Eddie Davis/Charlie VenturaEddie Davis & Charlie Ventura In Stereo (aka Battle Of Saxes) ... LP
King, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $24.99
Tremendous tenor work from both parties involved – but especially from Eddie Davis, who always sounds wonderful on his early sides for King! Davis has a clear, clean tone that's totally great – and given the short space of these tunes, he really gets a lot done with a little – in a tight way that's somewhat different than his later sides for Prestige. Backing on the Davis sides includes some organ – probably by Shirley Scott – and titles include "Mean To Me", "All Of You", "Out Of Nowhere", "All God's Chillun Got Rhythm", and "If I Were A Bell". Charlie Ventura's great too – a bit more modern, almost, than on some of his better-known sides – and playing with a mean, lean, boppish tone. Ventura titles include "Liza", "Give Me The Simple Life", "If I Had You", and "I Can't Give You Anything But Love". LP, Vinyl record album
(Nice and clean overall. Top cover seam is split.)

Hakon KornstadTenor Battle ... CD
Jazzland (Norway), 2016. New Copy ... $10.99
The title's a bit misleading – as the record's hardly the sort of tenor battle you might have heard from Wardell Gray and Dexter Gordon back in the day – and instead, the title's a bit of a pun, in that Hakon Kornstad plays both tenor sax, and sings in a tenor voice too! The record opens up in this really magical flow that begins with the saxophone sound of Hakon Kornstad, and blends in sublime sounds on instruments that include harmonium, cimbalon, harpsichord, and percussion – plus some excellent work from bassist Per Zanussi, who really grounds the whole thing. The record's easily one of the most compelling we've heard from Kornstad so far – that's saying a lot, given the strength of his other albums – and Hakon's got this new level of sensitivity that really comes through in the way he approaches his sound – not just his core performance on tenor, but also his use of a bit of flute, and process of looping live with the instrumentation too. Many of the compositions are from operatic sources – part of Kornstad's growing fascination with the format – and Hakon also sings a bit, in this stunning tenor voice that's really wonderful – completely captivating, especially amongst this instrumentation – and never forced or hokey at all. We'd hardly believe that such blend could come off so well – but it does, and with uniquely beautiful results – on titles that include "Je Crois Entendre Encore", "Song Of India", "En Fermant Les Yeux", "Morgen", and "Marechiare".

Ennio Morricone & Gillo PontecorvoLa Battagli Di Algeri (aka Battle Of Algiers) ... CD
United Artists/Quartet (Spain), 1967. New Copy ... $14.99
A relatively dramatic score from Ennio Morricone– as you might guess from the military title! Some of the tunes here have a very strong military feel, but others move into surprisingly sweeter territory – that more mainstream side of Morricone's sound, but still pretty great – with full strings swelling up in lush sounds that are very compelling. There's also some subtly spooky sounds on a few of the numbers – the odd instrumental moments that Morricone could sneak in nicely on a score like this – conducted perfectly by orchestra director Bruno Nicolai. Titles include "Theme Of Ali", "Tortures", "Clandestine Marriage", "Battle Of Algiers March", "Sorrow In The Casbah", and "Algiers November 1 1954". CD

✨✧ VariousBattle Of Hastings Street – Raw Detroit Blues & R&B From Joe's Record Shop 1949 to 1954 ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 40s/Mid 50s. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
Very rootsy blues from the Motor City scene of the postwar years – work that almost sounds more Delta than Detroit – thanks to the primitive recording setting in the back of Joe's Record Shop! The work here is a really unique representation of blues in a northern setting at the time – and although some of the tunes have styles that might have been at home on Chess Records, most of them are looser and earthier. About half the material was issued on King/DeLuxe Records back in the day, but a good number of titles here are previously unissued too – and as with all Ace releases, there's loads of great notes, photos, and historical information on the music! Titles include "Up Boy" by Johnny Wright, "Vacation Blues" by Johnny Howard, "Soft Pillow" by Joe Weaver & His Blue Notes, "Hello Miss Jessie Lee" by Eddie Burns, "Eva Lee" by James Walton, "Time For My Lovin To Be Done" by Eddie Kirkland, "New York Central" by Robert Richard, "I Was In St Louis" by Johnny Wright, and "Wigwam Woman" by Robert Richard.

