Bubble PuppyGathering Of Promises ... LP
International Artists, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
The lone album from the Bubble Puppy – a monumental effort of late 60s hard grooving psychedelia – and one of very best albums to come out of the original Texas psych scene! A couple of the Pup's labelmates at United Artists get a lot of revelry all these years later, and rightfully so – who would argue the importance of The Red Krayola and 13th Floor Elevators – but Bubbly Puppy deserve to be on that top shelf, too. The sound is tight and hard hitting, with trippy lyricism and groovy group harmonies, while the guitars range from cathartic fuzz to some surprisingly pretty melodicism. Not as far out as some of their peers, but the groove is absolutely killer. Titles include the benchmark single "Hot Smoke And Sasafrass", plus "Todd's Tune", "I've Got To Reach You", "Lonely", "Hurry Sundown", "Elizabeth", "It's Safe To Say", "Beginning" and much more.

Golden DawnPower Plant ... LP
International Artists, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
One of the grooviest albums on the legendary International Artists label – a set that's as psychedelic and experimental as most of the others in the imprint, but also pretty darn tuneful as well! Golden Dawn have a nicely stretched-out approach to their music – one that lets the songs build up slowly, then really pack a punch as their catchier hooks come into play. There's a bit of a late 60s SF rock quality to the record – especially when the vocals get a bit wild – and the guitars ring out nicely with a great rough-edged sound. Titles include "Starvation", "This Way Please", "Evolution", "My Time", "A Nice Surprise", "Tell Me Why", "Reaching Out To You", and "Seeing Is Believing". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Red CrayolaParable Of Arable Land ... LP
International Artists, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Classic first album of avant noise and psych from the Texas underground, featuring seminal early work by Mayo Thompson, and a mind-blasting set of tracks that mixes straight songs with the group's trademark "free form freak outs". Essential to anyone with even the slightest affinity for the true psychedelic 60s – and especially so for true lovers of the influential psych forbears! Titles of the songs include "Hurricane Fighter Plane", "Transparent Radition" (an all-time classic), "War Sucks", "Former Reflections Enduring Doubt", and "Pink Stainless Tail" – and each track is separated by a freakout!

✨✧ 13th Floor ElevatorsBull Of The Woods (plus bonus album) ... CD
International Artists/Snapper (UK), 1969. Used 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The sublime fourth album from 13th Floor Elevators – all freaky, fuzzy, and fantastic – the kind of set that so many others tried to copy over the years – but could never deliver with this sort of grit! The record's got a perfect balance of heady guitars and straight-ahead rhythms – all held together with the kind of simple studio trickery that makes so many International Artist records of this vintage so great – and virtually the blueprint for indie psych at the time! Titles include "Scarlet & Gold", "Street Song", "Dr Doom", "With You", "Till Then", "Never Another", and "Down By The River". Limited 2CD set also features the "lost" third album from the group – A Love That's Sound – presented here as a bonus CD, with the cuts "Livin On", "It's You", "Never Another", "Dr Doom", "Moon Song", "Sweet Surprise", and "Wait For My Love" – some of which were on the Bull set – but are here in different, earlier versions. Comes in a hardcover book-like package, with full notes and color photos in the middle. CD

✨✧ 13th Floor ElevatorsEaster Everywhere ... LP
International Artists/Get Back (Italy), 1967. Used (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Raw early genius from the 13th Floor Elevators – cut back at a time when the Texas combo were one of the hippest things going in the late 60s American underground! There's lots of sounds here that other cats would copy over the decades – but the record has a gritty brilliance that's way better than any of its many imitators – that kind of unique burst of new ideas and young energy that made psych so wonderful when it first emerged in remarkable moments like this! Roky Erickson is wonderful – and the record will definitely illustrate his genius way better than any later efforts to bear his own name in the lead – and the production is just the right blend of studio tricks and homegrown oddness to make the whole thing electrified throughout. Tracks include "Slip Inside This House", "Slide Machine", "Dust", "Earthquake", "Levitation", "Postures", "Baby Blue", and "Nobody To Love". LP, Vinyl record album

Miles Davis & Tadd DameronMiles Davis/Tadd Dameron Quintet In Paris Festival International De Jazz May 1949 ... CD
Columbia/Sony (Japan), 1949. Used ... $4.99
A rare early side of Miles Davis – recorded in postwar Paris in the company of Tadd Dameron! The group's a quintet – with Miles on trumpet and Tadd on piano – and although the overall vibe certainly shows a lot of bop generation spirit, there's also a strong indication of the deeper ideas that were already becoming a part of both artists' music. The group features some excellent work on tenor from James Moody – plus bass from Barney Spieler and drums from Kenny Clarke. Tunes include a fair bit of familiar numbers from the Charlie Parker camp – and titles include "Rifftide", "Good Bait", "Don't Blame Me", "Lady Bird", "Wah Hoo", "Allen's Alley", "Embraceable You", "Ornithology" and "All The Things You Are".

