CoupSteal This Album ... CD
Dogday, 1998. Used ... $3.99
The Coup's third and arguably their best album – the late 90s classic Steal This Album! STA is much funkier than some of the later work from Boots and the Funkstress, but with just as sharp of a political vision. Now paired down to a duo, it's a tighter vision, and Boots vivid storytelling and barbed social commentary & satire lead the way over DJ Pam's beats. Includes "The Shipment", "Me And Jesus The Pimp In A 79 Granada Last Night", "20,000 Gun Salute", "Busterismology", "Breathing Apparatus", "The Repo Man Sings For You" featuring a great cameo by Del Tha Funkee Homosapien, and "Underdogs".

Serge FranklinLe Grande Carnaval/Le Coupe De Sirocco ... CD
Music Box (France), 1979/1983. Used ... $4.99
A warm European soundtrack from Serge Franklin – but one that's also served up with plenty of twists and turns to keep things exciting! The film's got a WWII setting – and Franklin mixes occasional bits of swing and jazz with the fuller orchestrations – which themselves have the evocative quality of a Morricone historical epic – never overdone, but shifting colors and tones in a really beautiful way. A few passages underscore military themes, but with a bit of humor – and titles include "Carnaval Circus", "Le Grand Carnaval", "Leon Et Walter", "Le Testament", "Sweetheart", and "Bolero Du Grand-Pere". The CD also features a handful of tracks from Le Coup De Sirocco – material that's got a similar warm feel as the larger orchestrations on the first soundtrack, but with a few playful moments too – on tracks that include "Sexy Sax Blues", "Narboni & Fils", "Ville D'Alger", and "Hey Baby Foot".

Philippe SardeLe Cinema De Bertrand Tavernier ... CD
Universal (France), 1970s/1980s/Early 90s. New Copy ... $3.99 14.98
A selection of work from soundtracks that Philippe Sarde wrote for 7 different films directed by Bernard Tavernier – L'Horloger De Saint-Paul, Le Juge Et L'Assassin, Des Enfants Gates, Coup De Torchon, Un Dimanche A La Campagne, L 627, and La File De D'Artagnan. The material was recorded over a period of 20 years, but is linked together well through the sentimentality of Sarde's writing and Tavernier's stories. 20 tracks in all – including "Ce Soir On Fete Munich", "Bal De Nuit", "Paris Jardis Par Jean Rochefort et Jean Pierre Marielle", "La Visite", "Les Oubilettes", and "Je Suis Mort Il Y A Si Longtemps".

VariousGlory, Dominion, Power, Majesty: Half Moon Productions ... LP
PK/Half Moon (UK), 1970s/1980s. New Copy 2 LPs ... Just Sold Out!
The folks at Honest Jon's and PK have done it again! Scoring another reggae reissue coup by digging a little deeper and coming up with the goods: a batch of nice tracks from the 70s and early 80s heyday of the Toronto-based reggae label Half Moon Productions, when it played host to stars like Augustus Pablo, Stranger Cole, Johnny Osbourne and Leroy Sibbles, as well as a handful of lesser known local ringers, too. Producer Oswald Creary and the Super 8 Corporation house band may not exactly be household names to even the most die-hard fan, but then we never really were about household names here at Dusty, and neither are the selectors over at Honest Jon's. Like his contemporary Lloyd Bullwackie Barnes, Creary and crew crafted a batch of heavy, deep modern roots, with the cream collected here, 17 tracks in all: Joe Higgs "Creation", Stranger Cole "Freedom, Justice & Equality", Super 8 Corporation "Freedom Version" and "Free Version", Louis O'Connor "Lonely & Black", Pluggy Satchmo "What Rasta Say" and "23rd Psalm", Rothadam "Sampson", OJ "Things Felt Right", The Blenders "Why Did You Run Away?", Dill Smith "Set Me Free", Stranger Cole & Jah Levi "I'm Living", Bongo Ossie & The Moonlights "Black Society", Johnny Osbourne "Danger In Your Eyes", Bingi Kicks & G.Campbell "Sky Jack", Leroy Sibbles & The Otravis Band "Skyjacking Version" and Carl Dawkins "Luv Is Needed".

