✨✧ Hot Sauce featuring Rhonda WashingtonGood Woman Turning Bad – The Complete Volt Recordings ... CD
Stax (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
A lost album from the legendary Stax Records – a full set of tracks from the deep soul group Hot Sauce – planned as a record of its own in the final years of the label, but never issued at the time! Hot Sauce were one of the funkiest groups on Stax in the early 70s – a wickedly badass group who sported great lead vocals from Rhonda Washington – a singer who really knew how to stay on the groove and send the whole thing home! The work on this set is a great evolution of the Stax groove – and shows where the label might have gone in terms of 70s funk, had they stayed the course – and although the album's long overdue to get released, we're plenty happy to finally have it out after all these years. Many tracks were issued over the years as singles, and the set also features a few tracks not intended for the album too – titles that include "Stop Dogging Me", "Funny", "Mama's Baby", "I'll Kill A Brick", "Good Woman Turning Bad", "I Can't Let You Go", "Echoes From The Past", and "I Can't Win For Losing".

VariousComplete Stax/Volt Singles 1959 to 1968 (9CD box set) ... CD
Stax/Volt/Atlantic, 1950s. Used 9 CDs ... $49.99
This is it! A pretty darn complete document of one of the greatest soul labels of all time – put together in a wonderful box with a book on the label that's almost as great as the music on the 9CDs in the set! This one established a new standard for box sets when it was issued in 1991, and it was the first time you could really get a clear picture of the great work of Stax without spending a lifetime tracking down obscure singles. A portion of this work will be familiar to you – as it includes classic tunes by the likes of Otis Redding, Eddie Floyd, The Bar-Kays, Booker T & The MGs, Rufus Thomas, Carla Thomas, William Bell, and others – but there's also a wealth of amazing soul by artists who recorded for Stax and Volt, yet never made it big on the charts, and never cut full albums for the label. Just a small amount of these folks include The Memphis Nomads, Jeanne & The Darlings, Derek Martin, Barbara & The Browns, Eddie Jefferson, The Tonettes, Macy Skipper, The Premiers, Sir Isaac & The Do-Dads, Ruby Johnson, Bobby Wilson, Eddie Purrell, Sir Mack Rice, and many others. A lifetime of listening in one box – and an essential set if you dig 60s soul! This is the nicely compact jewel case version – 9CDs in a box that's roughly 6" square. CD

✨✧ VariousOther Side Of The Trax – Stax/Volt 45rpm Rarities 1964 to 1968 ... CD
Stax/Kent (UK), Mid 60s. Used ... $9.99
Stax Records turned out plenty of hits in the 60s – but the Memphis label was also a non-stop powerhouse of recording, and cut countless sides that were every bit as great as their hits, but never fully got their due! This collection brings together a huge amount of those gems – 24 rare Stax singles, none of which have ever been reissued – which makes this package a treasure trove of under-discovered Memphis soul, even if you've got some other Stax/Volt sets in your collection! A number of these tracks are early numbers by artists who'd break bigger on Stax later in the 60s – and others are by singers you might not know at all, but who were key to helping the label form its sound at the time – as their top-shelf team of writers and studio talents made these obscure singles every bit as great as their work for bigger artists. Titles include "I Need Somebody" by Johnny Daye, "Separation" by Carla Thomas, "Under My Nose" by Eddie Floyd, "Here I Am" by Lynda Lyndell, "Bashful Guitar" by Johnny Jenkins, "I Gotta Have My Baby's Love" by Sir Mack Rice, "Sweet Thing" by Gorgeous George, "The Big Dipper" by Sir Issac & The Do Dads, "Uh Oh I'm In Love Again" by Eddie Jefferson, "Beach Bash" by The Mar-Kays, "You Belong To Her" by Barbara & The Browns, "Strange Things" by Johnny Taylor, and "This Kind Of Woman" by Ivory Joe Hunter.

VariousStax/Volt Revue Vol 2 – Live In Paris ... LP
Stax, 1967. Very Good+ ... $9.99
The Memphis sound, working hard overseas – in a smoking live set that has some Stax Records stars working in Paris! There's a tightness here that arguably goes past the studio work by the singers – possibly because everyone's working in the same space, with the same backing group – and together have this intimacy that really makes the music sparkle. And sure, it's a bit rough around the edges at points, but in a good way – one that helps get past too-familiar modes in the tunes. Titles include "You Don't Know Like I Know" and "You Got Me Hummin" by Sam & Dave, "Raise Your Hand" and "But It's Alright" by Eddie Floyd", "Try A Little Tenderness" by Otis Redding, and "I Got My Mojo Working", "Let Me Be Good To You", and "Gee Whiz" by Carla Thomas.

✨✧ Wendy ReneAfter Laughter Comes Tears – The Complete Stax & Volt Singles & Rarities 1964 to 1965 ... LP
Stax/Light In The Attic, Mid 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Massive soul from Wendy Rene – one of the lesser-known talents from the Stax Records scene of the 60s, and an artist who's finally getting her due! We're not sure why Wendy never hit bigger at the time – because her singles here are wonderful – excellent female soul that not only ranks with the best of the Stax sound of the time, but which also challenges the bite of some of the best Motown music too – thanks to a particularly northern groove on some of the best cuts here! In fact, it may well be this style – often closer to Detroit soul than the usual Memphis bag at Stax – that might have held Wendy back. But that's hardly an issue all these many years later – and our hat's off to the folks at Light In The Attic for not only bringing together her rare singles, but also collecting unreleased songs, other rarities, and even material performed with the group The Drapels – all recorded in the years 1964 and 1965, and supported by some great notes too. Titles include "Bar B Q", "I Wish I Were That Girl", "What Will Tomorrow Bring", "Last Love", "Crowded Park", "Give You What I Got", "Deep In My Heart", "Wondering", "First Kiss", "Reap What You Sow", "After Laughter Comes Tears", and "He Hasn't Failed Me Yet".

