✨✧ CokeCoke ... LP
Sound Triangle, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
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

BahamadiaKollage ... LP
Chrysalis/Universal, 1996. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.99
Not one filler track this strong debut LP from one of the dopest MCs of the 90s! There's jazzy soul pedigree to the production that pairs perfectly with her rhymes, with excellent use of samples – a mode that was falling out of mainstream fashion by this point in the decade, but it's fresh as ever even now. An underrated classic! Beats by Primo, Guru, the Beatminerz, the Roots, Ski and others. Tracks include "True Honey Buns", "I Confess", "Word Play", "UKNOWHOWWEDU", "Three The Hard Way" with , "Da Jawn" with the Roots, "3 Tha Hard Way", "Biggest Part Of Me", "Innovation", "Rugged Ruff", "Total Wreck", "Spontaneity" and more.

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

Vic ChesnuttDrunk (180 gram pressing – with bonus tracks & download) ... LP
New West, 1993. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $29.99 30.98
One of Vic's best albums! Drunk isn't quite as sparely furnished, production wise as his first couple albums, but it's still on the right side of spare – often with voice and guitar, so Vic's one-of-a-kind vocals and storytelling are front-and-center. There's almost stream of consciousness structure to the songs, but when you really listen it's easy to tell that he's not just strumming and breathing words, there's some serious soul searching, as well as keen insight into rural American human nature, even in the most fragmentary observations. He's not for everybody, but once you open up to his distinctive sound, you might come to think of him as one of the true and rare originals. Includes "Sleeping Man", Bourgeois And Biblical", "One Of Many", "Super Tuesday", "Naughty Fatalist", "Kiss My A**, "Dodge", "Gluefoot" and more. This beautiful 2017 2LP version on New West as bunch of bonus tracks, too – nearly a full LPs worth! LP, Vinyl record album
(180 gram vinyl with insert, download and 13 bonus tracks. Very nicely done!)

De La SoulAnd The Anonymous Nobody (with download) ... LP
AOI, 2016. New Copy 2LP ... $28.99
A major later career creative win for De La Soul – a mind-bogglingly diverse, frequently brilliant record that manages to rival their best early work in stylistic breadth! This one's an epic – a 17 track, nearly 70 minute opus that finds De La working with an eclectic group of collaborators on a project that finds them hinting at past glories – be it the laidback jazzy production of the immediate post-"D.A.I.S.Y Age" to their impressive, genre-defying collaborations with the Gorillaz and others – but it's very much a fresh effort with nary a whiff of nostalgia. It's a grower, too – a record you'll need to listen to a bunch of times to really get to the heart of it – and in a post-millennium age of instant gratification, you REALLY gotta hand it to Pos, Dave and Mase for defiantly making a true blue L(ong)P(layer) Titles include "Genesis" with Jill Scott, "Royalty Capes", "Nosed Up", "Pain" with Snoop Dogg, "Memory Of...(US)" with Estelle & Pete Rock, "Snoopies" with David Byrne, "Greyhounds" with Usher, "Drawn" with Little Dragon, "Whoodeeni" with 2Chainz, "Here In After" with Damon Albarn and more.

✨✧ Serge GainsbourgVu De L' Exterieur (180 gram pressing – with download) ... LP
Philips/Mercury (France), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
A great Serge Gainsbourg album from 1973 – one that we'd rank right up there with his best work! The record's got a slinky funky groove that's right in a perfect post-Melody Nelson mode – music written by Serge, and played by a hip small combo that includes lots of great guitar from Alan Parker and sweet electric keyboards and organ from the great Alan Hawkshaw – both of whom really help keep the sound great! Many tracks have that mellow funk groove that's become the best-remembered Gainsbourg sound over the years – and as with many of his other albums of the time, this one's brimming over with potential samples and riffs to steal. Titles include "Panpan Cucul", "Sensuelle Et Sans Suite", "Pamela Popo", "Titicaca", and "Par Hasard Et Pas Rase". Nice cover, too, with Serge pictured amidst a bunch of photographs of monkeys!

