Oliver LakeNTU – Point From Which Creation Begins ... CD CD format
Passin' Thru/Universal Sound (UK), 1971. New Copy ... $22.99
Reedman Oliver Lake at his most creative – stepping out here on a sublime set of 70s improvisations – all put together with a really spiritual feel! There's a very open, collaborative feel to the music – and the set was recorded in St Louis, at a time when Lake was a key part of that city's scene – and who here also seems able to attract some other musicians from the AACM in Chicago as well! As a result, the album's a wonderful document of the new ideas bursting forth at the start of the 70s – that richly creative moment when local scenes were coming together in various cities to find new ways of jazz beyond Coltrane and Dolphy – giving a player like Lake some of the most imaginative outlets of his career. Oliver plays alto, soprano, flute, and other small instruments – and other players include Baikida Carroll and Floyd Leflore on trumpets, Joseph Bowie on trombone, John Hicks on piano, Clovis Bordeaux on electric piano, Don Officer on bass, Charles Bobo Shaw on drums, and Don Moye on congas too. Titles include "Africa", "Tse Lane", "Eriee", "Zip", and "Electric Freedom". CD

Mushroom/Warner (Australia), 1990/1993/1997/2002. New Copy 4 CDs ... $24.99
A great run of work from Archie Roach – one of the most important talents to come from the Australian rock scene in the 90s – heard here on four albums recorded for Mushroom Records, plus a host of bonus tracks as well! Archie's got a rootsy style that's not only timeless, but also has a surprising global range – that depth of songwriting and expression that brewed up in Australia over decades, then almost surprised the world when Roach and his generation (including Paul Kelly) got more worldwide exposure. The 4CD set features 51 tracks in all, plus great notes – the albums Charcoal Lane, Jamu Dreaming, Looking For Butter Boy, and Sensual Being – plus demo tracks, live recordings, and early cassette songs!

21st CreationBreak Thru ... LP LP format
Gordy, 1978. Near Mint- ... $8.99
An obscure Motown group from the end of the 70s – 21st Creation had a strident uptempo group sound that reminds us of some of the more successful disco hits of Tavares from the same time. The arrangements are mostly club-oriented – handled by Willie Hutch, Gene Page, and Harold Johnson – and you can hear the group's style to best effect on tracks like their remake of Marvin Gaye's "After The Dance", Willie Hutch's "You Gotta Dance To My Music", or the hard grooving "Thanks For Saving Me". Not totally standout material, but with a few nice moments. Other tracks include "Funk Machine", "Tailgate", and "Baby, I'm For Real". LP, Vinyl record album

New Bulbous CreationYou Won't Remember Dying (with bonus download) ... LP LP format
Numero, 1969. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A record that definitely lives up to the promise of its cover – especially the creepy image of a skeleton shooting up on the front! Bulbous Creation hail from the same Kansas scene documented on Numero's Cavern Sound compilation – but unlike some of the other groups, they've got more than enough going on to offer up a full album here – a really heady, tripped-out batch of music that may well be some of the weirdest ever recorded in that legendary cave in Missouri! The production is almost a bit muddy at times – or maybe it's the way the instruments are performed – which creates this even more sinister feel to the whole thing – as if you've surprised the group during a very private moment, or stumbled upon them performing some ritual in the woods! The song titles say an awful lot about the record, too – and include "Satan", "Hooked", "Under The Black Sun", "Fever Machine Man", and "End Of The Page". LP, Vinyl record album

Front loaded with moodier, acoustic-based songs that build into heavier rock as the record plays on – with some really great use of sound effects for added drama on here and there! Titles include "Lather", "In Time", "Star Track", "Chushingura", "If You Feel", "Ice Cream Phoenix", "The House At Pooniel Corners" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

