VariousPye Girls Colored My World – 32 Brit Girl Tunes Of The Swinging Sixties (180 gram blue vinyl) (2020 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Pye/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), Late 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $32.99 35.99
A mad assortment of 60s girl pop from the UK – one that features a huge amount of material pulled from the vaults of Pye Records! If you've always thought that Petula Clark and Sandie Shaw were all that was going on in the UK pop scene at the time, you'll really be blown away by the scope of material in this collection – as the package features a total of 32 tunes in all, most of which are by artists that were barely ever known on this side of the Atlantic! The song selection is great – and nearly all of it is in that high-stepping, tightly punctuated mode that we first came to love in the tunes of Petula Clark, but which are really beginning to discover in a huge amount of other singers! Features work by Simone Jackson, Glo Macari, Shirley Abicair, Tammy St John, Helen Shapiro, Sharon Tandy, Sandra Barry, The Ferris Wheel, Mally Page, Tawney Reed, Billie Davis, and many others. LP, Vinyl record album
(Individually numbered limited edition pressing – on heavyweight "baby blue" colored vinyl! Includes bonus print, too!)

VariousShe Wants You – Pye Records' Feminine Side 1964 to 1970 ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $14.99 19.99
Fantastic Brit girl pop from the 60s – from one of the labels who did it better than most! Pye Records was famously home to Petula Clark, but the company had lots of other wonderful female singers in its lineup – and over the course of the 60s, they continually set the tone for new standards in British music – taking on all the right inspirations from American pop and soul, but also delivering the goods with that uniquely English style of arranging and producing – always with an extra punch that makes every one of these tracks a gem! The set's got a really good range of material – a few bigger names, and lots of more obscure singers – including a few heard here in earlier years, before moving onto more rock-based work in the 70s. The insides of the booklet are as lively as the cover – great images of the singers, rare records, and other vintage materials – alongside 25 tracks that include "Adam Can You Beat That" by Dana Gillespie, "I Can't Break The Habit" by The Ferris Wheel, "Lost Summer Love" by Lorraine Silver, "I Run To Hide" by Anita Harris, "I Want You" by Jeannie & The Big Guys, "Run To Me" by Glenda Collins, "Seven Letters" by Margo & The Marvetts, "Thank Goodness For The Rain" by Peanut, "Hollywood" by Jackie Trent, "Rain" by Petula Clark, "Question" by Sandra Barry, "The Life That I Lead" by The New Faces, "Dark Shadows & Empty Hallways" by Tammy St John, "Your Kind Of Love" by The Breakaways, and "How Can I Hide It From My Heart" by Maxine Darren.

Roy BuddInternecine Project ... LP
Pye/Trunk (UK), 1974. New Copy ... $29.99
That's an angry-looking James Coburn on the cover – a tipoff that you're in for something really special on the record – one of the best-ever soundtracks from the mighty Roy Budd, the man who also gave the world the superb score for Get Carter! There's a few elements here that echo the music for that famous film – including some inventive percussion, moody basslines, and a great use of space – and the lineup of musicians features some surprising contributions from important British jazz artists – including Kenny Baker on trumpet and Tubby Hayes on tenor, Frank Barber on percussion, and Jeff Clyne on bass – plus Roy himself on Fender Rhodes, clavinet, harpsichord, and piano! This is the first-ever extended presentation of music from the soundtrack, a superb treat throughout – with titles that include "Mr Easy", "Death In The Shower", "Alright Alex", "Find A Solution", "The Deal", "Never Think Twice", "Waiting For Murder", "Main Theme", "Somebody's Going To Have To Kill Him", and "Borrowed Time".

Mike CooperOh Really!? ... LP
Pye/Trading Places (UK), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99
An early classic from British guitarist Mike Cooper – an artist who was part of that unique moment of mid 60s British blues – part folk, part rock, and with a quality that definitely paved the way for many other modes to come! The set has Mike Cooper mostly on guitar and vocals, in a style that's part Piedmont, part Delta blues – but also given a more folksy spin, and graced with Cooper's unusual vocals – almost making the whole thing feel like a spare acoustic version of Canned Heat territory – with titles that include "Maggie Campbell", "Saturday Blues", "Electric Chair", "Crow Jane", and "You're Gonna Be Sorry".

DonovanWhat's Bin Did & What's Bin Hid (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Pye/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99 26.98
Really beautiful work from the young Donovan – still yet to become the trippy popster that most folks know – but still pretty amazing here! The music definitely owes a lot to Bob Dylan – Donovan's playing harmonica and acoustic guitar, with just a bit of bass and drums behind him – but already, that vocal spirit that makes him so great is starting to shine – incredibly charming, especially on his original material – which shows a sense of playfulness that Dylan never would have touched! Titles include the seminal "Catch The Wind" – plus "Ramblin Boy", "Tangerine Puppet", "You're Gonna Need Somebody On Your Bond", "Goldwatch Blues", "Car Car", "Cuttin Out", and "Josie".

