✨✧ Albert KingBorn Under A Bad Sign ... LP
Stax, 1967. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of THE electric blues records of the 60s – a seminal set by Albert King that was probably blasted out of more college dorm rooms than southside juke joints, but which still more than deserves its due! The set was recorded by Stax with a nice raw sound – guitar very much upfront, but also set amidst arrangements that have a bit more soul than the average Chicago blues session from the same time. The set features a number of originals by Stax regulars like Booker T and David Porter – and titles include "The Hunter", "Born Under A Bad Sign", "Crosscut Saw", "Down Don't Bother Me", "Laundromat Blues", and "Personal Manager". LP, Vinyl record album
(Late 90s 180 gram Sundazed pressing.)

✨✧ Francis BebeyAfrican Electronic Music 1975 to 1982 ... LP
Born Bad (France), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
Not what you might expect when shopping for African music – unique electronic sounds from Cameroon musician Francis Bebey – as heavy on keyboards as other 70s work is on guitar! There's still plenty of acoustic elements in the mix though, too – lots of earthy percussion at the bottom, which links some of these tracks to other styles of the time – even though some of the more unusual tunes here have these great electronic sounds that almost feel like they came from the late 70s German underground! The mix of modes is breathtaking – as if Moebius and Roedelius recorded with musicians from Lagos – shaking off the colder sounds of the Conny Plank side of the spectrum, to come up with a warm new style that's really unique! Titles include "La Condition Masculine", "Sahle", "The Coffee Cola Song", "Super Jingle", "Pygmy Love Song", "Agatha", "Catching Up", and "Divorce Pygmee". LP, Vinyl record album
(2LPs – and a very nice package!)

✨✧ Francis BebeyPsychedelic Sanza 1982 to 1984 ... LP
Born Bad (France), Early 80s. New Copy 2LP ... Just Sold Out!
Totally cool, totally amazing music from the enigmatic Francis Bebey – a contemporary on the early 80s African scene of William Onyeabor, and an equally experimental artists! Bebey used a fair bit of electronics, but often with sounds that had acoustic roots – in this case, the ultra cool sansa, which is a similar thumb piano to the kalimba – amplified here in really great ways, and mixed with some moody, dark elements throughout! The music has much more of a 70s vintage than you'd guess from the dates on the record – thanks partly to the raw percussion, and very offbeat production – which sometimes is mellow, sometimes bursts out in these shocking waves of sound. Titles include "Sanza Tristesse", "Forest Nativity", "Sunny Crypt", "Ngoma Likembe", "Guinee", "Di Saegi", and "Binta Madiallo". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bernard EstardyBernard Estardy's Space Oddities 1970 to 1982 ... LP
Born Bad (France), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Fantastic sounds from an unsung French music hero – sonic genius Bernard Estardy, whose talents mostly lay behind the studio window, where he worked magic with some of the best French singers of the 60s through the 90s! Yet during that time, Estardy was also recording some very cool cuts of his own – sound library material that saw the light of day on one rare funky album, La Formule Du Baron – but which also includes all the lost gems that appear on this great collection too! The music here is both groovy and playful, experimental and funky – a bit like some of the more upbeat and catchy electronic work dune by Piero Umiliani in the 70s, but often with some of the French touches you might know in music from artists like Jean-Claude Vannier or Francois De Roubaix. Some of the later tunes have a nice dark current – similar to the Italian Cosmic electronic tracks – while other earlier numbers have some warmer funky 70s elements in place. Titles include "Phasing Round", Cha Tatch Ka", "Artifice Percussion", "Asiatic Dream", "Pussy Ring", "Emeute A Tokyo", "Coeur Polaire", "Gang Train", Angoisse Au Coeur", and "Marionettes Club".

