Erykah BaduNew Amerykah Part One (4th World War) ... CD
Motown, 2008. Used ... $5.99
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. CD

New Henry ManciniWhat Did You Do In The War Daddy? ... LP
RCA, 1966. Sealed ... $6.99
Kind of nutty stuff from this weird Blake Edwards film that starred James Coburn and Dick Shawn. The material's not a jazz-based as some of Mancini's other scores, but it does have a delightfully nutty sound that's in keeping with the kind of mad 60s film it was written for. The postwar memory of the film situates it in Italy, so a fair number of the melodies have slight Italian overtones – including "Sicily Forever", "Gina", "Wine and Women", and "Festa!".

Billy PaulWar Of The Gods (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Philadelphia International/Big Break (UK), 1974. New Copy ... $14.99
A stone treasure from one of the greatest soul singers of the 70s – and a set you'll regularly find in the coolest of record collections from back in the day! Billy Paul was always one of the hippest talents on Philly International – mixing together soul and jazz influences with a deeper sense of spirituality, and long experience as a sophisticated vocalist. This album's one of his most sublime efforts – kind of a quasi-spiritual record with a similar high-concept approach to some of Marvin Gaye's work from the same time – really righteous, in ways that the Philly label didn't always hit – and which really goes past even most of Billy's already hip previous efforts. Gamble and Huff produced and wrote most of the record – including the two long tracks that make up side one, "I See The Light" and "War Of The Gods", the latter of which starts out slow and moody, then breaks out into a club groove. Other titles include the more standard soul tune "The Whole Town's Talking", plus "Thanks For Saving My Life" and "Peace Holy Peace". CD features bonus tracks – "War Of The Gods (part 1)", "The Whole Town's Talking (single)", and "I Was Married (single)". CD

New Edwin StarrWar & Peace ... LP
Gordy, 1970. Very Good- ... $4.99
A real breakout album for Edwin Starr – and the kind of full-on set that really helped give his music a bold new focus! Starr had already scored nicely on some playful tracks from the Motor City scene of the late 60s – but here, he emerges as a singer with a lot more depth than before – not only on the righteous tunes, like the classic title track – but also on some of the warmer ones too, which showcase a new adult style of singing we might not have expected a few years before! Unlike other Motown efforts of this level, there doesn't seem to be any core arranger and producer – which means that Edwin himself did an even greater job of pulling the whole thing together – a great run of tracks that includes the classic "War (What Is It Good For)", a killer version of "California Soul", one of the best Motown-penned tracks from the time – and the tracks "Time", "I Just Wanted To Cry", "All Around The World", "At Last I Found A Love", "I Can't Replace My Old Love", and "She Should Have Been Home".

Caterina ValenteWake Up & Shake Up/Ich War So Gern Bei Dir ... CD
Vocalion (UK), 1973/1974. New Copy ... $11.99
Two different albums from Caterina Valente – recorded in two different languages! Wake Up & Shake Up has Valente singing in English – something she didn't always do on record, but which comes off very well here – partly because the instrumentation is by Fats Sadi & The Belgians! Fats' combo sounds mighty nice – and a lot more trippy than you'd expect – partly because Caterina also sings with The Valente Singers, who add chorus modes to some tunes, but in a way that's a great mix of creepy and sunny! The overall approach is somewhere between MPS easy listening and the Mike Sammes Singers at their best – both high recommendations from us – and titles include versions of Roy Budd's "Sun On My Face", Jorge Ben's "Ching Ching Ching Ching", Joni Mitchell's "Both Sides Now", Joao Bosco's "Bala Com Bala", and Airto's "Misturada". Ich War So Gern Bei Dir is sung in German – with a set of mostly original tunes from producers Heinz Geitz and Kurt Feltz, who set Caterina Valent up in these sunny, bouncy 70s modes that fit with the best side of the Economic Miracle easy scene of the time! The style situates Valente nicely back in her home turf – and titles include "Oho Aha", "Du Bist Musik", "Wir Kamen In Die Strasse", "Es Gibt Noch Marchen", and "Fiesta Cubana". CD

WarGalaxy ... LP
MCA, 1977. Very Good ... $4.99
A nice later effort from War – one that really has them grooving in a great way! If you never got past the first two tracks on side one – "Galaxy" and "Baby Face" – you might imagine this album's just a middle of the road attempt to move in on the disco sound that was becoming popular. But as you delve into the album further, you can hear their trademark Latin tinged rhythms and breezy, jazzy soloing on harmonica and guitar. Mellow California Latin soul, including the great extended instrumental "The Seven Tin Soldiers", plus "Hey Senorita" and "Sweet Fighting Lady". LP, Vinyl record album

