DillingerCB 200/Bionic Dread ... CD
Mango/Universal (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $13.99
Two mighty albums by the famous Dub Organiser – back to back on a single CD! CB 200 is a straight up classic – one of his first LPs to break large on the international scene, and certainly one of the first Dee Jay records to do so! Channel One Hoo Kim production features the Ragnam Piza toasting mightily over some fat rhythms provided by Benbow & Sly, Family Man and an all star cast of other great Jamaican session men. There's a bit of back & forth toasting with Trinity on "Crankface", the huge hit "Cokane In My Brain" and other essentials like "Buckingham Palace", "Plantation Heights" and the title track. On Bionic Dread, Dillinger cuts loose on the mic in his six million dollar style over a set of tasty Hookim riddims, laid nicely at Channel One in the mid 70s. Tracks include "Bionic Dread", "King Of The Road", "Invisible Dread", "Forward Commandments", "Ragnampiza", "Eastman Skank", "Ital Fighting", "Combination Two", Selassie I" and "Natty B SC". 20 tracks in all.

✨✧ Dr AlimantadoBest Dressed Chicken In Town ... CD
Greensleeves/K (UK), 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
In a perfect world, this album would need no introduction from us. Granted, most of you out there are hip to this, but for those that aren't, let the good Doctor and Scratch Perry get you open on this classic, classic side of funky Black Ark reggae with the heavy murky Perry touch and some mad Dee Jay stylings from the best dressed chicken in town. 14 cuts, including the awesome title track, plus "Just The Other Day", "Gimme Mi Gun", "I Killed The Barber", "Unitone Skank", "Can't Conquer Natty Dreadlocks", "Ride On", "Ital Galore" and "Tribute To The Duke". CD

✨✧ Lee Scratch Perry & FriendsBlack Ark Years – The Jamaican 7 Inches ... CD
Trojan (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Some of the greatest work ever recorded by the mighty Lee Perry – a searing selection of 44 seven inch singles – all of which were well-tuned to boom out of Kingston sound systems back in the day! There's a sense of focus here that's wonderful – still all the odd, dubby twists and turns that make Perry's music so great – but honed down into the space of tight cuts that really helped redefine the role of the 45rpm single in Jamaican music! Lee takes the lead on a few cuts, and sits behind the controls of Black Ark on all the others – and titles include "Vibrate Onn (Jamaican mix)" by Augustus Pablo & The Upsetters, "It Hurts So Good" by Susan Cadogan, "Dreader Locks" by Junior Byles & Lee Perry, "Police & Thief" by Junior Murvin, "Ital Corner" by Prince Jazzbo, "Sipple Out Deh (Jamaican mix)" by Max Romeo, "Down Here In Babylon" by Brent Dowe, "Three Blind Mice" by Max Romeo, "Land Of Love" by The Sons Of Light, "Travelling" by Debra Keese & The Black Five, and "Think So" by The Meditations.

Anna Maria AlberghettiSongs By Anna Maria Alberghetti (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Mercury/Universal (Japan), 1954. Used ... $9.99
One of the earliest albums ever from Anna Maria Alberghetti – and a set that still really shows the singer's strong Italian roots! The style here is a mix of later vocal modes and earlier operatic ones – and Anna Maria definitely shows off her well-documented range throughout – really running up and down the scale with a skill that few other singers of her time could match! Backings frequently echo those Neopolitan elements that were big in postwar pop – and lyrics are mostly in English, but feature a few Italian songs as well. Titles include "Sleep My Baby", "The Blonde Girl In The Gondola", "Theme & Variations", "The Song From Desiree", and "Estrellita". CD

