Roger GlennReachin' ... CD
Fantasy/BGP (UK), 1976. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A great lost chapter in the Larry Mizell story – a record that's not nearly as well known as Mizell-produced jams for Bobbi Humphrey or Johnny Hammond, but which is every bit as great! Roger Glenn's a funky flute player with a really great groove – California groovy, with just a touch of Latin – served up here with some great Mizell-infused touches – that rolling rhythm on the bottom, soaring instrumentation on the top, and some great Latin elements that are wrapped up warmly in the fusion! There's plenty of great keyboards, too – played both by Larry Mizell, and also by Mark Soskin – a range of Fender Rhodes, Arp, mini-moog, and more – all adding in the right sort of warmth to Roger's flute, and the album's rich array of percussion. Titles include "Kick", "Reachin", "Rio", "Gloria", "Overtime", and "Don't Leave". CD

✨✧ Roger (Roger Troutman)Saga Continues ... LP
Warner, 1984. Very Good ... $6.99
Crisply popping grooves from Roger – a great solo record from the voice of Zapp! The Saga Continues finds Roger still rocking his trademark effects laden vocals and vamping guitar work into the middle of the decade – with even tighter syncopated percussion, funky keys, and sharp synth bursts – sailing in a killer groove throughout! Roger produced the record along with Larry Troutman – and they bring in Maceo Parker for a horn solo and Ohio Player Billy Beck for keyboards as well! Tracks include a vocoder funk reading of Wilson Pickett's "Midnight Hour", plus "In The Mix", "Play Your Guitar Brother Roger", "The Break Song", "I Keep Trying", "Bucket Of Blood", "T C Song", and "Girl Cut It Out". LP, Vinyl record album

A tripped-out batch of freedom rock tunes – pulled together to accompany Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper's famous trip across the wasteland of late 60s America!

Two gems from the De Wolfe sound library – back to back on a single 45! "Way Star" is a wonderful mellow number – a slow groove and lots of electric piano lines – which you might recognize from the cut's use as a Madlib sample! "Moon Bird" has a similar dreamy vibe – great Rhodes with wordless female vocals gliding gently over the top – from the wonderful singer Barbara Moore! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Chappell/Farfalla (France), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Paul Dupont and his orchestra play some mighty nice tunes here – as the music was all penned by England's Roger Webb, best known for his work on some killer soundtracks, and for doing charts for some of that country's bigger singers! The charts are nice and jazzy, but also have some elements of 70s funk – uptempo with a clubby vibe in a few spots, but also more laidback and funky in others – with instrumentation that includes a fair bit of keyboards and guitar, next to acoustic work on trumpet, flute, and saxes! Titles include "Fragments", "Reaching For The Moon", "Downtown Incident", "Inter City", "New Yorker", "Snow Flower", "Rainbow Bridge", and "Lovelorn". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Roger Nichols & The Small Circle Of FriendsRoger Nichols & The Small Circle Of Friends (with bonus tracks) ... CD
A&M/Rev-Ola (UK), 1967. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of our favorite records of all time – a landmark piece of 60s pop that we'd easily rank with the best work by Brian Wilson, Millennium, Gary Usher, Van Dyke Parks, or any of those other California sunny-eyed hipsters! The style is sweet A&M Records vocal pop – with an emphasis on groovy harmonies in a male/female style that reminds us of We Five or The Free Design – but a lot hipper too, as its more adult in its themes – with this way of bringing innocence into play with mature thoughtfulness, but in subtle modes that are perfect for the unique album's placement on A&M! Nichols would later be known for his songwriting with Paul Williams, and was also part of a core group of underground LA pop luminaries that included the whole Warner crew under Lenny Waronker – and this album definitely has some of the sly undertones of some of the hippest late 60s Warner work as well. Titles include "Snow Queen", "Love So Fine", "Don't Take Your Time", "Can I Go", and "Kinda Wasted Without You". CD features 8 more bonus tracks that include "Our Day Will Come", "Love Song, Love Song", "Just Beyond Your Smile (mono 45)", "I'll Be Back (mono 45)", "Let's Ride" and more – plus extensive new liner notes!

✨✧ Roger GloverButterfly Ball & The Grasshopper's Feast (limited purple vinyl – with bonus tracks) (2019 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Purple/Cherry Red (UK), 1974. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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!

Alice Island BandSplendid Isolation ... LP
Warren/Wah Wah (Spain), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
One of the more obscure outings from the British underground folk scene at the start of the 70s – a set that's way way different than contemporary work on the bigger labels, and which sounds as if it was conceived and recorded a fair bit away from the mainstream! The instrumentation is a mix of electric and acoustic guitar, electric bass, piano, and harmonium – with vocals by all three members of the trio, but in ways that are only partly harmonious – as some of the moments are more sung or spoken at cross-purposes – maybe with the energy of some of the madder parts of the Giles Giles & Fripp record, but more acoustic overall. Tunes were all penned by Roger Moore, who produced but doesn't play on the record – and titles include "Devil's Island", "Nickel Man", "Package Tour Mona Lisa", "Smoke", "Goodbye Cindy", and "The Man That I Am".

Laurent Bardianne & Tigre D'Eau DouceLove Is Everywhere ... CD
Heavenly Sweetness (France), 2020. New Copy ... $16.99
A fresh set of contemporary soul jazz from French tenorist Laurent Bardianne – a jazz musician, but one with a tie to other stylistic communities – which you can hear in the record from the very first note! The quintet has a familiar lineup that includes Hammond B3, bass, drums, and percussion – the last from Roger Raspail – but the sound is often very different than the standard grooves you'd expect from such a setting, partly because the presence of Raspail does a nice job of complicating things in the rhythm department, as does the presence of a bassist next to any basslines that might be produced by the organ! Bardianne gets plenty of space to solo out front – often in a way that really matches the changed-up rhythms – and titles include "Kinshasa", "Cabane", "Song Dong Hee", "Apaches", "Insolente", "Everlasting Child", and "Love Is Everywhere" – plus the track "Star 5", which features a guest vocal appearance from Anthony Joseph.

BushmenBushmen ... CD
Beat Rocket, Mid 60s. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
Great garagey work from The Bushmen – a mid 60s combo from Fresno, CA – and one who reveled in the best gritty modes of the time! The vocals are stark, the rhythms are too, and there's some great swirling organ lines in there amidst all the guitar – a garage/psych blend at times, or more proto-punk at others – especially given the way that lead singer Roger Pollack has a punk-like ability to trade tunefulness for sheer raw power when he's putting over a tune! The group burned brightly, and definitely to strong to sustain – as the 9 tracks here are the only recorded evidence of their existence – titles that include "You Can't Sit Down", "Long Green", "Just Like Me", "Down Home Girl", "You Really Got Me", "The Last Time", and "Hitch Hike".

