✨✧ MonkeesHeadquarters (2CD expanded edition) ... CD
Rhino, 1967. Used 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the best ever efforts from the Monkees – really the first album where Mickey, Peter, Davy and Mike took creative control from the TV people – and created and album of groovy late 60s pop to rival those of their influences! Headquarters famously features a lot more original material than previous LPs – and it still sounds remarkably fresh! It really doesn't feature any of their huge hits, so it stands up really well without the crutch of nostalgia! Titles include "You Told Me", "I'll Spend My Life With You", "Band 6", "I Can't Get Her Off My Mind", "Mr Webster", "Sunny Girlfriend", "Zilch", "No Time", "Early Morning Blues And Greens", "Randy Scouse Git". Each CD in this loaded special edition includes 11 bonus tracks: disc one (stereo) includes stereo remixes of "All Of Your Toys", She Hangs Out", "Love To Love", "99 Pounds" and more. Disc two (mono) includes mono mixes of "All Your Toys", "A Little Bit Of Me, A Little Bit Of You", demo versions of "Nine Times Blue" and "Midnight Train", "Peter Gunn's Gun", "Jericho" and more! CD

✨✧ Ennio MorriconeL'Uccello Dalle Piume Di Cristallo (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1969. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A legendary score by Il Maestro from 1969, and the kind of work that shows the influence he had on other composers (and filmmakers) for years to come! The score is an amazing blend of voices, keyboards, and off-kilter orchestral sounds that feel almost electronic at times. The whole thing's a work of incredibly subtle beauty, with a style and feeling that will seep into your brain and haunt you for days. If you've cut your teeth getting into Italian soundtracks through the "Easy" series – check this one out, and move up to a more sophisticated (yet still pretty darn groovy) level. Titles include "Piume De Cristallo", "Corsa Sui Tetti", "Se Sei Stonato", "Violenza Inattesa", "Silenzio Nel Caos", and "Svolta Drammatica". CD features 10 bonus tracks in stereo! CD

✨✧ Paz AntiguanaTropical Soul/First Round ... 7-inch
Holy Cane Spirit (France), 2013. Used (pic cover)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A groovy take on Latin Soul from this ultra-chic French combo! "Tropical Soul" bubbles along with soulful trombone in the lead, and this cool piano line dancing over percussion – while two female singers work together to create a very sunny vibe on the lyrics! "First Round" is jazzier, with great sounds from the twin trombones – and a piano part that really takes off once things get going! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Oscar Peterson & Milt JacksonReunion Blues ... LP
MPS, 1971. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The piano of Oscar Peterson meets the vibes of Milt Jackson – and the result is a wonderfully groovy set! We can't remember when the 2 players had worked together before in order to have such "reunion" – but they work together beautifully on this session, with Jackson's vibes bringing in a whole new range of colors, tones, and sounds to the usual Peterson set! As with the other MPS recordings in Oscar's career, the sound here is impeccable – very well done, and in a way that has the ringing tones of both players floating in air beautifully next to each other. Ray Brown's bass and the drums of Louis Hayes complete the group – and titles include "Satisfaction", "Dream Of You", "When I Fall In Love", "Red Top", "Reunion Blues", and "Some Day My Prince Will Come".

✨✧ Piero PiccioniColpo Rovente (180 gram pressing) ... LP
GDM/Beatball (Korea), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the first great soundtracks we ever heard from Piero Piccioni – and still one of the best! Colpo Rovente has this really special sort of sound – jazzy, but not really jazz – bassy, but not really funky – and often done with spare, stark sounds – but never in a way that's too atonal or horror-based either! Piccioni brought a really special sort of genius to the record – a way of using each instrument with a very unusual sound or tuning – and isolating each element in just the right way, but with a different style than that used by Morricone at the time. Some tracks get nice and groovy, but lots more hang back in a style that's almost pensive – and titles include "Kintabu", "Blackflower", "Colpo Rovente", "Easy Dreamer", "Chinatown Drugs", and "LSD". CD features 12 bonus tracks – all unreleased alternates! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Pop LeviReturn To Form Black Magick Party ... LP
Counter, 2007. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Modern glam power pop from Super Numeri member Pop Levi – a world away from the former's proggy tendencies – and a groovy slice of modern rock that's about as much fun as we've had with rock music in the past couple years! There's an energetic, hooky bounce to Pop Levi's groove that pushes him well above and beyond so many trendy scenesters – and a clean, catchy 70s reverent approach that still sounds of now. This guy needs to be a star, and soon! Titles include "Sugar Assault Me Now", "Blue Honey", "A Style Called Crying Chic", "Pick Me Up Uppercut", "Skip Ghetto", "Dollar Bill Rock", "See My Lord", "Hades' Day", "From The Day That You Were Born" and more.

