Doctors Of MadnessPerfect Past – The Complete Doctors Of Madness (Late Night Movies All Night Brainstorms/Figments Of Emancipation/Sons Of Survival/bonus tra ... CD
RPM/Polydor (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 3CD ... $22.99
Fantastic work from Doctors Of Madness – a group who have this amazing sound that not only prefaces punk and later dark 80s modes, but which also seems to link their sound back to some of the early 70s experiments of the David Bowie generation! The group can move loud and fast in ways that seem years ahead of their time – especially given that the first album here came out in March of 1976 – but they also have a slightly-creepy vibe at times – not goth, but pre-goth – like some of the early 80s groups who had a strong inspiration from Bowie and some of the glams. The whole thing is a real revelation – especially if you've only heard some of their music, but not that much at once – and the box set features three full albums, plus lots of bonus tracks – including demos and rare recordings – and a live concert too. Titles include "50s Kids", "Waiting", "Mitiz's Cure", "Mainlines", "B Movie Bedtime", "Brothers", "Suicide City", "Out", "Cool", "Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye", and "Into The Strange". CD

✨✧ Elvin JonesMain Force ... CD
Vanguard/Comet (Italy), 1976. Used Gatefold ... $22.99
An excellent and easy to overlook sidebar in Elvin's 70s career. Though he didn't cut many LPs for Vanguard, this is a nice piece of electric jazz, with a small group based around Elvin, Ryo Kawasaki on guitar, Pat LaBarbera on reeds and Dave Williams on bass. They're augmented on an number of cuts by Dave Liebman, Frank Foster, Steve Grossman and keyboardist Al Dailey, and the vibe is nicely groove oriented, but with some excellent moments of outward exploration that is reminiscent of some of Elvin's other wonderful recordings from the same era. 5 songs in all: "Salty Iron", "Sweet Mama", "Mini Modes", "Philomene" and "Song Of Rejoicing After Returning From A Hunt".

VariousEthiopiques Volume 16 – Asnaqetch Werqu: Lady With The Kyar ... CD
Buda (France), 1974/1976. New Copy ... $12.99 16.99
Tremendously enigmatic work from Ethiopian singer/musician Asnaqetch Wergu – 70s recordings that feature mostly her thin, reed-like vocals, with instrumental backing by the "krar" – a lute-like instrument of triangular shape, featuring tightly-drawn strings that are plucked in quick fashion by the singer. Like other volumes in this great series, the tunes on this 16th set of Ethiopiques are totally unique – and have an other-worldly sound that needs to be heard to be believed! CD

✨✧ GurdjieffHarmonium Improvisations ... LP
Mississippi, 1949. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Haunting work by the enigmatic Gurdjieff – pulled from lost wire and tape recordings, and beautifully remastered for the set! Gurdjieff was perhaps known best for his work as a mystic, philosopher, and spiritualist – but he also had an amazing approach to the harmonium, one that was informed by his theories on life and energy – and which brought some amazing sounds out of the instrument! The material was all recorded in 1949 – and has this elliptical, stretched-out quality that went on to influence a number of later keyboardists – including Keith Jarrett and others! Great silkscreened cover – and the LP features 7 improvised tracks in all. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ JunieJunie – The Westbound Years ... CD
Westbound (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A much needed look at one of the most enigmatic figures in 70s funk – an offbeat character who was always up to something different and unique! Walter "Junie" Morrison had the great honor of being a member of both of Westbound's biggest collectives (although not necessarily at the same time) – the hard funky Ohio Players, and the cosmic brotherhood of Funkadelic/Parliament! During the mid-70s, though, Junie embarked upon a solo career, and cut a few wild LPs for the label which mixed funk, soul, and even some strange rock-oriented leanings. The resulting recordings were some of the more messed-up that Westbound ever issued, with moments that are delightfully funky, and others that are downright silly. This sweet 20 track compilation brings together most of the best moments of Junie's Westbound Years, and includes cuts like "Johnny Carson Samba", "Walt's Third Trip", "Tight Rope", "Cookies Will Get You", "Super J", "Super Groupie", and the great "Granny's Funky Rolls Royce", featuring the Funky Granny from "Funky Worm"!

