✨✧ Khan JamalCool ... CD
Porter, 1989. Used ... $7.99
A late 80s set from Khan Jamal – filled with sharp tones on the vibes, and delivered with a really striking sound overall! Khan's definitely at the height of his powers here – playing the vibes with a sense of soul and majesty that takes us back to Bobby Hutcherson's initial moments in the 60s – a use of the instrument that's much more powerful than other players, showing its darker sides and more brooding elements. The rest of the group features cello, bass, and drums – and the rhythms are often angular and quite sharp. Titles include "Rhythm Thang", "A Dansk Morn", "Professor BL", "Cool", and "Mrs J's Blues".

Ali Akbar Khan/Ravi Shankar/Ustad Amir KhanPsychedelic India ... CD
El (UK), Late 50s/1960s. New Copy ... $8.99
Classic ragas from Ravi Shankar, Ali Akbar Kahn and Ustad Amir Khan on this compilation from El UK! The earlier material on Psychedelic India predates the psychedelic rock movement by nearly a decade, but the trance inducing sitar atmosphere is obviously an important precursor, and always amazing and worth revisiting! Although the set features just 4 pieces, they're long ones – 79 minutes of music: Includes "Raga Palas Kafi" and "Raga Bilashkani Todi" featuring Ravi Shankar on sitar and Ali Akbar Khan on sarod, "Raga Marwa" by Ustad Amir Khan", plus Ravi Shankar's "Raga Madhu-Kauns".

Chaka KhanNaughty ... LP
Warner, 1980. Very Good+ ... $3.99
A great album of mellow modern soul tracks recorded in Chaka's post-Rufus years! The record was produced by the great Arif Mardin, the man who made so many of the 70s Atlantic soul records work so well – and he handled Chaka's voice with a sweet sweet sound that you don't always get on her other albums. Includes the great "Papillon", her remake of "Hot Butterfly", plus "Move Me No Mountain", "So Naughty", "Too Much Love", and "Clouds". LP, Vinyl record album

RufusRufus Featuring Chaka Khan ... CD
MCA/Universal (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $9.99
Great work by one of the archetypal funky soul bands of the 70s – and a group whose impact is still being felt today! Of course, one of the reasons for that is Chaka Khan's incredible vocals – caught here at a prime early point, and very nicely set against some warm electric keyboards and tight groovy guitars – which provide a groove that's live and spontaneous, and never too forced – just the right kind of energy to work perfectly with her approach to the lyrics, without any of the too-polished modes you'd fine from copycat groups trying to fake a sound like this. Rufus had been with Chaka for years by this point – fusing together a sublime blend of funk, soul, jazz, and rock – a sound they forged woodshedding in Chicago in the early days, let loose in perfect studio territory on the west coast of the 70s. The whole thing's a classic – and titles include "Jive Talking", "Sweet Thing", "Fools Paradise", "Circle", "Everybody Has An Aura", and "On Time". CD

MCA/Universal (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... Around May 13, 2015
By the time of this release, Chaka's name had supplanted that of Rufus on the marquee – but the record's still very much in the band's classic jazzy soul style, with a production tip that's perhaps a bit larger than usual. Clare Fischer and Seawind help out on the arrangements – and tracks include "Street Player", "Stranger To Love", "Turn", "Change Your Ways", "Take Time", "Turn", and "Best Of Your Heart". CD

✨✧ Steve KhanBlue Man (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Columbia/Sony (Japan), 1978. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A blue man, without his group – and a sweet 70s fusion set from guitarist Steve Khan! The set's got that best Columbia Records groove from the time – a sound that could easily cross over to fusion fans on both sides of the tracks – those who dig soulful undercurrents, thanks to the album's keyboards from Don Grolnick – and those who might like a bit more rockish-lines, thanks to Khan's raspy edge on his guitar. Things never get too jamming, and there's a nice sense of space that definitely helps keep the soul of the record intact – on tracks that include "Some Downtime", "Daily Bulls", "Daily Valley", and "The Little Ones".

