Blood Sweat & TearsChild Is Father To The Man ... LP
Columbia, 1968. Very Good- ... $4.99
A wild debut from Blood Sweat & Tears – one of those records that forever changed the face of popular music! The set's noteworthy not just for early vocals from Al Kooper – who was a key part of the group at their start – but also for key production work from a young John Simon – who helped arrange a bit, threw in a few musical touches, and really gave the group some focus on record – of the sort that would continue over the course of man albums. The set's got some added strings at points, and there's even some backup vocals from the duo of Valerie Simpson and Melba Moore. Titles include "Overture", "I Can't Quit Her", "Just One Smile", "Without Her", "My Days Are Numbered", "Morning Glory", and "So Much Love/Underture". LP, Vinyl record album

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.

Masaru SatoThrone Of Blood (white vinyl pressing. ... LP
Doxy (Italy), 1957. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
Masaru Sato's score for the Kurosawa classic Throne Of Blood – music that's every bit as revolutionary as the images on the screen – from a period when the Japanese cinematic scene was really hitting some great new heights! Away from the film on a record like this, Sato's music is even more striking – removed from the narrative, it takes on some modern compositional tones that are really incredible – almost Harry Partch-like in the use of unusual tones, offbeat woodwinds, and organic percussion – at least in some of the less tuneful moments. Other passages have slightly evocative melodies, which then often turn as dark as the story in the film! LP, Vinyl record album

James Blood UlmerAmerica – Do You Remember The Love? ... LP
Blue Note, 1987. Near Mint- ... $6.99
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 UlmerFreelancing ... LP
Columbia, 1981. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A major label set, but one that stays very true to the new ideals that James Blood Ulmer was trying to bring to jazz guitar at the time – a really revolutionary style that moves beyond simple genre conventions, and embraces a whole world of new ideas that would inspire others in the decade to come! Ulmer plays with a real frenzy at points – deep currents that reflect the bluesy touches of his early work in jazz organ combos, but given a skittish energy that reflects his association with the downtown crowd – and which was very fitting for his record with Rough Trade! The core group here features James, bassist Amin Ali, and drummer G Calvin Weston – and some tracks feature work from David Murray on tenor, Oliver Lake on alto, and Olu Dara on trumpet. Titles include "Timeless", "Pleasure Control", "Night Lover", "Happy Time", "Rush Hour", "Stand Up To Yourself", and "High Time". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Blood Sweat & Tears3 ... LP
Columbia, 1970. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Blood Sweat & Tears are really stretching out here – working their already-famous magic through a range of great tunes, both originals and covers – and coming up with some great longer-form expressions of their sound in the process! David Clayton-Thomas is firmly in the lead on vocals – but at points, the instrumentation almost takes over even more – especially on some of the jazz-heavy jam numbers that would go onto shape generations of high school and college music ensembles! Side two features the excellent "Symphony For The Devil/Sympathy For The Devil" suite – and other cuts include "He's A Runner", "The Battle", "Lucretia MacEvil", "Lonesome Suzie", "Fire & Rain", "40,000 Headmen", and "Hi De Ho".

✨✧ Don CovayHot Blood ... LP
Phonogram, 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A nicely rootsy session from Don Covay – one that has him getting past the straighter AM pop of his Superdude I set, and going for a sound that's much more down home and southern! The album reunites Covay with his Jefferson Lemon band – and was recorded in Muscle Shoals, but with production by Don that gets way past the more obvious cliches that were already creeping into the scene at the time. Overall, the sound is surprisingly light and personal – almost intimate at times, with Covay moving into a bit more country soul than on any of his other records. The album also includes a few funkier numbers – like "Rumble In the Jungle", dedicated to the Ali/Frazier fight, and "Gangster Strut" – and other tracks include "Sexy Lady", "Hot Blood", "We Can't Make It No More", "A Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Waste", and "It's Better To Have (And Don't Need)".

✨✧ Fela & Africa 70Sorrow Tears & Blood (180 gram pressing – with bonus download) ... LP
Knitting Factory, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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!

