Malcolm ArnoldKey – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Columbia, Late 50s. Very Good ... $2.99
A pretty auspicious soundtrack album – for an obscure late 50s film that starred William Holden, Trevor Howard, and Sophia Loren. The album's got a nice harmony title theme – "The Key To Your Heart", sung by male singers directed by Mitch Miller – and which is also redone in a mellow instrumental version later. It's got one lighter instrumental number called "Chop Suey Polka" – then two long suite tracks ("Stella" and "U Boat Alley") which spin out as more serious orchestral passages. LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has moderate wear.)

Carlos MalcolmBustin Outta The Ghetto ... CD
AJP/BGP (UK), 1970. New Copy ... $8.99 14.99
Funky madness – and one of the greatest funky instrumental albums ever! This one's so rare that only a few funk collectors have it in their collection – but it's a totally massive bit of funk that's way more than just plain "rare" (which can sometimes also mean snoozy for collectors!) Malcolm's a funky bandleader from Kingston, Jamaica – and he's got an approach that's solidly rooted in American funk, but which also has slight (very slight) touches of Carribean rhythms. The record's not really reggae or rocksteady, but it's got a messed up groove that works perfectly – as the sharp funky instrumental tunes crack out with these odd jagged edges, or weirdly paced rhythms that make them even more compelling. A wonderful record, and way past the usual funky instrumental album. Just about every cut is excellent – and titles include "Bustin Outta The Ghetto", "Funky Junction", "Move With The Beat", "Track Full Of Soul", "Pound For Pound", and "Rockin In My Pocket". CD

Malcolm McLarenDouble Dutch/Hobo Scratch (She's Looking Like A Hobo) ... 12-inch
Island, 1983. Near Mint- (pic cover)... $8.99
The cut here is the "Hobo Scratch", the dub/scratch/instrumental version of "She's Lookin Like a Hobo". Definitely up there with one of finer breakin tracks – all the right elements without some of the more goofy vocal effects of some other electro tracks. (We won't comment on the kinda weak "Double Dutch".) 12-inch, Vinyl record

Philip Cohran & The Artistic Heritage EnsembleMalcolm X Memorial (A Tribute In Music) (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Zulu/Katalyst, 1968. Used ... $7.99
A brilliant tribute to the late Malcolm X – served up by Chicago's legendary Artistic Heritage Ensemble! The record's got an even farther-reaching sound than the group's self-titled effort – a flowing style that unfolds as their tribute to Malcolm rolls on – starting spare and earthy at first, then picking up a fuller, prouder, much more righteous groove as things really get going! As before, there's plenty of heavy percussion at the bottom of most tracks – topped by complicated horn passages that often verge on the exotic – and which have a tremendously captivating sound. The ensemble's led by the great Phil Cohran, who played with Sun Ra for a bit, and also plays cornet on the record – the rest of the group includes Charles Williams, Don Myrick, Louis Satterfield, Pete Cosey, Henry Gibson, Willie Woods, and Aaron Dodd – a lineup of players who also worked with Sun Ra, The Pharoahs, and Earth Wind & Fire! The LP's a suite of 4 tracks dedicated to Malcolm X, each capturing a period of his life, "Malcolm Little", "Detroit Red", "Malcolm X", and "El Hajj Malik El Shabazz". CD

✨✧ Archie SheppYasmina, A Black Woman/Poem For Malcolm ... CD
Charly/Affinity (UK), 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A tremendous bit of jazz history – 2 classic Archie Shepp albums on 1 CD! Yasmina features Archie Shepp at his spiritual best – recording in Paris in 1969, and absorbing a heck of a lot of pan-African influences! The centerpiece of the album is the amazing "Yasmina" – a long track that builds with passion and fire, pulsing with an intensity that you'd expect more from Pharoah Sanders than Shepp himself. Next up is "Sonny's Back", a wonderful straight jazz groover with Archie and Hank Mobley on twin tenors upfront – making a rare and memorable recorded appearance together! The set's capped off by a mellow version of "Body & Soul", one that points towards the more soulful side of Shepp's work in the 70s. Poem For Malcolm is one of Shepp's most memorable LPs for BYG. Side one has him playing with Burton Greene, Alan Silva, Philly Joe Jones, and Claude Delcloo on the extended Mamarose/Poem For Malcolm. The track starts out with very free playing, then moves into a more subdued passage, with Shepp's recitation of his "Poem For Malcolm". Side two has a great lineup that includes Grachan Moncour III, Malachi Favors, and Hank Mobley, who gives one of the wildest performances of his life! The group runs through the 20 minute track Rain Forest/Oleo, and begins with a dark, spare performance, then leaps into a reading of "Oleo" that's filled with fire. CD

