Force & Form (UK), 1984. Very Good+ ... $79.99

Tracks include "Ubu Noir", "Panic", "At The Heart Of It All", "Tenderness Of Wolves", "Spoiler", "Clap", "Solar Lodge", "The Sewage Worker's Birthday Party", "Godhead Deathead", and "Cathedral In Flames".

✨✧ George Coleman & Tete MontoliuMeditation ... LP
Timeless, 1977. Near Mint- ... $3.99
A stunning setting for this wonderful tenorist – a record that has the great George Coleman blowing with only the piano of Tete Montoliu for accompaniment – with really wonderful results! George has all that full, deep tone we know from his bigger group recordings – and it really seems to set the record on fire from the start, and bring out these bold rhythmic lines from Montoliu, who plays with a blocky sense of power that reminds us of his sublime late 60s album for MPS! There's still plenty of the lyrical moments you'd expect from Tete, too – but even then, George comes in with these freewheeling passages that are really lovely – and which bloom brilliantly in the presence of the piano. Titles include long takes on "Meditation" and "Sophisticated Lady" – plus "Walsing At Rosa's Place", "Lisa", and "First Time Down". LP, Vinyl record album

ColosseumColosseum Live (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner/Esoteric (UK), 1971. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99
Maybe the best album ever from this seminal British jazz rock combo – a record that really has the group stretching out in the expanded space of a concert setting! Colosseum were already one of the best groups to mix jazzy currents and heavy rock modes – but they really set a fire with this brilliant live album – which really gave the group plenty of room to show off their instrumental chops! Immediate Records star Chris Farlowe is on vocals – but the real charm of their sound comes from the tenor and soprano sax work of Dick Heckstall Smith, the Hammond and vibes of Dave Greenslade, and the heavy drums of Jon Hiseman – who really keeps things in the pockage, and provided more than a few funky passages on the album. Titles include "Lost Angeles", "Rope Ladder to The Moon", "Walking In The Park", and a version of Michael Gibbs' "Tanglewood 63". 2CD version features 5 great liev tracks recorded at the same time, but never issued – including a brilliant long take on the group's classic "Valentyne Suite", plus "Skellington", "Stormy Monday Blues", and "I Can't Live Without You/Time Machine/Time Machine Demands A Sacrifice".

Roberto Conrado/Antonio Scuderi/Piero MontanariBass Modulations (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Flipper/Spettro (Italy), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
A trio of sound library artists, all coming together to make one mighty groovy album – a set that's a bit jazzy overall, and filled with lots of funky touches as well! There's an excellent acoustic bassist on a number of tracks – grounding the music with a nicely deep tone, and even bowing his instrument at a few points – and the drummer and keyboardist are pretty great too! There's a flute player who steps into the mix at a few points – but most of the energy seems to come from the core trio, working together in ways that are nicely varied, and different than familiar small combo jazz. The whole thing reminds us of the 70s sound library work by Cabildos – and titles include "Zoo Sound", "Way On", "Puzzle", "Quit Hold", "Overtime", "Pledge", "Lay Out", "Dipper", and "Coagulations". LP, Vinyl record album
(Hand-numbered limited edition of 500!)

✨✧ Nicola ConteJet Sounds (full LP) ... LP
Schema/Fez (Italy), 2000. New Copy 2LP ... $24.99
Wonderful wonderful wonderful – and one of the best albums we've ever heard of modern bossa and soundtrack grooves! For years, Nicola Conte has been a seminal force in the new Italian scene – working as a DJ, promoter, producer, and sometimes recording artist under the odd 12" single. This album marks his first full effort – and after years of bubbling under in the Italian scene, Nicola emerges as one of the most perfect-formed artists we've heard in years. The whole album's a breathtaking mix of 60s bossa, soundtrack, and easy themes – put together with never a dull moment, and always a focus on the kind of mid and uptempo grooves that have been pushing the Italian and German scenes for the last 5 years. The record features great mixes from a few of Nicola's 12" singles, plus a wealth of excellent new material that really expands his groove wonderfully – with a totally real, totally honest sound that pushes past the gazillion retro remix throwaway albums that you'll find stuffing the listening stations at the megastores! Tracks include "Il Cerchio Rosso", "Dossier Omega", "Trappola Mortale", "Jazz Pour Dadine", and "Bossa Per Due". LP, Vinyl record album

Ivan ContiAzul (Max Graef rmx, Glenn Astro rmx, Contours rmx) ... 12-inch
Far Out (UK), 2017. New Copy ... $11.99
A trio of remixes – all of which take this jazzy Brazilian tune in a very different direction! First up is Max Graef, who's really deconstructed the track – and has the keyboards kind of shining in the skies, while the bassline gets all muddy and earthy! Glenn Astro lives up to his name, by bringing the keyboards up even more, and letting them bristle with a space age vibe – and Contours bring more of a cosmic, almost 4Hero sort of groove to the tune! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Joyce CoolingCameo ... LP
Nucleus, 1988. Near Mint- ... $249.99
A breezy jazz vocal classic from the San Francisco scene of the 80s! Joyce Cooling plays guitar in a mellow jazzy way – a bit influenced by Brazilian fusion, and a bit by the CTI/Kudu styles of the mid 70s – warm and soulful, with a flowing, glowing kind of style that actually even reminds us a bit of Brazilian singer Joyce during the same period. And although Cooling's sounded a bit smooth in recent years, this album's got a nicely indie feel – a stripped-down set of grooves that's held up wonderfully over the years – and which still may be the best thing she ever recorded! Other instrumentation includes keyboards and lots of percussion – and titles include "It's You", "Ve", "The Way Out", "It's On You", and "It's Time I Do". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing!)

