Miles DavisWater Babies ... CD
Columbia, 1967. New Copy ... $4.99 6.99
A much different album than you might expect from the cover – hardly the funky 70s set implied by the Big Fun-styled cover – and instead a lost slice of work from his groundbreaking late 60s years! The set was recorded in 1967, but unissued until Miles late 70s time away from the ... read more CD

Acid Symposium, 1972. New Copy ... $4.99
An insanely wonderful bit of Latin funk! The groove is super heavy, and falls somewhere in between NuYorican soul and Chicano Power rock – with a sound that's pretty close to Black Sugar, but a little bit more psychedelic, due to the heavy guitars and keyboards in the grooves. Hard congas ... read more CD

Starday/Nashville, 1960s. New Copy ... $2.99 9.98
One of the coolest entries in the Starday Records series of truck-themed collections in the 60s – partly because this one features material by just a small core of artists, and also because there's a fair bit of bluegrass in the mix as well!

Atlantic/Wounded Bird, 1964. New Copy ... $3.99 11.98
The title's a bit misleading, because while the 3 groups on the session are all quartets, they're hardly similar in the associative way the record assumes!
