New Public Image Ltd.Flowers Of Romance ... LP
Warner, 1981. Sealed .... Just Sold Out!
Primitive, thumping drums that bring on some kind of blunt force hypnosis – only to get snapped back into hyper conscious tension by Lydon's menacing vocals – Public Image Ltd's post Jah Wobble Flowers Of Romance! Flowers isn't the legendary synthesis of punk & dub that Metal Box/Second Edition was, particularly since the dubby bits left with Jah Wobble, but it's still a tense, minimalist work of vibrant originality – and a record that stands to time incredibly well. Titles include "Four Enclosed Walls", "Track 8", "Flowers Of Romance", "Under The House", "Hymie's Him", "Banging The Door", "Go Back" and "Francis Massacre". LP, Vinyl record album

New Public Image Ltd.Public Image – First Issue (2CD deluxe edition) ... CD
Virgin/Light In The Attic, 1978. New Copy 2 CDs Gatefold .... Out Of Stock
The bracing debut of Public Image Itd! First Issue is seriously one of the most stunning post punk albums of its time – and we think it's light years ahead of the Sex Pistols in terms of boundless creativity and originality. Given that the Pistols disintegrated mere months before First Issue was issued, this album is all the more amazing for how hugely different Public Image is – different from Lydon's own earlier revolutionary punk act and different from absolutely everything else on the late 70s landscape. The dissonant, driving post punk guitars and sneering vocals are recognizable, sure, but the dubby textures and more angular touches are so far outside the box and so hugely influential that it's hard to fathom myriad underground rock acts existing without it. Vital! This excellent 2CD expanded edition from Light In The Attic includes an hour long BBC interview from 1978 – and if you know anything about Mr. Lydon, you know that he's one hell of an interview – plus the rare B-Side "Cowboy Song". Other titles include "Theme", "Religion", "Religion II", "Annalisa", "Public Image", "Low Life", "Attack" and "Fodderstompf". CD

DupreeNuestro Camino ... CD
Public Hi Fi, 2013. New Copy .... $11.99
A heavy record with a heavy pedigree – a smoking set of funky instrumentals, all recorded directly to tape! The trio has a hard-burning sound that takes us back to the Prestige records jazz funk sound of the early 70s – the sort of groove you might have heard from Leon Spencer or Melvin Sparks – with Mike Flanigin on sweet Hammond, Jake Langley on smoking guitar, and Kyle Thompson driving the whole thing with some mighty fierce drums! The CD version has a few great cover versions on top of the solid Dupree originals – and the titles include "The Turtle", "Malibu Classic", "KC", "Moto Guzzi", "Leon's Thing", a great take on the Bacharach/David classic "Close To You", Tina Brooks' "David The King", Horace Silver's "Cookin' At The Continental" and more, 10 tracks on the CD.

Les BaxterFruit Of Dreams (Ports Of Pleasure/The Sacred Idol) ... CD
Capitol/El (UK), 1957/1960. New Copy .... $6.99
2 rare slices of exotica by Les Baxter – back to back on one CD! The first half of the set features material from the album Ports Of Pleasure – a dreamy exploration of south sea ideals that's got a more lightly drifting quality than some of Baxter's more percussive exotica albums, and which is awash in dreamy soundscapes penned by Les himself! The orchestrations are large and bold throughout – mixing strings and woodwinds almost in a soundtrack-y mode – but always with the light sense of interplay that makes Baxter's work so great. Titles include "Monkey Dance Of Bali", "Pearls Of Ceylon", "Tahiti A Summer Night At Sea", "Hong Kong Cable Car", "Tramp Steamer To Singapore", "Harem Silks From Bombay", and "Sidewalk Cafes Of Saigon". The Sacred Idol is a real standout set from the end of Les Baxter's run at Capitol Records – originally scored for a film that was never released, but a great set of tracks that more than stands strongly on its own! The theme here is a Mexican/Latin American one – explored by Baxter with his trademark blend of larger orchestrations and lighter exotica touches – often swirling around in an extremely evocative mode that makes us wish the film had been issued to the public, and at a few key moments even hinting at the funkier modes that would follow on some of Les' later work for other labels. Titles include "Aqueducts", "Gardens Of The Moon", "Pyramid Of The Sun", "Temple Of Gold", and "Procession Of The Princes". CD

The latter is represented by the classics "Public Enemy #1" and "King Heroin", both hard soul political tracks. The funk is represented by "Talkin' Loud & Sayin' Nothing", "There It Is", and James's version of "I Need Help" (which was also recorded by Bobby Byrd).

Frederick Burr OpperHappy Hooligan – The Original Born Loser (hardcover) ... Book
NBM, 1900s/Early 10s/2008. New Copy .... $6.99 24.95
Beautiful reproductions of vintage Happy Hooligan strips from the start of the 20th Century – some of the first and best newspaper comic work, all presented here in full color! The book features almost 100 strips that each follow the six-panel style used by Frederick Opper – and in addition to a manic visual style, they also offer a surprising insight into class conflict and public space in urban scenes in the early part of the century. The book begins with some biographical information on Opper and the strip – then rolls into some nice oversized horizontal pages that really preserve the smaller details in the drawings and text. 110 pages, hardcover, full color.