✨✧ Khan JamalDrum Dance To The Motherland ... CD
Dogtown/Eremite, 1972. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A rare early session from vibist Khan Jamal – recorded with his Philly-based Creative Arts Ensemble collective! The group follows strongly in the spirit of similar combos from Chicago and St Louis – particularly the latter – and Jamal's group is working here in a mode that's initiated by the original sonic experiments of the AACM, but taken to deeper, more organic levels. Given Khan's later work, the thing that's most surprising here is the sound texture of the record – because although seemingly improvised, there's also a greater feel towards a whole here – a spacey, ethereal quality that reminds us of some of Sun Ra's most creative moments. Jamal plays vibes, marimba, and clarinet – and the rest of the group includes Monette Sudler on guitar and percussion, Alex Ellison on drums, Dwight James on drums and clarinet, and Billy Mills on both electric and acoustic bass. Although not overly electric, there's a shimmering quality to the music here – as if the production abstracted the original acoustic sound with weird echo and other techniques! Titles include "Inner Peace", "Drum Dance", "Cosmic Echoes", and "Breath Of Life". CD

✨✧ Steve KhanTightrope/Blue Man/Arrows ... CD
Columbia/BGO (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A trio of classics from Steve Khan – all brought together in a single package! First up is Tightrope – beautiful fusion from guitarist Steve Khan – one of those great 70s players who could play things tight, yet still keep an edge! The album's got a well-produced groove – the same sort of soulful undercurrent you'd get in other Columbia fusion sets of the period – yet Khan's guitar has a bit more rasp than most, less of the sanded-down, clean-toned notes that you'd get from some of his contemporaries. Bob James produced, and you can certainly hear his ear on some of the keyboard parts – especially the sweet Fender Rhodes, handled by both James and Don Grolnick. Titles include "Some Punk Funk", "Darlin Darlin Baby", "The Big Ones", "Star Chamber", "Tightrope", and "Soft Summer Breeze". Next up is Blue Man – a sweet 70s fusion set from guitarist Steve Khan! The set's got that best Columbia Records groove from the time – a sound that could easily cross over to fusion fans on both sides of the tracks – those who dig soulful undercurrents, thanks to the album's keyboards from Don Grolnick – and those who might like a bit more rockish-lines, thanks to Khan's raspy edge on his guitar. Things never get too jamming, and there's a nice sense of space that definitely helps keep the soul of the record intact – on tracks that include "Some Downtime", "Daily Bulls", "Daily Valley", and "The Little Ones". Arrows is the last in a classic trilogy of late 70s fusion albums that Steve Khan cut for Columbia records – and a set that really has him bringing his sound together in a wonderful way! Khan was working with Steely Dan on the Gaucho album at the time of the recordings – testified by Donald Fagan's notes to the record – and he really seems to have picked up their large overall musical vision, that way of making things perfect, but never in a slick style – working here with other fusion giants who include Don Grolnick on Fender Rhodes, Michael Brecker on tenor and soprano sax, and Randy Brecker on trumpet – plus lots of great drums from Steve Gadd. Titles include the extended "City Suite", plus "Candles", "Daily Village", "Calling", and "Some Arrows". CD

Cherries, 2012. New Copy ... $6.99
Guess what? They DO make 'em like they used to – as Amalia steps out here on two tracks that easily rival the best female soul from the early 80s! "Welcome To Me" feels just like Chaka Khan on Warner Brothers from 1982 – complete with sweet keyboards that percolate wonderfully alongside the soaring lead vocals! "Bonafide" is even better – a funky funky number with a really partyful groove right from the start – romping in a wonderful 80s way! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Arista All StarsBlue Montreux ... CD
Arista (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
A sweet session of 70s electric jazz – recorded as a unique live all-star outing by a group of Arista's best jazz players at the time! The group's an octet, but plays together in differing formations throughout the record – with Warren Bernhardt on keyboards, Michael Brecker on saxes, Randy Brecker on trumpet, Steve Jordan on drums, Steve Khan and Larry Coryell on guitars, Tony Levin on bass, and Mike Maineri on vibes – the last of which really make for some of the best numbers on the album! Bernhardt's keyboards are pretty good too – stepping out with a spacious, fluid feel that's never jamming – and more in the open-ended Bob James side of the spectrum, although his overall sound is a lot different than Bob's! Titles include "Blue Montreux", "Rocks", "I'm Sorry", "Magic Carpet", "Buds", "Floating", and "The Virgin & The Gypsy". CD

