Nagaoka (Japan), New Copy ... $4.99
A cool open-top plastic sleeve for storing your CDs! This one works like the LP and 45 sleeves we stock – in that the plastic hugs your CD package on the front and back, and on the sides and bottom – but the top is open, so you can slide out the jewel case for easy access when listening! There's no flap at all to get in the way – and the sleeves are great if you store your CDs on shelves vertically, and don't like the outside cases to get scratched up. This version fits a range of multi-disc packages – including older-styled jewel cases that handle 2 to 4 CDs, and most of the contemporary larger slipcover styled CD packages too. Record Care

Wes MontgomeryIncredible Jazz Guitar Of Wes Montgomery (20 bit remaster) ... CD
Riverside, 1960. Used ... $6.99
They're not kidding with the title of this one – because although the record was only Wes Montgomery's second album as a leader, he was already making plenty of waves with the sound of his guitar! The session lines Wes up with the very tight rhythm team of Tommy Flanagan on piano, Percy Heath on bass, and Albert Heath on drums – all of whom lay back and mostly let Wes take center stage – sparkling on a number of original tunes that include "West Coast Blues", "Mister Walker", and "D Natural Blues". Other tracks include a great fast take on Sonny Rollins' "Airegin", plus "In Your Own Sweet Way" and "Polka Dots & Moonbeams". CD

Universal (Brazil), 1960s/1970s. Used 2 CDs ... $19.99
A wonderful 2CD set of rare work from Elis Regina – perfect for the fan who has everything! At this point, just about all of Elis' wonderful 60s and 70s albums for Philips have been issued on CD – but this package goes further than the albums, to include a wealth of rare material from singles, eps, compilations, and other hard to find (and out of print!) sources. The result is a stellar package of tracks – as great as any other Elis Regina albums from the time, and possibly even more important, as many of these tunes are getting their first proper release in years, wrapped together in a lovely package with some great notes as well! Titles include "Vexamao" and "Perdao Nao Tem" by Pele & Elis, "Noite Dos Mascarados" by Elis and Chico Buarque, "Upa Neguinho" performed with the Bossa Jazz Trio, "Noite Dos Mascarados" by Elis & Pierre Barouh, and the tracks "Ye Mele", "Um Novo Rumo", "Jogo De Roda", "Canto Triste", "O Cantador", "Saveiros", "Lapinha", "Deixa", "Osanah", "A Fia De Chico Brito", "Entrudo", and "Alo Alo Tai Carmen Miranda".

PTG (Netherlands), Early 80s. New Copy ... $13.99
A sweet set of grooves from this always-great series – served up with a special focus on the kinds of snapping sounds that were making the scene in the early 80s! Nearly all the tracks on the set were recorded in 1983, and capture a special point in funky soul – a time when the music was really moving past familiar modes from the disco years, and coming across with a leaner, meaner groove that's plenty heavy on sweet beats and keyboards! Titles include "One Mind Two Hearts" by Paradise, "Mr Business" by Tom Browne, "A Man Like You" by Lemelle, "You've Gotta Believe" by Lovebug Starski, "Real Love" by Ritchie Family, "Give Me What I Want" by Bon Rock, "Be With You Tonight" by Total Contrast, "Say Something Love" by Kashif, and "I Want Your Love Back" by Celena Duncan.

Buda (France), 2005. Used 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An amazingly great set from Either/Orchestra – easily their finest album ever, and a wicked batch of Ethiopian funk! The set's a very faithful homage to the best Ethiopian styles of the 70s – with lots of echoes of the generation of Mulatu, who also makes a guest appearance himself on the album! Bits of Afro Funk come into play with more complicated jazz – making for a really unique approach to the music that stays faithful to its roots, but also somehow extrapolates the best elements and pulls them even more strongly forward. Features percussion by Mulatu, tenor sax by Getachew Mekurya, and vocals by Bahta Gebre-Heywet, Michael Belayneh, and Tsendia Gebre-Marqos. 2CD set includes the tracks "Soul Tezeta", "Amlak Abet Abet", "Muziqawi Silt", "Yezemed Yebada", "Eyeye", "Embi Ba", "Shellela", "Bati", "Feger Aydelem Wey", and "Keset Eswa Betcha". Almost a tribute to the sound of the Ethiopiques series – played with some of its key stars from older years! CD

