Roni Size/ReprazentNew Forms (4CD set) ... CD
Talkin' Loud/Universal (UK), 1997. New Copy 4CD ... $54.99 69.99
An insane moment of vision from the British scene of the 90s – one of the key points when all the scattered energy of the scene's clubs and singles was brought to bear on a full-length records – with results that are still tremendous all these many years later! The album definitely lives up to its title – as it finds a way to take all the more jagged edges of British rhythms, and find a way to work them all together in a sound that really soars to the skies – maybe not with the spiritual currents of 4Hero, but definitely pushing towards a similar space in the cosmos. The noisier currents of the Bristol scene find great direction here in the Talking Loud environment – moving past the dominant jump up sound – with jazzy, soulful production that's really kept this one a classic. Titles include "Brown Paper Bag", "New Forms", "Railing", "Watching Windows", "Lets Get It On", "Share The Fall (full vocal mix)", "Matter Of Fact", "Morse Code", "Beatbox", "Change My Life", "Jazz", and "Destination". This 4CD package is amazing – with all the tracks that were on the original 2CD version of the album, plus bonus tracks like "Sounds Fresh", "Western", and "Elektricks" – and remix cuts that include "Heroes (origin unknown rmx)", "Watching Windows (DJ Die gnarly voc mix)", "Brown Paper Bag (Roni Size full voc mix)", "Down (Bel Air rmx)", "Heroes (Kruder's long loose bossa)", "Share The Fall (Groovriders jeep style mix)", "New Forms (Krust's wide screen version)", "Brown Paper Bag (Photek rmx)", and "Watching Windows (Roni Size meets Nuyorican Soul)". Also features a whol bonus disc of a Live Hardware Set – a 20th Anniversary batch of 18 more remixes and edits! 53 tracks in all, in a very cool book-style package with lots of notes – all remastered!

✨✧ Toshio Matsuura GroupLove Play Dance ... CD
Universal (Japan), 2018. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Quite a compelling little record – a jazz album at heart, but one that also opens up into lots of different sonic territory – as you might expect from a collection of tunes that includes tracks by Rotary Connection, Roni Size, Flying Lotus, Kruder & Dorfmeister, and Bugge Wessletoft! The approach here might be somewhat in the territory of that last artistic reference – as the music is opened up and sometimes a bit diffuse – so that the core elements are melded together in the hands of director Toshio Matsuura, then pushed off in a whole new direction! Things start out very spacey – with keyboards, trumpet, and other elements drifting in moody space – but the album really picks up speed once it gets going, and comes across with some fantastic spiritual groovers – including great covers of "I Am The Black Gold Of The Sun" and "Kitty Bey" – plus "Brown Paper Bag", "High Noon", "Do The Astral Plane", "At Les", and "Change".

✨✧ Eastern RebellionSimple Pleasure ... CD
Music Masters, 1992. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wonderful title for this album of understated brilliance – a strong early 90s offering from Walton's Eastern Rebellion group, done in a mode that's very similar to their initial Timeless recordings of the 70s! The quartet this time around features Walton's piano alongside the drums of co-founder Billy Higgins – plus bass by David Williams, and tenor by Ralph Moore, fresh off of some excellent work as a leader for the Landmark label in the late 80s. The tracks are all long and inventive – soulbop at its best, with titles that include "Roni's Decision", "In The Kitchen", "Dear Ruth", "Simple Pleasure", and "Sixth Avenue". CD

Alessandro AlessandroniLa Terrificante Notte Del Demonio ... CD
GDM/Octave (Japan), 1971. Used ... $24.99
Demonic sounds, but surprisingly sweet as well – done with this easy-flowing style that's really wonderful – and much more similar to the seductive sound library work of Alessandro Alessandroni, than to some of the starker, darker horror of the time! There's definitely some spooky passages, but they're almost always warmed up in really nice ways – both with keyboards, and with these wordless vocals from the lovely Giulia De Mutiis, who drifts through the record like some sexy ghost. Her vocals almost give the whole thing a more dream-like feel at times – not too atmospheric, but with clouds of sweet sounds that blow through the space in a wonderful way. CD features 14 tracks in all – including "Demon Night II", "Demon Arise", "Dark Dreamer", "Devil's Nightmare", and "Erotic Demon". CD

Alessandro AlessandroniLost & Found – Unreleased Soundtracks & Library Treastures From An Italian Maestro 1972 to 1978 (180 gram pressing – with bonus CD) ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $34.99
A stunning lost chapter in the career of Alessandro Alessandroni – one of our favorite soundtrack artists of all time! Alessandroni wrote almost as much music for sound libraries as he did for films – and as with the tracks on the set, some of his best nuggets have been lost to the mainstream for decades – lurking in the vaults, and ready to spring forth and maybe even topple some of his better-known work! That's definitely the case with these cuts, which really shed light on a funky stretch of Alessandroni's career in the 70s – a moment when he was still working with all the warm bossa and jazz charms of his previous efforts, but also stepping out with these sharper, funkier styles too – sometimes even with a stronger vocal lead than normal. About a third of these tracks feature lyrics – sung by Lorena, Giullia De Mutiis, and by I Cantori Moderni – and although the tracks are from different sessions, they really work well together – thanks to the collection talents of the folks at Four Flies. Titles include "Underground Disco", "Sea Breeze", "Shot Undercover", "Flirt No 2", "Night Fly", "Soul Meeting", "After Crime", "Sweet Emotions", "Obstinate Pop", and "Synthetic Rendezvous".

✨✧ Alessandro AlessandroniRomance & Drama ... LP
Coloursound Library/Transversales Disques (France), Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
A really unusual sound library session from Alessandro Alessandroni – quite different both from his regular work, and from what you might expect from the title! There's maybe more drama than romance here, but still in a very subtle way – as the tunes have this kind of descending, almost stepping structure – usually using a bit of guitar alongside strings, but with other compressed sounds that are almost impossible to figure out, yet create these beautiful painterly shapes in space! The music almost feels more like Sven Libaek at times, although has that warm quality that we've always loved in Alessandroni's soundtracks – and titles include "A Long Day", "First Approaches", "Dramatic Encounter", "Sad Farewell", "Epic", "Agitation", "Noble Feelings", "Love Letters", and "A Simple Souvenir".

