Augusto MartelliBlack Sound From White People ... CD
Universal (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $13.99
If you can forgive the title of this one, you'll find it to be a very groovy record! The album's a killer batch of funky instrumentals ("black sound") recorded in Italy in 1972 by Augusto Martelli ("white people") – and it's got the groove and swing of some of the best Italian soundtracks from the time, no surprise, as Martelli had his hand in a few from that era! The package is a nice one – with a thick booklet, notes in Japanese, but some good images of Martelli and album covers – and the music is really great, with some excellent sax and flute work that takes the tracks into a jazzier mode than usual for this sort of thing! Loads of great percussion too – and titles include "Loco Love Motor", "Mondo No", "Krypto Blues", "Ma ne Vale La Pena", "90th Compleanno", and "Sara Stato Il Futuro". CD

Eugene Perkins/LaMont Zeno TheaterBlack Fairy (black & white cover) ... LP
Taifa, 1975. Sealed ... $129.99
A totally righteous little record – originally put together in support of a local stage production in mid-70s Chicago, but a set that's come to gain some global funky fame over the years! The record mixes together spoken bits, sung vocals, and some very cool instrumentation that includes lots of Fender Rhodes and guitar, plus excellent reed passages from the young Chico Freeman – all with a hip-stepping vibe that's a fair bit like the best soul-based soundtracks of the period! The spoken parts are especially great – and really make the record stand out from the pack – and the whole thing has a progressive, positive energy that follows in the spirit of earlier Chicago artists like Oscar Brown Jr or the Artistic Heritage Ensemble. The core story features a Black Fairy who's self-conscious about her social standing and race – and learns to empower herself by tapping into her inner strength and pride – very powerful stuff for a children's stage at the time, and a message that's unfortunately still very relevant all these many years later. Titles include the killer modal jazz number "Black Land Of The Nile", which almost feels like one of Archie Shepp's spiritual vocal tracks – plus "The Streets Of Harlem", "Afrika's My Home", "Travel to Afrika", "Black Fairy Returns", and "Hey Black Child".

Tartown/Get On Down, 1983. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $18.99 19.98
The amazing, and previously impossible to find bedrock hip hop single by Rammelzee & K-Rob – produced by artist Jean Michel Basquiat! Originally released in 1983, the deep, laid-back production and vocals were YEARS ahead of what anyone else was doing at that time. This reissue features the original 10+ minute version backed by the instrumental – with the iconic white-on-black Basquiat drawings on the front and back. A genuinely trailblazing 12-inch that's as fresh as ever! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Myles SankoBorn In Black & White ... CD
Legere (UK), 2015. New Copy ... $11.99
Great sounds from Myles Sanko – an artist pictured here on a cover that replicates the Gold series of older classics from one of the major labels – an approach that's pretty fitting for Myles, too – given the classic sound of his work! Sanko's a vocalist who's just come on the scene in recent years, but he's got the chops to quickly rise to the top of the international soul heap – able to be proudly expressive without overstating his case at all – in a groove that's laced with plenty of old school instrumentation, but at a level that's way more than just familiar funk and soul! Myles moves things past easy retro soul modes, and really brings it up from the UK soul underground – on titles that include "High On You", "Come On Home", "City To Crumble", "Sea Of Fire", "Save My Soul", "Don't Let Me Down", and "Goodbye Lady Goodbye".

Tony Joe WhiteBlack & White ... LP
Monument, 1969. Very Good ... $24.99
Damn soulful work from Tony Joe White – exactly the kind of set that shows why he was so great at skirting both the borders of rock and soul music at the end of the 60s! There's a really fresh, new groove going on here – a vibe that shows an artist who's spent a decade drawing in all the best elements of Memphis and Muscle Shoals, with a slight touch of Nashville country at times too (no surprise, given the Monuments Records release of the set) – but also a more biting singer/songwriter ethos that really pushes the whole thing out to a much bigger rockish vibe! Drums are amazing – played by Jerry Carrigan with an especially funky quality on side one – and the tunes are a mix of great originals by White – many of which would be covered by others in years to come – plus some well-chosen covers, too. Tracks include "Soul Francisco", "Willie & Laura Mae Jones", "Polk Salad Annie", "Aspen Colorado", "Who's Makin Love", and "Scratch My Back". LP, Vinyl record album