Bar-KaysBlack Rock ... LP
Volt, 1971. Near Mint- ... $39.99
An album that's every bit as great as the title might imply – heavy guitar-based funk from the second version of The Bar-Kays – one that uses the new instrumental focus to push a groove that's much more black rock than before! There's still a bit of trumpet from the past, but the sound here is much heavier on the bottom – and really fuzzes up the guitar nicely at times to create a hipper sort of soul instrumental vibe! The rhythms are quite hip too – with echoes of the experiments in soul going on at Stax in the work of Isaac Hayes and others – and the album's miles away from the work that the group was laying down a few years before! Definitely one of the hardest-hitting Stax albums of the early 70s – and filled with great tracks like "You Don't Know Like I Know", "Dance To The Music", "Piece Of Your Peace", "Montego Bay", and "Baby I Love You".

Bar-KaysGotta Groove (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Volt/Craft, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 24.99
Amazing work from the new version of The Bar-Kays – a group who reformed to become a combo as heavy as any of the best funky groups from Detroit, LA, or New York at the time! There's a style here that's a sweet Memphis distillation of ideas bubbling under in music by Sly Stone, Funkadelic, and others – taken to new territory here by a group that was already steeped in 60s soul instrumental sounds! The cuts show a great ear for simple hooks and playful instrumental twists and turns – still with a bit of the trumpet used on Bar-Kays work of the past, but more in a groove that lets the guitar step out nicely with psychedelic soul undercurrents! Tracks include "In The Hole", "Funky Thang", "Grab This Thing", "Street Walker", "Humpin", and "Don't Stop Dancing To The Music (parts 1 & 2)". LP, Vinyl record album

A killer collection of work by The Dramatics – featuring their greatest tracks from the early Stax years – seminal work that helped redefine the group soul sound of the 70s! There's a great blend of southern and east coast harmony modes here – and the package is filled with the group's best moments from their Stax/Volt albums – mostly from the first two releases. CD features 16 titles that include "Toast To The Fool", "Highway From Heaven", "And I Panicked", "I Dedicate My Life To You", "Fell For You", "Whatcha See Is Whatcha Get", "Get Up & Get Down", "Hey You!

Stu Gardner & The Sanctified SoundStu Gardner & The Sanctified Sound ... LP
Volt, 1974. Near Mint- ... $29.99
Funky keyboard player Stu Gardner cut a few indie albums in LA during the late 60s, and most of those have gone onto be sought-after funky instrumental classics. This mid 70s album for Stax has a bit more of a soul sound to it, with fuller arrangements, and vocals on most of the tracks – but it's still got Stu's crazy approach to arrangements. The groove is sort of messed up LA funk meets raw Memphis R&B, but there's some short breaks on "Devil In A Ma" that we know we've heard in someone's break mix, and many of the tracks start out with a nice clean intros ripe for sampling. Includes the nice instrumental version of "Mathilda" with a snapping wah wah groove, plus the cuts "Funky Neighborhood", "Leave Him Alone", and "Sanctified Sound". LP, Vinyl record album

A really great single by this obscure Stax group that we wish got the chance to make a full LP! "I'll Kill A Brick" is not only one of the strangest-named titles we've heard, but it's a great southern soul tune, sung in a style that reminds us a bit of Ann Peebles, and with sweetly bubbling Memphis production that only enforces that sound! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Margie JosephMargie Joseph Makes A New Impression ... LP
Volt, 1970. Near Mint- ... $29.99
A great early album from Margie Joseph – and a real standout in the post-Atlantic Stax Record scene! The sound here isn't as standard Memphis as some of the other records on the label at the time – more a blend of southern soul, Detroit styles, and a few other bits – pulled together tightly through the strength of Margie's vocals! There's some fairly expansive backings at times – a great mix of sweet strings and deeper soul that's totally great – and which really should have made the record a better-charting classic at the time. The Bar Kays provide backing on a number of tracks – and the album includes a great 8 minute remake of "Stop In The Name Of Love" that begins with a nifty spoken part, in which Margie's talking to her man about hearing his name spoken by someone else on the bus! Titles include "How Beautiful The Rain", "Sweeter Tomorrow", "Medicine Bend", "Come Tomorrow", and "I'm Fed Up". LP, Vinyl record album

Otis ReddingDictionary Of Soul - Complete & Unbelievable ... CD
Volt/Atlantic, 1964. Used ... $5.99
An album with a very fitting title – as the whole set is practically a dictionary of soul music, for anyone who needs an understanding of the genre! The cover alone tells you that the set is something special – and the sounds within are even better – classic Otis Redding on Stax Records, at a time when he'd already gotten his initial groove going, and was really pushing into that later, more sophisticated style that had him crossing boundaries and opening up the music for a whole new generation! Key proof of this is his remake of "Try A Little Tenderness" – a standard that had been knocking around for years, but which is exploded with a whole new emotion in Otis' version – as are tunes like "Day Tripper" and "Tennessee Waltz", with results that are maybe not as completely sublime – but which still illustrate the way that Redding was reaching way beyond the indie soul scene with his appeal. But even better are the cuts intrinsic to the album – beautiful originals that include "Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa (Sad Song)", "My Lover's Prayer", "Ton Of Joy", "I'm Sick Y'All", and "She Put The Hurt On Me" – which really demonstrate Redding's growing strengths as a songwriter.