Bunny LeeFull Up – Early Reggae Productions 1968 to 1972 ... LP
Pressure Sounds (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2 LPs ... $23.99 24.98
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".

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

Jerzy MilianWhen Where Why – 1972 to 1979 DDR Big Band Grooves ... LP
GAD (Poland), 1970s. New Copy ... $26.99
Great vibes from Jerzy Milian – a player who was easily one of the hippest cats to handle a vibraphone on the European continent in the 70s – heard here in a host of rare recordings from Berlin! Jerzy's Polish, and most of his work was done for the Polskie Nagrania label – but these tracks offer up a very different side of his talents than usual – some very cool, very groovy tunes that have a fantastic feel throughout – somewhere between late 60s Verve, hip Italian soundtracks, and some of the groovier projects on MPS – all reference points that really make this collection a treasure to our ears! All tunes were written and arranged by Milian – and many have a focus on the fuller ensemble instead of just his vibes – a very generous spirit to guide them. Titles include "Bagira", "Signor Cosmalino", "Wo Ist Die Socke", "Acht Und Dreizig", "Die Bunte Balkone", "Der Lustige Witwer", and "Mademoiselle Horror". LP, Vinyl record album

Ogoya Nengo & The Dodo Women's GroupOn Mande (with bonus download) ... LP
Tal, 2016. New Copy ... $13.99
An album that features vocal performances from Ogoya Nengo and her group – but one that also expands the groove a bit with some great added percussion at times – which really expands the energy of the record past the all-acapella passages! The vocals here are a lot more earthy and timeless than some of the warmer harmonies you might know from the South African scene and often Ogoya or a single member of the group gets a chance to shine in the solo spotlight – recorded in a very up-close style that makes every vocal shape and texture extremely powerful – so much so, there's a vibrancy to the record that goes beyond any need for linguistic understanding or even cultural context. The mixture of acoustic strings and percussion in some of the instrumentation also makes the performance feel even more compelling – and titles include "Wololo Josiaya", "Chur", "Jawend Peke", "Nyiero", "On Monday", "Elias Owino", "Wende Peke", and "Bunde Kod Asili".

Augustus PabloAugustus Pablo At King Tubby's (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Attack/Radiation Roots (Italy), Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99
Augustus Pablo at his trippy best – blowing the melodica over a host of sweet dubby rhythms all produced by Bunny Lee! In the hands of Pablo, the instrument seems like it was made to be used best in dub – as the "wind piano" has this sound that's as personal and mystical as the rhythms that give it support – blown by Agustus with this style that's very different from some of the more mainstream melodica modes – with a very improvisational approach, and a sound that expands and contracts in volume, depending on the lungpower used at each moment! Pablo's made plenty of great records in this mode, and this may well be one of the best – as you'll hear on cuts that include "Desire Dub", "Musical Pablo", "Barbwire Dub", "Maka", "Best Dub", "Foggy Pablo", "Rough Pablo", "A House Is Not A Dub", "Blind Dub", and "No Gesturing Pablo". LP also features two bonus tracks – "Ride Me Dub" and "Every Dub I Own". LP, Vinyl record album

Stu Phillips/Carrie Nations/Strawberry Alarm ClockBeyond The Valley Of The Dolls ... LP
20th Century, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
"It's not a sequel – there's never been anything like it." Finally, an awesome reissue of the classically groovy camp soundtrack to "king of the nudies" Russ Meyer's crazy non-sequel to Valley Of The Dolls – one of the greatest exploitation movies of all time! The music is almost unbelievably great for what was essentially supposed to be an X-rated cheapie (little did 20th Century Fox know) – with a wonderfully huge & string heavy score by composer Stu Phillips, insanely groovy, stomping mod rock from the Sandpipers, Strawberry Alarm Clock, and the film's busty real-life Playboy Bunny heroines the Carrie Nations/Kelly Affair! Z Man says it best – "This is MY happening, and IT FREAKS ME OUT!" Titles include the Carrie Nations tunes "Find It" and "Come With The Gentle People", the Strawberry Alarm Clock's "Girl From The City" and "I'm Coming Home", the Sandpipers groovy "Beyond The Valley Of The Dolls Theme", and more. Beautiful!!!! LP, Vinyl record album

