Nagaoka (Japan), New Copy .... $4.99
A very cool inner sleeve for CDs – perfect for storing them in LP-styled covers! The clear plastic sleeves are similar to the ones you get in Japanese Paper Sleeve packages – and they're great for using if you lose your sleeves from any of those, or if you've bought LP-styled CD packages from other outlets – and want something to protect the CD inside! Antistatic, and very well constructed. Record Care

CD Plastic Sleeves20 Polyclear Japanese Open Top Plastic Sleeves – Multi-Disc CD ... Record Care
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 MontgomeryBoss Guitar (20 bit remaster) ... CD
Riverside, 1963. Used .... $6.99
Early greatness from Wes Montgomery – a real cooker that features the great Mel Rhyne on organ, coming out of the same Indy hub as Wes – plus Jimmy Cobb on drums! The bass-less trio format burns nicely throughout – coming across with a bit more soul jazz burn than on Wes' later sides, that small combo that came from Montgomery's earlier roots. Titles include a couple of Montgomery originals – "The Trick Bag" and "Fried Pies" – plus the tunes "Besame Mucho", "Dearly Beloved", "Days Of Wine & Roses", "Canadian Sunset", "The Breeze & I", and "For Heaven's Sake". Also includes bonus tracks "Besame Mucho (take 2)" and "Fried Pies (take 1)". CD

Universal (Brazil), Late 50s/1960s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 20CDs .... $399.99
Vinicius De Moraes is an artist with the soul of a poet, but a hell of a recording career too – one that spans the earliest years of bossa nova, which he helped to create – and runs through some tremendous collaborations in the 60s and 70s as well! This wonderful set brings together all the important Vinicius De Moraes albums for Philips – including a number that have never been on CD before – recordings that take on a wonderful range of styles and different approaches, each very well suited to the nature of the specific projects, or the lyrical needs of the master! Some of the most important records here are the collaborations – including early Black Orpheus work with Jobim, Afro-Sambas with Baden Powell, and later duets with Toquinho – but there's also important soundtracks, music and poetry projects, and some very rare material too! The collection features two separate CDs of rare material, unusual cuts, and singles – Pela Luz Dols Olhos Teus 1 & 2 – plus the individual albums Orfeu Da Conceicao, Vinicius & Odette Lara, Vinicius Caymmi No Zum Zum, De Vinicius E Baden with Ciro Monteiro, Os Afro Sambas, Vinicius Poesia E Cancao Ao Vivo Vols 1 & 2, Garota De Ipanema soundtrack, Jesus Cristo Superstar, Vinicius Canta Nossa Vilha Gabriela, Vinicius & Toquinho (1974), Vinicius/Toquinho (1975), Deus Lhe Pague, Antologia Poetica, 10 Anos De Toquinho & Vinicius, Ump Pouco De Ilusao, and A Arca De Noe Vols 1 & 2.

Fantasy/OJC, 1953. Used .... $6.99
A legendary concert – recorded at Massey Hall in Toronto, with a previously-unmatched quintet of superstar bop players – Charlie Parker on alto, Dizzy Gillespie on trumpet, Bud Powell on piano, Charles Mingus on bass, and Max Roach on drums – all coming together in a performance that's a bit rough at times, but which more than makes up for that roughness in its own sense of history! This single LP features the quintet performances from the date (others featured the trio of Powell, Mingus, and Roach) – on titles that include "Perdido", "Salt Peanuts", "All The Things You Are", "Wee", and "Hot House".

Sonny RollinsWorktime! (20 bit remaster) ... CD
Prestige, 1955. New Copy .... $8.99 14.98
If worktime was like this for us, you'd catch us showing up on the job early every day – but sadly, nothing at our office can match the brilliance of early Sonny Rollins here – a sharp-edged genius that perfectly illustrates why he was one of the greatest players on his horn for many decades running! There's a depth of tone on the record that rivals Coleman Hawkins or Lester Young – but a quickness of pace and imagination that shows a clear influence from Charlie Parker, and a deftness that few were bringing to the tenor at the time. The rhythm section here is super tight – and features Ray Bryant on piano, George Morrow on bass, and Max Roach on drums – all supporting Rollins' bold lead with lines that bristle with electricity, but still often fall back to let the sound of the tenor envelop the whole group. Tracks are longish, and titles include "Raincheck", "There Are Such Things", "Paradox", and "It's All Right With Me". CD

