✨✧ Giovanni FuscoIl Sesso Degli Angeli ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1968. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A totally groovy soundtrack from Giovanni Fusco from the late 60s – is work for Il Sesso Degli Angeli – with sounds that range from stripped down moddish pieces, to acoustic guitar grooves to Italian pop styles of the time – great stuff that's somehow never been issued before this release on Beat Records! Includes 17 sequences of the title theme with a pretty dynamic stylistic range, plus "Pink Purple Yellow And Red", "Verde Rosso Giallo E Blu" and more. CD

✨✧ Pierre Henry/Michel ColombierMesse Pour Le Temps Present ... LP
Philips (France), 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Fantastic! This classic bit of funky electronic French stuff has been showing up in bits and pieces on various compilations over the past few years (most notably the cut "Psyche Rock", which has some sample history to it), but this is the full release of this amazing collaboration between electronic music pioneer Pierre Henry and Michel Colombier – a soundtrack for a full length ballet of groovy electronic pieces that sounds as fresh today as it did back in the late 60s! It's great all the way through, and many tracks have the same feel as the famous "Psyche Rock" – funky, chunky, and bristling with electric energy. Other tracks have a very spare electronic sound – there's odd bubbling sounds, cool funky beats, and some very groovy melodies. LP, Vinyl record album
(Green inner label, with white text. Doesn't seem to be the most recent reissue, but we're not sure.)

✨✧ Hank Jones & Oliver NelsonHappenings ... LP
Impulse, 1966. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great little record – very different than anything else that Hank Jones ever recorded! The album features arrangements by Oliver Nelson – done in that mod 60s pop-jazz style that he was using on his best work – and about half the record features Jones playing electric harpsichord, one of those groovy instruments that we can never get enough of! Needless to say, the combination of these two factors pushes the record far away from Jones' usual straight jazz piano trio approach – as does some tight added horn work, and an overall feel that's right up there with the grooviest sounds that Impulse or Verve had to offer in the 60s. Titles include "Broadwalk Samba", "Happenings", "Funky But Blues", "Fugue Time", "Jazztime USA", "Mas Que Nada", and "Cul De Sac". LP, Vinyl record album
(Orange & black label mono pressing. Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ MonkeesHeadquarters ... LP
Colgems, 1967. Used ... 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".

✨✧ Riz OrtolaniBuona Sera, Mrs Campbell ... LP
United Artists, 1964. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Riz Ortolani did the soundtrack for this groovy film about 3 Americans (Peter Lawford, Telly Savalas, and Phil Silvers) returning to Italy after the war in a reunion with the woman who is the mother of a child that belongs to one of them. Sounds odd – and it is (believe us, we've seen the film!) Most of the score kind of has a romantic "vet returning to Italy after the war" feel – but there are some nice groovy moments – including the title theme "Buona Sera Mrs Campbell", a great vocal number by Jimmy Roselli! Other tracks include "Carla Is In Love", "Gia's Theme", "A Blessed Event", "Contessa Theme", "Fiesta In The Pizza", and "Braddock's Theme". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ 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

✨✧ Lou RawlsEssential Lou Rawls ... CD
Philadelphia International/Legacy, 1960s/1970s/1980s. Used 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A career-spanning set of work by Lou Rawls – a 2CD collection that focuses mostly on his work for Philadelphia International – but which also features early gems from Capitol, Bell, and MGM too! Lou's a mighty singer with some mighty talents – a voice that's unlike any other in soul music, and one that always sounds wonderful, no matter what the setting! And in this set, you'll get Lou singing jazz, blues, straight soul, disco, and more – always keeping things classy and cool throughout, and bringing a new level of sophistication to the music that few other singers can match. Package features 33 tracks in all, all newly remastered – with titles that include "Natural Man", "Time", "Groovy People", "Early Morning Love", "Spring Again", "All The Way", "Let's Fall In Love All Over Again", "Lady Love", "There Will Be Love", "One Life To Live", "You Are", "Be Anything", "She's Gone", "How Long How Long Blues", "Ain't That Loving You", and "This Song Will Last Forever".