Alton EllisSoul Train Is Coming ... LP
Rockashacka (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $24.99
One of the more obscure sides of work from the legendary Alton Ellis – but one of the best as well! The set features some cuts issued by Alton on his own Ellis label – and many of the numbers here feature the singer acting as a producer too – a surprisingly strong side of his talents, as he's able to craft just the right sort of laidback rocksteady grooves for his wonderfully soulful voice! Alton never broke as big on an international scale as artists like Peter Tosh or Jimmy Cliff – but hearing these tracks, you'll definitely feel the way in which the paths Ellis took were clearly roads that allowed much bigger reggae grown in years to come! Titles include "My Time Is The Right Time", "I Love You Girl", "Again". "Dedication", "Baby Talk", "Past Time", "Soul Train Is Coming", "Bam Bye", "If I Had The Right", and "Big News".

Light In The Attic, Late 60s/Early 70s. Sealed 8LP, 4CD, DVD ... $129.99
Incredible work from the legendary Lee Hazlewood – music and images that blow away his previous generation of creation for MGM, Mercury, and Warner Brothers – served up here in a package that really captures all the genius of Hazlewood during these amazing years! The package features this incredible material on 8LPs and 4CDs, 107 tracks of music on each format – with every single album track, 45 cut, and unreleased masters that Lee Hazlewood recorded for his own LHI imprint (including the full albums Cowboy In Sweden, Cowboy & The Lady, and Requiem For An Almost Lady) – plus all the key tracks from LHI artists like International Submarine Band, Sanford Clark, Honey LTD, Lynn Castle, Hamilton Streetcar, and many others – including 14 unreleased tracks. Then, you also get this incredible 172 page hardcover book – as big as a giant LP box, with rare photos, liner notes, history, Lee Hazelwood timeline, and lots lots more.

JazzanovaIn Between ... CD
Compost/Ropeadope, 2002. Used ... $5.99
The first-ever full length album from Jazzanova – and an instant classic that's been well worth the wait! For years, the group have turned out some of the most exciting singles and remixes on the international groove scene – and during all that time, they've been secretly storing away new ideas and musical thoughts for this groundbreaking debut album. The set's completely mindblowing – head and shoulders above anything else they've ever done, with a wealth of ideas and styles that we never thought them capable of. Working with a host of guest artists that include Vikter Duplaix, Capital A, Ursula Rucker, Rob Gallagher, Valerie Etienne, Dave Friedman, Doug Hammond, and others, they move far past their simple role as remix producers, and express a bold new vision – a 21st Century blend of jazz, soul, beats, and life that's impossibly hard to describe in a few short sentences. A stunner from the get-go – and shoulder-to-shoulder filled with great tracks! Titles include "No Use", "LOVE & You & I", "Fade Out", "Hanazono", "Mwela Mwela", "Keep Falling", "Cyclic", "Another New Day", "Place In Between", "Soon", "Sub Atlantic", "Glow & Glare", "Takes You Back (dub)", and "Wasted Time".

Patti LabelleI'm In Love Again (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Philadelphia International/FTG, 1983. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98
A seminal album from the great Patti Labelle – a set that allowed the singer to mature strongly and find her own voice away from the funky, rockish style of Labelle – this sophisticated style that marked a whole new level of the singer's career! The Philly International label turned out to be a perfect setting for Patti – as they too were also growing past some of their earlier styles – moving past the chart soul of the 70s, and some of their bigger disco hits – and finding just the right place to allow their artists to keep on growing strongly over the years. The album's an all-adult affair – no clunky commercial moments at all, and instead this great blend of jazzy currents and sophisticated soul – all handled with the excellent second generation Philly International approach! Titles include "I'm In Love Again", "Love Lives", "Love Need & Want You", "I'll Never Never Give You Up", "If Only You Knew", "Body Language", and "When Am I Gonna Find True Love". CD features bonus tracks – 7" versions of "I'm In Love Again", "If Only You Knew", "I'll Never Never Give You Up", and "If You Only Knew". CD

