Big StarNothing Can Hurt Me ... LP
Omnivore, Mid 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $22.99 24.99
Rare versions of legendary recordings by Big Star – and also the soundtrack to the feature length documentary Nothing Can Hurt Me – with demos, alternate mixes and more from Big Star proper and leaders Chris Bell and Alex Chilton! The alternate versions of the most classic and most fan beloved tracks are well worth having – with some looser, rougher studio takes that have a stripped-to-the-essentials feel, plus some more fleshed out alternate mixes that are pretty great and would have felt right out home on albums back in the day. Also includes a bit of studio banter, an unissued backwards intro to "Stroke It Noel" and more cool unreleased bits. 21 tracks in all: "O My Soul (Demo, 1973)", "In The Street (Movie Mix, 2012)", "My Life Is Right (Alternate Mix, 1972)", "Feel (Alternate Mix, 1972)", "September Gurls (Movie Mix, 2012)", "Way Out West (Alternate Mix, 1973)", "Give Me Another Chance (Control Room Monitor Mix, 1972)" and many more.

Terry CallierI Just Can't Help Myself ... LP
Cadet, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
One of the best albums that Terry Callier ever recorded – and a masterpiece of the baroque soul crossover style that was going down at the Chess/Cadet label at the time! Terry's own folksy singing and playing would be more than enough to make this record great – but it's given an amazing edge by Richard Evans and Charles Stepney, who create these floating pillows of sound and washes of jazzy colors that fit Terry's moods perfectly, and really expand the emotional intensity of the songs. At the time of this release, the Chess empire was falling apart – but the forces that be put a great last push into the record, and Terry's backed by superb work from Chicago studio giants like Phil Upchurch, Don Myrick, Art Hoyle, Bobby Christian, Cleveland Eaton, Louis Satterfield, and Evans and Stepney themselves! Every track is a wonder, and titles include "Alley-Wind Song" , "Can't Catch the Trane", "Bowlin' Green", and "Until Tomorrow". LP, Vinyl record album

CanOut Of Reach (180 gram pressing) ... LP
EMI/Cleopatra, 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
It's the late 70s, so the line up here still includes the motoric Jaki Liebezeit and his classic Krautrock drumming and Michael Karoli, who's adopted a very prog sensibility on guitar plus Irmin Schmidt, Rosko Gee and Reebop Kwaka Baah. Plus as an added bonus, Connie Planck recorded this tasty, treat, so you know the electronics are in full effect. 7 tracks in all, including 'Serpentine", "Pauper's Daughter & I", "November", "Seven Days Awake", "Give Me No Roses", "Like INOBE GOD" and "One More Day".

Tyrone DavisCan I Change My Mind ... LP
Dakar, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
The debut album from Tyrone Davis – a supreme achievement for the Chicago soul scene of the late 60s, and a record with a sound that would set the standard for years to come! Tyrone had been bumping around as a blusier singer before this set – but here, working with arrangements by Don Myrick and Willie Henderson, he gets a sound that's sweet and soaring – taking a rough-spirited soul, and recasting it in a sweeter sound for the 70s. Tyrone's not lapsing into bluesy cliches here, and instead keeps things wonderfully soulful by hitting a loping groove that picks up his beat and gives the songs a nice lilt. You can hear this to best effect on the title track "Can I Change My Mind", but all tracks are great – including "She's Looking Good", "Call On Me", "Open The Door To Your Heart", and "Have You Ever Wondered Why?".

Inner Space (Can)Agilok & Blubbo (red vinyl) ... LP
Wah Wah (Spain), 1968. New Copy Gatefold ... $29.99
A madly trippy soundtrack, played by a pre-Can lineup that includes Irmin Schmidt on vocals and guitar, Holger Czukay on bass, and Jacki Liebezeit on drums! The tunes here are hardly what you might expect from a conventional 60s film score – and really rock out with the same sort of quality you'd find in the best early work from Can – very sonically sensitive, filled with unusual textures and tones that go far from conventional rockish instrumentation – even on some of the album's shorter tracks! There's a psyche aspect to the recording, but one that's never overindulgent at all – possibly because of the length of the tunes – and the material's getting its first-ever appearance here. Titles include "Mama Mama", "Michele Ist Da", "Agilok & Blubbo", "Dialog Zwischen Birken", "Der Letzte Brief", "Probleme", "Flop Pop", and "Apolkalypse". LP, Vinyl record album

New Tim MaiaWorld Psychedelic Classics 4 – Nobody Can Live Forever – The Existential Soul Of Tim Maia ... LP
Luaka Bop, 1970s. New Copy 2LP ... $22.99 23.98
Insanely great sounds from the legendary Tim Maia – easily the most soulful singer in 70s Brazil, and an artist with a heck of a strong ear for funk, too! The music here is an incredible hybrid of American soul and Brazilian elements – especially since some lyrics are in English – and the grooves are often mixed together in a sound that's nice and fuzzy around the edges, with some slight psychedelic elements that makes the cuts a perfect fit for this Luaka Bop series! Yet Tim Maia's hardly a guy who can easily fit into any easy slot or series – because as you'll hear on this set, he's got a vibe that's all his own – a really wonderful approach that's different even from some of his hippest contemporaries in Brazil – and which has gone onto have influence on countless other generations of singers and musicians – including his nephew Ed Motta. The package is great – a real visual tribute to the sounds within – and titles include "Que Beleza", "Ela Partiu", "Do Leme Ao Pontal", "Brother Father Mother Sister", "Quer Queira Quer Nao Queira", "Let's Have A Ball Tonight", "I Don't Care", "The Dance Is Over", "Rational Culture", "You Don't Know What I Know", and "Nobody Can Live Forever".

Ann PeeblesI Can't Stand The Rain (with download) ... LP
Hi Records/Fat Possum, 1974. New Copy ... $11.99 15.99
Easily our favorite album ever by Ann Peebles – not just for the beathead title track, but also because it seems to be the one record where she brings a bit something extra to the studio! The sound is certainly in the classic Hi Records mode here – thanks to production by Willie Mitchell – but there's also a deeper groove overall, a stronger burning bottom, and an all-soul sound to most tracks that goes way beyond simple cliches of southern soul. Ann's vocals are tremendous throughout – sometimes sweet, sometimes mean – and titles include the sublime "I Can't Stand The Rain", plus "Run Run Run", "One Way Street", "You Keep Me Hangin On", and "If We Can't Trust Each Other".

