New Public EnemyPublic Enemy – 25th Anniversary Vinyl Collection (9LP box set) ... LP
Def Jam, Late 80s/1990s. Sealed 11 LP's ... $149.99
The complete Public Enemy Def Jam collection on vinyl – Yo! Bum Rush The Show, It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back, Fear Of A Black Planet, Apocalypse '91. . .The Enemy Strikes Black, Muse Sick-N-Hour Mess Age and the He Got Game soundtrack – that's 6 albums on 9 pieces of vinyl in a heavy-duty box! Put together to commemorate PE's 25th Anniversary, it's really beautifully done. Little more needs to be said about PE's late 80s/early 90s golden age of classic records – all of which are included here, of course – but the one-time panned later Def Jam recordings are pretty damn great, too – and you also get those here – and on vinyl, they way always sounded best! Everything Public Enemy Def Jam studio release from 1987 to 1998 is here. LP, Vinyl record album

Def Jam, 1987. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
The first mind-blowing salvo from the legendary PE! Public Enemy came with that strong, righteous voice in full force from the get-go – and if it's not quite the revolutionary aural experience as the following couple of albums on the production from, it's still pretty damn riveting effort. Hands down one of the best and most original hip hop debuts of the late 80s! Tracks include "You're Gonna Get Yours", "Timebomb", "Miuzi Weighs a Ton", "Public Enemy No. 1", "Raise The Roof", "Terminator Ex Speaks With His Hands", "Sophisticated B*tch", and the title cut.

New Public Image Ltd.Flowers Of Romance ... LP
Warner, 1981. Near Mint- ... $9.99
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

As fine of a batch of raw, funky hip hop instrumentals from Damu The Fudgemunk as we've heard! Damu's style is reminiscent of the blueprint soul and funk samples era that we all cherish – with moody, murky head nodding instros, and some more thickly-layered jams too. Solid stuff! Public Assembly is made up of rare and unreleased instrumental versions, and titles include "Hole Up!", "Truly Get Yours", "Wings Remix", "Madvillain Revision", "Streamline", "Overthrone", "Brightside OG Mix", "Supply For Demand Intro" and more.

New Public Image Ltd.Public Image – First Issue ... LP
Virgin (UK), 1978. Used ... Temporarily 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! Titles include "Theme", "Religion", "Religion II", "Annalisa", "Public Image", "Low Life", "Attack" and "Fodderstompf". LP, Vinyl record album

Tracks include "How Do You Speak With An Angel", "So Alone", "My Old Man", "Smiles". "Teach The Gifted Children" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Nice stuff from James! "Public Enemy" is a wonderful track, with a long spoken monologue that shows a great side of James' progressive ideas. Nice message about heroin, and a good backing with a mellow feel. Even better is "My Thang", a nice hard funky track that's James' answer to "It's My Thing". It's great how angry he gets when someone else has a big funk hit, and it always seemed like he had to write his own version! 7-inch, Vinyl record

A chilling album that still makes our spines quiver, even after 20 years! This is probably the most perfect realization of the ideas that John Lydon was trying to explore with PIL, and the set's an incredible mix of throbbing creepy basslines, pounding drums, and edgey guitar parts. The cut "Pop Tones" is worth the price of the LP alone, but on this double length set, you get 11 more tracks, including "No Radio", "Albatross", "Careering", and "Memories". Way better than the Sex Pistols ever were – and proof that the best music from the punk generation came after 1977. LP, Vinyl record album

New VariousHappy Machine – Standard Music Library 1970 to 2010 ... LP
Standard/Public (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 2 LPs ... Out Of Stock
A very unusual set of sound library tracks – one that moves past the obvious funk of other collections, and goes instead for a range of great spacey sounds – served up here in early 70s recordings that are heavy on analogue electronics and other sweet touches, which then inspire greatness in decades to come! The music includes some surprising contributions from bigger names – like Beatles producer George Martin, or Brit arranger Mike Vickers – mixed with other artists who are even more experimental, and really make the most of the moog and other cool keyboards! The set's less happy than you might expect from the title – more trippy and almost spooky at times – on titles that include "Cathedral Of Space" by Brian Hodgson, "Arcadian Valley" by Reginald Lewis, "Haley's Largo" by John Keating, "Happy Soul" by Jim Lawless, "Headful Of Birds" by Mike Vickers, "The Seven Immortals" by Kirk Thompson, "On The Streets" by John Kongos, and "Eary Feary" by George Martin.