New Ornette ColemanLove Call ... CD
Blue Note, 1968. Used .... $19.99
One of the two quartet sessions that Ornette cut for Blue Note in the late 60's – and tight mature work like the New York Is Now sides, recorded in the company of Dewey Redman and the Coltrane rhythm section of Jimmy Garrison and Elvin Jones, which offers a contrasting perspective to most of the preceding Coleman groups. Ornette plays alto and trumpet, as he was doing around that time, and Redman's playing is amongst his finest on record. Four tunes: the title track, "Airborne", "Check Out Time", and "Open To The Public". CD includes 3 bonus alternate takes, too! CD

Bold, righteous work from Ornette Coleman – an album that really shows the more open energy he'd taken on at the end of the 60s – a sense of new fire and unbridled energy that makes the album a non-stop powerhouse all the way through! In addition to Ornette's own smoking work on alto, the album also features killer tenor from a young Dewey Redman – and driving rhythms from the Coltrane team of Jimmy Garrison on bass and Elvin Jones on drums – quite a contrast to the rhythm players used on other Ornette records. Ornette also plays a bit of trumpet – and titles include "Love Call", "Airborne", "Check Out Time", and "Open To The Public". CD includes bonus tracks – "Just For You", plus alternates of "Love Call" and "Check Out Time". CD

New John CorbettSun Ra & Aye Aton – Space, Interiors, & Exteriors 1972 ... Book
Corbett vs. Dempsey, 2013. New Copy .... $19.99 27.99
Amazing images from the universe of Sun Ra – a mixture of rare photographs and mural images painted by Aye Aton – sometime percussionist with the Arkestra, and a heck of a great painter too! The book begins with these stunning full color photographs of Ra on the set of Space Is The Place – images from 1972 that echo the cover of the album of the same name, but which feature a costumed Ra in a number of different settings – including a few parking lot shots that make him look like a true visitor from the cosmos, briefly walking on our planet! The bigger second half of the book features photographs of murals painted by Aton (who's also known as Robert Underwood) – all of them spacey and trippy, and in a similar spirit to the Saturn Records album covers – except these were all painted on walls and ceilings, in very vivid colors. Aye painted many images in the Arkestra commune in Philly – and other paintings appear to be from the south side of Chicago – and all work here is seen by the wider public for the first time ever. Archivist John Corbett provides an essay with the book to situate the work – and the whole thing's a vivid visual treat for any fan of Sun Ra! Book

Andre CymoneAC (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia/Big Break (UK), 1985. New Copy .... $14.99
The best of a handful of albums that the one-time Prince bassist put out in the early 80s – a record that made a splash via the great Prince-penned "The Dance Electric" – possibly a blessing and a curse for AC, as Prince was so huge at the time that the record going public was too quick to dismiss him as a clone! But don't let that stop you – as Cymone's got a groove that's all his own – and an 80s soul star definitely worth rediscovering. The percussive vibe is similar to Prince, but Andre's got a leaner, funkier style overall – virtually working as a one man band here, and handling most instrumentation himself – which brings a compact feel to the record that really comes through in the tightness of the grooves. Titles include "The Dance Electric", "Lipstick Lover", "Pretty Wild Lover", "Book Of Love", "Vacation", "Satisfaction", and "Neon Pussycat". This Big Break remastered edition has 5 bonus tracks: "Fallin' Fallin", "Red Light", "The Dance Electric (Single Version)", "Lipstick Lover (12" Club Version)" and "Satisfaction (12" Club Version)".

Dischi Della Quercia/Black Saint (Italy), 1970s/1980s. New Copy 11 CDs .... $84.99
A huge body of work from Italian pianist Giorgio Gaslini – material recorded for his own Dischi Della Quercia – a later imprint that really gave him the chance to express himself in a great number of ways! There's some really special albums on the set – records that include some key duet sessions – one with trombonist Roswell Rudd, one with altoist Anthony Braxton, and one with bassist Eddie Gomez – and some key group outings with some of the best younger Italian players, grouped together under Gaslini's mature direction, in pursuit of a range of sounds that run the gamut from traditional jazz modes to more avant sounds to some compelling Eastern experiments too. The package brings together 11 full albums, many of which we haven't seen on CD in a long long time – the records Murales, New Orleans Suite, Free Actions, Graffitti, Sharing, Live At The Public Theater, Ecstasy, Four Pieces, Indian Suite, Monodrama, and Skies Of China.

Richard L GrahamGovernment Issue – Comics For The People 1940s to 2000s (paperback) ... Book
Abrams Comic Arts, 2009. New Copy Book .... $6.99 29.95
Cool comics from a very unlikely source – publications put together by the US government to spread ideas and inform the public – many of which were handled by top comics talents from the mainstream! The quality of this material is surprisingly wonderful – not schlocky propaganda, but thoughtfully-scripted, well-penned comics that have the same sort of appeal as work from the cleaner, more wholesome side of the Silver Age! Artists include Neal Adams, Charles Biro, Kurt Schaffenberger, Joe Kubert, Milt Caniff, and many others – including a fair bit of unknown illustrators too. The book is surprisingly fun, and a much-needed look at this lesser-known strand of 20th Century comics. 308 pages, full color, and softcover. Book

