VariousBuzzsaw Joint Cut 7 – James & Misty ... LP
Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $20.99
Raw soul, heavy R&B, and some rare early rockers – all brought together here with the kind of cool classic intensity we've come to love from the Stag O Lee label! The set's the 7th in their series devoted to the Buzzsaw Joint club in London – and like the rest, it has DJs on the scene pull together some of their favorite gems – which, in this case, makes for a nice batch of 16 rare singles that include "Look At Your Girl" by Googie Rene, "Shout Mama Linda" by The Cymbals, "Don't You Know I Care" by The Sevilles, "Sweeney's Twist" by Billy Martin & His Corvairs, "Q Bop She Bop" by The Dells, "Hop Skip & Jump" by The Opals, "Twistin" by Les Cooper & His Soul Rockers, "Fat Man Twist" by The Royal Dukes, "Pretty Woman" by Curtis Byrd, "Dance On Little Girl" by Dee Clark, and "Twist Off" by an Uncredited Artist.

VariousCoolsville Vol 2 – Ten Inches Of Mean Sleaze & Kookie Far Out Bongo Blasters (10 inch LP) ... LP
Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $11.99
Hipster sounds from the pre-hippie years – tracks that were either recorded by beatniks, or which have a very cool beat-themed style to them – all pulled together from a range of rare recordings at the end of the 50s and the start of the 60s! The sound here is maybe what you'd guess from the very groovy cover – a bit of jazz, and a bit of wit as well – tunes that poke a bit of fun at the intellectual underground, especially as it collides with the more mainstream sound of rock and roll – served up here on a dozen fab platters that sound even better in the company of each other! The album's divided up into a "mean side" and "bongo beatin side" – and titles include "Jet Black" by The Shadows, "Bongo Beating Beatnik" by Joe Hall & The Corvettes, "Goatee" by Joey Warren, "Theme From Von Hutch" by Jerry Madison & The Spacemen, "The Toast" by The Champs, "Money Money" by Benny Joy, "Gargantua" by Piltdown Men, and "Back Beat No 1" by The Rondels.

A double-dose of rare soul and blues – served up here on a double-length set that's overflowing with plenty of obscure gems from the 50s and 60s! The format here follows some of the other collections on Stag O Lee – a nicely rough-n-ready sound, pulled from 45s from back in the day – and there's a heck of a lot more sounds and styles here than just the blues hinted at by the title! 32 tracks in all – with titles that include "Dead" by The Poets, "My Isabella" by Danny Cobb, "Castanet Senorita" by Ray Johnson, "My Love Is Coming Down" by Kenny Martin, "Come On Home" by George Allen, "Misery" by Barrett Strong, "Pneumonia" by Joe Tex, "Talkin Bout Me" by Moose John, "How Much Land" by Frank Minion, "Mama Linda" by The Monitors, "Little Girl" by Sugar Boy Williams, "Hard Times" by Jackie Ross, "Hey Boy" by The Sterlings, "Every Whicha Kinda Way" by Earl King, and "Going Back Where I Belong" by Sugar Pie Desanto.

Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The weirder side of the western music spectrum in the postwar years – not straight country tunes, but instead a whole host of songs and styles that change things up, and definitely live up to the "noir" and "jukebox" spirit in the title! CD brings together tracks from both the 10" vinyl releases volume 5 and 6 – and titles include "Satan's Child" by Anita Carter, "Everglades" by Dale Hawkins, "North Winds" by Chick Lewis, "Rain Dance" by Alvie Self, "Sweet Breeze" by Vernon Green & The Phantoms, "The Trance" by Billy Dixon & The Topics, "The Great Grandfather" by Bo Diddley, "Psycho" by Jack Kittel, "The Drifter" by Carl Perkins, "The Whipping Post" by Jody Reynolds, "The Devil's Queen" by Dorsey Burnette, "Mooshatanio" by Jimmie Driftwood, "North Wind" by Slim Whitman, "Blue Carnation" by Dennis Roberts, "Bandstand Doll" by Johnny Carroll, "Stamped" by Foy Willing & The Riders Of The Purple Sage, "My Downfall" by Virgil Holmes, and "Devil's Hand" by Mike Jarrett & Gene Herd.

