Blood Sweat & TearsBlood Sweat & Tears 4 ... LP
Columbia, 1971. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Okay, we admit it, we never really know whether we want to call Blood, Sweat & Tears a funky, soulful rock band, or a bunch of white guys making a respectable effort at curring soul albums, but either way, the stuff sounds good to us! By this point the group had enjoyed enough chart success to stretch out a bit, but their signature horn driven combination of bluesy rock bluster and heavily charted jazz voiced riffery is still in place. Includes "Go Down Gamblin'", "John The Baptist (Holy John)", "Redemption", "Lisa Listen To Me", "High On A Mountain", "Take Me In Your Arms (Rock Me A Little While)" and "Mama Gets High". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ James Blood UlmerTales Of Captain Black ... LP
Artists House, 1978. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $19.99
A landmark album of the New York downtown scene – and one of the most groundbreaking guitar jazz albums of the 70s! James Blood Ulmer plays here with members of Ornette Coleman's group of the time – including Ornette himself, Denardo Coleman, and Jaamaladeen Tacuma. The style is very similar to that of Ornette's excellent Body Meta album – a mode that has the rhythms all turned inside themselves, using guitar as strongly as drums – in a style that's one of the most perfect visions of Coleman's harmelodic mode. The overall vibe is very Ornette-ish, but still also features plenty of great offbeat work by Ulmer on guitar – and titles include "Moons Shines", "Morning Bride", "Nothing To Say", and "Revealing". LP, Vinyl record album
(With original booklet – and in shrinkwrap too.)

✨✧ Blood Sweat & TearsBlood Sweat & Tears ... LP
Columbia, 1968. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A stone classic from Blood Sweat & Tears – and a record that went onto have a tremendous impact in jazz, rock, funk, and soul! The group's format is plenty darn famous – adding a lot of horns to hip riffing grooves – but despite countless plays on oldies stations over the years, this initial album still has a power that's undeniable – a way of putting the whole thing together that really uses the best elements of the late 60s studio – handled with sweet production from James William Guerico that rivals his best work for Chicago! Even the lead vocals by David Clayton Thomas hold up nicely – and the set includes the classics "Variations On A Theme By Eric Satie", "And When I Die", "Smiling Phases", "More & More", "Spinning Wheel", and "You've Made Me So Very Happy".

RCA, 1966. Very Good+ ... $29.99
If there's anything scarier than Truman Capote, it's the sound of Truman reading from his creepy book In Cold Blood! Capote had an incredible voice – perfect for the topic of the book, recorded here with great fidelity by RCA. Snippets include "It Was Late Afternoon", "Dewey Had Watched Them Die", "It Was Midday Deep In The Mojave Desert", and "The Two Young Men Had Little In Common". LP, Vinyl record album

Fela & Africa 70Sorrow Tears & Blood (180 gram pressing – with bonus download) ... LP
Knitting Factory, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $17.99 19.99
An impassioned attack on police and army violence in 70s Nigeria – and easily one of Fela Kuti's best-remembered albums of the time! The lead track – "Sorrow Tears & Blood" – is really tremendous – a wicked groove that begins with a very long electric piano solo, which sets things up with almost a melancholy vibe – which is then echoed by the alto sax – all instrumental elements that create their own sort of pain and anguish, which is then given focus by the angry lyrics of the tune! "Colonial Mentality" has an equally sinister vibe, and some especially strong saxophone work – really powerful, and with a very sharp edge – so that it really stands out from the rest of the group!

Mike HardingDeath & Horror – BBC Sound Effects Vol 13 (180 gram blood-splattered vinyl) ... LP
BBC/Demon (UK), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
Classic horror sounds from the BBC sound archive – material that goes way past the door squeeks and cat growls of other albums of this nature – at a level that really takes the "death" in its title seriously! It's hard to ignore selections with titles like "Arm Chopped Off", "Head Chopped Off", "Arm Broken", "Whipping", "Two Women Screaming", "Heavy Breathing", and "Nails Hammered Into Flesh" – and these tracks sit alongside "gentler" selections that include "The Electronic Swamp", "Approaching Thunder", "Grave Digging In Wet Ground", "Ghostly Piano Sounds", "Electronic Heartbeats", "Wolves Baying At The Moon", and "Squelching Footsteps".

