New David WeissEndangered Species – The Music Of Wayne Shorter Live ... CD
Motema, 2013. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful tribute to the compositional genius of Wayne Shorter – but served up at a level that goes way beyond Shorter's original vision for his music! Trumpeter David Weiss always does a great job of re-exploring the best modern sounds of the 60s – and here, he arranges some key Shorter tunes for a largeish ensemble – a great group that features his own horn in the lead, plus alto from Tim Green, tenor and soprano from Marcus Strickland, tenor from Ravi Coltrane, trumpet from Jeremy Pelt, trombone from Steve Davis, and piano from Geri Allen! Other players in the lineup are great, too – and the set's got this really rich feel – unlocking all the colors and emotions of the compositions with the ensemble, yet still allowing plenty of room for a solo voice too. Titles include "Eva", "Mr Jin", "Fall", "Nellie Bly", and "Prometheus Unbound" – plus David's own "The Turning Gate". CD

Antonio AdolfoFeito Em Casa (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Artezanal/Polysom (Brazil), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $38.99
A sweet set of 70s fusion tracks from Brazilian keyboardist Antonio Adolfo! Adolfo's probably best known for his mad work for EMI/Odeon at the start of the 70s, but by this point in the decade, he'd mellowed out a bit, and was focusing on more serious jazz-based recordings – most of which were issued only briefly on the tiny label Artezanal. This rare session features Adolfo on moog, Hammond, and Arp – working with a group that includes Marcio Montarroyos on trumpet, Danilo Caymmi on flute, and some guest vocals by Joyce on one track! The overall sound is electric, but not cloyingly so – a mix of breezy, jazzy, and funky styles that really fit together superbly. Titles include "Chickote", "Venice", "Acalanto", "Feito Em Casa", "Ve", "Virry", "Variacoes", "Beijinho", "Dia De Paz", and "As Luzes Estao Brilhando". LP, Vinyl record album

Bee GeesMorning Of My Life – The Best Of The Bee Gees 1965/1966 ... CD
Warner (Australia), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $11.99
Wonderful lost work from The Bee Gees – some surprisingly wonderful Australian recordings, made in the few years before their American debut! The vocal strengths of the group are already firmly in place – those amazing harmonies with a quality that's unlike any other act we can think of – rising together on these beautiful little tunes that have a simplicity that's really a nice contrast to later years – which lets us focus on the vocals even more! Some moments are nice and raw, too – with sharper guitars and tighter drums that almost echo the coming psych and garage sounds of the US – but mixed with the trio's voices in this really great way. If you've only ever heard early Bee Gees on Atco, you'll find a heck of a lot to love here – on a set of 24 tracks that includes "The Storm", "Spicks & Specks", "I Am The World", "I Want Home", "Butterfly", "Jingle Jangle", "Playdown", "Second Hand People", "And The Children Laughing", "Wine & Women", "Coalman", "How Many Birds", and "Top Hat".

Alaide CostaAfinal (remastered edition) ... CD
RGE/Som Livre (Brazil), 1963. Used ... $9.99
Sad and dreamy early 60s work by Alaide Costa – one of the early divas of bossa nova! The album's one of Alaide's most solid from the time – and features backing either by a small combo led by Cesar Camargo, or by a larger group led by Maestro Lindolfo Gaya, the force behind more great Brazilian vocal sessions than we could ever hope to name! Alaide's voice is wonderful – kind of in a compressed emotional mode that's a striking contrast from some of her more overblown contemporaries – and it works well next to the lightly jazzy backings of the album. Titles include "Afinal", "E Agora?", "Igrejinha", "Ouvi Tua Voz", "Estorinha", "Como E Gosto De Voce", and "Manha Chegou". CD

