Nick DrakeFamily Tree (previously unreleased) (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Sunbeam (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $31.99
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 29 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".

✨✧ Kilburn & The High-RoadsHandsome (2CD version – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Dawn/Cherry Red (UK), 1974/1975. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great CD package featuring the lost 1975 release from Kilburn & The High Road – Ian Dury's fantastic, and at the time, completely anomalous group of pub rock outcasts! The Kilburn sound is tough to describe even now – traces of Phil Spector's rock & soul, ragged 50s jazz, and drunken pub rock make up the sounds that back up Ian's wickedly dry sing-speak monologues – this clearly influenced people from Elvis Costello to Madness to who knows how many others. Ian went on to have more notoriety on the seminal Stiff Records, but this record originally released on Dawn sounds nearly as great to our ears. Oh, but to have a time machine and be able to go back and see this group in action – must've been amazing! This huge 2CD collection features the original album, rare singles and other obscure tracks – plus a full second CD that features 11 tracks with the group "In Session" at Capital Radio in 1974. Titles include "Rough Kids", "Crippled With Nerves", "Pam's Moods", "Broken Skin", "Upminster Kid", "The Badger", "Mumble Rumble & The Cocktail Rock", "The Call-Up", "Father", "Who's To Know", "Back To Blighty", "Twenty Tiny Fingers", and "Thank You Mum".

AceyaloneBook Of Human Language ... CD
Project Blowed, 1998. Used ... $3.99
Aceyalone's collaboration with Mumbles, much less upbeat than his later work and even the Freestyle Fellowship albums, with space in the beats, providing a darker, jazzier atmosphere. It's a nice departure from the stuff he was doing previously and even afterwards – the Mumbles production gives the whole project a nice cohesive effect somewhat lacking on his other efforts. Tracks include "The Balance", "The Grandfather Clock", "The Reason", The Thief In The Night", "Human Language," and much more. 20 tracks in all! CD

Jimmy Castor BunchMaximum Stimulation ... LP
Atlantic, 1977. Very Good+ ... $7.99
It's the late 70s, so you know things are beginning to wind down a bit for Jimmy Castor, but even though this doesn't pack the same funky punch as It's Just Begun, it's still a solid effort, if a bit polished for our taste. As the title implies, it's full-on funk from the get go, with the bass heavy sound that was predominant at the time, cuts like "E Man Par-tay", "Maximum Stimulation", and "Mind Power" shooting straight for the funk mode, the nice Latiny number "The Return Of Leroy (parts 1 & 2)" and the disco-y "TR7".

Emperors/Soul ExoticsKarate (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Philly Archives, 1967. New Copy ... $9.99
If this is Karate, sign us up for the next marital arts class! The album's a sock-hard batch of soul tracks from the 60s – rare Philly soul work by The Emperors, one of the heaviest soul groups on the city's scene! The group have a really great sound – with a rhythm section that bubbles over with energy, grooves slapping out with a blend of organ, guitar, bass, and drums – over which the group sing in a style that reminds us almost of a harmony version of Dyke & The Blazers. The CD features all of the vocal versions of their singles – 10 tracks that include the group's classic boogaloo number "Karate" – plus "My Baby Likes To Boogaloo", "I Can't Help Myself", "Looking For My Baby", "Mumble Shing A Ling", "Karate Boogaloo", "High Heel Sneakers", "I've Got To Have Her", and "Searching". Then, the CD explodes with even more great Philly soul from Soul Exotics – the cuts "Darlin", "Nobody Could Ever Love You", "Togtherness Brings Happiness", "Baby It's True", and "Here I Am Again". Also features "Sad Girl (parts 1 & 2)" by Emperors Soul 69! CD

JoyceBossa Duets ... CD
Sony (Japan), 2003. New Copy ... $14.99
Magical work from the lovely Joyce – a set of duets with some of her favorite players and singers – some of our favorites too! The album has Joyce working in a stripped-down and intimate style – vocals and acoustic guitar tripping out over gentle bossa rhythms, joined on various tracks by artists that include Joao Donato, Toninho Horta, Johnny Alf, Wanda Sa, and daughter Ana Martins. Given the presence of the older bossa luminaries, the album's got a sophisticated and mature sound that's quite nice, and in contrast to some of Joyce's other recent recordings – a bit mellower, perhaps, but also more deeply thoughtful, and at many levels, sadder and wiser. Titles include "Lugar Comum", "Voce E Eu", "Yarabela", "Plexus", "London Samba", "O Sapo", "E Vamos La", and "Fa Da Bahia". And just in case you were wondering, all tracks are exclusive to this album – recorded in 2003! CD

