Leonard RosenmanFantastic Voyage ... CD
La La Land, 1966. New Copy ... $19.99
One of the greatest soundtracks ever from Leonard Rosenman – and a key example of his strong talent for mixing acoustic instrumentation with very offbeat and eerie electronics! Rosenman had offered up this blend on other important science soundtracks of the 60s – but probably hit his apex with this gem – penned for mid 60s film about a bunch of scientists who shrink down, and take a trip inside the human body! The electronics are sublime – used in these stark, sharp ways that are very compelling, and downright evil in nature – providing a real contrast to some of the warmer woodwind touches in the orchestrations, even when they try to echo the electric energy. The whole thing's pretty darn great – a lot bleaker musically than the actual film – and titles include "Proteus Moving Through Sac", "Group Leaves", "The Proteus", "The Chart", "Pulmonary Artery", "Get The Laser", and "The Human Brain".

New LakesideFantastic Voyage ... CD
Solar/Right Stuff, 1980. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A crowning achievement from Lakeside – one of the key albums to link Ohio funk roots with a smoother LA groove – all served up in a way that had limitless influence for years to come! Bass is definitely at the head of these arrangements, but there's plenty of great guitar too – riffing and scratching in a way that percolates the tunes wonderfully – keeping plenty of funk in the mix without falling into the too-uptight traps that sometimes mired other groups. But almost even better are the vocals – which are tight and well-placed – never an afterthought, but always a key part of the groove, thanks to plenty of great hooks that really send the tunes home! Titles include "Eveready Man", "Say Yes", "Strung Out", "Fantastic Voyage", "I Need You", and "Your Love Is On The One". CD

Milt Matthews IncFor The People ... CD
Catalyst/Fantastic Voyage (UK), 1971. New Copy ... $6.99 13.98
A weird little soul album from singer Milt Matthews – one that mixes up a range of late 60s influences, including Hendrix guitar licks, southern soul vocals, and kind of a rootsy crossover feel that's almost equal parts rock and soul! There's a lot of wah wah and organ in the mix – and the lyrics are pretty righteous on most songs – almost in the sort of territory that other artists were using to cross over much bigger in the US market – a space that's somewhere between Otis Redding and Joe Cocker, but nicely rough around the edges too. Titles include "Runaway People", "Disaster Area", "That's What I Feel", and a version of "Hard Day's Night". CD

Mickey StevensonHere I Am (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Ember/Fantastic Voyage (UK), 1972. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A killer solo debut from Mickey Stevenson – an artist who's probably best known for his Motown production work of the 60s, but a surprisingly great singer – as you'll hear on this rare early 70s set! The album's got a wonderful depth – a real mix of modes that has Mickey tackling deep soul, psychedelic soul, and some especially great adult material – really mature numbers that provide a perfect showcase for Stevenson's vocal range. Luchi DeJesus arranged the album with Mickey, and it's got a sophisticated vibe that reminds us of 70s work by Lamont Dozier or Leon Ware – no surprise in the case of the latter, as the album features four great songs penned by Ware! Titles include "Lonnie's Face", "Gonna Be Alright", "What Could Be Better", "Stormy", "Salliey", "Here I Am", "Joe Poor", "Trouble's A Loser", and "Knock On Any Door". CD also features 2 bonus tracks – "I Need You So" and "I'm On My Way Back To You". CD

Carol WoodsOut Of The Woods (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Ember/Fantastic Voyage (UK), 1971. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A rare 70s soul set from Carol Woods – a singer who's done a fair bit of work on the musical stage, but who has plenty to offer in this obscure debut album! The record was mostly cut in New York, yet only issued in the UK – which is part of the reason for its obscurity – and the sound is full, proud, and plenty darn soulful – almost a post-Supremes sort of vibe, but with a hipper 70s approach – very well put together by producer Beau Ray Fleming, who's probably better known for his later work with Mandrill and Sun. Woods' vocals are full and rich, but never overdone – and she reminds us a lot of some of her other 70s contemporaries who'd worked the stage, but could slide into a soul session equally well – such as Melba Moore. Titles include "If I Let You", "But You Know I Love You", "Bigger Than I", "There's Gotta Be A Way", "The Woods Are Full", "Can You Remember", and "Why You Wanna". Bonus tracks include "We'll Sing In The Sunshine" and "I Wonder What Will Happen". CD

New LakesideYour Love Is On The One/I Love Everything You Do ... 12-inch
Solar, 1980. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two numbers off Lakeside's Fantastic Voyage. The a-side's a popping 80s groove number capturing the bottom heavy funk of the group at it's best, with loads of squelchy keys and great ensemble vocals, while they smooth things out a bit for the mellow ballad on the flip. 12-inch, Vinyl record

New Shaolin AfronautsQuest Under Capricorn ... CD
Freestyle (UK), 2012. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A deeper, spacier set from Shaolin Afronauts – and one that goes a bit further into the cosmos, as you might guess from the title and cover art – though it's still firmly rooted in timeless Afro Soul and Funk! Once again, the greatest West African soul, jazz and funk of the 70s provides the most vital inspiration for the group – but the Afronauts go further with the freewheeling jazzy atmosphere on this one – especially on the longer cuts. The majority of tracks run longer than 5 minutes, giving them plenty of evolutionary space to travel, over the funky bedrock that's paved underneath. The horns are fantastic – with nine credited players – along with stellar drums and percussion, guitar, bass, Hammond and Rhodes. Titles Includes "Brooklyn", "Gayanamede Prelude", "Winds Across Gayanamede", "Los Angeles", "Quest Under Capricorn", "End Of A Sun", "Voyage Prelude", "Voyage" "Amhara", "Forests Of Io" and "Saturn's Dance". 11 tracks on the CD.

New VariousBetween Or Beyond The Black Forest – Dancefloor Jazz Classics From the Legendary MPS Label ... CD
Crippled Dick/MPS (Germany), 1999. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Insanely wonderful! The German MPS label has always been one of our favorites – and we've stocked any compilations or individual artist titles we could get over the years – but this new comp blows away just about anything we've had before! The folks at Crippled Dick lovingly combed through the label's vast catalog of jazz, Latin, fusion, and Brazilian grooves – and they came up with a set that's got fantastic goodies from the label that have never been unearthed on other compilations before! Believe us, even if you have the Talking Jazz compilations, this one's got a huge amount of stuff you'll never have – and it's all great, and packaged beautifully with great notes, photos, and album cover reproductions. Titles include "Space Bugaloo" by Mike Nock, "That Ol Bus Smell" by Peter Herbholzheimer, "Woe's All Over Me" by Charly Antolini, "Funf Zu Vier" by Erwin Lehn, "Maiden Voyage" by Third Wave, "JBW" by Bora Rakovic, "Dur Dur Dur" by Barney Wilen, and lots more! And don't forget the beautiful companion book Jazzin The Black Forest – it's a treasure, and is listed elsewhere on our pages! CD
