JAMES BROWN Polydor 47202 In The Jungle Groove ● CD $10.98
This set chronicles the King- Polydor transition period of 1969-71. The tunes here are all previously unissued unedited versions of tunes cut down for LP cuts, or cut down even further for singles, with most tracks here running 6-8 minutes. I Got To Move , has never before been issued and has the intro of the never issued title tune edited on. It's A New Day/ Give It Up Or Turn It A Loose were from King LPs, Funky Drummer/ Get Up, Get Into It, Get Involved/ Soul Power from King singles, are making their 1st album appearances, and Talkin' Loud & Sayin' Nothin'/ Hot Pants are from Polydor, with Talkin' Loud making it's first album appearance. (GM)

JAMES BROWN Polydor 533 052-2 Make It Funky - The Big Payback, 1971-1975 ● CD $31.98
2 CD's, 26 tracks 2 hours 34 min, essential
Culled from the Polydor vaults, this set includes unreleased cuts, alternate takes and hits from the albums "Hot Pants", "There it is", "Get On The Good Foot", the "Black Caesar" soundtrack, "Damn Right I Am Somebody", "The Payback", and "Hell". It's an amazing compilation documenting Brown's output for the half-decade after Bootsy left (Bobby Byrd would also split shortly thereafter but is heard briefly here). Great, straight early '70's stuff: Escape-Ism/ Hotpants/ I'm A Greedy Man/ Make It Funky. Also included are cuts representing Brown's first experiments with studio musicians, such as Billy Cobham and Joe Beck (King Heroin) and his later full-blown sessions with all-stars such as Randy Brecker, Jon Faddis, Joe Farrell, David Spinoza, Hugh McCracken, Buster Williams, Steve Gadd and Pee Wee Ellis (I Got A Bag Of My Own/ Down And Out In New York City). Once guitarist Chank Nolen rejoined the fold, the funk got back on the "one" (The Payback) and when Maceo Parker returned, all hell cut loose: Poppa Don't Take No Mess/ My Thang/ Funky President (unreleased version)/ I Feel Good/ Hotpants (live) all point up Brown's rejuvenated mid-'70's career. An unbelievable two-disc blast! This music was made to do two things: dancing is one of 'em. Buy this set and figure out the other. You won't be sorry. (PL)

 
JAMES BROWN Polydor 171502 Live At The Apollo (Deluxe Edition) ● CD $9.98
12 tracks, essential
Not a new release but not reviewed before. This is the newly re-mastered and expanded edition. Being one of the greatest live albums of all time (not to mention one of the greatest Soul albums of all time), this was essential from the start; now this edition is like the icing on a solid gold cake. This is the one and only James Brown at arguably the peak of his powers live in 1962. Don't let the small amount of tracks fool you--this man invented the power medley! Everything that is a clich‚ about James Brown now wasn't back then--it was lightning in a bottle. The bonus tracks on this are 4 singles mixes of songs from the regular album. I could go on and on about how great this is, but many better writers than I already have and I'm sure many more will over the next 44 years. (JM)

 
JAMES BROWN Polydor 849 108-2 Star Time ● CD $59.98
In February of 1956, talent scout Ralph Bass brought James Brown and The Famous Flames to King Records, cutting the Orioles-inspired Please Please Please. King prez Syd Nathan hated both Brown and Please, and tried to fire Bass in the bargain, eventually releasing the song just to prove his contention that it was a piece of crap. The song rocketed to Top 5 chart status, and launched the roller coaster career of one of pop music's biggest stars. This fabulous set gathers 72 of J.B.'s best sides, covering 28 of his prime years as a latter-day R&B hitmaker, soul sensation, and godfather to today's hip-hop/ rap generation. Throughout the 60's and 70's Brown was a one-man revolution, a successful black businessman, idol to millions, a potent political force who circulated with the Panthers, LBJ, Hubert Humphrey and even Richard Nixon, and, most importantly, a musical visionary whose influence permeated urban black music for decades, extending to the realms of African pop, disco, fusion jazz and even the music of the MTV set. The cuts, chronologically ordered over 4 CD's, are simply his best and biggest hits, some as alternate, live, or re-mixed/re-edited versions, but mostly the original takes from King/Federal, Dade, Try Me, Smash, Polydor, People, TK and Tommy Boy labels, covering every significant phase from the legacy of Soul Brother #1. An incredible 5 hours of music, including Please Please Please/ Try Me/ Bewildered/ Good Good Lovin'/ I'll Go Crazy/ It's A Man's World/ I Got You/ Papa's Got A Brand New Bag/ Cold Sweat/ Say It Loud/ Funky Drummer/ Get Up/ Sex Machine/ Super Bad/ Soul Power/ Get On The Good Foot/ Papa Don't Take No Mess and dozens more. An essential purchase for anyone with even a measurable amount of soul. (MB)

 
JAMES BROWN Spectrum 984 0899 Fine Old Foxy Self ● CD $22.98
A nice introduction to some of the best of the Godfather of Soul in this modestly priced three CD set from England.

