New VariousChange The Beat – The Celluloid Records Story 1979 to 1987 ... CD
Celluloid/Strut (UK), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy 2 CDs .... Out Of Stock
Hip hop, street soul, and lots lots more – a really revolutionary selection of music from the legendary Celluloid Records – a label that was virtually a genre unto itself! Celluloid was a key force tying together the New York downtown scene at the start of the 80s, and the postcolonial music world of Paris – and as a result, they always operated with a culture-crossing style that few other companies of the time managed to hit – merging together sounds in really unlikely ways, and often coming up with fresh new styles in the process! The label's known for crate-diggers for its hip hop releases – and to world music fans for its electric Africa work – but they also were on the forefront of New York No Wave, avant jazz, and post-punk – and somehow found a way to integrate both young new talents, and older experimentalists who still had plenty to offer. This package finally does Celluloid justice – and goes way past the few simplistic comps of the label's work over the years – training the skilled Strut ear to the whole thing, and also serving up the full story of the label in the process. Titles include "I'm The One" by Material, "Day Tripper" by Shockabilly, "Tele Apres La Meteo" by Fredinand, "Disco Rough (long version)" by Mathematiques Modernes, "Electrique Sylvie (full length version)" by Modern Guy, "Mean Machine Chant/Mean Machine" by Last Poets, "Abele Dance ('85 rmx)" by Manu Dibango, "Change The Beat (French & English)" by Fab 5 Freddy, "The Escapades Of Futura 2000" by Futura 2000 with The Clash, and "Downing Street Rock" by Winston Edwards & Blackbeard. 26 tracks in all!

Nino FerrerNino Kids ... CD
Universal (France), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy .... $14.99
Not the kiddie songs you might expect from the title and cover, and instead a really cool collection of hip French grooves from singer Nino Ferrer! There's definitely a youthful touch on some numbers, but most of the tunes have a funky or groovy feel – of the sort that really showcases the beat groove, jazz-heavy style that made Nino the French equivalent of Brit singers like Georgie Fame! The backings here are often nicely playful, and the 60s numbers are especially great – of the sort that make Ferrer's music the sort that could easily be re-discovered by a contemporary generation – the kind of cool and groovy 60s tunes that still sound wonderful after all these years. Titles include "Miraza", "Oh He Hein Bon", "Le Telefon", "Madame Robert", "Alexandre", "Mamadou Meme", "Il Pleut Bergere", "Chanson Pour Petit Bout", "Les Hommes A Tout Faire", and "Les Cornichons".

Ella FitzgeraldBest Of The BBC Vaults (CD/DVD) ... CD
Verve, 1965/1974/1977. New Copy CD & DVD .... $23.99 24.98
A lost chapter of genius from the legendary Ella Fitzgerald – music that goes beyond her Verve, Reprise, and Pablo albums of the 60s and 70s – and which is pulled from a host of rare performances recorded by the BBC! The package features both video and audio presentation of the music – although the DVD has a lot more tracks than the CD, due to its greater size – which makes for a heck of a lot of work bundled into one sweet set! Recordings are pulled from a 1965 appearance on Show Of The Week, and a special Ella Fitzgerald Sings set from the same year – as well as a televised 1977 performance of Jazz At Montreux, and a 1974 Omnibus presentation of Ella Fitzgerald at Ronnie Scotts. DVD features 34 tracks, CD features 17 – and titles include "The Girl From Ipanema", "That Old Black Magic", "Gloomy Sunday", "Don't Rain On My Parade", "Cheek To Cheek", "The Lady Is A Tramp", "Manhatta", "Mack The Knife", and "Good Morning Heartache".

Max Ionata Quartet with Fabrizio BossoInspiration ... CD
Albore Jazz (Japan), 2009. New Copy .... $19.99
An already-great quartet – augmented by some wicked trumpet work by Fabrizio Bosso! The group perfectly sums up everything that's great about the contemporary Italian jazz scene – a sound that has its roots in classic hardbop of the 50s and 60s, but a youthful energy that instantly communicates all the joy the players get from their music – a renewed sense of strength and purpose that we don't always hear in American jazz dates of this nature! The recording is beautiful – as perfectly put together as some of the Deja Vu sessions from Italy in recent years – and the lineup features the tenor of Max Ionata in the lead, the guest trumpet of Fabrizio Bosso, piano from Luca Mannutza, bass from Nicola Muresu, and drums from Nicola Angelucci – on some great tunes that are often heavy in modal moments! Gege Telesforo guests on vocals on "Hey Rookie" – and other titles include "Satosong", "Two Friends", "Mi Diverto", "Love For Sale", "Fragile", "The End Of A Love Affair", and "Ginza Line". CD

