John ColtraneOle (Mono 2LP 45 RPM 180 gram pressing) ... LP
Atlantic/ORG, 1961. Sealed 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $39.99
A magnificent record from John Coltrane – one of his earliest expressions of unbridled spirituality, and a session that we've treasured for years! As you might guess from the title, there's a slight Latin focus to the record – but not one that has congas and bongos creating choppy rhythms – most just a bold, driving, modal sort of inspiration – of the sort that allows the tracks to open up and flow with some of the genius that Coltrane would show more fully later on Impulse! But honestly, we'd rate this one right up there with the best modal sides on Impulse – as the record's got a sense of flow and energy that's simply breathtaking – with lots of long tracks that let Coltrane open up on tenor and soprano sax, and which also feature work from Eric Dolphy (under the "nom du date" George Lane) on alto, plus Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, McCoy Tyner on piano, Elvin Jones on drums, and Art Davis and Reggie Workman on twin basses! The title track "Ole" runs for a whopping 18 minutes, and takes up all of side one – and side two features the great numbers "Dahomey Dance" and "Aisha". 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+ ... $9.99
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)... $18.99 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".

✨✧ Roy AyersComin' Home Baby – Herbie Mann Presents The Roy Ayers Quartet ... LP
Columbia (Japan), Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $79.99
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

✨✧ Kenny BurrellFreedom ... LP
Blue Note (Japan), 1963. Very Good+ ... $49.99
A rare set of work by Kenny Burrell – recorded for Blue Note in 1963, but unissued until the time of this early 80s Japanese-only release! The work is amazing – quite different than some of Kenny's other work for Blue Note, in that the tracks are shorter, and apparently recorded with the intention of releasing the material on 45 rpm singles. Kenny's tone is great – lean, mean, and perfect for the setting – a masterpiece of economy and soul. And players include Stanley Turrentine, Herbie Hancock, Bill English, and Ray Barretto on one session; and Seldon Powell, Hank Jones, and Osie Johnson on another. There's some great twists and turns to the tunes – including Baretto's conga licks, tasty flute from Powell, and even a bit of organ from Jones – and titles include "G Minor Bash", "K Twist", "Freedom", "The Good Life", and "Loie".

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)... $18.99
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.

Crown/United, 1957. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The very first full length album from BB King – a killer collection of previous singles for the RPM Records label, served up as a bold statement of King's early genius! The record announces its presence right from the very first note – that brilliant blend of effortless electric guitar solo work and completely charismatic vocals that made BB such a star, right from the get-go – and which maybe comes through even more clearly here than in some of his overproduced material from later decades! Many tracks have nicely jumping backings by the great Maxwell Davis – and titles include "Please Love Me", "Bad Luck", "3 O'Clock Blues", "Ten Long Years", "Sweet Little Angel", "You Upset Me Baby", and a classic early take on "Every Day I Have The Blues".

Kenny BurrellWeaver Of Dreams (4LP 180gram pressing – 45rpm) ... LP
Columbia/Classic, 1961. Sealed 4LPs ... $69.99
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".

Miles DavisNefertiti (45rpm – 180 gram pressing) ... LP
Columbia/Mobile Fidelity, 1967. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $39.99
Dark genius from the always-amazing Miles Davis Quintet of the 60s – a set that's a bit more subtle than some of the group's other efforts, but no less powerful – and virtually a blueprint for countless changes to come in jazz during the next few decades! The interplay of Davis' trumpet, Wayne Shorter's tenor, and Herbie Hancock's piano is worth the price of admission alone – a force that seems to flow of its own direction, pulled three ways equally, but always emerging as a sound greater than its parts. And adding in the subtle pulse of Ron Carter on bass and nearly melodic drums of Tony Williams, the sound is even more incredible – a well-crafted and evocative sound that's far more than jazz! Titles include versions of Herbie's "Riot" and "Madness", Shorter's "Nefertiti" and "Pinocchio", and Williams' "Hand Jive". Double 180 gram audiophile pressing from Mobile Fidelity – plays at 45rpm!

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 beautiful album that more than lives up to its evocative title – an early session from John Coltrane, filled with long tracks that slide along brilliantly! As with many other classic Prestige albums from Trane, backing is by the trio of Red Garland piano, Paul Chambers bass, and Art Taylor drums – all holding back nicely when Coltrane opens up on his solos, but also coloring the tunes with soulful lyricism in a masterful understatement. The sound is about as classic as you can get during these early years in The Great One's career – and titles include "Traneing In", "Slow Dance", "Soft Lights & Sweet Music", and "Bass Blues".

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".

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".

John ColtraneAtlantic Years In Mono (6LP Box Set) ... LP
Atlantic, Early 60s. Near Mint- 6LP Box Set ... $99.99
The early genius of John Coltrane – summed up perfectly on his albums for Atlantic Records! Coltrane was really going through some amazing changes here – picking up on some of his more modal and freewheeling solo expressions, while also able to hang back in some of the more soulful moments of his previous work on Prestige – criss-crossing jazz territory that few would touch this well again, even though Coltrane continues to influence so many with these records! The package presents five full albums in mono – all of them classics – Giant Steps (with the title track, "Naima", "Mr PC", and "Cousin Mary"), Bags & Trane (a duet session with vibist Milt Jackson), Ole Coltrane (with the incredible side-long title cut), Coltrane Plays The Blues, and The Avant Garde (an amazing collaboration with trumpeter Don Cherry).

The music here is all from vintage 78s, and is a definite precursor to later cajun sounds – but done at a level that's more acoustic blues styled overall – with guitar as the lead instrument alongside the vocal, and some occasional other work on violin.

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".

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- ... $6.99
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

Juke Box Jam (UK), Late 40s/1950s/Early 60s. Sealed ... $59.99
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
(Still in the outer shipping box.)

VariousNew Deal Blues – 1933 to 1939 ... LP
Mamlish, 1930s. New Copy (reissue)... $15.99
Raw country blues from the 30s – a set that focuses on the shifting modes of the southern styles of the time – and brings into focus the kind of sounds that would really take off in the decade to come! The work here may not be as well-known as some of the more collected, more fetishized blues material from the time – and that's what makes the collection so great – as it reminds us that we've still got so much to discover in the 78rpm underground of the pre-war years. Titles include "Meat Cutter Blues" by Joe McCoy, "Howling Man Blues" by One Arm Slim, "Whiskey & Women" by Black Ace, "Sweet Sixteen" by Walter Davis, "Firewood Man" by Sonny Scott, "You Can't Take It Baby" by Bumble Bee Slim, "Keep It To Yourself" by Memphis Minnie, "Don't Do It No More" by Bo Carter, and "Memphis Fives" by Lee Green.

✨✧ Milt Jackson (Modern Jazz Quartet)First Q (aka Modern Jazz Quartet) ... LP
Savoy, 1951/1952. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Some of the earliest material ever recorded by the Modern Jazz Quartet – early 50s sides that were originally issued as 78rpm singles! Some of the material was first released under the name of the Milt Jackson Quartet – but featured the lineup of Jackson on vibes, John Lewis piano, Percy Heath bass, and Kenny Clarke on drums. Yet other tracks on the set have bassist Ray Brown in for Heath and drummer Al Jones in for Clarke – both players who make for a slightly different groove in the company of Jackson and Lewis. Tunes are short, but already show that Lewis love of chromatic tones – and titles include "Yesterdays", "Love Me Pretty Baby", "Milt Meets Sid", "Moving Nicely", "D&E", "True Blues", and "Autumn Breeze". LP, Vinyl record album
