Marcos Valle - Samba ''Demais''
Marcos Valle
Samba ''Demais''
LP | 1963 | EU | Reissue (Cornbread)
15,99 €*
Release:1963 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
Marcos Valle's incredible 1963 debut, Samba ''Demais'', established him as one of the premier performers and composers in the emerging Brazilian popular music landscape. Barely out of his Rio high school, where classmates included fellow Brazilian musical legends Edu Lobo and Dori Caymmi, Valle caught the eye of label executives and had a debut record out before his 20th birthday. Though he would later go on to be a massive superstar across his native country and a cult figure throughout the rest of the world, these humble beginning show Valle already had a complete mastery of the samba songwriting form and was already a brilliant performer. An essential Brazilian title on 180 gram vinyl with 1 bonus track from Cornbread.
Wanda Jackson - There's A Party Goin’ On
Wanda Jackson
There's A Party Goin’ On
LP | 1959 | EU | Reissue (Cornbread)
13,99 €*
Release:1959 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Rock / Indie
The first female singer of the early rock and roll era, Wanda was encouraged to try rock and roll by Elvis Presley himself. It was 1955 when Wanda met Elvis during the 'Ozark Jubilee,' a country tour through the south. She didn't think she had the voice for it, but he disagreed. He even recommended some songs for her. At first she was reluctant, but she signed a recording contract with Capitol and decided to give it a try. During the next few years, Wanda produced numerous examples of raw, prototypical rock & roll. The most distinctive aspect was her voice. She developed a wild, growling sound that at times sounds possessed or strangely alien, capable of going from sweet innocence to hellcat at the push of a button. Originally released in 1959 during the 'Queen of Rockabilly's' prime at Capitol Records, There's A Party Goin' On features a solid collection of songs in tune with the title track as well as covers of a handful of early rock hits such as 'Tweedlee Dee' and 'Kansas City.' The set is highlighted by the staggering guitar playing of Roy Clark as exemplified on the standout cut 'Hard Headed Woman’. Reissued on 180 gram LP with download card and 2 bonus tracks.
Maya Angelou - Miss Calypso
Maya Angelou
Miss Calypso
LP | 1956 | EU | Reissue (Cornbread)
13,99 €*
Release:1956 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
At age 28, prior to her fame as a poet and author, Maya Angelou (born Marguerite Annie Johnson) was performing modern dance and singing calypso tunes in San Francisco nightclubs. Harry Belafonte had just hit the big time and made calypso a household name, and Angelou followed suit in 1956 with a record of her own, her first and only attempt to hit the big time in the music business. By 1959 she had moved to NYC and joined the Harlem Writers Guild and the rest, as they say, is history. That, however, is not to dismiss this record as merely a footnote in her history, it is in fact a fine piece of exotica, a killer LP of pop calypso that should appeal not only to fans of her writing, and lovers of 50s kitsch exotica, but calypso fans in general. Reissued on 180 gram LP with download code.

