✨✧ Bulk Vinyl Records60 Count Box of Random Bulk Vinyl ... Misc
Good ... $4.99
A completely random assortment of 12" records – both LPs and singles – some in good shape, some totally beat up! We make these boxes at random, and seal them tightly – and even we don't know what's in them. Keep in mind that this vinyl has been through the regular racks – and the Bargain Basement – and some of it might have defects, some may have damaged or missing covers, and the vinyl will mostly likely be a mix of 12" singles and full albums. Think of the contents as "raw material" or "space fillers" – vinyl to be used for projects, decorations, or even things like art installations or set dressing. At less than a dime a record, the price is certainly right! Misc

Bulk Vinyl RecordsBulk CDs – At Least 100 Random Bulk CDs ... Misc
Good ... $4.99
Here's a heck of a deal if you're into CDs – at least 100 completely random bulk CDs from our bargain basement – all packaged together! The CDs are titles that hit the basement for a variety of reasons – some are titles we just don't sell well, some might have a flaw in the artwork, and a rare few might have an actual defect, like a skip on a track – although these are usually very few. The styles vary as much as the CDs – so you'll get a mix of many genres, as random as the artists and titles included in the box – very much like the boxes of random vinyl we sell here too. At this price, you're paying a nickel or less per CD – so you might even think about re-using the discs in creative ways – or maybe changing out the better jewel cases for some of the damaged ones in your collection!

An early stunner from Black Ivory – a great groover, done with kind of a bouncy lilting groove that has lots of bass, and a good mix with the group's harmony vocals! One of the funkiest from Fatback – "Goin' to See My Baby" is especially tough, and starts out with a massive breakbeat on the intro, then jumps into wicky-wacky basslines. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Freddy FreshFreddy Fresh Presents The Rap Records – Revised 2nd Edition ... Book
Freddy Fresh, 2007. New Copy ... $14.99 39.99
If you liked the first volume of this essential book, you'll love this revised edition – because it's almost 3 times bigger, and stuffed with great new features! The book's a lifetime labor of love for Freddy Fresh – an extensive discography that's got to be the most definitive book on early hip hop we've ever seen! The vintage of the titles listed in the book is 1979 to 1994 – and as Freddy says in the preface, there's a few records listed that may fall outside the rap genre or that time span, including some disco and electro numbers – but that's okay by us! The book's got tons of label scans – plus entries listed alphabetically by label and then in order by catalog number – and this exhaustive project reads like your dream want-list for years and years to come. Plus, in addition to the label and record listings, there's appendices with old school flyer scans, top picks from DJs and producers all over the globe, lists of resources for finding records and Freddy's own personal lists for records, including his "5 star" rated records, and songs and singles arranged by topic. An absolute must-have for any die hard fan of hip hop! Revised edition is 3 times bigger than the first one – 740 pages, with over 1500 new photos, and also features an updated section on bootlegs vs originals, New York City record store photos, info on overseas labels, an Ebay auction guide, a comprehensive cross-index, and lots more great bits.

Love UnlimitedLove Unlimited – The Uni, MCA, & 20th Century Records Singles 1972 to 1975 ... CD
Universal, Early 70s. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
A fantastic selection of work from one of the hippest girl groups of the 70s – the mighty Love Unlimited trio, three singers who all worked under the genius of Barry White in his prime! Unlike other girl trios of the time, who often used an older soul mode refitted with disco grooves – sometimes acting more like a chorus than a lead act – Love Unlimited always brought their full vocal strengths to play, and do a fantastic job here working in modes that rival some of the best male harmony groups of the early 70s – especially the sweet soul groups from New Jersey, New York, and Philly. And yes, Barry does kick up the groove a bit at times, but even then things are usually more in a midtempo mode, not a disco one – which makes for tremendous sounds throughout. This is the first-ever proper collection of the girls' singles from the early 70s – and titles include "Oh Love Well We Finally Made It", "Fragile Handle With Care", "Are You Sure", "I Should Have Known", "Is It Really True Boy Is It Me", "Walkin In The Rain With The One I Love", "Under The Influence Of Love", "It May Be Winter Outside", "I Love You So Never Gonna Let You Go", "I Belong To You", "So Nice To Hear", "People Of Tomorrow Are The Children Of Today", and "Share A Little Love In Your Heart".

The styles range from soaring soulful sounds that more than earn the usage of the word Orchestra, to funky instrumental soundtrack work, to string-laden soul that hardly ever sounded so funky – and some sweet, sly blends of it all, Classic all the way. Includes Rhapsody In White, the legendary Together Brothers soundtrack, White Gold, Music Maestro Please, My Sweet Summer Suite, My Musical Bouquet and Super Move Themes-Just A Little Bit Different – 7 classic albums on CDs in sleeves that serve is mini-replicas of the original LP sleeve – in a nice little box, too!

Love Unlimited OrchestraLove Unlimited Orchestra – The 20th Century Records Singles 1973 to 1979 ... CD
20th Century/Universal, Mid 70s. Used 2CD ... $13.99
One of the greatest soul instrumental groups of the 70s, finally given their due – here in a massive package that brings together all their great singles done under the guidance of Barry White! White was a genius at the time of these tracks, and he worked with Love Unlimited at a level that was different from other groups of its nature – and which really helped pave the way for so many styles of soul modes to come! Love Unlimited Orchestra was a large studio group with plenty of strings, but they always worked with a great White-crafted groove – forged in the years before disco, and an undeniable influence on that mode – but often cut with the sophistication of blacksploitation soundtrack styles too – which makes for a really fantastic sound. The package brings together all the group's singles from their great mid-70s run, then also includes a few of their 12" mixes too – when they could really stretch out. A fantastic amount of music for the price – with titles that include "Sweet Moments", "Rhapsody In White", "Barry's Theme", "Satin Soul", "Find The Man Bros", "Theme From Together Brothers", "My Sweet Summer Suite", "Theme From King Kong", "Always Thinking", "Midnight Groove", "Only You Can Make Me Blue", "Baby Blues", "Forever In Love", "Brazilian Love Song", "Hey Look At Me I'm In Love", "Theme From Superman", "Whisper Softly", "Theme From Shaft", "Don't You Know How Much I Love You", "Hey Look At Me I'm In Love (disco version)", "Brazilian Love Song (disco version)", "Theme From King King (disco version)", "My Sweet Summer Suite (disco version)", "Blues Concerto", and "Don't You Know How Much I Love You (disco version)".

