VariousPunk 45 – Extermination Nights In The Sixth City – Cleveland, Ohio Punk & The Decline Of The Midwest 1975 to 1982 ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $19.99 22.99
Cleveland was one of the coolest cities in the punk rock underground of the late 70s – and was proof that groundbreaking music didn't just come from New York or LA at the time! This batch of rare Cleveland material is arguably some of the hippest, most interesting work of the whole indie scene of the US during the period – really amazing stuff that doesn't just grab a few simple chords to play fast and loud, and which instead goes for the kind of unusual styles, sounds, and timings that were only used by the few most forward-thinking acts of the UK post-punk scene. Some of these groups are still working a very strong influence on musicians today – and for good reason too – and this volume may well be the best of the whole Punk 45 series on Soul Jazz – with great liner notes from Jon Savage on the scene and the songs! Titles include "Love Meant To Die" by Jazz Destroyers, "Street Where Nobody Lives" by The Pagans, "Tele K Killing" by The Broncs, "Splitter Splat" by Electric Eels, "Final Solution" by Pere Ubu, "No" by Human Switchboard, "A" by X-X, "Everything Near Me" by Styrene Money, "Life Stinks" by Rocket From The Tombs, and "Drano In Your Veins" by Poli Styrene Jass Band.

✨✧ VariousAfrican Pearls – Guinee 70 – The Discotheque Years ... CD
Syllart/African Pearls (UK), 1970s. Used 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Not the kind of discotheque grooves you might normally expect, but a really wonderful range of music from the 70s scene in Guinea – most of which would still be right at home on the dancefloor! The tunes are often upbeat, and rhythmic – but also filled with instrumental elements that vie equally for attention with the beats – off-kilter horns, jagged guitar parts, and other bits that ring out and really make these tunes great – all in ways that are very different than the familiar Afro Funk of the time, or any of the softer sounds in the contemporary world music generation. There's vocals on most of the tracks, but the instrumentation alone is what really grabs us – a hypnotic blend of unexpected elements that's plenty appealing, even if you don't understand the language or culture. But on that front, the set's also got a great booklet too – done like others in this cool Syllart series, with full notes in English and French, and a huge amount of vintage photos too! 25 titles in all – including "Apollo" by Horoya Band National, "En Tout Cas" by Sorsornet Rhythme, "Nazoki" by Sory Kandia Kouate & Keletigui, "Maliba" by Kaloum Star, "Sensenko" by Tele Jazz De Teleme, "Deny" by 22 Band Kankan, "Kononin" by Camayenne Softa, "Kana Sarakabo" by Bembeya Jazz National, "Kha Mu Lan Ma" by Super Boiro Band, and "Senero" by Syli Authentic.

Nascente (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A killer collection of funky grooves from France – heavy on sound library recordings from the 70s and a diverse batch of it at that – masterfully selected by Kid Loco from his personal collection! It features a number of tracks from the libraries of Tele Music & De Wolfe, with some same big names for lovers of period soundtracks and others that are completely fresh to our eyes and ears! Many are on CD for the first time, and sounds range from spacey synths, to wah wah guitar and sound effects, to straight up raw Euro funk and well beyond! Titles include "Gang Train" by Bernard Estardy, "OK Chicago" by Resonance, "Vertigo Leitmotiv" by Bernard Estardy, "Afridelic" by Manu Dibango, "Aubergine Time" by Bernard Lubat, "Indian Pop Bass" by Guy Pederson, "Course De Ten" by Alain Gorageur, "Pepper Box" by The Peppers and many more. 22 tracks in all.

