Martin DennyHypnotique ... LP
Liberty/Jackpot, 1959. New Copy (reissue)... $20.99 21.99
An amazing little set that's as compelling as the title and cover might imply – and easily one of our favorite Martin Denny albums ever! There's a sound here that is, actually, quite "hypnotique" – as Denny's core combo is expanded by some larger arrangements, Japanese instrumentation, and even some cool vocals by the Jack Halloran singers – all of which serve to create these pulsating musical lines that shift and sway with an extremely dreamy quality, one that can easily hypnotize us with its musical magic! The added sound really adds a lot to Denny's core group – and the record has some great tracks like "Jungle Madness", "American In Bali", "Chinese Lullaby", "Hypnotique", "Scimitar", and "Voodoo Dreams".

✨✧ Martin DennyQuiet Village ... LP
Liberty/Jackpot, 1959. New Copy (reissue)... $20.99 21.99
An undisputed classic in the exotica genre – and the record that yielded Martin Denny his biggest hit! The title track "Quiet Village" was originally written by Les Baxter, but it was Martin Denny's approach that really managed to send the tune over the top – using spare percussion, rhythmic piano, and just the right amount of vibes and bird calls to give the track a really haunting feel. That approach is echoed throughout the set – with shifting instrumentation that includes celeste, bongos, marimbas, and marimbula as well! Titles include "Quiet Village", "Paradise Found", "Sake Rock", "Martinique", "Tune From Rangoon", and "Pagan Love Song". LP, Vinyl record album

Howlin Wolf, Muddy Waters, & Bo DiddleySuper Super Blues Band (blue vinyl pressing) ... LP
Checker/Jackpot, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 22.99
A group that definitely lives up to its name – given that the lineup features the Chess Records stalwarts Bo Diddley, Howlin Wolf, and Muddy Waters! The set's maybe a bit more in the mode of Wolf or Waters than some of Bo's own records – although there's a bit of that riffing spark of his at times – and the tracks are often nice and long, with more than enough room to make you feel like Phil Chess gave these guys plenty of space in the studio to hang out, and find the right way to interact. As much as we love Chess albums with short songs and a soulful punch, we really appreciate it when they can break format and open up on a session like this – which really helps create a unique moment on record! Titles include "Goin Down Slow", "Long Distance Call", "Sweet Little Angel", "Ooh Baby & Wrecking My Love Life", and "Spoonful". LP, Vinyl record album

Etta JamesAt Last (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Argo/Chess/Jackpot, 1960. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
An amazing step forward for the young Etta James – a singer who was delivering a raw, shouting form of R&B just a few years before – but who here ascends into soul music heaven with her famous work on the album! The title cut is the stuff of legend – played and played, again and again over the years – but the whole record's wonderful, and handled with this new level of soul sophistication by arranger Riley Hampton – the great Chicago talent who'd reach similar heights in his charts for singers that include Lorez Alexandria and Walter Jackson. Hampton's dark use of strings brings out a whole new side of James' brilliance – a quality that raised Etta James up out of the R&B ghetto, and forever put her into the legions of legendary 60s soul stars! Titles include the perennial classic "At Last", plus "All I Could Do Was Cry", "Tough Mary", "Sunday Kind Of Love", "Anything To Say You're Mine", and "Trust In Me". Includes 4 bonus tracks – "My Heart Cries", "Spoonful", "It's A Crying Shame", and "If I Can't Have You". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ken Kesey/Grateful DeadAcid Test (pink vinyl pressing) ... LP
Jackpot, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $20.99 29.99
A fantastic 60s happening committed to record – one of the famous "acid tests" by Ken Kesey – recorded over the span of 14 hours, and condensed to the space of a single album – featuring early work by The Grateful Dead, plus tape loops, harmonica solos, and lots of weird wordplay too! This is the kind of thing that had us scared to death of west coast hippies when we were kids – and for good reason, too – as the album really shows the depths of the mind when exposed like this – and almost has us thinking that despite any outdated aesthetics of the period, there's kind of a creepy power of magick lurking far below.