Michel MagneSerie OSS 117 ... CD
Universal (France), Mid 60s. New Copy .... $14.99
Groovy 60s spy soundtrack work – with a mod French twist! The CD documents a series of excellent scores by French composer Michel Magne – written for a run of mid 60s films based around the character of OSS 117 – a James Bond-like secret agent known to the French public through a series of 242 successful novels! The scope of OSS 117's adventures was large – as globe-spanning as that of James Bond, a fact that gave Magne plenty of room to throw in cool exotic, groovy, and jazzy elements to the soundtracks – in a style that was ultimately a heck of a lot more lively than that of John Barry, and which easily matches the best 60s soundtrack work of Lalo Schifrin, Jerry Goldsmith, or Hugo Montenegro! We'd honestly never heard any of these tracks before – but our love of Magne led us to the set, and we were certainly rewarded – as the 23 track package is overflowing with incredibly groovy tunes, and has the feel of some of the best Crippled Dick collections from years past! The four films on the set include OSS 117 Se Dechaine, Banco A Bangkok Pour OSS 117, Furia A Bahia Pour OSS 117, and Atout Coeur A Tokyo Pour OSS 117 – and titles include "OSS 117 Hully Gully", "Banco A Bangkok", "Poursuite Thailandaise", "Hubert Rit Jaune", "Samba Furiosa", and "Slow Du Soleil Levant" – as well as a bonus remix track by Roudoudou!

Ennio MorriconeQuattro Mosche Di Velluto Grigio – The Four Velvet Flies (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1971. New Copy .... $15.99
A fantastically dark Morricone score! Morricone originally wrote this material for the film Quattro Mosche Di Velluto Grigio, the third part of Dario Argento's cult terror trilogy – and until the release of this CD reissue, only 2 of the tracks ever made it to the public, on a rare single issued by Cinevox in 1971. The leadoff track – "4 Mosche Di Vellutto Grigio (titoli)" – is actually a bit funky, with some very heavy drums and cascading fuzzy guitar riffs that sound very nice. Then, the CD moves into spookier material – like the cut "Come Un Madrigale", and a number of self-titled themes – all of which feature strange harpsichord work, dark orchestral passages, and some very spooky production work! Fortunately, the score ends on an upbeat note – a hard driving, beat group sounding version of the main theme that's a nice cap to the whole package! This CD also includes 3 bonus tracks! CD

The crunching pre-power pop of Nazz isn't as legendary with the general public as it should be – but if you're down with the Nazz this CD is a fine companion piece to the early LPs.

Disc 2 features a handful of 1966 demos by Woody's Truck Stop featuring Todd Rundgren – including "That's Right, You're Wrong", "Why Is It Me", "The Times Have Changed", "She Must Be Blind" and "Rock Me Baby".

We've been digging America's public radio alternative for decades – and it's great to finally get our hands on a book that serves up the full picture that we might have missed while listening to something else – a rich story of the network and its stations, with contributions from folks like Cokie Roberts, Ari Shaprio, Renee Montagne, David Sedaris, Scott Simon, PJ O'Rourke, and many others. The book's full of photos and color images – and features lots of sidebars and detours along the way – with special bits on key contributors and historical moments too.

Stark RealityNow ... CD
Stones Throw, 1969. Used .... $8.99
One of the most tripped-out albums of funk you'll ever buy – a rare treasure with a very unusual history! The Stark Reality were a cool little combo formed to work on public television in Boston in the late 60s – and the combo featured some heavy guitars, fuzzed-up vibes, and some monster percussion laid out in tight bass and drum rhythms that were years ahead of their time! The group recorded one rare album – ostensibly a children's record, but based around old compositions by Hoagy Carmichael, completely pulled apart, sliced up, overly harmonized, and spat out into wild funky tunes that bear no resemblance to their originals! The original album – Stark Reality Discovers Hoagy Carmichael's Music Shop – has been a holy grail for collectors for years (we once sold a copy for hundreds of dollars!), and the music has only ever really been heard by a few dedicated beatheads that have tracked down rare copies. Now, though, the geniuses at Stones Throw have put out the whole LP, plus bonus material, in one fantastic package that is soon to make the Stark Reality legends amongst funky fans the world over! Mad vibes meet fuzzy guitars meet killer funky beats – and the whole thing's a masterpiece that will never be duplicated again! Tracks include "Too Much Tenderness", "Sunday's Song", "Roller Coaster Ride", "Say Brother", "Rocket Ship", "All You Need To Make Music", "Junkman's Song", and "Thirty Days Hath September". CD

New VariousNuggets – Antipodean Interpolations Of The First Psychedelic Era ... LP
Warner (Australia), 2012. New Copy 2LP Gatefold .... $34.99
A contemporary collection, but one that really lives up to the spirits of the legendary Nuggets collection – as the artists here each pick a favorite track from that garage and pysch powerhouse, then deliver their own very faithful versions! The set's got an extra special twist – given that it was released at the same time as the wonderful Australian version of Nuggets, which includes many lost Aussie gems from the 60s – and the artists here are all from the contemporary Australian underground, but every bit as awash in fuzz, freak, and echo as their American counterparts from the 60s! Both production styles and instrumentation are very faithful to the original 60s styles – and titles include "Don't Look Back" by Palms, "I Had Too Much To Dream Last Night" by Velociraptor, "Dirty Water" by Pearls, "Psychotic Reaction" by The Murlocs, "Baby Please Don't Go" by Baptism Of Uzi, "My World Fell Down" by Montero, "You're Gonna Miss Me" by The Laurels, "Farmer John" by Bloods, "Hey Joe" by Pond, and "A Public Execution" by Tiny Migrants. 2LP set features more tracks than the CD – and is limited and numbered too!

