✨✧ Tim BuckleyGreetings From LA ... LP
Warner/Straight, 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A later effort from Tim Buckley with a bigger sound and more of a straight ahead approach – with a big nod in the groove direction and some R&B creeping in! In lesser hands, Greetings From LA could be considered more of a "commercial" album than the unpredictable stylistic variances of Tim's earlier records, but his vocals and depth of passion keeps it a riveting experience. Rolling boogie piano, some vamping organ, groovy strings, and even some female chorus backing vocals bring elements of 70s soul and juke joint sounds into the mix – while Buckley's emoting is on par with earlier work – even if some of the lyrics are kind of on the bawdy side. Includes "Move With Me", "Get On Top", "Sweet Surrender", "Night Hawkin'", "Devil Eyes", "Hong Kong Bar" and "Make It Right". LP, Vinyl record album
(Gatefold pressing, with postcard missing.)

✨✧ Liz DamonLiz Damon's Orient Express ... LP
White Whale, 1971. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Very sweet, and very groovy work from Liz Damon's Orient Express – a fab Hawaiian combo with a really great sound! The group's music is sort of a mix of lounge jazz, bossa grooving, and the kind of sweet late 60s easy touches that were showing up in Brit sound library music. Liz handles lead vocals on most of the tracks with a voice that sounds like it drifted right out of Brasil 66 – and a number of other cuts have the guys in the band backing her up with some great soft rock harmonies! Titles include "1900 Yesterday", "You Make Me Feel Like Someone", "Bring Me Sunshine", "You're Falling In Love", "That Same Old Feeling", and "Close To You". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Hongthong Dao-UdonBump Lam Phloen – Essential Hongthong Dao-Udon ... CD
EM (Japan), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautiful Thai singer with a voice that maybe doesn't need any other instrumentation – given its incredibly haunting quality – but one who sounds even groovier once the music kicks in to play! The work here is mostly from the late 70s, but often has a feel that's really timeless – especially on those numbers that feature Hongthong floating out with almost no backing at all – and on other tracks, there's sort of groovy late 60s vibe – a feel that's more like Cambodian sounds from years before, with a groove that provides a really illuminating setting for the vocals. The collection is short, but really tremendous – ten revelatory tracks that will immediately show you there's still plenty of amazing music to discover on this planet! Titles include "Nong Ni Na", "Bump Lam Phloen", "Hongthong Khanong Lam", "Bo Mi Phi Thi Isan", "Isan", and "Sa-On Siang Phin". CD
Also available Bump Lam Phloen – Essential Hongthong Dao-Udon ... LP 22.99

✨✧ Bonnie DobsonGood Morning Rain ... CD
RCA/Rev-Ola (UK), 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A sweet folk pop set from Bonnie Dobson – recorded at the famous Nashville Sound Studio in Nashville, and eking out every bit of warmth it could provide, most likely in spite of RCA's intent to polish her up for mass consumption! There's a bright and buzzing sound on a number of tunes that caught us off guard – uptempo and fuzzy little groovers that have more of a rockin' lilt – which may have alienated fans of the folk revival stuff she spun, but it sounds groovy to our ears. Really nice stuff! Title include Bonnie's own tunes "Sweet Man" and "You Don't Love" – plus "Light Of Love", "You Don't Know", "Clown", "Do What You Gotta Do", "Factory Girl", "Streets Of London", "A Taste Of Honey" and more.