Culpeper's OrchardMountain Music – The Polydor Recordings 1970 to 1973 (Culpeper's Orchard/Second Sight/Going For A Song/bonus tracks) ... CD
Polydor/Esoteric (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
The complete Polydor Recordings of Culpeper's Orchard – a Danish group who are every bit as enigmatic as their name! The set begins with their debut – a great record from overlooked Danish group at the start of the 70s – a combo who could easily step between folksy and progressive modes, and who often had a warm sense of harmony in their vocals! Culpepper's Orchard are always very much their own sort of group – but they have a great way of shifting back and forth between key styles of the time – so that the harmonies might rival CSNY, while the acoustic elements might echo the darker corners of the Island Records scene, and more electric moments might link these guys to more of their Scandinavian contemporaries. The production is really top-shelf – clearly a big push on the group by Polydor at the time – and the album's one of those rock-solid European obscurities that really deserves wider recognition. Titles include "Gideon's Trap", "Blue Day's Morning", "Mountain Music", "Teaparty For An Orchard", and "Ode To Resistance". Next is Second Sight – wonderful work from Culpeper's Orchard – a group who equally balance headier elements with softer, more acoustic modes – often using harmonized vocals in a really great way! Unlike American acts of the early 70s, who were shifting from a CSN-inspired sound to soft rock, Culpeper's Orchard really keep things sharp here – mixing in some excellent guitar work to balance the vocals, so that they've got this double-pronged approach, and a more rocking vibe overall! Titles include "Julia", "Keyboard Waltz", "Late Night Woman Blues", Mind Pollution/Weather Report", and "Satisfied Mind". The group continue their strong run on the album Going For A Song – but also add in more acoustic modes, including mandolin and dobro, mixed with some steel guitar – to unlock more rootsy elements in their sound. Titles include "Trying To Find Home", "Good Days", "Alone In Pain", "Sailor", "New Day New Day", "Before It Began", and "Roger & Out". CD set also features the single cut "Steamhouse", and three more tracks from compilations! CD

Paquito D'RiveraCelebration ... LP
Columbia, 1988. Near Mint- ... $6.99
An ambitious record from Paquito D'Rivera, but a great one too – a set that features the Cuban saxophonist playing in a slightly expanded Latin jazz setting – with small combo grooving that's often augmented by larger string arrangements! The core groove is wonderful – very much in the style of Paquito's other work on Columbia – and the added arrangements only serve to deepen the sound, and flesh out the ideas, colors, and tones that have always been so resonant in his work. Paquito plays alto and clarinet – and other players include Claudio Roditi on trumpet, Makoto Ozone on piano, Fareed Haque on guitar, and Roger Kellaway on electric piano. Titles include "High Tide", "Wapango", "The Magic City", "We", "Heart Of The Kingdom", and "Chick". LP, Vinyl record album

Brian EnoApollo – Atmospheres & Soundtracks ... CD
EG, 1983. Used ... $7.99
An airy, atmospheric classic from Brian Eno – as you might guess from the title – a record that fits in very strongly with his initial Ambient series of albums, but which was also used to accompany a documentary film on the Apollo space flights! Despite that soundtrack use, though, the work is far more Eno than anything else – hardly cinematic in the conventional sense, and shaped nicely with help from Roger Eno and Daniel Lanois, both key collaborators in the decade. Some of the richer tracks almost preface a 4AD generation to come, but still have all the best Eno charms – and titles include "Under Stars", "The Secret Place", "Matta", "Signals", "An Ending (Ascent)", "Under Stars II", "Drift", "Silver Morning", "Deep Blue Day", "Weightless", "Always Returning", and "Stars".

One of Aretha's undisputed classics – a seminal session that furthered her deep soul agenda with key backings from Arif Mardin and Tom Dowd! The Sweet Inspirations provide sublime backing vocals behind Franklin's maturing delivery of the lyrics – and the music is by an all-star group of players that includes Spooner Oldham, Bobby Womack, Jimmy Johnson, King Curtis, Tommy Cogbill, Roger Hawkins, and even Eric Clapton! Cuts include "You Make Me Feel Like A Natural Woman", "Chain Of Fools", "Money Won't Change You", "Come Back Baby", and "Ain't No Way".

Johnny HammondGears (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Milestone/BGP (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
One of our favorite albums of all time – and a record that just gets better and better the more we listen to it – and we've listened to it for years! Johnny "Hammond" Smith began his career as a simple soul jazz organist – but by the time of this album, he'd teamed up with the mighty Larry Mizell, the genius arranger/producer who'd breathed new life into the careers of Donald Byrd and Bobbi Humphrey. Mizell works with Hammond in the same way he does with other jazz artists – by taking a groove that works best with their solo style, and slowly layering other instrumentation and effects on top of it, so that when the solo kicks in, it's supported on waves and waves of funky sounds and soulful grooves. Mizell and his brother Fonce both play keyboards on the record, and the rest of the group includes monster fusion players like Harvey Mason, Roger Glenn, Hadley Caliman, and Jerry Peters. The real treat is Johnny, though – as his solos are heavenly, the best of his 70s work, stripped mean and lean, laid in at just the right points. Includes the breakbeat classic "Shifting Gears", the house classic "Los Conquistadores Chocolates", and funky numbers "Fantasy" and "Tell Me What To Do". This stunning version adds in some killer bonus tracks – 6 never-heard cuts from the Milestone vaults, including "Song For My Family", "Funky Native", "Detroit Rainbow", "Can't We Smile (alt)", and slow and fast versions of "A Child's Love".

✨✧ Francoise HardyFrancoise Hardy (Tous Les Garcons Et Les Filles) ... CD
Vogue/Light In The Attic, 1962. New Copy ... $5.99 14.98
A seminal debut from the young Francoise Hardy, and a record that set the tone for a whole generation of French music to come! The album's a remarkable achievement – especially considering that Francoise was 18 at the time – filled with original tunes that have a really fresh presentation – not just in the lyrics, but in the overall presentation – which was a huge change from the overly emotive modes of the generation before. Hardy plays a fair bit of acoustic guitar along with her vocals – furthering the groovy feel of the set – and backings are by the orchestra of Roger Samyn, who adds in some slight rockish touches. Titles include "On Se Plait", "Oh Oh Cheri", "Ca A Rate", "Tous Les Garcons Et Les Filles", "La Fille Avec Toi", and "J'Suis D'Accord". CD

