VariousBlack Man's Cry – The Inspiration Of Fela Kuti (with download) ... LP
Now Again, 1970s/1990s. New Copy 2LP ... On December 4, 2015
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! A few tunes are solid takes of the Nigerian funk groove proper – but others carry the sound into cumbia, steel band and western funk styles – all of it exciting, hugely passionate and floor-shaking! Titles include "Shacalao" by Cumbia Moderna De Soledad, "Woman Pin Down" by Dan Snatch And His Atomic 8 Dance Band, "Never Trust A Woman" by Bola Johnson, "Black Man's Cry" by Mosco Tiles Fonclaire Steel Orchestra, "Egbi/Black Man's Cry (Medley)" by Lever Brothers Gay Flamingos, "Comencemos" by Phirpo Y Sus Caribes, "Up Side Down" by Daktaris, "Lullaby For Lagos" by Whitefield Brothers and more.

✨✧ BandIslands ... LP
Capitol, 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A truly underappreciated later album from The Band, made after they decided to hang it up as a touring act – one that holds up SO much better than it's given credit for, by thier die hard fans and even The Band itself – but it works for us! The Band's most legendary first couple of records were the product of a longtime road tested group of deeply invested craftsmen, working together in a beautifully intuitive way. By this point, they are well known to have been looking for an exit strategy – and while Islands is a strong batch of songs, masterfully played and soulfully sung – it's genuine charms get lost in the lore. It's a breezier, easier going affair than their more rawly passionate records, but it's an overlooked gem. Includes "Right As Rain", "Street Walker", "Ain't That A Lot Of Love", "Islands", "The Saga Of Pepote Rouge", "Knockin' Lost John", "Living In A Dream" and their sweet little take on "Georgia On My Mind", with Richard Manuel on lead vocals for a change, given this beauty of a pop standard a gruff edge that works wonderfully well.

✨✧ John ColtraneMeditations ... CD
Impulse, 1966. Used ... Temporarily 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".

✨✧ Paco De LuciaFuente Y Caudal ... LP
Philips (Spain), 1973. Used ... Temporarily 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".

✨✧ DellsI Touched A Dream ... LP
20th Century, 1980. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One thing about The Dells: They were always great! Even here, at the end of the 70s, in settings that are less perfect than their classic work for Cadet or Vee Jay, the group still sound wonderful – more daring vocally than most other harmony groups at the time, cutting through some smoother arrangements with a sublime approach to the material that's all-soul all the way! Arrangements get a bit uptempo and modern, but they're still in a strong Chicago groove – with backings by Tom Tom 84 and Sonny Sanders, and production by Carl Davis and Eugene Record, making for a late 70s update of the classic Brunswick soul approach. Titles include "Look At Us Now", "All About The Paper", "So You Are Love", "Passionate Breezes", and "I Touched A Dream". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bill EvansRe: Person I Knew ... CD
Fantasy/OJC, 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Incredibly lovely live work from Bill Evans – material done at the Village Vanguard in the mid 70s, and easily one of his standout performance sessions from the time! There's a confidence here that doesn't show up in every Evans date of this nature – a focused, fluid groove that's really wonderful – spun out in ways that are still quite gentle, but extremely passionate – by a trio that also features Eddie Gomez on bass and Marty Morell on drums. Titles include a great reading of the title cut, "Re: Person I Knew" – plus "Alfie", "Sugar Plum", "TTT", "34 Skidoo", and "Are You All The Things". CD

✨✧ Group DouehBeatte Harab (limited edition vinyl) ... LP
Sublime Frequencies, 2010. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A Saharan stunner – hypnotic music from longtime Saharoui music masters Group Doueh – mixing traditional Moorish instruments with modern guitar and synth with transcendent beauty! It's the third set of music by the group we've seen from the great Sublime Frequencies label, and it's definitely the the cleanest sounding, but there's nothing here approaching gloss or convention, it's raw, emotionally resonant music that's probably their best on record. The instrumentation includes the tinidit (a 3-string lute), the ardin (a kora-like harp), the tbal (a clay drum) and kass (tea glasses) along with guitar and Korg synthesizer – and uber-passionate vocals. Honestly, every time we hear a Sublime Frequencies release we wonder if it's the best one yet, and Beatte Harab is another on that superior level! Includes "Kar Wazan Abyad", "Mawal Lakhaal", "Badbada", "Beatte Harab", "Waydana", "Yadanat Lamayma", "Kar Labyad Doueh" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Michael HurleyParsnip Snips ... LP
Bellemeade Phonics/Mississippi, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Some strange and others straight and impassioned, all spare guitar and a vocal tunes from outsider folk genius Michael Hurley – material recorded between 1965 and 1972. From homespun strummed numbers, to more eccentric freakouts (re: "Big Black Crow"), it's essential Hurley as far as we're concerned! Titles include "You're A Dog; Don't Talk To Me", "Hoot Owls", "Give Me The Cure", "New Tea", "Don't Blame It On Me", "Parsnip Snips", "Runaway", "The Time Is Right", "Abominable Snowman", "US Space Weevils" and more.

✨✧ NovalimaKarimba ... CD
ESL, 2012. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The third proper album from Novalima – proudly repping the ESL label once again with strong set inspired by earthy Afro-Peruvian earthy tradition, though played with modern clarity and club ready urgency. Traditionally minded music fused with modernist sounds and sensibilities isn't always an easy thing to pull off – but Novalima does it just right, no surprise really, given that ESL is one of finest labels out there for like-minded artist. Cajon, bongos, congas, cajita and batajones in the mix with guitar, bass, synth, keys and programming – seamlessly blended – and driven home by passionate male and female vocals. Includes "Festejo", "Mamaye", "Diablo", "Revolucion", "Guayabo", "Luna Ciega", "Hotel BCN", "Zarambe", "Karimba", "A Panar Algodon". CD

✨✧ Lou ReedRock N Roll Animal ... LP
RCA, 1974. Used Gatefold ... 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

✨✧ Lucinda WilliamsHappy Woman Blues ... LP
Folkways, 1980. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Lucinda Williams second album for Folkways – and the first to feature her own material – introducing one of the best Americana singer songerwriters of the past few decades! Happy Woman Blues has an apt title, and although there's plenty of heartache in her radiating from her vocal chords and in her words, it's done with passionate, unflinching confidence and charisma the brings a smile to our faces as wide as the one she's wearing in the cover photo. More of a honky tonk record than a blues record, and a great one! Essential! Titles include "Lafayette", "Lost It", "Maria", "Happy Woman Blues", "Rolling Along", "Howlin At Midnight", "Hard Road", "Louisiana Man" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ 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.

✨✧ Rene UrtregerJazzman – No 3 ... CD
Carlyne/Universal (France), 1985. Used ... Out Of Stock
A nice new issue of the great solo jazz piano set Rene Urtreger recorded for Universal France in the mid 80s. Urtreger was very well known for his tight little jazz combos of the 70s and 80s, but he really steps out with this passionate solo outing. The cuts run from driving, rollicking and fiery workouts to blue, sweet and soulful. The cuts are all Urtreger originals except for a terrific reading of JJ Johnson's "Lament", and Monk's "'Round Midnight". Other tracks include "Budomania", "Zwillinge", "Monkmania", "Jubile", Jazzman", "Jacotte", and "Onrica". 12 cuts in all, with notes in French and English. 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!
