Steve SpacekFollow Me (vocal, inst, acapella) ... 12-inch
Eglo, 2016. New Copy ... $9.99
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

✨✧ 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 ... Out Of Stock
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 ... 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.

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

Linda CliffordLet Me Be Your Woman ... LP
Curtom, 1979. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $2.99
A bit over the top – and the kind of record that might have bankrupted Curtom in its later years! Linda's very much in full-disco mode, singing to long clubby arrangements by Gil Askey that have more strings and less soul than previous efforts. The one saving grace of the album is the cut "Don't Give It Up", a hip follow-up to "Runaway Love", which has a similar bad talkin' approach, with Linda doing a bit of a monologue in the middle. Other tracks include "Let Me Be Your Woman", "Hold Me Close", "Sweet Melodies" and the pairing of "One Of Those Songs" and "Bridge Over Troubled Water", which takes up all of the 2nd disc in the 2LP set.

Solid Smoke, Mid 60s/1981. Very Good Gatefold ... $3.99
Excellent (and out of print) compilation of the Manhattans' incredible early singles on the Carnival label. The tracks are amazing, with harmonies that will make you cry, and arrangements that will make your heart leap. This is about the only way you'll find most of this stuff on vinyl, and the set list includes 15 great ones, including "I Wanna Be (Your Everything)", "Can I", "I Bet'cha (Couldn't Love Me)", "Baby I'm Sorry", and "When We Are Made As One".

✨✧ Young & CompanyI Like What You're Doing To Me! ... LP
Brunswick, 1980. Sealed ... $19.99
The only full length album we've ever seen from this youthful combo – and a killer set that's gotten plenty of play over the years! Young & Company were an obscure New Jersey group who struck big momentarily with the single "I Like What You're Doing To Me", and got a brief chance to cut this one and only album for Brunswick as a follow-up. The album's an interesting one, because it came at a time when the last-gasping Brunswick was showing a real talent for cutting underground cuts – mostly issued on 12" singles, and rarely drawn out to a full LP like this – but at a level that really makes this album a lost gem! There's kind of a strong roller skating groove on the best cuts – moving along at a good midtempo pace with compressed instrumentation on guitar and keyboards, never too over the top, and definitely not disco. You can hear that to best effect on the big hit "I Like What You're Doing To Me", but the album's got plenty of other nice cuts, like "Strut Your Stuff", "Checking You Out", "Love Me All Night", and "Mellow Mood".

✨✧ Chi-LitesMe & You ... LP
Chi Sound, 1981. Used ... Out Of Stock
Chi-Lites going strong into the 80s – hitting a whole new groove, but keeping things real in the vocal department! The album's got a great mix of ballads and groovers – similar to other Chi-Sound productions at the time – and the upbeat numbers follow nicely from the group's work on Mercury in the late 70s, more kicked up than their fragile ballads of the early 70s, but with great vocals nonetheless. Production is by Carl Davis with group leader Eugene Washington, and arrangements are by an old Brunswick crew who include Tom Tom and Sonny Sanders. Titles include "Whole Lot Of Good Good Lovin", "Tell Me Where It Hurts", "Me & You", "Never Speak To A Stranger", "Get Down With Me", and "Try My Side". LP, Vinyl record album

Amen CornerRound Amen Corner – The Complete Deram Recordings ... CD
Deram/RPM (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... About August 4, 2017
Sweet jangle pop from Amen Corner – one of the sunniest UK groups of the late 60s! The group checked in big with their hit "Bend Me Shape Me" – and follow through here with an equally catchy, equally groovy set of tracks – tunes that really let them move past the straighter format of a hit, and work through a whole range of excellent modes in the space of an album! There's a much more expansive style here than we'd expect – as even familiar tunes are handled with playful arrangements and offbeat instrumental flourishes – more than enough to take a core mod pop groove, and push it into some cool pop psych territory. Titles include "Expressway To Your Heart", "Good Times", "Lost & Found", "Gin House", "Something You've Got", "Judge Rumple Crassila", and "Bend Me Shape Me". CD features bonus tracks added to the original Deram album – including "The World Of Broken Hearts", "Nema", "Satisnek The Job's Worth", "Run Run Run", and "High In The Sky". CD

Ruby AndrewsEverybody Saw You ... LP
Zodiac, 1970. Very Good- ... $58.99
An excellent bit of Chicago female soul, performed by the great Ruby Andrews, and with arrangements by some of the best local talents in the city. Ruby sang with a voice that was pure deep soul, but she was often set up in more sophisticated arrangements – in a style that worked perfectly in a "double-edged sword" model that was often employed by other Chicago singers, like Barbara Acklin or Patty Drew. The album was issued as a follow-up to Ruby's massic cut "Casanova", which is a perfect example of this style – with Ruby's raw vocals over the top, some loping string arrangements underneath, and the whole thing working perfectly together in an amazing blend of styles! The whole album's incredibly strong, and other tracks include "Casanova 70", "You Made A Believer Out Of Me", "Tit For Tat", and "Can You Get Away". LP, Vinyl record album

BlondieAutoamerican ... LP
Chrysalis, 1980. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
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.

