E Pluribus Unum
Vanguard, 1968. New Copy
CD ... Around August 5, 2014
Sandy Bull's third album – a pair of long pieces that combine the multicultural folk instrumental experimentation – with Bull playing guitar, bass, bass drum, oud and hand percussion – rolling in a bit more electric blues on one side, and meandering psychedelic impulses on the ... CD (Folk/Country)

Takoma, 1971. New Copy
CD ... Around August 5, 2014
Fahey's ambitious, fully realized America double LP from 1971!

It's déjà vu all over again, in this strong set of tracks that features Willie with his best lead singer, Hector Lavoe! The tracks are pulled from the pair's strong work for Fania from the early 70s – and it's a great package that includes some of Willie's strongest recordings from ... CD (Latin)

Adalberto
Fania, 1977. New Copy
CD ... Around August 15, 2014
A great set by one of the best Latin vocalists of the 70s – a bold solo effort recorded after a number of successful recordings with other groups! The set was produced by Ray Barretto, with whom Adalberto sang famously in years past – and is done with a really solid salsa sound that ... CD (Latin)

Fania, 1976. New Copy
CD ... Around August 15, 2014
The second album from Seguida – a great little Latin funk group from the Nuyorican scene of the 70s! This set's got Seguida working in a style that's got a bit more of a dancefloor focus than before – bringing in some of the fuller Latin disco touches that were popular in the wake of ... CD (Latin)

El Conde
Fania, 1974. New Copy
CD ... Around September 1, 2014
The classic first album as a solo act from Pete "El Conde" Rodriguez – not the boogaloo artist with the same first and last name, but the singer who'd rose to fame on a series of classic albums with Johnny Pacheco! The style here is rich and soulful – a return to tradition in ... CD (Latin)

Hommy – A Latin Opera
Fania, 1973. New Copy
CD ... Around August 15, 2014
Orchestra Harlow's answer to the Who's Tommy – Hommy, a Latin Opera, and one of the few concept albums we know from the New York Latin scene of the time! The tracks are fairly short, and they're separated by short "interludes" throughout the album that feature some cool spoken bits ... CD (Latin)

Rompecabezas
Fania, 1972. New Copy
CD ... Around September 15, 2014
One of the standout records from the second era of Bobby Valentin's career – a smoking 70s salsa set, bubbling over with great bass work by Bobby, and featuring some great instrumental touches, like tenor sax and vibes, which really push the sound past the usual! Lead vocals are by Marvin ... CD (Latin)

Fania, 1972. New Copy
CD ... Around August 15, 2014
Larry Harlow and crew pay tribute to the great Arsenio Rodriguez in this wonderful set of tracks with a classic Afro-Cuban feel!

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Se La Comio
Fania, Late 60s. New Copy
CD ... Around August 15, 2014
If a cover was enough, this album would already be great – but it's also one of the hardest-grooving sets from Bobby Valentin, cut at the end of the 60s with a heavy early salsa groove! Bobby's really stepping off his Latin soul work nicely with the set – moving into a realm of longer, ... CD (Latin)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Ali Baba
Fania, Late 60s. New Copy
CD ... Around August 15, 2014
One of the wildest albums in the history of Latin music – a crazy batch of Latin soul tunes made by Louie Ramirez under the alter ego of Ali Baba! The album starts with Ali saying "I hope you buy this album. I need the bread to buy a couple of camels. You see, I haven't had a hump in ... CD (Latin)

On Top
Fania, 1968. New Copy
CD ... Around August 15, 2014
A killer rare boogaloo album – and one of the few great late 60s sides cut by pianist Monguito Santamaria, son of Mongo! Monguito's different than his old man in that he's a pianist and a singer – and not a percussionist – but this gem of an album has a hard-hitting sound that ... CD (Latin)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Salsa Y Control
Cotique, Early 70s. New Copy
CD ... Around August 15, 2014
A stone kicker by the Lebron Brothers – not as all-out Latin soul as the group's first few records, but a heck of a great session nonetheless! The album's got the brothers moving into more of a 70s salsa mode, but still keeping the small combo edge of their earlier albums – singing in ... CD (Latin)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Cotique, 1968. New Copy
CD ... Around August 15, 2014
Good people, these Latin Teens – a very cool group that was young enough to not worry about names or labels, and who jammed in the best open-ended style of the time! As their name might imply, the group was mostly made up of kids – and as such, they had kind of a freewheeling approach ... CD (Latin)

