Equipe 84ID (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Dischi Ricordi/RPM (UK), 1970. New Copy .... $13.99
An Italian prog album, but with a difference – the difference being that these guys are tighter and more tuneful than most of their contemporaries – and really show a style that's right up there with the best early proggish rumblings from the UK, before things ever got too noodly or over the top! There's an organic quality to most of the tunes that makes the music way more than pop – cool use of keyboards and larger concepts of sound, including some great orchestrations – yet there's also a focus to the presentation that really keeps things on track, and which makes the Italian language lyrics somehow have this really universal sort of appeal. Titles include "Id", "Buon Giorno Amico Mio", "Un Brutto Sogno", "Jo", "Padre E Figlio", "Giochi D'Amore", and "Fine". CD features lots of bonus tracks, many from earlier singles – an additional 11 tracks that include "Tu Pretendi", "Floating", "Da Domani", "Auschwitz", "Hey Ragazzo", and "Nel Cuore Nell Anima Uomo".

New Milton NascimentoUma Travessia – 50 Anos De Carreira Ao Vivo (DVD) ... DVD
Universal (Brazil), 2013. New Copy .... $26.99
One of the best albums we've heard from Milton Nascimento in years – and a really beautiful live performance that pays tribute to his 5 decades in music! The performance has a crisp, personal quality we don't always hear in Milton's studio work these days – and the band worked with Nascimento on the arrangements, which have just the right mix of complexity and intimacy to recall his corner club years – and still bring out all the best aspects in his vocals. Of course, it helps that most of the tunes here are classics – and even later numbers seem to benefit from the old school handling of the set – as you'll hear on titles that include "Anima", "Lagrimas Do Sul", "Cais", "Vera Cruz", "Para Lennon E McCartney", "Cancaoes E Momentos", "Travessia", "Raca", "Maria Maria", and "Amor De Indio".

VariousBeleza Tropical – Brazil Classics Vol 1 (with download) ... LP
Luaka Bop, 1989. New Copy Gatefold (reissue).... $18.99 19.98
The first-ever record in the Luaka Bop legacy – a massive collection of Brazilian grooves that still serves as one of the best introductions to the music we can think of! Most of the artists here are the bigger names of the MPB generation of the 70s – but many are still very under-represented in the US market – which makes the collection of work here completely essential. The styles range from samba soul of Jorge Ben to the lyrical poetry of Caetano Veloso to the soulful drama of Milton Nascimento – and titles include "Ponta De Lanca Africano" and "Fio Varavilha" by Jorge Ben, "Cacada" by Chico Buarque, "Quilombo O El Dorado Negro" and "So Quero Um Xodo" by Gilberto Gil, "Quiexa" and "O Leaozinho" by Caetano Veloso, "Sonho Meu" by Maria Bethania & Gal Costa, "Caixa De Sol" by Nazare Pereira, and "Anima" by Milton Nascimento.

New Aldo Romano & Paolo FresuCanzoni ... CD
Enja (Germany), 1992. New Copy .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A warm little set from drummer Aldo Romano and trumpeter Paolo Fresu – working here in spare, spacious ways that groove along gently! The group here's a quartet – with piano from Franco D'Andrea and bass from Furio Di Castri – and the session features a fair bit of Italian compositions, recast with a jazzy glow – one that comes especially from Fresu's great muted work on trumpet, and D'Andrea's simple but well-chosen notes on the piano. Titles include "Anima E Core", "O Sole Mio", "Torna A Surriento", "Sapore Di Sale", "Munasterio A Santa Chiara", "Come Prima", "Senza Fine", and "T'Ho Voluto Bene". CD

New Mary Lou WilliamsBlack Christ Of The Andes ... CD
Smithsonian Folkways/Saba, 1963. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A landmark album – and one of the best records you'll ever find by Mary Lou Williams! The record's a mixture of jazz and spiritual themes, and it features Mary Lou's piano set in some super-hip jazz arrangements that include players like Grant Green, Budd Johnson, Larry Gales, Melba Liston, Ben Tucker, and Percy Heath. The bass and piano work is amazing, and many tracks have a dark groove that's very subtle, but very compelling. About half the tunes feature hip choral vocalizing – in the mode of some of the Donald Byrd or Max Roach albums from the same time – mostly handled by the group of Howard Roberts. Includes the classic groover "A Grand Nite For Swinging", plus "A Fungus Amongus", "Anima Christi", "Miss DD", "The Devil", "It Ain't Necessarily So", and "My Blue Heaven". Great stuff all around – and even better than we're describing it! CD adds some extra tracks to the original recdording, too – with titles that include "Koolbonga", "Forty Five Degree Angle", "Nicole", "Chunka Lunka", and "Praise The Lord". CD

Abril Cultural (Brazil), Late 60s/1970s/1980s. New Copy 20CDs .... Out Of Stock
Every great album from Milton Nascimento – packaged here together in one sweet little set – and all done as cool special sets that contain individual book-style jackets too! The style is amazing – better than any other Brazilian box set like this we've seen – with each individual album done like one of the Abril Cultural book and CD sets – a hardcover case, lots of pages inside, with a wealth of notes and photos – plus all the essential music that makes these records so wonderful! The set begins with Nascimento's earliest albums – and runs through his excellent work for EMI/Odeon in the 70s – and even includes some great 80s albums too. Includes the full albums Milton Nascimento (1967), "Milton Nascimento (1969), Milton (1970), Courage, Clube Da Esquina, Milagre Dos Peixes, Milagre Dos Piexes Ao Vivo, Minas, Geraes, Cacador De Mim, Journey To Dawn, Milton (1976), Sentinela, Milton Nascimento Ao Vivo, Missa Dos Quilombos, A Barca Dos Amantes, Encontros E Espedidas, Anima, and Clube Da Esquina 2.

