Liquid LiquidLiquid Liquid EP ... 12-inch
99 Records/Superior Viaduct, Early 80s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $13.99
A groundbreaking little record – and one that's hardly ever been matched again! Liquid Liquid sprang onto the scene with this amazing debut EP for 99 Records – a set that's got a wicked blend of funky drums, post-punk darkness, and this cool criss-crossing of modes that perfectly sums up the genius of the New York scene at the time! The record features lots of percussion throughout – drums, roto toms, congas, and plenty more – mixed with these brooding basslines that remind us of Jah Wobble at his best, and echoey production that almost feels like an American take on Martin Hannett at his best – especially at those moments when weird, eerie vocals drift through the instrumentation, barely at the edge of hearing. Titles include the classic "Bellhead" – plus "Groupmegroup", "Rubbermiro", "Lub Dupe", and "New Walk". 12-inch, Vinyl record

Henry LowtherChild Song (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Deram (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $24.99
One of the few albums cut as a leader by trumpeter Henry Lowther – a great player on the British scene of the end of the 60s, but one who mostly labored in the service of other groups at the time! Lowther emerges here as an extremely visionary leader – one with a scope of expression and embellishment to match the work of some of his Deram labelmates at the time – especially Mike Westbrook and John Surman. For the album, Lowther plays both trumpet and violin – working in a group that includes tenor, bass clarinet, percussion, and some sparing, but beautiful use of electric piano – just enough to tipple along with the tunes in a lyrical way, and never too much to over-electrify things past the gentler notes of the acoustic instruments. The keyboardist for the set is the lesser-known Mike McNaught, and his work on the session is really wonderful – and the whole album has a gentle approach that's really great, and proof of the depth that was going on in the younger side of the British scene of the time. Titles include "Puppet Song", "Between", "Trav'lling Song", and "Plaything". CD

✨✧ Dave Mackay with Vicky HamiltonHands ... LP
Discovery, 1968/1982. Very Good+ ... $12.99
A split LP that offers some key tracks from the classic Dave Mackay & Vicky Hamilton album on Impulse from 1968, plus later piano trio recordings by Dave from 1982! Dave & Vicky are represented here by the first 4 tracks on the record – "Blues For Hari", "Here", Now", and "3 For 5" – and on these tunes, the pair are sort of like a hip version of Jackie & Roy – usually singing together on their tracks, with a mixed male/female vocal approach that sounds totally great – and which really fits the breezy mood of the tunes on the set! Dave himself plays Fender Rhodes and piano – along with an odd little combo that includes flute and tenor played by Ira Schulman, percussion by Francisco Aguabella, and guest sitar by by Ray Neapolitan. Other tracks on the album are all from 1982, and feature Dave in warmer trio context with Andy Simpkins on bass and Joey Baron on drums. Titles include "Hands", "The Andyman Suite", and "Triste".

ManhattansI Kinda Miss You – The Anthology – Columbia Records 1973 to 1987 ... CD
Columbia/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1970s/1980s. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99
Beautiful harmony soul from The Manhattans! This excellent 2CD set pulls together a bunch of the greatest songs they recorded for Columbia in the 70s & 80s, with all of their classic singles – hits, comparably overlooked gems, and B-sides alike – plus key album tracks from a nearly 15 year run. Already group soul veterans by the time they began recording for Columbia, The Manhattans are one of those rare groups who managed to get better and better over the years, really hitting their peak in the 70s and riding high for years to come, well into the 1980s! Disc 1 features a perfectly chosen selection of material from the prime years of the 70s, including "There's No Me Without You", "You'd Better Believe It", "Wish That You Were Mine", "Summertime In The City", "Hurt", "Gypsy Man", "Love Talk", "Am I Losing You", "Here Comes The Hurt Again" and many more. Disc 2 focuses on material from their surprisingly wonderful 80s years – carrying classic soul ballad tradition pretty deep into the new decade – a really remarkable achievement given the rapidly changing sounds and styles of that decade! Titles include "Shining Star", "Girl Of My Dream", "Just One Moment Away", "Crazy", "Forever By Your Side", "Where Did We Go Wrong?" with Regina Belle, "All I Need", "Neither One Of Us (Wants To Be The First To Say Goodbye)" and more. 35 tracks on 2CDs!

