Led ZeppelinCoda ... LP
Swan Song, 1982. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $11.99
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. Back cover has minor staining.)

Led ZeppelinIn Through The Out Door ... LP
Swan Song/Atlantic, 1979. Very Good ... $11.99
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 "A", including the printed inner sleeve.)

Led ZeppelinPresence ... LP
Swan Song/Atlantic, 1976. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $16.99
Overlooked genius from Led Zeppelin – an album that was missed by many the first time around, because of it's tight focus and simplicity! For the set, the group step back just a bit from their more stylistically sprawling tendencies – almost as if they got some of the more ambitious ideas out of their system with Physical Graffiti, or simply wanted to get out there and kick some ass – a back to basics move, and one that sees some tremendous guitar work from Jimmy Page! The album still has 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
(Cover has light wear.)

Led ZeppelinSong Remains The Same ... LP
Swan Song/Atlantic, 1976. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99
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 light wear and a factory sticker in one corner.)

Jimmy PageDeath Wish II ... LP
Swan Song/Atlantic, 1982. Near Mint- ... $13.99
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

Dave Brubeck QuartetTheir Last Time Out – The Unreleased Live Concert – December 26, 1967 Pittsburgh, PA ... CD
Columbia, 1967. Used 2 CDs ... $6.99
The last-ever live performance of the legendary Dave Brubeck Quartet with Paul Desmond – recorded in 1967, but issued here for the first time ever! The group was the stuff of legend in the 50s and 60s – Dave's incredible approach to piano and time signatures, supported by amazing rhythm progressions from bassist Eugene Wright and drummer Joe Morello – topped by some completely sublime work on alto sax by the mighty Paul Desmond! Throughout the 60s, the group really expanded their sound wonderfully – through a set of richly exploratory albums for Columbia Records, taking their core approach into a wide range of new styles and formats that really made for some beautiful music. Here, they deliver a stellar swan song – working in a live performance that brings back a few classics, and also shows some of the new territory they'd taken too – all recorded beautifully, at a level that makes the record a perfect pairing with their studio albums for Columbia – almost as if the label had been holding back a gem after all these years. Titles include "For Drummers Only", "La Paloma Azul", "Three To Get Ready", "Someday My Prince Will Come", "I'm In A Dancing Mood", "Set My People Free", "Take Five", and "You Go To My Head". CD

John ColtraneSun Ship – The Complete Sessions ... CD
Impulse, 1965. Used 2CD ... $9.99
A hugely expanded version of this legendary album – one that features loads of unreleased tracks that show the whole thing coming together in the studio! The set's filled with 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". CD features complete takes of some tracks that were cut off on the original LP release, plus other versions that show a strong development of the music! CD

Clara RockmoreArt Of The Theremin ... CD
Delos, Mid 70s. Used ... $5.99
A pretty amazing and surprisingly lovely LP from theremin player Clara Rockmore – accompanied on piano by Nadia Reisenberg – and a record that really strips away the sci fi futurist stereotype of the theremin! The material was recorded in the mid 70s, an LP "presented by" Shirleigh and Robert Moog, and featuring the personal endorsement of Leon Theremin among the information on the gatefold sleeve, and Clara really earns the accolades and presentation of these electronic pioneers. She ekes haunting, ethereal and beautiful sounds from the instrument, with a bit of drama and an almost classical feel, but stripped to the dramatic essence rather than grand and epic. Wonderful! Includes takes on Rachmaninoff, Stravinsky and Tschaikowsky among others, with "Vocalise", "Song Of Grusia", "The Swan", "Chant Du Memestrel" and more. CD

✨✧ Cibo MattoStereo Type A (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Warner, 1999. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Never a stereotype, Cibo Matto was a pretty trailblazing act from the start – and their underrated late 90s swan song (for quite a while) Stereo Type A is a major reminder of that – blending genres and breaking barriers as strongly as ever! It's a brilliant mix of styles, from leftfield hip hop and breezy electronics to breezy bossa pop, Stereolab-esque space age sounds and beyond. Guest list includes Sean Lennon and Caetano Veloso (Cibo Matto's love of Brazilian music is clear and true) and titles includes "Working For Vacation", "Spoon", "Flowers", "Moonchild", "Sci-Fi Wasabi", "Clouds", "Speechless", "Blue Train", "King Of Silence", "Backseat", "Sotne", "Mortming", "Sunday" (Parts 1 & 2) and more.

✨✧ Miles DavisSomeday My Prince Will Come ... LP
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".

✨✧ FeeliesTime For A Witness (with download) ... LP
A&M, 1991. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A brilliant later album from The Feelies – ultimately something of a swan song, serving as what many thought would be their final album! Time For Witness shows The Feelies as a band, much to their credit, assured enough in their legacy as avant rock innovators to be able to deliver the goods with a bit of subtlety – with layered guitar interplay and a sneaky melodic sensibility that's layered in a way that you hear something new years later. We've loved this underrated set for A&M for a couple decades and STILL feel like we learning from it! Includes "Waiting", "Time For A Witness", "Sooner Or Later", "Decide", "For Now", "What She Said", a cool cover of The Stooges classic "Real Cool Time" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes download.)

Buck OwensBuck 'Em Vol 2 – The Music Of Buck Owens 1967 to 1975 ... CD
Capitol/Omnivore, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $24.99 26.98
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".

✨✧ VariousClassical Gassers – Pop Gems Inspired By The Great Composers ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $15.99 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 ... CD
Heavenly Sweetness (France), 1980s. New Copy ... $18.99
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.

✨✧ VariousCameo Parkway Story 1957 to 1967 – Original Master Recordings (4CD box set) ... CD
Abkco, Late 50s/1960s. Used 4CDs ... Out Of Stock
An incredible treasure trove of music – 4CDs worth of material from the legendary Philly Cameo and Parkway labels, most of which has never been officially reissued before! The package is way way more than just a simple "best of" that features the label's hits – as the set features a total of 115 songs in all, and features an incredible blend of rock, soul, doo wop, instrumental, and novelty tracks! The notes offer track-by-track details on each number – listing recording dates, single numbers, and more – and the booklet also lists studio musicians for the sessions, and other important details about the label. And heck, the set's worth it alone for its version of "Wild Thing" by Senator Bobby – one of our favorite singles of all time – but it also includes rare work by Frankie Beverly & The Butlers, The Tymes, The Ivy League, The Delfonics, Mike Pedicin Quartet, The Cameos, The Orlons, Bobby Rydell, The Swans, The Dreamers, Lonnie Youngblood, Eddie Holman, Chris Bartley, Bobby Marchan, Terry Night, Ohio Express, The Five Stairsteps, and even Bob Seger!
