Nick DrakeFamily Tree (previously unreleased) ... CD
Island/Universal (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $9.99
The long-awaited official release of these rare early songs from Nick Drake – home recordings done before his three classic albums on Island Records, somewhat restored and remastered by his original sound engineer! The quality here is a fair bit better than most of the bootlegs from these years, and the overstuffed package features a whopping 28 tracks in all – beginning with more straightly-folksy tunes, and moving into territory that shows the more sophisticated styles that Drake would explore on his albums for Island. A few tracks feature vocals by his mother, Molly Drake, but the bulk of the work is by Nick – and overall, there's a surprisingly great quality to most of the tunes – the nascent genius that would emerge fully formed on Five Leaves Left. Titles include "Blossom", "Been Smoking Too Long", "Tomorrow Is A Long Time", "Here Come The Blues", "If You Leave Me", "Blues Run The Game", "My Baby So Sweet", "Kimbie", "Bird Flew By", "Rain", "Strange Meeting II", "Come In To The Garden", "Poor Mum", "Time Piece", and "Strolling Down The Highway".

✨✧ VariousPunk 45 Vol 2 – There Is No Such Thing As Society – Underground Punk & Post Punk In The UK 1977 to 1981 ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
An amazing second foray into the world of punk rock 45s – and the British chapter to the previous American volume from Soul Jazz! Like the first set, the track selection here is superb – no overdone punk "oldies" or overplayed classics – and instead a great range of work from the lower levels of the late 70s British underground – including a fair bit of tracks from artists who never got to cut a full length album! There's also a great ear for music that goes past any simple punk cliches – songs that are smarter than the usual lot, have a good sense of perspective, and often offer up a sort of commentary on the quickly-evolving music in some way or another. The notes are great – super-thorough and filled with cover images for each single, plus other info too – and titles include "Wot's For Lunch Mum" by The Shapes, "I Wanna Be Free" by The Rings, "Neutron Bomb" by Art Attacks, "Sick Of You" by The Users, "Mucky Pup" by Puncture", "White Night" by The Lines, "You're Driving Me" by The Cravats, "Real Shocks" by Swell Maps, "Johnny Doesn't Want To Go To Heaven" by The Killjoys, "Power Cut" by The Jermz, and "East Sheen" by O Level.

CoultrainJungle Mumbo Jumbo ... LP
Plug Research, 2013. New Copy ... $9.99
The long-overdue return of Coultrain – an artist we've been digging right from the start, when he dropped off a pile of handmade CDs as freebies to give away in our store! Since that time, Coultrain has emerged to become one of the freshest talents of the underground – through work with the Platinum Pied Pipers and Hawthorne Headhunters, and work on other projects as well. But we've always loved the man himself out front of the spotlight – sharing his really unique vision of cosmic soul music – a sublime blend of inventive sounds, creative beats, and songwriting that will take you way way way past the usual! This album's been well worth the wait, and shows that our faith in Coultrain has certainly been well-placed – a beautiful set that features the tracks "A Gem Iza Jewel", "Gazelle's Dance", "Y Not", "Deception", "Sassyphrass", "Wanted", and "Asherah Le Chameleon".

CybotronCybotron ... CD
Dual Planet/Clear Light Of Jupiter (Australia), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
Cybotron's self-titled record from 1976 – and it's a remarkably prescient set of experimental synth rock instrumentals! It's a bit akin the work of German pioneers like Neu! And Tangerine Dream, but Cybotron is actually the work of Australians Steve Maxwell Von Braund and Geoff Green (not to be confused with the groundbreaking Detroit techno Cybotron, who would rise to fame in the 80s) – both synth maestros and multi-instrumentals, and the former also blows a mean alto sax – and they really craft a spacey bit of genius here! It's especially forward-thinking given some of the programmed drums – predicting the 80s a good half-decade early – and it sounds great! Includes "Arrakis", "Mumbo Jumbo", "Gods Of Norse", "Parameters Of Consciousness" and the "Sonic Overide" suite. CD

Bo DiddleyHave Guitar Will Travel ... LP
Checker, 1960. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Have guitar, will travel – and back in the day, Bo Diddley was going pretty darn far with great material like this! The album's a real standout, even in the classic Chess catalog of the early years –no filler, no covers, just all original material by Bo Diddley – done in that unique Diddley blend of fast riffing guitar, playful vocals, and odd rhythms that often chug along at a really frenetic pace, especially in these pre-funk years! A key influence on funky music for many years to come, and a record that explodes from the very first note – on a set of original tracks that include "Run Diddley Diddley", "Mumblin Guitar", "Say Man, Back Again", "Come On Baby", "Dancing Girl", "She's Alright", and "Cops & Robbers".

