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

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 (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Celluloid/Knitting Factory, 1985. Used ... $8.99
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!

Quincy JonesQuincy Jones Plays Hip Hits/Golden Boy ... CD
Mercury, 1963/1964. New Copy ... $8.99 18.98
Classic Quincy Jones from the 60s – a pair of records that really show why his jazz skills were unlike anyone else! Quincy Jones Plays Hip Hits is a very groovy record that was done with a feel that's somewhere in between his Big Band Bossa album and his best 60s soundtrack work! The format is simple – Quincy picks a sweet batch of jazz semi-hits from the early 60s, plays them with a nice mix of soul jazz arrangements, and works with a great ensemble filled with wonderful players – including Roland Kirk, Budd Johnson, Seldon Powell, James Moody, and Jerome Richardson on reeds; Lalo Schifrin and Patti Brown on piano, Jim Hall on guitar, Clark Terry on trumpet, and Melba Liston on trombone – plus lots of great percussion at the bottom, helping bring some Latin energy to the grooves at points. Tunes are familiar, but all given a great Quincy Jones twist – and titles include "Gravy Waltz", "Jive Samba", "Walk On The Wild Side", "Bossa Nova USA", and "Watermelon Man". Golden Boy is a sweet bridge between Quincy's big band recordings and his groovier soundtrack work of the mid 60s – as the record combines straight jazzy grooving with some of the cooler elements of Quincy's soundtrack scores, like stepping strings, wordless voices, and a breathy mellow groove that floats across the disc in a wonderful way! Aiding Quincy in the album are a host of top-line jazz players – including Eddie Lockjaw Davis, Jerome Richardson, and Phil Woods on saxes – plus Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Al Grey on trombone, and Jim Hall on guitar! Although titled after the show Golden Boy, only a few cuts here are from that musical – and the rest include Quincy Jones originals and some cool covers, given the Q twist. Titles include "Seaweed", "The Witching Hour", "Hard Day's Night", "The Sidewinder", and "Theme From Golden Boy", done in 2 versions, both great! CD

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

De La Soul3 Feet High & Rising (2LP pressing) ... LP
Tommy Boy, 1989. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
The mindblowing classic debut of De La Soul! 3 Feet High And Rising is inarguably one of the most important records in hip hop history – with playful, endearingly oddball trio rhymes and Prince Paul production at it's most sprawlingly sampled and creative. It's got flat out classic songs that stand out well enough on their own, but it's also one of the greatest full length albums in hip hop history – featuring loosely connective skits with recurring characters that are vital to the experience. Last, but not least, 3 Feet. . .is especially fascinating given it's 1989 release year – a time when so many of the contemporaneous crews and solo MCs on both the east coast and west coast were going grittier, darker and more profane – but it doesn't feel like a conscious reaction to that, as much it feels like sharp trio and a brilliant producer carving out their own damn creative niche. Includes "Me, Myself & I", "The Magic Number", "Plug Tunin", "Say No Go", "Tread Water", "Eye Know", "Buddy" and much more! Double vinyl reissue – making it sound a heck of a lot better than the overly-compressed original vinyl, which could never handle all the music on the album! LP, Vinyl record album

Notorious BIGReady To Die (original version) ... CD
Bad Boy, 1995. Used ... $4.99
Biggie's masterpiece! There's very little we could possibly say about this east coast landmark that isn't already etched in stone in the annals of hip hop history. Biggie's a master storyteller, whether he's spinning tales of violent street nihilism, his skills beneath the sheets, or blistering sadness and regret. This thing sounds as great in the new millenium as it did at the end of the previous one. All the classics: "Things Have Changed", "Gimme The Loot", "Machine Gun Funk", "Ready To Die", "Warning", "The What" featuring Method Man, "Ready To Die", "Juicy", "Big Poppa", "Respect", "Friend Of Mine", and the Premier-produced "Unbelievable". This is the original version of the CD with the baby on the cover and 17 tracks in all. CD

✨✧ Boogie Down ProductionsCriminal Minded (2LP edition with bonus track) ... LP
B-Boy/Traffic, 1986. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

Bad Boy/Atlantic, 2013. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

Once again, Cannon proves that it's not the song, it's the singer! This set of tunes from the hit musical Fiddler On The Roof should be schmaltzy – but thanks to the quality of the group (a great sextet with Nat Adderley, Charles Lloyd, Joe Zawinul, Sam Jones, and Louis Hayes), and thanks to some hip production from David Axelrod, the album really sparkles! The tones of Cannon and Lloyd are great together – and the make the best songs sound like strange Eastern-tinged jazz numbers. Tunes include "To Life", "Fiddler On The Roof", "Cajvalach", "Sewing Machine", "Matchmaker", and "Now I Have Everything". CD features 4 bonus tracks too – "Little Boy With The Sad Eyes", "Goodbye Charlie", "Island Blues", and "Sweet Georgia Bright". CD

AkikoCollage ... CD
Verve (Japan), Early 2000s. New Copy ... $24.99
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!

