✨✧ 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

✨✧ Piero UmilianiGli Italiani E L'Industria (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1967. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Hardly the sort of industrial sounds you might not expect – not the noisy European mode of the 80s, nor even the sort of labor-conscious styles of the Folkways generation – and instead, a sweet batch of groovy, lively instrumentals with a strong 60s vibe – of the sort that makes us think that Italian factories must have been a pretty pleasant place to work at the time! The great Piero Umilian penned all the tunes – in the best manner of his film scores from the same time – and the music is conducted by Romolo Marcellini, for a television program that used all of the tunes – in a beautiful blend of organ lines, guitar, vibes, and other jazzy instrumentation. Titles include "Natascia", "Tempo Di Week-End", "Playtime", "Automatismo", "Microracing", "Negozi Alla Moda", "Coltura Virus", "Cibernetica", and "Rally Notturno". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Celia VilelaE Viva A Juventude ... CD
RGE/Discobertas (Brazil), 1961. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A very cool Brazilian record from the start of the 60s – and one that almost feels more like Italian pop of the time than most of the music we know from Brazil! The tunes start out with rockish modes, but often bring a lot of Latin elements into the rhythms – creating these groovy sounds underneath the lead vocals of Celia Vilela – a powerful singer with just the sort of punch you might expect from her image on the cover! Many of these tunes would be right at home blasting out of a jukebox in early 60s Rome – and titles include "Sempre Houve Amor", "Es Meu Amor", "Conversa Ao Telefone", "Valentino Valentino", "Trem Do Amor", "Streap Tease Rock", and "Passo A Passo".

✨✧ Will Sessions featuring Amp FiddlerKindred Live ... CD
Sessions Sounds, 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic step forward for Detroit's hip Will Sessions combo – a set that's every bit as funky as their previous work, but also has a soaring fusion vibe as well! Amp Fiddler's with the group on keyboards – and with his help, they hit sort of a Bitches Brew vibe here – a style that's especially augmented by the great trumpet lines of Sam Beaubein, who's often right out on front, blowing over the heavy drums – and getting plenty of sharp help on guitar, tenor, bass, and percussion! Bryan Arnold mans the might drum kit – and the songs are long, open, and very groovy – one original, plus remakes of tunes by Miles Davis, Jaco Pastorius, and Herbie Hancock – titles that include "Dance Girl/Chameleon", "Bitches Brew", "Sivad", "Black Satin/What I Say", "Kindred", and "River People".

✨✧ VariousEthiopiques Volume 26 – Mahmoud Ahmed & Imperial Bodyguard Band ... CD
Buda (France), Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An amazing and overlooked chapter of modern Ethiopian music – work recorded by a vaguely military ensemble – the Imperial Bodyguard Band! The group's got a sound that's great enough on its own – loads of offbeat rhythms, unusual horn passages, and otherworldly sounds – all very much in the best spirit of 70s Ethiopian music. But they've also got a "secret weapon", too – vocalist Mahmoud Ahmed, who's singing here on some of his earliest recordings! A military band seems a strange outlet for music this groovy – but that's a tension that's noted clearly in the notes, which get at the fascinating development of the combo. The collection is another feather in the cap of the excellent Ethiopiques series – and features rare work from singles we'd never have heard otherwise! Titles include "Ebo Lala", "Eneman Neberu", "Tchela Atbey", "Alem Alem", "Endet Lelefew", "Enqu Messay", "Kantchi Gar Kalhone", "Feqer Bezebezegen", and a great version of "Tezeta". CD

✨✧ VariousGirls Want The Boys – Sweden's Beat Girls 1964 to 1970 ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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!

✨✧ VariousMore Psychedelic Guitars ... LP
Custom, 1960s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A late 60s scene exploitation gem –lightly trippy, fuzzy instrumental guitars from unknown sources cobbled together to strike while the scene was hot! As you might expect, the sounds are more manicured, clean and professional to qualify as geniune psychedelia, but 40 + years later, that's the charm, just a cheeky and groovy batch of bright bursts of sweet psyche-lite bubblegum! Titles include "Another Trip", "Really Got It Bad", "Psychedelic A-Go-Go", "Lost In Space", "Sit In", and "The Letdown". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some surface wear, split top seam and spine, and a bit of pencil on front.)