✨✧ Serge Gainsbourg/Michel ColombierLe Pacha/Vidocq/Comment Trouvez Vous Ma Soeur? ... CD
Rambling (Japan), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Stunning sounds from the team of Serge Gainsbourg and Michel Colombier – and maybe the most perfect example of why Gainsbourg soundtracks can be so great! First up is the duo's fab music for the film Le Pacha – a wonderful blend of trippy touches and more subtle jazzy moments, plus bits of electric sitar and bassy funk – shifting effortlessly from track to track to create a mad melange of musical grooves! Cuts include the classic "Requiem Pour Un Con", which is a funky gem – plus "Psychastenie", "Joss A La Calvados", "Un Noel 67", "Cadavres En Serie", "Batucada Meurtriere", and Brigitte Bardot singing "Harley Davidson"! Next is Vidoq – a handful of songs originally penned for a TV series in the 60s, and very unusual work from Serge! The tunes include two very offbeat vocal numbers, sung in this deep-voiced style – plus a few more serious instrumentals, but with a weird twist. Titles include "Le Mariage De Vidocq", "A Vous De Jouer", "L'Evasion", and "Chanson Du Forcat". Comment Trouvez-Vous Ma Soeur – or "how do you find my sister?" – seems like a perfect title for a film to feature music from Serge – and the music definitely follows suit! The movie's from 1964, so captures that pivotal time when Gainsbourg was shifting from classier French styles to groovy ones – both modes featured here in the instrumentals directed by Colombier, and on Serge's vocal reading of the title tune. Tracks include "Erotico Tico", "No Love For Daddy", "La Course Au Mariage", "Rendez Vous A L'Eglise", "Surboum Chez Ma Soeur", and "Quart D'Heure Americain". CD

✨✧ Harper's BizarreComplete Singles Collection 1965 to 1970 ... CD
Warner/Now Sounds (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great batch of tracks from one of our favorite groups of the 60s – the ultra-cool, ultra-groovy Harpers Bizarre – whose harmonies forever helped change the sound of Sunshine Pop! The group are well-known for their amazing albums, and the way they wove together some really magical music – but they also cut a number of great singles for Warner Brothers during the same stretch as their four full records – most of which are presented here in their original mono mixes! And as if that's not enough, the package also features a number of early singles by The Tikis – the pre-Harpers incarnation of the group, who sing here with equally great harmonies, and maybe a bit more rock and roll edge. As usual with these Now Sounds collections, the presentation is fantastic – excellent sound and great notes – and a whopping 26 tracks that include "Mad", "Malibu U", "Hey You In The Crowd", "Virginia City", "Both Sides Now", "Green Apple Tree", "Small Talk", "Poly High", "Soft Sounding Music", "Bye Bye Bye", "I've Been Dreaming", "Come To The Sunshine", and the incredibly groovy "I Love You Alice B Toklas".

✨✧ I GresI Gres Vol 1 ... LP
Cometa (Italy), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A sublime selection of work from this legendary sound library ensemble – an Italian group who were so cool, so groovy, they were virtually a genre unto themselves – able to step easily between funky numbers, jazzy groovers, and these odd, offbeat styles that are especially nice! These record wonderfully wraps together a legacy of Italian sounds from the whole late 60s/early 70s soundtrack era – served up here without any sense of ego or need for identity at all – just a commitment to cool, compelling music – filled with plenty of grooves in the process. Titles include "Restless", "Jeanette", "Les Abimes", "Wild Saxon", "Ronde Bosse", "Plancton", "Hot Dogs", "Mirelle", "Mini Bataille", and "Les Abimes". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ In Search Of Orchestra (Rinder & Lewis)Phenomena Theme (5:44, 4:10)/Afterthought ... 12-inch
AVI, 1977. Used (pic cover)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A strange but nice single! The mysterious In Search Of Orchestra play the "Phenomena Theme", which sounds like a groovy 70s TV theme, with kind of a funky, slightly disco sound to it. The flipside contains another version of this track, plus the mellow jazz track "Afterthought", a surprisingly strong number with a good stepping jazz sound to it. Rinder & Lewis produced! 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Ulrich KlatteVertigo Swirl Label – Worldwide Discography & Price Guide (2nd Edition) (hardcover) ... Book
CPG (Germany), 2010/2016. New Copy Book ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Amazing – one of the most beautiful discographies we've ever seen, put together in tribute to one of the hippest labels ever! Vertigo Records was the prog/psych arm of Philips at the end of the 60s and start of the 70s – home to a huge range of sounds, from the fuzzy of Black Sabbath, to the jazz rock of Colosseum, to the electronics of Kraftwerk – and dozens more artists who only recorded the odd single album or two! The whole label is laid out beautifully here – in a hardcover book that gives a full page to each album issued by the company – with color reproductions of the covers, including the gatefolds – track listings, session details, and other information – sometimes more than you'd find on the original record jacket! If you love the classic covers and packaging of Vertigo, you'll find this book to be every bit as great – essential for any collector of these groovy sides from way back. A hugely updated second volume – with 320 pages (double the first one!), all in color – with 400 images of every Vertigo swirl label title, inside and out – UK and German pressings, with a huge amount of details on each record. Also includes features on the singles, alternative releases, and even unreleased albums! Book