Some tracks are in shorter 45 edits, but that only means you'll get more music in the long run! LP, Vinyl record album

War/Curtis Mayfield/Kool & The GangFirst Annual Benefit Concert For The Congressional Black Caucus ... CD
Chess (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $13.99
A killer moment in 70s soul – but kind of a lost gem, too – given that the album was issued by Chess Records, but features a number of big names who mostly recorded for other companies! The live performance was recorded at the first annual benefit for the Black Congressional Caucus – and the tunes have the right sort of righteous energy to match the important political event – really special performances that include a searing 9 minute version of "Wild & Peaceful" by Kool & The Gang, super-heavy versions of "Give Me Your Love" by Curtis Mayfield and the Mayfield-penned "On & On" by Gladys Knight & The Pips. War follows up with a smoking Hammond-heavy take on "Gypsy Man" – and even Jimmy Witherspoon sounds pretty darn great on a take of his classic "Goin Down Slow". CD

The Atomic Age in all its musical glory – served up here in a wonderful package of music, warnings, and more! The whole thing's one of the coolest "atomic-themed" collections we've ever seen – as it not only features over 100 vintage songs about the rise of the atomic bomb, and all the requisite worries it produced – it also includes two dozen public service announcements, and a bonus DVD with classic civil defense and anti-Communist films from the 50s! The set also features two full spoken word records, too – both on CD – If The Bomb Falls and The Complacent Americans – surprisingly relevant stuff in a post-9/11 generation. And as usual with Bear Family, the overall package is stunning – a great box, overstuffed CDs, and a 292 page hardcover book – full color, filled with graphics and photos from one of the most panicked times in US history!

Vintage material from the key years of calypso in Trinidad – pulled from a host of 78rpm recordings, and presented here in the usual lovely Mississippi Records tyle! Instrumentation is often relatively spare – lively Latin-styled rhythms with acoustic guitar or piano, and some occasional jazzier inflections on horns – all to support the playfully political lyrics in the lead! Titles include "When Me Body Lay down In The Grave" by The Lion, "Lopez Contreras" by Codello's Top Hatters Orchestre, "Inequality Of Life" by Atilla The Hun, "Under The British Commander" by Emery Cournard Serenaders, and "Exploiting" by The Caresser.

Also includes "Super Shine #9", sung by Sister Goose & the Ducklings, which is a very groovy, goofy, soulful number – plus the tracks "Child Of Tomorrow", "Harlem Dreams", "Child Of Tomorrow", and "Come On & Dream Some Paradise".

RCA, 1982. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
Well, it's all pretty much over by now – and this album's kind of a pale imitation of War's earlier excellent sound. All the right elements are there, but the overall sound is pretty lackluster – more of a tourist version of east LA that you'd hear on an episode of Quincy or Hunter, especially when the group adds in a bit of an 80s "street" sound. Just about the only good thing is Lee Oskar's harmonica, which sneaks in and out nicely on the best tracks, adding in some mellower colors that sound ok enough. Titles include "You Got The Power", "The Jungle", "Just Because", and "Cinco De Mayo". LP, Vinyl record album

A great follow-up to War's first Music Band album – and proof that the group was still plenty darn funky at the end of the 70s! Although different from their original Chicano funk groove, the style here is still totally great – long, drawn-out funk that's filled with plenty of sharp edges, stepping basslines, sweet keyboards, and riffing guitars – sometimes a bit warmer than before, but in a way that's still plenty darn soulful. There's almost a bit more of an instrumental focus here than before – especially on the album's 13 minute remake of "The World Is A Ghetto". Other tracks include "Don't Take It Away", "I'll Take Care Of You", "Night People", and "The Music Band 2". LP, Vinyl record album

United Artists/Avenue, 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A monster from start to finish – not only the greatest album from War, but maybe one of the greatest mainstream funk albums of all time! The set's got a really unique groove – one that so many others tried to copy, but which was forged here first – in a wicked LA blend of Chicano funk, heavy organ lines, and soulful singing that sews the whole thing together perfectly. Just about every cut is upbeat and funky – rolling along at that low-rider pace that was War's lasting contribution to funk music – and the album features the huge hits "World Is A Ghetto" and "Cisco Kid", two of the brightest spots on radio funk from the 70s – plus classics like "Four Cornered Room", "City Country City", "Where Was You At", and "Beetles In The Bog". Features great bonus tracks too – previously unreleased "Ghetto Jam" numbers that are even more open and freewheeling than cuts on the album – titles that include "Freight Train Jam", "58 Blues", "War Is Coming (blues version)", and a sweet rehearsal take of "The World Is A Ghetto".