✨✧ Johnny LytleVillage Caller ... LP
Riverside, 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A funky vibes classic – and a landmark set from Detroit vibist Johnny Lytle! The set's one of the purest examples of Johnny's great early groove – a tightly stepping version of soul jazz that played big in the clubs at the time, and which has forever made Lytle one of the favorites of the mod jazz dance circuit! Lytle mixes his own heavy work on vibes with some great work from his regular trio members Milt Harris on organ and William "Peppy" Hinnant on drums – augmented here by some additional bass from Bob Cranshaw and percussion from Willie Rodriguez. The sound is strong and tight – arguably even more classic than that of Lytle's Tuba recordings – and the title cut "Village Caller" is a wonderfully angular groover that still gets heavy play in Chicago to this day! Other tracks include the modal dancer "Kevin Devin", plus the tracks "Pedro Strodder", "Green Dolphin Street", "Solitude", and "Unhappy Happy Soul". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ike QuebecComplete Blue Note 45 Sessions Of Ike Quebec (Mosaic) ... CD
Blue Note/Mosaic, Late 50s/Early 60s. Used 2CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The "flipside" of Ike Quebec's legendary run of albums for Blue Note – a huge set of material recorded only as 45 singles during his same stretch at the label! Although Quebec's work as a soulful tenorist has been well documented and reissued over the years on albums like Blue & Sentimental and Heavy Soul, Ike also cut a fair number of singles aimed at the jukebox and radio crowds of the time – tunes that were more in the gutsy tenor and organ mode recorded by labels like Prestige or Chess, and which never made it onto any of the full-length sets for Blue Note! This great little package brings together all of Ike's 26 tracks recorded for 45s in the late 50s and early 60s – material that features organ on most numbers, played by either Ike Quebec, Sir Charles Thompson, or the enigmatic Edwin Swanston. Quebec's tone and phrasing is similar to his Blue Note LP work of the period, but there's also a more relaxed, and more punctuated feel to these recordings – one that's not as rough or raw as other jukebox tenor stars of the time, but which still steps out past the usual Blue Note poise, especially on the original numbers. Some tracks were briefly issued on the 80s collection With A Song In My Heart, and in a Mosaic box – but this is the first proper Blue Note album of the material. Titles include "Buzzard Lope", "Zonky", "Blue Monday", "Later For The Rock", "Dear John", "Blue Friday", "Ill Wind", "Mardis Gras", "Everything Happens To Me", "Me N Mabe", "All The Way", "Intermezzo", "All Of Me", and "Imagination". CD

✨✧ Jason AdasiewiczRolldown ... LP
482 Music, 2008. Used ... Out Of Stock
Wonderful work from one of the most compelling players on the Chicago scene of the past few years – vibist Jason Adasiewicz, a player whose sound is really taking the instrument one step further in its evolution! The group here features some equally fresh-voiced Chicago talents too – Josh Berman on cornet, Aram Shelton on alto sax, Frank Rosaly on drums, and Jason Roebke on bass – all players who realy match the inventive energy of Adasiewicz's lead – almost a "new thing" vibe at times, especially given that his fragmented use of vibes takes us back to some of Bobby Hutcherson's most adventurous recordings of the 60s. Vinyl has a slightly different track list than the CD – with titles that include "Good Looking Android", "Creep", "Little Screw (alt take)", "Small Potatoes", "Valerie", and "Defense".

Jan & DeanFilet Of Soul Redux – The Rejected Master Recordings ... CD
Liberty/Omnivore, 1965. New Copy ... $15.99 16.99
One of the strangest records ever made – and a set that, in late 1965, may well put Jan & Dean ahead of The Beatles or Beach Boys for very experimental production! The set features the duo's original, rejected version of the album Filet Of Soul – not the one that was issued on album back in the 60s, but the set that the group recorded in a bizarre melange of music, sound effects, and even a bit of stoned-out jokes – all standing next to their familiar records like The Monkees' Head stood next to their TV show! The pair were always pretty goofy in their live sets, and that definitely comes through here – as the core part of the music was live, then augmented in the studio – but they're also even more over the top in their presentation here, and either sound completely light-headed from long hours in the studio, or from some other substance instead. There's a few of the familiar songs that were heard on the final album – but they're layered here in so many different odd elements and sounds, the result is like some baroque collage of 60s pop and studio extremes. Titles include "Prelude/Honolulu Lulu", "Boys Down At The Plant/Cathy's Clown/Pigeon Joke", "Beatle Part Of Our Portion/Rhythm Section Introduction/Michelle/Whistling Dixie", "We Want Jan & Dean/Norwegian Wood", "You've Got To Hide Your Love Away", and "Hang On Sloopy/Jan & Dean They'll Be Back".

