✨✧ RodinaEx-Anima ... CD
Now Again, 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Very cool sounds from Jay Whitefield of The Whitefield Brothers – an artist you might know from his funky work in that group, and in the excellent Poets Of Rhythm and Karl Hector & The Malcouns – three combos that were always dedicated to reworking the best funky styles of the 60s and 70s! Here, though, Jay's on a completely different path – one that's very strongly inspired by the more meditative side of Krautrock in the 70s – those records that slowed things down, opened them up, and let the instrumentation find its own sort of special space – often extending into side-long tracks, or tunes that work together as a complete whole. The latter is the approach here – as Whitefield and his musical partner Johannes Schleiermacher work through a brace of keyboards, electronics, guitars, flute, percussion, and other odd instruments – almost exclusively in an instrumental mode, and with the kind of presentation and production to rival vintage albums on the Brain or Egg labels. Titles include "Burgerpark", "Overtones Of Ling", "Dark Echoes", "Neusi", "Makifamba", and "Drohne Zuruck". CD

Blank Forms, 2018. New Copy ... $19.99
A special issue of Blank Forms – one that looks at past versions of future sounds, served up in a host of never-published, lost, and newly-translated writings – by contributors who include Patty Waters, Tony Conrad, Alan Licht, John Corbett, Annea Lockwood, Tashi Wada, Kin Mikami, Mantana Roberts, and many others! The page count is huge – over 300 pages in all, with color images throughout – which makes the whole thing more like a book than a journal – and the writings move between interviews, history, and more theoretical pieces – covering the music of Sun Ra, Tony Conrad, Anima, Maryanne Amacher, Patty Waters, and others!

Carlo RustichelliI Lunghi Capelli Della Morte (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Dagored (Italy), 1964. New Copy ... $28.99
A creepy cover, and some creepy music as well – a starkly dramatic 60s score from Italian maestro Carlo Rustichelli! The style of the music predates some of the more famous Italian horror to come in the late 60s, but it's still directed with a similar thoughtfulness and sense of sound – a great ear for taking familiar orchestral modes and making them come out strange – thanks to odd timings and tunings that really do the trick! There's lots of offbeat woodwinds in the mix here – and some numbers are very spare, and at the lower range of the sound spectrum – making you peer (or hear) into the darkness to try to distinguish the action – then leap in surprise when things get more dramatic. Titles include "Verso I Rogo", "Tamburi Di Morte", "Mente Mavagia", "Piano Diabolico", "La Fine Di Kurt", "Amore Maledetto", "Adele Karnstein", and "Anima Mea". LP, Vinyl record album

Tribalistas (Arnaldo Antunes, Carlinhos Brown, & MCapa Provisoria ... CD
Universal (Brazil), 2017. New Copy ... $22.99
Beautiful work from Tribalistas – that groundbreaking group forged from three Brazilian stars who rose in the 90s – Arnaldo Antunes, Marisa Monte, and Carlinhos Brown – who somehow found a perfect way to come together, and make their music even more special as a trio! We've always loved their records, but this time around there's something maybe even more incredible – this instant classic vibe that rings out right from the very first note, as the voices of the singers trade back and forth, and blend – and the instrumentation follows suit with this subtle weaving of acoustic and electric elements. Monte produced the record, but really with help from everyone else involved – and there's this close-up, collaborative spirit to the whole thing that maybe makes the record the most intimate, personal offering from the group – and maybe the most mature as well. Titles include "Diaspora", "Um So", "Fora Da Memoria", "Anima", "Feliz E Saudavel", "Lutar E Vencer", "os Peixinhos", "Baiao Do Mundo", and "Alianca". CD

VariousBeleza Tropical – Brazil Classics Vol 1 ... LP
Fly/Sire, 1989. Very Good+ ... $19.99
The first-ever record in the Luaka Bop legacy – a massive collection of Brazilian grooves that still serves as one of the best introductions to the music we can think of! Most of the artists here are the bigger names of the MPB generation of the 70s – but many are still very under-represented in the US market – which makes the collection of work here completely essential. The styles range from samba soul of Jorge Ben to the lyrical poetry of Caetano Veloso to the soulful drama of Milton Nascimento – and titles include "Ponta De Lanca Africano" and "Fio Varavilha" by Jorge Ben, "Cacada" by Chico Buarque, "Quilombo O El Dorado Negro" and "So Quero Um Xodo" by Gilberto Gil, "Quiexa" and "O Leaozinho" by Caetano Veloso, "Sonho Meu" by Maria Bethania & Gal Costa, "Caixa De Sol" by Nazare Pereira, and "Anima" by Milton Nascimento.

✨✧ Dining RoomsTre (US version) ... CD
Guidance, 2003. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The 3rd album by The Dining Rooms – and the best so far! These guys have really matured from earlier outings – moving into a sophisticated realm of downtempo soundscapes crafted with a great deal of care, and which are put together with a lot more than simple tricks and gimmicks. There's loads of really solid tunes in here – sly numbers that sneak up on you with a subtle approach to the craft, gently burrowing in and taking root – somehow making the album that much more compelling overall. A number of tracks have some wonderfully languid vocals, some male and some female – and these tunes fall nicely next to instrumental numbers with a very evocative approach. Titles include "Anima Per Amarti", "Tunnel", "La Citta Nuda", "Fluxus", "Flamenco Sketches", "Dreamy Smiles", "You", "African Loungesters", and a nice cover of Sun Ra's "Astro Black"! CD

✨✧ VariousInternational New Jazz Meeting – Burg Altena 1972 to 1973 (8CD set) ... CD
Be! (Germany), 1972/1973. New Copy 8CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A double-whammy of a package – one that's like attending a totally hip festival of avant jazz, and finding a time machine to take you there in the process! This overstuffed box brings together recordings from two years' worth of the Burg Altena International New Jazz Meeting in Germany – 4CDs from 1972, and 4 from 1973 – packaged in a very cool box that features loads of photos, and reprints of pages from the programs to both festivals too! But the music here is what really matters – as the performances are all long, often freely improvised, and usually much more way-out than the material you'd hear from any of these players on record. Plus, the choice of musicians is quite unique – some familiar faces from the European underground, but also some real surprises, too – at a level that makes this collection a bit different than others of its nature. The 1972 discs features full sets by Chris McGregor's Brotherhood Of Breath, a quintet led by keyboardist Wolfgang Dauner with guitarist Attila Zoller, reedman Phil Woods European Rhythm Machine with Gordon Beck on electric piano, a duet between Jan Frederyk Dobrowolski on piano and Jacec Bednarek on bass, a quintet led by reedman/violinist Michal Urbaniak with Urszula Dudziak on voice and Adam Makowicz on electric piano, a quartet led by vibist/pianist Karl Berger with Ingrid Berger on voice and Peter Kowald on bass, and the Scandinavia New Jazz Group – with Bobo Stenson on electric piano, Lennart Aberg on tenor, Kjell Westling on soprano sax, Palle Danielsson on bass, and Bengt Berger on drums. 1973 is equally exciting – a performance of the fantastic Anima trio with Paul Fuchs on reeds, Limpe Fuchs on drums and voice, and Friedrich Gulda on acoustic and electric piano; a quintet led by trumpeter Terumasa Hino with Mikio Masuda on piano and Motohiko Hino on drums; the Theo Loevendie Consort, with Theo on alto and soprano, Hans Dulfer on tenor and flute, Martin Altena on bass, and Leo Cuypers on piano; Tune For Bassclarinets with the named instrument played by the quartet of Gunter Hampel, Willem Breuker, Michel Pilz, and Jef Sicard; and the Reform Art Unit, which includes Franz Kogelmann on trumpet, Fritz Novotny on reeds, Sepp Mitterbauer on pocket and regular trumpet, and Giselherr Smekal on organ and piano. Hours of music – and a wonderful package overall! CD

