Lee Scratch Perry & FriendsBlack Ark Years – The Jamaican 7 Inches ... CD
Trojan (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
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.

✨✧ DillingerCB 200/Bionic Dread ... CD
Mango/Universal (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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.

Alessandro AlessandroniSangue Di Sbirro ... CD
Cinedelic (Italy), 1977. New Copy ... $16.99
One of the funkiest soundtracks we've ever heard from Alessandro Alessandroni – a set that clearly shows he'd been listening to the score for Shaft, as well as a host of 70s sound library music too! There's lots of great Italian cop/crime grooves on the set – done at an understated level that's almost better than more familiar work of the genre – often strongly focused on the core rhythms, which are lean and plenty darn funky – bad-stepping with instrumentation that's often small combo funky jazz more than it is the bigger orchestrations of American cop scores. Titles include "Cop's Blood", "Amusement", "Duke Soul Jazz", "Tema Di Susie", "Club Jazz", "Palance", "Knell", "Sbirro In Fuga", and "Luxury". CD

Doris AllenShell Of A Woman – The Legendary Playground Sessions ... CD
Soulscape (UK), Late 60s/Mid 80s. Used ... $9.99
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!

Alvarius (Francesco Zampaglione/Andrea Moscianese)Tulpa – Perdizioni Mortali (with bonus CD) ... LP
Cinedelic (Italy), 2013. New Copy ... $26.99
A cool contemporary score from Italy – but one that feels like horror greats from the late 70s and early 80s! The instrumentation here is mostly in an old school electric style – keyboards and guitars that echo the music of Goblin, but at a level that's often more spare and less jamming – stretching out with this great sense of space that really builds up the tension and mood throughout – to create a really captivating record, even away from the screen. Titles include "Phurba", "Escape From Tulpa", "Lonely Nights", "Working My Ass Off", "Italian Giallo", "Lisa's Theme", and "Bloody Radio". LP, Vinyl record album

ApoteosiApoteosi (180 gram pressing) ... LP
AMS (Italy), Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
A really unusual set from the Italian scene of the 70s – a record that still has some of the proggish traces of the underground at the time, but which also is clearly reaching out for new levels of expression too! There's definitely a lot of fusion in the mix – these long passages that have a nicely jamming jazzy vibe, especially on guitar and keyboard lines – almost with some of the spacey touches you'd find in the best American fusion of the period, especially the sort that was itself influenced by prog. There's a sweet female singer who brings in a slightly soulful vibe at one point, but the main focus of the record is instrumental – and titles include "Embrion", "Prima Realta", "Attesa", "Il Grande Disumano", and "Frammentaria Rivolta".

Arp LifeZ Bezpieczna Szybkoscia ... LP
Polskie Nagrania/GAD (Poland), Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
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

Edward ArtemievSolaris (suite) (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Mirumir/Superior Viaduct, 1972. New Copy ... $19.99
An amazing companion to the soundtrack album from the film Solaris – an extended suite of tracks that works in a very similar way – with electronics layered in these beautiful, hypnotic modes – sometimes noisy, sometimes pleasant – always compelling throughout, thanks to the visionary music of Edward Artemiev! This lovely package features a cool gatefold cover, with the images from the Italian poster of the film from the 70s – but the mindblowing music on the record is the real appeal – an extended suite of electronic sounds, in 17 movements!

Luis BacalovA Ciascuno Il Suo/La Polizia E Al Servizio Del Cittadino? ... CD
GDM/Quartet, 1966/1973. New Copy ... $12.99
Two great Luis Bacalov soundtracks – back to back on a single CD! A Ciascuno Il Suo is a great thriller soundtrack – by one of the Italian masters of the 60s! Bacalov's score for the film mixes jazzy numbers with more suspenseful orchestral ones – but the best cuts have a jaunty groovy quality, of the sort you dig these old Italian soundtracks for! Bruno Nicolai conducted the orchestra, and the nicest cuts have choppy percussion and some good instrumental elements, like sax or organ – which stand out nicely, and help really bring a lot of flavor to the record! There's a great bossa version of the title tune – plus cuts that include "Delitto D'Onore", "Intrigo", "L'Imboscata", "Pour Reve L'Hiver", and "Sulla Spiaggia". La Polizia E Al Servizio Del Cittadino is presented in a much more expanded format than before – 13 tracks in all, really stretching out Bacalov's beautiful music for the film! Things start slow and sensitive, but proceed with lots of very cool off-beat strings, drums, and electronic bits – making for a very cool set of police themes with a very dark edge. Titles include "Di Notte Genova", "Il Killer", "Indagando", "Attesa Ossessiva", and "Un Uomo Solo Contro La Citta". CD

BalancoBossa & Balanco ... CD
Schema (Italy), 1997. Used ... $6.99
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".