Head MachineOrgasm ... LP
Pye/Trading Places (UK), 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99
An album of legendary status from the UK scene of the late 60s – although one that never got the banning by the BBC that it was hoping for! The whole thing was put together as a sex-based concept album – with an ultra-racy name and double-entendre song titles – almost a cash-in on the free love generation, but hoping to create a sex scandal too – although in reality, the album's a great solid rocker – put together by members of The Gods, with some especially strong contributions from Ken Leslie! Leslie handles the vocals, along with David Paramor – who was the producer who put the whole project together – and shaped the overall vibe of the record, which lies somewhere between hard rock and maybe some of the Vertigo Records generation. Titles include "The First Time", "Climax", "You Must Come With Me", "Make The Feeling Last", "Orgasm", and "Scattering Seeds". LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy James & The VagabondsNew Religion/London Swings/This Is Jimmy James & The Vagabonds/Open Up Your Soul (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Pye/BGO (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $14.99
Four classic albums from this hip British soul group – issued here in a single set, with bonus tracks too! First up is New Religion – a record that was also released in America by Atlantic Records. Although they were a UK soul act, Jimmy James and The Vagabonds were a perfect match for the Atlantic soul stable of the 60s. The group had a smooth group style that was partly uptown, partly northern soul – as clearly illustrated in this album, which is divided up into a "mood red: you feel like leaping" side, and a "mood blue: you feel like digging deeper" side. The band chose some good material that really helps them maintain a solid socking soul sound – including "The Entertainer" and "Ain't Love Good, Ain't Love Proud" by Tony Clarke, "Ain't No Big Thing" and "I'm Just A Fool For You Girl" by Gerald Sims, and "Little Boy Blue" and "People Get Ready" by Curtis Mayfield. Also features "Come To Me Softly", a sweet dreamy ballad by Jimmy, and kind of a bit crossover hit for the boys. London Swings is two-sided monster – as the album was originally split with work from the Alan Bown Set too! Here, the CD features just the live material from the soul group – a smoking performance from Jimmy James & The Vagabonds – one that goes way past the sweetness of their hits, and which has a crowd-pleasing, party-hearty approach to soul that's really great! Jimmy and the group serve up versions of "Sock It To Em JB", "That Driving Beat", "Ain't Too Proud To Beg", "You Don't Know Like I Know", and "Don't Know What I'm Gonna Do". This Is Jimmy James & The Vagabonds is a record that featured some crossover tracks with New Religion – but the set here just features the exclusive cuts – including "I Feel Alright", "I Can't Get Back Home To My Baby", "Never Like This Before", "I Don't Wanna Cry", and "You Showed Me The Way". Open Up Your Soul is a record with a really wonderful sound – the deeply soulful vocals of Jimmy James & The Vagabonds, mixed with rich arrangements handled by Nicky Welsh, and produced to perfection by Brit maestro John Schroeder! The record's got the sophistication of some of the Richard Evans productions over at Chess/Cadet at the same time – and, no surprise, the group lead off with a great cover of The Dells "Wear It On Our Face" – then roll into cuts that include "Cry Like A Baby", "Good Day Sunshine", "Four Walls", "Everybody Loves A Winner", "If You're Gonna Love Me", and "Open Up Your Soul". CD also features 7 more bonus tracks from singles – including "Why", "Bumper To Bumper", "Close The Door", "Give Us A Light", "I Wanna Be your Everything", "Hungry For Love", and "Don't Know What I'm Gonna Do".

KinksKinks Part 1 – Lola Versus Powerman & The Moneygoround (2CD set – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Pye/BMG, 1970. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 19.99
An album that maybe marked the close of one chapter of The Kinks, and the start of another – music that still holds on to some of the best elements of their late 60s Village Green era, but which also moves the group into some of the headier territory of their Muswell Hill/RCA years too! Ray Davies has never sounded more earnest – still able to pull off wit when needed, but also more down to earth – and because of the massive title hit, the set was also one that put the group in front of the ears or more folks than had been hearing them in previous years. Titles include, of course, the mega-hit "Lola" – plus "This Time Tomorrow", "Apeman", "Strangers", "The Contenders", "Long Way From Home", "Rats", and "Top Of The Pops". Great package – with alternate tracks that include mono versions of "Lola", "Apeman", "Rats", and "Powerman" – plus an alternate stereo take of "Apeman". CD2 features lots of bonus tracks – thew tunes "Anytime", "Marathon", and "Got To Be Free (edit)" – plus "Moneygoround (alt)", "Top Of The Pops (2020 mix)", "Get Back In Line (live)", "Strangers (2020 stereo)", "Contenders (inst demo)", "Long Way From Home (live 2006)", and "Lola (with Danish orchestra)".

