✨✧ Chuck StrangersConsumers Park ... LP
Nature Sounds, 2018. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $22.99
Neo-classic hip hop of the highest caliber, courtesy Pro Era collective MC and producer Chuck Strangers in his solo debut! As much as we always have and always will love dusty soul and jazz sample hip hop, it takes real finesse these days to work in that realm without sounding self-consciously rearward gazing, and CS pulls it off masterfully as a dual threat on the beats and rhymes. Titles include "Thoro Hall" with Kirk Night, "Style Wars" with Joey Bada$$, "1010 Wins" (Pts 1 & 2)", "The Evening", "Syl's Song", "Class Pictures", "Peaceful" with Issa Gold, "Two Pit Bulls", "Fresh" with guest production by Alchemist and more.

ExcitersCaviar & Chitlins ... LP
RCA/Nature Sounds, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99 20.98
An amazing record by one of our favorite female soul groups! The Exciters were always great on their bigger girl group recordings of the mid 60s, but on this set, they really hit a cool sound – New York uptown production in the back, contrasted with the girls' raw soul vocals up in front – a spectacular approach all-around, one that pushes the album past cliches of other girl soul records from the time! Arrangements are by George Patterson and Teacho Wiltshire – and the record includes the massive uptempo groover "Blowing Up My Mind", plus "Turn Me On", "Give It All", "Always", "Missing", "You Got Me", and "Movin Too Slow".

Weldon IrvineSpirit Man ... LP
RCA/Nature Sounds, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 21.98
Massively funky work from the mighty Weldon Irvine – sublimely cosmic and filled with soul throughout! The vibe here is a bit more focused than on some of Weldon's earlier albums – a moody blend of electric keys, heavy percussion, and some slight bits of jazzy solo work by trumpeters Charles Sullivan and Everett Blood Hollins, and saxophonist Sonny Fortune – both players who really help the album find some soulful structure! The album's all-instrumental, and has Weldon really taking off on the keyboards – not just using them for main solos, but also dropping in cool noisy bits and analogue effects that really sound great – almost out-Herbieing Herbie Hancock for the record, and turning in some of his biggest classics on wax! Titles include the massive sample cut "We Gettin' Down", plus "Jungle Juice", "Blast Off", "Softly", "Power & The Glory", "Yasmin", and "Pogo Stick". LP, Vinyl record album
(Nice new reissue from Nature Sounds – with updated artwork, created using rare photos from the original album cover shoot!)

Bernard Purdie (Pretty Purdie)Soul Drums (50th anniversary 2LP version – with bonus tracks) ... LP
Date/Nature Sounds, 1967. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $33.99 34.98
Massive work from one of the funkiest drummers of all time – the legendary Bernard Pretty Purdie, stepping out here in a batch of instrumentals that may well be his greatest album ever! Bernard's drums are right up front in the mix – leading off all tunes with a full, funky, echoey sort of approach that's unlike anything else we can think of – and certainly different from any other late 60s albums of this type! The production is totally great – and has a way of pulling out some of the weirdest aspects of the music – which itself features guitar from Billy Butler and Eric Gale, bass from Bob Bushnell, tenor and flute from Seldon Powell, and organ and piano from Richard Tee – who also handled all the arrangements on the set! The centerpiece is the hit single "Funky Donkey", but just about every track's a groover in its own way – and titles include "Soul Drums", "Bill's Groove", "Jimmy's Back", "Testifyin", "Modern Jive", "Blow Your Lid", "Bee N Tee", and "Soul Bossa Nova". This new edition includes 8 bonus tracks, with a couple rare 45 tracks and more that have never been released – all soulful & funky – well paired with the Soul Drums album! Bonus tracks are in stereo, and include "Alexander's Rag Time Band", "Genuine John", "Soul Clappin", "If You Never Cried", "Stop" and "Time Is Tight". Also comes with a nice booklet with new liner notes, and choice quotes from Purdie's peers and those he influenced, from Galt MacDermot to Large Professor. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Westside Gunn & Mr GreenFLYGOD Is Good – All The Time EP (with instrumentals) ... LP
Nature Sounds, 2018. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of kind rhymer Westside Gunn, with a flow as unique as his tone, produced in gritty full by Mr Green! The rawness and the hazy vibe of Mr Green's work here is a fine foil for WG's off the cuff sounding style, the vocals echoing back for emphasis on the vocal side and Green's brilliant instumentals in full effect on the other. Includes the Kool Herc intro, ahead of "Part Deux", "Stash House", "Trash Bag", "Eight Seconds" and "Brazy", plus instrumentals. LP, Vinyl record album

