✨✧ VariousCherrystones – Critical Mass/Splinters From The Worldwide New-Wave, Post-Punk and Industrial Underground 1978 to 1984 (with download) ... LP
Touch Sensitive, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The Cherrystones name is one that we've long been able to trust for funky rock from a variety of generations – early twang of the 50s, garage of the 60s, and psych of the 70s – and this time around, the magical Cherrystones ears are turned towards the post-punk underground of the late 70s and early 80s – and serve up a wonderful range of tunes we've mostly never heard before! The Cherrystones love of a groove is still very strongly intact – and instrumentation runs from skittish punky guitars to colder synth wave keyboards – but always delivered with a short, sharp style that keeps things moving along nicely. Stylistically, imagine the funkier work on early 80s labels like Rough Trade, 99 Records, or Disques Du Crepuscule – or maybe early ACR on Factory – all of which are good comparisons. There's plenty of obscure gems here – even at a time when lots of other work from this time has been reissued – and titles include "Fan Fan Fanatisch" by Rheingold, "War Machine" by The Tee Vees "Kate" by Chandra, "The Beat Goes On" by The Transistors, "Quincunx" by Dojoji, "White Night" by The Lines, "Permanent" by Fote, and "Heat Of Violence" by 39 Clocks.

Jarrard AnthonyReady To Live ... CD
Purpose, 2012. Used ... $3.99
A hell of a great album from Jarrard Anthony – an artist who's been bubbling under for the past few years – but who really comes into his own with this beautiful album! The set's got all the spiritual overtones you might guess from the cover – but also comes across with a tightly-crafted, all-soul approach too – a really rich vibe that's a perfect fit for Anthony's positive-spirited lyrics! Instrumentation is relatively lean – mostly handled by Nate Smith – yet comes across with a focus that seems to make a lot out of a little – a really great groove that builds nicely as the album rolls along. The album features guest work by Lonnie Liston Smith, Monet, Darien, Amer Amen, Amma Whatt, and Onaje Allan Gumbs – and titles include a remake of Don Blackman's "I Love You" – plus "Morning In The Forest", "Healer", "Cloud 10", "Something Like Love", "Never See Her Again", "Lucky Day", and "Blowing On Your Back". Also features the bonus track "Damn Sista (future remix)" with Eric Roberson – and "Never See Her Again". CD

✨✧ Art Ensemble Of ChicagoCertain Blacks (Inner City) ... LP
America/Inner City, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
One of our favorite albums ever by the Art Ensemble of Chicago – a key French session that captures the group at the height of their powers! The centerpiece of the album is the extended track "Certain Blacks (Do What They Wanna)" – done in a beautiful mix of politics and free group improvisation that come across with amazing power and clarity – making the piece one of the best translations of the Chicago AACM spirit to the European scene. Other tracks on the session include the soulfully spiritual number "One For Jarman", which captures the group at a uniquely laidback level – and the bluesy "Bye Bye Baby", which features one of the few pairings of the group with Chicago Beau and harmonica player Julio Finn.

Roy AyersRed Black & Green ... LP
Polydor, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Seminal early funk work from Roy Ayers! The record catches him at that perfect point when he was turning from a straight jazz player into a sinister force in 70s funk – and the group on the session includes super-hip soul jazz giants like Charles Tolliver, Sonny Fortune, and Harry Whitaker, running through short hip soul tracks that were very different than the style of music they were laying out on albums of their own. Roy's on organ, piano, vibes, and vocals – and he also handles the arrangements, with extra help on strings by William S Fischer, whose usual dark touches come across very well here. The album features some great soul covers – like "Ain't No Sunshine" and "Day Dreaming" – plus the original tracks "Cocoa Butter", "Rhythms of Your Mind", and "Red Black & Green".

Derek Bailey/George Lewis/John ZornYankees ... CD
Celluloid, 1983. Used ... $6.99
Spare improvisations from this transatlantic trio of avant jazzers – Derek Bailey on guitar, George Lewis on trombone, and John Zorn on alto, soprano sax, and clarinets! Despite the avant-rock stylings of other work on Celluloid at the time, this one's got a spare, free sound that's very much in keeping with the best work by the players on other labels at the time – coming across more like a record on Parachute or Incus than some of the sloppier crossovers that usually hit the decks on Celluloid. Surprisingly strong all the way through, with titles that include "City City City", "The Warning Track", "On Golden Pond", and "The Legend Of Enos Slaughter". CD

LaVern BakerLaVern Baker Sings Bessie Smith ... LP
Atlantic, 1958. Poor ... $0.99
Bessie Smith by LaVern Baker – a great blend of modes that really comes off great! Instead of sounding like a throwback blues album, the set comes across with a nice degree of contemporary class – thanks in part to a jazzy presentation that's a bit different than some of Baker's other music of the time – and which sports reeds from Sahib Shihab, tenor from Paul Quinichette, trumpet from Buck Clayton, and trombone from Jimmy Cleveland! Baker's voice is in fine form in this comfortable setting – and really works magic with tracks that include "After You've Gone", "Preaching The Blues", "Empty Bed Blues", "Back Water Blues", and "Gimme A Pigfoot". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing with deep groove. NOTE – This copy is in POOR condition, with numerous deep marks, most likely with skips. Cover has a half split top seam, corner wear, with discoloration and a torn corner on the back paste-on.)