Eric Burdon & The AnimalsLove Is ... CD
MGM/Music On Vinyl (UK), 1968. New Copy ... $16.99 18.99
A fantastic double-length set from The Animals – recorded in LA in the late 60s, and with plenty of great Sunset Strip influences in the mix! The band here is different than before – with Zoot Money handling both organ and piano, plus a bit of vocals, and Andy Summers joining in on guitar – and production is by the group itself, who shake off some of the trippier styles of previous records, and almost go for a "live in studio" sort of sound! There's a confluence of styles here that's really great – some of the blues of the group's roots, bits of Eric Burdon's growing love of soul, and some fuzzier touches as well. Some tracks are quite long jams, and titles include "Gemini", "Madman", "As The Years Go Passing By", "To Love Somebody", and "I'm An Animal". CD

Eric Burdon & The AnimalsTwain Shall Meet ... LP
MGM, 1968. Very Good- ... $9.99
Great later work from The Animals – a set that's not as tripped-out as some of their other late 60s work, and which almost starts to show Eric Burdon's rising love of soul and funk! The sound is still pretty rockish overall – but there's some great use of bass rumbling at the bottom – bringing up a rumbling quality that fits nicely with Burdon's somewhat bleak presentation of the lyrics at various points. Production by Tom Wilson almost has a raspy, lo-fi sort of feel – different than the bluesier roots of the group, and almost a precursor of indie work in decades to come! Titles include the classic "Sky Pilot", plus "Monterey", "Just The Thought", "Closer To The Truth", "No Self Pity", "Orange & Red Beams", and "We Love You Lil". LP, Vinyl record album

Lou Reed at his mid 70s live peak! Volumes have already been and will continue to be written about Lou's output in the 70s, and rightly so. This set is particularly amazing in that it follows the artful highpoint/financial failure that is Berlin – so Lou is doing the rock & roll star thing here, kinda given the people what they want in a way. What's so amazing here is that it doesn't feel like a cash-in, it's crazy good and geniunely passionate stuff! The blazing guitars don't hurt, nor does the fact the the set is heavy with Velvets-era faves. Includes "Intro/Sweet Jane", "Heroin", "White Light/White Heat", "Lady Day" and "Rock N' Roll".

VariousSpider Jazz – KPM Cues Used In The Amazing Animated Series That We Are Not Allowed To Mention By Name For Legal Reasons ... LP
Trunk (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $28.99
The grooviest version of Spider-Man you'll ever hope to hear – all music used in the schlocky late 60s animated series – with sounds that are way tighter and better-done than the stiff images on the screen! The music here is all from the vaults of the UK KPM sound library – and is a mix of mod 60s London styles with some deeper currents from American soul jazz too – all done as tight combo numbers that are short and sharp, but filled with plenty of groovy touches! Away from the screen, the music sounds even better than we remember – with fantastic Hammond, great percussion, and even some soulful tenor moments – with titles that include "The Hell Raisers" and "Walk In A Nightmare" by Syd Dale, "Raver" by Alan Hawkshaw, "Stand By" and "Juggernaut" by David Lindup, "Grand Prix" by Johnny Pearson, "Funky Flight" by Keith Mansfield, "Mods & Rockers" and "LSD" by Bill Martin & Phil Coulter, "Take A Goosie Gander" by Syd Dale, "Sixth Sense" by David Lindup, "The Eyelash" by Johnny Hawksworth, and "Big Bass Guitar" by Bill Martin & Phil Coulter.

Gondwana (UK), 2014. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Strong work by Mammal Hands – a trio with a sound that feels much bigger than that – and they deliver one of the most compelling records yet on the always fresh Gondwana label! There's driven sense of melody that's pretty incredible – with influences that range from Pharaoh Sanders, to the avant classical, or generally unclassifiable mood pieces of Steve Reich, to Eastern jazz, particularly with the tabla in the percussion mix. As adventurous as their influences are, the melodies are tight and inviting, and it makes for unique mix of styles that works very well together. The group features brothers Nick Smart and Jordan Smart – Nick on piano and Jordan on sax – with Jesse Barrett on drums and tabla. Produced by Matthew Halsall. Includes "Mansions Of Millions Of Years", "Snow Bough", "Kandaiki", "Spinning The Wheel", "Bustle", "Inuit Party", "Street Sweeper" and "Tiny Crumb". LP, Vinyl record album

MGM/Sundazed, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The Winds Of Change are definitely afoot in the sound of The Animals – as the album's one of their most psychedelic outings ever – and also a bit funky at times too! Production by Tom Wilson is really great – echoey at most moments, with a kind of "flash" and shimmer around the drums that really spaces things out, and almost gives a Velvets sort of feel to the proceedings. The group's bluesier roots are still in place at times – but these have also been tripped-out and abstracted too, in modes that are a few years ahead of other blues rock combos on the rise. Titles include "It's All Meat", "Winds Of Change", "Poem By The Sea", "Yes I Am Experienced", "Hotel Hell", "San Franciscan Nights", and "Man Woman". CD

Cinedelic (Italy), 1976. New Copy 3LP ... Out Of Stock
Not the fauna and flora you might expect from the title – and instead, a collection that's every bit as heady as some of Egisto Macchi's other sound library work from the time – very offbeat, very unusual, and pretty downright spooky! The sounds here are almost more what you'd expect from the Italian experimental scene on Cramps Records than the usual sound library material – as Macchi works his instruments in so many different ways and modes, often getting weird tones from a piano, making percussion sound coldly melodic, and working in all these other soundshapes that create a nice sense of mystery and tension! And throughout, there's always a return to tunefulness – a sense of melody that can come through the darkness, sometimes at the weirdest moments – and further enforce our sense that Macchi is one of the true geniuses of this overlooked scene. Titles include "Germi", "Dinosauri", "Microscopio II", "Boscimani", "Stadi Embrionali", "Cuore", "Plancton", and "Rane E Rospi". LP, Vinyl record album

