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".

Druids Of StonehengeCreation (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Sundazed, 1968. New Copy ... $23.99 24.98
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

Oliver LakeNTU – Point From Which Creation Begins ... LP
Passin' Thru/Arista, 1971. Near Mint- ... $24.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Leon's CreationThis Is The Beginning ... LP
Studio 10, Early 70s. Good+ ... $34.99
Early grooves from Leon Pattillo – later a club maestro, but working here in a much rootsier style at the head of Leon's Creation – an ultra-cool funk combo from San Francisco! The album's got a groove that really lives up to the promise of its title – a heady brew of funky tracks played by a tight young group – often with vocals in the lead from Leon and a female singer, but sometimes featuring other group members – adding a nice sense of variety while the players riff away with boundless energy! Pattillo plays some great organ at times – and other instrumentation includes guitar, bass, trumpet, tenor, and even some cool violin – and titles include "Confusion", "If I Had The Power", "Sightless", "Back Roads", "This Is The Beginning", and "Mirage".

Yoga Records/Drag City, 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $18.99 20.98
Cosmic weirdness from Lightstorm – the first ever compilation of the husband & wife duo Johnima and Kalassu Wintergate's oddly effective, genuinely-inviting tunes! Lightstorm's aim is to bring blessing, love and divine joy to the world – spiritually-inclined in a new age-y way that's odd, but not off putting – kinda cute, and more endearing than you'd expect. Add some late 70s synthy backdrops and you got a real esoteric gem! Includes "Creation", "Walking Into The Sun", "Let Your Astral Body Fly", "ATMA", "O' My Love", "How Do I Love You", "Monkey Bridge", "Missionary Is Impossible" and "Spend All Your Love".

Alan McGeeCreation Stories – Riots, Raves & Running A Label (hardcover) ... Book
Macmillan (UK), 2013. New Copy ... $8.99 19.99
Alan McGee is one of the most compelling figures in the British indie scene of the 80s – as important to psych and Britpop styles as Tony Wilson was to the rise of Factory Records and The Hacienda! And like Wilson, McGee was always inextricably tied to the artists he worked with – a heady lineup that includes Jesus & Mary Chain, Oasis, My Bloody Valentine, and Primal Scream – all of whom figure in here, alongside the important names that halped make Alan's Creation Records one of the best British record labels of the 80s. The book's told from McGee's own perspective – and is as slanted as you might expect, although not without some sense of apology here and there – and this hardcover edition is 325 pages, with some black and white images.

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

Mushroom/Warner (Australia), 1990/1993/1997/2002. Used 4 CDs ... Just Sold Out!
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!

Jefferson Airplane flying high in the late 60s – both a creative and commercial triumph for the band – balancing the tripped out adventurousness of their earlier work, with a more focused approach that brought them to bigger and bigger audiences! 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

✨✧ 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".

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

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

Death Waltz (UK), 2014. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $34.99 36.98
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 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.

The record was produced by Al himself, and while it's got some weak 80s production touches, there are a few nice tracks that actually sound pretty good as soul tracks. Titles include "I Just Can't Make It By Myself", "Leaning On The Everlasting Arms", "I Close My Eyes and Smile", "Ocean Blue", and "Straighten Out Your Life". LP, Vinyl record album

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".

Great early work from Lake – playing here in a number of different settings, but always with well-matched collaborators! 3 tracks on the set – "Owshet", "Heavy Spirits", and "While Pushing Down Turn" – featuring Lake with Olu Dara on trumpet, Donald Smith on piano, Victor Lewis on drums, and Stafford James on bass, playing in sort of a freebop mode. 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

Fania, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
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 ... $14.99
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

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".

Pressure Sounds (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98
Booming dubs from Lee Perry and his Upsetters – masters and dub plates from the Black Ark archives – prime unreleased material put together by Pressure Sounds! Roaring Lion has 16 tracks, 11 of which are from one mastertape full of top shelf dubs, and the other 5 are heretofore unreleased alternate mixes and dub plates of prime period material. 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 "Gerneration 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.