Beat (Italy), 1975. New Copy ... $14.99
One of the greatest Italian crime soundtracks of all time – a totally groovy little record that's done in a style that's quite different than American crime scores of the time, but still completely wonderful! Most of the instrumentation here is relatively spare – almost a small combo funk approach to scoring for a cop film, but done with the penchant for isolated focus on a key instrument that makes Italian soundtracks so great. There's no full horns nor funky orchestrations – and in their place are stepping bass bits, lightly dancing keyboards, and plenty of guitar parts – some jamming, some nicely spacey with a really eerie feel! The sound is great – never as cheesy as other Italian work from the mid to late 70s – and there's a grittier feel here than you'd expect, one that really keeps things interesting. CD features note in English and Italian, and a total of 23 tracks that include "The Reason Of A Just War", "The Punitive Justice", "The Other Face", "Undercover Investigation", "Gangster Story", "Casa Di Muda", and "Chicca".

The set goes way past the previous East Of Underground reissue – to feature work by the groups Soap, Black Seeds, and Sound Trek – all wrapped up in a beautiful package that's as visually pleasing as the music is funky! The cuts here were all recorded by US Army servicemen during the height of the Vietnam war – as Army-issued albums designed to encourage recruitment (as if a few funky grooves could help offset the bad press the war was getting on TV!) But despite that odd origin, the music here is all pretty great – mostly covers of familiar tunes from the time, but recorded with a nicely gritty quality that's mighty nice – and which makes the overall feel of the records like digging into some lost small studio tapes – ala Numero! Now Again have done a great job of putting together the whole package, too – contributing a wealth of notes and photos, and really digging deep into the scene in which these unique records were created. Not only that, but the packaging also replicates the style of the original odd releases too! The set features a CD each of music by East Of Underground and Soap – plus another CD that brings together an unusual double LP by the groups Black Seeds and Sound Trek. Titles include "I Just Want To Celebrate", "Kool & The Gang", "Walking In The Rain", "Backstabbers", "I Love Everything About You", "Ain't No Sunshine", "Go Outside In The Rain", "Black Magic Woman", "Hell Below", "Higher", "Popcorn/Santana", "Walk On By", "Java Girl", and "Get Together".

East Of Underground/SoapEast Of Underground/Soap (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Now Again, 1971. Used 2CD Gatefold ... $6.99
A pair of great albums – brought together in one super-heavy package! First up is the legendary East Of Underground record – an uber-obscure LP recorded in 1971 by a group of US Army servicemen at the Armed Forces Network studios in Frankfurt, Germany – originally used as a recruiting tool during the Vietnam war! Given the strength of the set, we wouldn't be surprised if plenty of folks signed up for a tour of duty after hearing it – as the set cooks like some of the best American funk from the indie 45 world at the time. The production is nice and dark – with an echoey quality that makes us guess the album was a live recording – done by American servicemen with the feel of some backroom funk show from the Indy or Ohio scene of the 70s. Some of the tracks are familiar numbers from American hits – but redone here with a nicely gritty feel – and titles include the awesome medley "Bet'Ya Never Lose My Love California Dreamer" – plus "Higher", "Smiling Faces", "Hell Below", "Getting Over", "Popcorn/Santana", "I Love You", "Java Girl", and "Walk On By". The set also includes the Soap album – a very similar record with a mix of rock and soul, done with the same sort of US Army-endorsed approach – and some great raw production that really makes the album sparkle! Many tunes are covers, but they're played here with a gritty live energy – so that even the rock tunes feel a bit funky at times – given a really odd edge. Titles include weird versions of "Uncle Albert", "Ticket To Ride", "Southern Man", "I Just Want To Celebrate", "Get Together", and "Walk Away". CD

New Ella FitzgeraldElla In Berlin – Mack The Knife ... LP
Verve, Early 60s. Very Good ... $2.99
Quite a popular live album from Ella – recorded in Berlin at the height of the cold war years – featuring a famous recording of "Mack The Knife" that almost blew away Bobby Darin's hit with the cut! The album's nicely free of some of the stodginess of some of Ella's Songbook albums from the same time – with light and jazzy backing by a group that includes Jim Hall, Paul Smith, Wilfred Middlebrooks, and Gus Johnson. Titles include "Mack The Knife", "How High The Moon", "Too Darn Hot", "Gone With The Wind", "Misty", and "Summertime". LP, Vinyl record album

New Frankie Goes To HollywoodWelcome To the Pleasuredome ... LP
ZTT/Island, 1984. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $3.99
Arguably one of the greatest concept albums of the 80s – and the only really strong full length album cut by Frankie Goes To Hollywood! At the time of the set, the group was riding high on the success and controversy of their singles "Relax" and "Two Tribes" – but in the ambitious ZTT mode, sought to expand their sound way past familiar hits, and into a realm of sonic exploration that rivaled that of labelmates Art Of Noise. Don't get us wrong, because the Frankie of this album is still very much in groove-oriented territory – but they also let Horn take over with some more striking tunes that are both longer and shorter than the usual pop track – offsetting the vocal numbers on the record with a rich tapestry of musical backdrops that also more firmly forward the group's social and sexual leanings. The album features surprising covers of "War", "Do You Know The Way To San Jose", and "Born To Run" – plus the hits "Relax" and "Two Tribes", and the original numbers "Welcome To the Pleasure Dome", "Krisco Kisses", "The Ballad Of 32", "Wish The Lads Were Here", "Black Night White Light", "The Only Star In Heaven", "The Power Of Love", and "Bang".