New Aksak MaboulOnze Danses Pour Combattre La Migraine ... CD
Crammed (Belgium), 1977. New Copy .... $12.99 13.99
An incredible record – unlike anything else we can think of, and one of those records that's had a fantastic life of its own in the past 25 years! The set was first recorded with production help from Marc Moulin in 1977, then released in 1981 as one of the first records on the legendary Crammed Discs label – and it's got a sound that blends together world music, electronics, jazz, and minimalism – in a true genre-busting mode that defies description! At one level, there's an artfulness here that's undeniable – but at another, the record has a spare, simple sense that's almost ethnographic – and the short tunes throughout ring out as a strange document of Europe between the cracks in the late 70s. Instrumentation includes saxes, Fender Rhodes, electronics, and a host of global percussion – and titles include "Mercredi Matin", "Animaux Velpeau", "Son Of L'Idiot", "Ciobane", "Comme On A Dit", "Mastoul Alakefak", "Vapona Not Glue", and "Fausto Coppi Arrive".

EMI/Real Gone, 1960s. New Copy 5 CDs & T Shirt .... $84.99
A totally great set of work by The Animals – a special package that brings together each individual album issued in the US during their Mickie Most years, plus 16 bonus tracks as well, all with new remastering, new notes, and a limited edition t-shirt as well! The group here have a great rough sound – much more bluesy than in later years, which turns out to be a perfect setting for the young Eric Burdon – whose vocals soar out wonderfully over a mix of original tunes and remakes of American classics by folks like Ray Charles, John Lee Hooker, Sam Cooke, Bo Diddley, and others! Producer Mickie Most really knows how to keep the right sort of edge on the tunes – lots of raw power in the instrumentation, especially the Hammond and guitar – and a stark, dark quality to Eric's vocals that went onto become the stuff of legend. This package features the full albums I Just Wanna Make Love To You, The Animals, The Animals On Tour, Animal Tracks, and Animalization – plus lots of bonus tracks, a t-shirt, more notes, and a special box to hold everything too.

Paulo BaguncaPaulo Bagunca E A Tropa Maldita ... CD
Continental/Discos Mariposa (Argentina), 1973. New Copy .... $9.99
A Brazilian underground classic from the early 70s – mindblowing work that mixes heavy percussion with lots of guitar – in a style that's samba soul one minute, but heavier rock the next! There's a bit of a Jorge Ben influence going on at times – particularly in the way the record uses quickly-strummed acoustic guitar next to the earthy rhythms – but the overall sound is also a bit more fragile at times, and rougher around the edges, especially at its most expressive moments. But that quality only serves to make the album more striking – an instantly captivating set that needs no previous cultural knowledge at all! Really tremendous stuff – the kind of lost treasure that will have you scratching your head, but loving it at the same time! Titles include "Apelo", "Grinfa Louca", "A Mente", "Tramba", "Madalena", "Mensageiro", "Cristina", "Olhar Animal", and "Microfones Metalicos". CD

The jazzy, soulful, reflective, bouncing music is entirely produced by DJ Chief Xcel and features cameos by Lyrics Born and Lateef from Latyrx on two separate tracks ("Do This My Way" and "Smithzonian Institute Of Rhyme", respectively.)

Ed Bogas/Ray Shanklin/VariousFritz The Cat – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Fantasy, Mid 70s. Very Good- Gatefold .... $24.99
The funky freaky soundtrack to Ralph Bakshi's animated feature Fritz The Cat – a really messed-up little film based around the original character created by Robert Crumb! Like the movie, the album's got a very skittish kind of feel – leaping from one genre to the next with each different track – but mostly featuring some older numbers from the Fantasy catalog, plus some key newer tracks for the set that are nice and funky! Original tunes include the bad-rapping "Fritz The Cat", by Ed Bogas and The Watson Sisters – plus the instrumentals "Duke's Theme" and "Bertha's Theme" by Ray Shanklin, and "The Riot" and "Winston" by Ed Bogas. Also includes "Love Light Of Mine" by The Watson Sisters, "Black Talk" by Charles Earland, and "Mamblues" by Cal Tjader. LP, Vinyl record album

Fiorenzo CarpiLe Avventure Di Pinocchio (3CD set) ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1972. New Copy 3CD .... $28.99
One of the weirdest versions of Pinocchio you'll ever see – not the animated cartoon by Disney, but a strange live action production for 70s Italian TV! The music here is surprisingly great – and comes off with a flair that's maybe even more complicated than the images on the screen – a mix of surprisingly sensitive orchestrations with a few lighter melodies that recall some of the work of Nino Rota – but mixed more with some darker 70s elements, as in some of the later Fellini films. This massive 3CD set features a stunning 107 tracks in all – not just the original album, but dozens and dozens of alternate takes, and rare TV cues as well – making for a musical package that may well be more stunning than the strange show itself!

CybotronEnter Cybotron (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Fantasy/Decision, 1983. New Copy .... $11.99 15.99
A mindblowing debut from Cybotron – one of the most unusual groups to ever hail from Detroit – and that's saying a hell of a lot, given the musical legacy of the city! Cybotron have a sound that's starkly electronic, and a huge influence on later electro, hip hop, techno, and house – served up here as a spare, fuzzy approach to funk – but with lots of the colder touches you'd find from post-punk imports at the time! The blend is quite unique, and even more unusual given the fact that the trio were working in virtual obscurity on the Detroit scene – as an early project from the legendary Juan Atkins, with guitarist Jon-5, and the mysterious electronician 3070! There's more funk here than most of the group's electro contemporaries – but the sound is still nicely cold in all the right parts too – and titles include the seminal "Clear", which was years ahead of its time – plus "Cosmic Cars", "Cosmic Raindance", "Industrial Lies", "The Line", and "Alleys Of Your Mind". CD reissue also features some nice bonus cuts – including "Clear (Jose Animal Diaz rmx)", "Cosmic Cars (Detroit style mix)", "Techno City (voc)", "Techno City (inst)", "R-9 (inst)", and "Eden (voc)".

