✨✧ Gene Chandler'80 ... LP
Chi Sound/20th Century, 1980. Used ... Out Of Stock
A nice record of modern soul that got a bit overlooked at the time because of the poor fate of the Chi-Sound label. The record's filled with Chicago soul talent like Tom Tom 84, Sonny Sanders, and Carl Davis, and it's a good updating of Gene's Chicago soul sound towards a style that's more modern soul-oriented. We've got a huge soft spot for the track "Does She Have A Friend?", which is a nice two-step groover, and the LP includes a number of other nice ones like "All About The Paper", "Let Me Make Love to You", and a remake of his classic, called "Rainbow '80".

Sound 80, Mid 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Sweet Hammond and keyboard work from Reginald Buckner – a really overlooked player, but one with a hell of a groove! The tracks here are mighty tight, and have a great funky undercurrent – thanks to sweet bass from Charles Gater and some especially nice drums from Ron Lee – who brings in a few tight breaks to the record!

✨✧ Pat Metheny80/81 ... LP
ECM, 1980. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $6.99
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".

Jerzy MilianJerzy Milian 80 – 1956 to 2004 ... CD
GAD (Poland), Late 50s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $16.99
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".

Gerald WigginsAround The World In 80 Days ... CD
Specialty/OJC, Late 50s. Used ... $6.99
A great little record – way more than just a simple jazz version of a soundtrack! True, the Wiggins trio is working here with material from Victor Young's score to Around The World In 80 Days – but Gerald really opens all the tracks up on the piano, so much so that we can hardly recognize most numbers – thanks to the Wiggins touch on the keys, and to some fiery work on rhythm by drummer Bill Douglass and bassist Eugene Wright. Possibly David Axelrod's production helped in hitting the sound of the set (the session was one of his first!) – but whatever the case, the album's a great one, and features the tunes "La Coquette", "Around The World Beguine", "Aouda", "Passepartout", and "Way Out West".

✨✧ VariousRich Medina Presents Jump N Funk ... CD
BBE (UK), Mid 70s/Late 2000s/Early 2010s. Used 2CD ... 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.

Mikolaj HertelEpizod A ... CD
GAD (Poland), Mid 80s. New Copy ... $16.99
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".

Oliver LakeDedicated To Dolphy ... CD
Black Saint (Italy), 1994. Used ... $12.99
A Dolphy record in sound and spirit – and one of the best Oliver Lake albums we've heard from this time! The tunes are either Eric Dolphy classics, or Lake originals with a very Eric-like approach – and they get great handling by a quintet that knows how to still swing heavily, even while reaching out on the solos – a balance that's very much like the early Dolphy albums for Prestige! Lake handles his horn with loads of deft lines that are no surprise, given his own legacy in jazz – but there's a definite sense of Dolphy angles and spirit going on too – supported by great work from Russell Gunn on trumpet, Charles Eubanks on piano, Belden Bullock on bass, and Cecil Brooks on drums – the last of whom brings some powerhouse energy that really keeps the album going. Titles include "Fire Waltz", "Hat & Beard", "Miss Ann", "Nov 80", "Page 4", "GW", and "245". CD

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

Memphis HornsHigh On Music/Get On Up & Dance ... CD
RCA/FTG, 1976/1977. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
A pair of killers from this legendary group! High On Music is one of the funkiest albums ever from The Memphis Horns – that super-tight instrumental combo headed by Andrew Love on tenor and Wayne Jackson on trumpet! Both players had years in the Memphis soul scene under their belt by the time of this set – and instead of just going for familiar modes, they wisely try to reach for a whole new groove – bringing in a bit of New York funk from the time, particularly the tighter ensemble sound of the Fatback generation. Booker T still handles production, which ensures a link to Memphis roots – and there's some great keyboards, which underscore the horns nicely. Titles include "Freedom Train", "Get It Up", "80 Proof Red", "Move Your Feet", "Keep On Doin' It", "Crystal Mellow", "Love's Mood", and "Beale Street Shuffle". On Get Up & Dance, The Memphis Horns expand their groove – still serving up their great blend of funky soul horns, but also adding in a bit of vocals too! The core focus of the album is still instrumental – based around that amazing sound led by Memphis soul legends Andrew Love and Wayne Jackson – but given the dancefloor orientation of some of the best tracks here, vocals are a perfect blend for the sound – lyrics that never dominate too much, but which have a great way of underscoring the groove! Singers include DJ Rogers, Lani Groves, Deniece Williams, and James Gilstrap all sing on the record – and titles include "Just For Your Love", a smooth mellow stepper that's pretty darn catchy – plus "Love Is Happiness", "Get Up And Dance", "Memphis Nights", "What The Funk", "Don't Abuse It", "Keep On Smilin", and "Waitin For The Flood".