✨✧ Wendell Harrison & Eddie HarrisBattle Of The Tenors – Live At The 1994 Montreux–Detroit Jazz Festival ... CD
Enja (Germany), 1994. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A legendary meeting of two famous tenor talents – the mighty Eddie Harris, and Detroit legend Wendell Harrison – recorded live together at the Montreux Detroit Festival in 1994. The pair play together in a variety of modes – from twin tenor solo battle styles, to mellower, more open and spacious ones – showing Harris to be still extremely inventive at this later point in his life. Eddie even vocalizes a bit, as he did on some of his 70s records – and the rest of the group features drums, electric guitar, and electric bass – which makes for some funkier moments at times. Titles include "Vocalese", "My Shining Hour", "The Wok", "Tenor Madness", and "Ampedextrious". CD

✨✧ Ronnie Scott with Kenny Graham's Afro-CubistsBattle Royale – Studio Recordings Volume 2 ... CD
Esquire/Solid (Japan), 1951/1952. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sublime early work from the legendary Ronnie Scott – small group numbers that show him starting out the 50s as a hell of a bopper, and a handful of tracks with a Latin vibe – cut with Kenny Graham's Afro-Cubists! Those cuts begin the set, and they're wonderful – material that often has Scott out front, soloing on tenor alongside Graham – with Latin jazz backings, in a way that's similar to the best cubop material that Verve was doing at the time! The remaining part of the record features Scott leading two different small groups – with players who include Dill Jones on piano, Harry Klein on baritone, and Tony Crombie on drums. Titles include "Not So Fast", "Fast", "Twin Beds", "Avalon", "Scott's Expedition", "Nemo", "Troubled Air", "Eureka", and "Seven Eleven". CD

✨✧ VariousTwas The Night Before Hanukkah – The Musical Battle Between Christmas & The Festival Of Lights ... CD
Idelsohn Society, 1930s/1940s/1950s/1960s/1970s/1980s/1990s/2000s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A musical package that really gets at the cultural tension of the twelfth month of the year – the "battle between Christmas and the festival of lights", to quote the title – served up here in a double-length collection of unusual seasonal songs! CD one features unusual Hanukkah numbers, mostly from the 20th century – including some very traditional tunes and great tongue in cheek remakes – most of which we've never heard before. CD two is even cooler, though – a whole set of Christmas tunes, but played by Jewish artists – illustrating the cultural challenges that come from working in the mainstream during the Holidays! The mix of tunes is pretty great – from rock numbers to vocal jazz, folk, and a bit of easy listening – some familiar, some obscure – and again a pretty great set of tracks! The package also comes with an oversize book that details the songs and features some key writings on the "battle" – and the 2CD set features 34 tracks that include "Little Drummer Boy" by Bob Dylan, "Grandma's Dreidel" by Mickey Katz, "Hanukah Tree" by the Klezmatics, "Twelve Days Of Christmas" by Dinah Shore, "Holiday ID" by Lou Reed, "El Dia De La Navidad" by Larry Harlow, "Santa Claus Came In The Spring" by Benny Goodman, "It's Christmas All Over The World" by Sammy Davis Jr, "I Got A Cold For Christmas" by The Ames Brothers, "A Chanukah Quiz" by Gladys Gewirtz, "Hanukkah Dance" by Woody Guthrie, "Twas The Night Before Chanukah" by Stanley Adams & Sid Wayne, "The Latke Song" by Debbie Friedman, "O Little Town Of Bethlehem" by Richard Tucker, and "The Problem" by Ray Brenner & Barry Blitzer.

