Lowell FulsomTramp/Soul ... CD
Kent/Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $9.99 18.99
2 classic Lowell Fulsom albums – back to back on one CD! Tramp is 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. Tracks include "Two Way Wishin", "Back Door Key", "Year Of 29", "Pico", "Goin' Home", and "Black Nights". Soul is more bluesy work from Lowell Fulsom – not as funky as his Tramp album, but from the same period, and still pretty darn nice! 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. Titles include "Shattered Dreams", "Talkin Woman", "Black Nights", "Sittin Here Thinkin", "Every Time It Rains", and "My Aching Back". 24 tracks in all! CD

VariousCan You Feel It – Modern Soul, Disco, & Boogie 1976 to 1986 ... LP
Tramp (Germany), Late 70s/Early 80s. Sealed 2LP Gatefold ... $38.99
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.

Tramp (Germany), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $12.99 18.99
A killer collection of upbeat soul and dancefloor grooves – and one that goes way way deeper than even the hippest collections of disco rarities! The Tramp label has given us plenty of great funk collections over the years – and with this set, they turn their well-trained ear towards the world of obscure club and disco singles – not just American rarities, but some great gems from around the world – all presented as a completely fresh collection of groove-heavy numbers, most of which are completely new to our ears! The compilation features detailed notes on each selection – which is great, because most are so obscure, we knew nothing about them at all – and titles include "Put The Music In Your Ear" by Cirt Gill & The Jam A Ditty Band, "Love Me" by Mr Maurice, "Dear Wendy" by Dancer, "Lover's Fantasy" by Phoenix, "Medicine Man" by Grayson Street, "The Wrong Side Of Me" by The Fantastic Shakers, "Bump & Run" by Harry Hann, "Meltdown" by Maxwell, "Godzilla" by Mabin Brothers Band, "Can You Feel It" by Gangbusters, "Love Me" by Mr Maurice, "In Orbit" by Ambros Seelos Orchestr, and "Disco Jiver" by Tony Swamy & The Band Of Executives.

✨✧ VariousContemporary Funk – A Fine Selection Of Some Of Todays Grooviest Funk & Soul Bands From All Over The World ... CD
Tramp (Germany), 2009. Used ... $14.99
The coolest collection of modern funk we've ever seen – and one that goes way beyond the familiar names of the genre that sometimes show up too much on other compilations! This one really digs deep – and the tunes are often as rough and raw as the music of the 60s and 70s that inspired them – a true treasure trove of work from the contemporary deep funk underground, but mostly music that's not been in wide circulation around the globe. We've always trusted Tramp for their funky 45s – but we love them even more for making a record like this – really blowing our minds with a range of hard-hitting tracks that show us we still have plenty to learn about what's going on out there in the funky hinterland. Titles include "Izzy Come Izzy Go" by The Funk Revolution, "One Man Song" by The Qualitons, "Go Go Train" by Big Joe Louis & The Soul Igs, "Chicken Lickin" by The Fantastics, "Fallin In Debt" by DeRobert & The Half-Truths, "Stop The Madness" by Tynnes Well & The Magic Fountains, "Humpin" by The Unstoppable S Robinson & His Marvelaires, "Brasil No 7" by Ben Martin Trio, "Soul Pop" by Mauri Bailey, and "Hakusha" by The Neapolitans.

✨✧ VariousCountdown To Soul – 17 Brilliant Soul Funk Jazz & Folk Rare Grooves ... LP
Tramp (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s. Sealed 2LP Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
No need to count down to soul – because it's already here, and served up in a stunning array of rare tracks from the 60s and 70s! We've always loved the Tramp label for their superb take on classic funk – they've been funky 45 specialists right from the start – but this time around, they turn their mighty ears towards the deep underground of indie soul singles – and serve up some really unique cuts that we'd never have heard otherwise! There's a great sense of variety here – there's definitely a few funky cuts, but there's also some deep ballads, some sweet harmony moments, and even some unusual cuts that seem to have a style that's completely onto themselves – which furthers the sense of discovery in the set. We've heard a few of these before, but may are quite new to our ears – and titles include "Do Dat Stuf" by Spangle, "Lovin" by Holly Carroll, "Major Funky" by Ulysses Crockett, "I Don't Know Yet" by Don Patterson, "People Wake Up Before It Is Too Late" by The Chances, "How Tough It Was" by Jackie Johnson's Backbeaters, "Tell It Like It Is" by Rita MacNeil, "Sound Of The Wind" by John Brown, "Superjock" by Reuben Bell, "Here Tis" by Spider Martin, "Do The Airplane" by Mel Production Band, and "Silver Dollar Lady" by International Boogie Band.

