New Steve ReichRadio Rewrite/Electric Counterpoint/Piano Counterpoint ... CD
Nonesuch, 2014. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Three different pieces by the great Steve Reich – including one world premiere! The title of the CD refers to the longest work here – "Radio Rewrite", a compelling composition based around themes from the music of Radiohead – which are then really abstracted by Reich, and taken into a sublime instrumental setting! The music is performed by the Alarm Will Sound ensemble, conducted by Alan Piersen – with instrumentation that includes two sets of vibes, two pianos, flute, clarinet, violin, cello, and viola. That piece alone is worth the price of admission – but the set also includes a great new recording of Reich's "Electric Counterpoint" – performed by Johnny Greenwood on electric guitar – and the solo piano "Piano Counterpoint", which is a new variation on Reich's "Six Pianos" from 1973. Definitely a highlight in the Steve Reich catalog – one of the best CDs of his music in years! CD

New VariousHammond Heroes – 60s R&B Organ Grooves ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great collection of 60s Hammond organ groovers – and from sources you might not normally expect! Given the fame of jazz players on the instrument – like Jimmy Smith and Jimmy McGriff – it's easy to forget how many rock and roll groups were also playing the Hammond in the 60s – clearly inspired by the work of Smith, McGriff, and others – but taking the instrument into a unique pre-fusion world that blended together rock, soul, jazz, and funk! And while much of the groups' work on organ was often overlooked alongside their more famous vocals, this set really corrects that fact by bringing together an all-instrumental lineup – 23 tracks pulled from lost albums and singles from some of the best of the British scene at the time – the cream of the crop of the beat group generation who were so influenced by American soul and jazz! Titles include "Stevie's Groove" by Spender Davis Group, "Jumping Jack Flash" by Wynder K Frog, "Zoom Widge & Wag" by Bobby Graham, "Working Out" by Dave Davani, "Adventures Of A Young Organ" by Ten Years After, "Jive Samba" by Remo Four, "Horses Cellar" by Peddlers, "Zoot's Sermon" by Zoot Money, "Critic's Choice" by Alan Price Set, and "Impressions Of Oliver" by Herd.

ArtisticsWhat Happened (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $16.99
A stunning early set from The Artistics – and exactly the kind of record that shows why they were one of the best Chicago soul groups at the end of the 60s! The harmonies are wonderful – smooth, but with a rough undercurrent too – balanced at a level that few groups could touch at the time, save maybe The Four Tops! Yet the style's way different than Motown, too – very much in that loping Brunswick soul style of the time, which means there's all these great grooves that really keep things going – even at mellower moments. Eugene Record produced and wrote most of the tracks – and titles include "What Happened", "Walking Tall", "With These Hands", "Why Did She Have To Leave Me", "When I'm Not Around", "Yesterday's Girl", and "Price Of Love".

BreakwaterBreakwater ... LP
Arista, 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A landmark set from a group who only ever gave the world two albums – but who've gone on to have a huge influence over the years! This initial offering from Breakwater is a masterful blend of jazzy fusion and mellower soul – a sound sifted together so perfectly, it really tops the rest of the combo's contemporaries – hitting a careful balance that never gets too cheesy or commercial, and which still manages to glow as strongly into the 21st century as it did when first released back in the day! The sound here is sublime – warm, but never sleepy – jazzy, but never cliched – and mixed in such a way that the vocals and instruments almost get center stage in the spotlight without trying to crowd one another out. Titles include the incredible "Work it Out" – worth the price of the record alone – plus "No Limit", "That's Not What We Came Here For", "Free Yourself", "Do It Till The Fluid Gets Hot", and "Feel Your Way". LP, Vinyl record album

Enrico SimonettiGrazie – Nonna ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1975. New Copy ... $16.99
Swirling strings and stepping keyboards from Enrico Simonetti – an Italian soundtrack composer who also also has a great ear for a sexy groove! Mellower melodies are mixed with Barry White-styled soulful strings – in a blend that creates some excellent funky instrumentals at a few key points, which really take the soundtrack way past territory of other Italian sex comedies of the time! These standout funky cuts are worth the price of admission alone – but they really get a strong sense of balance and presence from the gentler keyboard numbers, which pace the record beautifully, but all without losing any sense of soul. CD features 22 tracks in all – with keyboard solos by Simonetti himself! CD

