Led ZeppelinIn Through The Out Door ... LP
Swan Song/Atlantic, 1979. Near Mint- ... $24.99
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 ZeppelinSong Remains The Same ... LP
Swan Song/Atlantic, 1976. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $16.99
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".

New Led ZeppelinCoda ... LP
Swan Song, 1982. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
The end of the stairway for Led Zeppelin! A couple of bluesy covers, a strong folk-styled original – and some tried-and-true Zeppelin stormers – on a fairly succinct final album. Early on are a couple of comparatively meditative numbers, and album builds to an exciting, hard-rocking end. Includes "We're Gonna Groove", "Poor Tom", "I Can't Quit You Baby", the Bonham showpiece "Bonzo's Montreaux", "Wearing And Tearing" and more. 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!

Miles DavisSomeday My Prince Will Come (180 gram vinyl – mono edition) ... LP
Columbia, 1961. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
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".

New Django ReinhardtGreat Artistry Of Django Reinhardt/Django's Guitar ... CD
Five Four (UK), 1930s/1940s/1950s. Used ... Out Of Stock
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".

New VariousCold Cold Heart – Where Country Meets Soul Vol 3 ... CD
Kent (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... $14.99
Southern soul galore – a wonderful range of tracks that are done in that best deep soul mode that borrowed heavily from country music – but also really transformed things to fit their own righteous needs! Make no mistake, the collection is all soul music all the way through – but the songs also echo some of the more heartbreaking themes and local needs you'd find in country music – and also use some isolated elements in the instrumentation and production too! The best way to think of the package is as a collection of southern soul, but one that shows a surprising lack of color barrier when it comes to musical styles – and as always with Ace/Kent, the notes and overall conception of the whole thing is really wonderful. 24 tracks in all – including "Easy Loving" by Bo Kirkland & Ruth Davis, "Big Blue Diamonds" by Little Johnny Taylor, "I Hang My Head & Cry" by Arthur Alexander, "True Love Travels On A Gravel Road" by Percy Sledge, "Touch Your Woman" by Margie Joseph, "Who Will The Next Fool Be" by Bobby Bland, "Stand By Your Man" by The Mirettes, "Till I Get It Right" by Bettye Swann, "Another Man's Woman Another Woman's Man" by Laura Lee, and "Jambalaya" by Ralph Soul Jackson.

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 ... $9.99
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 DweleGreater Than One ... CD
E One, 2012. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The best in years from Dwele – who honestly has yet to really make any kind of a creative misstep – and Greater Than One is one of his greatest records to date! Detroit singer and producer Dwele has long balanced a love for classic soul of the Donny Hathaway school with contemporary, though wisely trend-skirting production – and he does that once again here. There's a more focused feel, and really strong, insistent songs this time out, too. Of course Dwele's voice is the greatest selling point, and it's layered beautifully throughout! Includes "Greater Than One Less Than Three", "Going Leaving", "Takes22Tango", "What You Gotta Do" with Raheem DeVaughn, "What Profit", "Obey", "Must Be" feat J Tait, L'Renee & Black Milk, "Swank" and "Patrick Ronald" feat Monica Blaire, "Frankly My Dear (I'm Bennett I Ain't Innit)" and more.

New VariousCameo Parkway Story 1957 to 1967 – Original Master Recordings (4CD box set) ... CD
Abkco, Late 50s/1960s. Used 4CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An incredible treasure trove of music – 4CDs worth of material from the legendary Philly Cameo and Parkway labels, most of which has never been officially reissued before! The package is way way more than just a simple "best of" that features the label's hits – as the set features a total of 115 songs in all, and features an incredible blend of rock, soul, doo wop, instrumental, and novelty tracks! The notes offer track-by-track details on each number – listing recording dates, single numbers, and more – and the booklet also lists studio musicians for the sessions, and other important details about the label. And heck, the set's worth it alone for its version of "Wild Thing" by Senator Bobby – one of our favorite singles of all time – but it also includes rare work by Frankie Beverly & The Butlers, The Tymes, The Ivy League, The Delfonics, Mike Pedicin Quartet, The Cameos, The Orlons, Bobby Rydell, The Swans, The Dreamers, Lonnie Youngblood, Eddie Holman, Chris Bartley, Bobby Marchan, Terry Night, Ohio Express, The Five Stairsteps, and even Bob Seger!

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.
