✨✧ Peven EverettSpeed Of Light ... CD
Studio Confessions, 2002. Used ... $15.99
Excellent work from Peven Everett – another one of his home-made underground soul CDs, issued by Peven himself as a big "F#$% You" to the major labels that have screwed around with him in the past! The CD is a brilliant mix of soul, jazz, house, and touches of Afro-centric rhythms – crafted in a swirling mix that dips back 30 years into the history of soul, yet still points the way towards a richly positive future – sounding a heck of a lot more "real" than just about anyone else we can think of on the market today, and showing Everett as a burgeoning soul genius – on a par with D'Angelo, Norman Harris, Donnie Hathway, and, dare we say it, Marvin Gaye. Tracks include "Testin Me", "Stroll By The River", "Run Around", "One More Time", "Puerto Rico", and "Your Letter". 13 tracks in all! CD
(Note that each of these is handmade by Peven – so that the items will have a self-produced, homemade look to them that differs from CD to CD – although the music is great, and that production makes these one of a kind items!)

Armand Van Helden's SampleslayaEnter The Meatmarket ... CD
Ruffhouse, 1998. Used ... $1.99
The speed garage producer slums for a minute and puts together a double album of looped beats and vocal bits off a handful of different hip hop records, using common samples and well known hits. Nothing special, but it's guaranteed to move the crowd, kind of like some of the stuff Nervous was putting out around the same time. Includes "Pushem' Up", "Hot Butter", "Blakpeoplez", "Crooklyn Anthem", "Word Up Doc", "Reservoir Dogs", "6 Minutes Of Funk" and "Bounce". 14 tracks in all. CD

David BowieLow (remastered) ... CD
RCA/Virgin, 1977. Used ... $4.99
The Thin White Duke turns to the east – and gets a whole new sound with help from Brian Eno! The album is an amazing departure from some of David Bowie's previous work – a set that's sparer, more spacious, and which is often instrumental – quite a statement, given Bowie's reputation as a songwriter at the time! It's almost like Bowie's shaking off all the confused stardom of the previous parts of the 70s – and is stepping forward as a new being from a new space – cleaner, leaner, and simpler than before – but hardly evacuated of soul at all, certainly not as much as you might guess from the Man Who Fell To Earth image on the cover. Titles include "Speed Of Life", "Be My Wife", "A New Career In A New Town", "Warsawza", "Art Decade", "Weeping Wall", and "Sound & Vision". CD

Nico FidencoLa Ragazzina ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1974. Used ... $29.99
A sweet little score from Italian composer Nico Fidenco – best known round these parts for his sultry work for some of the 70s Emmanuelle films, sounding equally groovy on this more obscure album from the time! There's a light groove throughout the album – sometimes a slinky Euro sex sort of vibe, other times a much more pronounced approach to funk – with a mix of electric and acoustic elements that includes vibes, keyboards, flute, piano, and other great touches – all recorded with the spaciousness and care you'd expect from the generation. Titles include "La Ragazzina", "Speed", "Monica's Love", "Sandra's Dream", "Monica's Mirror", "Sandra", "Motor Ship", "Duello In 3/4", "Sandra In Love", and "Monica's Flight". CD

Gil Scott-HeronFree Will ... CD
Flying Dutchman/RCA, Early 70s. Used ... $7.99
A really tremendous album from the legendary Gil Scott-Heron – and a set that stands as one of his greatest statements from the 70s! The record is a wonderful example of Gil's work in two different styles – sweet mellow jazzy soul, and harder heavier protest poetry – the latter from his roots as a writer in touch with the streets, and the former part of a brilliant new direction that he was taking on the Flying Dutchman label. Side one features classic jazzy tracks recorded with Brian Jackson – like "Free Will", "The Middle Of Your Days", "Speed Kills", and "Did You Hear What They Said?". Side two moves over to a much sparer sound – and has Gil reciting some of his poetry with very heavy percussion, and a very righteous approach. The wisdom and knowledge of those pieces is a perfect example of the kinds of issues that were haunting black America in the early 70s – especially on the tracks "No Knock", "The King Alfred Plan", and "Sex Education: Ghetto Style".

