✨✧ Angelilo & HamelComplicite ... LP
Return To Analog (Canada), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A jazz record, but one with so much going on it's impossible to pin down – strands of influences from Latin, Brazilian, and other modes – mixed with occasional vocal contributions too! The vibe is a bit like some of those really creative criss-crossings on the French scene of the 70s – maybe like a record on Saravah – and maybe that's no surprise, given that the set is French Canadian – a meeting in the studio between bassist/arranger Vic Angelillo and pianist Henri Hamel – in a lineup that features guitars, trumpet, alto, soprano sax, flute, and some nice electric piano too! Vocalists include Ranee Lee, Leo Monast, Yolanda Lisi, and Claude Leveilee – and the whole thing has a really groovy vibe. Titles include "Quand On Verra Mon Ame", "Paix", "On Ne Sait Plus", "Un Ile Perdue", "Le Gout D'Aimer", "L'Eau De L'Ennui", and "Valse D'Une Ile". LP, Vinyl record album

Miles Davis with Sonny StittLive In Paris – 1960 ... LP
Fremeaux & Associates/Return To Analog (Canada), 1960. New Copy 2LP ... $24.99
Rare work from a sometimes-overlooked chapter in the career of Miles Davis – a time when Sonny Stitt was briefly filling the tenor sax role that was more famously held by John Coltrane and Wayne Shorter! Stitt in any group is always a treat – and here, working with Miles, he turns in some of his most far-reaching solos of the period – very different than the shorter, more economical work of his studio albums – and even different than some of his longer-form material on Prestige to come! Stitt really rises to meet Miles in spirit – maybe in part because of the rest of the group features the famous rhythm trio of Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Jimmy Cobb on drums – moving hard and with a great sense of modal energy, on titles that include "Four", "All Of You", "No Blues", "Two Bass Hit", "Walkin", "Autumn Leaves", "So What", "If I Were A Bell", and "Round Midnight".

EdenEden ... LP
Return To Analog (Canada), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
If Adam's Eden was this groovy, he might not have gotten into trouble with Eve, the apple, and all of that other business! This Eden's a French Canadian group from the 70s – and one that's got a wonderfully proggy sound – super-strong drums, long-spinning keyboards, and criss-crossing guitar lines that get occasional vocal support – but which are more than comfortable enough here working on long instrumental passages, of the type that put this record tight next to some of the best Italian prog classics of the 70s. Vocals are by Jean-Bernard Borja, but only feature on a few of the songs – leaving plenty of room for instrumental magic on cuts that include "Intuition", "La Foret", "Allias", "La Ballerine Musclee", "Transe", and a nice take on Faure's "Pavane".

✨✧ Beverly Glenn-CopelandBeverly Copeland (clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
CBC/Return To Analog (Canada), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Completely sublime work from Beverly Glenn Copeland – a really unique artist who's almost a genre unto herself – and who sings here in a mix of folk, jazz, and soul – maybe resonant with work at the time by Terry Callier or Nina Simone, but every bit as individual as the best from those two giants too! The performance was recorded by CBC at a key moment in Beverly's career – after a time she'd spent on the scene in Montreal, really soaking up different influences and exploring musical pathways away from her American roots – to a point where she emerges here as a very righteous, yet very personal singer – clearly not immediately interested in chart success, even though she's got the power of a young Roberta Flack. Titles include "Northwind", "Swords Of Gold", "Don't Despair", "Nothing Beautiful", "Song From Beads", "Untitled", "Interval", "Reflections", and "Durocher". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sonny GreenwichSun Song ... LP
Radio Canada/Return To Analog (Canada), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A gem of a record from the great Sonny Greenwich – an open-toned guitarist with a style that's unlike anyone else we can think of – a Canadian player who never got much exposure down here in the US, but who really stands apart from most of the jazz guitarists of his generation! There's this unusual sense of color and phrasing that really makes Sonny stand out – chords that almost feel as if they're broken open and exposed from a Wes Montgomery sort of tightness – able to move with a sense of fluidity, but a unique sense of rhythm that's definitely Greenwich's own. The rest of the group here really match the spirit of his music – maybe more so than on any other record of his as a leader – a great lineup that includes Don Thompson on electric and acoustic piano, Rick Homme on bass, Terry Clarke on drums, and Clayton Johnson on percussion. All tracks are nice and long – and titles include "Peace Chant", "Lilly Lotus", "Parting", and "Starlight". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sadik HakimSadik Hakim (London Suite) ... LP
Radio Canada/Return To Analog (Canada), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the greatest moments ever from pianist Sadik Hakim – a player most people know for his contribution to the American bop scene of the late 40s – but an artist who grew even more strongly during his later years in Montreal! This album's a real highlight from that overlooked time in Hakim's career – a set that not only has the musician playing both Fender Rhodes and acoustic piano, but which also highlights his tremendous skill as a writer, too – with a richness that easily rivals the best on the European scene of the time – such as some of our favorite London jazz musicians, or the great work on MPS. Side one features the extended "London Suite" – a work that's poetic, but also pretty darn groovy too – and side two features on shorter compositions that include "Liliane", "Grey Cup Caper", and "Moon In Aquarius" – all carried off beautifully by a group that includes Al Khabyyr Sayyd Abdul on alto and flute, Billy Robinson on tenor, and Peter Leitch on guitar.

