✨✧ Spooky Tooth & Pierre HenryCeremony ... LP
A&M, 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An amazing collaboration between rock group Spooky Tooth and French composer Pierre Henry – a great meeting of the minds that comes out sounding pretty darn groovy! Henry's right at the height of his "Psyche Rock" experiments here – and he inflects the band's darker style with some playful electronics and other cool sounds – really tripping things out at times, and almost creating a slight undercurrent of electric funk at others! The record's almost much more in Henry's style of work than it is in the usual Spooky Tooth one – although the group definitely brings in a brooding energy of their own that really intensifies the record. The album's got an "electric mass" style, but is much wilder than other versions of that genre from the time – and titles include "Hosanna", "Confession", "Prayer", "Offering", and "Credo".

✨✧ VariousAOR Global Sounds 1977 to 1982 ... CD
Favorite (France), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
AOR sounds from around the globe – proof that sweet, smooth 70s grooves didn't just come from studios in California and New York! The records here are all relatively obscure – mostly non-American acts, but working with a wonderfully groovy, wonderfully laidback style – nicely polished, but never too slick or commercial – and very much in that special spirit that's been lauded of late by the growing waves of AOR collectors around the globe! Most numbers come across with a nicely soulful vibe, and a fair bit of jazzy inflections – and although the pace is usually somewhat slow-stepping, there's definitely a groove in place on all these tracks! Titles include "Je Suis En Amour" by Diane Tell, "Rio Sinal Verde" by Junior Mendes, "Got To Be Lovin You" by Erik Tagg, "Peppermint Park" by Paul Hart, "Space Lady" by Ulla, "In Alto Mare" by Loredana Berte, "Neon" by Placa Luminosa, and "Lihue" by Nohelani Cypriano.

✨✧ VariousBeat At Cinecitta Vol 3 ... CD
Crippled Dick (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The latest masterpiece in this fab fab series! Like the other versions, this one grabs wild funky and groovy tunes from lost Italian exploitation films of the 60s and 70s – a virtual treasure trove of incredible tunes! The cuts blast together one into the other, rolling along on a mad groove plucked out of time, mixing crime and jazz and funk and sleaze into a blend as beautiful as the lovely set of notes inside. Some of the cuts on this CD have shown up on other compilations, but the overall quality of the packaging is incredibly high, and the set sounds great together. Tracks include "Tema Di Oscar" by Berti Pisano, "Il Profeta" by Armando Trovajoli, "L'Eta Del Malessere" by Stefano Torossi, "Amore Amore Amore" by Piero Piccioni, "Playgirl 70" by Piero Piccioni, "Right Or Wrong" by Piero Piccioni, "Crazy", by Wes & The Airdales, "Let's Find Out" by Isabel Bond, and "Quand Ero Un Bebe" by Il Cantori Moderni.

✨✧ AppleApple A Day (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Guerssen (Spain), Late 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Tripped out, melodic and groovy pop psych from Apple – a great UK group that mixes accessible tunecraft with a rugged underbelly and just enough weirdness – their excellent Apple A Day album that's up there in greatness with some of Apple's much better remembered peers. As you might guess from a group called Apple, there's a plenty of period Beatles inspiration, but also harder UK bluesy psych sounds and otherwise edgier vibes. A nice one! Includes "Let's Take A Trip Down The Rhine", "Doctor's Rock", "The Otherside", "Mr. Jones", "Queen Of Hearts Blues", "Rock Me Baby", "Buffalo Billycan", "Psycho Daisies", "Pretty Girl I Love You" and more.

✨✧ Ruud BosOriginal Soundtracks 1970 to 1974 ... LP
678 Records (Netherlands), Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Totally wonderful work from Ruud Bos – a Dutch composer who did some fantastic groups for sex films and thrillers at the end of the 60s – a good deal of which is brought together on this overstuffed set! The vibe is great – upbeat, jazzy, and very groovy – with a mix of electric instrumentation on the grooves and acoustic in the charts – very much in that same cool style that we've loved on soundtrack reissues that came from the Crippled Dick label many years back – such as work by Gert Wilden, or the legendary Vampyros Lesbos collection! This set shares a lot with those great releases – a cool mix of sexy and groovy sounds, with a quality level that matches or beats most US film material from the time – and all of these cuts were lost to the shifting sands of time for many decades, before their recent rediscovery in storage. Titles include "Fanny Catched", "Shocking View", "The Film", "A Diving Inspector", "Calling The Inspector", "Looking For A Gang", "I Can Se Her", "Hammerstein", and "Flipper". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Chicago Transit AuthorityChicago Transit Authority (SHM CD) ... CD
Warner/Rhino (Japan), 1968. Used ... Out Of Stock
The first Chicago album – presented here in all its jazzy brilliance! Back in the day, we used to wince when we heard these guys – but over the years, thanks to much rediscovery of the band by groove hounds, we've really come to like their work a lot. This first album especially has some great moments – complicated jazzy bits that you might have forgotten about, and some surprisingly groovy material that sounds a lot better than you might remember! Includes the classics "Beginnings", "Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is", "Questions 67 & 68", and "Listen" – plus the tracks "Someday", "I'm A Man", "Free Form Guitar", and "Liberation". CD

