✨✧ BandBand (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol, 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Maybe not the first album from the legendary Band – but a record in which the group get everything completely right all the way through – and sparkle with that special sound that continues to influence generations of music makers, and music lovers! All the great elements the group were bringing to their work with Bob Dylan are in place here – but the focus is completely different, with this warm glow that really fits the vocals of Levon Helm, and a sense of unified vision that makes it really hard to even come up with a match for the energy of the group on this album. The great John Simon adds a few special touches to the overall sound – and titles include "Rockin Chair", "Across The Great Divide", "When You Awake", "Up On Cripple Creek", "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down", "Look Out Cleveland", and "King Harvest". Includes 7 bonus tracks. CD
(Includes 7 alternate takes.)

✨✧ BandLast Waltz ... CD
Warner, 1978. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
One of the most iconic rock and roll shows of all time – the late 70s farewell to The Band – and quite famously, much more than a final concert by an esteemed band, it's actually a rock, pop, folk, blues and soul summit that features The Band as the house band. This landmark document of the event has always been one of rock's more opulent releases – with appearances by Muddy Waters, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Van Morrison, Dr. John, The Staples and more. Includes "The From The Last Waltz", "Up On Cripple Creek", "The Shape I'm In", "Down In South New Orleans" with Bobby Charles, "Forever Young" with Bob Dylan, "I Shall Be Released (Finale)", "Rag Mama Rag", "Further Up The Road" with Eric Clapton, "Dry Your Eyes" with Eric Clapton, "Evangeline" with Emmylou Harris, "The Weight" with The Staples and more.

✨✧ Dave Brubeck & Paul DesmondDave Brubeck/Paul Desmond (Jazz At The Blackhawk/Jazz At Storyville) ... CD
Fantasy, Early 50s. Used ... $6.99
Really early work from the team of Dave Brubeck and Paul Desmond – cut years before their hit fame at Columbia, when Brubeck was first cooking up his modernist combo, and recording for Fantasy Records on the west coast. The set brings together a few early albums – Jazz At The Blackhawk and Jazz At Storyville – both harder to find sets that show Brubeck mostly working on turning out new versions of older standards, filtered through his modern take to time structures and phrasing. Titles include "Jeepers Creepers", "Let's Fall In Love", "I May Be Wrong", "Over The Rainbow", "Tea For Two", and "This Can't Be Love". CD

Buck Clayton & Buddy TateBuck & Buddy Blow The Blues ... CD
Prestige/Swingville/OJC, 1961. Used ... $9.99
A romping little session from Buck Clayton and Buddy Tate – served up in a looser, more relaxed setting than the former's albums for Columbia, and a slightly more swing-based mode than the latter's dates for Chess! Both horn players get plenty of room to solo in the open-ended Swingville mode – Buck on trumpet and Buddy on both tenor and clarinet – and the group's a nice one too, since Sir Charles Thompson's playing piano, Gene Ramey's on bass, and Gus Johnson's on drums. Titles include "Blue Creek", "Blue Breeze", "Blue Ebony", "Rompin At Red Bank", and "Dallas Delight". CD

✨✧ Natalie ColeUnforgettable With Love ... CD
Elektra, 1991. Used ... $1.99
A much better record than we want to admit, with Natalie moving towards jazzy numbers and standards, for a blockbuster Grammy winning effort. Her voice stands up well to the mainstream polish, and even the creepy "duet" with her father is enjoyable. 22 tracks in all, including "The Very Thought Of You", "Paper Moon", "Mona Lisa", 'This Can't Be Love", "Lush Life", "That Sunday That Summer", "Avalon", "Don't Get Around Much Anymore", "Nature Boy", "Darling, Je Vous Aime Beaucoup", "Thous Swell" and "Unforgettable".

