New Felix LabandDark Days Exit ... LP
Compost (Germany), 2005. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Spare little instrumental grooves, with a feel that's as dark as the cover image! Felix Laband's a good fit for the sound of Compost these days – and he's working here in a style that electrifies acoustic elements, and jiggles them together playfully with an earthy tone at the bottom. There's not as many standout tracks here as we might like, but the record's got a nice atmosphere overall – and holds together well through the clicks, pops, and rhythms of the instruments' reconfiguration. Titles include "Crooked Breath", "Dirty Nightgown", "Miss Teardrop", "Sleeping Household", "Radio Right Now", and "Black Shoes". LP, Vinyl record album

New Felix KubinZemsta Plutona ... CD
Omni (Australia), 2013. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Felix Kubin looks a lot like an alien on the cover of this set – and sounds a fair bit like a space visitor in the music as well! The work's got this very cool blend of electronics and playful rhythms – served up in a style that really takes us back to some of our favorite German work of the post-punk years – particularly the music of Der Plan and Pyrolator, both of whom would be a great comparison to Kubin's work! The tunes are catchy and playful, but also have this undercurrent of darkness too – and loads of analogue elements that bristle and crackle in this very cool way – like you've tapped into some spaceship out in the ether, and are able to unload all the grooves going on in their soundsystem. Titles include "Restez En Ligne", "Zemsta Plutona", "Swinging 40s", "Lightning Strikes", "Atomium Vertigo", and "Nachts Im Park". CD

Gary BartzSingerella – A Ghetto Fairy Tale ... CD
Prestige/BGP (UK), 1974. New Copy ... $11.99
One of the last Gary Bartz albums for Prestige – and a really unique session with a different feel than some of his earlier work! Gary's still got plenty of angular funk in his sound here – thanks to some edgey keyboards from Hubert Eaves – but he's also tightened things up a bit without smoothing them out – cutting down on the longer jams in favor of a more focused approach, and singing himself on many cuts, taking on the quirky lyrical role that used to be held by Andy Bey! Bartz also produced the record himself, but Larry Mizell handled the final mix – giving the record a slightly spacier Mizell-inflected groove, but one that's not as full as on other Bartz/Mizell collaborations. The vocals here are all pretty great, and the album's filled with oddly-grooving tunes that really have a heck of a lot of charm – including the call-response track "Dozens", plus "I Don't Care", "Lady Love", "St Felix Street", "Nation Time", and "Blind Man".

New MountainNantucket Sleighride ... LP
Windfall, 1971. Very Good Gatefold ... $5.99
Solid jamming from Mountain – one of the tightest guitar-based groups of their day, and hard rockers that could serve up a nice dose of soul! Tunes have a great mix of tight rhythms and fierce guitars – a bit dated at times, but with some nice production overall by Felix Pappalardi. Titles include "Don't Look Around", "Taunta", "Nantucket Sleighride", "Tired Angels", "The Great Train Robbery", and "The Animal Trainer & The Toad". LP, Vinyl record album

RascalsFreedom Suite ... LP
Atlantic, 1969. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $6.99
A double-length set from The Rascals – possibly their most stretched-out exploration of ideas, at least during their initial run for Atlantic Records! The 2LP set features a fair bit of shorter, catchier tunes on the first record – many with some righteous soul overtones – but on the second record, the group really open up – hitting some longer jamming tunes on side three, and moving into a 15 minute instrumental on side four! Vocals are great from all three singers – Gene Cornish, Eddie Brigati, and Felix Cavaliere – and the rhythms are rock-solid too, often augmented with a bit of Atlantic-styled backings by Arif Mardin, to further enforce the soulfulness of the set. Titles include the hit "People Got To Be Free", plus "American The Beautiful", "Any Dance'll Do", "A Ray Of Hope", "Look Around", "Boom", "Heaven", "Cute", "Baby I'm Blue", and "Adrian's Birthday". LP, Vinyl record album

RascalsSearch & Nearness ... LP
Atco, 1971. Very Good Gatefold ... $1.99
The Rascals' last album for Atlantic Records – and a set that has the combo relying more than ever on the talents of organist Felix Cavaliere! There's a great New York blend of rock and soul going on in the set – a confident, soaring sort of approach to the tunes that's past caring what any simple genre conventions might mean, or which tracks might end up on radio – even though most of the tunes here are still plenty darn catchy. The piano and organ lines on the album snap along nicely, as do some of the drums (especially on the break cut "You Don't Know") – and although group member Eddie Brigati had left by the time the album was released, he still sings lead on a few tracks. Titles include the jazzy "Nama", which is a wonderful surprise – plus "You Don't Know", "Right On", "Ready For Love", "Fortunes", "Glory Glory", and "The Letter". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the lyric sleeve. Cover has a cutout hole, ringwear, some staining, and a name in pen.)