✨✧ John SwensonNew Atlantis – Musicians Battle For The Survival Of New Orleans (hardcover) ... Book
Oxford University Press (UK), 2011. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The New Orleans music scene has certainly found a way to thrive and survive in the wake of Katrina – but it hasn't been without years of struggle, as author John Swenson portrays in this deeply-written book! The struggles aren't just water or storm-related – as Swenson details the shifting Crescent City landscape of the past decade or so – the larger shifts in the social and tourist scene, and the more subtle ones that continue to threaten the city – including long-ignored ecological issues that could put New Orleans in the same place as before. Chapters are relatively short, but in a good way that really draws focus on individual artists and aspects of the scene – and the hardcover book is 284 pages, with some black and white images. Book

✨✧ Mongo SantamariaWatermelon Man! ... LP
Battle, 1962. Very Good ... $16.99
A seminal moment in the career of Mongo Santamaria – and probably the first record to show that he was destined for greatness! As you might guess from the title, the set features Mongo's key recording of Herbie Hancock's "Watermelon Man" – served up here in a sharp-edged Latin jazz version that pushed the tune into a whole new audience, and which was one of the first big groovers of its type in the pre-Latin Soul years! The group here is totally great – with players that include funky flautist Mauricio Smith, baritone genius Pat Patrick, and the always-great Bobby Capers – all key players who illustrate Santamaria's genius for picking horn players. Titles include "Watermelon Man", "Yeh Yeh", "Funny Money", "Go Git It", "Sauvito", "Cut That Cane", and "Bayou Roots". LP, Vinyl record album

Mongo SantamariaWatermelon Man/Don't Bother Me No More ... 7-inch
Battle, Early 60s. Very Good- ... $6.99
A piece of history! Mongo's original recording of "Watermelon Man" – cut barely after Herbie Hancock wrote the tune, and done in a funky Latinized way that instantly made the cut as important for Mongo as it was for Herbie. In fact, we really have to say that we like this version better – as it's got some hard-hitting rhythms, edgey horns, and a few great shouted vocal bits! "Don't Bother Me" is a great number too – kind of a prototype for the Latin soul sound of the late 60s – short, hard, and very choppy! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Billy ButlerRight Tracks – The Complete Okeh Recordings 1963 to 1966 ... CD
Okeh/Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $8.99 18.99
The complete Okeh label recordings of Billy Butler – Jerry Butler's lesser-known brother, but an even more grooving artist on the Chicago soul scene of the 60s! Billy's work at Okeh is easily some of the best of the all-great imprint – tracks that step, slide, and groove along in a flurry of tight-edged Chi-soul rhythms – nearly all of which are produced by the legendary Carl Davis, with arrangements from Johnny Pate and Riley Hampton! Billy's in the lead on vocals, but nearly all numbers have a strong harmony soul component too – support from The Four Enchanters or Chanters – in a mode that echoes The Impressions' style of the time somewhat, but which also carries more of the Butler-family emotive quality, thanks to the stronger lead. This is the first time all this material has ever been brought together so well – and the package features great notes and a number of previously unissued titles as well – including some rare versions and instrumentals that are sure to get some play from Northern Soul listeners. Titles include "Found True Love", "Lady Love", "Gotta Get Away", "Can't Live Without Her", "Right Track", "Boston Monkey", "Does It Matter", "Fighting A Losing Battle", "To Be Or Not To Be", "Singing The Blues", and "You're Gonna Be Sorry".

✨✧ Arnett CobbBlow Arnett, Blow ... LP
Prestige, 1959. Very Good ... $14.99
Blow Arnette does, at that – a killer tenor groove that's augmented here by some additional work from Eddie Lockjaw Davis! The pair really let loose on some of the tunes here – blowing in that older "battle" mode at points, but also laying back at times too – hitting a soulful ballad tone that almost reminds us of the late nite album Davis cut for RCA with Paul Gonsalves. There's some great organ in the lineup – played by Strethen Davis, a player who didn't record that often – and bass is by George Duviver and drums are by Arthur Edgehill. Titles include "When I Grow Too Old To Dream", "Go Power", "Dutch Kitchen Boogie", "Go Red Go", "The Eely One", and "The Fluke". LP, Vinyl record album

MGM, 1967. Near Mint- ... $3.99
A classic 60s soundtrack from Frak DeVol – filled with bold themes, dramatic action, and some of the most sharp-edged scoring Hollywood could offer at the time! The WWII setting of the film makes for a fair bit of military moments in the music – but there's also some surprisingly tender spots too – penned by DeVol for more intimate moments in the film, or tense bits during the bigger action. Titles include "Main Title From The Dirty Dozen", "Building The Barracks", "The Battle Begins", "Girls Of The Evening", "The Dirty Dozen", "Mission Accomplished", "Bramble Bush", "The Sham Battle" and "The Switch Hitters".