VariousDisco Giants – 20 Full Length Disco Classics Of The 80s ... CD
Vinyl Masterpiece (Netherlands), Early 80s. New Copy 2CD .... $16.99
Way more than you'd expect from the title and cover – not a batch of familiar disco hits, but a treasure trove of club classics from the early 80s! Sure, some of the artists here are familiar – but most of them are from the indie side of the spectrum, and even the few big stars are represented by either non-hit tracks, or hard to find remixes that make this collection well worth seeking out! And given the early 80s focus of the track selection, there's less disco here than 80s groove and boogie-styled rhythms – heavy on the beats and keyboards, and still filled with plenty of great vocals. 20 tracks on 2CDs – with titles that include "Dreamer (long vocal)" by BB&Q Band, "Nights Of Pleasure (Nick Martinelli mix)" by Loose Ends, "You Can't Run From My Love" by Stephanie Mills, "I'm Out To Catch" by Leon Haywood, "Just Another Lover (12" mix)" by Johnny Kemp, "Fall Down" by Tramaine, "I Feel For You (12" mix)" by Chaka Khan, "Got To Be Real" by Selection, "Garden Of Eve (long)" by Yvonne Gage, "The Rhythm Of The Jungle" by The Quick, "Burnin Love" by Con Funk Shun, "I Need You" by Network, "Love Take Over" by Five Star, and "To Be With You" by Maxx Traxx.

A mindblower – and the kind of record we only come across once in a blue moon! Tony Aiken & Future 2000 were an obscure mid 70s group from New York – all players skilled in the burgeoning club scene of the time, but who also had their roots in Caribbean music – coming together for this unique record in a festive blend of early disco and funky styles! The record's got a great home-grown feel – a warm ensemble effort that's got equal parts soul and groove – and which bubbles over with personal touches that really make the tracks stand out from the pack. Includes the side-long jammer "Unity Sing It Shout It", plus the funky disco classic "Better Days", and the soulful cuts "She Loves Me", "Good Things", and "Time Tunnel".

New Tony Allen with Afrobeat 2000NEPA – Never Expect Power Always ... LP
Celluloid/Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 1984. New Copy (reissue).... $22.99
Landmark material from the legendary Nigerian percussionist! NEPA is a great little album from Tony Allen – recorded in the mid 80s, but with a chunky groove that's very much in the style of his 70s Afro Funk work! The title track is one of Allen's best cuts ever – a really anthemic tune with a punchy hook that's as infectious as it is political – and other tracks on the set are equally nice, touched with some slight electronic bits, giving them a cool Celluloid Electric Africa vibe! Titles include the long numbers "When One Road Close" and "NEPA (Never Expect Power Always)", in regular and dub versions – plus the great closing track "Olokun". LP, Vinyl record album

Rare organ-laced late 60s garagey rock from the Aztecs! "World Of Woe" has woozy keyboards and raw rhythms that remind us of our favorite garage nuggets of the period, but works on a deeper level, thanks to some moody lyrics and surprisingly strong group harmonies. "Why Can't You Tell Me" is a more raucous, uptempo rager – but again, cuts deep thanks to some groovy harmonies. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Beach BoysMade In California 1962 to 2012 (6 CD set) ... CD
Capitol, 1960s/1970s. New Copy 6 CDs .... $139.99 149.98
An insanely big batch of Beach Boys rarities – a set that features 60 previously unreleased tracks, in a bundle that includes 174 titles in all – packaged in an ultra-cool puffy-covered book! The book's style is meant to replicate a high school yearbook from the old days – a format that's quite fitting for the package, given that the collection documents the group's 50 years in music – with photos, archive material, yearbook-like inscriptions from the group members, and even a copy of Brian Wilson's handwritten high school essay "My Philosophy"! Most other tracks are unusual versions, different mixes, session tracks, alternates, and even lots of live material too – and the set's a true treasure for diehard fans like us – who often love the group most the farthest we get away from the hits. Unreleased tracks include "This Whole World (acapella)", "I Can Hear Music (live Maryland 1975)", "Why Don't They Let Us Fall In Love", "You're Still A Mystery", "Goin To The Beach", "Sail Plane Song (2012 stereo mix)", "Amusement Parks USA (early version)", "I Get Around (mono with session intro)", "Surfers Rule (with session intro)", "It's Over Now (alt)", "Brian's Back (alt)", "Hushabye (BBC 1964", "California Feelin (demo)", "California Girls (lei'd in Hawaii version)", "Surf's Up (1967 version)", "Guess I'm Dumb (instrumental w/background vocals)", "It's About Time (live Chicago 1973)", "Runaway (live Chicago 1965 with concert promo intro)", "The Letter (Hawaii 1967 rehearsal)", "Wild Honey (live New Jersey 1972), "Home Recordings/Surfin Rehearsal Highlights", and plenty plenty more.