Shirelles, The
Tonight’s The Night
LP | 1961 | EU | Reissue (Cornbread)
13,99 €*
Release:1961 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
The pride of Passaic, New Jersey, the girl group The Shirelles was formed in 1957 by four friends from high school. After some early singles with chart success, they released their debut album in 1961, Tonight's The Night. Blending pop with doo-wop and R&B sensibilities, and with songwriting from the classic team of Goffin/King, Tonight's The Night is notable for "Will You Love Me Tomorrow", the very first Billboard #1 hit pop single from an African-American girl group, making this a truly groundbreaking record. Essential girl-group pop from one of the genre's true innovators, reissued on 180 gram LP with download code and 2 bonus tracks.
Nina Simone - Nina Simone With Strings
Nina Simone
Nina Simone With Strings
LP | 2019 | EU | Original (Cornbread)
14,99 €*
Release:2019 / EU – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
As noted above, the singer-songwriter and pianist Nina Simone came to prominence in the late 1950s after she signed to the Bethlehem label for her debut album, Little Girl Blue, which contained the breakthrough hit “I Loves You Porgy,” as well as future anthem, “My Baby Just Cares For Me.” Her subsequent move to Coolpix Records, the audio subsidiary of Columbia Pictures, allowed her near total artistic control of her material and her lengthy tenure with the company brought plenty of popular album releases. The 1966 oddity Nina With Strings was issued by Coolpix a couple of years after she left the company to begin recording for Philips; a strange mix of live recordings and studio outtakes, released without her knowledge or permission, the presence of orchestral strings on several tracks gives the album its title and overriding theme. The version of “I Loves You Porgy” included here is noticeably slower than the hit version issued by Bethlehem and the sense-surround strings are suitably retarded; “Falling In Love Again,” “Baubles Bangles and Beads,” “Spring Is Here,” “That’s All” and “The Man With A Horn” are all given similarly lush orchestral arrangements, though Canonball Adderley’s “Chain Gain,” Simone’s moving original “Blackbird” and “Porgy I Is Your Woman Now” are all present in their unadulterated forms.
Bola Sete - Aqui Esta O Bola Sete
Bola Sete
Aqui Esta O Bola Sete
LP | 1957 | EU | Reissue (Cornbread)
13,99 €*
Release:1957 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
The Brazilian born master guitarist Bola Sete (literally translated to “Seven Ball” and a snooker reference) originally studied music at the Conservatory of Rio while playing in his own jazz sextet and small samba combos. Sete spent time in Italy and also absorbed jazz influences as he was a avid fan of Charlie Christian and Django Reinhardt. It was these influences, along with the local samba and bossa nova flavor he was absorbing on a daily basis in Brazil that form the foundation of his sound. This record, his debut album from 1957, combines those influences beautifully in a perfect jazz samba setting, a fully formed artist who had been a professional musician for years before releasing this album. Sete counted among his admirers and fans such disparate legends as Dizzy Gillespie and John Fahey, and one listen to this masterful debut will tell you why. An absolute essential on 180 gram vinyl.
Furry Lewis - Back On My Feet Again
Furry Lewis
Back On My Feet Again
LP | 1961 | EU | Reissue (Cornbread)
13,99 €*
Release:1961 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
Furry Lewis was a Mississippi native who found his first success in Memphis in the 1920s, recording now highly sought after sides for labels like Vocalion and Victor. Throughout the Depression and WWII Lewis maintained his day job as a street sweeper for the City of Memphis, a job he kept for over 40 years, even after the folk revival hit and he began performing and recording again. This album, originally released in 1961, is one of his earliest revival efforts and remains one of his strongest recordings to date. Featuring his unique country blues guitar style and soulful voice, this is a forgotten gem from a blues legend that deserves to be named with the greats like Patton, Johnson, Hopkins, and Hooker.
Lightnin' Hopkins - Lightnin' (The Blues Of Lightnin' Hopkins)
Lightnin' Hopkins
Lightnin' (The Blues Of Lightnin' Hopkins)
LP | 1960 | EU | Reissue (Cornbread)
13,99 €*
Release:1960 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
Lightnin' (The Blues Of Lightnin' Hopkins) was originally released in 1960. Featuring, as usual, his brilliant acoustic guitar work, Hopkins is accompanied here by a low key rhythm section of acoustic bass and mostly brushed drumming. The results of this minimal sound is some of the purest and most engaging blues music of the early 1960s. Though Hopkins had been recording blues and R&B for labels like Modern and Aladdin for over a decade, it was not until the folk revival firmly implanted itself into America's psyche that he crossed over to a larger audience. This is one of Hopkins earliest albums following his breakout onto the national stage and it's one of his finest performances of all-time.
Yusef Lateef - The Centaur And The Phoenix
Yusef Lateef
The Centaur And The Phoenix
LP | 1960 | EU | Reissue (Cornbread)
13,99 €*
Release:1960 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
Recorded in 2 days in October of 1960, The Centaur and The Phoenix is one of reeds player Yusef Lateef's most innovative early albums. Featuring modal and hard bop material, arrangements from a young Kenny Barron, and accompaniment from Curtis Fuller, Clark Terry, Joe Zawinul, and more, the album marks a bit of a turning point for Lateef as he expanded his sound, vision, and composing talents. With songs and arrangements clearly influenced by Charles Mingus' contemporaneous work, The Centaur and The Phoenix is a near perfect album from one of the most innovative jazz players of the mid 20th century
Nina Simone - Folksy Nina
Bob Dylan - The Karen Wallace Tape May 1960
Bob Dylan
The Karen Wallace Tape May 1960
LP | 2018 | EU | Original (Cornbread)
13,99 €*
Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Minneapolis/St. Paul, May 1960: a young Bob Dylan, still known as Robert Zimmerman and not yet even 19 years old, decides to drop out of college to move to New York City and pursue a career in folk music. That same month he plays a small gathering at Karen Wallace's apartment in St. Paul - Karen's sister, Terri, was an early fan and supporter of Dylan's - mostly covering American folk and blues standards, which he'd become obsessed with since starting at the University. Still a few years before his self-titled debut, this tape is one of the earliest documents of early Dylan, and since Karen Wallace attempted to sell the tape for $10,000 in the 1970s and subsequently disappeared along with the tape, its life is another great story in the history of Bob Dylan, one of the most enigmatic and idiosyncratic celebrities of the 20th Century.
Miles Davis & Thelonius Monk - Miles & Monk At Newport
Miles Davis & Thelonius Monk
Miles & Monk At Newport
LP | 2018 | EU | Original (Cornbread)
13,99 €*
Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Featuring the Miles Davis Sextet and the Thelonious Monk Quartet recorded in 1958 and 1963, respectively, this classic album features two of jazz music's most famous groups at the peak of their powers. This 1958 recording from Miles Davis is, in fact, one of the finest live documents of the classicKind Of Blueera group featuring Coltrane and Adderley, along with the great Bill Evans on piano. Monk's group as usual featured tenor-man Charlie Rouse, with help from Pee Wee Russell on clarinet, and they really stretch out on two 10+ minute tracks. Another great American jazz classic from Cornbread on 180 gram LP.

