Kip HanrahanCoup De Tete ... LP
American Clave, 1980. Near Mint- ... $14.99
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.)

Stanley CowellWaiting For The Moment ... LP
Galaxy, 1977. Near Mint- ... $6.99
A strangely varied LP from Stanley – one that features a mix of electric and acoustic piano tunes, mostly all played solo, but with the complexity and depth of imagination that always makes Cowell's work so great. The real gems are the electric tunes – like "Sienna – Welcome My Darling, and Waiting For The Moment", "Coup De Grass", and "Today What A Peaceful Day". LP, Vinyl record album

Eugene DeloucheDel's Jazz Biguine – Les Annees Ritmo Paris 1951 to 1953 ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), Early 50s. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 29.98
Very cool jazz from the Paris scene of the early 50s – an assortment of singles released on the Ritmo label, owned by reedman Eugene Delouche – who works here in a very cool blend of Martinique rhythms and modern jazz! The grooves here are a key part of the growing biguine style of the time – and Delouche plays alto and clarinet, and sometimes sings – although a number of other tracks feature vocals by David Martial. Not all tracks are vocal, though – and it's clear that the instrumental component is key here – on tunes that have the same crackling vibe as work from Havana during the same period – but with a very different mix of jazz and rhythms. 2CD set features 48 tracks in all, plus detailed notes in French and English – with titles that include "Missie", "Coup D'Baton", "Tes Yeux", "Les Deux Rivales", "Mina", "Gil Mambo", "Last Spleen", "Martinique", "Baby Baion", "Casita", "Porque Manolo", and "L'Homme Sans Tete".

Savage RepublicTragic Figures (Sordide Sentimental) ... LP
Independent Project/Sordide Sentimental (France), 1982. Very Good+ ... $11.99
An incredible early album from the LA scene – more UK post-punk, with a definite Joy Division influence, than anything else taking place on the west coast at the time! The album was reportedly recorded in a parking garage, and definitely has a dark sound to match – and titles include "Attempted Coup Madagascar", "The Ivory Coast", "Next To Nothing", "Zulu Zulu", "Real Men", and "When All Else Fails". LP, Vinyl record album
(Very cool French pressing – with booklet!)

VariousAngola 70s Vol 2 – 1974 to 1978 ... CD
Buda (France), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $12.99 15.99
The third volume in Buda's superb Angola series chronicles one of the country's most potent musical eras! The tracks here were produced during a period of deep political uncertainty, as three different factions vied for power. A failed 1974 coup left many of the performers included on this great CD –Sofia Rosa, Urbano de Castro, David Ze, and Artur Nunes – dead and the music industry in tatters. But the artists live on through this astonishing work. The CD includes it's fare share of familiar Angolan forms like the jaunty sembe and the achingly beautiful lamento, but there's so much more – a bounty of sensual, slinking grooves embroidered with killer guitar work and soulful, understated singing. This presents a whole different side of African music. Tracks include "Otjikenlu Ya Yndunduma" by Gimba, "Tchi Kolona" by Duo Misoso, "Solo do Maqui" by Kisangela, "Lamento do Mae" by Os Jovens do Prenda, and "Manazinha" by Carlos Burity. CD

✨✧ Danger DoomMouse And The Mask (Metalface Version – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Lex, 2005. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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 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 sorta 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. Includes bonus tracks from the Occult Hymn EP and 2 unreleased tracks. 23 tracks in all! CD

✨✧ Brian ColemanCheck The Technique Vol 2 – More Liner Notes For Hip Hop Junkies (paperback) ... Book
Wax Facts Press, 2014. New Copy ... 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

CasanovaAll The Loving Couples ... LP
GNP, Early 70s. Very Good+ ... $14.99
An excellent little soundtrack – funky, groovy, and with some great vocal numbers that have a kind of trippy sunshine approach! The film's got a nitty-gritty "couples" take from the times – and the music backs that up with some great instrumentation in a jamming funky jazz mode that's also topped off by some trippier touches, and even a few bossa moments! There's a feel overall that's almost a bit like a Lalo Schifrin soundtrack – and side two features some really wonderful bits that have vocal passages interwoven with music – in a groovy as groovy can be way that we really love. Titles include "Rock Love", "Psyched Out", "Funky Love", "Fun & Games", and "All The Loving Couples End Theme – Including All Of The Commercials". LP, Vinyl record album

Neal HeftiOdd Couple ... LP
Dot, Late 60s. Very Good- ... $0.99
The genius of Neal Hefti comes through for us again! Have you ever stopped to listen to the Odd Couple theme? Really listen to it – break it apart with your ears, and let the strange and complex nature of the groove sink into your brain? It's mad stuff, we tell you – one of the most genius moments ever in 60s scoring! This soundtrack features a few versions of Hefti's amazing tune – including one stunning vocal version, with very strange lyrics about Oscar and Felix that almost seem to "out" them as a real couple! The record mixes music from the film with snippets of dialogue – and titles include "Clean Poker", "The Odd Couple", "End Title", "Curse Of The Cat People", "Dirty Poker", "Metropole", and "Down With The Lights".

