Leonard CohenBook Of Longing (hardcover) ... Book
Ecco, 2006. New Copy ... $8.99 24.95
The great Leonard Cohen has gotten such acclaim over the decades as a singer, it's easy to forget that the man first begun as a poet – almost as if the poetry of his songs was more than enough! This book returns Cohen to the spotlight as a writer, and brings together poems written over the course of a 20 year period – a time when Leonard was changing locale, and maybe more involved in music than before – but still guided by a keen eye for a deft phrase, delivered here in a way that's nicely different than his songwriting. The book also contains a number of pencil illustrations by Cohen – and is 231 pages, hardcover. Book

Leonard CohenSongs From A Room (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Columbia/Sundazed, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99 28.98
The second album from Leonard Cohen – a more stripped down effort produced by Bob Johnston, with some really odd washes of sound on the outer edges of the sound – adding some slightly uneasy atmosphere that's paired masterfully with Cohen's moody pen. An album full of subtle triumphs, with a few of his more iconic songs and certainly in the upper regions of best work. Titles include the classic "Bird On The Wire", "Story of Isaac", "Seems So Long Ago, Nancy", "The Butcher", "You Know Who I Am", "Lady Midnight" and "Tonight Will Be Fine". LP, Vinyl record album
(Remastered, and on high-definition 180 gram vinyl!)

✨✧ Leonard CohenYou Want It Darker (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Columbia, 2016. New Copy ... $23.99 24.98
The cover's a bit chilling, given that the record was Leonard Cohen's last – and it almost makes us feel as if he's looking back on all of us, from the brightness of the great beyond! But even without that image, the album's got a vibe that really lives up to its title – impossible to consider in these days after Cohen's passing – which feels almost inevitable in the pacing and mood of the music, and the liner notes' explanation that he was in such pain during the recording of the set, that his son Adam had to work as the guiding force to bring all the music together. Cohen's often talking more than singing, but shifts easily between both modes – in a raspy voice that almost makes him feel as if he's taking a late-life turn towards a Serge Gainsbourg mode of presentation – even though his lyrical content is very much his own. The poetry of the man is still extremely powerful – and still a masterpiece in economy that so many other songwriters should heed – on titles that include "It Seemed The Better Day", "Steer Your Way", "Traveling Light", "If I Didn't Have Your Love", "You Want It Darker", "Treaty", and "Leaving The Table".

Pierre BarouhCa Va, Ca Vient (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Saravah (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $15.99
Genius early work from Pierre Barouh – the artist best known for his contribution to the film A Man & A Woman, but also the owner of the legendary Saravah Records label – one of the grooviest imprints around! The set is a real move forward from Barouh's earlier material, which was a bit straighter – although still pretty hip – and this time around, he's bringing in a wide range of elements – Brazilian bits, folksy touches, and more – all served up with an approach that's as uniquely personal as work by other Saravah artists, like Brigitte Fontaine or Areski! Barouh's a brilliant writer and singer, and his work is a lost link in a tradition that spans Caetano Veloso, Leonard Cohen, Serge Gainsbourg, and others – crucially overlooked on this side of the Atlantic, and extremely important to us over the years. Titles include "De L'Amour A L'Amour", "Le Courage D'Aimer", "80 AB", "La Foret", "Le Petit Cheval De Bois", "Le Petit Cine", and "Paris Wellington". CD features bonus tracks – "Le Naufrage", "Perdu", "Ca Va Ca Vient (cinema version)", and "80 AB". CD

DionDion Recorded Live At The Bitter End – August 1971 ... CD
Ace (UK), 1971. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A brilliant live performance from Dion DiMucci – recorded long after his early pop years, and at a time when the singer had re-emerged as a surprisingly cerebral folk artist! The performance has Dion working solo with acoustic guitar – singing with a depth of feeling and sense of righteousness you never would have guessed in the early part of the 60s – and a few of the tracks here were issued on Dion's third album for Warner, Sanctuary, but the full performance makes its appearance here for the first time ever – a total of 17 tracks in all that show the singer working through his own great compositions, as well as material by Dylan, Leonard Cohen, and other contemporaries. Titles include "Mama You've Been On My Mind", "Brand New Morning", "Sisters Of Mercy", "Your Own Backhard", "Sunshine Lady", "Sanctuary", "Willigo", "Harmony Sound", and "One Too Many Mornings". CD

Roberta FlackKilling Me Softly ... CD
Atlantic, 1973. Used ... $4.99
Roberta Flack at her most masterful – balancing righteous soul at it's most spiritually resonant and more mainstream accessible melodies – from her classic years at Atlantic when she was forging a whole new sound that was a unique blend of soul, jazz, and spiritualism. Each of Roberta's preceding albums on Atlantic were increasingly incredible – and this one caps of a pretty incredible late 60s to early 70s run of top quality work. Includes the ever-fresh title cut, remade later by The Fugees in a version that cemented it's status with the next generation – plus a great version Leonard Cohen's "Suzanne", "River", "No Tears (In The End)", "I'm The Girl", "When You Smile" and "Conversation Love".