Bama LamasGoing Up? (with download) ... LP
Bama Lamas, 2014. New Copy ... $11.99
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

BandidoBandido (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Philips/Barnyard (Italy), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
A killer funky rock group from early 70s Mexico – one that plays with some sweet jazzy touches too! The sound here is a bit like the jazz rock of the US and UK scenes – with soulful lyrics that really find a nice home amidst the jamming guitars, brassy horns, and funky rhythms at the bottom! And in fact, there's a familiarity to some of the tunes – a groove that makes you say "dang, where have I heard this one before" – but only because the quality level of the album's so high, these cuts should have been bigger on the global scene! Titles include the groovy "Pobre Ecologo", which has some nice organ – plus "Libertad Ahora", "Dama De Invierno", "Un Nuevo Dia", "Manana", and "Exhortacion". LP, Vinyl record album

Gato BarbieriUltimo Tango A Parigi (aka Last Tango In Paris) ... LP
Liberty (Italy), 1972. Sealed ... $19.99
Listen, forget every cliche you've ever heard about this film, because this soundtrack is amazing! Gato Barbieri knocked himself out for this one, and came up with an insanely wonderful batch of "modern jazz tango" tracks that mix out soloing, pounding bandoneon rhythms, and lush romantic scoring – and the result is a score that still never fails to send chills down our spines. Includes many versions of the "Last Tango" theme, plus the tracks "Girl In Black", "Jeanne", "Why Did She Choose You?", "It's Over", and "Fake Ophelia". LP, Vinyl record album

John BarryDove (with bonus tracks) ... CD
ABC/Intrada, 1974. New Copy ... $19.99
A cool little score from John Barry – quite different from his usual soundtrack material, with a breezy sort of style that really fits the spirit of this sailing film! Instrumentation is often a light blend of strings and keyboards – a bit of electric harpsichord or melodica at points, which is especially cool – plus some occasional woodwind moments at more dramatic moments, often used to underscore the mood of a piece. Barry's still got that great sense of space and timing he developed at the end of the 60s – a real musical maturation that almost echoes some Italian styles at points. Titles include "The Motorbike & The Dove", "Alone On The Wide Wide Sea", "Porpoise Escort", "Xing Mombila", "After The Fire", "Patty & Robin", and "Hitch-Hike to Darwin" – plus "Sail The Summer Winds", sung by Lyn Paul. CD features lots of bonus tracks too – 8 unreleased mono score tracks, and 3 more stereo tracks from the album sessions too. CD

Gianni BassoJazz Al Centro Pirelli ... CD
Cinedelic (Italy), 1970. Used ... $19.99
A rare 1970 set from Italian tenorist Gianni Basso – a set that's easily one of the greatest examples of his talents we've ever heard! Basso's tone on tenor is amazing – blown with a sense of freedom that's breathtaking, with odd phrasings and voicings that are extremely personal – almost in the territory of Sonny Rollins on his live classics of the 60s, or Albert Ayler in more inside moments – even though Gianni's never too outside. There's a sense of balance here that's brilliant – as Basso clearly could let loose into much freer territory, yet always keeps his cool and instead fits the tunes with a range of sounds few others players might match. The rest of the group is wonderful too – with Renato Sellani on piano, Giorgio Azzolini on bass, and Gil Cuppini on drums – working with Gianni on titles that include "Gingerbread Boy", "Naima", "So What", "Reaching Forth", and "Sweet Little Maya".

Basso Valdambrini Octet with Lars GullinNew Sound From Italy ... LP
Jolly/BTF (Italy), 1959. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
A definite new sound from Italy – served up by one of the hippest groups on the scene at the time! The combo of trumpeter Oscar Valdambrini and tenorist Gianni Basso was easily one of the best of their generation – and here, they're working in a slightly expanded octet mode that features guest work from Swedish baritone sax giant Lars Gullin! The album's great proof of Gullin's ability to slide into any sort of a setting – and his baritone provides a great bottom to the already-dextrous horn interplay between Basso and Valdambrini. Gullin arranged about half the numbers in the set – the rest were scored by George Gruntz or Piero Umiliani – and titles include "Blues For Gassman", "Indiana", "Fascinating Rhythm", "There Will Never Be Another You", "How About You", and "Peter Of April".
