✨✧ LabellePressure Cookin' ... CD
RCA/Reel Music, 1973. New Copy ... $5.99 12.99
An early classic from LaBelle – wonderful vocals mixed with both heavy funk and laidback spacey soul touches! The group had really hit their stride by this point – as the trio of Nona Hendryx/Sarah Dash/Patti Labelle push way past their girl group roots – and even some of the slightly less-formed modes of their Warner Brothers years – finding a really badass sort of territory that would serve them well for the rest of the 70s! The shift really pays off – as there's a number of good funky numbers on the album – and some righteous political lyricism in the mix, too – but also some mellower moments that really round things out nicely. The trio riff on a version of "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised", as led into by the cut "Something In The Air" – and other numbers include "Sunshine (Woke Me Up This Morning)", "Mr. Music Man", "Goin' On a Holiday", "Open Up Your Heart", "Let Me See You In The Light", and "Can I Speak to You Before You Go to Hollywood".

✨✧ Max RoachMax Roach Quartet Featuring Hank Mobley ... LP
Debut, 1953. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Killer stuff! Despite the early date and boppish orientation of the material on this album, the tracks have a sinister modernist edge that easily belies the later work of both Roach and Hank Mobley. The set kicks off with the incredible stormer "Cou Manchi Cou", then slides into a crackling batch of cuts that include "Mobleyzation", "Chi Chi", "Sfax", and "Orientation". There's lots of amazing drum work, and some incredible arrangements that show a very far-reaching sensibility on Roach's part. LP, Vinyl record album

Camberwell NowEP Collection (Meridian/Greenfingers) (with bonus download) ... LP
Modern Classics/Light In The Attic, Mid 80s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $18.99 19.99
A great LP package that brings together the two important EP releases from Camberwell Now – that excellent group formed by Charles Hayward after the dissolution of This Heat! The first half of the set is from Meridian – the group's first effort, and a wonderful batch of music that kind of takes an earlier Brit prog sound into the post-punk years – a bit like some of Robert Wyatt's material of the time, as are the vocals – but with maybe more of the sense of sound and texture that you'd expect from Hayward! Overall, the music is far less rhythmic than his previous efforts – but that's what makes it great – almost a weirder abstraction of sounds you might hear on Factory Records. Titles include "Cutty Sark", "Trade Winds", "Splash", and "Pearl Divers". Greenfingers is the last recorded material from Camberwell Now – an EP released in 1987, but one with a sound that feels much more like the UK indie scene of 5 years before – especially that point when groups were breaking past straighter punk, and really trying to integrate some new ideas with their music. There's definitely a continuation of the Robert Wyatt vibe – on both the vocal performance, and some of the moodier electronics – and titles include "Greenfingers", "Element Unknown", "Know How", and "Mystery Of The Fence".

(Beautiful package – heavy cover with booklet, plus download with two bonus tracks!)

Eydie GormeDon't Go To Strangers ... LP
Columbia, 1966. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A 60s classic from Eydie Gorme – and a set that showed the world that she had a lot more to offer than just some peppy duets with Steve Lawrence! Sure, Eydie had sung on her own before – and often did a pretty darn great job – but this album really takes off with a new sort of maturity – one that comes through in the title, and in Gorme's all-adult readings of the tunes – with a poise, care, and class that we're not sure we'd heard on records from her before. Don Costa handles the arrangements superbly – and titles include "What Did I Have That I Don't Have", "If He Walked Into My Life", "Don't Go To Strangers", "How Did He Look", "When He Leaves You", and "Tell Him I Said Hello".

