CelesteCinco E Triste Da Manha ... CD
Tapecar/Amazon (Brazil), Early 70s. New Copy ... $2.99
Moody female vocals from Brazil – a great early 70s album with a dreamy feel and a nice electric touch! In a way, the album's a fair bit like the Ana Mazzotti album from the same period, with a mix of some funky scatting vocal numbers, and other tunes that are more laidback, but which fit very nicely next to the uptempo cuts. Arrangements on some of the best numbers are by Meirelles, with a sweetly groovy electric feel that's similar to some of his own albums from the early 70s. Titles include "Foi Assim", "Como Posso Saber", "Sinal De Solidao", "Teia De Aranha", "Po", "Serrado", "Sonhos", and "Ronda Tristeza". CD

FantasiaSweet Sweet City Rhythm ... LP
Amazon, 1978. Near Mint- ... $1.99
It's getting later in the 70s so the disco movement has taken hold of the mainstream and everyone's trying to get in on the act. This pop disco set features lead vocals by Peggy Santiglia – and it's got strings and horns arranged by John Davis, who may have been responsible for his share of disco cliche's, though here he does a nice job of keeping things tight and right, and the lengthier numbers have some nice dynamic shifts and breakdowns. Titles include "Fantasia/Carnival", "Sweet Sweet City Rhythm", "Go On And Dance To The Music", and "Alice Street". LP, Vinyl record album

Roberto NascimentoRoberto Nascimento ... LP
Amazon/Tapecar, 1975. Near Mint- (reissue)... $9.99
A wonderful little album – sweet jazzy MPB from Roberto Nascimento, a lost record that we're very happy got reissued! We'll be honest and say that we didn't know anything about this one in the past – but we really enjoy the record for its warm grooves and gently soulful vocals. The overall sound is somewhere in the mode of Lo Borges, but there's some interesting, almost Joyce-like guitar overtones that give it a different feel than you might expect. Titles include "Lero Lero", "Se Eu Errei", "Tema De Vania", "Voltei", and "El Saltamontes". LP, Vinyl record album

Les BaxterJungle Jazz ... LP
Capitol/Captain High (Germany), Late 50s. New Copy (reissue)... About October 15, 2017
Savage stuff! This is one of Les Baxter's greatest albums ever – and it's right on a par with African Jazz, which uses a similar formula: Plas Johnson's up front playing gutsy tenor, and Les is behind, working a large group of exotica players into a tribal frenzy of mellow grooves. Titles include "Amazon Falls", "Coco", "Isle Of Cuba", "Jungla Brava", "Go Chango", and "Blue Jungle". LP, Vinyl record album

Herbie MannSound Of Mann ... LP
Verve, Early 60s. Very Good ... $6.99
Herbie hits some nice Afro-Cuban grooves, with backing by Latin percussionists like Ray Barretto, Ray Mantilla, Jose Mangual, and Patato Valdez. The set's a lively one, in the manner of his Flautista album, with some tracks that are a bit longer than usual, with a nice heavy groove. Titles include "Baia", "The Amazon River", "Frenesi", and a long Latin version of "Autumn Leaves". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousHorror Hop ... CD
Buffalo Bop (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $21.99
A host of horror-heavy tunes – and a killer collection of fright-filled novelty numbers with a decidedly rocking feel! This excellent set goes way past familiar Halloween tracks, to come up with a massive blend of rare singles from the late 50s and early 60s – most with really cool instrumentation and production – almost an audio equivalent to the kind of horror films that were big at the time! Titles include "Shudders & Screams" by Ben Colder, "The Mummy's Bracelet" by Lee Ross, "The Zoo" by Mickey Lee Lane, "Foo Man Choo" by The Revels, "Night Mare" by Billy Sills, "She's My Witch" by Kip Tyler, "Black Widow Spider Woman" by Jack Hammer, "Vampira" by Bobby Bare, "Werewolf" by The Frantics, "Creature From Outer Space" by Sonny Day, "Amazon" by Phil Carter, "Graveyard Rock" by Tarantula Goul, and "Igor's Party" by Tony's Monstrosities.

✨✧ Dona OneteBanzeiro ... LP
Mais Um Discos (UK), 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Brazilian music from far up the Amazon River – from a place where the sounds are often quite different from those heard in Rio or Sao Paulo – and much more likely to share some elements with the native cultures of the other side of South America, as well as some Caribbean rhythms too! Dona Onete's got a wonderful voice – as rich in spirit and warmth as her image on the cover – and the presentation of her music is nicely stripped-down – well-recorded, but free of any too commercial touches in the production. Titles include "Tipiti", "Banzeiro", "Na Linha Do Arco Iris", and "No Sabor Do Beijo". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Gabor Szabo & Bobby WomackHigh Contrast ... LP
Blue Thumb, 1970. Used ... Out Of Stock
Excellent early 70s work from jazz guitarist Gabor Szabo – a super-dope album that's one of the best he ever recorded! Part of the success of the record has to do with the presence of Bobby Womack – normally a soul singer, but also a heck of a guitarist, playing here alongside Szabo in a very cool twin-guitar style that makes for an amazing sound. Both players have a hollow, warm tone to their work on the strings – stepping around a blend of soul and jazz that's nicely tripped out in a 70s Blue Thumb style. The highlight of the record is the massive track "Breezin", a sample track used by more than one group over the years – but the whole record's amazing, filled with slow, trippy grooves that were years ahead of their time! Titles include "I Remember When", "Just A Little Communication", "Amazon", "Fingers", and "Azure Blue". LP, Vinyl record album

