ECCENTRIC SOUL: THE SARU LABEL (2LP)

the 20th volume of our flagship eccentric soul series has all the boxes checked: guntoting, skip-tracing record producers, child stars, rip-offs, the worlds greatest bail bondsman, swindles, soaring falsettos, and a dwindling rust-belt cityscape offering mere glimpses of hope before the record industry escaped for the coasts. helmed by the ojays bobby massey, saru was a creative vortex that pulled cuyahoga countys greatest talent in, making a strong case for cleveland to contend with detroit, philly, and memphis as americas soul music’s capital. includes obscure and unknown sides from the out of sights, the elements, pandella kelly, david peoples, sir stanley, the ponderosa twins + 1, ba-roz, bobby dukes, and of course, the o’jays.

YOU VE GOT A WOMAN (7 INCH)
7" Vinyl US 24.01.18
lion and the mean ecstasy of “you’ve got a woman”, the b-side to their sole release comprise a rare burst of psychedelic western soul from two names best known for dutch progressive rock and new wave. drummer peter de leeuwe, departing from the symphonic leanings of dutch prog-fixtures ekseption, penned it in 1975, layering syncopated explosions of hand-claps, vibraslap and slick drumwork with neutron-star density, with super-producer hans van hemert nearly bursting glenn robles vocals through the fore. the shoes subtle edit provides exactly that, gently teasing the organ- and requintohinted contours of the track to better suit the treasure within. chicago-based septet whitney have brought some attention to youve got a woman with a recent cover, and the faith with which they recreate much of the original instrumentation proves the extent of lions accomplishment.

ANY OTHER WAY (LTD DELUXE 2X12 LP)
2x12" Vinyl UK 24.01.18
known by genre aficionados as one of the greatest singers and most riveting stage presences in soul music, jackie shane has remained largely unknown outside toronto, where her career briefly flowered in the 1960s. beyond her unmistakable gift of the gab, shane is a pioneer of transgender rights, born in a male body but unabashedly living her entire life as a woman at a time when to do so seemed unthinkable. any other way is the first artist-approved collection of ms. shanes work, ollecting all six of her 45s and every highlight from the legendary 1967 live sessions at the sapphire tavern, including three mind blowing, previously- unreleased tracks. rob bowman’s 20.000 word essay is jackies first communication with the public in nearly half a century, telling for the first time ever jackie shanes story in her own words. this deluxe two album set is copiously illustrated with never-before seen pictures from a career and a life unlike any other.

ALL NIGHT LONG: NORTHERN SOUL FLOOR FILLERS (2X12)
2x12" Vinyl lp US 15.09.17
whilst not the first uk dance scene the mods had that covered – northern soul is the longest running. those northern clubbers who eschewed late 60s psychedelic fripperies for obscure old soul records with the requisite beat, couldnt have known what they started. after using up all the uk released sides they began digging in the united states and after nearly 50 years the northern soul scene has probably unearthed more great music than any other. all night long is our tribute to those pioneers and includes current in-demanders such as the sensations demanding man, classics by the chandlers and ernest mosley and a host of other dancefloor friendly masterpieces. all night long, can you feel that beat and extra added soul will be available on cd & double vinyl and are compiled by dj and award winning compiler dean rudland, with stunning artwork from his long-time collaborators the unknown. across the three volumes there are 60 tracks of soul, funk and boogie.

there are hundreds of bootlegs out there to sate the ravenous soulero set, and so often they incorporate songs in the vast numero catalog. rather than beat them, numero joins them with our answer to the iconic east side story series. eschewing our classic look and standard-bearing copious notes for sardonic artwork and impeccable selections, numbero is proud to present a ‘bootleg’ you can be proud of (because it’s all licensed). this time we’ve set our sights on the most unique of soul cultures: the irreplicable melting pot of san antonio. included here are all songs never before issued other than in minuscule pressings on 45, never distributed outside of bexar county limits.

