Julie BuddJulie Budd ... LP
RCA, 1971. Sealed ... $9.99
A hip early 70s album arranged and produced by Tony Hatch – not nearly as well known as his work with Jackie Trent or Petula Clark, but still pretty darn great nonetheless! Julie's got a style that's a bit less poppy than some of her predecessors – at least not in a 60s way – and she slides out nicely here with a warm quality that's rich and full, but gets a good sense of pacing and timing from Hatch. In other hands, Budd might be a bit too over the top, or too emotive – but Tony's skill with singers really helps her find focus here, on a set of tunes that include "Touch Me", "Just Say Goodbye", "How Can I Be Sure", "West Side Apartment", "You've Got A Friend", and a remake of "Call Me".

Bob Downes Open MusicYou're Funkin' Good ... CD
Bob Downes Music, 2001. Used ... $4.99
A clunky title, a so-so cover, a later recording date – and yet, the record's wonderful overall – a surprisingly funky effort from British reedman Bob Downes! The album is Bob's tribute to funky sounds oif the 60s and 70s – and although it includes a few tracks penned by Downes back in the day, the music was recorded in the past decade or so – yet done with a surprisingly classic feel overall – one that really serves the funky style of the music very well! The group is very stripped-down – just a trio with electric bass and keyboards, plus Downes on tenor, alto, flute, soprano sax, and even a bit of vocals – the kind of shouted, James Brown-chorus type – which are processed here to give them a really offbeat sound. The whole thing's pretty great – and you can bet that if this was a small label pressing from the US scene of a few decades back, it would be changing hands for a pretty penny. Titles include "Afro Swing", "Happy Funk", "A Man Without A Woman", "Pow Wow", "Funky Groove", "Hottin Up", "C'Mon Baby", and "You're Funkin Good". CD

Ruthann FriedmanComplete Constant Companion Sessions ... CD
Reprise/Now Sounds (UK), 1969. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the only full albums ever issued by the lovely Ruthann Friedman – a talent who's known both for her seminal 60s work as a songwriter in LA, and for a slew of unreleased tracks that never saw the light of day! This album's different – and is a lasting testament to Friedman's strength as a singer/songwriter – a really under-produced late 60s Warner Brothers gem that mostly just features Ruthann's vocals and acoustic guitar – a mode that might have sounded folksy a few years before, but which takes on the pride and power of the Joni Mitchell generation in Friedman's hands – with lots of dark undercurrents and surprising jazzy inflections in both the vocals and guitar. Titles include "Topsy Turvy Moon", "Ringing Bells", "Morning Becomes You", "Peaceable Kingdom", "Danny", "No Time", and "Look Up To The Sun". CD also features 12 more tracks recorded for Warner at the time, but never issued – including sessions with help from Ry Cooder, Van Dyke Parks, and members of The Byrds. Some of these expand the instrumentation a bit more – but the vibe is very much the same – and titles include "World's End", "The Sky Is Moving South", "Have A Good Time", "Carry On Through", and "Chocolate Sea" – plus an early demo of her classic composition "Windy".

Doris JonesSuddenly I'm Alive ... LP
AVI, 1978. Sealed ... $5.99
Obscure disco work from Doris Jones – not the strongest singer on the block, but a good fit here for the upbeat arrangements of the tunes! Pip Williams handled most of the arrangements here – and all tracks were written and produced by Ian Levine – done in that sparkling style of some of his other US disco work of the late 70s. Titles include "No Way Out", "Possessed", "Time On My Hands", "Suddenly I'm Alive", and "Can't You See The Smile On My Face". LP, Vinyl record album

Dean MartinDream With Dean (2014 Record Store Day Release) (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Reprise/Legacy, 1964. New Copy ... $19.99 24.98
Easy to dream with Dean Martin with the record's this mellow – a great late night session that really shows Dino sparkling on a set of laidback ballads and love tunes! The style's a great reminder that Martin could be as good of a ballad singer as he was an upbeat jokester and hipster – a quality that didn't always some through as strongly in his Rat Pack years. Backing is by a cool jazz combo – with Barney Kessel on guitar, Ken Lane on piano, Red Mitchell on bass, and Irv Cottler on drums – and titles include "I'll Buy That Dream", "I'm Confessin", "Blue Moon", "I Don't Know Why", "Hands Across The Table", "Smile", and the original recording of "Everybody Loves Somebody".