It's just beautiful stuff, with lots of tasty harmony soul tracks with production by Van McCoy, who also wrote and arranged the bulk of the material. The vocals are great and the strings soar pretty grandly, without compromising the group soul backdrop. Includes the big title hit, of course, plus "Gotta Keep Movin", "For You", "Sweet Magic", "This Is My Dream World", and "How Can You Say You're Leavin". LP, Vinyl record album

There's plenty of basslines, beats, and keyboards in the mix – and most numbers are nice and lean, with a very focused sound. Titles include "Weekend" by Class Action, "Breakin (US club mix)" by Ollie & Jerry, "If You Should Ever Be Lonely (club mix)" by Val Young, "Work That Sucker To Death" by Xavier, "Takes A Little Time (Bandito mix)" by Total Contrast, "Just The Way You Like It" by SOS Band, "Circles" by Atlantic Starr, "Hold On To What You've Got" by Evelyn Champagne King, "Shiver" by George Benson, "Sucker For Candy (hot candy kiss mix)" by Rozlyn Sorrell, "Serious" by Donna Allen, and "Can I" by Cashmere.

Finders Keepers (UK), 1970s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Wonderfully wild music from the under-tapped Welsh scene of the 70s – a hotbed of some of the most amazing music we've ever heard, even though much of it was only ever issued on very tiny labels! This second volume of Welsh Rare Beat almost outdoes the brilliance of the first – and it seems to dig even deeper into the underground scene of Wales to come up with tunes that range from subtly funky to slinkily gentle – all served up with perfect sound throughout, and supported with more than enough notes to help you navigate this magical musical maze! Most lyrics aren't in English, but that further supports the uniqueness of this music – and although there's definitely elements here that match some of the folk funk coming out of England or the US at the time, much of the tunes really have their own, odd feel overall. Titles include "Cymylau" by Sidan, "Rosi" by Edward H Dafis, "Cariad Cyntaf" by Eleri Llwyd, "Ffair Ynys Hir" by Y Diliau 72, "Can O Dristwch" by Heather Jones, "Tocyn" by Bran, "Gwr Boheddig" by Chwys, and "Yr Wylan" by Bara Menyn.

Outta Sight (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sweet 70s grooves, and a few key contemporary cuts too – a really wonderful set that's full of overlooked modern soul gems and a great mix of mellow groovers! The package really serves up some of our favorite sounds from the 70s – tracks that are upbeat, yet never uptempo – and find a way of stepping along a midtempo groove that leaves plenty of room for the vocalist to really soar in the lead – hitting these rich, righteous lines that sparkle strongly throughout! The set list is superb, and features even a few surprises to our ears long-trained on modern soul – and tracks include "There I Go" by The Notations, "I Hate Hate" by Razzy, "Pour Your Little Heart Out" by The Drifters, "Daylight" by Bobby Womack, "Got To Find Ms Right" by Buddy Miles, "Tripping Out (Featurecast 2013 re-edit)" by Curtis Mayfield, "What Do You See In Her" by Inell Young, "You Made A Believer Out Of Me" by Betty Lavette, "This Side Of Heaven" by Gavin Christopher, "Spoiled Like A Baby" by Mystique, "If You Really Need A Friend" by Bobby Foster, "Smoothie Pie" by Sky Hi, and "I Don't Know" by Glen Anthony Henry.

Moody magic from the great John Barry – a little-heard soundtrack for a late 60s Michael Caine thriller!

