Archie Bell & The DrellsThere's Gonna Be A Showdown ... LP
Atlantic, 1969. Very Good ... $9.99
A stormer from Archie Bell & The Drells – one of our favorite soul albums ever, and a masterpiece of mid-tempo soul! Archie Bell & The Drells sound amazing here – light years from the rougher funk of their earlier years, yet still with a groove that's undeniable – an incredible meeting of soul music scenes handled by the young Gamble & Huff team – who not only produce most of the record, but also wrote most of the tracks on the set! The groove is lightly lilting, and totally on the money – a sound that's incredible, and hard to describe in words – but which really grabs us from the get-go. All tracks are great, and totally fresh – and tunes include "I Love My Baby", "Houston Texas", "Showdown", "My Balloon's Going Up", "Giving Up Dancing", "Girl You're Too Young", and "Green Power".

Decca, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $29.99
The great studio guitarist Vincent Bell lays down a set of groovy poppy sitar cuts, with a sound that's part Indian pop, part easy groove – and all wild 60s! The album features the Coral Electric Sitar, plus some classic Indian Sitar – and includes tracks like "More", "Quiet Village", and "Eleanor Rigby", played with a large groovy group, with sitar solos out front.

✨✧ Archie Bell & The DrellsDance Your Troubles Away ... LP
TSOP, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Although Archie Bell & The Drells had recorded earlier with Gamble & Huff on Atlantic, this is their first album for the team's own label – and it's a killer! In a way, Archie and group were sort of responsible for getting Gamble & Huff their own famous imprint in the first place – because their work with the team on Atlantic yielded some instant hits that really pointed the way towards the hit Gamble & Huff style of the 70s, and that sound is brought up-to-date nicely on this LP. The record really retains the strong vocal sound of earlier years – and has some of the best harmonies the band ever recorded, very much in the mode of The O'Jays or Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes. McFadden & Whitehead and Bunny Sigler wrote most of the material, backing is by the Instant Funk group, and the Gamble & Huff team handled production on all cuts. Titles include "Let's Groove", "I Won't Leave You Honey, Never", "Let's Groove", "The Soul City Walk", "Dance Your Troubles Away", and "I Love You (But You Don't Even Know It)".

✨✧ Aaron BellAfter The Party's Over ... LP
RCA, 1958. Used ... Out Of Stock
An obscure 50s session from bassist Aaron Bell – one of the player's few dates as a leader, cut at a time when he was working in Duke Ellington's group of the decade! As with some of Duke's other bassists, Bell's got a strongly pronounced tone – one that came through great in big group setting, and which really shines even more here – working in a mostly piano trio setting, and coming across with a good sense of bounce and soul. The album features Bell in a few different groups – with players who include Hank Jones or Charlie Bateman on piano, Ed Thigpen or Elvin Jones on drums, and a bit of extra trombone from Tyree Glenn. Bell even plays a bit of added tuba on a few tunes – using the instrument in a way that's not too different from his bass – and titles include "After The Party Blues", "Cool", "Party Blues", "Kumquat", "All The Way", "Love Nest", and a 2-part version of "Satin Doll".

✨✧ Solomon BurkeProud Mary ... LP
Bell, 1969. Very Good ... $19.99
Solomon Burke may be most famously known for his early recordings for Atlantic Records – but he still sounds pretty darn great on this set, recorded at Fame Studios in 1969, and with a rootsier feel than before! Solomon himself handled the arrangements, and co-produced with Tamiko Jones – and the instrumentation is quite lean and very stripped-down – drums from Roger Hawkins, guitar from Jimmy Johnson and Eddie Hinton, and keyboards from Barry Beckett – all burning down at the bottom range of the Muscle Shoals spectrum! Titles include a surprisingly great remake of "Proud Mary", plus "These Arms Of Mine", "I Can't Stop", "What Am I Living For", "Uptight Good Woman", "Don't Wait Too Long", and Solomon's own "How Big A Fool (Can a Fool Be)".

Family DoggWay Of Life ... LP
Bell (UK), 1969. Sealed Gatefold (reissue)... $9.99
A wide range of work from The Family Dogg – a UK group who were really inspired by the best Sunshine Pop sounds in the US, but one that also helped move the style strongly towards a 70s pop style too! The music is mostly pretty tight here – a mix of female and male voices (one of which is a young Albert Hammond) – rising and dipping with the tuneful hooks and playful melodies of the tracks – definitely the kind of sounds that helped get the Dogg plenty of airplay back at the time.

