Phil RanelinTime Is Now! ... CD
Tribe/Hefty, 1974. Used ... $9.99
A lost classic from the legendary Tribe Records label of Detroit – home to some of the most groundbreaking soul jazz of the early 70s! This set is one of the more "out" sessions on the legendary Tribe label from Detroit – and one that features many of the label's great players, like Wendell Harrison, Marcus Belgrave, Charles Moore, and Ranelin himself. The tracks are long and progressive, with distinct political overtones that work well with the avant playing of the set. Titles include "Black Destiny", "Time Is Running Out", "He The One We All Knew", and "The Time Is Now For A Change". Plus, this reissue also features 3 previously unissued bonus tracks – "He The One We All Knew (extended)", "Time Is Running Out (extended)", and "The Time Now Is For Change (outtake)". CD

✨✧ Philip Cohran & The Artistic Heritage EnsembleOn The Beach (aka Philip Cohran & The Artistic Heritage Ensemble) ... LP
Aestuarium/Hefty, Late 60s. Used (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Mindblowing – and a landmark recording that crosses all boundaries in the Chicago music scene of the late 60s! Philip Cohran was a visionary musician who'd played with Sun Ra during the 60s, but who left Ra to forge his own musical vision by the middle part of the decade. The Artistic Heritage ensemble was a crucially important group in Chicago – one that drew players from both the soul and jazz scenes, with a wealth of talents that later went onto work with groups like Earth Wind & Fire, The Pharoahs, Ra's Arkestra, and other ensembles. Talents on this set alone include players like Charles Handy, Don Myrick, Aaron Dodd, Henry Gibson, and Louis Satterfield – not to mention Cohran, who plays cornet (as he did with Sun Ra), plus two groovy instruments of his own invention: the violin uke and the great Frankiphone, a sort of electric thumb piano whose use on these recordings pre-dated the very famous Kalimba sound that Earth Wind & Fire would use to great success during the 70s. The album includes the driving conga funk track "Unity", the singing soulful track "The Minstrel", the incredibly haunting "On The Beach", and the track "Motherhood", which has a strong Abbey Lincoln type of feel. The whole thing's a beautiful batch of spiritual jazzy tracks with a good groove – and a perfect blend of soul and spirit, jazz and righteousness! Beautifully packaged, too! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Phil RanelinVibes From The Tribe ... CD
Tribe/Hefty, 1976. Used ... Out Of Stock
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)".

✨✧ VariousLet No One Judge You – Early Recordings From Iran 1906 to 1933 ... CD
Honest Jons (UK), 1900s/1910s/1920s/1930s. New Copy 2 CD Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
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. CD

Fabio FrizziSuperfantagenio (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Cinevox/Digitmovies (Italy), 1986. Used ... $6.99
Bud Spencer plays a hefty, shaggy genie in this mid 80s Italian comedy – and Fabio Frizzi serves up a pretty great score to match that odd performance! The music is a mix of 80s film modes and exotic themes – all put together with a very whimsical feel overall, with instrumentation that blends keyboards and strings, and a few occasional beats. Deodato wrote the title theme – "The Genie" – an 80s groove-styled number with some soulful chorus vocals – and other tunes include "Il Genio Appare", "Ommaggio A Scott", "Swing Classic", "Kid Lger", "Cinque Elicotteri", and "Un Lungo Abbraccio". CD features 2 bonus tracks from the film Vieni Avanti Cretino! CD

Drew Hardin & The Editors Of Hot Rod MagazineHot Rod Magazine – All The Covers (hardcover) ... Book
Motorbooks, 2010. New Copy ... $8.99 35.00
A hefty look at Hot Rod magazine – from the time the publication started in the postwar years, through its big time in the 60s, to its surprisingly durable run up to more recent years too! The book promises all the covers of all the issues through that run – and it definitely delivers that, but adds in way more than just a simple pastiche of cover art – with year-by-year details on the magazine, and a manner of presentation that makes things very lively – through other image, and a focus on some of the ultra-cool images from the classic years. 255 pages, hardcover, and heavy and glossy throughout!

Liz McQuiston; Germain Greer, forwardSuffragettes To She Devils – Women's Liberation & Beyond (hardcover) ... Book
Phaidon Press, 1997. New Copy ... $9.99 59.95
The history of women's rights in the 20th Century – presented here in a beautiful art book format that's filled with hundreds of stunning images throughout! The volume traces the evolution of different strands of struggle and victory in the past 100 years – and uses an amazing array of visual material that came from these movements – posters, flyers, magazines, billboards, photos, propaganda, and lots lots more – all laid out in full color throughout, and supported with a huge amount of writing as well. German Greer provides the introduction, but author Liz McQuiston's the real star of the show here – doing a mindblowing job of representing the ongoing battle for political freedoms and equality, and showcasing a range of feminist heroes we never would have discovered otherwise. Book is a hefty 240 pages, hardcover, oversized, and filled with full color images throughout. Book

Louise SimonsonDC Comics Covergirls (hardcover) ... Book
Chartwell Books, 2007. New Copy ... $18.99 24.99
The world of comics might seem to be a male-dominated one at times – but DC Comics has more than made up for that over the years – by giving us powerful characters like Wonder Woman, Power Girl, Raven, Big Barda, Catwoman, Lois Lane, and many others – all featured here in a stunning full-color book, filled with vintage images from the comic pages! The book's got a bit of history and other context, but reads more like an artbook overall – with loads of lavish reproductions of classic comic covers, plus other inside artwork, some unusual images, and lots more greatness too. The book was put together by Louise Simonson – herself a bit of a comic hero, given her decades of work as a writer and editor – and the whole thing is 208 pages, hefty, oversize, and full color!

