John AddisonBridge Too Far (2CD version – with bonus tracks) ... CD
United Artists/Quartet (Spain), 1977. New Copy 2CDs ... $43.99
One of the greatest 70s moments from film composer John Addison – music scored for an all-star movie that was maybe a bit too all-star in the long run – but which features Addison really knocking it out of the park with the music! The vibe is more like the best 60s war dramas than you'd guess from the date – orchestrations that mix together bold passages of action with some more subtle dramatic moments – woodwinds and strings used by Addison with effortless ease, and often some nicely dark touches lurking in the deep backgrounds! Titles include "Human Roadblock", "Nijmegen Bridge", "Underground Resistance", "Before The Holocaust", "A Dutch Rhapsody", and "March Of The Paratroopers". 2CD edition – the original soundtrack album, plus a huge amount of bonus tracks – 35 more numbers from the original film recordings, wrapped up with very detailed notes as well!

All Star DrummersCats Go Wild ... LP
United Artists, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $13.99
"America's Greatest Drummers" in a percussion spectacular with a lot of loud exotic sounding tracks like "Boka Butu", "Ja Ki Lin", "Noma", and "Bambu". I don't know if we'd use the word "greatest" in describing the drummers – especially since the list of talents includes names like Sol Gubin and Don Lamond – but the set does have some nice playing by our man Charlie Persip, and isn't too bad from a lounge percussion perspective.

Burt Bacharach's fab score to a goofy crime film that starred Peter Sellers, and which features lots of groovy instrumental tunes from Burt, plus a vocal track sung by The Hollies, and even one by Peter Sellers!

John Barry & Nancy SinatraYou Only Live Twice ... LP
United Artists, 1967. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A great little James Bond soundtrack – written for one of the lesser-remembered Bond films, but filled with nice moments! There's a darker, moodier feel here than on some of Barry's other Bond scores – lots of stretched out tracks that have a bit more space than usual, and odd instruments punctuating the themes with an eerie, other-worldly edge that almost reminds us of some of the best Italian thriller work from the time. Nancy Sinatra sings a very moody title track – and other tunes include "Takana's World", "The Wedding", "Mountains & Sunsets", "A Drop In The Ocean", "Bond Averts World War Three", and "The Death Of Aki".

John Barry/Shirley BasseyGoldfinger ... LP
United Artists, 1964. Very Good ... $3.99
The soundtrack that put John Barry over the top – and to many, THE James Bond soundtrack! The album chills from the first notes of the haunting title theme – the majestic "Goldfinger", sung by Shirley Bassey with a tone that's as dangerous as a razor-sharp hat spinning through the air! Barry then takes over with some wonderful instrumentals – a blend of crime jazz, mood pieces, chase themes, and more – all peppered with that dark dark Bond theme that we love so much! Titles include "Into Miami", "Teasing The Korean", "Alpine Drive", "Bond Back In Action", "Gassing The Gangsters", and "Death Of Goldfinger". LP, Vinyl record album

One of the greatest of Barry's scores for the James Bond films – early enough to be raw, but confident enough to change up the mood nicely! The theme song features vocals by Tom Jones – and the rest of the tunes almost reads as a who's who of hipster influences, as so many of them have been taken up by other artists as band or album names. Titles include "Mr Kiss Kiss Bang Bang", "Thunderball", "The Bomb", "Chateau Flight", "Bond Below Disco Volante", "Death Of Fiona", and "Switching The Body". LP, Vinyl record album

15 classic tracks from Brass Construction – featuring mid 70s tunes lifted from the group's well-selling albums on United Artists! The tracks are a blend of disco, soul, and funk – with more than a bit of the horn-heavy groove that earns the group their "brass construction" name. Titles include "Movin", "Good News", "Changin", "What's On Your Mind", "Walkin The Line", "Ha Cha Cha (Funktion)", "Give & Take", "Help Yourself", "LOVEU", and "The Message". CD

CanFuture Days (gold vinyl pressing) ... LP
United Artists/Mute, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99 26.98
A mindblowing classic from Can – a set that has the group just getting better with each new record – to a point where it's the early 70s, and they're already in territory that's completely their own! The set features long tracks that spin out beautifully – driven that that rhythmic drive that the group always had at their best – so different than some of their contemporaries who might have gotten stuck in a sonic corner and never found their way out – while Can was bursting forth with energy and imagination that has kept them still sounding amazing as the decades move on! The set's the last one with the mighty Damo Suzuki, but fortunately not the last with the incredible drums of Jaki Leibezeit – and titles include the 19 minute jam of "Bel Air" – plus "Future Days", "Spray", and "Moonshake".

