VariousCrazy Rhythms Of Mata Hari – Rolling Rockabilly, Hot & Cool Hillbilly, Wild Western Swing, Sleazy Listening, Sinuous Soul, & Slinky R&B ... LP
Stag O Lee (Germany), 1950s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $22.99
A much more American-styled set of tracks than you'd guess from a record with Mata Hari in the title – mostly work from the hillbilly and R&B sides of the spectrum – pulled from a range of rare singles from the 50s! The vibe is a nice twist on some of the other compilations on the Stag O Lee label – and like the best of those, the mix here features very obscure numbers alongside tracks that might have been big in their day, but have really been lost to the shifting sands of time – nicely revived here for a new generation. The set's got an especially great way of being color-blind to divisions between genres that some folks might insist on – and in a way, maybe more reflects the on-the-ground listening patterns that happened back in the day. Titles include "Doggonit" by Jimmy Spellman, "Thanks Mr Postman" by Bobby King, "Honey Child" by Johnny Williams, "Cat Music" by Dave Bartholomew, "Rock A Billy Gal" by Hayden Thompson, "Black Cat" by Tommy Collins, "Snake Eyed Mama" by Al Casey, "Rocket 88" by Bill Haley & His Saddlemen, "Ghost Train" by The Swanks, "Rattlesnake Baby Rattlesnake" by Joe Johnson, "The Sneak" by Jimmy Oliver, "Snake Charmer" by Mad Man Jones, "Cajun Queen" by Red Sovine, "Lonesome Shack" by Ernie Washington, and "Fever" by Jim Tyler.

VariousRare Breed R&B – The Lost Years ... LP
Outta Sight (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $18.99
A definite rare breed of R&B – tunes that are mostly from the earliest years of soul music – a time when things were still pretty rough around the edges, and artists really knew how to groove! There's lots of work here that matches the raw power of more famous tracks from labels like King, Fire, or Sue Records at the time – but most of the cuts here are nicely obscure, which really makes the collection a great one for fans of raw soul! Titles include "Medicine Man" by Jeanette B Washington, "Baby Please Don't Go" by Rose Mitchell, "Slick Chick" by Vernon Harrell, "Every Whicha Kinda Way" by Earl Connelly King, "Humdinger" by Little Marie Allen, "Looking For My Baby" by The Nightriders, "Keep A Calling" by Paul Perryman", "Lula" by Mike Robinson, "Freedom Riders" by Harold Jackson & The Jackson Brothers, "Mr Astronaut" by The Drivers, and "I Need A Man" by Gloria Irving.

VariousPopcorn Soul Party – Blended Soul & R&B 1958 to 1962 ... LP
Outta Sight (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $18.99
Cool snapping grooves with plenty of soul – that special kind of sound that's come to be known as "popcorn" soul by collectors over the years – and which is often a great bridge between 50s R&B and the later sounds of the 60s! If you know the tune "Fever", you'll know the pace at which many of these tunes move – a midtempo vamp that's mighty darn hip – and which often has a sinister sound that sounds especially great way into the wee hours of the morning! This isn't storming Northern Soul, but instead something a lot more slinky – served up here on 16 tracks that include "Feelin Kinda Lonesome" by Willie J Charles, "Dance By Yourself" by Justin Jones, "Lucky Is My Name" by Bruce Cloude, "Big Boy" by Ki Ki Page, "The Hammer Keeps A Knockin" by Faye Adams, "Up In Smoke" by Johnny Appalachian, "My Guardian Angel" by Jimmy Breedlove, "Love You The Best" by Ernie K Doe, and "Betty Mae" by Roger Green.

