✨✧ NirvanaIn Utero (3LP 45 rpm 180 gram pressing with bonus tracks) ... LP
DGC, 1993. New Copy 3LP Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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.

VariousWestbound Funk – Masterful Funk From The Detroit Powerhouse Labels Of Eastbound & Westbound ... LP
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $19.99 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.

✨✧ Pepe Sanchez Y Su Rock BandRegresion (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Pharaway Sounds (Spain), 1976. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Fantastic funk from the Spanish scene of the 70s – a set that starts out in the best electric fusion mode, but also embraces some older Spanish currents too – with a groove that's almost a 70s funk take on some of the flamenco jazz experiments of the late 60s! Yet we'll also say that there's more reedwork here than guitar – including some sublime tenor and soprano sax from the great Pedro Iturralde, easily one of the best Spanish jazz musicians of his generation – working here with other soloists on flute, trumpet, and trombone – all led by the heavy drums of Pepe Sanchez! Bass and electric keyboards round out the groove – creating this great criss-crossing of rhythms that's mighty nice – on titles that include "Sentimiento", "Renacimiento", "Cantares", "Regresion", "Nostalgia", "Paisajes", and "A Mi Tierra". Also includes two bonus tracks from a later 45 rpm single – "Love Me" and "Encuentros En La 5a Dimension". LP, Vinyl record album

MetallicaMaster Of Puppets (2LP 180 gram pressing – 45rpm) ... LP
Elektra, 1986. Sealed 2LP ... $59.99
An unimpeachable metal masterpiece! Master Of Puppets is one of the rare cases when the critical and popular consensuses match right up and are both right on the money – there's just no arguing against this being considered one of the greatest, most influential, and surprisingly timeless metal albums of all time – and it built that reputation organically, fan by fan, without radio or music videos to hype it. All the more impressive for the few disarmingly quiet moments and borderline pretty instrumental passages before the heaviness comes walloping back in. All classic songs on this one: "Battery", "Master Of Puppets", "The Thing That Should Not Be", "Welcome Home (Sanitarium)", "Disposable Heroes", "Leper Messiah", "Orion" and "Damage, Inc.". LP, Vinyl record album
(EU pressing, still sealed, and with original paper band – "Louder Faster Heavier".)

A sweet little piano trio set from Yama & Jiro – that's Tsuyoshi Yamamoto on piano and Tetsujiro Obara on drums – joined here by Akira Daiyoshi on some mighty warm bass! The set's got that wonderful open, laidback vibe you sometimes get on these Three Blind Mice sessions from the 70s – a beautiful recording quality that really lets all the subtle, gentle moments come through all with a quality that's oddly different than an American trio session of the time. Titles include "Girl Talk", "Gone With The Wind", "What Now My Love", and "Autumn In New York". LP, Vinyl record album

Super Fuji Discs (Japan), 1973. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Wonderfully folksy rock from this obscure Japanese group – an early 70s combo that included Harumi Hosono, years before his more electronic work! The sound of the album borrows a lot from the best of America's late 60s underground folk rock scene – and the production's an amazing blend of compressed guitars, slightly funky bass, and a nice spacious sense of arrangement that creates a surprising amount of soul. Vocals are mostly in Japanese, but sung in a mode that's so compelling – and the tunes themselves are catchy as heck! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Haruomi HosonoHosono House (2 x 45rpm 180 gram pressing) ... LP
King/Fuji (Japan), 1973. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A completely wonderful album from Haruomi Hosono – a real watershed not just in his own career, but in the development of mainstream Japanese music too! The set's got the sophistication of the best of the singer/songwriter underground in the US – not just in the lyrical presentation, which you might not be able to understand – but also in terms of the overall production, arrangements, and instrumentation – which seem to echo some of the hippest currents of that LA underground that often found its greatest flowering in those under-sold albums on Warner Brothers during the late 60s. Hosono's vocals are wonderful – completely charming, even if you can't grasp the language – and the album's a much-treasured set from the Japanese 70s scene. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Big Bill BroonzyBig Bill's Blues ... LP
Columbia/Traffic, 1958. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99 24.98
A classic album from the great Big Bill Broonzy – issued at the end of the 50s as part of the big book in folk blues – even though Broonzy was one of the few artists keeping that style strong during the earlier postwar years! The album's wonderfully respectful – maybe more in the mode of a vintage session of 78rpm recordings from Bill's earlier years than you might guess from Columbia Records in the late 50s – mostly just Broonzy on vocals and guitar, the latter of which is sometimes used quite sparingly – leaving Bill's amazing vocal inflections to really carry the tunes! Titles include "Martha", "Tell Me What Kind Of Man Jesus Is", "Bossie Woman", "Texas Tornado", "Key To The Highway", "When I've Been Drinkin", and "Goodbye Baby Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

