✨✧ J DillaJay Stay Paid ... LP
Nature Sounds, 2009. New Copy 2LP ... $18.99
An excellent full length set of beats & genius from J Dilla – put together by fellow beatmaker extraordinaire Pete Rock, with all Dilla beats – a surprising triumph! Call us jaded, but honestly, we weren't sure how deep the well could go of ready-to-go beats from Dilla, but this stuff is truly top shelf – nearly as strong as the instant classic Donuts from a few years back! Pete Rock crafts the set as if it's a radio show or mixtape, but his skill in so doing is well above and beyond the norm – neither Pete's interjections nor the guest rappers ever get in the way of the flow, it's as smooth as can be. Vocal guests include Ma Dukes (the album was made under Ma's auspices), plus Lil Fame & MOP, Black Thought, Frank Nitty of Frank N Dank, Doom, Illa J & Cue D, Blu, and others. Titles include "King", "I Told Yall", "Smoke" feat Blu, "CaDILLAc". "Fire Wood Drumstix" feat Doom, "Big Day", "24K Rap" feat Havoc of Mobb Deep & Raekwon, "Coming Back", "Mythsysizer" and more. 27 tracks in all, about an hour of unreleased Dilla!

Correction with Mats GustafssonShift ... LP
No Business (Lithuania), 2013. New Copy ... $19.99
Nothing needs correction here – as the set's one of the most compelling settings we've heard for reedman Mats Gustafsson in a while – a record that really bubbles over with a wonderful sense of energy and musicality, and which shows a really fresh side of Gustafsson's talents! Mats plays baritone sax throughout – sometimes with a frenzy that drives bold sounds out of the instrument, as if it's an engine for generating fast tones – sometimes with a rich, soulful sense of tone that evokes an older jazz baritone scene, gone avant. But the Correction trio is very much part of the special nature of the record, too – a wonderful balance of piano from Sebstian Bergstrom, bass from Joacim Nyberg, and drums from Emil Astrand Melin – working in a way that's very different than some of the other trio modes you'd get on the sorts of power dates to usually feature a player like Mats. Titles include "Winters Within", "Personal Note 3", "Four Is A Sufficient Condition For Amendment", and "Correct This". LP, Vinyl record album

Cosmic Eye (Amancio D'Silva)Dream Sequence (180 gram pressing) ... LP
EMI/Roundtable (Australia), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99
The most mindblowing work we've ever heard from guitarist Amancio D'Silva – a really freewheeling blend of jazz and Indian music, and a set that goes far beyond most of his other albums! The album definitely lives up to the dream sequence promised by the title – as it features one long track that spins out in a beautiful blend of tablas, sitar, flute, percussion, violin, and Amancio's own great electric guitar! The leader crafts these trippy solos that are a bit like the work of Gabor Szabo, but even more open-ended and exotic – and the group also features some great work on sax from Alan Branscombe, plus violin from John Mayer – who'd worked on previous experiments of this nature with Joe Harriott. Despite the length of the track, the record is never over-indulgent or repetitive at all – as D'Silva constantly shifts the mood and the sounds – creating this wonderful interplay that really makes for a scenic richness throughout – an evocative journey in music that holds us completely rapt all the way through.

Jean-Pierre DecerfSpace Oddities 1975 to 1978 ... LP
Born Bad (France), Late 70s. New Copy ... $19.99
Spacey sounds from the enigmatic Jean Pierre Decerf – a lesser-known sound library artist from the 70s scene in France, but one who's finally getting his due! Decerf has a style that really lives up to the title of the collection – working with lots of keyboards and electronics in a mode that has plenty of space age touches – often more laidback and easygoing than some of the cosmic disco work of the period – such that these tunes are more mellow or midtempo, and percolate along in this really unique way! There's a bit of vocals at times – strong enough to have made Decerf able to compete with some of the more enigmatic French space rockers of the period – but the overall vibe is instrumental, yet played with a lot more focus than usual for non-commercial recordings of this nature. The package unearths a host of great tracks from Decerf's archives, and includes an interview too – and titles include "The Orion Belt", "Litha", "Rainbow Rays", "Black Safari", "The Cool Brain", "Blazing Skyline", and "Surrounding Seas" – all as great as you might guess from their names!

