✨✧ Maxine BrownMaxine Brown – Best Of The Wand Years ... CD
Wand/Kent (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Maxine Brown on Wand Records is really something amazing – not just because she began her recording career at the label, but also because she never again hit the heights of these recordings! Brown was a really important singer with these sides – still partly in the class and poise of some of the jazz-tinged vocalists that came before her – but also able to open up with a deeper soul vibe that paved the way for Aretha Franklin and so many other singers to come in the second half of the 60s! The production and presentation of these tracks is wonderful, too – great songwriting, and top-shelf studio charts that only lift, and never drown the brilliance of Maxine's unique voice. Titles include "One In A Million", "It's Torture", "Let Me Give You My Lovin", "Yesterday's Kisses", "Oh No, Not My Baby", "Gotta Find A Way", "Baby Cakes", "Why Did I Choose You", "Misty Morning Eyes", "Since I Found You", "Losing My Touch", "If I Had Known", "It's Gonna Be Alright", and the completely fantastic "If You Gotta Make A Fool Of Somebody".

✨✧ EsquiresYou've Got The Power/No Doubt About It ... 7-inch
Wand, Late 60s. Very Good ... $5.99
Two excellent numbers from this extremely talented Chicago vocal group! The Esquires had harmonies that most other groups would die for – and they groove massively on "You Got The Power", a swinging uptempo number with that loping sound that the group pushed big on their first big hit. It's a wonder they can sing so well at such a groove – but they do, then pause for a mellow break on "No Doubt", a stellar little cut that reminds us of the Impressions best work from the time! 7-inch, Vinyl record

General CrookFever In The Funkhouse (voc, inst) ... 7-inch
Wand, 1974. Near Mint- ... $7.99
Nice electric funk single from the 70's, and one that's got a very different sound than the General's raw late 60's work from Chicago! This one's got some nice wah wah keyboards, and a good choppy groove that's got this cool popping instrumental sound on the flip! Very nice – and one of his best of the 70s! 7-inch, Vinyl record

A great little number from General Crook! "I'm Satisfied" is tight and mellow – Crook getting down with some slow vamping electric keys and bass – building up the tune in a wonderful way, and sounding a lot like Garland Green on some of his best early 70s sides! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Chuck JacksonEncore ... LP
Wand, 1963. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Fantastic work from the great Chuck Jackson – a singer who was really at the height of his powers during these early years of his career! Chuck's maybe best known for heartbreaking material – and the notes on the album actually refer, oddly, to these songs as "the crying towel variety" – but what Jackson brings to his music is this strong sense of pride and power – this depth of reserve that makes you feel like he'll never give up, no matter how hard the going might be – a quality that southern soul singers would soon poach from Jackson and other singers up north, and make their own style of music. Yet back at the start, few folks did it better than Jackson – as you'll Hear on cuts that include the wonderful hit "Tell Him I'm Not Home", plus "Lonely Am I", "Blue Holiday", "Getting Ready for the Heartbreak", "Don't Believe Him Donna", "Tomorrow", "Two Stupid Feet", "Another Day", and "Invisible".

Chuck JacksonMr Everything ... LP
Wand, 1965. Very Good- ... $9.99
Chuck Jackson may be Mr Everything in the title – but there's one thing he does especially well on this classic 60s album – deliver a rock-solid sort of heartbreaking soul – the sort that few others could touch at the time! Jackson often doesn't get his due in the history books these days – but records like these were landmark moments of pride, power, and open male emotion – of the sort that went onto inform generations of soul music to come – and help future artists find their way, guided by the emotional frankness of Jackson's approach! Backings are carefully balanced – tight, but never too polished to overwhelm Chuck's vocals – which soar out with a raw power that blows away Sam Cooke or some of Jackson's other contemporaries. Titles include "D-5", "I Need You", "Human", "I'm Your Man", "Tears Of Joy", and "Somebody New". LP, Vinyl record album

