VariousGunsmoke Vols 3 & 4 – Dark Tales Of Western Noir From A Ghost Town Jukebox (10 inch vinyl) ... CD
Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $15.99
A cool collection of really oddball numbers – unusual country, offbeat pop numbers, and a fair bit of cuts that have a popcorn groove somewhere down there at the bottom! These aren't the usual sorts of cuts you might expect – and instead, the collection's definitely on the hipper side of the spectrum from the things we hear from the Stag O Lee label – maybe the farther reaches past Bear Family and Ace records – into the real hinterland of the obscure 45. CD brings together material from the 10" LP sets vols 3 and 4 – and tracks include "Fire Of Love" by Jody Reynolds, "Lonely Moon" by Johnny Wells, "On The Horizon" by Ben E King, "Squaw Girl" by Fatima, "Hellbound Train" by Marie Robertson, "Tennessee Hillbilly Ghost" by Eddy Arnold, "Hard Working Man" by Dorsey Burnette, "Lumber City" by Big Buddy K, "Wild Streak" by Johnny Fallin, "Ghost Town" by Eddie Miller, "Down Bound Train" by Frank Gay & The Gayblades, "Bury Me Deep" by Bill Shaw, "The Living Dead" by Jim Burgett, "Mistery's Child" by Richard Hayes, "Workin On The Santa Fe" by Randy Starr, "Cell Walls" by Craig Brown, and "Rebel Heart" by Larry Hall.

VariousHard Row To Hoe Vol 1 – Dark & Moody Rhythm & Blues Popcorn Style ... LP
Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $19.99
Great grooves from a really unusual strain of soul music – one that wasn't categorized at the time, but which came to be known as "popcorn" by European collectors of the music – who often focused in on a very distinct pattern of rhythm and production! The work here is a mix of soul and R&B, and often has this leaping, loping sort of style – a bouncing groove that's different than the Northern Soul that was favored more strongly by British collectors over the years – but which, like that scene, really opens our ears up to American soul in a very different way! Titles include "It's A Sad Thing" by The Simms Twins, "I'd Think It Over" by Sam Fletcher, "She's Gone Too Long" by Roy Brown, "Daniel Webster & The Devil" by Big Daddy, "It Ain't No Use" by Lou Johnson, "65 Bars" by Louis Jordan, "Move It" by Landy McNeil, "Hard Row To Hoe" by Otis Lee, and "Black Gal" by Roy Gaines.

VariousRockinitis Vols 1 & 2 – Electric Blues From The Rock & Roll Era ... CD
Stag O Lee (Germany), 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $15.99
Skip the "rock" in the title, because this set is pure blues all the way through – filled with rare treasures from those years when the electric guitar first started dominating the music – with a heady sound that rang from the Chicago scene down to Texas – and all the way out to the west coast as well! The package is maybe a bit more rough-edged and less gimmicky than some of other titles on the Stag O Lee label – with a strong focus on gritty blues from the heyday of the small indie label scene of the 50s. CD brings together both volumes 1 and 2 of the vinyl set – with 32 titles that include "Tell Me Who" by Bobo Jenkins, "I'm Gonna Love You" by Eddie Taylor, "Mean Old Train" by Papa Lightfoot, "I Feel So Worried" by Sammy Lewis, "The Wolf Pack" by Kid Thomas, "Just You & I" by Guitar Red, "Your Love Keeps A Workin On Me" by Lulu Reed, "Don't Cut Out On Me" by Tender Slim, "I'm Tired Of Beggin" by The Sly Fox, "Please Don't Go" by Johnny Acey, "Shim Sham Shimmy" by Champion Jack Dupree, "Just Can't Say" by Willie Nix, "It Takes Time" by Otis Rush, "609 Boogie" by John Lee Hooker, "Hard Hearted Woman" by Eddie Burns, "Stranger Blues" by Elmore James, "Little Tiger" by H-Bomb Ferguson, "You Give Me Nothin But The Blues" by Guitar Slim, "The Late Freight Twist (part 1)" by Floyd Dixon, "I Wish You Would" by Billy Boy, "Don't Start Cryin Now" by Slim Harpo, and "A Fool No More" by Eddie Hope.