New Jerry GoldsmithPlanet Of The Apes – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Project 3, 1968. Very Good- Gatefold ... $24.99
The hard-to-find soundtrack for the first Planet Of The Apes film! The record has a nice mix of dramatic orchestral scoring with some other tracks that have a cool jingly jangly noisy sound. Jerry Goldsmith did some great work for this one, and the album has a cool gatefold cover with images from the film, plus "commentary" by Charleton Heston (gun-loving bastard!) Titles include "The Clothes Snatchers", "The Cave", "A New Mate", "No Escape", and "The Revelation". LP, Vinyl record album

Barry GrayStand By For Adverts – Rare Jingles, Jazz & Advertising Electronics ... CD
Trunk (UK), Late 50s/1960s. Used ... $12.99
A totally cool little record – like taking a TV time machine into the past – and stopping off in 60s London on the way! Barry Gray's a name best known for his famous soundtracks – including the music to Thunderbirds – but he's also scored plenty of commercials over the years too – often with the kind of weird, wild, and wonderful sounds used in his other recordings! The package is a great revelation – a whopping selection of over 80 short little numbers – music and songs for companies as diverse as Shell gasoline, Herald Cinema, Quaker Banana Mellows, Ridgeways Country House, Leeside Cakes, and many others – often with a short introduction from Gray, and some cool sound effects too. The Mike Sammes Singers provide vocals on some cuts – and the package is even groovier than usual for Trunk Records – and that's saying a lot! CD

Dick NoelMy Serious Sides ... LP
Dink, 1978. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Great later work from Dick Noel – a singer who scored big early in his career while working for the Ray Anthony band, but then disappeared into a quiet life of singing radio jingles while living in Chicago! This album's something of a comeback for Dick – his first jazz record in many years, done in quiet collaboration with pianist Larry Novak – who provides the only other instrumentation on the set. The mixture of vocals and piano is handled wonderfully in the production – spare and spacious enough to let Noel's maturing vocals find just the right approach on this batch of well-chosen tunes. There's a slightly boozy, very late nite feel to the record – and titles include "Why Did I Choose You", "My Own Space", "Emily", "A Time For Love", "Send In The Clowns", and "Here's That Rainy Day".

Sandra RhodesWhere's Your Love Been (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Fantasy/Omnivore, 1973. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
A nice little album from Sandra Rhodes – an artist who sung backup vocals on more than a few southern soul sides in her day – emerging here on her own in a style that's part country, part rock, and plenty touched by the Memphis soul scene from which she emerged! The album's produced and arranged by Charles Chalmers, and it's got a flanged-out, laidback sound that makes it a bit hipper than you'd expect – almost Memphis meets LA, with a quality that really takes the music past its Tennessee roots, but also without losing them as well. Titles include "Sho Is Rainin", "It's Up To You", "Sowed Love & Reaped The Heartache", "Where's Your Love Been", "No Such Thing As Love", and "Never Grow Old". CD features 7 previously-unreleased bonus tracks from the same sessions – including "Jingo", "I Don't Play The Game", "Linda Was A Lady", "Baby Don't Go", "I'd Rather Hurt You Now", and "Someday Sweet Baby".

New SantanaSantana (1969) ... LP
Columbia, 1969. Very Good+ ... $5.99
Ok, so you were once embarrassed to have this in your collection – and sold it off so your buddies at college wouldn't make fun of you. Now, though, you treasure it as a crossover Latin Funk classic – with the kind of soaring guitar/organ grooves that were the brilliant sound of the 70s for the West Coast scene, a whole new way of playing Latin Soul that blew away the New York sound of the late 70s. Titles include "Persuasion", "Evil Ways", "Savor", "Jingo", "Soul Sacrifice", and "Shades of Time". LP, Vinyl record album