Milton Banana TrioBalancando ... CD
EMI/Odeon (Japan), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $13.99
A fantastically hard bossa nova jam led by the legendary Milton Banana – a man not only known as Joao Gilberto's favorite drummer, but also as one of the architects of bossa nova drumming and percussion! The album is full of non-stop drums and piano grooves, and it's a mostly uptempo treat all the way through. Milton B tipples his way across the tops of the drums in an amazingly light fashion, yet still manages to kick on the rhythm all the way through. The hard piano sound and Milton B's beats and rhythms made this album a legend – and really cleared the way for so many great bossa albums to come. Amazing! 12 tracks including "Aruanda", "Ora Bolas", "Encanto Triste", and "Improviso", "A Resposta", "A Resposta". CD

Bar-KaysNightcruising ... LP
Mercury, 1981. Very Good ... $4.99
Man, these guys really know how to groove – and even on a bigger label, with a more commercial image, they still manage to come up with a tight little set! There's a key ear for a bassline and beat that keeps The Bar-Kays standing stronger than most of their contemporaries – a sense of rhythm schooled in years of indie funk that comes through even on the mellower cuts here – which themselves show an even better side of the group in this generation, one that comes across great here on a few slower numbers that have a sweetly stepping groove. Titles include "Nightcruising", "Freaky Behavior", "Feels Like I'm Falling In Love", "Touch Tone", "Hit & Run", "Unforgettable Dream", "Traffic Jammer", and "Backseat Driver". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the inner sleeve. Cover has some light wear.)

Count BasieStanding Ovation ... CD
Dot/Universal (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $14.99
One of the great Count Basie albums recorded during his short late life stay on Dot Records – a label who really helped him focus his energy and keep up that classic Basie "punch" in his grooves – but all without sacrificing the growth the group had gone through over the years! There's plenty of modern colors and tones in the mix here – elements from the Basie years with arrangers like Neal Hefti, Quincy Jones, and Billy Byers – but the presentation is also strong and straight, with a hell of a lot packed into just a little space – that mode that always made the Count such a great leader! Players include Marshal Royal on alto, Eddie Lockjaw Davis and Eric Dixon on tenors, Charlie Fowlkes on baritone, Harry Edison and Oscar Brasher on trumpets, and Grover Mitchell on trombone – on titles that include "Lil Darlin", "Jive At Five", "Broadway", "Cherry Point", "Every Tub", "Corner Pocket", and "Blue & Sentimental".

Joe BataanSaint Latin's Day Massacre ... LP
Fania, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A real turning point for Joe Bataan – and the beginning of his funky Latin sound of the 70s! The album was one of the first in Joe's "Salsoul" style – a sweet blend of Latin rhythms, late 60s Latin soul influences, and some of the hipper styles bubbling through the NuYorican scene. A few cuts are in the sweet soul ballad mode of Joe's earlier years – but there's others that pick up the groove nicely, and add in some guitar and vibes for a sweet electrified groove. Includes a great remake of "Theme From Shaft", plus the two-part "I Wish You Love", "If I Were A King", "Coco E", "El Regreso", and "Charangaringa". LP, Vinyl record album

Les BaxterConfetti ... CD
Capitol (Japan), 1958. New Copy ... $13.99
A groovy Les Baxter album from the pre-exotica years – a set that showcases all the lively, jaunty styles that Les brought to his initial instrumental run on Capitol Records! The mix of sounds is as colorful as the title might imply – some Latin modes, wordless vocal passages, and plenty of instrumental tricks – even a bit of whistling at times, which comes across in this mighty cool way – as Baxter and crew turn out their own version of famous European instrumentals, zinged up in this groovy late 50s California mode! Titles include "Love Begins", "La Panse", "Love Theme From Farewell To Arms", "The Lonely Whistler", "Heartstring Melody", and "Ricordante Marcellino". CD

Aaron BellAfter The Party's Over ... LP
RCA, 1958. Very Good- ... $7.99
An obscure 50s session from bassist Aaron Bell – one of the player's few dates as a leader, cut at a time when he was working in Duke Ellington's group of the decade! As with some of Duke's other bassists, Bell's got a strongly pronounced tone – one that came through great in big group setting, and which really shines even more here – working in a mostly piano trio setting, and coming across with a good sense of bounce and soul. The album features Bell in a few different groups – with players who include Hank Jones or Charlie Bateman on piano, Ed Thigpen or Elvin Jones on drums, and a bit of extra trombone from Tyree Glenn. Bell even plays a bit of added tuba on a few tunes – using the instrument in a way that's not too different from his bass – and titles include "After The Party Blues", "Cool", "Party Blues", "Kumquat", "All The Way", "Love Nest", and a 2-part version of "Satin Doll".

