Matt BerryBlue Elephant ... CD
Acid Jazz (UK), 2021. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
The music of Matt Berry just keeps getting better and better – to a point where he's almost creating a parallel career to his work on screen – one that's equally great, but which is completely different overall! Berry brought out a wealth of vintage keyboards for the record – pulled from his huge collection – and he mixes those with subtle work on guitar, and guest drums and percussion – all in this swirling blend of sounds that really surpasses the instrumentation of any of his previous work! The set's much more instrumental than vocal – which is maybe part of the charm – and Berry's turned out to be a hell of a musician, as well as a great producer – as he manages to make the record resonate with just the right currents of contemporary psych, but without ever overindulging in that approach. At times, his command of a variety of instruments handled just by himself in the studio seems to rival the work of Sean O'Hagan – and titles include "I Cannot Speak", "Summer Sun", "Safer Passage", "Now Disappear", "Alone", "Blues Inside Me", "Like Stone", "Forget Me", and "Invisible".

Byzantium/OraHalfway Dreaming – Anthology 1969 to 1975 (Ora/Byzantium/Seasons Changing/Live Studio/bonus tracks) (5CD set) ... CD
Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 5CD ... $26.99
The complete works of Byzantium – including their rare albums for A&M, their self-released album of the mid 70s, and their initial outing as the group Ora! Ora was a wonderfully lean group – sing-songy material, handled with a mostly acoustic vibe, but not entirely folksy either. Yet the first Byzantium album is something completely different entirely – a nice set that's almost funky at times – proggy guitars, but filtered down into leaner modes that maybe mark the record as a key early effort from Chaz Jankel – who handles both the electric stings and some of the piano and organ work of the group. There's a nice balance with acoustic guitars too – and warmer harmonies at points, too – which makes for a record that's filled with overlooked surprises! Seasons Changing is excellent work from Byzantium – a group who never fully got their due, but who feature strong early guitar work from Chaz Jankel – in ways that are very different than his records of the 80s! The group show a strong understanding of the overall sound of their music - maybe the same command of the studio that later made Jankel so great – and the lead vocals of Robin Lamble and Mick Barakan trade back and forth nicely from tune to tune – often harmonized with an America-like warmth, but set up in very different song formats. Next is the much more obscure Live/Studio album – work from 1974 that the group issued themselves – and which includes some continued development of their sound, although without Jankel in the lineup. Last up is High Time which features rare live material from 1974 and 1975 – previously download-only, here on CD for the first time! 61 tracks in all, including some rare bonus material and demos – plus a nice booklet of notes.

John CaleAcademy In Peril (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Reprise/4 Men With Beards, 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $18.99 21.99
One of the coolest, most unusual albums ever from the great John Cale – a set that draws strongly on his roots in the New York underground of the mid 60s – including time spent with Tony Conrad and other experimentalists! The record is almost all instrumental – and has Cale mixing modes that include spare passages that are very evocative and contemplative, with fuller orchestral outbursts that are somewhere in the territory of his material with Terry Riley, but more freewheeling and less minimalist overall. Piano is the main instrument on many numbers, and Cale stuns us with his command of the keyboard – and the album features one striking vocal performance on the song "King Harry", alongside other titles that include "The Philosopher", "Brahms", "Legs Larry At Television Centre", "John Milton", and "Intro/Days Of Steam".