VariousMovements Volume 10 – Compiled By Tobias Kirmayer ... CD
Tramp (Germany), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $12.99 16.99
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/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $26.99 29.99
A set that's every bit as funky as previous volumes in this excellent series – but one that also seems to add a nice soul jazz current too – serving up a fair bit of tracks that would have been right at home on some back room jukebox in some old school south side jazz club! Most of the numbers are short and tight – and represent the great jazzy side of the funky 45 underground – cuts that are as rare as the soul and funk tracks that others dig on 7" singles, but which offer up a nice indie take on territory that you'd normally hear on Blue Note and Prestige! Titles include "Blue Jamaica" by Bill Beau, "Viva Tirado" by Rudy Gutierrez, "Big Boy" by Vince Mance Trio, "Ain't It The Truth" by John Lemons, "Wildwood JC" by Jack Carson Combo, "Snatchin It Back" by Jimmy Wilkins, "Undun" by Rose & Eddie, "See How You Are" by Junkyard Angels, "Syrene" by Harry Hann, and "Breezy" by Natral Ridum.

VariousPraise Poems – A Journey Into Deep, Soulful Jazz & Funk From The 70s ... CD
Tramp (Germany), 1970s. Used ... $14.99
One of the coolest, hippest compilations we've heard in years – and a set that uncovers a whole new style of underground grooves from the 70s! The work here is definitely in the funk, soul, and jazz territory of other compilations – but it's also got a unique vibe of its own, too – surprisingly personal at times, which a genre-blending mode that often has jazz-based vocals mixing with funkier rhythms – which then often get odd arrangements and unusual production! The quality's almost a bit in Stark Reality territory – or maybe like some of the best Yesterdays New Quintet records from more recent years – with lots of super-dope elements in the rhythms and instrumentation, and this great vibe to the production that really opens up something new. A stunning set, really – one of the hippest musical discoveries we've heard in a long time – with titles that include "Alone Again" by Jorge Darden, "Tribute To Ruffian" by Innerflight, "Carefree" by Larry Covin, "Dragon Rock" by The PTS, "Let Me Down Easy" by Bold Breed, "Wait For Me" by Bobby Stroup, "Black Velvet Soul" by Cookie Thomas & CT Band, "Cold Soul" by Gemstones, "Solemn Solitude" by Seeds Of Fulfillment, and "Strawberries Raspberries" by Don Hales.

VariousPraise Poems 4 – A Journey Into Deep Soulful Jazz & Funk From The 1970s ... CD
Tramp (Germany), 1970s. New Copy ... $12.99 18.99
Funky folk, jazzy soul, and lots more righteous sounds from the 70s – all served up here in a massive fourth volume of this wonderful series! Praise Poems virtually defines a genre unto itself – music that's between spaces, scenes, and styles – and which borrows from the best around the edges, then makes something rich and new in the process – as you'll hear from the assortment of ultra-rare cuts on the set! This is music we never would have discovered otherwise – and we dig through a lot of obscure indie records from the 70s – and the way the tunes work together is perfect, and really presents a color-blind approach to the new range of hip sounds that was bubbling in the underground in the years after the summer of love. And don't let the new age-styled cover put you off, because the music definitely has a bite – on titles that include "You Need Love" by The PTS, "Goodbye Rainbow" by Michael Dues, "He Is Gone" by Scott Williams, "Black Child" by Morris Dow & Eastern Sound, "Sittin High" by Joe Lee Wilson, "Swingin The Down Home Blues" by Tommy Palmer Trio, "Iceland Land Of The Micemen" by Nicodemus, "Bamboo & Rice" by Bill Osborn, "Muddy Water" by Arrie Mae Morton Trio, "Moon Child" by Scott Cunningham Band, and "Herby's Tune" by The Three Souls.

