Otis & CarlaTramp/Tell It Like It Is ... 7-inch
Stax, Late 60s. Very Good ... $8.99
Of all the "tramp" songs of the 60s, this funky duet by Otis Redding and Carla Thomas is certainly the best! It sounds great on this nice original 45, and it's backed by another duet that you'll certain recognize. 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Lowell FulsomTramp (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Kent/P-Vine (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of THE all time classics of funky blues – a record built around Lowell's huge single "Tramp" – a massive tune that spawned a whole generation of answer tunes! "Tramp" kicks off the set with a stone break that's worth the price of the album – then Lowell slides into some tunes that have a bit more of a conventional bluesy approach, mixed with a few other nice cuts that get a bit funky too! A rough-edged classic that really stands out – and which has made Fulsom one of the better-collected bluesmen of the beathead crowd. In addition to "Tramp", other tracks include "Two Way Wishin", "Back Door Key", "Year Of 29", "Pico", "Goin' Home", and "Black Nights". Includes 2 bonus tracks – "Tramp (take 1)" and "Year Of 29 (alt take)". CD

Lucky Brown & The SGsPecan Trees Speak To Each Other (10 inch EP) ... LP
Tramp (Germany), 2020. New Copy ... $18.99
A really great bit of jazzy funk – put together by Lucky Brown with the Longhorns and SGs, and done in a way that's kind of a cross between spiritual jazz and straighter grooves – with maybe a touch of Ethio horns in the mix! The package is very cool – limited, and looking like a lost 10" acetate – with tracks that include "Pecan Trees Speak (edit)", "Pecan Trees Speak To Each Other", "Bout To Blow (rehearsal)", and "Scavenge Patch Blues". LP, Vinyl record album
(Hand-numbered limited edition of 350 – and in vintage 78 sleeve!)

Tyree Glenn JrSuperbad – The Best Of Tyree Glenn Jr (with bonus 7 inch single) ... LP
Tramp (Germany), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $22.99
Killer funky soul from Tyree Glenn Jr – son of the legendary trombonist Tyree Glenn, but a completely badass artist in his own unique mode! Tyree here borrows plenty from the books of James Brown and Kool & The Gang – a back to basics version of funk, with plenty of his own soul vocals over the top – all sounding much more 70s here overall, despite some of the dates of the recordings! A few tracks are live, a few are studio, and the album pulls together rare work from a few different albums – which may have only been issued overseas. Titles include "Marl Sehen", "Superbad", "Vehicle", "Cisco Kid", "Jealous Love", "Beautiful Woman", "SOS", and "Kool & The Gang". LP, Vinyl record album
(Initial 300 LPs include a bonus 7 inch – with the track "Hold My Hand"! Also includes download & 5x8 photo!)

VariousContemporary Afro Beat – A Fine Selection Of Some Of Today's Most Exciting Afro Beat Bands From All Over The World ... CD
Tramp (Germany), 2011. Used ... $11.99
The third in the Contemporary series from Tramp Records – this one focusing on the fertile modern international Afro Beat scene – with funky numbers by Kokolo Afrobeat Orchestra, The Boogoos, Akoya Afrobeat Ensemble, Express Brass Band, N'Ghare Hi Power Band and more! What's so impressive about the material on Contemporary Afro Beat is essentially how well it lives up to the title in such a great away. The spirit of Fela and classic Afro Funk inflects every drum beat, impassioned vocal and burst of brass, but it's done by combos who are not living in a timewarp, it's freshly done with modern relevance. Titles include "Crache La Douleur" by Fanga, "One Way" by Afromotive, "Every Woman Is A Good Woman" by Jojo Quo & Challengers, "Donkey" by Kokolo Afrobeat Orchestra, "Theme For Isaac Kirya" by The Boogoos, "PDP" by Akoya Afrobeat Ensemble, "Radio Kabul" by Express Brass Band, "Africa My Dear" by Afrodita and more.

