Sheila ESheila E In Romance 1600 ... LP
Paisley Park, 1985. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Sheila E's follow up to "The Glamorous Life", with equally Prince influenced mid 80s production. Unlike some of the other projects that Prince pursued with a Svengali like presence, Sheila E was a great talent on her own, with a sound built around Prince's pop-soul melodies and her own hard driving Latin percussion. 8 tracks in all, including "A Love Bizarre", "Romance 1600", "Dear Michaelangelo" and "Sister Fate". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover is bent at the bottom left corner.)

Sheila ESheila E In The Glamorous Life ... LP
Paisley Park, 1984. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A fantastic meeting of two generations of soulful music – Sheila E, the daughter of Cali Latin soul genius Coke Escovedo, meets up with the snappingly funky world of Prince – and results in one of the strongest records of Sheila's career! The singer/percussionist had already been around for about a decade on record – turning out some great Latin work with her brother Pete in the Bay Area – but this set has Sheila going of the top with a great Paisley Park groove, really working with lots of influences from Prince, but still also getting plenty of Latin elements of her own into the mix – on long tracks that are filled with wonderful rhythms and plenty of great percussion too! Titles include the sublime title cut "The Glamorous Life" – plus "The Belle Of St Mark", "Oliver's House", "Strawberry Shortcake", "Noon Rendezvous", and "Next Time Wipe The Lipstick Off Your Collar". LP, Vinyl record album
(German pressing. Cover has an import sticker.)

Sheila JordanPortrait Of Sheila ... CD
Blue Note, 1962. Used ... $9.99
One of the only two vocal jazz albums that the Blue Note label recorded back in the day – and a haunting batch of tracks from a young Sheila Jordan! The style here is quite different than that of Jordan's later, more experimental records – and this early session shows her as an extremely talented young vocalist, with a unique approach that adds a sparkling modernist touch to familiar tunes – yet which still keeps things in a relatively more straightforward fashion. There's a great mixing of older and newer visions in the set – not just in Jordan's vocals, but also in the small combo backing by the trio of Barry Galbraith on guitar, Steve Swallow on bass, and Denzil Best on drums. Titles include great versions of "Baltimore Oriole", "Dat Dere", and "Hum Drum Blues" – plus the tunes "I'm A Fool To Want You", "Am I Blue", "Laugh Clown Laugh", and "Who Can I Turn To?". CD

✨✧ Sheila ESheila E ... LP
Paisley Park, 1987. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sheila E's producing herself here, but the groove is still very firmly in the Paisley Park mode – chunky, funky soul – often exploding with vamping Prince-esque rhythms, but also coming across with a smoother, jazzier mode at the best moments. The instrumentation here is mostly electric, but Sheila's obviously playing percussion too – and the record's got one heavily Latin number titled "Soul Salsa" – which has almost an August Darnell kind of dancefloor groove! Other tracks include "Love On A Blue Train", "Boys Club", "Hon E Man", "One Day", "Koo Koo", and "Price & The Passion". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sheila JordanComes Love – Lost Session 1960 ... CD
Capri, 1960. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic lost moment from vocalist Sheila Jordan – a set that was done a few years before her debut album in Blue Note, and which represents a rare look at this very early chapter in her career! By the 70s, Jordan had emerged as a true modernist in jazz – but here, she's maybe a bit more straight ahead – more in the moody, dark-tinged world of small combo vocals by singers like Chris Connor or Helen Carr – but already showing signs of that very distinct phrasing that would only flower more strongly over the next few years – a quality that really sets the record apart from more familiar material! The recordings were lost for years – found on an acetate in recent years with a Chatham Records listing next to the date – and titles include "Glad To Be Unhappy", "Ballad Of The Sad Young Men", "I'm The Girl", "Comes Love", "These Foolish Things", "They Can't Take That Away From Me", and "Don't Explain".

