! The set actually scored a surprising hit with the very catchy "Love Is All" – which features Ronnie James Dio on vocals – and the set features Dio singing on a few other cuts, "Sitting In A Dream" and "Homeward" – then features Glover working with other singers who include Jimmy Helms on "Waiting", Eddie Hardin on "Sir Maximus Mouse", Tony Ashton on "Together Again", and Glenn Hughes on "Get Ready". Glover produced – and the whole thing is way cooler than you might expect! 2LP version features great bonus material – a full side of demos and alternate mixes of tracks from the record, plus the single-only "Little Chalk Blue" – and a second side that features selections from the Roger Glover Butterfly Ball radio special in 1974!

Dennis HerroldMystery Of Dennis Herrold – The Complete Imperial Recordings (purple vinyl 10 inch LP & CD) ... LP
Imperial/Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s. New Copy ... $34.99 39.99
A really cool package of work from one of the most obscure rockers to ever record for Imperial Records in the late 50s – the enigmatic Dennis Herrold, who only issued one single for the label at the time – presented here with the full work from his debut session, plus other material too! Herrold's a mighty sharp rocker – much more so than some of the pop acts on Imperial at the time – and he came to the label under the guidance of Dub Dickerson, who wrote all the tracks that Herrold sings – and who's also featured here on some related tracks too. The package is great – a cool colored vinyl 10" LP, a booklet of notes, and a bonus CD that features related tracks by Bob Luman, Warner Mack, Tony Wilson, and Justin Tubb – alongside Herrold tracks that include "Make With The Lovin", "You Arouse My Curiosity", "Don't Push Away", and "Hip Hip Baby".

Kuzu (Dave Rempis/Taqshi Dorji/Tyler Damon)Purple Dark Opal ... CD
Aerophonic, 2020. Used ... $8.99
A tremendous single improvisation by this very hip trio – Taqshi Dorji on guitar, Tyler Damon on drums, and Dave Rempis on alto, tenor, and baritone sax! The drums have this very resonant quality at times – almost acting with elements that make up for the lack of a bass at times – while the guitar moves through more abstract sonic textures that are maybe some of the sharpest elements in the set – as Rempis blows with a beautifully soulful vibe, and really helps balance the sound, and ground the whole thing with his amazing, never-ending sense of imagination! The set features the 55 minute piece "To The Quick" – recorded live at Sugar Maple in Milwaukee. CD

The classic Halloween novelty record! You might know the classic title cut – one of those tunes that never gets old, and which really blows away all the countless imitators over the years – but there's lots more here to discover, all in Bobby Pickett's cool mix of monster movie vocals and garagey rock and roll! Production is by the legendary Gary Paxton – who almost gives a Kim Fowley twist to some numbers – and in addition to "Monster Mash", titles include "Graveyard Shift", "Blood Bank Blues", "Monster Motion", "Bella's Bash" or the hair raising "Rabian The Fiendage Idol".

Prince1999 (180 gram purple vinyl pressing) ... LP
Warner, 1982. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $33.99 34.98
The record that forever put Prince on the map – a legendary set that took him from being an under-appreciated soul singer to a lasting pop music legend! Prince had been around for a few years before 1999 – but the double-length set was the first to really win over the masses to his genius – and still stands as one of the most perfect blends of soul, funk, and pop that we can ever think of – especially since the man himself pretty much put the whole thing together on his own! The set begins with the classic singles "Little Red Corvette" and "1999" – then soars into lots more gems that include "Let's Pretend We're Married", "Lady Cab Driver", "All The Critics Love U In New York", "International Lover", "DMSR", and "Delirious".

PrinceOne Nite Alone – Live (4LP purple vinyl pressing) ... LP
Sony/Legacy, 2002. New Copy 4LP ... $71.99 72.98
Wonderful live work from Prince – the only official concert album ever issued by the man during his life, and a great testament to the way that his genius kept on burning bright on stage – even when he wasn't always knocking it out of the park in the studio! There's a fair bit of material here from later years, but also some classics mixed into the set – and the work often emphasizes the jazzier side of Prince's style – partly through his evolved musicianship, but also in the way the tunes come together with an even more sophisticated vibe than the early years. Titles include "Rainbow Children", "Muse 2 The Pharoah", "Extraordinary", "One Nite Alone", "Wanna B Ur Lover", "Do Me Baby", "Diamonds & Pearls", "When U Were Mine", "Mellow", "1+1+1 Is 3", "Nothing Compares 2 U", and "Sometimes It Snows In April".

A dream of a record from Prince – up-close, intimate, and just the voice and piano promised in the title! As you'd guess from the setting, the record presents the mellower side of the man's mighty talents – but the whole thing is no less soulful than any of his previous records – and in fact maybe is even more so in the way that Prince lays down his vocals, with all these amazing inflections, long reaches, and very personal qualities throughout! Titles include "Pearls B4 The Swine", "Have A Heart", "Here On Earth", "One Nite Alone", "U're Gonna C Me", "Young & Beautiful", "Avalanche", "Objects In The Mirror", and "Arboretum".