Louvin BrothersFirst Steps – The Early Recordings ... CD
Rural Routes, Early 50s. New Copy ... $11.99 15.98
Sublime sounds from the legendary Louvin Brothers – heard here on a collection of tracks recorded before their more famous years at Capitol Records – for labels that include Decca, Apollo, and MGM! Yet even at this early point, the brothers are fantastic – graced with a harmony sound that was both rooted in the hills, and which would become a huge influence on rock and folk generations to come – often just backed by simple guitar and mandolin backings, which usually don't offer the pyrotechnics of contemporaries like Bill Monroe – lest they get in the way of the vocals – yet still have a way of ringing out with a fantastic sort of depth. Titles include "Weapon Of Prayer", "Alabama", "Seven Year Blues", "The Get Acquainted Waltz", "You'll Be Rewarded Over There", "Robe Of White", "The Sons & Daughters Of God", "Childish Love", and "The Great Atomic Power".

Charles MingusComplete Candid Recordings Of Charles Mingus (3CD set) ... CD
Candid/Mosaic, Early 60s. Used 3CDs ... $119.99
A complete collection Charles Mingus' classic recordings for the Candid label – far and away some of the best recordings he ever made, and some of the few studio sessions that really let him stretch out and do his thing! Players here are a firey lineup of young modernists that includes Eric Dolphy, Ted Curson, Charles McPherson, Booker Ervin, Paul Bley, Roy Eldridge, Tommy Flanagan, Jimmy Knepper, Jo Jones and Dannie Richmond – all working here with Mingus on really long tracks that burst out with raw emotion, intense energy, and some really searing solo work! 17 tracks spread out over 3CDs, with titles that include "Lock Em Up", "MDM", "Stormy Weather", "Folk Forms No 1", "Original Faubus Fables", "Bugs", "All The Things You Could Be If Sigmund Freud's Wife Was Your Mother", "Mysterious Blues", "Melody From The Drums", "Vasserlean" and "Wrap Your troubles In Dreams" CD

VariousSenegal 70 – Sonic Gems & Previously Unreleased Recordings From The 70s ... CD
Analog Africa (Germany), 1970s. New Copy ... $22.99
Sweet sounds from 70s Senegal – a nation whose music was overflowing with Cuban influences at the time – which resulted in this amazing hybrid of Latin and African styles in the rhythms! The collection's one of the best to dip into the Senegalese groove we've ever heard – as it doesn't just pull together famous tracks, but also includes some rare and unreleased numbers that really illuminate this unusual style – cuts with a very complicated, sophisticated approach to their grooves – often topped with amazing instrumentation on reeds, piano, and guitar! As usual with other Analog Africa sets, the presentation is stunning – with a huge amount of notes and images that are well worth the price of the package alone – which ensures that the whole thing packs a very heavy cultural punch. Titles include "Sanga Te" by Orchestre Laye Thiam, "Ma Penda" by Orchestre Bawobab", "Kiko Medina" by Tropical Jazz, "Marlama" by Fangool, "Bour Sine" by La Saourouba De Louga, "El Carretero" by Amara Toure & Le Star Band De Dakar, "Africa" by Orchestre GMI, and "Ndlourel" by Gestu De Dakar.

✨✧ Barbara & The BrownsCan't Find Happiness – The Sounds Of Memphis Recordings ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The first-ever full length collection of work by Memphis singer Barbara Brown – a vocalist who appeared both as a solo act, and with her sisters – on a variety of singles for labels like Cadet, Atlantic, Tower, and MGM in the late 60s and early 70s! Barbara's got a deep, rich voice that's clearly schooled in gospel, but pointed towards more secular ends – an approach that's very much in keeping with the best late 60s wave of soul from Atlantic Records, and which is carried off here with a sharpness and precision that's simply mindblowing! Why Brown never scored bigger is a real mystery to us, because these tunes come off like the cream of the crop of southern soul at the end of the 60s – not just obscurities for obscurity sake, but some of the highest level of soul a female soul singer could hope for at the time! The 20 track package features great notes on Brown's career, and on the tunes – a decent portion of which are previously unissued, too. Titles include "Man Around The House", "Can't Find No Happiness", "Pity A Fool", "Big Party", "Watch Dog", "You Don't Love Me", "Plenty Of Room", "I'm Gonna Start A War", "Things Have Gone To Pieces", "Great Big Thing", "Play Thing", and "If I Can't Run To You I'll Crawl".

