Piero PiccioniFumo Di Londra (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Bella Casa (UK), 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
One of the hippest Italian soundtracks of the 60s – and a motherlode of tracks by the great Piero Piccioni! The soundtrack is the source of the oft-compiled "Mr Dante Fontana", a nutty groover about the mod fashion scene in Italy – and it also features the famous tracks "Richmond Bridge" and "You Never Told Me" – both well-remembered tracks that have directed a number of people to discover Italian soundtrack gems over the years. Most of the music is by Piccioni and the wonderful vocal group I Cantori Moderni – but the set also features some work by Lydia Mac Donald, who's a very groovy singer. LP features the original 1966 album – with the tracks "Mr Dante Fontana", "Drag Beat", "You Never Told Me", "Babylon I'm Comin", "Richmond Bridge", "If Dreams Come True", and "This Is Life" – and also features 6 more bonus tracks in mono!

Piero PiccioniSette Cadaveri Per Scotland Yard (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Beat/Sub Ost (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
A rare vinyl version of this classic Italian horror soundtrack! Piero Piccioni did the soundtrack for Seven Murders For Scotland Yard – in a style that mixes more dramatic orchestrations with a few great mod touches on organ, flute, and percussion – which step out nicely on the groovier tracks, and bring in a nice note of action and surprise to a score that's mostly tense and poised for danger! These few light bits really offset things nicely – and create an unsettling feel in a work that's pretty darn dark overall, and which shows some of the most somber qualities we've ever heard in Piccioni's music. Titles include "Seven Murders", "Unknown Maniac", "Reminding The Ripper", "Suspecting", "Inspector Campbell", and "Professor Christie" LP, Vinyl record album

Bu PleasantMs Bu ... LP
Muse, 1973. Near Mint- ... $11.99
This is the only album we've ever seen by this obscure east coast female organist, and it's somewhere between work by Trudy Pitts and Shirley Scott, with a little bit of the hip twist that was going down in New Jersey at the time of the recording. Bu sings a bit, but it's mostly organ grooves, and Harold Vick sits in playing some nice tenor. Cuts include a long groovin' version of "Summertime", plus "Opus for O.P.", "Bells for Bu", and "Melody for Bu". LP, Vinyl record album

Elvis PresleyBoy From Tupelo – The Complete 1953 to 1955 Recordings (3CD set) ... CD
RCA/Legacy, Early/Mid 50s. New Copy 3CD ... $36.99 39.89
A treasure trove of early Elvis recordings – a set the goes deeper into the nascent, pre-pop culture mania, and right into the heart and soul of "A Boy From Tupelo" who really had the voice and charisma of a king – mania, hype and a half century of merchandising be damned! Includes every known studio take, radio recording and live performance available from that trailblazing 3-year period – with the earliest the earliest Memphis Recording Service acetates and the Sun and RCA studio masters on Disc 1, complete Sun Studio sessions on Disc 2, and live and radio performances on Disc 3. 85 tracks on 3CDs – in a nice little box set, with a 130-page book that's worth the price alone! Tracks include "My Happiness", It Wouldn't Be the Same (Without You)", "Harbor Lights", ""That's All Right", "I'm Left, You're Right, She's Gone", "Fool, Fool, Fool", "Good Rockin' Tonight", "Baby Let's Play House", "Blue Moon Of Kentucky", "Maybellene", "I Got A Woman", "Hearts Of Stone", "Mystery Train", and many, many more!

Procol HarumProcol Harum (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Deram/West Side (UK), 1967. Used ... $14.99
The amazing first album from Procol Harum – a group with a sound that's still unlike anyone else we can think of – even though they were a key part of the London scene of the 60s! The group are steeped in all of the blues, soul, and jazz elements that influenced so many other British acts of the period – but they have this way of presenting the music that brings a whole new sort of drama to the music – this flair that never overwhelms, and instead embellishes the music in this really special way – so that the tunes have this brilliance that's kept them fresh for many decades to follow! Lead singer Gary Brooker is a key part of the record's magic – a very distinctive singer – and a young Robin Trower contributes plenty on guitar, as does Matthew Fisher on Hammond. But there's also some arrangements that really set the whole thing in an unusual direction – and which make the record way more than just another bluesy rock set from the time. Hard to argue with the baroque brilliance of "She Wandered Through The Garden Fence", "A Christmas Camel", "Salad Days", "Repent Walpurgis", and "Conquistador" CD

