AtmosphereYou Can't Imagine The Fun We're Having (10th Anniversary edition – 4LP colored vinyl set) ... LP
Rhymesayers, 2005. New Copy 4LP (reissue)... $39.99 42.98
Atmosphere's hard-hitting, tightly-focused You Can't Imagine How Much Fun We're Having – one of their best records ever – given a richly deserved anniversary edition with the original LP and instrumentals in a 4LP box set! Tracks like the opener "The Arrival", "Panic Attack" (a blistering affront to an over-prescribed populace) and "Bam" hit hard with Ant's gritty soul and rock beats and Slug's busy, in the pocket rhymes, and find these guys working tightly as a singular force with a mesmerizing intensity. Lyrics-wise, this record is a pretty remarkable step up – and a peak effort for Atmosphere and the Rhymesayers label. Other titles include "Watch Out", "Smart Went Crazy", "Musical Chairs", "Angelface", "Get Fly" and "Little Man". The original 2LP record and complete instrumentals – 4LPs and absolutely deserves the lavish anniversary treatment! LP, Vinyl record album
(4LP green & red colored vinyl – with the complete original LP and instrumentals – plus lyrics and download. Limited to 5000 copies.)

Roman DiazL'O Da Fun Bata ... CD
Motema, 2015. New Copy ... $11.99 14.98
A very rootsy set of Cuban bata – and a record that almost feels like a vintage session for Folkways than some of the more contemporary music on the Motema label! The album's got a strong Yoruba bend – and features spoken passages between most of the percussive tracks – introducing different deities, who are then supported through highly spiritual performance that mixes chanted vocals with percussion by Roman and his group – with no other instrumentation at all! The notes put both the music and the references in the right sort of cultural perspective – and titles include "Agayu", "Oggun", "Elegua", "Oshun", "Shango", and "Obatala". CD

Dave FrishbergGetting Some Fun Out Of Life ... CD
Concord, 1977. Used ... $3.99
Dave Frishberg's always getting some fun out of life – given the way he pens these witty little tunes, and sings them with a hell of a lot of charm! And this album's one to feature Frishberg at all his charming best – still with the jaunty, edgey qualities we love so much in Oaklahoma Toad, but turned back more towards more traditional jazz elements too – all set nicely into a small combo jazz mode, with help from Bob Findley on trumpet and Marshall Royal on alto – both horn players who give the album a fleshed-out feel that's a nice change from some of Dave's more piano/vocal-based records. A number of the tunes are instrumental – with Frishberg on piano – and titles include "Lotus Blossom", "Dear Bix", "Violet Blue", "Old Man Harlem", "Save It Pretty Mama", "Alligator Crawl", and "In A Mist".

StoogesFun House ... LP
Elektra, 1970. Very Good ... $39.99
The Stooges second and best album – and one of the greatest rock albums ever! On Fun House Iggy & the Ashetons took what essentially started as blues-based guitar skronk, set it on fire and shot it straight into the stratosphere. As if the instrumental maelstrom wasn't enough, Iggy's suicidal junky growl adds the terrifying edge that seals the album's reputation in the rock pantheon. A free rock/noise masterpiece if there ever was one – so much better than any of the 80s/90s/00s followers/imitators could ever drum up! Includes the tracks "Down On The Street", "Loose", "TV Eye", "Dirt", "1970", "Fun House" and "LA Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

Billy TaylorOne For Fun ... LP
Atlantic, 1959. Very Good+ ... $14.99
It might not be the frolic that the title implies, but that's a plus – because this a straight-up solid early album from Taylor – recorded in tight trio format, with that no-nonsense soulful approach that made him a star player from the start! The group features the great (and underrated) Earl May on bass and Kenny Dennis on drums – both of whom help Taylor work some simple magic that flowers wonderfully as the album moves on. There's a tight, sharp, in the pocket groove here that makes Taylor a key precursor for other piano talents to come in the 60s – and titles include "When Lights Are Low", "At Long Last Love", "Poinciana", "Blue Moon", "One For Fun", and "A Little Southside Soul".

