Made In Brasil with Victor MNumero Um ... LP
Nucleus, 1975. Sealed ... $26.99
A totally sweeeeeeeet batch of Brazilian grooves – recorded in San Francisco, with a great 70s Bay Area sound! Victor M leads the group on percussion and vocals – but the real charm of the set is in its electric piano riffing, and soulful electric vibe. Most of the cuts have vocals – kind of in a Sergio Mendes 70s style, or in the mode of some of Marcos Valle's more electric work – and although the tunes are mostly familiar numbers like "Reza", "Agua De Beber", "Zazueira", "Upa Neguinho", and "Crickets Sing For Anamaria", they're done in a mode that's very fresh – kind of a bridge between 60s Brazilian interpretations, and later ones by recent groups! LP, Vinyl record album
(Sealed original pressing!)

AntenaCamino Del Sol ... CD
Numero, Early 80s. Used ... $9.99
Bebel Gilberto eat your heart out – Antena explored the same electric-bossa territory you did, nearly 20 years before your first big record! The group were a short-lived French outfit who were one of the shining jewels in the crown of the lovely label Les Disques Du Crepuscule during the early 80s – and were a real breath of fresh air in the post-punk years with their light and jazzy approach to the groove. As you'll hear in this set, Antena's style borrows a lot from the bossa, but also throws in some wonderful poppish touches – including jangly guitars recorded in a similar mode to some of the other French/European indie groups of the time, and a slight darkness in production that almost gives a Martin Hannett-like undercurrent to the whole set. The group's album Camino Del Sol has been lovingly reissued with a great set of notes, as well as a series of bonus tracks from an additional ep – making for a beautiful 14 track package that will really help you rediscover this nearly-lost group! Titles include "Sissexa", "To Climb The Cliff", "Camino Del Sol", "Bye Bye Papaye", "Noelle A Hawaii", "The Boy From Ipanema", "Seaside Weekend", "Frantz", and "Ingenuous". CD

BoscoeBoscoe (with download) ... LP
Kingdom Of Chad/Numero, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.99
One of the hippest records ever to come out of Chicago – the sole recording by Boscoe, a group who was even more obscure and experimental than contemporaries like The Pharoahs or Artistic Heritage Ensemble! Like those groups, Boscoe has a very unique, very visionary approach – one that's not content just to echo the standard post-Coltrane modes that other spiritual jazz groups around the country were hitting – but which instead moves into territory that touches on the darker sides of funk, soul, and spoken word of the time – all with a message that's incredibly powerful, and conception that's wonderfully fresh throughout! The group's lineup features tenor, trumpet, trombone, guitar, bass, and drums – but they way they're put together is often far different than other funky combos – and it's clear that the group had as much of a sensibility about the overall sound of their record as they did their freer grooves. At times, there's a righteousness here that recalls the best of the early Westbound Records scene from Detroit – but there's an even higher agenda too, which is more in keeping with the spiritual aspriations of their Chicago contemporaries, and which really show up in the lyrics. The whole album's a masterpiece from start to finish – unlike anything that we can think of, still ripe for rediscovery today, and just the kind of set that makes us prouder than ever of our Chicago heritage! Titles include "We Ain't Free", "Money Won't Save You", "Now and Den", "He Keeps You", "I'm What You Need", and "Writin' On The Wall". LP, Vinyl record album

CreationAction Painting ... CD
Numero, Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $23.99 29.98
One of the great lost groups of the UK scene of the 60s – not lost to UK audiences, or to hipsters over the generations – but still an act that never made the impact on these shores that they should! The Creation are step in step right up there with early material by The Who or Small Faces – and share a similar groundbreaking re-fusion of American roots into a new London groove – all with searing guitars, clever wordplay, and a cutting-edge spirit that may well have kept them off our charts – but which makes them so great to discover all these many years later. You might have caught a few of their songs over the years – thanks to soundtrack placement from directors like Wes Anderson, or covers by many of their bigger fans. This 2CD set features 46 tracks in all, with remastering overseen by original producer Shel Talmy – and the set includes early sides by The Mark Four, some alternate takes, and even new mixes – plus an 80 page hardcover book with scores of photos, other images, session and discographical details, and a new essay too.

