Complete Expressions
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1970. New Copy
A landmark album of electric piano grooves from Hysear Don Walker – the keyboardist on some of Young-Holt Unlimited's best albums! This album's much more in a jazz vein than some of the Young-Holt titles – with Walker playing electric keys on slower funky numbers that burn along at a ... CD (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
MGM/Omni (Australia), 1963/1969. New Copy
Incredible work from the great Dick Hyman – two of his hippest electric albums back to back on a single CD, with great bonus cuts too! First up is Moon Gas – one of the greatest albums that Dick Hyman ever recorded – a mad mix of keyboards that more than lives up to its name and ... CD (Now Sound)

Africa
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
EMI/Abkco, Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)
A very cool early 10" album from The Animals – the group's second in this format, and never originally issued in the US! The group are at their young, gritty best here – with lots of bluesy currents in the music, thanks to Alan Price on Hammond – topped with soulful vocals ... LP, Vinyl record album (Rock)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Vampi Soul (Spain), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A second wonderful look at the world of female pop in Spain – a nation that's not gotten nearly the same sort of global exposure over the years! We've stocked plenty of groovy French pop, in many formats – and even Italian gal pop has gotten lots of play recently – but the ... LP, Vinyl record album (Latin)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Funk Night, 2015. New Copy
We'd love to have a drink with The Great Revivers – as it would finally give us a chance to tell them how much we really love their music! This strong full length debut from the Russian funk combo really pushes past their initial wave of singles – showing the group to not only be as ... LP, Vinyl record album (Deep Funk)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
East Bay Grease/Bump City
Warner/Friday Music, 1970. New Copy
A pair of classics from Tower Of Power – back to back on a single CD! First up is East Bay Grease –one of the first albums from Tower Of Power – and one of the funkiest, too – a set that really has the group working in a loose, spontaneous mode that's totally great – ... CD (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
One Der Ful/Secret Stash, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy
A stunning collection of rare Chicago soul – pulled from the M-Pac label, which was part of the One-Derful family of records – and packed with vintage singles and 10 previously unreleased tracks too! This series is fantastic – the first really deep look at the Chicago underground ... CD (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Your Good Fortune EP
Anti, 2015. New Copy
Just a four-track set from soul legend Mavis Staples – but a record that's got more than enough feeling to beat most full length albums on the market! The four tracks here were all produced by Son Little – and have this unusual approach that mixes acoustic roots with some slight ... CD (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Dual Planet (Australia), 1960s/1970s. New Copy (reissue)
Sounds of now, circa yesterday – a very cool collection of 60s and 70s eletronic work from Eric Siday – presented in these great short sound cues! The tracks are pretty brief, but very cool in that respect – and almost work like little electronic poems, or light whimsical ... LP, Vinyl record album (Sound Library)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Acrobat (UK), 1972. New Copy
A lost live date from the great British tenorist Tubby Hayes – recorded right near the end of his too-short life, but a stone cooker all the way through! The material was recorded live at the Hopbine – but it's different than both the other 1972 album from the venue, or earlier Hopbine ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Lucidity
Jazzland (Norway), 2015. New Copy
The title's a great one, as the album may well be the clearest musical vision we've heard from Atomic so far – a wonderful record that has the group at a level that's slightly more tuneful and straightforward, but all without losing any of their previous edge! There's still some key free ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Good Morning Vietnam 3 – The Phoenix Program
Vendetta Records, 2015. New Copy
The final entry in the Good Morning Vietnam trilogy from veteran underground rhymer/writer MF Grimm and producer Drasar Monumental – perhaps the rawest and hardest hitting of the three! The smart, dexterous rhymes are laced with wartime imagery and backed by thematic samples throughout, ... LP, Vinyl record album (Hip Hop)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Lakeshore, 2013. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Great work from one of the best contemporary soundtrack artists going – Cliff Martinez's score for Drive – done at a level that's got a really classic vibe! And by classic, we mean classic 80s electronic – as Cliff has this spare, moody style that's really wonderful – ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soundtracks)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Rigamaroll
High Note, 2015. New Copy
Tenorist Jerry Bergonzi has a pensive look on the cover here – and that's a really good illustration of the quality of the music – sounds that are maybe more thoughtful and introspective than some of Jerry's other recent albums! The sound builds here in these blocks of longer lines ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 60s. New Copy
Wonderful work from our favorite stretch of music from the legendary Gene Chandler – an artist who started out on Vee Jay Records, but really hit his prime here at Brunswick! Chandler was a key singer in the early years of soul – and some of his first recordings had strong appeal to ... CD (Soul)
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
West End/Octave (Japan), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD
A treasure trove of funky club work from one of the greatest indie labels in New York – disco powerhouse West End, home to a few key hits and lots more lost goodies! A fair bit of those lost tracks are presented here – in a great double-length package that may well be the hippest we've ... CD (Funky Compilations)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
NEW
Tryangle/Drag City, 2015. New Copy
The N.E.W. record from Detroit proto-punk legends Death – whose older music has rightfully been catapulted out of the deep deep underground in recent years, gaining them much deserved widespread recognition – and their first proper new album since 1976 shows that they've still got it! ... CD (Rock)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1972. New Copy
A mindblowing album of electric piano tracks! Don Walker was a funky pianist from Chicago who worked briefly with the Young-Holt Unlimited group – and who cut a rare few albums of his own for the Brunswick label. This second solo album features some excellent Fender Rhodes work by Don ... CD (Soul)