Willie NelsonIt Will Come To Pass – The Metaphysical Worlds & Poetic Introspections Of Willie Nelson ... CD
RCA/Omni (Australia), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $16.99 19.98
Willie Nelson without the long hair – really sounding great on a set of early recordings for RCA! That amazing voice is already very firmly in place – that sharp, raspy tone that was an instant original in country music – especially when singing Nelson's own words, which really dominate this wonderful collection – a set that, as you'd guess from the title, really highlights Willie's more contemplative nature! The whole thing's wonderfully free from any overdone country music cliches – and is a great document of this under-reissued side of Nelson's catalog – the roots that led to the superstardom of the 70s, but with a much more personal, heartfelt quality too. CD features 28 tracks in all – and titles include "Healing Hands Of Time", "Suffer In Silence", "Truth Number One", "Jimmy's Road", "Pages", "Little Things", "Blackjack County Chain", "Me & Paul", "These Are Difficult Times Remember The Good Times", "Born To Lose", "The Ghost", and "Darkness On The Face Of The Earth".

Luaka Bop, Late 70s/1980s. New Copy 5LP box set ... $69.99 74.99
An incredible legacy in music – presented here in a really wonderful package! For years, the music of William Onyeabar has been the stuff of legend, but only accessible to a few who could get their hands on scarce original pressings – but that lack has really been corrected by this wonderful set, which is the first to offer up full album reissues of Onyeabar's magical music, complete with all the original artwork! William's got a sound that's unlike anyone else we can think of – a weird mix of African rhythms and contemporary 70s keyboards – served up in a hypnotic blend of boogie and underground club styles borrowed from the US, but delivered with an earthy, very personal quality – a sound that's gotten Onyeabar plenty of attention over the years. And while Luaka Bop did a wonderful job on collecting together some of his best tracks for their Who Is William Onyeabor compilation, the music here all deserves to be heard – as each record is really something special, and every long track has its own sort of magnetic attraction for the listener! Volume 2 of the LP box includes the albums Crashes In Love (2), Body & Soul, Hypertension, and Good Name. LP, Vinyl record album

A fierce combination of piano and percussion – the former by Sten Sandell, the latter by Paal Nilsson Love – two very well-matched improvisers! The tracks here are mostly long and dynamic – very freewheeling performances by both musicians, but at a level that really holds strong with a good sense of focus – the kind of sounds that migh run off the rail in the hands of two lesser players, but which continue to burn very hard from the team of Sten and Paal! Tracks include "Jacana", "Kauri", and "Curvature". CD

Johnny Hammond SmithThat Good Feelin' ... LP
New Jazz, 1959. Very Good- ... $19.99
Good feelings and plenty of soul – some very early work as a leader from Hammond hero Johnny Smith! The set's got Johnny using the organ with lots of stops out – that full, wide range of the instrument that initially knocked so many folks for a loop when it first came into jazz – then really took strong formation in the hands of a player like this! The groove's a bit like a Jimmy Smith record for Blue Note, but a lot grittier too – with some occasional elements of R&B mixed in with the more far-reaching jazz sensibilities. The group features Thornel Schwartz on guitar, who'd played famously with Jimmy Smith – plus George Tucker on bass and Leo Stevens on drums. Titles include the originals "Puddin" and "That Good Feelin" – plus "My Funny Valentine", "I'll Remember April", and "Billie's Bounce". LP, Vinyl record album

Paul WinterRio ... LP
Columbia, Mid 60s. Very Good ... $6.99
Even though Paul Winter's always been a little bit of a phony, this bossa LP on Columbia is pretty good stuff! The record was recorded with some of Brazil's best bossa players – like Luiz Bonfa, Roberto Menescal, and Luiz Eca (of Tamba Trio fame). John Hammond produced the session, so you can be sure it's got the kind of rootsy sound that will make the tracks have a bit more kick than if the album was in the hands of a regular pop-bossa producer. Titles include "Avion", "Reza", "Vagamente", "Ela E Carioca", "Zomba", and "Alem Da Imaginacao". LP, Vinyl record album
(White label 2 eye pressing. Cover has a tracklist sticker, some marker, and a center split on the top seam.)