✨✧ Ornette ColemanSkies Of America ... CD
Columbia/Legacy, 1972. Used ... Out Of Stock
A brilliant large ensemble work from Ornette Coleman – ambitious material recorded with full orchestra, in a haunting sound that's light years from any of his smaller group recordings of the 60s and 70s! There's an incredible feel to the strings used here – played by the London Symphony Orchestra, conducted by David Measham – all tied up and dark, with swirling sounds that run up beautifully from the bottom, then take off to the skies promised in the title – opening the door for Ornette to come in and solo freely over the top – in a magical mix that easily makes the record a standout in his long and mighty career! Harmolodic theory is definitely a part of Coleman's conception here – but in very different ways than his quartet or quintet recordings. Tracks include "The Men Who Live In The White House", "Sunday In America", "Dreams", "Native Americans", "Silver Screen", and "The Artist In America". CD

Con Funk ShunFever ... CD
Mercury/Vinyl Masterpiece (Netherlands), 1981. Used ... $11.99
One of the sweetest-grooving albums ever from Con Funk Shun – proof that the group was almost better when they tightened things up a bit! The set was produced by Deodato at the height of his hit-making soul powers – and it's got a sharpness that really helps bring the Con Funk Shun groove into focus – a style that's not nearly as commercial as Deodato's work with Kool & The Gang, but which shares a similar blend of jazz and modern soul elements! Most tracks groove nicely, even some of the mellower ones – and Deodato's got a perfect balance in the sound of the set – keyboards, beats, and bass all in the right places, with plenty of soulful vocals flowing warmly over the top. Titles include "Don't Let Your Love Grow Cold", "Hard Lovin", "If I'm Your Lover", "Can You Feel The Groove Tonight", "Indiscreet Sweet", and "Baby I'm Hooked". CD

✨✧ Edson XGinga A Alma Do Futebol Brasileiro ... CD
Lua (Brazil), 2006. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A creepy cover, but a really amazing batch of grooves – one that blends rootsy Brazilian percussion with elements of dub, funk, and hip hop – originally recorded as the soundtrack for a documentary on football, but sounding plenty darn great here on its own! Edson X is at the helm of the record, but gets help from a number of other younger artists as well – and the album's awash in tight percussion jams, funky rhythms, stripped down grooves that are all surprisingly free of cliche! At times, there's a bit of the Trama-like blend of old and new going on – but the overall sound is much rougher and more rootsy, filled with live instrumentation and sometimes a bit of the noisier side of baile funk production. Titles include "Forro No Bar", "O Que E A Ginga", "Gingar Para Ser Feliz (Ginga mix)", "Aleluia (baile funk mix)", "O Craque", "A Hora Do Goi (swing guitar)", "Bonde Do Bem (live session)", and "Funk Da Vitoria (extended)".

✨✧ Henry FranklinSkipper ... CD
Black Jazz, 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest moments ever from west coast bassman Henry Franklin – a set of soaring, spiritual power – and a key demonstration of his rich energy as a leader! Franklin heads a wicked lineup here – playing both Fender and acoustic bass amidst other players who include Bill Henderson on electric piano, Charles Owens on tenor and soprano sax, Oscar Brashear on trumpet, Kenny Climax on guitar, and Michael Carvin on drums – all coming together with a mix of spiritual vibes and soulful undercurrents, in ways that almost give the record a Strata East sort of vibe! The whole thing is certainly one of the most memorable sessions on the Black Jazz label – and titles include "Outbreak", "Little Miss Laurie", "Theme For Jojo", and "Plastic Creek Stomp". CD
(1998 US pressing.)

✨✧ Grant GreenFinal Comedown - Original Soundtrack (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1972. Used ... Out Of Stock
An excellent lost funky soundtrack on Blue Note – their only one for years, and Grant Green's entry into the blacksploitation genre! The whole thing bristles with the kind of chunky, thumping percussive feel as the best funky soundtracks of the era – informed by the work of Curtis Mayfield and Isaac Hayes, but with the deeper jazz feel that Green brings from his other Blue Note sides of the time! Some cuts are quite funky, particularly the opener, "Past, Present, and Future" with it's crisp trap, chicken scratch guitar and bongo driven beat. Others have more of a stripped-down dope instrumental feel – there's some sweet funky flute work on "Fathers Lament", and even a slight bossa groove creeps into the title track! The whole album's very nice, and it's very different than any of Grant Green's other work! Other titles include "Afro Party", Luana's Theme", "Slight Fear And Terror", and "Battle Scene". CD

Eddie HendersonBe Cool ... CD
Smoke Sessions, 2018. Used ... $9.99
Cool is one thing that Eddie Henderson always is – as his sense of tone and timing just seem to get better and better as the years go on – and that's saying a lot, given that Eddie's legacy goes way back to the 70s! And although he did plenty of fusion and soul experiments in his youth, the later decades have always had Henderson moving into a role more as a classic stylist on the trumpet – one who seems to always set a new bar for his playing as time passes by – to a point where anyone would be daft not to call Eddie one of the more important voices on his instrument in the past 30 years. That sense of cool is definitely in place here, as is Henderson's subtle swing, even on the ballads – as Eddie works in a tight quintet with Donald Harrison on alto, Kenny Barron on piano, Essiet Essiet on bass, and Mike Clark on drums – on titles that include "Fran Dance", "Loft Funk", "Nightride", "The Sand Castle Head Hunter", "Naima", "Smoke Screen", "Bee Cool", and "Moontrane".