Ray ManzarekGolden Scarab ... LP
Mercury, 1974. Very Good ... $6.99
Really adventurous early solo work from Ray Manzarek – bursting with creativity and a world of ideas on The Golden Scarab! Lots of oddball instrumentation, particularly in the percussion – with bongo, wood block, congtas, tuned cowbell, whistles, cabassa and quica – plus Ray working with an array of keys – organ, piano and synths. There's bits of jazz rock and influences from Latin grooves and more otherworldly wierdness, but they still find an accessible groove throughout. Includes "He Can't Play Today", "Solar Boat", "Downbound Train", "The Golden Scarab", "The Purpose Of Existence Is?", "The Moorish Idol", "Oh Thou Nectar Filled Form, Or A Little Fart".

Bob Marley & The WailersBob Marley & The Wailers – Live ... CD
Island/Tuff Gong, 1975. Used ... $1.99
A great global showcase for the growing power of Bob Marley – an excellent live set recorded in London in 1975, and a date that shows Bob and The Wailers working with the crowd in this really universal spirit! The group's almost got a funkier current here than on some of their studio record – and their sharp edges are warmed up by female backing vocals which seem almost to act as a bridge between Marley's lead, and the very enthusiastic spirit of the crowd! The whole thing's great – and titles include totally burning versions of "Trenchtown Rock", "Burnin & Lootin", "Them Belly Full", "Lively Up Yourself", "No Woman, No Cry", "I Shot The Sheriff", and "Get Up Stand Up". This reissue also includes "Kinky Reggae" as a bonus track. CD

Harvey MasonEarth Mover (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Arista/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1976. New Copy ... $4.99 13.99
Legendary drummer Harvey Mason in sweet jazz funk groove at Arista – a way stronger record than we remembered! Harvey played on some of our favorite jazz funk records of all time – including the massive Gears LP by Johnny Hammond among so many other great albums – and on his on 70s work for Arista, he explored jazz funk and soul instrumentals, with an expansive approach. He was an integral piece of the pie on so many completely essential records by other artists, that it's far too easy to overlook the considerable strengths of the records he headlined, and this is surely of on one of those! Players include Lee Ritenour & Ray Parker on guitars, the Sea Wind Horns of Bruce Fowler, Sally and Kenny Mason, Greg Pillinganes and Paul Smith on pianos and organs, Jan Hammer on Mini Moog and others. Cuts include "Sweet Mercy", "Bertha Baptist", "First Summer" (with Harvey Mason on vibes, bells and chimes), "No Lands Man", "Sho Nuff Groove", "The Mase", "When I'm With You (Live Version)" and "KY And The Curb". This expanded edition from Soulmusic.com includes 2 bonus tracks: "KY And The Curb (US Single)" and "The Mase (UK Single)". CD

MED, Blu & MadlibBad Neighbor ... CD

Tripped out hip hop from the super team of Madlib, fellow Stones Throw veteran MED and underground hero Blu – with an impressive guest roster that includes MF Doom, Aloe Blacc, Hodgy Beats, Oh No, Mayer Hawthorne, Dam-Funk, Jimetta Rose, Phonte, Frank Nitt and others! Madlib is on the beats for every track, showing his range with a variety of moods here, tailered to the vocalists from track-to-track – from psychedelic boom bap behind Hodgy Beats, to bubbling boogie funk for Dam-Funk, bass heavy minimalism for Nitty, neo hip hop soul from Phonte & Likewise, and beyond. Strong work from a top notch ensemble! Titles include "Serving", "Drive In", "Get Money", "Streets", "The Stroll","Belly Full", "The Buzz", "Birds", "Knock Knock", "Burgundy Whip" and more. 15 tracks in all. CD

