George DukeI Love The Blues, She Heard My Cry ... CD
MPS/Verve, 1975. Used ... $7.99
One of George Duke's best albums for the MPS label – and a set that has a sound that's a little bit more soul than before! The album uses a fair bit of vocals alongside Duke's funky keyboards – but in a way that's not nearly as smooth as some of his albums for Epic, and which still retains all the best spacey and cosmic bits of his roots! The record's got a strong west coast soul feel – with elements of some of the jazzy funk of the Fantasy Records/Bay Area scene, and elements of the electric funk that was starting to come out of LA at the time – and there's a huge host of guest stars on the record, including Johnny Guitar Watson (who sings on one track), Emil Richards (who plays marimba), and Flora Purim (who does her usual thing!) Titles include "Chariot", "Someday", "That's What She Said", "Sister Serene", "Prepare Yourself", "Rokkinrowl", and "Look Into Her Eyes". CD

Nick FreundNews Is You – The Sacred & Secular Music Of Nick Freund (Montgomery Chapel/Each One Heard In His Own Language/bonus tracks) ... CD
Lion, 1968. New Copy 2 CDs ... $13.99
Two incredibly groovy records that will completely redefine your expectations for religious music – both put together by the Rev Nick Freund! Montgomery Chapel is an incredibly dark album that's way more acid folk than anything else – recorded by a group named The Search Party, and served up with spare acoustic guitar, trippy electric, and this etherel organ that really makes the whole thing feel like an acid trip right from the start – as do the lyrics, which are often sung by a female singer who sounds like Grace Slick really trying to push even farther past the darkness of "White Rabbit"! A few tunes are upbeat, but most are very slow and sad – almost Wicker Man in mood – with titles that include "The News Is You", "All But This", "Renee Child", "Speak To Me", "When He Calls", and "The Decidedly Short Epic Of Mr Alvira". The second album is titled after a creepy line from the Bible – Each One Heard In His Own Language About The Marvels Of God – quoted later by Aphrodite's Child on their 666 album, and presented here at the start of the record by the St Pius X Seminary Choir, in ways that oddly have the same sort of eerie undercurrents! The set's more of a straight vocal affair, but with plenty of folksy undertones – and there's also an undeniable sense of darkness that completely undercuts any brighter spirit of faith. Titles include "Who is This Man", "Get Together", "Come Children Hear Me", and "Mass For The Secular City". 2CD set features great notes, in the usual Lion style – plus a dozen more bonus tracks too!

Reprise, 1967. Very Good Gatefold ... $24.99
The Jimi Hendrix Experience at their most classic! Tripped out bluesy cosmic rock ferocity and great songs, too – firing on all cylinders here on the middle record of their ultra epic three LP series of unimpeachable greatness. Titles include "EXP", "Up From The Skies", "Spanish Castle Magic", "Castles Made Of Sand", "She's So Fine", "One Rainy Wish", "Bold As Love" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Maurice JarreUna Stagione All'Inferno (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Quartet (Spain), 1971. New Copy ... $22.99
A moody little soundtrack from Maurice Jarre – for a film set amidst a tropical location, which means even more exotic moments than usual! There's a nice sort of lightness to the overall soundtrack – almost some of the best love/sex themes you'd find in Italian material of the time – and a very nice change from some of Jarre's more conventional, more epic modes of a few years before – really handled with a great degree of space in the sound, which definitely keeps things interesting! And the more exotic moments are usually performed with conventional instrumentation, but used in new ways – especially the percussion and woodwinds. CD features 12 tracks from the original album, plus 20 more bonus tracks – and titles include "Una Stagione All'Inferno", "L'Impossible", "Vocali E Sillabe", "Carovana", "Caffe Arabo", and "Battaglia A Tchelenko".

Jarvis Street RevueMr Oil Man ... LP
Columbia/Lion, 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $18.99
The one-and-only early 70s album by Thunder Bay, Ontario psych heavies Jarvis Street Revue – rumbling rhythms and searing guitars – plus horns, wild vocals and trippy effects! The group have songs that seek rugged, natural living and environmental justice – but the music is tripped out and adventurous. The 12-minute title track is amazing, warning us about bad men and oil slicks in lyrics, yet it's nicely psychedelic in the musician ship. The vocals that remind us a bit of what Roger Daltery would sound like a few years later in the gnarlier, rougher realms of their sound, but there's some nice melody and groovier elements, too. Includes "Mr. Business Man", the epic title-track, "20 Years", "Sally's Hymn", "400 South" and "Heidi Ho" LP, Vinyl record album