Linda HoylePieces Of Me/The Fetch (with bonus track) ... CD
Vertigo/Esoteric (UK), 1971. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
A pair of albums from this overlooked singer! First up is Pieces Of Me – the debut solo album from Linda Hoyle – an overlooked British singer, but a great one from the same generation that gave us Christine Perfect (later McVie) – graced with a similarly strong range and equal inspiration from earlier blues recordings! Yet also like Christine, Linda stretches out with these confident modes that really move past her roots – which also include previous performances with the group Affinity, although she's a much stronger solo act on her own! The core group of players on the set are more than enough of a pedigree of its quality – with guitars from Chris Spedding, drums from John Marshall, and bass from Jeff Clyne – plus piano, electric piano, production, and larger arrangements from Karl Jenkins – who really makes the whole thing sound wonderful. The set was also produced by Pete King for Ronnie Scott Productions – one more excellent piece of the pie – and titles include "Lonely Woman", "Backlash Blues", "Black Crow", "Morning For One", "Journey's End", "The Ballad Of Morty Mole", and "Pieces Of Me". The Fetch is a much different record overall, but still has Linda's great vocals at the core – done in recent years, which might be tipped off by the later cover image by Roger Dean – and done with an assortment of mellower modes served up by guitars (acoustic and electric), keyboards, and a mix of live drums and electronic rhythms. The instrumentation is relatively stripped-down, and Linda's vocals are still wonderful – almost the majesty of Norma Winstone in her later years, but more tunefully song-based – on titles that include "Maida Vale", "Cut & Run", "Brighton Pier", "The Fetch", "Snowy Night", and "Earth & Stars".

Etta JamesTell Mama – Complete Muscle Shoals Sessions ... CD
Chess/MCA, 1968. Used ... $8.99
A really unique album from the great Etta Jones – a session recorded down in Muscle Shoals, and not in Chicago – a setting that gives James an extra sort of deep soul power! The backing is nicely different than some of the other Chess material – killer work from the legendary Fame Studios lineup that included Barry Beckett on organ, Charles Chalmers on tenor, and Roger Hawkins on drums – all coming together with the great Rick Hall at the production helm! Etta's back in hard-belting R&B-tinged territory here – a bit more sophisticated than the 50s, with a good mix of hard soul numbers and ballads, opening up in some southern territory that really suits her well. Titles include "The Same Rope", "Watch Dog", "Tell Mama", "I'd Rather Go Blind", "Just A Little Bit", and "Don't Lose Your Good Thing". CD adds a whopping 10 bonus tracks to include other material recorded by Etta for the album – issued only on singles during the 60s, or never issued until this CD. Additional tracks include "Do Right Woman, Do Right Man", "Misty", "I've Gone Too Far", "You Took It", "I Worship The Ground You Walk On", and "You Got It". CD

Ruffhouse/Columbia, 1999. Very Good+ 2LP ... $39.99
Kool Keith adds Black Elvis to his always expanding collection of personalities. This time, two tracks produced by Kut Masta Kurt and the rest produced by Kool Keith. Maybe as a way of making up for saying "I don't neeeed Zapp, I don't neeeed Roger Troutman," on a record a few years back, Roger is featured on "Master of the Game", complete with the classic Zapp vocoder effects. Overall, the sound is similar to the Dr. Dooom LP, with maybe a few more futuristic verses and less emphasis on how everyone else is biting his style. Tracks include "Rockets On The Battlefield", "Livin Astro", "Supergalactic Lover", "I'm Seein Robots", "Static", "Black Elvis", "Maxi Curls", "Keith Turbo", "Fine Girls", "The Girls Don't Like The Job", "Clifton", "All The Time", and "I Don't Play" LP, Vinyl record album

Brother Music (Denmark), 1981. New Copy ... $9.99
The first album from Laid Back – the Danish duo who would soon dominate the world of breakdance with their electro-pop groove! This set has Laid Back sounding maybe a bit more rock at the core, but still with plenty of electronic touches around the edge – maybe a catchier version of DAF in the mid 80s, or a group that's traveling in the same pop territory as Peter Schilling or Nena – right down to their use of English language lyrics in the set! Those lyrics often have a nice accent, though – which also keeps things interesting – on titles that include "Maybe I'm Crazy", "China Girl", "Keep On Moving", "Take Me Home", "Roger", "Night Train Boogie", and "Man From The Moon". CD features a number of bonus tracks from singles – including "Walk On", "New Feeling", and some other mixes too. CD

Hat Hut/Corbett vs. Dempsey, 1979. New Copy 2CD Gatefold ... $15.99
Alto saxophonist Jimmy Lyons had a legendary run of performances on record with Cecil Taylor – but he sounds equally amazing here as a leader – given the space to really stretch out in a 3LP set that brings together a landmark live performance from 1978! Lyons works here with some lesser-known names – a quintet that includes Karen Borca on bassoon, Hayes Burnett on bass, Munner Bernard Fennell on cello, and Roger Blank on drums – but all players really catch the fire from his horn, and open up in a way that starts with loft jazz inspiration, then really soars to the stratosphere! The live setting of the album – recorded in a cinema – brings a really great quality of "space" to the overall production – and you can really feel Lyons and the group working together as their sounds and performance echo throughout the theater. Titles include the 32 minute "Mary Mary" – plus "Tortuga", "Breakout", "After You Left", and "Push Pull". CD

Carmen McRae really opens up on this sweet 70s set for Blue Note – expanding past the traditional jazz of her roots, and even some of the groovier work of her Atlantic years – into a sweeping, contemporary sound that's all adult, all the way! The vibe is great – in the same sophisticated, soulful territory as Marlena Shaw's recordings for Blue Note during the same stretch – yet also couched in those unmistakable McRae vocals – always with a crisp edge, even in the mellowest moments – a unique sound that no other singer can touch. The set was produced by Roger Kellaway – who also arranges, along with Dave Grusin and Byron Olson – all of whom give Carmen a set of sweeping larger backings that make for a fairly majestic album – on titles that include "I Am Music", "I Never Lied To You", "Like A Lover", "Who Gave You Permission", "A Letter For Anna Lee", "You Know Who You Are", and "I Ain't Here".

Raw DealSnakes & Ladders ... CD
Straight Ahead (Switzerland), 2004. Used ... $4.99
No raw deal here – as the artist comes out firmly on top, with a fantastic debut under his belt! The album's a stunner from the get-go – very much in the spirit of the 21st Century Soul you'd hear coming from Gilles Peterson's Worldwide show – and filled with a rich array of influences that include 70s soul jazz, classic Afro Funk, and some of the more cosmic sounds coming out of the recent London scene! The album's got a number of great talents in the mix – including old acid jazz legends Jacko Peake on saxes and Roger Beaujolais on vibes, as well as singers Gary Bardouille and Tanya Nia Saw – whose vocals really add a lot to the album's best tracks! Includes a great remake of Archie Shepp's "Blues For Brother George Jackson" – plus the tracks "Snakes & Ladders", "Afro Rainbow", "Father", "Get On Top", "No Limits", "Eye Fly", and "Baby Got Me Wrong".

