Augusto MartelliBlack Sound From White People (180 gram pressing) ... LP LP format
Heritage (Belgium), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $39.99
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 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". LP, Vinyl record album

Severed HeadsSince the Accident (black & white colored 180 gram pressing) ... LP LP format
Ink/Medical, 1983. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
Really great early work from Severed Heads – done at a time when they still had an edge, and were a lot more hip and electro than some of their later more goth-based impulses! The album's a perfect fit for all the best UK underground electrics of the period – Cabaret Voltaire, 400 Blows, and even the earliest Human League – back when they were nice and noisy. The duo have a great way of blending noisy bits with warmer elements – and even do these great sequences with turntables – kind of a more playful Christian Marclay mode! Titles include "Dead Eyes Opened" – which was a bit of a favorite – plus "Golden Boy", "Gashing The Old Mae West", "A Relic Of The Empire", "Epilepsy 82", "Treating Deaf Mutes", and "Brassiere In Rome".

Ubiquity, 2013. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the warmer grooves we've heard from Bosq so far – but that might also come from the soulful touches brought to the remix from Tall Black Guy too! "Paciencia De Jo" has this stepping glide that comes from mellow beats and sweet female vocals from Tita Lima – layered together very tightly, and with this nice sort of spacey feel. The original version has the vocals much more upfront – alongside some jazzy touches on keyboards and vibes that really warm things up! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Get On Down, 1995. New Copy 2 LPs ... Out Of Stock
A Shaolin hip hop essential! Liquid Swords is a high water mark in the Wu Tang canon – with some of the finest production of RZA's career. It's quite possibly our favorite record in the entire Wu pantheon, and next to Enter The Wu Tang and a select handful of other first wave Wu Tang solo shots, it's among the few that plays solidly from start to finish. An absolute hip hop classic, and the beats are entirely worthy of having on their own. Includes "Liquid Swords", "Duel Of The Iron Mic", "Living In The World Today", "Gold", "Cold World", "Labels", "4th Chamber", "Shadowboxin", "Killa Hills 10304", "Investigative Reports" and "I Gotcha Back".

Little RichardLittle Richard & His Band (Specialty 2103) (white vinyl) (2014 Black Friday Release) ... LP LP format
Specialty/Fantasy, 1958. New Copy (reissue)... $17.99
Hard-searing work from the legendary Little Richard – the real deal, the original stuff, the kind of work that blew everyone away when it was first released, years before Richard became some sort of cliche! The raw power in this music is undeniable – as Richard screams his way through a host of tight tunes, virtually inventing soul music in the process – as the band vamps with bold energy, and the leader serves up some searing piano alongside the lyrics! And yes, you'll know a few hits here, but there's also some lesser-known gems that further illustrate Little Richard's power – a set list that includes "All Around The World", "Send Me Some Lovin", "Keep A Knockin", "Baby Face", "Ooh My Soul", "Lucille", and "Hey Hey Hey Hey".

New Billie HolidayBillie Holiday At Storyville (white vinyl) (2014 Black Friday Release) ... LP LP format
Storyville/ORG, 1951/1953. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Rare live material from Billie Holiday – recorded at the Storyville club in Boston, and featuring some especially hip small combo backing! A good portion of the work appears to have been broadcast on radio – which means that the sound quality is professional, and done for a bigger audience – at a level that easily matches Holiday albums for bigger labels at the time. One set of tracks from October of 1951 feature Stan Getz on tenor and Buster Harding on piano – and another batch from a week later features Harding's trio, without Getz. The last set of tracks is from 1953, with Carl Drinkard leading a trio with Jimmy Woode on bass – and the album features a total of 13 tracks that include "You Go To My Head", "Willow Weep For Me", "I Cover The Waterfront", "He's Funny That Way", "Billie's Blues", "Miss Brown To You", and "Them There Eyes".

Harry BelafonteCalypso Carnival/Warm Touch ... CD CD format
RCA/Vocalion (UK), 1971. New Copy ... $11.99
Early 70s work from Harry Belafonte – and two records that are surprisingly groovy, and surprisingly ahead of their time! Calypso Carnival mixes Belafonte's older groove with a sunnier, more swinging 70s style – arranged by Ralph MacDonald and Frankie Francis with a surprising degree of soul at times – particularly that mix of Caribbean elements and American grooves that others like Johnny Nash would score big with in a few years. Ralph's arrangements are wonderful – and titles include "Lena", "Chinita", "Don't Stop The Carnival", "Elegant Donkey", "Season For Carnival", and "Black & White". Warm Touch has Harry Belafonte hitting a mode that's a bit warm, but a bit soulful too – a mix of styles that comes from arrangers William Eaton and Robert Freedman, each of whom do slightly different things with that magnificent Belafonte voice! Some tunes are laidback and mellow, and the record mixes in elements from some of the better singer-songwriters of the time – a nice change that gets past the calypso modes that Belafonte had maybe recorded a bit too much by this time. Titles include "Circle Round The Sun", "No Regrets", "Cycles", "The Circle Game", "Rainy Day Man", "Fare Thee Well", "Her Song", and "The Paris Song". CD

