✨✧ Jimi Hendrix ExperienceElectric Ladyland (CD & DVD deluxe edition) ... CD
Experience Hendrix, 1968. Used CD & DVD ... 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 effort that includes"Voodoo Chile", "Crosstown Traffic", "Electric Ladyland", "Little Miss Strange", "Moon Turn The Tides", "Still Raining Still Dreaming" and "All Along The Watchtower". CD
(DVD is NTSC format, all region.)

✨✧ Van MorrisonAstral Weeks (180 gram pressing – clear vinyl) ... LP
Warner/Rhino, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Van's debut album for Warner Brothers and a pretty radical departure from anything he'd done before – breaking all kinds of new ground for his own most creative work and helping pave the way for all kinds of hauntingly poetic rock, folk rock, and singer-songwriter records to come! It doesn't take hearing more than a few seconds of the opening title track, with Morrison's rawly passionate voice and spiritually yearning lyrics, to know this is a pretty remarkable creative leap from pop leaning sound of "Brown Eyed Girl" and other preceding efforts! It's almost folk jazz, arrangements wise, with flute and largely acoustic instrumentation, a really spontaneous feel to the sessions, and always hypnotic, seemingly stream of consciousness vocals by Van. As loose and spacious as the sound is, the emotional resonance is pretty heavy, and it's sequenced as a cycle: part one (In The Beginning) on side 1 and part two (Afterwards) on side 2. A stunner! Titles include "Astral Weeks", "Beside You", "Cyprus Avenue", "Sweet Thing", "Slim Slow Slider", and "Madame George". LP, Vinyl record album
(50th Anniversary pressing on 180 gram cler vinyl.)
Also available Astral Weeks ... LP 19.99

✨✧ Lucinda WilliamsRamblin' ... CD
Folkways, 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Classic folk blues and acoustic Americana from Lucinda Williams – her first record for Folkways – recorded at Malaco Studios with just Lucinda's naturally wonderful vocals, 12 string strumming, and 6 string accompaniment by John Grimaudo! Ramblin' finds Lucinda doing passionate, but somehow kind of relaxed renditions of a numbers from blues, folk and traditional canon, numbers by Robert Johnson, Memphis Minnie, Hank Williams, the Carter Family and others. Lucinda was much more celebrated decades later, but nothing she's done works better than the Folkways era for our ears. Includes "Ramblin' On My Mind", "Me And My Chauffer", "Malted Milk Balls", "Disgusted", "Drop Down Daddy", "Jambalaya", "Satisfied Mind" and more. CD

✨✧ VariousLost Ladies Of Soul Vol 1 ... CD
Lost Soul, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great collection of rare female soul tunes – one that really goes past the cliches of other sets of this type! The best thing about this one is the way that it really pays attention to girl group sounds of the early 70s – a pivotal time in the tradition, when the girl trio sound was transforming from the sweeter grooves of the 60s, into a more sophisticated, more progressive groove for the 70s. There's loads of great numbers in here with a hip early 70s sound – and just about every cut is a rare single-only title that you'd be hard pressed to find elsewhere. Titles include "Don't Make It Hurt" by Byrdie Green, "You Better Make A Move" by The Passions, "Lost Without The Love Of My Guy" by Viola Wills, "Where Did He Come From" by Sunday Williams, "It Must Be Love" by The Sequins, "Have You Been Making Out OK" by Quiet Elegance, "The Gleam In Your Eye" by The Overtones, "Ready Made Family" by Creative Funk, "Oh Yes I Do" by The Eight Minutes, and "Never Change Our Love" by Toni & The Hearts.

✨✧ VariousTo The Outside Of Everything – A Story Of UK Post-Punk 1977 to 1981 (5CD set) ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 5CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great sounds from some of our favorite years of the British scene – those moments right after punk first exploded, and a generation of young English artists took off in so many different musical directions! The era's been labeled as post-punk, but what makes it really unique is that the label hardly does the music justice – as the time had such a rich array of sounds and styles, it would be impossible to sum of the vibe in just a few short words! There's definitely some punk elements in the music, but there's also electronic moments, sweeter songs, noisy bits, compressed prog inspirations, and even some occasional witty elements – with songwriting that's really stood the test of time over the years. There have been other collections of post-punk work over the years, but we've never seen a package like this – as the 5CD set features 111 tracks in all, packaged inside a book-style cover that's overflowing with notes and images – all with a track selection that includes lots of lost gems. In other words, even if you're like us, and already love this period, you'll still find plenty of greatness here – as the whole thing's balanced well enough to please both newcomers and longtime collectors. Includes work by Dif Juz, Glaxo Babies, The Homosexuals, Ultravox, Swell Maps, Clock DVD, Maximum Joy, Section 25, The Cravats, Native Hipsters, Josef K, Art Objects, The Passions, Big In Japan, Fischer-Z, Family Fodder, Girls At Our Best, Ludus, Boots For Dancing, In Camera, The Disco Zombies, Medium Medium, Alternative TV, The Nightingales, My Captains, Five Or Six, Steve Diggle, Dance Chapter, Fire Engines, Spoon Fazer, and many others!