Ronn/Fuel 2000, Late 70s. New Copy .... $4.99 11.98
One of the last great blues artists to record for the Jewel/Paula label – and a key figure in the Chicago underground as well! Buster Benton works here with a style that's definitely got the Chicago electric vibe of the 70s – but which also echoes earlier, rootsier modes as well – often delivered with a style that's a lot earthier than most of the other blues work coming out at the time on bigger labels – exactly the kind of sound that kept Benton a club favorite back in the day. Titles include "Sweet 94", "Spider In My Stew", "Sorry", "Lonesome For A Dime", "Do It In The Rain", "Lean On Me", "Love Like I Wanna", "Born With The Blues", "Dangerous Woman", and "Money Is The Name Of The Game".

The second volume in Billy Bragg & Wilco's Mermaid Avenue series – dedicated to bringing to life unfinished Woody Guthrie tunes – thanks to Woody's daughter Nora inviting them to work with Guthrie's lyrics, penned throughout his life, but never finished as recorded songs. Bragg's take is straight-forward, strong-voiced folk, and Wilco takes creative twists and turns with their versions, making for a compellingly diverse bunch of songs. Includes "Airline To Heaven", "Feed Of Man", "Hot Rod Hotel", "I Was Born", "Remember The Mountain Bed", "Meanest Man", "Somebody Some Morning Sometime", "Joe DiMaggio Done It Again", "Blood Of The Lamb" and more.

Brides Of FunkensteinNever Buy Texas From A Cowboy ... LP
Atlantic, 1979. Very Good .... $14.99
A tremendously soulful session from the late 70s P-Funk empire – sung by a group who were George Clinton's answer to Three Degrees, First Choice, and other female club trios of the time! The sound here is hardly as disco as those other groups, though – and there's plenty of funky Clinton touches in the mix – including rumbling basslines, raspy guitars, and a tightly focused groove that has the singers Dawn Silva, Sheila Horn, and Jeanette McGruder working equally with the larger group of musicians on the record. Production is by Bootsy Collins and Clinton, with horn arrangements by Fred Wesley – which makes for some great Horny Horns funk touches on most tracks! The title cut – "Never Buy Texas From A Cowboy" – runs on as a long P-Funk groove for about 15 minutes, but other tracks are shorter, and titles include "I'm Holding You Responsible", "Smoke Signals", "Party Up In Here", and "Didn't Mean To Fall In Love".

Muscular angularity from the trio of reeds titan Peter Brotzmann, John Edwards on double bass and Steve Noble on drums – not as all out ferocious as some of the more frenzied Brotzmann recordings, though still plenty invigorating! The title would be sly whatever the record sounded like, but it's actually amusingly dichotomous, as this is really, really strong stuff. Brotzmann's tone is clear and fluid, and the pacing grows more and more busily as the record progresses, never flying out off the rails. Edwards and Noble are inventive and adaptable, so it's not terribly surprising that the trio works so brilliantly together despite this being billed as their first time working as unit, but it's exciting all the same!