RL BurnsideMississippi Hill Country Blues (with bonus download) ... LP
Fat Possum, Early 80s. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99 17.98
An album recorded in the Netherlands, but a set that hits right to the heart of RL Burnside's Mississippi roots – thanks to a beautifully spare, careful presentation of the music! 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".

Miles DavisDig ... LP
Prestige, 1951. Very Good ... $9.99
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".

Johnny Mbizo DyaniAfrican Bass – Solo Concert Wilisau Jazz Festival 1978 ... LP
Sing A Song Fighter (UK), 1978. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $29.99
Legendary South African bassist Johnny Mbizo Dyani, in a setting that's completely different than some of his other recordings – a sublime solo performance from the late 70s, and one that features Dyani sounding even more spiritual than ever! Johnny's music is always fantastic – and his contribution to The Blue Notes and many other avant groups has been well-documented on a string of wonderful records from the 60s, 70s, and 80s. But here, Dyani opens up in this very personal, very beautiful way that stretches back to his roots, embraces his role in the UK avant scene, but also comes across with this incredibly moving power that really blows us away. At some level, Dyani's a bit like Malachi Favors on the Chicago scene – an incredibly important part of a group, and one that always stands out – but, like Favors, also a person filled with warmth and personality that doesn't always get to shine as strongly in the company of others. Here, Johnny finally gets that chance – not just playing solo bass, but also piano, percussion, and vocalizing a bit – on titles that include "Le Ngo Ma", "Aba Limanga II", "Wish You Sunshine", "Afrikan Blues", and "Let The Music Take You".

Max Eastley/Steve Beresford/David Toop/Paul BurwelWhirled Music ... LP
Quartz/Black Truffle (Austria), 1980. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $29.99
The title's not a take on the format of world music – and instead, the sounds here are literally "whirled" – mostly created by performers using instruments that are spinning in the air – often with sonic results that are pretty incredible! These aren't the echoey tubes you might have whirled over your head as a kid – and instead, the quartet handle objects with origins from around the globe – sometimes very ancient and folkloric, other times modern and experimental – and the whirling process often creates these cycles of sounds that almost echo the electronic – making the whole thing a very different way of approaching the idea of electro-acoustic music. The album comes with one side of shorter studio tracks, and one very vibrant side of a live improvised performance! LP, Vinyl record album

The lineup includes Dizzy on trumpet, Sonny Stitt on tenor, John Lewis and Hank Jones on piano, Percy Heath on bass, and Max Roach on drums – making a rare 70s appearance in a straight set like this. Tracks are all bop standards, played in versions that allow for plenty of solo space – and titles include "Confirmation", "Groovin High", "Lover Man", "All The Things You Are", and "Lady Bird".