New VariousToo Slow To Disco – Late 70s Westcoast Yachtpop You Can Almost Dance To (180 gram pressing with download) ... LP
How Do You Are (Germany), Late 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $16.99
Don't think "disco", think "AOR" – as the tunes here are all sweet smooth tracks from the glory days of late 70s radio – done in a great style that mixes blue-eyed soul with lots of warm jazzy touches! A few of the names here are big ones, but lots are lesser-known talents that labored in the farther reaches of the major label scene – artists who got lots of great studio support and access to key instrumental talent – which helped them craft laidback gems that have plenty of polish, but are still way fresher than the hits from the time! The production is superb throughout, and the instrumentation is impeccable – and titles include "Steal Away" by Photoglo, "Get It Up For Love" by Ned Doheny, "Let's Put Our Love Back Together" by Micky Denne & Ken Gold, "Deco Lady" by Rupert Holmes, "Over & Done With" by White Horse, "Liverpool Fool" by Browning Bryant, "Steal Away" by Robbie Dupree, "Spaceship Earth" by David Batteau, "Shut The Door" by Don Brown, and "Room To Grow" by Brian Elliot.

CanEge Bamyasi ... LP
Spoon/Mute (UK), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Around September 2, 2014
One of the most essential Can albums, and perhaps their best – have drums ever sounded better on a record? Ege Bamyasi features some of Jaki Liebezeit's greatest beats, from the shorter songs like the amazing "Vitamin C", "I'm So Green", and "Spoon", to the longer, stretched out tunes in the tradition of the group's previous masterpiece, Tago Mago – "Pinch", "Soup", and "One More Night". With the classic second lineup, featuring Damo Suzuki on vocals, spouting off in several languages during the course of single song, but with a few instrumental numbers too. Elastic grooves with a driving pulse! LP, Vinyl record album

CanMonster Movie ... LP
Spoon/Mute, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... Around September 2, 2014
The massive debut from Can – one of our favorite art rock albums ever – and a record we can hardly believe was recorded in the late 60s given that it's a couple decades ahead of the pack! Monster Movie indeed roars – but does so with an unselfconscious feel that are the hallmark of the Can sound! This is the original line up with vocalist Malcolm Mooney, bassist Holger Czukay, guitarist Michael Karoli, organist Irmin Schmidt, and drummer Jacki Liebezeit – doing their inimitable, revolutionary thing over 4 long tracks. A cathartic, synapse firing masterpiece – and cheaper than hypnosis! Tracks include "Father Cannot Yell", "Mary, Mary, So Contrary", "Outside My Door", and the incredible side long "You Doo Right".

CanSoundtracks ... LP
United Artists/Mute, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Around September 2, 2014
An early classic from Can – the first recordings with Damo Suzuki, and kind of the start of Can's more hypnotic sounds! Soundtracks found the group working for, you guessed it, film projects, but it's still pretty much a Can album rather than passages of more ambient score type music. Hypnotically repetitive rhythms and always excellent Can drums & percussion, with vocals by Damo, and the last couple of Can tracks with Malcolm Mooney. Titles include the epic "Mother Sky", "Deadlock", "Tango Whiskeyman", "Don't Turn The Lights On, Leave Me Alone", "Soul Desert" and "She Brings The Rain". LP, Vinyl record album

Moody genius from Can – and one of greatest albums of its time! Tons of spooky spare atmosphere, vocals that go from a lull to a cathartic echoey shriek, and that rollicking and propulsive backbeat that makes Can a band for the ages. Not just a landmark in what was to be dubbed Krautrock – truly an indispensable masterpiece regardless of genre, and a record so influential to so many movements in underground music that it is really impossible to imagine the world without it. Timeless! Tracks include "Paperchase", "Mushroom", "Oh Yeah", "Halleluwah", "Aumgn", "Peking O", and "Bring Me Coffee Or Tea". LP, Vinyl record album

A stone killer from OV Wright – a record that's got all the raw, deeply soulful vocals we love in his early work – mixed with some wicked 70s Hi Records production from Willie Mitchell! Imagine an Al Green record, but with rawer vocals, and you've got a good idea of the feel of this one – a perfect setting for OV's massive talent, and a great way for him to reach out to a wider audience too! The sound is impeccable – about as classic as you can get for Hi – and titles include a number of great Willie Mitchell originals – including "I Feel Love Growin", "The Time We Have", and "You Gotta Have Love". The set also includes a nice version of "Trying To Live My Life Without You", too! LP, Vinyl record album

New Irmin Schmidt & Inner Space (Can)Kamasutra ... LP
Crippled Dick (Germany), 1969. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A lost soundtrack as brilliant as we hoped it'd be when we were first hipped to its existence – made for the late 60s German erotica production Kamasutra – Consummation Of Love from composer Irmin Schmidt and Inner Space, the group that was soon to be Can! It’s a really interesting dynamic, some pretty recognizable Can style soundscapes, with ultra hypnotic, actually kind of funky percussion & rhythms, fuzzed out guitars, and an incredible groove. It has some Eastern strings and other Far East flourishes inspired by the subject matter and its place of creation, but you get the sense that the musicians either had full creative freedom to do their thing, or simply couldn't shake off their idiosyncratic genius for a paycheck – it feels like the pre Krautrock era trailblazing that it actually is! A few of the tracks have vocals, one with female vocalist Margareta Juvan, plus Inner Space/Can men Malcolm Mooney and Michael Karoli – but for the most part it's sultry psyche cinematic instrumental grooves. Amazing! Titles include "Indiches Panorama" (I-VI), "I'm Hiding My Nightingale", "Im Tempel", "In Kalkutta" (I-III), "Im Orient" (I & II), "There Was A Man" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

New Michael FennellyLove Can Change Everything – Demos 1967 to 1972 ... LP
Sundazed, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A pretty great set of unreleased tracks by Michael Fennelly – a name that might be instantly familiar, but he's a vital figure in late 60s sunshine rock and 70s power pop – thanks to his work in Curt Boettcher's Millennium and Fennelly's later group Crabby Appleton! Love Can Change Everything is a set of previously unreleased demos, some going back to the late 60s Millennium period – a band in which Fennelly was one of the ensemble working under songwriter Curt Boettcher and producer Gary Usher. It's also got formative versions of Crabby Appleton tunes – the group in which Fennelly was a primary creative engine. It's revelatory stuff and a joy from beginning to end! Brilliantly well crafted late 60s/early 70s grooves that have a bit more for a Cali folk rock vibe than his commercially released material, but it's got a fully formed feel. 24 tracks: "I've Been Found", "I Don't Think That I'll See That Time Again", "Try To Understand", "Iris Please", "Leanna", "Under The Trees And Moonlight", "Hunger For Love", "The Other Side", a nice version of the Crabby Appleton breakout "Go Back", "Dark Night", "Flyer" and more.

