Lost & FoundLost & Found (aka Everybody's Here) ... LP
International Artists, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A brilliant set on the legendary International Artists label – a very Love-like record that's filled with colorful tunes – from Houston's Lost & Find, who fit in beautifully with other Texas psyche pioneers of the mid-to-late 60s! Both the vocals and the overall timing of the tunes clearly draw strong inspiration from Love's first few Elektra albums – but that's not a problem for us, because we love that stuff, and really appreciate Lost & Found's take on Arthur Lee's inspiration – one that pushes it a bit into the trippier Texas style psyche and others from the International Artists Roster. Titles include "Everybody's Here", "Forever Lasting Plastic Words","Zig Zag Blues", "I'm So Hip To Pain", "I Realize", "2 Stroke Blues", "Let Me Be" and "Living Eye". LP, Vinyl record album

LoveDa Capo ... CD
Elektra, 1967. Used ... $4.99
A stunning second album from Love – a set that's still without the fuller orchestrations and baroque touches of Forever Changes – but which already shows the group moving in that direction! The rough, gritty edge of the group is very firmly intact – but they've already got a really fresh way of putting over a song – by complicating the rhythms a bit, going for unusual tonal colors, and furthering the really imaginative songwriting of Arthur Lee. Side one features some incredibly haunting shorter tunes that point the way towards Forever Changes – including the insanely wonderful "She Comes In Colors", the Latin-tinged "Que Vida", and the cuts "Stephanie Knows Who", "The Castle", and "Seven & Seven Is". Side two is a total freak-out – an 18 minute bluesy guitar jam, very over the top stuff – and quite unusual in length for a rock album in 1966! CD

LoveFour Sail ... CD
Elektra (UK), 1969. Used ... $7.99
Much more of a hard rock affair than the group's third LP – kind of a return to the heavy guitars of Da Capo after the baroque beauty of Forever Changes – but a stone winner nonetheless! Arthur Lee's genius is still firmly in place, and although there's a back to basics rock feel on the record, it's still touched by the madness that haunted earlier records – and crackles with a drugged-up intensity that would still make it a hell of an album, even if it was the only one the band ever recorded! Titles include "Robert Montgomery", "I'm With You", "Your Friend & Mine – Neil's Song", "August", "Always See Your Face", "Talking In My Sleep", "Nothing", and "Dream". CD features 3 bonus alternate takes too! CD

✨✧ Mazzy StarSo Tonight That I Might See ... LP
Capitol, 1993. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
Mazzy Star's second album and first for Capitol, one of those rare, wonderful moments in the early 90s when a band that had been bubbling just under the popular radar hooked up with a major label and managed to hit both a popular and creative peak! This one really hasn't aged a day since it came out. The songwriting pair of guitarist David Roback and Hope Sandoval – the former transcending pop psych influences as far back as the early 80s in The Rain Parade, the latter with one of the most hauntingly beautiful voices in rock at the time – put together their best, moodiest effort. Includes the breakout hit "Fade Into You", a cool cover of Arthur Lee & Love's then recent "Five String Serenade", "Blue Light", "She's My Baby", "Wasted", "Into Dust", "So Tonight That I Might See", "Mary Of Silence", "Unreflected" and "Bells Ring".

VariousFlip Doo Wop Vol 2 ... CD
Flip/Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. Used ... $4.99
A treasure trove of Los Angeles vocal group material from the earliest days of soul – all pulled together from the vaults of the sweet indie Flip Records, and collected here in a mix of rare singles and some previously unissued tracks! Flip's approach is decidedly hip – served up with some of that west coast style that would add in a key extra instrumental element to the vocal group harmonies, but with more than enough dynamic vocal interplay right up front in the mix – all the kind of energy you'd get from more stripped-down productions from the east, with some genius moments that show that LA was no slouch when it came to matching the group harmonies back in New York and Philly! Titles on this second volume include "Why Don't You Answer" by The Maharajahs, "Heaven In My Arms" by Donald Woods & The Vel-Aires, "Deposit Your Love" by Richard Owens & The Ivy Leaguers, "Teenage Promise" by Trudy Williams & The Six Teens, "Cause You're Mine Alone" by Arthur Lee Maye, "Where You Been So Long" by The Rainiers, "Somewhere There's A Rainbow" by Richard Berry & The Pharoahs, "Looking For You" by The Dukes, "Puddin Pie" by The Lockettes, "Since You've Been Gone" by The Dreamers, and "My Girl" by The Cyclones.

