Jarrod LawsonJarrod Lawson (180 gram vinyl) (2018 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Soul Brother (UK), 2014. New Copy ... On April 21, 2018
A stunning debut from Jarrod Lawson – a singer we fell in love with right away – and who we'd rank right up there with some our favorite mellow soul artists of the 70s! Yes, the cover's got a look that's more indie rock – but Jarrod's got this righteous vibe and sense of flow that seems to tie together distant strands of influence – from Marvin Gaye to Gil Scott Heron to jazz singers like Al Jarreau, Kurt Elling, or Mark Murphy! Backings are jazzy, but with a focused, soulful groove – warmed up by keyboards, but kept fresh with lots of live instrumentation that really matches the rich sense of inflection in Lawson's voice – an amazing range, but one that's never overstated, overdone, or overused. All the tracks are originals – and the record's one that you'll be spinning for years to come! Titles include "Sleepwalkers", "Walk In The Park", "Redemption", "Needed", "Everything I Need", "All That Surrounds", "Spiritual Eyes", and "Together We'll Stand". (Note: This item is not for sale online until after the opening of business on Sunday, April 22.

✨✧ Led ZeppelinSong Remains The Same ... LP
Swan Song/Atlantic, 1976. Very Good- 2LP Gatefold ... $14.99
Arguably one of the greatest double-live albums of the classic rock generation – filled with extra long takes of Led Zep classics, most of which diverge very strongly from their studio versions! The real highlight here is the set's classic "Moby Dick", which features one of the greatest drum solos ever set to wax – but other tunes include "Rain Song", "Whole Lotta Love", "Stairway To Heaven", "No Quarter", and "Dazed & Confused". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the booklet. Vinyl has a mark that clicks on "Moby Dick". Cover has some ring & edge wear.)

Tom Lellis & The Metropole OrchestraSkylark ... CD
Adventure Music, 2009. New Copy ... $6.99 15.99
The richest album we've heard so far from vocalist Tom Lellis – a well-done set that has the overlooked singer backed strongly by the Metropole Orchestra! Given the setting, the album reminds us a bit of recent Verve dates from Mark Murphy – a sound that's timeless, yet not in any sort of easy too-standard way – very fresh charts for the orchestral backings, and heartfelt lyrics from Lellis that are never lost in the larger setting. Some tunes sparkle with creative changes in the vocals, while others are delivered in straighter ballad modes – both forms that Tom handles perfectly – and titles include "Mountain Flight", "Milton's Moment", "Tell Me A Bedtime Story", "Love Is", "Straight Up & Down", and "Taken To Heart".

Elmore LeonardCharlie Martz & Other Stories – The Unpublished Stories ... Book
Harper, 2015. New Copy ... $3.99 25.99
Some of the earliest work ever written by Elmore Leonard – a range of short stories from the 50s, some of which were even created while Leonard was working in the advertising business! The later Leonard style is definitely in effect here, but the stories are also shorter, more focused, and with a very sharp punch – more in line with postwar crime/detective pulp styles, with maybe a dose of Hemmingway – and without all the later twists, turns, and key complications that Leonard often brought to his famous books! The result is some great hard crime writing – with locales that stretch from Detroit jazz clubs to south of the border bullfight rings – all marked by a great sense of dialogue, which really moves the stories along sharply. 330 pages, softcover. Book

Bernard MacMahon/Allison McGourty/Elijah WaldAmerican Epic – The Companion Book To The PBS Series (hardcover) ... Book
Touchstone, 2017. New Copy ... $6.99 29.99
The companion book to the PBS series American Epic – presented on paper at a level that's as visually pleasing as the program itself! The book is full of vintage images, record scans, and an amazing array of photos – documenting the rise of American musical legends in the early part of the 20th century – including a number of influential figures who never fully got their due back in the day! The content is surprisingly hip, and sometimes goes underground – as chapters include looks at Charley Patton, The Carter Family, Mississippi John Hurt, The Hopi Indian Chanters, Will Shade & The Memphis Jug Band, Dick Justice & The Williamson Brothers, Lydia Mendoza, The Breaux Family, and Joseph Kekuku. Nearly every single page has an image, and the book is 279 very heavy pages, in a hardcover volume. Book

David MaranissOnce In A Great City – A Detroit Story (hardcover) ... Book
Simon & Schuster, 2015. New Copy ... $6.99 32.50
Not just a book on Motown – despite the image of The Supremes on the cover – but a story of Detroit itself – told as a series of intersecting paths that include the famous soul music label, as well as all the manufacturers, cultures, communities, and political forces that were shaping the city in the early 60s. The decline of Detroit has been a story for decades now – but David Maraniss looks at the city in the years before the fall – focusing on 1963, where he shows that tensions were already strong in some sectors, and the ground upon which so much was being built could easily shift and allow the whole thing to topple. The book is one of the most fascinating city portraits we've ever read – with lessons that are still completely essential to the 21st Century urban environment – and the whole thing is 441 pages, hardcover, with some black and white images.