✨✧ VariousExotic Blues & Rhythm Vol 6 – Sadaba (clear vinyl 10 inch LP) ... LP
Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Ultra-hip work from the end of the 50s and start of the 60s – the kind of weird, wild, and unusual singles you'd be likely to find way down on the list of singles available on a jukebox – often with hand-written title cards, because the music was so obscure! The tunes here are all at a midtempo groove – the kind of vamping, bad-stepping work that's been rediscovered by the funk collecting underground in recent years – tunes that were originally issued on 45s and 78s, mostly on small labels – in modes that are heavy on R&B, soul, and blues elements. Titles include "Exotic" by The Rhythm Kings, "Lover's Cruise" by Bracey Everett, "Sadaba" by Johnny Williams, "Cleo" by The Mark Five, "I Want To Love You" by Kenny & Joe, "Big Chief" by Young Jessie, "River In My Blood" by Steve Karmen, "Let The Daddy Hold You" by Otis Blackwell, and "You Need To Fall In Love" by Little Jimmy Ray.

Mississippi John HurtWorried Blues (180 gram pressing – with download) ... LP
Fat Possum, 1964. New Copy ... $13.99 18.99
Rare recordings of delta blues legend Mississippi John Hurt – captured solo and beautifully well on 3 dates in late 1964, recorded by Gene Rosenthal – with Hurt's distinctive way of a somehow gentle melodic acoustic blues guitar sound, coming from hard-strummed and plucked strings as unvarnished and amazing as can be – and a way with vocals that's just as unique and wonderful! It's got the intimacy of the best field recordings, but the sound quality and John's voice and guitar are in such fine form here, it feels "big" despite being as raw and real as can be. Includes "Slidin' Delta", "Louis Collins", "Staggerlee", "Monday Mornin' Blues", "Comin' Home", "Make Me A Pallet On Your Floor", "You Can't Come In", "Joe Turner", "Lonesome Am I", "Trouble Blues", "Nobody's Dirty Business", "Lovin' Spoonful", "Worried Blues" and "Avalon Blues".

Kashmere Stage BandOur Thing (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Kashmere Records/P-Vine (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $24.99
A bold statement from the Kashmere Stage Band – who've definitely got their own "thing" here right from the start – one of the coolest, grooviest, funkiest sounds you'll ever hear from a band of young kids in school! These guys easily match the hippest players in much more mature ensembles – and often even have a vibe that sounds a lot like the best blacksploitation funk of the time, or some of the funky big band work from overseas – driven on by a really strong sense of rhythm, and marked with some wonderful solos on tenor, trumpet, alto sax, and piano – plus great guitar from Johnny Reason! Titles include great remakes of "Burning Spear" and "Ode To Billie Joe" – plus "Boss City", "Take Five", "Summertime", and "Misty". CD

✨✧ Kashmere Stage BandKashmere Stage Band Plays Originals (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Kashmere Records/P-Vine (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An all-original set from the Kashmere Stage Band – one of the funkiest combos going in early 70s Texas! The album features a range of tunes written by bandleader Conrad Johnson – all hard-hitting numbers that take off from the group's roots as a funkier high school band, and which show their evolution into an even more jazz-inflected outfit! The sound here is very much in the mode of blacksploitation soundtrack work – as the compositions are filled with light and color, and have a richness that goes far beyond funky 45 work – but a groove that's stone cold all the way through. Titles include "Thunder Soul", "Do You Dig It Man", "Kashmere", "Head Wiggle", and "All Praises". CD

Kashmere Records/P-Vine (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An early gem from the Kashmere Stage Band – and a record that already has the ensemble burning with plenty of fire! These guys were a one-unit powerhouse in American grooves – one of the few US groups who really got the same sort of funky big band energy that all the better European combos were hitting – like the hip groups who recorded for MPS around the same time! But Kashmere are even more soulful, and even more down to earth – young players working under the direction of Conrad Johnson, who really brings out the best in their performance, and has no trouble throwing a lot of soul and funk into the mix as well! There's a great guitarist on a few tracks – Johnny Reason – whose solos give some of the cuts even more of an edge than usual – and titles include "Bumper To Bumper", "Sonny", "Thank You", "Boss City", "Take Five", "Are You Ready For This", and "Yesterday".

