Elvin JonesGenesis ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $18.99
Elvin Jones rose to fame in the company of one of the greatest saxophone players ever – the mighty John Coltrane – and his post-Coltrane work like this really continues a keen respect for the role of the reeds in jazz – and really does a lot to push it forward as well! There's a compelling edge to the record that's light years from Elvin's work with Coltrane – a completely new sensibility that can be spacious one minute, extremely powerful the next – and quite possibly realized to its fullest potential here, thanks to the mindblowing contributions of Dave Liebman on tenor and soprano sax, Frank Foster on tenor and flute, and Joe Farrell on alto and soprano sax. All three players work together on each track – and all shift reeds throughout the session – opening up majestically with inspiration from Elvin's drums, and some wonderful work from Gene Perla on bass. The sound is beyond easy categorization or simple style – and the record's filled with wonderful titles that include "PP Phoenix", "For All The Other Times", "Three Card Monty", and "Cecilia Is Love".

New Soul ChildrenGenesis ... LP
Stax, 1971. Near Mint- ... $32.99
A sublime early album by the Soul Children – proof that they were one of the best southern soul groups ever! Genesis has the group grooving in a raw Memphis sound, similar to their earlier recordings – but with a bit more sophistication and care on the vocals than before, reaching for a tighter, more modern sound than some of their contemporaries, showing the group to already be thinking towards the next level. Titles on the set include "I Want To Be Loved", "Hearsay", "All That Shines Ain't Gold", "I'm Loving You More Everyday", and "All Day Preachin". LP, Vinyl record album

Charles SullivanGenesis (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Strata East/Universal (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... Around November 8, 2014
A brilliant session from trumpeter Charles Sullivan – a player who's only recorded a handful of dates as a leader, all of them great! This album's got a unique history, in that it was issued both by the Inner City and Strata East labels in the 70s – and overall, it's got a vibe that's right up there with the best Strata East sets of the time – thanks to help from a wonderfully hip lineup that includes Dee Dee Bridgewater on vocals, Stanley Cowell on piano, Sonny Fortune on alto sax, and Billy Hart on drums! With a lineup like that, it would be hard to miss – but Sullivan also manages to round the players up into a sound that's really unique, too – very much his own musical vision, with a great balance between sensitive moments, and boldly righteous statements. Other players include L Sharon Freeman on electric piano, Onaje Allen Gumbs on piano, and Alphonse Mouzon on drums – and titles includes the great jammer "Field Holler", plus the tracks "Now I'll Sleep", "Genesis", "Goodbye Sweet John", and "Evening Song".

New GenesisNursery Cryme ... LP
Charisma, 1971. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An early masterpiece from Genesis – the kind of visionary record that really set them apart from the rest of their generation – an incredible building-up in sound from their previous two albums, and proof that Peter Gabriel's talents were finally getting focused in the right direction! Keyboards cascade heavily – hitting Yes-like proportions, but with more structure, too – as time changes abound, scene changes match the energy of theme-changes – and the whole album falls into place beautifully, but with plenty of surprises along the way. Every song is a compelling little story – from the leadoff "Musical Box", to the spooky "Return Of The Giant Hogweed", and the playful "Harold The Barrel" – with sweeter moments that include "For Absent Friends" and "Harlequin" – just hinting at the crossover ballad style the group would embrace later, but without any of the cloying commerciality at all.

New Wayne ShorterSecond Genesis ... LP
Vee Jay, Early 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Insanely wonderful pre-Blue Note session that was recorded by Vee Jay in the early 60's, but was never released at the time. The set features a totally fantastic tight quartet with Art Blakey playing hard hard hard drums, Cedar Walton jamming on piano, and Shorter blowing away in a perfectly magical way on a bunch of great originals. The material's fantastic, the sound is great, and the whole thing's one of Shorter's best albums ever! This was supposed to be Shorter's 3rd album for the label, and who knows, it might have saved them and kept him away from Blue Note if it was released, but such was not the fate of the session – as it only ever came out on vinyl in this mid 70s release on the short-lived Vee Jay International label. Tracks include "Tenderfoot", "The Albatross", and "Ruby & The Pearl". LP, Vinyl record album