New 9th CreationBubble Gum ... CD CD format
Rite Track/Solaris, 1975. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A classic album of jazzed-up funk – the one lasting legacy by this oft-sampled group! 9th Creation originally hailed from west of the Bay Area scene of the 70s – and this album was recorded in Oakland with the same sweet jazzy finish as work by some of the other big Northern California funk acts of the time – especially Pleasure, who with their sharp sense of a groove are probably the closest comparison to the group's sound. The album is best known for the cut "Bubble Gum" – a great number with lots of jazzy changes, and a modern funky groove that still sounds pretty darn fresh – but the whole album is totally great, and filled with plenty of other songs that have the same feel as the title cut! Tracks include "Sexy Girl", "Quit It", "Falling In Love", "We Need Love", and "Rule Of Mind". CD

New Raul DeSouzaSoul & Creation ... CD CD format
Pao (Austria), 2007. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Great work from trombonist Raul De Souza – a sweet blend of jazz, soul, and his Brazilian roots – and kind of a small combo outing that recreates the magic of some of his best records from the 70s! The vibe is nicely laidback – small group instrumentation, without too much in the way of production – and the group soars with great energy that comes from Raul's trombone, the bass of Cameron Brown, drums of Idris Muhammad, and guitar of Allegre Corea – who also scats a bit on a few great numbers! There's also some Fender Rhodes in the mix, and a few tunes feature sweet vocals from Maria Pentschev – a singer we don't know at all, but who's got this warmly raspy sound that's mighty nice. Titles include "Splendid Night", "Palco", "Funky Man", "Love Is On Our Way", "No No No", and "Djavan". CD

Nikki Sudden & Roland S HowardKiss You Kidnapped Charabanc ... LP LP format
Creation/Numero, 1987. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 22.98
Some of the moodiest music that Nikki Sudden recorded in the 80s – and that's saying a lot, given his other albums! The record's a duet with Roland S Howard – of Birthday Party and Lydia Lunch collaborative fame – and Howard has Nikki really moving into noisier territory – both with the guitar parts used on the tunes, and in the overall presentation of the lyrics and ideas of the tunes! There's no other band on the set, which gives the music a looser, less-structured feel than some of Sudden's other records – really letting the vocal and instrumental concepts ruminate in a space that's all their own – with completely sublime results. Titles include "Feather Beds", "A Quick Thing", "Crossroads", "Don't Explain", "Better Blood", and "Rebel Grave". LP, Vinyl record album

New Nikki Sudden & The JacobitesTexas ... LP LP format
Creation/Numero, 1986. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The stunning Creation Records debut of Nikki Sudden – a record that has the solo Sudden sounding even tighter and more classic than ever – yet without any sort of commercial leanings at all! The songs here flow effortlessly from Nikki's hands – instant classics that were completely unappreciated at the time, given how un-80s Sudden's style is overall – work that would nestle down nicely next to classics from the Rolling Stones' generation, but which also has a more stripped-down, less-posturing feel – one that comes from Nikki's roots in punk with the Swell Maps. Titles include "Jangle Town", "Death Is Hanging Over Me", "Such A Little Girl", "Dumb Angel", "Wedding Dress", and "When I Left You". LP, Vinyl record album

Nikki Sudden's first couple records for the Creation label – the hugely influential, if somewhate modest selling Texas and Dead Men Tell No Tales – in 2CD set, with a lot of excellent bonus tracks! Sudden was always one to balance experimental creative tendencies with more immediately engaging classic rock influences, going back to his days in Swell Map, and those strengths are in full force here in the mid-to-late 80s. Jangly guitars and emotionally resonant lyricism abound, and you can truly sense the impact he had on some of best indie rock songwriters of the late 80s onward. Essential stuff! Texas includes "Jangle Town", "Death Is Hanging Over Me", "Broken Tooth", "Dumb Angel/Stuka", "Wedding Dress", "Deppers Bridge" and more, plus the bonus tracks "Back To The Coast", "Breaking Lines", "The Last Bandit" and more. "Dead Men Tell No Tales" includes "When I Cross The Line", "Dog Latin", "Cupful Of Change", "(Girl With The) Wooden Leg" and "Kiss At Dawn" and more, plus bonus tracks "Flowerbed Romance", "When She Smiles", "The Ragged School" and more. The 2CDs include the 2 complete original albums, plus 11 bonus tracks in all! CD

