✨✧ Moog MachineSwitched-On Rock ... LP
Columbia, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Acid rocky moogy stuff! The record's one of those "let's do a lot of pop covers on the moog" – and it features moogy updates of 60's tunes like "Get Back", "Jumpin' Jack Flash", "Feelin' Groovy", "Yummy Yummy Yummy", and "Time of the Season", which sounds the best of all the tracks. Russ Barnard put the whole thing together, and it's got a very groovy sound! LP, Vinyl record album
(70s pressing. Cover has light ringwear.)

✨✧ Celso MuriloMr Ritmo ... CD
Pawal/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1959. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A very groovy set from keyboardist Celso Murilo – a 60s album of organ and piano instrumentals with a really cool groove! The record follows in the best tradition of small combo bossa sessions – mixing together a strongly rhythmic approach that includes percussion by the great Rubens Bassini, plus backing on trumpet, flute, and timbales – all set to the pace of Murilo's sweet lines on the keys! The style's more expansive than 60s work by Walter Wanderley or Ed Lincoln – more open to influences from American Latin music, in addition to the core samba and bossa sounds that inform the work. The whole thing's great – a driving, lively little set that's a delight throughout! Titles include "Rosa Morena", "Ritmo Sabroso", "Cha Cha Celso", "Paul Pereira", "Los Marcianos", "Chorou Chorou", and "Rico Vacilon". CD

✨✧ Superfine DandelionSuperfine Dandelion (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Mainstream, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Stripped down psychedelic rock from the late 60s Phoenix scene – groovy work from Superfine Dandelion! The group takes a straight forward approach with influences of some of the most swirling sounds of the era – The freewheeling grooves of the San Francisco sounds blended with the more rural bits of the post folk boom. Titles include "People In The Street", "Crazy Town", "My Place", "Day And Night", "My Place", "Janie's Tomb", "It's Raining", Don't Try To Call Me", "The Other Sidewalk", "What's The Hurry" and more.

✨✧ Franco TamponiMondo Sexy Di Notte (aka Mondo Sexuality) ... CD
Dagored (Italy), 1962. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Short, sexy and mondo themes by Franco Tamponi – early 60s material with strains of the pulpy pop of the time – sly, jazzy and groovy! Mondo Sexy Di Notte, aka Mondo Sexuality was director Mino Loy's 1962 musical exotica documentary – a seedy little charmer that was one of the earlier efforts in the genre – and Tamponi goes above and beyond the call of duty – a set with intimate moments, but also evocative of the more sweeping modes of Italian film music and world cinema. Many of the horn arrangements have a Latin feel, with some Middle Eastern grooves and a real love for globe spanning sounds – with sweeping strings and brass, rumbling drums and percussion, and exotic modes galore! 30 untitled tracks.

✨✧ Piero UmilianiSweden – Heaven & Hell (Svezia – Inferno E Paradiso) ... LP
Omicron/Schema (Italy), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest soundtracks ever from the mighty Piero Umiliani – sounds initially written for a film that was an international "sexpose" of daily life in Sweden – but which have grown to even greater fame on their own over the years – thanks to the talent of the maestro! The music here is awash in groovy elements – lots of sweet Hammond organ lines, mod basslines, and some especially cool wordless vocals from the choir of Alessandro Alessandroni – scatting away in a great way alongside the instruments, and bringing an added level of breathy eroticism to the whole thing! This special LP version recreates the original Omicron release of the record – with titles that include the two lyrical tracks "You Tried To Warn Me" and "Sleep Now Little One", sung by Lydia McDonald – plus the tracks "Topless Party", "Eva Svedense", "Essere Donna", "La Signora Cameriera", "FotoModelle", and "Le Ragazze Dell'Archipellago". (Note, does not contain the track "Mah Na Mah Na", which is on other versions of the soundtrack – but it appears on the "partner" reissue of Umiliani's Psichedelica from Schema, under the title "Viva La Sauna Svedese".)

✨✧ Joe WilliamsJump For Joy ... LP
RCA, 1963. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

Blue Note, 1997. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock

Titles include "Wives & Lovers" by Grant Green, "The Look Of Love" by The Three Sounds, "Do You Know The Way To San Jose" by Groove Holmes, "This Guy's In Love With You" by Stanley Turrentine, and "Promises, Promises" by The Jazz Crusaders.

✨✧ VariousCole Slaw Music Club – A Rhythm & Blues Revue ... CD
Cree (Germany), Late 50s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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.

