✨✧ 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.

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.
