Tyrone DavisTurning Point! ... CD
Dakar/Brunswick, 1975. New Copy ... $4.99 10.98
One of Tyrone Davis' last albums for Dakar – and a great one too – issued in 1976 before the demise of that label, and Tyrone's big move to Columbia Records! Tyrone's still working strongly here in that great Chicago mix of smooth and rough – a sound first forged on his early Dakar hits, and carried through strongly here by arrangers Tom Tom and James Mack – who still keep a lot of the indie elements that made Davis' music for Dakar great right from the start. The centerpiece of the album is the title track "Turning Point", and it's situated in a set of other nice tunes, a number of which have that smoothed-out feel that Tyrone brought to his work in the late 70s. Includes a remake of "Turn Back The Hands Of Time" (done at a nice ballad tempo), plus "It's So Good (To Be Home With You)", "Saving My Love For You", and "I Can't Bump" (parts 1 & 2). CD
(Barcode has a cutout hole.)

dCprGFranz Kafka's South America (CD & DVD) ... CD
Voodoo/Sony (Japan), 2015. New Copy CD & DVD ... $19.99
A record that's every bit as compelling as its title – an unusual hybrid of jazz elements, electronics, and some offbeat production – all served up in a blend that reminds us of some of the most adventurous work from the late 80s New York scene – like some of the early groups who helped get the Knitting Factory started! The lineup features two keyboardists, two drummers, two saxophonists, and guitar, bass, and trumpet – but even these core elements are used in very unusual ways – so that the instrumentation usually criss-crosses in angular passages that are sometimes determined by the quirky rhythms of the tracks, sometimes moving much more of their own volition. There's also a bit of recitation and acoustic percussion on the set – which almost gives the whole thing an early American Clave vibe at times too – and titles include "Ronald Regan", "Verse 1", "Junta", "Gondwana Express", and "Immigrant's Animation". Comes with a bonus DVD – featuring a live performance by the group! CD

DeathFor The Whole World To See ... LP
Drag City, 1975. New Copy ... $16.99 18.98
A pre-punk bit of charged, hard grooving Motor City rock from Death – a lost record that takes a tightly coiled, blazing approach to their influences of garage rock and psychedelia – and a record that's all the better in that it was recorded way back in 1975! To put it bluntly, music didn't really sound like this in '75 – and it would be as easy to label the sound as something like, "mid 70s Detroit African American precursor to Husker Du", etc, but this is a honestly a pretty remarkable album for its time that we don't want to trivialize it with a lazy nutshell description. The group does distill their influences in a way that's reminiscent of some midwestern post punk, but Death is pre-punk, making it a really fascinating record, and a blast to crank up in your headphones! Titles include "Keep On Knocking", "Rock-N-Roll Victim", the longer, seemingly Arthur Lee influenced "Let The World Turn" (eventually nailing a fiercer sound the likes of which Love never messed with), "You're A Prisoner", "Freakin Out", "Where Do We Go From Here???" and "Politicians In My Eyes". 7 songs, 27 minutes, and pretty awesome.

Deep PurpleFireball (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Warner, 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
A definite fireball from the legendary early lineup of Deep Purple – a record that has the group soaring to the skies in a blazing blend of guitars, keyboards, bass, and drums! A set like this is seminal for understanding just how far rock music stepped in just a few short years – because back in the mid 60s, these guys might have been slavishly laying out blues riffs, or trying to copy their American heroes – but those roots are completely subsumed in the band's own style, and delivered with a dexterity that's truly amazing – a brash, balls-out quality that should be given everything it's trying to claim – because a record like this doesn't need to answer to anyone! Titles include "Fireball", "No No No", "Anyone's Daughter", "Demon's Eye", "The Mule", and "No One Came". LP, Vinyl record album
(Beautiful pressing – textured cover, heavy vinyl, and bonus insert!)

Sam DeesHeritage Of A Black Man ... CD
Kent (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Killer soul from the 70s! Sam Dees was one of the decade's greatest unsung talents – and his work as a writer and arranger has appeared on countless recordings from the time, even though he himself didn't cut many under his own name. As part of his creative process, though, he would often cut very professional private recordings to work out his songs and his musical ideas – and nearly all of those recordings had a quality that was as good (or better) than most of the soul material that was being issued to the commercial market at the time. This great 22 track CD (a follow-up to Kent's other set of Dees' demos) brings together some of Dees' best private recordings, and the set's filled with some of the best 70's soul tracks we've heard in ages! Titles include "Why Must I Live In Chains", "Black Tattler", "Meet Me Half Way", "Where Is The Love", "Only Lonely People", "Just As Soon As The Feeling's Over", and "Lovers Or Enemies". Highly recommended! CD

