ClipseLord Willin' (7 x 7 inch white vinyl box set – with bonus track) ... 7-inch
Star Trak/Get On Down, 2002. New Copy 7 x 7-inch (reissue)... $44.99 49.98
The modern classic by Clipse – in a 7 X 7" box set! and a neo-electro/drug rap/crossover hip hop masterpiece produced by the Neptunes – the debut LP on their own Star Trak label. Malice and Pusha T arrive as smooth, confident rhymers with plenty of standout moments, while the Neptunes reach an early production peak. The Neptunes' fingerprints are evident on just about every second of every track, but it doesn't diminish the role of the rappers in the least. This is a true hip hop record from beginning to end, something the 'tunes had shied away from around the same time with the hard rockin' NERD and their more pop-oriented productions. We thought from the first needle drop that this was a record we'd be able to come back to for years and years and years, and that indeed holds true! Tracks include "Young Boy", "Ma, I Don't Love Her" featuring Faith Evans, "Ego", "Comedy Central" featuring Fabulous, "Gangsta Lean", "Let's Talk About It" featuring Jermaine Dupri, and more. Also includes the bonus Selector remix of "Grindin'" w/ Sean Paul, Bless, Kardinall Offishall, NORE, Baby & Lil' Wayne. 7-inch, Vinyl record
(White vinyl limited edition of 1000!)

Re-Up Gang/Star Trak, 2006. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Ever since this song leaked, the internet's been going nuts. The Clipse are back along with Pharrell over a white-hot Neptunes beat primarily consisting of synth blips and feedback. Chad and P really need to put out more beats like this on the regular. 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ ClipseHell Hath No Fury (white vinyl pressing) ... LP
Jive/Get On Down, 2006. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The long-gestated follow up to the breakout Lord Willin' record by Clipse – announced in fall 2003 – finally released in late 2006! Hell Hath No Fury may have been on ice for 3 years, but it appeared as an instant classic, WAY up at the top of the list of greatest hip hop LPs of the mid 00s. The Neptunes beats are very spare and chilly, despite the fiery title – while the Pusha T & Malice style of precise storytelling and detached deliveries probably make them one of the most natural duos in the game. A gritty rap masterpiece. Tracks include "We Got It For Cheap", "Momma I'm So Sorry", the masterful "Mr Me Too" feat Pharrell, "Wamp Wamp (What It Do)" feat Slim Thug, "Dirty Money", "Ride Around Shining" feat the Re-Up Gang, "Key's Open Doors", "Chinese New Year" feat Rosco P Coldchain, "Nightmares" feat Pharrell & Bilal and more.

Billy CobhamAtlantic Box Set 1973 to 1978 (Spectrum/Crosswinds/Total Eclipse/Shabazz/Funky Thide/Life & Times/Live On Tour/Inner Conflicts) (8CD set) ... CD
Atlantic/Rhino, Mid 70s. New Copy 8CD ... $44.99 59.98
A hell of a run of music from legendary drummer Billy Cobham – records so strong, they're maybe almost a genre unto themselves! Billy had already made something of a mark as a sideman before these albums, but right from the start, he brought something completely different to the table – a genre-stepping mix of jazz, funk, and soul influences that are as forward-moving for Cobham's instrument as Stanley Clarke's similar span of records in the 70s were for the bass – and, like Clarke's, these records have appeal that stretches way past conventional jazz, or even conventional funky jazz too. Yet there's also none of Cobham's more rockish-fusion on these records either – which makes for a wonderfully soulful span of records throughout – as Billy tries on so many different modes, and gets all of them pretty darn right! Some records have bonus tracks, too – and the set features the complete albums Spectrum, Crosswinds, Total Eclipse, Shabazz, Funky Thide Of Sings, Life & Times, Live On Tour In Europe, and Inner Conflicts – plus bonus tracks "Natural Essence", "Neu Rock & Roll (outtake)", "Stratus (single mix parts 1 & 2)", "All 4 One (outtake)", "Le Lis", "Crosswind (single mix)", "Moon Germs", "Hip Pockets (single mix)", and "Do What Cha Wanna (single mix)".

