✨✧ Johnny GriffinMan I Love (180 Gram 2LP 45 RPM + bonus LP) ... LP
Black Lion/ORG, 1967. Used 3LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An astounding live set from Johnny Griffin – recorded at the famous Club Montmartre in Copenhagen, where Griff had practically taken up residence in the late 60s! The record crackles with the kind of free energy of the best Montmartre sessions – long tracks and compelling solos, stretched-out versions of tunes you may recognize, but which are transformed nicely by Griff's great solo work – and by a rhythm section that features Kenny Drew on piano, Niels Henning Orsted Pedersen on bass, and Albert Heath on drums! Titles include "The Man I Love", "Blues For Harvey", "Sophisticated Lady", "Hush A Bye", and "Wee". LP, Vinyl record album

Stax, Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
Not the first ever Best Of Big Star compilation, but perhaps the best of we've seen – put together with the partipation of drummer Jody Stephens – featuring most of the very best tracks from all three Big Star LPs, recordings that have hardly aged a day since the early 70s! The carefully chosen tracklist touches on all the bands most rewarding facets, and short of being all of the classic original LPs, we'd be hard pressed to recommend a better entry point the band's classic ouvre. Includes the single versions of "In The Street", "Don't Lie To Me", "September Gurls", "Jesus Christ" "Watch The Sunrise" and "O, My Soul", plus "Thirteen", "I'm In Love With A Girl", "Feel", "When My Baby's Beside Me", "Take Care", "Life Is White", "The Ballad Of El Goodo", "Nightime", "Back Of A Car" and "Thank You Friends".

ValentinesSound Of The Valentines ... LP
RPM (UK), Late 60s. Sealed (reissue)... $11.99
Early work from a young Bon Scott – heard here years before his fame in AC/DC, as one of two singers in the mighty Valentines – a late 60s Aussie group with a wonderfully groovy sound! At some level, these guys share a lot with the British beat group scene of the period – a love of elements from American soul and R&B, which sometimes means they're even covering songs from the US, but in a more rocking way – but The Valentines also have a cool approach that often has them shifting lead vocal chores between Scott and Vince Lovegrove, but with the other harmonizing along – which gives them a fuller feel, and a mode that almost reminds us of the earliest Bee Gees material from Australia. Scott's already got some of the rawness in his voice that you'll know and love – and titles include "Can't Dance With You", "Every Day I Have To Cry", "She Said", "On My Mind", "Gloria", "Love Makes Sweet Music", "Sooky Sooky", "I Can Hear The Raindrops", and "Why Me".

Roy AyersComin' Home Baby – Herbie Mann Presents The Roy Ayers Quartet ... LP
Columbia (Japan), Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $49.99
Damn! This is an amazing rare album from Roy Ayers, and one that, we believe, was only ever issued in Japan! The whole session is made up of 4 tracks, and they were recorded during the time when Roy was playing with Herbie Mann, and recording on Atlantic. This session was cut Direct-To-Disc, and the record plays at 45 rpm for extra high fidelity! The quartet includes Sonny Sharrock on guitar, and Miroslav Vitous on bass. Cuts include "Comin' Home Baby", "Man & A Woman", and "Scarborough Fair". LP, Vinyl record album

Billie HolidayBillie Holiday – The Golden Years 1933-1941 (3LP box set) ... LP
Columbia, 1930s. Near Mint- 3LP Box Set ... $19.99
An excellent collection of Billie's 30s work for Columbia Records – featuring 3LPs worth of material, represented with much better sound than the original 78 rpm release of the songs. Billie's in the company of a host of great jazzmen – including Count Basie, Lester Young, Teddy Wilson, Charlie Shavers, Artie Shaw, Cozy Cole, Roy Eldridge, Red Allen, and countless others. 48 tracks in all – with titles that include "Your Mother's Son In Law", "Riffin The Scotch", "Them There Eyes", "Without Your Love", "Swing Brother Swing", "Back In Your Own Back Yard", "You Go To My Head", "Long Gone Blues", "I Can't Get Started", "All Of Me", "God Bless The Child", and "Gloomy Sunday".

Lightnin HopkinsLightning Hopkins Sings The Blues ... LP
United, Early 50s. Near Mint- ... $19.99
Lightnin Hopkins sings the blues – and virtually helps reinvent the genre in the process with these classic Texas recordings for the RPM label! The style here is much rootsier than some of the postwar blues coming out from other scenes – quite spare, and almost more in a delta style of singer and guitar, without much else in the mix. Yet Hopkins' use of an electric instrument here is seminal – as he works the strings with these inflections and inspirations that would have a huge impact on countless other musicians to come – first blues contemporaries, then bigger talents in the world of rock in later decades. Yet there's still nothing better than these initial recordings – as few folks have a way of hitting the right modes in the right way like Lighnin – both vocally, where he's simple but extremely powerful – and instrumentally, where he can always grab us with just a surprising flick or two of his fingers on the strings.