The tenth edition in this really fantastic series – a collection of tunes that's moved way past the traditional funk compilations from years back – really showing the evolving taste for a groove in the global underground! The tunes here effortlessly mix together rare soul, groovy jazz, and plenty more – pulled from impossibly rare 45s and albums that remind us that, even though we've spend decades digging in the crates, we still have a heck of a lot to learn about music! We're especially in love with some of the more obscure soul jazz vocalists here – artists we never would have discovered otherwise – and the package features tracks that include "Spooky" by Frankie Greer Quartette, "Kitchen Cookin" by Eddie Buster Band, "The Mustang (parts 1 & 2)" by The New Philadelphians, "Under The Covers" by The Kats, "Coming Home Baby" by Ronny Pellers Satin Sound, "Evil Ways" by The Lido, "El Mexicano" by Brazada, "Title Town" by Herb Crawford Jazz Ensemble, "Little Sister (parts 1 & 2)" by The Headliners, "Radiation Funk" by Maxell, and "String Around My Heart" by Eunice Haze.

VariousPraise Poems 7 – A Journey Into Deep Soulful Jazz & Funk From The 1970s ... CD
Tramp (Germany), 1970s. New Copy ... $14.99
This series keeps blowing us away with each new entry – taking us into musical territory that's completely its own, in a way that few other compilations have ever done! The cover is a bit misleading, as the territory here is the farther reaches of hip soul and groovy jazz in the 70s – territory that's slightly spiritual, but not in the more familiar modes of spiritual jazz – as most tunes have a bit of a groove, and the compilation balances instrumental and vocal tracks in this really great way – almost with a compressed approach to righteousness that really packs a heck of a lot of spirit into a shorter sort of track! The whole thing is filled with music we never would have discovered otherwise – and titles include "Wear Me Out" by The Kats, "Low Down Soul" by Jerry Sandifer, "Summertime" by Promotion Soul Concern, "He Does It Better' by Marva Josie, "Brazilica" by Stevens Scott & Dee, "Sometimes" by Penn Central, "Love In Disguise" by The New Hope Project, "A Blind Man Who Can See" by Edmund Sullivan, "She Shut Me Down" by The M+M, "Flower Song" by Shalynn, and "So Far Down" by James Kelly Duhon.

VariousThis Is My Thing! – Deep Funk/Jazz Breaks/Hip Hop/Afrosoul – Selected By Tobias Kirmayer ... CD
Tramp (Germany), 2007. Used ... $11.99
Contemporary grooves, but all pretty darn funky – thanks to an excellent track selection by Tobias Kirmayer – the same guy who brought us the excellents Movements collections! A few of the titles here are of older vintage, but most are pulled from the same deep funk underground that Kirmayer services with his Tramp Records label – groups steeped in the styles of the 60s and 70s underground, but who serve up new work that's filled with plenty of funky roots! Despite the wide range of styles promised in the title, most of the titles here are on the grittier side of the spectrum – which is a good thing for us – and even the few tracks that are a bit more programmed still work with plenty of soulful and jazzy elements to keep things real throughout. Titles include "Nothin But A Party" by The Blenders, "Get Clean" by The Nitesounds, "Skins Funk" by Skin Williams & His Dominoes, "Bubbles" by The Boogoos, "Violet" by Hi-Fly Orchestra, "Rhythmo" by Dusty, "Get High" by Dr Sonnenschein, "Barbados Stew" by Caldonia, "First Time Around" by Sagaflex & Rudy Tee, and "Trip To Afrika" by Baccarola.

VariousTrip To The Moon – 13 Super Groovy Soul, Rhythm N Blues, & Funk Songs About the Moon ... CD
Tramp (Germany), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... $14.99
Turns out, folks were going to the moon long before Neil Armstrong took his giant step for mankind – spinning out into space with rare singles like these – all great moon-themed numbers that rocket into space with solid fuel of their own! The set's got this fantastic mix of styles – deep soul, heavy funk, raw garage rock, and stomping R&B – plus a few other numbers that almost defy description, but which share plenty with the rest in terms of their space-age themes and cool approach to instrumentation and production! There's plenty of playful moments throughout – and the whole thing is a groovy collection of tracks that we mostly wouldn't have heard otherwise. Titles include "Walking On The Moon" by Rev Jamel & Bob Johnson, "Sputnik" by Sidney Owens & North South Connection, "Moon Man Is Back" by La La Wilson, "Crazy Stockings On The Moon" by The Swinging Astronauts, "Moon Child" by Ernest & DL Rocco, "Mars In 75 (part 1)" by Sunny Man Kado, "Mondgesicht" by Orchester Ambros Seelos, "Moon Child" by Scott Cunningham Band, and "Voyage To The Moon" by Black Fox.