✨✧ John ColtraneKulu Se Mama ... LP
Impulse, 1966. Very Good- Gatefold ... $11.99
One of our favorite albums ever from John Coltrane – but a record that's sometimes eclipsed by the genius of A Love Supreme! The feel here is very similar to that one – long tracks that introduce a new mode of searching, spiritual jazz for the 60s – one that's performed by a core quintet with Coltrane, McCoy Tyner, Jimmy Garrison, and Elvin Jones – but which also features added players on the side-long title track! "Kulu Se Mama" is a tremendously bold statement in music – one that features a bit of spiritual vocals from Juno Lewis, plus added bass clarinet from Donald Garrett, tenor from Pharoah Sanders, and drums from Frank Butler. The two other tracks – "Vigil" and "Welcome" – are performed by a quartet, but are still equally great! LP, Vinyl record album

Freddie HubbardBlack Angel ... LP
Atlantic, 1969. Very Good ... $11.99
A totally fantastic set from the turn of the 70s, and one of Freddie Hubbard's most soulful, spiritual albums ever – a seminal chapter in the evolution of soul jazz – and a record that was a keen inspiration for changes to come on labels like Strata East and Black Jazz! The group here features Kenny Barron on both electric and acoustic piano – really stretching out with a hip, open sort of sound – possibly his first of this type on record – and other players include James Spaulding on alto and flute, Reggie Workman on bass, Louis Hayes on drums, and Patato Valdes on added percussion – giving a more complicated groove to the best numbers. Tunes are all long and well-penned – three by Freddie himself ("Eclipse", "Spacetrack", "Gittin' Down"), one by Kenny Barron ("Black Angel"), and one by Walter Bishop (the original recording of his classic "Coral Keys"!)

Bobby HutchersonTotal Eclipse (75th Anniversary Edition) ... LP
Blue Note, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.98
A brilliant collaboration between vibist Bobby Hutcherson and reedman Harold Land – the first Blue Note album to feature the talents of the pair together, and a stone classic from the very first note! Hutcherson had already been making big waves for the label with his earlier sides – some avant, some soulful, all great – but adding Land's magical tenor and flute to the mix really opens his sound up a lot, and unlocks a lyrical quality in Bobby's music that really points the way to his flourishing years in the 70s! Yet all is not totally sweet – as both Land and Hutcherson maintain an edginess on the record that makes it more of a progression from the "new thing" years than a break – and pianist Chick Corea is on hand, moving through a very similar path in his own music too. Other players include Reggie Johnson on bass and Joe Chambers on drums – and the tracks are nice and long, with that free-wheeling soulful sound that Land seemed to nicely bring to Hutcherson's playing. Titles include "Herzog", "Same Shame", "Maxtrix", "Total Eclipse", and "Pompeian". LP, Vinyl record album

Keith JarrettSomewhere Before – The Atlantic Years 1968 - 1975 ... CD
Vortex/WEA (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used 2 CDs ... $9.99
Wonderful work from pianist Keith Jarrett – pulled from a chapter of his career that's often eclipsed by his better-known sides on other labels! Jarrett's possibly best remembered for his albums on ECM, and a bit more for his early 70s sides on Impulse – but while working at Atlantic (mostly on the Vortex subsidiary), he cut some truly tremendous tracks – music that really stands out with a different feel than the rest of his career! Some of the music here has Keith working in a warmly chromatic mode – a trio style that's similar to the best 60s work by Steve Kuhn or Don Friedman, with a similar blend of sharp edges and warmer tones. Other tracks get a bit groovier, in ways that hint towards the spiritualism of the Impulse years, but which also have a bit more Atlantic elements in the mix – light electricity that makes for some very cool moments, especially on a few tracks recorded with Gary Burton. 2CD set features 22 tracks in all – titles that include "Life Between The Exit Signs", "Everything I Love", "Pout's Over", "New Rag", "Somewhere Before", "Trust", "Standing Outside", "All I Want", "The Mourning Of A Star", "Grow Your Own", "Como En Vietnam", "The Raven Speaks", "Birth", "Mortgage On My Soul", and "Toll Road".

