Brother To BrotherShades In Creation ... LP
Turbo, 1977. Near Mint- ... $3.99
Not the greatest album by this East Coast funk band – and one that shows them hitting a bit more of a crossover club sound, with lots of up-tempo funk tracks that kind of aim for a disco groove. Fortunately, the instrumentation's pretty good – and the album actually has some nice mellow grooves with a decent enough jazzy feel. Titles include "Dancin Singin", "We Love To Party", "Brother To Brother", "Vibrations", and "I'm Gonna Take Your Love". LP, Vinyl record album

RCA, 1969. Used ... $3.99
Jefferson Airplane flying high in the late 60s – and Crown Of Creation was both a creative and commercial triumph for the band – balancing the tripped out adventurousness of their earlier work, with a more focused approach! Front loaded with moodier, acoustic-based songs that build into heavier rock as the record plays on – with some really great use of sound effects for added drama here and there! Titles include "Lather", "In Time", "Star Track", "Chushingura", "If You Feel", "Ice Cream Phoenix", "The House At Pooniel Corners" and more. CD

9th CreationBubble Gum ... CD
Rite Track/Solaris, 1975. New Copy ... $12.99 15.98
A classic album of jazzed-up funk – the one lasting legacy by this oft-sampled group! 9th Creation originally hailed from west of the Bay Area scene of the 70s – and this album was recorded in Oakland with the same sweet jazzy finish as work by some of the other big Northern California funk acts of the time – especially Pleasure, who with their sharp sense of a groove are probably the closest comparison to the group's sound. The album is best known for the cut "Bubble Gum" – a great number with lots of jazzy changes, and a modern funky groove that still sounds pretty darn fresh – but the whole album is totally great, and filled with plenty of other songs that have the same feel as the title cut! Tracks include "Sexy Girl", "Quit It", "Falling In Love", "We Need Love", and "Rule Of Mind". CD

Mushroom/Warner (Australia), 1990/1993/1997/2002. New Copy 4 CDs ... $42.99
A great run of work from Archie Roach – one of the most important talents to come from the Australian rock scene in the 90s – heard here on four albums recorded for Mushroom Records, plus a host of bonus tracks as well! Archie's got a rootsy style that's not only timeless, but also has a surprising global range – that depth of songwriting and expression that brewed up in Australia over decades, then almost surprised the world when Roach and his generation (including Paul Kelly) got more worldwide exposure. The 4CD set features 51 tracks in all, plus great notes – the albums Charcoal Lane, Jamu Dreaming, Looking For Butter Boy, and Sensual Being – plus demo tracks, live recordings, and early cassette songs!

New Bulbous CreationYou Won't Remember Dying (with bonus download) ... LP
Numero, 1969. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A record that definitely lives up to the promise of its cover – especially the creepy image of a skeleton shooting up on the front! Bulbous Creation hail from the same Kansas scene documented on Numero's Cavern Sound compilation – but unlike some of the other groups, they've got more than enough going on to offer up a full album here – a really heady, tripped-out batch of music that may well be some of the weirdest ever recorded in that legendary cave in Missouri! The production is almost a bit muddy at times – or maybe it's the way the instruments are performed – which creates this even more sinister feel to the whole thing – as if you've surprised the group during a very private moment, or stumbled upon them performing some ritual in the woods! The song titles say an awful lot about the record, too – and include "Satan", "Hooked", "Under The Black Sun", "Fever Machine Man", and "End Of The Page". LP, Vinyl record album

New Oliver LakeNTU – Point From Which Creation Begins ... CD
Passin' Thru/Universal Sound (UK), 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Reedman Oliver Lake at his most creative – stepping out here on a sublime set of 70s improvisations – all put together with a really spiritual feel! There's a very open, collaborative feel to the music – and the set was recorded in St Louis, at a time when Lake was a key part of that city's scene – and who here also seems able to attract some other musicians from the AACM in Chicago as well! As a result, the album's a wonderful document of the new ideas bursting forth at the start of the 70s – that richly creative moment when local scenes were coming together in various cities to find new ways of jazz beyond Coltrane and Dolphy – giving a player like Lake some of the most imaginative outlets of his career. Oliver plays alto, soprano, flute, and other small instruments – and other players include Baikida Carroll and Floyd Leflore on trumpets, Joseph Bowie on trombone, John Hicks on piano, Clovis Bordeaux on electric piano, Don Officer on bass, Charles Bobo Shaw on drums, and Don Moye on congas too. Titles include "Africa", "Tse Lane", "Eriee", "Zip", and "Electric Freedom". CD

