Led ZeppelinSong Remains The Same ... LP
Swan Song/Atlantic, 1976. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $26.99
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
(Includes the booklet. Cover has an unglued bottom seam & some wear.)

✨✧ Led ZeppelinCoda ... LP
Swan Song, 1982. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $16.99
The title's an apt one – given that the record was the end of the tremendous run of records from Led Zeppelin – issued after the death of legendary drummer John Bomham – but the set's also way more than just an endpoint, as many of the tracks return to the group's beginning – and bring back unheard sounds from early 70s sessions! There's a nice criss-crossing of styles here – from the rawness of the earliest records, to the refined complexity of the mid 70s – and the album's way more than just an afterthought to the catalog – and is filled with great cuts that include the Bonham showpiece "Bonzo's Montreux", plus "We're Gonna Groove", "Poor Tom", "I Can't Quit You Baby". "Wearing And Tearing", and "Ozone Baby". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a promo stamp.)

✨✧ Led ZeppelinIn Through The Out Door ... LP
Swan Song/Atlantic, 1979. Near Mint- ... $16.99
Led Zeppelin's final album of the 70s – a record that really has them stretching out and trying on some new ideas, yet still holding onto all their genius in the process! Sure, the album's maybe not as iconic as the first few – but from the perspective of decades later, it's a killer – and still blows away just about all the competition – with that Plant/Page magic that still comes through brilliantly, no matter what the setting. There's a few unusual twists and turns – a bit of Latin here, a slight keyboard there – but overall the main focus is still on the lead duo, getting plenty of heavy drums to keep things moving. Titles include the hits "Fool In The Rain" and "All My Love" – plus "In The Evening", "South Bound Suarez", "Carouselambra", and "I'm Gonna Crawl". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover variant "D", including the heavy inner sleeve.)

✨✧ Jimmy PageDeath Wish II ... LP
Swan Song/Atlantic, 1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Bronson's back on the streets in this sequel to Death Wish – but fortunately, he's got Jimmy Page there to back him up! Page sings on the lead track, "Who's To Blame" – and the rest of them are mostly instrumentals, done with a pretty hard-ripping guitar sound that's actually pretty nice! Think of the album as a Led Zep instrumental set, with a slight bit of soundtrack funk – and you've almost got the whole picture. Titles include "Jam Sandwich", "City Sirens", "The Chase", "Big Band, Sax, & Violence", "Shadow In The City", and "Hotel Rats & Photostats". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ ClipseTil The Casket Drops ... LP
Columbia/Get On Down, 2009. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99 22.98
Malice & Pusha T back with The Neptunes on the bulk of Til The Casket Drops – recorded Columbi, after the Jive Records swan song/uncompromising masterpiece Hell Hath No Fury back in '06, and this one still head-and-shoulders above most major label hip hop LPs circa '09! The couple of concessions to street rap radio can be forgiven with album tracks that cut as deep as the ones here – with a couple produced by DJ Khalil, and guests including Kanye West, Yo Gotti, Cam'Ron, Ab Liva, Keri Hilson & Nicole Hurst. Titles include "Freedom", "Popular Demand (Popeyes) feat Cam'Ron & Pharrell, "Kinda Like A Big Deal" feat Kanye West, "Showing Out" feat Yo Gotti, "I'm Good" feat Pharrell, "Door Man", "Never Will It Stop" feat Ab Liva, "All Eyes On Me" feat Keri Hilson, "Counseling" feat Nicole Hurst, "Life Change" and more.

John ColtraneSun Ship (180 gram version) ... LP
Impulse, 1965/1997. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $21.99 22.98
Soaring work from the legendary John Coltrane Quartet – a session that was incredibly far-reaching for the time, and which originally was unissued until after the time of Coltrane's death! The record's got the group really pushing forward strongly – hitting a Love Supreme mode, but also showing even some of the sharper edges that John would explore with the group after this one – a beautiful swan song to the lineup of McCoy Tyner on piano, Jimmy Garrison on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums. Things soar with a hell of a lot of spirituality, yet never get too overindulgent to lose their groove – and titles include "Amen", "Dearly Beloved", "Ascent", "Attaining", and "Sun Ship". LP, Vinyl record album
(180-gram reissue version, with a sweet gatefold cover that replicates the original!)

