Orchestra BaobabNight At Club Baobab – Senegalese Dance Music Of The 70s ... CD
Oriki (France), 1970s. New Copy .... $14.99 16.98
A tremendous compilation of rare work by one of the hippest African groups of the 70s – the mighty Orchestra Baobab, a combo who wove together many different strands of jazz, funk, and soul! The tunes here are all live ones – recorded in the mid 70s in the group's home turf at Club Baobab, and often done in a looser, more open mode than some of their better-known sessions – a perfect setting for the complicated rhythms, snakey horn parts, and soulful vocals that emerge as the set moves on! A few tracks here get nice and funky – funkier than even we would have expected from the group – and others maintain a compellingly creative sound that really keeps things interesting, with plenty of exotic overtones and otherworldly styles! The whole thing's great – way more than just a collection of 70s Afro Funk, and a record that's nicely links up the worlds of both Fela and Mulatu through its creative interplay of sounds. CD features 13 tracks that include "Jin Ma Jin Ma", "Souleymane", "Saf Mana Dem", "Kelen Ati Leen", "Seeri Koko", "Liti Liti", "Dirarabi", "On Verra", "Cabral", "Wango", "Sey", and "Yolanda". CD

David WeissEndangered Species – The Music Of Wayne Shorter Live ... CD
Motema, 2013. New Copy .... $11.99 14.98
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

New Art BlakeyIndestructible ... CD
Blue Note, 1964. Used .... Just Sold Out!
A killer pounding session from Blakey! The record was recorded during Blakey's bright flash of genius in 1964, when the Jazz Messengers were briefly revisited by Lee Morgan and Wayne Shorter, with the added horn of Curtis Fuller to add new colors to the group. Cedar Walton's on piano, and his lyrical comping brings the band to new soulful heights. Tracks include "The Egyptian", "Sortie", "Calling Miss Khadija", and "Mr. Jin". CD features the bonus track "It's A Long Way Down", penned by Wayne Shorter. CD

New OlatunjiDrums Of Passion ... LP
Columbia, 1960. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A classic session of pounding percussion – quite possibly the most successful entry into this earthy genre that hit the recording scene at the end of the 50s! Babatunde Olatunji is joined here by a great assemblage of players – including Montego Joe and Baba Hawthorne Bey on percussion, who further flesh out the rumbling, rhythmic groove at the bottom. There's also a group of vocalists on the record, soaring over the top of the percussion with a nicely righteous feel – and the record's a key crossover moment that heralds later African expressions in the American mainstream. Titles include "Odun De Odun De", "Oya", "Jin Go Lo Ba", "Baba Jinde", and "Shango". LP, Vinyl record album

Francis BebeyAfrican Electronic Music 1975 to 1982 ... LP
Born Bad (France), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP .... $26.99
Not what you might expect when shopping for African music – unique electronic sounds from Cameroon musician Francis Bebey – as heavy on keyboards as other 70s work is on guitar! There's still plenty of acoustic elements in the mix though, too – lots of earthy percussion at the bottom, which links some of these tracks to other styles of the time – even though some of the more unusual tunes here have these great electronic sounds that almost feel like they came from the late 70s German underground! The mix of modes is breathtaking – as if Moebius and Roedelius recorded with musicians from Lagos – shaking off the colder sounds of the Conny Plank side of the spectrum, to come up with a warm new style that's really unique! Titles include "La Condition Masculine", "Sahle", "The Coffee Cola Song", "Super Jingle", "Pygmy Love Song", "Agatha", "Catching Up", and "Divorce Pygmee". LP, Vinyl record album

New Bee GeesMorning Of My Life – The Best Of The Bee Gees 1965/1966 ... CD
Warner (Australia), Mid 60s. New Copy .... $16.99
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".

Milt Jackson & Wes MontgomeryBags Meets Wes! (Keepnews collection with bonus track) ... CD
Riverside, 1961. New Copy .... $4.99
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

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 .... $29.99
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!

