Zalla (Piero Umiliani)Suspense (with bonus CD) ... LP
Liuto/Schema (Italy), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
One of the coolest records ever cut under the Zalla alias of Italian soundtrack composer Piero Umiliani – a set that definitely lives up to the suspense promised in the title, but with lots of groovy touches along the way! Think of the album as kind of an update of older "scare" records of the 50s and 60s – such as the Shock album by Creed Taylor – almost a soundtrack for a horror film that doesn't exist, given a lot more freedom overall, because there's no image to direct the music! Umiliani's always got a very visual style to his sounds, but really outdoes himself here – working with instrumentation that includes guitar, Hammond, vibes, Fender Rhodes, and plenty of percussion – all produced and recorded in really cool ways, to get some very unusual sounds out of the instrumental sources. Titles include "Ambiguo", "Rimoris", "Dietro Le Sbarre", "Evasione Notturna", "Giallo", "Killer", "Inchiesta", "Suspense Angosciosa", and "Insonia". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousAfrica Airways 3 – Afro-Psych Excursion 1972 to 1984 ... LP
Africa Seven (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $19.99
Freaky funk in a variety of flavors – tunes that are every bit as groovy as the material we heard on the previous two volumes of the Africa Airwaves series – but maybe a bit trippier too! These aren't the kind of tracks that are on the muddier, grubbier side of psych – and instead, they keep mostly in an Afro Funk mode in terms of the rhythms, but let the guitar lines use a bit more in the way of effects – or allow the production to get a bit more way-out, so that some of the core elements in the mix are taken into really great territory! About half the tracks are heavily instrumental, with some really great solos – and titles include "Odylife" by Damas Swing Orchestra, "Zinabu" by Bunzu Soundz, "Nzango" by African Black, "Atis A Tis" by Ifang Bondi & the Afro Mandigue Sounds, "Push Am Forward" by Afro National, "Onga Ben Ma Na Mene Mebua" by Messi Jacques & Les Dissoumbas De Libreville, "Alla Wakbarr" by Ofo & The Black Company, and "Shake Me" by Aka.

VariousBeretta 70 – Roaring Themes From Thrilling Italian Police Films 1971-80 ... CD
Crippled Dick (Germany), Early 70s. Used ... $24.99
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

VariousCole Slaw Music Club – A Rhythm & Blues Revue ... CD
Cree (Germany), Late 50s. New Copy ... $21.99 24.99
Hard-grooving R&B from a host of hip talents from the 50s – music that's a bit blues, a bit jazz, and which goes past the obvious tunes you'd usually find on a collection like this! The cuts were chosen by the folks at the Cole Slaw Club in Germany – a specialist spot to step to old school grooves like these – and the sounds are a very cool mix of jukebox jive, groovy instrumentals, and some deeper-voiced tunes that really give the collection a lot of depth! The collection's not afraid to step between different genres in search of a swinging groove – in the best Bear Family/Cree Records style – and titles include "I Changed My Mind Jack" by Jo Ann Campbell, "Spider In The Web" by The Dooley Sisters, "Big John" by Richard Berry, "The Sneak" by Jimmy Oliver's Orchestra, "Salome Twist" by The Carroll Brothers, "Talk About Me" by Screamin Jay Hawkins, "Sugar Diabetes" by Eddie Banks, "Stolen Love" by Miss Lavell, "Sweet Little Love Like You" by Al Brown & The Tune Toppers, "Dance Of The Goony Bird" by Pat Miller, "Summertime" by Sylvia Mora, and "My Old Man" by Buddy & Ella Johnson.

VariousDer Klang Der Fruhen Jahre – The Kuckuck Singles 1970 to 1974 ... CD
Kuckuck/Ohrwaschl Records (Germany), Early 70s. Used 2CD ... $11.99
Early sounds from Germany's Kuckuck label – an imprint that issued some killer psych, prog, and jazz albums in the 70s – heard here on an assortment of early 7" single releases from the first few years of the label! The music is a surprising blend of instrumental numbers, pop, and other tunes that have a very German vibe – some of the brightness of the "economic miracle" years, and some especially great strands of German easy – that groovy, bouncy sort of style that you'll also find on some German soundtrack and sound library records from the period. The vocal numbers are nice, too – some harder rockers, and some fully-produced pop numbers with a great swing. 2CD set features 24 a-sides from singles, plus 22 more flipsides too – titles that include "Buffalo Brain" and "Back Home To Canada" by Jack Grunsky, "Scachmatt" and "You've Guessed" by Johnny Tame, "Spinne Im Netz" and "Die Graue Stadt" by Ihre Kinder, "Mr Monday" by Bernadette, "Wie Ein Blitz" and "Sylvia" by Sam Spence, "Long Live The Queen" by Bunter, "O Lonesome Sorry" by Repairs, "Widow Woman" by CMT, "Can't Help Thinking" by Tony Kelly, and "The Power & The Glory" by Keith West.

Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
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.

VariousGilles Peterson – Magic Peterson Sunshine ... CD
MPS (Germany), Late 60s/1970s. Used ... $14.99
The magic sunshine here is all from the legendary catalog of MPS Records – unusually groovy jazz tracks from the 60s and 70s, all hand-picked by the equally legendary DJ Gilles Peterson! Peterson first turned many ears onto MPS back a few decades ago – with his excellent Talkin Jazz series – and this set follows strongly in that legacy, but also really shows both the deeper knowledge of the label's catalog we've acquired over the years, and the further development of Gilles' incredible ear for finding an unusual tune! The music here isn't just funky jazz, it's a huge range of sounds at once – some modal and spiritual elements, some global jazz experiments, a few vocal tracks, and even some very cool space-age styles – served up in a package that seems to make each new track burst forward with fresh feeling in the company of the others – that rare quality that can make a compilation like this so great. Titles include "Lillemor" by Francy Boland, "Out Of The Sorcellery" by Eddie Louiss, "Big P" by Modern Jazz Group Freiburg, "Stone Ground Seven" by Singers Unlimited, "Harp Revolution" by Johnny Teupen, "Service" by Orchester Roland Kovac, "Love Train" by Third Wave, "Dew" by Don Ellis, "Our Chant" by Gunter Hampel, "Denn Liebe Ist Stark Wie Der Tod" by Wolfgang Lauth, "Why & How" by Mark Murphy, and "Cancion Del Fuego Fatuo" by Pedro Iturralde with Paco DeLucia.

VariousGirls Want The Boys – Sweden's Beat Girls 1964 to 1970 ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $16.99
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!

This fantastic compilation is a batch of cool and groovy tracks lifted from East Germany sci-fi films of the 60s and 70s – and if this is what's out there in space, sign us up for the next rocket trip! The tunes are a mix of mod 60s grooves, weird keyboard and guitar effects, funky beats, and other cosmic-influenced sounds that make the set fresher than most any other soundtrack compilation we've heard in years.

Includes work by Andrez Markowski, Karl Ernst Sasse, Gunther Fischer, and others – and the package looks totally totally great! 33 tracks in all. CD

Le Pop Musik (Germany), 2016. New Copy ... $15.99
New sounds from the contemporary French music scene – a huge amount of excellent tracks you might not come across on your own! Unlike some of the previous volumes in the Le Pop series, which might have skewed towards more classic-sounding music – the range of styles here is pretty great, and pretty darn groovy – some numbers that are very 21st Century in their use of beats, rhythms, and production – others that rework older styles in postmodern manners, with creative touches that are completely wonderful! There's plenty here to expand your understanding way past Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin – and titles include "Cheri" by Oai Star, "Eclipse Twist" by Raidomatic, "Singapore Slang" by Call Me Poupee", "Jmy Attendais Pas" by Clea Vincent, "Y'A Des Garcons" by Fabulous Trobadors, "La Noce Ya No Existe" by Benjamin Biolay, "Danze Avec Moi" by Noze, "Comme Un Manouche Sans Guitare" by Thomas Dutronc, and "Bordel" by Alister.

Tramp (Germany), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $8.99
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.

VariousNew Jazz Festival – Balver Hohle 1974 & 1975 (11CD box set) ... CD
Be! (Germany), Mid 70s. New Copy 11CD ... $129.99 199.99
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

VariousPied Piper – The Pinnacle Of Detroit Northern Soul ... LP
Pied Piper/Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $14.99
Stunning soul from the Detroit underground of the late 60s – a treasure trove of gems that literally grew up in the shadows of Motown – given that the work here was spearheaded by the Pied Piper Productions team of Jack Ashford, Mike Terry, Joe Hunter and Herbie Williams of the legendary Funk Brothers! There's a tighter, more energetic vibe to the material than on some of the more grandly soaring sounds of Detroit's bigger hits of the time – and we really love the unfussy, driving soul essence at play here – a gritty, groovy, and really hard-burning sound that makes just about every number here a gem – and a real change, if you only know the bigger hits from Motown! The track selection is wonderful – and even includes a number of never-issued tracks from the time, plus singles issued on Kapp and some smaller labels too. Titles include "Just Can't Leave You" by Tony Hester, "I Can't Hold On" by Lorraine Chandler, "We Go Together (alt with rap intro)" by The Cavaliers, "Voo Doo Madamoiselle" by September Jones, "More Than A Memory" by Nancy Wilcox, "That's When I Need You" by Freddy Butler, "This Heart Is Lonely" by Rose Batiste, "I'm Not Built That Way" by The Hesitations, You Only Live Twice (original take)" by Lorrane Chandler, "Ooh It Hurts Me" by The Cavaliers, and "Set My Herat At Ease" by Mikki Farrow.

