We almost never turn up their albums, and when we do, they go for a bundle. CD

✨✧ VariousRich Medina Presents Jump N Funk ... CD
BBE (UK), Mid 70s/Late 2000s/Early 2010s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
One of the coolest projects we've heard from Rich Medina in years – a killer compilation that brings together older Afro Funk tracks from the 70s with a big amount of cuts from more contemporary years – all with a blend that pushes the spirit of the continent way out into the cosmos! Medina's always been one of the most forward-thinking artists in the underground – and you can definitely hear that quality in this set – as Rich effortlessly steps back and forth in space and time, to create a unified sound that bristles with electricity, while still reveling in all the key acoustic elements from the 70s. Titles include "For The People" by Aquil, "Bango Fields" by Kutiman, "For Real (2011 edition Atjazz rmx)" by Atjazz, Olodumare" by Wale Oyejide, "Bushman" by Asiko Afrobeat Ensemble, "Stalemate" by Fela & The Afrika 70, "Jungle Beat (Mutaba)" by Sir Victor Uwaifo & His Melody Maestroes, "Soul Makossa" by Original Nairobi Afro Band, "Why Can't We Live Together (Sao Benitez BV dub)" by River Oceaon, and "Na Oil" by Seun Kuti & Fela's Egypt 80.

JoyceAnos 80s (Feminina/Agua E Luz/Tardes Cariocas/Saudade Do Futuro/bonus tracks) (4CD set) ... CD
EMI/Discobertas (Brazil), Early 80s. New Copy 4CD ... $49.99
An incredible collection – four albums that feature this amazing singer at her height, along with bonus tracks too! First up is Feminina – one of Joyce's greatest albums – and maybe the first record we'd point to for anyone interested in her music! The set's an incredible blend of vocals, acoustic guitar, and these lightly gentle arrangements – all at this new level of expression that still recognizes Joyce's bossa roots, but really moves beyond with all the sophistication of MPB in the 70s! The sound of the whole thing is wonderful – completely transcendent and mesmerizing right from the start – and Joyce penned most of the tunes and handled the arrangements – with help from Gilson Peranzzetta on a few tracks. Titles include the classic "Feminina", plus "Essa Mulher", "Coracao De Crianca", "Aldeia De Ogum", "Compor", and "Misterios". Next is Agua E Luz – an amazing mix of jazzy vocals, sparkling production, and beautiful light guitar – the younger Joyce at her best – in a wonderfully uncluttered style that makes the record a treasure all the way through! Joyce sings and plays acoustic guitar – and gets these lightly jazzy backings that often feature a bit of electricity, but never too much to dampen the acoustic heart of the record – that great sense of personality that's always made Joyce unlike any other Brazilian artist we can think of – even though so many others have tried to copy her style over the years! Joyce did all the arrangements herself, Sivuca guests on one track – and titles include "Muito Prazer", "Samba De Gago", "Agua E Luz", "Mais Uma Vez, Mais Uma Voiz", "Banho Maria", and "Meio A Meio". Tardes Cariocas is a set recorded during the same key stretch as her early 80s albums for EMI – yet much more obscure! The album's got the same brilliant blend of jazz and bossa phrasing as her classics Agua E Luz and Feminina – and really brings Joyce's beautiful vocals to the forefront, with a strong focus on that fluid, jazzy style we totally love! Acoustic guitar is key to the instrumentation, yet there's also a few electric touches on keyboards – yet used quite softly, so that the presence of Joyce really dominates the record – but with a power that's greater than some of her more solo sets. Wonderful throughout –a nd with cuts that include "Nacional Kid", "Curioso", "Baracumbarra", "Tardes Cariocas", "Luz Do Chao", and "Ela". Saudade Do Futuro is a totally hard to find Joyce album from the mid 80's. Recorded for the obscure Pointer label in Brazil, this set has more of a modern fusion feel than some of her classic recordings that we stock, but Joyce's voice is still sweet and lovely, and her songwriting's as strong as always. The set includes her classic cut "Fa Da Bahia", plus other nice tracks like "Peixe Estrela", "Sonora Garoa", "Quadrantes", "Minha Gata Rita Lee", "Stone Washed, and "Tema Para Jobim", which has a guest performance by Milton Nascimento! Set features 7 bonus tracks – recordings done with Viva Voz, Antonio Adolfo, Mario Adnet, and others – with titles that include "Acalanto", "Terra", "Pega Leve", "Canconeta", "Revendo Amigos", "Diga Ai Companheiro", and "Planeta Azul".