✨✧ Otis ReddingDock Of The Bay ... CD
Volt/Rhino, 1968. Used ... $4.99
A very important crossover soul album – a huge hit for Otis Redding that was released after his tragic death in December 1967 – but it's also hard to say if it would have had the impact it did had Redding not passed while the LP was still in production. In a way, the record sort of set the stage for the mythologies of pop stars that would surround the tragedies in the coming years of the late 60s – with liner notes on the back by Jon Landau about the impact of Redding's work and passing on the rest of the music industry, which would be even more charged with meaning to folks buying the album at the time, who certainly knew that Redding had cut "Dock of the Bay" a few days before his death, and had missed its meteoric rise to #1 after his passing. And in fact, the album itself is more of a loose collection of tracks pulled from singles and other sources to cash in on Redding's passing – and includes odd numbers like "The Huckle Buck", which had previously appeared on a Stax promo album, or "Tramp", his famous funky duet with Carla Thomas. Other titles include "I'm Coming Home", "Ole Man Trouble", "Open The Door", and "Let Me Come On Home". CD

Atlantic/Volt, 1967. Used ... Out Of Stock
A great re-imagining of the final moments of the too-short career of the mighty Otis Redding – a set that puts together an album based around his huge posthumous hit "Dock Of The Bay" – and releases the album as if Otis hadn't died at the end of 1967! As is now legend, Redding passed away all too soon, but had left behind some killer material that was not yet released by Stax Records – including "Dock Of The Bay", plus lots of other gems that Atlantic then issued on a variety of different albums in years to come. This set brings back all those cuts in one full length set – showing what should have happened if the final recordings of November/December 1967 were released as an album – right down to liner notes that point the way forward, not mourn Redding's recent passing. All cuts have been issued before, but sound great in this setting – which is very different than the original Dock Of The Bay album from 1968. Titles include "Champagne & Wine", "Love Man", "Direct Me", "The Happy Song", "Think About It", "Hard To Handle", "Dock Of The Bay", "I've Got Dreams To Remember", "Pounds & Hundreds", "I'm A Changed Man", "Gone Again", and "Amen".

EmotionsDon't Ask My Neighbors – The Columbia/Arc Recordings (Flowers/Rejoice/Sunbeam/Come Into Our World/New Affair/bonus tracks) (3CD set) ... CD
Columbia/Soulmusic.com (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3 CDs ... $24.99
Amazing box set – five full albums of material, plus lots of bonus tracks too! First up is Flowers – a soaring classic from The Emotions – thanks to some supreme help from the Earth Wind & Fire side of the soul spectrum! This set has the trio really sounding great – with Kalimba Productions by Maurice White and Charles Stepney – and a good deal of EWF help on the instrumentation as well! The girls break out of the rootsier style used on their earlier Stax recordings, and manage to fit perfectly with the jazzy tinges of the new grooves – and, along with Ramsey Lewis and EWF, the Emotions were part of a hugely successful trinity during the late 70s – one that took the indie soul roots of the Chicago scene and turned it into landmark big business for Columbia Records. The album's got a new approach to female group soul that would go onto shape R&B for years to come – and titles include "Flowers", "I Don't Wanna Lose Your Love", "We Go Through Changes", "Special Part", and "You've Got The Right To Know". Next is Rejoice – a huge hit for both The Emotions and Maurice White – whose Kalimba Productions handled this album in the same hit mode they'd been using for Earth Wind & Fire! There's a polished, soaring bounce her that definitely shows the Earth Wind & Fire touch – and which takes the girls miles from their rougher, rootsier soul of the Stax/Volt years – yet like all the best EWF records of the time, the sound is also plenty soulful, with lots of righteous undercurrents. The album includes the group's wonderful track "Don't Ask My Neighbors", a heavenly tune that builds on a long tradition of sweet female soul from Chicago; the super-huge "Best Of My Love", a hit on dancefloors and radios for years to come – and many other nice numbers like "Blessed", "How'd I Know That Love Would Slip Away", and "Key To My Heart". Sunbeam is great little album from The Emotions – largely because it sounds a lot like prime mid 70s Earth Wind & Fire, with female vocals added over the top – ultimately, pulling away with a soulful charm all its own! Maurice White produced the whole set, and it's got a soaring spacey sound that provides a perfect spiritual edge to the girls vocals – taking them way past the hits, into much more sophisticated soul territory. There's a beautifully righteous vibe going on throughout – a sound that's almost like Minnie Riperton at her 70s Capitol best – and titles include "Love Vibes", "Walking The Line", "Time Is Passing By", "I Wouldn't Lie", "Smile", and "Spirit Of Summer". Come Into Our World has the sweet Emotions at the top of their game – one of the brilliant albums that has the soulful trio working hand in hand with Earth Wind & Fire! The girls were plenty great in their early years, but working with Maurice White and company, they really took off – hitting a whole new level that really unlocked some deeply spiritual power in their vocals! And sure, the approach also yielded the group plenty of hits – but for good reason, too – given the classic quality and all-great nature of a set like this. Maurice White produced, and the lineup is filled with plenty of Earth Wind & Fire players too – working with some great arrangements from Tom Tom 84, Wade Marcus, and others. Tunes are balanced between clubby numbers and some nice midtempo moments – and titles include "Where Is Your Love", "Cause I Love You", "Come Into My World", "On & On", "I Should Be Dancing", "Layed Back", and "Yes I Am". New Affair has The Emotions breaking free a bit from the Earth Wind & Fire influence, and grooving nicely with a sweet 80s feel! The girls' voices are still quite wonderful – some of the deepest harmonies in the female soul world at the time – and the tunes kick it up nicely in a blend of snapping bassy club tracks and mellower cuts that sweetly sway with their great vocals! Loads of wonderful tracks – and an album not to miss! Titles include "Turn It Out", "There'll Never Be Another Moment", "Now That I Know", "Love Lies", "When You Gonna Wake Up", and "Here You Come Again". 3CD set features 8 bonus tracks – including "Boogie Wonderland (12" mix", "Don't Ask My Neighbors (single version)", "I Should Be Dancin (single version)", "My Baby Dance", "Changes", "Where Is Your Love (single version)", and "Flowers (single version)".