✨✧ Hongthong Dao-UdonBump Lam Phloen – Essential Hongthong Dao-Udon ... LP
EM (Japan), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... 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". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Marvin Hamlisch/Mundell LoweBananas/Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Sex But Were Afraid To Ask (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Kritzerland, 1971/1973. Used ... Out Of Stock
Two incredible soundtracks from early Woody Allen films – but as comically charming as the movies themselves! Marvin Hamlisch really outdid himself for the score to Bananas – working at a level that's much more whimsical, and much less staid than some of his better-known Hollywood scores of the 70s – with almost as much musical and stylistic changes throughout the set list as the scene settings of Allen's wonderful movie. Some tunes have a groovy 60s approach – especially the main theme – others have a bit of jazz, Latin, or other modes – and the whole thing leaps back and forth wonderfully with a great sense of energy. Titles include "El Presidente & Nancy", "Kidnapping Gone Awry", "1500 Dinners To Go/Food & Sex", "Fielding & Nancy", "Rocky Subway Ride", and "Hey Ralph How Much Is A Copy Of Orgasm". Next up is Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Sex – an even madder film in some ways – scored by Mundell Lowe in a range of groovy modes! Lowe really draws on all his experience with other 60s soundtracks – and brings into play a mix of jazzy sounds, odd instrumental moments, and some especially nice numbers that have the erotic and bossa touches you might hear on a great Italian film score. Titles include "Daisy The Sheep", "Love Potion & The Chastity Belt", "Attack Of The Giant Tit", "Romantic Moment", "The Mad Doctor", "What's Your Perversion", and "Sesso Nei Luoghi Pubblici". And as bonus tracks, the CD also features two versions of "Cause I Believe In Loving", the film version of the "Bananas" theme, and "T'ain't Nobody's Bizness If I Do" from Sleeper. CD

✨✧ Derrick Harriott & OthersDerrick Harriott – Reggae, Funk, & Soul 1969 To 1975 ... LP
Dub Store (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
The title certainly gets it right – as Derrick Harriott serves up a wonderful mix of sounds that owes plenty to American funk and soul of the early 70s – some cool Kingston covers of famous US tunes, and some other originals that are equally groovy overall! The set's one of the best that we've ever heard from the Dub Store label – and almost has a Soul Jazz level of track selection – really wonderful work that either features Derrick in the lead, or working with some hip contemporaries, in a groove that's totally great – neither straight reggae, but also quite far from more familiar funk and soul too. Titles include "Black Moses" by The Preacher, "Tougher Than Tough" by I Roy, "Brown Baby" by Derrick Harriott, "Hell Below" by Crystal Generation, "Going Back Home" by The Chosen Few, "Psychedelic Train" by Derrick Harriott, "Slippery" by Karl Bryan & The Crystalites, "Home Sweet Home" by Bongo Herman & Les, "Rescue The Children" by Junior Murvin, "Phoenix" by Noel Brown, "People Make The World Go Round" by The Chosen Few, and "Message From A Black Man" by Derrick Harriott.