✨✧ VariousSoul Sok Sega – Sega Sounds From Mauritius 1973 to 1979 ... CD
Strut (UK), Mid 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Amazing music you've probably never heard before – all from the tiny island of Mauritius in the 70s, and served up in a stunning mix of funk, blues, and soul! The grooves here are very offbeat – with rhythms that belie the island's location in the Indian Ocean near Madagascar, mixed with more contemporary touches on electric guitar, bass, and keyboards – set to lyrics that are often sung in French, usually with these haunting changes and oddly melancholy modes – all of which makes for music that's every bit as emotively powerful as it is downright groovy! Strut Records have always turned us on to new and unusual sounds – but this time around, they've really done something special – and the collection is one of our favorite releases ever from the long-running label. Titles include "Afro Mauricien" by Georges Jean Louis, "Mo Mari Fini Alle" by Catherine Velienne, "Elida" by Michel Legris, "Mone Lasser Dire Toi" by Harold Berty, "Bhai Aboo" by Claudio, "Mo Parrain" by Christophe, "Manuel Bitor" by John Kenneth Nelson, "Eliza" by Georgie Joi, and "Soul Sock Sega" by Ti L'Afrique.

✨✧ VariousZendooni – Funk, Psychedelia & Pop From The Iranian Pre-Revolution Generation ... CD
Pharaway Sounds, 1970s. Used ... Temporarily 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.

✨✧ Alessandro AlessandroniAlessandro Alessandroni – Butterfly #2 ... CD
Cometa (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Stunning sounds from the great Alessandro Alessandroni – an artist who contributed to countless Italian soundtracks in the 60s and 70s, and who sounds even more amazing here in this rare set of sound library funk! The album's all instrumental, and is overflowing with groovy little tracks – which mix together a blend of jazzy, fuzzy, and dreamy elements – all of them pretty darn nice! The approach is great – leaner than some of Alessandroni's soundtrack material, and more direct too – with a vibe that's right upfront, as the tunes leap from sound to sound, style to style – but always in a nicely trippy version of instrumental funk. Titles include "Flautiana", "Invention", "Evolution", "Giovane Flirt", "Campeggiatori", "Arcipelago", "On The Boat", "Cielo Giallo", and "Acque Azzurre". CD

✨✧ Bixio-Frizzi-TemperaMagnetic Systems ... CD
Cinevox/Finders Keepers (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A tremendous trio from the Italian soundtrack scene of the 70s – Franco Bixio, Fabio Frizzi, and Vince Tempera – all great talents on their own, but a real powerhouse of grooves when they got together on work like this! The Bixio-Fizzi-Tempera name always meant something extra-groovy on a record – either an extra-funky soundtrack with lots of weird touches, or the kind of cool Italian single that might be somewhere between sound library funk and more progressive material – a really rich array of sounds that came from the trio during their years working together in the mid 70s! This package brings together some of the best cuts from those days, with an extra special Finders Keepers/Andy Votel ear for the weirdest and most unusual sounds – which creates an album that's plenty funky, but in ways that are very different from the usual US or European styles of the time. Basslines, heavy drums, spacey keyboards, and odd guitar sounds abound – and titles include "Electronic Sound", "Avangiu", "Godzilla", "Allucinazione Mistiche", "Death's Song", "Escape", "Vai Gorilla", "Night Club Dance", "The Hunt Down", and "Concessioni Naturali".

✨✧ 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.

✨✧ Gustav BromPolymelomodus (with bonus track) ... CD
Supraphon/GAD (Poland), 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A rare gem from the legendary Gustav Brom – the Czech bandleader you might know for his famous records in the 60s, or his moon-trip set for MPS – sounding equally groovy here on this Supraphon album from 1976! There's a slight touch of electricity in the mix – some specially nice Fender Rhodes and moog, which are layered in with Brom's wonderful formation of horns in the group – this shifting palette of trumpet, tenor, trombone, and reed elements – used at a level that's right up there with the best MPS groups of the time, and some of the Clarke Boland Big Band records too! But this time around, the rhythms are maybe even more powerful than usual – downright funky at some key moments, and plenty groovy at all the rest – and the tracks are longer, and often allow for some deeper passages than usual for Gustav – although to be fair, his sounds are often pretty darn deep! Titles include "Bounty", "Festival", "Polymelomodus", "Romance Nad Mzi", "Sedimentace", and a sweet cover of Steely Dan's "Do It Again". Great reissue – with excellent sound, detailed notes, and a bonus alternate take of "Do It Again". CD

✨✧ Tim BuckleyGreetings From LA ... LP
Warner/Straight, 1972. Used ... Out Of Stock
A later effort from Tim Buckley with a bigger sound and more of a straight ahead approach – with a big nod in the groove direction and some R&B creeping in! In lesser hands, Greetings From LA could be considered more of a "commercial" album than the unpredictable stylistic variances of Tim's earlier records, but his vocals and depth of passion keeps it a riveting experience. Rolling boogie piano, some vamping organ, groovy strings, and even some female chorus backing vocals bring elements of 70s soul and juke joint sounds into the mix – while Buckley's emoting is on par with earlier work – even if some of the lyrics are kind of on the bawdy side. Includes "Move With Me", "Get On Top", "Sweet Surrender", "Night Hawkin'", "Devil Eyes", "Hong Kong Bar" and "Make It Right". LP, Vinyl record album
(Later non-gatefold pressing.)