World Pacific, 1963. Very Good+ .... $7.99
Quite an interesting album – one that pairs the koto work of Kimio Eto with the flute of Bud Shank. Shank's incredible in this setting – really moving away from most of his jazz-based work, and playing with shades and tones that we've never heard before, a perfect accompaniment to the gentle koto work of Eto. Tracks are long, and the record moves way past an obvious "jazz meets Japan" style. Titles include "Haru No Umi", "Tanima No Suisha", "Yorokobi", "March", and "Soyo Kaze". LP, Vinyl record album

Nothing canned here – as the sound, style, and groove of the record is as fresh and freaky as the classic image on the cover! The riffing rhythms get going right from the start – some amazing lines from a rhythm combo that includes Joe Beck on guitar, Herb Bushler on bass, Jim Madison on drums, and the mighty Ray Mantilla on percussion – adding in these extra changes and fills that really get the tunes moving wonderfully – providing a perfect platform for Joe Farrell's wonderful work on tenor, soprano, baritone, and flute! The sax lines are as angular as the rhythms – tight, choppy, and completely funky – no wonder the record's a CTI classic that folks have dug for years! Tracks are all nice and long – and titles include "Canned Funk", "Animal", and "Spoken Silence". LP, Vinyl record album

Maynard's solos still have that blaring quality that marks him as a dominant showman, but he also gives ample room to some of the other soloists, especially on the longer tracks.

Jim FordHarlan County ... CD
Sundown/Light In The Attic, 1969. New Copy .... $12.99
Damn! Here's a record we wish we'd been treasuring for years and years, but it came into our lives more than 40 years after it was recorded, released and largely forgotten – a masterpiece of funky country rock & soul from Jim Ford! '69's Harlan County is a record that brings so many styles into the mix that it could make you dizzy if it wasn't all so perfectly grounded by gritty southern roots, R&B and swampy rock – plus Ford's vocals, which range from wildly bugged out to richly emotional. We hear he once dated Bobbie Gentry and that makes some creative sense, given the blend of country roots and worldly smarts. You can actually compare him to lots of folks. He is as omnivorous of country, rock and southern soul in all its forms as Charlie Rich, but Ford's nowhere nearly as restrained by convention – and he's drawing from deeper wells of funk and soul. Tony Joe White comes to mind, too, as do a number of Muscle Shoals soul singers of the era. That said, Ford's his own animal! We came in late, but we'll love this record for the remainder of our time on earth. Some famous fellows played on the sessions, but we won't name them, 'cuz Ford deserves all credit from us. Includes "Harlan County", "I'm Gonna Make Her Love Me", "Dr Handy's Dandy Candy", "Working My Way To LA", "Spoonful", "To Make My Life Beautiful" and more. CD

A really evocative little album from Bill Frisell – and that's saying a lot, given the rest of his work! The music was all written at a ranch in Big Sur – and has this spacious, airy sort of feel – one that draws on Bill's earlier style of guitar, but also inflects it with a slight Americanist tone – in ways that echo some of Charlie Haden or Pat Metheny's projects with a similar landscape ethos. The group retains a very ethereal feel – and features Eyvind Kang on viola, Hank Roberts on cello, Jenny Scheinman on violin, and Rudy Royston on drums – on titles that include "Hawks", "Cry Alone", "Animals", "Highway 1", "Gather Good Things", "The Big One", and "Going To California".

You can hear the early touch of the styles that would wander too strongly into the wrong territory a decade later – but here, things are all pretty darn fresh – wrapped around song themes that feel like very new ones for Gabriel, in ways that almost have you feeling him pick and choose the topics as the record moves on. Production is tight, but never too uptight – and titles include "On The Air", "DIY", "Exposure", "Animal Magic", "Flotsam & Jetsam", "Perspective", and "White Shadow". LP, Vinyl record album

The long-teased, finally delivered joint full length from Jay-Z and Kanye West. It's impossible to consider the music purely on its own terms given the outsized personalities and absolutely gigantic presences of both – which makes it pretty fascinating. It's definitely not on the level of the best solo albums by either force, but it's probably a whole lot better than it's being dismissed as in some circles. Bottom line – it's worth picking up. We'll see how history treats it. Includes "No Church In The Wild" feat Frank Ocean, "Lift Off" with Beyonce, "Ni**as In paris", the single "Otis" with that reanimated Otis Redding vocal, "Gotta Have It", "New Day", "That's My B**ch", "Why I Love Yu" feat Mr Hudson and more.

Atlantic (Japan), 1962. New Copy .... $10.99
One of the hippest albums that John Lewis ever recorded – and a set that's noteworthy for the presence of two European modernists! Most of the record features Lewis in a wonderful group with trobmonist Albert Mangelsdorff – who gets plenty of space here to play in his stepping, stuttering style – one of the more angular approaches to trombone in the 60s, and a nice contrast to the piano of Lewis. The group shared by both features Karl Theodor Geier on bass and Silvije Glojarnic on drums – and titles include "Animal Dance", "Set Em Up", "Monday In Milan", and "Why Are You Blue". But possibly even better than these sides is the album's one track by the amazing Zagreb Jazz Quartet – a group that features Bosko Petrovic on vibes, in a style that's somewhat inspired by the MJQ, but a fair bit darker too! The group play the wonderful "Ornaments" – awash in blue tones and richly chromatic vibes. CD

The Saicos bring a sense of menace to these tunes – with a guitar tone touched with an eerie vibe, and lead vocals that are really piercing and gravelly in that instills this primordial edge that needs to be heard to be believed – but that balance it off with some moddish, British invasion grooves, too.