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

Benny CarterSwingin' The 20s (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Contemporary (Japan), 1958. Used .... $19.99
Benny Carter swings material from the 20s – but the results are a lot better than you might expect! We'll be honest in saying that the cover and theme of this one always made us figure the record was some sort of "old timey" affair – but Benny's surprisingly cool on the record, and is working in a small group mode that may well be even more deftly compelling than his earlier combo sides for Verve! The group here is only a quartet – with Benny on alto and trumpet, Earl Hines on piano, Leroy Vinnegar on bass, and Shelly Manne on drums – and it's possibly the modern rhythm section that gives the record a nicely soulful groove, and lets the tunes come off as more than just rehashed classics. Carter's tone on the alto is great – and very nicely recorded, with that edge that was showing up strongly in these later years – and titles include "Laugh Clown Laugh", "Thou Swell", "Who's Sorry Now", "A Monday Date", "Someone To Watch Over Me", "In A Little Spanish Town", and "Mary Lou".

Johnny CashShe Used To Love Me A Lot (original version, 2013 version) ... 7-inch
Columbia/Legacy, Early 80s. New Copy (pic cover).... $8.99 9.98
A previously unheard Johnny Cash side from the early 80s – and a pretty strong one – with the original unreleased Billy Sherrill production on one side, and a new Elvis Costello produced version on the flip. The song is "She Used To Love Me A Lot", a great tune recorded by number of country heavies over the years, but it sounds tailor-made for Johnny's deep, soulful voice. It’s produced by Billy Sherrill, who is renowned for the string-laden countrypolitan sound, but he doesn't really go there with this song – instead flavoring it with mandolin, ome great, reverb-y electric guitar and some nice female backing vocals. Costello's mix is a bit more stripped down. Good stuff! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Don Cherry really breaks out here on his classic Mu sessions from France – using the new freedoms of post-68 Paris to explore themes at a level that would set the tone for generations to come! The album's very spare, and very improvised – with Cherry on pocket trumpet, piano, and wooden flute – plus a bit of percussion too – alongside drummer Ed Blackwell, who's equally unbridled – showing a huge evolution since the time both he and Don spent in the group of Ornette Coleman! There's a few echoes of the global elements that Cherry would later embrace more strongly in the 70s – but the core energy here is mostly improvised jazz, handled at a level that really makes a lot better use of the freedom than some of Don's contemporaries. Titles include "Total Vibration", "Sun Of The East", "Brilliant Action", "Terrestrial Beings", "Bamboo Night", "The Mysticism Of My Sound", "Psycho Drama", "Smiling Faces Going Places", "Teo Teo Can", and "Dollar Brand/Spontaneous Composing/Exert Man On The Moon".

ClashLondon Calling (2013 Black Friday Release) ... CD
Epic, 1979. New Copy 2 CDs (reissue).... $15.99
Quite possibly the crowning masterpiece by The Clash – and a record that certainly pushed them out of the punk rock ghetto and into the collections of countless mainstream folks over the years! This is the set that really pushed the group over the top – the one that harnessed all the best energy of the previous two records and gave it a strong new focus – one that draws on roots as deep as the late 50s Elvis reference of the cover art, but which also bubbled over with newly approaching 80s musical ideas and politics! Yet the message never gets in the way of the guitar-heavy tuneful appeal of the songs – ringing out for decades on classics like "Train In Vain", "London Calling", "Spanish Bombs", "Lost In The Supermarket", "Guns Of Brixton", "Clampdown", and "Rudy Can't Fail".

Epic, 1980. New Copy 3 CDs .... $18.99
The longest album ever from The Clash – a stunning triple LP set that really shows the group bristling with new ideas and energy throughout! There's a hell of a lot going on here – some cuts that are every bit as strong as the previous records, others that offer a few mis-steps but in a wonderfully playful way – and a few more that really hit this sort of unique mix of genres and politics that could only be summed up as Clash-like at its best! Bits of hip hop, reggae, new wave, funk, and more mix together beautifully – and the album's got a hell of a lot of charm and character, even if you're skipping past a few of the cuts you don't like as much as the others. 36 tracks in all – and titles include "The Magnificent Seven", "Hitsville UK", "Junco Partner", "The Leader", "Police On My Back", "Midnight Log", "The Call Up", "Washington Bullets", "Broadway", "Rebel Waltz", "Look Here", "The Crooked Beat", "Somebody Got Murdered", "Lose This Skin", "Charlie Don't Surf", "Kingston Advice", "Corner Soul", "Let's Go Crazy", "The Sound Of Sinners", "Living In Fame", "Silicone On Sapphire", and "Career Opportunities".

