Lula Cortes & Ze RamalhoPaebiru (special edition – with booklet) ... LP
Solar/Mr Bongo (UK), 1974. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $28.99 39.98
A legendary lost album from Brazilian songwriters/multi-instrumentalists Lula Cortes and Ze Ramalho – recorded in Brazil in the mid 70s – blending avant psychedelia, rugged acoustic rhythms, and an enormous free spirit with delicate melodic touches and lilting jazzy elements! As is the case with the work of the best, most adventurous Brazilian artists of the time, it's a difficult sound to describe. It's a very atmospheric blend – sung and chanted vocals are no more or less important than any of the other elements – which include classical acoustic and fuzzy electric guitar, piano, organ, flute, sax and a range of percussion. It's free and psychedelic, but just reigned in enough to keep it tense and exciting. Pure greatness – hopefully bound to achieve some long overdue recognition! Tracks include "Trilha De Sume", "Culto A Terra", "Bailado Das Muscarias", "Nao Existe Molhado Igua; Ao Pranto", "Raga Dos Raios", "Nas Paredes Da Pedra Encantada", "Regato Da Montanha", Trilha De Sume" and more! New special edition 2 x LP pressing, finished to match the original specifications, now including the 8 page booklet. LP, Vinyl record album

Ze RamalhoZe Ramalho De Paraiba ... CD
Discobertas (Brazil), Mid 70s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $13.99
Vintage live work from this legendary Brazilian rocker – a series of different concerts, all brought together in a very cool 2CD package! The set features material from the shows Atlantida (1973), Um Dia Antes Da Vida (1976), Tres Aboios Diferentes (1974), and Coletiva De Musica Paraibana (1976) – plus one more track from a 1977 show – all with Ze Ramalho on vocals and guitar, working in relatively stripped-down settings with deeply personal inflections! The collection's a great contrast to some of his more produced studio albums – and titles include "O Monte Olimpia", "Avohai", "A Arvore", "Puxa Puxa", "Brejo Do Cruz", "Jacarepagua Blues", "Taxi Lunar", and "Aboio Eletronico".

✨✧ Ze Renato, Jards Macala, Guinga, & Moacyr LuzDobrando A Carioca ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2016. New Copy ... $18.99
A sublime meeting of these four legendary Brazilian talents – singers and musicians we're not used to hearing in each others' company, but who feel here as if they've been working together for a lifetime! The approach is beautiful – as each singer also plays a bit of acoustic guitar – in a setting that has shifting voices and guitar parts cascading through a wonderful array of tunes – sometimes in ways that create very resonant harmonies, sometimes with a more isolated feel that's more in a classic bossa mode. There's a warmth and spontaneity to the music that really comes through – this is no staid meeting of top talents – and the whole thing's better than we even might have expected, and maybe even better than most recent albums by some of these artists too. Titles include "Favela", "Nega Dina", "Picotado", "Toada", "Voce Voce", "Sinha Sinho", "O Mais Que Perfeito", "Vapor Barato", "Catavento E Girassol", and "Cachaca Arvore E Bandeira". CD

✨✧ Tom ZeBest Of Tom Ze – Brazil Classics 4 ... CD
Luaka Bop, 1970s/1980s/1990. Used ... $3.99
Although it's hard to understand from the perspective of over a decade (especially one that's seen Tom Ze rise to fame again), when this compilation was first put together, the music of Tom Ze had all but fallen off the musical map of Brazil. Ze was one of the founding fathers of Tropicalia – and unlike other members of that group, who rose to great fame during the 70s, and straighted up their act a bit, Ze always remained a committed modernist, as you'll hear on this sampling of 13 tracks from his rare releases on a number of labels. The style's incredibly hard to pin down – and in fact, we might describe the recordings as being "anti-style" – but if you've heard any of Ze's work, you know you're in for a treat. Titles include "Ma", "Doi", "Hein?", "Cademar", "Um Oh E Um Ah", and "A Felicidade". CD

Tom ZeCom Defeito De Fabrication ... LP
Luaka Bop, 1998. New Copy ... $19.99 20.99
An album that marked a huge return to form for the legendary Tom Ze – brought back to all the power and creativity of his groundbreaking work of the 70s! The set was given huge global circulation by the folks at Luaka Bop – who were key in introducing most of the world to Tom's music – which although groundbreaking, barely made it outside of Brazil in the 70s – and every aspect of the record is done just the right way to showcase the mania that Ze always brought to his music. Some tracks are quite spare, and have the poetic structure of some of Tom's classics – while others have more of a tuneful approach, but with an offbeat vibe that really sets them apart from most Brazilian music of the period. The set marked a huge interest in Tom's music for a new generation – and for good reason too. Titles include "Dancar", "Juventude Javali", "Valsar", "Xiquexique", "Olho Do Lago", and "Politicar".

