Bruce HaackFarad Bruce Haack – The Electric Voice ... CD
Stones Throw, 1970s/Early 80s. Used ... $6.99
Amazing electric grooves from synth innovator Bruce Haack – whose pioneering use of analog synths and vocoder vocals in the service of great, if far out songcraft was pretty much unrivaled in the 70s and into the early 80s – the period in which this excellent compilation on Stones Throw highlights! Haack's earlier successes were children's music in the 60s, and one of the coolest aspects of his 70s recordings was how that somewhat bright-eyed and innocent sing-song-y approached moved into more surrealist, weirder realms on albums like Electric Lucifer, that album's lesser known, still quite brilliant sequel, and albums like Haackula and Bite. Choice cuts from those albums as well as rare singles are rounded up for Stones Throw's impeccably curated overview. The electric voice and synth errata brings an otherworldly vibe to catchy songs – and Haack's use of the vocoder was followed by so many others who would become household names, from Kraftwerk to Pink Floyd. Amazing stuff! 16 tracks in all: "Electric To Me Turn", "Incantation", "Rain Of Earth", "Ancient Mariner", "Man Kind", "Rita", "Lie Back", "Snow Job"m "The King", "Party Machine" and more.

✨✧ Stark RealityNow ... CD
Stones Throw, 1969. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the most tripped-out albums of funk you'll ever buy – a rare treasure with a very unusual history! The Stark Reality were a cool little combo formed to work on public television in Boston in the late 60s – and the combo featured some heavy guitars, fuzzed-up vibes, and some monster percussion laid out in tight bass and drum rhythms that were years ahead of their time! The group recorded one rare album – ostensibly a children's record, but based around old compositions by Hoagy Carmichael, completely pulled apart, sliced up, overly harmonized, and spat out into wild funky tunes that bear no resemblance to their originals! The original album – Stark Reality Discovers Hoagy Carmichael's Music Shop – has been a holy grail for collectors for years (we once sold a copy for hundreds of dollars!), and the music has only ever really been heard by a few dedicated beatheads that have tracked down rare copies. Now, though, the geniuses at Stones Throw have put out the whole LP, plus bonus material, in one fantastic package that is soon to make the Stark Reality legends amongst funky fans the world over! Mad vibes meet fuzzy guitars meet killer funky beats – and the whole thing's a masterpiece that will never be duplicated again! Tracks include "Too Much Tenderness", "Sunday's Song", "Roller Coaster Ride", "Say Brother", "Rocket Ship", "All You Need To Make Music", "Junkman's Song", and "Thirty Days Hath September".

Rikki Ililonga & Musi O TunyaDark Sunrise (3LP set) ... LP
Now Again, Mid 70s. Very Good+ 3LPs ... $33.99
An amazing set that documents the early years of the Zamrock scene – the funk and psych informed Afro Rock pioneered by vocalist and African guitar legend Rikki Ililonga and his group Musi-O-Tunya in Zambia from 1973 to 1976 – and compiled beautifully in this great set from Now Again/Stones Throw! It's incredible stuff that blends fuzzed out guitar psychedelia, raw rhythms and brass-heavy funky soul. Ililonga's legacy is represented strongly on the record made by the group he founded, Musi-O-Tunya – who work with electric guitar, bass, sax, western and African drums and percussion – as well as the Zambia album, credited to Rikki Illilonga, in which he sings and plays all instruments except trumpet. The set also includes his Sunshine Love album, in which he sings and plays all instruments except bass and drums – and a it's got a rawer, bluesier psych soul approach overall. The LP version of Darkest Light features exact replicas of 3 original LPs: Musi-O-Tunya's Wings Of Africa plus Rikki Ililonga's Sunshine Love and Zambia LPs. 25 tracks on 3LPs, plus a 12 page booklet with liner notes by Eothen Alapatt and an interview of Ililonga by Eothen. Tracks include "Wings Of Africa", "The Sun", "Dark Sunrise", "Walk And Fight", "One Reply", "Take It Light", "Ulemu", "Angel Black", "Sunshine Love", "Lock Mice'Elf Away", "Love Is The Only Way", "The Hole", "Sheebeen Queen", "Zambia", "Hote Fingers", "Stop Dreaming Mr. D", "The Queen Blues", "Se Keep Me Kweek" and more.

VariousBest Of Pied Piper Days Vol 2 ... CD
Sony (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $16.99
Maybe an even cooler set than the first volume in the Pied Piper series – like that one, a wonderful batch of American sunshine pop-styled numbers from the late 60s and early 70s, brought together in tribute to the famous Pied Piper record store in Tokyo – but filled even more obscure, unusual tunes overall – in a way that has us hoping there will be lots more volumes to come! The music here is a bit hard to peg – kind of post-folk, pre-singer/songwriter – sometimes with pop production, but never overwhelmingly so – representing a move towards more sophisticated mainstream modes at the end of the 60s. CD features 24 tracks in all – and titles include "In The Name Of Love" by Estelle Levitt, "With You Girl" by The Arbors, "I'll Close My Eyes" by Gary Williams, "Something Big" by Mark Lindsay, "Never Throw Your Dreams Away" by Joanie Sommers, "Gotta Have Love" by Paul Varisco & The Milestones, "Wild World" by Bobby Scott, "Come On & Be My Love" by Kenny & Yvonne, "So Glad" by Alzo, "It's Alright" by Robey Falk & Bod, "Snow Queen" by The Association, "The Greatest Love" by Billy Joe Royal, "Nobody At All" by The Groop, and "Sunrise Highway" by Peter Anders.