Freddie KingComplete King & Federal Singles ... CD
King/Real Gone, Early 60s. New Copy 2 CDs .... $23.99 26.98
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".

The east coast crime life epic from Kool G Rap & DJ Polo – hard hitting headnodding production from Sir Jinx, Kool G Rap & Trakmasterz – and riveting, violent wordplay from Kool G Rap! Live And Let Die isn't as well remembered as a handful of the other violent storytelling classics of the era – but this thing sounds pretty tight all these years later, and it's a clear precursor to some legendary material to come! Includes "#1 With A Bullet", "Go For Your Guns", "Nuff Said", "Edge of Sanity", "Home Sweet Home", and "Two To The Head", featuring Ice Cube, Scarface, & Bushwick Bill, and the classic "On the Run".

Dimsa (Mexico), Early 60s. New Copy .... $9.99
Solid first wave of rock sounds from Mexico's Los Beatniks – from raw & rockabilly centered to groovier 60s styles more indebted to surf and overall pulpier grooves! On top of kicking out the proto garage rock jams with vigor, the group's exceptional spinning the time honored earlyish rock way of mixing gruff lead vocals with sweeter group harmonies. Great stuff! Titles include "Jinetes En El Cielo", "Que Paso Con John", "Blues De Memphis", "Mirando Al Mar", "Papacito Frio", "Cancion Del Rio Rojo", "Mucho Amor", "Ayudeme Alguien" and more. CD

New 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".

Joanie SommersCome Alive – The Complete Columbia Recordings ... CD
Columbia/Real Gone, Mid 60s. New Copy .... $14.99 15.98
A great package of music from singer Joanie Sommers – none of which has ever been on CD before! At the core of the record is the album Come Alive – really groovy work from singer Sommers – an overlooked gem recorded after her initial albums for Warner Brothers, and put together with some mighty cool arrangements from the great Mort Garson! Joanie's lost all her little girl pop modes here – and instead really comes across with the adult charm of a jazz singer – reaching out with some surprisingly deep tones on the mellower cuts, and showing a great sense of swing on the groovers – all at a mode that really takes her past the style of the early years! Mort's backings are great – as rich in jazzy tones as someone like Marty Paich, but also touched with some of the unusual inflections that always make Garson's music so great. Tracks include "I'm All Smiles", "Girl Talk", "You'd Better Love Me", "You Take What Comes Along", "Watch What Happens", "Too Late Now", and "Sunday In New York". Added to the core album are 12 more bonus tracks, some of which were singles, some never issued, and one a rare Pepsi commercial! Bonus cuts include "Love Song", "Never Never", "Alfie", "Never Throw Your Dreams Away", "Come Alive (Pepsi jingle)", and "It Doesn't Matter Anymore". CD

The second Stet LP, with the group repping BK in fine style.

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. New Copy .... $14.99
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

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

Armando TrovajoliIl Vichingo Venuto Dal Sud/L'Uccello Migratore ... CD
Saimel (Spain), 1971/1972. New Copy .... $26.99
A pair of early 70s soundtracks from Armando Trovajoli – both of them overlooked, and both of them pretty darn groovy! Il Vichingo Venuto Dal Sud has a jangly English-language theme at the start – but then soon drifts into wonderfully mellow territory that mixes jazzy Fender Rhodes with bits of strings – elements used in ways that shift from cut to cut, with the keyboards echoing Trovajoli modes of the late 60s, while the strings underscore some slightly more serious emotion – but in a nice way! Vocal tunes include "Limited Concern" and "Jingles On My Mind". L'Uccello Migratore has a pretty cool 70s vibe throughout – bits of keyboard, guitar, and electric bass used in modes that shift from sunny to trippy to mellow – often with these little flourishes that really live up to all we've come to love from Armando, especially some of his best groovy 70s material. The few vocal tunes have a cool Sunshine Pop feel – and titles include "The Sun Is Shining On My Head", "L'Uccello Migratore", "Incontro Informale", and "Little Safari". CD

