Del-AiresZombie Stomp 1959 to 1963 ... LP
Norton, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy Gatefold ... $12.99
A great blend of early rock and monster movie aesthetics from The Dynamic Del-Aires – a north New Jersey group who only cut a handful of singles, but also managed a key appearance in The Horror of Party Beach before fading away into obscurity! Despite that short time in the record racks, though – the group is totally great – a combo that almost blows away the best of the Northwest, and certainly has their same sort of raw, rocking, instrumental-heavy approach – although some numbers also feature some cool vocals too! This package brings together the rare singles, the movie tracks, and even some unissued live and demo tracks too – all in a beautiful-looking package with lots of photos of the group in action. Titles include "Drag", "So Far So Long", "Zombie Stomp", "The Crawl", "Stubborn Kind Of Fellow", "Berserk", "Treble Rock", "Sing Sing Sing", "Someplace Else", and even a "Horror Of Party Beach" movie trailer!

Sun RaOuter Darkness – Space Poetry Vol 3 ... LP
Norton, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $12.99
The third incredible chapter of lost Sun Ra material in the Space Poetry series – and a set that's a bit different than the first two! Side one of this record features two longer numbers – in contrast to the shorter poems on previous volumes – with Ra telling these cool little stories over music, "I Gotta Get Away" and "Know What It's Like On My Planet" – both richly illustrated not only by the backings, but also by his vivid narration – surprisingly dramatic at times, with a bad-rapping feel that's almost funky! Side two features two versions of "The Outer Darkness" – one with a repeated text by Wisteria, over weird electric backings – the other with June Tyson over even wilder electronics! Other tracks are from a 1977 on-air performance in Philly – very spiritual numbers that include "Black Holes In Space", "This Is My Day", "A Better World", and "The Scheme Of Words" – with Ra up front and lots of weird voices over organ in the back!

Sun RaStrange Worlds In My Mind – Space Poetry Vol 1 ... LP
Norton, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $12.99
An amazing side of Sun Ra's mighty talents – the first in a series of albums that focuses on vocal material from Ra, The Arkestra, and certain key guest performers! The style of music here is every bit as great as you'd hear on classic Saturn releases by Sun Ra – avant jazz, with plenty of offbeat and exotic touches, and some weird electronics too – but over the music, there's also vocals on every track – some recited by Ra himself, with a focus on his more poetic lyrics – some delivered by the enigmatic Yochanan, or vocalist Roy Stubbs. Tracks are shorter than usual Saturn album tracks – making us guess that some of these were intended for singles, although a number of cuts here are from unreleased tapes and rehearsals, too. Titles include "Message To Earthman", "I Am Trying To Find Myself", "The Damned Air", "My Children", "If They Only Knew", "My World Is The Space Way", "Death Speaks To The Negro", and "I Am An Instrument".

Sun RaSub-Dwellers – Space Poetry Vol 2 ... LP
Norton, Late 60s/1982. New Copy ... $12.99
Amazing sounds from Sun Ra – vocal recitations, weird words, and spoken bits – all set to some mighty cosmic music! The work here is all previously unissued, and pulled from rare tapes recorded in 1966, 1968, and 1982 – an amazing discovery in the Ra archive, with a real focus on his more poetic side! The set begins with some wonderfully echoey bits – Ra's vocals in the lead, and some cool abstract sounds and electronics behind him. Other tracks have even more obscure elements in the background, and a few others provide some more familiar jazz elements – but overall, the whole thing's got a wickedly spaced-out feel – very much what you might expect if you'd ever heard the myth of Ra before hearing one of his records! Titles include "The Universe Is Endless", "The Sub-Dwellers", "Music Is A Universal Language", "The Universe Sent Me", "A Cosmic Dimension Of Music", "They Taught Me To Share", and "Worship Of A Statue".

