4.60 10

A very odd bit of homegrown work from the almost never-heard Bob Chance – a set rescued from private press obscurity by the efforts of Jonny Trunk, and finally brought out to a larger global audience! Bob's got a sound that's exactly what you might guess from the cover – honest and upfront, cheap enough to warrant only a black and white image, yet surprisingly compelling once you dig into the music – especially as things move along! All tracks are originals, penned in a mix of heartfelt affection, and attempts at clever scene-setting – and in addition to some great sing-songy moments, there's also a few numbers that throw in some keyboard-heavy disco – including a nine minute jam on the title track! There's a nice jazzy number called "Colors" – and other tracks include "Brown Skinned Girl", "It's Broken", "Honey Lips", "Jungle Talk", and "I See Her".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Ata Tak/Bureau B (Germany), 1982. New Copy
Some of the darkest music ever recorded by the quirky German pop group Der Plan – their soundtrack for the 1982 film Die Letzte Rache, recorded in a series of short and quirky little tunes! The sound here is similar to Dar Plan's other albums of the time, but perhaps a bit bleaker at times ... CD

Harvest/Light In The Attic, 1971. New Copy
A classic set from British singer/songwriter Michael Chapman – his last recorded for the Harvest Records label, but done in a way that has the sort of rootsy undercurrents you'd be more likely to find in work from the US! Chapman plays both acoustic and electric guitar, often blended ... CD
RecordPlex, 1982. New Copy
A beautiful set from the enigmatic Bob Theil – not the better-known, differently-spelled Bob who produced jazz records for Impulse and Flying Dutchman – but an obscure Scottish singer/songwriter who comes across here with a very evocative feel! The album's one of those tiny pressings ... CD
Be Good
Motema, 2012. New Copy
Wonderful work from Gregory Porter – easily one of the best new jazz singers to emerge in the past decade or so, and one whose approach is soulful enough to rival the greats of the 70s! There's echoes here of Bill Withers, Gil Scott-Heron, and Al Jarreau – and like all those artists, ... CD
Milagre
Zoho, 2013. New Copy
Maucha sings and Helio plays – in a sweet set that makes for a wonderfully warm and stripped down batch of Brazilian vocals! The album's got a sound that's a bit different than the usual bossa outing – given Helio's rich touch on the piano, which isn't afraid to go for bolder notes at ... CD