✨✧ Tony Randall & Jack KlugmanOdd Couple Sings ... LP
Phase 4/London, 1973. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Terrible! But pretty darn wonderful, too – at least if you dig The Odd Couple! Considering their roots in Broadway, Randall and Klugman should be pretty decent singers – but instead, they decide to camp it up for this one, as they spend a lot of time arguing about and during sweet old-fashioned tunes like "The Inch Worm", "Johnny One Note", "Brush Up Your Shakespeare", and "Together Wherever We Go" – plus a very groovy version of "You're So Vain". The record also features the extended "Odd Couple Opera", the track "Friendship', and "Applause, Applause". Arrangements by Brit Roland Shaw – probably because nobody in America would touch the record, and an Englishman like Shaw hadn't heard of the show yet! In a great gatefold cover, too.

Aloe BlaccGood Things ... LP
Stones Throw, 2010. New Copy 2LP ... $16.99 17.98
Cinematic soul rooted in the rawer organ, drums and horns vibes that resonated deeply in records from north to south in the 70s – done with a lean, tight and head nodding groove no doubt informed by Aloe Blacc's own roots in hip hop – on his best album yet and one of best raw soul styled albums ever to come from our friends at Stones Throw! Good Things is a giant leap ahead of Shine Through, Aloe's previous full length on the label. We loved that record for its gritty, unique approach to funky soul, but, Good Things reaches for the heights of Aloe's heroes from Donny Hathaway to Marvin Gaye – and comes closer than we could have imagined! It's produced by the Truth & Soul team, with a timeless funk & soul vibe comparable to their work with the great Lee Fields. We have a feeling we'll still be listening to this album 10-15-20 years from now. Essential! Titles include the underground breakout "I Need A Dollar", an incredible cover of The Velvet Underground's "Femme Fatale" (we must have dropped the needle on that 50 times in the first couple days we had it), "Green Lights", "Miss Fortune", "Good Things", "Loving You Is Killing Me", "Mama Hold My Hand", "Hey Brother" and more.

✨✧ BarrabasWild Safari/Woman ... 12-inch
RCA/Get On Down, 1972. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $12.99 14.98
A couple of the biggest, funkiest early 70s jams by legendary Spanish combo Barrabas – masters at a wild mix of funk, soul, and rock at this early point – with a raw, percussion heavy grit underneath soulful vocal and funky rhythms! "Wild Safari" works on a few different levels. Starting with steady, stripped down percussion, building with gritty lead and soul chant backing vocals before hitting the unforgettable, floor shaking chorus, then breaking down and doing it again – all the more thrilling on repeat! "Woman" ratchets up the funky guitar groove on the equally tremendous flipside. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Really nicely done 12" by Get On Down – with a great picture sleeve!)

BeckGuero ... LP

The return of avant pop/hip hop-inspired, playful and fun Beck after the stunning turn into melancholy and more baroque pop sound of Sea Change a couple years prior – working once again with The Dust Brothers! 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. Titles include "E-Pro", "Girl", "Black Tambourine", "Scarecrow", "Go It Alone", "Farewell Ride", "Rental Call", "Emergency Exit" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

BlondieHunter ... LP
Chrysalis, 1982. Sealed ... Just Sold Out!
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.

Blu & ExileIn The Beginning (Before The Heavens) ... LP
Dirty Science/Fat Beats, 2007/2017. New Copy 2LP ... $19.99 22.98
Classic level indie hip hop from Blu & Exile – soulful craft from the first decade of the millennium, from the same sessions that produced the modern classic Below The The Heavens – material that struck us timeless at the time, and still holds true all these years later! Just a couple or 3 tracks have seen light of day in the years since Below The Heavens, and it's pretty stunning how fresh it feels after all this time in the vaults, a real testament creative high the duo was riding at the time. Includes "Soul Provider", "Another Day", "Constellations", "All These Ladies", "Party Of Two", "Back To Basics", "On The Radio", "Life Is A Gamble" with Donel Smokes, Trek Life & Co$$, "Things We Say" with Aloe Blacc, "Sold The Soul", "Hard Workers" feat Blame One, "Stress Off The Chest" 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

Jive, 1989. Very Good- ... $14.99
Classic Boogie Down Productions circa '89 – with prime street poetry from KRS, perfectly raw beats and overall peak end of the 80s production! Blueprint is an apt title for a couple reasons – the beats aren't what we'd call spare, but they're raw and unvarnished – a perfect framework for KRS's clear, concise and tough rhymes. It's also the blueprint for some of the best, toughest, street conscious hip hop to come. It's a unique snapshot of the time, too, coming at the crossroads of hip hop's rise from the 80s streets to the mainstream, with KRS One standing for realness right there at the brink. Includes "Jack Of Spades", "The Blueprint", "You Must Learn", "Who Protects Us From You?", "Why Is That?", "Breath Control", and "Bo! Bo! Bo!". LP, Vinyl record album

Casablanca, 1979. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Late 70s grooves from Brooklyn Dreams for Casablanca – with the crossover hit "Heaven Knows" with Donna Summer – but overall it'sa pretty sweet set of late disco era numbers with slow building arrangements and harmony vocals that show a love and respect for the previous couple decades of group soul and R&B. The tunes are insistently catchy throughout and the arrangements grow more grandly as the tracks groove along, with a couple of more mellow numbers, too. Titles Include "Make It Last", "That's Not The Way That Your Mama Taught You To Be", "Sleepless Nights/Send Me A Dream", "Long Distance", "Street Man", "First Love", "Heaven Knows" feat Donna Summer and more.
