Dining RoomsTre ... CD
Schema (Italy), 2003. Used ... $6.99
The 3rd album by The Dining Rooms (in case you couldn't guess by the title!) – and the best so far! These guys have really matured from earlier outings – moving into a sophisticated realm of downtempo soundscapes crafted with a great deal of care, and which are put together with a lot more than simple tricks and gimmicks. There's loads of really solid tunes in here – sly numbers that sneak up on you with a subtle approach to the craft, gently burrowing in and taking root – somehow making the album that much more compelling overall. A number of tracks have some wonderfully languid vocals, some male and some female – and these tunes fall nicely next to instrumental numbers with a very evocative approach. Titles include "Anima Per Amarti", "Tunnel", "La Citta Nuda", "Fluxus", "Flamenco Sketches", "Dreamy Smiles", "You", "African Loungesters", and a nice cover of Sun Ra's "Astro Black"! CD

Milton NascimentoUma Travessia – 50 Anos De Carreira Ao Vivo (DVD) ... DVD
Universal (Brazil), 2013. New Copy ... $19.99
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".

New VariousBeleza Tropical – Brazil Classics Vol 1 ... LP
Fly/Sire, 1989. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 Equipe 84ID (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Dischi Ricordi/RPM (UK), 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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 Aldo Romano & Paolo FresuCanzoni ... CD
Enja (Germany), 1992. New Copy ... 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 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

Jorge BenSacundin Ben Samba ... CD
Universal (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $13.99
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

Ed Bogas/Ray Shanklin/VariousFritz The Cat – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Fantasy, Mid 70s. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $39.99
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

Simon Green serves up some heavy beats, spacious soundscapes, and bits of tribal/exotica touches – slow, nice and slow, in a way that most downtempo artists these days seem to be forgetting. With that Kruder & Dorfmeister kind of "Hey, should this be on 45?" sort of approach – one that we love so much!

George BrigmanJungle Rot ... LP
Solid/Obscure Oxide, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
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

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. Used ... $6.99
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)".

New Charles EarlandEarland's Jam ... LP
Columbia, 1982. Very Good ... $4.99
Stellar grooves from Charles Earland – a great mix of jazz, soul, and funk – put together in a way that's quite different from his previous records on Prestige or Mercury Records! The sound here is tight 80s soul – put together by Tom Tom Washington, who gives the whole thing a sophisticated Chicago vibe – and one that matches Charles' sweet keyboard solos with wickedly sharp rhythms, and some occasional vocal bits too. Singers include Larry Blackmon, TC Campell, and Charles himself – but there's still a focus that seems to be more on the instrumentation overall – served up with some mighty nice organ lines from Earland. Titles include "The Only One", "Marcia's Waltz", "You Belong To Me", "Never Knew Love Like This Before", "Guilty", "Laser Lips", "Earland's Jam", and "Animal". LP, Vinyl record album

Vince Guaraldi's wonderful music for the first-ever cartoon to feature the Peanuts characters in animated form – a sublime batch of jazz instrumentals that forever changed the face of music in shows of this nature! Vince steps out with an amazing sound right from the start – even different than his previous jazz records from the San Francisco scene – with a more careful balance of swing and sadness, lyricism and soul – always played in a subtle, understated way that really makes the music come through with a lasting degree of power. Core sounds are from the trio of Guaraldi on piano, Monty Budwig on bass, and Colin Bailey on drums – and titles include key early versions of the "Charlie Brown Theme" and "Linus & Lucy" – plus "Oh Good Grief", Pebble Beach", "Schroeder", and "Blue Charlie Brown".

New Iron ButterflyIn-A-Gadda-Da-Vida ... LP
Atco, 1968. Good ... $0.99
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

For The People Like Us shows a lot of love for 90s east coast hip hop production, without imitating it – funky beats that'll get your heads nodding, sampled vocal loops, murky keyboard atmospherics – but there's a heavily atmospheric vibe, and gritty texture that gives it a distinctive, unique sound of its own. Includes "For The People Like Us", "The Sun Is Up", "Der Traum Von Gestern (Resurgent Branch)", "Animals Garden", "Be As You Are", "Keine Pantomime (No Pantomime)", "I'm No Joke", "Coming To Your World", "Symbol Fur Morgen (Symbol Of Tomorrow)" and more.