There was a 1964 show in Chicago, a 1965 performance in Washington, DC and one in San Francisco in 1968. The liner notes claim that only small portions were deleted in order to fit it on this LP set.

Derek Bailey & Agusti FernandezSilent Dance ... CD
Incus (UK), 2005. Used ... $11.99
A Silent Dance, and a heck of a moody improv jazz duo set – featuring Derek Bailey on electric guitar and Agusti Fernandez on piano – a concert recording captured in Barcelona in 2005! This is actually billed as Bailey's last public performance, as he was dealing with the effects of motor neurone disease at the time. We can easily say without falling into any triumph-over-all-obstacles cliches, the set works very well, and in a different mode than many records the Brit improv guitar players made. It features 2 pieces, one that runs the better part of an hour, and the other closer to 8 minutes, and subtly changes moods from a kind of spectral spareness to an odd, well directed action/reation interplay between the two.

Buddy Collette with Irene KralBuddy Collette Quintet Featuring Irene Kral ... CD
Studio West, 1962. Used ... $6.99
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".

New John CorbettSun Ra & Aye Aton – Space, Interiors, & Exteriors 1972 ... Book
Corbett vs. Dempsey, 2013. New Copy ... $4.99 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. Used ... $9.99
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)".

New Bob DylanAnother Side of Bob Dylan ... CD
Columbia, 1964. Used ... $1.99
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".

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.

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

Bebel Gilberto's certainly one to keep her public waiting in the space between each new record – but she always makes the wait worthwhile by coming up with something new! The sound here is again something different than her previous two albums – somewhat electric, but also fairly acoustic as well – even more mature than before, and not as easily given to simple tricks or flourishes – which is a very good thing in our book! One track was done in collaboration with Kassin, with backings by Orquestra Imperial – and other titles feature contributions from Sabina Sciubba, Didi Gutman, Masa Shimizu, and Guy Sigsworth. Titles include "Tranquilo", "Night & Day", "Um Segundo", "Cade Voce", "Words", "Azul", and "Os Novos Yorkinos". CD

CuBop/Ubiquity, 2000. New Copy ... $5.99 16.98
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

New JBsFood For Thought ... CD
People/Polydor (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $13.99
The classic first album by The JBs – James Brown's Fred Wesley-led backing band, and the force behind most of his greatest records of the early 70s! The band are incredible at this point – sharper, harder, and funkier than just about any other combo around – and that includes all the thousands of groups in the funky 45 underground who were always trying to copy their sound, but never got things this right! Not only are the rhythms the stuff of legend – but the use of the instruments is far far above the norm – as can be heard on the mindblowing "The Grunt", which was sampled heavily by Public Enemy to great fame – and which features a saxophone solo that sounds more like a whistling tea kettle! The set collects some of the group's best early singles, and includes all of the short little funky cuts that made them a legend right out of the box – "Pass the Peas", "The Grunt", "These Are The JBs", "Hot Pants Road", "Wine Spot", "To My Brother", "Blessed Blackness", "Theme From King Heroin", "Escapism (parts 1 & 2), and "Gimme Some More" – all together here in one tight little album of massive funky hard beats and breaks!