A beautiful little record, and one that's got way more heart and soul to offer than you might expect from the rather understated packaging – which hides an album that's full of sparkling 70s keyboard magic! The music here is by a mix of Italian soundtrack and jazz talents – the latter of whom bring some sounds that are especially groovy, served up on both acoustic piano and lots of sweet electric keyboards! The great Marco Di Marco contributes four numbers – including two takes on "Long Drink", "Prima Giochi", and the tune "Ivana" – a nice bossa nova track. Other titles include "Aria Aperta" by Franco Tonani, "Venus" and "Bassa Marea" by Alessandro Alessancroni, "Pescatori" by Kema, and "Protozoi" by Amedeo Tommasi. LP, Vinyl record album

Jorge AntunesMusica Eletronica (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Mental Experience (Spain), 1960s. New Copy ... $13.99
Some of the most important electro-acoustic music to come from the Brazilian scene in the 60s – recordings that are every bit as powerful as similar experiments from Europe at the time, particularly the revolutionary talents working in Paris! Jorge Antunes takes a big page from their book, and works with lots of electronic wave patterns, tape loops, and other effects – to create these sounds that often begin in more familiar postwar patterns from the academic world, but often move into much noisier territory – really pointing the way forward for the European underground of the post-punk generation. Works include "Valsa Sideral", "Contrapunctus Contra Contrapunctus", "Auto Retrato Sobre Paisaje Porteno", "Cinta Cita", and "Historia De Una Pueblo Por Nacer". LP, Vinyl record album

Braen & Raskovich (Alessandro Alessandroni/GiulianDrammatico (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Panda/Sonor (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
They're not kidding with the title of this one – as the album leaps off to a very dramatic style, right from the start – with a surprisingly noisy sound titled after the incubation of the heavens! That noise moves aside a bit as the album moves on, but the whole thing still stays very strongly in the fuzzy, freaky territory you might know from other Italian rarities issued under the name of Braen and Raskovich – which were both studio pseudonyms for Alessandro Alessandroni and Giuliano Sorgini! Yet despite the fame of both of those artists in other settings, they're very much in a different space here – not just psych-inspired sound library modes, but also pre-industrial sounds too – of a style that seems to hint at the darker depths of the British underground in the post-punk years. At times, if we told you the album was a project by Throbbing Gristle, you wouldn't be surprised – and like TG, there's some surprisingly tuneful points amidst the noisier moments. Titles include "Dispersi", "Accerchiamento", "Linea Di Resistenza", "Insidia", "Ultimo Istante", and "Avanzata". LP, Vinyl record album

Tim BuckleySefronia ... LP
DiscReet, 1973. Near Mint- ... $16.99
A great later album from Tim Buckley – one that really shows him evolving his style in the last few years before his tragic early departure from this planet! Tim's working in a style here that's oddly heavier and with more bluesy overtones than some of his classic 60s albums for Elektra – almost reaching for a stronger style that competes with other singer-songwriters who were beating his action at the time! We're not saying that the album's slick or overly commercial – just recorded with a fuller sound, and less of the light jazz-tinged folk styles used in earlier years. A few of the tunes are done in the older Buckley mode, but others have strings, backing vocals, and other larger arrangements. Titles include "Quicksand", "I Know I'd Recognize Your Face", "Martha", "Peanut Man", "Dolphins", "Honey Man", "Because Of You", and "Sefronia – The King's Chain". LP, Vinyl record album

John Cage/Tania ChenElectronic Music For Piano ... CD
Omnivore, 2018. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
A completely amazing presentation of this very unusual piece by John Cage – one that plays with chance actions and sound even more than the original composition! The format is very unusual – producer Gino Robair (who's almost part of the performance himself) recorded pianist Tania Chen in three different duet versions of the work – one with Thurston Moore on guitar, one with Jon Leidecker on mobiles and mixer, and one with David Toop on a variety of electronic elements and feedback! Then, Robair layered all three duets together at once, and had the record move between them with chance action – almost like you're flipping the switch back and forth between three channels on a mixing board, but at a much more random level. The end result moves between noise and silence, fuzz and clarity, electricity and earthiness – all in the space of a 69 minute performance. CD

Prestige, Mid 50s. Used 8 CDs ... $32.99
Wow! An incredible collection of seminal recordings from one of the most important figures in modern music! All of Miles' recordings from the Prestige label in one place, bound up in a well annotated box, and given a complete discography and lots of excellent photos. It's almost too much astounding jazz in one place! The list of sidemen and great LPs is almost too long to go over, but in addition to Miles' remarkable Cookin'/Relaxin'/Walkin'/Workin' sessions, there's all of the material issued as Bags' Groove, with the Modern Jazz Giants and loads more, and some of the stellar accompanists includes John Coltrane, Sonny Rollins, Charlie Parker, Lee Konitz, Red Garland, Thelonious Monk, Horace Silver, Milt Jackson, Paul Chambers, Art Blakey, Philly Joe Jones, and Max Roach, just to name a few. There's far too many tracks to list here, but there's takes of "Blue Room", "Conception", "Compulsion", "Miles Ahead", "Blue Haze", "Airegin", "Bag's Groove", "The Man I Love", "Green Haze", "Dr Jackle", "The Theme", "Trane's Blues", "'Round About Midnight", "Half Nelson", "My Funny Valentine" and loads more!

Amazing stuff! This one was recorded by The Elektrosoniks – a team made up of composer Tom Dissevelt and Kit Baltan – and it's got lots of weird wild harsh electronics (if you know Dissevelt's other albums, you'll know what we mean!) The whole thing sounds sort of like a mad robot playing a crazy space organ on a merry go round while dropping acid – and that description only gets at half the record! It's a great one if you like spooky 60's electronics – and titles include "Moon Maid", "Sonik Re-entry", "Twilight Ozone", "Orbit Aurora", and "The Ray Makers". Very cool!

A stellar compilation of 80s material from German electronic experimentalist new wavers EMAK – Elektronische Musik Aus Koln – a Cologne combo that built upon the influences of Krautrock and experimental innovators such as Cluster, Tangerine Dream and other giants – with touches of cosmic European disco and minimalist Brit new wave from the proto synth, post punk era – all to create a pretty amazing sound of their own! This work is maybe less experimental than you might think, as some of the cuts have a great little groove – and even got a bit of club notoriety at the time – while others are maybe a bit darker and into cold wave territory. The group originally issued these three albums by themselves – and this beautiful box set is the first time the whole range of music has been reissued. All 3 albums have been completely remastered from the original tapes – and are presented here in a limited box set pressing! LP, Vinyl record album

Remi Gassman and Oskar Sala each present pieces of modern electronic music in this hard to find LP for Westminster, very much in the style that was in vogue in New York in the 50s and early 60s. Gassman performs his "Electronic Music For the Ballet Electronics", which has a spare spooky sound, and Sala gives us "Five Improvisations On Magnetic Tape" – which are a bunch of short electronic tracks with a fragile, yet noisy feel to them. As the back of the record says "If anyone cares, this record has a dynamic range of 51 dB. Its lowest frequency is 15.4 cycles per second, its highest fundamental 3951 cps, the highest harmonis or overtone 15806 cps. It can blow out speakers, traumatize cats and arouse the landlord."

