SlaveHardness Of The World ... LP
Cotillion, 1977. Very Good+ ... $6.99
One of the first few albums from Slave – and a wickedly tight batch of funk that helped set a new level for countless other groups to come! Slave have an impeccable groove here that's free from some of the over-indulgent jamming and too-bassy funk that wrecked so many other groups at the time – and instead, they've got a finely-honed sound that's all compressed around the rhythms, yet which also opens up spaciously with other soulful elements. The mellow cuts are as great as the harder numbers – and the set includes the great instrumental "Baby Sinister", plus "The Party Song", "Life Can Be Happy", "The World's On Hard", "We Can Make Love", and "Volcano Rupture". LP, Vinyl record album

SlaveShow Time (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Cotillion/Iconoclassic, 1981. New Copy ... $12.99 15.99
Wonderful work from Slave – an album that's still got the hard funk of earlier years, yet which also has the group sweetening up their sound in a great sort of 80s groove way! Most tracks kick along with that great rolling bass sound that the group practically invented – and which has been their everlasting legacy to mainstream funk – and Steve Arrington's still in the group on lead vocals, really hitting some soaring notes that help the tunes groove even more – all of which maybe makes the record one of the most perfect distillations of everything that made Arrington and Slave such a standard-setting group for the 80s! Titles include "Party Lites", "Snap Shot", "Smokin", "Wait For Me", "Funken Town", and "Steal Your Heart". CD features bonus tracks – "Snap Shot (12" version)" and "Wait For Me (7" version)". CD

SlaveSlave ... LP
Cotillion, 1977. Very Good- ... $7.99
Far and away the band's best record! The album's got a fresh funk sound that takes an earlier 70s ensemble style and slicks it down a bit – but thanks to some great drum work by Tim Dozier (Steve Arrington had yet to join the band), and a subtle riffing bass style by Mark Adams, the band had a groove that was quite revolutionary, and which set them apart from the legions of funk imitators that were springing up at the end of the 70s. The high points of the album is the band's seminal "Slide", which is followed up with "Son Of Slide" – and both tracks have these amazing dark repetitive grooves that have really stood the test of time (thanks in part to a famous sample by Tribe Called Quest!) Other tracks include "You & Me", "Party Hardy", "Screw Your Wig On Tite", and "Separated". LP, Vinyl record album

SlaveStellar Fungk – The Best Of Slave Featuring Steve Arrington (red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Rhino, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP ... $31.99 33.98
Fantastic funk from Slave – one of the tightest, sharpest groups to emerge in the large ensemble scene of the late 70s – presented here in a package that includes some of their best tracks, and some later projects by the drum's singer/drummer Steve Arrington too! The genius of the group is a bit hard to put in words, but it's definitely there from the very first groove – an impeccable marriage of basslines and drums, honed to a really sharp edge – and topped with really wonderful vocals too. Titles include the Slave cuts "Slide", "Stone Jam", "Just A Touch Of Love", "Watching You", "Steal Your Heart", "Snap Shot", "Stellar Fungk", "The Party Song", "Are You Ready For Love", and "Wait For Me" – plus Steve Arrington cuts "Nobody Can Be You", "Weak At The Knees", "Dancin In The Key Of Life", "Feel So Real", and "Way Out".

SlaveStone Jam ... LP
Cotillion, 1980. Very Good- ... $6.99
We couldn't think of a better way to describe the sound of Slave than "stone jam"! The band's got a bass-heavy groove, mixed with a lot of soul, in a style that was often copied by many groups in the 80s, but never equalled. The real strength in the band was their songwriting – always fresh, and never too overindulgent in the funky elements. The vocals are tight and soulful, and the restriction of the funky bits makes for some nicely compressed grooves. Steve Arrington's on lead vocals – and tracks include "Watching You", "Never Get Away", "Stone Jam", "Feel My Love", and "Let's Spend Some Time". LP, Vinyl record album

Robinsongs (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first-ever group-spanning collection of work from the family of Slave – the late 70s funk powerhouse that was also linked to the group's Aurra and Steve Arrington's Hall Of Fame! The package is heavy on work from Slave – that bass-heavy group who really revolutionized the sound of funk in the late 70s – creating a lean groove that was tight and right on the money, and providing a perfect platform for so many new artists to leap off into the 80s! The group also boasted members Steve Washington and Steve Arrington – the former of whom would launch Aurra, a great funk group famous for their Salsoul Records material – the latter of whom was lead singer Steve Arrington, who'd enjoy a great run under his own name in the 80s! This package brings together a massive amount of greatness from everyone involved – Aurra tracks that include "Are You Single", "Checking You Out", "Make Up Your Mind", "Such A Feeling", and "In The Mood To Groove"; Steve Arrington cuts "You Meet My Approval", "Weak At The Knees", "Feel So Real", and "Dancin In The Key Of Life"; and Slave cuts that include "Slide", "Screw Your Wig On Tite", "Are You Ready For Love", "Stellar Fungk", "Feel My Love", "Shine", "Funky Lady", "Snap Shot", "Party Lites", "Life Can Be Happy", "Great American Funk Song", "Stone Jam", "Sizzlin Hot", "Watching You", "Son Of Slide", "Party Hardy", and "Drac Is Back". 44 cuts in all!