Mercury/Playback, 1973. Used ... $6.99
Sex, soul, and lots more too – a sublime solo set from the great Roy C Hammond – recorded after his initial work with The Honeydrippers! The approach here is much more deep soul than his work with that group – very much in the best sort of Fame or Hi Records vibe – with a slow-burning sound that's a nice evolution past the earliest modes of southern soul, and which is perfectly suited to the sophistication of Roy's vocals! The set was the first in Hammond's solo run for Mercury Records – almost ignored at the time, but later the stuff of legend – thanks to writers like Peter Guaralnick, and others who've finally given Roy his due. The arrangements and instrumentation are wonderful – much more indie soul than you'd expect – on a par with the best early 70s material on Stax/Volt – and titles include "I Found A Man In My Bed", "Back Into My Arms", "Open Letter To The President", "Don't Blame The Man" and "I'll Never Leave You Lonely".

At times, the use of voice adds almost a no wave element to the set – and on the set, Rudge reads from Sun Ra's "Endless Realm" , and "Amooooore", a 1916 text from Volt – on titles that include "FTE 1", "FA5 1", "FA 3", and "FL 1".

Stax, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A great little set that focuses on the group soul recordings from the Stax/Volt label – a format that wasn't explored that strongly in the early years of the company, but really grew to prominence as the years went on! Despite the title, not all the work here is in the southern soul mode you might expect – and the collection features plenty of numbers that rival the greatness of east coast harmony soul of the time, plus some other rare bits that are beyond description! Many numbers here are relatively obscure – and the 13 track collection features singles that include "Since I've Been In Love" by The Dramatics, "The Echo" by The Epsilons , "All Because Of You" by The Limitations , "Since I Fell For You" by The Lords , "Mannish Boy" and "Too Much Going On To Say Goodbye" by The Newcomers, "Which Way" and "Anyone Can" by The Leaders, "I Love You, You Love Me" by The Temprees, "Let Me Repair Your Heart" by The Mad Lads, "Peaceful Journey" by Fat Larry's Band, and "I'll Be Your Anything" by Ollie & The Nightingales.

✨✧ Johnnie FriersonHave You Been Good To Yourself ... CD
Light In The Attic, Early 90s. New Copy Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Raw and riveting gospel-folk-soul from Johnnie Frierson – only ever issued as a self-released cassette before this vital re-discovery by Light In The Attic! Johnnie is one of the vital, though relatively unknown voices in the Stax/Volt universe, working with a his sister Wendy Rene and in the group The Drapels in the late 60s, before going to Viet Nam and being pretty quite in the proceeding years. The songs Have You Been Good To Yourself and raw and direct, but anything but simple – just voice and guitar, but carrying such a depth of feeling. Truly wonderful stuff! Includes "Have You Been Good To Yourself", "Heavenly Father, You've Been Good", "Miracles", "Out Here On Your Word", "You Were Sent To This World", "Woke Up This Morning" and "Trust In The Lord". CD

Columbia/Legacy, 1990. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The raw, blistering and still great debut of Uncle Tupelo – a band that played blue collar rock and folk songs with post punk and otherwise 80s underground bred intensity – a fairly simple combination that's as stunning now as ever! Given that the principal players would go on to long and fertile careers as Son Volt and Wilco, it's all the more monumental, but even if they would have disappeared after this first record, it'd still be a genuine landmark! Includes "Graveyard Shift", "That Year", "Factory Belt", "Train", "Whiskey Bottle", "Screen Door", the Carter Family cover/title track and more. CD

Uncle Tupelo's excellent second album, proving that No Depression was no fluke! The group wasn't about to repeat themselves, even though their ballsy mix of rural midwestern roots and raw, blistering guitars was already influencing soon-to-be more famous alt-era hitmakers. There's still some loudness here, but there's also more acoustic material on his one, pointing the way towards the end of Uncle Tupelo and the start of Son Volt and Wilco. Includes "Gun", "Looking For A Way Out", "Nothing", "Punch Drunk", "Post Card", "D. Boon", "True To Life", "Cold Shoulder" , "If That's Alright" and more. CD

✨✧ EmotionsRejoice ... LP
Columbia, 1977. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
A huge hit for both The Emotions and Maurice White – whose Kalimba Productions handled this album in the same hit mode they'd been using for Earth Wind & Fire! There's a polished, soaring bounce her that definitely shows the Earth Wind & Fire touch – and which takes the girls miles from their rougher, rootsier soul of the Stax/Volt years – yet like all the best EWF records of the time, the sound is also plenty soulful, with lots of righteous undercurrents. The album includes the group's wonderful track "Don't Ask My Neighbors", a heavenly tune that builds on a long tradition of sweet female soul from Chicago; the super-huge "Best Of My Love", a hit on dancefloors and radios for years to come – and many other nice numbers like "Blessed", "How'd I Know That Love Would Slip Away", and "Key To My Heart".

✨✧ Jackson SistersJackson Sisters ... LP
Tiger Lily/Mr Bongo (UK), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
An amazing bit of soul – and one of the rarest funk records of the 70s! This masterpiece was recorded by The Jackson Sisters, a semi-gospelly soul group that has a sound that's a bit like The Voices of East Harlem, but that's a lot harder, and that has a deeper soul sound overall! At times, the group is funky – as on their incredible track "I Believe In Miracles", a rare groove classic if there ever was one, and one of the most in-demand tracks we've ever stocked. At other times, the girls have a mellower soul sound, with great raw harmonies that remind us of the Volt work by The Emotions, but with much rougher instrumental backing. This album's the only one they ever cut – and it's just about impossible to find in the original pressing (and in fact, we've never seen a copy!) Apart from the amazing cut "Miracles", this one includes loads of gems like "Rockin' On My Porch", "Shake Her Loose", "(Why Can't We Be) More Than Just Friends", and "Boy, You're Dynamite"!

