Marc BennoMinnows ... CD
A&M (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $21.99
A wonderful mix of subtle soul and down home rock – the kind of rare magic that could often happen best in the hands of A&M during the early 70s! Marc Benno's stepping out a bit here from his debut – working with a larger lineup that includes Bobby Womack and Jesse Davis on guitars, and backing vocals from the trio of Rita Coolidge, Clydie King, and Venetta Fields – as well as a bit of accordion from the legendary Nick DeCaro! The expanded lineup doesn't hurt the record at all, though – because Benno's still very much at the forefront vocally and in the lyrics of his wonderful tunes – weaving a way between different styles of the time, and marking a space that should have made him a much bigger artist at the time. But perhaps that's the real charm here – a subtle genius that's bubbled under for years, made all the richer by its under-discovery! Titles include "Back Down Home", "Stone Cottage", "Franny", "Speak Your Mind", "Good Times", "Baby I Love You", and "Don't Let The Sun Go Down". CD

David BowieAladdin Sane – 30th Anniversary 2CD Edition ... CD
EMI, 1973. Used 2CD ... $24.99
An incredible version of one of our favorite David Bowie albums ever! Aladdin Sane was a real turning point for Bowie – recorded on the heels of the tremendously popular Ziggy Stardust album, but really pushing the boundaries past the more straight-ahead rock and glam of that record. Instead of just sitting on his laurels, Bowie tripped out into a wilder, weirder world with this one – mixing together elements of some of the baroque arrangements of early records, with the meaner leaner sound of the 70s – populating the songs with freaks, weirdos, and odd characters that gave the whole thing a really creepy edge. The whole thing's an oft-overlooked gem that, to us, is truly one of Bowie's most magical moments – and it's finally given its due here, in a beautiful 2CD package that features a whole disc worth of bonus material, plus a hard book-like cover, and a big booklet of goodies! Original titles include "Drive In Saturday", "Panic In Detroit", "Aladdin Sane", "Watch That Man", "The Jean Genie", "The Prettiest Star", "Time", and "Lady Grinning Soul" – and bonus tracks include "John I'm Only Dancing (sax version)", "Time (single edit)", "All The Young Dudes", and live recordings of "Drive In Saturday", "Life On Mars", "John I'm Only Dancing", and "Jean Genie".

Ernan RochLa Onda Pesada De Ernan Roch Con Las Voces Frescas ... CD
Discos Mariposa (Argentina), 1971. Used ... $5.99
A bit folksy, a bit psychedelic – and a classic bit of South American rock from Ernan Roch – a Mexican singer who's probably best known for this rare album from Argentina! Ernan sings in English throughout – often in a mode that mixes bluesy phrasings with a raspier folk style – all wrapped up in backings that mix acoustic and electric guitars, heavy on dark-edged phrasings that really give the record a spooky feel – one that's almost in a folk funk style at times! Production is simple, but somehow heavenly – floating with a brilliance that seems to come from very few elements, buoyed up by one of those rare perfect moments of studio magic. Titles include "The Train", "Sitting On The Side Of The Ocean", "I Found All", "I Can't", "Round Round", "Gonna Make It", and "Cause Of Love". CD

VariousGolden State Psychedelia ... CD
Big Beat (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $14.99
San Francisco is well-known as ground zero for the Summer Of Love – and the city gave us plenty of big bands that helped push the new sounds of the 60s firmly into the rock mainstream – but at the same time, the city also housed plenty of lesser-known acts and really experimental groups who were making some amazing sounds that never fully got their due! This set completely corrects that lack – by digging deep into the SF scene of the late 60s, and coming up with handfuls of fuzzy nuggets that show us that there's still plenty to discover from this ultra-rich moment in music – a time when there was so much greatness going down, even a collection like this only scratches the surface. And yet, that scratch is one hell of a treat – as the whole thing's filled with lots of unissued tracks from back in the day, rare singles, and lots more – all originally produced at Golden State Recorders, and documented here in some very well-done notes. Titles include "Blow Up" by The Goody Box, "Meditorium" by The Carnival, "Start Seeing" by The Short Yellow, "Sunday At The Lotus Parlor" by The Gants, "Chasing Rainbows" by The Bristol Boxkite, "Wet Chant" by The Immediate Family, "Daddy's Zoo" by The Tow Away Zone, "Black Diamonds" by Ticket Agents, "Speed" by Celestial Hysteria, "F*ck For Peace" by Magician, "Don't Worry Me" by The Seventh Dawn, and "My Kind Of People" by Just Slightly Richer.
