✨✧ TemptationsPsychedelic Shack/All Directions ... CD
Motown, 1970/1972. Used ... Just Sold Out!
2 killers by The Temptations! Psychedelic Shack is a Motown classic – with a deep heavy soul sound that mixed in loads of psychedelic elements in a rolling righteous groove that was perfect for the political tenor of the times. The formula worked extremely well for The Temps, and shifted them from being just a regular Motown vocal group into a super soul power that shaped soul music heavily in the next few years. Includes the classic "Psychedelic Shack", plus "Friendship Train", "Take A Stroll Thru Your Mind", "Hum Along And Dance", and "It's Summer". All Directions is pretty darn great, too – with less of a coherent sound, but plenty of great tracks – including "Love Woke Me Up This Morning", "Funky Music Sho Nuff Turns Me On", "Papa Was A Rollin Stone", and "Mother Nature".

VariousRevolutionary Spirit – The Sound Of Liverpool 1976 to 1988 (5CD set) ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy 5CD ... $44.99
A huge look at the Liverpool scene in the UK – but one that doesn't focus on the generation of the Beatles and Brit Invasion groups – and instead brings some great attention to the city's contribution to the post-punk years and beyond! The package is tremendous – 100 songs in a huge booklet of notes – tracing an evolution from the late 70s years, when Liverpool was as creative and fervent of a scene as other North England territories, like Manchester and Sheffield – but also one that could quickly develop some tuneful aspects too, which no doubt helped the rest of the UK music scene of the 80s find a way to expand in some great global directions! Throughout the whole time covered here, there's a great tension between experimentation and commercial success – one that's covered beautifully by the many tracks in the collection, and also documented in the hefty notes within. There's far too many tracks here for us to list – but let us say that the package is overflowing with work by artists as diverse as Dalek I, The Wild Swans, China Crisis, Pink Industry, Care, Box Of Toys, Deaf School, Big In Japan, Pale Fountains, Icicle Works, Dead Or Alive, The Lotus Eaters, Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Mr Amir, Brenda & The Beach Balls, Jegsy Dodd & The Sons Of Harry Cross, The La's, Jactars, Magic Carpets, Barbel, The Walking Seeds, Thomas Lang, Ministry Of Love, Nightmares In Wax, OMD, The Planets, Spitfire Boys, Geisha Girls, Royal Family & The Poor, Public Disgrace, It's Immaterial, The Balcony, The Yachts, Teardrop Explodes, Original Mirrors, The Press Gang, Moderates, Egypt For Now, Those Naughty Lumps, Flock Of Seagulls, Freeze Frame, Echo & The Bunnymen, and many more!

Gogo PenguinHumdrum Star ... CD
Blue Note, 2018. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
There's nothing humdrum about Gogo Penguin at all – as the combo are out to take the sound of the piano trio into their own great directions – really bursting forth here with a sense of energy and imagination that even blow away their previous records! The group is simultaneously concerned with the wider sound of the piano – which occasionally hits waves of sound that almost feel lifted from the post-classical scene, but a lot more dynamic – while the bass and the drums really amplify their role when called up, so that the proceedings are always thrusting forward boldly – in ways that almost remind us of the excellent Indigo Jam Unit from Japan. Titles include "Return To Text", "Transient State", "Bardo", "Strid", "Reactor", "Window", "Prayer", and "A Hundred Moons". CD