A very different album than usual for saxophone genius Mats Gustafsson – as it actually has him playing with electronics a lot more than reeds – although still using that sound source with the same amazing sense of texture, shape, and tone! Gustafsson's partner here is drummer Didi Kern – who's got a completely unbridled way of handling the drums – almost arrhythmic overall, with this blistering intensity that must be something to witness – as must the match of ferocity that Mats brings to his own instrumentation – a matched power that often had us running over to the turntable, to make sure we hadn't set the album on 45rpm! Titles include "Cold Start", "Fun Generator", "Marvel Motor 2", "Besenkammer", and "Enhancement". LP, Vinyl record album

Kitsos HarisiadisLament In A Deep Style – 1929 to 1931 ... LP
Third Man, Late 20s/Early 30s. New Copy Gatefold ... $14.99 18.00
Clarinet music, but unlike anything else you might have heard before – as Greek musician Kitsos Harisiadis uses the instrument in a style that's quite far from American jazz and swing! Instead, the clarinet here is used on a series of folkloric tunes – music from the northwestern region of Greece, where Kitsos lived in the 20s – preserved here on vintage 78rpm recordings that are filled with rich tone and echo – audio that seems to transform the clarinet even more, as the instrument is set amidst spare percussion or stringed instrument backing – to soar out into space with a very melancholy vibe! Harisiadis is incredibly deft – running up and down the instrument with the speed and creativity of a free jazz musician, but always keeping things melodic, even when emotionally moving. Titles include "Zagorisio", "Dipli Gaida", "Skaros", "Mirologi In Do", "Stroto Pogonisio", "Miarologi Arvanitiko", and "Gaida". LP, Vinyl record album

Gilbert HolmstromKonfrontation – Unreleased 1968 (180 gram gold vinyl) ... LP
Moserobie (Sweden), 1968. New Copy ... $22.99
Never-issued work by 60s Swedish modern jazz legend Gilbert Holmstrom – one of the most freely improvising musicians on his scene at the time! The set brings together two long selections recorded in 1968 – even more far-reaching material than Gilbert's famous Quintet album a few years before – and Gilbert blows tenor and flute in a large group that has this way of swinging effortlessly between cohesion and individual explosions of sound – a bit like some of Clifford Thornton's work at times, with a starkly revolutionary sound that's quite impressive, even given the long legacy of Swedish modern jazz in the years before. Other players include Enar Jonsson and Lars Lofstedt on trumpets, Pider Avall and Stig Ekelof on trombones, Jan Forslund on baritone, Clas Fehling on piano, Claes Wallin on bass, and Anders Soderling on drums – and both selections appear here in bold, brilliant mono.

Freddie HubbardLive In Zonderschot 1973 (180 gram pressing) ... LP

A lost live performance from the mighty Freddie Hubbard – cut during his early 70s run for CTI, but with a sound that's even more open and flowing overall! The tracks here are nice and long, and make great use of electric piano from George Cables – whose lines really help make the music groove over funky drums from Michael Carvin, and bass from Kent Brinkley. Perhaps the best surprise, though, is saxophonist Junior Cook – who really plays with an edge here, one that we're not sure we've heard on other records – blowing tenor with this really sharp, angular tone that's completely sublime, and almost a bit exotic – and quite an unusual match for Freddie's tight trumpet lines. Titles include "First Light", "Breaking Point", "Sky Dive", and "Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey". LP, Vinyl record album

One of the most legendary bluesmen of the early 78rpm generation – heard here in a wonderfully-recorded set from 1964! 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.

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".

Bruno's got some really wide-open ears on the set – able to bring in lots of unusual sounds and odd inflections, while still keeping things compelling and groovy – even dipping into a bit of Bach at one moment, but with a very hip sort of Italian presentation! Some rhythms are bossa, some are more playful – and instrumentation includes organ, piano, plucked guitar, stepping strings, and lots of mighty nice basslines. Titles include "Versus III", "Una Giornata Spesa Bene", "Verdetto Per I Giurati", "La Fine", "Minuto Su Minuto", "Inutilmente", and "L'Idea Fissa". LP, Vinyl record album

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

Pure psych genius from Third Bardo – a group who only recorded a handful of singles for Roulette Records in the mid 60s – but who made music that was every bit as sinister as the best garage psych groups from the Texas scene or the west coast! Vocalist Jeff Monn is incredible – a singer whose sharp edge should have been topping hits later in the 60s – and the lineup here is a spare bass, drums, and double guitar – but all used with frenzied energy that almost reminds us of early Love at times.