Van HuntFun Rises The Fun Sets ... CD
Godless Hotspot, 2015. New Copy ... $11.99 12.99
The fun never sets when Van Hunt's around – especially given the fresh sound of this sweet little album! There's a crispy, gritty approach that's a bit different than Van Hunt's previous work – a way of bringing up the basslines and drums, while also dropping the singer's voice down into the mix a bit more – so that there's this kind of swirl of rhythm and lyrics together, which makes for a really unique groove! The sound is neither broken beat, nor 70s funk – but seems to draw plenty of inspiration from both – and the setting's really helped us get back into Van Hunt's music, especially as it's been a few years since we last heard from him – plenty of time for the singer to plot this great step forward from his previous album, What Were You Hoping For? Titles include "Headroom", "French For Cloud", "Teach Me A New Language", "Old Hat", "She Stays With Me", "A Woman Never Changes", and "Emotional Criminal". CD

FarmInnermost Limits Of Pure Fun – A George Greenough Film ... CD
Sundazed, 1969. New Copy ... On February 26, 2016
A really tripped-out surf soundtrack from the end of the 60s – and a record that shows a huge evolution in the surf genre from the more familiar hits of the earlier part of the decade! The style here is much more open-ended and jamming – a collaborative effort that almost sounds like improvised grooves at times – played on organ, guitar, bass, and drums, all recorded by drummer Dennis Dragon. Denny Aaberg is on guitar and a bit of vocals – and a few numbers have an earthy, down-home feel that's a contrast to the more open-ended jams. Titles include "Snake Charmer", "Crystal Shingles", "Animal", "Wind N Sea", "Crumple Car", "Tobie's Oats", "San Ho Zay", "Ground Shuffle", and "Innerspace". CD also features a bonus Quicktime movie with a Farm interview. CD

John Barry/Elephant's Memory/The Groop/NilssonMidnight Cowboy ... LP
United Artists, 1969. Very Good- ... $3.99
A sublime soundtrack from John Barry – common, to be sure, but also a wonderfully-crafted set that goes way beyond the stereotypes of his work for the James Bond films! The record is probably best known for Nilsson's famous version of the Fred Neil tune "Everybody's Talkin" – which is great in itself – but it's Barry's own work on the title theme that we totally love. "Midnight Cowboy" is a darkly turning slowly pondering tune that will haunt us until the day we die – performed here on the original number with a sad-tinged harmonica that unites both the country of Joe Buck's roots and the sleaze of the love generation. The tune's great – and is matched here by the whimsy of "Florida Fantasy", and the Barry tracks "Fun City" and "Science Fiction". Another great number on the set is "Old Man Willow", a really tripped-out longer track from Elephant's Memory – swirling around in organ and hippie vocals, and oddly echoing the main Barry theme of the set at times!

Les Baxter/Mike Curb/The 13th PowerWild In The Streets ... LP
Tower, Late 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $4.99
Hilarious! This is the soundtrack to a goofy late 60s shocker film about the time when hippies and young folks would take over America. Les Baxter handled the musical score for the film, but the real treat is the schlocky rock tracks – written by Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil, with arrangements by Mike Curb in that fuzzy Tower/AIP mode! The lyrics are hysterical, but also oddly catchy, even though they're trying to make fun of 60s rock. Titles include "Psychedelic Senate", "Fourteen Or Fight", "Wild In The Streets", "Sally LeRoy", and "Free Lovin". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ BrickBrick ... LP
Bang, 1977. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Classic work from Brick – a group who went onto become surprisingly successful during the 70s with a hot Atlanta blend of funky soul and uptempo club grooves – absolutely killing it early on with this self-titled second album! Brick has a feel that would be taken up heavily a few years later by LA funk combos – particularly those on the Solar label – and their style of slicking up funky licks into a tightly compressed sound was obviously a big hit with the kids of their generation. Includes the sample classic "Dusic", plus "Living From The Mind", "Happy", "Ain't Gonna Hurt Nobody", "Honey Chile", Fun", "Hello" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

