Babs Robert & The Love PlanetBabs Robert & The Love Planet ... CD
Alpha/SeriE.WOC (Italy), 1970. New Copy ... $19.99
Qui est Babs Robert? Turns out he's a hell of a saxophonist from the Belgian scene at the start of the 70s – an amazingly soulful player who's got just the right sort of spiritual vibe to live up to the image on the cover! Babs plays alto, tenor, and even a bit of electric tenor too – plus wood flute, percussion, and other instruments – in a group of players who often handle an equal range of instruments themselves! The music is a mix of modal groovers and freer, more spiritual sounds – a space that's somewhere between the Art Ensemble of Chicago and Pharoah Sanders on Impulse Records – carried off by an equally obscure, but equally excellent group of musicians. Titles include "Marrow Bone", "Extra Pol Action", "Architexture", "PACM", "Pro Forma 1", and "His Master's Noise". CD

✨✧ B-52sWild Planet ... LP
Warner, 1980. Near Mint- ... $24.99
They may look goofy on the cover, but the young B-52s are incredible here – working with this spare sense of power that almost makes us think that we didn't need most of what happened in rock and roll during the 70s – given the way these guys can distill a mood or moment down to just a few deft instrumental turns and offbeat lyrics! The record's not punk, but it's also not new wave either – at least in the conventional way – and there's a darkness here that goes way past any simple cliches you may have associated with the band – a haunting feel that transcends most of what they were ever capable of in later years. We might even say this one tops their debut – and titles include "Party Out Of Bounds", "Dirty Back Road", "Runnin Around", "Give Me Back My Man", "Private Idaho", "Devil In My Car", "Quiche Lorraine", "Strobe Light" and "53 Miles West Of Venus". LP, Vinyl record album

BrownoutFear Of A Brown Planet ... Cassette
Fat Beats, 2018. New Copy ... On October 13, 2018
The Brownout magic turns towards the world of Public Enemy this time around – in a sweet little record that serves up Latin funk instrumentals of PE classics! The music is hardly hip hop – apart from a few turntable scratches and vocal samples – and instead, the groove is deep deep funk, with plenty of Latin elements thrown into the mix – served up with a super-tight blast of horns, lots of riffing guitar, and plenty of heavy percussion! Titles include instrumental remakes of "911 Is A Joke", "Prophets Of Rage", "Fight The Power", "Louder Than A Bomb", "Shut Em Down", "Don't Believe The Hype", and "Welcome To The Terrordome".

JamiroquaiEmergency On Planet Earth (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Sony (UK), 1993. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $24.99
The group's first full length album – and a classic batch of soulful funky tunes, handled with the charm and care that would make Jamiroquai one of the best new soul acts to come out of the UK during the 90s. Think Brand New Heavies meets Stevie Wonder meets Steely Dan, and you'll get only part of the picture – as Jay and crew work things together perfectly, blending a wide range of influences into a globally conscious cosmic groove that's a perfect soul platform for the 21st century! 10 tracks: "Didgin' Out", "When You Gonna Learn (JK mix)", "Too Young To Die", "Music Of The Mind", "Hooked Up", "If I Like It I Do It", "Whatever It Is I Just Can't Stop", "Blow Your Mind", "Revolution 1993", and "Emergency On Planet Earth".

Chip WickhamRed Planet (Andres rmx)/La Sombra (Carlos Nino's Spaceways Radio edit & additions) ... 12-inch
Lovemonk (Spain), 2017. Near Mint- ... $7.99
A sweet single that re-presents two tracks from the La Sombra album by Chip Wickham – one of our favorite spiritual jazz sets in recent years! "Red Planet" takes off into cosmic broken beat territory – more electrified complex rhythms driving at the core, while Chip's flute still gets a bit of a solo over the top! Carlos Nino brings his heady touch to "La Sombra" – really expanding the music with almost an early 70s Impulse Records vibe – as the flute and vibes have a great sense of warm exploration, amidst some other subtle sonic elements that really set the mood! 12-inch, Vinyl record

VariousPlanet Beat – From The Shel Talmy Vaults ... CD
Big Beat (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $12.99 18.99
Rare treasures from the mid 60s British beat scene – filled with raw rhythms and the tightest of harmonies – impeccable stuff from the personal archives legendary producer Shel Talmy! This set includes tunes in a similar orbit for sure, but Planet Beat is big one, not some little moon – with grittier rockers and easier going numbers alike, with raw soul influences and harmonies galore – it's pretty diverse beyond the shared characteristics. It's all rarities, too, more than half of it previously unreleased, which is kind of a stunner given the high quality throughout, with tracks by The Untamed, The First Gear, The Zephyrs, Sean Buckley & The Breadcrumbs, The Imp-Acts, The Lancastrians, The Pathfinders, The Talisman & more, recorded for Decca, Planet, Stateside, Columbia, Pye and other labels back in the day. 24 tracks in all: "My Baby Is Gone", by The Untamed, "Why" by The Pathfinders, "There's Something About You" by The Zephyrs, "Lonely Man" by The Lancastrians, "She Said Yeah" by The Presidents, "Our Love Is Gone" by The Imp-Acts, "Please Go" by The Trekkas, "Talk To Me Baby" by The Rising Sons, "Kids Take Over" by The Untamed, "Just Can't Keep A Good Man Down" by The Talismans and more.