Laetitia Sadier Source EnsembleFind Me Finding You ... CD
Drag City, 2017. New Copy ... $12.99
A wonderful, and nicely surprising return to Stereolab-like vibes from Laetitia Sadier! Laetitia really found some different, moodier contours on her previous couple (also excellent) solo efforts – and it was pleasing for us longtime fans to hear her working in recognizable form, but taking some different roads. This one's a little more like the old days, though! Which is not to say the Laetitia Sadier Source Ensemble is a seperate stab at a Stereolab record – there's an all-around more down-to-earth vibe than than buoyant, often spacey pop of her legendary former band – but she's drawing from the same wonderful well of 60s French pop, 70s keyboards and myriad other inspirations, with dreamy bilingual English & French vocals. Includes "Undying Love For Humanity", "Double Voice, Extra Voice", "Love Captive", "Psychology Active (Finding You)", "Committed", "Reflectors", "Deep Background", "The Woman With The Invisible Necklace" and more.

✨✧ Stelvio CiprianiL'Uomo Piu Velenoso Del Cobra ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1971. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A very cool early 70s soundtrack by Stelvio Cipriani – and done with a killer jazz funk style! L'Uomo Piu Velenoso Del Cobra is a seedy Italian flick with globetrotting murder mystery plot – and the Cipriani's vibe here is clearly informed by Lalo Schifrin's work from the mid 60s to early 70s – and especially his theme for Mission: Impossible. Stelvio is riffing on maestro Schifrin's style here, but he's not ripping it off – as there's a charming loungey jazz funk groove here that's as unique is it is reverent! Lots of groovy organs, some killer horns, strongs and a swinging early 70s rhythm. Great stuff! 19 sequences on the title theme. CD

✨✧ Jean Claude PelletierStreaking ... CD
Vadim (France), 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Libidinous, soundtracky funk from France! Streaking is a great set of funky French grooves from Jean Claude Pelletier – one that's clearly informed by and indebted to the cinematic soul and blacksploitation soundtrack style coming out of the States in the early part of the 70s – with a boisterous, bright European twist! It feels like a blend of soundrack funk and grand scale late 60s and early 70s French pop & soul. Even with the latter elements, it's fairly hard-hitting and certainly geared for the dancefloor on whatever continent! Wah wah guitars, rubbery bass grooves, heavy drums & percussion and a punchy brass section define the sound. To make even groovier, the title and almost all the tracks are cheeky nods to art of streaking! Includes "Hello Streakers", "Special Streaking", "Dangerous For Your Health", "Nudes And Marines", "To Streak With The Devil", "Streaking Land", "Topless On The Trail" and "Streak To Streak". CD

✨✧ Jards MacaleAnos 70s (Jards Macale/AprenderA Nadar/Raros E Inedito) (4CD set) ... CD
Polydor/Discobertas (Brazil), Mid 70s. New Copy 4 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A much-needed look at the 70s work of Jards Macale – a singer/songwriter who was almost as important to his generation as Caetano Veloso or Tom Ze! First up is the 1972 self-titled album Jards Macale – an album that we'd rank right up there with work by Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, or Lo Borges from the same time – with an underground singer/songwriter style, performed in a manner that mixes rock and jazz styles, but all with a rough edge and a very rootsy feel. Macale is an enormous talent that's always been woefully overlooked by listeners outside of Brazil – but he's one of the greatest talents of the 70s, and this may well be his best album! Titles include "Farinha Do Desprezo", "Mal Secreto", "Hotel Das Estrelas", "78 Rotacoes", and "Movimento Dos Barcos". Also features 3 bonus tracks – "Anjo Exterminado", "Movimento Dos Barcos", and "Rua Real Grandeza". Next is Aprender A Nadar, from 1974 – a record that only seems to deepen the songwriting skills of Jards, while also giving him more confidence on the vocal tip. There's still plenty of sharp edges throughout – on material that ranges from post-Tropicalia MPB, to mellow tracks delivered in a smooth soulful voice. Titles include "Jards Anet Da Vida", "Sois Coracoes", "Imagens", "Dona De Castelo", "Estatutos Da Gafieira", "Mambo Da Cantareira", and "E Dai". Also fetaures bonus tracks – demos of "Boneca Semitoica", "Dona De Castelo", "Rua Real Grandeza", "Anjo Exterminado", and "Senhor Dos Sabados". Box set also features 2 more CDs of rare and unissued tracks – 24 more titles that run from Jards' earliest years on record, to some overlooked tracks from later years too! CD