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.

Miles DavisJazz Track (mono) (2013 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Columbia, 1958. New Copy (reissue).... $24.99
Although not actually a proper album – this is still one of the greatest Miles Davis albums of all time! Side one features 10 tracks from Miles' amazing soundtrack to the film Ascenseur Pour L'Echafaud – with excellent work by French players Barney Wilen, Rene Urtreger, and Pierre Michelot, on haunting moody tracks like "Generique", "Lassassinat De Carala", "Au Bar Du Petit Bac", and "Dinner Au Motel". Great stuff – and with a wonderful sound that's like no other Miles album! Side 2 is equally great – as it features 3 classic sextet tunes – "On Green Dolphin Street", "Put Your Little Foot Right Out", and "Stella By Starlight" –peformed with Coltrane, Cannonball Adderley, and Bill Evans in that amazing Kind Of Blue mode of perfection. Truly one of our favorite albums of all time! LP, Vinyl record album

Miles Davis/Thelonious MonkMiles & Monk At Newport (mono) (180 gram pressing) (2013 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Columbia, 1958/1963. New Copy (reissue).... $24.99
A slightly misleading record – but a great one nonetheless! From the title and cover, you might imagine that Thelonious Monk and Miles Davis were sharing the stage together at the Newport Jazz Festival – but instead, the album actually features separate performances by each artist – actually even recorded 5 years apart! The Miles Davis recording is from 1958 – a great year that has John Coltrane working with the group, alongside Wynton Kelly on piano, Cannonball Adderley on alto, Paul Chambers on bass, and Jimmy Cobb on drums – performing lively versions of "Ah Leu Cha", "Straight No Chaser", "Fran Dance" and "Two Bass Hit". The Monk material is even more unique – recorded in 1963, with Monk's usual quartet of Charlie Rouse on tenor, Butch Warren on bass, and Frankie Dunlop on drums – joined by the legendary Pee Wee Russell on clarinet – recently revived in jazz at the time, and displaying surprisingly modernist tendencies! Both Monk tracks are long – and include versions of "Nutty" and "Blue Monk". LP, Vinyl record album

Sweet G-Funk from DJ Cam – a great set of instrumentals that are first inspired by electro funk from the start of the 80s, then the later use of samples and beats from those tunes in west coast hip hop! The instrumental presentation keeps the cuts from ever sounding kitchy or copycat – as there's no rhymes or lyrics, and instead a great focus on the kinds of beats, basslines, and keyboard bits that we've always loved in Cam's music! Some tunes are very electro, others have a warmer glow overall – and the whole set's a great chapter in the always-great body of work from this wonderful French talent. Titles include "Lowrider", "Streetlife", "Hot", "Sunset", "Colorz", "In Da Club", and "Endless Summer". LP, Vinyl record album

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

A great collection of Dylan "Side Tracks" – sort of a "best of" complilation of tracks that didn't make it onto his classic albums proper! Dylan's legend grew and grew over years, not only on the strengh of his enduring classic albums, but also in the discover of one time unreleased or heavily bootlegged material – first with the eventual release of the Basement Tapes, then the Biograph box set, and especially the Bootleg Series – and some of the best of that material is on this limited edition 3LP set.

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 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". CD features 3 bonus tracks – "Stoned To The Bone", "Every Second A Fool Is Born", and "Lonesome Christmas". CD

Dean Wareham had really become a master of hypnotic, just spacey enough guitar sounds by the time this record hit, with Dean & Naomi's plaintive vocals ekeing raw emotions out of the songs like no other group working at the time.

GP 2K is a more mellow and easygoing set of funky hip hop, one that's lighter on the politics than the group work Brand Nubian – not that Puba had the most righteous Brand Nubian verses to begin. Some lighter, jazzier vibes make it into the production, but there's also a lot of crackling funk and soul in the beats, with Grand Puba's agenda free, expert rhyme style busy and out front. The album is worth it just for the reworking of Debarge's "I Like It" alone, but there's loads of niceness here! Other tracks include "Very Special", "A Little Of This", "2000", "Amazing".