✨✧ Freddie Hubbard, Hubert Laws, & OthersCalifornia Concert – The Hollywood Palladium (with bonus tracks) ... CD
CTI, 1971. Used 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautifully expanded version of this classic – two CDs, with previously unissued material appearing here for the first time ever! Although the genius of the CTI label might be often thought of in a studio format – especially since the Creed Taylor Influence on the label is what really turned the sound into something wonderful – this live set from 1971 shows that the label's players, with the right frame of mind, can easily get into the CTI groove in any setting – soaring out in a magical blend of acoustic and electric instrumentation, really stretching out on some killer long tracks! The group's a great all-star one – with organ and electric piano by Johnny Hammond, guitar by George Benson, flute by Hubert Laws, trumpet by Freddie Hubbard, tenor by Stanley Turrentine, and percussion by Airto – and all tracks are long, and very free-flowing. Titles include "Red Clay", "Sugar", "Blues West", "Leaving West", and "Fire & Rain". CD also features the never-issued tracks "Impressions", "So What", and "Straight Life" – all nice and long! CD

✨✧ KinksArthur – Or The Fall & Decline Of The British Empire (50th anniversary 2CD set) ... CD
Reprise/BMG, 1969. Used 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A true masterpiece of late 60s pop – music originally recorded for a TV special in 1969 – and one of the Kinks' greatest albums ever! The semi-concept album traces the woes, worries, and hopes of a British family, as one half is on the verge of emigration to Australia. The work comes out of the sort of songwriting that Ray Davies had been perfecting on albums like Village Green and Something Else – but the overall style is more sophisticated, yet not nearly as self-indulgent as some of the 70s concept clunkers. Instead, the songs are brilliantly tight, and stand on their own well past the concept of the original album. Titles include "Victoria", "Brainwashed", "Australia", "Shangri-La", "Mr Churchill Says", and "Yes Sir No Sir". CD version comes in a great book-styled cover, with very detailed notes – and CD2 features the Great Lost Dave Davies album – with titles that include "This Man He Weeps Tonight", "Mindless Child Of Motherhood", "Mr Shoemaker's Daughter", "Lincoln County", "Do You Wish To Be A Man", "Creeping Jean", and "Mr Reporter". Also features bonus tracks – "Plastic Man (stereo)", "Kign Kong (mono)", "Drivin (mono)", "Australia (Australian mono single edit)", "Lincoln County (mono single edit)", "Creeping Jean (mono single edit)", and "Hold My Hand (mono)".

✨✧ Little RichardHere's Little Richard (with bonus tracks & videos) ... CD
Specialty, 1957. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A landmark album of hard-rocking soul – and a record that broke open both genres for a generations to come! The set's about as classic as you can get for Little Richard – filled with killer numbers that jump around boldly in some heavy New Orleans piano-led grooves – all topped by Richard's raw, raspy, utterly amazing vocals! And sure, you may know some cuts here from oldies radio, but together they really have a heck of a lot of power – and stand as a testament to the fresh genius that Little Richard represented at this early point – a sound that hundreds would try to copy, but nobody could ever hope to match. Titles include "Tutti Frutti", "Rip It Up", "True, Fine Mama", "Long Tall Sally", "She's Got It", "Oh Why", "Baby", and "Slippin' & Slidin". Great new CD reissue – with bonus demo versions of "Baby" and "All Night Long", and an interview with Art Rupe – plus bonus videos of "Tutti Frutti" and "Long Tall Sally", both screen tests! CD