✨✧ Erykah BaduNew Amerykah Part One (4th World War) ... LP
Motown, 2008. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $22.99 24.98
Badu is back with some of the deepest, funkiest and best music of her career – a mindblowing treatise for a New Amerykah – and what we'll consider an instant classic whether the world at large catches on or not! Erykah steps up this time with a set that balances the wilder impulses of her criminally underappreciated Worldwide Underground and more of a hip hop based, righteously grooving style – but still bursts with a freshness that's unrivaled to say the least. From free spirited soul, to sparse hip hop funk this record is both blunt and beautiful – with a slow-building emotional resonance that'll reach the most jaded souls. Modern soul music of the first order that gives us goosebumps from the first spin to the last beat! The album kicks off with Erykah riffing on and remixing Ramp's "American Promise" as an intro – and it just gets deeper from there. Producers/collaborators include Madlib, Sa-Ra, Karriem Riggins, James Poyser and ?uestlove. Amazing!!! Titles include "The Healer", "Me", "My People", "Soldier", "The Cell", "Twinkle", "Master Teacher", "The Hump" and "Telephone". The 9th Wonder produced single "Honey" is an unlisted bonus track.

John Barry/Elizabeth TaylorElizabeth Taylor In London ... LP
Colpix, 1963. Sealed ... $11.99
A weird little record from John Barry – the soundtrack to a 1963 television special recorded by Elizabeth Taylor at the height of her early popularity, and featuring Taylor reciting a variety of poems and speeches over music by Barry! There's a relatively high concept feel to the album – as Barry's backings are fairly string-laden and serious, penned to match the mood of Taylor's presentation of material written by William Wordsworth, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, William Pitt, Winston Churchill, and Queen Victoria. And although Taylor speaks on about half the record, the best tracks here are actually the instrumental ones – which have more of the depth of Barry's serious soundtrack work from the time, and manage to have their own sense of presence apart from the star quality of Liz on the set. Arrangements are by Johnnie Spence, and titles include "Elizabeth", "London Theme Jazz Waltz", "Queen Elizabeth At Tilbury", "Queen Victoria", "English Garden", "The Fire Of London", "Lovers & Browning", and "London At Dawn".

Jorge BenBig Ben ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1963. New Copy ... $13.99
Brilliant early work from Jorge Ben – a set that shouldn't be confused with the US album of the same name, and which is one of Jorge's first few gems of the 60s! The album's got Ben stepping out with a slightly jazzier feel than on his debut – a style that's still heavily steeped in the guitar-driven samba that first won him fame, but which also features a fair bit of bossa-influenced instrumentation too – bits of piano, flute, and horns that echo with some darker colors and tones that really add a lot to the tunes! The backings are never too full – nor too full of themselves – but this added level of sophistication really helps push Jorge into a range of fresh new sounds – and that's saying a lot, given how fresh his music from the time already was. Titles include "Agora Ninguem Chora Mais", "Telefone De Brotinho", "Patapatapata", "Na Bahia Tem", "Jorge Well", "Deixa O Menino Brincar", "Bom Mesmo E Amar", and "O Homem Que Matou O Homem Que Matou O Homem Mau".

Jorge BenForca Bruta ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $13.99
A fantastically soulful album from Jorge Ben – one of his greatest records ever, and a key part of Brazilian music in the 70s! The album marks an earthier shift for Jorge – a sound that's still rooted in the samba influences of the 60s, but which also takes on a bit more soul at the bottom – thanks to rhythmic contributions from Trio Mocoto, who work here famously to help Ben shape the overall feel of the set! There's still a bit of larger orchestrations at moments, but these are used sparingly just to sweeten the sound – leaving the main force of the music to come from Jorge's guitar, and the cuica, percussion, and tamborim of the trio. The vocals are wonderful too – slightly raspy, and with a bit more feeling than we ever remember Jorge having on record – sometimes a bit intimate, yet always with an undeniable presence throughout. One of those records that still sends chills up our spines, year after year – with tracks that include "Oba La Vem Ela", "Ze Canjica", "Pulo Pulo", "Apareceu Aparecida", "Terezinha", "Mulher Brasileira", "Forca Bruta", "O Telefone Tocou Novamente", and "Charles Junior".