Mats Aleklint QuartetMats Aleklint Quartet ... LP
Moserobie (Sweden), 2013. New Copy ... $24.99
A beautifully bold session from trombonist Mats Aleklint – a player we don't know well at all, but who really steps out on this set as a leader for Moserobie Records! The sound is a bit looser than most of the recent work on the label – not entirely free, but nicely without any strong structures – so that Mats can stretch out on these amazing lines on both slide and valve trombone, with a sense of voice and vision on the instrument that we haven't heard since Roswell Rudd! The rest of the lineup is great too – a quartet with mighty nice tenor and bass clarinet from Per Texas Johansson, bass from Joe Williamson, and drums and synth from Christopher Cantillo. Aleklint also plays a bit of thumb piano and pump organ too – and titles include "Nattbuss", "Hur Eller Dur", "Braxen", "Algskog", "Landet Runt", and "Snabbt In Snabb Tut". LP, Vinyl record album

New Tony AllenBlack Voices ... LP
Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 1999. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
A seminal set that really put Tony Allen back on top – a record that showed that Allen was way more than just Fela's drummer, or another Afro Funk artist in general – but instead a really free-thinking, deep-concept musician overall! The album comes from key time that Allen spent on the Paris scene in the 90s – really refining a new sound, while keeping all the best bits from before – creating this new sort of darker groove that almost mixes older percussion with kind of a spacey style that's echoes proggish funk from a range of groups from Can to Cymande! There's loads of cool keyboards and tight guitar lines, and even the vocals have some spacey production that makes them fit nicely with the grooves. Titles include "Asiko", "Get Together", "Black Voices", and "The Same Blood". LP, Vinyl record album

AlpayYekte ... LP
Pharaway Sounds (Spain), Early 70s. New Copy ... $25.99
Unusual sounds from Alpay – an artist who perfectly shows the unique east/west crossroads that ran through the Turkish scene of the 70s! At one level, Alpay's as Western as you might guess from his look on the cover – and attempts here to serve up rockish tracks aimed at the mainstream – but his music is also heavy on plenty of older Eastern elements too – unusual inflections on the vocals, exotic instrumentation alongside electronic, and a really compelling style that sounds both ancient and futuristic at the same time! There's a budding spiritualism that seems to seep out around the corners of more conventional song structures – and the blend definitely echoes some of the best modes of the Turkish scene of the same time. The package features a very well-selected batch of Alpay recordings from the early 70s, complete with notes – and titles include "Bak Kalbim", "Akca Kizlar", "Can Karagozlum", "Ask Boyledir", "Suna", and "Denizciler".

A holy grail of 70s African Funk – and not just for the unusual look of the cover! The set's a really unique one – almost rootsier than most of the better-known Ghanian grooves of the time, but funkier too – with a brilliant blend of raw percussion, quirky basslines, and some smoking horn parts that are a lot more American soul and funk than the usual 70s African groove! The whole thing's stunning all the way through – a record that totally informs an understanding of its generation, yet in ways that no other record can touch. Wonderful all the way through, with not a bit of filler – and all cuts are right on the money for any fan of African funk! Titles include "Toffie", "Fa No Dem Ara", "This Hustling World", "Kwaakwaa", and "Akoko Ba". LP, Vinyl record album

Archie WhitewaterArchie Whitewater (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Cadet/Get On Down, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99 19.98
A damn legendary record from the last years of Chess Records – and for good reason, too! Archie Whitewater were a group that was years ahead of its time – a rock combo, but one with real genre-crossing sensibilities that made them perfect for the experimental styles at the Cadet/Concept side of Chess – the same slice of the musical universe that gave us Rotary Connection and important productions from Charles Stepney! The sound here has some surprisingly soulful elements at times – especially the instrumentation, which features some great break moments that get nice and funky, and strands of soulful jazz and blues that really make the music way different than most other groups we can think of – or maybe a bit like a rare elite who shared such visionary territory with Archie Whitewater, such as Shades Of Joy on their first Fontana record. The keyboards and sax lines are as great as the drums – and the vocals have a melancholy undercurrent that's a really refreshing change from some of the overly-postured modes you'd get from other groups in 1970. Titles include the sublime sample cut "Cross Country" – but there's loads of other nice ones with the same stripped-down "Dusty Fingers" sort of groove – and other titles include "Life Is A River", "Home Again", "Lament For The Walking Dead", "Seacoast", "Country To the City", "Friends & Neighbors", and "Mist Of The Early Morning".

India Arie continues her sensuous journey in sound – working here in the same earthy blend of acoustic and electric elements that made other records so great, and showing that she's still one of the strongest voices in contemporary soul! The record's got a personal, intimate quality that's head and shoulders above most of the harder-hitting divas on the charts these days – and although other indie singers have attempted India's sound on their own recent records, Arie shows that she's still one of the few who can get a sound like this right. Gentle guitar and warm vocals float together in perfect tandem throughout the record – and the whole thing has a very cohesive approach that never seems to ruin the groove, even on the few obvious attempts at a hit!

The Beatles live at the BBC – heard here in a host of rare recordings that were done between March 1962 and June 1965 – pulled from the vaults of the legendary radio station, and with a few cool dialogue bits too! The versions here were all played live on the air, and make for some much-needed alternate takes on the big hits by the Fab Four – and a few American numbers that really show the influence of other styles on their early sound. And since the recordings were done in a top-shelf studio, they're not muddy concert recordings – but actually feel more like some lost EMI studio material from the same period. 71 titles in all – including "Nothin Shakin", "The Hippy Hippy Shake", "Glad All Over", "Rock & Roll Music", "Ticket To Ride", "Ooh My Soul", "Don't Ever Change", "Slow Down", "Matchbox", "I Forgot To Remember To Forget", "The Honeymoon Song", "Lucille", "Can't Buy Me Love", "Taste Of Honey", "From Us To You", "I Got A Woman", "I'll Be On My Way", "Shot Of Rhythm & Blues", "Some Other Guy", "Soldier Of Love", and "Clarabella".

A monster bit of funk that's unlike anything else we can think of! Beginning Of The End hailed from The Bahamas, but don't hold that against them – because instead of being a Caribbean cliche, they took the best part of the island rhythms, and used them to forge an incredible approach to funk! They've got a choppy sound that's the result of some incredibly dexterous guitar, bass, and drums – and which you'll recognize instantly from their one-time hit "Funky Nassau", a killer funk track that never gets old, no matter how many bands cover it over the years! That gem kicks off the album, which then rolls into the monster funky "part 2", which is even better! Other titles are equally wonderful – and include "Come Down", "Surrey Ride", "Monkey Tamarind", and "In The Deep". Essential – and one that you'll be spinning for years! LP, Vinyl record album

The set's got a wilder sound than any of his other work – kind of a righteous funk set for the dancefloor – recorded with lots of weird production touches, edgey guitar bits, and a style that's almost psychedelic-folk-jazz-disco! Birdsong's lyrics are more "out there" than ever, and there's some great spacey production that really makes the whole thing sound great – and which gives the record a very cool feel that's unlike anything else we can think of. A real lost treasure from the 70s indie underground – with titles that include "Dance Of Survival", "What's Your Sign", "Night Of The Full Moon", "Astral Walk", and "Your Smile Gave Birth To My Idea".

The beats are lean, the vocals are clean, and the record's got a tight snap all the way through – that hip fusion of modes that Aloe Blacc's been serving up for years, but which may well push him towards an even bigger audience this time around – thanks to the album's sharp production, and his ever-increasing songwriting talents.