Herbie Hancock5 Original Albums (Takin Off/My Point Of View/Inventions & Dimensions/Speak Like A Child/The Prisoner) (5CD set) ... CD
Blue Note (Germany), Mid 60s. New Copy 5CD ... $19.99
The early genius of Herbie Hancock – perfectly summed up here in five classic albums for Blue Note – each presented in a tiny LP-styled sleeve! Takin Off has Herbie Hancock stepping into the limelight with an excellent batch of soul jazz tunes, including the first recording of his classic "Watermelon Man", the one track that probably put all his kids through school! Although that one went on to become a standard within a few short years in 60s jazz, it still sounds great here in the original – a very fresh take on the sound of soul jazz in the 60s – offered up here in a 7 minute version that has more sharp soloing than most other takes on the tune! The group here is great too – with Dexter Gordon on tenor, Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Butch Warren on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums – and the tracks are all also originals by a young Herbie – including "Watermelon Man", "The Maze", "Driftin", "Three Bags Full", "Alone & I", and "Empty Pockets". My Point Of View is a great mix of soul jazz and modernism! The record include a nice groovy "hit", Herbie's "Blind Man, Blind Man" – an obvious follow-up to "Watermelon Man", but still a standout track with a lot of imagination, and a fierce soul jazz hook that just won't quit! The rest of the record, while still groovy, also shows much more signs of Herbie's far-reaching conception – especially shared with players like Tony Williams, Grachan Moncur, Chuck Israels, and Grant Green – all of whom work with Herbie, Donald Byrd, and Hank Mobley – in a larger than usual group that makes for a really great sound! Titles include "A Tribute To Someone", "King Cobra", and "The Pleasure Is Mine". Inventions & Dimensions is really unique little record from Herbie Hancock – one that's almost completely improvised over Latin percussion! The setup is quite spare – and quite different than Herbie's other Blue Note work – and the group features improvised backgrounds by bassist Paul Chambers and 2 Latin percussionists, Willie Bobo and Osvaldo "Chihuahau" Martinez. Herbie only wrote simple sketches for the songs on the album, and most of the work on the tracks was done live, spontaneously, in the studio – creating a very free groove that never goes too far out, but which is far more adventurous than usual. All tracks are long, and titles include "Succotash", "Triangle", and "Mimosa". Speak Like A Child is an oft-overlooked session that has Herbie mixing a nice dose of lyricism into his usual soul jazz approach from the 60s! The sound's a bit farther-reaching than on some of Herbie's smaller group sessions – and the record features a sextet that includes Ron Carter, Mickey Roker, Jerry Dodgion, Thad Jones, and Peter Phillips – all soaring with the warmth and introspection that was showing up in some of the best Blue Notes from the time. The harder-hitting soul jazz riffs and hooks are nicely replaced by more thoughtful lines that get a bit deeper, soufully – and nearly all tracks on the set are originals by Hancock! The album's filled with great moments – and tracks include "The Sorcerer", "Riot", and "Goodbye To Childhood". Last up is The Prisoner – a nice late Blue Note change from Herbie Hancock – a very different album than his previous sets for the label – in that it features a slightly larger group, and a sound that really points the way towards his directions in the 70s! There's a slightly ambitious feel to some of these cuts – not in a way that's over-arranged, but just a new sort of thinking for Herbie's kind of groove – a mode that's partially informed by the seriousness of 60s jazz soundtracks, but which also has the beginnings of some more righteous modes of expression too. Players are all great – and include Joe Henderson on tenor and flute, Johnny Coles on flugelhorn, Garnett Brown on trombone, Hubert Laws on flute, Jerome Richardson on bass clarinet, Buster Williams on bass, and Tootie Heath on drums. Herbie plays both acoustic and electric piano – using the latter here in one of his first recordings on the instrument – and titles include "Firewater", "I Have A Dream", "The Prisoner", and "He Who Lives In Fear".

Bosko PetrovicOriginal Album Collection Vol 1 (Zeleno Raspolozenje/Blue Sunset/Misterij Bluesa/Green Lobster Dream/Stabilisation Blues/BPC Moods) (6CD set ... CD
Jugoton/Croatia (Croatia), 1970s/1980s. New Copy 6CD ... $16.99
A host of recordings with titles you can't pronounce – but served up with a universally appealing jazz sound, thanks to the mighty vibes of Bosko Petrovic! The musician is one of the coolest players who ever worked behind the Iron Curtain – a jazz vibist in Croatia, but one whose music touched other European scenes – and also provided a great welcome for American players who worked in Yugoslavia a the time – including trumpeter Clark Terry, who's the co-star on one of these albums! The package brings together six full albums from Petrovic – most of which feature his larger group material with his BP Convention ensemble – a project that takes off beautifully from some of the cool, creative big band work the MPS label was doing at the start of the 70s. Bosko had a hand in some of those records, but really takes the music to great new directions here – on the full albums Zeleno Raspolozenje, Blue Sunset, Misterij Bluesa, Green Lobster Dream, Stabilisation Blues, and BPC Moods. All records come in tiny LP-styled replicas of their original covers – and the set is a hell of a deal at this price! CD