✨✧ Benny GoodmanLive At Carnegie Hall – 40th Anniversary Concert ... LP
Phase 4, 1978. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $2.99
An album recorded in celebration of the anniversary of Benny Goodman's 1938 appearance at Carnegie Hall – but one that features a host of famous guest stars that include Mary Lou Williams, Buddy Tate, and Lionel Hampton! The groove is somewhat in the spirit of the older concert, but there's certainly some modern touches too – not just in the way the music is recorded (crystal clear, as is the Phase 4 way), but also in some of the tonal shadings in the tunes – clearly informed with a bit of the modernisms of the intervening 40 years. Titles include "Send In The Clowns", "Star Dust", "I Love A Piano", "Roll Em", "Rocky Raccoon", "String Of Pearls", "Goodbye", "Christopher Columbus", "Lady Be Good", and "Don't Be That Way". LP, Vinyl record album

Albert MangelsdorffNow Jazz Ramwong – The Albert Mangelsdorff Quintet In Asia ... LP
CBS/Be! (Germany), 1964. New Copy Tri-fold (reissue)... $24.99
Brilliant modern jazz from German trombonist Albert Mangelsdorff – recording here in 1964, but sounding years ahead of his time, with an amazing a blend of jazz and Asian styles! The album's one of Mangelsdorff's best ever – a set of rhythmic tunes that seem clearly informed by the work of Ornette and Joe Harriott, but also based along eastern themes picked up by the group on a tour of the Orient – and performed by a sharp-edged quintet that includes Heinz Sauer on tenor and soprano sax, Gunter Kronberg on alto, Gunter Lenz on bass, and Ralph Hubner on drums. There's some nice traces of MPS/Saba modal and Jazz Meets the World styles – and overall, the rhythmic pulse keeps things from getting as free and out as on Mangelsdorff's 70s sides – really soaring, but never too far out – and always with a cool exotic groove. The whole thing's great – instantly striking, and always a treasure – and titles include "Sakura Waltz", "Now Jazz Ramwong", "Raknash", "Theme From Vietnam", and "Burungkaka". LP, Vinyl record album
(Beautiful tri-fold cover pressing – just like the original!)

ManhattansDedicated To You/For You And Yours ... CD
Carnival/Kent (UK), Mid 60s. Used ... $5.99
Masterpiece soul material! The Manhattans in the 60's were an amazingly precise group that managed to swing, yet still hit a totally soulful groove. This CD presents their first two albums in complete form, features 24 solid tracks, nearly all of them original compositions – and the sound is completely wonderful, a harmony soul fan's delight! Unlike other acts of this nature, too, the group never really recorded any filler – and all the tracks on the set are as great as the singles that formed the bigger hits at the time. Titles include "Follow Your Heart", "That New Girl", "Searchin For My Baby", "I Call It Love", "I Betcha", "There Goes A Fool", "Baby, I'm Sorry", "For The Very First Time", and "I Wanna Be". CD

Dean MartinReturn To Me – The Capitol Years Part 2 (8CD set) ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. Used 8CDs ... $109.99
A fantastic package of work that spans all of Dean's later years at Capitol Records – a time when he was really hitting his creative stride, breaking up with Jerry Lewis, and emerging as a multi-talented performer through his countless live appearances, film work, and other notable contributions to late 50s popular culture. All of this is documented brilliantly in the set's beautiful booklet – a 12" hardcover book with biographical information, an essay, discographical notes, and countless photos and images of Dean in his prime! Dean Martin has been woefully overlooked on the reissue market over the years, which makes this set even fresher than you might think – as it includes a huge amount of stuff that's never been reissued before, including tunes from radio shows, and film soundtracks like Ocean's Eleven, Pardners, Hollywood Or Bust, Ten Thousand Bedrooms, and The Young Lions. We totally love this one – and although we've been Dino fanatics for years, opening this one up is like finding a vault full of rare work we've never heard before! CD