Jesus & Mary ChainBarbed Wire Kisses – B-Sides & More (180 gram blood red colored vinyl) (2015 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Warner, Mid/Late 80s. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $34.99
Prime period B-Sides, live recordings and other rarities from The Jesus & Mary Chain – great stuff from the first 5 or 6 years of their career – up there creatively with their best work ever! As dark-edged as the band is, they've often worn their influences on their sleeves over the years, be it the proto rock rawness of Bo Diddley, the catchy vocal style of early Beach Boys (though layered in razor wire) or the moody freneticism of Can – and they're all the more open with them on this collection,while still sounding like quintessential JMC. Classic! Includes "Kill Surf City", "Surfin' USA", "Upside Down", "Swing (Darklands Outtake)", "Just Out Of Reach", "Head", "Cracked", "Here It Comes Again", "Bo Diddley Is Jesus", "Rider", "Don't Ever Change", "Sidewalking", "Who Do You Love" and more.

Skin Flesh & BonesDub In Blood ... LP
Sunshot/Pressure Sounds (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 19.99
A real dub rarity – a set that was originally issued in two different versions, both with different tracks – both in very small pressings! This excellent version from Pressure Sounds combines all the cuts from both discs – in a superb package of stripped-down dubs built around songs by George Faith and Al Campbell – recorded and mixed at Channel One, with a lean, effective sound that should stand as blueprint for all those contemporary producers who might muddle up the waters with too much in the mix! The basslines are especially strong – played by Bertram Ranchie McLean, Robbie Shakespeare, and Aston Familyman Barrett – and titles include "Dub To The Vein", "Dub In Blood", "Skin Dub", "Suit Your Dub", "Heart Dub", "Bandwagon Dub", "Doctor Dub", "Syringe Dub", and "Injection In Dub".

Kind of an oddball record for Flying Dutchman, one we don't see too much. Bob Thiele produced a ton of sides, but not too many under his own name. This one's got more than a few heavies helping out, like Oliver Nelson, Tom Scott and Bobby Bryant but somehow it never seems to rise above a second rate TV soundtrack or sound library type vibe. Includes "The Evil Dude", "Kung Fu, Too!" and "How Does It Feel To feel?". LP, Vinyl record album

GDM/Overdrive (Italy), 1965. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A very weird little soundtrack from Ennio Morricone – earlier than most of his classics, and done in a style that's much more conventionally horror-based! The film may be known to American viewers as Nightmare Castle, and it boasts a score that's heavy on the pipe organ – stretched out here in very extended tracks that go far longer than the original album – in a way that really lets the organ ring out with plenty of eerie touches! A few passages are sparer and more traditionally Morricone-esque – and feature some equally creepy wordless vocals! Titles include "Dall'Oltretomba", "Amanti D'Oltretomba", "Spettri", "Per Organo E Ottoni", and "Contrappunto Tragico". LP, Vinyl record album

Tony AllenBlack Voices ... LP
Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 1999. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
A seminal set that really put Tony Allen back on top – a record that showed that Allen was way more than just Fela's drummer, or another Afro Funk artist in general – but instead a really free-thinking, deep-concept musician overall! The album comes from key time that Allen spent on the Paris scene in the 90s – really refining a new sound, while keeping all the best bits from before – creating this new sort of darker groove that almost mixes older percussion with kind of a spacey style that's echoes proggish funk from a range of groups from Can to Cymande! There's loads of cool keyboards and tight guitar lines, and even the vocals have some spacey production that makes them fit nicely with the grooves. Titles include "Asiko", "Get Together", "Black Voices", and "The Same Blood". LP, Vinyl record album

Dennis BovellDecibel – More Cuts And Dubs 1976-1983 ... LP
Pressure Sounds (UK), 1970s/1980s. New Copy 2LP ... $23.99 24.98
Pressure Sounds does it again, with another fine collection of mighty, mighty dub! A much needed Blackbeard retrospective collecting 16 hard to get cuts from British dubmeister Dennis Bovell, rare dubs and instrumentals, plus a couple of outstanding vocal tracks from the man at the epicenter of the British reggae scene. Focusing on Bovell's early work, this collection brings some of his heaviest productions out for the first time since their original release in the mid-seventies, all propelled by his chubby bass playing and rounded out by his deft touch on the console. 16 tracks in all: "The Grunwick Affair", "Harmoniser Dub", "Dominion Dub", "Rowing (12" version)", "Zombie Zones", "Zion Dub", "Higher Ranking", "Ranking High", "Scientific", "Shi-cago", "None Jah Jah Children (Melodica version)", "Uganda Crisis", "Ah Fi Wi Dis", "Entebbe", "Blood Ah Go Run" and "Dub'er".