PrincePurple Rain (2CD deluxe edition) ... CD
Warner, 1984. Used 2 CDs ... $11.99
One of the greatest crossover albums of the 80s – and the record that catapulted Prince very firmly into the mainstream! There's a tightness here that surpasses even that of Prince's early classics for Warner Brothers – an unabashed love of a pop hook that makes for some incredibly catchy tunes that are still delivered with a nice funky undercurrent. The whole Prince family is at the top of their game at this point – and titles include "Darling Nikki", "Let's Go Crazy", "I Would Die 4 U", "When Doves Cry", "Baby I'm A Star", and "Purple Rain". This fantastic 2CD version features a completely new 2015 Paisley Park remaster of the album, done by Prince – plus a full CD that features unreleased songs and tracks from the vaults – with titles that include "Katrina's Paper Dolls", "We Can F**k", "Father's Song", "Possessed", "Computer Blue (hallway speech version)", "Love & Sex", "The Dance Electric", "Our Destiny/Roadhouse Garden", "Wonderful Ass", "Velvet Kitty Cat", and "Electric Intercourse (studio version)".

Island/4 Men With Beards, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
Essential stuff, whether you're a fan of roots reggae, Jamaican soul or the otherworldly antics of the Upsetter! Though you might not know it from some of the bitter rebukes Scratch later laid to wax against him, Romeo was clearly his favorite son when it came to vocalists, and got the prodigal treatment when it came to the choice of rhythms to voice. A monumental effort on both their parts, this album continues to amaze us with every spin, Romeo's soulful inflections matched perfectly to the dark, swampy Black Ark grooves. Include "War Ina Babylon", "Chase The Devil", "Stealin'", "One Step Forward", "Smile Out Of Style", "Uptown Babies", "Tan And See", "Smokey Room" and "Norman". LP, Vinyl record album

Tru Thoughts (UK), 2020. New Copy 2LP ... $20.99 21.99
Sly5thAve is deeper and more soulful than ever before – really stepping past his initial role as a creative beatmaker, and emerging here more as a fully-formed producer with a strong ear for his overall sound! The tunes here are a mix of instrumental and vocal numbers – woven together in a great tapestry that showcases the hippest sides of the contemporary soul spectrum – as Sly gets guest help from Denitia, Marlon Craft, Thalma De Freitas, Sene, Melissa McMillan, and others – really bringing a lot of different flavors to the mix, while the maestro keeps it all together with a very unified vibe! In a world of quickie songdrops and long-distance internet productions, a record like this restores our faith in the way forward – thanks to tracks that include "The Night", "Expatria", "C-Side", "What It Is", "Daddy Warbucks", "Boulevards", "With You", "More Or Less", and "Right Here".

A classic set from pop pair Nino Tempo & April Stevens – a duo who had a great way of folding their vocals together in the space of a catchy tune! Some numbers feature April singing alone, in that breathy style of earlier years – but the best tracks have both singing together, over jaunty backings from Jimmy Haskell – who romps things along with very bassy bottoms that are a wonderful mix of R&B-influenced rock and pop! Titles include the hit "Deep Purple",plus "Paradise", "Baby Weemus", "True Love", "It's Pretty Funny", "One Dozen Roses", "Indian Love Call", and "I've Been Carrying A Torch For You So Long That I Burned A Great Big Hole In My Heart" – proof that the pair had a sense of humor!

VariousPurple Snow – Forecasting the Minneapolis Sound (4LPs with book) ... LP
Numero, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 4 LPs ... $56.99 84.98
The amazing prequel to the big wave of funk and soul that exploded from the Minneapolis scene at the end of the 70s – early sounds that really point the way towards later grooves from folks like Prince, Alexander O'Neal, Andre Cymone, and the team of Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis! The massive package is one of the best-ever sets from the Numero Group – not just a brilliant collection of music, but a rich book-like presentation of this important time in the Twin Cities scene – with a huge booklet of notes, memories, and loads of vintage photos! The whole thing's like taking the quality of Numero's books and mixing it with the focus of their best compilations – and the heavy package is filled with loads and loads of gems that really re-map the whole rise to glory of some of the bigger names of the time. You'll hear sounds here by folks who later recorded under more famous labels, and other sublime cuts by groups who never fully got their due at the time – such as the wonderful Haze, a group we've always loved. Instrumentation is heavy on keyboards and bass – but used in ways that are often a bit warmer and more spontaneous than the electric funk of later Minneapolis years – tied in more strongly to the sound of the underground in other American cities. Titles include "Get It On" by Prophets Of Peace, "I Love You" by Herman Jones, "Taste Of Love" by Aura, "Expense" by Cohesion, "It's The Things That You Do" by Flyte Tyme, "Higher" by Lewis Connection, "I Do Love My Lady" by Haze, "Stone Lover" by Music Love & Funk, "Together" by Rockie Robbins, "Do You Dare" by Alexander O'Neal, "I've Got My Eyes On You" by The Girls, "Can You Deal With It" by Quiet Storm, "Should I Or Should I Not" by Sue Ann Carwell, "No One Else Can Do It To Me Baby" by Mind & Matter, and "Oh Lover" by Orville Shannon.