CameoCameosis/Feel Me ... CD
Casablanca/Robinsongs (UK), 1980. New Copy ... $13.99
A pair of killers from Cameo – back to back on a single CD! Cameosis is full-on frenetic funk from Cameo – one of the group's tightest albums, yet still without any of the too-slick sounds of later years! The sound here is amazing – and we always find ourselves wondering how a group of guys can hit such perfect grooves with just a bunch of basses, guitars, and keyboards – a totally on-the-money style that vamps, leaps, and jumps with energy throughout. The vocals are great too – bubbling up in the mix almost like another instrument – and the album's got a depth that so many other copycat funk records from the time just couldn't touch. Wonderful throughout – with tracks that include "Shake Your Pants", "Cameosis", "On The One", "We're Goin Out Tonight", and "Please You". Also features a bonus 7" mix of "Shake Your Pants". Feel Me is a great 80s groove from Cameo – but one that's still done in the group's best early funk ensemble mode! There's maybe a bit more emphasis on the basslines and keyboards than before, but the sound of the music is still wonderfully full and spontaneous – very much in keeping with the warmly collaborative look of the group on the cover, who really sound like they're having a hell of a lot of fun making the record! The rhythms have a razor-sharpness that just about nobody else can touch – and there's all these cool little instrumental flourishes that sneak into the mix and really keep things interesting – odd sounds on familiar instruments, moogy moments on keyboards, and even some vocal inflections that come as a nice surprise. There's two nice mellow cuts – "Feel Me" and "Is This The Way", which have a sweetly compressed harmony sound on the lyrics – and funky numbers include "Better Days", "Keep It Hot", "Roller Skates", and "Is This The Way".

✨✧ Stanley ClarkeModern Man ... LP
Columbia/Nemperor, 1978. Near Mint- ... $2.99
A bit more high concept than before for Stanley Clarke – almost a suite of sorts, but one that still has some great standout tunes in the mix! Although Clarke used to bring his higher concepts to bear in the space of a single song, this one's more of a full exploration of the character in the title – served up at the best moments with more soul than on previous albums from Stanley, some nicely tuneful tracks that almost get a bit funky at points. There's a bit of vocals on the record – courtesy of Dee Dee Bridgewater and others – and guests include Freddie Hubbard, Stan Getz, Harvey Mason, Tom Scott, and Airto. Titles include "More Hot Fun", "Slow Dance", "He Lives On", "Dayride", "Got To Find My Own Place", "Closing Statement", and "A Serious Occasion". LP, Vinyl record album

George ClintonComputer Games ... CD
Capitol (Japan), 1982. New Copy ... $13.99
Great post-Parliafunkadelicment work from George Clinton – surely the biggest hit of his albums for Capitol – especially since it features the singles "Atomic Dog" and "Loopzilla"! We'll be honest in saying that at the time this one came out, as die-hard Detroit funk fans, we remember thinking "oh gosh, George has lost it" – but from the perspective of many years later, the record sure sounds like classic P-Funk to us – really picking up where the last few Funkadelic and Parliament albums left off! The album sports a great Pedro Bell cover, features some nice work with Bootsy, includes the hits "Atomic Dog" and "Loopzilla" – and also features some lesser-known gems that include "Pot Sharing Tots", "Get Dressed", "Computer Games", and "One Fun At A Time".

Joe Cuba SextetBang! Bang! Push! Push! Push! ... LP
Tico, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A Latin classic from the word "bang"! This album was the one that busted Joe Cuba out of the Latin ghetto – into the sound of 60s soul, early funk, and beyond. The record's a stone winner – filled with boogaloo tracks delivered by Joe's firey young sextet, a killer ensemble that was setting the Latin world on its ear at the time. The title track – "Bang Bang" – is one of those tracks that you'll recognize from a million references, but which never sounds as good as it does on this impeccable version from Joe. The whole album follows in a similar suit – blending Latin, jazz, and soul with effortless ease – shifting between English and Spanish lyrics in a genre-busting style that really captures all the freshness of the era. The whole thing's great, and titles include "Asi Soy", "Alafia", "Triste", "Mujer Divina", "Oh Yeah", "Sock It To Me", and the "Bang Bang" follow-up, "Push, Push, Push". Great, hard, and a heck of a lot of fun! LP, Vinyl record album

