✨✧ Soul ChildrenThere Always (Finders Keepers/Where Is Your Woman Tonight) ... CD
Epic/Shout (UK), 1976/1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The post-Stax, Epic southern soul of the Soul Children – 1976's Finders Keepers and 1977's Where Is Your Woman Tonight back-to-back! Finders Keepers is a strong little album by the group – recorded with a very different sound than the Stax work – but one that's still totally great overall! The grooves are a bit warmer and more modern soul styled – uptempo at times, but never in a throwaway club mode – and in a way, the shift is a bit similar to that taken by The Dramatics at the same point. There's still plenty of nicely rough edges in the vocals – that raspy sense of soul that first made us fall in love with the group – and by this point, the lineup has been reduced to a trio, with more of a focus on male vocals than before. The session's filled with work by great Detroit talents who include Don Davis, Steve Mancha, and Harvey Scales – and tracks include "Finders Keepers", "A Little Understanding", "We Got To Get Our Thing Together", and "I'm Just A Shoulder To Cry On". Where Is Your Woman Tonight is another Epic gem with the group going for a smoother soul sound. Some tracks are a little uptempo, in hopes of a crossover hit – but mostly, just a a solid effort with the group continuing to grow from a raw soul group into a smoother one. This session features production by David Porter at Malaco studios, with the kind of mellow slightly funky vibe that the studio was perfect at for a few years. Titles include "Take Me Make Me", "Head On Collision", "Where Is Your Woman Tonight", "There Always", and "You Don't Need A Ring". CD

✨✧ DesignDesign/Tomorrow Is So Far Away ... CD
Epic/RPM (UK), 1970/1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Early 70s sunshine pop from Design – their self-titled set from 1970 and the just as groovy Tomorrow Is So Far Away – together in a single set! Design has a way with male and female harmonies that really sets them apart, even though that style was huge in the late 60s and early 70s. They're essentially a vocals group with an acoustic guitar, given some pretty groovy rock and more soaring pop arrangements. Titles include "Coloured Mile", "Willow Stream", "Marguaretta", "Matchbox Man", "Children Of The Mist" and more. Tomorrow Is So Far Away is similarly sweet, a mix of smaller scale numbers and bigger arrangements, always with deft harmonies. Includes "Take A Boat", "Celestina", "Sad Fisherman", "Ladybird Don't Fly", "Butterfly Catcher", "Man We Was Lonely" and more. CD

✨✧ ClashCombat Rock (2013 Black Friday Release) ... CD
Epic, 1982. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Sure, the cover's a bit dated – but the politics have stayed surprisingly strong over the years – as has the music as well! Keep in mind that The Clash were waging war in the Mideast years before Desert Storm – in this searing mix of London punk, rocksteady roots, and slight new wave elements – delivered here with a surprising sense of self that really gave the whole thing a sense of wit – and more than enough legs to keep on going without collapsing under the passage of time! Titles include the hit "Should I Stay Or Should I Go", the classic "Rock The Casbah", and the tracks "Ghetto Defendant", "Car Jamming", "Know Your Rights", "Straight To Hell", and "Inoculated City".