✨✧ Alice CooperLove It To Death ... LP
Straight/Warner, 1971. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $11.99
The third album from Alice Cooper and perhaps the first great one – starting the 70s sleaze show win streak with the massive "I'm Eighteen" and an LP full of great, gritty and grimy rock and roll. Bob Ezrin's producing for the first time, and if the songs and the whole show isn't yet as menacingly theatrical as it would get to be in the following couple of years, the angry anthemic vibe is here and it's heavy! Other tracks include "Caught In A Dream", "Hallowed Be My Name", "Black Juju", "Is It My Body", "Second Coming", "Ballad Of Dwight Fry" and "Sun Arise". LP, Vinyl record album
(Green label pressing in the ammended cover.)

CormegaTrue Meaning (clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
Aura/Legal Hustle, 2002. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
Solid post-millennium effort from Cormega – with allstar production by Buckwild, Large Pro, Alchemist and Hi Tek! Sharp stuff that sounded to us at the time like it was built to stand the test of time, and sure enough, it's rock solid after all these years. Raw, straight-foward independent hip hop at it's finest, with some pretty diverse beats given the pedigree of the roster of producers listed above, all the better to showcase how versatile Cormega's no BS mic style is. "Verbal Graffiti", "Ain't Gone Change", "The Legacy", "The Come Up", "Souol Food", "Endangered Species" and "Therapy". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition 15 anniversary pressing on clear vinyl!)

Roxy CossFuture Is Female ... CD
Posi tone, 2018. New Copy ... $11.99 15.99
Roxy Coss's second album as a leader for the Posi-Tone label – and it's her strongest to date, both by design and in performance! Where her Chasing The Unicorn album set up a whimsical sensibility, this one obliviously sets up a tone of strength and determination – undercurrents of all her work we've heard thus far, but are front-and-center thematically here. The titles are strident and topical, while the sound is timeless, with some thematic touches – like the almost foreboding intro to "Mr. President" that leads into marching drums, or the slyly easygoing swing that starts "Feminist AF" leading to some of the most energetic soloing by Roxy on the whole set – but she never casts off the neo-classic jazz she's always had such a strong voice for. Recorded in a single day with her excellent band including Alex Wintz, Miki Yamanaka, Rick Rosato and Jimmy Macbride, titles include "Nevertheless, She Persisted", "Little Did She Know", "She Needed A Hero, So That's What She Became", "Females Are Strong As Hell", "#MeToo","Nasty Women Grab Back" and "Ode To A Generation".

✨✧ Country Joe & The FishElectric Music For The Mind & Body ... LP
Vanguard, 1967. Very Good ... $24.99
A seminal set from Country Joe & The Fish – one of those albums that brought the new psychedelic sound strongly into the mainstream – but all without softening up or commercializing it at all! There's still a very sharp edge to the record – mean organ lines, fuzzy guitar, and lots of cool production that makes the sounds weirder and more watery than before – even the vocals, which have this edge that nobody would ever refer to as Sunshine Pop! In a way, the whole set's as sinister as any of the most groundbreaking albums on Elektra from the time – and definitely shows that both Vanguard and the group were at the forefront of the new psych recording scene. Titles include "Not So Sweet Martha Lorraine", "Super Bird", "Death Sound", "Sad And Lonely Times", "The Masked Marauder", "Grace", and "Bass Strings". LP, Vinyl record album
(Gold label stereo pressing. Cover has some aging and worn corners.)

Stanley CowellMusa ... LP
Srata East/Everland (Austria), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... About April 5, 2018 (delayed)
A solo piano set from Strata East mainman Stanley Cowell – but a record that's got enough soul and spirituality to rival a full group recording! Although working alone here, Cowell's touch on the keys is astounding – often flowing and highly rhythmic, with a pulsating sense of energy that makes even the mellower tracks sparkle with soulful imagination. A number of tracks are intimate explorations of themes heard more famously on albums done with Charles Tolliver – but which come alive in a whole new way here in Stanley's solo setting! Most work here is on acoustic piano, but Cowell also picks up the electric keys for the tune "Travelin Man" – done here as an overdubbed "duet", and one of the hippest tunes on the entire record! Other titles include "Abscretions", "Equipoise", "Prayer For Peace", "Departure No 2", "Sweet Song", and "Emil Danenberg". LP, Vinyl record album