Change Of PaceBring My Buddies Back ... LP
Stonelady, 1971. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $29.99
A wonderful bit of harmony soul from the east coast – a record with exactly the kind of fragile emotion and personal depth you might guess from the cover! Change Of Pace are a group with a sound that's a bit like some of their contemporaries on the scene – but they've also got a slightly different approach too – one that's not just heartbreaking ballads and love songs, but which also has a somewhat righteous undercurrent. Social themes intertwine with more personal agendas in the tunes – making for some great lyrical interplay that comes off in a unique way. Backings are mostly gentle – save for a few slightly more upbeat numbers – and titles include "Bring My Buddies Back", "Our Forefathers", "When You Look Into The Mirror", "Blood's Much Thicker Than Water", "Yuletide Love", and "Hello Darling".

✨✧ ChaseChase ... LP
Epic, 1971. Very Good+ ... $2.99
The debut album from Chase – one of the hippest jazz rock combos of the 70s! The self-titled Chase album first burned onto the market in 1971 – and it's a great distillation of a groove that was bubbling around in various other segments at the time – some of the tighter big band rhythms of the late 60s, as you might find in the work of Maynard Ferguson or Woody Herman – mixed with the hipper rhythms from the rockish underground, particularly in the work of Blood Sweat & Tears or Chicago. Chase is a fair bit jazzier than both of those groups – as they often put the horns more upfront than the vocals – although most numbers do have some sort of vocals as well. Instrumentation is heavy on trumpets – which come together in blasting, blaring groove, even despite the smaller size of the combo – and Phil Porter lays down some great keyboard lines that really help some of the best tracks cook nicely. Titles include "Handbags & Gladrags", "Livin In Heat", "Open Up Wide", "Hello Groceries", "Boys & Girls Together", and "Invitation To A River". LP, Vinyl record album

ChaseEnnea ... LP
Epic, 1972. Very Good ... $2.99
A jazz rock classic that still sounds pretty darn tasty today – forged on the heels of Chicago and Blood Sweat & Tears, but with a sound that's leaner and meaner! The group's led by trumpeter Bill Chase – hence their name – and features lead vocals by GG Shinn and Terry Richards, both in a style that's got the same blue-eyed jazz soul overtones as that used by the groups mentioned above. The real strength of the tracks, though, is their jazzy backings – horn-heavy, as you'd expect, and hitting some great riffs and licks on the album's side-long title "suite", which features many instrumental passages. Titles include "Hades", "Aphrodite (parts 1 & 2)", "Zeus", "Poseidon", "Cronus", "It Won't Be Long", "I Can Feel It", and "Night". LP, Vinyl record album

Stelvio CiprianiGli Orrori Del Castello Di Norimberga (bloody edition) ... LP
Dagored (Italy), 1972. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $18.99 43.98
A horror soundtrack for the Mario Bava classic Baron Blood – but one that's done with some groovier touches than you might expect! Maestro Stelvio Cipriani handled the work for the score – and although he definitely brings in all the right dark edges for the narrative, he also sprinkles the tunes with some of his cooler styles of the period – similar to his music for action and erotic films of the time! There's plenty of dramatic moments, but we especially like the way they're offset by Stelvio's inherent sense of warmth and spacing – which keeps the whole thing from just becoming another familiar experiment in arch sounds. 2LP version features a few rare bonus tracks – and titles include "Ipnosi", "Inseguita", "Eva E Peter", "Il Barone E Fuga Di Eva", "La Bambina E Il Castello", "Macabro Maniero", and "Visitando Mr Becker".

