Roy AyersVirgin Ubiquity – Unreleased Recordings 1976 to 1981 (2LP's & CD) ... LP
BBE (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 2LP & CD ... On January 17, 2020
It's like a dream come true – 13 previously unissued recordings by Roy Ayers, all from the height of his glory years on Polydor! Roy's work from this time is some of our favorite ever – a burning blend of jazz, soul, and funk – handled with impeccable charm, and a level of soul that few other artists of the time ever matched. Roy's genius was strongly documented at the time by a series of excellent Polydor albums – but there was also a heck of a lot of great material that never saw the light of day, and which is every bit as great as the classics that we've come to know and love over the years. Hearing this set is incredible – like upping our already-massive appreciation of Roy's talents, and like finding a lost corner of soul music history that nobody's ever heard before. The tunes are all amazing – a great blend of jazzy soul, mellow soul, and dancefloor groovers – and the package is only the tip of the iceberg, from what we've been told! The full album does a great job to not cross over too much with the 12" singles previously issued in this "Virgin" series – and titles include "What's The T", "I Really Love You", "Sugar", "Mystery Of Love", "Green & Gold", "Brand New Feeling", "I Did It In Seattle", "I Just Wanna Give It Up", "Together Forever", "Boogie Down", "I Am Your Mind", and a great alternate version of "Mystic Voyage"!

Roy AyersVirgin Ubiquity II – Unreleased Recordings 1976 to 1981 (3LP's & CD) ... LP
Rapster/BBE (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 3LP & CD ... On January 17, 2020
The genius of Roy Ayers knows no end – and as this set of unreleased work from the 70s proves, Roy was always working at top form back in the day – even above and beyond his classic albums from the time! The grooves here are tremendous – funky, soulful, jazzy, and every bit as wonderful as the work that Roy did for his classic albums on Polydor – and in a way, the whole set's even tighter and heavier than any of Roy's full LPs, because it's a distillation of his sound from the time, hand-picked from the vaults with an ear towards the kind of timeless grooves that have been a huge influence on many worlds of music for years! You've never heard any of these tunes before, but we can promise you'll love them every bit as much as Roy's tracks on albums like Coffy, Vibrations, Mystic Voyage, and other classics – and the quality of the set only further pushes our jaw-dropping respect for the man! Titles include "Holiday", "Kwajilori", "I Am Your Mind (part 2)", "Touch Of Class", "Third Time", "Come To Me", "Wide Open", "Funk In The Hole", "Liquid Love", "Tarzan", "Sunshine (demo)", and "I Like The Way You Do It To Me".

Lalah HathawayIt's Somethin – The Virgin Years (Lalah Hathaway/A Moment/bonus tracks) ... CD
Virgin (UK), Early 90s. New Copy 2CD ... $12.99
A pair of wonderful albums from the young Lalah Hathaway – plus bonus tracks too! First up is the self-titled Lalah Hathaway – the first album from Donny Hathaway's soulful daughter – an album that began a legacy that's lasted plenty strongly on its own – even without such a great family pedigree! Lalah's got a nearly-classic style in her work that's a fresh departure from many other soul acts of this period – a style that's almost influenced by the Soul II Soul or Loose Ends groove of the time, but is a bit more mainstream – and which shows that Hathaway has a lot more to offer than a famous last name. Production and arrangements are by Gary Taylor, Angela Winbush, Craig T Cooper, and Andre Fischer – and titles include "Baby Don't Cry", "Heaven Knows", "Somethin", "Stay Home Tonight", "I'm Coming Back", "I Gotta Move On", and "Obvious". Next is A Moment – an overlooked second set from the lovely Lalah Hathaway – a record that got less circulation than her classic debut, but which still very much continues the groove! As before, Lalah's working with a number of different producers throughout – changing things up a bit, but still holding strong with a quality level that's better than most of her contemporaries – thanks to vocals that are there first, and hardly need any studio help at all – and which really unify the proceedings throughout. Titles include a great remake of "Family Affair" with excellent help from BEF – plus "Bad By Myself", "Lean On Me", "Separate Ways", "Better As A Memory", "Do You Suppose", "Rise", and "Let Me Love You". 2CD set features 12 bonus tracks – including "It's Somethin (radio mix)", "Heaven Knows (7" version)", "Baby Don't Cry (radio)", "Heaven Knows (Yvonne Turner rmx)", "It's Somethin (12" mix)", "Baby Don't Cry (crybaby club version)", "It's Somethin (smoove & sassy rmx)", "Night & Day", "Let Me Love You (bed time mix)", "Dreams Don't Lie (club)", "Separate Ways (stringapella)", and "Night & Day (acappella)".