Scott Walker
Meet Scott Engel: The Humble Beginnings
LP | 2018 | EU | Original (Cornbread)
14,99 €*
Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
One of the most beguiling and enigmatic figures in popular music, Scott Walker (born Scott Engel) began his career in Los Angeles playing as a session bassist and recording demos. This eventually led to several singles under his birth name ranging across the popular teen sounds of the time, from rockabilly to doo wop to pure pop. Though these are decidedly of the time, you can hear in his voice the truly mind-bending work that was to come from Mr. Walker. A fascinating look at the early work of a truly brilliant cult figure. Released on 180 gram LP + download code.

13,99 €*
Release:1961 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
Recorded in 1961 at the Choreographers' Workshop, New York, Bad And Beautiful features outstanding performances from Arkestra veterans John Gilmore and Pat Patrick. Though Sun Ra is clearly the leader and founder of the Arkestra, it's records like this one that show the truly collaborative and communal nature of the group. Gilmore and Patrick's performances result in beautiful, flowing pieces that perfectly complement the playing of Ra and the group, showing us that there never has and never will be another jazz group quite like the Sun Ra Arkestra. Reissued on 180 gram LP with download card.

13,99 €*
Release:1956 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
The Unique Thelonious Monk, recorded in 1956, is the pianist’s second LP of standards. Though the recording was his label’s attempt at reaching a larger audience, this is in no way watered down; Monk takes his unique interpretive approach to tracks from the likes of the Gershwins, and Rodgers & Hart. With the help of a crack rhythm section of Blakey and Pettiford, this is one of Monk’s early career highlights and a truly unique piece of 50s piano trio jazz, back in print on 180 gram LP with download card.
Tony Sheridan - My Bonnie
Tony Sheridan
My Bonnie
LP | 1961 | EU | Reissue (Cornbread)
13,99 €*
Release:1961 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Rock / Indie
Tony Sheridan may be famous for only one thing at this point in time: performing with The Beatles in their earliest incarnation. But, at the time, in 1961-1962, he was a top beat performer and a charismatic singer in his own right. Featuring several tracks backed by The Beatles, My Bonnie is classic early-60s European beat and early rock and roll. Essential for any Beatles collector and any fan of early-60s Euro-beat. Reissued on 180 gram LP with download card and five bonus tracks.

Miles Davis And The Lighthouse All-Stars
At Last!
LP | 1980 | EU | Reissue (Cornbread)
13,99 €*
Release:1980 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
Recorded at the Lighthouse Café in Hermosa Beach, CA, on September 13, 1953, this is a historic recording for many reasons, and one of the earliest meetings of East and West Coast jazz artists. While Miles Davis and Chet Baker need no introduction, Harold Rumsey might. He was a West Coast jazz bassist who formed the Lighthouse All Stars in 1949, a long standing group that performed at the Hermosa Beach club every Sunday night for nearly a decade. Though he might not be a household name, his group featured such alumnus as Jimmy Giuffre, Shorty Rogers, Max Roach, Bud Shank, Sonny Criss, Hampton Hawes, Shelly Manne, and more. Featuring rousing renditions of “’Round Midnight”, “Night In Tunisia”, “At Last”, and the killer drum solo from Roach, “Drum Conversation”, this is a brilliant window into the 1950s LA scene, and Miles’ particular ability to fit into nearly any jazz setting with ease. Reissued on 180 gram vinyl with download code.