Stones Throw, 2020. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A rock solid effort from one of the finer producers on Stones Throw at this stage in the label's esteemed history! If you expect 1988 to be throwback effort by the number title, think again, but he's not as predictable as that anyway. He sets an impeccable and unpredictable mood that stays rooted in adventurous instrumental hip hop – with tracks like "Learn" that feel like a contemporary instrumental hip hop take on late 70s Bob James jazz, to soaring hip hop soul with bright keys and vocal samples, even bits of 80s boogie funk that do feel at home on a record called 1988. Includes "Don't Be Afraid", "Do You", "Listen", "Makeitliveforever", "Be Safe", "Mindin' My Business" with Durand Bernarr, "Uonlygetone", "With (Reality)", "Awomanslifeislove", "Solivelive" and more. 22 tracks in all!

A real revelation from Man – and we don't just mean that because the group is standing naked on the cover! Instead, the whole thing is the kind of record that ought to get the UK group a lot more attention than they ever did over here in the US – real pioneers in the psych era – and like the best, able to turn out a short song that packs a world's worth of exploration and experimentation into its grooves! Some tracks here fit surprisingly well with an early Pink Floyd/Syd Barrett mode, but others have maybe a dreamier, trippier, and spookier vibe – especially when some of the instrumentation drops out, and the spare songs really showcase the full scope of energy of the group. Titles include "And In The Beginning", "Blind Man", "And Castles Rise In Children's Eyes", "Don't Just Stand There", "The Future Hides Its Face", and "Puella Puella" – plus the track "Erotica", originally banned in the UK!

The tunes stretch out nice and long, and feel very spontaneous – like you're certainly being let into some special aftershow event – and titles include "The Everlasting Now", "Peach (xtended jam)", "Dorothy Parker", "Just Friends (Sunny)/If You Want Me To Stay", "Joy In Repetition", "We Do This", "2 Nigs United 4 West Compton", "Alphabet Street", and "Girls & Boys".

Champagne/Dual Planet (Australia), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Spacey sounds from Cybotron – not the early Detroit techno pioneers, but the lesser-known Aussie group of the 70s! This Cybotron have a style that's a leaner take on prog modes of the early 70s – a trio approach that mixes heavy drums with work from two different keyboardists, who handle organ, piano, mellotron, Arp, and plenty of other keys – while also throwing in a bit of processed sax into the mix! The whole thing makes for a nicely moody groove – almost the energy of some of the more jamming power trios of the European scene, mixed with the keyboard-heavy sound of groups like Tangerine Dream – served up here on four long tracks that include "Medusa", "Colossus", "Eclipse", and "Raga In Asia Minor" – the last of which has a very cool global sort of vibe!

RPM (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the greatest groups going on the New Zealand scene of the late 60s – killer at covers, and even stronger with their own compositions too! There's a definite Brit invasion feel to the material, especially at the start – as you might guess from the overall look of the package – but like some of the best acts from farther-flung scenes of the 60s, these guys really start to drop some of their copycat modes ones they get moving forward enough to find their own sound. The basslines get bolder, the vocals nastier, and the overall groove hits this tight, garagey fire that really has the quintet taking off – and the CD features great notes, and a total of 25 titles that include "Painter Man", "I Feel God", "So Much In Love With You", "I'll Make You Happy", "Shakin Up Some Soul", "Everybody's Girl", "Coloured Flowers", "Fantasy", "Let's Think Of Something", and "My Son John".

Badass work from Martha Velez – a rock singer at the core, but one with some plenty soulful touches! The album's a UK effort with help from a host of top-shelf talents at the time – but the groove is pretty gritty, and almost has that key rock/funk crossover mode that female singers were hitting in the US – a somewhat colorblind groove that often worked better for a singer like Velez than it did for male vocalists trying for a similar groove. Drums are nice and heavy on some cuts, and the album sports organ from Brian Auger, guitar from Eric Clapton, and heavy bass from Jack Bruce. Titles include "Swamp Man", "I'm Gonna Leave You", "Drive Me Daddy", "Feel So Bad", "Tell Mama", "Very Good Fandango", "A Fool For You", and "Come Here Sweet Man". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ TrapezeMedusa (3CD edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Threshold/Purple (UK), 1970. New Copy 3CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The second album from Trapeze – stripped down to a trio here, and coming across with a quality that really showcases the hard rock directions that lead singer Glenn Hughes would have in years to come! The drums are great – thanks to work from Dave Holland – and the guitars burst in with just the right searing moments, as Hughes sings with more soul than before, and maybe a quality that sounds a bit like Paul Rodgers on some of the more hard-rocking tunes. The album's probably the group's best-remembered – and the one that got the most circulation over here on this side of the Atlantic – an overlooked hard rock classic, with very strong vocals in the lead! Titles include "Seafull", "Black Cloud", "Jury", "Your Love Is Alright", "Makes You Wanna Cry", and "Medusa". This edition features loads of bonus tracks – with mono and stereo edits of "Black Cloud" on CD2, plus live material from a Pop Workshop and Flushing, NY performance – and CD3 features five more tracks recorded live in 1971!