Ennio MorriconeExorcist II – The Heretic (florescent green vinyl pressing) ... LP
Warner/Jackpot, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 29.99
The actual film was weaker than the first Exorcist movie, but the soundtrack's a great one – a wonderful Ennio Morricone score, right up there with his better-known classics of the 70s! Some tracks have a full, sweeping style that's sublime – that compressed Morricone approach to orchestrations that nobody else could touch – a redemptive sound which is then mixed with some much darker elements underneath – including some rough percussion, spooky voices, and other earthy touches that really stir things up. In fact, the overall effect of the record might scare you a lot more than the film – especially if you played it alone at home, late at night, with the lights off, and your head spinning round! Titles include "Great Bird Of The Sky", "Little Afro-Flemish Mass", "Regan's Theme", "Pazuzu", "Night Flight", and "Exorcism". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Willie NelsonAnd Then I Wrote (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Liberty/Jackpot, 1962. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 19.99
Incredible early work from Willie Nelson – quite different from his outlaw material of the 70s, but equally compelling in its own sort of way! As you'd guess from the title and cover, the set came out at a time when Willie was a real up-and-coming songwriting in country music – responsible for hits for artists like Faron Young, Patsy Cline, and others – and finally given the chance to start as a singer on his own. Willie's style is as amazing as his songs – very different than the mainstream, and often inflected with plenty of jazz – which, for some odd reason, as wonderful as it sounds, is what also kept Nelson away from stardom for most of the 60s. Yet don't let that put you off at all, as the presentation of the material is sublime – completely personal, almost heartbreaking, and still with all those charms that most of the rest of the world didn't discover with Willie for another decade or so. Titles include "Funny How Time Slips Away", "Crazy", "Mr Record Man", "One Step Beyond", "Wake Me When It's Over", "The Part Where I Cry", "Hello Walls", and "Darkness On The Face Of The Earth".

Mustafa OzkentGenclik Ile Elele (Hand In Hand With Youth) ... LP
Jackpot, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 19.99
Insane grooves from arranger Mustafa Ozkent – an artist who was to Turkey what Lalo Schifrin was to the US in the 70s! Like Lalo, Mustafa had a great ear for mixing funkier rhythms and fuller orchestrations – often with odd instrumental twists and turns that bubble over with a fair bit of electricity over heavy percussion – kind of in an Incredible Bongo Band way, but with some moogier touches overall! The record's an instrumental masterpiece through and through – filled with enough heavy breaks to satisfy even the pickiest crate-digger, but also the more complicated arrangements to appeal to fans of funky 70s soundtracks! Titles include "Uskudar", "Burcak", "Dolana", "Carsamba", "Lorke", "Ayas", "Emmioglu", and "Karadir". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sun RaSpace Is The Place (blue vinyl pressing) ... LP
Blue Thumb/Jackpot, 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $20.99 21.99
A brilliant record by Sun Ra & The Arkestra – and an album that forever gave them a slogan to live by! The record's different than some of the other Arkestra work from the time – in that it's a bit tighter and more spiritual, more in keeping with the style of the Blue Thumb label, for which it was recorded – and soaring along on a wave of post-Coltrane spiritual jazz enthusiasm. Side one features the ultimate recording of "Space Is The Place" – an anthemic tune that blends chanting, modal rhythms, and some incredibly soulful solo work – making for one of the Arkestra's most perfectly realized tunes! That gem runs for over 20 minutes – and other shorter tracks on the album include "Discipline", "Images", "Sea Of Sound", and "Rocket Number Nine". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition transparent blue vinyl pressing!)

✨✧ SeicheDemo Press ... LP
Jackpot, 1979. New Copy ... $20.99 27.99
The "demo press" here gives it all away – as the record was never intended for formal release – and instead was a self-produced project by the musicians and the producer! The set was recorded at the end of the 70s, but has a vibe that's very different than most of the music from that time – progressive, but in a casual way – as befits the trio's look on the cover – a group that features Marc Levinson on drums, Tom Vess on bass, and Steve Zahradnik on guitar – with vocals from the latter two. All tracks are original, and handled with impeccable instrumentation – the sort that some major label would have taken, polished up, and made some clunky early 80s crossover record – but which is much more pure here. Titles include "Evidently Me", "Islands", "Dissonant Toys", "Medicine Man", "Good Mourning", and "In The Calm Of Your Eye". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes poster and download with the extra track "Larks' Tongues In Aspic Pt 2"!)