Relativity/Nature Sounds, 1992. New Copy 2LP & 7 Inch (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Common's full length debut! This one's a little more uptempo and overall less serious than "Resurrection", and a few cuts that are as good as anything on that LP – Common went on to a pretty diverse career, and this is the blueprint material for his most respected records. Production by Twilight Tone, Immenslope, and the Beatnuts. Includes "Penny For My Thoughts", "Soul by the Pound", "Take It Eazy", "Breaker 1/9", "Two Scoops of Raisins", "Tricks Up My Sleeve", Blows To The Temple" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Weldon IrvineSisters ... LP
Nature Sounds, 1979. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A rare gem – featuring previously unissued material from Weldon Irvine's incredible late 70s creative peak! The tracks are a mixture of straight mellow jazz and funk, with a similar feel to some of the Arista/GRP titles from the time by artists like Don Blackman, Tom Brown, and Bobby Broom – all of whom play with Irvine on the album. A few tracks feature vocals by Don Blackman, but most of the cuts are instrumentals – done with that sweet and righteous sound that Weldon always brought to his work. Titles include "Egypt", "Sexy Eyes", "It's Funky", "Blue In Green", "Morning Sunrise", and "The Sisters". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Maria Teresa LucianiSounds Of The City (Suoni Di Una Citta) ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An amazing sonic portrait of the modern city – one created on the early 70s Italian scene, but lost to the shifting sands of time, due to its release as a sound library-only album! We've heard Maria Teresa Luciani on a few other records of this nature – but this one may well be her greatest – music that's beyond categorization in the way it presents its subject – not really jazz or soundtrack styles at all, but also not some sort of too-modern compositional idiom either. Instead, the whole thing seems to make some sort of honest, organic sense – as it presents differing aspects of the city, both residential and commercial, public and private – often with a sense of darkness in the immediate approach, but also with a current of hope at times too. Titles include "Public Gardens", "Modern Residential Complex", "Supermarket", "Poor Neighborhoods", "Power Station", "Traffic", and "International Airport". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sam SpenceSam Spence Sounds ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Amazing sounds from the groovy Sam Spence – an American composer who worked heavily in Germany during the 60s and 70s, turning out some really cosmic sounds in the process! The cuts here are a wonderful mix of funky sound library grooves and more electronic numbers – a beautiful blend that makes the record come off with a lot more charm than other compilations of this nature – a balance between striking and sensitive moments that's really great! Some of the moogier cuts get very wild – offbeat, spacey, and pretty darn hip – and the straighter grooves offset these nicely by swinging back to more familiar Finders Keepers territory! Titles include "Psycho 2", "Sylvia", "Ice Glaze", "Flying Low", "Electric Texas", "The Searcher", "Frog Spawn", "Water World", "Swamp", "Sunken Ship", "Cosmetic 2", "World As One", "MS 11", "Ringo", and "Industrial Science".

Basil KirchinWorlds Within Worlds ... LP
Island/Superior Viaduct, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $20.99 25.98
Mindblowing music from the legendary Basil Kirchin – a British composer who started out doing more conventional soundtrack material in the decade before – but who here is making music from a range of sonic sources that include both regular instruments and extrapolated sounds from nature! In other words, Basil brings together woodwind instruments, cello, organ, arco bass, Alp horn, and flugelhorn – alongside elements from the sounds of gorillas, hornbills, and flamingos – all of them deconstructed, abstracted, then built up anew with a quality that's quite far from their origin! The music may well be some of the darkest and moodiest that Kirchin ever recorded – and some of the densest and most textural too. Each side features one full song – the titles "Emergence" and "Evolution". LP, Vinyl record album

Annea LockwoodGlass World ... LP
Etats-Unis/Superior Viaduct, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 25.00
The title's no lie, as the music here comes from a variety of different glass-based items – either panes of the material, bottles, shapes, or other forms – all used in a variety of wonderful ways! The set is maybe one of the most organic we've heard from composer Annea Lockwood – as there's almost an improvisational nature as the different items are explored – with a range of sounds that's as surprising as the devices, and moments that almost feel more electronic in nature overall! Titles include "Vibrating Pane", "Micro Glass On Goblet", "Rod Roll", "Bottles & Jars", "Glass Rod Vibrating", "Turning Gong", "Water Gong", "Spinning Discs", and "Bottle Tree Showered With Fragments".

Lee Perry & OthersMr Perry I Presume ... LP
Pressure Sounds (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $23.99 24.98
A wealth of unreleased tracks and unreleased mixes from the studios of the mighty Lee Scratch Perry – material that was mostly recorded during a very fruitful time in the mid 70s, when Lee was turning out a fair bit of tracks that were only issued on one-off dub plates, to be spun by only the hippest sound systems in Kingston and London! Material of this nature is often nicely offbeat – no easy hooks or more commercial elements, and instead the kind of creative approach to overall sound that makes every aspect of a tune worth opening up into play – from the vocals to the rhythms, to the production. Titles include "Ethiopia Land" by Peter & Paul, "Lay Beside You" by Joy White, "Jah I" by Lee Perry & The Upsetters, "Word (acapella)" by The Gatherers, "War & Peace" by The Upsetters, "Keep On Moving" by Augustus Pablo & The Upsetters, "Keep On Trying" by Susan & Bunny", and "Living My Life" by Keith Rowe & The Upsetters.