Funk IncChicken Lickin' ... LP
Prestige/BGP (UK), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99
Funky organ, hard tenor sax, and plenty of choppy guitar make this another jazz funk gem in the crown of the legendary Funk Inc! The group are still totally at the top of their game here – stepping out with a deep, soulful Indy-bred blend of jazz and funk – a groove that was easily one of the hippest going in the early 70s Prestige Records scene – and that's saying a lot, given the company the label was keeping at the time! The record's got one track that features some nice soulful vocals – the political cut "Let's Make Peace & Stop The War" – but the best cuts are the instrumentals, grooving along hard in the band's best modal funky tradition! Titles include "The Better Half", "Jung Bungo", and "Running Away". LP, Vinyl record album

Charlie HadenLiberation Music Orchestra ... CD
Impulse, 1969. Used ... $5.99
One of the most beautiful albums that Charlie Haden ever recorded – and if he only ever appeared on one record in his life, we'd still love him tremendously for this one! The album has a feel that's very much in keeping with both the "liberation" and "orchestra" in the title – "liberation", in that the music is filled with inspiration from South American sources, and has a strongly political feel at times; and "orchestra" because the group here is somewhat large, and filled with a tremendous array of expressive players – including Gato Barbieri on tenor, Dewey Redman on alto and tenor, Don Cherry on cornet and flutes, Michael Mantler on trumpet, Roswell Rudd on trombone, Robert Northern on French horn, Paul Motian and Andrew Cyrille on percussion, Carla Bley on piano, and Perry Robinson on clarinet. Haden leads these disparate talents through a set of tremendously focused music – filled with as many ideas as it is with a sense of humanity and soul – all to brilliantly point the way forward for the new sound of Impulse Records in the years after Coltrane's death! Titles include the classic "Song For Che", plus Ornette's "War Orphans", Carla Bley's "The Interlude", and "Song Of The United Front", by Hans Eisler, and with words by Brecht! CD

One of Hag's stellar early 70s efforts for Capitol – with the prolific Merle dividing the set between his own numbers, a handful of traditional pieces and some nice tracks by other writers. Hag also strays from the straight honky tonk he pioneered in the late 60s into some gospel and dixieland jazz influences. Tracks include the maudlin Hag-penned title number, "If We Make It Through December", plus "To Each His Own", Lefty Frizell's "I'm An Old, Old Man (Tryin' To Live While I Can)", "This Cold War", "There's Just One Way" and more.

ImpressionsTimes Have Changed ... CD
Curtom/Warner (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $13.99
A post-Curtis Mayfield album by The Impressions – but one that crackles with the raw righteousness of Curtis' first few solo albums on Curtom! Mayfield's place here is held by the amazing Leroy Hutson – one of our favorite soul talents of the 70s, really sparkling here in the trio before moving onto his own run of classics for Curtom – with a vocal quality that's solidly soulful, and possibly even more progressively pointed than Curtis. Hutson helped co-arrange the album with Riley Hampton – and production is by Curtis Mayfield, who brings in all the right elements of fuzz and funk to really keep the group sounding hip. Titles include the classic peace song "Stop the War", plus "I Need To Belong To Someone", "Love Me", "Our Love Goes On & On", "This Love's for Real", and a cool cover of "Inner City Blues". CD

The sound quality is great – which is important, as Willie's got a style of guitar that's almost lighter in tone than some of his contemporaries – a deft thinness that really comes through well in this presentation of the music, really showing his skill on the strings. Vocals are surprisingly raw at points, making for a real contrast to the guitar – and titles include "I Know His Blood Can Make Me Whole", "Praise God I'm Satisfied", "Dark Was The Night Cold Was The Ground", "When The War Was On", and "Mother's Children Have A Hard Time".