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".

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

Leon HaywoodKeep It In The Family ... LP
20th Century, 1974. Very Good+ .... $8.99
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

Leon HaywoodNaturally (with bonus tracks) ... CD
20th Century/Big Break (UK), 1980. New Copy .... $14.99
One of the best records ever by Leon Haywood! Leon, naturally, delivers masterfully here – on a funkier record than we would have expected for the dawn of the 80s, with a couple equally great smoother moments – and it features a couple of his bigger hit singles, to boot! On one hand, Leon is skirting the trendier studio touches of the immediate post disco era, by working in more timeless funky soul style. On the other hand, he embraces the coming rap revolution on the closing "Lovers Rap", and proves he can hang with the changing scene as well as anybody. Great stuff! "Daydream", "Don't Push It Don't Force It", "Love is What We Came Here For", "If You're Lookin' For A Night Of Fun (Look Past Me, I'm Not The One)", "Who You Been Giving It Up To?", "That's What Time It Is", and "If You're Lookin' for a Night of Fun". Bonus tracks on this version from Big Break include "Daydream (12" Disco Mix)", plus the single versions of "If You're Lookin' For A Night Of Fun (Look Past Me, I'm Not The One)", "Don't Push It Don't Force It" and "Daydream".

Louis Hjulmand, Bent Axen, Alex RielJazz Og Poesi (10 inch vinyl – 200 gram pressing) ... LP
Louisiana Gyldendal/SeriE.WOC (Italy), 1963. New Copy (reissue).... $49.99
A really unusual project – and one of the most compelling meetings of jazz and spoken word we've ever seen! The set features instrumental tracks penned by Danish vibes player Louis Hjulmand – each based around a different poem which is presented before the music – which is played by Louis on vibes, Bent Axen on piano, Benny Nielsen on bass, and Alex Riel on drums! Poems are written and delivered by Jorgen Leth, Jorgen Sonne, Klaus Rifbjerg, Robert Corydon, and Jorge Gustava Brandt – all in Danish, with a quality that's oddly dark in the recording technique – and seems to set a special stage for the instrumetal moments to follow. The original 10" recording is quite a rare gem – and titles include "Til Komeda", "Turistplakat", "Opbrud", "New Salesburg", "Tre Koncepter", and "Aldring". LP, Vinyl record album

New Luther IngramAbsolutely The Best Of Luther Ingram – If Loving You Is Wrong I Don't Want To Be Right ... CD
Koko/Fuel 2000, 1970s. New Copy .... $4.99 11.98
Genius work from Luther Ingram – a singer who helped take southern soul to a whole new level during the 70s! This sweet collection of material definitely lives up to its title promise – as it pulls together nearly every important cut by Luther, all produced by Johnny Baylor with this low-burning flame that works beautifully for Ingram's sophisticated vocal approach. Luther's got a great way of balancing personal pain with positive energy – as you'll hear on cuts like "Ain't That Loving You", "Pity For The Lonely", "Love Ain't Gonna Run Me Away", "If Loving You Is Wrong I Don't Want To Be Right", "Missing You", "I'll Love You Until The End", "Let's Steal Away To The Hideaway", and "Do You Love Somebody".

New Ahmad JamalJamalca ... LP
20th Century, 1974. Very Good .... $18.99
After Ahmad spent the 60s playing mellow acoustic piano, he turned into a great jazz artist on the Fender Rhodes – and this album is one of the best he ever made in that genre. The record has some great orchestrations by Richard Evans, and Ahmad's tone is very rich and full, with a great soul sound! The album features some great jazz funk covers – like a version of the classic break track "Misdemeanor", plus "Trouble Man", "Ghetto Child", and "Don't Misunderstand". LP, Vinyl record album

JamiroquaiReturn Of The Space Cowboy (2CD 20th Anniversary edition) ... CD
Sony, 1994. New Copy 2CD .... $13.99
A killer of an album from Jamiroquai – the first time we really sat up and took notice, and said "hey, these guys are onto something good!" The record's pretty darn great all the way through – a warm batch of tunes that starts with a classic 70s mode that's part Stevie Wonder, part Steely Dan – and which runs through some of the more modern London percussion/production techniques to freshen things up! Titles include "Mr Moon", "Kids", "Manifest Destiny", "Light Years", "Stillness In Time", "Morning Glory", and "Space Cowboy". 2CD version features loads of bonus tracks too – including "Space Clav", "Stillness In Time (edit)", "Space Cowboy (David Morales mix)", "Light Years (4 to da floor mix)", "Space Cowboy (demo)", and liver versions of "Scam", "Journey To Arnhemland", "We Getting Down", and "Light Years".

