Big Mean Sound MachineRunnin For The Ghost (with bonus download) ... LP
Peace & Rhythm, 2017. New Copy ... $13.99
These guys aren't mean at all – as their groove is so warm and rhythmically compelling, they feel pretty darn friendly right from the very first note! The music's a compelling hybrid of Latin, African, and other rhythmic modes – served up with a freshness that's a nice change from some of the straighter Afro Funk combos around – who often just seem to be rehashing a 70s vibe. Instead, these guys are really trying to find their own sound – sometimes by using a bit of dub or other effects – but never in a way that's overdone, or gets in the way of the acoustic musical elements at their roots. All tracks are instrumental, and were performed live for the recording – and titles include "Return Of The March", "Touring Van", "Another Grain Of Sand", "Runnin For The Ghost", "Seeing The Bigger Picture", and "Van Chatter".

✨✧ Jackie McLeanOne Step Beyond (with bonus track) ... CD
Blue Note, 1963. Used ... $6.99
An amazing album – simply groundbreaking, and a key turn for Jackie McLean! The record features a group of hip young players – including a very young Tony Williams, plus Grachan Moncur III, Bobby Hutcherson, and Eddie Kahn – all playing in a spare contemplative modernist mode that would soon become known as "new thing" jazz. The four tracks on the album – "Frankenstein", "Ghost Town", "Blue Rondo", and "Saturday & Sunday" – are extremely stark, and even Hutcherson's often-warm vibes sound harsh and metallic, especially next to McLean's razor-sharp tone. The record's a real treasure – and never too out to be unenjoyable by fans of McLean's more inside work. Extremely compelling – and we sure wish they were making them like this again! Also includes a bonus alternate of "Saturday & Sunday". CD
(Out of print pressing.)

✨✧ Lou DonaldsonGood Gracious! ... LP
Blue Note, 1963. Used ... Out Of Stock
A cool cooker from the great Lou Donaldson – and a record that's ever bit as tasty as its cover! Lou's really hitting his soul jazz stride here – stepping off his 50s bop years, and moving into a more gutbuckety groove that's delivered with wonderful accompaniment from a quartet that features Grant Green on guitar, John Patton on Hammond, and Ben Dixon on drums! The style is loose and open – and tracks are long, with tight solos, especially from Patton and Green, always a winning combination – really stepping out here with an early raw fury! Titles include "Caracas", "Bad John", "Holy Ghost", and "Good Gracious!". Nice cover, too, with a photo of Lou checking out a sexy model, while speaking the title! LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo New York pressing, with Van Gelder stamp and ear! Cover has very light wear on the back, but is great overall.)

✨✧ Dizzy ReeceSoundin' Off ... LP
Blue Note, 1960. Used ... Out Of Stock
A killer quartet session by Brit trumpeter Dizzy Reece, recorded as one of his three American albums for Blue Note during the late 50s! Unlike the other records, which featured larger groups, this album's done with a quartet – which gives Reece a chance to really take over on his solos – blowing with a sense of warm and lyricism that's not heard as strongly on the other records – really getting some great support from a rhythm trio that includes Walter Bishop Jr on piano, Doug Watkins on bass, and Art Taylor on drums. Quite different from some of Dizzy's London work of the time – and with tracks that include "A Ghost Of A Chance", "Our Love Is Here To Stay", "Blue Streak", "Eb Pob", and a nice version of "Yesterdays". LP, Vinyl record album
(Nice Japanese pressing – with obi!)

✨✧ Wallace RoneyHome ... CD
High Note, 2012. Used ... Out Of Stock
Excellent work from trumpeter Wallace Roney – the kind of dark-toned music we first started loving in his early years! And in a way, the record's got the same soulful depth as Roney's initial sessions for Muse – a simple blend of instrumentation, but one that sparkles with a fresh feeling that's all its own – thanks to that strong ear for textures and soundshapes that have always made Wallace's trumpet unique! Antoine Roney is also at the helm on soprano and tenor sax – and in addition to keyboards from Aruan Ortiz, the set also features guest organ from Doug Carn on one track. Titles include "Pacific Express", "Dawn", "Plaza Real", "Utopia", "Home", and "Ghost Of Yesterday". CD