Les DeMerleSpectrum (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
United Artists/Get On Down, 1968. New Copy ... $6.99 14.98
One of the few albums ever cut by Les DeMerle, one of the hippest drummers of his time – made legendary thanks to legions of samplers and beatheads in the 90s! This is certainly one of Les' best ever efforts – a tight batch of funky big band tracks, with lots of nice grooves, and a very hip lineup that includes Frank Foster, Joe Beck, Chris Woods, Arnie Lawrence, and Charles Sullivan – all coming together in some great tunes that have very unusual rhythms, and a great format that puts the drums in line with the hip playing in the reed section! The album includes Les' famous version of "A Day in the Life", which begins with a monster funky intro – plus the cuts "Fusion – Pro & Con", "Underground", "Deflections 1, 2, 3, & 4", and "Aquarius". This great 2011 edition from Get On Down has 2 bonus tracks: "The Raven" and his version of "I Am The Walrus"! CD

EmbryoEmbryo's Rache (180 gram pressing) ... LP
United Artists/Loneos Editions (Netherlands), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $32.99 39.99
Early prog jazz genius from the mighty Embryo – and an album that perfectly fuses their love of world rhythms and electric jamming grooves – at a level that made them one of the coolest groups on the European scene at the time! Core work here is by a trio – and the percussion by Edgar Hofmann ranges from playful to hypnotic – with heavy drums and basslines crafting some incredible rhythms that spin out strongly – sometimes jamming, sometimes a bit looser – and often topped with great work on flute by Hansi Fischer, and this ultra-cool Leslie piano played by Christian Burchard – which has a nice fuzzy sound. The album's got lots of other sweet organ and mellotron lines – and Hofmann also plays soprano sax and violin as well – on titles that include "Tausendfussler", "Time", "Revenge", "Espagna Si Franco Finished", "Try To Be", and "Change".

United Artists, 1968. Sealed ... $9.99
One of the more famous western soundtracks of the late 60s – a set with a great theme that's well known by many – blended here with some other great spaghetti western elements and a bit more Hollywood drama! The "Hang Em High" theme has some nice twangy guitar touches backed with horns – and it's featured a few times on the album – and other tracks have a sparer, starker sort of dramatic feel, with strings emphasizing the mood in sweeps and swelling passages that are mighty nice. Titles include "Rachel", "Tumbleweed Wagon", "Bordello", and "They Took Me". LP, Vinyl record album

Mellow funk from Monk Higgins – and both cuts are instrumentals, mostly. "Little Mama" has a nice slow rolling sound, almost a War-like groove, with some electrified harmonica that sounds nice and sweet! "Trusting You" has a vocal refrain on the chorus, and kind of a churchy righteous sound. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Neil InnesHow Sweet To Be An Idiot (with bonus tracks) ... CD
United Artists/Grapefruit (UK), 1973. New Copy ... $12.99
An unusual solo album from Neil Innes – a set recorded in the space between his time in Bonzo Dog Band and The Rutles! As with both of those groups, Innes shows an amazing talent for recording a song that sounds straight, but which has a really offbeat vibe – sometimes song-style parodies that have all the chops of an original – other times more goofy material that really shows why Innes would end up being such a great comedic partner with Eric Idle! The instrumentation on the set is great – thanks in part to the lead guitar and organ lines of Ollie Halsall – and titles include "Momma Bee", "Immortal Invisible", "Topless A Go Go", "Feel No Shame", "Singing A Song Is Easy", and "How Sweet To Be An Idiot". CD version adds in 10 more bonus singles – including "Recycled Vinyl Blues", "The Age Of Desperation", "Oyster", "What Noise Annoys A Noisy Oyster", and "Lie Down & Be Counted". CD

Jay & The AmericansCapture The Moment ... LP
United Artists, 1970. Sealed Gatefold ... $5.99
Jay & The Americans make a surprisingly great shift here – moving into material that has a bit more of a roots rock vibe – which makes the album sound a lot deeper than most of their previous sets! The sound is maybe slightly out of time – a touch folk rock, with a vibe that would have been especially relevant in 1966 – yet it still does a lot for the group, and helps Jay find vocal territory that really fits the sound of his style. There's also one interesting bit of trivia here, too – a pre-Steely Dan Walter Becker and Donald Fagan provide arrangements on a few tracks – in a set of titles that include "Sleepy", "I'll Be Leaving Her Tomorrow", "Is There A World Without You", "Thoughts I've Taken To Bed", "No I Don't Know Her", "He Loves The Feeling", and "Learnin How To Fly".

