✨✧ 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!

Claudio GizziBlood For Dracula (red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Dagored (Italy), 1974. New Copy ... $26.99
A surprisingly rich soundtrack for this famous Andy Warhol horror film – one of his key cinematic collaborations with Paul Morrissey! Claudio Gizzi's music is way more than schlock, or even the usual horror bag – as he mixes light orchestrations with these spare instrumental passages in a way that links together older thriller traditions, particularly British ones, with some of the new spareness of the 70s. Most tracks are quite short, and work together in this really illustrative way – almost making for a sonic sort of poetry, and one that's far more beautiful than anything you might expect to be associated with Dracula. Titles include "On The Journey To Italy", "First Victim", "More Blood", "At The Inn", "A Regret", "The Vampire Escapes", "Pursuit & Death Of Dracula", and "An Old Song". LP, Vinyl record album

James Blood UlmerAmerica – Do You Remember The Love? ... LP
Blue Note, 1987. Very Good+ ... $7.99
Ulmer on Blue Note – who'd a thunk it? And oddly, although the album's on one of the most jazz-based labels at the time, it's also one of Ulmer's most rock-oriented – with strong lead vocals on nearly every track, and an overall style that's as bluesy as it is experimentally jazzy. Ulmer's clearly emerged as a star in his own right (or own mind) by the time of the album – and there's less of the shared group dynamic of the harmelodic years, and more of a style that's set up to support his lead presence. Players include Bill Laswell, Ronald Shannon Jackson, and Nicky Skopelitis – and titles include "I Belong In The USA", "Lady Blue", "After Dark", "Black Sheep", and "Show Me Your Love America".

James Blood UlmerAre You Glad To Be In America? (US pressing) ... LP
Artists House, 1980. Very Good+ ... $16.99
A classic bit of Black Rock from James Blood Ulmer – and a record that was issued by Rough Trade in the UK, giving it a surprising influence on the post-punk scene of the time! In a way, Ulmer's groove here has a lot of punky-funk in the mix – thanks to some heavy electric bass from Amin Ali, and tight drumming from Ronald Shannon Jackson. The horns sneak in and out of the rhythms next to Ulmer's sometimes heavy guitar work – and players include David Murray, Oliver Lake, and Olu Dara – all grooving in a frenetic sound that's a key link between the New York downtown and UK post-punk scenes! Titles include "See Through", "TV Blues", "Time Out", "Jazz Is The Teacher (Funk Is the Preacher)", "Interview", "Pressure", and "Layout". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Black BloodBlood Brother, Blood Sister ... LP
Chrysalis, 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Later work from the combo also known as Lafayette Afro Rock Band and Ice – but still pretty darn nice – and served up in a style that has more straight Afro-Funk grooving than you'd expect! There's a nicely tight small combo feel to the whole thing – more African than before, especially on the lyrics, which are often sung together in chant form – but still with plenty of American funky touches on the bass, percussion, and keyboards. Black Blood do a version of "A.I.E. (A Mwana)", plus the tracks "Voodoo", "Shaba", "Wela Wela", and "Ewohe Dance". LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia, Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great soundtrack for a really stupid movie – featuring an amazing theme song! The soundtrack features some incredibly subdued work from Blood Sweat & Tears – playing in a laidback and jazzy mode that's like the best of Quincy Jones or Dave Grusin electric soundtrack of the time! The album also features some dialogue that comes in and out of the mix – which you can overlook – but the film's theme is more than enough reason to grab this one! (And by the way, you may know the tune from its redone version – as "Pussycat" by Black Sugar, from their first album.) LP, Vinyl record album

Warner, 1974. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the tightest albums ever cut by this San Francisco funk combo – one titled after their lead singer Lydia Pense, who'd become a much better vocalist by this point than she was on earlier efforts. The album's strongest point, though, is still the instrumentation – which is arranged and produced here by Steve Cropper with sort of a 70s Memphis groove, one that brings out the sharpest edges of the guitar and organ riffing. Titles include "Under Pressure", "Consideration", "Just Like Sunshine", "Ready To Live", "Simple Love Life", and "When My Love Hand Comes Down". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousWhich Way Does The Blood Red River Flow? – Some Of The Best Songs Recorded For The Testament Label 1963 to 1970 ... LP
Mississippi, 1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful sampling of work from the Testament label of the 60s – mostly recorded in the south by aging players who never would have gotten their due, had the label not gone out of their way to capture them in these years! The assortment of tracks is really well-chosen – and most of the work is very rootsy and acoustic – with guitar and vocals as the core elements that drive the sound throughout. The package is a great illustration of the fact that although blues was getting pretty electrified up north during the 60s, it still had a very traditional sound back down closer to the delta. Titles include "She's Mine She's Yours" by Eddie Lee Jones, "Jack Ain't Had No Water" by Jack Owens, "Low Bonnie" by Jimmie Tarlton, "Blood Red River" by Peg Leg Howell, "Windin Ball" by Elijah Brown, "Must Have Been The Devil" by Jack Owens, and "Amazing Grace" by Fred McDowell.

