Eilon PazDust & Grooves – Adventures In Record Collection (second edition) ... Book
Dust & Grooves, 2014. New Copy ... Around October 14, 2014 (delayed)
A beautiful photography expedition into some the world's foremost vinyl collections, and interviews with the collectors! Dust & Grooves is an amazing tome for a number of reasons. First and foremost, it's filled with mouth watering, large scale, full color photos of some the most incredible record rooms you'll ever be lucky enough to see. Beyond that, the interviews really get to the heart and soul of what drives the record diggers themselves. It's a varied bunch, including some famous artists and DJs like Gilles Peterson and King Britt, but many more private, but just as passionate collectors. Dust & Grooves creator Eilon Paz is of them – one of us, actually – and his labor of love here is completely wonderful! 400+ pages, in a heavy duty coffee table book format – with a forward by The RZA, and interviews with fellow bonafide creative heavies/record collectors Gilles Peterson, Four Tet, The Gaslamp Killer, Stones Throw/Now Again honcho Egon and many more.

Far Out (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... Early November, 2014
60s bossa and samba treasures compiled by Nicola Conte – Vol 3 in the wonderful, eye-opening and ear-pleasing Viagem series on Far Out – featuring the deepest cuts of the series to date! This third set features gems by Dalmo Castello, Bossa Trio, Claudia, Vera Brasil, Luiz Carlos Sa, Werther, Kazinho and more – from a wider span of material, with recordings ranging from the early 60s up until around 1970, bossa and samba jazz heavy numbers, some quite soaring and others with more rumbling Afro rhythms.

New Beach BoysCarl & the Passions – So Tough/Holland ... CD
Brother/Capitol, 1972/1973. Used 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
2 Beach Boys albums on 2CDs – plus the bonus ep of material from Holland. The Carl & The Passions album was supposed to be a back to basics rocker, but it's a bit weak from this vantage point – although has some of those nice little later numbers that we always seem to overlook when shuffling through BB albums too quickly. Holland is a much more impressive effort – as it kicks off with the sublime "Sail On Sailor", proof that the group were ready to forge a whole new sound of 70s pop, plus a nice mix of tight pop songs and looser Smile-like tracks. Titles include "The Trader", "Funky Pretty", "Only With You", and the "California Saga". The CD also includes "Mount Vernon & Fairway" – a "fairy tale" that was included with the original LP as a bonus ep. The work's interesting – especially in that it shows that the group could still be pretty trippy and experimental – but gosh, we really have a hard time getting through it! CD

New Fania All StarsSan Juan 73 ... CD
Fania, 1973. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The unearthed debut concert of the Fania All Stars in San Juan, and the first ever concert to be held at the Roberto Clemente Coliseum – a blazing set from the vaults of Fania Records seeing release for the first time ever! The Fania stars at hand for the concert is truly exceptional – with Cheo Feliciano, Bobby Cruz, Hector Lavoe, Ismael Miranda, Ismael Quintana, Pete Rodriguez and many more – and it's hard to believe the set's only now being released! With the ultra iconic Live At Yankee Stadium releases of the mid 70s, perhaps the powers at be thought that this recording would get lost in the shadows, but the set is excellent is and really an unearthed treasure – the Fania All Stars in peak form in front of a huge, appreciative audience! Killer percussion and horns throughout, with passionate group and solo vocals – with titles including "Mi Debilidad" with Ismael Quintana, "Que Rico Suena Mi Tambor" with Ismael Miranda, "El Raton" with Cheo Feliciano, "Pueblo Latino" with Pete Rodriguez, "Mi Gente" with Hector Lavoe, "Soy Guajiro". "Soul Makossa" and "Congo Bongo". CD

New Charlie HadenBallad Of The Fallen ... LP
ECM, 1983. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest records that Charlie Haden ever did, and a record that stands as sort of a bookend to his Liberation Music album on Impulse. As with that record, he's got a large group on here, and also like that one, he's playing a batch of tracks that have a definite political bent. Players include Don Cherry, Carla Bley, Dewey Redman, Paul Motian, Jim Pepper, and Michael Mantler; and tracks include "Ballad Of The Fallen", "Too Late", "La Pasionaria", and "The People United Will Never Be Defeated". The sound's a little bit less harsh than his Impulse recording, but it's no less impassioned, and the record's a very emotional batch of music. LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear, a cutout hole, and a bit of pen.)