Beastie Boys, LL Cool J, Kurtis Blow, & OthersKrush Groove (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner/Perseverance, 1985. New Copy ... $13.99 19.99
Not quite the Wild Style soundtrack, but still an early hip hop cinema classic – thanks to work from some of the bigger acts of the time! The movie's from a second generation of rap filmmaking – more narrative, less documentary – but over the course of years, the whole thing's come to stand as a great document of this moment in music – and in super-fresh style as well! Hip Hop tracks include "She's On It" by Beastie Boys, "I Can't Live Without My Radio" by LL Cool J, "If I Ruled The World" by Kurtis Blow, "All You Can Eat" by Fat Boys, and "Krush Groovin" by the Krush Groove All-Stars – which features Run-DMC, Fat Boys, Kurtis Blow, and Sheila E! Soul titles include "Krush Groove" by Chaka Khan, Love Triangle" by Gap Band, and "Tender Love" by Force MDs – and Debbie Harry shows her street soul chops on "Feel The Spin". CD features bonus 12" remixes of "Feel The Spin" by Debbie Harry and "Krush Groove" by Chaka Khan. CD

Mario BiondiSun ... CD
Sony, 2013. New Copy ... $8.99 13.98
The sun shines brightly on Mario Biondi – really making this record sparkle with a charm that goes way beyond Mario's previous albums – a quality that's less retro than before, and which shows Biondi as a growing soul star with really universal appeal! There's still some of the old school jazz in the mix that we love from Mario's Schema work – but the album's also got a fuller production style at times, one that really expands the palette of Biondi's colors, and which has him working here with help from key guests who include Omar, Leon Ware, Al Jarreau, Incognito, and Chaka Khan – and even a bit of organ from the James Taylor Quartet! Jean-Paul "Bluey" Maunick helped co-write a good number of tracks on the set – and titles include "Shine On", "Come To Me", "Woman Woman", "What Have You Done To Me", "Never Stop", "La Voglia La Pazzia L'Idea", "Girl Blue", "Light To The World", and "Catch The Sunrise".

✨✧ Brecker BrothersBack To Back ... LP
Arista, 1976. Very Good Gatefold ... $1.99
Soulful fusion from The Brecker Brothers – a set that's one of their standout efforts from the 70s – and a record that went onto influence a whole generation of jazz musicians too! The album features the twin horns of Randy & Michael Brecker, along with alto by David Sanborn, keyboards by Don Grolnick, and guitar by Steve Khan – but one of the things that really makes the album great is the vocal arrangements, which were handled by Luther Vandross, who also sings on the album along with Patti Austin! The set's got a great soulful feel – with some wonderful mellow groovers that have a sweet 70s sound – titles that include "Lovely Lady", "Night Flight", "Slick Stuff", "What A Miracle Can Do", "I Love Wastin Time With You", "Keep It Steady", "Grease Piece", and "Dig A Little Deeper".

Arista/Wounded Bird, 1976. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
Funky fusion with some really hard-ripping guitar from Larry Coryell – a mainstream masterpiece from the Eleventh House ensemble! The set's got a tight sound that puts Coryell's guitar in the forefront, but which also respects contributions from members that include Gerry Brown on drums, John Lee on bass, Mike Mandel on keyboards, and Terumasa Hino on trumpet – all coming together with a tightness that's every bit the best part of mainstream 70s fusion. The record's also got some great guest work too – including appearances from David Sanborn on alto, Michael Brecker on tenor, Randy Brecker on trumpet, and Steve Khan on acoustic guitar – and titles include "Titus", "Pyramids", "Yin Yang", "Aspects", "Ain't It Is", and "Woman Of Truth & Future".