Lee MooreGram Of Boogie – The Story Of Lee Moore – Score Records & LM Records Memphis 1979 to 1989 (5LP Box Set) ... LP
Past Due, Late 70s/1980s. Near Mint- 5LP Box Set ... $59.99
A lost legacy in clubby soul – a huge amount of work from singer/producer Lee Moore – a post-Stax talent on the Memphis scene, and an artist who also made a bit of a mark on the New York scene! The "boogie" in the title is a very good indication of the groove going on here – as many tracks are in a post-disco mode that's solidly funky club from the pre-house years – lots of basslines, and sometimes a bit of keyboards and more electronic touches, depending on the setting! The range of work here is really wonderful – as the set begins with a 2LP set of all the singles that Moore recorded during the time – then goes on to feature three rare albums too, each showing a different side of Lee's talents! One of the sets is from his unusual Le'Gamby group – an electro soul outfit with a very strong New York streetbeat vibe – and another album features Lee's late gospel group Divinity – one of those underground combos who still worked with plenty of secular soul in the mix! There's also a reissue of Lee's rare album Free & Easy – originally issued by the Score label in Memphis, as was much of this material – and the whole thing comes together with a detailed set of notes on the man and his music. Titles include "Get Off (part 1)", "Do You Feel Like A Party (12" mix)", "Reachin Out For Your Love (12" mix)", "Let's Do It", "Secret Lover", "The Coast Is Clear, "Blue Skies", "One Lover To Another", and "Jammin On A Gram Of Love" by Lee Moore; "Double OO Too Sweet", "Whippin", "Sweet Baby", and "Asmeralda" by Le'Gamby; "Ten Toes Up Ten Down", "What Do You Do For Love", "You Can Bet I'll Get You Yet", and "What's In The Dark" by Subway featuring Wave, "The First Family" and "Slow Motion" by The First Family; "Watch Over Me", "Stay", "He's Coming", and "Come To Me" by Divinity; and "Changing Times" by Alien.

Mark RibowskyDreams To Remember – Otis Redding, Stax Records & The Transformation Of Southern Soul (hardcover) ... Book
Liveright, 2015. New Copy ... $8.99 27.95
A hefty book on the great Otis Redding – one of the best soul singers of all time, even though he left this planet all too soon! Redding's career on record was less than a decade long, but marked by a huge amount of work – not just time in the studio, with the legendary Stax Records – but also countless hours on the road, where Otis honed his talents and perfected his craft – while additionally putting both himself and his talents at risk. Author Mark Ribowsky looks at these years in wonderful depth – mostly with a focus on Redding, but also a strong look at Stax as well – as the partnership between the two was one of the most important in soul music at the time, and continues to have an impact all these many years later. Book is 366 pages, with copious notes at the end – hardcover, and with some black and white images. Book

Spyder TurnerIs It Love You're After – The Whitfield Records Years 1978 to 1980 (Music Web/Only Love) ... CD
Whitfield/Big Break (UK), 1978/1980. New Copy ... $6.99 13.99
The overlooked second chapter of Spyder Turner's career – two albums back to back on a single CD! First up is the Music Web album – a fantastic revival in sound for Spyder Turner – a Detroit singer who cut some material for MGM earlier in his career, but never at a level that fully took advantage of his range! This time around, he's back in action in the late 70s, and working with producer Norman Whitfield – who creates this rich, soaring sound for some of Turner's tracks – allowing the singer to move his deep soul style into even more sophisticated territory. Other tunes are warm mellow numbers that show a maturing mode, too – and Gene Page handled the arrangements with a nice sort of Cali 70s vibe. Titles include "Stop", "I've Changed", "Get Down", "I've Been Waiting", "Reincarnation", and "Is It Love You're After". On Only Love, Spyder Turner is again working with producer Norman Whitfield – whose moved on from his Detroit roots to Cali – and works with the sort of soaring sound that he brought to his other late 70s albums on his own label – such as work by Undisputed Truth or Rose Royce! As with both of those groups, Whitfield allows the arrangements to get big, but never in a way that interferes with the quality of the vocals – an approach that really seems to help Turner find the direction he might have otherwise been lacking. Gene Page helps on arrangements – which furthers the sound of the set – and titles include "God Bless The Lady On The Radio", "Only Love", "Let's Rock", "You Can Always Count On Me", "You're So Fine", and "Sunshine".

Barry WhiteLove's Theme – The Best Of The 20th Century Records Singles ... CD
20th Century/Universal, 1970s. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
Barry White was one of the undisputed geniuses of 70s soul – a completely new force that helped the music find even more soul and sophistication than ever before – all while still sounding plenty funky too! And while Barry's albums of the decade were mega-hits – as were his productions with Love Unlimited and the Love Unlimited Orchestra – the man also had a great way with a 7" single – and somehow managed to pack all the punch and power of a full soul orchestra performance into the space of a few short minutes – all while topping the tunes with his own majestic vocals! Barry also completely redefined masculinity at the time – adding in this positive, prosperous, all-encompassing mode to his music – often at a level that was a far cry from soul modes of the 60s, and which paved the way for so many transformations to come. Here, you'll get a heady helping of his great singles of the 70s – some of which you'll know as classics, others which come as a nice surprise – all working together in one massively mighty collection. Titles include "Never Never Gonna Give You Up", "Playing Your Game Baby", "I'm Qualified To Satisfy You", "I'll Do Anything You want Me To", "You're The First The Last My Everything", "Honey Please Can't Ya See", "What Am I Gonna Do With You", "Baby We Better Try To Get It Together", "Your Sweetness Is My Weakness", "I Love The Songs I Sing", "September When I First Met You", "It's Ecstasy When You Lay Down To Me", "Don't Make Me Wait To Long", "Love's Theme", "I'm Gonna Love You Just A Little More Baby", and "I've Got So Much To Give".

Not your usual set of oldies – because in the hands of Ace Records, "rock n roll" and "doo wop" become completely new terms! The package goes way beyond simple hits and famous numbers – and offers up a great batch of unusual tunes from the less-known end of the musical spectrum during the big rock n roll years of the late 50s – forgotten numbers from both R&B singers and rockers, often served up in styles that are a fair bit rawer than material making the charts at the time. Titles include "That's Show Biz" by Dale Wright & The Wright Guys, "Rock Everybody" by The Teen Queens, "Let's Rock N Roll" by The Cadets, "Wild Bird" by The Jive-A-Tones, "59 Volvo" by Vernon Green & The Medallions, "Shortnin Bread Rock" by Etta Jones, "We're Gonna Rock N Roll" by Joe Houston, "The Rock A Round" by Paul Peek, "Cold Heart" by The Penguins, "You Cheated" by The Slades, and "Honey Love" by The Jayos. 20 tracks in all!

A treasure trove of gospel from the New York scene – all recorded for the Revelation Records imprint – a partner label to Bobby Robinson's legendary Fire & Fury labels! Given Robinson's strong ear for early soul, R&B, and blues, there's a lot of rootsy power in these recordings – a way of producing both the vocals and instrumental passages in styles that definitely showcase Revelation's importance during these key birth of soul years – with lots of modes that would end up in secular soul a few years later! The CD's overflowing with gems that are sure to please both soul and gospel fans – 27 tracks that include "Guide Me" by The Soul Finders, "Sinner Like Me" by Christine Clark, "I Want To Go Home" by Drexall Singers, "If I Live Right" by Five Singing Stars, "Prodigal Son" by Mighty Gians, "I Know Who Holds Tomorrow" by Dr Coleman & Her Gospel Singers, "Pick Up Your Bed" by Twilight Gospel Singers, and "I've Got A Home" by Holy Wonders.

A great little package that finally gives the Liverpool scene its due – especially during a time when many other English cities are credited with helping to shape the sound of modern music! Late 70s Liverpool had little going on since the Beatles and Brit Invasion groups – but the rise of Inevitable Records gave the city a great voice to challenge the other punk and post-punk material of the time – and stood as an important stepping stone for a number of acts who went on to much bigger labels during the 80s! This package brings together all the a- and b-sides of Inevitable, along with replicas of all their cool 45rpm sleeves – important, as the label mostly just issued 7" singles – but with a force that has become legendary over the years. The package features 2CDs that bring together these singles, by groups who include Wah Heat, Dead Or Alive, Modern Eon, Nightmares On Wax, China Crisis, It's Immaterial, Faction, Freeze Frame, The Light, Builders, Box Of Toys, and Venus Adore – plus a full extra CD of Peel Session material from the early 80s by some of the biggest groups in the set!