A true masterpiece for The Cure – possibly their best ever! Robert Smith and company had flirted with moody pop before, but they really hone in on that with Head On The Door, and it's as essential as anything they'll ever do – a knockout from the the opening seconds of "In Between Days" to the closing seconds of "Sinking". Everything is firmly in place here – improving on the global eclecticism of their previous album The Top on cuts like "Kyoto Song" and "The Blood", more compelling melodicism on "Six Different Ways", the perfect avant pop of "Close To Me"... wow, this record! Indispensable all the way. Other tracks include "The Baby Screams", "Push", "A Night Like This" and "Screw". LP, Vinyl record album

A heady bit of mid-70s psych from Connecticut – the second album from Dr Hooker Band – recorded in 1974, but not issued until many years later! The album's a true treasure that deserves wider recognition – at some level as heady as any of the best known indie psych sets from the late 60s, but at another coming across at points with a raw intensity that shows that Hooker's generation definitely had a dose of The Stooges in their blood too! Instrumentation gets a bit tripped-out at points – with some cool keyboards by Bob Reardon – and titles include "Hello", "Free", "Winter", "Kamala", "A Tormented Heart", and "This Thing".

Lubos FiserMorgiana (10 inch vinyl) ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
Amazing music from composer Lubos Fiser – delivered with sounds and styles that go way beyond conventional instrumentation, to make the record one of Fiser's most striking releases ever! Organ and keyboards are often produced and played with lots of weird tones – on short tracks that also mix conventional orchestrations with very offbeat elements from tapes, percussion, and sound effects – sometimes electronicized at a level that really abstracts them past their original sources! The approach is sometimes striking, sometimes subtle, but always powerful throughout – with this dark beauty that really holds us rapt over the course of the film score's twenty short titles – including "Message From Marek", "Swan Steps", "Red Ghost", "Quinine", "Viktoria's Darkest Moment", "Lost In The Tavern", "Blood Red Roses", and "The Cards".

Like BST, Ides Of March have a really driving sound here – pushing forward with heavy drums, sharp bits of brass, and a great early jazz rock sound that's way better than most work by the competition in years to come! Tracks include "Vehicle", "Wooden Ships", "Home", "Bald Medusa", "One Woman Man", and "Symphony For Eleanor". LP, Vinyl record album

Greensleeves, 1981. New Copy 2LP ... $24.99
Scientist spins out on a dub-driven power boat – scanning the swamps to drive out the vampires and a host of other ghouls too – all while reinventing Jamaican music in the process! The record's filled with lots of cool electric elements – those weird production effects and electronic doodles that make the music of Scientist so revolutionary – especially when spun out over a still-familiar backdrop supplied by Roots Radics, with a core essence that's very much from the pre-digital world of Jamaican music. Rhythm tracks were done at Channel One, and Scientist mixed the set at King Tubbys – a host of dub mini-masterpieces that include "The Voodoo Curse", "Dance Of The Vampires", "Blood On His Lips", "Cry Of The Werewolf", "the Mummy's Shroud", "The Corpse Rises", "Night Of The Living Dead", "Your Teeth In My Neck", "Plague Of Zombies", and "Ghost Of Frankenstein". 2LP version features a full bonus record of vocal versions – by Wailing Souls, Wayne Jarrett, Johnny Osbourne, and Michael Prophet!

Bunny LeeNext Cut – Dub Plates, Rare Sides, & Unreleased Cuts ... LP
Pressure Sounds (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2LP ... $23.99 24.98
A wealth of rare tracks from the archives of Jamaican producer Bunny "Striker" Lee – tracks pulled from one-off dubplates mixed direct from the studio, and other unreleased tracks pulled from never-heard master tapes too! The music here definitely lives up to Lee's production legend – and, as explained in the notes, these dubs have an extra added dimension than some of his contemporaries' work – as they're mixed from 4 track tapes, instead of 2 – which creates this much deeper sound, and even lot more room for echo! Yet there's also a core compressed competence to the cuts that we really love – rock-solid instrumentation from top-shelf Kingston studio legends, on rare dubs of "Enforcement" by Vin Gordon, "Blood Of Babylon" by Barrington Spence, "Down In A Babylon" by Johnny Clarke, "Ethiopian Girl" by Linval Thompson, "A Friend Indeed Dub" by The Aggrovators, "Crucial Dub" by Prince Jammy, "Satta Dread" by Wayne Jarrett, and "The Gorgon" by Cornell Campbell.