✨✧ Henri GuedonCosmozouk Percussion ... LP
Epic/Superfly (France), Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The coolest grooves we've ever heard from percussionist Henri Guedon – a really wonderful blend of Latin, Caribbean, and jazz-based influences – all filtered into a very special sound! There's plenty of percussion at the core, but there's also some sweet keyboards too – used sparely, so that the album's not a funky electric one – but in just the right ways to bring in a cool sort of 70s funk touch to the whole record – almost in some of the ways you'd find with Nuyorican funk of the same time! Vocals are great, too – mostly in French – but the instrumental element is what really moves us – and it moves us plenty! Titles include "Brujeira", "Tou Patou Feme", "Guajira Contestation", "Bomba Miscien", "Vulcano", and "Marcel Song". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ KrystolTalk Of The Town (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Epic/FTG, 1985. Used ... Out Of Stock
Bumping, bouncing soul from Krystol – one of the strongest female groups of the 80s, and one of the few who really helped push the sound further at the time! The groove here is equal parts funk and soul – and has a brashness that a girl act wouldn't have had a decade before – lots of echoes of new rhythms learned from the streets, fused with top-shelf production that helps send the whole thing home strongly! The style is tight, yet never clunky commercial – and Leon Sylvers' production really helps keep a lean quality to most of the tracks. And sure, the costumes on the cover look a bit silly, but the vocals have a lot more depth than you might expect! Titles include "Love Is Like An Itchin In My Heart", "C'Est La Vie", "I Want A Man Who Can Dance", "Hard To Believe", "The Things That Men Do", "Talk Of The Town", and "Shattered Glass". CD features lots of bonus tracks – "Love Is Like An Itchin (long vocal)", "Love Is Like An Itchin (edited)", "Love Is Like An Itchin (ext dub)", "The Things That Men Do (radio)", and "The Things That Men Do (club)".

✨✧ Patti LabelleReleased (with bonus track) ... CD
Epic/Big Break (UK), 1980. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A real standout in the early solo years of Patti Labelle – and a great set that reunites the singer with New Orleans legend Allen Toussaint – who'd previously worked some magic with Patti and the Labelle trio! Toussaint really grounds Patti's vocals wonderfully – giving them a solid footing that moves past the pop and disco of previous records, but which also doesn't just resort to New Orleans cliches, either. Either Toussaint or Labelle wrote most of the songs on the record – and together, they find a fresh batch of material that really helps establish the singers as one of the greatest female voices in soul. The whole album's a classic – well-balanced between mellow and upbeat numbers – and titles include "Find The Love", "Get Ready", "Give It Up", "Release", "I Don't Go Shopping", "Ain't That Enough", and "Don't Make Your Angel Cry". CD features a bonus track – "Release (The Tension) (12" disco mix)". CD

Epic/Big Break (UK), 1982. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Great early work from Billy Ocean – a smooth album of understated groovers, all done in a style that's nicely retrained, and which places a good focus on Billy's great vocals! Most of the record skips along in a warm mellow groove – never too over the top, and in a way that makes us wish he would have kept on this track for years to come! Titles include "No Matter What", "Dance With Me", "Calypso Funkin", "I Can't Stop", "Was It You", "Mind Games", and "Inner Feelings". This Big Break UK remastered version has 6 bonus tracks: the previously unreleased "Smile" and "Somebody" plus an alternate version of "City Light" and single versions of "Calypso Funkin'", "Was It You" and "Inner Feelings".

✨✧ PagesFuture Street ... CD
Epic/Sony (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Richard Page and his Pages group come on with a bit more force here on this second sweet set from the 70s – but they're still working strongly in the soulful blend of AOR rock and fusion they delivered on their debut! Pages have a vibe that's a bit like Loggins & Messina or Boz Scaggs at their best – catchy, but never too commercial – a way of using all the best elements of the 70s studio scene to craft a sound that's professional and tight, but definitely deeper than usual. The set's a great counterpart to albums by folks like Bobby Caldwell or Gino Vannelli – and titles include "I Do Believe In You", "Future Street", "Who's Right Who's Wrong", "Keep On Movin", "Two People", and "The Sailor's Song".

✨✧ PeddlersThree In A Cell ... LP
Epic, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A heck of a cool group – with a really wonderful sound! The Peddlers were a late 60s British trio, with a sound that's part soul, part jazz, part supper-club vocals – all done with a clean, clear, hard-grooving approach – and strong instrumentation that often includes a heavy dose of Hammond organ! A big chunk of the work on this album has a gently funky sound that really takes it miles from its original roots – as familiar numbers get transformed into nicely party-rocking tunes with a very hip groove – making for a few tracks that have nice breaks, and others that cook with a nice mod little sound! Keith Mansfield's helping the trio get their groove on here – and titles include their classic break take on "On A Clear Day", plus "Nobody Likes Me", "I'm A Boy In Love", "Comin Home Baby", "Just A Pretty Song", "Prime Of My Life", and "Lost Continent".

