Isley Jasper IsleyBroadway's Closer To Sunset Blvd. ... LP
CBS, 1984. Near Mint- ... $7.99
The first breakaway effort from the trio of Ernie Isley, Chris Jasper, and Marvin Isley – a set that's got an even leaner groove than some of the Isley Brothers material from years before! The group really hit their stride right away – stepping out in a sweet array of funky rhythms that have some definite 80s touches on the beats, yet which still share all the best Isleys elements overall! Guitar parts are especially sharp – that carved in soul sound that showed up in most Isleys projects from the early 70s onwards – and the vocals have a great sense of warmth and soul, especially on the mellower tunes in the set, which turn down some of the more hook-heavy rhythms heard on other tracks. Titles include "Serve You Right", "Sex Drive", "Love Is Gonna Last Forever", "Kiss & Tell", "I Can't Get Over Losin You", "Look The Other Way", "Break This Chain", and "Broadway's Closer Than Sunset Blvd". LP, Vinyl record album

Chuck BerryToronto Rock & Roll Revival 1969 ... CD
Sunset Blvd, 1969. New Copy ... $16.99 17.99
A searing live set from Chuck Berry – one that's way better than the "rock and roll revival" in the title! In 1969, Chuck was still completely on fire – after making some albums for Mercury that were filled with expansive guitar lines and really great sounds – and about to move back to Chess, where he'd experiment with funk too! Here, Berry stretches out in a live setting with all these wicked long guitar solos – of a sort that you'd be hard-pressed to find on earlier records – almost like he's showing the Hendrix generation that he was there first! Sure, most of the tunes are familiar – but the versions here are very different – and titles include "Wee Wee Hours", "Memphis Tennessee", "Maybellene", "I'm Your Hoochie Coochie Man", "Rock & Roll Music", "School Day", "Johnny B Good/Carol/Promised Land", and "Reelin & Rockin".

Stephane GrappelliFrom Paris With Love (3CD set) ... CD
Sunset Blvd, 1949/1954/1969/Early 80s. New Copy 3CD ... $29.99 31.99
A whole host of rare work from this legendary French jazz musician – including 18 unreleased tracks in this 3CD/56 track package! Stephane may look like a classical musician with his tux and violin on the cover – but he's a hell of a jazz player, and one who really transformed both the sound of jazz in Europe, and the use of the violin – thanks to his work with the legendary Hot Club Quintet! CD1 features Grappelli's final recordings with guitarist Django Reinhardt – the famous gypsy swing musician who really revolutionized his instrument in the 30s and 40s – heard here with Grappelli on a total of 21 titles that include "Clopin Clopant", "Just A Gigolo", "La Mer", "Blue Lou", "My Blue Heaven", "What A Difference A Day Makes", and "After You've Gone". CD2 begins with 11 tracks recorded in Paris sessions in 1954 – with players who include Jack Dieval on piano on some cuts, and guitarist Henri Crolla on some others – titles that include "You Took Advantage Of Me", "I Like To Recognize The Tune", "Alemberts", "Looking At You", and "The World Is Waiting For The Sunrise". CD2 also features 6 more tracks recorded in duets with Joe Venuti in 1969 – and CD3 features 18 more live tracks, all material from later years – with work from guitarist Diz Disley! CD

Lightnin HopkinsKing Of Dowling Street (3CD set) ... CD
Sunset Blvd, Late 50s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 3CD ... $26.99 28.99
Sure, you've got other Lightnin Hopkins CDs back home in your collection – but this set is will pretty darn essential – as it features a whopping 57 songs in all, including 37 unreleased tracks, and other material that's hard to find on CD! CD1 features some of Hopkins' best work of the early years – including material recorded for the TNT label in Texas, and other cuts for the Fire Records label – plus some other hard to find rarities. CD2 features even more obscure material – a full album from 1964 that Hopkins recorded for Pickwick, and some hard-to-find 70s recordings that are pretty great too! CD3 features live material – including tracks from the Bird Lounge and Ash Grove, the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, and a Houston set recorded the year before he passed away! CD

