Bosko PetrovicOriginal Album Collection Vol 2 (With Pain I Was Born/Tiffany Girl/Follow Me/Sarabanda/From Moscow To LA/Zvira Voda) (6CD set) ... CD
Jugoton/Croatia (Croatia), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy 6CD ... $16.99
An incredible legacy in jazz – and an overlooked one, too – a huge amount of work from vibist Bosko Petrovic, a player who was as important on his instrument in Europe as Bobby Hutcherson and Milt Jackson were in the US! In fact, both players are a great comparison – because Petrovic started in the 60s in a strong Jackson/MJQ mode, but then really flowered in the 70s – taking off in all the new directions that Hutcherson explored with his music – including a range of interesting creative projects collected on this set! The first Album Collection focused on Bosko's bigger ensemble work, but this set brings together unusual collaborations and cool projects from the late 70s and 80s – including one album with pianist Kenny Drew, an electric date with Csaba Deseo, duets with pianist Davor Kajfes, a vocal album with singer Zvira Voda, and two more duet albums with pianist Neven Franges. The work is wonderful – most never heard on this side of the Atlantic – and the 6CD set features each individual album in a tiny LP sleeve – a hell of a deal at this price! Features the records With Pain I Was Born, Tiffany Girl, Follow Me, Sarabanda, From Moscow To LA, and Zvira Voda. CD

✨✧ VariousFollow Me To The Popcorn – The Untold History Of The Belgian Popcorn Scene ... CD
Jazzman (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wonderful tribute to a music scene that got going in Belgium during the 60s, but which was completely fueled by American soul, jazz, and R&B – spun in jam-packed clubs by DJs in that nation's equivalent of the Northern Soul scene in the UK! Yet while Northern Soul has an upbeat, uptempo groove, popcorn has one that's a lot more laidback – often slinky and vamping, with a mode that might well have been birthed by the tune "Fever" – taken to hundreds of different directions, but always handled with an equally sinister vibe! Instrumentation is as important here as the vocals – and many tunes often have slight Latin or exotic touches, a slight current of jazz, and a rock-solid lead singer who holds the whole thing together. The notes tell the tale of the Belgian DJs who first hooked into this groove – but for our ears, it's the sound that makes the set – early soul music, late rhythm and blues, and some sweet jazzy moments that provide more than a bit of variety. Titles include "Spooky" by George Barnes, "Downstairs" by Plas Johnson, "I'd Think It Over" by Sam Fletcher, "You Need To Fall In Love" by Little Jimmy Ray, "Yeah My Baby Loves Me" by Dav Kipp, "It's A Sweet World" by Gloria Grey, "Fever" by Earl Grant, "Summertime" by Monty & The Cyclones, "I Want That" by Bobby Hendricks, "Harlem Nocturne" by JJ Jones, "Sweet Little Love" by Al Brown & His Tunetoppers, "Boss Bossa Nova" by Bellino, "I Dreamed About My Baby Last Night" by Lillian Vines, "Palm Of Your Hand" by Dolly Lyon, "Barricuda" by The Page Boys, and "Any Way You Wanta" by Harvey.

Eglo, 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
It's maybe been a bit since we last heard from Steve Spacek, but the man has lost none of his charm – and the blend of heavy beats and spacey touches remind us why we loved his sound so much in the first place! The tune's a bumping, ragged little number – slightly broken, but in the best way possible – and amazingly catchy, even with just a few key elements in the mix! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Gary BartzJuju Street Songs (Juju Street Songs/Follow The Medicine Man) ... CD
Prestige, Early 70s. Used ... $9.99
US 2-fer CD that brings together two of Gary Bartz's harder to find LPs on one CD – Juju Street Songs and Follow The Medicine Man. Both LPs feature a lineup that includes Hubert Eaves on electric piano, Stafford James on bass, and Andy Bey on vocals; and the material is pivotal stuff for Gary as he moves from his straight jazz spiritual stuff into a vein that is slightly more electric – but not too electric. Lots of nice funky moments with a righteous vibe, and the track list includes "Dr. Follow's Dance", "Standin' On The Corner", "Sing Me A Song Today", "Black Maybe", "Sifa Zote", and "Africans Unite".