✨✧ Lee HazlewoodCowboy In Sweden ... LP
Light In The Attic, 1970. New Copy ... $19.99 23.99
There was never anyone like Lee Hazlewood – and this album is a true testament to his genius! He's the kind of guy you think you've got figured out when you first look at him – but the more you listen to his music, the more you want to raise him above all of the other hip singer/songwriters he seems to be like (Gram Parsons, Leonard Cohen, etc). At heart, Lee was a Cowboy – much more so than any of those fake LA "desperadoes" of the Sunset rock years – and this album, recorded as part of the enigmatic film A Cowboy In Sweden, is true testament to Lee's incredible ability to be both totally serious about his image, yet still maintain a sense of wit and distance that makes him incredibly hard to pin down, genre-wise. He's the country singer Scott Walker always wanted to be, and he's got a pop genius that Leonard Cohen painfully tried to reach in his later years. Brilliant! Filled with beautiful titles like "Forget Marie", "Pray Them Bars Away", "Easy & Me", "No Train To Stockholm", and "The Night Before" – one that you won't forget for a long time!

Bob LindElusive Butterfly – The Complete 1966 Jack Nitzsche Sessions (Don't Be Concerned/Photographs Of Feeling) ... CD
World Pacific/Big Beat (UK), 1966. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
Pop-folk genius from the elusive Bob Lind – two mid 60s albums, both arranged and produced by Jack Nitzsche! Lind's style is way more than typical folk of the time – as his tunes have a fragile sense of poetry that's really beautiful – a bit like the early work of Leonard Cohen, although not as dark – and put together with light strings and interesting orchestrations from Nitzsche that really add a heck of a lot to their mood! We'll be honest in saying that we've always known Lind's title hit "Elusive Butterfly" over the years, but we'd never heard the rest of this work – and we're stunned at the depth and complexity of the music – not just Lind's wonderfully fresh lyrics, but also Nitzche's incredible backings – easily some of his greatest pop work of the 60s! CD features both the albums Don't Be Concerned and Photographs Of Feeling – plus a few bonus tracks – 25 tracks that include "Remember The Rain", "Dale Anne", "Unlock The Door", "Counting", "You Should Have Seen It", "Mr Zero", "Elusive Butterfly", "It Wasn't Just The Morning", "Go Ask Your Man", "I Just Let It Take Me", "A Nameless Request", "Drifter's Sunrise", and "The World Is Just A B-Movie".

Gayle Sherwood MageeRobert Altman's Soundtracks – Film Music & Sound From MASH To A Prairie Home Companion (hardcover) ... Book
Oxford University Press, 2014. New Copy ... $6.99 36.95
Director Robert Altman has always had a special place for music in his films – from his strong use of Leonard Cohen in McCabe & Mrs Miller, to the famous song in MASH, to the range of intersecting styles that make Nashville such a great movie! Yet there's also much deeper relationships between music and image in Altman's films – which are traced very well in this volume – presented in a rich academic study of the movies, the director, and the larger scene in which he worked – all with way more detail than the usual mainstream film book. The author is a professor in musicology, but certainly knows her way around film as well – and the hardcover book is 295 pages, with a few black and white images. Book

MelanieBorn To Be ... CD
Buddah/Wounded Bird, 1968. New Copy ... $10.99 14.99
Melanie's a folkie at heart, but one who's very open to new ideas too – as you'll hear in this surprisingly offbeat set from the late 60s! The record mixes Melanie's raspy, almost eerie vocal approach with some compelling charts from Roger Kellaway – who respects the folk impulses at the core, but also brings in some unusual inflections in the other instrumentation – that post-folk approach that was showing up in records by Leonard Cohen and others of the singer/songwriter generation. The difference is subtle, but very striking – and very different than the way the set would have been recorded a few years previously. Titles include "Christopher Robin", co-written with AA Milne – plus "In The Hour", "I'm Back In Town", "Bobo's Party", "Close To It All", "Merry Christmas", and "I Really Loved Harold". CD

Geraldo VandrePra Nao Dizer Que Nao Falei Das Flores ... CD
Som Maior (Brazil), 1968. New Copy ... $9.99
Brilliant work from Geraldo Vandre – an overlooked singer/songwriter who was a key bridge between the early bossa years and more sophisticated MPB sounds in the 70s! In the years immediately preceding the rise of the MPB giants of the post-Tropicalia years, Geraldo Vandre was one of Brazil's best talents, and an extremely strong singer/songwriter who managed to build a bridge from the bossa era to the present. This incredible album from the mid 60s is one of his best – and features an amazing set of songs that match any of the best Brazilian work of the 60s. Some tracks are folksy, some have a bit of a jazz sound – and the range of styles seems to run from Leonard Cohen to Marcos Valle to Dick Farney. Really great stuff – with an imagination and soulfulness that still leaves us breathless. Titles include "Requiem Para Matraga", "Tristeza De Amar", "Pequeno Concerto Que Ficou Cancao", "Rosa Flor", "Que Quizer Encontrar O Amor", and "Porta Estandarte". CD

