✨✧ CreationCreation ... LP
Atco, 1974. Very Good+ ... $8.99
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".

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

Keith JarrettCreation ... CD
ECM (Germany), 2015. New Copy ... $16.99 18.98
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.

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

✨✧ CreationOur Music Is Red With Purple Flashes (180 gram pressing) ... CD
Demon (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... About October 2, 2015
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".

Not the greatest album by this East Coast funk band – and one that shows them hitting a bit more of a crossover club sound, with lots of up-tempo funk tracks that kind of aim for a disco groove. Fortunately, the instrumentation's pretty good – and the album actually has some nice mellow grooves with a decent enough jazzy feel. Titles include "Dancin Singin", "We Love To Party", "Brother To Brother", "Vibrations", and "I'm Gonna Take Your Love". LP, Vinyl record album

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

A very nice album that features sort of a "best of" sampling of Alice's solo recordings for Impulse in the immediate 5-year period after John Coltrane's death. The tracks are a lovely mix of smaller groups and larger spiritual ensembles – and players include Jimmy Garrison, Pharoah Sanders, Joe Henderson, Ron Carter, and Cecil McBee. There's a lot of nice tracks on here that don't show up that often on vinyl – and titles include "Blue Nile", "I Want To See You", "Sita Ram", "Oh Allah", "Andromeda's Suffering", "Lovely Sky Boat", and "Galaxy In Turiya".

Pao (Austria), 2007. New Copy ... Temporarily 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

Titles include "Harlem", "African Diamond", "Vibrations", "Singing Sisters", "Do You Wanna", and "Paroles Paroles". CD

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

Demon (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $26.99
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

Lenny BruceCarnegie Hall – February 4, 1961 ... LP
United Artists, 1961/1972. Sealed 3LP Gatefold ... $14.99
Some of the greatest work you could ever find by Lenny Bruce! This set is a brilliant re-creation of a live show that Lenny cut at midnight at Carnegie Hall on February 4, 1961. 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

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".

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

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

Big Beat (UK), 1967/1968. New Copy ... $11.99
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".

An incredible set of low rolling, hypnotic dub genius from true reggae Revolutionaries – a batch of amazing tunes centered around the amazing drums of Sly Dunbar – cut in the mid-to-late 70s height of the Channel One groove!

Amazing stuff mined from singles on the Channel One, Well Charge and Disco Mix labels.

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", plus 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!

And even without the film, the album still really stands strongly on its own – a great maturation moment for Tangerine Dream, but one that still has all the edge and darkness of their best early recordings too. Titles include "Rain Forest", "The Call", "Creation", "Vengeance", "Search", and "Grind". LP, Vinyl record album

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.

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.

✨✧ VariousSupafunkanova Vol 1 – Badass Funk Classics From The Disco Boogie Era Compiled By DJs Joey Negro & Sean P ... CD
Z Records (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
An incredible double dose of boogie funk and clubby grooves – selected by Joey Negro and Sean P, and filled with heavy basslines, funky drums, squelching synths, and floor-shaking rare groovers from the late 70s and early 80s! Joey Negro and Sean P are master compilers of rare funk & soul – and Supafunkanova is right up there with their best work – easily at the same level as Joey's other compilations and his own work as Sunburst Band – and definitely living up to Sean's decades-long reputation as one of the best crate diggers in the world. Totally incredible stuff from those magic years – when the sophisticated sheen of the disco era was being combined with the grittier funk of earlier years –with boundless possibilities!. Mostly rare cuts – the full length jams, too! Disc 1 includes "Hang With The Gang" by Backlash, "Clap Song" by Pied Piper OF Funkingham, "I'm So Glad" by Legacy, "Tighten It Up" by BLT, "Got This Feelin'" by Hypertension, "Bottom Line" by South Bronx, "Soul Kick" by Billy Mersey Band, "West Coast Drive" by VIP Connection and more. Disc 2 is just as wonderful, and touches on early party hip hop a bit more, and titles include "We Rap More Mellow" (Joey Negro remix) by Younger Generation, "The Man With The Master Plan" by Billy Lamont, "Reach Out (And Touch Someone)" by Leprechan, "Feel The Beat" by Johnny Adams, "Freak Unique" by Nature's Creation, "Funk Affair" by Standing Room Only, "Power Funk" by Power Band and more.

