Earth OperaComplete Elektra Recordings – Earth Opera/The Great American Eagle Tragedy ... CD
Elektra/Wounded Bird, 1968/1969. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99 18.99
Excellent work by a near-forgotten act that blossomed briefly at the end of the 60s folk-rock boom – the incredible Earth Opera, a group that tied together many styles into a rich and unique sound! Both the albums on this set came out of the crumbling Boston scene of the late 60s – showing echoes of that city's optimistic folk scene of the earlier part of the decade, sliding into the more introspective musings of the singer/songwriter era. The group was the brainchild of singer/guitarist Peter Rowan, but also featured quite a bit of support from a young David Grisman – playing here on mandolin, piano, and a bit of alto sax. The tracks are folksy, but with lots of jazzy undercurrents – almost in a Tim Buckley mode at times, but with themes that are farther reaching, and often more political. The set brings together both of the group's albums for Elektra, plus two singles – and titles include "The Red Sox Are Winning", "As It Is Before", "Dreamless", "Home To You", "Sanctuary From The Law", "All Winter Long", and "Roast Beef Love".

Judy HenskeJudy Henske – The Elektra Albums (Judy Henske/High Flying Bird) ... CD
Elektra/Ace (UK), 1963/1964. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
A great two-fer – a pair of albums from the very cool Judy Henske – back to back on a single CD! First up is the self-titled Elektra debut from Judy Henske – an enigmatic 60s figure with a style that lie somewhere between jazz, blues, and folk! Given the mix, Henske was a perfect fit for the early sound of Elektra Records – who give her plenty of freedom here to really do her thing – not just singing, but also speaking in between songs, as part of the live setting of the record – with an approach that really hints at the pre-hippie qualities of her scene! Some of the dialogue is quite frank, very down to earth – and provides a wonderful contrast to the tighter, sharper approach of her vocals – especially when they're set up with jazzy backings from Onzy Matthews. Other tunes features a smaller group – with John Forsha on guitar, Jimmy Bond on bass, and John Ewing on trombone – on titles that include "Hooka Tooka", "Ballad Of Little Romy", "Low Down Alligator", "Salvation Army Song", "Love Henry", and "Lilly Langtree". High Flying Bird features ultra-cool work from Judy Henske – a singer who's not quite folk, not quite jazz, and whose groundbreaking style here provides a strong platform for styles and generations to come! At this point, Judy's almost in territory that's like the Jim Kweskin/Maria Muldaur side of the universe – a very conscious blend of roots and blues, jazz and folk – but with a style that's even hipper than that other pair, and this edge that shows that Judy, at least, is really ready for the flower power generation to happen – and is trying to do her best here with using an earlier aesthetic to get things going. Backing is by a small group with Jack Marshall on guitar and John Forsha on twelve-string guitar – on titles that include "Charlotte Town", "Buckeye Jim", "High Flying Bird", "Columbus Stockade", "Baltimore Oriole", "Lonely Train", and "God Bless The Child".

✨✧ Donald Byrd & 125th StreetLove Has Come Around – The Elektra Anthology 1978 to 1982 ... CD
Elektra/Big Break (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great chapter in the career of trumpeter Donald Byrd – his post-Blue Note work with the group 125th Street NYC – which is kind of a second chapter to the jazzy fusion style he developed at the start of the 70s! This time around, there's an equal emphasis on soul and jazz – often with some strong vocals in the lead, but also plenty of room for Donald to stretch out and serve up the kind of perfect solos he worked out with the Mizell Brothers in the years before – modes that are continued here with some great guest help from singers and musicians who include Syreeta, Isaac Hayes, Jim Gilstrap, Wah Wah Watson, and Greg Phillinganes! If you like Donald Byrd albums like Places & Spaces or Stepping Into Tomorrow, you'll find that the sound here is a continuation of that mode – taken into the leaner funk territory that would come to play in the 80s. 2CD set features almost all the best tracks from those years, including some single mixes too – and titles include "Thank You For Funking Up My Life (12" disco version)", "Marilyn", "Butterfly", "Gold The Moon White The Sun", "Sexy Dancer", "Love Has Come Around", "Loving You", "Love For Sale", "Star Trippin", "I Love You", "Midnight", "Your Love Is My Ecstasy", "Have You Heard The News", "People Suppose To Be Free", "Morning", "I'm Coming Home", "Sunning In Your Love Shine", "Everyday", "Falling", "So Much In Love", and "Forbidden Love".

