Eugene ChadbourneLost Eddie Chatterbox Sessions ... CD
No Prestige/Corbett vs. Dempsey, 1977. New Copy ... $12.99
Magnificent early work from Eugene Chadbourne – a set that was recorded on Christmas Day, 1977 – and only issued a decade later on cassette – but sounds that are every bit as mindblowing as the material on Chadbourne's first few albums! The music here is heavy on compositions from Thelonious Monk – and the set also features Charlie Parker, John Coltrane, and Ornette Coleman tunes too – all reworked by Chadbourne with this incredible acoustic guitar style – very freewheeling, but still tied to the roots of jazz through a sense of melody – in ways that are maybe even more illustrative of his role in the scene than some of his other work. At one level, there's an acoustic guitar craft here that stretches back to the early blues recordings, but through a strong sense of avant freedom – ala Captain Beefheart – but Eugene's care with the tunes, mixed with his expressive phrasing, also put him in a space that's somewhere between the world of Derek Bailey and Fred Frith, and that of jazzman Barney Kessel, whose name he's holding in the poster on the cover. Titles include "5th Of Beethoven", "Reflections", "Off Minor", "San Francisco", "Hackensack", "Dewey Square", "Central Park West", "Brilliant Corners", and "Light Blue". Also includes a number of Chadbourne originals – and unissued tracks as well! CD

Pierre HenryXe Symphonie Remix (Remixe Sa Dixieme Symphony) ... CD
Decca, 1998. New Copy ... $10.99 11.99
The great , oft-remixed French composer turns the tables – and offers up a remix of his own work, the 10th Symphony of Beethoven, originally composed in 1979! The end result is a beautiful mix of sounds and electronics, underpinned by slowly unraveling symphonic passages – in a style that's much truer to Henry's original intents than any of the kiddie remix projects. Above all, the work clearly retains Henry's profound sense of humor – especially on passages like "Fantasie Flipper" and "Beethoven Seul". A masterwork that pushes the knob-addled remix mania to the next level! Other titles include "Marche Dans Le Temps", "Pas Perdus", "Presto", "Enfants", "Guerre", "Aube", "1/2 Finale" and "Finale".

Dave Liebman & Richie BeirachEternal Voices ... CD
Jazz Line (Germany), 2019. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99
An unusual setting for this long-running jazz partnership – a double-length record that has the saxes of Dave Liebman and the piano of Richie Beirach improvising on a number of themes borrowed from classical music – compositions by Bach, Beethoven, Bartok, and others – all really transformed by the sensitive genius of the pair! The album's not one of those slavish readings of classical compositions by a jazz musicians – and, if anything, the open, improvised quality of the music really deviates a lot from the scores – using them more for inspiration, and as a way to hit some of the more sensitive qualities of both musicians, especially Liebman. Dave plays soprano, tenor, and c-flute – and the entire second half of the album is based on Bartok string quartets. CD

RattlesTwist Time In Hamburg (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Oldays (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $13.99
Rock-solid beat group material from the Hamburg scene – played by just the kind of combo who were likely contemporaries of The Beatles during their early years working in Germany! Most songs are covers of American rock and R&B numbers – but they're done in a frantic, gritty sort of vibe – often with guitars riffing super-fast with plenty of twang, and a nice sense of harmony in the vocals and overall instrumentation. Titles include "Brown Eyed Handsome Man", "Bye Bye Johnny", "Money", "Then She Kissed Me", "Roll Over Beethoven", "Putty Your Hand", and "I'm Talkin About You". CD features 14 more bonus tracks – including "Hello", "Mashed Potatoes", "Go To Him", "The Stomp", "Baby That Is Rock & Roll", "Twist & Shout", and "Hippy Hippy Shake". CD
(Part of the Oldays Special Treasures series!)

VariousKubrick's Music – Selections From The Films Of Stanley Kubrick (4CD set) ... CD
El (UK), Late 50s/1960s/1970s/1980s/1990s. New Copy 4 CDs ... $22.99
A huge set of music – one that's maybe a bit different than you might expect! Right from the start, Stanley Kubrick was a groundbreaking director – one who had a great sense of music on the screen – sometimes from film scores that he'd commission for his movies, sometimes from previous recordings that were used in really effective ways in a scene! This package focuses strongly on that second half of the Kubrick legacy – and includes selections by a huge amount of talents – including Ralph Vaughan Williams, John Coltrane, Sergei Prokofiev, Ludwig Van Beethoven, Johan Strauss, Toots Thielemans, Vera Lynn, Oscar Peterson, Bela Bartok, and others – as used in films that include Dr Strangelove, 2001 A Space Oddysey, Clockwork Orange, Barry Lyndon, The Shining, and Eyes Wide Shut. The set also features film scores from Spartacus by Alex North and Lolita by Nelson Riddle – and the whole thing comes in a box set with a booklet – featuring 69 tracks in all, with a lot of musical surprises!

✨✧ RoutersLet's Go/Play 1963's Great Instrumental Hits/Charge/Chuck Berry Songbook ... CD
Warner/BGO (UK), Early 60s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Four classic albums from The Routers – one of those unusual 60s groups who never really existed as a real band – but whose name was used to sell some very groovy records at the time! The Routers came from the same production talents who handled The Markettes – who also made some sweet instrumental albums for Warner Brothers at the time – and like that "group", the real music here is mostly played by the cream of LA's session musicians – including Wrecking Crew heavyweights like drummer Hal Blaine, and tenor sax legend Plas Johnson. All tunes are instrumental – and some follow a surf rock mode, while others focus on a particularly strong mode that made The Routers soar – kind of a jaunty, chanting style that was particularly great for big crowds at a live event. As you might guess from the album titles here, some of the records are heavy on Router-ized covers, while others feature original material – and titles include "Let's Go", "Sting Ray", "Martian Hop", "Half Time", "Bucket Seats", "Make It Snappy", "Mashy", "Charge", "Illinois Loyalty", "Ramblin Wreck", "School Days", "Sou'wester", "Pep Rally", "Roll Over Beethoven", and "Bye By Johnny". 48 tracks in all – and complete notes on the "group"!