Chess/Universal (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $11.99
Incredible sounds from the Chess Records catalog – not the blues that you might know the label for, but a huge range of funk, soul, and jazz tracks from the headiest years of the 60s and 70s – a time when the Chicago scene was really turning out some incredible musical hybrids! As you'd guess from the title, all the cuts here have had a new life in recent years – thanks to samples by hip hop artists or other producers – but the original grooves are even better than the tracks that used them, and come together here to make one of the most mindblowing collections of Chess material we've ever heard! The package is nicely heavy on sounds from the Cadet/Concept years of the label – with more than a few contributions from producers Charles Stepney and Richard Evans – and the package features 42 wonderful tracks – including "Fonky Thang Diamon Ring" by The Dells, "Windmills Of Your Mind" by Dorothy Ashby, "I Am The Black Gold Of The Sun" by Rotary Connection, "Jelly Jam" by Jack McDuff, "The Getaway" by Alvin Cash, "In My Body's House" by Gene Chandler, "Cross Country" by Archie Whitewater, "Memory Band" by Rotary Connection, "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" by Jimmy Ponder, "Inside Out" by American Gypsy, "Go Go Power" by Sugar Pie DeSanto, "Shake It Up" by The Vibrations, "Up Above The Rock" by Ray Bryant, "Bad Moon Rising" by Bo Diddley, "Shoo Be Doo Be Doo Be Do Da Day" by Eddie Fisher, "Humpin Bumpin & Thumpin" by Andre Williams, "Who Got The Number" by Pigmeat Markham, "Walk On By" by Jo Ann Garrett, "Chocolate Candy" by Soulful Strings, "Got To Get Your Own (7" version)" by Reuben Wilson, "Hanky's Panky (7" version)" by Shirley Scott, "Liberation Conversation" by Marlena Shaw, "Look Of Love" by Monk Higgins, and "Think About It" by Odell Brown & The Organizers.

VariousCool Heat – The Best Of CTI Records ... CD
CTI/Robinsongs (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $12.99
A great introduction to the legendary CTI Records label from the 70s – a groundbreaking imprint for both jazz and soul, and a company who helped a whole generation of musicians find a new way forward! The set's got a really great balance – with both some of the funky jazz and soulful vocal cuts recorded by the label and it's partner imprint, Kudu – and over the course of the 25 tracks on the extended collection, you'll not only hear a great evolution in grooves for the 70s generation – but also a fair bit of tracks that have gone onto new lives as sample cuts too! Titles include "Mama Wailer" by Lonnie Smith, "Say You Love Me" by Patti Austin, "2001 – Also Sprach Zarathustra" by Deodato, "Jaws" by Lalo Schifrin, "Could Heaven Ever Be Like This" by Idris Muhammad, "Supership" by George Benson, "Baltimore" by Nina Simone, "Polar AC" by Freddie Hubbard, "Home Is Where The Hatred Is" by Esther Phillips, "It's Going To Take Some Time" by Gabor Szabo, "Flute Song" by George Benson & Joe Farrell, "Forecast" by Eric Gale, "Baretta's Theme" by Ron Carter, "Breakout" by Johnny Hammond, "Wildflower" by Hank Crawford, "Knucklehead" by Grover Washington Jr, "Grand Prix" by Fuse One, "Shoogie Wanna Boogie" by Dave Matthews, "Be Yourself" by Kenny Burrell, "Sugar" by Stanley Turrentine, "Red Clay" by Freddie Hubbard, "Super Strut" by Deodato, and "Follow Your Heart" by Joe Farrell.

VariousFashion Records – Style & Fashion – A-Class Top Notch Hi Fi Sounds In Fine Style ... CD
Fashion/Soul Jazz (UK), 1980s/1990s. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 22.99
An overdue look at London's Fashion Records label – an important reggae imprint that was to the British scene of the late 20th Century what Trojan was in the 70s! But Fashion also had a quality that did them one better – they recorded and issued work that originated in the UK – documenting a reggae scene that had grown to be as important as Kingston by that time – thanks to trans-Atlantic flows of vinyl, and a fair bit of immigration from the West Indies too! The music here is strongly in the styles that really exploded in London during the stretch – and early digital dancehall material is offset by sharp-edged jungle rhythms, and warmed up by some lover's rock too – but always with a quality that's earthy, and very close to the streets. The label was run out of the basement of the Dub Vendor record store, which gave them a great ear for changes in sound and styles – and they've got a fascinating story that's fully documented here in the notes, in best Soul Jazz fashion. Titles include "Let's Dub It Up" by Dee Sharp, "Dance Pon De Corner" by Papa Face featuring Red Man, "Shot Fe Bust (Marvellous Cain rmx)" by Poison Chang, "Wikkeda" by General Levy & Hard N Pure, "Played By This Ya Sound" by Bunny General, "You're Nicked" by Laurel & Hardy, "Rising To The Top" by Dee Sharp, "To The Bump" by Papa Face & Bionic Rhona, "As You See It" by Cutty Ranks, "Bubble With I" by Asher Senator, "Ruffest Gun Ark (DJ rap mix)" by Top Cat, "DJ Business" by Papa San, "You'll Never Need Somebody" by Janice Walker, "DJ Jamboree" by Papa Face with Keith Douglas, "Heat" by General Levy, and "Sweet Soul Rocking" by Carlton Lewis.

VariousFor Discos Only – Indie Dance Music From Fantasy & Vanguard Records – 1976 to 1981 (3CD set) ... CD
Fantasy/Craft, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3CD ... $31.99 35.99
Rare singles from the glory days of the American club music scene – most of which were only issued as promo release – hence the "for discos only" in the title! The package looks at the wealth of material issued by the Fantasy and Vanguard family of labels in the late 70s – imprints that have never fully gotten their due, in comparison to companies like Salsoul or Philadelphia International – even though they made an equally huge contribution to the world of funky grooves! In fact, given that Fantasy owned Prestige and other jazz labels at the time, they also had a longer heritage in soulful music – which often made some of their singles these real mini-masterpieces in sound. Vanguard was equally unusual, but in a different way – as disco and club were relatively new to their catalog – which almost seemed to give them a freedom to be a bit more experimental than some of the bigger companies working the dancefloors. The result is a great collection of really creative, really upbeat material – almost all of which is nice and extended, and presented here on the rare 12" single versions. Titles include "Til You Surrender (special rmx)" by Rainbow Brown, "Rock Creek Park (rmx)" by The Blackbyrds, "No One Can Do It Like You (12" special Shep Pettibone rmx)", "Chill Out (12" version)" by Free Expression, "I Don't Know What's On Your Mind (special 12" mix)" by Spiders Webb, "Over & Over (special 12" disco)" by Sylvester, "Turn The Music Up (12" disco)" by Players Association, "Beat Of The Night (special 12" disco)" by Fever, "Party Vibes (special 12" disco)" by Ike Turner & Home Grown Funk, "You've Got Me Dancing In My Sleep (special remaster)" by Frisky, "Boogie City (special 12" disco mix)" by Phil Hurtt, "Space Bass (special 12" disco)" by Slick, "Mondo Man (12" version)" by Roni Griffith, "It's Music (special 12" disco)" by Damon Harris, "Always There (special 12" disco)" by Side Effect, "For Your Love (special 12" disco)" by Idris Muhammad, "Straight To The Bank (special 12" disco)" by Bill Summers, "Boogie With Me (12" disco)" by Poussez, "Don't Know What To Say" by The Blackbyrds, "I'm The One" by Rainbow Brown, "I Got The Feeling (Patrick Cowley megamix)" by Two Tons O Fun, "Dance (special 12" disco)" by Paradise Express, and "Savage Lover (12" disco long vocal)" by The Ring.