LATTIMORE BROWN AIM 1507 Little Box Of Tricks ● CD $15.98
17 tracks, 43 min., very highly recommended
Lattimore (sometimes Latimore) Brown cut his first records for Excello (and its Zil subsidiary) in 1960, but his finest work came beginning in 1965 during his tenure at the Nashville label Sound Stage 7, the source of this impressive release. Brown's muscular, blues-soaked soul recordings never climbed any national charts, but it wasn't for lack of quality. Some tracks here were recorded in Memphis (Don't Trust No One, I'n Not Through Loving You) at Stax and feature Booker T & the MGs and the Memphis Horns! One cut finds Brown in a duet with his label-mate and friend Roscoe Shelton. Cuts such as It Hurts So Good, Bless Your Heart I Love You, It's A Sad Sad World epitomize the classic sound of southern soul. Fans of the form should snap this up while the snapping is good. (JC)

 
MAXINE BROWN Kent CDKEND 187 Spotlight On/ Greatest Hits ● CD $18.98
Two Wand LPs plus 8 bonus tracks.
MAXINE BROWN: Anything For A Laugh/ Anything You Do Is Alright/ Ask Me/ Coming Back To You/ Do It Now/ Gotta Find A Way/ He Does Something To Me (aka You Do Something To Me)/ He's The Only Guy I'll Ever Love/ I Cry Alone/ I Don't Need Anything/ I Got Love/ I've Got A Lot Of Love Left In Me/ If You Gotta Make A Fool Of Somebody/ It's Gonna Be Alright/ Listen To My Heart/ Little Girl Lost/ Oh No, Not My Baby/ One In A Million/ One Step At A Time/ Since I Found You/ Slipping Thru My Fingers/ Soul Serenade/ We Can Work It Out/ When I Fall In Love/ Wonder What My Baby's Doing Tonight/ Wrong Number, Right Girl/ Yesterday's Kisses/ You Upset My Soul

 
MAXINE BROWN Kent CDKEND 949 Oh No, Not My Baby ● CD $18.98
A great 28 track collection of Wand material recorded between 1963 and '67 and previously on the the two LPs Kent 028, 047. Included are remakes of her 2 Nomar hits Funny/ All In My Mind plus Wand hits like Coming Back To You/ Oh No Not My Baby/ It's Gonna Be Alright and others. The disc also features 7 tracks not originally issued by Wand including the fine Baby Cakes written and produced by Otis Redding in 1967.

 
MAXINE BROWN Varese 66378 25 All-Time Greatest Hits ● CD $16.98
25 tracks, 64 min, recommended
Fine uptown soul with her 2 early hits for Nomar in '63 - All In My Mind/ Funny, as well as all her great solo singles & key LP tracks done for Wand/Scepter, including the classic Oh No, Not My Baby (unfortunately, her duets with Chuck Jackson aren't here). However, what may be the best is her legendary Muscle Shoals side written & produced by Otis Redding, which were shelved after Otis's death & unheard until now (Baby Cakes/ Slipping Through My Fingers). (GM)

 
RUTH BROWN Acrobat ACMCD 4223 Jukebox Hits, 1949-1955 ● CD $14.98
20 tracks, 56 minutes, recommended
This series that Acrobat is doing covers the American Juke Box/ Harlem Hit Parade/ Race Records/ Rhythm & Blues chart hits from stars of the `40s and `50s in chronological order. So in Ruth Brown's case you have it starting with So Long in 1949 and going through I Want To Do More from 1955. The sound on this is great, Ruth Brown is one of the best ever and even though I personally prefer more of the later tracks, all of the material is quality. The liner notes on this are excellent, but the layout is only fair. I wish one of these labels could find another picture to use of her and using the most famous picture of Ruth Brown a total of five times on the package just starts looking stupid. (JM)
RUTH BROWN: 5 10 15 Hours/ As Long As I'm Moving/ Bye Bye Young Men/ Daddy Daddy/ I Can See Everybody's Baby/ I Gotta Have You/ I Know/ I Want To Do More/ I'll Wait For You/ It's Love Baby (24 Hours A Day)/ Love Has Joined Us Together/ Mama He Treats Your Daughter Mean/ Mambo Baby/ Oh What A Dream/ Sentimental Journey/ Shine On/ So Long/ Somebody Touched Me/ Teardrops From My Eyes/ Wild Wild Young Men

 
RUTH BROWN Atlantic 82061 Miss Rhythm - Greatest Hits And More ● CD $31.98
2-CD set - 40 of her most memorable Atlantic recordings - big hits and 4 unreleased cuts! Wow!!