✨✧ EvaristeIl Ne Pense Qu'a Ca – 1967 to 1970 ... LP
Born Bad (France), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Really mad music from the French scene at the end of the 60s – work that's even weirder and more wild than some of the big names of the time – as if someone locked up Pierre Henry, Serge Gainsbourg, and Areski in the studio – and told them to come up with something new and unique! Evariste is a singer who's got a great understanding of modernism, but also often sings with a very primal sort of energy – not afraid to scream and shout when he wants, and very tuned towards the fuzzy guitar, heavy drums, and moody organ on his tunes – some of which was played by the great Eddy Louiss! Michel Colombier helped with some of the arrangements, and the music here also bears hallmarks of his genius in the studio – which makes the whole thing a great overlooked chapter in French music, and one that really ties together so many different stands from the scene. Titles include "Ma Mie", "Les Pommes De Lune", "La Faute A Nanterre", "Evariste Aux Fans", "Je Ne Pense Qu'A Ca", "Je Chante Pour Vous Faire Marcher", and "Dans La Lune". LP, Vinyl record album
Also available Il Ne Pense Qu'a Ca – 1967 to 1970 ... CD 13.99

✨✧ VariousCha Cha Au Harem – Orientica France 1960 to 1964 (with bonus download) ... LP
Born Bad (France), Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A strange mix of Latin rhythms and exotica modes – served up here on a set of recordings from early 60s France that we might not have heard otherwise! Grooves are often in the cha cha mode promised in the title, but other instrumentation is definitely "au harem" – exotic woodwind passages, Mid East percussion, vocal bits, and more – almost as if the modes of Les Baxter and Martin Denny had been moved to the ancient world of Asia Minor! The approach is great – often very much in the late 50s styles used by Capitol and Liberty Records in the US – and titles include "Ismaila" by Benny Benett, "Inch Allah" by Fred Adison, "Danse Du Sud" by Zina Nahid, "Mahomet De Tunis" by Ali Baba Et Son Ensemble, "Oriental Express" by Roger Morris, "El Mechoi" by Los Cangaceiros, "Danse L'Amour" by Staiffi Et Ses Mustafas, and "On M'Appelle L'Oriental" by Trio Joroca.

✨✧ Joe HarriottJoe Harriott Swings High ... LP
Cadillac (UK), 1967. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A fantastic lost slice of work by one of the greatest modern jazz forces on the British jazz scene of the 60s – Jamaican-born saxophonist Joe Harriott, known for his groundbreaking avant jazz sessions and his experiments with Indian classical music! The sound here is quite different than those two better-known aspects of Harriott's career – and represents a return to the hardbop style he was using in the late 50s, when first making waves on the London scene. However, that's not a bad thing at all – as the album's overflowing with modern jazz undercurrents, and almost has a fresh post-Mingus approach to the horn parts and rhythm progressions. The quintet includes trumpeter Stu Hamer, drummer Phil Seaman, bassist Coleridge Goode, and pianist Pat Smythe – all well-suited players for Harriott in such a mode, and working here in a style that recalls the first great moments of British jazz from the late 50s. Titles include "Strollin South", "Just Goofin", "Time For Love", "The Rake", "Blues In C", and "Tuesday Morning Swing". LP, Vinyl record album
(Newly remastered by Gearbox!)

Jimi HendrixBlues (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Sony, Late 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $30.99 32.99
The brilliant bluesy side of Hendrix – great stuff recorded from '66-'70 – including his most blues based originals and incredible covers! Bluesy it is, but it's also Jimi – with the soaring, loose and massively influential lead guitar grooves and many of which went unreleased until the 90s – and remains among the most essential of posthumous Hendrix releases. Includes "Hear My Train A Comin'" (acoustic and electric versions), "Born Under A Bad Sign", "Catfish Blues", "Red House", "Voodoo Chile Blues", "Mannish Boy", "Once I Had A Woman", "Jam 292" and "Electric Church Red House". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Albert KingNew Orleans Heat ... LP
Tomato, 1978. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
Albert King teams up with Allen Toussaint for a sweet set of soul-drenched blues! The record's a bit warmer than some of King's earlier work, but Toussaint's presence makes for a nice edge at times – as does work by a host of New Orleans musicians who include Wardell Quezergue on electric piano, George Porter on bass, Leo Nocentelli on guitar, and even Toussaint on additional keys. Some tracks are straighter King-styled blues – but others carry nice Crescent City echoes in their chunkier rhythms. Titles include a funky cover of "Get Out Of My Life Woman" – plus "Flat Tire", "This Feeling", "I Got The Blues", "We All Wanna Boogie", "Born Under A Bad Sign", and "I Get Evil". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has light wear.)

