Peter BuckI Am Back To Blow Your Mind Once Again ... LP
Mississippi, 2014. New Copy ... $14.99
A second dose of solo weirdness from Peter Buck – who's best known, of course, as guitarist and co-founder of REM – but he's also done cool and interesting stuff with the Minus Five, The Baseball Project and more in the post REM years – and we admire the heck of his freewheeling solo stuff, too! This one's filled with skronky blues rockers and poetic acoustic tunes alike, with lots of dissonant guitars and unpredictable twists and turns. Other players include Scott McCaughey and other frequent collaborators and special guests. Includes "Ride That Road", "My Slobbering Decline", "Life Is Short", "Southerner", "Here In Heaven", "(You Must Fight To Live) On The Planet Of The Apes", "Welcome To The Party", "Drown With Me", "West Of Sunset", "Roswell" and more.

VariousAthens, GA – Inside/Out (CD/DVD set) ... CD
Omnivore, 1987. Used CD & DVD ... $2.99
An amazing document of this important southern scene – a key rockumentary from the 80s, with a strong focus on the flowering of music in Athens, Georgia! Athens really just burst briefly as a scene in the US at the start of the decade – but went onto have a huge impact on music for years to come – thanks to work from groups like The B-52s, REM, Pylon, and a host of great lesser-knowns featured here. Titles include a rare recording of "Dream" by REM, plus "Pretty" by Love Tractor, "Hi" by Time Toy, "Stop It" by Pylon, "His & Hearse" by BBQ Killers, "Crazy Hazy Kisses" by Flat Duo Jets, "Golden" by Dreams So Real, "Elephant Radio" by The Squalls, "Swan Swan H" by REM, and "Na Na Na Na" by The Squalls. CD/DVD package features the the soundtrack on CD for the first time ever – plus 5 bonus tracks! DVD features the full film plus bonus tracks! CD

Alex BandEccentric (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Helicon/GAD (Poland), 1980. New Copy ... $16.99
A sublime set from this hip Polish ensemble – a group who got their start in funky fusion, but who really stretch out here in a more sophisticated space too – mixing some of their electric elements with these really beautiful horn passages – arranged at a level that's full of color and life! The approach is a bit like some of the best MPS big bands of the 70s – with some keyboards and electric guitar in the mix, driving the rhythms along – while the skilled lineup of trumpets, trombone, and tenor sax carve out these soulful lines over the top – all at a level that's extremely fresh, very thoughtful, and which almost beats most American jazz of this type from the time! The style is more mid 70s than you'd guess from the date – and the album's a great lost treasure from the overlooked Polish scene. Titles include "Wet Za Wet", "Sam Na Manhattanie", "Switaniec", "Hispanzkie Izy", and "Morskie Slonce". CD features three bonus tracks – "Gra Milosna", "Fikolek", and "Tanczaca Anaconda". CD

Eric AlexanderChicago Fire ... CD
High Note, 2014. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
Not the soundtrack to the popular TV drama of the same name – but a set that returns tenorist Eric Alexander to all the fire he brought to his early years on the Chicago scene! Alexander's set up here with a key range of players from this years – longtime associates Harold Mabern on piano, John Webber on bass, and Joe Farnsworth on drums – all rhythmic giants who push Eric back into the kind of old school territory that made him an instant heir to the Chicago legacy of tenor giants like Johnny Griffin, Eddie Harris, and Von Freeman! Trumpeter Jeremy Pelt joins the group on a few tracks – adding in these soaring lines on trumpet that really sparkle – but we honestly like the quartet numbers the best, as they have Alexander opening up in some nicely unbridled territory. Titles include "Mr Stitt", "Bluesky For Vonski", "Just One Of Those Things", "Eddie Harris", "Bee Hive", and "You Talk That Talk". CD

Jeff AlexanderDirty Dingus Magee ... LP
MGM, Early 70s. Sealed ... $2.99
What a crazy film! We barely remember this one, but the soundtrack's for a strange western written by Joseph Heller, and starring Frank Sinatra and George Kennedy. Overall, the songs have a mix of groovy and goofy styles – with a few tasty late 60s-sounding numbers that use organ or horns, and a few others that are more cartoony, with lots of "western" touches. Very humorous music overall, with titles that include "Strum", "The Rounders", "Little Big Horny", "Rip Snortin End Title", "Rauncy", and "Hokey". LP, Vinyl record album

All Natural, 1999. Very Good 2LP ... $14.99
Maybe we're biased, but this is a fantastic record in the great Chicago tradition that includes Common Sense and the Molemen! All Natural manage to combine conscious and abstract lyrics with music that's worth hearing, and doesn't fall into that you-gotta-be-blunted-to-appreciate-it drudge. Production by No I.D., the Molemen and Capital D. Includes "50 Years" and "Hip Hop History 101" from the first single, plus "Phantoms Of The Opera (remix)", "Thinkin Cap", "Underground & Independent", "MC Avenger", "It's OK", "Prime Suspect", "Niggas B Lyin", "Take It 2 Em", "Fresh Air" , "This Is How It Should B Done", "Start The Revolution", and more. – Plus be sure to check out Fresh Air, the All Natural book, now sold separately.

Annisteen AllenFujiyama Mama ... CD
Rev-Ola (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... $4.99
Seminal sides by one of the first great female singers of R&B – the mighty Annisteen Allen, a vocalist who was first known for her great work in the band of Lucky Millinder, but later stepped out on her own as an even bigger solo act! Annisteen's got a style that predates Ruth Brown, LaVern Baker, and other key 50s R&B singers – a mode with roots in swing, but delivery that's much harder-hitting overall – perfect for the transitional R&B years in which she worked! The collection features key sides by Allen recorded for the King and Capitol labels – packaged together with great notes on her full career, and a huge set list that's extremely comprehensive. CD features 28 tracks in all – with titles that include "Mine All Mine", "Yes I Know", "Mr Trumpet Man", "Too Long", "Lies Lies Lies", "Down By The River", "My Brand Of Loving", "Wheels Of Love", "Fujiyama Mama", "Nothing Can Replace You", "I've Got Troubles", "Hard To Get Along", and "Slow But Sure".