DegoMore Things Stay The Same ... CD
2000 Black/BBQ (Japan), 2016. New Copy ... $28.99
Brilliant work from Dego – a rich continuation of the 4Hero groove, but set to styles that are very much Dego's own! The vibe here follows nicely from some of his well-circulated mixes from a few years back – but Dego's directing all the music himself in this flurry of skittish beats and cosmic keyboards – the latter of which are played wonderfully by Kaidi Tatham! In fact, the album's got some of the spiritual currents that we love in Kaidi's music – although the overall focus is definitely more in the 4Hero mode, especially when vocals from Sharlene Hector come into the mix, and really set the tunes home. Titles include "Shine A Light", "It Don't Get No Better", "Greed & Power", "Help Me Out", "We've Been Here Before", "Feminist Meetings", and "The Middle Ground". CD

Desmond Dekker & The AcesIsraelites (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Trojan (UK), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
A landmark album from Desmond Dekker – and a seminal slide of Jamaican music that really broke big on the global scene in the years before reggae! The set's a bit ska, a bit rocksteady, and completely sold all the way through – thanks to near-perfect production from Leslie Kong, who has a way of letting the basslines bubble in a pre-dub way – while Desmond's high-reaching vocals really take off over the top! The blend of sounds is completely wonderful – with a richness that makes the whole album as fantastic as the classic title track – and which has us wondering why Dekker never hit these heights again. Titles include "Israelites", "For Once In My Live", "Tips Of My Fingers", "Intensified", "It Is Not Easy", "Too Much Too Soon", "Rude Boy Train", and "Nincompoop". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Del The Funky HomosapienFunk 'Em (clean, A-plus rmx, inst, acapella)/Going Off/Make Me Feel ... 12-inch
Hiero Imperium, 2004. Very Good+ (pic cover)... $3.99
Del The Funky Homosapien returns with a teaser for his 11th Hour LP, his way-too-long delayed follow up to Both Sides Of The Brain, and his platinum-selling cameo with the Gorillaz! "Funk 'Em" is a back-to-basics blow off of any haters, with a catchy synth hook and sputtering beats, self-produced by Del. The A-plus remix is has a darker edge, which we may actually prefer to the main track. The two tracks on the flip are just as strong, with Del leisurely laying his trademark rubberband delivery over some staid, solid beats that bounce along in service of the rhymes – which is the way it should be with a such a celebrated rhymer! 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Delaney & Bonnie & FriendsTo Bonnie From Delaney ... CD
Atco/Wounded Bird, 1970. New Copy ... $10.99 11.99
Delaney and Bonnie Bramlett certainly have some heavy friends here – a stunning host of guest help on the record, who make the whole thing come together with a sweet blend of southern rock and soul! The duo were always almost more of a soul act than a rock one, and that quality really shows through here – as they tear it up with help from The Memphis Horns, plus Duane Allman on slide guitar, Bobby Whitlock on organ, Charlie Freeman on guitar, and even a bit of guest help from King Curtis on tenor and Little Richard on piano! Tunes include some great originals that show why the Bramlett's were the premier roots rock act of the time – mixed with a few nicely-chosen cuts by other folks – in a lineup that includes "Lay Down My Burden", "God Knows I Love You", "Hard Luck & Troubles", "Soul Shake", "Miss Ann", "Living On The Open Road", "Free The People", "The Love Of My Man", and "Living On The Open Road".

Eumir Deodato, Tom Jobim, & OthersBossa Nova – Original Soundtrack ... CD
Polygram (Brazil), 2000. Used ... $4.99
Kind of a painful movie, but a pretty sweet soundtrack! The set features a number of new works produced by Deodato, very much in the spirit of his Inutil Paisagem 60s bossa recordings – with wonderfully complex airy melodies, and a touch so light you can't believe there's actually a conscious act behind the music. The new titles feature vocals by Barbara Mendes and Carol Rogers – and include "Samba De Uma Nota So", "Mary Ann's Theme", "Suddenly", "Soul Mates", "Amor Em Paz", and "Juan's Theme". Most of the rest of the CD features older work from Jobim's years at Verve and CTI – including the tracks "Wave", "Aguas De Marco", "Chega De Saudade", and "Inutil Paisagem". Also features a semi-painful duet between Jobim and Sting – ouch! CD

Dieuf Dieul De ThiesAw Sa Yone Vol 2 (with bonus download) ... LP
Teranga Beat (Senegal), 1981. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99
Incredible sounds from an obscure Senegalese group – one who burned brightly at the start of the 80s, but never issued any records at the time! Fortunately, this collection (and its previous partner) corrects that fact – and mixes together rare studio sides and one very fierce nightclub show by the group – who work with a style that's completely their own, and which is great to finally hear after all these years! There's a strong sense of layering in the rhythms – almost waves of sound that overlap and move together quickly – sometimes with the Cuban currents that you'll hear in West African music of the 70s, but at other times a lot more unbridled – with the guitar almost acting at equal level with the bass and drums, but also soaring forth alongside the shifting vocals on the set. Papa Seck leads the group, and the package includes some great reminiscences from group members – who've reformed after 32 years, thanks to the attention given to Volume 1! All tracks are nice and long – most around the 10 minute mark – and titles include "Ariyo", "Am Sa Waye", "Raki", "Nianky", "Jirim", "Rumba Para Parejas", and "Sidy Nidiaye". LP, Vinyl record album
