New Cal TjaderSolar Heat ... LP
Skye, 1968. Used Gatefold .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Cal Tjader's best albums ever – and a sweetly electric side that features Joao Donato on organ and Gary McFarland on vibes! The record is a brilliant extension of Cal's styles at Verve – a bit of Latin, a bit of jazz, with some easily grooving numbers that have just the right dose of funk! Donato's organ sounds especially great, and there's also some added electric piano and electric harpsichord on the record, which expands the electricity even more – and gives the whole thing a really groovy sound! Loads of great numbers – including "Mambo Sangria", "Fried Bananas", "Solar Heat", "Ode to Billy Joe", and Donato's great "Amazonas". LP, Vinyl record album

New ToomorrowToomorrow ... CD
RCA/Real Gone, 1970. New Copy .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
That's "Toomorrow", not "tomorrow" – a pretty wild sci-fi musical from the start of the 70s – and one that features this very groovy group! The quartet features some vocals by a young Olivia Newton John – but it's the instrumentation here that really sends us – kind of a pop soundtrack presentation of psych modes, which often comes off with a lot more mod easy touches than you might expect! Hugo Montenegro wrote one tune for the record, but the rest of the material still has instrumentation and a feel that's very much in that spirit – almost the kind of rock songs on the Barbarella or Get Carter soundtracks from the same generation. Larger charts inflect the core sounds with some wonderful soundtrack-y elements – and some of the best tunes here are the instrumentals, including one very nice moogy track! Titles include "Toomorrow", "Walkin On Air", "Spaceport", "Let's Move On", "If You Can't Be Hurt", "Goin Back", and "You're My Baby". CD

New Caetano VelosoCaetano Veloso (1967) (180 gram LP with bonus CD) ... LP
Philips/Lilith (Italy), 1967. New Copy LP & CD (reissue).... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the building blocks of the late 60s Tropicalia scene in Brazil – and a standout solo debut from the young Caetano Veloso! The album's got an approach that's as dynamic and trippy as its cover image might imply – the same amazing blend of sounds and styles you'd hear on contemporaneous records by Gal Costa or Os Mutantes – served up with similar wit, wisdom, and charm! Caetano's vocals are amazing throughout – filled with raspy power that goes beyond the barriers of language – and the production has loads of surprising elements tripping through the mix – some rootsy, some slightly orchestrated – but with a softer approach that resonates strongly with more psychedelic use of organ and guitar. The album's as powerful today as it was decades ago – an essential recording that holds up beautifully year after year! The kickoff track is "Tropicalia" (surprisingly enough!), and the album is a non-stop ride through gems like "Alegria, Alegria", "Onde Andaras", "Paisagem Util", "Ave Maria", and the groovy "Soy Loco Por Ti America", written by Gilberto Gil.

New VariousSurinam – Boogie & Disco Funk From The Surinamese Dance Floors 1976 to 1983 ... LP
Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Really rare grooves from an incredibly obscure scene – and that's saying a lot, given how many global sounds have been circulating in recent years! The cuts here represent a unique outpouring of funky club styles from the nation of Surinam – tracks recorded by a handful of groups in the wake of their mid-70s independence – and as filled with as much joy and positive energy as you might imagine from such a political moment! The grooves are surprisingly great – upbeat funk, with lots of jazzy inflections – in a space that's somewhere between the sound of Fantasy Records in the mid 70s, and Capitol soul at the start of the 80s – tight, but never too slick – and as cool as it is classy. Lyrics are in English, and titles include "Sweet Dream" by Alwin Reingoud, "Groovy Weekend" and "Disco Party" by Erwin Bouterse & The Group Roetoe, "Try Try Try" and "You Are Gonna Miss Me" by Solat, "Funkin In Your Mind" and "Going Insane" by Sumy, "Here's To You" by Thunderstorm, and "Waiting For Your Love" by Usje Sukatma.

New Dorothy AshbyJazz Harpist ... LP
Regent, 1956. Used .... Out Of Stock
Jazz harpist Dorothy Ashby has always had one of the most unusual sounds around – and even though it might sound a bit crazy at first, her mix of harp playing with tight jazzy backing is always a winning combination. This early album has Ms Ashby playing with a groovy little combo that includes Frank Wess on flute, Ed Thigpen on drums, and Wendell Marshall on bass. Even at this early age, Dorothy shows her writing skills well with the originals "Aeolian Groove, "Lamentation", and "Spicy" – and she does a nice job with the other standards she chooses to cover. A nice record, with a soulful sound that you wouldn't expect! LP, Vinyl record album
(Green label pressing with deep groove – very nice! Cover has a small split in one corner, but is nice too.)

