✨✧ Atomic RoosterSleeping For Years – The Studio Recordings 1970 to 1974 (4CD set) ... CD
Esoteric (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 4CD ... Out Of Stock
The full story of Atomic Rooster – a group who were quite an important force in their day, but who've become a bit overlooked in more recent years! The group originally grew out of the Crazy World Of Arthur Brown, and featured drummer Carl Palmer in his pre-ELP years – and keyboardist Vincent Crane, who'd be the real lasting force in the group – and brought an especially strong style on organ that was a nice link between earlier bluesier rock and the start of prog – but at a level that was also pretty hard rock-driven too! That latter aspect took off even more strongly as the group lost Palmer and started to really find their sound – and eventually, they picked up the great Chris Farlowe on vocals, whose singing really pushed the style on their last few records! This box features five full studio albums – Atomic Rooster, Death Walks Behind You, In Hearing Of Atomic Rooster, Made In England, and Nice N Greasy – plus bonus tracks from singles, and other cuts that appeared on different international pressings of the records! 55 tracks in all – and very detailed notes on the group!

✨✧ VariousZanzibara 3 – Ujamaa Le Son Des Annees 60 En Tanzanie ... CD
Buda (France), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Zanzibar dance grooves from the nation-building Ujamaa years of the late 60s – all done in a style that's somewhat different and a bit more laidback than work from neighboring scenes at the time! Most of the numbers here build up a base with percussion, bass, and a handful of guitars – all rumbling together in a gently earthy sort of way – never too harsh or too sharp, and often with the guitars ringing alongside each other nicely, as one player steps out with an occasionally more pronounced line. Lyrics also show a strong sense of teamwork – mostly sung by the group together at once, creating more melodic force on top of the rhythms on the bottom. As always with this series, the CD comes with a great set of notes that includes a history of the scene and the artists – and the package features 17 tracks that include "Nipeleke Kwa Baba", "Dada Nihurumie", "Maneno Niliyokwambia", and "Mpenzi Nakukanya" by Nuta jazz Band; "Kaka Umenishinda", "Mpenzi Ya Kijinga", and "Salamu Zako Nimezipata" by Atomic Jazz Band; "Likembe Ya Moro" and "Nimechoka" by Morogoro Jazz Band; and "Usiwaamini Shemeji" and "Shangazi Naomba Taiti" by Jamhuri Jazz Band.

Louvin BrothersFirst Steps – The Early Recordings ... CD
Rural Routes, Early 50s. New Copy ... $11.99 15.98
Sublime sounds from the legendary Louvin Brothers – heard here on a collection of tracks recorded before their more famous years at Capitol Records – for labels that include Decca, Apollo, and MGM! Yet even at this early point, the brothers are fantastic – graced with a harmony sound that was both rooted in the hills, and which would become a huge influence on rock and folk generations to come – often just backed by simple guitar and mandolin backings, which usually don't offer the pyrotechnics of contemporaries like Bill Monroe – lest they get in the way of the vocals – yet still have a way of ringing out with a fantastic sort of depth. Titles include "Weapon Of Prayer", "Alabama", "Seven Year Blues", "The Get Acquainted Waltz", "You'll Be Rewarded Over There", "Robe Of White", "The Sons & Daughters Of God", "Childish Love", and "The Great Atomic Power".

Charles MingusOh Yeah ... CD
Atlantic, 1962. Used ... $3.99
Quite a crazy little record from Charles Mingus! Mingus plays piano and sings (yes, you read that right!) in a tight sextet with Booker Ervin and Roland Kirk on reeds, and Jimmy Knepper on trombone. Mingus is trying out a kind of messed-up, blues-inspired sound here – but for some reason the tracks sort of fall short of their potential, perhaps because they're not infused with the same clarity and anger as his earlier works, or perhaps because Mingus' work on the piano just isn't as fierce as his bass playing. Still, the album's a nice one, and way better than the other Mingus piano album, on Impulse. Titles include "Oh Lord, Don't Let Them Drop That Atomic Bomb On Me", "Wham Bam Thank You Ma'am", "Devil Woman", and "Passions Of A Man". Plus the CD includes a previously unreleased interview with Charles Mingus. CD

Kiyoshi TanakaBritish Rock Live In Japan (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Teichiku/Think (Japan), 1972. Used Gatefold ... $14.99
Don't think "British rock", think "electric jazz" – as the set features some long, jamming instrumental workouts that are more in a heavy fusion mode overall! The group's a quintet – led by drummer Kiyoshi Tanaka, and featuring organ, guitar, bass, and some very cool electronics too – used in ways that touch up the tunes nicely, and bring out some spacey currents in the music, especially during some of the few mellow moments! These guys are definitely influenced by the more progressive rock sounds of the period, but never feel the temptation to vocalize at all – and titles include "Echoes", "Jimi Hendrix Mad Song", and the long "Trip To West Coast From Britain" – with segments dedicated to Deep Purple, Atomic Rooster, Frank Zappa, Uriah Heep, and the Grateful Dead.
