✨✧ Roland KirkI Talk With The Spirits ... CD
Verve, 1964. Used ... Just Sold Out!
One of Roland Kirk's moodiest albums – and a record that really helped him find a big new audience in the 60s! The approach here is a bit different than some of Kirk's more bombastic jazz albums from previous years – gentle, and almost spiritual at times – thanks to heavy use of flute, which Kirk explores with a deeply personal tone – easing out gentle lines that really foreshadow the use of the instrument in the post-Coltrane generation! The record has a dark somber tone at times, and a sweetly redemptive one at others – and the other players include Horace Parlan on piano, Bobby Moses on vibes, Michael Fleming on bass, and Walter Perkins on drums – and the album also features a bit of vocals from Crystal-Joy Albert. Titles include "Ruined Castles", "Trees", "I Talk With The Spirits", and Roland's classic "Serenade To A Cuckoo". CD
(Out of print, Verve master edition.)

Konstrukt & Peter BrotzmannEklisia Sunday ... LP
Holidays (Italy), 2016. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
One of the earthiest records we've heard from Peter Brotzmann in years – a record that features his own work on reeds with the Turkish combo Konstrukt – whose enigmatic blend of percussion, guitar, piano, and electric instruments really creates this amazing mood! The live set was recorded with a nice degree of echo – allowing the sounds to fold back on themselves in a really great way, especially the percussion – while more powerful moments are maybe a bit more stark in the mix – such as Brotzmann's bold tenor solos, or the guitar lines – as the music moves from far-out, freewheeling jam – to much more organic, personal moments. LP, Vinyl record album

Little FeatSailin Shoes ... LP
Warner, 1972. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
The second album from Little Feat – and it's a great one! Loose roadhouse blues-y and country rock styled songs – infused with their own weirdness! This is one of those great examples of a band that not only loved, but could play down home American music of many kinds – and add their own personal craft and idiosyncratic charms to whatever they touched. Includes "Easy To Slip", "Cold Cold Cold", "Triple Face Boogie", "Sailin' Shoes", "Cat Fever", "Texas Rose Cafe" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousMod Records Cologne – Gigi Campi Jazz in West Germany 1954 to 1956 (5 x 10 inch LP, 6 x 7 inch, 4CD, & hardcover book) ... LP
Be! (Germany), Mid 50s. New Copy 5 x 10 inch LP, 6 x (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Incredible, simply incredible – way more than just a collection of jazz, and instead a huge document of the postwar scene in Germany during the 50s! The package is a stunning recreation of the Mod Records label – an early project of Gigi Campi, who'd gain greater fame in the 60s for his direction of the Clarke Boland Big Band, and other key jazz projects. The work here is much sharper, and often more modern than Campi projects in later years – very much a precursor to the MPS/Saba modes to come – modern jazz at its best, played by both German and American artists, and originally issued on just 10" and 7" albums at the time! The vinyl component of the set reproduces every single Mod Records release – with great vinyl and heavy covers – including albums by guitarist Attila Zoller, vibist Bill Grah, pianist Roland Kovac, pianist Jutta Hipp, drummer Rudi Sehring, tenorist Hans Koller, altoist Lee Konitz, trombonist Albert Mangelsdorff, and others – presented here in true replicas of five 10" LPs and six 7" EPS – all with original sleeves. The 4CDs offer up the music in digital format – and the huge book is heavy, hardcover, and 12" x 12" – and includes loads of images, notes on the sessions, vintage reviews, and more – and the whole thing even comes with a vintage Mod Records poster too. Stunning stuff – we've never seen another jazz box like it – and a treasure for both the vinyl collector and CD listener! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousPopsters – They Tried To Rock Vol 4 ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Mid 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A very cool collection from the early years of rock and roll – featuring work by an assortment of mainstream pop artists who were very quick to jump on the bandwagon of the new music! The styles here aren't just boring pop attempts to rehash rock, but also show a strong current of R&B at play as well – the kind of sounds that jump blues and other postwar styles had already brought to the mainstream – served up almost in a post-swing mode, with a cool mix of jazzy inflections and electrified instrumentation that's almost a precursor for the sound of popcorn soul! Most tracks are in an upbeat, swinging mode – one that's equally pleasing if you like crossover country from the time, or some of the more playful modes from pop singers too – all with a much wider range than you'd expect from the title and cover. As with other volumes, the notes are great, as is the track selection – and this fourth volume features 33 tracks that include "See Saw" by Don Cornell, "Band Of Gold" by Don Cherry, "Rock Love" by The Fontaine Sisters, "Fujiyama Mama" by Eileen Barton, "Teardrops From My Eyes" by The Hilltoppers, "Lovey Dovey" by Ella Mae Morse, "Bo Diddley" by Jean Dinning, "Susie Q" by The Crewcuts, "Rockabilly Party" by Hugo & Luigi, and "Flip Flop & Fly" by Johnny Ray.

