Tim BuckleyLady Give Me Your Key – The Unissued 1967 Solo Acoustic Sessions ... LP
Future Days, 1967. New Copy ... $22.99 24.98
A lost treasure for any fan of Tim Buckley – material from two different sessions recorded in 1967, both of which include a few songs that never appeared elsewhere! As the title implies, the recordings here are acoustic – mostly with guitar and Buckley's vocals very much upfront in the mix, at a level that traces an even deeper line back to folk music – but which, throughout, is always graced by that amazing sense of phrasing that made Tim unlike any of his contemporaries! The stripped-down setting is a fantastic one for his vocals – which are possibly even more mindblowing without any sort of studio arrangement or fancy production. Material comes from one rare reel-to-reel tape, only recently discovered – and a rare acetate of another session – and the sound quality for both is great. The package comes with detailed notes on the material, and an in-depth interview with co-lyricism Larry Beckett – and titles include "Sixface", "Contact", "Pleasant Street", "Lady Give Me Your Key", "Once Upon A Time", "Marigold", "Carnival Song", "She's Back Again", and "I Can't Leave You Lovin Me".

✨✧ VariousWonder Of Stevie 3 – Presented By DJ Spinna ... LP
BBE (UK), 1970s/2016. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
An incredible collection of Stevie Wonder cover versions – different versions of familiar tunes, but ones that really manage to sparkle with all the righteous soul of the Stevie himself! It's been over a decade since DJ Spinna brought us the last version of his Wonder Of Stevie series – and during that time, he's managed to come up with a huge amount of great tracks that make the whole thing go way way deeper than before – not just cuts that copy the Wonder mode, but which seem to draw strong inspiration from its genius, and really soar to the skies! Much of the music here resonates with a charm that's located around the years of albums like Music Of My Mind and Innervisions, with all the jazzy currents that might imply – and some cuts are 70s vintage, others are more contemporary. Titles include "Bird Of Beauty" by US Atlantic First Navy Show Band, "It's My Pleasure" by Billy Preston, "Love's In Need Of Love Today" by John Minnis Big Bone Band, "As" by Tony Sherman, "Buttercup" by Jackson 5, "Have A Talk With God" by East St Louis Gospelettes, "Betcha Wouldn't Hurt Me" by Quincy Jones, "Golden Lady" by Reel People with Tony Momrelle, "If You Don't Love Me" by GC Cameron, "If She Breaks Your Heart Again" by Foreign Exchange, "Don't You Worry Bout A Thing" by Black Sugar, "Go Home" by Jrod Indigo, and "Make My Water Boil" by David Ruffin.

✨✧ DadawahPeace & Love ... LP
Dug Out (UK), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Hypnotic, spiritually resonant music from Rastafarian singer & hand drummer Ras Michael's Dadawah – with these organic, echoey, atmospheric drums, bass and trippy bits of keyboards – providing a strong, spacious backdrop for the freedom-seeking lyricism! It's very unique stuff, grounded in the spiritual vibes and earthy instrumentation, and feeling akin to some of the freely ambitious soul jazz of the time in spirit, with the roomiest of reggae rhythms. Titles include "Run Come Rally", "Seventy-Two Nations", "Zion Land" and "Know How You Stand", all on the longer side, and ultra mesmerizing. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Roscoe Mitchell SextetSound ... LP
Delmark, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the first bold statements to come from Chicago's AACM underground of the 60s – a tremendous debut effort from the young Roscoe Mitchell! The album's got a "sense of the new" feel that's as gripping as anything recorded by ESP or Impulse around the same time – a rule-breaking, freely-creative approach to jazz that builds strongly off the changes already wrought by Cecil Taylor, Ornette Coleman, and Archie Shepp! The format is somewhat like the Art Ensemble Of Chicago at times – with measured horn work from Mitchell on alto, clarinet, and recorder, Maurice McIntyre on tenor, Lester Bowie on trumpet and flugelhorn, and Lester Lashley on trombone (as well as a bit of cello). Some tracks – like the brilliant "Sound" – offer a slow-building exploration of tones and textures – while others, like the blues-joke "Little Suite", or the harmelodic "Ornette", show a wry sense of humor that would become a Chicago avant hallmark as the years went on!