A killer bit of early funk from the great Hamilton Bohannon – and quite possibly his greatest album ever – a really unique approach to funky rhythms, with a sound that's unlike anything else we can think of! The album's got a slower funk sound than Bohannon's later disco groove a few years later – and the wonderful rhythms mix together scattershot drums with funky wah wah guitar, organ, and hard-plugging basslines – all in a blend that's pretty mindblowing not just for its instrumental dexterity, but also for the way it brings complex patterns together in a really hypnotic way! All cuts are instrumentals, save for a few chorus vocals – and players on the album include Wah Wah Watson, Ray Parker, Travis Biggs, and Mose Davis. Bohannon's on drums and percussion – and titles include "The Pimp Walk", "Stop & Go", "Getting to the Other Side", "It's Time For Peace", "Save Their Souls", and "Singing a Song for My Mother".

New Booker T & The MGsMcLemore Avenue ... LP
Stax, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $15.99 17.98
The Beatles had Abbey Road – and Booker T & The MGs had McLemore Ave, the main street running outside the Stax studios, and a fitting title for the album that has them playing tunes from The Beatles' incredible Abbey Road album. If you've ever thought that Abbey Road was a soft-rock lowpoint in the Beatles' career, consider how many soul and jazz artists either covered the whole album, performed songs from it, or referenced it in their album covers. This little gem is proof that the compositions already had a life of their own within a short time of the release of the record – as Book and crew take the Beatles' tunes to whole new heights, working them together into a complicated batch of grooves that really pushes past their earlier work on Stax. Who knows, perhaps The Beatles were just the kick that Book needed – we can't ever tell the whole story, but we can say that the record marks a strong turning point for the group, and is well worth having for a variety of reasons. Titles include "The End", "You Never Give Me Your Money", "Because", "I Want You/She's So Heavy", and "Polythene Pam". LP, Vinyl record album

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

Damn, is this a great record! The album's not only one of the best blacksploitation soundtracks ever recorded, it's also one of James Brown's funkiest outings of the early 70s! Nearly every cut's a winner, and James gets some very funky help from The JBs, who groove hard on the best instrumental cuts, plus Lyn Collins, who sings a sock version of "Mama Feelgood" that's worth the price of the record alone! Includes the classic "Down & Out in New York City", plus "Blind Man Can See It", "Sportin' Life", "The Boss", "Dirty Harri", and "Chase". LP, Vinyl record album

One of the wilder James Brown instrumental LPs from the late King period. The James Brown Band is fronted by a heavy fuzzy guitar sound, which gives the LP a sort of rock-break feel, with nice fuzzy electric tones. All tracks are by James and Dave Matthews, and the record is sort of a second album by Matthews' Grodeck Whipperjenny group. Titles include "Can Mind", "Don't Mind", "Bob Scoward", and "Just Enough Room for Storage". Wild, and tough to find these days, too! LP, Vinyl record album

James BrownSlaughter's Big Rip-Off ... LP
Polydor, 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $9.99
Easily one of the funkiest albums that James Brown ever recorded – and one of his few entries into the blacksploitation genre of the 70s! James really outdid himself for this one – working at a hard burning pace that had the JBs cooking up some killer funk for just about every number in the set – and which also has James himself stepping out vocally for a few key tracks. The album features the massive groover "People Get Up and Drive Your Funky Soul" – a slamming track that beats nearly every number in the JB 70s catalog – plus other cuts that include "To My Brother", "Brother Rapp", "Sexy Sexy Sexy", "Slaughter Theme", "Transmogrification", "King Slaughter", and "How Long Can I Keep It Up".

Budos BandBudos Band 2 ... LP
Daptone, 2007. New Copy ... $12.99
One of the hippest groups going in the deep funk underground – a combo who play way more than just conventional funk – and who manage to embrace a whole host of classic influences at once! Echoes of older Latin, African, and soundtrack-styled grooves sift together beautifully in this second album from The Budos Band – all in an approach that's totally unified, and which borrows the best elements from other modes to create a whole new Budos-styled sound! The album's all instrumental, but it's far more evocative than most vocal funk sessions we can think of – and the group's horns are tighter than ever, with a slightly exotic feel that creates some real otherworldly moments. Titles include "Ride Or Die", "Budos Rising", "Chicago Falcon", "King Cobra", "Origin Of Man", "Deep In The Sand", "My Girl", and "Mas O Menos". LP, Vinyl record album

Keni BurkeChanges ... LP
RCA, 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99 12.98
A standout solo moment from the amazing Keni Burke – an artist who's come a long way from his youthful start in the 5 Stairsteps! Keni had recorded other adult work by the time of this early 80s set, but Changes is easily his best-remembered album – a masterpiece of 80s groove, all arranged and produced by Burke – who also played a fair bit of the music on the set as well! The tunes are upbeat and grooving – often with a rhythm that goes nicely right down the middle, and never tries to be too funky or clubby. This groove is epitomized by Burke's classic "Risin' To The Top" – a tune that's been sampled heavily over the years, to great fame – and which is probably the lasting legacy of this set. But the whole album's totally great – sophisticated 80s groove at its best – with other cuts that include "Who Do You Love", "Shakin", "Can't Get Enough", "Changes", "All Night", and "Hang Tight".

Sonnenzimmer, 2013. New Copy ... $18.99
A pretty compelling record from the Chicago scene – one that brings together the city's historical music roots and some of the best improvisers working today! Side one features these cool little cuts from Nick Butcher – made up of "microsamples" of older Chicago jazz and house records, and really deconstructed so that you can hardly hear a trace of the original sounds at all – nicely obtuse, and sounding a lot like Nick was working from scratch! Side two features other musicians each given a track from side one, then encouraged to play their own live improvised take on the track – each with a very different flavor! So on the first half, you've got Nick serving up cuts like "Cozy Kitchen", "Great Lake", "Formats", and "Implements" – and side two features 6 solo numbers, each with a different artist – Jason Adasiewicz on vibes, Keefe Jackson on tenor, Jason Roebke on bass, Tim Daisy on marimba, Jason Stein on bass clarinet, and Mike Reed on drums! Very nice package, too – with a hand-printed die-cut cover and sleeve! LP, Vinyl record album

Jerry Butler/Jerry PetersMelinda – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Pride, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
One of Jerry Butler's funkiest moments of the 70s – served up in a fantastic soundtrack co-penned and arranged by the great Jerry Peters! Peters is best known for his hip work with a variety of soul acts in the studio, but he really steps out here for the score to Melinda – a lesser-known blacksploitation film from the early 70s, but one that boasts a heck of a great soundtrack! Peters approach here is a bit more baroque than some of his contemporaries – and he uses stepping strings equally alongside funky rhythms – creating a groove that's complicated, yet still plenty darn funky – and a sound that's as soulful on the mellower tunes as it is on the standout uptempo ones. Jerry Butler sings vocals on "Speak Truth To The People", "Tank's Theme", "Love is", and "Melinda Reprise" – but the instrumental tracks are even better, and inlcude the clavinet groover "Part III", the sitar-styled "Melinda Latino", and the cuts "Music For Tank's Boat", "The Blues (Dope Pusher's Theme)", and "I Can't Let You Go".

