FunkadelicAmerica Eats Its Young (red & green colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Westbound/4 Men With Beards, 1972. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $23.99 28.98
A massive double length set from Funkadelic! As if the group's vision wasn't already expansive enough in their early Westbound years, they really make incredible use of the space of this 2LP set to show off their talent for funky invention, fuzzed-out guitar, and mind-bending look at the world around them – taking off into a heady array of topics and settings that are even more chilling than before. If Maggot Brain can be taken as a document of Detroit after the apocalypse, this set should be read as a wider statement on the climate in America that was leading up to it – all served up with some of the group's funkiest rhythms on record to date! Titles include "You Hit the Nail On the Head", "A Joyful Process", "Loose Booty", "Biological Speculation", "Philmore", "We Hurt Too", "Everybody Is Going To Make It This Time", "Miss Lucifer's Love", "and "If You Don't Like the Effects Don't Produce the Cause". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 1000 copies.)

Junior MurvinPolice & Thieves (180 gram blue vinyl pressing) ... LP
Mango/4 Men With Beards, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 23.99
The all time classic from Junior Murvin – as essential as any late 70s reggae! Production-wise, Police And Thieves is among Scratch's finest moments, from the most monumental period in Perry's career, during the height of the Black Ark. The title track needs no introduction from us, and the rest of the record is solid, funky roots rock, at a level Murvin would not match again in his career. His sweet falsetto is draped in the dense, murky production that carved a niche in history for Perry. Tracks like "Roots Train" and "False Teaching" are the embodiment of crucial, and the album is filled with other great cuts like the now classic title track, "Rescue Jah Children", "Tedious", "Easy Task" and "I Was Appointed".

Nina SimoneNina Simone At Town Hall (180 gram dark pink vinyl pressing) ... LP
Colpix/4 Men With Beards, 1959. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 23.99
An important early live show for Nina Simone – a move from the world of small nightclubs (as mentioned in the title of her first record), to the classy Town Hall venue – working in front of an audience filled with left-leaning listeners who were the perfect crowd to get the unique bag she was working on at the time! The performance is a great one – mellow, moody, and a bit folksy – with Nina singing and playing piano with power that really rings out in the larger space – really egged on by the enthusiastic response of the audience. Titles include her classic reading of "Black Is The Color Of My True Love's Hair", plus "The Other Woman", "Under The Lowest", "Summertime", "You Can Have Him", "Wild Is The Wind", "Return Home", and "Cotton Eyed Joe". LP, Vinyl record album

Bunny WailerBlackheart Man (180 gram colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Island/4 Men With Beards, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 23.99
The legendary solo debut of Bunny Wailer – a set that maybe marks him as the most righteous member of The Wailers! The style here is heavy on the roots tip, but there's also a special sort of vibe going on too – these warm currents that are laced with occasional touches of jazz, amidst a mellow-flowing presentation that's right up there with the best of Island Records in the mid 70s – but somehow deeper too! Peter Tosh joins a great lineup that includes Winston Barrett, Robbie Shakespear, Winston Wright, and other Jamaican instrumental giants – but it's definitely Bunny who holds the whole thing together with a spirit that's quite different than his famous previous partner, Bob Marley. Titles include "Blackheart Man", "Rasta Man", "This Train", "Reincarnated Souls", "Armagideon", "The Oppressed Song", "Fig Tree", and "Fighting Against Convictions". LP, Vinyl record album
(On red, green & yellow vinyl!)

Bill WithersJust As I Am (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Sussex/4 Men With Beards, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $20.99 24.98
A beautiful album by Bill Withers – filled with incredibly well written songs, and an amazing instrumental technique that blended folksy elements with smoother 70s soul, in a sound that would put Bill at the top of the charts for many years, yet still give him cred with soul fans for decades! Booker T Jones arranged, produced, and played electric piano on the album – and we can say without a doubt that the record's one of the few good things to come out of his move to LA! Although the album's not a greatest hits one, given the strength of the tracks, it may as well be, as it includes Withers classics like "Grandma's Hands", "Ain't No Sunshine", "Harlem", and "Hope She'll Be Happier". Also features the nice groover, "Better Off Dead", which has a very tasty intro! LP, Vinyl record album
(Nice heavy tip-on cover – better than the original!)
Also available Just As I Am ... LP 14.99

✨✧ Max Romeo & The UpsettersWar Ina Babylon (red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Island/4 Men With Beards, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Essential stuff, whether you're a fan of roots reggae, Jamaican soul or the otherworldly antics of the Upsetter! Though you might not know it from some of the bitter rebukes Scratch later laid to wax against him, Romeo was clearly his favorite son when it came to vocalists, and got the prodigal treatment when it came to the choice of rhythms to voice. A monumental effort on both their parts, this album continues to amaze us with every spin, Romeo's soulful inflections matched perfectly to the dark, swampy Black Ark grooves. Include "War Ina Babylon", "Chase The Devil", "Stealin'", "One Step Forward", "Smile Out Of Style", "Uptown Babies", "Tan And See", "Smokey Room" and "Norman". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited red vinyl pressing!)

✨✧ MoondogStory Of Moondog (180 gram purple & green vinyl pressing) ... LP
Prestige/4 Men With Beards, Mid 50s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Incredible work from the enigmatic Moondog – his third, and to that point, possibly most angular record for Prestige to date! The work here is quite different than some of Moondog's later, more serious compositions – in a mode that's much earthier, personal, and spontaneous – a little more in keeping with the mostly-jazz catalog on Prestige (although admittedly, all Moondog records are still a strange fit for the company!) There's a spare, stark modern style and a looser, freer sound, with lots of off kilter, but hypnotic percussion. The tracks are largely played on instruments created by Moondog himself, including a triangular drum and a string instrument struck with a clave, and tripod suspended log hit with rubber mallets. Titles include "Up Broadway", "Perpetual Motion", "Gloving It", "Two Quotations In Dialogue", "5/8 In Two Shades", "Moondog's Theme", "Wildwood", "Organ Rounds" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 1000 – on purple & green vinyl!)