JonesesGolden Soul Classics From The Early Years ... CD
Collectables, Early 70s. Used ... $8.99
Although they scored bit with hit albums on Mercury and Epic during the mid 70s, The Joneses had their roots back in the east coast indie scene – as you'll hear on this nice 14 track selection of sides from their early days! The set's a nice mixture of pop and soul stylings, and a few tracks have a nice 2-part style that works well with the group's sophisticated approach. Titles include "Break Your Promise", "Merry Go Round", "Movin On", "Hot & Cold", "Win Your Love", and "Hold Up". CD

JosefusDead Man ... LP
Hookah/Numero, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99 15.98
A rare slab of underground hard rock from Josefus – circa 1970, and a good half decade ahead of its time! It's got a walloping, fuzz-drenched blue rock swagger you might expect from subterranean TX rockers at the time – but the Zeppelin-y vocals, and overall dark and sludgy Sabbath-y vibe feels pretty damn prescient for a record made so early in the decade. It's genuinely strong stuff, too – not merely an underground take on nascent hard rock trends, but an impressive mix of accessible heavy rock and TX post-psych swagger. It includes a cover of the Stones' "Gimme Shelter" that sounds like no other version, plus "Crazy Man", "I Need A Woman", "Proposition", "Country Boy", "Situation" and the 17+ minute epic title track.

Jimi KritzlerNoise In My Head – Voices From The Ugly Australian Underground ... Book
HoZac, 2014. New Copy ... $29.99 59.99
An incredible document of the underground Australian rock scene! Noise In My Head is a pretty epic tome, and what's especially great about it, is that it's NOT a nostalgic look back at punk and post punk era bands, but a deep look at a vital, current post-millenium scene! Written by Jimi Kritzler, himself a player in the Melbourne band White Hex, who dedicated a few years of his time to interviewing dozens of great bands like Eddy Current Suppression Ring, Blank Realm, Hi God People, True Radical Miracle, Straight Arrows, Dead Farmers and many more. An honest, raw and real document here – just like the bands being spotlighted. It's a pretty immense paperback – better to immortalize such a vital scene – with nearly 500 pages, full of both color and b&w photos that practically put you right in the room. Beautiful! Book

Francis Lai & Michel LegrandLes Uns Et Les Autres ... LP
RCA (France), Late 70s. Near Mint- 2LP ... $18.99
Two of the greatest French soundtrack composers ever – working side by side in this epic soundtrack for a late 70s film by Claude Lelouch! The story spans decades of French histories, and the style of the music follows suit – starting with early 20th Century danceband work, and moving into some later styles that approach the more familiar soundtrack modes of Lai and Legrand – especially on the more lush, more fluidly flowing numbers that dominate as the work moves on. There's a few vocals in the mix, but most of the tracks are instrumental – with instrumentation that includes keyboards, piano, clarinet, and strings. Titles include "Body & Soul Inc", "Serenade For Sarah", "Les Allemands A Paris", "Dad & Co", "Les Uns Et Les Autres", "Ballade Pour Ma Memoire", and "Ballet Apocalypse". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Mdou MoctarAkounak Tedalat Taha Tazoughai ... LP
Mississippi/Sahel Sounds, 2015. New Copy ... $15.99
One of the best Tuareg guitar records we've ever heard – and the Saharan psych soul soundtrack to Akounak Tedalat Taha Tazoughai, billed as the first ever Tuareg language fiction movie – loosely inspired by Purple Rain! The film, like Prince's, focuses on the life of a struggling, motorcycle riding, soulful electric guitar genius, but Mdou Moctar wisely doesn't try to be deliver Saharan riff on the Minneapolis sound. His epic, hypnotic to the point of trancelike electric guitars are front and center, but never in a self-indulgent way, always in service of the moody compositions. Backed only by rhythm guitarist Ahmoudou Madassane and drummer Mahmoud "Achcouscous" Ahmed Jabre, the trio delivers an appropriately cinematic Saharan sound. Amazing! Titles include "Sibidoul", "Rhaicha's Theme", "Iblis Amghar", "Tahoultine", "Adounia", "Chimoumounin", "Jagwa", "Mdou's Theme" and "Tada Dounia". LP, Vinyl record album

Wes MontgomeryIn The Beginning – Early Recordings from 1949 to 1958 ... CD
Resonance, Late 40s/1950s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $22.99 24.98
An incredible look at the very young Wes Montgomery – rare early recordings done before his breakthrough material for the Riverside label in the late 50s – but already showing Wes as one of the freshest talents of his generation on guitar! The bulk of the material features Montgomery in live settings, mostly in his home turf of Indianapolis – but the collection also features a never-heard studio session from 1955 – recorded for Epic Records with Quincy Jones as the producer! The live tracks are wonderful – full of fire, but never roughshod or gritty – already showing that masterful Montgomery approach to the guitar in full effect – shining in the company of contemporaries who include Monk Montgomery on bass, Buddy Montgomery or Richie Crabtree on piano, Gene Morris or Alonzo Pookie Johnson on tenor, and Sonny Johnson on drums. It's especially great to hear tenor with Montgomery – an instrument that didn't always figure in his early sessions – and the quality of Alonzo's playing is especially great on the Epic studio sides too. There's a huge amount of information in the package to illuminate the music – plenty of notes, photos, and more – and titles include "Six Bridges To Cross", "Ralph's New Blues", "Soft Winds", "King Trotter", "All The Things You Are", "Wes' Tune", "Leila", "Far Wes", "Going Down To Big Mary's", "Brazil", "Four", "Smooth Evening", and "Carlena's Blues".