VariousPraise Poems 5 – A Journey Into Deep Soulful Jazz & Funk From The 1970s ... CD
Tramp (Germany), 1970s. New Copy ... $12.99 18.99
A record with a sound that's much richer than you'd expect from the cover – not the spare, stark image on the front – but a wonderfully deep array of sounds from the more spiritual side of the jazz spectrum! As with previous volumes, the collection of tunes here is amazing – tracks that are so underground, they've even been missed by collectors over the past few decades – gems that plumb the vinyl depths even beyond labels like Strata East, Black Jazz, or Muse – to show that there were some even more amazing musical moments taking place far out in the hinterland! Those three other labels would be a great comparison to the style here – especially the last two – as many of the cuts have an early 70s blend of electric jazz, funk, and maybe a bit of soul – sometimes vocal, sometimes instrumental – very deep all the way through. Titles include "Anita" by Scott Cunningham Band, "Move On" by Robert Cote with Orange Lake Drive, "Red Clay" by Gunn High School Jazz Reunion, "Chocolate Puddin" by Gate, "Down Here On The Ground" by Keither Florence, "Funky Resurgence" by Ulysses Crockett, "Al's Thing" by Al Walton Trio, "Walk With Me" by David Lee Jones Trio, "When She's Gone" by Anything Goes, "Empty Days" by Randy Larkin, and "Strange Things" by Tim James.

VariousPraise Poems 6 – A Journey Into Deep Soulful Jazz & Funk From The 1970s ... CD
Tramp (Germany), 1970s. New Copy ... $12.99 18.99
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.

Tramp (Germany), 1970s. New Copy ... $12.99 18.99
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.

Tramp (Germany), 1970s. New Copy ... $14.99 19.99
A tremendous entry in this great series that seems to go out of its way to prove that you can't judge a book by its cover – as the whole thing has nothing to do with flowers in a field, and instead overflows with rare jazzy cuts from the 70s! There's a very special vibe to the Praise Poems series – not jazz funk or spiritual jazz, but a breed that's somehow in between – often nicely compact, and with vocal cuts as much as instrumental – very obscure work, but always wonderfully groovy too – at a level that has you realizing that even if you think you know a lot about jazz, there's always a lot more to learn. Titles include "Make It Happen" by Penn Central, "Got To Turn Away" by Harve & Charee, "It's Time For Music" by Portraits In Sound, "Girl We Really Done It This Time" by Vision, "Welche Farbet Hat Der Wind" by Hans Hass, "They All Seem To Know" by The Menagerie, "Frozen Love" by Fang Buzbee & Sutton, "Song For A Girl" by Garndarf, "Around This Time" by Flash, and "Water Gardens Of The Moon" by Klaas Craats Six.

Tramp (Germany), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A soaring blend of rare club tracks from the glory days of the American disco underground – music that was cut in the deep shadows of the mainstream market at the time, and which has gone on to have a lot longer staying power too! The cuts here are all from very obscure releases on tiny labels around the country – most so small, the records were issued on 7" singles, not the usual 12" club DJ release – which has made them even more overlooked in the passing decades, given that so many collectors of this sort of music are digging for the larger format! Yet interest in rare club from the pre-house years has never been stronger – and a set like this is a great way to glimpse a scene that was out of reach even to most folks who were around at the time – a smoking set of 17 groovers that include "Can You Dig It" by Teakwood, "Bay Trippin" by Parnassus, "Come Along With Me & Party" by Monofide, "I Wanna Dance" by Compton Hodge, "Feel In" by The Unit III, "My Woman My Woman" by Joshua Jackson, "She's The One" by Nature, "Bronco Queen" by Van Buren, and "Sport City Rock" by Earl Turner.

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.

A dreamy exploration of south sea ideals from the great Les Baxter – a set that's got a more lightly drifting quality than some of his more percussive exotica albums, and which is awash in dreamy soundscapes penned by Les himself! The orchestrations are large and bold throughout – mixing strings and woodwinds almost in a soundtrack-y mode – but always with the light sense of interplay that makes Baxter's work so great. Titles include "Monkey Dance Of Bali", "Pearls Of Ceylon", "Tahiti: A Summer Night At Sea", "Hong Kong Cable Car", "Tramp Steamer To Singapore", "Spice Islands Sea Birds", "Harem Silks From Bombay", "Bangkok Cockfight", and "Sidewalk Cafes Of Saigon".