VariousGoosebumps – 25 Years Of Marina Records ... CD
Marina (Germany), Late 90s/2000s/Early 2010s. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99
A fantastic celebration of a wonderfully groovy record label – a company that first caught our ears with their new material in the late 90s, then went on to make some wonderful reissue compilations over the years as well! The sound of Marina Records is always firmly grounded in the past – partly the Sunshine Pop of the late 60s, or that special British indie sound of the early 80s – and throughout their 25 years, the label has had uncanny taste and amazing ears – able to track down artists from around the globe who might never have gotten exposure otherwise, and bring them together in a surprisingly unified sound over the course of their many releases. This special anniversary package features a number of previously unreleased tracks by Marina artists, plus some new exclusive tracks too – and titles include "Star Wish" by The Aluminum Group, "Digging The Fault Line" by Brent Cash, "Low Shot" by Malcom Ross, "The Norfolk Broads" by Pale Fountains, "You'll Never Steal My Spirit" by Colin Steele Quartet, "Crocker At LAX" by Crocker, "Already Won" by Ashby, "Time Is Right" by The Pearlfishers, "Multi Kolored Mini Skirts" by Peter Thomas, "Breezy" by Marina Unlimited Orchestra, "Pamplemusen" by Die Zimmermanner, "Up To My Eyes" by Jazzateers, "McCarran Airport" by The Free Design, "Listen To Me" by Paul Haig, "Miles Apart" by Sarah Cracknell, "Only With You" by Norman Blake, and "If Love Could Last Forever" by The Bathers.

Alshire/Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 3CD ... $24.99
A totally wonderful look at the late 60s Alshire label – an unusual cheapo imprint on the LA scene of the time, one that was mostly created to cash in on mainstream trends – but which somehow managed to make some amazing music in the process! Alshire was one of those discount store labels that tried to fool shoppers into thinking they were buying something hip – but instead sold them its own homegrown versions of psych, garage, or other groovy styles of the time. Yet despite these sneaky motives, the label actually found a way to bring together really interesting studio talents for their efforts – which has resulted in a legacy that's made some of their albums collectors treasures over the years – even if the process and contents are sometimes a mystery! This set does a great job of getting to the heart of the mystery – by offering up a huge booklet of notes that includes way more information than the label ever gave you with their records – notes on their history, the background performers, and other information – along with 82 tracks from the label's catalog. CD 1 features three full albums – the self-titled Animated Egg psych classic, plus Sounds Of Today and Astro Sounds From Beyond The Year 2000, both issued under the name of 101 Strings. CD 2 is dedicated entirely to The California Poppy Pickers – maybe the best-known group to come from the Alshire stable – with 26 tracks that include a few originals, and their fantastic reworking of other folks' tunes. CD 3 features 26 more tunes – recorded by artists who include The Mustang, Icarus, Doctor Marigold's Prescription, Autumn, Modern Sounds, Jane & Eve & The Creations, John Bunyan's Progressive Pilgrims, and The Heads Of The Family. Fantastic – and long overdue! CD

Wax Trax, 2019. New Copy ... $18.99
A beautiful tribute to one of the greatest record stores of all time – and a place that was crucial in the formation of what we do at Dusty Groove too! Wax Trax Records began as a store in Denver in the mid 70s – influencing a generation of young punks in that city, before then moving to Chicago a few years later – where it became a key outpost for all sorts of underground culture from around the globe! We grew up as young shoppers in the store, and it forever changed the way we thought about music – and this fantastic film really gets at everything that made the place great, and then follows the growth of Wax Trax as they launched a label that gave them an even stronger global impact by the end of the 80s. The film's also tells the love store of the couple behind the legend – Jim Nash and Dannie Flesher – and features commentary and contributions from an all-star lineup that includes Steve Albini, Dave Grohl, Jello Biafra, Al Jourgensen, David J, Richard 23, Ian Mackaye, Trent Reznor, and many others – plus an insane amount of vintage footage that reminds us how exciting a city Chicago used to be! Special bonus – this package also features 75 more minutes of extra footage – longer parts of the interviews used to create the film. DVD

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.

Dub Store (Japan), 1960s. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98
Fantastic sounds from the years before reggae became the international sound of Jamaica – music from the island nation's jazz scene, which was at the crossroads of so many different styles of music – jazz from the north, Latin rhythms from Cuba and Puerto Rico, and a fair bit of other Caribbean sounds too – all of which filter through the wonderful collection of music on the set! The title breaks down the different genres featured – but there's often a surprisingly unified feel to the whole record too – one that stands partly as a testament to the musical strengths of all the performers involved! In the days before Trojan and Studio One, Federal Records was an important Jamaican label – and did an especially great job of capturing some of the sounds that were part of that nation's club culture and resorts in the 60s. Titles include "Angelima" and "Like Falling In Love" by Ernest Ranglin, "Profile Cha Cha" and "Rhumbina" by Cecil Lloyd & The Starline Troubadors, "Estrellita" and "I Love Paris" by The Lennie Hibbert Combo, "Tis Wonderful" by Eric Grant, "Linstead Market" by Baba Motta & Ernest Ranglin, "Wheel & Turn Me" by Bertie King, "Go Fife Go" by Count Owen, "Mango Walk" by Bertie King & Ernest Ranglin, "String Of Pearls" by Auldey Williams & His Orchestra, "Solas Market" by Baba Motta, and "Monday Monday" by Winston Turner Quintet.

Great work from the Society Hill label of Philly soul producer Butch Ingram – a force on the city's scene for many decades, and one of the few who are still turning out the kind of cool, classy sound that was Philly's big shift at the start of the 80s! Some of the artists here are older, and represent that later post-disco mode in Philly on labels like WMOT and Philadelphia International – and others are younger, but fit right into the groove – thanks to a unified Ingram style that keeps things warm and mellow throughout! Titles include "Give It Up" by Jean Carne, "Like A Lover" by Toni Richards, "I Love You" by Brandi Wells, "I'm So In Love With You" by Barbara Mason, "Good Morning Heartache" by Vicki Austin, "One Last Memory" by Vanessa Farley, "Waiting For My Lover" by Roz Ryan, "I Close My Eyes" by Carla Benson, and "I Wish You Love" by Coretta Davis.

Dub Store (Japan), Early 60s. New Copy ... $20.99 22.98
Very early ska from the Jamaican scene – served up here on a host of rare recordings from Federal Records – an important precursor to Studio One, Treasure Isle, and better-known imprints from later in the decade! While the rhythms here are often hitting the familiar mode of the style, there's also other elements that really show things in progress – including a more fluid sense of Caribbean styles, with elements from other island scenes coming into the mix a bit more than once the Jamaican scene firmly hits its stride. There's also some great jazz inflections, too – as part of that moment when some of the key early players were making their own music, but during an era of American soul jazz influence too – as you'll hear on titles that include "Free Form" and "Like Falling In Love" by Ernest Ranglin, "One Look" and "My Daily Food" by The Maytals, "You Made Me Warm (acoustic)" by The Sharks, "All Of Me" by The Monarchs, "Blackman Ska" by Eric Monty Morris, and "Baby Please Don't Go" and "I Am Blue" by Eddie Perkins.

