Horace TapscottLighthouse 79 – Vol 2 ... CD
Nimbus, 1979. New Copy ... $12.99
A second unearthed gem from pianist Horace Tapscott at the Lighthouse club in 1979 – very sharp stuff featuring a solid group of Nimbus players! Volume 2 was recorded on October 11, appropriately the night after the set featured on Lighthouse 79 Vol 1, with Tapscott leading the way, and setting up a groove with on the piano, while the group pounces when ready The players are Reggie Bullen on trumpet, Gary Bias on alto, Roberto Miranda and David Bryant on bass, and George Goldsmith on drums. It's an impeccable balance of subtle, slow building melodicism and sharp, emphatic group play & soloing! Totally great stuff, and absolutely worth a second helping. Titles include "Acirfa", "Niger's Theme", the epic "Stella By Starlight", "Lush Life" (at 6+ minutes, the only number in the set that runs less than 10 minutes) and "Inspiration Of Silence". CD
(Comes in a slim cardboard sleeve.)

TortoiseMillions Now Living Will Never Die (180 gram pressing – with download) ... LP
Thrill Jockey, 1996. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99 25.99
Essential early-ish Tortoise – and among their best records ever! The bassy, heavily rhythmic aspect of their earlier recordings is as well intact and distinctive as it was on the benchmark self-titled album and earlier singles, but the group really branches out here and incorporates many more diverse elements. The 20+ minute opener "Djed" is as incredible as ever, starting with that brilliant bass line and some staticy effects, which is compelling enough, but soon the drums and organ kick in and it becomes what might be post rock's most epic instrumental anthem. The shorter tracks are hardly less vital. "A Survey", "The Taut And Tame", "Dear Grandma And Grandpa", "Glass Museum" and "Along The Banks Of Rivers". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes download.)

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

Wicked LadyComplete Recordings 1969 to 1972 (4LP set) ... LP
Guerssen (Spain), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 4 LPs ... $122.99
A massive package of work from this legendary group – one that features 2LP versions of both of their albums – plus a big book, a badge, a patch, a totebag, postcard, and special limited box! The set is filled with wicked post-psychedelic rock from Wicked Lady – pre-metal heaviness that balances fuzzy guitars and trudging rhythms with a killer groove! The guitars are epic – with swirling psych-indebted fuzz and trudging, Sabbath-y riffs – and a hell of a lot of power, too – and what's great about the group is the way they carry the influences of both late 60s psych and early 70s proto-metal, while skirting the cliches of both. The whole thing sounds great – and it's the kind of thing that still makes waves in underground rock – even decades later! Box is limited to 500 copies – and features the 2LP versions of The Axeman Cometh and Psychotic Overkill – plus all the other goodies. LP, Vinyl record album
(Deluxe box limited to 500 copies.)

Bob Wilber with Clark TerryBlowin The Blues Away ... LP
Classic Jazz, 1961. Very Good+ ... $14.99
A hip little session from tenorist Bob Wilber – a player who could often play trad, but who hits a nicely swinging groove here in the company of trumpeter Clark Terry! The set's got a simple, unadorned feel that really brings out the best in both players – echoes of bluesy roots from years past, but more of a 60s swing overall – in ways that are similar to some of the best old-meets-new jazz sides of the time on labels like Columbia or Epic. Terry's horn is really a treat in the setting, but so is Wilber – and the album's one that definitely has us re-assessing his talents in a positive way. Other group members include Dick Wellstood on piano, George Duvivier on bass, and Panama Francis on drums – and Terry sings on one track. Titles include "After Midnight", "Soulful Serenade", "Basie Eyes", "The Maryland Farmer", "Baptist Blues", "Where Will I Go", and "Blue Rhumba". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some edge wear.)

