Czeslaw BartkowskiDrums Dream ... LP
Polskie Nagrania (Poland), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... About January 5, 2018 (delayed)
A drum-heavy set from Polish percussionist Czeslaw Bartkowski – mostly solo on most tracks, but with occasional accompaniment on trumpet, electric piano, and soprano sax on a few of the fuller numbers – plus some great funky big band arrangements at the end! The sound is often spare and moody, but also melodic – similar to some of Max Roach's solo percussion efforts – in that Bartkowski isn't too concerned with going too far out, or getting too free – just working drums and percussion within new modes in jazz! The last few tracks on the album flesh out the sound with fuller orchestrations from Jan Ptaszyn Wroblewski – in a way that's almost funky at times – and other players on the record include Tomasz Szukalski, Tomasz Stanko, and Adam Makowicz. Titles include "Drums Dream", "FAO", "Druga Swobodna Etiuda", "Rozmowa Ze Sliwka Bez Pestek", "Good Times Bad Times", and "Lullaby For Tiny Chinamen". LP, Vinyl record album

Os MutantesDivina Comedia Ou Ando Meio Desligado (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Polydor/Polysom (Brazil), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
The third album from the legendary Os Mutantes – part of the essential trio of sides released during the Tropicalia years! The record's got a sound that's tighter and a bit more straightforward than their previous efforts – stricter song formats, and styles that lean heavily on rockish guitars and organ. But as the odd cover images on the front and back will attest, the band is still in a very creatively arty mode here – still working strongly with arranger Rogerio Duprat, in a wash of sounds and moods that fold contemporary music back upon itself with plenty of odd twists, turns, and surprises! Titles include "Desculpe Babe", "Oh Mulher Infiel", "Quem Tem Medo De Brincar De Amor", "Hey Boy", "Haleluia", "Ave, Lucifer", and "Meu Refrigerador Nao Funciona". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Leslie Odom JrSimply Christmas ... LP
S Curve, 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A beautifully intimate Christmas album from Leslie Odom Jr – a singer most folks know from his work onstage in Hamilton, but a hell of a jazz vocalist too! The album has Leslie mostly working in a small group setting – serving up great takes of Holiday favorites, with a warmth that really befits the season – in a great updating of the sort of old school jazz Christmas albums we've loved from artists like Ella Fitzgerald or Tony Bennett. Titles include "My Favorite Things", "The First Noel", "I'll Be Home For Christmas", "Winter Song", "Merry Christmas Darling", and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Elvis PresleyBoy From Tupelo – The Sun Masters (with download) ... LP
RCA/Legacy, Early 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A treasure trove of early Elvis recordings – a set the goes deeper into the nascent, pre-pop culture mania, and right into the heart and soul of "A Boy From Tupelo" who really had the voice and charisma of a king – mania, hype and a half century of merchandising be damned! The Sun Masters includes all the Sun master takes from this pivotal early 50s period on LP for the first time ever – with "That's All Right" and "Blue Moon Of Kentucky" (both 45 RPM master takes), "Good Rockin' Tonight", "Milkcow Blues Boogie", "Baby Let's Play House", "Mystery Train", "Just Because", "Tomorrow Night", "Trin' To Get To YoU", "I Forgot To Remember To Forget", "Hnarbor Lights", "You're A Heartbreaker" and more. 17 in all.

✨✧ Leslie SmithHeartache ... LP
Elektra, 1982. Used ... Out Of Stock
From the look of the cover, and Leslie's silly expression on the front, this album should be a bad one – but it ends up being a surprisingly great batch of well-produced modern soul tunes. The record's one of a few great ones that Elektra snuck onto the market during the early 80s – and it's not that dissimilar from the more famous Elektra sides by Leon Ware. Leslie's got a voice that really works well for mellow and midtempo smooth soul numbers – and there's plenty of those on the album, all handled with a strong degree of class. Titles include "I'm On The Outside Looking In", "Don't Shut The Door", "Before The Night Is Over", "If You're In Love", "Do You Still Remember Me", and "Nothin' You Can Do About It".

✨✧ VariousRastafari – The Dreads Enter Babylon 1955 to 1983 (with download) ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), 1950s/1960s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Way way more than just the usual roots reggae collection – a stunning set that documents the growth of Rastafari ideals in Jamaican music – with examples that range from years before the birth of reggae, through that style's bit growth in the 70s! The set includes this very large booklet of notes and images – giving plenty of historical context for the spiritual movement, and linking it's roots to Ethiopian political freedoms of the early 20th century, which then became a huge inspiration for oppressed Jamaicans. Styles of the music vary nicely – and include pre-reggae styles, mento, and other folkloric modes – which then give way to more familiar sounds, but always with an ear for the unique, and spiritually powerful. Titles include "Zion I" by Winston & Ansell, "Ethiopia" by Lord Lebby & The Jamaican Calypsonians, "Soul Drums" by Count Ossie & Leslie Butler, "His Imperial Majesty" by Rod Taylor, "Jah Will Cut You Down" by Earth & Stone, "Haile Selassie" by Laurel Aitken, "None Shall Escape The Judgement" by Johnny Clark, "African Drums" by Bongo Herman & Jah Lloyd, "Hail The Words Of Jah" by Ashanti Roy, "Salaam" by Bongo Herman, Les & Bunny, "Narration" by Count Ossie & The Mystic Revelation Of Rastafari, and "Rasta Dreadlocks" by The Heaven Singers.