10.000 KIDS WITH GUITARS (2X12 LP)
2x12" Vinyl lp UK 09.06.17
what does teen spirit smell like, anyway? it might smell something like noise addict. like the real life stars of some sort of choose-your-own-adventure book about pursuing rock stardom, few bands ever led a more charmed existence, springing from the sydney suburb of bondi into seemingly overnight international fame as friends and collaborators of sonic youth, fugazi, and the beastie boys. through a combination of relentless drive, luck, and an admirable lack of self-doubt, noise addict spanned puberty to surpass the haters and join radio birdman and nick cave as a strange but permanent piece of australian punk history.
compiled here are 25 tracks, including their evan dando-worshipping satire “i wish i was him,” the thurston moore produced demo, choice cuts from their grand royal-issued ep and lp, and covers of “let’s lynch the landlord” and “back in your life.” the entire sordid adolescent tale is covered in incredible detail inside the black and white 16 page zine. and finally, for the first time in the history of record pressing, and for no good reason at all, the cover for 10.000 kids with guitars doubles as a working chalkboard.

CAN YOU FEEL THAT BEAT (2X12 LP)
2x12" Vinyl lp US 18.10.16
funk was the syncopated groove that emerged in the mid-sixties through hits from james brown and dyke and the blazers. it was a natural development out of rhythm and blues. thousands of local bands tried to emulate brown’s success, and in the process created a plethora of rare and sought after 45s and album cuts that have been mined by djs and producers to fill floors or provide breakbeats. whilst the 20 tracks on this compilation would cost you thousands of pounds to own on their original issue, that isn’t really the point. instead you get to listen to magnificent grooves such as mickey & the soul generations explosive ‘iron leg’, andrew brown’s blues tinged ‘you made me suffer’ or the message music of 24 carat black.

AFTERSCHOOL SPECIAL: THE 123S OF KID SOUL (2LP)
2x12" Vinyl UK 16.09.16
the formula was simple: marry bubblegum and soul to the absolute sincerity of an enthusiastic child, cross your fingers and pray for airplay. but while the youthful sums of that formula may have grown up and walked away from their illusions of stardom, their permanent records remain. by 1973, michael, tito, jermaine, marlon and jackie were as hip as kids could get—household names, with lunchboxes, coloring books, a saturday morning cartoon, and an alpha-bits cereal commercial pushing the j5 brand onto any kid with television reception. their impressive run of four consecutive #1 singles playing on both pop and r&b stations cemented their appeal to both whites and blacks, prompting mgm to launch the osmonds as the safer (read: white) alternative. and parents? well michael had that wrapped up with his impossible-not-to-love mini-james brown thing. even their song selection straddled both sides, with “zip a dee do dah” and “abc” for kids, and contemporary standards “standing in the shadows of love” and “my cherie amour” for the older crowd. this extreme marketing and merchandising juggernaut created the kid soul explosion. a decade removed from our acclaimed home schooled compilation comes a fresh batch of talent show titans. with enterprising parents, neighbors, and teachers turning play dates into recording dates, groups like magical connection, little man and the inquires, and five ounces of soul emulated the jacksons, who’d made grade-school stardom appear easy as abc. afterschool special: the 123s of kid soul contains 19 tiny tunes ranging from bilingual d.a.r.e. anthem, to james brown bio, to young love and life beyond the playground.

ECCENTRIC SOUL: SITTING IN THE PARK (LP + MP3)
12" Vinyl lp US 16.06.16
hear the document of one man’s passion crossing over into obsession. chicago radio disc jockey and soul archivist bob abrahamian was deeply devoted to celebrating and documenting unknown chicagoland group harmony music. upon his untimely passing in 2014, he left behind hundreds of radio programs and a daunting collection of 35.000 carefully-selected 45s. our collection borrows its title from abrahamian’s long-running and acclaimed whpk radio show, and it spins a tale that’s cautionary, inspiring, and set to the sounds of the impossible-to-find tracks that made bob abrahamian’s on-air playlist and animated the radio programs that were his life’s work. collected here are 12 artists featured on sitting in the park, in their own words and through the lens of our friend bob.
a decade into its limitless ambitions, numero’s flagship eccentric soul series is effectively remapping the american soul diaspora. each compilation explores, in exacting detail, another us city’s smallest time hooks and would-be world beaters tossed into the glutted big-hole record sea of the 1960s and 70s. in eccentric soul’s alternate universe are motley and mishandled motowns beyond number, and the unforgettable records that could have, and should have, and never did. find their stories here, retold for the first time.