Polydor, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Stunning! Although many know Bobby Byrd as the longtime associate of James Brown, and although his singles do turn up from time to time on compilations, this one and only album by him is super-rare. The album's a live recording (although we've never been sure if it's not one of James Brown's "fake" live projects, with studio tracks and applause added in) – and it contains a killer batch of funky tracks like "I Need Help (I Can't Do It Alone)" (parts 1 & 2), "Funky Soul", "My Concerto", "You Got To Have A Job (If You Don't Work, You Can't Eat)", and "Hang Ups We Don't Need (The Hungry We've Got To Feed)". Loads of breakbeats, and a killer funky groove with Bobby singing in a style that's as great as James Brown's best funky stuff from the time, but with a darker edge to it. Classic stuff, and an unbelievable one to have on low-priced reissue! LP, Vinyl record album

Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $26.99
Sublime sounds from Clarence Carter – wonderful work from his singles for Fame Records – a wealth of great music from a time when Carter was really coming into his own! Clarence was great right from the start, but here you can really hear him finding his own voice – that all-knowing, storytelling approach that could make even a simple lyric spin out in a way that was totally captivating – with a quality that set Carter apart from some of his more tear-jerked southern soul contemporaries, into a space of class and confidence that would serve him well for years to come! Every number here was recorded at the Fame Studios, with the kind of killer backings you'd expect from the Muscle Shoals team – and the 2LP set features 24 titles that include "Slip Away", "Looking For A Fox", "The Feeling Is Right", "Snatching It Back", "Patches", "I Found What I Wanted", "Look What I Got", "Too Weak To Fight", "I'm Qualified", "Tell Daddy", "Think About It", and lots more!

Don CherryMu Second Part ... LP
BYG/Actuel, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Don Cherry really breaks out here on his classic Mu sessions from France – using the new freedoms of post-68 Paris to explore themes at a level that would set the tone for generations to come! The album's very spare, and very improvised – with Cherry on pocket trumpet, piano, and wooden flute – plus a bit of percussion too – alongside drummer Ed Blackwell, who's equally unbridled – showing a huge evolution since the time both he and Don spent in the group of Ornette Coleman! There's a few echoes of the global elements that Cherry would later embrace more strongly in the 70s – but the core energy here is mostly improvised jazz, handled at a level that really makes a lot better use of the freedom than some of Don's contemporaries. Titles on this second part include "Bamboo Night", "The Mysticism Of My Sound", "Psycho Drama", "Smiling Faces Going Places", "Teo Teo Can", and "Dollar Brand/Spontaneous Composing/Exert Man On The Moon".

Shadybrook, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A totally righteous little record – the only set we've ever seen from Native American vocalist Cheyenne Fowler – and a wicked blend of jazz, soul, and funk – tied together with a really positive spirit! Gene Russell had a hand in putting the set together, and you can definitely hear some echoes of his more spiritual work in the music – and like some of the best underground acts of the 70s, Cheyenne has a way of mixing up all the hippest elements of the left side of the spectrum – then coming up with a sound that's deeply personal, and really unique! The best cuts on the record have a jazz funk approach to soul – with funky keyboard grooving, wah-wah guitar, and tasty horn flourishes over the top – and although Cheyenne's not the greatest vocalist in the world technically, she's got a strong and proud style that really carries the record. Titles include "I Don't Speak With Forked Tongue", "Cheyenne's Coming", "Grooving With You", "It Ain't All About That", "Come Back To Me", "I Love You But I Gotta Go", and "Dream Street".

Quite possibly the crowning masterpiece by The Clash – and a record that certainly pushed them out of the punk rock ghetto and into the collections of countless mainstream folks over the years! This is the set that really pushed the group over the top – the one that harnessed all the best energy of the previous two records and gave it a strong new focus – one that draws on roots as deep as the late 50s Elvis reference of the cover art, but which also bubbled over with newly approaching 80s musical ideas and politics! Yet the message never gets in the way of the guitar-heavy tuneful appeal of the songs – ringing out for decades on classics like "Train In Vain", "London Calling", "Spanish Bombs", "Lost In The Supermarket", "Guns Of Brixton", "Clampdown", and "Rudy Can't Fail".

Johnny ColonBoogaloo Blues ... LP
Cotique, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A landmark record that should be in any Latin collection! At the time of this album, Johnny Colon was a young trombonist just getting his start – working in the turbulent late 60s Spanish Harlem scene, and picking up on the wide range of styles going down in the hood. At one level, he was a straight player with a love for the sound of the early 60s descarga era – but at another, he was a young kid absorbing all the soul, funk, and drug influences that were coming out of other groups at the time. The result is a really amazing album with a slow, sinister groove that's unlike anything else we can think of. Tracks roll over one another with uncanny beats and a sad and soulful feel – shifting between English and Spanish to reflect the speech patterns of the members of the band – and really opening up with some killer grooves that have made the album a treasure for years! Titles include "Judy (part 2)", "Canallon", "Jumpy", "Boogaloo Blues", "Descarga", and "Mi Querida Bomba". LP, Vinyl record album

A classic slice of Jamaican roots! No collection of Lee Perry's work is complete without this chapter, which has been hard to get in spite of being reissued in a number of different formats. This version features a slight twist on the original cover art, but is an expanded double LP set with a bonus disc of later self-produced material. On the original album, recorded at the Black Ark in 1976, Cedric Mytton teams up with Roy Johnson on harmony vocals, with Lee Perry steering the Ark with a heavyweight supporting crew, for a true milestone in Jamaican music, and a classic of universal proportions. The second LP features material from 4 different sessions, all great, with tracks from the 1979 LPs Cvongo Ashanti and Image of Africa, the 1981 LP Face The Music and a couple of tracks from 1999. 22 tracks in all, including "Fisherman", "Congoman", "Open Up The Gate", "Children Crying", "La La Bam-Bam", "Can't Come In", "Sodom & Gomorrow", "The Wrong Thing", "ArkOf Covenant", "Don't Blame On I", "Solid Foundation", "Days Chasing Days", "Youth Man", "Only Jah Know", "Music Maker", "Stay Alive (ext)", "Problems", "Face The Music", "Enemy & Spy (ext)" and "Aaron & Moses (ext)".