✨✧ BT ExpressDo It (Til You're Satisfied) ... LP
Scepter, 1974. Very Good Gatefold ... $7.99
The monumental debut of BT Express – and an excellent funk album that often gets overlooked by fans of the music because of the band's bigger fame as a disco group! This first record has the combo grooving hard and instrumentally – in the mode of a tight blacksploitation soundtrack, with plenty of tight wah wah guitar riffing, conga beats, and funky flute and sax – topped off by just the right amount of strings to make the set soar even more! The album's best known for the title track "Do It (Til You're Satisfied)" – which was a big hit, but is still an excellent groover – and the set also includes loads of other great cuts too – like "Express", which was the original song that the created the JBs' response track "Monorail"; "This House is Smokin'", which has lots of funky descending horn bits; and other great tunes that include "Mental Telepathy", "If It Don't Turn You On", and "Do You Like It".

Earl Preston's Realms/Richmond Group/Michael AllenLiverpool Today – Where It All Began ... LP
Ember/Capitol, 1965. Sealed ... $24.99
A cool mid 60s set – recorded at the famous Cavern club in Liverpool – the famous home to The Beatles in their early days, and a host of other groovy groups from the Merseybeat scene! The sound here is definitely going for a Beatles vibe – particularly the early, rough-edged style the group had when first making waves in Liverpool, with a bit of a beat group vibe at times too. The set features performances by three different acts, tied together with added applause and announcements dubbed in after the music was recorded – underexposed rocking material from the UK scene of the 60s – by some Brit groups who got left behind on the invasion. Titles include "Cops & Robbers" and "That's Alright" by The Richmond Group; "I'll Be Doggone", "Missing You", and "Daddy Rolling Stone" by Earl Preston's Realms; and "Telegram", "Trains & Boats & Planes", and "I Can't Stand It" by Michael Allen.

EsquivelExploring New Sounds In Stereo ... LP
RCA, 1959. Very Good- ... $9.99
Juan Garcia's at his best here – gazing into a telescope on the cover, looking at the stars and contemplating his next musical direction. For that, the session leaps into a swinging hi-fi mode that brings the hi-ghest fi-delity to the band's nutty approach to arrangements. Esquivel's definitely swinging on a star here – especially on the cuts "My Blue Heaven", "Spellbound", "Whatchamacalit", "La Ronde", and "Bella Mora". Stereo version, too! LP, Vinyl record album

Gilberto GilSua Musica Sua Interpretacao ... 7-inch
Polysom (Brazil), 1963. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $13.99
Some of the earliest work ever from Gilberto Gil – music that's got much more of a bossa nova feel than his better-known recordings at the end of the 60s – but at a level that's still head and shoulders above most of his contemporaries! Gil's in the lead on vocals and acoustic guitar, and although the rhythms are often bossa, the performance is more heartfelt than usual for the genre – very expressive, with some especially blue tones on the more melancholy numbers – a quality that we never hear this strongly in Gilberto's later work. EP features four titles – "Serenata De Teleco Teco", "Maria Tristeza", "Vontade De Amar", and "Meu Luar Minhas Cancoes". 7-inch, Vinyl record

Gruppo Jazz MarcaMitteleuropa ... CD
Arision (UK), 1985. Used ... $2.99
An expanded effort from Gruppo Jazz Marca – one that stretches the Italian trio's lineup to a nine-piece unit with the addition of horns, vibes, and acoustic guitar! The sweetly lyrical sound of the trio is still very firmly in place here, but the added instruments take their sound to a whole new level – one that's filled with soaring trumpet, alto, and tenor sax solos – and which gets some especially nice rhythmic inflections from the guitar! There's a leaping, joyous quality to the music that's totally great – very much in keeping with the best 70s work from the Dire label, despite the mid 80s date of the session. And the record itself is a great example of the under-discovered rich legacy of Italian jazz of the 80s – finally getting its due these many years later! Titles include "Citta Di Frontiera", "Anamaria", "Three Dorico Time", "Blues Transfert", and "Dedalus". CD