Wand, Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
The team of Chuck Jackson & Maxine Brown team up to reprise a set of 60s soul hits and earlier R&B tunes – all done in a style that's a lot harder than both of their individual work for the Wand label! Chuck sounds especially rootsy here – in a glimpse of the style he'd go for more in the 70s, with more of a down-home gutsy soul vocal approach. Titles include "Daddy's Home", "Let's Go Get Stoned", "Hold On I'm Coming", "I Need You So", "Something You Got", and "Maybe". LP, Vinyl record album

Wand, 1965. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Wand's two best vocalists both team up in a tasty set of duets that are a nice counterpoint to some of the other male/female teams of the 60s. Why? Well, because Wand's beautiful uptown production gives both of the singers a more sophisticated edge than you'd hear in some of the other, more kiddie male/female duets from the time. Titles include "Never Had It So Good", "Something You Got", "I Need You So", "Don't Go", "Cause We're In Love", and "We Find Him Guilty". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Kellee PattersonMaiden Voyage ... LP
Black Jazz, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
The most righteous album ever from Kellee Patterson – her first record, and a set that's way different from her more soul-based sides of later years! The album's got Patterson working in a wonderfully soulful approach to jazz – a style that's not unlike the earliest work by Dee Dee Bridgewater, especially her seminal Afro Blue album – and which mixes Kellee's unique vocals with some very hip backings that are right in the best Black Jazz mode! Instrumentation is from a loose jazz combo, and the tunes are a mix of jazzy numbers and a few tighter tracks – a really rich array of sounds that comes together beautifully in the hands of producer Gene Russell. Titles include a stellar version of Herbie Hancock's "Maiden Voyage", a great take on the Flip Nunez number "See You Later", and the tracks "Soul Daddy", "Be All Your Own", "Magic Wand Of Love", "You", and "Look At The Child".

✨✧ Freddie HughesSend My Baby Back (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Scepter/Kent (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Fantastic! This is the kind of soul that we still collect vinyl for and are all the more thrilled to see officially reissued by careful curators such as those at Kent UK! Freddie Hughes is one of the great lost voices of the 60s, and this sparkling album of soulful tunes is a real gem – loaded up here with incredible bonus tracks recorded in earlier duo sessions! He's not the same singer as the Freddie Hughes from Chicago – and he hailed from San Francisco, a very unlikely source for such great soul music. The session was recorded with Lonnie Hewitt (Cal Tjader's funky piano player) in SF – but it's got that perfect New York Wand/Scepter "deep soul meets uptown" sound. The tracks are mostly written by Hughes or Hewitt – and they are all pretty amazing, filled with hooks that just don't quit, and some heartbreaking verses that match the work of writers like Curtis Mayfield or Garland Green. Titles include "Send My Baby Back", "He's No Good", "Tonight I'm Gonna See My Baby", "You're My Everything", "Natural Man" (the Aretha classic remodeled for a male perspective) and "I Gotta Keep My Bluff In" and bonus tracks "Love Can't Be Understood" and "My Baby Came Back". Earlier in the decade, Freddie sang in San Francisco duos Casanova II with Wylie Trass and The Soul Brothers with Ken Pleasants. This CD includes "Maybe They're Right", "Love's Philosophy", "I Was A Fool" and "We Got To Keep On" by Casanova II, plus "Let Our Love Go On", "Love's Philosophy" (Pts 1 & 2), "Where's My Baby" and more by The Soul Brothers, many previously unreleased. One more bonus track: "Do The Philly" on the Music City label, credited to The Music City All Stars. CD