✨✧ Brian ColemanCheck The Technique Vol 2 – More Liner Notes For Hip Hop Junkies (paperback) ... Book
Wax Facts Press, 2014. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Golden age of hip hop historian Brian Coleman's second Check The Technique tome – the in-depth stories behind some of the greatest records of the 80s and early 90s – an even greater collection than the first volume! Coleman's approach is straight-forward and direct – chronicling a choice selection of 25 bonafide classic albums, breaking them down track-by-track, peppered by interviews with the artists, producers and other principle personalities behind the work, for the most honest histories that Coleman can get. Volume 2 uses a broader time frame than the previous collection, going as far back as 1981's Wild Style Breakbeats, and as recent as the late 90s for Mos Def & Talib Kweli's Black Star and The Coup's Steal This Album. Other records discussioned include The Cactus Album by 3rd Bass, A Wolf In Sheep's Clothing by Black Sheep, The Sun Rises In The East by Jeru The Damaja, Mantronix The Album, Raekwon's Only Built 4 Cuban Links, Stetsasonic In Full Gear, Stunts, Blunts & Hip Hop by Diamond & The Psychotic Neurotics and more. Like the author's Check The Technique Vol 1 and Rakim Told Me, it's vital hip hop history, breezily readable and engrossing as can be. 525 paperback pages, and each chapter includes photos of the artists, the records and associated singles, and other choice historical tidbits. Essential! Book

The set's got a couple of originals – "Sister Caroline" and "Branching Out" – plus versions of "Well You Needn't" and "I've Got Plenty Of Nothin". Gene Harris & The Three Sounds make for a nice backing, and Johnny Griffin's solos are as sharp as they ever were at this point. CD

Cat AndersonCat On A Hot Tin Horn ... LP
Mercury, 1958. Very Good ... $19.99
Sweet trumpet work from one of Duke Ellington's best sidemen – done for Mercury in 1958 with some very tight arrangements by Anderson and Ernie Wilkins – all in a mode that show's a bit of Cat's Ellington association, but which also opens up in some other swinging modes – including a bit of Basie, and even some wider ranging styles. Cat's in the lead on trumpet, getting support from other players on the instrument – including Clark Terry, Ernie Royal, and Ray Copeland – plus Jimmy Cleveland and Frank Rehack on trombone, Earl Warren on alto sax, Jimmy Forrest and Ernie Wilkins on tenor, and Sahib Shihab on baritone. Titles include "Little Man", "Cat's In The Alley", "June Bug", "Adorable D", "Nina", "Birth Of The Blues", and "Blue Jean Beguine". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ashford & SimpsonCome As You Are ... LP
Warner, 1976. Very Good- ... $0.49
A mid 70s winner from Ashford & Simpson – one of their earlier efforts, and a record that finds them fleshed out as a top notch act of their end – even if it'd be yeas before they'd net the kind of huge chart success that they deserved! Come As You Are is filled with solid soul with a sophisticated, expertly spun approach to production and arranging around the duo vocals – and the first rate songwriting that they'd provided for huge Motown stars like Diana Ross and Marvin Gaye. A couple tracks move more towards a dancefloor soul vibe that's pretty wonderful, and doesn't compromise the intimate soul vocals at the center. Titles include "It'll Come, It'll Come, It'll Come", "One More Try", "Believe In Me", "Caretaker", "Somebody Told A Lie", "Tell It All", "Sell The House" and "It Came To Me". This CD edition includes a couple remixes of the most club soul styled tune "One More Try" – the 12" disco mix plus a longer Dimitri re-edit! LP, Vinyl record album

Bama LamasGoing Up? (with download) ... LP
Bama Lamas, 2014. New Copy ... $7.99
Rowdy, vintage R&B-fueled rockers from The Bama Lamas – a contemporary Chicago band with a retro sound, akin to late 50s though mid 60s ragers from The Burnette Brothers to Screamin' Jay Hawkins and lots in between – and they make it sound fresh and vital! A couple of the Bama Lamas also serve as band members for the legendary Andre Williams, if you need any more evidence to their authenticity – and the tracks include "Tell Ya Once", "(Do) The Hurt", "Sugar Snap", "Sambuca", "(Do) The Crab", "Hunger", "Goin' Out", "Hungry Teenage Wolfman", "Monkey Bump", "Ghost Of The Voodoo King", "No More" and more. Recorded in mono – glorious mono! LP, Vinyl record album