Threshold/Purple (UK), 1970. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The debut album of Trapeze – a great little group that's maybe best known as the early home of Glenn Hughes, but who have plenty to offer on their own! Production is by John Lodge, of the Moody Blues – a strong supporter of the group at their start – but the sound is very different than his own work – sometimes with harmonies that almost have the group coming across in heavier territory than the earlier Bee Gees, sometimes with hints of the hard rock elements that Hughes would bring to later music. Drummer Dave Holland provides excellent work on the set – and titles include "The Giant's Dead Hoorah", "Over", "Nancy Gray", "It's Only A Dream", "Suicide", "Send Me No Letters", and "It's My Life". This huge package features lots of bonus material – UK and US single versions of "Send Me No Letters", demos of "Across The Water Across The Sea", "Seafull", "New Life Again", and "40,000 Voices" – plus 4 tracks from the Colour Me Pop Show, and 3 more BBC sessions from 1969!

✨✧ TrapezeYou Are The Music We're Just The Band (3CD version – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Threshold/Purple (UK), 1972. New Copy 3CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The final album from Trapeze – and a set that has them stepping out as a super-heavy trio who should have been huge! Glenn Hughes handles bass and all the lead vocals – with the best qualities he would soon bring to Deep Purple – and the drums from David Holland are fantastic – full of all the right sort of power and drive to make the lean lineup work so well! Guitarist Mel Galley has really grown a lot since the start – and turns out some solos and leads here that should have made him one of the bigger acts of the growing hard rock generation from the UK – save for the fact that he's also got a wonderful ear for more sensitive moments, which makes this record far more deep than just a standard rocker. Titles include "Loser", "You Are The Music", "Way Back To The Bone", "Keepin Time", "Coast To Coast", "Will Our Love End", and "Feelin So Much Better Now". CD2 features bonus tracks – a mono version of "Coast To Coast", and the tracks "Good Love" and "Dat's It" – plus a Radio 1 concert in 1973 – and live tracks recorded in Dallas and Houston. CD3 continues with 7 more tracks recorded in Houston in 1972 – some of the final material from the group! CD

Art Ensemble Of ChicagoAncient To The Future ... CD
DIW (Japan), 1987. Used ... $24.99
The Art Esemble of Chicago pay tribute to a surprising range of influences – from Duke Ellington to Otis Redding to Fela Kuti and Jimi Hendrix – but all in a set that's still filled with plenty of their trademark creative improvisation, too! In a way, the record's a great illustration of the changes that had come to the AACM over the course of two decades – still bold enough to break down new territory in jazz, but also feeling confident enough to claim a key role in, and link to, a larger history of African-American expression – one that's handled quite deftly here by the group! Lee Bowie joins the group a bit on synth, a relatively small addition to the core sounds from Lester Bowie on trumpet, Joseph Jarman and Roscoe Mitchell on reeds, Malachi Favors on bass, and Don Moye on percussion. Titles include a firey reading of Fela's "Zombie", which is great, plus covers of "No Woman No Cry", "Purple Haze", "These Arms Of Mine", and "Creole Love Call" – and the group's own "Ancient To The Future" suite.

Big Bill BroonzyYoung Big Bill Broonzy 1928 to 1936 ... LP
Yazoo, Late 20s/Early 30s. Very Good+ ... $33.99
Wonderful work from the young Bill Broonzy – exactly the sort of sides that made him a legend right from the start – full of personality and a sort of special spark that few of his contemporaries could match! Bill's got a very confident approach here – a "bigness" that moves past any sort of broken down cliches, and which pushes the lyrics with a charm that really comes through, even past the simpler recording techniques. Most numbers feature deft guitar work from Broonzy alongside the vocals – and titles include "Brownskin Shuffle", "Banker's Blues", "Stove Pipe Stomp", "Hokum Stomp", "Hip Shakin Strut", "I Can't Be Satisfied", and "Saturday Night Rub".

