✨✧ Antonio Carlos Jobim & Luiz BonfaBlack Orpheus – Original Soundtrack (Epic) ... LP
Epic, Early 60s. Very Good ... $7.99
One of the greatest soundtracks ever – a record that set a whole new standard for audio representation of a film! The mad music for the set was composed by Antonio Carlos Jobim, with lyrics by Vincius De Moraes – and performed by Luiz Bonfa on guitar – but despite such prime bossa pedigree, the whole thing's got a sound that goes way beyond the familiar – a crazy mix of batucada percussion, samba rhythms, bossa guitar, and loads of sound effects from the film – so much so that the first half of the record is almost a sound-for-sound replication of the first 20 minutes of the movie! The sound collage is amazing – an extremely unique approach to soundtrack representation, and one that's never been done so beautifully since. A truly breathtaking record, filled with mindblowing sounds – and an early example of the genius that would explode in 60s music in Brazil. Some key bossa classics are represented here in early versions – including "Felicidade", "O Nosso Amor", and "Manha De Carnaval" – but they're wrapped up in odd sounds and rhythms that really make them sound different! LP, Vinyl record album
(Later yellow label Epic/CBS pressing.)

Kamasi WashingtonEpic (3LP set) ... LP
Brainfeeder, 2015. New Copy 3LP ... $38.99 39.99
A modern day spiritual jazz treasure – completely wonderful all the way through, and a set you might well file proudly next to your classics from John Coltrane and Pharoah Sanders! The record's as epic as it promises in the title – a three volume journey in jazz, headed by tenorist Kamai Washington, who emerges here as a tremendous leader, a hell of a writer, and a rich jazz talent in every sense of the word – carefully steering a group of musicians through work that's searing, searching, and driven with a very cosmic vibe! Tunes are often modal, and never step too far outside, but always push the boundaries – and the instrumentation is a shifting mix of keyboards, piano, trombone, trumpet, bass, drums, and percussion – plus some vocal performances from Dwight Trible and Patrice Quinn. You might know Kamasi from his work with Flying Lotus and Thundercat – the latter of whom plays bass on this set – but the album's very much his own, and very much jazz all the way through. The kind of record we're mighty proud to be offering – with tracks that include "Askim", "The Next Step", "Rhythm Changes", "Miss Understanding", "Leroy & Lanisha", "Re Run", "Seven Prayers", "Malcolm's Theme", and "The Message". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Epic SoundtracksRise Above ... LP
Bar None/Mapache, 1994. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of those records that came out of left field when it was released – yet managed to take a very tiny slice of the underground by storm! Epic Soundtracks is no stranger to indie scenes – having been an important member of Swell Maps during the late 70s UK punk years, and working with Crime & The City Solution on some great records during the 80s – but this solo debut is something else entirely – a set that draws on an older, more personal singer/songwriter tradition, and which shows a side of Soundtracks that's surprisingly heartfelt, maybe even optimistic – although the whole thing's still got a darkness that reminds us of the solo work by his brother, Nikki Sudden – but with piano as the dominant instrument, not guitar. Titles include "Everybody Else Is Wrong", "I Feel Good", "Big Apple Graveyard", "I Don't Know", "Meet Me On The Beach", and "She Sleeps Alone". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Epic SoundtracksSleeping Star ... LP
Mapache, 1994. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A really beautiful album from Epic Soundtracks – and one of those records that really helped define the deeply personal sound of his solo work! Epic here is even more stripped-down and open than in his work with Swell Maps and Crime & The City Solution – singing in this dark, moody style on tunes that are mostly spare, and recorded with this "middle of the night" vibe that's completely mesmerizing! Soundtracks was listening to a lot of Laura Nyro at the time – and you can hear it in the way that he puts the tunes across – yet his approach is that dark side of Nyro that never made it to record, with a mode that's like one of the underground early 70s singer/songwriters, but after they'd survived the punk years and beyond. Titles include "Tonight's The Night", "Waiting For The Train", "There's Been A Change", "Don't Go To School", "Hear The Whistle Blow", and "Tired Eyes". LP, Vinyl record album
(First time on vinyl!)

Nancy AmesLatin Pulse ... LP
Epic, Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Nancy sings some sweet Latin groovers in Spanish – backed by groovy 60s arrangements from Joe Sherman! The feel here isn't quite as driving as on her classic "Mas Que Nada" album – but it does have a similar style – sort of blending easy 60s vocals with swinging pop Latin rhythms, all in a style that's pretty darn groovy, especially on the upbeat numbers! Tracks include Spanish versions of "Yesterday", "That Kiss", "A Taste Of Honey", "Call Me", and "Shadow Of Your Smile". LP, Vinyl record album

Badings/RaaijmakersCapriccio For Violin & Two Soundtracks/GeneseEvolution – Ballet Suite/Contrasts ... LP
Epic, Late 50s. Near Mint- ... $34.99
An excellent album of spare, early electronics – performed on a range of apparati that include "noise generator", sine wave generators, pulse generators, audio-frequency oscillators, and concrete sound sources. Works include "Evolutions", "Genese", "Contrasts", and "Capriccio" – and the album's got a very spooky tone! LP, Vinyl record album