✨✧ La Revolution FrancaiseC Cool ... LP
Return To Analog (Canada), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Really revolutionary sounds from late 60s French Canada – work by ex-members of Sinners, who were more of a garagey group – taking off here into territory that really points the way towards all the newer ideas that were bubbling up in the Quebecois scene! Side two is perhaps the most striking – a side-long, 21 minute take on the title tune "C Cool" – a tune that builds slowly, has more acoustic guitar than electric, and a mix of spoken and sung vocals that's as trippy as it is compelling! Side one features shorter tunes that are maybe a bridge with the earlier generation, but still done with some great psych elements in both the guitars and production – titles that include "Ta Famille", Bingo", "Coule L'Amour", "Et La Terre Tournera", and "Pierre Paul Ladouceur".

✨✧ Les DifferentsLes Differents ... LP
Return To Analog (Canada), 1967. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Fantastic fuzz from a French Canadian combo of the 60s – one of the coolest garage bands we've ever heard from up north at the time, romping here with a style that's equal parts Sunset Strip and some of the hipper Parisian groups of the time! Lyrics are all in French, and the production has this nice sense of darkness that makes echo out of the organ lines, jangly guitar, and nice touches of fuzz – all flowing together with a style that sounds plenty magic all the way through, even if you can't always understand the lyrics. Some of the guys in the group were still teens at the time of recording, which you can hear in the youthful energy of the songs – and titles include "Je T'Aime", "Abandonne", "La Solitude", "Seul Sur Terre", "Je Ne Veux Plus", "Aimes Proudemment", and "Soyons Differents".

Les JaguarsLes Jaguars Vol 2 (clear yellow vinyl pressing) ... LP
Disques Merite/Return To Analog (Canada), Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
A record with a sexy cover and a slinky sound to match – the rare second album from the cool French instrumental combo Les Jaguars – a 60s group who start in modes that resemble American surf guitar, but really take off into some great directions of their own! The style here is familiar – bass, two guitars, and drums – but the quality of the instrumentation gets nicely complex, and opens up way past catchy themes and references to sand and surf – as the group turn in mostly original tunes throughout, and have some especially great interplay between the two guitars – at a level that might normally be carried by an additional keyboard or tenor sax. The record's a hell of an instro rocker – way more so than you'd guess from the cheesecake cover – and titles include "Tourbillon", "Guitare Cha Cha", "Melle Yeye", "Guitare Strip", "Guitare Jet", "Dors Mon Amour", and "Jaguar Shake".

Les SinnersSatan (2019 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Disques Merite/Return To Analog (Canada), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
A rare bit of Canadian psych from the start of the 70s – served up by a group with a sound that's all their own! Some numbers here are straightforward hard rockers, but others have a more complex approach – not proggy, almost performative – like some of the trippier French material of the period, which almost had a communal creation sort of vibe. There's plenty of searing guitars and very offbeat French lyrics – and the record's got a very nice sense of variety from tune to tune. Titles include "Quebec Nous T'Aimons", "Groovy", "Petite Fille T'Es Down", "OK L'Chien", "Charogne", "Heavy", and "Aux Petits Oiseux" – which is a very cool psychedelic raga that rounds out the record!

