CortijoAnsonia Years – 1969 to 1971 ... CD
Ansonia/Vampi Soul (Spain), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $18.99
Some of the best work ever from Puerto Rican percussionist Rafael Cortijo Verdejo – sides recorded in New York for the Ansonia label, at a time when Cortijo's music was even more rootsy than it was a decade before! The material here marks a renewed sense of tradition in players of Cortijo's generation – almost a back-to-basics mode that was their answer to the hybrids of the late 60s – a style that often has Rafael focusing even more on the rhythms at the bottom of the tracks, and leaving behind some of the fuller orchestrations of the 50s. The mighty Kako joins in on percussion on a number of tracks too – and singers include Chivirico Davila and Johnny Vega – on titles that include "Chiviriquiton", "Tele Tele Ya", "La Madama", "Que Linda Te Ves", "Tu Y Tu Guarapo", "Quien Fuel El Primero", "Echando Un Pie", "Alegria Bomba Es", "Dorotea", "Dudando", and "El Negrito Bailador". Comes with great notes in Spanish and English, too! CD

VariousPunk 45 – Extermination Nights In The Sixth City – Cleveland, Ohio Punk & The Decline Of The Midwest 1975 to 1982 ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $26.99 29.99
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.

✨✧ VariousChange The Beat – The Celluloid Records Story 1979 to 1987 (with CD) ... LP
Celluloid/Strut (UK), Late 70s/1980s. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Hip hop, street soul, and lots lots more – a really revolutionary selection of music from the legendary Celluloid Records – a label that was virtually a genre unto itself! Celluloid was a key force tying together the New York downtown scene at the start of the 80s, and the postcolonial music world of Paris – and as a result, they always operated with a culture-crossing style that few other companies of the time managed to hit – merging together sounds in really unlikely ways, and often coming up with fresh new styles in the process! The label's known for crate-diggers for its hip hop releases – and to world music fans for its electric Africa work – but they also were on the forefront of New York No Wave, avant jazz, and post-punk – and somehow found a way to integrate both young new talents, and older experimentalists who still had plenty to offer. This package finally does Celluloid justice – and goes way past the few simplistic comps of the label's work over the years – training the skilled Strut ear to the whole thing, and also serving up the full story of the label in the process. Titles include "I'm The One" by Material, "Day Tripper" by Shockabilly, "Tele Apres La Meteo" by Fredinand, "Disco Rough (long version)" by Mathematiques Modernes, "Electrique Sylvie (full length version)" by Modern Guy, "Mean Machine Chant/Mean Machine" by Last Poets, "Abele Dance ('85 rmx)" by Manu Dibango, "Change The Beat (French & English)" by Fab 5 Freddy, "The Escapades Of Futura 2000" by Futura 2000 with The Clash, and "Downing Street Rock" by Winston Edwards & Blackbeard.

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 BakerVendetta Tapes – Incidental Music From The 1960s BBC TV Series & Other Radiophonics (with bonus download) ... LP
Buried Treasure, Mid 60s. New Copy ... $19.99
Sublime sound cues from BBC maestro John Baker – a wonderful blend of jazzy moments and weird electronic sounds – often used together at the same time! The feel here is as hip as the hippest Brit TV of the 60s – some very righteous grooves that would have made great records on their own – mixed with moodier moments that blend together all sorts of forward-thinking elements, at a level that was hardly being done on American TV at the time – easy shifts between timings and tones that keep the whole thing moving with an incredible degree of freshness throughout – with a sound that's way way different than any sort of other television work we can think of. Some tracks have improvised tenor or flute passages, often while other weird electric bits are taking place – and there's also lots of nice work on drums and percussion, which further gives the electronics a direction! Titles include tracks from Vendetta episodes "The Sugar Man", "The Dolly Man", "Suivez La Piste", "The Widow Man", "The Caves Of Steel", and "The Ice Cream Man". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jorge BenForca Bruta ... CD
Philips/Dusty Groove, 1970. Used ... $19.99
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".