✨✧ Monica Lassen & The SoundsLa Jouissance (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Sony/Bridge (Japan), Late 60s. New Copy Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A totally wonderful little record that's every bit as sexy as you might guess from the cover – and which also has some of the groovy French elements you might expect from the title! The set's got this slinky, erotic vibe that's almost in Serge Gainsbourg territory – save for the fact that the tunes are mostly instrumental, and Monica Lassen seems mostly on the set to moan, giggle, and make other expressions of pleasure as the set goes on – a bit like the presence of a woman on a sexy French record at the end of the 60s! The music is very cool, too – somewhere in a space between late 60s European soundtrack modes and bossa nova – with lots of cool organ lines, soulful sax, captivating rhythms, and cool effects that further underscore the sound of the set – on titles that include "Dalliance In Wave", "On Rollin Yacht", "A Lodge Of Joy", "Embrace Ment", "Path For Two", and "Che Vuole Quesat Musica Stasere".

✨✧ Alan Lorber OrchestraLotus Palace ... LP
Verve, Late 60s. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An insane crazy mix of "eastern" instrumentation (sitars, tablas, etc) with groovy pop sounds of the late 60's – a perfect album in the Verve tradition, with some wonderful jazzy touches! Alan Lorber set the whole thing up – and peppered it with some great instrumentation, like tabla by Colin Wolcott, guitar and sitar by Vince Bell, and flute and tenor by Jerome Richardson. The album contains the sitar version of "Up, Up and Away" that's one of the all time eastern kitschy classics from the 60s – and it's also got loads of other great tracks, like spooky versions of "The Look of Love" and "Mas Que Nada", plus some very groovy originals like "The Flute Thing" and "Djellaba".

✨✧ Dave Mackay & Vicky HamiltonDave Mackay & Vicky Hamilton ... LP
Impulse, 1969. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the grooviest albums of the late 60s – a lost vocal treasure from the team of Dave MacKay & Vicky Hamilton! The pair were sort of like a hip version of Jackie & Roy – usually singing together on their tracks, with a mixed male/female vocal approach that sounds totally great – and which really fits the breezy mood of the tunes on the set! Dave himself plays Fender Rhodes and piano on the album – along with an odd little combo that includes flute and tenor played by Ira Schulman, percussion by Francisco Aguabella, and guest sitar by Bill Plummer. The whole thing's got an amazing feel that's equal parts groovy jazz and sunshine pop – and tunes include a great reading of Tom Scott's "Blues For Hari", Flip Nunez's classic "See You Later", and the original tracks "Jacques The Junkman", "Samba For Vicky", "Now", and "Moon Rider". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ MarkettsBatman Theme ... LP
Warner, Mid 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A classic take on the "Batman" hit of the 60s – one that moves the tune from camp TV theme to sweet rock instrumental territory – in a manner that prefaces later takes on the tune by The Who and The Jam! The track may well be the biggest ever by The Marketts – and showcases their ability to step way past the usual surf instrumental modes of the time – and work within the larger studio genius of Warner Brothers to create some very groovy sounds! Dick Glasser heads up production – and moves the music into territory that's still instrumental, yet much more varied than usual for a rock album of the type – almost soundtrack-oriented in points, but mostly handled in a small combo mode. In addition to the "Batman" hit, other titles are all caped crusader-related – and include "Dr Death", "The Joker", "Bat Cape", "Cat Women", "Bat Cave", and "Bat Signal". LP, Vinyl record album
(Gold label mono pressing. Cover has a cutout grommet.)

