VariousBeach Diggin' Vol 5 – Hand Picked By Mambo & Guts ... CD
Heavenly Sweetness (Netherlands), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy ... $13.99 19.99
The set's billed as "the perfect soundtrack to chill on the beach", but it's way more than that – and besides, when we always used to go to the beach, all the radios were always blaring classic rock or mainstream pop – and this collection is way way deeper than that! Guts have hand-picked all the tracks themselves – and the music is a sweet blend of jazzy and groovy styles from around the world – with an especially strong representation of the kind of post-colonial sounds that broke big on the European scene in the early 80s, served up here in tunes from Cameroon, Nigeria, Ivory Coast, Martinique, Malaysia, and other points global! Titles include a great soca remake of "Sweetest Taboo" by Rebles – plus "Tonight" by Sookie with Jeannine Otis, "LA Nights" by Yasuko Agawa, "Sweet Dole" by Andre Marie Tala, "Lite Low" by Tyna Onwudiwe, "And We'll Make Love" by Ricardo Marrero & The Group, "Femmes Pays Douces" by Raphael Toine, "Teardrops & Wine" by Salero, "War For Ground" by Momo Joseph, "Pasto" by Synchro Rhythmic Eclectic Language, "I Need You Now" by Robert Riggins, "Dreams Of Love" by Claude Genteuil, and "Si T'Es Mal Dans Ta Peau" by Koko Ateba.

VariousChebran – French Boogie 1980 to 1985 ... CD
Born Bad (France), Early 80s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
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.

VariousCine Jazz – The European Film Music Collection ... CD
Rambling (Japan), Late 50s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $22.99
Great jazzy moments from the best years of European cinema – a collection that starts out with the French New Wave, then moves into a range of great sounds from the Italian and French scene of the 60s and early 70s! Most of the music here isn't straight jazz – and instead, the cuts mix some strong instrumental solos with groovy, swinging, and upbeat arrangements – that fantastic use of jazz in film scores that the European scene of the 60s really took up and ran with – into places that were often much cooler, much more interesting than American soundtracks of the time! The collection's filled with great little gems that really work well in each others' company – and titles include "Those Lazy Days" by Armando Trovajoli, "Number One Superman" by Piero Piccioni, "Jazz Interludio" by Giorgio Gaslini, "La Preda" by Vince Tempera & Franco Bixio, "Astaroth" by Stelvio Cipriani, "Eva" by Michel Legrand, "Una Gita Mancata" by Ennio Morricone, and "Fiacre" by Georges Delerue.

VariousFlying Start – KPM 1000 Series Compilation 1968 to 1978 ... CD
KPM/Vocalion (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $16.99
A very cool collection from the KPM Sound Library – and a set that shows that the label didn't just put out crime and cop-styled funk! Instead, these tracks represent a nicely sophisticated array of sounds – tracks that offer up a bit of jazz, a touch of electronics, and some of the deeper themes you'd expect from some of the bigger names in 70s soundtrack composition – all mixed with groovy elements that keeps the whole thing as lively as the other sound library collections from Vocalion! There's a nicely light vibe to some cuts – billed here with themes that include "miniature moods", "industry/awards", "metropolis", and "dramatic backgrounds" – and the package features a whopping 28 tracks in all – including "Rat Race" by Nick Ingman, "World Series" by Keith Mansfield, "Guide Path" by Neil Richardson, "Fight For Survival" by Johnny Pearson, "Love Poem" by Keith Mansfield, "Computology" by John Cameron, "Flying Start" by David Lindup, "Sublimation" by Stan Tracey, "Sunny Start" by James Clarke, "Automation" by Nick Ingman, "Mood Macabre" by Stan Tracey, and "Tension" by John Dankworth.