Sun Ra & OthersMy Way Is The Spaceway – Space Poetry Vol 4 ... LP
Norton, Early 60s. New Copy ... $12.99
An incredible chapter in the rich career of the legendary Sun Ra – tracks that blend together music and spoken word passages – the latter of which are usually in support of his unique philosophy of the cosmos! The titles here really give an idea of the thoughts within – "The Music Is Like A Mirror", "My Way Is The Spaceways", "The Music Is A Sound Image", and "The Music Is A Vibration" – all very long tracks that are spoken by Ra in this very powerful voice – with a presence that we don't always hear from him this well on record, often set to backings that feature reed work on flute or tenor sax, mixed with a bit of light percussion. These aren't just readings, or poetry mixed with jazz – but a great glimpse at the truly theatrical side of Sun Ra's presentation, served up beautifully here in this special package.

✨✧ Sun Ra & OthersSecond Stop Is Jupiter – Doo Wop From Saturn & Beyond Vol 2 ... LP
Norton, Mid 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Interstellar vocal group numbers and doo wop from the Sun Ra vaults – a couple rare release and a bunch of previously unissued numbers featuring The Cosmic Rays, Crystals, Nu Sounds and Juanita Rogers – teenage vocal group numbers, bits of bebop and spacey doo wop released for the first time ever! The Second Stop Is Jupiter is Volume 2 in Norton's compilations of early, vocals centered Sun Ra material – beautifully done, and worthy for more than just Ra completists – it's a treasure trove of leftfield 50s vocals on top of a nice early snapshot of the spacey sounds of Sun Ra. Includes straighter tunes and a couple standards with the interplanetary touches at the outer edges, more forthright spacey harmonies, tunes with easygoing piano and voice arrangements, and others touched by exotica and pointing the way towards Ra travels to come!

✨✧ VariousMad Mike Monsters Vol 3 – A Tribute To Mad Mike Metrovich ... LP
Norton, 1960s. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Magical music from the days when radio really mattered – an assortment of raw and raunchy singles all popularized by Pittsburgh DJ Mad Mike Metrovich in the 60s! Mad Mike had an ear that was unlike anyone else – a way of seeking out unusual tunes with a gritty edge – cuts that fell far from the charts, and included a rich array of garage, instrumental, and R&B-influenced styles! Even at the height of his popularity, Mike was dedicated to digging up little-heard singles – and would often work towards keeping them obscure by covering up the labels – a practice that was still yet to come in hip hop or Northern soul scenes. This amazing series does a great job of making Mike's music live again – combining rare singles with a few radio spots too – and packaging the whole thing will full notes on Mike, the Pittsburgh scene, and the rich array of record stores and radio stations that allowed music this great to exist! Titles on this third volume include "Firewater" by Premieres, "Strollie Bun" by Blonde Bomber, "Malanese" by Avalons, "Monkey Man" by Baby Huey & The Babysitters, "The Birds" by Motivations, "Oo Ma Liddi" by JJ Jackson & The Jackals, "Cotton" by Duvals, "Come On Back" by Big Syl Barnes, "Zebra" by Youngsters, "Done Done The Slop" by Ervin Rucker, "Cherry Juice" by Marino Choice, "The Hunch" by Mad Mike & The Maniacs, and "Uncle John" by Wild Child Gipson.