BBE (UK), 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Mad Mats is not only digging beyond the crates here, he's also digging beyond any conventional expectations you might have – as the set's got a unique vibe that may well make it one of the most compelling BBE compilations in years! The music is from the late 60s through the present – but it all comes together in a very future-sounding way – with rhythms that are often offbeat, electric elements that seem to crackle with independent energy, and vocals that can fall down in the mix one minute and burst forth the next! This isn't a dance music compilation, and it's also not a set of rare funk tracks either – and instead, Mats creates his own very personal journey in sound – heedless of time periods, genres, and often national boundaries. Titles include "Take A Stand" by Psalms, "Big Big Boss" by Johnny Moore, "Badly" by Cuthead, "Sherriff (Murlo rmx)" by Gappy Ranks, "Keep The Music Alive" by Yvonne Gray, "Evil Woman" by Bobby Hebb, "Jazz In Outer Space" by BSTC, "The Traveller" by Deft, "Space Based" by Mode M, "Don't Hold Back The Feeling (key trip dub)" by U N I, "Animations" by Intimate Disco, and "Jah I See You" by Ensemble Entendu.

A beautiful collaboration between two of the most important forces in leftfield music in the early 80s – multi-media artist Laurie Anderson and modern string legends Kronos Quartet – coming together here in an extended Anderson composition inspired by the experience of Hurricane Sandy!

Louis ArmstrongI Will Wait For You ... CD
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... About July 4, 2018
A completely charming vocal session from Louis Armstrong – done in the later pop years of his life, but a record that's not nearly as well known as his bigger hits for Kapp! Louis works with arrangements from Dick Jacobs – the Brunswick arranger who first provided the early charts for Jackie Wilson – and the style is kind of a 60s update of 20s styles – that retro mode that was showing up in the decade as a few artists like Armstrong were reinvented for the younger generation. But despite the setting, Louis is wonderful throughout – with that honest, raspy tone of later years – and just a bit of trumpet to jazz things up amidst the pop. Titles include "I Will Wait For You", "Sunrise Sunset", "Rosie", "Willkommen", "I Believe", "The Happy Time", and "Talk To The Animals". CD

Jorge BenSacundin Ben Samba ... CD
Universal (Brazil), 1964. New Copy ... $15.99
One of Jorge Ben's greatest albums – a groundbreaking blend of samba and soul that forever went onto transform the face of Brazilian music! The record works off the groove set down by Jorge's earlier hit "Mas Que Nada" (which appears on another LP), and takes the blend of bossa, samba, and jazz, and infuses it with a sense of folksy soul delivered by Jorge's raspy vocals and acoustic guitar work. The combination of styles works perfectly – and every track on the album sparkles with a sense of excitement and new musical discovery that will probably blow away most of the recent records you've bought for your collection! Titles include "Nena Nana", "Espero Por Voce", "Nao Desanima, Joao", "Carnaval Triste", "Gimbo", "Capoeira", and "Anjo Azul". CD

Boom BipBlue Eyed In The Red Room (with bonus 3 inch CD) ... CD
Lex (UK), 2005. Used 2CD ... $5.99
Electro grooves built from analogue instrumentation – another ambitious album from Warp subsidiary Lex Records – home to nearly-great hip hop albums by Danger Mouse & Jemini and Prince Po! With the exception of the really cool packaging, Boom Bip's album bears little in common with the above mentioned efforts – those being forward-looking hip hop, and this being quite tough to categorize – which by the way is a complement. It's a really hypnotic wave of unearthly, but warm instrumental soundscapes with occasional spare vocals. It's in the vein of Four Tet's work, but it's still very much Boom Bip's own animal. Guest vocalists include Super Furry Animal Gruff Rhys and Nina Nastasia. Tracks include "Cimple", "The Move", "Do's & Don'ts", "Girl Toy", "Dumb Day", "Eyelashings", "Soft & Open", "One Eye Round The Warm Corner", "Aplomb" and "The Matter (Of Our Discussion)" featuring Nina Nastasia.

Jonas Cambien TrioWe Must Mustn't We ... CD
Clean Feed (Portugal), 2018. New Copy ... $13.99
A record that announces its difference right from the very first note – then keeps on setting itself apart with each new musical selection! The group's led by pianist Jonas Cambien – who can play both warmly and starkly – and the sound is balanced between the drums and percussion of Andreas Wildhagen, and the reed work of Andre Roligheten – who blows tenor, soprano, bass clarinet, and flute – often with textural tones that fold in nicely alongside the piano and drums! Yet despite that statement, there's also no set style to the group – as they really explore different interpolations of their instruments on every track – often in ways that seem to have an inherent structure, but which are also strikingly new as well – maybe even more powerful because of their tuneful inclinations than if the musicians were more free-minded. Titles include "Creationism", "Swear Like A Bear", "Unlikely Friendship", "Long Long Long", "Sister You Proved Me Right", "Crib", and "Animalism". CD

Robert Cohen-SolalLes Shadoks (with 7 inch) ... LP
WRWTFWW (Switzerland), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy Gatefold ... $26.99
Weird and wild sounds from the equally weird and wild French animated series at the end of the 60s – served up here by a classically-trained musician who also had a lot of experience with electro-acoustic sounds at the GRM studios! The music here is a dark mix of familiar elements – with use of cello, violin, clarinet, flute, bass, and drums – but often at a level that feels more electric than acoustic – mixed with keyboards and some guitar, yet also clearly processed a lot as part of the production! Away from the cartoon, the music feels very spooky and odd – really more in a Pierre Henry mode than you might expect, although a bit playful from time to time. Titles include "Theme Gibi Classique", "Cosmogol 999 Carburant De La Fusee Gibi", "Ambiance Nouilles", "Guerre Musicale", "La Planete A Poissons", "Faux Depart", "Fuite Des Shadoks", "La Machine A Pomper Dite Cosmopompe", and "Les Humeurs Geophysiques De La Plante Shadok".

