New VariousEpitaph For A Legend ... CD
International Artists/Snapper, Late 60s. New Copy 2CDS ... Out Of Stock
A killer collection of work from the International Artists label – Lelan Rogers' short-lived, but crucially important psychedelic indie! IA is one of those labels that was collectible even when nobody was collecting rare psyche that much – a key company who gave the world some amazing music from The Red Crayola, Roky Erickson, Dave Allen, and others! This compilation's one of the most famous documents of the label – but this new CD version takes things even further – adding in a special book with 40 pages of new notes, including a Jon Savage interview with Rogers, with lots of unusual details on the records. The 2CD set features 27 tracks that include "Splash 1" by Roky & Clementine Hall, "Breakfast In Bed" by Big Walter, "CC Rider" by Dave Allen, "In My Own Time" by The Patterns, "Night Time" by The Chayns, "Hurricane Fighter Plane" by Red Crayola, "If I Were A Carpenter" by The Rubayyat, "A Part Of You" by Thursday's Children, "Wait For My Love" by 13th Floor Elevators, "Communication Breakdown" by Inner Scene, "Vile Vile Grass (Demo)" by The Red Crayola, and "Black Ghost Blues" by Lightnin Hopkins. Also features a short interview with Lightnin Hopkins, and a 13th Floor Elevators radio spot! CD

New Endle St CloudThank You Very Much ... CD
International Artists/Snapper (UK), 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the last, if not the last psychedelic record to appear on the International Artists label at the dawn of the 70s – the wild album from Endel St Cloud – with a snide sense of humor and a groove that ranges from piano rockers to organ riffery and lumbering drum ferocity! It's not as elementally tripped out and cosmic as records by 13th Floor Elevators and others from the IA roster, but it's got plenty of freaked out sinister strangeness. Titles include "Street Corner Preacher", "Who Would You Like To Be Today?", "This Is Love", "Professor Black", "Laughter", "Jessica" and "Like A Badge". This beautifully packaged CD edition has 2 bonus tracks: "Tell Me One More Time (What Is Happening To Our World)" and "Quest For Beauty". It's also in a nice booklike package, with nice notes. CD
(Limited edition of 3000 copies – with 2 bonus tracks and deluxe packaging – kind of like a mini book, with notes, photos, and an additional booklet with info on other International Artists psyche gems of the era.)

New Golden DawnPower Plant ... CD
International Artists/Snapper (UK), 1967. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the grooviest albums on the legendary International Artists label – a set that's as psychedelic and experimental as most of the others in the imprint, but also pretty darn tuneful as well! Golden Dawn have a nicely stretched-out approach to their music – one that lets the songs build up slowly, then really pack a punch as their catchier hooks come into play. There's a bit of a late 60s SF rock quality to the record – especially when the vocals get a bit wild – and the guitars ring out nicely with a great rough-edged sound. Titles include "Starvation", "This Way Please", "Evolution", "My Time", "A Nice Surprise", "Tell Me Why", "Reaching Out To You", and "Seeing Is Believing". CD

Jean CarneCollaborations ... CD
Expansion (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... $16.99
Smooth modern duets from one of our favorite ladies in soul music! Jean Carne's a heck of a singer – with a career that stretches back to early soul jazz recordings with (then) husband Doug Carn, to solo recordings on Philly International in the late 70s, to appearances on records by other artists – sessions from the 70s, 80s, and 90s in which Jean lent her vocals to a wealth of great recordings! This great collection focuses on work in that category – uncollected sides from a three decade period, brought together in one album that shows just how great Jean can sound when she's singing with other artists. Many of these titles are quite hard to find otherwise, and haven't even shown up on other collections of Jean's work – and tracks include "Good Thng Goin On" with Billy Paul, "Holdin On" and "Dreams Of Tomorrow" with Dexter Wansel, "Keep In Touch" and "The Look Of Love" with Grover Washington Jr, "Lean On Me" with Nathan Heathman, "If You Don't Know Me By Now" with The Temptations, "Love Is Beautiful" with Universe, "Star Flower" with Lonnie Liston Smith, "Let's Stay Together" with Bobby M, "I'm Back For More" with Al Johnson, "You Might Be Surprised" with Roy Ayers, "Mother Of The Future" with Norman Connors, and "Valentine Love" with Michael Henderson. Also features the bonus solo track "Trust Me" – never on CD before! CD

Miles Davis & Tadd DameronMiles Davis/Tadd Dameron Quintet In Paris Festival International De Jazz May 1949 ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1949. New Copy ... $13.99
A rare early side of Miles Davis – recorded in postwar Paris in the company of Tadd Dameron! The group's a quintet – with Miles on trumpet and Tadd on piano – and although the overall vibe certainly shows a lot of bop generation spirit, there's also a strong indication of the deeper ideas that were already becoming a part of both artists' music. The group features some excellent work on tenor from James Moody – plus bass from Barney Spieler and drums from Kenny Clarke. Tunes include a fair bit of familiar numbers from the Charlie Parker camp – and titles include "Rifftide", "Good Bait", "Don't Blame Me", "Lady Bird", "Wah Hoo", "Allen's Alley", "Embraceable You", "Ornithology" and "All The Things You Are".

