Bulbous CreationYou Won't Remember Dying (with bonus download) ... LP
Numero, 1969. New Copy ... $16.99 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

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".

Garage psych genius with a touch of mystical mood craft from Druids Of Stonehenge – raw drums, guitars and rhythms with some spooky organ and keys a nice backdrop from howling vocals and forboding tunes! 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!

✨✧ Burning SpearCreation Rebel ... CD
Heartbeat/Studio One, 1960s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
If you're like us, you've probably been frustrated over the years at trying to find nicely remastered copies of many Studio One classics, which have been kicking around in one form or another for years and years, often seemingly out of print or available only on poor quality pressings. So we barely need to mention how satisfying it is that Heartbeat has issued this sweet and long awaited set of seminal Studio One sides from Burning Spear. These early recordings stand out as some of the finest primal work from Winston Rodney, soulful seeds of the heavy roots rock he'd later become known for, wrapped up in a nicely annotated package with numerous hard-to-get mixes, many of which were previously unreleased on CD! 20 tracks in all, including "Foggy Road", "Rocking Time (rare stereo mix)", "Down By The River", "New Civilization (rare stereo mix)", "Door Peeper (original single mix)", "This Race (rare stereo mix)", "This Population", "Bad To Worst (rare stereo mix)", "Pick Up The Pieces", "Zion Higher (rare stereo mix)", "Swell Headed", "Creation Rebel", "Ethiopians Live It Out", "Get Ready", "Weeping And Waiting (rare stereo mix)" and loads more!

✨✧ 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".

✨✧ Raul DeSouzaSoul & Creation ... CD
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

✨✧ Bob SpitzBarefoot In Babylon – The Creation Of The Woodstock Music Festival 1969 ... Book
Plume, 1979/2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

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

About Time includes the group's Decca singles, rare radio sessions, and previously unreleased records – some with a slight bluesy guitar tinge, but nearly all of them heavy and driving – way ahead of their time! Tracks include "Any More Than I Do", "Feel Like Flying", "Created by Clive", "Try It", "Go Your Way", "Strange House", "Freedom For You", "Hi Ho Silver Lining", "Magic In The Air (aka Watch With Mother)", and "We Don't Know".

Phil Cohran & The Artistic Heritage EnsembleArmageddon (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Katalyst, 1968. New Copy Gatefold ... $9.99 11.99
A rare and beautiful treasure from Chicago's Phil Cohran and his legendary Artistic Heritage Ensemble – material recorded at the end of the 60s, but only issued here for the first time ever! The sound on the record is amazing – much deeper, and more forceful than anything else we've ever heard from Cohran – almost in Sun Ra Arkestra territory at times, given the group's out-there playing, and bold collective action! The lineup is similar to other Cohran recordings from the time – Phil on cornet, Henry Gibson on congas, Pete Cosey on guitar, Louis Satterfield on bass, Charles Williams on alto, Don Myrick on tenor, Charles Handy on trumpet, Willie Woods on trombone, and Aaron Dodd on tuba – a group that's a wonderful bridge between the two important Chicago generations headed by Sun Ra and Earth Wind & Fire. Armageddon is an extended piece, divided up into five different musical acts – conceived by Cohran in the late 50s, and recorded here in 1968 – with some great help from The Spencer Jackson Family on the leadoff track "Motherless Child". Other titles include "Creation Of The Beast", "The Warning", "The Window", and "Armageddon" – a clear reference to the power of the atom bomb! CD

Crazy World Of Arthur BrownCrazy World Of Arthur Brown ... LP
Track, 1968. Very Good+ ... $16.99
A wild, far reaching psychedelic rock kaleidoscope from Arthur Brown and his Crazy World! The sounds range from wailing organs and heavy drum backed bigness, to more of a tightly grooving r&b garage influenced trip as the core backdrop – with vocals ranging from falsetto freakouts to rambling speak singing craziness and bursts of brass. Nothing's predictable from one passage to the next, but the group sets a heady groove before it all gets freaky, and they find it again before insanity sets in. Titles include "Prelude-Nightmare", "Fire", "Come & Buy", "Spontaneous Apple Creation", "Child Of My Kingdom", "I Put A Spell On You" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Philip K DickUbik ... Book
Gollancz (UK), 1969. New Copy ... $5.99 12.99
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.

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 Baby, Zombi 2, Paura Nella Citta Dei Morti Viventi, Beware Of Darkness, and more! Titles include "Bunny Love Song", "Silver Saddle", "Baby Sequence" (numbers 1-4), "Zombi 2", "Wast It All In Vain", "Rusth Games", "Luca Il Contrabbandiere", "Voci Dal Nulla" and more.

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. Then, you also get this incredible 172 page hardcover book – as big as a giant LP box, with rare photos, liner notes, history, Lee Hazelwood timeline, and lots lots more. Then, you get the totally great film Cowboy In Sweden on a DVD – a rare 1970, hour-long film done by Lee in Sweden.

Isley BrothersIt's Our Thing ... LP
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".