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

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

A really obscure little set from a group who recorded in Erie, PA at the end of the 70s – but who never issued this music at the time! Penn Central often have an approach that's tight and smooth enough to be on the coast – maybe indie AOR, with some nice slinky touches – but other tracks mix in some rougher currents that almost feel like indie work at the start of the decade – equally well-crafted original material, but with a nice sense of variety that really keeps things interesting – and which sounds nothing at all like 1979 in the rest of the world! The group had one cut – "Sometimes" – issued on the Pittsburgh Rocks compilation in 1980 – but here's all the rest of their music, with titles that include "Goodbye Morning", "See You Again Someday", "Make It Happen", "I'll Sing Your Song Goo", "Glass Angel", and "Want You To Stay". LP, Vinyl record album
(Recent German reissue on Tramp, limited to 500, still sealed with hype sticker.)

Cherry Red (UK), 1980. New Copy ... $12.99 16.99
The Photos look plenty new wave on the cover, and they sound plenty new wave within – maybe a bit of a UK nod to the sound of Blondie in the late 70s, but with some punkier elements of their own as well! The record's the sort that was maybe lost in the record racks at the time, but is a well-deserved fresh dig all these many years later – a great reminder that there was so much new music during this moment, some of the better groups never fully go their due – even if they did get a brief shot at fame with a bigger label release like this! Titles include "Do You Have Fun", "Irene", "Barbarellas", "Now You Tell Me That We're Through", "Look At The Band", "Friends", "Loss Of Contact", "All I Want", "I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself", and "She's Artistic". CD also includes an 8 track bonus album of far punkier demos, titled The Blackmail Tapes – which includes the tracks "Last Time", "With Honours", "Sex Object", "Lady Is A Tramp", "I Saw Her Standing There", and "Skateboard" – plus additional bonus tracks "Guitar Hero", "I'm So Attractive", and "Je T'Aime".

Enrico Rava, Sergio Fanni, Modern Jazz Gang, & OthersJazz In Italy ... LP
Honey Pie, Early 60s. New Copy ... $22.99 24.99
A legendary overview of jazz on the Italian scene at the start of the 60s – a great document of the new modes that was really setting the work of Italian jazz musicians apart from those in other parts of Europe – working with fresh ideas and a new conception that's completely sublime! The work here often has a great balance between structure and individual voice – and many numbers feature strong soloists who'd go on to great fame in a variety of settings – already graced here with talents that seem greater than their young years. Trumpeter Enrico Rava leads things off in a quartet with pianist Maurizio Lama, on a version of the tune "Line For Lyons" – and Lama follows with a trio reading of his own "Tema For Franco". Trumpeter Sergio Fanni is joined by the great Eraldo Volante on tenor and baritone on the tunes "Duo" and "Circeo". Later soundtrack artist Piero Umiliani serves up his "Picolla Suite Americana" – followed by the Modern Jazz Gang of saxophonist Sandro Brugnolini (with later sound library giants Enzo Scoppa and Cicci Santucci), on the tracks "The Drum Is A Tramp" and "Blue Mirria". Trombonist Dino Piana delivers the tune "Tempo Di Febbraio" with help from the great Gianni Basso on tenor – and the set also features a reading of "Bag's Groove" with Giorgio Azzolini on bass, Piano on trombone, and Attilio Donadio on alto.

Otis ReddingDock Of The Bay ... LP
Volt, 1968. Very Good ... $24.99 29.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny SmithDesigned For You ... LP
Roost, 1959. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
Johnny Smith really helped bring the sound of jazz guitar to a huge audience in the 50s – and an album like this is a perfect demonstration of his subtle genius on the instrument! At a time when so many others were working the guitar with a hard-edged sound, Smith moves into territory that's even more careful and precise – really making the most of the amplification on the strings, so that his touch can be gentle, but very pointed – allowing for lots of space between the notes, in a way that makes each of them mean even more than they might if strung together in a flurry. The group's a trio – with the bass and drums really giving Johnny a lot of room – and titles include "Three Little Words", "I'll Remember Clifford", "The Lady Is A Tramp", "Autumn Leaves", "Sometimes I'm Happy", and "Mood Indigo".