✨✧ Mamas & PapasAll The Leaves Are Brown – The Golden Era Collection ... CD
MCA, Late 60s. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Attention fans of The Mamas & The Papas: Christmas has come early this year! This totally excellent set is better than any fan of this groovy late 60s vocal group could have ever hoped for – as it features 4 of their classic LPs for Dunhill, presented in their entirety, mixed with additional bonus tracks! This one is a huge surprise to all of us who've had to be content with only greatest hits collections by the group for years – and it's the first time we've really been able to hear (on CD) all the subtle mania of the group. These guys are way more than just their hits "Monday Monday" and "California Dreamin" – as John & Michelle Phillips, Cass Elliott, and Denny Doherty were as much a part of the mad, twisted, late 60s LA scene as Brian Wilson, Arthur Lee, or Van Dyke Parks. There's a whopping 52 tracks in all, plus a totally excellent booklet of notes – and titles include "Dancing In The Street", "I Saw Her Again", "Words Of Love", "Straight Shooter", "Got A Feelin", "Safe In My Garden", "Gemini Childe", "Nothing's Too Good For My Little Girl", "Midnight Voyage", "Creeque Alley", "Dedicated To The One I Love", "Glad To Be Unhappy", "I Saw Her Again", and lots more!

Charles MansonCharles Manson Sings (aka Lie – The Love & Terror Cult) ... CD
Aware One, 1968. Used ... $11.99
If Terry Melcher hadn't given Charles Manson the brush off, this album may well have come out on Columbia in the late 60s, and made Manson the rock and roll star he wanted to be! And while we're as disturbed as everyone else by the history of Charlie's violence, we also have to admit that we're kind of taken by this album – and find it a surprisingly good little record in a 60s folksy mode. There's really none of the creepiness that you might expect, and Manson's got a naivete that kind of transforms a Dylan-esque style into one that's overflowing with the raw emotion and personality of Jonathan Richman (but none of the silliness, of course.) Most of the music is recorded in a spare style, with acoustic guitar backing and a bit of additional vocals – and titles include "Ego", "Look At Your Game Girl", "I'll Never Say Never To Always", "Home Is Where You're Happy", "Big Iron Door", "I Once Knew A Man", "Garbage Dump", "Don't Do Anything Illegal", and "Sick City".

Roscoe MitchellDiscussions ... CD
Wide Hive, 2017. Used ... $5.99
The title's an apt one – as the music here is based on the improvisations from Roscoe Mitchell's earlier Conversations albums – but recast in a whole new way for an improvising orchestra! The group here features Mitchell on sopranino sax – a very strong voice out in the lead – but the larger ensemble really has a lot to add to the sound, in a lineup that includes flute, clarinet, bass clarinet, bassoon, and oboe – reed elements used by Mitchell as in some of his previous "serious music" experiments – then mixed with violin, viola, electronics, trumpet, trombone, and percussion. The sound is a wonderful bridge between the compositional world of Mitchell and some of his looser small group improvisations – and the album satisfied both sides of that sonic spectrum in a great way. Titles include "Cascade", "Cracked Roses", "Who Dat", "Frenzy House", "Home Screen", and "I'll See You Out There". CD

✨✧ Hank MobleyNo Room For Squares (RVG remaster edition) ... CD
Blue Note, 1963. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
No room for squares with grooves this great – a classic Hank Mobley session from the mid 60s, and one that really shows the growth in his style at the time! The work's still strongly in a hardbop style, but modal elements are definitely creeping into the mix – a bolder sense of rhythm that really transforms the music from before – and lets Mobley reach out in a whole different way with his solos! The album features material from two different sessions – each of which have Mobley's tenor coming into play with other inventive artists on Blue Note at the time. One date features Lee Morgan on trumpet, Andrew Hill on piano, John Ore on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on drums – and the other features Donald Byrd on trumpet, Herbie Hancock on piano, Butch Warren on bass, and Jones again on drums. Titles include "Up A Step", "Me N You", "Three Way Split", "Carolyn", and the classic "No Room For Squares". Plus, this reissue CD features 3 bonus cuts – "Old World New Imports", and alternate takes of "Carolyn" and "No Room For Squares". CD