Jane Birkin & Serge Gainsbourg1973 (Di Doo Dah/Vu De L'Exterieur/A Bout Portant/bonus tracks) (2CD/DVD) ... CD CD format
Universal (France), 1973. New Copy 3CD & DVD ... $30.99
A really great package – one that sums up this key year in the careers of Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin – with two full albums, lots of bonus tracks, and a whole film too! First up is Birkin's excellent album Di Doo Dah – sweet sweet work from Jane – an early solo set that steps strongly off of her classic duets with Serge Gainsbourg! In a way, this album's as much a record by Serge as it is by Jane – since Serge wrote almost all the tracks, and since the arrangements are handled by the legendary Jean-Claude Vannier – who worked famously with Gainsbourg on Melody Nelson and other funky recordings! The set's got a slow, sexy, funky vibe – very similar to the Gainsbourg/Vannier collaborations – and maybe even sexier, given the way that Jane Birkin handles her breathy vocals. There's some sweet guitar bits that go great with Jane's delivery of the material – and the whole thing's an essential part of the Gainsbourg/Birkin canon. Tracks include "Help Camionneur!", "Banana Boat", "Kawasaki", "Leur Plaisir Sans Moi", and "Les Capotes Anglaises". CD features 2 bonus tracks – "La Decadanse" and "Les Langues De Chat". Next is Vu De L'Exterieur – a great Serge Gainsbourg album from 1973 – one that we'd rank right up there with his best work! The record's got a slinky funky groove that's right in a perfect post-Melody Nelson mode – music written by Serge, and played by a hip small combo that includes lots of great guitar from Alan Parker and sweet electric keyboards and organ from the great Alan Hawkshaw – both of whom really help keep the sound great! Many tracks have that mellow funk groove that's become the best-remembered Gainsbourg sound over the years – and as with many of his other albums of the time, this one's brimming over with potential samples and riffs to steal. Titles include "Panpan Cucul", "Sensuelle Et Sans Suite", "Pamela Popo", "Titicaca", and "Par Hasard Et Pas Rase". CD features loads of bonus tracks – 10 whole more tunes added to the album – including "Les Papiers Qui Collent Aux Bonbons", "Titicaca (inst)", "L'Hippodrome (inst)", "Panpan Cucul (working version with different lyrics)", "Pamela Popo (inst)", "Je Suis Venu Te Dire Que Je M'En Vais (complete)", and "Tout Mou Tout Doux (2014 rmx)". Comes in a great book-style cover – with notes and loads of gorgeous photos – and a DVD that features the film A Bout Portant – a 51 minute film, black and white, shot in 1973! CD

Black PearlBlack Pearl ... LP LP format
Atlantic, 1969. Very Good ... $5.99
Heavy drums and a good dose of soul – both of which make Black Pearl stand out a bit from many of their late 60s contemporaries! There's a definite bluesy undercurrent to the group's music, but the riffs are also pretty hard and fast too – almost a bit funky at times, and delivered with a starker sort of groove than the usual blues rock combo. The musicianship is super tight throughout – really at a superstar level, but without sounding slick or commercial – and the album alone is worth it for the sharp drums and guitar leads, but also sports some pretty great vocals too – with almost a garagey soul sort of feel. Titles include "White Devil", "Mr Soul Satisfaction", "Thinkin Bout The Good Times", "Crazy Chicken", "Forget It", "Climbing Up The Walls", "Reach Up", "Bent Over", and "Endless Journey".

Titles include "Rebel Rebel", "1984", "Knock On Wood", "Here Today Gone Tomorrow", "Watch That Man", "Cracked Actor", "All The Young Dudes", "Width Of A Circle", "Jean Genie", "Rock N Roll Suicide", "Big Brother", and "Panic In Detroit".

Sterling, 2010. New Copy ... $10.99 14.99
Somebody's finally gone out and written a book about one subject we can really get behind – the Record Store – and not only that, they've done a beautiful job with the entire package too! The book takes a look at the importance of the record store – not just historically, but culturally as well – with an especially important focus on the need for stores in the digital age, as a way of keeping both the music, and interest in the music, alive and well for generations to come! As you might guess from the subtitle, authors Calamar and Gallo have a bit of an agenda in their portrait – but they really pave the way with some great recollections of record stores past, incredible bits not just from folks who owned and worked in stores, but also from famous shoppers, artists, and collectors too. And even cooler, the book is filled with lots of great photographs – wonderful images of old stores in color and black and white, plus lots of great sidebar bits that help draw a focus on key issues in record retail. If you, like us, get a bit of a rush every time you walk into a record store, then you'll be sure to get an equal rush from this book – a wonderful tome that's one we can send home to our parents, and finally show them we've got a career worth a bit of respect! 238 pages, hardcover, and really beautifully done.