Heaven 17Play To Win – The Virgin Years (Penthouse & Pavement/Luxury Gap/How Men Are/Pleasure One/Teddy Bear Duke & Psycho/mixes/demos/bonus tracks) (10CD set) ... CD
Virgin, 1980s. New Copy 10CD set ... $109.99 124.99
An insanely huge tribute to the genius of Heaven 17 – a group who never broke that big on these shores, but who were one of the hipper British electro pop acts at the start of the 80s! The group broke off from Human League right during their earlier, noisier years – then headed into territory that was a lot more overtly political, especially on their earlier releases – while still finding a way to play strongly on the clubs! These guys were maybe some of the first to bring Marxist ideals to the dancefloor – a trend that would continue in the UK strongly for the rest of the decade – but they're also tremendous pop producers too, and worked simultaneously as BEF (British Electric Foundation) to craft some excellent work with other artists. This huge 10CD package brings together just about everything the group did together – all five of their albums – Penthouse & Pavement, Luxury Gap, How Men Are, Pleasure One, and Teddy Bear Duke & Psycho – plus a full CD of 22 demo tracks from 1980, four more CDs of dance/single mixes that really helped spread the group's message, and lots more bonus tracks that include unusual a-sides and b-sides too – plenty of non-LP tracks to really round things out. The package is a big 12" by 12" – and features 157 tracks in all, plus a big booklet of notes! CD