Marshall Allen/William Parker/Drake/Jordan/SilvaAll Star Game – With Hamid Drake/Kidd Jordan/Alan Silva ... CD
Eremite, 2000. New Copy ... $14.99 15.99
The title definitely gets it right – as the quintet's an all-star lineup that features Marshall Allen on alto sax, Kidd Jordan on tenor, Hamid Drake on drums, and both Alan Silva and William Parker on bass! The twin basses are really wonderful – and have this deep texture that really shapes the performance – a sense of tone and timing that brings urgency to the record in a way that either player on their own wouldn't have been able to achieve – often with a sense of soul that really adds a lot to the reeds! CD features six long live tracks – all improvised by the group. CD

Comet (France), 2012. New Copy ... $15.99
A sweet little single – not just for the cool 10" format, but for the great grooves within! "Meus Filhos" is a classic funky track written by Jorge Ben – and delivered here in a tight Afro Funk mode that's way different than the original – lots of tight drums from Tony Allen at the core, great horns from the Abayomy Afrobeat Orquesta, and even a bit of vocals from BNegao! The flipside features a remix by Robin Leduc, but the sound is still very much in the best acoustic mode of the main cut – with mostly just a bit of change in the structure and a few sonic elements! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Prestige, Late 50s. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $3.99
Two later album's from Allison's stay at Prestige, Ramblin' With Mose and Autumn Song – before he moved over to Atlantic to go on to greater success – collected in one package. Unlike his later, more well-known sets, this is mostly instrumental, but there are a couple of nice vocal tracks, with the roots to his bluesy hipster approach in evidence: "I Got A Right To Cry", "Eyesight To The Blind", "That's All Right" and "Do Nothing Till You Here From Me". The remaining piano trio sides have a great rollicking almost boogie feel to them, with Addison Farmer and Ronnie Free rounding out the group, and include "Old Devil Moon", "Stranger In Paradise", "Kissin' Bug", "Ramble", "Old Man John", "Ingenue", "Promenade", "It's Crazy", "Strange", "Autumn Song" and "Groovin High".

New Gene AmmonsLegends Of Acid Jazz – Black Cat!/You Talk That Talk! (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Prestige, 1970/1971. New Copy ... $9.99
A pair of funky killers from tenorist Gene Ammons! Black Cat is one of the great funky albums that Gene Ammons cut for Prestige at the start of the 70s – quite different than his earlier work for the label, and a very different showcase for his tenor genius! The whole lineup here is amazing – a quintet that features heavy drums from Idris Muhammad, piano and Fender Rhodes from Harold Mabern, bass from Ron Carter, and some tremendously smoking guitar from the great George Freeman! Freeman goes nuts on the funky cut "The Black Cat" – and other tracks include "Jug Eyes", "Hi Ruth", "Something", and "Piece To Keep Away Evil Spirits". You Talk That Talk is a set done in collaboration with Sonny Stitt – and these two tenor giants meet in the period slightly before Ammons death, and they're grouped with some of the younger funky players on Prestige, like Leon Spencer, Idris Muhammad, and George Freeman. The sound is fairly traditional, but there's some nice funky moments. Tracks include "Out Of It", which was written by Harold Vick, "The People's Choice", written by Harold Ousley, and the title cut, which is a Leon Spencer original. The 14 track set includes the full titles from 2 LPs, plus 2 bonus cuts from a rare source! CD

AmnestyFree Your Mind – The 700 West Sessions ... CD
Now Again/Stones Throw, 1973. Used ... $8.99
Rare funk from the Indy scene of the early 70s – the long-overdue release of material recorded by a really hard-jamming, horn-heavy combo! Amnesty have a sound that's awash in the best large group influences of the time – a bit of Earth Wind & Fire, a bit of Parliament/Funkadelic, but also a grittier, more guitar-based groove at times too – one that rumbles heavily at the bottom of the rhythms, with a sound that's like Norman Whitfield-era Motown, taken to much greater extremes! There's actually a lot more Detroit going on in the work than Indy – but the horns also have a jazzier, more open-ended quality too – not just parts penned for simple funky rhythms, but ones that show some influence from the more righteous side of the jazz spectrum. The material was all recorded on two dates in 1973 – but only issued here for the first time – and together, the tracks are a great example of a hip group from the underground, really letting loose with a great sense of freedom. There's some vocals on the record, but almost more of a focus on the instrumentation overall – and titles include "Can I Help You", "Love Fades", "Trouble Will Remain", "We've Come A Long Way", "Liberty", "Mister President", "Free Your Mind", "We Have Love", and "Lord Help Me".

Fred Anderson, Hamid Drake, K Jordan & W Parker2 Days In April ... CD
Eremite, 1994. New Copy 2 CDs ... $24.99 29.99
Two great days in April – each featuring some very free improvisation from a group that includes Fred Anderson and Kidd Jordan on tenors, William Parker on bass, and Hamid Drake on drums – a quartet with boundless energy, and a really rich sense of each other's place within the sound! The first day features a performance from Amherst, and a relatively fiery one at that – with these unbridled sounds from all players, and some especially tremendous saxophone lines from Anderson and Jordan – often soaring out together, but with a very individual sense of space. The second day is slightly more measured – a Cambridge performance that has some nice solo spots for each player. Both dates are very well-recorded – and packaged in the usual high Eremite standard!

