James BrownHell ... LP
Polydor, 1974. Very Good- 2LP Gatefold ... $29.99
JB's wildest album, with a crazy cover that shows him running away from the devil, and great gatefold inner photo with him standing amidst a bunch of declarations of "Hell". The record is a double album filled with lots of different styles from James' funky bag. Nicer bits include "My Thang", "Hell", and "A Man Has To Go Back To The Crossroads" – but the real highlight is the epic 13 minute version of "Papa Don't Take No Mess", as tight and jamming as any cut from Doin' It to Death or The Payback! LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover is in nice shape.)

✨✧ Jeff ChangCan't Stop Won't Stop – A History Of The Hip-Hop Generation (paperback) ... Book
Ebury Press (UK), 2005. New Copy ... $8.99 19.95
Jeff Chang's epic history of the cultural force of hip hop – one of the most acclaimed hip hop chronicles ever published – and well worth it! Chang has dug deeper for this book than any crate diggin' DJ ever could, and for that he deserves to take a deep bow. The book starts out documenting some of the game's roots in 60s Jamaica, and goes on to chronicle its genesis in the Bronx, and its many incarnations up until the the turn of the century. The cultural, political and social environments and eras in which the art was nurtured is chronicled by Chang without ever causing the reader to suffer from NPR-esque academic dryness (thank God), and really puts the reader into every tale he spins. IT's such a sprawling book that it's tough to recommend or describe in just a few words, but trust us, your library needs it! Paperback, 546 pages including notes, acknowledgments and index, well chosen quotes and photos, plus an introduction by legendary DJ Kool Herc! Book

John ColtraneOne Down, One Up – Live At The Half Note ... CD
Impulse, 1965. Used 2CDs ... $8.99
A long overdue testament to the live genius of the mighty John Coltrane Quartet – captured at the legendary Half Note club in NYC – disc 1 recorded on a date in March 1965 and disc 2 on a date in early May of the same year! The set finds Coltrane plus McCoy Tyner on piano, Jimmy Garrison on bass and Elvin Jones on the kit working in a far more adventurous guise than many of the 60s studio sessions – stretching out incredibly on the half hour epic workout "One Up, One Down" and a beautifully loose run of "Afro Blue". The stylistic themes are carried through similarly on the second disc's long grooving "Song Of Praise" and an amazing "My Favorite Things", but stretching near or past the 20 minute mark. These long bootlegged recordings are now available on CD officially for the first time ever – complete with the original radio introductions and announcements! CD

Miles DavisTribute To Jack Johnson (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1971. Used ... $12.99
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". CD

De La SoulAnd The Anonymous Nobody (with download) ... LP
AOI, 2016. New Copy 2LP ... $28.99
A major later career creative win for De La Soul – a mind-bogglingly diverse, frequently brilliant record that manages to rival their best early work in stylistic breadth! This one's an epic – a 17 track, nearly 70 minute opus that finds De La working with an eclectic group of collaborators on a project that finds them hinting at past glories – be it the laidback jazzy production of the immediate post-"D.A.I.S.Y Age" to their impressive, genre-defying collaborations with the Gorillaz and others – but it's very much a fresh effort with nary a whiff of nostalgia. It's a grower, too – a record you'll need to listen to a bunch of times to really get to the heart of it – and in a post-millennium age of instant gratification, you REALLY gotta hand it to Pos, Dave and Mase for defiantly making a true blue L(ong)P(layer) Titles include "Genesis" with Jill Scott, "Royalty Capes", "Nosed Up", "Pain" with Snoop Dogg, "Memory Of...(US)" with Estelle & Pete Rock, "Snoopies" with David Byrne, "Greyhounds" with Usher, "Drawn" with Little Dragon, "Whoodeeni" with 2Chainz, "Here In After" with Damon Albarn and more.

DJ ShadowEndtroducing (3CD deluxe edition) ... CD
Island, 1996. New Copy 3 CDs ... $39.99 49.98
Massive 20th Anniversary edition of DJ Shadow's masterpiece! It seems like when this came out, critics and even DJs liked to drop the then new moniker "trip hop" whenever possible, and this pivotal album is held up as the watershed mark. A number of years down the line, Endtroducing holds up stands the test of time as an instrumental hip hop LP, and even sort of an avant rock album – giving it a timeless feel that obliterates any trendy pigeonholes! Cinematic and epic in scope, this LP as much as anything else helped resurrect the career of David Axelrod (though some of us were hip to him all along) and Josh Davis is clearly a fellow traveler in the coloristic approach he uses – and never forgets the funk! This great 3CD edition includes the classic original album on Disc One – with "Building Steam With A Grain Of Salt", "The Number Song", "Changeling", "What Does Your Soul Look Like (pts 1 & 4)" and "Midnight In A Perfect World" – the bonus album Excessive Ephemera on Disc Two – and the all new (circa 2016) remix album Endtroducing Re-Emagined on Disc Three – with remixes by Adrian Younge, Lee Bannon,. Hudson Mohawke, Daedelus and others! CD

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".

