Leonard CohenLive In Dublin – Recorded Live In Concert At The O2 Dublin, September 12th 2013 (3CD/DVD) ... CD CD format
Sony, 2014. New Copy 3CDs & DVD ... $36.99 39.98
A pretty wonderful snapshot of the rejuvenated concert brilliance of Leonard Cohen – live in Dublin in 2013 – with the complete concert on 3CDs, plus the full set and bonus performances on DVD! Rather than simply coasting on his reputation and trotting out with a 45 minute set of hits then calling it a night, like so many aging musical heroes of all genres, Cohen puts on a gorgeous 3 hour show of classics and newer material that's even better live than on the studio versions. Amazing! The 3CDs are dividing between the first and second sets of the show, plus a generous 8 song encore – 30 tracks in all: "Dance Me To The End Of Love", "The Future", "Amen", "Darkness", "Tower Of Song", "I'm You're Man", "Hallelujah", "So Long, Marianne", "Going Home", "First We Take Manhattan", "Closing Time", "I Tried To Leave You", "Save The Last Dance For Me", and many more. DVD includes all 30 from the CDs, plus the bonuses "Show Me The Place", "Anyhow" and 'Different Sides". CD

Leonard CohenPopular Problems (180 gram pressing – with bonus CD) ... LP LP format
Columbia, 2014. New Copy ... $23.99 27.98
The twilight renaissance of Leonard Cohen continues on Popular Problems – which joins the preceding Old Ideas album up on the top shelf with some of his best work of the past couple decades! The heaviness of the years in his voice is the album's second strongest element, after the inimitably phrased poetry of his lyricism – backed with angelic female backing vocals and spare instrumentation – led by keyboards, bass, light drums and guitar and some violin. Includes "Slow", "Almost Like The Blues", "Samson In New Orleans", "Did I Ever Love You", "Born In Chains", "You Got Me Singing", "A Street" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(180 gram vinyl version – comes with full CD.)

Leonard CohenSongs Of Love & Hate ... LP LP format
Columbia, 1971. Good ... $5.99
One of the more heavily brooding albums ever cut by Leonard Cohen – and also one of the best – the iconic Songs Of Love And Hate from 1971! Cohen's aptly titled third LP, with the nice spare approach to production that most of his early work had, even more stripped down, with voice and acoustic guitar the focus, and some tasteful, more lush texture when the mood strikes – and oh so incredible wordplay and phrasing from the iconic maverick poet/songwriter. Classic bummers including "Avalanche", "Last Year's Man", "Dress Rehearsal Rag", "Diamonds In The Mine", "Love Calls You By Your Name", "Famous Blue Raincoat", "Sing Another Song, Boys" and "Joan Of Arc".

New Pierre BarouhCa Va, Ca Vient ... LP LP format
Saravah (France), 1971. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $39.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Great French pressing!)

Lewis FureyLewis Furey ... LP LP format
A&M, 1975. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Strange mid 70s rock from Lewis Furey – one of those underground 70s figures who drifted amidst the rock glitterati, working here and there, doing a bit of session work, and somehow getting the chance to cut a few LPs for the majors under his own name. This debut set was cut around the time Furey was working with Leonard Cohen and Cat Stevens – and it's got a style that's a bit of both, with touches of John Cale, who Furey somewhat resembles, in that he plays viola and sings, and has no trouble shifting amidst a variety of darker modes of songwriting. The record's a very strange one for 1975 – and would no doubt have made more of a splash 5 years later, in a post-punk world of more open ears. Tracks include "Hustler's Tango", "Cleanup Time", "Louise", "Kinda Shy", "Caught You", and "Love Comes". LP, Vinyl record album

Pearls Before SwineBalaklava ... LP LP format
ESP, 1968. Very Good+ ... $19.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Get Back reissue pressing.)