Bunny BeriganTake It Bunny ... LP
Epic, Mid 30s/1955. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Classic 30s work from trumpeter Bunny Berigan – served up here in a great 50s LP package that showcases his talents on the horn! There's a warmth and raspy charm to these sides that instantly shows why Berigan was a standout player at the time – an artist who could hit the hard notes with the frenzy of any of his competitors, but also an entertainer who was willing to step back and personalize (and vocalize) things when needed. Players on the tunes include many who would go onto lead their own groups – Artie Shaw, Jack Teagarden, Claude Thornhill, and others – and titles include "I Can't Get Started With You", "Solo Hop", "Dixieland Shuffle", "It's Been So Long", "Let Yourself Go", "If I Had My Way", "I'd Rather Lead A Band", and "A Melody From The Sky".

Big Grams (Big Boi & Phantogram)Big Grams (180 gram pressing – with download) ... LP
Epic, 2015. New Copy ... $16.99
Adventurous ATL hip hop veteran Big Boi teams up with NYC electro pop duo Phantogram as Big Grams! Big Boi has never lacked for creative ambition – his one time repuation as the straighter-laced half of Outkast sold him short back in the day – as he always had a incredible way of adapting his flow, phrasing and lyrical focus to a diverse range of production styles. Big Grams finds a nice middle ground between Phantogram's bright, melodic synth pop style and the more beat heavy needs of a dexterous MC. Sarah Barthel's lovely vocals as sweet as ever, and work suprisingly well when paired with Big Boi's distinctive rhymes. Titles include "Run For Your Life", "Lights On", "Fell In The Sun", "Put It On Her", "Goldmine Junkie", "Born To Shine" with Run The Jewels and "Drum Machine" with Skrillex. LP, Vinyl record album

Cane & AbleRelating A Message To You ... LP
Epic, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $5.99
The second album by this great French funk collective! The album's tighter than the group's first one – with lots of wah-wah guitar jamming, spaced out production, and some excellent soul vocals that must have been some of the best recorded in Paris in the 70s! The whole thing sparkles like a rare American funk album on an indie label from the same time – and it's filled with loads of great tracks like "Sweet Burn", "Stoned Groove", "No Time", "Be Free", and "Mass of Confusion", a nice long funky track.

Cheap TrickAt Budokan ... LP
Epic, 1978. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $7.99
A seminal set from Cheap Trick – a group who had already cut some excellent studio albums before this one, but who somehow finally reached huge fame in the mainstream with this classic concert release! The album is one of the greatest, most iconic live rock records of its era – in which the to that point under-appreciated Cheap Trick (in the US at least – as you can hear the wild screams, they had the love elsewhere) midwestern powerpop progenitors FINALLY broke through and cemented their legend!

The album is one of the greatest, most iconic live rock records of its era – in which the to that point under-appreciated Cheap Trick (in the US at least – as you can hear the wild screams, they had the love elsewhere) midwestern powerpop progenitors FINALLY broke through and cemented their legend! As great as the original live album was (and still is), it always felt truncated, and it was – until this long-waited complete concert was released! Most of the greatest cuts from the first few albums are represented, including "Come On, Come On", "I Want You To Want Me" (of course!), "Big Eyes", "ELO Kiddies", "Need Your Love", "High Roller", "Auf Wiedersehen", "California Man", "Surrender" and more.

The original 10 inch pressing of this great collection of singles, b-sides and various odds and ends, pulled together in the middle peak of the Clash's career! Black Market Clash holds up incredibly well – it's blazing stuff recorded from '77 to '80 and issued to start that decade. 9 numbers in all, including "Capital Radio One", "The Prisoner", "Pressure Drop", "Cheat", "City Of The Dead", "Time Is Tight", "Bank Robber/Robber Dub", "Armagideon Time" and "Justice Tonight/Kick It Over".

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".

DonovanHurdy Gurdy Man (mono pressing) ... LP
Epic/Sundazed, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99 28.98
The rare mono mix of Hurdy Gurdy Man – easily one of the headiest Donovan albums of the 60s – a record that moves past the simple psychedelic pop of earlier hits, and into a range of mind-expanding themes and styles! There's a cerebral quality here that seems to take hold even on the simpler, catchier tunes – a deeply introspective approach that has Donovan working in a world that's really all his own – less concerned with hit singles, and more focused on a personal journey in music, one that ties together many strands of music borrowed from Celtic, West Indian, jazz, and folk sources. Arrangers are John Cameron and John Paul Jones – and titles include "Get Thy Bearings", "Peregrine", "The Entertaining Of A Shy Girl", "West Indian Lady", "Jennifer Juniper", "Tangier", "The River Song", "The Sun Is A Very Magic Fellow", and "Hi It's Been A Long Time". LP, Vinyl record album
(Rare mono mix!)
