Shorty RogersWizard Of Oz & Other Harold Arlen Songs ... LP
RCA, 1959. Very Good+ ... $6.99
A pretty darn great record, and a lot more swinging than you'd expect! The basic theme is the Wizard Of Oz – but Shorty makes the tunes groove way way more than they ever did, and thanks to help from hip players like Jimmy Giuffre, Herb Geller, and Bud Shank, the tracks have loads of breakway moments that are nice and jazzy! In way, working in this sort of tightly restricted set was a great way to get Rogers out of his mid 50s slump – when he was writing himself into a corner with the same sort of chamber jazz numbers all the time. In this sort of album, he's already got the basic pattern – and is free to really open up the band and the charts with the sort of creativity that he began his career with. Titles include "The Jitterbug", "Over The Rainbow", "We're Off To See The Wizard", and "Ding Dong! The Witch Is Dead". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label mono pressing with deep groove. Cover has a small sticker in one corner, and what might be an Alan Dale autograph on back.)

VariousWizards Of Oz – A Monstrous Psychedelic Bubble Exploding In Your Mind – Compiled & Mixed By The Amorphous Androgynous ... LP
Festival/Warner (Australia), Late 60s/2015. New Copy 2LP ... About April 22, 2015 (delayed)
A treasure trove of rare and underground psychedelia – all hand-picked, and mixed together in one massive 2CD set by the Amorphous Androgynous! Psych had a great run in Australia in the 60s – and continued strongly over the decades – partly because the Australian underground was so remote, and so un-trendy, it was often a place where artists didn't have to quickly abandon some styles, and move quickly into new ones. That rich legacy is presented here – in a collection that's heavy on late 60s and early 70s tracks, but which also features material from all other decades too – really beautifully chosen, and laid together in a way that the space of years doesn't ever show at all – thanks to the sonic genius of The Amorphous Androgynous. Titles include "Waves Of Aquarius" by Kanguru, "Matter Of Time" by Railroad Gin, "12Lb Toothbrush" by Madder Lake, "Moulding Of The Red Earth" by Rob Thomsett, "Governor Lane" by Sjc Powell, "The Real Thing" by Russell Morris, "Gods Of Norse" by Cybotron, "H Tuom Tuhs" by The Missing Links, "It Is Not Meant To Be" by Tame Impala, "Fantastic Explosion Of Time" by Pond, "Walking" by Ash Grunwald, and "Mercy Killing" by The Sunset Strip.

✨✧ Black SabbathParanoid ... LP
Warner, 1971. Very Good- Gatefold ... $16.99
Quite possibly the greatest moment of genius ever from Black Sabbath – and a genre-changing record that influenced generations! The group are at their lean, raw best here – free from any cliches at all, and working in an incredibly heady brew of fuzzy guitar, romping bass, and dark drums – all topped by the instantly recognizeable screech of the young Ozzy Osborne! Guitarist Tony Iommi virtually redefines rock use of the guitar with this record alone – and the Oz follows suit with some of the creepiest vocals set to record ever. Titles include the classics "Paranoid" and "Iron Man", plus "War Pigs", "Planet Caravan", "Electric Funeral", "Hand Of Doom", and "Rat Salad". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Terry GibbsTake It From Me ... CD
Impulse (Japan), 1964. Used ... $26.99
A really nice little session from Terry Gibbs – a rare one-off album for Impulse, and a straight jazz record that stands out from some of Terry's more gimmick-oriented albums of the 60s! Gibbs plays the vibes beautifully here – hitting with this sense of touch that really shines through – a really personal element that grabs us almost more than on earlier albums. The group's got a light, easygoing swing – one that really lets Terry take the lead at most points – and players include Kenny Burrell on guitar, Sam Jones on bass, and Louis Hayes on drums. There's a few nice whimsical numbers on the set – showing Terry's (and the 60s in general) trend towards using the vibes in new ways and for new grooves – and titles include "Oge", "El Fatso", "Take It From Me", "Gee Dad It's A Deagan", and "8 LBs 10 oz".

