Excello/KTI (Japan), 1976. New Copy
A beautiful little album from the earliest days of the Ingram empire in soul – recorded long before any of the individual members had gone onto bigger mainstream fame, and done in a way that has lots of righteous indie touches! Sister Barbara sings lead vocals on most of the tracks – ... CD (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Art Yard/Strut (UK), 1973. New Copy
Never-heard music from the legendary Sun Ra Arkesta – and a set that's every bit as great as Ra's self-released albums on Saturn Records in the 70s! The performance is a well-recorded date from France in the early 70s – and the Arkestra are at their richest, most expressive – ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz)

Croydon Municipal (UK), 1950s/1960s. New Copy
Exotica sounds, but with an especially soulful feel – which makes the tracks a perfect choice for this excellent collection! The work is in a special place between exotic instrumentals, teen pop, and deeper soul of the late 50s and early 60s – and most numbers here have that special ... CD (Soul)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Now Again, 1975. New Copy 2 CDs
Wonderfully fuzzy work from Amanaz – one of the trippiest, headiest groups of the Zamrock scene of the 70s! The guitars here are very full and present – not at a hit you over the head jamming label, but with this rich sonic element that has lots of bassy undercurrents – at a ... CD (Global Grooves)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Ace (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
Loads of rare work from the great Clarence Frogman Henry – a New Orleans singer with a really unusual voice – as you might guess from his name! The set includes Henry's big hit "Ain't Got No Home" but then spins out to include a wealth of under-exposed singles from later ... CD (Soul)

Warner/Friday Music, 1970. New Copy

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Big Beat (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy
There was definitely something in the water down in mid-60s Texas – as the scene easily turned out some of the rawest, raunchiest work of the time – the kind of heavy garage and early psych numbers that have driven collectors for decades! This set's got an excellent focus on that might ... CD (Rock)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Ace (UK), 1950s/1960s/1970s. New Copy
Nick Cave is a man of many influences – sounds from so many different styles of music, which he's used to forge into his own uniquely personal style over the years! And Cave's never been secret about the music that moves him, either – and always gives credit where credit's due – ... CD (Rock)

Scratchgod 1 EP
Liquid Amber, 2015. New Copy (pic cover)
Scratch DJ master Ruckazoid's debut EP for DJ Shadow's Liquid Amber label! It's brilliant stuff – next level turntablism by Ruck, who creates an expansive wall of sound on this 3-track EP! "Money" fills side one, starting off a robotic vocal mission statement, but it's certainly a ... 12-inch, Vinyl record (Hip Hop)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 2 CDs
A massive amount of music frrom one of the coolest combos of the 60s – a real rocking powerhouse, and a mighty popular live act at the time! Johnny & The Hurricanes never issued many albums at the time, but this double-sized package really corrects that problem – by bringing ... CD (Rock)

Music Box (France), 1972. New Copy
Two very rare soundtracks from French genius Michel Legrand – back to back on a single CD!

Heavy Latin grooves – served up with plenty of funk, jazz, and soul in the mix – and put together as a collection that's even better than the first volume in this series! DJ Pablo Yglesias seems to get sharper ears each time we tune into one of his projects – and this time around ... CD (Latin)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Cause Of The Sequence
Albore Jazz (Japan), 2015. New Copy
A very cool combo – one that features the trombone of Massimo Morganti, tenor of Barend Middlehof, and piano of Nico Menci – all working together without any other instrumentation at all! The style means that the piano handles as much of the rhythm as it does the melody – making ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
People/Get On Down, 1974. New Copy (reissue)
A killer-diller bit of essential funk – the only full album cut by Maceo with James Brown production! The set's got Maceo coming back strongly into the JB fold, with a fierce array of funky cuts that kick it every bit as hard as the best JBs work of the time. No surprise, the JBs are ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Parlophone, 1976. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)
A seminal collection of work from the earliest years of the London punk scene in the 70s – material by a pre-Clash group that famously featured Joe Strummer, working at a level that definitely prefaces all the greatness to come!

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
BMG/Sanctuary, 1964. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)
Early Kinks in all of their glory – showing a bit more of an R&B influence than in their later years, but still already working with all the wit and imagination that won us over many years ago! The tunes have a surprising roughness, if you're only used to the group from a few years later ... 7-inch, Vinyl record (Rock)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Uuquipleu, 1971. New Copy
A completely lost album from Detroit legend Lyman Woodard – recorded around the same time as his Saturday Night Special classic, and every bit as great! The material is stunning – and easily rises to the top of the pack of the rare few examples of Woodard's genius that were caught on ... CD (Jazz)
