Black MilkIf There's Hell Below ... LP
Computer Ugly, 2014. New Copy 2LP ... $20.99
Detroit producer/MC double threat Black Milk doing his thing as sharply as on anything he's done in the past few years! He's certainly at a near peak on the production tip here – which is saying something, given how high up on the top shelf of post millenium hip hop production he sits – and he frames his own and the guests rhymes strongly. It's not as deathly dark as you might think given the title, but If There's A Hell Below does indeed have a mood – and the title include "Everyday Was" feat Mel, "What's It Worth", "Quarter Water" featuring the legendary Pete Rock, "Hell Below" feat Gene Obey, "Leave The Bones Behind" feat Blu & Ab, "Scum" feat Random Axe, "Gold Piece" feat Bun B, "Grey For Summer", "Up & Out" and more.

✨✧ Bumblebee UnlimitedSting Like A Bee ... LP
RCA, Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A spacey Patrick Adams/Greg Carmichael dance classic – and very much in the P&P disco mode! The record's filled with extended club cuts that have a lot of keyboards and electronics, and although the lyrics are a bit silly at times, the groove is rock solid – with that amazing funky disco sound that was sort of a precursor to the house grooves of the 80s. Adams and Carmichael are on keyboards – and vocalists include Donna Green and Leroy Burgess. Nice all the way through – and tracks include "Lady Bug", "I Love You", "Honey Bun", "Space Shuttle Ride", and "I Got A Big Bee". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ CokeCoke ... LP
Sound Triangle, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Funky Latin breaks and very groovy grooves – the kind of record that you hear for only a second, and say "oh yeah, this is the stuff!" Coke were an obscure Florida combo who mixed together Latin, funk, and soul – served up in a crossover style that's halfway between the sound of the NuYorican generation and the heavier hitters of LA's Chicano funk scene! Instrumentation includes organ, guitar, and trumpets – and vocals are delivered in a brown eyed soul style that burns nicely with the heavier grooves of the group. But best of all is the drummer, who really kicks it large on the kit – and creates some really nice funky numbers on the set! Includes the break classic "Na Na", plus the tunes "Got To Touch Your Face", "Te Amo Mas", "Quiero Decirte", "Bang Bang", "Bun Bun Bun", "You Turn Me On", and "Que Seria De Mi". A really great album – with a totally unique sound! LP, Vinyl record album

AshburyEndless Skies ... LP
Rockadrome, 1983. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
A hard rocker from the Arizona scene of the early 80s – recorded by a bunch of cats who've clearly not let the rise of punk faze them at all – as the set has a sound that's confidently set smack dab in the middle of the 70s! The guitars are strong, yet far from any sort of metal modes – and instead, these guys have a rockish confidence that's quite stunning, given the indie obscurity of the record – kind of the power of the best bigger label guitar hero bands of the mid 70s, but without any of the attitude or commercial tones. A great discovery, from guys who should have been huge – and titles include "The Warning", "Twilight", "Vengeance", "Madman", "Endless Skies", and "No Mourning". LP, Vinyl record album
(Comes with a bonus insert and poster too!)

John Rabbit Bundrick & Johnny Nash/Bob MarleyVill Sa Garna Tro (Want So Much To Believe) – Vol 2 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Mellotronen (Sweden), 1971. New Copy ... $9.99
Amazing sounds from a rare Swedish film – noteworthy not just for the end result, but for the lineup of people who were part of the process! The movie itself starred rising soul star Johnny Nash – in the lead in a tale about interracial romance – and although Johnny sings on the score, his style is also quite different than his own music of the time – as his voice is set to really cool, complicated backdrops from John "Rabbit" Bundrick – who was part of a floating scene that included Nash and Bob Marley, with a better-known later stop in London. The film and music came together out of an almost communal vibe – with Bundrick's music at the core, plus some lyrics from Nash, and instrumentation from a lineup that includes Bob Marley on guitar, alongside local talents Janne Schaffer and Bjorn Linder – plus percussion from the great Reebop Kwaku Bah, who'd worked with Can and Traffic – as well as lots of Fender Rhodes and organ from Bundrick. Some tunes have a loose, percussive feel – others are more song structured with a lot of guitar – and the whole package comes with a great set of notes to tell the tale of the music and the movie. Titles on this second volume include "Mine All Mine", "Fire Sequence", "Live In The Country (inst)", "Song In Ferry Boat Sequence", "Church Tune", "Love Scene", and "Harp II". LP, Vinyl record album

Bunny Lion (Puddy Roots)Red (with bonus download) ... LP
Starlight/Fantasy Memory, 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 21.98
Rare work from Bunny Lion – aka Puddy Roots, a crucially overlooked reggae vocalist of the time! The rhythms here all come from Linval Thompson tracks – and the set was licensed by Linval himself – but the real attraction is the vocals, which have these cool, compelling ways of arching up and down over the grooves – almost more London extrapolation than pure Jamaican roots, but we mean that in the best way possible! The album was briefly issues on the London label Starlight, but gets its first appearance here with real credit to Puddy – on tracks that include "Rat Trap", "Bubbling Dub", "Bunny Lion At The Control", "Natty Rise & Shine", "Ilie", "Go Rockers", and "Heart & Soul".

