Bush BabeesGravity (single vinyl pressing) ... LP
Warner, 1996. Near Mint- ... $24.99
While we did like the Bush Babees first LP, it veered a bit further into the commercial realm than we care for on some cuts, probably due to Jermaine Dupri's involvement. This second effort, available only as a promo on vinyl, is the one to check for. There's less of the ragga style here, and tight post-Native Tongues production by Mr. Man, Shawn J Period, the Ummah, Rahzel and Pos of De La. In fact we'd be tempted to call this second generation Native Tongues, if it didn't stand so well on it's own, and merit guest spots that seem more like full fledged participation by Q-tip and Mos Def. Includes "God Complex", "Melting Plastic", "The Love Song", "Gravity", "Wax", "3 MCs", "Rock roots", "SOS", "Maybe", "The Beatdown", "The Ruler", "In Meh Dreams" and "The Ninth Presentation".

✨✧ TwinkThink Pink (mono – with bonus 7 inch) ... LP
Decca/MRI, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A legendary album from the Brit psych scene at the end of the 60s – and one of the few records from that time that's still completely mindblowing all these many years later! Twink is John Alden, who'd had already had years of work behind him before putting together this set – including stints with Tomorrow and Pretty Things – and the direction here is very different than most of what was taking place at the time – much looser and more experimental, as the album seems to leap into very heady territory right from the start! There's no effort at putting out an easy single or crossover hit – and instead, some of these tunes have a sonic complexity that almost prefaces later more experimental work from the British scene, including the 80s industrial years – with one number that's just kind of a weird melange of voices, and another that's a lot of noise on drums, sitar, tablas, and effects – as well as a "pixie horn"! A few of the more vocal numbers – like the standout "Suicide" or "Three Little Piggies" – almost feel like work from Wicker Man – and other titles include "The Coming Of The One", "Ten Thousand Words In A Cardboard Box", "Fluid", "Dawn Of The Majic", "The Sparrow Is A Sign", and "Mexican Grass War". Includes bonus Aquarian Age single – pre Twink, with production by Mark Wirtz! LP, Vinyl record album
(First ever vinyl release of the original 1969 mono mix!)

✨✧ Tom Ze/Jorge BenJimmy Renda Se/Take it Easy My Brother Charlie ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1968/1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the grooviest tunes ever from Tom Ze – an artist you may know best for his more offbeat work of the 70s, but who gets nice and funky here on "Jimmy Rende Se" – yet at a level that keeps all his vocal complexity intact! The flipside features Jorge Ben's classic "Take It Easy My Brother Charlie" – one of the singer's first great funky soul tunes, and a cut that definitely woke up the world to a whole new side of his talents! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Walter NorrisStepping On Cracks ... CD
Progressive/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $9.99
Genius work from the always-compelling Walter Norris – a pianist with a sense of complexity that's always mesmerizing, but one who can also find a way to effortlessly swing at the same time – which he does beautifully on this overlooked set from the early 80s! Most tracks are long, and filled with the kind of soaring lines and cascading tones that Walter can bring to the piano – lyrical lines, but also punctuated with a sharper edge too – given beautiful support here from bassist George Mraz, whose work at this point in his career is always fantastic – and drummer Ronnie Bedford, who lays back, and comes in at just the right moments. Titles include "Giant Steps", "A Child Is Born", "Stepping On Cracks", and "Falling In Love With Love". CD

✨✧ Frank ZappaHot Rats ... LP
Bizarre, 1969. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
One of those records that should be an insane dark mess, given the look of the cover – but which turns out to be a surprisingly well put-together effort all the way through! Zappa does a great job of hiding behind his hair here – never acting with the pomp that a pop genius like him could easily have enacted – and instead passing off the record as if it's just another freakout – despite the fact that the arrangements are some of his tightest, most focused, and downright groovy so far! There's plenty of key musical help to make the whole thing come out right – including bass from Shuggie Otis, the inimitable voice Captain Beefheart, on the cassic "Willie The Pimp", violin from Jean-Luc Ponty, drums from Paul Humphrey, and bass from Max Bennett – all players who really live up to the musical complexity of Zappa's compositions – often with a pre-fusion vibe that's almost unexpected. Other titles include "Son Of Mr Green Grass", "The Gumbo Variations", "It Must Be A Camel", "Peaches In Regalia", and "Little Umbrellas". LP, Vinyl record album
