Les Tres FemmesListen To Your Mama (voc, inst) ... 7-inch
Phil-LA Of Soul/Jamie, 1969. New Copy (pic cover)... $13.99 15.00
Rare female funk from Philly – a tune by a trio of three great singers who really blow away most of the competition! This isn't girl group soul, but instead some serious bad sister funk – as the vocals really have to compete with the hard funky drums at the core of the tune – which they do wonderfully as Les Tres Femmes step out strongly with the lyrics! The flipside features an instrumental version of the song – which gives you an even better chance to focus on the funky drums! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Limited funky 45 pressing – in a great package, too!)

✨✧ Alfred Newman/Johnny MathisCertain Smile (expanded 2CD version) ... CD
Columbia/La La Land, 1958. Used 2CD ... $17.99
A 50s soundtrack classic – even if it was penned for a film that hasn't stood the test of time very well! Alfred Newman's one of those composers who always brings his a-game to the table – for a big film or small – and his music for this film adaptation of Francoise Sagan's famous book is every bit as great as his scores for larger budget productions of the time! The main theme alone is totally great – offered up here in instrumental and vocal versions – the latter by a young Johnny Mathis, and both of them dripping with just the right amount of sadness for the story. The rest of the music is wonderful too – lush, but not overdone – and with just the right sense of space to keep the orchestrations from getting too bogged down. Titles include "A Certain Smile", "The Market Place", "Farewell To The Sea", "The Riviera", and "Dominique's Decision". But even better, this massive 2CD version features the full album issued in the late 50s – plus the bonus film soundtrack, which comprises an additional 24 tracks, some never issued before! CD

Phil-LA Of Soul, Late 60s. Very Good ... $7.99
A classic! "The Horse" is a great 60s instrumental groover that virtually set the tone for the next 10 years of brass instrumentation in soul music! The cut's got a raw TSU Tornadoes or Bar-Kays kind of feel, with a horn line right up front, in a catchy rolling groove that never quits! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Nelson RiddleBatman (with bonus tracks) ... CD
20th Century/La La Land, 1966. New Copy ... $13.99
One of Nelson Riddle's finest moments of the 60s – the wonderful original soundtrack for the campy full length Batman film! The tunes have a totally excellent blend of the dramatic and the jazzy – often using full orchestrations, but in a tight way that goes for rhythmic passages and tight little themes – all hitting hard with a style that goes "Zap!" "Pow!" "Slam!" The approach is a fair bit like the crime jazz of the Henry Mancini generation, but has a bit more swing and pop – as you'd guess from the comic book source material. The CD features 29 original instrumental tracks all from the film (6 more than the previous CD reissue) – plus 3 bonus tracks that includes a few other little bits not by Riddle – all packaged with a 20 page booklet that's got lots of vivid images from the movie! 31 tracks in all – with titles that include "Flee For Your Life", "Dehydrated", "Batmobile To Airport", "Good Job", "Roger Wilco", "The Grotto", "Small Craft", "Batman Theme", and "Fine Finkish Friends".

Lalo Schifrin, Don Ellis, Jerry Fielding, & OthersMission Impossible – The Television Scores (6CD set) ... CD
La La Land, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 6CD ... $79.99
An amazing package of music – not just the original two albums of Lalo Schifrin music that were issued from the Mission Impossible TV show – but a massive 6CD collection that brings together work from all seven seasons of the program – a huge amount of material that's never been issued to the public at all, by a range of composers we never even knew worked for the show! Over the years, the spirit of Schifrin's original style was greatly expanded – still with groovy cop and crime modes that mature nicely into the 70s, but also with some richer soundtrack elements that really flesh things out – and which take on special character from show to show, depending on the composers! In addition to material by Schifrin, the set also features passages from jazzy talents who include Jerry Fielding, Don Ellis, Benny Golson, and Duane Tatro – as well as contributions from other soundtrack legends like Gerald Fried, Walter Scharf, Jack Urbont, Robert Drasnin, and Richard Hazard – and the whole thing fetaures six very overstuffed CDs – each almost to the brim with music – in a box with an additional booklet of notes!

Chick WillisStoop Down Baby Let Your Daddy See ... LP
La Val, 1972. Near Mint- ... $24.99
A compelling classic of raunchy blues – and a real standout in the indie scene of the 70s! The album features a very unique first side – one that's almost a party record at points, as Chick Willis runs through a live 21 minute take on the title tune – complete with some very raunchy comedy in the middle! Side two has tracks that are a bit shorter, and more standard blues, but still pretty great – and titles on the record include "Something To Remember You By", "Stoop Down Baby", "My Story", "Mother Fuyer", "Sometime Soon", and "This Is My Life".

