Roy C HammondMore Sex & More Soul ... CD
Mercury/Playback, 1977. Used ... $6.99
Classic 70s southern soul from Roy C – a brilliant follow-up to his excellent Sex & Soul album, but a great little record that more than stands on its own! Although Roy's roots are in New York City, his sound here is one that echoes strongly with the changes going on down in the Memphis, Jackson, and Miami soul scenes at the time – an approach to southern soul that still maintains the rootsiness of the vocals, yet which wraps them up in a warmer, more adult sort of mode – almost inspired by the work of Al Green, but a bit more down home. Titles include "From The Outside Looking In", "Sure Nuff In Love With You", "After Loving You", "Show Me Love, I'll Show You Pain", and "Great Great Grandson Of A Slave". CD

✨✧ Roy C HammondSex & Soul ... CD
Mercury/Playback, 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sex, soul, and lots more too – a sublime solo set from the great Roy C Hammond – recorded after his initial work with The Honeydrippers! The approach here is much more deep soul than his work with that group – very much in the best sort of Fame or Hi Records vibe – with a slow-burning sound that's a nice evolution past the earliest modes of southern soul, and which is perfectly suited to the sophistication of Roy's vocals! The set was the first in Hammond's solo run for Mercury Records – almost ignored at the time, but later the stuff of legend – thanks to writers like Peter Guaralnick, and others who've finally given Roy his due. The arrangements and instrumentation are wonderful – much more indie soul than you'd expect – on a par with the best early 70s material on Stax/Volt – and titles include "I Found A Man In My Bed", "Back Into My Arms", "Open Letter To The President", "Don't Blame The Man" and "I'll Never Leave You Lonely".

VariousBadmeaningood Vol 3 – Compiled By Peanut Butter Wolf ... CD
Ultimate Dilemma, 1970s/1980s/2003. Used ... $11.99
We can't think of a better title for this excellent compilation from Peanut Butter Wolf. The Badmeaningood series is a personal hip hop chronicle from the compiler, and as you'd expect from PBW, the definition here is taking somewhat less than literally, though there's no shortage of back in the day old school classics, mixed side by side with some unlikely candidates, but in a way that makes more than perfect sense. Mixed continuously front to back like your favorite mix tape this set takes you from Grandmaster Flash's "New Adventures Of Grandmaster Flash" to Keni Burke's "Risin' To The top (Snowboy's acoustic mix)" and stopping at all points in between, whether it's Iron Butterfly's "Soul Experience", Johnny Hammond's "Fantasy", The Cold Crush Brothers "Punk Rock Rap", Prince Far I's "Black Man Land", the Jungle Brother's "I'm Gonna Do You", the 45 King's "Funk Box (We Want To Hear The Beat box)", Roy Ayer's "Can't You See Me", The Human League's "Hard Times" and Alicia Myers "Don't Stop What You're Doin" and many more!

✨✧ Farnell NewtonRippin & Runnin ... CD
Posi tone, 2020. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A tremendous trumpeter, set up here in his best format to date – a really heavy duty quartet that features tenor from Brandon Wright, drums from Rudy Royston, and Hammond from Brian Charette – who blows us away even more than usual with his skills on both the keys and the pedals at the bottom! Royston's drums are always great – and here, he's got this snapping, crackling energy that seems to light a fuse right from the very first note – which Charette fans into full flames of sound, topped by these bold lines and soaring solos from Newton and Wright – two horns that have a really rich power together, before breaking off into really wonderful solos. The whole thing's great – a cut above for even the always-great Posi-Tone label – and titles include "Holding Still", "The Roots", "Another Day Another Jones", "Gas Station Hot Dog", and "The Five AM Strut".

✨✧ Teddy EdwardsHeart & Soul ... LP
Contemporary, 1962. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
One of our favorite albums by Teddy Edwards – and one with some organ in the group! This obscure quartet side has Gerry Wiggins playing a rare bit of Hammond – grooving the group with a lean and open-ended soul jazz approach that really has Edwards blowing at his best! The style sits right up there next to Gene Ammons' best albums of the time, and the rest of the group features Leroy Vinnegar on bass and Milt Turner on drums. Titles include "Smokin", "No Regrets", "A Bag Of Blues", "Wiggin", and "Little Steddy" – all originals that get Edwards past the usual bag of soulful standards! LP, Vinyl record album
(OJC pressing. Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ Brian AugerBrian Auger (180 gram pressing) ... LP
BYG/Replay (UK), 1965. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The earliest work ever recorded by the mighty Brian Auger – a key link between the British jazz, rock, and soul scenes of the 60s – and singer and organist with a sound that won him huge fans in a wide variety of audiences! Brian borrowed heavily from the styles of US soul artists like Ray Charles, Booker T, and Jimmy McGriff – working the Hammond organ with incredible skill for a UK player – in ways that were very different than the style of the guitar heroes of the period, who were more focused on straighter sounds from blues. Auger can sing with a soulful charm, but also focuses maybe even more of his energy on the organ – serving up great solos here with just guitar, bass, and drums behind his lead. Titles include "Tiger", "Holy Smoke", "Come Back To Croydon", "Own Up Lady Astor", "Foolkiller", "Kiko", "Let's Do It Tonight", "The In Crowd", and "Back At The Chicken Shack". LP, Vinyl record album