✨✧ Stalk Forrest GroupSt Cecelia – The Elektra Recordings ... CD
Elektra/Wounded Bird, Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A treasure trove of unreleased material from the Stalk Forrest Group – one full album, other bonus tracks, and their only ever single – all compiled together in a sweet set that documents the pre-history of Blue Oyster Cult! These guys aren't as sinister as in their BOC years, but definitely have a great way with a guitar line – spinning things out in a sweet, compressed mode that really brings a tightness to the tunes – yet still respects some of the rootsier undercurrents. Vocals have a bit more twang than later, but in a catchy late 60s way – and the original songs on the album – mostly by Richard Meltzer and Allen Lanier – are all pretty great. Titles include "What Is Quicksand", "Gil Blanco County", "Donovan's Monkey", "Ragamuffin Dumplin", "St Cecilia", "Arthur Comics", and "Curse Of The Hidden Mirrors" – plus some demo and original versions too, some from the time the group was named Oxaca.

Butterfield Blues BandButterfield Blues Band Live ... CD
Elektra/Wounded Bird, 1970. Used ... $12.99
A smoking live set from the Butterfield Blues Band – and like all the group's work, as much of a jazz and soul album as a blues one! Butterfield drew his inspiration from the Chicago bluesmen, it's true – but his style also has plenty of echoes of New Orleans soul, Memphis R&B, and other strands of American work – in a mode that's quite similar to some of the changes that were going on in the British beat group scene at the end of the 60s. The lineup here features some really nice touches on sax from Trevor Lawrence and Gene Dinwiddie – and the live setting only seems to loosen all the players up even more than usual, and let them hit a few nice funky moments. Titles include "Get Together Again", "Love Disease", "The Boxer", "No Amount Of Loving", "Driftin & Driftin", "Number Nine", and "Born Under A Bad Sign". CD

Deee-LiteWorld Clique (2CD expanded edition) ... CD
Elektra/Cherry Pop (UK), 1990. New Copy 2CD ... $11.99
There's never been a better bit of throwback dancefloor fodder ever! Sure, these guys were blaring out of every cheap radio at the time, and it was just about impossible to walk into a shopping mall without hearing "Groove Is In The Heart" for about 5 years after the album came out – but to us, that was a great thing, and the record represents one of the high points in pop music of the past couple decades. Thanks to some skillful sampling by Towa Tei, the group were grounded in a rich history of funk, house, disco, soul, and Brazilian influences – all of which they managed to blend with a postmodern perfection that other groups could only ever dream of! The big hits are certainly very familiar, but the whole album's a delight – and tracks include "Who Was That?", "Smile On", "Try Me On . . . I'm Very You", "World Clique", "ESP", and "Good Beat". This great expanded 2CD edition includes a full CD of remixes, too – 26 tracks in 2CDs! Given that the weird mixes and extrapolations of tunes by the group were such a big part of their larger sound, the extra material really helps get a full picture of the album's greatness! CD

Del Tha Funkee HomosapienI Wish My Brother George Was Here ... CD
Elektra/Traffic, 1991. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
The loopy West Coast classic! Heavily steeped in the P-Funk party vibe, Del's first LP is still a hip hop holy grail. Ice Cube's production is a nice snapshot of west coast hip hop circa '89, and Del's style is inimitable. Standouts Mistadobolina" and "Ahonetwo, Ahonetwo" are unimpeachable leftfield classics – but the whole record's great! Other titles include "What Is A Booty", "The Wacky World Of Rapid Transit", "P*ssin On Your Steps", "Money For Sex", "Dr. Bombay", "Sunny Meadowz", "Sleepin On My Couch", "Hoodz Come In Dozens", "Same Ol Thing", "Ya Lil' Crumbsnatchers", and more.. 2012 edition features extended packaging and foldout poster of the original cover art.

