Brigitte Fontaine13 Chansons Decadentes Et Fantasmagoniques (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Jacques Canetti/Because (France), 1966. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $24.99
The roots of Brigitte Fontaine – and a really wonderful record that we love every bit as her later work – but in a completely different way! The style here is more strikingly jazzy in the territory of early 60s Serge Gainsbourg or Jacques Brel – and the lyrics are mostly all by Brigitte, but with some key collaborators too – set to these sublime jazz backings by Jimmy Walter, who brings in loads of great instrumental touches to illuminate the words! The style is light years from more commercial French pop of the time – as are the lyrics – and Fontaine's got a richer, fuller style of singing that's quite different than her later breathy modes – but one that's equally great. Titles include "Le Mauvais Coton", "Devaste Moi", "Hallucinante Aventure", "C'Est Pas De Ma Faute", "Je Suis Decadente", and "Le Train". LP, Vinyl record album

New VariousMusic From Planet Earth – A Soundway Collection ... CD
Soundway, 2014. New Copy ... $7.99
Music from planet earth – but a special side of the planet that's under the sway of Soundway Records – who've been creating some really great music of their own in recent years! Soundway is a label we mostly know for reissues of older Afro Funk – but they've also moved into a mode that has them working with key contemporary artists as well – especially those who have a great ear for forging global elements with more modern production styles – to create the sort of rich sounds you'll hear on this bargain-priced set! The 13-track CD is a great way to sample some of the more adventurous Soundway titles of recent years – and titles include "Luxo" by Batida, "Let's Dance" by Ibibio Sound Machine", "Are You Coming With Us" by Pinch, "Floor Excitement VIP" by The Busy Twist, "Sefty Belt" by Fantasma, "Airbourne" by Drumtalk, "Guaracha UFO" by Meridian Brothers, "Yapeyu" by My Panda Shall Fly, "Gban Gban Lewa" by Weird Together, and "Same Old Clown" by Chico Mann.

Willie ColonFantasmas ... CD
Fania, 1981. New Copy ... Around August 10, 2014 (delayed)
A brilliant new move for Willie Colon – a set that goes even further than his mid 70s classics with Ruben Blades, and pushes Willie into a Pan-American consciousness carried off with ambitious musical vision! The sound is still salsa at the core, but Willie's also brought in bits of other South American influences – traces of styles from Columbia, Argentina, and most importantly Brazil – heard wonderfully on Willie's reading of Chico Buarque's excellent "Oh Que Sera"! The backings are full, and sometimes have large orchestrations – and the vocals are both proud yet somehow fragile at the same time. Titles include "Oh, Que Sera?", "Mi Sueno", "Celo", "Amor Verdadero", "Al Dormir", "Toma Mis Manos", and "Sueno De Papelote". CD

Ennio MorriconeGood, The Bad, And The Ugly – Original Soundtrack (2014 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Capitol, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... Around November 28, 2014
A great little version of The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly soundtrack – packaged under the Italian title, with a lot of bonus tracks that weren't on the original album! The set features 21 titles in all – which should be more than a bit of spaghetti for all of your western fantasies. Morricone's work, as always, is excellent – with lots of guitar twanging over the plains, and that cool little "whootle" sound that made the theme so famous! Titles include "Insequimento", "Il Deserto", "Il Bandito Monco", "Fine Di Una Spia", "Marcetta", "Padre Ramirez", and "La Carrozza Dei Fantasmi". (Note: This item is not for sale online until after the opening of business on Saturday, 11/29/14.

New Ivan LinsNovo Tempo ... CD
EMI/Odeon (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful album by Ivan Lins – truly one of his greatest records, and a real gem that stands out as one of the best in his already-excellent catalog! The set has Ivan stepping out strongly from his sound of the 70s – working with Gilson Peranzzetta in a set of arrangements that have touches of jazz and a deeply expressive soul that matches Lins' growing vocal confidence wonderfully. Lins' voice is in top form, and the material is extremely strong (in fact, most of the songs are so good, and so catchy, that we've hardly noticed that they weren't in English!) Titles include "Vira", "Arlequim Desconhecido", "Barco Fantasma", "Novo Tempo", and "Coracao Vagabundo". CD

New Stelvio CiprianiEnfantasme ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1978. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A cool late 70s soundtrack from Stelvio Cipriani – for the Italian & French co-production Enfantasme – a film we know little about, but with a nicely dramatic score that dabbles a bit on spacier 70s Euro sounds! There's a bit of electric piano and Moogy sounds, along with more timeless textures. The revolving melody is infectious and memorable, and it has some really delicate passages, too. Just a solid blend dramatic film sounds and late 70s modern flourishes. 13 variations on the title theme, plus the closing "Nino". CD

New Ennio MorriconeStark System ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1980. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Stark sounds from Ennio Morricone – a moody soundtrack from the start of the 80s, and a bit obscure in the Morricone canon – but also a real overlooked gem that's got a feel that's quite different from some of the maestro's bigger work of the time! There's a spare, stepping quality to some of the best tunes here – jagged rhythms that move with weird sonic touches, at a level that's like some of Morricone's coolest thrillers from the early 70s Italian scene – a really surprising return to a style we love so much, especially at a time when Ennio was using larger orchestrations for so many other films. There's a bracing feel to the music that holds on throughout – and titles include "Stark System", "Fantasmi Grotteschi", "Umor Giallo", and other variations. CD also features 8 more bonus tracks as well! CD
