✨✧ Willie ColonFantasmas ... CD
Fania, 1981. New Copy ... $12.99
A brilliant new move for Willie Colon – a set that goes even further than his mid 70s classics with Ruben Blades, and pushes Willie into a Pan-American consciousness carried off with ambitious musical vision! The sound is still salsa at the core, but Willie's also brought in bits of other South American influences – traces of styles from Columbia, Argentina, and most importantly Brazil – heard wonderfully on Willie's reading of Chico Buarque's excellent "Oh Que Sera"! The backings are full, and sometimes have large orchestrations – and the vocals are both proud yet somehow fragile at the same time. Titles include "Oh, Que Sera?", "Mi Sueno", "Celo", "Amor Verdadero", "Al Dormir", "Toma Mis Manos", and "Sueno De Papelote". CD

Piero UmilianiL'Uomo Nello Spazio (transparent clear water vinyl pressing) ... LP
Omicron/Dagored (Italy), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
One of the weirdest, wildest albums we've ever heard from the great Piero Umiliani – an all-electronic set, but one that's even more freewheeling than his famous To-Day's Sound record! The music is all played by Piero on his own electronic setup – with terms under the tunes like "pulsating", "hallucinations", "in the space", "primordial life", and "cosmic anguish" – all of which really give you an idea of the vibe he's going for here! The sound is sometimes dark, but hardly ever too noisy – and as with Umiliani's soundtrack material, the level of composition and performance is extremely thoughtful, and full of surprises – that strong sense of delight that makes us go back to Piero's records again and again over the years. Titles include "Polvere Cosmica", "Nello Spazio", "Approdo Lunare", "Pulsando", "Addio Alla Terra", "Nell'Ombra Di Plutone", and "Asteroide Fantasma". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousMusic From Planet Earth – A Soundway Collection ... CD
Soundway, 2014. New Copy ... $6.99 7.98
Music from planet earth – but a special side of the planet that's under the sway of Soundway Records – who've been creating some really great music of their own in recent years! Soundway is a label we mostly know for reissues of older Afro Funk – but they've also moved into a mode that has them working with key contemporary artists as well – especially those who have a great ear for forging global elements with more modern production styles – to create the sort of rich sounds you'll hear on this bargain-priced set! The 13-track CD is a great way to sample some of the more adventurous Soundway titles of recent years – and titles include "Luxo" by Batida, "Let's Dance" by Ibibio Sound Machine", "Are You Coming With Us" by Pinch, "Floor Excitement VIP" by The Busy Twist, "Sefty Belt" by Fantasma, "Airbourne" by Drumtalk, "Guaracha UFO" by Meridian Brothers, "Yapeyu" by My Panda Shall Fly, "Gban Gban Lewa" by Weird Together, and "Same Old Clown" by Chico Mann.

VariousRough Guide To Psychedelic Salsa ... CD
Rough Guide, Late 60s/2015. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
Tripped-out Latin sounds, both classic and contemporary – served up in a collection that bristles with excitement throughout! The initial wave of this music came from a late 60s stretch when the cats up in Harlem were getting a bit more freewheeling than usual – picking up not just the funky touches of the Latin Soul years, but also some big influences from the rock underground as well – which were mixed in with heavy percussion and jazzy riffs to create a whole new groove! And while this side of Latin music was quickly suppressed in the generation that followed, it's had a bit resurgence in recent years – as you'll here from some of the younger artists in the collection, who fit perfectly into the track selection. Titles include "Cannabis" by Los Pambele, "Recordando Los Soneros" by Ray Perez, "El Son Del Carangano" by Fruky Y Sus Tesos, "Naci De La Rumba Y Guaguanco" by Grupo Fantasma with Larry Harlow, "Dub Y Guaguanco" by Quantic, "Vamos Pa Dakar" by Orchestra Rytmo Africa Cubana, and "Londres" by Nelson Y Sus Estrellas.

✨✧ Ivan LinsNovo Tempo ... CD
EMI/Odeon (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautiful album by Ivan Lins – truly one of his greatest records, and a real gem that stands out as one of the best in his already-excellent catalog! The set has Ivan stepping out strongly from his sound of the 70s – working with Gilson Peranzzetta in a set of arrangements that have touches of jazz and a deeply expressive soul that matches Lins' growing vocal confidence wonderfully. Lins' voice is in top form, and the material is extremely strong (in fact, most of the songs are so good, and so catchy, that we've hardly noticed that they weren't in English!) Titles include "Vira", "Arlequim Desconhecido", "Barco Fantasma", "Novo Tempo", and "Coracao Vagabundo". CD

✨✧ Ennio MorriconeIl Buono, Il Brutto, Il Cattivo (The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly) ... CD
GDM (Italy), 1966. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the first big moments of global fame for the legendary Ennio Morricone – and a record that still stands as one of his landmark albums all these many years later! The set's famous for its haunting theme – that "wah-wah-wah" melody that led to countless covers and samples over the years – but the whole thing's a lot more complex than just that tune – with lots of the same sense of space and brooding that Morricone brought to his music for Once Upon A Time In The West – with careful use of key instruments on a track by track basis, and these floating lines that almost signaled a whole new way of recording music for a film soundtrack. And yes, there's certainly key western elements like guitar or harmonica – but maybe more striking are all the points at which these obvious tropes disappear – to leave us with those really unique Morricone sounds that go way beyond music! Titles include "Insequimento", "Il Deserto", "Il Bandito Monco", "Fine Di Una Spia", "Marcetta", "Padre Ramirez", and "La Carrozza Dei Fantasmi". CD

✨✧ Brigitte FontaineDevaste Moi (aka 13 Chansons Decadentes Et Fantasmagoniques) ... CD
Jacques Canetti/Because (France), 1966. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The roots of Brigitte Fontaine – and a really wonderful record that we love every bit as her later work – but in a completely different way! The style here is more strikingly jazzy in the territory of early 60s Serge Gainsbourg or Jacques Brel – and the lyrics are mostly all by Brigitte, but with some key collaborators too – set to these sublime jazz backings by Jimmy Walter, who brings in loads of great instrumental touches to illuminate the words! The style is light years from more commercial French pop of the time – as are the lyrics – and Fontaine's got a richer, fuller style of singing that's quite different than her later breathy modes – but one that's equally great. Titles include "Le Mauvais Coton", "Devaste Moi", "Hallucinante Aventure", "C'Est Pas De Ma Faute", "Je Suis Decadente", and "Le Train". CD

✨✧ Ennio Morricone & Gruppo D'Improvvisione NuovaQuiet Place In The Country (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Roundtable/Omni (Australia), 1968. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A rare collaboration between Italian soundtrack master Ennio Morricone and the always adventurous Gruppo D'Improvvisione Nuova! The film, starring Vanessa Redgrave and Franco Nero, mixes pulpy horror with artier surrealism – and the music here does an incredible job of conveying that musically. It's got these stark, moody passages with haunting wordless vocals, paired with busy bursts of avant noise. The sparer moments wouldn't feel out of place on other period soundtracks, but the way those play into the stranger orchestrations makes it a distinctively compelling piece of work! Includes "Fantasma", "Un Tranquillo Posto Di Campagna", "I Fantasma Di Wanda", "Frenesia", "L'Automobile Della Contessina", "I Sogni Dell'Artista", "Deliro Primo", "Un Amore Violento" and "Undici Violini". LP, Vinyl record album
(Beautiful limited edition reissue – with heavy cover, vinyl and inner sleeve – plus liner notes by Andy Votel.)