✨✧ Tom ScottHair To Jazz – A Groovy Jazz & Pop Musical Experience ... CD
Flying Dutchman/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $13.99
Reedman Tom Scott always gives us something groovy – especially in his early years, when he could effortlessly blend together jazz and soul, funk and rock, and really come up with something new and unique! Here, Tom's in the best mode of his early work on Impulse Records – serving up one of our favorite versions ever of Galt MacDermot's music for Hair, done with a wickedly sharp groove all the way through! The combo here is a quartet with a great flair for unusual timings, arrangements, and instrumentation – and in addition to Scott's unusual phrasings on tenor, soprano sax, and saxcello (used with a bit of Echoplex!), Roger Kellaway plays piano with some great bell-like tones, alongside drums from John Guerin and bass from Chuck Domanico. Many numbers are quite jazz-based, with very open and hip solo work that recalls Scott's Rural Still Life album – and titles include "Easy To Be Hard", "Where Do I Go", "Hair", "Be In", "The Flesh Failures", and "Aquarius".

Flying Dutchman/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $13.99
Leave it to saxophonist Tom Scott to find something groovy in an unexpected place – in this case the music from Paint Your Wagon – the very unusual, somewhat awkward musical western of the late 60s! Tom strips away all of the words from the tunes, and instead goes at the tracks with that mix of soul jazz and funk that makes all of his early records so great – that vibe he explored on Impulse, which also is still burning strong here during his Flying Dutchman years – at a level that's so different from the smooth fusion of his big 70s years. The group's a quartet – with some wonderful work on piano and keyboards from Roger Kellaway – who's also a surprise here, and quite different than usual – as inventive as Scott is on his saxophones! Titles include "Hand Me Down That Can O Beans", "The Gospel Of No Name City", and "I'm On My Way" – all done in very groovy ways. CD

Horace SilverJody Grind ... CD
Blue Note, 1966. Used ... $14.99
A fantastic turning point for the great Horace Silver – a set that's still got the soul jazz groove of some of his earlier 60s hits – but which also has the pianist really making magic with some of the younger players on the scene – in a lineup that features the young Woody Shaw on trumpet, James Spaulding on alto and flute, and Tyrone Washington on tenor sax! As with Hank Mobley and Lee Morgan at the time, there's an openness to some of Silver's writing and arranging here that's really great – as if he's absorbing some of the qualities of the new thing generation, but never going there himself – and instead just finding a way to color his music with really fresh energy and tones. Larry Ridley is on bass and Roger Humphries is on drums – completing a really fantastic lineup – and titles include the title cut "The Jody Grind" – is an enduring funky jazz classic – plus "Blue Silver", "Mary Lou", "Mexican Hip Dance", "Grease Piece", and "Dimples".

Blue Note, 1963. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!

The album's truly one of the great ones – one of those Blue Notes that still makes you stop and pause when you hear it, even though you've heard it a million times in Starbucks and places like that. Horace Silver is working here at the height of his powers – lyrical, free, yet also damn soulful, in a style that makes for some of the most evocative jazz-based grooves cut to wax at the time. Carmell Jones is in the group, and plays some of his best trumpet ever – and Joe Henderson really drives the whole session home with some incredible tenor work. Other group members include Teddy Smith on bass and Roger Humphries on drums – and titles include the instantly famous "Song For My Father", plus "Que Pasa", "The Kicker", and "Calcutta Cutie".

A beautiful entry in this long-running series – a continuing testament to the darker sides of American life that formed the subject matter for so much of postwar country music! The package brings together some great tunes by bigger names of the time – not entirely hits, but the kind of material that these top-shelf talents can turn out with effortless ease – bringing just the right balance of subtle emotion to send the whole thing home in just the right way! These aren't overdone weepies, but honest songs about the tragedy that is life – served up here on 16 titles that include "One Dyin & A Buryin" by Roger Miller, "The Drunken Driver" by Ferlin Husky, "I'm Low Low Low" by Loy Clingman, "The Town That Broke My Heart" by Bobby Bare, "All My Trials" by Anita Carter, "Bury The Bottle With Me" by Dick Curless, "None Of My Business" by Henson Cargill, "Jim Johnson" by Porter Wagoner, "The Old Pine Tree" by Red Sovine, and "Goin To Hell On A Sled" by John D Loudermilk.

An amazing set of offbeat numbers from the darker side of country music in the 60s – tracks that really show the changing currents of the scene, and which open up even more that quality of heartbreak that was always present in the music! Some of the songs here deal more honestly with political and family themes, some are more personal overall – and there's a fantastic range of music within – just what you'd expect from the same folks who gave you the Hillbillies In Hell compilations! Titles include "The Family Way" by Justin Tubb, "Hide My Sin" by Lorene Mann, "No Meaning & No End" by Hank Williams Jr, "Cold Cold Hands" by Lawton Williams, "Four Chrome Wheels" by Trooper Jim Foster, "The Animal Of A Man" by Roger Miller, "Teddy Bear Song" by Norma Jean, "Your Credit Card Won't Get You Into Heaven" by Bobby Bare, and "Push The Panic Button" by Stonewall Jackson.

✨✧ Blue MinkTime Of Change ... LP
Parlophone/EMI, 1972. Very Good Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Unlike most of their contemporaries at the time, Blue Mink were one of those rare groups who actually seemed to get a bit more rootsy as their work went on – picking up even more styles from American music of years back, and using it to forge their own UK mix of redneck rock and rough-edged soul! This album's got an earthiness that reminds us a fair bit of some of the hipper singer/songwriter types on A&M as the 70s began – although obviously, it's a group effort – and like previous sides from Blue Mink, seems to be a well-weighted collaboration between group members Madeline Bell, Alan Parker, Herbie Flowers, Roger Cook, Barry Morgan, and Roger Coulam. Songs are a bit more sophisticated than before – and, as you might hear on A&M, even though the overall format is rootsy, there's some complicated instrumental twists and turns that keep things from just being copycat of the old days. Titles include "Count Me In", "Sunday", "We Will Get By", "One Smart Fellow", "Warm Days Warm Nights", and "Love & You & Me". LP, Vinyl record album

East West/Inner City, 1979. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Andrew Hill's best records of the 70s – a soulful trio recording performed with Richard Davis on bass and Roger Blank on drums – and a real return to the glory of his 60s material! Hill's piano still has that fresh angular modern approach of his Blue Note sides – but the bass and drum work on the album ground it a bit more – adding in some additional rhythmic components, and giving the session the spiraling searching mode of some of the other Japanese trio sessions from the time, in the spirit of the best recordings on the East Wind label for which this gem was recorded! Hill wasn't always at his best in the decade, but he definitely shines here on some long, very expressive tracks – with titles that include "Mudflower", "Nefertiti", "Blue Black", and "Relativity".

