Howard RileyLive With Repertoire ... CD
No Business (Lithuania), 2013. New Copy .... $16.99
Howard Riley in a very Monkish mode – working here in a live solo setting, on a host of tracks that are either Monk classics from the postwar years, Thelonious-styled takes on standards, or a few of Riley's own great compositions! The set's got a sensitivity that we don't always hear from Riley – and the Monk connotations give the music a sense of historicity and roots that's really wonderful – even while Howard is still opening up and spinning things out with the same sense of space and sound that have made him a legend for decades. The recording quality is great – with a slight echo that only intensifies the feeling – and titles include "Well You Needn't", "Monk's Mood", "Ruby My Dear", "Now Two", "I'm Getting Sentimental Over You", "Signing Off", and "Darn That Dream".

Merry ClaytonGimme Shelter ... CD
Ode/Repertoire, 1970. New Copy .... $13.99 19.99
A classic from Merry Clayton – and a record whose title follows from her big fame of singing on the original version of "Gimme Shelter" by the Rolling Stones! The sound here is a lot more soul-based, as you'd guess – arranged beautifully by Gene Page, with a really righteous feel that's perfect for Merry's deeply soulful vocal approach – and produced to perfection by Lou Adler, with some surprising help from Curtis Amy – one of our favorite saxophonists ever. Music is by a hip cast of top-shelf talents from the coast – including Billy Preston on organ, Joe Sample on piano, David T Walker on guitar, and Paul Humphrey on drums – all nice and tight, but totally right in the pocket with their grooves. Titles include Merry's classic version of "Gimme Shelter", plus "Tell All The People", "I've Got Life", "Here Come Those Heartaches Again", and "Good Girls". CD

Merry ClaytonMerry Clayton ... CD
Ode/Repertoire, 1971. New Copy .... $13.99 19.99
Righteous and rocking soul from Merry Clayton! The set was done in LA with arrangements by insiders that include Jerry Peters, Carole King, and Billy Preston – and features some tight and sometimes funky backing from players that include David T Walker, Wilton Felder, Paul Humphrey, and Curtis Amy. Some of the tunes are a bit too rock-soul for our taste, but there are a few tasty bits on here that we really like – including a hip Leon Ware tune called "Whatever", a nice cover of Bill Withers' "Grandma's Hands", and Jerry Peters "Love Me Or Let Me Be Lonely". Other tracks include "Southern Man", "Same Old Story", "Walk On In", and "A Song For You". CD

Giorgio MoroderBest Of Electronic Disco – Deluxe Edition ... CD
Repertoire (Germany), 1970s. New Copy .... $16.99
Sweet early electro grooves from Giorgio Moroder – the German maestro who really helped transform the sound of the dancefloor in the 70s! The music here is heavy on beats and keyboards, but in a style that's quite different from club grooves in years to come – very much still in the warmer side of the disco spectrum, with a live energy that really keeps things compelling throughout! Moroder's been a key influence on house, techno, and other styles over the years – but there's still nothing like the greatness of the original grooves on this set! Titles include "Let The Music Play", "E=MC2", "From Here To Eternity (reprise)", "Utopia Me Giorgio", "First Hand Experience In Second Hand Love", "Too Hot To Handle", "I Wanna Rock You", "Solitary Man", "Knights In White Satin", "American Dream", and "Shannon's Eyes".

Giorgio MoroderE = MC2 (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Casablanca/Repertoire (Germany), 1979. New Copy .... $16.99
Classic dancefloor electronics from Giorgio Moroder – and the "first electronic live to digital album", which must have cost a bundle to make! Giorgio is in prime electro disco mode here – spinning out long lines of catchy synthesizer tunes – in a way that takes Kraftwerk aesthetic and turns it towards the dancefloor, and also tops it off with some nice pop-styled vocals too! According to the notes, Giorgio's working with "music programmed as bursts of energy" – but to us, it's just plain groovy disco! Tracks are long, and titles include "I Wanna Rock You", "Baby Blue", "What A Night", "If You Weren't Afraid", and "In My Wildest Dreams". CD features three bonus tracks too – single versions of "Baby Blue", "If You Weren't Afraid", and "I Wanna Rock You". CD

