VariousNigeria 70 Vol 3 – Sweet Times –Afro Funk, Highlife, & Juju From 70s Lagos (with bonus CD) ... LP
Strut (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... About August 19, 2016
Sweet Times, indeed – Strut Records returns for another truly great volume in their Nigeria 70 series – this one covering the highlife, juju and Afro Funk music of Lagos in the 1970s – stellar material that has never been issued outside of Nigeria before now! There's a pretty diverse cross section of the sounds coming from the region at the time – from upbeat funky Afro Soul to psych-infused guitar and percussion jams, jazzier instrumentation and impassioned vocals – most crucially, fusions of jazz, funk, soul, juju and highlife. Wonderful, wonderful material that stands proudly with the other great entries in the series. Includes "Life" by Moneyman And The Super 5 International, ""Ire" by The Don Isaac Ezekiel Combination, "Unity In Africa" by Eji Oyewole, "Idegbani" by Zeal Onyia & His Music, "Viva Disco (Instrumental)" by Tunde Mabadu, "E Ma S'Eka" by Bola Johnson & His Easy Life Top Beats, "Ajoyio" by Chief Commander Ebenezer Obey & His International Brothers and more.

✨✧ Black CrowesThree Snakes One Charm (180 gram pressing) ... LP
American, 1990. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A mid career gem from the Black Crowes – a bit more akin to Amorica in style then their earlier or later records, but not as densely layered – and with overall excellence really kind of sneaks up on you! The songs often start like loose, midtempo southern rock with a touch of soul but then a catchy chorus will kick in seemingly out of nowhere and take it somewhere else entirely.. This was a band with passionate love of some of the best 60s & 70s rock ever recorded, and the rare skill to sound like they should've been there but somehow missed a turn and wound up in the 1990s. Such good stuff! Titles includes "Under A Mountain", "Nebakanezer", "Blackberry", "Good Friday", "Let Me Share The Ride", "Bring On, Bring On", "Evil Eye", "Just Say You're Sorry", "Pimper's Paradise", "How Much For Your Wings", "Better When You're Not Alone" and "One Mirror Too Many".

✨✧ Joe HendersonOur Thing ... LP
Blue Note, 1963. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A classic straight session by Joe Henderson – cut during his early years, when he was breaking out of the box with a heck of a lot of fire! Kenny Dorham's subdued lyricism complements Joe's impassioned playing over the angular, yet still-swinging rythm section of Andrew Hill, Eddie Kahn and Pete La Roca. The track "Pedro's Time" reflects Joe's fascination with Latin-flavored pieces (as evidenced by Joe's previous effort Page One, and his work on Dorham's Una Mas), while pieces like "Teeter Totter", "Our Thing" and "Back Road" play with time and structure in subtle ways.

✨✧ Jimi Hendrix ExperienceElectric Ladyland ... LP
Reprise, 1968. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A true classic by Jimi with the original Experience lineup – the third of three straight up masterpiece LPs to comeout in just over a year's time by the group! You could call the leftfield astral effects in the mix experimental if you had to – innovations in the studio with echo, that hallucinatory backwards sound effect and other stranger bits – but the passionate, naturally expressive playing and singing by Jimi makes it all fell just right, and the Noel Redding and Mitch Mitchell still don't get enough credit for being at the heart of such greatness. A massive 2LP effort that include s"Voodoo Chile", "Crosstown Traffic", "Electric Ladyland", "Little Miss Strange", "Moon Turn The Tides", "Still Raining Still Dreaming" and "All Along The Watchtower". LP, Vinyl record album
(Orange & tan label pressing. Cover has light ringwear.)

✨✧ Lou ReedRock N Roll Animal ... LP
RCA, 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Lou Reed at his mid 70s live peak! Volumes have already been and will continue to be written about Lou's output in the 70s, and rightly so. This set is particularly amazing in that it follows the artful highpoint/financial failure that is Berlin – so Lou is doing the rock & roll star thing here, kinda given the people what they want in a way. What's so amazing here is that it doesn't feel like a cash-in, it's crazy good and geniunely passionate stuff! The blazing guitars don't hurt, nor does the fact the the set is heavy with Velvets-era faves. Includes "Intro/Sweet Jane", "Heroin", "White Light/White Heat", "Lady Day" and "Rock N' Roll". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label Best Buy pressing. Cover is wrinkled from moisture on the bottom 2 inches, with some flaking on front, and unglued bottom seam.)