5th DimensionIndividually & Collectively ... LP
Bell, 1972. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $4.99
An early 70s treasures from The 5th Dimension – continuing the group's amazing run from the late 60s onward – a sublime blend of the group's great harmonies with standout lead vocals – all produced by Bones Howe, and arranged with help from from Bob Alcivar and Bill Holman! There's a growing sophistication in the set that we really like – a deeper, more personal feel on some of the lyrics – especially some of the more "adult" styled numbers that always showed that the group was way more than just a simple pop machine. Tracks include a scatting vocal version of the Johnny Alf bossa groover "Sky & Sea", plus "I Didn't Get To Sleep At All", "All Kinds Of People", "Tomorrow Belongs To The Children", "Turn Around To Me", "Band Of Gold", and "Border Song".

5th DimensionLiving Together, Growing Together ... LP
Bell, 1973. Near Mint- ... $2.99
The group's grown plenty by the time of this set – hitting a new level of sophistication that takes them way beyond the familiar pop of earlier years! There's definitely a more adult feel to some of these tracks than before – a maturing quality that's really wonderful – probably summed up best in the lead vocals of Marilyn McCoo or Florence LaRue – but still sounding pretty great even when the whole group's singing together! Bones Howe is still at the helm, guiding the group with a heavenly sound that's the pinnacle of pop at the time – and titles include two great Burt Bacharach numbers – "Living Together,Growing Together", lifted from the Lost Horizon soundtrack, and "Let Me Be Lonely" – plus the tracks "Woyaya", "What Do I Need To Be Me", "Open Your Window", and "The Riverwitch".

Michel LegrandThree Musketeers ... LP
Bell, 1974. Near Mint- ... $4.99
70s soundtrack work from the mighty Michel Legrand – his score for the famous Three Musketeers film directed by Richard Lester! The Musketeers music is quite dramatic – often filled with action, but with a few tender spots as well – and although somewhat more conventional in terms of scoring, there's still some of those sweeter Legrand touches we love so much – especially in some of the orchestral moments that echo his energy from Peau D'Ane. As you might guess from the story, there's a few period themes at points – although not as many as you might expect. Titles include "He Ain't Heavy He's The Cardinal", "Four Abreast", "Sword For Your Supper", "To Love A Queen", and "Dirty Business Amongst The Dirty Laundry". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Burt BacharachLost Horizon – Original Soundtrack ... LP

One of Bacharach's strangest records! The soundtrack was written for the huge flop musical Lost Horizon – and it features all vocal tracks, sung by the likes of Shawn Phillips, Sally Kellerman, and Diana Lee. The overall feel is very sing-songy, with kind of a children's them sort of sound – but there's actually a few nuggets of great songwriting in here, especially on the tracks "The World Is A Circle" and "Living Together, Growing Together".

✨✧ Michel LegrandBrian's Song ... LP
Bell, 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wonderful little record from Michel Legrand – one of his best non-soundtrack albums of the time! The album is titled after the theme to the soppy film Brian's Song – but it's got a lot more to offer than that – and has Legrand performing versions of soundtrack numbers from a variety of films, using sweet 70s orchestrations in a manner that builds off his best 60s work – but also opens up the sound a bit more. There's a spacious feel here we really love – soaring strings over electric basslines, and lots of tight piano work from Legrand himself – and titles include "Picasso Summer", "Pieces of Dreams", "I Will Say Goodbye", and "Dis-Moi".

Bell, 1971. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
The cover to this one has The 5th Dimension sporting some heavy-duty outfits – and the album's got an equally bold sound to match! The group's still in very familiar territory here – working under the direction of Bones Howe – but they're also completely confident in their bag – stepping out with a solid, punched-up approach to pop – one that draws strongly from the soulful harmonies of the quintet, yet which also has some pointedly personal moments as well. As before, the choice of songs is easily one of the best aspects of the record – and the group do a great cover of "Viva Tirado", plus "What Does It Take To Wind Your Love", "Love's Lines, Angles, & Rhymes", "Time & Love", "Guess Who", and "He's A Runner".