✨✧ Piero PiccioniColpo Rovente (180 gram blood splattered vinyl pressing) ... LP
GDM/Beatball (Korea), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the first great soundtracks we ever heard from Piero Piccioni – and still one of the best! Colpo Rovente has this really special sort of sound – jazzy, but not really jazz – bassy, but not really funky – and often done with spare, stark sounds – but never in a way that's too atonal or horror-based either! Piccioni brought a really special sort of genius to the record – a way of using each instrument with a very unusual sound or tuning – and isolating each element in just the right way, but with a different style than that used by Morricone at the time. Some tracks get nice and groovy, but lots more hang back in a style that's almost pensive – and titles include "Kintabu", "Blackflower", "Colpo Rovente", "Easy Dreamer", "Chinatown Drugs", and "LSD". CD features 12 bonus tracks – all unreleased alternates! LP, Vinyl record album

Parallel Thought, 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Gritty southern rap delivered with a laidback style, but with fully committed authority by Gene The Southern Child – backed by the chilly, ominious production Parallel Thought! They've worked as together as duo before, with pretty solid results, but they really step up their games on Southern Meridian. Dark and drity, yet strong and focused, and probably their best work together to date. Includes "Mobstyle", "Flo-Town", "Dopeman", "Split Personality", "Smackman", "Proper Poet", "See You", "Try Me" and more. 3 bonus tracks: "Sucka Deal" feat Caness, "Police Pulled Me Over" and "Whatever?".

BatacumbeleAfro Caribbean Jazz ... LP
Montuno, 1987. Near Mint- ... $19.99
Afro Caribbean Jazz – but with a good dose of New York Latin as well – just the kind of wonderful blend we'd expect from Batacumbele on a classic like this! All tracks are nice and long, and are recorded with an open, free-flowing energy that was hardly used in Latin music at the time – a mode that hearkens back to the jam sessions of the descarga generation, and some of the most creative modes of the 70s modernists as well! Like the best of those artists, Batacumbele has a way of weaving old traditions into something new – working complex musical patterns, but with a quality that's right on the money, right away – really grabbing you in, and holding you rapt throughout! The jazz aspect of this record is even higher than most of their other sessions – with trumpet from Tommy Villarini, trombone from William Cepeda, tenor and flute from Hector Veneros, keyboards from Amuni Nacer and Arturo Ortiz, and lots of great percussion from Angel Cachete Maldonado and other members of the group! Includes long instrumental numbers "May Day" and "Hot Blood", plus a cover of Horace Silver's "Nutville" – and the vocal track "Cachita". LP, Vinyl record album

Les BaxterBarbarian ... LP
American International/So Far Out (UK), 1960. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
An obscure one from the great Les Baxter – his soundtrack for the film Goliath & The Barbarians, which looks like a b-grade thriller on the level of Jason & The Argonauts! Les mixes exotic touches with fuller orchestrations – a bit in the blood-and-sandals style of the time – and the tracks have sort of a "sabre dance" quality to them, with lots of dancing strings that flare up nicely – next to some moodier moments that recall some of Baxter's other exotica music too. Titles include "Ride Of The Barbarians", "Fire Dance", "Rape Of The Village", and "Barbarian Games", which is subtitled "Noisy Village", perhaps a reference to Les' big hit "Quiet Village".

ChaseChase ... LP
Epic, 1971. Near Mint- ... $6.99
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- Gatefold ... $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 ... LP
Dagored (Italy), 1972. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $32.99 38.98
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".