VariousPlanet Mod – Brit Soul, R&B, & Freakbeat From The Shel Talmy Vaults (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Ace/Big Beat (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $29.99
Planet Mod is a pretty groovy place – a spot in the solar system where rock, blues, and soul effortlessly blend together – thanks to the mighty talents of the legendary producer Shel Talmy! The set here is a great dip into the farther reaches of Talmy's records of the 60s – way past the hits, to show the kind of magic that really made the studio genius such a key force in developing the sound of London at the time – often with a fair bit of influence from America, but in a way that was already shifting into fresh British modes for the new audiences overseas. As always with Ace, the package and presentation are stunning – and the set even features some rare tracks that truly come from the vaults, mixed with other obscure singles, and supported with a great deal of notes. 24 tracks in all – and titles include "Mai Lee" by John Lee Hooker, "Don't Let It Be" by The Tribe, "Goodbye Girl" by The Preachers, "Goodbye So Long" by The Soul Brothers, "Broken Truth" by A Wild Uncertainty, "Life's Too Good To Waste" by Tony Christie & The Trackers, "Stone Crazy" by Screamin Jay Hawkins, "Too Much Of A Woman" by The Corduroys, "Have You Ever Had The Blues (alt take)" by Ray Gates, "I'll Never Fall In Love Again" by John Lee's Groundhogs, "Unto Us (demo version)" by The New Breed, and "Think" by The Total.

✨✧ StuffOld Dreams New Planet ... LP
Gondwana (UK), 2018. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A very cool little combo – one that almost sounds like a funk band working with broken instruments! Stuff are really out to do something new here – borrowing bits of jazz and funk, then weaving together a sound that's equal parts acoustic and electric – but which has lots of fuzz and strange sonic qualities on the second half – thanks in part to the group's use of unusual instruments, including the wind synth – and their great ear for skittish, offbeat rhythms! The whole thing is maybe an extension of some of Madlib's jazzier work from years back – but airier at times too, and less tied to hip hop – with titles that include "Galapagos", "Delta", "Slug", "Strata", "Spinning Leaf", and "Vault".

Excellent early 60s work by Cannonball Adderley – retitled here for release in the late 60s, but with a rock-solid soul jazz sound all the way through! The album features Cannon's sextet with Yusef Lateef and Joe Zawinul – and they're playing a number of Lateef compositions that have that mix of soul and exoticism that always sounded great. Most of the best tunes are long, and the band plays weaving modal solos over tight rhythms by Zawinul, Sam Jones, and Louis Hayes. Titles include "The Weaver", "Syn-anthesia", "Planet Earth", and "Brother John", one of Lateef's best! LP, Vinyl record album

The classic from Afrika Bamaaataa & The Soul Sonic Force – one of the most revolutionary pieces of formative hip hop history! "Planet Rock" is straight up legendary for a number of reasons. It's one of those early hip hop hits to bring the genre to greater popularity, the deft use of Kraftwerk and Yellow Magic Orchestra inspiration with a NYC party rocking vibe is pure genius, and the overall effect on hip hop, house, electro and pop music to come is seriously huge. Vital! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Roundtable/Dual Planet (Australia), Early 80s. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99 32.99
A record that definitely belongs in the planetarium – given how spacey it sounds – thanks to work on a wide range of keyboards from Ian MacFarlane! This obscure set was originally released only as a cassette, but it's got a charm that really matches other electronic records of the period – particularly underground work from Europe, which often shares the same sort of cosmic vision as MacFarlane! The set's divided up into two phases – "First Theory – The Expanding Universe" – and "Second Theory – The Cyclic Universe" – each of which has a vibe that reflects their title. Tracks include "Fingers Pointing At The Moon", "Mindbridge", "Surrender To The Stars", "A Mountain Of Swords", "Seeds In The Dust", and "A Mountain Of Swords". LP, Vinyl record album

The album's no breakout for the Pointer Sisters, as the trio were already at the top of the charts when the set was released – but the whole thing does find a great way to keep the grooves coming in the group's lasting relationship with producer Richard Perry! There's plenty of 80s elements here – basslines, beats, and keyboards – moving the group way past some of the club and pop modes of the 70s – and keeping them perfectly poised for long-term crossover fame for years to come! Case in point is the album's long-running hit "Jump (For My Love)", nestled alongside other cuts that include "Automatic", "I'm So Excited", "I Need You", "Neutron Dance", "Easy Persuasion", "Baby Come And Get It", "Telegraph Your Love", and "Operator". CD features 8 more bonus tracks – single and 12" mixes of cuts on the album! CD

Eric SidayUltra Sonic Perception (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Berry/Dual Planet (Australia), Early 60s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $6.99 23.99
Very early electronic sound library material from Eric Siday – so much so, that all these tracks were originally issued as 78rpm singles – at a time before the sound library scene moved into using full LPs! A number of cuts here were used as early passages on the first Doctor Who episodes – and others follow nicely in a similar vein – with very bold, powerful explorations of the earliest elements of analogue electronics – and an especially strong ear for the darker side of the spectrum! Most numbers here are never too noisy – not as much so as avant compositional work of the time – but they hang on the edge in a really great way, creating a lot of stark spacey elements with just a few deft touches. Titles include "Comet", "Ultimate", "Moonscape", "Galaxy", "Suspended Animation", "The Machines", "Pavane", "Pizzicato Piano", "Challenge Of Space", and "Eclipse". LP, Vinyl record album

Of all Carl Craig's work, these tracks have got to be some of our favorites.

