ZTT/Island, 1983. Near Mint- ... $7.99
Fantastic stuff – and still sounding pretty fresh today! This is the first e.p. of tracks from Art of Noise, a groundbreaking set of sound collage tracks that mixes samples, beats, and dada instrumentation into a groove that definitely set the tone for the next 10 years. The record includes the original mix of their spacey stepper "Moments In Love", plus the hard funky "Beat Box", and the cuts "Comes & Goes", "The Army Now", and "Battle". LP, Vinyl record album

Sil Austin & Red PrysockBattle Royal ... CD
Evergreen, 1959. Used ... $12.99
Hard-wailing tenor work from two of the late 50's best R&B sax stars! Both Prysock and Austin were often recorded by Mercury in albums that didn't show their best sides, or which didn't let them open up the same way as in their very popular live sets – but this album has them playing head-to-head, on long extended tracks that seek to recreate the "battle of the tenors" style from a few years back! The record features 2 long tracks – "Take The A Train" and "No 1 Sil" – plus a shorter mellower number, "Kenny's Blues". This CD version also includes 16 additional numbers! CD

Entracte/Southern Cross, 1970/1975. Used ... $9.99
A dramatic score by Herrmann – written for this 1970 film about a key battle in WWII. Herrmann directs the London Philharmonic, and the whole thing's very action-packed – less edgey than some of Bernard's more famous scores, but strongly voiced nonetheless. Titles include "Prelude", "The Retreat", "Chetnik's March", "Separation", "Farewell", "Death Of Danica", and "Turning Point". CD

TurtlesTurtles Present The Battle of The Bands (with bonus tracks) ... CD
White Whale/Edsel (UK), 1968. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
One of the coolest concepts ever for a 60s rock record – and maybe one of the standout sets from The Turtles! The album is set up as a "Battle Of The Bands" – one that has the group pretending to be a different ensemble from track to track on the record, either Natures Children, Fats Mallard & The Bluegrass Fireball, The Bigg Brothers, The LA Bust '66, and many other fake combos – all in a way that offers up a brilliant commentary on rock music in the late 60s! The effortlessness with which the group approaches the songs is fantastic – each number could have been a hit for the individual groups, were they real. One of our favorite tracks is the incredible "I'm Chief Kamanawanalea", played by the Royal Macademia Nuts – which has an incredible funky breakbeat all the way through! Another nice one is the funky cut "Buzzsaw", which has a fuzzy guitar groove that sounds a lot like "Tramp" – and other titles include "Surfer Dan", "The Last Thing I Remember", "Elenore", "You Showed Me", "Food", and "Chicken Little Was Right". 2CD version features 11 more bonus tracks – other songs from the project, as well as a radio spot – with titles that include "Can't You Hear The Cows", "The Owl", "The Last Thing I Remember", "Umbassa The Dragon", and "To See The Sun".

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.

Blood Sweat & Tears3 ... LP
Columbia, 1970. Very Good Gatefold ... $2.99
Blood Sweat & Tears are really stretching out here – working their already-famous magic through a range of great tunes, both originals and covers – and coming up with some great longer-form expressions of their sound in the process! David Clayton-Thomas is firmly in the lead on vocals – but at points, the instrumentation almost takes over even more – especially on some of the jazz-heavy jam numbers that would go onto shape generations of high school and college music ensembles! Side two features the excellent "Symphony For The Devil/Sympathy For The Devil" suite – and other cuts include "He's A Runner", "The Battle", "Lucretia MacEvil", "Lonesome Suzie", "Fire & Rain", "40,000 Headmen", and "Hi De Ho".