✨✧ Pino DonaggioHowling (180 gram colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Waxwork, 1981. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $19.99
Beautiful music for this early 80s horror classic – a film that gets a bit more serious musical treatment than some of its contemporaries! In an era when so many horror composers were turning towards a keyboard-heavy sound, Pino Donaggio still has plenty of full orchestrations here – moody strings that seem to inherit a bit of a Morricone legacy, mixed with other odd, offbeat touches on insolated instruments – used spaciously, in that "less is more creepy" sort of way. Most tracks are short, and work together beautifully – with a vividly narrative quality – and titles include "Doctor's Orders", "Wolf Bites Man", "Animal Magnetism", "Fur From The Maddening Crowd", and "Eddie Lives Again". LP also features a number of bonus tracks – including five synth instrumentals. LP, Vinyl record album

Nothing canned here – as the sound, style, and groove of the record is as fresh and freaky as the classic image on the cover! The riffing rhythms get going right from the start – some amazing lines from a rhythm combo that includes Joe Beck on guitar, Herb Bushler on bass, Jim Madison on drums, and the mighty Ray Mantilla on percussion – adding in these extra changes and fills that really get the tunes moving wonderfully – providing a perfect platform for Joe Farrell's wonderful work on tenor, soprano, baritone, and flute! The sax lines are as angular as the rhythms – tight, choppy, and completely funky – no wonder the record's a CTI classic that folks have dug for years! Tracks are all nice and long – and titles include "Canned Funk", "Animal", and "Spoken Silence". LP, Vinyl record album

Peter Gabriel gets a bit bolder and more confident here in his solo role – coming out with some of the bite of his Rael character from years back, but with a tighter, more focused mode that's pretty darn great! You can hear the early touch of the styles that would wander too strongly into the wrong territory a decade later – but here, things are all pretty darn fresh – wrapped around song themes that feel like very new ones for Gabriel, in ways that almost have you feeling him pick and choose the topics as the record moves on. Production is tight, but never too uptight – and titles include "On The Air", "DIY", "Exposure", "Animal Magic", "Flotsam & Jetsam", "Perspective", and "White Shadow". LP, Vinyl record album

Golliwogs (Creedence Clearwater Revival)Fight Fire – The Complete Recordings 1964 to 1967 ... LP
Fantasy/Craft, Mid 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99 29.99
Fantastic freaky sounds by The Golliwogs – the group who later morphed into Creedence Clearwater Revival – but who already sound pretty great themselves! The style is close to Creedence, but nicely different too – much more garage rock overall, with the vocals of John Fogerty maybe tuned more towards a sound used by The Animals – although his guitar work also has plenty of fuzz! There's a definite influence from R&B, but maybe not as pronounced as in later years – and all the charms of CCR are clearly bubbling right there under the surface. The tracks were all recorded by Fantasy Records in the early days, and for years were considered something of a footnote to their later fame – but taken together here, they're more than strong enough to stand on their own. This new Craft presentation is the best they've ever looked, too – as the package has very detailed notes, and information on all the original recordings – with 23 titles that include "You Came Walking", "Little Tina", "Don't Tell Me No Lies", "Brown Eyed Girl", "Fight Fire", "Walking On The Water", "You Can't Be True", "She Was Mine", "Gonna Hang Around", "Call It Pretending", "Little Girl", and even an "Action USA Spot".

Def Jam, 2011. Used ... $3.99
The long-teased, finally delivered joint full length from Jay-Z and Kanye West. It's impossible to consider the music purely on its own terms given the outsized personalities and absolutely gigantic presences of both – which makes it pretty fascinating. It's definitely not on the level of the best solo albums by either force, but it's probably a whole lot better than it's being dismissed as in some circles. Bottom line – it's worth picking up. We'll see how history treats it. Includes "No Church In The Wild" feat Frank Ocean, "Lift Off" with Beyonce, "Ni**as In paris", the single "Otis" with that reanimated Otis Redding vocal, "Gotta Have It", "New Day", "That's My B**ch", "Why I Love Yu" feat Mr Hudson and more.

A few tunes are instrumental, and the songs hold together well with similar themes – but overall, the approach is the same as the classic Kinks' late 60s pop style – great in our book any day!

Albert MangelsdorffAlbert Mangelsdorff & His Friends (180 gram pressing) ... LP
MPS (Germany), 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $24.99 34.99
German trombonist Albert Manglesdorff goes toe-to-toe with an amazing line-up of avant garde mainstays in duet settings for this MPS classic – including Don Cherry, Elvin Jones, Karl Berger, Attila Zoller, Lee Konitz, and Wolfgang Dauner! The format is simple; each of the seven tracks was blueprinted by Manglesdorff for his thick, punchy trombone blasts to mix it up with one other guy and their respective instrument. The wild lead off track "I Dig It – You Dig It" is a killer – pairing Albert with Don Cherry's trumpet. The duo trade long, fluid lines that descend into atonal sputters and thumps, and even seem to mimic wild animal gestures before falling back into formation! Another standout is the cut "Outox" with guitarist Atilla Zoller, whom Mangelsdorff found a groove with on the late 60s festival scene. Other tracks include "My Kind Of Time" with frenetic drumming by Elvin Jones, "Way Beyond Cave" with pounding vibes by Karl Berger, "Al-Lee" with alto sax by Lee Konitz, and the closer "My Kind Of Beauty" with piano by Wolfgang Dauner. It's all crisply remastered, and nicely packaged, too! LP, Vinyl record album

Larger group meditations by the Modern Jazz Quartet – working here in an expanded lineup that includes work from Phil Woods, Charlie Mariano, Seldon Powell, Richie Kamuca, Clark Terry, and Jimmy Cleveland! The album takes a core MJQ groove, and only seems to lay out out over the larger arrangements as backing – almost as if the set were recorded in two parts, and stitched together – but in a way that works with a brilliant sense of counterpart, one that brings a lot more soul and color to the group's work than usual. Titles include versions of the John Lewis numbers "One Never Knows", "Animal Dance", "The Golden Striker", "Django", and "Home" – plus Milt Jackson's "Ralph's New Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

Animated Cartunes, 2011. Used ... $8.99
Georgia Anne Muldrow pays tribute to her mother, Rickie Byars Beckwith, a musician and all around artistic force herself on Owed To Mama Rickie – Ms. Muldrow's second album from Animated Cartunes (out of who knows how many surprisingly great albums in the preceding few years) – and quite appropriately, it's among her most spiritual and soulful efforts to date! Georgia is one of those very rare modern funk, soul and hip hop figures, along with the mighty Madlib, with an indefatigable creative energy and who has yet to disappoint. You had to figure that she'd bring her deepest sensibilities for an album as close to her heart as Owed To Mama Rickie, and she does just that. Searching, spiritual lyricism shines this time out – with 4 tracks that share writing credits with Michael & Rickie Byars Beckwith – but there's still quite a bit funk in the production. Honestly, if she's gonna put records out even half this good each time out, we're hoping she continues to drop a couple or three albums a year! Includes "Zulu (The Mind)", "Dr. Feelgood", "EZ Duz It", "Mother, Father, God", "The Jump Rope Song", "The Key", "Love Letter", "Whollyspirit", "Dubby Time!", "More & More" feat Bilal (plus a bonus track remix by our friend Terry Cole of Colemine Records) and "Moonsong Lullabye".