✨✧ Hugo MontenegroOthers By Brothers/Scenes & Themes (SACD) ... CD
RCA/Vocalion (UK), 1972/1975. Used ... Out Of Stock
A pair of gems from Hugo Montenegro – back to back on a single CD! Others By Brothers is sweet 70s funk from Hugo Montenegro – an artist who really developed a great ear for electric styles by this point in his career! The album's very heavy on Arp – and includes variations on the instrument in many formats – all set to funky jazz arrangements that follow from Hugo's previous Stevie Wonder album – and like that one, offer up his own take on 70s soul! The Arp-y keyboards show up on nearly every track – adding in so many wonderful electronic elements – alongside warmer winds from Don Menza and Ernie Watts, and smooth grooves from a rhythm combo that includes Larry Carlton on guitar and Hal Blaine on drums. Titles include a great cover of Stevie Wonder's "Creepin", plus cuts by "other brothers", like "Feel Like Makin' Love", "What's Goin' On", and "Nothing From Nothing" – as well as the great original "Noah's Arp"! On Scenes & Themes, Hugo Montenegro takes on a whole host of soundtrack themes – but updates the music nicely in his 70s electronic style – which features a fair bit of Arp mixed with larger arrangements and strings! The approach isn't as funk-based as some of Hugo's other albums from the time, but still comes across with a mighty sweet vibe – analogue electronics bubbling amidst larger orchestrations, on groovy titles that include "Alfie", "The Look Of Love", "Learn To Say Goodbye", "Shadow Of Your Smile", "Love Story", and "A Man & A Woman".

✨✧ Shuggie Otis & OthersIn Session – Great Rhythm & Blues ... CD
Goldenlane/Blues Spectrum, 1970s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A pretty great overview of work that Shuggie Otis recorded while working in the studios at the Blues Spectrum label during the 70s – mostly backing up other singers in a series of sessions recorded by his dad Johnny Otis. The Blues Spectrum label was notable in that it featured work by a number of lost greats who'd been important in R&B in the 40s and 50s on the west coast, but who'd not made it into the recording studios in a number of years. Otis Sr got them back, recording for his Blues Spectrum label – and often gave their music a hipper, more 70s-styled sound – an effort that was clearly helped by the presence of Shuggie! The package for this one is great – with a good set of notes on the label and sessions, and images of the covers of the old albums too. Titles include "Driftin Blues" and "Big Legged Woman" by Charles Brown, "Shake Rattle & Roll" and "TV Mama" by Big Joe Turner, "Willie & The Hand Jive" and "Country Girl" by Johnny Otis, "Trackin Machine" and "Doin It" by Richard Berry, "Choo Choo Boogie" and "I Got The Walkin Blues" by Louis Jordan, "Chicken Shack Boogie" by Amos Milburn, "I'm The Midnight Creeper" and "Sugar" by Eddie Cleanhead Vinson, and "I Got A Big Fat Mama" and "Information Blues" by Roy Milton.

Procol HarumSalty Dog (Original Master Recording) ... CD
A&M/Mobile Fidelity, 1969. Used ... $28.99
Maybe our favorite album from Procol Harum – a set that adds in some wonderful use of strings to the group's unique style – almost moving forward on the promise of the earlier single "Whiter Shade Of Pale", moving into much deeper territory overall! There's something about Procol Harum on their early album's that's really indescribable – certainly an influence from blues and roots, but this really striking step forward with their song ideas and overall construction – not into jamming or progressive modes, like some of their contemporaries – although they're certainly never afraid to rock – but almost this balance between personal poetry and brashness, with kind of a slightly creepy current at times – as illustrated beautifully by the image on the cover. Titles include the completely wonderful "A Salty Dog", p0lus "Wreck Of The Hesperus", "Boredom", "The Devil Came To Kansas", "Too Much Between Us", "All This & More", and "The Milk Of Human Kindness".

Tommy Boy, 1989. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The fantastic debut of Queen Latifah – a record that was done way before she was a star on the screen, and a set that also set a whole new standard for the female voice in hip hop as well! As you can tell by the cover, Latifah's got a proud, righteous vibe on the set – working with the Flavor Unit, and some especially great production from Mark The 45 King – who keeps things crisp and funky while the Queen serves up some fantastic lines! Other production work is by KRS One, Louis Vega, and Prince Paul – the last of whom handles the fantastic "Mama Gave Birth To The Soul Children", which features guest work from De La Soul. Other cuts include "Princess Of The Posse", "Ladies First", "Wrath Of My Madness", "Come Into My House", "Evil That Men Do", "A King & Queen Creation", "Latifah's Law", and "Dance For Me". CD