Takayuki HamadaChronique Michel Legrand – De Ses Debuts A Aujourd'hui ... Book
Rittor (Japan), 2017. New Copy ... $32.99
A beautiful book on the decades of recorded output from one of our favorite composers ever – the legendary Michel Legrand – an artist known to most folks for his famous soundtracks of the 60s and 70s – but also a jazz musician, singer, and even a very groovy instrumental arranger! All those many aspects of Legrand's music are brought together here wonderfully – in a rich discography that's done in a similar style to some of the Japanese jazz discographies in our racks – but with maybe even a wider-ranging approach, given that Legrand's records were issued in so many countries over so many years! The style here is familiar if you know those other discographies – each record gets a listing with a reproduction of the cover in color, plus release date, label, catalog number, and even songs and other details. The book also features short reviews of many of the records, and longer text on Legrand – all of which is in Japanese – but the volume also balances things out beautifully for non-Japanese readers, with lots of photos and other beautiful images. The soundtrack section is especially great, as it also includes lots of rare singles and EP releases – and the book also features chapters on Legrand's jazz work, his vocal releases, live records, collaborations, musicals, and arrangements for a huge amount of singers. There's even a special sleeve gallery at the back, with lots more rare album covers in full color – and even a listing of all his scores for films. A beautiful book if you love Michel Legrand as much as we do – 255 pages, with loads of beautiful full color images! Book

A record that took the world by quiet storm in the 70s – quite revolutionary at the time, but put forth with a subtle force that would take years to build in influence! The album was the first album from electronic wizard Richard Pinhas, and was self-released at the time – yet it features a complex performance of electronic modes, often with Pinhas soloing on guitar next to an EMS Synthi AKS – but all at a level that's quite open, fluid, and extremely evocative! Pinhas was a huge fan of Robert Fripp at the time, and you can definitely hear that influence at work – but in a way that's maybe different than Fripp's earlier music, and which only hints at directions he'd take later in some of his solo material. One track even features the legendary Gilles Deleuze making a guest appearance – Pinhas was a budding philosopher himself – and titles include "Zind", "Back To Heldon", "Northernland Lady", "Ouais Marchais Mieux Qu'En 68", "Circulus Vitiosus", and "Ballade Puig Antich".

A pastiche of of styles from the late 70s and early 80s Kollywood cinema scene – amazing stuff produced and arranged by Ilaiyaraaja – music that trades as much in heavy funk as it does electronic pop! Over the span of a few decades, maestro Ilaiyaraaja recorded hundreds of scores, many under different names (or differently spelled names) in Tamil, Hindi, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada – Southern Indian music as relentlessly danceable as boundlessly groovy as we could have imagined. We also can't imagine how arduous the task must have been for compilers Doug Shipton and Pavel Chehunov to go through such a vast catalog to put together this essential compilation, which just makes it all the more amazing!

Vintage Vibez, Late 80s/1990s/2000s. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $19.99 21.98
A killer compilation of rare Dilla instrumentals that hones in on his electronic-influenced side! It's the first time his archives have been mined with this sharp of a focus – but Dilla being the diverse cat that he was, it's STILL got a incredible stylistic sprawl! The beats are head nodding, soul steeped and insistent as can be, and that keeps it grounded in mesmerising, unpretentious hip hop throughout – but with lots of room for spacey synth atmosphere, spare bits of cosmic keys, bouncing electro funk accents and other touches. A nice exploration of rare instrumentals from his archives as we've seen in a single set – 41 untitled tracks running about 70 minutes all together, and it STILL leaves us wanting more. Compiled by Detroit DJs Alien Villainz, for Ma Dukes and the Dilla estate. LP, Vinyl record album

Pony Canyon (Japan), 2018. New Copy ... $22.99
The first music we've heard in quite awhile from Jazztronik – and a set that has them sounding even more funk-oriented than before! We've always loved the creations of leader Ryota Nozaki – even his mellower moments – but this time around, he really steps into new territory by working with a larger group that's heavy on horns, and which has some especially strong bass and drums – all to create a vibe that's more 70s funk than you might expect! But there's also some richer, more sophisticated currents too – that strong sense of arrangement that Nozaki has really developed over the years, worked out here in live horn charts that can be extremely beautiful. Some tracks feature soul-styled vocals by singers Eliana and Aisha, and some are instrumental – and tracks include "Dolphin Smile", "Spotlight", "Caprice", "Sanctuary", "Deja Vu", and "Meguru (2017 version)".

One of the most compelling entries so far in the all-great Congotronics series – a set of highly percussive work from this unique ensemble! The Kasai All Stars is a collective of members from six other groups – all working here in Konono-like territory that's heavy on distorted rhythms from electrified thumb piano and xylophones, then topped with some great guitar lines that link the music to older African traditions – all with a sound that's completely hypnotic and downright other-worldly! There's vocals on most of the tracks, but the real appeal of the record is the instrumentation, which is totally great – a mindblowing blend of sounds that shows that there's still plenty of key musical changes taking place in the African scene. Titles include "Quick As White", "Mukuba", "Beyond The 7th Moon", "Analengo", "Mpombo Yetu", "Mbu A Matumba", and "Drowning Goat". CD

Konono's been making this music for the past 25 years – working in the suburbs of Kinshasa as a collective of musicians experimenting with the relation of sound and rhythm – using a fair bit of distortion to push the boundaries of their style. There's a unique relationship here between traditional African rhythms and newer electronic music – almost a primitive electronica, if you will – but with a style that goes way beyond such a facile tag. Titles include "Paradiso", "Mama Liza", "Kule Kule", "Lufuala Ndonga", and "Masikulu". CD

Dado Moroni/Eddie Gomez/Joe LaBarberaKind Of Bill – Live At Casino Di San Remo ... CD
BFM Jazz, 2017. Used ... $8.99
The album's maybe more than just "kind of Bill" – Bill Evans, that is – as pianist Dado Moroni plays here with old Evans trio members Eddie Gomez on bass and Joe LaBarbera on drums! Both Gomez and LaBarbera alone would be a delight – and neither have lost the genius of their younger years with Evans – but Dado's piano really brings the whole thing together, and has this pointed, sparkling tone that's nicely different from older Bill Evans modes – but still respects his sense of space and timing. Titles include some key numbers from the older Evans songbook, plus originals by all three trio members – with tracks that include "Forever", "Two Lonely People", "Kind Of Bill", "Funkallero", "Solar", "First Smile", and "My Foolish Heart".