The backing is nicely different than some of the other Chess material – killer work from the legendary Fame Studios lineup that included Barry Beckett on organ, Charles Chalmers on tenor, and Roger Hawkins on drums – all coming together with the great Rick Hall at the production helm! Etta's back in hard-belting R&B-tinged territory here – a bit more sophisticated than the 50s, with a good mix of hard soul numbers and ballads, opening up in some southern territory that really suits her well. Titles include "The Same Rope", "Watch Dog", "Tell Mama", "I'd Rather Go Blind", "Just A Little Bit", and "Don't Lose Your Good Thing". LP, Vinyl record album

Art's working here with his regular rhythm section of David Williams on bass and Carl Burnett on drums – plus Roger Kellaway on piano, who's a surprisingly solid addition to the group. Kellaway's lines aren't as bold as some of George Cables' on other Pepper dates, but that makes for an interesting change – and creates a sensitivity on some of the best numbers. In addition to alto sax, Art also plays a bit of clarinet on the date – and titles include "Mambo Koyama", "Landscape", "Ophelia", and "Over The Rainbow". CD

Pope's sound is great – nice and crisp – and other players include Georges-Edouard Nouel on piano, Roger Raspail on percussion, and Chris Henderson on drums – on titles that include "Shades Of", "No Boundaries", "Third Eyes", "This Way", and "Face Reality".

Ace (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the coolest compilations we've ever heard from Ace Records – a really special set that follows in the tradition of their other St Etienne cafe/pub collections – and like those gems, a very different package than usual! This time around, the duo of Bob Stanley and Pete Wiggs (who you'll also know from the Croydon International label) focus on an overlooked strand of British sounds at the start of the 70s – music that's moody, often jazzy, and almost always touched with a hint of blue – a kind of melancholic moment after the heady 60s – one that takes into stock all the great changes that had happened in the music, but delivers them in this laidback style that's completely unselfconscious. This isn't singer/songwriter material, and it's not progressive either – although it carries light traces of some of the best of those scenes – and if we had to try to dig for a tag for these tracks at all, we might use the term "folk funk" that was bandied about years ago – for cuts that have a vibe that's complex yet personal, and lots of jazziness in the phrasing. Titles include "Last Cloud Home" by The Orange Bicycle, "Love Song With Flute" by Caravan, "Moon Bird" by The Roger Webb Sound, "Early Morning Eyes" by The Peacock Band, "JTL" by T2, "Evening Shade" by Alan Parker & Alan Hawkshaw, "Windfall" by Offspring, "Never Let Go" by Camel, "Bottles" by Belle Gonzalez, "Watching White Stars" by The Way We Live, "Wise Man In Your Heart" by Daevid Allen, "Til The Christ Come Back Home" by Bill Fay, "Pamela" by Scot Mist, and "O Caroline" by Matching Mole – a song which perfectly sums up the mood of the set.

Not really the house of ages – given that most of these cuts are so rare, they're only making their first appearance here – but a great little collection that reminds us that there's still so much to discover in the funky underground of the last few years of the 20th Century! Jeremy Newell really knocks it out of the park with this one – and comes up with a deep, soulful collection of house tracks from the farthest reaches of the scene – either work that only appeared on very obscure singles, or didn't even make it past tape back in the day – leaping forth here with a wickedly groovy sound that's more than worth the wait. Titles include "Take Me Higher" by Jimi Polo, "I Promise (more beats for passion mix)" by Mark Rogers, "Keep On Pressing (KOT orig mix)" by Sean Grant, "More I Get" by Teleport feat Russell Patterson, "Yo Razor" by Arts & Craft with Razor Cain, "Don't Run Away" by Soul Dhamma, "When I See You (tight voc)" by Frank Youngwerth with Ernie, "Freak It (Tony Humprhies inst mix)" by Johanna, "Mainline (Roger S Ego trip mix)" by Tribal House, "We Can Make It (unreleased dub)" by UBQ Project, and "Deeper (Benji Candelario's deeper than deep unreleased mix)" by Susan Clark.

A triple-length set – one that brings together two classic Charly Records compilations! The bulk of the set is from the great 2LP collection Mr Joe's Jambalaya – an amazing collection of New Orleans soul from the legendary Minit and Instant labels – both imprints under the guidance of producer Joe Banashak – the "Mr Joe" in the title! The work here includes a good number of lesser-known gems from the Crescent City – mixed in with a few key classics that are really well-chosen numbers that illustrate the kind of important influence that New Orleans would have on soul music for generations to come! Grooves are mostly gritty, with more than a few hints of funk in the mix – and there's plenty of tracks that are filled with that tripling rhythmic mode that was quite specific to New Orleans at the time. Titles include "I Need Money" by Lee Dorsey, "The Sad One" by Eddie Lang, "The La La Man (part 1)" by Oliver Morgan, "Go Back Home" by Allen Toussaint & The Stokes, "Pass The Hatchet (part 1)" by Roger & The Gypsies, "It Will Stand" by The Showmen, "I'm Gonna Put Some Hurt On You" by Raymond Lewis, "In The Night" by Chucik Carbo, "Green Door" by Eskew Reeder, "Something You Got" by Barbara George, and "Beverly Baby" by Allen & Allen. The remaining third of the package is from the collection Loaded Down With The Blues – another compilation of Joe Banashak recordings, but one that focuses a bit more on gritty, bluesy material – mostly from the late 50s and early 60s. Titles include "Tight Like That" by Edgar Blancahrd, "Loaded Down" by Matthew Boogie Jake Jacobs, "Way In The Middle Of The Night" by Nolan Pitts, "Ain't Broke Ain't Hungry" by Polka Dot Slim, "Moanin & Screamin" by Diamond Joe, and "Nervous Condition" by The Pitter Pats. 2CDs, and 46 tracks in all!

Monumental Afro Soul from El Rego Et Ses Commandos – El Rego's best recordings from the late 60s to early 70s – a beautifully done compilation put together by Daptone and Frank Gossner, the deep digging West African music expert behind Voodoo Funk! Theophile Do-Rego is a legend in his native Benin, essentially credited as the godfather of Benin funk – but to date, he hasn't been celebrated around the world nearly as famously as the superstars of African music hailing from Nigeria and Ghana. That's something that can change really quickly if enough people pick up this truly great compilation of pioneering recordings. Singer El Rego and his excellent, diversely capable band – sax and flute by Baboni Oudou, sax by Michel Diogo, guitar by Oscar De Souza, trumpet by Emmanuel Ganssounou, guitar by Roger Coffi, tumba by Marcelin Kpohonon, additional vocals by Christian Agueh, and bass by band leader Paul Hounnou – take a tighter approach to funky soul. Just a couple tracks on this set roll past the 4 minute mark – which gives it a tighter soul sound, along with some Benin blues and some riveting JB-indebted vocal affections. We owe Voodoo Funk and Daptone big for putting this together! Includes "Feeling You Got", "Zon Dede", "E Nan Mian Duku", "Dkobime", "Dis-Moi Oui", "Djobime", "Hessa" (the centerpiece of the album, 3 minutes of Afro Soul perfection. . .the whole set is great, but this track is unforgettable), "Kpon Fi La", "Do Do Baya", "Vive Le Renouveau", "Achuta", "Cholera" and "Ke Amon-Gbetchea".

