✨✧ Vince Guaraldi TrioCharlie Brown Christmas (2LP 180 gram 45 RPM) ... LP
Fantasy, 1965. Used 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An amazing record – one with a depth that goes way beyond its simple roots, and which has gone on to become one of the true Christmas classics of the 20th Century! Although a Christmas soundtrack, the album's more of a tapestry of sadness, longing, and loss – the best qualities that always emerge in true Christmas classics – underscoring the blue side of the season that's always lurking around corners from the happier moments. Vince Guaraldi penned this score back when he was a rising talent on the San Francisco scene – and in a way, it was almost his musical contribution to the cartoon that made it such a lasting favorite – even over and above the appeal of the famous animated characters. Most tunes are simple piano ones, but played with a phrasing that's beautifully timeless – and the few vocal numbers feature voices from the cartoon, singing softly with the music. Titles include the classic "Linus and Lucy" – plus "My Little Drum", "Christmas Is Coming", "Christmas Time Is Here", "Skating", and "Fur Elise". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Los TerrificosGo South – Vaya Pa'l Sur (2LP 45 rpm pressing) ... LP
Peace & Rhythm, 2016. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Los Terrificos really live up to their name here – in a set of sounds that take Latin roots and push them into the trippy territory you might expect from the cover! The group's headed up by Ray Lugo, who we love from other creative contemporary Latin projects – and he's really outdone himself here, by drawing deep from a range of South American rhythms – complicated changes that are sometimes served up in more classic instrumental arrays, sometimes with more unusual keyboard lines that give the whole thing a strong 21st Century vibe! Ray sings on the record, but the vocals are really the lesser focus – as the core energy comes from interplay between guitar lines, keyboards, bass, percussion, and some other sweet electric touches. Titles include "La Mordida", "A Correr", "La Pantera", "Todos Pa'L Norte", "Muerte En La Galera", "Cachas De Oro", "El Camino Azul", and "Polvo Plomo Poder". So heavy, the whole thing had to be pressed as two 45rpm records for maximum sound! LP, Vinyl record album

United FrontOHM – Unit Of Resistance ... LP
RPM, 1981. Very Good+ ... $19.99
Early 80s free-ish material from this lesser known but very hip west coast group. The style here is in a mode that mixes part soul jazz influences with modernist post-modal, post-free soloing in a style that doesn't seem so out of place considering this group appears to hail from the Bay area, very much in a Strata East vein. The lineup is Anthony Brown on percussion, Mark Izu on bass, Lewis Jordan on alto sax and voice, George Sams on trumpet and Jason Michaels contributing piano to two pieces, and the whole set is made up of original material, with 5 tracks in all, including "Nomadic Winds", Nothing Is More Precious Than Independence & Freedom", "I Will Be Free", "Ichi Ni San" and 'What IO Heard Once".

ValentinesSound Of The Valentines (2016 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
RPM (UK), Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
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".

LionsSoul Riot ... LP
Stones Throw, 2014. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $18.99
The Lions seem to get deeper and deeper with each new release – moving past their start as a funk band with a focus on Kingston sounds – into a group who've got a really fresh feel of their own! Sure, some cuts here are great reggae numbers – the kind of mellow, head-nodding cuts The Lions have always given us – but there's also some more complicated elements going on too, these little touches of darkness at times, especially on the rhythms, which can break from obvious patterns into something nicely unique. Plenty of guests help flesh out the tunes – including Malik The Freq Moore, Black Shakespeare, Alex Desert, and Myron Glasper – and titles include "My Girl", "Going Nowhere", "Rhythm Rock", "Feels Good", "At A Loss", "Smoke & Mirrors", and "When It Rains".