Biff RoseThorn In Mrs Rose's Side ... LP LP format
Tetragrammaton, 1968. Very Good+ ... $1.99
Tremendous work from Biff Rose – a near-lost singer-songwriter from the late 60s, barely remembered as the author of "Fill Your Heart" from David Bowie's Hunky Dory album – but an incredible talent that we'd rank right up there with Van Dyke Parks or early Randy Newman for sheer American brilliance! As in the work of Parks, there's a quality here that's completely unique – informed by the freedoms of the folk generation, but tuned with older-styled arrangements that while full, still manage to convey a sense of person and presence – as in some of the best early recordings of Leonard Cohen. And like Cohen, Rose has a really poetically-styled approach to his lyrics – far beyond the sardonic eye of folkies, or the indulgence of hippies – and infused with a sense of hope that crackles out of the tunes along with his own crackly vocals. Vocally, we'd almost link Rose to Bob Dorough for a sheer "oh what the hell I'm just gonna sing this" approach – and like Dorough, there's no silliness at all – but real sincerity where we'd never expect it, in a way that leaves us breathless. The set features arrangements by Rose, Arthur Wright, Kirby Johnson, and Nick Woods – on titles that include "Mama's Boy", "Angel Tension", "Molly", "The Stars", "It's Happening", "Buzz The Fuzz", and "The Man".

Sopwith CamelSopwith Camel ... LP LP format
Kama Sutra, 1967. Good+ ... $6.99
Great work by one of the most compelling groups in the Kama Sutra bubble gum stable! Sopwith Camel always seemed a bit headier than their contemporaries – part Spanky & Our Gang type pop, part long-haired hipster rock – handled with some introspective touches that almost feel like Leonard Cohen at times. This early album's hard to describe, but it's a lost pop gem – and one of those west coast late 60s sides that make you realize that there was a heck of a lot of great music that got lost in the shuffle of the summer of love! Titles include "Walk In The Park", "Postcard From Jamaica", "Cellophane Woman", "Maybe In A Dream", "Saga Of The Low Down Let Down", "Hello Hello", and "Frantic Desolation". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a factory sticker, a split top seam, a half-split bottom seam, a bit of pen, some small stains, and a faded spine.)

Nancy WilsonCan't Take My Eyes Off Of You/Now I'm A Woman (plus bonus tracks) ... CD CD format
Capitol/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1970/1971. New Copy ... $14.99
Overlooked genius from Nancy Wilson – a pair of gems, back to back on a single CD! Can't Take My Eyes Off You is 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". Now I'm A Woman is a really unique moment for Nancy – one in which she leaves the LA sound behind, and gets some special treatment from the young Philly crew of the Gamble & Huff studios! Arrangements on the set are by Thom Bell, Lenny Pakula, and Bobby Martin – and the style's an interesting mix of Nancy's pop jazz vocals with some of the lighter, sweeter sounds of the Philly scene at the start of the 70s. The result is a surprisingly wonderful album – quite different for Nancy, and with the kind of backings that really break her out of the sound of the 60s – and pave the way for the sophisticated style of the 70s. Titles include "Now I'm A Woman", "Let's Fall In Love All Over", "Lonely Lonely", "Joe", "How Many Broken Wings", and "The Real Me". CD features three bonus tracks – "Go Away & Find Yourself", "When You're Alone", and "I'm Gonna Make You Love Me". CD

New McSweeney'sMcSweeneys Issue 27 ... Book Book
McSweeneys, 2008. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the coolest issues of McSweeney's to date – a special slipcover that features three different books inside! Our favorite is Autophobia – a sketchbook by Art Spiegelman that's a great change from some of his higher-concept projects – not only a great way to see his talents evolve in action, but also work with a much more free-floating sense of connection – like his earlier underground comix material! A second book is Lots Of Things Like This – which features graphic art from William Steig, Saul Steinberg, Roy Art Lodge, Leonard Cohen, David Mamet, Joe Brainard, Raymond Pettibon, David Shrigley, and many others. And the last book is the main one – with fiction by Ashlee Adams, Liz Mandrell, Mikel Jollett, Stephen King, and Larry Smith. A really great package – and proof again that McSweeney's is one of the most inventive presses around! Book

New Diana RossRed Hot Rhythm & Blues (2CD edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD CD format
RCA/FTG, 1987. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An overlooked gem from Diana Ross' 80s years – a record that's quite different than her Motown music of the 60s and 70s, but in a way that really shows the singer stepping out and trying something new! The album's maybe more soulful than some of Diana's previous albums – thanks to work from producer Tom Dowd – and the material is a surprising mix of songs, from sources as varied as Leonard Cohen, Luther Vandross, and Mick Hucknall! Ross does nice a nice job in reworking older soul classics – like Jackie Ross' "Selfish One" and The Drifters' "There Goes My Baby" – nestled in nicely next to more contemporary tracks that include "Dirty Looks", "Shockwaves", "Tell Me Again", "Shine", "Summertime", and "It's Hard For Me To Say". 2CD set features nice bonus tracks – including more retro remakes on "Mr Lee", "Sweet Soul Music", and "Tell Mama" – plus four mixes of "Dirty Looks", and three remixes each of "Shockwaves" and "Mr Lee".

