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)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Cinedelic (Italy), 1973. New Copy (reissue)
Fuzzy funk from the Italian scene of the early 70s – a really landmark record that ties together all the best elements happening in the soundtrack, sound library, and psych scene at the time!

A killer overview of the RCA years of Zulema Cusseaux – a heck of a great singer, and one who worked with some excellent styles during her 70s years in soul! Zulema's got a slightly righteous approach to her music – a style schooled in the deep soul of her Floria roots, but focused on ... CD (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Ace (UK), Early 50s. New Copy

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
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
Flying Dutchman/BGP, 1971. New Copy
Gil Scott-Heron's first album – and his angriest! Unlike some of Gil's other albums – which have a sweet jazzy vibe and a mix of mellow soul styles – this one's a lot rawer, and features Gil rapping loud over very heavy percussion backing. All the work is his own, and the album's ... CD (Soul)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
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
Ork/Numero, Mid/Late 70s. New Copy 16 X 7"
A beautifully done box set featuring all the singles released by NYC indie Ork Records from 1975-1979 – a little known, but vitally important early resource for punk, post punk, art rock, no wave and power pop – a real precursor for the next couple decades of underground/indie rock!

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Resonance, 1964/1965. New Copy
A very cool, very limited 10" album release of early material by the great Larry Young – mid 60s sessions from Paris that predate his more famous albums on Blue Note!

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)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Afro Blue
Smoke Sessions, 2015. New Copy
The great Harold Mabern kicks it hard with a key core group – then finds a way to open up with some surprise guest artists as well – including singers Gregory Porter, Kurt Elling, Jane Monheit, and Norah Jones! The core of the album features Mabern's piano rocketing out with rhythm ... CD (Jazz)

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)

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!