New VariousThose Shocking Shaking Days – Indonesian Hard Psychedelic Progressive Rock & Funk 1970 to 1978 ... CD
Now Again, 1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A truly incredible overview of 70s Indonesian funk, rock and psychedelia infused recordings – and it's beautifully put together, to boot – one of the very best compilations yet from Stones Throw's Now Again branch! There's an undercurrent of funk to most of this material, but it's always topped off with prog & psych rhythmic heaviness and dexterity, and usually done with passionate, feverish vocals. The story of Indonesian underground music of the time is a complicated one, and one that's been hard to come by outside of the region, given the difficult political circumstances of the time. This amazing set does a tremendous service for this music. Essential! Includes "Haai" by Panbers, "Anti Gandja" by The Brims, "Bad News" by Rollies, "People" by Super Kid", "Evil War" by Shark Move, "Shake Me" by Aja, "The Promise" by Rhythm Kids, "Uang" by Duo Kribo, "Pantun Lama" by Murry Lama, "Hear Me" by Golden Wing, "Candle Light" by Beny Soebardja And Lizard and more. CD
(Packaged with a thick, oversized booklet of notes and photos. A completely terrific set from the sounds to the packaging!)

New ChakachasJungle Fever '75/Liza (And Brook) ... 7-inch
Polydor, 1975. Used ... Out Of Stock
Obscure stuff from Chakachas – and did these ever come out on an album? "Jungle Fever '75" is apparently a remake, but it sounds the same as the original to us – perhaps with slight differences. Who cares, though? The track's a killer funky number, and it's always in demand! "Liza & Brook" is in the group's "Stories" format – with a slow slinky groove, punctuated by instrumental flourishes, and in this case, featuring the passionate contact of two lovers, the masculine one of whom keeps saying "Oh Liza!" 7-inch, Vinyl record

New J DillaShining ... LP
BBE (UK), 2006. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A glorious send off from J Dilla – with some of the most soulful productions Dilla's ever laid down – and appearances by Common, D'Angelo, Pharoahe Monch, Madlib, MED, Black Thought and others! It's impossible to listen to The Shining without considering the sad circumstances surrounding its release, and all too easy to over praise, but this record is filled timelessly inventive production – and passionate rhymes from the honored guests. A lot of the more leftfield, abstract touches that create most of the character on the Donuts LP are really on the outskirts of the sound here – a much richer, deeper, funky drum influenced batch of sounds. We're speechless. There's one more official posthumous LP in the can, and thank goodness for that. Tracks include in-your-f**kin' face intro "Geek Down" with Busta Rhymes, "E=MC2" feat Common, "Love Jones", "Love" feat Pharoahe Monch, "Baby" feat Madlib & Guilty Simpson, "So Far To Go" feat Common & D'Angelo (come back D', the world needs you), "Jungle Love" feat MED & Guilty Simpson, "Dime Piece (Remix)" feat Dwele, "Love Movin'" feat Black Thought and "Won't Do".

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 VariousGo Devil Go – Raw & Rare Otherworldly African American Gospel 1944 to 1976 ... LP
Jerome (Spain), Late 40s/1950s/1960s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The devil's on the run in this special vinyl collection of vintage gospel work – music pulled from the larger CD collection Fire In My Bones! The set's filled with gloriously soulful and passionate postwar gospel – and the CD was one of the best ever compilations on the Tompkins Square label – shining a powerful light on rare African American church recordings, street corner sermon style numbers, choir backed testifying soul & blues, and straight up wonderful spiritual soul music all the way! The tunes range from the mid-to-late 1940s through the 1970s for the most part, with a few later recordings – and part of what's so inspiring about it is the disregard of formality to the program. It has crackly field recordings of congregations, reverends and choirs, back porch gospel blues, and more polished, but no less passionate recordings – the common thread being the raw, honest devotion and deeply felt soulfulness of it. Hats off to producer, compiler Mike McGonigal for putting together such an excellent set, and for his concise, but well done notes on each track. LP, Vinyl record album

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.

New Ali Ag AmoumineTakamba (with bonus 7-inch) ... LP
Sahel Sounds/Mississippi, 2011. New Copy LP & 7Inch ... Out Of Stock
A really wonderful document of of the Takamba style of music in Northern Mali and Niger – passionate, energetic and hypnotically performed by Ali Ag Amoumine! Ali's home is in Timbouctou, a couple hundred kilometers upriver from the Takamba region, and it was here that this excellent recording by Christopher Kirkley took place. It's essentially traditional regional guitar music, electrified and played in droning, wholly entrancing patterns, while the rhythm is played on the calabash. The songs here are described as being informed by Ali's travels and including his own compositions, and it does have inimately personal feel, while also pulling us in strictly on the basis of the soaring, hypnotic sounds. Includes "Adernibah", "Khomeissa", "Fatimatou", "Damara", "Kalitay", "Hali Diallo", "Taliat Nouhirase", "Nouvelle Annee" and "Mali". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes a bonus 7-inch with the non-album tracks "Amidinine" plus "Hali Diallo".)

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