✨✧ Nancy WilsonCan't Take My Eyes Off Of You ... LP
Capitol, 1970. Very Good+ ... $1.99
A really great album from Nancy Wilson – a set that still has her working with the jazzy undercurrents of her best 60s work for Capitol Records – yet also moving into some hipper, more sophisticated soul styles too! There's a really strong adult vibe to the record – not that Nancy didn't have one before, but this time around there's even more sense of personality and experiential depth that really comes through in the choice of songs – and in Wilson's wonderful treatment of them. Tunes that might be stiff in the hands of someone else are really transformed here – with added thanks to Phil Wright for great arrangements on the record. Titles include a version of Leonard Cohen's "Suzanne", Burt Bacharach's obscure "Waitin For Charlie To Come Home", and the tracks "Trip With Me", "This Girl Is A Woman Now", "Mixed Up Girl", and "Words & Music".

ESP/Get Back (Italy), 1968. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The second album by Tom Rapp's legendary group Pearls Before Swine – and a haunting batch of tracks that is far and away one of our favorite rock albums of the 60s! The style of the music is incredible – a dark blend of rock and folk, with slight avant influences, in a style that's influenced countless groups in later years, most famously some of the British acts on 4AD. Rapp's vision and vocals are instantly captivating – sad and moody but never self-pitying, with a sound that's as striking as the production of the album's jagged musical backings. Includes the tracks "Translucent Carriages", "I Saw the World", "Lepers and Roses", and a cover of Leonard Cohen's "Suzanne". CD

Genius work from Pearls Before Swine – the haunting folk rock combo that was headed by singer/songwriter Tom Rapp! We'd place Rapp in a unique category with Tim Hardin, Leonard Cohen, Nick Drake, and a rare few other talents who could mix together styles and come up with a sound that transcended their generation. There's a wonderfully dark quality to this album that gives it a timeless feel – strains of avant instrumentation underneath the gentler sound of Rapp's voice, and an undying sadness that's matched by the feel of songs like "Another Time", "Playmate", and "Morning Song".

✨✧ Arnaldo BaptistaArnaldo Baptista Box (Loki/Elo Perdido/Faremos Uma Noitada Excelente/Singin Alone/Let It Bed) (5CD set) ... CD
Philips/Canal (Brazil), 1970s/1980s. New Copy 5 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A special box set of work from this key member of Os Mutantes – one that looks at all the many facets of his compelling solo career! The first album in the set is the landmark Loki – an incredibly crazy and messed-up album of tracks cut by Arnaldo Baptista after the breakup of Os Mutantes. Baptista wrote all of the songs, except for one, which lists "Os Mutantes" in the credits – and the tracks feature his booze-drenched vocals right up front, with backing by piano, and some very theatrical arrangements that are quite different than the work of his earlier Tropicalia group. The record is tough to describe – sort of a mix of early 70s Euro singer/songwriter trends, particularly those of the Saravah scene – with maybe a bit of post-psyche rock, with piano as the most dominant instrument in the mix. There's a surprisingly personal feel to the whole thing – and titles include "Uma Pessoa So", "Nao Estou Nem Ai", "Desculpe", "E Facil", and "Navegar De Novo". The package also features Singin Alone, from 1982 – a very spare, very boozy solo LP by this ex-Mutantes member. Most of the tracks have him sitting at the piano, singing along in very raspy vocals, with most of the lyrics in English. The record is very different from the Mutantes records, but is an excellent bit of work in the rock singer-songwriter tradtion (which might here include Leonard Cohen or Tom Waits, as comparable examples.) We don't really know what Baptista's up to at this point, but the record is a haunting solo work, with many great tracks like "Jesus, Come Back To Earth", "I Fell In Love One Day", and "O Sol". Next is Elo Perdido – a collaboration with Patrulha Do Espacao - followed by Let It Bed, a more recent album that shows that Baptista had developed into a surprisingly sensitive songwriter. But maybe most amazing is Faremos Uma Noita Da Excelente – a live set from 1978 that also features work from Patrulha Do Espacao – and which wasn't issued at the time! CD

✨✧ Tony KosinecProcesses ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful little record from Tony Kosinec – a lesser-known songwriter from the late 60s scene, and one with a pretty unusual sound as well! Tony originally hails from the UK, but was working in Canada at the time of this set – and the album's an unusual blend of folksy roots with jazzier phrasing – a set that sits nicely in the company of Columbia contemporaries like Leonard Cohen or Tim Hardin, and which also has a voice that's as uniquely formed as theirs! Tony's tunes are quite poetic, but never too much so – and his way of singing is sometimes fluid, but never flowery – almost informed by jazz, but not jazzy – if we can get away with that many qualifiers in one sentence. There's a slight hint of roots in the backings, but Tony's accent and performance never lapse into simple country cliches. Titles include "Mystic Fifties", "Tyrant", "Down On Words", "Cleopatra", "Feather Of A Boy", "Summer/Spring", and "I Can't Sing". CD