Nikki SuddenTexas/Dead Men Tell No Tales (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Creation/Secretly Canadian, 1986/1987. New Copy 2 CDs ... $12.99 16.98
Nikki Sudden's first couple records for the Creation label – the hugely influential, if somewhate modest selling Texas and Dead Men Tell No Tales – in 2CD set, with a lot of excellent bonus tracks! Sudden was always one to balance experimental creative tendencies with more immediately engaging classic rock influences, going back to his days in Swell Map, and those strengths are in full force here in the mid-to-late 80s. Jangly guitars and emotionally resonant lyricism abound, and you can truly sense the impact he had on some of best indie rock songwriters of the late 80s onward. Essential stuff! Texas includes "Jangle Town", "Death Is Hanging Over Me", "Broken Tooth", "Dumb Angel/Stuka", "Wedding Dress", "Deppers Bridge" and more, plus the bonus tracks "Back To The Coast", "Breaking Lines", "The Last Bandit" and more. "Dead Men Tell No Tales" includes "When I Cross The Line", "Dog Latin", "Cupful Of Change", "(Girl With The) Wooden Leg" and "Kiss At Dawn" and more, plus bonus tracks "Flowerbed Romance", "When She Smiles", "The Ragged School" and more. The 2CDs include the 2 complete original albums, plus 11 bonus tracks in all! CD

Nikki Sudden & The JacobitesTexas ... LP
Creation/Numero, 1986. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 22.98
The stunning Creation Records debut of Nikki Sudden – a record that has the solo Sudden sounding even tighter and more classic than ever – yet without any sort of commercial leanings at all! The songs here flow effortlessly from Nikki's hands – instant classics that were completely unappreciated at the time, given how un-80s Sudden's style is overall – work that would nestle down nicely next to classics from the Rolling Stones' generation, but which also has a more stripped-down, less-posturing feel – one that comes from Nikki's roots in punk with the Swell Maps. Titles include "Jangle Town", "Death Is Hanging Over Me", "Such A Little Girl", "Dumb Angel", "Wedding Dress", and "When I Left You". LP, Vinyl record album

New Nikki Sudden & Roland S HowardKiss You Kidnapped Charabanc ... LP
Creation/Numero, 1987. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Some of the moodiest music that Nikki Sudden recorded in the 80s – and that's saying a lot, given his other albums! The record's a duet with Roland S Howard – of Birthday Party and Lydia Lunch collaborative fame – and Howard has Nikki really moving into noisier territory – both with the guitar parts used on the tunes, and in the overall presentation of the lyrics and ideas of the tunes! There's no other band on the set, which gives the music a looser, less-structured feel than some of Sudden's other records – really letting the vocal and instrumental concepts ruminate in a space that's all their own – with completely sublime results. Titles include "Feather Beds", "A Quick Thing", "Crossroads", "Don't Explain", "Better Blood", and "Rebel Grave". LP, Vinyl record album

Andrew Soul/Steven Tang/Prof DelacroixOsunlade Atonement Sampler – Disconnected Thoughts/Sunspot/Build Her ... LP
R2 (UK), 2014. New Copy ... $12.99
Some of the warmest grooves we've heard so far from Osunlade – a beautiful selection of tracks that work perfectly together – almost as if the artist himself had a hand in their creation! The tracks follow strongly in the vein of organic house that Osunlade's always brought us – but they also seem to have a special sort of glow here – one that's more subtle, but still rhythmically bold – never too over the top in the way the instrumentation glides along, with especially great work on keyboards. Most tracks are instrumental – and this EP features three tracks from the full CD – "Disconnected Thoughts" by Andrew Soul, "Sunspot" by Steven Tang, and "Build Her" by Professor Delacroix.

Bevis FrondMiasma (180 gram pressing with bonus tracks) ... LP
Woronzow/Cherry Red (UK), 1986. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $32.99
A psychedelic relic from a time where there was almost no psychedelia at all – at least not at a level this trippy! While the American scene was jangling about in the paisley revival, Bevis Frond was working secretly in the back bedroom of his British home – crafting this, one of his first true psych masterpieces – done at a level that may well go beyond the 60s giants that inspired him! The production is definitely more 80s than 60s – almost in a Creation Records space, but rawer overall – and with some headier solos and plenty of fuzz. Titles include "The Earl Of Walthamstowe", "The Newgate Wind", "Wild Mind", "Garden Gate", "Wild Afterthought", and "Splendid Isolation". 2LP version features bonus tracks – the extended "Death Trip", plus "Song From Room 13", "Time She Loves", "I Eat The Air", and "Big Hole".

Cleftones, Crows, Harptones, & ValentinesTeenage Party ... CD
Gee/Warner (Japan), 1958. New Copy ... $13.99
A wonderful collection of late 50s vocal group material – all of it originally recorded for the excellent Gee label, one of the best NY indies of the time! The tracks here are as tight as anything in the pop realm at the time, but still really retain all the rougher, more personal vibe of the streetcorner years – a quality that's furthered by the relatively sparse instrumentation on most numbers – usually just a small rhythm combo to back up the soaring vocals! There's a few big hits here, mixed with more obscure numbers – and despite the teen cover, the album's got a rock-solid, all-soul vibe throughout. Titles include "Come Back My Love" by The Wrens, "Little Girl Of Mine" and "Can't We Be Sweethearts" by The Cleftones, "Nature's Creation" by The Valentines, "Three Wishes" and "My Memories Of You" by The Harptones, and "Gee" and "I Love You So" by The Crows.

