Release Date: 4/17/2020

(3-CD) Stefan Grossman's Guitar Workshop presents a definitive portrait of the hugely influential folk blues icon Rev. Gary Davis in a comprehensive three-CD set titled Demons & Angel. Compiled by disciple and historian Stefan Grossman (who calls Davis "the Stravinsky of the acoustic guitar"), this sprawling set showcases the full stylistic range of Davis' music, encompassing blues, gospel, ragtime, minstrel songs and other bits of Americana. The recordings were culled from over 100 hours of studio, concert and home recordings... Rev. Gary's eccentric genius shines brightly on this substantial collection. - Bill Milkowski/Jazz Times The definitive collection from one of the true giants in early blues and gospel, Reverend Gary Davis, a man positively worshipped by latter-day folkies and rockers (Dave Van Ronk, for one, called him "the most fantastic guitarist I'd ever seen"). This 3-CD set contains 57 tracks - many unreleased - highlighted by such spine-tinglers as Baby, What You Going to Do; I Am the Vine; Mean Old World; Devil's Dream; You're Going to Quit Me Baby; Keep Your Lamp Trimmed and Burning, and more. A PDF booklet on Disc 1, includes all the song lyrics plus a bio of Rev. Davis by Ian Zack.

Title:
Journey To The One
Release Date: 4/17/2020
Format: LP
List Price: (B64) $64.98 

(2-LP set) Sanders music on this LP fluctuates between the tranquil sounds of his mellow horn to the outer limits where he left off with the explorations of Trane's late period. What separates this LP from others is that it is a group playing under his leadership where he gives all others close to equal billing. The uptempo, "You've Got To Have freedom" is one such song where Sanders gets out there on some of his solos but works within the group structure as the other musicians, most notably Eddie Henderson on flugelhorn, bring the music back home. There is a chorus sung much of the time throughout where the the proclamation "Ya gotta have peace and love, ya gotta have freedom" is presented in Manhattan Transfer style but with much more soul. The use of vocalists is done again on the track entitled "Think About The One." The chorus features vocalese specialist Bobby McFerrin. This LP shows the different sides of Pharoah Sanders, a man always willing to explore the music, explore his soul and share it with you. The closing track "Bedria" is a mellow exploration of the various ranges of the tenor. It is a ten minute song that displays all the grace of his being, a gentle giant who can manipulate the horn to do extraordinary things, reverberating out and back in undulating waves of harmonic bliss. Sanders on this LP is next to perfect. One of his best recording from his post Impulse career. It belongs in your jazz collection right next to John Coltrane.

Title:
Expansions
Release Date: 4/10/2020
Format: LP
List Price: (B33) $33.98 

(5% DISCOUNT THRU 3-27-20) Lonnie's 1975 jazz-funk masterpiece is released on 180g black vinyl in a nice thick card gatefold sleeve. Former Miles Davis and Pharoah Sanders keyboardist Lonnie Liston Smith saw all his musical ideas coming together for this, his third album. The title track is one of the best-known jazz funk classics; its influence on several generations of clubbers cannot be underestimated. It is a glorious amalgamation of jazz players and the tenor voice of Lonnie's brother Donald. However, the track's success has resulted in the album becoming rather overlooked and its other six pieces underappreciated. 'Desert Nights' and 'Voodoo Woman' give vent to Lonnie's improvisational skills over a modal base. 'Summer Days' and 'My Love' are based around Latin rhythms, with the latter proving another great vehicle for Donald Smith's voice. Donald is also the singer on an inspired take on Horace Silver's 'Peace'. "One of dance music's most significant records" - Gilles Peterson.