Como MamasGet An Understanding (limited edition) ... LP
Daptone, 2013. New Copy ... $13.99 17.99
Rootsy gospel from The Como Mamas – a tremendous trio of female singers, working here in an all-acapella mode that's completely sublime! The set's an offshoot of the Como Now project done by Daptone a few years ago, and has the same timeless feel – quite a difference from the heavy funk you might normally hear on Daptone, yet equally soulful all the way through! The tunes are spiritual, but served up with more than enough depth to please any fan of secular soul, too – and the lack of any instrumentation, mixed with straightforward production, all makes the record feel like some lost indie label gem from decades ago. Titles include "Nobody's Fault But Mine", "Peace Of Mind", "Thank Him Enough", "God Is Good To Me", "I Know It Was The Blood", "Old Landmark", "Ninety Nine & A Half Won't Do", and "Soon I Will Be Done".

Ubiquity, 2013. New Copy 2LP ... $15.99 19.99
A really wonderful collaboration between Shawn Lee and Adrian Quesada – and a set that maybe goes further than a lot of recent work from the artists on their own! Quesada's ear for the psychedelic mixes wonderfully with Lee's funky grooves – in a space that's as trippy as it is soulful, and which wonderfully skirts a space between all the different genres you'd be likely to find in the coolest crate digger's collection! There's vocals on many tracks – but slung out over core instrumentation that really gets things going from a soulful perspective – so much so that even some of the more rockish moments soon get plenty funky. Keyboards are wonderful, production is rock-solid, and the whole thing's exactly the kind of nugget you'd guess from the title. Tracks include "Going In Circles", "Christophe Waltz", "Tape Lifter", "Cold Blood", "Dreams", "Mono Man", "Big Tweed", and "Backstreet Wall". LP, Vinyl record album

Lubos FiserMorgiana (10 inch vinyl) ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
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". Very cool 10" LP pressing, too! LP, Vinyl record album

GazzaraPlay Me My Song – Gazzara Plays Genesis ... LP
Irma (Italy), 2014. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $18.99
An album we never thought we'd see from Francesco Gazzara – but one that still pleases us a heck of a lot! Gazzara's a name we've trusted for funk and other groovy styles from the Italian scene for almost 20 years now – but here, he moves away from his previous jazzy modes into a completely different instrumental realm – as his ensemble takes on the classic sounds of Genesis from the Peter Gabriel era and beyond! Turns out, Gazzara's a hell of a pianist – and often plays a Bosendorfer grand here, along with his more familiar Fender Rhodes and Hammond – in a group that features two violins, cello, and sax and flute from Dario Cecchini – instrumentation that's often used sparingly, so that Gazzara's keyboards are up front and almost solo throughout. We're huge fans of Genesis from this time – and Gazzara really reminds us of the musicianship that went into their famous recordings – as he takes on titles that include "Watcher Of The Skies", "The Cinema Show", "For Absent Friends", "The Lamia", "Firth Of Fifth", "Duke's Travels", "Blood On The Rooftops", "Seven Stones", "The Knife", and "Mad Man Moon".

United Artists, 1973. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $14.99
An amazing little soundtrack from James William Guercio – music composed for his only cinematic effort as a director – for a film that features Robert Blake as a Native American cop! The score is heavy on jazzy horns with an undercurrent of funk – very similar to Guercio's best modes working with the group Chicago in the early days, and his productions for Blood Sweat & Tears! The depth of the music is quite a surprise – as we never new that James had this ability on his own – and it's recorded with that crystal clear quality that made him a revolutionary talent in the studio, too. Some numbers have a tight cop show sort of funk, while others have an expansive sound that's a nice contrast – and in addition to instrumental tunes "Free From The Devil", "The Chase", "Prelude", "Monument Valley", "Overture", and "Jolene's Dance" – the set also features "Most Of All" by The Marcels, "Meadow Mountain Top" by Mark Spoelstra, and "Tell Me" by Terry Keith of Chicago.

Beautiful trio work from pianist Vijay Iyer – a record that's filled with the sorts of chunky rhythmic lines we love so much in his playing! The album's got Iyer working much more at a familiar level than his more electronic album for ECM – with that sort of warmth and joy that's really brought new life to the piano trio format through his recordings – the best of which we might put up there with our early favorites from Robert Glasper.