Steve KhanEyewitness/Modern Times/Casa Loco ... CD
Antilles/BGO (UK), 1981/1982/1983. New Copy 2 CDs ... $16.99
A trio of early 80s albums from fusion giant Steve Khan – all lined up in a single collection! First up is Eyewitness – an early 80s effort from guitarist Steve Khan – a set recorded after some big records for Columbia, and one that follows very strongly in their legacy! Khan's super-deft here, but also able to create these washes of sound as much as some bold lines on his instrument – moving between the modes freely in the company of a tight quartet – with Anthony Jackson on bass, Steve Jordan on drums, and Manolo Badrena on percussion – all much more in the loose, open style of fusion from the mid 70s than you might guess from the date of the record. Titles include "Where's Mumphrey", "Dr Slump", "Guy Lafleur", and "Auxilary Police". Modern Times has Steve Khan stretching out even more htan before – working on a set of three long tracks that really expand his ideas strongly – almost pushing his guitar sense of tone and color into some of the territory Pat Metheny was exploring at the time! The group is Khan's great quartet with Anthony Jackson on bass, Steve Jordan on drums, and Manolo Badrena on percussoin – and titles include "Blades", "The Blue Shadow", "Modern Times", and "Penguin Village". Casa Loco is a record that's maybe a bit more electric on the rhythms than some of Steve Khan's previous sets – thanks to use of Simmons drums by drummer Steve Jordan – but a record that's still got Steve himself playing very strongly in the lead! Khan's as deft as ever here, working out these swirling chords that brew together in waves of sound – that special place a few fusion artists found themselves after the rock-jamming years of the 70s. The album features a bit of vocals from percussionist Manolo Badrena – which come across surprisingly well – and titles include "The Suitcase", "Uncle Roy", "Some Sharks", "Breakaway", and "Casa Loco".

✨✧ KinksEverybody's In Showbiz (2CD Legacy Edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/Sony, 1972. New Copy 2 CDs ... $15.99
An overlooked gem from The Kinks – a set that's got all the wit of their late 60s material, a bit of the rootsy currents of Muswell Hillbillies, and a lot more bite than the group would have in some of their next few albums to come! Ray Davies' pen is razor-sharp, as is his vocal approach – and the songs are maybe even more gritty than the group would have done a few years before – furthered by some of the instrumental currents that also bring in a few acoustic elements and some Americanized riffs, which are then also matched by an occasional twang in Ray's vocal presentation. Plus, the double-length set also features one album of studio material, and a second live album – almost as a "bonus" thrown in for good measure. Studio tracks include the hit "Celluloid Heroes", plus "Here Comes Yet Another Day", "Maximum Constipation", "Unreal Reality", "Hot Potatoes", "Motorway", and "Supersonic Rocket Ship" – and live cuts include "Skin & Bone", "Alcohol", "Banana Boat Song", "Lola", "Holiday", and "Mr Wonderful". 2CD version features 17 bonus tracks – almost all previously unissued – some alternate takes, plus a lot more live tracks!

Henry Junjo LawesJuno Presents – Evil Curse Of The Vampires (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Greensleeves, 1981. New Copy 2LP ... $24.99
Scientist spins out on a dub-driven power boat – scanning the swamps to drive out the vampires and a host of other ghouls too – all while reinventing Jamaican music in the process! The record's filled with lots of cool electric elements – those weird production effects and electronic doodles that make the music of Scientist so revolutionary – especially when spun out over a still-familiar backdrop supplied by Roots Radics, with a core essence that's very much from the pre-digital world of Jamaican music. Rhythm tracks were done at Channel One, and Scientist mixed the set at King Tubbys – a host of dub mini-masterpieces that include "The Voodoo Curse", "Dance Of The Vampires", "Blood On His Lips", "Cry Of The Werewolf", "the Mummy's Shroud", "The Corpse Rises", "Night Of The Living Dead", "Your Teeth In My Neck", "Plague Of Zombies", and "Ghost Of Frankenstein". 2LP version features a full bonus record of vocal versions – by Wailing Souls, Wayne Jarrett, Johnny Osbourne, and Michael Prophet!

