Principal Edwards Magic TheatreWorks 1969 to 1971 – Albums, Demos, BBC Sessions, & Live Recordings (3CD set) ... CD
Dandelion/Cherry Red (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 3 CDs ... $16.99
A triple header of music from this legendary group – two albums, and a bonus disc of rare material too! First up is the group's self-titled set – one that also goes under the name of Soundtrack – a record that's a bit folksy, a bit psychedelic, and certainly trippy and theatrical enough to get the attention of even the most jaded popster in the 60s – Principal Edwards Magic Theatre were a completely unique group who had the extra benefit of strong early support from legendary BBC DJ John Peel, who produced the album for his own Dandelion label! There's a sound here that's eerie and almost ancient at times – that post-hippie sensitivity to the past, often expressed here with folksy instrumentation and poetic themes, but never in a mode that's too dippy or silly. At some level, a few of these tunes have the same fragile folksy mode as the Bridget St John records on Dandelion – but overall, the sound is much looser, freer, and more collaborative. Titles include "Enigmatic Insomniac Machine", "Third Sonnet To Sundry Notes Of Music", "To A Broken Guitar", and "Death of Don Quixote". Next is The Asmoto Running Band – the second album from Principal Edwards Magic Theatre – and arguably even better than the first, thanks to some really focused production from Nick Mason! The sound here has more of the building elements of psychedelia you'd expect from Mason's history with Pink Floyd – and a bit less of the flowery looseness of Principal Edwards' debut – and the new focus is a really welcome addition, as it helps the group find a new level of power in their music they might never have attained! There's still plenty of folksy instrumentation and trippy themes in the tunes – but the guitars are more electric, the studio tricks more dynamic, and the overall record is a much more pleasing bit of ear candy that stands up well to the test of time. Titles include "Freef", "Total Glycerol Esther", "Mc Alpine's Dream", and "Asmoto Running Band". CD 3 features a huge amount of unreleased material – including some BBC Top Gear sessions, some Live At Hampstead tracks, and demos – plus the bonus tracks "Lament For The Earth" and "Ballad Of The Big Girl Now & The Mere Boy".

Moody magic from the great John Carpenter – title themes to two of his famous films, presented in great new versions by John himself!

✨✧ Nazz/Woody's Truck StopNazz From Philadelphia/1966 Demos ... CD
Airmail (Japan), Mid/Late 60s. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Demos and alternate versions of early gems by Nazz – including a bonus disc of demos by the pre Nazz group Woody's Truck Stop featuring Todd Rundgren! The crunching pre-power pop of Nazz isn't as legendary with the general public as it should be – but if you're down with the Nazz this CD is a fine companion piece to the early LPs. A number of the tunes from Nazz's first 2 LP sare on board here in primitive, but effective versions – featured on disc one Nazz From Philadelphia – with the tracks "Hello It's Me", "Crowded", "Lemming Song", "Kicks" (long version), "Some People", "Open My Eyes", "Forget All About It", "Only One Winner", "Magic Me", "Gonna Cry Today" and more. Disc 2 features a handful of 1966 demos by Woody's Truck Stop featuring Todd Rundgren – including "That's Right, You're Wrong", "Why Is It Me", "The Times Have Changed", "She Must Be Blind" and "Rock Me Baby". CD

✨✧ James White & The BlacksSax Maniac ... CD
Infinite Zero/American, 1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

VariousSushi 4004 – The Return Of Spectacular Japanese Clubpop ... CD
Bungalow (Germany), 1998. Used ... $0.99
Magic pop from the Japanese scene – a sweet collection of mid 90s numbers with a wonderfully playful approach! The set contains some of our favorite tunes from this rich era of Japanese grooves – loads of great numbers that draw heavily on 60s mod, soundtrack, and bossa themes – but which take those inspirations and fuse them into a whole new kind of sound! Future electronic pop with a globally sunny edge – and a nice set of 16 tracks that includes "Yukarin Disco" by Yukari Fresh, "Bowlers In Space" by Midnight Bowlers, "You Are My Music" by Hi Posi, "S'Il Vous Plait" by Fantastic Plastic Machine, "Alcohol" by Kahimi Karie, "2300 Hawaii" by Yoshinori Sunahara, "Drive Music" by Qypthone, "Tragedy Of The Softrocker" by Neil & Iraiza, and "Hello Baby" by Sweet Robots Against The Machine.