SearchersSearchers – A & B Sides 1963 to 1967 ... CD
Pye/BGO (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
The first-ever full collection of all the groovy singles The Searchers recorded for the Pye Records label in the 60s – a 32 track set that includes both the a and b-side of every 7" release for the label! The Searchers were one of the leading lights of the early British invasion – a group who could harmonize as well as The Beatles, and who had a similar knack for turning out catchy tunes that packed plenty of punch, and which were a nicely stripped-down contrast to some of the more overblown production of American pop of the time! In addition to penning their own tunes, the group often covered work by American artists – taking US tunes and giving them a Brit Invasion flavor in a really great way – thanks to a lean sound, and lots of well-tuned guitar lines! Titles include "Western Union", "Second Hand Dealer", "Crazy Dreams", "This Feeling Inside", "I Pretend I'm With You", "Saturday Night Out", "When You Walk In The Room", "Sugar & Spice", "It's All Been A Dream", "Saints & Searchers", "I'm Never Coming Back", "Too Many Miles", and "Lovers".

Great stuff from this short-lived UK soul group – and a record that includes the monster title cut "Sad Sweet Dreamer". The record's filled with other great harmony soul tracks, and it's hard to believe it was recorded in the UK, because it sounds much more like an East Coast soul album than a Brit one. Other tracks include "Mr. Cool" and "Eyes in the Back of My Head". LP, Vinyl record album

UnderdogsWasting Our Time ... LP
Pye/Wah Wah (Spain), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
A heady second set from New Zealand's Underdogs – a record that has the group reduced to a trio, yet somehow finding even more power in their overall sound! There's a nicely thoughtful approach to the music – not some of the full-on hard rock of other power trios of the time, but instead a balance between roots and more freewheeling moments – the latter of which really take over on the album's closer, a monstrous 10 minute jam! The record echoes some of the blues/hard styles of the UK scene of the time, but also has a personality that's very much its own – maybe because the whole thing was cooked up in far away Auckland. Titles include "Tomorrow's Child", "Garden Of Eden", "Clover In The Air", "Is He Going To Die", "It's A Blessing", "Old Grey Dog", "Name The Day", and "Duchess Of Montrose". LP, Vinyl record album

Geno Washington & The Ram Jam BandHand Clappin Foot Stompin Funky Butt/Shake A Tail Feather/Hipsters Flipsters Finger Poppin Daddies/Runnin Wild (plus bonus tracks) (3CD set) ... CD
Pye/BGO (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 3CD ... $16.99
A huge package – four full albums by this excellent soul group – plus lots of bonus tracks too! First up is Hand Clappin Foot Stompin Funky Butt Live – filled with sockin soul from Geno Washington – an ex-American marine who recorded to big fame in the UK in the late 60s – working with the legendary Ram Jam Band, an act that rivaled some of the best American combos of the southern party circuit at the time! The approach here is certainly soul-based, but it's also something different – given the actual overseas origin of the recording – and in a way, the record's a perfect example of the influence that African-American military had in Europe in the 60s – as their presence on the continent really helped to shape and authenticate the sounds of some already-willing overseas combos. Geno's vocals are great, and the tracks are all upbeat and lively – very much what you'd expect from the title! Titles include "Philly Dog", "Ride Your Pony", "Road Runner", "Up Tight", "Land Of 1000 Dance", "Que Sera Sera", "Get Down With It", and "Willy Nilly". Shake A Tail Feather is a hard-smoking album that bears all the best 60s hallmarks of Geno Washington and his Ram Jam Band! The album's not as much a live effort as the previous two, but still keeps all the best spontaneous qualities in the music – a feel that really makes you think that Washington and the band were just partying in the studio, rattling the tunes off as they came to them – with all the confidence and swagger earned from a never-ending stream of gigs in the UK! Titles include "Raise Your Hand", "You Got Me Hummin", "Tell It Like It Is", "Use Me", "Understanding", "Knock On Wood", "I'm Your Puppet", "Who's Foolin Who", and "Hold On To My Love". CD also features 7 more bonus tracks – including "Seven Eleven", "Alison Please", "Each & Every Part Of Me", "Give Em A Hand", and "Dirty Dirty". Next is Hipsters Flipsters Finger Poppin Daddies – a bit of soul, a bit of R&B, a bit of beat group grooving – all wrapped up in a classic 60s set from Geno Washington & The Ram Jam Band! Geno's American roots are inflected and appreciated strongly here – not just by the Ram Jam combo, who groove things up with plenty of influences from Atlantic and Sue Records – but also by the audience, who seem to go even more crazy for Geno than the crowds at the Apollo did for James Brown! Washington's vocals are somewhat rough and raspy – perhaps not the instant hit sort of sound for the US market, but a perfect fit for the rougher-edged grooves going on here – partyful soul that's never too poised, and which features lots of covers of 60s classics throughout. Titles include "Herk's Works", "Day Tripper", "I Can't Turn You Loose", "Shotgun", "Raise Your Hand", "Who's Foolin Who", "It's A Wonder", and "Wild Thing". Last up is one more live album – Runnin Wild – with 11 more tracks that include "Rock Me Baby (parts 1 & 2)", "High Heel Sneakers/Mary Ann", "Knock On Wood", "I Take What I Want", "Gimme A Little Sign/Raise Your Hand", "I Got You Babe", and "I Get So Excited". Plus, the package features 33 more bonus tracks – including later singles, rare b-sides, and some EP-only tracks! CD

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!