BYG/Actuel, 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Beautiful work from Archie Shepp – a record that's filled with meaning and power, and which really stands out as a freer expression of his ideals while working on the European scene! The players here are an array of other BYG/Actuel luminaries – including Burton Green on piano, Grachan Moncur on trombone, Malachi Favors and Alan Silva on bass, and Philly Joe Jones and Claude Delcloo on drums. Hank Mobley makes a surprising appearance on a version of "Oleo" – joining Shepp's tenor after the first half of the track, which is titled "Rain Forrest". That side-long track is complemented by another long number on the flip – "Mamarose/Poem For Malcolm" – a very spiritual track with some nice vocalizations too. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousSlow Grind Fever Vol 6 – Still More Adventures In The Sleazy World Of Popcorn Noir ... LP
Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The "sleazy" in the title is definitely well-put – as the music here has a vamping, slinking sound that's pure sex – circa 1960 – pulled from a cool array of rare soul, blues, and R&B singles from the time! We love this series, and it never fails to turn us onto something we've never heard before – and the tunes sometimes mix in some exotic touches that are very nice, the kind of vibe you'd expect from the "popcorn noir" promise on the front. Titles include "Hard Head (part 1)" by Jon Thomas, "Voodoo Drums" by Aki, "Wild Child" by Donnie Elbert, "Medicine Man" by Jeanette B Washington, "Backwoods" by Bill Doggett, "Voodoo Kiss" by Don Sargent & The Buddies, "Tie Me Tight" by Bob Kayli, "Laugh My Heart" by Malcolm Dodds, "Comin Home" by Eddie Jacobs, and "Sinners" by Freddie & The Hitchhikers.

Margo Guryan29 Demos (red & blue vinyl pressing) ... LP
Modern Harmonic, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $34.99 36.98
Really wonderful work from Margo Guryan – an artist who was probably known more as a songwriter than a singer – especially for her groovy late 60s pop tunes! This package is heavy on those gems – presented in these great demo takes that are nice and stripped-down – often with just a bit of rhythm and electric piano in support of Guryan's sweet vocals – which echo the modes of Claudine Longet and some of the other artists of the time who sung her music. The set's an expanded version of a previous collection, and features great work from the late 60s and early 70s – titles that include "I Don't Intend To Spend Christmas Without You", "Sun", "The 8:17 Northbound Success Merry Go Round", "Sunday Morning", "I Love", "I'd Like To See The Bad Guys Win", "California Shake", "Why Do I Cry", "Under My Umbrella", and "Timothy Gone". LP package features two tracks not issued on the CD set – and also includes a Chip Taylor demo of "Someone I Know" and Malcolm McNeill demo of "Think Of Rain". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ HeliocentricsSunshine Makers (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Soundway (UK), 2017. New Copy ... $19.99 21.98
A masterful psychedelic funk soundtrack by Malcolm Catto & The Heliocentrics – a perfectly choice combo to score a documentary about the rise of LSD in the 60s! The set is all instrumental, and the group really goes above and beyond the call of duty on it, crafting an appropriately trippy – we're talking about a doc that tells the story of the 2 counterculture chemists at the heart of the LSD manufacturing underground of their era – but still remarkably cohesive set of signature Heliocentrics psych-funk-soul. There's a real sense of dramatic tension, and while the music is used incidentally in the film, it plays out wonderfully here as a standalone album on Soundway, with full length compositions that didn't make it into the film uncut! Includes "The Sunshine Makers", "The History Of LSD", "200 Kilos", "Chase Scene", "The Acid Trial", "Escape", "Scene Goes Bad", "Uptown Street Scene", "The Trip (Titles)", "Tim In Prison", "Owsley Bust Scene", "The Brotherhood Of Eternal Love", "Bikers" and more.