✨✧ PSIHorizonte ... CD
Bellaphon/GAD (Poland), 1977. New Copy ... $16.99
Very cool work from Psi – a hip 70s German group who were partly fusion, partly prog – in that special sort of blend shared by a rare few contemporaries – such as Embryo, Perigeo, or Zzebra! As with all three of those groups, the musicians here are clearly schooled in jazz, but also really want to open up in some of the freedoms explored by the long-haired younger generation – not in an avant way, but in a style that mixes some funky currents in the rhythms with more freewheeling solos and the occasional jamming passage – served up by a quintet lineup that includes loads of wonderful keyboards, plus tenor, guitar, bass, drums, and percussion! There's no vocals at all on the record – no need, as the instruments speak volumes – and titles include "Elektrische Kall Heinzje", "Horizonte", "Under Der Schurze Liegt Die Wurze", and "Bettgerausche".

Tito PuenteEl Rey ... LP
Picante/Concord, 1984. Near Mint- ... $11.99
80s work from Tito – but very nicely grooving, with a small combo that has a nice jazzy finish, and lots of strong west coast Latin work from the likes of players like Francisco Aguabella, Jorge Dalto, Jose Madera, and Johnny Rodriguez. The set was recorded live in SF – and titles include a great Latin reading of Coltrane's "Equinox", a remake of "Oye Como Va", and the tracks "Rainfall", "Giant Steps", "El Rey Del Timbal", and "Linda Chicana".

✨✧ Queen YahnaAin't It Time (voc, inst) ... 7-inch
P&P, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $6.99 7.98
A real club stormer! Queen Yahna has a deep rich voice, in the tradition of the best Miami soul divas – and it's nicely situated in a classic club groove, augmented by congas and cowbells, with great production by Capraquarius! The vocal chorus is soulful and catchy – and the instrumental flip has a nice spare breakdown, with some great Fender Rhodes over the top. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Wayne RaneySongs Of The Hills ... LP
King, Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy (reissue)... $6.99 9.98
Not the usual sounds you might expect from postwar country music – as Wayne Raney's an unusual star from the King Records roster – one who could play harmonica as well as sing, and who definitely brought a strong boogie current to his hillbilly material! The album's a heavyweight collection of Raney's early work for King – classic singles, pulled together into a full album that's got a lot more bite than you might expect from the domestic image on the cover! Titles include "Lost John Boogie", "Pardon My Whiskers", "The Roosters Are Crowing", "We Love To Live", "My Annabelle Lee", "I Done & Sold My Soul", "Gone With The Wind This Morning", and "Catfish Baby".

Shorty RogersSweetheart Of Sigmund Freud ... CD
Giant Steps/Global Warming (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. Used 2 CDs ... $9.99
A massive overview of the early years of the career of trumpeter Shorty Rogers – a 2CD set that brings together performances by Shorty in other groups (Woody Herman, Red Norvo, Stan Kenton, Lighthouse All Stars), plus some of Rogers' seminal early 50s sides as a leader! The package is a great way to look at Shorty in these "bubbling under" years – the time when he was making bold strides as a soloist in other artists' groups, then first forging the Giants sound that became one of the most popular in 50s jazz. Titles include "Bop" by Red Norvo, "Igor" and "Lemon Drop" with Woody Herman, "Short Wave" with Maynard Ferguson, "Jolly Rogers" and "Viva Prado" with Stan Kenton, "Punkin" with Louis Bellson, "What's New" with Lighthouse All Stars, and "Chino", "Coop De Graas", "Morpo", "Diablo's Dance", "Pesky Serpent", "Indian Club", "Powder Puff", "Didi", and "Four Mothers" all issued under Shorty's name.

