African Head ChargeReturn Of The Crocodile – Unreleased Tracks & Version Excursions 1981 to 1986 (with download) ... LP
On-U Sound (UK), Early 80s. New Copy ... $18.99 19.99
Long-lost material from one of the coolest groups on the UK scene in the post-punk years – a wealth of unreleased tracks from the mighty African Head Charge – a group whose sound perfectly defined the legendary On-U Sound record label! The tunes are often quite spare and stripped-down – showcasing the core AHC sound of percussionist Bongo and studio wizard Adrian Sherwood – and his fantastic talent for creating analogue electronic madness alongside core organic, acoustic elements. Some of these tracks appeared in different versions on later albums, but these recordings are very raw and experimental – a real showcase for the On-U genius at its best! Titles include "More Bizarre", "Doctor Find", "Low Protein Snack", "Snake In The Goal", "Makola Market", and "Slippery Heel". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes bonus download!)

✨✧ VariousMicrocosm – Visionary Music of Continental Europe – 1970 to 1986 (3LP box set) ... LP
Light In The Attic, 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 3LP ... Out Of Stock
A completely revised look at the sounds that gave birth to the new age scene in the 80s – not the acoustic sounds of the Windham Hill generation, but the amazing array of spare, minimal, often electronic modes that were bubbling up on the European scene in the 70s! The package pulls together sounds from a disparate set of genres – bits of prog, electronic, minimalist, and other musics – often without any vocals in the mix, and usually moving in slow, spacey styles – working together here to paint a pre-new age picture that's wonderfully free of any of the cliches that later held back the music. The whole thing's a companion to the I Am The Center box set on Light In The Attic – and titles include "Cometary Wailing" by Bernard Xolotl, "Orguitar Soir" by Ariel Kalma, "Creation Du Monde" by Vangelis, "Untitled" by Francesco Messina, "Wenn Der Sudwind Weht" by Roedelius, "Dance For A Warrior" by Robert Julian Horky, "Caravan" by Karl Schaffner & Lother Grimm, "Morning Glory" by Enno Velthuys, "Spirales" by Deuter, "Shiva's Dance" by Suzanne Doucet & Christian Buehner, "Ship Beetel" by Gigi Masin, and "Le Sourire Vole" by Ash Ra Tempel. LP, Vinyl record album
(Beautiful heavy box set – 3LPs, big liner notes, and heavy inner jackets!)

African Head ChargeMy Life In A Hole In The Ground (with download) ... LP
On-U Sound (UK), 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 19.98
Seminal sounds from the On-U Sound label – and a record that perhaps provides one of the most lasting illustration of the label's genius! African Head Charge work in this unique blend of Jamaican dub, British post-punk electronics, and some earthier textures that might be more at home in Brian Eno's "fourth world" series – a masterful blend handled by producer Adrian Sherwood, who's still at the height of his power here – and works with percussion from Bonjo I, melodica from Doctor Pablo, saxes from Deadly Headly, and some nice echoey drums from Mus'come and AV Scott. Lizard provides the heavy bass – and cuts include "Elastic Dance", "Stone Charge", "Hole in the Roof", and "Crocodile Shoes". LP, Vinyl record album

Echo & The BunnymenIt's All Live Now (180 gram pressing – limited & numbered) ... LP
Rhino/Run Out Groove, Mid 80s. New Copy ... $25.99 29.99
A fantastic side of Echo & The Bunnymen at the height of their powers – and material with a rawer edge than most of their studio work too! The sound here is mostly nice and stark – more post-punk than polished, because of the live setting – and a surprisingly great reminder of the way that Will Sergeants's stark, sharp guitar was as much a part of the group's sound as the vocals of Ian McCulloch! The record is full of surprises – and is maybe worth it alone for the group's fantastic remake of "She Cracked", an early tune by Jonathan Richman from the days when he was a pre-punk genius. Other tracks include versions of the Velvet Underground tracks "Heroin" and "Run Run Run", Tom Verlaine's "Friction", Bob Dylan's "It's All Over Now Baby Blue" and the Doors' "Soul Kitchen" – plus the originals "Crocodiles" and "Do It Clean". LP, Vinyl record album
(Individually numbered Run Out Groove pressing – a small number based on pre-release demand – quantities extremely limited!)

✨✧ LesimanHere & Now – Vol 2 (with bonus CD) ... LP
Schema (Italy), 1974. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Stunning work from Lesiman – easily one of the coolest, funkiest talents on the Italian sound library scene of the 70s! The groove here is electric, funky, and often slightly trippy – with perfect use of electric bass to get things going in so many different ways, depending on the mood of the track – as things step slowly underneath cascading piano lines, or move fast under these fuzzier keyboard bits, or act nice and skittish when the drums take on more power in the mix! There's often a nice degree of echo in the recordings – used to abstract familiar instruments, but never steer them of course too much – just create these amazing sounds that still leave us breathless after all these years. Both volumes of the set are amazing – and titles on volume 2 include "Plycar", "Permanenza", "Controcorrente", "Radura", "Stabilita", "Messaggio", "Confronto", "Ripresa", "Ciclo Interrotto", and "Cristalli". LP, Vinyl record album
( LP comes with bonus CD version of the full album.)