Tramp (Germany), 2019. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The Eminent Stars maybe bring a bit more roots into their music here – by really leaning on the lead vocals of Bruce James – a raspy-voiced singer with a style that has plenty of roots in New Orleans styles from years back! The group still have plenty of their strong horn lines in place, and the album also has some instrumental moments too – but James gives the record a strong focus, in a legacy that might run up from Dr John through Joe Cocker – but with more funky combo instrumentation overall. Titles include "On The 5", "Mrs Phillips", "Just One Taste", "Big Easy Dreams", and "Sweet & Salty" – plus the nine minute live track "The Club/Tune In". LP, Vinyl record album

Tramp (Germany), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Syl Foreman really belts it out of the park on "Before I Leave You" – a tune that's almost got Syl popping the microphone levels into the red, as he romps along with the jaunty guitar and organ in the groove! The tune's a bit deep soul, but funkier – and the drums really go wild on the flipside, which is something of an echoey "part 2" to the main cut! 7-inch, Vinyl record

The horn section still has a strong role – two saxes, one trombone – but there are also both instrumental and rhythmic shifts from track to track – so that in the former, a keyboard or guitar might stand out more in the lead – or in the latter, the groove changes from more familiar modes to really help expand their style, and also open up some of the jazzier currents in their all-instrumental approach! There's even some great ngoni at a few points, which really sounds wonderful - and titles include "Call Of The Bulbul Bird", "Thorns To Fruit", "Money Is The Curse", "sand To Soil", and "A Snake Is Just A String".

Tramp (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Funky sax genius from Professor Earl Lett – a cool combo player who cut some great funky 45s at the end of the 60s and start of the 70s! The cuts here are a mix of instrumental and vocal numbers – but even the latter have plenty of reed work from Earl, blown with a sharp-edged and totally soulful sound that rivals the best from bigger-name contemporaries like King Curtis or Maceo! The grooves are mighty sharp – all played by small funky groups, such as The Earl Lett International Soul Set – and the set brings together work from Earl's Beantown singles and album, plus a few rare other cuts too. Tracks include "Monkey's Tail", "Street Girl", "Theme From Canada", "Green Power", "Take Twenty", "Don't Say Goodbye", "Soul Sax", "The Boston Puppy", "Do The Thing", and "The Funky Professor". CD

Donald BaileySo In Love ... CD
Trio/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $22.99
A fantastic record from jazz harmonica player Donald Bailey – maybe one of the few we've ever seen with his name in the lead, and a set that shows that he can easily rival some of the greats on his instrument at the time! The vibe of the set is a bit like some of the best jazz dates from Toots Thielemans – mellow accompaniment from a Japanese group that features Hideo Ichikawa on piano, Yoshio Ikeda on bass, and Takaki Nishikawa on drums – plus guest tenor from Hideyuki Kikuchi on two tracks! Yet throughout it all, the round, robust sound of Bailey on the harmonica is in the lead – blowing with a strong sense of tone, and an imaginative power that shows how he, like Toots, can really match the energy of a saxophonist in sense of solo and rhythm. Titles include "Half Nelson", "The Lady Is A Tramp", "Invitation", "So In Love", and "Alone Together". CD

