New Jerry GoldsmithOmen (180 gram pressing) ... LP
20th Century/Mondotees, 1976. New Copy Gatefold (reissue).... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Arguably one of the greatest horror soundtracks ever – an intense bit of work that builds on the vocal choral style of Carl Orff's Carmina Burana, using male and female voices in union with staccato orchestrations to invoke a fiercely tense mood – one that works perfectly for the spooky undercurrents of the film! The approach is amazing – and even on the mellower numbers, there's a real sense of danger lurking that makes for one heck of a spooky record – maybe even more so than some later, starker soundtracks – given the subtle approach of Jerry Goldmsith. Tracks include "The Piper Dreams", "The Fall", "The Altar", "Ave Santani", "The Demise Of Mrs Baylock", and "Killer's Storm". LP, Vinyl record album

Charles BradleyVictim Of Love (with bonus download) ... LP
Dunham/Daptone, 2013. New Copy .... $13.99 15.99
Damn amazing work from Charles Bradley – an instant soul classic for all generations, as you'll hear from the very first note! Not only are Bradley's vocals incredible – the kind of once-in-a-long-time approach he brought to his debut – but the backings and production are completely sublime too – magical music from the Menahan Street Band, who sound here like some lost combo from 60s Memphis, but without any of the hoke that reference might imply – instead that really unique approach that you'd only find on one of your few favorite vintage soul albums – maybe Bobby Taylor & The Vancouvers, or Jesse James on his 60s album for 20th Century! Yet the sound here isn't just vintage for vintage sake, either – as there's an intensity that's very present, contemporary, and urgent – a sound that doesn't die – and which just gets better and better with each new listen. Tremendous stuff – even from the Daptone universe we've been loving for years and years – with titles that include "Strictly Reserved For You", "You Put The Flame On It", "Dusty Blue", "Love Bug Blues", "Hurricane", "Through The Storm", "Confusion", and "Where Do We Go From Here".

VariousTropicalia – A Brazilian Revolution In Sound ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2LP .... $24.99
An amazing introduction to one of the most significant cultural movements in the latter half of the 20th Century – the groundbreaking years of Tropicalia in late 60s Brazil! The music and legacy of Tropicalia are referenced often, but hardly ever presented this well – and this package is everything we could have hoped for as an introduction to the movement – filled with key late 60s works from the most important musicians associated with Tropicalia – an great starting point for the movement that's filled with most essential tracks! And even if you have some of this stuff already on individual albums, it really sounds great together – a rich document of this amazing musical moment. Titles include "Bat Macumba" by Gilberto Gil, "Tuareg" and "Sebastiana" by Gal Costa, "A Minha Menina" and "Panis Et Circenses" by Os Mutantes, "Alfo Mega" and "Tropicalia" by Caetano Veloso, "Gloria" and "Jimmy Renda-Se" by Tom Ze, "Procissao" by Gilberto Gil, "Ave Genghis Khan" by Os Mutantes, "Take It Easy My Brother Charles" by Jorge Ben, "Quero Sambal Meu Bem" by Tom Ze, "Lost In The Paradise" by Caetano Veloso, "Bat Macumba" by Os Mutantes, "Domingo No Parque" by Gilberto Gil & Os Mutantes, and "Irene" by Caetano Veloso.

John CageEmpty Words – Parte III ... LP
1977. New Copy (reissue).... Around November 1, 2013 (delayed)
A compelling vocal performance from John Cage – recorded in Milan in 1977, and stretching for over 2 hours. The overall feeling is similar to some of the classic Dadaist vocal compositions from the early 20th century – as Cage's often-nonsense text unlocks new lyricism in familiar verbal passages.

Frank Zappa/Mothers Of InventionUncle Meat ... LP
Bizarre/Zappa, 1969. New Copy 2 LP Gatefols (reissue).... Just Sold Out!
An amazing movie in sound – supposedly music (and more) that was going to be used in a film project, issued to the public while Zappa was trying to raise money for production! The album's one of the most tripped-out studio efforts to date from the group – loads of overdubbing, and wonderfully complicated instrumentation – with some especially great keyboards from Don Preston and Ian Underwood, whose keys alone almost preface the future of fusion – while, at the same time, display some key links to 20th century avant music as well! Vocals are dropped in at just the right time, but the instrumental interplay is what really makes the record special – over many short tracks that include "Mr Green Genes", "We Can Shoot You", "Dog Breath Variations", "Sleeping In A Jar", "The Legend Of The Golden Arches", "Uncle Meat", "Cruising For Burgers", and "King Kong" in many variations.