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

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

A diverse, yet cohesive, batch of grooves compiled and largely produced by Osunlade – serving as both an exclusive sampler for his Yoruba roster of artists – and as a great stand-alone compilation for Soul Jazz! At this point, Osunlade reigns as one of great musical bridge builders around – and this set only strengthens his reputation! Strains of Afro funk, nu soul, club soul and house, Brazil, and even some Gainsbourg-esque sultriness are touched upon in this pretty much faultless tracklist! Amazing work all around! The set list features some recognizable names, and some soon-to-be recognizable names, with titles that include "Resolution" by Anne Wirz, ""El Music" KB, "Caridad" by Taino Leon, "Simple Pleasures" by Nadirah Shakoor, "Is There Anybody Here" by Jimmie Abney, "Grits" by Djinji Brown featuring Marion Brown, "Theme From Juan" by Tempo Perdido, "Acrylic Venezula" by Osunlade, "Trinajo" by Siji, "Tudo Voce Podia Ser" by Nombumbah, "Level 42" by Robert Strauss featuring Chris Henessy & Chris Rouse and more!

Loads and loads of cool old TV commercials, back from the old days – when nobody cared how goofy they sounded, and when they spent way too much money on studio hacks churning out cool little grooves and jingles.

VariousWorld Psychedelic Classics 3 – Love's A Real Thing – The Funky Fuzzy Sounds Of West Africa (with download) ... LP
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.

Antonio AdolfoFeito Em Casa (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Artezanal/Polysom (Brazil), 1977. New Copy (reissue).... Just Sold Out!
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

(Blue label Orphem pressing.)

Xzibit40 Dayz & 40 Nightz ... LP
Loud, 1998. Near Mint- 2LP .... Just Sold Out!
Just before Xzibit broke big with Dre, he dropped this 2nd LP, which includes the still-underground-sounding "What U See Is What U Get", "3 Card Molly" with like-minded west coasters Ras Kass & Saafir, and "Let It Rain" with the 'Liks & King Tee. Many cuts produced by Sir Jinx, who laced Cube with a few nice beats back in the day. Other titles include "Nobody Sound Like Me", "Shroomz", "Deeper", "Recycled Assassins", "Inside Job", "Focus", "Handle Your Business", and "Los Angeles Times". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousTelevision's Greatest Hits – The Commercials ... LP
TV Tunes, 1989. Very Good+ .... Just Sold Out!
Shorter than the usual TV Tunes 2 LP sets, and with only 55 tracks – but, oh, what tracks they are! Loads and loads of cool old TV commercials, back from the old days – when nobody cared how goofy they sounded, and when they spent way too much money on studio hacks churning out cool little grooves and jingles. You'll remember some of these, and others will come back to you from the deepest haunts of your memories. Titles include "Plop Plop Fizz Fizz" (Alka-Seltzer), "A Little Dab'll Do Ya" (Brylcream), "When You Say Bud" (Budweiser), "Choo Choo Charlie" (Good & Plenty), "Be A Pepper" (Dr. Pepper), "Meow Meow Meow Meow" (Meow Mix – as performed by Dr. Zero in Austin Powers!), "The Dogs Kids Love To Bite" (Armour Hot Dogs), "Sometimes You Feel Like A Nut" (Almond Joy) – and loads loads more! Very goofy, but a real hit with the kids and the sample crowd. LP, Vinyl record album

New EminemMarshall Mathers LP ... CD
Interscope/Aftermath, 2000. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Eminem's 2nd LP, where the sh*it REALLY hits the fan. What's still striking and genuinely exciting about this record, which is hardly worth even describing considering the mountains of opinions, protests, and moral grand standing, is Em's willingness to keep instigating the people he offended. Throughout the years it seems that all of the hugely controversial pop artists backed off a little or explained themselves when things got out of hand. Rappers like Ice T and 2 Live Crew, and rockers like Marilyn Manson all made appearances on talk shows, to at least defend their artistic expression when they were accused by conservatives and/or liberal thought police. Eminem saw what was happening, and reacted by sinking bigger bait, which of course hooked meatier targets – the most amusing of which came from overrated VH1 celebrity gadfly/commercial jingle composer Moby, and Lynn freakin' Cheney of all people. Very impressive, Slim. Oh yeah, he raps, too. Includes the tracks "Kill You", the mega singles "The Real Slim Shady" & "Stan", "Remember Me", "I'm Back", "Drug Ballad", and more. CD

