✨✧ VariousBeretta 70 – Roaring Themes From Thrilling Italian Police Films 1971-80 ... CD
Crippled Dick (Germany), Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Another excellent exploration into the lost world of European film music from the folks at Crippled Dick! Like their other sets, this one features a huge amount of funky and groovy music that you'll never find on the original vinyl – and unlike the other ones, this one's got a harder, heavier edge, due in great part to the "cop" origins of the music. There's lots of heavy grooves, fuzzy guitar, and cool wah wah "cop show theme" sort of sounds. The set's got music by Goblin, Adriano Fabi, Franco Micalizzi, Luis Bacalov, and others – and the whole thing's got a super-sexy look, with great documentation on both the material and the original films! There's lots of reproductions of posters from the films, and a huge amount of notes in English with a very high level of writing. Crippled Dick's always put a lot of hard work into their compilations, and this one is no exception! CD

✨✧ VariousChicas Vol 2 – Spanish Female Singers 1963 to 1978 ... LP
Vampi Soul (Spain), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A second wonderful look at the world of female pop in Spain – a nation that's not gotten nearly the same sort of global exposure over the years! We've stocked plenty of groovy French pop, in many formats – and even Italian gal pop has gotten lots of play recently – but the territory here is virtually unknown, which makes the collection such a treasure all the way through! The depth of sounds is great – from familiar 60s yeh-yeh modes, to more expressive styles too – often with a bit more drama in the vocals than female work from other European scenes, but still plenty of straightforward energy going into the groove. The notes are great – an education in themselves – and the set also includes loads of great images of original singles, too. Titles include "Snob Ye Ye" by Marina, "Tu No Eres Ye Ye" by Blanca Aurora, "Mas Me Enamoro De Ti" by La Nueva Generacion, "Soul Man" by Los Quandos, "Mirza" by Los Jollys, "La Bruja" by La Llave, "Contigo" by Paloma San Basilio, "Tic A Tic A Toc Toc" by Las Chic, "Ya No Te Guardo Rencor" by Moreno Y Clara, "40 Degrees A La Sombra" by Claudine Coppin, "Tu Eres Mi Idolo" by Donna Hightower, and "4321 Morte" by Edda Dell'Orso with Anton Garcia Abril.

✨✧ VariousFor Connoisseurs Only Vol 3 – Kent/Modern Soul Collectables ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
No need to be a connoisseur to enjoy this set – because the tunes here are all plenty darn groovy – rare soul numbers with an instant appeal to our ears, thanks to their freshness and the quality of the work! The package features rare singles and a bunch of previously unissued tracks from the vaults of the Kent/Modern labels – most recorded at the end of the 60s, in a range of soulful styles! Some numbers have a sweeter feel, but many echo the headier sounds of the times – bringing in some funkier or psychedelic soul influences, even when the themes might be a bit more conventional, or the grooves a bit more mellow. As always with Kent, the package features loads of notes on the music – enough to help even a novice become a connoisseur after a few listenings – and the CD features 24 titles that include "Cut Me Loose" by Gene Taylor, "Beverly" by Billy Watkins, "If I'd Lose You" by Jackie Day, "That Righteous Feeling" by Marvin Phillips & The Spinners, "My Name Is Misery" by Al King, "I've Gotta Get You Back" by Mary Love, "I'm Guilty" by Vernon Garrett, "Can't Count The Days" by Jeb Stuart, "Baby Baby Baby" by Leon Peterson, "The Ta Ta Song" by Little Henry & The Shamrocks, and "It's OK" by Esther Williams.

EMI/Scamp, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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!

✨✧ Roy AyersFeeling Good ... CD
Polydor/Soul Brother (UK), 1982. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Stellar sounds from the great Roy Ayers – an early 80s album for Polydor, but a set that's still got the wonderfully tight, wonderfully groovy feel of his late 70s albums for the label! Roy's really perfected his sense of balance by this time – and does a great job of balancing groovers with sweet mellow steppers – the kind of cool, compressed, jazzy numbers that we love so much! Ayers heads for the clubs one minute, the bedroom the next – and draws us in beautifully whichever direction he takes – thanks to some sublime vibes and electric piano – and great lead vocals from Roy, and other singers who include Terri Wells, Vivian Prince, John King, and Ricky Williams. Titles include "Ooh", "Let's Stay Together", "Feeling Good""Knock Knock", "Turn Me Loose", "Stairway To The Stars", and "Our Time Is Coming". CD