Donald Byrd & Pepper AdamsOut Of This World ... LP
Warwick, 1961. Very Good ... $99.99
Some of the best recordings that Donald Byrd and Pepper Adams ever did together! The material here was recorded for the short-lived Warwick label in the early 60s – with a tight tight rhythm section that includes Jimmy Cobb on drums, Laymon Jackson on bass, and a very young Herbie Hancock on piano. Herbie kicks ass on his solos – and Byrd and Adams are very tight, with none of the clunkiness that sometimes mars their other work. The set includes a killer version of "Mr LuckyTheme", plus the tracks "Out Of This World", "Bird House", "It's A Beautiful Evening", and "Curro's". LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie Cano & Nino TempoOn Broadway ... LP
Atco, 1966. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A wonderful set of Latin groovers – one of the few jazz-styled albums cut by tenor player Nino Tempo, and a tight session from the group of pianist Eddie Cano! Eddie's combo has a highly percussive feel – in keeping with Eddie's own sound on the keys – and Nino blows very soulfully over the top as the group works through an excellent set of covers and original numbers. At first glance, the album might appear to be a bit too pop styled – but it's actually pretty darn great, and Tempo's work on sax gives the tunes a wonderfully fluid feel that makes us wish he'd recorded more in this mode! Titles include "King Kong", "My Resolution", "Reza", "Call Your D", "His Groove", and "Hip Street". Really great stuff! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Randy CrawfordNaked & True (2CD version – with bonus track) ... CD
Blue Moon/Big Break (UK), 1995. Used 2CDs ... Just Sold Out!
A later date from 70s soul legend Randy Crawford – cut overseas, at a time when she was initially without US representation – a situation that was immediately corrected with the strength of the album! The set has Randy really getting back to basics – mostly working with tight jazz funk backings that recall both her first few records, and her work with The Crusaders – a perfect setting for her wonderful voice, and her trademark use of jazzy currents with more straight-ahead soul! Players on the record include Fred Wesley on trombone, Bernie Worrell on keyboards, and Bootsy Collins on bass – which will give you an idea of the strength of the sound – and titles include "Cajun Moon", "Give Me The Night", "Glow Of Love", "I'll Be Around", "Forget Me Nots", "Joy Inside My Tears", "Purple Rain", and "Come Into My Life". Great 2CD version – features a bonus instrumental version of "The Glow Of Love" – plus 13 more different mixes of tracks from the album – including "Cajun Moon (long trip mix)", "Forget Me Nots (Femi Fem rotation mix)", "Give Me The Night (Mousse T's classic club mix)", "Forget Me Nots (Delaney's mix)", "I'll Be Around (surprise mix)", and "Cajun Moon (cajun trip club version)".

Bobby DarinSings Shadow Of Your Smile ... LP

The Shadow Of Your Smile has Bobby working partially in that more adult 60s mode that was influenced strongly by changes in soundtrack styles – especially that 60s trend towards letting some serious younger songwriters pen important tunes for the titles. There's also a few older tracks as well, and these dominate on side two, but these are nicely folded into the contemporary ones in sound and spirit – arranged by Shorty Rogers and Richard Wess with a lightly easygoing approach. Titles include "The Shadow Of Your Smile", "I Will Wait For You", "The Sweetheart Tree", "Cute", "After You've Gone", "Liza", "What's New Pussycat", and the Darin original "Rainin".

✨✧ Slide HamptonSister Salvation ... LP
Atlantic, 1960. Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
One of Slide Hampton's first albums – and a massively hard-wailing set that will make any doubters sit up and take notice! The set really packs a punch – as Slide leads a hip group that features Freddie Hubbard, Richard Williams, Bernard McKinney, and George Coleman through some tightly woven arrangements that manage to swing with the grace of small combo work, yet wail with the intensity of a big band. Great solos pop out all over the set – and there's a soul jazz groove that makes the album sound like a classic Prestige session. Titles include "Asseveration", "Hi Fly", "Sister Salvation", and "A Little Night Music". LP, Vinyl record album

Hi RhythmOn The Loose (with download) ... LP
Hi Records/Fat Possum, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99 14.99
A great little album of southern funk from the 70s – cut by the team that provided musical backing on many of the classic Hi Records sessions from the time! The groove is a bit different than usual for Hi – not compressed, burning deep soul – but tight, funky, and flanged-out – a bit like what classic P-Funk might have been like, had it been recorded in Memphis! The group's super sharp in their playing – with great bass and electric keyboards – but they've also got kind of a trippy feel that's very surprising, given the more restrained soul quality of much of the stuff on Hi. The album's all original material, and most cuts have cool vocals slinking in and out of the funk – and titles include "On The Loose", "Skinny Dippin'", "Superstar", "Purple Raindrops", and "You Got Me Comin".