An early spooky soundtrack from Riz Ortolani – a composer we usually know best for more playful work of the 60s, but who really shines here in his score for a film also known as Castle Of Blood! The music has this tense, spare sort of feel – almost prefacing more atonal moments to come from the Italian scene in the 70s, with a mix of acoustic orchestrations and some keyboard effects that almost have a sci-fi feel! A few warmer moments provide this great sense of contrast – and the album features 22 tracks in all – served up in a wonderful cover, too. LP, Vinyl record album

The cover's creepy enough – and the music is too – an instrumentally complicated score – one that features heavy guitars one minute, then strings, then stark, spare instrumentation the next – including weird bass bits and electric harpsichord passages that are very nice! The style is quite unusual for the often-light Riz Ortolani – composer of some of the bigger Italian soundtrack hits of the 60s – with a sound that's quite dark and heavy, very much in the horror mode of Morricone's work of the time. Titles include "Tema D'Amore", "Ballo Al Castello", "Suspence No 5", "Nelle Tenebre", "Incubi", "Ossessione", and "Allucinazioni". LP, Vinyl record album

Annette PeacockI'm The One ... LP
RCA/Future Days, 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $21.99 24.98
One of the best albums by offbeat jazz singer Annette Peacock – one with a loose, very innovative vibe in arrangements – with some pretty darn cool electronics! Annette not only has a strong voice, she's fearlessly creative in her use of it! On this album, her vocals are often processed through the electronics, in a way that's a good couple decades ahead of the curve, but never in a way that comes even close to denigrating her strength as a singer. At times, she's screaming like Betty Davis in a funky mode, at others she's getting raw and dirty in a Tom Waits vein, and at others she presages 80s club oddities like Klaus Nomi! Somehow these divergent modes work together, making this one of the most unique and trailblazing albums of Annette's career! Includes the funky break track "Pony", a pretty compelling number, plus "I'm The One", "Been & Gone", "Love Me Tender", "Blood", "One Way", "Gesture Without Plot", "Did You Hear Me Mommy?" and "7 Days".

PersuadersThin Line Between Love & Hate ... LP
Win Or Lose, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
A landmark album – one of the greatest harmony soul albums of the early 70s! The title cut is one you'll know instantly – as "Thin Line Between Love & Hate" is one of those soul classics that never gets old – and the rest of the album's equally great, with a sublime mix of rough and sweet that the group was never able to duplicate again. The sound is incredible – with arrangements by Richard Poindexter, and backings by the group Young Gifted & Bad, who often use a bit of vibes behind the vocals, which makes for a really cool sound! Titles include "Let's Get Down Together", "Blood Brothers", "If This Is What You Call Love (I Don't Want No Part Of It)", "Love Gonna Pack Up" and "You Musta Put Something in Your Love".

John StewartCalifornia Bloodlines ... LP
Capitol, 1969. Very Good+ ... $1.99
A late 60s studio folk gem from John Stewart – best known as a writer, having penned material for the Kingston Trio and "Daydream Believer" for the Monkees – stepping forward really well with this unfussy, but fairly impeccable set for Capitol! It was recorded in Nashville with some of the musicians who sat behind Dylan on Nashville Skyline – the Kenneth Buttrey drums and the Lloyd Green steel are always welcome to these ears – and John's voice and songs share a folksy, but down-to-earth sensibility that's exudes warmth from every pore. Hardly as well remembered as many of the folk-country-rock albums of the era, but it should be! Titles include "California Bloodlines", "Razorback Woman", "She Believes In Me", "Omaha Rainbow", "The Pirates Of Stone County Road", "Mother County", "Some Lonesome Picker", "Missouri Birds", "July You're A Woman", "Never Goin Back Down" and more.

War did the music for this funky soundtrack to an early Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs film, and although most of the stuff on here is just typical War stuff, there's one track called "Flying Machine" that's a long funky chase scene-type track that's worth the price of the album alone! Other tracks include "The Kingsmen Sign", "Junk Yard", "Superdude", and "Youngblood". One of the best War LPs! LP, Vinyl record album