Duke Ellington & Count BasieFirst Time – The Count Meets The Duke ... LP
Columbia, 1962. Very Good- ... $6.99
Hard to believe it took a few decades in the careers of both players for them to record together – but that's exactly what you've got here – a landmark meeting of Count Basie and Duke Ellington from the early 60s, near the tail end of Duke's classic stretch on Columbia! Teo Macero produced the session with just the right amount of care and class to keep the whole thing from being an exercise in cliche – and there's a surprising amount of depth here that you might not expect – the best modern elements of Duke's orchestra on Columbia, coming into play with a bit more of the fire and vamp of the Basie group at the time! Titles include "Battle Royal", "Wild Man", "Segue In C", "Jumpin At The Woodside", "To You", and "Take The A Train". LP, Vinyl record album

Orrin Evans#Knowingishalfthebattle ... CD
Smoke Sessions, 2016. New Copy ... $16.99 17.98
The first track here almost made us think we had the wrong record in the sound system – as it's a creative electronic piece that introduces the straighter jazz numbers – but that sonic surprise is just another great reminder of the ever-growing range of expression we've come to experience from pianist Orrin Evans! Evans has always been great, but in recent years he really seems to have expanded his musical idiom – and here, he's working with an unusual group that features two guitarists – Kurt Rosenwinkel and Kevin Eubanks – who don't play on every track, or together at once, but who create these chromatic elements that are beautiful alongside Orrin's more angular piano lines! The core trio has Evans on both acoustic and Fender Rhodes, with Luques Curtis on bass and Mark Whitfield on drums – and as the tracks move on, they draw contributions from both guitarists, plus saxophonist Caleb Curtis, and singer M'Balia – whose performances include a fantastic version of the David Bowie tune "Kooks", and "That's All". Other tracks include "Calls", "When Jen Came In", "Chiara", "You Don't Need A License To Drive", "Half The Battle", and "Doc's Holiday". CD

Led ZeppelinLed Zeppelin IV (remastered edition) ... CD
Atlantic, 1971. Used Gatefold ... $4.99
Hard rock perfected! It's around Led Zeppelin IV that you can easily say that the group moved up from being incredibly great to flat-out legendary – really in a class by themselves, although maybe they'd already reached that point with the sublime sounds of the previous three records! There's a darkness here – and a sense of magick too – an eerie new energy that still has all the balls-out rock power of before, but which has the group moving into this heady territory that's really all their own. Every song is a classic – and tracks include "Black Dog", "Stairway To Heaven", "Rock And Roll", "Misty Mountain Hop", "When The Levee Breaks", "Going To California", "Four Sticks", and "Battle Of Evermore".

✨✧ Herbie MannLive At The Whiskey 1969 – Unreleased Masters ... CD
Atlantic/Real Gone, 1969. New Copy 2 CDs ... $26.99 29.98
Never-heard music from one of the hippest groups ever led by flute man Herbie Mann – a killer lineup that includes Roy Ayers on vibes, Sonny Sharrock on guitar, and Steve Marcus on tenor! The tracks here are all previously unreleased – pulled from the same recordings that gave the world the Live At The Whiskey A Go Go album, but much more far-reaching overall – in a way that not only shows the full range of sounds the group could produce, but which also really brings out some individual moments of genius from each player! Roy's vibes are wonderful – with some very bold chromes, but his usual sense of warmth, too – which can make for a striking comparison with the edges in Sharrock's guitar and the soulfulness of Marcus' tenor. Linda Sharrock sings a bit on the record, but most of the album features long, extended jams from a group that also includes Miroslav Vitous on bass and Bruno Carr on drums – on titles that include "Untitled Jam", "Black Woman", "All Blues", "Portait Of Linda In Three Colors All Black", "Chain Of Fools", "Tangier/If I Were A Carpenter", "Scarborough Fair", "Philly Dog", and "Comin Home Baby/Battle Hymn Of The Republic".

The history of women's rights in the 20th Century – presented here in a beautiful art book format that's filled with hundreds of stunning images throughout!