New World Electronic Chamber EnsembleSwitched On Beatles ... LP
Island, Early 70s. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $11.99
Some very groovy and fairly ambitious moog takes of Beatles tracks, using moog, arp, and other cool electronic instrumentation. The lineup's mostly late Beatles stuff with a trippy feel, like "Your Mother Should Know", "Strawberry Fields", and "Penny Lane", and many of the tracks are taken in versions that mix them with other ones. The band's kind of young and hip, and the sound is better than the usual moog rock LP. Excellent Peter Max-ish gatefold with inner pictures of the band. One guy is wearing a studded denim jacket over a Speedy Gonzalez tee-shirt AND he is wearing a brass MOOG belt buckle. These guys were the real McCoy! LP, Vinyl record album

107-34-8933 (aka Nik Pascal)Numbers – Electronic Music From Art In Space ... LP
Narco/Wah Wah (Spain), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
Beautifully trippy electronics from Nik Raicevic/Nik Pascal – as you might expect from a record whose songs include "Cannabis Sativa", "Methedrine", and "Lysergic Acid Diethylamide"! Those three songs are all that the album contains, but they're all nice and long – and each features freewheeling electronics that spin out beautifully in space! Raicevic plays moog throughout – working here under the name of 107-34-8933, at a level that's maybe even more stretched out and expansive than his other work. We can't say if the titles actually work with the substances that they're naming – but given that the original record came with a sticker that said "do not listen to this album if you are stoned" – we're guessing that Nik didn't want folks to experiment!

Tapecar/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... About June 6, 2018
Sweet funk from 70s Brazil – a totally great album from drummer Ronnie – aka Ronald Mesquita, the percussive force behind the Bossa Tres combo! This album's got a smoother groove than their records – great use of Fender Rhodes, gliding alongside sweet samba soul arrangements – in a mode that's a bit like some of the funkier 70s work by Joao Donato, with touches of some of the grooves that artists like Jorge Ben or Gilberto Gil were hitting at the time. Yet there might be a stronger fusion element at the core here – as the group also features Ze Carlos on tenor and flute, who shades things in nicely – and makes room for vocals from Loalwa and Jayyme Rocha. The album was issued by the Tapecar label around the same time as their classic release by Ana Mazzotti – and has a similar mix of fusion and Brazilian grooves! Titles include "Remelexo", "Atoa Atoa", "Esse Mare", "Visgo De Jaca", "Falsa Baiana", and "Albatroz". CD

Raymond ScottThree Willow Park – Electronic Music From Inner Space 1961 to 1971 (2CDs/book) ... CD
Basta (Netherlands), 1960s. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 21.98
An amazing lost trove of work by electronic music Raymond Scott – sounds that were never issued commercially, and which may well represent the last corner of his genius yet to be explored! The music here was all created in Scott's home studio on Long Island – and is a fantastic blend of playful modes and more exploratory sounds – very much in the spirit of Bruce Haack or Perry & Kingsley at the time, and maybe a bit like the electronic work of Piero Umiliani – but with a weirder, wilder vibe overall! There's definitely a few noisy moments – ala Soothing Sounds For Baby – but many of the tracks are short experiments, and also include some jingles or commercial music too – which makes for a fantastically large array of analogue elements throughout. The package also features detailed notes, and a look at this obscure chapter of Scott's career – a time when he was maybe at his most experimental, with amazing results. Titles include "Ohio Bell Mystery", "Idea 35", "Nice Sound 3", "Cindy Alternate", "The Toy Trumpet (demo 1)", "Rhythm Sample", "Tone Stepper", "Super Cheer", "Baltimore Gas & Electric Test", "Nice Set Up 7", "Cyclic Bit 3", "Sparrows (part 1)", "Ripples (fugue)", and "Auto Lite Wheels (effects)".

Sub Rosa (Belgium), Late 70s/1980s/Early 90s. New Copy 2CD ... $11.99
Electronic music from a very far-flung source – served up here in a set of vintage recordings by one of the leading experimentalists in Indonesia at the end of the 70s – an artist with a sound that's nicely different than preceding decades of American and European electronic pioneers! Part of the quality of the music comes from the devices used – which are sometimes more modern than those from the earliest analogue years – but other elements in the music stand out from a purely compositional perspective – especially Otto Sidharta's use of space in his earliest work, and his sense of nature and the planet – which gives some of these pieces an organic vibe. Overall, the music is mostly on the more tuneful side of the spectrum – if not directly melodic – and titles include "Nature", "Gamelan", "Saluang", and "Ngendau". CD

Edgar VareseMusic Of Edgar Varese – Ionisation/Density 21.5/Integrales/Octandre/Hyperprism/Poeme Electronique – Robert Craft ... LP
Columbia, 1958. Very Good ... $8.99
A seminal set of recordings of material from Edgar Varese – key Robert Craft takes on three earlier compositions, and the debut of "Poeme Electronique", which was created at the 1958 Brussels World Fair! "Ionisation" hs a complex mix of percussion instruments, played by thirteen players – with a quality that's almost a key precursor to the music of Harry Partch. "Density 21.5" is a haunting piece for solo flute – filled with unusual tones and textures – and "Integrales" has a fuller orchestral presentation, and a nicely bombastic vibe, with woodwind tones and percussion colliding beautifully! That sound continues in "Octandre" – a 20s composition that shows just how far Varese was ahead of his time – as does "Hyperprism", from the same year, which is even more dramatic. "Poem Electronique" has a very different approach – all analogue electronics, used in an illustration of Varese's concept of "organized sound", but with a feel that's similar to the best musique concrete material of the 50s.

Cherry Red (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 4 CDs ... About June 1, 2018
Cold wave completists, eat your heart out – because this incredible 4CD set is overflowing with early analogue electronic gems from the UK scene – served up in a really beautiful book-style package that's overflowing with notes to support the superb selection of tracks! The music here is definitely on the colder side of the spectrum – that initial impulse on the UK scene to rework some of the German electronics of the period with leaner modes, and take them into even more inventive territory during the post-punk years – before things got too commercial in UK pop, or too overburdened with industrial posturing! The music here is from those great early years of labels like Cherry Red, Rough Trade, and other key UK indies – and the package features 60 titles that include "Fractured Smile" by Inter City Static, "RAM" by The Klingons, "Computer Bank" by Five Times Of Dust, "Holiday Camp" by Blancmange, "I Am Your Shadow" by Colin Potter, "Joe Goes To New York" by Adrian Smith, "Sedation" by O Yuki Conjugate, "In The Room" by Third Door On The Left, "Eco Beat" by DC3, "What A Day" by Throbbing Gristle, "Western Vein" by Konstruktivist, "Music To Save The World By" by Alan Burnham, "Kodak Ghosts Run Amok" by Eyeless In Gaza, "New Muzak" by Instant Automatons, "Robot Dance" by Sea Of Wires, "Mzui (extract)" by Gilbert & Lewis, and "Muslin Gauze Muslim Prayer" by Muzlimgauze.

