Public EnemyFear Of A Black Planet (2CD deluxe edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Def Jam, 1990. New Copy 2CD (reissue)... $27.99 29.98
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! Agitprop lyricism laced with soundbite samples from myriad sources that get the point over nearly as fiecely as Chuck's rhymes, and the densest, most dizzying Bomb Squad production ever laid down. 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. 2014 deluxe edition includes a bonus CD of remixes, B-sides, instrumentals and alternate version from the rare 12"s and more – plus new liner notes.

Public Enemy, EU & OthersDo The Right Thing – Soundtrack ... LP
Motown, 1989. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
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 ... CD
Warner, 1981. Used ... $5.99
Primitive, thumping drums that bring on some kind of blunt force hypnosis – only to get snapped back into hyper conscious tension by Lydon's menacing vocals – Public Image Ltd's post Jah Wobble Flowers Of Romance! Flowers isn't the legendary synthesis of punk & dub that Metal Box/Second Edition was, particularly since the dubby bits left with Jah Wobble, but it's still a tense, minimalist work of vibrant originality – and a record that stands to time incredibly well. Titles include "Four Enclosed Walls", "Track 8", "Flowers Of Romance", "Under The House", "Hymie's Him", "Banging The Door", "Go Back" and "Francis Massacre". CD

Sarah LinharesMessages From The Future ... CD
Public Transit (Canada), 2011. Used ... $4.99
Singer Sarah Linhare's has Messages From The Future – delivered via this sweet little set of spacey future soul! Sarah's voice pulls you in pretty quickly, with genuine soul. The production is by Kenlo Craqnuques and a couple of guests, who all manage to blend soft, airy atmoshere with some fairly thick beats and other denser textures. The sounds work well together and the songs are memorable, so this one works out pretty darn well! Moonstarr produces a couple tracks, with additional guests Think Twice, Wayne Tennant & Anthony Pageot. Titles include "Grapefruit", "Sarinha", "Other Side", "Dirty Business", "No Question", "Step Up", "Move Along", " I Get Scared" and "Only Human". CD

✨✧ VariousHappy Machine – Standard Music Library 1970 to 2010 ... LP
Standard/Public (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 2 LPs ... Out Of Stock
A very unusual set of sound library tracks – one that moves past the obvious funk of other collections, and goes instead for a range of great spacey sounds – served up here in early 70s recordings that are heavy on analogue electronics and other sweet touches, which then inspire greatness in decades to come! The music includes some surprising contributions from bigger names – like Beatles producer George Martin, or Brit arranger Mike Vickers – mixed with other artists who are even more experimental, and really make the most of the moog and other cool keyboards! The set's less happy than you might expect from the title – more trippy and almost spooky at times – on titles that include "Cathedral Of Space" by Brian Hodgson, "Arcadian Valley" by Reginald Lewis, "Haley's Largo" by John Keating, "Happy Soul" by Jim Lawless, "Headful Of Birds" by Mike Vickers, "The Seven Immortals" by Kirk Thompson, "On The Streets" by John Kongos, and "Eary Feary" by George Martin.

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

Portico (UK), 2011. New Copy ... $3.99 14.95
A much better book than you'd guess from the title – and a wealth of wonderful images from the biggest city in England! As with the similar New York volume, the book lays out snapshots of great little visual jokes in London – strange store signs, odd posters, mistakes on public buildings, weird graffiti, and more – all in this humorous portrait of the city! Images are full color, mostly shot by the author, and work together in a great way to build up their power as you flip through the book. Book

An hilarious set of images from contemporary New York – store signs, graffiti, posters, and other means of visual communication – some intentionally funny, some filled with mistakes and typos, all pulled together with witty commentary from the author as well! The book's a great one if, like us, you've got the ability to find humor in the urban situation – the kind of secret little chuckles that pepper our landscape and make living in a city bearable – especially when you can share the humor with others in a public space. Book is hardcover and full color. Book