Two great albums from Ray "funky trumpet" Davies – not the lead singer of The Kinks, but a heck of a groovy British bandleader from the 70s! First up is an album of Themes From The Exorcist and other films – all familiar movie themes from the early 70s, penned by artists like Michel Legrand and Lalo Schifrin – but served up here by Ray's Button Down Brass in a very cool style – compressed funk, ala the best crime/cop modes of the time – but with lots of individual touches that make the songs very different than the original versions! Titles include "Point Blank", "Enter The Dragon", "Klute", "French Connection", "Tubular Bells", "Cops & Robbers", and "Beyond Tomorrow". Flashpoint continues with some great film themes again served up in the magic Ray Davies mode – a funky big band approach that makes the record every bit as compelling as the American Cop Shows album from Henry Mancini – but maybe groovier, too. Titles include "Kojak", "Big Boss", "Man With The Golden Gun", "Mr Majestyk", "Magnum Force", "Fist Of Fury", and "Airport 1975". CD

Peter Geoffrey Richardson is also a core member of the group, and provides electric viola at many spots – an instrument which doesn't change the Caravan sound, so much as slide right in and expand it.

Claudine originally hails from Georgia, but the work here is much more in Detroit, Chicago, or New York styles of the time – nicely moving numbers with a Motor City blend of tight instrumentation and bold lead vocals – sometimes a bit sweet, but always with enough power to keep up with the grooves in the tunes! The package does a great job of bringing together work from Claudine's varied recording career in the 60s – material done for labels that include Chancellor, Jamie, Fayette, Swan, Herald, and Match – under Clark's name, and the names of Joy Dawn and Sherry Pye as well. CD features full notes on Claudine's music and recording history at the time – plus 24 tracks that include "Party Lights (alt take)", "Gimme A Break", "A Sometimes Thing", "Easy To Love", "The Strength To Be Strong", "The Telephone Game", "Goodbye Mama", "Hang It Up", "Standing On Tip Toe", "Moon Madness", "My Turn To Laugh", "Who Will You Hurt", "Angel Of Happiness", "What Kind Of Party", and "Teenage Blues".

ColosseumThose Who Are About To Die Salute You (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Esoteric (UK), 1969. New Copy ... $14.99 20.99 About May 7, 2021
A jazz rock masterpiece from Colosseum – the kind of record that the British scene could do far far better than any American group at the time! The set is a sweet blend of late beat group grooving – using the heavy R&B-influenced guitar and organ styles of earlier years, and working them into a more open-ended, more improvisational approach that had a surprising amount of soul! Most cuts have vocals, but the instrumentation is what really dominates the set – especially on the sweet organ work from Dave Greenslade, and the always-great sax work by Dick Heckstall-Smith. Titles include the funky "Debut", and the cuts "Walking In The Park", "Plenty Hard Lick", "The Road She Walked Before", "Mandarin" and "Those About To Die". Bonus tracks here inlcude 3 great tracks recorded at Pye Studios in late 1968: "I Can't Live Without You", "In The Heat Of The Night" and a demo version of "Those About To Die". CD
This title is scheduled for release about Friday, May 7.

✨✧ Hugh Hopper1984 (red vinyl pressing) (2020 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
CBS/Culture Factory, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first-ever solo album from Hugh Hopper – best known as the bassist for Soft Machine, but an equally creative artist on his own! The album is a bit more experimental, and sometimes more jazz-based, than Hugh's work in the bigger group – a blend of odd acoustic sounds with slight electronic elements – sometimes a bit abstract, sometimes a lot more focused and tuneful! The album's a key underground expression from the bigger UK jazz rock scene of the time – proof that its more adventurous roots were still present in the best players – and Hopper's work here on bass, percussion, and mellophone is augmented by a shifting array of players who include John Marshall on percussion, Gary Windo on tenor sax, Malcolm Griffiths and Nick Evans on trombone, Lol Coxhill on soprano sax, and Pye Hastings on guitar. Titles include "Miniluv", "Minipax 1", "Minitrue", "Miniplenty", "Miniluv Reprise". LP, Vinyl record album
(On translucent red vinyl!)