Gary BurtonGary Burton Quartet In Concert ... LP
RCA, 1968. Very Good ... $5.99
Groundbreaking work on vibes by Gary Burton – recorded in a setting that's live and open, yet quite groovy too! There's a rhythmic freeness that marks the set from the very first note – lessons learned from the generation of Ornette, yet taken in new direction – and definitely into new colors and tones – thanks to Burton's amazingly chromatic vibes, and the vivid guitar of Larry Coryell – not to mention the unusual rhythms from Steve Swallow on bass and Bob Moses on drums. These youthful players push the envelope even more than on some of Burton's other RCA albums of the time – going for a groove that's much more open and abstract, and which puts Coryell's guitar in a role that's as important as Burton's vibes in the set. Titles include "Wrong Is Right", "Walter L", "Lines", "The Sunset Bell", and "Blue Comedy". LP, Vinyl record album

5th DimensionPortrait ... LP
Buddah, 1970. Very Good Gatefold ... $1.99
A wonderful record by The 5th Dimension – hip, sophisticated, and one that shows that they had a depth that went beyond simple soul harmonies! The proof of this is the group's killer track "One Less Bell To Answer", one of the frankest songs about adult love and breakup to ever crack the charts in the 60s – but there's plenty of other gems, including "Puppet Man", "Feelin Alright", "A Love Like Ours", "Save The Country", "Dimension 5ive", and the extended medley of "The Declaration/Change Is Gonna Come/People Got To Be Free". Arrangements are by producer Bones Howe, with the team of Bob Alcivar and Bill Holman – both of whom helped to shape the group's sound nicely in the post-Jimmy Webb years. LP, Vinyl record album

Dizzy GillespieSwing Low, Sweet Cadillac ... LP
Impulse, 1967. Very Good- Gatefold ... $11.99
A brilliant album of Latiny grooves from Diz! The record takes off from the soulful/modal mood of the early 60s groups with Lalo Schifrin and Kenny Barron – and features a young Mike Longo crafting some fantastic lines on piano, stretched out over tight rhythms on electric bass and drums, with Dizzy soloing on trumpet, and James Moody adding in washes of color and emotion on alto, tenor, and flute. The best tracks are long groovers that really show the group stretching out – especially on the album's 16 minute reading of Dizzy's classic "Kush", the title track "Swing Low Sweet Chariot", and a great version of "Mas Que Nada"!

Johnny MathisI'm Coming Home ... LP
Columbia, 1973. Very Good ... $3.99
Johnny Mathis gets a great new sound here – thanks to Philly production and arrangements from the great Thom Bell! Thom had quite a hand in the songs, too – as almost all numbers were written by the team of Bell and Linda Creed – really sensitive songwriters who've got an adult, mature approach to the music – one that still respects Mathis' roots in other vocal territory, but which also gives him a bit more soulful depth, too. The setting is wonderful, and the record's a real standout in Johnny's 70s career – one that helped reignite interest in the singer at a time when so many folks had left him behind. Titles include "I'm Coming Home", "Foolish", "I'm Stone In Love With You", "A Baby's Born", "Life Is A Song Worth Singing", "I Just Wanted To Be Me", and a classic version of "Stop Look & Listen To Your Heart".

Melba MooreI Got Love ... LP
Mercury, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Great early work from Melba Moore – recorded at a time when she was winning big accolades for her work on stage as a parody of Diana Ross in Hair – but stepping out here as a hell of a great soul singer on her own! The tunes have a groove that's a bit more complicated than the usual soul work of the time – charts by Charlie Calello that show all his wonderful background in creative pop in the 60s – plus a few more numbers charted by Thom Bell and Jimmy Wisner. Melba's vocals are superb – very on the money, no matter what the setting – and titles include "Captain St Lucifer", "I Got Love", "Time & Love", "I Love Making Love To You", "I Messed Up On A Good Thing", "Easy To Be Hard", and "The Facade".

One of Lou's classics for Philly International – a warm mix of smooth soul and adult vocals, handled with some great arrangements by Dexter Wansel and Thom Bell. There's less standout singles on this set than previous Philly records, but Lou's class and quality makes nearly every track come out wonderfully – a masterpiece of soulful understatement and grace. Titles include "We Keep Getting Closer To Being Further Apart", "Time Will Take Care Of Everything", "What's The Matter With The World", "Bark Bite", and "Lover's Holiday". LP, Vinyl record album