KainBlue Guerrilla ... LP
Juggernaut, Early 70s. Sealed (reissue)... $9.99
One of the rawest, hardest-hitting albums of soul poetry of the 70s! Kain – aka Gylan Kain – was a member of the original Last Poets, a group who emerged in New York during the late 60s, but were eclipsed by the second (more famous) ensemble sharing the name who recorded for Douglas Records. Kain's anger and passion is incredible – far stronger than anything you'd hear on any of the better-known Last Poets records of the early 70s – and this solo record is completely over the top, both politically and performance-wise. The record has a hard hard hard sound – with over-the-top spoken bits that almost make the other Last Poets seem like they're kind of mellow. Cuts include "Silly Sh*t", "Harlem Preacher", "I Ain't Black", and "Constipated Monkey". Juggy Murray produced – and the album's a wild wild trip! LP, Vinyl record album

Kyoto Jazz Sextet (Kyoto Jazz Massive)Mission ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 2015. New Copy ... $28.99
Kyoto Jazz Massive is on a soulful mission this time around – stepping out on Blue Note with a wonderful tribute to the rich legacy of the label! The music is directed by Shuya Okino, and played by a super-sharp quintet who really recall the genius of Blue Note in the 60s – especially that time when the label was perfectly balanced between modern and hardbop modes, as evidenced by the selection of compositions here by Lee Morgan, Hank Mobley, Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, and Joe Henderson! None of the tracks are straight remakes, and there's definitely a fresh, acoustic spin on the rhythms – played by a lineup that includes trumpet, tenor, piano, bass, and drums – plus some guest instrumentation as well. Tracks include the group's own "Eclipse" – plus "Search For The New Land", "Succotash", "The Melting Pot", "Mr Jin", "Jinrikisha", "Up A Step", and "Speak No Evil". CD

Last PoetsRight On! ... LP
Juggernaut, 1968. Very Good- Gatefold ... $9.99
One of the wildest albums ever by the mighty Last Poets! Billed as "a woodstock in poetry", this is the soundtrack to the obscure film Right On (billed as "the hit film" on the cover), which was shot using the first version of the Last Poets that included Felipe Lucianao, David Nelson, and the wild card Gylan Kain – a group who originally had the name and style of protest poetry, but who had been eclipsed when the poet Abiodun left them and formed the group that first recorded for Douglas Records. The album, sort of a "we're back" effort, was produced by Juggy Murray, and apparently all recorded at the Cubiculo Theatre in New York – and it's one of two albums on the Juggernaut label, which also featured Kain's solo record. Most of the record is spare percussion, with the band shouting over the top – and the sound is even rawer than the group's first LP on Douglas. The titles should say it all – as the record features "My Pretty N*gger", "Tell Me Brother", "Die Nigga!", "James Brown", "Soul", "Poetry Is Black", "Into The Streets", and "Library", clearly a big influence on KRS-1.

Paul MauriatSeven Seas/Summer Has Flown ... CD
Vocalion (UK), 1983/1984. New Copy ... $16.99
80s work from Paul Mauriat – two records that show that the 60s easy listening star was still going strong! The Seven Seas has that strong Mauriat piano very firmly in the lead – recorded with a slightly different vibe than in the classic years, and with some elements that occasionally mark the decade – although overall, the sound is still pretty faithful to Paul's familiar orchestrations! Titles include a surprising version of "Thriller", plus "The Seven Seas", "So Bad/Pipes Of Peace", "Say say Say", "Total Eclipse Of The Heart", and "You Flew Into My Life". Summer Has Flown is a record with a title that definitely evokes the Paul Mauriat approach of earlier years – a blend of sentiment and slight sex, served up here with instrumentation that's often in a sweet, warm, electric 80s mode. Paul's sense of spacing and tone are still in place – and titles include "Sunset Opening", "I Guess That's Why They Call It The Blues", "Summer Has Flown", "The Woman In You", and "Never Gonna Let You Go".