A fantastic collection of songs originally penned by soundtrack genius Ennio Morricone – served up here in a host of vocal versions that really show how many different artists and styles he influenced over the years! Some of the cuts here are expected Italian pop singles – vocal variations of Morricone themes in Italian – but as the set moves on, there's a really groovy range of different sounds from all over the world – some with a relation to the soundtrack/sound library scene, but lots more by a variety of artists inspired by the genius of the maestro. As with other sets like this on Ace Records, the package features detailed notes – helping put all the music in context – and the 21 track set list is full of surprises, mostly with songs from the golden late 60s/early 70s era, mixed with some stunning gems from later years. Titles include "Questi Vent'Anni Miei" by Catherine Spaak, "Una Stanza Vuota" by Lisa Gastoni, "Hurry To Me" by Amii Stewart, "La Ballata Di Hank McCain" by Jackie Lynton, "Ballad Of Sacco & Vanzetti" by Scott Walker, "Ricordare" by Gerard Depardieu, "It Couldn't Happen Here" by Pet Shop Boys, "Il Tempo Sa" by Romina Arena, "Amalia Por Amor" by Hayley Westenra, "A Brisa Do Coracao" by Dulces POntes, and "Canzione Basilica" by Fausto Cigliano.

This totally wonderful set has Muro mixing it up with snippets of songs from Japanese animated work of the 60s, 70s, and 80s – very cool, very groovy cuts that bring together funky rhythms, jazzy solos, weird electronics, and plenty more – all then woven by Muro into this stunning mix of sounds that includes bits from 37 different songs! All the titles and information are in Japanese – but the feel of the set is like some of the best funk soundtrack work you love from the 70s – from American blacksploitation to the best in European cop and crime. And with Muro on the decks, the mix is perfect – done with the same sort of genius as his Fender Rhodes mixes from a few years back! CD

An all-Atlantic Records volume of this excellent series from Ace Records – one that features rare singles from the 60s that go way past the label's familiar hits – including a good blend of soul tracks, sweet harmonies, and rare rockers we never would have heard otherwise! The collection offers up the strong focus on mid 60s female work that you'll find in previous volumes – but there's also some harder edges here, given the Atlantic approach – and the tracks run the gamut from New York numbers to Motorcity sounds, and even some west coast gems!

A really sweet riff on western soundtrack styles by Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass, though still in Herb's breezy 60s style – wonderful stuff, and a set that's a bit overlooked in his classic A&M canon! The way the bright and sunny Herb Alpert jazzy pop instrumental style melds so nicely with chugging western sounds, and rustic nylon string guitars blend with soaring orchestral pop strings really makes for a heck of a groovy record! It's a whole lot of fun, and unique in the Albert catalog. Titles include "The Brass Are Comin' (The Little Train Of Caipira)", "I'll Be Back", "Anna", "You Are My Life", "Robbers & Cops", "Country Lake", "The Maltese Melody", "Anna", "Moments", and "Good Morning Mr Sunshine".

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. Titles include "Water Ski", "At The Bar", "One Morning In Roma", "Eva & Tivian", "The Wedding", and "Adam & Eve", which is sung in a vocal version by the great Tony Middleton! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Red NorvoNorvo...Naturally! ... LP
Rave, 1957. Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A sublime 50s session from vibist Red Norvo – one that features him working with a really sparkling quintet! The album's got a feel that's similar to Red's fragile trio grooves of the time – but which is fleshed out a bit more by work on flute and alto from Robert Drasnin, and some great guitar lines from the under-recorded player Jimmy Wymble. The tunes are spare, slight, and very focused on the soundshapes of the tunes – lyrically dancing around in the best Norvo-like mode of his glory years. Tunes are mostly standards – nicely done versions of tracks like "Stella By Starlight", "I'll Remember April", and "Lullaby Of Birdland" – but there are also 2 nice originals – "Scorpion's Nest" and "Spider's Web" – which have Red's groovy tightly arranged vibe style in the forefront!