KlanNerwy Miast ... CD
GAD (Poland), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $16.99
Heavy grooves from Poland's Klan – a group who worked more in the sound library scene than they did in the public eye – but who come across here with the rawness of some of the best British groups of the time! Bass is often very heavy – something that can make Klan sound funky on later records – but here, the focus is more hard rock – but at that great early level without any cliches, which creates a sinister current that holds plenty strong – even if you don't understand the language. Hammond comes in on some of the best tracks too – often with these cool trippy touches, and echoes of an older beat group vibe – and although vocals figure on most numbers, it's the band's deft instrumentation that really grabs us. Titles include "Kuzeni", "Winter", "Nerwy Miast", "Mrowisko", "Ani Ty", "Rajd Safari", and "Dwunastawka" – plus great covers of "Watermelon Man" and "Spinning Wheel". CD

Ennio MorriconeQuattro Mosche Di Velluto Grigio – The Four Velvet Flies (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Cinevox (Italy), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $29.99
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 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

Nasir, "World Is Yours", indeed.

Columbia has gone all out with the reverence on this double disc reissue, with remastered digital sound polish and a bonus disc with remixes of "World Is Yours", "Life's A B***h", "One Love" and "It Ain't Hard To Tell", plus bonus tracks "On The Real" and "Star Wars".

The wall of sound here is massive – and dare we say it, almost up to par with the Bomb Squad's work with Public Enemy and the expatriate Ice Cube at the time. Plus, with the passing of the years, we can now find a lot more darkly humorous moments in all of the ultra-violent, damn near Clockwork Orange level mischief. Titles include "Real Niggaz Don't Die", "Niggaz 4 Life", "Appetite For Destruction", "Findum, F*ckum, & Flee", and many more. LP, Vinyl record album

Charlie ParkerCharlie Parker (Bird On 52nd Street/Bird At St Nicks) ... LP
Jazz Workshop/Prestige, 1948. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $8.99
Two rare Charlie Parker albums in a single set! First up is Bird On 52nd Street – one of the more obscure Charlie Parker sessions of the 40s – at least in the original release! The material was recorded in 1948, on a home tape recorder, but not issued until after his death – part of a huge wave of Charlie Parker material that hit the market at the end of the 50s and start of the 60s! The sound here is quite raw – made even more so by the recording quality – but it also offers up a good illustration of the sheer power of Bird back in the day, the kind of bold, bracing energy that made even more than the regular jazz world sit up and take notice. The group's a quintet – with Miles Davis on trumpet, Duke Jordan on piano, Tommy Potter on bass, and Max Roach on drums – and there's been a few tape tricks in the mastering, in order to come up with a better version of some of the recordings. Tracks are short – in true bebop format – and titles include "Night In Tunisia", "Dizzy Atmosphere", "Out Of Nowhere", "My Old Flame", "How High The Moon", "This Time The Dream's On Me", "Hot House", and "Chasin The Bird". Next is Bird At St Nicks – a posthumous issue of an early 50s live set by Charlier Parker – one of the many that were rushed to the public in the years after his early death. The set, like many of the other live ones from the time, isn't recorded that well – but the music is still pretty wonderful. There's a real focus on Bird in the way the microphone was set up – so although you hear the rest of the band comping in the background, the album almost works like a session of solo sax work by Parker – as his alto is right out front in the mix, playing with a faltering style at times – but in a way that only seems to deepen our vision of his genius. Players include Red Rodney on trumpet and Al Haig on piano – and titles include "Ornithology", "Star Eyes", "Visa", "I Didn't Know What Time It Was", and "Confirmation". LP, Vinyl record album

Sun RaIn The Orbit Of Ra ... CD
Strut (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99 16.99
A really wonderfully-done collection of work from the legendary Sun Ra – put together by longtime musical partner Marshall Allen, and way way different than the typical mish-mash of tracks you'd find on some of the budget or public domain titles on the market! First off, the track selection is really thoughtful – music that definitely defines the Arkestra in the 60s and 70s, but which also highlights some of its overlooked corners too – pulled together from recordings that appeared on the Saturn, Impulse, and other labels – all curated and remastered by Art Yard, who've done their share of great Ra reissues over the years. Plus, the package features a few unreleased performances as well – and although it would serve as a great introduction to the music of Sun Ra, it's also really perfectly put together for longtime Ra fans as well – given the focus, track selection, and overall quality of the whole thing. The sounds are sublime – maybe one of the best summations of the righteous, cosmic genius of the Arkestra at its best – and titles include "Reflects Motion", "Island In The Sun (extended)", "Somewhere In Space", "The Lady With The Golden Stockings", "Somebody Else's World", "Ancient Aethiopia", "Astro Black", "Have You Heard The Latest News From Neptune", "We Travel The Spaceways", and "Plutonian Nights". 2CD version also includes the never-heard "Trying To Put The Blame On Me".