Thelonious MonkLive In Paris 1961 ... LP
Fremeaux & Associates/Return To Analog (Canada), 1961. New Copy ... $18.99
Fantastic work from Thelonious Monk – a superbly-recorded live set from early 60s Paris – done with his legendary quartet with Charlie Rouse on tenor! The music here is wonderful – tracks that are often quite long, and stretched out nicely from the Columbia Records material by the group – with especially long improvisations by Monk that really reignite our respect for his genius – and the kind of soulful solos from Rouse that are always a perfect match! The bass of John Ore is beautifully recorded too – maybe even more powerful here than usual – and Frankie Dunlop completes the group with wonderfully deft work on drums. Titles include "Well You Needn't", "Jackie-ing", "Hackensack", and "Rhythm A Ning". LP, Vinyl record album

RCA/Return To Analog (Canada), 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A hard rock gem from early 70s Canada – recorded with this cool production style that seems to push everything up around the edges, from the vocals, to the basslines, to the searing fuzzy guitars! The group do a great job of mixing in some airier numbers with the rockers – almost evoking a late Zombies/Argent vibe on some of the vocals, even though the approach is completely different – and the whole thing's a great bridge between late 60s psych and new 70s modes to come. Titles include "Freedom Train", "Today I'm Alive", "Souvenirs Of Our Days", "Time", "Hunting & Laughing", "The Friend", "One To One", "Fire Sign", and "Two Friends". LP, Vinyl record album

OctobreOctobre (tan vinyl pressing) ... LP
Return To Analog (Canada), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
An excellent prog set from the early 70s Quebec scene – work that really shows just how special that oft-overlooked world of music could be at the time! Octobre certainly have the instrumental chops to rival bigger prog groups, but they also come across with a quality that's more personal and pointed – as if they've also been influenced by some of the hipper French singer/songwriters of the late 60s, and are encouraged to put themselves forward as strongly from a lyrical mode as an instrumental one. Pierre Flynn handles the organ and electric piano – and also wrote all the songs – titles that include "Viens Vivre", "Dans Ma Ville", "Les Vivants", "Si On Partait", "Ca Prend Presque Rien", and "Au Fond Des Les Yeux".

Return To Analog (Canada), 1979. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful mix of Quebecois prog and fusion – performed here by the core group Offenbach, working with larger accompaniment from the Vic Vogel Big Band! The performance is a unique one, but also a summation of all the freewheeling ideas that were taking place in this overlooked scene – echoes of European music mixing with more homegrown execution – and coming off brilliantly throughout. This special 2LP edition features six tracks that were no on the original release, and a bonus instrumental cut too – with titles that include "A L'Envers", "Vagabond", "Sad Song", "Teddy", "High Down", "Promenade Sur Mars", and "Duke's Shuffle".

✨✧ Billy RobinsonEvolution's Blend ... LP
Radio Canada/Return To Analog (Canada), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A fantastic album from overlooked Candian tenorist Billy Robinson – a hell of a player, and one who might have been huge if this album were issued on a regular label in the US – instead of as a project by Radio Canada up north! Robinson has a wonderful vision here – gently spiritual, but in a more straight ahead way – working in this relaxed soulful combo that really sparkles with piano from Pierre Leduc and guitar from Peter Leitch – the latter of whom is a chromatic genius, in the Sonny Greenwich school – and really finds a great way to illuminate the tunes! Robinson's tone dominates, but the album's also got rock-solid rhythms from Erroll Waters on bass and Jim Norman on drums – on original tunes that include "Quebec On My Mind", "Evolution's Blend", "The Family", "It's Raining Ashes", and "Homing".