✨✧ Joe McPheeSolos – The Lost Tapes 1980/1981/1984 (with download) ... LP
Roaratorio, Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Really wonderful work from the great Joe McPhee – sublime solo performances from around the same time that he was really setting the world on fire with his classic albums for the Hat Hut label! Joe had been blowing freely for over a decade by the time of these tracks – but moving into a very open, very expressive solo mode is what really set him apart from his contemporaries – as you'll hear on the extremely inventive work on these title! McPhee plays tenor, alto, and soprano sax – sometimes with a bit of electronics – and the sense of expression here is as wonderful as on the Hat Hut albums – a bold new voice in jazz, as powerful now as it was when these tracks were recorded. Titles include "The Redwood Rag", "Wind Cycles", "Voices", and "Ice Blu". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Fille Qui MousseSe Taire Pour Une Femme Trop Belle (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Monster Melodies (France), 1971. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
One of the most far-out French groups we've ever heard – a freely jamming group who are in their very own space away from the typical prog or psych of the time! At some level, these guys are almost like an avant jazz group – given that there's no vocals at all on the record, and these guys jam pretty openly. Yet the instrumentation is also more rockish, too – lots of guitar, electric bass, and drums – although the instruments are often used in ways that are farther from melodic, making some ultra-cool sounds in some of the odder moments. The whole thing almost feels like some of the few rock outings from BYG/Actuel – and titles include "Resistance Instinctive", "Transplantation", "L'Eau Etait Vitage", "Cantate Disparate", and "Esplanade". LP, Vinyl record album
(Beautiful red marbled vinyl!)

✨✧ Moving Gelatine PlatesMoving Gelatine Plates (180 gram colored vinyl pressing – with bonus 7" single) ... LP
Monster Melodies (France), Mid 70s. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Unreleased material from the legendary Moving Gelatine Plates – one of the coolest French groups of the 70s, and one who freely skirted prog, avant jazz, and psych styles – all while holding very much to their own course of action! The sound here is very representative of that French way of thumbing their nose at all the rest of the other scenes going down on the continent at the time – neither needing commercial recognition, or even trying to fit into any sort of easy label or style – especially given the way that these guys still have an almost communal way of working together on some of the late 70s sides here, at a time when so many of their other European contemporaries were cleaning up their sound. All tracks are nice and long – and the cuts here are unedited recordings, appearing for the first time ever – titles that include "The World Of Genius Hans", "Astromonster", "London Cab", "Galantine", and "Like A Flower". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited numbered edition of 1000 copies – with bonus 7" single of the group's first 1970 recordings, and inserts too.)

AirAir Time (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Nessa, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 20.99
One of the best albums ever by this legendary Chicago trio – a great example of the way that records on the Nessa label can really get to the heart of artists' intentions! The trio of Henry Threadgill on reeds, Fred Hopkins on bass, and Steve McCall on percussion have never sounded better – and have this intimate, soulful interplay that's sometimes missing from other efforts – that special kind of energy that makes the AACM so great when it's really clicking this well – as deeply spiritual as it is freely expressive! Threadgill plays alto, tenor, bass flute, and the compelling hubkaphone –a nd titles include "I'll Be Right Here Waiting", "No 2", "GvE", "Subtraction", and "Keep Right On Playing Thru The Mirror Over The Water".

Hanni El KhatibSavage Times – The Complete Collection Vol 1-5 (3 X 10 inch – with download) ... LP
Innovative Leisure, 2017. New Copy 3 x 10 inch ... $35.99 39.99
A sprawling stunner from Hanni El Khatib – who doesn't leave behind the gritty, yet melodic garage rock and soul sounds he's done so well on an ALREADY diversely inspired career-to-date – it's just that he just does SO much more on Savage Times. We loved the raucous, tight blasts of timeless raw rock with soul he's made his name on so far, but Hanni has a lot more in his wheelhouse – from more angular, skronkier takes on the style, to more subtle and melodious tunes than he's ever done – his range is pretty incredible, but it's unmistakably his own. Impressive stuff! 19 in all: "Baby's OK", "Gonna Die Alone", "Born Brown", "Paralyzed", "Come Down", "No Way", "Black Constellation", "So Dusty", "Mangos & Rice", "Miracle", "Hole Me Back", "Till Your Rose Comes Home", "Savage Time" and more – plus 4 bonus songs: "1AM", "Peep Show", "This I Know" and "Freak Freely".

Drake and Future collabo with the former showing once again he's in for the long haul – working fast and freely creative on grittier edge with a hungry partner still on the ris e at this point! Pretty strong work from both parties here. Includes "Digital Dash", "Big Rings", "Live From The Gutter", "Diamonds Dancing", "Plastic Bag", "I'm The Plug", "Change Locations", "Jumpman", "Jersey" and "30 For 30 Freestyle".

