Schema (Italy), 1969. New Copy Gatefold
Very cool, very groovy soundtrack from this Italian film about satanic ritual and demonic possession! The great Piero Umiliani serves up a wide-ranging batch of tracks, from breezy vocal pop numbers (with vocals by Shirley Hammer), to spooky funk instrumentals with a sort of "haunted ...

How Do You Are (Germany), Late 70s. New Copy
Blue-eyed soul, yacht rock, and sweet AOR grooves – all coming together in a surprisingly soulful set! Most of the artists here were found in the rock racks, and not the soul shelves back in the day – but they all drew plenty from the best advances in 70s grooves – particularly ... CD (Funky Compilations)

Dada – Solo & Duo
Chap Chap/Universal (Japan), 1995. New Copy
A pair of percussionists, working here together wonderfully – in a set that has both musicians using the drum kit and other percussion – and Han Bennink picking up a bit of piano as well! We've always loved Bennink's highly melodic approach – a style that seems to get notes out ... CD (Jazz)

Monument
RCA/FTG, 1981. New Copy
The great first album from Beggar & Co – a sweet UK soul trio from the early 80s, and one who grew from the ashes of the equally great Light Of The World! The style here is similar to LOTW's variation on American funk of the time – particularly the tight blend of jazz and funk they ... CD (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Metti Una Sera A Cena
Cinevox (Italy), 1969. New Copy
Quite possibly the greatest Morricone score ever – and one whose dreamy bossa-inflected title theme has been covered a number of times over the years (most recently by the group Balanco!) From the first minutes of the album, you'll instantly recognize the main theme – as it's swells of ... CD (Soundtracks)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy
Mighty sounds from a legendary Detroit soul producer – the great Dave Hamilton, a talent who issued a number of key singles back in the day, but who's left behind an even larger legacy of excellent unreleased work! This collection draws from both sides of that spectrum – and features ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Ekpenyong Abasi
Voodoo Funk (UK), 1975. New Copy Gatefold
Some of the coolest, grooviest work we've ever heard from the Nigerian scene of the 70s – recorded by an artist who was heading a children's program at the time! Make no mistake, though – this is no kiddie music, but instead a wonderfully rich, vibrant collection of material – as ... CD (Global Grooves)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Sounds Of Memphis/Ace (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy
The later years of the Sound Of Memphis studio – cuts from a time when the legendary deep soul powerhouse was trying on some of the newer modes from the end of the 70s! The work here is a real lost slice of Memphis soul – music from a time when the heyday of Stax and Hi Records had ... CD (Funky Compilations)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Set Us Free
Blue Note (Japan), 1971. New Copy
One of the most mindblowing sets ever from organist Reuben Wilson – his last session for Blue Note, and a much more ambitious record than before! The style here is more Cadet Records concept than the usual smaller combo groove of other Wilson sides for Blue Note – as Reuben's organ is ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Two Chaps – Solo & Duo
Chap Chap/Universal (Japan), 1994. New Copy
Two chaps, both of them great – legendary British improviser Evan Parker on tenor and soprano saxophone, working nicely alongside Yoshizawa Motoharu on bass! Although Parker was a player who first made waves early on the British free jazz scene, his work during this 90s stretch may well be ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Rio 65 Trio
Universal (Japan), 1965. New Copy
A brilliant record right from the very first note! This amazing first album by the Rio 65 Trio is a solid gem all the way through – a magical moment in the recording studio, and a record that forever changed the face of bossa! The trio features piano work by jazz legend Dom Salvador – ... CD (Brazil)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Warner/Expansion (UK), 1979. New Copy
A sweet musical fantasy from the great Eugene Record – known by most as one of the driving forces of The Chi-Lites, and the whole Brunswick soul scene as well! By this point in his career, Record's come a long way from his roots in Chicago soul – and works at a level that's much more ... CD (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Picture Of Heath
Xanadu, 1975. New Copy
A brilliant mid 70s album from Jimmy Heath – recorded at a time when he was making some of his greatest strides on record! The album's got a spare, simple quartet format – but Jimmy's working here in a really expansively soulful sound – one that matches that of Clifford Jordan at ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Easterly Winds
Blue Note (Japan), 1967. New Copy
A sublime album by one of our favorite talents in 60s jazz – pianist Jack Wilson, making his second Blue Note appearance here amidst a group of other more likely label players that include Lee Morgan on trumpet, Jackie McLean on alto, and Billy Higgins on drums! Despite the presence of those ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Quartet (Spain), 1975/1978. New Copy
Two sweet 70s Italian soundtracks – one sexy, one scary – both penned by maestro Carlo Savina, and offered up here on a single CD! L'Ingenua starts things off – with a vibe that's every bit as slinky as you might expect from the image on the cover – warm, erotic themes that ... CD (Soundtracks)

Rarer Stamps Vol 1
Outta Sight (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy
Rare work from these two overlooked figures in early soul – both artists who recorded for Motown during the first few years of the label – with a sound that's a lot more raw and hard-edged than their later hits! Barrett Strong was one of the first great voices on the label – a ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Cocktail Mina
Irma (Italy), 2015. New Copy
A lovely little album dedicated to the famous Italian singer Mina – a vocalist with an incredible range, and an artist who made some incredibly groovy work back in the 60s and 70s! The style here isn't just a rehash of Mina's hits – but a reworking of those ideas into some more ... CD (New Grooves)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Moon Rappin'
Blue Note (Japan), 1969. New Copy
An incredible record – the kind of album that no fan of funky jazz should be without! This album is far and away one of the greatest ever cut by Brother Jack McDuff – and it's a baroquely complicated batch of funky jazz cuts that's still light years ahead of any other record! The ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Blue Note, 2015. New Copy
Continuing genius from the great Robert Glasper – a set that has the keyboardist going back to basics, and working in just a trio mode – live in the studio, and with stunning sound! Robert plays acoustic piano, but as with his early years, he's got this fluidity that really makes it ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Light In The Attic, 1960s/1970s/1980s/1990s. New Copy
Wonderful work from one of our favorite singers of all time – an artist with roots in jazz, but one who quickly stepped out into something else entirely – as you'll hear on this beautiful selection of tunes! Karin Krog's been a key figure in the Norwegian jazz scene since the start of ... CD (Vocalists)