VariousGet Easy Vol 4 – The German Pops Collection ... LP
Motor (Germany), Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $14.99
After the French Pops collection, the great folks at Motor have come up with a matching German Pop collection, with an equally stellar assortment of lost Now Sound sounds, wrapped up in a totally cool package that has to be seen to be believed. The focus here is more on instrumental tracks than on the French volume, and there's a lot of cool funky easy tracks by folks like Peter Thomas, Maurice Popp, Horst Jankowski, Nelson Riddle, Charlie Antolini, Gustav Brom, and other great bandleaders whose work was rarely (if ever) released in the the states. Another amazing batch of groovy groovy tracks, and so cool we can't even begin to describe it. Plus, it's got a nice low Dusty Groove price! Take that, Tower! LP, Vinyl record album

VariousGet Ready To Fly – Pop-Psych From The Norman Petty Vaults ... CD
Big Beat (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
Fuzzy psychedelic pop tunes from the late 60s – engineered by Norman Petty at his New Mexico studios towards the end of the decade – a startling change of pace from his famous work with Buddy Holly a decade earlier! Hardly any rockabilly or hillbilly rock to be found here – Get Ready To Fly is made up of tracks that link the kaleidoscopic sounds of the nascent psych genre, the hard driving buzz of garage rock, and the catchy hooks of the more chart ready rock of the time! Alas, there are no hits here, but it's full of gritty gems. We can think of some fairly high profile modern scenesters in Chicago alone that don't have even a thimbleful of the charm to be found on this compilation. 26 tracks in all: "Groovy Motions" by Fireballs, "No Silver Bird" by the Hooterville Trolley, "Ain't That Love" by the Cords, "Door Knob" by Intricate Blend, "I Know" by the Dard, "Mattie Jo's" by Mike Burnett, "Not Fade Away" by Group Axis (that Bo Diddley-bitten beat sounds great in any context), "Think About It" by the Frantics, "Mystic Magic Movements" by the Shi Guys, "Acid" by Stu Mitchell with the Wes Dakus Rebels, and more.

VariousGirls Want The Boys – Sweden's Beat Girls 1964 to 1970 ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $13.99
Totally groovy sounds from the Swedish scene of the 60s – a flurry of female pop tunes that we love every bit as our favorite French femme work from the time! Like French pop, the tunes here are lively and upbeat – often with a slight current of funk or soul in the rhythms, and with instrumentation that mixes fuller orchestrations with groovier elements at the core – creating a juxtaposition of large sound and personal presence that makes the music plenty darn great throughout! There have been lots of other European scenes tapped like this over the years – but this may well be the first Swedish collection we've ever heard – and, thanks to the folks at Ace Records, it gets beautiful presentation with top-shelf sound, and detailed notes on the music. Titles include "The Girls Want The Boys" by Eleanor Bodel, "Karlek Finns Det Overallt" by Mak Les Souers, "Last Train To Liverpool" by Plommons, "Good Kind Of Hurt" by Lena Junoff, "Don't" by Doris, "Benny Law" by Plums, "Lite For Liten" by Lill Babs, "Vadret" by Mona Wessman, and "You Really Have Started Something" by Britt Bergstrom. 24 tracks in all!

VariousItalian Girls Like Ear-Catching Melodies ... CD
Dagored (Italy), Early 70s. Used ... $8.99
Despite the cloying title of this one, the set's a very sweet collection of Italian 70's themes with a groovy sexy sound to them. There's perhaps more of a camp feel than usual (if you can believe that!), with sounds that have a bit of a Barbarella-ish feel, or sort of a Euro b-grade erotic quality. There's some nice mellow moments with spare electric keyboards, in sort of a Morricone style, and others with good rolling basslines. Titles include "Louise" and "Theme For A Murderer" by Armando Trovajoli, "La Bella Signora" and "One More Time" by Piero Piccioni, "La Storia Comincia" by Guido De Angelis, "Diamanti Swing" by Francesco De Masi, "What Is This Love" by Franco De Gemini, "Susan & Jane" by Riz Ortolani, and "Il Sorriso Della Ieana M6" by Roberto Pregadio. Nicely packaged in a sexy cover, and with a nice pace of grooves! CD