New Wendy & BonnieGenesis (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Skye/Sundazed, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Very groovy 60s pop from Wendy & Bonnie – with a bit of a folksy influence, and a sound that's groovy sunshine personified! The greatness herein is no surprise, considering that Gary McFarland arranged and produced the album as one of his late 60s forays from jazz into rock – and you can hear Gary's strong talent for a subtle jazz-tinged sound on most of the album's best tracks. That said, Wendy & Bonnie deserve the biggest kudos, their lovely, easygoing harmonies providing the personality and the sweetness the really carries it all over. Includes "Let Yourself Go Another Time", "The Paisley Window Pane", "I Realized You", "By The Sea", "You Keep Hanging Up On My Mind", "It's What's Really Happening", "Endless Pathway", "Children Laughing" and "The Winter Is Cold".

Beastie BoysLicensed To Ill ... CD
Def Jam, 1986. New Copy ... $4.99 5.98
The game-changing Def Jam classic from the mid 80s – and still possibly the greatest album by the Beastie Boys – even though they'd grow up a whole lot after this! The Beasties later distanced themselves from much of the attitude of this album, and you can't fault the Boys for maturing. Their genesis from stoopid (as opposed to stupid) to thoughtful and playful innovators is as impressive as just about any artistic evolution we can think of, but that doesn't make these party anthems any less amazing! With all the killer cuts you remember – "Rhymin & Stealin", "The New Style", "Girls", "Fight For Your Right To Party", "No Sleep Til Brooklyn", "Paul Revere", "Hold It Now Hit It", "She's Crafty", and more.

Family Groove, Mid 70s. New Copy ... $13.99
Amazing sounds from the SF scene of the 70s – previously unreleased work that really opens up a whole new chapter of jazz on the west coast! The HE3 Project is the brainchild of keyboardist Herman Ebertizsch – who plays lots of Fender Rhodes and moog on this sweet little record – really driving some amazing lines for a wickedly soulful group that also features Coke Escovedo on timbales and Linda Tillery and Johnny Lovett on vocals! Supposedly, these sessions were the genesis of the groove that Escovedo later laid down on Mercury Records – but the sound here is a lot more open-ended and funky – a beautiful combination of jazz and soul elements, put together in ways that are quite different than any other Bay Area acts of the time. Titles include "Rapture Of The Deep", "Funk Punk", "Appreciation", "Life Is A Tortured Love Affair", "Make It Sweet", "We All Have Our Own Lives", "In A Soft & Subtle Way", and "Easy Come Easy Go".

A beautiful book that documents the overlooked legacy of Brion Gysin – contemporary and collaborator of William S Burroughs and other important beat figures – but also an artist with a vision that goes way beyond that initial moment! The book brings together a wealth of images of Gysin's creations – his paintings, photos, printed work, and even instructions for building your own version of his legendary dream machine – alongside historical details on Brion and key moments of his life, plus reflections on his importance by John Giorno, Genesis P Orridge, and others.

Kool KeithKutmasta Kurt Presents – Sex Style Unreleased Archives ... CD
Threshold, Early 90s. Used ... $6.99
Unreleased tracks from Kool Keith circa '93 '94 – with beats and production by Kutmasta Kurt, many made in collaboration with Dan The Automator – the genesis of the classic Sex Style record that didn't appear for a couple more years! Kurt's beats are funky bedrock excellence, and Keith's delivery is as dead on perfect as his rhymes are over the top and ridiculous. The sleazy theme wears on your patience after a while, as it did on the official Sex Style – but this is still the work of a couple cats at nearly the top of their game. Titles include "Prepare", "You Know The Game", "Droppin' Seeds", "Why You Frontin'?", "Remember Me?", "Freak It", "Time For Business", "You Get Yours", "Spread 'Em", "Erotic Ride" and more. CD

Le OrmeFelona/L'Equilibrio (2014 Record Store Day Release) ... 7-inch
Philips/Universal (Italy), 1973. New Copy (pic cover)... $19.99
Quite a cool one from this hip prog band – a special single in a very cool cover – with great sound throughout! "Felona" begins with this cool bell-like chime – ringing out over strummed acoustic guitar with the tune's joyous lyric – before the whole thing then hits a heavier proggish keyboard and electric part in the middle! "L'Equilibrio" starts with a wicked keyboard line right at the start – as great as anything that Yes or Genesis might have produced at the time – especially the latter – and the solo near the end is worth the price of the whole single! 7-inch, Vinyl record