PrisonersThewisermiserdemelza (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Big Beat (UK), 1983. New Copy ... $14.99
Wonderful sounds from The Prisoners – an ultra-hip UK combo from the early 80s, and one who never fully got their due – although their keyboardist James Taylor later rose to great fame in the funk, soul, and acid jazz scenes! The Prisoners are a bit of a mod revival group, but have also gotten a lot more psych-oriented by this time in their career – at a level that really prefaces work to come from the Creation Records scene – and which makes us wonder if The Prisoners would have rose with the fame of those groups, had they held on a few years longer! Taylor's organ lines tie together the raspy vocals, tight drums, and riffing guitars – which almost have a Jam-like tightness at times, but are looser and more trippy at others. Titles include "Go Go", "Hurricane", "Tonight", "Love Me Lies", "Far Away", "For Now & Forever", and "Here Come The Misunderstood". CD features 11 more bonus tracks added to the original album – including "Coming Home", "The Last Thing On Your Mind", "Reaching My Head", "Tomorrow", "Love Changes", "Revenge Of The Cybermen", and "What I Want".

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.

PK/Half Moon (UK), 1970s/1980s. New Copy 2 LPs ... $25.99
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".

VariousStill In A Dream – A Story Of Shoegaze 1988 to 1995 (5CD set) ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), Late 80s/Early 90s. New Copy 5 CDs ... $42.99
Psychedelia meets British pop – in a really special musical moment that's forever come to be known as shoegaze! The work here comes from a time when the UK scene was really moving past punk rock, and starting to let its guitarists open up in the kind of longer, fuzzy solos that were big in the late 60s – along with all the sort of heady production modes that made such music sound even better, but always with the kind of leaner, more focused lessons learned from the post-punk years! The result is a special sort of sound that can trip out as needed, but never get too overindulgent to lose the tune – the balance that first came to play on the early singles of Creation or 4AD, then found flower in so many other UK groups as the years went on. These glorious years are presented here in a big 5CD set – one that comes in a book-styled package with loads of notes on the music – alongside 87 tracks by artists who include Blow Up, The Honey Buzzards, Submarine, Bailter Space, The Curtain Society, Mercury Rev, An April March, Spacemen 3, The Hinnies, Spiritualized, Moose, Spitfire, Moonshake, Bark Psychosis, AR Kane, Jesus & Mary Chain, Lush, Ride, The Darkside, Velocity Girl, Bleach, Catehrine Wheel, See See Rider, Cranes, Chapterhouse, Telescopes, Sun Dial, Medicine, Sweet Jesus, Luna, Astrobrite, and many more!

Buried Treasure (France), 2015. New Copy ... About April 22, 2016 (delayed)
There's a date range listed on the cover that stretches back to the 70s – not the actual age of the music on this set, but instead a way of indicating the decades worth of inspiration drawn upon by The Dandelion Set – especially the cooler post-psych elements of the UK scene in the 70s, and some of the trippier psych revival sounds of the following decade! These guys might have been right at home on Bam Caruso or early Creation Records – and share a similar love of the weirder, offbeat qualities of the late 60s – blending fuzzy performance with equally freaky production – using light touches of funk or analogue electronics along the way. Tracks on the record work together to create a very vivid audio scene – one that's echoed by the equally trippy liner notes by Alan Moore – and titles include "Harps Ascend", "Cosmic Flux History", "Tone Garden", "Pristina Strawberry Girl", "Redherringbone", "A Rasher Of Wind", "Gardense", and "The Third Programme".

StoogesHave Some Fun – Live At Ungano's ... CD
Rhino Handmade/Wounded Bird, 1970. New Copy ... About May 1, 2016
Raw, incendiary live material from The Stooges, circa 1970 – recorded at NYC dive bar Ungano's, right around the time that Fun House was released! They blast through nearly all the tracks from Fun House here, minus "LA Blues", and with the rare "Have Some Fun/My Dream Is Dead", which as far as we know, was never released before Rhino Handmade dug up this incredible recording. The source was a reel-to-reel capture by someone in the audience, so the sound is a bit rough – which is of little concern when what we have here is a really important building block in creation of punk rock!

✨✧ MoveMove (3CD deluxe edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Deram/Esoteric (UK), 1968. New Copy 3 CDs ... Just Sold Out!
A hell of a stunner from The Move – the group's first full album, and a set that burns beautifully on so many different levels! The set's almost equal parts mod and psych – with all the sharpness of the former, and lots of the fuzz and inventive production of the latter – served up here at a level that few others could touch at the time – maybe The Who or The Creation at their best – both key contemporaries of The Move, although the group owe nothing to them at all, and stand strongly, brilliantly here on their own! The whole record is incredible – filled with excellent songs by Roy Wood, who also plays superb guitar throughout – with lead vocals from Carl Wayne, incredible production from Denny Cordell, and even some excellent arrangements from the young Tony Visconti. Every song is a gem – and titles include "Here We Go Round The Lemon Tree", "Yellow Rainbow", "Kilroy Was Here", "The Girl Outside", "Fire Brigade", "Cherry Blossom Clinic", "Mist On A Monday Morning", and "Useless Information". Plus, this 3CD version has a stunning amount of extra material – 52 bonus tracks that include "Vote For Me", "I Can Hear The Grass Grow", "Don't Hang Up", "Night Of Fear", "Disturbance", "You're The One I Need", "Winter Song", "The Fugitive", "Respectable", "Too Many Fish In The Sea", and "I Can't Hear You No More" – plus rare stereo mixes (the core album is in mono), and 19 more BBC sessions from 1967 and 1968 – performances on Top Gear, Easybeat, and Saturday Club.