Private (Italy), 1981. Near Mint- (reissue)... $29.99
A wonderful trio led by bassist Wilber Morris – and one that also features some brilliant work from Charles Tyler on alto and baritone sax, plus drums from Denis Charles! The players work together wonderfully – with a strong pulse from Morris that really keeps the music focused at most moments, even though Charles can be quite open and loose on the drums – and Tyler's got an especially wonderful sound, with that depth of feeling we've loved in his music from the ESP years onward, heard here in possibly one of his greatest settings of the time! The set features four long tracks – "Two Fives For A Dime", "Flamingo", "Randy Son", and "Blue We". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousSurinam Funk Force – More Boogie & Disco Funk From The Surinamese Dance Floors ... CD
Rush Hour (Netherlands), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $15.99
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, "Jhoom Le" by Cyntia, "Freedom Is The Thing" by Langa Langa, and "Jammin With The Jam Band" by Jam Band 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 ... Out Of Stock
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".

A buzzing set of fiery 60s rock from Q65 – a Dutch combo that really tear it up in a garagey, but still quite pop way on this set of material cut from 1966-1968! The best part of it for us is the rusty razor rhythm guitar sound here – a really fierce element that keeps things nice and mean, even though the group had a really good handle on pop hooks.

Elektra/Pure Pleasure (UK), 1967. New Copy (reissue)... About December 15, 2016 (delayed)
The Zodiac never sounded so spooky – and the album's one of the first in a trend that explored astrology with funky musical backings! The music for the set was put together by moogy maestro Mort Garson – then making a transition from being a straight easy arranger in the early 60s, to more of a tripped-out pop-psychedelic artist of the latter part of the decade. Garson brings a nice funky undercurrent to the set – in a style that's similar to the work of David Axelrod, but which also uses a bit more electric instrumentation. Each track features a spoken bit on a Zodiac sign – written by Jacques Wilson, and spoken by Cyrus Faryar – and the album also features some nice moog work by Paul Beaver! Titles include "Aries", "Taurus", "Cancer", "Leo", and so on! (P.S.: The label says "Must Be Played In The Dark!") LP, Vinyl record album

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

Strut (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Amazing music you've probably never heard before – all from the tiny island of Mauritius in the 70s, and served up in a stunning mix of funk, blues, and soul! The grooves here are very offbeat – with rhythms that belie the island's location in the Indian Ocean near Madagascar, mixed with more contemporary touches on electric guitar, bass, and keyboards – set to lyrics that are often sung in French, usually with these haunting changes and oddly melancholy modes – all of which makes for music that's every bit as emotively powerful as it is downright groovy! Strut Records have always turned us on to new and unusual sounds – but this time around, they've really done something special – and the collection is one of our favorite releases ever from the long-running label. Titles include "Afro Mauricien" by Georges Jean Louis, "Mo Mari Fini Alle" by Catherine Velienne, "Elida" by Michel Legris, "Mone Lasser Dire Toi" by Harold Berty, "Bhai Aboo" by Claudio, "Mo Parrain" by Christophe, "Manuel Bitor" by John Kenneth Nelson, "Eliza" by Georgie Joi, and "Soul Sock Sega" by Ti L'Afrique.

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

Johnny CashOriginal Sun Sound Of Johnny Cash (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Sun/Sundazed, Late 50s/1964. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 24.98
One of the finer in Sun's collections of original mid-to-late 50s recordings by Johnny Cash – with rough hewn classics and comparably overlooked rumblers alike! As a snapshot of Cash's pre-Columbia sound, this one's pretty close to perfect. A few of his most treasured recordings appear here, and overall, it's a nice mix of the vaunted boom-chick-boom sound of Cash and combo at their most raw and classic, but it's also got some numbers that introduce stylistic touches that would ripen more in the early Columbia years – bits of piano, harmony group backing vocals and other subtles touches. That said, the title is a true statement – this is by and large the raw, original Sun sound of Johnny Cash – and it sounds as great as ever. Includes "Always Alone", "Country Boy", "Goodnight Irene", "Big River", "Thanks A Lot", "Behshazzar", "Born To Lose", "New Mexico", "I Forgot To Remember To Forget", "Two Timin' Woman", "Story Of A Broken Heart" and more.