David Boykin & SebauLast Slave Movie/Which Side Are You On ... CD
Sonic Healing Ministries, 2018. New Copy ... $6.99
Maybe one of the most political projects we've ever heard from saxophonist David Boykin, and one of the most ambitious too – a jazz opera that deals with the recent struggles of black America in the face of increased police brutality – inspired by the tragic deaths of Eric Garner, Michael Brown, and others! The piece features vocals – both sung and rhymed, performed by a group that was put together especially for this event – with vocals from Rhonda Gray and Quenna Lene, plus Boykin himself – and rhymes from Manu Wisdom. Bokyin plays fantastic tenor throughout, alongside drums from Josh Ross and bass from Rollo Radford – and the mix of voice with this stripped-down lineup is incredibly powerful, with the best energy of an underground project like this from the 70s. The group also features a bit of turntable work from Abstract Black and some piano from Aliyyah Heatherington – and the whole thing was recorded live in concert, in late 2017. CD

Idris Ackamoor & The PyramidsShaman ... LP
Strut (UK), 2020. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $27.99 29.99
A tremendous return to form for reedman Idris Ackamoor and his Pyramids group – and a record that we love every bit as much as his classic material from the 70s! There's a power, righteousness, and urgency to this album that we haven't heard from Ackamoor in years – very much the kind of material that's both a message and a medicine for the planet – of the sort that first inspired Ackamoor's generation in the 70s – and which is rarely carried off in a contemporary context this well! Idris plays tenor, but also delivers some surprisingly wonderful vocals and a few very powerful spoken parts too – and the rest of the lineup features Margaux Simmons on flute, Bobby Cobb on guitar, Ruben Ramos Medina on bass, Jack Yglesies on percussion, Sandra Poindexter on viola and violin, and Giole Pagliaccia on drums. The vibe here is like the vintage Black Fire Records label at its best – and titles include "Salvation", "Theme For Cecil", "When Will I See You Again", "Shaman", "Tango Of Love", "Dogon Mysteries", and "The Last Slave Ship".

Atlantic, 1985. Sealed ... $4.99
A third great chapter in the career of the mighty Steve Arrington – a solo debut, after work in the groups Slave and Hall Of Fame – and a set that has Arrington maybe shining even more than ever in the spotlight! Rhythms are a bit more mid 80s than his previous work – but Steve's way of handling beats, basslines, and keyboards is every bit as funky as before – and his enthusiasm on the vocals brings a sort of warmth to the record that really knock away so much of the thinner soul on the charts! Arrington keeps things nice and lean – in a good way, which lets you know he's in charge – and titles include the anthemic title track "Dancin In The Key Of Life" – plus "Gasoline", "Stand With Me", "Turn Up The Love", "Brown Baby Boy", "Feel So Real", and "She Just Don't Know".

Black MoonEnta Da Stage (2LP pic disc pressing) ... LP
Wreck/P-Vine (Japan), 1993. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $51.99 59.99
The legendary debut of Black Moon – one of those records that was slept on by the mainstream at the time, but which has gone on to be an undeniable part of hip hop history as the years moved on! The group are part of that great second wave of young east coast talent who really set this edge, and managed to rival some of the attitude of the west, but without falling into cliches and overplayed gimmicks. Part of the record's strength is its excellent Beatminerz production – very standard-setting work – and the set also features guest appearances from scenemates Smif N Wessun and Havoc – on cuts that include the singles "Who Got Da Props" and "I Got Cha Opin" – plus "Powaful Impak", "Ack Like U Want It", "Sh** Iz Real", "Slave", "Make Munne", "How Many MCs", "U Da Man", "Enta Da Stage", "Buck Em Down", and "Make Munne".

Roy BrooksEthnic Expressions – Live At Small's Paradise NYC ... LP
Im-Hotep/P-Vine (Japan), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $39.99 49.99
Amazing sounds from drummer Roy Brooks – very spiritual work that's quite a change from his straighter soul jazz of the 60s! The album's right up there with Roy's better-known (though still rare) live performance at Town Hall – or his classic Free Slave session – and like those records, this one explodes with a raw power that's really amazing – heavy drums from Brooks, driving a collective of righteous musicians that really stretch out in the free space of the recording! The clineup shifts a bit from track to track, but there's a cohesive spirit to the record that comes from Brooks' bold spirit – a joyous, soulful, post-Coltrane sort of energy – let loose in the lead, to guide the talents of players who include John Stubblefield on tenor, Sonny Fortune on alto, Olu Dara and Cecil Bridgewater on trumpets, Hamiet Bluiett on baritone sax, Joe Bonner on piano, and Reggie Workman on bass. Eddie Jefferson makes an appearance on two tracks – singing much hipper than on any of his better-known recordings of the period – and titles include "The Last Prophet", "M'Jumbe", "Eboness", "The Smart Set", and "Eboness (Kwanza)".