Pepe Sanchez Y Su Rock BandRegresion (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Pharaway Sounds (Spain), 1976. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $26.99
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

✨✧ 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 limited vinyl was released as part of the Renegades Of Rhythm tour by DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist – in honor of the legendary Afrika Bambaataa! The LP features two 33 1/3 rpm sides – "Zulu Funk I" and "Zulu Funk II". LP, Vinyl record album

Kenny BurrellWeaver Of Dreams (4LP 180gram pressing – 45rpm) ... LP
Columbia/Classic, 1961. Sealed 4LPs ... $79.99
One of the rarest Kenny Burrell albums – and one of the most unusual, too! Unlike other records, on which Kenny just plays guitar – this set has the jazzman also doing a bit of singing, sweetly crooning alongside his instrument with a surprising amount of charm! Burrell's got the feel of some backroom singer in the bebop years – deep-toned and mellow, but still pretty swinging – and the album's a great illustration of this overlooked side of his talents. The group features Tommy Flanagan on piano, and Bobby Jaspar plays a bit of tenor sax at times – on titles that include "Hootchie Koo", "A Fine Romance", "The Blues Is Awful Mean", "The More I See You", "I'll Buy You A Star", "Afternoon In Paris", and "Weaver Of Dreams".

NirvanaIncesticide (180 gram pressing – 2 x 45rpm LP) ... LP
Geffen, 1992. New Copy (reissue)... On January 13, 2017
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".

Black Ovation/Dub Mir, 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
An apocalyptic dub gem – one that features the Rhythm Twins teaming up with Scientist and Jimmy Riley – for a world-ending batch of extra-heavy proportions! By the time of this set, Scientist had solidified his position as the top contender for the heavyweight championship of dub – and he keeps up the heat with his spare dub renditions of some of Riley's finest rhythms – pushing Sly & Robbie way to the front of the mix, which gets no complaint from us! Winston Wright, Sky Juice, Skully Sims, Mikey Chung, Rad Bryan, Binkey Brice, Clive Hunt, Dean Fraser and Nambo Robinson all make appearances here and there – ducking in and out of the dubby maze of tracks – and titles include "Invasion Of Iraq", "Ethiopia Rock", "Zimbabwe Dub", "Dub Overation", "united Jam Dub", "Jah Instruction", "World At War", "Iran Revolution", and "Monkey Spanner".

Geffen, Early 90s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The posthumous self-titled Nirvana compilation – a set that you can quibble with as far as what was, and was not included – but nearly every song is a monumental classic! Too succinct, maybe, but if you don't already own each of the proper albums and the great leftovers comp Incesticide, this is a heck of a great assortement of the band at its best. Starts with "You Know You're Right", the last Nirvana song recorded by the band before Kurt Cobain's death, and from there it's one classic after another, including "About A Girl", "Been A Son", "Sliver", "Smells Like Teen Spirit", "Come As You Are", "Lithium", "In Bloom", "Heart-Shaped Box", "Pennyroyal Tea", "Rape Me", "Dumb", and 2 Unplugged cuts – "All Apologies" and their cover of "The Man Who Sold World".

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".

Savoy, Early 50s. New Copy ... $19.99
A nice little collection of some of Dizzy Gillespie's best bop material for Savoy – tunes that were originally recorded as 78rpm singles – then issued together on this classic album of all-star players! The tunes are short, catchy, and often very grooving – that mix of whimsy and modernism that made Dizzy stand out from the start – handled by a few different groups of players, with musicians who include Milt Jackson on vibes, John Coltrane on tenor, Wynton Kelly on piano, and Percy Heath on bass. Titles include "Tin Tin Deo", "Star Dust", "The Bluest Blues", "The Champ", "Birk's Works", "Caravan", "Time On My Hands", and "Ooh Shoo Be Doo Bee". LP, Vinyl record album

Roscoe HolcombeAcross The Rocky Mountain ... LP
Jeanne Dielman, 1959. New Copy ... $22.99
The title here might be more appropriate as "Across the Appalachian Mountain" – given that Roscoe Holcomb's music has deep deep roots in the ancient sounds of the east – those musical currents that were brought over from England, then completely transformed in the hills of Kentucky, Tennessee, and the Carolinas! The recordings capture Holcomb at his best – fantastic banjo work that seems more linked to acoustic blues guitar than familiar uses of the instrument – and vocals that have incredible inflections that might put Bill Monroe or Ralph Stanley to shame – if Roscoe had ever gotten the chance to record in some big label studio. But it's also the spareness of these sides that enforces their charm – the kind of power that you'd hear in pre-WWII 78rpm recordings – but captured on tape at the end of the 50s. Titles include "Stingy Woman", "Cripple Creek", "Graveyard Blues", "Coney Island", "Hills Of Mexico", "Black Eyed Susie", and "Single Girl". LP, Vinyl record album

Furry LewisGood Morning Judge – Recorded By George Mitchell in 1962 (with bonus download) ... LP
Fat Possum, 1962/1967. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99 17.99
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".