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

Sonic Youth's major label debut – which is, somewhat perversely, less insistently accessible as the preceding Daydream Nation – with slow-building guitar squalls and oddball noise pop in just about equal measure! Goo is self-produced, with some assistance from their fellow Geffen newbie (circa '90) J Mascis and Don Fleming. Includes the absolute classic "Dirty Boots", plus "Tunic", "Kool Thing", "Disappearer", "My Friend Goo" and "Scooter and Jinx". Tell 'em 'bout it! Hit 'em where it hurts! Tell it like it is. Word up.

Suss'd/Salsoul (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used 2CD .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A glorious celebration of the 30th Anniversary of the mighty Salsoul label – one that features 30 tracks from the glory days, all hand-picked by 30 of the world's top DJs! The package gives due respect to the early club maestros who first helped the Salsoul sound get out to the masses – like Nicky Siano, Tom Moulton, Marshall Jefferson, and Danny Krivit – but it also recognizes the huge influence the music has had on the global scene over the years, and features selections by DJs that include Gilles Peterson, Marc Mac, Louie Vega, Norman Jay, and Kenny Dope. The booklet features notes on each track by the DJ who chose it – and titles include "Dancing In the Stars" by Logg, "Make It Last Forever" by Inner Life, "Love Thang" by First Choice, "You're Just The Right Size" by Salsoul Orchestra, "My Love Is Free" by Double Exposure, "Jingo" by Candido, "First Time Around" by Skyy, "Sing Sing" by Gaz, "Dancin & Prancin" by Candido, "Just As Long As I Got You" by Love Committee, "Love Having You Around" by First Choice, "The Beat Goes On & On" by Ripple, "Catch Me On The Rebound" by Loleatta Holloway, and "As Long As You Love Me" by True Example.

New VariousUltra Chicks Vol 5 – Chicks A Go Go ... CD
Get Hip, Mid 60s. New Copy .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Lots of great French female tracks on this set – mod numbers from that great 60s stretch that created so many wonderful records in France – brought together here in a jaw-dropping array of excellent tunes! We've always thought we knew most of the great stuff from Paris at the time – but this series is honestly a really ear-opening one – as we're stunned at how many tracks here we've never heard before, and the way the collection goes way past the usual French female tunes that are often compiled and re-compiled so often – yet still have the same great grooves we love in work by France Gall or Francoise Hardy! Titles on this fifth volume include "Les Gemaux" by Ariane, "Tu Peux Pas Savoir" by Ria Bartok, "J'Ai Rendez-Vous" by Deliza, "Parti De Dames" by Liz Brady, "Z'Avez Pas Lu Kafka" by Suzanne Gabriello, "Dum Dum" by Jina Miko, "Satisfaction" by Trio Sourire, "25 Ans" by Lorraine Myra, and "Sur De Toi" by Monique Gaube.

New AgincourtFly Away ... CD
Acme Gramophone/Lion (UK), 1970. New Copy .... 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

New Milt Jackson & Wes MontgomeryBags Meets Wes! (with bonus tracks) ... 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 bonus tracks "Stairway To The Stars (take 2)" & "Delilah (take 3)". CD

A single as trippy as you might guess from the image on the cover – surprisingly groovy, as the whole thing starts with this downturning bit of guitar fuzz that sets up a very cool rhythm – as Derek and some harmonizing singers come into the mix and give the whole thing a wicked sunny feel! "Love Is The Plan" is pretty great too – a jingle-jangle number with a pretty dark edge – up a few more notches in the Hollywood hills from The Byrds! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Dual Planet, Early 80s. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
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". CD