Marv JohnsonMarvelous Marv Johnson ... LP
United Artists, Early 60s. Very Good ... $24.99
Early Detroit soul – by the great Marv Johnson, one of the first talents to be supervised by a young Berry Gordy! In fact, it could be said that everything Berry put into his work with Marv led to the formation of Motown – as Marv's mixture of smooth vocals and swinging soul really prefaces a lot of the work to come out of the motor city during the 60s, no surprise, since he's got some of the Motown crew writing songs for him! This set features a mix of standards, plus some better originals including "September In the Rain", "You Got What It Takes", "Summertime", "Come To Me", "Let Me Love You", "I'm Coming Home" and "Don't Leave Me".

Earl KlughDream Come True ... LP
United Artists, 1980. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Warm guitar magic from Earl Klugh – exactly the kind of record that helped cement his fame at the start of the 80s – making Klugh one of the leading guitarists of his time! The style's often a bit mellow, but never in a sleepy way – just a great extension of the mode that Earl first displayed on his debut – a way of doing more with less – leaving more than enough space between the notes to keep things soulful, and offering a nice contrast to some of the too-jamming fusion artists of his generation. There's often some sweet keyboards nestled in with the guitar – and Dave Matthews handled all the arrangements, so you can bet there's a tight, soulful feel to the whole record! Titles include "Spellbound", "Doc", "Amazon", "I Don't Want To Leave You Alone Anymore", and "Message To Michael". LP, Vinyl record album

Ennio MorriconeThe Good, The Bad, & The Ugly (3CD set – with bonus tracks) ... CD
United Artists/Quartet (Spain), 1966. New Copy 3CDs ... $59.99
One of the first big moments of global fame for the legendary Ennio Morricone – and a record that still stands as one of his landmark albums all these many years later! The set's famous for its haunting theme – that "wah-wah-wah" melody that led to countless covers and samples over the years – but the whole thing's a lot more complex than just that tune – with lots of the same sense of space and brooding that Morricone brought to his music for Once Upon A Time In The West – with careful use of key instruments on a track by track basis, and these floating lines that almost signaled a whole new way of recording music for a film soundtrack. And yes, there's certainly key western elements like guitar or harmonica – but maybe more striking are all the points at which these obvious tropes disappear – to leave us with those really unique Morricone sounds that go way beyond music! Titles include "The Sundown", "The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly", "Marcia", "The Desert", "The Strong", and "The Trio". PLUS, this stunning 3CD edition might well be the most comprehensive ever – as it includes the original album, plus 63 more tracks from the film recordings – almost 3 hours of music, all of it pure Morricone genius!

Although not featured that prominently in the film, the band of Gerry Mulligan, Art Farmer, Bud Shank, and others were a pretty tight little group – even though it was strange to see this west coast whitebread group playing in scenes of jazz/crime/evil. The record's a nice one, though, and features some of the livelier playing you'll hear from the players. Tracks are long, and titles include "Black Nightgown", "Night Watch", and the raging "Theme From I Want To Live". LP, Vinyl record album

United Artists, 1959. Very Good- ... $11.99
The "who" in the title is Basie – as this was one of many late 50s outings cut by Basie sidemen, in an attempt to recapture the energy of his hit sound. And like many of those albums, this one's actually a shade more interesting than Basie sides from the 50s – as it gives the players more room to stretch out, and shows that they can groove well together in a more relaxed setting. Quinichette's the leader, and his tenor is excellent in this stretch of his career; Nat Pierce handled the arrangements and plays piano on the album; and other players include Al Grey, Harry Edison, Eddie Jones, Freddie Green, and Jo Jones. Titles include "Big D", "The Holly Man", "PQ", and "Like Who?" – and most tunes are over 5 minutes long. LP, Vinyl record album