Descendants Of Mike & PhoebeSpirit Speaks (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Strata East/P-Vine (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $24.99 29.99
One of the most unique albums on the Strata East label – and that's saying a heck of a lot, given the creative energies flowing through that legendary jazz outlet! Descendants Of Mike & Phoebe is a righteous little project put together by Spike Lee's father, Bill Lee, and his brothers and sisters (Cliff Lee, Grace Lee Mims, and Consuela Lee Moorhead) – working here in a group named after their slave ancestors, who are paid tribute in a beautifully flowing batch of tunes! Lee's round, warm bass tones are firmly at the head of the group on most numbers – recorded at a similar level to his excellent work with Clifford Jordan on Strata East during the same time – and other instrumentation includes piano from Consuela, flugelhorn from Cliff, and percussion from Sonny Brown and Billy Higgins – all used in a wonderfully evocative style that's even better than some of Lee's later soundtrack work. A few numbers feature vocals from Grace – singing wordlessly and with a really heavenly sort of quality – and together, the whole group have a undeniable sense of power and majesty, yet also one that's touched by a really personal sense of poetry too. Titles include a great version of Lee's "Coltrane", which was more famously recorded with Clifford Jordan – plus "Chick Chick", "Attica", "Too Little, Too Late", "Boll Weevil", "Don't Be A Stranger", and "Well Done, Weldon".

DoNormaalThird Daughter ... LP
Crane City, 2018. Sealed ... $11.99
Seriously distinctive, certain to stand the test of time underground hip hop from Seattle's DoNormaal! There's something almost fiercely contemporary in the sounds, rhymes and style on Third Daughter – not that it hews to current trends, just that it doesn't lean on past sounds and styles in anyway. The producers build the sound for her voice and vision really well, pairing her sometimes confessional, sometimes cryptic, sometimes disarmingly childlike lyricism and varied flow to varied beats, bass and bits of melody to suit. It's also nice showcase for a diverse crew of producers including Brakebill, TMLO, Jack City, Fish Narc, Joe Valley, Joel, Mario Casalini, Wolftone and Bobby Davis – and tracks include "Fraught", "Ego Slave", "Emotional", "Okie Doke", "Gold Rooster", "Lyf So", "Heat Lullaby", "My Teacher" feat Raven Hollywood, "Buckle", "Magic DoNormaal", "Revenge", "Take A Walk", "Don't Make Me Wait" Wolftone, "Ur Side", "Grieves" and more.

Deep soulful roots cuts, all produced by Derrick Harriott, one of the finest producers of Jamaican music, with a feel that is at times reminiscent of some of the best soul cuts coming out of Motown or Curtis Mayfield's productions. Most of the tracks here are DJ cuts, with some of the best, like Big Youth & U Roy chatting over the bubbling rhythms, and a couple of nice harmony tracks featuring the Ethiopians, plus some instrumentals with Augustus Pablo blowing some nice melodica lines. Derrick even takes a vocal turn himself on the massive 12" version of "Slave". Also included are Dennis Brown's "Concentration", an version of "Dock of the Bay" by Big Youth & the Ethiopians "Good Ambition". 16 tracks in all. CD

Jazzy wonderfulness from Chris Harwood – not a jazz singer herself, but one who gets some superb backings from a range of British musicians – all of whom take her folk-tinged vocals into territory that makes for a wonderfully unique record! The approach is one of those rare studio moments when things come together in a really magical way – with a quality that's laidback and easygoing, as if everyone is just sliding into a groove – but with results that are nicely focused, and a sound that's beautifully cohesive throughout the entire set! The record features work by prog heavyweights like Ian McDonald on saxes and Dave Lambert on guitar – but isn't a prog set at all, as you'll hear on tracks that include "Hear What I Have To Say", "Never Knew What Love Was", "Wooden Ships", "Before You Right Now", "Crying To Be Heard", "Question Of Time", "When I Got Home", "Romance", "Ain't Gonna Be Your Slave", "Flies Like A Bird", and "Mama".

Bob MarleyBob Marley – The Capitol Session 1973 (green marble vinyl pressing) ... LP
Mercury, 1973. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $45.99 49.99
An incredible lost slice of music from the young Bob Marley – an unissued set of recordings done at the Capitol Studios in LA, at a time when the Wailers were just beginning to rise in global power! The session came at an unusual moment for the group – they had come to the US to tour with Sly & The Family Stone, and were fired because the audiences were not yet ready for their groove – leaving the group a bit astray in California. But an opportunity arose to record at Capitol, a performance that was also filmed – and the result is this amazing set of tracks that captures Bob and the group at a level that's even different than their massive Island Records sets to come. There's a current of funk running through a number of these tracks, and a lean groove that's wonderfully soul-drenched throughout – not just in Marley's vocals, but in the overall performance of the rest – a tight sextet that includes Peter Tosh, Joe Higgs, Aston Barrett, Carlton Barrett, and Earl Lindo. Titles include "Rastaman Chant", "Midnight Ravers", "Put It On", "Stop That Train", "Get Up Stand Up", "You Can't Blame The Youth", "Slave Driver", "Duppy Conqueror", and "Burnin & Lootin".

Chris Blackwell's partially at the helm on production, but the album was mostly recorded in classic Kingston studios – Randy's, Dynamic, and Harry J's – and retains the same vibe as some of Marley's earlier work, but with more of the forward-thinking vision he brought to his time at Island. Bunny Livingston lays down some excellent percussion on the set – and rhythm is from the team of Aston and Carlton Barrett on bass and drums. Titles include the classic "Stir It Up" – plus "Slave Driver", "Kinky Reggae", "High Tide Or Low Tide", and "Concrete Jungle". This expanded deluxe edition also has a full CD of the more raw Jamaican versions, which on almost all songs are the superior takes to our ears! CD
(Includes slipcover, which is in nice shape, but a little wavy on the back. Small sticker over barcode.)