 
RUTH BROWN Collectables 6232 Ruth Brown/ Miss Rhythm ● CD $13.98
Ruth's first two Atlantic albums from 1957 and 1959 on one CD. Includes her early hits like Lucky Lips/ This Little Girl's Gone Rockin'/ Jack Of Diamonds and others.

 
RUTH BROWN Fantasy 9662 Blues On Broadway ● CD $14.98
1989 recording with Hank Crawford, Red Holloway et. al.

 
RUTH BROWN Fantasy 9665 The Songs Of My Life ● CD $14.98
12 tracks, 70 min., recommended Ruth Brown's new album is so suggestive of late nights and after hours jazz clubs that it actually gets dark out when you play it. Okay, maybe not, but it feels that way. Maybe it's because, aside from some Hammond B-3 organ, no electronic instruments are used. This time out Brown apparently had artistic control for a change, selecting her producer (Rodney Jones), as well as her songs. With a few exceptions, she chose classic ballads like God Bless The Child/ I've Got The World On A String/ Stormy Weather/ God Bless The Child. One exception is her reading of Eric Clapton's vapid Tears In Heaven, another is the Rodney Jones title track, the weakest cuts. Superb support from sidemen Mike Renzi (p.), Jones (gtr.), Rufus Reid (b.), William Galison (hca), Akira Tana (drm.), and others. (JC)

 
RUTH BROWN & LAVERN BAKER Rev-Ola 149 Wild, Wild Women ● CD $15.98
28 Tracks, 76 minutes, highly recommended
This is a fantastic set that features two of the all time best blues women trading tracks, 28 in all: 15 for LaVern Baker, 13 for Ruth Brown. There is a good mix of well-known and lesser-known tracks on this. You get LaVern Baker's Tweedle Dee, you don't get Ruth Browns Mama, He Treats Your Daughter Mean, but you do get Ruth Brown's stellar duet with Clyde McPhatter on I Gotta Have You and a couple dozen more, nearly perfect tunes. The extensive fold out booklet is a beauty and puts the cherry on top. I loved this from start to finish and heartily recommend it. (JM)
LAVERN BAKER: Bop Ting A Ling/ Fee Fi Fo Fum/ How Can You Leave A Man Like This/ In A Crying Mood/ Jim Dandy/ Living My Life For You/ Lots And Lots Of Love/ Mine All Mine/ My Happiness Forever/ Play It Fair/ Soul On Fire/ That's All I Need/ Tomorrow Night/ Tweedle Dee/ You Better Stop/ RUTH BROWN: As Long As I'm Movin'/ Bye Bye Young Men/ Hello Little Boy/ I Want To Do More/ It's Love Baby (24 Hours Of The Day)/ Love Contest/ Mambo Baby/ Oh What A Dream/ Old Man River/ Please Don't Freeze/ Somebody Touched Me/ Wild Wild Young Men/ I Gotta Have You

 
NAPPY BROWN & KIP ANDERSON Ripete 2242 Best Of Both Worlds ● CD $15.98
12 tracks, 38 min., highly recommended
If you like your music rockin' ala 1950s or you're into the "beach music" scene, this CD is right for going 'down in the alley'. Both were former gospel singers born in the Carolinas - Nappy, in 1929/Oct/12 (Charlotte, NC),Kip, in 1945/Jan/24 (Anderson, SC). Nappy sings solo lead on "(Night Time Is) The Right Time", "Down In The Bottom", "Don't Be Angry" and Percy Mayfield/Ray Charles' "Hit The Road Jack" ; Kip sings solo lead on "It Should've Been Me", Hal Paige's "Big Foot May", "Knife And Fork" and "When You're Ugly Like Me". On the rest, they sort of encourage each other (I wouldn't call it a duet), with Nappy singing the main lead on Jackie Brenston's "Rocket 88", Lucky Millinder/Wynonie Harris' "Who Threw The Whiskey in The Well", and (using his bass voice) "You Never Had It So Good". Stick McGhee's "Drinkin' Wine Spo Dee O Dee" gets a full-tilt Chuck Berry treatment, featuring mostly Kip with a Nappy intro/extro & trading off wine names. It rocks like mad and is only one of many highlights in this well recorded set. (EL)