Alessandro AlessandroniAlessandro Alessandroni (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
SerMi/Gemelli (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy ... $23.99
Stunning sounds from the great Alessandro Alessandroni – an artist who contributed to countless Italian soundtracks in the 60s and 70s, and who sounds even more amazing here in this rare set of sound library funk! The album's all instrumental, and is overflowing with groovy little tracks – which mix together a blend of jazzy, fuzzy, and dreamy elements – all of them pretty darn nice! The approach is great – leaner than some of Alessandroni's soundtrack material, and more direct too – with a vibe that's right upfront, as the tunes leap from sound to sound, style to style – but always in a nicely trippy version of instrumental funk. Titles include "Flautiana", "Invention", "Evolution", "Giovane Flirt", "Campeggiatori", "Arcipelago", "On The Boat", "Cielo Giallo", and "Acque Azzurre". CD

✨✧ Doris AllenShell Of A Woman – The Legendary Playground Sessions ... CD
Soulscape (UK), Late 60s/Mid 80s. New Copy ... $11.99 19.99
Powerhouse soul from singer Doris Allen – who made a bit of a splash in the late 60s southern soul scene with duet partner Big John Hamilton – but who's own work from that time and a couple decades later have been under acknowledged in the digital era until now! The first half of the CD features the late 60s work, and it's wonderful – produced by Finley Duncan at Duncan's Playground Studios – featuring a couple of the Hamilton duets, but it's Doris's show. She can both shout out soulfully to the heavens and reign it in for more delicate numbers, and the often gritty soul backing of drums, organ and horns are of the finest caliber. The second half of the set jumps to the mid 80s, and the cleaner, smoother sounds of that era – still produced by Duncan – and Allen's voice as impeccable as earlier. Titles include "A Shell Of A Woman", "Kiss Yourself For Me", "Let A Little Love In", "A Place In My Heart", "Them Changes", "Bright Star", "Candy From A Baby", "Treat Me Like A Woman", "Full Time Fool", "Night Time Is The Right Time" and more, plus 9 previously unreleased tracks, including "Clean Up Woman", "Birmingham Jail", "Ashes Won't Burn" and more. 23 tracks in all!

AnushkaDistorted Air EP (with download) ... 12-inch
Brownswood (UK), 2014. New Copy ... $12.99 14.98
A nice little spacey club soul EP on Brownswood – actually the duo of singer/songwriter Victoria Port and producer Max Wheeler – and it's very promising stuff! Brownswood has a been a vital source for burgeoning progressive dancefloor talent for years now, and the depth continues to impress! Speaking of depth, Anushka stands out here thanks to deeper song-based level. The bubbling electro soul vibe is easy enough to get lost on a club or headphones level, but there's just defter, song-based vibe here. It get over even better thanks to Victoria's beautiful voice. Titles include "Broken Circuit", "Atom Bombs", "World In This Room" and "Blessing". 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Aphex TwinComputer Controlled Acoustic Instruments Part 2 EP (with download) ... LP
Warp, 2015. New Copy ... $16.99
The no longer hibernating Aphex Twin follows up 2014's excellent Syro LP with the appropriately-titled Computer Controlled Acoustic Instruments Part 2 EP – a coolly experimental project that's a lot different that his other recent work, but it's a worthy left turn! It's indeed played with a lot of live instruments – drums, cymbals and all around prominent percussion, piano, strings and more – which feels fresh and alive, even if it is played through computer control. Hypnotic sounds from a modern master. LP, Vinyl record album

Arp LifeZ Bezpieczna Szybkoscia ... LP
Polskie Nagrania/GAD (Poland), Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99
A record that you might spend a week trying to pronounce, but one that will grab you right away with its sound! Arp Life stick strongly in their best clubby modes here – mixing the keyboards of their name with some sweet disco-styled rhythms, and the occasional female chorus vocal, in a style that's pretty great if you dig the dancefloor sounds coming from France, Germany, and Italy in the late 70s. Most tracks are instrumentals – the set includes solos on alto sax and harmonica at times – and the album was only ever issued as a cassette back in the 70s, which makes this version a great surprise. Titles include "Akwarele", "Papagayo", "Bam Bam Bam", "San Jose", "Klik Klak", "Slon I Mrowka", and "Tango Mundial". LP, Vinyl record album