Gee/Warner (Japan), 1958. New Copy ... $9.99
A wonderful collection of late 50s vocal group material – all of it originally recorded for the excellent Gee label, one of the best NY indies of the time! The tracks here are as tight as anything in the pop realm at the time, but still really retain all the rougher, more personal vibe of the streetcorner years – a quality that's furthered by the relatively sparse instrumentation on most numbers – usually just a small rhythm combo to back up the soaring vocals! There's a few big hits here, mixed with more obscure numbers – and despite the teen cover, the album's got a rock-solid, all-soul vibe throughout. Titles include "Come Back My Love" by The Wrens, "Little Girl Of Mine" and "Can't We Be Sweethearts" by The Cleftones, "Nature's Creation" by The Valentines, "Three Wishes" and "My Memories Of You" by The Harptones, and "Gee" and "I Love You So" by The Crows.

Delta Acoustic/Wah Wah (Spain), 1974. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $24.99
One of the darkest concept albums we've ever heard – a set dedicated to creation and the "planet of man" – but really just an amazing experiment in sound! Manfred Schunke put the record together to explore his "artificial head" recording system – and it's got this incredible stereo interplay throughout – sometimes weird sounds leaping back and forth from speaker to speaker, sometimes these loud industrial noises looming from each – and creating this richly organic feeling of sound and soil! There's vocals on the set – some sung, some spoken – but most of the music is heavy on echo, noise, textures, and tones – at a sonic level that's more striking than most experiments to follow! LP, Vinyl record album
(Great heavy vinyl reissue – very limited, with insert too!)

Mode, Mid 60s. New Copy ... $23.99 29.98
Two amazing films that were originally done for French Television in the 60s – as part of a series put together by Luc Ferrari to focus on the giants of 20th Century serious music! The DVD features two different shows, both pretty incredible – the first, a series of rehearsals for "Momente", a crucial 60s composition by Karlheinz Stockhausen – with performances here by soprano Martina Arroyo, and both Alfons and Aloys Kontarsky on electric organs! The second film is titled "Hommage A Edgard Varese" – a work dedicated to the composer, who died shortly before its creation – making for a tribute to Varese – featuring a rehearsal of "Deserts", extracts of a performance of "Ionisation", and comments from Marcel Duchamp, Iannis Xenakis, Olivier Messiaen, Pierre Schaeffer, and others.

T Neck, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A stone classic from the Isleys – the album that kicked off their successful T-Neck label, and established that mighty Isleys sound that would have such a huge influence in the 70s! The title cut of the set – "It's Your Thing" – is a well-known classic that really sets the tone for the rest of the record – mixing guitar and chunky rhythms into a righteous funky style of soul that was miles away from the Brothers' earlier work on Motown and RCA. And believe it or not, the rest of the record's even better than the title cut – filled with sinister, sexy numbers that bristle with energy that's still heard best here at the point of its creation! Other gems include "Give the Women What They Want", "He's Got Your Love", "I Know Who You Been Socking It To", "Don't Give It Away", "He's Got Your Love", "Save Me", "Feel Like The World", and "Somebody Been Messin".

Killer Latin soul! This record is one of the hardest to find from the late 60's boogaloo era, and it's a massive stormer filled with tasty grooves! The band is small and tight, with a 2-sax frontline, for an extra-soulful sound. Vocals are in English and Spanish, and the album wails away like a siren out of control. Things kick off with the organ-heavy instrumental, "Camel Walk" – then they leap into one of the catchiest vocal numbers ever from Fania, the tasty "Afro-Shingaling" – which starts with Ray Ramirez shouting "I just come from Africa – and I learned to do the Shing-a-ling!" Other nice ones include "Chevere", "Guajira", and "Creation" – but the whole thing's great! LP, Vinyl record album