Tom ZeDanc-eh-sa – Danca Dos Herdeiros Do Sacrificio ... CD
Irare (Brazil), 2006. Used ... $11.99
Very unusual work from Tom Ze – a series of 7 highly rhythmic tracks that announce the "death of the song" – and which features a mostly instrumental blend of acoustic and electronic elements! The tracks here are all very earthy – placing rhythm first, and building from lots of percussion, then adding in choppy guitar, bits of keyboards, chanting voices, and lots of weird sound effects and unusual noises – all with the highest level of mania you might expect from Tom Ze! Purportedly, the work is Ze's answer to an MTV marketing report that discovered a new trend for "hedonism, consumerism and social irresponsibility in youth" (big surprise!) – but whatever the inspiration or political motivation, the music also sounds plenty darn great on its own. Titles include "Atchim", "Uai Uai", "Taka Ta", "Abrindo As Urnas", "Acum Maha", and "Cara Cua". CD

Continental/Polysom (Brazil), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
Incredible! This is one of Tom Ze's best albums ever – and it's monsterously hard to find. The record is a fantastic blend of post-Tropicalia styles – and it features some strange arrangements that perfectly illustrated Ze's insane approach to songwriting. As with much of Ze's music, the actual sound is incredibly hard to describe – and the album bristles with imagination and creative fire. Includes a haunting spare version of "A Felicidade", plus the nutty instrumental "Tom", and the original tracks "So", "Ma", "Vai", "Ui!", "Hein?", and "Mae". LP, Vinyl record album

RGE/Som Livre (Brazil), 1970. New Copy ... $13.99
One of Tom Ze's greatest records – and an album that proves that the Tropicalista spirit didn't die once Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil went into exile! The cover is a bit standard, in comparison to the artier look of other Tom Ze albums – but the sound is very forward-thinking, and still hangs onto the best modes of the Tropicalia years – a fantastic blend of Ze's spare soulful songwriting, psychedelic influences, and traces of older baroque production in the mix. Many moments remind us of our favorite albums by the Veloso, Gil, or Gal Costa from 1968 and 1969 – and the album's got some killer songs like "Qualquer Bobagem", "Escolinha Da Robot", "La Vem A Onda", "Distancia", and "Me Da Me De Me Diz".

✨✧ Tom ZeCancoes Eroticas De Ninar ... CD
Circus (Brazil), 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
From the eyeball on the cover, right down to the sounds on the disc, Tom Ze once again blurs the boundaries between body and mind with his music – by giving us tunes that are playful and catchy, but also filled with madness and intelligence too! Ze's wit is as razor-sharp as ever, carried across here with instrumentation that's very much in the best modes of his later years – almost familiar, but always offbeat – as if Tom's turning Brazilian songforms inside out, in service of his lyrical wordplay. The album's definitely got some of the erotic bent hinted at in the title, but also has a lot more going on too – on titles that include "Por Baixo", "Arroz Lenda E Buque", "Descaracao Familiar", "Sexo", "Sobe Ni Mim", "Urgenica Didatica", and "Cade Mane".

Rev-Ola/Creation (UK), 1980s. New Copy ... $3.99 13.99
The complete recordings of Slaughter Joe Foster – an incredible guitarist whose sound had a huge influence on the mid 80s British pop scene – with a raspy jangle that showed up often in recordings by other bands on Creation Records, particularly Biff Bang Pow and Jesus & Mary Chain! Joe's got props from both Kim Fowley and Alan McGhee, two producers who helped him hone his guitar sound into the tonal noise that shows up on these great recordings – and although he was one of the lesser-remembered acts from the C80 years, his sound is right up there with the best of the Creation scene of the time. The set features 17 tracks in all, including "Positively Something Wild", "I Know You Rider", "Napalm Girl", "If I Die Before I Wake", "The Lonesome Death Of Thurston Moore", and "I'll Follow You Down".

Som Livre (Brazil), 1978. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Funky, soulful, and totally wonderful – a wicked late 70s live set from Jorge Ben – and one of his few post-Philips albums that really holds onto the best energy from earlier years! The date's a live one, and the group grooves in a style that's got plenty of Africa Brasil touches – mixed with some other soulful and funky modes too – always great for Jorge's wonderful vocals, especially on some of the earthier tracks. The production is nice and lean – with a core focus on Jorge's great voice, and the funky instrumentation of the band – which really lets the fantastic sound of the record come through strongly, without some of the heavier elements on some of Jorge's 80s records. The whole thing's great – and titles include "Troca Troca", "Bom Dia, Boa Tarde Boa Noite Amor", "A Banda Do Ze Pretinho", "Denize Rei", "Berenice", "Amante Amado", and "Era Uma Vez Treze". CD