Ilk, 2008. Used ... $9.99
Tremendous reed work from Lotte Anker – a contemporary player with a great sense of sound! The album's a live trio recording, done a few years ago in Cologne – and it begins with some extremely haunting work from Lotte that's nearly solo, and with rich sonic textures – a slow unfolding of saxophonic expression, gently added to by the piano of Craig Taborn and drums of Gerald Cleaver. This careful feel continues throughout the album's three long tracks – very different than other work of this nature in recent years, with a really tentative quality that's as sensitive as it is stimulating. Titles include "Real Solid", "Magic Carpet", and "Berber". CD

New AntibalasAntibalas (with bonus download) ... LP
Daptone, 2012. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
Amazing sounds from one of the best funky combos anywhere – ever! Antibalas have certainly risen to fame in the years since we first heard their Afro-styled grooves – working famously in the Fela musical, and reaching generations of ears with their own brilliant records. Yet throughout it all, they've always stayed true to their sound – and, if anything, are even sharper, tighter, and funkier than before – all extremely adept not only at playing their instruments, but at hitting the right sort of sound to cut through all the BS that was holding back funky Afro grooves for years! Part of that sound comes from superb Daptone production by Gabriel Roth – who really knows how to keep things lean and mean and full of energy. But the core credit really goes to the group – who never cease to amaze us here – and continually come up with fresh sounds on their keyboards and horns – and inventive rhythms to match! Titles include "Dirty Money", "The Rat Catcher", "Ari Degbe", "Ibeji", "Sare Kon Kon", and "Him Belly No Go Sweet". LP, Vinyl record album

Daptone, 2014. New Copy ... $5.99
A sweet funky 45 from Antibalas – one that reminds us just how seriously these guys take the "funk" part of their Afro Funk groove! The tune builds slowly – with raspy guitar lines over rumbling drums – then explodes with the kind of organ-woven groove we first loved from these guys as The Daktaris – with some exotic flourishes on the horns that make the whole thing sound wonderfully hip! The track's a great reminder that in a world of countless Afro-styled combos, Antibalas are still very much at the top of the heap! 7-inch, Vinyl record

New 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".

Aquarian DreamNorman Connors Presents Aquarian Dream ... LP
Buddah, 1976. Very Good ... $11.99
A wonderful debut from Aquarian Dream – a group who first appeared under the direction of Norman Connors – and who also have lots of the same blend of jazz, soul, and funk you'd find in Connors' own music of the time! Yet Aquarian Dream are very much their own bag, too – a distinctly different group who are to Connors what Ramp was to Roy Ayers – a separate entity that shares the key production talents of their sponsor – but who break out in a wonderful vibe that's all their own! The album's best remembered for its key clubby groovers, but we also love the mellower moments too – which have a sublime stepping quality that really comes through via instrumentation from Claude Bartee on tenor and soprano sax, and Jacques Burvick on a whole host of cool keyboards. Gloria Jones (not the famous one) is a great lead singer – and titles include the classic Chicago club track "Phoenix" – plus "Look Ahead", "Once Again", "Let Me Be The One", "I'll Always Love You T",, and "Treat Me Like The One You Love".

Jack ArelChappell Recorded Music Library Works – Originals & Remixes ... CD
Chappell/Vadim (France), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $11.99
A long-overdue collection of work from the legendary Jack Arel – one of the lesser-known sound library composers of the late 60s and early 70s – but a true giant in his funky field, as you'll hear by the great music on this set! Arel is French, but he often wrote for British sources – including the Prisoner TV show – so his music has a great blend of Parisian pop modes and chunkier London beats – a style that almost mixes together some of the funkier jazz sensibilities of the sound library generation with the tighter, more romping rhythms that were usually penned for TV and commercial use. The first half of this set features 25 originals by Arel – some in collaboration with Pierre Dutor or Jean-Claude Petit – and often done with trippier touches that include fuzzy guitar or funky flute! The second half features remixes of the originals – tunes that are often a bit longer, and almost restructured as whole new songs. Originals include "Shore Of Sumatra", "Sideral Rhythmic", "De Paris A Liverpool", "Jungle Soul", "Game Trap", "Picture Of Summer", "Train Bleu", "Strange Galaxy", and "Sundown". Remixes include "Drugstore Party" remixed by Le Tone, "Jungle Soul" remixed by Shawn Lee's Ping Pong Orchestra, "The Night Squad" by Danny Wild & Goldfinger, "Loco Robo" by Luke Vibert, "Chicago Girl" remixed by Barth, "Electric Railman" remixed Mowo, and "Crystal Abyss" by Telepopmusik.

Art Ensemble Of ChicagoKabalaba – Live At Montreux Jazz Festival ... LP
AECO, 1974. Very Good ... $29.99
A rare treasure from the Art Ensemble Of Chicago – recorded as a supposed third album for Atlantic records in 1974, but unissued for years until the group released it on their own! The session is a live one, recorded at the Montreux Jazz Festival – and features the unique addition of Muhal Richard Abrams on piano, making for the group's first session ever with the instrument! Muhal's work nicely colors in the spare spaces on the set – giving a soaring, lyrical quality to a few of the numbers – and really standing in stark contrast to the freer solo work of the other players. At times, Abrams is playing these longer lines that almost have a McCoy Tyner sort of energy – directing the set with a tremendous searching vibe – and at other times, he joins the group in their sparer exploration of sound and space – in a mode that's similar to some of their Parisian recordings. Titles include "Sun Precondition One", "Kabalaba", "Kaba Song", "Mal's Delight", and "Improvization A2". LP, Vinyl record album

One of the hippest blends of African roots and psychedelic sounds ever – a tremendous record from the UK scene at the start of the 70s! The group is a unique blend of the jazz elements of the Blue Notes group from South Africa – Mongezi Feza on trumpet, Dudu Pukwana on alto and vocals, and Louis Moholo on drums – with some rock touches from guitarist Fred Coker, and Ghanian elements on percussion and vocals from Terri Quays! Most of the other players have strong jazz backgrounds, and because of that the set's got a style that's different than the usual Afro rock outing of its type – more far-reaching and cosmic overall, with some especially great passages from Feza, Pukwana, and Coker. Jade Warrior make a guest appearance too – and titles include "Barazinbar", "Wanga", "La La", "Dalani", "Bayeza", "Sanga", "Come Along", and "Kinzambi". CD