Success-N-EffectFreeze (voc, inst)/Roll It Up (Remix – fat mix, radio, bass kickin' beats) ... 12-inch
On Top, 1989. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Since we couldn't put it any better, here's a quote from Frankie Knuckles off of discogs – "For the first 6 months of my arrival to the U.K. back in the later months of 1989, this was my most treasured track, the one people would remember me for. The vocal "Let The Bass Kick" followed by The Winstons "Amen Brother" breakbeat with a sub 808 that was deadly. Felix Samas edit work was effective on this chopping Big Daddy Kanes Vocal "Let It Roll" (made popular by Doug Lazy) into little bits before crashing into that 808/breakbeat again. Carl Cox would get his copy from Lenny Dee in Feb. 1990 and went and did a white label remix which would result in his ink with Perfecto Records for "I Want U (Forever). After that it became the template for the young U.K. youth who began to experiment in the studio. The end result being Jungle and Drum & Bass. This record was the prototype." 12-inch, Vinyl record

Chucho Zarzosa Y Su ConjuntoConcierto En Jazz (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
RCA/Jazzhus Disk (Japan), 1962. New Copy ... $24.99
A live set from this obscure Mexican jazz combo – recorded in the early 60s, in a mode that's kind of a small combo take on an Ellington sound, but with some freer twists too! The approach is nicely offbeat – starting out familiar at first, but then opening up with some offbeat elements that come partly from the group's phrasing, and partly from the way the whole thing's put together – all of which makes for a great little record that goes way past the usual! Pianist Chucho Zarzosa heads of the group – playing an odd-toned instrument with a lot of charm – and other players include Pepe Solis on trumpet, Rodolfo Sanchez on baritone and alto, Mario Ballina on bass, and Felix Agueros on drums – working together nicely on the album's four long tracks. Sanchez is especially nice – with an unusual tone that really comes through on the album's extended version of "Peter Gunn", which features him blowing oddly and in lots of curvy ways – and other tracks include "Perdido", "My Funny Valentine", and "Take the A Train".

VariousEl Barrio – Latin Funk – Ny Yorican Funk 1968 to 1976 ... CD
Fania, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 12.99
Heavy funk with a Latin groove – a wonderful mixing of modes that's completely fresh and unique! The set follows nicely off other El Barrio explorations of late 60s Latin Soul, and traces the groove that emerged in its wake – a blending of hipper funky styles in the 70s with some of the bolder, prouder Latin modes of the time! Unlike Latin Soul, which was concentrated enough to get strong attention at the time, Latin Funk was often a bit more dispersed – just a track here and there, scattered over albums by both older artists and lesser-known newcomers – some of whom gave more famous acts a real run for their money. This overstuffed collection does a great job of pulling together tracks from a variety of different albums over an 8 year span – and it's a perfect introduction to an under-compiled genre that's finally getting its due! Track selection and notes are by the mighty Adrian Gibson – and titles include "You Need Help" by Monguito Santamaria, "Identify Yourself" by Cafe, "Dynamite" by Harvey Averne, "I'm Satisfied" by Joe Bataan, "Together" by Ray Barretto, "Guajiro Bacan" by Azuquita, "Funky Felix" by Seguida, "I Got The Feeling" by Chollo Rivera & The Latin Soul Drives, "There You Go" by Fania All Stars, "I'm Gonna Get To You Yet" by TNT Boys, "Black Dice" by Mongo Santamaria, and "Hot Pants" by Gilberto Cruz.

VariousLe Beat Bespoke Vol 3 – Tailor Made Cuts Compiled By Rob Bailey ... CD
Circle (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $19.99
Mod mania all the way through and through – a sublime third set from the New Untouchables scene – every bit as wonderful as the first two! Like those great collections, this one's built up from rare mod singles of the 60s – obscure gritty grooves awash in fuzzy guitars, burning Hammond, and heavy drums – often in a space that's uniquely somewhere between rock, funk, and soul! A few of the names here are familiar, but as on previous volumes, most of the artists are completely new to our ears – which makes the "discovery" factor of the set every bit as great as the music. Most tunes are upbeat and romping – sure to please fans of funkier rock work – and titles include "Snakeskin" by Julie Felix, "Looking For Something Better" by Rodys, "Mirrors" by Fire & Ice, "Abba" by The Paragons, "Si Je Buvais Moins" by Douglas, "Midnight Moses" by Alex Harvey, "Strange Magic" by Claude Bolling, "Music Ship" by Bastile, "Hold Up Inusite" by Joanna, "A Minor Explosion" by Don Shinn & The Soul Agents, and "Flashback" by The Noon Express.

