Led ZeppelinCoda ... CD
Swan Song, 1982. Used ... $4.99
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". CD

Led ZeppelinIn Through The Out Door ... LP
Swan Song/Atlantic, 1979. Very Good ... $14.99
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 "E", including the heavy inner sleeve & brown outer sleeve.)

✨✧ Led ZeppelinPresence ... LP
Swan Song/Atlantic, 1976. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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
(Includes the printed inner sleeve.)

✨✧ John ColtraneSun Ship (180 gram version) ... LP
Impulse, 1965/1997. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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!)

Mercury, 1981. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Esther's swan song for Mercury, featuring tunes in a number of modes. Material ranges from a laid back early 80s soul reading of "Crazy", to more stripped down clubby soul on par with the previous album, to more stripped down modern groovers. Produced by Benny Golson. Other titles include "Reaching Out For Love With Love", "Cry To Me", "Pull Yourself Together", "We've Got A Good Thing Going On", "Changin'" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Miles DavisSomeday My Prince Will Come ... LP
Columbia, 1961. Used ... 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". LP, Vinyl record album
(70s pressing. Cover has some surface wear.)

Buck OwensBuck 'Em Vol 2 – The Music Of Buck Owens 1967 to 1975 ... CD
Capitol/Omnivore, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99 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".

Nina SimoneNina Simone At Carnegie Hall ... CD
Colpix/Warner (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... About April 26, 2017
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. The songs are incredibly spare, with an approach that's intimate and emotional – almost stunningly so, considering the size and scope of the venue that Nina was performing in. Features a 7 minute reading of "The Other Woman" and "Cotton Eyed Joe" – plus "Black Swan", "If You Knew", "Theme From Sayonara", and "Will I Find My Love Today". CD

T RexT Rex ... LP
Reprise, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 21.98
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Remastered 45th anniversary pressing – done with the original poster-sleeve cover!)

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.