Blue MagicMagic Of The Blue ... LP
Atco, 1974. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Was there ever a better harmony soul group than Blue Magic? Hearing a record like this, it's hard to think so – and the album's pure east coast magic all the way through! The group still manage to keep the fragile quality that made their first work so great, but they've also got a wonderfully confident approach too – using arrangements from Norman Harris, Bobby Eli, and Vince Montana to soar with a Philly proudness that's totally great – never disco or club, but with a full, rich quality that's totally great. Tracks include their big hit "Three Ring Circus", a nice follow-up to the earlier "Sideshow", and other titles include "Let Me Be The One", "Looking For A Friend", "When Ya Coming Home", and "You Won't Have To Tell Me Goodbye".

BrickWaiting On You (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia/FTG, 1980. Used ... $9.99
An overlooked killer from Brick – the group's fourth album, but every bit as tight and funkier as earlier sets! Brick's Atlanta-bred groove is very much in place here – that lean, mean approach to funk that made them a standout right from the get-go – almost setting the scene for the stripped-down modes that so many other groups would follow well into the 80s! That tighter sound lets the group really hit a strongly soulful focus here – serving up some of their best vocals to date, and reminding us that some of the best mainstream funk groups always had a strong ability to harmonize over their grooves. Titles include "Push Push", "Get Started", "All The Way", "Waiting On You", "Free", "Sweet Lips", and "Let Me Make You Happy". CD also features 2 bonus cuts – "Dazz" and "Dusic", served up in longer 12" versions! CD

✨✧ ClipseHell Hath No Fury (white vinyl pressing) ... LP
Jive/Get On Down, 2006. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99 20.98
The long-gestated follow up to the breakout Lord Willin' record by Clipse! Hell Hath No Fury may have been on ice for years, but it appeared as an instant classic, WAY up at the top of the list of greatest hip hop LPs of the mid 00s. The Neptunes beats are very spare and chilly, despite the fiery title – while the Pusha T & Malice style of precise storytelling and detached deliveries probably make them one of the most natural duos in the game. A gritty rap masterpiece. Tracks include "We Got It For Cheap", "Momma I'm So Sorry", the masterful "Mr Me Too" feat Pharrell, "Wamp Wamp (What It Do)" feat Slim Thug, "Dirty Money", "Ride Around Shining" feat the Re-Up Gang, "Key's Open Doors", "Chinese New Year" feat Rosco P Coldchain, "Nightmares" feat Pharrell & Bilal and more.

Mitty CollierI Am Love ... LP
Now Sound, Early 80s. Near Mint- ... $33.99
A gospel record cut by the great Chicago soul singer Mitty Collier – and one that's not as hip as her earlier album in the same vein. The record appears to be from the early 80s, and it's got a sound that mixes Mitty's rich soulful voice with some tinny keyboard-heavy gospel arrangements. Not a bad record if you like modern gospel, but also not necessarily the kind of record that will placate you if you're a secular soul fan. Mitty's daughter Elisha sings a bit on the record, and tracks include "Teach Me How To Follow Thee", "Would You", "He Brought Joy Into My Life", and "What He's Done For Me". LP, Vinyl record album

Common returns with a lean, filler free full length in Finding Forever – a set that's definitely the thematic follow up to the BE LP – and a solid one, with highpoints that equal Com's best work of the decade! The set is largely produced by Kanye, with some terse, harder hitting moments, some laidback and soulful ones, and some really nice homage moments to Dilla and DJ Premier. Another winner! Titles include "Start The Show", "The People", "Drivin' Me Wild" feat Lily Allen, "I Want You", "Southside" feat Kanye West, the killer "The Game" featuring scratches by Premier (and a sound that's a total Primo tribute), "U, Black Maybe", "So Far To Go" feat D'Angelo, "Break My Heart", "Misunderstood" and more.