Andrew Birkin & Alison CastleJane & Serge – A Family Album (hardcover) ... Book
Taschen, 2015. New Copy ... $34.99 59.99
A surprisingly candid look at one of the most important musical couples of the 20th Century – Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin – a duo who made some incredible sounds together in the French scene of the 60s and 70s – and who were equally important to larger French culture as well! The pair have become the stuff of legend over the years – a romance that began when Serge was 40, and Jane not yet 20 – open, frank, and very sexual, both in their words and music – with a legacy that spanned records, film, and television – and also gave the world the actress Charlotte Gainsbourg as well. This volume's way more than a book – as it collects together shots of the couple and the family taken by Jane's brother Andrew Birkin – and presents the whole thing as if you're looking at a family album in the Birkin/Gainsbourg household! But there's also a smaller booklet of text, as well as a contact sheet of photos, 5 chromogenic photographic prints, a poster, stickers, and even an embroidered patch – all making for a beautifully lavish set of images and goodies! The core book features 176 pages of photos – but there's lots lots more within. Book

BootsBeat – The Complete Telefunken Years ... CD
Telefunken/RPM (UK), 1965/1967. New Copy 2 CDs ... $18.99
These guys must have been one of the coolest combos going in Germany during the 60s – especially as they were working behind the wall in West Berlin, cooking up some mighty soulful sounds to rival the best British beat groups of the time! In truth, these guys could easily be mistaken for the cool London groups who effortlessly mixed up R&B, soul, and raw rock influences – but there's also a nicely individual vibe to these guys, too – and a quality that really draws heavily from soul music at times, and which continues well onto their later material here on the set! Vocals are wonderfully raw – as are the heavy drums and guitar – and although they add in a bit more horns to their later cuts, it only seems to give the whole thing even more punch than before. 2CD set features the full albums Beat With The Boots and Here Are The Boots – plus 10 more bonus tracks, including some rare live recordings. Titles include "Mama Keep Your Big Mouth Shut", "Green Onions", "Get Out Of My Life Woman", "I Can Not Believe", "Searching Days", "I Feel Good", "It Was A Private Affair", "Comin Home", "Crazy Enough For Me", "Gaby", "Watch Your Step", "Jump Back Baby", "Dimples< "Remember", and "I Wish You Would".

BT ExpressDo It (Til You're Satisfied) ... LP
Scepter, 1974. Very Good- ... $5.99
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".

Chico BuarqueOs Primeiros Anos (Chico Buarque De Hollanda Vols 1, 2 & 3) ... CD
Som Livre (Brazil), 1966/1967/1968. New Copy 3 CDs ... $29.99
A beautiful collection of work from Chico Buarque – one of the most important singer/songwriters in Brazilian music during the past 50 years! The three records in the set are the classic Chico Buarque De Hollanda Vols 1, 2, & 3 – real standard-setting records that still stand as some of Chico's finest music ever! The first album is Chico Buarque's debut, and a groundbreaking batch of tunes that helped shape the sound of popular music in Brazil for years to come! Buarque predates the Tropicalia era, but is working here in a style that clearly allowed for their later impact – a mode that draws on styles from bossa, folklore, and samba – but which somehow manages to rise into a groove that's all its own. Buarque's genius can immediately be summed up in classics on the set – like "Pedro Pedreiro", "A Rita", "Tem Mais Samba", "A Banda", and "Ole Ola" – all wonderful numbers that make the album an essential one in any collection! Volume 2 features simple, effective, straightforward tunes – and music that has had a resonance in Brazil for many decades since! At one level, the sound here draws heavily from the samba recordings of previous years – but at another level, there's a greater level of sophistication that predates the growth of the MPB generation during the 70s – a sound that blends in some larger backings and airy production, all for a sound that's completely heavenly! Titles include "Noite Dos Mascarados", "A Televisao", "Fica", "Com Acucar, Com Afeto", "Logo Eu?", "Ano Novo", "Realejo", and "Um Chorinho". Volume 3 is a record that seems to draw on all the best elements of 60s Brazilian pop, and forge them into a sound that's all its own! At one level, there's a post-bossa style of larger arrangements here that recalls the work of Edu Lobo – handled by Maestro Gaya in a mode that recalls some of the best bits of the time on the Elenco or Forma labels. But at another level, there's also a personal and slightly folksy style that reminds us of the initial power of Geraldo Vandre – a sound that's clearly present in Buarque's work, and which stands in a direct line to the best strengths of the emerging Tropicalia generation. The set's filled with classics that include "Carolina", "Roda Viva", "O Velho", "Ate Pensei", "Sem Fantasia", and "Desencontro" – and a few tracks feature Chico in duets with either Toquinho, Cristina, or MPB4!