✨✧ Chuck JacksonThrough All Times ... LP
ABC, 1973. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Lost bit of soul by Chuck Jackson, recorded in LA in the early 70s, between his Wand hit years, and his later stuff on All Platinum. The sound is sort of a rootsy studio soul sound, if that makes any sense – but some of the tracks are also a bit funky. There's a great sample on the cut "Talk A Little Less", which is also a killer soul number itself – and other titles include "Maybe This Will Be The Morning", "Put A Little Love Away", "If That's The Way That You Want It", "Just a Little Tear", and "I Only Get This Feeling". Surprisingly great work from Chuck – and a record that should have been bigger, but which got buried when it came out. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousReal Thing – The Songs Of Ashford, Simpson, & Armstead ... CD
Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Mindblowing music from the trio of Nick Ashford, Valerie Simpson, and Jo Armstead – most of it composed and recorded in New York during the mid 60s – before Armstead left for the Chicago scene, and Ashford & Simpson went to work for Motown in Detroit! The three writers have a really beautiful way of putting over a tune – fresh lyrics that are perfect for the budding soul generation of the 60s – and which often get some production work from the members of the trio too, especially on some of the tracks here that were issued by Wand Records. The package does a perfect job of unearthing these early years – pulling together compositions by the three (and occasionally just by Ashford & Simpson) – and illuminating this period with notes that are as thorough as the selection of tracks on the set. Titles include "Dance Children Dance" by Mary Love, "The Shoe Won't Fit" by Betty Everett, "Look Away" by The Shirelles, "Are You Trying To Get Rid Of Me Baby" by The Crystals, "I Don't Need No Doctor" by Sandy Nelson, "Please Little Angel" by Doris Troy, "The Real Thing" by The Chiffons, "Smokie Joe's" by The Jewels, "Say It Again" by Marie Knight, "Looky Looky" by Candy & The Kisses, "Mr Creator" by The Apollas, "You're Absolutely Right" by Tina Britt, "I'm Satisfied" by Chuck Jackson & Maxine Brown, "Cry Like A Baby" by Aretha Franklin, "Same Old Feeling" by Jo Ann & Troy, "Only Your Love Can Save Me" by Betty LaVette, and "Love Ain't What It Used To Be" by The Diplomats.

✨✧ Brenda HollowayGreatest Hits & Rare Classics ... CD
Motown/Spectrum (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Great work from Brenda Holloway – one of the first strong female singers to work for Motown – even if she never stayed with the label long enough to get the same sort of fame as Diana Ross, Mary Wells, or some of her other contemporaries! Holloway had already recorded a bit before Motown – and she leaps into these cuts with a fully-formed style – a deep, rich vocal approach that rivals Maxine Brown at the same time – sometimes mixed with the same sort of strings and soul approach that Brown was using over at Wand Reocrds. The set features key tracks by Brenda that were issued at the time, plus some great rare numbers too – a total of 18 cuts that include "Operator", "When I'm Gone", "Who's Lovin You", "Where Were You", "Every Little Bit Hurts", "You Can Cry On My Shoulder", "I've Got To Find It", "Together Till The End Of Time", "I've Been Good To You", "I'll Be Available", "Starting The Hurt All Over Again", and "Hurt A Little Every Day".

✨✧ VariousInfluences – Compiled And Mixed By DJ Marky (2CD set) ... CD
BBE (UK), 1960s/1970s/1980s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really wonderful compilation tunes that influenced Sao Paolo's DJ Marky – who maybe known more for drum & bass and broken beats, but here assembles an eclectic 2CD set of classic Brazilian tunes, 70s soul, disco, funk, and floor shaking club grooves – a straight up collection of classics from across the groovy spectrum! If there's a hurdle that we hope compilations of this sort will clear, it's to connect a diverse platter of sounds into a cohesive groove, and Marky couldn't have done a finer job – giving us a clear window into his personal influences and crafting an excellent batch of music for us! Bossa, house, soul, funk and modern grooves blended perfectly! Most of the tunes are from the late 60s through the early 80s, with a few neo classics from later years – with a very subtle, nicely done mix of the tunes on the first CD that keeps a most of the original tunes intact – with 16 tracks including "Aquarius" by Cal Tjader, "These Eyes" by The Guess Who, "Samba Blim" by Tamba 4, "Funkanova" by Wood, Brass & Steel", "Look Ahead" by Aquarian Dream, "Here's To You" by Skyy and much more. Disc 2 is unmixed, with many of the standouts from the first disc and several other tracks including "It's All In Mr Magic's Wand" by Whodini, "Balanca Pema" by Ronald Mesquita, "Sugar Rock" by One Way, "Thousand Finger Man" by Candido, "Adeus, Maria Fulo" by Os Mutantes, "Honeysuckle Breeze" by Tom Scott & The California Dreamers and more!