The classic box set featuring so many of the biggest, best, and brightest pop, rock & soul singles of the late 50s and on through the 60s – those ubiquitous, but no less incredible productions from that crazy genius Phil Spector! Back To Mono features many of the best known numbers by the Ronettes, the Righteous Brothers, Darlene Love, the Checkmates, the Crystals and many more – all of it with the appropriately dubbed Wall Of Sound that made Phil Spector the most famous producer of all time! We'd love to see an addendum someday featuring a set of Spector's productions for those idiosyncratic superstars of the 70s (the Ramones, Leonard Cohen, the post-Beatles) – but as a snapshot of an era, this box can hardly be beaten! 60 tracks on the the main 3CDs in the set – plus a 4th CD featuring the classic Christmas Gift For You From Phil Spector album from 1963! Titles include "To Know Him Is To Love Him" by the Teddy Bears, "Spanish Harlem" by Ben E King, "I Love How You Love Me" by Paris Sisters, "He's A Rebel" by the Crystals, "(Today I Met) The Boy I'm Going To Marry" by Darlene Love, "Be My Baby" by the Ronettes, "Hold Me Tight" by the Treasures, "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'" by the Righteous Brothers, "River Deep Mountain High" by Ike & Tina, "Love Is All I Have To Give" by Checkmates and tons more – plus the immortal holiday disc featuring the Ronettes, Bob B Soxx & The Blue Jeans, Crystals, Darlene Love and more!

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".

New Bridget St JohnDandelion Albums & BBC Recordings Collection (Ask Me No Questions/Songs For The Gentle Man/Thank You For/Live BBC) (4CD set) ... CD CD format
Cherry Red (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 4CD ... Out Of Stock
A massive collection of work from the legendary Bridget St John – a singer who just seems to get better and better the more we listen to her music! First up is the album Ask Me No Questions – a set with the same spare, chilling quality as Nico's first album on Verve! Like Nico, Bridget is amazingly without categorization – a folksinger initially, but one who's working here with a darkly personal quality that goes far beyond most folk work of the 60s! There's almost a Leonard Cohen-like quality to the tracks here – as they're little song-paintings in words that accomplish a tremendous amount with very little – evocative portraits and landscapes that need little more than Bridget's voice and guitar to carry them off. Titles include "Autumn Lullaby", "Like Never Before", "Barefeet & Hot Pavement", "I Like To Be With You In The Sun", "Many Happy Returns", and "Ask Me No Questions". Next is Songs For The Gentle Man – a slightly more expanded version of the sound explored on her debut! Bridget's still very much in a folk-inspired sound here – but like the work of Nick Drake and some of her contemporaries on the British scene, this album has jazzier phrasings and some slightly baroque touches on some tunes – really deepening the feel of the songs, and giving the album a dark depth that we'd easily compare with some of Drake's greatest work. Studio genius Ron Geesin produced the set with a surprising degree of subtlety – just the right amount of edgey undercurrents to unsettle the tunes nicely – never threatening Bridget's presence on the album, but augmenting the moody spectrums that already came across so nicely on the first record. Titles include "A Day A Way", "City Crazy", "Back To Stay", "Seagull Sunday", "If You'd Been There", "Song For The Laird Of Connaught Hall (part 2)", "It Seems Very Strange", and a version of Donovan's "The Pebble & The Man". Next is Thank You For – a slight shift in styles for British singer/songwriter Bridget St John – an album that shakes off a few of the folksy touches of earlier years, but still retains all the dark corners that make her work so great! A few tracks on the album have Bridget working with more traditional accompaniment, but overall most of the record still focuses strongly on voice and guitar – augmented slightly by additional instrumentation that's used sparingly, but beautifully. Most of the tracks here are still by St John – including "Nice", "Thank You For", "Happy Day", and "To Leave Your Cover" – but the album also features a few covers, like Buddy Holly's "Every Day" and Dylan's "Love Minus Zero No Limit". And the final CD features BBC recordings from 1968 to 1972 – including performances for Nite Ride, Top Gear, Peter Sarstedt, Bob Harris, and In Concert. CD