Let's Dance/Still Music, Mid 80s. New Copy ... $9.99
A cool collection from the earliest years of the Chicago house music scene – a time when the city's grooves were maybe as beholden to the styles from overseas as they were the new vibe going on in the Windy City! Lots of these tracks have heavier beats than basslines, and almost reflect some of the ways that New York street soul was using drum machines in the years after hip hop got going – but there's also an approach that shows that strong Chicago love of import dance records from the UK, Italy, and beyond – with modes that were borrowed strongly, then reshaped to make the more familiar grooves that influenced generations to come. As with other Still Music projects, the package is as much a history lesson as a music compilation – a great look into a tiny little label, with detailed notes, and tracks that include "Jump Trax Mix Down" by Duane Thamm Jr, "Single Girl (voc)" by Knight Action with Sedenia, "R-Trax (special mix)" by Knight Action, "Crazy Or Not (inst)" by Mike Tomaselli, "Nobody (club mix)" by Joey O & Out Of Control, "I Like That In You (dub)" by Belinda Hoover, "Crazy Or Not (virgin)" by Mike Tomaselli, "R-Trax/D-Rail (single dance mix)" by Knight Action featuring Sedenia, and "Jump Trax Mix Up" by Duane Thamm Jr. CD

A cool collection of cuts from a time when the South African scene was discovering a new sort of groove – taking all the electro soul influences that had been bubbling over during the past few years, and forging them into the kind of catchy cuts that should have taken the world by storm! There's definitely elements here of the bigger SA styles that got global play earlier in the 80s – but most of these tunes are also so catchy and tight, they might well be the sort of synth pop tunes coming out of the London scene! Most vocals are in English, and the production is thankfully spare enough to keep these tracks from sounding too commercial – with titles that include "Mjondolo" and "She's A Witch" by The Bees, "Don't Do It" and "Leribe" by Little Big Man, "Mosquito" and "Nopaka" by Whoosha, "Gambling" and "Ano Tambura" by Pamela Nkuta, and "Sbarara", "Roadblock", "Lalavuka", and "Blackjack" by Mafika.

Federal/Dub Store (Japan), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98
Killer work from a time when the Jamaican music scene was really coming into its own – served up here from the vaults of Federal Records, who were one of the key imprints helping capture the new Kingston sounds of the 60s! Federal already had roots in Jamaican jazz and other styles, which they definitely bring to bear on the recording of these tunes – tracks that are very different than later revival ska, and even some of the late 60s Jamaican hits – and which often have a gritty quality that tie them much more strongly to the earlier styles that led to the music. As the package indicates, all tracks here are rare, and some are unreleased – with titles that include "Blue Ska" by The Cavaliers, "One Ska One Ounce Of Weed One Beer" by Clive Wilson & The Skatalites, "Third Man Theme" by Granville Williams, "What To Do" by Federal Singers, "Come Along With Me" by The Maytals & Don Drummond, "String Of Pearls" by Audley Williams, "I Man" by The Cavaliers, "Coppa" by The Maytals & Don Drummond, "Love Is All I Have" by The Federal Singers, and "Dip Them" by The Cavaliers.

The Ru-Jac label is really on fire here – taking off with some sweet female soul singers, as you might guess from the image on the cover – in modes that mix their deep soul core with some nice jazzy touches too! Two big artists grab the first half of the collection here – Kitty Lane, who might have been right at home working for Stax Records – and Rita Doryse, a jazzier singer who recalls early Marlena Shaw material at Chess! Other artists here continue some of the male deep soul styles that have made Ru-Jac a real favorite for collectors of rare singles – and as with other volumes in this series, the package also includes a number of tracks that were never issued at the time. Titles include "When I'm Alone", "Wait Til Then", "Born To Be Loved", and "Please Let Me Love You" by Rita Doryse; "It's Love I Need", "Sweetheart", and "The Feeling Is Gone" by Kitty Lane; "I Would Cry" and "I Tell You" by Gene & Eddie, "Do The Roller" and "Working Hard" by Leon Gibson, "I Can't Stay Away" and "Who Can It Be" by The Caressors; "She's My Girl (demo)" and "My Love (demo)" by Winfield Parker, and "Sweet Little Girl" and "Finally Together" – both unreleased tracks by an unknown artist!

Baltimore's legendary Ru-Jac Records label at the end of the 60s – coming to terms with some of the bigger changes in soul music, which means that they're adding a bit more funk to the mix! As with all the previous volumes in this excellent series, the scope of sounds and knowledge here is amazing – really detailed notes that not only get at the difficulties and complexities of running a small indie soul label, but which also show the shifting side of the audience for the records, and the way that both the singers and label changed to keep up! Don't let any of the "changes" put you off, though – as the music here is excellent – filled with the deep soul vocals and strong sense of fire you heard on the previous volumes, and featuring some unreleased titles too. Almost all the work here was recorded between 1967 and 1972 – there's only one final single from 1980 – and titles include "She's So Pretty (backing track)" by The Upsetters, "Sugar" by Fred Martin & Revue, "Changes (part 1)" by Saturday, "It's No Sin" by Gene & Eddie, "Every Day" by Sir Joe, "Think Of Me As Your Soldier" by Jimmy Dotson, "I Loved You Once" by Willie Mason, "Days May Come Days May Go" by Utopian Concept, "When I'm Alone" by Fred Martin & Revue, "Keep Off The Grass" by Dynamic Corvettes, "Nothing" by Winfield Parker, "Let Me Go Easy (alt version)" by Gene & Eddie, "Go On Back" by Willie Mason, "It's A Trap" by Dynamic Corvettes, "Contagious" by Fred Martin Revue, "I'll Be Your Lover" by Jimmy Dotson, "Days May Come Days May Go" by Francine Long, and "Tighten Up" by an Unknown Artist.

Blue Note/Jazzman (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99
A great look at a sometimes-forgotten side of the legendary Blue Note Records label – the company's strong wave of spiritual jazz material recorded during the 60s and early 70s – extremely fine music that's often eclipsed next to the company's better-known hardbop and funky jazz! As the 60s moved on, Blue Note became an even more open-minded label than before – and not only gave some of its key players the chance to stretch out and really spread their wings – but also brought some younger talents into the mix, who really expanded the vision of the Blue Note sound. Some of the tracks here are from the middle of the decade – and reflect more of the growing interest in modal jazz spurred on by Coltrane, Miles Davis, and others – while some of the later tracks are surprisingly righteous, sometimes political moments from players who would have sounded very different just a few years before. The package is done with the same amazing care and fantastic set list as previous Spiritual Jazz collections from Jazzman – and titles include "Verse" by Bobby Hutcherson, "Footprints" by Wayne Shorter, "At This Point In Time" by Elvin Jones, "The Rain" by Eddie Gale, "Poinsettia" by Andrew Hill, "Searchin The Trane" by Bobby Hutcherson, "The Phantom" by Duke Pearson, "Assunta" by Freddie Hubbard, "El Barrio" by Joe Henderson, "Plight" by Jackie McLean, "Gichi" by Booker Ervin, "Igbesi Aiye" by Solomon Ilori, "Blue Spirits" by Freddie Hubbard, "Cristo Redentor" by Duke Pearson, "The Morning After" by Hank Mobley, "Indian Song" by Wayne Shorter, and "Malaguena" by Pete LaRoca.