Lowell FulsomLovemaker (Japanese paper sleeve edition – plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Big Town/P-Vine (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $22.99
A bit later than some of Lowell Fulsom's funk work for Kent Records – but a set that's almost more vintage overall! The album's recorded for the short-lived Big Town imprint – a late 70s venue that took older R&B artists back to the sounds of a few decades before – never too rootsy, thanks to the style of production – but with less attempt to crossover to a contemporary audience than the artists might have used on another label. There is a fair bit of heavy guitar in the 70s – a kind of post-blues revival feel that comes on loud and clear, and which sounds especially great on the title track "Lovemaker", which almost has a funky "Tramp" groove at the bottom! Other cuts include "Bending Like A Willow Tree", "Get The Cash & Let The Credit Go", "My Mind Is Trying To Leave Me Too", "When Things Go Wrong", and "I Am Not Worried". CD features 2 bonus tracks – "Price For Love" and "All I Want Is For You To Love Me". CD

Very nice work from Lowell Fulsom – strongly in the mode of his Tramp album for Kent, with a mix of blues and 60s soul, coming together in a sock-hard style that's much better than a lot of Fulsom's other work for other labels! Arrangements are by Rene Hall and Maxwell Davis – the latter of whom does a surprisingly great job on giving up a sharper edge than we remember in his other work. About half the set's straight blues, but the half that's not is nice and funky – including the "Tramp" follow-up "I'm A Drifter", a nice cover of "Funky Broadway", and the cut "Let's Go Get Stoned". Other titles include "Feel So Bad", "I Cried", "The Letter", "Tomorrow", and "Mellow Together". CD features 2 bonus tracks too – "Blues Pain" and "I Wanna Spend Christmas With You". CD

Kent/P-Vine (Japan), 1966. New Copy ... $22.99
The title gets it right here – as the album's as much a soul effort as a blues one – and is a nice change from the sound of Lowell's earlier years! There's still plenty of grit in the grooves here – and even with the front cover proclamation, the album's still one that's best filed in the blues racks – but the album does show a great mixing of modes that was common for some of the west coast releases on the Kent label at the time – the kind of south LA blend of sounds from the east mingled with the 60s changes going on in its own community. Lowell's vocals have a hard-bitten edge that's totally great, and instrumentation includes some heavy piano and guitar, plus some of the heavier rhythms that point towards his famous Tramp sound to come. The album has a pretty nice soulful feel – a bit rootsy, but also with some urban electric touches that go nicely with Lowell's vocals – and titles include "Shattered Dreams", "Talkin Woman", "Black Nights", "Sittin Here Thinkin", "Every Time It Rains", and "My Aching Back". CD features 2 bonus tracks – "Strange Feeling" and "Trouble I'm In". CD

Funky blues and plenty of soul – a massive 4CD set that not only features the complete 60s recordings done by Lowell Fulson for the Kent label, but which also includes a fair bit of rarities and unreleased material! If you're a fan of funky soul, you've probably heard Lowell's classic "Tramp" – a cut sampled heavily in early hip hop years, and still one of the best blends of blues and funk you'll ever hear – a mode that Fulson explored heavily on the Kent label, after a long initial career recording for Chess, Modern, and other labels. The sense of rhythm on most of these cuts is great – and Lowell's got a nicely sinister vibe to his vocals, too – often matched with guitar that more than keeps up his blues chops, but which also has plenty of funky touches as well. The first 2CDs in the set features released material for Kent – 51 tracks – then CD3 features 23 more unreleased rare tracks and remixes, and CD4 features 22 more alternate takes and other unissued numbers – a huge batch of material in a really wonderful package!

The recording quality is great – lots of bold echo from the piano, and even a bit of Erroll's grunting vocalizations somewhere in the mix – kind of an extra added emphasis that sounds great next to the bass of Eddie Calhoun and drums of Kelly Martin. Titles include "Just One Of Those Things", "Blue Lou", "The Lady Is A Tramp", "Dreamstreet", and the groovy "Mambo Gotham" – an especially jaunty little number! LP, Vinyl record album

Marini still swings on most numbers, but the approach is different than more familiar quartet or quintet albums – deeply personal, in a way that becomes especially meaningful once you hear Marini's tone – slightly raspy, very human, and maybe unlike any other baritonist we can think of! The horn does all these amazing things throughout the course of the record, even on familiar tunes – and titles include "Blue Mob", "Thelonious", "All The Things You Are", "Day Dream", "Gershwin Goes To Rio", and "The Lady Is A Tramp".