A record that seems to show a whole new side of the Heliocentrics – music that's every bit as trippy and funky as before, but which also seems open to a lot more musical currents as well – possibly because the record marks the group's debut on the Soundway label! This time around, they've got a moody female singer in the lead – Barbora Patkova, whose voice has a way of tripping out in the same was as the drums of Malcolm Catto, vibes and bass of Jake Verguson, and organ and flutes of Jack Yglesias! We've loved Catto's work for years, and the sound of the group is very much in his best legacy – even stretching back to his early Mo Wax material – but also augmented strongly by the more far-out and creative exotic elements that come to play here. Titles include "Human Zoo", "A World Of Masks", "Capital Of Alone", "Dawn Chorus", "The Silverback", "Oh Brother", and "Made Of The Sun". CD

IncognitoClassic Album Series (Who Needs Love/Adventures In Black Sunshine/Eleven/bonus tracks) (3CD set) ... CD
Dome (UK), 2002/2004/2005. New Copy 3 CDs ... $19.99
Three great albums from Incognito – served up at a mighty nice price, and with bonus tracks too! Who Needs Love is a gem from over a decade ago – and Jean-Paul "Bluey" Maunick pulled out all the stops on this set – working with a range of vocalists that includes Joy Rose, Kelli Sae, Tony Momrelle, Joy Malcolm, and Brazilian soul legend Ed Motta! The range of voices on the set really gives it a lot of depth – moving past the easy jazz funk moments of earlier sets, and going for an all-solid, all-soulful approach that really blows our mind! Great stuff all the way through – maybe their best album in years – and a record you'll be playing into the next decade. Titles include "Morning Sun", "Who Needs Love", "Stone Cold Heart", "Where Love Shines", "Blue", "Fly", "If You Want My Love", and "Cada Dia". On Adventures In Black Sunshine, the groove is sweetly soulful, with a jazzy undercurrent that hearkens back to the best west coast soul of the 70s – and Bluey's got the group honed to perfection, playing with a razor-sharp edge that keeps the tunes as funky as they are soulful! Vocals are by Maysa and Tony Momrelle – and tracks include "Don't Turn My Love Away", "This Thing Called Love", "The Principles Of Love", "Everything Your Heart Desires", "Close My Eyes", "25th Chapter", and "Mr Jones". Eleven is a record that's a great testament to Incognito's richly-collaborative spirit – a quality that makes plenty of room here for lead vocals by Maysa Leak, Imaani, and Carleen Anderson – and which benefits strongly from some great keyboard lines by Ski Oakenfull. But as usual, mainman Bluey is the one to thank for the record – because his sense of groove, and love of classic 70s-influenced soul comes through very strongly on all tracks – hitting an on-the-money sound that makes the group, and this latest album, stand head to head with some of the best soul acts of classic years. Another winner from Incognito – not a bit of fluff at all – and a sublime batch of tracks that includes "Jacaranda", "Show Me Love", "We Got Music", "Let The Mystery Be", "Will I Ever Learn", "I'll Get By", "As Long As It's You", and "When Tomorrow Brings You Down". Bonus tracks include the previously-unreleased "To Prove My Love" and "Feel The Real" – plus "Zaius (Ski Oakenfull mix)". CD

Gruff RhysSet Fire To The Stars ... CD
Twisted Nerve (UK), 2016. New Copy ... $9.99
A really great soundtrack from Gruff Rhys – a set that's maybe even more personal and beautiful than some of his more familiar records on his own! The music's for a film about the first week that poet Dylan Thomas spent in America in the 50s – but the sound is quite different from any sort of period scoring you might expect – which makes for a great juxtaposition with the images on the screen – as Rhys works with a small group, in instrumental modes that are heavy on guitar and piano, and beautifully augmented by string ensembles on a few especially nice tracks. Some titles have vocals, but most of the set's instrumental – and Elijah Wood, who's in the film, makes an appearance on the final track. Titles include "It Was Hot That Summer", "After Hours/Contentment", "Ticking Clock", "Set Fire To The Stars", "John Malcolm Brinnin", "Log Cabin 1", "Atom Bomb", and "Chop Shop". CD