Brian B+ CrossGhost Notes – Music Of The Unplayed (hardcover) ... Book
University Of Texas Press, 2017. New Copy ... $34.99 45.00
Fantastic photographs from B+ – an artist you might know for his important work in Wax Poetics, or his excellent album cover material – a creative talent who's grown tremendously over the years – and who's finally given his due in this beautiful book! The package is small, but deep – about the size of a 7" single, but with hundreds of pages of Cross' images – including shots of funky legends like David Axelrod or Shuggie Otis, images of LA street culture, and even photos from Brazil, Colombia, Egypt, and other farther-flung locales visited by B+ in his never-ending pursuit of global cultures! Cross gets plenty of props upfront – as the book features introductory text by both Greg Tate and Jeff Chang – but even without those notes, the hundreds of photos here are more than enough – stunning images that link the past and the future, and cross many boundaries in the process. 336 pages, hardcover, and full color throughout.

✨✧ VariousMostly Ghostly – More Horror For Halloween ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the hippest Halloween collections you could ever hope to buy – an amazing follow up to Ace Records' legendary These Ghoulish Things – and like that one, a treasure trove of oddball novelty numbers with a sweet October spirit! The work here goes way past familiar "Monster Mash" modes – and instead, really trawls the depths of late 50s and early 60s rock and roll – in search of weird tunes that make great use of odd production techniques, offbeat instrumentation, sound effects, and lots of horror film-inspired styles – a perfect blend of music for the Halloween holiday, and for all year long! The notes are as great as the music – and the set features 25 titles that include "Terrible Ivan" by Art Roberts, "The Cave" by Chuck Holden, "Dracula's Theme" by The Ghouls, "Do The Zombie" by The Symbols, "The Mad Scientist" by The Zanies, "They're Here" by Boots Walker, "The Goo Goo Muck" by Ronnie Cook & The Gaylads, "Spooky Movies" by Roy Clark, and "Sleepy Hollow" by The Last Word.

✨✧ Krzysztof KomedaFearless Vampire Killers ... CD
Harkit (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... About February 15, 2018
Vampire hunting never sounded so groovy – thanks to a sublime soundtrack by the legendary Krzysztof Komeda! The feel here is a bit like Komeda's better-known score for Rosemary's Baby – a blend of darker themes and lighter 60s styles – handled in a way that brings together dreamily drifting vocals, moodier atonal passages, and some slight hints of the modern jazz that Komeda was working on with his famous group of the time. Especially nice is the way that the album uses a floating wordless chorus – almost in the Alessandro Alessandroni mode, but spookier overall – like a vocal group of ghosts let loose from a graveyard! As cool as it is haunting – and wonderfully packaged here with notes in English and some great images too. Titles include "Herbert's Song", "Alfred In The Crypt", "Koukol Laughs", "Alfred Behind Sledge", "Sarah In Bath", "Shagal Leaving", and "Vampire Comes". CD

✨✧ Vampires Sound Incorporation (Manfred Huebler & SiPsychedelic Dance Party ... LP
Mercury/Wah Wah (Spain), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Not a real set of vampires working together to make music – but instead a mad studio collaboration from groovy German funkmeisters Manfred Huebler & Sigi Schwab – and one of the albums that formed the musical blueprint for the famous Vampyros Lesbos films from Jess Franco! This set's a very cool concept album – issued by Mercury at the end of the 60s in Germany, and immediately lost to the shifting sands of time – but with a vibe that easily rivals both the best sound library funk albums of the period, and some of the most unique German experiments to combine funk and psych! Given Huebler and Schwab's contemporary work on a lot of those projects they're perfect for the record – which mixes funky drums with Sigi's tripped-out guitars, Manfred's keyboards, and lots of other great work on electric sitar, Hammond, flutes, and lots of weird percussion. There's some cool voices that kind of drift in and out of the mix, at an abstracted level – but the whole thing's really an instrumental outing – and titles include "The Lions & The Cucumbers", "Ghosts Or Good & Bad Onions", "Drug CX9", "Psycho Contact (parts 1 to 5)", "The Message", and "Countdown To Nowhere". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 1000! Includes booklet of notes, and movie poster too.)