Beach BoysFriends ... LP
Capitol, 1968. Very Good- ... $11.99
An under-discovered album from The Beach Boys – and one of our favorite records by the group! The set's kind of a slinking back to the personal, quirky territory of Smile, but with a somewhat more intimate, less-ambitious feel – one that comes off like a tapestry of simple expressions from the group – surprisingly heartfelt at times, fragile at others, and always with a soul-bearing quality that's really wonderful. This one's light years from their surfer pop of a few years before – even a strong maturation from the Pet Sounds set of just two years back – and the harmonies really have the group hitting new strides – hardly a copycat of earlier male group modes, pure harmony heaven for the late 60s! The whole thing's wonderful – and titles include "Friends", "Transcendental Meditation", "Anna Lee The Healer", "Wake The World", "Meant For You", "Busy Doing Nothin", "Little Bird", "Be Here in the Mornin'", and "Diamond Head". LP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label stereo pressing. Cover has some wear, a split spine, splitting and flaking on the bottom seam, and a couple of small stains.)

BedheadWhatFunLifeWas (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Numero, 1994. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99
The first album from Bedhead – a 1994 record that helped usher in something of a quiet revolution in 90s indie rock – paving the way for lusher, moodier and slower soundscapes, soon be dubbed slowcore! Bedhead is as much a breath of fresh air a couple decades later, delivering a timeless, moody sound that takes some cues from the vibe of the Velvet Underground at their mellowest, and more recent trailblazers like Spaceman 3 – but ultimately deliver their own distinctive, and now oft-imitated sound. Includes "Liferaft", "Haywire", "Bedside Table", "The Unpredictable", "Landlord", "Crushing", "Unfinished", "Powder", "Foaming Love", "To The Ground", "Living Well" and "Wind Down".

Jeb Bishop/Jason Roebke/Frank Rosaly2009 ... CD
Better Animal Recordings, 2009. Used ... $8.99
A remarkably strong trio set from Chicago heavy hitters Jeb Bishop, Jason Roebke and Frank Rosaly – Bishop compositions, some that have been in his arsenal for quite a while, so good for us that they've finally been recorded and with such an excellent couple of players! It must be said that it feels sharp and fresh and not like the fruition of a long brewing process, with ample space for improvisation along with the trio's impeccable sense of melody. Bishop plays trombone, Roebke is on bass and Rosaly is the drummer – each have played on many a top shelf jazz set the over the past decade or more and work together excellently here. Titles include "900", "Dusk", "Jacket Weather", "11 AM Verti Marte", "Full English", "Before And After", "Round Two", "The Lateness Of The Hour" and more. CD

Teresa Brewer with Count Basie & Duke EllingtonSongs Of Bessie Smith/It Don't Mean A Thing If It Ain't Got That Swing ... CD
Flying Dutchman/Boplicity (UK), 1973. New Copy ... $14.99
A pair of later jazzy vocal LP gems by Teresa Brewer, both backed by jazz greats – Songs Of Bessie Smith with Count Basie and Thad Jones, and It Don't Mean A Thing If It Ain't Got That Swing with Duke Ellington – both released by Flying Dutchman in 1973! Teresa's popularity peaked a couple decades earlier as a girlish pop singer, and she succeeds strongly on both records – not just because of the jazz heavies in the band, but because she has the pipes and genuine affection for the material to pull it off. It's lovely stuff! Songs Of Bessie Smith have the bluesy overtones necessary to make it work, without trying the hide Teresa's naturally softer approach. Basie on piano throughout, with arrangements by Jones, and a great big band on half and more intimate arrangements on the other half. It Don't Mean A Thing. . .works just as wel, with Duke Ellington and Ernie Wilkins arrangements, and great Flying Dutchman players that include Bernard Purdie, Joe Beck and Mtume. 20 tracks in all, including "Trombone Cholly", "Gmme A Pigfoot", "I Ain't Got Nobody", "St Louis Blues", "I Ain't Got Nothing But The Blues", "Mood Indigo", "I'm Beginning To See The Light", "I've Got To Be A Rug Cutter", "Tulip Or Turnip", "I'ts Kinda Lonesome Out Tonight" and more.