✨✧ Latin Blues Band Featuring Luis AvilesTake A Trip Pussycat ... LP
Speed, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A wild wild album of Latin soul – one of the maddest albums ever recorded for the legendary Speed label! The group, like a rare few others of their generation, are an insane mix of Latin jamming, psychedelic soul, and stoner funk riffing – all sifted together in a blender, with a sound that brings out the best aspects in all elements involved! The album's got some wonderful bouncy cuts with a Latin soul groove and weird English lyrics – like "Lay An Oz On Me Baby", "I'll Be A Happy Man", and "Pussycat" – the kind of raw, wild, and very groovy tracks that you'd buy an album like this for. And there's also a totally great, totally tight descarga cut called "The Cow", that runs for 8 minutes with a very firey groove and lots of amazing playing! And if that wasn't enough, the cover's got a wild psychedelic image of a nude body with lots of colored lights projected over it, and a feeling that's about as trippy as the band must have been when they recorded this one! Other tracks include "Hasta Cuando", "Take A Trip", and "Pura Falsedad". LP, Vinyl record album

Randa & The Soul KingdomWhat You Need ... CD
Freestyle (UK), 2011. New Copy ... $4.99
The second album funk & soul combo Randa & The Soul Kingdom – leading lights of the fertile Oz scene of the late 00/early 10s – fronted by powerful frontwoman Randa, backed by a tight Soul Kingdom that can and does handle blistering raw funk, moddish soul and classic handclap live R&B, to stripped down disco soul! The set's produced by Lance Ferguson of The Bamboos, of whom Randa & The Soul Kingdom are clearly akin, but they have a pretty incredible range that's as unique as it is impressive. Another gratifying win for the Freelstyle label! Includes "Power In Me", "Love Sick", "The Things", "Watch It", "Save Us", "Cold", "Be Yourself", "What You Need" and "Now I'm Free". CD

VariousBig Ol' Bag O' Boogaloo Vol 3 ... LP
Andale, Late 60s. New Copy ... $9.99
A third great bag of boogaloo – and easily one of the hippest Latin series we've ever carried! As with other volumes, this batch of tracks is dug from the deepest underground of the late 60s east coast Latin scene – the smaller labels that lived in the shadows of Fania, Tico, and Alegre – imprints like Speed, Ghetto, and a few others – all serving up rougher-edged Latin than you might know from the hits! The sound here is often in the best Latin Soul or boogaloo mode – but there's often some rougher edges that make the tracks particularly interesting – ways of approaching the grooves that are quite unique, and a mix of vocal and production techniques that never fail to blow our minds! Titles include "Soul Mambo" by Bruce Cloud, "So Good" by Milton Zapata, "Already Satisfied" by Tony Middleton & Bobby Matos, "Rainy Night All Over" by Solid State, "Lay An OZ On Me Baby" by Latin Blues Band, "Morty's Harlem" by Moon People, "Wabble With Boogaloo" by Orquesta Olivieri, and "Riki Chi" by La Orquesta Boogaloo.

✨✧ Robert WyattEnd Of An Ear (180 gram pressing) ... LP
CBS/Cherry Red (UK), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Early solo genius from Robert Wyatt – a key set recorded before his tragic career-changing accident – and one that has him playing drums, piano, and organ! There's a bit more Soft Machine here than on the mellower, later Wyatt solo sets – and the record features excellent jazz-based contributions from players that include Mark Charig on cornet and Elton Dean on alto and saxello! Tunes are relatively abstract in parts, with a strong percussive element – almost more like groups that Wyatt influenced heavily in later years – such as This Heat or Tortoise – and the set's a great reminder of the place from which Robert started – a record that already would have been enough, even without all his later contributions to music. Titles include "To Nick Everyone", "To Mark Everywhere", "To Oz Alien Daevyd & Gilly", and "To The Old World". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Brian MayTurkey Shoot ... CD
Dual Planet (Australia), 1982. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Seedy synth soundtrack genius from the early 80s! Turkey Shoot is a pretty notorious slice of early 80s Oz-sploitation cinema – and composer Brian May makes it all the more memorable with his soundtrack work here. It got some brief percussion and strings-heavy bits, but it's main style is eerie, brooding analog synth sounds by May – who is probably best known for his soundtracks to the first two Mad Max movies – and works quite nicely here in style that reminds us a bit of John Carpenter in the late 70s and early 80s. Includes "Turkey Shoot Theme", "Suitable Targets", "Nightfall", "Tractor Pursuit", "Cut Him Down To Size", "Hot & Ready", "Swamp Escape/Beach Fight", "Don't Worry My Dear, He Has Already Eaten", "Crossbow Standoff", "Shrunken Heads", "All Deviants Report To Centre Compound" and more.