Yma SumacQuintessence (Voice Of The Xtaby/Legend Of The Sun Virgin/Flahooley/Mambo/Inca Taqui/Legend Of The Jivaro/Fuego Del Ande) (3CD set) ... CD
Capitol/El (UK), 1950s. New Copy 3CD ... $19.99
A huge run of records from Yma Sumac – presented here in a box that collects just about everything she recorded for Capitol Records in the 50s! First up is Voice Of The Xtaby – legendary vocal work from the postwar years – some of the earliest recordings from the enigmatic Yma Sumac – an artist whose records really laid the groundwork for an entire generation of exotica records to come! Sumac's authenticity has been debated over the years – but there's no denying that she's got this incredible vocal range – a many-octave approach that almost makes her sound like a human theremin – as she works with exotic backings from Les Baxter to offer up a take on Peruvian roots, styled towards a 50s bachelor pad listener! Titles include "Xtaby", "Wayra", "Taita Inty", "Monos", and "Tumpa". Legend Of The Sun is early work from Yma Sumac – with that moody mix of other worldly vocals and semi-Latin instrumentation that made her a popular one with the early exotic crowd. Yma runs up and down the vocal scale, while Moises Vivanco leads the band in a set of crashing dramatic orchestrations with a Peruvian feel. Tracks include "Sunray Surita", "Mamallayi", "No Es Vida", "Ccori Canastitay", and "Kon Tiki". The package features selections from the album Flahooley – one of the more obscure Yma Sumac albums from the 50s – a Broadway production with a larger cast – and much more of a musical than Sumac's other records. Yma really stands out in the show, though – singing a few special numbers with music by Moises Vivanco – but the rest is familiar Broadway modes of the early 50s, penned by Sammy Fain & EY Harburg. Sumac titles include "Najala's Song Of Joy", "Najala's Lament", and "Come Back Little Genie Birds". Mambo is quite possibly our favorite album ever by the enigmatic Yma Sumac – thanks to some lively arrangements by Billy May, who gives the set a swinging jazzy groove! As you might guess from the cover, the style here is more in a Latin jazz mode than some of Yma's other more ethereal work – and that style turns out to be a wonderful fit for Sumac's incredible vocals – creating a batch of driving tunes that swing nicely, yet still have a spooky exotic sound on the top! Titles include "Bo Mambo", "Taki Rari", "Goomba Boomba", "Malambo No 1", and "Five Bottles Mambo". Inca Taqui is an early 10" LP – on which Yma Sumac sings chants of the Andes – and authentic or not, the sound's pretty darn great! The record's in the same format as her other early work for Capitol – tunes written by Moises Vivanco, who also conducts the backings in a dramatic early 50s style that's perfect for Yma's wonderful voice! And whether or not these tunes are actually the ones that all the cats in Peru were singing up in the mountains, they still sound pretty darn great as a key part of postwar exotica! Titles include "Incachao", "Llulla Mak'Ta", "Chuncho", "K'Arawi", and "Cumbe-Maita". Legend Of The Jivaro is one of Yma's more "historical" records – and the notes say that the album is "the rare plum of authenticity". We don't know if we'd go that far, but we can tell you that the record features Yma performing songs of the legendary Jivaro headhunters! Supposedly, Yma learned them in her "South American jungle-home", but we keep wondering why the headhunters took the time to teach her, when they could have been shrinking her head. Tracks include "Yawar", "Shou Condor", "Aullay", "Sumac Soratena", and "Hampi". Last up is Fuego Del Ande – one of the most obscure albums by vocalist Yma Sumac – and one of the most compelling too! The album has Yma working in the Andean style of her earlier 10" albums for Capitol – working with Moises Vivanco on a set of tunes that have a much more traditional and almost folkloric style than some of her work with Les Baxter. Titles include "Clamor", "Dale Que Dale", "Llora Corazon", "Gallito Caliente", "La Molina", and "Flor De Canela". CD

Jesse BelvinGoodnight My Love ... CD
Flair/Virgin, Late 50s. Used ... $4.99
Jessie Belvin's often talked about in reverent tones as a bridge between a number of different styles of 50's R&B and vocal soul, but it's not until you hear a great compilation like this one that you realize how fantastic his stuff really is. This excellent Ace set compiles tracks from his great early years at Modern, and even includes some stuff that he did with the vocal group The Cliques. The sound is deep warm LA R&B, with a touch of Charles Brown and Clyde McPhatter, but also a startling premonition of later soul artists like Jerry Butler. Beautiful stuff, with a wide range of tracks, including some unreleased material that's as good as the hits on here. CD

Virgin/Ryko, 1972. Used ... $9.99
The first truly great David Bowie electric guitar album – an all-out, power-driven set of tracks played by a group that included Mick Ronson and Tony Visconti! Bowie's in prime pre-Ziggy mode here – ripping into tunes that blister with dark energy that are some of the first truly dangerous songs he ever recorded – with this strong undercurrent of mania that follows some of the darker whimsy of his earliest records – set to searing sounds that would forever help Bowie cross over to audiences who might previously have thought him an arty wimp. The set includes classics like "Saviour Machine", "The Width Of The Circle", "All The Madmen", "Black Country Rock", "The Supermen", and the title track, "The Man Who Sold The World". Great Ryko pressing – with bonus tracks "Moonage Daydream", "Hang Onto Yourself", "Holy Holy", and "Lightning Frightening". CD

A key early moment for Cabaret Voltaire – a set that has the duo getting a bit more tuneful and song-based than before – yet still more than willing to experiment plenty with their sound! All the cool analogue electronics are still very firmly in place – and mixed with some mighty nice processed guitar riffs from Richard Kirk, and lots of dubby elements too – and the set also features some percussion and tablas that are used alongside electronic rhythms – often processed, but in ways that create an early undercurrent – almost like some of the Brian Eno rhythm experiments of the early 80s. Titles include "Do Right", "The Operative", "Digital Rasta", "Spies In The Wires", "Theme From Earthshaker", "James Brown", "Slammer", "Blue Heat", and "Sensoria". LP, Vinyl record album

