60s bossa and samba treasures compiled by Nicola Conte – Vol 3 in the wonderful, eye-opening and ear-pleasing Viagem series on Far Out – featuring the deepest cuts of the series to date!

✨✧ Paco De LuciaPaco (aka Fuente Y Caudal) ... LP
Island, Mid 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of our favorite albums ever from the legendary Paco De Lucia – and a set that really has the guitarist coming into his own – stepping past even his rich flamenco roots, and coming up with a new style that's practically a genre unto itself! Paco's sense of imagination here is wonderful – freed up from any previous expectations, and really set loose on the strings of the guitar – coming up with an amazing blend of rhythm and melody in these fast flurries of notes – at a level that's as passionately powerful as it is breathtaking from a sheer technical perspective. Ramon De Algeciras joins Paco on two tracks, but most numbers are solo – and titles include "Fuente Y Caudal", "Entre Dos Aguas", "Plaza De San Juan", "Los Pinares", and "Cepa Andaluza".

✨✧ J DillaShining ... LP
BBE (UK), 2006. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A glorious send off from J Dilla – with some of the most soulful productions Dilla's ever laid down – and appearances by Common, D'Angelo, Pharoahe Monch, Madlib, MED, Black Thought and others! It's impossible to listen to The Shining without considering the sad circumstances surrounding its release, and all too easy to over praise, but this record is filled timelessly inventive production – and passionate rhymes from the honored guests. A lot of the more leftfield, abstract touches that create most of the character on the Donuts LP are really on the outskirts of the sound here – a much richer, deeper, funky drum influenced batch of sounds. We're speechless. There's one more official posthumous LP in the can, and thank goodness for that. Tracks include in-your-f**kin' face intro "Geek Down" with Busta Rhymes, "E=MC2" feat Common, "Love Jones", "Love" feat Pharoahe Monch, "Baby" feat Madlib & Guilty Simpson, "So Far To Go" feat Common & D'Angelo (come back D', the world needs you), "Jungle Love" feat MED & Guilty Simpson, "Dime Piece (Remix)" feat Dwele, "Love Movin'" feat Black Thought and "Won't Do".

✨✧ Lupe FiascoLasers ... CD
Warner, 2011. Used ... Out Of Stock
Lupe Fiasco proves again why he's one of the most discussed figures in hip hop on Lasers – running the show here, but with some guest spots by Skylar Grey, Trey Songz, MDMA and others. Lupe is that fascinating figure who is more likely to be heard plotting a route out of the rap game than he his plotting a takeover – and that sometimes thematically weary, but always passionate and exuberant voice is at the center here. Titles include "Words I Never Said" with Skylar Grey, "Till I Get There", "Out Of My Head" with Trey Songs, "The Show Goes On", "All Black Everything", "Coming Up" feat MDMA, "Never Forget You" with John Legend and more.

✨✧ Charles MingusOh Yeah (Jazzlore) ... LP
Atlantic, 1962. Used ... Out Of Stock
Quite a crazy little record from Charles Mingus! Mingus plays piano and sings (yes, you read that right!) in a tight sextet with Booker Ervin and Roland Kirk on reeds, and Jimmy Knepper on trombone. Mingus is trying out a kind of messed-up, blues-inspired sound here – but for some reason the tracks sort of fall short of their potential, perhaps because they're not infused with the same clarity and anger as his earlier works, or perhaps because Mingus' work on the piano just isn't as fierce as his bass playing. Still, the album's a nice one, and way better than the other Mingus piano album, on Impulse. Titles include "Oh Lord, Don't Let Them Drop That Atomic Bomb On Me", "Wham Bam Thank You Ma'am", "Devil Woman", and "Passions Of A Man". LP, Vinyl record album
(80s Jazzlore pressing.)

✨✧ VariousThai? Dai! – The Heavier Sound Of The Luk Thung Underground ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the coolest collections of underground Thai rock we've seen – and it certainly is The Heavier Sound Of the Luk Thung Underground – including a uniquely Thai vision flavored with a Black Sabbath riff, psych makeovers of Thai folklore, and a bunch great tunes that meld Bangkok life with western garage and psychedelia masterfully! All of the tunes are heavy in their own way, but it's by no means heavy in a simple hard rock way – loads of impassioned vocals, astounding percussion, tripped out guitar and other strings and woozy organ keep the arrangements exciting, and the otherworldly aspects play nice with accessible melodies. Titles include "Kuen Kuen Lueng Leung" (the aforementioned heady take on Sabbath's "Iron Man"), "Ruk Kun Samong" by Plearn Promdan, "Pai Joi" by Rung Petchburi, "Nam Mun Pang" by Sroeng Santi, "Dub Fai Kui Gun" by Sroeng Santi and more. 14 massive slabs of heavy Thai psych in all!

