Kip HanrahanCoup De Tete ... LP
American Clave, 1980. Near Mint- ... $24.99
One of Kip Hanrahan's incredible albums for American Clave – sides that are beyond description, and which seemed to emerge out of nowhere, offering some of the few true cross-cultural experiments in jazz in the 80s that didn't sound like they were forced or prepackaged! Kip's got a strong Latin influence here – working with players that include Jerry Gonzalez, Daniel Ponce, and Nicky Marrero, as well as New York downtown luminaries like Anton Fier, Arto Lindsay, and Carla Bley. Add in some strong soulful jazz players like Carlos Ward and Chico Freeman, and the album's got a depth that's surprising – and which makes Hanrahan's experiments in style work perfectly! Titles include "Sketch From Two Cubas", "No One Gets To Transcend Anything", "A Lover Divides Time", "This Night Comes Out Of Both Of Us", "At The Moment Of The Serve", and "India Song". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original American Clave pressing, including the printed inner sleeve.)

Medallions Featuring Vernon GreenSpeedin' ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s. New Copy ... $8.99 18.99
Wonderful west coast vocal group work from Vernon Green & The Medallions – a group who were rooted in doo wop, but who also step out here with a sound that paves the way for plenty of soul as well! There was something different about some of these great LA groups from the 50s – a quality that was often tighter than some of the more street corner work of the east coast – a sensibility that really comes through in vocals like this, which seem to be striving even further for a powerful punch in the overall package! Green's lead really gives the harmonies something to focus around – and the tracks are a great mix of playful numbers and more heartbreaking tunes – with titles that include "Shedding Tears For You", "Unseen", "Give Me The Right", "Dear Darling", "59 Volvo", "Buick 59", "Coup De Ville Baby", "Push Button Automobile", "Rocket Ship", "The Telegram", and "I Wonder Wonder Wonder".

Pat ThomasComing Home – Original Ghanaian Highlife & Afrobeat Classics 1967 to 1981 ... CD
Strut (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99
A double-length look at the music of Pat Thomas – a key figure on the scene in Ghana during the 70s, heard here in a variety of settings and styles! The range of sounds promised in the title definitely rings true – as the music starts with early jazzy highlife, then moves through 70s Afro Funk – but Thomas was also always a forward-thinking artist, and some of the final sounds here almost preface changes to come for African artists on the global scene – modes that showcase Pat's work on the European scene after the late 70s coup in Ghana. The vocals are great – as deeply expressive as the rhythms are powerful – and the package features collaborations with Ebo Taylor, work with the famous group Maritata, solo projects, and tracks by the Sweet Beans, Broadway Dance Band, and Ogyatanaa Show Band. Titles include "Super Yaa Amponsah", "Merebre", "Eye Colo", "Yamona", "I Need More", "Who's Free", "Mpaebo", "Revolution", "We Are Coming Home", "Set Me Free", "No Money No Love", "Sack The Devils", "Ma Huno", and "Gyae Su".

VariousIn The Beginning There Was Rhythm – The Rise Of Dance Music After Punk ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Early 80s. Used ... $8.99
The resurgence of one of the most groundbreaking periods in recent groove history – the almost-forgotten post-punk years in England, a time of incredible musical convergence! In the heady days of the early 80s – a time when much music was being lost under a gloss of big hair, tinny keyboards, and wispy vocals – a small underground of British musicians were bringing together bits of funk, punk, disco, reggae, and 70s electronica – crafting dark and funky little tunes the likes of which we've barely heard since! A number of these groups went onto do much larger (and weaker) recordings – but this package brilliantly documents the edgy brilliance at the beginning of the post punk years: a nihilistic horizon on the other end of punk – no longer angry, caustic, and shouting, on one hand with the wind knocked out of its apparent sails, on the other, slowly fomenting in secret places, coming up with music far more powerful than punk ever was. And for some strange reason, much of it was pretty darn funky – thanks to a heavy use of simple electric bass, scattershot (sometimes primitive) drum parts, and nice electronic touches, almost in an inverse to American electro. The music more than speaks for itself – and the set's as classic a batch of tunes from the time as we'd ever heard. Titles include "Shack Up" and "Knife Slits Water" by A Certain Ratio, "In The Beginning There Was Rhythm" by The Slits, "20 Jazz Funk Greats" by Throbbing Gristle, "Vegas El Bandito" and "Coup" by 23 Skidoo, "She Is Beyond Good & Evil" by The Pop Group, "Being Boiled" by The Human League, "To Hell With Poverty" by Gang Of Four, and "24 Track Loop" by This Heat.