VariousWestbound Funk – Masterful Funk From The Detroit Powerhouse Labels Of Eastbound & Westbound ... LP
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $16.99 22.99
The title's almost redundant – as the words "Westbound" and "Funk" mean virtually the same thing! From the late 60s through the mid 70s, Westbound was one of the key record labels in the sound of raw heavy funk – working with hit groups like Funkadelic and the Ohio Players to craft a sound that laid the blueprint for countless other groups of the time, and also featuring a wealth of obscurer artists with an even harder-hitting sound! The key styles of Westbound and related jazz label Eastbound were heavy and fuzzy ones – picking up off the heady and trippy styles of the late 60s Detroit scene, mixing things up with MC5 guitars, Norman Whitfield bass, and deep underground Tribe-styled jazz touches. This 20 track masterpiece is a brilliant summation of the important Westbound sound – and includes a few hits, some funky 45 classics, and an even bigger number of tracks we might not have heard otherwise! The notes are great, the tunes are super-funky, and the whole thing's one of the best funky collections you could ever hope to purchase. Titles include "You're Messing Up My Mind" by Albert Washington, "Back To Funk" by Robert Lowe, "You Caught Me Smilin" by The 19th Whole, "Conga Man" by King Errison, "Shake Your Head" by Spanky Wilson, "I Love You" by The Motivations, "I Don't Know What It Is But It Sure Is Funky" by Mighty Elegant, "Crazy Legs" by Donald Austin, "Stone Thing (part 1)" by Alvin Cash, "RPM" by Boots, "Funky World (part 1)" by Silky Vincent, "Get Funky Sweet A Little Bit" by Jackie Harris & The Exciters, "I'll Bet You" by Funkadelic, and "Why Not Start All Over Again" by The Counts.

The Sun Masters includes all the Sun master takes from this pivotal early 50s period on LP for the first time ever – with "That's All Right" and "Blue Moon Of Kentucky" (both 45 RPM master takes), "Good Rockin' Tonight", "Milkcow Blues Boogie", "Baby Let's Play House", "Mystery Train", "Just Because", "Tomorrow Night", "Trin' To Get To YoU", "I Forgot To Remember To Forget", "Hnarbor Lights", "You're A Heartbreaker" and more. 17 in all.

A great dip into the earliest, headiest years of the Grateful Dead – served up here in a set that brings together cuts from their first three albums, plus a single as well! The mix of modes here is still mindblowing after all these many years – and even after all the later cliches of the group, too – as there's a time-spanning, genre-stepping quality from the young lineup of Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Mickey Hart, and others – moving through tracks that include the long "That's It For The Other One" suite, plus "The Golden Road To Unlimited Devotion", "Cream Puff War", "Morning Dew", "Born Cross-Eyed", "Cosmic Charlie", "China Cat Sunflower", and "St Stephen" – plus the original 45 rpm single mix of "Dark Star" – quite different than all the long-jamming takes from later years.

Yet Gordon may have sounded best right at the start of his career – on these smoking early sides for the RPM Records label, cut in a beautiful fusion of blues piano, romping rhythms, and some very special vocals from the man himself! The collection presents that material at a level that really blows away some of the cheaper Roscoe Gordon volumes on the market – and titles include "New Orleans Wimmen", "No More Doggin", "Ouch Pretty Baby", "Booted", "Just In From Texas", and "Whiskey Made Me Drunk" LP, Vinyl record album

Prestige/Analogue Productions, 1955. Near Mint- 2LP ... $49.99
A beautiful little record by Miles Davis – oft overlooked next to some of the better-titled Prestige sessions of the 50s, but a great one nonetheless! The session features Miles working with trio backing from Red Garland on piano, Oscar Pettford on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on drums – often in a mellow mode that fits the "musings" in the title, but which also provides a wonderful showcase for Davis to further intensify his vision on a set of longer tracks. Most tunes are familiar, but they're really transformed here – and titles include "I Did", 'Will You Still Be Mine?", "Green Haze", "I See You Face Before Me", "A Night In Tunisia" and "A Gal In Calico".

Peter GabrielPeter Gabriel 1 – Car (2LP 45RPM Half Speed Master) ... LP
Real World/Caroline, 1977. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
The first solo set from Peter Gabriel – and a record that was quite a surprise upon initial release – kind of a stripped-down variant of the energy that Gabriel brought to his early work with Genesis, presented in a nicely lean way that allowed for all the best focus on his key ideas! The style here is light years away from the last moments Gabriel was with Genesis – although there's still a few nice touches of the Lamb Lies Down generation, too – and the vocals are more pointed, more focused, and arguably more personal too. Instrumentation holds up better than you might expect – especially as there was no move at all to nod to the nascent punk generation – and titles include the hit "Solsbury Hill", plus "Modern Love", "Slowburn", "Humdrum", "Waiting For The Big One", "Down The Dolce Vita", and "Here Comes The Flood".