Buddy RichNo Funny Hats ... CD
Lobitos Creek, 1978. Used ... $6.99
A rare Buddy Rich set from 1978 – presented with his Killer Force band (possibly because it was made up of some of the few players who could stand up to his wrath!) The set was recorded live in Sacramento, and has a hard-driving approach that's similar to some of Rich's best work of the late 60s and early 70s – not funky, really, but nicely punched up with a hard-swinging groove that shows Buddy's key role in opening up the style of the larger group in the years before the funky jazz explosion of the 70s. Two of the album's best cuts – "Slo Funk" and "Tales Of Rhoda Rat" – were composed and arranged by the great Bob Mintzer. And other talents on the set include Steve Marcus, who plays most of the lead tenor bits – plus altoist Andy Fusco and trumpeter Chuck Schmidt. Titles include "Grand Concourse", "Someday My Prince Will Come", and the two above mentioned jammers! CD

Logan RichardsonShift ... CD
Blue Note, 2016. Used ... $6.99
The Blue Note debut of alto saxophonist Logan Richardson – an up-and-coming player you might know from a few previous records, or his work with Jason Moran, Gerald Clayton, or the Next Collective! This set may well surpass all those other projects, though – as Richardson's really emerging as a visionary in his own right – leading a creative quintet here that features strong piano and Fender Rhodes from Moran, guitars from Pat Metheny, and drums from Nasheet Waits – a lineup that might well intimidate a weaker player, but which really seems to set Richardson on fire! The presence of both Metheny and Moran is great – and gives the music this electric vibe that also retains an edge – one that makes for a nice counterpart to Logan's lines on alto, and which seems to underscore some of their darker qualities too. Production and performance are pretty straightforward, which is a further strength of the set – and titles are mostly originals – save for a version of Bruno Mars' "Locked Out Of Heaven". Original tracks include "Time", "Alone", "Imagine", "Creeper", "Mind Free", and "In Your Next Life". CD

✨✧ Nino RotaFellini Soundtracks (Early Movies/La Strada/Notti Di Cabiria/La Dolce Vita/8 1/2) (5CD set) ... CD
DOL (Russia), Late 50s/Early 60s. Used 5CD ... Just Sold Out!
5CDs, and a set of great soundtracks to early films by director Federico Fellini – music that forever set the standard for a new generation of film composers! First up is La Strada – the brilliant mid 50s filled that starred a young Giulettia Masini as one of the saddest clowns ever to grace the silver screen – an amazing performance supported here by key early work from Nino Rota. Rota's score is a mix of circus-like themes and darker moments – all delivered with a dynamic energy that's really wonderful – almost leaping out of the speakers at some points, then sliding into shimmering, watery depths at others. Titles include "Il Pranzo Di Nozze", "Tema Della Strada", "Gelsomina", "Il Bambino Malato", "Zampano Abbandona Gelsomina", and "Addio Del Matto". Next is Le Notti Di Cabiria – aka Nights Of Cabiria – a film of similar vintage, with an equally wonderful score by Rota! The music's a bit more lush this time around – fuller orchestrations at times, but always with that ear for an isolated melody amidst the larger body – that sense of personality that makes Rota's soundtracks so great. Titles include "Picnic Al Divino Amore", "L'Illusionista", "Il Trasloco", "Aspettando Giorgio", and "Le Notti Di Cabiria". La Dolce Vita is one of the all-time classic Italian film scores – a groundbreaking soundtrack from Nino Rota, and one of the first Italian works of this nature to hit the record racks in the US! The music is a beautiful blend of whimsy and sadness – penned by Rota with a variety of light themes that dance together with a dreamy sort of quality – romantic one minute, dramatic the next – always handled with Nino's inventive sense of musical play! A delight throughout – with titles that include "La Doce Vita", "Cadillac", "Via Veneto", "Titoli Di Testa", and "Valzer". 8 1/2 is beautiful work by Nino Rota – filled with the kind of classic themes that distinguished his best work for Fellini. Carlo Savina conducted, and he does an excellent job with Rota's ideas – crafting them into short little packets of sound, woven tightly into little balls that pass back and forth as the mood of the film changes, in a similar mode to the scoring for La Dolce Vita. Titles include "Cadillac", "Cimitero", "Discesa Ai Fanghi", "La Passerella D'Addio", "Concertino Alle Terme", and "E Poi". Last up is a special soundtrack – featuring works from very early films by Fellini – including Il Bidone, I Vitelloni, Un Agenzia Matrimoniale, Lo Sceicco Bianco, and La Grande Seduzione. CD