✨✧ Patti SmithEaster ... LP
Arista, 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Among the best of the best of early Patti Smith albums – the Easter LP from 1978 – also her biggest hit ever! Easter splits the difference between accessible, if rawly impassioned rock & roll and more raucous and in yer face rebellious poetry. There's a stylistic gulf between the more delicate songs and the rawer ones, and that tension makes for a more amazing record overall. Titles include "Till Victory", "Space Monkey", "Because The Night", "Ghost Dance", "Privelege (Set Me Free)", "We Three", "25th Floor", "Easter" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Tabou ComboRespect (plus download) ... LP
Secret Stash, 1973. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Driving rhythms, heavy percussion, funk and psychedelia filtered through native Haitian and more Caribbean-inflected music - the great Respect LP by the Tabou Combo de Petion-Ville! The handful of records we've been lucky enough to hear over the years by the group have all been exceptional – and this may very well be the best of them! The dexterity of the musicians – the exciting percussion backdrop and these spindly, swirling and hypnotic electric guitars are especially impressive – but everything's really, really great. There are impassioned lead vocals and sweet group backup, some accordion and more instrumentation – with songs that balance moving melodies with some surprisingly tripped out bits of echo and other atmospherics. Titles include "Respect", "Minouche", "Maria", "Alle Lave", "Ti Gran Mou'n", "Bebe Paramount", "Plus Pres De Toi" and "Compas Popcorn". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Lucky ThompsonLucky Is Back (Then, So Is Love) ... LP
Rivoli, 1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A rare and sublime set from Lucky Thompson – recorded at a real turning point in his career! The title refers to the fact that Lucky's working back on American shores after some extended time in Europe – and that fact is nicely hammered home by the cover image, which has Lucky standing on the docks in New York, next to a ship marked "France"! And it's funny, because somewhere in that journey home, Lucky picked up a whole new set of influences – trading the tighter swing-based sound of his classic recordings for a freer, more exploratory style – one that clearly has a bit of inspiration from Coltrane, but which is handled by Lucky in his own unique phrasing and tone. Thompson's playing a fair bit of soprano sax on the record, as well as some of his more traditional tenor – and the group's a beautifully understated quartet, with Tommy Flanagan on piano, Willie Ruff on bass, and Walter Perkins on drums. Titles include "Evil Eva", "Slow Dough", "On Tippy Top", "Passionately Yours", and "Love". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has a Stereo sticker.)

✨✧ John ColtraneMeditations ... CD
Impulse, 1966. Used ... Out Of Stock
An album that's quite different than you might expect from the title – one of the most adventurous records issued on Impulse during the life of John Coltrane! The tracks here are all quite free and far-reaching – hardly the mellow "meditations you might expect – and more the new unbridled sense of energy that Trane was letting loose in the post-Love Supreme years. The group here features some tremendous tenor from Pharoah Sanders – joining the core lineup of McCoy Tyner on piano, Jimmy Garrison on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums – who himself is inspired to new heights by the addition of Rashied Ali as a second drummer. The work has a searing emotive quality that goes beyond most that Coltrane had recorded before this point – and titles include the classic "The Father The Son & The Holy Ghost", plus "Love", "Consequences", "Serenity", and "Compassion".

✨✧ Shin Joong Hyun & OthersBeautiful Rivers And Mountains – The Psychedelic Rock Sound Of South Korea's Shin Joong Hyun 1958 to 1974 ... LP
Light In The Attic, Late 50s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LPs ... Out Of Stock
An amazing, career-spanning compilation of pioneering psych and earlier material, mixed with more traditional elements of Korean music by Shin Joong Hyun – including his own numbers, great songs with his combos over the years and tunes he wrote for others to sing – from the late 50s to the early 70s! The stylistic breadth is pretty wide, but what's so impressive is that he's not merely traipsing through genres to stay current – he's a real master, and the consistently great quality throughout is a real thing to behold. It's passionate and soulful as all get out, whether it's a spare bit of rock or folk, raw and rumbling psych folk or garage-y stormers. One of the best global psych comps we've seen in a while! Includes "Moon Watching", "J Blues '72" and "I've Got Nothing To Say" (credited to Shin Joong Hyun), "Please Don't Bother Me Anymore" by Golden Grapes, "The Sun" by Kim Jung Mi, "Tomorrow" by lee Jung Hwa, "Spring Rain" by Park In Soo, "Sunset" by Jang Hyun, "Why That Person" by Bunny Girls, "Beautiful Rivers And Mountains" by Shin Joong Hyun & The Men and more.