Taschen, 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Amazing images from decades of the Amazon princess – pulled from early Wonder Woman comics, publications in the silver age, and lots of later issues as well – all wrapped up in a really beautiful package that hardly deserves the "little" in its title! Instead, this thing pops like a much bigger art book – particularly Taschen's oversized volumes on DC, as this one's handled in a similar, but smaller manner – with wonderfully well-chosen pictures, and running commentary from Paul Levitz – who once ran DC, and has plenty of insight to offer. 190 pages, full color.

✨✧ Walter Maioli/Fred Gales/Pit PiccinelliAmazonia 6891 – Sounds From Jungle, Natural Objects, Echo, & Electronic Waves ... LP
Black Sweat (Italy), 1986. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A very strange little record – one that certainly lives up to its Amazon-related title, but in ways that are quite unusual! The first half of the set features sounds recorded in the jungle, but mixed in the studio – at a level that almost feels more like some obscure electronic experiments – as noises from birds, bugs, and other creatures come across like some sonic waves – repeating and shifting a bit – and reminding us how much similarity there can be between organic and electronic elements! The second half is much more electronic overall, but with lots of field recordings too – living creatures, shells, trees, leaves, stones, and lots more too – all brought together in a really complicated mix of sounds. And yet the whole thing's strangely peaceful, too – like when you're initially tense in a strange environment, then relax into it, once you get the pulse. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Herbie MannFlautista – Herbie Mann Plays Afro-Cuban Jazz (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Verve (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A gem of a record from a time when flute Mann Herbie was really taking off – a set that shows his growing love of Latin rhythms, which are used to wonderful effect throughout! Mann had been recording straighter chamber jazz a few short years before, but there's a nicely unbridled feel to this record – as the rhythms really take off, the tunes get longer, and Herbie responds with a really jamming style on his flute! The core group is wonderful – and features Johnny Rae on vibes, and Patao Valdez and Jose Mangual on percussion – working with Herbie in a style that's similar to his own appearances on some of Rae's other records. Titles include the long groovy "Cuban Potato Chip", plus "Caravan", "Amazon River", and "Come On Mule" – all of which are also nice and long. Plus, this reissue also adds 2 unreleased bonus cuts – "Delilah" and "Basin Street Este". CD

✨✧ Cal TjaderAmazonas ... LP
Fantasy, 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A sweet little Brazilian set from Cal Tjader – quite different than most of his other work of the time! Although Cal spent most of his time at Fantasy Records working in a mixture of jazz and Afro-Cuban styles, he steps off here in a very Brazilian 70s mode – one that has some great links with jazz trends going on in Brazil at the time! Production is by Airto and arrangements are by George Duke – and there's a wonderful crossing of Rio and California in the set – one that uses keyboards from Egberto Gismonti, flute from Hermeto Pascoal, guitars by David Amaro, and trombone from Raul De Souza. Dawilli Gonga nee George Duke plays some especially nice keyboards on the set – and titles include a great version of Joao Donato's "Amazonas", plus the tracks "Mindoro", "Corine", "Noa Noa", and "Cahuenga".

✨✧ Joao DonatoQuem e Quem (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Odeon/Polysom (Brazil), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
A gem of a record – one we wouldn't part with for anything! Joao Donato's best known as one of the founding fathers of bossa nova – better known for his 60s work over the years, than he was for 70s electric work like this. Fortunately, international groove hounds picked up on the record years back, and it's been firmly brought back into the limelight as the classic it truly is! The set's an incredible reworking of Donato's sound – the gentle jazzy phrasing of the bossa years turned towards mellow groovers that feature a heck of a lot of electric piano. The album's got a few classic funky tracks, and some even more wonderful tracks that feature Joao working sparely on Fender Rhodes – accompanying himself on raspy vocals on most of the cuts! The whole thing's great – and titles include "Nana Das Aquas", "A Ra", "Amazonas", "Mentiras", "Cala Boca Menino", "Cade Jodel", "Me Deixa", and "Ate Quem Sabe". LP, Vinyl record album

Clara MondshineLuna Africana ... LP
Great Thunder (Germany), 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99
A weird mix of electronics and percussion from the German scene – a set recorded in 1981, but with a freewheeling vibe that's almost more like some of the electronic experiments of the prog years! Clara Mondshine plays a range of keyboards – most with these sounds that are somewhere in the Sky Records styles of the time, but played with a lot looser energy overall – which then allows for contributions from other electronic elements from other participants in the session, and a range of tabla, sitar, gongs, and other percussion too. Things are never too over the top – never as jamming as prog recordings from years back – but there's an open vibe to the record that we really appreciate, not nearly as staid as other German electronics of the time – or as cold as some of the post-punk work. Titles include "Amazonenharfe", "Raga Des Aufgehenden Planeten", "Die Drachentrommmler", and "Lange Melodie Fur Den Countdown". LP, Vinyl record album