Prestige/4 Men With Beards, 1956. New Copy (reissue).... $14.99 18.98
One of the best early albums from the legendary Moondog – a set that got wider circulation than his first few releases, and really helped expand his reach beyond New York City! Moondog's still at his simple best here – working in a blend of rhythmic percussion, stringed instruments, flute, and other rootsy instrumentation – all with echoes of Eastern styles, but served in a way that definitely has more of a touch of American exotica! All numbers are played by small groups – or even solo by Moondog – and any vocalizations take on almost an instrumental feel – sliding in alongside sound effects, animal noises, and other obscure utterings. The album's almost the art world equivalent of Martin Denny – but has a lot more depth than easy kitsch – and is still tremendously powerful stuff all these years later! Titles include "Caribea", "Big Cat", "Frog Bog", "To A Sea Horse", "Surf Session" and "Trees Against The Sky". LP, Vinyl record album

Moondog's still at his simple best here – working in a blend of rhythmic percussion, stringed instruments, flute, and other rootsy instrumentation – all with echoes of Eastern styles, but served in a way that definitely has more of a touch of American exotica! All numbers are played by small groups – or even solo by Moondog – and any vocalizations take on almost an instrumental feel – sliding in alongside sound effects, animal noises, and other obscure utterings. The album's almost the art world equivalent of Martin Denny – but has a lot more depth than easy kitsch – and is still tremendously powerful stuff all these years later! Titles include "Caribea", "Big Cat", "Frog Bog", "To A Sea Horse", "Surf Session" and "Trees Against The Sky". This reissue is the original version of the record that was also issued as Moondog on Prestige. LP, Vinyl record album

Kash Roc, 2013. New Copy 2LP .... $18.99 20.98
The latest audio dispensary system from Oh No – who's carved a pretty solid niche as an unpredictable, indefatigable hip hop conceptualist – this one a suite of tracks inspired by snake oil style newspaper, radio and television advertisements from decades past! Oh No is on the beats and production here on a mix of thematic instros and vocal tracks with guests Declaime & Georgia Anne Muldrow, Souls Of Mischief, Blu & Med, Gangrene partner Alchemist, Rapsody & Psalm One and others.

Ata Tak/Bureau B (Germany), 1983. New Copy (reissue).... $21.99
The 3rd album from Pyrolator – a wonderfully whimsical set that blends together electronics and animal sounds! The feel here is every bit as playful as that on Pyrolator's first 2 albums, but even more tightly controlled – with a strong ear for the "song" in a sound – as recorded bits are extrapolated out using simple, pre-sampler means – into genius mini-symphonies that almost work like audio cartoons! The record's a gem that we've loved for years – and titles include "Rush Hour In Singapore", "Hal's Dream", "Blick Durch Eine Zeitlupe", "Passage To Melilla", "Im Zoo", "Grobe Welt Kleine Wlet", and "Am Morgen & Ein Spaziergang".

RCA, 1974. Very Good- .... $8.99
Lou Reed at his mid 70s live peak! Volumes have already been and will continue to be written about Lou's output in the 70s, and rightly so. This set is particularly amazing in that it follows the artful highpoint/financial failure that is Berlin – so Lou is doing the rock & roll star thing here, kinda given the people what they want in a way. What's so amazing here is that it doesn't feel like a cash-in, it's crazy good and geniunely passionate stuff! The blazing guitars don't hurt, nor does the fact the the set is heavy with Velvets-era faves. Includes "Intro/Sweet Jane", "Heroin", "White Light/White Heat", "Lady Day" and "Rock N' Roll".

Horace SilverTotal Response – United States Of Mind Phase 2 ... LP
Blue Note, 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue).... $9.99
Horace Silver at his most righteous – stepping out here in the amazing Phase 2 of his United States Of The Mind series – with some heavy vocals from the great Andy Bey! The grooves are more complicated than Silver was laying down a few years before – yet still equally soulful – and in addition to vocals by Be, and his sister Salome, the group also features Silver on electric piano, plus Cecil Bridgewater on trumpet & fluegelhorn, Harold Vick on tenor sax, and Bob Cranshaw on bass, Richie Resnicoff on guitar and Mickey Roker on drums – a sweet little combo who really open up with a hip, righteous groove! The titles probably give more information about the tracks than we ever could, and include "Acid, Pot, Or Pills", "Soul Searchin", "What Kind Of Animal Am I", "I've Had A Little Talk", and "Big Business".

Bruno SpoerriTeddy Bear/Lilith ... LP
Finders Keepers/Cache Cache (UK), 1978. New Copy .... $22.99
Two rare soundtracks from the quirky Bruno Spoerri – both of them a very cool blend of jazzy reeds and lots of electric touches! Teddy Bear is from the early 80s, and is one of the later records we've heard from Spoerri – a set that definitely bears the pedigree of its time, through cool use of Lyricon, Prophet, and Emulator keyboards! Bruno often blows his sax into the keys, then processes the reedlines in a very cool way – with a style that's more soulful than usual keyboard styles of the time, given the acoustic roots of the sounds – yet which still has a great 80s vibe overall. Things are almost in the offbeat style of some of the instrumentals from the German AtaTak scene of the time – and titles include "Too Much Smell", "The Silliest Song", "Reanimation Of A Filmmaker", "Small Talk", "The Arrest Of Groucho", and "Baby Baby". Lilith is from a few years before, and has a more conventional 70s approach – great electric piano lines over tight rhythms, with Bruno handling both tenor and Lyricon – on tunes that mix sound library funk with some of the weirder, more offbeat sounds you might know from other Spoerri soundtracks. Titles include "Singing In The Dark", "Winding Down", "The Dance", "Prepare For The Show", "Train", "Going To Work", and "Fanfare". LP, Vinyl record album