✨✧ Keith DrosteBig Band Moog ... LP
Realistic, Early 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A pretty groovy record – put out by Radio Shack in order to promote their moog products during the 70s! The "Big Band" in the title is a bit misleading – as the group on the set's not really big band, but just a tight studio ensemble, featuring horns by The Brass Pad, guitar by Bobby Roberts, bass by Johnny Frigo, and keyboards by Keith Droste – who's got a very nice touch on the moog! A few tunes on the set are originals, and others are 60s tunes, done groovily – and the whole set has a swinging feel that puts it right up there with the best commercially released moog groove albums of the time. Titles include "Moog In My Soul", "Star Spangled Soul", "Pressure Cooker", "T'Aint Necessarily Soul", "Sounds Like Love", and "Walk On By". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Hareton & MetaKM 110 EP ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), Late 60s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... Out Of Stock
An incredibly rare EP from Brazil – one that's filled with trippy sounds that definitely match the image on the cover! The music is somewhere in the samba soul territory of the late 60s, but also has some bigger backings – of the sort you'd hear on EMI/Odeon work of the period – like work by Som Tres or Wilson Simonal – and the vocal approach on the work is definitely somewhere in the realm of Simonal, with a nice raspy charm. The set features four tracks – one mellow, the others nice and groovy – and titles include "Tangara", "Hippie 12", "Confissao", and "KM 110". 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Harry J All StarsLiquidator ... CD
Trojan (UK), 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An excellent set of rocksteady instrumentals by writer/producer Harry J and his Allstars – very much in a similar vein to classic Jackie Mittoo material, with a cool bubbling sound that's totally great! Recorded in 1969, steeped strongly in some of the finest reggae instrumental sounds of the period – with players that include core members of the Hippy Boys, and eventual Upsetters and Wailers. They perform a totally great version of "Je T'Aime . . . Moi Non Plus" – plus other groovy tracks like "Jack The Ripper", "Spyrone", "Interrogator", "Jay Moon Walk", and the hit "Liquidator". CD

✨✧ Minoru Muraoka & Tadao SawaiMandom – Syakuhachi & Koto Otoko No Sekai (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Think (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Very groovy sounds from the 60s – a hip blend of jazz and traditional Japanese instrumentation – lightly grooving rhythms at the bottom, topped with some totally sweet koto and shakuhachi! The light reedwork is perfect for the bossa style of the tunes – and there's definitely a core influence from American and European groovy jazz of the time, but the end result is uniquely Japanese – given the use of the local instruments! Production is beautiful, too – pillowy sound that reminds us of the earliest years of CTI, when they were recording at A&M – and in a way, the album's just the sort of project they might have pursued back in those days. Titles include "Girl From Ipanema", "Mandom", "Manha De Carnaval", "Fool On The Hill", "Mediation", "Man & A Woman", and "Mr Monday". CD

✨✧ Janko NilovicPop Impressions ... LP
Montparnasse 2000/Underdog (France), Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Nothing pop about this groovy little record – save, perhaps, for the fact that it's been sampled by a number of hip hoppers over the years – because the set's one of the greatest ever from the legendary Janko Nilovic – a real masterpiece of complex grooves and offbeat instrumentation! The album goes way past the usual sound library funk – as Janko brings in so many different sounds and styles throughout – using flute, tympani, oboe, 12 string guitar, and other unusual instruments with a very freewheeling set of grooves! The whole thing's great – a true tribute to the master at his best – and titles include "Atoma", "Trumpet Sketches", "Sacha Pacha", "Essai Pop Art", "Blow Down", "Psycho Sound", and "Ballet Dans L'Espace".

✨✧ Janko NilovicSoul Impressions (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Montparnasse 2000/Underdog (France), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the funkiest records ever cut by studio jazz genius Janko Nilovic! This set definitely earns the "soul" in the title – as Janko blends his usual mad mix of studio sounds with some heavier 70s elements – including a fair bit of fuzzy guitar, funky beats, and some nice horn fills. About half the tracks on the album benefit from this sort of approach – kind of a cross between blacksploitation soundtrack scoring and the tighter instrumental moods of work by The Duke of Burlington. The other half is more in Janko's usual bag – nicely groovy jazz numbers, some with a slinky 70s edge! Titles include "Hippocampus", "Open Country", "Crazy Enterprise", "Drug Song", "Soul Impressions", "Man Of Genius", "Push Push", and "Family Tree". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Piero PiccioniColpo Rovente (180 gram blood splattered vinyl 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", "Blackflower", "Colpo Rovente", "Easy Dreamer", "Chinatown Drugs", and "LSD". CD features 12 bonus tracks – all unreleased alternates! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jennie SmithNightly Yours On The Steve Allen Show (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus track) ... CD
Canadian American/SSJ (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Very groovy work from Jennie Smith – a singer known for her work on the Tonight Show, but who sounds even hipper here! Mort Garson handled the backings, and they've got lots of the playful touches that you'd hear on his groovier 60s instrumental work – mixed with some of the watery strings used on mellower dates – both a perfect match for Smith's vocals, in ways that help take her out of the straighter style she was using in the late 50s. There's kind of a hip 60s "adult" feel to the record – quite different than the more sentimental modes of RCA a few years before – and Smith turns out to be a wonderful singer in such a setting. Titles include "Gravy Waltz", "Fly Me To The Moon", "This Could Be The Start Of Something", "Let's Face The Music & Dance", "My Man", and "Nice & Easy". CD features the bonus track "As I Love You".

