Record Album FrameBlack Record Album Frame ... Misc
Harbortown, 2004. New Copy ... $11.99
Beautiful! This is a cool little frame that lets you put a favorite record cover on the wall, without damaging the cover or the record! The frame is much much better than some of the others on the market – and has a black matte aluminum body, with a clear plexiglass front to display the cover. The whole thing's very easy to use, and you can change covers as often as you like – so that you can rotate the images on your wall, and create an ever-changing gallery of record art! We like these a lot more than expected – and the frame's a perfect way to show off some of those great covers you've been buying from Dusty Groove! Misc

Bonnie Prince Billy & The Cairo GangWondershow Of The World ... CD
Drag City, 2010. Used ... $9.99
Perennial indie folk rock bar raiser Bonnie Prince Billy has done it again with Wondershow Of The World – his third truly excellent album to be released in the stretch of a couple years, not even including the charming vinyl-only live LP – this time co-captaining the vessel with Emmett Kelly & The Cairo Gang. The album has a sparer vibe than the sometimes lushly accented roots rock and creaky, if still quite gorgeous warmth of the past couple gems. The sparseness does well to frame Oldham's voice just the way we want to hear it. We don't know how he keeps churning out such excellent records, but it's pretty great to be able to fearlessly look forward to everything Bonnie Prince Billy puts out! Titles include "Troublesome Houses", "Teach Me To Bear You", "The Sounds Are Always Begging", "Go Folks, Go", "Merciless And Great", "Someone Coming Through" and "Kids". CD

Channels/Continentals/Bop-Chords/Love-NotesRumble ... CD
Jubilee/Warner (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... $13.99
One of Jubilee Records' excellent collections of earlier vocal group material – served up in a cool covered package with some nice Scorpio Rising overtones! The collection doesn't exactly come across with the violence implied by the name, and most material here has a style that's older than the cover image would imply – but the album, like others in the series, was a key format for presenting cuts known only as singles – at a level that gave them a bit more prominence in the market. The whole thing's great – music that's at the best level of early group soul on the New York scene – and titles include "Fine Fine Frame" and "Dear Lord" by The Continentals, "The Gleam In Your Eye" and "The Closer You Are" by The Channels, "Castle In The Sky" and "When I Woke Up This Morning" by The Bop Chords, and "If I Could Make You Mine" and "Tonight" by The Love Notes.

Brian ColemanCheck The Technique Vol 2 – More Liner Notes For Hip Hop Junkies (paperback) ... Book
Wax Facts Press, 2014. New Copy ... $25.99 27.98
Golden age of hip hop historian Brian Coleman's second Check The Technique tome – the in-depth stories behind some of the greatest records of the 80s and early 90s – an even greater collection than the first volume! Coleman's approach is straight-forward and direct – chronicling a choice selection of 25 bonafide classic albums, breaking them down track-by-track, peppered by interviews with the artists, producers and other principle personalities behind the work, for the most honest histories that Coleman can get. Volume 2 uses a broader time frame than the previous collection, going as far back as 1981's Wild Style Breakbeats, and as recent as the late 90s for Mos Def & Talib Kweli's Black Star and The Coup's Steal This Album. Other records discussioned include The Cactus Album by 3rd Bass, A Wolf In Sheep's Clothing by Black Sheep, The Sun Rises In The East by Jeru The Damaja, Mantronix The Album, Raekwon's Only Built 4 Cuban Links, Stetsasonic In Full Gear, Stunts, Blunts & Hip Hop by Diamond & The Psychotic Neurotics and more. Like the author's Check The Technique Vol 1 and Rakim Told Me, it's vital hip hop history, breezily readable and engrossing as can be. 525 paperback pages, and each chapter includes photos of the artists, the records and associated singles, and other choice historical tidbits. Essential! Book
(Initial copies are signed by author Brian Coleman! Quantities extremely limited – get 'em while we got em!)

New Horace ParlanHappy Frame Of Mind (45rpm – 180 gram pressing) ... LP
Blue Note/Music Matters, 1963/1986. Sealed 2LP (reissue)... $39.99
Wicked work by pianist Horace Parlan – and one of his most stunning Blue Note sessions ever! The album was first recorded in 1963, but then kept on the shelf for years – seeing only brief release as part of a Booker Ervin package in the late 70s, and finally coming out with the proper cover and lineup at some point in the 80s! Why Blue Note waited so long is a mystery, because the album's a gem throughout – almost more important, and more starkly modern than any of Parlan's other work for the label. Booker Ervin leads the frontline on tenor, alongside Johnny Coles on trumpet, Grant Green on guitar, and the rhythm section of Butch Warren and Billy Higgins. Parlan's choice of material is fantastic – with a number of Africanist tracks that feature unique rhythmic patterns that really push the soloists! Titles include "A Tune For Richard", "Dexi", "Home Is Africa", "Kucheza Blues", and "Back From The Gig". LP, Vinyl record album