New EbonysSing About Life ... CD
Buddah/P&C, 1976. Used .... Out Of Stock
The Ebonys sing about life, and a host of other groovy topics too – in this lost soul treasure from the 70s! The set is one of only two albums ever cut by The Ebonys – a consistently great group from the 70s, as is testified by their constant popularity in our racks! The quartet has a 3 man/1 woman harmony sound that's very hip – often applied to righteous themes worked out in a heavy soul mode, and which sounds just as great on the ballads as it does dancefloor numbers. This second album's got an even sharper edge than their debut – thanks to production and arrangements from Tony Camillo – who gives the album some great undercurrents of funk, and a slightly righteous style that reminds us of some of Norman Whitfield's best studio work of the time. Vocals are wonderful – with really great harmonies that balance out beautifully – in ways that are much more unified than other girl/guy soul groups. Titles include "Neighborhood Gossip", "Mr Me, Mrs You", "One Thing On My Mind", "Sing About Life", and "A Love of Your Own". CD

New Bernard EdwardsGlad To Be Here ... CD
Atlantic/Wounded Bird, 1983. Used .... Out Of Stock
Post-Chic work from Bernard Edwards – and a groovy set! The album's got a very different style than Edwards' music with Chic – even though Nile Rodgers plays a fair bit of guitar on the record – and it's wonderful to hear Bernard's different style of music, let loose here on its own! There's a great mellow vibe to the whole thing – smooth-stepping numbers that have a hell of a lot of warmth, and less of the stiffer, colder sounds that were coming into Chic's music at the time. A few cuts have a bit of beats, but most of the instrumentation's pretty organic, almost older-styled soul at points – and titles include "Hard Loving Man", "Glad To Be Here", "Joy Of Life", "Don't Do Me Wrong", and "Your Love Is Good To Me".

New Honey ConeTake Me With You/Sweet Replies/Soulful Tapestry/Love Peace & Soul (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Invictus/Edsel (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2CD .... Out Of Stock
Four albums, plus bonus tracks – a massive collection of work from the lovely Honey Cone trio! First up is Take Me With You – a record that has them taking the girl group sound of 60s Philly, and start to forge it with some of the fuller arrangements that would transform the genre in the disco era. Tony Camillo handled all the arrangements – in a mode that's less clubby than the girls' later work, but still with that Hot Wax groove firmly in place! Titles include "Are You Man Enough", "Take Me With You", "Girls It Ain't Easy", and "Take My Love" – plus a few groovy covers! Next is Sweet Replies – the second album by Honey Cone, and the one that broke them out of the box! The record includes the huge hit "Want Ads" – a pre-disco cut that pointed the way towards future female soul groups of the mid 70s. Other tracks are in a mode that bridges earlier 60s girl group sounds and later 70s disco ones – and titles include "Deaf, Blind, Paralyzed", "Sunday Morning People", "My Mind's On Leaving", "We Belong Together", and "Blessed Be Our Love". On Soulful Tapestry, the trio of Edna Wright, Shellie Clark, and Carolyn Willis are at the height of their 70s powers – soaring forth in a massive trio mode, one that really rewrites the sound of girl group soul for the 70s! There's a bouncy, upbeat groove to the record – kind of a pre-disco approach, but one that's still strongly rooted in the best Detroit soul mode of the Holland-Dozier-Holland team too! Tracks include "One Monkey Don't Stop No Show", "Want Ads", "All the Kings Horses", and "How Does It Feel". Love Peace & Soul is the last Honey Cone album for Hot Wax Records – and a set that's still very much at the top of their game! As with other artists from the Holland-Dozier-Holland stable of hits in the 70s, Honey Cone have a massive amount of force behind their groove – so much so, the record might still be great even if the vocals were nothing special – but fortunately, the trio of Edna Wright, Shellie Clark, and Carolyn Willis bring plenty to the table too – a great sense of individual soul and all-together harmonies! Titles include "Who's Lovin You", "Stay In My Corner", "I Lost My Rainbow", "Ace In The Hole", "Sittin' On a Time Bomb", and "A Woman's Prayer". CD features 7 more bonus tracks too – including "The Truth With Come Out", "Somebody Is Always Messing UP A Good Thing", "Want Ads (unedited)", and "If I Can't Fly". CD