✨✧ Billy MitchellThis Is Billy Mitchell ... CD
Smash/Verve, 1962. Used ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful album by one of the most underrated tenor talents of the 60's! Billy Mitchell was one of the strongest talents to come out of the ultra-hip Detroit scene of the 50s – but his work was often buried in larger group albums by the Count Basie band, or by Basie-related players – like Frank Foster and Al Grey. This album's one of the few that Billy ever got to record on his own – and it's a lean, mean, stripped-down session – recorded with a very hip lineup. Bobby Hutcherson makes a surprising appearance in the group – playing vibes alongside Mitchell's deeply soulful tenor – and the rest of the group includes some guest trumpet work by Dave Burns, organ by Clarence Sleepy Anderson, and piano by Billy Wallace. The whole thing's got a laidback and easily grooving soul jazz sound – similar to work on Prestige of the time, but more open, with less of a formulaic approach – and a really unique blend of styles on a few numbers. Titles include "Tamba", "J&B", "Passionova", "Siam", and "Automation". CD

✨✧ San Sebastian Strings/Rod McKuen/Anita KerrSea/Earth/Sky (3CD set) ... CD
Warner/El (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 3 CDs ... Out Of Stock
An incredible trio of records from an incredible studio trio – poet Rod McKuen, arranger Anita Kerr, and her excellent San Sebastian Strings! The artists came together on a run of very successful albums for Warner Brothers in the late 60s – but this sweet little set may well be their ultimate package – a trio of differently-themed records, all based around topical poetry by McKuen – recited either by Rod himself, or by narrators Jesse Pearson or Gene Merlino on some of the records – all at a level that's got this really weird and wonderful late 60s sort of masculine vibe – a post-Sinatra, pre-hippie quality – too old for the younger generation, but more than open about the desires and passions that drive them – as well as the disappointments and melancholy that visit along the way. Kerr's arrangements are beautiful – very different than her Nashville work, and with a mature soundtrack sort of presence – really filling the words with the right sort of musical moods. Special box presents all three albums as they were in the original LP box set – complete with album cover art, and a replica of the original booklet! CD

✨✧ VariousThose Shocking Shaking Days – Indonesian Hard Psychedelic Progressive Rock & Funk 1970 to 1978 (with download) ... LP
Now Again, 1970s. New Copy 3 LPs ... Out Of Stock
A truly incredible overview of 70s Indonesian funk, rock and psychedelia infused recordings – and it's beautifully put together, to boot – one of the very best compilations yet from Stones Throw's Now Again branch! There's an undercurrent of funk to most of this material, but it's always topped off with prog & psych rhythmic heaviness and dexterity, and usually done with passionate, feverish vocals. The story of Indonesian underground music of the time is a complicated one, and one that's been hard to come by outside of the region, given the difficult political circumstances of the time. This amazing set does a tremendous service for this music. Essential! Includes "Haai" by Panbers, "Anti Gandja" by The Brims, "Bad News" by Rollies, "People" by Super Kid", "Evil War" by Shark Move, "Shake Me" by Aja, "The Promise" by Rhythm Kids, "Uang" by Duo Kribo, "Pantun Lama" by Murry Lama, "Hear Me" by Golden Wing, "Candle Light" by Beny Soebardja And Lizard and more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ DVDHaack – The King Of Techno (DVD) ... DVD
Koch, 2003. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A documentary portrait of musical surrealist Bruce Haack – an artist better known for his leftfield children's music, and hailed here as the King Of Techno – but really an adventurous eccentric musical pioneer who's finally being rewarded his just props! This film, by Philip Anagnos, is done up passionately – with suitably freaky animation, archival footage, and interviews with devotees Mouse On Mars, Money Mark and others! Feature is 70 minutes, in color and black & white. DVD extras include the director's featurette at the Slamdance Film Festival, additional footage and a radio interview. DVD
(There is no indication, but we are assuming this is an NTSC format, Region 1 DVD.)

✨✧ Pete RockPetestrumentals 2 ... CD
Mello Music Group, 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The incredibly long awaited follow up to Petestrumentals, from legendary producer Pete Rock – and he's as fresh as ever! PR's style was never predicated on current fashion, and was always rooted in a love for both classic and obscure jazz and funk, music that also driven our own musical passions, and always will. It's hard-to-believe the first Petestrumentals came out all the way back in 2001, but it's no surprise at all that Pete Rock is still so strongly on point nearly 15 years later! Includes "Heaven & Earth", "PR 4 Prez", "Cosmic Slop", "On & On", "My My Baby", "One, Two, A Few More", "Clap Ya Hands (I Feel Good)", "Air Smoove", "Gonna Love You", "90s Class Act", "Make Me Feel Like", "BB Jones", "Dilla Bounce (RIP)", Accelerate", "You Know Dat", "Gonna Love You" and more. 20 tracks in all!