Shel SilversteinBoy Named Sue & His Other Country Songs ... CD
RCA/Water, 1969. Used ... $4.99
One of the weirdest records ever from Shel Silverstein – and that's saying a heck of a lot, given what a weirdo he is! The set was recorded hot on the heels of the big Johnny Cash recording of "Boy Named Sue" – and it features Shel singing that famous tune, plus a host of other original country material – all of which is quite different than the usual songs coming from Nashville in the 60s! Production was done by Chet Atkins – who must have flipped a wig recording this one – and Shel's raspy, nasally voice is surprisingly at home in the professional Nashville backings. The record's a great leftfield country relic from the 60s – and titles include "Boy Named Sue", "Dirty Ol Me", "Alimoney", "Someday's Here", "Time", "Comin After Jinny", and "Daylight Dreamer". CD

StetsasonicIn Full Gear ... LP
Tommy Boy, 1988. Very Good ... $0.99
The second Stet LP, with the group repping BK in fine style. There's a fair share of Prince Paul niceness here, and Daddy-O's beats are no slouch either, in case the matching sweatsuits aren't enough to get you open. In the time of rappers cobbling together LPs with mix and match producers, it's nice to look back on groups like Stets that did it all, rhyming, DJing, beatboxing. . . Includes the classic title track, "Talkin' All That Jazz", "Float On", "Sally", "This Is It Y'all (Go Stetsa II)", "Miami Bass", "Pen & Paper", "Miami Bass" and "Music For The Stetfully Insane".

Dexter StorySeasons ... CD
Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 2012. Used ... $9.99
A beautiful project from the contemporary underground scene in LA – a record that shares lots of energy and musicians with recordings by Build An Ark and Life Force Trio! Dexter Story's the main force behind the record, but the set's a strongly collaborative effort – and features keyboards from Mark De Clive-Lowe, flute from Derf Reklaw, strings from Mighel Atwood-Ferguson, vocals from Dwight Trible, and key studio work from Carlos Nino! Story's vocals and overall conception are wonderful – soaring and soulful, with some slight cosmic touches that give the record a bit more crackle than related projects – a sound that's still steeped in spiritual jazz elements, yet which also really opens up as the set rolls on. There's a wonderful sense of variety to the tracks – due to the shifting lineup – but the overall feel is still very cohesive, and an amazing demonstration of Story's bold musical vision. Titles include "Seasons", "Into The Hour", "Love Force Trio (part 1)", "Underway", "Water Bearer", "Paddle Boat", "Bloop Drip", "Gyre Song", "As Is", "God Sun", and "Suijin". CD

East West, 1995. Near Mint- ... $2.99
Back in 1995, Supernatural could be heard on loads of mixtapes and freestyle tapes and was all set to be the next underground hip hop sensation. We don't know exactly what happened, but these two are good examples of what people were waiting for. "Buddha Blessed It" is his ode to the hydroponic with "Mind Tricks" on the b-side. Produced by Djinji Brown and KRS-One. Part of the batch of artists that East West and Elektra were getting set to do something with, but never came to fruition in the 90s. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Dual Planet (Australia), Early 80s. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99 24.98
A very cool set from sound library enigma Teisco – and one that's a lot more tune-based than some of his other work! The vibe here is very much in an early 80s electro mode – lots of processed guitar over drum machine rhythms, often with this wobbly vibrating sound that's pretty darn cool – spooky at the same time that it's catchy, with a quality that almost feels like some of the more experimental Factory Records groups trying to come up with jingles for TV commercials – but in a really weird way! Titles include "Zompalompax", "Atmosfera Neutra", "Artico", "Mutazione", "Plane Beta", "I Foletti", and "Suffritticosa". LP, Vinyl record album

Three SoundsBottoms Up! ... LP
Blue Note, 1959. Good+ ... $29.99
The bottom is certainly "up" on this one – as the Three Sounds groove things from the ground up, taking soul jazz piano to the next level with an approach that quickly made them one of the most popular Blue Note acts of the early 60s! Gene Harris leads the group on piano – and also plays celeste on one track (!) – and the other Sounds at this point are Andrew Simpkins on bass and Bill Dowdy on drums – a really great rhythm section that have a way of being soulfully quiet, with a very subtle groove – one that's much more understated than you might find in the Ramsey Lewis trio, but equally hip. Tracks include "Jinne Lou", "Besame Mucho", "Love Walked In", "Angel Eyes", "Falling In Love With Love", and "Time After Time". LP, Vinyl record album

