✨✧ HousemartinsLondon 0 Hull 4 ... LP
Go! Discs (UK), 1986. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A jangle pop masterpiece from The Housemartins – a melodic mid 80s effort that still sounds incredible, and a record that's the very definition of deceptive simplicity in indie pop – with layers and layers of depth underneath the charismatic lead vocals, choruses, chiming guitars & rhythm! There's both spiritual and political resonance in these songs the might have flown right over our heads as kids, but then and now, it still works magically as effervescent pop. To put it simply, this belongs in the 80s indie pantheon with the Smiths and other top shelf groups of the time. Fantastic! Titles include "Happy Hour", "Get Up Off Our Knees", "Flag Day", "Anxious", "Reverends Revenge", "Sitting On A Fence", "Sheep", "Over There", "We're Not Deep", "Lean On Me" and "Freedom". LP, Vinyl record album
(US pressing on Elektra, including the printed inner sleeve. Cover has some wear.)

✨✧ Last PoetsLast Poets (Douglas pressing) ... LP
Douglas, 1970. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first album by the second group to call themselves the Last Poets – and as fierce a document of their rich talents as you'll ever find – bursting forth with anger and righteousness at a level as tight as Gil Scott-Heron's first album! The group here is the key second lineup of the ensemble of wordsmiths – comprised of Abiodun Oyewole, Alafia Pudim, and Omar Ben Hassan, plus the percussionist Nilaja – and most cuts feature only spare percussion backing over the spoken protest poetry – delivered with a brutal edge that really sums up the righteous politics of the time. Titles include "Run, N*gger", "On The Subway", "When The Revolution Comes", "Jones Comin' Down", "Black Thighs", "N*ggers Are Scared Of Revolution", and "Wake Up, N*ggers" – all of which should give you a good picture of what's going on with the record! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Rudy Salvini/Jerry Coker/Ree BrunellIntro To Jazz ... LP
Jazz Records, Mid 50s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful and beautifully obscure set of jazz from the San Francisco scene of the 50s – a set that's split between work by the Rudy Salvini big band, singer Ree Brunell, and smaller group tunes by the Jerry Coker Quartet. Coker's a name that we mostly know from larger group work of later years – but he really sounds tremendous here – stepping out in a small group format on tenor, alongside guitar by Eddie Duran, trumpet by Allan Kieger, and bass by Dean Reilly. These tunes have a wonderfully moody and fluid feel – almost like some of the late 50s Jimmy Giuffre trio work – and Coker titles include "Giggling Oysters", "You'll Stay", and "Waters Edge". The Rudy Salvini band is a pretty nice ensemble – led by trumpeter Rudy in a hard-swinging mode, but one that's filled with rich colors and tones as well. Salvini tunes include "Boots Boots", "Topsy Returns", "Yesterdays", and "Smithsonian". Last up is singer Ree Brunell – a lovely little vocalist with an intimate approach that's a bit in the Chris Connor mode – and amazingly playing drums on the tunes while she's singing, on tracks that include "I'm Glad There Is You", "You Turned The Tables On Me", and "Falling In Love With Love". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has clear tape on the top seam and bottom corners.)