Bob Marley & The WailersRebel Music (with bonus track) ... CD
Island/Universal, 1970s. Used ... $3.99
One of many posthumous compilations of Marley's work with the Wailers, and not a bad one at that. Without setting out to be a greatest hits, this compilation focuses on some of Marley's more topical, political songs, including the classics "Get Up, Stand Up (live)" and "Them Belly Full", plus "Ride Natty Ride" and "So Much Trouble In the World". 10 tracks in all, this set also features "Rebel Music (3 O'Clock Road Block)", "Rat Race", 'War/No More Trouble (live)", "Roots", "Slave Driver" and "Crazy Baldhead". This pressing adds an 11th bonus track, "Wake Up & Live (parts 1 & 2)". CD

MasqueradersLove Anonymous ... LP
ABC, 1977. Very Good+ ... $3.99
One of the few full albums ever cut by The Masqueraders – a stellar vocal group who recorded some excellent singles in the 60s, and were fortunate enough to be pulled into the big time by Isaac Hayes for his Hot Buttered Soul imprint on ABC! The band mixes their smooth Memphis style with some tighter arrangements by Ike and Lester Snell – and the result is a nice batch of modern soul tracks that keeps up the groove of the Hot Buttered sound nicely! Tracks include "Be For Real", "Runaway Slave", "It's A Terrible Thing To Waste Your Love", and "Love Between A Woman And A Man". LP, Vinyl record album

MC LyteEyes On This ... CD
First Priority, 1989. Used ... $4.99 6.99
MC Lyte's second full length record – a bit overlooked in the grand scheme, if only because the preceding Lyte As A Rock was a tough act to follow – so now's a great time to catch up with it! To our ears, Eyes On This is every bit as nice as the debut, and it that last of Lyte's no nonsense late 80s east coast rap efforts – before she started inching more towards a commercial style in the early 90s. An underappreciated classic! Includes "Cappucino", "Stop, Look, Listen" featuring Audio Two, "Survival of the Fittest (rmx)", "I Am the Lyte", "Cha Cha Cha", "Not Wit' A Dealer" and another song dedicated to Shante, "Shut The Eff Up! (Hoe)". Also includes "Throwin Words At U", "Please Understand", "Rhyme Hangover", "Funky Song" and "Slave 2 The Rhythm". CD

Nat Turner RebellionLaugh To Keep From Crying ... CD
Philly Groove/Chrysalis, 1969. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
The never-issued full length album from Philly funk combo Nat Turner Rebellion – a group led by Joseph Jefferson, who'd later write great songs for others – but who here is standing strong at the head of a very righteous group! Nat Turner Rebellion issued a few singles on the Philly Groove label, but never got the chance to give the world it's full length message – and this set was rescued from lost tapes at the Sigma Sound Studios by some students at Drexel University – a great lost legacy in sound, with a funky power and positive message that's maybe more important now than ever before! These guys often have the sock-soul punch of Sir Joe Quarterman & Free Soul – and titles include "Tribute To A Slave", "Love Peace & Understanding, "Fruit Of The Land", "Plastic People", "Getting Higher Together", and "Laugh To Keep From Crying".

It's been 8 years since Sade's last album, but rest assured, she's still pretty much the same! Her vocals are as lovely as ever – with that indescribable floating quality that always sends us, no matter how many times we've heard her songs on the radio. The production is slightly different than before – with a spare, stripped-down, slightly dubby style that's hinted at by the Lover's Rock title. Nice and mellow – but that's the way we like her! Titles include "Flow", "King Of Sorrow", "By Your Side", "The Sweetest Gift", "Every Word", "All About Our Love", and "Slave Song". CD

SkyySkyyline ... LP
Salsoul, 1981. Near Mint- ... $5.99
A stone classic from Skyy – one of those groups who virtually helped invent 80s groove! Like the best of the genre – such as Slave, BB&Q Band, and others – Skyy have a soulful approach that goes way past the simple cliches that other groups were so content to only muddle around it. The sound here goes very deep – based around the bass-heavy funk sound of the time, but setting up the instrumentation with lots of jazzy touches, and coming up with a strong ensemble approach that offers up plenty of freshness, even while the boogie groove goes on and on! Titles include "Call Me", "Get Into The Beat", "Jam The Box", "When You Touch Me", and "Gonna Get It On". LP, Vinyl record album

Tommie Young's probably best known to Dusty Groovers for her debut indie album Do You Feel The Same Way – but this is the record that probably brought her to the masses more than that one. The record's kind of an odd one – scored for a post-Roots slave film that starred Cicely Tyson, and featuring disco-infused backings by Van McCoy with vocals by Tommie. The overall feel was probably a bit weird in the film, although it comes across ok on record – even though the whole thing's light years away from Tommie's earlier album. Titles include "I Must Go", "Born Into Slavery", "A Woman Called Moses", and "Coleman's Theme". LP, Vinyl record album

