✨✧ Francois De RoubaixLes Grandes Gueules/Le Vieux Fusil ... CD
Universal (France), 1960s/1970s. Used ... $9.99
Another incredible set of mad, moody film music from Francois de Roubaix – some featuring vocals by Serge Reggiani. Roubaix is a pretty obscure name when you consider the hallowed halls of worshipped composers – but trust us, it's as likely due to his unique vision and lack of a huge crossover film to have attached to his oeuvre than any other reasons. You could tangentially connect his style to that of Morricone (wild, hissy percussive momentum) and more well known French composers (moody, quiet passages, rich accordian work) but it all comes through with a very unique feel. It runs from weird, sorta bluesy rags to a vaguely Western sound and beyond – these could play behind anything from a shootout to a burlesque show! The tunes are from the 1965's Les Grandes Gueule, 1968's Ho!, 1972's Les Caids, and 1975's Le Vieux Fusil – plus three previously unreleased bonus cuts. 24 tracks in all. Titles include "Jackie", "Le Revolver", "Alarme Et Sirene", "Clara Et Julien", "La Mort", "Benedictine", and lots of others. CD

Biff RoseBiff Rose Promo Box (Biff Rose/Half Live At The Bitter End) ... LP
Buddah, 1970. Sealed 2LP ... $11.99
An unusual package – a promo box that features both Biff Rose albums for Buddah! First up is the self-titled Biff Rose, beautifully somber work from Biff Rose – material that's quite a bit different than his more freewheeling records on Tetragrammatron, and a lot more serious than his later joke-filled live album on Buddah! This set's got a personal, dark sort of sound that's somewhere in the territory of Randy Newman – bits of strings lurking in the background behind Biff's fragile, personal vocals – filling in the spaces quietly, and with a nice sort of sadness that underscores the gentle wit and visionary views of the songs. Rose previously showed signs of songwriting this strong on his earlier records, but it really comes to the forefront here – with a sensitivity that's really amazing, and a personality that really sets the record apart from most of Biff's contemporaries. Arrangements are by Al Gorgoni and Michael Leonard – who really help to set the tone – and titles include "Love Song", "African Lullaby/Little Monk", "The Captain", "The Promise", "Diane", "All The Fondest Wishes", "I'll Walk Away", "Nothing To Gain", and "Passing Parade". Half Live At The Bitter End is a really striking live set from singer/songwriter Biff Rose – a real contrast to his better-known record on Tetragrammaton – thanks to a loose and free presentation of the material! Biff's talking here as much, if not more than, he's singing – and the audience at The Bitter End is clearly very much enjoying the whole experience – exploding with laughter at Biff's interjections, and really urging him onward to new tangents. Plus, there's clearly some editing done here – in a way that only further makes the whole thing seem a bit crazy – but in a good way, very Rose-esque! Titles include "Astrology", "I Get High On Resentment", "Well I'm Goin Downtown", "I'm Losing My Race Against Me", and "Me You & Jesus". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes promo insert, and both records are sealed! Lid is loose, and has some light staining in one corner.)

✨✧ Henry FranklinJune Night ... CD
Skipper Productions, 2012. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Killer contemporary work from bassist Henry Franklin – an artist who's every bit as hip today as he was back in the 70s! This smoking set is one of Henry's recent gems on his own label – a soulful, soaring session that really shows that his energy hasn't dimmed a bit – and a record that's done with an underground, indie vibe that really lives up to the rest of Franklin's rich legacy! Most tracks here have a strongly spiritual quality – stretching forth wonderfully with performances by a group that includes Franklin on bass, Theo Saunders on piano, Gilbert Castellanos on trumpet, Chuck Manning on tenor, and Ryan Porter on trombone – the last three of whom are horn players who really make Henry's musical vision sparkle. Dwight Trible provides guest vocals on the track "Queen Of Tangents", Mon David sings on "A Love Song For Midori" – and other instrumental tracks include "Neko", "Four By Five", "Thump", "The Purple Gazelle", and "My Daddy's Jazz".