VariousSlow Grind Fever Vol 9 – Still Yet More Adventures In The Sleazy World Of Popcorn Noir ... LP
Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $19.99
Plenty to grind to here – a moody mix of R&B, early soul, and other gritty styles from the late 50s and early 60s – served up in a set that may well be the best so far in this excellent series! In a world where some of the contemporary R&B collectors aim for cuts that are supposed to shake certain parts of the female anatomy, these guys look more for deep tracks that groove very slowly – with a kind of blue lights in the basement vibe! Titles include "Mr Blues" by Jo & Ann, "Hey Hully Gully No 2" by Van Pince & His Complex, "Danger" by Jimmy Witherspoon, "Living By The Gun" by Dick Holler & His Rockets, "I'm Waitin" by Lee Richards with Left Bates Orchestra, "The Web" by Abie Available Baker, "The Place" by Johnny Guidry with Jeanie & The Clowns, and "Sweetheart" by Frank Heppingstall.

VariousSlow Grind Fever Volume 10 – Still Yet More Adventures In The Sleazy World Of Popcorn Noir ... LP
Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $19.99
Slow grinders and lots lots more – a sweet set of raunchy little numbers from the years in which teen pop and rock and roll were taking over the mainstream – but still left lots of space for the creation of nasty little singles like these! As with previous volumes, the music is a mix of jazz, R&B, early soul, and more – some tracks by familiar names, others by obscure artists who may have only cut the single track you'll hear on this set! Titles include "The Girl That Radiates That Charm" by June Alexander, "I'm Asking Forgiveness" by CL & The Pictures, "Mr Johnny Q" by The Bobbettes, "What Have I Done" by Jimmy Rogers, "To Be Loved By You" by Marie Knight, "On My Way" by Eddie Lang, and "Taboo" by The Caribs.

VariousSongs From Satan's Jukebox Vols 1 & 2 – Country, Rockabilly, Hillbilly, & Gospel For Satan's Sake ... CD
Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $15.99
A host of great songs about the devil – served up here in an array of raw styles from the glory days of the indie single! Long before metal rockers and other groups brought a love of Satan into the musical mainstream, there were a host of other artists who were singing about the dark prince in a very different way – respectfully fearful, and woefully repentant – in modes that were equally well suited to hillbilly, rockabilly, and even a bit of gospel interpretation! This set focuses most strongly on those redemptive modes that emerged from hillbilly, and moved into rock and country as the 60s approached – and as with other Stag-O-Lee collections, the choice of singles is as wonderful as the overall package. Titles include "I Could Love The Devil Out Of You" by Joe Carson, "Satan's A-Waiting" by Sonny Burns, "Devil's Child" by Anita Carter, "Satan's Wife" by Jessie Floyd, "The Devil's Queen" by Johnny & Dorsey Burnette, "Hell Bound Train" by Frank Hutchinson, "Devil In The Bayou" by Harry Choats, "The Devil My Conscience & I" by Billy Barton,"The Devil Made A Masterpiece" by Johnny Horton, "Let Me Go Devil" by Johnny Bond, "Race With The Devil" by Gene Vincent, "The Devil's Train" by Roy Acuff, "Devil's Hot Rod" by Johnny Tyler, "Let Me Go Devil" by Wade Ray, "Get Behind Me Satan" by Reno & Smiley, "Miss Satan" by Frankie Laine, "Satan's Jeweled Crown" by The Louvin Brothers, and "Don't Shake Hands With The Devil" by Cowboy Copas. 24 tracks in all!

VariousTrash Can Records Vol 3 – The Devil's Pad – One Man's Trash Is Another Man's Treasure (10 inch LP) ... LP
Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $18.99
Get these records out of the trash and on to your turntable – because they're way too good to throw away! In fact, they're so good they're great – the kind of sweet little platters that were so ahead of their time, they were probably never appreciated back in the day – and which often have a kind of genre-hopping, category-stomping quality that makes them ripe for rediscovery all these many years later! As with other collections on the Stag-O-Lee label, there's a real love for the obscure going on here – and a fair bit of the tunes mix together raunchy rock or R&B instrumentation with lots of Latin or exotic currents in the rhythms. Titles on volume 3 include "Tequila" by Didier Lapayrere, "Voo Doo Dolly" by Jimmie Hombs & The Invictas, "Limbo" by Westwoods, "Temptation" by Maria Elena & The Twilights, "The Devil's Pad" by Paul Leader & The HB Barnum's Circats, "Trap Of Love" by The Premiers, "Kookie's Mad Pad" by Ed Kookie Byrnes, "Theme From Von Hutch" by Jerry Madison & The Space Men, and "Cool Man" by Jerry Hanson.

Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Wonderful sounds from that amazing time in American music – a period when it seemed that there were so many records being made, new sounds were always finding a way to get onto vinyl! This collection represents an excellent criss-crossing of modes – exotic styles finding their way into soul, jazz, blues, R&B, and even a little bit of rock – thanks to plenty of weird instrumental modes used to great effect in the studio, and some nicely heavy percussion too! There's no set genre on the collection, but the music is all nicely unified in a fantasy of the exotic – which makes for some plenty playful tracks throughout. CD features the full tracks from the 10" vinyl releases Loc-A-Li and Eeny Meeny – and titles include "Jack Hammer" by Rusty Evans, "Eeny Meeny Minie Mo" by Little Luther, "Yabucoa" by Hector Rivera, "Princess Of Persia" by Billy Grammer, "Call Of The Jungle" by Carl Stevens, "I'm Hurted" by Mamie Perry, "Say There" by Wes Reynolds, "Shakin All Over" by Tommy Bruce, "Oh Lord Give Me Back My Baby" by Bobby Nichols, "Loc A Li" by Little Victor & His Jivin Five, "The Magic Ring" by Dante & Friends, "Don't Leave My Arms" by Terry Phillips, and "Ain't That Bad" by Pancho Villa & The Bandits.

The set is of full of chiming, hook filled singles like the huge title track – with fairly brassy arrangements, piano and chorus backing vocals usually well up in the mix – but Lloyd carries the groove perfectly well – there's no matching his charismatic vocals! 27 tracks in all: "Stagger Lee", "You Need Love", "Where Were You On Our Wedding Day", "Personality", "Have You Ever Had The Blues", "Lady Luck", "Question", "Oh Oh Oh", "Mailman Blues", "Why", "Lawdy Miss Clawdy", "Shop Around", "At Last", "Spanish Harlem", "Once In A While" and much more!

✨✧ Mississippi John HurtWorried Blues (180 gram pressing – with download) ... LP
Fat Possum, 1964. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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".

Clifford JordanClifford Jordan & The Magic Triangle On Stage Vol 3 ... LP
Steeplechase (Denmark), 1975. Near Mint- ... $19.99
Excellent work from Clifford Jordan – far better than the usual Steeplechase session of the time! The vibe here is similar to Jordan's work at the time on the Strata East label – played in a very similar group, with Cedar Walton on piano, Sam Jones on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums – way more than just a standard rhythm section, and with Jordan in tow, a compelling quartet with a really unique sound! There's a great depth to the work here – hardly the American soloist taking up space that you might get on other European live dates from the period – and the tracks are long, with an angular soul jazz finish. Both Jordan and Walton get plenty of room for expression – and titles on this third volume include "Seven Minds", "Shoulders", "St Thomas", and "Bleecker Street Theme". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jerry Lee LewisGolden Hits Of/Live At The Star Club/Greatest Live Show On Earth/By Request ... CD
Smash/BGO (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99
A quartet of early Smash Records albums from Jerry Lee Lewis – including some especially smoking live material! First up is Golden Hits – an early moment of Smash Records genius from Jerry Lee Lewis – a set that was one of his first for the label, after many years at Sun – and a record that definitely sought to leave the new imprint's stamp on the material! As the title implies, most of the tracks are older hits by Jerry – Sun Records material, but recast here with some of the 60s fullness that Smash did so well – although oddly not far from the roots of Sun, given that the whole thing was recorded at the Nashville studios of Sam Phillips, with Billy Sherrill at the engineering deck! Technical details aside, though – Jerry's already starting to show some of those country modes that would set fire to the second chapter of his career – on titles that include "Down The Line", "End Of The Road", "Break Up", "You Win Again", "Crazy Arms", "Fools Like Me", and "I'll Make It Up To You". Live At The Star Club was recorded in Hamburg, Germany – and is an incredible 60s performance from Jerry Lee Lewis – proof that the man was always on fire when he worked overseas, even if his star had dimmed a bit back home! Jerry gets sharp, tight backings from The Nashville Teens – but the Lewis is center stage throughout – really wailing on piano, and singing in this unbridled style that maybe even blows away his early singles – especially when combined with the sense of personality he brings out in a live setting. Titles include "Money", "What'd I Say", "I Got A Woman", "Whole Lotta Shakin Goin On", "Long Tall Sally", "Lewis Boogie", and "Matchbox". Greatest Live Show On Earth is a great early live album from the Smash Records years of Jerry Lee Lewis – and a set that really shows the new fire that was burning for the singer as he moved away from Sun Records! Smash always did a great job with live records – and this one's got a great approach that really captures the enthusiasm of the audience, the intensity of the performance, and all the charms of the man himself! Both Jerry's vocals and piano are very well-recorded – and titles include "Who Will The Next Fool Be", "No Particular Place To Go", "Together Again", "Long Tall Sally", "I Got A Woman", "Memphis", and "Jenny Jenny". On By Request, another live set from 1966 – Jerry's working with the super-tight Memphis Beats, who really manage to keep time with the boundless energy of their leader! Jerry's completely on fire – both vocally, and on the piano – which he completely decimates with fast-moving chords, and the kind of keyboard runs that must have been a piano tuner's nightmare! There's also just a hint of the country that would soon become a much bigger part of Jerry's career – mixed with really strong live versions of early rockin hits. Titles include "Little Queenie", "How's My Ex Treating You", "Money", "Crying Time", "I'll Sail My Ship Alone", "You Win Again", and "Green Green Grass Of Home". CD

