VariousStax/Volt Revue Vol 1 – Live In London ... LP
Stax, 1967. Very Good- ... $11.99
A legendary live set from the 60s all-stars of Stax Records – a performance in London in the late 60s, as the label follows Motown's lead on taking its big names overseas! The lineup is legendary, and most of the tunes are familiar by the artists, but get nice fresh versions here – sometimes a bit quicker, and sometimes a bit rougher – both of which makes a nice change from the iconic classics. Titles include "Green Onions" by Booker T & The MGs, "Philly Dog" by The Mark-Keys, "Knock On Wood" and "If I Had A Hammer" by Eddie Floyd, "Hold On I'm Comin" and "I Take What I Want" by Sam & Dave, "Shake" by Otis Redding, and "Yesterday" by Carla Thomas.

Bar-KaysGotta Groove (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Volt/Craft, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 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

✨✧ DramaticsDramatically Yours ... LP
Volt, 1974. Sealed ... $4.99
A great third album from The Dramatics – a really strong effort that retains many of the best elements of the earlier records, particularly the mellow soul side of the group! Arrangements are by Jimmy Roach and Wade Marcus, and the record's got a sweet Detroit harmony sound on nearly all the cuts – handled in a way that's not nearly as baroque as before, with the kind of tightness that you might hear from The Manhattans during the same period – and which points the way towards some of their work for ABC. Titles include "And I Panicked", "I Made Myself Lonely", "Toast To The Fool", "You've Got Me Going Through A Thing", and "It's So Hard Trying To Get Over You". LP, Vinyl record album

Volt, 1969. Very Good ... $3.99
Two great tracks from the "Blind Alley" era! "So I Can Love You" has a fantastic sound – with these slow funky beats underneath a madly riffing organ, dipping and turning as the girls' vocals come in to sweeten up the whole thing! "Got To Be The Man" has a hipper sound than some of the girls' other work – with guitar and bass bubbling along under the really righteous vocals of the track! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Otis ReddingDock Of The Bay ... LP
Volt, 1968. Very Good ... $24.99
A very important crossover soul album – a huge hit for Otis Redding that was released after his tragic death in December 1967 – but it's also hard to say if it would have had the impact it did had Redding not passed while the LP was still in production. In a way, the record sort of set the stage for the mythologies of pop stars that would surround the tragedies in the coming years of the late 60s – with liner notes on the back by Jon Landau about the impact of Redding's work and passing on the rest of the music industry, which would be even more charged with meaning to folks buying the album at the time, who certainly knew that Redding had cut "Dock of the Bay" a few days before his death, and had missed its meteoric rise to #1 after his passing. And in fact, the album itself is more of a loose collection of tracks pulled from singles and other sources to cash in on Redding's passing – and includes odd numbers like "The Huckle Buck", which had previously appeared on a Stax promo album, or "Tramp", his famous funky duet with Carla Thomas. Other titles include "I'm Coming Home", "Ole Man Trouble", "Open The Door", and "Let Me Come On Home". LP, Vinyl record album

Volt, 1965. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the best instrumental records to come out of Memphis, and a real kicker by the funky band that went down with Otis Redding in the tragic plane crash in 1968. The leadoff track is the group's amazing hit "Soul Finger", a stormin' instrumental with a wailing brassy sound that influenced a generation with its "charge" kind of groove. Lots of other nice ones, too – like "Bar-Kays Boogaloo", "Knucklehead", "Theme From Hell's Angels", and "Pearl High". The best of the best of Stax helped out, too! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Otis ReddingDictionary Of Soul - Complete & Unbelievable ... LP
Volt, 1964. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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.

✨✧ EmotionsChronicle – Greatest Hits ... CD
Volt/Stax, Early 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A nice collection of early work by The Emotions – pulled from their 2 early albums for Volt, as well as a few singles for the label. The set came out in 1979, and is clearly designed to catch the eye of late 70s customers hopped up on the group's disco hits – but the tracks were all recorded in the early 70s, and have a great Memphis soul sort of approach. Titles include "Baby I'm Through", "Stealin Love", "The Best Part of A Love Affair", "So I Can Love You", "Show Me How", "From Toys To Boys", and "Baby I'm Through". 14 tracks, and many are produced by Isaac Hayes & David Porter!