✨✧ 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

✨✧ Bud ShankMichelle ... LP
World Pacific, 1965. Used ... Temporarily 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". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Piero UmilianiL'Arcangelo ... CD
Rambling (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the grooviest soundtracks we've ever heard from the mighty Piero Umiliani – a sparkling set that's filled with jazzy scatting, mod instrumentation, and loads of other wonderful 60s touches throughout! The music has that special Italian sound that's built on bossa that you'll find in some of the coolest soundtracks from Umiliani's generation – and like the rest, it really takes off in its own unique direction – with soaring, seductive sounds that live quite vibrantly away from the screen! The whole thing's right up there with bossa jazzy classics like Sweden Heaven & Hell or La Matriarca – and the CD features a whopping 31 tracks in all – all pretty darn groovy. CD

✨✧ VariousChicas – Spanish Female Singers 1962 to 1974 ... LP
Vampi Soul (Spain), 1960s/1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A sweet set of groovers from lovely Spanish ladies of the early 60s to mid 70s – ye-ye, rock, beat, garage, R&B, soul, Latin inspired sounds – and numbers that combine many of the above! Chicas features groovy numbers by Mararita Sierra, Sonia, Los Que Vivimos, Vainica Doble, Fresia Soto, Laura Casale, Gelu. Las Chic Lia Uya and more – tunes released in Spain by Warner, Capitol, RCA, Ariola, Belter and other labels.

✨✧ VariousCriminale Vol 3 – Colpo Gobbo (with bonus CD) ... LP
Flipper/Penny (Italy), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A funky variety of rare Italian Sound Library tunes from the Flipper Music vaults – running the gamut of the seedy soundtrack styles of the time – from pulpy psych, to rumbling funky percussion, to groovy mod organ jazz and well beyond! It's great stuff, clearly indicative of the seedy cinema sounds of 70s, but the music stands strongly as a groovy listening experience of its own – with some great material by renowned soundtrack maestros and less familiar names, too. 16 track in all: "Tangenziale Sud" by Gerardo Iacoucci & Mario Vinciguerra, "Rotatory Motion" by Franco Tamponi, "North Wind" by Alessandro Alessandroni, "Quadrante" by Stelio Subelli, "Carosello" by Leopoldo Perez-Bonsignore, "Chitarre Hippies" by Giovanni Ferroni, "Capricorno" by Amedeo Tommasi, "Piper Blues" by BrunoBattisti D'Amario and more.

✨✧ VariousMystic Males – Tripped Out Troubadours From 1965 to 1970 ... CD
Pet Records, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great set of Sunshine Pop and folk rock tunes from the late 60s – put together by the same folks who brought us the excellent Soft Sounds For Gentle People collections! As you'd guess by the title, the focus here is on all male singers – chosen from a host of obscure singles of the time, and going for a sound that's dreamy and trippy! The artists here are a really unique breed – somewhere between the lighter pop of the mid 60s and the headier work of the singer-songwriter generation – a key link between those better-known worlds, and represented here strongly by 23 really unique tunes. All tracks are annotated in the booklet, and titles include "Soul Sunrise" by JP Rags, "Suzanne" by Paul Parrish, "You Should Be From Monterey" by Chip Taylor, "Groovy & Linda" by Tom Parrott, "Autumn Afternoon" by Teddy Neeley, "Birdses" by Dino Valente, "Paisley Dreams" by Tommy Roe, "Flower Girl" by Kenny O'Dell, "Sad Thought This Is" by Sunshine, "Daisy" by Vince Donofrio, "Windy Wednesday" by Gordon Alexander, and "Girl With The Cameo Ring" by Bob Ray.