Chet BakerBaby Breeze (Folio) ... CD
Verve/Folio (Italy), 1964. Used ... $4.99
It's the mid 60s, and although Chet's lost the classic sound of his early recordings, he does a pretty nice job in this small group session that has him playing fluegelhorn in place of a recently-stolen trumpet. The sound is nice and compressed, with a tightly restrained feel that works well with his voice on the album's vocal tracks. The group includes Bob James, Frank Strozier, and Hal Galper – and titles include "Baby Breeze", "This Is The Thing", "I Wish You Love", "Pamela's Passion", and "Comin Down". CD

BalancoBossa & Balanco ... CD
Schema (Italy), 1997. New Copy ... $16.99
Mindblowing work from the early years of Schema Records – a set that really helped set a whole new tone for a generation – and which still sounds wonderful all these many hears later! Balanco work up a perfect blend of bossa rhythms and soulful jazz – all wrapped up with the kind of slinky, sexy vibe the Italian scene first perfected back in the 60s – when they were borrowing lots of Brazilian elements for their best soundtracks! Balanco's sound here really recalls those glory days – mixing together sweet female vocals, lively bossa rhythms, and great work on Fender Rhodes – all under the guidance of Nicola Conte, who manages to make everything sound beautiful together. Highlights include versions of Morricone's "Metti Una Sera A Cena" and the classic "Cinnamon & Clove", but there's loads of other cool originals – like "Butterfly", "Fantasia", "Sister Bossa", "Aguadream", and "Blue Skat Samba".

Andrea BalducciBloom (with bonus track) ... CD
Schema (Italy), 2013. Used ... $9.99
One of the most soulful albums we've heard from Schema in many years – a brilliant batch of jazzy tracks from singer Andrea Balducci – served up with backing by a great lineup of players from both the Ricky Tick and Schema worlds! The core approach is jazz, but many of the songs are done with a very soulful approach – a style that's a bit like Mario Biondi, especially given Balducci's use of English throughout, and his raspy vocals – yet more 60s soul in the end, with a unified aesthetic that really holds strong over the course of the album. Players include Jukka Eskola on trumpet, Timo Lassy on tenor, Gaetano Partipilo on alto, and Luca Mannuzta on Fender Rhodes and piano – and titles include "Hurt So Bad", "Spooky", "Within Myself", "Big City", "I Just Dropped In", "Time Will Come", and "The Meaning Of Love". CD features a bonus track – "Hurt So Bad (swing version)". CD

Bama LamasGoing Up? (with download) ... LP
Bama Lamas, 2014. New Copy ... $7.99
Rowdy, vintage R&B-fueled rockers from The Bama Lamas – a contemporary Chicago band with a retro sound, akin to late 50s though mid 60s ragers from The Burnette Brothers to Screamin' Jay Hawkins and lots in between – and they make it sound fresh and vital! A couple of the Bama Lamas also serve as band members for the legendary Andre Williams, if you need any more evidence to their authenticity – and the tracks include "Tell Ya Once", "(Do) The Hurt", "Sugar Snap", "Sambuca", "(Do) The Crab", "Hunger", "Goin' Out", "Hungry Teenage Wolfman", "Monkey Bump", "Ghost Of The Voodoo King", "No More" and more. Recorded in mono – glorious mono! LP, Vinyl record album

Brigitte BardotBrigitte Bardot Sings (pic disc) (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Philips/Doxy (Italy), Early 60s. New Copy ... $25.99
Classic 60s work from Brigitte Bardot – the roots of French female pop, with a set of tracks that mix together bits of rock, pop, and lively jazz-based arrangements – all in a unique blend that's totally great, and every bit as wonderful as you might expect! We might go so far as to argue that Brigitte Bardot on record is almost sexier than on the screen – and thanks to backing from the likes of Claude Bolling, Francois Rauber, and Pedro Serrano – the grooves are as great as the lovely lady's vocals! The set includes a great track written by Serge Gainsbourg, and titles include "L'Appareil A Sous", "Invitango", "Les Amis De La Musique", "Pas Davantage", "La Madrague", "El Cuchipe", "Everybody Loves My Baby", and "C'Est Rigolo".