Delta Acoustic/Wah Wah (Spain), 1974. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $32.99
One of the darkest concept albums we've ever heard – a set dedicated to creation and the "planet of man" – but really just an amazing experiment in sound! Manfred Schunke put the record together to explore his "artificial head" recording system – and it's got this incredible stereo interplay throughout – sometimes weird sounds leaping back and forth from speaker to speaker, sometimes these loud industrial noises looming from each – and creating this richly organic feeling of sound and soil! There's vocals on the set – some sung, some spoken – but most of the music is heavy on echo, noise, textures, and tones – at a sonic level that's more striking than most experiments to follow!

Charles CohenMusic For Dance & Theater ... LP
Morphine (Netherlands), 1970s/1980s. New Copy 2 LPs ... $24.99
Hardly the regular sort of music you'd expect for dance or theater – as all the tracks here are the creation of Charles Cohen – an overlooked American electronic pioneer, and one with a great ear for unusual sounds and styles! The music is almost all performed on analogue synthesizers – and often balances perfectly between cosmic soundscapes and more creative passages – some of which really show Cohen's strong talent for creating unusual sounds. Yet unlike other musicians of this nature, Charles is never out to shock or overwhelm – and instead has this minimal, organic sense to his music – which often makes you feel like there's a lot more "heart" inside than usual. Titles include "The Street", "Velcro Dance", "Water", "Bell Jar", "Blue Krishna", "Tubs", and "Sunrise Women/Men". LP, Vinyl record album

Phil Cohran & The Artistic Heritage EnsembleArmageddon (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Katalyst, 1968. New Copy Gatefold ... $9.99 11.99
A rare and beautiful treasure from Chicago's Phil Cohran and his legendary Artistic Heritage Ensemble – material recorded at the end of the 60s, but only issued here for the first time ever! The sound on the record is amazing – much deeper, and more forceful than anything else we've ever heard from Cohran – almost in Sun Ra Arkestra territory at times, given the group's out-there playing, and bold collective action! The lineup is similar to other Cohran recordings from the time – Phil on cornet, Henry Gibson on congas, Pete Cosey on guitar, Louis Satterfield on bass, Charles Williams on alto, Don Myrick on tenor, Charles Handy on trumpet, Willie Woods on trombone, and Aaron Dodd on tuba – a group that's a wonderful bridge between the two important Chicago generations headed by Sun Ra and Earth Wind & Fire. Armageddon is an extended piece, divided up into five different musical acts – conceived by Cohran in the late 50s, and recorded here in 1968 – with some great help from The Spencer Jackson Family on the leadoff track "Motherless Child". Other titles include "Creation Of The Beast", "The Warning", "The Window", and "Armageddon" – a clear reference to the power of the atom bomb! CD

New Crazy World Of Arthur BrownCrazy World Of Arthur Brown ... LP
Track, 1968. Very Good- ... $9.99
A wild, far reaching psychedelic rock kaleidoscope from Arthur Brown and his Crazy World! The sounds range from wailing organs and heavy drum backed bigness, to more of a tightly grooving r&b garage influenced trip as the core backdrop – with vocals ranging from falsetto freakouts to rambling speak singing craziness and bursts of brass. Nothing's predictable from one passage to the next, but the group sets a heady groove before it all gets freaky, and they find it again before insanity sets in. Titles include "Prelude-Nightmare", "Fire", "Come & Buy", "Spontaneous Apple Creation", "Child Of My Kingdom", "I Put A Spell On You" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

New Peter DoggettMan Who Sold The World – David Bowie & The 1970s (hardcover) ... Book
HarperCollins, 2012. New Copy ... $4.99 26.99
A deep look at the most important musical decade for David Bowie – a time of great change, major stardom, and constant reinvention – laid out in a very unique way! Instead of focusing on the star image and celebrity of Bowie, Peter Doggett goes straight to the work – and lays out Bowie's 70s on a song-by-song, album-by-album basis – not with simple reviews or rehashes of things you can hear on record, but instead by offering up insights as to the composition, creation, and circulation of the music as it was made. The book dissects over 250 songs, and has essays and other historical detail interspersed throughout – and the heavy volume is almost 500 pages in length, with no photos – which gives you an idea of the depths to which it goes!