Pete SeegerRainbow Race/Now/Young Vs Old ... CD
Omni/Columbia (Australia), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99 19.98
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!

New Stark RealityNow ... CD
Stones Throw, 1969. Used ... $5.99
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

The standout cut is the classic "Bon Bon Vie", a dancefloor groover that will never die, and a huge sample for Public Enemy – but the album also includes many other great cuts, like "House Of Music", "Hot Night In The City", and "Last Of The Wicked Romancers".

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.

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.

Polydor (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Raw power and righteous energy from James Brown – a set that still has all the best funk elements of his longer-form albums of the time, but which also packs an even stronger political message too! The vibe of the record is clear from the image on the cover – the most powerful since Payback – and James is even more focused in the lyrics, which bite harder than some of his other commentary of the period – while still allowing the JBs plenty of room to serve up some heavy funk in the process! Titles include the classics "Public Enemy #1" and "King Heroin", both hard soul political tracks – and the funkier side of The Godfather is represented by the killer cuts "Talkin Loud & Sayin Nothing" and James own version of "I Need Help" (which was also recorded by Bobby Byrd). The album also includes a great duet with Vicki Anderson on "Who Am I", the excellent title cut "There It Is", and a surprisingly nice version of "Never Can Say Goodbye" – as well as the single "I'm A Greedy Man".

Reprise/Ryko, 1969. Used 2CD ... Just Sold Out!
An amazing movie in sound – supposedly music (and more) that was going to be used in a film project, issued to the public while Zappa was trying to raise money for production! The album's one of the most tripped-out studio efforts to date from the group – loads of overdubbing, and wonderfully complicated instrumentation – with some especially great keyboards from Don Preston and Ian Underwood, whose keys alone almost preface the future of fusion – while, at the same time, display some key links to 20th century avant music as well! 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.

New Les BaxterFruit Of Dreams (Ports Of Pleasure/The Sacred Idol) ... CD
Capitol/El (UK), 1957/1960. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

New James BrownThere It Is ... LP
Polydor, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Raw power and righteous energy from James Brown – a set that still has all the best funk elements of his longer-form albums of the time, but which also packs an even stronger political message too! The vibe of the record is clear from the image on the cover – the most powerful since Payback – and James is even more focused in the lyrics, which bite harder than some of his other commentary of the period – while still allowing the JBs plenty of room to serve up some heavy funk in the process! Titles include the classics "Public Enemy #1" and "King Heroin", both hard soul political tracks – and the funkier side of The Godfather is represented by the killer cuts "Talkin Loud & Sayin Nothing" and James own version of "I Need Help" (which was also recorded by Bobby Byrd). The album also includes a great duet with Vicki Anderson on "Who Am I", the excellent title cut "There It Is", and a surprisingly nice version of "Never Can Say Goodbye" – as well as the single "I'm A Greedy Man".

New Dee DanielsIntimate Conversations ... CD
Origin, 2014. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Dee Daniels is the kind of singer who really takes us back to our precious time spent in jazz clubs on the south side of Chicago a few decades back – during the days when the old school jazz singer seemed to be a dying breeed, as few labels really understood how to capture their genius or present them to the public. Daniels has an easygoing, relaxed way of putting over a tune – yet still manages to come across with a rich, soulful vibe throughout – whether singing her own great lyrics on one tune, or working through a mix of well-chosen tracks that have a lot more variety than just the usual standards set – the kind of material that a singer like Dee can really make her own, especially with help from a soulful small combo that includes Cyrus Chestnut on piano, Houston Person on tenor, and Wycliffe Gordon on trombone! Titles include "4AM", "Get Here", "Come Try My Love", "Don't Touch Me", "A Song For You", and "I Wish You Love". CD

New Miles DavisLive At The Fillmore East – It's About That Time ... CD
Columbia, 1970. Used 2CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 ... LP
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".

