Anita O'DayLady Is A Tramp ... LP

One of Anita's strongest for Verve – featuring backing by a few different groups.

Next up is Roy Kral, playing piano and arranging a quintet that includes Earl Backus on guitar and Jim Wilson on bongos – on tracks that include "No Soap, No Hope Blues", "Strawberry Moon", and "Speak Low".

Eminent StarsBumpin On (with bonus download) ... LP
Tramp (Germany), 2019. New Copy ... $18.99
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

Syl ForemanBefore I Leave You/Before I Leave You Baby ... 7-inch
Tramp (Germany), Late 60s. New Copy ... $6.99
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

KutimangoesAfrotropism ... CD
Tramp (Germany), 2019. New Copy ... $14.99
The Kutimangoes keep on refining their groove with each new release – and really open up with a nice sense of variety from the usual Afro Funk mode! 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. New Copy ... $9.99
There's a great mix of sock-soul and funk going on here – as a raw-voiced lead singer belts out the lyric over riffing guitar and romping drums – all while some horns come into the mix, cooking things up with almost a Texas soul sort of style! Part 2 is nice and loose, with some great instrumental moments too! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Tramp (Germany), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $28.99
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.

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.

✨✧ VariousPraise Poems 6 – A Journey Into Deep Soulful Jazz & Funk From The 1970s (with bonus download) ... LP
Tramp (Germany), 1970s. New Copy 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Fantastic sounds from this always-great series – one that's always got an unassuming title, but which always turns us onto a great range of songs we've never heard before! As with previous volumes, the approach here is really unique – not really spiritual jazz, or righteous soul – but often somewhere in between – the kinds of cuts that maybe never fully got noticed at the time because they were so unique! There's a very deep vibe to the whole thing – music that lifts the spirit and heals the mind – but never in a way that's as hokey as that might sound. Instead, the set's full of work by artists who got great inspiration from the more righteous new trends of the late 60s, then really took the music in their own direction with these recordings. Titles include "Going Crazy" by Fusion, "For What It's Worth" by Cesar's Children, "Things I Could Be" by Monopoly, "Cherokee" by Verses, "For All The Good Times" by Rama Dyushambee, "White Bird" by Flood, "Melting The Ice" by Michael Kiser, "Sunshine You'll Love It" by Alan Burton, "Betcha Never Knew" by Federico Cervantes, "Freeom" by Daybreak, and "Feeling The Sunshine" by Waves.

✨✧ VariousCan You Feel It – Modern Soul, Disco, & Boogie 1976 to 1986 ... LP
Tramp (Germany), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
The cover's a bit creepy, but the set's a great one – way more soulful than the image of a dummy might make you expect! The collection follows strongly in the same territory as the funk titles on the Tramp Records label – and like those, digs deep in the American underground to find a host of under-exposed gems from back in the day – tunes that start out in the fast funk years of disco, but also move into some great 80s grooves as well! There's a huge number of cuts here we've never heard before – but that's no surprise, given the way that Tramp puts a set like this together – and titles include "The Freeze" by Steven Toll, "SOS" by Tyree Glenn Jr, "Missing You" by Silky Vincent Group, "Sights & Sounds" by Jeffords Brothers, "Medicine Man" by Grayson Street, "Puss (part 1)" by Oakland Express, "A Fool No Longer" by Afrodisia, "Don't It Make You Feel Good" by Deep South Dance Band, "Touchdown Cleveland Browns" by Ray Jay Band, "Future" by Keither Florence & The Associates, "Anytime" by Empulse, "Beautiful Day" by Mel O Madnezz, and "Dig This Piece" by Progressive Sounds Band.

✨✧ VariousGet Funky – The Best Of CRS Records (plus bonus 7 inch) ... LP
Tramp (Germany), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Great sounds from the relatively small catalog of CRS Records – a Philly company who only issued a handful of singles over a number of years – but who really managed to come up with gold in the process! CRS has a great way of mixing together deep soul and funk – often from the heavier side of the spectrum, at a level that not only resonates with some of the hipper, more powerful Philly currents of the early 70s – but also a fair bit of Detroit funk as well, especially some of the music on the Westbound Records label! This set is a searing batch of funky soul – like playing a stack of rare 45s back to back – with titles that include "You're The Only One" by Bonnie Blanchard, "Man Hunt" by Mitzi Ross, "Think It Over" by Carl Sherlock Holmes, "Thinking Of You" by The Butlers, "Gut Funky" by Midnight Madness, "Don't Change On Me" by The Zodiacs, "That's The Kind Of Man I Am" by George Johnson Jr, "A Real Good Lovin Man (part 1)" by Bonnie Blanchard, "Hey Rough Nut" by The Zodiacs, "Thinking Of You" by Midnight Madness", and "Just Because You're You" by George Johnson Jr. LP, Vinyl record album