✨✧ Francoise HardyFrancoise Hardy (second album) (pic disc) (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Vogue/Doxy (Italy), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Really lovely sounds from the young Francoise Hardy – easily one of the coolest, most confident female singers in France at the time! Hardy is neither the emotive style of postwar passionate singers, nor the too-cool style of the left bank – and instead, she's got this way of mixing her own acoustic guitar with lightly lyrical arrangements that never overshadow her role in the lead – far less of the "yeh yeh" style that other singers were using, and which Hardy is too-often considered with. Titles include "J'Aurais Voulu", "Nous Tous", "On Dit De Lui", "Comme Tant D'Autres", "Saurai Je", "Va Pas Prendre Un Tambour", and "Le Premier Bonheur Du Jour". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousMod Jazz Forever ... CD
Kent (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Crisply-tailored, yet soulful and groovy mod jazz from the 60s – a slew of great numbers by Byrdie Green, Johnny Lytle, Mark Murphy, Reuben Wilson, The Nightbeats, The Cals, Billy Larkin, Johnny Hammond Smith, Byrdie Smith and more! Lots of great stuff here, from names synonymous to moddish jazz and others that nicely fit that mold for a bit – cats like Buddy Guy, for instance. A sweet, sweet set from the passionate compilers at Kent UK! Includes "The Real Thing" by Troy Dodds, "Finders Keepers" by Floyd White, "Rod Run" by The Reuben Wilson Quartet, "Talkin' About Love" by Tobi Lark, "Screamin'" by Jack McDuff, "Double Love" by The Cals, "Tricky Too" by Gus Jenkins, "Fever" by Buddy Guy, "Work Song" by Clint Stacy, "My Beat" by George Stone, " It's Like Love" by Mark Murphy, "The Village Caller" by The Johnny Lytle Trio and more.

✨✧ Elmer BernsteinThemes From General Electric Theater ... CD
Columbia/Intrada, 1959. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Really wonderful work from the great Elmer Bernstein – from a relatively unlikely source as well! The music here was all composed for the General Electric Theater TV show – a regular anthology program hosted by Ronald Reagan, with a shifting dramatic cast – but one that's scored by Bernstein with all the richness of his best film work of the time – orchestrations that are even more amazing when you consider they were only meant to be heard from the small speaker of a television, and usually just for one time only! The album brings together some of the best Bernstein compositions from a variety of different programs – but there's a surprisingly unified feel throughout, and titles include "Enchante", "Passionelle", "Lavender Waltz", "The Highland Lovers", "David's Love Song", "Progress", "Mariachi", and "L'Amour Tristesse".

✨✧ Michael ProphetRighteous Are The Conqueror ... LP
Greensleeves (UK), 1980. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The first of a pair of underrated efforts from Michael Prophet from the early 80s – solid, soulful material produced by Henry Junko Lawes and backed by the Roots Radics band! Warm, rumbling and melodic tunes backed by tight rhythms and resonately passionate vocals by Michael. It's a steady selection of rhythms with some surprisingly swirling sounds in the mix! Titles include "Righeous Are The Conqueror", "You Are No Good", "Long Long Tribulation", "Cassandra", "What Is The Difference", "Happy Days", "Conscious Dreadlocks", "Make Me A Romance", "Originally" and "Gypsy Woman".

✨✧ Linda RonstadtHand Sown Home Grown ... LP
Capitol, 1969. Used ... Out Of Stock
Linda's first solo record after the Stone Poneys, released in 1969, and a prime example of Linda's big, boisterous and passionate vocal style, floating over some groovy steel guitar and a more extroverted sound on the best tunes, but with some nice folkier numbers, too. It's surprising mix of moods, with lush strings and groovy organs, plus Linda's huge voice. Titles include "Baby You've Been On My Mind", "Silver Treads And Golden Needles", "Long Way Around", "I'll Be Your Baby Tonight", "The Dolphins" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label pressing. Cover has some wear.)

✨✧ VariousNigeria Special Vol 2 – Modern Highlife, Afro Sounds, & Nigerian Blues 1970 to 1976 ... CD
Soundway (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A second volume from one of our favorite compilation series of 70s African music ever – Nigeria Special Volume 2 from the rare Afrobeat treasure diggers at Soundway Records! This deeper delve into the well of hard-to-find early to mid 70s material sticks is just as wonderful – chronicling rare singles, A-sides and B-sides, as well as lesser known album tracks that wonderful fuse styles of African funk, soul & jazz, highlife and more. Heavy rhythms and passionate sounds galore, from the first half dozen years of the decade in this second, and purportedly final installment of the flagship Nigerian Special series! It's very exciting that researcher and compiler Miles Cleret puts together compilations of such top caliber material, on a level that it's mindboggling that so much has languished largely unheard for so many years! 19 tracks : "Psychedelic Baby" by Fubura Sekibo, "Shango Oba Onina" by Black's Zenith, "Omohupa" by The Otarus, "The Lord's Prayer"m by The Don Isaac Ezekiel Combination, "Jeka Subu" by Bola Johnson & His Easy Life Top Beats", "Motako" by Fidel Sax Bateke & The Voices Of Darkness and more.