Jimi's legendary live recordings for BBC radio and television – live studio sessions from 1967 to 1969 – remastered from BBC tapes and sounding incredible! Most of the tracks feature the trio of Hendrix, Noel Redding and Mitch Mitchell at their fiery best, on classics like "Foxey Lady", "Fire", "Love Or Confusion", "Purple Haze", "Hey Joe" and more, plus some great, loosier, bluesier performances, such as"Drivin South", "Hear My Train A Coming" and more. The few guest musician appearances are incredibly notable – Alexis Korner plays some slide guitar on "(I'm Your) Hoochie Choochie Man" – and Stevie Wonder plays drums (!!!) on "Jammin" and "I Was Made To Love Her".

Julie LondonCalendar Girl/Your Number Please ... CD
EMI/Capitol, 1956/1959. Used ... $12.99
2 great ones from Julie London – back to back on one CD! Calender Girl is one of Julie's wildest albums – and one of her sexiest too! The record has Julie running through the calender – singing a song a month, dedicated to January, February, March, and so on. The record's certainly one of her campier efforts – but in a great way – and it's further agumented by a great cover that has pinup images of Julie in a setting specific to each month! Titles include "June In January", "February Brings The Rain", "Melancholy March", "Memphis In June", and "Time For August". Your Number Please is great too! Julie couldn't look sexier on the cover – reclining in bed, on the telephone, breast falling out of her nightgown, with the suggestive title emblazoned across the top, almost like a phone sex ad! The music delivers on the suggestiveness – and features lush backings by Andre Previn, and an assortment of tunes made famous by male vocal greats of the 50s – including "A Stranger In Town", "Learnin The Blues", "One For My Baby", "It's A Blue World", "When I Fall In Love", and "The More I See You".

Barbara LynnComplete Atlantic Recordings ... CD
Atlantic/Real Gone, Late 60s. New Copy ... $17.99 18.98
The first-ever set to bring together all of Barbara Lynn's records for Atlantic – including her full album, a host of rare singles, and even one previously unissued track! Lynn's a real standout in 60s soul music – a singer with a style that's as deep and personal as any of the best southern soul artists of the time, but also a way of putting over a tune that's maybe even more forthright and confident – partly because Barbara composed a good deal of her own material! A good deal of the work was produced by Huey P Meux in Mississippi – with a vibe that's both different from more familiar southern styles of the time, and even some of Huey's later material in the 70s – one more quality that really makes the work sound quite fresh. A few more tracks were recorded by the great Spooner Oldham – who brings in some sweet Muscle Shoals elements – and titles include the unreleased "Soul Deep", plus "This Is The Thanks I Get", "Ring Telephone Ring", "Mix It Up Baby", "He Ain't Gonna Do right", "You Make Me So Hot", "It Ain't Good To Be Too Good", "You'd Better Quit It", "I'm A One Man Woman", "I'll Suffer", and "Unloved Unwanted Me".

101ersElgin Avenue Breakdown Revisited (colored vinyl) (2015 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Parlophone, 1976. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $36.99
A seminal collection of work from the earliest years of the London punk scene in the 70s – material by a pre-Clash group that famously featured Joe Strummer, working at a level that definitely prefaces all the greatness to come! The style here is certainly in the gritty, short, heavy punch of early UK punk – but there's also a compelling strand that traces back to early rock and roll as well – bits of 50s and 60s influence working through the music, showing just how deep of roots Strummer and the Clash would later draw from. There's less reggae influence than later, but it's still somewhere there in the mix – especially on the live tracks – and titles are a mix of studio recordings plus live cuts – with titles that include "Letsgetabitarockin", "Surf City", "Silent Telephone", "Keys To Your Heart", "Hideaway", "Sweety Of The St Moritz", "Keep Taking The Tablets", "Lonely Mother's Son", and "Shake Your Hips".