VariousNew Jazz Festival – Balver Hohle 1974 & 1975 (11CD box set) ... CD
Be! (Germany), Mid 70s. New Copy 11CD ... $99.99 199.99
Incredible jazz from the German scene of the 70s – two years' of recordings from this important festival – one that presents all the "new jazz" promised in its name, but in a range that moves effortlessly between free jazz, modal moments, funky fusion, and even some groovy big band work too! Performers are a range from all over the European scene – and are represented here in a significant selection of material from each act – very well-recorded, and presented in this beautiful box set, along with a booklet of notes and photos as well. The scope of sounds is fantastic – and long performances include an set of improvisations from the trio of Peter Brotzmann, Fred Van Hove, and Han Bennink; two long electric tracks from Jasper Van't Hof's Pork Pie group, with Charlie Mariano on a range of reeds and Philip Catherine on guitar; four long improvisations from the SOS group of John Surman, Mike Osborne, and Alan Skidmore – plying in a great mix of reeds and electronics; there's also two long improvisations between pianist Misha Mengelberg and drummer Han Bennink; Gary Burton's quintet with Pat Metheny and Mick Goodrick on guitars perform three improvisations for over 75 minutes of music; the Gustav Brom Big Band step out on some very groovy tracks; saxophonist Eero Koivistonen blows with his quartet that includes Olli Avhenlahti on electric piano; reedman Jiri Stivin and guitarist Rudolph Dasek play a number of improvisations; bassist Barre Phillips and flautist Kryzstof Zgraja perform two long improvisations; the Polish Jazz Summit features Tomasz Stanko on trumpet, Zbigniew Namyslowski on alto, Zbigniew Siefert on violin, and Adam Makowicz on Fender Rhodes; and trumpeter Franz Kogelmann and soprano saxophonist Steve Lacy head a quintet with a bit of electronics! There's a few more surprises, too – and the whole thing is a fantastic presentation of these lost sounds. CD

✨✧ VariousSpaced Out – The Story Of Mushroom Records ... CD
Grapefruit (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99
A totally groovy look at London's Mushroom Records – a tiny imprint that flourished briefly in the early 70s – and gave home to a much wider array of sounds and styles than you might expect! There's a great post-60s approach going on here – a bit similar to the many directions that American FM freeform radio was taking at the time – as bits of rock, jazz, Indian, folk, and other styles come together – all resonating together beautifully with each other, and really creating a mind-expanding sound in the process! The range of artists here is as wonderful as their many styles – and rather than come across like a label with a confusing approach, Mushroom seems to have a really visionary way of putting all these many moments together. The set also features some related work from the Maximum Sound Productions project of label owner Vic Keary – for a whopping 46 tracks in all. Titles include "Cham Cham Cham Cham" by Nitai Dasgupta, "Or Alternatively Nine" by Lol Coxhill, "Where's Your Master Gone" by Simon Finn, "Evil Ways" by Les Flambeaux, "Hangin On An Eyelid" by Second Hand, "Puckaree" by Urban Clearway, "Land Of A Thousand Dreams" by Chillum, "The Phoenix" by Magic Carpet, "The Ould Triangle" by Liverpool Fishermen, "Folk Piece In Kharwa" by Pandit Kanwar Sain Trikha, "Rainbow Chasing" by Andromeda, "Knock On Wood" by Oliver Bone, "My Ways Are Set" by John Williams, "Taboo Man" by Alexis Korner's Blues Incorporated, "Never Gonna Love Again" by New Faces, "Summer Leaves Me With A Sigh" by Tuesday's Children, and "I Am Nearly There" by Denis Couldry & The Next Collection.

VariousSurinam – Boogie & Disco Funk From The Surinamese Dance Floors 1976 to 1983 ... LP
Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), Late 70s/Early 80s. Very Good+ 2LP ... $19.99
Really rare grooves from an incredibly obscure scene – and that's saying a lot, given how many global sounds have been circulating in recent years! The cuts here represent a unique outpouring of funky club styles from the nation of Surinam – tracks recorded by a handful of groups in the wake of their mid-70s independence – and as filled with as much joy and positive energy as you might imagine from such a political moment! The grooves are surprisingly great – upbeat funk, with lots of jazzy inflections – in a space that's somewhere between the sound of Fantasy Records in the mid 70s, and Capitol soul at the start of the 80s – tight, but never too slick – and as cool as it is classy. Lyrics are in English, and titles include "Sweet Dream" by Alwin Reingoud, "Groovy Weekend" and "Disco Party" by Erwin Bouterse & The Group Roetoe, "Try Try Try" and "You Are Gonna Miss Me" by Solat, "Funkin In Your Mind" and "Going Insane" by Sumy, "Here's To You" by Thunderstorm, and "Waiting For Your Love" by Usje Sukatma.