Alan PriceTwice The Price – The Decca Recordings (Price To Pay/Price On His Head/singles) (3CD set) ... CD
Decca/Edsel (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 3CD ... $18.99
Fantastic sounds from Alan Price – a singer who first got his start in The Animals, but quickly burst forth as a solo act on his own – working in an equally great mix of jazz, blues, and soul! Price is a hell of a talent – and one that was never as strongly recognized on our shores – and like his contemporary Georgie Fame, he also is a crack pianist and organ player – both instruments he uses strongly to accompany the gritty grooves on this set. And in fact, if you like Georgie Fame's 60s recordings, you'll find a lot here to love too – no surprise that the two artists later teamed up together – and the package features both of Alan's albums for Decca, plus a whopping 19 more singles that may well represent the best of the bunch – all tracks that didn't appear on the albums. 44 tracks in all – with titles that include "Love Story", "Tappy Tortoise", "Never Be Sick On A Sunday", "Any Day Now", "Tickle Me", "Who Cares", "The Time Has Come", "The Trimdon Grange Explosion", "Come & Dance With Me", "So Long Dad", "Don't Do That Again", "The House That Jack Built", "Goin Down Slow", and "Move On Drifter".

Very early electronic sound library material from Eric Siday – so much so, that all these tracks were originally issued as 78rpm singles – at a time before the sound library scene moved into using full LPs! A number of cuts here were used as early passages on the first Doctor Who episodes – and others follow nicely in a similar vein – with very bold, powerful explorations of the earliest elements of analogue electronics – and an especially strong ear for the darker side of the spectrum! Most numbers here are never too noisy – not as much so as avant compositional work of the time – but they hang on the edge in a really great way, creating a lot of stark spacey elements with just a few deft touches. Titles include "Comet", "Ultimate", "Moonscape", "Galaxy", "Suspended Animation", "The Machines", "Pavane", "Pizzicato Piano", "Challenge Of Space", and "Eclipse". LP, Vinyl record album

Frank SinatraStanding Room Only (3CD set) ... CD

A beautiful tribute to the live genius of Frank Sinatra – a 3CD package that not only includes three unreleased concert performances – but one that also features a book with rare photos too! Sinatra live is almost a completely different animal than Sinatra on studio albums – as Frank's got this sharp edge that really comes through – and which can even make the ballads feel a bit dangerous, depending on the setting! Sinatra's certainly a crowd-pleasing entertainer, but up on the stage – even a large one – he's also always completely his own man, and he makes no bones about that – especially when he delivers a bit of dialogue! The package features a 16 track show recorded in Las Vegas in 1966 at The Sands; a 1974 concert recorded at The Spectrum in Philadelphia, with 17 tracks; and a 24 track concert recorded at the Reunion Arena in Dallas, in 1987 – maybe one of the last stretches when you could still get a good live show out of Frank!

The dramatic return of the Slits – sounding incredible here on this second album! The set's not as rough and ragged as their first effort – but is still also fairly groundbreaking stuff – mixing up dub and post-punk styles with an almost British avant sensibility that has the whole thing coming together beautifully – and with a righteous power that made the trio one of the most important female acts of the postpunk years. The girls' sense of humor and interplay holds all tracks together wonderfully, and the album's filled with enigmatic little tunes that include "Earthbeat", "Or What It Is", "Face Place", "Walk About", "Animal Space/Spacier", "Life On Earth", and "Improperly Dressed".

Talking HeadsFear Of Music ... LP
Sire, 1979. Very Good+ ... $19.99
A really tremendous album from The Talking Heads – and a set that moves far past their already-great early records, to really show a rhythmic complexity we never would have expected! Brian Eno is helping the group in the studio again here, and the record really shows both David Byrne and Eno's late 70s fascination with global rhythms – elements that are often used in spare, simple little ways to really help inflect the tunes with a playful imagination that goes way beyond the colder post-punk and new wave of most of their contemporaries! The balance of previous aesthetics with these new grooves is wonderful – heard to great effect on the classic club cut "I Zimbra" – but brewing up strongly underneath on gems that include "Mind", "Paper", "Cities", "Life During Wartime", "Memories Can't Wait", "Air", "Heaven", "Animals", "Electric Guitar", and "Drugs".

Mainstream/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $13.99
David Young may not be the biggest name in the jazz history books, but we'll always remember him fondly for this great little album on Mainstream – a set that's maybe one of the more spiritual session on the label in the early 70s! Young plays tenor, and he's got a group that's all-hip, all the way through – with Virgil Jones on trumpet, Sonny Fortune on baritone and flute, Harold Mabern on piano, Richard Davis on bass, and Idris Muhammad on drums! There's definitely currents here that echo some of the work that Fortune and Mabern would soon do on Strata East – as the tunes have an offbeat, soulful vibe – partly lyrical, partly swinging – but also with lots of Young's own voice in the mix, too. The Mainstream Records production brings out some of the warmer currents in the music – and titles include "Pisces On The Cusp", "For You With Love", "Down Yonder", "Joe Splivingates", "Friday The Fourteenth" and "Animated Suspension".

A really great take on the style of the funky compilation – one that mixes in lots of gritty garagey rock tracks along with a bit of vintage soul! The blend here is surprisingly seamless – as the rocking tracks often have a funky kind of groove, and the soul cuts sometimes have trippier elements in the mix – which makes the whole thing come together with a strongly color-blind sense of sound – even though things are pretty darn soulful throughout! Most numbers are from rare singles, but there's also some unreleased cuts – and very detailed liner notes that shed plenty of light on these very groovy sounds.

Bill Brewster's taught us plenty about music over the years – both as a writer and dancefloor historian, and with some of his ultra-cool collections for various labels! But this time around, Bill tells us as much about himself as he does the history of popular music – by tying together some of his favorite records of the 70s and 80s, in a mix of modes that's nicely loose, and which features loads of great surprises along the way! The set's not your standard mix of funk and dancefloor tracks – as the vibe here is maybe more like some of those cool celebrity-chosen collections from a decade or so back – like the great Trip series, or some of its contemporaries. And although we always thought Brewster really knew a lot about music, he really blows us away here – with a huge amount of tracks that we'd never heard before, all working together in great new ways in the setting. Titles include "Maranatha" by Latin Breed, "Rhythm Kung Fu" by Banzai, "Cartoon People" by Freddi & Henchi, "Life In The Big City" by The General, "No Limit" by Final Edition, "Issmak" by Apatchi Band, "Reggae Makossa" by Brent Dowe & The Gaytones, "Rejoice" by Agape, "Animal Rhapsody (version)" by The Raincoats, "Side A Side B" by Deborah & The Puerto Ricans, "Walk On The Wild Side" by Jeff Duff, "Crazy Beat" by Motion, "Turning Back" by Peter Accident, "Family Prayer" by Clifton King, "Night Images (Swayzak early mid afternoon mix)" by Larry Heard, "Excursion 2" by B McCarthy & Rasoul, "What Time It Is (part 2 – Bill Brewster edit)" by General Crook, and "Don't Stay For Breakfast" by Stroer.

