TaxiBlue Zero One ... CD
Infracom (Germany), 2001. Used ... $0.99
Warm keyboards, and a nice touch of classic house! There's some great spacey keys over the top of most of the album – with spare, soulful beats underneath, almost in a mid 80s Chicago mode, but with nicer and slower, beats and a more spacious sound overall. A number of tracks have female vocals bubbling along in the mix – and tracks include "No Way Talk", "Yes It's True", "Devil", "An Other Day", "Lovefool", "Black & Blue", "I Just Can't Win", and "An Other Day".

✨✧ Ray Camacho & The TeardropsBest Of Ray Camacho & The Tear Drops – Chicano Salsa, Funk, Cumbia & Soul 1968 to 1971 ... CD
Freestyle (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Heavy funk from Ray Camacho & The Teardrops – a Latin Cali combo from the end of the 60s, but one with a groove that's often more like indie funk from the other side of the country! There's definitely a few Latin elements at play here, but the real strength of the group is the way they hit hard on the rhythms – kicking things up with massive drums and basslines, then only throwing in Latin percussion for an extra punch! Some cuts have the vocals in the lead – grooving with a Chicano soul sort of style – but the instrumental energy is the main appeal here, as Ray and the group blast things away with the energy of a jukebox filled with funky 45s – massively soulful stuff throughout, a much-needed look at their work. Titles include "Let's Boogie", "Chevere", "Saigon Taxi", "Dulce Y Amarga", "Caballo Negro", "Mama Guela", "Tomas Al Timbal", "Wade In The Water", "Si Si Puede", "She's So Good To Me", "Tough Talk", and "Tus Modos".

Bob JamesTouchdown ... LP
Tappan Zee/Columbia, 1978. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $5.99
Sweet electric keys from the great Bob James – a record that's a bit smoother than some of his first few classics for CTI, but still plenty darn nice! The set's got Bob working with a range of key fusion and studio players who include Steve Gadd, Earl Klugh, Eric Gale, Hubert Laws, Mongo Santamaria, and Idris Muhammad – all coming together into the compressed 70s Bob James approach to funky jazz – a sound that's possibly best summed up in the album's extended take on "Angela" (also known as "Theme To Taxi"), done here with a slightly funky undercurrent that's totally great. Other tracks are a bit brighter and warmer – but still wonderfully soulful – and James has a way of hitting the keys on the Fender Rhodes that makes them "plunk" with this sweet sweet tone that's unlike anybody else on the instrument! Titles include "Sun Runner", "Angela (Theme From Taxi)", "Touchdown", "I Want To Thank You", and "Caribbean Nights". LP, Vinyl record album

SelectionSelection (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Full Time/PTG (Netherlands), 1982. Used ... $13.99
Killer 80s grooves – served up here by the studio team of Claudio and Franco Donato – also known for their work at the time with Kano, Orlando Johnson, and Firefly! Like some of the best Italian work of the time, the style here is very much in the best sound of the American scene – lots of keyboards and basslines dominating the grooves, and plenty of English-language lyrics that are served up beautifully by lead singer Van Earl Patterson! There's plenty of clubby elements on the record, but the overall sound is still very much in a funky soul mode – rather than a disco one. Titles include "Desire", "Ride The Beam", "Spirit At The End", "On The Ground", "Live For Love", "Taxi", and "Rebel On The Run". CD also features 5 bonus remixes of tracks on the album! CD