Arthur BlytheLenox Avenue Breakdown/In The Tradition/Illusions/Blythe Spirit ... CD
Columbia/BGO (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $14.99
Four great albums from reedman Arthur Blythe – all together in one collection! First up is Lenox Avenue Breakdown – a stunning Columbia Records debut from Blythe! At the time of the date, Blythe had already spent years working in the jazz undergrounds on both coasts – developing a searing sound on alto sax that's perfect for the focused structure of this album – almost a tone poem of sorts, offering up a portrait of the Harlem scene that was a key part of Arthur's life at the time. The sounds are sharp, but also have a sense of energy that really holds them together – guiding the players through long readings of well-penned tunes by Blythe that are filled with loads of energy and life! Players include James Newton on flute, James Blood Ulmer on guitar, Bob Stewart on tuba, Cecil McBee on bass, Jack DeJohnette on drums, and Guillermo Franco on percussion – and titles include "Odessa", "Slidin Through", "Down San Diego Way", and "Lenox Avenue Breakdown". In The Tradition is a gem – as the set represents the modern musician taking on a host of older jazz currents, while carving things out with his own special sort of soul! Half the tunes are familiar favorites, the other half originals – and Blythe moves far past his avant roots, to showcase his deep understanding of so many different shades of jazz – blowing alto beautifully throughout, in a very hip quartet that features Stanley Cowell on piano, Fred Hopkins on bass, and Steve McCall on drums! Titles include great takes on "Naima", "Jitterbug Waltz", "Caravan", and "In A Sentimental Mood" – plus the originals "Break Tune" and "Hip Dipper". Illusions is maybe the boldest of Arthur Blythe's albums for Columbia Records – as the set bristles with newly creative energy right from the start, and provides a great showcase for some of the criss-crossings of styles and rhythms that were taking place on the New York scene at the time! The lineup alone announces something special – a cool combination of James Blood Ulmer on guitar, John Hicks on piano, Fred Hopkins on bass, Abdul Wadud on cello, Bob Stewart on tuba, and Steve McCall on drums – working together in some slight variations at times, often with these angular edges that are perfectly sharpened by Arthur's amazing work on alto sax. The music's never too free, but quite outside for a major label at the time – balanced out so that it's never overindulgent at all. Titles include "Bush Baby", "Miss Nancy", "My Son Ra", and "Carespin With Mamie". Blythe Spirit is a set that showcases the never-ending growth and imagination of reedman Arthur Blythe during this fruitful period of his career – and his ability to effortlessly blend together different elements in his music – especially sides of the New York loft jazz scene, and the Chicago-based AACM! The tunes are beautiful – mostly originals, and showing a richer spirituality than even a year before – while still working in that compellingly rhythmic mode that Arthur was hitting during these years – in a lineup that features Blythe on alto, Abdul Wadud on cello, Kelvyn Bell on guitar, Steve McCall and Bobby Battle on drums, John Hicks on piano, Amina Claudine Myers on organ, and Fred Hopkins on bass. The mix of electric and acoustic elements is fantastic – very fresh, even all these many years later – and titles include "Misty", "Spirits In The Field", "Just A Closer Walk With Thee", "Reverence", and "Contemplation".

Each side has one long track – one in "Chuck's Beat", one in "Bo's Beat" – in which each guitarist is given the chance to really stretch out and do his thing alongside the other – almost kind of a "battle" of the sort that tenor players would have in jazz!

Duke Ellington & Count BasieFirst Time – The Count Meets The Duke ... CD
Columbia, 1962. Used ... $0.99
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". CD

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".

Oscar PettifordNew York City 1955 to 1958 ... CD
Uptown, Mid 50s. New Copy 2CDs ... $20.99 24.99
An insane amount of rare material from legendary bassist Oscar Pettiford – not only one of the most forward-thinking musicians on his instrument during the postwar years, but also an extremely inventive leader, who found ways of merging bop modernism with a large group format! The recordings here are all well-recorded, originally done for radio in New York – and the 2CD set features a whopping 48 tracks in all, from seven different performances by Pettiford, mostly at Birdland – with an incredible lineup of players throughout, musicians who include Donald Byrd, Johnny Coles, and Art Farmer on trumpets; Jimmy Cleveland and Eddie Bert on trombones; Sahib Shihab on alto and baritone; Gigi Gryce and Gene Quill on alto; Hank Jones, Dick Katz, and Hod O'Brien on piano; and Jerome Richardson and JR Monterose on tenor. The arrangements are wonderful – by Pettiford, Lucky Thompson, Gigi Gryce, and Benny Golson – and the set features performances by a nonet, sextet, and larger band. Some songs are performed a few different times, by different lineups – and titles include Kamman's A Comin", "Smoke Signal", "Two French Fries", "The Gentle Art Of Love", "I Remember Clifford", "Jack The Bear", "Battle Axe", "Stablemates", "45 Degree Angle", and "The Pendulum At Falcon's Lair".