Moog and synth-heavy soundtrack to the early 80s nuclear horror B-Movie Chain Reaction! Composer Andrew Thomas Wilson pairs up elements of eerier synth and proggy rock inspired soundtracks by John Carpenter, Goblin and benchmark acts/composers of the period with some more droning, minimalist bits, and busy, nascent 80s electro pop and rock. Compelling stuff played on a mighty arsenal of period synthesizers and keyboards – mostly by Wilson himself, with only some additional help on guitar, drums and bass. Includes "Awakening", "The Beast", "Decontamination", "Heinrich's Theme", "Chain Reaction", "Once More With Feeling", "Paradise Valley", "The Hand At The Window" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Planet E, 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the boldest statements we've heard from the Detroit underground in years – and a great reminder that the city's legendary club sound is still alive and well – if you know where to look! Terrence Parker serves up a set that makes the Planet E label very proud – and which also maybe hits even more soulful territory than that imprint in its early days – kind of a rising, merging mode that also absorbs some of the best Chicago and New York currents, yet still keeps things very straightforward, with that special Detroit crackle that's always made the city's club tracks so exciting! Parker works with a few guests on the album – Merachka and Coco Street – and the set's about half vocal, and half instrumental – with tracks that include "Just Like Musik (main mix)", "Bassment Beats (TP bassment mix)", "God Loves Detroit (The Resurrection)", "Latter Rain (healing rain mix)", "Let's Go", "Lift Yo Hands Raise Em High", "The Sabbath", "Transition", and "Will You ever Come Back To Me".

Discos Marcus Pereira/Polysom (Brazil), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A 70s gem from Cartola – one of the key recordings done in a crucial flurry of activity in the later years of his career! There's a simple brilliance here that's hard to deny – aging vocals mixed with spare backings on guitar, flute, and percussion – all in a samba style that's never too driving, nor overly-emotive – but which resonates strongly from Cartola's many years on the planet. The session was one of a few that the singer did for the folkloric Marcus Pereira label – and it's got a wonderfully respectful sound throughout.

The instrumentation that backs his singing is equally compelling – his own lead work on a berimbau-like instrument, alongside other percussion, light stringed instrumentation, and a fair bit of supportive singing from the rest of the group – who provide an uplifting vibe next to Bare's lead. Titles include "Voun", "Lo Vye Bob", "Mwin Gabi", "Dann For Titan", "In Sor", and "Deor In Paradi". LP, Vinyl record album

Weird and wonderful sounds from one of the coolest spots in the universe – the legendary BBC Radiophonic Workshop, home to a mix of surprisingly groovy and experimental electronic music! This album was issued on the 25th anniversary of the sonic institution – and it features a strong mix of older analogue styles with some more 80s-oriented electronics – yet still with all the depth you'd expect from the Radiophonic Workshop during its classic years! These aren't tinny slasher keyboards, or electro pop programs – and instead, the music here is as thoughtful and compelling as the sounds created during the Delia Derbyshire generation – but are handled by artists who include Peter Howell, Paddy Kingsland, Dick Mills, Jonathan Gibbs, Elizabeth Parker, and Malcolm Clarke. Titles include "Mainstream", "Radiophonic Rock", "Computers In The Real World", "Rallyman", "Seascape", "Land & People", "Houdini's Magic Box", "Ghost In The Water", "Planet Earth", and "Catch The Wind".

David BowieNew Career In A New Town – 1977 to 1982 (11CD box set) ... CD
Parlophone, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 11CD ... $119.99 149.98
Amazing music from one of our most-treasured stretches of David Bowie's career – that creatively-fertile time when he escaped to West Berlin, hid from the mainstream, and made some groundbreaking records with Brian Eno – then returned to the limelight to remind us all that he was still a hell of a force to be reckoned with! The set includes everything post-Thin White Duke, and pre-Let's Dance – a run of music that's still shaping new sounds on this planet all these many years later. The set begins with Low – the mix of experimental instrumentals and subtle vocal tracks that was a complete change from Ziggy Stardust – and follows with Heroes, Lodger, and Scary Monsters & Super Creeps – all albums that reintroduce some sense of song and lyrical interplay, but at a level that clearly indicates how important Bowie was to the generation of post-punk and new wave as his earlier work was to psych, prog, and glam! But the package isn't just a standard collection of albums – because along with those four studio records, it also features the live album Stage, presented here in two different full mixes – plus a new 2017 mix of Lodger, which really increases the edge. There's also a special Heroes EP, with all the different language versions of the song – and a very cool Re:Call 3 album – which features all the singles that were issued at the time, plus other rare material – and Bowie's very unique take on Bertolt Brecht's Baal. Titles on this album include "Alabama Song", "Crystal Japan", "Under Pressure", "Remembering Marie A", "The Drowned Girl", "The Dirty Song", "Cat People", and even his "Peace On Earth/Little Drummer Boy" duet with Bing Crosby.