✨✧ Otis ReddingDock Of The Bay ... CD
Volt/Rhino, 1968. Used ... $4.99
A very important crossover soul album – a huge hit for Otis Redding that was released after his tragic death in December 1967 – but it's also hard to say if it would have had the impact it did had Redding not passed while the LP was still in production. In a way, the record sort of set the stage for the mythologies of pop stars that would surround the tragedies in the coming years of the late 60s – with liner notes on the back by Jon Landau about the impact of Redding's work and passing on the rest of the music industry, which would be even more charged with meaning to folks buying the album at the time, who certainly knew that Redding had cut "Dock of the Bay" a few days before his death, and had missed its meteoric rise to #1 after his passing. And in fact, the album itself is more of a loose collection of tracks pulled from singles and other sources to cash in on Redding's passing – and includes odd numbers like "The Huckle Buck", which had previously appeared on a Stax promo album, or "Tramp", his famous funky duet with Carla Thomas. Other titles include "I'm Coming Home", "Ole Man Trouble", "Open The Door", and "Let Me Come On Home". CD

The tunes here are tremendous – numbers that are tightly jazzy, often with hip west coast backing from arranger Marty Paich – who really knows how to balance together swinging rhythms and warmer tones that perfectly suit Torme's unique vocal style. In fact, if we dare say it, as great as Mel is in other settings, he'd also probably admit that the Bethlehem sides were the high point of his recorded career – material he'd reference often in later years. CD features 16 tracks in all – including "Lullaby Of Birdland", "The Lady Is A Tramp", "Lulu's Back In Town", "I Got It Bad & That Ain't Good", "They Can't Take That Away From Me", "It's All Right With Me", "Poor Little Extra Girl", "Nice Work If You Can Get It", "I Got Plenty O Nuttin", "Fascinating Rhythm", and "Just One Of Those Things".

Gerald WigginsRelax & Enjoy It – Jazz Piano Moods By Gerry Wiggins ... CD
Contemporary/OJC, 1962. Used ... $24.99
Relax, but not in a sleepy sort of way – because Gerald Wiggins really hits a great little groove on this record – one that bounces along with a soulful undercurrent that keeps things fresh, and still lets him soar on the keys when he wants to! Rhythm is by the team of Joe Comfort on bass and Jackie Mills on drums – but both players really take a back seat to Wig, who's in fine fine form here, and really at home in the comfortable Contemporary Records setting. Titles include "Narcissus", "Just Squeeze Me/Satin Doll", "Serenade In Blue", "Blue Wig", and "The Lady Is A Tramp". CD

✨✧ VariousFunky Blues 1960s to 1970s – Modern/Kent Blues Treasures ... CD
Modern/Kent/P-Vine (Japan), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... $16.99
The title gets it right – and the grooves do too – nothing but funky blues from the 60s and 70s, the kind of gritty, hard-edged tunes that are way better than the sort of blues you might be used to hearing at frat boy bars! All of the work here was originally issued on west coast indie powerhouse Kent/Modern – and the package does a good job of pulling out some under-recognized gems from the funkier side of their output at the time – tracks that often have some very tight drums, rumbling basslines, and scratchy guitar alongside the more soul-oriented vocals. Titles include "Let Your Hair Down" and "You Make Me Cry" by Arthur K Adams; "Kidney Stew" and "Two Ton Mama" by Newman Family; "Funky Way" by Jimmy Bee; "Women's Liberation" by TV Mama Jean; "What You See Is What You're Gonna Get" by Brenda George; "The Turning Point" by Rudy Ray Moore; "Night Time" and "Go To Train" by Smokey Wilson; "Tramp" by Foxfire; and "Mellow Together", "Funky Broadway", "The Thing", and "Hobo Meeting" by Lowell Fulsom.

