✨✧ Blood Sweat & Tears3 ... LP
Columbia, 1970. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $3.99
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".

✨✧ Blood Sweat & TearsBlood Sweat & Tears ... LP
Columbia, 1968. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $2.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Blood Sweat & TearsBlood Sweat & Tears 4 ... LP
Columbia, 1971. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $1.99
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".

Cold BloodThriller ... LP
Reprise, 1973. Very Good ... $5.99
A great later album from this legendary San Francisco crossover soul combo! The set moves off the style of some of their earlier work for Reprise, and Cold Blood are really opening up their sound here – still staying quite soulful, but also going for the fuller finish of the west coast early 70s scene – and not trying to sound so much like a straight soul cover band. The shift is a good one – and while the mellower cuts may be a bit too mellow at times, the group's also still got enough of a groove on the best numbers, and makes good use of the studio to work up their funky playing. Includes a nice cover of "Kissing My Love", plus versions of "Baby I Love You", "Sleeping", and "I'll Be Long Gone". LP, Vinyl record album
(Vinyl has some marks that click on Side 2.)

✨✧ 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!

Gene The Southern Child & Parallel ThoughtSouthern Meridian (blood splattered vinyl – with bonus tracks) ... LP
Parallel Thought, 2014. New Copy ... $12.99
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?".

✨✧ Piero PiccioniColpo Rovente (180 gram blood splattered vinyl pressing) ... LP
GDM/Beatball (Korea), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
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
(Limited edition blood splattered vinyl pressing.)

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 ... $11.99
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.

Mainstream, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Supposedly, this is one of the many incarnations of the group that's better known under the names Lafayette Afro-Rock Band and Ice. The material here is more in the vein of work by Ice – in that it's kind of faster Afro-Funk inspired grooves, with bass, guitar, organ, and lots of keyboards in the mix. Cuts include "Avenue Louise", "Kiswahli", "Ewohe Dance", "AIE (A Mawana)", "Aye Mama", "Chicano", and "Jesus He Is My Brother". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Blood Sweat & TearsChild Is Father To The Man ... LP
Columbia, 1968. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ 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

✨✧ Cold BloodSisyphus (180 gram pressing) ... LP
San Francisco, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the best albums ever recorded by this legendary Bay Area funk combo – a key part of that city's crossover scene, and a group who always deserves a second listen! The album's a mixture of Sly Stone funk, Tower Of Power horns, and some of the hard-burning guitar/organ lines of groups like Santana – no surprise, since all 3 powerhouse acts were contemporaries of Cold Blood! The album includes the cut "Your Good Thing", a nice remake of the Hayes/Porter classic that features guest vocals by The Pointer Sisters. Other cuts include the monster 7 minute instrumental jammer "Shop Talk", plus "Funky On My Back", "Too Many People", and "I Can't Stay". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Don CovayHot Blood ... LP
Phonogram, 1974. Used ... 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)".

Les BaxterBarbarian ... LP
American International/So Far Out (UK), 1960. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
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".

The feral final chapters from The Birthday Party – The Bad Seed and Mutiny 12-inch EPs packaged together for the first time ever – along with a never-before-released 7" of with bonus tracks from the Mutiny sessions! If you're initiated, The Birthday Party are the primal forbears of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds – and this pair of final EPs manages to be as brutal as their earlier records, but point the way towards the more composed, less caustic darkness that Nick Cave and Mick Harvey would work up with as Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds. The Bad Seed EP includes "Sonny's Burning", "Wild World", "Fers Of Gun" and "Deep In The Woods". Mutiny includes "Jennifer's Evil", "Mutiny In Heaven", "Swampland" and "Say A Spell". The Mutiny Sessions 7" includes an early version of "The Six Strings That Drew Blood" and "Pleasure Avalanche". LP, Vinyl record album