A punky funky no wave classic from James White – working here under the name of The Contortions, in a manner that's very similar to his Off White album! The tunes dip, turn, and kind of groove with a mad sort of art school energy – shifting easily between fast and frenetic playing, and some more "out" jazz styled riffing. Most tracks have raw vocals, and titles include "Bedroom Athlete", "Twice Removed", "Roving Eye", "Anesthetic", "Contort Yourself", and "I Don't Want To Be Happy". LP, Vinyl record album

The amazing Lizzy Mercier Descloux adds one more global feather to her cap with this sweet little album – a set recorded in Rio, with help from a host of Brazilian musicians – and some special guest work from legendary trumpeter Chet Baker too! The record warms up the sound a bit from some of Lizzy's earlier records – still quite creative in both the songwriting and overall approach, but almost given a warmer spin alongside instrumentation that includes accordion from Sivuca, cavaquinho from Alceu Maia, acoustic guitar from Neco, and percussion from Djalma Correa! Other instrumentation still includes some of the keyboards and rhythm lines you'd know from Lizzy's other Ze Record releases – and titles include "Simply Beautiful", "Fog Horn Blues", "My Funny Valentine", "One For The Soul", "A World Is A Wah", and "Scala Saga Samba".

Ze/Light In The Attic, 1988. New Copy ... $11.99 15.98
The last lovely album in a wonderful run of records from Lizzy Mercer Descloux – one of the most unique talents to work on the Ze Records imprint in the 80s – and an artist who shared plenty of the genre-crossing, global-mixing elements of her contemporaries! The album's got a sound that's still as lean as Lizzy's earliest albums, but a slightly warmer glow too – almost a jazzy vibe at times, with a style that takes us back to our favorite sounds from the Swamp Children/Kalima on Factory Records at the same time – although with plenty of that French twist that she's always brought to her music. And in fact, this time around the lyrics seem even more French than ever – on titles that include "2 Femmes A La Mer", "L'Heure Bleu", "Once Upon A Time Out", "Echec Et Mat", and "A Room In New York". CD features bonus tracks – "Hurricane", "Playtime", "Gypsy Flame", "Lucky Strike Drive", and "Calypso Moguls (7" version)". CD

Ze (France), 1984. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99 23.98
Quite possibly the hippest album ever recorded by Lizzy Mercier Descloux – a session done in South Africa, and featuring a variety of unusual rhythms! The sound here isn't conventional African pop, and like other gems from the Ze Records catalog, this set blends together a number of styles into its own unique groove – some of the Ze dancefloor modes from earlier records, bright guitars ala high life recordings, and even some tropical touches that seem to be borrowed a bit from reggae. The resulting sound is great, and provides a deeper foil than before for Lizzy's English and French lyrics. Titles include "Aybssinia", "Mais Ou Sont Passees Lee Gazelles", "Dolby Sisters Saliva Brothers", "Queen Of Overdub Kisses", "I'm Liquor", "Momo On My Mind", and "Sun Jive". LP, Vinyl record album

Tracks mix early 80s New York club styles with Darnell's mad retro/exotic take on the world – coming out with a sound that's slightly hokey, but equally catchy! Includes the hits "Annie (I'm Not Your Daddy)", "I'm A Wonderful Thing Baby", and "Stool Pigeon" – plus the cuts "Imitation", "I'm Corrupt", "No Fish Today", and "Loving You Made A Fool Out Of Me".

Could you get any more disaffected than this collection of arty post punk brats? Bristling with the energy of New York's Village and lower east side, these great tracks from the late 70s and early 80s ooze a raw primitive vibe unmatched by even the fiercest punk rock of the day, and saddle it up next to some of the most ridiculously self aware poetry and lyrics you'll come across. 22 snapshots of the best the briefly lived NY No Wave scene had to offer, originally issued on ZE records, including James White & The Blacks "Contort Yourself" & "Almost Black", Lydia Lunch "Lady Scarface", Suicide "Mister Ray" & "Radiation", Teenage Jesus & The Jerks "The Closet" & "Empty Eyes", Rosa Yemen "Herpes Simplex", "Larousse Baron Bic" & "Rosa Vertov", Mars "3E" & "11,000 Volts", Arto/Neto "Pini, Pini" & "Malu" and Lizzy Mercier Descloux "Wawa" & "Torso Corso".

A really funked-up batch of dancefloor tunes – produced with a uniquely cross-cultural approach! Ze Records diva Lizzy Mercier Descloux works here with influential post-disco, post-punk producer Steve Stanely – on a set of tunes cut in Nassau, with some great backing by a combo that includes Wally Badarou on keyboards. The resulting groove takes the skittish pan-club sound of the early 80s Ze Records scene, and infuses it with the hippest take on Jamaican rhythms of the time – resulting in a groundbreaking batch of tunes that were years ahead of their time!

