O TercoO Terco (1970) ... CD
Forma/Discobertas (Brazil), 1970. New Copy .... $15.99
The first album we've ever seen from O Terco – a set done for the legendary Forma label, with sublime arrangements from Arthur Verocai! The record's got a wicked blend of late 60s psych and some of the groovier styles of Brazilian music at the time – almost as if a truck full of Sunshine Pop was unloaded into the Blue Brazil laboratory of Odeon Records – with a resulting blend that's simply outta site! The production is great – often a bit echoey and abstracted, which does great things with the vocals – which themselves often glide and cascade across each other in a really cool way. There's even a bit of English in the lyrics – kind of a holdover from the Jovem Guarda years – and the album's quite different than the group's later, more famous records – in a really great way that keeps things interesting throughout. Ttiles include "Velhas Historias", "Na", "Plaxe Voador", "Yes I Do", "I Need You", "Imagem", "Saturday Dream", and "Meia Noite". CD

O TercoO Terco (1972) (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Continental/Discos Mariposa (Argentina), 1972. New Copy .... $9.99
The second album from O Terco – the guitar-heavy power trio who were one of the hardest things going in Brazil during the early 70s! The album's got a style that's somewhat progressive, but which also still holds onto plenty of late 60s psychedelic elements – qualities both sweet and dark, often compressed into the arrangements with an approach that's a bit like some of the more underground South American rock of the time. Side one of the album features 5 shorter tracks – "Deus", "Voce Al", "Estrada Vazia", "Lagoa Das Lontras", and "Rock Do Elvis" – and the second side features the 19 minute suite"Amanheger Total" – a soaring, building number with lots of changes throughout! CD features 2 bonus tracks – "Tributo Ao Sorriso" and "Adormeceu". CD

New VariousFestival Internacional Da Cancao Vol 2 – 1969 to 1972 (7CD set) ... CD
Odeon/Discobertas (Brazil), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 7CD .... Out Of Stock
Legendary work from a crucial component of Brazilian culture in the late 60s and early 70s – the International Song Festivals of the time – a very important way of presenting both new talent and new compositions as well! The events were really unique, and often quite striking – from both a cultural and political perspective – as artists used the festivals as a key platform for taking steps forward in their words and music – sometimes steps that were even bolder than their studio work on record! Performances are unique to the records, and usually represent some key non-album tracks from the artists involved. This second volume brings together work from the 1969 to 1972 versions of the Festivals – a really crucial time in Brazilian music, represented here by performances from Clara Nunes, Marcos Valle, Quarteto Forma, Beth Carvalho, Golden Boys, Tiaguara, Evinha, Antonio Adolfo & Brazuca, Maria Odette, Oz Brazoes, Hermes Aquinho, Alceu Valenca, O Grupo, Vox Populi, Martinho Da Vila, Luiza, Som Okey 5, Jards Macale, Os Tres Morais, Tribo, Toni Tornado, Agostinho Dos Santos, Trio Esperanca, Wilson Simonal, O Terco, Som Imaginario, Wanderlea, Silvo Cesar, Osmar Milito, Ze Rodrix, Claudia, Alaide Costa, and many others! Box features the full albums IV Festival Internacional Da Cancao Popular Vols 1, 2, & 3 (1969), V Festival Internacional Da Cancao Popular Vols 1 & 2 (1970), VI Festival Internacional Da Cancao Popular (1971), and VII Festival Internacional Da Cancao Popular (1972) – and most albums have bonus tracks too!

Art BlakeyButtercorn Lady ... LP
Limelight, 1966. Good+ Gatefold .... $11.99
An unusual little record from Art Blakey – a live set recorded at the Lighthouse in 1966, with a band that includes the surprising lineup of Keith Jarrett on piano and Chuck Mangione on trumpet! If you're surprised at the mix of players, and figure that they won't groove with Blakey's soulful approach – don't worry, as Art's still strongly at the helm, and manages to get incredibly tight performances out of both of them – really forging them strongly into a Jazz Messengers groove! The group also features Frank Mitchell on tenor and Reggie Johnson on bass – and Mangione wrote a number of the tracks for the album, including "Buttercorn Lady", a nice funky soul jazz groover, "Recuerdo", with a bit of a Latin feel, and "Between Races", a charger in typical Jazz Messengers style! LP, Vinyl record album
(Original gatefold cover, including the attached booklet. Cover has staining & light wear.)

Joanna Bowring & Margaret O'BrienArt Of Romance – Mills & Boon & Harlequin Cover Designs ... Book
Prestel, 2008. New Copy .... $6.99 25.00
Lavish color illustrations from the glory days of the romance paperback – a wealth of classic covers from British publisher Mills & Boon – also the parent company of Harlequin Romance! The images are stunning, and the book is very thoughtfully put together – not an exploitation of the genre, but a really great attempt to showcase the artwork that helped sell the sex between the pages – laid out here with each cover taking up a full-color page of the book! There's a short introduction at the start, but the main attraction to us is the images – especially the huge amount of great watercolors from the 50s, 60s, and 70s. 251 pages, softcover. Book

TokensIntercourse ... CD
Rev-Ola (UK), 1969. New Copy .... $6.99
An incredibly tripped-out batch of tracks by The Tokens – a rare album that was rejected by Warner Brothers, and only issued briefly on their own label! The album's to the early Tokens stuff what Smile was to the Beach Boys' early singles – an explosion of new ideas, creativity, and clear influences from the trippier scenes of the time. And as with the Beach Boys, there's still a wonderful sense of pop songs and harmonies that dominate the set – exploded out into new modes of thinking that push past previous song structures, and which really make use of new studio freedoms. A great little set – the kind that we never would have expected from the group – with tracks that include "Commercial", "Droplet Of Water", "It's Amazing To Be Alive", "Gray Is Gray", "Waiting For Something", "I Want To Make Love To You", "Stereo", "In & Out", "You Loser You Fool", and "I Could Be".