VariousScoctopus – The In Sound From Octopus Records ... CD
Schema (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy .... $22.99
A legendary set of sound library grooves – and actually one of the first to kick off the genre! The package brings together rare tracks from the small Italian Octopus label – not nearly as well-known as De Wolfe, KPM, or other sound library giants – but an equally great source of rare funky jazz cuts that were never issued to the public at the time – recorded as part of the huge wave of studio activity in Italy during the 60s and 70s! Given that the set was collected by Schema, you can bet that the tracks are right on the money – and titles include "Curly" by Stellio Subelli, "Sculturea Beat" by Angelo Baroncini, "Diacromeico" by Sandro Brugnolini, "Games" by Pasquale Castiglione, "First Black" by Mario Molino, "Maze" by Roberto Conrado, and "Verso L'Infinito" by Alessandro Alessondroni.

New Pete SeegerRainbow Race/Now/Young Vs Old ... CD
Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD .... Early May, 2014
A trio of later LPs from the incalculably important topical folk stalwart and archivist Pete Seeger – 1971's Rainbow Race, 68's Now and '69's Young Vs Old – plus a holy grail of a bonus track – bundled in this excellent 2CD set from Omni! Rainbow Race starts out disc 1, an album that's understated in production, but feels more modern than many of Seeger's albums, and it's both massive in mood and masterful in material. It's stocked largely with Seeger originals rather than the shared folk songbook he so often worked within – with titles including "Last Train To Nuremburg", "Sailing Down This Golden River", "Old Devil Time", "Words Words Words" and more. It's followed by Now – another great record with more banjo in the sound, and more diverse songs – with modern folk scene standards, talking blues and public domain revisitations, strident and in a live setting, with "Adam The Inventor", "Talking Ben Tre", Blacklash Blues", "Cotton Needs Pickin So Bad", "The Cities Are Burning" and more. Young Vs Old follows a similar trail, with some bigger emotions as well as sparer numbers, with titles including "Who Knows", "Bring The Home", "Ballad Of The Fort Hood Three", "Be Kind To Your Parents", "Get Up And Go", "Mayrowana" and more. Last and certainly not least, the bonus track "I Feel Like I'm Fixin To Die Rag" – a killer version of the defiant, Anti Vietnam War sing-along standard that was purportedly banned in 1970 and released officially for the first time ever on this CD!

Sonny MurraySonny's Time Now ... CD
DIW (Japan), 1965. Used .... Just Sold Out!
A long-lost treasure, finally made available to the public! This rare session has always been one of the holy grails of avant collectors – and was only ever issued briefly, on Leroi Jones' tiny Jihad label during the mid 60s. This CD brings back the impossible-to-find material – an all-star New York avant session that's very much in the ESP tradition. Sunny Murray leads a group that includes Don Cherry, Albert Ayler, and Henry Grimes – and Leroi Jones does a bit of recitation, as he did on the classic New York Art Quartet album for ESP. Titles include "Virtue", "Justice", "Black Art", and "The Lie". CD

VariousMontparnasse 2000 – Anthology Of A French Library Label ... CD
Pulp Flavor/Dare Dare (France), 1970s. New Copy .... Just Sold Out!
A treasure trove of rare grooves you've probably never heard before – all pulled from the tiny, but excellent, catalog of Montparnasse 2000, a super-hip French sound library label! Most of these tracks were never issued formally to the public – only recorded to serve as backings in radio, TV, and commercial use – but that doesn't stop them from being some really great funky grooves, especially as most of them were performed by some of France's best funky jazzmen of the time! There's a sweet 70s groove that bubbles through the whole set – lots of funky drums, choppy guitar, sweet keyboards, and other classic instrumental touches – and since the Montparnasse catalog has been virtually untapped until now, nearly every track is super-fresh to our ears! Titles include "Turn In Around" by Willy Albimoor, "SOS 17" by Guy Pedersen, "Violence" by Caiage, "OK Richard" by Sylvano Santorio, "Don't Be Cool" by Jacky Giordano, "Danger" by Rene Costy, "Grand Roque" by Maurice Vander, "Vision Pop" by JJ Rober & JM Guise, and "Catalepsy" by Eric Framond.

Very very very cool stuff from Italy in the 70's. This tight little combo featuring Fender Rhodes, electric bass, and congas lays down some super tight grooves with a very deep, very funky, very laid back feel. Originally intended for soundtrack use in TV and commercials, this disc has finally been released to the public, and it's been worth the wait! As great as the words "Fender Rhodes", "Italy", and "congas" might suggest, and even better upon repeated listenings. Some tracks have a slightly Latin feel, while others sound like super mellow CTI grooves. Excellent stuff, and it's hardly been off our turntable this month! CD

New June ChristyGone For The Day (plus Fair & Warmer) ... CD
Capitol, 1957. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Vocalist June Christy is one of the greatest under-recognized talents of the postwar era, and it's great to see that reissue CDs like this are finally getting her work back into the public again! Both albums on this CD were recorded in 1957, with arrangements by the icy genius Pete Rugolo, who worked earlier with Christy on her legendary Something Cool album. The records are both filled with haunting vocal tracks, twisted by Rugolo into complicated arrangements, and sung by Christy with a deep sense of sorrow and loneliness, masked by a weak smile that only seems to further emphasize Christy's inner pain. Titles include "When The Sun Comes Out", "It's So Peaceful In the Country", "When You Awake", "Better Luck Next Time", and "No More". 24 tracks in all – what a deal! CD

New Miles DavisLive At The Fillmore East – It's About That Time ... CD

Previously-unreleased live work by one of Miles Davis' most important groups ever – a Bitches Brew-era lineup, playing live at the Fillmore East a month before the record was released to the public – which makes this performance one of the first times the world had ever heard jams like this! The group's heavy on rhythm here – a rumbling groove brought up from the bottom, courtesy of the drums of Jack Dejohnette, basses of Dave Holland, and percussion of Airto – sewn together beautifully by the Fender Rhodes work of Chick Corea – easily some of the noisiest sounds the instrument ever produced! Miles plays trumpet, and Wayne Shorter's on soprano and tenor sax – on titles that include "Directions", "Spanish Key", "Masqualero", "Miles Runs The Voodoo Down", "Bitches Brew", and "It's About That Time/Willie Nelson".