AntenaCamino Del Sol ... LP
Numero, Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $21.99 22.99
Bebel Gilberto eat your heart out – Antena explored the same electric-bossa territory you did, nearly 20 years before your first big record! The group were a short-lived French outfit who were one of the shining jewels in the crown of the lovely label Les Disques Du Crepuscule during the early 80s – and were a real breath of fresh air in the post-punk years with their light and jazzy approach to the groove. As you'll hear in this set, Antena's style borrows a lot from the bossa, but also throws in some wonderful poppish touches – including jangly guitars recorded in a similar mode to some of the other French/European indie groups of the time, and a slight darkness in production that almost gives a Martin Hannett-like undercurrent to the whole set. The group's album Camino Del Sol has been lovingly reissued with a great set of notes, as well as a series of bonus tracks from an additional ep – making for a beautiful 14 track package that will really help you rediscover this nearly-lost group! Titles include "Sissexa", "To Climb The Cliff", "Camino Del Sol", "Bye Bye Papaye", "Noelle A Hawaii", "The Boy From Ipanema", "Seaside Weekend", "Frantz", and "Ingenuous". LP, Vinyl record album

Aquarian DreamFantasy/Chance To Dance ... CD
Elektra/Expansion (UK), 1977/1978. New Copy ... $16.99
A pair of great albums from this Norman Connors side project! Fantasy is righteous soul, but with a wicked groove too – a killer set from Aquarian Dream, made even better by some great Norman Connors production! In a way, Aquarian Dream were to Norman Connors what Ramp were to Roy Ayers – in that the group wasn't really that dominated by Connors, but they did benefit a lot from his groundbreaking work in the jazz funk field – getting a level of sophistication in their sound that's really wonderful – and mixed with almost equal parts soul, funk, and jazz in the instrumentation! Vocals are often in a harmony mode – again in the manner of Ramp – and there's a classy yet cosmic sound to the record that we totally love. (And there's also one more Roy Ayers-like connection in the vocal department – since the group features Sylvia Striplin, who later recorded for Roy's Uno Melodic label!) The album's got a number of nice groovers with a strongly off-beat sound – and titles include "Friends", "It Ain't Whatcha Say", "You're A Star", "Play It For Me", and "Gentle Thoughts". On Chance To Dance, Aquarian Dream step out on their own – working for the first time without Norman Connors at the helm, but in a groove that's still plenty nice! The clubby aspects of the group's sound are played up by arranger/producer Jeff Lane – who'd worked often with BT Express and Brass Construction, and finds a similar groove here with Aquarian Dream – one in which all the best elements are focused strongly on the rhythms! A few mellower moments round things out nicely with a jazzy vibe – and titles include "Disco Juice", "Gettum Up And Dance", "Big Boy", "Why Can't We Do It Like We Used To", "Dirty Trick", and "Love Slave".

✨✧ Ginny ArnellMeet Ginny Arnell (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
MGM/Poker (UK), 1964. New Copy ... $5.99 13.99
Dreamy 60s pop from Ginny Arnell – a sweet-voiced singer working in a very echoey space! There's a nicely weepy quality to Ginny's music – not in a way that's overly emotive, but which comes from the odd mix of guitar lines, bubbling bass, and heavy echo used to record the music – all with qualities that start feeling sad long before Arnell even sings a word of the lyrics – and which is almost a female equivalent to the best blue modes of Bobby Vinton's work of the same time! Arrangements are by a variety of talents – including Bill McElhieny, Al Gorgoni, and Ray Stevens – but there's a nicely unified feel to the set, thanks to the strong production on the album from Jim Vienneau – clearly an under-acknowledged genius of 60s pop. Titles include "Dumbhead", "I Wish I Knew What Dress To Wear", "I'm So Afraid Of Loving You", "He's My Little Devil", "This Is Mine", "You Pulled A Fast One", "I Don't Want You This Way", and "This Is Mine". CD features 6 bonus tracks too – including "I'm Getting Mad", "Bill Why", "I'm Crying Too", "Trouble's Back In Town", and "Just Like A Boy". CD