A&M/Universal (Japan), Late 60s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A dream of a record from those late 60s years when A&M Records was wonderfully free to experiment with new sounds and styles – and was able to turn out really amazing records like this! Joanne Vent is almost more of a blue-eyed soul singer than you'd guess from the rockish look of the cover – and is able to sing not only with a touch of jazz, but also with some deeper soul roots at times, too – but all without trying to come across like any sort of fake, overdone talent – thanks to the subtle, understated presentation of the album! Arrangements are by Michael McCormick, who shades in some strings at times, but mostly uses these earthy backings that are a bit Memphis or Muscle Shoals – but again, without ever overstating things too much. A gem of a record – with titles that include "Weak Spot", "You Can't Change", "It's A Man's World", "Bet No One Ever Hurt This Bad", and "God Bless The Child". CD

✨✧ Miles DavisLive Evil (black & white cover) ... LP
Columbia, 1972. Used 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautiful live representation of the energy of the Bitches Brew years – one that has Miles Davis and the group really letting loose with free-flowing, modally-inspired lines – cooking up an incredible blend of acoustic and electric sounds at once! There's a bit of funk here, but not much – and although guitar is sometimes used strongly, it's often not as noisy as in later live sides. Instead, the whole group gels together beautifully – an unlikely assortment of players that includes Gary Bartz and Steve Grossman on reeds, John McLaughlin on guitar, Herbie Hancock on keyboards, Hermeto Pascoal on percussion, Dave Holland on bass, and Jack DeJohnette on drums – all given new focus, direction, and inspiration by Miles! Titles include "What I Say", "Sivad", "Selim", "Funky Tonk", and a great medley of "Gemini/Double Image". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Joan JettFirst Sessions EP (black & white split colored vinyl – with download) ... LP
Blackheart, Late 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A blazing EP of some the earliest solo Joan Jett recordings – from right after the Runaways split! Joan was a rock & roll veteran already at just 19-years-old, and really nails it on this killer batch of demos, circa '79. Genre wise, she's towing the line between punky power pop and raw, straighter rock & roll – with a surprisingly convincing detour into a more melodic 60s girl group sound on the acoustic version of "You Can't Get Me". The EP closes with an electric version of that cut, too – a sharp reminder that Joan Jett's priority was kicking a**! Other tracks include "You Don't Know What You'll Get", "I Want You", "I'll Never Get Away" and "What Can I Do For You". LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia, 1971. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
A stellar concert from The Man In Black – and a set we'd rank right up there with the prison-based live that Johnny Cash recorded in the 60s! The material here is handled wonderfully – and recorded equally well, too – and in addition to a number of very strong performances by Johnny alone, the set also features some guest appearances that include solo numbers by Carl Perkins, The Carter Family, and The Statler Brothers – as well as Cash performances with most of them, and a few duets with June Carter Cash! Titles include Johnny on versions of "Sunday Mornin Comin Down", "I Walk The Line", "Guess Things Happen That Way", "Man In Black", and "Me & Bobby McGee"; duets with June on "Help Me Make It Through The Night", "Darlin Companion", and "If I Were A Carpenter"; "Matchbox" and "Blue Suede Shoes" by Carl Perkins; "Flowers On The Wall" and "Bed Of Roses" by The Statler Brothers; "Song To Mama" by The Carter Family; and variations of Johnny with other acts on "Rock Of Ages", "No Need To Worry", and "Children Go Where I Send Thee".

A pretty great book about the wonderful songwriter Johnny Mercer – key force behind the birth of Capitol Records, and a whole host of songs and careers in the 20th Century! The book's about the size of a songbook, and does include lyrics to a number of classic Mercer tunes – but it's also filled with loads of vintage photos, images from films, sheet music, and even some very cool documents pulled from Mercer's private papers – all used to tell the tale of this powerful force in popular music. Book is oversize, softcover, 305 pages, and filled with black and white images. Book

Jon BurlingameMusic Of James Bond (hardcover) ... Book
Oxford University Press, 2012. New Copy ... $6.99 35.00
Over the years, the music of the James Bond movies has become almost as notable as its stories and stars – not just the famous themes from John Barry, but also the participation of singers and groups as diverse as Shirley Bassey, Paul McCartney, Duran Duran, Tom Jones, Tina Turner, Madonna, and Adele! Author Jon Burlingame looks at the music of the films on a movie-by-movie basis – with chapters on the films that not only offer up stories behind the music, but also dig deeper into the scores as well – and sometimes offer up tales of sounds that never saw the light of day – like Frank Sinatra's proposed performance for Moonraker, the unused Eric Clapton guitar for License To Kill, and the possible Amy Winehouse music for Quantum Of Silence. The book includes a number of photos and album covers – and is 291 pages, hardcover, with lots of black and white images. Book