✨✧ Silver ApplesContact (blue, white & black swirl vinyl pressing) ... LP
Kapp/Jackpot, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $20.99 23.99
The incredible second album from Silver Apples – even more mad, more trippy, and more space rock than the first! The tunes are all awash in fuzziness – mad guitars, distorted vocals, and rough electronics coming into play with a bit of banjo and some stark, stiff percussion that makes the whole thing have a bit of a groove at times! The sound is otherworldly and incredible – hugely influential upon a generation of 90s popsters, but even better than any of the imitations they've spawned over the years! Titles include "You & I", "Water", "Ruby", "I Have Known Love", and "Confusion". LP, Vinyl record album

Silver ApplesSilver Apples (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Kapp/Jackpot, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $20.99 21.99
A groundbreaking set from The Silver Apples – one of those records that almost didn't get fully appreciated until many decades later! The sound here is quite unique, even for the late 60s psych rock underground – and The Apples work in a blend of spacey electronics, driving percussion, and simple, stark guitar parts – a sound that's almost to their generation what the music of Suicide was to the underground of a decade later. Most tunes pulsate with an almost organic sort of quality, and the lyrics of the songs are often quite tuneful at times – a nice contrast to some of the colder styles of the instrumentation. The album's had a huge influence on countless groups in the past decade or so – for good reasons – and titles include "Oscillations", "Lovefingers", "Velvet Cave", "Whirly-Bird", "Dust", "Misty Mountain", "Program", and "Dancing Gods". LP, Vinyl record album

Wild TchoupitoulasWild Tchoupitoulas ... LP
Island/Jackpot, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $20.99 21.99
A great slice of New Orleans soul from the 70s – a record that replicates the "Indian" culture in the Mardi Gras scene – and which is most notable for featuring work by The Meters as well! The groove here is kind of Meters-styled funk, mixed with some fuller New Orleans mode – as the core Wild Tchoupitoulas group get a nice kick at the core – which makes their lyrics and calls come off even better than in a live setting! The album also gets kickass production from Allen Toussaint and Marshall Sehorn – and is one of the crowning funk jewels in Toussaint's crown for the 70s. Tracks include "Brother John", "Indian Red", "Hey Hey", "Hey Mama", "Meet De Boys On The Battlefront", and a version of "Hey Pocky Way". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Martin DennyExotica (mono) ... LP
Liberty/Jackpot, 1957. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The birth of a sound and the birth of a legend – Martin Denny's first album in the Exotica series, and a record so great it named an entire genre! Denny certainly didn't invent the tropical style of easy listening that came to be known as "exotica" in the 50s – but with a record like this, he delivered the goods better than anyone else – by taking away all the too-sweet styles of Hawaiian music, and serving up a stripped-down, jazzy kind of sound! The album features Denny's classic original quartet – with Arthur Lyman on vibes and Augie Colon on bongos – and titles include "Stone God", "Jungle Flower", "Busy Port", "Lotus Land", and his hit recording of "Quiet Village".

✨✧ West Coast Pop Art Experimental BandWest Coast Pop Art Experimental Band – Part One (mono) ... LP
Reprise/Jackpot, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The initial uttering from the West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band – a group with a heady sound that definitely lives up to their name! There's less "pop art" going on here than just trippy psych – served up at a level that makes the group one of the best bigger label examples of the style at the time – and definitely a lot more edgey than some of their labelmates on Warner. Jimmy Bowen produced, but really keeps all the edges intact – and titles include the completely insane "Help I'm A Rock" (actually about a rock calling for help!) – plus "Shifting Sands", "1906", "Transparent Day", "Here's Where You Belong", and "If You Want This Love".