Much of the music is period-based, but still nicely jazzy and swinging – not as all out groovy as Barry's Bond work, but with some nice orchestral jazz touches that are hipper than you'd expect from Bart. Titles include "Kate's Blues", "Barney's Blues", "No More", "AT Last", "Chicken Delhi Cold", and "Serenade In Blue". LP, Vinyl record album

The group are really maturing here – and the mix of Smile-era songs and some of their later ones is really great – a wonderful follow-up to material explored on Friends, and a great hint at the genius to come on Sunflower. The album's essential listening if you dig post-Pet Sounds Beach Boys – especially before they hit their mix of nostalgia and indulgence in the 70s – and titles include the sublime "Cabinessence", plus "Do It Again", "I Can Hear Music", "Be With Me", "All I Want To Do", "I Want To Sleep", and "The Nearest Faraway Place".

Delicious Vinyl/Rhino, 1990s/Early 2000s. Used ... $7.99
15 tracks from one of the best jazz funk bands of the past 25 years! The Brand New Heavies have a wonderful sound that mixes 70s jazz funk with a tight modern soul groove – never sleepy, and infused with all the best energy of older groups. They first sprung into being in the early days of the London acid jazz scene of the late 80s – but over the next few years, they became one of the best soul acts in the world, breaking out of the underground, and storming the US charts with classics like "Dream On Dreamer", "Stay This Way", and "Never Stop". All those cuts are on this tasty "best of" set – as are numbers from their hip hop experiments, including "Soul Flower" with The Pharcyde, "Bonafide Funk" with Main Source, and remixes of "Sometimes" with Q-Tip and "Saturday Nite" with Mos Def. The set also features "Dream Come True '92", "Put The Funk Back In It", "Have A Good Time", "Bonafide", and "Finish What You Started", a new track with vocals by N'Dea Davenport! CD

Chocolate City, 1977. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Sublime second generation soul from Brenda & The Tabulations – a sweet set of Philly grooves, recorded at Sigma sound with help from Norman Harris, Bobby Eli, and John Davis! The album's every bit as groove-heavy as you'd expect from work by those dancefloor heavyweights – and the record's a great change from the earlier style of Brenda and the group – more positive and progressive, yet still with a few of the fragile ballads that first got them noticed! There's a great sense of class and poise to the record – a progression from the early years that's similar to that which many other Philly artists experienced with Gamble & Huff – almost more surprising here, given that sometimes a Casablanca record didn't come out with the same sort of care. Titles include "Superstar", "Home To Myself", "I Keep Coming Back For More", "Let's Go All The Way Down", "Leave Me Alone", and "Everybody's Fool". LP, Vinyl record album

The Black Jazz recordings of Doug Carn are always a revelation – some of the most powerful, progressive work on the American underground of the early 70s – music that got Carn into way more record collections than you might expect! The sound here is a perfect summation of Doug's early genius – his own work on organ and keyboards, never overdone and mixed perfectly with a righteous array of acoustic sounds from Rene McLean on alto and tenor and Olu Dara on trumpet – both players who soar to the skies on waves of energy begun by Carn! Wife Jean Carn sings on a number of tracks – with this heavenly style that's mighty righteous – every bit as soulful as her later work at Philly International, but in a very different way. The set includes Doug's great reading of "Naima" – plus other wonderful cuts that include "Power & Glory", "Feel Free", "Jihad", "Fatherhood", and "God is One". LP, Vinyl record album

The legendary Gene Chandler gets down, and gets down good – in this classic late 70s set of clubby numbers and upbeat groovers! The set's one of the best moments on the Chi-Soul series from producer Carl Davis – and features a nicely evolved version of earlier Chicago soul modes from Tom Tom 84 and Sonny Sanders – both of whom push an older Brunswick style into some smoother, more sophisticated modern soul territory! Chandler's vocals are wonderful, as always – and have a catchy snapping feel on the groovers, mixed with surprisingly deep soul on the few mellower moments. Titles include a remake of "Please Sunrise", plus "I'm The Travelin Kind", "Get Down", "Tomorrow I May Not Feel The Same", "Greatest Love Ever Known", and "What Now". LP, Vinyl record album

Wild stuff! White singer Wayne Cochran looks like he should be a rockabilly star – right down to his big ol' pompadour haircut – but this early album of his for Chess is actually a tight batch of groovers that holds a nice appeal to fans of late 60s funk! Cochran's got a raw Wilson Pickett-ish sound to his voice, and the CC Riders vamp behind him in a nice tight way that's similar to a lot of the mixed race groups backing up other southern soul stars from the time.

