✨✧ James DayRepertoire ... CD
James Day Songs, 2016. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The repertoire here is as great as the lineup – positive, upbeat soul songs all written by James Day – and performed with help from a huge cast of talent from the contemporary and classic soul underground – including Maysa, U-Nam, Glenn Jones, Trina Broussard, U-Nam, Donnie, Audrey Wheeler, Tony Terry, Cool Million, Gavin Christopher, and others! Some of these are folks we haven't heard in years – and certainly not in a setting this great – as Day works with U-Nam, who co-produced the set, in a mode that's got the same warm mix of classic and contemporary that you'd find in the best music by Incognito! Titles include "Considered Delivered", "We Dance", "Don't Waste The Pretty", "Dance Again", "Repertoire", "Rewind", and "RSVP". CD

Merry ClaytonMerry Clayton ... CD
Ode/Repertoire, 1971. New Copy ... $13.99 19.99
Righteous and rocking soul from Merry Clayton! The set was done in LA with arrangements by insiders that include Jerry Peters, Carole King, and Billy Preston – and features some tight and sometimes funky backing from players that include David T Walker, Wilton Felder, Paul Humphrey, and Curtis Amy. Some of the tunes are a bit too rock-soul for our taste, but there are a few tasty bits on here that we really like – including a hip Leon Ware tune called "Whatever", a nice cover of Bill Withers' "Grandma's Hands", and Jerry Peters "Love Me Or Let Me Be Lonely". Other tracks include "Southern Man", "Same Old Story", "Walk On In", and "A Song For You". CD

Giorgio MoroderE = MC2 ... CD
Casablanca/Repertoire (Germany), 1979. Used ... $9.99
Classic dancefloor electronics from Giorgio Moroder – and the "first electronic live to digital album", which must have cost a bundle to make! Giorgio is in prime electro disco mode here – spinning out long lines of catchy synthesizer tunes – in a way that takes Kraftwerk aesthetic and turns it towards the dancefloor, and also tops it off with some nice pop-styled vocals too! According to the notes, Giorgio's working with "music programmed as bursts of energy" – but to us, it's just plain groovy disco! Tracks are long, and titles include "I Wanna Rock You", "Baby Blue", "What A Night", "If You Weren't Afraid", and "In My Wildest Dreams". CD features 2 bonus tracks – "Love's In You Love's In Me" and "Evolution". CD
Also available E = MC2 ... LP 16.99

✨✧ Percy FaithChinatown/Love Theme From Romeo & Juliet ... CD
Columbia/Vocalion (UK), 1969/1974. New Copy ... $16.99
Two lesser-known instrumental albums from Percy Faith – issued here back to back on a single CD! Chinatown is from 1974 – and features a slight 70s twist on the Faith style of the 60s – maybe a subtle dose of the big band modes that Maynard Ferguson was using on a few of the tunes that get slightly groovy – mixed with more of that compressed string style on the mellower numbers – creating a balance that makes the album a bit more interesting than you might expect! A few of these tracks almost head towards funky big band modes, and the choice of repertoire is pretty great – with an excellent version of the "Chinatown" theme by Jerry Goldsmith – plus "Tubular Bells", "Moody", "Midnight At The Oasis", "I'm Gonna Go Fishin", and "Deep In The Morning". Love Theme From Romeo & Juliet is a late 60s charmer from Percy Faith – a record that begins with a remake of his classic hit "A Summer Place", then steps into a mix of cuts that include some surprisingly groovy choices! Faith really surprises us here with his swinging takes on some tunes – music that goes way past his buttoned-up style of a decade before – on tracks that include "Spinning Wheel", "Aquarius", "April Fools", "Hello Tomorrow", "Good Morning Starshine", "One", and a sweet take on Nilsson's "Without Her".

(Hybrid Super Audio CD pressing – works on standard CD players too!)

Macklay/Reminick/Haydn/Fisher-LochheadSerious Business – Spektral Quartet (CD/blu-ray) ... CD
Sono Luminus, 2016. New Copy 2CDs ... $9.99 24.99
A wonderful record from this important string quartet – a group who strike a fine balance between being playful and playing powerfully, and who have a really tremendous ear for unusual repertoire too! The cover and title might seem a bit gimmicky, but Spektral Quartet are far from that – as they really grab us right away with their unusual sense of string textures, and the greater sonic possibilities of the quartet – working here on some material commissioned especially for the group, and other compositions that they really transform in their performance. The set begins with the captivating "Many Many Cadences" – a piece that's exactly as the title describes – then moves into the "Ancestral Mousetrap", a suite of tracks that also features some text from Russell Edson performed by the group as they play. The album then makes an abrupt shift to Haydn's "String Quartet Op 33 No 2 – The Joke" – which is handled by the group with a style that's faithful to the writing, but also very individual as well – especially as it's followed by "Hack" – a long suite of very short tracks, which follows the "joke" thematically, as each section is titled after a comedian – "Sarah Silverman", "Lenny Bruce", "Dick Gregory", and so on – but all with individual performances that extrapolate the ideas of those performers through a modern string quartet interpretation.