VariousVocal Superstars At King Jammy's (4CD set) ... CD
17 North Parade, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 4 CDs ... $22.99 25.98
A quaret records by reggae vocals heroes produced by King Jammy from the late 70s and early 80s – Dennis Brown's The Exit, Gregory Isaacs's Come Along, Sugar Minnott's Bitter Sweet and Horace Andy's Haul And Jack Up – in a killer box set! This was the period in which Jammy was utilizing modern production touches with more traditionally rooted singers and styles – in a mode that paved the way for digital dancehall hall and modern sounds to come! Dennis Brown's The Exit, alternately released as History, features Brown's rootsy style in the dancehall era, with tracks including "Too Late", "History", "Up-Full One", "The Exit", "Dance All Night" and more. Come Along by Gregory Isaacs is a great later effort from the Cool Ruler, teaming him up with King Jammy on "Take A Look","You're Like An Angel", "Do Your Own Thing", "Kinky Lady", 'Sip Of Wine", "Curfew", "First Class Lover", "Give Love A Try", "Bits & Pieces" and "No Good Girl".

Fremeaux & Associates (France), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 3CD ... $18.99
A very groovy set that looks at the roots of French pop during the early years of rock and roll – specifically the sounds from Paris that were copies of American styles, but which changed the language and style to fit the scene! The package features both "VO", or voix original, and "VF", or voix Francais versions of each tune – which means that first you get a French pop hit from the period, then the American song on which it was based – showing a really nice juxtaposition as French singers pick up the songs of artists who include Gene Vincent, The Coasters, Joe Jones, Bill Haley, Dion, Everly Brothers, and others. 3CD set features notes in French and English, and a total of 75 tracks that include "L'Homme A La Moto" by Edith Piaf, "T'Es Pas Tombe Sur La Tete" by Mac Kac, "Oh Les Filles" by Pingouins, "Belles Belles Bells" by Claude Francois, "Veille Bien Sur Mon Amour" by Richard Anthony, "Nous Quand On S'Embrasse" by Johnny Hallyday, "Oh Baby Tu Me Rends Fou" by Chats Sauvages, "J'Entends Siffler Le Train" by Hughes Aufray, "Jackie La Guitare" by Jacky Mouliere, "Le Lion Est Mort Ce Soir" by Henri Salvador, "Vingtieme Etage" by El Toro & Les Cyclones, "Oh Oh Cheri" by Francoise Hardy, and "Twist A Saint Tropez" by Guy Lafitte.

Nereide/Intervallo (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautiful little record, and one that's got way more heart and soul to offer than you might expect from the rather understated packaging – which hides an album that's full of sparkling 70s keyboard magic! The music here is by a mix of Italian soundtrack and jazz talents – the latter of whom bring some sounds that are especially groovy, served up on both acoustic piano and lots of sweet electric keyboards! The great Marco Di Marco contributes four numbers – including two takes on "Long Drink", "Prima Giochi", and the tune "Ivana" – a nice bossa nova track. Other titles include "Aria Aperta" by Franco Tonani, "Venus" and "Bassa Marea" by Alessandro Alessancroni, "Pescatori" by Kema, and "Protozoi" by Amedeo Tommasi. LP, Vinyl record album

BBC/Silva Screen, 1983. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Weird and wonderful sounds from one of the coolest spots in the universe – the legendary BBC Radiophonic Workshop, home to a mix of surprisingly groovy and experimental electronic music! This album was issued on the 25th anniversary of the sonic institution – and it features a strong mix of older analogue styles with some more 80s-oriented electronics – yet still with all the depth you'd expect from the Radiophonic Workshop during its classic years! These aren't tinny slasher keyboards, or electro pop programs – and instead, the music here is as thoughtful and compelling as the sounds created during the Delia Derbyshire generation – but are handled by artists who include Peter Howell, Paddy Kingsland, Dick Mills, Jonathan Gibbs, Elizabeth Parker, and Malcolm Clarke. Titles include "Mainstream", "Radiophonic Rock", "Computers In The Real World", "Rallyman", "Seascape", "Land & People", "Houdini's Magic Box", "Ghost In The Water", "Planet Earth", and "Catch The Wind".