Hildegard KnefKnef ... CD
Telefunken/Warner (Germany), 1970. Used .... $12.99
Hildegard Knef isn't always the hippest singer in the world, but this album is plenty darn groovy – a real masterpiece of baroque pop that really stands out from her other recordings! The session was done in close collaboration with arranger Hans Hammerschmid – with all original lyrics by Hildegard and original music by Hans – done in a mode that easily rivals the best from Jimmy Webb or Burt Bacharach on the US scene at the end of the 60s! Larger orchestrations play easily with lighter instrumental touches – sometimes sweeping, sometimes slightly funky – creating a sense of counterpoint that's filled by Knef's snappily punctuated vocals. Lyrics are all in German, but the whole thing's so groovily compelling that you hardly notice the language difference – and titles include "Im 80 Stockwerk", "Eisblumen", "Schwertfisch", "Ich Brauch Tapetenwechsel", "Elvira O", "Mein Zeitbegriff", "Der Tag Holt Luft", and "Liebe Auf Den Hundersten Blick".

Bruno NicolaiGeminus ... CD
Pan (Italy), 1969. New Copy .... $16.99
Bruno Nicolai is at the top of his game here – really working magic for the soundtrack to this extended late 60s mini-series for Italian television! The music sums up all the best Nicolai modes of the time – some of those Morricone-like moments of mellow groove, mixed with starker striking sounds, balanced by some especially catchy jazz elements that really make the whole thing sparkle – in ways that are almost a more serious presentation of ideas that Bruno brought to sexier comedies! Vibes, organ, and guitar all figure in nicely at certain points – and the soundtrack's awash in very cool tunes – including a few lyrical numbers near the end. Titles include "Tema Barocco", "Teorema", "Larve", "Le Voice", "Sogno", "Catacombe", "Notti Romane", and "Avventure Notturne". CD

Buck OwensBuck 'Em – The Music Of Buck Owens 1955 to 1967 ... CD
Capitol/Omnivore, Late 50s/1960s. New Copy 2 CDs .... $24.99 26.98
A fantastic Buck Owens retrospective from the always affectionate, comprehensive and respectful Omnivore label – an appropriately named company if there ever was one – because we hungrily eat up just about everything they put out! Buck Owens two-fronted legacy as a Bakersfield honky tonk pioneer and folksy television personality have been safe and sound for years, but this is the first Buck Owens collection we've seen to so perfectly balance the uber-classic singles and album tracks with comparable rarities – and most of it appears in tight, punchy mono versions. Includes some great early and live versions of some of this best tunes, and the whole thing is great, for newcomers and lifelong fans alike! 50 tracks on 2CDs: "Down On The Corner Of Love", "Hot Dog", "Sweet Thing", "Fooliin' Around", "Fool Me Again", "My Heart Skips A Beat (Early Version)", "Act Naturally (Live In Bakersfield)", "Close Up The Honky Tonks", "Truck Drivin' Man", "Hello Trouble", "I Don't Care (Just As Long As You Love Me)", "Cryin' Time". "Before You Go", "Together Again", "Heartbreak Mountain", "The Girl On Sugar Pie Lane" and many more – reaching back to the late 50s, but mostly from Buck's 60s peak with producer Ken Nelson. CD

Gil Scott-HeronRevolution Will Not Be Televised ... CD
RCA/Bluebird, Early 70s. Used .... $5.99
An 80s collection, but one that's filled with gems from Gil Scott-Heron's legendary early years at Flying Dutchman – a time when he was recording some of his most impressively righteous material ever! The music's a hip mix of protest poetry and sweet jazzy numbers – played with great keyboard accompaniment from frequent partner Brian Jackson on nearly every track – plus help from Hubert Laws on flute and sax, and Bernard Purdie on drums. CD features 17 tracks in all – much more than the album – and titles include "Pieces of a Man", "Lady Day & John Coltrane", "Whitey on the Moon", "The Needle's Eye", "Home is Where the Hatred Is", "Did You Hear What They Said?", "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised", "No Knock", "Sex Education Ghetto Style", "A Sign Of The Ages", "The Prisoner", and "When You Are Who You Think You Are".