✨✧ James Blood UlmerAre You Glad To Be In America? (UK pressing) ... LP
Rough Trade (UK), 1980. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ James Blood UlmerTales Of Captain Black ... LP
Artists House, 1978. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ ScientistsBlood Red River (with download) ... LP
Numero, 1983. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Swaggering Aussie underground rock from The Scientists – a real blast from the early 80s that's as vital as ever! The group evolved a bit here from their rawer, more classifiably punkish self-titled record. This one manages to presage some of the great indie rock of the 90s and beyond, with a blistering sound and a sly swagger that's still kind of scary. It's the kind of thing we'd hear later on in bands like Scratch Acid – with a bit of a roots rock reverence recalls the Cramps somewhat, along with the murkiness of Funhouse-era Stooges – but we're loathe to keep name dropping a bunch of other bands, because The Scientists really do stand apart. Gnarly, brilliant stuff! Titles include "When Fate Deals Its Mortal Blow", "Burnout", "The Spin", "Rev Head", "Set It On Fire" and "Blood Red River". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Shola Adisa-Farrar & The Florian Pellissier QuartetLost Myself (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Hot Casa (France), 2016. New Copy ... $19.99
We already love the music of Florian Pellisier from his excellent albums on the Heavenly Sweetness label – but we're really over the moon with the group here as they work alongside American singer Shola Adisa Farrar! Shola hails from Oakland, but has a globe-spanning sound to her music that really fits the release of the record on the Hot Casa label – a righteous take on jazz vocal modes that's very open to anything that Pellisier might want to bring to the table – which results in a beautiful record that we might put right up there with our favorite classics by singers like Carmen Lundy or Dee Dee Bridgewater! Like the best from both of those artists, there's a special, soulful sound going on here that's really transcendent – that rare kind of record that really unlocks the full power and potential of jazz vocals, especially when they're given just the right setting. Titles include "Evolution", "I Have A Dream", "Blue Chords", "Going Nowhere", "What A Night", and "Spirit" – plus great versions of "Feeling Good", and Fela's "Sorry Tears & Blood".

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

Les BaxterBarbarian ... LP
American International/So Far Out (UK), 1960. Near Mint- (reissue)... $16.99
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- ... $4.99
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)... $23.99 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".

Ornette ColemanSoapsuds Soapsuds ... LP
Artists House, 1979. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $24.99
One of Ornette's great albums for the obscure Artists House label, and different from the one that he recorded with James Blood Ulmer, which was more of a straight-on Harmelodic work. This one's got him playing a set of tender sensitive duets with bassist and longtime accompanyist Charlie Haden. The set's far from mellow, though, and the two of them work through a great set of material that includes "Sex Spy", "Soap Suds", and the theme to "Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman"!

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".

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".

The set features all classic Strayhorn compositions – played in new versions by Duke and a group that includes Clark Terry, Johnny Hodges, Paul Gonsalves, Aaron Bell, and Jimmy Hamilton. The recording quality is great, and the sound of the album really makes old classics sparkle nicely once again! Titles include "UMMG", "Blood Count", "Boo Dah", "Rain Check", "Day Dream", "All Day Long", and "Lotus Blossom", done in a haunting solo piano version by Duke! LP, Vinyl record album

Ghostface Killah & Adrian YoungeTwelve Reasons To Die ... LP
Linear Labs, 2013. New Copy ... $18.99 20.98
Ghostface Killah and Adrian Younge team up for this most intriguing artist and producer/composer collaboration – one with a promising concept and they deliver in full – shadowboxing their way to a knockout! On the mic tip, Ghostface is in his comfort zone – spitting lyrics laced with martial arts, mafia and supernatural imagery – and doing so with a furious flow and peak precision. Adrian Younge and his Venice Dawn group lay down the sounds – with dusty soul and funk, naturally – but what really pushes this one to a superior level are the unpredictable and ingenious nods to 70s Italian film scores, particularly in the giallo genre. Spooky, echoey keyboards and occasional angelic female backing vocals elevate the vibe and balance the grit. 12 tracks and no filler: "Beware The Stare", "Rise Of The Black Suits", "I Declare War" with Masta Killa, "Blood On The Cobblestones" with U-God & Inspectah Deck, "Rise Of The Ghostface Killah", "Murder Spree" with U-God, Masta Killa, Inspectah Deck and Killa Sin, "Enemies Around Me" with William Hart of the Delfonics, "The Sure Shot (Parts 1 And 2)", "Twelve Reasons To Die" and more.