D'AngeloVoodoo ... CD
Virgin, 2000. Used ... $2.99
Sweet and gritty soul from D'Angelo – who takes a huge step into deeper territory on Voodoo – and it's one of the most monumental records of its time! On one level, Voodoo works as a nicely stripped-down session with a very classic soul feel. Gone are the overzealous flourishes that sometimes overwhelmed his earlier songs, and in their place are some sweetly crafted vocal parts with a classic Marvin Gaye/Al Green feel. That warmth is probably what made Voodoo a massive popular success – but what makes it such a creative triumph are the darker undercurrents – hinting at a troubled soul struggling for spiritual truth. One of the rare cases in popular music when great art became music for the masses! Titles include "Left & Right (feat Method Man & Redman)", "The Line", "Spanish Joint", "Africa", "Feel Like Makin Love", "The Root", "Playa Playa", "Devil's Pie", and "Greatdayndamornin/Booty". CD

DweleSubject ... CD
Virgin, 2003. Used ... $1.99
A sparkling debut from Detroit's Dwele – a sweet vocalist in the Donny Hathaway tradition, but with a tight, beat heavy soul sound that glides between 70s soul jazz, mellowed-out Jay Dee synth hop groove, and the natural soul vibe ?uestlove brings to his productions! We first caught wind of Dwele on Slum Village's "Tainted" single, and that's a good indication of the sound you'll find on the debut. Mellow, trippy keys and sound washes drench the album from beginning-to-end, with Dwele's often deeply layered vocals weighing the bright, modern groove aspects of the sound with a rich sense of soul history. There's a slight 70s soul jazz vibe, too, in spots – a sophisticated studio groove with bright bass and some sunny, soulfully strummed electric guitar. Dwele finds some truly nice middle ground between the natural soul scene, modern groove, and the mellower beats and grooves of the best Detroit hip hop of recent years – a scene that Dwele indeed was a player in before finding his soul muse. Great stuff – similar enough to some of his contemporaries – but still wholly unique in Dwele's embrace of a bright, sunny, polished sound that still manages to maintain naturally soulful grit and grease! The title track is a classic – crackly, thumping beats, sweetly chiming keys, and capital M Moody vocals – and many others are nearly as strong! Includes "Truth", "Find A Way", "Day At A Time", "Subject", "Sho Ya Right", "Possible", "Money Don't Mean A Thing", the bonus track "Let Your Hair Down", and more. 15 in all on the CD. CD

Brian Eno at the crux of his career – hanging perfectly between the guitar-heavy glam of earlier years, and the spacey electronics of later material – both of which he presents wonderfully on the record! The album is one of his last to feature real rock songs, with the kind of vocals you'd know from Eno's first two albums – and it mixes straighter styles with more complex electronic soundscapes, resulting in some wonderfully cold and abstract material that prefaces musical territory that many other artists wouldn't hit until the following decade! Titles include "Golden Hours", "The Big Ship", "St Elmos Fire", "Sky Saw", "Spirits Drifting", and "Becalmed". CD

Brian EnoDiscreet Music (original recording remastered) ... CD
Virgin/Astralwerks, 1975. Used ... $8.99
A modern minimalist watershed – and maybe one of the first indications that Brian Eno was moving onto higher ideas in his music! The album's an important release on the Obscure series from Island Records – a special imprint that was curated by Eno, as a way of giving showcase to new ideas in British music that were neither free jazz, punk, prog, or any of the styles that were getting more play on the bigger labels! Instead, Eno and Obscure was to the British avant composition world what Lovely or CRI were to the US – although maybe had the bigger role of some of the Columbia Records releases by Philip Glass, Steve Reich, and Terry Riley. The album features the beautiful title piece – "Discreet Music", a long work that relies on a simple system of delay and recall, with slight variations occurring over the space of time, due to slight occasional interference from the composer. Side two features "Three Variations On The Cannon In D Major By Johann Pachelbel" – a great reworking of the baroque music classic – which works along similar lines, taking this very familiar classical theme, and breaking it down into simple components, which are then interwoven and played in repetition, creating a strange little bit of romantic minimalism. That second piece is performed by the Cockpit Ensemble, conducted by Gavin Bryars – who also got some great early releases on the Obscure label too! CD