VariousInstrumental Explosion – Incendiary Funk & R&B Instrumentals 1966-1973 ... LP
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $16.99 22.99
Funky funky funky – way more so than you might think from the hokey title! The set's overflowing with rare instrumentals pulled from the indie label and funky 45 underground of the late 60s and early 70s – very much in the spirit of the Super Funk compilations on BGP, but almost harder-hitting, as the groove's completely without vocals overall – and the range of material is even more obscure than some of the usual BGP/Ace bits! The combos on the set range from rocking R&B combos to early funky jazz outfits – and the recording quality on most of these tracks is nice and rough and ready – with just the right edge to send over these cuts even more! Titles include "More Soul" by Ron Buford, "Ninety Eight Cents Plus Tax" by Detroit City Limits, "Chocolate Cherry" by Joe Tex Band, "Humpin" by Frank Armstrong & The Stingers, "Stokin" by Leon Ferguson & The Groove Tones, "Thing" by Lowell Fulsom, "Sundance (part 1)" by Lorenzo Holden, "Put Your Weight On It (part 1)" by Fillmore Street Soul Rebellion, "Roly Poly Mickey Lolich" by The Fans, and "Bad On Bad" by Chet Ivey & His Fabulous Avengers.

Stag O Lee (Germany), 1930s/1940s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Not the kind of record you might expect – neither a porno session, or a collection of work by artists named Richard – and instead, a sweet stack of rare tracks originally issued on 78rpm shellac – working together here in jiving jazzy brilliance! The work here is from the swing generation and beyond – with a strong focus on the sorts of sounds that would set the tone for the jump jive and R&B generation – including some especially nice vocal tracks! Titles on this second volume include "Ball Of Fire" by Gene Krupa, "Bunch Of Rhythm" by Horace Henderson, "Root Hog Or Die" by The Harlem Hamfats, "Rip Up The Joint" by Sidney Bechet, "Jive" by Cab Calloway, "All The Cats Join In" by Roy Eldridge, "Raid The Joint" by Erskine Hawkins, "Harlem Rhumbain" by Hot Lips Page, and "Who Said Shorty Wasn't Coming Back" by Lucky Millinder.

✨✧ Kazimierz JonkiszTiri Taka ... LP
Polskie Nagrania (Poland), 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
Soulful fusion from Poland – a group led by drummer Kazimierz Jonkisz, and featuring piano, soprano sax, bass, and a bit of electric violin! The groove is a bit in the Michal Urbaniak mode – although not as way out, with a good focus on ensemble modes on the heads of each tune – similar to American soulful fusion of the time – before the band then makes their way through some longer solo moments. The feel is often surprisingly rich and full – a bit like some of the best R&B-tinged fusion coming out of the US in the mid to late 70s – especially on the Columbia label – and the players here are all top-shelf, and really open up as the tunes roll on. There's none of the too-jamming modes that can sometimes show up in more rock-based fusion records from the Eastern scene – and instead, there's a sensitivity here that shows up even on the more upbeat numbers. Titles include "We're All Waiting", "Tiritaka", "For Slawosz", "Joewer", and "For Marc". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Willis JacksonPlease Mr Jackson ... LP
Prestige, 1959. Very Good- ... $6.99
Smoking tenor work from the legendary Willis Jackson – and a key record in Jackson's transition from 50s R&B to 60s soul jazz! Willis gets some great help on the session from Jack McDuff on organ and Wild Bill Jennings on guitar – both of whom craft some rootsy grooves that further enforce the strength of Jackson's tenor lead, and which also allow for a bit more improvisation alongside the tight grooves of the set. McDuff's got his organ in that full-on early mode – lots of vibrato to fill up the space – and Jennings' guitar comes across with that wonderfully raspy tone that was a good precursor to the work of George Freeman. Titles include "Cool Grits", "Dinky's Mood", "Please Mr. Jackson", and "633 Knock". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousCoxone's Music 2 – The Sound Of Young Jamaica - More Early Cuts From The Vaults Of Studio One 1959 to 1963 ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. Used 3LP Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
A fantastic overview of sounds from the Jamaican scene in the years before rocksteady and ska really took off – most of them from the hands of groundbreaking producer Clement "Coxone" Dodd – later the driving force behind Studio One! In these early years, Dodd already had very close ties to the local scene – first as a DJ who was bringing in underground R&B sides from the US, to play on his 50s soundsystem – and also as a record store owner, with a very strong ear for new talent! Yet although Dodd's later sounds have been really well documented, these earliest recordings are perhaps even more amazing – as they showcase a really great range of styles, and present a Jamaican musical world in which the new ideas were just getting started, and taking on modes that sometimes feel very American, other times feel as if they're in a very individual space that doesn't even have any ska or blue beat touches. There's even a bit of jazz in the mix at times, which is great – and throughout the collection's 41 titles, there's an undeniable richness of Jamaican talent that would have already been huge, even if the scene didn't explode in later years. Titles include "More Proof" by Clancy Eccles, "Get Drunk" by Owen Gray, "Jerk Pork" by Roland Alphonso & His Alley Cats, "Cuban Blockade" by Don Drummond, "Little Lady" by Theophilus Beckford with Clue J & His City Slickers, "Exodus" by Jazz Jamaica, Don't Do It" by Bunny & Scully, "Six & Seven Books Of Moses" by The Maytals, "Peanut Vendor" by Tommy McCook, "Mighty Man" by Higgs & Wilson, "Creation" by Lascelles Perkins, "Mr Propman" by Jazz Jamaica From The Workshop, "Light Of My Life" by Mellow Larks, and "Grand National" by Down Beat All Stars.

