Ennio MorriconeGli Intoccabili (Machine Gun McCain) ... LP
Cinevox (Italy), 1968. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $22.99
A classic 60s soundtrack from maestro Ennio Morricone – and a set of music that's lasted a lot longer than the film – which starred John Cassavettes in the role of Machine Gun McCain! Morricone's really coming into his own here – and uses some of the drama of his western work, blended with his growing ability to craft a simple, haunting melody – often the kind of dreamy tune you'd hardly expect to find in a movie like this! A few tense moments move into a slight atonal range – but most numbers have that cool, compressed style that made Morricone so great in the late 60s – with bits of Hammond, guitar, strings, and even some slight horns. The set's got two vocal numbers sung by Jackie Lynton – titles include "La Ballata Di Hank McCain", "Come Quando Fuori Piove", "Irene", "Defilee", "Gli Intoccabili", "Rosemary", "Come Lei", and "Sogno Dopo Sogno".

Ennio MorriconeI Come Icaro ... CD
Saimel (Spain), 1979. New Copy ... $19.99
A great Ennio Morricone soundtrack – penned for a 1979 assassination thriller that starred an aging Yves Montand! There's a sense of majesty here that really grabs us from the get-go – first the sort of slow-building themes that could make Morricone so wonderful in the 70s, then some equally great passages that have a slightly more dramatic vibe – but always with that subtle, spacious quality that could make the maestro so unique and so powerful. Instrumentation is great – with slight bits of harpsichord, isolated oboe, descending string passages, and off-tune piano – and titles include "Deux Phares Dans La Nuit", "La Verite Et Le Soleil", "I Comme Icare", "Recherche Obstinee", and "Prelude A Icare". Expanded version of the album – with tracks from the original record, and the GDM Club CD too. CD

Ennio MorriconeIl Prefetto Di Ferro ... LP
Beat/Dagored (Italy), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 32.98
Dark brilliance from Ennio Morricone – a great 70s thriller that mixes in some great extra elements with the music! Il Prefetto Di Ferro has a core sound that's very much in keeping with Morricone's approach to crime and cop films – a bit warmer and funkier at times than his horror scores, but also touched here with some slight Mediterranean moments on guitar or flute – little "Sicilian" touches to set the mood of the film, in a way that also creates some nicely exotic touches. The record features some vocals and guitar from Rosa Balestrieri – a new collaborator for Morricone – and titles include "La Mafia", "Omerta", "Canto Di Sicilia", "Siccita", "Morte Di Ferrarello", and "Una Rete Di Protenzi".

Ennio MorriconeQuesta Specie D'Amore (blue vinyl pressing) ... LP
GDM (Italy), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
Beautiful work from Ennio Morricone – quite uplifting, even if the general theme is a bit dark and contemplative! Gone are some of the atonal moments of other scores from the time, and in their place are some wonderful passages on strings and piano, with occasional isolated solos on harpsichord or oboe, snaking around in those captivatingly subtle melodies that Morricone could cook up when he really wanted! The album reminds us a bit of a more flowery version of Foto Prohibite or La Donna Invisible – and and titles include "La Madre", "La Terra Del Padre", "Questa Specie D'Amore", "Roma Baldracca", "Federico E La Sua Solitudine", and "Giovanna e Federico". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition clear blue vinyl!)

Ennio MorriconeSvegliati E Uccidi/Sacco E Vanzetti ... CD
BMG (Germany), 1966/1971. Used ... $14.99
2 Morricone soundtracks – back to back! Svegliati E Uccidi is a wonderfully dark little soundtrack – as spare and haunting as some of Morricone's western work, but with some of the more thriller-type touches that we always like best. A few numbers have very cool wordless vocals, and many tracks have a spare guitar line over dark piano and rhythmic pulses. Tracks on that one include "Un Tromba A Dallas", "La Donna Di Un Fueorizegge", "Sul Lago Di Lugano", "La Prima Vittima", and "un Uomo Solo". Sacco E Vanzetti is kind of a period score by Morricone – written for this 1971 film about the famous and unjust trial of Sacco & Vanzetti. Some of the tunes still have some nice Morricone-esque touches – like solo electronic keyboard on one track, or a nice bit of oboe on another – and Joan Baez sings the folksy "Ballad of Sacco & Vanzetti". Other tracks include "In Prison", "Sacco & His Son", "Freedom In Hope", "The Electric Chair", and "Here's To You", which features some backing work by I Cantori Moderni. CD