Kashmere Records/P-Vine (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A stunning batch of funky big band tracks from the Kashmere Stage Band – sounding a lot fuller than on their first LP – thanks to an expanded lineup that gives them a whole new sound! The group are grooving here in a mode that's a lot like classic 70s blacksploitation soundtrack work – with a full ensemble that features funky drums, electric bass, and keys in the rhythms, plus lots of tight funky horns over the top! Tracks are long, and groove with a jazzy flourish that we wouldn't have expected so strongly – hitting hard on plenty of nice nice numbers that include "Kash Register", "Do Your Thing", "Angel", "The Zero Point", and "Getting It Out Of My System".

BreakwaterBreakwater (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Arista/BMG/Get On Down, 1978. Used ... $9.99
A landmark set from a group who only ever gave the world two albums – but who've gone on to have a huge influence over the years! This initial offering from Breakwater is a masterful blend of jazzy fusion and mellower soul – a sound sifted together so perfectly, it really tops the rest of the combo's contemporaries – hitting a careful balance that never gets too cheesy or commercial, and which still manages to glow as strongly into the 21st century as it did when first released back in the day! The sound here is sublime – warm, but never sleepy – jazzy, but never cliched – and mixed in such a way that the vocals and instruments almost get center stage in the spotlight without trying to crowd one another out. Titles include the incredible "Work it Out" – worth the price of the record alone – plus "No Limit", "That's Not What We Came Here For", "Free Yourself", "Do It Till The Fluid Gets Hot", and "Feel Your Way". CD

Art FarmerWhen Farmer Met Gryce (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Prestige (Japan), 1955. Used ... $19.99
One of Art Farmer's pivotal mid 50s sides – recorded in the company of altoist Gigi Gryce, a great player and a budding young arranger who helped Farmer really formulate the best side of his sound! The tracks are lyrically modern – but still have a nice dose of soul in them – a wonderful blend that really sets the stage for the move that Art was making away from earlier trumpeters in jazz – into that hip territory that was neither too cool, nor too overblown – and which would almost be known as "Farmer-like" in years to come! The album features Gryce and Farmer in 2 different groups – one with Horace Silver on piano, Percy Heath on bass, and Kenny Clarke on drums – the other with Freddie Redd on piano, Addison Farmer on bass, and Art Taylor on drums. Titles include "Social Call", "Capri", "Deltitnu", "Stupendous Lee", and "Blue Concept". CD

Main Man/Cherry Red (UK), 1973/1974. New Copy 5 CDs ... $34.99
Searing live work from Iggy Pop and The Stooges – material recorded right around the same time as Raw Power – with the kind of frenetic energy as some of the stage shots of Iggy on the cover of that classic album! The Stooges had shut down before returning to glory in 1972 to launch themselves into their classic Raw Power record – and the 5CDs here feature the live material performed by the group in support of that release – leading up a a Detroit concert in February of 1974, which was to be the last Stooges show ever! Concerts are from LA (9/16/73), Detroit (10/10/73), Baltimore (11/73), New York (12/31/73), and Detroit again (2/9/74) – and there's a few great "Rant" tracks from Iggy – plus titles that include "Gimme Danger", "Heavy Liquid", "I Got Nothin", "Rich Bitch", "Louie Louie", "Cock In My Pocket", "Head On", "Search & Destroy", "Open Up & Bleed", "She Creatures Of The Hollywood Hills", "Raw Power", and "Wet My Bed".