✨✧ Red Beans & RiceRed Beans & Rice Featuring Ray Draper ... LP
Epic, 1969. Used ... Out Of Stock
Ray Draper was quite an interesting fellow – for a tuba player! Despite the heaviness of his instrument, the guy made some key early recordings with Coltrane and Jackie McLean during the late 50s, recorded some disco albums during the late 70s, and managed to cut this crossover batch of rock and funk tunes at the end of the 60s! Draper plays tuba and trombone, as well as sings on the set – and the group behind him has that dirty funky Fillmore kind of groove. The best moments of the set are the instrumental ones – like the groover "Trilogy", or the long solo on "Let My People Go". Other tracks include "Mess Around", "Gentle Old Sun", "Happiness", "Empty Streets", and "If You Ever Wanna". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ David SanciousTransformation (The Speed Of Love) ... CD
Epic/Esoteric (UK), 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Cosmic fusion from David Sancious – one of his headphone-popping albums for Columbia from the 70s! The record has a really outerspace kind of approach – long tracks that build and layer sound, mostly electric instrumentation, with lots of keyboards, guitars, and percussion. He's again working as a trio with longtime friends and collaborators Gerald Carboy on bass and Ernest Carter on drums and percussion – now working together under the banner of Tone. The songs on Transformation are longer on Transformation, and they're working with more diverse style, adding some bluesy jamming and spacier prog sounds to their hard-hitting fusion sound. Gayle Moran sings lead vocals on the cut "Transformation (The Speed Of Love)", and other tracks include "Sky Church Hymn #9", "Piktor's Metamorphosis" and "Play & Display Of The Heart". CD

✨✧ Smoke CityI Really Want You ... CD
Epic/FTG, 1985. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A damn great bit of 80s soul – the only album ever issued by Smoke City, but a killer set that we've loved for many years – especially given the group's link to the Chicago scene! The set's perfectly put together – head and shoulders above so much other major label soul of the time – with a mature, sophisticated groove that's really wonderful – almost an extension of the styles explored by Philly International at the start of the 80s, taken forward at a time when so many others were amping up their drum machines and going for too-commercial riffs in their grooves. The vocals alternate nicely between lead male singer Daveon Overton and female singer Starr – and the album also alternates between 80s groove, quiet storm numbers, and even a few slyly jazzy numbers that are perfect for the hipper side of the mainstream soul spectrum at the time. Titles include "Dreams", "Life Of the Party", "Time To Jam", "Back Seat Kind Of Girl", "In The World Of Fantasy", and "Cafe Francois". CD

A beautiful collection of early important work from Jack Teagarden – and one of the best vinyl portrayals of his genius from these key years! Teagarden's trombone work is amazing – the sort that set the tone for countless players to come – and there's also a lot of warmth and wit in the recordings as well. 48 tracks in all – with notes, and a lot better sound than some scratchy ol' 78s!

Epic, 1978. Used ... Out Of Stock
Surprisingly nice funky disco work from Joe Tex – still recording here with classic producer Buddy Killen, but using some warmer arrangements from Bergen White, done in a sweet Nashville take on the 70s sound of Philly! The backings are large, with strings over some electric rhythms – but Joe's proud, warm, and raspy vocals still come through beautifully – stepping out with some funky touches on even the mellower cuts, and still keeping a very strong "Gotcha" groove in the mix. Includes the great monologue track "Be Kind To Old People", plus "You Might Be Digging The Garden", "Rub Down", "You Can Be My Star", "Congratulations", "I Know You You Like Your Lovin", "I Gotcha", and "Get Back Leroy".

