✨✧ Katsutoshi MorizonoBad Anima ... CD
Electric Bird/King (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
No bad anima here, as the album's a tight, warm set from guitarist Katsutoshi Morizono – arranged by the leader himself, and featuring a few tracks that also include vocals – which add this surprisingly human quality to an otherwise polished fusion album! Morizono's got a great lineup of sharp Japanese musicians on the date – and the album features loads of keyboards mixed with acoustic elements on tenor, soprano sax, and trumpet – on titles that includes the originals "High Tide", "Midnight Waltz", and "Dark Side Of The Fish" – plus a version of Booker T's "Last Tango In Memphis".

Rodrigo LimaSaga ... CD
JSR (Brazil), New Copy 2 CDs ... $18.99
A great debut from Rodrigo Lima – a double-length set that has the guitarist working in modes that range from Brazilian roots to samba jazz, with lots of stops in between! Lima plays acoustic throughout, and with a deftness that rivals some of his Brazilian predecessors – and that includes some of the best bossa and choro talents as well – and the range of settings in the album is varied, but extremely unified too – thanks to a coherent sense of production and presentation that really holds our interest throughout. Rodrigo invited a surprising range of legends to work with him on the album – including Hubert Laws on flute, Hugo Fattoroso on keyboards, Raul De Souza on trombone, Anat Cohen on tenor and clarinet, Mike Mainieri on vibes, and the great Hermeto Pascoal on piano – and songs range from shorter melodies to these lovely long introspections. Titles include "Porta Aflora", "Vida Nova", "Pilotos", "Opa", "Anima 2", "Cancao Praieira", "A Velha Sozinha", and "Nosso Borogodo Coio". CD

Bruno NicolaiJustine – Original Soundtrack (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1969. New Copy ... $16.99
A sweet little score for an obscure Jess Franco film – one that's a bit straighter than usual for the director! Bruno Nicolai uses a fair bit of strings in his orchestrations here – never too flowery, but often with a classical-inspired sort of sound that leads to full, complicated scoring that's quite a bit different from some of his other work at the time. There's a nice shift between darkness and light in the music – and this 2015 CD version features 27 tracks in all – a number of which have never been released before now! Titles includ "Amazzoni", "Justine", "Burlesca", "Mercato", "La Cortigiana", and "Il Ritorno", "Passioni Dell'Anima", "Mattutino", "Frottola", "Cherchio Magico", "Il Ghiottone" and many more. CD

Paulo BaguncaPaulo Bagunca E A Tropa Maldita ... CD
Continental/Discos Mariposa (Argentina), 1973. New Copy ... $9.99
A Brazilian underground classic from the early 70s – mindblowing work that mixes heavy percussion with lots of guitar – in a style that's samba soul one minute, but heavier rock the next! There's a bit of a Jorge Ben influence going on at times – particularly in the way the record uses quickly-strummed acoustic guitar next to the earthy rhythms – but the overall sound is also a bit more fragile at times, and rougher around the edges, especially at its most expressive moments. But that quality only serves to make the album more striking – an instantly captivating set that needs no previous cultural knowledge at all! Really tremendous stuff – the kind of lost treasure that will have you scratching your head, but loving it at the same time! Titles include "Apelo", "Grinfa Louca", "A Mente", "Tramba", "Madalena", "Mensageiro", "Cristina", "Olhar Animal", and "Microfones Metalicos". CD

Jorge BenSacundin Ben Samba (180 gram vinyl – with bonus CD) ... LP
Philips/Doxy, 1964. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Peter Brotzmann/Han Bennink/Fred Van HoveFMP 0130 ... CD
Atavistic/Unheard Music Series, 1973. Used ... $9.99
Another amazing set of way out jazz, and atonal sound bursts from Brotzmann – and another long lost recording once again available thanks to the Unheard Music Series. This set has the legendary scorcher working in a trio on sax and clarinet, Han Bennick on drums and all sorts of odd percussion bits, and Fred Van Hove on celeste and piano. The key tension of many of Brotzmann's recordings from the era relied on the legendary saxophonist blowing the living hell out of his instrument, while the rest of his crew at the given time struggled to stay in the same orbit. FMP 130 has a bit of a different approach, in that all of the crazed, complicated, and dissonant sound bursts seem to be based on a stop/start dynamic. The group seems to be enjoying themselves, too, with lots of weird, borderline comical sounds approximating animal calls, rolling piano lines that seem to be ironic riffs on boogie woogie and rock & roll playing, and odd tonal shifts. It may not be for everybody, but there's plenty of rewards for the adventurous! 10 tracks including "For Donaueschingen Ever", "Nr. 7", "Gere Bij", "Konzert Fur 2 Klarinetten", and others. CD

