Diga Rhythm BandDiga ... CD
Round/Shout Factory, 1976. Used ... $2.99
One of Mickey Hart's first forays into the world music genre – and way way better than his later Planet Drum recordings! The Grateful Dead's drummer plays with, and produces, an all-percussion ensemble that includes tablas, marimbas, talking drums, timbales, and congas. All the melody parts are handled by marimba, vibes and talking drums, but there does seem to be some overdubbed guitar on a couple tracks – and although the rhythms are firmly rock-based and the group is quite large, there's a lot of spacious moments and atmosphere in the polyrhythmic grooves – more than enough so to give the record strong appeal to listeners with more globally-tuned ears. 5 tracks in all, most fairly long – "Sweet Sixteen", "Magnificent Sevens", "Razooli", "Tal Mala", and "Happiness Is Drumming".

New Charles MingusModern Jazz Symposium Of Music & Poetry (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Bethlehem/Shout Factory, 1957. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic album – one of our favorite-ever records from Charles Mingus! The album was recorded in the same breath as his legendary works Tijuana Moods, The Clown, and Pithecanthropus Erectus – and it features the same sort of fire and emotion that made those classics so great. The group alone is amazing – with Horace Parlan on piano, Shafi Hadi on alto and tenor, Jimmy Knepper on trombone, and the amazing Clarence (aka Gene) Shaw on trumpet – all getting plenty of room to open up on the album's longer tracks! The work bristles with a sense of imagination and dark energy that Mingus hardly had in his music in later years – and each new tune brings a fresh sense of vision that never fails to astound us! In keeping with the "poetry" title, the album begins with an incredible 12 minute track "Scenes in the City" – which features a long spoken bit written by Langston Hughes about one man's love of jazz and the way that it affects his life in the city – all supported with excellent instrumentation from the group. Other titles are instrumental, and include "Nouroog", "New York Sketchbook", "Slippers", and "Duke's Choice". CD also features 3 bonus tracks – "Woody N You", "Billie's Bounce", and an alternate take of "Slippers". CD

New Herb Alpert with Lani HallSteppin' Out ... CD
Shout Factory, 2013. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A great groove from Herb Alpert – and a set that almost returns him back to his best fusion styles of the 70s! Lani Hall's billed on the title of this one, but only sings on a handful of tracks – leaving most of the set to focus on Herb's sweet trumpet lines, out front of backings that often have a core jazzy style with sweet electric touches! If you dig Herb from his "Rise" years, you'll find plenty to love here – on titles that include "Jacky's Place", "Our Song", "Green Lemonade", "Cote D'Azur", "It's All In The Game", "And The Angels Sing", "Migration", and "Oblivion".

New ClashRise & Fall Of The Clash – The Inside Story Of The Only Band That Mattered (DVD) ... DVD
Shout Factory, 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A nice little film that's got a pretty balanced focus on both the rise and decline of the Clash – and really gets at those unique qualities that made the group so special during their best years! The film features new interviews with Mick Jones, Terry Chimes, Vince White, Nick Sheppard, and many others – plus archival interviews with Joe Strummer, Paul Simonon, and Topper Headon – mixed with rare performance and archival footage as well! The film is approximately 90 minutes in length, and features English, French, and German subtitles. DVD
(There is no indication, but we are assuming this is an NTSC format, Region 1 DVD.)

New English BeatI Just Can't Stop It (with bonus track) ... CD
IRS/Shout Factory, 1980. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The first album from The English Beat – and not only is it one of the most essential of the English ska revival era of the late 70s and early 80s – it's one the most enduring records of 1980 in any genre! The English Beat, like the best of their peers, used ska and rocksteady inspiration to fuel their own contemporary UK sound – and it sounds great to this day! The rhythms are tighter and punchier here than on later records, with some pop, mod and soul lacing their songwriting and vocal. A landmark! Includes "Mirror In The Bathroom", "Hands Off. . .She's Mine", "Twist & Crawl", "Big Shot", "Best Friend", "Jackpot" and more. This 2012 CD version also includes "Ranking Full Stop" – which wasn't on the original UK release. CD