Sugar Hill/Rhino, Late 70s. New Copy 6 x 12 inch singles set (reissue)... $99.99
A hefty tribute to the 12" single at Sugar Hill Records – a label who really helped but that format on the map in the world of hip hop! Sugar Hill were one of the first to really embrace the 12" for the sounds of the South Bronx – and they managed to get theirs out to more parts of the country than other New York labels – which helped the company really rule the charts for the first few years of the old school! This package features 6LPs, each with very long mixes from the original 12" single release of the tunes – tracks that include "White Lines" by Grandmaster & Melle Mel, "Rappers Delight" by Sugarhill Gang, "Adventures Of Grandmaster Flash On The Wheels Of Steel" by Grandmaster Flash, "Break Dance Electric Boogie" by West Street Mob, "That's The Joint" by Funky 4 + 1, "Beat Street" by Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five, "It's Nasty" by Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five, "Monster Jam" by Spoonie Gee & The Sequence, "Message II" by Melle Mel & Duke Bootee, "Step Off" by The Furious Five, "Funk You Up" by The Sequence, "We Got The Funk" by Positive Force, "The Message" by Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five, and "Apache" by Sugarhill Gang.

Summer/Light In The Attic, Mid 70s/1980s. New Copy ... $4.99
Another blistering treasure trove of Canadian reggae! You heard us right, this batch of deep and heavy roots comes all the way from Toronto, and though it may be geographically isolated from the Caribbean, the vibes are deeply rooted foundation rock, not unlike some of the other astoundingly great material the folks at Light In The Attic have reissued. Jerry Brown's Summer Records imprint churned out no small number of tremendous reggae cuts, as this excellent compilation documents, working with West Indian ex-pats, visiting luminaries and local talent, too! The tracks run the gamut from bright and crisp to murky smoked out but it's all unbelievably great and will open your eyes to a whole new scene in the same way that the refreshing Jamaica Toronto set did! 15 tracks in all, including "Love Makes The World Go Round", "Warrior" and "Jah Jah Live Forever" by Johnny Osbourne, "Sufferer" and "Awakening" by Earth, Roots & Water, "Run Them A Run" by Willi Williams, "Reach My Destiny" by Noel Ellis, "Dreadlock Lady" by Jerry Brown, "Come Together" by Bobby Gaynair and Earth, Roots & Water, and "Mankind" by Adrian Homer Miller and Earth, Roots & Water. Plus as a bonus, there's a DVD layer on the CD, with 20 minutes of excellent archival footage of Jerry Brown and his artists in the studio and at the dance! CD

Warner/Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $13.99 22.99
A totally great entry in this always-great series – and one that looks at a slice of raunchy rock that's a bit different than usual! The Warner Brothers label started up right at the end of the 50s – after most of the other rock powerhouse imprints – and they also had more of an ear for pop and mainstream sounds, given their Hollywood home. Yet they also quickly found a way to turn out some really remarkable 45s – music that was maybe even just recorded with leftover studio time, or between the bigger projects on the label – funded by bigger money from films, and often done in a top-shelf studio setting! This legacy of Warner isn't nearly as well-known as their 60s pop and vocal material, but it's equally groovy – if not more so – and gets fantastic treatment here from Bear Family, who not only present a whopping 30 tracks, but also accompany the whole thing with a wonderful booklet that's filled with notes, photos, and record images. The set even includes some surprising rockers by unlikely sources – and titles include "Shimmy Shake" by Billy Land, "The Swing" by Johnny Carroll, "Teen Beat" by Don Ralke, "Road Hog" by Johnny Zorro, "Hanna Lee" by Shelly Dane, "The Fool" by Bob Luman, "Lucille" by The Everly Brothers, "Baby Please Don't Go" by Troyce Key with Eddie Cochran, "Drum Twist" by Buddy Harman, "Saturday Night Fish Fry" by Eddie & Betty, and "Forbidden City" by John Buck & His Blazers.

RCA/Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $15.99 25.99
Lots of older record companies got in on the action during the early days of rock and roll – but few folks did it as well as RCA Records – home, of course, to Elvis Presley – and also to all the great lesser-known gems featured in this set! Some tracks are by artists who would break big on later labels, or others who might have stepped over a bit from country – but the bulk of the collection represents all the great singles that RCA cut during the late 50s and early 60s – including some on its sub-labels, where the company was going strong in the worlds of underground styles! Given that this excellent series already looked at RCA once before, it's a further testament that there's an additional 35 rocking gems to be pulled from the label's catalog – as you'll hear on cuts that include "Wild Child" by David Hill, "Get On The Right Track" by Joe Clay, "Rainbow Doll" by Jimmy Dell, "Welcome To The Club" by Jean Chapel, "Wolf Boy" by Sammy Salvo, "Hoebe Snow" by Benny Martin, "Never Been Kissed" by Marlin Greene, "Chicken House" by Dave Rich, "Heart Of A Fool" by Lee Denson, "Almost Eighteen" by Roy Orbison, "That Weepin Willow Tree" by Ray Griff, and "Dumb Bunny" by Bill Carlis.

Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $15.99 22.99
Wild work from one of the most obscure labels featured in this series so far – the tiny Colonial Records imprint from Chapel Hill, NC – the company who first pressed comedy records by a young Andy Griffith, but also did some great rockabilly as well! The Colonial style is nicely different from better-known companies in Memphis and Louisiana – and the tunes often seem to have an equal balance country bop and early rock – maybe a few steps behind some of the other scenes at the time, but in a way that really gives their singles a heck of a lot of charm! The songs are incredibly well-produced almost feeling like offbeat songs from the Columbia studios at times, but maybe with a bit more bite – and given that Colonial cuts have hardly been reissued over the years, there's a huge amount here to discover. CD features 34 tracks in all, with very detailed notes – and titles include "Somebody Sweet" and "Sittin In The Balcony" by Johnny Dee, "Wake Up" and "So Real" by The Franklin Brothers, "If You Don't Know" and "I've Got A Secret" by George Hamilton IV, "Runaway Lover" by Grady Lewis, "Birddoggin" by Bill Craddock & The Blue Notes, "Mountain Dew Rock" by Hoke Simpson, "Little Blue Eyes" and "Ugh Ugh Ugh" by EC Beatty, "The Battle" by Joe Tanner, "The Oriental Shake" by The Goldtones, and "That's All I've Got" by Ebe Sneezer & The Epidemics.

Get these records out of the trash and on to your turntable – because they're way too good to throw away! In fact, they're so good they're great – the kind of sweet little platters that were so ahead of their time, they were probably never appreciated back in the day – and which often have a kind of genre-hopping, category-stomping quality that makes them ripe for rediscovery all these many years later!