✨✧ Basso Valdambrini QuintetBasso Valdambrini Quintet (1959) ... LP
Jolly/BTF (Italy), 1959. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
A sharp-edged session of tremendous trumpet and tenor interplay – served up by the legendary quintet of Gianni Basso and Oscar Valdambrini! The album's got a sound that's as hip as it looks – a great approach to 50s modern jazz, done in a style that's equally influenced by west coast cool and east coast hardbop! Valdambrini's trumpet is beautifully measured throughout – with echoes of both Kenny Dorham and Chet Baker – offset by some deeper grooving on tenor from Basso, who plays with a strength and command that few American players of the time could match. Titles include "Come Out Wherever You Are", "Lo Struzzo Oscar", "Lotar", "Gone With The Wind", "Parlami D'Amore Mariu", and "Fan Tan". LP, Vinyl record album

Basso Valdambrini QuintetFonit H602/603 ... CD
Schema (Italy), 1970. New Copy Gatefold ... $18.99
Wonderful work from one of the greatest Italian jazz groups of the 60s – heard here in two of their rarest recordings! The set brings together material from two sessions that were only issued on the Fonit sound library label – but both are every bit as sharp and soulful as the best Basso-Valdambrini work for bigger labels – including their early 60s gems on RCA! And like those records, there's a wonderful sense of rhythm here – kind of the soul jazz side of Blue Note, but handled with a fresh sound that's nicely free of any copycat cliches – and which instead really has the group finding their own voice through their writing and solos. The H602 album is billed as "pop jazz" – which is more a 60s soul jazz style – and H603 is called "Californiano", with a bit of a west coast vibe, but still very much the best grooves we've come to love from the combo. The lineup on both includes tremendous trumpet from Oscar Valdabrini and tenor from Gianni Basso – with rhythms from Ettore Righello on piano, Giorgio Azzolini on bass, and Lionella Bionda on drums. Titles include "Pick Up", "Glaucus", "Gold Mine", "From Me", "Maglione", "Muy", "Plinius", and "Transistor". CD

Basso Valdambrini QuintetWalking In The Night ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1960. New Copy ... $13.99
Some of the best modern jazz Italy had to offer in the postwar years – and a record that's gone onto be the blueprint for countless recent work from groups on labels like Schema and Deja Vu! Tracks are short, but very groove-centered – often mixing modal jazz rhythms with hardbop solo energy – served up beautifully through the tenor of Gianni Basso and the trumpet of Oscar Valdambrini! The pair are hardly a household name on this side of the Atlantic, but their interplay here matches the best on Blue Note from the same time – and gets some great rhythm support from the trio of Renato Sellani on piano, Giorgio Azzolini on bass, and Gianni Carzola on drums. Most tracks here are originals by members of the group, and titles include "Lotar", "Time Was", "Bashfully", "Tea Time", "Mitigati", "Renee", "Dialogo", and "Ricordando Lester". CD

Apple, 1968. Used 2CD ... $6.99
The Beatles at their late best – 1968's self-titled set, now immortalized as The White Album! The White Album capped offed a period of intense creativity for the band with a double that's as freewheeling as anything they'd ever release. It's got raw rockers with wry lyricism, tender acoustic balladry, psych blues jams and some flat out weird bits. As was always the case, John's and Paul's songs cover the majority of the sides, but The White Album also features what's arguably George's most vital moment as a Beatle with "While My Guitar Gently Weeps". Other tracks include "Back InThe USSR", "Dear Prudence","Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da", "Happiness Is A Warm Gun", "Martha My Dear", "Rocky Raccoon", "Why Don't We Do It In The Road", "Julia", "Yer Blues", "Sexy Sadie", "Helter Skelter", "Revolution 1", Good Night" and more.
