New Katsutoshi MorizonoBad Anima ... CD CD format
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 CD format
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

New Bruno NicolaiJustine – Original Soundtrack (with bonus tracks) ... CD CD format
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

New Arild AndersenGreen Shading Into Blue ... LP LP format
ECM, 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Seminal 70s side from bassist Arild Andersen! Green Shading Into Blue has a sound that's as evocative as its title – a rich combination of tones, sounds, and moments from a quartet that features Arild Andersen on bass, Juhani Aaltonen on sax and flute, Lars Jansson on piano and a bit of keyboards, and Pal Thowson on drums and percussion. The reeds are especially nice – arcing over the top of the tunes in a spatial contrast to the mellower tones of Andersen's bass – and titles include "Anima", "Jana", "Terhi", "Radka's Samba", and "The Guitarist".

Paulo BaguncaPaulo Bagunca E A Tropa Maldita ... CD CD format
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

Jeb Bishop/Jason Roebke/Frank Rosaly2009 ... CD CD format
Better Animal Recordings, 2009. Used ... $8.99
A remarkably strong trio set from Chicago heavy hitters Jeb Bishop, Jason Roebke and Frank Rosaly – Bishop compositions, some that have been in his arsenal for quite a while, so good for us that they've finally been recorded and with such an excellent couple of players! It must be said that it feels sharp and fresh and not like the fruition of a long brewing process, with ample space for improvisation along with the trio's impeccable sense of melody. Bishop plays trombone, Roebke is on bass and Rosaly is the drummer – each have played on many a top shelf jazz set the over the past decade or more and work together excellently here. Titles include "900", "Dusk", "Jacket Weather", "11 AM Verti Marte", "Full English", "Before And After", "Round Two", "The Lateness Of The Hour" and more. CD

Bo Street RunnersNever Say Goodbye – The Complete Recordings 1964 to 1966 ... CD CD format
Columbia/RPM (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $13.99
The complete recordings of The Bo Street Runners – a group who are probably best known for starting the rock careers of Mick Fleetwood and Mike Patto – but a bluesy little combo who are more than sharp enough on their own! The Runners drink heavily in American blues and R&B at their start – and have a way of serving things up with a stark, soulful groove that often has lots of Chess Records touches around the edges, including a bit of harmonica in the lead – very much in the best early spirit of The Animals and Manfred Mann. Then, as things get going, they really pick up their own sort of confidence in songwriting and expression – especially when singer Patto joins the group – and although the CD only features less than 20 tracks, that's still more than enough to trace the great evolution of the Runners. Titles include "Love To You", "Bo Street Runner", "Shame Shame Shame", "And I Do Just What I Want", "Tell Me", "So Very Woman", "Baby Never Say Goodbye", and "Love". CD

Eric Burdon & The AnimalsTwain Shall Meet (180 gram pressing) ... LP LP format
MGM/Sundazed, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.99
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

Eric Burdon & The AnimalsWinds Of Change (180 gram mono edition) ... LP LP format
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

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 CD format
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!

CerroneCerrone 3 – Supernature ... LP LP format
Cotillion, 1977. Good ... $1.99
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

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!

Ivor CutlerLife In A Scotch Sitting Room Vol 2 ... CD CD format
Virgin/Rev-Ola (UK), 1978. Used ... $11.99
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

Visionary electro soul from Cybotron – with the massively influential "Clear", the nearly as mindblowing "Techno City", and bonus mixes! "Clear" is Cybotron at their best – mixing early 80s future groove with a serious mastery of timeless Detroit funk in the mix. Includes the classic original version and a top notch, wholy respectful remix by Jose Animal Diaz. "Techno City" is another genre-defying gem – with a sleek, future funk production that's great in both the vocal and instrumental versions. 12-inch, Vinyl record

ExceptionEagle Flies On Friday – The Complete Recordings 1967 to 1969 ... CD CD format
President/RPM (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $13.99
A really great group from the late 60s scene in the UK – one who've got some tremendous talents, but have sadly been overlooked for many years! Hopefully, this set will correct that lack – because it brings Exception back into very sharp focus – giving us all the best of their blues-influenced approach, which easily rivals that of Spencer Davis Group or maybe The Animals during their MGM years! The songs are short, and have a nice sort of punch – but often manage to get a lot of unusual bits into the mix – thanks to clever production twists, odd ways of presenting the familiar instruments, and an overall style that goes way past a simple roots rehash, with a definite ear towards the changing times. CD features 26 tracks in all – including a handful of previously-unissued tracks – and titles include "Girl Trouble", "It's Snowing In The Desert", "Back Room", "Tailor Made Babe", "Jack Rabbit", "Penduulum", "Don't Torture Your Mind", "Hong Kong Blues", "Mrs Cocaine", and "Bum's Puzzle".