MF DoomOperation Doomsday (double cassette tin) ... Cassette
Metal Face, 1999. New Copy ... $26.99 29.98
The first full length from MF Doom –setting the standard for underground hip hop to come! On this modern classic, Doom caps off the 90s with more jazzy soul in the beats, and some semblance of straightforward, if busy rhyme mastery from Doom & his guests – taken to the outer limits! What really pushes this one into legendary status are how well he works with creaky comic adventure samples, and it's the genesis of Doom's metal face supervillain personae. Looking back, it's clearly the building blocks for deeper insanity to come, but this one has a sound structure. Probably his best album. Includes "Doomsday", "Rhymes Like Dimes" feat Cucumber Slice, "The Finest" feat Tommy Gun, "Go With The Flow", "Tick Tick", "Hey!", "The Mic", "Dead Bent", "?" feat Kurious and much more. This cool double cassette edition comes in a oversized, almost cigar box-size tin box with the Doom mask stamped/embossed/etched on it. The original album is on the green cassette, and it includes a red cassette of bonus material. Cassette

Eric Roberson, 2001. New Copy ... $9.99
The genesis of a modern soul genius – Eric Roberson's first album, finally back in print, and filled with a wonderful assortment of early work! Eric kind of set this one up as an introduction to his wide range of talents – including notes in the booklet about each tune and the story of its development – and, in keeping with his strong sense of good spirits, also giving credit to other artists, producers, and friends who helped him find his sound. The sound is quite similar to work on Eric's seminal Vault albums – mellow, but never slick or smooth – and in a warmly personal style that's made Roberson one of the greatest underground soul artists working today! Titles include "Genesis", "4U", "Runaway", "Morning After", "Crazy", "Rain On My Parade", "Woman", "New Born Child", "She Went Away", and "Funny Feelings". CD

At times, the record builds into a sound that's freer and more challenging than on some of Shorter's other albums from the time – but it does so in more of the "new thing" mode that you'd hear on records from the time by Jackie McLean or Moncur, with an overall sense of purpose that really keeps the message clear. Features all original compositions by the Shorter brothers – and cuts include "Chaos", "Face Of The Deep", "Mephistopheles", and "Genesis". LP, Vinyl record album

Subtle brilliance from Caetano Veloso – just the sort of record to still remind you what a genius he can be, even when he's not hitting you over the head with his music! The style here is relatively straightforward MPB, but still done in a way that's head and shoulders above just about anyone else – songs that have a presence and personality that goes way beyond a simple understanding of language – and which crackle with wonderfully warm vocals from the maturing Caetano. Any sense of softness is more than supported with a deep amount of spirit – and the album's beautifully intimate feel throughout. Titles include the track "Sina", sung with Djavan, "Surpresa", written with Joao Donato, and the tunes "Genesis", "Sonhos", "Meu Bem Meu Mal", and "Trem Das Cores". CD

Jewel/Fuel 2000, 1960s/1970s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $16.99 17.98
A nice collection of the blusier groovers on Jewel and Paula – from the mid 60s and on through the 70s – with underappreciated gems from stars like Bobby Rush, Fontella Bass, Lightnin' Hopkins and Lowell Fulsom, plus equally strong singles by The Carter Brothers, Peppermint Harris, Brenda George, Wild Child Butler, Jimmy Preacher Ellis, Teddy Taylor and many more! Label founder Stan Lewis's roots are in Shreveport, LA, but the genesis of his Jewel label – and the later Paula and Ronn imprints – are inspired by Chicago's Chess Records empire. So there's more of an amplified Chicago sound on a good deal of the material – with touches of contemporary soul and R&B. Nice! 36 tracks on 2CDs: "Southern Country Boy" by The Carter Brothers, "You Love Me Pretty Baby" by Banny Price, "Homogenized Love" by Jerry McCain, "Move On" by Curtis Griffin, "My Back Scrather" by Frank Frost, "Count The Days I'm Gone" by Ray Agee, "Back Door Friend" by Lightnin Hopkins, "Put It All In There" by Wild Child Butler", "True Love" by Al Prince, "Sleeper" by Lowell Fulsom, "Go On And Help Yourself' by Albert Washington, "Food Stamp Blues Pt. 1" by Eddie Lang, "Stoop Down Baby" by Cash McCall, "Home Wrecker" by Fontella Bass and more.

