BloodstoneParty ... CD
T Neck/FTG, 1984. Used ... $6.99
One of Bloodstone's great groovers from later years – work that has a very different feel than the group's fragile harmony soul of the 70s, and which has them taking off into a much more confident sound! Production is by McKinley Jackson, and the album's a mix of a few funky 80s groove numbers with some even better mellower tracks – tunes that glide along in a rich production mode, and showcase the maturing vocals of the group wonderfully. Titles include the sweet stepper "Instant Love", a really great spacey soul track – plus "It Feels So Good", "Why Be The First One Home", "Contagious", "Feel The Heat", and "Bloodstone's Party". CD

Isley Brothers3 + 3 (plus bonus track) ... CD
T Neck/Legacy, 1973. New Copy ... $4.99 6.99
An amazing little album from the Isley Brothers – one in which the group manage to explore their growing love of the electric guitar, yet somehow sound even more soulful than before! The music is slinky and seductive, with a wonderful style that's never too overly funky – just laidback and flowing, with a vibe that's sometimes mellow, sometimes a bit more upbeat – but never too over the top or rocking. Titles include the group's the monster cut "That Lady" (parts 1 & 2) – a totally righteous groover, even if it has been in a million commercials over the years – and their cover of Seals & Croft's epic "Summer Breeze", which is ten times doper than the original! Other tracks include "Listen To The Music", "If You Were There", "What It Comes Down To", and "Sunshine (Go Away Today)". CD includes bonus live version of "That Lady". CD

A funky album – but one that we love best for the mellow tracks! Sure, the Isleys could wear flashy suits and play some heavy guitar – but honestly, what we really love them for here are the laidback, loving tunes they do so well. The album includes 2 of their greatest ballad tracks ever – "Voyage To Atlantis" and "Footsteps In The Dark" – plus the midtempo tune "Tell Me When You Need It Again", another great track that almost has the same power as the other two.

Great work from The Isley Brothers – proof that they were still growing strongly as a group into the 80s! The Isleys are smoothing it out nicely here – going for that lean, compressed style that they used on more than a few nice records at the time. Tracks have a tight modern soul approach – vocals, guitars, and keyboards all fused into one sweet snakey line that sounds better and better with each listen! Titles include "I Once Had Your Love", "Hurry Up And Wait", "Tonight Is The Night", "Young Girls", and "Who Said". LP, Vinyl record album

T Neck, 1975. Very Good- Gatefold ... $4.99
A great mix of heavy funk and sweeter ballads from the Isley Brothers – and a record that's filled with two-part tracks that really let them stretch out and groove! The tunes have a bit more bass and keyboards than before – an approach that's even more electric than Isley funk of a few years back, and which steps out in some tightly vamping rhythms that still crackle with plenty of warmth and soul – especially on the mellower numbers, which dominate side two of the record, and really make this one worth having! Mellow tracks include "For The Love Of You (parts 1 & 2)", "Sensuality (parts 1 & 2)", and "Make Me Say It Again (parts 1 & 2)" – and funkier numbers include "Fight The Power (parts 1 & 2)", "The Heat Is On (parts 1 & 2)", and "Hope You Feel Better Love (parts 1 & 2)".

T Neck, 1971. Very Good Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A very weird, but very beautiful album by the Isleys – one in which they move into a folksy rock groove, and play acoustic guitars in long spiralling soulful versions of some of their favorite rock hits! The sound's a bit like Terry Callier or Bill Withers, but it's also still got that sexy Isley groove to it – and although the cuts aren't all out funky, there's definitely a lot of funk in the way that they're set up! We love the complexity of the Isleys at this point – really willing to take a chance like this, with results that come out beautifully. Titles include a great version of "Love The One You're With", plus "Machine Gun", "Ohio", "Spill The Wine", and "Lay Lady Lay". LP, Vinyl record album

T Neck, 1976. Very Good- Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Fantastic Isleys from the mid-70s! The record has the group dropping their heavy funk style (which was sounding a bit tired by this point), and picking up a strident soul groove that buoyed their tracks with a spiritual sound that reminds us of some of the best moments from the Brother Brother Brother album! This one includes the incredible song "Harvest For The World", one of the most anthemic soul songs of the 70s – and a monster groover that mixes message-driven vocals with some tight guitar work. Other tracks include "You Still Feel the Need", "Let Me Down Easy", and "People of Today" – and the whole album's one of the group's best from the 70s! LP, Vinyl record album