John Robinson Pierce/Max MathewsMusic From Mathematics – Played By IBM 7090 Computer & Digital To Sound Transducer ... LP
Decca, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $29.99
Really wonderful sounds from an early IBM computer – and a set that's quite different from both the academic and popular electronic albums of the 60s! You can really hear the programming at work here – the careful choices as to which sounds come out when, in a sequence that's more prescribed than played – which gives the whole thing an even spookier feel – as if there were no need for humans at all! As you might expect from the time, there's electronic renditions of "classics" like "Frere Jacques", "Joy To The World" and "Bicycle Built For Two", and then a bunch of newer compositions, primarily by scientists at the Bell Telephone Labs. 18 tracks in all, also includes "Variations On Timbre & Attack", "Theme & Variations" and "Noise Study".

Of all the knock-off Batman albums from the 60s, this one's the only legit soundtrack to the Batman TV show – and it's way way better than any other piece of vinyl with the Batman logo at the time!

Lalo SchifrinMan On A Swing/President's Analyst ... CD
Quartet (Spain), 1967/1974. New Copy ... $22.99
A pair of rare soundtracks by the great Lalo Schifrin – back to back on a single CD! First up is Man On A Swing – an obscure mid-70s murder mystery, given a great deal of depth and class from Schifrin's music – which is often surprisingly jazzy, despite the setting of the film – almost with the care of some excellent late night LA noir, and in the territory of Johnny Mandel for its sensitivity and color, yet still served up with all the Schifrin sense of swing. Titles include "Rosehaven Motel", "Maggie's Theme", "Evelyn Story", "Wills' Trance", and "Forest Finale". Even cooler is Lalo's amazing score for The President's Analyst – a totally groovy soundtrack that was literally our first introduction to his genius, back when we were kids! Schifrin's at his 60s best here – jazzy, groovy, playful, and able to step between so many wonderful styles – from the Brasil 66-ish vocals of "Hey Me", to the playful parody of military themes on other numbers, to some of the sexier tunes that show up as the plot moves on – almost Lalo's remaking of A&M modes to illustrate mainstream America in the late 60s. Titles include "Total Sound", "Hey Me", "The Long Walk", "The Nest", "Sidney's Flight", "Fast Boat To Moscow", "Telephone Trap", and "Sidney Plans Escape". CD

Gil Scott-HeronNew Black Poet – Small Talk At 125th & Lenox ... CD
Flying Dutchman/BGP, 1971. New Copy ... $11.99
Gil Scott-Heron's first album – and his angriest! Unlike some of Gil's other albums – which have a sweet jazzy vibe and a mix of mellow soul styles – this one's a lot rawer, and features Gil rapping loud over very heavy percussion backing. All the work is his own, and the album's a showcase for his brilliant protest poetry – the most famous example of which is included in "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised", which leads off the album with an especially righteous groove! The set's a key link in the African American musical tradition of the 20th century – and proof that the underground, while not always afforded a good place in the broadcast markets of the US, could always burst forth in the "narrowcast" medium of recorded music. A landmark album – one we like even better than the early work by the Last Poets – and great all the way through! Tracks include "Whitey On The Moon", "Who'll Pay Reparations On My Soul?", "The Subject Was Faggots", and "Brother". CD

An 80s collection, but one that's filled with gems from Gil Scott-Heron's legendary early years at Flying Dutchman – a time when he was recording some of his most impressively righteous material ever! The music's a hip mix of protest poetry and sweet jazzy numbers – played with great keyboard accompaniment from frequent partner Brian Jackson on nearly every track – plus help from Hubert Laws on flute and sax, and Bernard Purdie on drums. CD features 17 tracks in all – much more than the album – and titles include "Pieces of a Man", "Lady Day & John Coltrane", "Whitey on the Moon", "The Needle's Eye", "Home is Where the Hatred Is", "Did You Hear What They Said?", "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised", "No Knock", "Sex Education Ghetto Style", "A Sign Of The Ages", "The Prisoner", and "When You Are Who You Think You Are".