Black Saint (Italy), 1978. Near Mint- ... $11.99
Bold sounds from this hip quartet of American players – working here on an early session for the Black Saint label, in a recording that's got a really great sense of focus! The album's dominated by the two-part track "Warriors Dance" – a number that builds beautifully on rhythms from the bass of Fred Hopkins and drums of Bobby Battle, punctuated by sharper piano from Don Pullman and wild tenor sounds from Chico Freeman – soulfully crafted, but also with some of the playful aspects you'd find in 70s work from the AACM. The tune shifts its shape a lot over the course of its 30-plus minutes – and the album's completed by the wonderful "Land Of The Pharoahs" – a leaping number with a great spiritual avant energy!

It's a pretty great piece from the genre – thundering drums and bursting horns to march and battle to, much more subtle orchestrations of lulling strings and horns, puncuation by tense bursts with dramatic flail. 21 sequences on the title theme "I Massacro Della Foresta Nera".

Southern Routes, Late 50s/1960s. New Copy Gatefold ... $18.99 19.99
The influence of Johnny Cash was a huge one in American music – not just in country, but in rock as well – especially given that some of Johnny's first important recordings came out on the Sun label from Memphis! Yet while the bigger sides of Cash's influence have been debated often over the years, he also had a huge impact on the underground, too – as you'll hear in this very cool collection of rare 45s that offer up a whole new version of the Johnny Cash sound! That fast-stepping rhythm of the early Sun singles informs most of these cuts – and Johnny's deep-voiced presentation of the lyrics also clearly has its place – as does the weird array of subject matter. But the whole thing is also way more than just a cheap cash-in collection (no pun intended!) – as the album's a fantastic portrait of the country underground that circulated on smaller indie labels, who mostly issued 45s. Titles include "Iron Man" by Bill Compton, "The Battle Of Earl K Long" by Ernie Barton, "Only Fools" by Wes Buchanan, "That's The Way It Goes" by Durwood Daly, "Long Legged Guitar Pickin Man" by Tar Heel Drifters, "Devil Train" by Johnny Doe, "Working All My Life" by Jim Nesbitt, "Lead Guitar Man" by Sammy Julian, "Ridin Fence" by Sleepy Labeef, and "The Cash Song" by Circle K Wranglers.

A slice of soul you might never expect – early work from the De-Lite label, a company better-known for their famous club hits of the late 70s – but starting out here with an amazing array of deep soul 45s! The music is a wonderful contrast to the disco and club of the label's fame – and showcases an immediate commitment to singers who could really knock it out of the park – with vocals that rival the sounds coming from southern labels like Stax, or some of the more famous productions on Atlantic – which is a huge surprise if you only know the De-Lite recordings by Kool & The Gang or The Kay-Gees! 25 tracks in all – all super-rare – and titles include "Keep Away" by The Appointments, "Look What You Done For Me" by Contributors Of Soul, "Oh Girl" by Johnny Washington, "Need You Girl" by Fred Cole, "I Wish It Would Rain" by Beverly Hammonds, "Say So" by La Jay Alexander, "Everlasting Love" by Johnny Washington, "I Saw You There" by The Appointments, "I Smell Trouble" by Johnny De'Vigne, "I'll Always Love You" by Felton Burks, "Send Her Back" by Sammy Taylor, "When A Woman Loves A Man" by Jean Battle, "Tender Loving Care" by Joe Kennedy, and "I Got To Get Close To You" by Yvonne Daniels.

