McDonald & GilesMcDonald & Giles ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... Around April 8, 2015
An excellent psych/prog sidebar in the history of late 60s and early 70s British rock! Recorded not too long after the duo of McDonald & Giles left the original lineup of King Crimson, this set is a mellower affair, without too many of the hard rock pretensions of Crimson, and without too much of the epic grandiosity that would cluttered up some of their other contemporaries work. The numbers are still pretty lengthy, with lots of clever twist and turns, and enough production flourishes to please the heaviest prog-head, and the group features Steve Winwood and Peter Giles alongside the core duo of Ian McDonald and Michael Giles. Definitley up your alley if you like the rock band with flute thing – and the drums are amazing – very funky at times! Includes "Suite In C", "Flight Of The Ibis", "Is She Waiting", "Tomorrow's People The Children Of Today", and "Birdman". CD

✨✧ Jimi Hendrix ExperienceAxis Bold As Love (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Legacy, 1967. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Just Sold Out!

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

✨✧ James BrownHell ... CD
Polydor, 1974. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Reissue of 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 was originally 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!

✨✧ Ray BryantRay Bryant Plays (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Signature/EMI (Japan), 1959. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the most obscure albums ever by pianist Ray Bryant – a set recorded for the tiny Signature label in the years between his work with Epic and Columbia! The record's every bit as great as Ray's sides for bigger labels at the time – very soulful grooving in a stripped-down and lean trio mode, in a style that was making Ray very much the hip hit club act. The set list is a who's who of hip late 50s jazz standards – and the album includes versions of "Doodlin", "Whisper Not", "Walkin", "Bags Groove", "Delauney's Dilemma", and "Wheatleigh Hall" – all played with crackling soul jazz trio energy! CD

✨✧ Miles DavisGet Up With It ... LP
Columbia, 1974. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Miles Davis' last studio session before a few years of seclusion – and a really monumental effort, probably the baddest of the electric period! The album does a great job of capturing the energy of the frenzied live sets from that time, and matching it with Teo Macero's cut and paste editing, and wizardry at the mixing console. The side long piece "He Loved Him Madly" is a minimalist epic, while "Calypso Frelimo" alternates between mad afro-percussion driven jams and spacey wah-wah trumpet interludes. The rest of the album is divided up into more succinct shorter funky pieces, like classic "Rated X", with Miles basically just leaning on an electric organ over a hyper funk beat, and the bluesy "Honky Tonk" which opens with an incredibly funky burping electric piano break! LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear and seam splitting.)

✨✧ George DukeI Love The Blues, She Heard My Cry ... LP
MPS, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(US pressing. Cover has moderate wear, some staining and a split top seam.)

✨✧ Giant SandCover Magazine ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 2002. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Howe Gelb is back with the band in all of his loose, ragged glory after the considerably more groomed sound of 2000's masterpiece Chore Of Enchantment with this set of heavily reworked – or perhaps more accurately, unraveled covers. Cover Magazine starts out with a haunting hybrid of Marty Robbin's "El Paso" and Neil Young's "Out On The Weekend", followed by a spare version of X's "Johnny Hit And Run Pauline" featuring only Howe on guitar and guest PJ Harvey's banshee wail of the chorus. Black Sabbath's "Ironman" is interpreted here as a mournful ballad augmented by congas, trumpet, piano, and perpetually running water (?). Howe is beautifully backed up on "Wayfaring Stranger" by Chicago chanteuses Neko Case & Kelly Hogan, and the core rhythmic backbone of Joe Burns & John Convertino, aka Calexico, remain the Sand's deadly weapon just as they have for the past ten or so years. Howe is now clearly trying to enjoy himself in his music after a couple of emotionally tumultuous releases following the loss of longtime friend and collaborator Rainer Ptacek to cancer, and the result is a much less weighty gem of a record – as prickly and heavily dusted as the Arizona desert it was born in. Other tracks include two groovy versions of Sonny & Cher's "The Beat Goes On", Johnny Cash's "I'm Leaving Now (Adios)", Goldfrapp's "Human", Nick Cave's "Red Right Hand", Roger Miller's "King Of The Road", an epic, feedback drenched version of Gelb's own "Blue Marble Girl", and Ptacek's "Inner Flame", both featuring members of Grandaddy.