✨✧ Greg PhillinganesSignificant Gains ... CD
Planet/Sony (Japan), 1981. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A great little set of 80s soul from Greg Phillinganes – one of those 80s wunderkind soul talents who could do everything, from write and produce, to play keyboards and sing on the album. 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

✨✧ Crazy World Of Arthur BrownCrazy World Of Arthur Brown ... LP
Track, 1968. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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
(Black label Track pressing.)

FunkadelicConnections & Disconnections ... LP
Far Out/LA Records, 1981. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Was Clinton in jail when this one came out? We can't remember, but the back cover does say specifically "This album does not include any performances or creations by George Clinton." The band does include Fuzzy Haskins, Grady Thomas, Ken Blackmon, Calvin Simon, and others – and the sound is not bad early 80s slap-bass funk, with lots of nice electronified moments. Titles include "Phunklords", "The Witch", "Connections & Disconnections", "Call The Doctor", and "Who's A Funkadelic". LP, Vinyl record album

Hollywood Saxophone QuartetJazz In Hollywood ... LP
Liberty, Late 50s. Very Good- ... $18.99
Long before the advent of groups like Rova or the World Sax Quartet, the idea of a 4-horn group meant a recreation (or approximation) of Woody Herman's famous "4 Brothers" style. In this case, the west coast group features a stranger take on the style – in that it includes alto, soprano, tenor, and baritone saxes – yet still retains the basic tight ensemble reed style. Players include Russ Cheever, Jack Dumont, Morrie Crawford, and Bill Ulyate – and they are backed by bass and drums, but no piano. Kind of in a Mulliganish vein, with arrangements by Marty Paich, Lennie Niehaus, Jack Montrose, and Russ Garcia. Titles include "Nightcap", "New York City Ghost", "Mixed Commotions", "Make The Most of It", and "Ghost Of A Chance". LP, Vinyl record album

Rocket RobertRocket Robert (180 gram pressing – with bonus tracks) ... LP
Future/Got Kinda Lost (Spain), 1982. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
Sweet spacey sounds from the American underground of the early 80s – a record with more than enough electronic touches to live up to its title – and a surprisingly deep sound that's way more than you'd expect from the cartoony cover! Rocket Robert is just one guy – Robert Moore – who serves up a heady brew of Oberheim keyboard lines with a style that's clearly inspired by some of the best analogue electronic records of the 70s, especially those from the German scene – with a feel that's a lot warmer and more personal than some of the cold wave albums that were starting to show up in the US and UK. Most of the album is instrumental, with layered, flowing lines that are inherently rhythmic as they build ladders of sound up to the skies – on titles that include "Bottomless Pit Of Space", "Star Flight", "Walking In Space", "Journey Into The Unknown", "Docking In Space", and "Creations Beginning". Also includes the bonus tracks "I've Got My Helmet On" and "Living In This Station". LP, Vinyl record album

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

✨✧ Shawn LeeGolden Age Against The Machine ... CD
BBE (UK), 2014. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

Columbia, 1970. Used ... 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".

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".

✨✧ Archie GoodwinTales Of The Batman (hardcover) ... Book
DC Comics, 2013. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the best writers to ever take on Batman – the mighty Archie Goodwin – known for his initial 60s work at Warren Publications on Creepy and Eerie, his important contributions to Marvel Comics, and his influential work at DC as both writer and editor! The book captures Goodwin at two key moments – his initial DC work with Batman, not just on great stories drawn by Jim Aparo and Alex Toth – but also the whole run of The Manhunter – one of the coolest 70s creations at DC, drawn beautifully by a young Walt Simonson. The second half of the book showcases Goodwin's return to DC in the 90s – and lays out some multi-part stories, with art by Gene Ha, Marshall Rogers, and Scott Hampton – definitely the cut above the usual comics on the Dark Knight. Book is a heavy 472 pages, full color, and very nicely done! Book

✨✧ Egisto MacchiBioritmi (200 gram pressing) ... LP
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

✨✧ 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 ... 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.