Leroy JenkinsSpace Minds, New Worlds, Survival Of America ... LP
Tomato, 1978. Near Mint- .... $11.99
One of the most ambitious albums ever recorded by avant violinist Leroy Jenkins – a very politically-driven record that has even more power than some of his earlier works! Jenkins' vision is very sharp here – expressed brilliantly in the album's side-long title track, with help from Andrew Cyrille on percussion, Anthony Davis on piano and electric piano, George Lewis on trombone and electronics, and Richard Teitelbaum on moog and moog systems! The album also features some shorter tracks by an acoustic group without Tietelbaum – titles that include "Dancing On A Melody", "Kick Back Stomp", "Through The Ages Jehovah, and "The Clowns".

Expansion (UK), 2014. New Copy .... $7.99
A sweet soulful stepper from Paul Johnson – a cut that feels like it was lifted right from lost 70s tapes from the LA scene – right down to its jazzy, Steely Dan-styled hook! The soul talk mix is great, but we especially love what Dego and Kaidi do to the tune – crackling the whole thing up with an even hipper 4 Hero sort of vibe! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Shirley JonesAlways In the Mood ... LP
Philadelphia International, 1986. Very Good .... $0.99
A great little set from this solo member of the Jones Girls – and one of the strongest new sets on Philly International in the 80s! Shirley delivers a warm set of sparkling modern soul tracks that really show the growth and the maturity of the Philly sound in the 80s – getting way past the simple club of the early years, and moving into a more adult mode that's helped along strongly by top-shelf production from Bunny Sigler, Dexter Wansel, Reggie Griffin, and Gamble & Huff. Titles include "She Knew About Me", "Breaking Up", "Do You Get Enough Love?", and "Always In The Mood". LP, Vinyl record album

Jongo TrioJongo Trio (1972) ... CD
EMI/Odeon (Brazil), 1972. New Copy .... $3.99
The rare second album by the Jongo Trio – a fantastic bossa group who mixed together vocals and keyboards with stunning magic! The trio's approach is similar to that of the more famous Tamba Trio – in that the three members groove on keyboards, bass, and percussion – while also harmonizing vocals in a soaring, airy style that really adds a lot to the set. This album's got the group using a bit of organ and electric piano in addition to their usual acoustic keys – making for a bossa style that's slightly electrified, with great results on the album's overall sound. The set includes a really great uptempo version of "Aguas De Marco", plus the tracks "Alo Feveiro", "Quem Vem La", "Cavaleiro De Aruanda", "Sandalia De Prata", "Bate Barriga", "Feitinha P'Ro Poeta", and "Duas Contas".

Don Julian & The LarksShorty The Pimp ... CD
Southbound/Ace (UK), 1972. New Copy .... $14.99
Killer funky reissue of this rare soundtrack by Don Julian & The Larks! You probably already know Don Julian's funky work from the Savage soundtrack, and this one's just as good – with even more cuts than the original, including a lot of tasty soul cuts and covers with a deep soulful sound. The plot of the film has Don and The Larks playing a cool little lounge funk band, caught up in sort of a mini gang war between 2 thugs who want to manage them. One of the thug's named "Shorty The Pimp", and his name provides Don with the funky title to the great theme of the film, which is a very tasty groover. Other tracks have the band covering other current soul hits, and playing some extra-dope instrumentals with a nice hard sound. Titles include "Schoolin & Foolin", "Vato's Brew", "Brother What It Is", "Super Slick", "Inner City Blues", "If There's A Hell Below", and "Message From A Black Man". On CD only! CD