United Artists/Quartet (Spain), 1972. New Copy ... $24.99
An American film – directed by Billy Wilder and starring Jack Lemmon – but one with a distinctly Italian-styled soundtrack, thanks to the music of Carlo Rustichelli! Rustichelli scores the film with a style that's quite like his early 60s work for Italian films – warmly romantic, with some nice old school touches – all served up in a nice blend of light strings, easygoing rhythms, and some moody touches on keyboards that almost feel like theremin! Tracks are mostly short, some of them sprightly – to fit the comedic mood – and a few have some more traditionally Italian themes too. Titles include "Cha Cha Cha", "The Morgue", "Miss Piggot", "Coffee & Croissants", "A Burial Front The Sea", "Permesso", and "Wendell & Pamela". CD features 5 bonus tracks too! CD

Alive, and plenty lively – one of our favorite albums ever to feature the team of Al Cohn and Zoot Sims – and one that has them really stretching out a lot more than usual! The album's got a format that's quite different than the tightly-reigned sound of Sims and Cohn on other dates – as all the four tracks here run for longer than nine minutes – really allowing lots of room for solo space – and some great interplay between the reedmen too! Phil Woods joins the twin tenors on alto for two tracks – and the rest of the group features Mose Allison on piano, Nabil Totah on bass, and Paul Motian on drums. Titles include "Lover Come Back To Me", "It Had To Be You", and "Wee Dot". LP, Vinyl record album

TrafficJohn Barleycorn Must Die ... LP
United Artists, 1970. Very Good ... $9.99
Maybe our favorite album ever from Traffic – a set that has the group coming back together, after a fracture that took them in separate musical directions – reformed with a sound that's very different than before! The tracks are longer, and have more influences from both folk and jazz – a deeper sound and spirit, and one that also maybe reflects the loss of Dave Mason from the group! The trio really finds this amazing way forward, almost with some echoes of the hipper side of the Island Records underground – with Steve Winwood on vocals throughout, and on some mighty nice organ and piano – and Jim Capaldi on drums and percussion, and Chris Wood on a variety of saxes, flute, and percussion. Titles include "Glad", "Freedom Rider", "Empty Pages", "Stranger To Himself", and "Every Mother's Son". LP, Vinyl record album

United Artists/Avenue, 1971. Used ... $32.99
A sweet sweet set from the mighty War – and maybe the record that really has the group coming into their own! The record's got a stronger vocal presence than earlier War efforts, which is a really great thing – kind of a blend of sweet soul, heavy funk, and Chicano modes – all served up with this ultra-hip East LA sort of vibe that's way more interested in finding the best sweet spot in the music, than it is trying to figure out any labels for its groove! This approach rings out famously in the classic "Slipping Into Darkness" – which gets a 7 minute workout here – but the whole thing is great, and other titles include the seminal "Baby Brother", plus "Nappy Head", "Get Down", and "There Must Be A Reason". CD

WarWorld Is A Ghetto ... CD
United Artists/Avenue, 1972. Used ... $11.99
A monster from start to finish – not only the greatest album from War, but maybe one of the greatest mainstream funk albums of all time! The set's got a really unique groove – one that so many others tried to copy, but which was forged here first – in a wicked LA blend of Chicano funk, heavy organ lines, and soulful singing that sews the whole thing together perfectly. Just about every cut is upbeat and funky – rolling along at that low-rider pace that was War's lasting contribution to funk music – and the album features the huge hits "World Is A Ghetto" and "Cisco Kid", two of the brightest spots on radio funk from the 70s – plus classics like "Four Cornered Room", "City Country City", "Where Was You At", and "Beetles In The Bog".

A perfect example of the old adage that the funkier the band's name is, the less funky their music will be! Not that the group's really that bad or anything – they're just not the all-out party jam you'd expect from an ensemble with "ebony" and "funk" in their name. The groove is more smooth funky soul than anything else, and the record was produced by Carl Davis for his Chi-Sound imprint, and it's got a similar sound to some of the other groups on the label, like Manchild. Tracks include "Jive Du Du", "You Got Me Rushin", "Where You Lead", "Syncopated Madness", and "Watchin You, Watchin Me". LP, Vinyl record album

