Bruce HaackFarad Bruce Haack – The Electric Voice ... CD
Stones Throw, 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy .... $7.99 16.98
Amazing electric grooves from synth innovator Bruce Haack – whose pioneering use of analog synths and vocoder vocals in the service of great, if far out songcraft was pretty much unrivaled in the 70s and into the early 80s – the period in which this excellent compilation on Stones Throw highlights! Haack's earlier successes were children's music in the 60s, and one of the coolest aspects of his 70s recordings was how that somewhat bright-eyed and innocent sing-song-y approached moved into more surrealist, weirder realms on albums like Electric Lucifer, that album's lesser known, still quite brilliant sequel, and albums like Haackula and Bite. Choice cuts from those albums as well as rare singles are rounded up for Stones Throw's impeccably curated overview. The electric voice and synth errata brings an otherworldly vibe to catchy songs – and Haack's use of the vocoder was followed by so many others who would become household names, from Kraftwerk to Pink Floyd. Amazing stuff! 16 tracks in all: "Electric To Me Turn", "Incantation", "Rain Of Earth", "Ancient Mariner", "Man Kind", "Rita", "Lie Back", "Snow Job"m "The King", "Party Machine" and more. CD

New Henry ManciniCop Show Themes ... LP
RCA, 1976. Used .... Out Of Stock
One of the funkiest albums ever from Henry Mancini – a brilliant reworking of hit 70s cop show themes, put together with a really jazzy groove! The group's a big one – filled with hip players who include Clare Fischer on organ, Artie Kane on electric piano and harpsichord, Don Menza on tenor, Lee Ritenour on guitar – all instruments that are used strongly to help kick things nicely on the set, with a vibe that's right up there with the best funky 70s soundtracks. Harvey Mason is on drums, bringing up the bottom a bit more than usual for Mancini – and the choice of material really makes the record cook – with tracks that include "Kojak", "SWAT", "Police Woman", "Rockford Files", "Hawaii Five O", "Streets Of San Francisco", "Bumper's Theme", and "Baretta's Theme". LP, Vinyl record album

Martini KingsPalm Springs Serenade (with download) (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Dionysus, 2012. New Copy .... $11.99 16.99
The Martini Kings take things back to the glory days of lounge music with this sweet little set – but also manage to bring in a bit more of a jazz approach than you might expect! The whole thing's got a great retro vibe – as you'd expect from the cover – and the record is honestly one that could easily be some overlooked gem from the late 50s or early 60s, from the song choices right down to the production! There's a surprising lack of hoke or gimmick at all – and the core sounds of the group come from the vibes and percussion of Frank Marisco and the bass of Tony Marisco – sweetly mixed with a shifting blend of guitar, flute, and more – including some wonderful guest vocals from Buddy Greco. Titles include "So Danco Samba", "Swingin Shepherd Blues", "Lost In Paradise", "Patricia", "Rumble", "Return To Moorea", and "Cuchy Frito Man". LP, Vinyl record album
(Super-heavy vinyl – and a bonus download too!)