Perfect Toy (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $1.99
A second turn in the Movements series on the Perfect Toy label – some of the most blazingly funky 45s you'll hear – put together by the Tobias Kirmayer of Tramp Records! Once again we're floored by how great all of this stuff sounds – some of the deepest, tightest funk material we've ever heard – with snapping drums, perfectly timed horn blasts – and some hard psychedelic soul touches of organ and wailing vocals – while never falling short of unfailingly funky! 15 great tracks: "If It Feels Good" by Phil Flowers, "There's A Wrinkle In Our Time" by 1984, "Don't Chain My Soul" by Carlton Basco, "My Mind Set Me Free Pt 1" by House Guests, "Now Is The Time" by Sisters Love, "Southern Fried Chicken Pts 1 & 2" by Bill Thomas & The Fendells, "Warm Daddy's Choice" by River Front Band, "Bring Out Yourself" by Emperors Soul 69, "Bahama Soul Stew" by Funky Nassau, "Motherless Child" by Harmonica Paul, "Arabian Funk" by Ray Anthony and more!

Vampi Soul (Spain), Mid 70s. New Copy 2 LPs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Some of the heaviest funk you'll ever find in one tiny package – all courtesy of the mighty Betty Davis! Betty's work of the 70s is beyond compare – fuzzed-out, tripped-up, drum-heavy funk that's been the stuff of legend for years, and which is the kind of music you could play for just about anyone, and have them say "DANG, what the hell is that!?!" This tasty little set brings together tracks from Betty's 3 albums of the mid 70s – Betty Davis, Nasty Gal, and They Say I'm Different – done with a focus on the hardest-hitting tracks from each set, and put together with a real ear for the kind of tunes that still burn mightily after all these years. Titles include "Steppin In Her I Miller Shoes", "If I'm In Luck I Might Get Picked Up", "Don't Call Her No Tramp", "Shut Off The Light", "Nasty Gal", "FUNK", "You & I", "70s Blues", "They Say I'm Different", and "Git In There". 16 tracks on 2LPs!

Octave/Mack Avenue, 1961. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Garner grooves nicely here – finding an almost renewed energy for the 60s, but still hitting all those highly-rhythmic modes we love so much in his early work! The recording quality is great – lots of bold echo from the piano, and even a bit of Erroll's grunting vocalizations somewhere in the mix – kind of an extra added emphasis that sounds great next to the bass of Eddie Calhoun and drums of Kelly Martin. Titles include "Just One Of Those Things", "Blue Lou", "The Lady Is A Tramp", "Dreamstreet", and the groovy "Mambo Gotham" – an especially jaunty little number! CD

✨✧ Mark MurphyStart Of Something ... LP
Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Quite possibly the greatest of Mark Murphy's early albums for Capitol – a heavily swinging set that features some great arrangements from Bill Holman, and Mark's classic version of the title tune – which he'd reprise nicely in years to come! The album's got Murphy in great west coast jazz territory – working with players who include Bill Holman and Richie Kamuca on tenors, Conte Candoli and Stu Williamson on trumpets, Jimmy Rowles on piano, Bobby Gibbons on guitar, and Mel Lewis on drums – plus a bit of extra conga on half of the set! Side one features great readings of "This Could Be The Start Of Something", "Just In Time", "Falling In Love With Love", and "The Lady Is A Tramp" – and side two features a swinging medley of tracks that include "Lucky In Love", "Cheek To Cheek", "That Old Black Magic", and "For Me & My Gal".

A strong collection of (mostly) early-to-mid 90s recordings by Mississippi blues legend Junior Kimbrough – compiling his Fat Possum recordings and as a set that really is essential! It includes recordings captured Junior's Juke Joint in Chulahoma, MS, home recordings and more – raw and right in Junior's unflinching element. Includes the great opener "Release Me" with Charlie Feathers – recorded in 1969 – and the subsequent 90s material sounds right at home with it . . .pretty amazing!