VariousMinimal Wave Tapes Vol 2 ... CD
Minimal Wave/Stones Throw, Early 80s. Used ... $8.99
Amazing electro from the early 80s – a host of rare and wonderful tracks that even surpasses the greatness of the first Minimal Wave Tapes compilation! The set's awash in great keyboards, spare drum parts, and brooding basslines – all with a spare, stark quality that recalls the best moments of the Sheffield and Manchester scenes – with a dose of Italian Cosmic and German new wave thrown in as well! Most of the tunes here are totally new to us – and that's saying a lot, because back in the day, we were heavily into sounds like this – which means our hat's off to compilers Peanut Butter Wolf and Veronica Vasicka for doing such a great job with the collection – unearthing this secret history of electronica that bubbled in the global underground of the post-punk, post-disco years. Tracks include "Fire" by Ruins, "Cinnamon Air" by Antonym, "HSTA" by Das Ding, "What Happened To You" by Subject, "The Drum" by Ohama, "The Sleep Room" by Geneva Jacuzzi, "Japan Japan" by Felix Kubin, "Out Of Line" by Class Info, and "Dirty" by Hard Corps.

New Rodney FranklinYou'll Never Know ... LP
Columbia, 1980. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
Fully-formed genius from the amazing Rodney Franklin – one of the best keyboard stars to emerge from the late 70s scene! Franklin's got a great talent for balancing influences from jazz and soul in ways that are similar to contemporaries George Duke and Bobby Lyle – and like both of those players, he still stands strong in jazz, but makes some key nods to soul music on this set – adding in a bit of vocals where needed, and moving into some R&B-drenched fusion lines that all sound pretty darn hip! As on previous records, Rodney plays both acoustic and electric keys – blending them wonderfully for a very deep sound – and the group behind him features some especially nice work on reeds, which bring sharper edges to some of the best tracks on the set. There's a wonderfully deep feel to the whole thing – way more than you'd expect for a major label release at the time – and titles include "Felix Leo", "The Watcher", "The Groove", "Journey", "You'll Never Know", "Return", and "Parkay Man".

MountainMountain Live ... LP
Windfall, 1972. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
Sure, Mountain's a rock group by most accounts – and that's where you'll find most of their records in the record store. But from our end, this album always shows up in the crates of hip DJs from way back – clearly for the massive breakbeat classic "Long Red", a monster little funky number with a hook you'll recognize instantly. And plus, the Leslie West/Felix Pappalardi team that drives the record has had more than a few forays into soul, so that's more than enough justification for us! LP, Vinyl record album

New Chris Potter, Steve Wilson, & OthersComing Together ... CD
Inarhyme, 2009. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A moody little set – one that features an array of great players in slightly shifting lineups, working through a good deal of original music by Brendan Romaneck, plus a handful of extra standards! There's kind of no core to the album in terms of the players, and that makes for a nicely unsettling feel – you almost don't know what to expect from track to track. Pianist Keith Javors is on the most tracks, but still isn't on the first one – and Chris Potter plays soprano and tenor sax on 6 numbers, while Steve Wilson plays alto and soprano on 5 other cuts. Terrell Stafford's on four of the tracks with Wilson, and bassist Delbert Felix and drummer John Davis make shifting appearances throughout the set too. The tunes have a shifting array of colors that's really great – showing the change of players is no accident at all – and titles include "The Vibe", "Minion", "11 02", "You'll Never Know", "3 Steps Ahead Of The Spider", and "Dream Behind The Winter".

