✨✧ Stan GetzDidn't We ... LP
Verve, 1969. Used ... Out Of Stock
A very groovy batch of tracks that's got a sweet and easy feel – one that features Stan blowing to arrangements by the great Johnny Pate, recorded at a time when both of them were at the height of their powers! Although Pate's style is usually a bit funky, on this set, he's amazingly laidback – setting Stan up in a wash of strings and soul that creates space for some wonderfully breathy solos. The tunes are a mix of late 60s numbers – some of them pop, but not in a bad way – as Stan and Johnny really work some incredible sounds with titles that include "Mandy Is Two", "Didn't We", "The Shining Sea", and "The Night Has A Thousand Eyes".

✨✧ Eddie HarrisPlug Me In ... LP
Atlantic, 1968. Used ... Out Of Stock
Killer stuff – and an amazing album that not only showcases the varitone sax talents of Eddie Harris, but also features some fantastic arrangements by Chicago soul genius Charles Stepney! Harris plugs in right from the start – blowing an electric sax that comes up with some groovy groovy sounds – perfect for Stepney to work with on the backdrops – mixing together funky orchestrations, off-kilter strings, and even some prepared piano, ala John Cage – similar to the mode he used with Ramsey Lewis at Cadet! Tunes are wonderful – offbeat, funky, and plenty darn soulful – and titles include "Live Right Now", "It's Crazy", "Winter Meeting", and "Theme In Search Of A TV Commercial". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Gerardo IacoucciLe Avventura ... LP
Deneb/Finders Keepers (UK), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The masterpiece by one of the most obscure artists in the Italian sound library scene of the early 70s – music that easily moves from funky sounds to cosmic styles to jazzy moments and beyond – sometimes within the space of a single tune! 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

✨✧ Abbas MehrpouyaSoul Raga ... CD
Pharaway Sounds (Spain), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Funky sitar work – but recorded in pre-revolution Iran – a really amazing blends of scenes and sounds from the legendary Abbas Mehrpouya! Abbas' music has hardly been heard outside of his own nation – especially given the cultural crackdown of the past 30 years – and this set is a long-overdue look at the damn groovy sounds that came from his deft hands on the sitar! But in addition to Mehrpouya's own lines in the lead, the tunes have some really great arrangements and production too – styles that echo the Indian grooves of Ananada Shankhar, but which also have exotic elements that really groovy and funky experiments from the US and Europe as well. This package is stunning throughout – and hopefully, Abbas will finally get his due as an exotic groove visionary – on tracks that include "African Jumbo", "Ghame Tanhai", "Man Ke Mordehan", "To Kojaye", "Solenzara", "Sareban", "Sahrah", "Lotfeh Kodaye", "Asfanseye Eshgh", and "Soul Raga".

✨✧ Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66Crystal Illusions ... LP
A&M, 1969. Used ... Out Of Stock
Dreamy loveliness from Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66! The album's one of their true 60s classics for A&M – a sublime blend of female vocals, Brazilian rhythms, and jazzy instrumentation – groovily dancing with a light and breezy sound that influenced a generation, and which still sounds pretty darn fresh to our ears today! The album's filled with great versions of Brazilian tunes – and titles include Marcos Valle's "Viola", Edu Lobo's "Crystal Illusions", Milton Nasimento's "Empty Faces", plus "Song Of No Regrets", "Salt Sea", and "Dois Dias". Nice stuff, and very groovy! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ennio MorriconeL'Uccello Dalle Piume Di Cristallo (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Cinevox (Italy), 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... 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". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Roger Nichols & The Small Circle Of FriendsSuburbia Suite Presents Roger Nichols & The Small Circle Of Friends (9 x 7 inch single box set) ... 7-inch
A&M/Universal (Japan), Late 60s. New Copy 9 x 7 inch ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic tribute to some of our favorite music of the 60s – the legendary run of A&M sides by the great Roger Nichols! The sounds here are landmark 60s pop that we'd easily rank with the best work by Brian Wilson, Millennium, Gary Usher, Van Dyke Parks, or any of those other California sunny-eyed hipsters – done in the best A&M Records mode of the time, with an emphasis on groovy harmonies in a male/female style that reminds us of We Five or The Free Design – but a lot hipper too, as its more adult in its themes – with this way of bringing innocence into play with mature thoughtfulness, but in subtle modes that are perfect for the unique album's placement on A&M! Nichols would later be known for his songwriting with Paul Williams, and was also part of a core group of underground LA pop luminaries that included the whole Warner crew under Lenny Waronker – and this material definitely has some of the sly undertones of some of the hippest late 60s Warner work as well. The package features nine 7" single replicas of Roger's work for A&M – all mono, some issued under the Small Circle Of Friends, some as the Roger Nichols Trio – a few as replicas of promo-only 45s. The whole thing comes with original label and sleeve styles, wrapped in a special box with a groovy booklet with notes in Japanese. Titles include "Love Song Love Song", "Snow Queen", "Don't Go Breaking My Heart", "Our Day Will Come", "Kinda Wasted Without You", "Didn't Want To Have To Do It", "Just Beyond Your Smile", "I'll Be Back", "Let's Ride", "Love So Fine", "With A Little Help From My Friends", "The Drifter", "Trust", and "Cocoanut Grove". 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ RameshRamesh ... CD
Pharaway Sounds (Spain), Mid 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Dramatic funk from 70s Iran – some really compelling grooves, set to rich vocals by the lovely Ramesh! The approach here definitely borrows bits from Western culture – some rhythms and elements that echo American mainstream soul and funk of the time, with moogy touches too – but the overall execution is often a lot more exotic, and often has the same sort of appeal as Bollywood funk – with all the offbeat references that might imply! In another setting, Ramesh might sound too soppy or emotive – but here, amidst some very groovy grooves, her vocals are wonderful – and ring out as just the right topping for the creative instrumentation of the tracks. Titles include "Nago na", "Delakam", "Labe Daryaa", "Ghoroobaa Ghashangan", "Zoj", "Sharm-E Boos-E", and "Afosoos". CD