✨✧ Betty DavisColumbia Years – 1968/1969 ... LP
Light In The Attic/Columbia, Late 60s. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily 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".

Inner City, 1978. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Groovy sounds from the team of David Friesen and John Stowell – mostly acoustic lines from the two string-based players, but with some other odd bits as well – and both soprano and tenor sax from Gary Campbell! The album's got a bit more bite than other albums by the pair – partially due to Campbell's saxes, but also due to a more sonic-sensitive sort of approach – one that almost echoes some ECM styles of the time, but in warmer, friendlier ways that we really like. Titles include "Tabla/Eternal Friend", "Wisdom's Star", "Frontal Dichotomy", "High Places", "Wings Of Light", "Through The Listening Glass", and "Secret Moments Of Silence". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Chico HamiltonEl Chico ... LP
Impulse, 1965. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Amazing, simply amazing – and light years ahead of the staid sounds that Chico Hamilton was cutting in the 50s! Hamilton's one of those players who has an amazing range to his music – almost all of it really incredible, as Chico always shifts things up over time – continually trying new things, and new modes of expression – even though, given his popularity, he could have just kept recording the same things year after year. This album is true testament to that propensity for growth in Hamilton's music – a wonderfully unbridled set that's filled with unusual rhythms, odd instrumentation, and even some of the first touches of psychedelic jazz to appear in the 60s! Players include Sadao Watanabe on alto and flute, Gabor Szabo on guitar, Jimmy Cheatham on trombone, and Willie Bobo and Victor Pantoja on percussion – all working together in a really wonderful range of modes from track to track – always groovy, but also pretty far-reaching and exploratory too! Titles include "El Moors", "Helena", "Strange", "Marcheta", "El Chico", and "Conquistadores". LP, Vinyl record album

CD reproduces the original album format – with 12 tracks that include "Pachuko Hop", "Papa Charlie", "Blue Sax", "Iron Pipe", "The Duck Walk", "The Rooster", "Tortas", and "Stormy". CD

Gerardo Iacoucci's music is a huge change from the kind more facile sound library material coming out of the UK – the sorts of short, catchy songs designed for easy use in commercials or TV – and instead, the work here is richly conceived and presented, with a new sort of surprise at each track on the record – and just the right sort of balance to appeal to fans of both groovy and more wild sound library material. Titles include "Violenza", "Il Cobra", "Produzione Industriale", "La Caverna", "Citta Del Capo", "Zombie", "From Tokyo To Las Vegas", and "Assenza Di Gravita". LP, Vinyl record album

A groovy set from 70s Spain! This 1971 groover was recorded by keyboardist Alfonso Santisteban and his La Nueva Banda De Santisteban – in a style that's very similar to some of the best Italian soundtrack work of the time, and bits of bossa! Alfonso plays both electric and acoustic piano – and the album grooves along with funky bass, tight drums, and a swirl of voices and instruments that jangle around the beats with a mad, free feel. The whole thing's a mod easy party from the word "go" – and has the freshness that on par with the best groovy soundscapes of the era! Titles include "Sabor A Fresa", "Brincadeira", "Zorongo", "Persecucion", "Limon Y Sal", "Nuestro Ayer", "Tierra Mojada", "Soledad" and "The Suitcase". CD

MastersoundsDate With The Mastersounds ... LP
Fantasy, 1960. Very Good+ ... $5.99
A great album by the bscure 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. Titles include "Fink Fank Funk", "For Now", "Try It", and "Whisper Not". LP, Vinyl record album
(OJC pressing on red vinyl. Cover has a name in marker.)