David BowieNew Career In A New Town – 1977 to 1982 (13LP box set) ... LP
Parlophone, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 13LP ... $189.99 249.98
Amazing music from one of our most-treasured stretches of David Bowie's career – that creatively-fertile time when he escaped to West Berlin, hid from the mainstream, and made some groundbreaking records with Brian Eno – then returned to the limelight to remind us all that he was still a hell of a force to be reckoned with! The set includes everything post-Thin White Duke, and pre-Let's Dance – a run of music that's still shaping new sounds on this planet all these many years later. The set begins with Low – the mix of experimental instrumentals and subtle vocal tracks that was a complete change from Ziggy Stardust – and follows with Heroes, Lodger, and Scary Monsters & Super Creeps – all albums that reintroduce some sense of song and lyrical interplay, but at a level that clearly indicates how important Bowie was to the generation of post-punk and new wave as his earlier work was to psych, prog, and glam! But the package isn't just a standard collection of albums – because along with those four studio records, it also features the live album Stage, presented here in two different full mixes – plus a new 2017 mix of Lodger, which really increases the edge. There's also a special Heroes EP, with all the different language versions of the song – and a very cool Re:Call 3 album – which features all the singles that were issued at the time, plus other rare material – and Bowie's very unique take on Bertolt Brecht's Baal. Titles on this album include "Alabama Song", "Crystal Japan", "Under Pressure", "Remembering Marie A", "The Drowned Girl", "The Dirty Song", "Cat People", and even his "Peace On Earth/Little Drummer Boy" duet with Bing Crosby. As with other entries in this complete Bowie series, the presentation is wonderful – album sleeve replicas, great packaging, and lots of notes – kind of a treasure, even if you already own some of the records!

Tim BuckleySefronia ... LP
DiscReet, 1973. Near Mint- ... $6.99
A great later album from Tim Buckley – one that really shows him evolving his style in the last few years before his tragic early departure from this planet! Tim's working in a style here that's oddly heavier and with more bluesy overtones than some of his classic 60s albums for Elektra – almost reaching for a stronger style that competes with other singer-songwriters who were beating his action at the time! We're not saying that the album's slick or overly commercial – just recorded with a fuller sound, and less of the light jazz-tinged folk styles used in earlier years. A few of the tunes are done in the older Buckley mode, but others have strings, backing vocals, and other larger arrangements. Titles include "Quicksand", "I Know I'd Recognize Your Face", "Martha", "Peanut Man", "Dolphins", "Honey Man", "Because Of You", and "Sefronia – The King's Chain". LP, Vinyl record album

Children Of ZeusTravel Light ... LP
First Word (UK), 2018. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99
Beautifully bottom-heavy sounds from Children of Zeus – a British duo who effortlessly blend together elements from hip hop and contemporary soul – very much in the spirit of the London sounds that first pricked up our ears at the start of the 90s, even if the approach here is much more 21st Century! There's a strong sense here that less is more – especially when the mix of vocals and rhymes comes across so meaningfully – often with just a key focus on the bassy depths of the music to give the lyrics a nice bite and punch, but all without sound cliched or underplayed at all. The set features guest work from Terri Walker, KSR, DRS, and Layfull Stop – and titles include "All On You", "Hard Work", "Sling Shot Riddim", "The Heart Beat", "Hoodman2manhood", "360", "Daddy's Car", and "Fear Of A Flat Planet".

John ColtraneCosmic Music ... LP
Impulse, 1968. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $59.99
A set that really earns its title – as it's easily some of the most cosmic music John Coltrane ever recorded – and also kind of a way of saying goodbye to the planet, to leave his music in the hands of a next generation of creators! The album features material recorded by a Coltrane group in 1966, and an Alice Coltrane combo in 1968, after Coltrane's death – making it a great link between two moments in the group – especially since Pharoah Sanders plays tenor and Alice Coltrane plays piano on both tracks. The Coltrane tunes – "Manifestation" and "Reverend King" – both have a righteous raw power – and the Alice Coltrane numbers – "The Sun" and "Lord Help Me" – really showcase the slower-building spiritual energy that both she and Pharoah Sanders would carry on in their music. Great stuff throughout – and completely essential! LP, Vinyl record album

John ColtraneLove Supreme (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Impulse, 1964. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $24.99
Maybe one of the greatest jazz albums of all time – a real breakthrough moment for the legendary John Coltrane, and the blueprint for generations of jazz records to come! Trane was already breaking down plenty of boundaries before Love Supreme – but he knocked it out of the park for the album – which is a full-length suite of spiritual expression, one that gives even greater focus and message to Coltrane's long-spiralling style of soloing on the tenor sax! The group here is the classic quartet – McCoy Tyner on piano, Jimmy Garrison on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums – taking Trane up to the heavens on waves of modal energy, but also holding his spirit closer to the planet than on some of later, more outside performances. There's a slight bit of vocalization on the record – that chanted energy that imbues the set with so much love – and movements include "Acknowledgement", "Resolution", "Pursuance", and "Psalm".

