Andrew PoppyBeating Of Wings ... LP
ZTT (UK), 1985. Very Good+ ... $11.99
Minimalism for the mainstream – courtesy of Andrew Poppy, composer in residence at ZTT Records in the 80s! Poppy's approach is an unusual one – a style that takes the earlier experiments in minimalism by Philip Glass, Steve Reich, and others – and forges them for a wider audience more attuned to production and arranging styles from the post-punk years. Although ZTT was mostly a pop label – home to Art Of Noise, Propaganda, and others – Poppy got relatively free reign to create some larger compositions during his stay there – album-length sets that brought together earlier minimalism with some of the creeping arty styles of the 80s generation that ZTT was helping to forge. Think of his work as the real "art" of the Art Of Noise camp – and revel in the 80s take on minimalism that was such a big part of Poppy's work! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Poppy FamilyWhich Way You Goin' Billy/Poppy Seeds ... CD
London/Granadilla (Germany), 1969/1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sweet and groovy pop from The Poppy Family – a group that's probably best known for the fact that it included Terry Jacks before he went onto big fame with his solo hit "Seasons in the Sun". Terry's wife Susan sings on most of the cuts, and the album's got a nice feel that mixes folk rock and sunshine pop – heard to biggest fame in the album's great title cut, "Which Way You Goin Billy". The album's got some nicely trippy elements at times – used in a way that's pop psych, but with some acoustic currents – and other cool tunes include "Free From the City", "Beyond the Clouds", "There's No Blood In Bone", "Happy Island", and "Of Cities & Escapes". CD also adds in the more obscure 1971 album by the group – Poppy Seeds – with titles that include "Good Friends", "Winter Milk", "So Used To Loving You", "I Was Wondering", "I Started Loving You Again", and "Where Evil Grows".

✨✧ Barry MilesBarry Miles ... LP
Poppy, 1970. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the best sets ever from keyboardist Barry Miles – a record done with a gentle mix of electric and acoustic instrumentation, but still in a richly organic way that's filled with lyrical touches! Barry himself plays both acoustic and electric piano – and instrumentation includes guitar from Jack Wilkins, conga from Ray Barretto, and some nice woodwind shading alongside the trumpet of Lew Soloff – a sound that makes for many gentle colors alongside the harder grooves, and a style that's subtler than many of Miles' contemporaries. Tracks include the nice bassline-grooving "Take Your Clothes", which has a great gentle funk approach and some nicely-flattened electric keys – plus "New Derivatives", "Alone", "Contrasts", and "Hijack".

Aaron LightmanAaron Lightman ... LP
Poppy, 1969. Very Good+ ... $14.99
A straight up gorgeous lost album of pastoral psych folk from Aaron Lightman – and an odd, but pretty beautiful blend of troubadour style songs that are all deeply fleshed out in soaring instrumental interludes! These passages pillow Aaron's airy guitar and voice tunes within or around some pretty soaring strings that lend a quality that's somehow disjointed and calming at the same time. They often get quite orchestral, but Aaron's decisively earthy songcraft somehow grounds all of this grandeur quite beautifully! Titles include "Out Of The Morning", "They Call Me Traveler", "On Monday Me", "Little Girl", "Now Is The Time" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Johannes Bauer & Peter BrotzmannBlue City – Live At Blue City Osaka – October 1997 ... CD
Trost (Austria), 1997. New Copy ... $16.99
A fantastic lost performance – only recently discovered by Peter Brotzmann in his tape archive – and a long-overdue presentation of a series of live duets with trombonist Johannes Bauer! The pair work together in a way that's almost like the best early spare sets on FMP – really taking the time to find each others spaces and sounds on some of the shorter tracks – while then also blowing us away with their instant sympathy for each other on the leadoff improvisation – which runs for almost a full 30 minutes! Bauer's always been one of the more overlooked phraseologists on the trombone, and he really shines here in the company of Brotzmann's alto, tenor, b flat clarinet, and tarogato – on titles that include "Name That Thing", "Hot Mess", "Poppy Cock", "Heard & Seen", and "Blue City".