German Greer provides the introduction, but author Liz McQuiston's the real star of the show here – doing a mindblowing job of representing the ongoing battle for political freedoms and equality, and showcasing a range of feminist heroes we never would have discovered otherwise.

Pure brilliance from Don Pullen – arguably some of the best recordings ever made by the adventurous pianist – packaged here together in one incredible collection! Pullen was already a key force in the American underground by the time of these recordings – but really took everything to the next level with the Black Saint/Soul Note label – finding a way to focus his energy, and really realize his musical vision like never before – and, in a way, hitting heights that he might never hit later in his career either! Each album here is a treasure on its own – and together, the set is a hell of a package – one that features Pullen's piano in the company of players like Chico Freeman, Joseph Jarman, or Sam Rivers on reeds; Olu Dara on trumpet; Fred Hopkins on bass; Bobby Battle on drums; and Don Moye on percussion – as well as two great records that feature Don alone at the piano. The set features the albums Capricorn Rising, Healing Force, Warriors, Milano Strut, The Magic Triangle, Evidence Of Things Unseen, and The Sixth Sense – all of them great! CD

Leonard RosenmanMan Called Horse ... CD
Film Score Monthly, 1970. Used ... $16.99
Compelling work from Leonard Rosenman – one of the more diverse soundtrack talents of his generation! The music here is from an unusual film in which Richard Harris plays a white man learning the ways of the Native American – and while the premise is probably a bit outdated, Roseman's score holds up nicely over the years – referencing some traditional Sioux sounds to mix with fuller Hollywood orchestrations – but in ways that still keep things pretty darn edgey, and (dare we say it!) really predate some of the best cultural crossover experiments in soundtrack scoring that would emerge in the 80s. The CD features a full range of tracks from the film plus bonus materials too – including some core Sioux chants which are then layered in the main music tracks in the score. Titles include "John Morgan Becomes An Indian", "Enter Village Running", "The Battle", "Wedding Night", and "Red Cloud" – all wrapped up with excellent Film Score Monthly notes, images, and impeccable production!

Akira SakataTale Of The Heike (includes bonus download) ... LP
Trost (Austria), 2016. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $18.99
Mindblowing sounds from legendary reedman Akira Sakata – working here in a setting that's mostly solo, but which also includes some group material from a DVD of the performance too! The core tracks have Sakata blowing amazingly on alto, clarinet, and bass clarinet – these long, thoughtful solos that really mark his contribution to improvised music over the years – almost poetic, even though they're very freewheeling – and marked at points by these raspy, rumbling vocal recitations by Akira – with a tone that's almost as mezmerizing and unique as his work on reed instruments! Solo titles include "Gion Shoja", "The Death Of Kiso", "The Matter Of The Six Paths", "The Assault From The Cliff", "The Death Of Atsumori", and "Battle Of Dan No Ura". Then, the set also includes some group numbers, recorded live – with Jim O'Rourke on guitar, Tatsuhisha Yamamoto on drums and percussion, Chizuru Ishii on percussion and taiko, and Yumiko Tanaka on shamisen – on titles that include "See Chanty Of Ondo", "The Chapter Of The Battle", and "The Death Of Kiso".

Lalo SchifrinEnter The Dragon ... CD
Warner (Germany), 1973. Used ... $8.99
A classic to end all classics – and the record that showed the world that the kung fu genre could be every bit as funky as American crime and action films! Lalo Schifrin's at the height of his powers on this set – working in a blend of raw guitars, rolling bass, and choppy rhythms that groove about as fast as Bruce Lee's hands move on the screen in the film – and the album's a real standout in the 70s soundtrack scene, well worth all the hype and attention that's been given to it over the years! The record's one you'll dig if you're a fan of funk, or a student of Schifrin – and even after the passage of decades, it's still a tough soundtrack to beat. Titles include the classic "Theme From Enter The Dragon", plus "Bamboo Bird Cage", "The Monk", "Han's Island", "The Big Battle", and "The Human Fly". CD