Anti Pop ConsortiumFluorescent Black ... CD
Big Dada (UK), 2009. Used ... $4.99
Anti Pop Consortium is back after a lengthy hiatus – and it's a blast – laser cauterized funk beats, squealing synth funk, and innovative rhymes from Beans, Blaize, Hi Priest and Sayyid! The crew is in a unique position for this comeback record, in that they can pick up pretty close to where they left off, and have it called an epic win. They worked within thei own sound from the get go, and no one else really picked up the baton twhen they hung it up for solo records. There's too much of a coherent vibe to tag this as experimental hip hop, there's a masterplan to it, and it's a brilliant one. Titles include "Lay Me Down", "New Jack Exterminator", "Reflections", "Shine", "C Thru U", "Volcano", "Timpani", "Get Lite", "NY To Tokyo" feat Roots Manuva, "Born Electric", "End Game", "Capricorn", "Dragunov", "Fluorescent Black" and more.

Ray Bryant TrioRay Bryant Trio/Dancing The Big Twist ... CD
Columbia/Collectables, 1956/1962. Used ... $13.99
2 of Ray's early albums for Columbia – back to back on one CD! Ray Bryant Trio is Ray's first full LP, recorded shortly after his initial session with Betty Carter, which was also issued by Epic. The album's got Ray grooving in a hard early soul jazz mode – working in a trio with either Kenny Clarke or Osie Johnson on drums, and Wyatt Reuther on bass. Candido joins in on congas on 2 of the album's best tracks – a hard grooving take on "Night In Tunisia", plus Ray's classic "Cubano Chant", a dancing Latin groover that went onto become an oft-recorded Latin Jazz standard. Other titles include "Pawn Ticket", "Philadelphia Bound", and "Off Shore". Dancing The Big Twist was recorded as a follow-up to Ray's Madison Time album – one that has Columbia Records letting him loose on another dance craze – the twist! The set has none of the hoke of a Chubby Checker record, though – and instead, it's one of Ray's best soul jazz sides of the 60s, an excellent sextet session that's done with a gutbuckety groove, and which really sparkles thanks to some tight horn work by Joe Newman, Buddy Tate, and Matthew Gee. Ray's heavy left hand grooves really jump the whole set up nicely – and titles include "Big Susie", "Twist On", "Twist City", "Twistin On A Cat's Paw", and "Do That Twist". CD

United Artists/Mute, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 20.98
An early classic from Can – the first recordings with Damo Suzuki, and kind of the start of Can's more hypnotic sounds! Soundtracks found the group working for, you guessed it, film projects, but it's still pretty much a Can album rather than passages of more ambient score type music. Hypnotically repetitive rhythms and always excellent Can drums & percussion, with vocals by Damo, and the last couple of Can tracks with Malcolm Mooney. Titles include the epic "Mother Sky", "Deadlock", "Tango Whiskeyman", "Don't Turn The Lights On, Leave Me Alone", "Soul Desert" and "She Brings The Rain". LP, Vinyl record album

Angela ClemmonsAngela Clemmons (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Portrait/FTG, 1982. Used ... $9.99
Soaring vocals from Angela Clemmons – a set that really has an amazing range, and a depth of sound that goes way past the usual from Epic Records at the time! Angela's got a way of stretching out right from the start – inflecting the lyrics with a rich power that easily matches or beats some of her bigger-name contemporaries at the time – and which really help give an extra something special to the record. Production is by Paul Leka, and a number of songs were written by Michael Brown – and the pair really help give the whole thing a personal feel, and keep the set from being just another run of the mill mainstream soul album from the early 80s. Titles include "Giving It Away", "Fill You Up", "Uneasy", "When You're Through I'll Be Waiting", "Mine", and "Sure Thing". CD features two bonus tracks – "Out Here On My Own (7" mix)", and "Give Me Just A Little More Time (12" mix)". CD