✨✧ PrinceSign O The Times ... LP
Paisley Park/Warner, 1987. Very Good- 2LP ... $16.99
A sprawling classic from Prince – that tracks that perfect the pop, funk & soul kaleidoscope of his best 80s jams, and adding a remarkable, previously unexplored depth and breadth of styles! A lot of folks tried to designate Prince's massive, fearless, beginning-of-the-end-of-the-80s epic Sign O The Times as his What's Going On – which was never really fair to Prince, or to Marvin Gaye for the matter – but it's filled with great cuts – including the minimalist funky groover of a title track, with its superficial social consciousness that's very much of its 80s era, and all the more fascinating for that – plus massive hit "U Got The Look", "If I Was Your Girlfriend", "I Could Never Take The Place Of Your Man", "The Cross", "Hot Thing", and "Starfish & Coffee". 17 tracks in all. LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeves.)

Red KrayolaSingles ... CD
Drag City, 1970s/1980s/1990s/Early 2000s. Used ... $13.99
The mighty Mayo Thompson has had some rich experiences in the global music underground – including time on the Texas psych scene of the late 60s, years in the UK post-punk world, a key role in the German intelligentsia, and a later role again here back in the US! This rich tapestry of experience is perfectly summed up by the singles in this collection – work that's pulled from some of the non-album work by Red Krayola – originally issued not just by Drag City, but by Rough Trade, Texas Revolution, and some German labels as well! The unique material features collaborations with David Grubbs, Albert Oehlen, Epic Soundtracks, Lora Logic, and others – and titles include "Woof", "Old Tom Clark", "Zukunfsflieger", "Your Body Is Hot", "4Teen", "Come On Down", "Born In Flames", "Micro Chips & Fish", and "An Old Man's Dream".

Buddy RichMan From Planet Jazz – Recorded Live At Ronnie Scott's Club ... CD
Five Four (UK), 1980. New Copy ... $9.99
Late work by jazz drum giant Buddy Rich – captured in a surprisingly energetic, firey, and sometimes funky mode at Ronnie Scott's Club in 1980! Buddy really pulled off some bright, buoyant, funk influenced work in the 70s and this set finds him at the tail end of that groove – playing with a pretty big group that includes Ernie Vantrease on piano, Wayne Pedziwiatr on bass, Ando Fusco, Jack Leibowitz, Steave Marcus and Kenny Hitchcock on saxes, Bob Coassin on lead trumpet, Roger Homefield on lead trombone, and others. Titles include "Intro/Beulah Witch", "Grand Concourse", "Blues A La 88", "Saturday Night", "Slow Funk" and the epic, 15+ minute closer "Good News". CD

Rolling Stones, 1972. Very Good- 2LP Gatefold ... $23.99
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.

Scott WalkerScott 4 ... CD
Fontana (UK), 1969. Used ... $6.99
A brilliant testament to the songwriting genius of Scott Walker – and an incredibly haunting batch of original tunes, filled with images of lonely madness and unactualized emotion, all sung by one of the greatest voices of the century! The album's not a record to be taken lightly – as the Scott Walker approach to music is really over the top here – almost mini-movies in sound, pasted from scenes both epic and private – all held together by an impeccable set of arrangements! The style beautifully links Walker's older pop persona with the growing sophistication in European pop – especially from the French – and with a record like this, Scott easily matches the genius of Brel, Brassens, and Gainsbourg. All titles are originals – and titles include "Rhymes Of Goodbye", "The Old Man's Back Again", "Hero Of The War", "Boy Child", "Seventh Seal", and "On Your Own Again". CD

New York loft scene talents and all around boundary busting jazz players of the very finest caliber – sax player David S Ware, pianist Cooper-Moore, bassist William Parker and drummer Muhammad Ali – together cruising the cosmos to Planetary Unknown! This is the first time these four have all played together in a group – but the sort of shared orbits they've traveled over many years nearly guarantees a brilliant set, and that's what they deliver. Recorded live at Brooklyn's Systems Two Studio in November, 2010. Includes the epic opener "Passage Wudang", "Shift", "Duality is One", "Divination", "Crystal Palace", "Divination Unfathomable" and "Ancestry Supramental". CD