Richard Groove HolmesGroove ... CD
Pacific Jazz/Capitol, 1961. Used ... $8.99
An early cooker from Richard Groove Holmes – and one of the most important Hammond jazz sets to come out of the west coast at the time! At a point when most folks think the east has a lock on the instrument, Groove bursts forth here with a great hard-edged sound – proof that the LA scene didn't just go for cool jazz and the occasional hardbop date – and the start of a great run of records that would have Holmes sounding great all through the 60s! The lineup is nicely unusual, too – with guitar from Chicagoan George Freeman, then on the west coast – and a key part of Holmes' group for years – and trombone from the excellent Lawrence Tricky Lofton, a player who rarely recorded, but made some great sides with Carmell Jones. The group also features Les McCann on piano, a nice combo with the organ – plus Ben Webster on tenor and Ron Jefferson on drums. Titles include "Good Groove", "That Healin' Feelin'", "Them That's Got", and "Deep Purple". CD

Walter JacksonWelcome Home – The Many Moods of Walter Jackson ... LP
Okeh, 1965. Very Good- ... $1.99
A sublime mix of new tunes and re-imagined standards – and a set that takes Walter Jackson into even more sophisticated soul territory than before! The record is proof that the up and coming soul artists of the 60s had a key place alongside the more established mainstream acts on the other side of the fence – as Walter's working here with arranger Riley Hampton to re-cast a number of familiar tunes in his cool Iceman soul mode – changing the themes, rhythms, and inflections of the tracks for a more contemporary soul market – and also interspersing them with a few great new songs of his own! The approach is amazing – far better than even Jerry Butler or Chuck Jackson's work in a similar idiom – and the album features the sublime hit "Welcome Home", plus the Van McCoy tunes "Suddenly I'm All Alone", "Still At The Mercy Of Your Love", and "The Magic's Gone" – alongside versions of "Moon River", "Let It Be Me", "Imagination", and "My Funny Valentine".

Little EvaLoco-Motion ... LP
Dimension, 1962. Near Mint- ... $29.99
Not just a key record from the lovely Little Eva, but also a key moment for the young Carole King – who co-wrote the record, conducted the group, and also did the arrangements with help from Claus Ogerman! If you know the title hit, you'll know the groove here – a great raw take on 60s female soul – unpolished, unadorned, and nicely raw right from the start – a quality that makes Eva's music quite different from Motown at the time, even though over the years her hit is often lumped in with some of the biggest from the Motor City. The album's got a rock-solid, New York sort of approach – some standout groovers, some even better weepies, and a sense of confidence that makes us wonder what the heck kept Eva from ever becoming a bigger star over the years. Titles include "The Loco-Motion", plus "Some Kinda Wonderful", "Run To Her", "Down Home", "Uptown", "Up On The Roof", and "Will You Love Me Tomorrow". LP, Vinyl record album

Malibu Ken (Aesop Rock & Tobacco)Malibu Ken (blue colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Rhymesayers, 2019. New Copy Gatefold ... $18.99 21.98
Aesop Rock teams up with producer Tobacco as Malibu Ken – and one the best Aesop projects in years! There's a sly humor to Malibu Ken that doesn't play quite as cynical as at can on some the more dystopian sci-fi sounding production Aesop Rock has rhymed over going all the back to the Def Jux days. There's still nicely futuristic vibe, courtesy Tobacco with squalling synth sounds and beats like a digital engine revving up, but there's a more playful kind of vibe, too. Here's hoping this is only the first Malibu Ken LP! Includes "Corn Maze", "Tuesday", "Save Our Ship", "Sword Box", "Dog Years", "Acid King", ""Suicide Big Gulp", "Churro", "1+1=13" and "Purple Moss".

An artist you might not know at all – but one you'll be digging plenty after hearing this wonderful set! Richard Marks is a guitarist and singer with a very funky, very gritty sound – really right up there with the best of the funky 45 underground of the time – which makes this overstuffed package feel like you've just inherited a sweet stack of rare 7" singles! Marks hardly made it outside of his hometown of Atlanta – but did work over the years with stars like Al Green and Eddie Kendricks – but, thankfully for us, he left behind a strong legacy of small label singles, nearly all of which are included in this beautiful set – along with a full book that tells the tale of Richard's time outside the limelight, plus lots of photos, images, and notes on the music.

A real killer from Brother Jack McDuff – one of his first truly great albums, and a record that has him breaking from the sleepier R&B organ sound of the 50s – into the leaner, cleaner mode of the 60s! The album's one of the first to have him playing with the incredible drummer Joe Dukes – who gives the grooves plenty of weird twists and turns – that trademark McDuff approach to rhythm that would really set him apart from other organ players. The rest of the group features Leo Wright on alto sax and Kenny Burrell on guitar – both great players here, and not always heard with Jack.

The album's got a relaxed, open feel – almost the blowing session mode used with Mobley on Savoy, and a great illustration of Hank's warmly collaborative talents in the company of some of the best players of his generation. The album features 2 groups – with either Lee Morgan or Donald Byrd on trumpet, Hank Jones or Barry Harris on piano, Doug Watkins on bass, and Art Taylor on drums – working together wonderfully on tunes that include "Thad's Blues", "Doug's Minor B'ok", and "Space Flight".