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. The group features Stephan Crump on bass and Marcus Gilmore on drums – and titles include "Blood Count", "Break Stuff", "Taking Flight", "Work", "Wrens", and "Mystery Woman". LP, Vinyl record album

The sound quality is great – which is important, as Willie's got a style of guitar that's almost lighter in tone than some of his contemporaries – a deft thinness that really comes through well in this presentation of the music, really showing his skill on the strings. Vocals are surprisingly raw at points, making for a real contrast to the guitar – and titles include "I Know His Blood Can Make Me Whole", "Praise God I'm Satisfied", "Dark Was The Night Cold Was The Ground", "When The War Was On", and "Mother's Children Have A Hard Time".

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.

Jim O'RourkeSimple Songs ... LP
Drag City, 2015. New Copy ... $18.99
Subtle grandeur from experimental rock icon Jim O'Rourke! He's pulled off a really incredible trick here – delivering what may very well be his most richly textured and artfully arranged work – but he does that in the form of warm, endearingly straight forward songwriting, rather than free form experimentalism. It's stunning! A lot of people best know O'Rourke for his contributions as a producer and guest member of more famous groups – especially Stereolab and Sonic Youth – and while we can envision the sounds and textures he's brought to others from listening to Simple Songs, we never pegged him as a such a great singer-songwriter before. Even his voice has a surprisingly soulful, almost Cat Stevens like quality. The songs are built around guitar, bass, drums and organ, with subtly layered strings and horns – nothing too out there instrumentation wise, hence the title, but there's nothing simple about it. Hands down one of the greatest rock albums of the decade. Includes "Friends With Benefits", "That Weekend", "Half Life Crisis", "Hotel Blue", "These Hands", "Last Year", "End Of The Road" and "All Your Blood". LP, Vinyl record album

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 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

An early 60s vampire soundtrack – and one that's maybe as creepy for its sweet moments as for its spooky ones! There's almost a vintage vibe to the whole thing – with some orchestrations that begin the score with melodic themes, which then give way to these eerier passages that either feature a theremin or some other similar-sounding instrument – creating these spooky sounds over the warmer melodies – a contrast that's got the same vibe as scenes when a vampire under cover is acting normal, but you know he's going to strike! LP has a great cover, and features 12 tracks from the score, plus a bonus trailer for "Curse Of The Blood Ghouls"! LP, Vinyl record album

The Saga Continues finds Roger still rocking his trademark effects laden vocals and vamping guitar work into the middle of the decade – with even tighter syncopated percussion, funky keys, and sharp synth bursts – sailing in a killer groove throughout! Roger produced the record along with Larry Troutman – and they bring in Maceo Parker for a horn solo and Ohio Player Billy Beck for keyboards as well! Tracks include a vocoder funk reading of Wilson Pickett's "Midnight Hour", plus "In The Mix", "Play Your Guitar Brother Roger", "The Break Song", "I Keep Trying", "Bucket Of Blood", "T C Song", and "Girl Cut It Out".

ScientistScientist Rids The World Of The Evil Curse Of The Vampires ... LP
Greensleeves/Dub Mir, 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
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".

Alvarius (Francesco Zampaglione/Andrea Moscianese)Tulpa – Perdizioni Mortali (with bonus CD) ... LP
Cinedelic (Italy), 2013. New Copy ... $16.99
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

Deep PurpleDeep Purple In Rock (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Warner, 1970. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99 21.98
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

Funeral Bonsai WeddingFuneral Bonsai Wedding (with download) ... LP
Kernal Sound, 2014. Sealed ... $1.99
A rock record, at least from the vocal standpoint – but a set that's also got a very strong grounding in jazz – thanks to a lineup that includes Jason Adasewicz on vibes, Frank Rosaly on drums, and Jason Roebke on bass! Steve Dawson is in the lead on vocals – and has a raspy sound that's compelling, and almost in a Bloodshoot Records sort of vein – but the use of the other instrumentalists in the quartet, especially Adasewicz, really gives the album a unique flavor – and the loping modal rhythms mixed with vibes almost recall the spirit of some of Tim Buckley's best late 60s work. Titles include "Confusion", "In The Valley Of The Whale", "Ezra Pound & The Big Wood River", "The Night Of The Liquor Store Fire", and "Anywhere You Landed". LP, Vinyl record album

Mahogany BrainWith (Junk-Saucepan) When (Spoon-Trigger) (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Marge/Souffle Continu (France), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $18.99
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".