Labi SiffreSinger & The Song (with bonus tracks) ... CD
EMI (UK), New Copy .... $11.99
An incredible record from Labi Siffre – spare, simple, and totally beautiful – in a space beyond category! The album is the sort that should have been a real standout in the 70s – early work by one of the freshest songwriters to hit the British scene, sung in a style that's a bit jazzy, a bit soulful – with playful inflections that never get in the way of the beautiful lyrics at all. Labi's got a unique blend of modes here that ranks with a rare few in music – Terry Callier, Joni Mitchell, and a few other beyond-category artists from the same generation. The whole thing's extremely beautiful – and Labi's voice and guitar are backed by some subtle arrangements that shade in the bottom with electric keys, a bit of bass, spare strings – and sometimes nothing at all! Titles include "Thank You Lucky Star", "Bless The Telephone", "There's Nothing In The World Like Love", "You're Lovely", "A Number Of Words", "Who Do You See", "Not So Long Ago", "Relax", and "Interlude". CD also features 6 bonus tracks that include "Oh What A Day", "Seasons Come Seasons Go", "Get To The Country", and "Fallin For You". CD

Stark RealityNow ... CD
Stones Throw, 1969. Used .... $8.99
One of the most tripped-out albums of funk you'll ever buy – a rare treasure with a very unusual history! The Stark Reality were a cool little combo formed to work on public television in Boston in the late 60s – and the combo featured some heavy guitars, fuzzed-up vibes, and some monster percussion laid out in tight bass and drum rhythms that were years ahead of their time! The group recorded one rare album – ostensibly a children's record, but based around old compositions by Hoagy Carmichael, completely pulled apart, sliced up, overly harmonized, and spat out into wild funky tunes that bear no resemblance to their originals! The original album – Stark Reality Discovers Hoagy Carmichael's Music Shop – has been a holy grail for collectors for years (we once sold a copy for hundreds of dollars!), and the music has only ever really been heard by a few dedicated beatheads that have tracked down rare copies. Now, though, the geniuses at Stones Throw have put out the whole LP, plus bonus material, in one fantastic package that is soon to make the Stark Reality legends amongst funky fans the world over! Mad vibes meet fuzzy guitars meet killer funky beats – and the whole thing's a masterpiece that will never be duplicated again! Tracks include "Too Much Tenderness", "Sunday's Song", "Roller Coaster Ride", "Say Brother", "Rocket Ship", "All You Need To Make Music", "Junkman's Song", and "Thirty Days Hath September". CD

VRevelation Is Now Televised ... CD
BBE (UK), 2005. Used .... $7.99
An instant classic – and one of the best new soul albums of the 21st Century so far – the debut of Valvin Roane II, aka V – a fresh talent from the wide side of the Philly scene! V's working here with production from Jazzy Jeff, Pete Smoovah, and Pete Kuzma, Jill Scott's bandleader – and the set has an amazing quality that more than lives up to it's classic-styled cover and title! V sings with a voice that would be great enough on its own – a church-schooled mode that's deeply soulful, and which hearkens back to 70s Marvin Gaye or Stevie Wonder – but with the added production from Jeff and the Petes, he really strides forward with a bold new sound – one that's spacey one minute, crispy the next – often laidback, yet never lazy in its approach to the music. And while it would be easy enough to label this one as "classic soul" and leave it at that, V's also got a vibe that's richly his own – one that really fits the unpretentious photo on the cover, and which is a refreshing change from overly-postured male soul (and that includes even the stuff that's pretending its not!) Titles include "Born Again", which features Jill Scott – plus "Confess", "Best Friend", "Picture This", "Still", "Who Would I Be", "Would U Be Mine", "Anotha Phase", "Melody", and "Hey Pretty Baby".