Fantastic stuff in the quintessential Black Ark style – right up there with the Lee Perry & The The Upsetters more famous material of the era – heavy, bouncing bass, hazy atmosphere, tricked out bits of melodica and other atmospheric washes of sound – plus some soul-steeped vocals in the mix, too. Includes "Truth And Rights", "Roaring Lion" and "Generation From Creation" by Jah Lion & The Upsetters, "Loco Negril" by Althea And Donna, "Pride" by Augustus Pablo & The Upsetters", "Upsetters Shuffle", "Big Gal Sally", "Big Boy Wally", "Rocky Road Dub", "Anasawa Dub", "Dub Dyon", "Emotional Dub", "Dub Stand" and more.

Pure genius from Bud Powell's mid 50s run for Verve Records – some of his sharpest-edged recordings of the decade! Despite the "blue" feeling of the title, there's a very lively sound going on here – one that's often crackling with strong rhythmic impulses, and which displays a never-tiring sense of invention and creation. The material is culled from two different sessions – one with George Duvivier on bass and Art Taylor on drums, the other with Percy Heath on bass and Kenny Clarke on drums – both teams that do a good job of keeping up with Powell's imagination and inspiration. Titles include the classic "Dance Of The Infidels", plus "Lullaby In Rhythm", "Mediocre", "All The Things You Are", "Hey George", and "Star Eyes". CD

An incredible set of low rolling, hypnotic dub genius from true reggae Revolutionaries – a batch of amazing tunes centered around the amazing drums of Sly Dunbar – cut in the mid-to-late 70s height of the Channel One groove! This might be the strongest collection of dubs that Pressure Sounds has ever compiled – benchmark work all the way – from the chugging, echoey guitar groove, to the heavy bass lines, to the sublime vocals. Amazing stuff mined from singles on the Channel One, Well Charge and Disco Mix labels.

A great soundtrack moment for Tangerine Dream – and one of their darkest, too! Bill Friedkin's films are always pretty darn spooky – but the music of the group definitely adds a lot here – bringing in these coldly hypnotic passages that really work wonders with the images on the screen – and, in a way, also help Tangerine Dream compress their often longform electronic musings into more of an "essence" by focusing on scene-based compositions! And even without the film, the album still really stands strongly on its own – a great maturation moment for Tangerine Dream, but one that still has all the edge and darkness of their best early recordings too. Titles include "Rain Forest", "The Call", "Creation", "Vengeance", "Search", and "Grind". CD

Some of the warmest grooves we've heard so far from Osunlade – a beautiful selection of tracks that work perfectly together – almost as if the artist himself had a hand in their creation! The tracks follow strongly in the vein of organic house that Osunlade's always brought us – but they also seem to have a special sort of glow here – one that's more subtle, but still rhythmically bold – never too over the top in the way the instrumentation glides along, with especially great work on keyboards. Most tracks are instrumental – and titles include "Disconnected Thoughts" by Andrew Soul, "Sunspot" by Steven Tang, "Build Her" by Professor Delacroix, "Late Night Thinking" by Estroe, "Palm Leaves (Mr Fingers Afropshycojungledub inst)" by Gerd, "Atlanta" by Ananada Project, "Believe In Reflecting" by Roaming, and "Phantom" by Tomas Svensson.

A treasure trove of great funky bits from the last few years – 19 tracks from the Soul Fire/Truth & Soul Catalog – none of which have ever been on CD before! The work here is all great – very much in the best mode of the deep funk underground, but also showing the unusual sounds and styles the T&S crew have come up with on recent records – modes that are far more than retro funk, and which have really set them apart from the Desco and Daptone scene before them! Added to the newer cuts are also some great rare numbers too – dark little gems reissued by Truth & Soul that sit nicely alongside the current tracks. Given that any one of the singles would cost you about half the price of the CD, you're getting a tremendous funky bargain here – nearly an hour of great music that includes "Honey Dove" and "Do You Love Me" by Lee Fields & The Expressions, "Feeling Good" by Bama & The Family, "Easy Easy Easy" and "KC Stomp" by Timothy McNealy, "CREAM" and "Glaciers Of Ice" by El Michels Affair, "Gotta Clean Up The World (parts 1 & 2)" by Funky Music Machine, "So Glad" by The Evil D's, "These Moments" and "Money Is King" by The Expressions, "Creation" by El Michels Affair, "Lima Blues" and "Mas Y Mas" by Bronx River Parkway, and "Drums Of Asiko" by Asiko.

