Clarinet SummitClarinet Summit Vol 2 – In Concert At The Public Theater ... LP
India Navigation, 1984. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A genius idea – almost like the World Sax Quartet, but even more groundbreaking, in that the group unites 2 older players (Alvin Batiste and Jimmy Hamilton) with 2 younger players from the forefront of modern jazz (John Carter and David Murray). The result is wonderful – a record that will forever change your expectations of the sound of the clarinet in jazz, and which shows that reed work from a variety of generations can be equally influential across a variety of scenes. 7 numbers in all, including "Clariflavors", "Mood Indigo", "Night Mist Blue", "Creole Love Call", "Waltz A Minute", "Solo & Ballad For Four Clarinets", and "Satin Doll".

The mindblowing third album from Public Enemy – their second straight up masterpiece in a row – a more densely-layered effort than anything they'd down before or since!

Amazing! Decades later, it's as exciting as ever. Includes classics like "Fight The Power", Burn Hollywood Burn", "Welcome To The Terrordome", "Power To The People", "911 Is A Joke" "Revolutionary Generation", "Can't Do Nuttin For Ya Man", "Reggie Jax", "War At 33 1/3" and more.

Public Enemy, EU & OthersDo The Right Thing – Soundtrack ... LP
Motown, 1989. Near Mint- ... $16.99
The classic soundtrack to Spike Lee's Do The Right Thing – lead, of course, by Public Enemy's "Fight The Power" – and beyond that is a pretty wonderful, and not always as intense cross-section of some of the finer urban soul and New Jack Swing, circa '89, breezy vocal-centric R&B, a touch of Latin and Afro-Carribbean pop. The Bed-Stuy melting pot bubbles over to tragic consequences in the film, but the diverse soundtrack is plenty harmonious, and sounds fresh to this day. Includes "My Fantasy" by Teddy Riley featuring Guy, "Never Explain Love" by Al Jarreau, "Party Hearty" by EU, "Tu Y Yo" by Ruben Blades, "Can't Stand It" by Steel Pulse and "Don't Shoot Me" by Take 6.

Public Image Ltd.Flowers Of Romance (180 gram red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Island/4 Men With Beards, 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99 23.99
A bold move forward for Public Image Ltd – a set recorded after bassist Jah Wobble left the group – and John Lydon and company made an abrupt shift from bass-heavy dub to a highly percussive mode! With Wobble gone, Keith Levene is even more of a presence here – bringing some amazing drums into play, as well as some very dark guitar – at moments when additional drums were provided by Martin Adkins. The trio lineup is amazing – very raw, earthy, and stripped-down – and the bass is hardly missed with the album's very strong use of drums. Titles include "Four Enclosed Walls", "Track 8", "Flowers Of Romance", "Under The House", "Hymie's Him", "Banging The Door", "Go Back" and "Francis Massacre". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Public Image Ltd.Second Edition (180 gram clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
Island/4 Men With Beards, 1979. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the greatest moments ever from the mighty John Lydon – a record that maybe blows away all other albums by Public Image – and which also stands strongly next to the work of the Sex Pistols, but in a very different way! Lydon is quite far from punk rock roots here – and instead works in this bassy, dubby, trippy blend that's served up strongly by the bass work of Jah Wobble – very influenced by Jamaican music, but playing in a style that's got a very different vibe – and quite different from more familiar late 70s attempts to mix punk and reggae. Instead, Wobble and Lydon use the mode as this dark wash of sound – sparkling with weird guitar sounds from Keith Levine, and layered with these haunting lyrics on madness and paranoia – much more dark poetry than anything Lydon ever gave us. The track "Poptones" is worth the price of the record alone – and other tiles include "Swan Lake", "No Birds", "Chant", "No Radio", "Albatross", "Careering", and "Memories". LP, Vinyl record album

William S BurroughsCall Me Burroughs ... LP
ESP/Superior Viaduct, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
The first-ever record to capture the amazing voice of William S Burroughs – the author who helped transform fiction forms in the 60s, but also somewhat of a public figure too – thanks to albums like this! The set's was recorded in France, and given wider circulation in the US by seminal indie ESP Records – and the record presents Burroughs reading from his important novels Naked Lunch and The Nova Express. There's less of the cutup and experimental recordings of other later Burroughs records – but given that the books were both written under the influence of those modes, even the reading of the text still has a very unusual quality – especially given the author's incredible voice.