The package features 4CDs, 107 tracks of music – 2CDs that include every single album, 45, and unreleased masters that Lee Hazlewood recorded for his own LHI imprint (including the full albums Cowboy In Sweden, Cowboy & The Lady, and Requiem For An Almost Lady) – 2 more CDs that feature all the key tracks from LHI artists like International Submarine Band, Sanford Clark, Honey LTD, Lynn Castle, Hamilton Streetcar, and many others – including 14 unreleased tracks.

T Neck, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A stone classic from the Isleys – the album that kicked off their successful T-Neck label, and established that mighty Isleys sound that would have such a huge influence in the 70s! The title cut of the set – "It's Your Thing" – is a well-known classic that really sets the tone for the rest of the record – mixing guitar and chunky rhythms into a righteous funky style of soul that was miles away from the Brothers' earlier work on Motown and RCA. And believe it or not, the rest of the record's even better than the title cut – filled with sinister, sexy numbers that bristle with energy that's still heard best here at the point of its creation! Other gems include "Give the Women What They Want", "He's Got Your Love", "I Know Who You Been Socking It To", "Don't Give It Away", "He's Got Your Love", "Save Me", "Feel Like The World", and "Somebody Been Messin".

Killer Latin soul! This record is one of the hardest to find from the late 60's boogaloo era, and it's a massive stormer filled with tasty grooves! The band is small and tight, with a 2-sax frontline, for an extra-soulful sound. Vocals are in English and Spanish, and the album wails away like a siren out of control. Things kick off with the organ-heavy instrumental, "Camel Walk" – then they leap into one of the catchiest vocal numbers ever from Fania, the tasty "Afro-Shingaling" – which starts with Ray Ramirez shouting "I just come from Africa – and I learned to do the Shing-a-ling!" Other nice ones include "Chevere", "Guajira", and "Creation" – but the whole thing's great! LP, Vinyl record album

Sidney's joined by Doris Belack, who provides a female voice on a few numbers – and the overall style of the album is quite dark, almost somber – with lots of echo on the vocals, and added percussion, harp, piano, and other incidental sound bits. Titles include "When Malinda Sings", "Mother To Son", "The Debt", "At Candle Lightin Time", "The Creation", "Yet I Do Marvel", "Debate Of Dark Brothers", "Epigram", "We Wear The Mask", and "When You Have Forgotten Sunday".

Pure genius from Bud Powell's mid 50s run for Verve Records – some of his sharpest-edged recordings of the decade! Despite the "blue" feeling of the title, there's a very lively sound going on here – one that's often crackling with strong rhythmic impulses, and which displays a never-tiring sense of invention and creation. The material is culled from two different sessions – one with George Duvivier on bass and Art Taylor on drums, the other with Percy Heath on bass and Kenny Clarke on drums – both teams that do a good job of keeping up with Powell's imagination and inspiration. Titles include the classic "Dance Of The Infidels", plus "Lullaby In Rhythm", "Mediocre", "All The Things You Are", "Hey George", and "Star Eyes". CD

A great soundtrack moment for Tangerine Dream – and one of their darkest, too! Bill Friedkin's films are always pretty darn spooky – but the music of the group definitely adds a lot here – bringing in these coldly hypnotic passages that really work wonders with the images on the screen – and, in a way, also help Tangerine Dream compress their often longform electronic musings into more of an "essence" by focusing on scene-based compositions! And even without the film, the album still really stands strongly on its own – a great maturation moment for Tangerine Dream, but one that still has all the edge and darkness of their best early recordings too. Titles include "Rain Forest", "The Call", "Creation", "Vengeance", "Search", and "Grind". LP, Vinyl record album

Nearly every track on the set features a vocalist, and the album slides together nicely with a seamless flow that shows the duo stepping up their talents in the studio nicely. Titles include "Heaven's Gonna Burn Your Eyes", "The Richest Man In Babylon", "The State Of The Union", "Resolution", "Until The Morning", "From Creation", "Liberation Front", and "Meu Destino".

Peter ToshBush Doctor (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Rolling Stones/EMI, 1978. Used ... $5.99
During the mid 70s, a number of major label rock stars had their dalliance with reggae, and after inviting him to tour with them, the Stones decided to start releasing Peter Tosh's LPs. This record was the first of Tosh's released by Keith Richards and Mick Jagger on their Rolling Stones label and they guest on a couple of tracks. Despite their presence, the album is a fairly solid roots effort, if a bit uneven, though not quite as radical or grooving as Equal Rights or Legalize It. Tracks include "Pick Myself Up", "Soon Come", "Moses- The Prophets", "Stand Firm", "Dem Ha Fe Get A Beaten", and "Creation". CD features 6 bonus tracks too! CD

VariousAtonement – Compiled & Mixed By Osunlade ... CD
R2 (UK), 2014. New Copy Gatefold ... $17.99
Some of the warmest grooves we've heard so far from Osunlade – a beautiful selection of tracks that work perfectly together – almost as if the artist himself had a hand in their creation! The tracks follow strongly in the vein of organic house that Osunlade's always brought us – but they also seem to have a special sort of glow here – one that's more subtle, but still rhythmically bold – never too over the top in the way the instrumentation glides along, with especially great work on keyboards. Most tracks are instrumental – and titles include "Disconnected Thoughts" by Andrew Soul, "Sunspot" by Steven Tang, "Build Her" by Professor Delacroix, "Late Night Thinking" by Estroe, "Palm Leaves (Mr Fingers Afropshycojungledub inst)" by Gerd, "Atlanta" by Ananada Project, "Believe In Reflecting" by Roaming, and "Phantom" by Tomas Svensson.