"Same Change" is great too – with this righteous rhythm that chugs along and gives Moore this wonderful mix of deep and funky soul styles! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ VariousBirth Of Soul – Special Detroit Edition 1961 to 1964 ... CD
Kent (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The Detroit soul scene at the start of the 60s – music from a time before Motown was dominating the city's reputation, and a whole host of other great labels brought the motor city sound to the masses! The work here is quite a surprise if you're only thinking in terms of Northern Soul and some of the more uptempo Detroit groovers – as the work here burns on so many different levels – often with a style that reflects some of the nascent soul coming out of Chicago on labels like Chess and Vee Jay, the latter of whom is featured here amidst a range of other imprints that include Wand, Atlantic, Scepter, Time, Old Town, and Brent – all of whom released some of these early Detroit soul tracks as singles back in the day. In true Ace/Kent fashion, the set also features a few unreleased gems, plus a wonderful set of notes on the city's soul scene – alongside tracks that include "Nosey Folk" by The Del-Phis, "Answer Me" by Vivian Collins, "Can't We Get Together" by Harry Reid, "Here I Am" by Betty Lavette, "Shakin Fit" by The Pyramids, "That's No Way To Spend My Time" by The Pen Ettes, "Wedding Bells" by Melvin Davis, "You Lied" by Marva Josie, "Think A Little Sugar" by Barbara Lewis, "Just One More Time" by JJ Barnes, "My Letter" by Priscilla Page, "I Know How It Feels" by Laura Johnson, "I'm A Lonely Guy" by Timmy Shaw & The Sternphones, "Come Back To Me" by La Wanda William, "I Cried For My Last Time" by The Sonnettes, and "Tears Running & Falling From My Eyes" by James Lately.

Wonderful bossa and samba grooves – with a hip edge that reminds us a lot of Ed Lincoln's best records from the time – no surprise, since Falcao is actually Brazilian organist Walter Wanderley, working under another name! Wanderley, as Falcao, plays Hammond organ with a sparkly finish – grooving lightly over tight samba rhtyhms, with some jangly piano thrown into counterbalance his work on the keys. The set grooves like a non-stop 60s party – with some occasional vocals, lots of weird-sounding percussion, and a real focus on tight snappy songs with a beat. Titles include "The Blues Walk", "Tamanco No Samba", "Giramundo", "Upa Neguinho", "Liberdade Demais", and "Sao Salvador". LP, Vinyl record album

Herbie's playing Fender Rhodes with a sound that's at once cosmically beautiful, soulfully fragile, and spacily grooving – and he gets some excellent accompaniment from an all-hip group of players that includes Benny Maupin on bass clarinet and flute, Buster Williams on bass, Eddie Henderson on trumpet, and Julian Priester on trombone – plus percussion from Jose Areas and Ndugu Chancler. The roots of later classics like Sextet and Flood all start with this session – and the album contains 3 long tracks – "You'll Know When You Get There", "Ostinato", and "Wandering Sprit Song".

Warner, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used 2 CDs ... $7.99
Essential set that brings together all of Herbie's key transitional recordings for Warner Brothers! Herbie started his years for the label playing in a more straight-ahead funky style – with perennial sample fave recordings like "Wiggle Waggle", "Fat Mama", and "Tell Me A Bedtime Story". Soon, however, he moved into more spacey territory – of the sort that he would later examine fully on his Columbia recordings of the early 70s. Tracks in this vein include "Sleeping Giant", "Water Torture", and "Wandering Spirit Song". The whole set features 3 full albums – Fat Mama, Crossings, and Mwandishi – and it's a great 2CD set filled with hard to find jazz funk classics! CD

