Vari-Colored Songs – A Tribute To Langston Hughes
Music Maker, 2014. New Copy
A really wonderful solo album from Leyla McCalla of the Carolina Chocolate Drops – and a set we dig even more than her music with that group! The album's something of a tribute to Langston Hughes – and definitely features a fair bit of words from his famous poems – but the ... CD

Delmore, 1970. New Copy
Sublime solo work from Peter Walker – a hell of a guitarist with a very edgy sound, and a vocalist with this dark tone that almost takes us back to some of the moodier moments from the early Velvet Underground! The combination is amazing – very deft, complicated lines on a Gibson ... CD

Real Gone, 1946/1947. New Copy 2 CDs
An amazing, largely unheard collection of recordings by Bob Wills & His Texas Playboys! If you're not down with the lore, what's now known as The Tiffany Transcriptions is a series of recordings that the western swing pioneers cut for Tiffany Music, Inc. in the mid-to-late 40s, which were ... CD

Vanguard/Light In The Attic, 1968. New Copy Gatefold
A totally hip instrumental album from Peter Walker – a Vanguard Records treasure that we'd rank right up there with the label's classics from Sandy Bull! Like Bull, Walker has a way of taking older folk instrumentation into richly psychedelic territory – working here on both the Indian ... CD

Out Among The Stars
Columbia, 1981/1984. New Copy
A surprisingly strong set of previously unreleased Johnny Cash – recorded with producer Billy Sherrill, mostly in 1984, but with a couple sessions from '81 – and it's honestly as great, and a heck of a lot better than a bunch of Johnny's music that actually DID see commercial release ... CD

What A Beautiful Place
Reflection/Numero, 1971. New Copy
A beautiful early 70s debut LP from a then 20-year-old, Halifax reared Catherine Howe – produced and arranged by US jazz pianist Bobby Scott in a mode that manages to feel lush and opulent while never belying Catherine's warmth, intimacy and maturity – and quite possibly the best ... CD

Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2CD
A wealth of rare group soul and doo wop from the Bay Area scene – a good deal of which has never been issued before! The work here comes from the same Music City studios that have been brought to light in recent years as a treasure trove of 60s soul and 70s funk – and these tracks ... CD

Z Records (UK), Late 80s/Early 90s. New Copy 2 CDs
A killer collection of Italo House tracks – maybe the best we've ever seen to really get at the heart of the genre! Disco never died in Italy during the 80s – as evidence by the number of dance compilations from the decade with a boot-shaped image on the front – and Italian DJs ... CD

Columbia/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1977. New Copy
A real classic from The Manhattans – and just the kind of record to show why the group stayed so great after all the years! The ballads are wonderful – arguably even better than the group's indie label days – with a depth of feeling, fullness of harmonies, and magical balance ... CD

CBS/Wounded Bird, 1972. New Copy 2 CDs
A Japanese-only album from Weather Report – recorded early in the group's career, and with some of the same sort of freedoms that Miles Davis was getting on his own double-length dates from Japan! The tracks here are quite stretched out, and often adventurous – showing a marked ability ... CD

Dore/Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy
Superb soul from The Superbs – a great group from the LA scene of the 60s – and one who never cracked the charts as much as their contemporaries! The group mixes a female voice in with the male harmonies – in a style that doesn't always have the female singer in the lead, but ... CD
