✨✧ Phil RanelinVibes From The Tribe ... CD
Tribe/Hefty, 1976. Used ... $12.99
An excellent lost classic from Detroit soul jazz powerhouse Phil Ranelin! Trombonist Ranelin was one of the key figures in the city's Tribe Records scene – and this album is one of the greatest that the label ever issued. The set features Ranelin on trombone, Marcus Belgrave on trumpet, Kenny Cox on electric piano, and Harold McKinney on piano – plus other luminaries from the incredibly strong Detroit scene of the time. The set includes the funky classic "Sounds From The Village", the slow spacey breakbeat number "Vibes From The Tribe", and the jazzy groover "For The Children". Also includes "He The One We All Knew", an extended piece that features members of The Griot Galaxy – and the reissue features 3 bonus tracks "Vibes From The Tribe (extended)", "Vibes From The Tribe (8 track)", and "Sounds From The Village (extended)".

Michael Crichton (writing as John Lange)Venom Business ... Book
Hard Case Crime, 1970. New Copy ... $5.99 9.95
A snake handler with a penchant for smuggling – caught at the center of this early thriller penned by a young Michael Crichton – working here right before leaping into film with hits like Westworld and Coma! The book's a lot grittier than either of those movies, though – less science, more crime, and a great look at the earliest years that got Crichton going – his years working as pulp paperback author John Lange, nicely recovered here by the Hard Case Crime series! The book's a surprisingly hefty read – 384 pages, and graced with a beautiful paperback cover. Book
(Please Note – The spine has a remainder mark.)

Robert GreenfieldLast Sultan – The Life & Times Of Ahmet Ertegun (hardcover) ... Book
Simon & Schuster, 2011. New Copy ... $6.99 30.00
The amazing story of Ahmet Ertegun – the driving force behind Atlantic Records, and a crucial figure in popular music in the 20th Century! Ahmet's story is the stuff of legend – and this book delivers the whole thing in stunning detail – from Ertegun's early years as the child of the Turkish ambassador, to his adolescent love of jazz and blues, to his launching Atlantic with his brother – initially to dominate the field of rhythm and blues, then jazz and soul, then even mainstream rock and roll! The hefty book is over 400 pages in length, and features a handful of black and white images too. Book

Nathan Nedorostek & Anthony PappalardoRadio Silence – A Selected Visual History Of American Hardcore Music ... Book
MTV, 2008. New Copy ... $6.99 29.95
The history of American hardcore – served up in a huge batch of black and white photos, record covers, flyers, and more – spun out in a really beautiful book! The images are all nice and stark – concert shots, band performances, and more – all photos that really get at the full spectrum of the hardcore scene, but never in a way that's gimmicky or touristy at all. Some bits are pulled from treasured collections, some are relics from the past – like gig posters or t-shirts – and the book features hefty comments from all the artists and contributors, too. There's even a great photo-discography at the end – and although the book was put together by MTV, it's got a very rich, non-commercial feel. Book

VariousAfro Beat Airways Vol 2 – Return Flight To Ghana 1974 to 1983 ... LP
Analog Africa (Germany), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $26.99
Amazing sounds from 70s Ghana – a killer collection that really lives up to all the greatness of other collections on the Analogue Africa label! There's a sharpness here right from the start – an approach to funk that's really universal, and shows why collections from a generation like this move way past the context of standard world music modes – and instead unlock a rich version of the world in which music alone can build plenty of bridges – way beyond the context of politics or national boundaries! By that, we mean that any Anglo crate-digger can find plenty to love here – wicked drums, scratchy guitar, riffing Hammond, and monstrous bass that bounces these tunes beautifully from start to finish – sewing together the grooves in a way that will have you forgetting you can't even understand most of the lyrics. And yet, as with other titles on this great label, the music is also well-situated culturally too – thanks to a hefty set of notes and great images – which will give you plenty of visual discovery while you're digging the sounds on the disc. Titles include "Wop Me A Ka" by The African Brothers, "Do Your Own Thing" by De Frank's Band, "Aja Wondo" by Uppers International, "Loose Up Yourself" by Rob, "I Beg" by Tony Sarfo & The Funky Afrobisi, "Arabo" by K Frimpong, "Say Min Sy Soh" by Pierre Antoine & Vis A Vis, "God Is Love" by Complex Soundz, and "Kana Soro" by Los Issufu & His Moslems.