Mighty Clouds Of JoyIt's Time ... CD
ABC/Safety Zone, 1974. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
A landmark blend of gospel spirit and 70s soul – and one of the greatest moments ever from The Mighty Clouds Of Joy! Like so many other soul artists before them, these guys have voices that are steeped in the best traditions of gospel – but rather than giving up their roots and going secular, they just cut this set with the best Philly soul help of the time – arrangements from Wade Marcus, and a smoking Sigma Sound lineup that includes work from Norman Harris, Vince Montana, Bobby Eli, Ronnie Baker, and Earl Young – all of whom give the record the vibe of the best Philly International material from the time! Dave Crawford produced, but the set almost feels more Gamble & Huff than anything else – as the quintet's vocals really soar on tracks that include "Stoned World", "Time", "Mighty Cloud Of Joy", "The Master Plan", and "Heart Full Of Love".

Teddy PendergrassDuets – Love & Soul ... CD
Goldenlane, 2015. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
Teddy Pendergrass recreates his greatest songs of the 70s and 80s – served up here in duet formations with a host of classic soul artists! The posthumous project features vocals recorded by Teddy sometime in the past decade or so, mixed with additional leads from the guest singers – who fit in nicely to the backings, which mostly strive to recreate the classic Teddy P vibe from the Philly International years. The project comes off better than expected, although it's something of a change to hear shared lyrics on songs that we've always come to identify with Pendergrass in the lead. Titles include "Come Go With Me" with Martha Reeves, "Turn Off The Lights" by Linda Clifford, "Close The Door" with Eric Gales, "It Don't Hurt Now" with Shuggie Otis & The Stylistics, "Love TKO" with Angie Stone, "Only You" with Bonnie Pointer, "And If I Had" with Rose Royce, "The Whole Town's Laughing At Me" with Maxi Priest, and "When Somebody Loves You Back" with Ohio Players.

Mary WellsIn & Out Of Love (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Epic/Reel Music, 1981. New Copy ... $14.99
Mary Wells has come a long way from Motown by the time of this sweet early 80s set – really changing up her style to go for a mature, sophisticated groove – that best side of modern soul at the time, put together with superb production by the great Greg Perry! The sound is warm, and plenty darn groovy – a mode that's almost in the same style that some of the hippest Philly International artists were hitting at the same point – really refining their sound, but still holding onto the best soulful elements of years before! But there's still a nice Detroit legacy going on too – that undercurrent of Motown togetherness that you might find in later work by Lamont Dozier – no surprise, since McKinley Jackson's helping Perry arrange the rhythms on the record. Titles include the great groover "These Arms", plus "Spend The Nights With Me", "You Make Me Feel So Good Inside", "Gigolo", "I'm Changing My Ways", and "I'm Not The One". Beautiful Reel Music reissue, too – loads of detailed notes – and bonus tracks that include 12" versions of "Gigolo" and "These Arms". CD

✨✧ VariousDouble Shot Of Soul – Funky Los Angeles Soul From The Vaults Of The Double Shot & Whiz Labels 1967 – 70 ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $14.99
Lost soul from a massively overlooked source – the mighty LA indie Double Shot Records, best known for their fuzzy rock classics, but also a hotbed of tripped-out soul! Given that Double Shot's 2 biggest artists of the late 60s were Count Five ("Psychotic Reaction") and Brenton Wood ("Oogum Boogum Song"), you can imagine that the label would be equally well suited to handle mod 60s guitars and sweet soul vocals – and on most of the tracks on this set, you'll be hearing them at the same time! The set's a really massive batch of tunes – a wonderful discovery to our ears, as we'd only ever heard the odd rare single on the label, and had no idea that there was so much great work – nor that it would sound so great! The CD features a total of 26 tracks in all, pulled from the Double Shot singles of the late 60s – with tracks that include "Push Me Baby" and "Jelly" by The Bagdads, "What Is Soul" and "The International Love Song" by The Real Thing, "Four Piece Funky Nitty Gritty Junky Band" and "Everybody's Got A Hang Up" by Bobby Freeman, "Gotta Keep Talkin" and "Coming In Out Of The Rain" by Maurice Rodgers, "The Neck" and "Trouble" by Kent & The Candidates, "Sugar Sugar" by Shirley, and "Trouble" by Foxy.