✨✧ VariousSound Of The Grapevine Vol 1 – 24 Modern Soul Dancers ... CD
Grapevine (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
If there's one label we'd trust with our taste in soul, it's the mighty Grapevine label – home to some killer reissues of obscure 60s and 70s work – including a huge amount of excellent tracks that never properly saw the light of day at the time they were recorded! The vibe on this collection is quite unique – a blend of southern and modern styles, in a way that draws a line from Jackson, through Memphis, on up to Chicago and Detroit – mixing modes along the way, and offering up a rich array of tracks that blend the rough and the smooth nicely. There's a deeply personal quality to many of the tunes that we really love – and many of them groove along at a nice mellow midtempo clip – just right for the deeper end of the modern soul dancefloor! The set's overflowing with great work – and features 24 titles that include "I'll Be Around" by Choice Of Colors, "I Wish Our Love Would Last Forever" by Swiss Movement, "Love Is Trying To Get A Hold On Me" by Tavasco, "A Man Can't Be A Man" by Sandra Wright, "Chained" by Percy Stone & The Explosions, "I Need A Man" by The Precious Three, "Is This Really Love" by Don Gardner, "I Need I Need Your Love" by Tony Owens, "I'm Leaving You In Jody's Hands" by Tyree Davis, and "I'm Not Over You" by True Image.

✨✧ VariousTruckers, Kickers, Cowboy Angels – The Blissed-Out Birth Of Country Rock Vol 3 – 1970 ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), 1970. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
1970 was a crucial year for country-tinged rock in the US – a time when the style really came into its own, and both found strong support in the mainstream, and an approach that was hardly just a straight rehasing of its roots! This third volume may well be the best so far in this excellent series – as it showcases a range of key artists who drew strongly on the sounds of Nashville and Bakersfield, but really found ways to make those influences their own – expressing a country aesthetic in the younger voice of the time, at a level that would then go back and influence mainstream country in years to come! As with the other volumes, the package is beautiful – a nice heavy book, filled with thoughtful notes on the tracks – and a total of 38 cuts that include "Tell Me A Song" by Morning, "Silver Moon" by Mike Nesmith & The First National Band, "Hurry Up" by Poco, "Delta Mama Blues" by Townes Van Zant, "He Darked The Sun" by Linda Ronstadt, "God's Own Singer" by Flying Burrito Brothers, "Big Bayou" by Swampwater, "Tobacco Road" by David Allan Coe, "Be Real" by Doug Sahm, "Livin In The Country" by Country, "Just A Country Dream" by Eric Anderson, "California" by Rick Nelson, "Right Before My Eyes" by Moby Grape, and "Biloxi" by Jesse Winchester.

✨✧ VariousUncompromising Expression – The Story Of Blue Note In 75 Singles (5CD set) ... CD
Blue Note, 1940s/1950s/1960s/1970s/1980s/1990s/2000s. New Copy 5CD ... Out Of Stock
A surprisingly cool package from Blue Note Records – especially given its unassuming cover! The 5CD set looks at a really overlooked side of the Blue Note legacy – the label's strong line of 78 and 45 rpm singles over the years – many of which featured different mixes or performances than the better-known album recordings from the time! The set begins with the earliest years of Blue Note – and goes right up to the present, to include some rare promo or download-only tracks too – but the core focus is on the legendary Blue Note years of the 50s, 60s, and early 70s – with a tremendous amount of hard-to-find gems that were originally only issued as 7" records. The package features 75 tracks in all, with a sweet little book on all the material too – which includes all the session/lineup details for each cut – and titles include "The Thin Man" by Art Blakey, "Born To Be Blue" by Wynton Kelly, "Oop Pop A Da" by Bab's 3 Bips & A Bop, "Topsy" by Ike Quebec Swing Seven, "Summertime" by Sidney Bechet, "Safari" by Horace Silver, "Roccus" by Lou Donaldson, "Senor Blues" by Bill Henderson, "Blue Train (part 1)" by John Coltrane, "Oscalypso" by Curtis Fuller, "DB Blues" by Kenny Burrell, "The High & The Mighty" by Jimmy Smith, "Message From Kenya" by Art Blakey & Sabu, "Ain't No Use" by Jimmy Smith & Bill Henderson, "The Rake" by Dizzy Reece, "True Blue" by Tina Brooks, "One Mint Julep" by Freddie Hubbard, "Ernie's Tune" by Dexter Gordon, "Our Miss Brooks" by Harold Vick, "Miss Ann's Tempo" by Grant Green, "Change" by Donald Byrd, "Chicago Damn" by Bobbi Humphrey, "Theme From Electric Surfboard" by Jack McDuff, "Smells Like Teen Spirit" by Robert Glasper, "Holding Onto You" by Derric Hodge, and "I Can't Stand The Rain" by Cassandra Wilson.

✨✧ Doris DayComplete Christmas Collection ... CD
Columbia/Real Gone, Mid 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A full album's worth of Christmas cheer from Doris Day – with a whole lot of bonus tracks too! The core of the set is the 1964 Doris Day Christmas Album – the only full length Christmas album from Doris, and a real standout in the Columbia holiday offerings of the 60s! Doris has a well-developed vocal approach that really brings a lot to the familiar tunes in the set – and her years of on-screen presentation really helps illuminate the songs with a nicely personal feel – never overplayed, but the kind of readings that always used to make tunes like these really sparkle on the TV screen in December. Arrangements are by Pete King, Dick Hazard, and Frank Comstock – and titles include "Let It Snow", "Christmas Present", "White Christmas", "Silver Bells", "Snowfall", "Be A Child At Christmas Time", and "The Christmas Song". CD then includes a whopping 10 more bonus tracks from previous singles and collections – titles that include "I've Got My Love To Keep Me Warm", "Deck The Halls", "Silent Night", "Let No Walls Divide", "Here Comes Santa Claus", and a special "Christmas Greeting From Doris Day".
