✨✧ ZoomSaturday, Saturday Night ... CD
Polydor (Japan), 1981. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Early 80s funky soul from Zoom! Saturday, Saturday Night is crafted to be a good natured, party starting set – and it succeeds with charm to spare. It's a mix of uptempo club cuts and mellow modern soul ones with excellent harmonies by the group, and some nice hooks in all the right places! A blend of keys, bass, guitar, drums, trumpet and winds – with some spacier synth touches here and there. Our favorite cuts includes "Bye Bye Baby", a nice mellow stepper, but the album's also got other nice ones – like the soulful "Love Seasons, the uptempo jammer "Saturday, Saturday Night", the old school party rap styled "Move And Groove" and "I Believe In You".

Fat Larry's BandMemories ... CD
Society Hill, 2020. New Copy ... $11.99 14.99
The lineup's changed since the classic 70s years of Fat Larry's Band – but the group has gone on to keep things strong as the decades move on – staying close to the ground and the style of their early material, with just a few slight changes in production and instrumentation! There's definitely a group soul approach here, but Art Austin's warmly raspy vocals are nicely in the lead, too – moving over midtempo grooves from Butch Ingram, with maybe more of a classic soul style of production than some of his other albums on the Society Hill label. Titles include "Zoom", "Cell Phone", "I Can Understand It", "Funked Up The White House", "Memories", and "Slow Drag". CD

✨✧ Yan TreggerCatchy ... CD
BBE (UK), 1978. New Copy ... $9.99 14.99
The cover looks gothic, but the sound is plenty darn groovy – a sweet set of sound library instrumentals from the 70s scene in Paris – most of them served up with an upbeat, clubby sort of vibe! Yan Tregger may not be one of those names that immediately comes to the lips of underground club collectors – but there's plenty of great clubby moments here, with grooves that bubble on tight basslines, swing with sweet keyboards, and often get lots of riffing guitar in the mix! Yet there's also some nicely weird touches too – as you might expect from a record that was cut far from the mainstream, as part of a studio library set – the kind of weird funky elements you might find on some of the more obscure 12" singles from the late 70s underground. Titles include "Carry On", "Gimmicky", "Sunny Wing", "Light Heart (parts 1 & 2)", "Riff On", "Lyric Soul", "Slow Zoom", and "This Time". CD

XLos Angeles ... LP
Slash/Fat Possum, 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 21.99
One of the greatest records to ever come out of the west coast punk scene at the end of the 70s and start of the 80s – incredibly well-penned and well-played – at a level that instantly leaves behind so many of its contemporaries! The themes of the tunes are fantastic – sung by Exene Cervenka and John Doe – as little tales of lust, greed, compromise, and decay – all set to the fantastic drums of DJ Bonebrake and the searing guitar of the great Billy Zoom! The quartet are amazing together – never missing a beat as they rip through classics that include "Your Phone's Off The Hook But You're Not", "Johnny Hit & Run Pauline", "Soul Kitchen", "Nausea", "Los Angeles", and "Sex & Dying In High Society".

✨✧ Captain Beefheart & the Magic BandClear Spot (clear vinyl pressing – with bonus tracks) (2022 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Reprise, 1972. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Maybe not as nuts as some earlier work by Captain Beefheart & The Magic Band – but a pretty damn great record nonetheless – especially when compared to most of what was hitting the record racks in 1972! The Captain's still got all his wild and unbridled elements fully in place – even when the songwriting is a bit more straight – and the group's got lots of raspy acoustic touches on guitar, especially the "steel appendage guitar" played by Zoot Horn Rollo! A few tunes are actually catchy – and have backing vocals from The Blackberries – but in a way that may well be more tongue in cheek than anything else. Titles include "Low Yo Yo Stuff", "Sun Zoom Spark", "Clear Spot", "Her Eyes Are A Blue Million Miles", and "Golden Birdies". Great 2LP version features a full bonus LP of rare material, much of which is previously unreleased – including rough mix instrumentals of "Clear Spot", "Big Eyed Beans From Venus", "Dirty Blue Gene", "Sun Zoom", "Low Yo Yo Stuff", and "Crazy Little Thing" – plus "Little Scratch", "Kiss Where I K'Aint", "Nowadays A Woman's Gotta Hit A Man (early mix)", "Circumstances (alt version 2", and "Dirty Blue Gene (alt version 3)". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousFunk Soul Classics – The Ultimate Soul & Funk Revival ... CD
Ministry Of Sound (UK), 1970s/1980s. Used 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
39 tracks of classic funky soul – in styles that stretch from James Brown funk to 80s groove – and everything else in between! The set's sort of a primer to the best of the classics, and features a ridiculous amount of wonderful tunes that still stand as some of our favorites from the glory days. And sure, some of these are a bit familiar, but only because they're so strong they've had a life of their own in underground circles during the past 25 years. Titles include "I Believe In Miracles" by The Jackson Sisters, "Expansions" by Lonnie Liston Smith, "Jingo" by Candido, "Was That All It Was" by Jean Carn, "Cross The Tracks" by Maceo & The Macks, "Zoom" by Fat Larry's Band, "Check Out The Groove" by Bobby Thurston, "We Got The Funk" by Positive Force, "Can You Handle It" by Sharon Redd, "Love Town" by Booker Newbury III, "Last Night A DJ Saved My Life" by Indeep, "Somebody Else's Guy" by Jocelyn Brown, "Love Come Down" by Evelyn King, "Young Hearts Run Free" by Candi Staton, "Let The Music Play" by Shannon, "Do The Bus Stop" by Fatback Band, "I Know You Got Soul" by Bobby Byrd, and "All This Love That I'm Giving" by Gwen McCrae.