New Joy Of CookingCloser To The Ground ... LP
Capitol, 1971. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $5.99
We don't normally dig hippies that much, but these guys are great – and this album may be one of the sweetest we've heard from the Bay Area scene of the early 70s! Joy Of Cooking have a wonderful style that puts plenty of jazz in the vocals of lead singers Toni Brown and Terry Garthwaite – a sweetly gliding approach to the music that pulls the folksy instrumentation of the rest of the combo into hipper territory, and which almost points towards some of the best breezy vocal work to come out of the SF scene later in the 70s. Instrumentation includes keyboards, guitar, alto sax, trombone, and lots of great percussion that punctuates the tunes with an earthy groove, and really emphasizes the rhythmic quality of the work. Titles include "Pilot", "Closer To The Ground", "Blues For A Friend", "New Colorado Blues", "A Thousand Miles", "Sometimes Like a River", and "The War You Left". LP, Vinyl record album

Yusef LateefMorning – The Savoy Sessions ... LP
Savoy, 1957. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $9.99
A nice 2LP 70s reissue, pulling together the tracks from 2 sessions in 1957, but issued on 3 separate albums for Savoy. Jazz Mood, Jazz For Thinkers and Dreamer feature the great multi-reed player amidst a tight group of Detroit players Curtis Fuller, Hugh Lawson, Ernie Farrow, Louis Hayes and Doug Watkins. As you'd expect these sides are a blend of hardbop influences with some Africanist leanings, a great document of the blending of in and "out" styles that were taking place in the local scenes of American cities in the post war years, never too over the top, but subtly sneaking Lateef's explorations of exoticism into more conventional elements of the tunes. 13 tracks in all, including "O'Blues", "Ameena", "Yusef's Mood", "Space", "Midday", "Polarity", "Happyology", "Blues In Space", "Morning", "Metaphor", "G. Bouk", "Beauregard" and "The Beginning". Very nice! LP, Vinyl record album

Barbara MasonTransition ... CD
Buddah/Soul Brother (UK), 1974. New Copy ... $16.99
Transition is right – as the cover has Barbara floating above a Curtis Mayfield-ish scene of drugs, war, gambling, and Satan – a really righteous image that beautifully sums up the vibe of the record! The set was recorded at Sigma Sound in Philly – with excellent arrangements from Norman Harris, Richard Rome, and Bobby Eli – who all bring in a slight blacksploitation vibe to match the image on the cover – easily the funkiest setting that Barbara Mason ever had! But the real star here is the lady herself – who's pushed herself beyond the little girl soul themes of a few years before, to take on a host of societal issues with a surprisingly righteous vibe – mostly on tracks she penned herself. The song titles sum up lots of the energy of the record – and include "World in a Crisis", "Trigger Happy People", "The Devil is Busy", "Sunday Saint (Weekday Sinner)", "Half Sister Half Brother", and "Time Is Running Out". A real surprise from Barbara Mason – and a great one too! CD

Masterful reggae instrumentals from the great Tommy McCook! Reggae In Jazz does indeed have some jazz-steeped solos augmenting the vibe quite nicely, but it's perhaps not the full on reggae/jazz hybrid the title suggests – which is a good thing, actually! The rhythms are strongly rooted in classic Dynamic and Channel One reggae instro territory, but the vibe is enhanced a bit by soul jazzy organ, guitar and more on the solo tip – and a bit of funk, too! Produced by Buster Riley, with Sly Dunbar, Santa Davos. Robbie Shakespeare, Chinna Smith, Ansel Collins, Jackie Mitoo and other legends on the session. Titles include "Grass Root", "Caution", "Sin", "Wild Bunch", "Bam-Bam", "Collin '1'", "Collin '2'", "Bad Man", "Good Bye". "Black-Out", "Rock Away" and "War".

Merry Go Round/Emmitt RhodesListen Listen – The Definitive Collection (Merry Go Round/American Dream) ... CD
A&M/Rev-Ola (UK), 1967/1970. Used ... $8.99
The complete A&M recordings of The Merry Go Round and later solo act Emmitt Rhodes – lesser-remembered pop treasures from the end of the 60s, really sparkling nicely in this well-done set! The Merry Go Round's heard here on their one and only album for A&M – a self-titled set from 1967, done in a style that mixes some of the sunniness of the LA sound of the time with slightly introspective folksy touches, and a few moments that almost hint at a more British invasion sort of style. There's a depth here that reminds us of our favorite Hollies albums of the period – a ear that goes way beyond simple pop single stylings, but also never gets too bogged down in overly-complicated song structures. The balance is a hard one to pull off, but Merry Go Round do it perfectly – thanks to the creative vision of Emmitt Rhodes, who whote most of the tunes and sings lead vocals. Rhodes later stepped out on his own as a solo act, and is heard here on his 1969 album The American Dream, plus some additional bonus singles – all of which follow the Merry Go Round style nicely, but also get even more personal, and seem to pick up a few well-placed singer-songwriter touches along the way. The CD features a total of 29 tracks in all – plus some great notes that helps you reconstruct the history of Rhodes and the group. Titles include "You're A Very Lovely Woman", "Live", "Pardon Me", "Mother Earth", "Low Down", "Where Have You Been All My Life", "We're In Love", "Gonna Fight The War", "In Days Of Old", "Holly Park", "Come Ride Come Ride", and "Textile Factory".