Now Again, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
An amazing reissue of this now-legendary album – once a lost psych oddity, but a set that's gone onto make plenty of waves over the years! Song Of A Gypsy may well be one of the best self-issued psych sets from the American underground – a really well-written, well-recorded record that has a very dark personal vision – an approach to the music that's instantly unique, and which shows that digging for rare psych albums can really yield the occasional gem that stands head and shoulders with the bigger names of the time! Damon's voice is darkly spooky, and couched with these cool flanged-out guitar lines on the sides – creating a space that's very personal, and which seems to let the lyrics hit these qualities that go much deeper than usual. Titles include "Song Of A Gypsy", "Funky Funky Blues", "Don't You Feel Me", "The Night", "Feel Your Love", "Oh What A Good Boy Am I", and "Birds Fly So High". LP, Vinyl record album

Killer work from Betty Davis – one of the most impressive female funk talents ever! If you ever needed a definition of funk, this record may well be it – snapping drums, sharp-edged guitars, and sex-filled basslines that slink and slide all over the bottom of the grooves – a perfect setting for Betty's incredible vocals – which themselves have a smokey, raspy quality that's completely unique! At times, Davis is almost speaking, but at others she's practically screaming – belting out the lyrics in a way that makes you feel like you're sharing some space with her at the end of the bar as she gets more and more wound up about issues and people who are on her mind. And as if the vocals weren't enough, the backings are incredible too – filled with drum breaks and basslines that few other albums can match – all wrapped around badass tunes that include "Shoo-B-Doop & Cop Him", "He Was A Big Freak", "70's Blues", "Git In There", "Special People", "Don't Call Her No Tramp", and "Your Mama Wants Ya Back".

Yet somehow, over all the years, and all those playings, the record manages to still sound fantastic – a truly inspirational piece of music that's long deserved all the attention it gets! The legendary group on the album includes John Coltrane on tenor, Cannonball Adderley on alto, Bill Evans on piano, and Paul Chambers on bass – working with Miles in a relatively modal style, with brilliant rhythm changes and a wonderful sense of space. The whole thing's sublime – and titles include "Blue In Green", "All Blues", "So What", and "Freddie Freeloader". LP, Vinyl record album

A massive moment for Miles Davis – legendary live performances at both the Fillmore East and Fillmore West from 1970 – presented here in their entirety for the first time ever! Part of the record features Miles' work that appeared in edited form on the Miles Davis At Fillmore record – but issued here without the edits, so that you can really hear the group take off in unbridled, Bitches Brew-like energy – served up by a lineup that includes Steve Grossman on tenor and soprano sax, Chick Corea on Fender Rhodes, Keith Jarrett on organ, Dave Holland on bass, Jack DeJohnette on drums, and Airto on percussion and flute. The set then also includes material recorded in April at the Fillmore West – but all unissued tracks, and not the material that was on the Black Beauty album at all. These tracks feature a similar lineup, but without Keith Jarrett – on a few long tracks. The set separates out all the tunes with great clarity and better mastering than before – and adds 100 minutes to the Fillmore East set. Titles include "Directions", "The Mask", "It's About That Time", "Bitches Brew", "Spanish Key", "Sanctuary", "I Fall In Love Too Easily", "Footprints", "Paraphernalia", "Miles Runs The Voodoo Down", "Willie Nelson", and "The Theme".

A great counterpart to the rare Stanton Davis Ghetto Mysticism album – and a set that was recorded right around the same time, with a number of previously unreleased tracks! The spiritual energy of that group has been well-loved by collectors for years – and enjoyed by others thanks to a recent reissue – and this sweet batch of rare cuts really augments that rare musical moment, by offering up a further set of completely cosmic grooves! The style is spacey jazz funk with some deeper elements in the mix – all recorded and arranged with an indie vibe that reminds us a lot of the classic Oneness Of Juju albums on Black Fire, but without as much vocals – just a strong focus on the sweet keyboard lines and soaring horn passages. Some tracks are brand new, others are different versions of themes from the Brighter Days album – and titles include "Delta Six/Brighter Days", "Isis Voyage", "Odwalla", "Things Can Not Stop Forever (Al Kent version)", "High Jazz (reprise – alt mix)", "Things Cannot Stop Forever (inst mix)", and "Funky Fried Tofu (alt inst version)".

The album's their first full collaboration with legendary producer Thom Bell – and it's got a sound that's summed up perfectly in the quintessential cut "La La Means I Love You" – and which is followed through beautifully on a batch of tracks that includes "Losing You", "Can You Remember", "You're Gone", "I'm Sorry", and "Break Your Promise".

It features material captured on a 2 night stand at The Beach Club in Myrtle Beach, SC in July of 1963 – raw and rambunctious, with the band pummeling fast and furious on some numbers and taking others into more of a gutbuckety bluesy vibe that's something else entirely.

Pure and lovely sounds from the early days of Durutti Column – music from a time when guitarist Vini Reilly's conception was quite fresh, and deeply personal – so much so, his music really stood out amidst the darker sounds of his post-punk generation! As with the first Durutti Column album on Factory Records, this one often features Reilly's electric guitar overdubbed in cool ways – spare, but flowing – almost as if he's a Pat Metheny for the UK underground – but serving up short songs that are never overindulgent. But unlike the first record, Reilly also sings a bit – with this light, haunting style that's surprisingly compelling – one of those rare cases where a thin voice can often carry a lot of power – especially with spare instrumentation like this. Titles include the sublime "Missing Boy" – plus "Sketch For Dawn", "Jacqueline", "Messidor", "The Act Committed", "Detail For Paul", and "Portrait For Frazer". LP, Vinyl record album

There's a tightness here that goes beyond the sound of Enchantment in previous years – yet the sound is also still pretty underground too – more electro soul than chart R&B, thanks to excellent use of keyboards and basslines – and a strong focus on the kind of heavy bottom groove that kept these guys spinning strong on the dancefloors, even when they weren't cracking radio as much. A few mellower numbers recall their great strength with a ballad – and show that their vocals can still open up beautifully when needed – and the whole thing's got a well-balanced groove that's kept the record strong for years. Titles include "Here's Your Chance", "Give It Up", "Come Be My Lover", "Don't Fight The Feeling", "I'm Dreaming", and "Gotta Find A Love". LP, Vinyl record album

Fabulous CountsJan Jan ... LP
Cotillion, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A stunner of a funk album – a must-have for any fan of all things funky! This is the one-and-only record cut by the Fabulous Counts, a version of the Counts before they recorded for Westbound – and nearly every cut is a funky 45-type gem! The group's got a hard and heavy sound that mixed conga grooving at the bottom, guitar jamming in the middle, and lots of funky horns over the top – and the instrumental sound of the record is a non-stop funky party all the way through – all top-shelf material all the way through, with a sound that few other combos can match! The title track is an awesome groover – and the record features lots of other nice ones, like "Dirty Red", "Who's Making Love", "Girl From Kenya', "The Other Thing", "Scrambled Eggs", and "The Bite".

