Banana SplitsDoin The Banana Split/I Enjoy Being A Boy/The Beautiful Calliopa/Let Me Remember You Smiling ... 7-inch
Kellogg, Late 60s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $6.99
What a cool little single! This 4 track ep is presented by Kelloggs, the cereal company, as a tie-in with the Banana Splits TV show. It's got some really great numbers that range in style from trippy to groovy, and maybe a little bit funky. The track "Doin The Banana Split" was purportedly written by Barry White adn features a slightly funky groove, and a hip male soul vocal and heavy instrumentation. We simply cannot believe kid show music was at one point this crazy and incredible! Other cuts have a groovy sunshine pop feel – a bit off-beat, kind of trippy, and almost somewhere near Millenium or Love Generation. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Art BlakeyGolden Boy ... CD
EMI/Warner (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $14.99
An obscure Jazz Messengers session – but a great one! The album is ostensibly a set of jazz versions of tunes from the musical Golden Boy, and the group this time is a larger one than usual – a total of 10 players, led by Blakey – and playing beautifully over arrangements from Wayne Shorter, Curtis Fuller, and Cedar Walton! The style's not any sort of clunky "jazz meets Broadway" mode, though – as the care taken by the artists involved help elevate the tunes, and the performance, to a whole new soulful level – hardly what you'd expect! The group features trumpet work from Lee Morgan and Freddie Hubbard, tenor from Wayne Shorter, alto from James Spaulding, trombone from Curtis Fuller, baritone from Charles Davis, piano from Cedar Walton, and bass from Reggie Workman – all very hip cats, working here with the same sort of large group textures you might hear on Freddie Hubbard's Body & Soul album from the same time, mixed with some more traditionally Blakey-led moments. Titles include "Yes I Can", "Theme From Golden Boy", "Lorna's Here", "This is The Life", and "There's A Party". CD

Larry CoryellBarefoot Boy ... CD
Flying Dutchman/BGP (UK), 1972. New Copy ... $11.99
One of Larry Coryell's greatest albums ever! Barefoot Boy is a much more expansive session than some of Coryell's others, fueled in part by the spiritual intensity of the Impulse Records generation. It's got a momentum that's pretty darn exciting throughout – but the compositions are nice and long, which gives the players plenty of space to explore. Personnel includes Steve Marcus on tenor and soprano sax, Mike Mandel on piano, Roy Haynes on drums, and Larry Killian on congas – working with Coryell on long trippy tracks that remind us a bit of 60s work by Chico Hamilton, Charles Lloyd, and Gabor Szabo. Titles include "Call To The Higher Consciousness", "The Great Escape", and "Gypsy Queen". CD

Fela & Egypt 80Army Arrangement/Government Chicken Boy ... CD
Celluloid/Barclay, 1985. Used ... $5.99
A richly expanded version of this key Fela album from the 80s – one that adds in a full extra bonus album's worth of material! The CD contains the full 30 minute version of "Army Arrangement", a great mid 80s tune that was one of Fela's strongest political tracks – an extended attack on the military-based "democracy" that led Nigeria during the 70s. Added to the track is the full version of "Government Chicken Boy", another 30 minute long number, one that attacks the complacent political establishment – to the tune of eerie keyboards and funky Afro rhythms!

Handsome Boy Modeling SchoolWhite People ... CD
Atlantic, 2004. Used ... $3.99
Just when you thought Prince Paul and Cat Power would never make a record together PRESTO – it's the new Handsome Boy album! HBMS takes a bit more of a chillout tack with this long overdue second opus – with lots of laidback beats and samples, and a surprising amount of live instrumentation! The gleeful, sarcastic comedy of the stellar first album remains intact, with some genuinely amusing skits (including one with Jay Z appearing under the pseudonym Hines Buchanan), and the deep range of guest vocalists isn't as surprising as how strong their work is in the best tunes. It would have been pretty easy for Prince Paul and Automator to find a bunch of interesting names to flesh out their big pop culture frappe, but something else altogether to make trippy hip hop tracks featuring Cat Power and the Hieroglyphics make sense on the same record. A pretty solid set from the most adventurous pseudo duo in the game! Guests include Del The Funky Homosapien, De La Soul, RZA, Lord Finesse, AG, Rahzel, Jazzy Jay, Qbert, Mike Patton, Casual, Hieroglyphics, Grand Wizard Theodore, El-P, John Oates, Pharrell, Kid Koala, and George W. Bush (just kidding). Tracks include "If It Wasn't For You" with De La, "Are You Down With It" with Mike Patton, "The World's Gone Mad" with Del and others, "It's Like That" with Casual, "I've Been Thinking" with Cat Power, "Rock And Roll (Could Never Hip Hop Like This) Pt 2" featuring Lord Finesse, Qbert and others, First. . .And Then" featuring Dres from Black Ship, "A Day In The Life" featuring RZA, AZ and others and more, plus intro/outro by Father Guido Sarducci.