Eric Burdon & The AnimalsTwain Shall Meet ... CD
MGM/Sundazed, 1968. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
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". CD

Eric Burdon & The AnimalsWinds Of Change (180 gram mono edition) ... LP
MGM/Sundazed, 1967. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $23.99 24.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Eric Burdon & WarEric Burdon Declares War ... CD
MGM/Rhino, 1970. Used ... $5.99
War became so popular on their own in later years that it's easy to forget how they first sprung onto the soul charts – here, in an album of many styles that was put together by the wayward Eric Burdon after the dissolution of The Animals. We have to admit that Burdon was a genius to hook onto the rich talents of this LA combo – even though he really didn't know what to do with them on this record. Part of the album's an homage to Roland Kirk, part is an extended reworking of "Tobacco Road", and part is an overly-long bluesy passage called "Blues For Memphis Slim". Fortunately, the record also includes the monster groover "Spill The Wine", one of the first big crossover tracks to popularize the Chicano funk sound of LA – and a great little groover that still hooks us in today.

CanSaw Delight (with bonus download) ... LP
Mute, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 20.98
Weird and wonderful work from Can – still standing out way ahead of the pack, even in the late 70s! The album's a great bridge between generations – and an inspiration for some, as well – not as heavy as the early years, but still filled with fuzz and spacey sounds, refined with more focus here – and almost set out as a precursor to the huge German new wave to come – especially the electronics of the AtaTak scene. Titles include the 15 minute "Animal Waves" – plus "Fly By Night", "Call Me", and "Don't Say No". LP, Vinyl record album

Fiorenzo CarpiLe Avventure Di Pinocchio (3CD set) ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1972. New Copy 3CD ... $28.99
One of the weirdest versions of Pinocchio you'll ever see – not the animated cartoon by Disney, but a strange live action production for 70s Italian TV! The music here is surprisingly great – and comes off with a flair that's maybe even more complicated than the images on the screen – a mix of surprisingly sensitive orchestrations with a few lighter melodies that recall some of the work of Nino Rota – but mixed more with some darker 70s elements, as in some of the later Fellini films. This massive 3CD set features a stunning 107 tracks in all – not just the original album, but dozens and dozens of alternate takes, and rare TV cues as well – making for a musical package that may well be more stunning than the strange show itself!

CerroneLove In C Minor/Cerrone's Paradise/Supernature (3LP/3CD set) ... LP
Malligator/Because (France), 1976/1977. New Copy 3LP & 3CD (reissue)... $79.99
A wonderful package – a very limited set that includes the first three albums from Cerrone, with bonus CD versions as well! First up is Love In C Minor – the fantastic first album by Cerrone – a landmark disco record that features the 16 minute long "Love In C Minor" – a swirling bit of strings, beats, and female voices – one of those tunes that forever went onto change the face of dance music in the 70s! Cerrone really set up a whole new blueprint for club here – stretching things out plenty, and layering in subtle time and chord shifts that expose the proggish influences that filtered into French club as the 70s wore on! The title track's got some nice keyboards by the great Alan Hawkshaw – who sounds even better on the album's cool disco version of "Black Is Black" and the tight snare-beat original, "Midnite Lady". Cerrone's Paradise is Cerrone's second album – a swirling mix of disco beats and strings that follows very clearly on the spirit of his landmark first one! Like that album, this one's got a title track that runs well over 15 minutes long – building in a slowly dancing way that says everything about European disco styles that one track could ever hope to do! Other tunes on the album are shorter and tighter – with soulful vocals dancing in and out, and some nice keyboard work that makes the tunes sparkle with a sweet electric groove. Titles include "Take Me", "Time For Love", and "Cerrone's Paradise". Supernature is the height of French disco – a huge worldwide hit for Cerrone, a nutty bit of space disco that actually holds up pretty darn well over the years! The guy's not really a looker – and the strange "animal operation" cover almost makes this look like a prog rock album – which is where Cerrone probably got his inspiration for the incredible keyboard work on the set – but the record's a killer bit of club that went onto influence generations to come – and is arguably one of Cerrone's best moments ever! Includes the classic "Supernature", a catchy disco groover you'll recognize instantly – plus the tracks "Love Is Here", "Love Is The Answer", and "Sweet Drums". LP, Vinyl record album