✨✧ Hadley CalimanHadley Caliman ... CD
Mainstream/Boplicity (UK), 1971. New Copy ... $11.99
One of the coolest, hippest albums ever from reedman Hadley Caliman – cut at a time when Caliman was playing on a lot of other west coast sessions – both jazz and soul – and a record that definitely pushes his new ideas to the forefront! Hadley is always great, no matter what the setting – but this record really offers him the chance to stretch out and express himself – both on tenor and flute, in a way that's more Strata East or Black Jazz spiritual than some of the other albums on the Mainstream label at the time. The group's nicely laidback – with Larry Vuckovich on piano, John White Jr on guitar, Clarence Becton on drums, and Bill Douglass on bass – but Caliman is the clear star of the set, and shines brightly throughout. Tracks include "Cigar Eddie", "Longing", "Comencio", and "Kicking On The Inside". CD

Samuel Charters returns to New Orleans in the wake of Katrina – and finds that the city's jazz scene is not only alive and well, but continuing to thrive and change in the face of crisis! Charters is a name that should be familiar to many – for his landmark work as a record producer for Folkways and other labels, where he gave New Orleans music huge exposure in the mid-century years – and also for his countless books on jazz and blues. This volume is perhaps a bit more personal than some of Samuel's other works – as Charters spends his time in the city with his son's family in a small apartment, and comes across vibrant music from the Hot 8 Brass Band, Soul Rebels, Barry Martyn, Michael White, Coco Robicheaux, Billy Edwards, and many others. 227 pages, softcover, with some black and white images.

✨✧ Alan ClaysonSerge Gainsbourg – A View From The Exterior ... Book
Sanctuary (UK), 1998. New Copy Book ... $2.99 12.95
One of the few English language looks we've ever seen at the music of Serge Gainsbourg – a well-penned biography that covers all of his classic years in a fair bit of detail! Author Alan Clayson does a good job of paying as much attention to the music as he does to Serge's celebrity – defining elements that make particular records or musical moments so great – and never getting too bogged down in the more sensational elements of Gainsbourg's life. We really appreciate that – as Serge has always had plenty to offer way past the headlines – and if anything, he's probably best remembered in this century for his key musical contributions much more than his public life. There's a bunch of black and white photos in the middle of the book, but the rest is text – and the softcover edition runs for 244 pages, with a helpful index of Gainsbourg compositions in the back!

Stephen DavisLZ 75 – Lost Chronicles Of Led Zeppelin's 1975 American Tour ... Book
Fourth Estate (UK), 2011. New Copy ... $5.99 14.99
The author of Hammer Of The Gods – which some say is the definitive book on Led Zeppelin – takes a look at the group's famous 1975 tour of America – a time when both Led Zeppelin and arena rock were at the height of their power! Stephen Davis was one of an elite few to travel with the group during the tour – and writes here from his special backstage access – not just to the shows, but the group's trials and travels across the US. The style is relatively personal – Davis isn't out to write a complete history here, just illuminate this famous tour – but that's also what makes it great – as the whole thing's almost got a cinematic presentation of the material. Not the deepest reading you'll ever do, but plenty of fun overall – and the 217 page book also features a fair bit of black and white photos too. Book

The hall gives a nicely echoey feel to the performance – almost an audio quality that's more vintage than the date of the recording – although all players come through with great clarity overall. Drummer Wilbert Kirk also plays a bit of harmonica – and titles include "Banjoker", "Sister Kate", "Cielito Lindo", "Farewell Blues", and "Juba Dance". LP, Vinyl record album