New Brian BladeLandmarks (with bonus download) ... LP
Blue Note, 2014. New Copy 2LP Gatefold .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Brian Blade's Fellowship Band keeps on getting better and bolder over the years – really soaring out here under the leadership Blade's great drums – with a soulfully expressive feel that takes us back to his Blue Note albums from the last few years of the 20th century! Pianist Jon Cowherd has these solid lines that really set things up right away – matching the rhythmic impulses of Blade, but also really pushing forward with these waves of color embellished by Myron Walden on alto and bass clarinet, and Melvin Butler on soprano and tenor. Titles include "Down River", "Landmarks", "State Lines", "Friends Call Her Dot", "Bonnie Be Good", "Embers", and "Farewell Bluebird". LP, Vinyl record album

New VariousSuper Breaks 2 – Essential Jazz, Soul and Funk Breakbeats ... LP
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Classic breaks – all the way through! This may not be the most underground stuff in the world to those out there who've been digging through crates for funk and soul for the past ten years, but it is an exquisite compilation that features some of the best funky tracks used as samples by hip hoppers, nearly every one of them a famous cut that you'll probably recognize in a minute! Titles include "I Like It" by The Emotions, "Dance To The Drummer's Beat" by Herman Kelly, "Cramp Your Style" by All The People, "Hard Times" by Baby Huey, "Ghetto: Misfortune's Wealth" by 24 Carat Black, "Kool Is Back" by Funk Inc, "Our Generation" by Ernie Hines, "Heaven & Hell" by 20th Century Steel Band, "Unhooked Generation" by Freda Payne, "Papa Was, Too" by Joe Tex, "Just A Groove In G" by Wilbur Bascomb & The Zodiac, "Be Thankful For What You Got" by William De Vaughn, and "You're Getting A Little Too Smart" by The Detroit Emeralds. 18 cuts in all!

New MulatuSketches Of Ethiopia (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Jazz Village (France), 2013. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
A brilliant new recording from Mulatu – one that shows that the Ethiopian legend hasn't lost a bit of his edge in recent years! The sound here is still very strong and bold – that crucial blending of African roots and jazzy inflections that's made Mulatu one of the most influential musicians of the latter few decades of the 20th Century – an artist who's only finally getting his due in recent years, as a range of different artists help to transform his sound. Yet there's still nothing better than Mulatu himself – as you'll hear on this wonderful set of tracks played with the Step Ahead band, with the leader on vibes, piano, and keyboards. There's a bit of vocals on a few tracks – sung by Tesfaye – but most of the record is focused on the instrumental passages, which are filled with lots of wonderful exotic inflections. Titles include "Gmuz", "Assosa Derache", "Azmari", "Gamo", "Hager Fiker", and "Surma". LP, Vinyl record album

New MoondogMoondog – The Viking Of Sixth Avenue ... LP
Honest Jons (UK), 1950s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold .... Out Of Stock
A long-overdue tribute to the legendary Moondog – one of the true visionaries of American music in the 20th Century! Moondog got his starts as a blind musician working the streets of New York at the end of the 40s, but he did so (as you'll note on the cover photo) with a range of unusual instruments of his own invention, and in a minimal, rhythmic style that linked together primitivism with higher musical ideals. Moondog's often been called "the father of minimalism" – and while his experiments of the 50s prefaced the work of Steve Reich, Terry Riley, and others, his work was also much more personal, and had an earthy intensity that's still tremendously powerful even decades later! This collection is one of the first to dip into the earliest of Moondog's recordings – his recordings for the Mars, SRC, Brunswick, and Moondog labels – which are presented here alongside selected tracks from his albums for Epic and Prestige, also of similar vintage. Nearly all the tracks here offer a very primitive blend of percussion that's sometimes mixed with unusual woodwind or stringed instruments – nearly all of Moondog's own invention – and the package also features some great notes on his long career, plus some photos that are as gripping as the music itself! Titles include "Down Is Up", "Big Cat", "Bumbo", "Rimshot", "Rabbit Hop", "Instrumental Round", "Be A Hobo", "Dog Trot", "Oasis", "2 W 46th Street", and "Why Spend The Dark Night With You".

New VariousPop A Paris Vol 4 – Minet Jerk ... LP
Universal (France), Late 60s. New Copy 2LP .... Out Of Stock
A treasure trove of groovy tunes from 60s France – one of the most wonderful pop scenes of the 20th century, perfectly captured in this great set! The tunes really know how to groove – blending guitars, tight drums, lots of bass, and other cool elements – all in support of catchy little singers, many of whom we'd never heard of, but all of whom really rock our world – despite an obvious language difference! These tunes are all pretty darn great – the kind of numbers that grab you immediately with a groovy magic that's never been duplicated! Titles include "Diba Diba" by Boby Lapointe, "Tu Crois Toujours" by Virgine, "Marilu" by Serge Gainsbourg, "Heuruex Tous Lex Deux" by Frank Alamo, "I Got You Babe" by Eddie Vartan, "Sensationnel Jeffry" by Annie Philippe, "Jimmy Est Parti" by Anouk, "Mon Ami" by Chris Kersen, and "Le Roi D'Angleterre" by Nino Ferrer.