Fantasy/Decision, 1983. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A mindblowing debut from Cybotron – one of the most unusual groups to ever hail from Detroit – and that's saying a hell of a lot, given the musical legacy of the city! Cybotron have a sound that's starkly electronic, and a huge influence on later electro, hip hop, techno, and house – served up here as a spare, fuzzy approach to funk – but with lots of the colder touches you'd find from post-punk imports at the time! The blend is quite unique, and even more unusual given the fact that the trio were working in virtual obscurity on the Detroit scene – as an early project from the legendary Juan Atkins, with guitarist Jon-5, and the mysterious electronician 3070! There's more funk here than most of the group's electro contemporaries – but the sound is still nicely cold in all the right parts too – and titles include the seminal "Clear", which was years ahead of its time – plus "Cosmic Cars", "Cosmic Raindance", "Industrial Lies", "The Line", and "Alleys Of Your Mind". CD reissue also features some nice bonus cuts – including "Clear (Jose Animal Diaz rmx)", "Cosmic Cars (Detroit style mix)", "Techno City (voc)", "Techno City (inst)", "R-9 (inst)", and "Eden (voc)".

A surprisingly great early album from Jan Hammer – the keyboardist who went onto do some pretty drecky albums in later years, but who still has a surprising amount of sensitivity at this point! The session's a bit of a concept outing – recorded by Hammer after work in Mahavishnu Orchestra, but done in a personal, almost intimate style that's quite different than the overblown affair you might expect. Many tunes simply feature solo piano contemplating the themes, plus additional keyboards and synthesizer as the album moves on – and a bit of additional percussion and violin. There's a lyrical beauty here we never expected in Hammer's work – and titles include "Oceans & Continents", "Fourth Day", "Darnkess/Earth In Search Of A Sun", and "The Animals".

Leroy Gomez heads the group on vocals and alto sax – and brings a slight Latin flourish to the album – mixing strings with some brassier "Spanish" horns and acoustic guitars – used here in a way that predates the Gypsy Kings' move onto the dancefloor many years later. Side one is taken up completely by an extended reading of "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood" – which runs into the "Esmeralda Suite", really just an extension of the first number. Side two continues the "oldies" mode of the first with a cover of "Gloria" – then rolls into the original tunes "You're My Everything" and "Black Pot". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Spirit12 Dreams Of Dr. Sardonicus ... CD
Epic, 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The crowning achievement of Spirit – and a record that you probably could have found in any college dorm room in the early 70s! The record's really a cut above for their generation – an expansive effort that hangs together with a bit of a concept, and which interweaves strands of rock, folk, and a bit of jazz – yet also a record that has a lot more polish than other efforts of its type, and which trades a bit of psychedelic indulgence for a tighter focus that really lets the best tunes sparkle wonderfully! Production is great – clear, but trippy at the same time – and Randy California's guitar work has never sounded better. Titles include "Nature's Way", "Animal Zoo", "Love Has Found A Way", "Mr Skin", "Soldier", "Street Worm", and "Space Child". CD

✨✧ VariousI Said, She Said, Ah Cid – The Exploito Psych World Of Alshire Records 1967 to 1970 (3CD set) ... CD
Alshire/Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 3CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A totally wonderful look at the late 60s Alshire label – an unusual cheapo imprint on the LA scene of the time, one that was mostly created to cash in on mainstream trends – but which somehow managed to make some amazing music in the process! Alshire was one of those discount store labels that tried to fool shoppers into thinking they were buying something hip – but instead sold them its own homegrown versions of psych, garage, or other groovy styles of the time. Yet despite these sneaky motives, the label actually found a way to bring together really interesting studio talents for their efforts – which has resulted in a legacy that's made some of their albums collectors treasures over the years – even if the process and contents are sometimes a mystery! This set does a great job of getting to the heart of the mystery – by offering up a huge booklet of notes that includes way more information than the label ever gave you with their records – notes on their history, the background performers, and other information – along with 82 tracks from the label's catalog. CD 1 features three full albums – the self-titled Animated Egg psych classic, plus Sounds Of Today and Astro Sounds From Beyond The Year 2000, both issued under the name of 101 Strings. CD 2 is dedicated entirely to The California Poppy Pickers – maybe the best-known group to come from the Alshire stable – with 26 tracks that include a few originals, and their fantastic reworking of other folks' tunes. CD 3 features 26 more tunes – recorded by artists who include The Mustang, Icarus, Doctor Marigold's Prescription, Autumn, Modern Sounds, Jane & Eve & The Creations, John Bunyan's Progressive Pilgrims, and The Heads Of The Family. Fantastic – and long overdue! CD

Heavenly Sweetness (France), 2010. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
The first full length from Blundetto – a Parisian radio programmer and artist showing impeccable taste here – with a slyly dubby and reggae & soul influenced groove and featuring collaborations with The Budos Band horns, Chico Mann, Tommy Guerrero, Lateef The Truthspeaker, Shawn Lee, Genreal Elektricks and Hindi Zahra! Blundetto shares compositional credits with the guest, and it has the feel of collaboration with that atmopherically soulful core groove. Really nice work for the Heavenly Sweetness label!

✨✧ MoondogSnaketime Series By Moondog (aka Moondog) ... LP
Moondog, 1956. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the best early albums from the legendary Moondog – a set that got wider circulation than his first few releases, and really helped expand his reach beyond New York City! Moondog's still at his simple best here – working in a blend of rhythmic percussion, stringed instruments, flute, and other rootsy instrumentation – all with echoes of Eastern styles, but served in a way that definitely has more of a touch of American exotica! All numbers are played by small groups – or even solo by Moondog – and any vocalizations take on almost an instrumental feel – sliding in alongside sound effects, animal noises, and other obscure utterings. The album's almost the art world equivalent of Martin Denny – but has a lot more depth than easy kitsch – and is still tremendously powerful stuff all these years later! Titles include "Caribea", "Big Cat", "Frog Bog", "To A Sea Horse", "Surf Session" and "Trees Against The Sky". This reissue is the original version of the record that was also issued as Moondog on Prestige. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Horace SilverTotal Response – United States Of Mind Phase 2 ... LP
Blue Note, 1972. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Horace Silver at his most righteous – stepping out here in the amazing Phase 2 of his United States Of The Mind series – with some heavy vocals from the great Andy Bey! The grooves are more complicated than Silver was laying down a few years before – yet still equally soulful – and in addition to vocals by Bey, and his sister Salome, the group also features Silver on electric piano, plus Cecil Bridgewater on trumpet & fluegelhorn, Harold Vick on tenor sax, and Bob Cranshaw on bass, Richie Resnicoff on guitar and Mickey Roker on drums – a sweet little combo who really open up with a hip, righteous groove! The titles probably give more information about the tracks than we ever could, and include "Acid, Pot, Or Pills", "Soul Searchin", "What Kind Of Animal Am I", "I've Had A Little Talk", and "Big Business".