Ze (France), Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Don Was come back! All is forgiven! For years, we'd thought poorly of you because of later projects, but going back to this classic early album for Ze Records, we now realize what a genius you were! Like other sets on Ze at the time, this one's a brilliant blend of funk, punk, rock, and soul – done with a post-P Funk approach to the grooves that puts plenty of bass on the bottoms, and which also flows lots of other interesting instrumentation into the grooves to keep things fresh. The production is stellar – soulful, bouncing, and joyously aware of every element of the full album's potential – and the whole album's a lively ensemble affair that features work by artists as diverse as Wayne Kramer, Marcus Belgrave, and Sweet Pea Atkinson! CD is greatly expanded from the original, and titles include "Oh Mr Friction", "Wheel Me Out (long version)", "Out Come The Freaks", "Hello Operator (short)", "It's An Attack", "Carry Me Back To Old Morocco", "Christmas Time In Motor City", "Tell Me That I'm Dreaming", and some nice bonus mixes!

Ho! This one takes us back! We're not as old as you might think here at Dusty Groove, but we're old enough to remember that wonderful period in the early 80s when somewhere on the lower east side, the energy and rawness of punk and post punk were meeting up with the glamour of the glitzed up disco club scene. ZE records was all over the scene, releasing the finest mutated disco from arch scenesters like August Darnell and the not-yet-heavyweight producer Don Was to other greats who might sadly have become sidebars in the history of modern music if not for this compilation, like Lizzy Mercer Descloux and Cristina. Each and every track grooves along with an unstoppable energy, whether it's Kid Creole's sophisticated Latin-esque numbers, Garcons' bubbling synths or Was (Not Was)'s faux R&B. Original 2CD set has been split into 2 single CDs – with tracks on volume 2 that include "Faites Le Proton" by Casino Music, "Tell Me That I'm Dreaming" by Was Not Was, "Mission Impossible" by Lizzy Mercier Descloux, "Re Bop Electronic" by Marie & Les Garcons, "I Know What Boys Like" by The Waitresses, "Disco Clone" by Cristina, "Que Pasa/Me No Pop I" by Coati Mundi, "I'm A Wonderful Thing" by Kid Creole, "Out Come The Freaks" by Was Not Was, "Nacissique" by Caroline Loeb, and "Fire" by Lizzy Mercier Descloux.

Ze (France), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic follow-up to the legendary Mutant Disco compilation on Ze Records – one that's newly put together by the revived label, but which features some of the company's best club cuts from the late 70s and early 80s! The "garage" in the title is a sly reference to the fact that Larry Levan's work at the Paradise Garage helped break some of the best Ze tunes on the New York scene – and overall, there's a definite early 80s downtown groove to the tracks on the package – a wonderful blend of post-disco and punk-funk elements, all served up with the usual Ze sense of style and whimsy! The best part of the package is that it brings together a number of harder to find Ze tracks – including a large number of tunes we haven't been able to track down in years, plus a few more that are making a much-needed first appearance here on CD! 15 tracks in all – with titles that include "I'm An Indian Too" by Don Armando, "Yaya" by Ron Rogers, "Sey Hey" by Coati Mundi, "Man Vs The Empire Brain Building" by Was Not Was, "Maladie D'Amour" by Aural Exciters, "Outlaw (August Darnell rmx)" by Alan Vega, "Dance Or Die" by Sweet Pea Atkinson with Was Not Was, "Techno Freqs" by Junie Morrison, "Read My Lips" by Thousand Points Of Night (Was Not Was), "No Time To Stop Believing In Love" by Daisy Chain, "He's The Groove" by Snuky Tate, and "Dream Baby Dream (long version)" by Suicide.

When the dancefloor squeaks, out come the geeks! This set's a great counterpart to the classic Was Not Was album on Ze Records – as it offers up 12" remixes and obscurities by the group – all done in the same disco-not-disco blend of funk, punk, and club that made their earliest work so fresh! A number of the tunes on the set are remakes of tracks from the group's album – but like much of the remixes on Ze, they're handled in ways that really transform from the original – adding in a lot more percussion and bass, and going for a lively "party" sort of feel that really makes the tunes sound great! Titles include "Tell Me That I'm Dreaming (traditional 12" rmx)", "Out Come The Freaks (predominantly funk version)", "Wheel Me Out (classic 12" version)", "Hello Operator (classic 12" version)", "Dance Or Die", "Tell Me That I'm Dreaming (souped up version)/Out Come The Freaks (dub version)", "White People Can't Dance", and "(Return To The Valley Of) Out Come The Freaks (extended)".