The grandest scale and most elaborately furnished Black Sabbath album to this point – but they still bring the heavy! The title track is one of the most influential metal songs ever, with the foreboding lyrics, trudging stomp of a rhythmic pace and those bridges that are almost pretty – and the most of the rest of the album is great, too – more carefully produced than the previous few without compromising the menace. Titles include "A National Acrobat", "Fluff", "Sabbra Cadabra", "Spiral Architect", "Looking For Today", and "Who Are You". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Rick JamesCold Blooded ... LP
Gordy, 1983. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Another stone winner from Rick James' early 80s run for Motown – a set that follows strongly on territory opened up by previous records – especially that bass-heavy approach to funk! The record's maybe not as stone classic as others, but still is way tighter and more put-together than most of the James imitators of the time – and features some nice moments that include the very groovy title cut, the mellow "Ebony Eyes" duet with Smokey Robinson, and even a guest appearance from Grandmaster Flash. Titles include "Cold Blooded", "Ebony Eyes", "Pimp The Simp", "U Bring The Freak Out", "Doin' It", "Unity" and "123 (U Her & Me)". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jimi Hendrix & Lonnie YoungbloodTwo Great Experiences Together ... LP
All Platinum/Maple, Late 60s/1971. Used ... Out Of Stock
Well, we should hate this one as another "cash in on the late Hendrix" kind of album – but it's a pretty nice bunch of funk tracks with (supposedly) Jimi's guitar chopping away in heavy hard lines, and Lonnie Youngblood blowing away on hard heavy tenor. A number of tracks have vocals – we're not sure who by, although the record wants you to think that it's Hendrix. Good funky soul cuts include "Wipe The Sweat", "Segway (parts 1 & 2)", and "All I Want". Other tracks include "Psycho", "Under The Table", and "Table I". Wild production values, too!

Alvarius (Francesco Zampaglione/Andrea Moscianese)Tulpa – Perdizioni Mortali (with bonus CD) ... LP
Cinedelic (Italy), 2013. Sealed ... $9.99
A cool contemporary score from Italy – but one that feels like horror greats from the late 70s and early 80s! The instrumentation here is mostly in an old school electric style – keyboards and guitars that echo the music of Goblin, but at a level that's often more spare and less jamming – stretching out with this great sense of space that really builds up the tension and mood throughout – to create a really captivating record, even away from the screen. Titles include "Phurba", "Escape From Tulpa", "Lonely Nights", "Working My Ass Off", "Italian Giallo", "Lisa's Theme", and "Bloody Radio". LP, Vinyl record album

Brownout Presents – Brown SabbathBrown Sabbath 2 ... LP
Ubiquity, 2016. New Copy ... About November 11, 2016 (delayed)
A sweet return to Brown Sabbath territory – that wicked blend of deep funk rhythms and fuzzy guitar, served up by the Brownout collective! The groove has some of the Latin elements that you'd know from Adrian Quesada's other work – but the rising guitar lines dominate a lot more – as do the horns, which crest nicely above the music, to ensure that there's a bit more soul here than on the original Black Sabbath versions of the songs! Yet the vocals by Alex Marrero are also sometimes right in Ozzy territory – which brings things back to base a bit – making for one of the most unusual takes on the music of Black Sabbath you'll ever hope to hear. Titles include "Fairies Wear Boots", "Snowblind", "Supernaut", "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath", "Sweet Leaf", "Electric Funeral", and "Children Of The Grave". LP, Vinyl record album

Vic CaesarBare Knuckles – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Gucci, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99 16.98
A long lost electric funk soundtrack for the grindhouse also-ran Bare Knuckles – full of wild, funky organ riffing, heavy drums and chicken scratch guitar! The flick is one of those sleazy 70s monstrosities full of motorcycle chases, bloody fist fights, and butt ugly guys who get the girls anyway – ripe material for a wildly funky soundtrack! We don't know details of the sessions or the players involved, but the sound is pure late 70s gritty organ and drums funk – one that would fit a blaxploitation flick, a badly dubbed kung fu cheapie or silly revenge flick! Tracks include "Bare Knuckles", "Shake Down", "Gonna Getcha", "Loving You", "Essex Exit", "Charing Cross", "Loving You Too", "Bare Knuckle Blues" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

CommonLike Water For Chocolate ... LP
MCA/Def Jam, 2000. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $31.99 35.98
A huge creative leap forward for Common! Com had been slowly moving from a Chicago street poet role into a more universally conscious hip hop soul from record to record to this point, but Like Water For Chocolate is the one that really catapulted him deep into that realm – especially given the excellent, mood setting production of Jay Dee/J Dilla and The Soulquarians. For a little while there, we missed the rawer Relativity era vibe, and we didn't fall as head over heels for Like Water For Chocolate as the world at large did, but in hindsight, maybe we just weren't ready for it – it's easily amongst the best hip hop albums of the period. Titles include "The 6th Sense", "Cold Blooded", "Dooinit", "Geto Heaven Part Two" with D'Angelo, "Time Travelin' (A Tribute To Fela)", "Heat", "The Light", "Thelonius", "Payback Is A Grandmother", "Funky For You", "A Film Called (Pimp)", "Nag Champa (Afrodisiac For The World)", "The Questions" and "A Song For Assata".