BGP/Ace (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
More funky breaks than Evel Knevel after the Snake River Canyon jump! The groove hounds at BGP records were set loose on the Ace catalog – which includes holdings from Atlantic, Stax, Volt, Westbound, and other funky classic labels – and they managed to come up with a killer batch of funky cuts, even though this is their 3rd dip into the crates! If anything, perhaps they dipped even deeper this time – especially as some of the once-trusted sources for breaks, like the famous Ultimate Breaks & Beats series, are now disappearing from the market. Titles include "Soul Pad" by The Coasters, "I Walk On Gilded Splinters" by Johnny Jenkins, "T Plays It Cool" by Marvin Gaye, "Nappy Dugout" by Funkadelic, "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" by Jimmy Ponder, "Get Out Of My Life Woman" by The Mad Lads, "The Rose" by 50 Foot Hose, "Holy Ghost" by The Bar Kays, "No Strings Attached" by The Mad Lads, "After Laughter Comes Tears" by Wendy Rene, "River's Invitation" by Freddie Robinson, "This House Is Smokin" by BT Express, "Music Man (parts 1 & 2)" by Pleasure Web, and "I'm Afraid The Masquerade Is Over" by David Porter.

Hi Records/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Hi Records goes nice and deep – not just in a deep soul style, but in a setting that also showcases some of the lesser-known talents who recorded for the legendary Memphis soul label! The package is overstuffed with rare goodies from the vaults of Hi – 26 tracks that include a fair bit of really obscure gems from the Memphis scene of the late 60s and early 70s – a motherlode of music that's almost like digging into some of the deeper reaches of the Stax/Volt single collections! There's a few more familiar names here, but we really treasure the more obscure artists – who come together in a very unified collection of laidback, mellow-grooving, deep soul numbers. Titles include "Mama's Boy" by James Fry, "Sweetness Ain't Sweet No More" by T99, "Is It Over" by David Duke, "Say Yes To Love" by Willie Clayton, "I Love Her" by Willie Walker, "I Wanna Share Everything" by Teacher's Edition, "Wake Up Fool" by Masqueraders, "I'm Gonna Wait" by George Jackson, "Hey Little Girl" by Norm West, "Charlie Tuttle" by Sam Mosley, "Back To You" by Jean Plum, "She's My Woman" by Bobo Mr Soul, "That's The Man Is For" by Phillip Mitchell, and "Be Good To You" by Jimmy Mack.

Eddie HarrisHigh Voltage ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1969. Used ... $16.99
Mindblowing electric work from the great Eddie Harris – heard here on his famous late 60s combo that also features bass from the great Melvin Jackson! The music's got all the soulful currents of Eddie's earlier work, yet also takes on a trippier vibe too – since Harris plays an electric version of a tenor sax, most likely a Varitone – which gets all cool and echoey at times, with lots of great effects next to the well-played solos! Melvin Jackson's bass is mighty nice too – as low as you can go, and moving things massively at the bottom – alongside drums from Billy Hart and piano from Jodie Christian. The whole thing's wonderful – and titles include an early version of "Listen Here", plus "Funky Doo", "Is There A Place For Us", "The Children's Song", and "Movin' On Out". CD

John Holt1000 Volts Of Holt (2CD version) ... CD
Trojan, 1973. Used 2 CDs ... $18.99
A seminal set from vocalist John Holt – stepping out here on his own after an early stretch of greatness with The Paragons – and working as a bright star on his own, with a level of crossover power that should have made him huge on the global scene! The album's as much a soul record as a reggae date – and although the rhythms have plenty of classic Trojan touches, the overall presentation has John also reaching into some of the bigger US and UK modes of the time. A number of the cuts are covers by American soul artists, but they come off with a very special, personal feel in the hands of Holt – that undeniable charm that always made him so great. Includes a wonderful cover of "The Girl From Ipanema" – plus "Stoned Out Of My Mind", "Baby I Want You", "Help Me Make It Through The Night", "Killing Me Softly With Her Song", "Which Way You Going Baby" and "Never Never Never". This set includes the 1000 Volts LP, with 8 bonus tracks that are the Jamaican mixes of tunes from the record, plus a 25 track retrospective best of his career from 1967-1972! CD

✨✧ VariousBobo Yeye – Belle Epoque In Upper Volta (3CD set) ... CD
Numero, 1970s. New Copy 3 CDs ... $22.99 35.98
One of the most ambitious projects we've ever seen from Numero – and that's saying a lot, given some of their other releases! This package is equal parts cultural document and musical treasure trove – a heavy book full of photos from a time when Upper Volta was stepping past its colonial history, and finding a new cultural identity as an independent nation – presented alongside a rich array of the sounds that were shaping the scene at the time! The cover image has a feel that's maybe older than its 70s vintage – and some of the music does, too – relatively rootsy at points, with heavy percussion, riffing guitar, and jazzy inflections on some of the horns – and a bit less polished and produced than work coming from scenes like Nigeria or South Africa at the same time. The whole thing's similar to Numero's Light On The Southside set – but maybe even better, as the music here is even more unique – and the images are ones that bring forth a culture we never would have experienced otherwise. Titles include "Air Volta" and "Mama Soukous" by Volta Jazz, "He Ya Wannan" by Ouedraogo Youssef, "Si Tu Maime" and "Ram Passomaye" by Coulibaly Tidiani & Dafr Star, "Milaoba" by Les Imbattables Leopards, and "Gentlemen Doromina" by Echo Del Africa. 3CDs, 37 tracks, and a hardcover 176 page book!