Joao DonatoLugar Comum ... CD
Universal/Dubas (Brazil), 1975. Used ... $13.99
A sweet electric 70s session from the mighty Joao Donato – very different than his earlier bossa work of the 60s – and with the same funky appeal as the best work on his classic Quem E Quem album! This set's got a tighter feel overall – very much in a samba soul style, with lots of great Brazilian bits mixed up with funk and jazz touches – including a range of great keyboards handled by Donato himself! Drums are by the mighty Wilson Das Neves – who brings in some breaks at a few points – and the whole thing's supremely soulful too – with titles that include the funky classic "Bananeira", plus "Patumbalacunde", "Lugar Comum", "Tudo Tem", and "Naturalmente".

Billy EckstineNo Cover No Minimum (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Roulette, 1960. Used ... $7.99
A really great album by Billy Eckstine – much more swinging and upbeat than some of his other 50s sessions, and with a strongly pronounced jazz flair overall! The album's supposedly recorded live in Vegas in the wee hours of the morning, and features Billy blowing a bit of trumpet as well as singing – all set to some nicely thumping orchestrations by Bobby Tucker, who really knows how to hit the right groove for this sort of a set. Titles include "Lady Luck", "Have A Song On Me", "Deed I Do", "Without A Song", "Moonlight In Vermont", and "Lush Life". CD features a huge amount of previously unissued bonus tracks – titles that include "Prelude To A Kiss", "Fools Rush In", "I Apologize", "Little Mama", "Prisoner Of Love", "Alright Okay You Win", and "In The Still Of The Night".

Orrin EvansLiberation Blues ... CD
Smoke Sessions, 2014. New Copy ... $12.99 15.99
A wonderful session from pianist Orrin Evans – one of the most richly talented players of his generation – always great, no matter what the setting! We've recently dug Evans in trio and larger group formats – but this set's got him cooking strongly with a quintet – a tight lineup that has Sean Jones on trumpet and JD Allen on tenor – but each dropping out a bit near the end to let Evans showcase his trio as well! The horns hold sway on most of the record, though – including the wonderful Liberation Blues Suite – which is penned for Dwayne Burno, and features both his own music and tunes by Evans as well. The set continues with great sounds that really forward the righteous vibe – and titles include "A Free Man", "Liberation Blues", "Juanita", "Devil Eyes", "Simply Green", "Anysha", "Meant To Shine", and "Mumbo Jumbo". Also includes a bonus encore – "The Night Has A Thousand Eyes", with vocals by Joanna Pascale. CD

John LennonPlastic Ono Band ... CD
Apple/Capitol, 1970. Used ... $3.99
Lennon's first proper solo LP, after the breakup of the Beatles, recorded largely by himself, with some help from Yoko, Phil Spector, Ringo Starr, Klaus Voorman, and Billy Preston. One of those pieces of the rock canon that it seems hardly anything needs to be said about it at this point, but we'll at least offer it's one of the greatest stripped down rock statements/confessionals of all time, in spite of the fact that you can read that just about anyplace else you care to look. Includes "Mother", "Hold On", "I Found Out", "Working Class Hero", "Isolation", "Remember", "Love", "Well Well Well", "Look At Me", "God" and "My Mummy's Dead". CD

LitterDistortions (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Sundazed, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 21.98
A great title for this gritty set of tracks from The Litter – awash in freak and fuzz, and free to push the needles on your meters way into the red! The set's a perfect batch of mid 60s garage – early genius from The Litter – one of those groups who may well have had more power at their start than they ever did in later years. The songs pack a solid punch, yet are plenty tuneful too – with organ lines soaring right alongside the guitar, all wrapped up together in fuzzy glory. Titles include "I'm So Glad", "Codine", "Soul Searchin", "The Mummy", and "Somebody Help Me". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ RicoMan From Wareika (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Island (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $13.99
A major outing from Rico Rodriguez – one of the great Trombonists of the pre-ska era, who continued to lead the way with his horn throughout all the periods Jamaican music would morph through, but maintained a sound rooted in jazz. The group is pretty large, sort of a Jamaican all stars, with names like Sly & Robbie, Skully, and Dirty Harry, and they run through some nice jazzy instrumentals, with a crisp syncopated island rhythm chugging along underneath. There's 9 tracks on the original album, including "Gunga Din", "Lumumba", "Over The Mountain", "Dial Africa" and "This Day", plus an additional 9 tracks of bonus material on the CD version, including "You Really Got Me", "Midnight In Ethiopia", "Free Ganja", "Take Five" and "Ska Wars".

