AvengersAvengers (180 gram pressing) ... LP
4 Men With Beards, Late 70s. New Copy (reissue).... $14.99 18.99
The incendiary full length by The Avengers – their almighty, unjustly overlooked self-titled set (aka the Pink Album)! This is one of our absolute favorite Bay Area punk albums of any era – recorded in '77 and '78, but it went unreleased until 1983. We have no doubt that if this thing came out properly in '78 and got any kind of distribution, The Avengers could have built a massive legend – similar to the way X busted out of LA – and conquered punk fans the world over. Righteous, rage-filled, fearless and catchy – with one of great punk frontwomen in Penelope Houston. Do not dismiss this as just another 70s punk album. It's a masterpiece! Includes "We Are The One", "Car Crash", "No Martyr", "Desperation", "The Amerikan In Me", "Second To None", "Corpus Christi", "Uh-Oh" and more. 14 on all. LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny DankworthCurtain Up (aka Jazz From Abroad) ... LP
Columbia (UK), Early 60s. Near Mint- .... $18.99
Incredible early work from British leader Johnny Dankworth – jazz work that's as fluid and grooving as his best 60s soundtrack sessions, and cut with an early sense of power that's really great! Dankworth's tight on the head arrangements, really leaping into the rhythms of the tune with the same love of groove as contemporary Johnny Keating – but he also makes some strong solo space on the best tracks on the album, really letting the sax players in the group stretch out searingly. Players aren't named in the credits, sadly, but we're guessing they're the top-level players who made appearances on Dankworth's key British sides of the time. Titles include "A String Of Camels", "Cannonball", "Chano", "Avengers Theme", "Sack O Woe", "Esso Blues", and "Curtain Up". LP, Vinyl record album
(60s UK pressing!)

New Laurie JohnsonYou're Needed! – Suave Sixties Themes (aka England's New Big Band Sound – plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Pye/El (UK), 1960s. New Copy .... $6.99
A great collection of work from 60s UK maestro Laurie Johnson – best known for his theme to The Avengers, but represented here by an even wider-ranging batch of material! Half of the CD comes from the album England's New Big Band Sound – a rare American outing on Colpix Records! The style on those tracks is a bit like that of John Dankworth on some of his American records – jazzy at the core, but also with larger orchestral flourishes that put the work somewhere between jazz and popular instrumental. But given Johnson's penchant for hip timing and a nicely swinging groove, the album's pretty nice all the way through – never sleepy, and done with a good sense of presence on some of the instruments. Titles include "Jenny", "By Myself", "Pagan Love Song", "Nevada", "South Of The Border", "Bali Hai", "Twango", and "My Favorite Things". The remaining part of the CD features some of Johnson's famous themes – including "Theme From Dr Strangelove" and "The Avengers" – plus even better jazzy orchestral work pulled from sessions for Pye in the late 50s and early 60s – tracks that include "West End", "Limehouse", "Times Square", "Grand Central", "There's A Plot Afoot", "Lock Up Your Daughters", "Charmed Life", and "Minor Bossa Nova".

New VariousInstrumental Explosion – Incendiary Funk & R&B Instrumentals 1966-1973 ... CD
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy .... $14.99
Funky funky funky – way more so than you might think from the hokey title! The set's overflowing with rare instrumentals pulled from the indie label and funky 45 underground of the late 60s and early 70s – very much in the spirit of the Super Funk compilations on BGP, but almost harder-hitting, as the groove's completely without vocals overall – and the range of material is even more obscure than some of the usual BGP/Ace bits! The combos on the set range from rocking R&B combos to early funky jazz outfits – and the recording quality on most of these tracks is nice and rough and ready – with just the right edge to send over these cuts even more! Titles include "More Soul" by Ron Buford, "Ninety Eight Cents Plus Tax" by Detroit City Limits, "Chocolate Cherry" by Joe Tex Band, "Humpin" by Frank Armstrong & The Stingers, "Stokin" by Leon Ferguson & The Groove Tones, "Thing" by Lowell Fulsom, "Sundance (part 1)" by Lorenzo Holden, "Put Your Weight On It (part 1)" by Fillmore Street Soul Rebellion, "Roly Poly Mickey Lolich" by The Fans, and "Bad On Bad" by Chet Ivey & His Fabulous Avengers.

VariousSuper Funk Vol 4 – Rare & Classic Street Funk From The Vaults 1966 – 1973 ... CD
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy .... $11.99
Heavy funk galore – and easily one of the best titles in the massive Super Funk series! This one seems to go deeper than all the previous volumes – really digging down for some obscure tracks that push past the obvious funky 45 standards, to include some lost gems from rare sources in the southern scene! The set's awash in hard drums, fuzzy bass, tripped out guitar, and lots of rootsy deep soul vocals – stepping from track to track with a quality level that beats most other funky 45 collections on the market, made even better by some superb liner notes from compiler Dean Rudland! Titles include "I Got Some" by Billy Garner, "Deep Soul (part 2)" by Ron Buford, "Doin The Model" by Eddie Clearwater, "Crazy Legs (part 2)" by Albert Washington, "Momma Momma" by Betty Barney, "Don't Ever Change" by Chet Ivey & His Fabulous Avengers, "The Warm Up (part 1)" by Clifton White, "Chicken Scratch" by The Chili Peppers, "Fat N Funky" by Charles Crawford, "Super Cool (You're Just A Super Fool)" by Pat Hunt, "Out Of Sight" by The Soulsetters, and "Boogaloo Party" by Joe Swift's International. 20 tracks in all!