VariousChicago Soul – Electric Blues, Funk & Soul – The New Sound Of Chicago In The 1960's ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $22.99
A massive overview of the genius Chicago scene of the late 60s – and a set that's overflowing with some of the heaviest music ever recorded! The collection focuses on the most groundbreaking work from the later Chess years – particularly the funky blues, psychedelic soul, and tripped out jazz that was coming out of the Cadet Concept studios in the hands of producers like Charles Stepney, Richard Evans, and Marshall Chess! The Chess groups were ahead of their time by decades – blending together styles without a thought of simple genre restrictions, often forsaking chart fame and record sales in pursuit of an adventurous groove. And while some of the artists on the set may be familiar names, we can promise that most of them are presented in styles that you may not have heard before – as the collection features many unreissued numbers that are making their first reappearance here! CD set comes with a 40 page set of notes – and features 20 tracks in all, including "Please Newsboy" by Eve Barnum, "Burning Spear" by Soulful Strings, "More & More" by Little Milton, "Baltimore Oriole" by Lorez Alexandria, "Soul Vibrations" by Dorothy Ashby, "Evil" by Howlin Wolf, "Stereo Freeze" by The Stereos, "The Way I Feel" by Phil Upchurch, "Mama's Got A Good Thing" by Laura Lee, "The Wailer" by Sonny Cox, "Leave It In The Hands Of Love" by Fontella Bass, "Why Am I Treated So Bad" by The Majestic Choir & The Soul Stirrers, "She Suits Me To A Tee" by Buddy Guy, "Memory Band" by Rotary Connection, and "In My Body's House" by Gene Chandler.

VariousJoey Negro – Remixed With Love ... CD
Z Records (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $16.99
Joey Negro takes on a host of killer club cuts from the end of the 70s – and turns in some of his best remix work to date! Given that Joey's own music is always very classic-styled – whether as The Sunburst Band, or under other names – his approach here is very respectful of the originals, and really serves to just enhance elements of these tunes that we might have missed in the first place! And honestly, the set's filled with numbers we never would have expected to be so great in this setting – cuts that were already pretty good, but which sparkle in brilliant new ways in the hands of Joey Negro – all with a deeply soulful energy that takes us back to the Warehouse or Paradise Garage. Titles include completely unique mixes of "Welcome To Our World" by Mass Production, "Hot Shot" by Karen Young, "I Love To Dance" by Kleeer, "I Should've Loved Ya" by Narada Michael Walden, "Down For The Third Time" by Bobby Caldwell, "The Same Old Scene" by Roxy Music, "Love Money" by TW Funkmasters, "Haven't You Heard" by Patrice Rushen, "Get On Up Get On Down" by Roy Ayers, "Over & Over" by Ashford & Simpson, "Half A Minute" by Matt Bianco, "Always" by Electric Empire, and "Cosmic Lust" by Mass Production.

VariousNicola Conte Presents Mystic Prestige – Deep Afrocentric Modal Jazz From Prestige Archives ... CD
Prestige/Universal (Japan), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $28.99
Nicola Conte digs deep into the catalog of Prestige Records – and comes up with a host of spiritual and modal jazz tunes in the process! Conte's ears are always wonderful – not just on his own albums, or his work with Schema Records – but also when he's given material like this – sounds that might seem familiar at the outset, but which really bristle with new energy in his hands! You'll recognize most of the artists here, but Nicola's done an excellent job of pulling out really special tracks – including some under-heard album gems that resonate with some of the earliest examples of spiritual undercurrents in jazz. Titles include "Taboo" by Yusef Lateef, "Poinciana" by Jerome Richardson, "Blues In Bloom" by Gigi Gryce, "Cubano Chant" by Art Taylor, "Talkin Bout JC" by Larry Young, "Barengo" by Barry Harris, "Quiet Dawn" by Cedar Walton, "Feeling Good" by Andy & The Bey Sisters, and "Stolen Moments" by Eddie Lockjaw Davis.

