✨✧ Les BaxterBlack Sunday ... CD
Kritzerland, 1960. Used ... $11.99
The spookier side of Les Baxter – an amazing soundtrack penned for the film debut of director Mario Bava! The film was somewhat notorious in the US, but was actually from Italy – and it's got a quality that's darker than even the darkest of the Italian horror classics of the time – really creepy demonic and torture images, which seem to inspire Baxter to hit new styles he'd never touched at the time! There's definitely some echoes of Les' more familiar exotic modes, but everything is much more tense and dramatic – as if the local witch doctor had knocked over the tiki hut, and started burning all the south seas tourists at the stake. Presentation of the material here is really great – lots of bonus tracks, and notes on the film, plus spooky images too – and titles include "That's The Man/Find Her", "Katia Alone & Afriad", "Bleeding Dogs/Firey Drapes", "Kruvajan/Asa Alive", "Main Titles", and "Drinking At The Inn/Scary Woods".

Capitol/Bear Family (Germany), Late 40s/Early 50s. Used 4CDs ... $59.99
A massive amount of work from a time when Tex Ritter was at the top of his game – star of stage and radio, and also an important force on the rising west coast country scene too! The package features a total of 111 recordings, 19 never issued – all recorded for Capitol when the label was doing an amazing job with material like this. Tex gets lots of great help on the sides, too – instrumentation that includes contributions from Merle Travis, Speedy West, Cliffie Stone, Harold Hensley, and even arranger Les Baxter. Comes with a big booklet of notes and images – in the usual great Bear Family style! CD

✨✧ Steely DanCan't Buy A Thrill ... CD
ABC/MCA, 1972. Used ... $4.99
The first album from Steely Dan, and already a leading light in the world of 70s rock! The album's got a bit less of the polish of later years, but is still filled with gems – the kind of tunes that nobody ever seemed to pen before, and which few other groups could match later – despite the countless legions who tried! There's less jazz too, but the guitars are all nice and strong – that sharp Skunk Baxter edge that helped get the group firmly onto the charts right away. Titles include "Do It Again", "Dirty Work", "Kings", "Midnite Cruiser", "Only A Fool Would Say That", "Reelin' In The Years", "Fire In The Hole", "Brooklyn (Owes The Charmer Under Me)", "Change Of The Guard", and "Turn That Heartbeat Over Again".