Centering, 2010. Used ... Out Of Stock
A deeply personal project by William Parker in honor of his own Uncle Joe and Aunt Lee – his Bronx dwelling family, paid tribute to with an excellent, timeless soul jazz organ set – we should all by so treasured by uber-talented, passionate kin! Parker holds down the on bass with stellar Cooper-Moore organ grooves, Darryl Foster on tenor and Gerald Cleaver on drums. Titles include "Uncle Joe's Spirit House", "Jacques Groove, "Ennio's Tag", "Document For LJ", "The Struggle", "Oasis" and more. CD

✨✧ Pearl JamLet's Play Two ... LP
Republic, 2017. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Pearl Jam live at Wrigley Field! Pearl Jam's growth from early 90s angsty, yet classic rock inspired semi-iconoclasts into one of the world's most epic arena rock institutions is pretty darn endearing anyway, but we've rarely heard a more joyful, passionate live Pearl Jam than what's here, culled from their 2 night stand at Chicago's fabled "friendly confines". Eddie Vedder is a card carrying Cubs superfan and you'd have to be pretty cold to not feel all warm and cozy about this kid growing up to sellout the home of his heroes – but all that aside, this is as big and heart-filling as live mainstream rock & roll gets these days. Tracklist covers album classics and rarities alike and includes "Low Light", "Better Man", "Elderly Woman Behind The Counter In A Small Town", "Last Exit", "Lightning Bolt", "Black, Red, Yellow", "Given To Fly", "Jeremy", "Inside Job", "Go", "Crazy Mary", "I've Got A Feeling" and more.

✨✧ Nick RosenInto The Sky ... CD
Porter, 2010. Used ... Out Of Stock
The debut full length from bass player, field recorder and soaringly spirited composer Nick Rosen – a pretty darn beautiful cosmic jazz influenced gem in the Build An Ark school of modern, genre defying starry soundscapes! The set is arranged by Rosen and Build An Ark's Miguiel Atwood-Ferguson, who also plays violin, viola, piano and more – joined by fellow Ark dwellers Dexter Story, Mia Doi Todd, Carlos Nino and others. That said, this is not a Build An Ark record, it's Rosen's – whose work is a bit more grounded in jazz, but just as passionate, joyous and inviting. The instrumentation is ambitious, but there's a sense of intimacy, too. Flute, vibes, percussion, flugelhorn and French horn, harp, cello, bassoon and other elements bring it to flight. A pretty wonderful record – and the first of what we hope will be a long career and great music to come from 25-year-old Nick Rosen! Includes "Ancestral Echoes", "Twin Harbors", "Manya", "Mindy's Song", "Blossoming Song", "Nature's Breath", "In Her Smile". "For People", "Rainfall", "African Sun" and "Winter Into Spring". CD

✨✧ Sea & CakeBiz (colored vinyl pressing – with download) ... LP
Thrill Jockey, New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the most engaging earlier records by the Chicago avant pop greats The Sea And Cake! The Biz has a reputation as one their looser, and more structurally sprawling records – but to honest, we don't really hear that – the drums are louder in the mix, the rhythms sink in deeply, Sam Prekop's vocals are more outwardly passionate – and to us, the songs are as memorable here as on any of their records. This album was a real alternative to mainstream "alternative rock" in its day, so much fresher and more inspired – and it sounds great to this day! Tracks include "The Biz", Leeora", The Kiss", "Station In The Valley", "Darkest Night", "Sending", "Escort", "An Assassin", "The Transaction", and "For Minor Sky", perhaps their single best song ever. LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition colored vinyl pressing – with download.)

✨✧ 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!

