Tremendous new arrivals!


Universal (France), 1966. 5CD
A dream come true – a special 5CD box set, based around one of our favorite soundtracks ever – with a huge amount of added music! The core score is presented on CDs 1 and 2 – fantastic music from the film Les Demoiselles De Rochefort (aka Young Girls Of Rochefort) – a jazzy ... CD (Soundtracks CD)
Any Other Way
Numero, Late 60s. 2CD
Fantastic sounds from Jackie Shane – a Canadian soul singer who's achieved a bit of recent fame, due to her legacy as an underground trans figure – but an artist who'd already be a winner, even without such a fascinating back story! Fortunately, both sides of Jackie's life are included ... CD (Soul CD)
Saturn/Corbett vs. Dempsey, 1972.
One of Sun Ra's greatest albums of the 70s – recording during the same sessions that yielded the famous Space Is The Place record for Blue Thumb, and done with a very similar feel – an expansive configuration of the Arkestra in peak form! The range of expression is really incredible ... CD (Jazz CD)
Fire EP
Blue Erro Soul, 2017.
Elemental genius from Eric Roberson – an artist who's already touched on Earth and Wind with previous records, but who's really on fire with this sweet little set! As with the others in the series, the album's an EP – but the 8 tracks here are even deeper than most longer albums you'd ... CD (Neo Soul CD)
Chariot Rising
Esoteric (UK), 1967.
An amazing step sideways for London's Zoot Money – a move from mod to psych, with a trippy quality that's quite different from his jazzy sound a few years before! The group's got legendary fame – not just for the shift in styles by Zoot, but also for the fact that it features key work ... CD (Rock CD)
Spirit Man
RCA/Nature Sounds, 1975. (reissue)
Massively funky work from the mighty Weldon Irvine – sublimely cosmic and filled with soul throughout! The vibe here is a bit more focused than on some of Weldon's earlier albums – a moody blend of electric keys, heavy percussion, and some slight bits of jazzy solo work by trumpeters ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)
Dialogue
Aaron Abernathy, 2017.
Aaron Abernathy really grabbed us with his debut – and on this second set, he's maybe even tighter and more his own self than before – moving past the guests who helped draw attention to the previous record, and really standing strongly in the spotlight on his own! Aaron composed, ... CD (Neo Soul CD)
Like A Ship (Without A Sail)
Mt Zion/Numero, 1971. (reissue)
A soul record we'd put up there with some of our favorites produced in Chicago during the early 70s – a gospel album from Pastor TL Barrett, but one that's gone on to legendary status among funk and soul collectors over the years! Barrett works here with his Youth For Christ Choir, of Mt. ... LP, Vinyl record album (Gospel LP)
Cherry Red (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. 7CD
An incredible run of music from a really legendary band – a quintet who were as important to the British folk scene as Fairport Convention – and one who worked with an equally hip sort of vibe! Where that group featured key work from a young Richard Thompson and Sandy Denny, this one ... CD (Rock CD)
Tiger's Milk (UK), Late 60s/1970s.
Peruvian grooves from the heights of the Andes – but music that also resonates strongly with the hipper Latin styles of the South American scene at the time! These aren't the moody pan flute numbers that were popularized abroad in the 60s – the kinds of records that played big with the ... CD (Global Grooves CD)
Way Home
Colemine, 2017.
A fantastic album from this increasingly hip combo – a group who were already pretty darn funky at their start, but who've just kept on moving into really amazing territory over the years! The sound here is maybe the equivalent of the depth and shifts that El Michels brought to the deep funk ... CD (Deep Funk CD)
La La Land, 1981/1982. 2CD
Beautifully chilling music to the second and third Friday The 13th films – all masterfully scored by Harry Manfredini! The sounds here aren't as electric or rockish as some of the other slasher work from the time – and in fact, most of the instrumentation is from acoustic sources, but ... CD (Soundtracks CD)
Today
Atlantic/El (UK), 1972.
A fantastic record from Dudley Moore – an artist that most folks know as an actor, but a hell of a jazz pianist too! Dud only cut a handful of records in his earlier years, and they're all pretty great – but this one may well be our favorite of the bunch, as it really picks up the ... CD (Jazz CD)
Sacred Bones, 2017.
John Carpenter takes his classic film themes, and does them one better – by working here with his Lost Themes Band in some wonderful new versions of these famous tunes! The music is still very heavy on that stark guitar and keyboard style that Carpenter virtually invented in the late 70s ... CD (Soundtracks CD)
Elektra/Run Out Groove, 1970. 2LP Gatefold
Core sounds from the Stooges legendary Funhouse album – raw material from the sessions for the record – presented here on vinyl for the first time ever! Tracks here previously appeared on the 7CD Funhouse box set – issued at the end of the 90s – but this package sifts them ... LP, Vinyl record album (Rock LP)
Andrew's Music, 1970s/Early 80s/2017.
An amazing album – not just for its tribute to the tune "Giant Steps" – but for the great playing of saxophonist Andrew White! In a move that almost makes him like the Pop-O-Pies of the jazz world, White serves up 17 versions of the same tune – an idea might be a bit ... CD (Jazz CD)
Light In The Attic, Late 60s/Early 70s.
A much-needed look at the Japanese rock scene at the start of the 70s – one that was going through as many amazing changes as the world of music in the US and UK, but which has always been far out of reach for most listeners in the English-speaking world! The collection's not super-undergroun ... CD (Rock CD)
Stax Country
Stax/Craft, Mid 70s.
A surprising side of the legendary Stax Records – especially if you only know the Memphis powerhouse as an outlet for funk and soul! There was always a bit of crossover between country and soul – even in the early days, a label like King Records could easily handle both – or a ... CD (Folk/Country CD)
Gingko Press, 2017.
Hip hop started in the streets, then quickly moved to the studio once the music got more sophisticated – then made a further move to the home studio as costs went up and technology got better – almost taking things back to the underground as it opened up lots of new creative freedoms! ... Book (Books Book)
Digitmovies (Italy), 1966.
Beautifully playful music from the great Piero Piccioni – done for a mid 60s film directed by and starring the Italian comedian Alberto Sordi, whose presence on screen is a great match for these sounds! Picconi uses some of his jazzy roots at times – including a cool bit of organ ... CD (Soundtracks CD)