✨✧ Otis ReddingSoul Album ... LP
Volt, 1966. Very Good- ... Out Of Stock
Classic stuff by Otis – and a very appropriately titled album! The record's from the prime mid 60s years of Redding's recorded output – before Atlantic started pumping out everything he ever recorded, and when the folks at Stax were using all their talent to put together a well-conceived full LP. You'll definitely hear that conception in full effect here – as the album's a beautifully sculpted batch of tracks that really defines the best that Otis could offer during the prime of his career. Includes classics like "Just One More Day", "Good to Me", and "Any Ole Way", plus "Treat Her Right", "Scratch My Back", and "634-5789". LP, Vinyl record album

Volt, 1971. Sealed ... Out Of Stock
A great second Stax set from Margie Joseph – produced by Fred Briggs with a sound that's as full-on and righteous as the first! The groove here is definitely trying for some of the heights over at Atlantic Records at the time – possibly with a bit of a detour into Detroit – and there's a soaring sensibility to most of the music that really works perfectly with the range of Joseph's voice! The Bar Kays provide some great rhythms, the production is tight, and Margie's vocals are wonderful throughout. Tracks include "My World Is Empty Without You", "Strung Out", "Takin All The Love I Can", and "That Other Woman Got My Man & Gone". LP, Vinyl record album

Bar-KaysBest Of The Bar-Kays Volume 2 ... CD
Mercury, Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... $3.99
Late Bar-Kays – when the group were getting the "rock" out of their grooves, hitting the bass a lot heavier than before, and opening up in that slicker funkier style of the late 70s. Given that the group had a big hand in defining the sound and style of mainstream funk in the years before this work, they're still very much on top of their game – sounding as soulful as ever, even though they're not as dirty or gritty as they were in the Stax/Volt era. Titles include "Let's Have Some Fun", "Do It", "Spellbound", "Flying High On Your Love", "Dirty Dancer", "Sexomatic (12" mix)", "Whitehouseorgy", "Unforgettable Dream", "Today Is The Day", "She Talks To Me With Her Body (12" mix)", and "I Lean On You/You Lean On Me". 16 cuts in all!

✨✧ 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. Used 3 CDs ... Just Sold Out!
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)".

Tiger Lily/Mr Bongo (UK), 1976. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
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"! CD

That's Loos/Armstrong, not Louis Armstrong – a late 90s Dutch group who improvise freely on both electric and acoustic elements – with a style that makes the record one of the most offbeat albums ever released on the Okka Disk label! In some ways, the combo almost tie together Dutch traditions of free jazz and electronic experimentation – with a lineup that features Gerald Bowhuis on piano, Huib Emmer on guitar, Johan Faber on drums, Patricio Wang on bass and guitar, and Dennis Rudge on voice – plus leader Peter Van Bergen on tenor, bass clarinet, contrabass clarinet, and some mighty cool electronics! 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 always did a pretty good job of shopping its big artists overseas – where they met with extremely enthusiastic response, as you'll hear in this classic live album recorded by Otis Redding! The basic structure of the songs is very similar in time and presentation to the studio versions – but the band is very lively, many numbers are taken at faster tempos, and Otis is working himself to death to please the screaming crowd. Titles include "Day Tripper", "Try A Little Tenderness", "Respect", "Can't Turn You Loose", "My Girl", and "Shake". LP, Vinyl record album

Hi Records/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... About December 18, 2019
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.