Bang, 1980. Near Mint- ... $11.99
One of the south's best 70s vocal groups, recorded here in their debut for CBS, produced by James Stroud with a surprisingly sweet mellow modern soul sound. Includes the nice stepper "Starry Love", plus "I Love You, I Want You, I Need You", "Into Your Soul", and "It's So Nice". A few weak moments, with a bit too 80's-ish production, but some nice moments overall. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sun RaMayan Temples ... CD
Black Saint (Italy), 1990. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sun Ra's made the move here from Egyptian pyramids to Mayan temples – but the sound is every bit as cosmic and compelling as ever! The album's one of Ra's last – a studio set recorded in Italy in 1990, and one that draws strongly from the tightening of tradition the Arkestra experienced in the 80s – working at a time of some of their greatest acceptance by jazz audiences worldwide, and able to express themselves fully in a range of different modes! The sense of tone and timing here is beautiful – almost Ellington-like at points, but still with a decidedly Sun Ra-like quality – and players on the date include Michael Ray and Ahmed Abdullah on trumpets, John Gilmore on tenor, Noel Scott and Marshall Allen on alto sax, and Tyrone Hill on trombone – and June Tyson also sings just a bit on the set. Ra plays both piano and synth, and titles include "Alone Together", "Discipline 1", "Sunset On The River Nile", "El Is The Sound Of Joy", "I'll Never Be The Same", "Theme On The Stargazers", and "Opus In Springtime". A double-length set too – nearly 80 minutes of music! CD

✨✧ VariousSurinam Funk Force – More Boogie & Disco Funk From The Surinamese Dance Floors ... LP
Rush Hour (Netherlands), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
A huge range of funky soul cuts from a very surprising source – the nation of Surinam, which didn't earn its independence until the mid 70s – which then seemed to pave the way for a big wave of wonderful music like this! The cuts often have a groove that's more northern hemisphere club than you'd expect from the nation's South American locale – and given that the nation was previously under the control of the Dutch, there's a lot of back/forth action here with European sounds, styles, and studios – which results in some great grooves that have a really unique hybrid in their approach! Rhythms are strong, but never too slick – never totally polished, as in a Euro disco mode – and instead maybe feel like some of the best underground New York material of the period – especially the sort that was drawing influence from communities of new immigrants. Some tracks have straightforward vocals, others have more of a group chant vibe – and most cuts have at least one key jazzy element, which really sharpens up the sound. Titles include "Happines" by Errol De La Fuente, "Born To Boogie" by Steve Watson, "Craziest" by Sonny Khoeblal, "The Funky G" by Sumy, "Love Dance" by Eddie Tailor, "Kaseko Attack" by Ronald Snijders, "Jamasa Roro" by Astaria, "Tirsa Song" by Sound Track Orchestra & Silvy, and "Jammin With The Jam Band" by Jam Band 80.

✨✧ Mikolaj HertelEpizod A ... CD
GAD (Poland), Mid 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sweet 80s keyboard work from Polish musician Mikolaj Hertel – a sound library artist who works here almost exclusively on the Roland Juno 106, which has these warmly resonant tones that really open up in the set! Hertel's music is a bit deeper and more melodic than some of the colder keyboard work often used in 80s soundtrack and sound library material – but also avoids all the shlockier cliches of the new age generation, too – a balance that's extremely important to the success of these sides, as Mikolaj almost tries to update older German instrumental electronics for an 80s mode, and succeeds surprisingly well in the process. The music is almost an 80s extension of the Sky Records sound of the late 70s – with all the spareness that might imply – and titles include "Epizod A", "Wewnetrzyny Puls 1", "Prominen Ciemnosci", "Pryzlot Okecie 80", "Rozmowa Z Ptakami", and "Roze W Ogrodzie Rosetto".

ECM (Germany), 1980. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the most striking Pat Metheny albums of the period – as the set features the guitarist working with an all-star group that actually features 2 horn players! The group's a quintet, with Dewey Redman and Michael Brecker on tenor sax – blowing in open and spacious modes that complement the sound of Metheny's guitar nicely and really give the set a different feel. The rest of the group features Charlie Haden on bass and Jack De Johnette on drums – and the double space of the set is well used on a set of tracks that includes "Two Folk Songs", "The Bat", "Turnaround", "Open", "Pretty Scattered", and "Goin Ahead".

✨✧ Fela & Egypt '80Beasts Of No Nation (180 gram white vinyl pressing – with download) ... LP
Knitting Factory, 1989. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the last great records from Fela – an album-long track with a very political message – delivered after the leader spent a number of years in a Nigerian jail cell, and returned to the musical world with a vengeance! Despite the late date of the track, it's still got all the raw energy of the classic Africa 70s records from the decade before – no 80s beats or keyboards, just amazing live jamming from the group – as they build layer and layer of instrumentation into a tremendous sound – all in support of the bold message in the lyrics! And even though the track stretches out for both sides of the record, it never gets boring at all – thanks to really amazing solos, and a non-stop sense of cohesion from the group.