Fatback BandKeep On Steppin' ... LP
Event/Southbound (UK), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99
Quite possibly the last really hard-hitting funk album from The Fatback Band – and although their first record on the Event label, a set that cooks every bit as hard as their first few for Perception! The style here is funky 45 soul at its best – lots of hard crackling drums, funky rumpling bass, and enough choppy guitar to level a whole forest in one swoop! Lyrics are part of most numbers, but they're often in the bad-rapping or call and response mode of the People Music album – except for a few sweeter numbers which also sound pretty nice too! "Keep On Stepping" is a great little funky number – as are "Wicky Wacky", "Mr. Bass Man", and "New York Style". We also love the sweet soul track "Love", which has some great vocals, a great hook, and which sounds like a tune from their Feel My Soul LP! Other tracks include "Can't Stop The Flame", "Feeling", and "Breaking Up With Someone You Love Is Hard To Do". LP, Vinyl record album

New Fela & Africa 70Expensive Sh*t (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Knitting Factory, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $17.99 19.98
A real classic from the great Fela Kuti – a seminal mid 70s record that not only shows his impeccable sense of rhythm, but also his sense of rage as well! The title track – "Expensive Sh_t" – is Fela's answer to the time that he got busted for dope, and was forced to take a dump for the cops in order to "produce the goods" (which he had cleverly hidden in his stomach). The track has a great choppy funk groove, and is filled with the kind of raw anger you can imagine that the subject matter would produce – rich emotion that not only comes out in the lyrics, but also the sharp instrumental solos! The other track on the album – "Water No Get Enemy" – is another fantastic one, with cool electric piano solos, great tenor work, and a slinkily vamping groove. LP, Vinyl record album

Lee FieldsEmma Jean (colored vinyl with download) ... LP
Truth & Soul, 2014. New Copy ... $17.99 18.99
An amazing chapter in the career of Lee Fields – an artist who's been moving our souls for decades, but who just keeps on growing in these really great ways! Unlike the fragile style of My World, or the heady southern soul of Faithful Man, Emma Jean's got this very different vibe – laidback, and definitely with a southern twinge – but with this mellow style that almost takes us back to country soul experiments of artists like Bobby Womack or Joe Tex in the 60s! Not that the style is straight country soul, though – because the backing is by El Michels, who have a strong funk pedigree – but who work with Fields here in this slow-stepping mode that really builds up energy – delivering Lee's vocals with all the power of before, but in an even more personal way. The result is another amazing set from an artist who never falters for a minute – and one of the few contemporary singers who can ever match the depth and strengths of 60s deep soul greats. Titles include "Standing By Your Side", "Just Can't Win", "In The Woods", "Stone Angel", "It Still Gets Me Down", "Don't Leave Me This Way", "Eye To Eye", and "Paralyzed". LP, Vinyl record album

BYG, Early 70s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $11.99
Great work by the team of Brigitte Fontaine and Areski Belcam – two of the most enigmatic talents you'll ever hear on record! The album's the only one they ever recorded that wasn't issued by the Saravah label – and it's a fantastic blend of otherworldly vocals with spare instrumentation that includes electric piano, flute, bandoneon, and percussion – wrapped together wonderfully with a haunting sound that's just amazing. Even if you don't understand French, the sound and style of the voices are more than enough to keep you captivated – and the album is some of the most indescribably beautiful music we can think of! Titles include "Le Borgais", "L'Abeille", "Les Petites Madones", "Le 6 Septembre", and "Ragilia". LP, Vinyl record album

George FreemanFranticdiagnosis ... LP
Bam-Boo, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A legendary bit of funk – and a killer record from one of the most unique guitarists ever! George Freeman's got a sound and a style unlike any other player we can think of – an approach to funky guitar that's often got a really hard touch on the strings, and which gets nice and noisy at the best funky moments. Freeman's probably best known for the few obscure records he cut with Groove Holmes, but this album's his out and out masterpiece – a rare one-off session cut in the funky Philly scene and supervised by DJ Sonny Hopson – and featuring a rare mix of players that includes Cesar Frazier on organ and Charles Earland on Arp! The mix of organ and Arp is really incredible – especially on the side-long jammer "Franticdiagnosis", which runs for nearly 20 minutes, and is one of the most messed-up funky jazz jams of the 70s! Other players include Von Freeman on tenor sax and Dave Hubbard on alto flute – and the album features the legendary jazz dance track "The Bump", plus the cuts "Free-Man" and "God Bless The Child".

FunkadelicMaggot Brain (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Westbound/4 Men With Beards, 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $15.99 18.98
Amazing stuff – and arguably the greatest early Funkadelic album ever! The set moves past the simple fuzzy style of the group's debut, and the overly-stoned sound of Free Your Mind – and rockets into a heady funk style that's filled with sly social commentary and an incredibly dark vision of the future! The centerpiece of the album is the mindblowing "Maggot Brain" title track – a tune that begins with a chilling spoken intro, then slowly builds amidst washes and washes of post-Hendrix guitar. That cut then rolls into some shorter, funkier numbers that rank with some of the group's best ever – using the device of party-hearty energy to convey a sense of alienation and horror at the world. The whole thing's brilliant throughout – and apart from being a soul classic, the set should also rank as one of the greatest rock albums of all time! Titles include "Maggot Brain", "Super Stupid", "Back in Our Minds", "Can You Get to That", and "Wars of Armageddon". LP, Vinyl record album

Pop Art, 1982. New Copy (reissue)... $2.99
80s groove from the Ingram Family – a record that features the core vocals of Ron Aikens and Galaxy, plus plenty of great backing funk from the Ingrams! The style here is a great mix of boogie, street soul, and bits of electro – with a style that's a bit like Aleem from the same period, but a bit funkier overall. Ron's lead vocals can be nice and sweet on the mellower tracks, and on the funkier ones the rest of the trio come in and chant with the chorus in a sweet ensemble mode. There's also plenty of great keyboards in the mix too – some with great squishy and splashy bits that really make the tunes sound great! Butch Ingram produced, and titles include "We're Here To Rock You", "You Got It", "Party", "Spend Some Time", "Come Let Me Love You", and "Give Your Dog A Bone". LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie GaleBlack Rhythm Happening (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Blue Note/4 Men With Beards, 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $15.99 18.99
One of the most righteous albums of jazz ever recorded – a brilliant blend of soulful and avant garde styles, backed up by a chorus of voices that have a really soulful sound! The album's the second recorded for Blue Note by the Ghetto Music ensemble of trumpeter Eddie Gale – a lesser-known talent who recorded previously with Cecil Taylor, but who made a turn away from modernism at the end of the 60s, in order to express himself at a level that he felt was more clearly grounded in the people. The result of that effort is sheer brilliance – an album that sounds like nothing else you can imagine. Part of the style shares the energy of similar vocal/jazz projects by Max Roach and Billy Harper, but Gale's conception of the music is much more dynamic, and very carefully rooted in song structures – with a sound that's as powerful today as it was when it was recorded! Titles include "Ghetto Love Night", "Song Of Will", "Ghetto Summertime", "Black Rhythm Happening", and "Look At Teyonda". LP, Vinyl record album

Jef Gilson & OthersChansons De Jazz (10" LP pressing) ... LP
Jazzman (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $14.99
Some of the coolest, grooviest work we've ever heard from French jazz arranger Jef Gilson – a whole host of tunes he performed in collaboration with different singers – a few of which are previously unreleased, and appear here for the first time! The music is a great change from the pop of the "yeh yeh" generation in France – and shows that if you know where to look, you can find some really great vocal work in the Parisian scene – music that bristles with all the best modern touches of Gilson's instrumental inclinations, and which almost points the way towards the hip mix of styles to come from the Saravah Records generation. Instrumentation is mostly small combo, and very jazzy – and vocals are either in French, or wordless and scatting. Titles include "Yada Nouga" by Tshura, "Le Blanc Coton" by Celia, "J'En Ai Assez" by Beatrice Amy, "Modo Azul" by Anna Maria Bondi, "Dans La Niege Et Le Vent" by Grazilella, and a few more great tunes by unknown singers!