✨✧ Joe FarrellFarrell's Inferno ... LP
Jazz A La Carte, 1980. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Excellent work by Joe Farrell – recorded after his glory days at CTI, but a totally kick-ass session that's right up there with his classics! The album was recorded live with the Inferno group – a quartet with Victor Feldman on piano, Bob Magnusson on bass, and John Guerin on drums – but the mainstay of the session is Farrell, who's extremely powerful on both tenor and soprano, and also quite lively on flute. There's no real funk numbers on the set, but the jazz component is very strong – and the session has a very high energy level. Titles include "Moon Germs", "Whip It Up", "Dreams", "Let's Go Dancing", and "Invitation". LP, Vinyl record album

A great little groover from Cliff Nobles! Sure, "Switch It On" has the same horn riff as his hit "The Horse" – but it's also got this sinister choppy guitar that really wails away a lot, the drums are nice and loud, and the overall track is a lot funkier than most of his other work! The flip is a decent swing-soul number – done in a Sam Cooke-ish kind of way. 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Keith TippettBlueprint ... CD
La Cooka Ratcha (UK), 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A groundbreaking set from British pianist Keith Tippett – an album of completely improvised material, all-acoustic – and performed with a group that includes Julie Tippett on voice and guitar, Frank Perry on percussion, and Roy Babbington on bass. The album's got a really organic feel – not nearly as free as you might guess from the improvised nature of the work – and more with a fluid, earthy approach that's heavily concerned with sound and spirit, and which reminds us a lot of some of the more challenging early 70s work on Impulse Records. Instrumentation is all acoustic (although the set was oddly produced by Robert Fripp!) – and titles include "Song", "Dance", "Blues I", and "Woodcut". CD

✨✧ VariousPounds Of Soul – Serious Soul Ballads & Beaters From Los Angeles & All Points South ... CD
Kent/Ace (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A treasure trove of lost soul – featuring countless great tracks we'd never heard before, and some killer unissued cuts making their first appearance! The CD focuses on the harder sound of LA's famous Modern Records label – tracks mostly recorded in the late 60s, with a heavy style that showed the changes of the times, and a rougher edge that borrowed a lot from southern artists recording in Memphis, Jackson, & Muscle Shoals. The whole thing's great – like coming across a pile of forgotten singles in the back of a record shop in a small town in Arkansas – and titles include "Funky Way" by Jimmy Bee, "Keep On Forgiving You" by Vernon Garrett, "I Just Love Your Work" by Jeb Stuart, "Fill My Needs" by Millie Foster, "I Wanna Love You" by Joe Haywood, "Satisfied Woman Satisfied Man" by Vernon Garrett, "What You See Is What You're Gonna Get" by Brenda George, "IT's Real (part 2)" by Jimmy Robins, "First Come First Served" by Betty Bibbs, "Without A Love" by Jackie Day, "Georgia Woman" by Freeman King, and "Who Will You Favor" by Tommy Youngblood.

✨✧ VariousRough Guide To Peru Rare Groove ... CD
Rough Guide, 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sweet sounds from the Peruvian scene of the 60s and 70s – music that starts in more familiar Latin modes, then quickly expands to a range of other hip South American sounds! The mix of modes here is maybe similar to the Colombian music of the period – sometimes romping with fast-moving rhythms, sometimes a bit more complicated, in ways that really unlock the jazzier sides of the instrumentation – and which echo some of our favorite New York work of the time. There's a few organ-heavy tracks that are especially great – and the package is put together by Pablo Yglesias, who's done some other great sets of this nature. Titles include "Lamparita" by Los Compadres Del Ande, "Lluvia Con Nieve/El Molestoso" by Carlos Pickling Y Su Organo Espacial, "Lobos Al Escape" by Andres De Colbert Y Su Orquesta, "La Palmadita" by Los Blacanguay, "Son Con Boogaloo" by Pedro Miguel Y Sus Maracaibos, "Tambores De La Selva" by Juaneco Y Su Combo, and "Nuestro Pobreza" by Chacal Y Sus Estrellas.