Sun RaMy Brother The Wind Vol 1 (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Saturn/Cosmic Myth, 1970. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $30.99 31.99
A stone classic – and one of the wilder, more electronic albums from Sun Ra – a set that has him playing on "two moog synthesizers" – which both sound as if they're going at the same time! The rest of the group is quite small – with only John Gilmore, Marshall Allen, and Danny Davis – so Ra really center stage on the keys, and spends most of the record making some really weird and wonderful sounds on the moog – showing the world that, although the instrument was already gaining popularity in the hands of others, nobody could handle the futuristic sound machine like the spaceman himself! The mix of moog with avant jazz solos is completely sublime – and titles include "Intergalactic II", "To Nature's God", "The Code Of Interdependence", "The Perfect Man (complete tracking session)", and the 17 minute "Space Probe"!

VariousFeeling Nice Vol 4 – A Collection Of Super Rare & Super Heavy Funk 45s From The Late 60s & Early 70s (with bonus 7 inch) ... LP
Tramp (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $22.99
Great sounds from a series that's always got us Feeling Nice – thanks to its never-ending array of rare funk and soul tracks from the glory days of the scene! The work here goes way past the obvious – and given that Tramp's been giving us some of the best funky 45 reissues for over a decade, the label's very well-poised to dig up the kind of rare nuggets that often put most other compilations of this nature to shame – cuts that have yet to be discovered, collected, and sampled by most of the rest of us! The groove is unstoppable throughout, and the cuts are the best sort of rare funky 45s – tight, short, and packing a hell of a punch – that sound that only came from deep deep deep in the American underground at the end of the 60s. Titles include "Basement Jam" by TNT Powerhouse, "Walkin The Duck" by Jim Pipkin & Boss Five, "Wake Me Up" by George Johnson, "Big Bear" by Big Bear Revue, "The Swimming Monkey" by Harold Andrews & The Sha-Bangs, "It Ain't What You Do" by Little Caesar & The Euterpeans, "Karate" by Mr Clean & The Cleansers, "Strut Your Stuff" by Donald Ray & Revue, "Shing-A-Ling Baby" by Donnie Sanders & Don Juans, "What About Mars" by Moony Moon, "Silver Black Summer Day" by Living Funk, and "No That Ain't Groovy" by Al Sinclair.

✨✧ Actress X London Contemporary OrchestraLageos ... LP
Ninja Tune, 2018. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pretty moody little collaboration between electronic wizard Actress (Darren Cunningham), and the London Contemporary Orchestra – both working here in a way that's quite unlike other records of this nature we've heard in the past! At first, we were maybe guessing that the set would have a Cinematic Orchestra vibe – but the Actress presence really shapes every sound from the start, even the rich acoustic elements of the larger lineup – often creating these unnerving sounds and shapes that make it feel as if Cunningham is battling the whole ensemble by himself! Other times, things are more subtle – with a resonance between electric and acoustic that's completely haunting – and titles include "Hubble", "Surfer's Hymn", "Chaos Rain", "Chasing Numbers", "Galya Beat", "Momentum", "Voodoo Posse Chronic Illusion", and "Audio Track 5".

✨✧ Sister Irene O'ConnorFire Of God's Love ... LP
Wyrd War, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the strangest records you'll ever hope to own – a completely unusual vocal outing by two nuns from Australia – who are singing alongside spare accompaniment on organ, guitar, and piano! The whole thing's world's apart from the successful "nun" genre of the 60s – ala The Singing Nun – as this album feels weirdly spacey and kind of trippy – almost more in the vein of work by Miss Nelson and Bruce Haack than any sort of spiritual sounds! Some tunes are very spare and eerie – and almost feel like they were lifted from the soundtrack to an early David Lynch film – and titles include "Light", "Message Du Saint Esprit", "Nature Is A Song", "Fire", "Mary Was There", and "Teenager's Chorus".