TurtlesTurtles Present The Battle of The Bands ... LP
White Whale, 1968. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $9.99
One of the coolest concepts ever for a 60s rock record – and maybe one of the standout sets from The Turtles! The album is set up as a "Battle Of The Bands" – one that has the group pretending to be a different ensemble from track to track on the record, either Natures Children, Fats Mallard & The Bluegrass Fireball, The Bigg Brothers, The LA Bust '66, and many other fake combos – all in a way that offers up a brilliant commentary on rock music in the late 60s! The effortlessness with which the group approaches the songs is fantastic – each number could have been a hit for the individual groups, were they real. One of our favorite tracks is the incredible "I'm Chief Kamanawanalea", played by the Royal Macademia Nuts – which has an incredible funky breakbeat all the way through! Another nice one is the funky cut "Buzzsaw", which has a fuzzy guitar groove that sounds a lot like "Tramp" – and other titles include "Surfer Dan", "The Last Thing I Remember", "Elenore", "You Showed Me", "Food", and "Chicken Little Was Right".

Modern/Kent/P-Vine (Japan), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... $18.99
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.

✨✧ Earl ScruggsI Saw The Light With Some Help From My Friends/Live From Austin City Limits/Strike Anywhere/Bold & New ... CD
BGO (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Four albums that show the continuing evolution of Earl Scruggs in the 70s – with a sound that's very different than his earlier music, and maybe even sharper instrumentation overall! First up is I Saw The Light – a record made after the famous banjo pioneer split with Lester Flatt, and was very popular with a young rock crowd – as evidenced by help he gets here from Linda Ronstadt and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band – not to mention Gary and Randy Scruggs, Vassar Clements, and Norman Blake! The mix of famous names and the growing Scruggs Review sound is great – and the record is an unlikely but important entry in the rise of country rock during the early 70s, with a very different quality than some of Earl's earlier work. We might well thank the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band – as the vibe is similar at times to their shifting music of the period – mixed with some Mike Nesmith inspiration, as a few of his tunes are included. Titles include "Lonesome & A Long Way From Home", "Silver Wings", "Never Ending Song Of Love", "Rock Sant & Nails", "Some Of Shelly's Blues", "It's A Picture From Life's Other Side", and "Propinquity". Features bonus tracks "The Cure", "I Saw The Light", "Fireball Mail", and "Tramp On The Street". On Live From Austin City Limits, the great Earl Scruggs takes on the growing Austin scene – which turns out to be a perfect fit for his Revue's blend of new country modes and older styles of instrumentation! Earl leads off the set with stunning work on banjo – maybe even sharper than earlier years – and the group lead off with some Dylan material at the start, showcasing some of their rock leanings – but soon bringing on other songs of their own, and making for this beautiful mix of key instrumental moments and lyrical passages. Lead vocals are from Gary Scruggs, and Randy and Steve Scruggs are in the group too – on titles that include "Nashville Skyline Rag", "I Shall Be Released", "Tall Texas Woman", "I Just Can't Seem To Change", "Black Mountain Blues", "Everybody Wants To Go To Heaven", and "The Swimming Song". Strike Anywhere is a mighty nice album from the great Earl Scruggs – recorded with his boys' Revue group, and a sound that really helps keep Earl's instrumentation fresh for the 70s! Years back, we never would have thought that mixing the legendary Scruggs banjo sound with keyboards would have worked – but the change here is a great one, as Earl makes the shift that a few of his traditional instrumental contemporaries were doing at the time – such as Vassar Clements or Bashful Brother Oswald – finding a new setting for the instruments that still shine out in the lead at all the best moments. Titles include a great remake of "Mandolin Wind" – plus "Muhammad Ali", "Bring It On Home To Me", "You Really Got A Hold On Me", "I Think Of You", and "Dreaming As One". On Bold & New, the great Chips Moman produced and recorded the record – a set that shows that move that Earl had made into country rock during the decade, delivered in the best possible hands! Vocals are from some of Earl's sons, and the man himself still gets gets in plenty of banjo solos too – as the group mix their own material with a few from Bobby Emmons, who plays organ, electric piano, and clavinet on the set. Titles include "The Cabin", "Our Love Is Home Grown", "That's Alright Mama", "Found Myself A New Love", "Games People Play", "Take The Time To Fall In Love", and "Louisiana Lady". CD