CD ... Early August, 2014
A brilliant Japanese-only album from Herbie – quite different than his US work at the time! Although the Herbie in America in 1981 was very heavily involved in electric keyboard work and more R&B-oriented styles of expression – this Japanese-recorded Herbie's an all-acoustic one, ... CD (Jazz)

Stag O Lee (Germany), 1930s/1940s. New Copy
LP ... Early August, 2014
A tightly swinging batch of late 30s jazz and nascent rhythm & blues numbers from the early 40s – the pivotal period in which veteran players of the grander swing orchestras of the years prior were paring down into smaller combo – and knocking out a grittier, more primal sound! It's ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz)

A wonderfully spaced-out album of electronic rock from the early days of Island Records!

An amazing 8 CD collection of rare rhythm & blues, jump tunes, and gospel-tinged soul from the Nashville independent scene of the 40s and 50s! Long, LONG before "Music City USA" was churning product the way it does today, Nashville had a true working class ethic along with the ... CD (Soul)

Left Alone
Bethlehem, 1959. New Copy
CD ... Around July 29, 2014 (delayed)
A beautiful album by Mal Waldron – recorded in 1960, after the passing of Billie Holiday, and a very loving tribute by Waldron, who was her accompanist for a number of years. The set moves way past the usual "Holiday songbook" mode, and features instead a dark batch of tracks, two ... CD (Jazz)

Duke Ellington Presents
Bethlehem, 1956. New Copy
CD ... Around July 29, 2014 (delayed)
An excellent and oft-overlooked 50s session from Duke – recorded in Chicago as a one-off for the Bethlehem label, and done with a lush, rich sound that's really tremendous! The group's nicely restrained and very moody – playing here in a mellow late nite mode that offers a good focus ... CD (Jazz)

Historically Speaking
Bethlehem, 1956. New Copy
CD ... Around July 29, 2014 (delayed)
The album's a bit less "historical" than you might guess from the title – at least at the time it was issued in the mid 50s! The material is from Chicago sessions recorded in 1956 – unusual non-Columbia material for the period, featuring the Ellington group working in a ... CD (Jazz)

Fantasy/OJC, 1958. New Copy (reissue)
LP ... Late July, 2014
A killer record from the late 50s – and one that hints at all the sides Stan Getz would take in later years – his bossa sessions, his vibes quartet with Gary Burton, and the playful lyricism of his recordings with Chick Corea! The set was recorded in San Francisco, when Stan had that ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz)

Standard Coltrane
Prestige/OJC, 1958. New Copy (reissue)
LP ... Around July 29, 2014 (delayed)
The title may say "standard", but with Coltrane at the helm, the record is anything but! Sure, the tunes are all familiar ones, but the presentation here is a far cry from mainstream piano jazz of the 50s – as John's working in a group with the Red Garland trio for rhythm, as well ...

Motown/Big Break (UK), 1978. New Copy

An overlooked groover from late 70s Motown – served up on a record that might look more like a heavy metal outing, but which is tight clubby soul all the way through! Platinum Hook are a bit in the funky territory of early Commodores – save for the fact that they've got one female ... CD (Soul)

Motown/Big Break (UK), 1975. New Copy
CD ... Around August 4, 2014
An early effort for a then young Stephanie Mills. The set here's produced by Burt Bacharach and Hal David, so it would appear she was being groomed to be the next Dionne Warwick, and though she acquits herself quite well in their lush pop-soul settings, it wouldn't be until years later that she'd ...

Decca/Esoteric (UK), 1979. New Copy
CD ... Around August 4, 2014
A bit later than classic vintage for the UK jazz-rock scene – but a set that's right up there with the best of the early years, thanks to a flurry of keyboards from the great Neil Ardley! Neil's keys have more of a 70s feel than some of the 60s elements used before – heavy on Arp ... CD (Jazz)

One of Lee Hazlewood's little masterpieces from the late 60s. Filled with dry sardonic songs, and recorded in Paris with a team of LA guys that included Hal Blaine and Don Randi, the only way we might think of describing this if you hadn't already heard any of Hazlewood's work was to imagine a ...