Miles DavisSomeday My Prince Will Come ... LP
Columbia, 1961. Very Good ... $29.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

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

Colin SteeleDiving For Pearls – Jazz Interpretations Of The Pearlfishers Songbook ... CD
Marina (Germany), 2017. New Copy ... $16.99
A jazz record, but one with a pedigree in pop – given that the songs here are all instrumentals based on tunes penned by the excellent (and overlooked!) Pearlfishers group! The Pearlfishers original songs are completely sublime – almost a Brian Wilson mode for our generation, but much more personal too – a quality that makes them perfect for new jazz interpretations by trumpeter Colin Steele, who does a great of of playing the melodies in a muted mode, then soaring out with rich-voiced solos of his own! Other players in the quartet include Dave Milligan on piano, Calum Gourlay on bass, and Alyn Cosker on drums – and titles include "Snow On The Pines", "Everything Works Out", "We'll Get By", "The Bluebells", "The Umbrellas Of Shibuya", "Swan Dreams", and "You'll Never Steal My Spirit".

VariousTo Love Somebody – The Songs Of The Bee Gees 1966 to 1970 ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $13.99
Right from the start, the brothers Gibb were recognized as some of the most striking songwriters of their generation – a fact that's sometimes lost, due to the trio's later disco fame in the spotlight – which obscures their huge impact as songwriters from the early years! This set finally does justice to that legacy – and not only includes the rock and pop covers you might expect, but also a fair bit of soul tracks too – showing a remarkable appeal that the Bee Gees had early on for a soul audience – an influence that began long before the days in which they helped bring disco to the mainstream. There's some really wonderful tunes here – maybe less hits overall than in the usual Ace Records "songwriter" series – and the set features 24 tracks that include "To Love Somebody" by James Carr, "I've Gotta Get A Message To You" by Percy Sledge, "I Can't See Nobody" by Nina Simone, "Give A Hand Take A Hand" by The Staple Singers, "World" by Sharon Tandy, "Massachusetts" by Tommy Roe, "I Started A Joke" by Pat Kelly, "Spicks & Specks" by The Status Quo, "And The Sun Will Shine" by Paul Jones, "He's A Thief" by April Byron, "Town Of Tuxley Toymaker (part 1)" by Jon, "Morning Of My Life" by John Holt, "First Of May" by Jose Feliciano, "Words" by Bettye Swann, and "New York Mining Disaster 1941" by Velvett Fogg.

Nina SimoneNina Simone At Carnegie Hall ... CD
Colpix/Warner (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... $14.99
A hip set of live tracks from Nina Simone – very dark and moody, with backing by only a small combo that includes two guitars, bass, and drums by Montego Joe! Nina handles all the arrangements herself – with a quality that really shows her stepping forward from straight jazz, and finding that special, unique sound that really set her apart from all other singers of the 60s! The songs are incredibly spare, with an approach that's intimate and emotional – almost stunningly so, considering the size and scope of the venue – and titles include a 7 minute reading of "The Other Woman/Cotton Eyed Joe" – plus "Black Swan", "If You Knew", "Theme From Sayonara", and "Will I Find My Love Today".

T RexT Rex ... LP
Reprise, 1970. Sealed (reissue)... $14.99
One of the greatest moments ever from Marc Bolan and T Rex – a set that takes all the fantastic ideas they had swimming around in their heads, and focuses them down into some short, tight songs with a hell of a lot of punch! The record's got a mix of full-on fuzz and gentler acoustic moments – a vibe that's a bit like David Bowie on Hunky Dory, but a bit more sinister – and, no surprise, mainman Bowie producer Tony Visconti is at the studio helm – providing perfect direction for the whole project, and adding in just a bit of strings when needed. Bolan's never sounded better – and titles include "The Children Of Rarn", "Childe", "The Visit", "Time Of Love Is Now", "One Inch Rock", "Summer Deep", "Seagull Woman", "Suneye", "The Wizard", and the classic "Ride A Wild Swan".