one-take ambient instrumental travels, composed in strict committee by the trio of kevin blagg, william suran, and dante carfagna. recorded spontaneously in rural arkansas, bulging sub-woofers lope through fissures of skeletal banjo and pitched down pedal steel, while delicately arranged basins of synth and guitar reverberate, providing a steady stream of granular epiphanies. utterly faded, yet still possessing crystalline clarity, these twelve songs continually attain summits rarely reached within the span of four-minute transmissions.

stallworth s biography remains a mere sketch, a 22-year-old wife and mother when news anchor bill jacocks saw her perform at the karamu house community theater in cleveland, little else about her is known. years later, word on the street was that stallworth had gotten caught up in the drug scene, but during their brief interaction in 1974, jacocks penned and stallworth delicately performed *questions* parts i and ii, together creating a silky funk masterpiece. the singles elegant a-side is matched with a sensual edit of moans and purrs on the flip. as jacocks focused on his career in broadcasting, music fell by the wayside, but he never quite shook his time with stallworth at agency recordings, saying, *fifteen years later, i moved back to cleveland and started looking for her. i m still looking.*

vision songs vol. 1 (1984) is the laraaji album like no other, located at the intersection of new age and gospel. it is both his outlier and magnum opus, the feel-good diy tape of the century. discovered busking in washington square park by brian eno in the late 70s, engagement with the eternal flow has led laraaji to, seemingly by magic, emerge as the most beloved avatar of the unstoppable new age music revival of recent years. now vision songs rewrites laraaji’s musical history. unlike the many instrumental, free form albums upon which his reputation was built, this is an album of songs, with lyrics, verses, choruses. vision songs is literally a revelation -- of a master songwriter whose unbelievably catchy best compositions such as “we shall be lifted”, “all of a sudden”, and “is this clear?” belong in any great american songbook. casio synth jams recorded at spiritual retreat guest rooms and a tiny bedroom on the upper west side, lysergicallyspectacular anthems for a continually arriving new moment, “channeled,” as laraaji states in the album’s eloquent liner notes, “from the sky,” previously available in an edition of 100 cassettes sold at yoga retreats and on the streets of new york city, vision songs is humbly offered on vinyl, cd, and streaming for the very first time. this is where this is going on, this is where this is taking place, this is how this is going on. is this very clear?

aufgenommen 1971 von einem 27-jährigen pfarrer und seinem schulchor, ist -like a ship- eine rührende und mächtige meditation über die unbegrenzten nachwirkungen der bürgerrechtsbewegung. mit der hilfe der chess/cadet maestros gene barge, phil upchurch und richard evans verfolgt das album eine mischung aus euphorischem evangelium und mayfield-artigem politischem soul, mit schlittenglocken, handklatschen und jazzigen klavierstößen. gesampelt von t.i., kanye und khaled, schuf barrett einen begeisterten, crossover-gospel-klassiker, der immer noch sehr relevant ist.

NOW THAT I HAVE YOU / STAY WITH ME (7 INCH)
7" Vinyl US 02.02.17
having anthologized his ‘60s songbook with 1976’s overdue long-player positive-negative, grand rapids, michigan’s tommy mcgee was eager to place something more modern into the marketplace. brass at brunswick and mca failed to hear a hit in mcgee’s sultry-yet-assured delivery of “now that i have you.” unable to find a home for the romantic anthem, mcgee issued his 2-step masterpiece on his own tmg records in 1981. mcgee would revisit the composition later in the decade, dressing the tune with drum machines and synthesizers for a run of 12-inch singles. however, this 45-only version from 1976 captures the progressive soul stepper at its most organic.