Funky dancefloor material from the Isleys – pretty guitar-heavy, and not really their best moment, as the soul quotient's a bit low, and they're kind of lost in the grooves. "I Wanna Be" is served up in a disco version, which is really just an extended funker. 12-inch, Vinyl record

T Neck, 1980. Very Good- Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
It's the end of the 70s, and the Isleys are still going strong – keeping it real by dropping some of the fake funk of a few years before, and going for a smooth soul sound that would be one of their biggest strengths during the early 80s. This sound can be heard to perfection on the tracks "Say You Will" and "Here We Go Again", both wonderful numbers that have this strident groove that's part "Harvest For The World", part compressed guitars and keyboards working in a smooth wall of sound. Those two alone are more than worth the price of the record, and other titles include "Pass It On", "Go All The Way", and "The Belly Dancer" – all done in the Isleys' trademarked "part 1 & 2" style!

The Isley Brothers in prime 70s mode here – hitting a warm and wonderful blend of soul and funk throughout – always delivered with that sweet talent for smooth understatement that makes them so great! The costumes on the front cover may be freaky, but the grooves are nicely restrained – and by this point in the decade, the brothers have definitely learned that their strongest suit is often their mellow one – tracks that groove, but often in more subtle ways! Titles include the massive slow jam track "Groove With You", plus "Take Me To The Next Phase (parts 1 & 2)", "Love Fever (parts 1 & 2)", "Fun & Games", "Ain't Givin Up No Love", and "Coolin Me Out (parts 1 & 2)".

T Neck, 1983. Used ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful album from the Isley Brothers – and a real departure from their funkier sound of the 70s! The album has the group operating in a wonderful smooth soul mode – just what you'd expect from the "between the sheets" in the title, and the silky bedclothes on the cover! The centerpiece of the album is the loving title cut – a wonderfully catchy number that works well not only as a stepper's dancefloor tune, but also as a hip hop sample track (used most famously in Tribe Called Quest's "Bonita Applebum".) The whole thing's great, though – and other tracks include "Choosey Lover", "Touch Me", "Slow Down Children" and "Getting' Over". CD

VariousLefto Presents Jazz Cats ... CD
Sdban (Belgium), 2018. Used ... $6.99
The jazz cats here are all pretty contemporary – younger musicians and combos on the current scene in Belgium – which turns out to have a fantastic array of really fresh sounds! Some groups play straight, some maybe use a bit more electronics – others are more acoustic than electric – and together, the tracks present an amazing underground that we'd never have heard otherwise – a really rich tapestry of talents who clearly draw keen inspiration from the 70s, but also really point the way forward – maybe with some of the post-jazz styles of music that we've been exposed to by Gilles Peterson over the years! Hats off to Lefto for doing such a great job of bringing these talents to light – in a set that includes "Steak In The Neck" by Madame Blavatsky, "Bombarda" by Combro Oro", "Introducing (part 3)" by Commander Spoon, "Lindbergh" by Schntzl, "De Vlijtige Kip" by Brzzvll, "Elevator" by LABtrio, "Takeoff" by Collective Conscience, "Hiza Hiza Hey" by Pudding Oo, "Hikari Park" by Mazzle, and "Oude Beren" by De Beren Gieren.

Some of the rumbling bass of before has been toned down a bit, but that leaves plenty of space for more jamming guitar work from Ritchie Blackmore – as well as more soaring Hammond lines, and vocals that almost hint at soulful influences from time to time. The record's got a slightly heartfelt quality that's almost a surprise – and titles include covers of "Kentucky Woman", "We Can Work It Out", and "River Deep Mountain High" – plus the originals "Wring That Neck", "Listen Learn Read On", and "The Shield".