Dee DanielsIntimate Conversations ... CD
Origin, 2014. New Copy ... $9.99 16.98
Dee Daniels is the kind of singer who really takes us back to our precious time spent in jazz clubs on the south side of Chicago a few decades back – during the days when the old school jazz singer seemed to be a dying breeed, as few labels really understood how to capture their genius or present them to the public. Daniels has an easygoing, relaxed way of putting over a tune – yet still manages to come across with a rich, soulful vibe throughout – whether singing her own great lyrics on one tune, or working through a mix of well-chosen tracks that have a lot more variety than just the usual standards set – the kind of material that a singer like Dee can really make her own, especially with help from a soulful small combo that includes Cyrus Chestnut on piano, Houston Person on tenor, and Wycliffe Gordon on trombone! Titles include "4AM", "Get Here", "Come Try My Love", "Don't Touch Me", "A Song For You", and "I Wish You Love". CD

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". CD

Dischi Della Quercia/Black Saint (Italy), 1970s/1980s. Used 11 CDs ... $36.99
A huge body of work from Italian pianist Giorgio Gaslini – material recorded for his own Dischi Della Quercia – a later imprint that really gave him the chance to express himself in a great number of ways! There's some really special albums on the set – records that include some key duet sessions – one with trombonist Roswell Rudd, one with altoist Anthony Braxton, and one with bassist Eddie Gomez – and some key group outings with some of the best younger Italian players, grouped together under Gaslini's mature direction, in pursuit of a range of sounds that run the gamut from traditional jazz modes to more avant sounds to some compelling Eastern experiments too. The package brings together 11 full albums, many of which we haven't seen on CD in a long long time – the records Murales, New Orleans Suite, Free Actions, Graffitti, Sharing, Live At The Public Theater, Ecstasy, Four Pieces, Indian Suite, Monodrama, and Skies Of China.

JBsFood For Thought ... LP
People, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
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!

Ostensibly released as a project by Penthouse Magazine, and packaged in a tri-fold cover that includes loads of nudie photos of their playmates (or is it "pentmates"?), this is actually a nice bit of extended disco grooves, with some good acoustic percussion, hard conga and kick drums, strings, and electric keyboard lines. The album's broken out into two long tracks (on on each side), "Let's Make Love In Public Places" and "Let Me Be Your Fantasy". Both are nice disco groovers, and we don't see this album that often, either! LP, Vinyl record album

Galt MacDermotMore From The Basement – Unreleased Tracks Vol 2 ... LP
Kilmarnock, 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... $11.99
Funky madness from the mind of Galt MacDermot – the second volume of rare work from his deep deep vaults! Galt's best known to most of the world as the man who wrote the music for Hair, but to us beatheads, the best stuff is his rare work – a wealth of incredible drumbreaks, basslines, piano riffs, and quirky rhythms – recorded for years on his own, finally now getting out to the public! This album's almost better than the first volume – as it's filled with stripped down instrumental cuts that feature plenty of drums (by either Idris Muhammad or Bernard Purdie), electric keyboards, and other instrumentation like flute or guitar. A few cuts have vocals, but even those are nice and funky – and honestly, the album's maybe even better all the way through than most of Galt's classic albums from the old days! Titles include "Ba Ba Black Baby", "Lost Dreams", "Ghetto Suite Medley", "DD 2 03", "Wurly", "Water Fight", and "Cleanly & Pump". LP, Vinyl record album

NWAEfil4zaggin ... CD
Priority, 1991. Used ... $4.99
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. Remastered for the first time, and includes the full 100 Miles & Runnin' EP as bonus cuts. CD

Fantasy/OJC, 1950. Used ... $6.99
Posthumous issue of an early 50s live set by Charlier Parker – one of the many that were rushed to the public in the years after his early death. The set, like many of the other live ones from the time, isn't recorded that well – but the music is still pretty wonderful. There's a real focus on Bird in the way the microphone was set up – so although you hear the rest of the band comping in the background, the album almost works like a session of solo sax work by Parker – as his alto is right out front in the mix, playing with a faltering style at times – but in a way that only seems to deepen our vision of his genius. Players include Red Rodney on trumpet and Al Haig on piano – and titles include "Ornithology", "Star Eyes", "Visa", "I Didn't Know What Time It Was", and "Confirmation". CD