CTI, 1976. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $6.99
Smooth and silky jazz funk from trombonist Urbie Green – a record that's much more in a mainstream R&B fusion mode than his earlier work – yet also arranged by David Matthews in a soulful style that still keeps things pretty real on the best cuts! The group's a good one for the mellow groove of the material – and includes Mike Mainieri on keyboards, Eric Gale on guitar, Jeremy Steig on flute, and Toots Thielemans laying down a bit of harmonica – all kicking back in classic 70s CTI styles. Titles include the nice modal groover "Mertensia", plus "Manteca", "Foxglove Suite", "Another Star", and "Goodbye". LP, Vinyl record album

An unusual double-length album of tracks recorded by this bluesy soul singer in the years after she recorded for Savoy, and cut her big hit "Candy". This LP's got a harder rockin' bluesy feel to it, with the sort of R&B revival sound of the late 60/early 70. Maybelle's still great, though, and really manages to belt out tracks like "Cold, Cold Heart", "Your Turn To Cry", "Winnie Widow Brown", "Big Sweet Daddy", "Long Long Journey", and "Blame It On Your Love".

Prestige, 1974. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
A richly soulful album from tenor giant Rusty Bryant – and a set that mixes his older Prestige Records mode with the larger electric styles of the CTI generation! The group's bigger than on most of Bryant's other records of the time – some larger charts arranged by Horace Ott, who had a lot of background in soul and R&B, and brings all of those elements to work nicely on the grooves. Rusty's still out front soloing nicely – in a manner that recalls Stanley Turrentine on CTI or Hank Crawford on Kudu – and other players include Ott himself on keyboards, Wilbur Baxcomb on bass, George Devens on vibes, David Spinozza on guitar, and Bernard Purdie on drums. Funky cuts include "The Hump Bump" and "Ga Gang Gang Goong" – and other titles include "Draggin The Line", "Red Eye Special", and "Troubles". LP, Vinyl record album

Warner, 1976. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A super huge hit for George – the record that took him from being a funky jazz guitarist into an R&B superstar! The album features George playing and singing over arrangements by Claus Ogerman – some of Ogerman's best of the 70s, ones that mix together his trademark pillow of sound with a slightly funky bounce. The result is incredible – and the album is filled with loads of great songs – including George's excellent version of Bobby Womack's "Breezin", the hit version of "This Masquerade", and the cuts "So This Is Love", "Six To Four", and "Affirmation".