 
O.B. BRYANT Good Times 7604 Blues Party ● CD $16.98
Fine selection of contemporary Southern blues and soul from vocalist O.B. Bryant. Produced by Vick Allen and R&B performer Frederick Knight it features new songs from Bryant, Knight, Ronnie Lovejoy and others. Soulful vocals and effective arrangements which make tasteful use of strings and vocal choruses.

 
RUSTY BRYANT & THE CAROLYN CLUB BAND Carolyn 101 America's Greatest Rock 'n Roll ● CD $17.98
23 tracks, 61 mins, recommended
Fine R&B sides featuring Columbus, Ohio sax blower Rusty Bryant. He plays in a solid honkin' style popularized in the mid 50s by the likes of Big Jay McNeely and Red Prysock. He plays a fine selection of instrumentals accompanied by a solid group including his one minor hit All Nite Long (actually his version of Night Train) plus a mix of covers and originals - Pink Champagne/ Blow, Rusty Blow/ House Rocker/ Back Street/ Ridin' With Rusty/ The Honeydripper/ Hanka Boo/ Foot Stompin' /Honky Tonk, Part 2/ Kittyhawk, Part 2 and others. There are a handful of vocals, a couple of them rather nondescript but there are also a couple of fine blues (Danger Blues/ I Need Someone) by female vocalist Janie Turner. Worth a listen. (FS)

 
SOLOMON BURKE Collectables 6225 If You Need Me/ Rock 'n Soul ● CD $13.98
 

 
SOLOMON BURKE Fat Possum 80358 Don't Give Up On Me ● CD $13.98
11 tracks, 52 min, highly recommended
Not a new release but not reviewed before. Produced by pop musician Joe Henry, "Don't Give Up On Me" features songs by Van Morrison, Tom Waits, Elvis Costello, Nick Lowe, Bob Dylan, and others (many offered up specifically for Burke). Even with so many pop influences, the album is all soul, from the slow burn of the title track (inked by Dan Penn) to the regret-soaked Brian Wilson effort Soul Searchin'. Burke makes it all sound easy. Who else could take a Barry Mann/Cynthia Weil song and make it sound like a soul anthem? Burke has been called the greatest soul singer ever by more than one, and this album adds more evidence to that argument. (JC)

 
SOLOMON BURKE Rounder 2053 A Change Is Gonna Come ● CD $16.98
Fine 1986 album - Love Buys Love/ Got To Get Myself Some Money/ Love Is All That Matters/ A Change Is Gonna Come/ When A Man Loves A Woman , etc .

 
SOLOMON BURKE Shout Factory 34341 Soul Of The Blues ● CD $11.98
12 tracks, 54 min., highly recommended
Whether at Atlantic Records or elsewhere, Solomon Burke has spent his recording career (he has about a dozen careers going at any one time) making fine albums. Most of them have been ignored by most, but in the last few years he's garnered some of the attention he's always deserved. Originally released in 1993 as Black Top BT-1095, this album finds him personalizing a twelve pack of bluesy chestnuts like Lonesome Highway, made memorable by Percy Mayfield, and Roy Brown's Good Rockin' Tonight. And have no doubt, Bishop Burke still has enough power, soul, and intensity in his voice to make the world turn just a little bit smoother than usual. A winner all the way. (JC)

 
SOLOMON BURKE Shout Factory 34342 Live At The The House Of Blues ● CD $11.98
12 tracks, 71 min., highly recommended
They call him the King of Rock & Soul because one genre just isn't big enough. His voice is plenty big, though, and anytime you doubt Burke's greatness, just have a listen to this live show, recorded in 1994 at the House Of The Blues in New Orleans (originally released on Black Top BT-1108 in 1995 when the W. C. Handy Blues Awards named it "Soul-Blues Album Of The Year"). Burke sings his own Cruel World, Down In The Valley, Just A Matter Of Time and others, including Wilson Pickett's If You Need Me, Roy Brown's Good Rockin' TonightI Almost Lost My Mind and a few others. No extra tracks but a welcome reissue nonetheless. (JC)

 
SOLOMON BURKE Spectrum 068 714-2 The Collection ● CD $11.98
18 track collection drawing on this great soul singer's recordings for MGM, ABC and Chess in the early and mid-70s -All For The Love Of Sunshine/ The Electronic Magnetism/ The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down/ We're Almost Home/ Get Up And Do Something For Yourself/ Shambala, etc.