New Paul LaurenceHaven't You Heard (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol/FTG, 1985. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
A nice mid 80s groover from Paul Laurence for Capitol – whose biggest successes, arguably, were in his services as a songwriter and producer for other artists – making a pretty great case for his own work as a headline act on Haven't You Heard! May may not have heard it, actually, but it's well worth checking out. The sound is blueprint 80s synth soul on one level, but the melodies really soar here, and the songs are strong and hit-worthy. Paul's a solid singer, too. You should hear this! Tiles include "Strung Out", "She's Not A Sleaze" (with Freddie Jackson & Lillo Thomas), "You Hooked Me", "I'm Sensitive", "Haven't You Heard" and more. This FTG edition has 4 bonus tracks: "Strung Out (International Version)", "She's Not A Sleaze (Extended Version)", "Strung Out (Extended Dance Mix) and "You Hooked Me (Single Version)". CD

New Michel LegrandThomas Crown Affair (with bonus tracks) ... CD
United Artists/Quartet (Spain), 1968. New Copy ... $22.99
One of the greatest soundtracks of the 60s – and a crowning moment of international fame for French composer Michel Legrand! Legrand already had plenty of records under his belt by the time he scored this great film – a heist movie with Steve McQueen and Faye Dunaway – and he brings all that experience to bear in his music here – with sounds that run from jazzy groovers to bossa instrumentals to a few vocal numbers that are completely sublime, and which show his music works equally well in English as it does in French! Noel Harrison sings the landmark "Windmills Of Your Mind", and Legrand himself sings on the killer "His Eyes Her Eyes" – both of which get instrumental versions as well – and other instrumental tracks include "The Chess Game", "Playing The Field", "The Boston Wrangler", "Doubting Thomas", "The Crowning Touch", and "Room Service". Plus, this CD features loads of unheard bonus tracks – and includes not just the 13 track album, but also 19 more titles from the original film score! CD

Linda MartellColor Me Country ... CD
Plantation/Real Gone, 1970. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
The one and only album from Linda Martell – one of the first African-American women to dip into the genre of country music! The album's got a pretty straight country feel overall – none of the country soul you might hear from deep soul singers of the time – or those later modes that artists like Millie Jackson picked up in the 70s. But the set was also recorded as part of the SSS International family of labels headed by Shelby Singleton – who also cut a fair bit of soul music at the time – often blending modes, musicians, and songs on the Nashville scene of the time. The best example of that approach here is Linda's excellent remake of "Color Him Father" – first made famous by The Winstons – done as a sweet-stepping number with a very different feel than the original. Other tracks include "The Wedding Cake", "Before The Next Teardrop Falls", "Old Letter Song", and "Tender Leaves Of Love". CD

New Ennio MorriconeEnnio Morricone – The Complete Edition (15CD set) ... CD
GDM (Italy), 1960s/1970s/1980s/1990s/2000s. New Copy 15 CDS ... $59.99
An incredible amount of classic and obscure film music, original compositions, orchestral arrangements and more from maestro Ennio Morricone – a 15CD retrospective, and at a stunningly affordable price – selected by the man himself! We wouldn't assume that the set is literally the complete Morricone, he's been so productive, it's hard to imagine that a true complete Morricone box set is possible, but it's absolutely the most encompassing set we've ever seen for him! Of course he's most famous for his international film score work, from cult horror to classic Hollywood – so 9 of the 15 discs are film themes and score material, selected by Morricone and sequenced chronology on discs 1-9, selections including the themes or other bits from Il Buono, Il Brutto, Il Cattivo, Escalation, Galileo, Gli Intoccabili, Slalom, Svegliati E Uccidi, Metti Una Sera A Cena, Veruschka, La Donna Della Domenica, Copkiller, Malena, and so much more! Discs 10 & 11 cover his best work for television, disc 12 is a set of Ennio's contemporary classical compositions, disc 13 features favorite original songs he composed for a wide range of international artists, disc 14 includes favorite orchestral arrangements, and disc 15 features arrangements he did for hit songs by artists such as Gino Paoli, Donatella Moretti, Paul Anka, Jimmy Fontana and others.