Asherah, Late 20s/Early 30s. New Copy ... $10.99
The authentic sound of Hawaii – music from long before the islands achieved statehood, and long before their music became the stuff of stereotype! Instead, the sounds here are a fresh flowering of musical expression – mostly using unusual guitar phrasing and vocals, and recorded during the same 78rpm era that gave the world rural blues and string band music! At the time, Hawaiian records like these were ever bit as much a part of the transforming global landscape of sound – and heard in the context of other older 78rpm styles, they're every bit as mesmerizing – in ways you'd never expect if you only know Don Ho or 60s easy listening Hawaii. The set brings together some real gems from the early 78rpm years – and titles on this second volume include "U Like Noa Like" by Tau Moe's Hawaiian Jazzites, "Kola Pa" by Sol Hoopii, "Maui Girl" by Andy Iona's Islanders, "Alekoki" by Kane's Hawaiians, "O Kou Aloha Ia Oe" by John Almeida, and "Wela Ka Hao" by Segis Luvaun.

VariousJukebox Mambo 3 – Afro Latin Accents In Rhythm & Blues 1947 to 1960 (10 inch record book – with bonus tracks & download) ... LP
Jazzman (UK), Late 40s/1950s. New Copy 6 x 10 inch ... $78.99 96.99
Maybe the rootsiest set so far in this excellent series – and one that almost seems to go back and look a bit at the evolution of the genre! As you probably know from our notes on the previous collections, the term "jukebox mambo" is here used to refer to postwar R&B that's heavy on influences from Latin music – sometimes in the rhythms or percussion, sometimes in other elements as well! About half the tracks here would be right at home on some Ace Records collection of material from labels like King Records, Specialty, or Atlantic – and many have a tripling rhythmic groove that's part New Orleans soul, part romping jazzy percussion. But others seem to borrow maybe a bit more from the Caribbean, too – some of the leaner tracks that echo the coolest styles of the islands, especially in the vocals, percussion, and use of guitar. The choice of cuts is wonderful – a huge array of sounds that you would not expect to come together this beautifully – and titles include "Please Don't Go" by Floyd Dixon, "Alabama Sue" by Roy Gaines, "Mambo Mambo Baby" by Paul Boyers Band, "Calypso Cha Cha For Spooks" by Monogram Caribbean Orchestra, "Bermuda" by Maurice King & His Wolverines, "Mary" by Preacher Stephens With The Foree Wells Combo, "Tough De Times" by The Emperor, "Hurry Back Baby" by Camille Howard, "Caravan" by Chuz Alfred, "Swing Low Sweet Cadillac" by Aggie Dukes, "Double A Mambo" by Linton Garner & His All Stars, "Little Daddy" by Big Bertha, "The Mojo" by Sax Mallard, and "I Ain't Nothing But A Fool" by Christine Kittrell. A fantastic version – pressed with six 10" EP vinyl records holding the music – just like a vintage album of 78rpm discs – along with four bonus tracks that weren't on the other CD or vinyl versions – and a download card as well.