Willie BoboHell Of An Act To Follow/Bobo ... CD
Columbia/Soul Brother (UK), 1978/1979. New Copy ... $14.99
2 late 70s gems from Willie Bobo – 1978's Hell Of An Act To Follow and 1979's Bobo – on a single CD! Hell Of An Act To Follow is really nice stuff from Willie – maybe not as hard and funky as his early 70s work, but very nice in kind of a Latin Club mode, thanks to some great production by Wayne Henderson! The album's a killer blend of funky fusion and Latin rhythms, very much in the NuYorica mode, especially at that mid 70s point when New York groups were getting a taste of a bit more production. Includes Willie's classic take on "Always There" – which is a great dancefloor jazz jammer – plus Henderson's groovy stepper "Keep that Same Old Feeling", and the tracks "Together", "Dindi", and "Pisces". Bobo is kind of a rare Columbia set from 1979 – with a mix dancefloor ready Latin, bits of fusiony funk & soul, and overall much more of vocals record than was typical for Willie – featuring Errol Knowles' doing the honors, plus a Bobo father & son duet. Really kind of an uptempo dancefloor groover from Willie overall, with a couple more laidback numbers! Includes the opener "Palos", "Comin Over To Me", "Latin Lady (Celia's Song)", "It's Over", "Set You Free", "Father And Son" and more. The Soul Brother Records CD version includes a bonus track remix of "Always There". CD

BlondieAutoamerican ... LP
Chrysalis, 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
The biggest sounding Blondie album by far – and a radical leap from New York new wave scene band to a wildly ambitious pop pastiche machine! The band always had a fearless way of filtering far-reaching pop sounds into their material, even when they were still on the CBGBs scene, and while their stylistic reach grew with each successive album, Autoamerican really takes it to extremes. It's somewhat notorious for favoring session players over the core band, but given how crazy the stylistic breadth is – no disrespect to that incredible core band – it's a creative win, as much BECAUSE they bit off more than they could chew production wise, as it is despite that. It's most famous (or infamous, depending on who's talking about it) for "Rapture", and other tracks include "Europa", "Live It Up", their classic, breezy cover of "The Tide Is High", "Here's Looking At You", "Faces", "Follow Me" and more.

A great follow-up to Dee Dee Bridgewater's classic Live In Paris set – and like that one, an incredible session of vocal work that shows that even after many years making soul records, Dee Dee could still cook with an incredible sense of jazz! The longish tracks feature plenty of playful vocal moments – and often have Dee Dee Taking off in scat frenzy, and really improvising along with the tunes. Backing is by a piano trio, and titles include "All Of Me", "How Insensitive", "Strange Fruit", "A Child Is Born", "Night In Tunisia", and a great "Horace Silver Medley"! CD

Ray ColumbusNow You Shake – The Definitive Beat, R&B, Pop, & Psych Recordings 1963 to 1969 ... CD
RPM (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $9.99
A great collection of work from Ray Columbus – a New Zealand rocker of mid 60s vintage, but one who works here with mod sounds to rival much bigger names in London at the time! The collection begins with a core set of work by Ray Columbus & The Invaders – a super-sharp combo who have this sense of energy and fire that's a bit like Paul Revere & The Raiders, but more tuned towards beat group sounds – boundless energy that makes the rest of the combo a perfect fit for Ray's spirited lead vocals. The set then moves into solo material that Columbus recorded on his own, and with groups The Challenge, The Art Collection, and Fire – all with stylistic shifts that follow some of the British forays into trippier sounds after the initial beat boom – or some more compelling, more sophisticated material that Columbus really carries off well as a solo act. Titles include "She's A Mod", "I'm Finding Out", "She's Back Again", "Till We Kissed", "We Want A Beat", "In Memory Of Today", "Happy In A Sad Kind Of Way", "Los Angeles", "I'm Good For You", "Polka Dot Resistance", "Kick Me", and "East Pinkerton Street".