Malaco/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $13.99
A heavenly set of southern soul – a package that pulls together a wealth of rare and unreleased singles from the Malaco label – that important Jackson, Mississippi imprint that took on the deeper sounds of the 70s – after the Memphis and Muscle Shoals scenes were losing steam! Some of the artists here are ones who would have ended up on Stax or Volt, had the labels still been going at the time – and instead found a great home on Malaco, a company who also had a great legacy of work in southern blues, and really knew how to bring out the best in a strong-voiced singer! Yet despite that side of the label, the music here is all-soul all the way through – not some of the soul/blues hybrids that Malaco could do well, and instead amazing deep soul, handled with a new sort of sophistication for the 70s! The sound is wonderful throughout – and the set features loads of cuts we'd never heard before – 18 titles that include "Overflowing" by Jewel Bass, "Ain't No Love For Sale" by Tommy Tate, "Sour Love Bitter Sweet" by Joe Wilson, "Lovin On Borrowed Time" by Anita Mitchell, "Got To Find The Nerve" by Hank Sample, "Two Of A Kind" by Dorothy Moore, "Once Upon A Love Affair" by Chuck Brooks, "That's How Much I Love You" by Eddie Houston, and "Talkin About Love" by George Soule.

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!

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.

✨✧ MirettesWhirlpool/In The Midnight Hour ... CD
Uni/Playback, 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Double dose of heavy soul by this under-recorded late 60s combo – originally known as The Ikettes before splitting with Ike Turner and becoming The Mirettes! They're a truly storming group, with a sound that's a lot heavier than a lot of the sweeter girl groups from earlier years. The girls have a mix of southern deep soul vocals with some other more northern-oriented harmonies – and they kind of feel like a cross between the Sweet Inspirations and the Lovelites, with a bit more funk thrown into the mix. Whirlpool was produced by Clarence Paul, Ernie Shelby, and Dick Cooper – who also wrote some songs for the group – and titles include "I Miss You Baby", "If Everybody'd Help Somebody", "Heart Full of Gladness", "Ain't You Tryin' To Cross Over", and "Sister Watch Yourself". The feel on In The Midnight Hour is also hard and southern – almost like the best Memphis work by the Emotions, or some of the more obscure female groups on Stax/Volt. There's also a few oddball tracks and covers on this one – and titles include "Take Me For A Little While", "Keep On Running", "In The Midnight Hour", "I'm A Whole New Thing", and "The Real Thing".

✨✧ Junior ParkerLike It Is/Honey Drippin Blues ... CD
Mercury/BGO (UK), 1967/1969. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pair of late 60s gems from the bluesy singer Junior Parker – back to back on a single CD! Like It Is features standout soul from the great Junior Parker – a singer who started out in blues, and already had a big legacy of music for Sun and Duke Records by the time of this Mercury set – but maybe sounding even more amazing here with some soul touches in the backings! The set was produced by Bobby Robinson, and arranged by Gene Bowlegs Miller – and has a Memphis recording pedigree that's a bit like the best way that Stax/Volt was mixing blues and soul in the late 60s! There's still some of the slower-burning Duke moments, but there's also some great sock-soul tracks too – on titles that include "Come Back Baby", "Just Like A Fish", "Country Girl", "Sometimes I Wonder", and "Cracked Up Over You". Honey Drippin Blues is killer work from Junior Parker – an artist who was already great in his early Duke Records years – but one who really seemed to take off even more as the 60s moved on! On records like this, Parker picks up a strong undercurrent of funky soul – a groove that's a perfect fit for Mercury's Blue Rock label – which often did a great job of merging the worlds of blues and soul – especially in the music of Junior Wells. Production has lots of nice Chicago soul touches, and at times Junior's vocals move into a territory that's almost a bit like the groove of Tyrone Davis at the time. Great stuff throughout – and titles include "I Got Money", "Lovin Man On Your Hands", "Easy Lovin", and "I'm So Satisfied". CD

✨✧ Roy C HammondSex & Soul ... CD
Mercury/Playback, 1973. Used ... Out Of Stock
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".