Sam CookeCooke's Tour ... LP
RCA, 1960. Very Good ... $19.99
Not a live tour album from Sam Cooke – but a globally-themed batch of tunes that really helps show off his range as a singer! The set features tunes with titles that evoke a rich landscape of settings from around the world – and offer Sam a nice chance to change things up a bit from the usual – moving more into a mature vocal mode that's different than his more familiar soul singles! Glen Osser handled the arrangements, and the approach is similar to Sam's Hits Of The 50s record – in that it showcases a wider range of material that points the way to the huge pop potential Cooke could have had, if he hadn't left this planet so quickly. Titles include "Galway Bay", "London By Night", "Bali Hai", "Far Away Places", "The Coffee Song", "Arrivederci Roma", and "Jamaica Farewell". LP, Vinyl record album

The vocals have this raspy charm that definitely underscores Wilson's years on this planet – and the backings have this warmth and jazzy undercurrent that really works well with the sound of the tunes – a slight hint of sentiment, but never in a cloying way – just the perfect sort of balance to honor the talents and accomplishments of someone like Das Neves! Titles include "Trato", "Cara De Queixa", "Peao De Obra", "Limites", "Feito Siameses", "Mascara De Cera", "Se Me Chamar O Sorte", and "Dono Da Razao". CD

Maybe the best music so far from Emanative – a group who've been kicking around the London scene for the past decade or so, but who really seem to hit a new level with this album on Jazzman! The group's led by percussionist Nick Woodmansey, who often steps back to let all the other spiritual elements flow through the sound in a wonderful way – including excellent piano and organ from the great Jessica Lauren, plus reeds from Tamar Osborn and Ben Hadwen – both players who have a very cosmic approach – and haunting percussion from additional players, in addition to Nick's own work on drums, balafon, and other instruments. There's a very strong bassist in the lineup, too – Suman Joshi – and he directs the proceedings with great strength when everyone comes together – but also knows enough to step back when things are exploring different planes of global consciousness at a more personal level. Titles include "Spice Route Suite", "Egosystem", "New Day", "Heaven's Mirror", "Iyaami", "Raga Requiem", and "Minutes To Midnight For This Planet". CD

✨✧ Booker ErvinIn Between ... CD
Blue Note, 1968. Used ... Just Sold Out!
One of the last records that Booker Ervin ever recorded, and one of the best! There's a depth of tone and conception here that goes far beyond even Ervin's already-great albums for Prestige – a mix of modernism and soulful expression that really points the way towards jazz expression in the 70s – although sadly, Booker was to leave the planet before getting a chance to stretch out in that era. All 6 tracks on the album are originals – and they sparkle with the imagination found on some of the most top-shelf Blue Notes of the time – work by Lee Morgan, Hank Mobley, or Wayne Shorter – played by a group that includes the amazing Richard Williams on trumpet (almost worth the price of the record alone), Bobby Few on piano, Lenny McBrowne on drums, and the little-known Cevera Jefferies on bass. Loads of dark edges, searing solos, and plenty of free flights into the sky – on titles that include "The In Between", "Tyra", "The Muse", "Mour", "Sweet Pea", and "Largo". CD

Text, 2017. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $21.99
Some of the lushest, most melodic material from Four Tet yet – straight up beautiful for the most part – and a pretty strong contender for his best to date! He's blending electronics and more natural sounds in ways that aren't out of character given his past work, but the title is wholly appropriate. Up to this point, he's so fully embraced creative evolution, it's gratifying to hear a Four Tet record in which he brings in bits of the styles he's worked on past efforts with a new energy and fresh life. It'll roll from almost beatless mixes of electronic atmosphere and natural sounds on one track, to beats-centric and spacey on the next, but it gels all the way through, all parts of a hypnotic whole. Includes "Alap", "Two Thousand Seventeen", "LA Trance", "Tremper", "Lush", "You Are Loved", "10 Midi", "Daughter", and "Planet". LP, Vinyl record album

Excellent work from one of the most important production teams of recent times! Jazzanova have sharply defined the modern European taste for Brazilian and Latin-inflected grooves on the dancefloor – beginning in the mid 90s with work for the (then) new Compost Records imprint, and working up to present days with countless remix efforts for other artists. Sadly, Jazzanova have yet to cut an album of their own work – and this double-length set is probably the best full way to experience their rich talents. It features 20 tracks in all, many with a strong Brazilian or bossa flavor, and most with a tight dancefloor approach to jazz. Titles include "We Who Are Not As Others" by 4 Hero, "Soul Power" by Marcshmellows, "Carajillo" by Truby Trio, "Get Into My Groove" by Incognito, "Amazon Adventure" by Azymuth, "Words Of Love" by Soul Bossa Trio, "Welcome To The Party" by Har-You Percussion Group, "Planet Of Breaks" by Visit Venus, "Burnin" by Tate's Place, "Toda Tersafeira" by Soul Quality Quartet, "Circe" by Ursula Rucker, "Fifths" by Ski, and "Complete Life" by Liquid Lounge – all remixed by Jazzanova!