✨✧ Paul MauriatL'Avventura/Le Lac Majeur (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Vocalion (UK), 1971/1972. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two early 70s albums from Paul Mauriat – both surprisingly groovy! First up is a grand L'Avventura from Mauriat – a set that's different from the more spacious sounds of Mauriat's famous 60s material, with a vibe that maybe puts the whole orchestra upfront in the mix, and gives them some electric bass at the bottom to underscore a slight groove at points. Most tunes are instrumentals of tracks by French composers – and the set even features a cover of "La Decadanse" by Serge Gainsbourg – alongside "Ce N'Est Rien", "Comme Un Soleil", "Acropolis Adieu", "Il Fait Beau Il Fait Bon", and "Jesus Cristo". Le Lac Majeur has Paul Mauriat grooving with a nicely light little sound – those clean, clear charts that helped him revolutionize easy listening in the 60s – but maybe with a bit more bounce at times, in ways that almost echo 70s soundtrack material from Europe. Titles include "Summer Memories", "Laisse Aller La Musique", "La Chanson Pour Anna", "Soleil Soleil", and "Rendez-Vous Au Lavandou". CD features bonus tracks – "Let My Name Be Sorry" and "Il Cuore E Uno Zingaro". CD

✨✧ Jack MontroseArranged, Played, Composed By Jack Montrose With Bob Gordon ... CD
Atlantic/Koch, 1955. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the rare mid 50s treasures from the team of tenorist Jack Montrose and baritonist Bob Gordon – a great pairing from the LA scene of the mid century! Although both players were steeped in the sounds of their scene at the time, they also have a way of moving past cliche and common expectations – offering up music that's filled with surprise and delight, and which is always arranged with a great balance between tightness of execution and open personality of the players. Montrose arranged the album, and wrote a good number of the tunes – and other players include Paul Moer on piano, Shelly Manne on drums, and Bob Gordon on baritone – on titles that include "April's Fool", "I'm Gonna Move To The Outskirts Of Town", "A Little Duet", "The News & The Weather", "Dot's Groovy", "Cecilia", and "Paradox".

✨✧ Janko NilovicPop Impressions ... LP
Montparnasse 2000/Underdog (France), Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Nothing pop about this groovy little record – save, perhaps, for the fact that it's been sampled by a number of hip hoppers over the years – because the set's one of the greatest ever from the legendary Janko Nilovic – a real masterpiece of complex grooves and offbeat instrumentation! The album goes way past the usual sound library funk – as Janko brings in so many different sounds and styles throughout – using flute, tympani, oboe, 12 string guitar, and other unusual instruments with a very freewheeling set of grooves! The whole thing's great – a true tribute to the master at his best – and titles include "Atoma", "Trumpet Sketches", "Sacha Pacha", "Essai Pop Art", "Blow Down", "Psycho Sound", and "Ballet Dans L'Espace".

