✨✧ LakesideShot Of Love/Rough Riders/Fantastic Voyage (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Solar/Robinsongs (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A trio of classic funky albums from Lakeside – with bonus tracks too! First up is Shot Of Love – Lakeside's first album for Solar – and the beginning of a very fruitful relationship for the band and the label! The record's a great one – cut long before the Solar funk sound had gotten cliched – and it includes a key early hit in the Solar sound, the band's "It's All The Way Live", a seven minute funky workout in the tight LA ensemble funk mode. Other tracks include "Given In To Love", "Time", "Visions Of My Mind", and "Shot Of Love". Rough Riders is a sweet second effort from Lakeside – Ohio funk given a sweet LA glow, thanks to the Solar Records power duo of Leon Sylvers and Dick Griffey! The Midwest/Cali bridge is perfect here – as there's lots of raw roots given a tight focus on the record – that move that not only made groups like Lakeside a key force in the evolution of funky soul at the end of the 70s, but also helped pave the way for a decade of music to come – and lots of later influence on hip hop as well! Titles include the super-funky "If You Like Our Music" – plus "Pull My Strings", "I Can't Get You Out Of My Head", "From 9:00 Until", "I'll Never Leave You", and "All In My Mind". Fantastic Voyage is a crowning achievement from Lakeside – one of the key albums to link Ohio funk roots with a smoother LA groove – all served up in a way that had limitless influence for years to come! Bass is definitely at the head of these arrangements, but there's plenty of great guitar too – riffing and scratching in a way that percolates the tunes wonderfully – keeping plenty of funk in the mix without falling into the too-uptight traps that sometimes mired other groups. But almost even better are the vocals – which are tight and well-placed – never an afterthought, but always a key part of the groove, thanks to plenty of great hooks that really send the tunes home! Titles include "Eveready Man", "Say Yes", "Strung Out", "Fantastic Voyage", "I Need You", and "Your Love Is On The One". CD package features bonus 7" mixes of "It's All The Way Live", "Pull My Strings", "From 9:00 Until", "Fantastic Voyage", and "Your Love Is On The One". CD

Fratello Joseph BassiCiao Amore (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Albore Jazz (Japan), 2018. New Copy ... $14.99
A trio record without any drums – which allows for really great interplay between the bass of Fratello Joseph Bassi, the piano of Domenico Sanna, and tenor of Max Ionata! We're used to hearing Ionata in a more snapping sort of session, but he's maybe even more compelling here – carving out some sharp, soulful lines next to the fantastic interplay between bass and piano, all given this warmth that will really have us paying a lot more attention to Bassi in the future! The depth of his tones are wonderful – never overplayed, but delivered with this stark, simple, almost economical mode that's a nice contrast to the more fluid, but equally colorful work of Sanna on piano. Titles include "Sno Pease", "Voyage", "I Know You Know", "Promenade", "Say No", "Ciro Chi", and "Giochi Di Luci". CD

✨✧ Three Ring CircusGroovin' On The Sunshine ... LP
RCA, 1968. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A weird bit of sunshine pop – with the unusual feature that side one of the album is vocal, and side two is instrumental! There's some wonderful backings on the set – almost in a Rotary Connection mode, with lots of strange production, echoey orchestrations, and a good mix of conventional instrumentation turned trippy, next to rockish influences on guitar. Very wild stuff, especially on the instrumentals – and with tracks that include "Fantastic Voyage", "Groovin On Sunshine", "So True", "Lovin Machine", and "I Can't Be Trusted". LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo pressing. Cover has a sticker on the front, & an ink stamp on the back. Label has a sticker.)