Soul Tay Shus, Mid 60s-Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99
An essential look at the mid-to-late 60s soul and R&B music coming from the family of labels headed by Bob Robin – wonderful New Orleans, Baton Rouge and Muscle Shoals recordings released on the International City, River City and Rai imprints by George & Lee, Carolyn Porter, Senator Jones, Gerri Hall, Chick Carbo, Tommy Ridgley, Robert Parker, Wayman Dixon, Bobby Marchan, Lee Tillman and George Perkins! The set's remarkable for a few reasons. For one, it pulls together stellar period southern R&B that could have gotten over big anywhere in the country if the word got out of area – wonderful stuff with a homebase of New Orleans, but not so much in a precise Crescent City mold. It also features artists we don't see compiled very often, if at all, which is also exciting. Lastly, it's simply great stuff that deserves an audience, then and now! 40 tracks on 2CDs, a number of which were previously unreleased: "Nobody But You", by George & Lee, "Country Soul" by Senator Jones, "My Love Gets Stronger" by Tommy Ridgely, "I Cried A Tear" by Gerri Hall",, "When The Wind Blows In Chicago" by Chick Carbo, "The Man I'm Looking For" by Carolyn Porter, "My Broken Heart" by Wayman Dixon, "Better World" by Lee Tillman, "Wash Mama Wash" by Robert Parker, "Any Way You Want It" by Bobby Marchan and more.

Strut (UK), Late 80s/1990s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $15.99 16.99
A massive overview of one of the longest-running house labels from Chicago – the crucial Dance Mania imprint, second only to Trax and DJ International for its huge run of talent! Dance Mania came into being a few years into the first wave of Chicago house, but also kept its dedication to the underground for a lot longer, too – and really helped a tremendous amount of young artists to hit the studio and get their chance at turning out a groove! The label was housed in the upstairs of Barney's Records – an important west side record store and one-stop – and it dedicated itself to tracks that were maybe a bit faster, simpler, and more direct than some of the other house in Chicago at the time – often with a great style of stripping things down to all their best elements, yet still keeping things warm and soulful overall. The package features great notes on the label – and on the great Ray Barney himself (we miss your store, Ray!) – and titles include "7 Ways (club)" by Hercules, "Crazy Wild" by Club Style, "Love Will Find A Way (club)" by Victor Romeo, "Toxic Waste (club)" by Tim Harper, "I'm So Deep" by Vincent Floyd, "Falling (Armando's house mix)" by 326, "Da Bomb" by DJ Deeon, "Ghetto Shout Out" by Parris Mitchell, "Hit It From The Back" by Traxmen & Eric Martin, "The Original Video Clash – Video Class 2 (street mix)" by DJ Funk, "Feel My MF Bass" by Paul Johnson, and "Work Out" by Top Cat. 2CD set features 24 tracks in all!

VariousSpirit Of Philadelphia ... CD
Expansion (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... $10.99
Simply the best Philly 70s collection we've heard – ever! This one goes way past the hits, and moves into work from a variety of labels – not just the famous tunes on Philly International, but all of the Philly-produced gems that were coming out from other sources and other singers during the 1970s – a decade when the Philly sound had a golden touch that could transform the work of any singer into pure genius! The tracks on the set are really well thought-out – a sampling of work from a variety of different artists that you might not think to associate with the Philly groove at first glance, plus others who had their only really truly strong success through a brief link with the City of Brotherly Love. 18 tunes in all – and all of them warm clubby grooves with a perfectly smooth feel! Titles include "Look On The Good Side" by The Invitations, "Make It Last" by Barbara Mason & The Futures, "Good For The Gander" by Jermaine Jackson, "Stay With Me" by The Futures, "Who Loves You" by The Joneses, "I Just Can't Say Goodbye" by Touch Of Class, "Hurt So Bad" by The Philly Devotions, "Will You Be Mine" by The Whispers, "Now OR Never" by Little Dooley, "One More Time" by Dianne Steinberg, "Where It's Warm" by Revelation, and "A Little Bit Or Love" by Charen Cotton.

