Led ZeppelinIn Through The Out Door ... LP
Swan Song/Atlantic, 1979. Very Good- ... $11.99
Led Zeppelin's final album of the 70s! The band was conscious as ever of modern studio sounds by the this point – and they find a way to deliver their hard blues-inspired heavy rock with some new wave synth and other late 70s touches. It works pretty well, and with songs as great as "Fool In The Rain" and "All My Love" on the record, they really couldn't go wrong. Other titles include "In The Evening", "South Bound Suarez", "Carouselambra", and "I'm Gonna Crawl". LP, Vinyl record album

New Led ZeppelinPresence (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Swan Song/Atlantic (Japan), 1976. Used Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
Led Zeppelin walk back just a bit on their more stylistically sprawling tendencies for this one – and it's a fine set of hard-grooving rock from these uber-legends! We're not sure if they got some of the more ambitious ideas out of their system with Physical Graffiti, or if they just simply wanted to get out there and kick ass this time, but that's indeed what they do. It's still got some longer songs and complicated changes – this is Led Zeppelin, after all – and the lack of over-played classic rock radio fodder actually makes this one a better listen nowadays than the more iconic albums. Includes "Achilles Last Stand", "For Your Life", "Nobody's Fault But Mine", "Candy Store Rock", "Hots On For Nowhere" and "Tea For One". CD
(SHM-CD pressing! Includes obi.)

Jimmy PageDeath Wish II ... LP
Swan Song/Atlantic, 1982. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
Bronson's back on the streets in this sequel to Death Wish – but fortunately, he's got Jimmy Page there to back him up! Page sings on the lead track, "Who's To Blame" – and the rest of them are mostly instrumentals, done with a pretty hard-ripping guitar sound that's actually pretty nice! Think of the album as a Led Zep instrumental set, with a slight bit of soundtrack funk – and you've almost got the whole picture. Titles include "Jam Sandwich", "City Sirens", "The Chase", "Big Band, Sax, & Violence", "Shadow In The City", and "Hotel Rats & Photostats". LP, Vinyl record album

New Led ZeppelinSong Remains The Same ... LP
Swan Song/Atlantic, 1976. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Arguably one of the greatest double-live albums of the classic rock generation – filled with extra long takes of Led Zep classics, most of which diverge very strongly from their studio versions! The real highlight here is the set's classic "Moby Dick", which features one of the greatest drum solos ever set to wax – but other tunes include "Rain Song", "Whole Lotta Love", "Stairway To Heaven", "No Quarter", and "Dazed & Confused". LP, Vinyl record album

Big BoysNo Matter How Long The Line At The Cafeteria, There's Always a Seat (limited edition) ... Cassette
Modern Classics/Burger, 1985. New Copy ... $11.99 12.98
The last album by Big Boys – and it's a really good one! Unlike a lot of their 80s underground rock peers, who outstayed their welcomes and put out some pretty lousy records before fizzing out, The Big Boys' swan song actually improves on some clumsier material in the preceding couple of years. Their distinctive way of bringing funky horns into aggressive 80s punk paved the way for a whole heap of bands to come – for better AND for worse, to be honest – but they really found away to make it a bit more cohesive by the end. The even bring a little bit of old school hip hop turntable scratches into this one, which was the next (and last) logical step for the band. Like their earlier records, it's still profoundly punk rock at the core, just far more colorful than most from the same period. Includes "No", "Narrow View", "I Do Care", "Listen", "What's The Word?", "Common Beat", "No Love", "Which Way To Go", " Cassette
(Cassette co-released with Burger Records and limited to 500 hand-numbered copies in our exclusive tip-on tape box.)

John ColtraneComplete Sun Ship Sessions (3LP set) ... LP
Mosaic, 1965. New Copy 3 LPs ... $89.99 90.00
A hugely expanded version of this legendary album – one that features loads of unreleased tracks that show the whole thing coming together in the studio! The set's filled with soaring work from the legendary John Coltrane Quartet – a session that was incredibly far-reaching for the time, and which originally was unissued until after the time of Coltrane's death! The record's got the group really pushing forward strongly – hitting a Love Supreme mode, but also showing even some of the sharper edges that John would explore with the group after this one – a beautiful swan song to the lineup of McCoy Tyner on piano, Jimmy Garrison on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums. Things soar with a hell of a lot of spirituality, yet never get too overindulgent to lose their groove – and titles include "Amen", "Dearly Beloved", "Ascent", "Attaining", and "Sun Ship". 3LP set features complete takes of some tracks that were cut off on the original LP release, plus other versions that show a strong development of the music! LP, Vinyl record album