Cedar WaltonAnimation/Soundscapes ... CD
Columbia/Expansion (UK), 1978/1980. New Copy .... $16.99
A long-overdue reissue – both of Cedar Walton's fusion albums for Columbia – back to back on a single CD! Animation is one of Cedar Walton's mid 70s funky jazz efforts – acoustic keys often traded for electric piano, grooving with a funky bigger band, almost in a Ramsey Lewis mode – a really great shift that makes the record a nice change from the usual Walton groove! Cedar's a lot busier on the keys than Ramsey was at the time, though – not as kicked-back Fender Rhodes as he is keeping up a tight and soulful fusion groove. The approach is quite different from Walton's other albums of earlier years, but actually works quite well – and the album's a tasty set of smoother soul and funk-infused numbers, with a hint of Brazilian touches as well! Tracks include "Another Star", "Charmed Circle", "Jacob's Ladder", "Precious Mountain", "If It Could Happen", and "Ala Eduardo". Soundscapes is brilliant work from Cedar Walton – a wonderful bit of soulful fusion from the crucially overlooked late 70s years of Columbia Jazz. The album's got a blend of soul and jazz that's similar to work at the time by Bobby Hutcherson or Freddie Hubbard – occasional vocals, larger lusher production, and a style that was really well suited to bringing together the best of fusion and soul, without resorting to tricks or gimmicks. The album's filled with really wonderful cuts that are completely unlike most of Walton's other work – and which show him to be an amazing talent in the soul end of the spectrum, not just in the soul jazz one that we're used to. Tunes are wonderful, arrangements are brilliant – and the album manages to be smooth without losing any depth. Titles include the great groover "Latin America", plus "Warm To The Touch", "NPS", "Sixth Avenue", and "Naturally". CD

X Ray PopDing Dong Disques – Ding Dong Songs Part 1 – The Records 1984 to 1989 ... LP
Finders Keepers/Cache Cache (UK), Mid 80s. New Copy .... $22.99
Beautiful work from X Ray Pop – a totally wonderful French group from the 80s, and one with the same mix of female vocals and spare electronics that would later surface more strongly with Stereolab! These guys are kind of a bridge between that group and the early 80s experiments of Brit groups like Young Marble Giants – working here in a style that's a lot warmer than most post-punk material, but still equally spare – a great stripped-down approach to electronic pop, but without any of the darkness that genre usually embraces! This sweet LP version of the release features material that was originally issued only on small-label vinyl releases – with tracks that include "La Mort", "Pam Pam", "Psychedelik Dolls", "Rana", "Ding Dong", "Petit Animal", and "Rock N Popoff".

Big Beat (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy .... $15.99
A mighty musical tribute to the famous Good Vibrations record store – born in the heady Belfast scene of the 70s, and home to some great Irish punk on its own label! Yet the music here is not just punk, but also the sounds that inspired the store from the years before – a bit of reggae, folk, and other styles mixed into a really rich brew of music – all hand-picked by David Holmes, a longtime fan and patron of the store! The package is way different than just another punk scene collection, or any sort of musical soundtrack too – and the 24 track CD also features notes on each tune by store/label owner Terri Hooley.

Strut (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy 2 CDs .... $15.99 16.99
A much-needed look at the confusing world of grooves from Haiti – a scene that's always been accessible to most listeners in the US, but never with the kind of focus and direction we need! Haitian records are often a bit perplexing to our crate-digging ears – they look great on the cover, usually feature a hip lineup of cats with jazz instruments, but often move into territory that's either too sweet or too loose – not the kind of heavier sounds we were expecting. Yet this set really brings the right sort of focus to Haitian music – and uses the Strut Records approach that's been tuned towards African and South American grooves in the past – all to pull out the funkiest, jazziest, grooviest tunes from the 60s and 70s. The package has a great set of notes that really illustrate the scene and styles behind the music on the disc – and titles include "Ce Pas" by Tabou Combo, "Pile Ou Face" by Les Loups Noirs, "Ti Garcon" by Ibo Combo, "Choc Vikings" by Les Vikings, "Ti Machine" by Les Animateurs, "Cote Moune Yo" by Super Jazz Des Jeunes, "Cochon St Antoine" by Ti Paris, "L'Artibonite" by Les Freres Dejean, "Suspann" by Caribbean Sextet, "Line" by Bossa Combo, and "Ti Lu Lupe" by Scorpio Universal.

One of Jorge Ben's greatest albums – a groundbreaking blend of samba and soul that forever went onto transform the face of Brazilian music! The record works off the groove set down by Jorge's earlier hit "Mas Que Nada" (which appears on another LP), and takes the blend of bossa, samba, and jazz, and infuses it with a sense of folksy soul delivered by Jorge's raspy vocals and acoustic guitar work. The combination of styles works perfectly – and every track on the album sparkles with a sense of excitement and new musical discovery that will probably blow away most of the recent records you've bought for your collection! Titles include "Nena Nana", "Espero Por Voce", "Nao Desanima, Joao", "Carnaval Triste", "Gimbo", "Capoeira", and "Anjo Azul". CD

Nicole Mitchell Black Earth EnsembleIntergalactic Beings (Dusty Groove exclusive edition – with bonus art print) ... LP
2014. New Copy .... Around April 19, 2014
Mindblowing sounds from Chicago flute player Nicole Mitchell – a set of work inspired by the science fiction writings of Octavia Butler – with a striking style to match! Although the music has some arch qualities that live up to the darkness of Butler's writings, the performance here is also still mostly acoustic – in the mode we're used to from Mitchell's Black Earth group – but with odd tones and weird bits of phrasing that keep have us checking the notes to figure out the different instruments! The approach is a bit like the early cosmic visions of Sun Ra – especially when Mitchell hits more spiritual and rhythmic moments – and the well-matched ensemble of players features Nicole on flute, David Boykin on tenor and bass clarinet, David Young on trumpet and srali thom, Renee Baker on violin, Tomeka Reid on cello, Josh Abrams on bass, Jeff Parker on guitar, and Avreeayl Ra on percussion. Mankwe Ndosi sings just a bit on the record – and titles include "Dripping Matter", "Web Of Hope", "Fields Of Possibility", "Resisting Entanglement", "The Inevitable", and "The Ooli Moves".