✨✧ John Schroeder OrchestraSpace Age Soul ... CD
Sequel (UK), 1966. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Very groovy compilation of John Schroeder's cool Now Sound stuff from the late 60's. Recorded in the UK, with a sound that's surprisingly funky (in the Sound Gallery sort of way) this is an excellent batch of 21 tracks that features some very groovy sounds throughout, including originals like "Soul Trek", "Sweet Soul Talk", and "Soul Destroyer", plus nice covers like "Sunny", "Papa's Got a Brand New Bag", and "Black is Black". Another great European artist brought back from the dead, and someone whose older stuff you'll never find in the U.S. CD

✨✧ Simon & Garfunkel/Dave GrusinGraduate – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Columbia, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A tremendous little soundtrack – even if you've seen it a million times! Simon & Garfunkel always had a really dark quality to their music, but it never seemed to show as much on the pop charts as it did when used brilliantly by Mike Nichols in this important film. Their tunes emerge in slightly different versions, with a style that's a bit more adult and more off-center than we remember – all sitting next to some groovy instrumental tunes score by a young Dave Grusin, and shifting the mood nicely from track to track. Titles include "Whew", "Scarborough Fair/Canticle", "The Singleman Party Foxtrot", "April Come She Will", "On The Strip", "The Folks", "Mrs Robinson", and "Sounds Of Silence". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Valerie SimpsonExposed/Valerie Simpson (with bonus track) ... CD
Motown/Caroline (UK), 1971/1972. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two solo Valerie Simpson gems – back to back on a single CD! The Exposed album is a classic early bit of soul from the Ashford & Simpson team – even though the record is billed under the name of Valerie Simpson as a solo act! Valerie sang all the tracks on the album, but she and Nick produced the record together – in a way that really sets the groundwork for their bigger fame to come in the 70s – but much rootsier overall! Paul Riser handles the arrangements, with that great touch that he was bringing to some of the best Motown work of the early 60s – that sense of expanded styles, but never in a way that just rehashed some of the previous Detroit styles, and instead almost reached for some of the more sophisticated sounds coming from the east coast and Chicago. Dennis Coffey handles the guitar solos, Jack Ashford plays percussion, and Joshie Armstead joins Nick and Valerie on backup vocals. Titles include "Sinner Man", "Can't It Wait Until Tomorrow", "I Don't Need No Help", "World Without Sunshine", and "We Can Work It Out". On the self-titled Valerie Simpson, the singer really shines in the spotlight, on an early solo outing for Motown – not yet paired with Nick Ashford at a vocal level, but still getting plenty of help from her future musical partner on both production and songwriting! The approach here is sometimes a bit more personal than later Ashford & Simpson material – as Valerie really shines on some of the ballads and mellower cuts, then lets loose with a righteous style that points the way at some of the great grooves to come! Includes the groovy "Keep It Coming", plus "Genius 1 & 2", "I Believe I'm Gonna Take This Ride", "Silly, Wasn't I?", and "Drink The Wine". CD also features a bonus single version of "Can't It Wait Until Tomorrow". CD

✨✧ Peter Thomas Sound OrchestraChariots Of The Gods? (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Polydor/Universal (Germany), 1970. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An amazing little soundtrack from German maestro Peter Thomas – even weirder and more electric than some of his famous 60s recordings! Thomas scored the music for a spooky 70s film about the possibility of aliens on earth – and did so with a bit more tension than some of his other records – mixing in some dark tones, weird sounds, and other odd elements amidst some more familiar space age-styled themes. Instrumentation often mixes conventional orchestrations with electronics and offbeat percussion – the latter of which brings an earthy, organic undercurrent that you might not expect, and which really sets the record apart from anything else at the time. A few key cuts have the trademark groovy feel you'd expect from Thomas – including the classic "Stars & Rockets" – and other titles include "Reminiscences Of The Future", "Popular Myth & The Destruction Of Sodom", "The Red Sea", "Gods From Strange Planets", "Returning To The Stars", "Rocket Science", and "Easter Island". CD features a whopping 10 bonus tracks too – all previously unreleased! CD