✨✧ VariousSpaced Out – The Story Of Mushroom Records ... CD
Grapefruit (UK), Early 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
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.

✨✧ Lino CastiglioneClouds (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Flipper/Spettro (Italy), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Very cool sounds from Pasquale "Lino" Castiglione – an Italian sound library composer we've never heard before, but who really soars out of the gate with a range of groovy styles! Some tracks here have a hip 70s funky jazz approach – complete with sweet keyboards and tight drums – while others evoke the sorts of sounds you'd hear in a full length soundtrack – with a few cuts that hearken back to the late 60s spaghetti western genre, and a few more that hit that Italian horror mode – but from a time when things were never too atonal or avant. These shifting moods work together beautifully to make a single album – one with a warmly 70s vibe overall – on titles that include "Moderne Expressions", "Riding", "Clouds", "Loneliness", "Mood", "Sea Side", and "Friends". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Herbie Hancock5 Original Albums (Takin Off/My Point Of View/Inventions & Dimensions/Speak Like A Child/The Prisoner) (5CD set) ... CD
Blue Note (Germany), Mid 60s. New Copy 5CD ... Out Of Stock
The early genius of Herbie Hancock – perfectly summed up here in five classic albums for Blue Note – each presented in a tiny LP-styled sleeve! Takin Off has Herbie Hancock stepping into the limelight with an excellent batch of soul jazz tunes, including the first recording of his classic "Watermelon Man", the one track that probably put all his kids through school! Although that one went on to become a standard within a few short years in 60s jazz, it still sounds great here in the original – a very fresh take on the sound of soul jazz in the 60s – offered up here in a 7 minute version that has more sharp soloing than most other takes on the tune! The group here is great too – with Dexter Gordon on tenor, Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Butch Warren on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums – and the tracks are all also originals by a young Herbie – including "Watermelon Man", "The Maze", "Driftin", "Three Bags Full", "Alone & I", and "Empty Pockets". My Point Of View is a great mix of soul jazz and modernism! The record include a nice groovy "hit", Herbie's "Blind Man, Blind Man" – an obvious follow-up to "Watermelon Man", but still a standout track with a lot of imagination, and a fierce soul jazz hook that just won't quit! The rest of the record, while still groovy, also shows much more signs of Herbie's far-reaching conception – especially shared with players like Tony Williams, Grachan Moncur, Chuck Israels, and Grant Green – all of whom work with Herbie, Donald Byrd, and Hank Mobley – in a larger than usual group that makes for a really great sound! Titles include "A Tribute To Someone", "King Cobra", and "The Pleasure Is Mine". Inventions & Dimensions is really unique little record from Herbie Hancock – one that's almost completely improvised over Latin percussion! The setup is quite spare – and quite different than Herbie's other Blue Note work – and the group features improvised backgrounds by bassist Paul Chambers and 2 Latin percussionists, Willie Bobo and Osvaldo "Chihuahau" Martinez. Herbie only wrote simple sketches for the songs on the album, and most of the work on the tracks was done live, spontaneously, in the studio – creating a very free groove that never goes too far out, but which is far more adventurous than usual. All tracks are long, and titles include "Succotash", "Triangle", and "Mimosa". Speak Like A Child is an oft-overlooked session that has Herbie mixing a nice dose of lyricism into his usual soul jazz approach from the 60s! The sound's a bit farther-reaching than on some of Herbie's smaller group sessions – and the record features a sextet that includes Ron Carter, Mickey Roker, Jerry Dodgion, Thad Jones, and Peter Phillips – all soaring with the warmth and introspection that was showing up in some of the best Blue Notes from the time. The harder-hitting soul jazz riffs and hooks are nicely replaced by more thoughtful lines that get a bit deeper, soufully – and nearly all tracks on the set are originals by Hancock! The album's filled with great moments – and tracks include "The Sorcerer", "Riot", and "Goodbye To Childhood". Last up is The Prisoner – a nice late Blue Note change from Herbie Hancock – a very different album than his previous sets for the label – in that it features a slightly larger group, and a sound that really points the way towards his directions in the 70s! There's a slightly ambitious feel to some of these cuts – not in a way that's over-arranged, but just a new sort of thinking for Herbie's kind of groove – a mode that's partially informed by the seriousness of 60s jazz soundtracks, but which also has the beginnings of some more righteous modes of expression too. Players are all great – and include Joe Henderson on tenor and flute, Johnny Coles on flugelhorn, Garnett Brown on trombone, Hubert Laws on flute, Jerome Richardson on bass clarinet, Buster Williams on bass, and Tootie Heath on drums. Herbie plays both acoustic and electric piano – using the latter here in one of his first recordings on the instrument – and titles include "Firewater", "I Have A Dream", "The Prisoner", and "He Who Lives In Fear".