Nicola Conte Presents Stefania DipierroNatural (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Far Out (UK), 2016. New Copy ... $18.99
Nicola Conte's working here with a great new singer – the lovely Stefania Dipierro, who brings in just the right sort of Brazilian vibe to fit the record's placement on the Far Out label! The style here is maybe a bit more Brazilian than some of Nicola's music on the Schema imprint – but the approach is very similar overall – lots of warm, groovy currents that follow a path from 60s Rio through Italian jazz and soundtrack generations too – served up by an instrumental group led by Conte on guitar, with work from Pietro Lusso on Fender Rhodes and Hammond, Gaetano Partipilo on sax and flute, and Fabrizio Bosso on trumpet! Yet Stefania herself definitely is in the spotlight throughout – singing in this breathy, soulful style that really opens up the tunes – which are a mix of originals written with Conte, and some very well-chosen jazz and Brazilian classics. Titles include "Joia", "Vento Bravo", "I Feel The Sun On Me", "Natural", "Ainda Mais Amor", "Within You & I", and "Maracatu Atomico". 10 tracks on the vinyl version. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Joe Cuba SextetBang! Bang! Push! Push! Push! ... LP
Tico, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A Latin classic from the word "bang"! This album was the one that busted Joe Cuba out of the Latin ghetto – into the sound of 60s soul, early funk, and beyond. The record's a stone winner – filled with boogaloo tracks delivered by Joe's firey young sextet, a killer ensemble that was setting the Latin world on its ear at the time. The title track – "Bang Bang" – is one of those tracks that you'll recognize from a million references, but which never sounds as good as it does on this impeccable version from Joe. The whole album follows in a similar suit – blending Latin, jazz, and soul with effortless ease – shifting between English and Spanish lyrics in a genre-busting style that really captures all the freshness of the era. The whole thing's great, and titles include "Asi Soy", "Alafia", "Triste", "Mujer Divina", "Oh Yeah", "Sock It To Me", and the "Bang Bang" follow-up, "Push, Push, Push". Great, hard, and a heck of a lot of fun! LP, Vinyl record album

Sam DeesHeritage Of A Black Man ... CD
Kent (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $8.99 18.99
Killer soul from the 70s! Sam Dees was one of the decade's greatest unsung talents – and his work as a writer and arranger has appeared on countless recordings from the time, even though he himself didn't cut many under his own name. As part of his creative process, though, he would often cut very professional private recordings to work out his songs and his musical ideas – and nearly all of those recordings had a quality that was as good (or better) than most of the soul material that was being issued to the commercial market at the time. This great 22 track CD (a follow-up to Kent's other set of Dees' demos) brings together some of Dees' best private recordings, and the set's filled with some of the best 70's soul tracks we've heard in ages! Titles include "Why Must I Live In Chains", "Black Tattler", "Meet Me Half Way", "Where Is The Love", "Only Lonely People", "Just As Soon As The Feeling's Over", and "Lovers Or Enemies". Highly recommended! CD

DionDion ... CD
Laurie/Ace (UK), 1968. New Copy ... $5.99 11.99
A key later album from Dion – and a set that shows a newly maturing style in his music! The album was something of a follow-up to Dion's huge single "Abraham Martin & John" – the bittersweet track that was a surprise late 60s hit for the singer – and which allowed him to explore much more introspective space on this album. The style is extremely folksy throughout – with a lot of acoustic guitar next to Dion's vocals, which are themselves often recorded with a slightly echoey, almost watery quality. There's definitely echoes here of Tim Buckley and Tim Hardin, but the record's got its own soul as well – thanks to a newly fragile quality in Dion's voice. Titles include "Abraham Martin & John", "Sisters Of Mercy", "Both Sides Now", "Sun Fun Song", "He Looks A Lot Like Me", "The Dolphins", and "You Better Watch Yourself". CD featuers the bonus track "Daddy Rollin". CD

George DukeGuardian Of The Light (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Epic/FTG, 1983. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
A funky concept album from George Duke – and one that's filled with some mighty nice grooves! Guardians Of The Light is a full-on "musical fantasy" – with the story line laid out in the liner notes, yet still a bit difficult to follow – but we can't fault him for that when it's done in his masterful R&B-fusion-funk approach! George sings on all cuts, but he also gets some stellar vocal assistance from Jeffrey Osborne, Portia Griffin, and Patti Austin. The record also has some surprisingly sweet mellow moments that bring a deeper level of spacey soul to the out-there concept – those laidback lines that George could always do better than anyone else! Titles include "Born To Love You", "You Are The Light", "Reach Out", "Give Me Your Love", "Stand", "Soon", and "Fly Away". 3 bonus tracks on this FTG CD edition: "Reach Out (12" Version)", "Celebrate (Instrumental)" and "Brazilian Love Affair".