Danger DoomMouse And The Mask (10th anniversary edition) ... CD
Lex, 2005. New Copy (reissue)... $15.99 16.98
You guessed it. Danger Mouse and MF Doom together – and also a collaboration with the writers and voice talent of Cartoon Network's Adult Swim block of programming circa the mid 00s! The dangerous duo make room for appearances by Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Space Ghost, Brak, Zorak, Harvey Birdman, the Sealab 2021 team and the Mooninites – plus live action characters Ghostface, Talib Kweli and Cee-Lo. Basically, you can look at the project as a crass, college age market research driven coup and an affront to classic hip hop – or you can look at it as sort of a less pretentious Gorillaz. We're rollin with the latter, and it's a helluva lot more fun, too!! DM's and Doom's styles compliment each other as well as Doom's and Madlib's – and the participation of Adult Swim makes this one of the few hip hop albums in which you actually look forward to the skits! One question, though. Where is Schoolly D? Tracks include "Sofa King", "ATHF", Mince Meat", "Old School" feat Talib Kweli, "Bizzy Box" feat Cee-Lo, "Space Hos" and more. CD

Stephen DavisLZ 75 – Lost Chronicles Of Led Zeppelin's 1975 American Tour ... Book
Fourth Estate (UK), 2011. New Copy ... $5.99 14.99
The author of Hammer Of The Gods – which some say is the definitive book on Led Zeppelin – takes a look at the group's famous 1975 tour of America – a time when both Led Zeppelin and arena rock were at the height of their power! Stephen Davis was one of an elite few to travel with the group during the tour – and writes here from his special backstage access – not just to the shows, but the group's trials and travels across the US. The style is relatively personal – Davis isn't out to write a complete history here, just illuminate this famous tour – but that's also what makes it great – as the whole thing's almost got a cinematic presentation of the material. Not the deepest reading you'll ever do, but plenty of fun overall – and the 217 page book also features a fair bit of black and white photos too. Book

An amazing collection of 40s and 50s jazz drawings by Gene Deitch – the complete anthology of his work for legendary jazz magazine Record Changer! Gene was an amazing artist and cartoonist, whose work helped solidify the legacies of some of the most famous cartoon characters in the American pop culture canon – from Popeye, to Tom & Jerry and beyond – but we're especially in love with his jazz-centric Record Changer era! Gene adored jazz and his love for it really shows! Cat On A Hot Thin Groove includes all of his magazine covers, cartoon panels and other bits from Record Changer – versatile work that ranges from fun, cartoon-y panels of "Jazz Cat" characters, to more elaborate and abstract illustrations. Wonderful, vital stuff – and it's very nicely anthologized here by Fantagraphics! Coffee-table scale paperback – 160+ pages of prime Deitch jazzy drawings with text accompaniment. Book

Paul Desmond doesn't get any better than this – blowing his icy cool alto next to warm guitar lines from the mighty Jim Hall – a classic RCA Records pairing in jazz, heard to great effect on this classic album! There's a slight bossa groove to some of the rhythms, which is great for Desmond's sound – and the backing is also free of piano, so the guitar and alto hang together wonderfully by themselves – suspended in space, dipping and turning around each other beautifully! The pair get some very light rhythmic accompaniment from Connie Kay on drums, and either Percy Heath or Gene Wright on bass – on titles that include "That Old Feeling", "Easy Living", "Blues For Fun", "Polka Dots & Moonbeams", and "When Joanna Loved Me".

