Keith EmersonInferno (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Cinevox/AMS (Italy), 1980. New Copy (reissue)... Around October 5, 2014 (delayed)
Dario Agento hired aging prog rock star Keith Emerson for this 1980 horror soundtrack, and the overall approach used by Emerson is similar to some of his solo instrumental work from the late 70s – with lots of keyboard-heavy tracks (acoustic piano, organ, electric piano) that show off Emerson's virtuosity and classical training. The score has some elements that are similar to some of Argento's other soundtracks – like the contemporary work by Goblin – but it's also much more of an Emerson-driven album. The whole thing's remastered here and presented with a total of 15 tracks that include "Mark's Discovery", "Rose Gets It", "Elisa's Story", "Inferno", and "Taxi Ride". LP, Vinyl record album

Georgie Fame & Alan PriceFame & Price/Price & Fame/Together ... CD
Made In Germany (Germany), New Copy ... Early December, 2014
A great reunion of two grown-up figures from the bluesier side of the British scene of the 60s – vocalist Georgie Fame and ex-Animal Alan Price, both of whom really sound great together! After leaving The Animals, Price worked strongly in the UK as a solo act – often hitting grooves that were similar to Fame's R&B-drenched material, and making him a great counterpart for an album like this. Fame's style is tighter and warmer than Price's – and the numbers that feature both artists singing together have a great sense of interplay – two very unique voices that are extremely comfortable with each other, and encourage a nice sense of personality and presence. Overall, the album's often a bit more bluesy than Fame's usual work – but in a great way that illustrates that he was always up for a new mode of expression. Titles include "John & Mary", "The Dole Song", "Yellow Man", "Rosetta", "I Can't Take It Much Longer", "Blue Condition", "Ballad Of Billy Joe", and "Home Is Where Your Heart Is". CD

Grant GreenStreet Of Dreams (75th anniversary edition) ... LP
Blue Note, 1964. New Copy (reissue)... Around December 23, 2014
One of our favorite albums ever from guitarist Grant Green – an amazingly stretched-out session that's served up with a good deal of modal jazz in the rhythms – and a date that features killer work from Larry Young on organ and Bobby Hutcherson on vibes! The pair join Green in a quartet that also includes Elvin Jones on drums – who provides a loose, fluid approach to rhythm that really sets the tone for the date – a flowing vibe that folds together the organ, guitar, and vibes beautifully – with an incomparable floating vibe that's pure magic! All tracks are long and very open – and titles include "Street Of Dreams", "Somewhere In The Night", and "Lazy Afternoon". LP, Vinyl record album

HeatHeat (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
MCA/Vivid (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... Around December 17, 2014
Nothing too hot here, as Heat's got a nicely cool feel – a groove that's laidback and easygoing, a perfect fit for the sophisticated sound of soul at the start of the 80s! There's a jazzy feel in the instrumentation that we really love – kind of an extension of the Wayne Henderson sound of the late 70s, compressed a bit more towards a tighter soul groove, but still with all the warmth that reference might imply. Vocals are by male and female singers, often wrapped together nicely – and titles include "It's Up To You", "Just Like You", "This Love That We've Found", "Don't You Walk Away", "Side Steppin", and "Billet Doux".

Andrew HillBlack Fire (75th anniversary edition) ... LP
Blue Note, 1963. New Copy (reissue)... Around December 23, 2014
Insanely wonderful music from Andrew Hill – a lean, stripped-down session that has Hill working at his firey best – in a space that's somewhere between the "new thing" recordings of Jackie McLean, and the brooding brilliance of Andrew's later Smokestack session! The group here has some key figures fleshing out the sound – a young Joe Henderson, blowing tenor with a very edgey quality – the very versatile Richard Davis on bass – and the great Roy Haynes on drums, very much at his most fluid interpretation of rhythm! The whole set's pretty darn great – one of the more mindblowing Blue Notes you'll ever hope to buy – and tracks include "Pumpkin", "Subterfuge", "Cantarnos", and "McNeil Island".