New Andre KostelanetzPlays Michel Legrand's Greatest Hits/Plays Chicago ... CD
Columbia/Vocalion (UK), 1971/1974. Used .... Out Of Stock
An older bandleader takes on sounds from two different groovy sources of the 70s – both of them great! Plays Michel Legrand has Andre Kostelanetz serving up some sweet versions of tunes from some of Legrand's famous soundtracks of the 60s and early 70s – most of them done with fairly broad string arrangements, but underscored with some of the groovier tones and timings that make Michel's music so great. Andre never gets too overemotional, even when things are lush – and titles include "What Are You Doing For The Rest Of Your Life", "Summer Of 42", "Lady Sings The Blues", "Orson's Theme", "Once Upon A Summertime", and "Pieces Of Dreams". Plays Chicago is even weirder, but maybe even cooler too – as Andre Kostelanetz handles the music of Chicago – stripping the tunes of the heavy brass styles you might expect, and instead washing them heavily in strings, which then often get a similar dynamic range to the horns! Arrangements are from Don Sebesky, Torri Zito, Luther Henderson, Marty Manning, and Al Capps – and titles include "Fancy Colours", "Make Me Smile", "Questions 67 & 68", "Beginnings", "25 Or 6 To 4", "Flight 602", and "Wake Up Sunshine".

New Howard RobertsJaunty-Jolly ... CD
Capitol (Japan), 1967. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Jaunty is a pretty darn great way to describe the Howard Roberts sound on Capitol Records – upbeat, grooving, and wonderfully well-rounded – bringing in a bit of funk, a bit of bossa, a bit of groovy, and coming up with a whole new sound in the process! Roberts guitar is wonderfully clean on the set – and sounds perfect alongside organ work from a young Dave Grusin, who's in the group alongside the always-wonderful Emil Richrads – who contributes some nice percussive touches! Titles are all pretty darn groovy – and include versions of "The Face I Love", "A Man & A Woman", "So Nice (Summer Samba)", and "Music To Watch Girls By". CD

New VariousBook A Trip – The Psych Pop Sounds Of Capitol Records ... CD
Capitol/Now Sounds (UK), Late 60s. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Groovy psychedelic pop on Capitol – showing how strangely, yet appealingly pop could stretch out with the resources of Capitol Records at the disposal of groups, producers & arrangers at a fruitful and furiously creative time in pop music! It was a period when David Axelrod, Ken Mansfield and other pioneering production wizards were at Capitol, and the set is filled with rarities – a number of which have never been reissued before, and stuff that could (or should) have made superstars of some of these cats! Great stuff from groups like This Side Up, Tuneful Trolley, The Four Preps, Sidewalk Skipper Band, Moorpark Intersection, Carnival Connection and more. 26 tracks in all: "Book A Trip" by This Side Up", "Lady In Lace" by Stained Glass, "Cynthia At The Garden" by Sidewalk Skipper Band, "Mr Sun" by The Lettermen, "Yours Till Forever" by Griffin, "Don't Take The Night Away" by Pleasure and more.

New VariousGreatest Hits From Outer Space ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/1960s. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
A mad mix of space-age instrumentals, groovy vocal tunes, and lots lots more – and definitely one of the coolest compilations we've ever seen! The cover states that "a galaxy of stars goes where no other compilation has ever gone before" – and we can definitely agree with that claim, given the unique feel of the music, and the wonderful assortment of tracks in the set! The set list draws on many different genres – early rock, offbeat country, easy instrumentals, sound library gems, and lots more – all to bring together a startling array of sounds that's more than enough to send you into outer space on your own. Weird tracks are mixed nicely with tuneful numbers – so that there's a really great sense of discovery as the set rolls on – a vibe that's as well-chosen as some of Ace Records' Halloween compilations, but in a sci fi sort of mode. Titles include "Armstrong" by John Stewart, "Destination Moon" by The Ames Brothers, "Lunar Rhapsody" by Les Baxter, "Happy Blues For John Glenn" by Lightnin Hopkins, "Theme From Star Trek" by Leonard Nimoy, "Everyone's Gone To The Moon" by Bobby Womack, "Doctor Who" by BBC Radiophonic Workshop, "Visa To The Stars" by Jean Jacques Perry & Gershon Kingsley, "Rocket To The Moon" by Moon Mullican, "Forbidden Planet" by David Rose, "Everybody Gets To Go To The Moon" by Themla Houston, and "Footprints On The Moon" by Johnny Harris.