Sinecure/Now Again, 1960s/1970s/1980s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $7.99 17.98
An incredible companion to the book Enjoy The Experience – and like that volume, a set that's filled with gems from the obscure sides of the American recording industry – vanity and privately pressed records that are plenty darn groovy, and pretty darn funky in all the right spots! The book is a painstakingly researched collection – and this soundtrack is just as carefully put together – with a great range of styles – heavily steeped in freaky funk, upbeat boogie, acid folk, offbeat psych, and trippy jazz! The range of sounds is really wonderful – with a feel that's somewhere between a Trunk Records or Finders Keepers compilation – and titles include "Intro (Excerpt)" by The Muzzy Band, "Spacing Out" by The Invaders, Diska Limba Man" by Medico Doktor Vibes, "Music Slave" by Jade, "White Panther" by Arcesia, "Never Come Back" by Boa, "ESP Switch" by Michael Farneti, "6.4 = Makeout" by Gary Wilson, "Just To Say Goodbye" by Russ Saul, "Cadillac Woman" by Stephen David Heitkotter, "Piledriver" by Dennis The Fox, "Old Time Feeling" by Circuit Rider, and "666" by Ray Torske.

Joe Gibbs/Doctor Bird (UK), 1976. New Copy ... $13.99 20.99
Mid 70s magic from the Mighty Two – the team of Joe Gibbs and Errol Thompson, who together here craft a set of tracks that are very much at the top of the roots reggae generation! The work is a nice shift from the more polished styles at the bigger labels – lean energy that comes from the heart of Kingston, where the messages in the music mean a heck of a lot from both a political and cultural standpoint – nicely unified in spirit on the record, even when the singers shift in the lead! The original album features tracks that include "I'm A Natty" by Jacob Miller, "Slave Driver" by Horace Andy, "I Was In Love" by Beverley Bailey, "Ain't Too Proud To Beg" by Lloyd Parks, "Burn Babylon" by Silford Walker, "No Man's Land" by Cornel Campbell, "It Won't Be Long" by Lone Ranger, and "We're Gonna Fight" by Scotty. CD edition adds in 14 more bonus tracks, 12 of which appear on CD for the first time – music all handled by the Mighty Two, by artists who include John Tom, I Roy, Gregory Isaacs, The Fantels, Jackie Brown, Leo Graham, Shorty The President, and Enos McLeod.

✨✧ Roy BrooksEthnic Expressions – Live At Small's Paradise NYC (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Im-Hotep/P-Vine (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Amazing sounds from drummer Roy Brooks – very spiritual work that's quite a change from his straighter soul jazz of the 60s! The album's right up there with Roy's better-known (though still rare) live performance at Town Hall – or his classic Free Slave session – and like those records, this one explodes with a raw power that's really amazing – heavy drums from Brooks, driving a collective of righteous musicians that really stretch out in the free space of the recording! The lineup shifts a bit from track to track, but there's a cohesive spirit to the record that comes from Brooks' bold spirit – a joyous, soulful, post-Coltrane sort of energy – let loose in the lead, to guide the talents of players who include John Stubblefield on tenor, Sonny Fortune on alto, Olu Dara and Cecil Bridgewater on trumpets, Hamiet Bluiett on baritone sax, Joe Bonner on piano, and Reggie Workman on bass. Eddie Jefferson makes an appearance on two tracks – singing much hipper than on any of his better-known recordings of the period – and titles include "The Last Prophet", "M'Jumbe", "Eboness", "The Smart Set", and "Eboness (Kwanza)".

Reel To Reel, 1970. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An amazing unissued live set from drummer Roy Brooks – done at that moment when he was hitting the 70s with some very righteous energy, of the sort that only saw brief exposure on albums like The Free Slave, or some of Roy's own self-released titles! This album is a much-needed addition to that tiny catalog of spiritual avant gems – and it may well be the best of the bunch, as the live setting allows for long tracks that pack a hell of a punch all the way through – not just from Roy's work on drums, but also from this amazing quintet that includes Woody Shaw on trumpet, Carlos Garnett on tenor, Harold Mabern on piano, and Cecil McBee on bass! All players are at the height of their powers – often playing with even more edge than you might expect – and the album's as much a tribute to the genius of Shaw, Garnett, and Mabern as it is to the visionary leadership of Brooks. Titles include "Understanding", "Zoltan", "Taurus Woman", "The Theme", "Billie's Bounce", and "Prelude To Understanding" – all very long. CD

Camilla's got a soulful warmth on her horn that reminds us of Gary Bartz at some of his best moments – yet the presentation here is very much her own, and inflected with contributions from a wonderfully rich lineup that includes Daniel Casimir on bass, Sarah Tandy on piano, Rosie Turton on trombone, Sheila Maurice Grey on trumpet, Daru Jones on percussion, Shirley Tetteh on guitar, and Renato Paris on piano and Fender Rhodes – the latter of whom also provides a bit of vocals – as does Sanity, who makes a guest appearance on three tracks with Jones.

The group are part of that great second wave of young east coast talent who really set this edge, and managed to rival some of the attitude of the west, but without falling into cliches and overplayed gimmicks. Part of the record's strength is its excellent Beatminerz production – very standard-setting work – and the set also features guest appearances from scenemates Smif N Wessun and Havoc – on cuts that include the singles "Who Got Da Props" and "I Got Cha Opin" – plus "Powaful Impak", "Ack Like U Want It", "Sh** Iz Real", "Slave", "Make Munne", "How Many MCs", "U Da Man", "Enta Da Stage", "Buck Em Down", and "Make Munne".