VariousRolling With The Punches – The Allen Toussaint Songbook ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... $14.99
Heavy funk, deep soul, and lots lots more – an amazing testament to the songwriting skills of New Orleans legend Allen Toussaint! Allen was a heck of a singer on his own – but he also worked plenty behind the scenes in the 60s and 70s – lending his tunes to many others, and producing a good number of recordings as well – some of the best of which are featured in this sweet little set! The package features two dozen smoking tunes from the pen of Toussaint – songs that are heavy on influences from New Orleans soul and funk – already sounding great in the hands of other soul singers in the collection, and really helping transform the style of other artists in ways you might not expect. The whole thing's got the same righteous vibe as Allen's best records from the 70s – and titles include "I'll Be Rolling" by Millie Jackson, "Hercules" by Boz Scaggs, "Occapella" by Lee Dorsey, "Get Out Of My Life Woman" by Solomon Burke, "Sweet Touch Of Love" by Irma Thomas, "Sneakin Sally Thru The Alley" by Robert Palmer, "What Do You Want The Girl To Do" by Lowell George, "Shoo Rah" by Frankie Miller, "Fortune Teller" by Benny Spellman, "Freedom For The Stallion" by Bill Medley, "Whoever's Thrilling You" by ZZ Hill, "Tampin" by The Rhine Oaks, "A Certain Girl" by Warren Zevon, and even "Southern Nights" by Glen Campell.

New Krzysztof KomedaCul De Sac – Original Soundtrack ... CD
Soundtrack Classics (Germany), Early 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Dark and spooky jazz from the godlike hands of Kryzstof Komeda! Komeda's best known in the US for his soundtrack work for the film Rosemary's Baby, but this album features tracks he scored for an earlier Roman Polanski film, the dark thriller Cul De Sac. The music is a strange blend of bossa nova, crime jazz, and some sci-fi touches – horns, piano, off-beat rhythms, and some odd production serving up a wonderful set of tunes that make the album one of Komeda's best soundtracks ever. 7 tracks in all – but it's also the only way you'll find this material in this form, and comes with a good set of notes on the music and Komeda. Titles include "Walk On The Water", "Pushing The Car", "Radio One", "Cul De Sac", and "Dicky's Death". CD

SST/MVD, 1986. Used (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The Meat Puppets in one of their peak periods – less shambling than on their first few trailblazing records, sure – and kind of recasting ragged rock in their defiantly weird image! They're flirting with more the mainstream rock sound here, but it's still too weird and Meat Puppet-y for most people. Kinda boogie-oriented southwestern hard rock, but wild-eyed and frayed in ever-brilliant ways. Includes "She's Hot", "Out My Way", "Other Kinds Of Love", "Not Swimming Ground", "Mountain Line", their insane take on "Good Golly Miss Molly" (a song that's rambunctious in anyone's hands, but you'll need to sit down after the Meat Puppets version) and more. 2013 reissue includes 4 bonus tracks that weren't on the original vinyl release: "I Just Want To Make Love To You", "On The Move", "Everything Is Green".

New Gil Scott-HeronReflections ... LP
Arista, 1981. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great little album that's often overshadowed by its hit – the 15 minute "B-Movie", which was sort of an overly-wrought protest piece about how the election of Ronald Reagan in 1980 was going to turn America into a bad b-movie. Not that that track's bad – although its politics have certainly dated by now – but the real strength of the album are the jazzy numbers, written in Gil's beautiful righteous style forged in the soul jazz underground of the 70s. These include the stellar "Is That Jazz?", a contemplative track about the future of the art form, a mellow version of Bill Withers' "Grandma's Hands", the moody "Storm Music", and "Gun", a good groover with a message about the right to bear arms.