Masaru ImadaTropical Sunset (Japanese paper sleeve edition with bonus tracks) ... CD
Full House/Think (Japan), Early 80s. New Copy ... $28.99
A really lovely album from pianist Masaru Imada – a set that has some elements of the great Japanese fusion scene of the time, but a record that also has some warmer more acoustic moments too! Imada does a great job of balancing between upbeat groovers and some more personal, lyrical songs – and although he plays a bit of keyboards, most of his work is on acoustic piano – in a lineup of players that also includes Grovewr Washington Jr on soprano sax, Steve Khan or Kazumi Watanabe on guitar, Michael Brecker on tenor, David Sanborn on alto, and either Steve Gadd or Steve Jordan on drums. There's some great interplay between the American and Japanese players – and titles include a version of Azymuth's "Carnival", plus "Morning Dream", "Blue Marine", "Secret Sounds", "Jumpin Dolphin", and "Andalusian Breeze". CD features bonus tracks "Morning Dance" and "Mermaid Princess". CD

Chubby JacksonOoh What An Outfit – New York 1949 ... CD
Uptown, 1949. New Copy 2 CDs ... $20.99 24.98
A marvelous document of the power of bassist Chubby Jackson at his best – served up here in a double-length package of rare recordings from the end of the 40s! Chubby has a really unique place in jazz – a special space between bop and swing, where he was able to work with some of the best players of his generation – and help forge an audience for the modern tones of the newer music by bringing in some of the more powerful elements of the old! This quality really comes through in the initial batch of big band recordings in the package, which take up most of CD1 – tunes that echo some of the work Jackson had done with Woody Herman's group in the late 40s, but arguably even more hard-biting and boppish – with strong work from Frank Socolow on alto, Teddy Charles on vibes, Ray Turner and Al Young on tenor, and the trio of Norman Faye, Al Porcino, and Charlie Walp on trumpets. Arrangements are by drummer Tiny Khan for the big band sides – and the set also features smaller ensemble work with Gene Roland's Boppers, led by trumpeter Gene Roland – plus work by the quintet of vibist Joe Roland with singer Paula Castle. The set also features a very cool combo recorded in Sweden – Chubby Jackson's Fifth Dimensional Jazz Group – with Conte Candoli on trumpet, Terry Gibbs on vibes, Lou Levy on piano, and Frank Socolow on tenor. The whopping package features 2CDs, 37 tracks – and mixes together live tracks, radio broadcasts, and some rare recording sessions too. CD

CBS, 1987. Very Good+ ... $2.99
A great later album from the Juicy duo – very much in the tightly grooving mode of their debut, thanks to continued production work by Deodato! The style's smooth, focused, and sharp-edged – but all without sounding too chart-oriented or clunky – and although the beats are electric, and supported with plenty of keyboards, there's a nice sense of warmth to the record overall – a key hallmark of Deodato's sensitivity in the studio. All tracks are originals by the Juicy team of Jerry and Katreese Barnes, and guests on the record include Chaka Khan and Bernard Wright. Titles include "Make You Mine", "All Work No Play", "Show & Tell", "After Loving You", "Private Party", "Serious", and "Midnight Love". LP, Vinyl record album

Max RoachSpeak, Brother, Speak ... CD
Fantasy/OJC, 1962. Used ... $8.99
Solidly righteous jazz from the Max Roach of the 60s – recorded at a time when the player was really breaking away from his straighter hardbop roots, and delving deeper into more freely soulful jazz expression! The record only features 2 long tracks – each a side apiece – played by Max with a quartet that includes Clifford Jordan on tenor, Eddie Khan on bass, and Mal Waldron on piano. Jordan really takes off on the album – demonstrating a great ability for long blowing and creative exploration that was only hinted at on his other studio sessions at the time, and which really points the way towards some of his freer-thinking records of the 70s. Waldron is great too – bringing in some nicely darker colors that really help to round out the sound. Titles include "Speak Brother Speak" and "A Variation". CD