VariousClassical Gassers – Pop Gems Inspired By The Great Composers ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $11.99 19.99
A really cool set of classic pop songs – and we mean that in more ways than one! The tracks here all borrow a tune from much older classical music compositions – but then turn the material into a springboard for a swinging set of 60s arrangements – music that moves between raw instrumentals to sweet girl group pop – with stops along the way for a bit of soul, garage, and other modes as well! In fact, some of these cuts are so successful with their classical themes, they've often come to be better-known than the originals – at least by folks like us, who were raised more on the sound of the radio than the symphony hall. And if you're worried about things being too sleepy, don't – as the package is really lively, and has all the best punch and sparkle of the Golden Age Of American Pop series from Ace – but maybe even more, given the weirdness of some of these tunes. Titles include "Sabre Dance" by Love Sculpture, "A Groovy Kind Of Love" by The Mindbenders, "Attack" by The Toys, "Asia Minor" by Kokomo, "Goodbye Cruel World" by James Darren, "Nut Rocker" by B Bumble & The Stingers, "Mountain Of Our Love" by Lesley Miller, "She Wears My Ring" by Roy Orbison, "Swan Lake" by The Cats, "My Hero" by Renee St Clair, "Stranger In Paradise" by The Galens, "Peter & The Wolf" by Harpers Bizarre, "Whiter Shade Of Pale" by Shorty Long, and "The Wedding" by Julie Rogers.

✨✧ VariousDigital Zandoli – Zouk & Synthetic Funk From The French West Indies ... LP
Heavenly Sweetness (France), 1980s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A cool collection of sounds when the music was really making a change in the French West Indies – especially in Guadeloupe, which was always trying to set itself apart from some of its Caribbean neighbors! The music here has all the electric touches you'd expect from the "digital" in the title – but the sound is still nice and warm overall – kind of an updating of older rhythms, maybe even a bit of biguine – but using both acoustic and electric drums, as well as a good deal of keyboards in the mix! The groove has an open, natural flow that's quite different from Haitian music or soca at the time – quite seductive in the way the songs progress – never trying too hard at all, but coming out with a sweet 80s funk sound in the end. The collection was put together by Diggers Digest – who did a great job of finding lesser-known gems – and titles include "Devenn" by Pierre Edouard Decimus, "Indiano" by Eddy La Viny, "Mande Moin On Lajan" by Group Nsi, "Vacance Union" by Raymon Pyrme and Jean Claude Cornely, "Nou Ke Sa Enmew" by Swanha Desvarieux, "Poutchi" by Zanma, "Biguine Inferno" by OREA, and "Mizik Nou" by Milton.

✨✧ Buck OwensBuck 'Em Vol 2 – The Music Of Buck Owens 1967 to 1975 ... CD
Capitol/Omnivore, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
An amazing run of music from the mighty Buck Owens – one of the few country music stars of his time who never made a mis-step at all, and instead gave us nearly two decades' worth of incredible records for Capitol! Some of the best cuts from that stretch are presented here, alongside a handful of rare numbers too – including 7 tracks never issued on CD, and 9 that have never been issued in the US – all as part of a 50-song collection that even includes liner notes from Buck himself! If you only think of Owens in terms of his later fame or stereotypes, you'll be plenty surprised when you dip into these gems – as the music is tight, sharp, witty – and some of the most perfectly-presented country music of the time. Titles include a number of live tracks – including versions of "Somewhere Between You & Me", "Las Vegas Lament", "Tall Dark Stranger", "I'll Still Be Waiting For You", "I've Got You On My Mind Again", and "I've Got A Tiger By The Tail" – plus studio cuts that include "Sweet Rosie Jones", "Happy Times Are Here Again", "41st Street Lonely Hearts Club", "Weekend Daddy", "Great Expectations", "Big Game Hunter", "Monster's Holiday", "Let The World Keep On A Turnin", and "Corn Likker" – plus an outtake from a rare duet with soul singer Bettye Swann, on "Today I Started Loving You Again".