✨✧ VariousSurinam Funk Force – More Boogie & Disco Funk From The Surinamese Dance Floors ... CD
Rush Hour (Netherlands), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A huge range of funky soul cuts from a very surprising source – the nation of Surinam, which didn't earn its independence until the mid 70s – which then seemed to pave the way for a big wave of wonderful music like this! The cuts often have a groove that's more northern hemisphere club than you'd expect from the nation's South American locale – and given that the nation was previously under the control of the Dutch, there's a lot of back/forth action here with European sounds, styles, and studios – which results in some great grooves that have a really unique hybrid in their approach! Rhythms are strong, but never too slick – never totally polished, as in a Euro disco mode – and instead maybe feel like some of the best underground New York material of the period – especially the sort that was drawing influence from communities of new immigrants. Some tracks have straightforward vocals, others have more of a group chant vibe – and most cuts have at least one key jazzy element, which really sharpens up the sound. Titles include "Happines" by Errol De La Fuente, "Born To Boogie" by Steve Watson, "Craziest" by Sonny Khoeblal, "The Funky G" by Sumy, "Love Dance" by Eddie Tailor, "Kaseko Attack" by Ronald Snijders, "Jamasa Roro" by Astaria, "Tirsa Song" by Sound Track Orchestra & Silvy, "Jhoom Le" by Cyntia, "Freedom Is The Thing" by Langa Langa, and "Jammin With The Jam Band" by Jam Band 80.

✨✧ VariousSwingbillies – Hillbilly & Western Swing On Modern/Colonial/Flair 1947 to 1952 ... CD
Modern/Ace (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
That's no typo in the title – as the unique phrase "Swingbillies" is a perfect summation of the set – which mixes together rare postwar work from the West Coast scene – cool cuts that are partly western swing, partly early country – and which almost stand as a precursor to the Bakersfield years to come! The music is all from the catalog of Modern Records – an imprint best known for R&B and blues, but one that also really had its ear to the ground for all the new sounds bubbling up in LA after the war – sounds that included a big influx of hillbilly styles that hit the coast in the hands of folks moving westward for jobs and success. Most artists here are relatively obscure, but their work resonates with qualities that both matches the big western swing stars of the period, and some of the excellent early country on Capitol Records – which might be a good comparison to the strength of this set. CD features 28 titles in all – and cuts include "You Just Wait & See" by Chuck Guillory, "Turn That Gun Around" by Rocky Morgan, "Those Wonderful Days With You" by Joe Bean, "I Knew That You Were Foolin All Along" by Jimmie Dolan, "Holiday For Guitar" by Jimmy Bryant, "The Honey Jump (part 1)" by Jody Webb, "Operation Blues" by Homer Clemons, "Big Texas #2" by Papa Cairo, "San Antonio Blues" by Cliff Bruner, and "My Heart Lied To Me" by Ted Shelton.

✨✧ VariousTres Chic – More French Girl Singers Of The 60s ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Groovy gals from 60s France – a power-packed array of Parisian pop nuggets that goes way beyond most other compilations of this nature! Some of the big names are here, but there's way more obscure numbers too – the cool kind of French femmes that made a bit splash during the "yeh yeh" generation, with a mix of the rough and the sweet that few other girl singers could ever hope to touch! There's a really special mod sort of energy here – vocals that push out strongly, yet never succumb to emotional cliches of American and British singers – and backings that are always tight and groovy, but in a jaunty, jerky way that's quite different than straight ahead rock. The mix of modes is completely sublime – just the sort of music that still really sends us after all these years – and titles include "J'Ai Des Problemes Decidement" by Violaine, "Hymne Au Soleil" by Pussy Cat, "Attends Ou Va-T'En" by France Gall, "Tomorrow Is Another Day" by Gillian Hills, "Bravo" by Jacqueline Taieb, "Pas De Taxi" by Annie Philippe, "La Fermeture Eclair" by Delphine, "Les Paillons Noirs" by Michele Arnaud, "Comme Tu Es Jeune" by Liz Brady, "Sous Le Soleil Exactement" by Anna Karina, and "Ecoutez" by Elsa.

