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 ... $14.99
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 ... $1.99
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

✨✧ Willie BoboBobo! Do That Thing/Guajira ... LP
Tico, 1963. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
An excellent set from Willie – recorded in the years before he moved to Verve, with a very different sound! The Willie Bobo here is less of the pop instrumentalist on some of his later sides – and is more of a hard-hitting Latin leader with a heck of a lot of soul. There's an early boogaloo approach to a number of the cuts, one that really makes them kick hard with some very catchy rhythms – and other numbers have a stripped down, rhythm-heavy small combo approach that's equally great, and which really helps expand the sound. Willie's vocals are kept to a minimum, and there's some really great instrumental touches on the best cuts – including some nice electric piano! Titles include "Bobo Do That Thing", "A La Bobita", "Azulito", "Chickadee", "Rigor Mortis", "Ritmo Tymbale", and "Grab Your Hat". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Stanley ClarkeI Wanna Play For You ... LP
Columbia, 1979. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $6.99
A wickedly funky album from Stanley Clarke – perhaps his most fully-formed album of the Columbia years, and a set that really brings together his jazz and soul styles! There's a definite R&B vibe going on, but it's also one that's still quite heavy on bass work from Stanley – a groove that's not far from Bootsy Collins at times, but perhaps with a bit more jazz inflections. Jamming is kept to a minimum, which is fine by us – and the album's filled with really tuneful tunes that have an almost George Duke-like appeal. Guests include Tom Scott and Stan Getz on saxes, George Duke on piano, Harvey Mason and Steve Gadd on drums, and Dee Dee Bridgewater on vocals. Titles include "I Wanna Play For You", "Just A Feeling", "Strange Weather", "My Greatest Hits", "School Days", and "Blues For Mingus". LP, Vinyl record album

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

Jon HendricksRecorded In Person At The Trident ... LP
Smash, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $12.99
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".

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!

John LennonPlastic Ono Band ... LP
Apple, 1970. Near Mint- ... $14.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

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

Joe PassComplete Catch Me! Sessions ... LP
Blue Note/Pacific Jazz, 1963. Very Good- ... $7.99
Nice, mellow, and very groovy! Joe Pass plays here with the piano and organ of Clare Fischer, who's always one of our favorites – a player who manages to turn any session into something more than it appears at face value – thanks to a strong sense of craft and cleverness! Clare's touch here is a bit gentler than on some of his later sides – but it's a very welcome one nonetheless – and provides a perfect setting for Joe's lean lines on guitar – strung out with a near-perfect tone, and backed by either Albert Stinson or Ralph Pena on bass, and Colin Bailey or Larry Bunker on drums. Titles include "Catch Me", "Walkin Up", "No Cover No Minimum", "Summertime", and "Just Friends". This 1980 issue of the material adds an alternate take of "Catch Me", and the previously unissued "Days Of Wine & Roses" – plus some great notes! LP, Vinyl record album

Lee Perry & FriendsChapter 3: Live As One ... CD
Trojan, 1970s. Used ... $9.99
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".

✨✧ Oscar Peterson with Clark TerryOscar Peterson Trio + One ... CD
Mercury/Verve, 1964. Used ... $2.99
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

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

SeedsRaw & Alive – The Seeds In Concert – Merlin's Music Box ... LP
GNP, 1968. Very Good ... $14.99
One of the great fake live albums of the 60s – a set that promises to be a concert performance from the title and cover, but which actually just features The Seeds playing live together in the studio! Yet that little trick is hardly a problem – because the album's the last-ever from this seminal group, and captures them in a format that really lets them take off! Their studio sessions were always great, but this one's got a special edge from letting all the instruments work together in the same space at once, with no edits or dubs. The core combo sounds wonderful – searing guitar, trippy keyboard lines, and all the sneering vocals the young Sky Saxon can muster – served up over tracks that include "Mr. Farmer", "No Escape", "Satisfy You", "Night Time Girl", "Up In Her Room", "Gypsy Plays His Drums", "Mumble And Bumble", "Forest Outside Your Door", "900 Million People Daily All Making Love", and "Pushin' Too Hard".