New Laurindo AlmeidaLook Of Love & The Sounds Of Laurindo Almeida ... CD
Capitol (Japan), Late 60s. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
A very groovy album by Laurindo Almeida – one of his best bossa cookers in a swinging 60s mode! The album features lots of great acoustic guitar from Laurindo, but spun over fuller arrangements by Lex De Azvedo, Clare Fischer, and Dick Grove – all of whom get that right sort of jaunty, breezy style to really showcase the evolution of the bossa on the west coast scene of the 60s! Production is great – handled by Lex – and really still lets the gentle acoustic guitar step out in front of the rest of the group – on groovy titles that include "The Look Of Love", "Windy", "I Love You", "When I Look In Your Eyes", "A Beautiful Friendship", and "Alfie".

New AlzoLooking For You/Takin' So Long ... CD
Bell/Beatball (Korea), 1972/1973. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
2 great records from singer/songwriter Alzo – an artist who's probably best known for his late 60s Mercury album as Alzo & Udine, but one who sounds equally great on his own! The first half of CD features the Bell album Alzo – a really unique little record that's soulful, folksy, and with a slight jazzy tinge at times! This solo album has a bit of a different flavor than Alzo's work with Udine, but the singing and instrumentation have a lot of nice jazzy changes – and the whole thing skips along with the same earthy, personal feel that made the earlier album so great. The whole thing's sort of in between Colin Blunstone and Nick Drake, but with a bit more of a soulful vibe – and an ultra-hip mix of styles that makes us wonder why Alzo wasn't hailed as the hippest thing going at the time. Bob (Multiplication Rock) Dorough arranged and produced, with a very groovy style – and tracks include "Country", "That's Alright", "Without You Girl", "Some People", "Lookin' For You", and "You Know Me, I Know You". Takin So Long is a a lost album from Alzo – tracks from sessions that Alzo recorded with arranger/producer Bob Dorough (who cut some of his own great work at the time) – done in an amazing style that blends together soulful vocals, folksy touches, and a sunshiney approach to the material that's really unique! All tracks are originals, and done with a brightly positive spirit that's held up tremendously well over the years – and which is perhaps almost even more compelling as a link between the turbulent times at the end of the 60s, and the troubling era we're faced with in the 21st century. Instrumentation is by a small group that includes Dorough, Jerry Dodgion, and Stuart Scharf – and titles include "Sweet Winds", "Come On Come On", "You Might Never Know", "Wouldn't You Love To Be There", "Can't Play A Part Of Me", "Takin So Long", and "Lead You By The Hand". CD features the bonus track "I Want You To Be A Part Of Me". CD

Dengue Fever not only Escape From Dragon House on this second album – they also escape any knee-jerk attempts to write them off as a novelty group – here delivering a groovy update of the 60s & 70s Cambodian rock vibe! Dengue Fever may be an LA combo, but they do the fun Cambodian garage sound of earlier decades proud – with sweet, girly vocals and a backdrop of keys, horns and global garage, mod, pop and funk rock sounds with one foot in the retro and the other planted on a modern stage. Titles include "We Were Gonna", "Sni Bong", "Tip My Canoe", "Escape From Dragon House", "Made Of Steam", "Saran Wrap", "Hummingbird", "Revenge Of The Tarantula" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

New Volker KriegelWith A Little Help From My Friends (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Liberty/Made In Germany (Germany), 1971. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
A great and groovy early album from Volker Kriegel – the German guitarist who'd cut some very trippy work for the MPS label in the 70s – but a player who steps out here in a sweet soul jazz mode at the end of the 60s! Volker's still got the same wickedly sharp style on guitar you'd know from his later fame – but here, it's turned towards the kind of soulful guitar work you'd hear on Verve Records at the time – somewhere in the territory of George Benson, or maybe a bit in that of Wes Montgomery – but also with some occasional freewheeling moments that hint at the changes to come! The group's a trio on side one – with Peter Trunk on bass and Cees See on drums – but side two moves into wilder material with a quartet that features vibes by Claudio Szenkar, who adds in just the kind of psychedelic touches to really make the music open up! These cuts are much more modal, and show Kriegel's growing love of Eastern sounds – and titles include "Na Na Imboro", "Morandi", "Interpunctuation", "Traffic Jam", and "With A Little Help From My Friends". CD features loads of great bonus tracks – including more with the quartet, and some with Tony Scott and Gustl Mayer – titles that include "Spanish Soul", "Teaming Up", "Na Na Imboro", and "Nina's Dance".

