Bulbous CreationYou Won't Remember Dying (with bonus download) ... LP
Numero, 1969. New Copy ... $14.99 19.98
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

CreationCreation ... LP
Atco, 1974. Very Good+ ... $6.99
A pretty nice record with a colorful cover that always catches our eye when crate-digging! The group's half-soul, half-rock – and plays with some righteous touches that include a bit of jazzy riffing and the occasional reggae undercurrent. Carol Stallings lays down some great lead vocals on a few tracks, and Leon Patillo seems to lead the group on keyboards and male vocals – as well as write a good portion of the tracks. The album's got a nice compressed style that sits nicely between genres, and which could have crossed the group over big – and titles include "Joy", "Facts", "Burnin Out My Youth", "I'm In Love", "Nothing Can Stop Us Now", "Survival", and "It's Gonna Be Alright".

CreationOur Music Is Red With Purple Flashes ... CD
Demon (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $12.99
One of the great lost groups of the UK scene of the 60s – not lost to UK audiences, or to hipsters over the generations – but still an act that never made the impact on these shores that they should! The Creation are step in step right up there with early material by The Who or Small Faces – and share a similar groundbreaking re-fusion of American roots into a new London groove – all with searing guitars, clever wordplay, and a cutting-edge spirit that may well have kept them off our charts – but which makes them so great to discover all these many years later. You might have caught a few of their songs over the years – thanks to soundtrack placement from directors like Wes Anderson, or covers by many of their bigger fans – but this overstuffed 24 track set shows the full picture of the group's genius – on titles that include "Making Time", "Painter Man", "Biff Bang Pow", "Nightmares", "If I Stay Too Long", "I Am The Walker", "Can I Join Your Band"," How Does It Feel To Feel", "The Girls Are Naked", "Uncle Bert", "Try & Stop Me", and "Through My Eyes".

Raul DeSouzaSoul & Creation ... CD
Pao (Austria), 2007. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
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

Earlier on the group had a more R&B indebted groove, but there move into psychedelia on Creation is pretty groovy – still with what at the core, but with a new air of strangeness and moodiness. Includes "Six Feet Down", "Earthless", "I Put A Spell On You", "Speed", "Painted Woman", "Pale Dream", "Forgot To Begot", "A Garden Where Nothing Grows" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Rufus HarleyRe-Creation Of The Gods ... LP
Ankh, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
One of the most legendary albums of jazz funk ever recorded! Rufus Harley was a saxophone player who also picked up the bagpipes for a few excellent 60s albums for Atlantic Records – and although those records are great, this 1972 independent album is a real mind blower! By the time of this set, Rufus had really stretched out – both creatively and spiritually – working his standard bagpipe jazz groove into a much trippier sound, one that explored the tonal and modal properties of the instrument. Not only that, Rufus got a lot funkier than ever before – working here with organist Bill Mason, a sonic contemporary of Leon Spencer and Charles Earland – and the resultant mix of organ and bagpipes creates a monstrous sound that's unlike anything we can describe! The album's a mixture of Sufi and Biblical statements – fused into long funky jazz tracks, stretching out into some incredible grooves. Includes the classic "Malika", plus the cuts "Etymology", "Hypothesis", and "Nobody Knows The Trouble I've Seen", done in a great heavy version! LP, Vinyl record album

9th CreationBubble Gum ... CD
Rite Track/Solaris, 1975. New Copy ... $12.99 15.98
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

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!

