✨✧ Swing Out SisterBlue Mood, Breakout, & Beyond – The Early Years Part 1 (8CD set) ... CD
Cherry Pop (UK), Late 80s/Early 90s. New Copy 8CD ... Just Sold Out!
A massive overview of work from Swing Out Sister – a group who were a real standout in the UK scene of the late 80s, then just got better and better as the years went on! When they first appeared, Swing Out Sister were a real breath of fresh air – clearly committed to older jazz and soul inspirations, yet able to serve them up with a very contemporary vibe – putting them at a level with a rare few UK acts of the time – like Working Week, Weekend, and even Sade! Lead singer Corinne Drewery has a wonderful range – soulful, but never overdone – and wrapped perfectly around the well-crafted hooks that the group brought to their music right from the start. The other two initial members spent time in A Certain Ratio, where they really crafted their jazz funk skills – which also helped set the group on some really strong instrumental footing, in an era when so many other groups were relying on drum programs and samples. This huge box brings together their initial run of work for Mercury/Fontana – the full albums It's Better To Travel, Kaleidoscope World, and Get In Touch With Yourself – plus the excellent Live At The Jazz Cafe recording – then four more CDs' worth of remixes, edits, and unusual bits from their many 12" singles – long out of print records that often featured some of the most unusual side of the group – a tradition they seemed to inherit from ACR. The box has a massive 95 tracks on 8CDs – and a well-crafted booklet of notes as well! CD

Swing Out SisterIt's Better To Travel ... CD
Mercury, 1987. Used ... $3.99
A surprisingly great guilty pleasure from the 80s – the first album from Swing Out Sister, recorded when all the excitement of the UK post punk scene had just about faded, and most of the groups had left their exciting early roots behind. Enter these guys, picking up the last shreds of jazzy bossa from the generation that included ACR and Weekend – slicking things up a bit with a dose of inspiration from Sade, and coming up with some great tunes like the hit single "Breakout". Other tunes include "Twilight World", "Blue Mood", "After Hours", "Fooled By A Smile", and "It's Not Enough". CD
(Barcode has a cutout hole.)

Swing Out SisterKaleidoscope World (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Phonogram/Fontana (UK), 1989. Used ... $4.99
Standout early work from Swing Out Sister – the group's second album, and one of their best from the time! The team of Andrew Connell and Corinne Drewery had well proven their ability to craft a jazz-tinged tune on the first album – and on this set, they take off in a style that's a bit more classically soulful – working through a good range of influences that infuse their sound with a warm tone that's kept this one close to our hearts over the years. The production is great – quite mature, and with the right orchestral touches to make the tunes work – and titles include "You On My Mind", "Forever Blue", "Tainted", "Heart For Hire", "Precious Words", "Masquerade", and "The Kaleidoscope Affair". CD features bonus instrumental mixes too! CD

Slide HamptonSister Salvation ... LP
Atlantic, 1960. Very Good+ ... $9.99 14.99
One of Slide Hampton's first albums – and a massively hard-wailing set that will make any doubters sit up and take notice! The set really packs a punch – as Slide leads a hip group that features Freddie Hubbard, Richard Williams, Bernard McKinney, and George Coleman through some tightly woven arrangements that manage to swing with the grace of small combo work, yet wail with the intensity of a big band. Great solos pop out all over the set – and there's a soul jazz groove that makes the album sound like a classic Prestige session. Titles include "Asseveration", "Hi Fly", "Sister Salvation", and "A Little Night Music". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono red and purple label pressing with deep groove. Cover has a bit of wear and aging along the opening, but is nice overall.)

Woody HermanWoody Herman 1963 (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Verve, 1963. Used ... $4.99
Despite what you might think about some of Woody's big band contemporaries from the 40s, you've got to admit that Woody himself was always growing and changing as the decades went on – as this 1963 album will attest! Woody's in great form here – still working with a tight group of ensemble players, but also hitting a groovier sound that's more in keeping with the time of the material – pointing the way towards some of his sublime sides of the late 60s and early 70s with a subtle shift from swing to groove. You can hear that especially on some of the original tunes – like "Camel Walk", "Sig Ep", and "Tunin In" – and the album also features nice versions of Horace Silver's "Sister Sadie" and Horace Parlan's "Blues For JP".

