✨✧ David BowieDavid Bowie (2CD deluxe edition) ... CD
Deram/Universal, 1967. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Genius, pure genius from a young David Bowie – an album that we've always treasured as much as Ziggy Stardust! This set's pre-Hunky Dory, pre-Space Oddity – and it's an amazing little record that's almost completely devoid of guitars – instead using weird woodwinds (lots of oboe!), soaring strings, and offbeat orchestrations to carry off the tunes – all of which are as weird, mad, and wonderful as anything Bowie wrote in later years! The subject matter of the songs is almost a dark reflection of the picture postcard England that you'd find in work by The Kinks – the local pederast, weird guy who lives with his mum, old military geezer who can't get out of the past, cross-dressing soldiers, a gravedigger about to meet his death, and hip Londoners gallivanting all over town – all delivered with a sharpness that's stunning. We honestly think the record is flawless – incredibly complicated instrumentally, but incredibly groovy too – with all the edge you'll always love in Bowie, but in a fresh young flavor too. Years back, as young Bowie-heads, we always passed this one by – assuming it was unformed early roughness – but it's not, and is an incredible album that would have been more than enough for any other artist to build a career on. Includes "Uncle Arthur", "Sell Me A Coat", "Rubber Band", "Love You Till Tuesday", "There Is A Happy Land", "When I Live My Dream", and more. This loaded 2CD deluxe edition includes both the stereo and mono album mixes in full, plus a slew or singles, unreleased stereo mixes and unreleased tracks like the bootleg classic "London Bye Ta-Ta" and 5 tracks recorded for a '67 John Peel show.

✨✧ VariousPunk 45 Vol 2 – There Is No Such Thing As Society – Underground Punk & Post Punk In The UK 1977 to 1981 ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... 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.

Mose AllisonMose Allison Takes To The Hills ... LP
Epic, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $24.99
Incredible stuff – and Mose Allison at his finest! The record's got a rough and hard-grooving quality that surpasses even Allison's other albums for Prestige and Columbia from the time – an almost bluesy approach that comes out in the style of the recording – which features more rougher edges and room noise, and also a fair bit of Mose's own mumbling and humming along with his piano! Of course, it's Mose's actual vocals that really make the set work – but there's also a nice equal focus on his piano work too, plus some great support backing that includes Addison Farmer and Henry Grimes on bass, and Paul Motian and Osie Johnson on drums. Titles include "Baby Please Don't Go", "Back On The Corner", "Life Is Suicide", "Mad With You", "I Ain't God Nobody", and "I Love The Life I Live". LP, Vinyl record album

Apagya ShowbandTamfo Nyi Ekyir/Mumude ... 7-inch
Mr Bongo (UK), 1973. New Copy ... $11.99
Two slices of 70s Afro Funk from Apagya Showband – both of them great! A rolling groove kicks off "Tamfo Nyi Ekyir" – fast percussion wrapped up with Hammond, to set a great scene for the sinewy lead vocals – which then give way to a killer guitar and sax solos in the middle! The flipside's equally nice, too – the upbeat "Mumude", which has more great vocals, then this sweet organ solo with a very eerie vibe! 7-inch, Vinyl record

A mellow but striking blend of world and jazz styles – featuring Walcott on a variety of Indian instruments, Cherry on trumpet, flute, Doussn'Gouni, and voice, and Vasconcelos on berimbau, cuica, and percussion. Titles include "Codona", "Mumakata", "New Light", and "Colemanwonder", a blending of Stevie Wonder and Ornette Coleman tunes! LP, Vinyl record album

CybotronCybotron ... CD
Dual Planet/Clear Light Of Jupiter (Australia), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
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

EnvironmentsEnvironments–Disc 1 ... LP
Atlantic, 1970. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $2.99
We have to admit we find these records to be a lot of fun, but no one could possibly buy the spiel in the liner notes about their "effect on the imagination and subconscious of the listener". Two extended soundscapes here: side one is "The Psychologically Ultimate Seashore", side two is the "Optimum Aviary". As the notes say, play at any speed, for different psychological effects.