If the opening couple tracks set the bar a little to high to be sustained to the end, there's still a lot to love here, and the other titles include "Weather Storm", "Spying Glass", "Better Things", "Eurochild", "Sly", "Heat Miser" and "Light My Fire".

MekonsQuality Of Mercy Is Not Strnen ... LP
Virgin/Superior Viaduct, 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
The tremendous debut of The Mekons – a very different group at this stage than the well-loved act that has graced the Chicago scene for years! Instead, The Mekons resonate with a quality that really shows their link to the same Leeds scene that spawned Gang Of Four – and, if the gods were just, this album would have gotten the same sort of exposure and enthusiasm as that group's Entertainment – as The Mekons have a fantastic blend of punk, jagged rhythms, and wit – the last of which is maybe summed up by the cover and title, which is the group's play on the old idea of an infinite number of monkeys at an infinite number of typewriters being able to write Shakespeare! The songs are wonderful – a great counterpart to their first few singles on the Fast Product compilation – and titles include "Join Us In The Countryside", "Like Spoons No More", "After 6", "Watch The Film", "I Saw You Dance", "Lonely & Wet", and "Dan Dare".

Sweet electric soul from Evelyn King – and a set that features lots of contributions from a young Kashif!

There's a nicely clean feel here that keeps the record moving strongly forward – and even though Evelyn's vocals are sometimes second-stage next to the beats and keyboards, they still have a way of sending the tunes home in the end. Titles include "Get Loose", "Back To Love", "I'm Just Warming Up", "Betcha She Don't Love You", "Love Come Down", and "I Can't Stand It". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousMoodsetters – From The Amphonic & Soundstage Library ... LP
Buried Treasure (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A buried treasure's worth of gems from the Amphonic sound library – the record company started by Syd Dale – whose 60s work for KPM was some of the grooviest of the time! Syd's on a few cuts here, but most of the music is by other names who recorded for the company – including a few you'll know from earlier British jazz recordings in the mainstream, mixed with others who are lesser-known sound library talents – often with a strong electric vibe to their sound! Given the date range here – the tracks run from 1973 to 1985 – it's great to hear the evolution of the UK sound library modes in this second generation of the scene – and a good number of the cuts have some especially strong keyboard modes. Titles include "Border Incident" by Alan Parker, "Bleeps & Impulses" by Robert Alan Owen, "Rhythm Riot" and "Hostile Moods" by Frank Ricotti, "Marlow PI" by Vick Flick, "The New Elizabethans" by Harpsichord Rhythm Group, "Bubblegum" and "Computer Pop" by Anne Dudley, "Interface" by Monica Beale, "Thunderfoot" by Keith Mansfield, "All On A Summer's Day" by Syd Dale, "News Travels Fast" and "Tribal Warfare" by Jim Lawless, and "January's Child" by Paddy Kingsland.