United Artists, 1967. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A nice little soundtrack – written by Dave Grusin for this dark and depressing 60s comedy that starred Dick Van Dyke and Debbie Reynolds! Grusin's score is extremely well-written – as great on the mellow and sad moments as it is on the more upbeat ones – almost going into Neal Hefti territory with its rich array of blue notes and understated jazzy phrasing – really great sounds from the budding young jazz talent! And sure, there's still a few nice groovers on the set that have a kitschy 60s feel – it wouldn't be a Dick Van Dyke film without them – and titles include "The Other Woman", "Before The Storm", "The Judgement", "Sudden Bachelor Blues", "Financial Counterpoint", "Tacos Por Uno Por Favor Jose", "The Scheme", "Sunday Fathers", and "Social Suburbia".

Tony Coe reprises his role on the theme – playing a nice solo in the middle – and titles include "After The Shower", "Ball's Caprice", "Move Em Out", "Simone", "Pink Panther Theme 78", and "Almond Eyes".

Oskar's harmonica playing is processed in a very cool way that almost completely hides its origins, and which gives it a lot of cool sounds and tones that you wouldn't expect.

A fiercely funky live set from Ike & Tina Turner – one that almost feels like some of the James Brown albums at The Apollo – given the expanded structure of the presentation, which also includes the whole Ike Turner universe! The show gets announced with this bold sense of pride – ala some of James' "showtime" announcements – and it begins with funky backings from The Family Vibe, who continue the groove throughout – then opens to the Ikettes singing on their own, before Tina takes the stage and makes the whole thing really come together! There's a great variety of material here – all of which gets a really sharp sound, thanks to the setting – and Ike and the crew really transform the tunes, and set them up perfectly for Tina's vocals to knock them out of the park. Tracks include "Let Me Touch Your Mind", "Shaft", "I Gotcha", "She Came In Through The Bathroom Window", "Dust My Broom", "I Wish It Would Rain", "Get Back", "Games People Play", "Annie Had A Baby", "Chopper", "River Deep Mountain High", and "Just One More Day".

A huge moment for War – maybe the group's biggest album of the 70s, but a set that still has them holding onto everything that makes the great! Like Earth Wind & Fire at their best, War have this way of staying strong and righteous, while still able to hit a hook – jamming one minute, but finding sharp focus the next – and balancing it all out over the course of an album so that there's a sense of depth that really keeps on going once the familiar cuts draw you in. In this case, the familiar cuts are giants – the stunning Latin funk gem "Low Rider", which became an anthem for a generation, and the radio hit "Why Can't We Be Friends" – mixed with other nuggets like the jazzy "Don't No One Get You Down", the funky "Heartbeat", and the cuts "Lotus Blossom", "Smile Happy", "So", and "Leroy's Latin Lament".

Titles include "Babe's Blues", "Little Niles", "Earth Birth", and "Pam's Waltz" – all done in the full-group versions that have an angular, Monk-ish quality – and which represent one of the strongest statements in modern jazz at the end of the 50s!

The record was one of Womack's first to be entirely recorded on the west coast – and has these core grooves that come from the great Wah Wah Watson on guitar and Sonny Burke on keyboards – both players who bring in sharp edges, but can also lay back in a groove as well – helping Bobby perfectly balance funky impulses and mellower moments throughout. There's a sophistication here that really shows the continuing growth of Womack as a musical visionary – and titles include "Everything's Gonna Be Alright", "Daylight", "Love Ain't Something You Can Get For Free", "I Feel A Groove Coming On", and versions of "I Wish It Would Rain" and "Something You Got".

United Artists/FTG, 1977/1978. Used ... Out Of Stock
2 classics from Brass Construction – back to back on a single CD! III is the third killer from Brass Construction – served up in that fantastic Randy Muller groove! The group's a bit one, but they've got a tightness that's really incredible – horns, bass, keys, and drums all focused together perfectly – hitting a pulsating rhythmic line that's perfect for the dancefloor, yet still funky enough to keep up with their roots. The vocals crackle nicely on the best cuts – sung together in an ensemble mode that's not really harmony, but has a fullness that supports the themes of the lyrics nicely. Titles include "Celebrate", "Get It Together", "Love", "Top Of The World", "Happy People", and "Wake Up". Next up is the group's fourth album, titled (you guessed it!) Brass Construction IV – and although they may not be naming their albums too creatively, that's A-OK with us, given the strength of the grooves on this set! Brass Construction and the amazing Randy Muller do it again – somehow managing to fuse a very large group into an incredibly tight sound – one that rivals that of smaller combos of the time, and which keeps things sharp and funky even over the course of some longer extended tracks. Muller's talents for scoring the horns are a big part of the success of the set – but the wicked guitar, bass, and keyboard bits totally help too! Titles include "One To One", "Help Yourself", "Perceptions", "Night Chaser", "Sweet As Sugar", "Get Up", and "Starting Tomorrow". CD