Bob Marley & The WailersRastaman Vibration ... LP
Island, 1976. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $19.99
A righteous classic from the legendary Bob Marley – and a set that really pushed the roots reggae sound strongly into the mainstream – almost making the mode the defining global understanding of Jamaican music, thanks to the power and presence of the album! All the Marley Tuff Gong modes are gelling perfectly here – bad-stepping rhythms from The Wailers, sweet backup from the I-Threes, and even some great guitar lines from Chinna Smith – all to complement Marley's tremendous vocal power in the lead – rising here with majesty on tracks that include the classic "Roots, Rock, Reggae", plus "Crazy Baldhead","Rat Race", "Night Shift", "Positive Vibration", 'Who The Cap Fit", "Cry To Me", "Johnny Was", and "Want More". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing. Cover has light wear and a mark from sticker removal.)

Ben Marshall with Pete Townshend & Roger DaltreyWho – 50 Years – The Official History (hardcover) ... Book
Harper Design, 2015. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Way more than just another book about The Who – as this lavish, oversized volume is filled with beautiful vintage images – and is done in collaboration with Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend! The pair have provided lots of unusual photos and rare images – which make the whole book as visually stunning as it is a detailed history of the group, their background, their beginnings, and the many stops along their long musical journey. The pre-Who section is maybe the most compelling, as it looks at the lives and the backgrounds of Daltrey and Townshend before the group – and the whole thing even features a great discography and other nice bits at the end. 320 pages, hardcover, oversized. Book

James Vance MarshallWalkabout ... Book
New York Review Of Books, 1959. New Copy ... $4.99 12.95
The book that inspired the famous Nicolas Roeg film of the 70s – but a novel that's quite different in approach, and maybe more of a spiritual journey than the film ever was! Walkabout shares a similar narrative with the movie – two children lost in the outback of Australia – trying to find their way home, and encountering an Aboriginal boy on his walkabout – a spiritual quest that becomes joined with the others, in a dual journey of self-discovery. James Vance Marshall has a very different eye than Roeg, but the book is still extremely powerful in its own sort of way – and is maybe a late landmark in the world of colonial fiction. 124 pages, with an introduction by Lee Siegel.

Mike Marshall's Big TrioMike Marshall's Big Trio ... CD
Adventure Music, 2009. Used ... $1.99
The trio's no bigger than any other group of its size – just three members overall – yet their sound definitely earns the "big" tag in the title, as it offers up some wonderfully warm interplay between a host of acoustic stringed instruments! Mike Marshall plays his familiar mandolin, as well as guitar and mandocello too – alongside the violin of Alex Hargreaves and bass of Paul Kowert – the last of which is really our favorite feature of the record, as it's got a deep-toned sound that's totally great! Kowert's subtle work on strings really pushes the bottom level of the record down nicely – taking it past familiar acoustic modes, even those you might hear on other records by Marshall – although there's still some lively interplay from the lighter strings up top. Titles include "House Camp", "Little Bears", "Three Dragons", "Back To The Castle", "Boston Girl", "The Princess", and "Sweetsmill". CD

Martha & The VandellasDance Party ... LP
Gordy, 1964. Good+ ... $8.99
An album that definitely lives up to its title – but which also offers a lot more than you might expect – way more than just a few cash-in dancefloor tunes! True, the whole thing's pretty lively – and titles include the group's seminal version of "Dancing In The Street" – still the only version you'll really ever need, despite years and years of countless covers that always fall short of the mark. But the set's also got a wonderful range that really displays the lead power of Martha Reeves – hewn tightly to the supporting Vandellas backups – and filled with a rich sense of feeling on titles that include the classic "Nowhere To Run", plus other Motown goodies like "Hitch Hike", "Mickey's Monkey", and "The Jerk". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has some wear, with splitting seams.)

Mashuun/Magic 69Underground Made In Styria ... LP
Golden Pavilion (Portugal), 1973. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $34.99
A very raw set of tracks from two Austrian psych bands of the early 70s – presented here in a pretty bold representation of the original concert from 1973! Mashuun have a style that's maybe a bit more poetic than the more straightforward sound of Magic 69 – but both groups mark an evolution of earlier beat group modes into much more freewheeling territory – often a bit too sensitive to be prog, with tighter songs overall – but plenty of new ideas, and lots of fuzzy guitar! Magic 69 are maybe the most hard-rocking, but the presentation of the music has one track from each band interspersed with the other, which creates a nice sense of variety – and almost makes it feel like a more complicated concept album overall. Titles include "Lucky People", "Way Of All Flesh", "Sleeping For Years", "Lost Angeles", "Epitaph", and "Concrete Mixer" by Magic 69 – and "Pussy & Fly", "Be My World", "I Was The Rain", "Hey Sister", and "Violett" by Mashuun.