Motown, 1974. Very Good Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic early demonstration of the solo powers of Diana Ross – a live date from Vegas, and one that has her commanding the stage not just as a singer of soul music, but as a female star ready to rival the talents of any of her contemporaries in the mainstream! Ross shines here with a brilliant brightness right from the start – working with a large ensemble that echoes all her best Motown roots, but which also pushes things out in fuller, more vibrant modes too – as Diana runs through tracks that include old soul favorites, jazz standards, and even some surprising choices from the charts – at a level that's filled with poise, class, and soul throughout. Titles include a great "Supremes Medley", plus "Don't Rain On My Parade", "Corner Of The Sky", "I Love You Porgy", "My Man", "The Lady Is A Tramp", "Ain't No Mountain High Enough", and a "Lady Sings The Blues Medley" with titles from the Billie Holiday songbook.

✨✧ Molly O'Day & The Cumberland Mountain FolksMolly O'Day & The Cumberland Mountain Folks ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Very nice late 40s female country vocals from Molly O' Day! Molly only recorded for a handful of years for Columbia Records, and most of that output is collected on this fine 2 CD set from Bear Family featuring close to 40 tracks. Molly had the way down home twang and soulful wail of the first Hank, the spiritual side of the Carters, but also an incredibly sweet voice and the more outward personality of a Roy Acuff, and it's a shame we don't have decades of material to peruse. Tracks include "The Tramp On The Street", "When God Comes And Garners His Jewels", "The Black Sheep Returned To The Fold", "Put My Rubber Doll Away", "Matthew Twenty-Four", "Mother's Gone But Not Forgotten", "This Is The End", "Fifteen Years Ago", "Poor Ellen Smith", "Coming Down From God", "Don't Sell Daddy Any More Whiskey", "It's Different Now", "It's All Coming True", and "When We See Our Redeemer's Face". It should go without saying that the folks at Bear Family have gone all out to include a thick booklet with rare photos and a full biography. CD

A&M, 1974. Very Good+ ... $11.99
Pure mainstream 70s pop genius, the most fully-formed of all early Supertramp albums – and a record that's filled with a surprising amount of great Fender Rhodes moments too! The set's a masterpiece from start to finish – filled with themes of loss and loneliness, but served up by the group with an incredibly redemptive sense of majesty and power – really fresh for the time, and still wonderful all these many years later – despite the fact that so many of these songs have gone onto become classics. The keyboards on the set work perfectly with the oddly-timed rhythms of the tunes – and there's a great blend here between high concept and straight ahead pop – on titles that include "School", "Bloody Well Right", "Asylum", "Dreamer", "Rudy", and "Crime Of The Century".

The cover seems to imply that Chuck Mangione's one of the few cats who can play flugelhorn on a trampoline – but whatever the setting, Mangione's at the height of his late 70s powers here – blowing that clean, compressed style that crossed over beautifully at the time! Chuck's got a way of balancing the sweet and the soulful here nicely – drifting along with the rhythms, so that all the most rounded, open notes of his horn cascade out warmly – yet never in the sort of too-polished mode that would show up later in mainstream fusion. From the perspective of the 21st Century, it's surprising how strong this set sounds – especially on the few numbers that change things up a bit in the rhythms. Titles include "Give It All You Got", "Pina Colada", "I Never Missed Someone Before", "You're The Best There Is", and "Fun & Games". LP, Vinyl record album

Trojan/Doctor Bird (UK), 1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A killer double-length set of work from Desmond Dekker – one that's put together by Trojan Records to feature all the lesser-known and unreleased tracks that Desmond recorded during the years of his initial hits! As such, the album's a treasure trove of work that goes way past the oft-issued singles that Desmond cut in the late 60s and early 70s – tracks that are wonderful, and some of our favorites – but which are greatly expanded here! Dekker's voice is fantastic – as always – one of the sweetest soul sounds in Jamaican music – and the grooves are a mix of rocksteady and new reggae modes that were bubbling forth at the time. Titles include "Look What They're Doing To Me", "Life Of Opportunity", "Little Darling", "Warlock", "Licking Stick", "Hippopotamus", "The Song We Used To Sing", "Go & Tell My People", "Trample", "What Will You Gain", "My Reward", "Mother Nature", and "Life Hope & Faith". CD features 6 bonus tracks ''Father Noah", "Generosity", and four alternate versions of songs on the album! CD