The setting of the film is pre-World War I Austria, and it has a strong dramatic cast, so the elegance is quite befitting – but it's never stodgy or anything less than warm. The strings soar lightly for the most part, with some tenser dramatic moments, too. Very nice, classy work from the maestro.

The record's got a great lean feel – almost a return to the modes that Omar first released on his classic material for Talking Loud – that tight, no-nonsense approach to soul that really blows away most of the competition by showing that a heck of a lot can be done with just a little! Omar's vocals are very firmly in the lead – serving up positive, thoughtful lyrics that show why his work has always gone far beyond any mainstream cliches in R&B – and which continue to mark the man as one of the most powerful forces in the underground. The set's got guest work from Scratch Professor, Caron Wheeler, and a few others – but honestly, Omar's the Man who's really got us paying attention all the way through!

Grooves unlike anything else you've ever heard before – the rightly legendary musical legacy of William Onyeabor, one of the most enigmatic talents to come from the African scene of the 70s! The work here is all plenty darn funky, but it's also very different from familiar Afro Funk too – as the instrumentation is heavy on keyboards, handled by William with incredible dexterity – and spun out in these soaring lines that bristle with righteous touches that really support the message of his tunes! The vibe mixes in some electro elements with long-drawn rhythms – and the vocals often step aside for lots of keyboard and rhythm interplay, then come in to send things home at just the right moment. Onyeabor's been a pretty elusive cat over the years, and it's taken Luaka Bop quite some time to put this collection together – amazing work that may well make the album one of the most important to ever come from the label – and the first introduction to the non-African world of Onyeabor's incredible sounds. Titles include "Body & Soul", "Atomic Bomb", "Something You'll Never Forget", "Why Go To War", "Love Is Blind", "Fantastic Man", and "Let's Fall In Love". CD

The package is a great antidote to some of the fuzzier Ra live sets on the market – as it's got the care that the Trost label has brought to their reissues of material by Peter Brotzmann and the FMP generation – with sound that's more than sensitive enough to capture some surprisingly great spare piano passages, as well as the full force of the Arkestra when they really get going. Sun Ra is still a tremendous force on the keys at this time – and delivers a lot of solos that are interspersed between larger, more structured songs – played with fire by a lineup that includes John Gilmore on tenor and clarinet, Marshall Allen on alto and flute, James Jackson on bassoon and infinity drum, and Danny Ray Thompson on baritone and flute. Titles include a number of "untitled improvisation" tracks – plus "Big John's Special", "Days Of Wine & Roses", "What's New", "Nuclear War", "East Of The Sun", "Yeah Man", "Mack The Knife", "Day Dream", and "Love In Outer Space".

An augmented reissue of the classic Revelation Time LP, by this roots singer who got his start singing lover's tunes and novelty cuts for the sound systems. By the time he'd begun recording the tracks that were to make up this recording though, he had become fully ensconced in Socialist ideology and the Rasta faith, so you can imagine this is not too far from Burning Spear's Social Living, at least in it's lyrical content. Though he'd also worked with the great Bunny Lee, many of the tracks here were done with Lee Perry with whom Max would go on to later collaborate on further classics, like the War Inna Babylon set. A number of the tracks here had been cut as sides for the Upsetter label, and have that skanking, funky reggae the Upsetters were famous for as the rhythm tracks. Includes "Blood of the Prophet Parts 1 & 2", "Open the Iron Gate Parts 1 & 2", "Melt Away (12" version)", "Three Blind Mice" and "Valley of Jehosaphat". CD

One of the most searing, soaring albums ever from Santana – a set that takes all the power of the previous two records, and packs it into one tight little set! There's plenty of Latin influences going on – mixed with heavy fuzz from Carlos, and lots of jazz and funky touches too – way more happening on the rhythm tip than most of Santana's contemporaries – which is why the record continues to find such a wonderfully wide audience over the years. Drop cuts like "Batuka","Toussaint L'Overture", "Jungle Strut", or "Para Los Rumberos" next to tracks by War, Mandrill or Tower Of Power and you'll see what we mean – and titles also include "No One To Depend On","Taboo", "Guajira" and "Everything's Coming Our Way".