GAD (Poland), 1971/Early 80s. New Copy ... $16.99
Classic cuts from a famous Polish TV show – mostly pulled from the rich catalog of the German Sonoton sound library! The music here is very heavy on keyboards and tight, dramatic grooves – music that's often in the best modes that so few sound libraries could manage at the time – a style that still hangs on to the higher quality inspirations from 70s funk or soundtrack material, without as much of the clunk that more commercial libraries ran into. Things are also usually full and focused, too – still quite electric and electronic, but without any too-dreamy soundscapes or new-agey bits. The book features full notes on the show and the music in both English and Polish – and titles include "Sound Tide" and "Speedy" by The Milan Pilar Group, "That's Fancy 1" and "Threat To Research" by Sammy Burdson, "Biopulse 2" and "Genesis 1" by Claude Larson, "Back From Wonderland" and "Alexandria" by Mladen Franko, "Star Drops" and "Foreground" by Jeff Newmann, "International Scoop" by Ted Atking & Alain French, and "Touch Tone Keyboard" by Sam Sklar & Gus Galbraith. Also includes one older British cut – "Visitation" by Mike Vickers – used as the main theme of the show! CD

Throbbing Gristle20 Jazz Funk Greats (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Industrial (UK), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... Around October 1, 2014
The title might seem like a joke – given Throbbing Gristle's reputation for intense noise and dark sounds – but at another level, it's actually a great fit for the spirit of the record too! The sound here is a lot leaner than before – almost as if TG is focusing in on the best elements that made their earlier performances so great – exposing a hidden talent for a song, a groove, and even an occasional melody – in ways that almost refine and filter down the whole of German 70s electronics into a spirit of post-punk expression! Subject matter is still pretty darn dark, and vocals are as creepy as ever – thanks Genesis P – but there's also more of the electronics that Chris & Cosey would soon explore on their own. Titles include "20 Jazz Funk Greats", "Beachy Head", "Still Walking", "Tanith", "Convincing People", "Exotica", "Hot On The Hells Of Love", "Persuasion", "Walkabout", "What A Day", and "Six Six Sixties".

The first solo set from Peter Gabriel – and a record that was quite a surprise upon initial release – kind of a stripped-down variant of the energy that Gabriel brought to his early work with Genesis, presented in a nicely lean way that allowed for all the best focus on his key ideas! The style here is light years away from the last moments Gabriel was with Genesis – although there's still a few nice touches of the Lamb Lies Down generation, too – and the vocals are more pointed, more focused, and arguably more personal too. Instrumentation holds up better than you might expect – especially as there was no move at all to nod to the nascent punk generation – and titles include the hit "Solsbury Hill", plus "Modern Love", "Slowburn", "Humdrum", "Waiting For The Big One", "Down The Dolce Vita", and "Here Comes The Flood".

Latin Percussion Ventures, 1978. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A hell of a trumpeter – making his debut here on one of the grooviest albums on the legendary Latin Percussion label! The session's a bit fuller than some of the other LP albums – a crackling blend of jazz, funk, and Latin rhythms – warm, but with some pretty complicated moments, very much in the best spirit of the second wave of NuYorica grooves! There's still lots of the tight percussion that makes Latin Percussion sessions so great – but the record also features fuller instrumentation too – in ways that really make things soar. Players include Eddie Martinez on Fender Rhodes, Jon Faddis and Randy Brecker on additional trumpets, Steve Khan on guitar, and Carlos Patato Valdez on congas – and Ruben Blades even plays a bit of acoustic guitar on the record. The overall feel's a bit like some of the great Fania/Columbia co-productions – but a bit rawer at points – and titles include "Diana", "Genesis", "Nice & Warm", "Viva Martinez", "I Know", "Hot Blood", and "Perico" – most of which are separated by short percussion interludes!

Grunt, 1974. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The mid 70s solo record by Jorma Kaukonen – the legendary guitarist for Jefferson Airplane and Hot Tuna – and a really great, sort of back to basics acoustic set! In direct contrast to some of the more bombastic rock coming out of the Jefferson Airplane camp in the early 70s, those one has a rootsier psych folk vibe. Holds up well decades later, too – with titles that include "Genesis", "I'll Be All Right", "Song For The North Star", "Anotehr Man Done Gone" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Hand numbered edition of 2500 copies.)

