Rare vinyl new arrivals!


CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Goma Gringa (Brazil), 2016.
A killer collection of contemporary underground sounds from Brazil – not the kind of bigger pop that usually filters over here from the world music market – but instead a range of really well-chosen tracks that beautifully illustrate a new wave of creativity in the city of Sao Paulo! ... CD (Brazil)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Expansion (UK), Late 70s.
A totally great entry in one of our favorite-ever collections of Philly Soul – a series that goes way past the obvious, to uncover the kind of underground gems that made the Philadelphia scene interesting – even when they were turning out hits! Make no mistake, these aren't clunky cuts ... CD (Funky Compilations)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Ariete/BTF (Italy), 1968. (reissue)
A great score for an incredible film! Teorema is a strange and wonderful early film by Pier Paolo Pasolini – and about half of the soundtrack was written by Ennio Morricone, in a mixture of dark, edgey themes, and some more groovy tunes with a great late 60s Italy feel – an early ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soundtracks)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Funky Drive Band
R $ J Recordz & Tapes/Think (Japan), 2011.
These guys may look they they're living at the start of the 80s, but they're actually a contemporary combo – although one with a very old school approach in their music! The Funky Drive Band have a perfect mid 80s style to their music – upbeat funky soul with plenty of keyboards and ... CD (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Expansion (UK), 2016.
A wickedly sharp entry in the Soul Togetherness series – and one that maybe features a bit more contemporary material than before! There's a few older tracks from the modern soul years of the late 70s – but most of the work here is contemporary soul from the global underground – ... CD (Funky Compilations)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Back To Scales To-Night
Barclay/Expansion (UK), 1980.
A great early solo album from Wally Badarou – done before his bigger global records on Island, but at a point when he'd already had great work in the studio, helping out some of the key sessions on the Nassau scene at the end of the 70s! Wally's as much a singer as he is a keyboardist here ... CD (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Musica Amore
General/Cinedelic (Italy), 1972. (reissue)
The music of love from the great Piero Piccioni – served up here in a set that's right up there with his best soundtracks of the early 70s! The sounds come from a wonderful Piccioni array of instrumentation – some heavy Hammond here, a bit of soaring strings there – all set to ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soundtracks)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Sugar Hill/Soul Brother (UK), 1980. (reissue)
The incredibly rare second album from Wood Brass & Steel – the mighty funk group we've loved for years for their landmark debut from the mid 70s! This sophomore set is from a few years later, and has the group honing their groove even more – working with these righteous currents in ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Strut (UK), Late 60s/1970s. 2CD
A double-length look at the music of Pat Thomas – a key figure on the scene in Ghana during the 70s, heard here in a variety of settings and styles! The range of sounds promised in the title definitely rings true – as the music starts with early jazzy highlife, then moves through 70s ... CD (Global Grooves)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Four Flies (Italy), 1960.
A great little soundtrack from that wonderful moment when the Italian cinema was heavy on sounds drawn from jazz and Latin music – served up here by the young Armando Trovajoli, who was in the process of moving from his modern jazz roots into the world of film scores! Much of the music here ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soundtracks)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Rush Hour (Netherlands), Late 70s/Early 80s.
A huge range of funky soul cuts from a very surprising source – the nation of Surinam, which didn't earn its independence until the mid 70s – which then seemed to pave the way for a big wave of wonderful music like this! The cuts often have a groove that's more northern hemisphere club ... CD (Global Grooves)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Chris' Soundtrack Corner (Germany), 1971.
One of the coolest 70s soundtracks from the great Stelvio Cipriani – served up here with a huge amount of bonus tracks too! The music here was scored for a Mario Bava horror film, but it often has a quality that's more lean and lovely overall – that current of sex that we always love ... CD (Soundtracks)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Obnoxius
Quartin/Far Out (UK), 1970.
An incredible treasure of Brazilian music – the only album we've ever seen from Jose Mauro, and one of the few records ever issued on the legendary Quartin label! There's a soaring brilliance here that easily matches the best early 70s work from Milton Nascimento and Edu Lobo – with ... CD (Brazil)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Jugoton/Croatia (Croatia), 1970s/1980s. 6CD
A host of recordings with titles you can't pronounce – but served up with a universally appealing jazz sound, thanks to the mighty vibes of Bosko Petrovic! The musician is one of the coolest players who ever worked behind the Iron Curtain – a jazz vibist in Croatia, but one whose music ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Dome (UK), 2002/2004/2005. 3 CDs
Three great albums from Incognito – served up at a mighty nice price, and with bonus tracks too! Who Needs Love is a gem from over a decade ago – and Jean-Paul "Bluey" Maunick pulled out all the stops on this set – working with a range of vocalists that includes Joy ... CD (Neo Soul)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Carosello/BTF (Italy), 1969. (reissue)
A great little soundtrack from Ennio Morricone – with music that sports vocals both by I Cantori Moderni and Edda Dell'Orso – both of whom are working in prime Mondo Morricone modes! There's a dreamy feel to the best numbers on the set – heard most perfectly in the classic "G ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soundtracks)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Four Flies (Italy), 1959.
One of the jazziest soundtracks we've ever heard from Piero Umiliani – and maybe the best we've heard from his late 50s stretch – thanks to some really well-conceived tunes that stand well on their own away from the film! The music here is awash in strong solos – Umiliani on ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soundtracks)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Proximity
Sunnyside, 2016.
One of the most beautiful records we've ever heard from drummer Andrew Cyrille – a sublime set of duets with tenorist Bill McHenry, who turns out to be a wonderful musical partner! The music has that loose, open, almost melodic feel that Cyrille brought to his percussion – especially ... CD (Jazz)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Now I'm A Man
PMG (Austria), 1976.
A bold title statement from The Funkees – and one that's backed up with plenty of adult funky music as well – that hip blend of dubby soul that really made these guys a standout on the Nigerian scene of the 70s! The style's almost a bit like Cymande – with a head-nodding bassline ... CD (Global Grooves)
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Salt Of The Earth
Sussex/Soul Brother (UK), 1974. (reissue)
The amazing second album from The Soul Searchers – even harder, funkier, and rarer than the first! This one blows away everything else the group have ever done – as the record has an angular approach that has the band taking a lot of weird twists with the grooves, creating these dark ... LP, Vinyl record album (Soul)