Chris McGregor's Brotherhood Of BreathEclipse At Dawn ... CD
Cuneiform, 1971. Used ... $9.99
A previously unissued performance by the Brotherhood Of Breath – recorded at a time when the group was at the height of their early powers! Some of the styles here are in the straighter, South African-inspired jazz of pianist Chris McGregor's roots – but other tracks get far more experimental, and show the new ideas and levels of expression that some of the players were adopting at the time – a great criss-crossing of cultural modes as the London jazz scene absorbed ex-colonial artists from South Africa and the West Indies. The lineup here includes Dudu Puckwana and Mike Osborne on altos, Alan Skidmore and Gary Windo on tenor, Harry Beckett and Marc Charig on trumpet, Nick Evans and Malcolm Griffiths on trombone, Harry Miller on bass, and Louis Moholo on drums – all coming together with a sense of magical creativity that we'd reserve for a rare few groups – like the Sun Ra Arkestra! Titles include "Nick Tete", "Restless", "Do It", "Eclipse At Dawn", "The Bride", and "Funky Boots March". CD

Charles MingusPre Bird ... LP
Mercury, 1960. Near Mint- ... $19.99
An unusual chapter in the label-hopping career of Charles Mingus – a one-off date recorded for Mercury right after Mingus' legendary sessions for Columbia! The format here may well be Mingus' most ambitious to date – as the album features larger groups than before, exploring a range of musical ideas that run from Charles' own highly political expressions of the Civil Rights era to some of his landmark explorations of Duke Ellington! As always, the individual players in the group are given a strong voice in the proceedings – and the record bristles with energy from solos by Ted Curson, Eric Dolphy, Booker Ervin, Jimmy Knepper, Yusef Lateef, and a young Joe Farrell – as well as vocal performances by Lorraine Cousins, who sings on the classic "Weird Nightmare" and the haunting "Eclipse". A tremendous record throughout – filled with life, imagination, and boundless creativity – with titles that include "Mingus Fingus no. 2", "Weird Nightmare", "Eclipse", "Bemoanable Lady", "Half Mast Inhibition", and "Prayer for Passive Resistance".

Eric SidayUltra Sonic Perception (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Berry/Dual Planet (Australia), Early 60s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $23.99
Very early electronic sound library material from Eric Siday – so much so, that all these tracks were originally issued as 78rpm singles – at a time before the sound library scene moved into using full LPs! A number of cuts here were used as early passages on the first Doctor Who episodes – and others follow nicely in a similar vein – with very bold, powerful explorations of the earliest elements of analogue electronics – and an especially strong ear for the darker side of the spectrum! Most numbers here are never too noisy – not as much so as avant compositional work of the time – but they hang on the edge in a really great way, creating a lot of stark spacey elements with just a few deft touches. Titles include "Comet", "Ultimate", "Moonscape", "Galaxy", "Suspended Animation", "The Machines", "Pavane", "Pizzicato Piano", "Challenge Of Space", and "Eclipse". LP, Vinyl record album

Speedometer with James JuniorNo Turning Back ... CD
Freestyle (UK), 2015. New Copy ... $14.99
Speedometer unleash a great new talent for this excellent album – singer James Junior, who helps the group hit even greater funky heights than before! James isn't just one of those fake retro-styled vocalists who are thrown into the mix as an extra element – but a well-schooled, UK soul talent who's been working for years on a range of projects from session sides to gospel work – a legacy that's given him plenty of time to hone his craft, and emerge here as a singer who almost eclipses the rest of the group! The singer is just what Speedometer needed – a way to help them to really open up and find new territory with their sharp style of instrumentation – including a bit of jazz that we might never have heard from the group otherwise, which James takes to with a solid flair that reminds us a bit of Cleveland Watkins many years ago. This isn't another one of those deep funk albums trying to recreate the sound of soul music from the 60s and 70s – and instead really hits these fresh, strong styles that are completely great, and which make the whole album a delight – a great reminder that sometimes the UK scene can have a much more contemporary soul approach than the US. Titles include "Orisha's Party", "No Turning Back", "Just The Same", "I Showed Them", "Homebreaker", "Troubled Land", "Middle Of The Night", and "Mirage". CD

