Raymond ScottOn The Swinging Side ... LP
Sounds Of Swing, Late 40s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Goofy swingin' stuff from the great bandleader who also managed to arrange music for cartoons, invent his own instruments, and come up with wild studio techniques. This LPs got 16 tracks of hard to find 78 rpm material. The groups are pretty small, and feature some great unknown players. Tracks include "Magic Garden", "Twilight Zone", "Toonerville Trolley", and "At An Arabian House Party". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red vinyl pressing. Cover has some aging.)

Sea DersSea Ders ... LP
Groovie, Late 60s. New Copy ... $9.99
A great record with all the known recordings of the Sea-Ders (or Cedars) – a beat combo from mid-to-late 60s Lebanon – and a pretty much perfect mix of period rock & roll hooks and rhythms with Middle Eastern string buzz in place of a Stratocaster! The vocals are in English and the tunes are as catchy and accessible as can be – with either an electric bouzouki or oud bring the stringed heat – and it's a perfect fit! Includes "For Your Information", "Hide If You Want To Hide". "I Like The Way", "Thanks A Lot", "Better Loved", "Undecidedly", "'Cause I Do Care" and more. 8 tracks in all – and some nice back cover notes by Mike Stax of Ugly Things Magazine. LP, Vinyl record album
(Plays at 45 RPM.)

Cal TjaderHuracan ... LP
Crystal Clear, 1978. Near Mint- ... $11.99
Obscure direct to disc recording that plays at 45 RPM, which means that it's a bit shorter than usual – but the record more than makes up for that defect with its excellent sound and (more importantly) excellent batch of grooves. Cal's vibes are backed by Clare Fischer on electric piano, Willie Bobo on timbales, and a bunch of other good west coast players that include Victor Pantoja, Pancho Sanches, and Gary Foster. Titles include "Funquiado", "Tres Palabras", and "Huracan" – and the album is probably Tjader's best Latin LP of the 70s! 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 ... $21.99
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.

✨✧ Ennio MorriconeIl Mio Nome E Nessuno (My Name Is Nobody) (2015 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
AMS (Italy), 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Very strange Morricone score to this even stranger western from the early 70s! Sure, the core of the material is 70s spaghetti scoring, but the instrumentation is incredibly weird – and includes "squishy" electric keyboards, rolling vocal choruses, whistles, clock ticking, and more! There's an incredible amount of humor here, and the soundtrack stands as one of Morricone's more mad moments from a time when he was otherwise fairly subtle in his writing. Bruno Nicolai conducted the work, and titles include "Il Mio Nome E Nessuno", "Uno Strano Barbiere", "Piu Delle Valchirie", and "Con I Migliori Auguri". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition 45 rpm colored vinyl pressing!)

✨✧ Jack WhiteLazaretto (180 gram vinyl – with download and 2 vinyl-only hidden tracks) ... LP
Third Man, 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The most stylistically sprawling record yet from Jack White! White's trajectory from Detroit garage-blues-punk wunderkind to Nashville record biz provocateur/label magnate is pretty damn impressive – and he really lets his far-reaching impulses fly on Lazzaretto. Unpredictable twists and turns abound, but it's all held together by an undercurrent of pummeling, unpretentious rock and roll, with a rootsy swagger. Ever upping the ante on hella cool vinyl releases, Lazarretto is a 3-speed "Ultra LP" – with a 33 1/3 main track list, and 2 hidden tracks beneath the center labels, one that plays at 45 and one that plays at 78. Oh, and also a hologram visual effect. We're thinking that maybe his next record will summon a genie that grants you 3 wishes. Titles include "Three Women", "Lazaretto", "Temoprary Ground", "Would You Fight For My Love?", "High Ball Stepper", "Just One Drink", "Alone In My Home", That Black Bat Licorice", "Entitlement", "I Think I Found The Culprit" and "Want And Able". LP, Vinyl record album
(A 3-speed "Ultra LP" – with 2 vinyl-only tracks hidden beneath the center labels – one that plays at 78 RPM, and one at 45 RPM! Also includes album download.)

✨✧ LionsSoul Riot ... LP
Stones Throw, 2014. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes download! Pressed at 45 rpm – for even more booming sound!)

✨✧ Poison GirlsHex ... LP
Water Wing, 1979. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Key work from one of the great groups of the late 70s female punk scene in the UK – the legendary Poison Girls, headed up by the even more legendary Vi Subversa! Vi's got a vocal approach that's different than some of her contemporaries – nastier, but in a more mature way – which really gives the lyrics this biting quality, especially on political themes – kind of a precursor for the Crass sound a few years to come. Titles include "Old Tarts Song", "Bremen Song", "Under The Doctor", "Reality Attack", and "Political Love". LP, Vinyl record album
(45 rpm EP.)