Phairin PhonphibunLam Klom Thung – Essential Phairin Phonphibun ... LP
EM (Japan), Late 70s. New Copy ... $24.99
Other-worldly sounds from 70s Thailand – served up by the sublime vocals of Phairin Phonhibun – one of those singers who will grab you, even if you don't know what she's saying! Fortunately, this great package also features translations of the lyrics – which are helpful to turn to if you're as mesmerized by the vocals as we are – although honestly, the explanation of the tunes can hardly do justice to the way they come across at a mostly emotive level – as Phairin's got this way of bending her words and creating inflections that have more than enough meaning on their own! Instrumentation is a light blend of hypnotic organ and keyboard lines with earthier percussion, and some occasional stringed instrumentation – all in a mode that follows the sing-song passage of the lyrics in a beautiful way. Titles include "I Mae Oie", "Yan Hak Bo Ching", "Phak Ki Phu Chai", "Lam Phloen Chai Kon Ko", and "Ok Phansa". LP, Vinyl record album

Baden PowellImages on Guitar (180 gram pressing) ... LP
MPS (Germany), 1973. New Copy Gatefold ... $31.99 39.99
One of Baden Powell's grooviest albums ever – a brilliant blend of his bossa roots with the freer 70s grooves of MPS! The album follows the mode of some of his other European recordings, but is still a bit different – in that the overall sound is a bit freer than before, with tracks that really open up beautifully – including one or two that hit a nicely heavy groove! The lovely Janine De Walyene sings these wonderful wordless vocals on some of the album's best tracks – scatting heavily on the famous jazz dance number "Blues A Volante" – and drifting moodily behind the guitar on other numbers. Other instrumentation includes bass, drums, and a bit of Brazilian percussion – and titles include the classic "Blues A Volante", plus "Violao Vagabundo", "Canto", "Ate Eu", and "Conversacao Comigo Mesmo".

✨✧ Stanley TurrentineChip Off The Old Block (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Blue Note (Spain), 1963. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
A solidly soulful session from Stanley Turrentine – one of his few Blue Note dates in the company of organist Shirley Scott, and possibly the hardest-hitting of the bunch! The album's got a great added element in the front line – the trumpet of Blue Mitchell, which really rounds out the sound alongside Stan's tenor and Shirley's Hammond – making for a really full approach, even though the group's a quintet – almost in the mode of some of Turrentine's dates with his brother Tommy, but a bit more lown-down and dirty! There's a definite Basie influence going on but the sound is much leaner overall – and other players include Earl May on bass and Al Harewood on drums. Titles include "One O'Clock Jump", "Midnight Blue", "Blues In Hoss' Flat", and "Cherry Point". LP, Vinyl record album

Charles WilpFotografiert Bunny (with bonus 7 inch) ... LP
Wah Wah (Spain), 1965. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $29.99
A very strange record that's a wild weird blend of easy listening tunes and avant classical bits – all recorded by Marvin Martin, and put together in a lovingly sexy package by German art photographer Charles Wilp! Ostensibly, the music was originally compiled to go with a package that Wilp gave away free to corporate clients who hired him to do design work for them – and the package was never made commercially available – but easily lives up to the grooviest sounds of the late 60s from artists like Peter Thomas, Gert Wilden, or some of the other cool talents on the German scene! The music is as nutty as the titles might imply – with a sound that recalls some of the best collections of sound library music – and titles include "Powder Puff", "Beautiful Bald Woman", "Busy Bee", and "Nanci For Soft-Ice". Also includes two bonus tracks from a Afri-Cola advertising campaign – plus a 7" single with two tracks from the "I Type Supertype" 12" single! LP, Vinyl record album