VariousFallin Off The Reel Vol 1 – Truth & Soul Singles Collection ... CD
Truth & Soul, 1970s/2000s. New Copy ... $11.99
A treasure trove of great funky bits from the last few years – 19 tracks from the Soul Fire/Truth & Soul Catalog – none of which have ever been on CD before! The work here is all great – very much in the best mode of the deep funk underground, but also showing the unusual sounds and styles the T&S crew have come up with on recent records – modes that are far more than retro funk, and which have really set them apart from the Desco and Daptone scene before them! Added to the newer cuts are also some great rare numbers too – dark little gems reissued by Truth & Soul that sit nicely alongside the current tracks. Given that any one of the singles would cost you about half the price of the CD, you're getting a tremendous funky bargain here – nearly an hour of great music that includes "Honey Dove" and "Do You Love Me" by Lee Fields & The Expressions, "Feeling Good" by Bama & The Family, "Easy Easy Easy" and "KC Stomp" by Timothy McNealy, "CREAM" and "Glaciers Of Ice" by El Michels Affair, "Gotta Clean Up The World (parts 1 & 2)" by Funky Music Machine, "So Glad" by The Evil D's, "These Moments" and "Money Is King" by The Expressions, "Creation" by El Michels Affair, "Lima Blues" and "Mas Y Mas" by Bronx River Parkway, and "Drums Of Asiko" by Asiko.

Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 3CD ... $28.99
The real sound of the British underground at the end of the 60s – a stellar 3CD package that goes way beyond the oft-heard modes from the classic rock and progressive years! Sure, all the big names from those years are totally great – but they've also obscured the really rich tapestry of lesser-knowns who were working in London and beyond at the time – extremely inventive groups who work here in a blistering array of fuzzy, freaky, and mad mod styles! The book's got plenty of details on the 65 tracks included in the box set – more than enough info to help situate these really unique sounds, and no doubt start you digging for more in the future. Yet there's hardly any need to dig when you've got a set this great – a package that includes "Pretty Colours" by Deep Feeling, "Ebeneezer Beaver" by The Mirage, "Amanda Jane" by West Coast Consortium, "Love" by Shy Limbs, "Santa Lucia" by Respect, "Iridescent Butterfly" by Fat Mattress, "Story Book" by Alan Bown, "Just Another Day" by Neon Pearl, "I'll Be Late For Tea" by Blossom Toes, "Am I Glad To See You" by The In Crowd, "Busy Bee" by Tintern Abbey, "Fillin A Gap" by Paper Bubble, "Creation" by Beau, and "Hurry On Sundown" by Hawkwind Zoo.

Jazzman blow the roof off the Carolina scene here – digging through a wealth of rare 70s funk to explode the myth that the states are only home to beach music and shag tunes! The grooves here are every bit as gritty as previous Jazzman outings to Texas, Florida, and the Midwest – and the package offers up a few classics, some unreleased numbers, and a bunch of tunes we've never heard before – all supported by the kind of in-depth notes that Jazzman does better than anyone else! And sure, we've been digging funky 45s for years – but its sets like this that almost get us more excited in the music than the originals – thanks to the overall conception and quality of the work. Titles include "Creation Of Music" by Primitive, "Darkness" by Gamith, "Just Take Your Time" by Innersouls, "Super Good" by Dynamite Singletary, "Funky Soul Brother" by The Soul Drifters, "The Road" by Communicators & Black Experience Band, "Theme Of Blackbyrds" by The Black Exotics, "Good Time" by George Campbell, "Funky Mind" by Donnie Brown, "Doing What You Need To Do" by Anthony Burns, "JD's Funky Party Time" by JD, "Bad Woman" by Frankie & The Damons, "Ease It To Me" by Shirlean Williams & The Tempo's Band, "Stand Up & Be A Man (part 1)" by Sundia, and "You Ain't Miss It" by Roy Roberts.

Incredible early theremin recordings! The record features spacey orchestral settings arranged by Warren Baker, and conducted by Andre Montero – plus fantastic work on the "electro theremin" by Paul Tanner. The "electro theremin" was Tanner's own creation, and it works on a cool sliding principle that creates a lot of weird spacey dipping, turning, and soaring effects. The album's packaged in a lovingly heavy cover, with a nude "heavenly body" floating in space amidst a sea of bright colors! Titles include "Misty Moon Blues", "Out Of This World", "Holiday On Saturn", "20th Century Venus", and "Up To Jupiter". A great reissue, and one we never ever see in the original!