✨✧ 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

✨✧ Gabor SzaboJazz Raga ... LP
Impulse, 1966. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
One of the coolest albums ever cut by guitarist Gabor Szabo – a set that also has him playing sitar as well! The album's got a sound that's as groovy as you'd expect from the title – a mix of Gabor's usual jazz modes, which are already pretty darn great, and some of the Indian music sounds that were bubbling under in the 60s – a wicked little blend that makes for an album we've treasured for years! Rhythms often hit that breezy Spellbinder mode of Gabor's Impulse years, but the addition of sitar and tablas makes for a great change too – one of the best chapters in Szabo's legendary 60s years. Bernard Pretty Purdie plays drums on all cuts, and titles include "Raga Doll", "Search for Nirvana", "Ravi", "Krishna", "Sophisticated Wheels", "Comin Back", "Summertime", "Mizrab", and "Walking On Nails".

✨✧ Piero UmilianiIl Dono Del Nilo (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Spettro (Italy), 1964. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A haunting 60s soundtrack from the great Piero Umiliani – done for a TV special on ancient Egyptian culture, and handled with a vibe that's a bit different than some of Umiliani's other work! The tunes have this great use of exotic elements – percussion, flute, and even organ that's played in a way that feels eerie and ancient – all with a style that's maybe more exotica than some of Piero's usual mode sounds of the time – shaded in with loads of wonderful touches around the edges, almost sounding like a much trippier take on Les Baxter modes from a few years before! There's one 60s-styled number – the groovy "Twist Del Faraone" – and other titles include "Verso Il Dudan", "Cleopatra", "Mercato Arabo", "Mausoleo Dell'Agakan", "Magia Delle Acque", "La Valle Dei Re", and "Abusimbel".

✨✧ VariousYeye VO/VF – Versions Originales Et Versions Francaises De La Naissance Du Yeye 1955 to 1962 (3CD set) ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
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.

✨✧ VariousZendooni – Funk, Psychedelia & Pop From The Iranian Pre-Revolution Generation ... CD
Pharaway Sounds, 1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Some of the wildest sounds we've ever heard from Iran – a wealth of wonderful grooves that show that there was plenty happening in that unique scene before the Ayatollah came in and clamped down on Western culture! Styles really intertwine nicely throughout – mixing funk with pop with psych, disco, and even some soundtracky styles that feel a bit Bollywood at points – all coming across with a really cool, groovy, and other-worldly sound that has us loving the whole thing all the way through! The folks at Guerssen have done a great job with the package – adding enough good notes and quality sound to ensure that this one's not just a knockoff – and instead features a great range of well-chosen tracks, put together beautifully. Titles include "Setareh" by Azita, "Aroos Khanom" by Amir Rassaie, "Zandooni" by Farzin, "Bi Vafa" by Kambiz, "Safar" by Hassan Shamaizadeh, "Ey Vatan Iran" by Emad Ram, "Ghebleh" by Nooshafarin, "Gholake Cheshat" by Simin Ghanem, and "Rahgozar" by Morteza.