✨✧ Miles DavisTribute To Jack Johnson ... LP
Columbia, 1971. Very Good+ ... $16.99
A masterful tribute from one bad cat to another – and easily one of Miles Davis' greatest electric albums ever! The album's got a powerful, epic sort of feel – a renewed focus after the looser style of Bitches Brew, and the 70s live albums – and one that mixes a deeper funky sound with the raw, exploratory style Davis had let loose a few years before. Michael Henderson's bass is a big part of the power of the record, and John McLaughlin's guitar has never sounded better, or sharper. Teo Macero made the whole thing magic in the studio, and titles include two sidelong funkdafied jams – "Right Off" and "Yesternow". LP, Vinyl record album

George DukeBrazilian Fusion ... CD
Wounded Bird, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
A dream of a set – at least to our Brazilian-loving ears – a special package that brings together all the best Brazilian-flavored cuts from George Duke's late 70s run on Epic Records! The package is filled with wonderfully sunny grooves throughout – tunes that sparkle and soar with mighty nice rhythms – topped with loads of keyboards from George, and vocals that often have a scatting, breezy style that's plenty sweet – American soul influenced by Brazilian grooves, in a sound that's a bit like the feel of Earth Wind & Fire's "Brazilian Rhyme". It's wonderful to have these cuts all together, and the set feels like a dream album we would have compiled ourselves – with titles that include "Omi", "The Future", "The Way I Feel", "Sunrise", "Festival", "A Melody", "Ipanema Lady", "Corine", "Positive Energy", "Let Your Love Shine", "Thinking Of You", "Your Life", and "Yeah We Going".

Music Box (France), 1979/1983. Used ... $1.99
A warm European soundtrack from Serge Franklin – but one that's also served up with plenty of twists and turns to keep things exciting! The film's got a WWII setting – and Franklin mixes occasional bits of swing and jazz with the fuller orchestrations – which themselves have the evocative quality of a Morricone historical epic – never overdone, but shifting colors and tones in a really beautiful way. A few passages underscore military themes, but with a bit of humor – and titles include "Carnaval Circus", "Le Grand Carnaval", "Leon Et Walter", "Le Testament", "Sweetheart", and "Bolero Du Grand-Pere". The CD also features a handful of tracks from Le Coup De Sirocco – material that's got a similar warm feel as the larger orchestrations on the first soundtrack, but with a few playful moments too – on tracks that include "Sexy Sax Blues", "Narboni & Fils", "Ville D'Alger", and "Hey Baby Foot".

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!

Freaked out, slow burning, LSD inspired freeform psychedelia from the early 70s – credited to Czech-born guru Sergius Golowin and the Cosmic Jokers! Conceptually, Lord Krishna Von Goloka concerns itself with the spiritual machinations of the universe and all kinds of mystical mumbo jumbo of which we can't claim to speak for the merits, mostly due to a language barrier, but the leisurely cosmic soundspaces speak to us well enough! Acoustic guitars, spacey keys, organ and echoey sounds bring a lighter feel to much of it, as opposed to the heavier proggy touches of contemporary efforts of the time. 3 long pieces, the uber epic length "Der Reigen" and "Di Hock-Zeit" which each run near 20 minutes, and the shorter middle part "Die Weibe Alm".

Jeffree, aka Jeff Perry, is the brother of Greg Perry – and works in a similar style to his more famous brother – warmly grooving soul with a fluid, mellow approach – served up with great production, bubbling rhythms, and a really solid sound overall. The work is very much in the best tradition of 70s giants like Marvin Gaye or Leroy Hutson, and the collection brings together the best tracks from the self-titled Jeffree album on MCA from 1979, plus other assorted singles recorded under the name of Jeff Perry for Arista and Epic.

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

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".