As you'd guess from the title and cover, the emphasis here is on stories and bits involving Fat Albert – the Cosby creation that was then playing big time in cartoon format on Saturday morning TV! The routines are actually a heck of a lot better than the cartoon – and titles include "Fat Albert's Car", "Fat Albert Plays Dead", "Fat Albert Got A Hernia", "My Wife & Kids", "My Dad's Car", "My Brother, Russell", and "Fernet Branca".

An incredible set of low rolling, hypnotic dub genius from true reggae Revolutionaries – a batch of amazing tunes centered around the amazing drums of Sly Dunbar – cut in the mid-to-late 70s height of the Channel One groove! This might be the strongest collection of dubs that Pressure Sounds has ever compiled – benchmark work all the way – from the chugging, echoey guitar groove, to the heavy bass lines, to the sublime vocals. Amazing stuff mined from singles on the Channel One, Well Charge and Disco Mix labels. The set starts out with the incredible "Kunta Kinte Version One" – one of the most legendary dub plates ever, and other titles include "Hotter Fire Version", "Rootes Dub", "Pride & Ambition Version", "Dunkirk", "War Version", "Jah Creation Version", "Rude On Marchus Version", "Swell Headed", "Catonine Version", "Tivoli Skank", "Plantation Heights Version" and more.

New VariousDIY – The Rise Of The Independent Music Industry After Punk ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A brilliant overview of the depth and breadth of indie music in the UK during the late 70s and early 80s – most of it from labels so tiny, they make Rough Trade, Factory, and Creation look like the majors! A few of the artists here went onto become well-known, but the rest all remained quite obscure – and all of them are represented by initial singles issued on tiny imprints – most of them the kind of small-press 7" singles that were suddenly in heavy circulation in the punk and post-punk years. The styles here are a blend of experimental funk, industrial, and post-punk modes – similar to that served up on other Soul Jazz compilations of this period, but with a special focus on the DIY nature of the tiny labels. And that aspect is further enforced in the great notes – which not only offer up tune by tune tales of the releases on the set, but also tell the bigger picture of record labels and distribution during these years! Yet even without that special focus, the music here is more than great enough – and the set's a much needed revival of tracks that include "Shake The Foundations" by Glaxo Babies, "The Fish Needs A Bike" by Blurt, "Everything's Roses" by Fire Engines, "Slice 1" by The Naffs, "Ain't You" by Kleenex, "All Your Life With Me" by APB, "Looking From The Cooking Pot" by Russ McDonald, "Let's Build A Car" by Swell Maps, "You Can Choke Like That" by Biting Tongues, "Every Day I Die" by Frantic Elevators, "Fight For Peace" by Icon AD, "Tight As A Drum" by Thomas Leer, "The Slide" by Artery, "Spirit Of Youth" by The Last Gang, and "Distant Dreams (part 2)" by Throbbing Gristle.

Similar to the early Pay It All Back series, this one's pretty varied – with a couple of cuts of the sort of dubby post punk funk which has come back around – think 9 O'clock Drop compilaton by Andy Weatherall, or the In the Beginning compilation on Soul Jazz – "The Dice" by Judy Nylon, "Dreams Are Better" by London Underground and "Demonic Forces" by Alan Pellay. It also features some spacey On-U ethno dub in the more African Head Charge vein – including "Asian Rebel" by the Suns of Arqa and "Afghani Dub" by the Mothmen. There's also some roots oriented tracks, "Woodpecker Sound" by Jah Woosh and "Quante' Jubila" by Prince Far I & Creation Rebel. A nice slice of leftfield London underground history! CD

Some of the greatest work you could ever find by Lenny Bruce! This set is a brilliant re-creation of a live show that Lenny cut at midnight at Carnegie Hall on February 4, 1961. Unlike some of his LPs from the time - which often featured a lot of set routines – this one just has Lenny improvising freely, telling jokes, doing schtick, and bad-rapping on a variety of topics from pills, to homosexuality, to airlines, to the KKK, to VD, to other contemporary comedians. The album's one of the few to really capture Bruce's brilliance as a performer and a thinker – and the spontaneity of the very long recording is astounding. LP, Vinyl record album

The first record from Cheeba in many years – and definitely his funkiest so far!