Kent (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Hardly the kind of music you'd want to keep in the basement – as the set's overflowing with classic soul from the 60s – especially the kind of underground nuggets we love so much! If we had to pick a style, we might say that the collection's heavy on Northern Soul rompers from the American indie scene way beyond Detroit – but there's also lots of other tasty flavors on here too, including some special west coast numbers and early funk tracks that really give the whole thing a great sense of variety – while still keeping to the upbeat, lively rhythms that make the set so great! Every track's a winner – and although most of these tracks never charted at the time, most have gone onto win big fame through constant circulation between DJs and collectors over the past few decades. Titles include "Sock It To Em Soul Brother" by Bill Moss, "The Horse" by Cliff Nobles, "Sign On The Dotted Line" by Gene Latter, "Peaches N Cream" by The Ikettes, "Tramp" by Lowell Fulsom, "I'll Never Forget You" by Marke & Chris Jackson, "Take It Baby" by The Showmen, "Ooh Wee Baby I Love You" by Fred Jackson, "Giving Up" by The Ad Libs, "With This Ring" by The Platters, "One Eye Open" by Maskman & The Agents, "Baby Please Come Back Home" by JJ Barnes, "Gotta Give Her Love" by The Volumes, and "Believe In Me Baby (part 1)" by Jesse James & The Dynamic Four.

A collection of classic country that's got way more to offer than the "depressing" in the title might make you think – not tracks that are purposely over the top and full of bad feeling – but instead the kind of well-crafted work that makes postwar country some of the most carefully emotive music of the time! The set's overflowing with themes of love and loss, but handled with a mature, honest, very human approach – never wallowing too much in depression, and instead often coming across with a slightly redemptive spirit in the realization of the loss. The set features 30 tracks in all – and titles include "Letter Edged In Black" by Hank Snow, "Teardrops & Empty Arms" by Texas Ruby, "A Church A Courtroom & Then Goodbye" by Patsy Cline, "Lonely Street" by Don Gibson, "Call Of The Wedding" by Goldie Hill, "There'll Be No Teardrops Tonight by George Jones, "Tramp On The Street" by Carlisle Brothers, "The Old Crossroad Is Waitin" by Rose Maddox, "Lonely Side Of Town" by Kitty Wells, "Are You Afraid To Die" by Stanley Brothers, and "I'm Reading Yaur Letter Again" by Wilma Lee & Stoney Cooper.

Octave/Telarc, 1961. Used ... Out Of Stock
A great Erroll Garner double-header – two 60s albums back to back on a single CD! First up is Dreamstreet – a record in which Garner grooves nicely, 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! One World Concert is a set with an ambitious title, but a nicely earthy feel – a live recording that features Erroll Garner's trio with Eddie Calhoun on bass and Kelly Martin on drums – stretching out strongly in front of a live audience. Titles include "Mack The Knife", "Misty", "Dancing Tambourine", "Happiness Is A Thing Called Joe", and "Sweet & Lovely". CD

Excellent work from Mel Torme – material recorded in the late 50s for Bethlehem Records – easily one of our favorite periods in the career of the Velvet Fog! 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".

✨✧ SupertrampCrime Of The Century ... CD
A&M, 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

John Benson Brooks with Cannonball AdderleyAlabama Concerto ... LP
Riverside, 1958. Very Good ... $11.99 14.99
A groundbreaking album – not only for Cannonball Adderley, but for the jazz concerto format, used to strong effect here in this excellent modernist composition by John Benson Brooks! The album's based on a number of historical and mythical southern themes – and although it gets a bit hokey at times, the work of Adderley and Art Farmer on the solo sections really opens up the piece and gives it a deep sense of soul. The setting is a drummer-less small group, with Barry Galbraith on guitar, Milt Hinton on bass, and Brooks on occasional piano – and themes include "The Loop", "Trampin", "Little John Shoes", "Milord's Calling", and "Rufus Playboy". LP, Vinyl record album
(Standard blue label Bill Grauer Productions pressing, RLP 12-276, with microphone logo and deep groove. Cover has some wear and aging, light fraying at the sides, and some splitting in the top seam with some small tape remnants.)

