Kooley HighNever Come Down (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Mecca, 2018. New Copy ... $18.99 19.99
Solid independent hip hop from the Raleigh, NC scene by Kooley High! MCs Charlie Smarts and Tab-One do their own thing here quite nicely, while paying subtle homage to soulful southern rap inspirations like earlier-era Outkast (particularly on this album's standout "Ceiling") and Little Brother (whose 9th Wonder serves as executive producer here) – as the voices of this tight group that includes DJ Ill Digitz and producers Foolery & Sinopsis. Other tracks include "We Don't Care", "Viola" feat Median, "Never Come Down", "Shambles" feat Carlitta Durand, "Either Way", "Cool Out/Tranquility", "No Favors", "Monogamy", "Action", "Thru The Lens" and more.

Matt BerryMatt Berry & The Maypoles Live ... LP
Acid Jazz (UK), 2015. New Copy ... $22.99
A pretty great live set from Matt Berry – one that strongly shows that his interest in music isn't just a side project for the comedian! Instead, Berry's at the helm of a group that has this really great blend of core mod elements and darker corners – almost as if the acid folk scene of the early 70s had stepped backwards and become the 60s beat groups – but with all the baggage from that backward voyage firmly intact! Berry sings lead vocals and plays keyboards – and the group also features backing vocals and clarinet from Cecilia Fage. Titles include the great "Take My Hand" – the theme from Toast Of London – plus "The Innkeeper's Song", "So Low", "October Sun", "Devil Inside Me", "The Pheasant", and "Medicine".

Severn DardenSound Of My Own Voice ... LP
Mercury, 1961. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $9.99
From hipster comedian to schlocky roles in The Planet of The Apes, Severn Darden was one of the 60s more enigmatic performers. This early album has him doing intellectual standup and skits with the help of the Second City cast – including Alan Arkin, Paul Sand, and Barbara Harris. The stuff's a bit dated, but it has that nice pre-hippy early 60s intellectual camp sort of twist. LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo pressing with deep groove.)

Cheo FelicianoCheo (remastered edition) ... CD
Fania, Mid 70s. Used ... $17.99
A wonderful mid 70s comeback from singer Cheo Feliciano – a set that still holds onto the soul of earlier years, but which also has a few wonderful touches of jazz in the mix! Arrangements here are by Bobby Valentin and Nick Jimenez, and they're played by a small combo that includes some especially great vibes by Louie Ramirez – ringing out on both traditional and modern numbers in a way that illuminates the record with some really wonderful tones and colors. Other players include Larry Harlow on piano, Bobby Valentin on bass, Johnny Pacheco on conga, and Charlie Rodriguez on tres – and the sound is wonderfully unified, really making the record one of Cheo's strongest! Titles include "Pienso En Ti", "Anacaona", "Si Por Mi Llueve", "Mano Caliente", "Medianoche Y Sol", "Poema De Otono", "Mi Triste Problema", and "Pa Que Afinquen". CD

Redd FoxxBoth Sides Of Redd Foxx ... LP
Loma, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Both sides of Redd Foxx – bawdy and classy! The album's one of Redd's great late 60s ones on Loma – produced with a higher quality than some of the indie and knock-off sessions that were floating around at the time – excellent sound that really highlights his sense of wordplay and timing, the key skills that really set him apart from other comedians at the time! Foxx really knows how to get down to business with his routines here – using a frankness that's totally great – that easy-going conversational mode that owes a bit to Lenny Bruce, but which comes off with more of a down to earth style. But it's also the way that he holds back that really makes the jokes great – the things left unsaid, but which are clearly pointed at – steeped in Redd's life experience, but delivered with a great sense of care.