VariousLet No One Judge You – Early Recordings From Iran 1906 to 1933 (4LP set) (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Honest Jons (UK), 1900s/1910s/1920s/1930s. Sealed 4LPs ... $28.99
An amazing portrait of Iran in the years before WWII – pulled from rare 78rpm recordings which are remastered here beautifully, to present some stunning sounds we'd never have heard otherwise! There's a really unique flavor to most of this music – sounds that lie at the crossroads of the east, and which spring out with some surprisingly modern inflections, while still coming across with a very simple, timeless appeal too. Most of the instrumentation is on percussion and regional stringed instruments, and the vocals can be richly expressive – often with inflections and range that far surpass the instrumentation on the discs. As with the other Honest Jons collections of global 78rpm material, the whole thing is beautifully put together – from the sound quality, to the notes, to the very hefty selection of tracks. Titles include work by Iran Od Dowleh Helen, Seyyed Hoseyn Taherzadeh, Akhtar, Parvaneh, Ebrahim, Javad Badi'Zadeh, and many others. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Orchestre VeveVintage Verckys ... CD
Retro Afric (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Totally killing Congolese rumba from the early 70s! Saxophonist and bandleader Verckys Kiamuangana Mateta got his start by contributing grippingly muscular tenor saxophone work with the legendary Franco & OK Jazz during the mid-60s, providing unusual hefty horn work to a style where the guitars typically get the lion' share of the solo space. In 1969, he took the lessons he learned from Franco and started his own band, Orchestre Veve, creating a body of work as good as any of his rivals. American R & B honkers like King Curtis heavily influenced Verckys, but he masterfully adapted this brusque style for the more refined sound of Congolese rumba. While he takes a ton of dynamite solos, there's still a mother lode of sublime guitar playing here, as dazzling lockstep counterpoint keeps the music at a steady boil. Tracks include "Baluti", "Ah Ngai Matinda", "Londende", "Mama Djele", and "Vivita". CD

✨✧ William ParkerCentering – Unreleased Recordings 1976 to 1987 (6CD set) ... CD
No Business (Lithuania), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy 6CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An amazing collection of music from legendary bassist William Parker – 6 CDs' worth of performances, all of them unreleased, packaged together in a limited edition box set with a detailed booklet as well! The scope of the sounds is amazing – almost like finding the full career of a jazz musician in one space – even though it's only a slice of the rich contributions that Parker has made to music over his decades in jazz! A number of the tracks features important large ensembles that push forward ideas from the loft jazz generation – with players who include Daniel Carter on saxes, David S Ware on tenor, Jemeel Moondoc on alto, Charles Tyler on baritone, Roy Campbell and Raphe Malik on trumpets, Billy Bang on violin, and Rashid Bakr and Dennis Charles on drums. Other tracks feature sparer pairings that are especially haunting – duets between Parker's bass and the alto and trumpet of Daniel Carter, a trio with David S Ware on tenor and Dennis Charles on drums, and two long duo tracks with tenorist Charles Gayle! The whole thing's amazing – worth far more in music than its hefty price tag – and a huge discovery throughout! CD

✨✧ Kim GordonPerforming/Guzzling (hardcover) ... Book
Rizzoli, 2010. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Surprisingly wonderful visual work from Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth – a lovely book of oversized color reproductions of her unique style of painting – which usually involves watercolor paints on either newspaper or tissue-like paper! The result is these weird, watery sort of images with colors shimmering softly next to each other, and interacting with the paper as well – all with an aesthetic that is quite different from Kim's music. The book is oversized, full color, hardcover, and hefty! Book

✨✧ Ugly ThingsIssue 34 – Fall/Winter 2012 ... Magazine
Ugly Things, 2012. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the heaviest magazines on music you'll ever buy – not just for the hefty page count, but for the content as well! Articles are great – very interesting, in-depth tales of the 60s/70s underground – with features on The Haunted, The Others, The Bees, The Spike-Drivers, Jenny & The Rascals, Blue Aces, and others – and cool little features on unusual sounds from unusual scenes too! This time around, Ugly Things clocks in at almost 200 pages – already a lot in itself, but when you consider that the publication's got a lot less ads than most, and uses relatively small type – you'll realize you're getting quite a deal! Loads of black and white photos and images – and a heck of a great read. Magazine

✨✧ VariousI Heard The Angels Singing – Electrifying Black Gospel From The Nashboro Label 1951 to 1983 (4CD set) ... CD
Nashboro/Tompkins Square, 1950s/1960s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
An incredible collection of gospel material from the Nashboro label – easily one of the most important American companies to document the rise and changes in gospel during the postwar years – but one that's never been given a showcase like this before! The folks at Tompkins Square have always done wonderful work with smaller sources and more individual personalities – but they really knock it out of the park with this hefty dig through the Nashboro catalog – a treasure trove of 80 rare tracks that come mostly from the crucial 50s and 60s years of the label, supported with detailed liner notes that really get at the quality of the music! Nashboro never tried to water things down at all – and, if anything, they always had an ear for letting the most personal message in the music come forth – especially with the smaller group and individual recordings on the set. We'll bet you've not got most of this work in your collection – and titles include tunes by Brother Joe May, The Spiritual Five, Sister Emma Tucker, Bonita Cantrell, Maggie Ingram, Harmonizing Five, The CBS Trumpeters, Southern Echoes, Travelin Echoes, Sullivan Pugh, The Radio Four, Swanee Quartet, Rock Island Singers, Sister Lucille Barbee, and many many others. Great LP-sized package, too! CD