Various100% Dynamite! – Ska, Soul, Rocksteady, & Funk In Jamaica (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $26.99
A legendary collection of rare Jamaican grooves – the first-ever reggae compilation from Soul Jazz Records – and a mighty dip into the huge catalog of Studio One! The collection's over a dozen years old, but it's still incredibly crucial – and this re-presentation gets new mastering, which ups the sound even more – and continues to focus on the kind of unusual tracks that went onto make the whole Dynamite series so great! The package gets way past the overdone roots reggae material that smoked up so many American dorm rooms in the 70s and 80s – and instead focuses on harder, more soulful tracks from the formative years of reggae – all the kind of brilliant productions handled by the legendary Clement Dodd. Great cuts include "Armageddon Time" by Willie Williams, "Stereo Freeze" by Jackie Mittoo, "Granny Scratch Scratch" by Sound Dimension, "Popcorn" by The Upsetters, "I Love The Way You Love" by Bunny Brown, "Give Rasta Glory" by Cedric Brooks, and lots more – and there's also some great Jamaican covers of American funky soul classics – like The Marvels' version of "Rock Steady", and Phyllis Dillon's great remake of Marlena Shaw's "Woman of the Ghetto". Lots more goodies, and the usual Soul Jazz high standard – which is 100% Dynamite! Features 5 more tracks than the original version, too. LP, Vinyl record album

VariousCoxone's Music 2 – The Sound Of Young Jamaica - More Early Cuts From The Vaults Of Studio One 1959 to 1963 (3LP set – with bonus download) ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 3LP Gatefold ... $24.99
A fantastic overview of sounds from the Jamaican scene in the years before rocksteady and ska really took off – most of them from the hands of groundbreaking producer Clement "Coxone" Dodd – later the driving force behind Studio One! In these early years, Dodd already had very close ties to the local scene – first as a DJ who was bringing in underground R&B sides from the US, to play on his 50s soundsystem – and also as a record store owner, with a very strong ear for new talent! Yet although Dodd's later sounds have been really well documented, these earliest recordings are perhaps even more amazing – as they showcase a really great range of styles, and present a Jamaican musical world in which the new ideas were just getting started, and taking on modes that sometimes feel very American, other times feel as if they're in a very individual space that doesn't even have any ska or blue beat touches. There's even a bit of jazz in the mix at times, which is great – and throughout the collection's 41 titles, there's an undeniable richness of Jamaican talent that would have already been huge, even if the scene didn't explode in later years. Titles include "More Proof" by Clancy Eccles, "Get Drunk" by Owen Gray, "Jerk Pork" by Roland Alphonso & His Alley Cats, "Cuban Blockade" by Don Drummond, "Little Lady" by Theophilus Beckford with Clue J & His City Slickers, "Exodus" by Jazz Jamaica, Don't Do It" by Bunny & Scully, "Six & Seven Books Of Moses" by The Maytals, "Peanut Vendor" by Tommy McCook, "Mighty Man" by Higgs & Wilson, "Creation" by Lascelles Perkins, "Mr Propman" by Jazz Jamaica From The Workshop, "Light Of My Life" by Mellow Larks, and "Grand National" by Down Beat All Stars.

Soul Jazz (UK), 1950s/1960s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $26.99 29.99
Way way more than just the usual roots reggae collection – a stunning set that documents the growth of Rastafari ideals in Jamaican music – with examples that range from years before the birth of reggae, through that style's bit growth in the 70s! The set includes this very large booklet of notes and images – giving plenty of historical context for the spiritual movement, and linking it's roots to Ethiopian political freedoms of the early 20th century, which then became a huge inspiration for oppressed Jamaicans. Styles of the music vary nicely – and include pre-reggae styles, mento, and other folkloric modes – which then give way to more familiar sounds, but always with an ear for the unique, and spiritually powerful. Titles include "Zion I" by Winston & Ansell, "Ethiopia" by Lord Lebby & The Jamaican Calypsonians, "Soul Drums" by Count Ossie & Leslie Butler, "His Imperial Majesty" by Rod Taylor, "Jah Will Cut You Down" by Earth & Stone, "Haile Selassie" by Laurel Aitken, "None Shall Escape The Judgement" by Johnny Clark, "African Drums" by Bongo Herman & Jah Lloyd, "Hail The Words Of Jah" by Ashanti Roy, "Salaam" by Bongo Herman, Les & Bunny, "Narration" by Count Ossie & The Mystic Revelation Of Rastafari, and "Rasta Dreadlocks" by The Heaven Singers.