SandboyWanderlust ... CD
Hinterland (Germany), 2004. Used ... $4.99
A heck of a great little record – the kind that never seems to come around often enough! Sandboy step forth with some really wonderful keyboard work on the set – mostly using Fender Rhodes to set up the groove, but following through with strong vocals, jazzy riffing, and an overall feel that's incredibly solid! The album's easily one of the best debuts we've heard in the past few years – clearly informed by the legacy of the Compost Records and London scenes, but also stepping for with strong Brazilian elements, warm jazzy playing, and a sound that's all its own. Great stuff all around, with tracks that include "Inner Light", "Pomegranate", "Written In The Leaves", "Viver", "The Hike", "BSB", and "Lua Nua". CD

Walter WanderleyBrazil's Greatest Hits ... LP
GNP, 1980. Near Mint- ... $11.99
Brazil's greatest hits – by one of Brazil's greatest keyboardists! For this set, Walter Wanderley picks up Fender Rhodes and moog, in addition to his usual organ – and breezes his way through a wonderful set of tunes that's brimming with bossa standards, all done in Wanderley's classic lightly grooving style. There's some nice added percussion on the set that takes the tunes past the sound of the Verve years – and titles include "Wave", "A Felicidade", "Meditation", "Mas Que Nada", "Berimbau", and "Canta De Ossanha".

Canyon, Early 70s. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A strange lost "comeback" album for Walter Wanderley – but a great one! The set was recorded recorded in the US in the early 70's, and with the same sweet electric sound that Wanderley was using on his last A&M/CTI albums! Walter plays organ and electric piano, and the group includes Fender bass and percussion – making for a smooth electric groove tha gets a bit funky at times. Tracks include "Camel Juice", "Angelique", "Nobody", and "Good Time". Very groovy! LP, Vinyl record album

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!

Polskie Radio (Poland), 1962. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Things really took off at Poland's Jazz Jamboree in 1962 – as the festival began its fantastic 60s run of bringing together some of the hippest modernists on the planet! Forget any hoke you might think from the "jamboree" name – because instead, the event was a legendary matching of talents – one that often rivaled the hippest jazz festivals anywhere else in Europe during the decade! This second volume from 1962 features the quintet of trumpeter Andrzej Kurylewicz with Jan Wroblewski on tenor and Wojciech Karolak on piano, performing "Ancle's Dance"; the Jan Tomszewski Big Band on "Laura" and "Walking Home"; the trio of pianist Atilla Garay on "The Wind Is Blooming Over The Danube" and "Under The Mountains Of Chitero"; the sextet of pianist Vadim Sakun on "Blues"; the Jerzy Matuskiewicz Swingtet on "Jeanine"; and singer Wanda Warska with the Wojciech Karolak trio on "I'll Wind" and "Time After Time".

The legendary Nat Adderley is definitely in good company here – a group with excellent work on alto from Antonio Hart – a player who comes off in a very different way than the famous alto of Nat's late brother, Cannonball! Antonio seems to open up some nicely dark currents in Adderley's music – underscored by the piano work of Rob Bargard, who can do a great job of shading things in from below – while the whole group moves with great rhythm work from the team of Walter Booker on bass and Jimmy Cobb on drums. Tunes include two great Bargard originals – "Rob's New Tune" and "War Zone" – plus versions of "Rwanda", "Sermonette", "Corcovado", and "Unit Seven". CD

Ely ArcoverdeO Orgao Que Canta Sambas Vol 2 ... CD

Some of the weirdest, wildest organ work we've ever heard – and that's coming from folks with a record collection stuffed with Jack McDuff, Jimmy Smith, and even Sun Ra! Ely Arcoverde is a bit in the territory of Brazilian 60s organ contemporary Walter Wanderley – especially in the way that he mixes his melodies with samba rhythms – but he's also got a very different approach on the keyboard, and often uses the instrument to "sing" – in ways that are very much like the "canta" promised in the title! At some points, we'd swear that Ely was almost using an early variation of a vocoder – not that the sound is 80s, but that he gets this really cool "voice" out of the instrument – as it moves between percussion, occasional chorus vocals, and some nicely jazzy instrumentation. Titles include "O Morro Nao Tem Vez", "Cidade Maravilhosa", "Madame Fulana De Tal", "Samba Da Minha Terra", "Canta Maria", "Tem Bobo Pra Tudo", and "Agua Com Areia". CD