An airy, atmospheric classic from Brian Eno – as you might guess from the title – a record that fits in very strongly with his initial Ambient series of albums, but which was also used to accompany a documentary film on the Apollo space flights! Despite that soundtrack use, though, the work is far more Eno than anything else – hardly cinematic in the conventional sense, and shaped nicely with help from Roger Eno and Daniel Lanois, both key collaborators in the decade. Some of the richer tracks almost preface a 4AD generation to come, but still have all the best Eno charms – and titles include "Under Stars", "The Secret Place", "Matta", "Signals", "An Ending (Ascent)", "Under Stars II", "Drift", "Silver Morning", "Deep Blue Day", "Weightless", "Always Returning", and "Stars". 2LP version features a complete bonus album titled For All Mankind – 11 more instrumentals packaged here with a remastered version of the Apollo album, and a booklet of notes!

The group also features vibes from Bernard Lubat – ringing out strongly from beneath the horns – and the rest of the combo features Francois Guin and Raymond Fonseque on trombones, Alby Cullaz on bass, and Jacques Thollot on drums – all coming together in a style that's aware of modern ideas, but also swings strongly too – kind of like the most inventive late 60s moments from the Clark Boland Big Band, or the Gustav Brom ensemble.

The title cut's a killer – a hard-vamping number that pushed funk further into the mainstream back in the day – and lots of the rest of the album follows suit, by bringing in some of the rougher King Curtis edges that usually only showed up on b-sides of 45s – while other full albums usually focused on sweeter sounds. There's a few of those here too – but even those tracks have a looser, more personal feel than before – not as much "perfect" soul sax, and a bit more grit. Arrangements are by Arif Mardin and King Curtis – and Duane Allman plays guiter on some cuts! Titles include "The Weight", "Sing A Simple Song", "Instant Groove", "Hey Jude", "Games People Play", "La Jeanne", and "Foot Pattin". Get Ready is sly soul from the great King Curtis – one of his last albums ever, and one of his best as well! There's a hip sort of edge to the record that's different from the Curtis groove of the mid 60s – less standard soul instrumental covers, and a much more righteous feel overall – part of the vibe that King had been crafting for others in the late 60s Atlantic studios, and partly the funky undercurrents that would often only show up on some of his 45 releases for the label! The backing group here is really great – with rhythm work from Eddie Hinton on guitar, Barry Beckett on keyboards, David Hood on bass, and Roger Hawkins on drums – and solo moments from Cornell Dupree on lead guitar, and both Joe Newman and Ernie Royal on trumpets. King produced the record himself, and one cut features slightly different instrumentation – with organ by Jimmy Smith and piano by Richard Tee. Titles include "Floatin", "Sugar Foot", "Soulin", "Teasin", "Let It Be", "Someday We'll Be Together", "Something", and "Promenade". CD

✨✧ MelanieBorn To Be ... CD
Buddah/Wounded Bird, 1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Melanie's a folkie at heart, but one who's very open to new ideas too – as you'll hear in this surprisingly offbeat set from the late 60s! The record mixes Melanie's raspy, almost eerie vocal approach with some compelling charts from Roger Kellaway – who respects the folk impulses at the core, but also brings in some unusual inflections in the other instrumentation – that post-folk approach that was showing up in records by Leonard Cohen and others of the singer/songwriter generation. The difference is subtle, but very striking – and very different than the way the set would have been recorded a few years previously. Titles include "Christopher Robin", co-written with AA Milne – plus "In The Hour", "I'm Back In Town", "Bobo's Party", "Close To It All", "Merry Christmas", and "I Really Loved Harold". CD

✨✧ RamonesEnd Of The Century (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Sire/Warner/Rhino, 1980. Used ... Out Of Stock
The Roger Corman-Phil Spector year of the mighty Ramones! End Of The Century is a huge departure from the 1-2-3-4 burst and roar of the first 4 Ramones albums – a big ol' Phil Spector production – recorded concurrently with the filming of late 70s hottie PJ Soles dancing around in her underwear with a shy and shell-shocked Joey in Rock And Roll High School! Lord knows that End Of The Century was the end of the Ramones as we knew and loved them on LP (they remained great live until the very end), but it holds up very well and the big sound brings a smile. Plus it's got "Chinese Rock", worth the price alone. Other tracks include "Do You Remember Rock'N'Roll Radio?", "I'm Affected", "Danny Says", "The Return Of Jack & Judy", "Let's Go", "Baby, I Love You", "I Can't Make It On Time", "This Ain't Havana", "Rock N Roll High School", "All The Way" and "High Risk Insurance". This CD also comes with 6 bonus tracks. CD

✨✧ Diana RossDiana ... LP
Motown, 1980. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A record so big they dropped the "Ross" from Diana's name – just to show how large the lady was living at the end of the 70s! The album was a key set in the solo years of Diana's career – a back to basics dancefloor effort done with impeccable production by Bernard Edwards and Nile Rogers – often in that tightly snapping mode that made Chic so great, a sound that really breathed new life into Ross' sound at the time! Roger's fast-riffing guitar touches cook the album up beautifully – pushing a catchy pop groove into the massive hits "Upside Down" and "I'm Coming Out" – both numbers that have aged surprisingly well over the years. Other tracks include "Tenderness", "My Old Piano", "Now That You're Gone", "Friend To Friend", and "Give Up". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Horace SilverSong For My Father (RVG remaster edition) ... CD
Blue Note, 1963. Used ... Out Of Stock
An incredible record – the kind of album that only Blue Note could put out, and an instant classic that will sound wonderful forever! The album's truly one of the great ones – one of those Blue Notes that still makes you stop and pause when you hear it, even though you've heard it a million times in Starbucks and places like that. Horace Silver is working here at the height of his powers – lyrical, free, yet also damn soulful, in a style that makes for some of the most evocative jazz-based grooves cut to wax at the time. Carmell Jones is in the group, and plays some of his best trumpet ever – and Joe Henderson really drives the whole session home with some incredible tenor work. Other group members include Teddy Smith on bass and Roger Humphries on drums – and titles include the instantly famous "Song For My Father", plus "Que Pasa", "The Kicker", and "Calcutta Cutie". This great CD reissue also adds a whole bunch of extra cuts to the original album, including new material never heard before, and a trio version of "Que Pasa". 10 cuts in all! CD

Seminal work from Roger Troutman and Zapp – a killer batch of cuts that forever changed the sound of funk! The group's "wheeeeeeet/whomp!" sound is very firmly in place by the time of this release – and the sound here is even more electric than their debut – a groundbreaking style that went onto inspire countless acts of the electro generation, and a fair bit of hip hoppers too! Vocals are by Roger, Bad Bobby Glover, and Gregory Jackson – and Zapp's basslines really kick the whole thing into gear – as do the keyboards, too. Titles include "A Touch Of Jazz (Playin Kinda Ruff Part 2)", "Dance Floor", "Doo Wa Ditty (Blow That Thing)", "Come On", "Do You Really Want An Answer", and "Playin Kinda Ruff".

Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The sounds of summer in the years before the Beach Boys and surf music – songs that proclaim the glory of the warmest months of the year, but in raunchy styles from the early years of rock and roll! Artists run the gamut from rockabilly singers, to R&B groups, to some surprisingly strong contributions from more pop-oriented acts – and as with other Bear Family packages of this nature, the whole thing is plenty playful – put together with a good deal of wit in the song choices and presentation! Titles include "Sunday Barbecue" by Tennessee Ernie Ford, "The Sun Is Shining" by Elmore James, "Banana Split For My Baby" by Louis Prima, "Summer's Coming (demo)" by Ronnie Dawson, "Strollin On The Beach" by The Hollywood Flames, "Beach Time" by Roger Smith, "Suntan Tattoo" by The Valiants & Sandy Vale, "Summertime Love" by Roy Head & The Traits, "Beach Comber" by Jo Ann Campbell, "Night Theme' by The Mark II, "Moonlight Swim" by Nick Noble, "26 Miles" by The Four Preps, "Sunglasses After Dark" by Dwight Whitey Pullen, "Summertime Rock" by Rodney & The Blazers, and "The Big Beach Party" by The Jades with Pacer's Music.

✨✧ VariousFrench New Wave (Et Dieu Crea La Femme/Un Temoin Dans La Ville/Jazz Sur Seine/Eva/Jules Et Jim/Tires Sur Le Pianiste/Le Meprise/A Bout De Souffle) (5CD set) ... CD
DOL (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 5CD ... Out Of Stock
5CDs' worth of great music from the Nouvelle Vague – the French New Wave of Cinema that emerged at the end of the 50s – and which often featured a fair bit of jazz in the mix for its soundtracks! CD1 features the Paul Misraki score for Et Dieu Crea La Femme – And God Created Woman – an early Brigitte Bardot film directed by Roger Vadim, full of jazzy numbers by Misraki, presented here without the Bardot narration on other versions of the soundtrack. The CD features 23 tracks in all – with bonus material too! CD2 features great work from tenorist Barney Wilen – his full soundtrack to the film Un Temoin Dans La Ville, plus his own jazz album Jazz Sur Seine! CD3 features the Michel Legrand music for Eva – a perfect blend of Legrand's earlier straighter jazz work, with some of his later talent for groovy orchestrations. The overall feel is quite dark – with the kind of jazz-based soundscapes that were showing up in some other French soundtracks at the time, and sweet little noirish feel. CD4 features three scores by Georges Delerue – all for films directed by Francois Truffaut – Jules Et Jim, Tires Sur Le Pianiste, and Le Mepris – all sounding great together. CD5 features Martial Solal's score for A Bout De Souffle – a film best known as Breathless around the world, and an early movie by Jean Luc Godard that perhaps gave Martial Solal his biggest early global exposure! Solal's sharp, modern tones on the piano are very firmly in place here – but there's also lots of more dynamic jazz instrumentation too – of the sort that rivals other French new wave soundtracks by artists like Miles Davis, Barney Wilen, or Art Blakey. Yet Solal, like Godard, is perhaps a bit more sophisticated in his musical approach – and often breaks out into these little paintings in jazz, a bit like some of Elmer Bernstein on our favorite jazzy late 50s soundtracks.

✨✧ VariousMainstream Soul Survey – Man Needs A Woman ... CD
P-Vine (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A rare look at the soul music side of Mainstream Records – a label that's mostly known for its famous jazz fusion sides of the early 70s – but who also turned out a fair bit of great soul work as well! Most of the Mainstream soul tracks were only ever issued as 45s – making this collection even more valuable in the way that it scoops up countless bits of lost wax, and brings them together in a whopping 26 track package – much of which has never been reissued before! The titles here all originally appeared on the Mainstream, IX Chains, and Brown Dog label – and although Mainstream often had a reputation for tight production on its jazz, there's a nicely rough-edged feel to most of these numbers – styles that echo southern soul and New Jersey indie work from the same time. Equally important is the fact that many of these cuts represent obscure early material by artists who would score much bigger on later labels – a great help to filling in the cracks in their early careers. Titles include "You Can Be Cured", and "Take A Few More Steps" by Randolph Brown, "We're Not Too Young To Fall In Love" and 'When Something Is Wrong With My Baby" by Jackie Beavers, "It's All In The Back Of Me Now" and "Everyone Has Someone" by Linda Perry, "Where Can I Run" by The Underground Express, "Call On Me" and "Intruder" by LJ Reynolds, "Down On Me" by Jeany Reynolds, "Satisfy My Woman" by Calvin Arnold, "Grass Ain't Greener" by Charles Beverly, "We Gonna Make It" by Roger Hatcher, "You Shot Me" by The Georgia Soul Twisters, and "Business Deal" by Doris Duke.

✨✧ Laurent Bardianne & Tigre D'Eau DouceLove Is Everywhere ... LP
Heavenly Sweetness (France), 2020. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A fresh set of contemporary soul jazz from French tenorist Laurent Bardianne – a jazz musician, but one with a tie to other stylistic communities – which you can hear in the record from the very first note! The quintet has a familiar lineup that includes Hammond B3, bass, drums, and percussion – the last from Roger Raspail – but the sound is often very different than the standard grooves you'd expect from such a setting, partly because the presence of Raspail does a nice job of complicating things in the rhythm department, as does the presence of a bassist next to any basslines that might be produced by the organ! Bardianne gets plenty of space to solo out front – often in a way that really matches the changed-up rhythms – and titles include "Kinshasa", "Cabane", "Song Dong Hee", "Apaches", "Insolente", "Everlasting Child", and "Love Is Everywhere" – plus the track "Star 5", which features a guest vocal appearance from Anthony Joseph.