The record's got a sound that's completely unique – as crack LA garage punk rock meets Hollywood baroque production, and the result is an amazing bit of loud guitar noise backed by strings and horns, all graced by the godlike vocals of the great Arthur Lee. Forever Changes is a milestone in rock – an incredibly bleak document about insanity, escape, and the coming revolution that never happened. Think of all the best moments of Wild In The Streets, Zabriske Point, and Invocation of My Demon Brother rolled into one – and you'll only have a tiny slice of the picture! A record that will haunt us until the day we die – filled with incredible songs like "Alone Again Or", "Old Man", "Daily Planet", "Red Telephone", and "Maybe The People Would Be The Times Or Between Clark & Hilldale". This fantastic package is the most comprehensive we've ever seen of the album – one that maybe even outdoes efforts like this for records by The Beach Boys or Velvet Underground!

A Dutch group from the early 80s – but one with a really spiritual feel – more than enough so to live up to their name on this overlooked gem of a record! The group work in this spiraling, open-ended mix of electric piano, modal rhythms, and saxes – often handled in this post-Coltrane sort of way that lets the sax really reach out on the solos, while the rest of the combo find their own groove – a great subtle space that's explored with effortless ease! Tunes build wonderfully – often with a modal sort of groove – and the feel is much more early 70s American underground than you'd guess from the date. Titles include "Birth Of A Sun", "Further In Space", "Marimba Planet", "Cosmic Background Radiation", "Do You Love Music", "Trip To The Nearest Star", and "Brothers & Sisters". CD

Dannie Richmond plays drums, and Jaki Byard is superb on piano – and titles on this second volume include "Charlemange", "At-Fw-You", "Sophisticated Lady", "So Long Eric", and "Orange Was The Color Of Her Dress Then Blue Silk".

Wes MontgomeryRoad Song ... CD
A&M/Verve (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $18.99
Beautifully lofty work from the great Wes Montgomery – a set that was recorded quite late in his too-short career, and really points the way towards some of the sophisticated sounds that might have followed, had Wes not left this planet all too soon! Don Sebesky is at the head of the charts this time around, and while the vibe echoes some of the other work that Montgomery did with larger backings in the period, there's also a nice current of darkness too – this intensity that can come through, even if the tune is a familiar pop number. The ensemble is filled with great players – Herbie Hancock and Hank Jones on piano, Stan Webb on flute, Grady Tate on drums, and Ray Barretto on percussion – and titles include "I'll Be Back", "Road Song", "Yesterday", "Serene", "Green Leaves Of Summer", and "Fly Me To The Moon".

Leonard Nimoy & William ShatnerSpaced Out – The Very Best Of Leonard Nimoy & William Shatner ... CD
Spectrum/Universal (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $6.99
Beam me up Scotty, this music hurts my ears! If you've ever seen older episodes of Star Trek, you'd hardly think that Mr Spock and Captain Kirk could ever pass as pop singers – but during the late 60s, thanks to a series of recordings for Dot Records, both Leonard Nimoy and William Shatner got the chance to stretch out their vocal chords by taking familiar tunes of the time and giving them a more dramatic Trekkie twist! Nimoy was actually a pretty darn good singer at the time – having come out of a career in which he'd done some nightclub work – and although Shatner really didn't have much of a voice, he hardly let that stop him – as you'll hear on his overly-dramatized tunes in the set, which are spoken and acted out as much as they're sung! Oddly, we really find this stuff to be pretty darn groovy – especially in comparison to other 60s pop vocal albums of the time, which often just had the same tunes redone, but in versions that were pretty flat. These versions are anything but flat – and alongside the dramatic renditions of the lyrics, often feature cool spacey instrumentation, weird production, and odd arrangements that clearly showed that all parties involved were having a pretty darn good time! 24 tracks in all – including Nimoy's wonderful Spock-like original "Highly Illogical", plus the tracks "If I Had A Hammer", "Music To Watch Space Girls By", "A Visit To A Sad Planet", "I'd Love Making Love To You", "Sunny", "I Walk The Line", "Ballad Of Bilbo Baggins", and "Spock Thoughts". Shatner tracks include "King Henry The 5th", "Elegy For The Brave", "Mr Tambourine Man", "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds", and "How Insensitive". CD

Modern Harmonic, Mid 90s. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
One of the coolest records of school kid music you could ever hope to own – and not just because avant legends Terry Riley, Fred Frith, and Marshall Allen each make an appearance on the project! In fact, even without those big names, the music here would still be tremendous – as it stems from a unique project in the Oakland public school system – one that introduces young grade school children to music, even if they've never performed together – combining all their efforts into a large ensemble with some really tremendous results! The lineup shifts from track to track, but there's a really unified vibe here – as reed, string, and percussion players are all finding a space to come together – often with phrasing and rhythms that are primitive, but with very modern edges – maybe like some of the larger projects by Moondog. Some of the kids are really impressive on their solos, and the overall ensemble sound is wonderful – maybe earthier than even some of the early Arkestra recordings on Saturn. This release brings together music from obscure CD and cassette releases in the 90s – with over 30 tracks in all, including "Bambi Meets Godzilla", "Waves", "Help I'm Drowning In A Sea Of Harmony", "Fireclouds", "Crazy Strings", "Excuse Me Ms Steigerwald", "Double Bock Double Rock", and a version of the Sun Ra tune "Planet Earth".