New Bob DylanAnother Side of Bob Dylan ... CD
Columbia, 1964. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Bob's fourth record, and close runner up to Freewheelin' as the masterpiece of this early stage of his career. While the overly arch Times They Are A Changin' pretty much stood as the cornerstone of classifiable folk rock at the time, Another Side is just that. Dense, elliptical, and downright surreal at times, with some of the protesty stuff that made the media so happy & hungry, but much more layered and poetic. Another side is also much more reverent of and indebted to the Harry Smith field recordings that Bob studied so hard, the stuff that finally caught on with the general public in the early 90s. Titles include "Spanish Harlem Incident", "It Ain't Me Babe", "Ballad In Plain D", "Black Crow Blues", "I Don't Believe You", "Motorpsycho Nitemare", "To Ramona", "Chimes Of Freedom", "My Back Pages", and "I Shall Be Free No 10".

New Gil Evans/Gary McFarlandDedication Series IX – The Great Arrangers (Out Of The Cool/Profiles) ... LP
Impulse, 1960/1966. Used 2LP Gatefold .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great 2LP set – with two classic albums on Impulse! First is Gil Evans' Out Of The Cool – a pivotal session for Gil – one that brought his genius to the American public strongly and successfully, without the help of Miles Davis! Sure, Gil had recorded albums as a leader before this one – but the sparkling quality of this set is right up there with the charts he handled for Miles, and the quality of the players in the group make the performance every bit as great. Gil's band includes trumpeter Johnny Coles, plus Ron Carter on bass, Elvin Jones on drums, Budd Johnson on tenor, and Ray Crawford on guitar. Titles include "Stratusphunk", "Sunken Treasure", "La Nevada", and a great reading of Kurt Weil's "Bilbao Song". Next is Gary McFarland's Profiles – a great little jazz record by Gary – very different than his groovy/easy albums on Verve, and with a dark sound that shows his strength as a composer and arranger. The group features McFarland in the lead on vibes, plus reed work by Phil Woods, Zoot Sims, and Richie Kamuca, and lots of rhythm backing by the likes of Richard Davis, Gabor Szabo, Sam Brown, and others. Willis Conover does a bit of narration, and tracks include "Sage Hands", "Milo's Other Samba", "Winter Colors", and "Bygones & Boogie". LP, Vinyl record album

Yet Thais Gulin is clearly the main draw here – a really lovely, inventive singer with a freshness that comes through on the very first tune – the haunting string of "ooo" sounds in the title, set to sounds that are earthy enough to be earnest, yet gentle enough to sensitively deliver Thais to the public. The rest of the record follows with a similar balance between charm and creative expression – and titles include "Little Boxes", "Encantada", "Cinema Americano", "The Glory Hole", "Agua", "Horas Cariocas", "Se Eu Soubesse", and "Revendo Amigos".

Nasir, "World Is Yours", indeed. Other tracks include "NY State Of Mind", "Life's A B***h", "Half Time", "One Love" and the rest, with all of that great production by Primo, Pete Rock and Large Professor.

Vocals are dropped in at just the right time, but the instrumental interplay is what really makes the record special – over many short tracks that include "Mr Green Genes", "We Can Shoot You", "Dog Breath Variations", "Sleeping In A Jar", "The Legend Of The Golden Arches", "Uncle Meat", "Cruising For Burgers", and "King Kong" in many variations.

The set's got an extra special twist – given that it was released at the same time as the wonderful Australian version of Nuggets, which includes many lost Aussie gems from the 60s – and the artists here are all from the contemporary Australian underground, but every bit as awash in fuzz, freak, and echo as their American counterparts from the 60s! Both production styles and instrumentation are very faithful to the original 60s styles – and titles include "Don't Look Back" by Palms, "I Had Too Much To Dream Last Night" by Velociraptor, "Dirty Water" by Pearls, "Psychotic Reaction" by The Murlocs, "Baby Please Don't Go" by Baptism Of Uzi, "My World Fell Down" by Montero, "You're Gonna Miss Me" by The Laurels, "Farmer John" by Bloods, "Hey Joe" by Pond, and "A Public Execution" by Tiny Migrants.

Wonderful work from both Buddy Collette and Irene Kral – initially recorded for the Navy Swings radio show in the early 60s, and finally presented here to the public on CD! The tracks all feature Buddy's early 60s quintet with Al Viola on guitar and Jack Wilson on piano – and Buddy himself is very strongly the lead soloist in the set, stepping away from some of the more tightly arranged modes of his albums of the 50s, and hitting some wonderfully spontaneous moments on flute, clarinet, tenor, and alto sax. Wilson's piano is as lovely and lyrical as on his best albums as a leader from the time, and provides perfect accompaniment to Kral on the album's vocal tracks – which comprised 6 of the CD's total 14 numbers. Kral tunes include "The Meaning Of The Blues", "Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most", "Detour Ahead", and "It's A Wonderful World" – and instrumental tunes include "A Taste Of Fresh Air", "Hunt & Peck", "Emaline's Theme", "Road Trip", and "Soft Touch".

