Lester Bowie's Brass FantasySerious Fun ... CD
DIW (Japan), 1989. New Copy ... $16.99 24.99
One of our favorite albums from Lester Bowie's big solo run of the 80s – and a set that has some of the more dynamic energy of his Brass Fantasy group, but maybe also a bit more depth as well! The album's part of a handful that the Art Ensemble Of Chicago did with the DIW label at the time – and the AEOC production maybe gives the record a slightly more serious sound – even though the group still take on material from James Brown, Sade, and EU! Yet there's also two Billie Holiday tributes that are surprisingly powerful, and a stunning version of Roland Kirk's "The Inflated Tear" – with a strong trombone solo from Steve Turre, who worked with Kirk in later years, and always championed his work. The lineup features Bowie, Stanton Davis, EJ Allen, and Gerald Brezel on trumpets; Turre and Frank Lacy on trombones; Vincent Chancey on French horn; and Bob Stewart on tuba – plus drums and percussion from Don Moye, Ken Cruchfield, and Vinnie Johnson. Titles include "Inflated Tear", "Smooth Operator", "Strange Fruit", "Don't Worry Be Happy", "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag", and "Da Butt". CD

Roman DiazL'O Da Fun Bata ... CD
Motema, 2015. New Copy ... $8.99 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

FarmInnermost Limits Of Pure Fun – A George Greenough Film ... CD
Sundazed, 1969. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
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

✨✧ Kim FowleyGood Clean Fun ... LP
Imperial, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $34.99
Awesome work from madman Kim Fowley – an album that offers hard rockers, some nice groovers, and even some trippier tracks that feature spoken or performed bits! The record's got a really wonderful approach that's a look at the lost genius of the LA scene of the late 60s – emphasized by an appearance on the record by Rodney Bingeheimer, the mayor of Sunset Strip, plus work by Motorcycle John and the Frog Prince! If you've ever heard about Fowley, but never found the record to truly convey his insanity on record, this is the one to check out – as it's as brilliant as it is insane! Titles include "Energy", "Baby Rocked Her Dolly", "Motorcycle", "One Man Band", "Good Clean Fun", "Search For A Teenage Woman", "I'm Not Young Anymore", "Lights The Blind & Lame Can See", and "Kangaroo".

Dave FrishbergLookin' Good (Getting Some Fun Out Of Life/Let's Eat Home) ... CD
Concord, 1977/1990. Used 2 CDs ... $6.99
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".

StoogesHave Some Fun – Live At Ungano's ... CD
Rhino Handmade/Wounded Bird, 1970. New Copy ... $10.99 11.99
Raw, incendiary live material from The Stooges, circa 1970 – recorded at NYC dive bar Ungano's, right around the time that Fun House was released! They blast through nearly all the tracks from Fun House here, minus "LA Blues", and with the rare "Have Some Fun/My Dream Is Dead", which as far as we know, was never released before Rhino Handmade dug up this incredible recording. The source was a reel-to-reel capture by someone in the audience, so the sound is a bit rough – which is of little concern when what we have here is a really important building block in creation of punk rock! Plus, the whole thing also begins with "Going To Ungano's" – street conversation that makes you feel like you're outside, going into the show. CD

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

XMore Fun In The New World ... LP
Elektra, 1983. Very Good+ ... $9.99
The last true masterpiece by the greatest rock band to ever come out of the late 70s and early 80s L.A. scene. More Fun In The New World serves in a lot of ways as X's upright middle finger to the early years of the Reagan era, with the anthemic opener "The New World", and the ballad "I Must Not Think Bad Thoughts", perfectly encapsulating the fear and loathing brought about by the ridiculous politics that infected the entire decade. The album is very much a sequel to the amazing Under The Big Black Sun, full of razor pop anthems, Billy Zoom's punkabilly guitar acrobatics, and amazing depth thanks to John and Exene's sensitive and perceptive song writing. Awesome! Other tracks include "True Love", "We're Having Much More Fun", "Poor Girl", "Make The Music Go Bang", "Devil Doll", "Painting The Town Blue", "Hot House", "Drunk In My Past", "I See Red", and "True Love Part 2".

✨✧ Davie Allan & The ArrowsWild Angels Vol 2 – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Tower, Late 60s. Very Good ... $5.99
Davie Allan & The Arrows' second album of music for the Wild Angels series of biker films – and even better than the first! This set features an all-Arrows set of tracks – with only one vocal number, and all the rest instrumentals, done in that tripped-out, souped-up style that Davie used with the group. The vocal on the main theme is great – but other numbers are even better, and feature some nice touches, like the crowd noises and talking on the track "Wild Orgy"! Other tunes include "The Last Ride", "Makin Love Is Fun", "Arriba", "The Loser's Burial", and "Wild Angels Chase". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ BadbadnotgoodIV ... CD
Innovative Leisure, 2016. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
Badbadnotgood have always been pretty damn great, actually – and never better than on album IV – a remarkable step forward for the group! As ever, they take inspiration from some of the best prog, jazz, funk (and proggy jazz funk...they blend) of the 70s and beyond, but weave it into fairly distinctive and genuinely fun modern sound. It's built to last, too –we're sure be able to come back to their work in a couple decades and it'll still work! IV finds them with the confidence to trade in some fairly subtle, smoothed out moments between to more boisterous ones, and they're more dexterous in the instrumentation – especially in the horns, keys and percussion – but some great vibes, strings, flute and more when the mood calls. Includes the great vocal track "Time Moves Slow" with Sam Herring of Future Islands, "And That, Too", "Lavender", "IV", "Chompy's Paradise", "Structure No. 3", "Cashmere", "Hyssops Of Love" and more.