✨✧ Pierre Henry/Michel ColombierMesse Pour Le Temps Present ... CD
Philips (France), 1967. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A legendary album – one that came from the more serious side of the French electronic scene of the 60s – but which has gone on to great fame in a number of different scenes – thanks to its mad blend of funk and electronics! There's grooves here you'll recognize from famous hip hop or club samples, and styles that clearly pave the way for later groups like Stereolab – but back in the 60s, this is where it all began – when electronic pioneer Pierre Henry decided to work with groovy French arranger Michel Colombier – on a batch of tracks for a ballet that were years ahead of their time! The styles here are wonderful – and in addition to the funkier cuts, there's also some spare electronic moments that link back towards some of Henry's more academic catalog – which makes for a great album as the funk bursts out of the spookier sounds. The set includes the full Messe Pour Le Temps Present – done with Colombier – plus parts of Le Voyage, Variations Pour Une Porte Et Un Soupir, and La Reine Verte. Titles include the famous "Psyche Rock", plus "Teen Tonic", "Jericho Jerk", "Too Fortiche", "Les Divinites Paisibles", "Mort", "Danse Du Jeune Homme", and "Rock Electronique". CD

Gemelli (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy (pic cover)... Out Of Stock
A limited single with two tracks by I Gres – 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. 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Piero PiccioniColpo Rovente (180 gram pressing) ... LP
GDM/Beatball (Korea), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... 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", "Colpo Rovente", "Easy Dreamer", "Chinatown Drugs", and "LSD".

✨✧ VariousAnthologie Twist Francais 1961 to 1962 (3CD set) ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1961/1962. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
Groovy sounds from 60s France, plus a few Canadian tracks too – all numbers that take off in the globally-popular twist style of the time, but which feature French language lyrics in the lead! The "twist" here is taken in a nicely wide way – more romping rockers that draw plenty of inspiration from the American scene at the start of the 60s – upbeat, and aimed at the dancefloor, but also served up with modes that point the way towards modder French pop to come! A number of cuts are French remakes of American tunes, but others are originals – and as the set moves on, there's also a number of instrumental groovers too. As always with this label, the package is huge – 75 titles in all, plus notes in English too – for titles that include "Danse Le Twist Avec Moi" by Johnny Hallyday, "Twist A Saint Tropez" by Chats Sauvages, "Ali Baba Twist" by Koko, "Twist Twist Senora" by Burt Blanca, "En Dansant Le Twist" by Gillian Hills, "La Lecon De Twist" by Nancy Holloway, "Capital Twist" by Tremolos, "Twist Contre Twist" by Jean Roger & Denise Filiatrault, Twister" by Guy Roger, "Ya Ya Twist" by Petula Clark, "Twisting Baby" by Jacky Seven", and lots lots more!

✨✧ VariousBeach Diggin' Vol 5 – Hand Picked By Mambo & Guts ... CD
Heavenly Sweetness (Netherlands), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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.

✨✧ MastersoundsMastersounds (Swinging With The Mastersounds/Date With The Mastersounds) ... CD
Fantasy, 1960. Used ... Temporarily 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".
