Wlodzimierz Korcz07 Zglos Sie ... CD
GAD (Poland), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $16.99
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

Ramsey Lewis TrioSwingin ... LP
Argo, 1956. Sealed ... $9.99
One of the first ever albums by the Ramsey Lewis Trio – featuring an assortment of lively tracks with a touch of jazz-based humor, the kind that were winning them huge audiences in Chicago at the time! With Eldee Young and Redd Holt to back him up, Ramsey's got plenty of pyrotechnics in tow – which means that he does a great job on versions of familiar tunes like "Carmen", "I'll Remember April", and "Bi Mir Bist Du Shon" – as well as great originals like "Fantasia For Drums", "Dee's New Blues", and "Tres". LP, Vinyl record album
(Appears to be a 60s stereo pressing, hefty with paste-on cover.)

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!

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

David RitzRespect – The Life Of Aretha Franklin (hardcover) ... Book
Little Brown, 2014. New Copy ... $8.99 30.00
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

VariousBoston Creative Jazz Scene – 1970 to 1983 (2LP box set with book) ... LP
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.

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 ... $18.99
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. CD

✨✧ VariousI'm A Freak Baby – A Journey Through The British Heavy Psych & Hard Rock Underground Scene 1968 to 1972 (3CD set) ... CD
Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 3CD ... Just Sold Out!
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!

✨✧ A Kostis (Constantinos Kostas Bezos)Jail's A Fine School ... LP
Mississippi, Early 30s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Beautifully folksy work from pre-war Greece – a series of 78s from Constantinos Bezos, not only a musician, but also a journalist and actor too – and reportedly one with a very political wit! That wit comes through in the title of the collection – but might not in the lyrics to all the tunes, unless you understand Greek – but that's more than OK, because the guitar work is equally wonderful – often on this steel-stringed version that has a very resonant quality, and which rings out in these cyclical ways that are really beautiful – almost prefacing a Robbie Basho sort of style, and played in ways that perhaps are linked to other Greek stringed instruments. The package features a very hefty booklet of notes – and the translations of the song titles get at the spirit of the record – and include "A School Was Burned", "Yannis The Hash Smoker", "I Became Thin", "You Were Barefoot", and "The Jail's A Fine School".

✨✧ William ParkerCentering – Unreleased Recordings 1976 to 1987 (6CD set) ... CD
No Business (Lithuania), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy 6 CDs ... 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

✨✧ 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 ... 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