Ostinato (UK), Late 90s. New Copy Gatefold ... $16.99 24.98
A really amazing criss-cross of musical modes from the island of Cape Verde – a nation that already gave the world many musical hybrids over the years, but really knocked things out of the park with the electrified funana movement in the 90s! The sounds here are ancient at the core – rootsy percussion and accordion, used in ways that echo South American styles from decades past – but the grooves are quicker, and electrified by beats, keyboards, and other more contemporary elements – so that the music is really set on fire, and burns with a really unexpected sense of urgency! The bpm count on most tracks is pretty high – which makes the deft work of the accordionists even more amazing – and as always with the Ostinato label, the whole thing comes with some wonderfully detailed notes on the music and culture. Titles include "Pom Um Grogu" by Peps Love, "Mo Na Mama" by Bitori E Fefe Di Calbicera, "Rabidanti" by Orlando Pantera, "Nha Boi" by Tchota Suari E Chando Gracioso, "Rei Di Tabanka" by Ferro Gaita, "Mulato Ferrera" by Etalvino Preta, and "Nha Lutcha" by Avelino E Orlando Pantera.

There's a lot going on here – sneering spoken word social satire by Timothy Leary set to a spare industrial rock backdrop, this era of Ministry appropriate heavy guitar and samples over far funkier dark disco, their classic sinister cover of "Do You Think I'm Sexy" and more – but it ultimately stands as kind of a concise snapshot of these industrial rock pioneers at an early 90s highpoint. Includes "Gila Copter", "Creep", "Mr. Lucky", "Sergio", "The Rockabye", "Dirt", "Linger Ficken' Good" and more. CD

Massive music from Betty Wright – an album that really has her coming into her own – and showing the world how great Miami soul can be, when it's done this right! The album's overflowing with key help from TK legends like Willie Clarke, Clarence Reid, Steve Alaimo, and KC – all of whom bring in a cool shifting set of grooves to really expand Betty's style – still with all the charm of her early hits, yet also showing a classy, sophisticated side that we never would have expected before – a vibe that's even more powerful than Gwen McCrae on her albums from the time. Titles include the classic "Tonight's the Night" – made famous in a later live take, but done here in the original studio version – plus the tracks "Show Your Girl", "Where Is The Love", "Everybody Was Rockin", "Love Don't Grow On A Love Tree", "Don't Thank Me Baby Thank Yourself", and "Shoorah Shoorah".

The wildly diverse, heavily percussive global jazz, soul, and exotica inspired Afrodesia from the late 60s combo Afro Soultet – a crazy rare one, too! The group purportedly has roots in Texas, but incarnations of it were gigging around LA a bit earlier as Afro Latin Blues Quintet +1 and a bit later as Afro Latin Soultet. Here they play with boundless inspiration from around the globe. Afro Latin percussion and rhythms hold it all together, but they bring in strains of Latin soul, African rhythms, straighter jazz and madly percussive instrumental rock. Producer/composer/arranger/raconteur Jack Millman plays drums in the group as Johnny Kitchen, and other players include Joey Dubreau on vibes, Frank Morris on guitar and harmonica, Eddie Paris on drums, Dean Elliot on percussion, William Quinn on flute & sax, and Bill Collins on keys.

The crowd is nicely responsive – small, but enthusiastic – and the whole thing almost feels a lot more like some back room party from mid 60s Brazil, than it does the same style of instrumental records from the time! Titles include "The Boogaloo Dance", "Something's Gotta Give", "Marina", "Dio Come Ti Amo", "Quando M'Inamoro", and "Voltei". CD features bonus tracks – a cool take on "Batman", and "Tema De Onibus".

Medical, Mid 80s. Near Mint- ... $6.99
A one-man German operation from the mid-80s – but one with a punchy approach that rivals some of the better electro pop from the Euro scene at the time! Body 11 only ever issued a 7" EP back in the day, plus a handful of cuts on cassette – but the sound here really recalls those great early 80s moments when older, colder groups like Cabaret Voltaire or Human League found a way to get more tuneful – yet still hold onto most of the edge that made them so great. Had Body 11 issued these cuts in early 80s Sheffield or Manchester, he might well have broken big – but it's also the mystery of these obscure tracks that keeps the record really interesting too. Instrumentation includes lots of Yamaha, Korg, and Roland electronics – and titles include "Wasteland 2", "Under My Command", "Just A Smile", "Marching", "Hearts", and "Fascination".

John FaheyJohn Fahey Volume 6 – Days Have Gone By ... LP
Takoma, 1967. Very Good- ... $19.99
John Fahey just got deeper and deeper with each new record of his early years – and this sublime sixth set is a unique blend of his amazing work on guitar, his timeless sense of music, and his growing ear for odd elements and atmospherics that make his records far more than just the usual acoustic folk blues of the time! Instead, the whole thing's this kind of pioneering mixture of organic sounds – still years ahead of its time, and put together with this sensibility that it took most folks decades to appreciate – every bit as revelatory on a first listen today as it must have been back in the 60s. Titles include "A Raga Called Pat", "The Revolt Of The Dyke Brigade", "Days Have Gone By", "We Would Be Building", and "Night Train Of Valhalla". LP, Vinyl record album

Antonino Riccardo LucianiAgonia Della Civilta ... LP
Flower/Intervallo (Italy), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99
A sound library record, but one from the much darker side of the 70s spectrum – that special small sub-genre of sound library material that's not groovy, but very experimental – almost as if the composer AR Luciani were able to work with even more freedom than some of the artists who were creating avant classical or electronic records of the time! The tunes are full of stark sounds that often move into atonal areas – sometimes electronic, sometimes acoustic but with a cold electronic spirit – and seemingly repeated using tape tricks or other effects, so that a number of tunes loop back on themselves in a really cool way. Titles include "Folla Senza Volto", "Morte Progressiva", "Esodo Di Popolazioni", "Inabitabilita", "Dramma Dell'Evoluzione", and "Metropoli In Agonia". LP, Vinyl record album