✨✧ JD AllenRadio Flyer ... CD
Savant, 2017. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Extremely angular work from tenorist JD Allen – working here with a quartet that's as loose on rhythms as he is on his saxophone solos – coming together in a style that's freewheeling and open-minded! The group features a strong element in the guitar of Liberty Ellman – used in ways that are sometimes quite subtle – with notes that ring out almost in the background of the work on drums by Rudy Royston, and the wonderfully powerful bass of Gregg August – whose force works in nice contrast to the more elliptical sounds coming from the drums and guitar. Allen's horn hangs somewhere in a space between both forces – shifting effortlessly through space, and twisting and turning in the process – serving up fantastic flurries of dark-edged sound on the album's long tracks. Royston is amazing – the album's a great testament to his growing power in recent years – and titles include "Daedalus", "Ghost Dance"," Heureux", "Radio Flyer", "Sitting Bull", and "The Angelus Bell".

Chamber Of ChillsChamber Of Chills Vol 3 – November 1952 to September 1953 – Issues 14-19 (hardcover) ... Book
PS Artbooks (UK), 1952/1953. New Copy Book ... $9.99 47.99
One of the amazing horror comics published by Harvey Comics in the pre-code years of the early 50s – and a publication that was noted for its wealth of creepy stories and equally chilling images! Harvey may have been the home to Casper the ghost, but on the horror tip they were something else entirely – publisher of some of the most gruesome material in the years before comics got cleaned up in the mid 50s – with some of the best artists as well! Some of these stories are a clear attempt to copy the more famous style of EC Comics, but the Chamber Of Chills material also has a charm that's all its own – a rough approach to stories, which often leads to wonderfully lurid artwork – handled in this volume by Rudy Palais, Lee Elias, Rocke Mastroserio, Bob Powell, Don Perlin, Al Avison, Howard Nostrand, Jack Abel, and others – in stories that include "The Spider Man", "Vengeful Corpse", "Nightmare Of Doom", "The Living Mummies", "Black Passion", "Terrorvision", and more. 256 pages, full color, and hardcover.

Ennanga VisionEnnanga Vision ... CD
Soundway (UK), 2017. New Copy ... $10.99 12.98
One of those records that definitely lives up to its cover – as it's not only a great mish-mash of styles, it's also got some 80s instrumental currents that might come as a surprise if you know other records on the Soundway label! The work recasts older elements of Ugandan music with old school keyboards and drum machines – all at a level that's almost in the territory of some of the best post-punk global experiments – such as work on the Crammed Discs label, and maybe some of the more creative groups from the French and Belgian scenes of the time! The notes describe the music in somewhat enigmatic terms – but there's a straightforward appeal that really makes the whole thing great – a quality that's very unique, and very different – all with a sensitive approach that never goes for easy sorts of gimmicks or tricks. Titles include "All This Blue", "Abbanna Kange", "Kampala Auto Chase", "Endongo Moogs", "Silimu", "Jaja", "New Sunshine", "Essembi", "Killing Ghosts", "Happy Birthday Wonder", and "Otim's War". CD

German OakDown In The Bunker (3CD set) ... CD
Bunker/Now Again, 1972. New Copy 3CD ... $18.99 20.98
One of the darkest albums of the Krautrock scene in the 70s – an album that was actually recorded in a WWII-era bunker – where the duo were free to open up their instruments, jam for a very long time, and play with the sorts of effects and techniques you might know from bigger groups of the period! Yet there's a brooding quality here that's different than Can, Faust, or other groups – maybe because German Oak were a duo without a very clear path forward, and also because recording an album in an underground concrete bunker was bound to produced some weird vibes on the session! One of the group members recalls in the notes that in the space, he couldn't help thinking of the trauma of WWII – and you can definitely hear that in the music, and see it in the look of the package – which carries tunes that include "Screaming Skeletons", "Missile Song", "Belle's Song", and "Nothing". This fantastic package offers up some great notes from the group – in both German and English – and also adds in rare material too – the tracks "Bear Song", "Happy Stripes On Cats", "Ghost Guitar", "Belle's Song (extended)", "Python Vs Tiger", "Giant Rock Boulder Golem", "Missle Song (extended)", "Harpy & Peregrine", and "Bear Song (alt version)".

Columbia, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Kenyon Hopkins at his finest – informed by jazz, but scored with a bit more seriousness overall – in that late 50s style that oozes social consciousness from the very first note! The score's a lot more put together, and somewhat more restrained than the film – almost a jazz score in itself, but with fuller orchestrations overall, conducted by Ray Heindorf. Smiley Lewis plays a bit of piano on the set, and titles include "Fire & Baby Doll", "Doctor & Archie", "Baby Doll's Fright", "Ghosts", and "The Confession". LP, Vinyl record album