A buzzing, hard-hitting batch of pychedelic rock from Japan's The Mops – featuring some groovy, echoey tunes penned by the group and sung in their native language – plus a nice choice of passionate covers! The sound is a little bit like Love in their early rawness – and the Mops obviously have a great feel for psychedelia at its fuzziest and most tuneful. Great stuff! Tracks include "Asamade Matenai", "San Francisco Nights", "I Am Just A Mops", "The Letter", "Blind Bird", "Somebody To Love", "White Rabbit", "Light My Fire", "Kienai Omoi" and more – plus 2 bonus tracks "Omae No Subete O", "Atsuki Narenai" CD

New Piero PiccioniTemptation/La Figlia Del Capitano ... CD
Kronos (Germany), 1965/1968. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Tempting sounds from the great Piero Piccioni – two late 60s horror scores on a single CD! First up is Temptation – a soundtrack that's got some wonderful organ lines and slow-moving grooves – of the sort that were covered by the Easy Tempo series years back, when we first fell in love with Piccioni's music! There's a slow swell and soft step to the music that's mighty nice – almost a perfect distillation of the Italian bossa influences that made for some of the best film scores of the time! The CD features 13 numbers from the film – all of them great, and the kind of variations on a single groovy theme you might find in Armando Trovajoli's La Matriarca. La Figlia Del Capitano is a bit richer, with more strings in the music, and a few more dramatic spots too – yet overall, the mood nicely fits that of Temptation – with a sense of holding back, then running forward – which suits the music very well. CD features 10 tracks from La Figlia – for a total of 23 in all. CD

Amazing sounds from the groovy Sam Spence – an American composer who worked heavily in Germany during the 60s and 70s, turning out some really cosmic sounds in the process! The cuts here are a wonderful mix of funky sound library grooves and more electronic numbers – a beautiful blend that makes the record come off with a lot more charm than other compilations of this nature – a balance between striking and sensitive moments that's really great! Some of the moogier cuts get very wild – offbeat, spacey, and pretty darn hip – and the straighter grooves offset these nicely by swinging back to more familiar Finders Keepers territory! Titles include "Psycho 2", "Sylvia", "Ice Glaze", "Flying Low", "Electric Texas", "The Searcher", "Frog Spawn", "Water World", "Swamp", "Sunken Ship", "Cosmetic 2", "World As One", "MS 11", "Ringo", and "Industrial Science".

Lion, 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
A pretty incredible compilation of Cambodia Rock – the best one we've come across – classic original Khmer Rock from scene pioneer Sinn Sisamouth and many more! The set as an effort to present this fun, groovy and yes, spectacular Cambodian Rock as it was originally heard by the people in its pre-Pol Pot heyday – before the original vinyl releases were hidden away and eventually circulated via low quality cassette bootlegs – and it sounds great! Awesome stuff all around, much of it with a raw garage psych vibe with fuzzed out guitars, heavy drums, woozy organ and male & female lead vocals – always with a groovy rhythm. Includes "Do You No Wrong Again" by Thra Kha Band, "Khnyom Jah Karake" by Tet Somnang & Meas Samon, "Pros Chang Reiy" and "Pail Loung Rom (Go To Dance)" by Pan Ron, "Jet Snaeh Theang Nov" and "Yuvachon Yuvatey Samai Tmai (New Generation Youth" by Sinn Sisamouth & Ros Dereysothea, "Duang Netra" and "Satt Thee Thuy" by Sinn Sisamouth, "Bong Rau Roub Khnyom" by Ros Sereysothea, "Youm Os Tirk Pnake" by Pov Vannary and more.