✨✧ Nicola Conte Presents Stefania DipierroNatural ... CD
Far Out (UK), 2016. New Copy ... $12.99
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 a sublime remake of Betty Carter's "Open The Door", plus "Joia", "Que Maravilha", "Vento Bravo", "I Feel The Sun On Me", "Natural", "Ainda Mais Amor", "Within You & I", and "Maracatu Atomico". 14 in all.

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

Dream WarriorsAnd Now The Legacy Begins ... LP
4th & Broadway, 1990. Very Good ... $9.99
The standout LP from The Dream Warriors – a quirky hip hop group who first sprung onto the scene in the wake of De La Soul and Tribe Called Quest. The duo were Canadian, and had a style that was a bit more open-ended than others – with room for odd samples and a keen sense of humor. Both of these are displayed well in the album's classic track "My Definition of a Boombastic Jazz Style" – a pretty great number that sampled heavily from Quincy Jones' "Soul Bossa Nova", many years before the track became better known as the theme from Austin Powers. Other tracks include "Follow Me Not", "Ludi", "Tune From the Missing Channel", and "Wash Your Face in My Sink". " LP, Vinyl record album

Bill Evans5 Original Albums (Trio 64/Simple Matter Of Conviction/Further Conversations/At Montreux Jazz Festival/What's New) (5CD set) ... CD
Verve (Germany), Mid 60s. New Copy 5 CDs ... $22.99
Five classic Bill Evans albums on Verve – all in tiny LP-styled sleeves! On Trio 64, Bill Evans is working with a really wonderful trio – one that features Gary Peacock on bass and Paul Motian on drums – both budding young modernists who help Evans reach some new sounds on the set! The record starts out with a groove that's perhaps more inside than you'd expect – but it then quickly moves into the sort of sensitively-played numbers that really made Evans a key force in jazz during the early 60s – supported by equally personal work from Peacock and Motian, who both clearly feel free to move beyond common piano trio cliches. Tracks include "Dancing In The Dark", "Always", "Little Lulu", "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town", "Everything Happens To Me", and "For Heaven's Sake". On Simple Matter Of Conviction, Bill Evans is working with bassist Eddie Gomez, a hugely talented bassist that would be one of Bill's best partners during this period, and a player who added a nice dose of soul to the proceedings. The drummer is Shelly Manne, who's pretty nice, too – and really shows off some of his more sophisticated shadings here in the presence of Evans and Gomez – similar to his work on the great Empathy album. Tracks are shortish, but filled with imagination – and titles include "Unless It's You", "These Things Called Changes", "Stella By Starlight", and "A Simple Matter Of Conviction". Further is a follow up to the similarly-titled Conversations With Myself album recorded several years before – and like that one, a record that has Bill Evans playing "with" himself, via the technology of overdubs! The album's less a solo album, than a duet one – given that most of the numbers feature Evans working between melody and rhythm on overlapping piano lines – creating a mini chorus of pianos that sounds totally great, and wonderfully unique! Titles include "Emily", "Yesterdays", "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town", "Funny Man", "The Shadow Of Your Smile", "Little Lulu" and "Quiet Now". Next is Bill Evans' first famous appearance at the Montreux Jazz Festival – a great 60s trio session, with Eddie Gomez on bass and Jack DeJohnette on drums! The tunes are mostly relatively familiar ones, but the ensemble on the set gives them a freer and more lyrical feel than you might expect – especially with DeJohnette on drums, who is a somewhat more powerful choice than some of Bill's other drummers of the 60s. Eddie Gomez is great, as always – with that round bass sound that we totally love – and titles include "Nardis", "Sleepin Bee", "Embraceable You", "Someday My Prince Will Come", "Mother Of Earl", "One For Helen", and "Walkin Up". And last, but not least, is What's New – one of Bill Evans' most beautiful albums from the time – and one that features the fantastic team of Jeremy Steig and Eddie Gomez, who were cutting some beautiful records for other labels at the time. Steig's flute later got very silly, but at this point, he's got a raw stripped-down sound that works perfectly with Gomez's warm, slightly funky basslines – making for a slightly soulful approach that really transforms the session. Evans is no slouch either – and the youthful company makes him play some of his best bits in years – on titles that include "Time Out For Chris", "So What", "Spartacus Love Theme", and "Autumn Leaves".

The first truly great David Bowie electric guitar album – an all-out, power-driven set of tracks played by a group that included Mick Ronson and Tony Visconti! Bowie's in prime pre-Ziggy mode here – ripping into tunes that blister with dark energy that are some of the first truly dangerous songs he ever recorded – with this strong undercurrent of mania that follows some of the darker whimsy of his earliest records – set to searing sounds that would forever help Bowie cross over to audiences who might previously have thought him an arty wimp. The set includes classics like "Saviour Machine", "The Width Of The Circle", "All The Madmen", "Black Country Rock", "The Supermen", and the title track, "The Man Who Sold The World". 2LP pressing – with rare bonus tracks!