✨✧ Furry LewisGood Morning Judge – Recorded By George Mitchell in 1962 (with bonus download) ... LP
Fat Possum, 1962/1967. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

Jazzman (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Fantastic sounds from the grittiest years of the 45rpm single – music that's so mad, so strange, it really defies description! All the cuts here are presented in conjunction with the long-running Fool's Paradise radio show on WFMU – a longtime champion of all things weird and wild – always reminding us that in the glory days of vinyl, there was so much stuff set to record that really defied any sort of description – sounds that usually were quite far from the charts as well! The music here maybe has bits of R&B, early rock, jazz, and exotica – but the end results are all pretty darn unique – and often handled with both a sense of humor, and a great ear for unusual studio tricks and gimmicks. Titles include "Chinese Rock & Roll" by the Flock Rocker, "Shawnee" by The Premiers, "Charlie & The Bank Job" by Al Katraz, "Umh Uh Baby" by Kind Sid, "Knock Her Down" by The Orbits, "The Last Meal" by Hurricane Harry, "500 Pound Canary" by Jules Blattner, "The Goatee's Got To Go" by Dick Summers, "Mad" by Bobby Borda Five, "Pulp Wood Charley" by Wee Willie & The Soulettes, and "Pal Mal Rock" by Arnie Ginsberg.

✨✧ ArianArian ... LP
Favorite (France), Early 80s. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Arian's perm on the cover gives you a hint of how the set might sound – and the whole thing is maybe even better than you might think! The album's an unusual soul set from early 80s Yugoslavia – with vocals that are partly in English, and a sound that's heavy on the same kind of keyboards and basslines that you'd hear coming from the New York scene – on tunes that include some numbers penned by Hubert Eaves and Bobby Caldwell – and sung by Arian with a blue-eyed soul approach – in vocals that are maybe not as strong as his American contemporaries, but which more than make up for their lack with an overall sense of groove. Titles include "Your Love Makes Me A Winner", "Sure It's Funky", "Still Together", "Novi Susret", "Can't Say Goodbye", and "Lutas Velikim Gradom". LP, Vinyl record album

Favorite (France), 1981. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A cool Canadian club classic from the start of the 80s – and a record that's got a groove that's quite different than some of the Montreal disco of a few short years before! Junior Byron's got a warm, fully-fleshed approach to his music – soaring on the uptempo tracks, and wickedly stepping on the mellower numbers – almost that mix of warmth and groove that you'd find in some of the best work by Leon Ware or Roy Ayers around the same time, but maybe more decidedly aimed at the dancefloor overall! Production is great – more sunny west coast than you'd expect from Toronto – and titles include "Heart To Heart Sensation", "Galaxy", "Inch By Inch", "Space Cowboy", "Too Much Tonight", and the great mellow "Sunshine".

A sweet collection of music from the early films of Jean Luc Godard – mostly tracks that initially appeared on 45rpm EP releases in France – but brought together here in an overstuffed double LP set! The package features a fair bit of jazzy tracks from Godard's key films of the nouvelle vague – French new wave – served up in a collection that features work by different composers, but a nicely unified spirit overall! The set features music from A Bout De Souffle (aka Breathless) by Martial Solal, Une Femme Est Une Femme by Michel Legrand, Le Mepris by Georges Delerue, and Vivre Sa Vie by Legrand.

✨✧ VariousAs 10 Mais Boogie Vol 1 – Serie Compactos 7" – A Collection Of Rare Brazilian 80s Compactos (180 gram gold vinyl pressing) ... LP
SDB Discos, Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Rare Brazilian funk from the early 80s – served up here on a range of tracks that originally appeared on Brazil's unique 7" compacto format at the time! The smaller records were the nation's equivalent to 12" singles up north – and most spun at 33rpm, which allowed more space for the sorts of boogie rhythms and funky flow taking place here! There's plenty of elements that echo the sound of 80s soul in the US – with the beats, keyboards, and electro elements you might expect – but as with Brazilian soul from the decade before, there's also plenty of cool homegrown touches too. Titles include "Estou Livre" by Tony Bizarro, "Velho Guerreiro" by Rubao Sabino, "Break Mandrake" by Electric Boogies, "Ve Se Me Esquese" by Tony Blue, "Ta Dando Mole Ze" by Cassiano, "Dance Com A Gente" by Let's Dance, "Ve Se Decide" by Tim Maia, "Macaco Pesado" by Newton Drinckwater, and "Super Amor" by Gaby Do Whiskadao.