Milestone, 1959/1962. Used .... Out Of Stock
Lost Bill Evans material from his tremendous early run on Riverside Records – sessions recorded in 1959, but unreleased to the public for many years! The core of the record features Evans working with Paul Chambers on bass and Philly Joe Jones both rhythm players that Bill interacted with while working in the Miles Davis group, and a strongly-voiced team to echo the sense of space and timing that was the particular Evans touch in the early days. Why these tracks never came out is a real mystery to us – because Bill's still very much at the top of his game, despite having not liked the material at the time of recording – and the Chambers/Jones rhythm section give the tunes a very solid focus throughout. Titles include "You & The Night & The Music", "My Heart Stood Still", "On Green Dolphin Street", "How Am I To Know", and 2 takes of "Woody N You". Added to that number is a really surprising bonus – a 1962 recording of "Loose Bloose", done with Jim Hall on guitar and Zoot Soms on alto – making for one of those rare non-trio dates by Evans! CD

New Jazz On The Latin Side All-StarsJazz On The Latin Side All-Stars Vol 1 ... CD
CuBop/Ubiquity, 2000. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
An excellent set that's a fitting tribute to the genius of the West Coast Latin Scene! For as many years as New York's been a hot city for Latin jazz, Los Angeles has also had an excellent scene, filled with many talented players – but it's always been eclipsed in the history books because of a New York-centrism in reissues, compilations, and general writing on Latin music. However, one of the strongest forces to change this Big Apple-bias in Latin fans has been the groundbreaking Jazz On The Latin Side radio program – which for the past decade has provided public radio with broadcasts of live sets that show the rich amount of talent on the west coast. On the 10th anniversary of the show, a host of great players teamed up to cut this live set for Cubop in LA – including Justo Almario, Francisco Aguabella, Alex Acuna, Otmario Ruiz, Poncho Sanchez, and many others. The music is sophisticated Latin jazz, drenched in the soulful history that separates west coast Latin – especially that of the 70s – from its east coast counterpart. The playing is great, and the record is way more than a loose roots-oriented jam session. Higlights include the massive 15 minute "Descarga Cachao", plus original compositions "Mujer Chicana", "Shortcuts", and "Arabian Moods", which were all written by Jose Rizo, the host of the Jazz On The Latin Side program. Great stuff – and another winner for Cubop! CD

A fantastically dark Morricone score! Morricone originally wrote this material for the film Quattro Mosche Di Velluto Grigio, the third part of Dario Argento's cult terror trilogy – and until the release of this reissue, only 2 of the tracks ever made it to the public, on a rare single issued by Cinevox in 1971. The leadoff track – "4 Mosche Di Vellutto Grigio (titoli)" – is actually a bit funky, with some very heavy drums and cascading fuzzy guitar riffs that sound very nice. Then, the record moves into spookier material – like the cut "Come Un Madrigale", and a number of self-titled themes – all of which feature strange harpsichord work, dark orchestral passages, and some very spooky production work! Fortunately, the score ends on an upbeat note – a hard driving, beat group sounding version of the main theme that's a nice cap to the whole package! LP, Vinyl record album

Galt's best known to most of the world as the man who wrote the music for Hair, but to us beatheads, the best stuff is his rare work – a wealth of incredible drumbreaks, basslines, piano riffs, and quirky rhythms – recorded for years on his own, finally now getting out to the public! This album's almost better than the first volume – as it's filled with stripped down instrumental cuts that feature plenty of drums (by either Idris Muhammad or Bernard Purdie), electric keyboards, and other instrumentation like flute or guitar. A few cuts have vocals, but even those are nice and funky – and honestly, the album's maybe even better all the way through than most of Galt's classic albums from the old days!

Get Lost follows from the early Mad comic book style – and features lots of well-done parodies of popular genres – film, fiction, and more! The writing is good, but the art is even better – very angular and edgey, at a level that's quite different than any other later work from the team – definitely influenced by the work of early Mad artists, but quite unique as well. The book brings together all three issues of the short-lived publication in glorious full color – and also features an interview with Mike Esposito on the fate of the comic as well. 96 pages, color, oversize.

A funky treasure trove from Apple & The Three Oranges – a group we hardly know at all, but who really blow us away with the cuts on this collection! The groove is plenty hard right from the get-go – the best of the funky 45 underground of the early 70s – which means that there's more 60s rawness on the record than you'd get from bigger-label funk at the time – as Ed "Apple" Nelson still works here with a mostly underground vibe! Ed plays drums – which are mighty hard on most numbers – and his vocals have this offbeat, off-kilter, over the top quality that almost reminds us a bit of the Hank Ballard/James Brown recordings for late 60s King – particularly in the way that Nelson's completely unbridled with his energy. The whole thing's great – one of the best funky collections we've heard in years – and presented with a rich amount of notes and historical information too. Titles include "Free & Easy (parts 1 & 2)", "Moon Light", "Curse Upon The World", "What Goes Around Comes Around", "Down Home Publicity", "True Love Will Never Die", "Gotta Stand For Something (parts 1 & 2)", and "I'll Give You A Ring". Features a great 16 page booklet with extensive liner notes and photos! LP, Vinyl record album

