JBL, 1973. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
70s geekazoid hi-fi culture at it's finest! The folks at JBL put together this 2LP set as sort of a "bible" of a 70's understanding of hi-fi – and it's a weird mix of documentary discussion, speaker demonstration, and rock tracks by the likes of Alex Harvey and Hoyt Axton. Nutty, and chock full of open drum breaks! (Now Sound, Rock) LP, Vinyl record album

African Head ChargeEnvironmental Studies (with download) ... LP
On-U Sound (UK), 1982. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 19.98
Brilliant sounds from the On-U side of the universe – one of those key records that forever helped establish the production talents of Adrian Sherwood – and the unique blend of music he had to offer! The group here are a key part of the music – their blend of exotic percussion, melodica, guitar, and other sonic elements – but the record also features interesting contributions from post-punk/avant figures Steve Beresford and Nick Plytas, who come together in Sherwood's sonic blend with a beautiful mix of dark sounds, global elements, and lots of dubby echo! Titles include "Beriberi", "Snakeskin Tracksuit", "High Protein Snack", and "Breeding Space". (Reggae, Rock) LP, Vinyl record album

Parlophone, Late 90s/2016. New Copy ... $14.99
Excellent moody. ethereal stuff from the groovy French combo. On these 4 tracks, they wear all of their influences on their sleeve – from Bacharach, to Morricone, to Mancini (in his 70's electric period) – but who cares? This stuff is great, beautifully packaged, and like finding some of the best tracks from a groovy 70's soundtrack on one short EP! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Steve AlaimoTwist With Steve Alaimo ... LP
Checker, Early 60s. Very Good- ... $11.99
Surprisingly great work from Steve Alaimo – hardly just the album of simple twist covers that you might expect, although there's definitely a twisting vibe to the record too! Like some of the better twist-related projects of the early 60s – particularly those from soul and R&B sources – this one's got a very gritty groove at the bottom, which comes from lots of hard-snapping rhythms mixed with quick-stepping guitar – plus some other instrumentation that brings a surprisingly gritty undercurrent to Alaimo's music. If you ever thought he was just a simple pop singer, check out this album for a whole new sound – filled with tasty groovers that include "Good Good Lovin", "Do The Mashed Potatoes", "Lucille", "I've Got It", "Boppin The Blues", "Do The Hully Gully", "Twist All Nights", and more great grooves from the early 60s Miami scene!

Davie Allan & The ArrowsDevil's Rumble – Anthology 1964 – 1968 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Sundazed, 1960s. New Copy 2LPGatefold ... $34.99 36.99
Freaky fuzzed out madness – and a much-needed look at the work of Davie Allan & The Arrows – kings of the 60s biker soundtrack! Davie first started out with sort of a Ventures-esque approach – jamming fast and hard in a surf-inspired guitar instrumental mode – but as his career went on, he really fuzzed things up a lot, and started going for a trippier groove that was perfect for the cheapo exploitation films coming out of the AIP studios at the time. Allan's work appeared in films like The Wild Angels, Devil's Angels, Mondo Hollywood, Born Losers, The Glory Stompers, and The Hellcats – and this sweet little set brings together some of the best of those tunes, along with a really full set of notes that finally tells the story behind this mysterious group! All tracks are instrumentals, with lots of heavy bass and percussion – and titles include "King Fuzz", "Devil's Rumble", "Another Cycle In Detroit", "Glory Stompers", "Cycle Delic", "Blue Rides Again", "Invasion", "Shape Of Things To Come", "Hellcats", "Born Loser's Theme", and "Moonfire".

Davie Allan & The Arrows/The Hands Of TimeWild Angels – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Tower, Late 60s. Very Good- ... $4.99
Classic kitschy biker material from Davie Allan and The Arrows – one of the best-ever groups to play on schlocky soundtracks during the 60s! There's lots of guitar and lots of fuzz – and guessing from the photos of the movie, the music was the best thing about it! Toddler Mike Curb put the whole thing together – but the vibe is much more like some of Allan's excellent guitar instrumental albums of the time – apart from the few more standard rock band tracks you'd find in Curb's other productions from the period. Most of the album's instrumental Arrows work – and tracks include "The Chase", "Bongo Party", "Blues Theme", "Theme From Wild Angels", and "The Unknown Rider" – plus the vocal cuts "Theme From The Wild Angels" by The Visitors and "Midnight Rider" by The Hands Of Time.