Ella FitzgeraldElla At Juan-Les-Pins (Deluxe Edition) ... CD
Verve, 1964. Used 2 CDs ... $24.99
A hugely expanded version of the classic double live album by Ella Fitzgerald – featuring a total of 48 tracks in all, recorded over 2 nights at a French jazz festival in 1964, with backing by a group that includes Roy Eldridge and Tommy Flanagan. More than half of the set appears to be previously unissued – and the whole thing's packaged in a wonderful wraparound cover, with great art and notes, and new remastering on the CD. Titles include "Day In Day Out", "Just A Sittin & A Rockin", "People", "Someone To Watch Over Me", "Boy From Ipanema", "The Cricket Song", "Perdido", "Summertime", "The Lady Is A Tramp", "I Love Being Here With You", "Goody Goody", "Cutie Pants", and "Mack The Knife". Some of the cuts repeat over the course of the performance, but they're done in slightly different versions. CD

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

Three Blind Mice/Craftman (Japan), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... About December 26, 2019 (delayed)
Mellow vocals from the lovely Ayako Hosokawa – one of Japan's greatest jazz vocalists of the 70s, singing here in a warm and intimate setting. Ayako sings in English, mostly American standards plus a few pop numbers – and the backing for the set includes keyboards, tenor, guitar, and strings – flowing out in the best mellow style of the Three Blind Mice label of the time. The real standout cut is Ayako's great reading of "Feel Like Making Love" – worth the price of the album alone for its dope 70s groove – and other cuts include "When You Smile", "The Lady Is A Tramp", "Misty", "Mr Wonderful", and "The Lady Is A Tramp".

Molly O'Day & The Cumberland Mountain FolksMolly O'Day & The Cumberland Mountain Folks ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy 2CD ... $22.99 39.99
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

Pete swings things hard here – with the same dramatic flair and playful turns of his own instrumental albums on Mercury – creating a setting that brings a lot more life into Patti Page than you might expect! There's lots of dynamic horn work on most numbers – bursting out and blasting forth with a quality that really helps direct the sound of the vocals – and titles include "Nevertheless", "A Foggy Day", "My Sin", "Love For Sale", "The Lady Is A Tramp", and "I Didn't Know About You".

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

As proof of that, the record includes the great breakbeat track "Papa Was, Too", with a hard funky beat and sample riff that you'll recognize from way back. (Not only that, but the cut's a great answer to Otis & Carla's famous "Tramp".) Other tracks include the hit "Skinny Legs & All" (an answer to "Big Leg Woman"?), plus "Wooden Spoon", "Don't Give Up", and "Show Me". LP, Vinyl record album

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!

✨✧ Pinky WintersPinky ... CD
Vantage/Venus (Japan), 1954. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The first album ever from Pinky Winters – a beautiful little set that already has the singer reaching some great heights in her music! The feel of the record is quite similar to some of the vocal sessions on Bethlehem from the mid 50s – particularly the Chris Connors albums – and Pinky sits nicely alongside some small group backing from Bud Lavin on piano, Jim Wolf on bass, and Stan Levey on drums! As with a Bethlehem date, the charm here comes not from the songs, or the arrangements – but from the personal, relaxed way that Pinky puts together her performance – free of cliche, and really crafted in that freshly intimate style of jazz singing that was just coming into play when Winters hit the west coast. Titles include "Cool Sazerac", "This Can't Be Love", "Darn That Dream", "The World Is Your Balloon", and "Little Girl Blue". CD comes with 12 more bonus tracks – really expanding the original album – titles that include "You Better Go Now", "Darn That Dream", "The Nearness Of You", "The Lady Is A Tramp", and "But Not For Me".