Rickie Lee JonesRickie Lee Jones ... LP
Warner, 1979. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Sure, Rickie Lee Jones went onto become a bit of a cliche in later years, but this early album's still got an undeniable power – and was a great breath of fresh air, at a time when it seemed like most of modern music was forgetting its roots! What is it with the LA scene from the 60s onward that they always seemed to find their best inspiration in the past? Artists like Harpers Bizarre, Randy Newman, Tom Waits and others set the stage for a record like this – by reaching back into older styles and bringing them forward with a more contemporary spin. (And why was it that LA seemed to be the center of this mode – and New York, Chicago, and other cities never worked that way?) Rickie serves up a nice assortment of older-styled vocal cuts – performed with a mixture of traditional and 70s jazz backings, supported by some extra-classy Warner production from Lenny Waronker. Titles are all originals, but done with an older hipser sort of feel – and titles include "Easy Money", "Chuck E's In Love", "Young Blood", "The Last Chance Texaco", "Danny's All Star Joint", "Weasel & The White Boys Cool", "Company", "Coolsville", and "On Saturday Afternoons In 1963".

Excellent work by Klemmer – filled with the kind of fire and emotion that you don't get on many of his other records! The set was recorded live at two different venues – and it's a choppy slightly-funky batch of modal soul jazz tunes, with an approach that makes it feel like a lost album on Strata East. On side one, Mike Nock is on Fender Rhodes, Wilton Felder plays bass, and Eddie Marshall is on drums. Titles on that set include "Blood Of The Sun" and "How Cum Ya Got Ta Rip Off Your Brothers?". Side two was recorded live at Montreux, and features more Fender Rhodes, plus backing by Cecil McBee and Alphonze Mouzon. Klemmer plays tenor with echoplex processing, and titles include "Free Love" and "Tree Of Forbidden Fruit". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Method ManTical ... LP
Def Jam, 1994. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
One of the most triumphant records from the first wave of Wu Tang Clan solo efforts – and an early 90s hip hop masterpiece that's hardly aged a day since! Tical is right up there with Enter The Wu Tang (36 Chambers) on the quality front. It's got the iconic Wu production aesthetic in peak form, and Meth himself does an incredible job here of not only cementing the Wu Tang's legacy, but setting himself up to be the Clan's breakout solo success story for years to come. Includes "Tical", "Bring The Pain", "All I Need", "What The Blood Clot", "Meth Vs. Chef", "Biscuits", "I Get My Thang In Action", "PLO Style", "Sub Crazy", "Release Yo' Delf", the killer "Method Man (Remix)" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

John PattonAccent On The Blues ... LP
Blue Note, 1969. Very Good+ ... $11.99
One of the last John Patton albums for Blue Note, and one of the best. A young James "Blood" Ulmer's on guitar, and Marvin Cabell (who we only know from Patton LPs) is on tenor and flute. The sound is deep and soulful, and despite the "accent on the blues" of the title, the feel's more blue note than bluesy. Great versions of Harold Mabern's "Rakin' & Scrapin" and Eddie Harris' "Freedom Jazz Dance", plus some excellent originals by Cabell. LP, Vinyl record album
(90s reissue. Cover has some light wear.)

Alvarius (Francesco Zampaglione/Andrea Moscianese)Tulpa – Perdizioni Mortali (with bonus CD) ... LP
Cinedelic (Italy), 2013. New Copy ... $26.99
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
(Colored vinyl with bonus CD – limited to 333 copies!)

Simon BoswellStage Fright (180 gram clear vinyl) ... LP
Flick (UK), 1987. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
Sweet 80s horror work from Simon Boswell – awash in all the great keyboard and guitar lines you might know from bigger films of the time, and done with a sinister edge throughout! Some tunes are nice and moody – really just letting the keyboard notes hang in air – while others are a bit more pumped, and almost rocking – the sorts of styles you'd hear in a scene where the undead were running rampant, or things were really going pear-shaped! Titles include "Drama Queen", "Drill", "Aphonia Clericorum", "Requiem For An Owl", "Bloody Bird", "Deliria", and "Aquarius Theme". 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".

✨✧ Art FarmerSomething To Live For ... LP
Contemporary, 1987. Very Good+ ... $2.99
An unexpected treasure – like so many of Art Farmer's later albums! The record is ostensibly a tribute to the music of Billy Strayhorn – which might make us expect some soporific Ellington cliches – but the session's really just a small group one, played by Art with a quintet that includes Clifford Jordan, James Williams, Rufus Reid, and Marvin Smitty Smith – all coming together in a fluidly soulful style that's really great. Farmer's work on flugelhorn seems even more inventive than ever – and titles include "Bloodcount", "Johnny Come Lately", "Isfahan", "Raincheck", and "Upper Manhattan Medical Group".