Rufus without Chaka Khan – but a surprisingly nice set, nonetheless! The album features various members of the group on lead vocals – singing in a warm, compressed style that's got the same sort of AOR sound as the group's jazzy grooves at the time. The overall musicianship is still quite nice – a commercial take on jazz funk, but played to perfection, thanks to the tightness of the ensemble. Titles include the instrumental "Red Hot Poker", plus "Dancin Mood", "Don't You Sit Alone", "Bet My Dreams", "Pleasure Dome", and "Life In The City". LP, Vinyl record album

Great later work from Rufus – working here without Chaka Khan on vocals, but sounding even jazzier as a result! There almost seems to be more emphasis on the instrumentation than before – and the album's got a warmly funky groove that definitely carries on the 70s Rufus tradition, but cleans things up a bit for the 80s generation – especially lean on the rhythms and the keyboards! Tony Maiden and David Wolinski handle the vocals, often in a compressed way that's mixed right down in the music – but the real charm here comes from the rhythms and the sweet jazzy licks in the grooves. Titles include "Tonight We Love", "Can I Show You", "What Is It", "Afterwards", "We Got The Way", "Party Til You're Broke", "Love Is Taking Over", and "Secret Love". LP, Vinyl record album

Ravi ShankarLife In Music ... CD
El (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $8.99
Not the whole life of Ravi Shankar in music – and instead, a really cool concentration of work from one of his greatest periods ever – that magical late 50s/early 60s moment when he was completely transforming the sound of Indian music, and beginning to have an influence on the wider world as well! Most of the numbers here are long ragas, played in that complicated rhythmic style that made Shankar so great – and most numbers are quite extended, all going well over 10 minutes, and a few even pushing close to the half hour mark as well. One title – "Raga Palas Kafi" – features work with Ali Akbar Khan – and other titles include "Raga Jog", "Dhun In Mishra Mand", "Raga Rageshri", "Raga Desi", "Raga Charu Keshi", "Misra Piloo", and "Raga Ahir Bhairav".

Concord, 2005. Used ... $2.99
A well-titled set, given that the album is Soulive's first away from the Blue Note label – a surprisingly tight outing done for the mostly-mellow Concord imprint, and a real back-to-basics outing that we totally love! The group's in fine fine form for the record – working with that core classic intensity that we first loved way back in their indie years – an approach that's gotten a bit too overly jamming or muddled up on other records, and which is presented here in a nicely stripped-down approach that only adds in a bit of extra guest work from time to time. Reggie Watts, Chaka Khan, and Ivan Neville all make appearances on the record – but honestly, what we still love best is the record's core grooving from the trio of Evans, Krasno, and Evans. Hate the cover, though – but whaddayagonnado? Titles include some great short "Interlude" tracks, plus "Got Soul", "Reverb", "Break Out", "She's Hooked", "Freedom", "What Can You Do", "Vapor", and "Take It Easy". CD

There's 2 nice groovers – "Chicken & Dumplins" and "Ray's Idea" – plus the nice vibes track "The Return Of Ghengis Khan". Very very groovy, and a great record that shows Bobby moving way past his Jazz Messengers roots! LP, Vinyl record album

The album's a jazz set, but tracks are relatively short – and focus more on ensemble passages at points, but still allow for key solo work from Dave Grusin on piano, Jerome Richardson on alto, Marvin Stamm on trumpet, Steve Khan on guitar, Toots Thielemans on harmonica, and Sunny Burke on Fender Rhodes. Titles include a great version of his "Bob Newhart Theme" – quite different than the one used in the show – plus the cuts "Barrio", "Blue Light", "Lou Grant Theme", "Sail On", and "Come On & Shine".