A fantastic early album from Jorge Ben – and one that's also a bit obscure, given that it was one of the few that he didn't cut for Philips Records during the first decade of his career! The album's one of Jorge's most upbeat, most lively – with the kind of ebullient mix of samba and soul influences that he brought to his first big hits – but recorded here in a way that's maybe even more frenetic, especially when piano lines spin out quickly next to his incredible vocals – with a style that's almost soul jazz at times! The whole thing's wonderful – a record that matches, if not tops any of his other 60s albums – and titles include the killer "A Jovem Samba" – worth the price of the album alone – plus "Nascimento De Um Principe Africando", "Menina Gata Augusta", "Si Wanda", "Rosa Mas Que Nada", "Amor De Carnaval", and "Todo Colorida".

✨✧ Tim BuckleyLook At The Fool ... LP
DiscReet, 1973. Near Mint- ... $16.99
The last album that Tim Buckley ever gave the world – and a great leaping-off point for speculation about what he might have done, had he not left the planet too soon! Tim's actually beginning to explore a bit of funk in his music here – still using that amazing voice with all of its range from the early Elektra years – but often set to backings that feature heavy drums from Earl Palmer, tight bass from Chuck Rainey, and keyboards from Mike Melvoin – all cats who can be tight, but never slick – and whose groove is more than loose enough to let Buckley direct the whole proceedings. Given that Tim has an occasional raw rasp, and a very offbeat way with his lyrics, the mix of elements is actually not that far from the funk of Betty Davis on her first two albums – with a similar shrug towards any easy genre categorizations. Titles include "Freeway Blues", "Look At The Fool", "Tijuana Moon", "Mexicali Voodoo", "Down In The Street", "Wanda Lou", and "Bring It On Up". LP, Vinyl record album

The set features 2 records – Samba Nova Concepcao and Impulso – both recorded in the early months of 1964, both featuring Deodato playing Hammond organ and piano over some very tasty bossa grooves! The backing here is by large groups – and the sound is really wonderful – a bit like the best work of Walter Wanderley, with fast samba and bossa rhythms grooving along, and Deodato coming over the top on his magical keys! With 23 tracks in all, the set's wonderfully overstuffed with great numbers – and titles include "Samba No Congo", "Samba Novo", "Cheers", "Esperanca", "Ela E Carioca", "Pouca Duracao", "Straits Of McClellan", "Nana", "Estamos Ai", "Adriana", "Baiaozinho", and "Muito A Vontade".

Morning Trip (Netherlands), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... About March 1, 2020 (delayed)
Beautifully mellow sounds from William Eaton – a 70s hippie-esque figure who wandered the desert in Arizona, and had a great talent for building his own stringed instruments! Here, William's working on an assortment of self-created guitars – one with 6 strings, one with 12, and one with a whopping 26 strings – dubbed an "elesion harmoniom", and sounding a lot more like a harp than anything else! The style of these tunes is spare and often spacey – played with sounds of nature in mind, often in ways that flow out in the breeze, and come back with a slight little echo. The home made ("private press", if you will) nature of the original album is expanded nicely here with additional notes and photos – and the CD features a total of 18 tracks in all.

Yet these guys aren't totally Bay Area, either – as they've got more of the east coast roots that echo their start in the Philly scene a few years before – almost that mix of tightness and hipness that graced some of the best Long Island groups who were finding their way into New York during the same generation. There's plenty going on here – especially some nice songwriting, and a way of appreciating influences from blues and soul music – yet never coming across as a blues rock band at all.

