Bulbous CreationYou Won't Remember Dying (with bonus download) ... LP
Numero, 1969. New Copy ... $14.99 19.98
A record that definitely lives up to the promise of its cover – especially the creepy image of a skeleton shooting up on the front! Bulbous Creation hail from the same Kansas scene documented on Numero's Cavern Sound compilation – but unlike some of the other groups, they've got more than enough going on to offer up a full album here – a really heady, tripped-out batch of music that may well be some of the weirdest ever recorded in that legendary cave in Missouri! The production is almost a bit muddy at times – or maybe it's the way the instruments are performed – which creates this even more sinister feel to the whole thing – as if you've surprised the group during a very private moment, or stumbled upon them performing some ritual in the woods! The song titles say an awful lot about the record, too – and include "Satan", "Hooked", "Under The Black Sun", "Fever Machine Man", and "End Of The Page". LP, Vinyl record album

Raul DeSouzaSoul & Creation ... CD
Pao (Austria), 2007. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
Great work from trombonist Raul De Souza – a sweet blend of jazz, soul, and his Brazilian roots – and kind of a small combo outing that recreates the magic of some of his best records from the 70s! The vibe is nicely laidback – small group instrumentation, without too much in the way of production – and the group soars with great energy that comes from Raul's trombone, the bass of Cameron Brown, drums of Idris Muhammad, and guitar of Allegre Corea – who also scats a bit on a few great numbers! There's also some Fender Rhodes in the mix, and a few tunes feature sweet vocals from Maria Pentschev – a singer we don't know at all, but who's got this warmly raspy sound that's mighty nice. Titles include "Splendid Night", "Palco", "Funky Man", "Love Is On Our Way", "No No No", and "Djavan". CD

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

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

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!

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

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".

PowderKa-Pow! – An Explosive Collection 1967/1968 ... CD
Big Beat (UK), 1967/1968. New Copy ... $15.99
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".

Tangerine DreamSorcerer ... CD
MCA, 1977. Used ... $6.99
A great soundtrack moment for Tangerine Dream – and one of their darkest, too! Bill Friedkin's films are always pretty darn spooky – but the music of the group definitely adds a lot here – bringing in these coldly hypnotic passages that really work wonders with the images on the screen – and, in a way, also help Tangerine Dream compress their often longform electronic musings into more of an "essence" by focusing on scene-based compositions! And even without the film, the album still really stands strongly on its own – a great maturation moment for Tangerine Dream, but one that still has all the edge and darkness of their best early recordings too. Titles include "Rain Forest", "The Call", "Creation", "Vengeance", "Search", and "Grind". CD

Rolling Stones/EMI, 1978. Used ... $2.99
During the mid 70s, a number of major label rock stars had their dalliance with reggae, and after inviting him to tour with them, the Stones decided to start releasing Peter Tosh's LPs. This record was the first of Tosh's released by Keith Richards and Mick Jagger on their Rolling Stones label and they guest on a couple of tracks. Despite their presence, the album is a fairly solid roots effort, if a bit uneven, though not quite as radical or grooving as Equal Rights or Legalize It. Tracks include "Pick Myself Up", "Soon Come", "Moses- The Prophets", "Stand Firm", "Dem Ha Fe Get A Beaten", and "Creation". CD

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

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.

2 Isley Brothers gems from 2 different eras – back-to-back on a single CD! 1969's It's Our Thing is a stone classic – 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! It's filled with sinister, sexy numbers that bristle with energy that's still heard best here at the point of its creation! Tracks include "It's Your Thing", "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". Go All The way came about a decade later – at the end of the 70s, and the Isleys are still going strong – keeping it real and going for a smooth soul sound that would be one of their biggest strengths during the early 80s! This sound can be heard to perfection on the tracks "Say You Will" and "Here We Go Again", both wonderful numbers that have this strident groove that's part "Harvest For The World", part compressed guitars and keyboards working in a smooth wall of sound. Those two alone are more than worth the price of the record, and other titles include "Pass It On", "Go All The Way", and "The Belly Dancer" – all done in the Isleys' trademarked "part 1 & 2" style!