New English BeatSpecial Beat Service (with bonus tracks) ... CD
IRS/Shout Factory, 1982. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The third album from The English Beat and another step further away from their rougher roots – which may not have sat well with strident fans of their earlier, punchier ska revival sounds – but it stands up today as one of the most timeless leftfield pop albums of the early 80s! The Beat never discarded their calypso, ska, rocksteady inspirations, they simply expanded upon them – and there's plenty of hooky, catchy songcraft on Special Beat Service – as well as the uncommonly soulful pop of songs like "Save It For Later"! Other tracks include "I Confess", "Jeanette", "Sorry", "Sole Salvation", "She's Going", "End OF The Party", "Ackee 1 2 3" and more. This 2012 CD version has 4 bonus tracks: "What's Your Best Thing", "March Of The Swivel Heads", "Cool Entertainer" and "A Go Talk (Tappy Luppy Dub)". CD

New Gladys Knight & The PipsClaudine/Pipe Dreams ... CD
Buddah/Shout Factory, 1974/1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great 2-in-1 from Gladys Knight & The Pips – the Claudine and Pipe Dreams soundtracks back to back on a single CD! Claudine is a wonderful mid 70s set from Gladys Knight & The Pips – a soundtrack date written and produced by Curtis Mayfield, who really helps bring a lot of depth to their music! Curtis really helps Knight and the group get out of some of their hit cliches of the 70s, and find some hipper space for the setting of the film – a mixture of some of the mellower tracks that Gladys' always sparkles on, mixed with some badder-stepping numbers that further deepen the groove – and which has kept the album alive over the years, thanks to some key hip hop samples. Tracks include the sublime "The Makings Of You", plus "Mr Welfare Man", "To Be Invisible", "Claudine Theme", "On and On", and "Hold On". After hitting big as a singer on the soundtrack for Claudine, Gladys Knight finally got her chance in front of the camera for Pipe Dreams – a record that featured her both as the star on film and on the soundtrack! The styles here are a bit more wider-ranging than the usual 70s soundtrack of this type – a bit of ballad soul, mellow numbers, and more – arranged by Dominic Frontiere and Michael Masser in styles that are a bit like some of Knight's own albums of the time. We like especially the jazzy vocalesey number "Pot Of Jazz", a nice number that deserves further discovery on a compilation – and other cuts include "Find A Way", "Follow My Dreams", "So Sad The Song", and "Alaskan Pipeline".

A massive collection of classic Richard Pryor – in a box set that spans the best years of his career, and pulls together some of his greatest material ever – plus rare and unreleased bits!

James BrownIt's A Mother (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
King/Culture Factory, 1969. New Copy ... $16.99 18.99
A definite mother from James Brown – the kind of all-funky album that few of his contemporaries could ever hope to match! If you've ever doubted the sheer raw power of James at the end of the 60s, the first few notes of this one will definitely make you a convert – and the stretched-out grooves as the album rolls on will pull you even further into the fold. Most tracks roll on with that improvised studio jamming style that James was hitting at the time – a pre-JBs mode that's not as long as later years, but which still makes you feel that there probably was plenty more recorded on the dates that didn't make it into the two-part versions of the tracks! And although James is singing on most numbers, the real focus is more on the band – hitting hard, vamping sharp, and grooving massively under shouted calls and directions from Brown. Titles include two great instrumentals – "Popcorn With a Feeling" and "Top of the Stack" – plus "Little Groove Maker Me (parts 1 & 2)", "Mother Popcorn (parts 1 & 2)", "Mashed Potato Popcorn (parts 1 & 2)", "Any Day Now", "You're Still Out Of Sight", and "I'm Shook" – as well as the great mellower number "If I Ruled The World" – redone here as an African-American anthem of pride and power!