✨✧ Jimmy Castor BunchIt's Just Begun ... LP
RCA, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Wickedly fuzzy funk! Jimmy Castor recorded in a lot of different styles during the 70s – but the one he used on this album is still his best! The record's a non-stop guitar-heavy batch of classic funk tracks – and it features the storming break track "It's Just Begun", the funky goofy "Troglodyte", and plenty other nice moments like "Bad", "LTD", "I Promise To Remember", and "Psychee". Fuzzy guitar meets heavy drums meets some of the most insane lyrics ever on a mainstream funk album! One of our most requested records – and for good reason! If you've ever bought a lousy Jimmy Castor album – throw it away, and buy this one! LP, Vinyl record album

Gene ChandlerDuke Of Earl (Vee Jay) ... LP
Vee Jay, Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A sweet soul classic from the young Gene Chandler! The record is built around Gene's hit "Duke Of Earl" – and it features Gene in a ridiculous looking "Duke" costume on the cover – but the record's a great one overall, and features some excellent late-night soul material in a sweet tenor-voiced harmony style! Bill Bunky Sheppard produced the record, and it's got a sophisticated approach that offers a number of different modes for Gene to shine – heartbreaking ballads, rousing uptempo numbers, and some cool exotic tunes. Titles include "Nite Owl", "So Many Ways", "Lonely Island", "Kissin In The Kitchen", "I Wake Up Crying", "Turn On Your Love Light", and "Daddy's Home". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Willie ColonEl Malo ... LP
Fania, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Great stuff – and a very sharp album cut by Willie during the Latin soul era, featuring a bunch of tracks that veer more towards the boogaloo side of things than his later albums! The groove is nice and hard – stripped down with the youthful energy that Willie brought to the scene at the time – and the record features great vocals by Hector Lavoe, Yayo El Indo, and Elliot Romero. Features the wonderful piano-bassed groover – "Jazzy" – which spirals out with descarga-like energy! Other great tracks include the boogaloo numbers "Skinny Papa", "Willie Baby", "Willie Whopper", and "El Malo" – but the whole album's a winner! LP, Vinyl record album

Gal Costa & Gilberto GilLive In London 1971 ... LP
Polysom (Brazil), 1971. New Copy 3LP (reissue)... $64.99
Really stunning stuff – a never-heard live performance from early 70s London – one that features Gilberto Gil in exile, working alongside the great Gal Costa! The album's got a lean, stripped-down feel – similar acoustic instrumentation to both Gilberto Gil and Caetano Veloso's London recordings – a mode that's an especially great change from some of Costa's more produced albums of the period – at a level that really lets us hear how warmly collaborative and high spirited she could be! Both Gal and Gilberto play guitar – and backing is by a group of bass, percussion, and drums – the last of which are played by Tutty Moreno – and the performance has the singers working solo and in duet – the latter of which is especially great! The set includes a few English language numbers – "Brand New Dream" and "One O'Clock Last Morning 20th April 1970" – plus versions of "Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band" and "Up From The Skies". And other titles include "Sai Do Sereno", "Coracao Vagabundo", "Procissao", "Acaua", "Chuva Suor E Cerveja", "Viramundo", "Como Dois E Dois", and "Maria Bethania/Bota A Mao Nas Cadeiras".

Escorts3 Down 4 To Go ... LP
Alithia, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A great album of sweet soul – and one recorded by a bunch of prisoners at the Rahway Correctional Facility! This was the group's second album, and by this point, three of the members had left prison – hence the "3 Down, 4 To Go" title – but that change in status doesn't stop the group from being as great as they are on their debut – and as before, George Kerr produced the set, and gives the whole thing a sweet New Jersey harmony soul sound – one to rival the best groups of the All Platinum/Stang era! Tracks include "Disrespect Can Wreck", "Corruption", "Brother", "We've Gone Too Far To End It Now", "La La Means I Love You", "The Shoo Nough", and "Let's Make Love (At Home Sometimes)". (Makes you wonder where else they're making love!) LP, Vinyl record album