Bunky, 1967. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Classic Chicago soul recorded under the aegis of the great Bill Bunky Sheppard! The group was one of the best that worked with Sheppard – and they really take advantage of his odd way of producing harmonies, in the style that he'd worked out earlier in the 60s with The Sheppards. Arrangements are by Tom Tom Washington – and the cuts bounce along in that loping groove that was clearly becoming the trademark of the Chicago scene. You probably already know the hit "Get On Up" and the follow-up "And Get Away" – but the album's great all the way through, and features many original cuts like "Listen to Me", "When I'm Ready", "No Doubt About It", and "My Sweet Baby".

Instead, the album focuses on their vocals first, and any sort of grooves second – which makes for some wonderful mellower cuts that really follow the spirit of some of the hippest 70s group soul from Chicago or the east coast – followed by a few upbeat tracks that get handling by Tom Moulton at Sigma Sound in Philly! The balance is great – almost more like some of the best group sides from a few years before, especially Blue Magic – and the ballads really take center stage, and blow us away with the group's deeper currents of soul. Titles include "Mixed Up Moods & Attitudes", "There's Fire Down Below", "I Got To Have Your Love", "She'll Be Right For Me", "Cash Money", and "Disco Pool Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

On Got To Have Your Love, Fantastic Four are a hell of a harmony group – and one who still hold strong through this second chapter of their career – by avoiding any of the cheaper cliches of some of the groups of the disco generation! Instead, the album focuses on their vocals first, and any sort of grooves second – which makes for some wonderful mellower cuts that really follow the spirit of some of the hippest 70s group soul from Chicago or the east coast – followed by a few upbeat tracks that get handling by Tom Moulton at Sigma Sound in Philly!

On BYOF, the Fantastic Four definitely bring their own funk – thanks to tight help from arranger Dennis Coffey, who also produced the set with a heavy groove that's like his own work of the time! The basslines are stronger than before for the FF – but their harmonies are very firmly intact – and, if anything, the blend of funk and great vocals really makes the album a charmer right from the get-go – especially as they aim more for midtempo steppers than too-upbeat disco tunes that might have them losing some of their charm. The overall vibe is maybe more 1974 than 1978 – and titles include "I Just Want To Love Ya Baby", "BYOF", "Cold & Windy Night", "Sexy Lady", "Shout", "Super Lover", and "Realize". CD

Rod McKuenBoy Named Charlie Brown ... CD
Columbia/Rambling (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $14.99
A surprisingly weird and wonderful little record – one that features Rod McKuen's music for the film A Boy Named Charlie Brown, plus a few other tracks as well – all done in that slightly-broken style of Rod's we love so much! The aging poet McKuen might have seemed a strange choice to use for any sort of Peanuts film, but his raspy take on the title tune is really wonderful – almost a version of Charlie Brown that's an older alcoholic who's smoked most of his life – but still trying to sound slightly upbeat! This approach also follows on some of Rod's vocal work on a few tunes for the film Natalie with Henry Mancini – and even his instrumental work here is nice, with kind of a blue-tinged take on the territory of Vince Guaraldi. Titles include vocal numbers "Failure Face", "We", "Champion Charlie Brown", "A Boy Named Charlie Brown", and "Natalie" – plus instrumental tracks "Something For Snoopy", "I'll Catch The Sun", "Jean", and "Joanna" – as well as instrumentals of a few Charlie Brown tracks too.