Kamuran AkkorKamuran Akkor ... CD
Pharaway Sounds (Spain), Early 70s. New Copy ... $16.99
One of the coolest Turkish singers we've heard so far from the 70s – an artist who's maybe a bit more funky and a bit less fuzzy than some of her contemporaries – blessed with a heavenly vocal style that's often set to these very groovy arrangements! The language is beyond the reach of our comprehension, but there's a quality to the overall tunes we totally love – very much like some of the coolest, grooviest French or Scandinavian pop of the time – thanks to some very well-placed electric bass, sweet soaring strings, and the occasional Turkish touch to make for a nicely exotic vibe. A few cuts also feature some nice moog, too – which is especially wonderful, and gives things a really spacey quality – and titles include "Yorgun Gozler", "Falci", "Kabahat Seni Sevende", "Dane Dane Benleri", and "Evet Mi Hayir Mi".

Dorothy AshbyDorothy Ashby ... LP
Argo, 1961. Very Good ... $79.99
Although Dorothy Ashby cut a number of funky groovy records for the Cadet/Argo label at the end of the 60s, this was her first early effort for the label – and it's a much straighter album of jazz, although still quite nice. The setting is one of the sparest for Dorothy's early records – and it features backing only by Herman Wright on bass and John Tooley on drums. Ashby's jazz harp dominates the set, and she comes up with loads of haunting melodies on tracks like "Booze", "Lonely Melody", "John R", "Gloomy Sunday", and "Lil Darlin". LP, Vinyl record album

Ataraxia (Mort Garson)Unexplained – Electronic Musical Impressions of the Occult ... LP
RCA/Fifth Dimension (Germany), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
One of the spookiest albums we've ever heard from moog maestro Mort Garson – way darker and more complex than his Wozzard Of Id or moogy horoscope projects – with a feel that's much more like his legendary Black Mass album! Like that one, there's a fair current of supernatural running through the mix – an early use of the electronics to explore the darker corners of reality, served up with lots of cool 70s occult touches – in a way that's oddly more timeless than some of the later projects of this nature from the industrial generation. Garson's range of tones is wonderful – from fuzzy bassy bits, to sparkling keyboard lines, to lots of spacey sounds in between – and titles include "I Ching", "Tarot", "Deja Vu", "Seance", "Sorcerer", and "Astral Projection".

Atlantic, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
A wicked album of Latin Soul tunes – recorded by Harvey Averne, one of the heaviest hitting producers of the New York scene of the late 60s! The album's one of the few that Harvey issued under his own name, and it features him on piano and vibes, working with arrangements by Marty Sheller, and a tight batch of studio players who cook up the grooves in a classic Fania/Tico style! The album's got some very groovy originals – like "The Micro Mini", "You're No Good", "My Dream", and "You Mess My Mind Up" – plus some sweet little covers, like "The Think Drink Theme", "The Word", and "Wishing & Hoping" – all of which come off like some of Willie Bobo's best work of the time!

David AxelrodAuction ... LP
Decca, 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $9.99
One of David Axelrod's oddest records, but still a darn great one! The whole album is sort of a concept album about slavery (hence the title "The Auction"), and it has some spiritual political vocals on a number of tracks – but underneath is the usual great funky instrumentation of David Axelrod, with lots of nice deep grooves that kick the otherwise snoozy lyrics into another level. The whole thing's got a feel that's sort of like the 24 Carat Black record, with a deep soulful groove. Titles include "The Auction", "Oh! Freedom", "The Debt", "Freedom", "Sympathy", "Leading Citizen", and "Be Proud, My Race!". LP, Vinyl record album

Chet BakerChet Baker Sextet ... CD
Pacific Jazz, 1954/1957. Used ... $8.99
A real lost treasure from Chet Baker – an obscure sextet session, originally issued only as a 10" LP! The record features Chet's trumpet in a frontline with Bob Brookmeyer on valve trombone and Bud Shank on baritone sax – working through a set of cool modern arrangements by Jack Montrose, Johnny Mandel, and Bill Holman – in a mellow west coast take on the chamber jazz sound of the 50s. The pairing of horns is great, and makes for some evocative changes and tonal colors – on a set list that includes the tracks "Little Man You've Had A Busy Day", "Dot's Groovy", "The Half Dozens", and "Stella By Starlight". Added to these tracks is a similar session from a few years later – one that's arranged by Bob Zieff and which features Chet in an unusual lineup that includes French horn, bass clarinet, cello, and bassoon! These tracks are really wonderful – very moody and evocative, almost in a late 50s dramatic soundtrack mode. Titles include "Ponder", "A Minor Benign", and "Twenties Late". CD