United Artists/RPM (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
Great work from the second chapter of The Spencer Davis Group – the time immediately after Steve Winwood left to form Traffic, and the combo stepped forward into some even headier music of their own! This period of the SDG isn't nearly as well known as their early hits – and the box set is a really surprising revelation overall – music that has some of the R&B currents of the earlier group, but which is also infused with a headier, trippier style too – not just in the instrumentation, but in the way the records are put together – with cool elements that space things out slightly, but never get too indulgent! The mix is a bit like that on the earliest work of The Move – or that shift that Small Faces were taking after moving to the Immediate label – and as with previous work from the Spencer Davis Group, there's as much great Hammond on the tunes as there is guitar, thanks to the talents of new member Eddie Hardin. Some of the best cuts almost hit a freakbeat mode – with a very cool mix of mod and psych – and the 3CD set features the full albums Funky and With Their New Face On – plus material from the Round The Mulberry Bush soundtrack, lots more singles, some BBC sessions, and even some alternate and unreleased tracks too. 68 tracks in all – titles that include "Letters From Edith", "Time Seller", "Taking Out Time", "After Tea", "Sanity Inspector", "What A Way To Die", "Firefly", "Magpie", "Groove Extra", "The Girls Song", "Don't Want You No More", "Der Wassermann", and "Picture Of Heaven".

United Artists/EMI, Late 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A great collection of the first wave of work from late 70s Detroit harmony group Enchantment – the best of their recordings for United Artists, and a set that's put together with a real focus on the group's mellower tracks! Like The Dramatics at the time, Enchantment had a newly sophisticated approach to vocal group harmonies – able to work with smoother, tighter arrangements, but not in a way that took away the focus on the sublime vocal work that made the group so great in the first place. The tracks here are a wonderful blend of the personal and professional – and even when a bit of a groove sneaks into a few of the tunes, there's still a warmly crackling vocal approach that's just as great as indie soul work from a few years back. Titles include "Gloria", "Silly Love Song", "Trying To Get Over", "Where Do We Go From Here/Journey", "Thank You Girl For Loving Me", "If You're Ready Here It Comes", "It's You That I Need", "Sunshine", "Dance To The Music", and "Come On & Ride".

The record's got some wonderful arrangements by Riley Hampton – who worked with Jackson on his earlier sessions for Okeh – and the record recasts Walter as a smooth modern singer with an adult approach, kind of in the same style as Teddy Pendergrass in the late 70s. Includes "Good To See You", "We Could Fly", "Open Up Your Heart", "If I Had My Way", "I Won't Ever Remember Losing You", and "Time".

✨✧ John Barry/Elephant's Memory/The Groop/NilssonMidnight Cowboy (2CD version – with bonus tracks) ... CD
United Artists/Quartet (Spain), 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A sublime soundtrack from John Barry – common, to be sure, but also a wonderfully-crafted set that goes way beyond the stereotypes of his work for the James Bond films! The record is probably best known for Nilsson's famous version of the Fred Neil tune "Everybody's Talkin" – which is great in itself – but it's Barry's own work on the title theme that we totally love. "Midnight Cowboy" is a darkly turning slowly pondering tune that will haunt us until the day we die – performed here on the original number with a sad-tinged harmonica that unites both the country of Joe Buck's roots and the sleaze of the love generation. The tune's great – and is matched here by the whimsy of "Florida Fantasy", and the Barry tracks "Fun City" and "Science Fiction". But also, Barry acted as the overall music director for the film – and used some tracks from the hip group Elephant's Memory, plus others by The Groop – but offbeat acts who really fit the spirit of the film. The record's almost worth it just for the cut "Old Man Willow", a really tripped-out longer track from Elephant's Memory – swirling around in organ and hippie vocals, and oddly echoing the main Barry theme of the set at times! This stunning 2CD set features a massive 42 tracks in all – the original album, which features bonus tracks by Barry, Lesley Miller, Nilsson, and The Groop – plus 23 more tracks from the film score – which really expand on all the cool touches that Barry brought to the instrumentation!