Three more tracks – "Movement Equals Creation", "Intensity", and "Altoviolin" – feature Lake on alto, playing with a violin trio that sounds very dark and moody. "Rocket" is a trio piece, with Joseph Bowie and Charles Bobo Shaw – and "Lonely Blacks" is a somber solo sax piece. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ 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

Alan LightLet's Go Crazy – Prince & The Making Of Purple Rain (hardcover) ... Book
Atria, 2014. New Copy ... $6.99 26.00
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

Narassa (Sandro Brugnolini)Viaggio Pop 1 & 2 ... LP
Cinedelic (Italy), 1974. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $39.99
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".

Mike NockPiano Solos ... CD
Timeless/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
Beautiful solo work from pianist Mike Nock – a set that's got some of the dark edges and dynamic energy of Nock's previous 70s recordings – but an album that also shows some newly lyrical elements as well! Some passages have Mike hitting the keys with the sort of frenzied creation he reached on fusion recordings – but with wonderful results on the acoustic piano – and other moments have this enhanced sense of melody that makes for very beautiful, expressive passages – maybe a touch more sentiment than the younger Nock would have allowed himself, but never in a way that's soppy or overdone. The balance in these modes is great – and reminds us that Nock can be equally compelling a solo performer as he is in a group – on titles that include "Enchanted Garden", "Polyhedron", "Fallen Angel", "California Country Song", "Soliloquy", and "Jacanori".

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.

Given that Greg's handling a lot of the work himself, the album's got a feel that's almost in an early 80s Stevie Wonder mode – with some well written songs that would work well in a more intimate setting, and which stay very true to their spirit, as the composer's handling their creation all the way through. Includes a great version of "Girl Talk", plus "Big Man", "Forever Now", "Baby I Do Love You", "I Don't Want To Be The One", and "The Call". CD

Unlike some of his LPs from the time - which often featured a lot of set routines – this one just has Lenny improvising freely, telling jokes, doing schtick, and bad-rapping on a variety of topics from pills, to homosexuality, to airlines, to the KKK, to VD, to other contemporary comedians. The album's one of the few to really capture Bruce's brilliance as a performer and a thinker – and the spontaneity of the very long recording is astounding. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ LatinairesCamel Walk ... LP
Fania, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Mickey FinnGarden Of My Mind – The Complete Recordings 1964 to 1967 ... CD
RPM (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A hell of a group from the British mod scene of the mid 60s – one who should have been huge, given the strength of these recordings! The Mickey Finn definitely have an undercurrent of blues to their music – but less of the slavish use of the influences as Manfred Mann or the Stones, and maybe more of a merging of gritty roots with burning London energy – as you'd find in searing sounds on early records from The Who! Some cuts have a bit of harmonica, while others have loads of great fuzzy guitar – and as the cuts go on, there's also a current of soul music as well – but still definitely turned here towards much more mod territory in the end. The cuts are brilliant – really that best side of London at the time – like Action or The Creation – and titles include "Garden Of My Mind", "Pills", "I Still Want You", "The Sporting Life", "Time To Start Loving You", "Poverty", "Tom Hark", and "Please Love Me". CD also features a number of never-issued tracks, too! CD

✨✧ Craig Yoe/Joe SchusterSecret Identity – The Fetish Art Of Superman's Co-Creator Joe Schuster (hardcover) ... Book
Abrams, 2008. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

Shawn LeeGolden Age Against The Machine ... CD
BBE (UK), 2014. Used ... $2.99
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".

Egisto MacchiBioritmi (200 gram pressing) ... LP
Gemelli/Roundtable (Australia), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
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

1910 Fruitgum CoHard Ride ... LP
Buddah, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $16.99
A great mix of bubblegum pop and headier numbers – one of the key albums by the Kasenetz/Katz team at Buddah, but done in a way that shows a real shift at the label! The 1910 Fruitgum Co still manage to turn out some of the shorter, catchier tunes that were putting Buddah at the front of the pop game at the time – but the album also features some longer, more expansive tunes that jam a bit more – and which actually seem to a more unified, less studio-directed side of the band. Heady titles include "Seulb", "Collections Of Thoughts", and "Togetherly Alone (5 Movements)" – and poppier ones include "Creations Of Simon", "All These Things", and "The Train".

Elissa WardSecret Lives Of Married Women ... Book
Hard Case Crime, 2013. New Copy ... $0.99 9.95
Two twin sisters, each with secrets of their own – crossing paths in this psycho-sexual thriller that definitely lives up to the promise of its title! The author gets great praise on the back from Junot Diaz – and certainly delivers in this original story done for the Hard Case Crime series – with all the right vintage paperback tones that you'd expect from the presentation! There's a bit more of an erotic thrill to the book than some of the others in the series – but that's also what makes it a standout amongst some of their more contemporary creations. 218 pages, softcover.

VariousMod Records Cologne – Gigi Campi Jazz in West Germany 1954 to 1956 (5 x 10 inch LP, 6 x 7 inch, 4CD, & hardcover book) ... LP
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

✨✧ VariousGroovallegience – 10 Super Rare Original Funky Tracks From The Late 60s To The Early 70s ... LP
Soul Patrol (France), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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.

Black Saint (Italy), 1980s/1990s. New Copy 7CD ... 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.

Athens Of The North (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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