Classic choro mixed with contemporary jazz – a beautiful set that offers up a range of lovely lines on flute from Maiara Moraes, who seems to play a few different variations of the instrument on the set! The rest of the group features piano, bass, and drums – plus some added flute and saxes from Josue Dos Santos – and the approach is very strongly jazz, but maybe with just some slight colors and tones borrowed from the older style of Brazilian choro – served up at a level that's got a lot more power, color, and soul than any other effort of this type we can think of! Titles include "Novena", "Bailonga", "Maracatu", "Con Brasil Adentro/Fuga X", and "Caminho De Volta". CD

Tracks are short, sweet, and with a good blend of pop lyrics and spare electronics. LP, Vinyl record album

Genius work by Walter Wanderley – and rare too! This sparkling set features the organist at his best, crafting tight little bossa and samba tunes with care, using that streamlined organ sound that he virtually pioneered at the time, and which works so wonderfully with the album's short jazzy arrangements. The set's got all the charm of his best work, with the added presence of a bit of piano or chorus vocals on a few tracks – and some very nice use of guitar and horns!

Like that set, this one really digs deep in the post-punk electronic underground – and features a lot of tracks that are appearing here on vinyl – either because they only saw original issue as cassette material, or because they were never issued at all – lost in the shifting sands of the time, in a generation that was dominated by bigger names like Cabaret Voltaire or New Order! These guys travel in similar, but much darker territory – and songs are often the best stark illustration of the cold wave style – on titles that include "Find Some Body" by Mystery Plane, "Pulse" by Berserk In A Hayfield, "Radio" by Void, "Elixir Vapor" by Disintegrators, "Transvision" by Void, "Undercurrents" by Body Electric, and "Out Of Space & Out Of Time" by The Lord.

The continuing genius of this really wonderful series – just about the only way you'll get to hear this wealth of work from the UK electro scene of the early 80s – most of which was only released on cassette at the time! These tracks follow strongly on the electronic sounds of scenes like Sheffield or Manchester – work that's much more underground than material by groups like New Order or Cabaret Voltaire – with maybe more of the darkness of the latter in their earliest days, and a continuing legacy to the starker, minimal modes – even when the songs have a bit of vocals. Perhaps a strong comparison might be the turn that Section 25 too with their classic From The Hip album on Factory – and titles include "Danse Electrique" by Beatmixer, "Going Out" by Silicon Valley, "Start Of Something" by Berserk In A Hayfield, "World Perfect (edit)" by WeR7, "I'll Get You For This" by Mystery Plane, and "Train" by Echophase".

Gilles Peterson is back in Brazil – and has come up with a tremendous batch of grooves both old and new! The package seems to go even deeper than Ether's first batch of Brazilian goodies picked by Gilles – and serves up one disc of funky classics from the 60s and 70s, plus a full second disc of newer tunes from around the globe – all numbers that draw keen inspiration from the best sound of older Brazilian music, and a number of which are previously unreleased! Older classics include "Cascavel" by Antonio Adolfo, "Reflexos" by Luiz Eca, "Homem Da Rua" by Lo Borges, "Procura Se Uma Virgem" by Orquestra St Moritz, "Samba Do Carioca" by Silvio Cesar, "Que Bandeira" by Evinha, "Lalari Olala" by Jorge Ben, "Hei Voce" by Dom Salvador & Abolicao, and "Baiao Violado" by Dominguinhos.

Trama (Brazil), 2005. Used ... $12.99
Killer Brazilian soul from Bruno E and a host of his Trama labelmates – served up in a single continuous mix of tunes that showcases some of the best recent sounds from his scene! Bruno's at the helm of the mix, and contributes a few of his own tracks as well as remixes of other work from artists that include Ed Motta, Patricia Marx, and Max De Castro – new versions of tunes from their albums, but all given some nice dancefloor twists to make them slide into Bruno's set with a really unified feel. In a way, the consistency of the album almost makes this one a counterpart to Bruno's excellent Alma Sessions record – because the overall spirit of soul of that one is alive and well here! Titles include "Ventos Do Outono", "Dado (Bruno E Alma rmx)", and "Carino (Nordestino rmx)" by Bruno E; "Que Bom Voltar (Bruno E rmx)" by Ed Motta; "La No Mar (Bruno E Dub)" and "Recomecar (Alma rmx)" by Patricia Marx; "Happy Hour A Beira Mar (Broken Sessions rmx) by Wilson Simoninha; "Jackson O Rei Do Pandeiro (Bruno E O Discurso rmx)" by Banda De Pifanos De Caruaru; and "Mormaco (Bruno E O Discurso rmx)" by Nacao Zumbi.

Put aside any older conceptions you may have about drum n bass – because this set of tracks unlocks a whole new sound – samba n bass! The tracks all have a fresh, modern dancefloor take on older Brazilian rhythms and instrumentation – using tightly crafted beats to kick up the tempo a whole heck of a lot – while still working within a realm of elements that includes some older Brazilian styles. The set features some exclusive tracks to the compilation, and features a lot of work by Brazilian producers DJ Patife and Mad Zoo – as well as a few other bits from the Trama posse. Titles include "Waltz For Koop (DJ Patife rmx)" by Koop, "Meu Sonho (extended mix)" by Kaleidoscopio, "Corcovado (Marky & XRS rmx)" by Everything But The Girl, "Malta" by Drumagick, "Amor Errado (DJ Patife & Mad Zoo's club)" by Fernanda Porto, "Cresce Lentamente (Mad Zoo's re-loaded rmx)" by Riovolt, "February" by Max De Castro, and "Ser" by Ramilson Maia.