Lord BuckleyBlowing His Mind & Yours Too ... LP
World Pacific, 1960. Near Mint- ... $19.99
Wild work from Lord Buckley – a really unusual figure on the west coast scene in the late 50s – kind of a beat comic, but one with a vibe that was all his own – and this way with language and odd spirit that was years ahead of the flower children! Not that Buck was any sort of hippie – but he was definitely hip, and had this jivey, jargony way of speaking that put him at the top of an era of groundbreaking stage talents like Lenny Bruce or Dick Gregory. This classic set features one side of live material, one studio – long bits that include "The Gasser", "Murder", "Subconsious Mind", "Fire Chief", and "Maharaja". LP, Vinyl record album

This is the second Sound System Scratch compilation from the deep treasure diggers at Pressure Sounds – who have again assembled staggeringly adventurous and hard to find Scratch productions from an amazing period at Black Ark.

He does a great job of reminding us here that he's still connected to his rural roots, without this really feeling like a throwback to later Uncle Tupelo or earlier Wilco at all – on batch of songs that are acoustic guitar and easygoing vocals forward.

Jazz Is Dead, 2020. New Copy 2LP ... $30.99 32.99
A great new showcase for the legendary keyboard work of Doug Carn – and a set that's very different both from his famous albums for the Black Jazz label, and some of his organ jazz records in more recent years too! The set's maybe got a more pronounced influence from Adrian Younge and Ali Shaheed Muhammad than some of the others in this series – as Carn's Hammond B3 and Fender Rhodes still get center stage, but the grooves are very much in the heavy funk style of Younge's legacy of recent recordings – sharp drums, strong basslines, and horns that are sometimes jazzy, sometimes seemingly touched by currents of Ethiopian work from the past. All tracks are originals, and titles include "Processions", "Dimensions", "Windfall", "Down Deep", "Freedom At Sunset", "Nunca Um Malandro", and "Lion's Walk". LP, Vinyl record album

The set brings together some of the best of that enterprise – and features live performances from 1969 through 1984 – all mastered by Bernie Grundman, with sound that really made most of the Zappa bootlegs on the market obsolete!

Ace (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Deep soul from the glory days of the Memphis scene – not the better-known work recorded at Stax, but material from the smaller American Sound Studio – a new game in town during the late 60s, and a place that forged it's very own legacy in Memphis music! American recorded a variety of styles – a bit like Muscle Shoals – but this collection not only focuses most strongly on the soul music cut at the studios, but also work by "The Memphis Boys" – the superb in-house session group that included top-shelf talents like Reggie Young and Tommy Cogbill on guitar, Bobby Emmons on keyboards, and Chips Moman at the head of the group. The great Dan Penn and Spooner Oldham also did plenty of work for American – on material that was issued on a variety of labels – Atlantic, Cameo, Bell, Sound Stage 7, Smash, and others – all collected here with a deep set of notes that really gets at the special vibe going down at American. Titles include "Burning Fire" by Arthur Conley, "Someone To Take Your Place" by Bobby Marchan, "I Don't Want To Have To Wait" by James & Bobby Purify, "Ain't That True Love" by Oscar Toney Jr, "There's A Heartbreak Somewhere" by Roscoe Shelton, "Comin To Bring You Some Soul" by Sam Baker, "It Ain't Fair" by Ben E King, "Don't Take Your Love" by The Blossoms, "So Much Love" by Dusty Springfield, "Broadway Walk" by Bobby Womack, "Holdin On" by Jerry Lee Lewis, and "On The Other Side" by Lee Jones & The Sounds Of Soul.

Maple/Future Days, 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A lost deep soul set from Lee Moses – a relatively obscure vocalist, but one who we'd rank right up there with James Carr, Wilson Pickett, or any of their contemporaries! Lee's music has a hard southern soul feel to it – sounding almost like a pile of 45s from a label like Sound Stage 7, or some more obscure imprint from below the Mason-Dixon line – even though the record was issued on the Maple label up north. And possibly it's Lee's odd northern placement with a deeply southern style that never got him his due back in the day – but that loss is our gain, as the record's an under-discovered treasure that's filled with really hard-wailing soul tunes! There's a slightly garagey feel to the production – quite gritty at times, with even more of an earthier undercurrent than you'd hear on work from Memphis or Muscle Shoals – and Lee matches this sound wonderfully with a really raspy approach to vocals. Titles include a great version of "California Dreaming", plus the tracks "Time & Place", "Got That Will", "Every Boy & Girl", "Hey Joe", "Free At Last", and "Adorable One". CD

