✨✧ Fela & Africa 70Sorrow Tears & Blood (180 gram pressing – with bonus download) ... LP
Knitting Factory, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... 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!

✨✧ Bert JanschRiver Sessions ... CD
River (UK), 1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
British folk great Bert Jansch sounding purely excellent, passionate and inspiring these River Sessions from 1974 – recorded live at the City Hall in Glasgow! The material draws from his LA Turnaround and Santa Barbara Honeymoon LPs from the period and this purportedly the only place to find live versions of songs from the great LA Turnaround – and even with that significance, it's simply wonderful stuff, with Bert's inviting vocals and amazing guitar, plus affable between song chatter. Titles include "Build Another Band", "One For Jo", "The Blacksmith", "Travelin' Man", "Fresh As A Sweet Sunday Morning", "Dance Lady Dance", "Running From Home", "In The Bleak Mid-Winter", "Chamberlin" and more.

✨✧ Lee MorganLee Morgan (aka The Last Album) ... LP
Blue Note, 1972. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Brilliant work throughout – the last studio album ever cut by Lee Morgan, and a mindblowing session that always leaves us wondering how massive he would have become if he hadn't been tragically murdered shortly after it was recorded! The album's a huge change from Morgan's already-great work of the 60s – and features some very extended numbers, most a side long and these free-flowing numbers that are played by a larger group than usual – but with all the intensity and focus of a small group date from Lee! The set features key work from a young Billy Harper on tenor – especially on his own fantastic compositions "Capra Black" and "Croquet Ballet" – and for many folks, the record was a key introduction to Harper's genius. But the whole lineup is wonderful too – especially Harold Mabern on piano – and other titles include "In What Direction Are You Heading", "Angela", and "Inner Passions Out". LP, Vinyl record album
(UA pressing. Cover has some wear.)

Dust & Grooves, 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful photography expedition into some the world's foremost vinyl collections, and interviews with the collectors! Dust & Grooves is an amazing tome for a number of reasons. First and foremost, it's filled with mouth watering, large scale, full color photos of some the most incredible record rooms you'll ever be lucky enough to see. Beyond that, the interviews really get to the heart and soul of what drives the record diggers themselves. It's a varied bunch, including some famous artists and DJs like Gilles Peterson and King Britt, but many more private, but just as passionate collectors. Dust & Grooves creator Eilon Paz is of them – one of us, actually – and his labor of love here is completely wonderful! 400+ pages, in a heavy duty coffee table book format – with a forward by The RZA, and interviews with fellow bonafide creative heavies/record collectors Gilles Peterson, Four Tet, The Gaslamp Killer, Stones Throw/Now Again honcho Egon and many more.

✨✧ VariousNigeria Special Vol 2 – Modern Highlife, Afro Sounds, & Nigerian Blues 1970 to 1976 ... CD
Soundway (UK), 1970s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A second volume from one of our favorite compilation series of 70s African music ever – Nigeria Special Volume 2 from the rare Afrobeat treasure diggers at Soundway Records! This deeper delve into the well of hard-to-find early to mid 70s material sticks is just as wonderful – chronicling rare singles, A-sides and B-sides, as well as lesser known album tracks that wonderful fuse styles of African funk, soul & jazz, highlife and more. Heavy rhythms and passionate sounds galore, from the first half dozen years of the decade in this second, and purportedly final installment of the flagship Nigerian Special series! It's very exciting that researcher and compiler Miles Cleret puts together compilations of such top caliber material, on a level that it's mindboggling that so much has languished largely unheard for so many years! 19 tracks : "Psychedelic Baby" by Fubura Sekibo, "Shango Oba Onina" by Black's Zenith, "Omohupa" by The Otarus, "The Lord's Prayer"m by The Don Isaac Ezekiel Combination, "Jeka Subu" by Bola Johnson & His Easy Life Top Beats", "Motako" by Fidel Sax Bateke & The Voices Of Darkness and more.

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

The first of a pair of underrated efforts from Michael Prophet from the early 80s – solid, soulful material produced by Henry Junko Lawes and backed by the Roots Radics band!