✨✧ Brian BriggsSelected Music From The Album Brain Damage ... LP
Bearsville/Get On Down, 1980. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A great lost record of minimalist club – a set that we'd rank right up there with classics by Arthur Russell, Liquid Liquid, or some of the other most creative talents on the New York scene at the start of the 80s! As with work by those other two artists, there's an experimental approach here, but one that's very very groovy – mostly just spare beats, loose instrumentation, and other sounds – woven together in ways that certainly have strong post-punk inspiration, but which can also work perfectly on a dancefloor too! This is the kind of work that would be equally at home in the clubs and in a punk club too – the crossover you'd experience at the legendary Danceteria – and titles include "AEO (parts 1 & 2)", "Psyclone", "Nervous Breakdown", and "Spy Vs Spy".

✨✧ Oronzo De FilippiOctopus 2 – Favole Per Ogni Eta ... LP
Octopus/Cabiria (Italy), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A famous Italian sound library album, and for good reason too – as the set's got an approach that's so unique, we're hard-pressed to compare it to anything else! The music has a really wonderful sense of variety – some groovy numbers, some playful numbers, and a few darker spots here and there – all with a vivid quality that reminds us why we first fell in love with the Italian studio scene so many years ago! Instrumentation is varied from track to track – and even when familiar, as on some of the cuts that feature organ, the performance is unusual – with lots of compelling sounds and tones that really keep things interesting. Titles include "Girotondo", "Giochi D'Infanzia", "Tema Titoli", "Saltellando", "Castello Stregato", "Bambola Triste", "Mercato Arabo", "Albero Di Natale", and "Sogno". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Honey LtdComplete LHI Recordings (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
LHI/Light In The Attic, 1968. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Sublime girl group sounds from the great Lee Hazlewood – the complete recordings of Honey Ltd – an obscure Hazlewood project from the end of the 60s! The style here combines all the depths of Lee's own music with some of the sweeter Sunshine Pop sounds you'd expect from the cover – a really unique mix that has these moodier moments coming forth at times that really surprise us – and which takes the music way way past that of any of the girls' hipper contemporaries – especially the similarly-named Honeys! The harmonies are incredible – definitely rooted in jazz, with a complexity that goes way past pop – and in a way, the group remind us a bit of the incredible Third Wave group who recorded for MPS around the same time – although these gals definitely get a more sinister sound from Lee's help in the studio. Songs are mostly originals by the group – penned with some very compelling lyrics – and the album features great arrangements from Ian Frebairn Smith, who really does a great job of mixing the baroque with the groovy! The set features the full rare album by the quartet, plus two single tracks, and some unreleased cuts as well – titles that include "The Warrior", "Silk N Honey", "Come Down", "For Your Mind", "I've Got Your Mind", "Tomorrow Your Heart", "Eli's Coming", "I'm So Glad", "Love The Devil (backing track)", and "Silver Threads & Golden Needles".

✨✧ Dick HymanMoon Gas/Moog The Electric Eclectics (with bonus tracks) ... CD
MGM/Omni (Australia), 1963/1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Incredible work from the great Dick Hyman – two of his hippest electric albums back to back on a single CD, with great bonus cuts too! First up is Moon Gas – one of the greatest albums that Dick Hyman ever recorded – a mad mix of keyboards that more than lives up to its name and its wonderful cover! The album has Dick playing instruments that include electronic organs, keyboards, and ondioline – working in a "moon" oriented style that has lots of bloops and bleeps tripping over very groovy tunes, all augmented by wild wordless vocals by Mary Mayo. The whole thing's kind of like a funky Yma Sumac album, recorded on Saturn – and the whole thing's sublime, from conception, to production, to execution, and even the cover! Titles include "Moon Gas", "Space Reflex", "Maid Of the Moon", and "Desafinado". Moog is one of the coolest, grooviest moog albums you'll ever hope to buy – a wonderful foray into the new world of synthetic sounds, done by pianist Dick Hyman – who was working in a straight jazz format just a decade before! Dick turns out to be a wonderful talent on the moog – very well-suited to the record, with just the right sort of quirky, playful approach to bring the best out of the instrument – at a level that's right up there with the best by Perrey & Kingsley, and maybe even cooler – given that Dick doesn't rely nearly as much on studio tricks! All tunes are pretty bouncy, groovy, and filled with sweet moogy touches – and titles include "The Minotaur", "The Legend Of Johnny Pot", "Improvisation In Fourths", "Topless Dancers Of Corfu", and "The Moog & Me". CD features two great bonus tracks – the very funky "Give It Up Or Turn It Loose" and "Kolumbo". CD

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

Great stuff from trumpeter Jimmy Owens! Owens was always one of the hipper talents on his instrument during the 70s, and this A&M set features him in a nice groovy group that includes 2 guitars, and piano by Kenny Barron. The tracks are long, and offer Owens chance to open up amidst the shifting soundscapes and soulful rhythms. Titles include "What's The Use", "Do It To It", "My Life", and a great version of "Caravan". LP, Vinyl record album