Wonderwheel, 2016. New Copy 2 x 7 inch Gatefold (pic cover)... Out Of Stock
A sweet take on the Turntables On The Hudson series – presented by Nickodemus with a nice sense of Latin in the mix! The music here all resonates with that new wave of 21st Century club that started to draw in elements from Puerto Rico, Cuba, and other points sunny and south – and the music is by a great selection of artists from the funky underground, some of whom appear on each other's tracks here – which gives a further sort of unified vibe to the music. This double 7" package features four titles – "Rive" by DJ Jigue Y Tumba Francesa La Caridad De Oriente, "Aguacero" by Captain Planet with Chico Mann, "Pale Mal" by Poirier with Fwonte, "La Cuidad De La Eterna Primavera" by Corrado Bucci & Los Corraleros. 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ VariousVenezuela 70 – Cosmic Visions Of A Latin American Earth – Venezuelan Experimental Rock In The 1970s (with bonus download) ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A completely amazing collection of sounds from the 70s scene in Venezuela – a really un-tapped legacy of fantastically creative music – most of it pretty darn groovy, too! Despite the "rock" in the title, the music here is more in a mix of funky jazz and other creative instrumental styles – a bit of Latin in some of the rhythms, some spiritual currents at other points, and a really rich blend of electric and acoustic instrumentation, with some other offbeat touches too! The music is almost more on the farther side of the spectrum from creative Latin combos in New York or LA at the time – not salsa, but with some salsa currents – not Chicano rock, but with some of those elements too – and maybe some of the better touches of the most experimental groups in Havana, the few who were reaching for a new style at the time. Venezuela was riding high on oil money at the time of these recordings – and there's definitely a sense of creativity for its own sake going on here – especially in some of the more electric moments, which reflect elements we really never would have expected. As always with Soul Jazz, the package is as great as the music – a mini-history lesson in itself – and titles include "Irene" by Aldemaro Romero Y Su Onda Nueva, "Dame De Comer" by Miguel Angel Fuster, "Amor En Llamas" by Pablo Schneider, "Aragueney" by Vytas Brenner, "Joropo No 1" by Grupo CIM, "Panico A Las 5am" by Angel Rada, "San Juan Tambo Y Fuera" by Un Dos Tres Y Fuera, "Ayudame A Encontrar Mi Camino" by Apocalipsis, and "Barcos De Pape" by Fernando Yvosky.

New York Review Of Books, Late 60s/1970s/1980s/1990s/2000s. New Copy ... $8.99 29.95
A fantastic collection of nonfiction work from Renata Adler – a writer we first discovered through her inventive fiction, but one who's got a much greater history as a journalist – including decades of work for the New Yorker and other publications! This huge book brings together some of Adler's best pieces – articles handled with the same key eye and ear as her fiction, especially for the voices of the subjects involved – presented with dialogue that's extremely compelling in many of the works. The book spans the space of decades – and includes Adler on subjects as diverse as prostitution in LA, G Gordon Liddy, Civil Rights in Mississippi, the Six Day War, the Starr Report, violence in film, Biafra, and dozens of others – often snapshots both in history and American cultural struggle, captured beautifully by Adler's prose. The book is 514 pages, hardcover. Book

✨✧ Alessandro AlessandroniBarocco & Romantico (pink vinyl pressing) ... LP
Flipper/Dagored (Italy), 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
The title only partly gives this one away – as sound library genius Alessandro Alessandroni turns towards the world of baroque and romantic music for inspiration – yet also manages to serve up something that's very much his own in the process! This isn't one of those records in which classical compositions get an easy listening spin – and instead, Alessandroni has a way of evoking ancient ideas while still also using lots of groovy Italian soundtrack modes – a bit like the way the occasional baroque theme or electric harpsichord would turn up in some groovy 60s film scores. Both of those elements appear here, alongside other keyboards, some acoustic guitar, and other instrumentation – used in a way that's as evocative as some of Alessandro's film work. Titles include "Sonata Allegra", "Canzone Romantica", "Largo Barocco, "Minuetto In La Magg", "Giga Per Mandolino", "Mazurka Moderata", and "Variazione Romantiche". LP, Vinyl record album

Beautifully sensitive work from pianist Geri Allen – a session cut with a core trio of Ron Carter on bass and Jimmy Cobb on drums, but one that sparkles even more from guest contributions by Wallace Roney and Carmen Lundy! Geri's piano is at the forefront of the set – sliding out gracefully with a sound that's not exactly timeless, but which has a soulful energy that reminds us a lot of some of the best styles of her roots – focused a bit more here, and augmented on a few tracks by the Atlanta Jazz Chorus, a vocal group who hardly dominate the record, but float in very gently alongside Geri's piano – almost in a style that's similar to the use of voices on some of Duke Pearson's last recordings for Blue Note. Titles include "Portraits & Dreams", "Oh Freedom", "Melchezedik", "Well Done", "La Strada", "I Have A Dream", "Nearly", "In Real Time", "Our Lady", and "Timeless Portraits & Dreams". CD features a bonus disc with a version of "Lift Every Voice & Sing" by vocalist George Shirley with the Atlanta Jazz Chorus. CD