White LightninWhite Lightnin ... LP
Island, 1975. Very Good ... $6.99
A pretty soulful batch of rock tracks – produced by Felix Pappalardi, with that compressed and slightly funky sound of later work by The Rascals, as well as some of the "singing in the range of the guitar" mode of Thin Lizzy. Overall, there's no real standout funk tracks – but there's definitely an understanding of funk underlying the whole thing – making it stand out from the pack of this sort of set! Titles include "Joke's On You", "Return To The Underground", "Bloody Tears", "Wild In The Streets", "T In Trouble", and "Danger". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousJackie Brown (180 gram yellow vinyl pressing) ... LP
London/Rhino, Early 70s/1997. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 21.98
A great little soundtrack that really matches the spirit of the film – Quentin Tarantino's own blacksploitation soundtrack – served up here as a mix of classics from the 70s, plus a few special tracks recorded just for the movie! The cover's got a great badass look, and the record features a few incidental moments from the film – and titles include "Across 110th Street" by Bobby Womack, "Strawberry Letter 23" by Brothers Johnson, "Who Is He (And What Is He To You)" by Bill Withers, "Didn't I Blow Your Mind" by The Delfonics, "The Lions and The Cucumbers" by The Vampire Sound Inc, "Monte Carlo Nights" by Elliot Easton's Tiki Gods, "Natural High" by Bloodstone, "Midnight Confessions" by Grass Roots, "Inside My Love" by Minnie Riperton, "Street Life" by Randy Crawford, and "Long Time Woman" by Pam Grier!

Loma/Future Days, Mid 60s. New Copy ... $18.99 22.99
60s soul treasures – served up here in glorious mono – all as part of this wonderful tribute to the legendary Loma Records label! Loma was a small imprint that was part of Warner Brothers in the late 60s – and acted more like an LA-based indie label, with a quality level that rivals the best from New York, Detroit, and Chicago at the time – even Memphis, given that Loma had a surprisingly great ear for deep soul – in a way that few west coast imprints had during the 60s. The mix of modes here is wonderful – from upbeat groovers, to female soul killers, to some especially hard-burning male vocal numbers – in a set list that includes "The Dam Busted" by Carl Hall, "You Can't Outsmart A Woman" by Kell Osborne, "Too Late" by JJ Jackson, "Good Time" by The Mighty Hannibal, "Help Yourself" by Larry Lester, "Callin" by Lonnie Youngblood, "Your Search is Over" by Walter Foster, "Rainin In My Heart" by The Olympics, "There's Something On Your Mind (part 1)" by Baby Lloyd, and "Try" by Lorraine Ellison.

VariousStax Of Funk Vol 2 – More Funky Truth ... LP
Stax/BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $19.99
A mountain of funk from one of the greatest soul labels of all time! Stax is known round the world over for their soulful work – by singers like Otis Redding or Carla Thomas, and instrumental tunes by Booker T & The MGs – but the label was also quite a funky powerhouse – especially as the 60s drew to a close, and the management of the company got a lot hipper, and a heck of a lot more musically open-minded! This killer batch of tracks features 21 numbers from those days – including many obscure and funky tunes that only ever came out on singles, or which were recorded by artists that never made it as big as Stax stars from earlier years. The result of all that obscurity is an extremely fresh selection of tracks – plenty of down-n-dirty funky 45 numbers, played by hip Memphis combos, and featuring some really deep soul vocals. Titles include "Dark Skin Woman" by Sir Mack Rice, "Ain't No Sin" by John Kasandra, "Bump & Boogie" by The Wrecking Crew, "Shame On The Family Name" by Calvin Scott, "Cool Strut" by Bernie Hayes, "Bump Mean" by Sir Mack Rice, "Soul Machine" by Reggie Milner, "How Can You Mistreat The One You Love" by Katie Love, "Cold Blooded" by The Bar Kays, "Do The Side Saddle" by Rufus Thomas, "Stay Away From That Monkey" by Jimmy McCracklin, "Them Hot Pants" by Lee Sain, "Devil In A Man" by Stu Gardner, "Circuits Overloaded" by Inez Foxx, "From Toys To Boys" by The Emotions, "Got It Together (parts 1 & 2)" by Rudy Robinson & The Hungry Five, and "Crosscut Saw" by Albert King.