Ian Dury & The BlockheadsDo It Yourself ... LP
Stiff, 1979. Very Good ... $3.99
One of the great ones from Ian Dury – a record that goes way beyond simple quirky rock, and explodes with some wonderful jazzy touches! The sound here is totally great – very much in the sway of Chaz Jankel's musical direction, and filled with great bits on sax, keyboards, and guitar that have a fair bit more warmth and soul than Dury's original records. There's actually less standout hits here – but that's ok, because the record has a really unified feel overall – strongly in the funky arty dancefloor mode that you might expect from some of the Ze Records camp. Titles include "Dance Of The Screamers", "Inbetweenies", "Quiet", "Sink My Boats", "Don't Ask Me", "This Is What We Find", and "Uneasy Sunny Day Hotsy Totsy". LP, Vinyl record album

Ish and the Foxy crew still going strong at the end of the 80s – although here, they seem to have dropped some of their Miami disco approach and are going for a sound that's got more of a New York new wave influence overall! There's almost some Ze Records touches on a few numbers – including some harder guitars and percussion – and a number of tunes move towards more of a quirky style than a soulful one. Titles include "Girls", "I Can't Stand The Heat", "Let's Be Bad", "Tonight", "Sambambe Rio", "I Belong To You", "She's So Cool", and "Rrrrock". CD

Gilberto GilGilberto Gil (1969) (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1969. Used ... $11.99
The rare 3rd album by Gilberto Gil, and a key piece of the Tropicalia puzzle – one of the most wildly experimental albums from those years, and Gil's last before going into exile! The sound is much more electric than his other albums from the late 60's – and the production, songwriting, and instrumentation get very crazy at times – but never too crazy to cover up Gilberto's excellent singing, which is still as filled with feeling as ever. Arrangements are by the mighty Rogerio Duprat, who does as great a job here of balancing Gil's sensitivities as he does on Gal Costa's sublime efforts from 1969 – and the instrumentation is a weird and wonderful mix of Bahian rhythms, fuzzy guitar, and crazy electronics – all heartfelt one minute, freaked out the next. Tracks include "Cerebro Eletronico", "Volks Volkswagen Blue", "Futurivel", and "2001", which was written by Tom Ze and Rita Lee – plus the wild cut "Objecto Semi-Identificado", which is sort of a John Cage-esque track of found radio and electronics, with vocals by Gil!

Chas JankelQuestionnaire ... LP

An overlooked bit of crossover funk from Chas Jankel – best known both as the musical force of Ian Dury & The Blockheads during the late 70s, and as the composer of "Ai No Corrida", which was covered more famously by Quincy Jones! This set's got a surprisingly great feel that's ripe for new discovery – a tightening up of the kinds of tunes that Jankel was doing with Dury (who still contributes lyrics but not vocals here), and a warmly gliding style that's halfway between the New York Ze Records mode of the time, and some of the growing wave of British imports. Titles include the great club track "Glad To Know You", plus "3,000,000 Synths", "Questionnaire", "109", "Now You're Dancing", "Boy", and "Magic Of Music". LP, Vinyl record album

JBsThese Are The JBs ... LP
Now Again, 1970. New Copy ... $24.99
A stunner of a record – the first-ever album by The JBs, never issued back in the day – and lost for years until it recently resurfaced on a test pressing! The set features a leaner, more stripped-down version of the group – one that features Bootsy Collins on bass, and which doesn't rely as much on the horns as it does some very upfront playing by the rhythm section – who really set fire to the extended instrumental solos on the album's very long tracks! Group members include Robert McCullough on tenor, St Clair Pickney on flute and baritone, Bobby Byrd on piano, Catfish Collins on guitar, and James Brown himself on organ – and the mighty Clyde Stubblefield handles drums, as well as Frank Kash Waddy. All tracks are very long – quite different than the shorter single-type cuts on Pass The Peas – and the record features the first recording of "The Grunt", plus the long jams "I'll Ze", "These Are The JBs (parts 1 & 2)", and "When You Feel It Grunt If You Can".

A pivotal album from Grace Jones – and a record that has her shedding some of her fuller styles from the disco years, and moving into some of the darker, colder grooves we always love the best! The title track is reason alone to buy the record – a remake of The Normal's "Warm Leatherette", done here by Grace in a way that somehow gives the electro dance number a sense of soul! Most other tracks are remakes too – but in a really great way that follows in a playful Ze Records approach to all things older – loving the original essence, but revitalizing things for a newer wave of sound. Titles include versions of "The Hunter Gets Captured By The Game", "Love Is The Drug" and "Private Life" – plus "Pars", "Breakdown", and "Bullshit". 2CD version is filled with great bonus materials – long versions of "Warm Leatherette", "Private Life", "Rolling Stone", "Love Is The Drug", "Pars", and "The Hunter Gets Captured By The Game" – plus 13 more mixes from singles and remixes – including 3 different takes on Joy Division's "She's Lost Control".