Ennio MorriconeTepepa (orange vinyl pressing) ... LP
GDM (Italy), 1968. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $24.99
A lost western score from Ennio Morricone – directed with some nice musical flourishes by the great Bruno Nicolai! The work's got the feel of some of Morricone's more famous spaghetti western scores – with some great moody passages that hint at the offbeat instrumentation of his horror work, coupled with more driving action-related tunes that have a more driving feel overall – and together, these tunes weave a very visual tapestry of sound – possibly even more compelling than the actual film! Titles include "Viva La Revolucion", "Tepepa E Price", "A Meta Strada", "Una Povera Casa", "Consegna Delle Armi", and "Tradimento Secondo". LP, Vinyl record album

Ennio MorriconeVamos A Matar, Companeros (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
GDM (Italy), 1970. New Copy ... $26.99
A soundtrack as striking as it's cover image of a man buried up to his head in the ground – and a real lesser-known western gem from Ennio Morricone! The music balances a broad number of styles here – from darkly chanting vocals, to warmer mellower strings, to elements that more playfully evoke a sense of time and place – augmented from time to time by harmonica from Franco De Gemini and whistling and guitar from Alessandro Alessandroni – both two of Morricone's best partners in music at the time! Titles include "Il Pinguino", "La Messicana", "Vamos A Matar Companeros", "Cecchino", and "La Lora Patria". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ennio MorriconeVeruschka ... LP
Right Tempo (Italy), 1971. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $14.99
One of the most haunting Morricone soundtracks ever – and one of the grooviest too! The album's a perfect blend of our two favorite styles of Morricone work – that of the floating female vocal over a gentle groove, and the darker, tenser side of his music. The main "Verushka" theme is one of his most beautiful – a variation of female vocals with a gentle edge, in the tradition of classic soundtracks like La Donna Invisible or Le Photo Proibite. This theme shifts from mood to mood over the course of the LP, occasionally giving way to some more atonal passages and other more jazz-based tunes – more of which are included here than on the original release, thanks to an expanded reissue job by Right Tempo! In fact, the whole thing's bubbling over with great music – one of the best Morricone reissues we've ever stocked – done with great sound and a huge array of extra tracks! Titles include a number of takes on the "Verushka" theme, plus "Astratto", "La Bambola", "Le Fotografie", "Magia", "La Spiaggia", and "Dopo L'Intervista". LP, Vinyl record album

Bob MosesBittersuite In The Ozone ... LP
Mozown, 1975. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A key piece of self-issued jazz from percussionist/pianist Bob Moses – the first record on his Mozown label, and an album that managed to travel incredibly in the underground jazz circles of the 70s. Moses has a great lineup of players working with him on the set – including vocalist Jeanne Lee, bassist Eddie Gomez, drummer Billy Hart, and hornmen Randy Brecker, Howard Johnson, and David Liebman. The set's got an introspective quality that often seems to double back on itself – free at times, but rhythmically circular at others – making for more tension than release, in a style that played well with crowds at the time. Titles include "Mfwala Myo La La", "Stanley Free", "Message To The Music Bizness", and "Bittersuite In The Ozone". LP, Vinyl record album

Ed MottaPerpetual Gateways ... CD
Dwitza/Membran (Germany), 2016. New Copy ... $16.99
Ed Motta knocks it out of the park with this one – taking things in an even more soulfully classic direction than on his killer AOR album – and giving us key proof that he's one of the most important soul singers of the 21st Century so far! Ed's got a way of opening doors wherever he goes – as part of a huge global legacy he's left in the past decade or soul – and this time around, he's opening the doors to a classic style of studio production from the LA scene – the kind of warm soul that works perfect for Motta's incredible voice, and which makes the album one of the best he's ever given us! Ed plays Fender Rhodes in the small combo backing here – and is working with a key group of jazz musicians that includes Patrice Rushen and Greg Phillingaines on keyboards, Hubert Laws on flute, Rickey Woodard and Charles Owens on tenor, and Marvin Smitty Smith on drums – a stunning lineup that makes for amazing sounds throughout. All lyrics are in English, and Ed effortlessly blends jazz and soul on original titles that include "Captain's Refusal", "Forgotten Nickname", "The Owner", "A Town In Flames", "Good Intentions", "Hypochondriac's Fun", "Heritage Deja Vu", "Overblown Overweight", and "Reader's Choice".