Virgin (UK), 1984. Very Good+ ... $14.99
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

Cabaret VoltaireRed Mecca ... LP
Rough Trade, 1981. Near Mint- ... $19.99
Cabaret Voltaire at a perfect point in their career – a time when their overall sound was still pretty raw, and awash in these dark analogue electronics – but also getting a focus it never had before, the kind of rhythmic intensity that would make the group a huge influence on other acts for years to come! The album's a perfect portrait of the Northern UK scene at its best – moodiness that never falls into goth cliches, electronics that distill the experiments of the 70s with post-punk energy, and rhythms that point to the dancefloor but never in a way that's really dance music at all – just pulsatingly hypnotic, in a way that somehow makes the other qualities even more eerie! The whole thing's wonderful – one of our favorite albums ever by the Cabs – and titles include "Landslide", "A Thousand Ways", "Red Mask", "Split Second Feeling", and "A Touch Of Evil".

The cover's black and white, but the music is very colorful – sweet 70s sounds in the best style that we love from Stelvio Cipriani – which includes some especially great use of keyboards and piano! Many of these tracks have that mellow funk mode that really set Cipriani apart from the rest of the 70s Italian scene – tracks that can move slow, yet still have a nice punch – thanks to great use of electric basslines, and just the right space on the keyboards! The CD is done in the usual super-high quality that we love from Chris Soundtrack Corner – with excellent sound, great packaging, and a total of 21 tracks from the original score. CD

Tim MaiaO Melhor De Tim Maia – Vou Pedir Pra Voce Voltar ... CD
Polydor/Universal (Brazil), 1970s/Early 80s. Used ... $7.99
A nice 14 track sampler of the best work by Brazilian soul singer Tim Maia from the early 1970s through the early 1980s. Unlike many other Brazilian singers Maia's style has a lot of US soul influences in it, especially as he moves more into his modern soul work of the early 80s. The sound is certainly different than the majority other Brazilian titles we stock from the same era, but it's also unique from US soul music, though you can certainly here how Maia's taken a lot of the influences from that music, and turned them into his own crazy style of Brazilian pop. Titles include the tracks "Gostava Tanto De Voce", "Voce", "A Festa Do Santo Reis", "Primavera", "Azul Da Cor Do Mar", "Reu Confesso", and "Eu Amo Voce". CD

Beatball (South Korea), 1968. Sealed ... $19.99
Wonderfully groovy stuff – and one of the best soundtracks ever by the great Italian composer Armando Trovajoli! The record has a very similar feel to his legendary Seven Golden Men soundtrack – with a groovy swinging jazz vocal group (I Cantori Moderni) over jazzy riffing and groovin – on upbeat tunes that are very cool, with a mod 60s style throughout! The whole thing swings mightily – and kind of feels like what might have happened if the Swingle Singers ever recorded with Lalo Schifrin – his best jazz-infused instrumentation, and their wonderfully dynamic vocal approach. Titles include "The Getaway", "Seven Times Blues", "The Big Brain", "Jail", and "Seven Times Seven". LP, Vinyl record album

Alston/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
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".

VariousPour Me A Grog – The Funana Revolt in 1990s Cabo Verde ... CD
Ostinato (UK), Late 90s. New Copy ... About December 1, 2019 (delayed)
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.

Transversales Disques (France), 1974. New Copy ... $19.99
Boy, that cover alone is more than enough to draw us in – a frizzy-headed guy sitting amidst a whole host of 70s studio gear – but we've also always loved the music of Francois Bayle, which has always been some of the most striking in the French electronic tradition! The work here is all previously unreleased – and side one features a host of spare, stark tracks that has Bayle working with a portable set of 70s electronics – with a feel that's more intimate than the scope of the image on the cover might make you expect – as Bayle creates all these weird and wonderful cycles of sound on the album's short tracks. Titles include "Ennemi Intime", "Voltage Stomp", "Quadrille", "Crepuscule", "Train Noir", and "La Chose". The work on side two is maybe a bit closer to a tradition that would include Pierre Henry and Pierre Schaeffer – and titles include "Marpege", "Foliophonie", and "Cinq Dessins En Rosace".

The work here is a nice bridge between earlier Sky Records modes and the rising tide of the German new wave – especially those corners of that scene that have gotten a lot of attention in the newly-titled cold wave generation of the time! The tunes are all instrumental, and nice and spare – with maybe elements that hearken back to the analogue electronics of very early Human League and Cabaret Voltaire – tuneful and song-based, but still really moody and dark too.