Black Saint/BBE (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3LP Gatefold ... $24.99 28.99
A tremendous look at one of the coolest jazz labels of all time – and one that has an especially strong focus on the more spiritual side of its music! The paired Black Saint and Soul Note labels came along from the Italian scene right at a time when so many other American companies were shutting their doors – former spiritual jazz powerhouses like Strata East, Impulse, and Black Jazz were moving beyond the music, or disappearing entirely – which made the role of Black Saint/Soul Note such a crucial one! The company came into the game at a time of boundless creativity in American jazz – and really captured a post-Coltrane generation that was brimming over with fire and new ideas, but just needed a place to find expression – which it did at the label, who recorded dozens of albums in the space of less than a decade, nearly all of which have gone onto become classics over the years. And while there's a side of the label that's much more free jazz and avant garde, the cuts here reflect a Black Saint/Soul Note that's just slightly inside – tunes that are still freewheeling, but also have a rhythmic core – and the kinds of open, soaring solos that were first inspired in the 60s generation of Coltrane and Shepp. The choice of cuts is great – similar to the others in the If Music series – and titles include "Mr Seven" by M'Booom, "Joycie Girl" by Don Pullen with Sam Rivers, "Il Giro Del Giorno In 80 Mondi" by Enrico Rava, "Oasis" by Hamiet Bluiett, "Confessin" by John Stubblefield, "Joobubie" by George Adams & Dannie Richmond, "Verde Que Eu Te Quero Ver" by Rava String Band, "Down Home In New York" by Archie Shepp, "BK" by Air, and "The Nagual Julian" by Billy Bang Sextet.

Warner/Groove Line Records (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Ashford & Simpson may have gotten their start at Motown, but they really found their groove at Warner Brothers – as you'll hear on this massive collection of tracks from their landmark late 70s years at the label! Even many decades later, the strength of this music is undeniable – a careful blend of soulful roots and upbeat rhythms – yet all in ways that never fall into standard disco cliches of the period! The Ashford & Simpson groove is a really unique one – always deeply soulful, even when well polished, and carefully put together with some of the best studio elements the pair could get their hands on – then produced to perfection with a sparkling sound that's years ahead of its time. This 3CD set is the best we've ever seen to look at their years with Warner – as it features a total of 47 long tracks in all – including some rare singles and unusual mixes too! Titles include "I'd Know You Anywhere", "Bend Me", "Gimme Something Real", "Somebody Told A Lie", "Send It", "So So Satisfied (single version)", "Top Of The Stairs", "Bourgie Bourgie (inst)", "Main Line", "Everybody's Got To Give It Up", "Sell The House", "It'll Come It'll Come It'll Come", "Ain't Nothin But A Maybe", "It Seems To Hang On", "Is It Still Good To Ya", "Ain't It A Shame (long version)", "The Debt Is Settled (unreleased long version)", "Nobody Knows", "Found A Cure", "Crazy", "Happy Endings (single)", "Live Medley", "It's The Long Run (single version)", "I Ain't Asking For Your Love", "Get Up & Do Something", "Found A Cure (Tom Moulton mix)", "Love Don't Make It Right (John Morales M+M disco mix)", "Stay Free (groove line disco mix)", "Don't Cost You Nothing (12" disco)", "It Seems To Hang On (12" disco)", "Bourgie Bourgie (Joe Claussell's classic mix)", "Over & Over (12" disco mix)", "Tried Tested & Found True (12" disco)", "Flashback (12" disco)", "One More Try (12" disco)", and "Tried Tested & Found True (Mike Maurro's inst reprise)".

A soul music treasure trove – the complete Chi-Lites recordings for Brunswick, presented in order, with album tracks and bonus singles too!

Brunswick had a strange habit of repeating tracks from album to album – so although the 2CD package features 41 tracks, it actually includes the contents of 5 and a half albums – Give It Away, I Like Your Lovin, Give More Power To The People, A Lonely Man, and A Letter To Myself (part 1) – plus additional bonus material too!

A fantastic collection of postwar gospel recordings from the legendary Nashboro Records – one of the most important imprints for the music back in the 50s and 60s! We rank the work of Nashboro right up with the famous Houston-bred productions of Peacock Records – and as Peacock was part of the secular soul label Duke, Nashboro was also part of the blues powerhouse Excello – which means that the cuts here are put together at a level that's maybe got as much understanding of the needs of the record racks and jukebox scene, as they are aimed at the higher ideals of the lyrics! Nashboro excelled especially in the sorts of small vocal groups that can make gospel singles from this time every bit as much a slice of harmony heavy as rare doo wop tracks – and titles here include "Seven Angels" by The Trumpeteers, "Just One Step" by Little Johnny Jones & The Little Jones Singers, "I Received My Blessing" by Radio Four, "Touch Me Lord Jesus" by Angelic Gospel Singers, "Give Me My Flowers" by The Consolers, "I Would Not Be A Sinner" by Dixie Nightingales, "Jesus Keeps Me Alive" by The Skylarks, "Sit Down Servant" by Swanee Quintet, "When Jesus Stays Home" by Southern Echoes Singers, and "Rest From My Labor" by Supreme Angels. 16 cuts in all – and very nicely done!

A lost legacy in clubby soul – a huge amount of work from singer/producer Lee Moore – a post-Stax talent on the Memphis scene, and an artist who also made a bit of a mark on the New York scene! The "boogie" in the title is a very good indication of the groove going on here – as many tracks are in a post-disco mode that's solidly funky club from the pre-house years – lots of basslines, and sometimes a bit of keyboards and more electronic touches, depending on the setting! The range of work here is really wonderful – as the set begins with a disc of all the singles that Moore recorded during the time – then goes on to feature three rare albums on discs 2 & 3 each showing a different side of Lee's talents! One of the sets is from his unusual Le'Gamby group – an electro soul outfit with a very strong New York streetbeat vibe – and another album features Lee's late gospel group Divinity – one of those underground combos who still worked with plenty of secular soul in the mix! There's also a reissue of Lee's rare album Free & Easy – originally issued by the Score label in Memphis, as was much of this material – and the whole thing comes together with a detailed set of notes on the man and his music. Titles include "Get Off (part 1)", "Do You Feel Like A Party (12" mix)", "Reachin Out For Your Love (12" mix)", "Let's Do It", "Secret Lover", "The Coast Is Clear, "Blue Skies", "One Lover To Another", and "Jammin On A Gram Of Love" by Lee Moore; "Double OO Too Sweet", "Whippin", "Sweet Baby", and "Asmeralda" by Le'Gamby; "Ten Toes Up Ten Down", "What Do You Do For Love", "You Can Bet I'll Get You Yet", and "What's In The Dark" by Subway featuring Wave, "The First Family" and "Slow Motion" by The First Family; "Watch Over Me", "Stay", "He's Coming", and "Come To Me" by Divinity; and "Changing Times" by Alien.

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. Deluxe edition comes with deluxe gatefold packaging and a bonus 7-inch with exclusive, previously unreleased mystery tracks. LP, Vinyl record album
(Deluxe edition includes a 40 page book and comes in a gatefold sleeve featuring a bonus 7 inch single with unlisted, previously unreleased mystery tracks!)

✨✧ VariousLight Mellow Solar Records – Sound Of Los Angeles Records ... CD
Solar/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The sound's not entirely mellow – as LA's Solar Records was a label that was pretty dedicated to a groove – but the set does mix in some of the label's great midtempo cuts alongside its better-remembered groovers – all in a great summation of the sound and style that made the company a real powerhouse of west coast soul! The collection covers a good range of the label's strongest acts, and there's some nice surprises along the way, not just the Solar hits – as tracks include "Shine The Light" by Collage, "A Song For Donny" by The Whispers, "Call Me" by Bill Wolfer, "Charlie" by Carrie Lucas, "Two Occasions" by the Deele, "Computer Love" by Cat Miller, "Groovin" by Collage, "I Want To Love You Tonight" by Klymaxx, "Personality" by Dynasty, "Floating With The Tide" by Ralph Butler, "Come Back Lover Come Back" by The Sylvers, "Slow Jam" by Midnight Star, and "I Want To Hold Your Hand" by Lakeside.