Chico FreemanTangents ... CD
Elektra/Wounded Bird, 1984. New Copy ... $3.99 11.98
Surprisingly dark music for a mid 80s major label jazz album – especially one that features guest work from Bobby McFerrin! Chico Freeman's definitely keeping true to his adventurous roots here – blowing some sharply angular lines on a range of reeds, and exploring both older jazz freedoms and some newer 80s experimental moments – all in a lineup with Mark Thompson on piano, Steve Coleman on alto and soprano sax, Jay Hoggard on vibes, Cecil McBee on bass, and Billy Hart on drums. Kenny Werner plays a bit of synth at times – in some dark-toned 80s modes – and although Bobby McFerrin is billed strongly on the cover, the album only seems to feature a bit of his vocalizations. Titles include "Sangoma & Nelly", "You Are The One", "Spook & Fade", "Tangents", "Ballad For Hakima", and "Sir Tashi & The Yeti". CD

Mort GarsonZodiac Cosmic Sounds ... CD
Elektra/El (UK), 1967. New Copy ... $11.99
The Zodiac never sounded so spooky – and the album's one of the first in a trend that explored astrology with funky musical backings! The music for the set was put together by moogy maestro Mort Garson – then making a transition from being a straight easy arranger in the early 60s, to more of a tripped-out pop-psychedelic artist of the latter part of the decade. Garson brings a nice funky undercurrent to the set – in a style that's similar to the work of David Axelrod, but which also uses a bit more electric instrumentation. Each track features a spoken bit on a Zodiac sign – written by Jacques Wilson, and spoken by Cyrus Faryar – and the album also features some nice moog work by Paul Beaver! Titles include "Aries", "Taurus", "Cancer", "Leo", and so on! (P.S.: The label says "Must Be Played In The Dark!") CD

Darwin's TheoryDarwin's Theory (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Lotus Land, 1978. Used ... $9.99
The first-ever release of this lost soul treasure – a rare session from a late 70s group from Tulsa, recording in LA at the studio of Sly Stone! The set's got a groove that's way more than you'd expect from any Oklahoma combo – a mature, modern soul sparkle that's totally great – almost the sort of vibe you'd find from some of the best groups of the time on labels like Elektra or Capitol, but handled here with a bit more indie charm overall! The tracks are all originals, and they balance out mellow steppers and tighter groovers nicely – which makes for an album that's amazingly deep in conception, and way more than just a slap-dash batch of tracks from the studio. We're sure that Sly would have been proud of the work here – and our hat's off to the folks at Lotus Land for finally getting this one released! Titles include "Funky Sounds", "Accept The Truth", "Keep On Smiling", "If You Dance Tonight", "I Love Everything About You", "On A Lovely Night Like This", "I Hope You'll Be". CD features 17 tracks in all – much more than the LP! CD

A very nice album cut by Gilberto Gil in the US in the late 70s – one that features production by Sergio Mendes, and sound that's a strong mix of jazz, soul, and Brazilian grooves! The record kind of fits in with the Elektra modern soul work at the time – a smooth blend of jazz and soul, with distinct Latin touches – and has backing by American and Brazilian jazz players that include Lee Ritenour, Don Grusin, Roberto Da Silva, Alex Acuna, and Oscar Castro Neves. The record's one of Gilberto's nicest from the era, and includes lots of lovely cuts, like a remake of "Maracatu Atomico", plus "Alapala", "Here & Now", "Balafon", "Nightingale", and "Samba De Los Angeles".

Voices Of East HarlemVoices Of East Harlem/Can You Feel It ... CD
Soul Brother (UK), 1973/1974. New Copy ... $14.99
A pair of wonderful records from this legendary soul group – back to back on a single CD! First up is the Voices Of East Harlem album – masterpiece of sweet group soul! This was the first secular record cut by The Voices Of East Harlem – a group who'd had an earlier gospel-tinged album on Elektra, but who are soaring out here in a brilliant mix of righteous mainstream soul styles – courtesy of the Curtom power team of Rich Tufo, Leroy Hutson, and Curtis Mayfield! The album's an unusual non-Curtom effort by the Hutson and Curtom – who collaborated in producing the record with Tufo, who himself did most of the arrangements with Hutson – in a mode that's wonderfully in the same spirit as Leroy's seminal work for Curtom in the mid 70s. There's a depth here that makes the album one of our favorite-ever soul records from the 70s – brilliant not just for the overall sound, but also for the pointed lyrics and really personal feel of the songs. Lead vocals shift between the different tunes – but are mostly handled by Gerri Griffin and Monica Burress, with warm support by the rest of the group. Titles include "Giving Love", "Cashing In", "Could This Be Love", "New Vibrations", and "Wanted Dead or Alive". Next is Can You Feel It – amazing work from The Voices Of East Harlem – a group with roots in gospel, but working here in a wonderfully soaring secular soul style – complete with arrangements and production from the legendary Leroy Hutson! The style here is similar to some of Leroy's best work, and that of his contemporaries on Curtom – a sound that's righteous and often funky, but able to hit some sweeter, warmer notes as well. Individual voices step out from the larger ensemble and take key leads on some tracks – and the overall style is simply mindblowing, at a level that makes us easily rank this as one of our favorite soul albums of all time! A must-have album, and one we've treasured for years – with tracks that include "Just Got To Be Myself", "So Rare", "March Across This Land", "Amazing Love", "Take A Stand", and "Can You Feel It".