Bob SpitzBarefoot In Babylon – The Creation Of The Woodstock Music Festival 1969 ... Book
Plume, 1979/2014. New Copy ... $4.99 18.00
An insanely rich book on the legendary Woodstock Festival in 1969 – one that gets past all the overdone hype about the musicians and performances, and really exposes all the effort that made the whole thing happen! Author Bob Spitz spends a huge amount of time on the pre-show details – over 300 pages about the strange mix of planning, catastrophe, and happy accident that made Woodstock happen – along with all these fascinating side stories about the many characters involved in the production, both public figures and offbeat cats from the counterculture – who seem to make the whole thing pretty darn lively, even before a single artist takes the stage! The last 100 pages or so deal with the event itself – giving a chronological account that goes way past the performances, and which is tied both to the planning, the day by day struggles, and the huge aftermath of the festival. Surprisingly well done – we're really not folks who thought we'd ever be interested in a Woodstock book – and 454 pages, softcover. Book

✨✧ Slaughter JoeZe Do Caixao – The Complete Creation & Kaleidoscope Recordings ... CD
Rev-Ola/Creation (UK), 1980s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The complete recordings of Slaughter Joe Foster – an incredible guitarist whose sound had a huge influence on the mid 80s British pop scene – with a raspy jangle that showed up often in recordings by other bands on Creation Records, particularly Biff Bang Pow and Jesus & Mary Chain! Joe's got props from both Kim Fowley and Alan McGhee, two producers who helped him hone his guitar sound into the tonal noise that shows up on these great recordings – and although he was one of the lesser-remembered acts from the C80 years, his sound is right up there with the best of the Creation scene of the time. The set features 17 tracks in all, including "Positively Something Wild", "I Know You Rider", "Napalm Girl", "If I Die Before I Wake", "The Lonesome Death Of Thurston Moore", and "I'll Follow You Down".

✨✧ Keith JarrettCreation ... CD
ECM (Germany), 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Keith Jarrett in his best old school mode – peforming solo piano improvisations, at a level that takes us back to his groundbreaking Koln Concert album of the 70s! The material here is from a recent Jarrett tour – one of the first in many years in the improvisational mode (and maybe one of the last, given the energy needed to sustain the creative brilliance – and features material from 2014 performances in Tokyo, Rome, and Paris – all shorter selections than some of the freewheeling album-length jams Jarrett's youth, but no less captivating overall! There's an introspective quality to the music that makes a great change – a moody vibe that's similar to the Paris album from the previous decade – and the quality of the performance is superb throughout, and still represents our favorite side of Jarrett's many talents.

Back in the day, we followed each new Creation single with baited breath – and for good reason, too – as they were some of the most exciting, inventive rock singles of the time – and also bridged a span not only between 60s garage and psych, and 80s post-punk – but also helped establish a whole new aesthetic that's gone onto have a huge impact all these many years later.

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

Mind-bending brilliance from the legendary Philip K Dick – a story that revolves around the possible death of a businessman – but which sets loose a whole narrative of shifting realities and unsure temporalities! The story's a classic, with all of Dick's best elements in place – corporate shenanigans that both reflect and trigger anxiety at a personal level – and a sense of reality that is always unstable, but which might also be its own creation of humanity. Grounding Dick's trippy narrative is a firm command of the individual – those characters that always make his books such a great read, and which are his legacy from the crime pulps of the past, to the present writing of authors like Jonathan Lethem or Michael Chabon. 224 pages, softcover.

Jose FelicianoThat The Spirit Needs/Memphis Menu/Compartments ... CD
RCA/BGO (UK), 1971/1973. New Copy 2 CDs ... $18.99
A trio of wonderful albums from Jose Feliciano – all brought together here in a single set! First up is That The Spirit Needs – a sublime one from Jose! The record pushes past the easy Latin pop style of the late 60s, and features Jose working through hip rock tunes – both of his own creation, and by writers like Elton John and Cat Stevens. The real highlight of the album is an incredible reading of "Wild World" – done with a mix of fast guitar, strings, and even a bit of Brazilian-tinged scatting that breaks down in the middle and always makes us stop cold! The rest of the record's almost as good, and titles include "Daytime Dreams", "Mellow Feeling", "Come Down Jesus", "Pay Day", and "Only Once". Memphis Menue is an excellent album from Jose Feliciano – recorded with a lot of Memphis soul influences, as the title indicates, but still with that beautifullly jazzy style that he was using in his earlier LA recordings. Steve Cropper helped produced and arrange with Jose, and the Memphis Horns back up the group on a number of tracks. The real charm, though, is Jose – whose breezy vocals and sweet guitar work is right up there with his best work of the time, a sublime mix of soul, strings, jazz, and Chicano grooves. Titles include "River Song", "Magnolia", "One More Mile", "Never Leave You", "It Doesn't Matter", "Where Is My Woman", and "Movin". Compartments is sparklingly soulful work from Jose Feliciano – a key early 70s effort, and one that shows the growing sensitivity in his music – the move way past simple covers of other people's songs, even though those were pretty great too! Jose's voice has gotten even more compelling in the process, and he's also developing a bit as a songwriter too – most notably on the album's title track, which was co-written with Bill Withers. Steve Cropper helped produce, but the album's way more in Jose's bag than Cropper's – and titles include a great version of "Yes We Can Can", plus "Simple Song", "Compartments", "Sea Cruise", "I'm Leavin", "Things Are Changin", "Peace Of Mind", "Hey Look At The Sun", and "Don't Fail".