✨✧ VariousThose Shocking Shaking Days – Indonesian Hard Psychedelic Progressive Rock & Funk 1970 to 1978 (with download) ... LP
Now Again, 1970s. New Copy 3 LPs ... Out Of Stock
A truly incredible overview of 70s Indonesian funk, rock and psychedelia infused recordings – and it's beautifully put together, to boot – one of the very best compilations yet from Stones Throw's Now Again branch! There's an undercurrent of funk to most of this material, but it's always topped off with prog & psych rhythmic heaviness and dexterity, and usually done with passionate, feverish vocals. The story of Indonesian underground music of the time is a complicated one, and one that's been hard to come by outside of the region, given the difficult political circumstances of the time. This amazing set does a tremendous service for this music. Essential! Includes "Haai" by Panbers, "Anti Gandja" by The Brims, "Bad News" by Rollies, "People" by Super Kid", "Evil War" by Shark Move, "Shake Me" by Aja, "The Promise" by Rhythm Kids, "Uang" by Duo Kribo, "Pantun Lama" by Murry Lama, "Hear Me" by Golden Wing, "Candle Light" by Beny Soebardja And Lizard and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes download card for 64 page booklet & all tracks.)
Also available Those Shocking Shaking Days – Indonesian Hard Psychedelic Progressive Rock & Funk 1970 to 1978 ... LP 24.99

✨✧ Mike WestbrookLive (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Cadillac/Hux (UK), 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Mike Westbrook live, and also a bit more stripped-down than on some of his earlier albums – less of the high concept presentation overall, and more in the mode of the sharper edges of the British scene of the time! The tracks are all longish, and nicely open at points – flowing with a much more organic energy than we might expect from Westbrook, and almost allowing for some fusion influences at times – especially on the guitar by Gary Boyle, and Westbrook's own use of electric piano. Other members of the quintet include George Khan on electric saxophone, Alan Jackson on drums and alto sax, and Butch Potter on bass guitar, flute, and "pogo stick" – and titles include "Travellin", "Compassion", "Down On The Farm", "Metropolis 1X", and "Pleasure City". CD also includes two never-issued live tracks – "Marching Song" and "Spaces". CD

✨✧ VariousCulture Power 45 – Fruition (colored vinyl) ... LP
Culture Power 45, 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A stellar compilation of the first bunch of limited edition singles released by the vinyl-only Culture Power 45 label/loose, like-minded independent hip hop collective! Culture Power 45 is heavy with some of our hometown heroes, but is not exclusively Chi-centric – with strong tracks by Thaione Davis, Infinito 2017, Iomos Marad, Radius and more, and solid production by some of the above plus Tall Black Guy, Kenny Keys, Cool D, Empee and others. Passionate, driven, rock solid hip hop from a strong roster of talent! Includes "Jr Boy Can't Let Go" by Rashid Hadee, "TIme U Miss" by Fatnice, "LIFE Long" by Shiv, "Two In One" by Radius, "War Against Commercialism" by Infinito 2017, "Just Me" by Iomos Marad, "Found Me"" by 9th Scientist and more.

✨✧ 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! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Charles MingusReincarnation Of A Love Bird (Candid) ... CD
Candid, 1960. Used ... Out Of Stock
A great counterpart to the two famous Charles Mingus albums for the Candid label – really a third "lost" Candid album, recorded at the time of those sets, but never issued until many years later! As with those great dates, the work here is filled with righteous anger, unbridled emotion, and some of the most passionate jazz work of the 20th Century – directed by Mingus with unfailing energy on the bass, and featuring solo work from players who include Charles McPherson, Lonnie Hillyer, Booker Ervin, Paul Bley, Eric Dolphy, and Jimmy Knepper. None of the tracks here appeared on the albums that were released by Candid – Presents Charles Mingus or Mingus – and they were all recorded on the November 11, 1960 date that yielded part of that second album. Titles include "Bugs", "Reincarnation of a Lovebird", "R&R", "Wrap Your Troubles In Dreams", and a soulful take on "Body and Soul". CD

✨✧ Poncho Sanchez & Terence BlanchardChano Y Dizzy ... CD
Concord, 2011. Used ... Out Of Stock
A pretty wonderful tribute to the pioneering talents of conga great Chano Pozo and jazz trumpet giant Dizzy Gillespie – led by Poncho Sanchez and Terrence Blanchard! The set gets off to an incredible start on a medley in which the players so deftly blend Latin percussion, vocals and rhythms with Diz-indebted jazz – and that high quality is maintained throughout! Exciting, passionate play from the leaders and a group that includes Tony Banda on bass, Rob Hardt on sax, David Torres on piano, Francisco Torres on trombone and others. Includes "Chano Pozo Medley: Tin Tim Deo/Manteca/Guachi Guaro", Dizzy's incredible "Con Alma" and "Groovin' High", "Wandering Wonder", "Siboney", "Dizzy's Dashiki", "Nocturna", "Promenade", "Arinanara" and "Jack's Dilemma". CD