PortisheadThird ... CD
Mercury, 2008. Used ... $3.99
A decade since their previous effort, and 14 years since their previous masterpiece, Portishead returns with Third – and, oh, what a mindblowing third act. The first thing you'll realize about Third is that it's not Dummy Part 3 – a welcome and surprising trait – but it does take their earlier way with a spooky, brooding and ominous framework to new dimensions. Secondly, there's no obvious single – it's to be taken as a whole. Beth Gibbons's vocals are as soul wrenching as ever, and an overall stark, melancholic beauty connects Portishead '08 to the old stuff, but they go deeper. Some bits are quite minimalist, wringing emotion from a low strum, a distant chime, or a haunting bit of dissonance – other parts are more richly layered and even a bit jarring. Pulp cinematic aura, feedback textured psychedelia, haunting European pop, and traces of field recorded folk flavor the sound – they've dabbled in all of these elements before – but never with this particular feel. The sound of epiphany. How many acts in the pop realm create a whole new style with a classic album, and then pull off something nearly as great almost 15 years later, without ripping themselves off? Add Portishead to that small list. We'll call '08 early, this is the best pop album of the year. Titles include "Silence", "Hunter", "Nylon Smile", "The Rip", "We Carry On", "Deep Water", "Machine Gun", "Small", "Magic Doors", "Threads". CD

Souls Of Mischief/Adrian YoungeThere Is Only Now – The Ali Shaheed Muhammad Remixes (10 inch EP – on colored vinyl) ... LP
Linear Labs, 2014. New Copy ... $18.99 19.98
A great little companion piece to the Adrian Younge-produced There Is Only Now record by golden age of hip hop veterans Souls Of Mischief – remixed here by fellow 90s era icon Ali Shaheed Muhammad! Ali appears on There Is Only Now-proper, too, serving as its narrator – but as one of the great hip hop producers of his generation, you gotta figure he'd be called upon to take a turn in the driver's seat on the production tip, and we're certainly glad he did. It includes ""Time Stopped", "Panic", "Another Side Of You", "All You Got Is Your Word", "There Is Only Now" – plus the instrumentall versions of each – done with a rawer, grittier feel that the album version. The Souls' rhymes are framed nicely by the gritty beats and it's absolutely a worthy companion to it. LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition orange colored vinyl.)

New Cheech & ChongSleeping Beauty ... LP
Ode, 1976. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Another hilarious Cheech & Chong record, and another cool die-cut sleeve, and guess what, it's a drug themed one too! This is the album with the quaalude shaped cover, and in case you weren't convinced, there's a load of druggy skits and other racy material, including "The Big Sniff", "The Adventure Of Red & Roy", "TWAT (Tactical Women's Alert Team)", "Pedro's Request", "Framed", "Jimmy", "Uncle Pervy" and "Sleeping Beauty". LP, Vinyl record album

New Roxy MusicCountry Life ... LP
EG, 1974. Used ... Out Of Stock
The fourth album from Roxy Music – and quite possibly the best to date! The album has the group moving strongly past the Eno years, into a tighter framework that still contains many of the darker themes of earlier records. Ferry's lead vocals are incredibly majestic – rising to heights to match the European greats of years past who were his inspiration – and the group's tight blend of reeds, guitar, and moody keyboards gives the whole album an off-kilter sense of instrumentation that really sets it apart from the pack. There's an artfulness here that's never overdone, and the whole thing comes together with a magic that's impossible to describe, but which is Roxy at their best. Titles include "Out Of The Blue", "The Thrill Of It All", "Three & Nine", "Triptych", "Casanova", and "Prairie Rose". LP, Vinyl record album
(US pressing on Atco in the uncensored cover, including the printed inner sleeve. Cover has light wear & a small peeled spot.)

New Mary HopkinPost Card ... LP
Apple, 1969. Used ... Out Of Stock
The sweet, lovely and lush full length debut of Mary Hopkin for Apple Records! Mary's vocals are fragile and sweet, and Paul McCartney's production frames it like a pillow on the softer tunes – with light bits of acoustic guitar – and makes are sound like the queen of all natural on the more grandly orchestrated tracks. 15 tracks on the original album, including "Those Were The Days", "Lord Of thE Reedy River", "Love Is The Sweetest Thing", "The Puppy Song", "Inchworm", "Young Love", "The Game", "Someone To Watch Over Me" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a split spine.)