VariousSpirit Of Philadelphia 2 ... CD
Expansion (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... $10.99
A tremendous follow up to the first Spirit Of Philadelphia collection – released many years after that seminal set, and with an even farther-reaching selection of music! The first Spirit set focused on the best mellow and midtempo soul efforts of the Philly International label – but this one expands the groove even more to show the wide influence that Gamble & Huff had on the sound of Philly soul on other labels – especially the major labels, who'd begun following the indie lead in their productions by the mid 70s. There's a fair bit of work here by bigger names at the time, but all of it's got a stone Philly sound – and is either work by artists who first sprung out of the Philly scene directly, or others from different points around the country, and who'd made a trip to Philly in the 70s to record in a hipper groove! Titles include "Do You Remember Yesterday" by New York City, "Falling In Love With You" by Jimmy Ruffin, "It's Not What You Got" by Eddie Kendricks, "We Got Love" by Ben E King, "Don't Take Your Love" by The Whispers, "Can't Accept The Fact" by Gateway, "Straighten It Out" by Anglo-Saxon Brown, "Midnight Lady" by David Morris, "You Make Me Feel So Good Baby" by The Temprees, "It's Love" by The Persuaders, "In Love Again" by The Joneses, "Let's Go All The Way Down" by Brenda & The Tabulations, "Walk Away From Love" by Jackie Moore, "I Don't Have Time To Worry" by Little Anthony & The Imperials, and "That's What Love Does" by Vince Montana & The Philly Sound Orchestra.

New JazzanovaIn Between ... CD
Compost/Ropeadope, 2002. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first-ever full length album from Jazzanova – and an instant classic that's been well worth the wait! For years, the group have turned out some of the most exciting singles and remixes on the international groove scene – and during all that time, they've been secretly storing away new ideas and musical thoughts for this groundbreaking debut album. The set's completely mindblowing – head and shoulders above anything else they've ever done, with a wealth of ideas and styles that we never thought them capable of. Working with a host of guest artists that include Vikter Duplaix, Capital A, Ursula Rucker, Rob Gallagher, Valerie Etienne, Dave Friedman, Doug Hammond, and others, they move far past their simple role as remix producers, and express a bold new vision – a 21st Century blend of jazz, soul, beats, and life that's impossibly hard to describe in a few short sentences. A stunner from the get-go – and shoulder-to-shoulder filled with great tracks! Titles include "No Use", "LOVE & You & I", "Fade Out", "Hanazono", "Mwela Mwela", "Keep Falling", "Cyclic", "Another New Day", "Place In Between", "Soon", "Sub Atlantic", "Glow & Glare", "Takes You Back (dub)", and "Wasted Time".

New Wilson PickettWilson Pickett In Philadelphia ... LP
Atlantic, 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The Wicked Pickett takes his groove up to Philly – and comes up with a whole new sound in the process – a raw new style for the 70s, and one that's almost even more compelling than his Muscle Shoals groove! The album was recorded at the early Sigma Sound studios in Philly – and features arrangements from Bobby Martin, Lenny Pakula, and Roland Chambers – all artists who really help bring in a northern vibe to Pickett's music, yet still let those amazingly raw vocals do their thing! In a way, it's this mix of raw and smooth that almost sets the scene for Philly International gems to come a few years later – especially since a lot of the tunes are penned by Gamble & Huff – and instrumentation is provided by Thom Bell on organ, Norman Harris and Bobby Eli on guitars, Ronnie Baker on bass, Earl Young on drums, and Vince Montana on vibes and percussion. Titles include "Days Go By", "Run Joey Run", "Help The Needy", "Don't Let The Green Grass Fool You", "Ain't No Doubt About It", "Come Right Here", and the classic 2-part track "Get Me Back On Time, Engine Number 9".

New VariousDouble Shot Of Soul – Funky Los Angeles Soul From The Vaults Of The Double Shot & Whiz Labels 1967 – 70 ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Lost soul from a massively overlooked source – the mighty LA indie Double Shot Records, best known for their fuzzy rock classics, but also a hotbed of tripped-out soul! Given that Double Shot's 2 biggest artists of the late 60s were Count Five ("Psychotic Reaction") and Brenton Wood ("Oogum Boogum Song"), you can imagine that the label would be equally well suited to handle mod 60s guitars and sweet soul vocals – and on most of the tracks on this set, you'll be hearing them at the same time! The set's a really massive batch of tunes – a wonderful discovery to our ears, as we'd only ever heard the odd rare single on the label, and had no idea that there was so much great work – nor that it would sound so great! The CD features a total of 26 tracks in all, pulled from the Double Shot singles of the late 60s – with tracks that include "Push Me Baby" and "Jelly" by The Bagdads, "What Is Soul" and "The International Love Song" by The Real Thing, "Four Piece Funky Nitty Gritty Junky Band" and "Everybody's Got A Hang Up" by Bobby Freeman, "Gotta Keep Talkin" and "Coming In Out Of The Rain" by Maurice Rodgers, "The Neck" and "Trouble" by Kent & The Candidates, "Sugar Sugar" by Shirley, and "Trouble" by Foxy.