Years back, we'd always like Cheeba's records, but sometimes found them rough around the edges – yet this time around, he's totally got it right – perfect production, just the right amount of space in between the grooves, and key help from some younger session players who really make the whole thing come out right – like a recreation of some hip 70s studio band. Titles include "Paisley Garden", "Looing For My Brother", "Message Force Multipliers", "Extend The Knowledge", "The Denunciation", "Return From Exile", and "2nd & Cedar". CD

A pair of wonderful albums from British folkie Mike Cooper – both recorded for the Dawn Records label, in a really genre-breaking style! Places I Know blends Cooper's acoustic guitar and rootsy vocals with some very compelling arrangements from Mike Gibbs – the British jazz talent who was already known for his larger ensemble creations at the time, but who works here in these really subtle ways – to inflect Cooper's core inspirations with just some slight instrumental colors, tones, and phrases on most numbers – while Cooper brings in the core Machine Gun Co group on a few more. The result is a record that's way more than familiar folk – and arguably a lot hipper than most of the British acid folk of the time, too – on titles that include "Night Journey", "Paper & Smoke", "Country Water", "Time To Time", "Goodbye Blues Goodbye", and "Places I Know". The Machine Gun Co album is a partner record to Places I Know – recorded in the same sessions, but with tracks that are longer, and even more openly expressive – all with backings from the sweet Machine Gun Co quartet, a group with some especially nice electric piano from Alan Cook! Heavy use of that instrument really works against some of the folksier elements in Cooper's music – with these blocks of warm sound and color that really illuminate the tunes, and almost unlock a new level in the vocals. Cooper plays a bit of electric guitar at times – and titles include "So Glad That I Found You", "Lady Anne", "Midnight Words", and "Song For Abigail". CD

Universal (France), Late 50s/1960s/1970s/1980s/1990s. New Copy 29CDs & Book ... $169.99
A treasure trove of studio and live recordings by one of our favorite singers ever – the incredible Claude Nougaro, a French vocalist of the postwar years, and a master of many styles that included jazz, samba, and bossa nova! Nougaro had a unique talent for penning French lyrics to American and Brazilian tunes – and during the 60s, he rose to fame through his inventive compositions, unique vocalizations, and keen ear for a jazzy groove. His work of the 70s progressed with an even deeper exploration of modern jazz and Brazilian idioms – and as the 80s approached, he stretched out into even more complicated styles of his own. Nougaro's growth over the years is tremendous – and his work comes across with a sound that is really unique, and which stands as some of the greatest mainstream French work of his era – on a par with that of Serge Gainsbourg and Brigitte Fontaine! This 29 CD package goes farther than any previous collection of work from Nougaro – and offers the CD debut of the albums Nougaro 79 and Au New Morning, and a reworking of Une Voice Dix Doigts – plus a range of great records for various labels – including early 10" records, seminal full albums, and later great sides – as well as some bonus tracks too. Includes the albums Bidonville, Petit Taureau, Soeur Ame, Locomotiv D'Or, Recreation, Mon Assassin, Plume D'Ange, Femmes Et Famines, Chansongs, L'Enfant Phare, Assez, Tu Verras, Chansons Nettes, Ami Chemin, Bleu Blanc Blues, Le Cinema, Il Y Avait Une Ville, Olympia 1969, Olympia 1977, Olympia 1985, Best De Scene, and Hombre Et Lumiere.

Caprice (Sweden), 2014. New Copy ... $16.99 18.99
Really really great work from pianist Mats Oberg – a musician we've always loved, but who really blows us away with this solo set of improvisations! Mats has this free-flowing sense of imagination that really loves us breathless – a way of creating on the keys of the piano that almost rivals Keith Jarrett at his 70s best, but which also has a more soulful focus and sense of direction too – so that each of the creations feel like preconceived songs more than spontaneous moments of music. The package has images of Mats posed before vintage albums by Berndt Egerbladh and a life-sized image of Stevie Wonder – and we might well say that the music has a soulful core that lies somewhere between the spirit of these two great musicians of the 70s. Titles include "Song For Amy", "Charlie Boy & Verkstadsbossa", "Sarek", "You Shall Find Your Way", "Ossians Vast", and "November Min Van". CD

JD Allen just gets more and more deft with each new release – able to craft these sharp, angular lines on tenor sax that seem to spill effortlessly out of his horn – yet all with this wonderfully spontaneous quality too! Allen's lead is a great match for the album's piano work from Orrin Evans – which is blocky and bold, but in a way that's very different than JD's horn – both players rising together with a sense of pride and majesty, creating rich textures throughout! The quartet also features bassist Alexander Claffy and drummer Jonathan Barber – the latter of whom has this crashing energy that really drives things forward – almost this sense of surprise and excitement at the creations of Evans and Allen, which then explodes to set new fire to their leads. Titles include "The Rule Of Thirds", "The Dreamer", "The Secret Lives Of Guest Workers", "Jack's Glass", and "Bloom". CD

New Willie DixonI Am The Blues ... LP
Columbia, 1970. Used ... Out Of Stock
A long-overdue recognition of the blues contributions of Willie Dixon – a set that pulls him out of the indie ghetto and pushes him firmly into the mainstream with this key release on Columbia Records! Yet despite that placement, the style is nicely down home – a strong recreation of older Chicago blues modes by producer Abner Spector – one that has Willie singing versions of his classic tunes like "Back Door Man", "The Seventh Son", "Little Red Rooster", "I'm Your Hoochie Coochie Man", and "The Same Thing". LP, Vinyl record album
(70s pressing. Cover has a fairly large peeled spot near the spine.)