✨✧ DeathFor The Whole World To See ... LP
Drag City, 1975. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pre-punk bit of charged, hard grooving Motor City rock from Death – a lost record that takes a tightly coiled, blazing approach to their influences of garage rock and psychedelia – and a record that's all the better in that it was recorded way back in 1975! To put it bluntly, music didn't really sound like this in '75 – and it would be as easy to label the sound as something like, "mid 70s Detroit African American precursor to Husker Du", etc, but this is a honestly a pretty remarkable album for its time that we don't want to trivialize it with a lazy nutshell description. The group does distill their influences in a way that's reminiscent of some midwestern post punk, but Death is pre-punk, making it a really fascinating record, and a blast to crank up in your headphones! Titles include "Keep On Knocking", "Rock-N-Roll Victim", the longer, seemingly Arthur Lee influenced "Let The World Turn" (eventually nailing a fiercer sound the likes of which Love never messed with), "You're A Prisoner", "Freakin Out", "Where Do We Go From Here???" and "Politicians In My Eyes". 7 songs, 27 minutes, and pretty awesome.

✨✧ LoveBlack Beauty ... Cassette
High Moon, 1973. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Arthur Lee and Love's unreleased record from 1973! Black Beauty is a more diverse and soulful set than a lot of what we've heard from Lee's harder rocking 70s years – and it's given a much-deserved top notch release by High Moon Records! It's raw in the best possible sense, with a live feel, as played by a well-oiled band. It's got some blistering rockers, albeit with a heavy dose of bluesy soul in the mix, and includes some surprisingly effective creative twists – especially the Caribbean-inflected "Beep Beep". This is a really cool record that we're thrilled to see getting some belated love and respect – and most importantly, it's worthy of Arthur Lee's legend. Other tracks include "Young & Able (Good & Evil)", "Midnight Sun", "Can't Find It", "Walk Right In", "Skid", "Stay Away", "Lonely Pigs". "See Myself In You" and "Product Of The Times". Cassette

✨✧ LoveFalse Start ... LP
Blue Thumb, Early 70s. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Later work from Love, and more of an Arthur Lee record than a true group effort – but still pretty nice! There's a hard rocking sound on most of the cuts – very fierce guitars, but also done with a nicely rhythmic approach that has less noodly bits than other groups of the time, and which even comes across as fairly soulful on a few tracks, too! A lot of the soul comes through in Arthur's vocals, which are wonderful, and the album is well worth a discovery. Very underappreciated, which is understandable given the grandure of Arthur Lee's earlier ouvre – but very a worthwhile record the bests most psyche era rock records! Jimi Hendrix played on one number, "The Everlasting First" and other titles include "Feel Daddy Feel Good", "Ride That Vibration", "Love Is Coming", "Slick Dick", "Stand Out", "Keep On Shining", and "Gimi A Little Break".

Sounds Of Soul, 1960s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
27 killer cuts – a beautiful pile of rare soul 45s, with a blend of hard soul, southern soul, northern soul, and sock-boogaloo soul! Titles include "I'm A Fool, I Must Love You" by The Falcons, "All I Want Is You" by Big Al Downing, "You Got It And I Want It" by Andre Williams, "Substitute For Love" by Watson & Williams, "Sally Sue Brown" by Arthur Alexander, "Funky Drop" by Harmonica Fats, "I Hurt Myself" by Lee Shot Williams, "My Mother's A Funky Chicken" by Pat Holben Trio, "Shotgun Wedding" by Roy C, "Man Without A Woman" by Matt Brown, "I'm Walking Away" by Denise Chandler, "Pee Wee" by Robbie Montgomery, "Out Of This World" by Gino Washington, and "Victim Of Circumstance" by Mike & The Censations".

Herb Alpert & Hugh MasekelaHerb Alpert & Hugh Masekela ... CD
A&M/Herb Alpert, 1978. New Copy ... $10.99 11.99
Two top trumpet talents – coming together beautifully on this groovy late 70s set! Both Herb Alpert and Hugh Masekela had a big rise to fame in the 60s – Herb, for his Tijuana Brass albums on A&M – and Hugh, for the way that he brought South African jazz currents to the American soul mainstream! Given that both had strong presence on the Cali scene in their time, the pairing here is a great one – and works well with some larger jazz backings that color things out in a mix of soul, fusion, funk, and some slight South African touches. Other players on the set include Lee Ritenour and Arthur Adams on guitars, Paulinho Da Costa on percussion, James Gadson on bass, and Hotep Cecil Bernard on piano – and titles include "Skokiaan", "Moonza", "Lobo", "African Summer", "Ring Bell", and "Happy Hanna".