✨✧ Nino RotaToby Dammit ... LP
Bella Casa (UK), 1967. New Copy ... $14.99 28.99
An overlooked bit of genius from Federico Fellini – a film that stars Terence Stamp as a Shakespearean actor run amuck – set to wonderful sounds here by the great Nino Rota! Rota revives some of his most charming styles from early 60s Fellini classics like La Dolce Vita or 8 1/2 – that bouncy, thematic approach that often uses plenty of jazz, and which has this wonderful way of mixing whimsy and darkness – at a level that really keeps things interesting throughout! Instrumentation includes some especially great woodwinds, plus a nice bit of organ too. LP features loads of tracks – including a few "Demon Child" variations, a Ray Charles version of "Ruby", and even an organ alternate too! LP, Vinyl record album

John SangsterAhead Of Hair ... LP
Festival/Blank (Australia), 1969. Sealed (reissue)... $14.99
One of the grooviest takes on the music of Galt MacDermot you'll ever hope to hear – as Australian percussionist John Sangster turns in some wonderful rhythm-heavy versions of the tunes from Hair – and also adds in a few sweet numbers of his own! Sangster also wrote a few new tracks, and the whole thing works as a nice suite that moves between percussive stuff and funky moments. The main mode is jazz, but there's lots of other wild touches in the mix too – as Sangster plays vibes, theremin, congs, claves, guiro, kalimba, tubular bells, marimba, Indian bells, and lots more instruments – alongside organ from the great Col Nolan, plus Bob McIvor on trombone, Lennie Hutchinson on bass, and Derek Fairbrass on drums. Ben Turpin adds in a bit of "moon voice" – which is as cool as it sounds – and titles include "Frank Mills", "Turn On", "Walking In Space", "Drop Out", "Three Five Zero Zero", "Good Morning Sunshine", "Let The Sunshine In", "What A Piece Of Work Is Man", "Hashish", "Aquarius", and "Hare Krishna".

Boz ScaggsMoments (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1970. Used ... $19.99
If you think you know Boz Scaggs, think again – because this early Columbia album features a whole different sound! The Scaggs here is a really loose and soulful one – as Boz steps out of the freewheeling late 60s Bay Area scene with a really wonderful take on blue-eyed soul – an approach that's clearly informed by the sound of The Rascals and some of the New York scene, but which also has some tasty California touches that really transform the mood. Boz vocals are pure and straightforward – and the instrumentation on the set has a tight, but laidback sort of feel – no surprise, as Boz' band of the time was really great. There's a real Free Soul sort of feel to the record – and tracks include "Moments", "Downright Women", "Painted Bells", "Alone Alone", "Near You", "We Were Always Sweethearts", "Can I Make It Last", and "We Been Away".

Marlena ShawTake A Bite ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $13.99
A nice little album that continues Marlena's 70s experiments in updating her jazzy vocal style to a sweet modern soul groove. As always, Marlena shows that she can handle a wide range of styles – from uptempo dancefloor material to more tender ballads, sparkling in a way that few other singers of her time could manage. Arrangements are by Bobby Bryant and Harold Wheeler – and the album's got a full-on approach that's a bit like some of Patti Labelle's work from the time. Titles include "Touch Me In the Morning", "I'll Be Your Friend", "Haven't We Been In Love Before?", and a strange reading of "It Was A Very Good Year". CD

Al SmithMidnight Special ... LP
Prestige/Bluesville, Early 60s. Very Good ... $14.99
The second Prestige album from Al Smith – a great little singer with a sublime blend of blues, jazz, and soul! Smith really came on strong at the start of his career, but then dropped out of sight pretty quickly after this one – and we're really not sure why, given what a great little record it is! The style here is even looser and more laidback than the first – with a fair bit of soul-jazz styled instrumentation, played in a late night mellow mode by a small combo that includes Robert Banks on organ, King Curtis on tenor, and Jimmy Lee on guitar. A few tracks are nicely longish, and really loosen things up a lot – allowing Smith to hit modes that few other singers of the time were doing. Titles include "I Can't Make It By Myself", "I've Been Mistreated", "You're A Sweetheart", "The Bells", "Ride On Midnight Special", and the hard-rocking "Don't Worry Bout Me". LP, Vinyl record album