A wonderful lost treasure – material recorded live at the Lighthouse in 1953, by a quartet that featured Art Pepper on alto and Sonny Clark on piano! The recording quality is a bit rough, as might be expected – but the set really cooks nicely, with a hard edge from Clark's piano that makes the whole thing have a bit more bite than some of Pepper's studio work from the time. Tracks have a nice open feel, and Art's laying back more than we'd expect – almost blowing a bit like Stitt. 2CD set features 11 numbers pulled from previous vinyl versions of the set – with titles that include "Night & Day", "Tenderly", "Brown Gold", "Tickle Toe", "Deep Purple", "Blue Bird", "S'Wonderful", "Pennies From Heaven", "Holiday Flight", and "Strike Up The Band".

The first disc is a straight up greatest hits collection, starting with "I Wanna Be Your Lover" from the self titled LP and ending with "My Name Is Prince from the "Love Symbol" album – and includes many of the biggest hits in between!

Profile, 1986. Very Good+ ... $29.99
The massive third album from Run DMC – made at the top of their game – an pivotal effort that brought them to peak popularity and helped break hip hop in a huge way in the pop culture landscape! Part of the album's strength is its guitar-heavy sound on some of the grooves – produced by Rick Rubin and Russell Simmons with a classic early Def Jam vibe, in the same manner that helped the Beastie Boys get their records in the hands of folks who'd never buy hip hop otherwise! That sound comes to culmination on the album's hit collaboration with Aerosmith on a remake of "Walk This Way", resulting in the commercial breakthrough, but the real triumph here is the increased complexity in both the lyricism, and the way Jam Master Jay serves up their beats – which makes for a stone classic all the way through, on tracks that include "Peter Piper", "It's Tricky", "My Adidas", "Proud To Be Black", "You Be Illin'", and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(In the purple cover, with a cut corner and a small center split in the spine.)

Percy SledgeWhen A Man Loves A Woman ... LP
Atlantic, 1966. Very Good ... $29.99
A stone classic from Percy Sledge – and a set that really put southern soul on the map! Along with the familiar title hit – one of those tunes you'll recognize instantly – the album's a treasure trove of deep soul numbers – done under the supervision of Quin Ivy, in Sheffield, Alabama – with a sound that's a bit different than the more familiar Memphis and Muscle Shoals styles of the 60s – yet equally great! There's a slow-burning vibe here that virtually set the tone for a whole generation – energy that's more even-keeled than Otis Redding, with a subtle power that will haunt you for years – thanks to Percy's sweet crackling vocals. Titles include "When A Man Loves A Woman", "Love Me Like You Mean It", "You're Pouring Water On A Drowning Man", "Put A Little Lovin On Me", "Love Me All The Way", and "You Fooled Me".

Vanilla FudgeVanilla Fudge ... LP
Atco, 1967. Very Good ... $5.99
One of the coolest concepts for a record in the 60s – and a set that's the first, and maybe crowning achievement of Vanilla Fudge! The set's mighty trippy – and often offers up very weird, fuzzy remakes of songs that were more mainstream hits for other artists in the 60s – tunes by The Beatles, Zombies, Impressions, and others – taken into really weird new territory by the group's jamming fuzz guitar, stark rhythms, and dark sensibilities. Genius Shadow Morton produced and directed the whole thing – which is one of his crowning achievements, and a great commentary on some of the more mainstream pop he was producing at the time. Titles include "Illusions Of My Childhood", "Eleanor Rigby", "Ticket To Ride", "Bang Bang", "She's Not There", "Take Me For A Little While", and "You Keep Me Hanging On". LP, Vinyl record album

Gene VincentBluejean Bop! ... LP
Capitol, 1956. Very Good+ ... $16.99
The first and best ever LP by rockabilly titan Gene Vincent – and one of the best early rock longplayers by anyone – featuring the fiery sound that Gene's best remembered for on a number of tunes plus sure hand with country ballads, too! Lead guitarist Cliff Gallup is a big part of the driving genius here – as is Ken Nelson's (seemingly) hands off production style – which was such an integral part of the most classic work by so many great country and country-ish artists on Capitol in the late 50s & the 60s. (Buck Owens, Faron Young, Merle Haggard, Hank Thompson. . .) Tracks include "Bluejean Bop", "Jezebel", "Who Slapped John?", "I Flipped", "Waltz Of The Wind", "Jump Back, Honey, Jump Back", "That Old Gang Of Mine", "Jumps, Giggles And Shouts", "Bop Street", "Peg O' My Heart".