The title's certainly right on this one – because Atlantic Starr serve up a really brilliant blend of electro funk and mainstream soul – balanced with that near-perfect sound that made them one of the best groups of their generation! Despite the size of the combo, the sound is relatively lean – a very focused balance of basslines, keyboards, and some tightly snapping 80s groove rhythms – served up with vocals that warmly cascade over the tops of the tunes, but usually take a second seat to the extremely compelling instrumentation. The sound is polished, but never too slick – and the group are a great example of how well soul from this time could sound when done just the right way! Titles include "Love Me Down", "Sexy Dancer", "Circles", "Love Moves", "Your Love Finally Ran Out", and "You're The One". CD

Atomic ForestObsession (2LPs with bonus book) ... LP
Now Again, Mid 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $18.99 23.98
The collected work of a mighty trippy group from the Indian scene – a psychedelic combo who worked in the 70s, but who had the same sort of edge you'd hear from the American and British scenes of the late 60s! In truth, there's a fair bit of Anglo influence going on in the music – not just in the English language lyrics, but also in the way the guitars come together with stretched-out, soaring brilliance – flying eight miles high to the sky in a heady brew of freak and fuzz – and turning this approach to some surprising soundtrack numbers too! Production is perfect for the band's vibe – often spacing things out in a really cool way – with some slightly primitive modes that also remind us of the South American psych scene of a few years before. Now Again did a brilliant job with the package – bringing together a host of the group's best tracks from the mid 70s, and a bonus 20 page booklet with full notes on the group, and some very cool photos and ephemera. The whole thing even features a few unreleased numbers – and titles include "Obsession 77", "Sunshine Day", "Butterfly Version 1", "Theme From The Godfather", "Theme From The Fox", "Windmills Of Your Mind", "Booboo Lullaby", "Man You're Not Number One", "Travel On", "Gesthemene", and "Foxy Lady".

Brian Auger's Oblivion ExpressCloser To It! ... LP
RCA, 1973. Very Good+ ... $7.99
Soaring organ work from Brian Auger's Oblivion Express – and arguably the greatest album he ever cut with this post-Trinity group! The sound here is clean and lean – with Brian himself on a mix of organ, piano, and moog – really hitting a nice jazz funk mode that drops some of the bluesier touches of earlier years, and goes for a 70s-styled sound that we really like a lot – and which even makes us like the vocals a bit more than usual! Backings are mostly spare bass, drums, and percussion – and the set's got a great remake of "Inner City Blues", plus the spacey original "Light On The Path", a nice cover of "Compared To What", plus "Whenever You're Ready" and "Voices Of Other Times".

Brian Auger's Oblivion ExpressLive Oblivion Vol 1 ... CD
Ghostown/Nasty, 1974. Used ... $16.99
Really hard-jamming work from keyboardist Brian Auger – the first of a 2-part live set from the US, and easily some of his greatest work on record! The tracks are all very long and stretched out here – an extrapolation of the territory Auger was already exploring on studio sides, taken into even more cosmic realms through the lively nature of the set. As with other records from the time, Alex Lighterwood sings on some cuts – but the real highlight is the keyboard work of Auger – served up on both organ and electric piano, and hitting a great blend of funk, fusion, and keyboard soul! Titles include a really great funky remake of "Bumpin On Sunset", the original break track "Don't Look Away", and the tunes "Truth", and "Beginning Again". CD

Qwest, 1984. Near Mint- ... $1.99
Classy soul from Patti Austin – working here with some great help from Quincy Jones, Narada Michael Walden, and others – all of whom help her find just the right space to groove nicely! Patti's one of those soul singers who always sparkles best in a smoother setting – and the polished mid 80s style of this one helps her hit a new level of maturity – one that shines out strongly, even amidst some of the more electric backings – with enough jazzy inflections to remind us of Patti's roots, and her long association with Quincy Jones over the years. Titles include "It's Gonna Be Special", "Shoot The Moon", "Rhythm Of The Street", "Fine Fine Fella", "Starstruck", "Any Way You Can", and "Change Your Attitude". LP, Vinyl record album

AxidentalsAxidentals With The Kai Winding Trombones ... LP
ABC, 1958. Very Good ... $3.99
A groovy little vocal group with a swinging 50s sound – working here with some great jazzy arrangements from trombonist Kai Winding! The style of the set prefaces Winding's pop/jazz sides for Verve in the mid 60s – but has a sound that's somewhat similar – with lead vocals by the male/female Axidentals group, and some trombone-based jazzy backings that showcase Winding's horn amidst a larger brass section. There's a great poppy punch to these tunes – and the Axidentals themselves can be credited for some extremely inventive vocal arrangements at times – in styles that go way beyond those of conventional groups of the period, in a mode that reminds us of some of the work by the Kirby Stone Four or the John LaSalle Quartet. Titles include "Walkin", "Out Of This World", "You Gotta Wail", "No Moon At All", "Day In Day Out", and "Close To You". LP, Vinyl record album

Roy AyersAfrica, Center Of The World ... CD
Polydor/Soul Brother (UK), 1981. New Copy ... $16.99
Roy Ayers in a very Afro-styled mode – working here on his own after a famous collaboration with Fela Kuti – in a set that's filled with the same sort of hard-driving Afro-Funk grooves that you'd find in Fela's classic recordings! The songs are shorter than Fela's, and with more of Roy's usual smooth jazzy production style – but the overall influence is very much in the Afro-Funk vein, and the album's sort of a "part 2" to the Music Of Many Colors set that was cut a few years before. William Allen worked on the record with Roy – playing choppy Afro-Funk bass, and arranging and producing a lot of the material with Roy and Jaymz Bedford – and the record also features a host of extra percussion players, as well as some vocals by the lovely Sylvia Striplin. Includes the great groover "Africa, Center Of The World", plus "The River Niger", and a great remake of "Third Eye", which was on Everybody Loves The Sunshine, but is redone here with a heavier sound! Other tracks include "There's A Masterplan", "I'll Just Keep Trying", and "Destination Motherland". CD