Starday/Gusto, Early 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Joe Maphis was definitely the king of the strings back in the day – a guitarist who was so tight, he had to play a double-necked electric just to give his fingers enough to do – something that wouldn't come into vogue much later, until the 70s arena rock guitarists started to showcase the instrument! Yet Joe was never as overstated as those guys – because while deft, he's also strongly focused on melody and timing – never needing to show off too much, but still really blowing us away with his playing on a record like this – an amazing showcase to his straight-ahead skills on the guitar, as he works here on an early Mosrite model, designed by Joe himself. Titles include "Hot Rod Guitar", "Double Neck Boogie", "Coffee Break", "Scalping The Indians", "Fiddlin On The Guitar", and "A Little Bit Of Travis". CD

✨✧ Archie Shepp5 Original Albums (Four For Trane/On This Night/Fire Music/Mama Too Tight/Way Ahead) (5CD set) ... CD
Impulse/Universal, Late 60s. Used 5 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Groundbreaking work from Archie Shepp – 5 albums that helped define the Impulse Records sound of the 60s! First up is Four For Trane – an amazing Impulse debut from Archie Shepp – easily one of his boldest musical statements ever, and a key announcement to the world that a new generation of modernists was on the rise! The album was co-produced by John Coltrane – who brought Shepp to the label, and almost gets out-done by Archie's sharply crafted musical vision on the set. The style here is that mix of freer lines and tighter conception that Shepp used with the New York Contemporary Five – and players include John Tchicai on alto from that group, plus Roswell Rudd on trombone, Alan Shorter on flugelhorn, Reggie Workman on bass, and Charles Moffett on drums. The lack of piano in the album is striking – and allows for plenty of horn interplay, but in a way that's much more cutting and dark than any of the piano-less horn dates from the 50s. Titles include 4 Coltrane compositions ("Syeeda's Song Flute", "Mr Syms", "Cousin Mary", and "Naima"), as sort of a tribute to Trane – plus Shepp's excellent "Rufus (Swung, his face at last to the wind, then his neck snapped)". On This Night is one of his most successful blends of the disparate influences that comprised his style. The group is a bit smaller than usual – which gives good focus to players like Bobby Hutcherson, Henry Grimes, and Joe Chambers. Shepp contributed some of his most haunting compositions to the set – including "On This Night", "The Mac Man", and "The Pickaninny" – and the whole thing's amazing enough to make you a Shepp convert for life. Whenever we get bogged down in some of his later recordings, we only need put this one on and feel refreshed! Fire Music is fantastic stuff – easily one of Archie Shepp's greatest albums, and certainly one of the pivotal points of 60s avant garde jazz! The album features Shepp leading a crack "new thing" line up that includes Ted Curson on trumpet, Marion Brown on alto, Joe Chambers on drums, Reggie Johnson on bass, and the lesser-known Joseph Orange on trombone – all playing in a beautifully poised manner, never too far out and free, but with all the dynamic energy of the best jazz changes of the 60s! There's a vibe here that's similar to some of the Blue Note "new thing" work by players like Grachan Moncur, Jackie McLean, and Tony Williams from the time – but there's a vision that's also wider and deeper, too, given the size of the group and the way they interact. Titles include "Hambone", "Los Olvidados", "Malcolm Malcolm–Semper Malcolm", and an insane cover of "Girl From Ipanema". You can't go wrong with this one – trust us! Mama Too Tight is growing brilliance from the young Archie Shepp – a record that's not just about Archie's own amazing work on the tenor, but also his keen modern vision as a leader! The combo here is an ensemble that features some of the hippest modernists of the 60s – Roswell Rudd and Grachan Moncur on trombone, Perry Robinson on clarinet, Howard Johnson on tuba, Charlie Haden on bass, and Tommy Turrentine on trumpet – making a rare non-bop appearance here, and further enforcing our already-high estimation of his talents! The style's somewhat in the "new thing" mode of the period, but it's also a bit more tightly arranged too – almost hitting Mingus-like modes for the bigger ensemble – balancing the force of the group together with very free, bold solo impulses from the players. Side one features the extended "Portrait Of Robert Thompson (As A Young Man)" – and side two features "Mama Too Tight", "Theme For Ernie", and "Basheer". Way Ahead Is definitely the way ahead in jazz – back in the 60s, and well into the 21st Century too! Archie Shepp's in prime form here – working with a sextet that's awash in avant freedoms, but which always shows a great sense of restraint – just the right power gained from the new modes of jazz expression, as the players dance together beautifully on a razor's edge of personal creativity and ensemble exploration. Players here include Grachan Moncur on trombone, Jimmy Owens on trumpet, Ron Carter on bass, and Beaver Harris and Roy Haynes on drums – and the album also features the first piano player on most of the Shepp albums on Impulse – Walter Davis Jr, making a rare outside appearance with the group! Titles include the classic track "Frankenstein", plus "Fiesta", "Damn If I Know (The Stroller)", and "Sophisticated Lady" – all nice and long! CD