New VariousCome Spy With Us – The Secret Agent Songbook ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $14.99
Seminal spy sounds from the 60s – a treasure trove of spy-themed tunes, and one that features loads of material you might not hear otherwise! The set doesn't feature the big hits from the James Bond films, and instead includes all the great little records that sprung up in the wake of those movies – cool jazz, vocal, and instrumental records that sometimes feature weird reworkings of more famous soundtrack numbers, sometimes lesser-known cuts from b-grade films, and sometimes fresh new spy numbers on their own! The style ranges from groovy guitar numbers to blaring jazzy tracks to slinky steppers that find a very cool balance between suspense and swing. Titles include "Dr Goldfoot & The Bikini Machine" by The Supremes, "The Last Of The Secret Agents" by Nancy Sinatra, "Theme From Danger Man" by Red Price, "A Man Alone" by John Barry, "Deadlier Than The Male" by The Walker Brothers, "Burke's Law" by Wynton Kelly, "We Should've" by Cleo Laine, "Our Man Flint" by Billy Strange, "Theme From Where The Spies Are" by Jimmy Smith, "The Liquidator" by Shirley Bassey, "I Spy" by Roland Shaw, "Come Spy With Me" by Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, and "High Wire" by Brian Fahey.

New Dolly Parton & Porter WagonerJust Between You & Me – The Complete Recordings 1967 to 1976 (6CD box set) ... CD
RCA/Bear Family (Germany), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 6CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest duets in country music – heard here in the complete range of their famous records for RCA! Porter Wagoner was a mighty dark singer on his own in the 60s, but in the company of newcomer Dolly Parton, he really found a warmer side – a way of mixing his sometimes-bleak views on love and life with Parton's undeniably ebullient approach – and her wonderful voice, which really helped balance out his own deeper tones. The work here runs from the early tracks – when Wagoner was the lead act, to mid 70s material – at a time when Parton was very ascendant, and still helped Porter find a way to stay in the spotlight. The beautiful box features all the album, singles, and rare material by the duo – 160 tracks on 6CDs, complete with one of those beautiful Bear Family LP-sized books – almost worth the price of the whole thing, given the data and wonderful images!

New Chi-LitesGive It Away (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Brunswick/Solid (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Excellent early material by The Chi-Lites – work that instantly soars above that of most of their contemporaries – with that incredible Windy City soul sound forged by the group's Eugene Record and producer Carl Davis! The groove is wonderful – free and easygoing, yet tight and right on the money too – lighter than the dancefloor styles of Detroit, a bit more sophisticated too – yet never apt to fall into all of the overly-emotive styles of the east coast too. This balance is what makes the group so wonderful – and really comes through on this early album – a treasure trove of songs penned by Eugene Record too! Titles include "Let Me Be The Man My Daddy Was", "Give It Away", "What Do I Wish For", "My Whole World Ended", "24 Hours Of Sadness", and "To Change My Love". CD has some great bonus tracks too – "Love Me", "Love Is Gone", "My Baby Loves Me", "Price Of Love", and "Baby It's Time". CD

New Michael JacksonBad – 25th Anniversary Edition (3CDs/DVD – includes Live At Wembley) ... CD
Epic, 1987. New Copy 3 CD & DVD ... Out Of Stock
The third great album in the trilogy that includes Off The Wall and Thriller – and a set that still has Michael Jackson running strong at the height of his solo powers! Quincy Jones is still at the helm, and Michael more than proves that he can still come up with a pop tune without going too far over the top – catchy, compelling numbers that played well all over the world of pop – but which still hang onto just a little part of his soul roots too! That balance is a key factor to the success of this set – a record that helped re-ignite interest in Jackson's music, and introduce him to a whole new generation – while still keeping most of the older fans plenty pleased too. Titles include "Just Good Friends", "Smooth Criminal", "Bad", "Another Part Of Me", "Man In The Mirror", and "Speed Demon". Second CD is filled with great bonus material – a huge amount of tracks that include "Free", "Song Groove", "I'm So Blue", "Don't Be Messin Round", "Streetwalker", "Fly Away", "Price Of Fame", "Toto Mi Amor Eres Tu", "Je Ne Vieux Pas La Fin De Nous", "Bad (Afrojack rmx)", "Speed Demon (Nero rmx)", and "Bad Afrojack club)". Also features the CD and DVD of Michael Jackson's massive performance at Wembley Stadium in 1988 – part of the Bad world tour,a nd filled with great performances! CD