Dennis CoffeyAbsolutely The Best Of Dennis Coffey ... CD
Fuel 2000, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
Funky Dennis Coffey – classics from his years at Sussex and programmed with one funky instrumental jam after another – 20 tracks from one of the maddest, hardest grooving, most genre-bending figures from the 70s Detroit scene! There's a rawly rumbling underbelly to the material, funky drums and basslines that have been sample classics over the years, but the searing guitars and keyboards are just as cool. Some tracks have flutes and strings for a heavy soundtracky vibe, others keep it raw, and all of it is great. 20 tracks in all: "Ride Sally Ride", "Can You Feel It", "Chicano", "Taurus", "Scorpio", "Son Of Scorpio", "Capricorn's Thing", "Big City Funk", "Summer Time Girl", "Getting It On", "Wind Song", "Good Time Rhythm & Blues", "Theme From Enter The Dragon", "Love Song For Libra", "Garden Of The Moon" and more.

New John ColtraneGiant Steps ... LP
Atlantic, 1959. Very Good+ ... $34.99
A true giant step for John Coltrane – and one of the first albums to really showcase his talent as a writer – and his amazing ability for penning some of the most soulful, spiritual themes in jazz! Apart from the well-known title cut, the record's filled with other Coltrane classics – key early readings of "Naima", "Cousin Mary", "Mr PC", "Spiral", and "Syeeda's Song Flute" – all showing a new sense of timing, phrasing, and pacing in jazz – one that would go on to have a huge impact on players in the 70s generation! The group here is relatively straight – Tommy Flanagan or Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Art Taylor on drums – but the players have never sounded better, and really match Coltrane's sense of power and imagination on these legendary tracks!

A classic bit of jazzy fusion from Chick Corea and the legendary Return To Forever group that included Flora Purim and Airto! The sound of the album influenced a generation, and although the album was overlooked by groovers for years, partly due to its success, it still sounds surprisingly fresh – skipping along with an amazing mix of fusion, Brazilian rhythms, and free-thinking solos! The album's overflowing with great-grooving goodies – and titles include the great original version of "Captain Marvel", plus "Light As A Feather", "Spain", and "500 Miles High".

James CottonChicago Harp Showdown ... CD
Fuel 2000, Late 60s. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
Searing early solo sides from James Cotton – material recorded in the late 60s, at a time when Cotton was really finding his groove! James serves up plenty of the sharp harmonica lines promised in the title, over backings that show plenty of influence from 60s soul as well – that new punch that bluesmen of his generation were using to push out their sounds in a fresher hybrid of initial Chicago electric modes! The notes on the set are a bit spare on details for the sessions, and the work's got a nicely rough-edged quality that almost feels live at times – or at least "live in studio". Titles include "Dealing With The Devil", "Polly Put The Kettle On", "V8 Ford Blues", "Jelly Jelly", "Feelin Good", "I Need You So Bad", "It Ain't Right", "Off The Wall", "There Is Something On Your Mind", and "The Creeper".

Moody magic from Miles Davis and Gil Evans – one of the pair's most perfectly poised albums together, and a set with a slight bossa nova undercurrent! Evans' shimmering horn patterns are in fine form here – complicated, but never in cold and too-modern ways – just the right sort of backdrop for Miles' muted solo work – blow with a great sense of space and care throughout! There's almost a soundtrack sort of depth to the record, but the solos still keep the jazz element nicely in focus – and titles include "Summer Night", "Wait Till You See Her", "Aos Pes Da Cruz", "Song #1", "Song #2", "Corcovado", and "Once Upon A Summertime".

