LP, Vinyl record album (Blues)
Rough Trade (UK), 1985. Sealed
A hauntingly beautiful record from the later years of the British post-punk scene – a nearly-lost gem that soundscapes together a variety of elements that include tinkling piano, field recordings, and some nice dark production touches!

1st Class
Matador, 2002. Used
It may not be the BeAllEndAll that the Matador hype machine is trying to cook up, but Large Professor's waaaay too long in the making first LP (first to be officially released, anyway) is a very solid effort, and a strong, raw head bumper all the way through. Nothing fancy, just tried and true hip ... CD (Hip Hop)
Martians Come Back!
Atlantic (Japan), 1955. Used
One of Shorty Rogers' greatest records – and a very nice set of tight west coast arrangements that really shows off the Rogers sense of sparkle and swing – a vibe that definitely comes through in the famous cover image too! Shorty wrote nearly all of the tracks, and the writing's a ... CD (Jazz)
Stax, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used
The Soul Children were a wonderful Memphis vocal group – with a two parts female/two parts male vocal style that just sounded incredible. All the members of the group were great singers, hand-picked by Isaac Hayes and David Porter, and the overall sound was a mixture of rootsy southern soul, ... CD (Soul)
Precious Moment
Kind Of Blue, 2005. Used
Eddie Henderson's one of those players who's only grown better and better over the years – first starting out to great fame as a Miles-esque trumpeter working with electric grooves in the 70s – then moving onto really transform and grow as a musician over decades' worth of lesser-publici ... CD (Jazz)
Interscope, 2006. Used
Warmly folksy soul from Ayo – a singer who's spent a fair bit of time bumping around the world in the past decade or so – and here shows the range of influences to match! Many numbers have Ayo playing acoustic guitar underneath her vocals – in a way that echoes older African ... CD (Neo Soul)
Celeste (Japan), Early 70s. Used
Groovy work from one of the most overlooked sound library labels of the 70s – the mighty Sylvester, home to some great French jazz musicians and some very lovely tunes! The set's a mixture of skittish jazz dance numbers, gentle bossa groovers, and some other great tracks that have a feel ... CD (Sound Library)

Torturing The Saxophone
Corbett vs. Dempsey, 2014. New Copy
Mats Gustafsson tortures the saxophone – but tortures it beautifully, too – in this wonderful set of solo tracks that mix tenor and live electronics, baritone and music box, and some solo baritone moments too! The title's a reference to a hilarious letter sent to Mats by Robert Crumb ... CD (Jazz)
Intergalactic Beings
FPE, 2014. New Copy
Mindblowing sounds from Chicago flute player Nicole Mitchell – a set of work inspired by the science fiction writings of Octavia Butler – with a striking style to match! Although the music has some arch qualities that live up to the darkness of Butler's writings, the performance here ... CD (Jazz)

Amazing images from the universe of Sun Ra – a mixture of rare photographs and mural images painted by Aye Aton – sometime percussionist with the Arkestra, and a heck of a great painter too! The book begins with these stunning full color photographs of Ra on the set of Space Is The ... Book (Books)
Chronicles/Funk Lab, Early 70s. Used
Nice set of funky tracks from 70s films – and one that includes a few hits, and a few other hard to find tracks. This isn't going to be the be-all and end-all of blacksploitation tracks, but the set's a nice general sampler, with a dozen good tracks from the 70s. Titles include "Are ... CD (Funky Compilations)
Evidence, 1994. Used
CD (Jazz)
Love Call
Blue Note, 1968. Used
One of the two quartet sessions that Ornette cut for Blue Note in the late 60's – and tight mature work like the New York Is Now sides, recorded in the company of Dewey Redman and the Coltrane rhythm section of Jimmy Garrison and Elvin Jones, which offers a contrasting perspective to most of ...

Heat Is On
T Neck, 1975. Used
A great mix of heavy funk and sweeter ballads from the Isley Brothers – and a record that's filled with two-part tracks that really let them stretch out and groove! The tunes have a bit more bass and keyboards than before – an approach that's even more electric than Isley funk of a few ... CD (Soul)
WEA (France), 2002. Used
Radikal soul from the Philly Underground – a full album of work by Vikter Duplaix, one of the most important Philly talents of recent years, finally stepping out in his own set!

Epic (Japan), 1974. Used
Minnie Riperton's first album for Epic – and the record that broke her from a hip Chicago underground artist into one of the seventies' biggest soul divas! The record moves past the baroque soul of Minnie's early years with Rotary Connection and Charles Stepney – and hits a mix of ... CD (Soul)
Roberta Flack & Donny Hathaway
Atlantic, 1972. Used
An amazing record from the team of Flack & Hathaway – one of the hippest duos in soul! Individually, each had taken the music to new heights and new audiences, through the use of jazzy phrasing and sophisticated lyrics, while never selling out in the way that earlier pop soul acts had ... CD (Soul)
All The Great Hits
Motown, 1970s/Early 80s. Used
CD (Soul)
Delicious Vinyl, 1993. Used
A deep, slowly rolling, jazzy slab o' genius from the Pharcyde – an abstract classic that's ripped off by lesser MCs and producers to this day! Like much of the Bizarre Ride II LP, "Otha Fish" is a fairly expansive groover, with rolling funky drums, thumping bass and jazzy samplage. ... CD (Hip Hop)
Hard To Earn
EMI, 1994. Used
At least as good as Step In The Arena. Double length CD with the classic "DWYK" featuring Nice & Smooth, just about our favorite Gang Starr track, "Speak Ya Clout" featuring Jeru and Lil Dap, "Take It Personal", "Mass Appeal", and more of the amazing ... CD (Hip Hop)
BBE (UK), 1970s. Used
Bury your love deep, deep down with ?uestlove – a soundtrack compilation of strangely sweet soul misery – and the superior sequel to the Babies Makin' Babies set on BBE!

Argo/Chess, 1964. Used
Searing stuff – easily one of Etta James' greatest albums! The set is a non-stop jam, recorded live at the New Era Club in Nashville before a small and screaming crowd – a perfect performance all the way through, one that showcases Etta as she rarely sounded on vinyl during the 1960s. ... CD (Soul)
Dirty Harriet
Elektra, 2000. Used

Welcome To the Pleasuredome
ZTT/Island, 1984. Used
Arguably one of the greatest concept albums of the 80s – and the only really strong full length album cut by Frankie Goes To Hollywood! At the time of the set, the group was riding high on the success and controversy of their singles "Relax" and "Two Tribes" – but ... CD (Soul)
NPG, 1996. Used 3CD