✨✧ Principal Edwards Magic TheatreWorks 1969 to 1971 – Albums, Demos, BBC Sessions, & Live Recordings (3CD set) ... CD
Dandelion/Cherry Red (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 3 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A triple header of music from this legendary group – two albums, and a bonus disc of rare material too! First up is the group's self-titled set – one that also goes under the name of Soundtrack – a record that's a bit folksy, a bit psychedelic, and certainly trippy and theatrical enough to get the attention of even the most jaded popster in the 60s – Principal Edwards Magic Theatre were a completely unique group who had the extra benefit of strong early support from legendary BBC DJ John Peel, who produced the album for his own Dandelion label! There's a sound here that's eerie and almost ancient at times – that post-hippie sensitivity to the past, often expressed here with folksy instrumentation and poetic themes, but never in a mode that's too dippy or silly. At some level, a few of these tunes have the same fragile folksy mode as the Bridget St John records on Dandelion – but overall, the sound is much looser, freer, and more collaborative. Titles include "Enigmatic Insomniac Machine", "Third Sonnet To Sundry Notes Of Music", "To A Broken Guitar", and "Death of Don Quixote". Next is The Asmoto Running Band – the second album from Principal Edwards Magic Theatre – and arguably even better than the first, thanks to some really focused production from Nick Mason! The sound here has more of the building elements of psychedelia you'd expect from Mason's history with Pink Floyd – and a bit less of the flowery looseness of Principal Edwards' debut – and the new focus is a really welcome addition, as it helps the group find a new level of power in their music they might never have attained! There's still plenty of folksy instrumentation and trippy themes in the tunes – but the guitars are more electric, the studio tricks more dynamic, and the overall record is a much more pleasing bit of ear candy that stands up well to the test of time. Titles include "Freef", "Total Glycerol Esther", "Mc Alpine's Dream", and "Asmoto Running Band". CD 3 features a huge amount of unreleased material – including some BBC Top Gear sessions, some Live At Hampstead tracks, and demos – plus the bonus tracks "Lament For The Earth" and "Ballad Of The Big Girl Now & The Mere Boy".

Aquarius SoundsDubbing At Aquarius Studios 1977 to 1979 ... CD
Jamaican Recordings (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... $13.99
Heavy dub from the enigmatic Aquarius Studios on the Kingston scene of the late 70s – the creative center of Herman Chin-Loy – whose work on the scene not only helped shape the sound of dub music for the future, but also launched the career of Augustus Pablo! The work here is mostly stripped-down, and created from cuts that were wholly or partially recorded at Aquarius – with additional work by King Tubby, over rhythms by Soul Syndicate, High Times Players, and Aggrovators Band! The vibe here definitely lives up to Herman's famous Aquarius Dub album – and titles include "Cheater Dub", "Mix Up Dub", "Breaking Dub", "She Gone Dub", "Roaming Dub", "Emperor Dub", "Short Man Dub", and "Olives Dub".

Herb Geller with Mark MurphyRhyme & Reason (Atlantic pressing) ... LP
Atlantic, 1975. Very Good ... $11.99
One of the most amazing albums ever cut by reedman Herb Geller – a really unique overseas session from the 70s, and quite different than his initial recordings of the 50s! Herb's working here in a cool mix of electric and acoustic modes, with a vibe that's very much in the best funky MPS style – and the set also features some excellent vocals from Mark Murphy, who sings in this spacey, stretched-out way that's some of his hippest work on record – very much at the best level of his early 70s recordings for Muse! Tracks are quite long, and very hip – with long instrumental passages which are then augmented wonderfully by the vocals. Herb himself plays tenor, alto, soprano sax, and a number of flutes – and other players include Rob Franken on Fender Rhodes and Arp, Philip Catherine on guitar, Wolfgang Schluter on vibes, Palle Mikkelborg on trumpet, and Gottfried Bottger on moog and organ! Titles include the wonderfully spacey "Space A La Mode", a nice slow electric builder – and the classic "Power Of A Smile" – plus "Sudden Senility" and "Rhyme & Reason Time" – the last of which features vocals by Earl Jordan, not Murphy. LP, Vinyl record album