VariousBeginners Guide To Brazil (3CD set) ... CD
Nascente (UK), 1960s/1970s/1980s/1990s/2000s. New Copy 3CD .... $14.99
A well-titled name for this sweet little package – a 3CD set that brings together a heck of a lot of Brazilian musical styles – all with a range that really lives up to its promise! The set is different from the older Beginners Guide To Brazil – and offers up a more contemporary mix, pulled from the rich archive of EMI in Brazil – with bits of samba, bossa, forro, MPB, and even some of the more compelling electronic and modern sounds coming from Brazil of late. As with other volumes, you get a heck of a lot of music for your money – a whopping 53 tracks that include "O Fole Roncou" by Luiz Gonzaga, "Bailao Gaucho" by Tonico E Tinoco, "Berimbau" by Pery Ribeiro & Leny Andrade, "Reis E Rainhas Do Maracatu" by Milton Nascimento, "Nascente" by Beto Guedes, "Tudo Que Voce Podia Ser" by Lo Borges, "Vou Com Gas" by Tim Maia, "Pais Tropical" by Wilson Das Neves, "Piston De Gafeira" by Moreira Da Silva, "Me Me Quitte Pas" by Maysa, "Teleco Teco No 2" by Elza Soares, "No Morro Da Casa Verde" by Adoniran Barbosa, "Eu Bebo Sim" by Golden Boys, "Onde Anda O Meu Amor" by Bossa Tres, and "Conto De Areia" by Clara Nunes.

VariousInner City Beat – Detective Themes, Spy Music & Imaginary Thrillers 1967 to 1975 ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy CD & Book .... $22.99
A killer collection of sound library funk from the UK – a scene that served up some of the rarest grooves of the 70s! The music is every bit as funky as American work from the early 70s – like records from CTI, or blacksploitation soundtracks – but most of it was never issued on vinyl at the time, as it was circulated only for use in film and television – recorded by an elite group of players for very limited use. The rarity is only part of the appeal, though – as the overall vibe is great – and the record has the same instantly appealing feel as other jazz, funk, and soul collections from the always-great Soul Jazz label. This time around, they do a great job of turning their ear towards the rich sound libraries of companies like KPM, DeWolfe, and Conroy – and come up with a double-length batch of funky instrumentals that includes "The Hell Raisers" and "Danger Musicians At Work" by Syd Dale, "Fuel Injection" and "Crossflow" by Ernest Copley, "Superformance" and "Men Of Action" by David Lindup, "Cross Talk" and "Funky Chimes" by Francis Coppieters, "Theme From New Scotland Yard" by Norrie Paramour, "Come One Come All" by Brass Incorporated, "Sparks" by Peter Reno & Barry Stoller, "Gotta Getaway" by Dave Richmond, "Transit" by Clive Hicks, "The Ratcatchers" by Tilsley Orchestral, "Grand Prix" by Johnny Pearson, and "Conveyer Belt" and "Workshop" by Johnny Hawksworth.

VariousLa Guepe Vol 3 – Bananaticoco: European Airlines To Rio ... CD
Dare Dare/Pulp Flavor (France), 1999. New Copy .... $11.99
Killer jazzy Brazilian grooves! It's common knowledge that Brazilian music has always found a wider audience in Europe than America (at least for most of the past 30 years) – and that a large number of European jazz and groove artists have created their own versions of the music, coming up with some killer hybrids of funk, fusion, and Brazilian rhythms. This excellent set brings together a dozen great cuts in that style – mostly from French, Italian, and German sources recorded during the 70s. The cuts are all super-rare (natch), and the selection of material is put together in a great way that keeps the whole thing very lively. Titles include "Ye Me Le" by Brazil Selection, "Kinky Peanuts" by Sesso Matto, "Bamba" by Dimenzio, "Vai Vai" by Jean Pierre Sabar, "Batucada Erotica" by Michel Colombier, "Senhor Piloto" by Tega & Ricardo, and "Casa Di Moda" by G & Moi Angeus. Also features one authentic Brazilian groover, the great cut "Agibore" by MPB4 – a killer funky number issued only on a 1973 promo LP by the Brazilian Ministry of Telecommunications for a European meeting!