Polydor/Discobertas (Brazil), Mid 70s. New Copy 4 CDs ... $48.99
A much-needed look at the 70s work of Jards Macale – a singer/songwriter who was almost as important to his generation as Caetano Veloso or Tom Ze! First up is the 1972 self-titled album Jards Macale – an album that we'd rank right up there with work by Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, or Lo Borges from the same time – with an underground singer/songwriter style, performed in a manner that mixes rock and jazz styles, but all with a rough edge and a very rootsy feel. Macale is an enormous talent that's always been woefully overlooked by listeners outside of Brazil – but he's one of the greatest talents of the 70s, and this may well be his best album! Titles include "Farinha Do Desprezo", "Mal Secreto", "Hotel Das Estrelas", "78 Rotacoes", and "Movimento Dos Barcos". Also features 3 bonus tracks – "Anjo Exterminado", "Movimento Dos Barcos", and "Rua Real Grandeza". Next is Aprender A Nadar, from 1974 – a record that only seems to deepen the songwriting skills of Jards, while also giving him more confidence on the vocal tip. There's still plenty of sharp edges throughout – on material that ranges from post-Tropicalia MPB, to mellow tracks delivered in a smooth soulful voice. Titles include "Jards Anet Da Vida", "Sois Coracoes", "Imagens", "Dona De Castelo", "Estatutos Da Gafieira", "Mambo Da Cantareira", and "E Dai". Also fetaures bonus tracks – demos of "Boneca Semitoica", "Dona De Castelo", "Rua Real Grandeza", "Anjo Exterminado", and "Senhor Dos Sabados". Box set also features 2 more CDs of rare and unissued tracks – 24 more titles that run from Jards' earliest years on record, to some overlooked tracks from later years too! CD

RGE/Som Livre (Brazil), Early 60s. New Copy ... $8.99
A classic set of samba from Miltinho – done in a mix of lively styles and more romantic modes! Some tracks here are quite driving and upbeat, while others have a sadder, more emotive feel – a bit like Brazilian pop of the late 50s, but perhaps somewhat leaner overall – and in a way, this album is kind of a turning point in Miltinho's career – as he makes the shift towards some of the bossa-inspired styles he'd pick up more strongly in later years. The arrangements are by Ruben Perez and Nelsinho – and they're as timelesss and breezily beautiful as ever! Title include "Caminho Perdido", "Samba Do Crioulo", "E Amanha", "Samba Sem Pim Pom", "Ze De Conceicao", "Serenata Da Chuva", "Faco Um Lelele", and "Cancao De Amor". CD

Continental/Soul Patrol (France), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
A funky samba gem from the 70s – the only album we've ever seen from Jorginho Pessanha, and a set that grooves with plenty of bassy percussion – in an all-acoustic mode that's nice and raw! Jorginho's got wonderfully soulful vocals – raspy, with a real charm that totally gets us, even if we can't understand the language – and the music is totally infectious right from the start, with all sorts of bumping drum lines peppered with other percussion, a jazzy trumpet, and some backup vocals too! The whole thing's great – kind of a rootsier version of sounds explored by Jorge Ben or Wilson Simonal at the time – and titles include "Hoje Nao", "Mulata", "Nem Meu Amor", "E Isso Ai Moco", "Que Samba E Esse", "A Historia Do Ze", "Tem Que Ter Tamborim", and "Ex Amor".

Arthur RussellCalling Out Of Context ... LP
Audika, Mid 80s-Early 90s. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $26.99
A great collection of unreleased recordings by the great, largely unheralded Arthur Russell – one of the key players in the late 70s/early 80s NY underground – whose influence can be found everywhere from the smoky disco of the Paradise Garage scene to the dubby, arrhythmic, and percussive pounding of the post punk era! If you know anything about Russell, you know he hated to be nailed down. He's a classically trained cellist, who made his name producing now legendary disco numbers for Loose Joints and others. He went into the 80s exploring the kind of harder charging, minimalist grooving vibe that was kicked into effect by the unholy union of punk and dance music, but unlike some of the others Arthur still carried the soulful musicality of the 70s. The 12 tracks here are culled from sessions cut between 1985 and 1990 when Russell was signed to Rough Trade – and have gone completely unreleased until now! Most feature Russell on almost unrecognizable ambient cello, hypnotic vocals, and some of the coolest 80s drum programming you'll ever hear – with lots of cool synth notes and effects overdubbed, often with Peter Zummo on trombone and Mustafa Ahmed on percussion. It's really hypnotic, fairly raw, quite left of center but still very groovy stuff! If you appreciate the Ze Records scene, and all of those the great reissues of the NY post punk and disco years, this is totally essential! Tracks include "In The Deer Forest Part 1", "The Platform On The Ocean", "You And Me Both", "Calling Out Of Context", "Arm Around You", "Wild Combination", "Get Around To It" and more.