Aretha FranklinWho's Zoomin Who? ... LP
Arista, 1985. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A huge hit for Aretha Franklin – and a record that brought her famous vocals to a whole new generation of listeners! The sound is definitely different than before – a change from both the deep soul of Atlantic years, and the initial classy approach of her time at Arista – and working with lots of help from Narada Michael Walden, Aretha gets an 80s groove that turns out to be a perfect platform for her sound – one that lets her vocals really take off, while still getting plenty of great hooks as well – all in a mode that somehow sounds far less commercial than we remember at the time. Includes the massive hits "Freeway Of Love" and "Who's Zoomin Who" – plus "Ain't Nobody Every Loved You", "Push", "Integrity", "Sisters Are Doin It For Themselves", and "Sweet Bitter Love". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has an unglued seam.)

Louis PrimaCall Of The Wildest/Wildest Show At Tahoe ... CD
Capitol (UK), 1958. Used ... $8.99
Two of Louie Prima's greatest albums ever! Both records are darn hard to find, and they're nicely presented back to back on this 2-in-1 CD! Call Of The Wildest features a cover that has Louie singing to a big moose – and the tracks inside are just as crazy, with loads of stunning swinging numbers, like "When You're Smiling", "Blow Red Blow", "I've Got The World On A String", "The Pump Song", and "Closest To The Bone". Wildest Show At Tahoe is every bit as great – a smoking live show, caught at Lake Tahoe, with Keely Smith and Sam Butera very firmly in tow – and the approach works wonderfully for Prima's lively swinging style. The record's a non-stop party, filled with fantastically swinging medleys, done in Prima's best style. Tracks include the groovy Italianesque "Angelina/Zooma Zooma", the ballad-gone-uptempo "Don't Worry About Me/I'm In The Mood For Love", another other numbers that include "Oh Babe", "Robin Hood", "How High The Moon", and "I Gotta Right To Sing The Blues".

Tom Tom ClubTom Tom Club ... LP
Sire, 1981. Very Good+ ... $24.99
The first album by The Tom Tom Club – a group that started out as a side project by Talking Heads members Tina Weymouth and Chris Frantz – but which went onto have a surprising life of its own! Like the Talking Heads at the start of the 80s, Tom Tom Club were very open to pulling together rhythms from the soulful underground – bits of Caribbean influence and certainly some sounds from hip hop too – but used in these cool sing-songy tunes that also had ties to the same New York underground scene that gave the world ESG and Liquid Liquid! Yet there's also a nicely complex set of textures, too – thanks to work on the record by Adrian Belew and Steve Stanley – both of whom can balance out funky elements and more interesting textures. The record took off immediately with the track "Genius Of Love" – inspired by hip hop, and respected by that scene too – as was the album's classic "Wordy Rappinghood". The whole thing's great – an excellent document of the moment, but more timeless too – and other titles include "L'Elephant", "As Above So Below", "On On On On", "Lorelei", and "Booming & Zooming".

VariousAction Time Vision – A Story Of Independent UK Punk 1976 to 1979 (4CD set) ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 4CD ... $32.99 51.99
A truly incredible collection – even more wonderful than we might have guessed from the title and cover – and both of those are already pretty darn appealing! This package might well be the most comprehensive we've ever seen on the early days of punk in England – a package that goes way past the big names, way past the classic cuts, and really digs deep into the huge explosion of indie labels that fueled the scene – creating a legacy of rare singles and amazing sounds that the British scene hadn't seen in years! If you dig the Sex Pistols or Clash, there's dozens of other tunes here to love – some by artists you'll know from later fame, represented here on very early tracks – and lots more from acts who maybe only gave the world a handful of brilliant singles. The presentation is as stunning as the music – 111 tracks on 4CDs, inside a heavy 64 page book-style jacket – with page after page of notes on each song and band, and lots of images as well. Consider this whole thing an overdue primer on all the punk you missed – even if you lived back in the day – and lose yourself in the huge array of tracks by groups who include The Radiators From Space, Puncture, Some Chicken, The Panik, The Only Ones, Suspects, Tueway Army, The Boys, Acme Sewage Co, Raped, Bazoomis, Menace GLC, Sids, Rudi, Art Attack, Angelic Upstarts, Mean Street, Poison Girls, Chelsea, Demon Preacher, Leyton Brothers, The Dole, Riff Raff, The Tights, Social Security, Nicky & The Dots, No Way, The Wall, Hollywood Brats, Disco Zombies, Spizzoil, Horrorcomic, The Cravats, and lots lots more!