✨✧ A-BonesNot Now! ... LP
Norton, 2009. Used ... Out Of Stock
Garage galore from The A-Bones – one of the few groups who manage to get a sound like this right on the money – with a searing edge that never fails to grab our ears! The approach here is stark, simple, and plenty darn effective – plenty of raspy guitar and keyboard lines, driven by rattletrap drums, and topped with vocals that are often as fuzzy as the other instruments – but with a compellingly classic sound that takes us back to our favorite lost gems of the 60s garage underground. There's a bit of tenor in the mix at times too, and Dave Baby Cortez guests on organ on the sweet track "Cat Nip"! Other titles include "Outcast", "Shallow Grave", "Restless", "Geraldine", "Don't Talk About Him", "Bing Bong", "Granny Tops Em At The Hop", and "The Rooster". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sun Ra & OthersRocket Ship Rock ... LP
Norton, 1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Wild and wooly Rocket Ship Rock from Sun Ra and his Arkestra – featuring shout blues vocalist Yochanan – often billed as "the man from outer space" and a cat who could give Screamin Jay Hawkins a run for his money in the excitable oddball category – jumping 60s r&b with an interstellar theme, freaked out jazz, and unhinged genius from the Saturn vaults! Rocket Ship Rock features material that's the next stratospheric step from the early doo wop era recordings, with Yochanan coming unhinged without ever jettisoning his considerable charisma, on most of the numbers – including rare Saturn tracks, unissued and alternate and rehearsal takes – plus rare numbers other vocalists including Little Mack, Lacy Gibson and Ebah (both from the later 60s when Ra was going crazy for the Batman themes) and Don "Dino" Dean. Amazing spacey 60s soul & r&b with a wild eyed grit and the Arkestra in it's nicely gritty realm of the cosmos. Very well packaged by the folks at Norton, with nice liner notes, too. Titles include "Muck Muck", "Hot Skillet Momma", "Rocket Ship Rock", "The Sun Man Speaks", "Message To Earth Man" (#s 1& 2) with Yochanan, plus "Tell Her To Come On Home" feat Little Mack, "I Am Gonna Unmask The Batman" feat Lacy Gibson and an unissued version with Ebah, plus "Space Stroll" featuring Don "Dino" Dean.

Electric Flag/Paul BeaverTrip – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Sidewalk/Curb, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $17.99 19.98
One of the trippiest soundtracks of the 60s – a wonderful blend of psych tracks from The Electric Flag, and moogier electronic moments from the great Paul Beaver! The Flag are at their best here – playing tunes that move from short bursts of fuzz to longer jams – laid out with great work from Mike Bloomfield and Nick Gravenites on guitars, Barry Goldberg on organ, and Buddy Miles on drums – with a nice sense of arrangement and juxtaposition that rivals Spirit's equally great soundtrack material for Model Shop. This one's more of an all-out rocker – although the moog balances things out nicely – and the whole thing's definitely a cut above the usual thrown-together exploitation soundtrack of the period. There's lots of little crazy cuts, and a long one called "Fine Jung Thing" – plus the titles "Gettin' Hard", "Peter Gets Off", "The Other Ed Norton", "Psyche Soap", and "Joint Passing".

✨✧ EsqueritaEsquerita! ... LP
Capitol, 1959. Sealed ... $13.99
Standout early work from the mighty Esquerita – an artist you might initially write off as a Little Richard copycat, but one who also delivers a whole lot more in the end! The groove here is rough R&B, inflected with a touch of early soul – and the piano lines are worth the price of admission, played at a level that goes back to early New Orleans roots, but with more 50s bluesy currents – often alongside some tenor and guitar that rival the best instrumentation you'd find on indie singles at the time from King and Atlantic – quite a surprise for the normally-pop Capitol Records. And the vocals are something else, too – certainly with a soaring, screaming range – but also just wonderful when they're more down to earth, and in the groove. Titles include "Hey, Miss Lucy", "Why Did It Take You So Long", "She Left Me Cryin'", "Get Back Baby", "I Need You", "Maybe Baby", and "I'm Battie Over Hattie". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ FantasticsAll The People ... LP
Freestyle (UK), 2011. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Keyboard flavored funky, jazzy sweetness from The Fantastics – who've had a pretty terrific run of funky 45s and a tight full length – delivering their best work yet and one of our favorite albums on Freestyle of the past couple years with All The People! There's a real love of timeless jazzy soul and funk, with some Latin-y percussion and harder hitting funk on a couple tunes, but what's great is how assured and sort of cohesive the vibe is – they're not rolling through genres, it's got a tight feel and the musicianship is totally stellar. The group features modern funk veteran Greg Boraman of the Soul Providers and Reverend Cleatus & The Soul Saviours on Hammond and other keys, with Pete Collison on guitar, Raydn Hunter on bass, James Smith on drums, Mark Norton on sax & flute, and some guest players – most notably, Sulent Fleming – who delivers some sultry, smoky soul vocals on a handful of numbers. Includes "Mushroom Strut", "Swwetback", "Somewhere Finally", "All The People", "No Right Turns", "Know No Gods", "I Breathe", "The Bone Breaker", "Cold Case" and "Cecil's Slide". LP, Vinyl record album
