✨✧ Francoise HardyFrancoise Hardy (Le Premiere Bonheur Du Jour) ... CD
Vogue/Light In The Attic, 1963. 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. 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".

✨✧ Joe HendersonOur Thing ... LP
Blue Note, 1963. Used ... 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. LP, Vinyl record album
(New York mono pressing with Van Gelder stamp. Cover has light wear and a name in pen on the back.)

✨✧ Hank JonesDefinitive Black & Blues Series – Compassion ... CD
Black & Blue (France), 1978. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sublime trio material from Hank Jones – an overlooked 70s date recorded for the Black & Blue label in France, and a perfect example of his unique phrasing on the piano! There's almost a bell-like quality to the way that Jones' notes ring out on the set – clear, clean, but also very creative – not just well-crafted piano material with a too-formal sound, but still very personal in the way that he puts things together. It's almost as if Hank's linking together a few generations of jazz expression with his own personal history – able to shift as easily as he swings, especially in the company of George Duvivier on bass, and Alan Dawson on drums. Titles include "Allan's Allies", "Hank's Blues", 'Yours Is My Heart Alone", "Compassion", and "Come To Me". CD also features four unreleased bonus alternate takes! 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

✨✧ Kourosh YaghmaeiBack From The Brink – Pre-Revolution Psychedelic Rock From Iran – 1973 to 1979 (3LP set) ... LP
Now Again, 1970s. New Copy 3LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Melodic psychedelia from 70s Iran – an incredible full scale anthology of recordings by guitarist and vocalist Kourosh Yaghmaei from the pre-revolution years – and an absolute treasure! Kouroush often recorded with his brothers – Kourosh singing lead and playing guitars or bass – with Kamran Yaghmaei on guitars and backing vocals and Kambiz Yaghmaei on keys and backing vocals. Other players contribute drums, bass and occasional additional elements – harmonica or horns on few tracks. The sound is a really wonderful amalgam of western garage, psych and strains of funk with native Iranian modes and tempos. The songs here sink in on an emotional level without us knowing a word of the language – the passionate vocals work wonderfully in that regard – but musically, it's innovative stuff that's nicely tripped out and heavily rhythmic, without compromising the melodic sensibility. The heavy duty 3LP set features 21 tracks in all – in a sweet 6 panel gatefold with a 24 page booklet – featuring extensive notes and photos, with Kourosh's story told in autobiographical detail. Like other recent Now Again packages, it's really beautifully done! Titles include "Gol E Yakh", "Dar Enteha", "Paiz", "Leila", "Del Dareh Pir Misheh", "Shirin Joon", "Ghazal", "Mosafere Shahre Baran", "Saghe", "Niyayesh", "Saraabe Toe", "Baroona", "Khaar", Bachehaye Khoobe Koocheh" and more.

✨✧ VariousShitala Vol 2 – More Indian Disco Funk Thrillers ... CD
Music India, 1970s/2011. Used ... Out Of Stock
A second volume of action funk from India – gritty, raw cinematic funk with some grander strains of the sound with bigger orchestrations, though still rooted in a soundtracky style – mixed masterfully by DJ Smokestack! This follow up to the original Shitala is once again mix material culled from a treasure trove of 70s & 80s Bollywood cinema soundscapes – an hour long trip that's anchored by funky beats, but with diverse sounds – lots of sitar, impassioned vocals, rumbling percussion and more. No tracklist on this one, but it's a mix of 25 tracks. CD

✨✧ 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!

✨✧ Black CrowesThree Snakes One Charm (180 gram pressing) ... LP
American, 1990. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... 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".

✨✧ Tabou ComboRespect (plus download) ... LP
Secret Stash, 1973. New Copy ... 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

✨✧ VariousBest Of Wally O Productions ... CD
Philly Archives, Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Hard Philly soul from the hands of Wally O – aka Wally Osborne, one of the the best independent producers working in Philly during the late 60s. This set of 22 tracks digs through some of Wally's best work – mostly male group sides, done in a mixture of styles that includes uptempo groovers and sweet harmony ballads – and all either issued as rare singles on labels like Toxsan or Womar, or never issued at all, and appearing for the first time on this CD. The harmony tracks are incredible – the kind of late night slow tracks that always send us scrambling for the liner notes to see who's blowing our mind – and overall, the quality of work on this CD matches the best of any of our other sweet soul or harmony classic titles. Tracks include "Dear One", "A Nicer Girl", and "Tears Tell The Story" by The Topics; "I'm So Glad", "Tell Me So", and "I Found True Love" by Herb Johnson & The Impacts; "Kisses & Roses" and "When I'm With You" by The Four Thoughts; "You Can't Have Your Cake" and "I Wish I Knew" by Bobby Holland; "Without You Babe" and "Cold Cold Love" by Jeri & Joe; "Cement Plaster & Gold" by The Natural Soul Brothers; "It Wasn't A Lie" by Topaz; and "My Life Depends On You" by The Passionettes.

Far Out (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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! This third set features gems by Dalmo Castello, Bossa Trio, Luiz Carlos Sa, Kazinho and more – from a wider span of material, with recordings ranging from the early 60s up until around 1970, bossa and samba jazz heavy numbers, some quite soaring and others with more rumbling Afro rhythms. It's groovy material, but passionate and often political – deep stuff, and including some numbers we've never heard before, which is always an exciting thing around here! Titles include "Fora De Hora" by Dalmo Castello, "Voce Que Nao Vem" by O Trangulo, "Copa 70" Brasil 40 Graus, "Tema Em Do" by Bossa Trio and more.

✨✧ Charles JacksonPassionate Breezes ... LP
Capitol, 1978. Used ... Out Of Stock
A smoking solo debut from Chicago's Charles Jackson – a hell of a great singer, songwriter, and producer – who'd already had great fame in the Independents, and was working hard at Capitol records with Marvin Yancey to help shape the early years of Natalie Cole! During that time, Jackson stepped into the studio, and really stunned us with this sublime set of his own – a wonderfully mature batch of soul tunes that really reflects the great changes for male singers in the 70s – a mode that was particularly helped along by Windy City contemporaries Jerry Butler and Walter Jackson. Yet Charles has a warmth here that's all his own – gently stepping along grooves arranged by Mark Davis and Gene Barge – the latter of whom helped co-produce the record with Yancey. Yancey also wrote most of the cuts with Jackson – and titles include "Love Of You", "I Really Want You", "The Train", "Get On Down", "Passionate Breezes", and a remake of "Ooh Child".

✨✧ Pete RockPetestrumentals 2 (with download) ... LP
Mello Music Group, 2015. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... 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!

✨✧ ReplacementsTwin Tone Years (4LP box set) ... LP
Twin Tone/Warner, Early/Mid 80s. New Copy 4LP ... Out Of Stock
The first 4 records by The Replacements – the underrated Sorry Ma, Forgot The Take Out The Trash and Stink, plus the classics Hootenanny and Let It Be – recorded for Twin Tone in the first half of the 80s, and compiled here in a handsome 4LP box set! Early in their run, on the first 2 LPs in this set, they're almost hiding their love for sloppy, passionate rock & roll in more of a caterwauling post punk mode, they really start to branch out a bit on Hootenanny, then reach an inarguable peak on Let It Be. It's great to have these records in a box set, as it chronicles one of most fascinating maturation processes of any rock band in the 1980s – on top of each record being total blast on its own! LP, Vinyl record album
(Numbered limited edition.)