TreniersRockin' Is Our Bizness ... LP
Okeh/Edsel (UK), Mid 50s. Near Mint- ... $3.99
Hard-wailing R&B material from one of the greatest groups on the Chicago scene – a collection of 50s Okeh recordings by the legendary Treniers! In later days, the group morphed into more of a rocking supper club act – but in these early years, they had a style that was rough, raunchy, and an instant party – often filled with references to the kinds of things other groups couldn't get past the censors – in a style that was always plenty darn lively! Titles include "Taxi Blues", "Poon Tang", "Bald Head", "Trapped In A Web Of Love", "Hadacole That's All", and "Hi Yo Silver". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousMarvellous Boy – Calypso From West Africa ... LP
Honest Jons, Late 40s/1950s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99
An incredible collection from Honest Jons – and like some of the rest of their best, music we never would have heard otherwise! The focus here is on calypso music, but recorded in West Africa – not the usual Caribbean setting – a very unusual strain of styles that cropped up in the fading colonial years of the British Empire – as rhythms were routed southward to Africa, via Caribbean migration to the London scene – making for some really fresh sounds in the end! The work is often much heavier on percussion than its more familiar variant – and other instrumentation includes some great horn parts, and bits of guitar – alongside vocals on most numbers. As usual, the notes are historically helpful and very well done – and titles include "Scrubbs Na Marvellous Boy" and "Poor Freetown Boy" by Famous Scrubbs, "Olubunmi" by Roy Chicago, "Ariwo" by Chris Ajilo & His Cubanos, "Taxi Driver" and "Gentlemen Bobby" by Bobby Benson & His Combo, "Mami" by The Rhythm Aces, "Arria Baby" and "Fire Fire Fire" by Ebenezer Calender & His Maringer Band, "Tree & The Monkey" by ET Mensah, and "Yabomisa Sawale" by Victor Olaiya.

✨✧ Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassGoing Places ... LP
A&M, 1965. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Herb Alpert's definitely Going Places by the time of this set – and his trademark Tijuana Brass sound proves itself to be a great fit for just about any sort of number! The album kicks off with the wonderful "Tijuana Taxi", a sublimely jaunty tune that almost takes Herb into Bacharach territory – and which is followed up by the even-greater "Spanish Flea" – an ear-popping anthem that's one of the greatest bits of 60s instrumental pop ever recorded! And over and above those two tunes, the album's still got plenty more to offer too – a wonderful array of tracks all given the Tijuana touch, with titles that include "More & More Amor", "Mae", "Walk Don't Run", "Felicia", and "Cinco De Mayo".

✨✧ Bernard Herrmann/Laurie JohnsonIt's Alive 2 ... LP
Starlog, 1974. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Late Bernard Herrmann – a spooky soundtrack written for Larry Cohen's sequel to the original It's Alive film. The orchestra's actually conducted by Laurie Johnson here, and even at this late date, a Herrmann score stands head and shoulders above most dramatic ones of the time – with lots of space, and loads of spare themes that are sort of similar to his work for Taxi Driver. Titles include "Evil Evolving", "Birth Traumas", "Beautiful & Bizarre", "Revulsion", "Climax", and "Stalking The Infants". LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia, 1979. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A live set by Bob – packaged in a cover that has a picture of him in a Taxi, certainly designed to cash in on his fame doing the theme for that TV show! The record's actually quite nice, and is a good blend of the mellow Bob from later years and the darker Bob from earlier ones – performed with a set of players that include Steve Gadd, Idris Muhammad, Tom Scott, Richard Tee, Earl Klugh, Tom Browne, Joanne Brackeen, and Eddie Gomez. Includes nice versions of "Westchester Lady" and "The Golden Apple", plus "Kari", "Touchdown", "Farandole", and "Stompin At The Savoy". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bob JamesGenie ... LP
CTI, 1983. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A smooth set of keyboard instrumentals built around Bob James' famous theme to the TV show Taxi – also known as "Angela", and probably the way that most mainstream folks know Bob's work! And although that track was plenty famous, it's still a really great number that echoes out with amazing Fender Rhodes notes that never fail to please! "Angela" is included here – along with 9 other tunes that have Bob tweaking around the keys a bit more than usual, going for a few more upbeat tunes, and some slower ones with that sad TV-emotion kind of sound – a nice kind of balance that almost serves as an ersatz soundtrack for the many moods of Taxi. Titles include "Groove For Julie", "Hello Nardo", "The Marilu", "New York Mellow", "Night Moods", and "Angela". LP, Vinyl record album

