✨✧ Emilio Aparicio MoogExpansion Galactica ... CD
Mental Experience (Spain), Early 70s. New Copy ... $16.99
Really great sounds from an artist with "moog" in his name – and a fair bit in his music as well! Emilio Aparicio Moog recorded these tracks on the Guatemala scene in the 70s – and the titles were mostly issued as ultra-rare 45s, but are brought together here in one heck of a great album of moogy madness – a set that rivals all the late 60s brilliance of better-known artists like Mort Garson or Jean Jacques Perry – with equally groovy results! Like the best of the moog purveyors of his time, Emilio Aparicio works at a level that's very unique – not just moogy covers of familiar pop hits, but new tunes that really make the most of the space age instrument – at a level that's filled with upbeat, very rhythmic tunes that have the keyboard exploding with analogue charms at every twist and turn. Titles include "La Ceremonia", "Expansion Galactica", "Brujeira", "Bo Bo Bo Beau", "Transfiguracion Del Iniciado", "Paren La Contaminacion Del Aire", "El Misterio De Tiahuanaco", and "Los Visitantes De Sirio".

Kaoru AkimotoHarlem Nocturne – Mood Pops Sax Best – Standard Best 1200 ... CD
Universal (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $14.99
The Japanese really loved the tenor sax instrumental style a lot longer than most listeners in the US – and kept on recording for years in modes that were made famous in the 50s by artists like Plas Johnson or Sam "The Man" Taylor! Here, on a record from 1969, Kaoru Akimoto blows these long, moody lines on tenor – very much in the kind of easygoing late nite mode that Taylor especially favoredon his albums for MGM – often with a nice degree of echo in the production, and an especially cool wordless female voice in the arrangements – almost adding an Edda Dell'Orso element to the proceedings! The cover makes the whole thing look cheesy, but the sound is beautifully soulful – on titles that include "Ebb Tide", "Moon River", "Strangers In The Night", "Sinno Me Moro", "Tara's Theme", and "Yesterday".

Warren Baker with Paul Tanner & Andre MonteroMusic For Heavenly Bodies ... CD
Omega/Modern Harmonic, 1958. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
There's two sorts of heavenly bodies on the cover – but the real charms of the record lie inside, as the set's overflowing with incredible early theremin recordings! The album features spacey orchestral settings arranged by Warren Baker, and conducted by Andre Montero – plus fantastic work on the "electro theremin" by Paul Tanner – a different variation on the incredible post-war electronic instrument! The "electro theremin" was Tanner's own creation, and it works on a cool sliding principle that creates a lot of weird spacey dipping, turning, and soaring effects. The album's packaged in a lovingly heavy cover, with a nude "heavenly body" floating in space amidst a sea of bright colors! Titles include "Misty Moon Blues", "Out Of This World", "Holiday On Saturn", "20th Century Venus", and "Up To Jupiter". CD

✨✧ Brian BennettDrama Montage Vols 1 & 2 ... CD
Bruton Music/Vocalion (UK), 1978/1979. New Copy 2 CDs ... $19.99
Hard-driving work from UK sound library hero Brian Bennett – an artist who gave us so much great funky work at the start of the 70s, and who's still going strong here at the other end of the decade! Both records are mighty nice – a mixture of familiar funk with some deeper tones that are equally compelling – almost with the full flourish of a film soundtrack in scope,a nd with a good focus on some of the strongest standout numbers, which are occasionally presented with a bit of variation. Instrumentation is a mix of keyboards, guitar, horns, and some great low-end elements – and the package features both albums, with titles that include "Eye Opener", "Girl Alone", "Pussy Foot", "In Danger", "Routine Check", "Villain", "Hip Joint", "Psychopath", "Thrash", and "Heavy Traffic".

James Bond (Jimmy Bond)James Bond Songbook ... CD
Mira/BGP (UK), 1965. New Copy ... $8.99 14.99
Way more than just a James Bond cash-in record – and instead an ultra-hip jazz session from the west coast scene of the 60s! The James Bond at the helm of the record is actually Jimmy Bond – the great bassist who worked on some key sessions of the late 50s and early 60s as a sideman, and who turns out to be a surprisingly great leader on this rare mid 60s date! The record is more jazz than anything else – played with a crime/spy bent, to be sure – but also flowing with really great solos and a fair bit of a bossa influence in the rhythms! The group here is more than hip enough to make the record work – with Harold Land on tenor sax, Bobby Bryant on trumpet, and Buddy Colette on flute and tenor – all working in a sextet led by Bond, with plenty of round, warm, almost modal lines on his bass – punctuated nicely by piano from Joe Parnello and drums by Joh Guarin. Arrangements are by Dick Groove – who keeps things very groovy – and many of the tracks here are actually original numbers written by Bond and Warren Baker, titled after Ian Fleming books that had not yet been made into movies at the time of this album! Titles include "Casino Royale", "Moonraker", "For Your Eyes Only", "007 Theme From Dr No", "Man With The Golden Gun", "Diamonds Are Forever", and "Live & Let Die". (Jazz, Now Sound) CD