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

✨✧ Peter ToshBush Doctor (Rolling Stones) ... LP
Rolling Stones, 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
During the mid 70s, a number of major label rock stars had their dalliance with reggae, and after inviting him to tour with them, the Stones decided to start releasing Peter Tosh's LPs. This record was the first of Tosh's released by Keith Richards and Mick Jagger on their Rolling Stones label and they guest on a couple of tracks. Despite their presence, the album is a fairly solid roots effort, if a bit uneven, though not quite as radical or grooving as Equal Rights or Legalize It. Tracks include "Pick Myself Up", "Soon Come", "Moses- The Prophets", "Stand Firm", "Dem Ha Fe Get A Beaten", and "Creation". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousFallin Off The Reel Vol 1 – Truth & Soul Singles Collection ... CD
Truth & Soul, 1970s/2000s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A treasure trove of great funky bits from the last few years – 19 tracks from the Soul Fire/Truth & Soul Catalog – none of which have ever been on CD before! The work here is all great – very much in the best mode of the deep funk underground, but also showing the unusual sounds and styles the T&S crew have come up with on recent records – modes that are far more than retro funk, and which have really set them apart from the Desco and Daptone scene before them! Added to the newer cuts are also some great rare numbers too – dark little gems reissued by Truth & Soul that sit nicely alongside the current tracks. Given that any one of the singles would cost you about half the price of the CD, you're getting a tremendous funky bargain here – nearly an hour of great music that includes "Honey Dove" and "Do You Love Me" by Lee Fields & The Expressions, "Feeling Good" by Bama & The Family, "Easy Easy Easy" and "KC Stomp" by Timothy McNealy, "CREAM" and "Glaciers Of Ice" by El Michels Affair, "Gotta Clean Up The World (parts 1 & 2)" by Funky Music Machine, "So Glad" by The Evil D's, "These Moments" and "Money Is King" by The Expressions, "Creation" by El Michels Affair, "Lima Blues" and "Mas Y Mas" by Bronx River Parkway, and "Drums Of Asiko" by Asiko.

Mike CooperPlaces I Know/The Machine Gun Co (with download) ... LP
Dawn/Paradise Of Bachelors, 1971/1972. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $26.99 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

Riz OrtolaniCannibal Holocaust (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
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

Elissa WardSecret Lives Of Married Women ... Book
Hard Case Crime, 2013. New Copy ... $3.99 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.

John Zorn/DitherJohn Zorn's Olympiad Vol 1 – Dither Plays Zorn ... CD
Tzadik, 2015. New Copy ... $9.99 15.98
Early "game" pieces by John Zorn – the kind of groundbreaking improvisational creations that made him an instant legend on the New York scene – performed here by the Dither quartet of guitars and other stringed instruments! The pieces here all pre-date the famous Cobra – perhaps the best-known of Zorn's game works – and Dither presents the music in different modes, with a few different performances of some of the works – some electric, some acoustic, and some mixed. Includes performances of "Hockey", "Curling", and "Fencing". CD

VariousCult Cargo – Belize City Boil Up ... CD
Numero, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $9.99
An amazing world of music – rare funk, soul, reggae, and other grooves from Belize – all beautifully compiled in the rich Numero Music style! We're really stunned by the set – as we had no idea at all that Belize had anything going on at this level – and the collection is an amazing surprise to our ears, filled with new delights at each turn, and clearly marking Belize as a new funky capitol on our ever-expanding map of musical understanding. Numero really outdid themselves with this package – going far beyond their already-great collections of work from the Bandit and Capsoul labels – to dig up a range of tracks that have never really made it out to the world at large, but which bubble over with influences from American funk and soul at the time. The notes are great, and the booklet's got plenty of excellent images to back up the writings – but the music is the real star of the set, and is presented on 16 tracks that include "More Love Reggae" and "Boogaloo A La Chuck" by Lord Rhaburn, "Theme From The Godfather" and "Backstabbers" by The Professionals, "Can't Go Halfway" and "Shame Shame Shame" by The Harmonettes, "Things Are Going To Work Out Right" and "Rated G" by The Web, "Funky Jive (parts 1& 2)" by Soul Creations, and "Long Time Boy" by Nadia Cattouse.

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)... $279.99 358.98
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

✨✧ 1910 Fruitgum CoHard Ride ... LP
Buddah, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

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".

✨✧ Shawn LeeGolden Age Against The Machine ... CD

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. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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