PS Artbooks (UK), 1952/1953. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The continuing genius of Planet Comics – one of the first-ever comics devoted entirely to science fiction stories – still going strong here in the early 50s! Unlike some of its contemporaries during the stretch, Planet never got too creepy or too exploitative – but did use the growing comic market to really hone its craft, and perfect the kind of longer-form stories with recurring characters that made the magazine a real hit with audiences young and old. Female characters are as strong as the guys – and the art throughout is wonderful – with top-shelf pencils from artists who include Murphy Anderson, Lee Elias, Charles Sultan, Lily Renee, Arthur Peddy, Bill Benulis, Rudy Palais, and other unsung talents. The 280 page book is heavy, hardcover, and really well done – featuring seven full issues, all in color, with cover images and inside ads too. Book

It's propelled by some very tasty drums, and has a strong party groove that really pushes his vocals! "Put Our Love" is a great number too – in a sweeter Otis Redding kind of mode. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Dragon (Sweden), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Although known best for his seminal work as a leader – over a range of key recordings from the 50s and 60s – Swedish reedman Lars Gullin also lent his talents to many other artists as an important sideman, as you'll hear in this much-needed look at an overlooked side of his work! Like other releases in this series, there's a huge amount of material here – over 25 tracks, running for nearly 80 minutes – featuring Gullin performances from 1949 through 1952 – lending his talents on baritone sax (and sometimes as arranger) to jazz musicians who include James Moody, Zoot Sims, Arthur Osterwalls, Stan Getz, and Putte Wickman – plus performances in all-star groups who include Leonard Feather's Swinging Swedes, Svensk Jazz 50, and Jazzkritikerorkestern 1951 – and even a few cuts with singers who include Alice Babs, Brita Borg, and Charles Judah. The collection is as comprehensive as you might guess – and titles include "Swedish Pastry", "The Man I Love", "Moody's Bounce", "Flamingo", "Two Fathers", "Who Sleeps", "The Girl With The Net", "Moon Over Miami", "Dancing In The Dark", "First Walk", and "Be Bop Knopp".

Was this the one that coined the phrase "shipped gold, returned platinum?" We can't remember, but whatever the case, it's one of those sets that used to be ubiquitous, but which now we can hardly ever find in good shape! Includes shorter mixes of "Love To Love You Baby" and "I Feel Love" – plus the hits for the album "On The Radio" and "Enough Is Enough".

BBC/SSJ (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... $22.99
A fantastic lost slice of work from guitarist Wes Montgomery – rare British broadcasting recordings done in the year of 1965 – during a European tour that gave us some other material by Wes over the years! This collection features the guitar genius in two different performances – one in March of 1965, with an American group that features Harold Mabern on piano, Arthur Harper on bass, and Jimmy Lovelace on drums – the second from two months later, with a British backing combo that includes the great Stan Tracey on piano, plus Rick Laird on bass and Jackie Dougan on drums. The Mabern material is great – with a familiar feel to other live tour tracks from that stretch – and the Tracey sides maybe have a surprising sort of edge, and even some of the chromes that would show up more during the late Verve and CTI years. Titles include "Full House", "Four On Six", "Twisted Blues", "Here's That Rainy Day", "Yesterdays", and "Jingles". CD

Baystate (Japan), 1977. Used ... $44.99
One of the hippest, tightest sessions ever recorded by drummer Sunny Murray – a large group set recorded with his Untouchable Factor group – a great ensemble that includes Frank Foster on soprano sax, Oliver Lake and Arthur Blythe on alto saxes, Hamiet Bluiett on baritone, Don Pullen on piano, and Cecil McBee and Fred Hopkins on bass! The sound is somewhat straighter than Murray's free jazz of a few years before – almost in the mode that Foster was exploring with some of his large ensembles of the 70s – a platform for righteous jazz expression, but in a way that's still tied together strongly with a sense of rhythm. Other players on the group include the enigmatic Youseff Yancy on a host of instruments, including theremin – plus the under-recorded Monette Sudler on guitar. Some tracks are a bit more outside than others – and titles include "Past Perfect Tense", "One Down & One Up", "Applebluff", "Apple Cores", and "New York Maze". CD

Early work from Jimmy Helms – an American soul singer, but one who recorded more famously later on in the UK – heard here on his full length debut! The set was put together at a time when Jimmy was getting some exposure on the Merv Griffin Show (the cover shot is from one appearance) – and the style here is kind of a hip blend of jazz and soul, wrapped around a nice mix of familiar tunes and even better unusual ones! Helms later had fame on the stage, and he's definitely got an expressive style of singing – a mature mode that's different than crossover soul singers of the time, and which has echoes of hip cats like Walter Jackson and Arthur Prysock in both his phrasing, and some of the arrangements he gets on the tunes. Titles include "I Was A Boy When You Needed A Man", "Like A Young Bird", "Listen", "Iliane", "Air Of Confusion", "Until It's Time For You To Go", "Light My Fire", and "Hey Jude". CD