FallSchtick – Yarbles Revisited ... LP
Beggars Banquet, Mid 80s. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 21.98
The Fall at their peak – with some incredible singles, a rarity or two, and some incredible live BBC recordings – all from right around the time of This Nation's Saving Grace LP! We'd argue that The Fall was recording the best material of their career during this period, somehow balancing tuneful, if still pretty damn jagged postpunk with spontaneous changes and genuinely catchy hooks – even if Mark E Smith's speak-singing lyricism was as surly as ever! Includes the studio recorded singles "Couldn't Get Ahead", "Rollin' Dany", "Petty (Thief) Lout", "Cruiser's Creek", "Vixen" and "Ma Riley" – plus a bunch of incredible 1985 John Peel show live recordings on the other side – including "Gut Of The Quantifer", "Spoilt Victorian Child", "LA" LP, Vinyl record album

Funk IncChicken Lickin' ... LP
Prestige/BGP (UK), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $15.99
Funky organ, hard tenor sax, and plenty of choppy guitar make this another jazz funk gem in the crown of the legendary Funk Inc! The group are still totally at the top of their game here – stepping out with a deep, soulful Indy-bred blend of jazz and funk – a groove that was easily one of the hippest going in the early 70s Prestige Records scene – and that's saying a lot, given the company the label was keeping at the time! The record's got one track that features some nice soulful vocals – the political cut "Let's Make Peace & Stop The War" – but the best cuts are the instrumentals, grooving along hard in the band's best modal funky tradition! Titles include "The Better Half", "Jung Bungo", and "Running Away". LP, Vinyl record album

John Lee HookerCountry Blues Of John Lee Hooker (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Prestige/Original Blues Classics, 1959. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.98
The legendary John Lee Hooker, heard here in one of his more obscure recordings from the late 50s – at least in contrast to his famous sides for Vee Jay Records! This set's an unusual date – recorded in Detroit, despite the claim of the title – and featuring Hooker on acoustic guitar and vocals, without any other instrumentation at all – pitched much more towards the growing folk blues scene than some of his more familiar Chicago recordings. Tracks are short, but pack plenty of punch – and titles include "Black Snake", "I Rowed A Little Boat", "Bundle Up & Go", "Behind The Plow", "Water Boy", "Tupelo Blues", and "Pea Vine Special".

Columbia/Drastic Plastic, 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $27.99
David Johansen wipes off the lipstick and kicks off his heels for this first solo set –sans drag, we're left with a normal looking dude – and one hell of a great, still glam-sounding record that's right up there in excellence with his New York Dolls canon! Wow, is this ever underrated. David would eventually go on the tweak his style and persona in a bunch of different ways, to varying creative and commercial success. Here he's just out to make a kickass rock and roll record as he'd done with the dolls, sans the wardrobe and junkie hijinks, but with all the blistering rock guitar and gritty R&B influences. This one really blazes! Includes "Funky But Chic", "Girls", "Not That Much", "Donna", "I'm A Lover" and "Frenchette". LP, Vinyl record album

George JonesGrand Ole Opry's Newest Star (with download) ... LP
Starday/Reserve, 1957. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 19.98
A really early record by a young, fresh-faced George Jones – his full length debut, actually – released in 1957 by Starday, not too long after his debut appearance at the Grand Ole Opry! George had been recording some artistically promising, if underselling singles for a couple years prior, including the now legendary rockabilly sides (on which he was billed as "Thumper" Jones), but this was his first full length showcase as a rising country singer. The title is pure showbiz, as George wouldn't be a big star for a couple more years. He was ready, though! The songs are great, and he wrote or co-wrote most of 'em – and oh man, that VOICE – this is where the legend begins, people! Includes the early classic "Why, Baby, Why", and a whole bunch of great tunes, including "You Gotta Be My Baby", "Ragged But Right", "It's OK", "Still Hurtin'", "Boat Of Life", "Let Him Know", "Play It Cool" and more.

Bunny LeeFull Up – Early Reggae Productions 1968 to 1972 ... LP
Pressure Sounds (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2 LPs ... $23.99
Mindblowing sounds from the great Bunny Lee – and exactly the kind of collection that makes us love the Pressure Sounds label so much! The track selection is wonderful – and most numbers are balanced in a unique space between reggae and rocksteady, and often have some crucial influences from American soul and funk as well – but they come across with a mode that's very different from more standard reggae, especially the style of the music that would be more codified a few years later. Instead, there's a really rich sense of experimentation here – as Bunny Lee and his All Stars work on instrumental tracks, or alongside other key artists like Delroy Wilson, Rico Rodriguez, Tommy McCook, U Roy, or Winston Williams. Some tunes have amazingly trippy touches – and a few points even mix in some wild moog too – and titles include "Double Attack", "Ivan Itler The Conqueror", "Scarface", "Joe Lewis", "War", "Wet Vision", "When I Get My Freedom", "Smooth & Sorts", and "Death Rides A Horse".