A late 70s issue of two mid 60s live recordings of Bley's trio recorded in concert in Europe, with either Kent Carter or Mark Levenson on bass, and Barry Altschul on drums. Bley's playing in a mode that reflects ther influence of a number of the more progressive players of the same era, with a free flowing multi-linear improvisational approach, that still maintains a strong emphasis on melody and never gets too frenetic. Witha number of great Annette Peacock compositions, including "Cartoon", "Touching", "Start", "Closer", "Pablo" and lengthy takes on "Blood" and "Mister Joy". Features a rare photo of Bley without a pipe in his mouth inside the gatefold too! LP, Vinyl record album

It took far too long for Cappadonna's Pillage LP to drop – finally hitting the streets in the late 90s – and serving as one of the best Wu related efforts of the last couple years of the decade! The hazy, ominous and pulp cinema Wu sound is trotted out with continued relevance and strong rhymes from Cappa – with the title track, "Slang Editorial", "Run", "Blood On Blood War", "Supa Ninjaz", "Dart Throwing", "Young Hearts", MCF, "South Of The Border", "Everything Is Everything", "Black Boy" and more. 16 tracks in all, with a majority of the production handled by RZA with his Wu Elements.

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".

GazzaraPlay Me My Song – Gazzara Plays Genesis ... LP
Irma (Italy), 2014. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $30.99
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".

✨✧ James William GuercioElectra Glide In Blue ... LP
United Artists, 1973. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $19.99
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.

Steven Hufsteter & OthersKiss Of The Damned (with download) ... LP
Soraya, 1970s/1980s/1990s/2000s. New Copy ... $18.99 24.98
The soundtrack to Kiss Of The Damned – kind of a modern take on the style of sultry European vampire films of the 70s – nicely done by composer Steven Hufsteter and featuring some cool stand-alone songs, too! If you dig seedy 70s cinema and soundtracks as much as we do, you'll recognize from the cover art that the film is an homage to the style of filmmakers Jess Franco, Jean Rollin others – which has gotten some love in recent years, especially for the evocative soundtracks. The film is directed by Xan Cassavetes (daughter of film maverick John Cassavetes) and composer Hufsteter does a terrific job here putting a modern spin on the sexy sounds of 70s – some that would sound right at home on a vintage soundtrack resurrected by Finders Keepers, but others are more clearly contemporary. Also includes cool period songs AND contemporary tunes by the legendary Brigitte Fontaine, Jane Weaver, Acanthus and more! Includes "KOTD Love Theme", "Vapeur", "Bath Of Tears", "Threshold", "Backstage Jazz", "Adieu Vampiers" and more by composer Steven Hufsteter, "Parade Of Blood Red Sorrows" by Jane Weaver, "Le Ciel Est Doux" by Brigitte Fontaine, "Sleeping Beauty (Angiosse Temporelle)" by Acanthus, ""Hexen Leben Langer" by Der Fluch and more.

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".

If you've ever wondered what makes Kenton so great, this is the album to begin with – as it's filled with fantastic original tunes that provide a shimmering solo showcase for work of players like Lee Konitz, Frank Rosolino, and Bill Holman. Titles include "23 N - 82 W", "Young Blood", "Improvisation", and the haunting "Invention For Guitar And Trumpet", which features Sal Salvador and a young Maynard Ferguson. LP, Vinyl record album

Creative World, 1974. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $1.99
Stan Kenton plays Chicago – and a bit of Blood Sweat & Tears as well – taking all the best energy from the young jazz rock generation, and turning it towards the sound of his orchestra for the 70s! There's some totally kicking rhythms here – thanks to the mighty Peter Erskine on drums and Mike Ross on electric bass – both of whom really help open up the tunes right from the start, and give the horn players plenty of energy to soar nicely! There's some added percussion from Ramon Lopez, and Kenton plays piano – but often stays a bit more in the background, to let the younger players groove over the top – on titles that include "First Child", "The Rise & Fall Of A Short Fugue", "Chicago III Suite", and "From Blood Sweat & Tears".