New Piero UmilianiTra Scienza E Fantascienza ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1976. New Copy ... $18.99
A wonderful sound library set from the great Piero Umiliani – and a record that's filled with some of his coolest electronics ever! The feel of the record is very much in keeping with the image on the cover – kind of sci fi, but kind of playful too – a wonderful blend of keyboards and moogy bits, often played with a cool little groove – but one that's laidback enough to recall Umiliani's best soundtrack music! Tunes are relatively short – between one and four minutes in length – but really have a great sense of variety and imagination – at a level that goes way beyond some of the overdone repetition you might find in other albums of this nature. Really great all the way through – with cuts that include "Futuristic Jam", "Killer Robot", "Soft Key", "Bric Brac", "Soundmaker Blues", "Gadget", "Danza Galattica", and "Jingle No 1". CD

Tom ZeReturn Of Tom Ze – Hips Of Tradition – Brazil Classics 5 (with download) ... LP
Luaka Bop, 1992. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $18.99 19.98
A great return for the legendary Tom Ze – an artist who'd been brought back to prominence via the efforts of a Luaka Bop compilation – then given this great chance to record for the label on his own! The set's a great return to form for Ze – who sprung from this moment into a renewed period of creative energy – really drawing on his crucial years of groundbreaking sounds in Brazil during the Tropicalia generation, and especially the 70s – when Tom had really moved off into a realm of his own. Most tracks are relatively short, and pretty enigmatic – a flurry of the sounds and verbal experiments that always made Ze so great! Titles include "Jingle Do Disco", "Cortina 3", "Amar", "Ogodo, Ano 2000", "Feira De Santana", "Fliperama", and "Tatuaramba". LP, Vinyl record album

Sublime Frequencies, 1970s. New Copy ... $15.99
A great dip into the sounds of Algeria in the 70s – surprisingly great music, and surprisingly sophisticated at times too – with a vibe that often matches the best Turkish or Iranian records from the time! Most numbers here are from smaller 45s and EP release – and are hardly the rock or pop going down in the Anglo world of the time – as the themes, structures, and instrumentation are often pretty far-reaching – a really creative blend of ancient and modern instrumentation, often used with exotic tones alongside straighter, catchy passages. The set features detailed notes and images of vintage records – and titles include "Wahdi" by Kri Kri, "Habit En Itch" by Rachid & Fethi, "Nesthel" by Les Djinns, "Silence Des Cenres" by Ahmed Malek, "N'Sani N'Sani" by Smail Chaoui, and "Chenagh Le Blues" by Abranis.

Salsoul/Ultra, Late 70s/2013. New Copy Gatefold ... $13.99 14.98
The title borrows a slogan from the late 70s disco years at Salsoul Records – but the groove here is 21st Century all the way – thanks to a host of very contemporary-styled mixes that take older classics from the label, and infuse them with a modern dancefloor groove! Even back in the day, Salsoul had a great ear for key club talents who could expand on their strong blueprints for disco grooves – and here, they re-show that same strength, but in a completely different way! Titles include "I Got My Mind Made Up (DJ Dan rmx)" by Instant Funk, "Jingo (Federico Scavo rmx)" by Candido, "Doctor Love (White Noize rmx)" by First Choice, "Love Break (Stephane Luke rmx)" by Salsoul Orchestra, "I Never Knew" by Jessie Andrews, "Find Somebody (J Paul Ghetto rmx)" by Inner Life, "Hit & Run (Joe T Vannelli diva rmx)" by Loleatta Holloway, and "By The Way You Dance (Julien Jabre rmx)" by Bunny Sigler.