A millennial classic from Erykah Badu – a record that came along right as the current century was starting up, to show a soulful path that would keep things strong for many years to come! The album grabbed a bigger audience than Erykah's first, but still kept things strong – really focusing in on that amazing vocal style that made the singer such a unique talent – and which always had edges that were sharper, and runs that were deeper, than some of her contemporaries who might be able to trick a phrase with a bit of spirit, but never deliver the whole thing in the way that Badu can! Themes are both personal and hinting at her political turns to come – and titles include "Kiss Me On My Neck", "Didn't Cha Know", "My Life", "AD 2000", "Bag Lady", "In Love With You", and "Booty".

Columbia/Bear Family (Germany), 1976/1977. New Copy ... $13.99 24.99
Two fantastic albums from the legendary David Allen Coe – back to back on a single CD! First up is Long Haired Redneck – one of the greatest albums ever from one of the greatest talents in 70s country music – and the kind of set that really helped the great David Allen Coe find his voice! The set says it all with the leadoff title track – the completely wonderful "Long Haired Redneck", which marked Coe as one of the smartest singers to ever sing about country music – as well as sing the music itself – and it's blended here with straighter songs that show a surprisingly heartfelt side of the artist, plus a few others that really have a great commentary on the 70s country scene. Titles include "Texas Lullaby", "Rock & Roll Holiday", "When She's Got Me", "Living On The Run", "Revenge", "Free Born Rambling Man", "Spotlight", and the completely bizarre "Dakota The Dancing Bear (part 2)". Rides Again is a record that was billed as a recurrence of Coe's earlier personal – as The Mysterious Rhinestone Cowboy Rides Again – but instead, it continues that run of super-smart songcraft that made David Allen one of the most important forces transforming the world of country music in the 70s – maybe, to us, even more important than Waylon or Willie! Coe's definitely more rough around the edges, but that's what makes these songs great – as the man unabashedly puts his ideas and his humor out there, on titles that include the seminal "Willie Waylon & Me", "Young Dallas Cowboy", "The House We've Been Calling Home", "Laid Back & Wasted", "Under Rachel's Wings", "Greener Than The Grass We Laid On", and the fantastic "If That Ain't Country" – a bit offensive, but still one of the greatest country music anthems of all time.

Du-RitesSound Check At 6 ... LP
Redefinition, 2019. New Copy ... $26.99 28.98
Way more than just a sound check, as the Du-Rites play here live – at an undisclosed location in Brooklyn – in a set that's still got some vocals from J-Zone and Pablo Martin, but which also really seems to showcase the full funky action of the group as a quartet – with lots of heavy riffing on guitar and keyboards! The sound is maybe an imagined East LA take on the sound of The Meters – with all the chunky rhythms and bold instrumental elements of that New Orleans group, but some unusual production edges and slightly more exotic phrasing that really seems to move the groove. Titles include "Gamma Ray Funk", "The Man With The Golden Tooth", "Mr Porter", "Bug Juice", "The Chief & I", "Neckbones", "Pookie's Dead", and "Amsterdam Ave Suite". LP, Vinyl record album