George DukeMaster Of The Game (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Epic/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1979. New Copy ... $12.99 16.99
A late 70s classic from jazzy funk master George Duke! Master Of The Game is an excellent mix of jazz, smooth soul, and Latin riffing – really a perfect blend of styles that shows not only how far George's sound had progressed throughout the 70s, it also charts the development of the California scene during the late 70s. George has musical help from Ray Obeido, Roland Bautista, and Sheila E – plus vocals by Lynn Davis, Josie James, and Napoleon Brock. The tracks have a smooth sound that works perfectly with Duke's best keyboard approaches – subduing his tenency to "rock out" a bit, but bringing forward his classic ability to hit a stone mellow groove. Titles include "I Want You For Myself", "Every Little Step I Take", "Look What You Find", "I Love You More", "Dog Man", and "Games". This Soulmusic.com edition includes 2 bonus tracks: "I Want You For Myself (US Single Edit) and "Every Little Step I Take (US Single Edit)". CD

Marc LevinSocial Sketches ... CD
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $16.99
Marc Levin is maybe best known for one famous album of avant jazz recorded for the Savoy label in the 60s – but he's equally stunning here in a mid 70s set that got little circulation at the time, but which is a key part of Levin's under-recorded legacy as a leader! The approach is very open and creative, but balanced with that mixture of structure and freedom that Levin's other album shares – almost 60s "new thing" modes, expressed during the 70s loft generation – on long tracks that feature some really stunning shifts in sounds, styles, and instrumental elements! Levin blows cornet, flugelhorn, flute, mellophone, and melodica – and the group also features Seppo Paakkunanine on baritone, flute, and viola – plus Reino Laine on drums, Teppo Auta Aho on bass, and Carita Holmstrom on voice – a singer who makes some especially strong contributions to the record, in a way that maybe echoes some of the Sheila Jordan/Roswell Rudd collaborations. The tunes are fantastic, every bit as striking as their titles – which include "Nylon Coverin Body Smotherin", "Brothers In War", "Letter To President Nixon Re The Chile Affair", and "Student Days New York 1965". CD
(Part of the "Enja – Real Jazz Classics" series!)

PrinceOriginals (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Warner, Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $33.99 34.98
A fantastic collection of unreleased material from Prince – not spare demos or home recordings, or studio snippets either – but instead some fully-formed songs that come right from the glory days of the singer's career! Almost all the material here is from the early 80s – and most tracks were later recorded by other artists in the Prince spectrum – including The Time, Apollonia 6, Mazarti, The Family, Jill Jones, and Sheila E – but are done here by the man himself, with all of the slinky, funky qualities that he brought to his own music at the time – qualities that are especially well-noted on some of the other cuts that were recorded by The Bangles and Kenny Rogers – which really feel different in the hands of Prince. Titles include "Love Thy Will Be Done", "Nothing Compares 2 U", "Baby You're A Trip", "Manic Monday", "Jungle Love", "Sex Shooter", "Noon Rendezvous", "Make Up", "The Glamorous Life", "Holly Rock", "You're My Love", "100 MPH", "Dear Michaelangelo", "Wouldn't You Love To Love Me", and "Gigolos Get Lonely Too".

✨✧ PrincePop Life (Fresh Dance Mix)/Hello (extended mix) ... 12-inch
Warner, 1985. Very Good+ (pic cover)... $14.99
"Pop Life" is a real gem from Prince – a tune that's completely catchy, but maybe a bit more laidback than some of his previous hits – in a mode that some folks were calling a bit psychedelic at the time, but which really just shows the increasing depth of the man's genius! The "fresh dance" mix here is by Sheila E – who really gives the whole thing a nice crackle – and the flipside features a long take on "Hello", too. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Sleeve and label have BPM in pen.)

VariousAlan Lomax's American Patchwork – Field Recordings 1978 to 1983 ... LP
Mississippi, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99 26.99
The mighty Alan Lomax has maybe done more to document rural American music in the 20th century than anyone else – most famously for a midcentury series of recordings for the Library Of Congress and Folkways Records, which established Lomax as having an incredible ear for lesser-heard sounds in the hinterland of the US! Here, Lomax returns to that role with the important American Patchwork project in the late 70s and early 80s – recordings that were not initially his idea, but which revived his talents in a tremendous way, to document a rich array of blues and rural musicians who were still out there, working far from the spotlight, the radio, and the record labels – even in an era of greater mass communication. The scope of the sounds here is wonderful – every bit as rich and important as earlier Lomax projects – and the package features 24 field recordings, by artists who include Joe Savage, Sheila Kay Adams, Janette & Joe Carter, Boyd & Ruth May Rivers, Clyde Maxwell, Vaughn Eller, Dennis McGee, Holly Springs Sacred Harp Singers, Napoleon Strickland, Moving Star Hall Singers, Ray Hicks, Nimrod Workman, Canray Fontenot, and RL Burnside – the last of whom might well be the only person here who got more exposure in later years. LP, Vinyl record album
(Great heavy vinyl and cover, with a nice booklet of notes too!)

