New Diga Rhythm BandDiga ... LP
Round/United Artists, 1976. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $7.99
One of Mickey Hart's first forays into the world music genre – and way way better than his later Planet Drum recordings! The Grateful Dead's drummer plays with, and produces, an all-percussion ensemble that includes tablas, marimbas, talking drums, timbales, and congas. All the melody parts are handled by marimba, vibes and talking drums, but there does seem to be some overdubbed guitar on a couple tracks – and although the rhythms are firmly rock-based and the group is quite large, there's a lot of spacious moments and atmosphere in the polyrhythmic grooves – more than enough so to give the record strong appeal to listeners with more globally-tuned ears. 5 tracks in all, most fairly long – "Sweet Sixteen", "Magnificent Sevens", "Razooli", "Tal Mala", and "Happiness Is Drumming". LP, Vinyl record album
(Ryko reissue from the 80s, on clear vinyl in a gatefold cover, with waviness from moisture and a stuck gatefold.)

June PointerBaby Sister (with bonus track) ... CD
Big Break (UK), 1983. New Copy ... $8.99
A sweet solo set from Pointer Sister June – stepping out here on her own, but with a groove that's right up there with her family group's classics for Planet Records! As with those sets, Richard Perry is at the helm here – giving the set a nice mix of class and groove, with perhaps a bit more focus on the sort of sophisticated numbers that work best for June's wide-ranging vocals! And in fact, there's an overall feel here that's a tad less commercial than the Pointer Sisters – still plenty of catchy tunes, to be sure, but maybe not as obvious a move right for the charts. Titles include "Always", "Ready For Some Action", "I Will Understand", "To You My Love", "New Love True Love", and "You Can Do It". Also features a bonus track – a single version of "Ready For Some Action". CD

VariousDiggin' P-Vine – Planet Funk Mixed By DJ Muro ... CD
P-Vine (Japan), 2013. New Copy ... $28.99
DJ Muro normally mixes it up with classic funk and soul – but this time around, he's turned his mighty talents to a host of contemporary tracks from the deep funk underground – work from labels like Timmion, Record Kicks, and other hip indies – woven together here in a totally great blend of heavy drums and raw funky instrumentation! The tracks are all great on their own – but Muro's work really shows us what the right sort of DJ can do with the material – lining up the best breaks and tightest riffs – to come up with a stunning tapestry of sound that's even better than the sum of its funky parts! Tracks include "Soul Investigators Theme" by Nicole Willis & The Soul Investigators, "Kool & The Gang" by Speedometer, "Truck Turner" by Undercover Express, "Purification (parts 1 & 2)" by Funkshone, "Pambiche" by New Cool Collective, "Midnight Feast Of Jazz" by Nick Pride & The Pimptones, "The Ghetto There's No Way Out" by The Soul Immigrants, "With Time" by Katzuma, "Got To Let My Feelings Show" by Bluey, "Stompin Joe" by Mountain Mocha Kilimanjaro, and "Break The Fast" by Eddie Roberts West Coast Sounds. 24 tracks – and 70 minutes of music!

New Ennio MorriconeI Demoni Di San Pietroburgo ... CD
Sugar/Digitmovies (Italy), 2008. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Wonderful late work from Ennio Morricone – penned for a film that was one of his last few soundtrack projects on this planet! The music matches some of the maestro's best period pieces from decades back – done with a style that's got some traces of the time in which the story is set, but always delivered with a personal approach that's pure Morricone – especially once things get going, and the instrumentation is even more spacious and moody! Violin is one of the main solo instruments, but there's also a few nice trumpet parts too – and titles include "New Attack", "The Publisher", "For My Father", "On The River", "The Flag", "Shot", "Pursued", and "For Three". CD
(Limited edition of 1000 copies.)

New Free Pop Electronic ConceptNew Exciting Experience ... CD
Palette/Vampi Soul (Spain), 1969. Used ... Out Of Stock
An amazing album of funky late 60s electronics – one we'd rank right up there with the work of Pierre Henry and Michel Colombier! As with their work, the music here starts from more avant garde sources – particularly the wave in postwar electronic styles and musique concrete – but it also adds in some hipper, groovier rhythms that are much more in a mod late 60s mode – very soul-based styles of instrumentation that mix together with the electronics wonderfully! The core pair behind the record are Antonio and Fernando Lameirinhas – but they're also getting some help from jazzmen Stu Martin and Scott Bradford – the former of whom plays some really wonderful drums on the set. There's an almost psychedelic feel to the album – especially given the length of some of the tunes – but thanks to a tightly rhythmic core at the bottom the tunes never get too out of hand as the jams roll on. Production is great too – with plenty of odd effects and echo – and titles include "Chewing Gum Delerium", "Planetary Gospel", "FPET No 1", "Comos Rhythms", and "Pish Pshaw". CD