Amazing work from Pigmeat Markham – routines that follow his time-tested formula, but which still sparkle brightly with their own subtle brilliance! As on other records of the time, Pig's working with some great supporting help who let him really play the fool – and titles were recorded live at the Regal Theater, and include "Reading & Writing", "The Preacher", "The Bachelor Apartment", "Batter Up", and "Court Session". LP, Vinyl record album

Gianni FerrioAmico, Stammi Lontano Alemno Un Palmo (The Story Of Ben & Charlie) ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1972. Used ... $12.99
A groovier than usual score for a spaghetti western – penned by Gianni Ferrio, and filled with some really great touches! The quality of the record comes across from the very first track – the English language vocal theme "Let It Rain Let It Pour", which almost has a Leonard Cohen sort of feel. And the following instrumental tunes change things up even more – bringing in a wide variety of complicated orchestrations that go past the usual western modes – and which feature some quirkier tunes and a few sparer, starker Italian-styled numbers – next to the more standard western dramatic fare. The CD features a total of 23 tracks in all– including a number of previously unissued bonus tracks – and titles include "El Compadrito", "Come Tanto Tempo Fa", "Gli Ultimi Due", "Controluce", "Sensazioni", "Ostinato Patetico", "Preludio E Azione", and "Ridendo E Scherzando".

Ella FitzgeraldTwelve Nights In Hollywood (4CD set) ... CD
Verve/Hip-O Select, 1961/1962. Used 4 CDs ... $36.99
Massive music from Ella Fitzgerald – 4CDs worth of sublime small group recordings – all of them live, and all of them previously unissued! The set follows the same format of the Verve Ella In Hollywood album – recorded in a small club setting, with combo backing that really lets Fitzgerald open up and swing – inflecting the tunes with the kind of warmth and spontaneity that she brought to her famous live performances of the time – which were almost always more compelling than her studio sides, no matter how great those were too! The first 3CDs feature material from two weeks' worth of recording in May of 1961 – with backing from Jim Hall on guitar, Lou Levy on piano, Wilfred Middlebrooks on bass, and Gus Johnson on drums – and CD four features Ella returning to Hollywood for two more nights in 1962, with trio backing from Paul Smith on piano, Middlebrooks on bass, and Stan Levey on drums. There's a massive 77 tracks in all – handsomely package in a hardcover 7" square book – which also features beautiful color pages inside, lots of notes on the music, and design that's every bit as groovy as the old albums on Verve. Titles include "Joe Williams' Blues", "It's De-Lovely", "Lorelei", "I Can't Get Started", "Round Midnight", "Perdido", "Little White Lies", "Lover Come Back To Me", "Across The Alley From The Alamo", "Love For Sale", "Exactly Like You", "Mack The Knife", "Teach Me Tonight", "My Kind Of Boy", "It Had To Be You", "Hard Hearted Hannah", "All Of Me", and "Too Darn Hot/Ella's Twist". And, in case you're wondering, there's almost no repetition in the set at all – all discreet, unique tunes – not just the sort of rehash you might get in other concert box sets of this nature! CD

Jimmy GiuffreJimmy Giuffre Quartet In Person ... LP
Verve, 1960. Very Good- ... $26.99
Pivotal work from the great Jimmy Giuffre – a live performance that's wonderfully poised between the spare, subtle sound of his late 50s trio, and some of his freer work to come in the 60s! The group here features frequent partner Jim Hall on guitar, as well as the great Buell Niedlinger on bass and Billy Osborne on drums – the latter of whom gives the record a slightly different sound than usual, considering that Giuffre often didn't work with a drummer! The drums bring in a bold sense of rhythm at times – creating a pulse that's taken up strongly by Giuffre on either tenor sax or clarinet – and followed by some of those wonderfully round basslines that Niedlinger was known for at the time. Other moments have the drums dropping out almost altogether – letting Hall's guitar guide the rhythm most strongly in that naturally swinging unison he developed with Jimmy on the pair's previous trio dates. Tracks are all longish, and quite exploratory – but never as free as Giuffre would sound a year later – and tunes include "The Crab", "We See", "Two For Timbuctu", "The Quiet Time", and "What's New".

