A killer little set that's as heavy as it sounds from the title – a wealth of rare material pulled from the studio of Detroit producer Dave Hamilton – a good deal of it previously unreleased! Hearing this set is like finding a pile of rare 45s stuffed in the back corner of a long-lost record shop – because although much of the work was never issued, it crackles with the intensity of the best funky 45s – lots of funky drums, offbeat guitar, and raspy soul vocals – produced with a real edge to all the work, so that all of the hardest elements of the tunes really come through in the mix! The work that was issued here came out on the TCB, Tayster, and New Day labels – and although the artists are often not well known, the work's got a really unified feel – thanks to the funky vision of Dave Hamilton. CD features 20 tracks in all – including "Brand New Girl (part 1)", "You're Wasting My Time (parts 1 & 2)", and "I Got Some (parts 1 & 2)" by Billy Garner; "The Grown Folks Thing" by OC Tolbert, "Party Time" by James Carpenter, "Going To The Moon" by Dave Hamilton, "Funky Trip" by Johnny Walker, "The Devil Is Gonna Get You" by The Future Kind, "Just A Mistake" by The Barrino Brothers, "Hunchin" by Gip Roberts, "Bump With Me" by The Webb People, "Sweet Thing (part 1)" by Bobby Dee, and "Can You Dig It" by Chico & Buddy. © 1996-2011, Dusty Groove America, Inc.

This unlikely collaboration with R&B star Bobby Womack is surprisingly successful as an instrumental smooth-jazz guitar session. Womack uncharacteristically takes no vocals, and proves himself a very competent and sympathetic rhythm guitarist. This album feature's Womack's original recording of his composition "Breezin'", which was a smash crossover hit for George Benson. Szabo interprets the melody in his staccato voice, his approach more restrained than Benson's, but captivating in it's own way. "Amazon" has a dark tropical feel. Wolfgang Melz plays solid yet interesting basslines, and his co-composition "Fingers" provides another fine vehicle for extended guitar improvisation. The finale, "I Remember When" features a well-arranged string section that serves as a fine foil for Szabo's take on the country-style melody. - J. Levinson, Amazon.com

As a drummer, Chico Hamilton probably never got the full recognition he deserved. However, his ability to recognize and hire young talent kept him in the limelight throughout much of the 1950s and '60s. THE DEALER is a good example of Hamilton's musical vision. The most significant aspect of this release is the introduction of a 23-year-old Larry Coryell, who went on to become one of the foremost jazz guitarists in the world.

THE DEALER finds its groove on the fourth track, "Baby, You Know," which is a beautiful, laidback ballad. On this tune, Coryell plays with all the heart and soul of a seasoned bluesman. He also intersperses Wes Montgomery-like bop lines in between the saxophone melody, proving that he's more than just a blues enthusiast. Coryell's own composition "Larry of Arabia" is another slow blues that highlights the fiery young guitarist. Overall, Coryell's creative mix of blues and bebop complements Hamilton's understated drumming, as well as alto player Arnie Lawrence's hard-bop style. This is definitely a fascinating listen, and one of Hamilton's finest albums.