Strut (UK), 1990/1995/2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A return to greatness for the legendary Tribe Records scene in Detroit – an underground movement that gave us some spiritual jazz classics in the 70s – then kept on making wonderful music at an even more underground level as the years went on! This set is a collection of work from three rare recordings issued during that time – all on CD only, and representing a maybe even more obscure side of this legacy than the Tribe albums of the 70s! First up is trombonist Phil Ranelin – heading up a group that includes Wendell Harrison on tenor and Marcus Belgrave on trumpet – two key Tribe partners from the early years – really stretching out on the titles "He The One We All Knew" and "Freddie's Groove", both recorded in 1990. Next is material from a 1995 performance led by pianist Harold McKinney – a set that's got an incredible depth of imagination and soul, almost as much as Harold McKinney's work of years back! The group is a wonderfully hip one – with former Tribe artists Wendell Harrison on tenor and clarinet and Marcus Belgrave on trumpet – plus additional players who include Kiane Zawadi on trombone, Reggie Workman on bass, Francisco Mora on percussion, and Jimmy Owens on trumpet. There's a bit of vocals, but never that much – and most tracks are long and open – freely exploratory, but never too far out or avant-styled – just soulful and spiritual, in the true Tribe Records tradition! Titles include "Wide & Blue", "The Slave Ship Enterprise", "Juba", "Libra Ahora", and "Conjure Man". Last is a set of tracks recorded in 2014 by keyboardist Pamela Wise – a record that really carries forward the Tribe Records spirit from the 70s! The overall approach is a bit more contemporary, but the set's still got all the best feel of a classic indie album from the underground – played and penned by Wise in close collaboration with reedman Wendell Harrison, a frequent partner of Pamela's on a variety of projects, and one of the driving forces of Tribe back in the day! Wise plays both acoustic and electric keyboards, and sometimes sings just slightly – although most of the album is instrumental – and in addition to Harrison's work on tenor and bass clarinet, the album features trumpet, guitar, and lots of percussion. Titles include "Ode To Black Mothers", "Hometown", and "Marcus Garvey". CD

Skye/Muzak (Japan), 1969. Used Gatefold ... $24.99 28.99
An unusual little soundtrack to this obscure pre-Roots film about slavery – handled with some very nice touches from Gary McFarland, Bobby Scott, and Grady Tate! The music is penned by Scott, and is mostly in that hip blend of jazz and soul roots that he was using on some of his own 60s vocal work – but expanded a bit more here with the groovier styles of Skye Records, thanks to arrangements and conducting from Gary McFarland! The work's not as funky as you might expect, but is still plenty darn great – and there's a few instrumental numbers that are especially great here. Grady Tate sings on the vocal ones, often in the deep-voiced style of his own Skye albums – but with an approach that's a bit more down home and soul-based, which is a nice change – almost like Oscar Brown Jr at the best moments. A number of tracks are done in both instrumental and vocal versions – and titles include "Nightwind", "Slaves", "Black Lullabye", "Another Mornin", and "Pickin Cotton". CD

Glen Brown's often the producer here – helming the decks on a host of classic cuts from the early 70s – but he also emerges as the main character too, at times when he steps to the mic and adds in a bit of encouragement to the proceedings! Brown's not really working in deejay mode – he's more in the background on most cuts, but then gets to shine as the lead artist on some of the later tracks in the package – especially the numbers that feature Glen on melodica, blowing the sweet keyboard with a spacious style that's a bit like Augustus Pablo! Titles include "Get Up" by Ron Wilson, "Scatter Light Rock" by Ron Wilson & Lennox Brown, "Dirty Harry" by Tommy McCook & Richard Hall, "Determination Skank" by Tommy McCook & Glen Brown, "Mr Ball Head Aitken" by Bobby Aitken, and the Glen Brown cuts "No More Slavery", "Crisp As A Ball", "Pantomine Rock", "The Winner", "Mitchville Rock", and "School Call".

Culture were an early group in the roots movement in the 70s, and they continued with a very righteous vibe after moving over to Sonia Pottinger's High Note label – maybe getting a bit more professional touch in the studio, but never in a way that dimmed their message at all – and which still set the indie recordings of the group nicely apart from the growing global mainstream market for reggae. This huge set not only features all the vocal singles cut by the group, but also the dubs and versions – with 20 tracks appearing on CD for the first time ever, and 5 more that are previously unreleased. Titles include "Cultural Rock", "Work On Natty", "Stop The Fighting", "Rockers Dub", "Trod On", "This Train", "Mind Who You Beg For Help", "Natty Never Get Weary", "Freedom Rock", "Children Of Zion", "Free Again", "Wipe Your Weeping Eyes", "Children Of Israel", and "Too Long In Slavery".

Mikey DreadWorld War III (180 gram yellow vinyl pressing) ... LP
Dread At The Controls/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $27.99 29.99
A legendary bit of apocalyptic reggae from the great Mikey Dread – a set issued on his own label, and at a time when he was very much at the top of his game as both a lead artist and producer! There's a leaner style here than Jamaican work of a few years before – a quality that maybe points the way towards the digital age to come, but which still has all the warmth of homegrown productions from the Kingston scene – where Dread recorded the album at both Channel One and Aquarius! The basslines are wonderful – courtesy of Errol Holt – and Lincoln Scott serves up some great splashy drums that work well with the rhythms and production – on titles that include "Money Dread", "Mental Slavery", "Losers Weepers Finders Keepers", "World War III", "Jah Jah Love", and "Break Down The Walls".