✨✧ Roy AyersEverybody Loves The Sunshine (40th anniversary yellow vinyl pressing) ... LP
Polydor, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
One of Roy Ayers' biggest albums ever – and also one of his deepest, too! The whole thing's an incredible album of mellow jazzy soul – and it shows Roy at the crossroads, perfecting his earlier funk style with a sweet mellow R&B edge, getting a bit slicker, but still staying on the righteous path, and opening up a whole new bag in soul music. There's a wonderful electric vibe running through the record – not just from Roy's vibes, but from the Fender Rhodes and Arp work by Phillip Woo – and the amazing energy of the rest of the group too. Features the landmark title cut – "Everybody Loves The Sunshine", one of those tunes that becomes more and more of a classic each year – plus spiritual numbers like "Third Eye" , "Keep on Walking", and "The Golden Rod". Very righteous, and with a cool dope jazzy groove! LP, Vinyl record album

Henry Stone, Early 60s. Very Good- ... $9.99
Early 60s groovers from Steve Alaimo – some tasty work from the Miami scene! Steve's a surprisingly rich artist on this set – a pop singer, sure, but with a surprising degree of soul in his music too – some grittier undercurrents that echo earlier R&B modes, and which mix in with Alaimo's well-crafted vocals in a beautiful way! In fact, Steve almost reminds us of some of the better color-blind artists who were recording up north – particularly some of the better New York artists who could also tap into the uptown soul scene. Titles include "Sammy Dead", "I Don't Wanna Cry", "Ya Ya", "I Don't Know", "Behold", "Stand By Me", and "Soon You'll Be Gone". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ John TropeaTo Touch You Again ... LP
Marlin, 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sweet 70s fusion from John Tropea – a tightly-crafted album, but one that's never too slick, and which still has plenty of soul! Tropea's that rare breed who actually sounds better with a bit more polish – and he seems to draw magically from the high quality of studio support he gets on the record, inspiring his own guitar work onto strong new levels! There's a sense of focus here that seems to even go beyond John's first 2 albums as a leader – and the whole thing's nicely unified with a laidback groove and an R&B-inspired approach to electric jazz. Titles include "Livin In The Jungle", "In This Time", "Look What They've Done To My Song", "You're My Every Need", and "Yours Next To Mine". LP, Vinyl record album

Stax/Ace (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2 LPs ... $16.99 22.99
The funkiest man? Could well be – and this set will more than support that case! By the time of these recordings, Rufus Thomas was already a legendary figure in the Memphis scene – an aging R&B star that also worked on radio and did a fair bit of promotion for other artists, including daughter Carla. At the end of the 60s, Stax brought him into the studio with the idea of pumping up his sound a bit – adding in some of the newer funky styles, which proved to be a perfect fit for Rufus' rough-hewn style of vocals. Tracks on the set feature a number of classic singles from these years, plus a few unissued numbers – with an all funky track list that includes "Funkiest Man Alive", "Give Me The Green Light", "Itch & Scratch", "Turn Your Damper Down", "Funky Hot Grits", "I'm Getting Better", "Sophisticated Sissy", "Funky Mississippi", "Git On Up & Do It", "The Breakdown (part 1)", "Push & Pull (part 1)", "Do The Double Bump", "Funky Robot (part 1)", "Memphis Train 75", and "Funky Bird".

SOUL, 1966. Very Good ... $2.99
A stone cooker from Jr Walker – the kind of hard-driving soul that made his 60s Motown work a key link between the Detroit sound of the time, and R&B sounds of earlier years! Jr's soulful sax is right up in the mix on most numbers – and the overall sound is nicely freewheeling and almost spontaneous – almost a Motown studio jam at times, with vocals and instruments dancing together in joyous formation! Most tracks are instrumentals, but many also have some sort of vocal chorus – and titles include "Anyway You Wanta", "Pucker Up Buttercup", "Twist Lackawanna", "San Ho Zay", "Money", "Last Call", "Ame Cherie", "Mutiny", and "Road Runner".

