Kip HanrahanCoup De Tete ... LP
American Clave, 1980. Near Mint- ... $34.99
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.)

Danger DoomMouse And The Mask (10th anniversary edition) ... LP
Lex, 2005. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $28.99 30.98
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

Medallions Featuring Vernon GreenSpeedin' ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s. New Copy ... $11.99 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".

VariousCosmic Machine The Sequel – A Voyage Across French Cosmic & Electronic Avantgarde ... CD
Because (France), 1970s. New Copy Gatefold ... $16.99
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.

✨✧ VariousIn The Beginning There Was Rhythm – The Rise Of Dance Music After Punk ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Early 80s. Used ... $9.99
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.

PK/Half Moon (UK), 1970s/1980s. New Copy 2 LPs ... Out Of Stock
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".

This is prime era hypnotic dub of the finest caliber – originally issued on Jamaican 45s, and hard-to-find for decades!

Doris AllenShell Of A Woman – The Legendary Playground Sessions ... CD
Soulscape (UK), Late 60s/Mid 80s. New Copy ... $13.99 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!

✨✧ 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.

✨✧ Aloe BlaccShine Through ... CD
Stones Throw, 2006. Used ... $2.99
A batch of eclectic postmodern soul that's as original and instantly gratifying as anything we've heard on Stones Throw! Aloe Blacc more than lives up to the expectations we had for him after hearing his first couple of Stones Throw singles. His previous work in the adventurous hip hop outfit Emanon really only hints at his solo work – and it's even more bold in its idiosyncratic approach to an appealing groove! The almost entirely self-produced Shine Through (Oh No and Madlib produce one track each) is rife with an electronic sheen, touching on a bubbling psychedelic soul vibe we've never really heard before. A couple of tracks have guitar, bass, and keys that bring a more organic, but still kind of otherworldly groove – even touching on a cosmic Latin vibe on a couple of tunes! Tracks include "Whole World", a totally re-imagined take on Sam Cooke's "Long Time Coming" (produced by Oh No), "Are You Ready", "Busking", "Bailar", "Nascimento", "Dance For Life", "Patria Mia", "Shine Through", "Caged Birdsong", "Arrive", "Want Me", "One Inna" (produced by Madlib) and "I'm Beautiful".

Omnivore, Early 80s. New Copy ... $15.99 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.

That sublime gem begins the great little set– a record that has a few hits and some even better obscure numbers – the kind of special treasures that make digging through these early albums so great, as we try to piece together the earliest expressions of the Wilson family brilliance. Vocals are great throughout, and titles include "Surfer Moon", "South Bay Surfer", "Surfer Girl", "Catch A Wave", "The Rocking Surfer", "In My Room", "Hawaii", "Surfer's Rule", "Your Summer Dream", and "Little Deuce Coupe".

Stones Throw, 2008. Very Good+ ... $14.99
A mad funky suite from the Beat Konducta – Vol 5 in the evolving, unpredictable series of deep, crackling beatcraft – this one a tribute to Dilla! Dil Cosby Suite is as solid as any of the volumes to date, compellingly funky and in more of Madlib's heady hip hop mode than some of the more psychedelic and experimental efforts before it. That's not to say that Madlib's given up on the oddball flourishes – it's a wild ride, but the emotionally resonant soul samples, some with vocals, but mostly instrumentals, and thumping beats loom large in the mix – and it's as pleasing to our ears as anything Madlib has spun in the past couple years. 22 short bursts of mad genius, with spacey jazz funk, cosmic keys, and swirling samples galore! The tracks aren't listed on the sleeve, but titles include "For My Mans (Prelude)", "The Mystery (Dilla's Still Here)", "Beat Provider (Through The Years)", "The String (Heavy Jones)", "Dirty Hop (The Shuffle)", "Shades Of Pete (Super)", "Rebirth Cycle (Super Soul)" and many more.

Andrew Birkin & Alison CastleJane & Serge – A Family Album (hardcover) ... Book
Taschen, 2015. New Copy ... $34.99 59.99
A surprisingly candid look at one of the most important musical couples of the 20th Century – Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin – a duo who made some incredible sounds together in the French scene of the 60s and 70s – and who were equally important to larger French culture as well! The pair have become the stuff of legend over the years – a romance that began when Serge was 40, and Jane not yet 20 – open, frank, and very sexual, both in their words and music – with a legacy that spanned records, film, and television – and also gave the world the actress Charlotte Gainsbourg as well. This volume's way more than a book – as it collects together shots of the couple and the family taken by Jane's brother Andrew Birkin – and presents the whole thing as if you're looking at a family album in the Birkin/Gainsbourg household! But there's also a smaller booklet of text, as well as a contact sheet of photos, 5 chromogenic photographic prints, a poster, stickers, and even an embroidered patch – all making for a beautifully lavish set of images and goodies! The core book features 176 pages of photos – but there's lots lots more within. Book

If the pressure was high to match the sales and creative strengths of the self-titled solo debut, Toni, composer/producer Babyface and producer LA Reid rise to the challenge – with unforgettable songcraft and a built-to-last production aesthetic, carried to the heavens by Toni's voice.

A legendary lost late 60s soundtrack by Italian composer and sax player Sandro Brugnolini – a stunner that lives up to the title! Fantabulous is a diverse batch of compositions – from upbeat Italian small combo jazz, to moodier, more profoundly cinematic grooves, to creepy little organ and choral vocal bits that presage the giallo soundtrack style, to lighter, kind of comical or carnivalesque sounds. This is really tremendous stuff, and works very well as a stand alone listening experience, though the film it's made for is a real trip!

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. LP, Vinyl record album