Death Waltz (UK), 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99
Great keyboard work abounds here – in a spare, spooky soundtrack from the early 80s Italian horror scene – a blood-dripping masterpiece from director Lucio Fulcio! Walter Rizzati's music here is heavy on the kinds of electric touches you'd hear from both Goblin or John Carpenter – and often paced at a level that's somewhere between the pair – not as jamming as Goblin, but a bit fuzzier than Carpenter – a blend that makes for some really wonderful numbers that are plenty creepy here on their own – even away from the images on the screen! There's plenty of great bits that creep up on you slowly – and others that jump mercilessly from dark corners – on titles that include "Quella Villa", "I Remember", "Incontro", "Blonk Monster", "Verso Il Terrore", "Voci Dal Terrore", "Tema Bambino", and "Chi Sta Arrivando".

The Saga Continues finds Roger still rocking his trademark effects laden vocals and vamping guitar work well into the middle of the decade – with even tighter syncopated percussion, and funky keys & 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 keys! Tracks include "In The Mix", "Play Your Guitar, Brother Roger", "The Break Song","I Keep Trying", a vocader funk reading of Wilson Pickett's "Midnight Hour", "Bucket Of Blood", "T C Song" and "Girl, Cut It Out".

Taking off from the Stones' take on disco from their previous couple of LPs but keeping a nice rough edge on the proceedings, Jagger and Richards turned in what's probably their last great studio LP. 10 tracks in all, including "Undercover Of The Night", "She Was Hot", "Tie You Up (The Pain Of Love)", "Wanna Hold You", "Feel On Baby", 'too Much Blood", "Pretty Beat Up", "All The Way Down" and "It Must Be Hell". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the original inner sleeve. Cover has light wear & a sticker.)

Huey Piano SmithHavin A Good Time ... LP
Ace, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $11.99
A classic album of raw New Orleans soul from one of the all-time greats! Huey was a key figure who bridged the gap between the rolling sound of 50s Crescent City R&B, and later funky grooves from the 60s. This album's filled with 12 original tracks by Huey – recorded by Ace Records in Jackson, Mississippi – and titles include "Rockin Pneumonia & The Boogie Woogie Flu", "Little Chickee Wah Wah", "Havin A Good Time", "Everybody's Whalin", "We Like Birdland", and "High Blood Pressure".

Larry YoungLawrence Of Newark ... LP
Perception, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Incredible stuff from the jazz underground of Newark! This is one of the rarest albums ever recorded by jazz organist Larry Young – cut for the tiny Perception label during the early 70s, and featuring some of the cream of the New Jersey jazz underground. The album's got playing that bridges a number of Young's different styles – from his straighter soul jazz work at Blue Note, to his harder jamming with Santana and John McLaughlin, to his more fusion oriented albums for Arista. James Blood Ulmer's on guitar, but there's also a large ensemble of excellent players, and lots of other percussion and cool instrumentation that really gives the album an "out there" sound! Titles include "Sunshine Fly Away", "Saudia", "Hello Your Quietness", and "Khalid Of Space". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousLight On The Southside – Photographs Of Chicago Southside Nightlife 1975 to 1977 (hardcover book with 2LP set) ... LP
Numero, Late 70s/2009. New Copy 2LP & Book ... $54.99 59.98
Quite possibly the most beautiful record we've ever seen from the folks at The Numero Group – and that's saying a lot, given the quality of all their top-shelf releases! This beautiful edition features a hardcover book of vintage black and white photographs taken on Chicago's south side in the mid 70s – images of patrons and proprietors from long-lost nite spots that include Perv's House, Pepper's Hideout, The High Chaparral, and The Showcase Lounge – all the kind of clubs that were likely to feature the sort of Chicago funk and soul that Numero's been reissuing for the past few years! The images are amazing – a really rare look into the community that supported this sort of music – caught far far from the mainstream, in placed that were almost even private, compared to more well-travelled entertainment outlets. Photographs come from the collection of Michael Abramson – and are beautifully reproduced on LP-sized pages, in a book that also features some vintage flyers, posters, and business cards from the clubs! And if that's not enough, Numero also throws in some great notes of their own, and a bonus 2LP set with music that includes "I'm A Streaker Baby" by Arelean Brown, "No Better Time Than Now" by Ricky Allen, "The Same One" by Malcolm Simmons, "You Made Me Suffer" by Andrew Brown, "This Is My Prayer" by Lady Margo, "It's A Dream" by Little Ed & The Soundmasters Band, "I Sayed That" by Slim Willis Band, "Bring It Down Front" by Hugh Hawkins, "Womans Lib" by Lucille Spann, "Gimmie Some Of Yours" by Artie White, "Baby" by Walter Butterball Davis, "Is It Because I'm Black (inst)" by Syl Johnson, "Goose Walk" by Little Mack, "Young Blood" by Detroit Jr, "California Lady" by James Kinds & Stack, and "I Learned My Lesson" by Willie Davis. The albums are packaged in their own Numero-like cover – then nestled in a slipcover with the book – a hell of a sweet set at this price, and it also comes with an introduction by Nick Hornby!