✨✧ Max RichterBlue Notebook (180 gram vinyl – with bonus track) ... LP
Deutsche Grammophon (Germany), 2003. New Copy ... $27.99 34.99
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 featuers a long orchestral reading of "On The Nature Of Daylight" – done with the Max Richter Orchetra. LP, Vinyl record album

Igor WakhevitchLes Fous D'Or (180 gram clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
Pathe/Fauni Gena (Spain), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
Really dark sounds from the enigmatic Igor Wakhevitch – even darker than his previous albums, and that's saying a lot, given the nature of those sets! This one was done in collaboration with American dancer Carolyn Carlson – but given the moody, offbeat quality of the sounds on the disc, we're damned if we can figure out how anyone could physically interact with the music! Some passages are very abstract and electronic – while others seem to use atonal acoustic instruments, but with a vibe that's still quite electric – and even the few female vocal passages come across with a sharp, striking quality – a bit like Cathy Berberian with Berio. Titles include "Eve Speaks", "Henry The Fool Of The Doll", "Ritual Of The Master Of The Doll", "Arrival Of The Magic Doll", and "Twilight & Call Of The Ascending Spirit". LP, Vinyl record album

Jason Ajemian/Tony Malaby/Rob Mazurek/Chad TaylorWay A Land A Life ... LP
No Business (Lithuania), 2014. New Copy ... $26.99
Jason Ajemian can always be counted on to offer up way more than just the usual set of avant and improvised music – and as with some of his other recent albums, this set shows a range of imagination that just seems to be growing bolder in the past few years! The music is very carefully conceived, but also has the freshness of spontaneous improvisation as well – with a shifting sense of scope and time that makes the record way more than just the usual set of this nature – and instead this rich palette of sounds and ideas that keeps things compelling throughout! Some moments are spare and thoughtful, others snapping with a bit of a swing, and still others have a more aggressive improvised feel – music played by a very well-matched quartet that includes Rob Mazurek on cornet and electronics (Ajemian plays some electronics too), Tony Malaby on tenor, and Chad Taylor on drums. Titles include "Yes We Know", "With A Mythador", "All Nights", "All Ups", and "Living The Sky". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousAfrica Airways 1 – Funk Connection 1973 to 1980 ... LP
Africa Seven (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... $24.99
A totally sweet set of grooves from the African scene of the 70s – and one that's a fair bit different than most of the other collections we've got on our racks! The styles here are a bit more offbeat, and a bit less familiar – not straight Afro Funk, but also not some of the popular genres of the time either – and instead often a compelling fusion of American funk, club, and disco with some very unusual local modes of expression – often with electric instrumentation that can come across in really great ways with weird production – making for unusual sounds on the keyboards and guitars. There's a bit more polish to the work than some of the rougher Afro groovers from the time – but never in a way that's ever too slick, just kind of a European mix of African roots and 70s funkier styles. Titles include "Give It Up" by Jo Bisso, "Jangolo" by Jo Tongo, "Kag Am" by Kemayo, "Africa Africa" by Ekambi Brilliant, "Black Gold" by Tala AM, "Father Time Mother Nature" by Jake Sollo, "Choco Date" by Jake Sollo, "Nande" by African Souls Band, and "Mbongui" by M'Bamina.

VariousCongo Guitars 1952 & 1957 ... LP
SWP (France), Mid 50s. New Copy ... $19.99
Amazing sounds from the Congo scene of the 50s – as singers here work with their own acoustic guitar for accompaniment, often with additional guitar as well – and usually a glass bottle providing a spare sort of rhythm! The style is quite different than later, more blues-based material of this nature – still very inflected with Congolese sense of melody and language – often at a level that has the voice really standing as the leading force of each tune! All tracks were recorded by Hugh Tracey with wonderful clarity – and the set features work by Anatole Kaseba, Charles Ombiza, Jean Bosco Mwenda, Patrice Ilunga & Victor Misomba, and Chiband & Kazeng.

VariousDelta Swamp Rock – Sounds From The South At The Crossroads Of Rock, Country, & Soul – Part 1 ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $26.99
Soul Jazz takes an open-eyed and open-minded look at swampy, funky, freewheeling southern rock – southern-by-nature or southern-by-inspiration grooves from the end of the 60s and well into the 70s! What we love most about the set, besides that it features one great song after another, is the Soul Jazz perspective. They don't simply put together Delta Swamp Rock from a purist's standpoint regionally, or as a sound – it's loosely-defined, which you could complain about if you want, but we love all of this stuff so it works for us! There's early phase southern rock, blue-eyed soul, soulful country and homey, swaggering pop. Volume 1 of the vinyl has 13 tracks on 2LPs: "The Seasons" by Lynryd Skynryd, "Smokies" by Barefoot Jerry", "Papa, Won't You Let Me Go To Town With You" by Bobbie Gentrie, "Stone Fox Chase" by Area Code 615, "Be What You Want To" by Link Wray", "I'll Be Long Gone" by Boz Scaggs, "God Rest His Soul" by Duane And Gregg Allman and more.