VariousKrush Groove ... LP
Warner, 1985. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Not quite the Wild Style soundtrack, but still an early hip hop cinema classic – thanks to work from some of the bigger acts of the time! The movie's from a second generation of rap filmmaking – more narrative, less documentary – but over the course of years, the whole thing's come to stand as a great document of this moment in music – and in super-fresh style as well! Hip Hop tracks include "She's On It" by Beastie Boys, "I Can't Live Without My Radio" by LL Cool J, "If I Ruled The World" by Kurtis Blow, "All You Can Eat" by Fat Boys, and "Krush Groovin" by the Krush Groove All-Stars – which features Run-DMC, Fat Boys, Kurtis Blow, and Sheila E! Soul titles include "Krush Groove" by Chaka Khan, Love Triangle" by Gap Band, and "Tender Love" by Force MDs – and Debbie Harry shows her street soul chops on "Feel The Spin". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Marcello MelisFree To Dance ... LP
Black Saint (Italy), 1978. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A free-thinking and spiritual session from Italian bassist Marcello Melis – recorded right at the height of his late 70s powers! The album's a richly collaborative effort – one that draws strongly from contributions by players who include Lester Bowie and Enrico Rava on trumpets, George Lewis and Gary Valente on trombones, Don Pullen on piano, and Nana Vasconcelos and Don Moye on percussion. Fred Hopkins adds on some extra bass next to Melis – and the album also features great vocals from both Sheila Jordan and Jeanne Lee. The tracks are all quite long and collaborative – and build sound out of space through the careful use of each player – allowing their voices to rise together in power, then breaking out beautifully with different thematic moments. Titles include "Before The Lights Go On", "Struggle To Be", and "Free To Dance". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has minimal wear.)

✨✧ VariousNaya Beat Vol 1 – South Asian Dance & Electronic Music 1983 to 1992 ... LP
Naya Beat (France), Late 80s/Early 90s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A nice dip into the more modern side of Indian music that emerged in the 80s – modes that would have been served up by larger studio orchestrations in years before, but which morphed a bit with some of the more contemporary club instrumentation and production of the time! Sheila Chandra is the biggest name on this set – one of the few artists here who got any sort of global exposure back in the day – and the set is a much deeper dig into territory that was cut off from most of the rest of us, at least if we didn't happen to shop at some of the import stores around the country – and the set mixes original recordings with a few reworks done for the set, which bring out all the best elements of the classics! Titles include Turbotito & Ragz reworks of the cuts "Masti Bhara Sam Hai" by Mangal, "Thottu Thottu Aadvaa" by Bappi Lahiri & Suresh, "Pi Pi" by Shakti, and "Kaga Bole Mera" by Arundhati Bhaumik – plus the cuts "Jungle Days" by Remo, "Hosh Nahin Hasi Ji Mujhe" by Musarrat, "Dosti" by Nazi Hasaan & Zoheb Hassan, "The Indian Dance" by Pinky Ann Rihal, "Saboko Maloom Hain Main Sharabi Nahin" by Babla & His Orchestra, "Chipko Chipko" by Asha Puthli, and "Ishkaan De Mamle" by Manjeet Kondal.

✨✧ VariousWhen Jah Shall Come ... LP
Pressure Sounds (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
A wealth of rare work from Jamaican studio genius Bunny Striker Lee – unusual cuts and unreleased material – all of it a further testament to his legendary ear for a mindblowing sound! These aren't half-baked cuts, or material that deserved to fall to the cutting room floor – because the style is years ahead of its time, and put together with techniques and styles that are still pretty darn revolutionary after all these many years! Some tracks have a strong vocal presence, others are more instrumental – and in addition to Lee's famous flying cymbals technique, there's lots more going on here too – including some totally cool space age sounds. Unreleased tracks include "Bell Road Rock" by The Aggrovators, "Joe Frazier" by Tommy McCook, "Go Jah Jah Pickney" by Linval Thompson, "No Man Is An Island" by Johnny Clarke & Horace Andy, "Bunny Lee & King Tubby's Dubplate Special" by Cornell Campbell, "Life Of My Own" by The Raver, "Look How Long Nyabinghi Calling You" by Linval Thompson, "King Tubby's Vs Arrows Dubplate" by Cornell Campbell, "Jamaican Fruit Of African Roots" by Lennox Brown & Sheila Richards, "No Babylon Shall Escape In This Time" by Johnny Clarke, and "Every Knee Shall Bow" by Ronnie Davis.
