George JonesGeorge Jones Sings (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Southern Routes, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
Stunning early sounds from the legendary George Jones – material recorded in the years before his bigger fame on the Musicor and Epic labels – and tracks that show that Jones was already a hell of a well-developed talent right from the start! The cuts here sparkle with that trademark George Jones vocal sound – but also have a nice sort of an edge, as George hasn't settled down into that totally smooth approach of later years – and instead here moves between rocking moments and more twang-heavy tunes – served up on an assortment of singles and rare tracks recorded for the Mercury, Starday, and Dixie labels. Titles include "Too Much Water", "Seasons Of My Heart", "Gonna Come Get You", "I'm Ragged But I'm Right", "Eskimo Pie", "No No Never", "Play It Cool", "Take The Devil Out Of Me", "Just One More", and "No Money In This Deal". A hell of a collection – 29 tracks in all! CD

Pat MethenyAmerican Garage ... LP
ECM, 1979. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A brilliantly evocative album from Pat Metheny – one that's got a quietly epic feel, as Pat and group soar out across the American landscape in a set of tunes that subtly explore space and sound while still remaining wonderfully fluid. There's nothing forced here, and nothing too slick – just a magical blend of acoustic and electric sounds, touched with those mystical notes that seem to flow effortlessly from the hands of keyboardist Lyle Mays. Titles include "The Epic", "American Garage", "Cross The Heartland", "Airstream", and "The Search". LP, Vinyl record album

Pat MethenyAs Fall Wichita, So Falls Wichita Falls ... LP
ECM, 1981. Near Mint- ... $8.99
One of our favorite Metheny moments ever – and one of the few albums of his that we can go back to, and still enjoy heartily! The album's wonderfully stripped down – and features only guitar by Metheny, keyboards by Lyle Mays, and percussion and vocals by Nana Vasconcelos, all blended together with some sublime ECM production by Manfred Eicher, who's really got "the sound" in full effect here, pillowtizing all the instrumentation into wonderful washes of color and tone. The standout track is the 20 minute epic "As Falls Wichita, So Falls Wichita Falls" – and other tunes include "It's For You", "Estupenda Graca", and "Ozark". LP, Vinyl record album

Louis Moholo/Larry Stabbins/Keith TippettTern ... CD
Atavistic/Unheard Music Series, 1982. Used ... $16.99
A monster from the FMP archives – a lost trio set, recorded live in Berlin on two dates in the early 80s! It features frenetic South African drummer Louis Moholo, wild soprano and tenor sax from Larry Stabbins, and piano work by Keith Tippett, who spent time in King Crimson in the 70s before following his free jazz muse out of the prog scene. The crew rips through four epic length numbers, three of which fall over or very close to the 20 minute mark. They're full of Tippett's rolling piano and Moholo's trap, both of which really hold the things together in a compelling fashion so Stabbins can go to town on the sax. Despite the length of the numbers, it's all surprisingly cohesive and muscular. It's seriously one of the most menacing bits of jazz we've heard from the era – and a really sharp document of what was happening on the fringe of the British scene at the time. "Tern (First and Second Part)", "Mania/Dance", and "The Greatest Service". CD
(Barcode has a cutout hole. Out of print.)

Melba MooreSomething On Your Mind/Closer ... 7-inch
Expansion (UK), 1980. New Copy ... $4.99
\A sweet little cut from Melba Moore's time at Epic Records – a time when the singer was fusing her amazing vocals onto a warmer modern soul groove – one that comes across perfectly on this single! The tune's got a righteous flow, even before the lyrics come into the mix – and "Closer" on the flipside is from similar vintage, and served up in this jazzy version of modern soul that's wonderful for Moore's technique! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Ennio MorriconeOnce Upon A Time In America ... CD
Mercury, 1983. Used ... $12.99
Magical mainstream Morricone – a sublime score for Sergio Leone's epic tale of gangland growth in the 20th century! Although penned for a wider audience, most of the best Morricone elements are still at play in this soundtrack – a great sense of space and timing, and some key use of spare, isolated instruments – including the pan flute of George Zamfir, an odd choice given the New York setting of the film, but one that comes off beautifully in the mix. Strings back up most of the tunes, but they're never too sleepy – just slightly sentimental, but in a really good way. Titles include "Childhood Memories", "Once Upon A Time In America", "Cockeye's Song", "Childhood Poverty", "Friends", "Photographic Memories", "Speakeasy", and "Poverty". CD also features some bonus tracks too! CD

Moving Gelatine PlatesWorld Of Genius Hans (180 gram pressing) ... LP
CBS/Replica (France), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $22.99
Pioneering proggy jazz rock from France – the excellent second album from Moving Gelatine Plates – a very hip little group! World Of Genius Hans has some bubbly, keyboard centered atmosphere that's quite akin to what was happening in the German jazz rock scene of the time – but the abrupt jazzy changes, accomplished guitar leads and atmospheric vocals are benchmark prog – and often have that French sense of freedom that gives the record an especially strong sense of charm. Titles include the epic title track plus "Funny Doll", "Astronomer", "Moving Theme", "Cauchemar", "We Were Livin' Her", and "Un Jour". LP, Vinyl record album