Long tracks and plenty of room to move around – a perfect setting for the classic sound of the Red Garland Trio on Prestige! Despite the title, the album's not so much groovy as it is lyrically beautiful and filled with sensitivity – a key bridge between piano players of the mainstream in the years before Garland, and some of the bigger, bolder names that would rise up during the 60s soul jazz years. Rhythm is by Paul Chambers on bass and Art Taylor on drums – and the longer tracks give Chambers plenty of room to express his unique talents on the bass. Titles include "Willow Weep For Me", "What Can I Say, Dear", and "Hey Now". LP, Vinyl record album

Strong stuff, following his own path in respectable, highly rewarding fashion. Includes "Me And Your Mama", "Have Some Love", "Boogieman", "Zombies", "Riot", "Redbone", "Terrified", "California", "Terrified", "The Night Me & Your Mama Met" and more.

Nirvana's riveting Incesticide – which at the time, looked like a mere placeholder for Geffen to sate the suddenly massive new fanbase of the band, between proper albums – but it turned out to be nearly as essential as anything they'd ever put out! A great batch of songs that are as fresh as ever, thanks to them getting comparatively little air time, as opposed to the Nevermind and In Utero hits. Titles include "Sliver" (our pick for the greatest Nirvana song ever – and their most classic punk rock-styled song), "Stain", "Been A Son", "Son Of A Gun", "Molly's Lips", "Beeswax", "Downer", "Aero Zeppelin", and "Big Long Now".

A mighty album of Afro-styled grooves from Itadi K Bonney – an artist you might know from his late 70s album, issued under just his first name – and one who works with a sound that's even hipper here overall! The set was produced right before Bonney left Togo for various political reasons – and there's a power in the music that definitely mirrors his important cultural role –a freethinking blend of more than just a few contemporary styles, served up in a way that's as musically progressive as it is political! Riffing guitars and stepping basslines set up the groove nicely – and there's some very cool keyboard moments throughout, including a few moogy bits that really sound great. Titles include "Inye" – in both the album and 45rpm versions – plus "Hustle", "Africa Is Hot", "Why Why", "Aga Mimi", and "Ye Ye Ye". LP, Vinyl record album

Big Bill BroonzyDo That Guitar Rag 1928 to 1935 ... LP

Bill Broonzy's a singer who recorded often in later years – but it's these early recordings that really won his fame – spare 78rpm sides that are full of dextrous guitar work that has plenty of jazzy inflections! Bill's vocals have a bit of jazz, too – and these sides are a great example of the blurring of lines between blues and jazz in the early days – or, perhaps, of the way that blues constantly came along and had something to offer jazz just when it needed it most. Whatever the case, though, the set's a wonderful batch of gems from Broonzy – most recorded right at the start of the 30s, with titles that include "Terrible Operation Blues", "Big Bill Blues", "Grandma's Farm", "Guitar Rag", "Pussy Cat Blues", "Mr Conductor Man", and "Down In The Basement".

Most numbers feature just Burnside on vocals and guitar – with a vibe that's similar to the field recordings that first introduced the world to his talents – those delta-raised styles that have an immediate tie back to the early years of blues on 78rpm discs, especially in this session – where RL seems to almost be reaching back further than the style of some of his other recordings of the same period. Titles include "Skinny Woman", "See What My Buddy Done", "Shake Em On Down", "Don't Care How Long You're Gone", "Jumper On The Line", "Long Haired Doney", and "Greyhound Bus Station".

Not the RL Burnside of later revival years – when he was maybe recorded a bit too much – but an album that captures the man right at the start of his career – when he was a young talent, but working in blues modes that were far beyond his age! The set features Memphis and Mississippi recordings from 1969 – done for Adelphi Records, and with Burnside in a completely compelling mode as a singer who feels more like he's working for the postwar country blues 78rpm market, than any sort of contemporary label – really inflecting both his vocals and strings of his guitar with an amazingly personal vibe – and giving the kind of sound that feels like it's just risen from the soil of the south. Titles include "Two Trains Runnin", "Hobo Blues", "My Black Name Ringin", "Sat Down On My Bed & Cried", "Nine Days In Jail", "See My Jumper", "Tom Wilson's Place", and "Poor Boy".

