✨✧ Led ZeppelinSong Remains The Same ... CD
Swan Song/Atlantic, 1976. Used 2 CDs ... 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".

✨✧ Jimmy PageDeath Wish II ... LP
Swan Song/Atlantic, 1982. Very Good+ ... $14.99
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

✨✧ Led ZeppelinIn Through The Out Door ... LP
Swan Song/Atlantic, 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 "C", including the heavy inner sleeve, but missing the brown paper bag. Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ Led ZeppelinPresence ... CD
Swan Song/Atlantic, 1976. Used ... 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". CD

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.

✨✧ 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".

(Great Japanese pressing – with obi!)

✨✧ Esther PhillipsHere's Esther – Are You Ready/Good Black Is Hard To Crack ... CD
Mercury/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1979/1981. Used ... Out Of Stock
A pair of late albums from Esther Phillips for Mercury – capping off the 70s with Here's Esher – Are You Ready and picking up in '81 with Good Black Is Hard To Crack – back-to-back! Are You Ready is a sweet groover – done in a style that's much more club-oriented than before, but which we find ourselves liking quite a lot! Given that Esther had explored other modes quite thoroughly on other 60s and 70s sessions, the change here is actually a nice one – and the overall presentation is handled with a good sense of class and poise by Harvey Mason, who produced the session, and gives the record a sound that's hip enough to make it work. Esther sound especially great on the album's sweet stepper "Bedtime Stories", but other cuts are nice too – and titles include "Our Day Will Come", "Oo Oop Oo Oop", "Love Makes A Woman", "Mr Melody", and "I'll Close My Eyes". Titles include "Crazy", "Reaching Out For Love With Love", "Cry To Me", "Pull Yourself Together", "We've Got A Good Thing Going On", "Changin'" and more. Good Black Is Hard To Crack is her swan song for Mercury, and features 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 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. CD

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".

Perrey-KingsleyIn Sound From Way Out ... CD
Vanguard, 1966. Used ... $2.99
One of the moogiest records of all time – a legendary LP of "electronic pop music of the future" – sourced and claimed as an influence by everyone from Stereolab to the Beastie Boys! The legendary team of Gershon Kingsley and Jean-Jaques Perry are working here in early tape experiments that chop up quirky analogue electronics – and uses them to produce moogy songbits and space sounds, all with a really groovy beat! There's a simple magic here that has made the album hold up for years, and stand apart from a legion of later imitators with a clear, simple, and effective style that makes the best of all the bleeps and blonks in the set! Titles include "Unidentified Flying Object", "Spooks in Space", "Barnyard In Orbit", "Swan's Splashdown", and "Girl From Venus". A loving musical space party! CD

Steve YoungTo Satisfy You ... CD
Rounder/Ace (UK), 1981. New Copy ... $12.99 18.98
A different slice of music from Steve Young than you might know from his classic Seven Bridges Road – but a set that's equally great in its own sort of way! The album's from a time when Young was really stepping out of the shadows a bit – maybe feeling himself more as a singer, but also still a hell of a songwriter too – and while the album's got some country touches around the edges, there's also a more straightforward approach to the presentation of the music. Yet, since the whole thing was produced by Rounder Records, there's nothing slick or commercial at all – none of the too-polished modes that might have happened had Steve cut these songs with a major label – which means that the record really gets to the heart and clarity of the man's genius. Titles include "No Expectations", "The Contender", "To Satisfy You", "Top Of The World", "River & The Swan", "They Call It Love", and "Wild World". CD

VariousDigital Zandoli – Zouk & Synthetic Funk From The French West Indies ... LP
Heavenly Sweetness (France), 1980s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $26.99
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.

VariousRevolutionary Spirit – The Sound Of Liverpool 1976 to 1988 (5CD set) ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy 5CD ... $44.99
A huge look at the Liverpool scene in the UK – but one that doesn't focus on the generation of the Beatles and Brit Invasion groups – and instead brings some great attention to the city's contribution to the post-punk years and beyond! The package is tremendous – 100 songs in a huge booklet of notes – tracing an evolution from the late 70s years, when Liverpool was as creative and fervent of a scene as other North England territories, like Manchester and Sheffield – but also one that could quickly develop some tuneful aspects too, which no doubt helped the rest of the UK music scene of the 80s find a way to expand in some great global directions! Throughout the whole time covered here, there's a great tension between experimentation and commercial success – one that's covered beautifully by the many tracks in the collection, and also documented in the hefty notes within. There's far too many tracks here for us to list – but let us say that the package is overflowing with work by artists as diverse as Dalek I, The Wild Swans, China Crisis, Pink Industry, Care, Box Of Toys, Deaf School, Big In Japan, Pale Fountains, Icicle Works, Dead Or Alive, The Lotus Eaters, Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Mr Amir, Brenda & The Beach Balls, Jegsy Dodd & The Sons Of Harry Cross, The La's, Jactars, Magic Carpets, Barbel, The Walking Seeds, Thomas Lang, Ministry Of Love, Nightmares In Wax, OMD, The Planets, Spitfire Boys, Geisha Girls, Royal Family & The Poor, Public Disgrace, It's Immaterial, The Balcony, The Yachts, Teardrop Explodes, Original Mirrors, The Press Gang, Moderates, Egypt For Now, Those Naughty Lumps, Flock Of Seagulls, Freeze Frame, Echo & The Bunnymen, and many more!

✨✧ Nina SimoneNina Sings Duke Ellington/Nina Simone At Carnegie Hall ... CD
Colpix/Collectables, 1962/1963. Used ... Out Of Stock
A pair of Colpix classics from Nina Simone – back to back on a single CD! First up is Nina Sings Ellington – but as always, she makes whatever she sings all her own! The album's a bit straighter than later efforts – with large backings by Stu Phillips that also feature vocals by the Malcolm Dodds Singers – but Nina also conceived the whole thing herself, as an effort to bring a new level of spiritualism to Ellington's work. The result is a masterpiece – proof that even in her early years, Nina could completely transform anything she laid her hands on – and unlock a soulful depth that even the original recordings might have missed. Titles include "I Got It Bad", "Solitude", "The Gal From Joe's", "It Don't Mean A Thing", and "I Like The Sunrise". Nina At Carnegie Hall is 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