Tappan Zee, 1979. Sealed Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Bob James is picking up some extra keyboards here – mixing his usual Fender Rhodes with a bit of Oberheim Polyphonic – but the overall sound of the record is still pretty great, and filled with those warm, spacious tones that make Bob's albums so great! Things are slightly smooth, but never cloying – and there's a number of tracks here that show a strong "Taxi" influence in the way Bob puts together t he rhythms and brings the keyboards up in the mix – a style that's slightly gentler than the CTI years, but which also shows a deepening spirit in his work. Titles include "Look Alike", "Rush Hour", "Blue Lick", "Big Stone City", "Friends", and "Fly Away". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bob JamesRhodes Scholar – Jazz Funk Classics 1974 to 1982 ... CD
Tappan Zee/Decision, 1970s/Early 80s. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great work from a player who's maybe one of the best cats ever to handle a Fender Rhodes – and certainly one of the few who really helped push it strongly in jazz during the 70s! The package is a wonderful look at all that's great about Bob James – and brings together all the best tracks from James' years at CTI and Tappan Zee – including some of his most-sampled cuts, each of them a heavenly helping of Fender Rhodes! The set also features some great numbers from later albums that are less classic, but which still have these wonderful nuggets – the kind of sweet keyboard tracks that James does better than anyone else. Presentation of the music is great, and notes are penned by Andrew Mason of Wax Poetics – who also helped produce the set too. 22 tracks in all – including "Valley Of The Shadows", "Nautilus", "Storm King", "Tappan Zee", "Heads", "Night Crawler", "You're As Right As Rain", "Take Me To The Mardi Gras", "Farandole", "Westchester Lady", "Look Alike", "The Steamin Feelin", "Angela (Taxi)", "I Wand To Thank You", "Caribbean Nights", and "Take Me To The Mardi Gras (7" edit)".

✨✧ Real KidsReal Kids (40th Anniversary pressing) ... LP
Red Star/Norton, 1977. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A fantastic slice of work from the Boston scene of the 70s – an overlooked group from the early years of punk, and one who might have gotten much greater acclaim, had they been part of the New York scene down at CBGBs! The Real Kids were formed by lead singer John Felice after parting ways with Jonathan Richman & The Modern Lovers – and it's almost as if Felice held onto all the punk promise of that other group in their early years, then fused it to a searing sort of sound that resonates strongly with the generation of Richard Hell and The Ramones – all served up here on one of the few albums issued by the Red Star label, also famous for issuing the debut record by Suicide. Titles include "Do The Boob", "Taxi Boys", "Better Be Good", "Solid Gold", "All Kindsa Girls", "My Way", "Roberta", and "Just Like Darts". LP, Vinyl record album

Honest Jons (UK), Late 40s/1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A huge collection of work from the great Lord Kitchener – maybe one of the most important singers to move the music of the Caribbean to British shores during the postwar years – a time when he was a strong voice to new waves of immigrants arriving in London, and when he was also making a lot of inroads for criss-crossing post-colonial culture too! The base style is calypso, but Kitchener always handles the music with a spirit that's all his own – modern, witty, and urbane – often with some nice currents of jazz in the instrumentation, and plenty of social commentary that made music like this a great precursor to later righteous moments in jazz, funk, soul, and reggae. Titles include "No More Taxi", "Food From The West Indies", "Come Back In The Morning", "Pirates Of Paria", "Drink A Rum", "If You Brown", "Life Begins At Forty", "Mistress Jacob", "Africa My Home", "Kitch In The Jungle", "Tie Tongue Mopsie", and "London Is The Place For Me".

Honest Jons (UK), 1950s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A great double header from Honest Jons – a 2CD set that brings together volumes 7 and 8 of their London Is The Place For Me series! Volume 7 is first – a fascinating look at musical modes in London during the big years of postwar immigration – a time when former residents of the crumbling British Empire were flooding to London for jobs and a better way of life – often bringing along a huge amount of cultural experience in the process! This set follows wonderfully in the spirit of previous volumes of the series – bringing together a range of different sonic styles that were originally recorded in London as 78rpm singles – where a new wave of Caribbean and West African immigrants were fusing older styles with a newly modern sensibility, and often a fair bit of jazz as well! The set list is wonderful – a great array of well-chosen material – and titles include "Wa Sise" by Willie Payne & The Starlite Tempos, "The Emperor Of Africa" by The Mighty Terror, "Royal Wedding" by The Lion, "Modern Telephone" by Dai Dai Simba, "Sons & Daughters Of Africa" by Lord Beginner, "Caroline" by Trinidad Steel Band, "Ema Foju Ana Woku" by West African Rhythm Brothers, "Kana Kana" by Billy Sholanke, "Boul Ve Se" by Calypso Rhythm Kings, and "My Handy Man" by Marie Bryant. Volume 8 features a huge collection of work from the great Lord Kitchener – maybe one of the most important singers to move the music of the Caribbean to British shores during the postwar years – a time when he was a strong voice to new waves of immigrants arriving in London, and when he was also making a lot of inroads for criss-crossing post-colonial culture too!