Hugh Brodie & The Real ThingHugh Brodie & The Real Thing ... LP
Kheba, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $7.99
A little funky, a little jazzy, and a great little record from saxophonist Hugh Brodie – playing here with his excellent Real Thing combo! The record's got a looser feel than other soul jazz sessions of the time – and a style that's straighter jazz one minute, and a bit more soul the next – especially on the tunes that feature vocals from Donna Brodie and other members of the group. Hugh himself plays tenor and soprano sax on the record, and there's almost a vibe here borrowed from Eddie Harris' great early 70s albums on Atlantic – with the same sort of freewheeling approach, coupled with some trippy touches on guitars – which are occasionally processed in weird ways! Titles include "Utopian Chant", "Truthful One", "The Get Down Song", "Cornbread & Beans", "The Real Thing", and "Tippin". LP, Vinyl record album

Bubble PuppyGathering Of Promises ... LP
International Artists, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
The lone album from the Bubble Puppy – a monumental effort of late 60s hard grooving psychedelia – and one of very best albums to come out of the original Texas psych scene! A couple of the Pup's labelmates at United Artists get a lot of revelry all these years later, and rightfully so – who would argue the importance of The Red Krayola and 13th Floor Elevators – but Bubbly Puppy deserve to be on that top shelf, too. The sound is tight and hard hitting, with trippy lyricism and groovy group harmonies, while the guitars range from cathartic fuzz to some surprisingly pretty melodicism. Not as far out as some of their peers, but the groove is absolutely killer. Titles include the benchmark single "Hot Smoke And Sasafrass", plus "Todd's Tune", "I've Got To Reach You", "Lonely", "Hurry Sundown", "Elizabeth", "It's Safe To Say", "Beginning" and much more.

Sandy BullE Pluribus Unum ... CD
Vanguard, 1968. New Copy ... $11.99 17.98
Sandy Bull's third album – a pair of long pieces that combine the multicultural folk instrumental experimentation – with Bull playing guitar, bass, bass drum, oud and hand percussion – rolling in a bit more electric blues on one, and meandering psychedelic impulses on the other! The album features 2 sidelong pieces, "No Deposit, No Return Blues" and "Electric Blend" – the both recognizable as Bull's work if you've heard is previous couple of excellent LPs for Vanguard, but actually manage to work in more conventional grooves and more far out experimentation – splitting the difference in that regard. "No Deposit, No Return Blues" does work in some laidback electric blues guitar and spare percussion backing, but tinged with Sandy's Middle Eastern touches, too. "Electric Blend" works in the evolving sprit of his earlier "Blends", with with inspiration from the later 60s psych sounds. CD

Garry Bushell's cool look back at the mod revival scene of the late 70s and first year or 2 of the 80s – a fairly short-lived, but still invigorating couple years of raw, R&B fueled post-punk that's famous for spawning The Jam and many lesser-remembered, but hardly less invigorating bands, fashion and lifestyle that's still influential to younger discoverers. Bushell was one of the more active rock writers covering the scene at the time, and this great little book is filled with his reverent, but barbed prose, and some very cool photos of the action.

Monster Movie indeed roars – but does so with an unselfconscious feel that are the hallmark of the Can sound! This is the original line up with vocalist Malcolm Mooney, bassist Holger Czukay, guitarist Michael Karoli, organist Irmin Schmidt, and drummer Jacki Liebezeit – doing their inimitable, revolutionary thing over 4 long tracks. A cathartic, synapse firing masterpiece – and cheaper than hypnosis! Tracks include "Father Cannot Yell", "Mary, Mary, So Contrary", "Outside My Door", and the incredible side long "You Doo Right".
