AtomicSix Easy Pieces ... CD
Odin (Norway), 2018. New Copy ... $16.99
Fantastic work from this avant jazz supergroup – their first album away from the Jazzland label, and a set that maybe seems to show a whole new direction for the quintet! Some of the music here has a stronger set of arrangement at the core – balanced between the completely incredible individual strengths of the members – a bit, maybe, like the way that Charles Mingus could strike that rare balance in his prime – even if there's nothing Mingus-like about this music at all! The interwoven spirits of the players is completely sublime – as much a lead feature as the breakout solos – which include work by Fredrik Ljungkvist on tenor and clarinet, Magnus Broo on trumpet, Havard Wilk on piano, Ingebrigt Haker Flaten on bass, and Hans Hulboekmo on drums. Titles include "Stuck In Stockholm", "Falt Strid", "Be Wafted", "Sinusoidal Arches", and "Ten Years". CD

✨✧ Atomic ForestObsession ... CD
Now Again, Mid 70s. Used ... $8.99
The collected work of a mighty trippy group from the Indian scene – a psychedelic combo who worked in the 70s, but who had the same sort of edge you'd hear from the American and British scenes of the late 60s! In truth, there's a fair bit of Anglo influence going on in the music – not just in the English language lyrics, but also in the way the guitars come together with stretched-out, soaring brilliance – flying eight miles high to the sky in a heady brew of freak and fuzz – and turning this approach to some surprising soundtrack numbers too! Production is perfect for the band's vibe – often spacing things out in a really cool way – with some slightly primitive modes that also remind us of the South American psych scene of a few years before. Now Again did a brilliant job with the package – bringing together a host of the group's best tracks from the mid 70s, and a bonus 20 page booklet with full notes on the group, and some very cool photos and ephemera. The whole thing even features a few unreleased numbers – and titles include "Obsession 77", "Sunshine Day", "Butterfly Version 1", "Theme From The Godfather", "Theme From The Fox", "Windmills Of Your Mind", "Booboo Lullaby", "Man You're Not Number One", "Travel On", "Gesthemene", and "Foxy Lady".

Atomic RoosterSleeping For Years – The Studio Recordings 1970 to 1974 (4CD set) ... CD
Esoteric (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 4CD ... $32.99
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!

✨✧ Atomic/School DaysDistil (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Okka Disk, 2008. Used 2CD Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
An explosive meeting between Atomic and Ken Vandermark's School Days combo – proof that the Chicago/Scandinavia connection is stronger than ever! The double-length performance was recorded at Chicago's Green Mill nightclub, and it features an impressive lineup with Ken Vandermark on baritone sax and bass clarinet, Havard Wiik on piano, Jeb Bishop on trombone, Magnus Broo on trumpet, Ingebrigt Haker Flaten on bass, Fredrik Ljungkvist on tenor, Kjell Nordeson on vibes, and Paal Nilssen-Love – all working on very long, open tracks that almost have the feel of some of the best improvising orchestra work from years back. The vibes add a nicely chromatic quality to the work amidst some of the fiercer horn passages – and titles include "Deadline", "Irrational Ceremony", "Visitors", "Andersonville", "Dark Easter", "Fort Funston", "Bunuel At The Cocktail Party", and "Closing Stages".

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".

✨✧ Meshell NdegeocelloVentriloquism ... CD
Naive (France), 2018. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
A fantastic project from the legendary Meshell Ndegeocello – one that has her taking on the tunes of others, hence the title of the album – but completely transforming them with her own unique approach to bass and vocals! Most of the numbers won't be recognized at the start, as the Ndegeocello approach feels as if she wrote all of the work herself – but as the set goes on, you'll definitely catch elements of the tunes – yet love them even more in the way they come alive as vehicles for new expression! Meshell sings and plays bass with a core group that includes great guitars from Chris Bruce, heavy drums from Abraham Rounds, and keyboards from Jebin Bruni – and guests on the album include Jeff Parker on guitar and Kat Khaleel on additional vocals. Titles include "Private Dancer", "Smooth Operator", "I Wonder If I Take You Home", "Nite & Day", "Sensitivity", "Atomic Dog 2017", "Sometimes It Snows In April", and "Don't Disturb This Groove". CD

EMI/Capitol, Early 80s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A selection of tracks pulled from Clinton's early 80s records for Capitol – post Parliament/Funkadelic offerings that were actually surprisingly successful at the time, and which have a Zapp-like approach to funk that's kept them bubbling with the old school crowd. Titles include "Atomic Dog", "R&B Skeletons In The Closet", "Do Fries Go With That Shake", "Hey Good Lookin", "Nubian Nut", and "Double Oh Oh". CD

✨✧ Alice ColtraneMonastic Trio ... CD
Impulse, 1968. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Early work by Alice Coltrane – somewhat under the shadow of her late husband, as you'd guess from the use of his name on the front cover – but really stepping out here with a voice of her own! The Monastic Trio of the set features Alice on harp and piano – alongside bass from Jimmy Garrison and drums by either Ben Riley or Rashied Ali – both really fluid players who open up nicely in this way that's never to far out, at least in the way that John Coltrane was using rhythms at the time – but which allow Alice to really take the lead as a bold musical visionary of her own! Perhaps most exciting, Pharoah Sanders sits in on one of the album's longest tracks – blowing tenor with a force that's enough to bring back The Great One – but the real charm of the set is Alice's piano work, bubbling out here with a sensitivity that we never would have expected from the harder-edge sessions cut with Coltrane – that new level of spirituality she instantly brought to her own solo sessions. Titles include "Ohnedaruth", "Lovely Sky Boat", and "Atomic Peace". CD

✨✧ VariousOn With The Jive – 1950s R&B From Dolphin's Of Hollywood Vol 1 ... CD
Hollywood/Ace (UK), Mid 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Great work from one of the hippest record stores of all time – the legendary Dolphin's of Hollywood, home to some of the best R&B on the west coast scene in the 50s! The work here was all originally produced by John Dolphin for his Recorded In Hollywood label – a small imprint run out of the shop, but one that featured R&B and jazz that was every bit as great as that coming from bigger labels at the time. The titles here are all rare alternates and odd takes – compiled by Billy Vera, who first unearthed the stash of John Dolphin's tapes for Specialty Records at the end of the 80s. Vera's track selection here nicely complements other previously-released versions of Dolphin material – in that it includes some great oddities, and also even includes some great notes on the store and the scene at the time. CD features 25 tracks – all previously unissued – with titles that include "Dolphin's Theme" and "Rock Bottom" by Red Callender, "Hang Your Tears Out To Dry" and "My Love Comes Tumbling Down" by Jesse Belvin, "Pee Wee's Blues" and "Crying & Walking" by Pee Wee Crayton, "Easy Money" and "Papa" by Scatman Crothers, "Three Men In My Life" and "Tall Tan Baby" by Maggie Jacquet, "Cadillac Baby" by Little Caesar, "Baby Doll" by Marvin Phillips, "Atomic Baby" by Linda Hayes, and "The Blues Has Got Me" by an Unknown Vocalist – and even a "Dolphin's Radio Jingle" by Dick Huggy Boy Hugg!