✨✧ Dick HymanMoon Gas/Moog The Electric Eclectics (with bonus tracks) ... CD
MGM/Omni (Australia), 1963/1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Incredible work from the great Dick Hyman – two of his hippest electric albums back to back on a single CD, with great bonus cuts too! First up is Moon Gas – one of the greatest albums that Dick Hyman ever recorded – a mad mix of keyboards that more than lives up to its name and its wonderful cover! The album has Dick playing instruments that include electronic organs, keyboards, and ondioline – working in a "moon" oriented style that has lots of bloops and bleeps tripping over very groovy tunes, all augmented by wild wordless vocals by Mary Mayo. The whole thing's kind of like a funky Yma Sumac album, recorded on Saturn – and the whole thing's sublime, from conception, to production, to execution, and even the cover! Titles include "Moon Gas", "Space Reflex", "Maid Of the Moon", and "Desafinado". Moog is one of the coolest, grooviest moog albums you'll ever hope to buy – a wonderful foray into the new world of synthetic sounds, done by pianist Dick Hyman – who was working in a straight jazz format just a decade before! Dick turns out to be a wonderful talent on the moog – very well-suited to the record, with just the right sort of quirky, playful approach to bring the best out of the instrument – at a level that's right up there with the best by Perrey & Kingsley, and maybe even cooler – given that Dick doesn't rely nearly as much on studio tricks! All tunes are pretty bouncy, groovy, and filled with sweet moogy touches – and titles include "The Minotaur", "The Legend Of Johnny Pot", "Improvisation In Fourths", "Topless Dancers Of Corfu", and "The Moog & Me". CD features two great bonus tracks – the very funky "Give It Up Or Turn It Loose" and "Kolumbo". CD

✨✧ I GresI Gres Vol 1, 2, & 3 ... CD
Cometa (Italy), 1976. New Copy 2CD Gatefolod ... 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 three albums wonderfully wrap 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. 2CD set features all the tracks from Vols 1, 2, & 3 of the I Gres series – 38 numbers that include "Yellow Green", "Duo Balls", "Minor Bossa", "Ronde Bosse", "Hot Dogs", "Sweet Steel", "Shadow", "Wordless", "Country Point", "Corale Ostinato", "Ritmo Pampa", "To Wes", "To Jimmy", and "Moaning".

✨✧ Hugo MontenegroGood Vibrations ... LP
RCA/Victor, 1969. Used ... Out Of Stock
Pre-moog work from Hugo Montenegro – but a set that's still pretty darn groovy! The Beach Boys reference in the title is very well put, as Hugo's using some cool harmony vocals for the record – a chorus that definitely takes some of its inspiration from Brian Wilson, singing here both with lyrics, and some wordless modes – not on every track, but used enough to give the record a really Sunshine Pop sort of appeal! Other instrumentation is great too – electric bass underneath fuller strings, offbeat woodwinds, fuzzy guitar, and even a bit of whistling – which has a cool sort of electronic feel. The blend of sounds is amazing – very unique, and already showing that Montenegro's one of the hippest talents of the 60s. Titles include "Classical Gas", "Rosemary's Baby", "Night Rider", "Lady in Cement", "A Future Left Behind", "Tony's Theme", and "Good Vibrations". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Adnan OthmanBershukor – A Retrospective Of Hits By A Malaysian Pop Yeh Yeh Legend 1968 to 1971 ... LP
Sublime Frequencies, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2 LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
You might not be able to understand the lyrics, but you'll definitely be moved by the instant charm of Malaysian rocker Adnan Othman – a singer who works here in a groovy blend of fuzzy guitar, mod rhythms, and all the other great sounds we love from late 60s French and British tracks of the time! In fact, there may be more French elements at work here than some of the more typical Anglo-influenced singers in Southeast Asia at the time – especially those romping rhythms and jangly guitar lines of the yeh-yeh generation, which really get these tunes moving even before Othman comes in with his vocals. By the end of the set, Adnan's expanding his sound a bit – moving from the work with The Rhythmn Boys that takes up most of the collection, to singing with The Wanderers and Flamingoes – all documented nicely in the notes and images in the package. Titles include "Bila Kah Gembira", "Doa Ku", "Bershukor", "Sapu Tangan", "Hari Bahagia", "Berlenggang", "Merana", "Mormah", and "Hidupu Tambah Gembira". LP, Vinyl record album
(Great package – with a wonderful booklet of notes, too!)