Soul Jazz (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 22.99
A totally great look at the explosion of electronic sounds in German music during the 70s – a set that goes way past more familiar Krautrock territory, to bring together elements from the artier side of the spectrum too, and even run up to some of the first great moments of the German new wave! Soul Jazz have been down this path before, but this time they're maybe following the road a little farther – as the track selection is especially great, and has a way of really illuminating the special sound of this generation, even if you already know some of the music! There's a few more meditative moments than on previous volumes, mixed with some tuneful tracks, funky numbers, and even a few subtle rockers – all laid out in a way that really makes the songs sound great together as a whole. Titles include "Dronz" by Novalis, Wide Open Space Machine" by Klaus Weiss, "Deutscher Wald" by Deutsche Wertarbeit, "I'll Be Your Singer You'll Be My Song" by AR & Machines, "The Brain Of Oskar Panizza" by Michael Bundt, "And The Waters Opened" by Between, "White Overalls" by La Dusseldorf, "Tanz Der Vogel In Den Winden" by Achim Reichel, "Hollywood" by Cluster, "Die Haut Der Frau" by Pyrolator, and "Passage" by Streetmark.

Cherry Red (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. Used 4 CDs ... $22.99
An incredible collection of electronic sounds that went on to inform generations of rock, pop, and dance music in years to come – but all featured here with much more interesting examples from the European roots of the genre! There's a wonderful criss-crossing of sources going on here – some academic experimenters from electronic labs, some prog musicians getting a bit more analog, some early digital keyboard wizards, and some downright punky folks – using electronics instead of guitars! The blend is wonderful, and very ear-opening – even more amazing than the partner set in this series, Close To The Noise Floor, which focused on the UK. The music here includes early work by artists you might not expect in such company, alongside others who flourished briefly at the time, gave us some great sounds – then quickly disappeared. Fortunately, the big book of notes tells all the details of the groups and their music – making the whole thing as historically informative as it is entertaining. Titles include "Ich Will" by DAF, "Ny Ny" by Truus De Groot, "Caramel" by Cluster, "Godot Was Here" by Human Flesh, "Soviet Invasion" by Doxa Sinistra, "Last Lift" by Not Only Bones, "Geld" by Malaria, "Son" by Minny Pops, "What's Dat" by Der Plan, "Industrial Tape Track 3 (excerpt)" by Maurizio Bianchi, "Sexual Discipline" by Die Form, "Flanco Dama" by Diseno Corbusier, "Troglodyten" by Asmus Tietchens, "Hymne Au Ver" by Bene Gesserit, "Secret Affair No 2" by Borghesia, "Glue Head" by Yello, "Party Talk" by Andre De Koning, "Shai Hulud" by Bernard Szajner, and "TAnze & Singen" by DDAA. 61 tracks in all!

Electro soul from a key moment in the South African scene – that point in the late 80s when it really seemed like there was some light at the end of the tunnel, and the nation's music seemed to hit a new vibe to match! The grooves here are unabashedly catchy, and seem to revel in the kind of instrumentation that was bit in American indie soul a few years before – lots of beats, basslines, and keyboards – often in support of vocals that flow nicely along with the groove, augmenting the sound with the kind of approach that must have been especially strong on the dancefloor! Most tracks here are from the Music Team label, who had a great ear for this stile at the moment – and titles include "Watsotsama" by Scotch Band, "Sisonke" by Kakappa, "Ma Hero (dub)" by Spirro, "What Next (dub)" by Jivaro, "Ushelakanjani" by Jazino, "New Lover" by The Equals, "Ayoba-Yo" by The Hard Workers, "Sorry Bra" by Ayobayo Band, "Sobohla Manyosi" by Rush, and "Go Siami" by La Viva.

A deep look at the electronic music underground in the 60s, 70s, and 80s – not the academic theoreticians who were slaving away in university laboratories, but the more independent, freewheeling talents who were using the initial analogue moment to open up their own boundaries in time and space! The work ranges from unusual 60s instrumentals, through 70s hippie electronics, to some 80s recordings that might have been termed new age by the uninitiated – but which instead, all these years later, stand as some lost moments of cosmic expression! There's few folks we trust to lead us down a musical path as much as the guys at Soul Jazz – and this time, they've definitely taken us in the right direction – with cuts that include "Midnight" by Tim Blake, "Gang (For Rock Industry)" by JB Banfi, "To The Other Side Of The Sky" by Michael Garrison, "By Water" by Stratis, "Improvisation On A Concerto Generator" by Laurie Spiegel, "Starborn Suite (part 1)" by Steven Halpern, "Ceres Motion" by Mother Mallard's Portable Masterpiece Company, "As Above So Below" by Carl Matthews, "In The Beginning" by Michael Stearns, "Ever New" by Beverly Glenn-Copeland, "Variations VII Sur Le Theme Des Bene Gesserit" by Richard Pinhas, and "Ancient Stars" by Kevin Braheny.

The sounds are an unusual link between the musique concrete scene in France and some of the more commercial uses of electronics at the time – almost a bit like the blend that was coming from some of the hipper cats experimenting in The Netherlands, even though this album only received a limited release as a non-commercial sound library record.

A much-needed look at the incredible German music scene of the 70s – a sprawling landscape of prog, fusion, electronics, and more – all put together beautifully here with the usual completeness we've come to expect from Soul Jazz! Many of the names are familiar – the sorts you've either passed by in the record racks, or seen priced up high in the collectible imports up on display – and if you've never dipped into these grooves, this set is a perfect way to start – as the folks at Soul Jazz have really tuned their ears well, to pick out key tracks that really resonate strongly with music of the 21st Century – a good deal of which was influenced by these groundbreaking acts. Some cuts are long, but never too overindulgent – and the instrumentation and production techniques are really mindblowing – extremely creative, and often presented here in their most open, honest form. As usual with Soul Jazz, the notes are wonderful – and titles include "Devotion" by Between, "Dino" by Harmonia, "This Morning" by Gila, "Rambo Zambo" by Kollektiv, "La Chasse Aux Microbes" by Michael Bundt, "It's A Rainy Day Sunshine Girl" by Faust, "Hallo Gallo" by Neu, "Rheinita" by La Dusseldorf, "Morgengruss" by Popul Vuh, "Fly United" by Amon Duul II, "Soham" by Deuter, "I Want More" by Can, "Geradewohl" by Roedelius, "No Man's Land" by Tangerine Dream, "Daydream" by Ash Ra Tempel, "High Life" by Ibliss, and "Heisse Lippen" by Cluster.