Pacific Jazz, 1966. Used ... $4.99
A hard and heavy side from Buddy, and true to his reputation and the title of the LP, he comes out swinging! The set features a top notch mid 60s group, and from the sound of the numbers on this set, ol' Buddy did need to hand out any of his famous lectures on the bus afterwards, with some crisp soloing and great ensemble playing. Includes "Basically Blues", "The Critics Choice", "My Man's Gone Now", "Uptight (Everything's Alright)" and "Sister Sadie". CD

VariousHeading For The Christmas Ball – 31 Swing & R&B Christmas Crooners ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Late 40s/1950s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $10.99 11.99
Sweet cuts for the Christmas season – a great batch of jazz, vocal, and R&B numbers pulled from the postwar years – excellent songs and singles from a time when the best sort of Holiday music was coming out on record, year after year! The set's a great addition to the ever-growing Bear Family Christmas collections – and like the rest, it really shows a strong understanding of what makes a great Christmas tune so great – not just a hit, or a familiar chart number from the past – but new takes on old tunes, or fresh songs that really show just how much Holiday music was flooding the record business back in the day! The package is great, with notes on each track – and titles include "Ole Santa" by Dinah Washington, "Mambo Santa Mambo" by The Enchanters, "I've Had A Very Merry Christmas" by Jerry Lewis, "Happy New Year Baby" by Johnny Otis, "What Are You Doing New Year's Eve" by Ramsey Lewis, "Christmas Ball" by Georgie Auld with Bill Darnel, "Jingle Bells" by Knuckles O'Toole, "Jing A Ling Jing A Ling" by The Andrews Sisters, "Sleigh Ride" by Leroy Anderson, "Come On Santa Let's Have A Ball" by Kay Martin & Her Body Guards, and "Mister Santa" by Dorothy Collins.

Connee BoswellConnee Boswell & The Original Memphis Five In Hi Fi ... LP
RCA, 1957. Near Mint- ... $3.99
Trad swinging from Connee Boswell – working here outside of her famous group with her sisters, and getting some pretty nice small combo backing from the Original Memphis Five! The overall style hearkens back to a jazz mode a few decades before the late 50s date of the set – and the group recreates the mood nicely with clarinet from leader James Lytell, plus trumpet from Billy Butterfield, trombone from Miff Mole, and piano from Frank Signorelli. Titles include "All Of Me", "Singin The Blues", "Pagan Love Song", "When My Sugar Walks Down The Street", "Make Love To Me", and "My Honey's Loving Arms". LP, Vinyl record album

Wayne Cochran & His CC RidersHigh & Ridin ... LP
Bethlehem, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $19.99 28.99
Excellent work from Wayne Cochran – a rare set for Bethlehem Records at the time when it was owned by King – and done in a similar style of heavy soul to his record on Chess! You might not guess it from Wayne's big white pompadour, but he's a hell of a swinger – and the album cooks with the kind of material that made him a huge crowd favorite across the southern scene – an unusual array of cuts that includes "Sister Sadie", "Mo Lasses", "I Was Made To Love Her", "Better Get It In Your Soul", "Critics Choice", and a medley of "Eleanor Rigby/Hey Jude". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Carol AndersonSad Girl – The Legacy Of Detroit's Lost Soul Sister ... CD
Grapevine (UK), 1970s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
The complete recordings of a wonderful soul singer who never fully got her due – Detroit diva Carol Anderson, best known for a few tracks that broke big on the UK Northern scene – but finally presented here with the full scope of her work in one set! Carol had a great approach that was very much in keeping with changes in the Detroit sound of the 70s – vocals that often shared a sense of personal, heartfelt delivery with southern soul of the period – but a tighter, more swinging approach to instrumentation that was still keeping up the Detroit groove of earlier years. The tunes here nicely skirt a distance between Memphis and Motortown – delivered with a rich, expansive heart that should have made Carol a bigger singer than she was a the time. A few of the tracks on the set are nice dancefloor groovers – both in an older style of Northern soul, and in a late 70s/early 80s boogie-styled groove – and as usual, the folks at Grapevine have done a tremendous job with the notes! CD features every single track ever recorded by Carol – 17 titles that include "Sad Girl", "You Boy", "We've Got Enough", "You've Got It Coming", "Party People", "Holding On", "Taking My Mind Off Love", "You Want It", "Ain't Giving Up", "Tomorrow Is Not A Promise", "Come On Over Tonight", and "Master Plan".