✨✧ Copper Plated Integrated CircuitPlugged In Pop ... LP
Command, 1969. Very Good Gatefold ... $9.99
Very cool moog album with a Perry-Kingsley feel. That is, it's got sort of a sharp electronic sound, but with grooviness underneath that keeps the whole thing going along at a jaunty pace. At times, the electronic sounds will break down into a bunch of noise, and then jump into a swingin' poppy track, then break down again. Lots of nice original stuff, like "Resonant Circuit", "Circuit Breaker", and "Jazz Waltz Circuit" – plus a few covers. LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol/Virgin, 1995. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $31.99 35.99
A record that was an instant classic from the moment it was first released – and a set that's still pretty darn pleasing all these many years later! At a time when mainstream soul was often too smooth or too poppy, D'Angelo came along and not only found a way to return the music to the years of its power with singers like Al Green or Marvin Gaye – but also managed to bring in some of the best hip hop elements of his generation too, at a level that was far more successful than most other blends that had been tried before! Production is nice and lean, and super-crispy – at a level that so many folks are still copying all these years later – and the set's full of classics that include "Cruisin", "When We Get By", "Smooth", "Me & Those Dreamin Eyes Of Mine", "Brown Sugar", "Alright", and "Jonz In My Bonz".

Louis De Funes (Raymond Lefevre)Louis De Funes Vol 1 ... CD
Play Time (France), Mid 60s. Used ... $2.99
Very nicely produced compilation of tracks from the mid 60's French comedies of actor Louis De Funes. Most of the material on here is from his "Gendarme" series of films, and all of the tracks are composed by Raymond Lefevre, with a tight groovy mid 60's sound. There's lots of poppy twist and groove numbers, with a loud brassy sound that's just perfect for comedic chase and action scenes, of the type that cropped up quite a bit in these films. The CD's got a whopping 41 titles, from a total of 10 different films – and the whole thing's packaged in a very nice slipcase, with a full color booklet that has images, poster reproductions, and other information from the films.

DelfonicsLa La Means I Love You/Sound Of Sexy Soul (plus bonus track) ... CD
Philly Groove/Kent (UK), 1968/1969. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
Amazing work by The Delfonics – their first 2 albums, back to back on a single CD! La La Means I Love You is a landmark album in harmony soul – one of those records that pushed the genre to a whole new level! The Delfonics emerge fully formed here as one of the most compelling groups of their time – a tremendous trio with a really unique approach to soul music – one that's heartfelt and heartbreaking, but never too sweet to be cloying or poppy – definitely just the right groove to keep things hip while also cracking the charts! The album's their first full collaboration with legendary producer Thom Bell – and it's got a sound that's summed up perfectly in the quintessential cut "La La Means I Love You" – and which is followed through beautifully on a batch of tracks that includes "Losing You", "Can You Remember", "You're Gone", "I'm Sorry", and "Break Your Promise". Sound Of Sexy Soul is an equally groundbreaking album of vocal group soul – right from the first note! The record kicks off with the sublime "Ready Or Not, Here I Come" – which starts with fierce stepping strings that are actually funky, then soars into some of the best harmonies the group ever put to record, superbly arranged by the great Thom Bell, who also wrote the track. As the album progresses, the sound expands further to encompass many elements that would become the blueprint for vocal groups over the next few years – like twangy electric sitar, cascading orchestrations, and pinched lead vocals that take a lot more chances than most group singers had been taking for years! There's still a bit of a 60s soul sound to some of the cuts, but the album's a watershed – not only for Thom Bell and the group, but for harmony soul as well! Titles include "Ready Or Not Here I Come", "My New Love", "Loving Him", "With These Hands", "Somebody Loves You", and "Everytime I See My Baby". CD also features the bonus track "You Got Yours & I'll Get Mine". CD

Super Mama DjoboSuper Mama Djobo ... LP
New Dawn (Netherlands), 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99
Rare work from this important Guinean combo – music recorded in Lisbon at the start of the 80s, and issued here on vinyl for the first time ever! The work has all the sharp, rootsy edges we love in their other releases – but there's also a clarity of recording that really lets some of the best elements come through – especially the incredible interplay on guitar, which is woven through the rhythms in this rich tapestry of sound – with lots of brilliantly breakout moments too. Vocals are sung in unison, which furthers the righteous spirit of the record – and although recorded in Europe, there's no attempt to commercialize the music or make it poppy at all. Titles include "Panseau Na Isna", "Marietu Djeme", "Manobra Da Pequena", "Wai Nene", and "Nambia". LP, Vinyl record album

