Led ZeppelinCoda ... LP
Swan Song, 1982. Very Good Gatefold ... $16.99
The end of the stairway for Led Zeppelin! A couple of bluesy covers, a strong folk-styled original – and some tried-and-true Zeppelin stormers – on a fairly succinct final album. Early on are a couple of comparatively meditative numbers, and album builds to an exciting, hard-rocking end. Includes "We're Gonna Groove", "Poor Tom", "I Can't Quit You Baby", the Bonham showpiece "Bonzo's Montreaux", "Wearing And Tearing" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the heavy inner sleeve. Cover has a small peeled spot from sticker removal.)

✨✧ Led ZeppelinPresence ... LP
Swan Song/Atlantic, 1976. Very Good Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
Led Zeppelin walk back just a bit on their more stylistically sprawling tendencies for this one – and it's a fine set of hard-grooving rock from these uber-legends! We're not sure if they got some of the more ambitious ideas out of their system with Physical Graffiti, or if they just simply wanted to get out there and kick ass this time, but that's indeed what they do. It's still got some longer songs and complicated changes – this is Led Zeppelin, after all – and the lack of over-played classic rock radio fodder actually makes this one a better listen nowadays than the more iconic albums. Includes "Achilles Last Stand", "For Your Life", "Nobody's Fault But Mine", "Candy Store Rock", "Hots On For Nowhere" and "Tea For One". LP, Vinyl record album
(In the original embossed cover, including the printed inner sleeve. Cover has aging and light ring wear.)

✨✧ Led ZeppelinSong Remains The Same ... LP
Swan Song/Atlantic, 1976. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Arguably one of the greatest double-live albums of the classic rock generation – filled with extra long takes of Led Zep classics, most of which diverge very strongly from their studio versions! The real highlight here is the set's classic "Moby Dick", which features one of the greatest drum solos ever set to wax – but other tunes include "Rain Song", "Whole Lotta Love", "Stairway To Heaven", "No Quarter", and "Dazed & Confused". LP, Vinyl record album
(US pressing in the gatefold cover, including the booklet.)

Hard to go wrong with the insanity of this one! The record broke the bank of Genesis, but really allowed Peter Gabriel to trip out nicely as his swan song to the band. CD

✨✧ Miles DavisSomeday My Prince Will Come (Columbia Jazz Masterpieces) ... CD
Columbia, 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The tenor sax here makes the album a standout – as John Coltrane still works with Miles Davis on 2 tracks for the record, but Blue Note stalwart Hank Mobley joins in on the rest! The approach is similar to that of the classic Coltrane/Davis years – and in a way, the record's kind of a swan song to that period – one of the last studio session that Miles would cut in such an unabashedly sweet and lyrical way. And while Mobley's always better known for his harder-blown notes at Blue Note, he sounds totally great here next to Davis – really keeping up the gentle spirit and spaciousness of the record, and working with a gentleness that surpasses even his work on the legendary Soul Station album. Rhythm is by the trio of Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers, and Jimmy Cobb – and titles include Miles' classic version of "Someday My Prince Will Come", plus "Old Folks", "Teo", "Drad-Dog", and "Pfrancing". CD
(1990 Columbia Jazz Masterpieces pressing.)

✨✧ Horace TapscottTapscott Sessions Vol 5 ... LP
Nimbus, 1984. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the darker sessions in the Tapscott solo piano series for Nimbus – recorded a year after the previous volume, and with a tone and sense of power that's even stronger than before! There's an edgey quality to the work that's apparent from the very first note – and throughout the set, Tapscott pushes himself hard – really bringing out a sense of majesty from the tunes. Titles include "Blues In Pirouette", "Perfumes In The Night", "Hy Pocket's Swan Song", and "Stringeurisms". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ UnwoundNo Energy (3LP set) ... LP
Numero, 1995/1996. New Copy 3LP (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Numero's great Unwound excavation moves into the mid 90s for No Energy – featuring the underground rock heroes' timeless The Future Of What and Repetition LPs, plus rare singles and live recordings from the period – in a 3LP, 33 song box set! The albums were originally issued in fairly rapid succession, considering modern era release patterns – The Future Of What was released in the the spring of 1995 and Repetition followed barely a year later – and both LPs find the band hanging on to their invigorating post-punk inspired roots, though layering in more ambitious, noisy textures, without compromising the insisting songcraft. It hasn't aged a day! Comes with loads of photographs and a long, engrossing essay by band diarist David Wilcox. Tracks include "New Energy", "Demolished", "Natural Disasters", "Equally Stupid", "Vern's Answer To The Masses", "Disappoint", "Corpse Pose", "Lady Elect", "For Your Entertainment", "Next Exit", "Seen Not Heard", Swan", "Pardon My French", "Message Received", "Here Come The Dogs" and more.