LP | 1970 | EU | Reissue (Cornbread)

Release:1970 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
Following the recordings in 1949 and 1950 that would comprise Birth Of The Cool and help create the sub-genre of Cool Jazz, Miles had already moved on to the next thing, because that's what an innovator does. By 1951 he was recording hard-bop of the highest order on a variety of formats, including 10" and 7". This LP compiles a number of those recordings into one 12" LP, and the fact that the entire record was recorded on one day, October 5, 1951, would be surprising if it weren't the one and only Miles Davis. Featuring a crack band that included Art Blakey, and Jackie McLean in his very first recording session, this is classic 50s Miles hard-bop of the highest order. Reissued on 180 gram LP with download code.

Newport Rebels
LP | 1960 | EU | Reissue (Cornbread)
13,99 €*
Release:1960 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
Led by Charles Mingus and Max Roach, this 1960 recording was made, in some regard, in protest. Growing increasingly annoyed by the booking policy of the Newport Jazz Festival, which he found to be too conservative and lacking in foresight, Mingus formed this group with the such future leaning artists as Eric Dolphy and Max Roach, and the vocalist Abbey Lincoln. Recorded over only two sessions at New York’s Nola Penthouse Studios, this Newport Rebels group put together a fine piece of post-bop that, despite its rather bitter beginnings, deserves to be more well known. Reissued on 180 gram vinyl with download code.

Screamin' Jay Hawkins
At Home With…
LP | 1958 | EU | Reissue (Cornbread)
13,99 €*
Release:1958 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves, Rock / Indie
By far one of the most outrageous performers of the early years of rock, prone to emerging from coffins on stage, with a flaming skull named Henry as his constant companion, Screamin' Jay was an insanely theatrical figure long before it was even remotely acceptable. His 1958 debut, At Home, featuring his legendary 'I Put A Spell On You,' along with surreal hits like 'Hong Kong,' 'Take Me Back To The Boot And Saddle,' or his wild-ass reinventions of old standards like 'I Love Paris' and 'Deep Purple' is a carefully arranged yet gritty, Ray Charles-gone-crazy styled, full band rhythm and blues masterpiece, filled with enough howls and groans to send chills down your spine. Reissued on 180 gram LP with download code.

Originally released in 1962, this compilation is the definitive collection of Wanda Jackson’s rocking, rockabilly sides. Featuring her finest singles, including "Fujiyama Mama," "Mean Mean Man," and "Hot Dog! That Made Him Mad," this is Wanda at her lascivious, snarling best. Often referred to as “The Queen Of Rockabilly” if ever there was a need to prove that title for Wanda Jackson, this compilation is Exhibit A. Reissued on 180 gram LP with download code and 4 bonus tracks.

Genre:Organic Grooves
Released in 1962, See See Rider is one of Baker's finest jump blues LPs, a killer collection of stomping tunes including the title track, a classic 12-bar blues originally recorded by Ma Rainey way back in the 1920s. Born in Chicago, LaVern Baker got her start in the vibrant south side blues scene of the post-war era, before moving on to New York City to record for the famed Atlantic Records, the home of the biggest stars in R&B of the time. This collection of singles is one of her finest sets of recordings and absolutely essential pre-soul R&B from one of the masters. Reissued on 180 gram LP + download card with 2 bonus tracks.

LP | EU | Reissue (Cornbread)

Release:EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
Abbey Lincoln was perhaps the most talented in a series of jazz singers to quickly follow in the footsteps of Billie Holiday. She released her debut album in 1957, and followed soon after with a series of hit jazz titles, in addition to singing on Max Roach’s landmark protest album, We Insist!, in 1960. Lincoln was also deeply involved in the civil rights movement, and her songs were often a reflection of that struggle. Abbey Is Blue is perhaps her most well known solo work and it’s reissued here on 180 gram vinyl with download code.

Known alternately as Good, Good, Twistin' With James Brown, Shout And Shimmy, and Excitement "Mr. Dynamite", and a myriad other titles, it doesn’t really matter what you call it, this is classic early James Brown recordings from the early 60s that are guaranteed to keep the dance party cooking. Nobody, absolutely nobody, was a bigger star or a more talented R&B artist in the 60s than James Brown and this album is stone cold proof of that. Reissued on 180 gram vinyl with download code.

A truly legendary release, the second ever album from the immortal Staple Singers, Will The Circle Be Unbroken? was originally released in 1961. Featuring Pop Staples’ instantly recognizable tremelo’d guitar, and the vocals of Mavis and co., this album might contain the definitive version of the title track, a gospel standard that dates back to 1907 and has been covered countless time, so that’s no short order. This is the group, along with the Soul Stirrers, to influence an entire generation of future gospel performers, and this LP is one of their absolute peaks.