Warner, 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ CommonLike Water For Chocolate ... LP
MCA/Def Jam, 2000. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

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!

✨✧ BloodstoneNatural High ... LP
London, 1972. Used ... Out Of Stock
Seminal work from Bloodstone – an album that may be the group's best-remembered effort, and for good reason too! The album sets a whole new standard for harmony soul in the 70s – one that's tighter than some of the east coast groups, yet never too slick or polished – kind of a slow-building style that's filled with warmth, but has some trippier elements on the funky cuts too – a really great mashing of styles that instantly set Bloodstone apart from their contemporaries! At one level, the group seem to channel the fragile sounds of The Moments/Whatnauts – but at another, they pick up the heavier vibe of the Norman Whitfield-produced groups – with lots of bass at the bottom, and some psych soul production. The album includes their monster track "Natural High", which has some killer harmonies, plus other nice ones like "You Know We've Learned", "Peter's Jones", "Ran It In The Ground", and "Tell It To My Face".

✨✧ BloodstoneWe Go A Long Way Back ... LP
CBS, 1982. Used ... Out Of Stock
A killer late set by Bloodstone – one that holds on to all the excellent harmonies they brought to their 70s work, but which pushes their groove forward in a whole new direction! There's a warm modern glow to the set – one that works perfectly with the vocals – and the quintet still have a hell of a way with a ballad – singing in that slow-tripping style that was never too overly emotive, yet could pack a hell of a punch back in the day – especially in the wee hours! The tunes here are longer than before, and inflected by some rich arrangements by both the Isley Brothers and McKinley Jackson – and the set's got an Isleys-like approach by putting all the ballads on one side, and the groovers on another. These groovers really hold onto the harmonies wonderfully – making for a great follow-up to the ballads – and titles include the sublime smooth stepping track "We Go A Long Way Back", plus "Go On & Cry", "How Does It Feel", "Nite Time Fun", "My Love Grows Stronger", and "My Kind Of Woman".

A&M/Mobile Fidelity, 1974. Used ... Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ VariousBollywood Bloodbath – The B-Music Of The Indian Horror Film Industry ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), Late 60s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
One of the wildest, most stylistically panoramic and awe-inspiring Bollywood collections we've ever heard – seriously, leave all expectations you might have about about Indian film music compilations at the door – this Finders Keepers set culled from decades of Bombay horror soundtracks is a major eye-opener! Bollywood Bloodbath features work by some of the best and most creative composers and performers from the Bollywood landscape – RD Burman, Laxmikant Pyarelal, Bappi Lahiri and others – and the range of years in which the material was pulled allows for a heck of a lot of styles to come in and out of play. What's great about it is that there's really nothing in the way of cliched horror movie music going on here – it's seedy, brilliantly fused mix of timeless Indian music, psychedelia, funk, disco, feverish percussion, sometimes beautiful and sometimes eerie female vocals and more. There's an oddly foreboding vibe and wigged out screams and more to clue you in once in a while that we're in the horror genre, but not in any kind of predictable way. Incredible! Finders Keepers has raised the bar once again! 22 tracks in all: "Sannata Theme" by Rajesh Roshan, "Sansani Khez Koi Baat", by Hemant Bhosle, "Meri Jaaan" by Bappi Lahiri, "Theme Music From Anita" by Laxmikant-Pyarelal, "Main Theme From Andhera/Darwaza" by Sapan Jagmohan, "Disco Title Music From Dahshat" by Bappi Lahiri, "Bindya Tarse Kajra Barse" by RD Burman and more.