Luaka Bop/Stones Throw, Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $22.99 23.98
A really mind-bending collection of African grooves – one that digs deep into the West African scene of the early 70s – and comes up with a massive batch of tunes that really opens up our understanding of the music! The sound here isn't just 70s Afro Funk – as the tunes include a range of tripped-out styles that make the best use of electric instrumentation, psychedelic production, and important influences from American soul artists at the time. There's some amazing guitar on some of the best tracks – ringing out with a sound that's chromatically complex while also being tripped-out and funky – in a way that complicates the rhythms without totally taking them apart. If you've dug the tunes on previous sets like Africa Funk or Ghana Soundz, this is one to take that sound to the next level – and really open up your ears! Titles include "Keleya" by Moussa Doumbia, "Love's A Real Thing" by The Super Eagles, "Minsato Le Mi Dyihome" by Orchestre Poly-Rhythmo De Cotonou Dahomey, "Porry" by Sorry Bamba, "Allah Wakbarr" by Ofo & The Black Company, "Sanjina" by Orchestre Regional De Kayes, "Ifa" by Tunji Oyelana & The Benders, and "Zinabu" by Bunzu Sounds.

One of the strangest albums ever recorded for Blue Note – and one of the coolest, too! Duke Pearson recorded this set in 1969 – during the middle of his last productive period of activity, at a time when he was doing some tremendous genre-crossing jazz that really broke from his earlier styles. The set's got Duke on acoustic piano and celeste – backed by a rhythm section that includes Bob Cranshaw on bass and Mickey Roker on drums, plus Airto on percussion! The sound's more open, more free than you'd expect for a Christmas album – extremely soulful overall, in a mode that makes for some great readings of "Sleigh Ride", "Wassail Song", "Go Tell It On The Mountain", "Jingle Bells", and "Little Drummer Boy".

New Freddie Hubbard & Benny GolsonJazz Masters – Freddie Hubbard & Benny Golson ... CD
LRC, 1987. Used ... Just Sold Out!
An obscure date from trumpeter Freddie Hubbard and tenorist Benny Golson – but some really great work from both players! The format here is relaxed and very open – long tunes that allow both players to really stretch out on their solos with tremendous grace and imagination. And despite the low price and simple packaging of the set, the quality of both the music and recording is easily on a par with the best 80s work by Hubbard and Golson – and is a masterful meeting of both artists! The group's a quintet, with more additional great talent – including Mulgrew Miller on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Marvin Smitty Smith on drums – hitting the kit with a great sense of energy that really drives the session. Titles include a great acoustic reworking of Hubbard's classic "Povo", presented in a way that's still surprisingly funky – plus "Double Bass", "Sad To Say", "Far Away", "Gypsy Jingle Jangle", and "Love Is A Many Splendored Thing".

New AgincourtFly Away ... CD
Acme Gramophone/Lion (UK), 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautiful blend of folk and psychedelia – carried off with a bit of a Sunshine Pop twist as well! The recording's got a homespun sort of feel – one that's a lot less polished than other efforts like this of the time, in a way that really furthers the charming nature of the tunes. There's clearly elements of bigger, more established acts filtering through the music – but the end result is deeply personal and homespun. John Ferdinando and Peter Howe sing in a harmony-based style on some of the best tracks – more Sunshine than folk, despite the acoustic guitars on the set – and the lovely Lee Menelaus also delivers some great vocals too, further sweetening up the sound! Many tunes have a catchy, jingly-jangly quality – a bit like post-folk work from the west coast of the late 60s – and titles include "Mirabella", "All My Life", "Going Home", "Joy In The Finding", "Get Together", "When I Awoke", and "Lisa". CD features 2 bonus tracks – "Going Home (alt)" and "Though I May Be Dreaming (stereo)" – plus a well-done booklet, filled with plenty of notes! CD