Stevie WonderEivets Rednow – Alfie ... LP
Motown, 1968. Near Mint- ... $8.99
A late 60s all-instrumental set from Stevie Wonder – and a record that shows a real change from his style in the earlier part of the decade – a much more mature move forward, and one that hints at the power of his arrangements in the 70s! As you might guess from the "Alfie" in the title, Wonder takes on a bit of Burt Bacharach – but also then moves in to other territory too – numbers that feature his harmonica over hip larger arrangements, almost with the feel of a Toots Thielemans album at points – and a bit of a soundtrack vibe at others, particularly some of the more keyboard-oriented cuts. Titles include "Alfie", "A House Is Not A Home", "Grazing In The Grass", "Never My Love/Ask The Lonely", "Ruby", "Which Way The Wind", "Bye Bye World", and "How Can You Believe".

VariousAstral Daze Vol 2 – More Psychedelic Gems From The South African Underground ... CD
Fresh (South Africa), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $13.99
Hard grooving psychedelia and other wise astral rock from the South African underground scene – and a variety of sounds – some from the Hendrix school of hard bluesy psyche sounds, others airier and more based on soaring vocals and trippy songcraft, and still others with surprising bits of soul! This second volume in the Astral Daze series stands up proudly with the first, with a few recognizable names for deep rock nugget diggers, Blondie Chapman for one, here with his group The Flames, and lots of others that are totally fresh to our ears! 18 tracks in all: "The Kid He Came From Aazareth" by Freedoms Children, "Spider Spider" by Tidal Wave, "Solitude" by The Flames, "I Wish I Was A Purple Door" by Falling Mirror, 'Woman Yeah" by The Gonks, "She's A Mermaid" by Band Of Gypsies and much more.

VariousCold Waves Of Color Vol 4 ... CD
Color Tapes/Lion, Early 80s. New Copy ... $8.99
The continuing genius of this really wonderful series – just about the only way you'll get to hear this wealth of work from the UK electro scene of the early 80s – most of which was only released on cassette at the time! These tracks follow strongly on the electronic sounds of scenes like Sheffield or Manchester – work that's much more underground than material by groups like New Order or Cabaret Voltaire – with maybe more of the darkness of the latter in their earliest days, and a continuing legacy to the starker, minimal modes – even when the songs have a bit of vocals. Perhaps a strong comparison might be the turn that Section 25 too with their classic From The Hip album on Factory – and titles include "Danse Electrique" by Beatmixer, "Going Out" by Silicon Valley, "Start Of Something" by Berserk In A Hayfield, "World Perfect (edit)" by WeR7, "I'll Get You For This" by Mystery Plane, and "Train" by Echophase".

VariousFunction Underground – The Black & Brown American Rock Sound 1969 to 1974 ... LP
Now Again, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $19.99 24.98
The deepest of the deep from the American scene at the start of the 70s – groups so hip they weren't quite soul, weren't quite rock – and instead kind of a funky hybrid of both! After opening our ears to countless underground sounds from around the globe, the Now Again label turn back to some of the territory of its roots – the hinterland of groups who labored mostly in obscurity, but left behind a few funky 45s that have become the stuff of legend – and which show us that there was a much bigger psychedelic funk underground out there besides groups like Funkadelic or the early Ohio Players! As always with the label, the history is really given its due, thanks to very detailed notes – alongside titles that include "Down By The River" by Purple Snow, "There's A Wrinkle In Our Time" by 1984, "Function Underground" by We The People, "Corruption Is The Thng" by Creations Unlimited, "Jimi's Guitar Raps With The Bass" by Jimi Macon, "I'm A Man" by Cisneros & Garza Group, "Just Got To Be Free" by Black Conspirators, "BL Movement" by Blaclites, and "The Siesta Is Over" by The Revolution.

VariousWe Dig Groovin' – TK 7 Inch Collection ... CD
TK/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1970s. New Copy ... $32.99
A great collection of rare 45s from the powerhouse TK Records label and all it's many smaller imprints – Dade, Glades, Alston, and many others – brought here together with a focus on a really special side of the label! TK was one of the first to really promote the 12" single in the disco generation – but before, during, and after the label maintained a strong commitment to the funky 45 too – and really used the format to showcase some of its stronger soul singers, in a way that made sure that the 7" singles packed plenty of punch! This set features 24 of those rare nuggets from TK, with plenty of obscure numbers in the lineup – and titles include "All Because Of Your Love" by Otis Clay, "Rules Are Made To Be Broken" by The Diamonettes, "Never Had A Love So Good" by Charles Johnson, "I Can't Speak" by Jimmy Bo Horne, "Don't Waste My Time" by Jerry Washington, "Hold On To It" by Barry Smith, "Please Don't Stop" by Wildflower, "Stop Hurting Me Baby" by Purple Mundi, "One Night Affair" by The Rising Sun, "That Is Why" by Sherlyn Wittiker & Touch, "Even Though" by King Tutt, "Do What You Wanna Do (part 1)" by Frank Howard & The Continentals, and "How Can I Do What's Right" by Vanessa Kendrick.