Earth Wind & FireGratitude ... LP
Columbia, 1975. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $11.99
Great stuff! 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

Art FarmerWhen Farmer Met Gryce ... LP
Prestige, 1955. Near Mint- ... $16.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Dibia$eBonus Levels ... LP
10 Thirty, 2019. New Copy ... $23.99 24.98
Dibia$e takes on 8-bit video game era samples – putting together a fun, funky blast of a hip hop instrumentals set that pairs retro futuristic synth tones, bleeps and bits from classic video game franchises with more straightforward timeless beatcraft! It's wonderful stuff that for sure speaks to gamers of a certain age, with some random vocal samples from tv spots and other thematic touches, but Dibia$e is a first and foremost a top notch producer, not a novelty album composer – so this works 100% as solid leftfield hip hop instrumentals. Includes "King Bowser", "Link Up", "Tornado Spinkicks", "Ninja Starz", "Dragon Knucklez", "Castlevania (14KT Remix)", "Mushroom 1 Ups", "Wizard Spells", ""Smack Up", "Metroid (Elaquent Remix)", "Vorhees", "Piston Honda", "Power Up", "Castle Lair", "Jungle Stage" and more.

Bob Marley & The WailersBirth Of A Legend – 1963 to 1966 ... CD
Epic, Mid 60s. Used ... $3.99
Early, early Coxsone Dodd produced sides of groovy rocksteady, voiced by a young Bob Marley with Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer. While we don't find this material nearly as compelling as his later work produced by Lee Perry and then his huge international hits, it's great Studio One rocksteady and an interesting portrait of a legend in the earliest stages of his career. Twenty tracks, including "Simmer Down", "Maga Dog", "It Hurts To Be Alone", "I'm Still Waiting", "Dancing Shoes", "Do You Feel The Same Way" and "Love & Affection". CD

Lee MorganSonic Boom (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1967. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Lost genius from trumpeter Lee Morgan – a session recorded for Blue Note in 1967, but not issued until the late 70s – and even then, only for a very short time! The session has Morgan moving into that wonderful last stage of his career – working in tight formation towards a sound that still had that groovier hardbop styles of earlier recordings, but which also unfolds towards a more ambitious spiritual jazz mode. The writing on the session is superb – original tunes that crackle with energy in a surge of dark notes and shadowy moods, inspiring the soloists to express themselves at levels that rank with their best work of the time! The group features David Newman on tenor – sounding completely different, and far more righteous, than on his Atlantic sides of the 60s – plus Cedar Walton on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums. A great sound overall – right up there with Tom Cat or The Gigolo for lyrical modernism – and with titles that include "Sneaky Pete", "The Mercenary", "Sonic Boom", and "Mumbo Jumbo". CD

Sun Ra & John CageJohn Cage Meets Sun Ra – The Complete Film (DVD & clear vinyl 7 inch single) (2019 Record Store Day Release) ... DVD
Modern Harmonic, 1987. New Copy DVD & 7 inch ... $25.99
A fantastic package – a 7" sleeve that contains the full film of the meeting between Sun Ra and John Cage – legendary meeting of talents from two different sides of the underground – avant composer Cage and jazz visionary Ra – both performing together at a special one-night event that took place at Coney Island in 1987! The set doesn't really feature Ra jamming with Cage (as if anyone could "jam" with John Cage!) – and instead, both players were on the stage at the same time, but would each step aside to let the other do their thing – Cage would vocalize in these amazing passages that are right up there with the most beautiful vocal work he ever did, alongside some "silent" performances too – and Ra would play keyboard solos that have a beautifully offbeat electric vibe! The package features the full film on DVD for the first time ever – and also includes a bonus 7" single – with the selections "Empty Words & Keyboards" and "Silent Duet 2" – both of them very unusual meetings of the minds.

✨✧ Albert AylerSpiritual Unity (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
ESP/Get Back (Italy), 1964. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A landmark recording – Albert Ayler's first album for the ESP label, and a record that hit the jazz world like a bullet! Spiritual Unity sets the stage for a format that would become huge in the European avant scene of the 70s, 80s, 90s, and even today – the sax-driven power-trio, tenor against bass and drums, working freely with less rhythmic constraints than before, searching for new sounds and new modes of expression, working through changes in a style first proposed by Sonny Rollins, but taken to new intensity by the New York underground of the 60s. That sound is summed up here perfectly by Ayler, Gary Peacock, and Sunny Murray – working together with an edgey brilliance, on classic tracks that include "Ghosts: First Variation", "Ghosts: Second Variation", "The Wizard", and "Spirits".