Johnnie AllanPromised Land – South Louisiana Swamp Pop Gold ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Wonderful work from Johnnie Allan – and tracks that definitely live up to the "swamp" promise in the title! The vibe here starts with 50s southern rock – a bit of twang from rockabilly and country – but there's also a heavy New Orleans influence in the rhythms that makes things really unique – a rolling way of hitting the groove that changes up the music from styles you might normally know! And at points, some other Louisiana elements creep into the mix, and really come out sounding great – a very cool blend of styles that only gets stronger in the later years. The set features a wealth of recordings for the Jin and Viking labels, plus detailed notes as well – and titles include "Little Fat Man", "South To Lousiana", "The Promised Land", "Let's Do It", "Your Picture", "What'Cha Do", "Cajun Man", "Nights Of Misery", "Secret Of Love", "Graduation Night", "I Cried", and "Somewhere On Skid Row".

Amon Duul IIMade In Germany ... LP
Atco, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $15.99
A big international record from Amon Duul – and for good reason, too – as the set's filled with catchy little tracks that have this really cool blend of prog and glam! The style's almost like Roxy Music at points – with the vocals all compressed in the guitars, and this sinister vibe in the instrumentation – played by a group who clearly know how to stretch out more, but instead pack a lot of experimentation into shorter, groovier space. The vocals are in English, but accented – which gives them a further offbeat vibe – and titles include "The King's Chocolate Waltz", "Emigrant Son", "La Krautoma", "Metropolis", "Gala Gnome", and "Mr Kraut's Jinx".

Keren AnnYou're Gonna Get Love (deluxe edition) ... CD
Universal (France), 2016. New Copy ... $19.99
Wonderful work from Keren Ann – a French singer we first fell in love with on her albums done with producer Benjamin Biolay – working here with a different talent at the helm, but a sound that's equally sublime! Keren's also making a big step towards a global market here, too – continuing her trend of singing in English, which is the case throughout the album – which really helps get her captivating tunes and amazing sound to a larger market on this side of the Atlantic – all without losing the breathy charm of her previous French language vocals. The tunes have this moody vibe, almost in a hip early 70s singer/songwriter mode – and backing instrumentation that really follows suit. Titles include "Again & Again", "you Knew Me Then", "Bring Back", "The Separated Twin", "You Have It All To Lose", and "The River That Swallows All The Rivers". (French, Rock) CD

