Clutchy HopkinsWalking Backwards (CD & DVD) ... CD
Ubiquity, 2008. Used CD & DVD ... $4.99
Tripped out tracks with a funky cinematic feel – a great new project with mysterious origins – supposedly the work of the "mysterious Clutchy Hopkins", but really just the efforts of a batch of underground beatmakers! There's a spare, spacious approach here that almost reminds us of the energy that we first felt in DJ Shadow's groundbreaking work of a decade before – a similar love of gritty, organic source material – and an ear for putting it together with lots of dark twists and turns that balance nicely between classic funk and current hip hop production sensibilities. The flavor of each tune changes nicely – making the album way more than just a cliched collection of beats – and the set also features guest performances by Shawn Lee and Darondo. Titles include "Sound Of The Ghost", "Love Of A Woman", "Para Los Ninos", "Swap Meet Me At The Corner", "Alla Oscar", "Percy On The One", "Good Omen", "Rocktober", and "Horny Tickle". Features a bonus DVD that attempts to support the Clutchy Hopkins myth! CD
(There is no indication, but we are assuming that the DVD is NTSC format, Region 1.)

VariousSound Signature Presents – These Songs That Should’ve Been Out On Wax By Now Part 2 ... CD
Sound Signature, 2017. New Copy ... $11.99
A great idea for a series – contemporary tracks from the Detroit underground – all waiting to be issued as singles by the Sound Signature label – but all delayed because of the big backlog at pressing plants in these "vinyl madness" years! We're huge fans of the CD format – so really, the presentation here hardly matters to us – and in fact, having all these great tracks together is way more satisfying than digging them up on 12" singles – as we can really immerse ourselves in the music, and really just be flabbergasted by all the untapped genius working in the Motor City these days! The sound is even better than Sound Signature material from a decade ago – as the songs soar beautifully, with an even more righteous vision – and really gets us excited at the possibilities for the scene in years to come. There's no individual notes on the tracks, but this second volume features tracks by Tony Allen, Carl McIntosh, Theo Parris, Marcellus Pittman, The Unit, Duminie Desporres, DJ Kemit, and Andrew Ashong.

✨✧ Human LeagueAnthology – A Very British Synthesizer Group ... CD
Virgin, Late 70s/1980s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Way more than just another anthology – as this 2CD collection features a great range of sounds from these legendary synth pop legends – plus some rare mixes and unusual versions too! The collection definitely includes those early 80s singles that made Human League so great – but there's also some of their weird early analogue electronics, too – plus some later tracks that are surprisingly great, and which appear here on CD format for the first time ever – really rounding out the 30 track package in a great way! Titles include "The Dignity Of Labour (part 3)", "Empire State Human", "Fascination (ext version)", "Lebanon (single)", "Hello Louise (DJ edit)", "Sound Of The Crowd (inst)", "Hard Times", "Nightclubbing", "Boys & Girls", "Night People (radio edit)", "Heart Like A Wheel (William Orbit rmx)", "Life On Your Own", "Human (ext version)", "I Need Your Loving (DJ edit)", "Filling Up With Heaven", "Live Is All That Matters (edit)", "Never Let Me Go", "Sky (radio edit)", "Night People (radio)", "Mirror Man", "You Remind Me Of Gold", "Open Your Heart", and of course, "Don't You Want Me".

DJ CamMad Blunted Jazz ... CD
Shadow, 1996. Used 2CD ... $4.99
Heavy beats and funky grooves from DJ Cam – recorded back in his more formative years, when his sound was rougher, and more "in the crates"! The album's got a great mix of open-ended samples and jazzy instrumentation – sounding almost like early Greyboy work, but without as much of the jazz solos. Disc 1 features the album Underground Vibes – an instant classic that's been out of print for years – and disc 2 features a live set from 1995. Titles include "Return Of The Jedi", "Sang Lien", "Underground Vibes", "Gangsta Sh*t", "Suckers Never Play That", "Meera", "Lost Kingdom", and "London 1995". CD
(Out of print special silk-screened edition.)

Joe PassFor Django ... CD
Pacific Jazz/BGO (UK), 1964. Used ... $6.99
An album dedicated to the great Django Reinhardt – but one that also comes across with plenty of west coast touches! The format is somewhat Django-esque – with lead guitar work from Joe Pass, plus rhythm guitar support from John Pisano – creating some of the guitar interplay you'd have in a gypsy swing record – but the groove's also a bit more modern than some of Django's classics, and there's a lighter, breezier approach here that's very much in the mode of other Pass records from the 60s – at least the small group ones! Tracks include "Django", "For Django", "Fluer D'Ennui", "Django's Castle", and "Nuages". CD