Bo Diddley20th Anniversary of Rock N Roll (with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/Made In Germany (Germany), 1976. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
A mad bit of music from the great Bo Diddley – recorded after his early 70s funk records on Chess – but with a similar genre-tripping style! The album's got this full-on fuzzy feel right from the start – put together by producer Ron Terry, who matches Diddley's wilder side with some surprising guest appearances from Alvin Lee and Elvin Bishop on guitar, Billy Joel on keyboards, Carmine Appice on drums, and Joe Cocker on vocals! Despite the presence of these rock heavyweights, the set's all Bo Diddley's own – without any of the more watered-down crossover aspects you might expect. There's a nice sharp edge on all numbers – really preserving the funky undercurrents – and titles include "Ride The Water", "Drag On", "Kill My Body", and "Not Fade Away" – plus the super-extended "Bo Diddley Jam", which runs for over 15 minutes, and brings together a host of older Diddley tunes in a funky megamix! CD also features three bonus tracks – "Mona", "Emily", and "You Can't Judge A Book" – all from a 1984 live set in Germany. CD

Chess, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Heavy funk from the legendary Bo Diddley – one of his amazing comeback albums from the early 70s for Chess, all of which are plenty darn great! For this set, Bo's traded in the scratchy guitar mode of his classic work for a sweeter, tighter funk-based sound – a groove that's supported strongly with electric studio arrangements from Wade Marcus – used here in very nice contrast to Diddley's rougher vocals and guitar! The style's got a bit more electric jazz touches than some of the other Chess blues funk records from the time – but the overall sound is still bound to please any funk fan – and titles include "Bite You", "Stop The Pusher", "You've Got a Lot Of Nerve", and the breakbeat classic "Hit Or Miss"!

20th Century/Kritzerland, 1962/1965. New Copy ... $19.99
Two different Jimmy Stewart comedy soundtracks from the 60s – both of them nice! First up is Dear Brigitte – an overlooked 1965 score by George Duning – done with a mix of the playful modes you'd expect from the story, and some of those great deeper dramatic touches that Duning used in more serious soundtracks – a really rich mixing of modes with a sound that's much stronger than we expected! Titles include "On To BBs", "The Captain", "Magical Moment", "Puzzled Cap'n", "Hey Dad", "Is It A Trick", and "She Sank". Next is an even groovier record – a rare non RCA Henry Mancini soundtrack from the early 60s – the score to Mr Hobbs Takes A Vacation, done with all the best mix of jazz and groovy elements we love in classic Mancini! Instrumentation mixes a key electric guitar melody with some lighter touches on woodwinds – really getting the most out of the melody with some shifts in timing and tone, juxtaposed with a few numbers that are even more playful! Titles include "Barn Swallow", "Something For Lauri", "Cream Puff", "Up His Nose", "A Month Off", and "Rudders & Sails". CD features 39 tracks in all – including 7 bonus tracks from the Mancini score! CD

Booker ErvinIn Between ... LP
Blue Note, 1968. Near Mint- ... $24.99
One of the last records that Booker Ervin ever recorded, and one of the best! There's a depth of tone and conception here that goes far beyond even Ervin's already-great albums for Prestige – a mix of modernism and soulful expression that really points the way towards jazz expression in the 70s – although sadly, Booker was to leave the planet before getting a chance to stretch out in that era. All 6 tracks on the album are originals – and they sparkle with the imagination found on some of the most top-shelf Blue Notes of the time – work by Lee Morgan, Hank Mobley, or Wayne Shorter – played by a group that includes the amazing Richard Williams on trumpet (almost worth the price of the record alone), Bobby Few on piano, Lenny McBrowne on drums, and the little-known Cevera Jefferies on bass. Loads of dark edges, searing solos, and plenty of free flights into the sky – on titles that include "The In Between", "Tyra", "The Muse", "Mour", "Sweet Pea", and "Largo". LP, Vinyl record album