Coke EscovedoComin' At Ya! ... CD
Mercury (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $13.99
Pure brilliance from Coke Escovedo – an artist who really finds a way to make so many different things come together perfectly – with results that are even stronger than his previous work in Azteca and Santana! The set's got a warm blend of Latin roots, modern soul, and jazzy fusion – all produced by the great Pat Gleeson with the same sort of genre-bending care he brought to his own work as a musician! Gleeson makes things smooth and spacey, but never slick – really layering the sound at a level that's somewhere in the Mizell family territory, but with a bit of a different vibe. Coke's percussion is wonderful – and the set features vocals from Errol Knowles, plus backing from The Waters, and guest instrumentation from both Joe Henderson on tenor and Gabor Szabo on guitar. The whole thing's great, and titles include the sublime groover "I Wouldn't Change A Thing", a sweet remake of Willie Bobo's "Fried Neckbones & Some Home Fries", and the tracks "Back Seat", "Runaway", "Hangin On", "Somebody's Callin", and "Diamond Dust/Vida".

✨✧ 4th ComingStrange Things – The Complete Works 1970 to 1974 ... CD
Now Again, Early 70s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A stunning batch of tracks from a very unusual LA group of the early 70s – a funk combo at the core, but one that was also equally comfortable with bits of psych and redneck rock as well! The music here was all recorded within a short span of years, and mostly issued on the small Alpha label as a handful of funky 45s – but the style is surprisingly spacious, and shows a strong sense of musicianship from the members of the group – so much so that they seem equally comfortable and right on top of their game, no matter what direction they choose to take! And don't think that this multi-style description means that these guys are too all over the map, because there's a really unified sense of soul that holds the whole thing together – so that when they get a bit rootsy, the result is country soul – or when they get a bit trippy, they hit some Funkadelic-styled sounds. The collection includes great notes on the setting that produced these tracks – penned by Egon, who put the set together with help from Malcolm Catto, DJ Shadow, and others. Titles include "Don't Let Him Take Away Your Mind", "Strange Things", "Heaven & Earth", "Take Time", "We Got Love", "Waterloo At Watergate", "Why Don't You Trust In Me", "Cruising Central Ave", "The Dead Don't Die Alive", and "You're My Precious Someone".

Dirk HamiltonYou Can Sing On The Left Or Bark On The Right ... LP
ABC, 1976. Sealed Gatefold ... $11.99
A record with a gimmicky title and cover, but a real overlooked gem from mid 70s ABC Records – handled with sublime care in the studio from producer Gary Katz, engineer Roger Nichols, and a host of session players who worked on some of the Steely Dan records of the time! Yet Dirk Hamilton's approach here is quite different than some of the smoother projects of the period – as the singer's got a nice sort of rasp to his style that would have been right at home in a redneck rock mode, but which really sounds even better, and a lot more unique here – alongside these perfect instrumental flourishes that underscore his vocals in just the right way – never overwhelming them, but giving them the sort of direction that really knocks the record out of the park. All tunes are originals, and really beautifully penned in this sophisticated, post-Dylan mode – on titles that include "She Don't Squash Bugs", "Little Big Time Man", "Wasn't That One Night Good", "The Sweet Forever", "Waterfall", and "When She Kiss Ya Like She Love".

A seminal early set on the Okka Disk label – the important Chicago avant imprint who began documenting an important stretch of the career of Joe McPhee – much as the Hat Hut label had begun 20 years before! The set features performances recorded during McPhee's first appearance in Chicago during the mid 90s – the start of a beautiful relationship that would continue for decades to come – and McPhee blows both reeds and trumpet, in a trio with Ken Vandermark on saxes and Kent Kessler on bass – all working together in a very open studio format that has the players shifting between trio work, to solo and duo performances too. The recording is crucial – as McPhee's sensitivity brings out a whole new side of both Chicago players – on titles that include "Heart Of The Matter", "A Meeting In Chicago", "Breakneck Ridge", "Lalibela", "Empty Bottle Blues", "Fourteen Years Later", and "I Leave You Love".

This is a band that was just about the least predictable group to appear on a major label during the early 90s "alternative" feeding frenzy – certainly one of those great bands whose influence and impact extends far beyond however many records they sold at the time. Deserter's Songs has textures picked up from classic ornate pop, waltzy numbers and dreamy atmosphere to spare– paired with off kilter vocals and a freewheeling, creative sensibility. A classic!