✨✧ Mel TormeSwingin' On The Moon ... CD
Verve, 1960. Used ... Out Of Stock
Very groovy set of vocal tracks recorded by Mel during his years with Verve, and featuring some haunting arrangements by Russ Garcia. The title track – "Swingin' On The Moon" – is a goofy uptempo number of the sort that sometimes doesn't work, but which sounds very nice here, thanks to Mel's witty interpretation. The rest of the tracks, though, have a beautiful mellow spacey sound, as the Velvet Fog rolls in, and washes over the arrangements with vocals like "Moon Song", "No Moon At All", "The Moon Was Yellow", and "Moonlight Cocktail". Comes complete with a very cool cover that has a blonde model wearing a space helmet! CD

One of Joe's best records of the 60s! Jump For Joy is a nicely relaxed and swinging studio session – with arrangement by Jimmy Jones and Oliver Nelson, two talents who again bring out the best in Joe – a groovy and soulful sound that's often not captured as easily on record. Titles on that one include "Sounds Of The Night", "My Last Affair", "Jump For Joy", "It's A Wonderful World", and "You Perfect Stranger". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousMovements Vol 7 – Compiled By Tobias Kirmayer ... CD
Tramp (Germany), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Maybe the coolest collection so far in this all-great series – a package that really has the Movements set expanding its vibe – to include some jazzier and more R&B-based titles as well – a perfect mix for their long-running love of funk and soul! The collection's got a gritty sound right from the start – a reach that goes back to the earliest days of soul to find some skittish nuggets that are great groovers – and a run up to the 70s to pull together some hip modal jazz tracks that provide a wonderful sense of contrast – sounds that are all groovy, all soulful, but span a rich world of styles and scenes! There's loads of gems here we'd never heard before at all – and titles include "California Dreaming" by Nu Art Quartet, "Sugar" by Howard B Smith, "Woke Up This Morning" by Rene Baily, "Unchain My Heart" by Johnny B & The Music Makers, "Nitty Gritty Humbug" by Steve Mason Trio, "He's A Real Gone Guy" by Dorothy Ramsey, "Out Of This World" by George Smith, "How Can You Be So Cold" by Lee Mitchell, "Dasheka" by Bob Hines Trio, "The Deep End" by Ray Johnson, and "The Purple Jellybean" by Johnny Walker Trio.

✨✧ VariousNicola Conte Presents Viagem 5 – Lost Bossa & Samba Jazz Classics From The Swinging Brazilian 60s (10 inch vinyl) ... LP
Far Out (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... 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. 10" LP pressing features ten tracks in all – and titles include "Crepusculo" by Jazz 4, "Onda Quebrando" by Neyde Fraga, "Take It Easy My Brother Charlie" by Breno Sauer, "Se Voce Quiser Mas Sem Bronquear" by Elizabeth Viana, "Olhou Pra Mim" by Dr Severino & Conjunto Subverson, "Babalao" by Nelsinho & Os Ipanemas, "Ye Mele" by Papudinho, and "Matando A Miseria A Pau" by Edith Vega.

Tomas DonckerSmall World Part 1 ... CD
Groovysexmusic, 2008. Used ... $0.49
Warmly acoustic soul from Tomas Doncker – an artist who sounds even better here than on his last release, with a slightly folksy undercurrent that reminds us a bit of Terry Calier! Doncker's songwriting is even more personal than before – really taking some chances that are a nice change from the usual – supported with gentle acoustic guitar and percussion, and fuller keyboard-driven instrumentation on a few numbers. There's a slightly jazzy vibe to the music too – again like Callier's best – and Doncker's voice has this raspy charm that goes well beyond his years, and which really makes the tunes sound great. Titles include "License For Love", "Heart Full Of Blue", "Small World", "Children Of Darfur", and "Lucky Day". CD

Jazz LiberatorzFruit Of The Past ... LP
Kif (France), 2000s. New Copy 2LP ... Early November, 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.

✨✧ Michel LegrandEva ... CD
Bella Casa (UK), 1962. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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, and sweet little noirish feel. Titles include "Water Ski", "At The Bar", "Eva's Room", "Dumped Tivian", "One Morning In Roma", "Eva & Tivian", "The Wedding", and more, plus "Adam & Eve" – which is sung in a vocal version by the great Tony Middleton – and "Loveless Love", sung by "Billy Holiday"! CD