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".

An incredible double dose of boogie funk and clubby grooves – selected by Joey Negro and Sean P, and filled with heavy basslines, funky drums, squelching synths, and floor-shaking rare groovers from the late 70s and early 80s! Joey Negro and Sean P are master compilers of rare funk & soul – and Supafunkanova is right up there with their best work – easily at the same level as Joey's other compilations and his own work as Sunburst Band – and definitely living up to Sean's decades-long reputation as one of the best crate diggers in the world.

New Sidney PoitierSidney Poitier Reads Poetry Of The Black Man ... LP LP format
United Artists, 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pretty compelling album for Sidney – a selection of poems written by African Americans – stretching back across a variety of styles, and read to musical accompaniment and strange production effects! Sidney's joined by Doris Belack, who provides a female voice on a few numbers – and the overall style of the album is quite dark, almost somber – with lots of echo on the vocals, and added percussion, harp, piano, and other incidental sound bits. Titles include "When Malinda Sings", "Mother To Son", "The Debt", "At Candle Lightin Time", "The Creation", "Yet I Do Marvel", "Debate Of Dark Brothers", "Epigram", "We Wear The Mask", and "When You Have Forgotten Sunday".

New Queen LatifahAll Hail The Queen ... LP LP format
Tommy Boy, 1989. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
It's easy to forget this many years down the road that before TV, before films and before her more commercial LPs, Queen Latifah was a dope MC who could bring it with the best of them when she stepped to the mic. Mark the 45 King delivers tight beats for most of the LP that also features production by Prince Paul, Daddy-O and KRS One. Includes "Princess Of The Posse", "Ladies First", "Wrath Of My Madness", "Mama Gave Birth To The Soul Children" with De La Soul, "Come Into My House", "Evil That Men Do", "A King And Queen Creation", "Latifah's Law", "Dance For Me" and more. A classic female rap LP, what the heck, it's a classic hip hop LP without any qualifiers! LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has some light stains along the opening.)

Shawn LeeGolden Age Against The Machine ... CD CD format
BBE (UK), 2014. New Copy ... $9.99
A whole new side of Shawn Lee's talents – an album that mixes his great ear for funk with rhymes from a series of guest MCs – all at a level that really takes us back to true school productions of the 90s! Lee's got plenty of 60s and 70s funk and jazz elements in the mix – and a number of tracks are instrumentals, which showcase his deft instrumental creations without any lyrics at all. The vocal tracks are great, too – and feature performances from Ohmega Watts, Braille, Think Tank, MC Shawny Shawn, Princess, Earl Zinger, and others – on tracks that include a great remake of "We Got The Jazz", plus "Wake Up", "Back To The Future", "Stay On Course", "Forward To The Past", "Ashes To Ashes", "Schoolhouse Funk", "Baby Breakin", "Marimba", "Hip Hop Harp", and "Big Bad Wolf".