Keni StevensBlue Moods (with bonus tracks) ... CD
FTG, 1987. Used ... $3.99
Blue moods and mellow grooves from Keni Stevens – an overlooked slow jam from back in the day! The tunes all move along nice and easy – never pushing things too far, and even keeping the beats, when used, to a minimum – leaving lots of space for Keni's slinky vocals in the mix, and hitting this great late nite soul style – just the sort of record we'd love to slip in for a laidback evening of quiet storm listening. Titles inlcude "Blue Moods", "Spend The Night", "Shine", "Night Moves", "Passionate", "Cannot Live Without Your Love", and "Too Much Too Soon". CD features lots of bonus tracks too "Spend The Night (food of love mix)", "Passionate (young and in dub mix)", "All Day All Night", "Night Moves (a dark secret mix)", and "Blue Moods (black magic mix)".

VariousAndy Smith Greensleeves Document ... CD
Greensleeves (UK), 1980s. Used ... $4.99
Andy Smith applies his magical Documentary touch to the Greensleeves catalog and produces another winning mix in his Document series! Like the bouncing reggae mix he produced for Trojan, this set pulls together a winning set of island grooves, and given that he's delving into the Greensleeves vaults, you know this set is aimed squarely a the dancehall, with easy rocking vibes from start to finish, but there's no shortage of nice roots cuts too! 27 tracks in all, including "Firehouse Rock" by the Wailing Souls, "The Mummy's Shroud" by Scientist, "Jacqueline" by Hugh Mundell, "Brick By Brick" by Brother Culture, "Police In Helicpter" by John Holt, "Love Feelings" by Cultural Roots, "Fire Bun A Weak Heart" by Bushman, "I'm Not Crazy" by Don Carlos, "Baby I Love You So" by Jacob Miller, "Children Children" by Toyan, and "Trouble Again" by King Kong.

VariousEccentric Soul – Capitol City Soul ... CD
Numero, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99 18.98
The Numero Group takes a great step backwards – returning to the capital city of Ohio, Columbus – to mine the same soul and funk treasure trove of their Capsoul collection! The music here comes from the same scene – and often from Capsoul or related labels – and the set offers up a stunning array of rare gems, many of which were never even pressed on record – all showing Columbus to be one of the funkiest, grooviest cities in the US during the early 70s! Lots of the work here has that same heavy groove that we love from the Capsoul collection – and since that initial Numero foray into the compilation business, the label has only become more skilled at unearthing and presenting great sounds like this. The package features notes on both the music and the project of researching it – plus a long appendix on the local labels featured, along with photos and label scans too! Titles include "Woe Is Me" by Kool Blues, "I Need Your Love" by Chandlers, "Funky Disposition" by Dean Francis & Soul Rockers, "Lose The One You Love" by Soul Partners, "Look In The Mirror" by Vondors, "Hysteria" by Four Mints, "This Is The Way That I Am" by La Fez, "When He's Gone" by Associated Press, "Excuse Me Miss" by Jupiter's Release, and "I've Been Trying" by Love Maximum.

RicoWareika Dub (aka Warrika Dub) ... LP
Island, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
A sweet, classic dub companion to Rico's excellent Man From Wareika set. The original record was an instrumental affair to begin with, so this set reworks the mixes with the parts ducking in and out with a few tasteful dub effects added here and there to add a new dimension to the jazzed up reggae numbers. The group is pretty large, sort of a Jamaican all stars, with names like Sly & Robbie, Skully, and Dirty Harry, running through 9 dubs of tracks from the original album, including "Gunga Din Dub", "Lumumba Dub", "Over The Mountain Dub", "Dial Africa Dub", "Man From Wareika Dub", "Rasta Dub" and "This Day Dub".

✨✧ Jon HendricksRecorded In Person At The Trident ... LP
Smash, Mid 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great live set recorded by Jon Hendricks during a time when he was making his home in the artsy community of Sausalito, on the San Francisco Bay. The set's recorded at the town's tiny Trident club, where Jon played for a while on a very regular basis, and the feeling is very relaxed and comfortable. The band includes players who would go on to make more of a name for themselves in the 70's – like Noel Jewkes and Flip Nunez – but the real focus is on Jon's rich, raspy, always-swingin' vocals. There's a lot of nice uptempo tracks that demonstrate his agile vocalese skills, including readings of "Yeh Yeh", "Watermelon Man", "Gimme That Wine", "Stockholm Sweetnin", and "Jon's Mumbles".