Aruan OrtizAruan Ortiz Trio – Live In Zurich ... CD
Intakt (Switzerland), 2018. New Copy ... $18.99 19.99
Pianist Aruan Ortiz really blows us away here – working on three long tracks that show a completely unique approach to the piano, but one that's as melodically pleasing as it is experimental! The trio features the great Chad Taylor on drums, and also on a bit of mbira – and Ortiz really seems to have resonance with him, as he plays these piano notes that as rhythmic as they are tuneful – balanced out by some occasional freer elements from bassist Brad Jones, whose mostly a player who has the same sense of deep soul that we love in Taylor's approach. All three musicians are a real revelation, and the long performance also features a bass solo from Jones, and inventive arrangements of slices of Chopin and Ornette Coleman. Wonderful throughout – and the kind of illuminating record that will make us dig for new jazz records until we leave this planet! CD

MusiCues/Wah Wah (Spain), Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
Fantastic spacey sounds by the young Jean-Jacques Perry – heard here before his more famous American recordings with Gershon Kingsley – in a mode that's maybe even more abstract and modern overall! The sounds are an unusual link between the musique concrete scene in France and some of the more commercial uses of electronics at the time – almost a bit like the blend that was coming from some of the hipper cats experimenting in The Netherlands, even though this album only received a limited release as a non-commercial sound library record. This reissue features a full side of bonus material – all unreleased material and demos – and titles include "Saturian Bird", "Music Of The Planets", "The Alien Planet", "Cybernuts", "Spatial Blues", "Barnyard In Orbit", "Caverns In Deep Sea", and "Aqua Density".

Inner City, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
One of the best-remembered Sun Ra albums from the 70s – a really cool little session that features Ra playing the unusual "rocksichord" all the way through! The instrument's a very weird one – kind of like a messed-up electric piano, with lots of cool broken notes and a weird fuzzed-out tone – one that almost feels like a guitar's being fitted into a keyboard, with almost psychedelic results! Ra's use of the rocksichord gives the album a really eerie, outer spacey sound – one that mixes strongly with more familiar jazz lines from John Gilmore on tenor, Marshall Allen on alto and flute, Danny Thompson on baritone, and Ahmed Abdullah on trumpet. Titles include "The Mystery Of Two", "Interstellar Low Ways", "Cosmos", "Moonship Journey", "Neo-Project #2", and "Jazz From An Unknown Planet". LP, Vinyl record album

Sun RaSpace Age Is Here To Stay ... LP
Modern Harmonic, Late 50s/1960s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $34.99 36.99
The first far-reaching collection of vocal tracks recorded by Sun Ra and his Arkestra over the years – perfectly put together, and featuring a number of previously-unissued tracks as well! The Space Age Is Here To Stay covers a wide range of the cosmic jazz styles Ra traveled (and pretty much invented) from the late 50s to early 80s – from the immediate post-doo wop underground sound he worked in the late 50s, to the impeccable mix of free jazz and subtle, soulful tones a decade later, to the searching spiritualism that came later still. For all that's going here stylistically, the vocals and thematic lyricism hold it all together aesthetically, with Ra himself on chants and spoken passages, June Tyson and Hattie Randolph bringing an angelic quality on some numbers, and all around excellent Arkestra ensemble vocals throughout! The incredible opener "Along Came Ra/The Living Myth" is a live recording from Paris in 1983 that sets the creative bar quite high with feverish percussion, the sweetly soulful voice of June Tyson, and spacey spoken word by Ra. That said, the quality soars high throughout – and other titles include "Interplanetary Music No. 1", "Back In Your Own Back Yard", "Sometimes I'm Happy", "Space Is The Place", "Forest Of No Return", "Truth About Planet Earth", "Space Chant (Third Heaven)", "Antique Blacks", "Enlightenment" and more.