Gil EvansComplete Pacific Jazz Sessions (New Bottle Old Wine/Great Jazz Standards) ... CD
Pacific Jazz, 1958/1959. Used ... $7.99
2 wonderful late 50s sessions from arranger Gil Evans – both of which we'd rank right up there with his best work with Miles Davis, or the albums under his own name for Impulse in the 60s! The first half of the CD is from the album New Bottle Old Wine – a record of swinging modern backdrops, used to showcase both the solo talents of a young Cannonball Adderley, and the dynamic energy of Evans himself! Cannon's sharp-edged early tone is a really great sound for the record – far more modern than you might expect from later funk and soul sides of the 60s – and perfectly poised next to Gil's larger back drops to reignite a host of older tunes with new energy! And while the titles are familiar, the readings certainly are not – as the Evans pen has really changed things up beautifully – as you'll hear on numbers that include "St Louis Blues", "King Porter Stomp", "Willow Tree", "Struttin' With Some Barbeque", "Lester Leaps In", "Round About Midnight", "Manteca", and "Bird Feathers". Great Jazz Standards is equally great, a fantastic lost set from Evans – and one that features Mingus trumpeter Johnny Coles as the lead soloist in front of Evans-led modern groups that include players like Elvin Jones, Ray Crawford, Steve Lacy, Budd Johnson, Rod Levitt, and Chuck Wayne. Despite the "standards" in the title, most of these numbers are modern tunes from the 50s – like "Joy Spring", "Ballad Of The Sad Young Men", "Django", "Straight No Chaser", and "Chant Of The Weed" – all given Evans' unique style of arrangement, tweaked up a few notches to give them a really edgey quality. Coles is clearly standing in for Miles here, but the format works well overall! CD features 15 tracks in all, including some newly-improved versions of a few tracks, correcting mistakes in the original records! CD

VariousGary Crowley's Punk & New Wave – Rare Punk Gems & New Wave Nuggets 1977 to 1982 (3CD set) ... CD
Edsel (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3CD ... $29.99
A fantastic collection of rare punk nuggets from the glory days of the UK scene – put together by DJ Gary Crowley, who runs a specialist show on British radio – and served up here in a book-style package that's overflowing with detailed notes, images of the original singles, and other information as well! The collection goes way way past the usual "punk classics" package – partly because Crowley's knowledge of the music and record collection is so enormous – and partly because he's got a nicely expansive view of the generation, one that's open to all the amazing styles that were exploding at the time! Make no mistake, the music here is all punk – no post-punk, Brit pop, or experimental tracks – and the whole thing's a searing 77-track romp, with titles that include "Inside Out" by The Stiffs, "Charles" by The Skids, "Howard Hughes" by The Tights, "Start Again" by The Form, "Everyday Everyday" by Really 3rds, "Wild Dub" by Generation X, "She's Too Clever For Me" by TPI, "You Gotta Know Girl" by Bee Bee Cee, "All About You" by Scars, "When The Tanks Roll Over Poland Again" by Automatics, "Young Savage" by Ultravox, "Getting Nowhere Fast" by Girls At Our Best, "Soldier Soldier" by Spizzenergi, "Go Ahead" by Bobalouis, "Barbarellas" by The Photos, "Kids Just Wanna Dance" by Fast Cars, "This Is Your Life" by Glaxo Babies, "It's The New Thing" by The Fall, "I Hate School" by Suburban Studs, and lots lots more!

✨✧ VariousHarmony Of The Soul – Vocal Groups 1962 to 1977 ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An incredible collection based around one of our favorite styles of soul music ever – the smooth, mellow male group soul approach that flourished strongly in the late 60s and early 70s – as kind of a more mature, sophisticated take on earlier doo wop modes! Like the previous format, the approach here is very heavy on vocal interplay – but never in a mode that's too overdone, nor filled with tricks and turns – and which instead has the quartet or quintet voices coming together in these completely sublime ways – gliding, stepping, and mellow-grooving along – in an assortment of tracks that are all pretty darn rare, and which includes nine tracks that appear here for the first time ever! The sound quality is wonderful, and the notes are very detailed – and the whole thing's way better than any sort of dodgy package that group soul collectors usually have to settle for – done in the same approach as the In Perfect Harmony series on Kent. Titles include "For The Rest Of My Days" by The Pretenders, "Why Can't It Be" by The Windjammers, "Girl Girl Girl" by The Determinations, "I Destroyed Your Love (part 1)" by Special Delivery, "Send My Baby Back" by San Francisco TKOs, "Where Or When" by The Superbs, "Shady Lady" by Choice Of Colors, "Whatcha Gonna Do Baby" by The Lovers, "Let Me Take Care Of Your Heart" by The Smith Brothers, "Without A Word" by The MMs & The Peanuts, and "Crying Bitter Tears" by The Steelers.