Incredible work from the legendary Lee Hazlewood – music and images that blow away his previous generation of creation for MGM, Mercury, and Warner Brothers – served up here in a package that really captures all the genius of Hazlewood during these amazing years! The package features this incredible material on 8LPs and 4CDs, 107 tracks of music on each format – with every single album track, 45 cut, and unreleased masters that Lee Hazlewood recorded for his own LHI imprint (including the full albums Cowboy In Sweden, Cowboy & The Lady, and Requiem For An Almost Lady) – plus all the key tracks from LHI artists like International Submarine Band, Sanford Clark, Honey LTD, Lynn Castle, Hamilton Streetcar, and many others – including 14 unreleased tracks.

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".

✨✧ Kay LarsonWhere The Heart Beats – John Cage, Zen Buddhism, & The Inner Life Of Artists (hardcover) ... Book
Penguin Books, 2012. New Copy ... $4.99 29.95
A huge book that not only looks at the importance of Zen Buddhism in the creative process of the legendary John Cage – but also shows the way that Cage's music and legacy helped spread Buddhist ideals throughout the art world of the late 20th Century! Cage's relationship to Zen was never slavish – in that he wasn't as much the didactic acolyte as pop artists from later years – but the philosophy did direct his creation from a special inner spirit, with a force that was subtle, but extremely powerful – especially as the influence of Cage's music spread over the years. Author Kay Larson really dives in deep to explore this relationship – turning out a whopping 474 pages, and touching on many of Cage's key contemporaries in the process. Book is hardcover, with some black and white images. Book

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

The power of Purple Rain in the 80s has sometimes been dimmed by the passage of years – but author Alan Light brings back the spotlight to Prince's amazing achievement – and documents both the creation of the classic film and accompanying album, and its role not only in rising Price to the top of the pop heap at the time – but also in breaking down some wider boundaries in 80s American culture. Light's spent time at Rolling Stone and Vibe, and from that perspective he really gets at the way that Purple Rain drew in so many folks who'd never think to buy a soul record at all – nor follow an African-American artist, other than Jimi Hendrix. Book is hardcover, 298 pages. Book

Ka-Pow is right – as this collection explodes with a bang, right from the start – a flurry of wonderful west coast sounds from this overlooked Bay Area combo of the 60s! Powder have a vibe that's much more mod 60s London than anything else we can think of in Cali at the time – and these tunes have a short, sharp punch that rivals some of the best early sides by The Who or The Creation – with a similar blend of tunefulness and sharper edges! There's some sinister undercurrents to the music we really love – darker ideas hiding behind the vocals and guitar – and the quality of this material is really stunning, and makes us wonder why Powder never got wider exposure at the time – as they might have blown away a whole generation of hippies in the process. The CD features 26 tracks in all – 16 by Powder, and others by related acts Ray Columbus & The Art Collection. Titles include "Ruby Red Lips", "Grimbly Leitch", "What The People Said", "Gladly", "Turn Another Page", "Kick Me", "Snap Crackle & Pop", "Millicent", "I Go To School", "Rodeo", "Hate To See Her Go", and "Let's Look At The Moon".