The vocals are incredible – that rich blend of deep notes and soaring highs that made The Dells one of the most technically amazing soul groups in the 70s – and Stepney's arrangements follow in the same mode as his work for their Dionne Warwick album, and his music for Minnie Riperton and Ramsey Lewis – with lots of groovy currents on the bottom and soaring strings on the top – sophisticated, but completely soulful too – at a level that nobody else can touch! Terry Callier wrote the original tunes "The Love We Had Stays On My Mind", "Freedom Means", "Melody Man", "Free & Easy", "Rather Be With You", and "It's All Up To You" – and the set also includes great remakes of "One Less Bell To Answer", "Make It With You", and "If You Go Away/Love Story".

Sony, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 10CDs/9DVDs/8Blu Ray ... Out Of Stock
An insane document of the early years of Pink Floyd – a beautiful collection that may well be one of the most complete, elaborate box sets ever created! The set features an insane amount of music – and maybe is more than the group members themselves can remember from the time – presented here on 10 CDs, 9 DVDs, 8 blu-ray discs, and even 5 7" singles! The music spins out in many formats – and includes a huge number of rare concert performances, European television material, BBC recordings, demos, and more – almost all of which has never been formally issued to the public. This isn't one of those "best of" box sets, or one of those full catalog releases – and instead the whole thing really plumbs the deepest depths of the group at this genius early moment. If you don't know these pre-Dark Side Of The Moon years of the group, you're really in for a treat – as there's an earthier, grittier quality to Pink Floyd at this point – from the madness of the fuzzy early tracks with Syd Barrett, to the more extrapolated instrumental jams that followed, to some of the surprisingly intimate songs that came into play before the group achieved more oblique modes of presenting themselves. The set also includes the full feature films More, Obscured By Clouds, and Live At Pompeii – and the box includes 7 different books, 42 bits of memorabilia, and 100 photos too! CD

✨✧ Floyd CramerClass Of 73/Class Of 74 & 75 ... CD
RCA/Vocalion (UK), 1973/1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Floyd Cramer takes it to school – with two of his "class" albums from the 70s! Class Of 73 is a mighty nice set – a record that has the trademark Cramer piano getting maybe a bit more of a contemporary touch in the hands of arranger Barry McDonald – who swirls in strings and horns with maybe a bit more prominence than the backings on some of Cramer's other records, but still at a level that leaves lots of space for his work on the keys! Titles include a great reading of "My Love" – plus "Killing Me Softly", "Will It Go Round In Circles", "Kodachrome", "You Are The Sunshine Of My Life", and "And I Love You So". Class Of 74 & 75 is a Floyd Cramer album that packs two years into one – but all with a vibe that more than lives up to the sound that Cramer's crafted in Nashville after all these years! There's a nicely light touch on the strings from Michael Leech, and Floyd's piano is always out front – following the melody in his spare, gently tripping way. Titles include "Time In A Bottle", "Please Come To Boston", "Sunshine On My Shoulders", "Mandy", and "I Honestly Love You" – a great run of 70s AOR titles, all done as easy piano instrumentals! CD

Adam O'FarrillStranger Days ... CD
Sunnyside, 2016. New Copy ... $10.99 16.98
Trumpeter Adam O'Farrill's debut as a leader, and it's a strong one! Adam is the son of Cuban jazz piano great Arturo O'Farrill, but on Stranger Days, he's pretty firmly establishing his own identity in contemporary post-bop – keeping up the family tradition as a top notch player, rather than following the same stylistic path – not on this excellent debut for Sunnyside, anyway. Players include his brother Zack O'Farrill on drums, Chad Lefkowitz-Brown on sax, and Walter Stinson on bass. Titles include "A & R ITalian Eatery", Survival Instincts", Forget Everything You Learned At School", "The Courtroom", "Alligator Got The Blues", "Building The Metamorphosen Bridge", "Lower Brooklyn Botanical Union" and more. Great stuff! CD