Knitting Factory, 2011. Used ... $8.99
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. Titles include "African Soldier", "You Can R Un", "Rise", "Slave Masters", "For Dem E Ye", "The Good Leaf" and "Giant Of Africa". CD

Atlantic, 1962. Used ... $6.99
Truly one of the Modern Jazz Quartet's greatest albums – and a set that has an edge and a darkness that's missing from some of their other Atlantic records! Part of the reason for this may be the group's fantastic reading of Ornette Coleman's "Lonely Woman" – a killer moody track that sounds great in the group's vibes/piano style – and which leads off the album with a chilling tone that's really unbelievable! The rest of the album's pretty great too – and there's a brooding intensity we don't normally hear in the piano of John Lewis and vibes of Milt Jackson. Other tracks include Gary McFarland's "Why Are You Blue" – plus John Lewi's "Belkis", "Animal Dance", "New York 19", and "Trieste". CD

Prince Po & Oh NoAnimal Serum ... LP
Greenstreets, 2014. New Copy 2LPs ... $19.99 21.98
A tight team effort from Prince Po and Oh No! Prince Po has remained sharp in the solo MC realm for a good number of years since his legendary duo work with Pharoahe Monch in Organized Konfusion – and this is essentially a continuation of that solo excellence – even though Oh No gets duo billing here, it's for his production work. And on that note, Oh No's maturation in the production booth is steadily growing more impressive. It's fitting that they're joint billed, as this is as solid as we've heard both of them in a quite a while, which is saying something, since they always impress. Guests include the above mentioned Pharoahe Monch, plus Roc C, Sadat X and more. Titles include "Machine Rages", "U Already" feat Saafir Sizzlean and Rockness Monsta, "Keep Reachin", "1st Word To What Was last Said", "Where U Eat", "Smash" feat OC and Pharoahe Monch, "Visionz", "Wavy" feat Sadat X, "Toxic", "Bearz" feat Roc C, "U", "Starflyer Milez" and "Givitup".

RashomonCameraman's Revenge (LP/DVD) ... LP
Cineploit (Austria), 2014. New Copy LP & DVD ... $24.99
Really amazing soundtrack music from Rashomon – done for the films of Ladislaw Starewicz – but more than strong enough to stand on its own! The music is over 100 years late in one case – as the film "The Cameraman's Revenge" was originally created in 1912 – but the sounds here have a really timelessly spooky feel – a haunting blend of elements that include autoharp, bodhran, Fender Rhodes, harmonium, Japanese flute, jaw harp, percussion, mellotron, zither, and lots more – all laid out in this wonderfully eerie soundscape! "The Mascot" was filmed in 1933 – and the music is equally great – and the LP also comes with a DVD for "The Cameraman's Revenge" – a tremendous rare Russian film – animated with insects!

Lou ReedRock N Roll Animal ... LP
RCA, 1974. Very Good ... $6.99
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".

Eric SidayUltra Sonic Perception ... CD
Berry/Dual Planet (Australia), Early 60s. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
Very early electronic sound library material from Eric Siday – so much so, that all these tracks were originally issued as 78rpm singles – at a time before the sound library scene moved into using full LPs! A number of cuts here were used as early passages on the first Doctor Who episodes – and others follow nicely in a similar vein – with very bold, powerful explorations of the earliest elements of analogue electronics – and an especially strong ear for the darker side of the spectrum! Most numbers here are never too noisy – not as much so as avant compositional work of the time – but they hang on the edge in a really great way, creating a lot of stark spacey elements with just a few deft touches.

Epic, 1968. Very Good- ... $7.99
Killer work from Sly & The Family Stone – hard-grooving, fast-funking, and really setting the scene for countless groups to come! The album's a messed-up funky party, with plenty of short little tracks that have a mix of funk, soul, and rock – perfect for the crossover crowd from whence Sly sprang, and who would become his biggest supporters into the 70s. And almost best of all, there's hardly any hits here – just tight little numbers that are as fresh today as they were back at the end of the 60s – all the kind of righteous funk the group could do better than anybody else! Titles include "Fun", "Plastic Jim", "Dynamite!", "Chicken", "Into My Own Thing", "Life", "Love City", "I'm An Animal", and the seminal "Jane Is A Groupee". LP, Vinyl record album

Bruno SpoerriTeddy Bear/Lilith ... LP
Finders Keepers/Cache Cache (UK), 1978. New Copy ... $16.99
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

Talking HeadsFear Of Music (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Sire/Rhino, 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 24.99
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".

