Mighty ImperialsThunder Chicken ... CD
Desco/Daptone, 2000. Used ... $9.99
Super-heavy funk from late great Desco Records scene! The Mighty Imperials were one of the best funky 45 groups to record for mighty deep funk Desco label – and their first album never properly saw the light of day, thanks to some pressing and distribution messups before the demise of the company. Now, the whole thing's finally out officially – a funky treasure that sounds like a lost 70s gem, and which has almost as much mystique, given the status of the original record! The core combo features organ, drums, bass, and super-heavy guitar – and the album also features them recording with some additional vocal help from Joseph Henry! Henry sings in a mode that's very similar to Lee Fields' work with the deep funk scene – and his vocals are on a number of tracks on the album – leaving the rest as groovy funky instrumentals with a nice heavy late 60s sock-boogaloo sound! Includes covers of "Never Found A Girl" and "Cold Sweat" – plus originals "Soul Buster pt 1", "Chico's Barnyard", "Kick The Blanket", "Thunder Chicken", and "Joseph's Popcorn". CD

✨✧ Magnetic Fields69 Love Songs (3CD set) ... CD
Merge, 1999. Used 3 CDs ... Out Of Stock
One of the most revered indie albums of the modern era, and certainly one of those biggest – in terms of sheer size as well as acclaim – even though it was only ever a blip on the mainstream radar! Stephin Merritt's sprawling, quite literally titled 69 Love Songs kind of serves as an outsider's history of pop songcraft, riffing on different styles and eras, with a truly distinctive creative voice. A great part of the charm is the sometimes witty, sometimes melancholy, often both, and ALWAYS clever lyricism (without being cute.) Even with the huge number of songs, it's incredibly consistent, holding together better than many of Merritt's single albums over the years if you ask us! One of the cases where the critical consensus really got it right – it's a masterpiece –and this beautiful 6 X 10" vinyl box set is a nearly perfect way to present it! Includes "Absolutely Cuckoo", "I Don't Believe In The Sun", "Reno Dakota", "The Cactus Where Your Heart Should Be", "Parades Go By", "Punk Love", "The Things We Did And Didn't Do", "Roses", "Love Is Like Jazz", "Very Funny", "Grand Canyon", Asleep And Dreaming", "I Shatter", "Kiss Me Like You Mean It", "Underwear", "Busby Berkeley Dreams", "Bitter Tears", "Meaningless", "Queen Of The Savages", "Love Is Like A Bottle Of Gin", "Strange Eyes", "Zebra", "Experimental Music Love", "Long Forgotten Fairytale", "I Think I Need A New Heart" and many more.