Impulse (Japan), 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A strangely wonderful album from Marion Brown – quite different from his other work on Impulse, with a mellow electric edge that gives it a warm and laidback feel! The approach here is much more soulful than before – with finely crafted tunes that weave Brown's work on alto with electric piano by Anthony Davis and Stanley Cowell, percussion by Ed Blackwell and Jimmy Hopps, and bass by Reggie Workman. If you're expecting the angrier Brown from earlier years, you'll be disappointed – but if you're ready to hear a Brown that's gently crafting mellow lines in a soulful setting, then you're in for a treat. Tracks include Cowell's "Maimoun", Stevie Wonder's "Visions", Brown's "Vista", "Moment of Truth", "Bismillah Rrahimani Rrahim", and "Djinji". CD

Benny Golson's one of those players who never lets us down – and here, into his 80th year in on the planet, the man's still burning strongly and soulfully! The set's got a very solid, put-together sort of sound – the quality that's always made us seek out Golson albums of any vintage, amazed at the depth of feeling and richness of creativity that Benny can bring to even a simple sort of date. This one's definitely a cut above, though – self-produced by Golson, and featuring a lineup with Eddie Henderson on trumpet and flugelhorn, Steve Davis on trombone, Mike LeDonne on piano, Buster Williams on bass, and Carl Allen on drums – all rock-solid players who help Benny flesh out his sound beautifully here, reaching some nice sensitive points at times, then sliding back into warmly soulful grooves. Al Jarreau guests with vocals on a version of "Whisper Not" – and other titles include "Verdi's Voice", "Uptown Afterburn", "Gypsy Jingle Jangle", "From Dream To Dream", "Grove's Groove", "L'Adieu", and "Love Me In A Special Way".

Both albums have a good hard Latin jazz feel, with a little bit of Latin soul thrown in – in the same kind of mix of jazz and Latin that you'd find on the Pucho albums for Prestige at the same time. The bands on both sets include a number of great players, like Leonard Goines on trumpet, Al Gibbons on tenor, Eddie Gomez on bass – and the surprising addition of Milford Graves on percussion and Chick Corea on piano (although any fan of Chick's knows he got his start with Latin bands.) Lots of tasty Latin groovers, including "Fatman", "The Jinx", "Ewe", "Ouch", "Bata Blues", "Haitian Lady", and lots lots more! CD

New Various1970s Algerian Folk & Pop ... LP
Sublime Frequencies, 1970s. New Copy Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great dip into the sounds of Algeria in the 70s – surprisingly great music, and surprisingly sophisticated at times too – with a vibe that often matches the best Turkish or Iranian records from the time! Most numbers here are from smaller 45s and EP release – and are hardly the rock or pop going down in the Anglo world of the time – as the themes, structures, and instrumentation are often pretty far-reaching – a really creative blend of ancient and modern instrumentation, often used with exotic tones alongside straighter, catchy passages. The set features detailed notes and images of vintage records – and titles include "Wahdi" by Kri Kri, "Habit En Itch" by Rachid & Fethi, "Nesthel" by Les Djinns, "Silence Des Cenres" by Ahmed Malek, "N'Sani N'Sani" by Smail Chaoui, and "Chenagh Le Blues" by Abranis.

New VariousAfro Rock Vol 1 ... CD
Kona/Evolver, 1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the best compilations of Afro Funk titles we've ever stocked – one that goes way past the obvious titles and minor hits of the 70s! Ever tune on here is a gem – and the package even includes a few tunes that were either previously unreleased, or which were only ever issued on cassette, a popular form in 70s Africa. The "rock" in the title should be taken lightly – because the groove here is more funky, with drums, guitar, and horns coming together in glorious rhythmic cacophony! The whole set's got a great raw sound – and titles include "Mabala" by Yahoos, "Onukpa Shawarpo" by Bokoor Band, "Sweeper Soul" by Super Mambo 69, "Yuda" by Dackin Dackino, "Envy No Good" by Mercury Dance Band", and "Fever" by Jingo.