VariousTrue Soul Vol 1 – Deep Sounds From The Left Of Stax (CD & DVD) ... CD
Now Again, 1960s/1970s. New Copy CD + DVD .... $14.99 19.98
The first volume in Now Again's incredible compilation series for the True Soul label – assembled with the personal participation of the label's owner, Lee Anthony – rare, deep and absolute True Soul and funk from the 60s & 70s catalog of the revered Arkansas indie! It's rare regional funk & soul made under the mightily imposing shadows of southern labels like Stax and Hi Records – but the tunes here are straight up incredible and as ripe for discovery as any music of the era. The label was called True Soul and they don't take that moniker lightly – but it's adventurously soulful, with strains of psychedelic soul and funk, with a bit of southern swagger. Includes "Slipping Around (45 Version)", "Funky Music", "Sister Funk (Original, Full Version)" and "Follow The Rainbow (Alternate Mix)" by Thomas East, a great instrumental cover of "Come Together" by Albert Smith, "Doing My Own Thing" by John Craig, "Funky Football", "Psychedelic Hot Pants (Full Version)" and more by York Wilbern's Psychedelic Six, "Hard Times" by Classic Funk, "I Gotta Move With The Groove" by The Right Track", "The Real Thing" by The Conspiracy and "(It's A) "Rat Race by The Leaders. 14 tracks in all on the CD– including a previously unreleased York Wilborn's Psychedelic Six track. It also comes with a DVD – featuring live footage from a 1973 True Soul Revue television program, and the set is packaged beautifully! The CD & DVD are bound in what's essentially a small hardcover book – a thick, lavishly illustrated one – full of vintage performance, studio and promo photos, discography, deeply felt notes by Eothen Alapatt, plus interviews conducted by Egon. We heard years ago that Now Again was cooking this series up. . .and it was absolutely worth the wait. CD

New Jorge BenBig Ben ... CD
1965. New Copy .... Around June 11, 2014
Brilliant early work from Jorge Ben – a set that shouldn't be confused with the US album of the same name, and which is one of Jorge's first few gems of the 60s! The album's got Ben stepping out with a slightly jazzier feel than on his debut – a style that's still heavily steeped in the guitar-driven samba that first won him fame, but which also features a fair bit of bossa-influenced instrumentation too – bits of piano, flute, and horns that echo with some darker colors and tones that really add a lot to the tunes! The backings are never too full – nor too full of themselves – but this added level of sophistication really helps push Jorge into a range of fresh new sounds – and that's saying a lot, given how fresh his music from the time already was. Titles include "Agora Ninguem Chora Mais", "Telefone De Brotinho", "Patapatapata", "Na Bahia Tem", "Jorge Well", "Deixa O Menino Brincar", "Bom Mesmo E Amar", and "O Homem Que Matou O Homem Que Matou O Homem Mau".

Badu is back with some of the deepest, funkiest and best music of her career – a mindblowing treatise for a New Amerykah – and what we'll consider an instant classic whether the world at large catches on or not! Erykah steps up this time with a set that balances the wilder impulses of her criminally underappreciated Worldwide Underground and more of a hip hop based, righteously grooving style – but still bursts with a freshness that's unrivaled to say the least. From free spirited soul, to sparse hip hop funk this record is both blunt and beautiful – with a slow-building emotional resonance that'll reach the most jaded souls. Modern soul music of the first order that gives us goosebumps from the first spin to the last beat! The album kicks off with Erykah riffing on and remixing Ramp's "American Promise" as an intro – and it just gets deeper from there. Producers/collaborators include Madlib, Sa-Ra, Karriem Riggins, James Poyser and ?uestlove. Amazing!!! Titles include "The Healer", "Me", "My People", "Soldier", "The Cell", "Twinkle", "Master Teacher", "The Hump" and "Telephone". The 9th Wonder produced single "Honey" is an unlisted bonus track.

New Tim Gane & Sean O'HaganLa Vie D'Artiste (2CD version) ... CD
Too Pure (UK), 2007. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wonderful soundtrack with a definite Stereolab feel – but one that's never too overstated, and which comes across subtly and slowly over the course of a wide number of instrumental tunes! The collaboration between Tim Gane and Sean O'Hagan really shares the best elements of both artists' music in their famous groups – but it also comes across with a simpler feel too – one that's somewhat gentle at times, and which does a great job of exploring the basic melodic elements of the tunes. Some tracks have just a bit of keyboards and rhythms, others have the fuller orchestrations we love in High Llamas albums – and in a way, the lack of vocals here really reminds us of some of the best extended instrumental passages in O'Hagan's majestic pop suites of a decade or so ago. 2CD version features 45 tracks in all – including "Yoko Johnson", "Dans Le Poste De Television", "Le Consecration", "Alice Sur Scene", "Une Star Du Manga", "Metro Boulot Hippo", and "Les Prix Litteraires".