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".

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". The whole thing's incredibly beautiful – and it's got Gal in a wild bikini cover, too! CD

El (UK), 1961/1962. New Copy ... $3.99 13.99
Some of the earliest work ever recorded by Elis Regina – issued here on a set that brings together her first two albums in one package! The sound here is quite different than the Elis Regina sound of the 70s – a lot brighter and more youthful, without as many of the somber overtones – yet still with an undeniable charm and a sense of joy that's really amazing! Even at this young age, Elis is a tremendous interpreter of tunes – and the titles mix together bossa and pop arrangements, hitting a style that's far lighter than some of the mainstream Brazilian divas of the period.

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.

Part of the situation is that much of the work came out as cheap 45s, or cassette-only releases – which didn't lend themselves to the same level of collecting – and other groups who started dark hit the bigtime and went onto great fame – like Human League or Cabaret Voltaire – but for every one of those, there were a hundred left behind in the shifting sands of time – only to be discovered by the tireless efforts of the current generation! Titles include "Universe" by The Lord, "X Cell" by Silicon Valley, "Oscillations" by The Disintegrators, "Red Suit" by Lives Of Angels, "Destination" by Echophase, and "Club Paris" by Berserk In A Hayfield.

The depths of the early 80s underground never fail to amaze us – because while the late 70s punk rock years are constantly being reissued and compiled, the electronic scene of just of a few years later is still so largely undiscovered! Part of the situation is that much of the work came out as cheap 45s, or cassette-only releases – which didn't lend themselves to the same level of collecting – and other groups who started dark hit the bigtime and went onto great fame – like Human League or Cabaret Voltaire – but for every one of those, there were a hundred left behind in the shifting sands of time – only to be discovered by the tireless efforts of the current generation! Titles include "Universe" by The Lord, "X Cell" by Silicon Valley, "Oscillations" by The Disintegrators, "Red Suit" by Lives Of Angels, "Destination" by Echophase, and "Club Paris" by Berserk In A Hayfield. LP, Vinyl record album

VariousCold Waves Of Color Vol 4 ... CD
Color Tapes/Lion, Early 80s. New Copy ... $8.99
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".

Factory/Warner, Late 70s/1980s/Early 90s. New Copy 8LP ... $143.99 149.99
A massive package of work from the legendary Factory Records label – that important Manchester home to Joy Division, New Order, and a host of other important UK groups in the post-punk years – a company that got plenty of our pocket change when we were young! Factory was always a cut above the rest – a company that let its artists be freely creative and always adventurous – as they recorded music that went on to have a huge impact on the shape and sound of modern music on both sides of the Atlantic, with a legacy that lasted long after the label closed its doors in the early 90s. This huge 8LP set brings together lots of magic moments from Factory – not just hits, but some great underground gems – titles that include "Deaf" by Crispy Ambulance, "Watching The Hydroplanes" by Tunnelvision, "Time Goes By So Slow" by The Distractions, "Digital" by Joy Division, "Brighter" by Railway Children, "Tasty Fish" by The Other Two, "Kinky Afro" by Happy Mondays, "Compressor" by Biting Tongues, "All At Once" by Stockholm Monsters, "Trickery" by Kalima, "Yashar (John Robie mix)" by Cabaret Voltaire, "Talk About The Past" by The Wake, "Cool As Ice" by 52nd Street, "Taste What's Rhythm" by Swamp Children, "Art On 45" by Royal Family & The Poor, "Knife Slits Water (LP version)" by A Certain Ratio, "Temptation" by New Order, "Messidor" by Durutti Column, "Love Tempo" by Quando Quango, "It's Hard To Be An Egg" by John Dowie, "Dirty Disco" by Section 25, "Nightshift" by The Names, "English Black Boys" by X O Dus, "Shack Up" by A Certain Ratio, "Eletricity (Factory version)" by OMD, and "Dolphin's Spurt" by Minny Pops.