One of the two quartet sessions that Ornette cut for Blue Note in the late 60's – and tight mature work like the New York Is Now sides, recorded in the company of Dewey Redman and the Coltrane rhythm section of Jimmy Garrison and Elvin Jones, which offers a contrasting perspective to most of the preceding Coleman groups. Ornette plays alto and trumpet, as he was doing around that time, and Redman's playing is amongst his finest on record. Four tunes: the title track, "Airborne", "Check Out Time", and "Open To The Public". CD includes 3 bonus alternate takes, too! CD

✨✧ Buddy Collette with Irene KralBuddy Collette Quintet Featuring Irene Kral ... CD
Studio West, 1962. Used ... $5.99
Wonderful work from both Buddy Collette and Irene Kral – initially recorded for the Navy Swings radio show in the early 60s, and finally presented here to the public on CD! The tracks all feature Buddy's early 60s quintet with Al Viola on guitar and Jack Wilson on piano – and Buddy himself is very strongly the lead soloist in the set, stepping away from some of the more tightly arranged modes of his albums of the 50s, and hitting some wonderfully spontaneous moments on flute, clarinet, tenor, and alto sax. Wilson's piano is as lovely and lyrical as on his best albums as a leader from the time, and provides perfect accompaniment to Kral on the album's vocal tracks – which comprised 6 of the CD's total 14 numbers. Kral tunes include "The Meaning Of The Blues", "Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most", "Detour Ahead", and "It's A Wonderful World" – and instrumental tunes include "A Taste Of Fresh Air", "Hunt & Peck", "Emaline's Theme", "Road Trip", and "Soft Touch".

John CorbettSun Ra & Aye Aton – Space, Interiors, & Exteriors 1972 ... Book
Corbett vs. Dempsey, 2013. New Copy ... $4.99 27.99
Amazing images from the universe of Sun Ra – a mixture of rare photographs and mural images painted by Aye Aton – sometime percussionist with the Arkestra, and a heck of a great painter too! The book begins with these stunning full color photographs of Ra on the set of Space Is The Place – images from 1972 that echo the cover of the album of the same name, but which feature a costumed Ra in a number of different settings – including a few parking lot shots that make him look like a true visitor from the cosmos, briefly walking on our planet! The bigger second half of the book features photographs of murals painted by Aton (who's also known as Robert Underwood) – all of them spacey and trippy, and in a similar spirit to the Saturn Records album covers – except these were all painted on walls and ceilings, in very vivid colors. Aye painted many images in the Arkestra commune in Philly – and other paintings appear to be from the south side of Chicago – and all work here is seen by the wider public for the first time ever. Archivist John Corbett provides an essay with the book to situate the work – and the whole thing's a vivid visual treat for any fan of Sun Ra! Book

Andre CymoneAC (2CD version – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia/FTG, 1985. New Copy 2 CDs ... $14.99 15.98
The best of a handful of albums that the one-time Prince bassist put out in the early 80s – a record that made a splash via the great Prince-penned "The Dance Electric" – possibly a blessing and a curse for AC, as Prince was so huge at the time that the record going public was too quick to dismiss him as a clone! But don't let that stop you – as Cymone's got a groove that's all his own – and an 80s soul star definitely worth rediscovering. The percussive vibe is similar to Prince, but Andre's got a leaner, funkier style overall – virtually working as a one man band here, and handling most instrumentation himself – which brings a compact feel to the record that really comes through in the tightness of the grooves. Titles include "The Dance Electric", "Lipstick Lover", "Pretty Wild Lover", "Book Of Love", "Vacation", "Satisfaction", and "Neon Pussycat". Massive 2CD version features loads of bonus tracks – 20 more numbers that include lots of mixes of "The Dance Electric", "Satisfaction", and "Lipstick Lover" – plus "Vacation (Andre Cymone mix)", "Let Me Kiss The Bride (inst)", and "Anything (inst)".

