Igor WakhevitchLes Fous D'Or (180 gram clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
Pathe/Fauni Gena (Spain), 1975. Sealed (reissue)... $19.99
Really dark sounds from the enigmatic Igor Wakhevitch – even darker than his previous albums, and that's saying a lot, given the nature of those sets! This one was done in collaboration with American dancer Carolyn Carlson – but given the moody, offbeat quality of the sounds on the disc, we're damned if we can figure out how anyone could physically interact with the music! Some passages are very abstract and electronic – while others seem to use atonal acoustic instruments, but with a vibe that's still quite electric – and even the few female vocal passages come across with a sharp, striking quality – a bit like Cathy Berberian with Berio. Titles include "Eve Speaks", "Henry The Fool Of The Doll", "Ritual Of The Master Of The Doll", "Arrival Of The Magic Doll", and "Twilight & Call Of The Ascending Spirit". LP, Vinyl record album

James White & The BlacksSax Maniac ... LP
Animal, 1982. Very Good+ ... $18.99
It's the early 80s and James Chance is still at it, peddling a no wave post punk groove that hews a little closer to the rhythmic side of things, but still with a refreshingly abrasive approach. Not as overtly funky as the Kid Creole remixes that ended up on the Ze 12"s, but still with a nice groove underneath the clamor that's keeping you awake. 7 tracks: "Irresistible Impulse", "That Old Black Magic", "Disco Jaded", "Money To Burn", "Sax Maniac", "Sax Machine" and "The Twitch".

✨✧ Margie SingletonPledging My Love – Juke Box Pearls ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sweet girl pop from the early 60s – a treasure trove of work from the under-discovered Margie Singleton! If Margie's last name seems familiar, that's no coincidence – as the cuts here were produced by Shelby Singleton, later of SSS International fame – recorded in Nashville in a unique approach to female pop at the time! The music's definitely a bit country, but not entirely so – as Margie's got this cool crossover vibe, of the sort we can always find in Shelby's music – so that she also echoes styles from the west coast scene of the period, but always tinged with a heartbreaking quality that's pure Tennessee! The tracks here originally appeared as early 60s singles on Mercury, and the package does a great job of bringing them together with all the original session information – as well as lots of notes on her short career. CD features 30 tracks in all – including "Toss A Pebble In The Water", "How Lonely She Must Be", "Chained To A Promise", "Living In A Danger Zone", "Magic Star", "Don't Be Good To Me", "The Cypress Tree", "No Thanks I Just Had One", and "Your Old Love Letters".
