Barons, Dominoes, Queenettes, & OthersRoots – Rhythm & Blues ... CD
Folkways, 1966. New Copy Gatefold ... $12.99 16.98
A weird little album from the Folkways label – one that features a bunch of 50s-sounding R&B tracks, but packaged almost in an ethnographic style – as if commercial American music was being examined from an outside scientific source! Given that the date of the album is 1966, and most of the work has a sound from a decade before, the approach can be somewhat excused – but honestly, much of the material here would have done great on a commercial label as well – especially some of the more soul-based material. There's a great array of stuff here – and titles include 3 tracks by The Barons – "There's A Dream For You", "Until The End", and "I Can Jerk All Night" – plus "Don't Mistreat Me" by The Queenettes, "Baby Fat" by The Dominoes, "There Is Something About My Girl That Is Mighty Sweet" by Dave Bonds, "The Eel" by Johnny Larand & The Internes, and "A Fool In Love" by Naomi Bradley. CD

✨✧ Jimmy James & The VagabondsNew Religion/London Swings/This Is Jimmy James & The Vagabonds/Open Up Your Soul (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Pye/BGO (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99
Four classic albums from this hip British soul group – issued here in a single set, with bonus tracks too! First up is New Religion – a record that was also released in America by Atlantic Records. Although they were a UK soul act, Jimmy James and The Vagabonds were a perfect match for the Atlantic soul stable of the 60s. The group had a smooth group style that was partly uptown, partly northern soul – as clearly illustrated in this album, which is divided up into a "mood red: you feel like leaping" side, and a "mood blue: you feel like digging deeper" side. The band chose some good material that really helps them maintain a solid socking soul sound – including "The Entertainer" and "Ain't Love Good, Ain't Love Proud" by Tony Clarke, "Ain't No Big Thing" and "I'm Just A Fool For You Girl" by Gerald Sims, and "Little Boy Blue" and "People Get Ready" by Curtis Mayfield. Also features "Come To Me Softly", a sweet dreamy ballad by Jimmy, and kind of a bit crossover hit for the boys. London Swings is two-sided monster – as the album was originally split with work from the Alan Bown Set too! Here, the CD features just the live material from the soul group – a smoking performance from Jimmy James & The Vagabonds – one that goes way past the sweetness of their hits, and which has a crowd-pleasing, party-hearty approach to soul that's really great! Jimmy and the group serve up versions of "Sock It To Em JB", "That Driving Beat", "Ain't Too Proud To Beg", "You Don't Know Like I Know", and "Don't Know What I'm Gonna Do". This Is Jimmy James & The Vagabonds is a record that featured some crossover tracks with New Religion – but the set here just features the exclusive cuts – including "I Feel Alright", "I Can't Get Back Home To My Baby", "Never Like This Before", "I Don't Wanna Cry", and "You Showed Me The Way". Open Up Your Soul is a record with a really wonderful sound – the deeply soulful vocals of Jimmy James & The Vagabonds, mixed with rich arrangements handled by Nicky Welsh, and produced to perfection by Brit maestro John Schroeder! The record's got the sophistication of some of the Richard Evans productions over at Chess/Cadet at the same time – and, no surprise, the group lead off with a great cover of The Dells "Wear It On Our Face" – then roll into cuts that include "Cry Like A Baby", "Good Day Sunshine", "Four Walls", "Everybody Loves A Winner", "If You're Gonna Love Me", and "Open Up Your Soul". CD also features 7 more bonus tracks from singles – including "Why", "Bumper To Bumper", "Close The Door", "Give Us A Light", "I Wanna Be your Everything", "Hungry For Love", and "Don't Know What I'm Gonna Do".