Do Right (Canada), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A much-needed look at a scene that's hardly ever gotten its due – and a wealth of beautiful jazz tracks from our brothers to the north! Canada's always done a better job of supporting its artists with national assistance than the US – so it's no surprise that some of the best jazz recordings of the Canadian scene come from the archives of it's state-owned broadcasting company – a key force in supporting great music of all types, but especially important here when it comes to jazz! The work on the set is all hand-picked by John Kong – of both the Do Right label, and the international groove underground – and it's all chosen with an ear towards the kind of older jazz tracks that are playing big on the international scene these days. Think of the inspiration for Schema, or the jazz tracks selected by Gilles Peterson, and you'll have a great idea of the grooves on this set! Titles include "Star Of India" by Electric Ninja Group, "Saphir" by Nick Ayoub, "Ready Or Not" by Kathryn Moses, "Lawrence Of Arabia" by Fred Stone, "Voices" by Al Michalek Quartet, "Consuelo" by Pierre Nadeau Trio, "The Family" by Billy Robinson, and "Soya" by Pierre Leduc.

The collection is a stunning celebration of the use of silence in records – and features selections by artists from a surprisingly wide range of styles – all of whom create pieces of silence to use alongside more sonically stimulating material – often with some sort of social comment in the practice! Yet despite the lack of any sound at all, the record is faithfully banded to show the duration of each number – and an extended listen produces a John Cage-like contemplation of nothingness that's surprisingly compelling – especially when it comes in a package as attractive as this. Titles include "Silence" by Robert Wyatt, "There's A Riot Going On" by Sly & The Family Stone, "Nutopian International Anthem" by John Lennon, "The Sound Of Free Speech" by Crass, "Silence" by Ciccone Youth, "Disco Party (part 2)" by Son Of Pete, "Silence (Copyright 1932)" by Andy Warhol, "Anniversary Of World War III" by West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band, "9-11-01" by Soulfly, and "The Ballad Of Richard Nixon" by John Denver.

New Ivan LinsIntimo ... CD
Som Livre (Brazil), 2010. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Ivan Lins is working here with a help from a host of international artists – no surprise, considering the influence he's had on music around the world over the past few decades! At its core, the set's got the spirit of all of Lins' best recent work, with that warmer, jazzier vibe he's picked up lately – and some key cuts further bring out this aspect with instrumental solos from players who include Till Bronner on trumpet, Antonio Serrano on harmonica, Leonardo Amuedo on guitar, and Frits Landesbergen on vibes! There's also a bit of guest vocals on just a few tracks – from Take 6, Jane Monheit, Trintje Oosterhuis, and Abaqondisi Brothers – and titles include "Sou Eu", "Tanto Amor", "Meu Espelho/Crystal Clear", "Tchau Tristeza", "Maos De Fada", "No Tomorrow/Acaso", and "Dandara".

New VariousSpirit Of Philadelphia 2 ... CD
Expansion (UK), 1970s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A tremendous follow up to the first Spirit Of Philadelphia collection – released many years after that seminal set, and with an even farther-reaching selection of music! The first Spirit set focused on the best mellow and midtempo soul efforts of the Philly International label – but this one expands the groove even more to show the wide influence that Gamble & Huff had on the sound of Philly soul on other labels – especially the major labels, who'd begun following the indie lead in their productions by the mid 70s. There's a fair bit of work here by bigger names at the time, but all of it's got a stone Philly sound – and is either work by artists who first sprung out of the Philly scene directly, or others from different points around the country, and who'd made a trip to Philly in the 70s to record in a hipper groove! Titles include "Do You Remember Yesterday" by New York City, "Falling In Love With You" by Jimmy Ruffin, "It's Not What You Got" by Eddie Kendricks, "We Got Love" by Ben E King, "Don't Take Your Love" by The Whispers, "Can't Accept The Fact" by Gateway, "Straighten It Out" by Anglo-Saxon Brown, "Midnight Lady" by David Morris, "You Make Me Feel So Good Baby" by The Temprees, "It's Love" by The Persuaders, "In Love Again" by The Joneses, "Let's Go All The Way Down" by Brenda & The Tabulations, "Walk Away From Love" by Jackie Moore, "I Don't Have Time To Worry" by Little Anthony & The Imperials, and "That's What Love Does" by Vince Montana & The Philly Sound Orchestra.