Many of the names are familiar – the sorts you've either passed by in the record racks, or seen priced up high in the collectible imports up on display – and if you've never dipped into these grooves, this set is a perfect way to start – as the folks at Soul Jazz have really tuned their ears well, to pick out key tracks that really resonate strongly with music of the 21st Century – a good deal of which was influenced by these groundbreaking acts. Some cuts are long, but never too overindulgent – and the instrumentation and production techniques are really mindblowing – extremely creative, and often presented here in their most open, honest form. 13 tracks on 2LPs: "Spectacle" by Can, "Devotion" by Between, "Dino" and "Veterano" by Harmonia, "Rambo Zambo" by Kollektiv, "Morgengruss" by Popol Vuh, "Auf Dem Schwarzen Canal" by Conrad Schnitzler, "It's A Rainy Day Sunshine Girl" by Faust, "Hallo Gallo" by Neu!" and more.

Four Flies (Italy), 1978. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... Out Of Stock
Four sweet tracks from the great Alessandro Alessandroni – very groovy material that takes his sound library genius into the Italian club scene – with a set of tracks that are years ahead of their time! The album and all titles have "Afro" at the start – but there's more of an electro vibe overall – one that uses Alessandroni's long experience with analogue electronics and keyboards, and forges those sounds onto a pulsating groove with a set of rhythms that are maybe more pre-house than anything you'd guess from the disco generation! All tracks are instrumentals, and titles include "Afro Voodoo", "Afro Darkness", "Afro Sentiment", and "Afro Discoteca". LP, Vinyl record album

You might know Misha Panfilov from his soulful 45s done for the Funk Night label – but here, the Estonian musician is in completely different territory – working alongside partner Volodja Brodsky in a freewheeling blend of acoustic and electric elements – performed live, on instruments that include prepared piano, drums, percussion, and lots of synthesizer and effects! The music has this organic core that's great – and because of the liveness, there's maybe a bit more sense of improvisation that seems especially strong on the piano and percussion – elements that are often not as buried as on other electro-acoustic recordings. Titles include "Magna Res", "A Contrario", "Subito", "Nigra In Candida Vertere", "Centaurea", and "Tempus Saltandi". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Otto SidhartaIndonesian Electronic Music 1979 to 1984 ... LP
Sub Rosa (Belgium), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Electronic music from a very far-flung source – served up here in a set of vintage recordings by one of the leading experimentalists in Indonesia at the end of the 70s – an artist with a sound that's nicely different than preceding decades of American and European electronic pioneers! Part of the quality of the music comes from the devices used – which are sometimes more modern than those from the earliest analogue years – but other elements in the music stand out from a purely compositional perspective – especially Otto Sidharta's use of space in his earliest work, and his sense of nature and the planet – which gives some of these pieces an organic vibe. Overall, the music is mostly on the more tuneful side of the spectrum – if not directly melodic – and titles include "Nature", "Gamelan", "Saluang", "Ngendau", "Gong", "Chimes", "Perc & Gliss", "Listrik", and "CO2".

Ace (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A totally cool collection of really offbeat numbers with a space age sort of theme – tunes that run the gamut from rock instrumentals to electronic pop – with lots of stops along the space in between! The package is right up there with some of the best "themed" collections by Ace Records – not just a superb selection of tunes, but really put together in the best way possible – with thoughtful transitions between the tunes, and a huge booklet of notes and label images – with some text on the late Vicki Fox, who put together this set, and others for Ace in the past. You'll definitely recognize a few names here, but the setting makes them sound really amazing and unique – especially some of the soul, jazz, and blues artists in the mix. Titles include "Waltz In Orbit" by Ray Cathode, "Watusi Zombie" by Jan Davis, "Savage Girl" by Felix & His Fabulous Cats, "War Of The Worlds" by The Atlantics, "Caravan" by Gabor Szabo, "Hot Pot" by The Tornados, "Funky Me" by Timmy Thomas, "Uh Oh" by The Imps, "Flameout" by 101 Strings, "It's Karate Time" by Travis Wammack, "Long Sentence" by The Upsetters, "B'Wana Bongos" by Preston Epps, "Hung Over" by The Martinis, "Music To Watch Space Girls By" by Leonard Nimoy, "Aztec" by Bo Diddley, "Watusie Freeze (part 1)" by Big Walter & The Thunderbirds, and "RFD Rangoon" by The Forbidden Five.

Weird and wonderful electronics from the Italian scene of the early 80s – a selection of instrumental tracks that were originally designed for TV programs on space and the stars! The music is heavy on analogue elements – lots of dark moogy moments, soaring sonic flights, and some more focused keyboard passages that get nicely rhythmic, while still sounding a bit creepy – almost in the mode of electronic horror work from the time, but with less tension, thanks to some of the freer-floating sonic passages! Titles on this first volume include "Ossessione Dello Spazio", "Rampa Di Lancio", "Mondi Di Ghiaccio", "Stelle Sconoscuite", "Viaggio Nell'Universo", and "Leggende Di Atri Mondi" LP, Vinyl record album

Herb AlpertBeyond ... LP
A&M, 1980. Very Good+ ... $1.99
An incredible later record from Herb Alpert – working in a soulful funky fusion mode that really is well beyond the style that made him famous in the 60s! We love the easy breezy 60s sound of Herb & The Tijuana Brass too, but he really stepped up his game in exciting ways on records like Rise, and he takes some even further, previously unexplored creative steps on Beyond, this aptly titled set! Plenty of smoothed out funky fusion grooves, especially on the first half of the record, but by the midway point he's also dabbling in Spanish guitar inflected melodies, bringing in some spacey electronics and sequencing, and other daring twists – but never compromises on the consistently groovy feel overall. Includes "Kamali", "The Continental", "Reach For The Stars", "Red Hot", "Beyond", "Keep It Goin'", "The Factory" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

The grooves here sometimes move at a speed that might have you checking the settings on your turntable – but the vocals correct that correct that aspect in a great way, as the percussion and instrumentation shift between electronic and acoustic elements – all percolating at a nice sort of frenzy!