Fremeaux & Associates (France), Late 30s/1940s/1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 3CD ... $18.99 29.99
Some of the earliest recordings of voodoo work from Haiti – served up here in a 3CD collection that includes a surprisingly huge amount of material! Some of the rawest work here was recorded in the field, but with clarity enough to make the chanted vocals and heavy percussion come through strongly – and other material was recorded as part of postwar projects by American labels, to document the very unusual, very site-specific sounds coming out of Haiti at the time! The set begins with some early acetate recordings from the 30s, then moves onto include the three volumes of the Music Of Haiti series from Folkways – all recorded in the early 50s, with a very rich quality. Next are a few albums that were issued by Elektra – including the famous Voices Of Haiti album, recorded by avant filmmaker Maya Deren, plus the label's Festival In Haiti album too. There's also a range of other small label recordings, too – material from a Remington label album, the Rituel Vaudou En Haiti record on Bam, and the Ceremonies Vaudou En Haiti album on Pacific – which makes for at least 8 albums' worth of material, plus more – in a big 3CD package that features 63 tracks in all, with notes in English and French.

VariousNuggets Vol 3 – Original Artyfacts From The First Psychedelic Era 1965 to 1968 ... CD
Warner (Japan), Late 60s. New Copy ... $19.99
A fantastic collection that goes way beyond the original Nuggets compilation – a set that digs even deeper into the now-huge Warner Brothers vaults – past familiar tracks from the home label, Elektra, and Atlantic – to include material from the huge range of other companies that now fall under their umbrella! As with the famous first volume, the sound here is nice and sinister – not familiar 60s pop, or psych-tinged hits – but some great underground work that really points the way towards decades ahead – even some of the material from the 80s that would finally give a nod back to the giants of this generation. This third volume features 23 gems – including an Electric Prunes radio commercial for the Vox wah-wah pedal – plus tracks that include "Spazz" by The Elastik Band, "Dark On You Now" by The Ashes, "It's Love" by The Misty Wizards, "Face" by The Koobas, "Night Comes Down" by Mickey Finn, "Rainbow" by Twentieth Century Zoo, "We Can Make It" by The Collectors, "I Found A New Love" by Ognir & The Nite People, "Number One (demo)" by The Charlatans, "Wantin Ain't Gettin" by The Flower Pot, "Doctor Stone" by The Beaten Path, "Spoonful" by West Coast Branch, "Hallucinations" by Baker Knight & The Knightmares, and "That's The Way It's Gonna Be" by Lee Mallory.

✨✧ Tim BuckleyLook At The Fool ... CD
DiscReet/Manifesto, 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The last album that Tim Buckley ever gave the world – and a great leaping-off point for speculation about what he might have done, had he not left the planet too soon! Tim's actually beginning to explore a bit of funk in his music here – still using that amazing voice with all of its range from the early Elektra years – but often set to backings that feature heavy drums from Earl Palmer, tight bass from Chuck Rainey, and keyboards from Mike Melvoin – all cats who can be tight, but never slick – and whose groove is more than loose enough to let Buckley direct the whole proceedings. Given that Tim has an occasional raw rasp, and a very offbeat way with his lyrics, the mix of elements is actually not that far from the funk of Betty Davis on her first two albums – with a similar shrug towards any easy genre categorizations. Titles include "Freeway Blues", "Look At The Fool", "Tijuana Moon", "Mexicali Voodoo", "Down In The Street", "Wanda Lou", and "Bring It On Up". CD

DiscReet/Manifesto, 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great later album from Tim Buckley – one that really shows him evolving his style in the last few years before his tragic early departure from this planet! Tim's working in a style here that's oddly heavier and with more bluesy overtones than some of his classic 60s albums for Elektra – almost reaching for a stronger style that competes with other singer-songwriters who were beating his action at the time! We're not saying that the album's slick or overly commercial – just recorded with a fuller sound, and less of the light jazz-tinged folk styles used in earlier years. A few of the tunes are done in the older Buckley mode, but others have strings, backing vocals, and other larger arrangements. Titles include "Quicksand", "I Know I'd Recognize Your Face", "Martha", "Peanut Man", "Dolphins", "Honey Man", "Because Of You", and "Sefronia – The King's Chain". CD