A great meeting between jazz piano legend Kenny Barron and the younger, brillant vibes player Mark Sherman – Barron being a veteran of top notch duo settings, and Sherman newer to it – but Sherman succeeds here mightily! Interplay couldn't be a more fitting title, as the pair are perfectly simpatico – working together on a range of material and a lone Barron original, it's wonderful from track-to-track – feeling like one of the coziest, strongest latenight jazz club sessions you'd ever be lucky enough to see. Includes nice takes on the tried-and-true "Afternoon In Paris", "Dear Old Stockholm" and "Indian Summer", the Barron composed waltz "Venture Within", Dexter Gordon's "Cheese Cake", the Charles Mingus gem "Orange Was The Color Of Her Dress, Then Blue Silk", "Polka Dots And Moonbeams", "Without A Song" and more.

Jewel Bass/Dorothy MooreMalaco Soul Sisters ... CD
Malaco/Soulscape (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... $13.99 19.99
Incredible material from a pair of underappreciated queens of Mississippi soul – 70s Malaco material from Jewel Bass and Dorothy Moore – together on this excellent compilation from Soulscape! Jewel Bass started as a session singer in her teen years, and recorded precious little material as a solo star, making these Malaco singles all the more precious! She pulls off a number of styles on a dozen tracks here equally well, from soaringly soulful ballads to funkier numbers, raw groovers to more polished gems. In contrast, Dorothy Moore made a bigger impact sales wise in the mid 70s, but still overlooked by history – and she's another versatile singer who could pull of perfect female southern soul with big choruses and achingly soulful melodies, tearful ballads, and more uptempo numbers. Jewel Bass songs include "All Good Things Must Come To An End", "Sugar Britches", "Let Your Love Rain Down On Me", "It's Been A Long Time Coming", "Seeing You Again", "I'm Worried" and more. Dorothy Moore tracks include "See How They've Done My Love", "Same Old Feeling", "Cry Like A Baby", "Two Of A Kind", "I Know", "Diamonds" and more. 21 tracks in all, plus a cool unlisted track with Dorothy Moore plugging the US Navy, with her hit "Misty Blue" in the background!

There's really no going wrong with Movie Scenes. Madlib's beats on both volumes are short, and instantly nail the groove – moving into the next one just as soon as the scene is set.

Jorge BenBen (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Philips/Dusty Groove, 1972. New Copy ... $11.99 18.98
A stunner of a record from the mighty Jorge Ben – and a record that catapulted the Brazilian singer to international fame at the time! Ben had already been making magic for almost a decade down in Brazil – and his compositions and grooves left an undeniable impact on the scene in the post-bossa years – but this album has Jorge really emerging as the global soul star he was destined to be – from his powerful stare on the cover, right down to the grit in the grooves! The sound here is a refinement of the samba soul mode that Ben had been brewing up from the late 60s onward – a skittish mix of older samba elements, American soul, and some slight fuller production that really comes into its own here – mixing all the acoustic elements at the core with just a slight electric flourish, but never losing its edge in the process – all to provide Jorge with a sublime backdrop for his really amazing vocals. The set's a monument in funky Brazilian soul – and it includes the huge hit "Taj Mahal", which still sounds great, even after all these years – plus loads of other gems that include "O Circo Chegou", "Domingo 23", "Fio Maravilha", "Paz E Arroz", "Morre O Burro Fico O Homem", and "Que Nega E Essa". A gem all the way through – and a record we'd never part with! CD

Chap Chap/Universal (Japan), 1995. New Copy ... $23.99
A pair of percussionists, working here together wonderfully – in a set that has both musicians using the drum kit and other percussion – and Han Bennink picking up a bit of piano as well! We've always loved Bennink's highly melodic approach – a style that seems to get notes out of things that shouldn't normally feel so tuneful – and his method makes for surprising moments of music amidst the freedom, which really seem to be echoed by Sabu as well! The set begins with one long solo from Han – on drums, percussion, and piano – which is then followed by this beautifully bold solo from Sabu – and the pair come together on the last track, with a really magical feel of synchronicity. Titles include "Han's Solo", "Sabu's Solo", and "Dadakko". CD