✨✧ Sergius Golowin with the Cosmic JokersLord Krishna Von Goloka ... CD
Lion, Early 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ PrinceSign O The Times ... LP
Paisley Park/Warner, 1987. Used 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 sleeve. Cover has some wear.)

✨✧ RainbowLong Live Rock 'N 'Roll ... LP
Polydor, 1978. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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
(Cover has a cut corner and some wear.)

Nimbus, 1979. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A second unearthed gem from pianist Horace Tapscott at the Lighthouse club in 1979 – very sharp stuff featuring a solid group of Nimbus players!

✨✧ Wee GeeHold On (To Your Dreams) ... LP
Cotillion, 1980. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great smooth soul from Wee Gee – a wonderful little record from the dawn of the 80s! The album's a great one, thanks largely to Vernon Bullock, who wrote, arranged, and produced with that uptempo modern style that he brought to his best work of the 70s. The soaring title track is a 10+ minute epic that really transcends – hitting an emotional groove early and holding it throughout – and the rest of the tunes are just as nice! Wee Gee's a pretty decent vocalist – and the lofty arrangements keep him in the groove in a mode that's similar to some of Lamont Dozier's best work. The keys and synthesizers are nice – never oversteeped in ways that mired modern soul later in the decade and they go very will with the larger arrangements! Titles include "Hold On (To Your Dreams)", "Let Me Lay With You", "You've Been A Part Of Me", "Remember The Love", and "Don't Make Me The Reason". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear and a center split on the spine.)

✨✧ CommodoresMachine Gun ... CD
Motown (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Lionel Richie come back! All is forgiven! We'd said bad things about you for years until we heard this funky groover – The Commodores' first album, a tasty bit of funk that almost makes us want to forgive you for all of your later crimes! The whole thing's pretty funky all the way through – with a strong southern groove, touched with a bit of a Sly Stone party funk mode. Includes the killer break classic "The Assembly Line", which feels like it was lifted right off one of Sly's late 60s albums for Epic – plus "The Bump", "Machine Gun", "The Zoo", and "Gonna Blow Your Mind". Arrangements are by James Carmichael and Gloria Jones, who also did the production – and the album's a long way from "Three Times A Lady", trust us! CD

✨✧ Dam-FunkToeachizown Vol 2 – Fly ... LP
Stones Throw, 2009. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Galactic funk & synth soul from Dam-Funk – his epic full length debut Toeachizown for Stones Throw – and a record that should be a game changer for the southern Cali ambassador of cosmic funk beats, heavy bass and synth grooves! Dam-Funk is part throwback to the electro era – his vintage synths, bass and drum machine grooves are strongly rooted in the end of the 70s and first few years of the 80s vibe, but he's putting his own modern spin on the sounds, keeping it vital and fresh, and quite likely to be bitten by a bevy of superstar producers to come! Occasionally with slow jam or tripped out vocals, but with longer instrumental jams, Dam Funk's fusion of old school and future funk is in a cosmic realm of its own! Vinyl version was originally released as a 5LP set – and now it's available in separate volumes. Vol 2 includes: "Flying V Ride", "Candy Danciin'" feat Mark De Clive-Lowe, "Burn Straight Thru U", "10 West", "I Wanna Know" and "Rollin'". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Herb Ellis & Stuff SmithTogether ... CD
Koch, 1963. Used ... Out Of Stock
Strings are king in this rare set from guitarist Herb Ellis and jazz violinist Stuff Smith – a date that's possibly more on Stuff's side of the spectrum, but which comes during a short by great run of Ellis work for Epic in the early 60s! Tracks are longer than you might expect – especially for a Smith session – with an open feel that's got an almost Verve-like energy. Ellis gets some great open solos on the date, and Stuff vocalizes on two tracks in this cool raspy way – and titles include "Skip It", "Blues For Janet", "Get Acquainted Blues", and "Hillcrest". CD