✨✧ Apple & The Three OrangesFree & Easy – The Complete Works 1970 to 1975 ... CD
Now Again, Early 70s. Used ... $10.99
A funky treasure trove from Apple & The Three Oranges – a group we hardly know at all, but who really blow us away with the cuts on this collection! The groove is plenty hard right from the get-go – the best of the funky 45 underground of the early 70s – which means that there's more 60s rawness on the record than you'd get from bigger-label funk at the time – as Ed "Apple" Nelson still works here with a mostly underground vibe! Ed plays drums – which are mighty hard on most numbers – and his vocals have this offbeat, off-kilter, over the top quality that almost reminds us a bit of the Hank Ballard/James Brown recordings for late 60s King – particularly in the way that Nelson's completely unbridled with his energy. The whole thing's great – one of the best funky collections we've heard in years – and presented with a rich amount of notes and historical information too. Titles include "Free & Easy (parts 1 & 2)", "Moon Light", "Curse Upon The World", "What Goes Around Comes Around", "Down Home Publicity", "True Love Will Never Die", "Gotta Stand For Something (parts 1 & 2)", and "I'll Give You A Ring". CD features a massive 52 page booklet, too! CD

Gustav BromBrom Stream ... LP
Supraphon (Czech Republic), 1966. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Some of the most modern work we've ever heard from groundbreaking Eastern European bandleader Gustav Brom – a set that's filled with sharp edges and experimental moments – but which also shows some of the usual Brom swing we've come to love over the years! There's a Kenton-esque love of tone colors going on here – a great sense of placement for the horns, so that they shift over each other wonderfully to create new sounds and tensions, which are then relaxed as the players break into freer solos. The "stream" in the title might be a reference to third stream jazz, but Brom's approach is a lot less academic here – and his group on the album features trumpet, tenor, alto, vibes, baritone sax, and piano. Titles include "Suite About Water", "Study For A Quarter Tone Trumpet", "Silver Spider", "Black Tears", "Poseidon", "Conflicts", and "Hallelujah Time". LP, Vinyl record album
(Heavy original pressing – in great shape, save for some light wear on the cover.)

Gustav BromPozdrav Orchestru ... LP
Supraphon (Czech Republic), 1960s/1970s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $14.99
A sweet little double-length collection of work by one of the hippest bandleaders of the Eastern European scene – the mighty Gustav Brom, whose style is right up there with the best work on Saba/MPS from the late 60s and early 70s! Like some of the bigger groups on that label, Brom's always goes for a hipper, more contemporary approach to rhythm – sometimes funky, sometimes modal – always hard-driving, and filled with creative instrumental explosions. A number of tracks feature electric elements in the rhythms – keyboards, guitar, or bass – and players on the record include some of the greats of Brom's scene – such as Bosko Petrovic on vibes, Peter Herbholzheimer on trombone, Ack Van Rooyen on trumpet, and Aura Ursicenau on vocals. 2LP set features Brom recordings that are mostly from the 70s, plus a few more from the 60s – with titles that include "Vzpominka", "Jazz Bolero", "Ve Zvuku Trubky", "Male Rondo Pro Trubku", "Vztek", "Non Stop", "Kontury", "Vsichni Lide Bratry Jsou", "Tanecek Pro Dva", "Nocni Let", "Predstavy A Skutecnost", and "Model".

James M CainCocktail Waitress ... Book
Hard Case Crime, 1975. New Copy ... $4.99 14.95
A great lost novel from James M Cain – the author who gave us pulp classics like Double Indemnity, Postman Always Rings Twice, and Mildred Pierce! The book was written in Cain's later years – before his death in 1977 – and sees publication here for the first time ever, in a really great package that has a vintage paperback feel that really matches the spirit of Cain's prose. The story's got a classic Cain-styled setup – a widow has to work as a cocktail waitress to support her child, then finds herself caught between a young hustlers and a wealthy older man – with everything spinning out of control in a gritty web of sex and death. 270 pages, hardcover, and with a bonus essay that puts the book in historical context.

Michael Dowers, EditorNewave – The Underground Mini Comix of the 1980s (hardcover) ... Book
Fantagraphics, 1980s/2010. New Copy ... $6.99 24.99
Underground comix ruled the 60s, and indie presses sprung up in the 70s, but the real revolution in the 80s came from home-made mini comics – often printed at copy shops, and folded into these great little self-distributed publications with no rules at all! The mini comics revolution led to a surprisingly great new wave of creativity – images and words that were often tied to the punk underground of the time, and which had a very different aesthetic than the hippie styles that held sway in the 60s and 70s. This massive volume reproduces loads of the best moments of that generation, in the same size in which they were circulated – with almost 900 pages of black and white comix, and work by a huge amount of artists who include Jeff Gaither, Daniel Clowes, JR Williams, Tom Christopher, Meher Dada, Par Holman, Jim Siergey, Rick Geary, Artie Romero, Al Greenier, Brad Foster, Michael Roden, Bob X, Steve Willis, and many others.