A gem of a record from one of the coolest UK groups of the 60s – served up here in a German release that maybe gives The Creation one of their most vibrant covers ever! Despite the European issue of the material, the tracks here are all Brit brilliance from the group and producer Shel Talmy – served up in their incredible blend of mod grooves, garagey rawness, and early psych production – sharp and tight at the same time, and years ahead of its time! Titles include "Can I Join Your Band", "Making Time", "Tom Tom", "Biff Bang Pow", "Painterman", and "Nightmares" – plus covers of "Cool Jerk", "Hey Joe", and "Like A Rolling Stone".

Husker DuSavage Young Du (3CD set) ... CD
Numero, Early 80s. New Copy 3CD ... $26.99 35.98
As mammoth of an archival box set for a post punk band as important as this one as we're ever likely to see! Savage Young Du collects a huge number of formative tracks by the Twin Cities legends, and without diving into the rancorous personal history of the band members post-split, it's astounding that this even exists. But the most amazing thing is how strongly it lives up to their later legacy. 47 of the 69 tracks – including a wealth of surprisingly great sound live material, demos, early 7-inch tracks and alternate version of their first (live) album – have never been released before and it's kind of stunning how brilliant the band is at this nascent stage. All the material is from 1979 to 1982, pre-SST, and true to Numero Group standards, it's put together with the utmost care, including a hefty little hardcover book worth the price alone. Includes "Do You Remember", "Sore Eyes", "Do The Bee", "Nuclear Nightmare", "Insects Rule The World", "Sexual Economics", "Statues", "Amusement", "Writer's Cramp", Guns At My School", "Let's Go Die", "Don't Say A Word", "From The Gut", "Brick Layer", "Target", "Gravity", "Real World", "Out On A Limb", "It's Not Fair" and tons more.

Syl JohnsonMy Gift ... LP
Federal/Numero, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $12.99
A perfect snapshot of early Syl Johnson – with all the 45 sides he cut for Federal at the very end of the 50s and into the first couple years of the 60s! This is incredibly prescient work, building off the formative bedrock of late 50s rhythm & blues, while paving the way for gritty but beautiful soul to come! Even at this early point in his career, Syl's voice is a mature vessel for raw emotion. What a gift it is! Includes Syl's smoking cover of James Brown's "Please, Please, Please", "Teardrops", "They Who Love", "Lonely Man", "His Gift", "I've Got To Find My Baby", "She's So Fine – I Just Gotta Make Her Mine", "I Wanna Know", "Well Oh Well", "I'm Looking For My Baby" and more. 14 tracks in all.

LaraajiVision Songs ... CD
Numero, 1984. New Copy ... $11.99 14.98
Music of a very different style than some of Laraaji's other work – more tuneful and song-based – with shorter tracks that show a whole different side of his talents! Laraaji's gotten great acclaim for his homespun spiritual sounds – long tracks that first found a home in Brian Eno's Ambient series, then came out on a variety of self-released records, and have even seen a big new revival in recent years. But the music here is a mixture of echoey vocals and rhythm patterns – songs that almost feel like special prayers of motivation and uplift – a karmic legacy stripped down more for an 80s generation, but still filled with a rich amount of spirit! The man's a surprisingly strong singer, with a trippy quality that really fits his lyrics – and almost gives some of the songs a late 60s sort of LA underground vibe. Titles include "Is This Clear", "Hare Jaya Jaya Rama", "Great Bells", "Laws Of Manifestation", "Cosmic Joe", "We Shall Be Lifted", and "I Can Only Bliss Out". CD

Jackie ShaneAny Other Way ... CD
Numero, Late 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $18.99 25.98
Fantastic sounds from Jackie Shane – a Canadian soul singer who's achieved a bit of recent fame, due to her legacy as an underground trans figure – but an artist who'd already be a winner, even without such a fascinating back story! Fortunately, both sides of Jackie's life are included here – a stunning array of rare soul singles from the late 60s, alongside a heavy package of notes, photos, and other bits of Shane's unusual story – all given the wonderful Numero Group treatment! These guys have a way of digging out stories even where you might not expect them – so in the case of Jackie, their efforts are extra-important – and the heavy weight of the record really seems to emphasize that fact – as the whole thing's really a double-whammy of Numero genius. But again, even without all of that, the whole thing's more than essential for any fan of underground soul – especially female soul – half the set features her rare singles, the other lost live work – with titles that include "Sticks & Stones", "Cruel Cruel World", "Comin Down", "In My Tenement", "Send Me Some Lovin", "I've Really Got The Blues", "Stand Up Straight & Tall", "Cruel Cruel World", "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag", "Any Other Way", "Shotgun", "I Don't Want To Cry", and "Money".