Bill EvansNew Jazz Conceptions ... LP
Riverside, 1956. Near Mint- ... $24.99
Bill Evans' first album as a leader – and a well-titled set that went onto transform the sound of the piano in jazz! The session isn't as lyrically free as some of Evans' later classics, but already has an undeniably fresh approach to the keys – one that's modern, yet never academic – fluid, but never flowery – pure genius of economy and understatement, while also at the same time opening bold new worlds in sound. The trio features drummer Paul Motian and bassist Teddy Kotick, and titles include the classics "Five" and "Waltz For Debby", the latter of which is performed solo by Evans – plus tracks that include "Displacement", "I Love You", "My Romance", "No Cover, No Minimum", and "Our Delight".

JamThis Is The Modern World (with download) ... LP
Polydor/Republic, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 24.99
The second album from The Jam, and it's pure aural dynamite after all this years – a great batch of sharp post punk cuts for Mods young and old! Whether it's anthems like the title track and "All Around The World", their rousing taking on Wilson Pickett's "In The Midnight Hour" or mellower numbers like "Tonight At Noon", the record's chock full of maximum British R&B at it's finest. Jaggedly melodic greatness from one the best bands of their era – really stepping beyond the rawer debut! Also includes "London Traffic", "Life From A Window", "Here Comes The Weekend" and "Don't Tell Them You're Sane". LP, Vinyl record album

Yusef Lateef10 Years Hence ... CD
Atlantic/Wounded Bird, 1975. New Copy ... $8.99 12.98
A spacious mid 70s set from Yusef Lateef – with some numbers showing his more soaringly spiritual bent – and others hewing towards a more bluesy or loosely funky vein. Tracked live in San Francisco, some numbers were later augmented with overdubbed strings and vocals – there's some nicely thumping elements of earthy percussion, loose moments, and quiet passages that sometimes build slowly, and at others change abruptly for maximum impact. The set features several longer selections, including the suite divided "Samba De Amor" in three sections, plus "Yusef's Mood" and "I Be Cold" – all approach or crossing the 20 minute mark – plus nice takes on "But Beautiful" and " A Flower". The group features Kenny Barron on piano and cowbell, Bob Cunningham on bass and bells, Albert Kuumba Heath on percussion and flute, and Bill Salter on bass – alongside Lateef whose working with tenor sax, flutes, oboe, thumb piano and percussion.

Duke LumumbaJungle Funk ... LP
Capitol, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
Do yourself a favor, and buy this album – you won't be disappointed! The record is a gem all the way through – a really unique mixture of LA soul jazz and African rhythms, with a sound that's almost like Hugh Masekela sitting in with the Jazz Crusaders! Of course, there's a lot of Jazz Crusaders in the set – as Wilton Felder plays electric bass on the album, giving it a fantastic loping groove – but there's also plenty of unique albums on the record, especially its way of approaching the rhythms with a sly, syncopated groove that's immediately infectious! Duke's trumpet solos are great, and they're augmented by tenor work by Chester Washington and trombone by George Bohannon – all nicely grooving on the album's brilliant blend of jazzy tracks. Titles include "Jungle Funk", "Afrikaloo", "Akagruge", "Like It Is", "Mafam", and "Peace Brother". Somebody put this one on CD – and do us all a treat! LP, Vinyl record album

Messer ChupsIncredible Crocotiger (plus Two Bottles Of Blood) ... CD
Omni (Australia), 2015. Used ... $9.99
The most irresistible surf rock, drag strip, garage-a-billy, trashy pulp rock instrumentals we've heard in years and years, but it's not some early 60s relic recorded by moonlighting, anonymous session players – it's actually the post-millenium output of a killer band from St. Petersburg, Russia! Messer Chups has a blast playing with retro/proto rock role play – complete with macabre or otherwise tongue-in-cheek stage names like Gitaracula, Zombierella and Alexander Login-Off – but the work transcends cliche. It's a total gas! The musicianship and recording quality are impeccable, without compromising in the wild and wooly grooves, but the tone and style is pure early 60s trash rock – in all it's seedy glory! Includes 12 tracks issued in Russia as The Incredible Crocotiger LP in 2015, plus an extra 12 tracks from the Two Bottles Of Blood compilation. Titles include "Ghost Party", "War Party", "Jokermobile", "Catch 22", "The Menace", "Insomnia Of The Mummies", "Shadow Of A Spy", "Vampira's Curse", "Human Jungle Revisited","Shadow Of A Spy", "Roach Racing", "House Of Exorcism", "Sadistic Satanic Super Criminal" and more.