Alan SilvestriChips Season 2 – 1978/1979 ... CD
Film Score Monthly, 1978/1979. Used ... $18.99
Ponch! John! Come back – all is forgiven! We've always remembered Chips as one of the clunkier cop shows of the late 70s – but this sweet little soundtrack completely redeems the show – a set of funky numbers penned by Alan Silvestri, all with an upbeat, clubby sort of groove! The music's right up there with that sweet 70 stretch when cop/crime modes shifted from jazz and funk to a more disco-oriented style – an uptempo groove that was perfect for the high speed action of the motorcycle cops on the show, but which also stands beautifully here on its own – in longer renditions than were ever used on TV, often with some really cool keyboard parts in the mix. The set features almost 80 minutes of music, plus great notes too – and titles include "Supercycle", "Return Of The Turks", "Disaster Squad", "Neighborhood Watch", "High Flyer", and "High Explosive".

VariousCinecocktail 2 – The Second Chance (with bonus remix CD) ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1960s/1970s. Used 2 CDs ... $24.99
Quite an unusual little collection of Italian soundtrack grooves – one that goes for the "whole picture" of the listening experience, in order to create a mini-movie in sound! Things start out spare and jazzy – with a flavor that's like some of the best Italian jazz scores of the early 60s, but a bit more contemporary – with standout lead lines on piano, trumpet, saxophone, and organ – all to set a very groovy mood at the start. As the collection moves on, things get a bit more upbeat and funky – hitting a more familiar Italian 70s mode, which really picks up speed near the end of the set! The package is a great companion to the first volume, but offers a very different sound overall – kind of a history of Italian soundtrack grooves in 21 tracks – over 70 minutes of music, packaged in a very nice tri-fold cover! A good number of the titles are in versions that have never appeared elsewhere before – and titles include "Satanic (seq 20)" bu Roberto Pregadio & Romano Mussolini, "La Ragazza Dalle Mani Di Corallo (seq 1)" by Roberto Pregadio, "Diamond Trumpet" by Francesco De Masi, "Kriminal (seq 28)" by Roberto Pregadio & Romano Mussolini, "Yeti" by Sante Maria Romitelli, "Funky Disco Soul" by Sante Maria Romitelli, "Amore All'Arrabbiata (seq 1)" by Roberto Pregadio, "Sliding Crime" by Gudio & Maurizio De Angelis, "Tic Nervoso (inst)" by Berto Pisano, "Gangster Story" by Berto Pisano, and "L'Isola Delle Svedesi (seq 1)" by Roberto Pregadio. And if that's not enough, the whole thing also offers a bonus disc of 6 more jazzy remixes by Francesco Santucci – versions of "Diamond Trumpet", "Sliding Crime", "Yeti", "Fay", and "Gangster Story".

✨✧ VariousElaste Vol 2 – Space Disco Compiled & Mixed By Tom Wieland ... CD
Compost (Germany), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Plenty of space disco here – that highly electric variety that currently plays big with an underground market, mostly pulled from rare American and European recordings of the late 70s and early 80s! Although electric, the tunes are still quite soulful – never that too-cold approach to club electronics, and more in a style that mixes warmer club rhythms with some sweet moogy touches or hip keyboard lines – balancing beautifully between these different modes with a spaced-out sound that's totally great! A few numbers get slightly cold, but never too much so – and the set includes a few contemporary numbers that sit alongside the old tracks nicely. Titles include "The Speed Of Sound" by Alan Hawkshaw, "Star Trek" by Vulcans, "Blow You Out Tonight" by Hippolytes, "Take Time" by Jagg, "Rebel On The Run (rmx)" by Selection, "Sundance" by Curt Cress, "Other Side Of Heaven" by Zodiac, "Don't Stay Till Breakfast" by Stroer, "Elaste" by Panoptikum, and "Feeling Love" by Leb Harmony.