UnwoundNew Plastic Ideas ... LP
Numero, 1994. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99 19.98
Unwound at what might be the peak of their earlier, more abrasive mode – but for all the jagged, incendiary and hard-hitting noise rock here, it's got moments of jarring beauty and ominous melody that predict some of their dreamier work to come. Unwound is one those band of their era that it can be tough to describe without lumping them in with other the bands pairing raw noise with oddly melodic sounds – but the thing about Unwound is they do it better than most of their peers, and in a way stands the test of time really well. Decades later it's as strong as ever. Includes "Entirely Different Matters", "What Was Wound", "Envelope", "Hexenzsene", "Abstraktions", "All Souls Day", "Usual Dosage", "Arboretum" and "Friction Friction". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousEccentric Soul – A Red Black Green Production ... CD
Numero, Mid 70s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A killer collection of east coast soul from the 70s – work that originally appeared on a handful of different labels, but which was all put together by Robert Hosea Williams – an unsung producer working out of a small studio in Silver Springs – with an incredible ear for up-and-coming talent! The music here is totally deep and righteous throughout – the hippest of the indie label scene on the east coast – and work that really lives up to the progressive, righteous reference you'd get from the Red, Black, & Green in the title! There's plenty of group soul here – of a type that mixes older harmony modes with hipper 70s references – creating a really badass approach to soul music that's simply mindblowing – and way different than the mainstream variants that were hitting the charts at the time. The whole thing's great – one of the best Numero comps in years – and titles include "Phoney People" and "I Really Really Love You" by Father's Children, "Sleepwalking" and "Let's Do It Over" by The Summits, "Don't Worry About The Joneses" and "We're Two Fools In Love" by Dysons Faces, "Day By Day" and "It Must Be Love" by The Exceptions Featuring Mark Greene, "Town Called Nowhere" and "I Need Your Love" by Skip Mahoney & The Casuals, and "Summer In The Parks" and "Generation" by East Coast Connection.

Numero, Late 60s. New Copy ... $15.99 18.98
That's a sweet image on the cover – and the grooves inside are equally dynamic too – a really wonderful collection that's easily one of the most compelling in Numero's Eccentric Soul series! The work here all hails from the tiny San Antonio scene of the late 60s – but much of the music has a sound that's way different than you might expect from Texas soul – often with great harmonies that recall the best of the east coast groups of the time, and occasionally with a few brown-eyed touches that echo the style of East LA! There's a wonderfully heartbreaking feel to many of these tracks – and the set's heavy focus on mellower numbers is totally great – and gives the whole thing a wonderful late nite sort of vibe that's usually quite hard to find in compilations like this. As usual, Numero's done a great job with the notes and history of the label – but the music alone is more than enough – a heady brew of cuts that include "Little Girl Blue" and "Try Loving Me" by The Webs, "I Gotta Know" by Tonettes, "Give Your Love To Me" and "Ain't No Big Thing" by Little Jr Jesse & The Tear Drops, "Cry & Wonder Why" by Doc & Sal, "Must Be Alright" and "Hey It's Love" by The Commands, "She's Gotta Have Soul" by Bobby Blackmon & The Soul Express, and "I Can't Take No More" by Willie Cooper & The Webs.

A great look at an obscure indie soul label from the Cleveland scene at the end of the 60s – and a company that's definitely a cut above, given that it released some early O'Jays singles in the years before their crossover fame in the 70s – and members of that group also wrote a fair bit of singles for the label too! Besides a tie to the O'Jays, the Saru label also had a tight, well-chosen roster – one that really helped make Cleveland a hotbed for sweet soul at the time – easily competing with the hippest singers and groups from Philly, New York, and New Jersey – thanks to a string of excellent 45s on both the Saru imprint, and related Horoscope Records! As usual with Numero, the whole package is filled with fantastic details and photos that are as compelling as the music itself – and as for the music, this time around the Numero folks really get to the heart of the matter with a non-stop array of excellent material – not unreleased tapes, but killer 45s that really show Saru as a hell of a great soul label during its short run of records. Titles include "For The Rest Of My Life" and "Tears Don't Care Who Cry" by The Out Of Sights, "I Believe" and "Are You Man Enough" by Sir Stanely, "Stand In For Love" and "Love's Needed" by Pandella Kelly, "Come Back Boy" and "The Last Time" by The Ba-Roz, "Bound" and "I Remember You" by Ponderosa Twins, "Just To Be With You" and "Got To Make It Right" by Elements, "Can't Make It Without You" by Michael Bell, "Got To Get My Broom Out" by David Peoples, "Just To Be With You" by Bobby Dukes, and "Now He's Home" and "Shattered Man" by The O'Jays.

