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

Threadgill, Hopkins, and McCall play in a manner that blends freeness with soulfulness and a nice dash of creative humor – which results in a trio of tracks that are essential listening for fans of the group. Titles include "BK", which features some great flute work by Threadgill, plus "RB" and "CT, JL". LP, Vinyl record album

Alessandro AlessandroniAlessandro Alessandroni – Butterfly #3 ... CD
Cometa (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy ... $19.99
Wonderfully mad grooves from the great Alessandro Alessandroni – and a set that seems to draw on all of his mighty talents at once! Some numbers have a soul jazz groove, with great lead piano from the maestro – others have cool wordless vocals, or maybe even a bit of whistling – all those hip touches that Alessandroni brought not just to his own soundtrack work, but to the help he gave so many other composers on their best 60s recordings – yet served up here in a batch of ultra-rare tracks recorded by the man himself, and only issued on the small Cometa sound library label! Album features 15 titles in all – all nice and groovy – with titles that include "Girovago", "Louisiana Gospel", "Apice", "Prismatico", "Baia D'Argento", "Meridione", "Colori D'Oro", "White Club", and "Trotterellando".

Alessandro AlessandroniI Cantori Moderni (transparent vinyl pressing) ... LP
Flipper/Dagored (Italy), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99
One of the coolest albums we've ever heard from Italian soundtrack genius Alessandro Alessandroni – a set that's heavy on the vocal interplay of his I Cantori Moderni group, but which also features lots of dark musical elements as well! The blend is incredible – soaring harmonies on one hand, served up with plenty of jazz – but some cool instrumental twists and turns underneath, which often create a moody quality that really contrasts the vocals! Alessandroni's always been great – but this album takes his genius to a whole new level – with cuts that include "Verso L'Infinito", "Ciocando Con Le Note", "Valzer Del Baraccone", "Nella Balera", and "Ghen Ghen Ghe".

Alessandro AlessandroniPrisma Sonora ... CD
Cometa (Italy), 1972. New Copy ... $19.99
A dream of a record from the legendary Alessandro Alessandroni – an obscure sound library set, but one that we'd rank right up there with our favorite Italian soundtrack classics of the time! Alessandroni's going for a very Morricone-like feel here – lots of spacious rhythms, isolated instruments, and a feel that's watery, but never sleepy – kind of a liquid groove that's really beautiful throughout! Instruments are nice and compressed – way down in the rhythms, and stepping along with a La Donna Invisible quality that's really sublime – just a few electric touches, but mostly acoustic, and with an equal sense of grace and groove. Titles include "Dialoghi D'Amore", "Punti Di Vista", "Breve Dialettica", "Vocali Sul Pentagramma", and "Aspetti Musicali". CD
(Limited edition of 500!)

Alessandro AlessandroniUST 370 – Caratteristici Vari (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Usignolo/Sonor (Italy), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
One of those sound library records that you know is going to be great, right from what you see on the cover – not just the name of Alessandro Alessandroni, who's always given us great music – but also the Italian descriptions of the tunes – which are listed with phrases like "ritmica nervosa", "sessione jazzistica", or "rithm and blues" – all of which lead to some very groovy music within! The tunes have a nicely compressed approach – most are in the two minute range, yet manage to pack in plenty in the process – most in a mode that's more electric funky and groovy than Alessandroni would have sounded a few short years before – which makes for even cooler results than we were expecting from the cover. Titles include "Soul Jazz", "Jazz Club", "Notizie Ufficiali", "Riflessi D'Acqua", "Sensualita", "Divertimento", "Storielle", "Foggy Place", "Racconti", and "Oasi". LP, Vinyl record album

Alessandro Alessandroni, Sandro Brugnolini, TeimarAkriliko ... CD
Cometa (Italy), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $21.99
A sweet selection of unreleased material from the vaults of Italy's famous Cometa Records sound library – a package that's pretty heavy on keyboard and electronic bits, with a sound that's right up there with some of the best Italian horror and action scoring of the early 80s! In fact, there's a strong sense of drama throughout – a nice call to action in some of the tunes, as the keyboard lines set up a mood, then send it soaring – and basslines brood along to create these cool darker currents! The whole thing's still pretty tuneful – none of the atonal qualities that show up in other Italian scoring – and the three artists often collaborate throughout, in different groupings – on titles that include "Serpentina Junior", "Turismo Giovane", "Akriliko", "Speed", "Preallarme", "Romantico Junior", "Viaggio Giovanne", and "Riflessione".