MatchmakersBubble Gum A Go Go (expanded edition) ... CD
RPM (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $6.99 14.99
Fantastic pop from The Matchmakers – a group who only went by that name on some of their records – as they were more of a studio project from UK producers Mark Wirtz an Kris Ife, and also issued work as The Guards, Fickle Finger, Krimson Kake, Happy Confusion, Cellophane Mop, Father's Brown, and Astronaut Alan & The Planets! Yet despite all those many names – which all appear here in the credits for the songs – the group had a unified sound in their unabashed love of a good hook, and the genius production they received on their tunes – often in that groundbreaking style you'll know from other Wirtz work of the 60s, with a compressed quality that's a strong precursor to the direction UK rock production would take in the 70s. The story behind these recordings is as great as the music itself – and is told in great detail in the notes – and the CD features 26 titles that include "Waiter", "Lover's Congregation", "Laila", "Baby Make Me Happy", "Sandy", "Fantastic Fair", "Fickle Lizzie Anne", "Turn Me On", "Two Timing Man", "Maybe Baby", "Cellophone Mary Jane", and "Goody Goody Goody".

Paul MauriatTransparence/Serenade ... CD
Mercury/Vocalion (UK), 1985/1989. Used ... $11.99
Two obscure 80s albums from Paul Mauriat – back to back on a single CD! Transparence is from the mid 80s – a time when the hit easy listening maestro Paul Mauriat was really trying to reinvent himself – mixing in some of his earlier slink with tunes that might be a bit more contemporary for the time – a mode that even has Mauriat tapping tracks by Wham and Madonna! The approach is maybe a bit more electric than some of the earlier albums – keyboards instead of acoustic piano, but still carrying the lead melody, over backings that also are more small and electric than fully orchestrated. Titles include "Like A Virgin", "Careless Whisper", "I Just Called To Say I Love You", "No More Lonely Nights", "Transparence", and "Easy Lover". Serenade is almost a return to some of the older Paul Mauriat modes – in the way the tunes might have some occasional classical references, fuller strings, and an isolated instrument in the lead – but all recorded with production modes that definitely mark the late 80s date of the album. Titles include "Penny Serenade", "Meditation", "Serenade A Coline", "Reverie", "Romance", and "Serenade". CD

John Mayall's Blues BreakersBare Wires ... CD
Deram/London/Rebound, 1968. Used ... $5.99
Another great step forward for the legendary John Mayall – proof that he was never just content to copy American blues modes, and always willing to bring something new to the table! Although steeped in sounds from the delta on up to Chicago, the record's also got a hipper, almost trippier feel at times too – long-winding interplay between the guitar and organ, and some slow-building rhythms that shake off blues stereotypes, and mark Mayall as having an equal ear for forward-thinking 60s rockers. The group here is great – with Mick Taylor on guitar, Henry Lowther on cornet, Chris Mercer on tenor, and Dick Heckstall-Smith on tenor and soprano sax – all playing in a freely creative mode that stands the test of time surprisingly well Titles include "I'm A Stranger", "Harley Quits", "Killing Time", "Sandy", "She's Too Young", and "No Reply".

Rob MazurekChimeric Stoned Horn (with 3D glasses) ... CD
Astral Spirits, 2017. New Copy ... $6.99
One of the trippiest Rob Mazurek albums in years, and one of the most mindblowing too – and that's before you even put on 3D classes to look at the album's cover art! The set was recorded at the experimental studios in the Marfa art colony in Texas – and Rob plays solo throughout, in layers of sound that combine his piccolo trumpet with electronics, sound samples, and even some spiritual vocalizations too! The approach is way different than the trumpet-meets-electronics modes of the ECM generation, or the work of players like Jon Hassell or Mark Isham – because Rob's approach is much more bold and powerful – and his electronics here often bring in raspy static or other elements that really offset the warmth of the trumpet. There's definitely some elements of Mazurek's earlier work with electronics – but the album also really reflects the greater level of spiritualism in more recent years. Titles include "Clap Thunder", "Arrival From A Distance", "Red Softly", "Stalking Light", "Stoned Horn", "Swarm Hands", and "Cube Of Rain". CD