John Fahey rewrites the sound of America – here in a wonderful set that stands as one of the real highlights from his Takoma Records years! Tracks are a mix of public domain material from America's past, mixed with plenty of Fahey originals – and all material receives both fantastic Fahey arrangements and performance – with a sublime tone that's filled with color, life, and lots of dark little corners as well. Echoes of older string and blues modes come into the mix – but with a very contemporary, modernist expression – as John reworks an older version of American to balance a country forever changed by the 60s. Titles include "The Voice Of The Turtle", "Knoxville Blues", and "Mark 1:15". CD features a stunning amount of unreleased tracks – 9 songs that never made it on the original album, which was concieved as a double-length set! CD

New Galt MacDermotMore From The Basement – Unreleased Tracks Vol 2 ... LP
Kilmarnock, 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Funky madness from the mind of Galt MacDermot – the second volume of rare work from his deep deep vaults! 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! Titles include "Ba Ba Black Baby", "Lost Dreams", "Ghetto Suite Medley", "DD 2 03", "Wurly", "Water Fight", and "Cleanly & Pump". LP, Vinyl record album

Priority, 1991. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
What sounded like a disappointing, and way too calculatedly provocative follow-up to Straight Outta Compton back in 1991 now sounds to us like the peak of Dr. Dre's career as a producer. The wall of sound here is massive – and dare we say it, almost up to par with the Bomb Squad's work with Public Enemy and the expatriate Ice Cube at the time. Plus, with the passing of the years, we can now find a lot more darkly humorous moments in all of the ultra-violent, damn near Clockwork Orange level mischief. Titles include "Real Niggaz Don't Die", "Niggaz 4 Life", "Appetite For Destruction", "Findum, F*ckum, & Flee", and many more. Remastered for the first time, and includes the full 100 Miles & Runnin' EP as bonus cuts. CD

The Atomic Age in all its musical glory – served up here in a wonderful package of music, warnings, and more! The whole thing's one of the coolest "atomic-themed" collections we've ever seen – as it not only features over 100 vintage songs about the rise of the atomic bomb, and all the requisite worries it produced – it also includes two dozen public service announcements, and a bonus DVD with classic civil defense and anti-Communist films from the 50s! The set also features two full spoken word records, too – both on CD – If The Bomb Falls and The Complacent Americans – surprisingly relevant stuff in a post-9/11 generation. And as usual with Bear Family, the overall package is stunning – a great box, overstuffed CDs, and a 292 page hardcover book – full color, filled with graphics and photos from one of the most panicked times in US history!

New Richard L GrahamGovernment Issue – Comics For The People 1940s to 2000s (paperback) ... Book
Abrams Comic Arts, 2009. New Copy Book ... Out Of Stock
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

After this one, there was no turning back for Kool & The Gang! The record has them bringing their underground funk sound to the masses – with a choppy riffy groove that stands out almost as a public challenge to all the other pretenders that had been cropping up on major labels during the same time. The band are as tight as they ever were – and they're rolling like a non-stop locomotive with a horn-heavy groove on classics like "Jungle Boogie" and "Hollywood Swinging", while also showing hints of their strong mellow future on the cut "Wild & Peaceful". The album also includes the massive two part jammer "Funky Stuff" and "More Funky Stuff", plus "This Is You, This Is Me" and "Life Is What You Make It". LP, Vinyl record album