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

At the time, Carlton was still one of the most focused jazz fusion guitarists of his generation – really able to hone in on a great style and sound, with all the best expressive attitudes of guitar giants from years before – almost more of an updated bluesy soul jazz sound than some of the trippier or dippier modes of some of his contemporaries. There's definitely some rockish influences, but Larry also never over-jams his solos – nor tries to go for the crossover crowd – and titles include "House On The Hill", "Black & White", "Upper Kern", "Salud", and "Strikes Twice".

A young Leci Brandao makes a vocal appearance on about a third of the tracks on the show – and titles include "Preferencia", "Pensando Em Donga", "Alvorada", "Fita Meus Olhos", "Ao Amahecer", "Eu Sou Mangueira", and "Sim".

A great record from The Crusaders – and an album that's really the start of the group's strong run of smooth funky jazz for the 70s – a very vibrant little set, even though the black and white cover makes the whole thing look a bit understated! The album's got the group dropping the "jazz" from their name, but it's still a great bit of LA funky soul jazz – with electric keyboards from Joe Sample that are very much in a late 60s mode, plus guitar from David T Walker and Arthur Adams, and bass from Chuck Rainey, in addition to fine work by regulars like Stix Hooper, Wayne Henderson, and Wilton Felder. Tracks have a tight and uncomplicated funky approach, with a slightly smooth edge – and titles include "Do Yourself A Favor", "Try A Little Harder", "Cold Duck Eddie", "Way Back Home", and the Afro-funky groover "Alekesam"!

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.

Amazing lost work from Warren "Baby" Dodds – a pioneering jazz drummer born and bred in New Orleans before moving to Chicago and influencing countless trap clappers! Talking And Drum Solos was originally released as a 10-inch on Folkways, and as the title suggests it's a loose batch of sometimes spare, sometimes rolling crack drum solos by Baby mixed with some tight Big Easy brass jazz and easy going monologues by the drummer. The album is credited as being one of the first full albums dedicated to drum solos, but it's appeal stretches far beyond the concept. Tracks include "Spooky Drums No. 1", "Drums In The Twenties", "Careless Love Blues", "Rudiments" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Earth, Wind & Fire's first album – recorded at a time when the group recently had ties to the Chicago soul and jazz scenes, and a range of experience that ran the gamut from work with Sun Ra, the Artistic Heritage Ensemble, The Pharoahs, Ramsey Lewis, and countless other influential groups. Headed up by Maurice White on drums and percussion, the group forged an amazing blend of all these influences, creating a future soul sound that pushed black music to the next level – taking a wealth of previously underground modes of expression, and fusing them into a soaring sound that would soon put them at the top of the charts. This album's a lot looser and freer than their Columbia albums – with plenty of raw funk and some nice off-beat jazz soling. Includes the classic break track "C'Mon Children", plus "Fan The Fire", "Bad Tune", and "Moment Of Truth". LP, Vinyl record album

Nice one! Dizzy did the soundtrack for the lost Shirley Clarke verite drama The Cool World – a beautiful black and white film shot mostly on location in the Harlem of the early 60s. Mal Wladron wrote the material for the score, and Diz plays the music with a moody emotionality that you don't often hear in his other 60's work. The recording was made by his great group that included Kenny Barron and James Moody, and the titles include "The Pusher", "Duke's Fantasy", "Coney Island", and "Enter Priest". The CD also features the groovier Dizzy Goes Hollywood, which features the same group doing jazz readings of 60's soundtrack themes like "Carioca", "Never On Sunday", "More", and "Walk On The Wild Side". The whole thing's got 22 tracks in all, and is a very cool slice of Dizzy's career that you'll be hard pressed to find on vinyl! CD

Dizzy Gillespie/Mal WaldronCool World ... LP LP format
Philips, 1963. Very Good ... $11.99
A brilliant little soundtrack from Dizzy Gillespie – composed by Mal Waldron, and played by Diz with a sound and sensitivity that few of his other 60s albums can match! The feel here is quite bold and righteous – a perfect accompaniment for the documentary-like black and white images of Shirley Clarke's film – set in Harlem, and mostly recorded on location in the early 60s! Dizzy's tone is wonderful – bracing one minute, blue-toned the next – and the rest of the group is wonderful too – with James Moody on tenor and flute, Kenny Barron on piano, Chris White on bass, and Rudy Collins on drums. There's a richly expressive feel to the music that makes the set hold up fantastically both as a soundtrack and as a jazz album – and titles include "The Pusher", "Duke's Fantasy", "Coney Island", "Bonnie's Blues", "Duke's Awakening", "Coolie", and "Enter Priest".

Buddy Guy with David RitzWhen I Left Home – My Story (hardcover) ... Book Book
Da Capo, 2012. New Copy ... $5.99 26.00
The life story of Buddy Guy – one of the the key blues figures to come out of our Windy City home! David Ritz helps shape the story, but the book is definitely in Buddy's own words – which vividly paint a picture of both the Chicago scene, and the growing global world that began to appreciate the talents of Guy and his contemporaries – as well as a myriad of little trials and tribulations that show that the road to fame was never an easy one for Buddy – even after he thought that he'd made it! The book is a very lively read, but also has some heft too – and is 276 pages, hardcover, with some black and white images. Book