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

Plus, the album is expanded here by 6 more tracks – all recorded in 1969, and only briefly issued on a 2LP late 70s album called The Procrastinator. These tunes have a slightly different, almost sadder feel – with a group that includes Julian Priester, George Coleman, and Harold Mabern – on more wonderful originals that include "Cla Til Da", "Uncle Rough", "Mr Johnson", and "The Stroker".

✨✧ BreakwaterBreakwater/Splashdown (with bonus track) ... CD
Expansion (UK), 1978/1980. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Pete TownshendWho Came First (2CD version – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Universal, 1972. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic first album from Pete Townshend – one that showed the world that he was a hell of a force to be reckoned with, even away from The Who! There's some elements here that link back to Pete's work with the band, but the music here is already showing lots of new ideas brewing in his solo space – some of the greater sensitivity of Townshend's solo voice – which might not always get showcased when Roger Daltrey was taking the lead – and also some different musical strands that might not have been right for The Who. Ronnie Lane takes the lead on "Evolution" – which you'll recognize from the world of The Faces – and other titles include the original acoustic version of "Pure & Easy", plus "Nothing Is Everything (Let's See Action)", "Time Is Passing", "Forever's No Time At All", "There's A Heartache Following Me", "Content", "Parvardigar", and "Sheraton Gibson". This expanded version comes in a cool book-size package, with added liner notes and new mastering. Also features 16 more bonus tracks that include "His Hands", "The Seeker (2017 edit)", "Sleeping Dog", "Day Of Silence", "Mary Jane (stage a)", "I Always Say (2017 edit)", "Begin The Beguine (2017 mix)", "Baby O'Riley (instrumental)", "The Love Man (stage c)", "Content (stage a)", "Parvardigar (alt take)", "There's A Fortune In Those Hills", "Meher Baby In Italy", "Nothing Is Everything (earlier take)", "Evolution (live)", and "Drowned (live in India)".

A set that does a fantastic job of capturing the great energy that Ike & Tina Turner brought to their famous live appearances – honed to a sharp edge by this time in their career, thanks to countless years on the road! Ike was always as much a master of ceremonies as James Brown was on the stage – and here, he makes ample space for Tina Turner's lead vocals, great support from The Ikettes, and some especially great work from his band – who are increasingly funky here than just a few years before! Many of the tunes are numbers originally done by others, but really transformed in this setting – and the record also features introductory patter from DJs Bob Jones and Herb Campbell – and titles that include "There Was A Time/African Boos", "A Fool In Love", "Funky Street", "Everyday People", "Gimme Some Loving", "Son Of A Preacher Man", "Respect", and "Goodbye So Long" CD

United Artists/Universal (Japan), 1971. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
The Ike & Tina Turner Revue shakes the foundation at Carnegie Hall on April Fools Day, 1971! There's a good reason for there being so many live albums by Ike & Tina – it's because they're damn great on stage – and this NYC set is a strong showcase for The Ikettes and The Kings Of Rhythm, too! The group was riding a peak wave of popularity around this time, and they cover a wide variety of songs in a set that's masterfully-paced – starting out slow and building up intensity as it goes! Titles include the Ikettes-led "Piece Of My Heart" and "Everyday People", the thunderous Tina intro "Doin' The Tina Turner", "Sweet Soul Music", "Proud Mary", "I Smell Trouble", "Ike's Tune", "I Want To Take You Higher", "I've Been Loving You Too Long", "Respect" and more.

✨✧ Ahmed Abdul-MalikEast Meets West ... LP
RCA, 1960. Very Good- ... $29.99
A brilliant mix of jazz and world music! Abdul-Malik was the legendary bass player from the fifties who mixed straight jazz playing with traditional Middle Eastern rhythms – and although he most famously recorded albums with Monk as a regular bassist, his albums on his own are amazing blends of jazz and world music, done years before anyone else had contemplated doing so! This album is similar to Abdul-Malik's Jazz Sahara album, in which he plays quite a bit on the Oud – but in this one the ensemble is much more jazz-oriented, and features Lee Morgan, Curtis Fuller, Benny Golson, and Johnny Griffin. The Oud holds center stage on most tracks, but then it drops out, and Morgan and Griffin come wailing in on solos that will rip your socks off! Titles include "Rooh", "La Ibky", "Takseem", "Searchin", and "El Ghada". Fantastic!!!! LP, Vinyl record album
(Living Stereo pressing with deep groove. Cover has some heavy edge wear, half split seams, and very light stains on back.)