This record was the first of Tosh's released by Keith Richards and Mick Jagger on their Rolling Stones label and they guest on a couple of tracks. Despite their presence, the album is a fairly solid roots effort, if a bit uneven, though not quite as radical or grooving as Equal Rights or Legalize It. Tracks include "Pick Myself Up", "Soon Come", "Moses- The Prophets", "Stand Firm", "Dem Ha Fe Get A Beaten", and "Creation". LP, Vinyl record album

Craig Yoe/Joe SchusterSecret Identity – The Fetish Art Of Superman's Co-Creator Joe Schuster (hardcover) ... Book
Abrams, 2008. New Copy ... $5.99 24.95
Amazing images from the co-creator of Superman – rare pen and ink drawings done for a seedy bondage publication in the mid 50s – years after Joe Schuster had stopped working on his famous hero! As is well-known, Schuster fell on financial hard times pretty quickly after DC Comics ran away with his creation – and this work is from a time when Joe was doing material for a shady printer in the early 50s. Comic historian/artist Craig Yoe does a wonderful job of reviving Schuster's work for the publication Nights Of Horror – telling his tale, that of the magazine, and the larger 50s context of printed images and teenage violence. The images here are stunning – and pretty adult stuff (sorry, kids!) – not really pornographic, but extremely provocative in the way they position the bodies of women in these odd, revelatory situations – often on the cusp of some violent conclusion. Most of the book is in black and white, and the whole thing is hardcover bound, with some color bits, and 160 pages. Book

VariousAtonement – Compiled & Mixed By Osunlade ... CD
R2 (UK), 2014. New Copy Gatefold ... $12.99
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.

VariousBest Of The Subway Organization 1986 to 1989 ... CD
Subway/Cherry Red (UK), Late 80s. New Copy ... $3.99
An assortment of tracks from the legendary Subway Organization – a key force in the second wave of British pop in the 1980s! Like Creation Records, another important contemporary label at the time, Subway had a hand in taking the fragile pop sounds that emerged in the post-punk years on labels like Postcard, Cherry Red, and Disques Du Crepuscule – and giving them an added sense of strength to move more strongly into the mainstream. The Subway sound often had the guitars pushed quite upfront in the mix – slightly fuzzed out in an 80s take on psychedelia – not in the paisley underground way of the US scene, but in the Jesus & Mary Chain fuzzed-up style of the UK. A few of Subway's acts went onto relatively big fame at the time, but this 20 track collection provides a great overview of the label at their early best – with a clean, clear simple guitar-based vision that really comes through strongly in the selection of tunes. Titles include "Whole Wide World" and "I Know Everything" by The Soup Dragons, "Are You Happy Now" and "Cold" by The Charlottes, "Do It Again" by Korova Milk Bar, "Sorry To Embarrass You" and "Big Pink Cake" by The Razorcuts, "I Could Be In Heaven" and "Shimmer" by The Flatmates, "The Big Black Plastic Explosion" by The Groove Farm, and "Completely & Utterly" by The Chesterfields.

VariousStudio One Roots ... LP
Soul Jazz/Studio One (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2LP ... $26.99
An excellent dip into the rootsier material from the Studio One catalog – the kind of reggae classics that have forever made the label one of the best Jamaican companies! The package is every bit as sublime as Soul Jazz's other reggae compilations – and it features a selection of tunes that far outshines most other reissues of Studio One material, and which includes some great rare gems that have a heavy soulful feeling. Titles include "Meditation" by The Cyclones with Count Ossie, "Set Me Free" by L Crosdale, "More Creation" by Lennie Hibbert, "Fear Not" by Winston Jarrett, "Blackish White" by Alton Ellis, "Far Beyond" by Leroy Wallace, "Addis A Baba" by Willie Williams, "Lumumbo" by Bunny & Skitter, "Africa Here I Come" by Freddie McGregor, and "Congo Rock" by Sound Dimension.