✨✧ MoondogMoondog – The Viking Of Sixth Avenue ... LP
Honest Jons (UK), 1950s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99
A long-overdue tribute to the legendary Moondog – one of the true visionaries of American music in the 20th Century! Moondog got his starts as a blind musician working the streets of New York at the end of the 40s, but he did so (as you'll note on the cover photo) with a range of unusual instruments of his own invention, and in a minimal, rhythmic style that linked together primitivism with higher musical ideals. Moondog's often been called "the father of minimalism" – and while his experiments of the 50s prefaced the work of Steve Reich, Terry Riley, and others, his work was also much more personal, and had an earthy intensity that's still tremendously powerful even decades later! This collection is one of the first to dip into the earliest of Moondog's recordings – his recordings for the Mars, SRC, Brunswick, and Moondog labels – which are presented here alongside selected tracks from his albums for Epic and Prestige, also of similar vintage. Nearly all the tracks here offer a very primitive blend of percussion that's sometimes mixed with unusual woodwind or stringed instruments – nearly all of Moondog's own invention – and the package also features some great notes on his long career, plus some photos that are as gripping as the music itself! Titles include "Down Is Up", "Big Cat", "Bumbo", "Rimshot", "Rabbit Hop", "Instrumental Round", "Be A Hobo", "Dog Trot", "Oasis", "2 W 46th Street", and "Why Spend The Dark Night With You".

Plastic CloudPlastic Cloud ... LP
Void (Canada), 1968. Very Good+ (reissue)... $11.99
A legendary set from the Canadian 60s underground – a landmark record from a group who've gone onto become huge over the years with psych collectors, even though they never cracked the charts (or the US market) at the time! The set's way more than just another obscure rock release – as it's got a sharpness, tightness, and sense of songcraft that matches some of the bigger names in the US scene at the time – put together with a style that knows when to open up, but never loses itself in self-indulgence either. There's some surprisingly strong harmonies throughout the tunes – which often have a fuzzy, rollicking edge, but without losing sight of the sunny groove – and titles include "Epistle To Paradise", "Shadows Of Your Mind", "Art's A Happy Man", "Bridge Under A Sky", the epic centerpiece "You Don't Care", "Face Behind The Sun", "Dainty General Rides", and "Civilization Machine". LP, Vinyl record album

Sun RaSpace Probe – A Tonal View Of Times Tomorrow, Vol 1 (includes unissued tracks) ... CD
Saturn/Art Yard, 1974. New Copy Gatefold ... $15.99 16.99
The rare Space Probe sent out to the cosmos by Sun Ra in the mid 70s – with material recorded from the early 60s onward – the heart of it being Sun Ra's first ever recordings on a moog synthesizer in 1969, and it's one heck of a trip! This excellent edition on Art Yard includes the material from the original Saturn release – the epic, nearly 18 minute interstellar trip that is the title track – with Sun Ra crafting hallucinatory moog magic throughout it. He shifts gears on "Earth Primitive Earth" (the complete version), an earlier recording, as much influenced by ancient sounds as futuristic ones, with hand drums for the beat and bass clarinet by John Gilmore. The closing "Conversion Of JP" is the other holdover from the earlier Space Probe LP and it's another gem steeped in primitivism, believed to feature Marshall Allen on flute (sure sounds like him to us). Art Yard includes some really incredible unissued material here from sessions that produced the Secrets Of The Sun and When Sun Comes Out sets – titles including "Solar Symbols II", "Dance Of The Wind", "Recollections Of There" and "Destiny". Other players include James Jacson on log drums, Nimrod Hunt on hand drums and vocalist Thea Barbara. CD

RamonesRamones Mania ... CD
Reprise, Late 70s-Mid 80s. Used ... $3.99
Just when The Ramones were fading into cultural oblivion in the mid 80s – despite being the defining NYC punk band and a group that distilled the previous couple decades of the best and fiercest rock & roll into their own influential blasts – this epic compilation brought about their first and only gold record. Hey ho to Ramones Mania for bringing the boys to the kids of the 80s and cementing their legendary reputation! Includes the best of the early classics and also the most tolerable of their 80s efforts to this point: "I Wanna Be Sedated", "Teenage Labotomy", "Sheena Is A Punk Rocker", "We're A Happy Family", "Bonzo Goes To Bitburg", "Psycho Therapy", "Rock N Roll High School" and many more.

Lou ReedBerlin ... LP
RCA, 1973. Near Mint- ... $19.99
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. LP, Vinyl record album
(Orange label pressing, including the booklet.)