Fela & Africa 70Coffin For Head Of State/Unknown Soldier ... CD
Universal (France), 1979/1980. Used .... $8.99
Two beautiful albums from one of the most difficult periods of Fela's life. "Coffin For Head Of State (Part 1 & 2)" is a mournful dirge-like track (although not without a good deal of funk), written around the death of Fela's mother from an attack on his Kalakatua Republic. "Unknown Soldier (Part 1 & 2)" tells of that attack, and has a similar mournful quality, mirroring the sadness and trauma of the event. Both tracks are fantastic, and represent a maturity and emotionality that make this time one of the best musical moments of Fela's career! CD

An even-better volume of this amazing publication – a true treasure trove for fans of all things funky – and one of the coolest books of rare records we've ever seen! The Japanese book is a dictionary of rare groove classics from the 60s and 70s – listing hundreds of rare albums in alphabetical order, and featuring full color cover art, label and date information, and even a "rarity" meter – telling how hard it is to find the records! There's also reviews of each record, but written in Japanese – yet even without that information, there's plenty of great stuff here – and the visuals alone are worth the price of admission, as you'll find plenty here to guide your digging for rare albums for years to come. You'll also find some other cool features too – including a section on unreleased tracks from the 60s and 70s, which have come out in later years.

Mayer HawthorneWhere Does This Door Go (deluxe edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Universal Republic, 2013. New Copy .... $17.99 18.98
A sweet little record from Mayer Hawthorne – put together with the kind of care and straightforward sound that so few folks have been using in recent years! Back at his start, you might have been tempted to think of Hawthorne as slightly ironic – an underground talent who could work at a level that rivaled some of the best blue-eyed soul singers of decades past, but who might have been doing the whole thing with a nod and a wink. Yet with a record like this, Mayer really comes across as a top-shelf talent – an artist with strength and confidence that really come through in his performance and overall presentation – less care for any posturing or the ways in which anyone might perceive him – and instead just a great dedication to reviving the kinds of sounds that used to make the west coast scene sparkle so much in the 70s! Production is wonderful – crisp enough to be contemporary, but full of plenty of old school touches on the instrumentation too – which really helps the lyrics resonate in a space between the fresh and the classic. Loads of hook-heavy numbers, and even if our kid cousins are downloading this one in years to come, we'll still be proud we were with Mayer from the start. Titles include "Back Seat Lover", "Allie Jones", "Wine Glass Woman", "Reach Out Richard", "Crime", "Corsican Rose", "Robot Love", "The Stars Are Ours", and "All Better". Features bonus tracks "Fool", "Small Clone", "Designer Drug", and "Kaila". CD

The format is similar to other Rittor discographies – lots of full color album art (or label art in the case of 12" singles) – with the title, artist, label, and date all in English – followed by a short Japanese review. And as with the other books, it's the selection of tracks that make the whole thing great – as we'll find one record we know and love next to something we'd never thought to try before – and see the music in a new relationship that really informs our digging! Even if you can't read most of the text, there's still plenty here for any crate-digging fan of club and disco – and the book features different sections on "Pre-Disco Era", "Disco Rock", "NY Dance Classics", and other sub-categories that are very helpful.

Electric Cowbell, 2013. New Copy .... $8.99
Sublime vocal work from a contemporary Georgian ensemble – but one who work strongly in the best ancient modes of the Eastern world! The group have an amazing polyphonic approach – voices rising and falling, crossing and turning, coming together in a way that's far more than usual choral work – with a heavenly quality that's completely transcendent! The approach is a bit like some of the Bulgarian choral work made popular a few decades back, but also a bit more folksy too – given the personal approach of the recording, and the use of light acoustic instrumentation and percussion from time to time – although the vocal passages are clearly the main focus here. CD features 25 tracks in all – some traditional, some more recent, all of them beautiful! CD

Life! Liberty! Vengeance! A wild and very cool soundtrack for Tarantino's dual Blacksploitation/Spaghetti Western homage Django Unchained – featuring bits from some of our favorite Italian western composers mixed up with classic and contemporary funky soul and hip hop! It's the kind of soundtrack that could only happen for Quentin Tarantino – with rare and hard-to-find compositions by Luis Bacalov, Ennio Morricone, Riz Ortolani and Jerry Goldsmith on one hand – along with a few seemingly antithetical new compositions on the other – including a track penned by star Jamie Foxx for Rick Ross, a James Brown "Payback" remix with a vocal from the 2Pac archive, plus ones by Anthony Hamilton, John Legend and others! Last but not least, it's got some great bits of film dialogue by Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Samuel L. Jackson and Leonardo DiCaprio. Titles include "Django" by Luis Bacalov, "The Braying Mule" by Ennio Morricone, "Nicaragua" by Jerry Goldsmith with Pat Metheny, "Day Of Anger" by Riz Ortolani, "Unchained (The Payback/Untouchable)" by James Brown with 2Pac, "Who Did That To You?" by John Legend, "100 Black Coffins" by Rick Ross, "Trinity (Titoli)" by Annibale E I Cantori Moderni and many more.