Dreamy sounds from the enigmatic Emerald Web duo – a pair who've attained legendary status over the years for their sublime blend of keyboard styles and more acoustic elements – an approach that often has flute layered over keys, in a way that's both spacey and organic at the same time! Emerald Web were maybe a bit out of time – too late to be prog rockers, but also too early to be part of any new age or 4AD-type scenes – which is what makes the instrumental musings on a record like this so great – as they really stand apart from other periods of similar expression, and have a vibe that's very much the duo's own. There's a lightly poetic quality to the work, but one that's never too drippy – and titles include "Voice Of The Sage", "Earthrails", "The Moving Mountains", "Stellar Wanderer", and "Beyond The Towers".

Sarah Webster Fabio was a hip 70s poet with a very righteous sound – and she's working here with funky backings by a tight group that includes family members, in a style that's similar to early 70s work by artists like Wanda Robinson and Camille Yarborough – both of whom also mixed together funk and poetry! The album's got a massive funky cut called "Sweet Songs" – the kind of groover we never tire of, with tight drums, great guitar, and wonderful vocals by Sarah herself. There's lots of other great tunes too – with titles that include "Juju For Grandma", "Still A Red Hot Axe", "Chromo", "If We Come As Soft Rain", and "Jujus/Alchemy Of The Blues". CD

You can hear the early touch of the styles that would wander too strongly into the wrong territory a decade later – but here, things are all pretty darn fresh – wrapped around song themes that feel like very new ones for Gabriel, in ways that almost have you feeling him pick and choose the topics as the record moves on. Production is tight, but never too uptight – and titles include "On The Air", "DIY", "Exposure", "Animal Magic", "Flotsam & Jetsam", "Perspective", and "White Shadow". LP, Vinyl record album

The lineup here is a bit unusual – as Dave Holland makes a surprise appearance on bass, alongside Bill Goodwin on drums – both very dynamic players who are a great match for Hal's work in the lead – especially when he's working these long-flowing chord progressions that are really beautiful – filled with soul and spirit, and very powerful throughout!

Randolph composed the songs on the set, but they're performed with a very improvisational spirit by a larger ensemble of musicians – working in modes that echo the ragas promised in the title, but often with a freer, more spiritual style too – one that makes heavy use of the percussion in the large lineup! The players are far too many to name – but the set does feature work from Harris Einsenstadt on bata, Hamid Drake on drums, Graham Haynes on cornet, Afram Fever on tenor, and Jay Gandhi on bansuri – really just the tip of the instrumental iceberg, given how many musicians are involved.

Sweet grooves from Harry Mosco – once the leader of The Funkees, but stepping out here with some wicked work from the London scene at the end of the 70s! The album's got a snapping electric vibe – sometimes clubby, but with more of a funk feel overall – thanks to some heavy basslines that really give the best cuts a kind of darkness – as do the horns, which create these down-turning inflections that are quite different than the usual sort of Afro-styled groove! Things get pretty freewheeling as the album moves on – and there's a criss-crossing of modes that almost reminds us of some of the work that Ice cut on the French scene of the time.

Klaus Nomi's standing here on the cover with the oversized cabaret costume he used famously backing David Bowie – but this early solo album definitely has the singer very much in his own territory overall! Some of the songs are a weird reworking of older European cabaret mode, or Brechtian song ideas – given this strange post-punk twist, and set to rockish backings that are a very unusual contrast to the more operatic leanings in Klaus' vocal style – almost this Liquid Sky moment where an amnesiac opera singer wanders into a downtown New York club and happens to take the stage. Other tracks are moodier and more spacious – and work together with the straighter rock songs to make the whole thing feel like a larger conceptual album, even though that sort of thing wasn't really what Klaus, or the rest of the scene were going for at the time.

Poncho Sanchez & Terence BlanchardChano Y Dizzy ... CD
Concord, 2011. Used ... $8.99
A pretty wonderful tribute to the pioneering talents of conga great Chano Pozo and jazz trumpet giant Dizzy Gillespie – led by Poncho Sanchez and Terrence Blanchard! The set gets off to an incredible start on a medley in which the players so deftly blend Latin percussion, vocals and rhythms with Diz-indebted jazz – and that high quality is maintained throughout! Exciting, passionate play from the leaders and a group that includes Tony Banda on bass, Rob Hardt on sax, David Torres on piano, Francisco Torres on trombone and others. Includes "Chano Pozo Medley: Tin Tim Deo/Manteca/Guachi Guaro", Dizzy's incredible "Con Alma" and "Groovin' High", "Wandering Wonder", "Siboney", "Dizzy's Dashiki", "Nocturna", "Promenade", "Arinanara" and "Jack's Dilemma".

