New RodriguezComing From Reality (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Sussex/Light In The Attic, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
An amazing second set from Sixto Rodriguez – recorded in the legendary Landsdowne Studios in London, with a groove that's a great extension from his debut! All of Rodriguez's best elements are in place here – his folksy guitar, personal lyrical style, and surprisingly biting approach to a variety of topics – and the London setting provides him with an even more sophisticated backdrop than before, one that creates a rich palette of sounds that takes the music in some really wonderful directions! There's a bit of strings at times, but most instrumentation is by a small combo – which includes Chris Spedding on guitar and Tony Carr on percussion – so that Rodriguez's vocals and guitar are really right up front in the mix, recorded with a brilliant balance between sharpness and compassion. Titles include "Climb Up On My Music", "Silver Words", "Heikki's Suburbia Bus Tour", "I Think Of You", "To Whom It May Concern", "Halfway Up The Stairs", and "Cause". LP, Vinyl record album

New Quincy JonesComplete Quincy Jones – My Journeys & Passions – Photos, Letters, Memories & More From Q's Personal Collection (hardcover) ... Book
Insight, 2008. New Copy Book ... Out Of Stock
A very cool book – not just a biography on Quincy Jones, but one that's filled with photos, letters, and other things from his personal collection – plus some very cool "artifacts" as well! The volume's put together like a mini-museum of Q's life – and features pull-out treasures from different periods of his life – little surprises that are hidden in envelopes and jackets, to be discovered as you turn the page – making the reading of the book almost like an archeological dig into Jones' rich career! The artifacts are reproduced wonderfully – record covers, letters, and lots more – all in full color, in this oversized book that's every bit as visually enjoyable as an old Quincy Jones record! 140 pages, hardcover – but with lots more inside to expand the page count too.

New VariousWorld Ends – Afro Rock & Psychedelia In 1970s Nigeria ... CD
Soundway (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
One of the coolest collections of rare psychedelia we've heard in a while from anywhere in the world – this one focusing on Afro Rock & psych from 70s Nigeria – among the greatest releases to date on the Soundway label, which only does great work! The music has the touchstone elements of raw garage funk & rock sounds from around the globe at the time – fuzzed out guitars and organs, searing solos, hard grooving rhythms and passionate vocals. But the guitars and rhythms are uniquely African, too, with highlife and Afrobeat gestures along with the global psychedelic soul sounds. 33 tracks on 2CDs: "Nwantini/Die Die" by The Ify Jerry Krusade, "Rough Rider" by The Hygrades, "Yem Efe" by Tony Grey Super 7, "Ikoko" yb Eppi Fanio, "All Night Long" by Bongos Ikwue, "Babalawo" by The Thermometers, "Eti Ufok" by The Ceejebs, "Active Action" by The Action 13, "Onye Ije" by The Strangers, "Bullwalk" by The Comrades, "Egwu Aja" by Ofo The Black Company and more. Comes with a great booklet of notes and the always top shelf Soundway treatment in general. Perfection! CD

New GuelewarHalleli N'Dakarou ... CD
Teranga Beat (Senegal), 1982. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great live recording of Banjul, Gambia's Guelewar group – captured at the Canari Club de Kaolack in Senegal in 1982! Guelewar is considered one of the more experimental groups of the region, but that's not to say that there sound is any less hypnotic or danceable – it's certainly both those things! The instrumentation is uncommon, and that's a blessing and a highlight of this excellent material. It's got some traditional compositions and inspiration, as filtered through Afro Funk & psychedelia – played with killer drums and percussion, passionate lead and group vocals, guitar, bass and the wildcard element – Mini-Moog, a spacier foil to an otherwise fairly earthy approach! Really cool stuff and very well recorded – it sounds great! Titles include "Yaye Ramoutoulaye", "Bala Jigi", "Tara", "Sanehmentereng", "Ouvaryea", "Halleli N'Dakarou N'Diaye", "Cilss", "President Jawara-Abdou Diouf", "Cheddo" and "Werr Tullali Barr". CD

New NovalimaKarimba ... CD
ESL, 2012. Used ... Out Of Stock
The third proper album from Novalima – proudly repping the ESL label once again with strong set inspired by earthy Afro-Peruvian earthy tradition, though played with modern clarity and club ready urgency. Traditionally minded music fused with modernist sounds and sensibilities isn't always an easy thing to pull off – but Novalima does it just right, no surprise really, given that ESL is one of finest labels out there for like-minded artist. Cajon, bongos, congas, cajita and batajones in the mix with guitar, bass, synth, keys and programming – seamlessly blended – and driven home by passionate male and female vocals. Includes "Festejo", "Mamaye", "Diablo", "Revolucion", "Guayabo", "Luna Ciega", "Hotel BCN", "Zarambe", "Karimba", "A Panar Algodon". CD

New Smokey RobinsonBig Time ... LP
Tamla, 1977. Used ... Out Of Stock
A Smokey Robinson soundtrack to a film that's scarcely remembered – but Smokey's songs are great, his singing passionate and soulful, and the songs work well in a number of soul modes! Some of the material approaches a rave up gospel soul mode, with church ready organs and chorus vocals – plus a four great songs with Smokey on lead vocals such as the stellar "Hip Trip", plus "So Nice To Be With You", "Theme From Big Time" and "If We're Gonna Act Like Lovers". Other tracks include "JJ's Theme", "The Agony And The Ecstasy" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