With all of Stones Throw's efforts to resurrect the funk legacy in recent months, it's fantastic to see that a mutha of a confrontational underground hip hop long player found it's way onto the release slate – with appearances by like minded MCs like Aceyalone, Tha Liks, Phil Da Agony, Percee P, Medaphoar, Planet Asia, and LMNO on board. Nice, nice, nice stuff – the best hip hop LP on Stones Throw in a good year or so. Tracks include "Code Red", "Hands Up", The Come Off", "The Movenment, Pt. 2", "Kiana", "Knicknack 2002", "Puttin' In Work", "Wonder Years", "Party Up", and "Operation Radio Raid".

As the title indicates, Johnson's singing here with up-and-coming vocalist Melody Whittle – a contemporary artist, but one with deep soul touches that work perfectly with Syl's classic approach – all wrapped up here with a style that's partly old school, and partly that modern evolution of the southern soul style you might find on a label like Malaco – further proof that Johnson just keeps on growing after all these years! Daughter Syleena makes an appearance on the set, and shades things in with some of her own flavors too – and titles include a few remakes of old tracks too. Tracks include "Mr Invisible", "I'm With You Too", "Turn Back The Hands Of Time", "Is It Because I'm Black 2006", "Ms Fine Brown Frame", "Loving On The Run", "Baby I'm Scared Of You", "Goodie Goodie Good Times", "Mellow Down Easy", "I'm Just A Freak For You", and "Just Make Love To You".

An amazing package – filled with loads of rare gems – all vintage vinyl nuggets from the enormous collection of The Cramps! Lux Interior and Poison Ivy are legendary record collectors – and have been digging in thrift stores, warehouses, and basements for many decades – filling a love of music that even predates the formation of their famous group – and which went onto inform the sounds they made on their own! Given that the duo were out there digging for many years before the rest of us, they've definitely gotten their hands on some amazing gems over the years – a good number of which are presented here – subtitled in ways that really give you an idea of the sounds – "ghoulish exotica", "lip-curling rock n roll", "crazy mixed up sounds", and "instrumental madness". Titles include "The Cave" by Gary Spider Webb, "Wild Man Walk" by The Ebonettes, "Mashed Potatoes" by Noble Watts, "Unitar Rock" by Willie Joe & His Unitar, "Jibba Jab" by Tic & Toc, "From The Top Of Your Guggle" by The Five Blobs, "Gang War" by Gene Maltais, "Sugar Doll" by Johnny Jay, "Bongo Beatin Beatnik" by Joe Hall & The Corvettes, and "Dragon Walk" by The Noblemen.

New Bobby MontezJungle Fantastique ... CD
CuBop/Ubiquity, 1958. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An incredible record – one of the best sides of Latin jazz you could ever hope to find! West coast vibist Bobby Montez had a fantastic sound during the 50s – one that mixed together Latin rhythms in a way that few other players were using. He kind of fixed on a changing modal groove, the sort that would later be used more heavily by Dave Pike or Bobby Vince Paunetto – and he worked his combo like a shifting plate of rhythms, swirling around the grooves on piano, bass, and percussion in a weirdly complicated way, yet never failing to swing, or to hit that right groove for the dancefloor. This 1958 album is a rare gem – the sort that changes hands for hundreds of dollars in the original, and for good reason. It's been lovingly remastered here – and we're pleased as punch that it's finally back out again at a good price! The whole thing's brilliant – with loads of great tracks like "African Fantasy", "Jungle Sunset", "Chango", "Swinging At The M", and "Cha Cha Cha Por Neuva York". CD

New Tyrone DavisTurning Point (with bonus track) ... CD
Dakar/Solid (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of Tyrone Davis' last albums for Dakar – and a great one too – issued in 1976 before the demise of that label, and Tyrone's big move to Columbia Records! Tyrone's still working strongly here in that great Chicago mix of smooth and rough – a sound first forged on his early Dakar hits, and carried through strongly here by arrangers Tom Tom and James Mack – who still keep a lot of the indie elements that made Davis' music for Dakar great right from the start. The centerpiece of the album is the title track "Turning Point", and it's situated in a set of other nice tunes, a number of which have that smoothed-out feel that Tyrone brought to his work in the late 70s. Includes a remake of "Turn Back The Hands Of Time" (done at a nice ballad tempo), plus "It's So Good (To Be Home With You)", "Saving My Love For You", and "I Can't Bump" (parts 1 & 2). CD features a bonus single mix of "It's So Good". CD