Kali BahluKali Bahlu Takes The Forest Children On A Journey Of Cosmic Remembrance ... LP
World Pacific/Merlins Nose (Germany), 1967. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $16.99
A weird set of sitar and bongos backed sing-speak about gurus, devil gods, leprechauns, elves, opium, the wind, hippie boys and other oddball psychedelia enhanced storytelling from Kali,The Gypsy Star Child! We don't know a thing about Kali – she has a cute, girly-girl, Anytown, USA voice, but the hippie fantasy, pseudo spiritual storytelling is weird, yet genuinely committed – with droning, Eastern-tinged psych backdrops. Includes "A Game Called Who Am I", "Cosmic Remembrance", "A Cosmic Telephone Call", "From The Angel Liesle & The Buddha" and "How Can I Tell My Guru?" LP, Vinyl record album

Book Of IntxitxuBook Of Intxitxu ... LP
Wah Wah (Spain), Late 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $28.99
A mighty weird project, and one that's presented here in a very beautiful package – a 2LP set that also features a big inside booklet – with writings and images from the Book Of Intxixu that inspired the recordings! The project was spearheaded by Juan Arkotxa, who sings and plays flute and sitar – with singer Carmen Mansilla, and percussionist Leslie MacKenzie – alongside help from some guest artists who include Daevid Allen and Gilli Smyth of Gong! There's a very trippy vibe to the record – a bit like Gong in that mode, but more spiritual overall – given that the book and songs are based on Basque and Celtic mythology, in ways that are strongly illustrated in the book. Maybe a bit hippy-dippy, but with lots of folk/psych appeal – on titles that include "Dream Vision", "Start Here", "Awakening The Organic Imagination", "The Old Man", "Crossing The Great Waters", "The Pass Through The Set Of Squares", "The Cromlech", and "Come Join The Mountain Mushroom".

Brides Of FunkensteinNever Buy Texas From A Cowboy ... LP
Atlantic, 1979. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A tremendously soulful session from the late 70s P-Funk empire – sung by a group who were George Clinton's answer to Three Degrees, First Choice, and other female club trios of the time! The sound here is hardly as disco as those other groups, though – and there's plenty of funky Clinton touches in the mix – including rumbling basslines, raspy guitars, and a tightly focused groove that has the singers Dawn Silva, Sheila Horn, and Jeanette McGruder working equally with the larger group of musicians on the record. Production is by Bootsy Collins and Clinton, with horn arrangements by Fred Wesley – which makes for some great Horny Horns funk touches on most tracks! The title cut – "Never Buy Texas From A Cowboy" – runs on as a long P-Funk groove for about 15 minutes, but other tracks are shorter, and titles include "I'm Holding You Responsible", "Smoke Signals", "Party Up In Here", and "Didn't Mean To Fall In Love".

✨✧ James BrownEverybody's Doin' The Hustle & Dead On The Double Bump ... LP
Polydor, 1975. Very Good- ... $9.99
Forget the "hustle" and "bump" in the title – as the set's not a disco cash-in set by the Godfather – and instead is an overlooked funky gem from the 70s! The set still follows strongly in the best modes of the early 70s – with that sharp JB-styled groove underneath – and in a way, the record's bit like Breaking Bread was to that group's great run – maybe a bit more focused, and slightly more upbeat – but still with a righteous approach to funk overall! David Matthews conducts, and players include Fred Wesley on trombone, Maceo Parker on alto, St Clair Pickney on tenor, and both Charles Sherrell and Leon Pendarvis on clavinet – and a few tracks are remakes of older numbers, nestled next to some newer gems. The set features the standout funky cuts "Your Love", which has a great break at the beginning, and "Superbad Superslick" – and other titles include "Hustle", "Turn On The Heat & Build Some Fire", "Calm & Cool", and a remake of "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag".

James BrownReality ... LP
Polydor, 1975. Very Good- ... $8.99
One of the last great albums from James Brown! Not as totally sublime as Payback or some of the others from the 70s – but James is still working here with Fred Wesley and Dave Matthews – and many of the cuts retain the funk of a few years past. Case in point is the sublime "Funky President" – a super-dope track that mixes politics and funk, and which is one of our favorite James Brown tracks from the 70s. Other cuts include "All For One", "Check Your Body", "Reality", and "Further Up The Road". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has moderate wear, with splitting seams & old tape.)

✨✧ Erasmo CarlosSonhos E Memorias 1941 to 1972 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Polydor/Light In The Attic, 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $21.99 23.98
A record filled with cover images that run from Richard Nixon to Elvis Presley, to Mick Jagger, Caetano Veloso, Chairman Mao, Jorge Ben, Jimi Hendrix, and Andy Warhol – and a set whose sound definitely seems to live up to such heady company from the 20th century! Erasmo Carlos is at his inventive best here – very playfully creative, yet in a way that refines his style from his trippier years – almost a reinvention of the singer's approach for a new generation of MPB – in a manner that some of the Tropicalia artists were doing at the time. The songwriting and production are great – and if the album were in English, it may well have been a global hit (although it did pretty well at home back in Brazil!) – and titles include "Mane Joao", "Largo Da Segunda Feira", "Sabado Morto", "E Proibido Fumar", "Preciso Encontrar Um Amigo", and "Mundo Cao". LP, Vinyl record album
Also available Sonhos E Memorias 1941 to 1972 ... CD 13.99