17 North Parade, Late 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $18.99 21.98
Raw and soulful Jamaican rocksteady – first class in quality and first class stylistically – strongly representative of the brief, but pivotal rocksteady sound that presaged the reggae revolution to come! The sound essentially stripped some of the bigger arrangements of Jamaican ska and earlier styles – and focuses more on an R&B-influenced sound with impeccable rhythms, achingly soulful vocals, and tight, tuneful songs that really let the singers hit new heights! The anthology is very well done – part of this great 17 North Parade wave in recent years, which almost has them taking over classic reggae comps from Soul Jazz – with numbers by Hopeton Lewis, Stranger Cole, Lynn Taitt, The Melodians, The Uniques, Desmond Dekker and more. Titles include "Take It Easy" by Hopeton Lewis, "Hold Them" by Roy Shirley with Lynn Taitt & His Band, "Rock Steady" by Alton Ellis & The Flames, "Love And Love" by Carlton Manning, "Last Train To Ecstasy" by The Melodians, "Born To Love You" by The Sensations, "You Don't Care" by The Techniques with Tommy McCook & The Supersonics, "The Great Musical Battle" by Derrick Morgan, "Got To Get Away" by The Paragons, "Revelation" by Alva Lewis, "Hold Me Tight" by Johnny Nash, "Darling Jeboza Macoo" by Stranger Cole and more.

VariousLost Train Blues – John & Alan Lomax & The Early Folk Music Collections At The Library Of Congress ... LP
Jalopy, Late 30s/Early 40s. New Copy (reissue)... $15.99
A beautiful excavation of the Library of Congress recordings – one that pulls together a great range of depression-era songs that really capture the changing culture and continuing struggles of the time! There's a range of different styles at play here, but the overall focus is on acoustic music – with strong folk and string-based instrumentation on most numbers – and especially strong, charismatic singers who can really burst out, even though the recording conditions weren't always optimal! Most artists are very obscure – recorded in the field by Alan and John Lomax, and other members of their team – and titles include "The Moonshiner" by Dawson Henson, "Longest Train I Ever Saw" by Jesse Wadley, "WPA Song" by Clyde Kingfish Smith, "Battle In The Horseshoe" by JW Russell, "Travelin To That New Buryin Ground" by Hammer Clarence Banks, and "Roosevelt & Hitler" by Buster Buzz Ezell.

Warner/Wounded Bird, 1971. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
One of the less-remembered records from the era of the giant rock festival – a set of tracks that were recorded during a wild cross-country hippie caravan! Although maybe not another Woodstock, the album does have some long live tracks that are really worth seeking out – in a relatively surprising blend of musicians that makes for a pretty interesting record overall! Highlights include a searing eight minute take on "Black Juju" by Alice Cooper, a ten minute medley of "How Blue Can You Get/Just A Little Love" by BB King, a twelve minute "Freakout/It Takes A Lot To Laugh" by Stoneground, a version of "Free The People" by Delaney & Bonnie, one of the rawest Doug Kershaw performances we've ever heard on "Louisiana Man/Battle Of New Orleans/Orange Blossom Special", Sal Valentino singing "Dreambo", and the Youngbloods tracks "Hippie From Olema" and "Act Naturally", both nicely tongue in cheek.

VariousOnce Upon A Time At King Tubby's ... LP
Pressure Sounds (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... On September 8, 2017
Woah! Don't get caught in the crossfire! I Roy takes on Prince Jazzbo, and luckily for us, Tubby's not taking sides, cutting mad versions and heavy dubs as the two Dee Jays trade barbs, rhymes and witty rejoinders for a battle on wax that lasted quite a few rounds! This great set by Pressure Sounds not only documents the toasting, boasting and roasting fest that the two heavyweight mic wielders laid to wax across now sought-after 45s, it showcases Striker Lee's production talents and Tubby's well known dub wizardry. For the most part, rhythms are laid down by the Aggrovators, with a couple Jo Jo Hookim produced cuts by the Revolutionaries, but it's all fantastic material, and the set has great notes giving background on the whole battle. 15 tracks in all, including "Do You Love Me?" by Johnny Clarke, "Straight To Jazzbo's Head", "Padlock", "Jazzbo Have Fe Run" and "Straight To Derrick Morgan's Head" by I Roy, "Straight To I Roy's Head" and "Gal Boy I Roy" by Prince Jazzbo, "I Roy The Chiney Commer Around" by Derrick Morgan, and "Straight To I Roy's Big Mouth" and "The Roots Of Dub" by King Tubby & The Aggrovators.