✨✧ Jerzy MilianJerzy Milian 80 – 1956 to 2004 ... CD
GAD (Poland), Late 50s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the coolest Polish jazz musicians ever – the great vibist Jerzy Milian – honored here in a beautiful tribute to his 80 years on this planet! As the title implies, the music is from a large span of Milian's career – but most cuts are from his crucial stretch from the late 50s through the early 70s – when he was using his bold, chromatic approach on vibes in both small modern combos, and to grace some of the hipper large ensembles of the time – groups that sometimes had an MPS-like big band approach, sometimes an even groovier sound! This package brings together key tracks from Milian's career – a good number of which you won't find on CD elsewhere – along wit notes on the man and his music in both English and Polish. Titles include "Memory Of Bach", "I'll Remember Olga", "Blues For Praha", "Tempus Jazz 67 Ballada", "Szcuply Slim", "Ballet For Saxes (part 3)", "Pieces For Friend (part 1)", "Jolly Joker", "Sketches From China – Sunny Children", and "My Favourite Band".

Virgin, 1989. Very Good+ ... $8.99
Essential! When this one came out at the end of the 80's, it not only restored our faith in modern soul music, but it also drew the world's attention to the rich, rich talents that had been bubbling under in London's mid 80's rare groove scene. The record's a classic, and most of the tracks still sound as fresh today as when they were first minted – probably because Jazzie B drew heavily upon a classic soul sound in his production style, which assured the album an instant place in the upper lineage of R&B! Cuts include "Jazzie's Groove", "Keep On Movin", "Back To Life" "Fairplay", and "African Dance". Great stuff, and surprisingly fresh! LP, Vinyl record album

RCA/Audio Fidelity, 1958. New Copy (reissue)... On October 27, 2017
One of the most memorable Esquivel albums, and perhaps the first record that really let him hit his fantastic mix of off-beat orchestrations and spacey electronicized production! The arrangements are splendid, with echoey piano lines in the front that seem to trail off into the stratosphere. Behind them, the orchestra swings in a tight rocket-fueled way, soaring and dipping to match the oddly arranged piano lines. Titles include "Playfully", "That Old Black Magic", "Speak Low", "It Had To Be You", and "Night & Day". Plus, the cover's got a groovily attired model, hanging out in a very green lunar scene!

Earth Wind & Fire touch the world with this sweet batch of grooves – a set of tracks that has them firmly embracing the electric sound of 80s soul, yet still bringing in some light spiritual touches of their own! The beats are pretty heavy at points – making for plenty of groovers – but the group almost seems to shine most on the ballads, which continue to provide a perfect showcase for the vocals of Philip Bailey and Maurice White. A few cool studio touches reference the group's earlier history – a nice reminder amidst the more contemporary sounds – and titles include "You & I", "System Of Survival", "Every Now & Then", "Money Tight", "Here Today & Gone Tomorrow", "Victim Of The Modern Heart", and "Thinking Of You".

BBC/Silva Screen, 1983. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99 29.99
Weird and wonderful sounds from one of the coolest spots in the universe – the legendary BBC Radiophonic Workshop, home to a mix of surprisingly groovy and experimental electronic music! 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. Titles include "Mainstream", "Radiophonic Rock", "Computers In The Real World", "Rallyman", "Seascape", "Land & People", "Houdini's Magic Box", "Ghost In The Water", "Planet Earth", and "Catch The Wind".

Philips/Universal (Japan), 1983. New Copy ... $29.99
A later album from Jane B, but one that's still pretty darn groovy, thanks to arrangements from Alan Hawkshaw! The overall sound is somewhat in keeping with the date – keyboards and rhythms that sound more 80s than 70s – but the tunes themselves have all the breathy, sensual qualities of Birkin's best work with Serge Gainsbourg from years back – no surprise, given that Serge wrote all the tunes in the set! As before, the combination of Birkin and Gainsbourg is hard to resist – still the standard by which so much other work like this should be judged – on either side of the Atlantic. Titles include "Overseas Telegram", "Rupture Au Miroir", "Haine Pour Aime", and "Norma Jean Baker". CD