VariousDisco Reggae Vol 2 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Stix (France), 2014. New Copy ... $24.99
Fantastic sounds from this ultra-cool project – music that's neither straight disco, nor really reggae – and instead a great dubby reworking of dancefloor modes from a few generations past! The range of material here comes a number of different settings – but is all worked together carefully with a very cohesive feel – thanks to a selection of like-minded artists and producers who've made this Disco Reggae project one of the better experiments of this nature in recent years! Most tunes are familiar numbers, but remade in this fresh new vision – and titles include "Tainted Love (Grandmagneto orig 7")" by Grandmagneto, "Watermelon Man (Taggy Matcher disco reggae mix)" by Taggy Matcher, "Sabadi (7 Samurai electro disco reggae mix)" by Lucas Arruda, "Stand On The World (7 Samurai electro dub mix)" by Joubert Singers, "I'll Do Anything For You (Mato reggae mix)" by Lee McDonald, and "Queen Of The Minstrels (Taggy Matcher disco reggae mix)" by Mr Day.

VariousSchnitzelbeat Vol 1 – I Love You Baby – Twisted Rock & Roll, Exotica, & Proto-Beat Unknowns From Austria 1957 to 1965 ... LP
Digatone (Austria), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $21.99
Weird and wild sounds from the Austrian scene of the late 50s and early 60s – not the usual proto-rockers you might find on compilations of this nature – but some especially unusual music that's unlike anything else we've heard before! There's definitely some of the exotic and rockish touches promised in the title – but many cuts use them in very different ways – with the instruments coming in at points you might not expect, and echoey production abstracting all the elements – almost shaking them up so that they come out in a very fresh way! A few tunes are straight, but many are very much in the farther reaches of oddball and exotic – and titles include "Biggy's Little Car" by Johnny & The Shamrocks', "Olymp" by The Austrian Evergreens, "Jeannie Jeannie Jeannie" by Hannes Patek & The Vienna Beatles, "Gran Chaco" by The Tramps, "Geisterstunden Cha Cha" by Uzzi & Bill Grah's Olympia Band, "Nachts In Chicago" by The Hubbubs, and "Inka City 60" by Die 4 Bambis.

Sun RaAntique Blacks ... LP
Art Yard/Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... Early October, 2014 (delayed)
Amazing work from Sun Ra – record that really features a great range of sounds and styles, and a heck of a lot of soul as well! Ra plays some especially nice rocksichord on the set – that freaky, fuzzy keyboard that comes off sounding like a guitar, even though it's played with keys – and there's some spiritual undercurrents to the set that are different than some of Ra's other albums with the instrument – some deeply feeling rhythms and soulful, spiritual expressions that really belie the Space Is The Place generation in which the album was cut. A few recitations imbue the record with a bold sense of poetry, which seems to be carried through strongly in the instrumentation too – especially on John Gilmore's tenor lines, which almost have a Shepp-like quality at points. Other players include Marshal Allen and Danny Davis on alto, Ahk Tal Ebah on trumpet, Clifford Jarvis on drums, and Sly on electric guitar – and titles include "Song No 1", "There Is Change In The Air", "Antique Blacks", "Would I For All That Place", "Ridiculous I & The Cosmos Me", and "This Song Is Dedicated To Nature's God".

VariousRough Guide To African Rare Groove Vol 1 (with download) (2015 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Rough Guide, 1970s/1980s. New Copy ... Around April 18, 2015
Rare African tracks in a variety of styles – from heavy funk, to fuzzy psych, to other inventive grooves that create some whole new modes of their own! The tracks here move way past the usual familiar sound that "rare groove" might imply – quite far from American funk and soul, and instead really original grooves that are rooted both in the local cultures that were changing at the time, and in the global scene in which they were trying to be heard! The collection's nicely offbeat – much more so than any standard Rough Guide collections – and titles include "Durban Road" by West Nkosi, "Degoo" by Super Cayor De Dakar, "Kalulu Mwana" by Saleta Phiri & The AB Sounds, "Mbaquanga Blues" by Malombo, "Kai Kai" by Yam Yam, "Ipechakwa A Akem Kpee" by Gentleman Mike Ejeagha & His Premiers Dance Band, and "Hasabe" by Ayalew Mesfin.