Los TerrificosGo South – Vaya Pa'l Sur (2LP 45 rpm pressing) ... LP
Peace & Rhythm, 2016. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $22.99
Los Terrificos really live up to their name here – in a set of sounds that take Latin roots and push them into the trippy territory you might expect from the cover! The group's headed up by Ray Lugo, who we love from other creative contemporary Latin projects – and he's really outdone himself here, by drawing deep from a range of South American rhythms – complicated changes that are sometimes served up in more classic instrumental arrays, sometimes with more unusual keyboard lines that give the whole thing a strong 21st Century vibe! Ray sings on the record, but the vocals are really the lesser focus – as the core energy comes from interplay between guitar lines, keyboards, bass, percussion, and some other sweet electric touches. Titles include "La Mordida", "A Correr", "La Pantera", "Todos Pa'L Norte", "Muerte En La Galera", "Cachas De Oro", "El Camino Azul", and "Polvo Plomo Poder". So heavy, the whole thing had to be pressed as two 45rpm records for maximum sound! LP, Vinyl record album

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

Lee Perry & FriendsChapter 3: Live As One ... CD

Third volume in this series (following after Words Of My Mouth and Chapter 2: Of Words) reissuing classic Scratch tracks from the Trojan archives, which would mean these numbers are from the very prolific early 70s portion of his career. As you might expect, a nice selection of vocal and instrumental numbers, with several tracks that don't appear on other compilations. Includes Junior Byles "Lock & Key", "Live As One", "Mumbling & Grumbling", "The Long Way" & "Now Generation", Lee Perry "Golden Locks" & "Dub De Music", Paul Freeman "Don't Give Up", the Upsetters "Give Up (version)", "Sincerely (version)", "King Size Mumbles", "All The Way","Freedom (version)", "IPA Skank" and "Cripple Skank", Chenley Duffus "Sincerely", "Goodnight My Love" & "The End", Lee Perry & The Silvertones "Finger Mash", Bunnie & Ricky "Freedom Fighter", Joy White "Lady Lady" and King Burnett "Babylon A Fall".

Renee RosnesWritten In The Rocks ... CD
Smoke Sessions, 2016. New Copy ... $9.99 17.98
One of the most compelling albums we've heard from pianist Renee Rosnes in a long time – a set that features Rosnes working at the head of a very hip quintet with Steve Nelson on vibes and Steve Wilson on alto, flute, and soprano sax! Both of the Steves really open up the sound here – taking the music into deeper, more ambitious territory than usual for Renee – especially as the core of the album is built around the extended "Galapagos Suite", which features these patterns of shifting colors and shades that are especially great in the way they combine the piano and Nelson's vibes. The rest of the group features the mighty Peter Washington on bass and Bill Stewart on drums – and titles include "Goodbye Mumbai", "Lucy From Afar", "Written In The Rocks", "The KT Boundary", "So Simple A Beginning", and "From Here To A Star".

Wanda Sa & Celia VazBrasileiras ... CD
Bomba (Japan), 1993. New Copy ... $9.99
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

Mainstream, Early 70s. Very Good- ... $0.99
Forget any biases you might have against Clark Terry – this album is a super-hip killer! The arrangements were handled by Joe Cain, a mad mad mad Latin arranger who brings a strange sense of rhythm to the session, and a unique way of inserting instrumental flourishes. There's some nice organ and firey piano, Jerome Richardson plays excellent bits on flute and sax, and Vince Bell and Eric Gale both play guitars. Jose Mangual and Willie Bobo kick it in with percussion, and Terry plays in a tight jaunty style, with occasional mad vocal moments. Titles include "El Blues Latino", "The Cat From Cadiz", "Rum & Mumbles", and "Never". LP, Vinyl record album

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.

VariousMidnite Spares – Australian 80s/90s Avant Pop & Outsider Electronics (with bonus download) ... LP
Efficient Space (Australia), 1980s/Early 90s. New Copy ... $23.99
The Australian scene of the 80s may be best-remembered for some important guitar-based acts who broke big on a global level – but deeper underground, there was also a great electronic scene going on – with the kinds of sounds and styles that took off nicely from some of the best modes from the scene happening in the north of England at the start of the decade! This work is often a bit more abstract, although sometimes surprisingly tuneful – so much so that we'd hesitate to call it "cold wave" – as there's a more personal, charming feel to some of these tracks. Only a few numbers are from the start of the 90s – and all the others bear a date between 1982 and 1988 – titles that include "Trust Me" by Maria Kozic & The MK Sound, "Open Spaces" by Whadya Want", "Full Treatment" by The Couch, "Hakka Suru" by The Igniters, "Wind It Up" by Mumbo Jumbo, and "I Want My Mummy" by Foot & Mouth.