The first-ever Numero foray into the world of cinema – and a mindblowing collection of short films by Al Jarnow, whose credits include important early animations for Sesame Street, and some even cooler experimental work on his own! The pieces here are all pretty short – the DVD features 45 films in all – and they often involve odd geometric patterns shifting and changing – a quality that almost links the the material to the mid-century animations of Harry Smith, or Charles and Ray Eames! But given that many of these films were done in the 70s, there's some funkier elements at play too – and as usual, the folks at Numero have done a great job of illuminating the work with their thoughtful and detailed notes. The package features a DVD with 45 films, plus a bonus book too – and special features include a complete film index, a documentary on Jarnow's creative process, essays and ephemera, and special playlists for kids and adults!

Seun Anikulapo Kuti returns with another strorming set of neo classic Afro Funk in the great tradition of his father – once again fronting the incredible Egypt 80 group! It's remarkable stuff that finds Seun – the youngest son of Fela – standing up as a visionary talent. He's not only living up to an immense legacy, but moving forward with it in ways that will absolutely stand the test of time. The insistent rhythms and intense energy of the Egypt 80 group – led by Lekan Animashaun – are Afrobeat perfection, with Seun's forthright vocals out front of it. But their approach here is anything but a retread of family glories. The songs are urgent and fierce, and there are subtle modern florishes in the production – thanks in part, no doubt, to co-producer Brian Eno.

Polydor/Universal (Brazil), 1972/1974/1976. New Copy 3 CDs .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Three of the greatest albums from Jorge Mautner – really overlooked work from the Brazilian scene of the 70s, presented here in a great 3CD package! First up is Para Iluminar A Cidade – a masterpiece from the Brazilian underground of the post-Tropicalia years – one of the first albums by Jorge Mautner, one of Brazil's most unique talents at the time! Although Jorge's main instrument is the violin, he lays low on it for much of the record – singing amidst rootsy rhythms, folkloric instrumentation, and an overall post-sixties sense of righteous empowerment. Tracks are spare and jagged, but never unpleasant – and the record has a brittle quality that makes it as striking today as it must have been back in the early 70s. Tracks include "Anjo Infernal", "Super Mulher", "Olhar Bestial", "Sapo Cururu", and "Estrela Da Noite" – plus the English language tracks "Sheridan Square" and "From Faraway", which have a feel that almost reminds us of work on Caetano Veloso's Transa album. The self-titled Jorge Mautner album features production work by Gilberto Gil, who also plays guitar on the record, and gives it a very Gil-esque early 70s feel! Joyce's husband Tutty Moreno plays drums, and the set also includes electric violin work by Mautner, which gives some tracks a nice spacey feel. The set's a cool mix of rock, funk, and jazzy production – and titles include "Pipoca A Meia Noite", "Guzzy Muzzy", "Rock Da TV", "Samba Dos Animais", "O Relogio Quebrou", and "Matematica Do Desejo". Mil E Uma Noites De Bagada has a vibe that's almost upbeat, but which also has some of the darker currents of Jorge Mautner's earlier music too – a balance that's struck well by Perinho Albuquerque, who plays guitar and directs the arrangements – often with the same flair he brought to bigger 70s projects with artists like Caetano Veloso, Gal Costa, Chico Buarque, and Maria Bethania! A few tunes show his proclivity for a groove – a gentle funkiness that makes for a nice change with Jorge's vocals – almost like the shift Caetano made on his Bicho record. Yet like that one, there's plenty of weird, offbeat moments here too – on tracks that include "Rainha Do Egiot", "Samba Jambo", "Ai Ai Ai", "Txim Plam", "Aeroplanos", and "O Som Do Meu Violino". The first album also features three bonus tracks – "Relaxa Meu Bem Relaxa", "Planeta Dos Macacos", and "Rock Da Barata (live)". CD

The record's really a cut above for their generation – an expansive effort that hangs together with a bit of a concept, and which interweaves strands of rock, folk, and a bit of jazz – yet also a record that has a lot more polish than other efforts of its type, and which trades a bit of psychedelic indulgence for a tighter focus that really lets the best tunes sparkle wonderfully! Production is great – clear, but trippy at the same time – and Randy California's guitar work has never sounded better. Titles include "Nature's Way", "Animal Zoo", "Love Has Found A Way", "Mr Skin", "Soldier", "Street Worm", and "Space Child". LP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow label stereo pressing. Cover has light ringwear.)

New Banana Splits/BeaglesWe're The Banana Splits/Here Come The Beagles ... CD
Hollywood, Late 60s. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Way more than just another kiddie soundtrack – or an album for a childish TV show – as the set's a surprisingly groovy little record, almost Sunshine Pop in its best moments! We're not sure about the nature of the players or the singers – but arranger Jack Eskew put the whole thing together with a bouncy, bubbly groove that rivals the best pop-psych work of the late 60s on labels like Kapp or Uni – right down to the perfect combination of fuzzy guitars and organ in the instrumentation. Titles include "This Spot", "I'm Gonna Find A Cave", "We're The Banana Splits", "In New Orleans", "Toy Piano Medley", "Don't Go Away Go Go Girl", and the classic "Tra La La Song". CD also features bonus Splits songs – "The Very First Kid On My Block", "The Beautiful Calliope", "Let Me Remember You Smiling", and "Soul". The CD also features the album Here Comes The Beagles – from a very Splits-like show that features another group of singing animals! The Beagles aren't The Beatles, but they definitely have a strong Brit Invasion feel in their music – a UK way with a melody that's mixed with a few sunny Cali pop touches too. Very 60s, very groovy, and way better than just a kiddie record – with tunes that include "What More Can I Do", "Be The Captain", "I Wanna Capture You", "Indian Love Dance", and "You Satisfy". CD