Mats ObergImprovisational Two.Five ... CD CD format
Caprice (Sweden), 2014. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
Really really great work from pianist Mats Oberg – a musician we've always loved, but who really blows us away with this solo set of improvisations! Mats has this free-flowing sense of imagination that really loves us breathless – a way of creating on the keys of the piano that almost rivals Keith Jarrett at his 70s best, but which also has a more soulful focus and sense of direction too – so that each of the creations feel like preconceived songs more than spontaneous moments of music. The package has images of Mats posed before vintage albums by Berndt Egerbladh and a life-sized image of Stevie Wonder – and we might well say that the music has a soulful core that lies somewhere between the spirit of these two great musicians of the 70s. Titles include "Song For Amy", "Charlie Boy & Verkstadsbossa", "Sarek", "You Shall Find Your Way", "Ossians Vast", and "November Min Van". CD

Lee Perry & The UpsetterUpsetter Collection ... CD CD format
Trojan (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $12.99
A nice selection of Upsetters tracks, and other Perry productions, from 1969-1973. Though he had yet to make the mothership connection through the Black Ark, his vision is fully formed on all these funky numbers, and it's clear where much of his inspiration was coming from with "Freak Out Skank"and other numbers like "Cold Sweat". A total of 16 groovy Scratch creations, mostly by the Upsetters: "Return Of Django", "Django Shoots First", "The Vampire", "Drugs & Poison", "Sipreano", "Black IPA", "Tipper Special", and the "French Connection", plus The Bleechers "Check Him Out", The Gatherers "Words Of My Mouth", Carlton & His Shoes "Better Days", and the Perry numbers "Cow Thief Skank", "Bucky Skank" and "Kill them All".

John Zorn/DitherJohn Zorn's Olympiad Vol 1 – Dither Plays Zorn ... CD CD format
Tzadik, 2015. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98
Early "game" pieces by John Zorn – the kind of groundbreaking improvisational creations that made him an instant legend on the New York scene – performed here by the Dither quartet of guitars and other stringed instruments! The pieces here all pre-date the famous Cobra – perhaps the best-known of Zorn's game works – and Dither presents the music in different modes, with a few different performances of some of the works – some electric, some acoustic, and some mixed. Includes performances of "Hockey", "Curling", and "Fencing". CD

VariousFunk From The Vaults Of The Zodiac/Fungus Associated Labels ... CD CD format
Essential, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99
Rare funk from two great indie labels of the 70s – the Fungus imprint, which handled a fair bit of Swamp Dogg side projects – and the excellent Zodiac, which was home to some of the deepest artists on the Chicago scene at the start of the 70s! Both labels had a great ear for the harder, grittier side of the spectrum – which you'll hear here right away – and they also selected excellent singers who could really belt home a lyric over a funky rhythm! If you're looking for deep funk that goes past the usual Stax or Atlantic material, this is a great place to dig – and titles include "Come On Back" by Brothers Of Soul, "That's How It Is" by Woman, "Wonderful Night" by Candace Love, "Fever Fever Fever" by Bobby Eaton, "I Know You Love Me" by Sisters Of Love, "Smell The Funk" by The Inner Drive, "If" by Lovehorn, "Love Can Slip Away" by Chuck Bernard, "Let's Get A Groove Going On (part 2)" by Ruby Andrews, "Foot Steps" by The Creations, and "Let's Do It Again (parts 3 & 4)" by Charlie Whitehead.

Columbia/Legacy, 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A long-overdue recognition of the blues contributions of Willie Dixon – a set that pulls him out of the indie ghetto and pushes him firmly into the mainstream with this key release on Columbia Records! Yet despite that placement, the style is nicely down home – a strong recreation of older Chicago blues modes by producer Abner Spector – one that has Willie singing versions of his classic tunes like "Back Door Man", "The Seventh Son", "Little Red Rooster", "I'm Your Hoochie Coochie Man", and "The Same Thing".

Philips (France), 1960s/1970s/1980s. New Copy 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A vinyl-only collection that features some of the best bits ever from the amazing Serge Gainsbourg – a total of 25 tracks that represent the cream of the crop of his legendary music from France! The set runs the gamut from early Latin and jazz tracks to funky late 60s numbers, slinky 70s sex tunes, and some of his best rhythmic creations from later years too – in a lineup that includes "Bonnie & Clyde", "La Javanaise", "Sous Le Soleil Exactement", "Elisa", "69 Annee Erotique", "Manon", "Comic Strip", "Initials BB", "Qui Est In Qui Est Out", "Je T'Aime Mon Non Plus", "L'Anamour", "Ballade De Melody Nelson", "Requiem Pour Un C", "Nazi Rock", "Sea Sex & Sun", "Ecce Homo", "Ford Mustang", and "Marilou Reggae".