SandboyEchoes ... CD
Hinterland (Germany), 2005. Used ... $8.99
A great second chapter in the career of Switzerland's Sandboy – a collection that features a few key new songs, plus great remixes of work from the Wanderlust album and a few other Sandboy remixes of other work! The remixes alone are worth the price of admission – because they expand the original Sandboy groove with a variety of spacey soul touches that we really like – but the new tracks really top off the set even more, and are a great reward to all of us who have been waiting for more material! New tracks include "Call Out" with Randolph Matthews on vocals and "Common Cause" with Clara Hill – and remixes include "Lua Nua (Smiles Ahead three trees rmx)", "Les Eclairs (Leroy Schlimm rmx)", "Written In The Leaves (Break Reform rmx)", "BSB (Gerd's 4lux rmx)", and "Viver (Butti 49 re-fusion)" – plus remix tracks "So Real (Sandboy rmx)" by Gerd with Vanessa Freeman and "Brain Mousse (Sandboy's moisturizing rmx)" by Plastyc Buddha.

Patricia ScotOnce Around The Clock ... LP
ABC, 1959. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A great 50s vocal session – for a number of reasons! One of the strongest is Patricia herself – a fresh-voice singer who's without hoke – backed by some moody arrangements from the Creed Taylor Orchestra. Even better is the selection of tunes – which includes a number of really unusual songs that push past the obvious standards – many of them in a dark mood that really fits the theme of the album nicely. Titles include "Do It Again", "Wandering Swallow", "Why Baby Why", "Nothing At All", "Speed Of Light", "Just Once Around The Clock", and Patricia's own composition "Let's Sit Down & Talk It Over". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono pressing with deep groove. Cover has some edge wear, small seam splits, bumped corners, and some staple holes.)

Rod St. JamesHas Anybody Seen The Superstar ... CD
P-Vine (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy ... $22.99
A beautiful album of free soul tracks – with a mixture of sweet 70s soul and slightly folksy rock, in a blend that's hard to describe, but really wonderful! We'd shelve this one next to Alzo & Udine, Ellen McIlwaine, Batteaux, and other obscure early 70s crossover artists who never made the big time – and like them, Rod St James is a brilliant talent who really deserves wider recognition, even within the realm of soul collectors. The album features all original compositions by Rod, with arrangements crafted with the help of Cash McCall – and titles include "Has Anybody Seen The Superstar?", "Wandering Minstrel", "Mr Coffey", "Now Is The Time", "Pisces Child", "Born To Ride The Restless Wind", and "Let It Shine".

McCoy TynerExtensions ... CD
Blue Note, 1970. Used ... $12.99
Brilliant work as a leader from McCoy Tyner – and easily one of his most righteous albums ever – a true batch of spiritual gems that really takes the John Coltrane legacy one step further! Most numbers build with a modal vibe that's more Impulse Records than Blue Note – and players on the set include Alice Coltrane on harp, Gary Bartz on alto, Wayne Shorter on tenor and soprano sax, Ron Carter on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums – a wonderful lineup that really holds tightly to the soaring, soulful energy that Tyner spins from his piano – a mode that's never too far out or avant, yet which stretches to the skies with a heavenly vision. The whole thing's wonderful – and tracks include "Message From The Nile", "The Wanderer", "Survival Blues", and "His Blessings". CD

Lumiar/Sony (Brazil), 1998. Used ... $14.99
A fantastic collection that was part of a huge return to fame for Marcos Valle during the 90s – a time when he was emerging from obscurity and recording great music of his own – and also finally getting his due from some of his Brazilian contemporaries too!