New Arthur Russell & OthersSleeping Bag Sessions ... CD
Sleeping Bag, 1980s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Dancefloor jams, post disco soul, early NYC hip hop beats and straight up amazing 80s NYC progressive club genius from Arthur Russell – a compilation of great tracks he performed on, authored, remixed, edited or produced for Sleeping Bag in the early-to-mid 80s! Includes underground classics from Bonzo Goes To Washington, Dinosaur L, Felix, Indian Ocean and more – all touched in some way by Arthur Russell, with artists in the sessions from Jerry Harrison of Talking Heads and Bootsy Collins in Bonzo, to a collaboration with producer Nicky Siano in the tracks by Felix, and players from the earlier Loose Joints disco sessions. Incredibly important stuff on one hand, and appealingly funky 80s grooves on a more superficial level – and great stuff either way you slice it. Titles include "5 Minutes (B-B-B mix)" by Bonzo Goes To Washington, "Tiger Stripes" and "You Can't Hold Me Down" (extended mixes) by Felix, "Chill Pill (Underwater mix)" by Sounds Of JHS 126 Brooklyn, "School Bell/Tree House" by Indian Ocean, "Go Bang! (Walter Gibbons mix)" by Dinosaur L and more. CD

New SeguidaLove is...Seguida ... CD
Fania, 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Fierce and funky grooves from the glory days of the NuYorican scene! The album's a killer – filled with uptempo tracks that mix together Latin funk, jazz, and salsa – into an electrified groove that burns mightily across all the tracks! The album's got a great blend of electric keys and funky bass, layered against lots of acoustic percussion and cutting horn solos on soprano, tenor, and flute. Most tracks have vocals, and overall, the album's sort of a funkier version of the legendary Harlem River Drive album – if you can believe that! Titles include "Love Is", "NYC Blues Day", "Afro Rican Suite (parts 1 & 2)", "Mambo Rock", and "Funky Felix". CD

New VariousFolk Is Not A Four Letter Word Vol 2 ... CD
Delay 68 (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic follow-up to the first Folk Is Not A Four Letter Word compilation – and like that set, a CD that's bound to reshape your ideas of the genre! The work here is hardly the familiar folk of the 60s – and instead, tracks are pulled from a motherlode of obscure rarities that showcase a completely different style than the mainstream – folk with elements that include gentle grooves, jazzy phrasing, psychedelic production, and more! Some tracks here will definitely appeal to beatheads looking for a folk funk nugget – and lots more are from that rich underground that's come to be dubbed "acid folk" on both sides of the Atlantic at the end of the 60s. 21 tracks in all – compiled by Andy Votel. Titles include "Son Of God" by Parchment, "How Do" by Naomi, "Of Broken Links" by These Trails, "Night In The City" by Y Triban, "Balladem Om Belfast" by Midsommar, "Apres Londee" by Emmanuelle Parrenin, "Heksenkring" by Elly & Rikkert, "Waters Of Babylon" by 1159, "Song" by Turid, "Dime Felix" by Vainica Doble, and "Grey Today" by Woody Simmons.

New VariousPeru Maravilloso – Vintage Latin, Tropical, & Cumbia ... LP
Tiger's Milk/Strut (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2 LPs Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A real range of great sounds from Peru – music from the late 60s and early 70s that shows a mindblowing shift in Peruvian culture – as the door was opened to a whole host of influences from up north and overseas! Many of these tracks feature some key electric instrument – usually a guitar, but sometimes keyboards too – and a definite electric element in the production, which has key sounds getting all cool and spacey in spots you wouldn't expect – almost other-worldly in approach, with a vibe that's mighty unique! And while there's a few familiar elements from cumbia or chicha, the range of styles here goes way past the usual – with elements of psych, Latin, or other South American styles really tripping things out. One of the freshest sets we've heard in a while – with tracks that include "Salsa 73" by Chango Y Su Conjunto, "Mambo De Machaguay" by Lucho Neves, "El Chacarero" by Los Gatos Blancos, "Sueno De Amor" by Zulu, "Bailando En La Campina" by Los Orientales, "Trinan Las Golondrinas" by John Benny & Los Riberenos, "Me Siento Feliz" by Los Ecos, "Toro Mata" by Lucia De La Cruz, "El Zambito Rumbero" by Manzanita, and "La Callina" by Felix Martinez.

Twistin Rumble, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Plenty of twang, plenty of raunch, and plenty of weird and wild singles from the underground scene of the late 50s and early 60s! The cuts here are all from really tiny labels, and show why digging through mountains of 45s can always be a hell of a lot of fun – as you're always able to come up with really offbeat little gems like this – the kind of strange tracks that really fit the image on the cover! Music is a mix of R&B, early soul, and raw guitar rockers – and titles include "Sawmill" by The Admirals, "Slick Chick" by Vernon Harrel, "Two Tacos" by Felix Garcia, "Don't" by LB Wilson, "Let's Get One" by The Imperialites, "Lolo Baby" by The Medallions, "Hully Gully All Night Long" by The Peridots, "The Pig" by Ludaway, and "The Duck" by Earl Forest.