Hareton SalvaniniA Virgem De Saint Tropez (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Fermata/Polysom (Brazil), 1974. New Copy ... $32.99
A totally wonderful little soundtrack – Brazilian in origin, but with lots of the lush, warm tones we love in 70s Italian erotic scores too! The style is definitely Brazilian, though – and modes run from some of the cooler, larger arrangements you'd hear from Marcos Valle – especially in his early 70s years – to some moments that are a bit more spare, and mix in rootsy percussion, sweet keyboards, and jazzy touches on Fender Rhodes – which makes for a really wonderful blend of styles! The record's one that we'd rank equally next to our favorite Emi/Odeon grooves from the time – and next to some of our sweetest, grooviest European soundtracks of the early 70s – and titles inclkude "Seios", "Despedida", "Espairecendo", "You Can't Run Away From Your Destiny", "Panorama", "Amazonia", and "Quarto De Hotel".

Cal TjaderSolar Heat ... LP
Skye, 1968. Very Good Gatefold ... $19.99
One of Cal Tjader's best albums ever – and a sweetly electric side that features Joao Donato on organ and Gary McFarland on vibes! The record is a brilliant extension of Cal's styles at Verve – a bit of Latin, a bit of jazz, with some easily grooving numbers that have just the right dose of funk! Donato's organ sounds especially great, and there's also some added electric piano and electric harpsichord on the record, which expands the electricity even more – and gives the whole thing a really groovy sound! Loads of great numbers – including "Mambo Sangria", "Fried Bananas", "Solar Heat", "Ode to Billy Joe", and Donato's great "Amazonas". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Georges DelerueL'Homme De Rio/Les Tribulations D'un Chinois En Chine ... CD
Universal (Japan), 1963/1965. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two great soundtracks by Georges Delerue – both penned for Jean-Paul Belmondo films of the mid 60s! Les Tribulations D'Un Chinois En Chine has a really great style that mixes fake "Chinese" themes with more playful orchestrations – all in a mood that really fits that lightly comedic action of the movie, and which has an extremely evocative feel, even away from the screen! Strings are often arranged in playful ways, and mixed with odd woodwinds – not really authentically Chinese, but that's the appeal! L'Homme De Rio has a stronger Brazilian feel, as you might expect – one that's got bits of batucada, elements of bossa orchestrations, and some of the bolder, more dramatic moments we've come to expect from Delerue! The whole package is great, with lots of images from the films, and notes in both English and French – and a total of 24 tracks that include "Bowling Bresilien", "Batucada/Rapt Au Trocadero", "A La Poursuite De Catalan", "Quelle Adventure", "Mister Goh", "Hong Kong", "Poursuite En Ballon", "Suzy Et Cornelius", and "Choinoiseries" – plus 2 bonus tracks, "Alexandrine Pour Alexandra" and "Amazone".

Roxy Music's third album and the first one sans Brian Eno, making the record slightly less experimental, but still a wild avant pop masterpiece that finds the group at near peak perfection! The otherworldly elements aren't forgone in Eno's absence, with some spacey synthesizer washes and treated violin parts lending some otherwordliness – but the more focused songwriting and overall tunefulness make this one another classic! Titles include "Street Life", "Just Like You", "Amazona", "Psalm", "Serenade", "A Song For Europe", "Mother Of Pearl" and "Sunset". CD

✨✧ VariousJapanese Sounds – Produced By DJ Muro ... CD
Ultra Vybe (Japan), 2017. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
DJ Muro's given us some fantastic collections and mixes over the years – mostly made of vintage work from the 70s, which he really seems to know better than most! Yet this time around, the music is contemporary – all from the Japanese scene, and all produced by Muro himself – but with a very classic, soulful sort of vibe that takes us back to Tokyo groovers of the 70s, or some of the best cuts from the disco generation! Singers are female throughout – and include Pushim, Lyn, Tiger, Keyona, Ramja, Amazons, and Keyco – but the same group of musicians plays on most of the cuts, which creates a very unified vibe, even though things change up in a good way from track to track. Muro's production is wonderful – with a richness that takes us back to rare Japanese soul records of the 70s – and most of the text is in Japanese, or we'd be able to tell you more about the record!

You might remember Nina Miranda for her great work with Da Lata years ago – but since that time, she's only evolved even more as an artist – to a point where she's really finding her voice here in a freshly creative way! The record's got a very compelling mix of acoustic and electric elements – some of the beats you might expect, but also mixed with more live percussion, and even some field recordings and other elements that really create a deeper texture of sound next to Nina's lovely vocals. The record also features help from some great talents from the underground – including Kassin, Chris Franck, Xaver Fischer, and others who've helped bridge the gap between Brazilian roots and 21st Century expression. Titles include "Marsh Mellow Dreams", "Whole Of London", "Megalopolis", "The Cage", "Silken Horse", "Capoeira 2020", "Play", "Amazonia Amor", "Soundtrack To Venus Night Boat", and "The Surfer". CD