Chess, Early 60s. Very Good ... $3.99
A nice little album – featuring some of the sides that Gene Ammons cut "off contract" for Chess/Argo during the early 60s, and ones that feature him paired with Sonny Stitt, his longtime partner in legendary tenor battles from the 50s. The two horns aren't really locked in combat here, but they do complement each other nicely on the album's mellow groovers and ballad tracks. Titles include "Cha Bootie", "Tenor Eleven", "The Last Mile", and "Full Moon". LP, Vinyl record album

Eric EtheridgeBreach Of Peace – Portraits of The 1961 Mississippi Freedom Riders (hardcover) ... Book
Atlas, 2008. New Copy ... $6.99 30.00
A very striking portrait of the price of freedom – a book that features police mug shots of Freedom Riders who helped break down boundaries during the key years of Civil Rights – folks whose sacrifice and struggles opened the door to freedoms we enjoy today ! The oversize book is way more than just photos, though – as it offers up the original images from when the subjects were arrested for peaceful protest – along with details on their life at the time, plus the paths they've taken since the 60s – often with a contemporary photograph in juxtaposition. Together, these elements tell a fascinating history – of fighters who've continued to fight, as new battles are waged in defense of these hard-won freedoms. Most photos are black and white – and the oversized book is hardcover, and 240 pages. Book

✨✧ Kool Moe DeeHow Ya Like Me Now ... LP
Jive, 1987. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
Kool Moe Dee's second album – a benchmark moment in mid-to-late 80s solo rap – and definitely worth a post millennium revisit! The title cut is a prime relic of the Kool Moe Dee vs. LL Cool J battles back in the day, and that along with "Wild Wild West" are bonafide classic cuts – but the a lot of the lesser remembered tracks here are ultimately just as nice. Even though it's only his second album, Moe was a block rockin' veteren by this point, with an MC pedigree stretching back to Treacherous Three, and is probably his sharpest point. Other tracks include "Suckers", "Way Way Back", "No Respect", "Don't Dance", "I'm A Player" and "Get Paid". LP, Vinyl record album

Henry ManciniMancini's Angels/Theme Scene ... CD
RCA/Vocalion (UK), 1977/1978. Used ... $11.99
Two groovy late 70s albums from Henry Mancini – back to back on a single CD! Mancini's Angels has happy Hank surrounded by plenty of cleavage – a cover that's perfect for the album's title play on the hit Charlie's Angels show! Mancini does a great job with the theme to that one, and also adds in some cool keyboards you wouldn't have heard on the original – and the rest of the album is a mix of other mid 70s TV themes, plus some cool originals penned by Mancini himself, but with a very similar flavor – often quite funky, in a soundtrack sort of way. Titles include "Charlie's Angels", "Car Wash", "Silver Streak", "Inspector Clouseau Theme", "Gonna Fly Now", "What's Happening", "The Moneychangers", and "Evergreen". The Theme Scene features plenty of cool 70s soundtrack themes – titles pulled from both film and TV use, some with a feel that's every bit as funky as Henry Mancini's great work on the Cop Show album! Titles include "The Cheap Detective", "Star Trek", "Heaven Can Wait", "Children Of Sanchez", "Battlestar Galactica", "Once Is Not Enough", "Three's Company", "NBC News Theme", and "Fantasy Island".

✨✧ Don Pullen & Sam RiversCapricorn Rising ... LP
Black Saint (Italy), 1975. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A richly dynamic set from pianist Don Pullen, and one of his farthest-out sessions from the mid 70s – especially considering he had just finished a tenure as Mingus' piano player not long before this set was recorded! The "outness" of the date is probably due in part to reedman Sam Rivers, who brings a great deal of energy to the set, and wrote half of the numbers the group performs (the other half are from Pullen) – and the players work here in a quartet that features bassist Alex Blake and drummer Bobby Battles. The set's got a lot of the freewheeling energy that Rivers was hitting in the 70s – and titles include "Capricorn Rising", "Fall Out", "Joycie Girl". and "Break Out". LP, Vinyl record album

Classic New Orleans funk featuring backing from the "New Orleans Project" that includes the Gaturs' Willie Tee, Earl Turbinton, and other Crescent City session stalwarts like Larry Panna and Julius Farmer. Includes lots of tracks that rocked the rare groove scene in the 80s, including "(Somebody Got) Soul Soul Soul" and "Corey Died On The Battlefield". With nice sweet keyboards, and a good funky New Orleans sound that you won't find on many other records from the time. A great one! Other tracks include "Handa Wanda", "Smoke My Peace Pipe (Smoke It Right)", "Shoo Fly", "Ho Na Nae", "Saints" and more. CD