✨✧ Giuliano SorginiZoo Folle (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
An incredible lost jazz funk soundtrack by Guiliano Sorgini – one of the best we've been lucky enough to discover in ages – all the more fascinating given the film it was made for! The soundtrack is a wild one for the most part, with a few more elegiac sounding numbers – but weighted heavily overall with feverish percussion, Hammond, Moog and other keys and synths – along with funky flute and bass on the wilder numbers, and more elegant classical guitar and strings on the more meditative ones. It's a fascinating mix of styles considering the subject – a mid 70s documentary expose on the poor conditions suffered by animals in zoos and circuses, made by Riccardo Fellini, the brother cinema legend Federico. Amazing stuff, issued properly here for the first time ever! Includes "Mad Town", "Ultima Caccia", "Amboseli", "Space And Freedom", "Zoo Folle", "Chains", "Red, Old Skies" with Edda Dell'Orso, "Slaves" and "Rom-Londr-Parigi". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Klaus Doldinger & Giorgio MoroderNeverending Story (with bonus tracks) ... CD
EMI/SFE (UK), 1984. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A sweet little soundtrack to this mid-80s animated feature – one that definitely delivers some excellent moments from Giorgio Moroder, in the style of his famous work on other films – and one that also includes some surprisingly nice sounds from German fusion musician Klaus Doldinger too! The set begins with a catchy pop tune by Limahl, but the Moroder material is much nicer – driving electro tracks in Giorgio's best style – the kind he first forged behind famous disco singers, then branched out even more strongly on his own – with a sound that's very much at home in the 80s! Doldinger's material is different than his work with the Passport group – more lyrical and surprisingly tuneful, too – almost setting the scene for Anime soundtrack work in generations to come. Limal sings "The Never Ending Story"; Moroder tunes include "Ruined Landscape", "Sleepy Dragon", "Ivory Tower", and "Swamps Of Sadness"; and Doldinger tracks include "Gmork", "Theme Of Sadness", "Fantasia", "Atrejeu's Quest", and "The Auryn". CD also features a 12" mix of "Ivory Tower" by Moroder, and five more mixes of "The Never Ending Story – including one in French! CD

✨✧ Laughing HyenasMerry Go Round (2LP pressing – with bonus tracks) ... LP
Touch & Go/Third Man, 1987. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The nicely fleshed out, 2LP version of the debut EP by Laughing Hyenas – some of the fiercest underground rock ever to come out of the state of Michigan! Even at this early point, there's a brooding, postpunk bluesy vibe at times, but the most fiery quality here is John Brannon's vocals – a seriously throat-shredding instrument that makes even the moodier tracks pretty incendiary. The band makes one hell of a caterwauling roar at their most intense, but they're capable of a moodier sound, too, even at this early point. Includes "Stain", "Hell's Kitchen", "That Girl", "Gabriel", "Play Ground", "What Tomorrow Brings", "Soul Kiss". "Candy", "Dedications To The One I Love", "Don't Bouge My High" and "Public Animal #9".

✨✧ Albert MangelsdorffAlbert Mangelsdorff & His Friends ... CD
MPS (Germany), 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
German trombonist Albert Manglesdorff goes toe-to-toe with an amazing line-up of avant garde mainstays in duet settings for this MPS classic – including Don Cherry, Elvin Jones, Karl Berger, Attila Zoller, Lee Konitz, and Wolfgang Dauner! The format is simple; each of the seven tracks was blueprinted by Manglesdorff for his thick, punchy trombone blasts to mix it up with one other guy and their respective instrument. The wild lead off track "I Dig It – You Dig It" is a killer – pairing Albert with Don Cherry's trumpet. The duo trade long, fluid lines that descend into atonal sputters and thumps, and even seem to mimic wild animal gestures before falling back into formation! Another standout is the cut "Outox" with guitarist Atilla Zoller, whom Mangelsdorff found a groove with on the late 60s festival scene. Other tracks include "My Kind Of Time" with frenetic drumming by Elvin Jones, "Way Beyond Cave" with pounding vibes by Karl Berger, "Al-Lee" with alto sax by Lee Konitz, and the closer "My Kind Of Beauty" with piano by Wolfgang Dauner. It's all crisply remastered, and nicely packaged, too! CD

✨✧ Masahiko SatoBelladonna ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), 1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the rarest albums ever from the mighty Masahiko Sato – a Japanese musician we love for his jazz, funk, and psychedelic sounds – all of which come into play on this unusual animated soundtrack! The music is plenty trippy right from the start – very offbeat, from the instrumentation to the production to the pacing – never in a mode that's too avant, but which is very much its own thing – as Sato weaves a way forward with cool spacey keyboards, slow-brooding basslines, and these dreamy vocals from singer Chinatsu Nakayama! Some moments feel like the best funky electric Italian sound library material of the time – but there's also a lot more going on, too – including some of that great style Sato would use on other albums, when he'd blend psychedelic inspiration with very groovy jazz. Titles include "Funny Feeling", "Mr London", "Andy Warhol", "Belladonna", "The Notice Is Notice", "Take It Easy", and "TBSF". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousQuare Groove Vol 1 – A Collection Of Irish Groove, Punk Funk & Electro ... LP
All City (Ireland), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
What? Irish funk? We thought we knew everything – but if there's one thing we're learning to know, it's that there's still a heck of a lot of great music for us to discover! The vibe here is hipper than you might expect – mostly handled by blued-eyed soul artists, but who've clearly gotten a lot of inspiration from American soul and funk of the 70s – even when the music moves into the post-punk years, and sounds get a bit more electro soul! The style here is different than British funk of the period – not surprising, given that Ireland never had the same post-colonial heritage that made for lots of criss-crossing on the London scene – and if anything, we'd be most likely to compare this work to some of the best Australian soul that emerged in the 70s – from artists like Renee Geyer, Rocco, and others – although there's a few numbers here that also feel a bit like the funkier work from A Certain Ratio. Titles include "Welcome Back Into My Life" by Pumphouse Gang, "Hot & Sexable" by Natural Wild, "Hyperspace" by Those Nervous Animals, "Give It To Me" by Sunshine, "White Fields" by Stano, "Losing Control" by Barry Warner, "Just Like Me" by Some Kind of Wonderful, and a very early Microdisney track titled "Leper".