Dimitri TiomkinRhapsody Of Steel ... LP
USS, 1959. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $19.99
One of the coolest late 50s soundtrack albums we've come across in a long time – Dimitri Tiomkin's soaring, sweeping and spacey orchestral scores for the big budget animated short subject industrial film Rhapsody Of Steel! Rhapsody Of Steel was devoted to the heroic history of, you guessed it, steel – with kind of a macho, yet still childlike storybook style of narration, giving a history of steel from the first meteor to hit the Earth to the 50s space age rocket crafts that seized the imaginations of the time. Tiomkin's score shares some of the traits of his 50s westerns and otherwise adventurous film music – with the large scale heft of the Pittsburgh Symphony behind him (it's the Steel City, after all) but also moves into a kind of playful groove, no doubt perfectly suited to both the narration and the animation of the short. You get the 22 minute full score twice on this great little soundtrack, first with just the music, and again with the complete narration from the short! 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

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".

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.

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

Moondog, 1956. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

(Includes rare booklet!! Cover has some wear and a bit of aging.)

New Alan PriceO Lucky Man! ... CD
Warner, 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A real standout effort from ex-Animal Alan Price – not just because it was the soundtrack for a film in which he starred, but also because it features some of his hippest tracks to date! Price has a great post-60s feel here that's a bit like the territory Georgie Fame was hitting at the time – still with some elements of his rougher, R&B-inspired style of the previous decade – but served up with a newly sophisticated approach to rhythms and vocalizing that really stand out. The whole thing's pretty hard to characterize with a few simple labels, but there's a nice sense of depth and play going on – due partly, no doubt, to the freedom that Price was given with the music by director Lindsay Anderson. Titles include "O Lucky Man", "Pastoral", "Arrival", "Look Over Your Shoulder", "Justice", "My Home Town", "Changes", and "Sell Sell". CD

New Spirit12 Dreams Of Dr. Sardonicus ... LP
Epic, 1970. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The crowning achievement of Spirit – and a record that you probably could have found in any college dorm room in the early 70s! 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
(Orange label pressing. Cover has wear & partially split seams.)

New Talking HeadsFear Of Music ... CD
Sire, 1979. Used ... Temporarily 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".

New MoondogMoondog (Prestige) (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Prestige/4 Men With Beards, 1956. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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

New VariousPygmies Of The Ituri Forest ... LP
Folkways, 1965. Used ... Out Of Stock
Like the other amazing ethnographic records in the Ethnic Folkways series, this set documents some seldom heard African music traditions. This set focuses on the music of the Pygmies of the Ituri forest in the Congo, also known as the BaMbuti. The music is primarily vocal in nature, but still quite rhythmic, with lots of shorter pieces banded together as 21 tracks, including "Elephant Hunting Song", 'Spear Song", "Hunting Cries Of Beaters", "Honey-Gathering Song", "Animal Dance Song", "Old Pygmy Telling Legend", "Flute Duet", "Pygmy Dance In Bantu Village", "Bachelor Duet With Lukembi", 'Two Initiation Songs", "Two Songs Of Alima", "Mocking Song Of The Lusumba", "Lusumba Fire Dance Song" and "Song Of Devotion To The Forest".

Fantasy/Decision, 1983. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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 AnimalsAnimals – The Mickie Most Years & More (Animals/On Tour/Animal Tracks/Animalization with bonus tracks) (5 CD set with T Shirt) ... CD
EMI/Real Gone, 1960s. New Copy 5 CDs & T Shirt ... Out Of Stock
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.

New Joe FarrellCanned Funk ... LP
CTI, 1975. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
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

New Maynard FergusonMaynard '64 ... LP
Roulette, 1964. Used ... Out Of Stock
Maynard swings it surprisingly nicely – in his standard big band mode, but with a lot more of an edge than in later years, thanks no doubt to some of the strong players he had in his group! 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. Titles include "Rock Me To Sleep", "Animated Suspension", "He Can't Swing", "Vignette", "For The Cats", and "New Bag Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

New Iron ButterflyIn-A-Gadda-Da-Vida (deluxe edition) ... CD
Atlantic, 1968. Used ... 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". CD
(Out of print deluxe edition with bonus material. Includes original book and slipcase.)

New Kid Creole & The CoconutsIn Praise Of Older Women & Other Crimes ... LP
Sire, 1985. Used ... Out Of Stock
Later work by the one-and-only Kid Creole & The Coconuts – past his prime, but armed with the silly, and still very enjoyable hit "Endicott" – and other nice moments! The sound is cleaner and more streamlined by this point, namely the mid 80s – but the lively horns, vibes, and occasionally stomping percussion make it through. As you can tell from the title, the cheeky humor leads the way for this set! Other titles include "Caroline Was a Drop Out", "You Can't Keep A Good Man Down", "The Animal Cop", "Dowopsalsaboprock", "Luv Got Me Dancin On My Knees", and "Name It". LP, Vinyl record album

Ata Tak/Bureau B (Germany), 1983. New Copy (reissue)... 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".