VariousIndustrial Accident – The Story of Wax Trax! Records (with 40 page book) ... LP
Wax Trax, 1980s/1990s. New Copy ... $25.99 26.99
A great little companion to the excellent film about the famous Wax Trax record store and record label – a set that brings together rare and unreleased material from some of the artists who made the company legendary back in the day! The album's the first in many years to bear the Wax Trax name – and it's like a great leap way backwards, past the darker later days of the label – to a time when the Chicago imprint was a wellspring of creative activity in the darker side of the spectrum – and a key link between our city and underground scenes around the globe. Titles include "Animal Nation" by Revolting Cocks, "Envoye" by Young Gods, "Me & My Ding Dong" by Pankow, "A Daisy Chain 4 Satan (acid & flowers mix)" and "Acid Xians" by My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult, "Leben Tod" by Laibach, "I Want More" by Fini Tribe, "Vogue (apart version)" by KMFDM, "Shipwreck" by Chris Connelly, and "Tonight We Murder (orig version)", "Cause We're In Love Again", and "Everyday Is Halloween (live)" by Ministry.

✨✧ EdanBeauty & The Beat (2019 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Lewis, 2005. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Edan returns with a new set of his sample heavy wizardry – this time out steeped in late 60s pysch out flourishes, yet still sporting the thickest breakbeats available. His rhyme style is both ridiculous and genius – with tongue twists that pay homage and blast forward simultaneously. Guests include Mr Lif, Insight, and Percee-P. Tracks include "Funky Voltron", "I See Colours", "Torture Chamber", "Promised Land", "Time Outt", "Fumbling Over Words That Rhyme", "Making Planets", "Murder Mystery", "Rock And Roll", and "Smile".

✨✧ Eddie PalmieriVamonos Pa'l Monte (remastered edition) ... CD
Tico/Fania, 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Brilliant 70s work by Eddie Palmieri – easily one of his greatest records of the decade! The album features Eddie really showing off his jazz chops on a number of longer tracks – tunes that bring together some of the spirit forged during the Harlem River Drive era, with some of the more descarga-driven styles of his Coco albums. Eddie plays both electric and acoustic piano on the session – and the group is small and tight, with a sound that really compresses the energy of the grooves on the album! One that we'd recommend in a minute, with great tracks that include "Vamanos Pa'l Monte", "Viejo Socarron", "Comparasa De Los Locos", and the excellent "Revolt/La Libertad Logico". CD

✨✧ VariousDisco Discharge – Mondo Disco ... CD
Harmless (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pulsating, breathless and soulful batch of Mondo Disco from the US, UK and Eurpean scenes of the late 70s & early 80s – a deep disco compilation in the Disco Discharge series from Harmless UK! This one has tracks that go far deeper than the mainstream disco groovers of the era – artier and more avant club numbers that don't sacrifice an ounce of dancefloor readiness – tracks by Liquid Liquid, Patrick Juvet, Cerrone, Space, Eruption, Disco Circus, Technique and more. 23 tracks on 2CDs: "Got A Feeling (Original 12" Mix)" by Patrick Juvet, "Doctor Kiss Kiss (Original 7" Mix)" by 5000 Volts, "African Blood (Original 12" Mix)" by Supermax, "Call Me Tonight (Original Album Version)" by Cerrone, "My Baby's Baby (Original Album Version)" by Liquid Liquid", "Deserts Of Mars (Original Album Version)" by La Bionda and more.

✨✧ Fats ElpidioSamba Da Madrugada ... LP
Masterplay (Brazil), Early 60s. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
A killer batch of bossa and samba tracks – played by the group of Fats Elpidio, with a unique style that mixes piano and organ at the same time! The sound is great, with the two keyboards trading solos back to back, while tight driving rhythms punch out loud and fast underneath. Similar to work by Ed Lincoln, but with a slightly more elaborate sound. Titles include "Seu Amor", "Historia", "Volta Por Cima", and "Nos E O Mar". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ John FaheyJohn Fahey Volume 6 – Days Have Gone By (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Takoma/4 Men With Beards, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ 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.