✨✧ VariousCosmic Machine The Sequel – A Voyage Across French Cosmic & Electronic Avantgarde ... CD
Because (France), 1970s. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Sweet electronic sounds from 70s France – pulled from a range of sources that include disco records, prog rock sets, sound library sessions, and even film soundtracks – all served up with a very cool, very cosmic sort of vibe! The French scene took its electronics differently than some of the other European scenes of the period – and often mixed in bits of keyboards or moog with more conventional instrumentation – or sometimes worked in an all-electronic mode, but with a warmth that was different than the colder sounds to come in the post-punk years! As a result, the music here is surprisingly soulful at times, and often nice and funky – while still having some of the edgier modes you might expect from soundtracks or spacier records of the period. The range of talents here is wonderful – and this second volume in the series might be even more revelatory than the first – with tracks that include "Young Freedom" by Francis Lai, "Mouvement Decompose D'Un Coup De Marteau" by Pascal Comelade, "Moonshine" by Stereo, "Cristal No 3" by Moon Birds, "Indian Love Melody" by Georges Rodi, "Grand Prix" by Grand Prix, "Vadrouillard 3" by Roger Roger, "Main Theme From More" by Rosebud, "Signaux Codes Non Identifes" by Michel Magne, "Love Is All" by Pierre Porte, "Pepper Box" by The Peppers, "Ruitor" by Richard Pinhas, "Monkey Star" by Arpady's, "Les Soucoupes Volantes Vertes" by Heldon, and "Take A Chance (rmx inst)" by Queen Samantha.

You guessed it. Danger Mouse and MF Doom together – and also a collaboration with the writers and voice talent of Cartoon Network's Adult Swim block of programming circa the mid 00s, so the You guessed it. Danger Mouse and MF Doom together – and also a collaboration with the writers and voice talent of Cartoon Network's Adult Swim block of programming circa the mid 00s! The dangerous duo make room for appearances by Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Space Ghost, Brak, Zorak, Harvey Birdman, the Sealab 2021 team and the Mooninites – plus live action characters Ghostface, Talib Kweli and Cee-Lo. Basically, you can look at the project as a crass, college age market research driven coup and an affront to classic hip hop – or you can look at it as sort of a less pretentious Gorillaz. We're rollin with the latter, and it's a helluva lot more fun, too!! DM's and Doom's styles compliment each other as well as Doom's and Madlib's – and the participation of Adult Swim makes this one of the few hip hop albums in which you actually look forward to the skits! One question, though. Where is Schoolly D? Tracks include "Sofa King", "ATHF", Mince Meat", "Old School" feat Talib Kweli, "Bizzy Box" feat Cee-Lo, "Space Hos" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Gnarls BarkleyOdd Couple ... CD
Atlantic/Downtown, 2008. Used ... Out Of Stock
A round two knockout for Gnarls Barkley – an album we think is better than the landmark St Elsewhere LP – boisterous pop art & soul from Danger Mouse and Cee-Lo! We were slightly trepid when the Odd Couple was announced, fearing a hasty attempt to rekindle the magic that clearly caught everyone by surprise a couple years ago, but that worry is squashed. This is a near masterpiece, kids! Incredibly deep and impressively spun from obscure sound library records, Italian soundtracks, and all kinds of moddish samples by Danger Mouse – with warmly scratchy vocals by Cee-Lo that are as fresh as anything he's ever done. Again, he's laughing in the face of darkness and depression, and somehow making a party out of it! You won't find another mainstream success story this year that's so fun and charming on a superficial level – while truthfully dark and troubled if you focus some on the lyrics. Hype be damned, this one's amazing! Tracks include "Charity Case", "Who's Gonna Save My Soul", "Going On", "Run (I'm A Natural Disaster)", "Would Be Killer", "Open Book", "Whatever", "Surprise", "No Time Soon", "She Knows", "Blind Mary", "Neighbors", "A Little Better".