Buddy MossGeorge Mitchell Collection (with download) ... LP
Big Legal Mess, 1963. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99 18.99
One of the earliest recordings in the excellent George Mitchell collection of blues – an early 60s document of the solo work of Buddy Moss, a guitarist who'd begun his career with the Georgia Cotton Pickers in the early 30s, but had been off the radar for many years! The blues revival of the 60s brought him back with a surprisingly strong sound – as if the passage of years hadn't dampened his talents a bit – and the whole record feels like some batch of acoustic blues material that might have come out during the early 78rpm years, but with recording quality that's much better overall. Buddy sings and plays acoustic guitar – and titles include "In The Evening", "Amy", "Cold Rainy Day", "Blue Shadow Falling", "Unfinished Business", "Thousand Woman Blues", and "That Will Never Happen".

Eric SidayUltra Sonic Perception (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Berry/Dual Planet (Australia), Early 60s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $11.99 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

Kay StarrSwinging With The Starr ... LP
Liberty, Mid 40s. Very Good- ... $9.99
Great early work from Kay Starr – a singer who cut plenty of pop in the 50s, but who's working in much jazzier territory on this material from the mid 40s! The sides were all originally issued as 78rpm singles, and later put together as the full LP pictured on the cover – and Starr's trademark tone is slightly subdued here, and the overall approach is a bit bluesier overall. Kay's nicely expressive, but never goes too far over the top – and the backings are usually small combo and swinging, with some slight trad elements in the instrumentation. Titles include "I'm Confessin", "Sweet Lorraine", "All Of Me", "Honeysuckle Rose", "Love Me Or Leave Me", "I Cried For You", and "Baby Won't You Please Come Home". LP, Vinyl record album

A really great idea for a Christmas record – a set that pulls together a host of special Holiday tracks recorded during the big band generation, and serves them up in a really wonderful collection! Some of this material is from the 78rpm generation, and most are mono – and they work together here in a mix of vocal and instrumental numbers that go way way past the obvious! The cover's maybe a bit mainstream, but the choice of tracks is very thoughtful – and titles include "Snowfall" by Claude Thornhill, "Don't Wait Till The Night Before Christmas" by Eddy Duchin, "Winter Weather" by Peggy Lee & Benny Goodman, "It's Winter Again" by Isham Jones, "Let It Snow" by Woody Herman, "A Wonderful Winter" by Charlie Spivak, "Jingle Bells" by Glenn Miller, "Hello Mr Kringle" by Kay Kyser, "Little Jack Frost Get Lost" by Frankie Carle & Marjorie Hughes, and "I Want You For Christmas" by Russ Morgan.

A slew of vintage gospel material from the 78rpm generation – some of it with a definite country tinge, some of it a bit more bluesy – and all of it great! The package really lives up to the shellac-digging strengths of other compilations on Mississippi – and really opens us up to a world we might never have experienced otherwise – wonderful rare material that already great on its own, but which resonates strongly in the company of all the other tracks on the set – pressed up on vinyl, which furthers the classic feel of the music too! Titles include "I Had A Dream" by Lottie Bracy, "I'll Be Rested" by Blind Roosevelt Graves, "I Can't Tarry" by Two Gospel Keys, "You Can't Hide" by Mother McCollum, "Where The Soul Of A Man Never Dies" by The Anglin Brothers, "Gods Little Birds" by Sister OM Terrell, and "No Drunkard Can Enter" by The Delmore Brothers.

This isn't an actual full length LP, but rather 2 previously unissued tracks from the Somethin' Else sessions, packaged up beautifully and issued on vinyl only in Japan! These tunes, along with the rest of the album was recorded at a time when Adderley was working with Miles Davis – and as such, the session features a group that includes Miles, blowing in a cool tone that's a perfect offset to Cannonball's more soulful style. The rest of the group includes Hank Jones, Sam Jones, and Art Blakey – and like John Coltrane's Blue Train, the record's more of an "special session" than the usual Blue Note album, but the strength of the players make it one of the more memorable records of its day, so it's even more special to have these extra tracks!

✨✧ Miles DavisDig ... LP
Prestige, 1951. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".