Bill DixonBill Dixon Collection – Music For Solo Trumpet ... CD
Cadence, Early 70s. Used 2 CDs ... $16.99
Amazing sounds from the legendary Bill Dixon – 2CDs worth of solo trumpet performances, all recorded at Bennington College in the early 70s! Dixon's a player we've always found to be richly creative – but here, working without any other instrumentation at all, he really blows our mind – stretching out in different sonic textures and tones that seem to encompass a whole range of avant trumpet expression – almost a bold challenge to contemporaries like Leo Smith, Manfred Schoof, Harry Beckett, and others – but a private one, too – given that these original recordings were never designed for public consumption. There's some great echo used at points, which Dixon really plays with by creating some noise with his tone – and titles include "I See Your Fancy Footwork", "When Winter Comes", "Webern Work/Study", "Tracings", "Summerdance For Judith Dunn", "Masques 1", and "Swirls".

Gil EvansOut Of The Cool/Into The Hot ... CD
Impulse (Germany), 1960/1961. New Copy ... $11.99
Two formative albums from Gil Evans – back to back on a single CD! Out Of The Cool is a pivotal session for Gil Evans – one that brought his genius to the American public strongly and successfully, without the help of Miles Davis! Sure, Gil had recorded albums as a leader before this one – but the sparkling quality of this set is right up there with the charts he handled for Miles, and the quality of the players in the group make the performance every bit as great. Gil's band includes trumpeter Johnny Coles, plus Ron Carter on bass, Elvin Jones on drums, Budd Johnson on tenor, and Ray Crawford on guitar. Titles include "Stratusphunk", "Sunken Treasure", "La Nevada", and a great reading of Kurt Weil's "Bilbao Song". Into The Hot is the harder of the two Gil Evans albums on Impulse to find, and the best – really far-reaching material that has Evans coming into contact with some of the hippest jazz players of his generation! The record's got three incredible tracks written by Cecil Taylor – a very bold move for Evans, given Taylor's strongly out reputation even at this point in his career – and possibly even more bold, given that Taylor's on the tracks playing piano, alongside players who include Archie Shepp, Jimmy Lyons, Sonny Murray, and Henry Grimes. The material's fantastic, and is a key part of Taylor's work at the time, and shows a very different setting for his piano – a bit of tension with the larger Evans group, in a way that's almost more compelling than his own early dates as a leader! Taylor titles include "Pots", "Bulbs", and "Mixed". The other tracks on the album were written by John Carisi, who wrote the classic "Israel" for Miles Davis' nine piece group in the late 40s – but who here contributes "Moon Taj", "Angkor Wat", and "Barry's Tune". Carisi's tracks are a bit more subdued, but no less wonderful – and arrangements are by Taylor and Carisi, of their own music, presented with the Evans modern touch. If you ever needed a record to convince you that Gil Evans was a genius, this is it! CD

✨✧ Vivien GoldmanResolutionary – Songs 1979 to 1982 ... CD
99 Records/Staubgold (Germany), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $16.99
A wonderful collection of overlooked work from Vivien Goldman – a singer who's perhaps best known for her work in Flying Lizards, but who also had ties to other important post-punk acts of the time – including The Slits, On-U Sound, and Public Image – all of whom help out on these tracks! The music has a sweet blend of dubby rhythms and some colder currents too – and Goldman's lyrics are often a bit more personal than her music with Flying Lizards although no less compelling, too. John Lydon, Steve Beresford, and Keith Levene provide instrumentation on the first three tracks – "Lauderette", "Private Armies", and "PA Dub" – from an EP that was released on Rough Trade and 99 Records. Next up are the tracks "Her Story" and "The Window" – done by The Flying Lizards, with work from Beresford on piano and Viv Albertine on guitars. Last are three tracks from Goldman's work with Chantage – even dubbier, with some help from Adrian Sherwood, on titles that include "It's Only Money", "Same Thing Twice", and "Tu M'Fais Rire". CD also includes a bonus interview! CD