✨✧ VariousBest Of Rare Mod – 60 Prime Cuts Of 60s Underground Rhythm N Blues, Psych & Soul (3CD set) ... CD
Acid Jazz (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 3CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Genius work from the British scene of the 60s – a big box of rare tracks from that first mod movement in the UK – a time when the young sound of London burst forth in ways of soul, psych, garage, and R&B! This 60-track package brings together some of the most stunning tracks from the Rare Mod CD series – and as with that great run, this album features a fair bit of material that was either not released at the time, or which was very obscure even then – and as such, it goes way way farther than some of the major label collections that sometimes fly the mod banner, but usually just feature overplayed oldies! That's not the case with this one, as you'll find a huge amount of music here to discover – even if you bough mod singles back in the day, or have been plumbing other compilations over the years. Titles include "In The Midnight Hour" by Kenny Bernard & the Wranglers, "I Like What I'm Trying To Do" by Waywood Ellis, "I'm A Man" by The Top Six, "Keep Me Covered" by The Frays, "New Directions" by Dave Anthony's Moods, "Sing A Simple Song" by The Ossie Layne Show, "Two Can Make It Together" by Tony & Tandy, "Hello Blinkers" by The Blinkers, "Holding On" by Geno Washington, "Marching Off To War" by Richard Kent Style, "Wait For Me" by Fleur De Lys, "Soul Sister Brown Sugar" by Jimmy James & The Vagabonds, "Road Runner" by Syd's Crowd, "See That My Grave Is Kept Clean" by The Clique, "So Bad" by Steve Howe, and "This Old Heart Of Mine" by Donnie Elbert.

✨✧ Tom BrowneLove Approach ... CD
GRP/Sony (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An early gem from trumpeter Tom Browne – a set that not only firmly established Browne as one of the best young players of his generation, but which also paved the way for a whole new direction for jazz funk in the 80s! The record is a perfect example of how great the mix of R&B rhythms and jazz fusion instrumentation could be – groovy enough to capture a whole new audience from the soul market, but still more than respectful of the solo talents of the leader – but all without any attempt at smooth jazz commercialism at all! There's some great hard funk moments on the set – and Browne approaches the music in a way that's nicely different than Donald Byrd or Freddie Hubbard, two older players who first helped forge this sound in the 70s – and whose path Tom's clearly taking, but with new directions of his own. There's almost more of a street-worthy vibe to the set – quite a surprise if you only know later records on the GRP label – and the arrangements are by Tom, Weldon Irvine, Lesette Wilson, and Dave Grusin. Titles include the funky classic "Funkin' For Jamaica", plus "Her Silent Smile", "Moon Rise", "Nocturne", "Forever More", and "Weak In The Knees". CD
(Part of the great AOR City series from Japan!)

✨✧ BlackbyrdsAction/Better Days ... CD
BGP (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Two of the later Blackbyrds LPs on one CD! Action is a great little sleeper from the Blackbyrds – a record that never gets as much due as their earlier records that have a hard funky feel, but offer instead a tasty batch of smoother jazz funk numbers that show the group still continuing to grow. Donald Byrd's still at the production helm – and the band's got a nice spacey sound that almost reflects directions that other funk groups, like Kool & The Gang, were taking at the time. The best case of this is the massive cut "Mysterious Vibes", a slow jazzy stepper that was sampled to great fame a few years back – but you can also hear it on the cuts "Supernatural Feeling", "Soft & Easy", and "Dreaming About You". Better Days is filled with sweet warm grooves from the mighty Blackbyrds – a set that has George Duke working with the group, giving them some of the electric vibe of his own great work! The sound is less sharply funky than the early days of the group, but still mighty nice – and titles include "Do It Girl", "Love Don't Strike Twice", "What We Have Is Right", and "What's On Your Mind".