New VariousSound Of Tiki ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautiful batch of tropical classics from the glory days of the American exotica scene – put together in a package that's every bit as seductive as the music! The set comes with a lovely 50 page booklet, filled with beautiful color images that work well with the music – that usual high Bear Family quality level we've come to expect! Tunes are well-chosen, too – way past the obvious – and cuts include "I Ha She" by Marais & Miranda, "Kon Tiki" by The Shadows, "House Of Bamboo" by Andy Williams, "Castaway" by Paul Page, "Aku Aku" by Martin Denny, "Taboo Tu" by Arthur Lyman, "Bamboo" by The Surfmen, "Pieces Of Eight" by Paul Page, "Hawaiian Eye" by Buddy Morrow, and "Hawaii Five O/Quiet Village" by Don Ho. Also features a bonus radio jingle – "Luau Is Calling You"! CD

New Milt Jackson & Wes MontgomeryBags Meets Wes! (Keepnews collection with bonus track) ... CD
Riverside, 1961. Used ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful combination we'd like to hear more of – one that comes from the meeting of Milt Jackson's vibes and the guitar of Wes Montgomery – both recorded here in easygoing brilliance! The session's a nice break from the usual sound of both players at the time – and although Wes played a bit with vibes when working in The Montgomery Brothers, the Jackson approach here is a bit different – more soulful, and a bit more driven on by the rhythm section of Wynton Kelly, Sam Jones, and Philly Joe Jones. Titles include the originals "SKJ", "Blue Roz", "Jingles", and "Sam Sack" – plus versions of "Stairway To The Stars (take 2)", "Stablemates (take 2)", "Jingles (take 8)", and "Delilah (take 3)". CD

New Shigeharu MukaiLive 97 (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Sony (Japan), 1981. New Copy 2CD Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
One of the best electric sets from trombonist Shigeharu Mukai – a double-length album recorded at Pit Inn with his Morning Flight group – in a nicely extended take on the soulful sound of their studio records! The album features these long-spiralling keyboard solos from Mashiro Sayama – who's almost as much a draw as Mukai on trombone – and the leader finds a way to step out alongside the keyboard and guitar with the force of a horn section at time, then bank into the sort of soulful, lyrical solos he's always done so well. All tracks are long – and titles include "Jindow", "Phrygian Blue", "Dragon Fanatic", "Smoke In Purple", "Margarita", and "Dark Marine". CD

New In Motion CollectiveJesse's Jing/MTA ... 7-inch
Colemine, 2013. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
There's a great break at the beginning of this one – the kind that you'd be more likely to find in the middle of a tune, as a breakdown – but which almost makes this one feel like you're starting out with the funkier "part 2" of the tune! The cut's an instrumental with some heavy horns that blow in once it gets going – somewhere in a space between 70s Afro Funk and The JBs! "MTA" has some nice trippy bits on the guitar at the beginning – and a snapping rhythm to start the whole thing out, ala "Time Is Tight" – before the moody horns come in and make the whole thing their own! 7-inch, Vinyl record

New Freddie KingComplete King & Federal Singles ... CD
King/Real Gone, Early 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Smoking early work from the legendary Freddie King – most of it recorded during years he had a strong connection to the Chicago electric blues scene, where he really honed his craft to perfection! The work here is definitely blues, but King's vocals bring a soulful inflection to the songs that's undeniable – and although his hard-riffing style would later be copped by countless imitators on later cheesy blues albums, the presentation here is still breathtaking – really raw, and recorded by King with this clear, sharp sound on the guitar that seems to knock out all other elements when Freddie takes a solo! The package is one of the first to really dig deep into these crucial years for King – and brings together 54 tracks all recorded as singles for King Records – complete with full notes, and even information on the original releases too. Titles include "In The Open", "Texas Oil", "Come On", "Just Pickin", "I Hear Jingle Bells", "Hideaway", "Look Ma I'm Cryin", "King A Ling", "Driving Sideways", "Meet Me At The Station", "Monkey Donkey", "Surf Monkey", "The Bossa Nova Watusi Twist", and "Manhole".

