New Led ZeppelinIn Through The Out Door ... LP LP format
Swan Song/Atlantic, 1979. Very Good ... $12.99
Led Zeppelin's final album of the 70s! The band was conscious as ever of modern studio sounds by the this point – and they find a way to deliver their hard blues-inspired heavy rock with some new wave synth and other late 70s touches. It works pretty well, and with songs as great as "Fool In The Rain" and "All My Love" on the record, they really couldn't go wrong. Other titles include "In The Evening", "South Bound Suarez", "Carouselambra", and "I'm Gonna Crawl". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover variant "E". Includes the heavy inner sleeve. Cover has some light edgewear and a bit of pen on the back.)

New Led ZeppelinPresence ... LP LP format
Swan Song/Atlantic, 1976. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $16.99
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 wear and aging.)

New Led ZeppelinSong Remains The Same ... LP LP format
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. Cover has some wear.)

New John ColtraneSun Ship ... LP LP format
Impulse, 1965. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $19.99
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
(Rainbow label pressing. Cover has some wear.)

Miles DavisSomeday My Prince Will Come (180 gram vinyl – mono edition) ... LP LP format
Columbia, 1961. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
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".

UnwoundNo Energy (3LP set) ... LP LP format
Numero, 1995/1996. New Copy 3LP (reissue)... $26.99 39.98
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.

Julee CruiseFloating Into The Night (180 gram pressing) ... LP LP format
Warner, 1989. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 21.98
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

VariousBehind Closed Doors – Where Country Meets Soul ... CD CD format
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.

VariousCold Cold Heart – Where Country Meets Soul Vol 3 ... CD CD format
Kent (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... $14.99
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.

New VariousSweet Dreams – Where Country Meets Soul Vol 2 – 23 Exceptional Examples Of How Blurred The Line That Separates Country & Soul Music Can Be ... CD CD format
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Great sounds from a very special place – that magical meeting point where country meets soul – a spot that was crossed surprisingly often in the southern soul scene of the 60s and 70s! The set's a great follow-up to the excellent first volume – and really does a wonderful job of showing the way that a country ethos could work equally well in soul music – with results that will definitely have you re-thinking your ideas of cultural separation in the south. Much of the work is from that great late 60s/early 70s point when the country soul genre was really maturing – moving past the earlier moments of Ray Charles or Brook Benton, and using the style to express a new level of lyrical sophistication – especially in songs of love lost. Titles include "Sweet Music Man" by Millie Jackson, "Don't You Ever Get Tired" by Bettye Swann, "I Hate You" by Bobby Bland, "Statue Of A Fool" by David Ruffin, "Tennessee Waltz" by Otis Redding, "Bad News" by Clarence Carter, "Sunday Morning Coming Down" by Hank Ballard, "But You Know I Love You" by Sweet Inspirations, "Please Help Me I'm Falling" by William Bell, "Sometimes" by Facts Of Life, "I'll Release You" by Ted Taylor, and "All I Have To Offer" by Eddie James.