✨✧ Miles DavisDig ... LP
Prestige, 1951. Near Mint- ... $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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Nice Japanese pressing – from the 70s!)

Orgasmo SonoreOmaggio A Bruno Nicolai Ed Alle Sue Musiche Per Il Cinema Giallo ... LP
Cineploit (Austria), 2013. New Copy Gatefold ... $24.99
Maybe the coolest record ever from this always-great group – one of the best contemporary acts to really get the sound of vintage soundtracks right – working here in a special package that features unusual vinyl, a great cover, and some amazing music within! The tunes are all from older Italian films of the 70s, all composed by the great Bruno Nicolai – but served up here by Orgasmo Sonore in this sublime blend of keyboards, strings, and other great elements – all with the feel of some vintage Ennio Morricone production! The LP plays at 45rpm, for extra-great fidelity – but it still features a total of six tracks that include "Panic In The Elevator", "Magico Incontro", "Sabba", "La Dama Rossa Uccide Sette Volte", "Gatti Rossi In Un Labirinto Di Vetro", and "La Coda Dello Scorpione". LP, Vinyl record album

Alexis ZoumbasLament For Epirus – 1926 to 1928 (2014 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Angry Mom, Late 20s. New Copy ... $24.99
An amazing violinist from Greece, but one who recorded in New York during the 20s – on a host of rare 78rpm material presented in this lavish set! Alexis Zoumbas has a wonderfully melancholy feel to his instrument – a style that mixes virtuostic passages with these deeper, bluer qualities that are more folkloric – often supported with just a bit of work on acoustic bass for the recordings, or a bit of very cool cymbalom as well! The quality of the package and music reproductions puts this one right up there with collections of ethnic 78s on Tompkins Square or Honest Jons – and titles include "Alimbeis", "Tzamara Arvanitiko", "Syrtos Sta Dyo", "Frasia", and "Epirotiko Mirologi".

Juke Box Jam (UK), Late 40s/1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 6 x 10inch & Book ... $69.99
The great second volume of this genre-defining series – a set that looks at a really unique strain of R&B in the 50s – a special sort of groove that mixed together jazz, Latin, and other soulful styles! There's plenty of percussion on most of these numbers, but there's also lots of bluesy elements too – electric guitar, tenor, and firey piano – mixed with soulful vocals that leap wonderfully out of the vivid arrangements – at a level that really makes these tunes pretty darn unique! Some cuts have a vibe that's like jump blues, taking a drink of 50s Latin – while others almost have a Spanish Harlem sort of hybrid, but years before the later Latin Soul scene – a really vibrant mix of modes that keeps things exciting throughout. Titles include "All I Have Is You" by Johnny Oliver, "I Love Your Many Ways" by Lincoln Chase, "Calypso Blues" by Zilla Mayes, "Jimmy's Jive" by Jimmy Nolen, "All Night Long" by Four Blazes, "She Wants To Mambo" by The Chanters, "Satisfied" by Billy Emerson, "Chano" by Ron Rico with Sax Kari, "Later Gator" by Freddie Mitchell, "Denga Denga" by Ashton Savoy, "Gee I Love You" by John McKinnye & The Premiers, and "Summertime" by Red Saunders. Totally amazing package, too – in an "album", like a set of vintage 78s – with 6 pieces of 10" vinyl that play at 45rpm for excellent sound, and a very cool booklet of notes, too. Also includes four tracks not on the other 2LP or CD sets! LP, Vinyl record album