New Miles DavisSomeday My Prince Will Come (180 gram vinyl – mono edition) ... LP
Columbia, 1961. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
The tenor sax here makes the album a standout – as John Coltrane still works with Miles Davis on 2 tracks for the record, but Blue Note stalwart Hank Mobley joins in on the rest! The approach is similar to that of the classic Coltrane/Davis years – and in a way, the record's kind of a swan song to that period – one of the last studio session that Miles would cut in such an unabashedly sweet and lyrical way. And while Mobley's always better known for his harder-blown notes at Blue Note, he sounds totally great here next to Davis – really keeping up the gentle spirit and spaciousness of the record, and working with a gentleness that surpasses even his work on the legendary Soul Station album. Rhythm is by the trio of Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers, and Jimmy Cobb – and titles include Miles' classic version of "Someday My Prince Will Come", plus "Old Folks", "Teo", "Drad-Dog", and "Pfrancing".

Django ReinhardtGreat Artistry Of Django Reinhardt/Django's Guitar ... CD
Five Four (UK), 1930s/1940s/1950s. Used ... $8.99
2 excellent Django Reinhardt albums – including his 1953 swan song Great Artistry Of Django Reinhardt LP – plus his great compilation of early work titled Django's Guitar – back to back on a single CD! Great Artistry. . .was famously recorded just a couple of months before Django's death, and it's a fascinating album in that it finds him in more of a stoic, yet beautiful bop setting. It's a departure from the frenetic gypsy jazz that made him famous, but it's an excellent album that is still instantly identifiable as the work of Reinhardt. We'll leave the question to the experts of whether the sort of elegiac tone is a result of his impending departure from our world, but, it's a wonderful listen! There's really no telling how much more varied his work might have become if he lived later into the decade. Tracks include "Night And Day", "Blues For Ike", "Nuages", "Brazil", "September Song", "Manoir De Mes Reves" and more. Django's Guitar is a nice collection of early recordings by the guitar legend – recorded in the late 30s and early 40s, in unique small settings. Django's accompanied by either bass, piano, another guitar or some small grouping of them for 9 numbers in all, including "You Rascal You", "Improvisation No 3", "Blues Clair", "Tea For Two", "Bouncin' Around", 'Sweet Georgia Brown", "Naguine", 'I'll See You In My Dreams", and 'Echoes Of Spain".

VariousSweet Dreams – Where Country Meets Soul Vol 2 – 23 Exceptional Examples Of How Blurred The Line That Separates Country & Soul Music Can Be ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99
Great sounds from a very special place – that magical meeting point where country meets soul – a spot that was crossed surprisingly often in the southern soul scene of the 60s and 70s! The set's a great follow-up to the excellent first volume – and really does a wonderful job of showing the way that a country ethos could work equally well in soul music – with results that will definitely have you re-thinking your ideas of cultural separation in the south. Much of the work is from that great late 60s/early 70s point when the country soul genre was really maturing – moving past the earlier moments of Ray Charles or Brook Benton, and using the style to express a new level of lyrical sophistication – especially in songs of love lost. Titles include "Sweet Music Man" by Millie Jackson, "Don't You Ever Get Tired" by Bettye Swann, "I Hate You" by Bobby Bland, "Statue Of A Fool" by David Ruffin, "Tennessee Waltz" by Otis Redding, "Bad News" by Clarence Carter, "Sunday Morning Coming Down" by Hank Ballard, "But You Know I Love You" by Sweet Inspirations, "Please Help Me I'm Falling" by William Bell, "Sometimes" by Facts Of Life, "I'll Release You" by Ted Taylor, and "All I Have To Offer" by Eddie James.

New VariousBehind Closed Doors – Where Country Meets Soul ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A stellar collection of country soul by many of the greatest voices of any strain of soul music – Solomon Burke, Esther Phillips, Al Green, Bettye Swann, Percy Sledge, Little Milton, Candi Stanton and many more! A healthy portion of the material comes from the late 60s and early 70s – recordings that bring a depth of genuine soul to songs written or popularized by artists more often associated with the country charts. That said, it's soul music all the way – showing both the dexterity of these great soul singers and the adaptability of the such great songs. Includes "Detroit City" by Arthur Alexander, "He'll Have To Go" by Solomon Burke, "Take Time To Know Her" by Percy Sledge, "I Saw Me" by Esther Phillips, "Hangin' On" by Ann Peebles, "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" by Al Green, "Behind Closed Doors" by Little Milton, "Set Me Free" by Clarence Carter, "Yours, Love" by Joe Simon, "She Even Woke Me Up To Say Goodbye" by Brook Benton and more.