SexEnd Of My Life ... LP
Trans Canada/Return To Analog (Canada), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
The second album from Canadian hard rock legends Sex – a power trio at the core, but expanded here with some great flute and sax, the latter of which is played in both acoustic and electric modes! The sound isn't quite prog, but the songs are longer than before, and the jazzy reed work really helps give the whole thing a really great flavor – especially when electric, which can come off like a harmonica jamming along with the guitar! The changes are mighty sharp – these guys have gotten even better since their landmark debut – and titles include "Born To Love", "Syphilissia", "The End Of My Life", "Pleasure", "Emotions", and "I'm Starting My Life Today".

SexSex (clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
Trans Canada/Return To Analog (Canada), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
The debut album from this heavy Canadian power trio – a group who definitely put themselves on the line with their name – and the weird cover image of them running topless through a field! Fortunately, the sound's a lot less dated than that might make you expect – really hard-wailing in an early hard rock mode – that style that was probably brewed up in blues rock a few years before, but really set free during the psychedelic era – which makes for lots of long guitar solos from Yves Rousseau, alongside the vocals and harmonica of Serge Gratton, and the monstrous drums of Robert Trepanier. If these guys were in the UK, they might have been huge – although they unfortunately titled one of the songs on the album "I Had To Rape Her" (were they nuts?) – and that might have kept this one out of the mainstream. Other cuts include "Come Wake Up", "Night Symphony", "Love Is A Game", "Scratch My Back", and "Not Yet". Note that this reissue truncates the title of the controversial song! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Horace SilverLive In Paris 1959 ... LP
Fremeaux & Associates/Return To Analog (Canada), 1959. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful late 50s live recording from the Horace Silver Quintet – one that features some very long performances of key songs from the group's book, with some very extended solos, and a much different vibe than some of the studio versions! As with the Jazz Messengers during this time, the Silver group just couldn't miss – and they really brought something special to live performances, which could often give Horace space to be expressive in completely different ways, and the horn players a chance to state their genius even more than ever! In this case, the genius talents are Junior Cook on tenor and Blue Mitchell on trumpet – in the group with Gene Taylor on bass and Louis Hayes on drums. Titles include an 18 minute take on "Doodlin", a 12 minute take on "Senor Blues", and a long version of "Sweet Stuff". LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia/Return To Analog (Canada), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
A completely wonderful album from percussionist Guy Warren – a creative musician who made lots of great records over the years – but who maybe never topped himself after this gem from the late 60s UK scene! The set was done as part of the legendary Landsdowne Series for Columbia UK – and features Warren's percussion alongside some key Brit jazz talents – including Don Rendell on tenor and soprano saxes, Ian Carr on trumpet, Amancio D'Silva on guitar, and Michael Garrick on piano! Warren composed and arranged the whole thing, and brings in plenty of percussion too – but the album really gets its depth from the presence of these modern jazz giants – all of whom really shape the sound with wonderful contributions and some very strong solos. Titles include "Burning Bush", "I Love The Silence", "Africa Speaks India Answers", "Ours This Is Our Land", "Yaw Barima", "That Happy Feeling", and "Builsa". LP, Vinyl record album

The lyrics are sung in Quebecois French, often with a funky grit, but the longer cosmic soul instrumentals are in the driver's seat for the most part.

✨✧ My Bloody ValentineMBV (deluxe edition – with bonus download) ... LP
Domino/MBV, 2013. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A surprising return to form for My Bloody Valentine – their first album in many years, and a set that's maybe got more freak and fuzz than the last few records that preceded it! Here, the group remind us that back in the mid 80s, they were one of the first to kickstart a new wave of psychedelic exploration that so many others followed in years to come – and despite the passage of years, they maybe sound better here than we ever could have expected – almost like they took a time machine back to Alan McGee's flat, and worked out the best part of their sound from scratch – then found a way to update it in very subtle ways, but without losing their charm at all. The sonic quality of the record is superb – and titles include "If I Am", "Is This Yes & Yes", "Only Tomorrow", "She Found Now", "Wonder 2", "Nothing Is", and "In Another Way". LP, Vinyl record album
(Deluxe gatefold with tip-on sleeve – with 5 art prints and download! Quantities limited – and fully analog cut!)