✨✧ Lee KonitzFigure & Spirit (with bonus track) ... CD
Progressive, 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A subtle 70s gem from the great Lee Konitz – a record that almost returns to the spare, simple, sublime sound of his best 50s recordings – but with a few more modern edges too! Lee's alto is superb throughout – every bit as sharp as when we love it the best – and the tenor of Ted Brown provides wonderful counterpoint at many spots, moving with Lee a bit like Warne Marsh – but with a sound that shows all the lessons that both players have learned over the years. Rhythm is from a well-chosen trio of younger players, who always seem expectant to new directions – Albert Dailey on piano, Rufus Reid on bass, and Joe Chambers on drums – and titles include "Figure & Spirit", "Dream Stepper", "Smog Eyes", "April", "Without You Man", and "Dig It". CD features the bonus track "Feather Bed". CD

Don EllisAutumn/Shock Treatment ... CD
BGO (UK), 1968. New Copy 2 CDs ... $15.99
Two late 60s classics from trumpet legend Don Ellis – back to back in a single set! Autumn is an album of explosive power and imagination from Don Ellis – a set that shows him very firmly shaking off the more academic mode of earlier years, and heading into hipper, more youth-oriented directions! The group's still a bit band on most numbers – but it's one with a lean, well-crafted sound that's not really big band jazz, and which also features some elements of later soundtrack scoring. Players on the date are all great – and include Frank Strozier, John Klemmer, and Ira Schulman on saxes – plus Pete Robinson on clavinet, piano, and electric piano! The set begins with the beautiful extended "Variations For Trumpet" – a suite-type number that has plenty of great colors from Ellis, plus loads of other horn work too. Other titles include "Indian Lady", "Pussy Wiggle Stomp", "Scratt & Fluggs", and "Child Of Ecstasy". Shock Treatment is one of the first really funky records from Don Ellis! Ellis was an emerging California trumpeter/composer who'd noodled around with some modern big band work in the mid 60s – but this hip 1968 session has him adding in elements like clavinet, Fender Rhodes, sitar, timbales, vibes, percussion, and even a spot of vocals to change the groove to a more mod and swinging one. Titles include "Mercy Mabye Mercy", "New Kind Of Country", "Zim", "Star Children", "Opus 5", "Rasty", "The Tihai", and "Milo's Theme". Plus, the CD also includes some bonus tracks not on the original album! CD

JJ JohnsonJ Is For Jazz ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1956. Used ... $8.99
Nicely sharp sounds from the great JJ Johnson – a set that has the trombonist really honing his edge on a host of tight, short tracks – with a vibe that almost recalls his initial bop recordings on Blue Note and Prestige! The style here is a bit more sophisticated – definitely with an ear towards the modern directions that JJ was exploring in the 50s – but the sound is also nicely spontaneous, with more focus on improvisation between group members than larger arrangements – quite nice, given that the group features excellent tenor from Bobby Jaspar on tenor – and either Tommy Flanagan or Hank Jones on piano, Percy Heath or Wilbur Little on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums. Tracks are short, and titles include "Overdrive", "Cube Steak", "Chasin The Bird", and "Solar". CD

Beach BoysBeach Boys 1967 – Sunshine Tomorrow (Wild Honey stereo/Smiley Smile sessions/live unreleased tracks) ... CD
Capitol, 1967. New Copy 2CD ... $13.99 21.99
An amazing treasure for fans of the Beach Boys during their highest moment of genius – a huge batch of unreleased tracks from their important year of 1967 – plus the rare stereo mix of Wild Honey! We love the Wild Honey album – a back-to-basics album of sorts – shorter, catchier songs recorded by the group after the collapse of Smile – but a record that still has some really wonderful moments overall – and which shows that The Beach Boys would never be the same after Pet Sounds! There's a mix of older rock themes and new adult ones here – sung by a group who's really growing into their emotions, and approaching things from new directions than in the past. Heartbreak and happiness are both center stage here – often at the same time – on titles that include "Wild Honey", "Country Air", "I'd Love Just Once To See You", "Darlin", and "How She Boogalooed It". The 2CD set features 20 more amazing tracks from the sessions for the record – all very cool alternate songs or in progress compositions – of the sort that you've heard in the Smile or Pet Sounds collections – really showing Brian Wilson's genius in the studio. Plus, there's also 10 more songs from the Smiley Smile sessions – which are equally wonderful too – never issued before! Then, there's a full unissued live album – Lei'd In Hawaii - with a total of 13 tracks – then 5 more live tracks from Hawaii in 1967, and another 5 more unreleased tracks from an east coast tour late in the year! The total for the set is 30 unreleased studio tracks, 23 unreleased live tracks – and 11 more numbers from the Wild Honey album! CD

