CureSeventeen Seconds (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Fiction/Elektra, 1980. Sealed (reissue)... $16.99
A haunting and relatively spare early one by The Cure that holds up incredibly well – standing true to the test of time as strongly as anything in their canon! From the perspective of fans who got into The Cure anytime from the mid 80s onward, these earlier efforts might initially sound like a moody framework for the more grandly produced records to come, give it a couple listens, because the minimal structure is incredibly strong! It's just their second album, but the eerily melodic Robert Smith vocals, his just as distinctive guitars, and then new bass player Simon Gallup's sound have The Cure mood in full semi-gloomy, yet wholly beautiful bloom! Includes the great title track, "A Reflection", "Play For Today", "Secrets", "In Your House", "Three", "The Final Sound", "A Forest", "M" and "At Night". LP, Vinyl record album
(180 gram pressing – remastered by Robert Smith! Cover has a mark through the barcode.)

Super Borgou De ParakouBariba Sound 1970 to 1976 ... LP
Analog Africa (Germany), Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $23.99
Funky and trippy at the same time – a wonderful batch of grooves from Super Borgou De Parakou – an overlooked group from Benin with a very unique sound! The rhythms are tight, and production often has these crispy little edges that make for some nice touches of fuzz where you might not normally expect – almost like psychedelic elements that creep into the music in the way the guitars and vocals are recorded! The approach is almost a garage take on Afro Funk, with some sweet 60s undercurrent that no doubt come from the production on the tunes – and which really serves to help this set stand out from the pack. As with other excellent sets on the Analog Africa label, this one's filled with rich notes on the group – helping you locate their wonderful music in a deeper cultural and historical framework – and also as usual for the label, you get plenty of music for your money – 15 tracks that include "Gandigui", "Me Ton Le Gbe", "Bori Yo Se Mon Baani", "Aske", "Ko Guere", "Dadon Gabou Yo Sa Be No 2", "Binin Hounnin", and "Sembe Sembe Boudou". LP, Vinyl record album

Paul YoungquistPure Solar World – Sun Ra & The Birth Of Afrofuturism (hardcover) ... Book
University Of Texas Press, 2016. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A great book that looks not just at the music of Sun Ra, but also the theory behind it – the special take on reality, and interstellar philosophy that made Ra as important a thinker as he was a musician! The music is approached from a theoretical framework that's extremely illuminating – especially if you only know some of the Arkestra records at face value, and not in the larger context of Sun Ra's ideas – and the author includes plenty of history to illuminate the ideas, but in ways that are nicely different than some of the previous books on the subject. The whole thing is a really great look at the transformative power of the music of Ra – that quality that's always made him far more than just another avant jazz musician, and instead a figure of inspiration and social change to decades of listeners who have followed his sound. Very well researched, with copious notes – 346 pages, hardcover. Book

Denny ZeitlinEarly Wayne – Explorations Of Classic Wayne Shorter Compositions ... CD
Sunnyside, 2016. New Copy ... $14.99 16.98
A sweet solo piano set by Denny Zeitlin – paying tribute to jazz sax legend Wayne Shorter! Zeitlin has performed Shorter compositions before, but the Early Wayne session is still a pretty wonderful surprise overall. Zeitlin is such a distinct, remarkable composer and player himself, he deftly pulls of the dual tasks of delivering a full on tribute set, but he's also able to use the ageless early Shorter tunes as a framework for some subtle improvisation of his own. Beautifully recorded at the Piedmont Piano Company in Oakland. Includes "Speak No Evil", "Nefertiti", "Ju Ju", "Teru", "Toy Tune", "Infant Eyes", "Paraphernalia", "Ana Maria", "ESP" and "Miyako". CD