New VariousNumber 8 Wire – 16 Trippy New Zealand Nuggets 1967 to 1969 ... CD
Particles (UK), Late 60s. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Late 60s acid rock from the New Zealand scene – trippy tunes by TThe Human Instinct, The Dave Miller Set, Vicky & Dicky, The Gremlins, The Smoke, The Avengers, The Group People, Lew Pryme and and many more! It's certainly interesting that such a cool, worth-discovering collection of psychedelic pop comes exclusively from New Zealanders – but that aside, it's simply great stuff! Driving, fuzz-drenched guitar and organ heavy jams and more sparely accented grooves – most with pop hooks and a catchy approach to songcraft! Includes "Blast Off 1970" by The Gremlins, "Tropic Of Capricorn" by The Hi-Revving Tongues, "Time Beyond" by The Top Shelf, "I'm Allergic To Flowers" by Vicky & Dicky, "Jumbo" by The Zarks, "Mr Guy Fawkes" by The Dave Miller Set, "Water Pipe" by The Avengers, "Footprints On My Mind" by The Music Connection and more.

New Snowboy & The Latin SectionMambo Rage ... CD
CuBop/Ubiquity, 1998. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
The first session that Snowboy cut for the Cubop label in the US – and one that has him recording in the UK with his crack band of London Latin players, but with a tighter feel than usual, more in keeping with the stuff on Cubop. Of course, Snowboy still peppers the set with his unusual approach to Latin jazz – as you'll hear on his version of "The New Avengers" theme – but most of this is straight ahead Latin jazz, played by one of the best groups located outside of the US. Titles include "Mambo For Max", "Half Step", "The S.P.", and "Time, Gentlemen, Please". CD

New VariousTV Sound & Image – British Television, Film, & Library Composers 1956 to 1980 ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 50s/1960s/1970s. New Copy 2CD .... Out Of Stock
England was a surprisingly funky place in the 60s and 70s – home to a rich array of great grooves created by the scene's important sound library labels – staffed by the cream of the crop of the British jazz musicians and soundtrack composers of the time! The work of these cats often backed bigger names in film and TV – James Bond, The Avengers, Dave Allen, and others – but this set digs even deeper, to uncover a host of great instrumental moments that go way beyond famous movie themes – a wealth of excellent cuts from the late 50s through the late 70s – starting with exotic jazz modes, moving into 60s mod swingers, and including a fair bit of 70s electric funk as well! This scene's been reissued a bit before, but never this well – as Soul Jazz do their usual top-shelf job of bringing the music together – and offering up detailed notes and a great package that really sends the whole thing home. 2CD version features 36 tracks that include "Condition Red" by Barry Stoller, "Light Flight" by Pentangle, "Man Alive" by Tony Hatch, "The Contract Man" by Bullet, "Echo Four Two" by Laurie Johnson, "Man Friday" by Syd Dale, "Hard Hitter" by Keith Papworth, "Fragment Of Fear" by Johnny Harris, "Sort Of Soul" by Birds & Brass, "Fiesta Numero Uno" by The Marleybone Orchestra, "The Persuaders" by John Barry, "Getting Nowhere In A Hurry" by Roy Budd, "Canvas" by Brian Bennett, "Death Line" by Will Malone, "Folk Song" by James Clarke, "Steam Heat" by Barbara Moore, "Artful Dodger" by Syd Dale, "Jaguar" by John Gregory, "Whole Lotta Love" by CCS, "Face Up" by Alan Moorehouse, "Angels" by Alan Parker, and "Soul Thing" by Keith Mansfield.

VariousEl Paso Rock Vol 9 – Sand Surfin' – Border Town Rock N Roll 1964 to 1967 ... CD
Norton, Mid 60s. New Copy .... $12.99
The El Paso scene was miles and miles and miles away from the ocean – but the city's hotbed of indie groups of the 60s definitely picked up on the guitar-driven sounds from the coast – serving up the host of great instrumental and vocal numbers featured on the set! Make no mistake – this isn't copycat surf music, but a great example of the way that the deftness of surf guitar inspired thousands of young musicians in the 60s – giving them a way to really show off and improve their chops on the guitar in the years before more jamming modes of psych or prog. The sense of dexterity and economy here is amazing – and although some cuts have vocals, and some have other instrumentation in the lead, the guitar is really king on the set – and often produced with the kind of cool tricks they were using in LA. Titles include "Why I Cry" by Pitiful Panics, "Surf Beat 65" by Beach Nuts, "Mr Big" by Four Frogs, "Ghost Riders 65" by Scavengers, "Sand Surfin" by Four Dimensions, "Sky Diver" by Steve Cooper & The Avantis, and "Don't Need You No More" by Outer Limits.