✨✧ VariousLondon Is The Place For Me Vol 3 – Ambrose Adekoya Campbell ... LP
Honest Jons (UK), Late 50s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
One of our favorite volumes in the London Is The Place For Me collection – and a brilliant batch of work that criss-crosses West African, West Indian, and postwar jazz styles! Most of the recordings here were done under the leadership of Ambrose Adekoya Campbell – a transplant to London from Lagos in the postwar year, and an artist who had a huge influence on the changing rhythms of his scene. Campbell mixed styles of his roots with those of the larger London community around him – in a way that let in more Latin and Caribbean influences to more traditional African styles – often using guitar in a high-life styled way, but also bringing in some key jazz phrasings as well. As usual with Honest Jons' reissues, the notes are quite detailed, but ultimately a bit unspecific about the actual recordings in the set – although we can say that Campbell's on nearly all of these, and they were all done as 50s 78rpm singles for the Melodisc label. Titles include "We Have It In Africa", "Iku Koni Payin", "I Am A Stranger", "Lagos Mambo", "Ela Da Awa", "and "Calabar-O" by West African Rhythm Brothers; "The Wind In A Frolic" and "Unity" by Nigerian Union Rhythm Group; "Ibikunle Alakija" by Ayinde Bakare & His Meranda Orchestra; and "Late Ojo Davies" and "Geneva Conference" by West African Rhythm Stars.

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

Fat Possum, 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ Nina SimoneColpix Singles – Mono ... LP
Colpix/Parlophone, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic collection of early work from the legendary Nina Simone – singles that were originally issued by the Colpix label at the start of the 60s – a company who really let Nina find her own space in music! The sounds here really show the important transition Nina took over her short time with the label – from a straight jazz singer to one who could effortlessly blend together blues and folk influences – and come up with an approach that not only made the music her own, but also pushed an agenda of change in subtle and powerful ways. Nina's live albums for Colpix are well-known, but there's been much less focus on her singles for the company until this collection – which brings together all these rare gems, many in their original 45rpm versions for the first time since they were issued in the early 60s. Arrangements are by Stu Phillips, Ralph Burns, Bob Mersey, and even Nina herself – and titles include "The Other Woman", "If Only For Tonight", "Summertime", "Work Song", "In The Evening By The Moonlight", "I Got It Bad", "Gin House Blues", "Come On Back Jack", "Since My Love Has Gone", "Nobody Knows You When You're Down & Out", "Children Go Where I Send You", and "Chilly Winds Don't Blow".

Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
File this one under "raunch", or maybe "twang" – or maybe both, because there's plenty of raunchy twang going on all the way through! The album follows strongly in the same space as the previous volumes – with lots of weird, wonderful tracks from the glory day of the indie 45rpm single – music that doesn't need to be called rock, jazz, or anything else – and which just revels in its existence over the few short minutes of its spin on the turntable! If you've dug the other Stag O Lee compilations, you'll find plenty to love here – and titles include "Wombat Twist" by Glenn & Christy, "Street Fight" by Phil Campos, "Almost Eighteen" by Honey & The Bees, "Ali Baba's Tent" by The New Starts, "Cleopatra 30 BC" by The Fables, "Chinese Junk" by Lenny Troy, "Twisting In The Jungle" by Buddy Bow, "Beat History" by Jack Franklin & The Rock-Its, "Wing Ding"by The Jokers, and "Days Are Numbered" by Al Nathan.