New Meat PuppetsOut My Way (with bonus tracks) ... LP
SST/MVD, 1986. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The Meat Puppets in one of their peak periods – less shambling than on their first few trailblazing records, sure – and kind of recasting ragged rock in their defiantly weird image! They're flirting with more the mainstream rock sound here, but it's still too weird and Meat Puppet-y for most people. Kinda boogie-oriented southwestern hard rock, but wild-eyed and frayed in ever-brilliant ways. Includes "She's Hot", "Out My Way", "Other Kinds Of Love", "Not Swimming Ground", "Mountain Line", their insane take on "Good Golly Miss Molly" (a song that's rambunctious in anyone's hands, but you'll need to sit down after the Meat Puppets version) and more. 2013 reissue includes 4 bonus tracks that weren't on the original vinyl release: "I Just Want To Make Love To You", "On The Move", "Everything Is Green".

New Jimmy ScottMoon Glow ... CD
Milestone, 2000/2001. Used ... Out Of Stock
Gentle magic from singer Jimmy Scott – one of our favorite of his comeback recordings of recent years! The album features tracks that Jimmy Recorded over sessions done in 2000 and 2001 – working with a host of great jazz players like Eric Alexander, Joe Beck, Hank Crawford, David Newman, Grady Tate, and Cyrus Chestnut – all of whom bring a warm and mellow feel to the set, allowing Jimmy some good space to breeze around in understated brilliance. Titles include "Yesterday", "Those Who Were", "How Long Has This Been Going On", "Time On My Hands", and "If I Should Lose You". CD

New Johnny Hammond SmithThat Good Feelin' ... CD
New Jazz (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Good feelings and plenty of soul – some very early work as a leader from Hammond hero Johnny Smith! The set's got Johnny using the organ with lots of stops out – that full, wide range of the instrument that initially knocked so many folks for a loop when it first came into jazz – then really took strong formation in the hands of a player like this! The groove's a bit like a Jimmy Smith record for Blue Note, but a lot grittier too – with some occasional elements of R&B mixed in with the more far-reaching jazz sensibilities. The group features Thornel Schwartz on guitar, who'd played famously with Jimmy Smith – plus George Tucker on bass and Leo Stevens on drums. Titles include the originals "Puddin" and "That Good Feelin" – plus "My Funny Valentine", "I'll Remember April", and "Billie's Bounce". CD

The core mix is great enough – a mindblowing 76 minutes of music that steps along with that sweet, soulful, and moogy P&P Records groove – crafted way back in the late 70s by the legendary team of Patrick Adams and Peter Brown!

John ColtraneCosmic Music ... CD
Impulse, 1968. Used ... $7.99
A set that really earns its title – as it's easily some of the most cosmic music John Coltrane ever recorded – and also kind of a way of saying goodbye to the planet, to leave his music in the hands of a next generation of creators! The album features material recorded by a Coltrane group in 1966, and an Alice Coltrane combo in 1968, after Coltrane's death – making it a great link between two moments in the group – especially since Pharoah Sanders plays tenor and Alice Coltrane plays piano on both tracks. The Coltrane tunes – "Manifestation" and "Reverend King" – both have a righteous raw power – and the Alice Coltrane numbers – "The Sun" and "Lord Help Me" – really showcase the slower-building spiritual energy that both she and Pharoah Sanders would carry on in their music. Great stuff throughout – and completely essential! CD