Nine different Brazilian pianists, each performing a solo selection of their own – in a concert setting that has each musician really rising to the occasion in the others' company! The difference in modes and manners here is strong, but much of the material follows the warmly melodic style we've come to love from the Adventure label – especially their way of updating older Brazilian modes from choro and beyond, refitted to a leaner contemporary acoustic style. Titles include "Odeon" by Amilton Godoy, "Caico" by Julia Tygel, "Luiza No Parque" by Ze Godoy, "Felipe Na Area" by Tiago Costa, "Voo" by Heloisa Fernandes, "Capira" by Benjamim Taubkin, and "Duda No Frevo" by Hercules Gomes.

Cultures Of Soul, Early 70s. Sealed 7 x 7" Box Set ... $49.99
A stunning set of funky nuggets from 70s Brazil – an expertly chosen collection that really hones in on material that shows the strongest influence on the scene from American work of the time – complete with heavy drums, sharp guitars, funky basslines, and killer keyboards that all bring a funky sound to the Portuguese vocals of the tunes! There's some occasional regional influences – touches of samba soul here and there – but overall, most of these cuts could equally compete with the best American funk of the time – save for the difference of language! Yet there's also some really great production and arrangement twists and turns too – unique elements that really make these tunes stand out, as kind of a hip "something extra" that makes the set well worth checking out. The mighty Greg Caz picked the music – and he's been collecting and spinning this stuff for many years – and titles include "A Hora E Essa" by Celia, "Kizumbau" by Eduardo Araujo, "Aposta" by Toni Tornado, "Paz E Amor" by Os Incriveis, "Uma Vida" by Dom Salvador E Abolicao, "Ei Voce Psiu" by Franco, "Jimmy Rende Se" by Tom Ze, "America Latina" by Osmar Milito & Quarteto Forma, "Swinga Sambaby" by Trio Mocoto, "Bochechuda" by Toni Tornado, and "Quem Va La" by Antonio Carlos E Jocafi. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Each track features a different group, and some players overlap here and there – creating a sense of unity amongst the performances – which have a great old school mix of hardbop and more lyrical moments – impeccably recorded in the style of the Something Cool label! Titles include "Scent Of Spring" and "Choro Pro Ze", performed by a group with Yuu Uesugi on trombone, Mike Zachernuk on trumpet, and Yuko Sakuma on piano; "Amembow" by the trio of pianist Hiroyuki Takubo; "Ballad" by pianist Ami Ogaeri; "Brown's Mood" and "Lined With A Groove" by the trio of bassist Yoshimasa Otsuka; and "The Red Bow Tie Cat" by the group of trombonist Itsumi Komano.

70s psychedelia from the northeastern state of Pernambuco, Brazil – incredible stuff that combines rawly percussive tropical sounds with a world of psychedelic creativity and possibilities – one of the best compilations ever put together by Mr Bongo! Lula Cortes was a pivotal figure in the scene and he's pretty well represented here, including his influential recordings with Ze Remalho. Even more exciting, though, is the stuff we've never been fortunate enough to hear before now – and there's a pretty good deal of it! The fusion of global psych and folk sounds into a distinctly Brazilian sound is nothing short of amazing – regional and traditional percussion underneath sitars, lutes, keyboards and more. It features songs by the great Lula Cortes & Ze Ramalho, Geraldo Azevedo & Alceu Valenca, Marconi Notaro, Flaviola E O Bando Do Sol and The Gentleman. 19 tracks in all: "Sorriso Delvagem" by The Gentlemen, "O Tempo" and "Desespero" by Flaviola E O Bando Do Sol, "Antropologica", "Maracatu" and "Fidelidade" by Marconi Notaro, "Mister Misterio", "Virgem Virginia" and more by Geraldo Azevedo & Alceu Valenca, "Bailado Das Muscarias" and "Maracas De Fogo" by Lula Cortes & Ze Ramalho, "Noite Preta" by Lula Cortes and more.

Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s. Used ... $11.99
An amazing introduction to one of the most significant cultural movements in the latter half of the 20th Century – the groundbreaking years of Tropicalia in late 60s Brazil! The music and legacy of Tropicalia are referenced often, but hardly ever presented this well – and this package is everything we could have hoped for as an introduction to the movement – filled not just with great music, but also an overwhelming amount of notes that trace the history of Brazilian music and art through their changes in relation to Tropicalia! In fact, the notes are almost worth the price of the compilation alone – very densely written over 48 pages in the CD booklet, with more information in one place than we've ever seen before. But as you might imagine, it's the music that really makes the set special – and Soul Jazz have done an excellent job of pulling together key late 60s works from the most important musicians associated with Tropicalia – an great starting point for the movement that's filled with most essential tracks! Titles include "Bat Macumba" by Gilberto Gil, "Tuareg" and "Sebastiana" by Gal Costa, "A Minha Menina" and "Panis Et Circenses" by Os Mutantes, "Alfo Mega" and "Tropicalia" by Caetano Veloso, "Gloria" and "Jimmy Renda-Se" by Tom Ze, "Procissao" by Gilberto Gil, "Ave Genghis Khan" by Os Mutantes, "Take It Easy My Brother Charles" by Jorge Ben, "Quero Sambal Meu Bem" by Tom Ze, "Lost In The Paradise" by Caetano Veloso, "Bat Macumba" by Os Mutantes, "Domingo No Parque" by Gilberto Gil & Os Mutantes, and "Irene" by Caetano Veloso.

Sweet funk from 70s Brazil – a totally great album from drummer Ronnie – aka Ronald Mesquita, the percussive force behind the Bossa Tres combo! This album's got a smoother groove than their records – great use of Fender Rhodes, gliding alongside sweet samba soul arrangements – in a mode that's a bit like some of the funkier 70s work by Joao Donato, with touches of some of the grooves that artists like Jorge Ben or Gilberto Gil were hitting at the time. Yet there might be a stronger fusion element at the core here – as the group also features Ze Carlos on tenor and flute, who shades things in nicely – and makes room for vocals from Loalwa and Jayyme Rocha. The album was issued by the Tapecar label around the same time as their classic release by Ana Mazzotti – and has a similar mix of fusion and Brazilian grooves! Titles include "Remelexo", "Atoa Atoa", "Esse Mare", "Visgo De Jaca", "Falsa Baiana", and "Albatroz". CD

Don't let the title or the cover point you in the wrong direction, because this set's definitely full of the same sort of rare psych and garage tracks you'd expect from American or British collections from the same period! The tunes show a surprisingly strong scene going down in Austria at the end of the 60s – one that maybe is just a touch behind of the trends in the UK and US, but also more than comfortable enough to play a lot with the styles – adding in some really cool twists and turns along the way, and doing a lot more than just offering up a local brand of beat group music. As with the first volume, the track list is great – and the package comes with full notes on the music – an array of titles that include "Future" by The Meadows, "Little Girl" by The Gamblers, "You Are The Only One" by The Slaves, "LSD" by The Desperates, "LSD 3000" by Harry David Quintet, "Beat In E" by Les Fantoms, "Say The Word" by The Earls, and "I Had Forgotten" by The Lost Generation.

Arrangements are by Azevedo, Dori Caymmi, and Radames Gnatalli – and the balance here is really beautiful, of a sort that only Brazilian artists seemed to perfect in the 70s!

Maria BethaniaDezembros ... CD
Sony (Japan), 1986. New Copy ... $14.99
One of Maria Bethania's best albums of the 80s – a set that has the singer almost hitting a more personal, more intimate mode – working with music from Caetano Veloso that helps bring in a closeness that Bethania was sometimes missing in her sound! The approach is a bit jazzy at times – with warm keyboard currents that allow Maria to trip lightly on the vocal tip, while still moving with the kind of sophisticated songwriting that serves her best – and Caetano also sings a bit on the record, as does Milton Nascimento. Titles include "Anos Dourados", "Doce Espera", "Yorubahia", "Gostoso Demais", "Tranchan", "Errei Sim", and "Cancoes E Momentos". CD

✨✧ Big BlackAtomizer (with download) ... LP
Homestead/Touch & Go, 1986. New Copy (reissue)... $15.99 17.98
A critical moment in the Chicago scene – and quite possibly the crowning moment from Big Black as well! The trio were already great on previous records, but they somehow move even farther forward with this one – a deep dive into the twisted mind of Steve Albini, served up with a sonic intensity that instantly sets these guys apart from just about anyone out there – not punk, not noise, not anything else – just pure jaw-dropping Big Blackness! Iain Burgess recorded the whole thing with the group – giving in that sharp sound that was just becoming to be known as the Chicago style, which Albini would uncork even more strongly in his studio work of the next decade – and titles include a searing live take on "Cables", the chilling "Jordan Minnesota", and the tracks "Passing Complexion", "Big Money", "Kerosene", "Bad Houses", "Fists Of Love", "Stinking Drunk", "Bazooka Joe", and "Strange Things".