Benchmark Bakersfield honky tonk sounds from The Buckaroos – sans Buck Owens – on a couple of classic-level instrumentals sets for Capitol! Led buy guitarist, and when duty calls, fiddle player Don Rich – the band covers the biggest hits they recorded and performed over the years behind leader Buck on The Buck Owens Song Book set – a faithful take on their own electric twang style – in an instrumental setting. The electric guitars serve nicely in place of the lead vocals on the uber-classics "I've Got A Tiger By The The Tail", "Act Naturally", "My Heart Skips A Beat", "Together Again", "I Don't Care (Just As Long As You Love Me)" and more. The Buckaroos take a different approach and show some stylistic range on their covers of fellow Bakersfield veteran Merle Haggard – with some groovy organ, banjo, mandolin and other alternate instrumentation in the mix – on top of their legendary style of electric twang – with some occasional chorus vocals for an even deeper twist. Includes covers of Hag classics "Daddy Frank (The Guitar Man)", "Hungry Eyes", "Swinging Doors", "Mama Tried" and more. Hats off to Omnivore for digging deep and pulling together 2 overlooked albums by one of the greatest backing bands in country music history! CD

The sounds here are more samba than bossa – with guitar and percussion dancing nicely together in the rhythms as group members sing sweetly over the top – and both piano and keyboards adding in some nicely jazzy inflections to the groove, often with the more sophisticated phrasings you might expect in some of the EMI/Odeon work from earlier in the decade. Sivuca joins the group on both accordion and moog (!) – and the whole thing's got a sweetly-grooving style that's totally great! Titles include "Estatutos De Gafiera", "Loteca", "Amor Em Jacuma", " Iboru Iboya", "Beijo Baiano", "O Trem Atrazou", "Asa Branca", and "Fogo Pago". LP, Vinyl record album
Also available Preco De Cada Um (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD 24.99

New Francois De RoubaixComment Les Sedurire/Les Strip Teaseuses/Les Combinards ... CD
Music Box (France), 1964/1965/1967. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Three mad soundtracks from the great Francois DeRoubaix – all penned during his formative years of the 60s! Even at this early point, Francois shows a great ear for bringing up more inventive sounds from his orchestrations – sometimes great jazzy flairs on flute or vibes, sometimes playful tuning of familiar instruments, and sometimes incredibly groovy vocal passages that rival some of our favorite French pop of the period! The whole thing's wonderful – nearly 80 minutes of music that's filled with joy and delight – and plenty of sweet twists and turns along the way – with titles that include "Juke Box De La Drague", "Cover Girl", "Maquettes", "Nos Les Play-Boys", "Peggy", "Le Roi Du Yeye", "La Proposition", "Miracle A L'Italienne", "Brigade Du Twist", "Rendez-Vous Au Ritz", and "Session Jam".

New Maynard FergusonRidin' High ... LP
Enterprise, 1968. Used .... Out Of Stock
A very groovy record by Maynard – with a soulful mid 60s Atlantic Records finish! The album's hipper than most of Ferguson's from the 60s – with a range of arrangers that includes Tom McIntosh, Willie Maiden, Locksley Hampton, and Don Sebesky – all of whom bring Maynard's large group into territory that sounds like some of the more soulful jazz acts on Atlantic at the time. The record features a great cover of "Wack Wack", a slightly funky take on "Sunny", and the original cuts "Light Green", "Satan Speaks", "Molecules", "Meet A Cheetah", and "Kundalini Woman". Very nice! LP, Vinyl record album
(Side 1 has a mark that clicks a bit on track two. Cover has light wear, discoloration due to aging, and a cutout hole.)

New Freedom Sounds featuring Wayne HendersonSoul Sound System ... LP
Atlantic, 1968. Used .... Out Of Stock
The second album by The Freedom Sounds – a very cool west coast soul jazz collective, headed by Wayne Henderson, and featuring a great mix of jazz, soul, and Latin rhythms! This set's a little more ambitious than the group's first album – with a number of tracks that groove in a very strong Latin jazz mode, sounding a lot like some of the best work on Atlantic at the time by Mongo Santamaria, Hubert Laws, and others. Henderson's trombone is still a key solo instrument, but the album also features some incredible sax work from Willie Gresham – a player we know little about, but who makes the album cook in the same fantastic way that Hubert Laws and Sonny Fortune did for Mongo's best work of the 60s! The grooves are very right-on, with plenty of excellent percussion work – and titles include the originals "Love-Out", "Behold The Day", and "Soul Sound System", plus some groovy covers, like "All You Need is Love", "What The World Needs Now Is Love", and "Are You Sure?" – all done with a great Latiny groove! LP, Vinyl record album