VariousGussie Clarke – From The Foundation (180 gram pressing) ... LP
VP, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP ... $15.99 24.99
Classic work from Jamaican producer Gussie Clarke – a talent who's still going strong after changing the face of reggae for decades – starting out with the flurry of work featured on this set! Clarke's productions were already bubbling under in the early 70s, but definitely came into their own during the roots generation – a stretch that saw Gussie's work in the studio hit great fame on UK shores, and reach a fairly bit international audience here too. Clare's mode is an easygoing one – still with some of the emphasis on bottom sounds that was prevalent in Jamaican music during the period, but also maybe more of a spontaneous presentation of the artists too – as if Gussie was stepping back a few steps, at least in comparison to other Jamaican producers. As the 80s moved on, Clarke also helped lay the groundwork for some of the new sounds of the digital generation – evolving his style a bit, but still allowing the artists the main focus. The result is some excellent work by a range of key talents – including a few variations on some of Clark's bigger cuts – all wrapped up in one overstuffed package! Titles include "Pride & Ambition" by Leroy Smart, "The King & The Pauper" by I Roy, "Loving Pauper" by Gregory Isaacs, "The Higher The Mountain" by U Roy & Big Youth, "To The Foundation" by Dennis Brown & Lennie Hibbert, "Party Time" by Lenny Hibbert, "Pass The Kouchie" by The Mighty Diamonds, "Raggamuffin" by Freddie McGregor & Dennis Brown, and "Pirates' Anthem" by Home T, Cocoa Tea, & Shabba Ranks – and three versions of "Strickly Rockers" – by Augustus Pablo, Big Youth, and both of them together!

One of the hippest of the International Song Festival albums – thanks to a great selection of work from some of Odeon's best artists of the time! As with others in this series, the album is recorded live – as part of the grand Brazilian tradition of public performance that gave many of its most important artists key initial exposure. Artists here are a good blend of up-and-comers and stars – and nearly all of them are in the best Blue Brazil mode, even in this live setting! Titles include "Juliana" by Antonio Adolfo & A Brazuca, "Cantiga Por Luciana" by Eva, "Razao De Paz Para Nao Cantar" by Quarteto Forma, "Minha Mariza" by Golden Boys, "O Tempo E O Vento" by Beth Carvalho, "Beijo Sideral" by Marcos Valle, and "Flor Manequim Depois Mulher" by Taiguara.

Do Right (Canada), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $9.99
A much-needed look at a scene that's hardly ever gotten its due – and a wealth of beautiful jazz tracks from our brothers to the north! Canada's always done a better job of supporting its artists with national assistance than the US – so it's no surprise that some of the best jazz recordings of the Canadian scene come from the archives of it's state-owned broadcasting company – a key force in supporting great music of all types, but especially important here when it comes to jazz! The work on the set is all hand-picked by John Kong – of both the Do Right label, and the international groove underground – and it's all chosen with an ear towards the kind of older jazz tracks that are playing big on the international scene these days. Think of the inspiration for Schema, or the jazz tracks selected by Gilles Peterson, and you'll have a great idea of the grooves on this set! Titles include "Star Of India" by Electric Ninja Group, "Saphir" by Nick Ayoub, "Ready Or Not" by Kathryn Moses, "Lawrence Of Arabia" by Fred Stone, "Voices" by Al Michalek Quartet, "Consuelo" by Pierre Nadeau Trio, "The Family" by Billy Robinson, and "Soya" by Pierre Leduc.

Ubuntu (Netherlands), Early 60s. New Copy ... $18.99
Maybe our favorite volume so far in this excellent series – a set that focuses on early 60s work from South Africa, with a vibe that really showcases that great sound that would soon explode globally – as artists like Hugh Masekela and Miriam Makeba got wider exposure! Yet the music here is hardly as commercial as sounds from those two – as the overall production and presentation is nice and rootsy – lively rhythms topped with jazzy instrumentation and these especially wonderful vocals that dip, turn, soar, and fly – all at a level that would become cliche in the world music boom decades later, but which still sounds beautiful here at the roots. All tracks were hand-picked from the archives of the International Library Of African Music – and titles include "Nylon" and "Intogeymy" by The Lower Buttons, "Seven Stiches" and "Rock Phata 1001" by Kid Ma Wrong Wrong, "Lulu Part 4" by Bra Sello, "Mangothobane" and "Wamuhle Lomfana" by Flying Jazz Queens, "Kudala Ngizula" by Cowboy Superman & His Cowboy Sisters, and "Nice Time" by Que Sisters.