✨✧ Caetano VelosoCaetano Veloso (1967) (180 gram LP with bonus CD) ... LP
Philips/Lilith (Italy), 1967. New Copy LP & CD (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the building blocks of the late 60s Tropicalia scene in Brazil – and a standout solo debut from the young Caetano Veloso! The album's got an approach that's as dynamic and trippy as its cover image might imply – the same amazing blend of sounds and styles you'd hear on contemporaneous records by Gal Costa or Os Mutantes – served up with similar wit, wisdom, and charm! Caetano's vocals are amazing throughout – filled with raspy power that goes beyond the barriers of language – and the production has loads of surprising elements tripping through the mix – some rootsy, some slightly orchestrated – but with a softer approach that resonates strongly with more psychedelic use of organ and guitar. The album's as powerful today as it was decades ago – an essential recording that holds up beautifully year after year! The kickoff track is "Tropicalia" (surprisingly enough!), and the album is a non-stop ride through gems like "Alegria, Alegria", "Onde Andaras", "Paisagem Util", "Ave Maria", and the groovy "Soy Loco Por Ti America", written by Gilberto Gil. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ 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.

Pet Records, Late 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Groovy tunes compiled by the folks who brought us the Soft Sounds For Gentle People compilations of lost late 60s pop psychedelia! He & She takes a novel approach and digs up the deepest nuggets by guy-girl combos – full of deep sinking hooks, bright counterpart harmonies, and trippy lyricism – most done in a buzzing Cali sunshine sound! It's full of great tunes by seldom heard groups – with a big sunshine sound! 22 tracks in all: "Hippy Dippy Funky Monkey Double Bubble Sitar Man" by The Hubbels, "Up Here" by Tony and Siegrid, "Time" by Kathy And Larry, "Circus" by Friend And Lover, "Taxicab" by Bunky And Jake, "Big Dsaddy Blues" by St George And Tana, "Sheridan Square" by Smokey And His Sister, "Rock N Roll Gypsies" by Gypsy Trip and more!

✨✧ VariousInfluences – Compiled And Mixed By DJ Marky (2CD set) ... CD
BBE (UK), 1960s/1970s/1980s. Used 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really wonderful compilation tunes that influenced Sao Paolo's DJ Marky – who maybe known more for drum & bass and broken beats, but here assembles an eclectic 2CD set of classic Brazilian tunes, 70s soul, disco, funk, and floor shaking club grooves – a straight up collection of classics from across the groovy spectrum! If there's a hurdle that we hope compilations of this sort will clear, it's to connect a diverse platter of sounds into a cohesive groove, and Marky couldn't have done a finer job – giving us a clear window into his personal influences and crafting an excellent batch of music for us! Bossa, house, soul, funk and modern grooves blended perfectly! Most of the tunes are from the late 60s through the early 80s, with a few neo classics from later years – with a very subtle, nicely done mix of the tunes on the first CD that keeps a most of the original tunes intact – with 16 tracks including "Aquarius" by Cal Tjader, "These Eyes" by The Guess Who, "Samba Blim" by Tamba 4, "Funkanova" by Wood, Brass & Steel", "Look Ahead" by Aquarian Dream, "Here's To You" by Skyy and much more. Disc 2 is unmixed, with many of the standouts from the first disc and several other tracks including "It's All In Mr Magic's Wand" by Whodini, "Balanca Pema" by Ronald Mesquita, "Sugar Rock" by One Way, "Thousand Finger Man" by Candido, "Adeus, Maria Fulo" by Os Mutantes, "Honeysuckle Breeze" by Tom Scott & The California Dreamers and more!