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

Juozas Milasius/Tomas Kutavicius/Dalius NaujokaitisLive At Willisau 1993 ... LP
No Business (Lithuania), 1993. Near Mint- ... $11.99
The core trio here steps out on their own at first, and are then augmented by work from the Lithuanian Young Composers Orchestra – an added quartet who really bring an intensity to the performance! Well, maybe that intensity is already there – but slightly muted – as the guitar of Juozas Milasius, piano of Tomas Kutavicius, and drums of Dalis Naujokaitis come together with a very spacious, open sense of understanding. Yet when the others come in – Vytas Labutis on saxes, and the other three on voice, plus all on cymbals, clapping, and "trampling" – there's a ferocity to the record that's undeniable. Titles include "Sailor's Nightmare", "Play Me", "Reflection Nebula", and "String Walker". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Various101 Northern Soul – 101 Of The Greatest Northern Soul Anthems (5CD set) ... CD
Universal (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used 5CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The title's no lie – as this sweet little set features 101 Northern Soul classics – a treasure trove of upbeat soul from the 60s – with lots of rare cuts, obscure groovers, and the kinds of tracks that always got more play on UK dancefloors than back home here in the US! For the price, the set is a hell of a collection – and features killer classics from labels that include Motown, Chess, Philips, MGM, and other vintage imprints – with a nice degree of overlooked cuts that have only been discovered by the northern scene in more recent years. Titles include "Til You Were Gone" by Frank Wilson, "Love Love Love" by Bobby Hebb, "Stop Her On Sight" by Edwin Starr, "What More Could A Boy Ask For" by The Spinners, "Can't Satisfy" by The Impressions, "I'm The One Who Loves You" by Darrell Banks, "Why Am I Lovin You" by Debbie Dean, "The Night" by Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons, "I Got A Feelin" by Barbara Randolph, "Heaven Must Have Sent You" by The Elgins, "Dr Love" by Bobby Sheen, "Trampoline" by Spencer Davis Group, "Nothing Left To Give" by Thelma Houston, "Baby I Miss You" by Tommy Good, "I've Been Blessed" by Bobby Taylor, "Look What You Done Boy" by The Lollipops, "Friday Night" by Johnny Taylor, "Baby I Love You" by Howard Tate, "Helpless" by Kim Weston, "Moody woman" by Jerry Butler, "There's A Ghost In My House" by R Dean Taylor, "Ordinary Joe" by Terry Callier, "Wade In The Water" by Marlena Shaw, "Drop In The Bucket" by Mary Wells, "Baby A Go Go" by Barbara McNair, "Love's Gone Bad" by Chris Clark, "Run For Cover" by The Dells, "Battened Ships" by Odyssey, "Nothing But A Heartache" by The Flirtations, "Sure Is A Lotta Woman" by The Isley Brothers, and "Keep On Lovin Me" by Francis Nero.

✨✧ Maria BethaniaDrama ... LP
Philips, 1972. Very Good Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Fantastic stuff – and perhaps the closest that Maria Bethania ever came to cutting a record in the Tropicalia mode! The album was produced by Caetano Veloso – and the arrangements are a mix of dark jazz-tinged tracks and others that have slightly larger orchestrations – in a manner that's a bit like the blend of styles that Gal Costa used on her India album, or some of those on Nara Leao's 1969 session with Rogerio Duprat! The sound is powerful and extremely evocative – and one almost gets the feeling that Caetano's working out an older aesthetic with Maria after his return to Brazil! Songs are penned by Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Luz Melodia, and others – and titles include "Iansa", "Trampolim", "Bom Dia", "Anjo Exterminado", "Negror Dos Tempos", "Ponto/Esse Cara", and "Drama". LP, Vinyl record album