Although a live album, Gratitude is one of Earth Wind & Fire's greatest from the mid 70s – a very tight batch of grooves that proves that Maurice White & Co. could play just as well on stage as they could in the studio – and the noise of the crowd going wild is enough to confirm that! And although a live set, the record's actually a bit half and half – with a few added studio tunes to keep the hits coming. Includes their classic version of Skip Scarborough's "Can't Hide Love", plus the mellow jams "Yearnin' Learnin'" and "Reasons", the funky "Shining Star", and a great cover of "Sun Goddess", which was also done by Ramsey Lewis with the group. LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeves. Cover has surface wear and light staining.)

✨✧ Gerry Mulligan QuartetGerry Mulligan Quartet (Pacific Jazz – PJLP 2) (10 inch LP) ... LP
Pacific Jazz, 1953. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
Gerry's second 10" album for the Pacific Jazz label – and almost as groundbreaking as the first! Not only is the quartet with Chet Baker featured strongly on side 1 – with classics that include "Cherry", "Carson City Stage", and "Motel" – but Lee Konitz joins the group on side two, cutting things up with his angular alto sax – a sound that's beautifully placed next to the poised horns of Mulligan and Baker, in a way that really gives the record even more life! Titles on that side include "Sextet", "I Can't Believe That You're In Love With Me", "Lover Man", and "Lady Be Good". LP, Vinyl record album

BreakwaterBreakwater/Splashdown (with bonus track) ... CD
Expansion (UK), 1978/1980. New Copy ... $15.99
A landmark pairing of records from a group who only ever gave the world two albums – but who've gone on to have a huge influence over the years! The first album, the initial offering from Breakwater, is a masterful blend of jazzy fusion and mellower soul – a sound sifted together so perfectly, it really tops the rest of the combo's contemporaries – hitting a careful balance that never gets too cheesy or commercial, and which still manages to glow as strongly into the 21st century as it did when first released back in the day! The sound here is sublime – warm, but never sleepy – jazzy, but never cliched – and mixed in such a way that the vocals and instruments almost get center stage in the spotlight without trying to crowd one another out. Titles include the incredible "Work it Out" – worth the price of the record alone – plus "No Limit", "That's Not What We Came Here For", "Free Yourself", "Do It Till The Fluid Gets Hot", and "Feel Your Way". Splashdown has a perfect blend of jazz and soul that only a few groups in the 70s really got right – maybe Pleasure, or The Blackbyrds – and most certainly Breakwater, who were one of the reigning champions of the scene! Rhythms are often upbeat, but not in a disco or club-oriented way – and the instrumentation is tight, but never slick or smooth – always nicely funky with a nice little crackle, even on the mellow cuts – in a way that's opened up this album to new audiences for many years. This set's got a nice bit of moog that wasn't on the group's first – used almost in Mizell-like to further enhance the sound – and titles include the classics "Say You Love Me Girl", "Let Love In", "Time", and "The One In My Dreams". CD also features a bonus track – "No Limit (ext version)". CD

Cy ColemanJamaica ... LP
Jubilee, 1957. Very Good ... $1.99
Cy Coleman takes on the music of Jamaica – a Broadway show that he didn't write, but which he really makes his own here through a mix of lively piano lines and vocals! Cy's better known as an instrumentalist, but his few spots of singing here are quite nice – raspy and understated, and just the right sort of charm for the tunes – delivered in a way that's probably quite different than the numbers must have sounded on the stage. The group's got a good spirit, too – some occasional "island" inflections, which are maybe more Latin jazz overall – as Cy works with Aaron Bell on bass, Ray Mosca and Osie Johnson on drums, Skeeter Best on guitar, and Romeo Penque on flute. Titles include "Savanna", "I Don't Think I'll End It All Today", "Take It Slow Joe", "Monkey In The Mango", and "Little Biscuit". LP, Vinyl record album