Maybe one of the purest expressions of the genius of Bonnie and Delaney Bramlett – an album that was recorded to feel like it was done in a motel room – with a stripped-down vibe that really gets at the best energy of the pair! Roots rock mixes with blue-eyed soul, gospel piano, and folksy acoustic guitar – often handled with an approach that feels very spontaneous and personal – as if you were a motel staffer standing outside the door of the duo's room, waiting to deliver a meal, but afraid to knock in the middle of a tune! Titles include "Where The Soul Never Dies", "Come On In My Kitchen", "Faded Love", "Talkin Bout Jesus", "Never Sending Song Of Love", "Goin Down The Road Feelin Bad", and "Long Road Ahead". Excellent CD reissue – with 8 more bonus tracks, from the original Elektra tapes that were morphed into the Atco sessions – most of them even more "motel" sounding overall! CD

Blue Thumb/Hip-O Select, Late 60s. Used 3CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Lesser-known work by Love – material recorded immediately after the group's seminal records on Elektra, with a slightly different sound! The CD brings together the Blue Thumb albums Out Here and False Start – plus a full album of previously unreleased live tracks! Both of the studio albums feature the band moving back to basics, working in a harder rocking style that has less of the baroque arrangements of albums like Da Capo or Forever Changes – somewhat bluesy at points, but also pretty harder rocking too. Arthur Lee is still as incredible as ever on these sides – with that slightly mad vocal approach that gives even the most mundane tunes a real edge – and the guitar work's supported by an even heavier style of rhythm, one that almost gives a few tracks some nice funky moments! Titles from Out Here include "I'll Pray For You", "Signed DC", "Stand Out", "I'm Down", "I Still Wonder", "Doggone", "Instra-Mental", and "Gather Round". Tracks from False Start include "Flying", "Gimi A Little Break", "Slick Dick", "Anytime", "Love Is Coming", and "Ride That Vibration". The live album features tracks recorded at three different shows in the UK in 1970 – 11 previously unreleased tracks that include "August", "Good Times", "My Little Red Book", "Orange Skies", "Andmoreagain", and "Bummer In The Summer".

A massive hit for Stanley Clarke – a record that has him reigning in some of his wilder elements a bit, and going for a groove that's right in the pocket! There's a definite soul fusion influence going on here – Clarke trying to hit the same groove as some of his contemporaries, and doing a pretty good job of it in the process. Still, the album's never as polished as efforts like this on Blue Note or Elektra – just a bit more focused than before, but in a really good way. David Sancious and Chick Corea both play keyboards on the set – and tracks include "School Days", "Hot Fun", "Desert Song", "The Dancer", and "Quiet Afternoon". CD

✨✧ VariousSilver Roads – Australian Country Rock & Singer/Songwriters Of The 70s ... CD
Warner (Australia), 1970s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Here's a world we really don't know at all – but which really comes alive, thanks to the strength of the compilation! Australia's been home to lots of famous global acts over the years, but back in the 70s it was a real hotbed of hipster material in a country vein – work that's like the down under equivalent of late 60s Byrds or Gram Parsons – and often put together with a similar sort of inspiration! Given that these guys were light years from Nashville – and even Bakersfield too – the version of country that comes across is much more in the best singer-songwriter style of LA, especially the Elektra/Asylum side of the spectrum. Lyrics are well-penned, and instrumentation often features lots of acoustic elements mixed with careful electric touches – but all produced with a down to earth style that really keeps the individual spirit intact. The notes are great, and vibrantly illustrate this overlooked world of Australian music (at least in our hemisphere) – and tracks include "Outback Dan" by Sundown, "Wind & Rain" by Bluestone, "The Ballad Of Ned Kelly" by Fotheringay, "Gypsy Queen" by Country Radio, "Ford's Bridge" by Axiom, "Silvertown Girl" by The Flying Circus, "Winter In America" by Doug Ashdown, "Glory Glory" by Johnny Chester, "Sweet Release" by Tymepiece, and "Lay In The Graveyard" by Russell Morris. Even features the track "Sommerville" by Fraternity – an early band with Bon Scott! 2CD set features 46 tracks in all! CD