New John TropeaTropea ... LP
Marlin, 1975. Used Gatefold .... Out Of Stock
The first album from guitarist John Tropea – ace 70s session guitarist, but a surprisingly great leader and arranger in his own right too! Tropea's working here in a vibe that's clearly influence by the CTI sound – smooth but funky fusion – laid down in prime studio conditions, but still nicely soulful throughout, and without any of the BS that crept into other overly-jamming or too-slick records from the time. Guitar's the lead solo instrument on the set, but the album has a lot of other strong work by players that Deodato, Steve Gadd, Rick Marotta, and Rubens Bassini – making for a very tight set that's stood up wonderfully through the years. Titles include "The Bratt", "Tambourine", "7th Heaven", "The Jingle", "Just Blue", "Muff", and "Dreams". LP, Vinyl record album

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.

New CandidoDancin' & Prancin' (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Salsoul/Big Break (UK), 1979. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
A key chapter in the rich long legacy of Candido on record – a set that pushes the percussion maestro strongly into the disco generation – with wonderful results that are still massively strong all these many years later! Candido had always been one of the funkiest conga players around – especially as his music moved into the 70s – but here, he really takes off with some sublime disco arrangements – full clubby grooves that are some of the best Salsoul sounds of the time, yet which still leave plenty of room for Candi's congas! The congas participate in the rhythms at every level – and often take on a nice solo spotlight too – and all tracks are nice and long, with killers that include a club remake of "Thousand Finger Man", plus "Dancin & Prancin", "Jingo", and "Rock & Shuffle". CD features a massive amount of bonus tracks – more than on the album – with gems from singles that include "Jingo (original 12" version)", "Thousand Finger Man (12" ext version)", "Jingo (Shep Pettibone mix)", "Thousand Finger Man (single)", "Jingo (single)", and "Jingo (inst)".

New David PorterGritty, Groovy, & Gettin' It (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Enterprise/Stax (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
A killer first album as a lead artist for David Porter – previously known as part of a powerhouse writing team with Isaac Hayes for Stax Records – but like Ike at the time, finally given a chance to shine as an artist on his own! The set's got all the raw punch you'd expect from Porter's previous compositions – especially his work for Sam & Dave – and the set grooves along with more than enough energy and power to live up to the "gritty" in the title! Porter was definitely one of the more forward-thinking artists recording for Stax at the time – and this set features some sharp backing from the Bar-Kays, who help David realize a really bold vision of his own – one that's in stark contrast to the more baroque modes that Isaac Hayes would hit with his own recordings. Oddly, some of the numbers here are covers – something we might not expect from a writer like Porter – but they're also re-arranged in wonderful new versions that are quite different than the originals. Titles include "The Way You Do The Things You Do", "One Part Two Parts", "Guess Who", "Im A Telling You", "Can't See You When I Want To", "I Only Have Eyes For You", and "Just Be True". CD features some great bonus tracks too – singles and radio bits that include "Check Your Checking Account", "Don't Make No Nevermind", "Win You Over", and an earlier version of "Can't See You When I Want To" – plus "WVON Radio Jingle", "Can't See You WVON Radio Ad", and "House Of Wax Radio Jingle".

Salsoul/Ultra, Late 70s/2013. New Copy Gatefold .... Out Of Stock
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.

Salsoul/Gold Legion, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
A sweet collection of grooves from the legendary Salsoul label – easily one of the hippest imprints on the New York scene of the 70s! Salsoul's grooves go way beyond the usual disco – crafted with roots that go back to soul and salsa of the earlier part of the decade – and often mixed to perfection with a sound that holds up strongly, even on a crowded dancefloor! This package features ten of the best-remembered gems from the label – most in long mixes that echo their strong popularity as 12" single – titles that include "Doctor Love" by First Choice, "Runaway" by The Salsoul Orchestra with Loleatta Holloway, "Jingo" by Candido, "Dreamin" by Loleatta Holloway, "By The Way You Dance" by Bunny Sigler, "Love Is You" by Carol Williams, "Dance A Little Bit Closer" by Charo, "I Love New York" by Metropolis, and "Rio De Janeiro" by Gary Criss.