The tunes are all pretty fresh – and include originals by Keys and others from Wide Hive members Gregory Howe and Matt Montgomery – really perfect settings for Calvin's wonderful work on his instrument, heard here at a level that's tighter than on most recent recordings. Tracks include "Telegraph Blues", "Shaw-Neeq", "The Hernia", "Touch", "You Know The Game", "Electric Keys", and "Backyard". CD

The recording quality – like most of these Smalls Live sets – is excellent, and perfect for capturing the nuances of both Wolfe's writing, and the interplay of the members of the group.

New Jack ArelChappell Recorded Music Library Works – Originals & Remixes ... CD
Chappell/Vadim (France), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD .... Out Of Stock
A long-overdue collection of work from the legendary Jack Arel – one of the lesser-known sound library composers of the late 60s and early 70s – but a true giant in his funky field, as you'll hear by the great music on this set! Arel is French, but he often wrote for British sources – including the Prisoner TV show – so his music has a great blend of Parisian pop modes and chunkier London beats – a style that almost mixes together some of the funkier jazz sensibilities of the sound library generation with the tighter, more romping rhythms that were usually penned for TV and commercial use. The first half of this set features 25 originals by Arel – some in collaboration with Pierre Dutor or Jean-Claude Petit – and often done with trippier touches that include fuzzy guitar or funky flute! The second half features remixes of the originals – tunes that are often a bit longer, and almost restructured as whole new songs. Originals include "Shore Of Sumatra", "Sideral Rhythmic", "De Paris A Liverpool", "Jungle Soul", "Game Trap", "Picture Of Summer", "Train Bleu", "Strange Galaxy", and "Sundown". Remixes include "Drugstore Party" remixed by Le Tone, "Jungle Soul" remixed by Shawn Lee's Ping Pong Orchestra, "The Night Squad" by Danny Wild & Goldfinger, "Loco Robo" by Luke Vibert, "Chicago Girl" remixed by Barth, "Electric Railman" remixed Mowo, and "Crystal Abyss" by Telepopmusik.

New Jorge BenForca Bruta (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Philips/4 Men With Beards, 1970. New Copy (reissue).... Out Of Stock
A fantastically soulful album from Jorge Ben – one of his greatest records ever, and a key part of Brazilian music in the 70s! The album marks an earthier shift for Jorge – a sound that's still rooted in the samba influences of the 60s, but which also takes on a bit more soul at the bottom – thanks to rhythmic contributions from Trio Mocoto, who work here famously to help Ben shape the overall feel of the set! There's still a bit of larger orchestrations at moments, but these are used sparingly just to sweeten the sound – leaving the main force of the music to come from Jorge's guitar, and the cuica, percussion, and tamborim of the trio. The vocals are wonderful too – slightly raspy, and with a bit more feeling than we ever remember Jorge having on record – sometimes a bit intimate, yet always with an undeniable presence throughout. One of those records that still sends chills up our spines, year after year – with tracks that include "Oba La Vem Ela", "Ze Canjica", "Pulo Pulo", "Apareceu Aparecida", "Terezinha", "Mulher Brasileira", "Forca Bruta", "O Telefone Tocou Novamente", and "Charles Junior".

New BT ExpressDo It (Til You're Satisfied) ... LP
Scepter, 1974. New Copy (reissue).... Out Of Stock
The monumental debut of BT Express – and an excellent funk album that often gets overlooked by fans of the music because of the band's bigger fame as a disco group! This first record has the combo grooving hard and instrumentally – in the mode of a tight blacksploitation soundtrack, with plenty of tight wah wah guitar riffing, conga beats, and funky flute and sax – topped off by just the right amount of strings to make the set soar even more! The album's best known for the title track "Do It (Til You're Satisfied)" – which was a big hit, but is still an excellent groover – and the set also includes loads of other great cuts too – like "Express", which was the original song that the created the JBs' response track "Monorail"; "This House is Smokin'", which has lots of funky descending horn bits; and other great tunes that include "Mental Telepathy", "If It Don't Turn You On", and "Do You Like It".