RodriguezComing From Reality (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Sussex/Light In The Attic, 1971. Used ... $6.99
An amazing second set from Sixto Rodriguez – recorded in the legendary Landsdowne Studios in London, with a groove that's a great extension from his debut! All of Rodriguez's best elements are in place here – his folksy guitar, personal lyrical style, and surprisingly biting approach to a variety of topics – and the London setting provides him with an even more sophisticated backdrop than before, one that creates a rich palette of sounds that takes the music in some really wonderful directions! There's a bit of strings at times, but most instrumentation is by a small combo – which includes Chris Spedding on guitar and Tony Carr on percussion – so that Rodriguez's vocals and guitar are really right up front in the mix, recorded with a brilliant balance between sharpness and compassion. Titles include "Climb Up On My Music", "Silver Words", "Heikki's Suburbia Bus Tour", "I Think Of You", "To Whom It May Concern", "Halfway Up The Stairs", and "Cause". CD

VariousTo The Outside Of Everything – A Story Of UK Post-Punk 1977 to 1981 (5CD set) ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 5CD ... $42.99
Great sounds from some of our favorite years of the British scene – those moments right after punk first exploded, and a generation of young English artists took off in so many different musical directions! The era's been labeled as post-punk, but what makes it really unique is that the label hardly does the music justice – as the time had such a rich array of sounds and styles, it would be impossible to sum of the vibe in just a few short words! There's definitely some punk elements in the music, but there's also electronic moments, sweeter songs, noisy bits, compressed prog inspirations, and even some occasional witty elements – with songwriting that's really stood the test of time over the years. There have been other collections of post-punk work over the years, but we've never seen a package like this – as the 5CD set features 111 tracks in all, packaged inside a book-style cover that's overflowing with notes and images – all with a track selection that includes lots of lost gems. In other words, even if you're like us, and already love this period, you'll still find plenty of greatness here – as the whole thing's balanced well enough to please both newcomers and longtime collectors. Includes work by Dif Juz, Glaxo Babies, The Homosexuals, Ultravox, Swell Maps, Clock DVD, Maximum Joy, Section 25, The Cravats, Native Hipsters, Josef K, Art Objects, The Passions, Big In Japan, Fischer-Z, Family Fodder, Girls At Our Best, Ludus, Boots For Dancing, In Camera, The Disco Zombies, Medium Medium, Alternative TV, The Nightingales, My Captains, Five Or Six, Steve Diggle, Dance Chapter, Fire Engines, Spoon Fazer, and many others!

✨✧ Gary McFarlandSoft Samba ... CD
Verve (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A dream of a record from Gary McFarland – lightly jazzy instrumentals with a warm bossa nova undercurrent! The style is incredible – a sweet blend of vibes, guitar, and even some light whistling – often also featuring wordless jazz vocals – scatting along with the groove in a melodic and lovely kind of way! The whole thing's incredibly charming, and even familiar tunes come across sounding quite different in McFarlands hands. Titles include "From Russia With Love", "More", "Emily", "La Vie En Rose", "The Love Goddess", and even a groovy take on "I Want To Hold Your Hand". For you true swingers, the cover includes directions for mixing a "Soft Samba Cocktail" (courtesy Spanish Sherry Institute)! CD

Ned DohenyNed Doheny (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Asylum/Warner (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... About May 25, 2018
One of the first great moments on record from Ned Doheny – part of a new wave of 70s singer/songwriters who were equally steeped in soul and jazz as they were the rock and blues of the previous decade! This set's maybe not as sweetly electric as some of Doheny's later work, but not much far away, either – and he really has a way of putting himself forward that avoids some of the cliches that were already coming into some of his generation – almost borrowing that sense of light that you'd hear in the music of Laura Nyro, but taking it into great directions of his own. There's also maybe a slightly more personal vibe here than in later years – pop perfection balanced with honesty, at that level we love in Todd Rundgren's first few solo records. The pure essence of that sounds can be heard in the sublime classic "I Know Sorrow" – but the whole thing's great, and other titles include "Fineline", "On & On", "Lashambeaux", "Postcards From Hollywood", "It Calls For You", and "Standfast".