Barry SistersSide By Side (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Roulette (Japan), 1960. Used ... $19.99 24.99
The Barry Sisters at their swinging best – a hip female duo who really know how to make familiar tunes groove nicely with the sort of dynamic energy we'd normally reserve for male vocal quartets! Arrangements are by Richard Wess and Stan Applebaum – both of whom bring a cool sort of energy to the set – swinging things with a really playful feel on the upbeat numbers, and still keeping a great sense of sound on the mellower numbers – which manage to come off quite differently than other takes on the tunes. Titles include "Around The World", "Who's Sorry Now"," Ciao Ciao Bambina", "Autumn Leaves", "Fascination", and "It's Alright With Me". CD

Pointer SistersPointer Sisters/That's A Plenty ... CD
Blue Thumb/BGO (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $8.99 19.99
Two early albums from this legendary group – back to back in a single set! First up is the self-titled Pointer Sisters – the group's debut, and an album that's a lot deeper than most of their crossover pop from years to come! At the time of the album's release, the trio were a badass group of female singers on the Bay Area scene – out to redefine the role of the girl group in soul – working not only with righteous power that was a real change from modes of the 60s – but also this trans-temporal quality that had them reaching back with ease for references from decades past, which also includes a surprising amount of jazz! The highlight here is the group's classic funky break version of Allen Toussaint's "Yes We Can Can" – and other titles include "Naked Food", "Wang Dang Doodle", "Sugar", "Pains & Tears", "Jada", "River Boulevard", and "Cloudburst". That's A Plenty is a wonderfully retro-styled set from the Pointer Sisters – one that has the group singing in a variety of older jazz modes, but which also mixes in a nice dose of heavy funk as well! The format's an odd one, but very typical of the group's genre-blending style – of the sort that first got them noticed strongly in the early 70s, then helped them bridge out to a wide variety of audiences later in the decade. Styles include bop, swing, and even a bit of trad jazz – plus some bluesier funk on the best numbers – and the album features an incredible 8 minute version of "Love In Them There Hills", done in a sweet 70s electric style! Other tracks include "Grinning In Your Face", "Little Pony", "Fairytale", "Black Coffee", "Shaky Flat Blues", and "That's A Plenty/Surfeit USA". CD

✨✧ VariousWheedle's Groove – Seattle's Finest In Funk & Soul 1965-75 ... CD
Light In The Attic, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Funk from Seattle? Hardly seems likely – but prepare to be amazed! The funky reissuers at Light In The Attic, in collaboration with Mr Supreme, have unearthed a treasure trove of rare singles and groovers for the set – all obscure local recordings from the Emerald City scene, most of which never made it past the Pacific Northwest to the national charts. Back in the day, Seattle was a real cross-cultural hotbed – filled with folks who'd picked up and moved out from points east, settling in the Central District, working for Boeing, and reveling in the freedom of the new city to find their own groove. This set does a great job of documenting the flowering of eastern-styled funk in Seattle's growing scene of the late 60s – and features a range of tracks that run from deep funk to hard soul, sock-boogaloo, and even a bit of hard-handed piano jazz! The package features a great set of notes on the music, and a long set list that includes "Louie Louie" by The Topics, "Brighter Tomorrow" by Soul Swingers, "This Is Me" by Cookin Bag, "Bold Soul Sister Bold Soul Brother" by Black On White Affair, "Cissy Strut" by Johnny Lewis Trio, "Stop Losing Your Chances" by Cold Bold & Together, "I Just Want To Be" by Robbie Hill, "Wheedle's Groove" by Annakonda, "Hey Jude" by Overton Berry Trio, and "A Little Love Affair" by Patrinell Staten.