✨✧ FeltSeventeenth Century (aka Let The Snakes Crinkle Their Heads To Death) (CD/7 inch single box set – with poster, buttons, and gig flyers) ... CD
Creation/Cherry Red (UK), 1986. New Copy CD & 7 inch ... Out Of Stock
Brilliant – simply brilliant – work by Felt – an album recorded at a time when they should have gone for the hits, but pulled back to really work on their own creative vibe! The album is an instrumental one all the way through – unlike any of their others, all of which feature vocals – and it's got the quartet working in a melange of organ, electric piano, guitar, and percussion – crafting spare and thoughtful little tunes, all very short, and all working like little "song poems" in a plain, simple, and very subtle sense. Gone are the extended noodling bits of the early albums, and in their place are concise musical statements that are brilliantly delivered with a sound unlike anything else we can think of – at once evoking images of 60s use of organ and guitars, but at another, coming off with a sound that stretches back to the American heartland, and the dark days of early Europe. Titles include "The Palace", "Song For William S Harvey", "Ancient City Where I Lived", "Voyage To Illumination", and "Sapphire Mansions". A fantastic package – CD comes in a gatefold sleeve, packaged in a 7" box – which includes a picture sleeve version of the "Sunlight Bathed The Golden Glow" 7 inch single, 2 reproductions of gig flyers, a 2-sided wall poster, and 4 buttons – all with a sticker on the box that's signed by Lawrence! CD
(Flyers, buttons, and posters for each different CD/7" set are different too!)

Michel LegrandLes Demoiselles De Rochefort (Young Girls of Rochefort) (50th Anniversary 5CD set) ... CD
Universal (France), 1966. New Copy 5CD ... $21.99
A dream come true – a special 5CD box set, based around one of our favorite soundtracks ever – with a huge amount of added music! The core score is presented on CDs 1 and 2 – fantastic music from the film Les Demoiselles De Rochefort (aka Young Girls Of Rochefort) – a jazzy swinging ode to love found and love lost – all penned by the legendary Michel Legrand! The work was composed in collaboration with director Jacques Demy for his 1966 film of the same name – and, like the previous Demy/Legrand collaboration, Umbrellas Of Cherbourg, the movie's a story in song – one that has much of the dialogue presented as sung lyrics to the tunes. The mode takes off from a Hollywood musical style, and pushes the genre into territory that's much hipper, very French, and with a soaring approach that's filled with plenty of mod 60s jazz grooves. Legrand's genius has never sparkled so brightly – and his ability to interweave different themes, stories, and grooves is simply amazing! This double-length set presents the expanded original score – with many songs that were not on the original single version of the soundtrack, plus key bits of dialogue to help transition the tunes. Titles include "Chanson Des Jumelles", "Chanson De Delphine", "Nous Voyageons De Ville En Ville", "Chanson D'Andy", "La Femme Coupee En Morceaux", and "Marins Amis Amants Ou Maris". CD2 also features 11 more tracks – the Instrumental version of the score, directed by Legrand in 1966. CD3 features a beautiful English Language version – with the voices of Jackie Ward, Sue Allen, Earl Brown, and others – all singing English versions of the songs, done by Earl Brown and Julian More. CD4 features work tracks that are wonderful – many with just Legrand at the piano and singing lyrics, others with orchestral tracks – a total of 21 tracks in all. CD5 features remakes and other versions of songs from the film – done by Bud Shank, Chico & The Gypsies, Johnny Griffin, Phil Woods, Trotter Trio, Brigitte, Claude Parent, Bill Evans, Yuri Buenaventura, and others. The whole thing comes with a huge booklet of notes – with lots of information on the film and its music. CD

✨✧ RuptureIsrael Suite/Dominante En Bleu (with bonus download) ... LP
Sommor (France), 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
An incredible record from the French scene of the 70s – both sides very different, but equally wonderful! "Israel Suite" is a freewheeling, side-long track with wonderful energy – a sound that hangs somewhere between spiritual jazz and freer moments – especially the latter near the middle, where things get a bit outside, but are then brought back fantastically by some voices that wordlessly call the musicians to action – then set them on the path forward again! The tune's complicated, but very organic – and the use of voice almost has a Saravah Records vibe. Players include "Georges Locatelli on guitars, Jean-Pierre Mas on piano and keybards, JF Jenny-Clarke on bass, and Sylvain Kref on drums and percussion. Side two features shorter, groovier tunes – almost all of them with vocals by JP Mas, but also including contributions from Nicole Croisille and Boris Bergman – again in a Saravah-styled mode. Titles include "Mes Histoires Bleues", "Voyage Sous La Mer", "Alice Aux Mirioirs", and "Entre Ses Cils". LP, Vinyl record album