✨✧ VariousSounds From The Verve Hi Fi – Compiled By Thievery Corporation ... LP
Verve, 1960s/1970s. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An extremely groovy batch of tunes – compiled from the catalog of Verve (and related labels), selected to perfection by Thievery Corporation! These guys have a great reputation for crafting new grooves with a classic sound – and they've no doubt arrived at that talent after a long study of older tracks. Thus, it's no surprise that they've been turned loose on the Verve catalog to pick out some of their favorites – tunes that the stodgy ol' reissue producers would have passed up, were it not for them! Titles include "Escapade" by Wynton Kelly, "The Fakir" by Cal Tjader, "Something Else Again" by Richie Havens, "Chove Chuva" by Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66, "Lisa" by Willie Bobo, "For Mods Only" by Chico Hamilton, "Batucada" by Walter Wanderley, "Light My Fire" by Astrud Gilberto, "Samba Triste" by Jackie & Roy, and "Do It The Hard Way" by The Jazz Renegades.

✨✧ VariousSuper Animated Breaks & SFX – Mixed By Muro ... CD
Sony (Japan), 1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the coolest records we've ever heard from DJ Muro – and that's saying a hell of a lot, given how much we love his other projects! This totally wonderful set has Muro mixing it up with snippets of songs from Japanese animated work of the 60s, 70s, and 80s – very cool, very groovy cuts that bring together funky rhythms, jazzy solos, weird electronics, and plenty more – all then woven by Muro into this stunning mix of sounds that includes bits from 37 different songs! All the titles and information are in Japanese – but the feel of the set is like some of the best funk soundtrack work you love from the 70s – from American blacksploitation to the best in European cop and crime. And with Muro on the decks, the mix is perfect – done with the same sort of genius as his Fender Rhodes mixes from a few years back! CD

✨✧ VariousVenezuela 70 – Cosmic Visions Of A Latin American Earth – Venezuelan Experimental Rock In The 1970s (with bonus download) ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A completely amazing collection of sounds from the 70s scene in Venezuela – a really un-tapped legacy of fantastically creative music – most of it pretty darn groovy, too! Despite the "rock" in the title, the music here is more in a mix of funky jazz and other creative instrumental styles – a bit of Latin in some of the rhythms, some spiritual currents at other points, and a really rich blend of electric and acoustic instrumentation, with some other offbeat touches too! The music is almost more on the farther side of the spectrum from creative Latin combos in New York or LA at the time – not salsa, but with some salsa currents – not Chicano rock, but with some of those elements too – and maybe some of the better touches of the most experimental groups in Havana, the few who were reaching for a new style at the time. Venezuela was riding high on oil money at the time of these recordings – and there's definitely a sense of creativity for its own sake going on here – especially in some of the more electric moments, which reflect elements we really never would have expected. As always with Soul Jazz, the package is as great as the music – a mini-history lesson in itself – and titles include "Irene" by Aldemaro Romero Y Su Onda Nueva, "Dame De Comer" by Miguel Angel Fuster, "Amor En Llamas" by Pablo Schneider, "Aragueney" by Vytas Brenner, "Joropo No 1" by Grupo CIM, "Panico A Las 5am" by Angel Rada, "San Juan Tambo Y Fuera" by Un Dos Tres Y Fuera, "Ayudame A Encontrar Mi Camino" by Apocalipsis, and "Barcos De Pape" by Fernando Yvosky.