Heaven 17 soften up their politics a bit with this second album (yet still address class inequality issues with the title!) – but they also manage to replace their Marxist agenda with some groovier, more soul-based tunes – just the kind of material that helped push them out of import obscurity into more of a crossover market in the US! The album's fondly remembered for the electro dancefloor numbers "Temptation", "Come Live With Me", and "Let Me Go" – all of which stand a cut above the work of their predecessors Human League, and show an ability to go past simple electronic pop riffs – even if they are all pretty darn catchy! Other tracks are great too – and the record has a joyous, optimistic quality that's every bit the best side of this scene from the early 80s generation.

A masterpiece of synth pop – and a landmark album for the Human League! The record took the group from the Brit post-punk underground to the charts of the world – with a stark blend of noisy keyboards, spare beats, and Phil Okey's wonderfully flat and monotone vocals. And although the record is a bit of a departure from the group's noisier first few albums, it's also still got a dark edge that we'd kind of missed the first time around. Includes a nice remake of the theme from "Get Carter", plus loads of little great synth tunes like "I Am The Law", "Seconds", "The Sound Of The Crowd", and "Darkness" – as well as the hits "Love Action", "Don't You Want Me", and "The Things That Dreams Are Made Of".

Insane early work by Human League – very different than their later hits, with a stark, cold sythn-heavy sound that we really love! The group at this time were just a bit more than punk rockers with some electronics – and the sound on the set is very much in the spirit of the Sheffield scene of the time, crossed with some of the darker pop of the Manchester groups. The drums are raw and jagged, the keyboards really eerie and mechanical, and the vocals have all the life and hope drained out of them – making for a beautifully moody approach that blows away most of today's young low-fi electronic groups trying for a similar sound.

Massive AttackMezzanine (2CD deluxe edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Virgin, 1998. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99 21.99
A heavier, darker prime era set from Massive Attack – and rightly remembered as a classic! The grooves are still really strong, but the trip hop pioneers are delving more deeply into a bass heavy dub trip with a deep, rumbling bottom running throughout the tracks and some distorted guitar and reverb drenched key and sample bits punctuating the cuts and moody vocals. Stunningly strong to this day – which is no mean feat given the rapid musical evolutions of the 90s onward! Includes "Angel", "Risingson", "Teardrop" (which features vocals by Cocteau Twin Elizabeth Fraser), "Inertia Creeps", "Exchange", "Dissolved Girl", "Man Next Door", "Black Milk", "Mezzanine" and "Group Four". 2CD set features a 20th Anniversary mix of the record – and a bonus CD with a Mezzanine Mad Professor selection of mixes – all handled by Mad Professor, with titles that include "Metal Banshee (Mad Professor mix one)", "Teardrop (Mazaruni dub one)", "Group Four (security forces dub)", "Wire (leaping dub)", "Inertia Creeps (floating on dubwise)", "Angel (angel dust)", "Exchange (mountain steppers dub)", and "Risingson (setting sun dub two)".

Massive AttackMezzanine Remix Tapes '98 – The Mad Professor Mixes ... LP
Virgin, 1998/2019. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Mad Professor's moody remixes and dubby takes on classic Mezzanine material – created in '98 and intended to come out that same year as a companion piece to that most legendary of Massive Attack albums – but them most of it was shelved for more that 20 years! With such such an inventive producer/remixer working with such brilliant original material, this is not only a stellar companion piece, it's a timeless effort that stands strongly on its own, too. A few tracks escaped the vaults back in the day as B-sides, but it's pretty revelatory to hear it all after all these years. It hasn't aged a day. Includes "Metal Banshee (Mad Professor Mix One)", "Angel (Angel Dust)", "Teardrop (Mazaruni Dub One)", "Inertia Creeps (Floating On Dubwise)", "Risingson (Setting Sun Dub Two)", "Exchange (Mountain Steppers Dub)", "Wire (Leaping Dub)" and "Group Four (Security Forces Dub)".

