Impulse jazz LP's, early Soul albums ...

Many thanks for the rather overwhelming response to last week's Big Update. We worked from early morning to around 8.30 pm when we left to see Carl Hedberg and Jens Chreisti play wonderful music in a bar. We watched the last orders coming in while sipping beer and listening to killer music, so it was a nice end to the Big Update. We set a new record for the amount of orders last Friday with 141 orders. We didn't break record moneywise but it was still a fine response. 
We can't top that selection this week but we have put out around 20 Impulse records, fine original 60's-early 70's soul LP's by Intruders, Irma Thomas, Kelly Brothers, Garnet Mimms plus a nice mix of some hip hop like Looptroop, King Geedorah, disco 12's, soul 45's (don't miss George Smallwood "You know I love you"), amazing reggae 45's by Johnnie Osbourne "Right right time" and "Who really cares". Don't miss the killer compilation "Soul spectrum" from Jazzman and Fryer as well.

For all records added this week look here:

Very rare LP with Larry Nozero on the always popular Tribe-label. Listen to "La margarita" or the version of Eddie Russ' "Zaius".

Some strong 45s too like Continental Showstoppers, Sideshow, Robert Moore, Harvey & the Phenomenals, disco 12s like Vance & Suzzanne, Needa, Dunn Pearson, China Burton. 

Jazz-wise there's some real standout Euro jazz from Carsten Meinert, Nathan Davis, Fitz Gore, Dick Morrisey and the ultra rare Arac Constellation (Bertil Strandberg) EP, some heavy Blue Notes (Hank Mobley, Dizzy Reece, Paul Chambers and more), free jazz from Finnerud Trio, Bengt Nordström and Milford Graves and many, many more.