VariousRough Guide To Psychedelic Cambodia (with download) (2015 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Rough Guide, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Around April 18, 2015
Unusual Cambodian grooves from the psychedelic years – recorded at a time when the nation was getting plenty of influences from western sources! Many of the tracks here are cover versions – done with lots of echo on the surfish or fuzzed-out guitars – and recast with local lyrics that may well completely change the mood of the tunes – kind of a new Cambodian culture rising up in the wake of the nation's relationship to the Vietnam war. Recording details on most of the tracks is sparse, but that's also the charm of the material too – mysterious sounds from a scene that was all but destroyed by the Khmer Rouge, but recently revived in two more contemporary tracks included here. Titles include "Cyclo" by Yos Olarang, "Paem Nas Sneha" by Pan Ron, "Jam 10 Kai Theit" by Ros Seresyothea, "Bros Ey Kov Prerl" by Pan Ron, "Thgnai Kor Chrer" by Sin Sisamouth, and "Komlos Sey Chaom" by Ros Seresyothea. Also includes contemporary cuts – "Tiger Phone Card" by Dengue Fever and "Whiskey Cambodia" by The Cambodian Space Project.

Rough Guide, Late 60s/2015. New Copy ... Around April 18, 2015
A mad mix of sounds that definitely lives up to the title – as sitars, tabls, and other traditional Indian instruments come into play with fuzzy guitars and freaky rhythms! The work here is partly from the 60s, partly from later years inspired by the roots of the style – and the collection mixes together music from a nicely diverse array of sources, all in search of a new genre that really comes together in the course of the album. Titles include "Chamber Of Dreams" by Jazz Thali, "Thillana" by Jyotsna Srikanth, "Moksha" by Ray Spiegel Ensemble, "A Mystical Morning" by Debashish Bhattacharya with John McLaughlin, "Dancing Drums" by Ananda Shankar, "Dance Music" by Kalyanji Anandji, "Dum Maro Dum" by Asha Bhosle, and "Satyam Shivam Sundaram" by Sunday Driver.

VariousRough Guide To Psychedelic Salsa (with download) (2015 Record Store Day Release ... LP
Rough Guide, Late 60s/2015. New Copy ... Around April 18, 2015
Tripped-out Latin sounds, both classic and contemporary – served up in a collection that bristles with excitement throughout! The initial wave of this music came from a late 60s stretch when the cats up in Harlem were getting a bit more freewheeling than usual – picking up not just the funky touches of the Latin Soul years, but also some big influences from the rock underground as well – which were mixed in with heavy percussion and jazzy riffs to create a whole new groove! And while this side of Latin music was quickly suppressed in the generation that followed, it's had a bit resurgence in recent years – as you'll here from some of the younger artists in the collection, who fit perfectly into the track selection. Titles include "Cannabis" by Los Pambele, "Recordando Los Soneros" by Ray Perez, "El Son Del Carangano" by Fruky Y Sus Tesos, "Naci De La Rumba Y Guaguanco" by Grupo Fantasma with Larry Harlow, "Dub Y Guaguanco" by Quantic, "Vamos Pa Dakar" by Orchestra Rytmo Africa Cubana, and "Londres" by Nelson Y Sus Estrellas.

✨✧ Sven LibaekNature Walkabout (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Festival/Votary (Australia), 1966. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An incredible record from the great Sven Libaek – a soundtrack for a land-based TV adventure that's every bit as great as his underwater music from the 70s! The style is very jazzy, and heavy on vibes and woodwinds – sounds that really showcase the best sound of the growing Australian jazz scene at the time, and its particularly strong influence from the LA scene, both cool jazz and 60s soundtracks – as well as some key European elements as well! Rhythms are wonderful – lively and loping, but also very gentle too – maybe an influence from bossa nova, but also very individual too. A gem through and through – and tracks include "Bush Theme", "Nature Walkabout", "Lonely Australian Landscape", "Fun Music", "Danger Elements", and "Excitement". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Luiz BacalovDjango (limited edition colored vinyl) ... LP
GDM/AMS (Italy), 1966. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A dark little western soundtrack from Luis Bacalov – one that's quite brooding overall, despite a rather catchy vocal tune on the title! There's some very odd instrumentation here – watery piano lines, floating bits of guitar, off-tuned strings – all used at different intervals, and in different ways – without as strongly of a unified feel as other albums of this nature. But it's those shifting sounds that make the record great – always creating an unsettling sort of mood, and one that's almost always in the darker, starker side of the spectrum. Bruno Nicolai handled orchestrations, and titles include "Blue Dark Waltz", "Django (Waiting)", "Django (Love Moment", "La Corsa (2nd Version)", "Vamonos Muchachos", "Duello Nel Fango", "Town Of Silence", "Epera Y Ataque", "Fruscii Notturni", "Django (Rage)" and more.