AntenaCamino Del Sol ... LP
Numero, Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $21.99 22.99
Bebel Gilberto eat your heart out – Antena explored the same electric-bossa territory you did, nearly 20 years before your first big record! The group were a short-lived French outfit who were one of the shining jewels in the crown of the lovely label Les Disques Du Crepuscule during the early 80s – and were a real breath of fresh air in the post-punk years with their light and jazzy approach to the groove. As you'll hear in this set, Antena's style borrows a lot from the bossa, but also throws in some wonderful poppish touches – including jangly guitars recorded in a similar mode to some of the other French/European indie groups of the time, and a slight darkness in production that almost gives a Martin Hannett-like undercurrent to the whole set. The group's album Camino Del Sol has been lovingly reissued with a great set of notes, as well as a series of bonus tracks from an additional ep – making for a beautiful 14 track package that will really help you rediscover this nearly-lost group! Titles include "Sissexa", "To Climb The Cliff", "Camino Del Sol", "Bye Bye Papaye", "Noelle A Hawaii", "The Boy From Ipanema", "Seaside Weekend", "Frantz", and "Ingenuous". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ ArenaArena (180 gram pressing) (2016 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Crystal Clear/Roundtable (Australia), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 31.99
A heady set of jazz from the Australian scene of the 70s – a bit funky jazz, a bit harder jamming – and a record that's got a lot more edge than its contemporaries from the European scene! Ted White plays tremendous flute and alto sax here – the latter with a sharply spiritual energy that's quite unexpected, and which gives the record a lot more soul than the usual prog-influenced fusion date of the time – a quality that's even quite different than some of the other Australian jazz material of the 70s – which, when electrified, didn't always hold onto the sharpness of its acoustic properties. Keyboards are from Peter Jones, who's nicely restrained, but makes some great contributions – and the rest of the group features Charlie Gould on guitar, Bob Arrowsmith on bass, and Graham Morgan on percussion and drums. Titles include "Turkish Defunked", "Keith's Mood", "Scrichell Cat", "Journey In Three's", "Scope", "Duke", and "The Long One". (Jazz, Rock) LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ginny ArnellMeet Ginny Arnell (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
MGM/Poker (UK), 1964. New Copy ... $5.99 13.99
Dreamy 60s pop from Ginny Arnell – a sweet-voiced singer working in a very echoey space! There's a nicely weepy quality to Ginny's music – not in a way that's overly emotive, but which comes from the odd mix of guitar lines, bubbling bass, and heavy echo used to record the music – all with qualities that start feeling sad long before Arnell even sings a word of the lyrics – and which is almost a female equivalent to the best blue modes of Bobby Vinton's work of the same time! Arrangements are by a variety of talents – including Bill McElhieny, Al Gorgoni, and Ray Stevens – but there's a nicely unified feel to the set, thanks to the strong production on the album from Jim Vienneau – clearly an under-acknowledged genius of 60s pop. Titles include "Dumbhead", "I Wish I Knew What Dress To Wear", "I'm So Afraid Of Loving You", "He's My Little Devil", "This Is Mine", "You Pulled A Fast One", "I Don't Want You This Way", and "This Is Mine". CD features 6 bonus tracks too – including "I'm Getting Mad", "Bill Why", "I'm Crying Too", "Trouble's Back In Town", and "Just Like A Boy". (Vocalists, Rock) CD

Maki AsakawaMaki Asakawa ... LP
Honest Jons (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $23.99
Haunting music from Japanese singer Maki Asakawa – every bit as smoky and soulful as you might guess from her image on the cover! These tracks are mostly sung in Japanese, but draw a very strong inspiration from American torch sounds of the 40s and 50s – a moody, late nite approach that's got a very universal appeal, even if you can't understand the language – and which is filled with an undeniable sense of melancholy right from the first note! The style is partly jazz, but also moves into some groovier modes of the period too – traces of psych at some points, mod European-styled arrangements at others, and even a few funky currents that come off surprisingly well. The package is wonderful – a great introduction to Maki's most classic music, featuring a well-chosen array of tracks, and nice liner notes by Alan Cummings. Titles include "Blue Spirit Blues", "Govinda", "Nemuru No Ga Kowai", "Uramado", "Kamome", "Gogo", "Hikkoshi", "Konna Funi Sugite Iku No Nara", "Yuki Ga Furu", and "Zenkamono Na Christmas".

Kevin AyersShooting At The Moon ... CD
Harvest/Water, 1970. Used ... $14.99
A wonderful little record – one that's filled with subtle charms and surprising moments of beauty – played by an intimate group of musicians who include Lol Coxhill, David Bedford, and Mike Oldfield! In a way, the record's a bit of a precursor for some of the experiments to come from Coxhill and Bedford – because the set blends together bits of rock, jazz, and other musics – all with a careful sense of production that filters the best elements together nicely, the focuses them into some extremely compelling tunes. Ayers sings on most numbers, but the instrumental side of the album almost gets greater focus – and titles include "May I", "Pisser Dans Un Violon", "The Oyster & The Flying Fish", "Shooting At The Moon", "Red Green & You Blue", "Underwater", and "Lunatics Lament".