The record's got a sweet electric groove that sounds mighty nice next to the Latin jazz arrangements on the set – almost in the feel of some of Candido's funky work from the time, but possibly even heavier! Justo Almario is on tenor and flute in the set – and Mongo's group here is a small combo, with electric bass, piano, and lots of sax and flute! Includes loads of great original tunes – like "Chambique", "Don't Step On My Tears", "Crazy Lady", "Besame", and "Malcolm X" – plus Mongo's semi-hit version of "Last Tango In Paris".

University Of Minnesota Press, 2010. New Copy ... $6.99 25.95
A heavyweight companion to the book England's Dreaming – Jon Savage's seminal history of the rise of punk in the UK in the 70s! This volume's far bigger than the main book – and features all the interview material that Savage collected for England's Dreaming – hundreds of pages of conversations with figures who include Malcolm McLaren, Chrissie Hynde, Johnny Rotten (Lydon), Paul Cook, Tony Wilson, Howard Devoto, Viv Albertine, Jah Wobble, Joe Strummer, Adam Ant, Siouxsie Sioux, Captain Sensible, Vic Godard, Poly Styrne, Don Letts, and far too many more to mention here! The book presents all the interview text that Savage collected – grouped into specific scenes or moments they illuminate – and the whole thing clocks in at over 700 pages, and is as fascinating a read as you might expect.

Nina SimoneNina Simone Sings Ellington ... CD
Colpix/Warner (Japan), 1962. New Copy ... $14.99
Nina sings Ellington – but as always, she makes whatever she sings all her own! The album's a bit straighter than later efforts – with large backings by Stu Phillips that also feature vocals by the Malcolm Dodds Singers – but Nina also conceived the whole thing herself, as an effort to bring a new level of spiritualism to Ellington's work. The result is a masterpiece – proof that even in her early years, Nina could completely transform anything she laid her hands on – and unlock a soulful depth that even the original recordings might have missed. Titles include "I Got It Bad", "Solitude", "The Gal From Joe's", "It Don't Mean A Thing", and "I Like The Sunrise". CD

Excellent work from the earliest years of The Skatalites – a time when the group were one of the sharpest things going in Jamaican music, and also added musical support to a number of singers as well! This killer collection brings together the hippest singles from the combo – work that's very different than some of the sounds of their revival years – with a fresh, youthful quality that effortlessly mixes influences from R&B and jazz with the nascent Jamaican grooves of blue beat and ska! Most tunes here are instrumentals by the group, but there's also a few vocal tracks too – and titles include "Rum Bumpers" by John & Alton, "Home Home Home" by Ken & Stranger, "Mouth A Massy" by Alton Ellis, "Portrait Of My Love" by Baba Brooks, and "John & James" by The Maytals – plus "Black Joe", "Hello Mother", "Malcolm X", "Collie Bud", and "Baby Elephant Walk" by The Skatalites.

The record features 4 long tracks played by a group that also includes Terje Rypdal, John Taylor, Malcolm Griffiths, and John Marshall – all playing loosely and sparely alongside Surman – in a way that's never too overindulgent or domineering. Titles include "Norwegian Soul – Septimus", "Hinc Illae Lacrimae – For Us All", and "Iron Man". LP, Vinyl record album