McDonald & GilesMcDonald & Giles ... CD
Virgin (UK), 1970. New Copy ... $8.99 14.99
A stunning spinoff from the first incarnation of King Crimson – a brilliant record from the team of Ian MacDonald and Michael Giles – both of whom move into territory that's quite different than their work with the more famous Fripp-led group! There's definitely elements here of the music the pair brought to King Crimson – but the songs are looser, more personal, and often have more jazz-rock elements in the mix – which can even result in some cool funky passages at times that are a quite soulful surprise! The album also features strong lyrical contributions from Peter Sinfield, who also sounds a bit hipper here – and work from Steve Winwood, who may well be one of the forces for the more soulful side of the spectrum. Lots of nice flute lines – almost Harold McNair-ish at times – and titles include "Suite In C", "Flight Of The Ibis", "Is She Waiting", "Tomorrow's People The Children Of Today", and "Birdman". CD

MekonsQuality Of Mercy Is Not Strnen ... LP
Virgin/Superior Viaduct, 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
The tremendous debut of The Mekons – a very different group at this stage than the well-loved act that has graced the Chicago scene for years! Instead, The Mekons resonate with a quality that really shows their link to the same Leeds scene that spawned Gang Of Four – and, if the gods were just, this album would have gotten the same sort of exposure and enthusiasm as that group's Entertainment – as The Mekons have a fantastic blend of punk, jagged rhythms, and wit – the last of which is maybe summed up by the cover and title, which is the group's play on the old idea of an infinite number of monkeys at an infinite number of typewriters being able to write Shakespeare! The songs are wonderful – a great counterpart to their first few singles on the Fast Product compilation – and titles include "Join Us In The Countryside", "Like Spoons No More", "After 6", "Watch The Film", "I Saw You Dance", "Lonely & Wet", and "Dan Dare".

Giorgio MoroderForever Dancing ... CD
Virgin/Universal (Japan), 1992. Used ... $9.99
A later disco project from Giorgio Moroder – put together in the early 80s years, when he'd moved more into the world of soundtracks and other styles – and sort of a glorious celebration of the clubby grooves that first brought Giorgio worldwide fame in the 70s! The album features remakes of lots of club classics, all put together in a non-stop mix – with guest vocals on one track by Donna Summer, plus equally nice vocals from Joey Diggs, Melanie Taylor, and Christina Nicols – over rhythms that are still plenty disco, but which also have a bit more 80s instrumentation in the mix. Titles include "The Party Goes On", "I Feel Love", "Carry On", "That's The Way", "I Can See You Dancing", "In The Name Of Love", "It's A Crime", "My Secret Wish", "Don't Leave Me This Way", "Born To Be Alive", and "Shame On You".

Mike OldfieldTubular Bells ... LP
Virgin/Epic, 1973. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Easily one of the most successful albums of the British jazz rock years – but still a longtime favorite of ours as well! Mike Oldfield sets a whole new standard here for concept rock – not only by working on a single album-length composition that spans all of sides one and two, but also by playing all instruments himself – in a one man symphony of sound that's pretty darn great! The main theme of the piece will be recognizable from it's stripped-down use in The Exorcist – but we really love Oldfield's expansion on it here in a range of different overdubbed instruments, which are also sometimes processed – and then introduced by Mike in a spoken part that's one of the highlights of the album.