VariousIn The Dark – The Soul Of Detroit (CD & DVD) (with bonus track) ... CD
Still Music, 2005/2012. New Copy CD/DVD .... $16.99
An excellent collection of soulful house from the Detroit underground of the mid 00s onward – one that's bubbling over with great work from lesser-known talents – all of whom come together to prove that these days, Detroit's one of the most happening music scenes on the planet! There's a really unified feel to the record, despite the presence of so many different artists – and much of the work here is kind of a homegrown version of the better-known cosmic grooves that have been emanating from the city in the work of Amp Fiddler, Ayro, and others in recent years. There's perhaps a bit more of a house-heavy vibe here than those references might imply – but the sound is cosmically soulful all the way through, with some great vocals on the best tracks! Titles include "Everybody (Amp Fiddler rmx)" by Courtney Jackson, "Melodies From The Jazz Republic" by Mick Huckaby, "Cosmic Jungle" by Rick The Godson Wilhite, "Ecoutez" by Keith Worthy & Malik Alston, "The Feeling Of Love (Amp Fiddler rmx)" by Anetria Wright, "Hot N Funky" by Delano Smith, "Sugar (Amp Fiddler rmx)" by Patchworks, "In The Dark" by Raybone Jones, Marcellus Malik Pittman, & Rick The Godson Wilhite. 2012 version includes the bonus track "Bosmos" by Rick The Godson Wilhite & Kenny Dixon Jr (Moodyman) plus DVD bonus disc: In The Dark: Voices, shot in Detroit by Chris Bravo and featuring Ron Trent, Franki "DJ 3000" Juncaj, Mike Huckaby, Diviniti & Pirahnahead and many more.

VariousNRK Sessions – Soul, Afro-Jazz & Latin From The Club 7 Scene ... CD
Plastic Strip Press (Norway), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy .... $16.99
Some of the funkiest grooves we've ever heard from the European scene – all tracks from the late 60s and early 70s, recorded as part of the legendary Club 7 in Oslo! Although of Norwegian origin, most of these numbers lean heavily towards American funky styles of soul and jazz at the end of the 60s – grooves that are loose and free, and which often feature some surprisingly great English language vocals – some sung by American soulster Earl Wilson, who was part of the scene at the time, and a key influence on most of the grooves here. The package is a real discovery for our ears – and given that most of these numbers were recorded by the Norwegian broadcasting system for radio play, they weren't really issued publicly at the time – making this collection almost a "sound library soul" set! Titles include "Whole Lotta Love", "Hot Pants", "Come On Children", "Them Changes", and "Moment Of Truth" by The Band No Name; "Groovin" by Karin Krog & Fred Noddelund, "Lite Lite" and "Tamma Song" by Tamma, "Night IN Barcelona" and "Oslo Late July" by Kjellerrock Jazzbandet, "California Soul" and "Don't Let Me Lose This Dream" by Geir Wentzel's Orkester, and "Otinku" by Modern Sound Quintet.

Nowadays, The Whitefield Brothers, their Poets Of Rhythm and associated acts can be credited for spurring the funk & raw soul revival of the 00s onward. At the time, some of the singles would appear and be hyped as reissues of regional rarities from back in the day – and they're so damn authentic, it was pretty easy to believe! Straight up raw funk instros, some jazzier gems with flute and female vox, organ-drenched jams and more credited to New Process, Poets Of Rhythm, Karl Hector & The Malcouns, Bajka, Whitefield Brothers, Polyversal Souls and more! Includes "Bus People Theme" and "Freedom" by New Process, "Summer Days (Instrumental)" and "Flight To St Vincent" by Poets Of Rhythm, "A Vision" and "The Only Religion That I Believe" by Bajka, "$600 Song" and "Banana Republic" by Mercy Sluts, "Muswell Hill Run" by Polyversal Souls, "The Bastard" and "Savannahstan" by Whitefield Brothers and more.

One Of You fled the Czech Republic in 1968 right before the Prague Spring. She was filled with hope about her new life in the west, but was shaken by the immense alienation and loneliness of urban life in North America. Her reaction to a new harsh reality was writing these songs, accompanying herself on the synthesizer. She never learned how to compose music developing her own notation and singular style. Side A consists of three self released 7"s from the early 1980s while the B side is a collection of unreleased acoustic demos sung in Czech. LP, Vinyl record album

A pretty mind-blowing album from Taiguara – worlds ahead of most of his other records, with very ambitious arrangements done in collaboration with Hermeto Pascoal and Wagner Tiso! The scope of the work is quite large – a complex blend of many instruments that soars with the soulfulness of some of the Milton Nascimento experiments from the same time, yet which at times has a rootsiness and a "natural" approach that drives the whole thing home! Incredibly hard to describe accurately – but if you like the work of Pascoal and Tiso at all, the record's a real treat – and a rare chance to hear this under-recognized Brazilian artist at his best. Titles include "Situacao", "Tres Pontas", "Outra Cena", "Pianice", "Publico", "Terra Das Palmeiras", and "Luanda Violeta Africana". CD

New Eddie HendersonPrecious Moment ... CD
Kind Of Blue, 2005. Used .... Just Sold Out!
Eddie Henderson's one of those players who's only grown better and better over the years – first starting out to great fame as a Miles-esque trumpeter working with electric grooves in the 70s – then moving onto really transform and grow as a musician over decades' worth of lesser-publicized recordings! This set's a great example of that growth – as Henderson blows with a careful, soulful vibe that's really wonderful – still some of the airy tones of years back, but phrasing that's a lot more complicated – and a way of mixing slightly sinister moments with sweeter styles that really keep things interesting, even on the mellower tracks in the set. Henderson plays both trumpet and flugelhorn, and the rest of the group features Kevin Hayes on piano, Ed Howard on bass, and Billy Hart on drums – on titles that include "Wild Flower", "Dance Cadaverous", "Precious Moment", "To Wisdom The Prize", and "Blue In Green".