Gregory Isaacs' name is on the cover – but the dub component here means that there's maybe a bit less vocals in the mix – as the album's the dub companion to Gregory's late 70s classic Cool Ruler! This set is much more focused on the excellent instrumental work – laid down by the Revolutionaries, with rhythms from Sly & Robbie, and keyboards from Ansel Collins – all mixed beautifully by a young Prince Jammy, at King Tubby's studio! The use of echo and odd electric bits at the edges is completely sublime – and titles include "Slum", "Reform Institution", "Tam Tam", "Leaving", "Public Eyes", and "Leggo Beast". CD

The classic first album by The JBs – James Brown's Fred Wesley-led backing band, and the force behind most of his greatest records of the early 70s! The band are incredible at this point – sharper, harder, and funkier than just about any other combo around – and that includes all the thousands of groups in the funky 45 underground who were always trying to copy their sound, but never got things this right! Not only are the rhythms the stuff of legend – but the use of the instruments is far far above the norm – as can be heard on the mindblowing "The Grunt", which was sampled heavily by Public Enemy to great fame – and which features a saxophone solo that sounds more like a whistling tea kettle! The set collects some of the group's best early singles, and includes all of the short little funky cuts that made them a legend right out of the box – "Pass the Peas", "The Grunt", "These Are The JBs", "Hot Pants Road", "Wine Spot", "To My Brother", "Blessed Blackness", "Theme From King Heroin", "Escapism (parts 1 & 2), and "Gimme Some More" – all together here in one tight little album of massive funky hard beats and breaks!

A great little book that shows a whole new side of 60s and 70s records for collectors to love – the original press ads and posters that were used to promote the music at the time! The book is Japanese, but it's filled with vintage images from the US as well – gorgeous ads from music publications, as well as publicity flyers too – all which offer up some unusual takes on the artists and records, and show some of the very cool styles that were used to break their music to the public. There's also often an image of a Japanese record on the page – most likely the original overseas release, next to the way the record was promoted in the US and UK – and the book is laid out chronologically, mostly with material from the 60s and 70s, but with a few bits from the 80s too.

✨✧ Roland KirkVolunteered Slavery ... LP
Atlantic, 1969. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Our favorite album ever from Roland Kirk – and a beautiful mix of two different sides of his genius! Side one's got Roland doing these crazy takes on late 60's pop cuts like "My Cherie Amour" and "Say a Little Prayer", plus his own "songs", done with soulful vocals and a straight-on approach that shows him trying to break out of the avant jazz underground, and reach a wider audience with a spiritual message on tracks like "Search For The Reason Why" and "Spirits Up Above". If this description sounds like a mess, it's not – because this side of the album is one of Kirk's most brilliant statements ever about jazz, soul, love and freedom! Side two has Roland in a straighter vein – running through a tight live set from Newport 1968, handled with fire and imagination, the kind of boundless energy he always brought to his public appearances. Tracks on that set include "One Ton", "Three For The Festival", "Afro Blue", and some great remarks by Roland! LP, Vinyl record album
(Red & green label pressing. Cover has a sticker spot.)

Lazy SmokeCorridor Of Faces (clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
Onyx/Jackpot, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $17.99
A creepy little trio from the late 60s scene in Massachusetts – one who cut this surprisingly wonderful album in 1968, but then only pressed up a few hundred copies for the public! There's plenty of fuzz on the guitars, and these guys definitely have a freewheeling sound when they want – especially when the solos take off – yet they also bring a surprisingly tuneful vibe to the set, too – and have a way of penning lyrics that are a lot deeper than the usual garage group of the period, which almost gives some moments a Millenium-like sort of charm. Titles include "Salty People", "How Was Your Day Last Night", "All These Years", "Sarah Saturday", "How Did You Die", and "Underskys". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited to 500 copies – on clear vinyl, with liner notes too!)