Keith HudsonRasta Communication ... LP
Greensleeves (UK), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99
A classic from Keith Hudson – his Rasta Communication set from the late 70s! It was recorded at Randy's and Channel One with many of the greatest players in Jamaica at the time, which of course includes the finest reggae players ever – but it's Hudson's confident, proud vocals that make this such remarkable album. He really is an unique communicator here, with a clear tone and stellar backing. Includes "Rasta Communication", "Bloody Eyes", "I Broke The Comb", "Felt We Felt The Strain", "I'm Not Satisfied", "I'm No Fool", "Musicology and "I Won't Compromise". LP, Vinyl record album

LuciferLucifer ... LP
Invictus, 1971. Very Good- ... $14.99
Wonderfully weird sounds from Lucifer – a record cut during the powerhouse 70s soul years of the Invictus/Hot Wax label, but done with a sound that's much more bluesy and rootsy than any other work for the company! Vocals are by Eugene Smith, who has a cool sort of Bay Area vibe – laidback, and almost folksy at points – snaking easily over the album's backings, which often have this gentle funk approach – but again with a pretty laidback style! Tony Camillo handled some of the arrangements on the record – and brings in some fuller backings that are mighty nice, yet which still suit Lucifer's style strongly – and titles include "Have You Heard", "In A Garden", "Bloodshot Eyes", and "Don't You (Think The Time's A Comin')".

Mahogany BrainWith (Junk-Saucepan) When (Spoon-Trigger) (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Marge/Souffle Continu (France), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $23.99
A really unusual set from early 70s France – a record done for the mostly-jazz imprint Futura Records –but one that seems to also embrace some of the trippier styles of the time too! Most of the music here feels largely improvised – lots of guitar likes that skitter out over bass and percussion – sometimes with vocals, sometimes with other instrumental elements on piano, flute, or violin – and always with this kind of dark, brooding energy that's quite unique! These guys are hardly indulgent proggers, nor balls-out rockers – and instead almost have this close, personal approach that reflects the free jazz scene of the time – but which also has more of a rockish construction to the tunes and their use of vocals. Echo often makes the words sound quite spooky, and overall the album's plenty eerie – and titles include "Screaming Zenith", "Hot Milk Elbow", "Sky Fish", "Bloody Hide & Seek In The Rain", "Universe", and "Head Of Night".

Brian Reitzell30 Days Of Night (colored vinyl) (2015 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Ipecac, 2007. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $38.99
One of more chilling modern horror soundtracks, for the creepy, unflinchingly dark, remote Alaska set 30 Days Of Night! It's composed by Brian Reitzell, whose had a pretty fascinating career – from being a drummer and percussionist for bands as varied as punk/power pop/glam stalwarts Red Kross and French soundcape gurus Air. Like some of his other soundtrack work, there's a moody, almost shoegazy haze to it – but this one is appropriately steeped in eerie, disquieting elements. Includes "Prelude/Last Day Of Sun", "Girl Bait", "Vampires On The Horizon", "The Bloody Fruits Of Barrow", "The One Who Fights", "Daybreak" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Mongo SantamariaMongo Santamaria Explodes At The Village Gate ... LP
Columbia, Late 60s. Very Good ... $5.99
One of Mongo's best Columbia LPs, and a totally hard hitting live set recorded with a very strong Latin jazz feel! The group's got some of Mongo's best players ever – like Hubert Laws and Bobby Porcelli – and the album's got lots of hard horn solos, and a good good groove throughout. Cuts include "Mongoettes", "Bloodshot", "Philadelphia", and a 10 minute long version of "Afro Blue". Screamin, smokin, and one of the purest albums of Latin jazz that Mongo ever made!