✨✧ Charlie Munro QuartetEastern Horizons ... CD
Philips/Be! (Germany), 1967. New Copy ... $16.99
A totally cool little record – and one that more than lives up to the Eastern promise of its cover! The album's a real stunner from Australian reedman Charlie Munro – a beautiful mix of jazz and exotic elements, at a level that puts it up there with a rare few records that work this well – like the Indo-Jazz experiments of Joe Harriott, the earlier recordings of Ahmed Abdul Malik, and maybe the legendary Jazz Meets World series on MPS! Munro's range of influences is nicely varied here – with some elements of Indian music, others borrowed from Japan, and even some from points that are a bit more Mid-East – mostly delivered on familiar jazz instrumentation, but with very dramatic results. Charlie plays tenor, alto, soprano sax, and bass clarinet – plus a bit of flute and cello too – and the rest of the group includes Mark Bowden on drums and vibes, Neville Whitehead on bass, and Bob McIvor on trombone – an instrument that's often used in these dark, bassy tones with the rhythms. Titles include "Islamic Suite", "Arch's Groove", "Malahari Raga", "David", "Japanese Love Song", "Minimum", "When I Look At You", and "Raised Eyebrows". CD

NovalimaCoba Coba ... CD
Cumbancha, 2009. Used ... $2.99
Crispy grooves from Novalima – a set of work rooted in older Afro-Peruvian traditions, but spun out here with a wealth of global influences! The set's got a sound that's almost rootsier than the group's previous effort for Mr Bongo – one that's often somewhat spare, and based around some very earthy percussive elements – which are then mixed with bits of raspy bass, guitar, and a range of vocals – plus some light touches of electronics, which are kept to a minimum and used with just the right sort of balance. There's a nicely funky feel to some of the best cuts – and titles include "Africa Landu", "Coba Guarango", "Camote", "Mujer Ajena", "Tumbala", "Kumana", "Yo Voy", "Bolero", and "Se Me Van". CD

Oscar Peterson with Clark TerryOscar Peterson Trio + One ... CD
Mercury, 1964. Used ... $3.99
Oscar Peterson's trio is augmented here by a famous guest – trumpeter Clark Terry, whose horn adds a nice bit of punctuation to the set, and makes the record a strong standout in the 60s catalogs of both players! The addition of Terry to the record is a great one – as Clark's rising fame at the time merges nicely with the popularity of the Peterson group – and since both players share a talent for mixing earthy moments with tighter playing, the whole thing comes off pretty darn nicely! Peterson's piano is supported by rhythm work from Ray Brown on bass and Ed Thigpen on drums – and Terry not only plays trumpet and flugelhorn, but also vocalizes a slight bit too – sometimes at the same point he's playing his horn! Titles include "Mumbles", "Mack The Knife", "Jim", "Blues For Smedley", "Brotherhood Of Man", and "Incoherent Blues". CD

A beautiful set of Brazilian vocals – inflected with a bit of bossa inspiration, but coming off a lot more freely overall! Wanda Sa and Celia Vaz sing dual vocals on a haunting set of tracks that have a strangely spacey sound, thanks to the lilting loveliness of the ladies' voices. The overall effect is kind of like a prime late 70s/early 80s Joyce session – and it's no surprise that Joyce guests on the record, along with Gal Costa, Nana Caymmi, and Quarteto Em Cy. Titles include "Amazon River", "Aqua de Beber", "Lugar Comum", "Uma Bencao", and "Molambo". Very nice! CD

Ear Books (Germany), 2006. New Copy ... $14.99 50.00
A nice entry-level presentation of the sights and sounds of Bollywood – a book whose pictures focus maybe a bit more on the streets of Mumbai than the images of its films, but which also offers up a fair bit of music on its bonus 4CDs as well! The book's not one for Bollywood completists, but it does offer up a great way to sample the sonic side of Indian culture – alongside some nicely-shot full color photographs of scenes from film shoots, movie openings, and even movie posters on the streets of India. CDs each have a different theme – and are titled "Bollypop", "Bollyjazz", "Bollyrock", and "Bollydance" – and feature a range of Indian film music from the late 60s onward! Book