Green DayNimrod ... LP
Reprise/Rhino, 1997. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $24.99 25.98
Green Day as in command of killer hooks and stomping choruses as ever! Nimrod was bit underappreciated by longtime fans growing weary of Green Day's aging process towards the late 90s, but it's got a well earned and slowly built reputation as a fan favorite nowadays. With the formula of unapologetically appropriated craft well in place – proudly working in the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" school of pop punk – there's some pretty smart and honest vulnerability in the lyrics, with the fellas well aware that getting older doing what they do is a tricky thing to pull off. Given that they're as popular as ever deep in the next millennium, they clearly got it right! Includes "Nice Guys Finish Last", "Hitchin' A Ride", "Redundant", "All The Time", "Jinx", "Reject", "King For A Day", "Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life)" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bobby KeysBobby Keys ... CD
Warner/Wounded Bird, 1972. New Copy ... $10.99 11.99 About July 2, 2021
A really cool album from saxophonist Bobby Keys – a record with no vocals at all, just Bobby's solos – but a set that's maybe better tagged as instrumental rock than jazz, given the heavyweight guest musicians in the lineup! Keys blows with an all-star array of talent from the rock scene of the time – including Jack Bruce and Felix Pappalardi on bass, Leslie West and Dave Mason on guitars, Nicky Hopkins on keyboards, and Ringo Starr on drums – plus a bit more guitar from George Harrison, too! Yet what's great about the record is that all these talents put aside their ego and follow Bobby's lead – in a groove that's maybe a bit southern soul, a bit down-home rock – with some definite currents of Memphis and Muscle Shoals in the music. Titles include "Crispy Duck", "Steal From A King", "Bootleg", "Smokefoot", "Altar Rock", "Command Performance", and "Sound & Foam". CD

✨✧ Makoto KubotaMachibouke ... LP
Universal (Japan), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A beautiful little record from the Japanese scene of the 70s – a set that shows the growing influence of the American singer/songwriter world, but at a point before things hit the more polished mode of the city pop generation! Makoto Kubota has this nicely dark style to his work – almost like the moodier moments of Paul Simon (and we mean that in sound, not in language – as our command of Japanese is terrible.) Most numbers have acoustic guitar as the core instrument, next to some nice dark-tinged lyrics – but almost always augmented with subtle arrangements that really expand on the mood of the songs. Makoto plays both standard acoustic guitar, and steel guitar – and there's nice use of electric piano and organ from time to time. Most titles are in Japanese, but English tunes include "Poor Boy" and "Make Love Co". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Gayle McCormickGayle McCormick ... LP
Dunhill, 1971. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
The first of just a few albums of sweet, early 70s pop and a little bit of blue eyed soul from Gayle McCormick – and obscure singer with a commanding voice and who probably could have ruled the 70s pop landscape with a twist of fate or two! Gayle shows some soul and has a little bit of Dusty Springfield in her voice, over some arrangements that grow just large enough – with heavy drums, horns, and organ at the core and some strings and female backing vocals in the more soaring moments. The best bits are pretty irresistible! Titles include "It's A Crying Shame", "C'est La Vie", groovy covers like "Superstar", "A Natural Woman" and "Rescue Me", plus "Save Me", "Gonna Be Alright" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a small cutout hole.)

✨✧ NirvanaMTV Unplugged In New York ... CD
Geffen, 1994. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Nirvana's classic session for MTV's Unplugged – slowing down the tempo and stripping away the feedback and squalling electric guitars of their early 90s classics – as well as showing Kurt Cobain's command of cover tunes! This is a set that blew expectations right out of the water. It shows the essence of the great Cobain songwriting, as well has his gift for interpreting others – drawing parallels from Bowie, The Meat Puppets to traditional folk and blues. Amazing! Includes "About A Girl", "The Man Who Sold The World", "Where Did You Sleep Last Night", "Lake Of Fire", "All Apologies", "Dumb", "Polly" and more. CD

VariousTen Commandments Of Rock & Roll – Commandment 4 – Show Affection/Come On & Love Me ... CD
Atomicat, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 12.99
A searing set of tracks that uphold the commandments of rock and roll – but which might also make you break some of the Lord's commandments as well! The tracks here are all raw, gritty, and grooving – the mix of early rockers, R&B, and other late 50s styles we love from these Atomicat collections – presented without much in the way of notes, but packing plenty in the socking set list of 30 tunes on the CD! Titles include "Laurie Anne" by Glen Glenn, "Don't Burn Me Up" by Ray Ellington, "Mama Doll" by Roy Teo, "Liza Jane" by Dale Hawkins, "Steppin Out" by The Flairs, "Yes I'm Gonna Love You" by Sonny Anderson, "Little Jewel" by Tommy Jim Beam & The Four Fifths, "Short Fat Ben" by Phil Barclay & The Sliders, "Pretty Baby What's Your Name" by The Mellows, "I Ain't Givin Up Nothin" by Priscilla Bowman, and "Come On & Love Me" by The Champions.