A lovely little soundtrack from Stelvio Cipriani – maybe one of his loveliest of the time – done with lots of wordless floating vocals from the great Edda Dell'Orso, whose presence gives the record a real Morricone-like feel at times! Yet the key Cipriani touches are also strongly in place – especially piano, which is acoustic throughout, and used in these beautiful, watery modes that drift along nicely with the voice – then get heavier on some of the album's standout groovers. There aren't lot of these, but even the mellower cuts have a nice sort of energy – thanks to that love of bass that always made Italian soundtracks soulful, even when mellow. CD features a total of 26 tracks in all, and really wonderful sound! CD

A great Stelvio Cipriani score for a 70s film about a creepy cult that pulls robberies – scored in a style that mixes his best erotic modes with some eerie touches that fit the nature of the villains! All our favorite 70s Cipriani modes are here – especially those keyboards that he does so well, plus some moody bottom instrumentation that creates occasional earthy percussion moments, next to some of the slinkier, sexier bits! Most tracks are relatively short, but work together in a haunting melodic pastiche – and the set features 17 titles in all, including some slightly longer numbers that have an especially groovy sound!

A host of Italian horror soundtrack composers, serving up spooky new sounds for the 80s – reflecting the shift towards more electronic instrumentation on the scene – but still used here with all the best vivid elements learned from an older era of soundtrack music! Claudio Gizzi takes over all of side one on this sound library set – and his music is a masterpiece of dark sounds and subtle sonic elements – all electronic, from what we can tell – but with a textural sophistication that takes it way past the simpler keyboard modes of the time. Side two features work from a variety of other composers, and is even more complex overall – and apart from one clubby space disco number, most of the music is pretty spare and spooky too. Titles include "Plasma", "Micromateria", "Ossessione", "Sul Filo", "Il Fantasma Dell'Opera", "Il Grande Fratello", "Le Voci Di Dentro", and "Spasmodica Attesa". LP, Vinyl record album

Beach BoysPet Sounds (stereo) (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Capitol, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
One of the greatest records of all time – and don't you forget it! Despite the countless lines of type that have been written about this record, nothing does it full justice like an all-through listen – something we're reminded of every time we put this one on the turntable, which is a heck of a lot over the years! Brian Wilson busted his ass making this little gem – and the rest of the world, and the band, were never the same again – awash in harmonies that most other groups tried to match, set to themes of young loss, longing, and frustration that really mark an emotional development – not just in the Beach Boys, but in pop music in general. And although some of the tracks are ones you've heard a million times on oldies stations, they somehow resonate together much more strongly here – taking on new meaning as the smaller elements of each song come into constellation with each other – creating a complicated tapestry of feelings set to near-godlike orchestrations. Titles include "God Only Knows", "Caroline No", "Pet Sounds", "I Just Wasn't Made for These Times", "Wouldn't It Be Nice", and "You Still Believe In Me". LP, Vinyl record album

A classic meeting between alto giant Lou Donaldson and Blue Note's crack Three Sounds combo – the great piano trio led by the mighty Gene Harris! The formula was one that Blue Note employed on a number of sessions from the time – and it makes a lot of sense, because the Three Sounds are a very tight rhythm group, just waiting for a strong soloist to front their rolling soulful grooves – in ways that really set sessions like this apart from their standard albums for the label. On this one, the Sounds give Lou a nice tight backing, and he repays the favor by laying down some very tight, very in-the-pocket solos with a good soul jazz groove. Tracks include "Jump Up", "Confirmation", "Smooth Groove", and "Blue Moon". LP, Vinyl record album

Buda (France), Mid 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A Tanzanian battle of the bands – on this sweet little set that features two of the biggest dance orchestras of the 80s! The ensembles in Tanzania at the time were far more than just musical acts – as most were funded by larger organizations, and had either a political or economic agenda as well – one that sometimes came through in the subject of the music, and which definitely resonated with the popularity of the groups as well! The approach of both groups here – Mlimani Park Orchestra and International Orchestra Safari Sound – is a blend of older guitar rhythms, ala highlife, with some fuller horn passages and vocal choruses that often have some slight social undercurrent mixed with a more upfront lyrical groove. As always with both the Zanzibara and Ethiopiques series, the notes are excellent, in boht English and French – and really help situate the larger cultural context of the music. Tracks include "Mtoto Akihilia Wembe", "Neema", and "Chenga Ya Mwili" by Mlimani Park Orchestra – and "Sosy", "Majuto", "Chatu Mkali", and "Homa Imenizidia" by International Orchestra Safari Sound.