Randy CrawfordNaked & True (2CD version – with bonus track) ... CD
Blue Moon/Big Break (UK), 1995. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99
A later date from 70s soul legend Randy Crawford – cut overseas, at a time when she was initially without US representation – a situation that was immediately corrected with the strength of the album! The set has Randy really getting back to basics – mostly working with tight jazz funk backings that recall both her first few records, and her work with The Crusaders – a perfect setting for her wonderful voice, and her trademark use of jazzy currents with more straight-ahead soul! Players on the record include Fred Wesley on trombone, Bernie Worrell on keyboards, and Bootsy Collins on bass – which will give you an idea of the strength of the sound – and titles include "Cajun Moon", "Give Me The Night", "Glow Of Love", "I'll Be Around", "Forget Me Nots", "Joy Inside My Tears", "Purple Rain", and "Come Into My Life". Great 2CD version – features a bonus instrumental version of "The Glow Of Love" – plus 13 more different mixes of tracks from the album – including "Cajun Moon (long trip mix)", "Forget Me Nots (Femi Fem rotation mix)", "Give Me The Night (Mousse T's classic club mix)", "Forget Me Nots (Delaney's mix)", "I'll Be Around (surprise mix)", and "Cajun Moon (cajun trip club version)".

Pee Wee CraytonModern Legacy Vol 1 ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
A seminal moment in postwar blues – and some of the greatest records ever from the legendary Pee Wee Crayton! Crayton was as much of a force in R&B as he was in blues, and these sublime late 40s/early 50s recordings for the Modern label are the epitome of all that made both the Cali scene and the label so great at the time! Pee Wee plays guitar with a raw, electric vibe that belies his Texas roots – but the recordings often set him up in these cool, jazzy charts that push the music forward strongly – and which really seem to unlock some amazing currents in his voice. The music is hardly what would have been called blues a few short years before – and instead comes across in a mode that wraps together so many strands wonderfully, all to showcase the genius of the man in the lead! Titles include "Blues For My Baby", "Texas Hop", "Central Avenue Blues", "Please Come Back", "Change Your Way Of Lovin", "When Darkness Falls", "Black Gal", and "Bounce Pee Wee". CD

Joe CubaSteppin' Out ... LP
Seeco, Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Seminal early work from the legendary Joe Cuba – highly percussive Latin tracks, served up in a small combo mode that really helped pave the way for the Latin Soul generation! Joe's shaking off most of Latin tradition here – going for a tightly focused sound that features plenty of timbales and congas, and which also introduces a bit of English language to their repertoire – thanks to vocals by Jimmy Sabater on the track "To Be With You". Cheo Feliciano sings on a few other numbers, but a number of tracks are really cooking instrumentals! Titles include the great "Wabble Cha", plus "Oriente", "Callejero", "Salsa Y Bembe", "Cachondea", and "To Be With You", a big early hit for the group. LP, Vinyl record album

Cynara E CybeleCynara E Cybele ... LP
CBS (Brazil), 1969. Very Good+ ... $99.99
A sweet duet album – featuring Cynara & Cybele, two female singers who work together magically to craft a sound that reminds us a lot of the 60s work of Quarteto Em Cy – no surprise, since the gals were part of that group! The mode of the music is somewhere between bossa nova and the more spacious pop of the early 70s Blue Brazil generation – and the girls' voices drift lovelily together over arrangements by Luiz Eca and Dory Caymmi. Titles include "Joao Ninguem", "Ate Segunda Feira", "Carolina", "Fala Meu Amor", "Lua Nova", and "De Onde Vens". LP, Vinyl record album

Afous D'AfousTenere ... LP
Mississippi/Sahel Sounds, 2015. New Copy ... $16.99
Beautiful sounds from the Saharan scene – served up here by an Algerian combo with some wonderful guitar in the lead! The instrumentation is similar to some of their contemporaries, but also maybe crafted with a bit more tightness too – especially on numbers where the group's vocals rise together in a powerful, anthemic way – often then stepping aside for the guitar to really do its thing – with solos that are snakey and evocative, but always heading in the right direction too! Other instrumentation includes additional guitar, bass, djembe, and drums – and titles include "Dounya Hi", "Wiyad Hallen", "Tenere", "Nak Amahah", "Houlaghine Akalin", "Imarhanin", and "Arhegh Danagh".

Danser's Inferno (John Danser)Creation One ... LP
Lirs/Everland (Austria), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99
That's "Danser", not "dancer" – as in John Danser, who's also best known for a groovy jazz album under his own name! This sweet little set from the early 70s may well be John's best album ever – a wonderful blend of funky grooves and these wonderful raspy vocals – completely charming, and with a quality that's hard to describe, but really really great! There's a wickedly offbeat feel to the record that keeps us coming back – at some level the funky big band grooves of the MPS 70s generation, but mixed with a more sensitive independent American vibe too – especially given that some of the lyrics remind us a bit of Matthew Larkin Cassell. Danser plays tenor, and leads the group – the vocal cuts (about half the album's tracks) feature Randy Maddison singing. Titles include the classic "Sombre Guitar", plus "Inferno", "And Once My Love", "Badinage", "Time Is Laughing", "Sunday Morning", and "Turning The Corner". LP, Vinyl record album