VariousHome Schooled – The ABCs Of Kid Soul ... LP
Numero, Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $23.99 25.99
Jackson 5, move over – because the folks at Numero Records have uncovered a whole host of rare kid soul acts from the 70s – most of them a fair bit funkier than their Motown contemporaries! The tracks here all clearly follow the lead started by Michael and his brothers at the end of the 60s – but the music is way more than just a simple copycat of Jackson modes – as each of these artists have a really individual approach, and a heck of a lot of personality in their music – despite their youthful years. In true Numero fashion, most of the cuts here are from tiny little labels – issued only as singles back in the day, but produced with a great deal of enthusiasm for the music – and a confident, competent sound that's quite striking, given the age of the performers. The package comes with complete notes on the music – opening up a whole world of lesser-known kid soul acts – and titles include the amazing "Trust Your Child" by Patrizia & Jimmy, plus "I'm Not Ready For Love" by Promise, "One Is Enough For One" by Jack & the Mods, "Now That School Is Through" by Cindy & The Playmates, "Jersey Slide (part 1)" by 3 Stars, "You Are My Dream" by 3 Simmons, "Can't Let You Break My Heart" by Quantrells, "If You're Looking For Love" by Triads, "Yellow Ribbons" by Atons, "Sweet Pea" by Altyrone Deno Brown, "Time After Time" by Step By Step, "Time" by Otis The 3rd, and "Little Girl" by Michael Washington.

Vanguard, 1960. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the most essential debut albums of the 60s folk revival, and the early 60s in general – the great first album from Joan Baez on the Vanguard label – a masterpiece of emotional interpretation and impeccable folk guitar playing! Joan Baez is arguably more legendary as a figure than she his as a musician, in that she was a leader in a movement, but the singer and musician is what makes the biggest impact on us, and here she is at her finest. She's accompanied by second guitarist Fred Hellerman on about half the songs, which include "Silver Dagger", "East Virginia", "House Of The Rising Sun", "All My Trails", "Wildwood Flower", "John Riley", "Little Moses", "Ek Preso Numero Nueve" and more.

Light In The Attic, 1975. Used ... Out Of Stock
A five-track EP, but a set that also packs the power of most full albums of soul we've heard from the 70s – thanks to a deep level of quality throughout! The material was originally recorded for RCA in 1975, at a time when Robbie Hill's Family Affair were the backing group for The Main Ingredient – and had not only close ties to the group musically, but also got their help in supporting this recording! Vocals are by members of the Hill family, but have this great mix of deep tones and soaring highs that really recalls the more famous trio – but served up here with wickedly funky backings that have got to be some of the heaviest sounds recorded for RCA at the time! The whole thing feels like a sweet stash of rare indie soul records from the time – the best bits you might find on a Numero label collection, for example – and titles include "Peace Of Mind", "Don't Give Up", "Gotta Get Back", "I'll See You", and "Love Is Waiting For You".

An amazing compilation – a decade in the making, and filled with wonderful grooves – most of which have never appeared on CD or LP reissues! And while the music itself is already wonderful, the package also includes an amazing 80 page book, too – a rich research project that digs deep into the American underground of the 70s – and features a wealth of photos, images, and historical details on music that never got it's due back in the day! The set's based around the groundbreaking series of Soul Cal 12" reissues put together by Stones Throw about a decade ago – wonderful records that unearthed rare grooves that fall beautifully in a space between funk and club – almost all originally issued on tiny little labels from all over the US, but working together to create a rich vibe in the set. Given the book, there's a Numero-like heft to the whole thing – although the range of grooves is even greater than one of their collections – and titles include "Ecology" by Anubis, "You Can Be A Star" by Luther Davis, "Don't Get Discouraged" by UPC All Stars, "Things Cannot Stop Forever" by Stanton Davis, "Free Your Mind" by Record Player, "Get Down" by Freedom Express, "Keep Running Away" by Clifford Nyren, "Love Is" by Leon Mitchison & The Eastex Freeway Band, "What It Takes To Live" by Key & Cleary, "I'm Gonna Miss You Girl" by Ellis & Cephas, "It's A Bad Feeling" by Mixed Sugar, and "Put A Smile On Time" by Rhythm Machine.