The production's pretty straight, but the group's playing in a cool open-ended style that still has elements of their earlier work, but which really makes things a lot more interesting than some of the Atlantic recordings. Milt Jackson's vibes have a bit more of a bell-like quality on some parts, and the rhythm team of Percy Heath and Connie Kay kick it with a soul jazz vibe on a few numbers – a nice change from the sleepier rhythms of earlier albums.

Brit James Taylor is a master of the keys – expanding his sound over the years from funky Jimmy Smith/Jimmy McGriff type grooves, into a mode that ecompassed a lot of the changes in sounds that took place during the 70s. This excellent set gives you a great look at the rich range of Taylor's talents – and includes tracks that were on some of his albums for the Acid Jazz label, plus rarer bits from singles that are long out of print. Tracks include "Europa", "3 Mile Island", "Green Onions", "Mrs Robinson", "Redneck", "Black Gun (live)", "Untitled part 2", "Fourth Dimension", "Journey", "Love The Life (live)", "It's Your World", "Good Thing", "Summer Fantasy", "Starting Too Slow (live)", "The Stooge", and "Hatiain Breakdown/Starsky & Hutch".

A double-header from Bukka White – a set that features his 1963 album for Takoma Records, plus a rare German concert from the 70s! CD1 features the record Mississippi Blues – gruff and deep down beautiful Mississippi Blues from Bukka White – released on John Fahey's Takoma label at the end of the 60s and featuring rawly rollicking, shaky voice intensity and that heat producing bottleneck guitar! It's wonderful stuff, certainly a high water mark for the late 60s records to appear after the folk revival. Includes "Aberdeen Mississippi Blues", "Baby Please Don't Go", "Parchment Farm Blues", "Poor Boy Long Ways From Home", "Drunk Man Blues" (on piano), "Army Blues" and more. This CD edition includes 3 bonus tracks recorded in 1964 and released by Takoma on other records: "World Boogie", "Midnight Blue" and "Old Man Walking Blues". CD2 features a great live set, recorded in Bremen, Germany just two years before Bukka White passed on – but done in a raw, gritty style that still has the singer very much at the top of his game! Instrumentation is just White's rough rhythms on guitar – and the show features 11 titles that include "Aberdeen Blues", "Black Rat", "Way Out In The West", "Big Boat Up The River", "Stuttart Arkansas", "Mama Don't Allow", and "Poor Boy Long Way From Home".

The tunes definitely live up to the promise of the cover – and Johnny's look on the cover – with a mix of classic themes and biting commentary on the life of the working man, of the sort that made Cash a huge influence on generations to come.

Takoma/4 Men With Beards, 1968. New Copy Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A tremendous early statement from the great guitarist John Fahey – and a record that has all his best ideas coming into really sharp focus! Fahey was a very collaborative person right from the start – even as a record collector, before his own recordings – and that spirit is felt here on some of the duet tracks, in which John and associates perform these acoustic instrumental tunes that plumb the past of underground America, but turn it out again into something completely new and fresh – not folk revial, but more a reworked fantasy of the nation, almost as a refuge for the changes of the late 60s. The sound is beautiful – with a flute accompaniment here, a bit of fiddle there, and even Fahey duetting with himself on guitar – thanks to the magic of overdub. As usual with these early Takoma records, the style is very fluid – sometimes very tied to the 78rpm generation, but other points much more towards the freewheeling guitar introspection of some of Fahey's underground contemporaries. The overall sound is amazing, too – as Fahey almost uses the studio as an additional instrument, but in very subtle ways. Titles include "Bottleneck Blues", "Bill Cheatum", "Lewisdale Blues", "Bean Vine Blues", "A Raga Called Pat (part 3)", "A Raga Called Pat Part IV", "Train", "Je Ne Me Suis Reveillais Matin Pas En May", "The Story Of Dorothy Gooch (part 1)", "Nine Pound Hammer", and "Lonesome Valley".