Giovanni FuscoLa Guerra Di Troia/La Leggenda Di Enea ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1961/1962. Used 2 CDs ... $19.99
A double-Trojan spectacular – in this 2CD collection of Italian peplum soundtracks scored by Giovanni Fusco for films starring the mighty Steve Reeves! Both scores are somewhat similar – cast with full orchestrations to illustrate the epic themes of the classical tales, but often in ways that have some slightly exotic moments too – highlighting the more mythic moments in the films, as well as some of the more romantic ones. The work here marks a strong transitional moment for Italian cinema – as the orchestrated modes of the previous era come into play with some of the more stripped-down, instrument-focused sounds that would emerge even more strongly later in the 60s. 2CD set features great sound, images from both films, and a whopping 47 tracks, including a few bonus titles as well!

✨✧ Manuel GottschingInventions For Electric Guitar ... LP
OMM/MG Art (Germany), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
A wonderful electronic classic from Ash Ra Tempel founder Manuel Goettsching – a record that features nothing but his own guitar experiments, filtered through a variety of effects – but at a level that feels a lot more like a keyboard or analogue electronics workout overall! In fact, the record's maybe a wonderful distillation of the role that guitar played in so many of these great electronic sets from the German scene of the 70s – use of the instrument in ways that are completely different from American or British guitar, and with a great ear towards the more sensitive, longform aspects of the instrument – especially when combined with additional processing – yet all with a style that's a lot more subtle than Frippertronics. "Echo Waves" is a 17+ minute, uber-hypnotic piece that's another case of material living up to the title, one that reminds us a bit of some of Tangerine Dream's soundtrack work of a decade later. "Quasarsphere" is atmospheric and spacey, a shorter piece. "Pluralis" is the 20+ minute epic closer, very much akin to "Echo Waves". LP, Vinyl record album

Walter JacksonOkeh Recordings Vol 3 – Speak Her Name (with previously unreleased tracks) ... CD
Okeh/Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Unbelievably beautiful work – and possibly the greatest album ever from the mighty Walter Jackson! Jackson was one of the best singers to come out of the Chicago soul scene of the 60s, and his Okeh recordings are a perfect example of the city's sophisticated approach to Iceman soul – as perfected by Walter, Jerry Butler, and (later) Garland Green. The arrangements are by Riley Hampton, and they have a cold fragile beauty that lingers somewhere between a Scott Walker album and Riley's earlier work with Lorez Alexandria – and the no-filler selection of songs is one of Jackson's best ever– a range of work that really show his deep talents, and his maturing approach to a tune – proud, powerful, and a new level of adult sophistication in soul. Titles include the amazing title cut "Speak Her Name" – plus "Corner In The Sun", "My One Chance To Make It", "It's An Uphill Climb To The Bottom", and "Not You". This expanded CD makes the original album ever better – and adds in a full batch of 10 bonus tracks – some of which are unissued, others of which are rare singles from Jackson's later Okeh years, plus rare Epic sides. Bonus titles include "No Butterflies", "Ad Lib", "The Look Of Love", "The Bed", "Forget The Girl", "My Ship Is Coming In", "Road To Ruin", and "Just One Smile". CD

George JonesGeorge Jones Sings (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Southern Routes, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $7.99 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

Ennio MorriconeOnce Upon A Time In America ... CD
Mercury, 1983. Used ... $9.99
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

Neville BrothersAuthorized Bootleg – Warfield Theater, San Francisco 1989 ... CD
Hip-O Select, 1989. Used 2CD ... $11.99
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- ... $14.99
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".

✨✧ RainbowLong Live Rock 'N 'Roll ... LP
Polydor, 1978. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $9.99
Ronnie James Dio's final album fronting Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow – and one of the better albums from that 70s hard rock/proto metal behemoth! It's got 2 tracks per side, each with a shorter song and a more epic rocker – lumbering, catchy, and heavy rock that's a helluva lot of fun all these years later! Dio's at his 70s best here, too, before going all out with the sword-wielding macabre sagas, but the Rock God anthems were in full force with Rainbow. Includes "Lady Of The Lake", "Gates Of Babylon" The Shed (Subtle)" and "Rainbow Eyes". 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