Deep PurpleDeep Purple In Rock (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Warner, 1970. Sealed Gatefold (reissue)... $16.99
Deep Purple may be asking a lot to knock the faces of the presidents off Mount Rushmore, and put up their own images instead – but given the force of this classic early 70s set, they may well have the musical power on their own to carve up a whole mountainside! The album's a ripper right from the start – a tight barrage of fierce guitars and heavy drums from the legendary lineup that included Roger Glover, Ritchie Blackmore, Ian Gillian, Jon Lord, and Ian Paice – a group so tight, so tremendous, the only way to proper describe them is to encourage you to drop the needle on a classic gem like this! A non-stop barrage from start to finish – with tracks that include "Speed King", "Bloodsucker", "Child In Time", Into The Fire", "Flight Of The Rat", and "Living Wreck". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Serge GainsbourgInitials BB (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Philips/4 Men With Beards, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 21.98
A fantastic Serge Gainsbourg album – and the BB initials in the title belong to Brigitte Bardot! This rare gem from 1968 is a second set of tracks that Serge cut with Brigitte Bardot – and it's a doozy! The record repeats a few tracks from their other effort (Bonnie & Clyde) – but it's also got some incredible cuts that are exclusive to this album, and which have that stone funky groove that makes the best late 60s work of Serge so in-demand these days! The best tracks include "Ford Mustang", "Initials BB", and "Black And White" – all of which have incredible funky intros that are totally sampleable – and the set also includes "Bonnie And Clyde", "Qui Est In Qui Est Out", "Marilu", "Shu Ba Du Ba La Loo Ba", "Hold Up", "Torrey Canyon", "Dr Jeckyll Et Monsieur Hyde", "Comic Strip", and "Bloody Jack".

Marc MacMessage From Soulville ... LP
Omniverse (UK), 2012. New Copy ... $18.99
Deep grooves from Marc Mac – a set that's way earthier than any of his 4 Hero projects – and which is almost a tribute to the soulful sounds that have shaped his music over the years! The package is a bit similar to Mac's previous Right To Be Civil collection – and definitely has a similar aesthetic in the cover art – and the grooves here are forged from older samples, but reworked completely – way way different than any of the base elements that make them up, and abstracted with the kind of cosmic twists and turns we've always loved from Marc. There's also some great snippets of found spoken bits – showing especially the role of African American soldiers in the Vietnam era – and these give an added political bent to the whole project, albeit in a less direct way. Titles include "Afro Pride Soldier", "Feelin Like Clay", "Saigon Say No", "Brand New Thinkin", "Reflection Time", "War Baby Bloods", "Keep Your Word", and "Fort Bragg Revolution".

People's ChoiceWe Got The Rhythm ... LP
Philadelphia International, 1976. Very Good+ ... $6.99
One of the best of the later People's Choice albums, and one that does a nice job of keeping in touch with their roots as a funk group. Sure, there are a number of so-so disco tracks on here – like "Here We Go Again" and "Jam Jam Jam" – but there's also some nice funky numbers, like "We Got The Rhythm", "Cold Blooded & Downright Funky", and "Opus De Funk". Frankie Brunson's lead vocals come off sounding very nice, as does his groovy work on the keyboards – and Gamble & Huff produced the entire album, with arranging help from Brunson and Dexter Wansel.

Soft MachineThird ... LP
Columbia, 1970. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99
An amazing departure in music for Soft Machine – a record that really shifts the groove from the more psychedelic sound of the group's first two releases! The style here is much more stretched-out and spacious – really moving into jazz more than rock, and featuring very long tracks that each spin out for a side each on the expanded 2LP format of the record. Robert Wyatt makes a final appearance with the group here on drums – and the rest of the lineup features organ and piano by Mike Ratledge, bass by Hugh Hopper, saxes by Elton Dean, and trombone by Nick Evans – all working in a style that wonderfully mixes experimental moments with much more fluid grooves! Titles include "Facelift", "Slightly All The Time", "Out Bloody Rageous", and "Moon In June". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some ringwear, half split top seams, and some stains on front.)