Gilberto GilFe Na Festa ... CD
Facil (Brazil), 2010. New Copy ... $3.99
One of the freshest albums we've heard in years from Gilberto Gil – a set that seems to shake off some of the misdirections of recent records, and really get back the sharper style of his roots – while still also heading off into a new mode as well! There's a definite forro undercurrent here, especially in the rhythms – and Gil uses the style to strip things down, get a bit rootsy, and really bring up these great earthy grooves alongside his vocals – moving things towards the spirit of his late 70s music, even though things here sound totally different! Production is never too slick, and titles include "Marmundo", "Assim Sim", "Fe Na Festa", "Marla Minha", "Aprendi Com O Rei", "La Vem Ela", and "Sao Jao Carioca". CD

✨✧ Bobby HutchersonStick-Up! (Applause pressing) ... CD
Liberty/Applause, 1966. Used ... Out Of Stock
The sticks are up, and Bobby Hutcherson is at the top of his game – hitting a whole new groove here in this sublime session of modal numbers for Blue Note – a slightly warmer set than his more modern albums of the "new thing" years, and a great indication of the directions he'd take in the 70s! Bobby's vibes are set up wonderfully here in a quintet that includes Joe Henderson on tenor sax, McCoy Tyner on piano, Herbie Lewis on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums – all players who bring key elements to the groove. Tyner's got an obvious ear for the modal rhythms that Hutcherson's heading for; Higgins' drum work is freely lyrical in all the best ways; and Henderson's horn sharpens the edges of the tunes a bit, bringing in some nice darker sounds. The kickoff track is an amazing modal reading of Ornette's "Una Muy Bonita", and the rest are all Hutcherson originals, including "Summer Nights", "8/4 Beat", "Black Circle", "Verse", and "Blues Mind Matter".

✨✧ Rosemary ClooneyLove ... CD
Reprise, 1961. Used ... Out Of Stock
A really unusual album from Rosemary Clooney – recorded with lush backings from Nelson Riddle, in a style that gets past the lighter mode of earlier years! Clooney really opens up in Riddle's company – and hits a mature, adult mode that almost points the way towards directions Morgana King would take in later years. The tunes are all extremely well-chosen – and even the older numbers seem to have a more contemporary feel here, thanks to Riddle's unified arrangements throughout – an overall approach that avoids the "fast then slow then fast" mode that sometimes kept other Clooney albums from sounding like more serious vocal efforts. Titles include "Invitation", "I Wish It So", "Yours Sincerely", "Find The Way", "If I Forget You", "More Than You Know", and "Why Shouldn't I". CD

✨✧ VariousDust On The Nettles – A Journey Through The British Underground Folk Scene 1967 to 1972 (3CD set) ... CD
Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 3 CDs ... Out Of Stock
British folk music got really weird and wonderful at the end of the 60s – light years from the crew cut versions of The Kingston Trio, or the twangy modes of Bob Dylan wannabees – but also very different from the more rockish directions that American folk acts were taking at the time! If anything, the British artists showed an even deeper commitment to acoustic modes – and far more ancient ones than American groups had access too – a thousand year legacy of British Isles music, but reworked into an often-trippy style would find more famous iterations in groups from Fairport Convention through Current 93, and even in the Wicker Man soundtrack as well! Most of the music here is much more obscure than those references – groups that were big in the UK, but maybe didn't have as much of an impact over here during the period – which makes this 63 track box set a real treasure trove of discovery – filled with many tunes we'd never heard before, and put together in a very special way. Titles include "Black Girl" by Mary Anne, "Till The Morning Comes" by Dando Shaft, "Roses For Columbus" by Mark Frhy, "Love Is A Funny Thing" by Spyrogyra, "Come All You Travellers" by Wight, "Willow's Song" by Nagnet, "Cruious Crystals Of Unusual Purity" by Bridget St John, "Prisoners Victims Strangers Friends" by Paper Bubble, "Gabilan" by Duncan Browne, "Meeting By The Moonlight Mill" by Dry Heart, "Silence Returns" by Beau, "Me & My Kite" by Fuschia, "The Colour Is Blue" by Country Sun, "Welcome To The Citadel" by Marc Brierley, "Garden Song (demo)" by Bill Fay, and "Upon Reflection" by Heron.