Albert AylerProphecy ... LP
ESP, 1965. New Copy (reissue)... About June 2, 2017
Early work by Albert Ayler, recorded live in 1964 at the Cellar Cafe in New York, but not issued by ESP until years later, after his untimely early death. The performance is a trio outing – with Ayler's tenor alongside the bass of Gary Peacock and drums of Sunny Murray – all freely skirting around each other's space on the date, in a way that allows Ayler to take the bold lead with his sharp-toned solos, but which also allows for free interplay between the bass and percussion. Ayler's tone and wide swaths of sound are simply amazing – and titles include two variations on "Ghosts", plus "Spirits", "Prophecy", and "Wizard". LP, Vinyl record album

Nu BandFinal Concert ... LP
No Business (Lithuania), 2012. New Copy ... $22.99
One of the last performances of the mighty trumpeter Roy Campbell Jr – working here in the excellent Nu Band, which hosted some of the best moments of his late musical life! The group's got a spirited sense of energy that comes both from the drums of co-creator Lou Grassi, and the wonderfully deep bass work of Joe Fonda – who often has this pulse, or sometimes rolling quality, and gives the music a sort of beating heart, which allows both Roy and the alto of Mark Whitecage to really take off on some freely exploratory solos. Yet the group also comes together with a more structured approach at some of the best moments – really holding onto the great legacy of spiritual sounds that Campbell has given us – especially on the beautiful long track "Lament For Billy Bang", which is maybe worth the price of the record alone. Other titles include "Free Piece", "Like A Spring Day", and "In The Whitecage". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousAin't It Funky Now! – Flat Out Funk From The Jazz Brotherhood ... LP
BGP (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Jazzy 45s galore – and a huge dip into the vaults of Prestige Records! This tasty set brings together 18 classics recorded in the heyday of the jazz funk years at Prestige – the late 60s and early 70s, a time when the soul jazz sounds of previous years were being forged into a leaner, meaner, harder-hitting groove. And although the LP was the growing format during these days, there was actually a heck of a lot of great work issued on 45s – still spinning strong with the jukebox crowds in the clubs and tap rooms, and still getting major play on radio stations, where the single was still king. The set features many 45 mixes of funky classics that you might know from LPs – and intersperses them with some other more obscure numbers pulled from full albums – making for an all-solid, all-funky set of tracks from one of the hippest jazz labels ever! Titles include "Fire Eater" by Rusty Bryant, "Don't Knock My Love" by Idris Muhammad, "Jungle Strut" by Gene Ammons, "Express Yourself" by Idris Muhammad, "Right On" by Boogaloo Joe Jones, "Who's Gonna Take The Weight" by Melvin Sparks, "Sing A Simple Song" by Charles Earland, "Son Of Man" by Houston Person, "Listen Here (part 1)" by Freddie McCoy, "Black Talk (part 1)" by Charles Earland, "Message From The Meters" by Leon Spencer, "Reelin With The Feeling" by Charles Kynard, "I Want You Back" by Harold Mabern, and "Thank You (part 1)" by Melvin Sparks.

✨✧ Sante PalumboSway (with bonus CD) ... LP
CPT/Schema (Italy), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
An amazing set from the Italian scene of the early 70s – a jazz album with a fair bit of electric instrumentation, but one that comes across in a very different way than American or other European fusion of the time! Instead, there's kind of this core acoustic energy to the record – maybe from the righteous work on the kit, plus additional percussion, from Lino Liguori – who can hang back some moments, then step into a tune in a very explosive way – really giving focus to the keyboard work of leader Sante Palumbo, as he plays both acoustic and Fender Rhodes on the album. The record's also got some excellent alto, flute, and tenor from Hugo Heredia – an Argentine musician – plus great guitar from Sergio Farina, who can play freely one minute, and hit some wah-wah funk the next! There's a mix of outside jazz and funk throughout the record – in a way that's quite unusual, and which really keeps things on edge – and the whole thing feels like some of the most compelling records on the Dire label from the same period. Titles include "Sway", "Canon", "Bartokiana", "Sweeten", and "Mad". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Solidarity Unit, IncRed, Black & Green (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Charles Shaw/Eremite, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Landmark work from the St Louis scene – a pivotal album by Solidarity Unit – an offshoot of that city's groundbreaking Black Artists Group! The style here is very much in the mode of AACM work coming out of Chicago at the time – freely creative, and very exploratory – although often presented here with a sense of tightness and power that's even more impressive. Charles Bobo Shaw is the key musical vision here – having wrote, arranged, and produced the record – a bold vehicle for his own creative work on percussion, alongside other players who include Oliver Lake on flute and alto, Joseph Bowie on trombone, Danny Trice on congas, Richard Martin on guitar, and Baikida Yaseen (Carroll?) on trumpet. Tracks are all long, and quite free – and titles include "Beyond The New Horizon", "Floreo", and "Something To Play On". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited pressing of 600 copies – done with very heavy, high quality vinyl, in a very heavy cover!)