✨✧ Janko NilovicSoul Impressions ... CD
Vadim (France), Early 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the funkiest records ever cut by studio jazz genius Janko Nilovic! This set definitely earns the "soul" in the title – as Janko blends his usual mad mix of studio sounds with some heavier 70s elements – including a fair bit of fuzzy guitar, funky beats, and some nice horn fills. About half the tracks on the album benefit from this sort of approach – kind of across between blacksploitation soundtrack scoring and the tighter instrumental moods of work by The Duke of Burlington. The other half is more in Janko's usual bag – nicely groovy jazz numbers, some with a slinky 70s edge! Titles include "Hippocampus", "Open Country", "Crazy Enterprise", "Drug Song", "Soul Impressions", "Man Of Genius", "Push Push", and "Family Tree". CD
Also available Soul Impressions (180 gram pressing) ... LP 24.99

✨✧ Howard RobertsJaunty-Jolly ... LP
Capitol, 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Jaunty is a pretty darn great way to describe the Howard Roberts sound on Capitol Records – upbeat, grooving, and wonderfully well-rounded – bringing in a bit of funk, a bit of bossa, a bit of groovy, and coming up with a whole new sound in the process! Roberts guitar is wonderfully clean on the set – and sounds perfect alongside organ work from a young Dave Grusin, who's in the group alongside the always-wonderful Emil Richrads – who contributes some nice percussive touches! Titles are all pretty darn groovy – and include versions of "The Face I Love", "A Man & A Woman", "So Nice (Summer Samba)", and "Music To Watch Girls By". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Masahiko SatoBelladonna ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), 1973. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the rarest albums ever from the mighty Masahiko Sato – a Japanese musician we love for his jazz, funk, and psychedelic sounds – all of which come into play on this unusual animated soundtrack! The music is plenty trippy right from the start – very offbeat, from the instrumentation to the production to the pacing – never in a mode that's too avant, but which is very much its own thing – as Sato weaves a way forward with cool spacey keyboards, slow-brooding basslines, and these dreamy vocals from singer Chinatsu Nakayama! Some moments feel like the best funky electric Italian sound library material of the time – but there's also a lot more going on, too – including some of that great style Sato would use on other albums, when he'd blend psychedelic inspiration with very groovy jazz. Titles include "Funny Feeling", "Mr London", "Andy Warhol", "Belladonna", "The Notice Is Notice", "Take It Easy", and "TBSF". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Lalo SchifrinGone With The Wave – Modern Sounds Go Surfing ... LP
Colpix, 1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Not a surf record – but a wonderful batch of groovy groovy jazz! Lalo penned this score for a Bruce Brown-like surfing documentary in the mid 60s – but instead of the usual guitar riffing and bongo drumming on such a score, he used a lot of jagged jazzy lines – working in a bit of light bossa, some heavier Latin rhythms, and plenty of cool instrumentation! The players alone make the set worth having – especially the percussion from Milt Holland, Francisco Aguabella, and Shelly Manne – as well as the light guitar touches from Howard Roberts, Bob Bain, and Laurindo Almeida. Paul Horn plays some great alto sax and flute on the set, Victor Feldman's on piano, and Frank Rosolino's on trombone – and Lalo changes up the instrumentation from track to track to really keep the overall feel of the set incredibly fresh! Titles include "Breaks", "Gone With The Wave", "Taco Taquito", "Halieva Blues", "A Taste Of Bamboo", "Aqua Blues", "Surf Waltz", and "Breaks Bossa Nova". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ MastersoundsMastersounds (Swinging With The Mastersounds/Date With The Mastersounds) ... CD
Fantasy, 1960. Used ... Out Of Stock
Two albums back to back – both by this obscure and groovy group that featured Wes Montgomery's brothers (Buddy and Monk) on vibes and bass, plus Richie Crabtree on piano and Benny Barth on drums. The group had a piano/vibes sound that was clearly inspired by 50s work of the George Shearing Quintet or the MJQ – but given their roots in the Montgomery Brothers' Indianapolis soul jazz scene, the Mastersounds managed to swing a bit more than their contemporaries – going for a slightly exotic approach to jazz that also had lots of traces of the work of Horace Silver. The two albums on this set were both recorded in 1960 – and comprise a total of 13 tracks in all (one was omitted due to space restrictions on the CD) – with titles that include "Golden Earrings", "West Coast Blues", "Fink Fank Funk", "For Now", "Try It", and "It Could Happen To You".