Pete SeegerRainbow Race/Now/Young Vs Old ... CD
Omni/Columbia (Australia), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99 19.98
A trio of later LPs from the incalculably important topical folk stalwart and archivist Pete Seeger – 1971's Rainbow Race, 68's Now and '69's Young Vs Old – plus a holy grail of a bonus track – bundled in this excellent 2CD set from Omni! Rainbow Race starts out disc 1, an album that's understated in production, but feels more modern than many of Seeger's albums, and it's both massive in mood and masterful in material. It's stocked largely with Seeger originals rather than the shared folk songbook he so often worked within – with titles including "Last Train To Nuremburg", "Sailing Down This Golden River", "Old Devil Time", "Words Words Words" and more. It's followed by Now – another great record with more banjo in the sound, and more diverse songs – with modern folk scene standards, talking blues and public domain revisitations, strident and in a live setting, with "Adam The Inventor", "Talking Ben Tre", Blacklash Blues", "Cotton Needs Pickin So Bad", "The Cities Are Burning" and more. Young Vs Old follows a similar trail, with some bigger emotions as well as sparer numbers, with titles including "Who Knows", "Bring The Home", "Ballad Of The Fort Hood Three", "Be Kind To Your Parents", "Get Up And Go", "Mayrowana" and more. Last and certainly not least, the bonus track "I Feel Like I'm Fixin To Die Rag" – a killer version of the defiant, Anti Vietnam War sing-along standard that was purportedly banned in 1970 and released officially for the first time ever on this CD!

TemptationsSolid Rock ... LP
Gordy, 1972. Very Good- Gatefold ... $14.99
A masterful album of righteous trippy soul – recorded during the height of the Temptations' strong association with Norman Whitfield! The record has more than a few political/social conscience songs – like "Take A Look Around", "Stop The War Now", and "Superstar (Remember How You Got Where You Are)" – but the strongest point is the music, more than the message. The arrangements are super funky – with complicated stretched out passages filled with spacey effects, rumbling bass, fuzzy guitars, and cool processing on the vocals. "The End Of Our Road" has some great tight drums, and "What It Is" begins with rolling snare work that's in a Sly Stone sort of groove. Vocals are great as always, and the album also features a long mellow cover of "Ain't No Sunshine". LP, Vinyl record album

Peter ThomasDeutsche Filmkomponisten Vol 5 ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), 1960s. New Copy ... $19.99 26.98
A great little volume dedicated to the full range of film music scored by German maestro Peter Thomas in the 60s – one that goes way past some of his more familiar work reissued on other compilations! This 34 track set features music from over two dozen films – tunes that range from straight jazz, to horror themes, western numbers, space tunes, and more dramatic orchestrations – often touched with the sort of mad instrumental moments, or sharp sonic bursts we love in Thomas soundtracks! As with other volumes in the Deutsche Filmkomponisten set, the package comes with a booklet nearly 90 pages in length – with notes on the films, color poster images, and more – all to augment the music nicely. Includes music from the films Der Diamantenprinz, Die Weisse Spinne, Flucht Nach Berlin, Es War Mir Ein Vergnugen, Die Weibchen, Playgirl, Raumpatrouille Orion, Happening In Weiss, Der Unheimliche Monch, Verspatung In Marienborn, and Das Indische Tuch – plus many more!

TRASE (Tape Recorder & Synthesiser Ensemble)Tape Recorder & Synthesiser Ensemble ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), Early 80s. New Copy 2LP ... $18.99
Never-heard sounds from this amazing UK duo – an early 80s outfit who went by the name of Tape Recorder & Synthesizer Ensemble – a very good choice, given the instrumentation on the set! Most of the music here is relatively spare, but surprisingly tuneful – kind of in a space between early Sheffield electronics and some of the catchier electro instrumental work of the mid 80s – often tweaked with experimental production and bits of tape, but usually just based around a guitar riff, a keyboard line, and a drum machine rhythm! Both musicians were in their teens at the time, and had no further aims of mainstream fame – but the record's easily as good as the best UK indie electronics on labels like Factory, Rough Trade, or Cherry Red at the time. Titles include "Sketch 1", "Harmonium", "Electronic Rock", "Talk To Me", "Unrequited Love", "We Are So Fragile", "This Life Of Yours", and "War Machine". LP, Vinyl record album

A nice later effort from the legendary Wailing Souls – and their last album for Greensleeves, before rebooting a couple years later! '84's Stranded is a pretty strong record, with those achingly soulful voices front and center, and with a modern sound that holds up quite well! Sly Dunbar is on electronic drums, with synth by Keith Sterling another solid modern touch – and titles include "Stranded In LA", "File For Your Machete", "Thinking", "Peace And Love Shall Reign", "Helmet Of Salvation", "War Deh Round A John Shop", "Eyes Of Love", "Sunrise Till Sunset", "The Best Is Yet To Come" and more.