Al Di MeolaLand Of The Midnight Sun ... LP
Columbia, 1976. Near Mint- ... $3.99
A real 70s standout from guitarist Al Di Meola – and that's saying a lot, given the strength of most of his albums from the decade! The record's one that broke Al's talents out to so many different groups – yet never in a way that waters down his sound, nor dims his genius for a solo. Al plays a host of guitars – electric, and both six and 12 string acoustic – the latter of which are especially beautiful, and handled in a balance between European virtuoso modes, and some of the more rhythmic elements of the American fusion scene. Speaking of fusion, the other players on the date really help set the tone – Chick Corea on keyboards and piano, Barry Miles on Fender Rhodes and mini-moog, Stanley Clarke on bass, and both Steve Gadd and Lenny White on drums – each setting a different pace when they appear. Titles include "The Wizard", "Suite Golden Dawn", "Short Tales Of The Black Forest", and "Land Of The Midnight Sun". LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny DoddsNew Orleans Clarinet ... LP
Riverside, 1920s. Very Good- ... $2.99
Seminal recordings of the trad clarinetist, recorded in Chicago in a variety of settings, mostly smaller bluesy groups of the sort that were inhabiting the south and west sides of town. Like Louis Armstrong, he supplanted his New Orleans style to Chicago, meshing it with the urban black musics that would become the roots of jazz. A dozen numbers in all, recorded with Jasper Taylor's State Street Boys, Junie Cobb's Hometown Band, Viola Bartlette, Blind Blake, the State Street Rqamblers and Lovie Austin's Blues Serenaders, including "It Must Be The Blues", "State Street Blues", "East Coast Trot", "Chicago Buzz", "Walk Easy 'Cause My Papa's Here", 'Southbound Rag", "Bohunkus Blues", "Buddy Burton's Jazz", "Cootie Stomp", "Weary Way Blues", "Chicago Mess Around" and "Gallion Stomp". LP, Vinyl record album

Duke EllingtonBlack, Brown, & Beige ... LP
Columbia, 1958. Very Good ... $6.99
An important larger work from Duke Ellington – a suite of tracks that encompasses a range of styles and emotions in African-American expression! The work features some key guest work from Mahalia Jackson – singing here in a way that's different than other vocalists who worked with Duke in the 50s – much more steeped in a rootsy tradition. Group members include John Sanders, Harry Carney, Ray Nance, Quentin Jackson, and Cat Anderson – and the piece is divided into 6 sections, and includes the famous "Come Sunday" theme throughout most of the second half. LP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo. Cover has light wear.)

Mercer EllingtonColors In Rhythm ... LP
Coral, 1959. Very Good- ... $4.99

Arrangements are by Jones, Ellington, Dick Vance, and Luther Henderson – and the tunes have a rich tonal quality that well lives up to the "colors" in the title. Titles include "Coral Rock", "Black & Tan Fantasy", "Aqua Tonic", "Little White Lies", "Golden Cress", "Azure", "Blue Serge", and "Dawn Of A Greenhorn". LP, Vinyl record album

Nico FidencoBlack Emanuelle Collection – The Full Series (6CD & DVD box set) ... CD
Beat (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy 6 CDs & DVD ... $99.99
Some of the slinkiest, sexiest 70s soundtracks ever recorded – all packaged together here in one box set, along with a bonus DVD as well! The wonderful set brings together six steamy scores by Nico Fidenco – all penned for the softcore Emanuel films, both black and white, and a wonderful collection of Euro erotic grooves, mellower bedroom moments, and some mighty nice themes! Some of these works are now out of print on CD, which makes the box the last place you'll ever find them – and the set recreates all the individual artwork and books of the CD releases – titles that include Black Emanuelle, Emanuelle In America, Black Emanuelle Goes East, Emanuelle Around The World, Emanuelle E Gli Ultimi Cannibali, and La Via Della Prostituzione. Also features the special Music For The Black Queen DVD – which has a documentary, and three interview passages – and comes in a special slipcover case. CD
(Limited edition of 1000 copies. DVD is PAL format, region-free, so it may not play in all players.)

Tony FletcherLight That Never Goes Out – The Enduring Saga Of The Smiths (hardcover) ... Book
Crown, 2012. New Copy ... $6.99 30.00
The rise and fall of The Smiths – a group who've had surprising endurance over the years, and who've gone onto become one of the most important UK acts of the post-punk years! The volume is very detailed, and richly layered with both personal stories and concrete information – presented at a level that's maybe a bit more even-handed than Morrissey's own biography, although we did like that book pretty well too! The book offers a huge amount of coverage on the group's formation, and their pre-Smiths years in Manchester – even offering up maps and photos, too – which create this fascinating portrait of creative development, and the gestation of talent before its bigger potential loomed large. The book is huge – almost 700 pages, hardcover, and includes some black and white images and photos. Book
(Small remainder mark on spine.)