AssagaiZimbabwe (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Philips/Prog Temple (UK), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
One of the hippest blends of African roots and psychedelic sounds ever – a tremendous record from the UK scene at the start of the 70s! The group is a unique blend of the jazz elements of the Blue Notes group from South Africa – Mongezi Feza on trumpet, Dudu Pukwana on alto and vocals, and Louis Moholo on drums – with some rock touches from guitarist Fred Coker, and Ghanian elements on percussion and vocals from Terri Quays! Most of the other players have strong jazz backgrounds, and because of that the set's got a style that's different than the usual Afro rock outing of its type – more far-reaching and cosmic overall, with some especially great passages from Feza, Pukwana, and Coker. Jade Warrior make a guest appearance too – and titles include "Barazinbar", "Wanga", "La La", "Dalani", "Bayeza", "Sanga", "Come Along", and "Kinzambi". LP, Vinyl record album

Bob BaldwinBrazilian American Soundtrack ... CD
Red River, 2016. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99 17.99
Brilliant Brazilian-tinged fusion from the mighty Bob Baldwin – the sweet, soulful keyboardist who sounds great in just about any sort of setting – but who really hits a special sort of groove on this double-length set! Bob almost seems to borrow a page from George Duke's book of Brazilian experiments in the 70s and 80s – although Baldwin's execution here is definitely more 21st Century, given the sonic palette and overall vibe of the album – which moves from a "movement 1" of "Rio/Ipanema" tracks to a "movement 2" of "New York" cuts to bring the whole thing home. The set features guest work from Leo Gandelman, Ragan Whiteside, Marion Meadows, and others – and titles include "Funky Rio", "Home From Work", "Eu Te Devoro", "Anjo De Mim", "Greatest Lover", "Caipirinha", "Children Of The Sun", "Mobile Global", "South Of The Border", and "Summer Madness".

Franco BixioA Pugni Nudi (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Cinevox (Italy), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
A funky soundtrack for this film about fist fighting – scored by the great Franco Bixio with the same sense of punch and power he brought to his crime and cop scores! The music's got this great blend of strings and pulsating passages – a sense of drama that's never overdone, and which has always got an undercurrent of funk as well – unfolding beautifully through the use of electric bass at the the bottom of most tracks, even some of the larger arrangements. Some of the best numbers have very cool keyboard or piano – ringing out with a cool compressed sound that's mighty nice – and a few cuts even have some nice funky breaks as well! Titles include "With Bare Fist", "A Fist In The Thought", "Noble Impulse", "Dog's Heart", "With Clenched Fists", and "The Hunt Down". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ BongolianMoog Maximus (180 gram pressing with download) ... LP
Blow Up (UK), 2016. New Copy ... $23.99 24.98
All hail Moog Maximus – that mighty instrument that first got going back in the 60s, handled here by Nasser Bouzida, aka Bongolian – in a mad mix of funky instrumentals! The moog's not the only thing going on here, as Bongolian brings in lots of other groovy elements too – a bit of Latin, a bit of swinging soundtrack culture, and lots of other wonderful elements, of the sort we've always loved in Bongolian's music – kind of a future funky, retro-turning mode – but never with some of the overdone cliches you'd hear from other artists. Bongolian was doing this kind of groove way before most, and still does it better than the rest – and titles include "Googa Mama", "Vacation In Westworld", "Ritmo Do Rio", "B-Boy Toga Party", and "Aries & Scorpio".

Sony, Late 60s/1970s/1980s/1990s/2000s/Mid 2010s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $35.99 37.99
A pretty faultless 20 song compilation of classic Bowie – not so much a greatest hits collection is it is a collection of signature tracks from classic eras – from as far back as 1969's "Space Oddity" up to 2016's stunning "Lazarus". It's really one flawless track after another, and as wildly different in sound and style as individual tracks can be, Bowie is such a bonafide original that you can listen straight through. If you don't own every album, this is pretty great little collection of career highlights – with "Let's Dance', "The Man Who Sold The World", "Young Americans", "The Jean Genie", "Life On Mars (2016 mix)", "Under Pressure", "Starman", "Heroes", "Fame", "Modern Love", "Rebel Rebel" and more.