PTG (Netherlands), Early 80s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A sweet set of dancefloor soul from the first half of the 80s – and it goes way past the hits! Volume 19 features cuts by Donna McGhee, Chocolate Milk, Con Funk Shun and a couple other names on the more recognizable tip, but it's also got great stuff by groups and solo stars that aren't often anthologized, but just as worthy. Crisp 80s funky production and breezy soul harmonies are the order the day here, and there's not an overplayed jam to be found, so it's got a fresh feel! Includes "Lovin' Fever" by Con Funk Shun, "Bye Gones" by Tom Browne, "Peace Of Mind" by Genobia Jeter, "Sweet Heat" by Chocolate Milk, "Way Out" by Dynasty, "Better Day" by Gift Of Dreams, "Danger Zone" by Midnight Express, "The Champ" by American Gypsy, "Love Me Tonight" by Attitude, "You Should Have Told Me" by Donna McGhee and more. 13 in all.

Doris AllenShell Of A Woman – The Legendary Playground Sessions ... CD
Soulscape (UK), Late 60s/Mid 80s. New Copy ... $9.99 19.99
Powerhouse soul from singer Doris Allen – who made a bit of a splash in the late 60s southern soul scene with duet partner Big John Hamilton – but who's own work from that time and a couple decades later have been under acknowledged in the digital era until now! The first half of the CD features the late 60s work, and it's wonderful – produced by Finley Duncan at Duncan's Playground Studios – featuring a couple of the Hamilton duets, but it's Doris's show. She can both shout out soulfully to the heavens and reign it in for more delicate numbers, and the often gritty soul backing of drums, organ and horns are of the finest caliber. The second half of the set jumps to the mid 80s, and the cleaner, smoother sounds of that era – still produced by Duncan – and Allen's voice as impeccable as earlier. Titles include "A Shell Of A Woman", "Kiss Yourself For Me", "Let A Little Love In", "A Place In My Heart", "Them Changes", "Bright Star", "Candy From A Baby", "Treat Me Like A Woman", "Full Time Fool", "Night Time Is The Right Time" and more, plus 9 previously unreleased tracks, including "Clean Up Woman", "Birmingham Jail", "Ashes Won't Burn" and more. 23 tracks in all!

Prestige, 1957. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $6.99
Two early, rootsy Mose Allison sides, brought together by Milestone/Prestige in the 70s for this repackage. Most of this set is instrumental bluesy piano trio numbers, but Mose busts out with some vocals and even a spot of trumpet on a couple numbers, including an early version of his signature tune "Parchman Farm", plus "Lost Mind", "Blues", "Trouble In Mind" and "One Room Country Shack". He's joined by Addison Farmer or Taylor LaFargue on bass, and either Frank Isola or Nick Stabulas on drums, and the instrumental sides include "Blueberry Hill", the side long "Black Country Suite", "In Shalah", "I'll Never Be Free" and "Ain't You A Mess".

Kingsley AmisOld Devils ... Book
New York Review Of Books, 1986. New Copy ... $4.99 14.95
One of the last great achievements of writer Kingsley Amis – a book in which all his wit and social focus comes to bear with an incredibly strong bite! The book focuses on an aging set of Welsh couples who spend their golden years drinking and arguing – content enough in their own tension, but really set on edge when another couple returns to their midst from time in London – opening old wounds and leaving new ones. Amis had one of the keenest eyes for British society in the postwar years – and his story here is told with a focus on a different character from chapter to chapter – shifting the focus wonderfully, and providing even more insight than some of his novels with a single protagonist. 294 pages, softcover.

BanglesLadies & Gentleman – The Bangles! ... CD
Omnivore, Early 80s. New Copy ... $9.99 16.98
First-ever compilation of some of the earliest recordings by The Bangles – Mersey Beat, punk and Paisley Underground-inspired tunes that are a world away from their glossy pop to come! In the first couple years of the 80s, before moving to the majors, The Bangles already had the killer voices, hooks and melodies, but played and recorded with a rawer, punkish immediacy, more akin to the LA underground than to nascent Mtv pop. They're much loved to this day for their pop heyday, and deservedly so, but Omnivore has done the deeper diggers a real solid with this collection of the underappreciated early stuff! Includes "Bitchin Summer/Speedway", "Getting Out Of Hand" and "Call On Me" recorded while they were still The Bangs, plus "The Real World", "I'm In Line", "Want You" and "Mary Street", "No Mag Commercial", "Call On Me", "Tell Me", "7 & 7 Is" and more.