VariousSources – The DJ International Records Anthology – Compiled By Bill Brewster ... CD
Harmless (UK), Late 80s/Early 90s. New Copy 3CD ... $22.99
A set that's very near and dear to our hearts – given that the DJ International label was a huge force here on the Chicago scene during the 80s! The label was second only to Trax Records as a proving ground for so many new ideas in house music – a crucial indie who helped give many artists their start, and managed to get their music to much wider audiences around the globe! While Trax might have been first by a few beats, DJ international stepped forward with a much more professional approach – really focusing on some key stars in the growing house scene, and even working in album formats as well as the sort of singles that seemed to crop up every week during the 80s. This 3CD package is very well done – selected and annotated by dancefloor scholar Bill Brewster – with 35 cuts that include "Move" by Farm Boy, "Like This" by Chip E, "Shadows Of Your Love (original fierce club)" by JM Silk, "The It (Hardy club mix)" by Donnie, "Turn Up The Bass" by Tyree with Kool Rock Steady, "Check Out The Hook (dangerous DJ club)" by 2 Young Brothers, "Communicate (AT&T club)" by Full House, "Let's Go Don't U Want Some More" by Fast Eddie, "Don't Wanna Go (Mike Dunn voc club)" by Sterling Void, "Work On Me (99th Street piano club)" by Frankie Hollywood Rodriguez, "Acid Thunder (fast thunder club)" by Fast Eddie, "Freedom (Factory club)" by the Children, "House Music Is My Life (deep house club rmx)" by Tyree, "The Promised Land" by Joe Smooth, "It's U" by Farley Jackmaster Funk & Ricky Dillard, "Choice Of A New Generation (deep underground club)" by Rocky Jones, and "Only The Strong Survive" by Frankie Knuckles.

Harmless (UK), Late 80s. New Copy 3CD ... $22.99
A deep deep look at this seminal house music label from Chicago – maybe the first to ever give the Underground Records imprint its due! Underground was something of a partner to the more-mainstream DJ International – and as their name implies, they were a bit more underground, and often a lot more experimental – a great home for some of the more individual talents who were really stretching out in the late 80s – as Chicago house was trying to find ways to move past its original groove! Some of the cuts here rely heavily on vocals, but others have key electronic touches – including some nice acid moments – and lots also have that deep, bassy bottom that would forever be linked with "underground" in dance music. 3CD set features 39 long tracks – many of them rare 12" mixes – all hand-picked by dancefloor historian Bill Brewster. Artists include Steve Silk Hurley, Nipestar, Marshall Jefferson, Tyree, Bambi, MD III, ESP, Fast Eddie, Tyree, Muzz, Wanted For Fun, Boomer T, The Renegades, Cool House, King Force, and many others!

Philadelphia International, 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Wicked work from Dexter Wansel – a funky classic for Philly International, put together with just the sort of care he brought to his albums for other artists! The album's a bit more straight Philly than some of Dexter's earlier records – a bit less of the cosmic funk from before, but in its place are some amazing jazzy backings – modern soul galore, with key adult touches – completely sublime throughout, and wrapped up with more great keyboards than you're likely to find on other Philly albums! The album features a killer cut – "The Sweetest Pain", a smooth stepper with some subtle keyboard grooving behind warm female vocals by Terri Wells – and other great tracks include "Funk Attack", "New Beginning", "One For the Road", "It's Been Cool", and "I'll Never Forget My Favorite Disco".

Legrand already had plenty of records under his belt by the time he scored this great film – a heist movie with Steve McQueen and Faye Dunaway – and he brings all that experience to bear in his music here – with sounds that run from jazzy groovers to bossa instrumentals to a few vocal numbers that are completely sublime, and which show his music works equally well in English as it does in French! Noel Harrison sings the landmark "Windmills Of Your Mind", and Legrand himself sings on the killer "His Eyes Her Eyes" – both of which get instrumental versions as well – and other instrumental tracks include "The Chess Game", "Playing The Field", "The Boston Wrangler", "Doubting Thomas", "The Crowning Touch", and "Room Service". Plus, this CD features loads of unheard bonus tracks – and includes not just the 13 track album, but also 19 more titles from the original film score! CD