The approach is very striking – one of the more powerful moments of Czech film music from this amazing time – and every aspect of the instrumentation seems to take on a new sort of creepy feel in the setting. Titles include "This Charming Lady", "Potola Tibet", "Merciful Nature", "Poor Miss Carska", "Vision Of The Temple", "Lakme's Cremation", "Casino On Rose Street", and "Mr Dvorak & The Timetable Of Death".

Groovy sounds from this sunny 60s group – a sextet that features three girl singers and three guys – coming together in harmonies evolved from the folk pop generation, with plenty of sunshine modes in the mix! The record's nicely less polished than similar efforts on bigger labels – both in the production, and in the choice of material – which gives these guys a lot more depth than artists like We Five or Love Generation – and which makes for some slightly trippy moments at times too, especially when the echo goes up alongside the guitars! Titles include "Nature Is My Mother", "Gotta Keep Traveling", "It's What Happen Baby", "Let It All Hang Out", "On Stage Revelations", "Easy Woman", and "Some Do Some Don't". LP, Vinyl record album

CerroneLove In C Minor/Cerrone's Paradise/Supernature (3LP/3CD set) ... LP
Malligator/Because (France), 1976/1977. New Copy 3LP & 3CD (reissue)... $79.99
A wonderful package – a very limited set that includes the first three albums from Cerrone, with bonus CD versions as well! First up is Love In C Minor – the fantastic first album by Cerrone – a landmark disco record that features the 16 minute long "Love In C Minor" – a swirling bit of strings, beats, and female voices – one of those tunes that forever went onto change the face of dance music in the 70s! Cerrone really set up a whole new blueprint for club here – stretching things out plenty, and layering in subtle time and chord shifts that expose the proggish influences that filtered into French club as the 70s wore on! The title track's got some nice keyboards by the great Alan Hawkshaw – who sounds even better on the album's cool disco version of "Black Is Black" and the tight snare-beat original, "Midnite Lady". Cerrone's Paradise is Cerrone's second album – a swirling mix of disco beats and strings that follows very clearly on the spirit of his landmark first one! Like that album, this one's got a title track that runs well over 15 minutes long – building in a slowly dancing way that says everything about European disco styles that one track could ever hope to do! Other tunes on the album are shorter and tighter – with soulful vocals dancing in and out, and some nice keyboard work that makes the tunes sparkle with a sweet electric groove. Titles include "Take Me", "Time For Love", and "Cerrone's Paradise". Supernature is the height of French disco – a huge worldwide hit for Cerrone, a nutty bit of space disco that actually holds up pretty darn well over the years! The guy's not really a looker – and the strange "animal operation" cover almost makes this look like a prog rock album – which is where Cerrone probably got his inspiration for the incredible keyboard work on the set – but the record's a killer bit of club that went onto influence generations to come – and is arguably one of Cerrone's best moments ever! Includes the classic "Supernature", a catchy disco groover you'll recognize instantly – plus the tracks "Love Is Here", "Love Is The Answer", and "Sweet Drums". LP, Vinyl record album

United Artists/Parlophone, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Around April 18, 2015
The debut of the mighty Hawkwind – spacey, yet blues informed rock from the very and of the 60s/start of the 70s – the dawn of space rock as we know it! These fellas looked into their minds eyes and what what they saw was eerie echoes, lumbering rhythms and trippy atmospherics grounded just in enough in bluesy rock and more stable soundscapes. Pure excellence, and a record worthy of its legend. Titles include "Hurry On Sundown", "The Reason Is?", "Be Yourself", "Paranoia (Pts 1 & 2)", "See As You Really Are" and "Mirror Of Ilusion". (Note: This item is not for sale online until after the opening of business on Sunday, 4/19/15.

✨✧ VariousTheo Parrish – Black Jazz Signature (unmixed) ... LP
Black Jazz/Snow Dog (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy 2 LPs Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Theo Parrish takes on the music of Black Jazz Records – yet somehow manages to make the whole thing come across with a cosmic groove that's all his own! By that, we don't mean that Theo's messing with the cuts – just that his selection here really highlights the more expansively electric and rhythmically angular elements of the label's classic catalog – sounds that are clearly an inspiration for a huge number of 21st Century musicians and producer – not just Parrish himself! There's a richly spiritual vibe to the whole set – and the collection is easily one of the best presentations of the Black Jazz label we've ever heard – stunning from start to finish. The LP features a dozen Black Jazz tracks, all unmixed – and titles include "My Favorite Things" by Gene Russell, "Those Who Chant" by Walter Bishop, "Jupiter" and "Convulsions" by The Awakening, "Trance Dance" by Doug Carn, "Time & Space" by Rudolph Johnson, "Criss Cross" and "BE" by Calvin Keys, and "Blue Bossa" by Walter Bishop Jr. LP, Vinyl record album