Bixio-Frizzi-TemperaSette Note In Nero (Psychic) (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1977. New Copy ... $19.99
A beautiful little horror soundtrack from the team of Franco Bixio, Fabio Frizzi, and Vince Tempera – much more subtle than most others of the time, and handled with some very unusual styles! There's a gently flowing quality to the music here that we really love – a slow-building approach that's certainly somewhat about suspense, but which also comes across even more with a sense of contemplation – a love of the uncommon sounds produced here by common instruments, really revelling in the way that they flow out into the story. At one level, there's almost some of the gentleness of early 70s Morricone – but with some of the darker tones of the growing Italian horror genre. CD features a whopping 22 tracks in all – with titles that include "With You", "Suicidio", "Ritrovamento Del Cadavere", "La Lettera", "Conversazione", "Tunnels", "Strane Visioni", and "Allucinazioni".

Art BlakeyMidnight Session With The Jazz Messengers ... LP
Elektra, 1957. Very Good- ... $24.99
One of the rarest Art Blakey sessions of the late 50s – recorded during that brief time when the Jazz Messengers featured Jackie McLean on alto sax! The set's also unusual in that it's one of the few jazz dates for Elektra Records in the early years – recorded here with an edge that's perhaps a bit rougher than some of the other Blakey records during this "many labels" stretch – but in a way that seems to also bring out some especially great qualities in McLean's horn! Other members here include Bill Hardman on trumpet, Spanky DeBrest on bass, and Sam Dockery on piano – and the differences here make for a nice change from the usual Blakey! Titles include "Casino", "Potpourri", "The Biddie Griddies", "Ugh", and "Reflections Of Buhania". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original grey label pressing. Cover has some wear, splash stains across the top half, and a fully split top seam. Vinyl plays with some crackles.)

BlundettoWorld Of ... CD
Heavenly Sweetness (France), 2015. New Copy ... $18.99
The world of Blundetto is a mighty groovy one – filled with dubby rhythms, funky touches, and some of the sharpest underground production around! This album's a real standout in a world of kicked-back rhythms – never too sleepy, never too sloppy – and always thoughtfully done with this undercurrent of careful composition that comes across in this very subtle way. So while the beats snake out slowly, and the basslines echo a Kingston vibe, there's also these richer currents in the songs that come through beautifully – and resonate a lot stronger than usual for this kind of set. The core Blundetto sound is augmented by an array of guests – including Shawn Lee, Akale Horns, John Milk, Pupajim, Biga Ranx, Marina, and others – and titles include "Work", "Hands For Silver", "Last Broken Bones", "Move Me", "Matanza", "Only One Stand", and "Seed Balls".

✨✧ Bow Wow WowSee Jungle! See Jungle! Go Join Your Gang Yeah! City All Over, Go Ape Crazy ... LP
RCA, 1981. Near Mint- ... $9.99
"I'm a rock n' roll puppet, in a band called Bow Wow Wow." What a weird, defiantly appealing moment in pop music it was when Malcolm McClaren assembled members of The Ants and 15-year-old Annabella Lwin – who then paired bratty, pseudo savage lyrics with African inspired drums & rhythms. What should have been an affront to good taste (you can legitimately argue that it it was) just sounds like a bunch of thumping, boisterous fun to us – and hearing it post Vampire Weekend, it sure sounds like those boys spent a whole lot of time with this record. Titles include "Jungle Boy", "King Kong", "Chihuahua", "Go Wild In The Country", "Why Are Babies So Wise?", "Orang-Outang", "Hello, Hello Daddy (I'll Sacrifice You)" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Braen's MachineUnderground ... CD
Liuto Records/Schema (Italy), 1971. New Copy Gatefold ... $19.99
Heavy fuzz with a good deal of funk as well – a very unique set from the Italian sound library scene – and one that comes across with the feel of some lost psych record from the underground! The album was produced by Piero Piccioni – and features soundtrack/sound library maestros Alessandro Alessandroni and Oronzo De Filippi, working as the pseudonymous Braen and Gisteri – in a batch of heavy drums and basslines, topped with lots of fuzzed up guitar – but all with a tightness that's a lot more forward-moving than the usual set of this nature! Things never get to overdone, but still go plenty far out – and titles include "Flying", "Imphormal", "Murder", "Gap", "New Experiences", "Fall Out", "Description", and "Obstinacy". CD
Also available Underground (with bonus CD) ... LP 26.99