NWAEfil4zaggin (limited 3-D lenticular cover) ... LP
Ruthless, 1991. Near Mint- (reissue)... $19.99
A stone classic from the west coast scene – and a record that just seems to get better and better over the years! What sounded like a disappointing, and way too calculatedly provocative follow-up to Straight Outta Compton back in 1991 now sounds to us like the peak of Dr. Dre's career as a producer. The wall of sound here is massive – and dare we say it, almost up to par with the Bomb Squad's work with Public Enemy and the expatriate Ice Cube at the time. Plus, with the passing of the years, we can now find a lot more darkly humorous moments in all of the ultra-violent, damn near Clockwork Orange level mischief. Titles include "Real Niggaz Don't Die", "Niggaz 4 Life", "Appetite For Destruction", "Findum, F*ckum, & Flee", and many more. LP, Vinyl record album

PS Artbooks (UK), Early 50s. New Copy ... $11.99 69.99
Stunning work from the glory days of the 50s horror comic – issues of the legendary publication Adventures Into The Unknown – one of the first and most important comics to plumb the depths of supernatural and science fiction! The publication inspired countless imitators, but was always a cut above the rest – thanks to a careful editorial policy that really focused on strong stories and high quality artwork – at a level that makes these issues a delight to read all these many years later! This volume, like others in the PS Artbooks series, features beautiful color reproductions of issues that would cost you a fortune to buy in the original – all wrapped up in a high quality, hardcover package. Artists in these issues include Pete Riss, Ken Bald, King Ward, Lin Streeter, Carl Kiefer, Jerry Grandenti, Leonard Star, Ogden Whitney, and others – and stories include "When Time Turned Back", "Flight Of The Dead", "The Howling Hunters", "Case Of The Haunted Girl", "The Spectre In The Show Window", and lots lots more. 288 pages, hardcover, and full color.

Alessandro AlessandroniPanoramic Feeling + Le Film Trouve – A Panoramic Experience (clear vinyl pressing with bonus DVD) ... LP
Flipper/Dagored (Italy), 1971. New Copy LP & DVD ... $32.99
A beautiful sound library gem from the legendary Alessandro Alessandroni – recorded for the commercial Flipper label, and issued publicly here for the first time ever! The music is sublime – that side of Alessandroni that came closest to the bossa and vocal styles of Ennio Morricone in the late 60s – with lots of breezy rhythms at the bottom, and a blend of instrumental passages, wordless chorus lines from I Cantori Moderni, and even some of that famous whistling from Alessandroni himself! We especially love the chorus bits – as they almost feel like The Swingle Singers trying to follow an Edda Dell'Orso sort of pathy – blended here with cool keyboards, including some totally wonderful electric harpsichord! Titles include "Young Flirt", "Green Hills", "North Wind", "Car Drive", "White Sands", and "Love Feeling". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the DVD "Le Film Trouve – A Panoramic Experience" – featuring footage from amateur films from around the world!)

Captain FlashCaptain Flash Collected Works – November 1954 to July 1955 – Issues 1-4 (hardcover) ... Book
PS Artbooks (UK), Mid 50s. New Copy ... $10.99 47.99
The full run of Captain Flash – a very late, lesser-known Golden Age hero – but one who comes across surprisingly well in these four vintage issues! By the time of the mid 50s publication, comic standards had risen strongly in general – so that both scripting and art were often far better than bigger name books a decade before – especially given that the latter here was handled by top-shelf talents like Mort Meskin, Mike Sekowsky, and Edvard Moritz! The stories aren't earth-shaking, but they've got a surprising amount of Atomic Age charm – and, with his sidekick in tow, Captain Flash comes across a bit with the spirit of Simon & Kirby's Fighting American – but maybe a bit less humor overall. The book also features 2 issues of the horror magazine Tormented – from Sterling, the same publisher – with lots more art by Mike Sekowsky, along with Mike Roy and Bill Ely. A bit of horror, a lot of superhero, and 240 full color pages – which even reproduce the original covers and ads! Book