EXTRA ADDED SOUL: CROSSOVER, MODERN AND FUNKY SOUL (2X12 INCH LP)
2x12" Vinyl lp US 18.10.16
there is a lot of confusion with regards to the modern soul scene. an off-shoot of northern soul, it initially mixed new release independent soul, with post late-60s soul that didn’t fit with the northern scene. they championed a lot of great records, but this was the mid-80s and it now seems odd to describe nearly 50 year old records as modern soul but somehow the name has stuck. extra added soul luxuriates in this contradiction, as it allows us to mix up the boogie like love explosion by donnell pittman, with two-step chicago classics by elvin bishop or el anthony, or the danceable sweet soul of dysons faces with gil scott-heron alike patience by rokk. amongst the twenty tracks there is also room for a touch of prince on 94 easts exceptional if you see me and the cosmic soul of karriems super rarity i love you. on the 14th october 2016 j&d records release three exceptional compilations that look at vintage african-american music through the prism of uk club culture. all night long, can you feel that beat and extra added soul will be available on cd & double vinyl and are compiled by dj and award winning compiler dean rudland, with stunning artwork from his long-time collaborators the unknown. across the three volumes there are 60 tracks of soul, funk and boogie.

HEARING MUSIC (2X12 LP)

she was a composer who wrote scores with geometric shapes, a poet who became a pioneer of early electronic music. joanna brouk’s little-known body of work exists at the nexus between ambient, new age, drone, and classical minimalism—stark in its simplicity, lush in its expanse. studying under robert ashley and terry riley at the fabled mills college center for contemporary music before graduating into the margins of the 70s bay area new music scene, ms. brouk blazed her own trail well outside of the musical establishment to create uncompromising electronic and acoustic work of sleek beauty and primal power. describing herself as less a composer than a channel, she took her cues from the frequencies of the natural world and the talents of collaborators like maggi payne and bill maraldo. hearing music collects for the first time the deepest cuts from her beguiling and rare cassette releases and her archive of previously unreleased recordings.

the second in numeros series of peeks into the world of regional studios hones in on mickey rouses lowland operation out of beaumont, texas. long after the boppers plane crashed and the winter brothers (johnny and edgar) and janis joplin split, texas golden triangle was home to a vibrant scene of musicians, songwriters, and entrepreneurs just trying to make it in houston, let alone the world.
from the ashes of a vibrant garage and stage band scene, the lowland studio and its clientele were formed. holed up in a rundown strip mall, groups like mourning sun, insight out, sage, sassy, mother lion, hope, circus, and boot hill tracked out hundreds of demos, most of which were put on the shelf and left to bake in the south east texas heat. until now.

THE PROMISES OF YESTERDAY (2X12 INCH)
2x12" Vinyl D 13.01.10
previously unissued recordings by stax cult favorite 24 carat black. 150 gram lp housed in embossed gatefold sleeve. the promises of yesterday is by no means a sequel to ghetto: misfortunes wealth. missing are the poignant and bleak sermons on the pain of inner city existence, replaced by dusky, sensuous re workings of love songs warren had written as far back as 1965. wildly divergent in tone, scope, and mission, the second 24 carat black album is tethered to the first by a single, crucial element: its creator.

A LOVELY SIGHT (LP + 7 INCH)
12" Vinyl lp UK 11.08.09
by the late 60s, radio-delivered psychedelia had saturated even the heartland. a lovely sight, pisces only attempt at an lp, never made wax, but the fuzz guitar phrases and tambourine shuffle of >dear one< instantly illustrate the bands woozy realm. deeper inside, bass scales borrowed from sgt. pepper give way to who moves wrecked by bad fidelity and harsh intrusions of found audio. jefferson airplanes swirled, lysergic haight street utopia melds with the urban narcosis of the velvet undergrounds east village. but pisces hailed from another ghost town altogether: rockford, illinois, where rusted, endless plains bear close resemblance to a bummer acid trip or a junkies rock bottom. in 1969, the industrial midwest was hurting for the hard stuff, but what it got was plenty of the white album?enough to have jim krein, paul diventi, and linda bruner recording through a glass onion all their own. the unsettling balance of their unissued lp combines homespun psychedelic vision and secondhand studio trickery with naive readings of the rock sound of the day, resulting in a diverse, haunted rock headspace few coastal bands ever flew through, let alone over.