Ubiquity, 1990s/Early 2000s. Near Mint- 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A massive look at the music of Greyboy – one that features classic cuts, previously unreleased tracks, and rare mixes as well! Back in the early 90s, when most of the few funky records coming out of the west coast were pretty darn weak, Greyboy really caught our ears with his raw, stripped-down approach to a groove – a sound that was influenced by 70s funky jazzy, but also done with some harder, heavier beats as well – really the first great American contribution to the sound that bubbled out from the London acid jazz scene – yet done with a much harder edge than most of its overseas progenitors! This package is a great reminder of why we first fell in love with Greyboy's music all those years back – and it's filled with loads of funky cuts from years back, plus some recent mixes and singles that really help expand the collection. Titles include "Unwind Your Mind", "Whirlwind", "Mastered The Art (Nicola Conte Jet Sounds rmx)", "Ruffneck Jazz", "Hold Your Weight", "Hold It Down (Greyboy rmx)", "Genevieve", "To Know You Is To Love You", "Love", "Color In Between The Lines"," Missin Something", "Got To Be A Love", "Grey's Groove", and "Panacea".

The sound here is really tremendous – boldly leaping forth from the keys with a strength that's really surprising – but still sensitive enough to slide in a few more contemplative notes when the moment calls – sometimes while Newborn is still racing down the keys at breakneck speed!

Maybe not a "world" of piano, but a real classic from Phineas Newborn – a record that marks a harder, more soulful sound than some of his 50s work – shaking free from some of his flowery touches on the keys, and digging much deeper into the groove of his Memphis roots! The sound here is really tremendous – boldly leaping forth from the keys with a strength that's really surprising – but still sensitive enough to slide in a few more contemplative notes when the moment calls – sometimes while Newborn is still racing down the keys at breakneck speed! Rhythm on both sides is great – with Paul Chambers & Philly Joe Jones on side one, and Sam Jones and Louis Hayes on side two – and titles include "Cheryl", "Manteca", "Oleo", "Dahoud", "Cabu", and "For Carl". CD
(Out of print early Japanese pressing.)

Randy NewmanGood Old Boys ... LP
Reprise, 1974. Near Mint- ... $5.99
A gem of an album from Randy Newman – a masterpiece of understated with from the mid 70s, and one of his most fully-conceived records for Warner Brothers! The album offers up a vision of the south, past and present, through Newman's eyes – eyes that are partially clouded by the distance of the scene seen from the vantage point of smoggy LA, but which still manage to pull out various strands of life with surprising poignancy. It's easy to write this one off as some sort of slap against the face of the backward south in the 70s, but Newman actually approaches his subjects with some sort of subtle tenderness – not nearly as mean as you might think on first listen, as evidenced by the beautiful orchestrations he penned for the sessions. Titles include "Birmingham", "Marie", "Rednecks", "Louisiana 1927", "Rollin", "Back On My Feet Again", and "Wedding In Cherokee County". LP, Vinyl record album
(Later Warner Communications pressing. Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ KarmaKarma (180 gram pressing) ... LP
RCA/Polysom (Brazil), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An obscure bit of Brazilian folk rock from the early 70s – recorded with an easygoing, laidback style that's really wonderful! The group's working mostly here in a blend of acoustic guitar and percussion – and some of the guitar work is done by Jorge Amiden of O Terco, using a strange three-necked guitar that looks mighty weird in the picture! This instrument seems to be played using a bow at times – creating a "guitar strings" sort of feel that gives the record a bit more class than you might expect from its relatively rootsy setting – and there's also some great subtle production on the vocals that compresses them slightly, in a way that links the record to some of the other South American rock of the time. Titles include "O Jogo", "Tributo Ao Sorriso", "Blusa Le Linho", "Voce Pole Ir Alem", "Do Zepo Adiante", "Transe Uma", "Cara Ou Coroa", and "Venha Pisar Na Grama". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ BeckOdelay ... LP
Interscope, 1996. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The incredible second major label album from Beck – and if there was any lingering suspicion that Mellow Gold was just a "Loser" fueled one hit wonder, Odelay absolutely smashed it away on this one and laid the foundation for a lasting legacy. Perhaps the apex of Dust Brothers production, too! A timeless, career-defining classic. Includes "Devil's Haircut", "Jack-Ass", "Derelict", "Novacane", "The New Pollution", "Ramshackle", "Readymade", "Sissyneck", "Where It's At" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