New Peter Brotzmann/Han Bennink/Fred Van HoveFMP 0130 ... CD
Atavistic/Unheard Music Series, 1973. Used .... Out Of Stock
Another amazing set of way out jazz, and atonal sound bursts from Brotzmann – and another long lost recording once again available thanks to the Unheard Music Series. This set has the legendary scorcher working in a trio on sax and clarinet, Han Bennick on drums and all sorts of odd percussion bits, and Fred Van Hove on celeste and piano. The key tension of many of Brotzmann's recordings from the era relied on the legendary saxophonist blowing the living hell out of his instrument, while the rest of his crew at the given time struggled to stay in the same orbit. FMP 130 has a bit of a different approach, in that all of the crazed, complicated, and dissonant sound bursts seem to be based on a stop/start dynamic. The group seems to be enjoying themselves, too, with lots of weird, borderline comical sounds approximating animal calls, rolling piano lines that seem to be ironic riffs on boogie woogie and rock & roll playing, and odd tonal shifts. It may not be for everybody, but there's plenty of rewards for the adventurous! 10 tracks including "For Donaueschingen Ever", "Nr. 7", "Gere Bij", "Konzert Fur 2 Klarinetten", and others. CD

New Cabaret VoltaireCrackdown (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Mute, 1983. New Copy Gatefold .... Out Of Stock
Lots of layers of sound here – that raw electronic style of early Cabaret Voltaire, mixed with an increasing interest both in found sound samples, including some cool spoken bits – and in elements from a growing global soundscape as well! There's some unusual undercurrents to the music that almost reflect the Brian Eno/David Byrne experiments of the time – with elements that are much more exotic than before. And there's also occasional points that get a bit more tuneful – as if Mallinder or Kirk have finally decided they need a bit of vocals to hook folks into the music – although still at a level that's far from the electro pop of some of their contemporaries. Titles include "Over & Over", "Why Kill Time When You Can Kill Yourself", "Haiti", "Crackdownh", "Animation", and "In The Shadows". CD features bonus tracks – "Diskono", "Theme From Doublevision", and "Moscow Badge Of Evil". CD

New CerroneCerrone 3 – Supernature ... LP
Cotillion, 1977. Used .... Out Of Stock
The height of French disco – a huge worldwide hit for Cerrone, a nutty bit of space disco that actually holds up pretty darn well over the years! The guy's not really a looker – and the strange "animal operation" cover almost makes this look like a prog rock album – which is where Cerrone probably got his inspiration for the incredible keyboard work on the set – but the record's a killer bit of club that went onto influence generations to come – and is arguably one of Cerrone's best moments ever! Includes the classic "Supernature", a catchy disco groover you'll recognize instantly – plus the tracks "Love Is Here", "Love Is The Answer", and "Sweet Drums". LP, Vinyl record album

New Woody CunninghamNever Say Never ... CD
Instinct, 2000. Used .... Out Of Stock
Smooth and soulful work from Woody Cunningham – known to most as the vocalist for Kleeer during the 80s, but a great singer who's really mellowed wonderfully with age! The album's a quiet storm masterpiece – slow and moody backings with a very wide bottom, set up just right for Woody's warm vocals. There's plenty of traces of the old days in the style of the song, but overall, the sound's a lot richer, more sophisticated, and shows a tremendous amount of growth for Woody. Titles include "Highways Of My Life", "Forgive Me", "Animal", "Tonight", "You Fooled Me", "Love Is Taking Over", and "Never Say Never". CD

New Michel LegrandLe Baron De Munchausen/La Flute A 6 Schtroumphs ... CD
Universal (France), Late 70s. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Some of the most whimsical music ever penned by Michel Legrand – music for two animated films from the late 70s! First up is Legrand's excellent score for a Baron Munchausen film – handled with these surprisingly deep tones at times, yet still mixed with a sense of fable-like wonder, too – a bit like his landmark score for Peau D'Ane from a decade before. Like that one, there's some nice sing-song moments here, and some more serious elements that balance things out beautifully – and trust us, the whole thing is way better than any US animated scores that were coming out at the time! Titles include "Sur La Route De Trukesban", "Recit Du Baron", "Theme De L'Aventure", "Chanson De La Sirene", and the playful vocal tune "Chanson Du Baron". Next up is music scored for an early Smurfs film – a very odd setting for Legrand, but one that he still handles beautifully! There's a handful of serious tunes, mixed in with music that's a lot more playful and cartoony – including a number of strange vocal songs, sung in goofy voices. Titles include "Hyme Au Travail", "La Flute A Six Schtroumphs", "Le Ballet De Torchesac", "Le Roi E La Flute", and "La Fete". CD also features one cool bonus track – "Building A Bird House" – from a TV special called Michel's Mixed-Up Musical Bird! CD

New Modern Jazz QuartetConcert In Japan Vol 1 ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1966. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
An excellent Japanese performance from the Modern Jazz Quartet – and a set that was issued in a bit of a lull during their 60s American years for Atlantic Records – which makes it even more important as a key part of their catalog at the time! The 1966 date has the combo in fine form – and almost stepping out with a bit of added soulfulness, in ways that echo some of the styles that Milt Jackson was exploring on his own at the time, and which seem to be brought back to the group! Milt's vibes are wonderful – ringing out with a great sense of pride and presence that may well go beyond earlier MJQ material – and titles on this first volume include "Really True Blues", "The Cylinder", "Midsommer", "Animal Dance", and "For Someone I Love".

New PyrolatorWunderland (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Ata Tak/Bureau B (Germany), 1983. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
The 3rd album from Pyrolator – a wonderfully whimsical set that blends together electronics and animal sounds! The feel here is every bit as playful as that on Pyrolator's first 2 albums, but even more tightly controlled – with a strong ear for the "song" in a sound – as recorded bits are extrapolated out using simple, pre-sampler means – into genius mini-symphonies that almost work like audio cartoons! The record's a gem that we've loved for years – and titles include "Rush Hour In Singapore", "Hal's Dream", "Blick Durch Eine Zeitlupe", "Passage To Melilla", "Im Zoo", "Grobe Welt Kleine Wlet", and "Am Morgen & Ein Spaziergang". 5 bonus tracks on the CD: "Augenblick", "Programm 15", "Pisang", "Abschied Von Einer Schonen Zeit" and "Ein Spaziergang (Lange Version)".