Mississippi John HurtMr Hurt Goes To Washington ... CD
Sunset Blvd, Mid 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $24.99 25.99
Really great later recordings from Mississippi John Hurt – recorded in Washington DC, hence the title – and done in this stripped-down mode that really captures Hurt at his best! The tracks were all recorded for the Library Of Congress, mostly on the stage of the Coolidge Auditorium, but with an intimacy that's very different than some sort of live or festival situation – as there's great resonance in the guitar, almost making the whole thing feel as if was a project for Takoma Records! The set features a massive 40 tracks in all – and titles include "Let The Mermaids Flirt With Me", "Trouble I've Had All My Day", "Pera Lee", "Walking The Floor Over You", "Nobody's Dirty Business", "Candy Man", "Richland Woman Blues", "I Got Mine", "Good Morning Miss Carrie", "Poor Boy A Long Way From Home", "Blessed Be The Name", and "I'm Satisfied".

Gladys Knight & The PipsEssential Gladys Knight & The Pips 1961 to 1965 ... CD
Sunset Blvd, Early 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $20.99 21.99
If you only know Gladys Knight from her Motown classics, or her big hits of the early 70s, you'll find a huge amount to discover here – because right from the start, the lady and her group were really something special! The idea of a male/female vocal group was a bit unique in the early 60s – not completely uncommon, but never handled with the perfection of Gladys Knight & The Pips – as the mixture of Knight's richly soulful lead and the harmonies of the trio of male singers was incredible – captured very strongly by Harlem producer Bobby Robinson, with singles that appeared on his own Fire/Fury label, and Vee Jay as well! There have been other sets that bring together work from this time, but this might be the most complete we've ever seen – 40 tracks in all, with a few alternates, and a few solo tracks by The Pips as well – titles that include "Operator", "Come See About Me", "Go Away Stay Away", "Who Knows", "Walking In Circles", "Jungle Love", "Linda", "Darling", "One More Lonely Night", "Every Beat Of My Heart", "Room In Your Heart", "It Hurts So Bad", "Letter Full Of Tears", "The Devil In Me", "Daybreak", "Lovers Always Forgive", and "How Do You Say Goodbye".

Mance LipscombNavasota ... CD
Sunset Blvd, 1972. New Copy 2CD ... $23.99 24.99
Rare live work from the great Mance Lipscomb – most of it from that early 60s time when his music was being discovered by a larger audience from the first time ever! Mance was born in 1895 – but as the notes point out, he never got the chance to make records during the early 78rpm blues boom – and instead had to wait for the 60s to finally get discovered, recorded, and presented to the rest of the world outside his home territory near Navasota, Texas! CD1 features a live performance done for radio in Boston in 1972 – just Mance on vocals and guitar, recorded with a nice sense of warmth, and with a bit of vocalization with the audience as Lipscomb announces some of the tunes on the set. CD2 features material recorded in 1963 and 1964, much closer to home – done in Houston for Homecooking Records, and mixed here with one other obscure set of Houston performances. The 2CD set features 33 tracks in all – a great addition to the too-small catalog of recordings from Lipsomb's later life – with titles that include "Keep On Truckin", "Alabama Jubilee", "Texas Blues", "Diddy Wah Diddy", "Rag In F", "Mama Don't Allow", "I Want To Do Something For You", "True Religion", and "One Thin Dime".

Sonny Terry & Brownie McGheeWorking Man Blues ... CD
Sunset Blvd, 1961/1974/1980. New Copy 2CD ... $25.99 26.99
A trio of different slices of work from this legendary blues duo – all material that goes way past some of the obvious reissues on the market! The first quarter of the set features the rare album You Hear Me Talkin – originally cut for the Choice Records label in 1961 – done with a very stripped-down vibe, and work from both artists on vocals – with Sonny on harmonica and Brownie McGhee on guitar! That spirit continues on the second quarter of material – 11 more tracks recorded in 1980 at a festival in Cologne, Germany – with an expanded lineup that includes some drums in the mix, but only to boost up more of the energy between Sonny and Brownie! The last half of the CD is some of the rarest, and maybe some of the best work on the set – two different festival performances from 1974 – one at Cornell, the other in Germany – recorded a month apart, and capturing the duo in very lively formation between some very enthusiastic audiences! This second half features 19 tracks in all – and really shows the charm of the pair at their best. CD