Fabio FrizziFrizzi 2 Fulci – Live At Union Chapel ... LP
Death Waltz (UK), 2014. New Copy ... About November 15, 2015 (delayed)
A cool re-creation of the best soundtrack modes of Fabio Frizzi – particularly his scores for the films of Lucio Fulci! The performance is a live one, but done with a very classic vibe – played by a small combo that mixes keyboards, guitar, and rhythms with some light strings to really capture the creepy vibe of Frizzi's best soundtrack material – served up here in a mix of instrumental tracks that occasionally feature vocals – with music from the films Manhattan Bby, Zombi 2, Paura Nella Citta Dei Morti Viventi, Beware Of Darkness, and more!

Narassa (Sandro Brugnolini)Viaggio Pop 1 & 2 ... LP
Cinedelic (Italy), 1974. New Copy ... About December 1, 2015
Hardly the pop you might expect from the title – and instead, a batch of tripped-out instrumentals that definitely lives up to the eye-bending image on the cover! The music here was all presented by Narassa on the original 70s sound library release of the two records – but time has shown that the project came from the hands of Sandro Brugnoli, with a very similar flair to excellent material that came out under his own name at the time! Nothing is excluded in the creation of the set – as instrumentation runs the gamut from groovy Hammond, guitar, and flute – to more offbeat string tunings, earthy percussion, and weird sound effects – all with a production style that really abstracts things even more, while still preserving a funky current at the bottom of most tracks. The approach is tremendous – and makes for two sound library albums that really move past the obvious European modes of the period. Titles include "Macero", "Rotativa", "Bodoni", "Calamaio", "Torchio", "Rullo Compressore", "Ruspa", "Cantiere", "Bttipalo", "Benna", "Trivella", "Accavallatrice", and "Asta Di Distribuzione".

✨✧ ActionAction Packed (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Demon (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Mod madness from The Action – one of the lesser-known 60s groups on the London scene, at least on this side of the Atlantic – but one that we'd rank right up there with early Who or The Creation at their best! The Action have a soulful undercurrent that comes through both in the vocals, and their choice of American soul cuts to mix in with their own great originals – and the tracks here show a really deft ability to move between sharper mod moments and deeper soulful currents – a style that was clearly echoed by The Jam in their final years. Titles include "I Love You", "Hey Sah Lo Ney", "The Place", "Baby You've Got It", "Twentyfourth Hour", "Something Has Hit Me", "Harlem Shuffle", and "Shadows & Reflections". LP, Vinyl record album

Cool CreationsWish Upon Love/Nightime On The Beach Island ... 7-inch
Athens Of The North (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99
The Cool Creations are definitely a group who live up to their name – working here on "Wish Upon Love" with this groove that's complicated, yet completely seductive too! The rhythms change in this nicely sophisticated way, and set things up with a nice edge – which then gets warmed up by the beautiful vocals of the tune! The flipside is pretty great, too – begins with the sound of ocean waves, then moves into this excellent slow-stepping groove that blends sweet trumpet with a watery guitar line – and even some cool moogy moments as the instrumental moves on! 7-inch, Vinyl record

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".

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
Caprice (Sweden), 2014. Used ... $4.99
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

Soul Patrol (France), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $16.99
The title's a reference to a Funkadelic song, but the set's a much deeper batch of grooves – really rare tracks from the funky 45 underground of the late 60s and early 70s – pulled together in one massively groovy piece of wax! There's a lot of hip twists and turns in the music – not just the usual funky offshoots of James Brown and Stax, but some plenty creative instrumentation that brings in some jazzy flourishes, unusual time changes, and raw production styles to really make the music sparkle! Titles include "I Don't Know Nothing Else To Tell You But I Love You" by Monica, "Trolly" by New Directions, "Introduction" by the Concepts, "And I Love You" by Darling Dears, "JB's Latin" by Spitting Image, "Blues For The Bs" by TJ & The Group, "Foxy" by Sam Jacobs, and "Nighttime On The Beach Island" by Cool Creations Of St Maarten.