Georges Moustaki & OthersGeorges Moustaki Et Ses Premiers Interpretes – Integrale 1955 to 1962 (3CD set) ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 3CD ... $18.99 29.99
Most folks know Georges Moustaki as a grey-haired, full-bearded fellow from his records of the 70s – but back at the start of his career he was a sharp-dressed singer/songwriter who could match the cool and class of some of his best French contemporaries in the postwar years! This set focuses on all that made Moustaki great in the early days – in a 3CD package that features a full CD of his own initial recordings, including some he cut under the name of Eddie Salem – and two more CD's worth of material from other French singers who quickly championed Georges' songs with their own recorded versions! The package is every bit as great as the similar sets from Fremeux on Serge Gainsbourg and Claude Nougaro – and titles include "J'Attends Le Jour", "Mon Ile De France", "De Shanghai A Bangkok", "Ya Me Leili", "J'Ai Deja Dit Non", and "Reste Avec Moi" by Georges Moustaki – plus "Eden Blues" by Irene Lecarte, "Il N'Y A Plus D'Amandes" by Henri Salvador, "Ma Ville A Peur Du Loup" by Noelle Norman, "La Saint Paris" by Paul Roby, "Mi Muchacha" by Les Whiskys, "Dunkerque" by Michele Arnaud, "De Shanghai A Bangkok" by Barbara, "Le Passager Clandestin" by Daniele Rouille, and "Un Etranger" by Edith Piaf. 70 titles in all!

Werner MullerInternational Film Festival ... LP
Warner, 1964. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A great set that brings together themes from some of the best European films of the early 60s – work by composers who include Nino Rota, John Addison, Maurice Jarre, and others – all presented as short, focused instrumental tunes! Werner Muller's instrumental approach features strings mixed with some jaunty rhythms – and titles include "Sundays & Cybele", "Jules Et Jim", "Shoot The Piano Player", "Theme From 8 1/2", "La Strada", and "Last Year At Marienbad".

Simon Nabatov/Mark DresserProjections ... CD
Clean Feed (Portugal), 2015. New Copy ... $14.99
The first-ever duo recording from pianist Simon Nabatov and bassist Mark Dresser – a set that has both players standing in very strong individual space, while still making great sounds together! Nabatov's piano has plenty of bold, angular flourishes – sometimes which seem to come from playing inside the piano box, as well as the keys – and Dresser's bass is much deeper, and sometimes more tentative – a sense of spaciousness that balances things out wonderfully, and makes for a really rich palette of colors. Titles include "Aria Attach", "Pliant Giant", "La Ment", and "Parting Shots". CD

✨✧ Native Steel Drum BandSteel Drums ... LP
Tradition, 1970s. Near Mint- ... $6.99
The notes on this one fail to offer any region, but we're assuming this was recorded live somewhere in the Carribean. It's a nice lively set of steel drum tracks, reportly played on the oil can kind. Tracks include "Fire Down Below", "Zulu Chant", "Grass Skirt", "La Paloma", "Mary Ann", "Out Of My Dreams", "Spear Dance", "Jungle", and "Spur Dance". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jimmy T-99 NelsonCry Hard Luck – The RPM & Kent Recordings 1951 to 1961 ... CD
Ace (UK), 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Don't let the "T-99" on the cover make you think that Jimmy Nelson's just a one trick pony – because despite the greatness of that classic, he's also got a hell of a lot more to offer too – as you'll hear on this stunning collection that's the first to finally dig into the wealth of excellent LA recordings he made in the 50s! Nelson's got a style that's part blues, part jazz, and perfect for all the hip currents that were coming forth from the west coast during these amazing years – and the singer gets plenty of jumping Central Avenue rhythms on these wonderful sides – music that hardly cares anything about the big styles of the previous months, as it leaps forward strongly to uncover whole new modes of expression. There's a jumping joy to most of these tracks that still grabs us after all these years – a moment when blues not only didn't have to be totally "blue", but also could steer clear of so many later cliches. CD features 23 tracks in all – some rare RPM Records singles, some unissued tracks too – with titles that include "T-99", "Cary Hard Luck", "Married Men Like Sport", "Right Around The Corner", "Meet Me With Your Black Dress On", "Rain Drop Blues", "Fine Little Honey Dripper", "She's My Baby", "I Sat & Cried", "Unlock The Door", and "Big Mouth".