Far Out Monster Disco OrchestaFar Out Monster Disco Orchesta (2014 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Far Out (UK), 2014. New Copy ... $24.99
A really wonderful project that was years in the making – a mix of American club and Brazilian elements – put together by a group that includes members of Azymuth and Banda Black Rio, as well as the legendary Arthur Verocai! Jose Roberto Bertrami's the strongest contributor here – and the music really echoes that great late 70s/early 80s point when the Azymuth fusion groove crossed over into tighter, funkier territory – coming off here with a sound that's got really universal appeal and a wickedly classic vibe overall – like some unusual cross-breeding of Brazilian grooves and Salsoul Records! Vocals are by Mia Mendes and Marcina Arnold, but the instrumentation is even better than the lyrics – filled with jazzy touches, blended with bits of strings, and perfectly produced all the way through. Really tremendous stuff – one of the freshest records we've heard from Far Out in years – with titles that include "Mystery", "Keep Believing", "Dead Dance", "The Last Carnival", "A Disco Supreme", "Vendetta", and "Don't Cha Know He's Alright".

One of the best records ever cut by this soulful Philly female trio! The album's one of the first on Salsoul's Gold Mind subsidiary – and it features sparkling club production by the Harris/Baker/Young team – a landmark force not only in Philly disco, but 70s female soul as well – as their backings for groups of this nature are always sensitive to the complexities of the vocals! The record's mostly uptempo – with plenty of soaring tracks that still retain the more soulful sound of the group's early work – and the songwriting's generally tight, a few notches above earlier albums on Warner – showing that their return to the indie fold was a very good move. Titles include the classic "Let No Man Put Asunder" – plus "Doctor Love", "Indian Giver", "Do Me Again", and a great version of Stevie Wonder's "Love Having You Around". LP, Vinyl record album

The name of the record echoes the first Friends From Rio session that launched Far Out almost two decades ago – and like that classic, this one's a collaborative effort between a range of Brazilian and British talents – served up in a style that bridges the gap between older bossa and more contemporary modes!

Jewel/Fuel 2000, 1969. New Copy ... $4.99 11.98
The heavy bag here is a bluesy one – as Lowell Fullsom's working in territory that's got a lot of rootsy, almost southern blues in the mix – but which still cracks out at times with his hipper, more funk-tuned groove! There's a few tracks on here that hearken towards the "Tramp" groove from his Kent years – like "Lady In The Rain" and "Sleeper" – both of which have a nicely funky undercurrent and vamping guitar that really snaps along with the rhythm. Other numbers have a straighter blues feel, but one that still has a sinister approach that goes way past cliches for the college crowd – showing Lowell to be firmly in charge, no matter what the setting. Tracks include "Sleeper", "Lady In The Rain", "Man Of Motion", "Why Don't We Do It In The Road", "Look At You Baby", "Trouble Everywhere", and "This Feeling".

Jef GilsonJef Gilson Et Malagasy (4CD set) (2014 Record Store Day Release) ... CD
Jazzman (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 4CD ... $24.99
An amazing blend of jazz and global elements – and some of the most exciting material ever from French jazzman Jef Gilson! Gilson was a modernist right from the start – an artist whose piano work of the 60s was on a par with Martial Solal, and who was already beginning to branch out by the end of the decade into a range of unusual projects! The material here has Jef really coming into his own – exploring the sounds and styles of Madagascar with his Malagasy group – one of the most important cross-cultural acts on the European scene of the 70s – with a power and presence that's only being fully appreciated today. This beautiful set brings together four rare albums by Gilson and the group – originally issued on his own Palm Records label, and lovingly repackaged by Jazzman with full notes on the music in both French and English. The style is quite unique – sometimes electrified a bit on tracks that feature guitar and Gilson on Fender Rhodes – sometimes more acoustic and organic when the percussion takes over a bit – and always with these wonderful reed passages that reach out with lots of spiritual energy, and tones that rival the best of the post-Coltrane generation in the US. Different albums include Malagasy/Gilson, Madagascar Now, Malagasy At Newport-Paris, and Les Touches Noires – the last of which features a number of unissued or rare tracks by the group. Really wonderful stuff – and work we'd put up there with the best MPS Jazz Meets World recordings, or 70s treasures by Mulatu, or some of Lloyd Miller's best! CD