Cultures Of Soul, 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP ... $25.99 28.98
Way more than just a random jazz compilation – and instead a set that comes with a hefty book about the Boston jazz underground in the 70s – almost 80 pages in length, complete with images of records, vintage photos, and lots of notes on this under-documented scene! And while Boston's always been something of a hotbed of jazz activity – thanks to the younger students who hit the city to study at Berklee and other schools – this material represents a much deeper, more spiritual current of jazz – work that's in the same territory of the AACM or loft jazz scenes of the period, but also with a current of freewheeling electric material too! At this price, the whole thing would already be great as a collection of rare spiritual jazz, but with the book and overall package it's a hell of a deal – packed with musical goodness on cuts that include "Sketch (parts 1 & 2)" and "Road Through The Wall (parts 2 & 3)" by Thing, "For Margot" and "Tarot The Moon" by Mark Harvey Group, "The Creator Is So Far Out" and "Egypt" by Phil Musra Group, "9 Degrees Black Women Liberation" by Worlds, "Year Of The Ear Herds & Hoards" by Baird Hersey with Dave Liebman, and "Play Sleep" by Stanton Davis' Ghetto Mysticism.

Voyageur, 2014. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautiful book on the history of pizza in America – one that's filled with countless photos and other images – and a wealth of knowledge on the ways that the pie has transformed around the US! The book's an especially valuable look at the many different regional styles – with well-illustrated chapters on New Haven, Detroit, New York St Louis, California, Deep Dish, and Sicilian styles – plus detailed looks at tomatoes, crust, and cheese – and even a survey of the bigger chains. The whole thing's surprisingly hefty – not just a fluff book on the format, but a read that's every bit as great as the pictures! Hardcover, full color, and 175 pages. Book

✨✧ Eric BradleyMantiques – A Manly Guide To Cool Stuff (hardcover) ... Book
Krause, 2014. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Remember when guys used to be butch? Remember when they weren't fussing over their hair, their skin care, or aromas – and instead just needed a handful of objects to state their identity! Those objects took on different categories – a cool car, a nice watch, hunting togs, or drinking gear – all of which are covered here in a full color book that's also partly a price guide too! The book divides its subjects into different categories – with chapters on pulp art, surfing collectibles, entertainment memorabilia, rare tools, vintage knives, and even early computers – in a hefty book with lots of full color images, and text on each item represented. We're not endorsing the prices, which are a bit random – but the book is a beautiful document of "guy stuff" from years gone by – when a dude was a dude, and didn't need to hideout in a man cave with his treasures. 176 pages, hardcover, full color.

✨✧ Wlodzimierz Korcz07 Zglos Sie ... CD
GAD (Poland), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Totally groovy sounds from a top-level Polish cop show in the 70s – one that certainly didn't make it to our screens back in the day, but which definitely had a soundtrack to match some of the best American programs of the time! In fact, the style here is maybe more late 60s/early 70s than the actual dates might imply – with lots of elements that you'd hear in work from Lalo Schifrin, Quincy Jones, and some of their contemporaries – including lots of surprisingly strong jazz elements, mixed in with the fuller orchestrations, funky rhythms, and more electric moments! There's a bit of wordless vocalization at times – but most cuts here are instrumental, and plenty darn great throughout – a real discovery to our American ears – even though the show was one of the biggest Polish TV programs at the time. The CD features a whopping 35 tracks in all, with hefty notes in both Polish and English – and the whole thing may well be one of the grooviest Gad Records projects to date! CD

Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
A tremendous overview of the UK hard rock years at the end of the 60s and start of the 70s – a time when some of the biggest groups of the coming decade would move to the forefront, while so many others who never got their due still hit an equally great groove! This set's a strong nod to the legion of excellent British acts that never soared to the heights of Led Zeppelin or Black Sabbath – but shared a similar ability to push older blues rock and psych modes into much heavier territory – a fiercely dark groove that set the stage for so much music making in decades to come! You're bound to know a few names here, but the set also overflows with lots more work that really illuminates the period – a massive 48 tracks on 3CDs, complete with a hefty booklet of notes that will take you on one mad musical journey. Titles include "My Son's Alive" by Crushed Butter, "All In Your Mind" by Stray, "Bogeyman" by Writing On The Wall, "Love In The Rain" by Edgar Broughton Band, "Jehovah" by The Velvet Frogs, "Flash" by Bare Soul, "Ascension Day" by Third World War, "Trying To Find My Way Back Home" by Morning After, "Yellow Cave Woman" by Velvett Fogg, "Too Old" by Andromeda, "Occult" by The Kult, "Twisted Trip Woman" by Sweet Slag, "Rock My Soul" by Charge, "Cherry Red" by The Groundhogs, "Apocalypse" by Barnabus, "Falling" by The Iron Maiden, and lots lots more!

✨✧ David RitzRespect – The Life Of Aretha Franklin (hardcover) ... Book
Little Brown, 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
David Ritz has a mighty long pedigree when it comes to music writing – including some songwriting credits, too – and he's definitely someone we can trust to take on the life and music of the great Aretha Franklin in this mighty hefty book! The volume goes way past the usual trappings of a star biography – and instead digs deep, both into Aretha's persona, and the larger world of music in which she was situated – locating both those things that made her so unique and important, and those personal factors that shaped her sounds from behind the scenes during her long years of recording and performance. Ritz already did a great job with his book on Marvin Gaye, but he may well be even greater here – in a heavy volume that runs for over 500 pages, and which includes a section of photographs too. Book