Giorgio MoroderSchlagermoroder Vol 1 – 1966 to 1975 ... CD
Repertoire (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD .... $19.99
Not disco Moroder, but schlager Moroder – great early recordings from German maestro Giorgio, done before his famous dancefloor hits of the later 70s – and with a very groovy sound throughout! The music here is more pop than soul, but often has these sweet and freaky little touches – a bit like the way that French pop artists of the late 60s would cop an American mode, then turn it around with some cool local touches of their own – or trip things out with a few inflections borrowed from psych or other new rock modes! Some tunes are playful and catchy, others are more ballsy and brash – especially as the set moves on, and the music hits those immediate pre-disco years that make for some of Moroder's most compelling. Massive 2CD package features 51 rare cuts from these early years – titles that include "Cinnamon", "Tempo D'Amore", "Underdog", "Watch Your Step", "Bla Bla Diddly", "Love's Morning Land", "Mah Na Mah Na", "Crippled Words", "Lie Lie Lie", "Collico", "Heaven Helps The Man", "Bricks & Mortar", "It's A Shame", and "Today's A Tomorrow".

Giorgio MoroderSchlagermoroder Vol 2 – 1966 to 1976 ... CD
Repertoire (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2 CDs .... $19.99
A second smoking set of rare early work from Giorgio Moroder – really groovy pop numbers done before his famous forays into disco and soundtracks – served up here in a mix of English and German language lyrics, all backed by some mighty cool instrumentation! There's an undercurrent of funk on lots of the numbers – some tight drums here, a bit of Hammond there, and a jaunty groove throughout that really keeps things playful and interesting – with plenty of elements from Brit mod and psych, filtered through Moroder's own rich imagination! The set's got 2CDs worth of gems – 42 tracks recorded under a variety of names – including "Nostalgie", "Marrakesh", "How Much Longer Must I Wait", "Son Of My Father", "Tears", and "Mah Na Mah Na" by Giorgio; "Action Man (parts 1 & 2)", "America America", and "Rhythm Of Love" by Spinach; "Liebesarie" and "Einzelganger" by Einzelganger; "Mony Mony" and "Mighty Quinn" by The Banana Crew; "Mr Strauss" and "Alle Analphabeten" by Johnny Schilling; and "Lord" and "Watch Your Step" by Children Of The Mission.

Giorgio MoroderSon Of My Father (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Dunhill/Repertoire (Germany), 1972. New Copy .... $18.99 23.99
Excellent early work from Giorgio Moroder – recorded in the pre-disco years, with a trippy rock style that mixes electronics and some surprisingly soulful guitar work! The overall style is almost a prog take on the beat group sound with some poppy touches – a cool blend that was shared briefly by other European groups of the time, before they stretched out and got a bit more trippy. The album's got some nice moogy touches, tight drums by Keith Forsey, and even a bit of keyboards from Max Gregor Jr. Most tracks have vocals, but also kick off with a strong foot instrumentally – making for some great rock break moments that are worth the album alone, even though the full songs are pretty nice too! Titles include the epic "Tears", "Lord Release Me", "Watch Your Step", "Pauline", "Son Of My Father", "Automation", "London Traffic", "Spanish Disaster", and "Underdog". CD features lots of bonus tracks too – including "Today's A Tomorrow", "Everybody Join Hands", "I'm Free Now", "Non Ci Sto", "Take It Shake It Break My Heart", and "Underdog (mono)". CD