Spare and introspective musings from Terje Rypdal – playing nearly solo here on a variety of guitars, plus piano, electric piano, soprano sax, flute, and bells – all of which are used very spaciously in the set! The record does feature a bit of almost-indiscernible voice from Inger Rypdal, but it's really mixed in sparely with the rest of the instrumentation – drifting along more as a sound than a song. Titles include "Autumn Breeze", "Kjare Maren", "Little Bell", "Like A Child Like A Song", and "After The Rain". LP, Vinyl record album

Zoot SimsWaiting Game ... LP
Impulse, 1966. Very Good Gatefold ... $14.99
A rare gem from Zoot Sims – very different than any of his other albums! The session features Zoot blowing over large backings arranged and conducted by Gary McFarland, a bit in the older Verve "with strings" mode, but also sparkling with a lot of the newer elements that McFarland was bringing to his work at the time. The approach is both light and lush at the same time – and Zoot's got a tone and approach that we've never heard on any other record, making the whole album an incredible treat that we'd rank up there with Stan Getz's experiments of the same type from the 60s. Titles include "I Wish I Knew", "Does The Sun Really Shine On The Moon", "Once We Loved", "Old Folks", "September Song", "Stella By Starlight", and "Once I Could Have Loved". LP, Vinyl record album

SpinnersSpinners Live ... LP
Atlantic, 1975. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $4.99
A fascinating little record by The Spinners – and a real contrast to some of their other Atlantic albums! The set has them stepping out of the tightly controlled studio sound of their Philly albums – still working with Thom Bell on production, but doing so in a freer sort of live setting. A number of tracks are taken in very open versions, and really extended out nicely – and there's also some good material on here that shows that the group's harmonies could work in just about any setting. Surprisingly great – a really excellent little album that shows that the group were as strong as a unit as they could be as part of a hit-making machine. Titles in lude "Then Came You", "Sadie", "Fascinating Rhythm", "I've Got To Make It On My Own", "Superstar Medley", "Love Don't Love Nobody", and "Mighty Love". LP, Vinyl record album

Forget any biases you might have against Clark Terry – this album is a super-hip killer! The arrangements were handled by Joe Cain, a mad mad mad Latin arranger who brings a strange sense of rhythm to the session, and a unique way of inserting instrumental flourishes. There's some nice organ and firey piano, Jerome Richardson plays excellent bits on flute and sax, and Vince Bell and Eric Gale both play guitars. Jose Mangual and Willie Bobo kick it in with percussion, and Terry plays in a tight jaunty style, with occasional mad vocal moments.

Warner, 1975. Very Good+ ... $1.99
A wonderful album from Dionne Warwick – probably her greatest record after the early years! The session was recorded with production by Thom Bell at Sigma Sound in Philly – and the style is a sweet blend of Philly modes, from fragile ballads to midtempo groovers, all done in a warm and intimate style that's never cloying, and which really gets at the depth of Dionne's soulful style. The record's one of those that you might have passed by for years, but which if you heard it playing at someone's house, you'd say "Dang! What the heck is that?" Great all the way through, and with tracks that include "Track Of The Cat", "His House & Me", "Once You Hit The Road", "This Is Love", and "Love Me One More Time". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ WhoQuadrophenia ... LP
Track/MCA, 1973. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $9.99
A record we'd never part with – and easily our favorite album ever from The Who! Quadrophenia represents the group at its peak from all perspectives – songwriting, performance, and even studio presence – as the album's got a sonic sensibility that few other albums of the time can match! The set's a concept record – a story, like Tommy – yet it remains incredibly lean, without any overcluttered rock opera feel – so much so that most tunes stand mightily on their own, but also have a dense sense of texture when taken together as part of the double-length album. And we'll also say that the record's one of the few extended sets we always end up breezing through from start to finish – almost surprised by the time it comes to a close – and often hitting repeat to hear the whole thing over again! Titles include "I Am The Sea", "The Real Me", "Cut My Hair", "The Punk & The Godfather", "Sea & Sand", "5:15", "Bell Boy", "Love Rein O'Er Me", and "Is It In My Head". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Art Ensemble Of ChicagoThird Decade ... LP
ECM, 1985. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A surprisingly great little album – recorded on the occasion of the Ensemble's third decade in music, and a record that sounds a lot better than we remember! At the time of release, we kind of "pooh poohed" this one because of its divergence from some of the group's other styles – some tracks are straighter, more composed, and less improvised; others use a larger sound palette, and go for themes that are almost sentimental and nostalgic at times. Yet somehow, going back to this one, we're stunned at how interesting we find the whole thing – as each track seems to offer up a new surprise, and the series of musical visions expressed shows how much the group had grown during their time together. Includes the wonderful "Prayer For Jimbo Kwesi", the percussive jammer "Third Decade", the sonorously-wonderful "Bell Piece", and the tracks "Walking In The Moonlight", "Zero", and "Funky AECO".