✨✧ Francoise Hardy/Sacha DistelFrancoise Hardy/Canta Per Voi In Italiano/Swinging Jazz Guitarist (3CD set) ... CD
El (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
A very cool little package – one that's got one CD of early work by French singer Francois Hardy – and two more CDs that feature lots of fantastic jazz material from Sacha Distel! CD1 features Hardy at her early best – singing blue-tinged French pop on both her debut album, and on a special album recorded in Italian – which features backings by Enzio Leoni, and tunes that are a nice variation from her better-known French material – especially as a number of tracks are reworked Italian versions of tunes from the first album! Titles include "Ca A Rate", "Oh Oh Cheri", "Il Est Parti Un Jour"," J'Suis D'Accord", "C'Est A L'Amour Auquel Je Pense", "L'Eta Dell'Amore", "Ci-Sto", "Per Tanto Tempo", "L'Amore Va", and "Quelli Della Mia Eta". The real treat here might be the music by Sacha Distel, though – as the artist is also known as a French pop singer, with many hits – but works here as a jazz guitarist, with a strongly chromatic sound! Amidst his vocal recordings, Sacha made a fair number of early jazz albums too – and nearly all of them are here on the set. The package features the EP Hommage A Django, with arrangements by Claude Bolling; another EP done in co-leadership with reedman Bobby Jaspar; performances with the Bobby Jaspar All Stars at Club Saint Germain; a quartet date with guitarist Jean-Pierre Sasson; Distel's famous album with pianist John Lewis, which also features great tenor from Barney Wilen; the very rare Jazz Today record, with trombone, arrangements, and songs by Billy Byers; and a few tracks from the soundtrack to Roger Vadim's Pride chapter of The Seven Deadly Sins. 36 Distel tracks in all – and 22 more by Hardy – all with a nice booklet of notes!

✨✧ Dan PennFame Recordings – 24 Gems From The Writer's Mid 60s Apprenticeship At Fame ... CD
Fame/Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A tremendous discovery in soul music – previously unreleased demos from the legendary Dan Penn – one of the key songwriters in the Fame Studios/Muscle Shoals scene of the 60s! Dan's tunes had an undeniable impact on southern soul for decades to come – yet Penn hardly issued any singles himself – just sang on these in-house recordings as a way of demonstrating the strength of his songs! Yet Penn's vocals are amazing – as raspy and soulful as any of the big names who recorded his work – and backed here by superb Fame support by the core combo of Spooner Oldham on piano and organ, Jimmy Johnson on guitar, and Roger Hawkins on drums. Oldham co-wrote most of the tunes with Penn, and really gives them a slow-burning, all-soul feel with his keyboard lines – and although demo recordings, the production here is every bit as great as commercially-released material from Fame – making the collection sparkle like the lost album (or albums!) that Dan Penn never had at the time. Titles include "Keep On Talking", "Feed The Flame", "Strangest Feeling", "I Do", "It Tears Me Up", "Uptight Good Woman", "Far From The Maddening Crowd", "The Puppet", "Long Ago", "Slippin Around With You", and "Do Something".

A really cool set that looks at the rise of late 50s beatnik culture from a variety of different styles – not just the jazz and poetry that marked that scene's biggest contribution to music – but also the wealth of modes that inspired those years too! The 3CD package features a stunning 57 titles in all – and begins in the late 30s with hard-edged small combo work and jive-heavy vocal tracks – then runs past WWII to include some bebop, R&B, and very cool vocal numbers – before moving into Greenwich Village classic sounds in a mix of spoken word, jazz poetry, and even a bit of folk! The booklet is filled with notes and history in both English and French – and titles include "The Beat Generation" by Bob McFadden, "High School Drag" by Phillipa Fallon, "The Nazz" by Lord Buckley, "American Haikus" by Jack Kerouac & Al Cohn, "Route 66" by Bobby Troup, "Gator Tail (part 2)" by Cootie Williams, "Rock & Roll" by Wild Bill Moore, "Killin Jive" by Cats & The Fiddle, "You'se A Viper" by Stuff Smith, "Scrapple From The Apple" by Les Double Six, "Kookie's Mad Pad" by Ed Byrnes, "So What" by Eddie Jefferson, "Howl" by Allen Ginsberg, "I Sing Of Olaf" by Roger Steffans, "Say Man" by Bo Diddley, "Shulie A Bop" by Sarah Vaughan, and "The Rocket Ship Show" by Jocko Henderson.

Sidsel's one of the few singers to emerge from the scene – and he's got a spare breathy voice that's halfway between Bjork and Jay Jay Johansson – singing in English, but slightly off-kilter because of his accent, and the way the vocals are layered amidst moody electronics and soundscapey backdrops. Music on the album is created with help from Bugge Wesseltoft, Nils Petter Molvaer, and Roger Ludvigsen – and titles include "Angel", "Undertow", "You Cover Time", "Travelling Still", and "Blessed Instant".

The style's kind of a left-of-center take on the Zapp groove of the time – a bit rougher and more street-conscious at points – with beats that are bold and basslines that are bound to make your speakers shake a bit up on the shelf – all while the group delivers some catchy call-type vocals that keep things moving nicely.

Strut (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
A really riveting collection of music from a scene that we've hardly heard much from before – upbeat grooves from the island nation of Madagascar, all recorded at the end of the 70s and start of the 80s – but with a vibe that sounds much older overall! The one thing that really stands out in a number of these tracks is the strong use of organ and keyboards – often in this full, swirling sort of style – infusing the grooves next to the more familiar percussion and guitar lines you might hear in other African music from the generation – although even those elements are used in ways that are pretty darn unique! The tracks often have this raw intensity that comes from both the instrumentation and the way things are put together – and the whole package is a really refreshing change from other oft-tread musical territory on the continent. Titles include "Mama" by Roger Georges, "Andosy Mora" by Jean Kelly Et Bastn, "Ngoma Hoe" by Papa James, "Izahay Mpamita" by Mahaleo, "Faraina" by Feon'Ala, "Soaliza" by Terak Anosy Group, "Oa Niny E" by Nino Rafah, "Razana Tsy Ho Meloko" by Michael, "Jazz Sega" by Jeannot Rabeson Et Son Orchestre, "Tokatoka" by Kaiamba Orchestra, "Zaka Tiako Mamolaka Keriko" by Atrefy Andriana, and "Andeha Hanarato" by Los Matadores.

The title's an apt one here, as Jimmy Rogers was one of the many bluesmen who started out in the south, but headed to Chicago for greater fame – which was a good thing for Chess Records, who managed to come some of these great sides in the 50s! Rogers both sings and plays guitar – the later of which has a sometimes snakey quality that almost echoes a slight bit of jazz – a mode that recalls some of the inventions T Bone Walker was putting down at the time, but a little bit rootsier overall. Players on these sessions include Muddy Waters, Little Walter, Otis Spann, and Willie Dixon – and tracks include "Money Marbles & Chalk", "Ludella", "You're The One", "Back Door Friend", "I Used To Have A Woman", "Sloppy Drunk", "Blues Leave Me Alone", and "Walking By Myself".