Titles include "Doing As The Romans Did", "All I Have To Do Is Take A Bite of Your Apple?", "Tell Me More About That Volcano", and "Our Man Flint". LP, Vinyl record album

Goldsmith's already working here with a full palette of colors – and Lionel Newman conducts the music with an added richness that seems to bring out all of his long experience on big budget epics, yet deliver the end results with the more subtle, compressed modes that make Goldsmith one of the more mature composers of the 60s. Horns shimmer with this great sense of restraint – almost painting colors in sound – and given the setting of the film, there's some slight exotic hints in a few instrumental passages as well.

TNT Productions (Germany), Late 80s/1990s/2000s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $6.99
A great collection of work from Grand Slam – a German funk combo who were serving up a classic take on American sounds long before the Daptone and Soul Fire generation! These guys are equally influenced by James Brown and George Clinton – especially the latter, given the bass-heavy riffs the group use in their music – and the number of times they get some help from P-Funk alumnus Gary Mudbone Cooper on some of these cuts! The vibe is more late 70s ensemble funk than gritty funky 45 modes – but Grand Slam definitely get their groove right – and have some mighty tight instrumentation to live up to their inspirations. 2CD set brings together a lot of work from the group's first 25 years in music – including some rare tracks, previously unreleased numbers, and a few cuts on CD for the first time ever. Titles include "Goin Out (orig demo)", "Da Rain", "Perfect Day", "Rock My World", "Get Your Own Thing (orig demo)", "Light My Fire", "If I Had", "U Blind", "Hunk/Fop", "Real XTC", and "Manik Botanik".

New Al GreenGreen Is Blues ... LP
Hi Records, 1972. Very Good+ ... $11.99
Well, we don't know if we'd say that Al Green is blues – because he's still singing in his wonderfully sweet Memphis soul style – but this album definitely has a sound that gives a nod to the classic bluesy soul that inspired Al's work in the years before he put things together with his undeniable magic! Apart from originals like "Get Back Baby" and "Tomorrow's Dream", Al covers some nice classics like "The Letter", "Summertime", "I Stand Accused", and "Talk To Me". LP, Vinyl record album

GulaabRitt Durch Den Hades ... LP
Merlins Nose (Germany), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
A very cool record that's every bit as compelling as its cover – an unusual late 70s session from a German guitarist who spent frequent time in Nepal – where he clearly absorbed some of the hipper elements of the higher altitudes! The record mixes Gulaab's acoustic guitar with lots of cool processing and electronic effects – in a way that makes things a lot more spacey than folksy – but till with an airy, open feel throughout. The whole thing's almost like a krautrock set with an acoustic heart – and the instrumental tracks leave plenty of room for Gulaab's compelling phrasing to really shine through. Titles include "Die Zeit", "Machtkampf", "Bruder Des Windes", "Ritt Durch Den Hades", "Heimkehr", "Silberstern", and "Ikaros". LP, Vinyl record album

Buck HammerDiscovery Of Buck Hammer ... LP
Hanover, Late 50s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Pretty darn strange one, and an album that unearths the talent of supposed Alabama boogie-woogie pianist Buck Hammer – who is actually Steve Allen, playing under a different name! The liner notes claim that Hammer was a legendary player in the mid 20th century, but due to reasons only he could explain, he almost never left his hometown of Glen Springs, Alabama. The session as even explained as being one of Hammer's few trips from his home town, to Nashville in 1956, where he cut the sides that would become this album. This rare Hanover release comes with a beautiful pen and ink drawing on the cover of Hammer in action – with a David Stone Martin-esque drawing that adds to the fake "authenticity" of the album. (Hey, it had us fooled – until a customer wrote to tell us the real story!) Titles include loads of originals like "Fink's Mules", "Blue's Blues", "Golly Gee Boogie", and "Jungle Boogie". LP, Vinyl record album
(In really nice shape! Cover has some light wear.)

