One of the more far out-sounding records we've heard on Far Out Records – a wild one from Rio's Dos Cafundos! It's a sometimes funky, sometimes noisy, but always evolving sound – with raw tropical funk mixed with diverse strains of noise rock and jazz, a la Zorn and Zappa. It's never ... (Brazil) read moreCD

The "new" thing here is that Kenny's playing with horns – always a refreshing change from his trio sides, and a setting that really brings out an edgier side to his playing.

We like to view this album as the turning point for the Dub Syndicate, where they fell more under the guidance of Style Scott than Adrian Sherwood, and added former Sugarhill studio band member Skip McDonald into the fold, who'd influence their sound pretty heavily over the next couple of LPs. ...

One of George Duke's best albums for the MPS label – and a set that has a sound that's a little bit more soul than before! The album uses a fair bit of vocals alongside Duke's funky keyboards – but in a way that's not nearly as smooth as some of his albums for Epic, and which still ... (Jazz) read moreCD

One of the most incredible rock albums of all time – Dylan's sprawling, shambling, poetic genius at its most revolutionary if you ask us – the landmark Blonde On Blonde!

Excellent 70s soul from the great Ronnie Dyson – first famous as a singer in the original cast of Hair, but later a soul star in his own right, with a few massive hits that brought him big fame!

A loungey gem from Irma!