Four SoundsJazz From District Six ... LP
Trutone/Mad About Records (Portugal), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $34.99 39.99
A South African jazz set from the end of the 60s, but one with a different vibe than some of the rest – as the group have a lean style that still also seems to mix a fair bit of Township elements in with the jazz – which makes for tracks that have a wonderfully playful mix of modes, and a great sense of energy throughout! The group features Clifford Moses on lead guitar and a bit of vocals – the latter of which have a lightly raspy charm that's really unique – as he steps out next to core work from Richard Schilder on piano, Basil Moses on bass, and Billy Bowers on drums. The set also features some excellent guest work from the legendary Basil Coetzee on flute and alto – on titles that include "Seven Steps Lament", "Katrina", "Interim", "Up From Slavery", "Wells Square", and "Don't Close Your Eyes".

Lightnin HopkinsHis Blues ... CD
Ace (UK), 1940s/1950s/1960s. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99 22.99
A hugely sprawling 2CD collection of spanning the career of the incredible Lightnin Hopkins – from his most beloved years from the late 40s to late 50s – and a quite wonderful collection of numbers from the 60s after he had captured the hearts of the young, idealistic folk crowd of the era! Disc one focuses on the years 1947 to 1959 – wonderful, wonderful solo blues recordings that are justifiably revered to say the least. Titles include "Lightin's Boogie", "Coffee Blues", "Moanin Blues", "Highway Blues", "The Foot Race Is On", "Hopkin's Sky Hop", "Short-Haired Woman", the previously unissued "Ain't No Monkey Man" and many more. 26 tracks on disc one. Disc two covers the 60s, when Lightin was recording for Fire, Bluesville, Jewel and other labels. Nice picks from the later years, including some live numbers. Includes "Mojo Hand", "Ida Mae", "I Got Tired", "Sinner's Prayer", "Slavery Time", "Tom Moore Blues", "Up On Telegraph Avenue" and many more. CD

Bishop Manning & The Manning FamilyConverted Mind – The Early Recordings ... CD
Fat Possum/Big Legal Mess, 1970s. New Copy ... $11.99 13.99
Amazing stuff from the Converted Mind of Bishop Manning and his family! Manning was a former down & dirty blues singer who was changed forever byThe Good Word in the early 60s – and the lived in realness of these recordings certainly suggests a blues pedigree. It's completely wonderful, with Manning and Family singers backed perfectly with organ, guitar and drums. 28 tracks in all: "Manning Family Theme Song", "Back In St Matthews Days", "I Am A Pilgrim", "Don't Let Satan Ride", "The Jealous Man And The Jealous Woman", "The Last Step", "Back In Slavery Days", "I Want To Shout At The Meeting", "Going Off Theme", "Sit Down Servent" and many more.

Louis Moholo's Viva La BlackFreedom Tour – Live In South Africa 1993 ... CD
Ogun (UK), 1993. New Copy ... $14.99
An incredibly spiritual session from percussionist Louis Moholo and his ensemble Viva La Black – recorded on the occasion of a series of concerts in Moholo's homeland of South Africa – and done in a way that's as much a document of the group's trip as it is a recording of the music in the concerts. Many of the tracks are shorter passages that flow together with longer ones – piecing together the warm spirit and soulful expression allowed to the group during the tour. And the music itself shares in a heritage that runs back through the 60s work of Mingus and Roland Kirk, the 70s experiments of the AACM, and the rich jazz-in-exile work of Moholo himself! Instrumentation includes percussion, trumpet, saxes, piano, and bass – plus vocals from all the members of the group – and titles include "Use Less Sugar & Stir Like Hell", "Volunteered Slavery", "Woza", "Nikosi", "End Of Man", "Dudu P", "I'll Look All Over Afrika For You", "Drum Choir", and "Joyful Noise".

✨✧ Riz OrtolaniFarewell Uncle Tom (Addio Zio Tom) ... LP
RCA/Dagored (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $8.99
A groovy little soundtrack from Riz Ortolani – a set of tracks written for a controversial faux-documentary on slavery, done with better musical touches that are more in keeping with the early 70s release of the film! The movie came from the same producers as Mondo Cane – also scored by Ortolani – and the style here has the same mix of very scene-specific instrumentals that shift very much throughout the cores of the set. Some tunes are more serious, while others get a bit groovy – and one track features some electric harpsichord in a chunky, catchy little melody – and the album ends with a cool chase type theme that has vibes going fast over heavy beats and trumpet blasts! The set kicks off with the vocal number "Oh My Love", sung by Katyna Ranieri – and other titles include "Maple", "Mister Ling", "Miami", "Cadet's Waltz", "Mamie", and "Rito Di Mezzanotte".