Leon ThomasSpirits Known & Unknown ... LP
Flying Dutchman, 1969. Good+ Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
Wonderful work from Leon Thomas – easily one of his greatest albums ever, and a set that was recorded at the same time he was working with Pharoah Sanders! Thomas really rose to fame on Sanders' classic "The Creator Has A Master Plan" – and this set really takes off from that moment – letting Leon spin out some spiritual vibes of his own, and step into a few fresh new styles as well! The album's plenty righteous right from the start – partly because the lineup includes James Spaulding on alto and flute, Lonnie Liston Smith on piano, Cecil McBee on bass, and the enigmatic "Little Rock" on tenor – who is actually Pharoah Sanders – but also because Leon serves up a shorter take on "The Creator Has a Master Plan" – done in a great style! The album also features a classic vocal take on Horace Silver's "Song for My Father", with lyrics that we totally love – plus the frenetic "Malcolm's Gone" – and the tracks "One", "Echoes", "Let The Rain Fall On Me", and "Damn Nam".

A modern day spiritual jazz treasure – completely wonderful all the way through, and a set you might well file proudly next to your classics from John Coltrane and Pharoah Sanders! The record's as epic as it promises in the title – a three volume journey in jazz, headed by tenorist Kamai Washington, who emerges here as a tremendous leader, a hell of a writer, and a rich jazz talent in every sense of the word – carefully steering a group of musicians through work that's searing, searching, and driven with a very cosmic vibe! Tunes are often modal, and never step too far outside, but always push the boundaries – and the instrumentation is a shifting mix of keyboards, piano, trombone, trumpet, bass, drums, and percussion – plus some vocal performances from Dwight Trible and Patrice Quinn. You might know Kamasi from his work with Flying Lotus and Thundercat – the latter of whom plays bass on this set – but the album's very much his own, and very much jazz all the way through. The kind of record we're mighty proud to be offering – with tracks that include "Askim", "The Next Step", "Rhythm Changes", "Miss Understanding", "Leroy & Lanisha", "Re Run", "Seven Prayers", "Malcolm's Theme", and "The Message".

Those slow grinders are at it again – giving us a heady helping of their "popcorn noir" genre – a style they seem to have coined themselves! The groove here is every bit as great as previous volumes – bits of jazz, R&B, and more – all served up from a host of cool, catchy singles you'd never hope to find in the original – and which work here perfectly to create a great late nite sort of vibe! Make no mistake, most of these numbers are groovers – just the kind that are a bit more kicked back, for post-midnight listening! CD features material from vinyl volumes 5 and 6 – 28 titles that include "Senor Blues" by Rose Hardaway, "Strange Is Love" by The Marquis, "Haunted Sax" by The Night Caps, "Tremblin" by Birdie Green, "Nature Boy" by The Shields, "My Baby" by Nappy Brown, "I Want A Lip" by April Stevens, "Comprende" by Hillard Street with Jack Marshall, "Satan Is Her Name" by Steve King & The Echelons, "Hard Head (part 1)" by Jon Thomas, "Voodoo Drums" by Aki, "Wild Child" by Donnie Elbert, "Medicine Man" by Jeanette B Washington, "Backwoods" by Bill Doggett, "Voodoo Kiss" by Don Sargent & The Buddies, "Tie Me Tight" by Bob Kayli, "Laugh My Heart" by Malcolm Dodds, "Comin Home" by Eddie Jacobs, and "Sinners" by Freddie & The Hitchhikers.

✨✧ Archie SheppFire Music ... CD
Impulse/MCA, 1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Fantastic stuff – easily one of Archie Shepp's greatest albums, and certainly one of the pivotal points of 60s avant garde jazz! The album features Shepp leading a crack "new thing" line up that includes Ted Curson on trumpet, Marion Brown on alto, Joe Chambers on drums, Reggie Johnson on bass, and the lesser-known Joseph Orange on trombone – all playing in a beautifully poised manner, never too far out and free, but with all the dynamic energy of the best jazz changes of the 60s! There's a vibe here that's similar to some of the Blue Note "new thing" work by players like Grachan Moncur, Jackie McLean, and Tony Williams from the time – but there's a vision that's also wider and deeper, too, given the size of the group and the way they interact. Titles include "Hambone", "Los Olvidados", "Malcolm Malcolm–Semper Malcolm", and an insane cover of "Girl From Ipanema". You can't go wrong with this one – trust us! CD