Safe Trip (Netherlands), Early 90s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
A much-needed look at this sometimes-missed chapter in Italian music – a moment when the Italo Club sound of the 80s had transformed into a scene that gave us some of the cleanest, leanest house music of the time! Earlier Italian imports had a big impact on the birth of house music in Chicago – and a few years later, those forward-thinking sounds were used to bring a needed revamp to Italian club as well – as you'll hear in these wonderfully-executed cuts that often have the best spare sounds of the US underground, mixed with some classic elements that warm things up in a mighty nice way! All volumes are filled with well-chosen cuts that never got the kind of attention they should have at the time – and titles on this third edition include "Illusion" by Optik, "Universal" by Leo Anibaldi, "Tramp Heart" by Green Baize, "Children Trip" by Deep Choice, "Deep Blue" by Deep Blue, "Walkin On The Moon" by Cosmic Galaxy, "Paranoia" by Golem, "Sweet Pieces (alt mix)" by Lonely Dance, "Ouverture" by Don Carlos, and "Dance To The House (unreleased edit)" by Neurostate.

✨✧ Cannonball AdderleyAlabama/Africa (Alabama Concerto/African Waltz) ... LP
Riverside, 1958. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $8.99
2 fantastic albums, not really in the same bag, but combined for reissue that still works nicely as a set. The first LP, John Benson Brooks' Alabama Concerto was groundbreaking work – not only for Cannonball, but for the jazz concerto format, used to strong effect here in this extended modernist composition. The album's based on a number of historical and mythical southern themes – which keeps it from swinging hard all the way through, the work of Adderley and Art Farmer on the solo sections really opens up the piece and gives it a deep sense of soul. Other players include Barry Galbraith on guitar, Milt Hinton on bass, and Brooks on drums – and themes include "The Loop", "Trampin", "Little John Shoes", "Milord's Calling", and "Rufus Playboy". African Waltz changes up the format entirely, with Adderley's alto fronting a large group conducted by Ernie Wilkins, and featuring a host of hip players like Melba Liston, Oliver Nelson, Jerome Richardson, Ray Barretto, Sam Jones, and Wynton Kelly. The title track is a beautiful reading of Galt MacDermott's "African Waltz" – and other tracks include "Blue Brass Groove", "Something Different", "The Uptown", and "Letter From Home". Wilkins outdoes himself on this one, really providing some strong swinging arrangements that work well with the complicated groove of the project – and in a way, the record feels more like Randy Weston or Melba Liston's at the helm.

Desmond DekkerDouble Dekker (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Trojan/Doctor Bird (UK), 1973. New Copy ... $12.99
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

✨✧ Percy FaithClair/Joy ... CD
Columbia/Vocalion (UK), 1972/1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
70s magic from Percy Faith – two albums presented here in their quadrophonic mixes! Clair is a really wonderful album from Percy Faith – part of a handful of sweet 70s sides that really had him sounding a lot more groovy than before! The album almost has a 70s soundtrack vibe at times – with a mix of electric elements amidst the fuller orchestrations – all in a nicely compressed way that's handled with the sort of production that must have made a record like this a real treat for the quadrophonic generation! There's a bit of vocals at times – mostly wordless – and the tunes themselves really shape the grooviness of the album – with titles that include "Clair", "Ben", "Sweet Surrender", "2001", "I Can See Clearly Now", "Summer Breeze", and "Superfly". Joy has the Percy Faith sound opening up in warm, mature modes for the 70s – still a fair bit of strings, but also maybe more of that careful couching of sound that could make 70s easy listening so different from the sound of a decade before! Some of the tunes here are a nice surprise – and include pop and soundtrack numbers that further take Percy into fresh territory – titles that include "Shaft", "This Way Mary", "Without You", "Diamonds Are Forever", "The Summer Knows", "An Old Fashioned Love Song", and "Gypsies Tramps & Thieves".

✨✧ Ralph RoblesTaking Over/Conquistando ... LP
Fania, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of our favorite albums ever from the Latin Soul generation of the late 60s – a totally tight, totally wonderful album led by trumpeter Ralphie Robles – a player who never seemed to make it past the decade on record, but who gave us a few amazing records like this one! Ralph's group is young, soulful, and very much on fire – with a lineup that includes Wilfredo Vasquez on second trumpet, Raymond Crevatas on tenor, and Norberto Cruz on piano – all romping hard with timbales, bass, and congas alongside – and vocals by Jose Piliche Elisiere and Eduardo Cox. The title cut is worth the price of the album alone – with amazing piano lines, and this hook that calls out all the imposters on the scene – laid out next to other strong cuts that include "Montuniando", "Mercie", "Eenie Meenie", "El Rey", "Happy", and "Perro Tramposo".