✨✧ VariousNuda – 21 Exciting Cuts From The Italian Sexy-Comedy Disco Scene 1975 to 1981 ... CD
Four Flies (Italy), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
That's a sexy lady on the cover, and there's lots of sexy sounds within – music from a whole new generation of Italian soundtrack genius – a time when disco influences were being used to transform some of the groovy modes that always made Italian film scores so great! The disco styles here are mostly in the rhythms – as lots of the instrumentation follows in ways that reference early 70s Italian cop and crime – and, to a lesser extent, some of the mod and bossa styles of the late 60s – all handled by the cream of the crop of the Italian film world, mostly with an instrumental approach! The set list is great, and really brings together the best examples of the genres, and avoids some of the cheesy, clunky tunes that sometimes got in the way on larger soundtracks – which makes for a cool compilation that really packs one hell of a punch! Titles include "La Settimana Bianca" and "Classe Mista" by Gianni Ferrio, "Taxi Girl" by Pulsar Music Ltd, "Scusi Lei E Normale" by Franco Micalizzi, "La Sposina" by Nico Fidenco, "Sette Ragazze Di Classe" by Fabio Frizzi, "L'Insegnante Balla Con Tutta La Classe" by Walter Rizzati, "La Liceale" by Vittorio Pezzola, "La Professoressa Di Scienze Naturali" by Alessandro Alessandroni, "Grazi Nonna" by Enrico Simonetti, and "L'Infermiera Di Mio Padre" by Giacomo Dell'Orso.

Coco, 1974. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
A great little record from Charlie Palmieri – and one of his oddest! The "electro" in the title refers to a strange tinny organ that Charlie plays on many cuts on the record, a cool little instrument that gives the songs a nice twist. The backing's pretty great in the classic Coco Records mode – with strong salsa grooving, and a list of players that includes Tito Puente, Manny Oquendo, Roberto Roena, Cortijo, Cachao, and Andy Gonzalez. The record features a groovy little funk number called "The Taxi Driver" – plus Latin numbers like "Para Caracas Me Voy", "Maracaibo Oriental", "Salazon", and "Las Negritas De Carnaval".

Orpheum/Mississippi, Late 20s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Astonishing work from Alexis Zoumbas – a Greek musician from the early days of the 78rpm recording, and one who plays violin with the dexterity of Paganini, but in ways that are much more rootsy and fokloric overall! Zoumbas' classic 78s have recently gotten new attention on an excellent compilation – but this set brings together unissued material from the same time – a huge undertaking, given that the recordings are almost 100 years old, but come through with a surprising amount of life here – as Alexis' deft solos on his instrument blend with a bit of percussion, piano, or other instrumentation – depending on the track – all with a timeless vibe that's expanded on nicely in the detailed booklet of notes and photos. Titles include "Selfo", "Arvanitikos", "Skizo Rizo Mor Panaghio", "Epirotiko Moiroloi", "Tsamiko Makedonias", and "Rast Taxim". LP, Vinyl record album

The east coast duo have dedicated each title in the series to an NYC borough, and Brooklyn is honored this time out – but there's a world of rare and underground club funk & soul presented here! Includes African disco & soul records with all regions dancefloor appeal, raw percussion and bass accented numbers that are tight and punchy and others with a more soaring approach, all of it totally wonderful and hard-to-find – including some we've seen or heard before! The vinyl version features 2LPs with unmixed tracks, with Kon's selections on 2 sides and Amir's on 2 sides – some featured on the mixed 2CD versions plus alternate tracks!