Etta Jones/Lorez AlexandriaNature Boy (2 versions) ... 7-inch
Popcorn (UK), Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A classic tune, done here in two very groovy versions! Etta Jones' take on "Nature Boy" starts out with a soulful tenor solo, then moves into this exotic stepping rhythm on guitar, bass, and drums – very spare, but very compelling – especially as Etta holds the lead! Lorez Alexandria is equally exotic on her version, but jazzier too – as the tune has this wonderful piano that really opens up the colors and tones! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Rod McKuenBoy Named Charlie Brown ... CD
Columbia/Rambling (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $22.99
A surprisingly weird and wonderful little record – one that features Rod McKuen's music for the film A Boy Named Charlie Brown, plus a few other tracks as well – all done in that slightly-broken style of Rod's we love so much! The aging poet McKuen might have seemed a strange choice to use for any sort of Peanuts film, but his raspy take on the title tune is really wonderful – almost a version of Charlie Brown that's an older alcoholic who's smoked most of his life – but still trying to sound slightly upbeat! This approach also follows on some of Rod's vocal work on a few tunes for the film Natalie with Henry Mancini – and even his instrumental work here is nice, with kind of a blue-tinged take on the territory of Vince Guaraldi. Titles include vocal numbers "Failure Face", "We", "Champion Charlie Brown", "A Boy Named Charlie Brown", and "Natalie" – plus instrumental tracks "Something For Snoopy", "I'll Catch The Sun", "Jean", and "Joanna" – as well as instrumentals of a few Charlie Brown tracks too.

Matsuo OhnoAstro Boy – Roots Of Electronic Sound ... CD
JVC (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $26.99
A very weird and wild little record from Matsuo Ohno – the man who created all those cool electronic effects for the early Astro Boy cartoons! The album's comprised of sounds from those years, but really comes across more as some sort of odd, experimental collage – with short electronic passages, sound effects, and other odd snippets all coming together in really weird and beautiful ways – almost more like some Fluxus sound collage than any sort of animated soundtrack you might expect! The record does begin with the cute vocal "Astro Boy Theme", but then moves into a sublime array of dark, moody analogue electronic sounds and effects. CD

Boogie Down ProductionsCriminal Minded (2LP edition with bonus track) ... LP
B-Boy/Traffic, 1986. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $18.99 20.98
One of the best debuts in the history of hip hop – and one of the most important albums the genre ever produced! Criminal Minded is landmark for a number of reasons. Among the biggest is, of course, that it was recorded with the late great DJ Scott La Rock – and he was soon to fall prey to the very street violence that BDP documented with such raw brilliance, courtesy the lyricism and delivery of KRS-One. Importance aside, though, Criminal Minded is simply a great, timeless record that no true fan of gritty classic hip hop should be without. The track list alone is a full chapter in the hip hop book of legends – with tunes like "Poetry", "Elementary", "South Bronx", "Super-Hoe", "Bridge is Over", and the "P is Free" remix. Also includes "Criminal Minded", "Dope Beat", and "9mm Goes Bang". LP, Vinyl record album

Tommy Boy, 1985. Very Good+ (reissue)... $24.99
Faithful reissue of the classic cut and paste single that sparked off an entire sub genre of hip hop in the early 80s! Double Dee & Steinski mix together dozens of samples of everything from JFK speeches and cartoon bits to movie dialog and even Mae West over a bed of classic break beats and early hip hop tracks. The Payoff mix is based on Whiz Kid's "Play That Beat", Lesson Two uses lots of James Brown, Lesson Three has everything else. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Force MDsLove Letters ... LP
Tommy Boy, 1984. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Sweet electro soul from Force MDs – an early album for Tommy Boy that helped set the scene for a countless imitations to come! The record features a unique blend of older harmony soul (clearly referenced by the old school sweaters on the cover) and (then) current electro production – in a mode that supports the vocals with instrumentation from the Tackhead trio of Keith LeBlanc on drums, Doug Wimbush on bass, and Skip McDonald on guitar! Keyboards slide in and out of most tracks as well – and the tunes themselves shift from hook-heavy pop numbers to some gentler ballads that are often some of the best tunes in the set! Steinski makes a guest appearance on the classic "Itchin For A Scratch", and other tracks include "Tears", "Let's Stay Together", "Be Mine", "Don't Make Me Dance", and "Forgive Me Girl".

Janelle MonaeElectric Lady (with download) ... LP
Bad Boy/Atlantic, 2013. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $20.99 22.98
The electric lady is back again – getting great help on this set from Prince, Erykah Badu, Miguel, and Esperanza Spaulding! The set features further chapters in Janelle's Metropolis story – but apart from that overarching structure, and cool notes that situate the singer as some future cultural criminal, the overall vibe is tight funky soul – at a level that not only lives up to all of Monae's sparkling promise from before, but which also finds a great way to bring out the best elements of all the guests! There's plenty of funky numbers here that stand wonderfully well on their own, but the whole thing works even better as a unified set – with titles that include "Primetime", "Givin Em What They Love", "Queen", "Electric Lady", "Look Into My Eyes", "It's Code", "Ghetto Woman", "Victory", "Dorothy Dandrige Eyes", and "What An Experience".

AkikoCollage ... CD
Verve (Japan), Early 2000s. New Copy ... $16.99
A great little collection of work from Japanese jazz singer Akiko – pulled from her first few Verve albums, and packaged into one really beautiful set! Unlike other contemporaries on the Japanese scene, who tend to be a bit more soul-based, Akiko goes for a style that's often more classically jazz-based – a mode the echoes back to sounds of the 50s and 60s, yet which is also served up with hipper production and instrumental touches from younger collaborators – especially Sunaga T, who had a hand in some of the best numbers here! The package is almost as beautiful as the music – done in an old Limelight Records style with a booklet in the middle that includes photos of all the album covers. Titles include "Funky Monkey Boy (English version)", "Good Morning Heartache", "Skindo Le Le", "You've Changed (funk version)", "Fly Me To The Moon", "Do You Know", "Far Beyond", "So Tired", and a few cool interludes and intros!
