✨✧ Caroline CrawfordMy Name Is Caroline ... LP
Mercury, 1978. Very Good ... $12.99
A killer soul set from Caroline Crawford – with production, arrangements, and songwriting by Hamilton Bohannon – soaring, beautiful, uniquely soulful sounds from the late 70s! Crawford's got a hell of a voice – equally well-suited to deeper soul ballads and uptempo groovers – and with Bohannon on board, there's plenty of groovers – although we like the mellow cuts just as much! Crawford was sort of Bohannon's big vocal discovery, and the Mercury efforts were a good use of his instrumental sound in a vocal driven framework – one that succeeds not just on the clubby soul level of his own records, but which also hits a more emotional tone than a lot of the dancefloor soul of the era. Johnny Allen contributed the string orchestrations – and titles include "Riding On Your Love", "Tell Me You'll Wait", "Coming On Strong", "It Rains Because" and "Caroline Breakdown".

✨✧ CureSeventeen Seconds (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Fiction/Elektra, 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 21.98
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 vinyl – and remastered by Robert Smith!)

✨✧ Bill FrisellIntercontinentals ... CD
Nonesuch, 2003. Used ... $3.99
Another expansive effort from Bill Frisell, finding him integrating a variety of new sounds from other traditions into his new American pastoral framework. As with other recent releases, his coloristic tone and melodic sensibility are nicely rooted, but cast here in a new group featuring Brazilian guitarist Vinicius Cantuaria, Greek musician Christos Govetas on other stringed instruments and Malian Sidiki Camara on percussion, plus Greg Leisz who's collaborated with Frisell on a number of other recordings adding some wonderful atmosphere, and violinist Jenny Scheinman. 14 tracks in all, including "Boubacar", "Good Old People", "Baba Drame", "Procissao", "We Are Everywhere" and "Eli". CD
(Out of print, missing slipcover.)

✨✧ Roxy MusicCountry Life ... CD
Virgin (UK), 1974. Used ... $5.99
The fourth album from Roxy Music – and quite possibly their best to date! The album has the group moving strongly past the Eno years, into a tighter framework that still contains many of the darker themes of earlier records. Ferry's lead vocals are incredibly majestic – rising to heights to match the European greats of years past who were his inspiration – and the group's tight blend of reeds, guitar, and moody keyboards gives the whole album an off-kilter sense of instrumentation that really sets it apart from the pack. There's an artfulness here that's never overdone, and the whole thing comes together with a magic that's impossible to describe, but which is Roxy at their best. Titles include "Out Of The Blue", "The Thrill Of It All", "Three & Nine", "Triptych", "Casanova", and "Prairie Rose". CD
(HDCD remastered pressing.)

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".

✨✧ Boogie Down ProductionsGhetto Music: The Blueprint Of Hip Hop ... LP
Jive, 1989. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Classic Boogie Down Productions circa '89 – with prime street poetry from KRS and those raw beats and absolute prime end of the 80s production! Blueprint is an apt title for a couple reasons – the beats aren't what we'd call spare, but they're raw and unvarnished – a perfect framework for KRS's clear, consise and tough rhymes. It's also the blueprint for some of the best, tough and street aware hip hop to come. Includes "Jack Of Spades", "The Blueprint", "You Must Learn", "Who Protects Us From You?", "Why Is That?", "Breath Control", and "Bo! Bo! Bo!". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing, including the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a light stain at the bottom.)

✨✧ Denny ZeitlinEarly Wayne – Explorations Of Classic Wayne Shorter Compositions ... CD
Sunnyside, 2016. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Roy ThomasBatman – The War Years 1939 to 1945 (hardcover) ... Book
Chartwell Books, 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A wealth of classic Batman comics from World War II – all brought together by comic historian Roy Thomas, who also provides a nice framework for the project! The Dark Knight is usually associated with action on the streets of Gotham City, but as with most comic book heros during WWII, he turned his talents towards stopping he Axis – both in direct confrontation, and working against spies and saboteurs – in stories served up from the early years of Batman, Detective, and Worlds Finest comics – reprinted here in vivid color and oversized pages too! The book is nice and heavy – almost 300 pages – and even if you're not drawn to the wartime stories, the whole thing's a great presentation of Golden Age tales, with classic art and stories. 298 pages, hardcover, in full color.