PS Artbooks (UK), 1952. New Copy ... $11.99 69.99
One of the best-remembered comics from the pre-code generation – a landmark publication that offered up top-notch science fiction and horror – at a level that really rose the bar for the rest of the industry! The stories are all great – creepy, but with a real sense of structure that packs a hell of a lot into an eight to ten page story – and the art is wonderful – that vivid, striking style you'd only find in the best of the early 50s horror comics. The printing style here is great, too – heavy pages, lush color, and a mode that's far better to read than any yellowing old comics – and a fair bit less expensive too! This volume features six full issues, over 250 pages in length, complete with all the original ads too – and artwork by the likes of Al Williamson, King Ward, Ken Bald, Lou Cameron, Harry Lazarus, Jay Disbrow, and others.

PS Artbooks (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... $10.99 47.99
A very unusual volume in this classic series – one that features the last half of the original cartoony take on Frankenstein by artist Dick Briefer, then follows with the re-worked series from 1952 – which moves into much more horror-based artwork overall! Briefer's original run is one of the weirdest, goofiest takes on the Frankenstein character ever created – as, rather than present the character in the traditional monstrous version, Briefer took Frankenstein into the same sort of territory as Herman Munster – kind of a comical figure who does more good than harm, with a surprisingly sweet demeanor that hardly belies his hulking physique! Briefer's art is great – very cartoony, but at an expressionist level that's almost in the territory of Milt Gross – and which has gotten him lots of acclaim over the years. Then, after shutting down in 1949, the series comes back in 1952 – the "second chapter" of Dick Briefer's classic Frankenstein comic – pulled from a time when the publication had left behind the cartoony style of Briefer's original run, and moved into much starker horror territory for the big early 50s boom in the format! The work here is much more gritty – with lead stories that are still about the main character, but which focus on some of his greater psychological complexity – mixed with supporting stories that are more in a 50s horror anthology mode – not filler, but excellent horror stories on a par with other work reprinted in these PS Artbooks series! Book is 224 pages, full color, and hardcover. Book

Gang Of FourSolid Gold (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Warner, 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 21.99
A stunning second set from the mighty Gang Of Four – and a record that's got all the power and politics of their famous Entertainment debut! The set's got some wonderfully heavy basslines amidst the scratchy guitar that makes the group so great – but nothing's too polished, certainly not as in their crossover club modes to come – and the call/response vocal style of Andy Gill and Jon King is tremendous – a very fresh way to deliver the message, and one that's still never been matched all these many years later. Titles include "Paralyzed", "What We All Want", "Why Theory", "If I Could Keep It For Myself", "Cheeseburger", "The Republic", "Outside The Trains Don't Run On Time", "In The Ditch", "A Hole In The Wallet", and "He'd Send In The Army".

Mississippi/Sahel Sounds, 2015. New Copy ... $14.99
Very cool keyboard work from this keyboardist from the Republic Of Niger – all work composed and created on a Yamaha PSR 64, but done with a style that really links back to older West African traditions too! The music is hardly the cold keyboards you might expect from the instrument – and instead layers these long-spiraling lines over rhythms in a way that's extremely hypnotic, and equally warm – almost taking us back to some of the cross-cultural experiments Brian Eno was doing with African musicians at the end of the 70s! All tracks are nice and long – and titles include "Tagout", "Torodi", "Atarghine", and "Khoumeissa". LP, Vinyl record album

A stunningly deep issue of Kicks magazine – the important precursor to Norton Records, and still one of the most thorough, well-written rock publications we can think of! This 7th issue features a huge article on garage legends The Trashmen – plus other underground rock legends Ron Haydock, Rudy Grayzell, Esquerita, Andy Starr, The Rock-A-Teens, and Iguanas – plus looks at Las Vegas Rock & Roll, and Mexican garage bands! Text is incredibly deep – and very playfully written, at a level that illuminates these musicians as much as later Norton reissues would do – and the issue is a whopping 100 pages, but reads like a full book.