Giorgio Moroder & Joe EsposSolitary Men (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Repertoire (Germany), 1983. New Copy .... $16.99
A unique collaboration from disco maestro Giorgio Moroder – a rare early 80s project done with vocals from singer Joe Esposito – who'd first risen to fame in the 70s trio Brooklyn Dreams! Joe's raspy lead gives the tunes a lyrical center you don't always get with Moroder – vocals that are sometimes more upfront than Giorgio's electronics and keyboards, and which definitely give the music a blue-eyed quality that should have made the set more of a crossover hit. The grooves still have plenty of Moroder touches at the bottom – and titles include "Lady Lady", "To Turn The Stone", "Washed In The Neon Light", "My Girl", "Solitary Man", "Too Hot To Touch", "A Love Affair", and "Show Me The Night". CD features lots of bonus tracks – "Face To face", "Chase (1985 rmx)", "A Love Affair (USA mix)", "Too Hot To Touch (inst)", "American Dream (7" version)", and "American Dream (12" version)". CD

Munich MachineBody Shine (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Casablanca/Repertoire (Germany), 1979. New Copy .... $13.99
A German disco classic from Munich Machine – and maybe the tightest album ever from the always-sharp studio group! Giorgio Moroder's at the head of the record on production, but the sound here is often a bit warmer than some of his own recordings – thanks to an ear for some of the more soulful instrumental sides of the dancefloor spectrum, particularly on the keyboard solos, which never have the coldness of Moroder's music – and thanks also to some well-placed vocals from soul singers Judith Jones and Yolande Howard, both of whom add a bit of personality to the record too! Yet that great Moroder ear for a dancefloor groove is still perfectly intact – as you'll hear on cuts that include "Let Your Body Shine", "Space Warrior", "Bolectro", "Easy", "Reputation", and "Fallen Angel". CD features two bonus tracks – "Space Warriors (blue eyed DJ rmx)", and "Giorgio Moroder Medley (blue eyed DJ rmx)". CD

New ExumaExuma II ... CD
Mercury/Repertoire (Germany), 1970. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A perfect follow-up to Exuma's first album on Mercury – and like that one, a really rootsy blend of soul, funk, and other global sounds! Percussion and acoustic guitar dominate most of the instrumentation – just right for the rough-edged vocals on the set – in ways that help underscore some of the more righteous themes in the lyrics! The whole sound is a great summation of the musical journey that Exuma's taken from his Bahamian roots – and titles include "Damn Fool","Paul Simon Nontooth", "Fire In The Hole", and "A Place Called Earth".

New Giorgio MoroderFrom Here To Eternity (with bonus track) ... CD
Oasis/Repertoire (Germany), 1977. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
A classic from the electro maestro – arguably the greatest American album from Giorgio Moroder! The set's got a great mix of disco and electronics that was years ahead of its time – and is surprisingly fresh and edgey, despite Moroder's fame over the years. Electronics are really at the core of all the tunes – bubbling, dipping, crackling around the groove – with only slight additional disco touches – and an overall sound that leans much more closely towards Kraftwerk than it does other work on the Casablanca label at the time. And we're really not fooling about this one – because it's got a raw electro vibe that still holds up beautifully, and which is more and more of a delight the farther we get from the 70s. Titles include "From Here To Eternity", "Lost Angeles", "Faster Than The Speed Of Love", "First Hand Experience In Second Hand Love", "I'm Left You're Right She's Gone", and "Too Hot To Handle". CD features a bonus single version of "From Here To Eternity". CD

Joe CubaSteppin' Out ... LP
Seeco, Early 60s. New Copy (reissue).... $9.99
Seminal early work from the legendary Joe Cuba – highly percussive Latin tracks, served up in a small combo mode that really helped pave the way for the Latin Soul generation! Joe's shaking off most of Latin tradition here – going for a tightly focused sound that features plenty of timbales and congas, and which also introduces a bit of English language to their repertoire – thanks to vocals by Jimmy Sabater on the track "To Be With You". Cheo Feliciano sings on a few other numbers, but a number of tracks are really cooking instrumentals! Titles include the great "Wabble Cha", plus "Oriente", "Callejero", "Salsa Y Bembe", "Cachondea", and "To Be With You", a big early hit for the group. LP, Vinyl record album