Ivor CutlerLife In A Scotch Sitting Room Vol 2 ... CD
Virgin/Rev-Ola (UK), 1978. Used ... $9.99
One of the most personal and spontaneous albums ever recorded by Ivor Cutler – a live session that's done in the spirit of his quirky studio albums of the time, but one that's also recorded with a fair bit of crowd response! Ivor recites his stories and poems with spare harmonium backing – effortlessly charming in his whimsical presentation of the material, always tuning his words with just the right timing for the best response. The presence of the audience is really marked here, as it helps the album get past that sometimes-beguiling quality of Ivor's records – those moments where you go "hey, was that a joke or was he serious?" – which are all clearly marked here as jokes by the audience's laughter. Titles include a number of "episodes" of "Life In A Scotch Sitting Room" – plus animal-titled versions of "Jungle Tip" as well! CD

Lyrical combat from Baltimore duo Dirt Platoon – with gritty production by producer Kyo Itachi! The vocals are raw and uncompromising and Itachi wisely lays down hard-hitting beats and spare bits of piano strings and other fairly delicate textures –which are fine foil for the lyrical grit. Includes "Animal S**t", "Dirty Work" with Ruste Juxx, "Old Time Sake", "Brainstorming", "Point Of Attack" with Dro Pesci, Skanks, Shabaam Sahdeeq and Milez Grimez, "Wage War", "Dose Of Reality", "The Closer" and more.

Patrick FitzgeraldSafetey Pins, Secret Lives, & The Paranoid Ward – Best Of Patrick Fitzgerald 1977 to 1986 ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $14.99
Really great work from Patrick Fitzgerald – one of the more surprising talents of the late 70s UK punk scene – and one of the most charming as well! Fitzgerald was raised in East London, and has a heavily accented style – one that really adds a lot to the sense of feeling and power in Patrick's music – which is usually so spare, it just features his own vocals and guitar! Given the accent, and the musical style, Fitzgerald is a key precursor to Billy Bragg – and over the course of the recordings here, Patrick definitely stays truer to his ideals than Billy did – so that even after the passage of many years, these tracks still grab us very strongly. Most of the politics are very personal, and still resonate strongly today – and the 2CD set features a whopping 52 tracks in all, pulled from singles and albums on labels that include Small Wonder, Ellie Jay, and Red Flame. Titles include "Animal Mentality", "Safety Pin Stuck In My Heart", "Banging & Shouting", "Life At The Top", "Paranoid Ward", "Set We Free", "Work Rest Play Reggae", "Conventions Of Life", "My Secret Life", and "Poor John".

Vince GuaraldiBoy Named Charlie Brown – Original TV Soundtrack (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Fantasy, 1964. New Copy ... $10.99 11.99
Vince Guaraldi's wonderful music for the first-ever cartoon to feature the Peanuts characters in animated form – a sublime batch of jazz instrumentals that forever changed the face of music in shows of this nature! Vince steps out with an amazing sound right from the start – even different than his previous jazz records from the San Francisco scene – with a more careful balance of swing and sadness, lyricism and soul – always played in a subtle, understated way that really makes the music come through with a lasting degree of power. Core sounds are from the trio of Guaraldi on piano, Monty Budwig on bass, and Colin Bailey on drums – and titles include key early versions of the "Charlie Brown Theme" and "Linus & Lucy" – plus "Oh Good Grief", Pebble Beach", "Schroeder", and "Blue Charlie Brown". CD features two bonus tracks – "Baseball Theme (alt)" and "Fly Me To The Moon". CD

HavenstreetEnd Of The Line/Perspectives ... CD
Sommer (Spain), Mid 70s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $15.99
A rare album, with a full bonus album of previously-unreleased material – all from the obscure British group Havenstreet – an underground folksy combo who maybe showed up a few years too late on the scene! While most of England in 1977 was bristling with the new energy of punk, these guys made sounds that hearkened back to the best years of the acid folk scene – with all the dark elements, odd anachronistic styles, and unusual phrasing on acoustic instruments that were floating around at the start of the decade. But there's also a forward-thinking sound here, too – one that might make these guys years ahead of their time, instead of behind – really showcasing the way that later waves of indie acts would refine and improve older folksy modes. The strength of the set is surprising – and the package features their rare album The End Of The Line, plus the bonus Perspectives collection of material from the late 70s. Titles include "When The Madcap Meets The World", "Rain", "The Castle", "The Photograph", "After Time", "Suspended Animation", "Grasshopper", "Damascus", "Village Vespers", "The Ballroom Of Despair", and "Family Laughter".
