VariousNigeria 70 Vol 3 – Sweet Times – Afro Funk, Highlife, & Juju From 70s Lagos ... CD
Strut (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... $9.99 14.98
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.

VariousThai? Dai! – The Heavier Sound Of The Luk Thung Underground ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $22.99
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!

VariousWorld Ends – Afro Rock & Psychedelia In 1970s Nigeria ... CD
Soundway (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $16.99 19.98
One of the coolest collections of rare psychedelia we've heard in a while from anywhere in the world – this one focusing on Afro Rock & psych from 70s Nigeria – among the greatest releases to date on the Soundway label, which only does great work! The music has the touchstone elements of raw garage funk & rock sounds from around the globe at the time – fuzzed out guitars and organs, searing solos, hard grooving rhythms and passionate vocals. But the guitars and rhythms are uniquely African, too, with highlife and Afrobeat gestures along with the global psychedelic soul sounds. 33 tracks on 2CDs: "Nwantini/Die Die" by The Ify Jerry Krusade, "Rough Rider" by The Hygrades, "Yem Efe" by Tony Grey Super 7, "Ikoko" yb Eppi Fanio, "All Night Long" by Bongos Ikwue, "Babalawo" by The Thermometers, "Eti Ufok" by The Ceejebs, "Active Action" by The Action 13, "Onye Ije" by The Strangers, "Bullwalk" by The Comrades, "Egwu Aja" by Ofo The Black Company and more. Comes with a great booklet of notes and the always top shelf Soundway treatment in general. Perfection! CD

Morris DayDaydreaming ... CD
Warner (Japan), 1987. New Copy ... On August 18, 2015
Morris Day at the height of his 80s fame – working away from The Time, but in a groove that's still got plenty of Minneapolis funk! The production's a bit more souped up than before – in that super-tight way that both Day and Prince had of wrapping the basslines around the keyboards, and sending the whole thing over the top – beating the rhythms with a splashy sort of sound that spreads out nicely between the speakers! And Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis help out a bit on production, too – furthering that sound even more – and ensuring that the album's got plenty of hook-heavy numbers for the crossover scene. Titles include "Yo Luv", "A Man's Pride", "Fishnet", "Moonlite Passionlite", "Sally", "Love Is A Game", and "Standing On The Line". CD

✨✧ Pete RockPetestrumentals 2 ... CD
Mello Music Group, 2015. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
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!

✨✧ John ColtraneMeditations ... LP
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". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Fela & Africa 70Sorrow Tears & Blood (180 gram pressing – with bonus download) ... LP
Knitting Factory, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An impassioned attack on police and army violence in 70s Nigeria – and easily one of Fela Kuti's best-remembered albums of the time! The lead track – "Sorrow Tears & Blood" – is really tremendous – a wicked groove that begins with a very long electric piano solo, which sets things up with almost a melancholy vibe – which is then echoed by the alto sax – all instrumental elements that create their own sort of pain and anguish, which is then given focus by the angry lyrics of the tune! "Colonial Mentality" has an equally sinister vibe, and some especially strong saxophone work – really powerful, and with a very sharp edge – so that it really stands out from the rest of the group!

MCA/Reprise, 1968. Used ... 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".

✨✧ 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 ... Temporarily 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.

✨✧ J DillaShining ... LP
BBE (UK), 2006. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily 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".

✨✧ Bruno Nicolai99 Donne (99 Women) ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1968. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The sexy score for 99 Donne – an obscure Jess Franco film about 99 female prisoners, locked behind bars and alone with their passions! Given the setting, Bruno Nicolai's soundtrack is actually incredibly free of kitsch – and instead blends together driving upbeat numbers with some mellower, moodier tunes – often presented with full orchestrations that bring in notes of sadness and sentiment. That's not saying that the whole thing's not groovy – as Bruno includes some nice jazzy touches on the album, which are unusual for his work – and the leadoff track also features some really great English language vocals from Audrey Stainton! Very nicely reissued, with images from the film, and a total of 24 tracks in all! CD

✨✧ RodriguezComing From Reality (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Sussex/Light In The Attic, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily 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

✨✧ Patti SmithEaster ... CD
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. CD
Also available Easter ... LP 24.99

✨✧ David S WareThird Ear Recitation ... CD
DIW (Japan), 1993. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Very outside work from David S Ware – quite a change from the more spiritual vibe of his previous album for DIW, but still pretty darn great! A few cuts here still have Ware hitting that sort of Billy Harper spiritual jazz vibe we love so much – but others are much more outside, extremely free, with tenor solos that move all over the map in search of Ware's musical vision. The group features strong support from Matthew Shipp on piano and William Parker on bass – both of whom really were making a name for themselves in their work with Ware at this point – plus drums from Whit Dickey. Titles include "East Broadway Rundown", "Autumn Leaves", "Angel Eyes", "Mystic March", "Third Ear Recitation", "Free Flow Dialogue", and "Sentient Compassion". CD

✨✧ MopsPsychedelic Sounds in Japan ... LP
Perfect Sound, 1968. Used (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A buzzing, hard-hitting batch of pychedelic rock from Japan's The Mops – featuring some groovy, echoey tunes penned by the group and sung in their native language – plus a nice choice of passionate covers! The sound is a little bit like Love in their early rawness – and the Mops obviously have a great feel for psychedelia at its fuzziest and most tuneful. Great stuff! Tracks include "Asamade Matenai", "San Francisco Nights", "I Am Just A Mops", "The Letter", "Blind Bird", "Somebody To Love", "White Rabbit", "Light My Fire", "Kienai Omoi" and more.

Parker holds down the on bass with stellar Cooper-Moore organ grooves, Darryl Foster on tenor and Gerald Cleaver on drums.