Moraes MoreiraAnos 70 – 1975 to 1979 (Moraes Moreira/Cara E Coracao/Alto Falante/La Vem O Brasil Descendo E Ladeir) (4CD box set) ... CD
Som Livre/Discobertas (Brazil), Late 70s. Used 4CDs ... $39.99
Four full albums from Moraes Moreira – an overlooked Brazilian singer of the late 70s, – at least on an international level – but one who made some very soulful work at the time, especially after departing the group Os Novos Baianos! The records here show a great progression of styles – starting out with Jorge-Ben like samba soul, and mixing in more traditional samba, bits of jazz, and more – often a late 70s mix of MPB and samba – put together with the rootsy feel of the latter, but also some of the more creative song styles of the former! At times, there's a tightness here that's unusual for a samba record – especially as Moraes grows in confidence, yet still keeps things far from being commercial. The box features four full albums, all with remastered sound and artwork – Moraes Moreira, Cara E Coracao, Alto Falante, and La Vem O Brasil Descendo E Ladeir. CD

Vaudou GameKidayu ... CD
Hot Casa (France), 2016. New Copy ... $9.99
A contemporary combo from Togo, but one who've got a hard-riffing sound that takes us back to the James Brown band of the late 60s – which is then mixed with a lot of sweet touches of their own, to create one of the freshest strands of Afro Funk we've heard in years! These guys are hardly content to copy modes of the 70s – and instead, they work with a sense of instrumental craftsmanship that's clearly informed by the giants of the past, but set loose in all these great new directions – especially given the paths that the flowing French vocals seem to open up! There's a sense of joy and pride in the music right from the start – a soaring sort of energy that's a great counterpoint to the gritty grooves at the bottom – and a combination that has us loving the group way more than before. Titles include "Natural Vaudou", "La Vie C'Est Bon", "On Se Pousse", "La Dette", "Elle Decide", "Locataire", "Cherie Nye", and "Lonlon". CD

✨✧ VariousDeep Jazz Trip ... CD
Muse/Pho, Early 70s. New Copy ... $4.99
Things definitely get plenty deep on this jazz trip – a great run through the 70s catalog of Muse Records, and one that's filled with some incredible bits that we'd rank right up there with the best work of the time on labels like Black Jazz or Strata East! Muse always had a way of really letting its artists do their thing – and you'll heard that clearly on some of the best cuts here – numbers that offer up surprisingly vibrant sides of the artists included, usually with some righteous undertones. Titles include Eddie Jefferson's rendering of "Freedom Jazz Dance" (and a very crazy one at that), Charles Earland's excellent stormer "Murilley", Kenny Barron's "Swamp Demon", Walter Bishop Jr's "Soul Village", Joao Donato's "Night Tripper", "Old Man Moses" by Grant Green, and three nice ones by Carlos Garnett – "Good Shepherd", "Banks Of The Nile", and "Taurus Woman", from the classic Black Love LP.

✨✧ Oneness Of JujuAfrican Rhythms ... LP
Black Fire, 1975. Used (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A landmark of 70s Afro-styled jazz – and the first album by this famous underground collective! Oneness of Juju were a Washington DC-based group that grew out of the ashes of the Juju avant jazz ensemble – formed in the culturally rich African-American community of DC in the 70s, with spiritual and political aspirations that stretched far beyond the average funky combo. This first album is a masterful blend of percussion, jazz, and a slight bit of funk – alternating vocal tracks with harder-hitting jazz instrumentals, all held together under the leadership of sax player Plunky Nakabinde – a reedman whose work here alone is worth the price of admission – laid out nicely alongside some great percussion, Fender Rhodes, and wonderfully worm vocals on a few tracks. The album's one of the greatest independent soul jazz albums of the 70s – and it's filled with great tracks, such as the breakbeat classic "African Rhythms" and "Liberation Dues" – plus "Kazi", "Funky Wood", "Don't Give Up", "Poo Too", and "Incognito". LP, Vinyl record album
(90s pressing.)
