VariousSweet Taste Of Sin – Sensual Sampler-Ready Soul For B-Boys, B-Girls, & Soul Heads ... CD
BGP (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Sweet and smooth 70s soul – hand-picked with a freshness that should appeal to folks who found these sounds through the hip hop that these grooves laid the sonic groundwork for. The tracks on here aren't as beat or break-heavy as some of the material on other sample-driven collections – but that's fine with us, as the tracks move into a sophisticated soul range that's always a pleasure to hear, bringing together the kind of well-produced 70s tracks we love! Titles include "Sweet Taste Of Sin" by Dennis Coffey, "I'll See You In Hell First" by Phillip Mitchell, "Do It To Me Now" by Fatback, "Don't Risk Your Happiness On Foolishness" by Fantastic Four, "Killing Time" by Natural Essence, "Your Love Is My Desire" by Eramus Hall, "Baby Get Down" by Eddie McLoyd, "Set It Out" by The Detroit Emeralds, "Love Starved" by Shirley Brown, "I'm Gonna Have To Tell Her" by Isaac Hayes, "If I Had The Power" by Johnny Guitar Watson, and "I Got To Have Your Love Now" by Caesar Frazier.

✨✧ RamonesRamones (Expanded & Remastered) ... CD
Sire/Rhino, 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
As great of a rock & roll album as there's ever been! It's impossible to describe this record without sounding like a blow hard, but you really can't overstate what these four goony guys from Queens accomplished. 30-odd years of the most visceral pop music concentrated into 2 minute, 3 chord blasts of beautiful sonic catharsis – and they could barely even play. Thanks boys. Tracks include "Blitzkreig Bop", "I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend", "Beat On The Brat", "Now I Wanna Sniff Some Glue", "I Don't Wanna Around With You", "Loudmouth", and "Today Your Love", Tomorrow The World". 8 bonus tracks include original demo versions of many of the album tracks – plus never officially released outtakes from the sessions including "I Can't Be" and "I Don't Wanna Be Learned/I Don't Wanna Be Tamed". CD

Lex, 2004. Used ... Out Of Stock

Tracks include "Ghetto Pop Life", "Omega Supreme", "What You Sittin' On", "Take Care Of Business", "Yoo-Hoo", "Bush Boys" (one of the best anti-Bush regime tracks we've heard) and more. CD

✨✧ SonicsPsycho-Sonic ... CD
Big Beat (UK), 1964/1965. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Lester Bangs was right! There's just no overstating how important the sludgy, primordial ooze rock of the Sonics was to the future of rock. But if you're like us, you don't really care about the academic meaning of the arrival of the mighty, appropriately named Sonics, and you just want a good hard arse whompin' – and all 29 tracks on this singles collection do the job! It's pretty amazing what a banshee scream, an extra fuzzy guitar sound, atonal sound blasts and a vaguely r&b based approach accomplished in the mid 60s when practiced by the right madmen! Psycho-Sonic collects a ton of singles the boys cut for Etiquette Records, with extensive notes and great photos. If you're not familiar, one listen will prolly have you taking your White Stripes CDs to Disc-Go-Round. Includes "The Witch" (both the studio and a live version), "Boss Hoss", "Psycho", "Strychnine", "Cinderella", "Dirty Robber", "Keep A Knockin'", "Jenny Jenny", "Do You Love Me", "Walking The Dog", "It's Alright", "Since I Fell For You" and more. Essential!!! CD

✨✧ VariousLet The Boogie Woogie Rock & Roll – 25 Boogies, Jivers, & Jumpers Drawn From The Atlantic, Atco, & East West Vaults ... CD
Atlantic/Ace (UK), Mid 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A searing collection of 50s R&B – served up by one of the labels that was the best in the business – the then-young Atlantic Records, who helped define a whole generation with records like this! Yet the set isn't just the hits from Atlantic, as the collection's got loads of lesser-known gems from the time too – with a balance that's probably more in favor of obscure Atlantic tracks, which are then mixed in with a few better-known cuts – all for a non-stop R&B party that's brimming over with raw soul and plenty of jazzy jumpers! The package features 25 tracks in all – and a superb set list that includes the titles "Big Foot May" by Hal Paige & His Blues Boys, "Alarm Clock Boogie" by Odelle Turner, "Wine O Wine" by Willis Gatortail Jackson, "Ee Til Ya Dee" by The Tilters, "Big Mamou Daddy" by Carmen Taylor, "Uh Huh" by George Jackson, "Got The Water Boiling" by The Regals, "Miss Rip Van Winkle" by The Tibbs bRothers, "Hey Memphis" by Lavern Baker, "Rhumboogie Jive" by Frank Floorshow Culley, "My Beat Is 125th Street" by Eunice Davis, and "Bip Bop Bip" by Pretty Boy.

An amazing collection of work from Serge Gainsbourg – a set that definitely lives up to the "integrale" promise in the title, as it includes every single album he ever recorded, plus loads more singles and rare bits too – all packaged in a really lavish set! Even if you've got an album or two by Serge at home – or even more than that – there's plenty here to love, as the set's overflowing with goodness – material that runs from his early work in a mixture of jazz and Latin, to his playful 60s pop, to the kind of sexy, slinky, funky sounds he's become legendary for as the 70s moved in! The album features 16 CDs of the classic original albums – nearly all of which include bonus tracks – a CD of singles & duets (1975 to 1986), a CD of television and radio recordings (1957 to 1974), a CD of songs for films, and a CD of instrumental film music – plus large hardcover-style book, with 48 pages of notes and images to hold the whole thing together! The original albums include Du Chant A La Une, No 2, L'Etonnant Serge Gainsbourg, No 4, Confidentiel, Gainsbourg Percussions, Initials BB, Jane Birkin E Serge Gainsbourg, Histoire De Melody Nelson, Vu De L'Exterieur, Rock Around The Bunker, L'Homme A Tete De Chou, Aux Armes Et Caetera, Mauvaises Nouvelles Des Etoiles, Love On The Beat, and You're Under Arrest.