Willie NelsonTexas Willie ... CD
Sunset Blvd, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $23.99 24.99
Very early work from Willie Nelson – a set that doesn't have much in the way of notes, but which includes a huge amount of material we've never heard before – a total of 40 early tracks that show that Willie was a genius right from the start! The tunes are likely all originals from the mighty pen of the young singer – soon to create a few big hits for more famous country contemporaries – and Willie's presentation of the material is great, with a great edge in his voice, usually set to small combo backings that have just the right moody vibe to match his lyrics! These are less like demos than cuts that feel like they were lifted from small label 45s before Nelson hit the bigger time at Liberty and RCA – with titles that include "I'm Going To Lose A Lot Of Teardrops", "Blame It On The Times", "Darkness On The Face Of The Earth", "Any Old Arms Won't Do", "Both Ends Of The Candle", "Right From Wrong", "Pride Wins Again", "A New Way To Cry", "Misery Mansion", "Let's Pretend", "Why Are You Picking On Me", "Where My House Lives", and "Waiting Time".

Ike & Tina TurnerIke & Tina Turner – The Bolic Studio Sessions ... CD
Sunset Blvd, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $23.99 24.99
A wealth of rare work pulled from the archives of Ike Turner – a mix of studio tracks and live recordings, most of which are issued here for the first time ever – to offer up a much-needed addition to the Ike and Tina catalog of the time! Tina's in the lead on most tracks – burning with the fire that made her such a dynamic force, both in the studio and on stage – and those qualities might even be best heard here on some of the unusual alternate takes on songs that became hits for the pair in other versions – still burning brightly here under Tina's guidance. 2CD set features 36 tracks in all – and titles include "You Took A Trip", "There's Nothing I Wouldn't Do", "I Had A Notion", "Shake", "Trying To Find My Mind", "Gimme Some Lovin", "No More Doggin", "I've Got A Man", "Stormy Weather", "Don't Fight It/Knock On Wood", "Why I Sing The Blues", and "He Belongs To Me" – plus live versions of "Something", "A Fool For You", "Proud Mary", "Honky Tonk Woman", "Come Together", "Feel Good", and "River Deep Mountain High".

✨✧ Joe TurnerBoss Is Back ... CD
Sunset Blvd, Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy 2CD ... $21.99 22.99
A very hip collection of work from the great Joe Turner – material that hasn't been easily issued elsewhere, and which fills in a key chapter of Joe's career! CD1 features vintage material, and is heavy on work from the postwar years, but before Turner rose to a second wave of fame on Atlantic Records – raw tracks recorded for labels that include Freedom and Stag, often with a style that's heavy on the jazzy arrangements that other jump blues artists were using at the time. CD2 features a variety of live recordings – from 1955, 1969, 1971, and 1985 – showing how strongly Turner held onto both his vocal powers over the years, and his ability to command a concert audience. Vintage cuts include "Still In The Dark", "Adam Bit The Apple", "Just A Travelin Man", "Jumpin At The Jubilee", "Around The Clock (part 1)", "Wine O Baby Boogie", "Christmas Date Boogie", and "Baby Won't You Marry Me". Live tracks include "Call The Plumber", "Chicken & The Hawk", "Honey Hush", "Mad Blues", "Chains Of Love", "Cherry Red", "Low Down Dog", and "Flip Flop & Fly". CD