Neville BrothersAuthorized Bootleg – Warfield Theater, San Francisco 1989 ... CD
Hip-O Select, 1989. Used 2CD ... $13.99
A nice live snapshot of the Neville Brothers as they were hitting their popular peak as a group – recorded (quite excellently) at San Francisco's Warfield Theater in '89! The group blended New Orleans funk & soul, stellar group vocals, gospel, little Caribbean flourishes, and classic R&B styled rock & roll seamlessly and masterfully – made all the better in concert! Disc one includes "Fire On The Bayou", "Hey Pocky Way", "Junk Man", "Mojo Hannah", "Wake Up", "Voodoo" and more, plus an instrumental jam. Disc two includes "My Love", "Sister Rosa", a medley of "Brother John/Iko Iko/Do You Want To Dance/Banana Boat Song (Day-O)", "Big Chief" and more an epic medley of early rock & roul numbers that includes "Johnny B Goode", "Rip It Up", "Long Tall Sally" and more – plus a spirtually minded closing takes on "Amazing Grace" and "One Love".

Riz OrtolaniContro 4 Bandiere ... LP
Duse (Italy), 1979. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A great later score from Riz Ortolani – and one that shows off the best talents for reaching out to time and place he developed in the 60s! The film's a WWII narrative – but Ortolani's music is often a lot more than you'd expect – occasionally scene-setting in its construction, yet with a more modern filmic aspect that carries a feel that's almost more epic than the images on the screen! The gentle theme is especially haunting – with some nice sensual overtones – and titles include "From Hell To Victory", "Accounts To Render", "Paris 1945", "Fabienne Theme", "Nicole Theme", "Hearts In Suspense", and "Toward The Victory". LP, Vinyl record album

PeopleI Love You ... LP
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good- ... $8.99
An obscure late 60s treasure on Capitol – one of those groups who were part garage-rock, and part high concept – a fact that's instantly apparent on this LP! Side one features a number of shorter, driving tunes that are pretty great – surprisingly heartfelt on the lyrics, with Doors-like instrumentation that includes lots of organ bits. Side two features on long song – "The Epic" – a story track with lots of twists and turns, and almost a Bowie-like delivery at times. Titles include "Crying Shoes", "I Love You", "1000 Years BC", "Nothing Can Stop The Elephants", and "Ashes Of Me". LP, Vinyl record album

Lou ReedBerlin ... CD
RCA, 1973. New Copy ... $5.99 7.99
The "biggest" album of Lou Reed's career – in the grand sense – with epic production and a small army of superstar session players and production by spectacle specialist Bob Ezrin – but that's paired with arguably the darkest, gloomiest songcycle ever composed by Lou Reed! The dichotomy works, and Lou apparently agrees, having revisited the material in the mid aughties to great acclaim. Ultimately, this and the previous year's Transformer makes for one of the strangest and most incredible transitions over a short period of time in pop music history. Titles include "Berlin", "Lady Day", "Men Of Good Fortune", "Caroline Says" (I & II), "The Kids", "The Bed", "Sad Song" and more. CD

Clara RockmoreArt Of The Theremin ... CD
Delos, Mid 70s. Used ... $3.99
A pretty amazing and surprisingly lovely LP from theremin player Clara Rockmore – accompanied on piano by Nadia Reisenberg – and a record that really strips away the sci fi futurist stereotype of the theremin! The material was recorded in the mid 70s, an LP "presented by" Shirleigh and Robert Moog, and featuring the personal endorsement of Leon Theremin among the information on the gatefold sleeve, and Clara really earns the accolades and presentation of these electronic pioneers. She ekes haunting, ethereal and beautiful sounds from the instrument, with a bit of drama and an almost classical feel, but stripped to the dramatic essence rather than grand and epic. Wonderful! Includes takes on Rachmaninoff, Stravinsky and Tschaikowsky among others, with "Vocalise", "Song Of Grusia", "The Swan", "Chant Du Memestrel" and more. CD

✨✧ Rolling StonesExile On Main Street (deluxe 2CD edition) ... CD
Virgin/Universal, 1972. Used 2CD ... $8.99
The Rolling Stones at their rawest, most shambling, sleazy and brilliant – the epic, unimpeachable Exile On Main Street! What can we say about one of the most iconic LPs of all time other than chime in with our agreement that it's one of the greatest rock albums ever! Big choruses come and go, but the easy hooks of earlier and later Stones hits are buried in mud, grit and a sleazy bluesy groove. Titles include "Rocks Off", "Rip This Joint", "Tumbing Dice", "Sweet Virginia", "Loving Cub", "Torn And Frayed", "Let It Loose", "All Down The Line", "Shine A Light", "Soul Survivor" and more. 2CD deluxe remastered edition includes a bonus disc with 10 previously unreleased tracks that were recorded in the Exile era, some finished up specifically for this release. Bonus tracks include "Pass The Wine", "Plundered My Soul", "Dancing In The Light", "Following The River", "So Divine (Aladdin Story)", alternate takes of "Loving Cup" and "Soul Survivor" and more!