New MastersoundsThis Is What We Do ... CD
3 On The B, 2005. New Copy ... $11.99
Funky madness from The New Mastersounds – sounding better here than we remember them in years, with a real nitty-gritty quality that reminds us of their best early singles! The grooves on the set are extremely intense – from the percussion-jamming timbales of "The Tin Drum", to the mad guitar of "Zambezi", to the super-cooking organ of "You Got It All" – and each new track is a delightful surprise, offering a different focus on the group's instrumental strengths – all of which are presented here with raw and stripped-down production! Sam Bell guests on percussion – and other tracks include "Baby Bouncer", "La Cova", "Pure", "Ain't No Telling", "The Minx", and "Land Of Nod". CD

Claude Nougaro & OthersClaude Nougaro Et Ses Interpretes 1955 to 1961 ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 29.99
Early work from one of our favorite French singers ever – not only some of his first few recordings, but also a huge host of material by other contemporaries who recorded their own takes on the compositions of Pierre Barouh! Barouh was the ultimate left bank hipster in the postwar years – strongly influenced by American jazz, to a point where he would often pen his own French lyrics to American jazz tunes, and come up with his own jazzy material too – even to a point where he'd go onto record with a fair bit of jazz musicians from both Paris and the US! That influence is already in place here, as the tracks offer up material very different than familiar French chanson – work that's groovier more upbeat, and often filled with hip instrumental touches to match the inherent poetry of Nougaro's words. And although we've made it a point to track down everything Claude ever recorded over the years, we've actually not heard most of the other work here – which represents the bulk of the collection. Titles include "Seulement" by Cyril Dalin, "Mephisto" by Paul Peri, "Coupez Les Moi Au Rasoir" by Paul Roby, "Maman M'La Dit" by Stephen Bruce, "La Folle Chanson" by Zack Matalon, "Joseph" by Philippe Clay, "Le Balayeur Du Roy" by Marcel Amont, "Vise La Poupee" by Elise Vallee, and "Vole Vole" by Les Jazz Baladins – plus "Les Anges", "Il Y Avait Une Ville", "Le Piano De Mauvaise Vi", "Tiens Toi Bien A Mon Coeur", and "Marguerite" by Claude Nougaro himself.

Rim Kwaku Obeng & The BelieversRim Arrives/International Funk ... LP
BBE (UK), 1980. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99 25.98
A damn soulful album from Ghanaian percussionist Rim Kwaku Obeng – recorded in LA at the end of the 70s, with loads of sweet clubby touches in the mix! Rim gets in plenty of tight percussion – lots of which showcases his rim-heavy approach to the drums – and also plays keyboards and sings a bit too – in a larger group that mixes in some very hip LA funky elements, a bit like some of the criss-crossing that Hugh Masekela did on his Chisa Records sessions! The style makes for a great bit of funky club with lots of deeper acoustic percussion elements in the sound – and titles include the massive break classic "Funky Drummer", plus "Nothing Is Free", "Spend Your Money", "Gas Line", "Sunkwa", and "Believe In Yourself". Special package – also includes the bonus 12" tracks "International Funk (voc)", and "International Funk (inst)". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Old & New DreamsOld & New Dreams (ECM) ... LP
ECM, 1979. Near Mint- ... $16.99
One of the greatest groups of the second generation of ECM – a post-Ornette Coleman quartet that features Don Cherry, Dewey Redman, Charlie Haden, and Ed Blackwell – all exploring space in a way that's quite different than their work with Ornette! The sound here is much freer, and atmospheric – in keeping with Cherry's work of the 70s, and the overall ECM sound of the time – and although unified, there's less of an emphasis on group dynamics than in the Coleman years, and more of a recognition of the role of the individual. Titles include unique reworkings of Ornette's "Lonely Woman" and "Open Or Close" – plus Blackwell's "Togo", Cherry's "Guinea", Redman's "Orbit Of La-Ba", and Charlie Haden's "Song For The Whales". LP, Vinyl record album