Country Music Hall Of FameBakersfield Sound – Buck Owens, Merle Haggard, & California Country ... Book
Hal Leonard, 2012. New Copy ... $4.99 19.95
As folks in the know have always known, the city of Nashville isn't the only hotbed of country music – as California's Bakersfield brought the world plenty of great sounds too – music from Tommy Collins, Buck Owens, Merle Haggard, and others – a very important tradition, presented in lively fashion here by the Country Music Hall of Fame! The book is full color throughout, filled with as many great images and photos as you'll see on the cover – a fitting presentation, given Bakersfield's proximity to Los Angeles, and the role its musicians played in Hollywood, on the television screen, and in the studios of Capitol Records. The book's not the most detailed account of Bakersfield you'll ever read, but it's got a great look – almost like a Bear Family box set book – and is almost 100 pages, softcover, and filled with great photos.

Gilberto GilSua Musica Sua Interpretacao ... 7-inch
Polysom (Brazil), 1963. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $7.99
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

Romolo GranoArcana/L'Uomo Del Tesoro Di Priamo ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1972/1977. New Copy ... $19.99
Two 70s Italian soundtracks – back to back in a single CD set, and as musically compelling as they are obscure! First up is Arcana, a score that features arrangements from Berto Pisano – a maestro who's got a great way of drifting moody sounds through groovier moments – working here in a blend of offbeat strings, keyboards, and very cool vocalizations from Edda Dell'Orso – all at levels that feel different than some of the other Italian work of the time. Some tracks have a very ancient quality, but in atmosphere – as they still retain a 70s vibe in the production and instrumentation – while others start slow, and take off a bit more once they get going – in a set of 7 titles that include "Taranta", "Arcana", "Introversione", "L'Uomo Con se Stesso", and "Sacro E Profano". L'Uomo Del Tesoro Di Priamo is an obscure television soundtrack from the mid 70s – one that's arranged here by Gianni Oddi, with a mix of modes that features some interesting global elements coming into play with more upbeat passages too – usually a bit of ethnic strings amidst more familiar 70s backings – sometimes moody, sometimes electric. Titles include "Micene", "Danza Turca", "Bunarbashi", "Richerche Archeologiche", and "Mistero Di Troia". CD

Dave Grusin/Teddy RandazzoGirl From UNCLE ... LP
MGM, 1966. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $29.99
One of the greatest spy soundtracks of the 60s – a very groovy batch of tracks written for Stefanie Powers' brief TV show, The Girl From UNCLE! The music here is better than the male version of the UNCLE franchise – hip 60s spy themes, done in a groovy style for the television audience – often a cool blend of swirling strings, jazzy orchestrations, and some very hip rhythms! Dave Grusin penned the music, and Teddy Randazzo arranged – bringing his 60s soul background into the work in a really great way – emphasizing the grooves even more than on other records of this nature, in a way that's made the set very sought after in the crate-digging scene. There's plenty of nice 60s elements – keyboards, wordless vocals, funky flute, and other hip effects – and titles include "Movin On", "Out Of The Frying Pan", "The Girl From UNCLE", "Sneaky Search", "The Countess", and "Bomb Scare".