RootsPhrenology ... CD
MCA, 2002. Used ... $4.99
A new hip hop soul masterpiece!!! On Things Fall Apart ?uestlove, Black Thought, DJ Scratch, Rahzel and co. reinvigorated the scene with a Philly style soulful, melancholy groove that seemingly influenced the entirety of the NuSoul world – and it could even be argued that the Roots birthed that whole scene. Phrenology carries that torch, but it's so, SO much more, as the heady nature weighed the previous LP down in spots, and Phrenology is a sprawling exercise in expectation-busting perfection! "Rock You" kicks things off in explosive fashion, forgoing the laid back, yet angry soul backbone the group pioneered in hop hop, for a massive electro pulse pounding style – with Black Thought frenetically spitting confrontational wisdom until the synth unexpectedly dives into a short burst of live hardcore punk with "!!!!!!!" (we know what you're thinking, but trust us, it REALLY works). "Sacrifice" features a surprisingly effective chorus sung by Nelly Furtado, and other guest spots include Kweli heating up "Rolling With Heat", Ursula Rucker kicking some reverential poetry on "Waok (ay) Rollcall", and Musiq on the single "Break You Off". Other highlights include the late 80s Bomb Squad-like production on "Thought @ Work", the group's live instrumentation (and ?uestlove's always great trap work) and soul claps on tunes like "The Seed (2.0)", the epic "Water", and "Complexity" with Jill Scott. If you're solely of the 2 turntables and a mic camp you may want to head elsewhere, but if you've been anxiously awaiting the new Roots LP like we have, you'll be knocked straight on your arse, welled up with tears of joy. The best major label hip hop album of '02, and a beauty to go in the time capsule for future generations to learn, and mourn what they missed first hand. Amazing!!! Other tracks include "Quills", "Pussy Galore", and "Something In The Way Of Things (In Town)". CD

Bruce SpringsteenTies That Bind – The River Collection (4CDs/3DVDs/Book) ... CD
Columbia, Late 70s. New Copy 6CD/DVD ... $79.99 119.98
An absolutely epic journey down The River – and it's one well worth taking – with more than 50 tracks on 4 CDs plus 3 DVDs! The original double album is prime classic Springsteen, circa 1980 – a few years removed at this point from the massive breakthrough that was Born To Run, and seemingly starting to let go of the darker tone of Darkness On The Edge Of Town, though still with some shadows of it. Definitely a creative high point, and a record we're always happy to revisit. Includes "The Ties That Bind", "Hungry Heart", "Out In The Street", "Fade Away", "Ramrod", "Rive All Night", "Wreck On The Highway", "Independence Day" and more. The box set also includes the first official release of The River: Single Album, recorded in '79 and intended as the follow up to Darkness At The Edge Of Town before Springsteen scrapped the idea and went back in the studio and ultimately released the fuller, farther reaching double album. It includes 7 songs from the eventual double, some with alternate lyrics and arrangements – and there's also a full CD of outtakes. The 3 DVDs include the great feature length documentary, a complete concert from The River tour in 1980, filmed in Tempe, AZ, plus disc with never before seen rehearsal footage. Comes with a heavy duty coffee table book, too! CD

Howard TateI Learned It All The Hard Way – Deep Soul Classics 1966 to 1976 ... LP
Playback (Poland), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $15.99 18.99
A killer collection of work from the great Howard Tate – a stunning soul singer who recorded mostly during an initial decade in the studio, then briefly returned to fame in the few short years before his death – always with a depth and vibrancy that set him apart right from the start! Tate was born in the south, but raised in Philly – and as such, has this unusual blend of deep soul vocals and more sophisticated modes – heard most famously in his early work with producer Jerry Ragovoy, but carried on strongly in his 70s records too – all of which are sampled here, in a collection that includes material from Howard's sessions for Verve, Atlantic, Epic, HT, and Turntable Records! Titles include "Stop", "8 Days On The Road", "Question", "These Are The Things That Make Me Know You're Gone", "You're Lookin Good", "Get It While You Can", "Night Owl", "Sweet Love Child", "Ain't Got Nobody To Give It To", "Brand New Me", "The Bitter End", "She's A Burglar", and "My Soul's Got A Hole In It".

Art WebbMr Flute ... CD
Atlantic/Wounded Bird, 1977. New Copy ... $3.99 11.98
A tasty batch of uptempo instrumentals by Art Webb – a lesser-known funky flute player, but one who played on a huge amount of Latin sessions during the 70s (check your session notes, and you'll see his name a surprising amount of times!) This fairly obscure session as a leader was produced by Patrick Adams, who also did all the arrangements and conducted the large backing group – in a sweet mode that's a mix of Adams' clubby work for P&P, and the tighter fusion that you'd expect to hear on Atlantic records at the time. Webb's flute lines soar over larger backings and some chorus vocals that come across with a more polished take on the P&P sound – a mode that's somewhere in the same territory as Bobbi Humprhey's great late 70s records for Epic. Titles include "Melon Grove", "Mr. Flute", "Smile", "Good Times In Life", and "Come and Get Some Of This". CD