A monster – and one of the best jazz funk albums ever on Prestige! Rusty Bryant blows his top off on this one – taking his tenor stylings out of the more staid R&B mode of earlier years, working with some younger heavy funk jazz players to craft a brilliant album of long searing tunes that's forever been one of the must-haves of the early 70s jazz funk scene! Idris Muhammad's on drums, Wilbert Longmire's on guitar, and the organ work is split between Leon Spencer and Bill Mason, both monstrously great talents, with a propensity for open-stopped hard-wailing playing! Titles include "Fire Eater", "The Hooker", "Mister S", and "Free At Last". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Shuggie OtisInspiration Information (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Epic, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99
An insanely wonderful album! Shuggie Otis is the son of Johnny Otis – the LA R&B maestro who was moving heavily into funk at the end of the 60s – and he has this tripped out, super-dope guitar style that he played to strong effect on Johnny's albums of the late 60s and early 70s, and on his first two solo albums, which were kind of bluesy in tone. For this album, though, he shocked the world by moving into a stripped-down mode that pairs his guitar with spare drum machine rhythms, flanged-out deeply soulful vocals, and one of the most laidback conceptions of funk you'll ever hear. The album's a landmark – one of those gems that's unlike anything else you can think of, but which will redefine your concept of what you want in a record for years to come. Every track's a winner – and the whole thing's a perfectly unified batch of tunes that includes instant classics like "Inspiration Information", "Island Letter", "Aht Uh Mi Hed", "XL 30", and "Rainy Day".

Wing, 1988. Very Good ... $4.99
The first LP from Tony Toni Tone – and a landmark in crossover R&B! The set is a great one throughout – tightly produced, but with a sense of charm that seemed to be missing at the time from other groups – especially male groups who got a bit blown off course during the quiet storm years. The youthful trio bring a new sort of energy back to male group soul – a sound that's not yet as heavy on the harmonies as it would be in later years, but which still gets things nicely back to basics. Titles include the huge single "Little Walter" – a true benchmark for the Rahael Saadiq empire – plus the tracks "Baby Doll", "For The Love Of You", "Pain", "Love Struck", "Who's Lovin You", and "Not Gonna Cry For You".

✨✧ Gladys Knight & The PipsNeither One Of Us ... LP
SOUL, 1973. Very Good ... $5.99
A key moment in the career of Gladys Knight & The Pips – and a record that opens the group up to a whole new sound for the 70s! When Gladys Knight started out as a raw R&B-ish singer in the early 60s, nobody would have expected her to have such staying power – and to become one of the 70s best interpreters of mellow ballads. This album's more than proof that Knight had plenty of staying power, and the title hit "Neither One Of Us (Wants To Be The First To Say Goodbye)" went onto become one of the decade's biggest mellow soul tracks. It's backed up here by a number of nice tracks that have a harder soul sound, and which are arranged by some of Motown's best talents of the early 70s. Titles include "It's Gotta Be That Way", "This Child Needs Its Father", "And This Is Love", "Don't It Make You Feel Guilty", and a cover of "Who Is She To You". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jack McDuffHoneydripper ... LP
Prestige, Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the records that put a young Brother Jack McDuff on the map – and a perfect example of the rougher R&B roots that first emerged in his early work on the Hammond! The session's got a much more down-n-dirty feel than some of McDuff's tighter 60s quartet work – and offers a nice bridge between 50s use of the organ in R&B, and the growing soul jazz take on the instrument that McDuff was helping to forge at the time. The group's a real cooker too – with some great work on guitar by a young Grant Green, smoking tenor from Jimmy Forrest, and lyrically dancing drums from the great Ben Dixon. Titles include the great original "Whap!", plus versions of "I Want A Little Girl" and "The Honeydripper" – and an excellent reading of Henry Mancini's "Mr Lucky", virtually worth the price of the record alone! LP, Vinyl record album
(OJC pressing.)