Beach BoysShut Down Vol 2 ... LP
Capitol, 1964. Very Good- ... $19.99
The Beach Boys' installment in Capitol's hot rod-themed Shut Down series – the first edition of which was devoted to a host of different artists! It's clear that even in this setting, The Beach Boys have way more to offer than just a few gimmicky car songs – as the record offers some of the early group's most tender, personal moments – real early gems like "The Warmth Of The Sun" and "Don't Worry Baby" - mixed in with more playful numbers like "Fun Fun Fun", "This Car Of Mine", "In The Parkin Lot", "Shut Down Part 2", and "Keep An Eye On Summer". It's this mix that really gets at the group's genius at the time – maturity creeping out amidst the youthful themes, in ways that few other 60s acts could ever hope to match. LP, Vinyl record album

Steve BlackVillage Boogie ... CD
PMG (Austria), 1979. New Copy ... $18.99
An album that definitely lives up to its title – thanks to a strong embrace of funky boogie styles, but served up here with a sweet Nigerian twist! Some cuts are heavy funk right from the start – clearly inspired by Kool & The Gang and other sharp-edged American groups of the 70s – while others have a slightly looser rhythmic approach, but one that still grooves nicely, too – all given some great energy by the vocals of Steve Black, whose style of singing is nicely playful, and almost as bubbling as the instrumentation! The title track has this really cool mix of electronics and dub – and titles include "Brand New Wayo", "Igholoye", "Precious Tim", "Village Boogie", "When You Know What's Wrong", "Fun In The Street", and "Step Out When You're Down".

Pretty, sweeping, grandly orchestrated yet immediate and instantly gratifying psych tinged girl pop from the late 60s – the first album from beautiful, Netherlands bred singer Boujoura – wonderful stuff smartly produced to have a huge, yet impossibly bright and fun sound! George Kooymans of Golden Earring(s) co-wrote a bunch of the songs, and the production is a mix of large scale grandeur with raw drums and punchy brass and strings, kinda the best of both worlds! Titles include "I Can't Stop Rambling", "Watch What You Try To Do", "For Baby", "Dream Man", "Mr Magic", "Hampstead Incident", "Where Are You", 'That's How Strong My Love Is" and more. CD

BrickGood High/Brick (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Bang/Robinsongs (UK), 1976/1977. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99
Two funky soul classics from Brick – back to back on a single CD! First up is the album Good High – a killer debut from Brick – the start of a massive run at the end of the 70s, a time when the group was easily one of the biggest acts to come out of the up-and-coming Atlanta scene! Like some other Atlanta acts of the time, Brick had a way of fusing older funky soul on a tighter modern groove – coming up with a sound that was nice and lean – perfect for these key transitional years of funk – with influences that were felt for years, in places as far away as the west coast! Case in point is the album's classic "Dazz" – one of those cuts that never gets old – nestled nicely in a lineup that also includes "Music Matic", "Here We Come", "Good High", "Brick City", and "Sister Twister". Includes two bonus tracks "Dazz (Dazz Disco mix)" & "That's What It's All About (single version)". Next up is the self-titled Brick – which has the group absolutely killing it 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. This CD edition on Wounded Bird has 2 bonus tracks: "Ain't Gonna Hurt Nobody (Single Version)" and "Dusic (Short Version)". CD

BT Express1980 (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Roadshow/Octave (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... $22.99
One of the greatest albums ever from BT Express – tighter, smoother, and classier than the group's early funky disco sessions – and with a cosmic sound that shows them really growing at the time! The sound here steps off from both the group's own horn-heavy disco sides of the 70s, and from the more righteous ensemble funk work of the Earth Wind & Fire generation – and there's also a nice undercurrent of the snapping midtempo rhythms that would show up even later in the early 80s indie club scene. Funk is still very much a part of the BT Express sound – and even when coming together like an all-pro outfit, the group are still hitting hard on the rhythms and well-crafted guitar parts. A wonderful record throughout – the kind of late session that could easily be overlooked, but which represents some of the group's best work! Titles include "Takin' Off", "Does It Feel Good", "Closer", "Better Late Than Never", and "Have Some Fun". CD features lots of bonus tracks – including "Midnight Beat", "Let Me Be The One", "Does It Feel Good (orig promo 12" version)", "Give Up The Funk (original single)", "Have Some Fun (original single version)", and "Better Late Than Never (original single version)".