New Jose Ferez Kuri, edBrion Gysin – Tuning In To The Multimedia Age ... Book
Thames & Hudson (UK), 2003. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful collection of work from Brion Gysin – an artist best known for his famous collaborations with William S Burroughs, but a heck of a great creative talent in his own right too! The book features almost 200 illustrations in color – a range of great images that not only includes some of Gysin's famous paintings and collages, but also material that's almost more scientific – his concept-based creations designed to open new levels of consciousness! Alongside these images, the book also features essays by key contemporaries and critics – including William S Burroughs, Gregory Corso, John Giorno, Barry Miles, Guy Brett, Mohamed Choukri, Gladys C Fabre, and John Grisgsby Geiger. Book is 240 pages, full color, softcover, and oversized. Book

New VariousFunk From The Vaults Of The Zodiac/Fungus Associated Labels ... CD
Essential, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Rare funk from two great indie labels of the 70s – the Fungus imprint, which handled a fair bit of Swamp Dogg side projects – and the excellent Zodiac, which was home to some of the deepest artists on the Chicago scene at the start of the 70s! Both labels had a great ear for the harder, grittier side of the spectrum – which you'll hear here right away – and they also selected excellent singers who could really belt home a lyric over a funky rhythm! If you're looking for deep funk that goes past the usual Stax or Atlantic material, this is a great place to dig – and titles include "Come On Back" by Brothers Of Soul, "That's How It Is" by Woman, "Wonderful Night" by Candace Love, "Fever Fever Fever" by Bobby Eaton, "I Know You Love Me" by Sisters Of Love, "Smell The Funk" by The Inner Drive, "If" by Lovehorn, "Love Can Slip Away" by Chuck Bernard, "Let's Get A Groove Going On (part 2)" by Ruby Andrews, "Foot Steps" by The Creations, and "Let's Do It Again (parts 3 & 4)" by Charlie Whitehead.

New VariousCompost One Hundred ... LP
Compost (Germany), 2001. Used 4LP ... Out Of Stock
A brilliant celebration of the genius of the Compost record label – an imprint that Gilles Peterson calls "the most consistent and forward thinking record label" in Europe! We feel the same way, and this oversize set is the best way you'll ever find to dip into the label's richly creative sound. Issued as the label's 100th release, the set features all-exclusive tracks, making the album one of the richest they've ever released! The material includes a great array of tracks that demonstrate Compost's ability to take a classic jazz and funk sensibility, and completely rework it for use in a modern DJ idiom – and the artists involved in the project are some of the cream of the underground at the moment, and some of the freshest talents of the past decade! Vinyl is 4 heavy LPs, in a great package, with less tracks than the CD. Titles include "Discipline 100" by Karl Berger vs Les Gammas, "Moments" by Ben Mono, "Crossbreed" by Kyoto Jazz Massive, "Galacia (zero dB rmx)" by Truby Trio, "Don't Know 2001" by Fauna Flash vs Wei Chi, "Little Princess" by Forest Mighty Black, "Shadow In The City" by DJ Force, "Guilty As Charged" by Amalgamation of Soundz, "It's All Related To Life" by Procreation, and "D/A/D" by Syrup. LP, Vinyl record album

New VariousMood Mosaic Vol 11 – Feeling Funky! – The Cult Tracks Given Birth By The Superheroes Of The 70s ... CD
Partners In Crime (Italy), 1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
What a subtitle – "The Cult Tracks Given Birth By The Superheroes Of The 70s"! And if you're thinking that the tracks are by Wolverine, Firestorm, and other 70s comic book creations, that's not the case – as the superheroes here are funky ones! More specifically, the tracks are great little groovers from the funky 45 underground – the kind of groups that really bubbled under in the charts at the time, many of whom never cut a full LP, but who released some monstrously great singles that made more than a bit of impact at the time. The set's got 20 tracks in all – all hard and funky – with titles that include "Super Soul Brother" by Timmie Rodgers, "Stand Up (part 1)" by Maskman & The Agents, "Spanky's Day Off" by Swingin Soul Machine, "It's The Real Thing (part 1)" by Electric Express, "Get It" by Wilmer & The Dukes, "Feelin Funky" by Brother Soul, "Cramp Your Style" by All the People, "Can't Get Satisfied" by Brother Jack McDuff, "Dynomite" by Tony Camillo's Bazuka, and "Foxy Lady" by Don Thompson.