New Jimmy HaskellSunset Surf ... CD
EMI (Japan), Late 60s. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
One of LA's best arrangers cooks up a very cool batch of instrumental cuts to honor the surfing crowd – and it totally transcends the genre! It evokes the mood and the style nicely, but it's not run of the mill surf music at all – but more of a 60s LA studio instrumentals celebration with a larger sense of arrangements, and some groovy guitar solos by a young Glen Campbell. Kind of close to a mid-period Beach Boys sense of arrangements-meet-surf sounds, and a nice Capitol sound to it. Titles include "Murphy's Grey Wet Suit", "Quigg Rides Again", "Surfing Baja", "Goofy-Foot Glen, "Come September", "End Of The World", "Easy Surf" and more. CD

New Bruce Johnston & Terry MelcherBest Of Bruce & Terry ... CD
Columbia/Sundazed, Early 60s. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Rare work from the west coast mainstream pop underground of the 60s – that magical musical place where cats who had bigger gigs were able to make some special sounds in between the chart singles – groovy little records that often got lost amidst the shifting sands of time! Two of the biggest talents on that scene of the time were Beach Boy Bruce Johnston and producer Terry Melcher – both of whom worked on much bigger projects, especially in later years, but also cut some cool stuff here together as a duo. The music here is heavy on the harmonies you'd expect from a duo with their experience – but most vocals are duo mode, not quartet or quintet – set amidst some totally sweet hot rod and surf-styled music – produced mostly by Melcher with this cool squished-up studio sound! The set features rare singles, a few unissued numbers, mono cuts, and even some work by the related Rogues – 20 whopping titles that include "Come On Let's Go", "Hawaii", "Summer Means Fun", "Raining In My Heart", "Roger's Reef", "Yeah", "Thank You Baby", "Halfway", "Four Strong Winds", "Look Who's Laughing Now", "Come Love", and "Custom Machine".

New Montego JoeWild & Warm ... LP
Prestige, 1965. Used .... Out Of Stock
An excellent set of groovy Latin-tinged tunes – and one of the rarest records on Prestige from the 60s! The set's one of the few ever recorded under the name of Montego Joe – a great conga player who's probably best remembered for his work with the Har-You Percussion Ensemble, but who sounds equally great here in a hip blend of 60s Latin and soul jazz styles! The group's arranged by Al Gibbons, who also plays tenor on the date – and other musicians are an unusual blend, with avant jazzers Milford Graves and Sonny Morgan on percussion, plus Leonard Goines on trumpet, Art Jenkins on piano, and Ed Thompson on bass. Tracks are short and jazzy, with a lively groove and not a bit of hoke – oddly crafted, with a lot more appreciation for changes in 60s jazz modes than you'd hear on a normal Latin set at the time. Titles include "Same Old Same Old", "Ouch", "No Tears", "Lexington Avenue Line", "Bata Blues", "Ewe", and "Give It Up". LP, Vinyl record album

New TradewindsExcursions ... CD
Kama Sutra/Rev-Ola (UK), 1967. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
A rare full album from The Tradewinds – a wonderful harmony pop group with a Sunshine Pop feel! The Tradewinds have a style that's heavily in a Beach Boys mode – sunny California harmonies on the vocals, and a sort of post-Pet Sounds approach to songwriting – one that makes for some really compelling songs in the set! The group's best known for their "New York's A Lonely Town" hit, but the whole album is great – filled with inventive songs, compelling vocals, and cool arrangements from Jimmy Wisner and Artie Butler – two very groovy talents. Titles include "Mind Excursion", "Bad Misunderstanding", "Only When I'm Dreamin", "Small Town Bring Down", "To Be With You", "Little Susan's Dreamin", and "Huggin In The Hall". CD also features 2 bonus tracks – "That's When Your Heartaches Begin" and "Hard Life". CD

New Ronnie VonRonnie Von (1968) (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Philips/Polysom (Brazil), 1968. New Copy (reissue).... Out Of Stock
Groovy psychedelic rock from Brazil – the self-titled effort from Ronnie Von – a Brazilian television personality and musician who stayed incredibly busy from late 60s through the 70s – but recorded few albums as sublime as this album from 1968! The set's really a near-perfect batch of sunshine rock – sung in Portuguese and featuring some of the similar freeform sounds of his Brazilian contemporaries of the time – with groovy western touches in the instrumentation. Ronnie's vocals are backed up by organ washes and piano, buzzing guitars and walloping drums – but the overall feel is quite melodic – wonderful blend of California sunshine and Brazilian rock grooves! Tracks include "Meu Novo Cantar", "Chega De Tudo", "Espelhos Quebrados", Anarquia", "Esperahca De Cantar", "Contudo, Todavia", "Anarquia", "Mil Novecentos E Alem", and "Canto De Despedida".

