✨✧ Francoise HardyFrancoise Hardy (Le Premiere Bonheur Du Jour) (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Vogue/Light In The Attic, 1963. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... 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. There's a beautifully gentle feel to the record – even though the set features some larger arrangements from Marcel Hendrix – and 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
(No 2 in the Francoise Hardy Archive Series!)

✨✧ Gordon Parks/Ralph EllisonInvisible Man – Gordon Parks & Ralph Ellison In Harlem (hardcover) ... Book
Steidl (Germany), 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful book that brings together two different collaborations between these two key figures in postwar African-American culture – writings by Ralph Ellison, with supporting photographs from Gordon Parks – the award-winning journalist who also went onto a much larger role in film and music during the 70s! This material captures both individuals when their ideas were the freshest – Ellison was writing Invisible man during the first project here, and the collaborations deal sharply with the inequality between black and white culture in America, as seen through the lens of Harlem in the postwar years. Parks' photos are amazing – sometimes journalistic, almost with an unflinching sort of Wee Gee stare – other times much more compassionate, really hinting at some of his greatness to come – and the book also features supporting material from proof sheets and manuscripts – presenting both projects as they were originally intended, but also giving them a lot of background as well. 166 pages, oversized, hardcover, and with many well-printed black and white images.

✨✧ VariousBlack Man's Cry – The Inspiration Of Fela Kuti (with download) ... LP

Covers and music inspired by the towering figure in Afrofunk – the great Fela Kuti – rare 70s material a few modern cuts recorded in Nigeria, Trinidad, Ghana, Colombia, Germany and America – some previously unreleased, and all wonderful representations of the far-reaching influence of Fela!

✨✧ Jimi Hendrix ExperienceElectric Ladyland ... CD
MCA, 1968. Used ... 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".

✨✧ RodriguezComing From Reality (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Sussex/Light In The Attic, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
An amazing second set from Sixto Rodriguez – recorded in the legendary Landsdowne Studios in London, with a groove that's a great extension from his debut! All of Rodriguez's best elements are in place here – his folksy guitar, personal lyrical style, and surprisingly biting approach to a variety of topics – and the London setting provides him with an even more sophisticated backdrop than before, one that creates a rich palette of sounds that takes the music in some really wonderful directions! There's a bit of strings at times, but most instrumentation is by a small combo – which includes Chris Spedding on guitar and Tony Carr on percussion – so that Rodriguez's vocals and guitar are really right up front in the mix, recorded with a brilliant balance between sharpness and compassion. Titles include "Climb Up On My Music", "Silver Words", "Heikki's Suburbia Bus Tour", "I Think Of You", "To Whom It May Concern", "Halfway Up The Stairs", and "Cause". LP, Vinyl record album