Fantastic late live material by Sun Ra and the Arkestra – presented here properly for the first time ever – with fantastic sound, and the full contents of two different sets – which really lets you get to hear the Arkestra at their best! Each concert is a wonderful progression of material – and really show the way that, near the end of Ra's life, the group was able to embrace so many different generations of jazz at once – sounding straight one minute, out the next, leaning trad at others, and snapping back with a sense of modernity that's still years ahead of its time! June Tyson and Michael Ray sing on a few tracks – and John Gilmore even sings once, too – and the group features Gilmore on tenor, Marshall Allen on flute and alto, James Jacson on flute and bassoon, Tyrone Hill on trombone, Knoel Scott on alto, Jothan Callins on bass, Charles Davis on baritone, and Ahmed Abdullah and Michael Ray on trumpets. As with most Arkestra concerts, the transition between moods and songs is what really makes this set great – with lots of unique moments that further our faith in the live Sun Ra experience. Titles include "Yeah Man", "Mayan Temples", "Advice To Medics/Friendly Galaxy", "Opus In Springtime", "Carefree", "Cocktails For Two", "Planet Earth Day", "Space Loneliness", "Retrospect/East Of The Sun", "Early Autumn", "Hocus Pocus", "Prelude To A Kiss", and "Space Is The Place/We Travel The Spaceways".

Really wonderful work from Sun Ra – a host of recordings cut at the Ann Arbor Blues & Jazz Fest in the early 70s – always a very welcoming audience for the Arkestra at the time! We're not sure what was in the water, but it always seems like the group really hit their stride at the festival – opening up with a force and intensity that really goes past some of their other recordings! It's almost as if the enthusiastic mix of ages and cultures present really ignited the best energies in the Arkestra – having them hit the kind of righteous crescendo of their best Space Is The Place identity – and even some of the more avant, outside moments have a focus that the group hardly seems to reach this well! The material is from the John Sinclair archives – originally issued on the CDs Life Is Splendid, Outer Space Employment Agency, and It Is Forbidden – but somehow sounding even more amazing in a tight package like this – with loads of amazing keyboards from Ra, soulful vocals from June Tyson, Cheryl Banks, and Judith Holton, and wonderful supporting reeds from the Arkestra. Titles include "Space Is The Place", "Enlightenment", "What Planet Is This", "Immeasurable", "Love In Outer Space", "Watusi", "Images", and some great untitled improvisations. CD

✨✧ Mark RibowskyDreams To Remember – Otis Redding, Stax Records & The Transformation Of Southern Soul (hardcover) ... Book
Liveright, 2015. New Copy ... $8.99 27.95
A hefty book on the great Otis Redding – one of the best soul singers of all time, even though he left this planet all too soon! Redding's career on record was less than a decade long, but marked by a huge amount of work – not just time in the studio, with the legendary Stax Records – but also countless hours on the road, where Otis honed his talents and perfected his craft – while additionally putting both himself and his talents at risk. Author Mark Ribowsky looks at these years in wonderful depth – mostly with a focus on Redding, but also a strong look at Stax as well – as the partnership between the two was one of the most important in soul music at the time, and continues to have an impact all these many years later. Book is 366 pages, with copious notes at the end – hardcover, and with some black and white images. Book

Capitol/Right Stuff, 1970s. Used 2 CDs ... $24.99
Finally – the first major collection of work by Minnie Riperton, one of our favorite-ever soul singers! Minnie's had a lasting influence on the music that matters to us – from her early work as a girl group singer in Chicago, to her groundbreaking baroque soul in the group Rotary Connection, to her monumental smooth soul sides of the 70s. This massive 35 track, 2CD set collects songs from all these aspects of Minnie's tragically short career – and it's the first to give a true picture of the rich body of work that she waxed during her all-too-brief time on this planet. Not only does the set feature stunning tracks from her landmark albums on Epic during the 70s – like "Perfect Angel", "Adventures In Paradise", "Baby This Love I Have", "Inside My Love", "Memory Lane", "Loving You", "Reasons", and "Young Willing & Able" – but it also includes work from her earlier years at Chess/Cadet – like the tracks "Lonely Girl", "Respect", "You Gave Me Soul", "I Took A Ride", "Les Fleur", "Completeness", and "We're Going Wrong". Plus, you even get a few duets – like "Light My Fire", recorded with Jose Feliciano, "Here We Go", done with Peabo Bryson, and "Lovin You", cut live with George Benson. There's also a demo of "Seeing You This Way", plus some studio dialog! It's been ages since anyone's recognized Minnie's genius this way – but the wait has been worth it! CD

The rhythm section is great – with Mulgrew Miller on long spiraling piano lines, Stafford James on bass, and Tony Reedus on drums – and Steve Turre's also in the group, blowing both trombone and that unique shell of his.

Chris Bell is one of the great mysterious figures in 70s underground rock – a key part of Big Star during that group's short run, a solo artist who produced some amazing music that was years ahead of its time, and a tragic figure who was taken from our planet all too soon! Like Gram Parsons, Nick Drake, and a handful of others – Bell's genius has only gotten full appreciation in the years after his death – with a musical legacy that just seems richer and richer the more people poke into it – as is his personal story as well.

Chip lists both of these musicians as key influence in the notes, and we can definitely hear that in the music, too – which is a mix of modal groovers and more spacious numbers that blossom with Strata East-like energy – all handled by a great quartet that features Chip on both flute and tenor, plus Gabriel Casanova on piano, David Salvador on bass, and Antonio Pax on both drums and vibes. The music also has some hip European echoes – with styles that recall older work by Harold McNair on the flute numbers, or maybe the best of the Saba/MPS acoustic years.