Dexter WanselCaptured (with bonus track) ... CD
Virgin/Cherry Red (UK), 1986. New Copy ... $6.99 13.99
An overlooked gem from Dexter Wansel – a mid 80s set recorded after his famous albums for Philly International, and a record that offers a nice transition of his earlier groove! The set's got a keyboard-heavy vibe – similar to the mode that Wansel brought to the studio in the late 70s, but with a different 80s spin overall – especially given the use of drum programs in most of the rhythms, and a mix of other instruments from electric sources as well. Yet given Dexter's ear for a tune, the whole thing comes together with a nice degree of warmth, and a sense of soul that's deeper than you'd expect – especially given that Virgin Records were clearly trying for a crossover hit on this one. There's some great vocals on the leadoff track by The Jones Girls – and other vocals are by Meeta Gajjar, Dr Pearl Williams Jones, and Cynthia Biggs El – who co-wrote most of the record with Wansel. Titles include "Captured", "Do What You Wanna Do", "Nam", "In The Wind", "East Meets West", "Heart On The Line", "Conversations", "Turn Me On", and "Year Of Living Dangerously". CD also features a bonus 12" mix of "Captured". CD

Working WeekWorking Nights ... LP
Virgin (UK), 1985. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $14.99
One of the greatest soul groups from the UK in the 80s – a real bright spot in the years before Soul II Soul and the rise of acid jazz – and a set we'd rank right up there with Sade's best work of the time! Working Week have a very jazzy sound at their core – acoustic rhythms, and a strong commitment to jazz at the core – no surprise, given that two of the group's three members were previously involved with Weekend! The third member is the lovely Juliette Roberts – easily one of the best Brit soul singers of the time – and an artist who really helps push some of the more American influences in the group's music – while still giving the whole thing a bit of a London sparkle, too. The mix is sublime, and the whole album's great – full of classic cuts that include "Autumn Boy", "No Cure No Pay", "Sweet Nothing", "Who's Fooling Who", "Thought I'd Never See You Again", and "Venceremos".

A mighty roots harmony session! The Abyssinians were one of the first groups at the forefront of reggae to move away from the influence of the American soul scene and forge their own style. This album from the late 70s, a period when a lot of attention was being focused on the island from foreign musical markets, especially British labels like Virgin, is one of their finest efforts, a solid piece of laid back roots vibes, with an insistent, conscious message, and crisp, rolling grooves courtesy Boris Garner, Sly & Robbie, Fully Fullwood, Tommy McCook and many other greats.

Virgin/Modern Classics, 2000. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sweet and gritty soul from D'Angelo – who takes a huge step into deeper territory on Voodoo – and it's one of the most monumental records of its time! On one level, Voodoo works as a nicely stripped-down session with a very classic soul feel. Gone are the overzealous flourishes that sometimes overwhelmed his earlier songs, and in their place are some sweetly crafted vocal parts with a classic Marvin Gaye/Al Green feel. That warmth is probably what made Voodoo a massive popular success – but what makes it such a creative triumph are the darker undercurrents – which hint at a troubled soul struggling for spiritual truth. One of the rare cases in popular music when great art became music for the masses! Titles include "Left & Right (feat Method Man & Redman)", "The Line", "Spanish Joint", "Africa", "Feel Like Makin Love", "The Root", "Playa Playa", "Devil's Pie", and "Greatdayndamornin/Booty".

It's not only his third album, it's his third 2 part, single piece epic in a row that's woven from acoustic, electric, classic and modern instrumentation – with a choir and and folk instrumentation keeping in something of an earthy realm, even with synthezisers and more otherworldly touches.

There's maybe more of a sense of songform here throughout – lyrics that come to the forefront, but which are still balanced with lots of the madness that also graces Holger's music – a great ear for odd sounds and sonic twists that was always such a strong part of the Can sound, but which shows up even more strongly here, away from the heavier drums and more psychedelic modes. Titles include "Voice Of Bulgaria", "Ride A Radio Wave", "Rhine Water", "Late Night Radio", "Through The Freezing Snow", "I Get Weird Dreams", and "It Ain't No Crime". CD

Jah Wobble provides some great bass to ground things when they get a bit goofy, and Olli Marland is on guitar and piano – on titles that include "Sudetenland", "Hit Hit Flop Flop", "Hey Baba Reebop", "Music In The Air", and "Perfect World".