✨✧ Lallo Gori with I Cantori ModerniCome Svaligiammo La Banca D'Italia (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1966. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
An incredibly groovy and fairly obscure soundtrack by Lallo Gori – with some sublime scat vocals by I Cantori Moderni! The film is Come Svaligiammo La Banca D'Italia (How We Robbed The Bank Of Italy), which kicks off, appropriately enough, with a sly, slinky kind of crime/spy flick groove, but from there it gets a lot more upbeat and sunny – it's a real gem! Includes many varied sequences on the title theme, "Come Svaligiammo La Banca D'Italia", which range from stripped down flute, to baroque jazz, to uptempo Italo R&B, to eerie suspense sounds and beyond – often with the those flawlessly groovy Cantori Moderni vocals! 15 in all.

✨✧ I GresI Gres Vol 1, 2, & 3 ... CD
Cometa (Italy), 1976. New Copy 2CD Gatefolod ... Out Of Stock
A sublime selection of work from this legendary sound library ensemble – 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 three albums wonderfully wrap 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. 2CD set features all the tracks from Vols 1, 2, & 3 of the I Gres series – 38 numbers that include "Yellow Green", "Duo Balls", "Minor Bossa", "Ronde Bosse", "Hot Dogs", "Sweet Steel", "Shadow", "Wordless", "Country Point", "Corale Ostinato", "Ritmo Pampa", "To Wes", "To Jimmy", and "Moaning".

✨✧ Takeshi Inomata & Sound LimitedSounds Of Sound Limited (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Columbia/P-Vine (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A killer funky group from early 70s Japan – a slightly large ensemble, but one with some really heavy drums at the bottom – plus some great use of organ and electric guitar! There's a tight brace of horns at the top – flute, tenor, trumpets, and trombone – but the rhythms are what really drive the record, and give the whole thing a sometimes-funky, always-groovy quality that never lets up! The mode is almost soundtrack funk at times – jazz, but filled with some rich colors and expansive tones too – and there's a sophistication here that really rewards repeated listenings, but never gets in the way of the groovier moments too. Titles include "Theme Mustache", "Tak's Tune", "Joint", "Monster", "Lullaby For Yuh", and "Scotland Scene". CD

✨✧ Dave Mackay & Vicky HamiltonDave Mackay & Vicky Hamilton ... CD
Impulse (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the grooviest albums of the late 60s – a lost vocal treasure from the team of Dave MacKay & Vicky Hamilton! The pair were sort of like a hip version of Jackie & Roy – usually singing together on their tracks, with a mixed male/female vocal approach that sounds totally great – and which really fits the breezy mood of the tunes on the set! Dave himself plays Fender Rhodes and piano on the album – along with an odd little combo that includes flute and tenor played by Ira Schulman, percussion by Francisco Aguabella, and guest sitar by Bill Plummer. The whole thing's got an amazing feel that's equal parts groovy jazz and sunshine pop – and tunes include a great reading of Tom Scott's "Blues For Hari", Flip Nunez's classic "See You Later", and the original tracks "Jacques The Junkman", "Samba For Vicky", "Now", and "Moon Rider".

✨✧ Peter NeroLove Trip/From Hair To Hollywood ... CD
Columbia/Vocalion (UK), 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Two of the grooviest albums Peter Nero ever recorded – back to back on a single CD! Love Trip has Peter Nero really opening up with cool mod sounds at the end of the 60s – lots more funk and soul currents in his music than before, yet still plenty of that bold, dramatic Peter Nero piano – set to cool arrangements from Frank Hunter, Claus Ogerman, and Walter Raim! The best cuts have almost a groovy 60s soundtrack vibe – with the added bonus of Nero's rich piano tone – and titles include "You ARe There", "Amy's Theme", "Blue Fantasy", "If You've Got A Heart", "Rapido", "Lover Come Back To Me", and "The Right To Love". From Hair To Hollywood is even better – a totally excellent album! Sure, Peter Nero could be one of the sleepier piano players of the 60s – but on this little gem, he's playing moog, and it sounds great! Nero's taking moog to the sweet soundtrack groovers "Midnight Cowboy" and The Windmills Of Your Mind" – which both come out in a dark spooky style, and "Windmills" sounds especially great, as it begins with a moogy breakbeat that would make Perry-Kingsley weep! Moog's also heard on "Be In" and "Let the Sunshine In" from Hair – and the album also includes 4 other numbers from Galt MacDermot's funky musical, like "Aquarius", "Hair", and "Good Morning Starshine". Frank Hunter did the arrangements – and there's a lot of nice funk running through the LP! CD

Tom ClayWhat The World Needs Now Is Love ... LP
MoWest, Early 70s. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A bit goofy, but a pretty compelling record issued on Motown's MoWest subsidiary. Tom Clay creates these groovy tracks that mix popular soul instrumentals (arranged by Gene Page and Artie Butler) with recitations that have a very righteous political feel. The single on the record, "What The World Needs Now/Abraham, Martin, & John", features Clay asking kids what prejudice is, while militaristic sound effects and JFK speeches creep in and out of the mix. The rest of the album continues this powerful kind of soundscape experiment, and it's actually a pretty resonant work that still holds up nicely today. LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a very light stain on one corner.)