Captain BeefheartIce Cream For Crow (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Virgin/4 Men With Beards, 1982. Very Good+ (reissue)... $14.99
The final recording from the good Captian and his last crew, and one of our favorites in his canon! Sideways rhythms collide with arthritic guitar parts in a remarkable gumbo topped off by Don Van Vliet's unique lyrical vision. A modern classic and a fittingly brilliant swansong to the recorded arts for Van Vliet! Includes "Ice Cream For Crow", "Semi Multi Coloured Caucasian", "Hey Garland, I Dig Your Tweed Coat", "The Past Sure Is Tense", "The Witch Doctor Life" and "81 Poop Hatch". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ike QuebecComplete Blue Note 45 Sessions Of Ike Quebec (Mosaic) ... CD
Blue Note/Mosaic, Late 50s/Early 60s. Used 2CDs ... $69.99
The "flipside" of Ike Quebec's legendary run of albums for Blue Note – a huge set of material recorded only as 45 singles during his same stretch at the label! Although Quebec's work as a soulful tenorist has been well documented and reissued over the years on albums like Blue & Sentimental and Heavy Soul, Ike also cut a fair number of singles aimed at the jukebox and radio crowds of the time – tunes that were more in the gutsy tenor and organ mode recorded by labels like Prestige or Chess, and which never made it onto any of the full-length sets for Blue Note! This great little package brings together all of Ike's 26 tracks recorded for 45s in the late 50s and early 60s – material that features organ on most numbers, played by either Ike Quebec, Sir Charles Thompson, or the enigmatic Edwin Swanston. Quebec's tone and phrasing is similar to his Blue Note LP work of the period, but there's also a more relaxed, and more punctuated feel to these recordings – one that's not as rough or raw as other jukebox tenor stars of the time, but which still steps out past the usual Blue Note poise, especially on the original numbers. Some tracks were briefly issued on the 80s collection With A Song In My Heart, and in a Mosaic box – but this is the first proper Blue Note album of the material. Titles include "Buzzard Lope", "Zonky", "Blue Monday", "Later For The Rock", "Dear John", "Blue Friday", "Ill Wind", "Mardis Gras", "Everything Happens To Me", "Me N Mabe", "All The Way", "Intermezzo", "All Of Me", and "Imagination". CD
(Box and book are in great shape!)

VariousBehind Closed Doors – Where Country Meets Soul ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99
A stellar collection of country soul by many of the greatest voices of any strain of soul music – Solomon Burke, Esther Phillips, Al Green, Bettye Swann, Percy Sledge, Little Milton, Candi Stanton and many more! A healthy portion of the material comes from the late 60s and early 70s – recordings that bring a depth of genuine soul to songs written or popularized by artists more often associated with the country charts. That said, it's soul music all the way – showing both the dexterity of these great soul singers and the adaptability of the such great songs. Includes "Detroit City" by Arthur Alexander, "He'll Have To Go" by Solomon Burke, "Take Time To Know Her" by Percy Sledge, "I Saw Me" by Esther Phillips, "Hangin' On" by Ann Peebles, "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" by Al Green, "Behind Closed Doors" by Little Milton, "Set Me Free" by Clarence Carter, "Yours, Love" by Joe Simon, "She Even Woke Me Up To Say Goodbye" by Brook Benton and more.

✨✧ Julee CruiseFloating Into The Night (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Warner, 1989. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A haunting debut from singer Julee Cruise – collaborating with filmmaker/songwriter/producer David Lynch and his Twin Peaks soundtrack composer Angelo Badalamenti – on one of the coolest vocal records of the period! This album was a bit underappreciated at the time, perhaps because its loose connection to Lynch's Twin Peaks and Blue Velvet was too big of a pop culture hurdle for critical minds to clear, but it absolutely deserves a reassessment. The mix of nostalgic 50s ballroom pop and ethereal modern dream pop is unique to say the least, and Julee's gorgeous vocals carry it over with style to spare. Wierd and beautiful – there's really nothing else like it! Titles include "Floating", "Falling", "I Remember", "Mysteries Of Love", "Into The Night", "I Float Alone", "The Swan", "The World Spins" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousCold Cold Heart – Where Country Meets Soul Vol 3 ... CD
Kent (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Southern soul galore – a wonderful range of tracks that are done in that best deep soul mode that borrowed heavily from country music – but also really transformed things to fit their own righteous needs! Make no mistake, the collection is all soul music all the way through – but the songs also echo some of the more heartbreaking themes and local needs you'd find in country music – and also use some isolated elements in the instrumentation and production too! The best way to think of the package is as a collection of southern soul, but one that shows a surprising lack of color barrier when it comes to musical styles – and as always with Ace/Kent, the notes and overall conception of the whole thing is really wonderful. 24 tracks in all – including "Easy Loving" by Bo Kirkland & Ruth Davis, "Big Blue Diamonds" by Little Johnny Taylor, "I Hang My Head & Cry" by Arthur Alexander, "True Love Travels On A Gravel Road" by Percy Sledge, "Touch Your Woman" by Margie Joseph, "Who Will The Next Fool Be" by Bobby Bland, "Stand By Your Man" by The Mirettes, "Till I Get It Right" by Bettye Swann, "Another Man's Woman Another Woman's Man" by Laura Lee, and "Jambalaya" by Ralph Soul Jackson.