✨✧ Pink FloydEarly Years 1967 to 1972 – Cre/Ation ... CD
Sony, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99
A really excellent collection of early work from Pink Floyd – material pulled from the huge Early Years box set, a special selection of the best of that treasure trove – presented here in a collection of 27 titles in all, 19 of which have never been released! If you don't know these pre-Dark Side Of The Moon years of the group, you're really in for a treat – as there's an earthier, grittier quality to Pink Floyd at this point – from the madness of the fuzzy early tracks with Syd Barrett, to the more extrapolated instrumental jams that followed, to some of the surprisingly intimate songs that came into play before the group achieved more oblique modes of presenting themselves. The set's got a number of tracks that were the special mixes for the film Zabriskie Point – including "Auto Scene (version 2)", "On The Highway)", "The Riot Scene", and "Looking At The Map" – and other titles include "Nothing (part 14)", "Flaming (BBC 1967)", "Interstellar Overdrive (live at The Paradiso 1969)", "Ummagumma Radio Ad", "Embryo (alt – BBC 1970)", "Atom Heart Mother Band Version (live in Montreux 1970", "Child Hood's End (2016 rmx)", and "Stay (2016 rmx)".

ZappZapp/Zapp II/Zapp III (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner/Robinsongs (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99
Three funky nuggets from Zapp – all packaged together in one collection, with bonus tracks too! First up is the initial album Zapp – the classic first album by this legendary funky combo – a group who not only went onto change the sound of funk in the 80s, but also went onto have a huge impact on generations of hip hop as well! The album burns from the very first note – the wicked snapping funk of "More Bounce To The Ounce" – a tune that became the blueprint for a generation, and still sounds way better than the millions of copycat attempts that came out over the years! The record follows with some equally wicked bass/keyboard cuts – often with plenty of electro production touches too – thanks to sweeeet work in the studio from Bootsy Collins and Roger Troutman. Bootsy's presence is key, too – as the set kind of strips down the ensemble P-Funk vibe of the generation before – going for a lean, clean groove that's held up beautifully over the years! In addition to "More Bounce To The Ounce", the record also features the mellow steppers cut "Be Alright", which has a wonderful hook, and a great compressed modern soul sound – and other tracks include "Funky Bounce", "Freedom", and "Brand New Pplayer". Zapp II is next – seminal work from Roger Troutman and Zapp – a killer batch of cuts that forever changed the sound of funk! The group's "wheeeeeeet/whomp!" sound is very firmly in place by the time of this release – and the sound here is even more electric than their debut – a groundbreaking style that went onto inspire countless acts of the electro generation, and a fair bit of hip hoppers too! Vocals are by Roger, Bad Bobby Glover, and Gregory Jackson – and Zapp's basslines really kick the whole thing into gear – as do the keyboards, too. Titles include "A Touch Of Jazz (Playin Kinda Ruff Part 2)", "Dance Floor", "Doo Wa Ditty (Blow That Thing)", "Come On", "Do You Really Want An Answer", and "Playin Kinda Ruff". Last up is Zapp's 3rd album, and one that shows them still very much on top of their game! The mix of tight bass, keyboards, and occasional vocoder bits is firmly in place from their first two albums – a stunning legacy of ensemble funk that pushes the older P-Funk ethos into hip new territory for the 80s! Roger and crew are superb throughout – fusing all rhythmic elements together beautifully, and electrifying the whole album with some great voice box vocals – almost making you feel like the instruments themselves are running the show! Titles include "We Need The Buck", "Spend My Whole Life", "I Can Make You Dance", "Do Wa Ditty (live)", "Play Some Blues", and "Heartbreaker (parts 1 & 2)". CD features bonus 45 tracks – "Heartbreaker (part 1)", "I Can Make You Dance (part 1)", and single versions of "More Bounce To The Ounce", "Dance Floor", and "Playin Kinda Ruff". CD