One of the more unusual artists on the Philly-revival label Society Hill – a singer who's younger than most of their roster, and who also has roots in the Caribbean too! Production and arrangements are by Butch Ingram, who gives the set a similar modern soul update to other projects for the label – but there's a slight difference in the rhythms, which have a fair bit of tropical currents – although still more in a soul mode than dancehall or soca. Titles include "Rock Steady", "Cherish The Day", "Say I Love You", "Mama See Parade", "Fun Fun Fun", "A Nice Girl Like You", and a remake of "Right Place Wrong Time". CD

Donald EdwardsEvolution Of An Influenced Mind ... CD
Criss Cross (Netherlands), 2014. Used ... $9.99
The title's a bit obtuse, but it also really gets at the vibe of the record, too – a great progression of individualistic jazz – inspired by previous generations, but voiced in a really fresh way by this combo led by drummer Donald Edwards! The approach is more open and varied than usual for a session on the Criss Cross label – from the initial spiritual passage of "American Drum Call To Mama", to David Gilmore's guitar atmospherics on "Niecee", to the richness of the album's original compositions. Gilmore's sense of color and phrasing really balance wonderfully with the tenor of Walter Smith – and Orrin Evans' piano is at its most melodically complex as well. The record opens up in so many ways, but still also finds plenty of room to swing, too – on titles that include "The Dream", "Dock's House", "The Essential Passion", "Nightmare Of Fun", and "Culmination For Now".

Foreign ExchangeTales From The Land Of Milk & Honey (colored vinyl) ... LP
HBD, 2015. New Copy 2LP ... $23.99 24.98
The deepest work yet from Foreign Exchange – and as hard as it is for us to believe, a record that unofficially kicks off the second decade of the one-time transatlantic partnership of Nicolay and Phonte – which has evolved into a bonafide indie soul supergroup with Zo!, Tamisha Waden and Carmen Rodgers! Tales From The Land Of Milk And Honey is as full of life as anything we've heard from them, and honestly, a record we'll be able to keep coming back to for years. On the production front, Nicolay has found a way to pay homage to the past half century of breezy soul and R&B, club grooves, bossa and more, and distill it all into a fairly tight sound that belongs to FE+. Phonte is as vocally charismatic on his cuts as ever, whether he's playing it straight, or just having a little bit of fun – like when he's affecting a British accent on "Asking For A Friend" – and the women's voices are never less than beautiful, on both the lead vocal turns and the hooks. Includes "Milk And Honey", "Work It To The Top", "Truce", "Disappear", "Sevenths And Ninths", "Asking ForA Friend", "Body", "As Fast As You Can", "Face In The Reflection" and "Until The Dawn (Milk And Honey Pt II)".

A classic album of all-out soul from Herbie Hancock – done in close collaboration with Rod Temperton of Heatwave – in a jazzy-styled version of that group's own great groove! Temperton handled arrangements and a lot of songwriting, and most cuts have lead vocals from Wayne Anthony – who does a nice job with the lyrics, but still leaves Herbie some space for keyboard solos too – in a groove that's a fair bit warmer than some of the other keyboard-heavy soul records of the time. Production is by Narada Michael Walden, Herbie, and Jay Graydon – and titles include the jazzy stepping gem "Getting To The Good Part", plus "Lite Me Up", "The Bomb", "Can't Hide Your Love", "The Fun Tracks", and "Motor Mouth".

CBS/PTG (Netherlands), 1982. New Copy ... $18.99
A classic album of all-out soul from Herbie Hancock – done in close collaboration with Rod Temperton of Heatwave – in a jazzy-styled version of that group's own great groove! Temperton handled arrangements and a lot of songwriting, and most cuts have lead vocals from Wayne Anthony – who does a nice job with the lyrics, but still leaves Herbie some space for keyboard solos too – in a groove that's a fair bit warmer than some of the other keyboard-heavy soul records of the time. Production is by Narada Michael Walden, Herbie, and Jay Graydon – and titles include the jazzy stepping gem "Getting To The Good Part", plus "Lite Me Up", "The Bomb", "Can't Hide Your Love", "The Fun Tracks", and "Motor Mouth". CD features a bonus track – "Lite Me Up (12" mix)". CD
