New Laurin Rinder & Michael LewisSeven Deadly Sins (with bonus tracks) ... CD
AVI/Hot Shot (UK), 1977. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wonderful space disco classic from the years before house music – and a record that's gone on to have a huge influence on generations of dancefloors over the years! The duo of Rinder & Lewis did a number of other projects for the AVI label back in the 70s, but this one may well be their best – a really well-conceived album that layers moogy keyboards over clubby rhythms – all in service of a master concept based around the seven deadly sins – but with an instrumental approach that means the record is never preachy at all. In fact, the grooves are so great that the whole thing really seems to celebrate the sins, not condemn them – another factor that made the record a big one in the underground clubs. Titles include "Pride", "Anger", "Lust", "Sloth", "Covetousness", "Gluttony", and "Envy". CD features bonus tracks – "Lust (12" disco mix)" and "Envy (12" disco mix)". CD

David BenoitHeavier Than Yesterday ... LP
AVI, Late 70s. Very Good+ ... $13.99
Heavier than yesterday – and than most of Benoit's other albums! The set's got a nice space jazz jamming feel at the best moments – worked up by some Rinder & Lewis production into a groove that's got a fair bit of rhythmic drive, and some especially nice electric keys from Benoit. A few tracks feature a bit of vocals, and titles include the jazzy groover "Life Is Like A Samba", plus "I Wish Right Now Would Never End", "96-132", "Getting Outside", and "Heavier Than Yesterday". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover is lightly stained and wrinkled on 3 inches along the opening.)

New El CocoLet's Get It Together ... LP
AVI, 1976. Near Mint- ... $7.99
Very groovy early work by El Coco – a cool mix of electric keyboards and fusiony touches, in a style that made the group a real standout on the dancefloor! At some level, the album almost operates like a jazz set – thanks to the strong keyboards of Michael Lewis and the percussion of Laurin Rinder – but there's also a smoother groove going on, and a definite shot at the clubs that stands out on some of the album's catchier tunes. The keyboards are in a very cool "spaced out" mode, and a few cuts even hit some great 70s exotica moments too. Includes remakes of "Mr Lucky" and "Quiet Village" – which should show some of the influences of the team – plus the tracks "Let's Get It Together", "Fai Le Chat", "Gimme Some", and "Put On Your Jeans".

Wax PoeticsIssue #59 – Aaliyah/Kelela – Summer 2014 ... Magazine
Wax Poetics, 2014. New Copy ... $10.99 11.99
The ladies take the cover this time around – with stunning cover images of both the late Aaliyah and spacey soul singer Kelela – a surprisingly modern pairing for the magazine we initially turned to for old school grooves! Yet Wax Poetics continues to evolve strongly in the 21st Century – as yesterdays' present becomes today's past – evidenced here by a strong lineup of features that also look at Edwin Birdsong, Chromeo, Badbadnotgood, Jimmy Jam, Rinder & Lewis, Terry Reid, Blu, Doug Shorts, and the legendary club scene at the Continental Baths! Full color, with loads of great images that are as striking as the heavy text. Magazine

New El CocoRevolucion ... LP
AVI, 1980. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Latin inflected club grooves by the legendary El Coco! The band was one of the most successful projects of the Rinder/Lewis production team – and although this album's not their best, it's still very much in their classic mode. Most tracks are nice and long, with a disco groove, and titles that include "Carry Me", "I'll Take My Chances", "Something Ya Got Makes Me Hot", and "Love Bizness". LP, Vinyl record album

New Le PamplemousseLe Spank/Monkey See Monkey Do ... 12-inch
AVI, 1977. Used (pic cover)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
"Le Spank" is probably the most successful track ever by this Rinder/Lewis side project – and for good reason, too! The cut's got a cool moogy groove that pops across the top nicely, a bit sparer than the rest of its disco contemporaries, and with a catchiness that's undeniable! This 12" version is over 10 minutes long, too! 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Cover has light aging.)

New Le PamplemousseLe Spank ... LP
AVI, 1977. Used ... Out Of Stock
Seems throwaway from the package – which has a bare ass being spanked on the cover – but the album's actually a pretty slick batch of jazzy disco tracks from the great Rinder & Lewis team! The cornerstone of the album's the group's 10 minute groover "Le Spank" – a smooth midtempo number that has vocals by The Jones Girls, and some great moogy keyboard work! Other tracks include "When She Smiles", "Get Your Boom Boom (Around The Room Room)", and "Cafe Au Lait", which is a spacey instrumental number with a good mix of percussion and keyboards!

New VariousElaste Vol 4 – Meta Disco & Proto House –Originals Ahead Of Their Time – Compiled By Dompteur Mooner ... CD
Compost (Germany), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
One of the coolest entries in this series so far – and that's saying a heck of a lot, given the great music that Elaste has already given us! The set pushes past the boundaries of the dancefloor – to focus on cosmic cuts that might have gotten some play with DJs, but also really unlock a whole new world of listening too – moving from simpler electronic disco into a range of rhythms and sonic experiments that still sound as fresh today as they did when first cut back in the late 70s and early 80s! Some tunes have surprising warm elements, others have some starker touches that really set the tone for later techno – but are much simpler overall – and far more effective, too. Titles include "Gluttony" by Rinder & Lewis, "It's Heavy (Dompteur Mooner edit)" by Barbara Norris, "XXXO" by Equip, "Notice Me (notice the house mix)" by Sandee, "Beat It" by Disco D, "Mumbo Jumbo" by Cybotron, "Shake The Mind" by C Cat Trance, and "Raga Madhuvanti" by Charanjit Singh.

Woody ShawWoody III ... CD
Columbia/Wounded Bird, 1979. Used ... $18.99
A perfect summation of the Woody Shaw genius in the 70s – bold, righteous jazz – delivered with a soaring, joyous message that's impossible to deny! By the time of this release, Shaw had matured to a point where he was easily one of the most important voices on the trumpet in his generation – a 70s player who pulled together strands of the previous generation – from Coltrane to Lee Morgan to Larry Young – all wrapped up in amazing music like this! The set's a major label date, but it's got a righteous power to rival the best indie label sessions from companies like Strata East or Muse – and the lineup features other key spiritual players of Shaw's generation – including Carter Jefferson on tenor, James Spaulding on alto and flute, Rene McLean on alto, Onaje Allen Gumbs on piano, Steve Turre on trumpet, Buster Williams on bass, and Victor Lewis on drums. Titles include the sublime "Woody III" suite, plus "Escape Velocity", "Organ Grinder", and "To Kill A Brick". CD

Woody ShawWoody Plays Woody ... CD
High Note, 1977. Used ... $6.99
Soaring sounds from the late Woody Shaw – a killer collection of his original compositions, all pulled from out-of-print volumes in the Woody Shaw live series! The material here is prime soulful 70s Shaw – with a core group that features Larry Willis on piano, Stafford James on bass, and Victor Lewis on drums – a trio who perfectly set up those rolling, modal, soulfully-expansive grooves that really helped Woody open up – finding keen inspiration on tunes that include "Ginseng People", "Little Red's Fantasy", "Rahsaan's Run", "Stepping Stone", "Opec", and "Organ Grinder – all done in versions that are well over ten minutes long! Other players include Carter Jefferson on soprano sax on one track, Steve Turre on trombone on three others – and Mulgrew Miller on piano on one number. CD