Kevin Ayers, Brian Eno, John Cale, Nico & othersJune 1, 1974 ... LP
Island, 1974. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A British art rock jam session, more or less, pulled together by Soft Machine bassist Kevin Ayers, who recruited Eno, John Cale and Nico, former bandmate Robert Wyatt, the enigmatic Rabbit (John Bundrick) on keyboards – more well known for his work with the Who – plus Mike Oldfield on guitar and a number of other guests and co-conspirators. A nice document of the scene a the time, with concise performances and a much tighter feel than you might imagine given the circumstances of the recording. 9 numbers in all, including "Driving Me Backwards", "Baby's On Fire", "Heartbreak Hotel", "The End", "May I?", "Shouting IN A Bucket Blues", "Stranger In Blue Suede Shoes", "Everybody's Sometime And Some People's All The Time Blues" and "Two Goes Into Four".

BachsOut Of The Bachs (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Time Lag Records/Out-Sider (Spain), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99
Raw sounds from the US underground, circa 1968 – by a group who clearly grew in the garage, but sprung forth with a whole range of new ideas too! Sometimes the Bachs can have this bite that's almost pre-punk, but other moments have this warmly harmonic feel that's quite a surprise – still delivered with a nice edge, given the indie production of the set – which definitely lives up to the spirit of the album's original print run of only 150 copies! All songs are originals, and surprisingly well-written at times – with these dark lyrical turns that are a great foil for the twin lead vocals – almost with the moody feel of Syd Barrett on the shorter, spookier early Pink Floyd tunes, but a lot rougher. Titles include Free Fall", "Answer To Yesterday", "Minister To A Mind Diseased", "Show Me That You Want To Go Home", "I'm A Little Boy", and "Tables Of Grass Fields". LP, Vinyl record album

Selda BagcanSelda (UK pressing) ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
Funky breaks and fuzzy guitars – one of the most amazing albums to come out of the Turkish scene of the 70s – and one with a sound that really defies categorization! Although the sweet image of a girl and guitar on the cover might make you think the record's a folk set, the overall production is heavily electric – filled with fuzzed-up touches on the guitars, and usually supported by some funky drumming that gives most of the record a cool Eastern break sort of feel! Lyrics aren't in English, but they're oddly compelling even if you don't know what they mean – as Selda's voice has a weird other-wordly quality, and comes off with the same tripped-out qualities as the music! Titles include "Ince Ince", "Nasirli Eller", "Mehmet Emmi", "Dost Uyan", "Gitme", "Kizil Dere", "Yaz Gazeteci Yaz", and "Meydan Sizindir". LP features 2 bonus tracks – but it's not like you've got the original album, and needed those as an incentive to buy the reissue! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ BandRock Of Ages – The Band In Concert ... LP
Capitol, 1972. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $19.99
The Band's epic double live album from '72, when they were at their peak – arguably a more exciting listening experience than even their best studio albums, which they always (wisely) considered a different universe then the live stage. Ever ambitious, The Band commissioned Allen Toussaint, one of their heroes to compose some horn arrangements, which indeed sound great – and the band is in such great form here – they're an unbelievably tight unit, but it never sounds slick or manicured. Perfection! Includes "Don't Do It", "King Harvest", "Caledonia Mission", "Get Up Jake", "Stage Fright", "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down", "This Wheel's On Fire", "The Weight", "Life Is A Carnival" and more.

Pierre BarouhCa Va, Ca Vient ... LP
Saravah (France), 1971. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $29.99
Genius early work from Pierre Barouh – the artist best known for his contribution to the film A Man & A Woman, but also the owner of the legendary Saravah Records label – one of the grooviest imprints around! The set is a real move forward from Barouh's earlier material, which was a bit straighter – although still pretty hip – and this time around, he's bringing in a wide range of elements – Brazilian bits, folksy touches, and more – all served up with an approach that's as uniquely personal as work by other Saravah artists, like Brigitte Fontaine or Areski! Barouh's a brilliant writer and singer, and his work is a lost link in a tradition that spans Caetano Veloso, Leonard Cohen, Serge Gainsbourg, and others – crucially overlooked on this side of the Atlantic, and extremely important to us over the years. Titles include "De L'Amour A L'Amour", "Le Courage D'Aimer", "80 AB", "La Foret", "Le Petit Cheval De Bois", "Le Petit Cine", and "Paris Wellington". (French, Rock) LP, Vinyl record album
(Japanese pressing – non-gatefold, but with obi.)