Doris AllenShell Of A Woman – The Legendary Playground Sessions ... CD
Soulscape (UK), Late 60s/Mid 80s. New Copy ... $13.99 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!

Alma Afrobeat EnsembleIt's Time (with download) ... LP
Slow Walk (Spain), 2016. New Copy ... $18.99
Nice one from Barcelona's Alma Afrobeat Ensemble – with some righteous, timeless original tunes by the group – plus some stylistic boundary-busting collaborations with remix producers! The straighter Afrobeat numbers are pretty great – inspired by the legends of the style, blending western soul, funk and jazz with African rhythms and percussion – providing a danceable foundation for some pretty righteous lyrics – sung largely in English by Lagos-born vocalist Joe Psalmist. The remixes are fresh cuts, too, as opposed to re-workings of same album's other tracks – and they really bring in some diverse dancefloor style, too. Titles include "It's Time", "Live And Let's Live", "Shakedown", "Lost", "Siempre Prente (DJ Farmer Fiesta Remix)" and "Room Enough" featuring Ray Lugo (Terrifcos Remix) LP, Vinyl record album
(Vinyl version includes a download code for a digital version of the album plus additional remixes.)

Alvarius (Francesco Zampaglione/Andrea Moscianese)Tulpa – Perdizioni Mortali (with bonus CD) ... LP
Cinedelic (Italy), 2013. Sealed ... $14.99
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

Gladstone Anderson/Roots RadicsGladstone Anderson Sings Songs For Today & Tomorrow/Radical Dub Session ... CD
Glad Sound/DKR, Early 80s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $19.99 21.98
The legendary Jamaican keyboards and piano groover – a pivotal player in classic ska, rocksteady and reggae – divering a surprisingly wonderful vocal album in the early 80s! Being a longtime vital player by this point, we know Gladdy was wise enough that he wouldn't of done this if he didn't really have it in him, and it's honestly sweet as can be – self-produced and done with a classic touch – wit Winston Wright, Scully and Errol Holt on the session. Titles include "Brimstone And Fire", "Speak The Truth", "Thanks And Praise", "Advantage", "Mount Zion", "Mind Memory", "Let's Rap" and more. 2CD version also comes with the Roots Radics Dub Session – featuring Gladdy of course, with "Rock In Dub", "Good Times Dub", "Wiseman Dub", "Stone Dub", "Travel Dub", "Do Good Dub" and more.

Arp LifeJumbo Jet/Z Bezpiecznq Szybkosciq (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Polskie Nagrania/GAD (Poland), Late 70s. New Copy ... $9.99
Sweet sweet grooves from 70s Poland – played by a studio combo who've got a definite flair for a disco-styled sound! The set features two full albums by the group – the first of which is their legendary Jumbo Jet record – a massive blend of keyboards, light strings, and other rhythmic elements – all at a level that easily rivals some of the best clubby styles from the other side of the Iron Curtain at the time! Most tracks are instrumental, and often just get a bit of female chorus elements bubbling through the mix – in this kind of Euro sexy style that's mighty nice. The overall sound is more Euro or Canadian disco – but still quite nice – and the set includes the funky number "Bu Bu", plus "Motor Rock", "Olo Boogie", "Hotel Victoria", "Baby Bump", "Jumbo Jet", and "Apolobamba". Next is the group's follow-up set – Z Bezpiecznq Szybkosciq – 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". CD features four bonus tracks too – "Bump", "Bilbao", "Adelajda", and "Tonpress".