Epitaph/Anti, 2007. Used ... $5.99
Busdriver's most high profile set yet – the intelligently hyper MC's debut for Anti-/Epitaph! RoadKillOvercoat pushes his ouvre a bit more into experimental electronic territory – albeit with smart (if eccentric) vocals that are both rhymed and sung. Busdriver keeps at least one foot grounded in world weary lyricism, calling out hippies, hipsters and hypocrites – even if the catchy beatcraft suggests a sunnier groove. Titles include "Casting Agents And Cowgirls", "Less Yes's More No's", "Kill Your Employer", "Ethereal Driftwood", "Secret Skin", "Sun Shower", "Go Slow" feat Bianca Casady, "The Troglodyte Wins", "Pompous Posies! Your Party's No Fun", "(Bloody Paw On The) Kill Floor" and "Dream Catcher's Mit". CD

Johnny first album collaboration with his soon-to-be wife June Carter, and it's a nice one! Carryin' On has it's share of sweet, lovely moments shared by the two, but also has a lot more cool 60s oddball touches than one would expect. The couple cover Dylan's "It Ain't Me Babe" and two Ray Charles tunes, "I Got A Woman" and "What I Say". All three sound pretty strange coming out of hard-nosed Johnny, and prove to be quite fun and endearing, and very indicative of the freedom he had at Columbia to do whatever the heck he wanted. Other tracks include "Shantytown", "Pack Up Your Sorrows", "Jackson", "What A Good Thing We Had", and "No, No, No". Includes two bonus tracks from the sessions, and new liner notes by old pal Carl Perkins. CD

25 years of French disco collide as one – as house genius Bob Sinclar remixes the legendary late 70s work of Cerrone! Cerrone's work from the late 70s and early 80s was some of the best club music coming out of Europe at the time – and he virtually pioneered the extended slow-building grooves that would later have such an influence on house music during the 80s. The album features original Cerrone tracks and remixed versions – done by the likes of Sinclar, Liquid People, Modjo, Donray, and Johnny D – all blended together in one superparty of disco grooves, as sparkling and hard driving as Sinclar's own work! Titles include "Music Of Life", "Give Me Love (house mix)", "Supernature", "Roller Coaster", "Cerrone's Paradise", "Assassinat", "Standing In The Rain", "Striptease", and "Kongas Fun". CD

Miles DavisComplete On The Corner Sessions (6CD set) ... CD
Columbia/Legacy, 1972/1975. Used 6CDs ... $189.99
Right On! Quite possibly the heaviest, baddest music ever laid to tape, this set offers up over 6 hours of some of the deepest, darkest free jazz, afro funk, fist in the air post-modern musique concrete to sprout from Miles' horn and crew! This box closes the door on the studio side of what may be the most influential studio jams wrought at the turn of the 70s, issuing the unedited original takes of the material that Miles and Teo Macero would parse down and edit into On The Corner and Big Fun, plus some material that made it out on various compilations later issued on Columbia, and best of all, a dozen never before released tracks! The core group here is Miles, Michael Henderson, Mtume, Al Foster and Reggie Lucas, but Dave Liebman, Carlos Garnett, Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, Jack Dejohnette, Pete Cosey, Badal Roy, Bennie Maupin and John McLaughlin, as well as a number of other players, are all featured, which isn't surprising when you consider the ground covered here! The groove here is unstoppable funk, as on the nearly 20 minute jam that is the unedited full take of "On The Corner" and drawn out renditions of "Mtume", "Turnaround", "Ife" and "Helen Butte/Mr Freedom X", but the vibe veers in other directions too, as with the breezy "Maiysha", the multilayered "Calypso Frelimo" and the spacious "He Loved Him Madly". There's 31 tracks spread out over the 6 discs, ther unissued gems include "Hip-Skip", "Chieftain", "What They Do", "Peace" and "Mr Foster", and as you'd expect, the box is extra deluxe, with a thick booklet full of notes and some great quotes from the band, and a sweet metallic box to hold it all together! Vote Miles! CD

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 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

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

Doris DukeI'm A Loser – The Swamp Dogg Sessions & More ... CD
Kent (UK), 1969/1971. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Some of the greatest female soul from the southern scene at the start of the 70s – two monumental albums from singer Doris Duke, both produced by Swamp Dogg and packaged here with some rare bonus cuts too! Doris' work has always been some of our favorite from the deep soul scene – honest, personal, and earthy – with a quality that goes way beyond the cliches of other female soul singers from the south – an aspect that's even more surprising, given that Swamp Dogg was in on the mix! Doris has a way of putting over a tune that's really incredible – that kind of intimate, one-on-one mode that brings to mind the kind of chills we first felt when hearing Otis Redding on Stax – and which somehow manages to hold on strong over all the tracks on the set. At 26 numbers in all, the package is a tremendous rare soul treasure – and features the full tracks from the album I'm A Loser and A Legend In Her Own Time – plus some rare singles cut by Doris under the name Doris Willingham. Titles include "He's Gone", "Feet Start Walking", "Ghost Of Myself", "I Wish I Could Sleep", "It Sure Was Fun", "I'd Do It All Over You", "If She's Your Wife", "Bad Water", "To The Other Woman (I'm The Other Woman)", "Too Much To Bear", "Your Best Friend", and "Divorce Decree".