✨✧ Gil Evans, Jerry Dammers, & OthersAbsolute Beginners ... LP
Virgin/EMI, 1986. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
A great snapshot of jazzy London in the years before the acid jazz explosion of the late 80s – and a surprisingly great soundtrack that's stood the test of time much more than the actual film! The music here represents a jazz-based undercurrent of the London scene that was already turning its ears back in time – to a pre-mod era of the late 50s, which is the setting for Colin McInnes original novel used for the film – portrayed here in a pastiche of vocal and instrumental songs that often have a fair bit of classic touches! Gil Evans was brought in for most of the instrumentals, and turns out some really sparkling charts that have all the charm of his best work of the 50s – and other contemporary artists do a pretty great job themselves – at least on the more jazz-based numbers. Evans numbers include "Va Va Voom" – and the better jazzy tunes includes the excellent "Killer Blow" by Sade, plus "Have You Ever Had It Blue" by The Style Council, "That's Motivation" and "Absolute Beginners" by David Bowie, "Rodrigo Bay" by Working Week, "Selling Out" by Slim Gallard, and "Riot City" by Jerry Dammers.

Virgin, 2003. Used ... Out Of Stock
The debut of a new classic soul star – the amazing Ricky Fante, a young singer with a sound that takes us back to the 70s work of Al Green and Joe Tex! Fante's got a pure, honest style of soul vocals – one that's backed here by arrangements that invoke the deep soul of Memphis and Muscle Shoals in the 60s – with well-placed horn parts, and burning organ and guitar in the rhythm section. Ricky's vocals are enough to carry the album alone, though – steeped in years of tradition, and going back to a soul sound that few can ever reach these days – and somehow managing to carry off the whole thing without sounding hokey, phony, or flat! 4 tracks in all – "It Ain't Easy", "It's Over Now", "Smile", and "I Let You Go" – all great!

✨✧ Hatfield & The NorthRotter's Club (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Virgin/Esoteric (UK), 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A seminal bit of jazz rock from the UK scene of the early 70s – and one of the key albums in the early years of the Virgin label! Hatfield & The North were a great combo in the post-Canterbury mode – and featured sublime guitars from Phil Miller, plus percussion from Pip Pyle, bass from Richard Sinclair, and organ and electric keys from Dave Stewart. Given that the group is mostly instrumental, their style is really more jazz-based than some of their contemporaries on the scene – who'd often throw in a cheesy lyric at just the wrong time – and overall, the album's got the same subtle brilliance as Miller's other albums on Virgin done with Lol Coxhill. There's perhaps a bit more jamming here, but never too over the top – and always in a way that lets the space of the sound take equal presence next to the actual music. Titles include "Mumps", "Chaos At The Greasy Spoon", "Share It", "Lounging There Trying", "Didn't Matter Anyway", "Fitter Stoke Has A Bath", and "Underdub". This CD version includes 3 bonus tracks: "Halfway Between Heaven & Earth" (full version), "Oh, Len's Nature" (live) and "Lything And Gracing" (live). CD

Roy CSomething Nice (with bonus track) ... CD
Mercury/Playback, 1975. Used ... $6.99
Definitely something nice from the great Roy C – one of the overlooked soul singer's great 70s albums for Mercury – all of which are ripe for rediscovery by a younger generation! This one's slightly different than the rest, in that the album was recorded at the Dynamic Studios in Kingston – where Roy mixes his deep soul vocals with some slight Jamaican touches – not an outright reggae move, but just a bit of an island kick to some of the rhythms, mostly in the drums – which give some of these tunes a really sweet-stepping groove. The approach is maybe a bit like Johnny Nash, but much hipper – given the quality level of Roy C from his early years in The Honeydrippers onto these solo sides. Horace Ott arranged most of the album – and titles include "Second Time Around", "Virgin Girl", "If I Could Love You Forever", "Loneliness Has Got a Hold On Me", "Fireside", and "My Girl". CD features the bonus track "Every Woman Has A Right". CD