✨✧ Wynton MarsalisCiti Movement ... CD
Columbia, 1993. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A nice little take on the "city symphony" mode that was big in American music a few decades back – served up by the Wynton Marsalis Septet of the early 90s, with decidedly modern touches! The double-length album's a three-tiered affair – with part one standing out as Wynton's extended "Cityscape" – a tribute to New York, done in styles that range from mellow and contemplative, to more hustling and bustling, in true speed of the city. Next up is another suite of tracks titled "Transatlantic Echoes" – work that's still jazz-based, but with a nod to African roots in some of the percussion and phrasing. Last up is "Some Present Moments Of The Future" – the final suite of the album, and one that almost echoes some of the rootsier modes explored by Wynton in his southern trilogy of a few years before. Players include Wynton on trumpet, Todd Williams on tenor and soprano sax, Wes Anderson on alto, Wycliffe Gordon on trombone, Reginald Veal on bass, Herlin Riley on drums, and Eric Reed on piano – and the album also features some guest tenor from Herb Harris and a bit of piano by Marthaniel Roberts.

✨✧ Phineas NewbornWorld Of Piano ... CD
Contemporary/OJC, 1961. Used ... Out Of Stock
Maybe not a "world" of piano, but a real classic from Phineas Newborn – a record that marks a harder, more soulful sound than some of his 50s work – shaking free from some of his flowery touches on the keys, and digging much deeper into the groove of his Memphis roots! The sound here is really tremendous – boldly leaping forth from the keys with a strength that's really surprising – but still sensitive enough to slide in a few more contemplative notes when the moment calls – sometimes while Newborn is still racing down the keys at breakneck speed! Rhythm on both sides is great – with Paul Chambers & Philly Joe Jones on side one, and Sam Jones and Louis Hayes on side two – and titles include "Cheryl", "Manteca", "Oleo", "Daahoud", "Cabu", and "For Carl".

Tex RitterHigh Noon (4CD set) ... CD
Capitol/Bear Family (Germany), Late 40s/Early 50s. Used 4CDs ... $49.99
A massive amount of work from a time when Tex Ritter was at the top of his game – star of stage and radio, and also an important force on the rising west coast country scene too! The package features a total of 111 recordings, 19 never issued – all recorded for Capitol when the label was doing an amazing job with material like this. Tex gets lots of great help on the sides, too – instrumentation that includes contributions from Merle Travis, Speedy West, Cliffie Stone, Harold Hensley, and even arranger Les Baxter. Comes with a big booklet of notes and images – in the usual great Bear Family style! CD

Armando TrovajoliIl Profeta/La Matriarca ... CD
GDM/Cinedelic (Italy), 1968. Used ... $14.99
2 of the grooviest soundtracks ever recorded by this Italian genius! For the score to the mod 60s film Il Profeta, Trovajoli adds in some great elements like twanging guitars, trippy sitar, and hammond organ – all of which groove along in kind of a "go go" mode on the set's best numbers, laying out a vision of swinging Italy that really makes us wish we were there! Titles include "Il Profeta", "Abbiamo Capito", and "Topo Di Campagna", all done in a number of versions, making for a total of 16 cuts in all! La Matriarca is even better – built around one lovely little melody, similar to Francis Lai's legendary A Man & A Woman soundtrack! The tune is totally compelling, and is played in a variety of speeds and settings – on organ, electric harpsichord, and piano – all with jaunty little rhythms, and a slightly bossa, slightly Frenchy sound to it. Really wonderful, and the kind of ditty you'll be humming for weeks after you listen to it! There's 9 tracks in all – including "Bossa Nova Remix", "Piano Solo", "Slow Take", "Main Titles", and "Dream Version". 25 cuts in all – with both soundtracks on the CD! CD