Giuliano SorginiZoo Folle (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1974. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $32.99 39.99
An incredible lost jazz funk soundtrack by Guiliano Sorgini – one of the best we've been lucky enough to discover in ages – all the more fascinating given the film it was made for! The soundtrack is a wild one for the most part, with a few more elegiac sounding numbers – but weighted heavily overall with feverish percussion, Hammond, Moog and other keys and synths – along with funky flute and bass on the wilder numbers, and more elegant classical guitar and strings on the more meditative ones. It's a fascinating mix of styles considering the subject – a mid 70s documentary expose on the poor conditions suffered by animals in zoos and circuses, made by Riccardo Fellini, the brother cinema legend Federico. Amazing stuff, issued properly here for the first time ever! Includes "Mad Town", "Ultima Caccia", "Amboseli", "Space And Freedom", "Zoo Folle", "Chains", "Red, Old Skies" with Edda Dell'Orso, "Slaves" and "Rom-Londr-Parigi". Great 2LP version – with a full bonus album of unreleased music from the same time! LP, Vinyl record album

Steve TurreSpirits Up Above ... CD
High Note, 2004. Used ... $8.99
A beautiful tribute to the genius of Roland Kirk – one that comes across with all the warmth and soulfulness of Kirk's classic recordings! 8 of the 9 tracks on the set are original compositions by Kirk – played by Turre in a style that recalls the brilliantly inventive and creatively playful genius of their original recordings – but which takes the tunes in a slightly different direction, as there's no Roland working triple saxes for the session. Instead, the horns are handled by James Carter on tenor and flute, Vincent Herring on alto and soprano, and Dave Valentin on flute on one track. Turre's trombone is wonderfully understated, but really gets the feel of the material – and the rhythm section's a strong one, with Mulgrew Miller, Buster Williams, and Winard Harper providing the loose soulful approach that graced Kirk's classic Mercury sessions. Titles include "The Spirits Up Above", "Hand Full Of Five", "ED", "Dorthaan's Walk", "Volunteered Slavery", "One For Kirk", and "Three For The Festival". CD

Jazzman (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $19.99 24.99
Greasy Mike's been making the global rounds on records like this – serving up an imagined landscape of weird and wonderful sounds, all pulled from rare singles of late 50s/early 60s vintage! We're not sure Mike's efforts will ever win him a harem, but he's done a great job here – coming up with tunes that often have some slight exotic or Eastern sort of vibe, mixed with more familiar American sounds of the time – like electric guitar or Latin percussion! Titles include "Ole Tsasa" by Valisas & His Slaves, "Desert Wind" by The Vaqueros, "Cairo Twist" by The Royce McAfee Combo, "Cobra" by The Boys, "Sahara" by The Cotillions, "Port Said" by The Kasuals, "Moroc-Kin" by Arabian Knights, "Snake Charmer" by Torrents, "The Bagdad Fantasy" by Ilo Kay & His Trio, and "Istanbul" by Jol Coyes Boys.

Blistering!

Don't get us wrong, we get down with the digital sound too, but these golden era recordings bring an entirely different kind of heaviness to bear on roots tracks. 7 essential numbers: "Marcus Garvey", "Slavery Days", "Black Soul", "Lion", "Old Marcus", "Man In The Hills" and "Throw Down Your Arms".

✨✧ Hermeto Pascoal & Grupo Vice VersaViajando Com O Som – The Lost 76 Vice Versa Studio Sessions (green vinyl pressing) ... LP
Far Out (UK), 1976. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A never-issued album by the great Hermeto Pascoal – recorded in the space between his 70s classics Slaves Mass and A Musica Livre – and every bit as amazing as those classics! The music here is fluid, open, and a fantastic mix of jazz and all of Hermeto's new ideas about musical structure – performed at a level that's highly organic, and with that completely individual vision that Pasocal brought to his sound from the start! This isn't typical Brazilian fusion of the time, but nor is it anything like the tighter sounds that Airto and Flora Purim were recording up in the US – instead, a musical mode that's completely in its own space, and which needs only one listen to convince you of the master's genius. The group here is overflowing with young talent – Lelo Nazario on keyboards, Nivaldo Ornelas and Mauro Senise on saxes and flute, Toninho Horta on guitar, Zeca Assumpcao on bass, and Ze Eduardo Nazario on drums – all important musical visionaries on their own, working together here to hit an even new level of creativity. Aleuda Chaves sings wordlessly on a bit of the record – and the whole thing has that blend of soaring sound and lyricism that marks Pascoal at his best. Titles include "Danca Do Paje", "Natal", "Casinha Pequinina", and "Mavumvavumpefoco". LP, Vinyl record album

Quartet (Spain), 1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A pair of great soundtracks – back to back on a single CD! First up is Zoo Folle – an incredible lost jazz funk soundtrack by Guiliano Sorgini – one of the best we've been lucky enough to discover in ages – all the more fascinating given the film it was made for! The soundtrack is a wild one for the most part, with a few more elegiac sounding numbers – but weighted heavily overall with feverish percussion, Hammond, Moog and other keys and synths – along with funky flute and bass on the wilder numbers, and more elegant classical guitar and strings on the more meditative ones.

Titles include "Mad Town", "Ultima Caccia", "Ambroseli", "Space And Freedom", "Zoo Folle", "Chains", "Red Old Skies", "Slaves", and "Roma Londra Parigi". Gli Animali Che Simpatia is an animal-themed film, scored by Giuliano Sorgini with a set of tracks that are mostly named after different animals in the film – and which seem to have a very different quality as the soundtrack moves from number to number! Sometimes are upbeat and groovy, others more serious and almost melancholy – and titles include "Baboons", "Puppies", "Bears", "Eagles", "Antelopes", "Dolphins", and "Ostrich". CD