Carl AndersonAbsence Without Love ... LP
Epic, 1982. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A wicked little set from Carl Anderson – a singer who first found fame on the state, later sung in a spiritual world, but does an especially great job here! Anderson's got some really mighty pipes on the date – a vocal approach that's bold, robust, and plenty proud – stepping out with a bit more strength than some of his mainstream contemporaries in the early 80s – almost at a level that's in Luther Vandross territory, and we mean that in a good way. Production is by Richard Rudolph, who brings in the hip mix of sophisticated soul and jazz touches he used while working with Minnie Riperton in the 70s – especially near the end of her too-short life – and titles include the nice groover "Buttercup", plus "C'est La Vie", "Fooled Myself Again", "Lose That Girl", "AWOL", and "Amour".

Earl AnderzaOuta Sight (Japanese pressing – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Pacific Jazz (Japan), 1962. Used ... $14.99
A lost treasure from the glory days of the LA soul jazz bop scene of the early 60s! Alto player Earl Anderza has this crazy tone that's unlike anything we've ever heard – and he plays with a calculated approach to atonality that hints at later work by Ayler and others – but which comes across here a lot more straight ahead. Unlike Ayler, Anderza is backed by a tight soul jazz combo that includes stunning work by pianist Jack Wilson, one of our all-time favorite players – working here on both straight piano and electric harpsichord – which has a very crazy sound! Other players include George Morrow and Jimmy Bond on bass, plus Donald Dean on drums – and titles include "Blues Baroque", "Freeway", "Benign", and a great version of Wilson's modal classic "Outa Sight"! Plus, this great CD reissue also includes 3 bonus cuts that weren't on the orignal album! CD

Ars NovaArs Nova (1968) ... LP
Elektra, 1968. Very Good Gatefold ... $9.99
A wonderful little set of post-folk rock – with lots of lovely baroque touches! Ars Nova were really a one-off group – known for only this rare gem, issued on Elektra in 1968 – but with a sound that perfectly summed up a generation! There's a wonderful LA late 60s sound here – somewhere between Love and The Byrds, with the baroque touches of the former and the best country influences of the latter – all wrapped up in earnest, honest songwriting that makes even the ambitious moments come across with surprising charm. A true lost relic, and the kind of record that should be in any late 60s cannon! Titles include "Album In Your Mind", "Pavan For My Lady", "General Clover Ends A War", "And How Am I To Know", "Fields Of People", "Automatic Love", and "Song To The City". LP, Vinyl record album
(Gold label pressing. Cover has light wear and a promo sticker.)

✨✧ Ashford & SimpsonGimme Something Real ... LP
Warner, 1973. Very Good Gatefold ... $2.99
One of our favorite albums from this legendary duo – Nick Ashford & Valerie Simpson's first album for Warner Brothers, and compared to the numbers moved by biggest hits, you could call this one a hidden gem – filled with near perfect mellow soul jams and more sweetly soaring groovers alike! There are moments that steer it into more of a rootsy style, kind of an intimate take on the LA soul sound with easy going, elegant backings and production that's nicely tailored to voices, particular Valerie's lovely vocals – but those lead to bigger emotional payoff that hit you deep! This is an underappreciated early effort from the duo as a headlining act, and finds them setting up to change the sound of R&B to come! Titles include "Can You Make It Brother", "Bend Me", "Gimme Something Real", "I'm Determined", "I Need Your Light", "Anywhere", and "Have You Ever Tried It". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear.)

AssociationInsight Out ... LP
Warner, 1967. Very Good- ... $1.99
Fantastic dreamy pop! Despite the fact that this one yielded the super-huge hits "Windy" and "Never My Love", the album's also filled with great 60s pop tunes that you've probably never heard before – all as fantastically well-crafted and delicately strung-out as the big hits. The Association were truly one of the greatest 60s pop harmony groups to come out of the LA scene – and even a big hit album like this is the kind of gem that you'd spend years digging through rare vinyl to hope to find! Other titles include "Happiness Is", "On A Quiet Night", "We Love Us", "Reputation", and "Requiem For The Masses". LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo pressing.)