New JJ Doom (Jneiro Jarel & MF Doom)Key To The Kuffs (with download) ... LP
Lex, 2012. Near Mint- 2LP ... $16.99
Janeiro Jarel and MF Doom – united as JJ Doom – and it's one of the fresher Doom collaborative projects of the past couple years! As unique as MF Doom is on the production tip, we gotta say we dig his joint efforts more when he's on the rhymes and another producer is behind the beats. Of course, the reason is that Doom is even more distinct behind the mic than he is when he wears the production mask. JJ's spacey style pilots most of the tracks on Key To The Kuffs, so Doom is free to drop mad rhymes. There's an impressive guest list, too – which includes Beth Gibbons, Damon Albarn, Indigo, Khujo Goodie and others. Titles include "Waterlogged", "Guv'Nor", "Banished", "Bite The Thong", "Dawg Friendly", "Rhymin Slang", "Winter Blues", "Viberian Sun Pt. II", "Wash Your Hands" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Sven LibaekSet ... CD
Philips/Votary (Australia), 1970. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
An Australian sexploitation soundtrack, but one with all the best European elements of the time – thanks to genius work from the continent-hopping Sven Libaek! Sven's got styles here that recall Italian mod, Brit sound library, and dreamy French film scores – including jazzy vocals, slinky instrumentation, bubbling Hammond organ, and even a few bossa nova moments – all wrapped together beautifully in one of the most seductive soundtracks we've ever heard! There's never a dull moment here – and we'd rank this one right up there with Sven's excellent work for underwater adventures and sound library records too – every bit as individual as those, and filled with jazzy goodness. Titles include "Touching Hands", "Love Me", "The Set", "You'll Love It", "The Youngsters", "Partytime At Bronski's", "Start Growing Up Now", and "That's Peg's Affair". CD

Pieces Of A DreamGoodbye Manhattan ... CD
Blue Note/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1995. New Copy ... $8.99
A great return to basics for Pieces Of A Dream – a set that's tightly jazzy, yet still filled with plenty of soul! The style's a great illustration of the smooth jazz roots the group first offered the world – a style that was really coming into its own at the time of this release, but which still sounded better in the hands of Pieces Of A Dream than just about anyone else! Eva Cassidy sings a bit on the record, but there's plenty of instrumentals – many with some very nicely focused tenor lines from Ron Kerber – just joining the group for this release, but already helping them get a new voice. Titles include "Magens Bay", "After Dark", "We're All Alone", "Bassik Instinct", "Lights Out", "Let's Get Smooth", "Club Jazz (Quiet Storm mix)", and "Have A Little Faith". CD

New Ennio MorriconeMorricone 2000 ... CD
Dagored (Italy), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A great compilation of Morricone tracks – and one that includes excellent material that never shows up on other collections of his work! This one pulls tracks from a handful of lesser-known films – most of which are no longer available on CD reissue, and nearly all of which feature some really great moments that are usually lost because the overall soundtracks aren't as good as some of the more famous ones. The handsomely packaged set features work from the films Il Prefetto Di Ferro, Un Bellissimo Novembre, Holocaust 2000, Il Mostro, Il Grande Silenzio, Un Escercito Di 5 Uomini, and Sesso In Confessionale – and tracks include "Veni Sancte Spiritus", "Malinconica Serenita", "Ancora Piu Dolcemente", "Nuddu", "Holocaust", "Passagi Nel Tempo", "Festa All'Ambasciata", "Una Corsa Disperata", and "Barbara E Tagliente". 16 tracks in all – and a nice looking set!

New DictatorsGo Girl Crazy! ... CD
Epic, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Snotty New York rock with more than just an undercurrent of comedy running through the beefy tunes, and a heavy dose of good ol' cockrock swagger! This record by the Dictators is truly, completely punk – even though the groove is closer to a crotch thrusting, garage version of Bad Company than it is to the CBGBs varieties. These are punks in the truest sense – sarcastic a**holes that perfected sneering irony a couple decades before smug indie rockers killed it forever. Handsome Dick Manitoba and the boys run through 9 numbers on this classic debut LP: "The Next Big Thing", "I Got You Babe", "Back To Africa", "Master Race Rock", "Teengenerate", "California Sun", "Two Tub Man", "Weekend" and "(I Live For) Cars & Girls". CD