✨✧ San Ul LimSan Ul Lim Trilogy 1977 to 1978 (3LP set with bonus 7" single – 180 gram pressing) ... LP
Seorabul/Rhythm On (Korea), 1977/1978. New Copy 3LP & 7 inch ... Out Of Stock
A trio of amazing records from this legendary Korean Group – packaged together in a limited box, with a booklet and bonus 7" single too! First up is San Ul Lim 1 – one of the coolest Korean records you'll ever hope to hear – a set recorded in the mid 70s, but done with the same sort of psychedelic blend of jazz and funk elements you'd hear in Japanese albums from the early part of the decade! These guys use lots of fuzz on their guitars – a tone that's freaky, but a style that's nicely direct – especially when mixed with the strong basslines at the bottom – which almost always set up some sort of groove before the Korean language lyrics come into the mix! Lots of these tunes are the epitome of slow funk at its best – and sound even better with the trippy inflections on guitar, and the unfamiliar language – which really keeps things interesting. Next is San Ul Lim 2 – the middle child in the mighty Seoul combo San Ul Lim's trio of albums – full of spacey, more experimental passages! If San Ul Lim 1 was the most sunshine rock oriented set, and San Ul Lim 3 flirted with hard rock, album 2 splits the difference with a little bit of groovy prog elements and lots of spacey organ! The tunes have some more languorous, moody bits that are rich with atmosphere and some really sweet work on bass, fuzzy guitars and the swirling organ – but the group's excellent ear for melody and a catchy groove are still very much intact! Last up is San Ul Lim 3 – super fuzzed out, trippy 70s psych rock from Korea's San Ul Lim – an album recorded by the Seoul rockers in the power trio format of guitar, bass and drums – but with such a fuzzy, dense tone that it's hard to fathom how on Earth they got the sound! The opening track starts in wonderfully eye-opening fashion with the buzzing guitar sound and raspy vocals – but the follow up tracks have a softer vocal tone and more of a spacey effect – kind of evocative of "Sister Ray" in the relentless buzz sounds, but with a more lilting overall vibe! Includes notes in English, but the titles are Korean – 5 tracks in all, including a mammoth 18 minute closer! Box set includes a bonus 4 track 7" EP – complete with pic sleeve replica – and a bonus book with notes in English. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Masahiko SatoBelladonna ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), 1973. New Copy ... 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

World Pacific/Elemental (UK), 1965. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Bud Shank takes on the sounds of The Beatles – and a whole host of other 60s pop stars as well – all with results that are as jazzy as they are groovy! The album's one of a few that Bud cut for Liberty in this format – alto and flute spread out over fuller backings from Bob Florence, a great arranger who knows how to make things swing by bringing in some wonderful 60s touches! There's a bit of guitar at times, some compressed horns – ala A&M – and some overall mod rhythms that help change things up nicely from tune to tune. Titles include "Michelle", "Yesterday", "Blue On Blue", "Sounds Of Silence", "Turn Turn Turn", "As Tears Go By", and "Girl". CD

✨✧ VariousChebran – French Boogie 1980 to 1985 ... CD
Born Bad (France), Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Very cool sounds from the French scene of the post-disco years – music that reflects that growing embrace of boogie rhythms on European dancefloors, but in ways that are often inflected with new wave and electro soul styles too! The music here is leaner and a lot more creative than the bigger Euro disco modes of a few years before – and often has that criss-crossing of soul, funk, rock, and post-punk modes that played big on the downtown New York scene of the early 80s – that Danceteria mode you'd hear on Ze Records, 99 Records, or other hip imprints of the time – but delivered here in a batch of tracks that are a lot more obscure! The Born Bad label has already tipped us off to groovy French sounds from the 60s, and punk work of the 70s – and this package is another one of their culture-opening gems – with titles that include "Easy Life" by New Paradise, "Play Boy En Detresse" by Style, "A Mon Age Deja Fatique" by Pierre Edouard, "La Degaine" by Trigo & Friends, "La Fourmi" by Bianca, "Gerard Vincent Par Gerard Vincent" by Gerard Vincent, "Ma Vie Dans Un Bocal" by Ich, "Les Crabes" by Attache Case, "Miam Miam Goody Goody" by Henriette Coulouvrat, and "Qu'Est Ce Qu'Il A" by Krootchey.