Johnny WinterJohnny Winter – Beginnings 1960 to 1967 ... CD
Sunset Blvd, Mid 60s. Used 2CD ... $11.99
The earliest work of Johnny Winter – and music that's a real revelation if you only know his later hits! Winter is best known as a blues rocker of big fame at Columbia Records, but he worked hard in the southern underground for years before hitting the big time – in a raw mix of blues, soul, and R&B that has all the best rough touches of the swamp scene down in Louisiana! Much of Winter's work from that time was scattered on small indie singles, but almost all of it was sneakily culled together over the years by Huey P Meux – whose less-than-forthright efforts may well be the reason all this music is presented together hear. The 36 track set is a stunner throughout – gritty and powerful, and more soul than rock – and lots of tunes that include versions of songs by Hank Ballard, James Brown, Johnny Wtson, and others – mixed with lots of Johnny Winter originals. Titles include "Voodoo Twist", "Five After Four AM", "Stay By My Side", "Ice Cube", "Geisha Rock", "Out Of Sight", "Bad News", "Hello My Lover", "Tramp", "Parchman Farm", "Leave My Woman Alone", "Crazy Baby", "Eternally", and "Reeling & Rocking".

✨✧ Dr JohnMojo Of Dr John ... CD
Sunset Blvd, Early 60s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A great little collection that definitely gets at the mojo of Dr John – the legendary New Orleans soul singer who really sprang forth in the mainstream at the end of the 60s! Much of this set captures the doctor before that time – early tracks from both New Orleans and LA, all of which echo the vibe of his later productions, but with a style that's maybe more stripped-down and a bit less psychedelic – although there's still a few great trippy touches along the way! CD1 features material recorded both as Dr John, and under his real name of Mac Rebenack – and CD2 features more early rarities, plus some live material too. 31 tracks in all – with titles that include "Feedbag", "Sahara", "Good Times", "The Ear Is On Strike", "Go Ahead On", "Doghouse Blues", "Got Lonesome-itis", "You Said It", "Make Your Own", "Somebody Tryin To Hoodoo Me", "I Pulled The Cover Off You Two Lovers", "Don't Want No Monkey In My Business", and "Bring Your Own Along".

✨✧ Wilbert HarrisonKansas City – The Best Of Wilbert Harrison (3CD set) ... CD
Sunset Blvd, Late 50s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
The biggest collection of work we've ever seen from early southern soul star Wilbert Harrison – a set that goes way past the early hits that usually make up his tiny greatest hits features on the market – to include a whopping 70 titles that takes the Harrison journey all the way through the 60s, up to his rare mid 70s album for the Chelsea Records label! Throughout the set, Harrison's a hell of a singer – a talent who helped first forge the sound of southern soul with his R&B work of the late 50s, then moved into a strong later collaboration with New Orleans production legends Marshall Sehorn and Allen Toussaint – who really helped Wilbert hone his groove! We've honestly not seen much of this material on CD over the years – and the set's overflowing with rare cuts that include "Girls On Parade", "Drafted", "Say It Again", "Broke", "Off To Work Again", "After Graduation", "Get It While You Can", "Sugar Lump", "The Horse", "A Woman Is Trouble", "Your Three Letters", "It's Been A Long Time", "From The Bottom Of My Heart", "My Dream", "Coming Down With Love", "Loving Operator", "I Will Never Trust Another Woman", "Going To The River", "Honest I Do", and lots lots more!

✨✧ Professor LonghairBach Of Rock ... CD
Sunset Blvd, Late 70s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Mighty nice work from the great Professor Longhair – live material recorded in the late 70s, presented here without much in the way of notes – but with a musical quality that more than makes up for that lack of information! The Professor was a key figure in the New Orleans music scene from the postwar years onward – a pianist and singer whose sound really helped pave the way for a new generation of Crescent City soul – and even here, in the late 70s, there's a very timeless, formative sound to his style – a raw groove that really gets to the essence of the sound of Nola, with tight work on piano, and plenty of the Professor's raspy, often witty vocals! Titles include "Bald Head", "Boyd's Bounce", "Big Chief", "Mardi Gras In New Orleans", "Tell Me Pretty Baby", "Mess Around", "I'm Movin On", "Junko Partner", "Her Mind Is Gone", "Rum & Coca Cola", "She Walked Right In", and "Stompin With Fess".