New VariousSurinam – Boogie & Disco Funk From The Surinamese Dance Floors 1976 to 1983 ... CD
Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Really rare grooves from an incredibly obscure scene – and that's saying a lot, given how many global sounds have been circulating in recent years! The cuts here represent a unique outpouring of funky club styles from the nation of Surinam – tracks recorded by a handful of groups in the wake of their mid-70s independence – and as filled with as much joy and positive energy as you might imagine from such a political moment! The grooves are surprisingly great – upbeat funk, with lots of jazzy inflections – in a space that's somewhere between the sound of Fantasy Records in the mid 70s, and Capitol soul at the start of the 80s – tight, but never too slick – and as cool as it is classy. Lyrics are in English, and titles include "Sweet Dream" by Alwin Reingoud, "Groovy Weekend" and "Disco Party" by Erwin Bouterse & The Group Roetoe, "Try Try Try" and "You Are Gonna Miss Me" by Solat, "Funkin In Your Mind" and "Going Insane" by Sumy, "Here's To You" by Thunderstorm, and "Waiting For Your Love" by Usje Sukatma.

Michel LegrandEva ... CD
Bella Casa (UK), 1962. New Copy .... $6.99
A fantastic lost soundtrack from Michel Legrand! The score is a lightly jazzy one, done for a film starring Jeanne Moreau and directed by Joseph Losey – and the music's a perfect blend of Legrand's earlier straighter jazz work, with some of his later talent for groovy orchestrations. The overall feel is quite dark – with the kind of jazz-based soundscapes that were showing up in some other French soundtracks at the time, and sweet little noirish feel. Titles include "Water Ski", "At The Bar", "Eva's Room", "Dumped Tivian", "One Morning In Roma", "Eva & Tivian", "The Wedding", and more, plus "Adam & Eve" – which is sung in a vocal version by the great Tony Middleton – and "Loveless Love", sung by "Billy Holiday"!

VariousBasic Principles Of Sound 3 – Music For The Modern Listener With A Brazilian Flavor ... CD
Soundsational (Italy), 1960s/1970s. New Copy .... $14.99
The third volume in this very groovy series takes a distinct Brazilian turn – and opens up into a sparkling set of bossa jammers and hard jazzy numbers that are extremely well-selected for the set! Not all the tracks are Brazilian in origin, but they are all hard to find – and the groove's extremely solid throughout! Tracks include "Quo Vadis Samba" by Goykovic-Novacek, "Carcara" by Tempo Trio, "Tim Dom Dom" by Joao Donato, "Jangal" by Dom Um Romao, "Batucada Sergiu" by Luis Carlos Vinhas, "Grand Nite For Swinging" by Mary Lou Williams, "Consolacao" by Larry Willis, "Influencia Do Jazz" by Bossa Tres, "Mudei De Idea" by Osmar Milito, "Un Sabor Latino" by Ricardo Marrero, "Cobranca" by Carlos Penha, and "Tema Pro Lins" by Rosinha De Valencia.

New VariousSpeto De Rua – Dirty Brasilian Crates Vol 1 – Mixed By Madlib ... CD
Mochilla, 2008. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Mad mischief from Madlib – crafting a killer mix of his trademark blunt funk beatcraft mixed with crates of obscure Brazilian music –- a hot mix for Mochilla! Ever the adventurer, Madlib's mix has a deep, deep eclecticism – with sweet samba, folkloric stuff, jazzier soundscapes hallucinatory psychedelia, and percussion galore. The CD has no tracklist, and it's a single track that rolls for more than an hour – with stylistic detours abound. This is purportedly the first of a 6 volume series, and we're hoping to hear more of it. Groovy stuff that's not as murky and hazy as a lot of Madlib's other recent material – he's clearly inspired by his travels to Brazil and that experience bears fruit for us! CD