Philips/Polysom (Brazil), 1964. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of Jorge Ben's greatest albums – a groundbreaking blend of samba and soul that forever went onto transform the face of Brazilian music! The record works off the groove set down by Jorge's earlier hit "Mas Que Nada" (which appears on another LP), and takes the blend of bossa, samba, and jazz, and infuses it with a sense of folksy soul delivered by Jorge's raspy vocals and acoustic guitar work. The combination of styles works perfectly – and every track on the album sparkles with a sense of excitement and new musical discovery that will probably blow away most of the recent records you've bought for your collection! Titles include "Nena Nana", "Espero Por Voce", "Nao Desanima, Joao", "Carnaval Triste", "Gimbo", "Capoeira", and "Anjo Azul". LP, Vinyl record album

Rare live material from the great Jacques Brel – almost all of which has never been issued before, and stands as a much-needed addition to his catalog of classics in the 60s! The recordings are great – done for radio, and re-presented here with fidelity that's every bit as rich as Brel's live recordings on Philips – which, like these tracks, really show the sense of animation and expression that Jacques brought to his presentation of his lyrics – the sense of wit and intelligence that always made Brel the best (and possibly only) true interpreter of his songs! The tunes are the stuff of legend – biting commentary on love, live, and postwar French society – with backings from the larger Olympia Orchestra on most tracks, plus accordion by Jean Corti, and piano by Francois Rauber. Titles include "Bruxelles", "La Statue", "Rosa", "La Valse A Mille Temps", "Seul", "La Dame Patronnesse", "Les Singes", "Les Paumes Du Petit Matin", "L'Ivrogne", and "Quand On A Que L'Amour". CD

WRWTFWW (Switzerland), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Weird and wild sounds from the equally weird and wild French animated series at the end of the 60s – served up here by a classically-trained musician who also had a lot of experience with electro-acoustic sounds at the GRM studios! The music here is a dark mix of familiar elements – with use of cello, violin, clarinet, flute, bass, and drums – but often at a level that feels more electric than acoustic – mixed with keyboards and some guitar, yet also clearly processed a lot as part of the production! Away from the cartoon, the music feels very spooky and odd – really more in a Pierre Henry mode than you might expect, although a bit playful from time to time. Titles include "Theme Gibi Classique", "Cosmogol 999 Carburant De La Fusee Gibi", "Ambiance Nouilles", "Guerre Musicale", "La Planete A Poissons", "Faux Depart", "Fuite Des Shadoks", "La Machine A Pomper Dite Cosmopompe", and "Les Humeurs Geophysiques De La Plante Shadok".

Beautiful keyboard lines from Phil France – served up here in a mode that's partly jazz, maybe partly more laidback – and often in the kind of slow-building style we love on other records on the Gondwana label! There's almost a meditative vibe to the music – somewhere in the Carlos Nino/Miguel Atwood-Ferguson mode, but maybe more compact – as Phil's keyboards are mixed with light use of violin and cello, plus some additional sound elements as well – all in a way that makes us almost think that France would be great at scoring soundtracks, although these instrumental tunes have a nicely changed-up sense of complexity overall. Much deeper than just the usual "soundscape" album you might mistake this one for – with tracks that include "December", "Animator", "London Park Hotel", "Kubrick", "Joy Of Brass", and "The Swimmer".

✨✧ Golliwogs (Creedence Clearwater Revival)Fight Fire – The Complete Recordings 1964 to 1967 ... CD
Fantasy/Craft, Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Fantastic freaky sounds by The Golliwogs – the group who later morphed into Creedence Clearwater Revival – but who already sound pretty great themselves! The style is close to Creedence, but nicely different too – much more garage rock overall, with the vocals of John Fogerty maybe tuned more towards a sound used by The Animals – although his guitar work also has plenty of fuzz! There's a definite influence from R&B, but maybe not as pronounced as in later years – and all the charms of CCR are clearly bubbling right there under the surface. The tracks were all recorded by Fantasy Records in the early days, and for years were considered something of a footnote to their later fame – but taken together here, they're more than strong enough to stand on their own. This new Craft presentation is the best they've ever looked, too – as the package has very detailed notes, and information on all the original recordings – with 23 titles that include "You Came Walking", "Little Tina", "Don't Tell Me No Lies", "Brown Eyed Girl", "Fight Fire", "Walking On The Water", "You Can't Be True", "She Was Mine", "Gonna Hang Around", "Call It Pretending", "Little Girl", and even an "Action USA Spot".

Svart (Finland), 1971. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
One of the most unusual albums we've ever heard from Finnish reed legend Eero Koivistoinen – a set of music composed for children – but with a wild sound that must have sent more than a few kids running from the room back in the 70s! Koivistoisen's reeds are only part of the sound here – as there's larger orchestrations from the UMO Jazz Orchestra, some electronics from the University Of Helsinki music studio, and even lots of weird sound effects and animal noises – which only seem to make the whole thing sound even more unsettling! There's a bit of voice at points – the music was based around the poetry of Kirsi Kunnas – but most of the sounds are instrumental, and only seem to get weirder and wilder as the album moves on. Titles include "Fanfaari Kinkulle", "Pikku Paimen", "Sammakkokeitto", "Jussin Talo", "Ville Ja Valle", and "Herra Pii Poo". LP, Vinyl record album

Finders Keepers (UK), 1982. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The Moomins comics have delighted the world for generations – but fewer folks have seen the early 80s Moomins TV show – which is a masterpiece of felt-based, stop-motion animation! And while the images on the screen are amazing, the music for the program is equally great – spare, slow electronic numbers that have a beautifully playful vibe, but something of a dark edge too – maybe much more in the mode of more whimsical underground electronic work from the early 70s than you'd guess from the date of the show! The program was animated in Poland, and some of these tunes have a style that's similar to the coolest Polish electronic sound library material we've stocked over the years – although the musicians themselves were actually part of the post punk scene in Leeds. Titles include "Creepers", "Piano Waltz", "Leaving Moomin Valley", "Hobgoblin's Hat", "Traveling Theme", "Midwinter Rites", "Woodland Band", and "Comet Shadow". CD

Warner (Australia), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A hell of a singer, and a huge giant on the Australian scene of the 60s – maybe the nation's first true giant of rock – and an artist who also took the UK by storm at the time! Normie Rowe is an incredibly charming chap – as inspired by American jazz, blues, and R&B as some of his British contemporaries – but maybe a bit looser and groovier, too – not afraid to be a showman, and maybe put a bit of Bobby Darin sort of spin on some of his numbers! Normie never really rocked our shores, and we're not sure why – because the music here is completely wonderful, and certainly has the sort of appeal of the best material by English groups like The Animals or Manfred Mann. This 30 track CD provides a stunning introduction to his music – and features great sound, heavy notes, and a whopping set of titles that includes "It Ain't Necessarily So", "I Just Don't Understand", "Everything's Alright", "Tell Him I'm Not Home", "Can I Get A Witness", "Going Home", "Mary Mary", "It's Not Easy", "Penelope", "Just To Satisfy You", "Sunshine Secret", "You Can't Stop Loving Me", "Rat Race", "Pride & Joy", and "The Breaking Point".