Macklay/Reminick/Haydn/Fisher-LochheadSerious Business – Spektral Quartet (CD & blu-ray) ... CD
Sono Luminus, 2016. Used 2CD ... $3.99
A wonderful record from this important string quartet – a group who strike a fine balance between being playful and playing powerfully, and who have a really tremendous ear for unusual repertoire too! The cover and title might seem a bit gimmicky, but Spektral Quartet are far from that – as they really grab us right away with their unusual sense of string textures, and the greater sonic possibilities of the quartet – working here on some material commissioned especially for the group, and other compositions that they really transform in their performance. The set begins with the captivating "Many Many Cadences" – a piece that's exactly as the title describes – then moves into the "Ancestral Mousetrap", a suite of tracks that also features some text from Russell Edson performed by the group as they play. The album then makes an abrupt shift to Haydn's "String Quartet Op 33 No 2 – The Joke" – which is handled by the group with a style that's faithful to the writing, but also very individual as well – especially as it's followed by "Hack" – a long suite of very short tracks, which follows the "joke" thematically, as each section is titled after a comedian – "Sarah Silverman", "Lenny Bruce", "Dick Gregory", and so on – but all with individual performances that extrapolate the ideas of those performers through a modern string quartet interpretation. CD
(Features the album on CD, with bonus blu-ray audio.)

Rudy Ray MooreThis P*ssy Belongs To Me – The Second Rudy Ray Moore Album ... LP
Kent, Early 70s. Very Good ... $7.99
Rudy Ray Moore's second album, and almost hipper than the first – thanks to some key musical backings from The Fillmore St Soul Rebellion! The vibe here is as rough and raw as you'd expect – a no-holds-barred version of party records, with Rudy using plenty of language hardly heard this strongly on record again until the hip hop generation. The music's often mixed a bit lower than the vocals, but is still present enough to make things sound funky – and titles include the classic "Mr Big Dick", plus "The Gorillas Are Coming", "California Poetry", "Hurricane Anne Meets Dolemite", and "40 Pounds of Chitlings". Language is raw – so be warned! LP, Vinyl record album
(Comedian Series pressing. Cover has splitting on the spine & top seam.)

Piero PiccioniScusi Lei E Favorevole O Contrario ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1966. New Copy ... $22.99
Beautifully playful music from the great Piero Piccioni – done for a mid 60s film directed by and starring the Italian comedian Alberto Sordi, whose presence on screen is a great match for these sounds! Picconi uses some of his jazzy roots at times – including a cool bit of organ – but also works in some offbeat string passages, sometimes with solo violin doing very unusual things – and other times makes nice use of I Cantori Moderni, whose vocals are always a treat! Most tracks are short, and the score also has some lively, upbeat numbers that offset the dreamier ones in a great way – sometimes even with batucada-like percussion – and this stunning 34 track CD marks the first time that most of this music has ever been issued to the public.

Mort SahlFuture Lies Ahead ... LP
Verve, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $4.99
One of the brilliant albums recorded for Verve by 50s political comedian Mort Sahl. Sahl was a key figure in a line of west coast hipsters that included Dave Brubeck, Paul Desmond, Ralph J Gleason, and Cal Tjader – and his razor sharp wit was fueled by the paradoxes of both Eisenhower-era mainstream America, and the bohemian underground of San Francisco and LA. This live set is a perfect glimpse of his genius – always improvised, and completely well-informed about the events of the day, yet with enough distance to see the humor in just about any situation. LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label Verve Inc pressing, with deep groove. Cover has a split top seam.)

TemptationsTemptations Show ... LP
Gordy, 1969. Sealed ... $16.99
Tracks recorded for a TV show the Temps performed at the height of their popularity at the end of the 60s. The best cuts retain the strong heavy soul fuzzed-out groove of their studio albums – even if the album does feature the group doing material in medley form. For some strange reason, the show (and album) features a guest appearance from Kay Stevens (for some class, perhaps?), plus a more predictable visit from comedian George Kirby. Titles include "Runaway Child, Running Wild", "Somebody's Keeping Score", "Cloud Nine", "Beauty Is Only Skin Deep", and "Try It Baby". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing – sealed! Cover has a cutout mark, and there's one open corner in the shrinkwrap.)