New George BrigmanJungle Rot ... LP
Solid/Obscure Oxide, 1975. New Copy (reissue).... Out Of Stock
An American psychedelic classic from mid 70s Baltimore – awash in heavy fuzz and lots of electric effects! Jungle Rot has a raw, earnest quality that few other records can match – perhaps the first albums by MC5 or The Stooges – or the very first EP by Pussy Galore – but it's also very much its own animal, as is most music that's come out of Baltimore over the years! Brigman's guitar is recorded here with lots of pedals, effects, and echo – all very spaced out and trippy, and sounding a lot more late 60s than you'd guess from the date of the record. The tunes are often simple and straightforward – and sometimes slightly bluesy underneath all the fuzz – and the vocals are wonderfully abstracted in all that echo, coming out almost like Alan Vega on the first Suicide album. Titles include "Jungle Rot", "DMT"," Don't Bother Me", "Schoolgirl", "I Feel Alright", "Worrying", and "It's Misery". LP, Vinyl record album

Visionary electro soul from Cybotron – with the massively influential "Clear", the nearly as mindblowing "Techno City", and bonus mixes! "Clear" is Cybotron at their best – mixing early 80s future groove with a serious mastery of timeless Detroit funk in the mix. Includes the classic original version and a top notch, wholy respectful remix by Jose Animal Diaz. "Techno City" is another genre-defying gem – with a sleek, future funk production that's great in both the vocal and instrumental versions. 12-inch, Vinyl record

New CybotronEnter Cybotron (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Fantasy/Decision, 1983. New Copy 2LP Gatefold .... Out Of Stock
A mindblowing debut from Cybotron – one of the most unusual groups to ever hail from Detroit – and that's saying a hell of a lot, given the musical legacy of the city! Cybotron have a sound that's starkly electronic, and a huge influence on later electro, hip hop, techno, and house – served up here as a spare, fuzzy approach to funk – but with lots of the colder touches you'd find from post-punk imports at the time! The blend is quite unique, and even more unusual given the fact that the trio were working in virtual obscurity on the Detroit scene – as an early project from the legendary Juan Atkins, with guitarist Jon-5, and the mysterious electronician 3070! There's more funk here than most of the group's electro contemporaries – but the sound is still nicely cold in all the right parts too – and titles include the seminal "Clear", which was years ahead of its time – plus "Cosmic Cars", "Cosmic Raindance", "Industrial Lies", "The Line", and "Alleys Of Your Mind". 2LP reissue also features some nice bonus cuts – including "Clear (Jose Animal Diaz rmx)", "Cosmic Cars (Detroit style mix)", "Techno City (voc)", "Techno City (inst)", "R-9 (inst)", and "Eden (voc)".

New Kimio EtoSound Of The Koto/Music Of Japan ... CD

Spare and sublime koto work from Kimio Eto – a CD that brings together work from some of the first albums to bring the sound of the Japanese instrument to the shores of the US – recordings that present the music in a very faithful level overall! There's no other arrangements or instrumentation on the record – just plucked koto lines from Eto, played with a style that draws from tradition, but features some important modern inflections too – a very striking sound that makes for a compelling listen throughout – with qualities that are quite different than some of the other koto records from the time. Titles include "Choryu", "Yorokobi", "Midare", "Rokudan", "Kibo No Hikari", "Sakura", "Izumi", "Hachidan No Shirabe", and "Kinuta". CD also features three bonus tracks from an album with Bud Shank on flute – titles that include "Haru No Otozure", "Haru No Umi", and "Tanima No Suisha". CD

New Bill FrisellBig Sur (180 gram pressing – with download) ... LP
Okeh, 2013. New Copy 2 LPs Gatefold .... Out Of Stock
A really evocative little album from Bill Frisell – and that's saying a lot, given the rest of his work! The music was all written at a ranch in Big Sur – and has this spacious, airy sort of feel – one that draws on Bill's earlier style of guitar, but also inflects it with a slight Americanist tone – in ways that echo some of Charlie Haden or Pat Metheny's projects with a similar landscape ethos. The group retains a very ethereal feel – and features Eyvind Kang on viola, Hank Roberts on cello, Jenny Scheinman on violin, and Rudy Royston on drums – on titles that include "Hawks", "Cry Alone", "Animals", "Highway 1", "Gather Good Things", "The Big One", and "Going To California".

New Iron ButterflyIn-A-Gadda-Da-Vida ... LP
Atco, 1968. New Copy (reissue).... Out Of Stock
The album that rocked a million dorm rooms back in the 60s – and for good reason, too – given that the title track is a side-long, totally jamming monster – the kind of track that was really revolutionary at the time, and which still has a hell of an impact all these many years later! "In A Gadda Da Vida" was shortened to a single – with the big hook intact – but this classic album version runs for 17 minutes in length, and has the group doing all these cool jams with their instruments – all the animals in the garden of Eden talking to each other (or at least that's what our addled teenaged minds always thought!) Shorter tracks are mighty nice too – a heady, heavy brew of Hammond and fierce guitar from Erik Brann, on cuts all penned by group leader Doug Ingle. Titles include "Termination", "My Mirage", "Flowers & Roses", and "Most Anything You Want". LP, Vinyl record album

New Talking HeadsFear Of Music (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Sire/Rhino, 1979. New Copy (reissue).... Out Of Stock
A really tremendous album from The Talking Heads – and a set that moves far past their already-great early records, to really show a rhythmic complexity we never would have expected! Brian Eno is helping the group in the studio again here, and the record really shows both David Byrne and Eno's late 70s fascination with global rhythms – elements that are often used in spare, simple little ways to really help inflect the tunes with a playful imagination that goes way beyond the colder post-punk and new wave of most of their contemporaries! The balance of previous aesthetics with these new grooves is wonderful – heard to great effect on the classic club cut "I Zimbra" – but brewing up strongly underneath on gems that include "Mind", "Paper", "Cities", "Life During Wartime", "Memories Can't Wait", "Air", "Heaven", "Animals", "Electric Guitar", and "Drugs".