✨✧ Stevie WonderFulfillingness' First Finale ... CD
Tamla, 1974. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A fantastic 70s classic from Stevie Wonder – part of a great run of records in which he broke completely from his earlier Motown sound – and showed the world that he was one of the true musical visionaries of the decade! The righteous currents of his previous few albums are fully in place here, taken with a bit more focus that helped the record gain Stevie a few new followers in the crossover market, while still offering up plenty to please all the minds that had already been blown by is initial work of the 70s! There's some fantastic themes here, and so many new ideas too – and titles include the slow-funk moog classic "Creepin", which has these wonderful washes of sound throughout, weird vocals by Stevie, and some drums that bump around in off-kilter little patterns just at the right moments. The album also includes the hit "Boogie On Reggae Woman", plus "Too Shy To Say", "You Haven't Done Nothin", "It Ain't No Use", "Bird Of Beauty", and "Please Don't Go". CD

✨✧ VariousClassic Bluegrass From Smithsonian Folkways ... CD
Smithsonian Folkways, 1950s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
OK, we know bluegrass compilations aren't exactly a rarity these days, but this set from Folkways is about as good of one these things as we've seen – and it's from Folkways after all, not some creepy sub-major label exploitation set! In the late 50s Folkways was pretty much the main reservoir for true bluegrass LPs, and this set mines the best of the catalog from the time. The necessary great ones and the label heroes are represented, of course – Bill Monroe and his Bluegrass Boys, the Stanley Brothers, Doc Watson – but like the best similar comps, there are also tons of fine tunes that tend to get lost without a broad cultural trend to stir them up out of the ground. Not just for archivists by any stretch – if a title like Classic Bluegrass From Smithsonian Folkways sounds interesting to your ears you'll love this thing! 25 tracks, including "Little Birdie" and "Rabbit In A Log" by the Stanley Brothers, "Get Up John" by Bill Monroe, "(Legend Of The) Brown Mountain Light" by The Country Gentlemen, "The Train That Carried My Girl From Town" by Doc Watson, ""Wayfaring Stranger" by Cullen Gaylean And The Virginia Mountain Boys", "Teardrops In My Eyes" by The Friendly City Playboys, and tons more.

✨✧ VariousGhoul's Night Out Vol 1 – Killer Halloween Rockers For Your Thrilling Pleasure ... CD
Simpletone, 1960s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Groovy and ghoulish groovers from the deeper, weirder novelty scene of the 60s – post rockabilly numbers about monsters, bug eyed R&B about the the boogie man, surf pop with schlockly Transylvanian narrators and more! It's really fun stuff, much of it probably made in the wake of the "Monster Mash" craze, and likely played by stellar session musicians under pseudonyms – but whatever the origin, it's bizarro and wildly fun stuff like they just don't make in today's music rackets! Includes "The Cave" by Gary Spider Webb, "The Mechanical Man" by Bent Bolt And The Nuts, "Summertime" by The Thunderbirds, "Werewolf" by Carl Bonafede, "The Monster" by Bobby Please And The Pleasers, "Vampire's Ball" by Mann Drake, "The Thing (Part 1)" by Curtis And The Creepers and more.

VariousWorldwide Family Vol 2 – Presented By Kutmah ... CD
Brownswood (UK), 2012. Used ... $4.99
Crispy cosmic contemporary sounds from the 21st Century underground – pulled together by Kutiman, and featuring a host of previously-unreleased tracks! Beats are in the forefront on most numbers, as are inventive styles of production – ways of folding together sounds into fresh new tones and timings – modes that are abstract, yet never too much so to be soulful – a balance we can really appreciate! Kutiman's ear is really great here – and things are definitely in the best modes we've come to expect from the contemporary Brownswood scene too. Titles include "Twin Flame" by Gaby Hernandez, "LA" by Shash'U, "Leaving Home" by Lapti, "Higher" by Tehbis, "Ridda Montain" by Mo Kolours, "Creeper Shit" by Groundislava, "Blunt Hopes" by Esmk, "Thanks" by Seven Davis Jr, and "Are You Feelin Hot" by Hudson Mohawk.