Eden Ahbez & OthersWild Boy – The Lost Songs Of Eden Ahbez (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Bear Family (Germany), 1950s/1960s. New Copy Gatefold ... $28.99 31.99
A much-needed look at the untapped musical legacy of Eden Ahbez – the west coast mystic who's best remembered for delivering the song "Nature Boy" to Nat King Cole (legendarily walking in barefooted during a recording session!) – but who also made a range of other great music in the years that followed! Apart from "Nature Boy", and Ahbez's rare Eden's Island album from 1960, most of his other songs have fallen in in the shifting sands of time – but this record does a great job of digging up the best of the bunch, and presents them in a well-documented package that's much better than some of the public domain Eden Ahbez records that have hit the market. Song songs are by Eden, in a range of exotic vocal modes – others are by contemporaries, some in collaboration with Ahbez, some working on their own – and there's a great rante of trcks that icnlude "The Clam Man", "Umgowah", "India", "Child Of Nature", "Anna Was Mine (demo)", "Overcomers Of The World", and "Monterey" by Eden Ahbez – plus "Surfer John" by Nature Boy & Friends, "Wild Boy" by Mort Wise & The Wisemen, "Eden's Island" by Arthur Lyman, "Land Of Love" by Nat King Cole, "Hey Jacque" by Eartha Kitt, and "Palm Springs" by Ray Anthony.

A nice little Holiday album from trumpeter Herb Alpert – whose 60s set with the Tijuana Brass might well be one of our favorite Christmas albums of all time! The TJB is long gone, but Herb's still in the lead – working with a larger orchestra directed by Chris Walden – who creates a shimmering array of strings, voices, and keyboards – all in an updated take of the older Herb Alpert sound – meaning that there's some nicely pointed moments that really fit the compressed, punchy horn sound that's always been Herb's calling card. The voices sometimes hit a more familiar Christmas chorus mode, but they're often then offset by Alpert's solo work – and titles include "I'll Be Home For Christmas", "The Christmas Song", "Santa Baby", "Winter Wonderland", "The Christmas Wish", "Merry Christmas Darling", and "What Are You Doing New Years Eve". Herb didn't remake "The Bell That Couldn't Jingle" – but his original 1968 version is maybe too perfect to mess with! LP, Vinyl record album
(180 gram pressing – on colored vinyl!)

Astral Dimension (Fabio Fabor)Galassia M81 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Edizioni Minstrel/Spettro (Italy), 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
Lost sound library genius from Fabio Fabor – working here under the name of The Astral Dimension – which is a very good tag for the sound on the set! Although recorded in 1981, the record has all the warmth of some of Fabor's 70s material – lots of swirling, spacey keyboards – some in these streams of color that are really beautiful, and make you feel like you're taking a trip through the stars, with everything slowing down at warp speed – others in more spare, linear passages that evoke a slightly different mood, and balance things out nicely. The whole thing almost feels like a later update of the old "trip to space" genre for mood music records – and titles include "Antares", "Via Lattea", "Nebulosa", "Beta 700", "Stella Nova", "Monte Palomar", "Eclisse", and "Saturno".

Big BoysWhere's My Towel/Industry Standard (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Modern Classics, Early 80s. Near Mint- Gatefold (reissue)... $14.99
The oddball early 80s debut of The Big Boys – a slice of weirdness from the Austin, TX underground that paved the way for stylistically sprawling 80s punk and hardcore to come! One thing that sets The Big Boys apart is the bass sound, which is way up there in the mix. As paired with shredded-chord vocals and the brute force of the guitar and drums, the group had a really unique, nearly unprecedented sound. Oddball songs mixed with irascible punk attitude! This great reissue from Light In The Attic's Modern Classic imprint gives it the proper respect – with heavy vinyl, packaging and insert. Includes "Security", "TV", "I Don't Wanna Dance", "Identity Crisis", "Thin Line", "Advice", "Complete Control", "Work Without Pay", "Spit", "Act/Reaction", "Self-Contortion" and "Wise Up".

Jimmy Bowen & OthersVanishing Point – Original Soundtrack ... CD
Amos/Bell/Harkit (UK), Early 70s. Used ... $2.99
A real lost gem – finally reissued! The cover to this one advertises the more famous names that do tracks for the album – like Mountain, Delaney & Bonnie, and others – but the best tracks here are those by the great arranger Jimmy Bowen, who turns out some excellent complicated funky numbers that have a bit of a hippy soundtrack groove! Jimmy's work here is informed by a bit of rock scoring, but the overall feel is fast and funky – and his tunes include the great "Super Soul Theme" and "Freedom Of Expression". Another nice one is Jerry Reed's "Welcome To Nevada", which has a guitar solo by Jerry, but which is also nice and funky too! Other tunes include "You Got To Believe" by Delaney & Bonnie, "Mississippi Queen" by Mountain, "So Tired" by Eve, and "Runaway Country" by Doug Dillard. CD