✨✧ Bob BrookmeyerKansas City Revisited (180 gram pressing) ... LP
United Artists/Pure Pleasure (UK), Late 50s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A very unusual session – especially considering Bob Brookmeyer's more modernist modes of the 50s! This album has Bob going back to roots you might not guess that he had – picking up bits of a Kansas City sound that (as he tells in the liner notes) clearly inspired him in the early days, and which is presented here surprisingly well by a septet that includes Bob on valve trombone, Al Cohn and Paul Quinichette on tenor, Nat Pierce on piano, Jim Hall on guitar, Addison Farmer on bass, and Osie Johnson on drums – all playing long and lean on some real Basie-styled numbers. Quinichette's presence really sets the tone for the record, and seems to pull out earthy qualities in the other players that we didn't even know they had – and on 2 numbers, Big Miller delivers some bluesy vocals as well. Titles include "Jumping At The Woodside", "A Blues", "Blue & Sentimental", and "Moten Swing". LP, Vinyl record album

BGO/United Artists (UK), 1963/1966. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
2 brilliant albums from Garnet Mimms – one of the greatest soul singers of the 60s, and an artist you can never have enough of! Garnet's albums from the 60s are all great – and unlike his contemporaries, he always recorded full LPs with all great songs, a wealth of original material, and not a bit of filler. This means that the set's got 26 tracks that may well be a "best of" for Garnet – as each track sparkles as much as the next, with Garnet's roughly-hewn vocals stretching out over sweet uptown arrangements by Jerry Ragovoy and Garry Sherman. We couldn't hope for a better batch of 60s soul tunes – and titles include "Don't Change Your Heart", "Looking For You", "It's Just A Matter Of Time", "One Girl", "Baby Don't You Weep", "So Close", "Anytime You Want Me", "There Goes My Baby", "A Little Bit Of Soap", "Quiet Place", "Cry To Me", "Until You Were Gone", "Anytime You Want Me", "Thinkin", and "Prove it To Me".

United Artists, 1970. Near Mint- 2LP gatefold ... Out Of Stock
The fantastic first album from Hawkwind – a pure moment of genius, from a time when the group had so much to deliver, and hadn't yet succumbed to their own greatness! If you only know later work, the style here is maybe more closely tied to some of the more familiar late 60s modes from the UK – certainly nascent prog and trippy psych elements at play – but, as with Pink Floyd right at the start, these guys are really marking their own territory – in part by their inventive blend of electronics with soaring guitars, driving rhythms, and some especially great touches on alto sax. The whole thing's wonderful – a record that should have been huge at the time, and which has certainly gotten legendary status since then – and titles include "Hurry On Sundown", "The Reason Is", "Be Yourself", "Paranoia (parts 1 & 2)", "See As You Really Are" and "Mirror Of Illusion".

EnchantmentSoft Lights Sweet Music (with bonus track) ... CD
RCA/FTG, 1980. Used ... $11.99
The only RCA album from Enchantment – and a great little set that has the group stretching out from their earlier records on United Artists! The groove here is still awash in the great harmonies we've always loved from the group – and production is by Don Davis, who always has a great ear for preserving the core soul of any act like this – while also helping them focus their sound as well! The mix is quite similar to excellent work Don did with the Dramatics at the end of the 70s – and Enchantment really benefit with a similar ear for a bouncy groove, and that great Davis way of knowing just the right point when to slow things down on an album, too. Titles include "Settin It Out", "I Believe In You", "Moment Of Weakness", "You & Me", "I Can't Be The One", "Soft Lights Sweet Music", and "I Can't Fake It". CD features a bonus 12" mix of "Settin It Out". CD

