Leonard CohenFuture (Live in London)/Suzanne (Live In London) ... 7-inch
Columbia, 2008. Sealed ... $7.99
Leonard Cohen sounds incredible on a couple of his classic numbers – from the Live In London release – recorded in 2008! All of those years off the road for Cohen actually has his voice sounding excellent, far better than on a couple of the most recent studio albums. A single edit of "The Future" is on the a-side and "Suzanne" is on the flip. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Leonard CohenNew Skin For The Old Ceremony (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Columbia/Sundazed, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99 28.99
New Skin for Leonard Cohen, who by 1974 was ready to start singing with a bit more flair, and do so over more textured arrangements – but still raw both emotionally and in the unglossy instrumentation! The core of the sound is still Cohen's voice, his words, and acoustic guitar – but this record brings in some ragged acoustic instrumentation and loose percussion, as well as some more layered strings, some winds, and backing vocals – Janis Ian among the vocalists. On later records, bigger productions would nearly choke the natural life out of Cohen's songs, but this is one of those totally great records where the change in sound would actually enhance the material in the studio – allowing for one of his best albums of the 70s. Titles include "Is This What You Wanted", "Chelsea Hotel #2", "Lover Lover Lover", "Field Commander Cohen", "Ther Is A War", "A Singer Must Die", "Leaving Greensleeves" and more.

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

Leonard CohenSongs Of Love & Hate (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Columbia, 1971. New Copy ... $18.99 24.98
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". LP, Vinyl record album

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 ... $64.99
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

Al StewartOrange (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia/Esoteric (UK), 1972. New Copy ... $15.99
A surprisingly wonderful album from Al Stewart – recorded early in his career, with a very different sound than his later work! Al here is steeped in a tradition that stretches back a few years hence – to Dylan and Leonard Cohen – but which also includes elements of the jazz-based British sound of the time, stretching the songs out with some really lyrical flourishes, a perfect mate for Al's Dononvan-ish vocal style. The tracks are all pretty compelling – slightly poetic, with traces of Nick Drake-styled folkisms – and the album makes us wish we had a way to discover more of Al's work from the time! Titles include "Once An Orange Always An Orange", "Amsterdam", "You Don't Even Know Me", "The News From Spain", "Songs Out Of Clay", "Night Of The 4th Of May", and "I'm Falling". CD features two bonus tracks – "News From Spain (single version)" and "Elvaston Place". CD

Sherill TippinsInside The Dream Palace – The Life & Times Of New York's Legendary Chelsea Hotel (hardcover) ... Book
Houghton Mifflin, 2013. New Copy ... $4.99 30.00
Over the years, New York's Chelsea Hotel has been way more than just a place to stay when you're in the city – and instead has gone onto become a legendary cultural force in itself – the temporary home to countless artists, musicians, and writers – including Allen Ginsberg, Janis Joplin, Sid Vicious, Andy Warhol, Leonard Cohen, Dylan Thomas, Thomas Wolfe, Arthur Miller, and many others! And while this history is huge – the bigger part of the book, told in wonderfully vivid detail – the Chelsea is also threatened in New York's current big wave of development, which has the latter section of the book looking at efforts to save and preserve the hotel, which has become as much of a cultural force in the city as some of its museums and galleries. The book is very densely written – a rich history, not a fluff piece – 457 pages, hardcover, with some great black and white images! Book

✨✧ Jennifer WarnesSee Me, Feel Me, Touch Me, Heal Me ... LP
Parrot, 1969. Very Good ... $7.99
Jennifer Warnes is probably best known for her later fame singing hit songs from films, or for her work with Leonard Cohen – but here, she's just known as Jennifer – a lovely little pop singer with a slightly folksy, hippieish feel! Al Capps arranged and produced, and the style's kind of the sadder side of sunshine pop – a bit like some of Jennifer's female folk rock contemporaries, but with some slightly more sophisticated themes in the tunes. Titles include "Old Folks", "Let The Sunshine In", "Easy To Be Hard", "Tell Me Again I Love Thee", "We're Not Gonna Take It", and "Time Is On The Run". LP, Vinyl record album

Michael YonkersGrimwood (with download) ... LP
Nero's Neptune, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
A lost late 60s folk set from Michael Yonkers – material that's very much at the darker end of the spectrum, and in a spirit we'd link with the best from artists like Leonard Cohen, Fred Neil, or Tom Rapp at the time! Like both of those singers, Yonkers isn't really a folkie – at least in the 60s familiar sense – and sings in this way that's instantly timeless, and really fits the dark, moody feel of his lyrics – which often direct the music far more than his guitar – which itself has these special tunings and almost jazzy chromes at points, although his playing is never anywhere near jazz. Titles include "Grimwood", "Lonely Fog", "The Day Is Through", "Sunflower", "Tripping Through The Rose Gardens", and "The Thing Called Love". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousNick Cave Heard Them Here First ... CD
Ace (UK), 1950s/1960s/1970s. New Copy ... $14.99
Nick Cave is a man of many influences – sounds from so many different styles of music, which he's used to forge into his own uniquely personal style over the years! And Cave's never been secret about the music that moves him, either – and always gives credit where credit's due – both by referencing important influences in his interviews, and by covering their work on his records. That latter side of Nick's recordings is collected here – the original versions of songs that Cave later recorded himself – a really rich tapestry of rock, soul, jazz, country, and blues from the 20s onwards – but with an especially strong focus on the postwar years. There's a surprising sense of unity to the collection – despite the difference in years and artists – and titles include "Long Time Man" by Tim Rose, "Hey Joe" by The Leaves, "Tower Of Song" by Leonard Cohen, "Bedazzled" by Peter Cook & Dudley Moore, "Long Black Veil" by Lefty Frizzell, "There's No Night Out In The Jail" by Chad Morgan, "Burnin Hell" by John Lee Hooker, "Knoxville Girl" by The Louvin Brothers, "The Big Hurt" by Toni Fisher, "Moritat" by Harald Paulson, and "Hammer Song" by The Sensational Alex Harvey Band.

✨✧ Roberta FlackKilling Me Softly ... LP
Atlantic, 1973. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original die-cut cover.)
