Ruben & The Jets (Frank Zappa)Cruising With Ruben & The Jets ... LP
Verve, Late 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $19.99
Frank Zappa's amazing tribute to the sounds of LA that inspired him in his youth – not just the early rock and roll of the late 50s, but the way the music was picked up and given a home by the scene in East LA! There's a surprising amount of nascent soul elements in the music here – especially the early harmony groups, who Frank's clearly paying tribute to with The Jets – sometimes dealing with subject matter that goes way beyond what most of those groups would have touched – but other times, right in line with the most heartfelt sounds of the 60s! Titles include "Deseri", "How Could I Be Such A Fool", "Cheap Thrills", "No No No", "Anyway The Wind Blows", "Stuff Up The Cracks", and "Jelly Roll Gum Drop". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing.)

Frank ZappaChunga's Revenge ... LP
Bizarre/Reprise, 1970. Very Good Gatefold ... $14.99
One of the most jamming Zappa albums from the early days – a set that's still got some of Frank's complicated musical leanings in play – but which features interpretation by a smoking group who no doubt helped the great one reach a much larger audience! George Duke plays lots of organ and heavy keyboards – and other players include Aynsley Dunbar on drums, giving the whole thing a great punch at the bottom – plus Mothers luminary Ian Underwood on more keyboards and electric alto sax, Jeff Simmons and Max Bennett on bass, and Frank himself on some mighty amazing guitar! Titles include "The Clap", "Chunga's Revenge", "Tell Me You Love Me", "The Nancy & Mary Music", "Twenty Small Cigars", and "Would You Go All The Way". LP, Vinyl record album

Frank ZappaHot Rats ... LP
Bizarre, 1969. Very Good Gatefold ... $29.99
One of those records that should be an insane dark mess, given the look of the cover – but which turns out to be a surprisingly well put-together effort all the way through! Zappa does a great job of hiding behind his hair here – never acting with the pomp that a pop genius like him could easily have enacted – and instead passing off the record as if it's just another freakout – despite the fact that the arrangements are some of his tightest, most focused, and downright groovy so far! There's plenty of key musical help to make the whole thing come out right – including bass from Shuggie Otis, the inimitable voice Captain Beefheart, on the cassic "Willie The Pimp", violin from Jean-Luc Ponty, drums from Paul Humphrey, and bass from Max Bennett – all players who really live up to the musical complexity of Zappa's compositions – often with a pre-fusion vibe that's almost unexpected. Other titles include "Son Of Mr Green Grass", "The Gumbo Variations", "It Must Be A Camel", "Peaches In Regalia", and "Little Umbrellas". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ George DukeShine On – The Anthology – Epic Years 1977 to 1984 ... CD
Epic/Soulmusic.com (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $18.99
A tremendous run of music from the great George Duke – an artist who'd already spent many years in the jazz and soul world before hitting his time at Epic Records – where he really took off on a great run of tracks like this! Duke started out as a straight jazz player in the 60s, then worked a bit with Frank Zappa on some really far-out sounds – and also got the chance to cut a run of fantastic spacey fusion sets for the MPS label – all experience that gave him plenty of time to try out new ideas on the keyboards, and find the right sort of space for his musical soul. At Epic, George took all those ideas and experience, and forged them down into some wonderful sounds that effortlessly blended soul, jazz, funk, and fusion – to a level that instantly made Duke the leading light in his field, and a creative talent who helped give exposure to a lot of other artists too. This smoking set features 38 tracks from those years – a really wonderfully-chosen collection that does a great job of touching all the right bases, and including some of our favorite George Duke material from the Epic recordings! Titles include "Reach For It", "Scuse Me Miss", "Yeah We Going", "Dukey Stick (parts 1 & 2)", "I Am For Real", "Movin On", "Pluck", "Brazilian Love Affair", "Games", "Shine On", "Dream On", "Reach Out (parts 1 & 2)", "Secret Rendezvous", "Heroes (voc)", "Dukey Stick (long version)", "Party Down", "Son Of Reach For It", "Finding My Way", "Positive Energy", "Thinking Of You", "Celebrate", "You Are The Light", "Say That You Will", "You & Me", "Don't Let Go", and "The Way I Feel".