75 Ark/Deltron Partners, 2000. New Copy 2 LPs (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Del Tha Funkee Homosapien, Kid Koala, and Dan The Automator pool their skills for this dawn of the 2000s sci-fi hip hop classic – the masterful Deltron 3030! The guest list is almost too long to get into, but Money Mark, Prince Paul, PB Wolf and Mr. Lif are all here, along with many others. One of the benchmark albums in the leftfield underground hip hop canon – and a hugely influential set that burst the doors wide open for the more creative spirits in the hip hop and even experimental pop. Tracks include "State Of The Nation", "3030", "The Fantabulous Rap Extravaganza", "Things You Can Do", "Positive Contact", "St Catherine St.", "Virus", "Mastermind", "National Movie Review", "Time Keeps On Slipping", "Turbulence (remix)", "Battlesong", "Memory Loss" and more.

✨✧ Sharon Jones & The Dap KingsMiss Sharon Jones (DVD) ... DVD
Daptone, 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The amazing story of the late Sharon Jones – a hell of a soul singer, and one who battled difficult odds to become one of the hippest, hardest, heaviest talents in our generation! Sharon's passing has left us all with a mighty wide hole in our hearts – and this documentary does a slight job in filling that space – by showing some great performance footage with The Dap-Kings, and giving us lots of behind the scenes footage as she struggles with the cancer diagnosis that eventually took her life. Given the outcome of Sharon's situation, the film – released shortly before her death – is something less than triumphant – but the mighty spirit of the singer is completely inspiring, and will stand as a legacy to us all. 95 minutes, in color.

✨✧ Art PepperReturn Of Art Pepper – The Complete Art Pepper Aladdin Recordings Vol 1 ... CD
Jazz West/Blue Note, 1956. Used ... Out Of Stock
Given that Pepper was on and off the LA scene a fair bit in the 50s – due to personal trouble and legal battles – this album's not so much "the return", as it is one of Pepper's many strong steps back into the studio, a place in which he demonstrated an uncanny ability to craft brilliant work, despite the turmoil going on around him. The set's as classic as you can get for Pepper – right down to the classic William Claxton photo on the cover (which has a chilling story that you'll find in Art's autobiography). Players include Jack Sheldon, Russ Freeman, Leroy Vinnegar, and Shelly Manne – and titles include "Pepper Returns", "Funny Blues", "Angel Wings", "Walkin Out Blues", "Five More", "Minority", and "Mambo De La Pinta".

✨✧ VariousGet On Board Little Children – The Modern Gospel Recordings ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The Modern Records label is best known for a huge run of R&B classics in the postwar years – but during the same stretch, the company also recorded some great gospel material too – tracks that are lesser-known than their secular music, but every bit as soulful overall! The cuts here are often pretty stripped-down and spare – with less of the larger arrangements that Modern was bringing to its jump blues and solo singers – and instead more of a focus on the incredible vocal interplay between the singers in the group – many of whom were forging out the kind of dynamics that would later break big in the world of doo wop, but which really had their start in spiritual sounds like this. The package brings together 28 rare tracks from the vaults of Modern/RPM – some never issued before, and all with really wonderful sound – in the best Ace Records tradition. Titles include "In My Savior's Care" by Four Star Quartet, "Just A Little Talk With Jesus" by Smith Jubilee Singers, "Satisfied" by Harmonizers, "Go Devil Go" by Madam Ira Mae Littlejohn, "Climbing Jacob's Ladder" by Echoes Of Zion, "The Sun Will Never Go Down" by Swanee River Quartet, "On My Way (parts 1 & 2)" by Rev CC Chapman, "I Wanna See Jesus" by Madam Ira Mae Littlejohn, "Get On Board Little Children" by James Earle Hines & His Goodwill Singers, "I Took My Master's Hand" by Echoes Of Zion, "On The Battlefield For The Lord" by Swanee River Qurtet, and "Steal Away To Jesus" by Four Star Quartet.