A catchy bass heavy number with serious dancefloor appeal that doesn't sacrifice any of it's slick modern soul production, in our opinion, the best cut off Change's sophomore LP, Miracles, when the group was still working in a post disco, 80s groove mode that didn't betray the fact that they were largely a studio creation. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Jamaican Recordings (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Stellar dubs from Tommy McCook – co-founder of The Skatalites and master studio player for myriad classic ska and rocksteady recordings – great stuff from the pivotal 70s period! The style here is more richly arranged than a lot of the dub from the 70s onward – with lots of space for more instruments into the mix, still heavy with echoey, dubby atmospherics. Musicians include The Aggrovators, Soul Syndicate, Sly & Robbie, Sly Dunbar, Robbie Shakespeare, Aston Barrett and Earl Smith. Tracks include Includes "Tommy's Hop", "Take This Fruit", "Jumper's Dub", "Merry Up", "Aggrovating Horns", "Dub Train", "Waltzing Rockers", "Dub Fever", "Dub For Ethiopia", "Chantdown Babylon With Horns", and "Dub Creation".

✨✧ Narassa (Sandro Brugnolini)Viaggio Pop 1 & 2 ... LP
Cinedelic (Italy), 1974. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 CooperPlaces I Know/The Machine Gun Co (with download) ... LP
Dawn/Paradise Of Bachelors, 1971/1972. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $19.99 27.99
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

Willie DixonI Am The Blues ... CD
Columbia/Legacy, 1970. Used ... $4.99
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".

✨✧ Shawn LeeGolden Age Against The Machine ... CD
BBE (UK), 2014. Used ... $7.99
A whole new side of Shawn Lee's talents – an album that mixes his great ear for funk with rhymes from a series of guest MCs – all at a level that really takes us back to true school productions of the 90s! Lee's got plenty of 60s and 70s funk and jazz elements in the mix – and a number of tracks are instrumentals, which showcase his deft instrumental creations without any lyrics at all. The vocal tracks are great, too – and feature performances from Ohmega Watts, Braille, Think Tank, MC Shawny Shawn, Princess, Earl Zinger, and others – on tracks that include a great remake of "We Got The Jazz", plus "Wake Up", "Back To The Future", "Stay On Course", "Forward To The Past", "Ashes To Ashes", "Schoolhouse Funk", "Baby Breakin", "Marimba", "Hip Hop Harp", and "Big Bad Wolf".

Mats ObergImprovisational Two.Five ... CD
Caprice (Sweden), 2014. Used ... $8.99
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

The book features the creations of 37 different contemporary artists – each of whom gets a section devoted to their work – filled with images that are extremely vibrant, and which move way past radical type, into territory that's more like "art with words" or "installation with characters" – sure to please any fan of interesting layouts and text, but also appealing to a much wider art audience too.

Mondo, 1980. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $25.99 30.98
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

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.

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.

Norton, Mid 60s. Sealed ... $11.99
Norton Records, the reigning deep garage rock relic hunters, have done it again – a straight up incredible batch of rugged, shambling r&b fueled, punk rock prefiguring singles from 1964-1968 – stuff that's never even been officially released! The stuff runs the gamut, from raw, but capable blue eyed interpretations of r&b, to wild instrument bashing in the most hard charging and stumbling tradition. Some of it's ultra low fi, others raw, but with a clarity that could have pushed it closer to the mainstream – totally great stuff that's gotta be fresh news to even the most devoting 60s garage enthusiasts! Titles include "Life Of My Own" by Loved Ones, "It's Your Choice" by Briks, "I Love You So" by Others, "The Laugh's On You" by Other Ones, "And You Believe Me" by Fabulous Courdels, "I've Paid My Dues" by Creations, "Thinkin Bout It" by Sheep and more. 14 tracks in all.

Be! (Germany), Mid 50s. New Copy 5 x 10 inch LP, 6 x (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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

Includes performances of "Hockey", "Curling", and "Fencing". CD