Classic club and soulful disco, all brought together in service of the lasting memory of Larry Levan – legendary DJ at the Paradise Garage, and a key force in shaping the sound of the dancefloor for years to come! The set features some material presented in special Larry Levan mixes, plus others pulled from rare 12" singles back in the day – and together the whole thing makes for a great collection of grooves from the left end of the spectrum – a great antidote to popular disco at the end of the 70s, and proof that the creative sound of the dancefloor was still burning strong! 2CD set features a total of 22 tracks – surprisingly well collected for anything with the Rhino name on it, and including "Love Has Come Around (12" version)" by Donald Byrd & 125th Street NYC, "Lover's Holiday (12" version)" by Change, "It Should Have Been You (12" voc)" by Gwen Guthrie, "Ain't No Mountain High Enough (garage version)" by Inner Life, "Why Leave Us Alone (12" long version)" by Five Special, "Lost In Music (1984 Niles Rodgers rmx)" by Sister Sledge, "Baby I'm Scared Of You" by Womack & Womack, "You Can't Hide" by David Joseph, "Bad For Me (12" long version)" by Dee Dee Bridgewater, "Smack Dab In The Middle" by Janice McClain, "We Got The Funk (12" US re-edit)" by Poisitive Force, "Haven't You Heard" by Patrice Rushen, "Weekend (12" extended)" by Phreek, "Clouds" by Chaka Khan, "Love Injection" by Trussel, "Can't Play Around (12" vocal)" by Lace, and "Heartbeat (club)" by Taana Gardner.

The first part in Burnt Sugar's 2001 trilogy – a darkly jamming effort that's located somewhere at the "intersection of Stockhausen and Shorter"! The guitars are very strongly in the lead on this one – sounding almost like a Glen Branca-driven jamband, as Vernon Reid, Rene Akhan, Morgan Michael Craft, and Kirk Douglass jam like mad, and create dark waves of sound with a slightly soulful edge. Titles include "The Sirens Return", "Screamin Arthur Zafa", "Castles Made Of Sand", and "Two Bass Blipsch". CD

Jack MontroseBlues & Vanilla ... LP
RCA, 1956. Very Good+ ... $13.99
A standout session from Jack Montrose – one of the most overlooked players on the west coast scene of the 50s! Montrose's tenor work is always a treat, but here, he's playing in an unusual setting that includes Red Norvo on vibes, Joe Maini on alto sax, and Jim Hall on guitar – all working with Jack on a set of tunes that have the tight arrangements of his work on Atlantic and Pacific Jazz – yet which also open up with some interesting instrumental twists that break the mold a bit! Side one of the set features the 18 minute tune "Concertino Do Camera" – a nicely extended track that offers plenty of room for solo work – and the other shorter tracks still offer up strong solos too – on titles that include "Bernie's Tune", "A Dandy Line", "Bockhanal", and "For The Fairest". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ King Curtis & The KingpinsDock Of The Bay/This Is Soul ... 7-inch
Atco, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
"Dock of the Bay" is a so-so instrumental version of Otis' big hit – but the real charmer is "This Is Soul". The cut's a slow instrumental, with a monologue by King over the top – rapping about soul, its nature, and who has it and who doesn't. The whole thing's very wrapped up in the discourse of soul politics that were going on a lot at the end of the 60s – as the use of the word "soul" was being pushed in music, and used by many (ofay and friend alike) as a backhanded way to imply racial identity in cultural production. 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Promo. Label has a sticker.)