Pre-reggae tracks from Jamaica – pulled from a time when the island nation was sharing a lot more of its musical sound with other spots in the Caribbean – including a fair bit of raw calypso grooves too! Most of these tracks are nice and spare – usually a bit under-polished, so that the vocals and percussion come through loud and clear – a lot different than more mainstream approaches to this music during the time – as you might expect from material that all came from vintage 45 and 78rpm singles! Titles include "Not Me" by Denzil Laing Trio, "Summertime" by Little G, "Carnival Jamaica" by Lord Rigby, "Machanne Chabon" by Henri Debs Quintet, "Mary Ann Brown Skin Gal" by Denzil Laing Trio, "The Naughty Little Flea" by Lord Flea, "Hol' Im Joe" by Lord Lebby, "Love" by Lord Flea, "Miss Goosey" by Lord Jouer, and "Perfect Love" by Count Lasher.

A fascinating collection of rare Chinese 78rpm recordings – all commercially-released singles from the 30s and 40s, but with a sound that's completely timeless! The focus here is often on singers – and a number of the tracks are Chinese opera, in a style that's quite different than the European genre of the same name – tunes that might tell a story in an emotive way, but often at a spare level that's very personal, and which usually features just a spare bit of instrumentation in the mix. The presentation mostly offers up the singles as you'd hear them straight from a 78rpm player – stark and bold, with a bit of crackle here and there – and the set features work by Zhong Zheng Shun Ziang Ban, Xiao Hong Xin, Old Choy Bo Fung Troupe, Fukien Opera, Bai Ju Rong, and Lao Gek Chuong Hiang.

A great companion piece to the album I Don't Feel At Home In This World Anymore – and, like that one, a set that's made up of so many different and unusual strands of music – in the best Mississippi Records style! Much of this work hails from the 78rpm generation – and the music includes both American folk and country, and sounds recorded by a variety of overseas artists – some maybe a bit far from home, hence the title. Guitar figures strongly on many sides – in a variety of formats – and titles include "Smyrneiko Minore" by Marika Papagika, "I Believe I'll Go Back Home" by Blind Willie Davis, "Hillbilly Hula" by Jenks Tex Carmen, "Depend On Me" by Group, "Ninuvina (part 1)" by TR Mahalingam, "Aurora En Pekin" by Sexteto Bolona, "Dziko La Afrika" by G Wayawaya, and "Pyara Nazar Nahin" by Khansahib Abdul Karim Khan.

University Of Vice (Spain), Mid 30s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Latin sounds from the glory days of the 78rpm format – music that predates most of the more popular modes that would hit our shores in the postwar years – presented on a range of rare singles that pack a nicely powerful punch! Most of these numbers are pretty lively and rhythmic – often with grooves that come as strongly from the percussion as they do from the interplay of guitar, bass, and other stringed instruments – punctuated by piano and topped with some strong vocals too! The set's not much in the way of liner notes, but most of the music here is from the mid 30s, despite the larger date range in the title – and tracks include "Suavecito" by Weeno Bravo & Gody, "El Mondonguero" by Sexteto Columbia, "Negro Bombon" by Orquesta Estrellas Cubanas, "El Panquelero" by Orquesta De Don Azpiazu, "Sabrosona" by Orquesta De Lazaro Quintero, "Pero Que Picazon" by Orquesta Chepin Choven, "Pimienta Y Sal" by Orquesta De Paulina Alvarez, "Invitacion A La Rumba" by Orquesta De Oscar Calle, and "Los Carnavales De Oriente" by Trio Matamoros.

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".

They're not lying with the title of this one – as the set's a killer collection of rural blues, with a legacy that goes way beyond the glory days of the genre in the 20s and 30s! The collection's a great one from Mississippi – exactly the kind of pre-LP material that the label's been so great at over the years – with an ear for the really sort of special cuts that are normally only the province of collectors of rare 78rpm recordings! Titles include "Cool Drink Of Water Blues" by Tommy Johnson, "Future Blues" by Willie Brown, "Sic Em Dogs On Me" by Washington White, "Be True Be True" by Henry Simms, "Rambling Love" by Dick Reinhardt, and "Go Away From My Door" by Monroe Moe Jackson.