Leigh Harline/Buddy BregmanVisit To A Small Planet/Delicate Delinquent ... CD
20th Century/Kritzerland, 1957/1960. New Copy ... $19.99
Two Jerry Lewis soundtracks – back to back on a single CD! First up is the very cool Visit To A Small Planet from 1960 – a Jerry Lewis sci-fi flick, done with a cool mix of sprightly themes and spacey touches. There's a few nice theremin moments, mixed with these nice orchestral passages that use strings and woodwinds to create some other-worldly elements inflected with more comedic styles overall. Titles include "Desdemona's Lament", "Arrival On Earth", "To Earth", "Crazy Driver", and "Tear Gas/Conclusion". The Delicate Delinquent is a urban-themed film, scored with lots of nice jazzy touches by Buddy Bregman – a composer who knows how to perfectly balance swing and sentiment, goofball energy and some of the more earnest passages that come out in the narrative. Titles include "The Cop", "A Near Miss", "The Fight", "It's A Boy", "The Bout", and "Bridge To Street/Record Shop". CD

Wilbert HarrisonKansas City – Greatest Hits & Rarities ... CD
Fuel 2000, Early 60s. New Copy ... $11.99
A few hits and a lot more rarities from the legendary Wilbert Harrison – the singer best known for his seminal hit "Kansas City", but an artist with a lot more to offer as well! This overstuffed collection brings together 25 tracks from Harrison's years on Bobby Robinson's Fire & Fury Record labels – the place whe he cut that initial hit, but then went onto recorded a great legacy of bluesy soul and R&B stormers featured in this set! The recording quality is often a bit more stripped-down than other New York productions of the period – giving a rough indie feel to the records that really works well with Harrison's bold, soaring vocals. Wild Jimmy Spruill plays some mighty mean guitar on a number of the tracks here too – with that twangy, spacey sound of his – and titles include "1960", "Drafted", "New York World's Fair", "Cold Cold Heart", "Going To The River", "Pretty Little Women", "The Horse", "Listen My Darling", and "Don't Wreck My Life" – plus the hits "Kansas City", "Ain't That A Shame", and "Let's Stick Together".

Leon HaywoodCome And Get Yourself Some ... LP
20th Century, 1975. Near Mint- ... $24.99
Leon Haywood's best album from the 70s! After working as a keyboardist and sometimes vocalist for a number of years – making some strong and some tentative entries into the soul genre – Leon really exploded with this album, an electric funk classic that gave the world his fantastic "I Wanna Do Something Freaky To You" (a track that had new life years later when Dr Dre sampled it to great fame.) The rest of the record holds up nicely, too – and is a mix of smooth soul and wicked funk, with tracks that include "Consider the Source", "Who You Been Giving It Up To", and "This Feeling's Rated Extra". Classic! LP, Vinyl record album

Leon HaywoodKeep It In The Family ... LP
20th Century, 1974. Very Good+ ... $7.99
Leon's moving from the rawer soul of his earlier days, but he still hasn't hit the sly LA funk sound of his "Freaky To You" years. The record's a good batch of tracks that show the LA sound of the 60s turning into the smooth slinky one of the 70s – and Gene Page is at hand to handle the arrangements and musical backing for Leon, who produced the record himself. Tracks include "Keep It In The Family", "Long As There's You (I Got Love)", "BMF Beautiful", and "When It Comes Down On You In The Middle Of The Night". LP, Vinyl record album