New Manolo JuarezDe Aqui En Mas (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Trova/Disques Dessinee (Japan), 1975. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Really sublime, really unique piano trio work from Manolo Juarez – an obscure 70s session that has a feel that's unlike anything else we can think of! The set was done for the Trova label in Argentina, but it's got echoes of other South American modes throughout – maybe a bit of bossa guitar here, some Chilean flute there, and lots of the modern elements and shadings that a musician like Juarez was absorbing from the best players of the previous generation – both on his continent and the European one. The tunes have this balance of swing and sentiment, modern and folkloric – and the music is filled with a range of deeper, more melancholy moments – juxtaposed with bursts of pure joy. Titles include "La Ultima Palabra", "De Aqui En Mas", "La Loca", "Ya Me Voy Yendo", "La Telesita", and "Cueca De La Vina Nueva". CD

New Henri ReneMusic For Bachelors ... LP
RCA, 1956. Used .... Out Of Stock
A classic album of 50s mood music – partially for its famous cover image of Jayne Mansfield on the telephone! But the music's pretty great too – less of the swinging, dynamic sounds you might guess from the "bachelor" in the title – and more in the mellower, romantic style of earlier 50s instrumentals – with full strings from Henri Rene that swirl and shimmer nicely throughout! Other instrumentation includes piano from Buddy Cole, and guitar from Barney Kessel – and titles include "Easy To Love", "I'm Confessin", "For The Very First Time", "Somebody's Wrong", "Time On My Hands", and "Dinner For One Please James".

New TavaresMadam Butterfly (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1978. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
An incredible album from Tavares – every bit as great on the uptempo end, as you'd expect from their bigger hits, as it is on the sweeter ballad tracks – which step out here as a tremendous surprise! The set was crafted with help from Philly maestro Bobby Martin – and begins with a groove that certainly shows Martin in all of his Sigma-inspired glory – but as the set moves on, it glides into some sweeter, gentler tracks that come across with a mighty mellow soul approach! The set features 3 stellar tracks written by the great Sam Dees – "Games, Games", "Let Me Heal The Bruises", and "My Love Calls" – all of which show a strong deeper soul side of the group. Other tracks are great, too – and include "I'm Back For More", Never Had A Love Like This Before", "Straight From Your Heart", "One Telephone Call Away", and "Positive Forces". 3 bonus tracks: "Never Had A Love Like This Before (US Capitol 12" Single" – and the great instrumental version for that – plus ""Straight From Your Heart (US Capitol 7" Single)".

New VariousSonda – Muzyka Z Programu Telewizyjnego – Library Music From Sonoton Vaults ... CD
GAD (Poland), 1971/Early 80s. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Classic cuts from a famous Polish TV show – mostly pulled from the rich catalog of the German Sonoton sound library! The music here is very heavy on keyboards and tight, dramatic grooves – music that's often in the best modes that so few sound libraries could manage at the time – a style that still hangs on to the higher quality inspirations from 70s funk or soundtrack material, without as much of the clunk that more commercial libraries ran into. Things are also usually full and focused, too – still quite electric and electronic, but without any too-dreamy soundscapes or new-agey bits. The book features full notes on the show and the music in both English and Polish – and titles include "Sound Tide" and "Speedy" by The Milan Pilar Group, "That's Fancy 1" and "Threat To Research" by Sammy Burdson, "Biopulse 2" and "Genesis 1" by Claude Larson, "Back From Wonderland" and "Alexandria" by Mladen Franko, "Star Drops" and "Foreground" by Jeff Newmann, "International Scoop" by Ted Atking & Alain French, and "Touch Tone Keyboard" by Sam Sklar & Gus Galbraith. Also includes one older British cut – "Visitation" by Mike Vickers – used as the main theme of the show! CD

New VariousTears Full Of Soul – Back To The Basement For A Double Helping Of Tear Jerkers From The Heart & Soul ... CD
Castle (UK), Early 70s. Used 2 CDs .... Out Of Stock
An incredible collection of heartbreaking soul work – served up in a variety of different early 70s styles – harmony soul, deep soul, sweet soul, and everything in between! The set's got a slightly hokey title, but it more than makes up for it with the music – a brilliant assortment of indie singles from the start of the 70s – put together with a key focus on slower, mellower tunes that sound perfect in the wee small hours of the evening! There's a good bit of work on here that we haven't seen on CD before, mixed with others that we've never seen reissued at all – and the package has some wonderful notes on the music from the mighty David Cole, of In The Basement fame. 2CD set features 36 tracks in all – including "On The Real Side' by Tommy Keith, "The Story Of Our Love" by The Carstairs, "I Wonder What She's Doing" by Soul Generation, "I'm Glad" by Jimmy James, "Weep For Me" by Brown Sugar with Clydie King, "I Just Want To Be Loved" by Lee Charles, "Time Is Love" by Black Ivory, "Don't Leave Me Baby" by Ray Gant & The Arabian Knights, "Please Let Me Come Home" by Charles Brimmer, "Love On A Two-Way Street" by Lezli Valentine, "I'm So Lost" by Mark Greene, "I Care For You" by Louis Williams, "I'm So Lonely" by The Barrons, "Telegram" by Eleanor Mills, "He's Gone" by Susan Phillips, and "Do My Best" by Jean Carn.