✨✧ SupertrampCrime Of The Century ... LP
A&M, 1974. Near Mint- (reissue)... $59.99
Pure mainstream 70s pop genius, the most fully-formed of all early Supertramp albums – and a record that's filled with a surprising amount of great Fender Rhodes moments too! The set's a masterpiece from start to finish – filled with themes of loss and loneliness, but served up by the group with an incredibly redemptive sense of majesty and power – really fresh for the time, and still wonderful all these many years later – despite the fact that so many of these songs have gone onto become classics. The keyboards on the set work perfectly with the oddly-timed rhythms of the tunes – and there's a great blend here between high concept and straight ahead pop – on titles that include "School", "Bloody Well Right", "Asylum", "Dreamer", "Rudy", and "Crime Of The Century".

VariousNuggets – Antipodean Interpolations Of The First Psychedelic Era ... LP
Warner (Australia), 2012. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99
A contemporary collection, but one that really lives up to the spirits of the legendary Nuggets collection – as the artists here each pick a favorite track from that garage and pysch powerhouse, then deliver their own very faithful versions! The set's got an extra special twist – given that it was released at the same time as the wonderful Australian version of Nuggets, which includes many lost Aussie gems from the 60s – and the artists here are all from the contemporary Australian underground, but every bit as awash in fuzz, freak, and echo as their American counterparts from the 60s! Both production styles and instrumentation are very faithful to the original 60s styles – and titles include "Don't Look Back" by Palms, "I Had Too Much To Dream Last Night" by Velociraptor, "Dirty Water" by Pearls, "Psychotic Reaction" by The Murlocs, "Baby Please Don't Go" by Baptism Of Uzi, "My World Fell Down" by Montero, "You're Gonna Miss Me" by The Laurels, "Farmer John" by Bloods, "Hey Joe" by Pond, and "A Public Execution" by Tiny Migrants. 2LP set features more tracks than the CD – and is limited and numbered too!

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

Philips/4 Men With Beards, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ Hubert LawsFlute By-Laws ... LP
Atlantic, 1966. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great little set of Latin jazz – and one of the strongest albums ever from flute man Hubert Laws! At the time of this recording, Laws was playing with Mongo Santamaria's group – and for this second solo outing, he borrows a lot of grooves from Mongo's bag – and also hits a few tasty lines of his own – mixing in even more of those great soul jazz inflections that always made his solos on the Santamaria records for Columbia some of the real highlights of the time. The groove is wonderful throughout – and other players include Chick Corea on piano, Jimmy Owens on trumpet, Garnett Brown on trombone, Benny Powell on tenor, and Bobby Thomas on drums. There's some killer tight Latin numbers with a groovy 60s feel – like "Bloodshot", "Let Her Go", "Baila Cinderella", and "No You'd Better Not" – plus some other tasty jazz numbers like "Mean Lene" and "Strange Girl".

✨✧ Medeski, Martin & WoodEnd Of The World Party (75th Anniversary Edition) ... LP
Blue Note, 2004. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the best records we've heard in years from Medeski, Martin, & Wood – a searing batch of grooves that really gets back to the trio's original brilliance, and which features some wonderful production from the Dust Brothers! There's a lean, hard, and funky sound to the set that struck us a real surprise after some of their recent recordings – a groove that often feels lifted straight off of a 70s funky soundtrack, inflected with some production touches to update the sound slightly, and accommodate a more beat-heavy approach that really helps their style a lot! The album features some guest guitar from Marc Ribot – nice and nasty, in a way that brings a real edge to the tunes – but as usual, it's the blend of keyboards, bass, and drums that push the real charm of the set! Titles include "Shine It", "Curtis", "Ice", "Bloody Oil", "Anonymous Skulls", "End Of The World Party", "Reflector", "Sasa", and "Queen Bee". LP features the vinyl-only bonus track "Whiney Bitches".

Stones Throw, 2000s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
2 tracks recorded in roughly as many years from Quasimoto – maddest of all Madlib personas – in a batch of rarities and unreleased archival cuts that's as fresh and funky as anything 'Lib's delivered in years! Lord Quas is often described as Madlib's id – delivering top notch, but wigged out, if smoke mellowed rhymes that are out of character for Madlib the influential producer. That's fair enough, but we dig it for the smarts, the unshakable funky mood and its roots in sample-based hip hop craftsmanship. Hypotic boombap that'll sound fresh forever – paired mad blunted rhymes! Titles include "Broad Factor", "Seasons Change", "The Front", "Youngblood", "Astronaut", "Planned Attack", "Brothers Can't See Me", "Catchin' The Vibe", "Am I Confused?", "Sparkdala (Original Version)", "Green Power (Original Version)" and "LAX To JFK".