VariousSoul Shots Vol 7 – Urban Blues – The First Time I Met The Blues ... LP
Rhino, 1960s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A nice selection of classic 60s soul and blues numbers, focusing on heavy blues and R&B from the cities, and while we had remembered this set hewed close to the mainstream, there's a few nice little nuggets on here that they dug a little deeper for. 13 tracks in all, including "Driving Wheel" by Little Junior Parker, "Stormy Monday Blues" and "I Pity The Fool" by Bobby Bland, "Born Under A Bad Sign" by Albert King, "Hi Heel Sneakers" by Tommy Tucker, "Sweet Sixteen" and "The Thrill Is Gone" by BB King, "Messin' With The Kid" by Junior Wells, "Tramp" by Lowell Fulsom, "Homework" by Otis Rush, "The First Time I Met The Blues" byBuddy Guy, "Part Time Love" by Little Johnny Taylor and "Grits Ain't Groveries (All Around The World)" by Little Milton.

Marvin GayeSuper Hits ... LP
Tamla, 1960s. Very Good+ ... $24.99
Kind of an ultimate Marvin Gaye hits compilation – issued in 1970, with one of the most badass Motown covers of the time! The album's got a famous image of Gaye as a black Superman – flying high on the cover of a set that's filled with some of his best 60s work for Motown – and for some reason, there seems to be a few more cuts in the package than you might get in the usual hits collection of the time. Every title's a classic – and tunes include "Pride & Joy", "That's The Way Love Is", "Ain't That Peculiar", "Stubborn Kind Of Fellow", "Too Busy Thinking About My Baby", and "Hitch Hike". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original stereo pressing. Cover has surface wear, a split spine and clear tape along the bottom seam.)

Phineas NewbornHere Is Phineas ... LP
Atlantic, Late 50s. Near Mint- ... $29.99
Classic early work by Phineas Newborn – and a record cut right after his emergence from the great Memphis scene of the 1950s! Most of the album features trio material – cut with Kenny Clarke on drums and Oscar Pettiford on bass – but a few tracks also feature some very nice guitar work by Newborn's lesser-known brother, Calvin – who helps give the record some slight bluesy undercurrents you won't hear on other albums from Phineas at the time. The style is a mix of bop soloing and that lyrical approach to the keyboard that Newborn was forging along with a few other popular pianists of his generation – and titles include "Dahoud", "Celia", "Barbados", and "Newport Blues". LP, Vinyl record album
(Japanese pressing, with obi – P 7562A.)

VariousPierre Barouh & The Saravah Sound ... LP
Saravah/We Want Sounds (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $38.99 39.99
One of our favorite record labels of all time finally gets its due – in a wonderful package that not only brings together some of the coolest cuts from the legendary French imprint Saravah Records, but also tells the story behind the company and it's groundbreaking approach to music! Saravah was born from the fame of Francis Lai's soundtrack for A Man & A Woman (Un Homme Et Une Femme), and from the lyrical contributions of Pierre Barouh – but immediately after, the company began pursuing a musical path like no other – taking on strands of jazz, world music, and the hippest styles in France – and creating new music that was unlike anything that had ever been recorded! Some of the best moments from the legendary label are here – including tracks that have the Art Ensemble of Chicago working with singers – Marva Broome on "Mystifying Mama", Alfred Panou on "Je Suis Un Sauvage", and Brigitte Fontaine on "Comme A La Radio" – plus more titles that include "Monsieur Chimpanze" by Michel Roques, "Sicilienne" by Maurice Vander, "Delhi Daily" by Baroque Jazz Trio, "Le Bruit Et Le Bruit" by Beatrice Arnac, "EDF Power" by EDF, "Trane's Call" by Georges Arvanitas, "Saudade" by Pierre Barouh & Baden Powell, "Je Jouais Le Piano" by Jacques Higelin, "Desert Angel" by Cohelmec Ensemble, and "80 AB" by Areski. LP, Vinyl record album