Rare early single from Italian singer-songwriter Franco Battiato – and in a melodic, sprawling psych pop style – with is something of a surprise given his more out there experimentation on later recordings!

To Beck's credit, Guero doesn't sound so much like a throwback to "classic Beck" as much the next step forward, and it's a solid one full of memorable songs, oddball rap-inspired vocals, catchy choruses and freewheeling production.

Listening to this a couple years on without the expectations, though we hear a strong & soulful record indeed, particularly the deep soul sheen that glosses most of the sides. Tracks include the Premier-produced "Bep Empire" (is it just us, or are most of the NuHoppers nearly always at their best when they rely on tried and true hip hop production?), "Weekends", "Get Original", "Cali To New York" featuring De La Soul, "On My Own" featuring Les Nubian & Mos Def, "Release", "Bridging The Gaps", "Go Go", "Rap Song" featuring Wyclef, "Bringing It Back", "Tell Your Mama Come", the great single "Request Line" featuring Macy Gray, and more.

BlondieHunter ... LP
Chrysalis, 1982. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
A weird one from Blondie – and with lot more going for it than the reception at the time would suggest! Following up the diverse pop leanings of Autoamerican, in some ways this is the logical next step from there – Debra's voice way out front in the mix, layers of additional preclusion, horns, global pop accents (post "The Tide Is High", that's a given), oddball covers – The last Blondie album of the 80s, even though it was only 1982, and their last as a band until a late 90s reunion – and as such, ignored by some and maligned by others at the time. It's fair enough for serious fans of the first couple LPs to dismiss the pop pastiche of the last couple, but there's some really interesting stuff here – including a title them written for (and rejected by) the Bond film "For Your Eyes Only" that's radically different than the Bill Conti/Sheena Easton song, a cover the Smokey Robinson-penned "The Hunter Gets Captured By The Game", "Danceway", "Orchid Club", "Island Of Lost Souls", "English Boys" and more.

Willie BoboHell Of An Act To Follow/Bobo ... CD
Columbia/Soul Brother (UK), 1978/1979. New Copy ... $14.99
2 late 70s gems from Willie Bobo – 1978's Hell Of An Act To Follow and 1979's Bobo – on a single CD! Hell Of An Act To Follow is really nice stuff from Willie – maybe not as hard and funky as his early 70s work, but very nice in kind of a Latin Club mode, thanks to some great production by Wayne Henderson! The album's a killer blend of funky fusion and Latin rhythms, very much in the NuYorica mode, especially at that mid 70s point when New York groups were getting a taste of a bit more production. Includes Willie's classic take on "Always There" – which is a great dancefloor jazz jammer – plus Henderson's groovy stepper "Keep that Same Old Feeling", and the tracks "Together", "Dindi", and "Pisces". Bobo is kind of a rare Columbia set from 1979 – with a mix dancefloor ready Latin, bits of fusiony funk & soul, and overall much more of vocals record than was typical for Willie – featuring Errol Knowles' doing the honors, plus a Bobo father & son duet. Really kind of an uptempo dancefloor groover from Willie overall, with a couple more laidback numbers! Includes the opener "Palos", "Comin Over To Me", "Latin Lady (Celia's Song)", "It's Over", "Set You Free", "Father And Son" and more. The Soul Brother Records CD version includes a bonus track remix of "Always There". CD

Great work from the Bowman Trio – a group named not for any of the musicians who perform , but for the writer J Bowman – whose words inspired each of the songs on the set! The trio features Tomi Nikku on trumpet, Joonas Tuuri on bass, and Sami Nummela on drums – all Finnish players who are relatively new to our ears, but who come on here with a dynamic energy that really blows us away – an approach that's maybe somewhere in the territory of free jazz, but a lot more focused – yet still a lot farther-out than some of the work from other corners of the Scandinavian scene! The drums and bass really push most tracks with a soaring sort of power – and Nikku has this way of running high and low on his horn, in one of the most searching, searing takes on trumpet we've heard in a long time – and one of the freshest, too. Titles include "How To Win A Gun Fight", "Bowman Cigarettes", "Hard Work", "Khumbu Icefall", "Am Prayer", and "Summer In Visby". LP, Vinyl record album