The mighty Thom Bell arranged most of the numbers here – save for 2 by Anthony Dorsey – and the group's heavenly harmonies are in amazing form on both mellow ballads and a few more righteous numbers. Titles include "Didn't I Blow Your Mind This Time", "Funny Feeling", "Over & Over", "Baby I Love You", "When You Get Right Down To It", "Delfonics Theme", "Trying To Make A Fool Of Me", "I Gave To You", "Down Is Up Up Is Down", and "Think About Me".

Tripped out, melodic and groovy pop psych from Apple – a great UK group that mixes accessible tunecraft with a rugged underbelly and just enough weirdness – their excellent Apple A Day album that's up there in greatness with some of Apple's much better remembered peers. As you might guess from a group called Apple, there's a plenty of period Beatles inspiration, but also harder UK bluesy psych sounds and otherwise edgier vibes. A nice one!

Art Ensemble Of ChicagoLive At Mandel Hall ... LP
Delmark, 1972. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99
One of the best post-Paris live dates by the Art Ensemble Of Chicago – recorded right on their southside home turf in Chicago, as something of a homecoming after their years abroad! The performance is really one continuous piece, divided up into chapters – and it starts off with an intensity that's bolder than much of the group's previous recordings – an almost-free sort of sound that's quite raw, and which must have been a great way to announce their presence back on the Chicago scene. As the piece moves on, it slows a bit in pace, and opens up more in mood – but always has an edge that's quite distinct – almost free of some of the wit that marked the Ensemble's work from a few years before. The core lineup features Lester Bowie on trumpet and flugelhorn, Roscoe Mitchell and Joseph Jarman on saxes, Malachi Favors on bass, and Don Moye on drums and percussion – but as always, all players get their hands on plenty of other instruments during the performance – an array of horns, gongs, bells, whistles, bike horns, and more – all used to great effect! Sections of the work are titled "Duffvipels", "Checkmate", "Dautalty", and "Mata Kimasu". LP, Vinyl record album

Sikiru Ayinde BarristerIwa ... LP
Siky-Oluyole (Nigeria), Early 80s. Fair ... $2.99
Hypnotic Fuji music from Alhaji (Chief) Sikiru Ayinde Barrister and his Supreme Fuji Commanders! The rawly and heavily percussive sound is makes a strong sensory impact – with nicely recorded, echoey vocals out front of that thundering, though impressively rhythmic backdrop. The album features 2 longer songs on one side and a handful of shorter pieces on side two. 10 in all. Titles include "Iwa", "Alhaji Rasaq Okoya", "Late Alhaja Sidikat Abeni (Haruna Ishola Bello)", "Olabisi Ilori", "Owolabi Ilori", "Fuji Americano" and "Singing Roundabout". LP, Vinyl record album

Elmer BernsteinMovie & TV Themes Composed & Conducted By Elmer Bernstein ... LP
Choreo, 1962. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Elmer Bernstein serves up some of his most famous soundtrack themes – but in a style that's even more jazz-based than the original! The group here is a large one, filled with great west coast players – and Bernstein's tunes sparkle even more in this rich setting than they did in their initial use on film – partly because the presentation allows some musicians the chance to really open up and solo! The lineup features Bud Shank and Bob Cooper on saxes, Pete Candoli and Don Fagerquist on trumpets, Milt Bernhart and Dick Nash on trombones, Bob Bain on guitar, Russ Freeman on piano, Shelly Manne on drums, and Francisco Aquabella on percussion – and titles include "Rat Race", "Three Time Blueser", "Hop Skip But Jump", "Jubilation", "Man With The Golden Arm", "Saints & Sinners", and "Sweet Smell Of Success".