Miles DavisDig ... LP
Prestige, 1951. Good+ ... $29.99
A key early appearance on record by Sonny Rollins – recorded here with Miles Davis and Jackie McLean in the landmark Dig session! The album's the stuff that 50s bop dreams are made of – a session that has up-and-coming modernists working in the new freedom of the long playing record, in a way that allows them to break past the shorter, more urgent sound of the 78rpm single! Rollins is young, but a surprisingly strong voice on the set – and Jackie McLean's alto is incredibly sharp at this point, with strong hints of the genius to come later in the decade. The rest of the lineup includes Walter Bishop on piano, Tommy Potter on bass, and Art Blakey on drums – and tracks include Miles' classic version of "It's Only A Paper Moon", plus "Denial", "Out Of The Blue", "Dig", and "Bluing".

The session came at a time when Skip James was hardly getting any mainstream attention, but had been rediscovered by a younger generation – which led to the fledgling Adelphi Records bringing him into the studio and really letting him do his thing! There's no attempt at commercialism here at all – as the tracks are spare, of varying length, and have James letting that amazing vocal style loose – soaring out with a heavenly sound at some moments, and hewing to the rhythms of his guitar at others – given reverent production treatment by the young John Fahey. Titles include "Broke & Hungry", "Crow Jane", "Cypress Grove Blues", "Black Gal", "Drunken Spree", "Illinois Blues", "Look Down The Road", and "Bad Whiskey". LP, Vinyl record album

The sound quality is great – which is important, as Willie's got a style of guitar that's almost lighter in tone than some of his contemporaries – a deft thinness that really comes through well in this presentation of the music, really showing his skill on the strings. Vocals are surprisingly raw at points, making for a real contrast to the guitar – and titles include "I Know His Blood Can Make Me Whole", "Praise God I'm Satisfied", "Dark Was The Night Cold Was The Ground", "When The War Was On", and "Mother's Children Have A Hard Time".

Fantastic recordings of the legendary Furry Lewis – a musician who may be pictured in a bathrobe on the front cover, but who comes across with all the sharp edges and bold tones of his classic work! The material is part of that legendary George Mitchell series of blues recordings, and may well be one of the best – as Mitchell captures both Lewis' guitar and vocals with incredible clarity – especially the instrument, which yields the kind of complex passages and subtle tones that would have been a lot harder to hear in a 78rpm environment. Furry's vocals are wonderful, too – with a stretching depth that evokes gospel inspiration, but served up with very secular subject matter – on titles that include "Why Don't You Come Home Blues", "Good Morning Judge", "Blues Around My Bed", "Furry Lewis' Careless Love", and "Old Hobo".

Underground 60s work from Little Brother Montgomery – the bluesy pianist who was such an important part of the Chicago scene in the 30s! The set's got a very timeless feel – mostly just Montgomery on piano and vocals, with some occasional guitar accompaniment from Mike Stewart – who seems to play a steel guitar at points – and some guest vocals from Jeanne Carroll at a few points – which leaves most of the music to the man himself, who really shines in the setting! The production is lean and laidback – but Little Brother is super-tight in his performance – as sparkling and lively as he must have been during the 78rpm era, but recorded with much better fidelity. Titles include "No Special Rider", "Prison Bound Blues", "Gin House Blues", "London Shout", "Oh Daddy", "Little Brother's Early Pieces & History", "Muleface Blues", and "Farrish Street Jive".

Lee Morse has a lovely look on the cover – almost contemporary, despite the sepia tone – which is maybe a great hint at the forward-thinking influence she had on the music of the 20s! Morse isn't just your usual jazz singer, as she's clearly borrowed a lot from blues as well – including an ability to accompany herself on acoustic guitar, which she often uses with nicely inventive phrasing – at a level that clearly indicates that she's more than just another pretty face in the early 78rpm music market. This set brings together a dozen of Lee's classic numbers – and titles include "Telling Eyes", "Daddy's Girl", "Cooking Breakfast For The One I Love", "Where'd You Get Those Eyes", "Look What You Went & Done", "I've Looked All Over For A Boy Like You", and "Mother & Dad".

Nirvana's final album – one that's as poetic as it is heavy, and as beautiful as it is brutal – packaged with a full LP of exceptionally strong bonus material! In Utero's legacy gets greater and greater over the years, not only because its mastermind extinguished himself not too long after it's release, but more than that, it's simply one of the greatest rock albums of its time. Angry, fed up, yet oddly righteous in its angst, in a way that makes it easy to get into despite all the raw nerve anguish. Includes"Serve The Servents", "Scentless Apprentice", "Heart-Shaped Box", "Rape Me", "Dumb", "Very Ape", "Radio Friendly Unit Shifter", "All Apologies" and the rest of the uberclassic album – plus an entire LP of bonus tracks – more than half of which have never been released before now.! Those include the hard-sought Steve Albini mixes of "Heart-Shaped Box" and "All Apologies", plus "Marigold", "Sappy", "I Hate Myself And I Want To Die", the Scott Litt mix of "Pennyroyal Tea" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Incredible well done – triple 180 gram, 45rpm vinyl!)