New Roy AyersFever ... CD
Polydor/Soul Brother (UK), 1979. New Copy ... $16.99
A great little album by Roy Ayers – one that features none of his hits, which means lots of fresh material – and which has great examples of both sides of Roy's talents at the time! The dancefloor side of Roy kicks in with "Love Will Bring Us Back Together", an extremely catchy groover that's very much in the mode of "Running Away", with plenty of choppy funky riffs, and a good soul base at the core. Even better, though, is the mellow spacey side of Roy – which shows up wonderfully in the cuts "Is It Too Late To Try" and "If You Love Me" – two overlooked gems that float along in a perfect blend of jazz and modern soul, with great breathy vocals and vibes, very much in the spirit of stuff on the You Send Me album. Other cuts include "I Wanna Feel It", "Leo", "Take Me Out To The Ball Game", and "Simple & Sweet" – all nice too! CD

One of Roy Ayers' best-remembered albums of the 70s – a sublime blend of mellow numbers and some of his more club-oriented grooves of the time – all wrapped together with a genius that we can only describe as Ayers-like! The album's a beautiful example of the balance that Roy was striking in his work at the time – because alongside some of the more upbeat, catchy numbers, there's other tracks that are a fair bit more laidback, and almost abstract at times – a wonderful extrapolation of that sensitive Ayers blend of jazz and soul, with key emphasis on the vibes and keyboards. Titles include the massive groover "Running Away" – which you'll recognize from a key sample history over the years – and club cuts "Cincinnati Growl", "Fruit", "Sanctified Feeling", and "Stranded In The Jungle" – plus the more laidback cuts "Gotta Find A Lover", "I Still Love You", "Lifeline", and "This Side Of Sunshine".

One of the best early soul albums by Roy Ayers! Roy's working here with Dee Dee Bridgewater, Edwin Birdsong, William Allen, Harry Whitaker, and other hip players – a perfect crew to forge Roy's unique blend of jazz and soul. This is perhaps the first record to really have Roy stretching out in this mode – moving more fully away from funky jazz, into a ream of vocal tracks that would make him one of the most unique artists of the 70s. This mid 70s period of Roy's career was remarkably fertile, creatively as well as for sheer productivity – and Tears To A Smile is one of them that shows some the most artistic growth, and also a deeper sense of soul! Features righteous cuts like "2000 Black", "Ebony Blaze", "Time & Space", and "A Tear To A Smile" – plus the mellow "Magic Lady", and a great remake of Earth Wind & Fire's "That's The Way Of The World".

Polydor, 1976. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
One of Roy Ayers' greatest albums of the 70s – a set that tightens up the groove from previous Polydor productions, yet still keeps all the soul intact! The record picks up the style begun with the Mystic Voyage album, and pushes it to some slightly tighter territory – a more focused Roy Ayers sound that's totally great, and which makes the album sparkle wonderfully throughout! All aspects of Roy's talents are perfectly balanced here – his warm vocals and jazzy vibes, his uptempo grooves and mellower rhythms – played to perfection by a hip lineup of players that includes Philip Woo on electric piano, Justo Almario on tenor sax, and Steve Cobb on drums. Edwin Birdsong guests a bit on the record – bringing in a nice edge to a few tunes – the album's got a really unique dark undercurrent, even in smoother moments – that subtle Roy Ayers' approach that's always made him one of our all-time favorite artists. Titles include the wonderful jazz-tinged "Searching", a great midtempo stepper that we really love; the funky break track "The Memory", a righteous number that feels like work from earlier records; the clubby classic "One Sweet Love to Remember"; and the sweet instrumental "Vibrations", which has a mellow kickback feel! Other tunes include "Higher", "Domelo (Give It To Me)", "Baby I Need Your Love", and "Better Days". CD

Polydor, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A great little album from Roy Ayers – a very funky record that's almost all instrumental all the way through! The sound is a bit in the vein of Roy's Live At Montreux set – but funkier overall, thanks to some very heavy rhythms on the bottom – and an approach to the tunes that's short, tight, and very much on the money! In addition to Roy's great vibes, the set also features Harry Whitaker on electric piano, Jimmy Owens and Cecil Bridgewater on trumpets, Garnett Brown on trombone, and Dennis Davis on drums and percussion – all very hip players who really help Roy find the mix of jazz and funk he was going for at the time. Dee Dee Bridgewater sings a bit of vocals on the record, joining Roy on the sublime spiritual track "Love From The Sun" – but most other tracks on the album have a more instrumental approach. The record includes a great remake of Leroy Hutson's track "Giving Love", sung more famously by Voices of East Harlem, and it's also got a nice funky cover of the hit "Brother Louie" – plus the tracks "The Morning After", "Des Nude Soul", "Virgo Red", "Love From The Sun", and "I Am Your Mind".

Badu is back with some of the deepest, funkiest and best music of her career – a mindblowing treatise for a New Amerykah – and what we'll consider an instant classic whether the world at large catches on or not! Erykah steps up this time with a set that balances the wilder impulses of her criminally underappreciated Worldwide Underground and more of a hip hop based, righteously grooving style – but still bursts with a freshness that's unrivaled to say the least. From free spirited soul, to sparse hip hop funk this record is both blunt and beautiful – with a slow-building emotional resonance that'll reach the most jaded souls. Modern soul music of the first order that gives us goosebumps from the first spin to the last beat! The album kicks off with Erykah riffing on and remixing Ramp's "American Promise" as an intro – and it just gets deeper from there. Producers/collaborators include Madlib, Sa-Ra, Karriem Riggins, James Poyser and ?uestlove. Amazing!!! Titles include "The Healer", "Me", "My People", "Soldier", "The Cell", "Twinkle", "Master Teacher", "The Hump" and "Telephone". The 9th Wonder produced single "Honey" is an unlisted bonus track. CD

A Brazilian underground classic from the early 70s – mindblowing work that mixes heavy percussion with lots of guitar – in a style that's samba soul one minute, but heavier rock the next! There's a bit of a Jorge Ben influence going on at times – particularly in the way the record uses quickly-strummed acoustic guitar next to the earthy rhythms – but the overall sound is also a bit more fragile at times, and rougher around the edges, especially at its most expressive moments. But that quality only serves to make the album more striking – an instantly captivating set that needs no previous cultural knowledge at all! Really tremendous stuff – the kind of lost treasure that will have you scratching your head, but loving it at the same time!