✨✧ Gary BurtonSomething's Coming/Groovy Sound Of Music/Time Machine ... CD
RCA/BGO (UK), 1964/1965/1966. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A trio of excellent Gary Burton albums from the 60s – collected together in a single set! Something's Coming is the launch of vibist Gary Burton as a leader – a force in jazz that would continue strongly for decades to come! At the time of the record, Burton had already been making waves as a session player on the Nashville scene – where RCA had some especially strong ears – but he's launched here in a mode that's quite far from those roots, and already filled with those modern, chromatic modes that would have Burton pushing the sound of the vibes forward strongly throughout his career – even on an early record like this! The group is very like-minded, and well-chosen – players who are spacious and modern, but never too much so – a quartet with Jim Hall on guitar, Chuck Israels on bass, and Larry Bunker on drums. Titles include "Melanie", "Careful", "Six Improvisatory Sketches", "Something's Coming", and "Little Girl Blue". Next up is a very cool take on the music of Sound Of Music – handled with some help from arranger Gary McFarland, in a way that really unlocks the modal potentials of the tunes! As you might expect from the revolutionary vibist Gary Burton, the approach here is quite different than the usual jazz album of Broadway material – and instead, both Burton and McFarland do a heck of a lot to open up the coolest potential of the songs – as they bring in other hip players who include Bob Brookmeyer on trombone, Phil Woods on alto, Joe Puma on guitar, and Steve Swallow on bass. Titles include "An Ordinary Couple", "Sixteen Going On Seventeen", "Do Re Mi", "Edelweiss", and a great take on "My Favorite Things". Time Machine is filled with beautiful sounds from Gary Burton – a seminal 60s session that really has the vibist coming into his own, and finding that new path towards musical expression that would flower even more strongly in the 70s! The album has Burton really strengthening up his sense of chrome – matching the boldness of other important 60s vibes players on the rise – like Karel Velebny or Bobby Hutcherson – but also working this really special magic in the way he lets each note resonate in the air – often with a much longer decay on the sound than the actual moment of its creation! Burton also plays a bit of piano on the record, overdubbed with his vibes – but in a way that's quite different than the vibes/piano combo of earlier acts – like the MJQ, or George Shearing Quintet – thanks to work from Steve Swallow on bass and Larry Bunker on percussion. Tracks include "Six Nix Quix Flix", "The Sunset Bell", "Deluge", "Chega De Saudade", and "Falling Grace". CD

✨✧ ChicagoChicago Transit Authority ... LP
Columbia, 1968. Used 2LP Gatefold ... 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".

Orion, Early 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Vibist/percussionist Bobby Christian leads a small combo through a tight run of tracks designed to provide a showcase for the choreography of jazz dance master Gus Giordano. The tracks have a very groovy sound, with a nice early 60's jazz feel that sounds like it was lifted from a crime soundtrack or a cop show. Percussion's nice and heavy, and tracks include "Yalcin Drums", "Staccato Drums", "Drums Galore", and "Man With the Golden Arm". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Betty DavisColumbia Years – 1968/1969 ... LP
Light In The Attic/Columbia, Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A soul and funk fan's dream come true – never-heard recordings by the legendary Betty Davis, done for Columbia Records a few years before her debut album! At the time, Betty was hanging with Miles Davis, and turning him onto the sounds of fuzzy funk – and Miles actually produced these recordings, and used instrumentation from key associates like Herbie Hancock on keyboards, Wayne Shorter on reeds, and John McLaughlin on guitar – plus the mighty Larry Young on keyboards! The whole thing's amazing – every bit as great as Betty's work for the Just Sunshine label, but maybe even grittier – and with this unbridled vibe that's totally wonderful – and we're stunned that this is the first we're hearing of this music – but are mighty happy it's finally seen the light of day. A few cuts also feature Davis with The Crusaders and Hugh Masekela – for a groovy Cali soul sort of vibe – and titles include "It's My Life", "Hangin Out", "Politician Man", "Down Home Girl", "I'm Ready Willing & Able", "Born On The Bayou", and "Live Love Learn".

✨✧ Francesco De MasiSartana Non Perdona ... LP
Beat (Italy), 1968. Used ... Out Of Stock
A great late 60s western score from Italian composer Francesco De Masi – hitting on all of favored sounds to accompany the best Italian made westerns of the era – rustic solo guitar, string-tightened tension, both lonely and densely orchestrated horns, and swaggery mood to spare! Excellent work that hits all the right notes – and it's got a groovy vocal opener, to boot! Titles include "Non Potro Domenticare", "Sogni Ed Ombre Nell'Incubo", "La Pista Nella Sabbia", "Ecce Homo", "Triste E Sospeso", "Un Giorno Ti Pentirai", "Passagio Ne Nistero" and many more.

✨✧ Tom ClayWhat The World Needs Now Is Love ... LP
MoWest, Early 70s. Very Good+ ... $4.99
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
(Cover has a very light stain on one corner.)