Big MaybelleWhat More Can A Woman Do? ... LP
Brunswick, Mid 60s. Very Good- ... $6.99
A surprisingly great little soul record from Big Maybelle – done in a style that's quite different than her earlier sides for Savoy, but which still also shares the best elements of those records as well! Maybelle's voice is really incredible – with that strange tone and sadness that made her initial recording of "Candy" a perennial hit – and the arrangements on the album are steeped in strings, but syncopated in a way that's a bit like work by Ray Charles on ABC, or labelmate Jackie Wilson on his mellower tracks. Includes a remake of "Candy", plus "I Still Care", "Tortured", "What More Can A Woman Do?", "Everybody's Got A Home But Me", and "Cry". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Black UhuruDub Factor ... LP
Mango, 1983. Very Good+ ... $12.99
One of our top 10 dub albums of all time! This LP bridges the gap between the the low-fi, down and dirty excursions of the 70's dub era, and the later high tech dub revolution brought on by On-U, Mad Professor and Jah Shaka. The rhythms here are all first rate, drawn mostly from their Chill Out LP with a few from Red, fueled by Sly and Robbie and a cast of regulars from the Island/Mango stable. Sly & Robbie also handle the production duties, and there's no shortage of fat grooves and unrelenting rhythms, then taken to the next level with deep space echo drops and 21st century sound effects and tape edits. Includes "Ion Storm", "Big Spliff", "Boof'N'Baff'N'Biff", "Puffed Out" and "Android Rebellion". LP, Vinyl record album

Clarinet SummitSouthern Bells ... LP
Black Saint (Italy), 1987. Near Mint- ... $6.99
A groundbreaking ensemble – akin to the World Saxophone Quartet, and no doubt inspired by their experiments at the same time. The difference, though, is the range of experience of the players – as the group features David Murray, Jimmy Hamilton, Alvin Batiste, and John Carter, all playing b-flat or bass clarinets. No other accompaniment is featured, and titles include "Fluffy's Blues", "Beat Box", "Perdido", and "Southern Bells". LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny ClarkCool Struttin' ... LP
Blue Note, 1958. Near Mint- ... $34.99
One of the most legendary albums on Blue Note – or maybe THE most legendary albums on Blue Note – a stunning session that shows what the label was capable of when it was really hitting on all burners – from the lineup to the music to the production – and even the classic cover art on the front! The album's a crowning achievement for pianist Sonny Clark – a player who'd already brought greatness to the world before the record, but really knocks it out of the park during the session – leading a razor sharp lineup that includes Art Farmer on trumpet, Jackie McLean on alto, Paul Chambers on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on drums – all coming together with some magic in the studio, crafting a sound that forever put Blue Note on the map! Tracks are long, open-ended, and almost effortlessly soulful – and titles include Clark's classics "Cool Struttin" and "Blue Minor", plus versions of "Sippin At Bells" and "Deep Night".

Francois De RoubaixLes Plus Belles Musiques De Films De Francois De Roubaix Vol 2 ... LP
Barclay (France), 1977. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $34.99
Incredible soundtrack work! You may know nothing about Francois De Roubaix, and the films these tracks are from are even more obscure – but trust us, this is a great set of tracks! De Roubaix follows in a tradition of strange baroque arrangements that's vaguely similar to early work by Michel Colombier, with touches of romanticism from Francis Lai – but it's got a strange twist that's all its own. These tracks feature odd bits of electronics, weird guitar parts, haunting woodwind passages, jaunty rhythms, strange vocals – and almost always, a commitment to keen melody and inventive instrumentation. A few cuts are a bit cheesy, but others are jaw-droppingly fresh – and are some of the best soundtrack work we've been exposed to in a long time. The set's got a total of 12 tracks that together feature some of De Roubaix's best work ever – and titles include "Adieu L'Ami", "Jeff", "L'Etalon", "Les Aventuriers", "Les Amis", "Les Chevaliers Du Ciel", "Enqueteurs Associes", "La Scoumoune", and "Les Anges".

Martin DennyExotica Vol 2 ... LP
Liberty, Late 50s. Very Good ... $6.99
The second album in Denny's legendary Exotica trilogy – a set of records that provided the extreme definition of the small sub-genre that today has become the stuff of legend! Denny's still working here in his classic format – a small group with heavy piano lines, playful percussion, and some birdcalls sung by the members of the group! The set's a mix of strange songs from strange sources, all given the sublime Denny twist – and titles include "Singing Bamboos", "Escales", "August Bells", "Ebb Tide", "Rush Hour In Hong Kong", and "Soshu Night Serenade". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original turquoise label pressing with deep groove. Cover has some seam splitting and a bit of pen on back.)