Phil Woods QuartetPhil Talks With Quill (Jazz Odyssey pressing) ... LP
Columbia, 1957. Near Mint- ... $2.99
An incredible meeting of two vastly underrated alto talents! Phil Woods got plenty of opportunities to record as a leader in the 50s, but altoist Gene Quill was often buried in bigger groups – a fact that makes this album one of the few chances to really hear him shine! Woods and Quill work together beautifully throughout – playing boppishly, but also in a more relaxed groove – one that's a bit like Phil's excellent Warm Woods session for Epic from the same stretch, but perhaps a bit more upbeat overall. The twin-alto sound is really great – especially on the tunes that have them soaring together on the heads, then splitting off on solos with amazing dexterity and real dynamic range. Other players include Bob Corwin on piano, Sonny Dallas on bass, and Nick Stabulas on drums – and although the pair recorded an earlier session for RCA a few years before, this one's far superior! Titles include "Doxy", "Scrapple From the Apple", "Hymn For Kim", and "Night In Tunisia". LP, Vinyl record album
(Jazz Odyssey pressing from 1980.)

Various20 Years Of Henry Street – The Definitive Collection (3LP set) ... LP
Henry Street/BBE (UK), 1990s/2000s. New Copy 3 LPs Gatefold ... $25.99 26.99
20 years of inventive, profoundly soul and funk infused, floor shaking dance music from Henry Street Music – given a top shelf anniversary showcase in conjunction with BBE! Since first breaking ground in the mid 90s, Henry Street has been there for some of best dancefloor guru's of their day, including Todd Terry, DJ Duke, Armand Van Helden, DJ Sneak, Kenny Dope, and Johnick to name but a few – with classic house rooted, but future ready grooves that stand the test the test of time. These tracks will continue to rock dancefloors until the end of days! The 3LP set includes 11 standout jams from the epic 5CD box set, with "The Bomb" (Kenny Dope Presents The Bucketheads 2), "The Funk Phenomena" (Armand Van Heldon Presents Old School Junkies), "Play The World by Jonick, "Snow Me The Way" (DK Sneak Presents The Polyester EP), "Walk 4 Me" (Robbie Tronco Presents Tronco Traxx), "Feelin' It (Rhythm Section Main Mix)" by Groove Culture feat Arnold Jarvis, "Feel The Thunder (Tommy Musto Mix)" by Stron Jay, "Byrdman's Revenge" (Mike Delgado PresentsThe Upstairs Lounge), "Like That" (Mike Rizzo Presents Tiger Blood, "Steal Your Love" by BQE and "D2-D2 (Timmy Register Shelter Mix)" by DJ Duke/Roland Clark.

Manuel GottschingInventions For Electric Guitar ... LP
OMM/MG Art (Germany), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... About May 27, 2016
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

Guru GuruUFO (turquoise vinyl pressing) ... LP
Ohr/Play Loud (Germany), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... About April 20, 2016 (delayed)
Early Krautrock hugeness from Guru Guru – their epic debut album UFO from the dawn of the 70s! Guru Guru's early stuff seared pretty nicely with fuzzed out psychedelic guitar – with tight bass lines and lumbering rhythms that keep out from spazzing out too far. Incredible work, just noisy enough, and a mighty early signifier of uncompromising creativity to come in the German art rock scene. The tracks are all on the the longish side, running from nearly 6 minutes north of 10 minutes on the title track – and other titles include "Stone In", "Girl Call", "Next Time See You At The Dalai Lhama", and "Der LSD – Marsch".

Rose RoyceStronger Than Ever (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Epic/Big Break (UK), 1982. New Copy ... On May 6, 2016
Rose Royce are certainly plenty strong at this point in their career – working with a tight modern soul groove on Epic Records – away from their previous placement on the Whitfield label, even though Norman Whitfield's still very actively handling production here! The album does a great job of bringing out some of the group's warmer elements, and also refits their rhythms a bit for the 80s generation – using some jazzier flourishes on the keyboards, which class things up nicely, and push their sound a bit towards some of the best Columbia/Epic soul acts of the time. Keyboards dominate a bit more than before, but in a good way – and titles include "Best Love", "Sometimesy Lady", "Still In Love", "You Blew It", "Talk To Me", "Fire In The Funk" and "Somehow We Made It Through The Rain". This remastered edition from Big Break UK includes 4 bonus versions: "Best Love (12" Version)", "Still In Love (Single Version)"< "Fire In The Funk (Single Version)" and "Dance With Me (12" Version)".

