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.

✨✧ 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.

✨✧ RootsIlladelph Halflife ... CD
Geffen, 1996. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Their second major US release after two import/indie LP's and the awesome debut, Do You Want More?, though this is the one that put them over. One on the few current hip hop acts that are able to do a proper live show and it's hard to choose which is better: live, LP or 12" remixes. 14 full-length tracks and 3 interludes, including "Clones", "Universe at War" (featuring Common Sense), "Ital", "Section" and "Concerto of the Desparado".

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

Alvarius (Francesco Zampaglione/Andrea Moscianese)Tulpa – Perdizioni Mortali ... CD
Beat (Italy), 2013. Used ... $9.99
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". CD

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".

Luis BacalovL'uomo Che Sfido L'Organizzazione ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1975. New Copy ... $14.99
One of the funkier, groovier soundtracks we've heard from maestro Luis Bacalov – a very cool 70s score that includes sweet keyboards, funky flute, wah wah guitar, and even a bit of whistling too! The tunes have more depth and pacing than a standard cop/crime film of the period – and Bacalov shines equally in the few mellower moments, which pace things out in this great way, and create a sense of sentiment that really draws us in. The production is wonderful, too – as airy as the music, in ways that sometimes abstract the instrumentation in this very unusual style – never too offbeat, but definitely a "something extra" that makes the record great. Nora Orlandi sings just a bit on the set, and the CD features 17 tracks from the film – including two bonus cuts too! CD

Luis Bacalov (Luiz Enriquez)L'Amica (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Octave (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $21.99
One of the greatest soundtracks ever from Luiz Bacalov – a set that's filled with sex and slink, but which also has a great sense of groove as well – blending bossa jazz, mod moments, and all the best styles of the late 60s Italian scene! The music is mostly acoustic, but has a really great way of using sustained notes on flute – which creates this dreamy vibe that's almost electric, especially when offset by acoustic basslines, percussion, and piano – all used at a level that's right up there with the best from Morricone or Trovajoli at the time! There's also wonderful drifting vocals in the mix – courtesy of Nora Orlandi – and titles include "Round Nassau", "Swingin Easy In Tanganika", "Rio Zona Sul", "L'Amica", and "Taxi Cab 67". CD also features 9 bonus tracks too! CD

Chet BakerChet Baker In Milan ... CD
Jazzland/OJC, 1959. Used ... $8.99
Chet Baker plays with a good sextet comprised of Italian players Gianno Basso, Renato Sellani, Glauco Masetti, Franco Serri, and Gene Victory. They run though a good set of jazz standards like "Tune Up", "Pent Up House", "Lady Bird", and "Line for Lyons". Good stuff, and one of his best straight jazz recordings from the time. CD

Chet BakerChet Is Back! ... LP
RCA (Italy), 1962. Sealed ... $24.99
One of Chet Baker's rarest albums – and a great one! The session was recorded in Rome in 1962, at a time when Chet's star had fallen quite a bit on the American scene, and it features him working with some of the hippest European players at the time – like Rene Thomas on guitar, Bobby Jaspar on tenor and flute, Amadeo Tomassi on piano, and Daniel Humair on drums. The tracks are longer than those on some of Chet's earlier albums – with an angularity that brings out new modes of blowing on some of his solos. Titles include "Blues In The Closet", "Barbados", "Star Eyes", "Pent Up House", and "Ballata In Forma Di Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

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

Banda Black RioSuper Nova Samba Funk ... CD
Far Out (UK), 2011. Used ... $8.99
A brilliant new vision for the legendary Banda Black Rio – the pioneering samba, soul and funk combo that broke so much ground in the 70s and remain vital to this day – led here by William Magalhaes, in a mode that celebrates decades of the best Brazilian music, while fearlessly moving it forward! William's father Oberdan Magalhaes was a driving force behind the original Banda Black Rio, and we couldn't really imagine a more appropriate new vision for the group than his son's. William wrote or co-wrote each track and he sings, plays keys and synth, guitar, bass, drums and more. The expansive group brings a depth of percussion, horns, strings and vocals – delivering timeless and dexterous jazzy Brazilian funk and dancefloor soul. The guest list includes classic and contemporary greats like Seu Jorge, Elza Soares, Marcio Local, Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil and others! Includes "Louis Lane" with Seu Jorge & Mano Brown, "Super Nova Samba Funk (9 No Samba)", "America Do Sul", "Isabela" feat Elza Soares and Cesar Camargo Mariano, "Samba Nova", "Quem Vem La" feat Marcio Local, "Deixa Estar" feat Aleh, "Lindos Olhos" feat Seu Jorge and Don Pixote, "Paname" feat Pyroman, "Final Feliz", "Irere" feat Gilberto Gil, "Aos Pes Do Redentor" feat Caetano Veloso and more. 16 tracks on the CD version.

Banda FavelaO Ritmo Misturado ... CD
Irma (Italy), 2002. Used ... $5.99
A charming little groover from this Italian combo – with a raw sound and a funky samba approach that takes the set over the top! The feel of this one is rootsy 70s – lots of heavy percussion and straight ahead vocals – mixed with touches of Fender Rhodes, vibes, and electric guitar to give the album a warmer jazzier sound – sparkling with some of the styles heard on other Irma bossa records, but much more in a true Brazilian tradition, and without any remix tomfoolery! Titles include "Neguinho", "Jungle Minas", "Samba 2150", "Agua Santa", "Candieiro", "Berimbau Viola", "Rainha Do Mar", and "Samba De Ile". Great stuff – perfect for new and old groovers alike! CD

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

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

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".

Basso Valdambrini QuintetBasso Valdambrini Quintet (1959) ... LP
Jolly/BTF (Italy), 1959. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99
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

Jolly (Italy), 1960. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
The Basso Valdambrini Quintet gets a great addition here – the trombone of Dino Piana, who helps expand the frontline sound tremendously! Piana's horn is added to the already-tight lines from Gianni Bass on tenor and Oscar Valdambrini on trumpet – making for a magnificent groove that steps out with the kind of energy you'd find on a classic date from this time on Blue Note or Prestige! The rest of the group features Giorgio Azzolino on bass, Renato Sellini on piano, and Gianni Cazzola on drums – and the titles are a well-chosen batch of tracks that are handled with a keen modern edge throughout. Tracks include "Lucy Ed 10", "Il Grimmo", "Topsy", "I Should Care", "Ciau Turin", "Crazy Rhythm", and "Guess Who". LP, Vinyl record album

Basso Valdambrini SextetSestetto Basso Valdambrini – The Best Modern Jazz In Italy 1962 ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1962. New Copy ... $13.99
A really landmark album in European jazz – one of those records that always tops the lists of collectors, and for good reason too! The sextet of trumpeter Oscar Valdambrini and tenorist Gianni Basso was easily one of the greatest things going in jazz on that side of the Atlantic in the early 60s – a fresh, modern group who could still play with plenty of soul – avoiding some of the cool jazz traps of other European combos, and really hitting hard with solo work that matched the best American work of the time. The sound here is really incredible – tunes that bristle with electricity from the very first note, played with a cohesiveness that makes the record far more than just a happy accident in the studio! Titles include the originals "Coltrane Style" and "Monotonia", plus versions of Jackie McLean's "Dr Jackle", Junior Mance's "Jubilation", and Benny Golson's "Are You Real". CD

BeatlesBeatles – The White Album ... LP
Apple, 1968. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $28.99
The Beatles at their late best – on 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. LP, Vinyl record album