Joey HeathertonJoey Heatherton Album (limited edition with bonus tracks) ... CD
MGM/Hip-O Select, 1965/1972. Used ... $19.99
Was there a sexier 70s celebrity than Joey Heatherton? It's hard to think so – and the cover of this one is more than enough proof that she was America's greatest answer to Brigitte Bardot! And while we certainly remember her from countless variety show appearances at the time, it's actually a bit hard to remember her as a singer (something that's due, no doubt, to the fact that we were so busy looking – not listening!) This great Hip-O set nicely corrects that fact – by bringing together Joey's full 10 track MGM album from 1972, plus some even more obscure singles recorded for Coral and Decca in the mid 60s! The Joey Heatherton Album was done in a sexy sort of 70s pop mode – slight country touches on a few tunes, but mostly glistening adult-styled backings from the team of Tony Scotti and Tommy Oliver. Tunes on that one include "God Only Knows", "It's Not Easy", "Right Or Wrong", "I'm Sorry", "Gone", "Say Hello", and "Someone To Watch Over Me". But almost even better are the rare early singles – 11 more numbers recorded in the mid 60s, and done in a trumpeting girl pop style that actually has plenty of traces of the Brit female sound of the time. Joey's really really great on these numbers – perky, poppy, and still ultra-sexy! Titles include "That's How It Goes", "Live & Learn", "Tomorrow Is Another Day", "My Blood Runs Cold", "Growing Up Is Learning To Say Goodbye", and "But He's Not Mine". CD

Epic, 1982. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $16.99
Arguably the last true moment of genius in Michael Jackson's career – a record that sold a bazillion copies around the world – and for plenty good reason! Michael's still working here with Quincy Jones – in territory that steps nicely from the Off The Wall groove, into territory that's somewhat more poppy, but still quite soulful overall. And yes, the success of the album meant that cuts like "Billie Jean", "Thriller", and "Beat It" got plenty of play – thanks to both heavy radio and video rotation – but a few decades later, there's still a tremendous amount of depth here – on great cuts like "Human Nature", "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin", and "PYT" – which all hold up nicely!

Jack JonesWhere Love Has Gone/My Kind Of Town ... CD
Kapp/Universal (UK), 1964/1965. Used ... $14.99
2 60s gems from the Kapp years of singer Jack Jones – back to back on a single CD! Where Love Has Gone is subtle magic from Jack – the kind of record that's made him one of our favorite singers from the 60s, and a set that's right up there with the best albums by Tony Bennett! Jack's not nearly as dramatic as Bennett in his earlier years, but he's got a similarly fluid quality – a voice that's clearly tuned on jazz, but handled with straighter interpretation – set to backings that are neither too poppy nor too romantic, sometimes rare for male singers of the time. Backings are by Pete King, who uses lush strings, and Harry Betts, who brings in a bit more jazz – and titles include "Here's That Rainy Day", "Where Love Has Gone", "What's New", "The Lorelei", "By Myself", "To Love & Be Loved", "Lush Life", "Guess I'll Hang My Tears Out To Dry", and "Willow Weep For Me". My Kind Of Town is a set that's pulled from sessions recorded over a few years in the early 60s – under the direction of arrangers Glenn Osser, Don Costa, and Marty Paich – all of whom bring a slightly different twist to his music! The styles are a bit varied, but in a way that shows Jack's great command of many modes – and given that there's a three-year duration between the first recording and the last on the set, the record acts almost like a portrait of Jones' evolution during the time. Titles include "Yes I Can", "I'm All Smiles", "Time After Time", "King Of The Road", "Travellin On", "My Kind Of Town", and "Somewhere Along The Way". CD

JuicyIt Takes Two ... LP
Epic, 1985. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Probably the biggest album ever from the brother/sister team of Katreese and Jerry Barnes – working here as Juicy, in a sweet smooth 80s groove style that's mighty nice! Deodato produced the album, and it's similar to some of the other soul material he was handling in the 80s – slick and sparkling, but with a sweet jazzy touch that keeps things a lot more real than on other soul albums from the time. The Barnes siblings handle all vocals and instruments – and the record has a sweet poppy duet style that's perhaps a bit dated, but also kind of due for a revival. Features the group's great slow jam hit "Sugar Free", with lots of excellent bass pedal jamming – plus "Stay With Me", "Slow Dancing", "It Takes Two", and "Nobody But You". LP, Vinyl record album

Evelyn Champagne KingSmooth Talk (2nd pressing) ... LP
RCA, 1977. Very Good+ ... $5.99
Wonderfully smooth soul from Evelyn Champagne King – one of her real standouts from the early days, and a tremendous collaboration with producer/arranger T Life! The sound here is upbeat and catchy, but never too poppy – done with a slight hint of that groove that King would hit more famously in the 80s, but served up here with a deeper sense of warmth, and a slightly more laidback feel. King is classy without being cloying – just like a sip of the right sort of champagne – and T Life's backings often have a slight undercurrent of funk. Titles include the club classic "Shame" – plus "Smooth Talk", "Til I Come Off The Road", "Dancin, Dancin, Dancin", "Nobody Knows", "We're Going To A Party", and "The Show Is Over".