Capitol, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
Great work from Earl Hagen – one of TV's better composers, as you'll hear from this tight set of tracks! The core mode of the music is crime jazz, but Hagen also adds in a lot of dramatic flourishes and contemplative passages – and the show's exotic locales (Mexico, Japan, Burma, Hong Kong) makes for some added musical touches that bring a groovy global aspect to the work. And given that Bill Cosby was a key member of the show, you can bet that things sound pretty darn hip! Titles include "I Spy", "Over The Wall", "Rots Of Ruck", "Domingo", "The International Set", "To Florence With Love", "Sophia", and "The Golden Age". LP, Vinyl record album

The spacey look of the cover is a great fit for the music – a set of keyboard-heavy club instrumentals, which often come across with a 70s sort of cosmic disco vibe! The performance is as spare as the album's title – usually just basslines, rhythms, and loads of great keyboard lines on Roland, Yamaha, and Korg models – given a nice sense of direction from the groove, and played in a tight, tuneful way that's never too self-indulgent. The whole thing's also produced with just the sort of warm, classic glow you'd expect from the Nang Records label – on titles that include "Arp", "Taxi", "Jet Disco", "Delayed Flight", "Teleskope", "Running On The Waves", "Trip To Airport", and "10,000 Over The Earth".

Beat (Italy), 1977. New Copy ... $18.99
Nice to know that we've lived past the year 2000 – and have managed to miss the holocaust that Kirk Douglas fought in this late 70s film! The movie's just the kind of overdone thriller that Kirk handled late in his career – but thankfully, the music from Ennio Morricone is much deeper overall – done in that brilliant blend of creepy styles that could make anything come together on the screen, even without any good special effects or dialogue! Some numbers have spooky, spare passages with earthy percussion and woodwinds, others have offbeat strings, some have some light electric elements – and overall, the music is nicely understated, always classy, and years ahead of some of the cheaper horror scoring of the time. CD features a whopping 33 tracks in all – the fullest version of the soundtrack we've ever seen – with titles that include "Holocaust", "Computer", "Slogan", "Jesus", "Il Bene Cattivo", "Serie Di Tre", "Strofa Monodica", and "Telefonata Interrotta".

Ennio MorriconeEspion Leve Toi (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Music Box (France), 1982. New Copy ... $18.99
An overlooked gem from Ennio Morricone – great work from his French period of the early 80s, when he was scoring in some especially great ways! The movie's got a spy theme, but as always with Morricone, the music is a lot more than you'd expect – often done with these melodies that are building and brooding, with one key offbeat element throbbing with the rhythm – including some nicely askew piano on a few of the best themes here, which is sometimes matched by trumpet work from Italian jazz legend Oscar Valdambrini! There's a mature approach to the music that really fits the Lino Ventura presence in the narrative – and the trumpet is often muted or subdued, in a way that compresses it beautifully with the rest of the orchestrations. Titles include "Espion Leve Toi", "Marche En La", "Bugle Pour Anna", "Secret Nocturne", "Telephone Sans Reponse", and "Melodie Pour Anna". CD also features 12 more bonus tracks not on the original album! CD

A wonderful collection of Latin recordings from postwar France – all recorded by Cuban native Filiberto Rico, an artist who moved between Havana and Paris in the early part of his life – and seemed to leave quite a musical legacy in the process! Rico was part of seminal Cuban recordings of the 30s, and definitely has the chops to make his French recordings come across at a level that rivals the music taking place in his homeland at the end of the 40s – but there's also a nice current of American jump blues on some of these numbers too – which almost creates a jukebox mambo sort of vibe – as Latin percussion, rolling piano lines, and well-blown saxophone solos take off alongside the vocals! Singers here include Fermin Lorenzo Jova, Antonio Picallo, Emilio Aarmengol, Doris Marnier, and Carlos Petrel – and titles include "Somos Differentes", "Angelitos Negros", "Se Acabo", "Pajarito", "Tumba", "Tu Felicidad", "Dinorah", "Colibri", "Sabrosura", "La Ola Marina", and "La Television" 36 tracks in all!

Holy Soundtracks! 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! The album is every bit as great as you might think – as it's got the full flavor of the campy television classic – with loads of the original music from the show – the themes you remember, as you heard them, and not a bunch of watered-down tracks inspired by the show – plus (and this is the best part!), the record has loads of dialogue from the TV show in between the tracks – cool exclamations from Adam West, Burt Ward, and others – which makes listening to the record as fun as watching the show! Titles include "Batman Pows The Penguin", "Batman Riddles The Riddler", "Gotham City", "Batman Thaws Mr Freeze", and "To The Batmobile!" LP, Vinyl record album

Flying Dutchman/BGP, 1971. New Copy ... $8.99
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".