VariousLet No One Judge You – Early Recordings From Iran 1906 to 1933 (4LP set) (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Honest Jons (UK), 1900s/1910s/1920s/1930s. Sealed 4LPs ... $28.99
An amazing portrait of Iran in the years before WWII – pulled from rare 78rpm recordings which are remastered here beautifully, to present some stunning sounds we'd never have heard otherwise! There's a really unique flavor to most of this music – sounds that lie at the crossroads of the east, and which spring out with some surprisingly modern inflections, while still coming across with a very simple, timeless appeal too. Most of the instrumentation is on percussion and regional stringed instruments, and the vocals can be richly expressive – often with inflections and range that far surpass the instrumentation on the discs. As with the other Honest Jons collections of global 78rpm material, the whole thing is beautifully put together – from the sound quality, to the notes, to the very hefty selection of tracks. Titles include work by Iran Od Dowleh Helen, Seyyed Hoseyn Taherzadeh, Akhtar, Parvaneh, Ebrahim, Javad Badi'Zadeh, and many others. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Cecil BarfieldGeorge Mitchell Collection (with download) ... LP
Big Legal Mess, 1976. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Timeless work by Georgia bluesman Cecil Barfield – material recorded in the mid 70s, issued in the 21st Century – but done with a quality that could go back to the 78rpm generation! Barfield has this amazing vocal style – strongly inflected at times, with this warble that makes for a strong musical element next to his acoustic guitar – almost Malian at times, and very different than any other blues singer we can think of. The recording quality is excellent – clear, clean, and very unadorned – and titles include "Love Blues", "Tell Me Rider", "Captain Had A Bulldog", "Big Legged Woman", "Five Long Years", "Root Blues", and "Talk To Your Daughter".

Yazoo, Late 20s. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
He may be blind, but he's plenty satisfied – and so are we, with this excellent package of rare 78rpm recordings from Willie Johnson! 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".

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.

Yazoo, 1929/1975. Used ... Out Of Stock
No hoke here – just a host of rare 78rpm recordings from The Hokum Boys – a wonderfully tight combo with a nice degree of jazz in their music, too! In a way, the tunes here represent a great bridge between blues and early jazz – and point the way towards the rise of acoustic swing in the 30s – thanks to the combo's great piano and guitar-driven rhythms! Vocals are often quite playful – hinting at a Cab Calloway style – and titles include "Pat A Foot Blues", "Selling That Stuff", "It's All Gone Now", "Only The Blues", "Gambler's Blues", "Went To His Head", and "Let Me Have It". LP, Vinyl record album

EMI (UK), 1979. Used 3LPs ... Out Of Stock
A chilling album that still makes our spines quiver, even after 20 years! This is probably the most perfect realization of the ideas that John Lydon was trying to explore with PIL, and the set's an incredible mix of throbbing creepy basslines, pounding drums, and edgey guitar parts. The cut "Pop Tones" is worth the price of the LP alone, but on this double length set, you get more tracks, including "No Radio", "Albatross", "Careering", and "Memories". Way better than the Sex Pistols ever were – and proof that the best music from the punk generation came after 1977. Three records that play at 45rpm – for amazing fidelity! LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing – with insert! Box has aged over the years – very common for this – but further proof of its originality!)

Tompkins Square, Late 20s/Early 30s. New Copy 3LP ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful collection of rare gospel material from the early years of the genre – all originally issued on 78rpm recordings, but lovingly remastered and collected in the usual top-shelf style we've come to expect from the folks at Tompkins Square! There's a nice range of styles here, and overall most of the tracks are relatively spontaneous – almost more field recording in approach, as if someone's captured a key moment in a church or revival meeting – when a group or singer are bursting out in song, or a speaker is hitting a particularly moving passage in a sermon! Includes work by Jubilee Gospel Team, Primitive Baptist Choir Of North Carolina, Roosevelt Graves & Brother, Rev TE Weems, McCollum's Sanctified Singers, Rev William Ransom, Mother McCollum, Edward W Clayborn, and many others.

Vintage material from the key years of calypso in Trinidad – pulled from a host of 78rpm recordings, and presented here in the usual lovely Mississippi Records tyle! Instrumentation is often relatively spare – lively Latin-styled rhythms with acoustic guitar or piano, and some occasional jazzier inflections on horns – all to support the playfully political lyrics in the lead! Titles include "When Me Body Lay down In The Grave" by The Lion, "Lopez Contreras" by Codello's Top Hatters Orchestre, "Inequality Of Life" by Atilla The Hun, "Under The British Commander" by Emery Cournard Serenaders, and "Exploiting" by The Caresser.

Document/Third Man, 1930s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
15 early recordings by this legendary group – a southern string ensemble who nicely skirted the space between early blues and hillbilly music – heard here on a set of vintage 78rpm recordings done for the Okeh label! The package presents tracks recorded in February and June of 1930 – laid out in chronological order, and presented here with surprisingly great sound after all these years. The use of fiddle alone is worth the price of admission – especially amidst the rootsier elements in the rhythms – and titles include "Driving That Thing", "Alberta Blues", "The Sheik Waltz", "The Jazz Fiddler", "Jake Leg Blues", "Back To Mississippi", and "We Are Both Feeling Good Right Now". LP, Vinyl record album