As with other volumes – and as you might guess from the title – the groove here is a mixture of older Brazilian modes and more contemporary rhythms – often not nearly as stark or skittish as you might guess from the drum n bass reference, and with a good deal of warmth throughout! Exclusive tracks include "Subida Do Morro" and "Talarico" by David WS, "In The Summer Breeze (Mad Zoo's sambass rmx)" by Deeper & Pacific with Geanine Marques, "Gente (Theego & DJ Roots rmx)" by Samabeat, "Brazilian Nights 2007" by Cosmonautics with Cleveland Watkiss, and "E Dificil Esperar (Theego rmx)" by Riovolt.

Irma (Italy), 2004. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Rootsy Brazilian jazz – done Italian style! At one level, the group's a free-thinking assemblage that takes us back to the glory days of the Airto/Flora years – working in an earthy style that has lots of organic touches, yet which also rises out of the ground with a strongly jazzy vibe. But at another level, the group's also got some occasional modes that link them a bit more closely to the Irma label scene – not in an electronic way, but in their strong desire to recast older Brazilian jazz for a new era. Great stuff all around, with sweet female lead vocals, lots of percussion, some keyboards, and a very lively ensemble feel all the way through. Titles include "Afro Blue", "Anno Zero", "Agora Tento", "Coco Joao", "Passaro", "Scratch", "Deixa", and "Volta Pro Mar". CD

The tunes start out bubbling very spare and slow – with floating piano, moog, and other nice bits – and as the record progresses, the sound gets heavier, with some nice funky elements thrown into the mix! The whole thing's a brilliant exercise in understatement – not only one of the best soundtracks by Umiliani from the 70s, but also a perfect example of why we dig Italian soundtracks so much! Titles include "Volto Di Donna", "La Rinuncia", "Il Tuo Volto", "Nostalgia", "Le Ore Che Contano", "Cantata Per Maryam" and more. Schema CD also includes 12 alternate takes – with 24 tracks in all!

One of the richest, most expressive albums ever from the great Gal Costa – a set from her immediate post-Tropicalia years, and one that shows that she's got a lot more to offer than just a wild sense of experimentation! Gilberto Gil is the musical director here – with help from Rogerio Duprat and Arthur Verocai – and the album's got the lofty feel you'd expect from all three talents – a rich blend of all the modern developments in Brazilian music that had taken place in the 60s, but infused with a newly rootsy sense as well – one that takes the whole thing back to a personal, expressive territory that's really wonderful. Instrumentationincludes work on keyboards by Wagner Tiso and Tenorio Jr, plus a bit of guitar from Roberto Menescal – and Gal does a great version of Caetano Veloso's "Relance" – alongside other tracks that include "Passarinho", "Da Maior Imortancia", "India", "Volta", and the funky "Pontos De Luz".

Washington is joined by keyboarist Hubert Eaves for the record – and Eaves weaves (can we say that?) lots of snakey electric piano lines underneath Tyrone's soulful work on tenor, alto, and flute – making for a Bartz-ish mix that's totally great, and sometimes augmented by vocals. Other players include Idris Muhammad on drums, Billy Nichols on guitar, and Rene McLean on alto sax – and the whole thing's great – a wonderful mix of soul and spiritual modes from the time!

A mighty new effort from the amazing Tom Ze – a wild, heaving stylistic sprawl that's as dense and wonderful as his other recent efforts for Trama – but far more ambitious than anything he's done in many years! If you know anything about Tom Ze, you know that the man's aural art is quite difficult to describe, from the post-Tropicalia heyday to today! This set is a 16 song operatic suite that seems to be a stylistic sibling to his great (and quite rare) Estudando O Samba album from the mid 70s. Tom is taking on Greek mythology and age-old issues of gender oppression here – on an album produced with a sly, sinister groove by Jair Olivera. Incredible stuff – with all of the jerky, pulsating avant funk and leftfield grooves of Tom Ze at his recent best! The tracks are divided into 3 sections (Primero Ato, Segundo Ato and Terciero Ato) and include "Ave Dor Maria", "Estupido Rapaz", "O Amor E Um Rock", "Elaeu", "Para La Do Para", "Prazer Carnal", "Teatro (Dom Quixote)", "A Volta Do Trem Das Onze" and more!

Chris Watson's got a long legacy of experimental electronics – including work in The Hafler Trio and Cabaret Voltaire – and that certainly comes to bear here, as he turns out one of the noisiest sets we've heard from the Moog Recordings Library! Tracks have lots of those earthy textures of the Hafler Trio work – that point when electronic sources almost turn acoustic, given their grittiness and sense of darkness – that almost-tactile quality that Watson can do so well. The music was supposedly created by abstracting recordings in various locations – and titles include "Grand Central Terminal", "Room 343", "Central Park", "Times Square", and "Jamaica Bay". CD

✨✧ VariousBlack Fire New Spirits – Deep & Radical Jazz In The USA 1957 to 1982 ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 50s/1960s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 3LP ... Out Of Stock
Deeply spiritual jazz from the American underground of the 20th century – music that sits in a perfect space between straight jazz and more avant garde material – always reaching out in this really soaring, searching sort of way – but never too outside or free! Rhythms are at the core of most of these numbers – often modal elements, with especially strong basslines – or earthy percussion with strong Afrocentric inspirations, recast here in the huge wave of jazz experimentation of the 60s and 70s! Most tracks are from those key decades, but he set also features some overlooked gems from the 80s too – and a good deal of these tracks are from albums we hardly ever see anymore these days. As usual, Soul Jazz has done a stunning job with the notes and package – dovetailing with their book of the same name – and tracks include "Second Line March" by David Lee, "Flashback Of Time" by Creative Arts Ensemble, "Chang Chang Chang" by Yusef Lateef, "Utopia & Visions" by Don Cherry, "It's A Trip" by Last Poets, "Universal Spiritual Revolt" by Tyrone Washington, "In The Moog" by Harold McKinney, "Spaces & Things" by Doug Hammond, "Tzaddi Vau (part 1)" by Pheeran Ak Laff, and "Dealin" by Richard Davis.