 
SAM BUTERA Bear Family BCD 15449 Hot Nights In New Orleans ● CD $21.98
19 RCA/Groove sides - some unissued tracks and alternate takes.

 
SAM BUTERA Get Hip Archives 5008 And The Wildest - On Stage ● CD $15.98
9 tracks, 36 mins, recommended. Sam & The Witnesses lost the rights to the name after the death of their mentor, Louis Prima, whom they backed up for decades. Even at this late date, they're still spreading Louis's gospel 20 years after his death (I guess, there's no date on these recording, but they seem to be recent, in spite of the gret 50s-like cover!). Sam & crew do a great rendition of the Prima songbook live in Vegas, including the medlis of Cella Luna/When the Saints & Just A Gigolo/I Ain't Got Nobody, plus I'm Confessin'/ When You're Smiling/ Down On Bourbon St. (GM)

 
SAM BUTERA Jasmine 313 Sheer Energy ● CD $15.98
Jasmine is known for reissuing vintage jazz and vocal LP's, but this pair of CD's doesn't conform to the program. With the lack of useful notes, I can only assume that these are recent recordings made for sale at live shows, probably in Vegas and/ or other spots where the Prima legend lives on. Saxophone aficionados know that Sam Butera toted a mean tenor onstage during those countless casino nights with Louis Prima's wild band. A New Orleans native, Sam really had the stompin' sound of the south in his blood, and was about the only white saxman who could hang with the top players of the early rock and roll generation. As demonstrated on this pair, he also took a few vocal pointers from his boss, and here he delivers faves like Jump, Jive And Wail/ Pennies From Heaven/ Let The Good Times Roll/ Kansas City with eerie Primaesque precision. (MB)

 
SAM BUTERA Jasmine 314 By Request ● CD $15.98
As on Sheer Energy, Sam resurrects Prima's gravelly tones with uncanny accuracy on oft-requested favorites When You're Smiling/ Just A Gigolo/ I Ain't Got Nobody/ St. Louis Blues/ Closer To The Bone. You Rascal You is an astonishing copy of the original but with so many Prima reissues out now, this is destined to be a "fans-only" curiosity. The fare is rounded out with standards like Cabaret/ For Once In My Life, some good blues with Sam bending his tonsils in a solid rockin' Wynonie Harris direction, the obligatory Italian dialect number, and a couple of lackluster instrumentals. Closer To The Bone/ Night Train also appear on the other CD. (MB)

 
SAM BUTERA & THE WILDEST Jasmine 319 A Tribute To Louis Prima ● CD $15.98

 
SAM BUTERA & THE WITNESSES Jasmine 346 Louis Prima Presents The Wildest Clan/ Apache! ● CD $15.98
24 tracks, recommended
Best known as Louis Prima's backup band, with tenor saxist Butera being Luigi's right hand man, Sam's band put out numerous LPs on their own - in fact, they're STILL playing & recording! This set reissues 2 Dot LPs. The "Wildest Clan" from '60 features Sam as well as other band members, including guitarist Robin Roberts & drummer Bobby Morris, on a dozen up tempo tunes, mostly R&B & country tunes including Ko Ko Mo/ Let The Good Times Roll/ You Send Me, with the closing Swingin' Sam penned my Sam & his boss. "Apache!" from '61 has a self-explanatory sub-title - "Swingin' Sam Blows His Powerhouse Tenor Sax In 12 Great Instrumental Hits," with a couple original jams (Sam's Blues/ Sam's Boogie) along with rockin' covers, including Spanish Harlem/ Hearts Of Stone, even Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini! (GM)

 
SAM BUTERA & THE WILDEST Poor Boy 91092 Still Cookin' ● CD $14.98
Tenor saxman/ vocalist Sam Butera was a mainstay of the Louis Prima band for many years and continues to keep the style and spirit of Louis' music alive. This collection features him with a good sized band on a very varied selection of material blending blues, R&B, soul, jazz, pop, even a touch of country. Among the songs and tunes are Little Mother Won't You Please Come Home/ Bourbon Street Parade/ When A Man Loves A Woman/ Up Against The Wall, You Redneck Mother/ Hava Nagila/ Alexander's Ragtime Band/ Be My LOve/ Fever and more.