Elektra/Black Truffle (UK), 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $20.99
Noisy brilliance from AMM – one of the most important avant acts of the 60s – and an incredible bridge between jazz, psych, and 20th Century classical worlds! The group were a powerhouse on the London scene of the middle of the decade – reportedly a huge influence on Pink Floyd, too – and all these many years later, there's hardly been a record to match the power of this amazing debut – a record that was even more equally amazingly released by Elektra Records on its first pressing! These guys may have made the most noise anyone had in the studio for this set – and that even includes the Velvet Underground, and any 60s electronic musician too – and the legendary lineup features Cornelius Cardew on piano, cello, and transistor radio; Lou Gare on tenor and violin; Eddie Prevost on drums, xylophone, bells, and cymbals; Keith Rowe on guitar and transistor radio; and Lawrence Sheaff on cello, accordion, clarinet, and one more transistor radio. Titles include "Later During A Flaming Riviera Sunset" and "After Rapidly Circling The Plaza". LP, Vinyl record album

A beautiful collaboration between two of the most important forces in leftfield music in the early 80s – multi-media artist Laurie Anderson and modern string legends Kronos Quartet – coming together here in an extended Anderson composition inspired by the experience of Hurricane Sandy! It's been years since we've last heard from Laurie, and she's really returned to her roots here – still using her voice a bit, but also playing violin a fair bit too, along with keyboards, samples, percussion, and lots of her unusual filters and other electronic elements. Most selections are sort, and work together beautifully – almost in territory that might be described as a string quartet take on the modes of United States. Titles include "All The Extinct Animals", "Built You A Mountain", "Darkness Falls", "Dreams Translated", "The Water Rises", "Our Street Is A Black River", "Nothing Left But Their Names", "Thunder Continues In The Aftermath", "Old Motors & Helicopters", and "Everything Is Floating".

Horace AndyIn The Light (plus In The Light Dub) ... CD
Hungry Town/17 North Parade, 1977. New Copy ... $12.99 14.98
Horace Andy's holding an acoustic guitar on the cover, but the record's got some searing electric lines in the mix – really bringing this sharp edge to the already-great rhythms behind Andy's famous vocals! Horace is one of the few cats who can sing in the higher end of the vocal register, yet still come across with a totally badass vibe – thanks partly to the righteous message in his lyrics, and the hip-tripping grooves on the tracks – which could make just about any element sound great, and only reinforce the greatness of the Horace Andy style! The album's a stone classic, and for good reason – and titles include "Leave Rasta", "Do You Love My Music", "Hey There Woman", "Government Land", "Problems", "In The Light", and "Collie Herb". CD also includes the seminal In The Light Dub – one of those cases where a dub album contains all the brilliance of the original set around which it was based – yet comes across with a completely different sound altogether! The original record was focused strongly on the soulful currents of Horace Andy's voice – but the dub set is predominantly instrumental, which buries a bit of the political message in the lyrics – yet seems to paint the same sort of social pictures with the power of its sounds – a rich palette of rhythms, electronics, and effects – often with a darkness that's unspeakable in words, but incredibly powerful at a sonic level. Titles include "Dub There", "Government Dub", "Rasta Dub", "Fever Dub", "Dub The Light", "Dub Down Rome", and "I & I". CD

You might know Jaimie Branch as a trumpeter, but as part of the Anteloper duo she also handles a fair bit of electronics – working alongside drummer Jason Nazary, who's also pretty handy with the synth as well! The album was recorded live, and features a great pairing of electronic and acoustic elements – and is presented here with notes from Rob Mazurek, whose own music can hit similar territory at times – making him the perfect person to direct our approach to the proceedings! However, there's also a difference here – some nicely organic moments at times, when the electronics almost take on qualities of the other instruments – mixed with other passages that have them in starker contrast. Titles include "Fossil Record", "Oryx", "Lethal Curve", and "Seclusion Self". Cassette

The music is handled by a host of producers, and most numbers are in a beat-heavy mode that follows on her previous material – funky, but not always in a Prince-ish way – but always tuneful and heavy on the hooks! Titles include "Help Wanted", "Mismatch", "Sychronize", "The Same Dream", "Since I Fell For You", "You Can't Win", and "Your Eyes". This 2CD version features lots of bonus tracks – 14 more selections that include a big number of remixes of the tracks "Mismatch", "The same Dream", and "Since I Fell For You". CD

✨✧ Jon Appleton & Don CherryHuman Music (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Flying Dutchman/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A fantastic record – and a really mindblowing mix of spiritual jazz and electronics! The set is an amazing collaboration between trumpeter Don Cherry and pioneering electronic musician Jon Appleton – one of those rare meetings of the minds that goes far deeper than you'd expect! On the set, Cherry's trumpet, flute, and percussion is heavily processed by Appleton – often in ways that are organic enough to keep with Cherry's other experiments of the time, and with the "Human Music" title of the set – but sometimes with the more playful feel of Appleton's other music from the time. The mix of electronics and improvisation is amazing – years ahead of its time, and with a haunting sound that works perfectly against Cherry's style of restrained spiritualism. The LP's got 4 long tracks – "Boa", "Oba", "Abo", and "Bao" – all recorded live in the studio! The bonus tracks are "Jon" and "Don". CD

Aqueduct EnsembleImprovisations On An Apricot ... LP
Last Resort (UK), 2018. New Copy ... $19.99
Aqueduct Ensemble is more of a duo than the large group you'd expect from their name – but they manage to serve up some very spacious sounds over the course of these improvised tracks! The core of the group features Stu on piano and Kit on woodwinds and electronics – acoustic elements that are often layered a bit, with currents that move far from jazz into more lyrical soundscapes – maybe somewhere in that world after the ECM experiments of the 70s, when instrumental groups from a variety of different scenes were making subtle, beautiful records like this! We might put this material somewhere in the sonic territory of Durutti Column, Penquin Cafe Orchestra, or any number of records from the Benelux scene – but there's also a more pastoral quality to the album that really gives it a special vibe. Titles include "Potter's View North", "Borrowed Sax Test", "Cut Grass 1 to 3", "In Perfect Air", and "To Close Without Saving". LP, Vinyl record album