VariousLoving On The Flipside – Sweet Funk & Beat Heavy Ballads 1969 to 1977 ... LP
Now Again, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2LP ... $19.99 24.98
Mellow soul heaven – and one of the greatest compilations of this style we've ever heard! This is exactly the kind of laidback, tripped-out soul we totally love – a host of rare ballads and love songs pulled from the 45 underground of the late 60s and early 70s – sometimes by groups who are better known for funky tracks, other times by overlooked harmony groups and solo singers who rival the greatness of east coast artists like The Moments or Whatnauts! Titles include "I Don't Think I'll Ever Love Another" by Darling Dears, "Slippin Around" by Thomas East, "Since You've Been Gone" by Little Janice, "Love" by Black Conspirators, "What Am I Waiting For" by Black Exotics, "Who Do You Think You're Fooling (part 1)" by Symphonic Four, "I'll Find A True Love" by Lee Bonds, "Young Girl" by Jazzie Cazzie & The Eight Sounds, and "Is It Me You Really Love" by Black Velvet.

✨✧ VariousAnother Banana Split Please – More Gems From The Good Old Summertime ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great set of tracks to celebrate the summer – mostly music that predates the big wave of beach and surf rockers of the 60s, and which show that there was still plenty of joy about the warmer months of the year during previous scenes in the postwar years! As with the earlier volume, the music here is in a variety of different styles – early rock and pop, straight out vocals, bits of jazz, and even some exotica too – all laid out in a mighty long list of songs that provide the perfect soundtrack for a sunny summer afternoon! The whole thing's handled with the usual Bear Family strengths of presentation and quality sound – and titles include "Here Comes Summer" by Jerry Keller, "Summer Is Here" by The Pals, "Dark Dark Sunglasses" by The Kittens, "Bikini" by The Bikinis, "Sea Nymph" by Les Baxter, "Sealed With A Kiss" by The Four Voices, "This Is The Night" by Larry Tamblyn, "Keeping Cool With Lemonade" by Nick Noble, "Soda Pop Pop" by Vince Eager & The Vagabonds, "Surf Bunny" by Gene Cray & The Stingrays, "Everybody Outta The Pool" by The Lifeguards, and "She Takes Sun Baths" by Sammy Salvo. 33 tracks in all!

Fela & Africa 70VIP ... LP
Knitting Factory, 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
A searing live set from Fela Kuti & Afrika 70 – a long album-length jam, recorded in Berlin – with the group really going to town in instrumental frenzy topped with very righteous lyrics! VIP doesn't have the usual meaning here – as it stands for "vagabonds in power", and is a searing attack on the Nigerian government at the time – one that has plenty of power from a lyrical perspective, but which really soars to the heavens as Fela and the group stretch the whole thing out over riffing guitar, driving percussion, and some incredible horn solos too!

Thin LizzyVagabonds Of The Western World ... CD
Deram, 1973. Used ... $6.99
Maybe the first true moment of greatness from Thin Lizzy – a record that really has them coming into their own, with a sharpness that really points the way at their later classics – and that unique approach that has Phil Lynott standing out as one of the most unique singers of his generation! There's still a bit of a bluesy undercurrent at the start, but as the album comes together some really tremendous songs emerge – tuneful yet rocking, and with a surprising undercurrent of soul as well. Titles include the classic "The Rocker", the great "Mama Nature Said", and "The Hero And The Madman", "Vagabond Of The Western World", and "A Song For While I'm Away". CD

Fela & Africa 70VIP/Authority Stealing ... CD
Barclay/MCA, 1979/1980. Used ... $6.99
Two albums on one CD – and they both have killer long tracks that are released here in their entirey, without the cutting up that you'd get if they were split out over both sides of an album. "V.I.P." stands for "Vagabonds In Power", and the track was recorded live by Fela before a very enthusiastic audience in Berlin. It's great to hear him working in this live setting, and the track starts with a nice spoken introduction before leaping into a guitar-based groove. "Authority Stealing" is another long one, with the band's usual vamping and off-kilter horn section, and some amazing spacey electric piano solos that sound as if they might have been laid down by Sun Ra! Remastered, and very nicely packaged! CD