Albert AylerFirst Recordings Vol 1 ... LP
Jeanne Dielman (Italy), 1962. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
Early work by avant saxophone genius Albert Ayler – and very very striking! The setting is very spare, with only bass and drums backing Ayler up – and the way the album is mixed, Ayler's solos dominate the tracks in a way that isn't always the case with some of the more group-driven later work. His tone is amazing even in this early date of 1962 – and he completely blows away the other two players on the set, drummer Sune Spangberg and bassist Torbjorn Hulcrantz. The set was first recorded by the small Swedish label Bird Notes, and it's the beginning of a longtime love affair that Swedish modernists had with Ayler's tone and playing – a love affair that runs up to the current avant garde that includes Mats Gustafsson. Includes a mindblowing reworking of "I'll Remember April", plus versions of "Rollins Tune" and "Tune Up", and Ayler's own "Free". LP, Vinyl record album

Albert AylerMy Name Is Albert Ayler ... LP
Debut/Jeanne Dielman (Italy), 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
A key early album by Albert Ayler – a mindblowing record even all these many years later, and a key introduction of Ayler's music to the rest of the world! The set begins with a compelling spoken introduction from Albert – really taking the time to introduce himself and his new approach to jazz – then rolls into searing sounds on tenor and soprano sax, played with accompaniment from a European trio that has Niels-Henning Orsted Pedersen on bass, Niels Bronsted on piano, and Ronnie Gardier on drums. A number of the tunes are standards – used by Ayler here in ways that are similar to some of Cecil Taylor's initial recordings – as a way of marking his own different in jazz, before setting out on his own compositions in years to come. Given the quartet setting, there's less of the locked horns and rhythms of some of Ayler's ESP recordings to come – but the difference in format also makes the album a real standout in his catalog, too. Titles include "Bye Bye Blackbird", "Summertime", "On Green Dolphin Street", and "CT". LP, Vinyl record album

Albert AylerNew York Eye & Ear Control (Italian pressing) ... CD
ESP (Italy), 1964. Used ... $9.99
Seminal ESP work from Albert Ayler – a unique session done as a soundtrack to a short (and weird!) film from experimental director Michael Snow! The lineup is a bit different than some of Ayler's other ESP albums – and features Don Cherry on trumpet and cornet, John Tchicai on alto, Roswell Rudd on trombone, Gary Peacock on bass, and Sunny Murray on drums. At times, the record's got a bit of a "new thing" vibe – a bit more spacious and sonic than some of Ayler's other material – but at other times, it burns with an intensity that's almost harder and freer than any of Albert's trio dates of the 60s. The album features 2 long tracks – "AY" and "ITT" – plus the shorter "Don's Dawn". CD

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

Beat (Italy), 1981. New Copy ... $16.99
A slow-building score from Luis Bacalov – one that really demonstrates the well of sentiment and gentle emotion that he would tap into for his work of the 80s and 90s! The music here is partly period, but mostly mellow themes that have Luis unfolding piano and strings in a spare, but powerful way – almost like Morricone's bigger film soundtracks of the period, but gentler, and more sentimental at times. The subtle qualities of the music really work well – and the CD features 20 tracks in all, with over 75 minutes of music! CD

Luis BacalovSugar Colt ... CD
Rambling (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... $23.99
An obscure early soundtrack from Italian composer Luis Bacalov – penned for a western that begins with a nicely playful tune that almost echoes American western film music, but which soon moves into the deeper, darker tones that belie Bacalov's resume as a much more sophisticated compositional talent! Some points almost have the starkness of a 20th Century modern composition, but in these closer, more terse ways – that sense of sound and all its properties that Bacalov always retained, offset by a few more dynamic numbers that are clearly used to underscore dramatic points in the story. CD features 18 tracks in all – including 2 bonus alternates! CD