ShoesElektrafied – The Elektra Years 1979 to 1982 (Present Tense/Tongue Twister/Boomerang/rarities) (4CD set) ... CD
Elektra/Cherry Red (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 4CD ... $29.99
Three classic albums from Shoes, plus bonus tracks, and a full CD worth of rare material too! First up is Present Tense – a power-pop classic from Shoes – their first full length for Elektra Records, and a set that stands with all the best end of 70s gems from either coast! The songs are impeccable, and the group do a fantastic job of blending sharper guitars with really great lyricism – a mode that maybe makes the Illinois group a strong precursor for territory that The Replacements wouldn't hit until many years later – and which makes just about every track on the album a precious nugget that just gets better and better with time! Titles include "Now & Then", "Every Girl", "I Don't Wanna Hear It", "Three Times", "In My Arms Again", and "Too Late". On Tongue Twister, Shoes continue the brilliance of their first album for Elektra – serving up the kind of music that was so well-done, so subtle, it was maybe missed by most of the world at the time – even though it's gone onto the status of classic, thanks to legions of fans and critics! Shoes have a way with a tune that's unlike anyone else – maybe that compressed charm of Big Star, but fused into the sharper modes of the power pop years – but without any of the too commercial modes of some of the bigger groups of the time. Instead, the whole thing feels like you've just stumbled upon a brilliant band, playing in a backroom bar – which, unfortunately, is how Shoes spent too much of their career. Titles include "Only In My Sleep", "She Satisfies", "Found A Girl", "Hate To Run", "When It Hits", "Yes Or No", "Your Imagination", and "Girls Of Today". On Boomerang, Shoes maybe look a bit too new wave on the cover, but still sound perfect within – very much in charge of that perfect yet understated approach to a tune that has gone on to make them legends in all the many years since this album was released! The group were never out to change the world, and maybe that held them back at the time – but they were also never trying for big chart success, or too-slick modes – and there's a wonderfully honest, down to earth approach to the songwriting and production that clearly sets the stage for all the bigger late 80s groups that would follow in their wake. Nearly every tune is a completely catchy mofo – and titles include "Curiosity", "In Her Shadow", "Double Talk", "The Summer Rain", "Under The Gun", "The Tube", and "What Love Means". 4CD set features a huge amount of bonus material – 8 track demo versions of all three albums, added to their discs – and a bonus CD of 18 more rare tracks – all in a box, with a big booklet of notes!

Wooden Glass Featuring Billy WootenWooden Glass Recorded Live (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
P-Vine (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $26.99
Mad funky vibes from The Wooden Glass – a group led by vibist Billy Wooten – an obscure player in the history books, but one who has had a huge influence on 21st Century groove! Billy's got a hard style on the vibes that's like Bobby Hutcherson and Roy Ayers at their soulful best – working here with a tight combo that includes guitar and organ, very much in the mode of his classic work with the slightly more famous (although equally obscure) Indianapolis combo The Ninteenth Whole! The set's a live one, but it really cooks with a sweet electric feel – echoey, funky, and soulful – as tunes spin out in a staggering approach to the vibes that's unmatched by any record of its time. Billy was a huge influence on Madlib and the sound of Yesterday's New Quintet – and hearing this set, it's virtually a blueprint for that group's current work! Includes great covers of "In The Rain", "Day Dreaming", and "Love Is Here" – plus Wooten's excellent original tracks "Monkey Hips & Rice" and "Joy Ride". CD

✨✧ John Lee HookerSittin Here Thinkin ... LP
Muse, Late 50s. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great gritty sides from the mighty John Lee Hooker – material with a slightly obscure origin, but recorded in the late 50s, right in a stretch when he was cutting some of his classics! Hooker's guitar and vocals are center stage – both growling with a hell of a lot of soulful power – and the backing features just a bit of rhythm guitar, bass, and drums. Titles include "I Bought You A Brand New Home", "Teasin Me", "My Cryin Days Are Over", "Sad & Lonesome", "How Long", and "Mean Mistreatin". LP, Vinyl record album