New Ross McHenry with Mark De Clive-LoweDistant Oceans (with bonus download) ... LP
First World (UK), 2013. New Copy .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sweet spacey grooves from bassist Ross McHenry – and a set that's made even better by a host of keyboards and electronics from Mark De Clive Lowe! The style of the record is strongly jazz – mostly played live, with some subtle effects and programs – but never enough to dampen the spontaneous spirit of the musicians – especially Mark on keyboards, and reedman Adam Page – who serves up some searing work on tenor and soprano sax that really sends the album home! Rhythms are nicely laidback – no over the top fusion here – and things slide along with this wonderfully spacey groove throughout. Titles include "Intercosmos", "Distant Oceans", "Griffith Park", "Stanley Park Dream", "Malmsbury Shale", and "Living On Both Sides". LP, Vinyl record album
(Comes with a bonus download of the whole album!)

New Joe PassIntercontinental ... CD
MPS (Japan), 1970. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the grooviest records we've ever heard from guitarist Joe Pass – a sweet European session for MPS, and one with a very different feel than some of his US recordings! The setting's a trio, with a feel that's more open than some of Joe's pop-jazz sets from the 60s – and the rhythms are warmly fluid, in ways that allow Pass to play some great open-handed solos that spin out wonderfully – hanging softly in air, almost with Jim Hall-like qualities, although a bit more inside overall. The rest of the group features Eberhard Weber on bass and Kenny Clare on drums – and titles include a great version of "Ode To Billy Joe", plus "Chloe", "I Love You", "Joe's Blues", "Watch What Happens", and "El Gento".

New Sun RaHeliocentric Worlds Of Sun Ra Vol 3 – The Lost Tapes ... CD
ESP, 1965. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Previously unissued work by Sun Ra – tracks recorded during the sessions for his Heliocentric Worlds 2 album for ESP, but lost to the sands of time for nearly 40 years! Like that previous album, this one features a smaller version of the Arkestra than usual – an octet that has Ra working with core hornmen Pat Patrick, John Gilmore, Marshall Allen, Walter Miller, and Robert Cummings – supported by a rhythm section that includes Ronnie Boykins on bass and Roger Blank on percussion. Apart from a lot of added percussion by various members of the group, the instrumentation overall is relatively straightforward – even if Ra's compositions are not. The set kicks off with the 17 minute "Intercosmosis" – a relatively free, stretched-out tune – then is followed by shorter numbers that travel along darker, more introspective pathways. These titles include "World Worlds", "Interplanetary Travelers", "Mythology Metamorphosis", and "Heliocentric Worlds". CD

New ShadowfaxWatercourse Way ... LP
Passport, 1976. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Pre-Windham Hill jamming from Shadowfax – recorded when the group had a much more pronounced rock bent, and used more heavy guitars than on later albums! The set's still got some elements of the group's earthy acoustic work that broke them big in the 80s, but the main focus is on instrumental rock, of the complicated guitar-based variety – with lots of long exploratory tunes that feature complicated solos and rhythms, and lots of nice time changes. Titles include "Watercourse Way", "Linear Dance", "Shape Of A Word", and "Book Of Hours". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has ring & edge wear, a partially unglued bottom seam, and a light stain on the back.)

New WatersWatercolors ... LP
Arista, 1980. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A nicely grooving set to start the 80s by The Waters – an underappreciated 2-man, 2-woman LA vocal group who did a considerable amount of backup vocals in the studio scene of the late 70s – and this is easily their best record! It's got some of the best arrangements the group ever received – and it's also got a smooth modern soul style that's similar to some of Wayne Henderson's work on Fantasy Records, mixed with some of the smooth jazz funk that was coming out on Arista at the time. An overlooked gem! Titles include "I Can Make You Smile", "Throw A Little Bit Of Love My Way", "Come To Me", "Dance With Me", "Heart Lead The Way", "Let Him Prove It", and "Party People". LP, Vinyl record album

New Judy RobertsJudy Roberts Band ... LP
Madonna, 1979. Used .... Out Of Stock
The important first album by singer Judy Roberts – an excellent jazz talent with a sound that's up there with the best jazz fusion vocalists of the 70s! Judy comes at the end of a decade that scored big recordings for singers like Flora Purim and Urzula Dudziak – and she's easily as great as any of those three, and often sadly lost to time because of the later years in which she recorded, and the Chicago scene in which she made her home! This first self-produced album is a rare groovehound's gem – filled with soaring numbers that feature Roberts on both vocals and keyboards – including electric piano, Arp, clavinet, and other keyboards. Titles include "Fantasy", "Thumbs", "Never Was Love", "Dandelion", "Yes Indeed", and "Watercolors". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has some wear.)