Judy Henske & Jerry YesterFarewell Aldebaran (starburst vinyl pressing) ... LP
Straight/Omnivore, 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
An album as tripped-out as its cover – served up by ex-folkie Judy Henske, and underground talent Jerry Yester – who you may know from his work in the studio, and his stint in The Lovin Spoonful! The sounds here, though, are completely different from anything you might expect from the duo's heritage – weird and wild enough to get original issue on Frank Zappa's Straight label – and years ahead of its time! Henske can draw vocally on a longer legacy of folk, but transform her approach with much more of a mind-blown late 60s style – which really gets opened up by Yester's contributions, which really have that special spark he brought to his production work for other artists – and which can bring sinister currents to some of the songs. Titles include "Snowblind", "Horses On A Stick", "Three Ravens", "Raider", "Rapture", "Charity", and "Farewell Aldebaran". LP, Vinyl record album

Mojo Special EditionMojo Special Edition – Mojo 60s – Celebrating Rock's Decade Of Cool ... Magazine
Mojo, 2016. New Copy ... $15.99
The cover's got a huge look at Jimi Hendrix in 1966 – with a 24 page look at 264 days in his career during the year – and the issue's also got lots of other great features, too – including a great article on The Creation, a look at the duo of Serge Gainsbourg and Brigitte Bardot, the early years of Frank Zappa, and pop geniuses The Lovin Spoonful! There's also a pull-out poster of Pete Townshend and Jeff Beck – plus other articles on Bobbie Gentry, Son House, William Bell, Love, and The Shadows! Magazine

Jean-Luc Ponty with George DukeLive In Los Angeles (aka Jean-Luc Ponty Experience With The George Duke Trio) ... LP
Liberty/Sunset (UK), 1969. Near Mint- ... $6.99
A better album than you'd expect – without any of the too-familiar modes of either players' later albums! At the time of this set, George Duke and Jean-Luc Ponty were both playing with Frank Zappa – but they're breaking out of the hippie weirdness here to get a bit more serious – working through some long, extended modal grooves that rank with the best MPS work by either player – especially their early recordings! Duke's on electric piano, ringing out in a weird spacey sound, and Ponty's violin is mostly restrained, used to cast waves of sound over the top of the tracks, in a way that works well with Duke's soulful resonant approach. Titles include "Foosh", "Cantaloupe Island", and "Starlight Starbright". LP, Vinyl record album

TaivaanvuohiPop Liisa 4 – 1973 (with bonus download) ... LP
Svart (Finland), 1973. New Copy ... $22.99
Searing prog from Taivaanvuohi – one of those hard-burning Finnish groups that made that nation's scene so amazing back in the 70s! There's a dexterity here that rivals the best UK, Italian, or German groups of the time – a post-fusion blend of electric elements and reed lines – all set to complex rhythms, but opening up with some more emotive solo lines too – a tunefulness that goes way beyond simple jamming! Tarmo Rosenlund provides the vocals, but the instrumental side of the group is often more prominent – especially the alto and flute lines from Pertti Paivinen, and guitar from Sami Hurmerinta – both driven on strongly by the excellent bass and drums. Titles include "Forward Bound", "Drop Drag", "Shedding", "Gloom/Muukalaiset Yossa", and a version of Frank Zappa's "Orange County Lumber Truck". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Wigwam/TaivaanvuohiPop Liisa 3 & 4 – 1973 ... CD
Svart (Finland), 1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Two sets of rare recordings from the Finnish Broadcasting vaults – both issued here for the first time! Wigwam have an approach that's maybe tighter and more song-focused than some of the more freewheeling, progressive Finnish rockers of the time – a style that still stretches out, but which has some of the focus of the UK jazz rock scene of the start of the 70s – as bold instrumental solos mix with more personal vocal moments, including some English language lyrics! The group features Jukka Gustavson on organ and Jim Pembroke on electric piano – both of whom sing – plus electric bass from Pekka Pohjola, who also did some fusion work in the 70s, and drums from Ronnie Osterberg. The focus on keyboards without guitar makes for a nicely unique sound – as does the group's ability to soar one moment, and come back to earth the next – on titles that include "Grass For Blades", "Fairyport", "Nipistys", "Marvelry Skimmer", and a version of John Lennon's "Imagine". Next up is searing prog from Taivaanvuohi – one of those hard-burning Finnish groups that made that nation's scene so amazing back in the 70s! There's a dexterity here that rivals the best UK, Italian, or German groups of the time – a post-fusion blend of electric elements and reed lines – all set to complex rhythms, but opening up with some more emotive solo lines too – a tunefulness that goes way beyond simple jamming!