Title:
Boom
Release Date: 4/10/2020
Format: LP
List Price: (B33) $33.98 

(5% DISCOUNT THRU 3-27-20) We follow up January's release of "Here Are The Sonics!" with a 180g black vinyl replica release of "Boom" - the Sonics' second album, originally released in 1966 on Etiquette Records in wonderful mono. "Boom" still does much more than merely deliver on the promise of the first album, "Here Are The Sonics!". Few records have ever packed as much of a musical punch from start to finish. Even more so than their first LP, it offers a representation of what the Sonics must have sounded like at the peak of their considerable powers. Recorded in the most glorious no-fi you could ever wish for and with anthemic originals like 'Cinderella' and 'He's Waiting' vying for your attention with what is possibly the most violent version of 'Louie Louie' that there will ever be, "Boom" is an album that has always justified the esteem in which it is held by collectors around the globe. All the modern bumph like barcodes and whatnot is on a disposable sticker, leaving your copy of "Boom" as original as possible.

Title:
Soul Voices - 60s Big Ballads
Release Date: 4/10/2020
Format: CD
List Price: (B16) $16.98 

(5% DISCOUNT THRU 3-27-20) Male soul balladeers from the 60s are particularly admired and we have many A-listers here: Roy Hamilton, Walter Jackson, Lou Johnson, Kenny Carter and Jimmy Radcliffe to name a few. The majestic sound grew out of the first soul records which were made in New York in the 60s - three quarters of the featured tracks were recorded there - and have a timeless quality, but one which is virtually impossible to replicate nowadays. Four are previously unissued vintage recordings. The Kenny Carter is outrageously good and is a Larry Banks song. Clarence Pinckney is largely unknown but performs well on a great Billy Terrell song, while recognised, high-quality soul vocalists Junior Lewis and Billy Watkins add substantially to the oeuvre. Rare releases by Brooks O'Dell, Herb Johnson and Al Hibbler complement known but expensive collector's discs from Clyde McPhatter, Garrett Saunders, Jimmy Beaumont and Roy Hamilton. Overlooked CD-only old recordings have the spotlight shone on them, Walter Jackson's 'Forget The Girl' and Tommy Hunt's terrific male take on 'Don't Make Me Over' being particularly noteworthy. Throw in great tracks by Freddie Scott, Tony Mason, Garnet Mimms, Ben E King and more and it really is a must-buy soul CD. Compilation and notes by Ady Croasdell.

Don't Blow Your Cool! More 60s Girls From Uk Decca
Release Date: 4/10/2020
Format: CD
List Price: (B20) $20.98 

(5% DISCOUNT THRU 3-27-20) With our vinyl compilation "Girl Zone" in 1986, Ace Records became the first reissue company to plunder Decca Records' 1960s female catalogue. No-one really knew whether there was a demand, so it was something of a gamble. Happily, reaction was positive and the album sold well. Fast forward 30 years, and our similarly themed "Love Hit Me!" collection became one of our top-selling releases of 2016. Having established that there's still a demand, we now present "Don't Blow Your Cool!", our latest sumptuously packaged all-female Decca anthology. Along with a hand-picked selection of proven fan favourites, with the more avid of collectors in mind, the compilation includes ultra-rare French language versions of 'Summer Nights' by Marianne Faithfull and 'You Just Gotta Know My Mind' by Dana Gillespie, plus other new-to-CD tracks by visiting American Joy Marshall, folk-rocker Beverley, Marvettes lead singer Margo, much-loved girl group the Orchids and, with her 'Goldfinger'-style theme from cult favourite TV series Adam Adamant Lives, lip-gloss queen Kathy Kirby. Compilation and notes by girl-pop buffs Mick Patrick and Ian Chapman (just like back in 1986).

Boppin' By The Bayou - Feel So Good
Release Date: 4/10/2020
Format: CD
List Price: (B16) $16.98 

(5% DISCOUNT THRU 3-27-20) This is compiler Ian Saddler's 22nd visit to the bayous, and the eighth in the "Boppin'" series. We revisit the record empires of Eddie, Shuler, J.D. Miller, Mira Smith and Floyd Soileau, with the addition of Floyd Badeaux's Spindletop label and two tracks from King subsidiary Dixie. 12 tracks are previously unreleased.