Shawn LeeSoul In The Hole ... LP
Ubiquity, 2009. New Copy ... $12.99 16.98
The most deeply soulful record we've ever heard from Shawn Lee – a massive tribute to the soul sounds of the 60s and 70s, served up with help from a host of hip singers who include Darondo, Nicole Willis, Karime Kendra, and Fanny Franklin! Lee's grooves are as funky as ever, but the instrumentation's also a bit fuller too – touched with elements of 60s Motown, Memphis, and Muscle Shoals – produced perfectly, and delivered with a depth that we hardly would have expected from Shawn a few short years ago! The album's a real revelation – one that grabs us with a similar surprise as Jazzanova's excellent Of All The Things – which is another set that gets a classic soul sound as right as this one. Most tracks are Lee originals, but so well penned, you'd swear they were 60s soul tracks you'd forgotten about – titles that include "Soul In The Hole", "Land Of Soul", "Too Tired To Sleep", "Playboy Bunny", "Time To Say Goodbye", "The Stuff", "Something", "Whatever Side You're On", and "Jigsaw".

The fun fun soundtrack to Rock 'N' Roll High School – that gloriously, knowingly trashy Roger Corman produced movie vehicle for the Ramones! Of course The Ramones are all over the soundtrack, but it's got a bunch of 70s new wave and hard rock from Devo, Eno, Nick Lowe, Todd Rundgren and more. Includes "Rock N Roll High School", "I Want You Around", a medley of "Blitzkrieg Bop", "Pinhead", "California Sun" and more by The Ramones, "Come Back Jonee" by Devo, "Energy Fools The Magician" by Eno, "So It Goes" by Nick Lowe, "School Days" by Chuck Berry, "School's Out" by Alice Cooper and more.

20th Century/Universal, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
Holy Soundtracks! Of all the knock-off Batman albums from the 60s, this one's the only legit soundtrack to the Batman TV show – and it's way way better than any other piece of vinyl with the Batman logo at the time! The album is every bit as great as you might think – as it's got the full flavor of the campy television classic – with loads of the original music from the show – the themes you remember, as you heard them, and not a bunch of watered-down tracks inspired by the show – plus (and this is the best part!), the record has loads of dialogue from the TV show in between the tracks – cool exclamations from Adam West, Burt Ward, and others – which makes listening to the record as fun as watching the show! Titles include "Batman Pows The Penguin", "Batman Riddles The Riddler", "Gotham City", "Batman Thaws Mr Freeze", and "To The Batmobile!" LP, Vinyl record album

Big Beat (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $19.99
Wow! If you think you have a pretty good handle on the breadth of late 60s west coast girl group and/or protopunk garage rock scenes, and you haven't heard of She, prepare to have your minds blown! She is an all girl group with roots in the mid 60s Cali scene, starting out as The Hairem with a sound that's sweet and crude at the same time – raw rhythms, gritty organ grooves and sweetly feminine vocals, though still laced with attitude. We're SO pleased to finally hear them, if a little embarrassed that we haven't been singing their praises all along. Includes "Out Of Reach", "Piece Of You", "Roll On", "Don't Go Home Tonight", "Bad Girl", "Braids Of Hair", "Lonely Boy Of Laughter" and more – plus bunch of primal early cuts recorded as The Hairem – including "Like A Snake", "Hey You", "Not For Me", "Come On Along" and "Bus Stop". 14 in all.

Attack/Jamaican Recordings (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $15.99
The attack is sharp here, but the decay is what really moves us – that slow fade and spacey sound that makes classic dubs like this so great! The package pulls together lots of rare tracks from the Attack label of Bunny Lee – most with music by The Aggrovators, and a whole extra level of sound and space from the production – which really abstracts the core elements in this totally great way! Tunes include dubs of work by Linval Thompson, Johnny Clarke, Cornell Campbell, Barry Brown, and others – and titles include "Don't Cut Off Your Dub", "A Dancing Roots Version", "Dance With Me Baby", "I'm Gone Dub", "Money Dub", "The Meduca", and "Easy Skanking Version".

VariousBest Arizona Garage Bands 1967 to 1970 ... LP
HDM, Late 60s. New Copy ... $16.99 18.98
A stunningly strong set of underground work from the Arizona scene of the late 60s – material originally produced by Hadley Murrell, who'd go onto become a big soul and funk force in the 70s – but who has a surprisingly great ear for freaky, fuzzy sounds in these early years! The collection is clustered around a small handful of bands – any of whom could easily go head to head with the best of the Sunset Strip scene of the time – and who come across here with a bold, clear vision that's hardly just hinterland copycat of the big sounds of the charts – and instead shows some very inventive styles that remind us of the coolest Texas psych of the period. Titles include "Dive Bomber" and "Renegade" by the Carnations, "Simply Sunday" and "Just Can't Win" by The Sect, "Lovin Just My Style" and "Self Service" by The Caravelles, "Believing You" and "She's So Fine" by Noble & The Matadors, and "Hippies & Cops & A Bunch Of Rocks" and "Ride The Ship Of Fools" by Bliss.