New Music EnsembleMusic Ensemble ... CD
Roaratorio, Mid 70s. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A brilliant portrait of the mid 70s NYC improvisation scene by the Music Ensemble – a collective featuring Billy Bang on violin, William Parker on bass, Roger Baird on drums, percussion and flute, Malik Baraka on trumpet and Daniel Carter tenor, alto, flute and percussion! The pieces generally start with a roomy, measured dynamic and grow in intensity, never really getting too intense, and showcasing the intuitive interplay with the players. As Chicago residents, we can really feel the genesis of the later sounds of this city's improv scene, but the style casts a pretty wide net of influence. Baird's archival tapes supplied the material for this CD, and the tracks includes 2 long pieces – the 31+ minute "Stance Dance (Courage)" recorded in April of 1974 at Kingsborough College in Brooklyn with bass by Herb Kahn, and the 18+ minute "Arithmetical Mystic" from a February 1975 date at NYC's Holy Name School Auditorium. The other pieces, "Echoes Wind Transpire" and "Radiatory Fineness", a from the February '75 date. CD

New Suck Electronic EnciclopedicAsfixia Al Carrer Valencia (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Wah Wah (Spain), 1976/1977. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
We can say one thing for sure – these guys definitely don't suck, as their electronics are some of the most inventive we've ever heard on the European scene of the 70s – a really unique Spanish hybrid of influences from all the best German groups of the period, but taken out into much darker territory! Although most of the instrumentation here comes from keyboards and self-built synthesizers, there's also some heavy drums and guitar – which bring a strong focus, and this brooding energy that might well link these guys to some of the harder rock acts of the time, although all without any posturing at all. The blend is pretty great – as if Black Sabbath picked up keyboards and fired Ozzy, or if Genesis or Yes were more into instrumental passages with tripped-out echoey sax lines – instead of any vocals. Titles include "Se'n Van Les Verges", "Intro 2051", "El Cantir Fa L'Aigua Fresca", and "L'Entrepa". LP, Vinyl record album

New Beach BoysFriends/20/20 ... CD
Capitol, Late 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
An amazing little CD – one that features 2 of the best post-Smile Beach Boys albums in one package, plus some excellent bonus cuts too! Friends is a completely incredible record – one that's built around small, short, sweet songs that are almost an adult take on themes of relationships first explored in Pet Sounds – produced with a homier and more personal approach that's really great. Classics on the album include "Busy Doin Nothin", "Transcendental Meditation", "Little Bird", "Anna Lee The Healer", "Be Here In The Morning", "Friends", and "Wake The World". 20/20 is a slightly lesser album, but still pretty nice too – and is noteworthy as the repository of some bits that were destined to originally appear on Smile, and never made the Smiley Smile cut – as well as the genesis of some of the ideas that would come out more fully on the excellent Sunflower and Surf's Up albums. And in fact, if the Beach Boys had never cut another album, 20/20 would be a masterpiece – and it's only through comparison with their real classics that it only weakens a bit. Tracks 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". And if that's not enough, the CD features excellent bonus cuts like "Break Away", "Celebrate The News", "We're Together Again", and a cover of "Walk On By"! CD

New John Cleese, Graham Chapman, Marty Feldman, et alAt Last The 1948 Show ... CD
Pye/El (UK), 1967. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Rare pre-Monty Python work from John Cleese and Graham Chapman – working here as part of the cast of At Last The 1948 Show, along with Marty Feldman and Tim Brooke-Taylor! The approach is quite similar to that of Python – particularly some of the interviews, news bits, and conversational gags that would show up on the later show – and in fact, there's a good number of these tracks that show the early genesis of gags that would blow up bigger in later Python years. The whole thing's quite out there – especially given the 1967 date of the show – and in addition to regular sketch material, the CD also features two songs with Cleese singing in the lead – "The Rhubarb Tart Song" and "The Ferret Song". Other titles include "Sheep Dog Trials", "Bookshop", "One Man Battalion", "Engine Driver Spriggs", "The Four Sydney Lotterbies", "Beekeeping", and "Witch Restaurant". CD