Dave GrusinThree Days Of The Condor ... LP
Capitol, 1975. Very Good+ ... $39.99
An incredible soundtrack – one of the all-time greats of the 70s! Dave Grusin really outdid himself with this one – and created a sublime mix of sound, space, and spare funky beats that holds up wonderfully all the way through! The main theme steps around in a haunting mix of electric piano, basslines, and muted trumpets over strings – and lots of other tunes on the set follow the same format – taking the best of funky Morricone and Francis Lai, and giving it an even hipper American twist! Plus, most of Grusin's soundtrack work of this nature was never properly issued (like his great tunes for Barretta!) – and this rare album is one of the few that ever made it, however briefly, to the record racks! Titles include "Condor", "Yellow Panic", "Out To Lunch", "Flight Of The Condor", and "Flashback To Terror". Loads of great keyboards! LP, Vinyl record album

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)".

Tom PrehnAxiom ... LP
Sonet/Rune Grammafon (Norway), 1963. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
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! LP, Vinyl record album

Timmy ThomasYou're The Song I've Always Wanted To Sing ... LP
Glades, 1974. Very Good ... $16.99
A Miami soul masterpiece from start to finish – and a lesser-known record from drum machine hit maestro Timmy Thomas! The album's got the feel of Timmy's classic Why Can't We Live Together album – but the overall sound is a bit fuller and richer, with a soulfulness that grabs us right away – and holds on through the entire set! Most of the tracks have that warm percolating early drum machine undercurrent that Timmy virtually pioneered at the time – followed by some great guitar work from Willie "Little Beaver" Hale, and some vocals from Timmy that sometimes have a nice deep soul feel. The album's worth it alone for the title track "You're The Song I've Always Wanted To Sing" – but the whole thing's great, and tracks include "Deep In You", "Let Me Be Your Eyes", "I've Got To See You Tonight", "One Brief Moment", "Ebony Affair", and "Deep In You".

✨✧ Barry GraySpace 1999 ... LP
RCA, 1976. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Barry Gray's greatest moments – the ultra groovy soundtrack for Space 1999, the short-lived but well-remembered mainstream sci-fi show from the 70s! The title theme has a nice bit of a dancefloor bounce to it – pre-guessing the disco-copy mode that other space soundtracks were facing in the 70s by turning out its own original hit – and other tunes in the set follow a sometimes similar mode that makes the record far funkier than you'd guess for a soundtrack of this type! Some tracks are certainly more straightforward and dramatic, but there's plenty here in that funky Brit Easy mode of the mid 70s – lots of compressed instrumentation and some slight electronic touches – and often rhythms that are a lot harder than you'd expect! Highlights include "Breakaway", "Death's Other Dominion", "Black Sun", and a reprise of the theme. LP, Vinyl record album

There's a great break at the start of "At Jody's" – the kind you'd have to search hundreds of vintage records to find – and which is also followed by some completely wonderful slow-bumping bassline and wicked wangly guitar – almost like a slow-grooving number from the Shaft soundtrack! "Breezy Day" is a great funk track too – a bit chunkier, with a vibe that almost reminds us of Three Pieces' classic album on Fantasy! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Fantastic French funk and psych – a very cool collection that goes way past the obvious hits of the 60s – to bring together some of the trippier tracks of the time! Despite the date range in the title, there's also some cuts here from the early 70s – the kind of wild numbers from a time when France was really breaking from some of the more familiar paths followed by American and British psych acts – as you'll hear on the set. There's loads here we'd never heard before – and titles include "Bungalow" by Triangle, "Mon Chameau" by Les Masters, "La Route" by Guy Skornik, "Wendy" by Rado Testen, "Elle Etait Belle" by Komintern, "La Petite Difference" by Jacques Filh, "L'Air Que Je Chante" by Papillon, "Les Aiguelles Du Temps" by Philippe Farre, "Rituel De Guerre" by Igor Wakhevitch, and "La Dame Deu" by Michel Zacha.

✨✧ Les BaxterSacred Idol ... LP
Capitol, 1960. Used ... Out Of Stock
A real standout set from the end of Les Baxter's run at Capitol Records – originally scored for a film that was never released, but a great set of tracks that more than stands strongly on its own! The theme here is a Mexican/Latin American one – explored by Baxter with his trademark blend of larger orchestrations and lighter exotica touches – often swirling around in an extremely evocative mode that makes us wish the film had been issued to the public, and at a few key moments even hinting at the funkier modes that would follow on some of Les' later work for other labels. Titles include "Aqueducts", "Gardens Of The Moon", "Pyramid Of The Sun", "Temple Of Gold", and "Procession Of The Princes". LP, Vinyl record album

El (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $11.99
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".