The set's got a similar vibe to the recent Wide Hive album that featured Keys in the group – but this time around, Calvin's solos are much more prominent, and carved up with that hard-edged tone we've always loved so much in his music! The tunes are all pretty fresh – and include originals by Keys and others from Wide Hive members Gregory Howe and Matt Montgomery – really perfect settings for Calvin's wonderful work on his instrument, heard here at a level that's tighter than on most recent recordings. Tracks include "Telegraph Blues", "Shaw-Neeq", "The Hernia", "Touch", "You Know The Game", "Electric Keys", and "Backyard". CD

An 80s collection, but one that's filled with gems from Gil Scott-Heron's legendary early years at Flying Dutchman – a time when he was recording some of his most impressively righteous material ever! The music's a hip mix of protest poetry and sweet jazzy numbers – played with great keyboard accompaniment from frequent partner Brian Jackson on nearly every track – plus help from Hubert Laws on flute and sax, and Bernard Purdie on drums.

Soul Jazz (UK), Late 50s/1960s/1970s. New Copy 2CD .... Out Of Stock
England was a surprisingly funky place in the 60s and 70s – home to a rich array of great grooves created by the scene's important sound library labels – staffed by the cream of the crop of the British jazz musicians and soundtrack composers of the time! The work of these cats often backed bigger names in film and TV – James Bond, The Avengers, Dave Allen, and others – but this set digs even deeper, to uncover a host of great instrumental moments that go way beyond famous movie themes – a wealth of excellent cuts from the late 50s through the late 70s – starting with exotic jazz modes, moving into 60s mod swingers, and including a fair bit of 70s electric funk as well! This scene's been reissued a bit before, but never this well – as Soul Jazz do their usual top-shelf job of bringing the music together – and offering up detailed notes and a great package that really sends the whole thing home. 2CD version features 36 tracks that include "Condition Red" by Barry Stoller, "Light Flight" by Pentangle, "Man Alive" by Tony Hatch, "The Contract Man" by Bullet, "Echo Four Two" by Laurie Johnson, "Man Friday" by Syd Dale, "Hard Hitter" by Keith Papworth, "Fragment Of Fear" by Johnny Harris, "Sort Of Soul" by Birds & Brass, "Fiesta Numero Uno" by The Marleybone Orchestra, "The Persuaders" by John Barry, "Getting Nowhere In A Hurry" by Roy Budd, "Canvas" by Brian Bennett, "Death Line" by Will Malone, "Folk Song" by James Clarke, "Steam Heat" by Barbara Moore, "Artful Dodger" by Syd Dale, "Jaguar" by John Gregory, "Whole Lotta Love" by CCS, "Face Up" by Alan Moorehouse, "Angels" by Alan Parker, and "Soul Thing" by Keith Mansfield.

Philips/Polysom (Brazil), 1968. New Copy (reissue).... Out Of Stock
Groovy psychedelic rock from Brazil – the self-titled effort from Ronnie Von – a Brazilian television personality and musician who stayed incredibly busy from late 60s through the 70s – but recorded few albums as sublime as this album from 1968! The set's really a near-perfect batch of sunshine rock – sung in Portuguese and featuring some of the similar freeform sounds of his Brazilian contemporaries of the time – with groovy western touches in the instrumentation. Ronnie's vocals are backed up by organ washes and piano, buzzing guitars and walloping drums – but the overall feel is quite melodic – wonderful blend of California sunshine and Brazilian rock grooves! Tracks include "Meu Novo Cantar", "Chega De Tudo", "Espelhos Quebrados", Anarquia", "Esperahca De Cantar", "Contudo, Todavia", "Anarquia", "Mil Novecentos E Alem", and "Canto De Despedida".