VariousGidon Kremer – Complete Recordings On Deutsche Grammophon (22CD set) ... CD
Deutsche Grammophon (Germany), 1970s/1980s. New Copy 22CD ... $86.99 99.99
Violinist Gidon Kremer is a musician whose solo and small group work has been crucial in transforming the face of classical performance in the past few decades – but he's also an equally stunning artist in a concerto setting, as you'll hear on this fantastic collection of his recordings for the Deutsche Grammophon and Philips label! Kremer's violin always has a bit of an edge – modern even in a familiar setting, and open to new phrasings and sounds that only seem to get richer, and bolder in front of an orchestra. And his ear for repertoire is equally thrilling – as the set not only features works by older giants like Bach, Beethoven, and Schubert – but also a huge range of material from modern and later composers – including Shnittke, Glass, Milhaud, Chausson, Vieuxtemps, Part, Lurie, and others – a range of compositions that make this set one of the most wide-ranging in styles of any collections we've seen like this. Conductors include Pierre Boulez, Leonard Bernstein, Claudio Abbado, Colin Davis, Riccardo Muti, Lorin Maazel, and even Kremer himself – and as with other packages from Deutsche Grammophon, this 22CD set features mini LP-styled replicas of all the original albums – complete with original album artwork, and additional notes in a booklet.

✨✧ VariousGolden Era Of Living Stereo – The Remastered Collector's Edition (60CD set) ... CD
RCA/Sony, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 60CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A classical record dream come true – a massive 60CD set that presents newly-remastered versions of famous albums from the RCA Living Stereo series – including 48 albums that appear here on CD for the first time ever! There have been other Living Stereo collections, but this one really blows the others away – not just because of the new mastering, but also because the depth of records included really gets at the full range of the series, and way past more familiar hits. If you're not familiar with RCA's work at the time, the Living Stereo series set a whole new standard for classical music – not just because of a superb talent roster and choice of material, but also because of the impeccable new studio standards, which captured the music far better than before. Only Mercury's Living Presence series was maybe close – but that line of recordings was sometimes more gimmicky, while RCA's classical releases avoided that temptation – and presented masterful performances in a manner that was understated, but mindblowing at the same time. The repertoire here is heavy on composers from the classical and romantic years, but does include a few modern moments and early music pieces too – and the 60CD set features every single album in a tiny LP-styled sleeve with original artwork, plus a hardcover book with full discographical notes, contents, and more writings on the music!

✨✧ Joe CubaSteppin' Out ... LP
Seeco, Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Seminal early work from the legendary Joe Cuba – highly percussive Latin tracks, served up in a small combo mode that really helped pave the way for the Latin Soul generation! Joe's shaking off most of Latin tradition here – going for a tightly focused sound that features plenty of timbales and congas, and which also introduces a bit of English language to their repertoire – thanks to vocals by Jimmy Sabater on the track "To Be With You". Cheo Feliciano sings on a few other numbers, but a number of tracks are really cooking instrumentals! Titles include the great "Wabble Cha", plus "Oriente", "Callejero", "Salsa Y Bembe", "Cachondea", and "To Be With You", a big early hit for the group. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousClaudio Arrau – Complete RCA & Columbia Album Collection (12CD set) ... CD
Sony, 1940s/Early 50s. New Copy 12CD ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic collection of work from one of the most important pianists of the 40s – a beautiful package that puts the music in wonderfully historical context, while also updating the sound and presentation! As with others in this series, the box features original album sleeves to replicate the album release of the material – but, since a good number of Arrau's RCA sessions were originally done in the pre-LP years, as 78rpm discs – they're brought together here on special collections that create albums out of that material, then moves into representations of Claudio Arrau's important full length albums for Columbia – plus a later RCA presentation of his 1942 recording of Bach's Goldberg Variations. The repertoire is relatively familiar – material by Liszt, Beethoven, Chopin, Debussy, and Albeniz – but the majesty of Arrau's performances completely opens them up. Features full notes in a bonus booklet – and 10 of the 12 CDs have been remastered for this package! CD