Sweet funky, funky reggae from the deep vaults of Trojan!

VariousBeat From Badsville Vol 3 – Trash Classics from Lux & Ivy's Vinyl Mountain ... CD
Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/1960s. New Copy ... $15.99

The set features different themes for each of the four sides of the record – "Life's A Scream", songs with screaming; jungle-themed tunes in "Welcome To The Jungle"; fantastic femmes in "Wild & Wilder Boppin Girls", and a range of weird stuff in "Crazy Guys, Food, Prison, & A Guide To The Female Persuasion".

✨✧ BeatlesPlease Please Me ... CD
Apple, 1963. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An overstuffed album of early greatness – served up with a classic image of the Fab Four on the cover! The tunes are a mix of Lennon/McCartney originals and American soul and rock numbers that are reinterpreted wonderfully by the group – in ways that perfectly show why, unlike most of their contemporaries, The Beatles weren't just trying for slavish imitation of American authenticity – and instead were already taking off with new ideas inspired by the music! Titles include "Please Please Me", "Love Me Do", "Misery", "Anna", "I Saw Her Standing There", "Boys", "Baby IT's You", "Do You Want To Know A Secret", "Twist & Shout", "A Taste Of Honey", and "Chains".

✨✧ House Of PainHouse Of Pain ... CD
Tommy Boy, 1992. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The record that finally pushed so many blue-eyed doubters into the embrace of hip hop – and one of the few of its type that could deliver the same sort of punch as the best of the underground! In later years, the album's come to be associated more with fratboys than the group probably would have liked – but there's a raw, urgent power here that's hard to deny – especially in the skittish production that really draws on the nervous energy of the trio! DJ Lethal and Muggs' bouncing, head-nodding beats keep things moving with Everlast's rhymes standing up pretty well over the years – and titles include the anthemic "Jump Around", plus "House Of Pain Anthem", 'Come And Get Some Of This", "All My Love", "Put On Your Sh!t Kickers", "Shamrocks And Shenanigans", "Guess Who's Back", "Life Goes On", and "One For The Road".

✨✧ VariousGirls With Guitars – All-Girl Bands, Axe-Backed Babes, & The Like ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Girls with guitars – a very dangerous combination, and one that's served up nicely by this CD! The package brings together obscure girl rock tracks from the 60s – most of them in a rough garagey mode that stands as a very nice counterpoint to the sweeter girl group sound that's usually associated with the period. The tracks on the set are from a variety of indie labels, and include loads of work by groups we'd never heard of before, but who really sound great – most likely languished in obscurity due to the fact that their sound was years ahead of its time. The set includes great notes, and 24 tracks that include "Rock City" by Kathy Lynn & The Playboys, "My Baby" by the Girls, "I'd Rather Fight Than Switch" by The Tomboys, "Get Away From Me" by The Angels, "Only Seventeen" by The Beatle-ettes, "Do The Dog" by Sugar & The Spices, "They Are The Lonely" by Pat Powdrill & The Powerdrills, "Heart" by The 2 of Clubs, "Hully Gully Guitar" by The Percells, "Skinny Vinnie" by Goldie & The Gingerbreads, and "Boy What'll You Do Then" by Denise & Company.

✨✧ Eugene McDanielsHeadless Heroes Of The Apocalypse ... CD
Atlantic (UK), 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A monster album that's gone on to influence a generation – but which was barely recognized at the time! Singer Eugene McDaniels had scored big with some pop hits in the 60s under the name Gene McDaniels – but here, he steps out in a righteous batch of offbeat funk tunes – filled with politics, offbeat rhythms, and some very weird instrumentation. The whole thing's awash in moody, jazzy changes – of the style that showed up often in samples by Tribe Called Quest, Beastie Boys, and other artists who drew keen inspiration from this record. Titles include the massive "Jagger the Dagger" – plus "The Lord Is Back", "Lovin Man", "Headless Heroes", "Freedom Death Dance", and "Supermarket Blues". CD

✨✧ Kenny DorhamBlues In Bebop ... CD
Savoy, Late 40s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Some of the earliest recorded work from trumpeter Kenny Dorham – presented here in an overstuffed set that brings together most of his appearances on the Savoy label! The core standout tunes here are 10 numbers recorded in 1946 by The Bebop Boys – a combo that featured Dorham, Sonny Stitt, and Bud Powell coming together on tight, short, very upbeat bop material that ranked with some of the best early 78s of the genre. Titles by this group include "Seven Up", "Bebop In Pastel", "Serenade To A Square", "Fools Fancy", and "Bombay". Other material on the CD includes a solo by Kenny on "The Jitney Man" by Billy Eckstine, plus 3 tracks with the Milt Jackson Sextet from 1949 – including "Conglomeration", "Bruz", and "Roll Em Bags". Kenny also plays on three 1949 recordings with Charlie Parker – "Barbados", "Scrapple From The Apple", and "Bebop" – as well as four 1956 numbers with Cecil Payne – including "Grooving High", "Man Of Moods", and "Saucer Eyes".
