A landmark bit of avant prog psych from the American underground of the late 60s – the astral mindblower that is God Bless The Red Krayola & All Who Sail It! This second album is the group's early masterpiece – a brilliant, jarring psychedelic work of genius! It's got the ... (Rock) read moreCD
A landmark album – not only for Freddie Redd, but for Jackie McLean, who's the real star of the session! In the early 60s, both Freddie and Jackie played together in a hip New York play called The Connection – working as a part of a live jazz band who were hanging out in an apartment, ...

A real corker from Freddie Redd – and never issued at the time! Despite the fact that Freddie was part of one of the greatest sessions ever on Blue Note – the soundtrack to The Connection, done with Jackie McLean – he rarely got the chance to record more for the label, which is ... (Jazz) read moreCD
An exquisite bit of modernist hardbop – recorded by Freddie Redd with the same sort of sound that he brought to the classic Connection recording, also done for Blue Note! As with that session, Redd is working here with alto from a young Jackie McLean's on alto sax – really at the top ... (Jazz) read moreCD
A very important crossover soul album – a huge hit for Otis Redding that was released after his tragic death in December 1967 – but it's also hard to say if it would have had the impact it did had Redding not passed while the LP was still in production. In a way, the record sort of set ... (Soul) read moreCD
A massive combination of two famous live moments from Otis Redding – both recorded in March of 1967, both overseas at concerts in Paris and London! The set's nicely divided up – so that the first half features London, the second Paris – but both with a really unified feel, given ... (Soul) read moreCD
Beautiful! London-based, West Indies-born trumpeter Dizzy Reece was one of the most fantastic trumpet talents of the late 50s and early 60s – as you'll clearly hear on this previously unreleased session recorded by Blue Note in 1960. Reece had an incredible tone that managed to be very ... (Jazz) read moreCD

Wonderfully romping grooves from one of Motown's first great groups – a stunning set of tracks that really put The Vandellas on the map!

Rev's still as strange as ever – and his madness hasn't diminished a bit since his early days in Suicide!

Crackling live energy from Buddy Rich – recorded at Ronnie Scott's nightclub in London, and with a sound that recalls some of Buddy's best from the 60s!

$9.99Just Sold Out!
Very heady sounds from this hip French trio – one who go further than even the usual avant piano combo, by using a prepared version of the instrument for part of the set! Eve Risser handles the keys – and the piano is both standard, although played with very unusual inflections, and ... (Jazz) read moreCD
A classic example of the power of the male vocalist in 70s New York Latin – as Ismael Rivera represents himself as a simple working class Puerto Rican on the front and back covers of the record, but steps out with a tremendous sense of majesty on his vocals for the set! The instrumentation ... (Latin) read moreCD
One of the greatest modern moments on Blue Note – ever!

If this is an appetizer, we can't wait until the full meal! Eric Roberson initially put this set together to whet people's appetite for his next album – which is still a long way off – but in doing so, he realized that he had way more tracks than he thought for the original EP, and he ...

A heavily reworked version of Eric Roberson's massive Vault album – one of our favorite new soul releases of the past few years!

A pretty amazing and surprisingly lovely LP from theremin player Clara Rockmore – accompanied on piano by Nadia Reisenberg – and a record that really strips away the sci fi futurist stereotype of the theremin!

Ostensibly another West Side Story pop ripoff album, this is actually a strong album of Latin tracks that uses the popularity of the musical to draw a parallel with the "west side" grooves of the New York Latin scene.