The core record – Here To Stay – is incredible work from the great Banks – one of the few albums this genius Detroit soul singer cut before his untimely early death! Darrell's got a raw sound and a way with a groove that makes him a perfect choice for late 60s Stax/Volt Records – and he works here with Detroit studio genius Don Davis – who really knows how to mix the rough and the smooth in a perfect way – very different than both the usual Memphis or Detroit soul of the time! Tracks are very well-written – each one's a total lost nugget – and the arrangements have this punch that works perfectly with Banks' tremendous vocals. Titles include "I Could Never Hate Her", "My Love is Reserved", "No One Blinder", "Just Because Your Love Is Gone", and "We'll Get Over". CD then includes a wealth of bonus tracks – some previously unissued – including "Love Is Not An Easy Thing (demo)", "Mama Give Me Some Water (demo)", "Love Why Have You Forsaken Me (demo)", "Just Because Your Love Is Gone (single version)", "No One Blinder (single version)", and "Beautiful Feeling (single version)".

Harvest/Parlophone, 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
The brilliant full exposure of the voice that was always buried in the larger sounds of Pink Floyd – a definite madcap romp from the amazing Syd Barrett – and a record that still sounds as captivatingly chilling all these many decades later! There's a stripping-down here that's really tremendous – no need for all the overblown, long-winded excursions of other forces in the psych generation – as Syd takes the whole thing down to its core, and carries it off with a charm that's almost folksy – yet which, like David Bowie at about this point in his career, manages to manipulate and dismiss the folk generation as much as it does the psych one too! David Gilmour and Roger Waters are on hand to help a bit with production – and titles include "Octopus", "Golden Hair", "Long Gone", "She Took A Long Cool Look", "Late Night", "If It's In You", "Love You", and "Terrapin".

Ray BarrettoLa Cuna ... LP
CTI, 1981. Near Mint- ... $11.99
A nice jammer from the "second wind" period of CTI – and a strong return to Latin jazz for Ray! The set's a great mixture of smooth CTI electric funk and Latin-oriented grooves – and it features work by Ray on congas and percussion, plus a list of players that includes Tito Puente, Charlie Palmieri, Steve Gadd, John Tropea, Carlos Franzetti, and Willie Torres. The melds the styles beautifully – with plenty of languid, rubbery jamming with percussion that thumps just hard enough! Really kind of a stunner from '79 – one that came at welcome time for both Barretto and CTI! Includes the great electric Latin groover "Mambotango", plus "The Old Castle", "La Cuna", and a sublime vocal remake of Stevie Wonder's "Pastime Paradise"! LP, Vinyl record album

Ray BarrettoQue Viva La Musica (remastered edition) ... CD
Fania, 1972. New Copy ... $9.99 10.99
Fantastic stuff from Ray Barretto – and one of his most sophisticated albums of the 70s! The album mixes together rootsy percussion and smoother jazzy arrangements – in a manner that keeps things fresh at all points, and which shifts the focus nicely from track to track – creating a really rich sound that's almost unlike anything else he ever recorded! Luiz Cruz plays excellent electric piano, and Adalberto Santiago is on lead vocals on a few tracks – and titles include the extended version of "Cocinando", used as the theme in Our Latin Thing – plus the cuts "Que Viva La Musica", "El Tiempo Lo Dira", "Bruca Manigua", and "Alafia Cumaye".

Keith BarrowPhysical Attraction (with bonus tracks) ... CD
CBS/FTG, 1978. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
A great secular set from Keith Barrow – a singer who started in gospel, but who's always been best-remembered for this modern soul gem from the 70s! Keith's got a great range to his vocals – one you can hear right from the start, as he dips and soars effortlessly with a quality that's clearly inspired by the spirit – but set here to some wicked smooth soul arrangements from Johnny Allen. The album's got a mix of clubby moments and some even better laidback cuts – and the set also features a few tunes penned by Ronn Matlock, an under-credited master of modern soul. Titles include "Turn Me Up", "Physical Attraction", "You Know You Want To Be Loved", "If It's Love That You're Looking For", "Garden Of Love", and "Free To Be Me". CD features bonus tracks – "Turn Me Up (special disco version)", "Turn Me Up (inst)", "Physical Attraction (12" mix)", and "You Know You Want To Be Loved (7" mix)". CD

Claudja BarrySweet Dynamite (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Salsoul/Octave (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $21.99
An early hit for Salsoul Records – a set of extended European disco tracks, all building in a nice slow, layered sort of way – then remixed by Tom Moulton for the US dancefloor! The tunes have this instrumental structure that almost doesn't even need the vocals of Claudja Barry – especially the title track, which has this sweet-stepping keyboard line that's really beautiful – more of the hook of the tune than the lyrics themselves. Strings swirl stronger as the album moves on – and Claudja more than redeems herself on the cut "Dance Dance Dance", which is a nice bit of dancefloor funk that really stands out! The other cuts include "Live A Little Bit", "Sweet Dynamite", and "Love For The Sake Of Love". CD features bonus tracks – "It Takes Two", a duet with Ronnie Jones – plus single mixes of "Sweet Dynamite" and "This Taste Of Love". CD

John BarryKing Kong ... LP
Paramount, 1976. Sealed ... $11.99
John Barry's music for the blockbuster 1976 remake of King Kong – surprisingly sensitive at points, given the action on the screen of the film! Barry's got a great ear for sounds that underscore the sensitivity of the big ape – and his scoring here is a good illustration of his continued growth in the 70s – the way he moved into even more mature territory at a time when he could have easily just kept churning out hit themes. A few tunes show some 70s touches as the action ramps up, but overall most of the orchestrations have a timeless feel that's quite surprising – and which have a bit more durability than the film itself!