✨✧ Oscar PetersonOscar Peterson Plays The Cole Porter Song Book ... LP
Verve, 1959. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Cole Porter's tunes are great enough on their own, but Oscar really opens them up on this set – picking up the inherent rhythms in the numbers and really working them over – in a way that makes the outing one of the most lively in Peterson's songbook series for Verve! Oscar's fluid touch on the keys is perfect throughout – taking lots of chances, but always strongly following the melody – and rhythm accompaniment is from the usual team of Ray Brown on bass and Ed Thigpen on drums. Titles include "In The Still Of The Night", "Love For Sale", "It's All Right With Me", "Just One Of Those Things", "Night & Day", "It's De-Lovely", and "I Love Paris". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Tom PrehnAxiom 1 & 2 (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Sonet/Corbett vs. Dempsey, 1963. New Copy Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the rarest free jazz albums of the European 60s scene – a set that was originally intended for release by Sonet Records, pressed up in test records for the musicians, then denied release because they felt that they'd already moved past the performance! Yet in the space of over 50 years, the music still sounds remarkably fresh – an early, striking, and stunning example of the way that the European avant jazz scene was not only overtaking the American one, but also providing the kind of energy that would be a key inspiration for artists like Albert Ayler or Cecil Taylor! Pianist Tom Prehn offers up a lot of the latter here – boundless piano lines that leap forward into space with a frenzied, yet tuneful approach – followed by tremendous tenor from Frits Krogh, a player we don't know at all – but who blows powerfully and soulfully, at a level that maybe even prefaces some of John Coltrane's more outside material to come. The rest of the group features Poul Ehlers on bass and Finn Slumstrup on drums – and the album features the full "Axiom (parts 1 & 2)" performance from the Sonet album – plus a more contemplative number titled "Percussive Anticipations", recorded by the same group in 1966, and appearing here for the first time ever!

✨✧ David T WalkerDavid T Walker ... LP
Ode, Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sublime grooves from studio guitar genius David T Walker – an album that's a perfect summation of the laidback, yet all-there sound he crafted for so many other artists over the years – finally cast out in the lead, and set up in a sweet set of larger soul instrumental backings! The style's a bit like the Kudu Records mode of the time – with a core instrumentalists grooving out over a larger ensemble – but the overall focus is a bit less jazz, and more in a soul instrumental mode – one that follows the melodies nicely, yet still has Walker bringing in some great chromatic touches on his hollow body electric. There's a similarity here to the sound of O'Donel Levy on Groove Merchant, although a bit tighter overall – and other musicians on the set include Joe Sample on keyboards, Billy Preston on organ, and Paul Humphrey on drums. Titles include "Never Can Say Goodbye", "I've Never Had The Pleasure", "The Real T", "I Want To Talk To You", "Hot Fun In The Summertime", and "What's Going On". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Evan Parker/Derek Bailey/Han BenninkTopography Of The Lungs (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Incus/PSI (UK), 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A landmark album in the British avant garde – the first set ever issued on Incus Records, and a monumental set of improvisations between Evan Parker on saxes, Hank Bennink on percussion, and Derek Bailey on guitar! The album followed from some great energy on the British scene of the previous few years – but went onto set the tone for countless other improvisations in years to come – especially in the way that Bailey's guitar is integrated into the sharper sounds of the saxes and drums. That blend may well be the record's strongest contribution to improvisation – but even without that historic status, it's still a hell of a set from some genius players at their height. Titles include "Dogmeat", "For Peter B & Peter K", "Fixed Elsewhere", and "Titan Moon". CD features two lost tracks from the original sessions – "Found Elsewhere 1" and "Found Elsewhere 2". CD

✨✧ VariousWarner Girl Group Nuggets Vol 6 – Break A Way ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A totally great collection of girl group material from Warner Brothers and related labels – and a set that definitely lives up to the "nuggets" promised in the title! Most of these tracks aren't hits, or overplayed oldies – and instead are these sweet little gems that lay nestled deep in the mighty holdings of Warner – brought forth for this special Japanese-only series, in a sublime selection of cuts that features both solo female singers, and some excellent girl groups too! There's a few soul acts in the mix, but most of the material is in the rock and pop vein – with the kind of super-sparkly production you'd get on labels like Warner, Roulette, Josie, and Jubilee. This very cool 6th volume has a special international focus – and also brings in material from Europe that was following an American girl group mode – tracks from a wider global range of Warner labels, with 25 titles that include "That's the Way She Looks At You" by Sharon Tandy, "Where" by Caterina Valente, "He Knows How To Love Me" by Helen Shapiro, "Cold Cold Winter" by Jean & The Statesides, "Give Him My Love" by The McKinleys, "Break A Way" by Beryl Marsden, "I'm Waiting For The Day" by Peanut, "I Think Of You" by The Chantelles, "Baby Let Me Be Your Baby" by Deano, "Wedding Cake" by Siw Malmkvist, "Forgive Me" by Noeleen Batley, "See If I Care" by Ria Bartok, and "We Don't Belong" by Sylvan.