New Sun RaIn The Orbit Of Ra (plus bonus CDs) ... LP
Strut (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A really wonderfully-done collection of work from the legendary Sun Ra – put together by longtime musical partner Marshall Allen, and way way different than the typical mish-mash of tracks you'd find on some of the budget or public domain titles on the market! First off, the track selection is really thoughtful – music that definitely defines the Arkestra in the 60s and 70s, but which also highlights some of its overlooked corners too – pulled together from recordings that appeared on the Saturn, Impulse, and other labels – all curated and remastered by Art Yard, who've done their share of great Ra reissues over the years. Plus, the package features a few unreleased performances as well – and although it would serve as a great introduction to the music of Sun Ra, it's also really perfectly put together for longtime Ra fans as well – given the focus, track selection, and overall quality of the whole thing. The sounds are sublime – maybe one of the best summations of the righteous, cosmic genius of the Arkestra at its best – and titles include "Reflects Motion", "Island In The Sun (extended)", "Somewhere In Space", "The Lady With The Golden Stockings", "Somebody Else's World", "Ancient Aethiopia", "Astro Black", "Have You Heard The Latest News From Neptune", "We Travel The Spaceways", and "Plutonian Nights".

That's Dr Lonnie Smith, to you – grooving greatly here on one of those sweet mid 90s sessions that really returned his organ talents to the jazz-buying public! The group on the date is co-led with guitarist John Abercrombie – a player whose work has graced soul jazz sets over the years, but who's also best known for the airier tones of his ECM recordings – tones that sometimes surface here, but which are then quickly turned into the more focused sounds needed to match Smith's clean lines on the Hammond! There's no bassist at all on the date – Lonnie handles most of that with the organ – drums are by Marvin Smitty Smith. Titles include "Impressions", "Greensleeves", "Afro Blue", and "Bessie's Blues" – all tributes to Coltrane, natch! CD

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

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 Michel MagneSerie OSS 117 ... CD
Universal (France), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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!

New VariousNuggets – Antipodean Interpolations Of The First Psychedelic Era ... LP

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!

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.

New Roland KirkVolunteered Slavery ... LP
Atlantic, 1969. Used ... Out Of Stock
Our favorite album ever from Roland Kirk – and a beautiful mix of two different sides of his genius! Side one's got Roland doing these crazy takes on late 60's pop cuts like "My Cherie Amour" and "Say a Little Prayer", plus his own "songs", done with soulful vocals and a straight-on approach that shows him trying to break out of the avant jazz underground, and reach a wider audience with a spiritual message on tracks like "Search For The Reason Why" and "Spirits Up Above". If this description sounds like a mess, it's not – because this side of the album is one of Kirk's most brilliant statements ever about jazz, soul, love and freedom! Side two has Roland in a straighter vein – running through a tight live set from Newport 1968, handled with fire and imagination, the kind of boundless energy he always brought to his public appearances. Tracks on that set include "One Ton", "Three For The Festival", "Afro Blue", and some great remarks by Roland! LP, Vinyl record album

Apple & The Three OrangesFree & Easy – The Complete Works 1970 to 1975 (with download) ... LP
Now Again, Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $19.99
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".

Madeline Bell/Themes International Rhythm SectionVoice Of Soul/Sound Of Soul ... CD
Themes/Vocalion (UK), 1976. New Copy ... $16.99
Two wonderfully soulful albums from the Themes International sound library label – back to back on a single CD! The Voice Of Soul is a rare date from singer Madeline Bell – a vocalist who cut some key commercial work in the late 60s and 70s UK scene, but who shines beautifully on this rare set for the sound library! The tunes are all vocal, with Madeline in the lead – and the overall feel is a bit like Bell's This Is The One Girl set from the mid 70s – but with a leaner feel overall, thanks to the relatively small combo backing up the vocals. And although the record was never issued publicly at the time, it's a killer batch of mellow soul from the 70s – great vocals sliding along with the keyboards, and quite possibly Bell's finest moment on wax. Titles include "Your Smile", "You're A Winner", "Love Doctor", "Soul Slap", "Flying High", "Mr Smooth Man", and "Love Is All". The Sound Of Soul is all instrumental – classic set of soulful sound library tracks – lots of sweet keyboards, guitar, basslines, and other nice bits – one of the best of the titles on the Themes library label during the 70s, and with loads of great tracks by Alan Parker! The overall style is especially in the cop show mode – with tight production, but lots of hard riffing funk – and titles include "Move & Shake Your Body", "Love Doctor", "Soul Slap", "Crumpet", "Flying High", "Mr Smooth Man", and "Love Is All".