Neil Ardley's New Jazz OrchestraOn The Radio – BBC Sessions 1971 ... CD
Dusk Fire/BBC (UK), 1971. New Copy ... $14.99
Fantastic live recordings from the legendary New Jazz Orchestra of Neil Ardley – a key force that united the worlds of British avant jazz and rock at the start of the 70s – but with a style that leaned a lot more towards the world of the former overall! Many of these players are artists who helped forge a whole new voice for Brit jazz in the 60s, and some were then rising to work with prog groups on bigger labels too – yet they all come together here wonderfully under the direction of Ardley – a genius for balancing freedom and cohesion, individual ideas and group energy! The tunes explode with the same sort of bold colors as Neil's few classic albums of the period – and the first six tracks feature a large group with Derek Wadsworth and Mike Gibbs on trombones, Don Rendell and Dick Heckstall-Smith on reeds, Dave Greenslade on organ and electric piano, Frank Ricotti on vibes, and Harry Beckett, Ian Carr, and Henry Lowther on trumpets – while the last track features a smaller group with Rendell, Carr, and the unusual inclusion of Barry Guy on amplified bass and Keith Winter on electronics. All tracks are well-recorded, and pulled from the BBC vaults – and titles include "Stratusphunk", "Time Flowers", "Terre De Miel", "The Immortal Ninth", "Pendulum", and "Half Blue". CD

Harvest/4 Men With Beards, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... About May 18, 2018
A wonderful departure for Kevin Ayers – an album that's a lot lighter and more whimsical than his original fame with Soft Machine! The tunes are extremely playful, and often quite catchy – almost a Donovan-esque blend of folksy roots and jazz inflections – but tuned a bit more towards trippier ends, thanks to instrumentation that includes celeste, electronics, flute, oboe, kazoo, cello, organ, and a wide range of different guitars! David Bedford handled arrangements, and other players on the session include some ex-Soft Machine comrades – like Hugh Hopper and Robert Wyatt! Ayers' vocals are produced with a nicely compressed quality that squeezes them in alongside the instrumentation – and titles include "Joy Of A Toy Continued", "The Lady Rachel", "All This Crazy Gift Of Time", "Eleanor's Cake", and "Girl On A Swing".

One of the sweetest electric records to come from 70s Brazil – the fabulous first effort from the Azymuth trio, and work that's hardly been matched again! Although the group here have plenty of the warm keyboard touches of their more famous later work, they're also moving in territory that's a bit more abstract as well – using some noisier electronics amidst the smoother ones, to create a style that's somewhere between fusion, electric funk, and some of the more soaring Brazilian rhythms of the post-bossa years! The keyboards of Jose Roberto Bertrami are worth the price of admission alone – and include Fender Rhodes, Arp, and clavinet – plus bits of Hammond organ too! There's more than a few great breaks and samples on the set – and titles include "Brazil", "Caca De Conta", "Melo Dos Dois Bicudos", "Manha", "Periscopio", and "Montreal City".

Wally Badarou plays a range of spacey keyboards that include synclavier, mini moog, and prophet 5 – all over some beats that are a mix of electro and Carribean rhythms – in a style that's part jazzy, part new agey, and part 80s groove! The record's an unusual one, but it's pretty darn compelling – especially from a vantage point of the many years since it was recorded – because Badarou's clearly years ahead of his time, working here in a style that predates many changes to come in electronic music of the 21st century! Tracks include "Endless Race", "Jungle", "Rain", "Keys", "Mambo", and "Canyons". CD

The album features spacey orchestral settings arranged by Warren Baker, and conducted by Andre Montero – plus fantastic work on the "electro theremin" by Paul Tanner – a different variation on the incredible post-war electronic instrument! The "electro theremin" was Tanner's own creation, and it works on a cool sliding principle that creates a lot of weird spacey dipping, turning, and soaring effects. The album's packaged in a lovingly heavy cover, with a nude "heavenly body" floating in space amidst a sea of bright colors!

The album's served up from a host of electronic sources – a range of moog synths, Arp, Farfisa, Logan string ensemble, Roland echo chamber, Eventide Clockworks phaser, and other sources – all used in ways by Banfi that are soaring and spacious, but never sleepy – always with this slightly upbeat vibe and sense of color that was maybe one of the differences between the 70s French electronic scene and the German one.

A key turning point in the career of Italian modernist Franco Battiato – as he leaves behind the straighter progressive format of his first two albums, and moves into a mode that's much more experimental! The album features four long compositions – all of which show Battiato developing strongly as a composer – mixing together voice, electronics, prepared piano, and lots of heavy processing. The sound isn't as spare as on some of his later albums, but the overall sound is incredible – proof that he was really breaking into new territory!

This album was issued on the 25th anniversary of the sonic institution – and it features a strong mix of older analogue styles with some more 80s-oriented electronics – yet still with all the depth you'd expect from the Radiophonic Workshop during its classic years! These aren't tinny slasher keyboards, or electro pop programs – and instead, the music here is as thoughtful and compelling as the sounds created during the Delia Derbyshire generation – but are handled by artists who include Peter Howell, Paddy Kingsland, Dick Mills, Jonathan Gibbs, Elizabeth Parker, and Malcolm Clarke.

A crucial album in the sound of late 60s Warner – recorded by west coasters The Beau Brummels in the heart of Tennessee, at the legendary studios of country producer Owen Bradley! This meeting of west and country is fantastic – a really incredible extension of earlier folksy rock styles forged by Dylan, Fred Neil, Tim Buckley, and others – handled with incredible care, and a style that's equally honest and ironic – but coming together with a sound that's unlike anything else we can think of – one of those rare few albums that somehow draws from a wealth of inspiration, but manages to make something completely standout in the process – almost a Feelies/Good Earth for its own generation! Tremendous stuff – and titles include "Jessica", "Bless You California", "I'm A Sleeper", "Little Bird", "Turn Around", and "An Added Attraction". Very cool double LP reissue – with loads of bonus tracks that include "Long Black Veil", "Confessions (demo)", "High There", "Deep Water (alt version)", "Love Can Fall A Long Way Down (alt mix)", "Bittersweet", "Jessica (alt version)", "Tan Oak Tree", "Just A Little Bit Of Lovin (demo)", "I Love You Mama (alt version)", "I'll Be Your Baby (alt version)", and "Lift Me (alt take)".

Born Bad (France), Early 80s. New Copy 2LP ... $26.99
Totally cool, totally amazing music from the enigmatic Francis Bebey – a contemporary on the early 80s African scene of William Onyeabor, and an equally experimental artists! Bebey used a fair bit of electronics, but often with sounds that had acoustic roots – in this case, the ultra cool sansa, which is a similar thumb piano to the kalimba – amplified here in really great ways, and mixed with some moody, dark elements throughout! The music has much more of a 70s vintage than you'd guess from the dates on the record – thanks partly to the raw percussion, and very offbeat production – which sometimes is mellow, sometimes bursts out in these shocking waves of sound. Titles include "Sanza Tristesse", "Forest Nativity", "Sunny Crypt", "Ngoma Likembe", "Guinee", "Di Saegi", and "Binta Madiallo". LP, Vinyl record album