✨✧ VariousWayfaring Strangers – Cosmic American Music ... CD
Numero, Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The influence of the Byrds, Gram Parsons, and Flying Burrito Brothers knew no bounds back in the day – as you'll hear on this wonderful collection of underground recordings that followed very strongly in their lead! If you think alt-country's only a recent invention, then think again – because way back at the end of the 60s, folks were already starting to come up with their own variant of the sounds of Nashville and Bakersfield – music that's often a bit more gut-wrenching than the mainstream, and which often has those currents of sadness and longing that we love especially strongly in Parsons' records. As usual with Numero, the presentation is wonderful – a special sort of package that features images of all the rare records included, and notes on each individual artist – alongside a set list that includes "Lonesome City" by Black Canyon Gang, "Baby's Back" by Kenny Knight, "To See Her Smile" by Arrogance, "Travelin" by Jimmy Carter & Dallas County Green, "And I Didn't Want You" by Mistress Mary, "Lilly Of The Valley" by Dan Pavlides, "You Can't Make It Alone" by Plain Jane, "Spirit Of The Golden Juice" by FJ McMahon, and "I Know Her Well" by Sandy Harless.

Dave BaileyComplete 1 & 2 Feet In The Gutter Sessions (Getting Into Something/One Foot In The Gutter/Two Feet In The Gutter) ... CD
Columbia/Lonehill (Spain), 1960/1961. Used 2 CDs ... $29.99
Some of the most soulful jazz ever recorded for Columbia Records – 3 albums worth of material from the combo of drummer Dave Bailey! Bailey's probably best known for his work in the Gerry Mulligan group, but for a brief time at the start of the 60s he stepped out as a leader – working with a focus and intensity that easily matched the best hard boppers on Blue Note or Prestige! These 3 records for Columbia are all amazing sets that we'd rank with some of our favorite jazz from the time – razor-sharp records that have a really earthy finish, and which bring out some of the best hardbop work on record from horn soloists Curtis Fuller, Clark Terry, Junior Cook, Charlie Rouse, and Bill Hardman – all of whom really catch fire under Bailey's guidance! But even above the great horn work on the albums, we really have to note the piano – as Horace Parlan plays on 2 of the albums, easily matching his Blue Note classics, and Billy Gardner follows up on the last set – working with a low low bottom that we love from his sides with Lou Donaldson. Bassists are Peck Morrison and Ben Tucker – and titles include "Slop Jah", "Little Old Mongoose", "Blues For JP", "One Foot In The Gutter", "Sandu", "Two Feet In The Gutter", "Lady Iris B", "Coffee Walk", and "Brownie Speaks". And if 3 albums' worth of material isn't enough, the CD also features 3 more tunes from Bailey's rare Jazztime session with Grant Green and Frank Hayes – "Reaching Out", "Our Miss Brooks", and "One For Elena". 16 tracks in all – most of them quite long!

An excellent collection of work from the great John Barry – one that focuses on his famous contributions for the James Bond films – but also includes other soundtrack and instrumental material as well! The set begins with the John Barry Plays 007 record – a brilliant album that not only features some instrumental soundtrack themes, but also includes some great mod Barry instrumentals from the 60s – kind of a nice link to his sophisticated film music, and some of his smaller combo work! Titles include "Kinky", "Fancy Dance", "007", "From Russia With Love", "Big Shield", "Aliki", "Monkey Feathers", and "The London Theme". Next are two tracks from Elizabeth Taylor In London – "Lovers & Browning", with a recitation by Taylor – plus the jazzy instrumental "The London Waltz". Next are two tracks from Zulu – a colonial period film that starred Michael Caine – followed by 15 more groovy instrumentals that include "Tit Willow Twist", "Hit & Miss", "Easy Beat", "Beat Girl", "The Lolly Theme", "Spinnerree", "Roman Spring Of Mrs Stone", "The Sun's Hooray", and "Saturday's Child".