New Femi KutiDay By Day ... CD CD format
Mercer Street, 2008. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
It's been a long time since we've heard from Femi Kuti – but the wait's definitely been worth it, as he emerges here with a really fresh groove! There's still some elements of older Afro Funk on the set – but the rhythms, instrumentation, and overall presentation has a newly bold approach – one that's fueled by the political unrest and social issues of the previous few years – pushing Kuti away from historical recreation, into territory that's a lot more urgent and important! At times, the grooves are a lot leaner than before – but meaner, too – really pushed heavily with percussion and keyboards, and burning with the sort of fire we hope will ignite action in the coming post-Bush generation. Kuti calls his group "Positive Force" for good reason – and the set's filled with righteous numbers that include "Oyimbo", "Eh Oh", "Day By Day", "You Better Ask Yourself", "Do You Know", "Tell Me", "Tension Grip Africa", and "Let's Make History".

New VariousKeb Darge & Paul Weller Present Lost & Found – Real R&B Sound ... CD CD format
BBE (UK), Late 50s/1960s/Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic compilation of stirring soul, raw r&b, and all around amazing group and solo numbers from the first wave years of the 50s onward into the 70s – put together by impeccable taste maker Keb Darge and the unstoppable, soul reverent Paul Weller! This second Lost & Found set from BBE picks up on strains of the original set, which was compiled by Darge & Cut Chemist and focused on jump blues & rockabilly. This one touches on the former, but brings in boundless soul numbers in place of the latter, from stripped down r&b, to soaring group soul harmonies, to more arranged numbers that still carry a gritty soul spirit. 15 selections by Keb Darge and 13 selections by Paul Weller for 28 tracks in all! Darge's choice selections include "They Call Me Big Momma" by Big Mama Thornton, "Come On Back" by Brothers Of Soul, "You Don't Love Me" by Epitome Of Sound", "A Dream" by The Creations, "I Want You" by The Cadets, "Don't Forget To Remember" by The Great Experience and more. Paul Weller's choice jams include "Hang On There" by The Intruders, "All I Do Is Think About You" by Tammi Terrell, "Wear It On Your Face" by The Dells, "Ain't No Big Thing" by The Radiants, "The Ice-Man" by Billy Watkins, "I Got Love If You Want It" by Slim Harpo and more.

New Mike CooperPlaces I Know/The Machine Gun Co ... CD CD format
Dawn/Paradise Of Bachelors, 1971/1972. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A pair of wonderful albums from British folkie Mike Cooper – both recorded for the Dawn Records label, in a really genre-breaking style! Places I Know blends Cooper's acoustic guitar and rootsy vocals with some very compelling arrangements from Mike Gibbs – the British jazz talent who was already known for his larger ensemble creations at the time, but who works here in these really subtle ways – to inflect Cooper's core inspirations with just some slight instrumental colors, tones, and phrases on most numbers – while Cooper brings in the core Machine Gun Co group on a few more. The result is a record that's way more than familiar folk – and arguably a lot hipper than most of the British acid folk of the time, too – on titles that include "Night Journey", "Paper & Smoke", "Country Water", "Time To Time", "Goodbye Blues Goodbye", and "Places I Know". The Machine Gun Co album is a partner record to Places I Know – recorded in the same sessions, but with tracks that are longer, and even more openly expressive – all with backings from the sweet Machine Gun Co quartet, a group with some especially nice electric piano from Alan Cook! Heavy use of that instrument really works against some of the folksier elements in Cooper's music – with these blocks of warm sound and color that really illuminate the tunes, and almost unlock a new level in the vocals. Cooper plays a bit of electric guitar at times – and titles include "So Glad That I Found You", "Lady Anne", "Midnight Words", and "Song For Abigail". CD