Yep Roc, 2014. New Copy 3LP ... $23.99 28.98
An incredible tribute to the legendary Arthur Russell – and maybe one of the coolest collections so far in the Red Hot series! The package features new work dedicated to Russell and born from his tremendous influence in a range of different styles – from club to experimental to underground rock – all performed here by artists who really seem to reflect Russell's best examples in each mode! The mix works well as the styles step on from one to another – and titles include "This Is How We Walk On The Moon" by Jose Gonzalez, "Tell You" by Robyn, "Go Bang" by Hot Chip, "A Little Lost" by Sufjan Stevens, "Lucky Cloud" by Sam Amidon, "You Can Make Me Feel Bad" by Phoshphorescent, "Is It All Over My Face & Tower Of Meaning" by Blood Orange, "Just A Blip" by Richard Reed Parry, "I Couldn't Say It To Your Face" by Glen Hansard, "Close My Eyes" by Redding Hunter, and lots lots more!

BBC/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
Synthy, echoey soundscapes from the BBC Radiophonic Workshop! This mid 70s compilation features a range of tripped out electronic soundtrack music made by workshop veterans Dick Mills (who was responsible for quite a bit of the trippy sounds on Dr. Who), John Baker, Paddy Kingsland, Malcolm Clarke and others – who brilliantly blend jazz, pop and otherwise more conventionally melodic sounds with waves of period electronic atmosphere – with lots of spacey synth! Includes "La Grande Piece De La Fiore De La Rue Delaware" by Malcolm Clarke, "Brio" by John Baker", "Adagio", "Crazy Dazy" and "Major Bloodnok's Stomach" by Dick Mills, "The Panel Beaters" and "World Of Science" by Paddy Kingsland, "Veils And Mirrors" by Glynis Jones, "Kitten's Lullaby" by Roger Limb and more.

Flick (UK), 1987. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
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

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".

Funeral Bonsai WeddingFuneral Bonsai Wedding (with download) ... LP
Kernal Sound, 2014. New Copy ... $8.99
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

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".

Hubert LawsFlute By-Laws ... LP
Atlantic, 1966. Near Mint- ... $5.99
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".

LuciferLucifer ... LP
Invictus, 1971. Very Good- ... $24.99
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".

Columbia, Late 60s. Very Good ... $6.99
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!

VariousNuggets – Antipodean Interpolations Of The First Psychedelic Era ... LP
Warner (Australia), 2012. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $34.99
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!

Part of the strength of the set is the mighty Al Johnson – who provides arrangements here that push the group firmly into a more modern take on harmony soul, and which have a gentle groove that makes for plenty of sweet steppers and mellow midtempo groovers. The vocals are every bit as great as on the earlier albums – just given a brighter setting in which to shine. Titles include "Just Wanna Get The Feel Of It", "She Wants To Hear The Words", "It's Been A Long Time", "Throw A Little Loving My Way", "It's All Been Said Before", and "Don't Stop".

The album's perhaps the group's most jarring – with lots of very noisy passages, and turgid instrumentation used as the backdrop for songstatements on society, work, and life under the coming regime. Titles include "The New Acropolis", "Bloody Ground – Fertile Land", "War Poem", and "The State". LP, Vinyl record album