The album's heavy on covers – and also includes songs first made famous by The Isley Brothers, Natalie Cole, Luther Vandross, Jerry Butler, and others – but all done in that warmly glowing sound that's made Maysa so great from her years with Incognito onward – with a rich legacy in quality soul! As with other recent albums from the singer, the production here is nicely understated – maturing with Maysa's talents, and another great showcase for the skills of Chris "Big Dog" Davis. Titles include "Love Is A Battlefield", "Can We Talk", "Inseparable", "Because It's Really Love", "Inside Out", "The Things We Do For Love", "Mr Dream Merchant", and "Am I Dreaming". CD

✨✧ VariousI Am On The Battlefield For My Lord – Jamaican Gospel Vol 3 – Sixteen Killers From The 60s & 70s ... LP
Buked & Scorned, 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A heady serving of rare gospel work from the Jamaican scene – tracks that were recorded during the same years as rocksteady and reggae, but with a much more spiritual vibe overall! The music here often shares a lot in terms of grooves with secular Jamaican sounds – but the recording style is maybe less dark overall, with the voices dominating even more – and instrumentation stripped down somewhat, although still with some nice grooves, and occasional tight guitar and organ from time to time! Titles include "On The Battlefield" by Heavenly Dreamers, "Fire In My Soul" by L Walker, "Abraham & Isaac" by Marvetts, "River Of Jordan" by Rehoboth Echoes, "All Over God's Heaven" by Sister Alexander, "I'm Moving On" by Otis Wright, and "Hide Me Rock Of Ages" by Heavenly Twins.

✨✧ Gene Ammons & Dexter GordonChase! ... LP
Prestige, 1971. Very Good- ... $3.99
Gritty live work from twin tenor giants Gene Ammons and Dexter Gordon – recorded in an open-ended style that's a bit like some of Gordon's famous early work on the Central Avenue scene in LA, or Ammons' famous live "battles" with Sonny Stitt! The date was recorded in Chicago at the North Park Hotel – with sound that's a bit more "live" than some of the other Prestige sessions at the time – and an unusual lineup that features local players Jodie Christian and John Young on piano, Cleveland Eaton on bass, and Steve McCall on drums. The lovely Vi Redd makes a vocal appearance on the track "Lonesome Lover Blues" – and other titles include "The Chase", "Polka Dots & Moonbeams", and "The Happy Blues" – all nice and long! LP, Vinyl record album
(Purple label pressing. Cover is in nice shape.)

James Day Songs, 2017. New Copy ... $9.99
James Day has always been one heck of a collaborative fellow – but this time around, he seems to be even more so than ever – as the album's overflowing with an insane amount of guests artists – a huge lineup that includes Gordon Chambers, Tony Terry, Audrey Wheeler, Glenn Jones, Sandra St Victor, Karen Bernod, Lalah Hathaway, Trina Broussard, U-Nam, Maysa, and others – soul singers both classic and contemporary, coming together here to bring a very joyous vibe to James' music! Many numbers feature more than one singer, creating a trading of vocals that really gives the record a lot of warmth – while Day handles the production and songwriting, sometimes with help from the other artists. Titles include "No Son Of Mine", "Forgiveness", "Battlegrounds", "Stand On My Shoulders", "Who Can Tell The Heart", "It's All Divine (Boogie Back mix)", and "Speak Love". CD features two tracks not on the digital version – "Dreamland" and "We Dance (Cool Million mix)". CD

Columbia, 1994. Used ... Out Of Stock
The first album, with "Life's A Bitch", "One Love" and "It Ain't Hard To Tell" – what more do we need to say? How about beats by Primo, Pete Rock and Large Professor? Did this one get 5 mics from the Source? Didn't that count for something at the time? At any rate, despite the subsequent ups and downs of his career, and battles with Jay Z, amongst others, this album still stands as an all time high water mark for microphone technique and lyrical skills, with production to match. Also includes "NY State Of Mind", "The World Is Yours", "Halftime", "One Time 4 Your Mind", "Memory Lane" and "Represent". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing, including the printed inner sleeve! Cover has a cutout hole.)

With nice sweet keyboards by Willie Tee, and a good funky New Orleans sound that you'll be hard pressed to beat! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ 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. DVD
Also available Miss Sharon Jones (Soundtrack) (with download and bonus track) ... LP 19.99