✨✧ De La SoulDe La Soul Is Dead ... CD
Tommy Boy, 1991. Used ... Just Sold Out!
The epic second De La Soul album – a slightly deeper record than the upbeat 3 Feet High And Rising, but to us it's just as irrefutably classic – and among the best hip hop full lengths ever! The trio is still working with Prince Paul, so despite the cover image and declaration of the end of the Daisy age, there's no shortage of humor and bouncing good time hip hop – if a turn tougher. To put it simply, this is one of the many reasons we look a the early 90s as the salad days of hip hop. With "Oodles Of O's", Talkin' Bout Hey Love", "A Roller Skating Jam Named Saturdays", "Millie Pulled A Pistol On Santa", "Ring Ring Ring (Ha Ha Hey)", "Keepin' The Faith", "Bitties In The BK Lounge", "Pass The Plugs" and, as was the style at the time, loads of funny skits.

✨✧ BandRock Of Ages – The Band In Concert ... LP
Capitol, 1972. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The Band's epic double live album from '72, when they were at their peak – arguably a more exciting listening experience than even their best studio albums, which they always (wisely) considered a different universe then the live stage. Ever ambitious, The Band commissioned Allen Toussaint, one of their heroes to compose some horn arrangements, which indeed sound great – and the band is in such great form here – they're an unbelievably tight unit, but it never sounds slick or manicured. Perfection! Includes "Don't Do It", "King Harvest", "Caledonia Mission", "Get Up Jake", "Stage Fright", "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down", "This Wheel's On Fire", "The Weight", "Life Is A Carnival" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ David BowieBlackstar ... LP
ISO/Columbia, 2016. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
David Bowie's late career peak arrived just days before he left us! The preceding record The Next Day was a solid reminder of Bowie at his fuzz guitar-graced 70s best, while still standing firm in the here-and-now, yet we still sort of wished for more creatively daring work. Here it is! Once again, Bowie co-produces with Tony Visconti, but it's clear from the start that they're going for something deeper and more complex. Chilling bits of strings, keyboards and sputtering beats begin the epic title track, before Bowie's voice comes in like a spirtual guide – approaching Scott Walker territory here – augmented by sax and other cool touches. It's an amazing start to an unpredictable set of songs, each as hypnotic as the one before. The stranger vibe of the opener comes in and out as the album plays on, but there's some fuzzier and heavier bits, too – on songs that are enigmatic and anthemic, arty and accessible. Incredible! Other titles include '"Tis A Pity, She Was A Whore", "Lazarus", "Sue (Or In A Season Of Crime)", "Girl Loves Me", "Dollar Days" and "I Can't Give Everything Away". LP, Vinyl record album
(180 gram vinyl, with just a few marks.)

Hallelujah (Italy), 1971. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The immortal acid prog debut of Brainticket – 2 rides on 2 sides as tripped at as any at the time – done with a driving groove that never spirals too far off the grid! The album features 2 shorter jams to kick it off before the gargantuan "Brainticket" that fills a side and a half – setting the course in something of a funk rock mode with a killer drums, grooving organ and trippy guitars. Dawn Muir's voice brings an otherworldly narrative, and this as one wild set of tripped out rock! Includes "Black Sand", "Places Of Light" and the 3 part epic that is "Brainticket".

The other stuff's even better, though – unreleased material arranged by Gigi Gryce, whose cool floating style is a perfect one for Betty's incredible voice. Titles include "Social Call", "Frenesi", "Runaway", "Thou Swell", "The Way You Look Tonight", and "Tell Him I Said Hello". LP, Vinyl record album