ExcitersExciters ... LP
Roulette, 1965. Sealed ... $49.99
Although we don't normally dig some of the sweeter 60s girl groups, we love The Exciters! Lead singer Brenda Reid has one of the most amazing voices in soul music – filled with rough sexy tones that always grab our attention, even when the lyrics shouldn't – and this album's one of the group's rare few full-length recordings. The album was the group's first after leaving United Artists – where they had scored bit with their oldies hit "Tell Him" – and although that cut's not on this album, the record's probably an even more compelling batch of soul tunes than anything the group had previously recorded. Reid's lead vocals are sublimely backed by harmonies by two other ladies, and the nicely-placed baritone of Herb Rooney – and the styles run from uptown soul to mellower ballads. Tracks include "That's How Love Starts", "Something To Shout About", "I Knew You Would", "Run, Mascara", "My Father", "I Want You To Be My Boy", and "Are You Satisfied". LP, Vinyl record album

FalconsWorld's First Soul Group – The Definitive Falcons (4CD set) ... CD
History Of Soul (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 4 CDs ... About May 28, 2021
A treasure trove of work from one of the hippest, coolest vocal groups ever – a Detroit group whose members included later solo stars Wilson Pickett, Eddie Floyd, and Mack Rice – and whose work was a big part in the development of soul music in the 60s! The Falcons started out with more familiar doo wop harmony modes, but held together over the course of a number of excellent recordings to really evolve – having an undeniable impact on the group sounds that Motown would later take to the bank – but maybe doing them with an even more heartfelt, powerful style overall. There have been other Falcons reissues on the market over the years, but this 4CD set is the first one we've seen to cover so much ground – 114 tracks that include their recordings for Lupine and United Artists, plus other tracks for labels like Mercury and Atlantic, where the group only recorded a few cuts – all brought together here in a stunning package that even includes demos, too. The booklet is very big – over 30 pages – and includes full notes on the group and its members, plus discographical information – and lots of photos and label scans too! CD

Eddie HollandIt Moves Me – The Complete Recordings 1958 to 1964 ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 22.99
A beautiful collection of all the great and rare material Eddie Holland cut as solo singer in the late 50s and early 60s – including the incredible early Motown material, plus tracks he cut for Mercury, Kudo, Tamla and United Artists! Of course Eddie Holland is best remembered for uber-legendary work as producer, composer and arranger with the Holland-Dozier-Holland super soul unit – for damn good reason, but it's his early work as singer is way too strong to be considered a mere footnote to his greater legacy. Many of the cuts were written and produced by Berry Gordy, along with numbers written and produced by Brian Holland and Lamont Dozier, some recorded more famously by later acts, so what you truly have here is the foundation for great things to come – it's beautiful stuff that shines brightly in its own light. Eddie's a solid singer and the songs are terrific, formative stuff that's a pivotal bridge from earlier R&B to massive soul. 56 tracks on 2CDs: "Little Miss Ruby", "Will You Love Me", "Just A Few More Days", "It's Not Too Late", "Just Ain't Enough Love", "Brenda", "Baby Shake", "Magic Mirror", "If Cleopatra Took A Chance", "Action Speaks Louder than Words", "Bashful Kind", "Too Late To Cry", "Happy Go Lucky", "Pretty Little Angel Face", "Day Dreamer", "Rain And Thunder", "I Like Everything About You", "Happy Days" and many more. This set goes deeper than any compilation we've seen of Eddie's recordings, too, with a number of previously unissued Mercury recordings. CD

OrgoneKillion Floor ... CD
Ubiquity, 2007. Used ... $11.99
A monstrous debut from one of the heaviest acts we've heard in years – LA's Orgone, easily one of the most up-and-coming funky combos around! Although Orgone share a bit with some of the leaner deep funk groups who've cropped up in the past decade or so, they've also got a sound that's a bit more advanced overall – sort of that second-generation approach to funk that hit the scene by the mid 70s, as some of the bigger funk acts like Black Heat or War moved out of the indie scene and really started to hit a wider audience! That doesn't mean that Orgone's commercial at all – because they've got a sound that's still as sharp-edged as any smaller group – but with a lineup that's quite large, they're able to encompass a very wide range of soulful styles – gritty 45 riffing, slinky Chicano-styled grooves, Afro Funk, tighter soul tracks, and lots lots more – all carried off with perfection throughout. The album feels like some lost masterpiece on Fantasy, or possibly some overlooked early 70s major label funk set on WEA or United Artists – and titles include "Who Knows Who", "I Get Lifted", "Funky Nassau", "Lone Ranger", "Prism Break", "Crabby Ali", "Duck & Cover", "Dialed Up", "Said & Done", "Hambone", "It's What You Do", "Do Your Thing", and "Sophisticated Honky".