Christopher FoxWorks For Piano – Phlip Thomas ... CD
Hat Art (Switzerland), 2014. New Copy ... $13.99 19.99
Bold clusters of sound from pianist Philip Thomas – working here on a series of very inventive compositions by Christopher Fox! Fox has a groundbreaking style that's really striking, right from the first few minutes of the CD – a way of creating almost little stories in sound, driven just by notes from the piano – as they cluster together in shifting ways on the bold "Thermogenesis", seem to keep their distance with a sense of repulsion on "At The Edge Of Time", or move slowly from the low end of the keyboard to the high on "L'Ascenseur"! All three of these pieces are wonderful, and the CD also features the very long, very sprightly "Republican Bagatelles", which is filled with cascades of notes and sound. CD

Eric Godtland & Dian Hanson, edsTrue Crime Detective Magazines 1924 to 1969 ... Book
Taschen, 2008. New Copy ... $8.99 19.99
A totally wonderful look at the glory days of the true crime magazine – filled with lurid covers, striking images, and some thoughtful words about the content! The book is done at a level that's even more color-drenched thant he usual Taschen publication – at a level that really fits the subject, and which brings these great publications to life again – all on paper stock that's a lot better than the torn, yellowing originals! Essays are in English, French, and German – and the images have a universal appeal that never gets old – from slightly sedate 20s and 30s covers, to pinup style 40s and 50s shots, to some oddly gritty 60s photo covers. 334 pages, softcover, and super-heavy!

Larry HarlowSenor Salsa (remastered edition) ... CD
Tropical Buddah, Mid 80s. Used ... $9.99
Larry Harlow certainly earns the name of Senor Salsa here – not just because of his decades-long pedigree in Latin music, but also because the record's easily one of his most solid since the 70s Fania years! There's a tight, jazzy feel to most of these numbers that's really great – almost a return to older modes compared to what Fania was doing at the time – less of the try for the larger tropical market that was hitting Latin in the 80s, and more just a focus on the New York grooves that always sounded best. Larry's on piano, working with a group that features two trombones and three trumpets – and Ray Perez handles lead vocals on most tracks. Titles include "Senor Salsa", "Publico Oyente", "Compartir Dontigo", "Tutti Frutti", "Mono Ve", and "Despedida Agredecida". CD

Jazz Critique Special EditionJazz Bass Special ... Book
Jazz Critique (Japan), 2005. New Copy ... $28.99
The Jazz Critique magazine takes a special look at the bass in jazz – in a book-style publication that's similar to its volumes on single artists, as well as jazz horns and guitar as well! The book is a discography more than anything else – laid out alphabetically by artists, with a range that includes players from around the world, past and present – with listings of their best albums, alongside images of the record cover, recording details, song titles, and personnel! The style is just like other Jazz Critique discographies – including the label-based ones – and similar to those, there's lots of added text in Japanese, but plenty more for any reader of English. Plus, there's also a great color section at the front – and a very thoughtful presentation throughout. Book is 276 pages, and includes hundreds of entries! Book

Jazz Critique Special EditionIssue 157 – Piano Trio In Europe ... Book
Jazz Critique (Japan), 2010. New Copy ... $14.99
A huge guide to the jazz piano scene in Europe – put together here as a special issue of Jazz Critique magazine! The first half of the issue stands as a large discography, filled with listings for obscure releases we might not have seen otherwise – mostly contemporary recordings from the past decade or two, but featuring work by some of the greatest European pianists of the time. There's a special focus on trio dates – as you'd guess from the title – and each listing includes English language text on the players, songs, label, and other details, plus images of the album – followed by more text in Japanese. The second half of the book-like publication features regular Jazz Critique magazine content – with a similar use of English at times in the details of releases – and the front of the issue has a nice color section, with images of lots of album covers too! 260 pages.