New VariousAfrican Scream Contest – Raw & Psychedelic Afro Sounds From Benin & Togo 70s ... LP
Analog Africa (Germany), 1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
One of the coolest African collections we've seen in years – a beautiful assortment of untapped grooves from the 70s, put together with a massive booklet that sets a whole new standard in packaging! The grooves here are different from other Afro Funk collections of the time – definitely more in the raw and psychedelic territory promised by the title, and filled with hard-edged vocals that surely know how to scream! There's still plenty of funk in the rhythms, but the execution is often quite unusual – less directly influenced by American soul, and very much off in its own direction. Lots of choppy guitar, too – and the set comes with a massive 42 page booklet filled with full color images and loads of notes. Titles include "Gbeti Madjro" by Orchestre Poly-Rhythmo De Cotonou, "Mi Ma Kpe Dji" by Picoby Band D'Aborney, "Mi Kple Dogbekpo" by Lokonon Andre & Les Volcans, "Oya Ka Jojo" by Les Volcans De La Capital, "Ou C'Est Lui Ou C'Est Moi" by Vincent Ahehehinnou, "Wait For Me" by Roger Damawuzan, "Leki Santchi" by Napo De Mi Amor Et Ses Black Devils, "Ye Nan Lon An" by Orchestre Super Jheevs Des Paillotes, and "Houiou Djin Nan Zon Aklumon" by Discafric Band.

Columbia/Culture Factory, 1978. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
David Johansen wipes off the lipstick and kicks off his heels for this first solo set –sans drag, we're left with a normal looking dude – and one hell of a great, still glammy sounding record that's right up there in excellence with his New York Dolls canon! Wow, is this ever underrated. David would go on the tweak his style and persona in a bunch of different ways, to varying creative and commercial success. Here he's just out to make a kickass rock and roll record as he'd done with the dolls, sans the wardrobe and junkie hijinks, but with all the blistering rock guitar and gritty R&B influences. This one really blazes! Includes "Funky But Chic", "Girls", "Not That Much", "Donna", "I'm A Lover" and "Frenchette". CD

New Seu JorgeMusicas Para Churrasco Vol 1 – Ao Vivo (2CD set) ... CD
Universal (Brazil), 2012. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Killer live work from Seu Jorge – one of his boldest, proudest records to date – and that's saying a lot, given the soulful promise of all his other work! We've always loved Jorge, but we first really fell in love with his music in a live setting – where he's got an undeniable charm and charisma, on a level with older legends like Stevie Wonder or Marvin Gaye at their best. Other live sets have always shown Jorge as a mellower, more acoustic artist – but this one really has him exploding with a very funky sound throughout – really hitting that superstardom we always saw coming in his talents – working before a very large crowd, and clearly driving them nuts with his sublime performance on the set. The album's a real step forward for Jorge – upbeat, funky, filled with soul, and exactly the kind of music that should hopefully have him exploding around the globe. Titles include "A Doida", "Pessoal Particular", "Dia De Comemorar", "Mina Do Condomino", "Vizinha", "Burguesinha", "Diario De Um Detento", and "Dois Beijinhos". 2CD version features 12 more tracks than the core album – almost like getting a full extra record!

New Tom ZeReturn Of Tom Ze – Hips Of Tradition – Brazil Classics 5 ... CD
Luaka Bop, 1992. Used ... Out Of Stock
A great return for the legendary Tom Ze – an artist who'd been brought back to prominence via the efforts of a Luaka Bop compilation – then given this great chance to record for the label on his own! The set's a great return to form for Ze – who sprung from this moment into a renewed period of creative energy – really drawing on his crucial years of groundbreaking sounds in Brazil during the Tropicalia generation, and especially the 70s – when Tom had really moved off into a realm of his own. Most tracks are relatively short, and pretty enigmatic – a flurry of the sounds and verbal experiments that always made Ze so great! Titles include "Jingle Do Disco", "Cortina 3", "Amar", "Ogodo, Ano 2000", "Feira De Santana", "Fliperama", and "Tatuaramba". CD
(Out of print.)