Count BasieCount Basie Big Band – Live Montreux 77 ... LP
Pablo, 1977. Very Good+ ... $3.99
The 70s Count Basie Band in all their glory – recorded live in extremely tight formation at the 1977 Montreux Jazz Festival! Despite the live setting, the recording quality here is impeccable – easily on a par with most of the group's studio dates from the decade, especially in the way that Basie's piano thunders out in front of the rest of the group! Players include Sonny Cohn, Bobby Mitchell, Al Grey, Jimmy Forrest, Eric Dixon, and Freddie Green – and although tracks are short, they're still filled with a good sense of surprise – that Basie dynamics that really started kicking in during the 50s, and which held on strong on records like this! Titles include "The More I See You", "Night In Tunisia", "The Heat's On", "Freckle Face", "Splanky", "I Needs To Be Bee'd With", "Lil Darlin", and "Bag Of Dreams". LP, Vinyl record album

This is a great set of Shirley's groove-happy work cut in the late 60s – hip tunes arranged by UK easy maestro Johnny Harris, best known for his fantastic work on the Stepping Stones record under his own name, forever a beathead classic! Features the great, funky big band version of "Light My Fire" – one of Shirley's best tunes ever, and a cut that's been sampled and remixed often in recent years! Also includes the breakbeat version of "Spinning Wheel", and the cuts "My Way", "Sea & Sand", "What About Today?", "You & I", "Easy To Be Hard", "Life Goes On" and "Yesterday I Heard The Rain".

Joe BataanMestizo ... LP
Salsoul, 1980. Very Good ... $11.99
One of the best later albums from Joe Bataan – a really wonderful little set that takes off strongly from the salsoul experiments he first began on the Afrofilipino album! The album's got a great blend of clubby rhythms and Latin soul touches – all arranged by Marty Sheller, and carried off by Joe with soulful vocals that still retain a fair bit of the heartbreaking qualities of the older days. There's a punch and funky undercurrent here that was often missing from other Salsoul albums – and titles include the great "Rap O Clap O", which is kind of a remake of Cheryl Lynn's "To Be Real" – plus "Sadie (She Smokes)", "Mestizo", "Rock Me All Night Long", and "Latin Lover".

New Joe BataanRiot ... LP
Fania, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A real killer from the legendary Joe Bataan – an album of righteous power that really lives up to the dynamic promise of the title and cover! Joe Bataan's in top form throughout – serving up a blend of Latin grooves and 60s soul influences that few other artists of the time could touch – soaring and upbeat one minute, but mellow and laidback the next. There's a number of longer tracks on here that really move past the standard Latin Soul modes – bringing in bits of descarga jazz, instrumental soul, and mellower ballads to Joe's already-great blend of styles. The depth here is tremendous, and nearly every track's a winner! Titles include the slamming "It's A Good Feeling (Riot)", "Muneca", and "Mambo De Bataan" – plus the soul tracks "What Good Is A Castle", "My Cloud", "Daddy's Coming Home", "Ordinary Guy", and "For Your Love".

New Joe BataanSaint Latin's Day Massacre ... LP
Fania, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A real turning point for Joe Bataan – and the beginning of his funky Latin sound of the 70s! The album was one of the first in Joe's "Salsoul" style – a sweet blend of Latin rhythms, late 60s Latin soul influences, and some of the hipper styles bubbling through the NuYorican scene. A few cuts are in the sweet soul ballad mode of Joe's earlier years – but there's others that pick up the groove nicely, and add in some guitar and vibes for a sweet electrified groove. Includes a great remake of "Theme From Shaft", plus the two-part "I Wish You Love", "If I Were A King", "Coco E", "El Regreso", and "Charangaringa". LP, Vinyl record album

Les BaxterFruit Of Dreams (Ports Of Pleasure/The Sacred Idol) ... CD
Capitol/El (UK), 1957/1960. New Copy ... $4.99
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

New Les BaxterHouse Of Usher ... CD
Intrada, 1960. New Copy ... $19.99
A surprisingly complex score from the great Les Baxter – written for Roger Corman's famous film version of The Fall Of The House Of Usher! The music is quite lush at times – more orchestral than some of the Baxter exotica from the same period, but still filled with lots of great little twists and turns – especially as the narrative moves on – that ear for odd sounds and unusual tunings that made Les one of the real standouts of his generation! There's lots of weird watery passages, moody reed tones, and offbeat string sounds – and this great reissue features remastered sound and a full booklet of notes. Titles include "Madeline Usher", "Roderick Usher", "Buried Alive", "Catalepsy", "Pallbearers", and "The Ancestors". CD

Reissue of two early 10" Theremin LPs – music by Harry Revel, arrangements by Les Baxter, and theremin by Dr. Samuel Hoffman. Great early theremin stuff, with large orchestral backings that have a really spooky feel to them. The theremin's not as out front as it is in early sci fi soundtracks, but you can really hear it slide in and out of spooky tracks like "This Room is My Castle of Quiet", "Radar Blues", and "Moon Moods".