✨✧ West Coast Pop Art Experimental BandWest Coast Pop Art Experimental Band – Volume 2 (mono) ... LP
Reprise/Jackpot, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The amazing second album from this ultra-cool group – a set that's even weirder and wilder than their debut! The trio are maybe one of the few who really live up to the farthest expectations of the psych generation – as they're really open to let their minds fly in their choice of lyrics, instrumentation, and overall presentation of the record – which hardly seems the sort to yield any sort of singles at all, even though a few of the tunes are downright catchy! Instead, the whole thing's put forth as a dark statement on late 60s society – with a sound that's as heavy as the subject matter, and not afraid to really pus all the freak and fuzz as far as it can go! Quite surprising, even for the Reprise label – and tracks include "Queen Nymphet", "Tracy Had a Hard Day Sunday", "In the Arena", "Smell of Incense", "Suppose They Gave A War & No One Comes", "Overture Wcpaeb (part 2)", and "Carte Blanche" – which supposedly they were given in recording the album!

Jackpot, 1985. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Vintage live material from Greg Sage and The Wipers – played with that special intensity that made them such a crucial link in the American underground scene of the 80s – even if they didn't always get their due until many years later! There's a sound here that's almost a bridge between earlier Cali punk and some of the work that was beginning to emerge on the Homestead Records scene – imbued with a focus and intensity that's helped it stay relevant over the years, while so many of the group's contemporaries were falling into dated politics or gimmicky modes that quickly got old. Titles include "Window Shop For Love", "D7", "Now Is The Time", "Youth Of America", "Moon Rider", "Think About It", "Potential Suicide", and "Pushing The Experience". LP, Vinyl record album

Mike PedicinHotter Than A Pistol ... CD
Jasmine (UK), 1950s. New Copy ... $15.99 16.99
A huge overview of the early days of saxophonist Mike Pedicin – a player who'd later become part of the Philadelphia International sound in 70s soul – but who here is a dedicated rocker, from a time when the sax was every bit a big part of the new sound as the guitar! The tracks here are mostly small combo sides recorded for a variety of indie labels, plus a few more for RCA – real gems from the time when an energetic cat like Mike could burst out of his local scene in Philly, and cook up a mixture of vocal and instrumental tunes that drew heavily on R&B and jump blues, and which point the way towards rocking sounds to come. The package is the first we've seen to cover this much territory of Pedicin's early years – and features 33 titles that include "Saxi Boogie", "Hey Pop Give Me The Keys", "Disc Jockey's Boogie", "Mmm Boy", "One Potato Two Potato", "The Large Large House", "Jackpot", "Close All The Doors", "I'm Hip", "Mambo Rock", "Devil", "Burnt Toast & Black Coffee", "Closin Out", and "The Dickie Doo".

PioneersGreetings From The Pioneers (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Amalgamated/Doctor Bird (UK), 1968. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99 24.99
The rare first album from a heavenly Jamaican vocal group – the wonderful Pioneers, who have a rock-solid quality here that sounds even better with production from Joe Gibbs! The trio have a way of criss-crossing their vocals in the harmonies that's wonderful – bumping around with all these mellow-stepping grooves that seem to encourage them to stretch things out even more with the rhythms – all in a mode that's lean, lovely, and overflowing with the soulful currents that made this era in Jamaican music so great! Titles include "Me Naw Go A Believe", "You'll Never Get Away", "Shake It Up", "Whip Them", "No Dope Me Pony", "Sweet Dreams", "Jackpot", and "Give Me A Little Loving" – plus two tracks by the Righteous Flames too. PLUS, this 2CD package features a huge amount of bonus tracks – 42 more tracks that feature many other Joe Gibbs rocksteady work – lots more tracks by The Pioneers, plus more from Errol Dunkley, The Mellotones, Jackie Robinson, Lyn Taitt & The Jets, The Spanishites, Neville Hinds, The Royals, Invaders, and many more.

✨✧ English BeatI Just Can't Stop It ... CD
London/Go Feet, 1980. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first album from The English Beat – and not only is it one of the most essential of the English ska revival era of the late 70s and early 80s – it's one the most enduring records of 1980 in any genre! The English Beat, like the best of their peers, used ska and rocksteady inspiration to fuel their own contemporary UK sound – and it sounds great to this day! The rhythms and tighter and punchier here than on later records, with some pop, mod and soul lacing their songwriting and vocals, too. A landmark! Includes "Mirror In The Bathroom", "Hands Off. . .She's Mine", "Twist & Crawl", "Big Shot", "Best Friend", "Jackpot" and more. CD
(Still sealed.)