Marquis HillPoet ... CD
Skiptone, 2013. New Copy ... Mid-November, 2014 (delayed)
A sweet debut from trumpeter Marquis Hill – an up and coming talent on the Chicago scene, and a player who's already finding a strong voice of his own! Hill's style of blowing works in these fluid lines that combine nicely with the album's work on vibes from Justin Thomas – a mode that rings out beautifully with a fresh quality of its own, but with echoes that almost make us think of some lost 70s session from Art Farmer and Bobby Hutcherson! Christopher McBride plays alto in the group, and his deft lines really add a nice degree of complexity to the record – some of the most expressive moments in the whole set, and a great counterpart to the work on vibes and trumpet. Other players are all Windy City locals, and the set's got a few spoken passages – which underscore the righteous quality of the music. All titles are originals by Hill – and include "Return Of The Student", "B-Tone", "Giovanna", "Nouvelle Orleans", "The Poet", "Vella", and "The Color Of Fear". CD

Evelyn Champagne KingMusic Box (with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/FTG, 1979. New Copy ... Around December 15, 2014
Niceness from Evelyn King to cap the end of the 70s! She's really in great form here – stepping out with some fully clubby backings, and working with the mighty T-Life, who's really got a great ear for her groove! The style's a bit less disco than previous albums – some simpler soul at points, mixed with other upbeat modes that hearken a bit more towards the sound of the dancefloor in the early 80s – almost a precursor to that decade's groove at points. Evelyn's vocals are proudly soaring throughout – never too over the top, and always right on the money – and tracks include "Music Box", "I Think My Heart Is Telling", "Out There", "It's OK", "No Time For Fooling Around", and "Make Up Your Mind". This FTG edition has 4 bonus tracks: "Music Box (12" Version)", "Out There (12" Version)", "Make Up Your Mind (12" Version)" and "Out There (7" Version)". CD

New Country FunkCountry Funk ... LP
Polydor, 1970. Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
Swirling, harmony enriched psychedelic country rock from Country Funk – an odd record that's kind of a more psychedelia tinged sibling to to sounds of west coast groups of the Gram Parsons, Byrds and CSN & Y era! There's nothing particularly funky about the sound – Country Psyche might have been a more literal moniker – with excellent group harmonies, buzzing guitar fuzz, changing melodic lines and more than enough rural rock elements to keep it in a terrestrial groove! Rumor has it Beck sampled something on this little gem for the Odelay album – and the titles include "Apart Of Me", "Phoebe (Morning Pink)", "Really My Friend", "Not This Time", "For Me", "Poor Boy", "A Way To Settle Down", "When I'm Without You", "Comin' In", "If I Find A Way (Song Of Love)", "Another Miss" and "Want".

New VariousWithout Limits Presented By The Modern Soul Collective ... CD
Outta Sight (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Massive modern soul – hand-picked by the UK's Modern Soul Collective with a sweet selection of classics and some especially nice overlooked gems! The groove here is smooth, but never sleepy – upbeat, but not really disco – and instead that great blend of modes that really characterized the modern soul sound of the late 70s and early 80s! The package is designed as a follow-up to the previous No Boundaries collection, but we honestly dig it even more than that one – and the CD features a few more recent cuts mixed in with the older classics too. Titles include "You're Messing Up A Good Thing" by Heywood Cash, "Looks Like Rain" by Main Ingredient, "We Need Love" by Directions Band, "The Magic That You Do" by The Realistics, "Too Many People (Blacksmith dancehall mix)" by Pauline Henry, "Can You Feel My Love" by Khemistry, "I'll Be True" by Cookie Woodson, "Under Construction" by Al Supersonic & The Teenagers, "In The City" by Jesse Gomez & SWB, "Rough Out Here" by The Modulations, "Strip Me Naked" by Love Peace & Happiness, and "Make It Last" by DJ Jazzy Jeff with Ayah.