BB & Q BandGenie (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Elektra/PTG (France), 1985. Used ... $6.99
The last true classic from the masters of the 80s groove genre – a post-Capitol effort for Elektra, but one that's still awash in great keyboards and snapping electro beats! Some of the jazzier sound from the past is gone here, but in its place is a leaner, cleaner sound that's still a fair bit more compelling than most work by the group's contemporaries! Nearly all tracks snap along with rhythms that are nicely placed between the street and the dancefloor – never gimmicky and never too cloying, and tightly focused enough to make the most of the hooks in the vocals. Lots of DX7 on the album, and more than a few numbers have a great sort of breakdance vibe. Tracks include "Riccochet" and "Dreamer" – both remixed by Shep Pettibone –"On The Shelf", "Genie", "Main Attraction", and "Don't Force It". CD features 6 bonus tracks – including "Dreamer (no 1 rmx)", "Main Attraction (finest rmx)", "Dreamer (Shep's dream version)", "Riccochet (Ben Liebrand mix)", and "Dreamer (Shep Pettibone long voc version)".

New Beach BoysPet Sounds (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol, 1966. Used ... $2.99
One of the greatest records of all time – and don't you forget it! Despite the countless lines of type that have been written about this record, nothing does it full justice like an all-through listen – something we're reminded of every time we put this one on the turntable, which is a heck of a lot over the years! Brian Wilson busted his ass making this little gem – and the rest of the world, and the band, were never the same again – awash in harmonies that most other groups tried to match, set to themes of young loss, longing, and frustration that really mark an emotional development – not just in the Beach Boys, but in pop music in general. And although some of the tracks are ones you've heard a million times on oldies stations, they somehow resonate together much more strongly here – taking on new meaning as the smaller elements of each song come into constellation with each other – creating a complicated tapestry of feelings set to near-godlike orchestrations. Titles include "God Only Knows", "Caroline No", "Pet Sounds", "I Just Wasn't Made for These Times", "Wouldn't It Be Nice", and "You Still Believe In Me". Also features bonus tracks "Unreleased Backgrounds", "Hang On To Your Ego", and "Trombone Dixie". CD

Other tracks include "Help Me Rhonda (45 single version)", "California Girls", "I'm Bugged At My Old Man", and "Amusement Parks USA". LP, Vinyl record album

A back-to-basics album of sorts – shorter, catchier songs recorded by the group after the collapse of Smile – but a record that still has some really wonderful moments overall – and which shows that The Beach Boys would never be the same after Pet Sounds! There's a mix of older rock themes and new adult ones here – sung by a group who's really growing into their emotions, and approaching things from new directions than in the past. Heartbreak and happiness are both center stage here – often at the same time – and titles include a great remake of Stevie Wonder's "I Was Made To Love Her", the haunting "Let The Wind Blow", the hippie-esque "Country Air", and lots more nice ones like "Wild Honey", "Aren't You Glad", "A Thing Or Two", "How She Boogalooed It", "Her Comes The Night", and "Mama Says".

Def Jam, 1986. New Copy ... $4.99 5.98
The game-changing Def Jam classic from the mid 80s – and still possibly the greatest album by the Beastie Boys – even though they'd grow up a whole lot after this! The Beasties later distanced themselves from much of the attitude of this album, and you can't fault the Boys for maturing. Their genesis from stoopid (as opposed to stupid) to thoughtful and playful innovators is as impressive as just about any artistic evolution we can think of, but that doesn't make these party anthems any less amazing! With all the killer cuts you remember – "Rhymin & Stealin", "The New Style", "Girls", "Fight For Your Right To Party", "No Sleep Til Brooklyn", "Paul Revere", "Hold It Now Hit It", "She's Crafty", and more.

Beats InternationalLet Them Eat Bingo ... CD
Elektra/Collectors Choice, 1990. Used ... $1.99
A big one for Norman Cook – caught here in his post-Housemartins, pre-Fatboy Slim years – working here in a playful blend of beats and samples that really point the way towards his later chart fame to come! The tracks here have a simple elegance that might have sounded dated a few years after release, but which is now finally beginning to win us over again – a really basic use of musical elements to construct a beat-heavy tune – one that's decidedly poppy, given all the hooks and vocals in the album, but which is also kind of refreshing to hear these days, considering all the wrong directions such efforts took in later years! The straightforward Cook remix approach is in full effect here – with one key idea hung on each tune – but it's also an approach that works well when not to much is expected of it, as you'll hear on tracks that include "Dance To The Drummer's Beat", "Dub Be Good To Me", "Burundi Blues", "Blame It On The Bassline", "Tribute To King Tubby", and "Babies Makin Babies".

New William BellWow/Bound To Happen ... CD
Stax, 1969/1971. Used ... $12.99
Late 60s magic from William Bell – two tremendous albums on a single CD! Wow is a record that definitely earns the "wow" in its title – as it makes us sit up and take new notice of William Bell's talents! Although Bell's best known for his earliest Memphis hits, he really changed a lot near the end of the 60s – evolving into a hipper, more mature singer capable of reaching new heights with his vocals – and touching on themes that go way beyond the early years. Part of the strength of the record is also due to the production – a full, proud effort helmed by Al Bell – and featuring contributions from a galaxy of Memphis and Muscle Shoals talents who include The Bar-Kays, Booker T, Eddie Hinton, and The Memphis Horns! Titles include the amazing track "I Forgot To Be Your Lover" – a number that really redefined William's sound – plus "You'll Want Diamonds", "I Can't Make It", "All For The Love Of A Woman", "My Door Is Always Open", and "I Can't Make It (All By Myself)". Bound To Happen is killer work from William Bell – a record that has him really unfolding and growing at the end of the 60s – taking off with a new sort of energy that we hardly would have expected a few years before! The sound here is nicely deep and mature – still in a classic Memphis mode, but with nods to some of the changes going on in soul all around the country from in the 60s – a style that sifts in some of the best righteous elements from other scenes, then wraps them up nicely with a sweet Tennessee glow. Titles include covers of "Western Union Man" and "Everyday People", plus a number of great post-1968 Stax tunes, most of which were written by Booker T. Jones – including "Johnny I Love You", "All God's Children Got Soul", and "A Smile Can't Hide". CD