Jerzy MilianRivalen – Ballet Music 1967 to 1974 ... CD
Polskie Nagrania/GAD (Poland), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $9.99
Some of the most complicated sounds we've ever heard from Polish jazz legend Jerzy Milian – and that's saying a lot, given his important modern jazz recordings of the 60s! The work here is all from very special projects – dubbed as "ballet music" in the title, but really far more than that – as these are hardly the kind of sprightly tunes designed to inspired dancers in tight costumes – and which instead work much more like these sophisticated compositions for larger ensembles – blending Milian's jazz roots with new ideas in 20th Century music! All of the pieces are quite long – two were scored for TV films, one more for a ballet stage show, and one more is an unused (but recorded) composition for dance – and all of them feature fuller orchestrations, with some of Milian's vibes – and solos from musicians who include Ernst Ludwig Petrowsky on alto, Joachim Graswurm on flugelhorn, and Zdzislaw Nowak on alto. Titles include "Tempus Jazz 67", "Tema Con Variazioni", "Bellet For Saxes", and "Rivalen". CD

✨✧ Roscoe MitchellDuets With Tyshawn Shorey & Special Guest Hugh Ragin ... CD
Wide Hive, 2013. New Copy ... $9.99 14.99
Very spare sounds from Roscoe Mitchell and drummer Tyshawn Sorey, but still very sharp-edged too – and in a way, a mix of deeper thoughts and spontaneous energy that reminds us a lot of some of the more "out there" moments of the Art Ensemble back in the 70s! Roscoe's reeds have those complex qualities that we've heard in recent compositional work – but the overall approach is a bit looser, too – and clearly dictated by the range of percussion added by drummer Tyshawn Sorey. Trumpeter Hugh Ragin blows a fair bit on the record too – adding in sounds that shift from textural to musical – and overall, it may well be his tracks that we like the best. Titles include "The Horn", "Bells In The Air", "Out There", "A Cactus & A Rose", "Meadows", "A Game Of Catch", "Waves", and "Windows With A View". CD

Phil Moore & The Afro Latin SoultetAfro Brazil Oba! ... LP
Tower, Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A very unique little record – and one with a sublime blend of Latin, soul, and vocal styles! The record's a fair bit more sophisticated than most other efforts like this from the 60s – thanks to a strong batch of talents that includes Gil Fuller on arrangements, Phil Moore III on piano, Leni Groves on vocals – and a host of small combo players who include Joe Pass on guitar, Hadley Caliman on tenor and flute, and Francisco Aquabella on percussion! There's a warmly soulful west coast jazz sound here that's perhaps the strongest aspect of the record – a style that steps off nicely from the hipper side of LA, but throws in a few Latin influences – making for a really great sound that's totally fresh, and which really makes this record stand out from the pack! Titles include a great version of "What Is Wrong With Groovin", plus "Midnight Blue", "Batucada", "I Want Your Kiss", "Lavender Lady", and "The 8th Day". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ennio MorriconeGiornata Nera Per L'Ariete (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Carosello/Spettro (Italy), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $29.99
Dark and moody work from Ennio Morricone – scored for a film that's also known as Evil Fingers or The Fifth Cord, a 1971 crime thriller directed by Luigi Bazzoni – with a sound that's as spooky as you might guess from the cover! The music is very edgy – with lots of strings drawn the wrong way across the bow of a violin, and plenty of isolated instruments creating weird, turgid sounds that are more than a bit unsettling – and the amazing Edda Dell'Orso sings wordlessly on a few key numbers, mostly with a thin, fragile sound that's somewhat different than her other work – with almost a Rosemary's Baby sort of feel! Titles include "La Voce Bella", "Voce", "Resa", "Trafelato", "Ripresa", "Gironata Nera", "Voce Seconda", and "Punte D'Ago". LP, Vinyl record album
(Hand numbered limited edition of 500 – with bonus poster!)