Be! (Germany), Mid 50s. New Copy 5 x 10 inch LP, 6 x (reissue)... $286.99 358.98
Incredible, simply incredible – way more than just a collection of jazz, and instead a huge document of the postwar scene in Germany during the 50s! The package is a stunning recreation of the Mod Records label – an early project of Gigi Campi, who'd gain greater fame in the 60s for his direction of the Clarke Boland Big Band, and other key jazz projects. The work here is much sharper, and often more modern than Campi projects in later years – very much a precursor to the MPS/Saba modes to come – modern jazz at its best, played by both German and American artists, and originally issued on just 10" and 7" albums at the time! The vinyl component of the set reproduces every single Mod Records release – with great vinyl and heavy covers – including albums by guitarist Attila Zoller, vibist Bill Grah, pianist Roland Kovac, pianist Jutta Hipp, drummer Rudi Sehring, tenorist Hans Koller, altoist Lee Konitz, trombonist Albert Mangelsdorff, and others – presented here in true replicas of five 10" LPs and six 7" EPS – all with original sleeves. The 4CDs offer up the music in digital format – and the huge book is heavy, hardcover, and 12" x 12" – and includes loads of images, notes on the sessions, vintage reviews, and more – and the whole thing even comes with a vintage Mod Records poster too. Stunning stuff – we've never seen another jazz box like it – and a treasure for both the vinyl collector and CD listener! LP, Vinyl record album

Black Saint (Italy), 1980s/1990s. New Copy 7CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Pianist Ran Blake first came into prominence in the 60s – as one of the most striking, most inventive modern players of his generation – but unfortunately, his time on record wasn't always as great as his talents – until the Black Saint/Soul Note label corrected that with this great run of records from the 80s and 90s! This box brings together all of Blake's work for the label – a total of seven albums, each presented here in their original album cover art, as tiny record sleeves in a larger box that includes the albums Improvisations, Duke Dreams, Suffield Gothic, Shoft Life Of Barbara Monk, Epistrophy, Umarked Van, and Indian Winter. Duke Dreams and Epistrophy are solo albums – with Blake extrapolating on ideas from Ellington and Monk, respectively. Improvisations features beautiful spontaneous creations with pianist Jaki Byard – and Suffield Gothic is another striking duet album, with especially creative work from tenorist Houston Person. Short Life Of Barbara Monk features a quartet with Ricky Ford on tenor – and the set's completed by two more duet albums – Unmarked Van with Tiziano Tononi, and Indian Winter with David Knife Fabris.

Gemelli/Roundtable (Australia), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Really organic rhythms from groundbreaking sound library artist Egisto Macchi – served up here on a record that never saw commercial release at the time, but which may well be as mindblowing as contemporary work by Harry Partch or George Crumb! Like both of those serious composers, Macchi has a way of making familiar instruments sound very unusual – and adding in his own creations as well – so that the sonic complexity of the record is further underscored by the abstraction of the core elements! And yet there's also a rhythmic pattern to most numbers – like Partch at his best – so that things are never too obtuse, as they've got a subtle groove and pattern that holds together the more outside elements – a bit like the music of Moondog, but trippier. Titles include "Batteri", "Automaticita", "Microscopia", "Valvole Cardiache", and "Peristalsi". LP, Vinyl record album

One of the coolest, grooviest soundtracks we've ever heard from Riz Ortolani – an artist who did bigger, more mainstream film scores in the 60s – but who really developed a more electric vibe in the 70s! This soundtrack has Riz working at the top of his powers – bringing in keyboards and guitars to really spice things up, and make for a few key funky moments – but also still handling some larger charts with the professional flair he always brought to his music – showing that the best horror work of this time still came from composers who had deeper skills than just a few slick keyboard lines. Titles include "Love With Fun", "Massacre Of The Troupe", "Cameraman's Recreation", "Adulteress' Punishment", "Savage Rite", and "Drinking Coco". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Mike CooperPlaces I Know/The Machine Gun Co (with download) ... LP
Dawn/Paradise Of Bachelors, 1971/1972. New Copy 2LP 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". LP, Vinyl record album