✨✧ Mike KoskinenJazz Liisa 9 (with bonus download) ... LP
Svart (Finland), 1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A pretty amazing set – recorded live for Finnish radio in the early 70s, and featuring a group that really shows the power of that scene at the time! The lineup features trumpeter Mike Koskinen at the helm – blowing in a much more outside way than some of his later studio albums, with a cascading array of tones and soundshapes that recall some of the hipper British work of the end of the 60s – such as records like Mike Westbrook or Michael Gibbs – both of whom would be good comparisons here, especially in the tension between the idea of the group, and the strong solos of the individual members. Other players include Juhani Aaltonen on tenor and flute, Mircea Stan on trombone, Kaj Backlund on trumpet, Pekka Poyry on flute and soprano sax, Olli Ahvenlahti on piano and Fender Rhodes, and Edward Vesala on drums – and titles include "PS DC", "Murusia 2", "Numero Puolitoista", "Song For Sally", and "Peretelmia". LP, Vinyl record album

FloatersFloaters ... LP
ABC, 1977. Very Good ... $3.99
Their classic, with the great long version of "Float On", which is a monster soul cut that stands tall with steppers and rappers alike. It's probably the best track they ever did, and it's all here in a version that's nearly 12 minutes long – with loads of samples that you'll recognize from numerous recent records. Also includes a number of other great, mellow 70s soul numbers, like "You Don't Have To Say You Love Me", "Everything Happens For A Reason" and "No Stronger Love". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has lightly bent corners.)

✨✧ Genius/GZALiquid Swords ... LP
Geffen, 1995. Used 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A Shaolin hip hop essential! Heavy numerological rhymes, and the best production on any Wu project (still to this day, even). One of our absolute favorite albums in the classic Wu pantheon, and indisputably one of the very best – one of the very few that plays with hard solidity from start to finish. The way GZA's lowkey, unfazable flow delivers this sharp, gritty storytelling over prime RZA production – seriously, it is real Genius! Includes "Labels", "Cold World", "Shadowboxin", "Liquid Swords", "Living In The World Today", "Killah Hills 10304", "Investigative Reports", "Gold", "Duel Of The Iron Mic", "4th Chamber", "Hell's Wind Staff", "Unexplained", "Swordsman" and "I Gotcha Back". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Freddy KingBossa Nova & Blues ... LP
King, 1963. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Bossa nova and blues? Turns out they're a surprisingly great combination – but not in a mode that's really the more mainstream conception of either – and instead more of that mix of Brazilian rhythms and soul you'd find in early 60s work by The Drifters! The record's a real standout in Freddie King's years at King – not just for the unusual rhythmic style, but also because he sings a fair bit – in this earnest, soulful mode that's a wonderful match for his gritty guitar solos throughout. Production is almost more in a New Orleans or New York indie soul mode than the usual King session of the time – and titles include "I'd Love To Make Love To You", "Bossa Nova Blues", "The Bossa Nova Watusi Twist", "You Walked In", "One Hundred Years", and "Walk Down That Aisle". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing with deep groove. Cover has yellowed masking tape on the seams, a large stain on front, wear and aging, and numerous Sample stamps on back.)

✨✧ Veryan WestonDiscoveries On Tracker Action Organs ... CD
Emanem (UK), 2014. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Incredible improvisations on a variety of different church organs – all known as "tracker action organs" – with amazing sound throughout! Weston's one of the few folks we've ever heard improvise on a church organ (Fred Van Hove is another) – and the mode on the instrument is completely mesmerizing – as the musician is not only playing the keys and the pedals, but also the air in the room, and the room itself – given the strongly resonant possibilities of the performance! All those elements are captured beautifully here – and with a sense of beauty and color that's breathtaking throughout. Titles include "Quiet Fanfare", "Tirpartite", "Fair With Ground", "Poco A Poco", "Air In A G Pipe", and "Numerous Discoveries". CD