KrystolPassion From A Woman (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Epic/FTG, 1986. Used ... $4.99
Poppy passion from Krystol – a sweet 80s trio with a definite way with a hook! The set's got a well-balanced mainstream sound – one that helps the vocals find a fullness right away, either on the leads or harmonies – both woven together over the top of the tight, beat-heavy grooves! At points, there's almost a retro vibe – as if an older girl trio mode's being revived for a new 80s scene – but with a definite contemporary spin. There's a decidedly commercial appeal to the sound – but Krystol were also never too overplayed back in the day, which makes the album a nice discovery – and a great surprise when you start digging through all the potential singles on the set. Tracks include "Love Attack", "Passion From A Woman", "He's So Jive", "Baby Make Up Your Mind", "Scared Single", and "Precious Precious". CD features bonus tracks too – "Passion From A Woman (ext)", "Passion From A Woman (acapella)", "Passion From A Woman (radio)", "Passion From A Woman (dub)", "Passion From A Woman (7" version)", and "Precious Precious (7" version)".

✨✧ James LastBeachparty 3 ... LP
Polydor (Germany), Early 70s. Very Good ... $4.99
A sunny sort of groove party from German Maestro James Last! Last had already been turning out lots of instrumental pop for the German scene in the 60s – but he reinvented his sound a bit with these classic Beachparty records from the early 70s – going for a groove that's upbeat and swinging, still with some of the brassy punch of before – but also adding in more tropical elements on percussion, and very effectively using a mixed male/female vocal group to add lyrics to the tunes! The singers are well-chosen – from British groups like Brotherhood Of Man, The Breakaways, and The Ladybirds – and vocals are all in English, with a sing-song sort of playfulness that might well be called a precursor to the sound of ABBA. And the music here is definitely in the same spirit of ABBA, too – poppy and catchy, as the Last crew take on lots of familiar hits of the day, and recast them into their own sort of groove.

A very groovy singer – with a really wonderful feel! Birgit hails from Denmark, and has the icy Scandinavian jazz vocal approach of singers like Monica Zetterlund or Karin Krog – equally well suited to standard jazz material, as it is to electric oriented tunes or bossa nova, both of which appear on this set! The overall style is almost in a Sergio Mendes Brasil 66 style – light poppy touches at times, bubbling with a bit of bossa and some cool grooves laid out on organ and piano, with some occasional backing vocals on a few tracks. Groovy sunshine pop from the Baltic scene of the early 70s – with tracks that include versions of "Sunny", "Pretty World", "Fool On The Hill", "Melting Pot", "Make It With You", "Gimme Little Sign", and "Sometimes".

Matt MonroThis Is The Life/Here's To My Lady ... CD
Capitol/EMI (UK), 1966. Used ... $7.99
Mid 60s magic from Matt Monro – two albums back to back on one CD, both showing the growing sophistication in Matt's music at the time! This Is The Life has Monro singing with arranger Sid Feller – a surprisingly great talent for the record, and one who does a great job of hitting that subtly dramatic mode that we love in Matt's vocals. Feller nicely restrains some of his usual tricks, and takes Monro to the same sort of sophisticated, adult space in pop that Nancy Wilson was hitting for Capitol at the time – a bit jazzy, sometimes poppy, but never in a way that's gimmicky or aimed at the kids. Titles include "Honey On The Vine", "Merci Cheri", "Sweet Lorraine", "On A Wonderful Day Like Today", "I'm Glad There Is You", "This Is The Life", "On A Clear Day", and "My Best Girl". Here's To My Lady reunites Matt Monro with arranger Sid Feller – in a warmly swirling mix that's perfect 60s crooner material! Monro takes off from territory that Sinatra was hitting during his Reprise years – but delivers the work with even a bit more care and grace – letting the words just slip out effortlessly, in a way that's completely sublime, and which sounds great on both new songs and old. Titles include "You've Got Possibilities", "Nina Never Knew", "The Good Life", "Real Live Girl", "When Joanna Loved Me", "When Sunny Gets Blue", and "Rain Sometimes". CD