✨✧ VariousGroove Club 2 – Cambodia Rock Spectacular ... LP
Lion/Get On Down, 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
A pretty incredible compilation of Cambodia Rock – the best one we've come across – classic original Khmer Rock from scene pioneer Sinn Sisamouth and many more! The set as an effort to present this fun, groovy and yes, spectacular Cambodian Rock as it was originally heard by the people in its pre-Pol Pot heyday – before the original vinyl releases were hidden away and eventually circulated via low quality cassette bootlegs – and it sounds great! Awesome stuff all around, much of it with a raw garage psych vibe with fuzzed out guitars, heavy drums, woozy organ and male & female lead vocals – always with a groovy rhythm. Includes "Do You No Wrong Again" by Thra Kha Band, "Khnyom Jah Karake" by Tet Somnang & Meas Samon, "Pros Chang Reiy" and "Pail Loung Rom (Go To Dance)" by Pan Ron, "Jet Snaeh Theang Nov" and "Yuvachon Yuvatey Samai Tmai (New Generation Youth" by Sinn Sisamouth & Ros Dereysothea, "Duang Netra" and "Satt Thee Thuy" by Sinn Sisamouth, "Bong Rau Roub Khnyom" by Ros Sereysothea, "Youm Os Tirk Pnake" by Pov Vannary and more. 19 tracks on 2LPs in a nice gatefold sleeve with fairly extensive notes on the back cover and inside the gatefold.

✨✧ VariousSoft Sounds For Gentle People Vol 5 ... CD
Pet Records, Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Far out harmonies and psyche pop from the mid-to-late 60s – and another groovy batch of obscurites from the Cali scene and beyond in the Soft Sounds For Gentle People series from Pet Records! The series has only gotten deeper and groovier since the first one came out – many singles from groups that were recording for the major labels at the time, but the majority of whom are fresh discoveries to us – and if labels like Columbia, Warner Bros and Capital provided the opportunity for richer sounds and production, it's used to shoot the grooves even further out, without comprising the catchy grooves and sweetly soaring male and female harmonies. Possibly the best entry yet! 21 tracks in all: Titles include "Take A Bus" by Stix & Stonz, "Nothing Sacred" by The Johnnys, "Look At The Sun" by Mouse, "Hello" by Things To Come, "Kill The Cobra" by Bentley Road, "It's A Groovy World" by The Lollipop Fantasy, "Looking Down" by 1st Century, "Wispy Paisley Skies" by Fraternity Of Man and more.

✨✧ VariousSoul Sok Sega – Sega Sounds From Mauritius 1973 to 1979 ... CD
Strut (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Amazing music you've probably never heard before – all from the tiny island of Mauritius in the 70s, and served up in a stunning mix of funk, blues, and soul! The grooves here are very offbeat – with rhythms that belie the island's location in the Indian Ocean near Madagascar, mixed with more contemporary touches on electric guitar, bass, and keyboards – set to lyrics that are often sung in French, usually with these haunting changes and oddly melancholy modes – all of which makes for music that's every bit as emotively powerful as it is downright groovy! Strut Records have always turned us on to new and unusual sounds – but this time around, they've really done something special – and the collection is one of our favorite releases ever from the long-running label. Titles include "Afro Mauricien" by Georges Jean Louis, "Mo Mari Fini Alle" by Catherine Velienne, "Elida" by Michel Legris, "Mone Lasser Dire Toi" by Harold Berty, "Bhai Aboo" by Claudio, "Mo Parrain" by Christophe, "Manuel Bitor" by John Kenneth Nelson, "Eliza" by Georgie Joi, and "Soul Sock Sega" by Ti L'Afrique.

✨✧ Michel LegrandEVA – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Doxy, 1962. New Copy ... About October 15, 2016 (delayed)
A fantastic lost soundtrack from Michel Legrand! The score is a lightly jazzy one, done for a film starring Jeanne Moreau and directed by Joseph Losey – and the music's a perfect blend of Legrand's earlier straighter jazz work, with some of his later talent for groovy orchestrations. The overall feel is quite dark – with the kind of jazz-based soundscapes that were showing up in some other French soundtracks at the time. Titles include "Water Ski", "At The Bar", "One Morning In Roma", "Eva & Tivian", "The Wedding", and "Adam & Eve", which is sung in a vocal version by the great Tony Middleton! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Tom ClayWhat The World Needs Now Is Love ... LP
MoWest, Early 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A bit goofy, but a pretty compelling record issued on Motown's MoWest subsidiary. Tom Clay creates these groovy tracks that mix popular soul instrumentals (arranged by Gene Page and Artie Butler) with recitations that have a very righteous political feel. The single on the record, "What The World Needs Now/Abraham, Martin, & John", features Clay asking kids what prejudice is, while militaristic sound effects and JFK speeches creep in and out of the mix. The rest of the album continues this powerful kind of soundscape experiment, and it's actually a pretty resonant work that still holds up nicely today. LP, Vinyl record album