✨✧ VariousPieces Of Trio Records – Mixed By Hiroko Otsuka ... CD
Trio (Japan), 1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic trip through the catalog of Trio Records – one of the coolest Japanese jazz labels of the 70s – and a company who not only gave growing local talent the chance to really spread their wings, but who also cut some great rare sessions by American artists too! The set here is heavy on work from the Japanese scene, and although the title says "mixed", the selection here isn't really all that funky – and instead presents Trio in all their glory – in a very hip combination of modal jazz, electric numbers, soulful moments, and even a few avant tracks – all balanced out beautifully with a great sense of pacing throughout. Titles include "Micro Worlds" by Kako TAkashi, "Young Girls Jumpin Dance" by Yoshinori Kondo, "Too High" by Sharps & Flats, "Mother Some Place" by Hiroshi Fukumura, "Malachi's Tune" by Yoshaburo Toyosumi, "Kappa Poetry" by Toshiyuki Miyama & New Heard, "Love Supreme (part 1)" by Elvin Jones Jazz Machine, "Methuselah" by Richie Beirach, "Turned Around" by Jack DeJohnette, "Sea Weeds" by Masaru Imada, and "White Fire" by Takao Uematsu.

✨✧ VariousRare & Unreleased Ska Recordings From Federal Records Vaults 1964/1965 ... LP
Federal/Dub Store (Japan), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Killer work from a time when the Jamaican music scene was really coming into its own – served up here from the vaults of Federal Records, who were one of the key imprints helping capture the new Kingston sounds of the 60s! Federal already had roots in Jamaican jazz and other styles, which they definitely bring to bear on the recording of these tunes – tracks that are very different than later revival ska, and even some of the late 60s Jamaican hits – and which often have a gritty quality that tie them much more strongly to the earlier styles that led to the music. As the package indicates, all tracks here are rare, and some are unreleased – with titles that include "Blue Ska" by The Cavaliers, "One Ska One Ounce Of Weed One Beer" by Clive Wilson & The Skatalites, "Third Man Theme" by Granville Williams, "What To Do" by Federal Singers, "Come Along With Me" by The Maytals & Don Drummond, "String Of Pearls" by Audley Williams, "I Man" by The Cavaliers, "Coppa" by The Maytals & Don Drummond, "Love Is All I Have" by The Federal Singers, and "Dip Them" by The Cavaliers.

✨✧ VariousSpiritual Jazz 9 – Blue Notes – Part 1 – Modal, Esoteric & Deep Jazz From The Vaults Of Blue Note Records 1962 to 1976 ... LP
Jazzman (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A great look at a sometimes-forgotten side of the legendary Blue Note Records label – the company's strong wave of spiritual jazz material recorded during the 60s and early 70s – extremely fine music that's often eclipsed next to the company's better-known hardbop and funky jazz! As the 60s moved on, Blue Note became an even more open-minded label than before – and not only gave some of its key players the chance to stretch out and really spread their wings – but also brought some younger talents into the mix, who really expanded the vision of the Blue Note sound. Some of the tracks here are from the middle of the decade – and reflect more of the growing interest in modal jazz spurred on by Coltrane, Miles Davis, and others – while some of the later tracks are surprisingly righteous, sometimes political moments from players who would have sounded very different just a few years before. The package is done with the same amazing care and fantastic set list as previous Spiritual Jazz collections from Jazzman – and titles on this first volume include "Verse" by Bobby Hutcherson, "Footprints" by Wayne Shorter, "At This Point In Time" by Elvin Jones, "The Rain" by Eddie Gale, "Poinsettia" by Andrew Hill, "Searchin The Trane" by Bobby Hutcherson, "The Phantom" by Duke Pearson, and "Assunta" by Freddie Hubbard.

✨✧ VariousThat'll Flat Git It! Volume 32 – Rockabilly & Rock N Roll From The Vaults Of Decca, Brunswick, & Coral Records ... CD
Decca/Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic collection of rockers from the Decca/Coral family of labels – companies that gave the world key recordings by Buddy Holly and the Johnny Burnette Trio – and who also had a huge commitment to other lesser-known acts as well! This overstuffed package is a great illustration of the wealth of material that Decca, Coral, and Brunswick recorded back in the late 50s and early 60s – a time when they seemed to have a very open door policy with both rockabilly and hillbilly artists – who they often recorded with the raw power that you might normally find with a smaller indie label. If you know the classic sound of "Train Kept A Rollin" by Johnny Burnette, you'll know what these guys are capable of – and even though that track's not here, there's plenty more great numbers – including "Big Town" by Ronnie Self, "Crazy Dream" by Terry Noland, "Broke Down Baby" by The Tyrones, "Rock Of Gibraltar" by Hank Penny, "Man Hunt" by Dodie Randle, "Where'd You Stay Last Night" by Joe Hudgins, "Gonna Have Myself A Ball" by Lance Roberts, "Honky Tonk Freeze" by Sandy Coker, "The Raven" by Jackie Brooks, "Midnight Monster Hop" by Jack & Jim, "Blue STreet" by Arnie Derksen, and "Tarzan" by Glenn Reeves. 33 tracks in all!

✨✧ Brett Ermilio & Josh LevineGoing Platinum – Kiss, Donna Summer, & How Neil Bogart Built Casablanca Records (hardcover) ... Book
Lyons, 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The saucy story of one of the wildest figures in the music industry during the 70s – the legendary Neil Bogart and his Casablanca Records – home to both Kiss and Donna Summer, and a whole host of questionable practices as well! Bogart passed away just about the time that disco faded from the mainstream – but during a relatively short span of time, he managed to find new ways to make musical superstars almost overnight – and give a great push to others who really deserved the exposure – all while churning out record after record, with a speed that makes most of today's record labels look as if they're dormant! The book's penned by one of Bogart's family members – who may perhaps turn a bit of a softer eye to some of his deeds – but the author also had plenty of access to private papers and other information, which makes for plenty of illuminating reading throughout. 211 pages, hardcover.

✨✧ Rick KennedyJelly Roll, Bix, & Hoagy – Gennett Records & The Rise Of America's Musical Grassroots ... Book
Indiana University Press, 2013. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great look at the legendary Gennett Records – an important early force in the world of 78rpm recordings – and home to a great number of early jazz recordings too! Gennett was the offshoot of an Indiana piano factory – and like Paramount, a similarly far-flung company initially tied to another industry, Gennett had a surprising reach that captured some of the coolest sounds of the bigger cities – with a recording roster that included Louis Armstrong, King Oliver, Bix Beiderbecke, Hoagy Carmichael, Duke Ellington, Charley Patton, and many others – a huge legacy that set the tone for so many other labels to come. The author tells the story of Gennett with a strong attention to detail – but he also still makes the tale come alive, in the way that he recounts the company's strange role as a crossroads for musicians from much farther away. 276 pages, softcover, with some black and white images.