My god, what a record! This one's genius through and through – a set that sometimes gets eclipsed in the brilliance to come, but which is easily one of our favorites ever by Steely Dan! There's a beautifully focused feel here – thanks to Donald Fagan's incredible lead vocals, and a sense of songwriting that never takes any left turns – no odd forays into different styles or previous genres, just all steeped in Steely, as the group should be by this point! John Klemmer turns in some wonderful sax work that really helps shape the sound, and titles include the wonderful "Caves Of Altimira", "Kid Charlemagne", "Don't Take Me Alive", "Green Earrings", and "The Royal Scam".

✨✧ Total EclipseGreat Combination ... CD
BRC/Solid (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $22.99
A great combination of funk and soul – upbeat and mellow on the same album, served up by this rare indie combo from the 70s! The album's one of the few to appear on the elite BRC imprint of Brunswick Records – home to some incredible work over just a very short stretch, including this near-perfect set of sounds from Total Eclipse! The record begins with a few mellow numbers that would be right at home in the New Jersey soul scene of the early 70s – then rolls into some upbeat funk tracks that aren't disco at all, but show that quicker variant of funk that came to the forefront back when the clubs still had a nice sort of edge. Instrumentation includes lots of offbeat touches on the rhythms – and some cool moog on one track – and lead singer Bernard Fowler has this great quality that's heartbreaking when it wants to be, and positive at other moments. Titles include "St Albans Strut", "Midtown", "A Great Combination", "Loneliness", "Space Boogie", and "Plain Insane". CD

VariousBrunswick Bubblers – Presented By Gilles Peterson ... CD
Brunswick/Octave (Japan), New Copy ... $26.99
The legendary Gilles Peterson turns his magical ears to the catalog of Brunswick Records – and comes up with some of the label's hippest tunes of the 60s and 70s! Brunswick is best known for its famous soul hits of the late 60s and early 70s, but Peterson goes much deeper to come up with overlooked gems that are then laid out in a way that really makes them resonate strongly together – at a level that really illustrates the unified groove of the label! Brunswick often worked with a tight array of producers, arrangers, and session players – and Peterson finds key links between these tunes, often in surprising places – which makes the collection a real delight once you start stepping through it. Titles include "Keep On Dancing" by Bohannon, "Inner City Blues" by The Chi-Lites, "Harlem" by Willie Henderson, "This Is The Lost Generation" by The Lost Generation, "Ain't No Sunshine" by Gregory James Edition, "Light My Fire" by Jackie Wilson, "Disco Boogie" by Total Eclipse, "Will I Find Love" by Gene Chandler, "This Love Is Real" by Dana Valery, and "Go With Love" by Barbara Acklin.

VariousDave Hamilton's Detroit Dancers (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $16.99
Mighty sounds from a legendary Detroit soul producer – the great Dave Hamilton, a talent who issued a number of key singles back in the day, but who's left behind an even larger legacy of excellent unreleased work! This collection draws from both sides of that spectrum – and features upbeat Northern Soul gems that were issued on small labels like Topper and Demo-Ristic – mixed with other tracks that lay in Dave's vaults until their discovery at some point in the 90s! Together, the tracks are a wonderful illustration of the deep deep trove of material that lurked in the Detroit scene far in the shadows of Motown – artists who were eclipsed by the big names at the time, but who sound mighty darn fresh all these many years later. Titles include "What Should I Do", and "Who Are You Trying To Fool" by Little Ann, "Sweep It Out The Shed" and "Challenge My Love" by Tobi Lark, "Love Friends & Money" by James Lately, "You Won't Miss The Water" by Chico & Buddy, "Talkin About My Baby" by Dottie & Millie, "You Got Me Turned Around" by OC Tolbert, "Shoop Doop" by Dave Hamilton, and "You Did" by Priscilla Page & Rony Darrell.