✨✧ VariousNicola Conte Presents Viagem 5 – Lost Bossa & Samba Jazz Classics From The Swinging Brazilian 60s ... CD
Far Out (UK), 1960s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sunny samba jazz, breezy bossa and all around wonderful rare grooves from Brazil – treasures from the heart of the 60s, compiled by Italian jazz guru Nicola Conte! Conte is not only one of the most affectionately groovy jazz players on the contemporary global landscape, he's also a selector with impeccable taste. Just on the basis of the Viagem series, the man would get our nomination for sainthood. This is the fifth time he's drawn from his deep well of rare 60s records from Brazil, and it keeps getting better and better. The tunes are rooted in a small combo jazzy vibe, most with easygoing MPB vocals. It's the love of jazz-centric, but still profoundly Brazilian sounds that makes the Viagem series stand out so strongly. Features tunes by Quarteto 004, Neyde Fraga, Samba 5, Edith Vega, Marilia Medalha, Grupo Arembepe, Papudinho and many more – and titles include "Vou Te Contar" by Quarteto 004, "Onda Quebrando" by Neyde Fraga, "Berimbau" by Samba 5, "Vim De Santana" by Theo, "Ye Meme" by Papudinho, "Quintessencia" by Zumba Five, "Matando Miseria A Pau" by Edith Vega, "Zana" by Marilia Medalha, "Iaia" by Grupo Arembepe, "Neurotico" by Pedrinho Mattar Trio and more.

Amazing! This is the legendary compilation that spawned a generation of loungecore fantatics during the mid-90s – and it's an incredible batch of rare tracks that still sounds great today. Most of the material was pulled from the EMI Studio 2 series – featuring groovy and funky Brit easy tracks recorded with stunning sound at the legendary Abbey Road studios. The tracks have a nice mix of mod scoring and funky rhythms – and titles include "Oh Calcutta" by Dave Pell Singers, "Blarney's Stoned" by Alan Hawkshaw, "Music To Drive By" by Joe Loss, "Penthouse Suite" by Syd Dale, "The Detectives" by Alan Tew, "Jet Stream" by John Gregory, "Life Of Leisure" by Keith Mansfield, "Funky Fever" by Alan Morehouse, and "I Feel The Earth Move" by John Keating. 24 tracks in all – and the kind of groundbreaking compilation that never gets old!

Truth & Soul, 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sweet steel band sounds from Bacao Rhythm & Steel – a contemporary combo, but one who recall the best 70s years of the steel funk scene! "Bacao Suave" begins with a heavy bassline leading the drums – then rolls into a sweet steel passage that's as groovy as it is melodic – then topped by some nice horns too! "Round & Round" is harder and funkier – with a damn wicked drum break that sets the tune up beautifully right from the start! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Ruud BosNaked Plus – Original Soundtracks 1967 to 1973 ... CD
678 Records (Netherlands), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... 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. The 2CD set sounds as vivid as it looks – and features over 2 hours of music, from films that include Daniel, Naakt Over De Schuitting, De Inbreker, Because Of The Cats, De Baby In De Boom, Een Vreemde Vogel, and Dat Verhaal Van Jou.

Jazz LiberatorzFruit Of The Past ... LP
Kif (France), 2000s. New Copy 2LP ... About November 1, 2014 (delayed)
A timeless mix of jazzy beatcraft by the Jazz Liberatorz – from breezy, laidback soul jazz soundscapes to more of a funky boom bap on the more MC oriented tracks – with stellar roster of vocal guests including Aloe Blacc, Fat Lip, Wildchild, Mos Def and others! The French beatmaking trio of Madhi, Dusty & DJ Damage do a really impressive job of paying tribute to the past without getting bogged down in revivalism, and also bring a lot more of the soul jazz atmosphere into the sound, with lots of groovy keys in the mix. Fruits Of The Past features great stuff and remixed material from earlier 12"s and brand new stuff – and it's fresh all the way! Titles include "Music In My Mind" (Parts 1 & 2) "What's Real", "Dark Keys" feat M'Selem, "What's Next On The Menu", "Force Be With You", "It Was Only A Song", "My Style Is Fly", "Capture Your Mind", "That's Right", "Breathing Pleasure", "My Style Is Fly" (Dela rmx), "What's Next" and more.