Ed MottaEntre E Ouca (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Warner/Polysom (Brazil), 1992. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
Early soul material from the great Ed Motta – a record that really has the Brazilian singer hitting his stride! Ed's a singer that we've loved for many years, and await eagerly for each new record – but this early 90s set is one of his first great musical moments, a set that has him really finding his voice, and following strongly in the Brazilian soul tradition of his famous uncle, Tim Maia! And although Motta had worked in some more beat-heavy, poppy modes on previous records, this one has a much richer vibe – and shows the love of older 70s styles that would reemerge later on his seminal AOR set – done here with leaner, more stripped down modes that are mighty nice. The songwriting is great – and Motta's voice, as always, is incredible – and the instrumentation features a fair bit of Fender Rhodes and acoustic piano, which really further the warmth of the vocals. Titles include "Bem Longe", "Agora Que O Dia Accordou", "Entre E Ouca", "A Vontade", and "Se Ate As 11". LP, Vinyl record album

The sound is mighty nice – exactly what you'd guess from the title – the best sort of funky Euro disco style of the time, with some sweet harmony vocals that almost have a Bee Gees vibe – yet never nearly as poppy as their disco tunes! There's a warmth here that marks the Paris in contrast to other European club sounds of the time – and attention to lyrics that goes way past the usual "let's throw a singer at some grooves" – especially on the album's mellower cuts. Titles include "Partners", "Friday", "Dance", "Green Eyes", and "Love Meant To Be". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousC88 (3CD set) ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), 1988. New Copy 3CD ... $22.99
The third great volume in this wonderful series that looks at the huge explosion of British indie rock in the mid 80s – and a collection that maybe compiles tracks from the last great year of the scene! Not that British music stopped dead in its tracks – but the following year saw dance/house come in from surprising corners, and many groups either hit big commercial fame, or step sideways into other modes – which maybe made 1988 the last great year for guitar-driven, sharply-penned tracks like these! As with other projects of this nature from Cherry Red, the presentation is wonderful – loads of tracks in a 5" square box, with a big bonus book of notes too – all delivering a lot of greatness in a tiny package. The set features 71 tracks in all – and titles include "The Camera Loves Me" by Would Be Goods, "Clear" by Whirl, "On Tape" by the Pooh Sticks, "Lies" by Bridewell Taxis, "One Summer" by Moss Poles, "Tattered Tangled & Torn" by Bradford, "Creamation Town" by The Poppyheads, "High" by Choo Choo Train, "Elephant Stone (7" version)" by The Stone Roses, "Mary's Garden" by Mock Turtles, "Ballad Of Jet Harris" by Apple Boutique, "Heaven Knows" by The Flatmates, "They Fell For Words Like Love" by Hangman's Beautiful Daughters, "Prize" by Kitchens Of Distinction, "Shame On You" by The Darling Buds, "Dying For It" by The Vaselines, "Curry Crazy" by Bad Dream Fancy Dress, "Glastonbury" by Rodney Allen, "Shake" by The Corn Dollies, "Cubans In The Bluefields" by East Village, "Who Works The Weather" by The Great Leap Forward, and "Sun Sea Sand" by The Revolving Paint Dream.

VariousLe Beat Bespoke Vol 2 – Tailor Made Cuts Compiled By Rob Bailey ... LP
Circle (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $15.99
Funky mod grooves galore – and a sublime second set in the Le Beat Bespoke series! This one is even better than the first – and seems to dig even deeper in the crates to come up with a range of rare singles from around the globe – all dripping with heavy drums, fuzzy guitars, and sweet sweet Hammond organ work! Many numbers have vocals, and most are from the rockish side of the spectrum – but they've all got a romping, grooving bottom end that more than makes them a little bit funky – usually in a groove that's way different than the sort you'd find on other funky compilations! The notes are great, the tracks are amazing, and the CD's one of the freshest funky sets to hit our racks in a long long time. LP features 16 titles that include "Madeline" by Dick Turpin, "Dude" by Poppys Haunted House, "Springtime" by Jimmy Thomas, "One Two Boogaloo" by The Light Nites, "Little Louise" by Shere Khan, "I Found You" by The Tops, "You Know He Did" by Mary McCarthy, "Rouge Rouge" by Christie Luame, "Truth In My Tears" by Louisa Jane White, "Berlin" by Heidi Bruhl, and "Run Shaker Life" by Paul Nicholas.