Great stuff – and Jerry Goldsmith's score for the film is equally nice – with a mixture of orchestral themes and other tunes that feature some nice moogy bits that sound all weird, spacey, and very very cool! Tracks include "The Dome", "On The Circuit", "The Sun", "The Truth", "End Of The City", and "Love Theme From Logan's Run", a sexy slinky number arranged by Jimmie Haskell! Plus, the whole thing comes in a very groovy cover, too! LP, Vinyl record album

Cool compelling grooves from Grazia – sung in Turkish, released in late 70s Israel, and a mad mix of styles throughout! The backings have some of the exotic elements you'd hear in Turkish rock from a few years before, but there's also a tighter studio presentation too – not really commercial, or slick – but definitely well-done for Grazia's youthful vocals – in a way that lets her amazing range pack plenty of punch! Bits of moog and other electric instruments mix with more folksy touches – in a sound that's definitely other-worldly, and far beyond any simple description we can offer. Titles include "Rampi Rampi", "Arkadas", "Gidis O Gidisse", "Kemangi", "Soyle Beni", and "Istemem". LP, Vinyl record album

Cobblestone, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
This one was recorded in 1968, issued briefly on a small label, and then finally pressed for the larger masses during the early 70s by the Cobblestone label. Despite this checkered history, though, the album's one of Green's best small group recordings – and features a classic jazz organ trio sound, and features Green's guitar with the organ of John Patton and the drumming of Ben Dixon. We can't imagine a better combo, especially as the three of them were one of the best teams ever to put out soul jazz sessions for Blue Note! The record includes the version of "High Heel Sneakers" that has shown up on a few comps over the years, plus the tracks "Work Song", "Iron City", and "Old Man Moses". The feel is very similar to some of Green's Blue Notes, with a very classic sound. LP, Vinyl record album

The group are really maturing here – and the mix of Smile-era songs and some of their later ones is really great – a wonderful follow-up to material explored on Friends, and a great hint at the genius to come on Sunflower. The album's essential listening if you dig post-Pet Sounds Beach Boys – especially before they hit their mix of nostalgia and indulgence in the 70s – and titles include the sublime "Cabinessence", plus "Do It Again", "I Can Hear Music", "Be With Me", "All I Want To Do", "I Want To Sleep", and "The Nearest Faraway Place".

A fantastic album from this legendary jazz funk combo – a bit smoother than their first, but that's the great thing about it! The record has the band getting even tighter than before – coming up with an amazing jazz-inflected funk groove that still leaves us breathless after all these years – and which is the perfect fusion of jazz and soul that was going down with the best groups in the mid 70s. The best example of this sound can be heard on the massive cut "Rock Creek Park" – which begins with a wonderful bass on the intro, a killer moogy keyboard bit, and a super-catchy chorus that goes "doin' it in the park," which you should recognize in about 30 seconds! The rest of the album is great too – and titles include the classic sample track "Love So Fine" – plus "Happy Music", "Hash and Eggs", "Thankful Bout Yourself", and "All I Ask".

James BrownGet On Up – The James Brown Story ... LP
Polydor/Universal, Late 50s/1960s/1970s. New Copy ... Around September 2, 2014
A set put together as the soundtrack for the James Brown bio-pic – but one that features mostly original recordings by The Godfather himself, and a few older cuts altered a bit for the film! The groove runs from early 60s soul to early 70s funk – and there's a fair bit of live tracks, which go well to display James at his vibrant concert best. About a quarter of the material seems to be vintage recordings, augmented with some new performances or vocals to fit the scenes in the film – but these fit well alongside the classics, to a point where there's hardly much discernable difference (as well as little in the notes to explain them as well.) Tracks include "Sex Machine", "Mother Popcorn (part 1)", "It's A Man's Man's Man's World (live)", "I Got The Feelin (live)", "Soul Power (live)", "Try Me (live)", "Please Please Please", "Get Up Offa That Thing", "I Can't Stand Myself (live)", and "I Got You".

Shady/Interscope, 2002. New Copy (reissue)... Late October, 2014
How 50 manages to stand out as such a genuinely exciting MC is in such a crowded field of street hip hop is as mysterious as it is beside the point. Dr. Dre's recent love for that minimalist ghetto synth orchestra sound is in full depth here, this is probably as strong as any production work he's ever done, layered right over 50's denser, more blunted underground style with G Unit. This isn't just a production triumph though – 50's lazy, amused and knowing delivery is as infectious as it is instantly identifiable (something we can't say for latter day Nas and the like) – and is no more derivative than any other gunshot-accented work out there. Slim says it best on one of his guest spots when he calls 50 the "juggernaut of this rap isht whether you like it or not".

Red Garland's piano was certainly humming strong at the time of this session – as Red's trio were one of the key rhythm components of many Prestige albums of the late 50s, but also a real starring act on their own! The album's got a laidback, almost mellow feel that's a bit different from some of the Garland accompaniment on horn-based sessions – a style that's introspective, but always spirited – sprightly, but never flowery – that magical style that allowed Garland to bridge different worlds of jazz piano in the 50s. Paul Chambers is a perfect accompaniment here on bass, Art Taylor's work on drums is a masterpiece of understatement, and although the titles are all familiar, they're certainly given a special Garland touch! Titles include "The Very Thought Of You", "If I Were A Bell", "Please Send Me Someone To Love", "I Know Why", and "I Can't Give You Anything But Love". LP, Vinyl record album

She also shines extremely well on the original cuts, though – especially the funky classic "Rock Me Again & Again & Again", plus the often-overlooked mellow soul groovers "To Each His Own", "Put It On The Line", and "How Long Can I Keep It Up".

A great batch of early 70s grooves from Thailand – all produced by Theppabutr Satirodchompu – and it's one of the best compilations of Thai music we've ever stocked! By focusing on the work of one legendary producer – over the span of just a few years – the set has nicely cohesive vibe. That said, it's a quite expansive sound!

Raw drums, bells and other hand percussion lie underneath bursts of horns, woozy organs and other textures.