Scott WalkerTil The Band Comes In (with bonus download) ... LP
Fontana (UK), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $41.99
Scott Walker's fifth solo album, and an oft-overlooked gem that really shows some new sides of his talents! The style here is a bit less iconic than that of the previous two records – more personal or sentimental at times, yet still served up with that uncannily observant sensibility that Scott inherited from Jacques Brel. Walker's voice is wonderfully fluid – still as dark as before, but with a slightly jazzy sensibility at times – no doubt picked up from his tours at the time in the UK as a small club vocalist. The album features a surprising guest appearance from Esther Ofarim, who sings solo on the track "Long About Now" – an odd arrangement that came about because Scott and her shared the same manager, Ady Semel, who also was sort of the director for the album. Titles include "Little Things", "Joe", "Thanks For Chicago Mr James", "Til The Band Comes In", "Cowbells Shakin", "The War Is Over", and "Jean The Machine". LP, Vinyl record album

WinstonsColor Him Father ... LP
Metromedia, Late 60s. Very Good ... $14.99
The one and only album ever cut by The Winstons – an obscure mixed-race soul combo who had roots in Otis Redding's touring band, and who hit big with a soul Grammy in 1969 for the title track to this one, "Color Him Father". The cut's an amazing document of its time, a sweet little story-song about a boy who's lost his dad in the war (Vietnam?), and who grows to love the new guy that his mom is dating. Sounds sappy, but it's one of the most compelling soul singles of the 60s – and is always a treat to hear. The other big cut on the record is the classic breakbeat track "Amen Brother", which is an instrumental reading of the gospel standard, done in a fast-funk style that's been sampled for years – both by hip hoppers and by drum n bass producers! (Noteworthy, too, is the fact that this 33rpm album offers a bonus on the cut that the 45rpm single does not – you can play the album at 45rpm to speed up the break in the track, getting a great jungle effect!) The rest of the record is pretty good – but mostly features the group trying to cover work by other artists, on songs like "The Chokin Kind", "The Greatest Love", "Everyday People", and "Only The Strong Survive".

Warner, 1971. Very Good Gatefold ... $11.99
The last album recorded by Charles Wright with the Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band – and a set that's even more stretched out and trippy than their other albums! Gone are the tight short cuts of earlier days, and in their place are longer messed-up funky numbers that have more of a jamming party feel – tunes that let the whole group open up in a relaxed and soulful mode that must have been plenty great to see happening live in the studio! Charles sings in a style that mixes straighter soul with "crazy man" kind of lyrics – of the sort that he later sang on his own LPs – and the album features the wicked tune "Express Yourself II", a great follow-up to the first one, done in a more open-styled way, but still with the same hook and rhythm! Other tracks include "Just To Settle My Nerves", "Let's Make Love Not War", "What Can You Bring Me?", "Your Love", and "You're So Beautiful". LP, Vinyl record album

Mercury/Universal (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... Around September 25, 2014
The start of the legendary second chapter for the Gap Band – the point when the group had reemerged as the tight funky trio of the Wilson Brothers, with a groove that would really set them up nicely for the 80s! This first album in the new format has a wonderfully tight feel – still plenty of sharp edges that echo their earlier groove, but a leaner quality too – one that's got the bass and drums snapping together wonderfully, really setting the tone for the heaviest grooves. There's also a few mellower cuts too – which really sound great, and give the record the same sort of balance you might hear on work by Heaven & Earth at the time. War's Lonnie Simmons produced – and held the cash bag all the way to the bank! Titles include "I'm In Love", "Got To Get Away", "Messin With My Mind", "Shake", "Baby Baba Boogie", "Open Your Mind Wide", and "I Can Sing". CD

Bruce HaackElectric Lucifer (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Columbia/Omni (Australia), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Around February 1, 2014 (delayed)
One of the greatest moog albums ever – all original sounds and tunes from the legendary Bruce Haack! Haack had spent most of the 60s doing small label kiddie records on his own, but this late 60s gem on Columbia is probably his best known work – a masterpiece of short and groovy little songs that are heavy on analogue electronics and special effects! There's a really fuzzy feel to most of the work here – heavy echo and reverb that give the album a very dark feel, even when the songs are a bit light and playful. Haack's lyrics are great too – quite conceptual, with a spiritual undercurrent that's surprisingly great – and which adds a further layer of meaning to the set! The whole thing's a bit like the Silver Apples, but more experimental – and there's a love of sound, shape, and texture that Haack never matched again on later albums. A key predecessor to Suicide, Stereolab, and countless others – with titles that include "Electric To Me Turn", "Cherubic Hymn", "Program Me", "War", "Incantation", "Angel Child", "Super Nova", "Requiem", "Song Of The Death Machine", and "National Anthem To The Moon".
