L'AltraDifferent Days ... LP
Hefty, 2005. Near Mint- 2LP ... $9.99
A sweet album's worth of melancholy electronic pop from L'Altra! They've been knocking around for several years, and land on Chicago's Hefty Records for this set quite appropriately, as vocalist Lindsay Anderson has been appearing here-and-there in a guest capacity on the best Hefty releases over the past couple of years. She and L'Altra's other core half, Joseph Costa take a much more pronounced approach to songcraft than some of other more experimental artists on Hefty, with lots of quiet, but emotionally intense moments given just enough of an avant feel. Telefon Tel Aviv's Josh Eustis handled the production, scaling back Telefon's tendency towards wildly veering soundscapes very well for a straighter pop record. Tracks include "Sleepless Night", "It Follows Me Around", "Better Than Bleeding", "Bring On Happiness", "So Surprise", "Mail Bomb", "Morning Disaster" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Savath & SavalasRolls & Waves EP ... CD
Hefty, 1999. Used ... $2.99
A early atmospheric effort by Prefuse 73's alter ego. Instruments get mangled softly and gently by machines. The title is very fitting, and it sounds great in headphones, waiting patiently for your airplane to depart. There's guest spots on here by John Herndon and Tim Delaney. Nice. Tracks include "Rolls & Waves Of Ignorance", "Paths In Soft Focus", "Folk Song For Cello", "Decataur Queen", and "Rolls & Waves Of Acknowledgement". CD

Russ Bestley & Alex OggArt Of Punk – The Illustrated History Of Punk Rock Design (hardcover) ... Book
Voyageur, 2012. New Copy ... $10.99 40.00
The young Johnny Rotten would have winced at the idea of a punk rock art book – but given the underground nature of the movement in its classic years, and the countless lost relics from the scene, we're more than happy to treasure this hefty, full color volume! The book is a treasure trove of materials – like getting a peek at the collection of one of your friends who's ultra-cool, but will never let you get close to his records – and the book is filled with hundreds and hundreds of full color images of 45 sleeves, album covers, and even flyers and gig posters too – not just from the UK and US, but the full global scene as well. Almost all the material is from the classic late 70s/early 80s years – and even if you've got one hell of a record collection, there's plenty more great stuff here too – including some especially great images of posters for local gigs. The book offers up full details on each image – source, artist, and more – and the whole thing is 224 pages, full color, and nicely oversized. Book

Michael Crichton (writing as John Lange)Venom Business ... Book
Hard Case Crime, 1970. New Copy ... $2.99 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.)

MarvelettesForever More – The Complete Motown Albums Vol 2 (Marvelettes/Sophisticated Soul/In Full Bloom/Return Of The Marvelettes/bonus tracks) (4CDs ... CD
Motown/Hip-O Select, Mid 60s. Used 4CD ... $49.99
A hefty helping of The Marvelettes – a set that not only shows why the trio was one of Motown's best groups of the 60s, but which also unearths a wealth of previously-unissued material too! The core of the package are a quartet of sublime albums by the girls – The Marvelettes, Sophisticated Soul, In Full Bloom, and The Return Of The Marvelettes – great "second chapter" work that shows the trio really stretching out in the best Motown modes of the mid 60s – hitting grooves that complicate things nicely from the early days, with vocals that are even tighter than before, yet still packed with a hell of a lot of soul as well! Production is wonderful – equally tight, yet never too polished – and the set not only features all tracks from the albums, but also 10 more bonus tracks, and additional full mono LP versions of The Marvelettes and Sophisticated soul – both quite rare! And, if that's not enough, CD 4 features 24 previously-unissued tracks – all Motown vault material from the 60s, with more than enough tracks to make up two more full records by the girls – a huge discovery in 60s soul music, and essential listening, even if you've got their records on vinyl. Unreleased titles include "Johnny Do Right", "Queen Of The Fools", "From Now On", "Three Months", "My Baby Won't Come Back", "Dance A While Cry A While", "I Can't Wait Till Summer Comes", "Why'd You Do It", "Change Of Heart", and "The Train That's Bringing My Baby". 4CDs, 119 tracks, and wonderful packaging too!

Nathan Nedorostek & Anthony PappalardoRadio Silence – A Selected Visual History Of American Hardcore Music ... Book
MTV, 2008. New Copy ... $3.99 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

Lester YoungLester Young Memorial Album (Epic 2LP) ... LP
Epic, Late 30s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $11.99
Some of Lester Young's first great moments of prominence – his late 30s recordings with the Count Basie Band, offered here in a well-done collection issued as a memorial after his death in 1959! The sets are all led by Basie, but most feature strong saxophone lead by Young – solos that helped define the tenor sax sound of a generation, nestled in alongside other top-shelf players who include Buddy Tate on tenor, Freddie Green on guitar, and Harry Edison and Buck Clayton on trumpets. The set features a hefty 24 tracks in all – and titles include "Broadway", "Blow Top", "Dickie's Dream", "Clap Hands Here Comes Charlie", "Pound Cake", "Rock A Bye Basie", "Riff Interlude", "Easy Does It", "Jump For Me", "Hollywood Jump", "Tickle Toe", "12th Street Rag", "I Left My Baby", and "Shoe Shine Boy".

Orchestre VeveVintage Verckys ... CD
Retro Afric (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
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

Simon & Schuster, 2011. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Windy City, Sidney Joe Qualls, Ebony Funky RhythmSoul's Kinda Town – Chi Sound Soul Survey 1976-1982 ... CD
West Side (UK), Mid 70s-Early 80s. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great little compilation of obscure soul from Chicago – featuring some of the lesser-known (but excellent) work on the Chi-Sound label. The set features 2 CDs worth of work – with a pretty hefty chunk of material for each group included in the project. One of the highlights of the package is some excellent work by Windy City – an obscure vocal group that was actually one of Chicago's best male soul acts during the 70s, but who never got their due. Windy City sing "Windy City Theme", "Win Or Lose", "Fool Or Your Man", "I Got Mine", "I Still Love You", "Somethin's Missin", and their hit "Let Me Ride". Ebony Rhythm Funk Campaign check in with "Understanding", "Where You Lead", "Giving Me Less Love", and "You Got Me Rushin". Sidney Joe Qualls sings some great mellow soul on the tracks "I Don't Do This", "Where Have You Been", "I'll Run To Your Side", "Let The Woman Show", and "I Could Be So Good For You". Manchild do "Joy", "Our Message", "One Tender Moment", and "These Are The Things That Are Special To Me". The set's rounded off by 2 tracks from Magnum Force – "Share My Love" and "Come Fly Away With Me" – plus "Windy City Theme" done as a funky instrumental by "The Chi-Sound Orchestra". CD

✨✧ VariousAfro Beat Airways Vol 2 – Return Flight To Ghana 1974 to 1983 ... LP
Analog Africa (Germany), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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.

✨✧ William ParkerCentering – Unreleased Recordings 1976 to 1987 (6CD set) ... CD
No Business (Lithuania), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy 6CD ... 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
(Hand numbered, limited edition of 1000.)