✨✧ Hugh MasekelaEmancipation Of Hugh Masekela (top hat cover) ... LP
Uni, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Hugh's first album for Uni – and one that really lets him open up his groove! The record moves way past the short trumpet instrumental sound of earlier albums – into a complex groove that mixes Afro soul, LA funk, and loads of nice jazzy bits! The record's got a sound that's nicely messed up – and which shows the crossroads of modern music that passed through Hugh during his best moments. Includes a great version of "What Is Wrong With Groovin?" (different than the Letta Mbulu version!), plus "Sqo", "Child Of Earth", "Ha Lese Le Di Khanna", "Chisa", and "Why Are You Blowing My Mind?". Great stuff! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousCalypso Craze (6CD/DVD set) ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), 1956/1957. New Copy 6CD & DVD ... Out Of Stock
A stunning look at the early years of calypso music – not the first rootsy wave of music from the islands, but the second wave that spread across the global mainstream – when Caribbean styles got greater distribution on a host of bigger labels than before, which also led to a number of more popular artists picking up calypso modes as well! This package really runs the full gamut of calypso in the mid 50s – and includes key tracks by originators like The Lion, Lord Invader, Duke Of Iron, Lloyd Thomas, Lord Flea, The Talbot Brothers, Blind Blake, Frank Holder, and others – mixed with stylized remakes by folks who range from Tito Puente to Louis Farrakhan, Robert Mitchum, Eartha Kitt, Hank Snow, Louis Armstrong, The Tarriers, Kingston Trio, Rosemary Clooney, and many more! As always with Bear Family, this set is more than complete – a 6CD treasure trove of music that features 173 tracks that really show the height of the calypso craze in the 50s – plus a bonus DVD with the film Calypso Joe from 1957 – a full length film that's never been issued outside its theatrical release, starring Angie Dickenson and Herb Jeffries, with performances by Duke Of Iron and The Easy Riders. The DVD also features four soundies performances as well – and the whole thing comes with a lavish 172 page, full-color hardcover book that's almost worth the price of admission itself. CD

✨✧ VariousKhana Khana – Funk, Psychedelia, & Pop From The Iranian Pre-Revolution Generation ... CD
Pharaway Sounds, 1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Really tremendous stuff – and kind of a genre-defining compilation – one that will ship our listening for years to come! We've heard a bit of 70s Iranian music before, but this overstuffed package really opens up our ears – to a range of funky, freaky sounds that go way beyond just the kind of unusual psyche that folks have been passing around for years – and more into the kind of amazing and unreal sounds you might expect to find more in Indian music of the time! As with some Indian cuts, there's a wicked blend of Western funk and Eastern exoticism going on here – while others have a haunting feel that's a bit more regional, especially the vocal numbers – and throughout it all, the set continues to deliver some really wonderful surprises, with a track list that's very well thought out – and supported by great notes too. Titles include "Baanoye Sahar Aavaaz" by Soli, "Jodayee" by Afsar Shahidi, "Nefrin Nameh" by Dariush, "Ki Bood" by Neli, "Gharibaneh" by Beti, "Dokhtar Khoshgel" by Aghassi, "Khana Khana" by Habib Mohebian, "Kavire Del" by Marjan, "Do Ta Cheshmoon" by Mahsati, and "Woman" by Shahram.

✨✧ VariousZendooni – Funk, Psychedelia & Pop From The Iranian Pre-Revolution Generation ... CD
Pharaway Sounds, 1970s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Some of the wildest sounds we've ever heard from Iran – a wealth of wonderful grooves that show that there was plenty happening in that unique scene before the Ayatollah came in and clamped down on Western culture! Styles really intertwine nicely throughout – mixing funk with pop with psych, disco, and even some soundtracky styles that feel a bit Bollywood at points – all coming across with a really cool, groovy, and other-worldly sound that has us loving the whole thing all the way through! The folks at Guerssen have done a great job with the package – adding enough good notes and quality sound to ensure that this one's not just a knockoff – and instead features a great range of well-chosen tracks, put together beautifully. Titles include "Setareh" by Azita, "Aroos Khanom" by Amir Rassaie, "Zandooni" by Farzin, "Bi Vafa" by Kambiz, "Safar" by Hassan Shamaizadeh, "Ey Vatan Iran" by Emad Ram, "Ghebleh" by Nooshafarin, "Gholake Cheshat" by Simin Ghanem, and "Rahgozar" by Morteza.