Take a trip through hell with the CA Quintet – an obscure late 60s combo from the Twin Cities – and one who've got more than enough psychedelic power to live up to the Cali promise of their name! The album's got a pretty amazing cover – nude models dancing in a satanic landscape – and the sounds within are even more incredible – way more eerie and offbeat than other records of this nature, with a true undercurrent of evil that really comes through in both the darkness of the instrumentation, and the creepy way the vocals are put across. Titles include "Trip Thru Hell" – in two parts – plus "Sleepy Hollow Lane", "Smooth As Silk", "Cold Spider", and "Colorado Mourning". LP, Vinyl record album

Esso! Afrojam Funkbeat, 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sweet work from a great Chicago combo – one who go way past the usual grooves you might expect from an ensemble of this nature! Sure, these guys have "Afro" in their name, but they don't just play Fela-styled sounds – and instead step into a warm, wide range of sounds – all of which they do incredibly well! There's a touch of Brazilian elements on the guitars at points, and some deeper contemporary soul on the great vocals from Vivian Garcia – a singer who really adds a lot to the music when she steps into the spotlight – and the group even play around with some more Caribbean influences from time to time, keeping things freshly diverse, but never in a way that sounds unplanned or out of control. Titles include "La Lluvia", "Locas", "Uno Somos Todos", "Sabrosa", "Esso Strut", and "Iwbwu". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Max RichterBlue Notebook – 15 Years (2018 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Deutsche Grammophon/Universal (Italy), 2003. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the most beautiful records we've ever heard from Max Richter – this wonderful blend of light strings, piano, and electronics – plus a few striking spoken bits by actress Tilda Swinton! There's a fragile quality to the piano that's offset by the subdued majesty of the violin, viola, and cello – used at a level that's spacious, but never that kind of offhand atmospheric that can be so tedious in other projects like this. Instead, Richter really shows his mastery of subtle colors and sounds – those he'd bring to his later reworking of The Four Seasons – used here in beautifully-stripped-down ways. Titles include "Old Song", "Organum", "The Trees", "On The Nature Of Daylight", "Shadow Journal", and "Iconography". New version also features a long orchestral reading of "On The Nature Of Daylight" – done with the Max Richter Orchestra. Special 15th Anniversary version also features bonus cuts – "Vladimir's Blues (2018)", "Vladimir's Blues (Jlin rmx)", and "Iconography (Konx Om Pax rmx)". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Black Market BrassCheat & Start A Fight (with download) ... LP
Secret Stash, 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Don't let the "brass" in the title throw you off – as these guys are more of an Afro Funk ensemble than any sort of New Orleans-styled group – a combo that's actually only got a single trumpet and trombone in the mix, alongside loads of riffing guitar and heavy percussion! The sound is very much in the best Africa 70 lineage – with all elements coming down right on the groove, in an all-instrumental approach that really lets all the players do the talking with their sounds – including a tremendous tenor saxophonist, whose raspy lines may well be worth the price of the album alone! All tracks are originals – and the all-instrumental approach really gives these guys a freshness, compared to some of the more vocally-based groups of this nature – a sound that's more searing overall, and which brings plenty to bear in the process. Titles include "The Powers", "Gloom", "Pocket Baby", "Moon King", "Midnight Pyre", "Mob Rules", and "Half A Cig". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ ZanovMoebius 256 301 (with bonus 7 inch) ... LP
Polydor/Wah Wah (Spain), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Zanov takes his title seriously here – as each of the electronic instrumentals on the album have this cyclical, almost infinite nature – as if you're traveling along a moebius strip! The record's an overlooked gem from the French electronic scene of the 70s – one that was often never fully given its due back in the day, or passed over in favor of German acts – but which created some really wonderful sounds that pushed the boundaries of more familiar keyboards at the time! These tracks all have a pulsing quality, but are quite far from any club or disco electronics of the time – as Zanov's definitely in prog territory throughout, and keeps things moody and dark enough to avoid any of the mellower styles of the more ambient scene. Titles include the side long "An Zero", plus "Moebius 256", "Moebius 301", "Enygma", and "Plentitude". Also features a bonus 7" single – with the tracks "Zephyr" and "Moebius 256 (full version)".

✨✧ Arnold Dreyblatt & The Orchestra Of Excited StringPropellers In Love ... LP
Hat Hut/Superior Viaduct, 1986. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Beautiful sounds from Arnold Dreyblatt and his "excited strings" – an acoustic bass body that's refitted with a different string lineup, and mixed here with other instruments of a string-heavy nature! Yet the music is hardly the usual "with strings" sounds, nor any sort of American acoustic tradition – and instead follows in a direction inspired by the minimalists of the 70s – Glass, Reich, Riley, and others – as Dreyblatt works here with a quintet to create these beautifully flowing passages of notes and tones – almost like some of the larger compositions by Reich and Riley, but with a much more spontaneous combo vibe. Other instrumentation includes drums, wood block, modified piano, and violin – and titles include "Pedal Tone Dance", "Lucky Strike", "Odd & Even", "Harmonics", "Bowing", and "Propellers In Love". LP, Vinyl record album
