VariousKid Loco Presents – French Funk Experience ... CD
Nascente (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... $6.99
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.

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.

Chicago Underground TrioPossible Cube ... CD
Delmark, 1999. Used ... $4.99
Groundbreaking work from the ever-changing melange of players associated with Chicago underground jazz musician Rob Mazurek. This "Chicago Underground" set features a trio lineup – with Mazurek on cornet, electronics, organ, and vibes; Chad Taylor on percussion and vibes; and Noel Kuppersmith on bass and vibes. Jeff Parker sits in on guitar and organ – and the record's got a free-flowing sound that's really wonderful, and which reminds us a lot of the best modal moments of the 70s, mixed with some of the more rhythmic sounds of the AACM. Titles include "Shaw Town", "Into Another You", "Passaros", "Pisces", "The Enormous Room", "Teletransporation Unit 3", "Energia", "La Jetee", and "Othello". CD

Heraldo Do MonteO Violao Do Heraldo Monte ... CD
London/Think (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $16.99
A great guitar session from late 60s Brazil – bossa at its core, but with some other groovy touches too! Guitarist Heraldo Do Monte plays light acoustic, in a style that's right up there with Luiz Bonfa or Baden Powell – but the overall setting of the album also gives a nod towards some of the more advanced changes going on in Brazilian instrumental music at the time – the first inkling of some of the Blue Brazil touches from EMI/Odeon, with a deeper sophistication in some of the arrangements than just straight bossa. A few moments are straight ahead, mixed with others that have a nice degree of darkness – and titles include "Teletema", "My Cherie Amour", "Recit De Cassard", "Que Maravilha", "Casa Forte", and "Moanin".

DVDLes Grandes Repetitions – Stockhausen & Varese (DVD) ... DVD
Mode, Mid 60s. New Copy ... $23.99 29.98
Two amazing films that were originally done for French Television in the 60s – as part of a series put together by Luc Ferrari to focus on the giants of 20th Century serious music! The DVD features two different shows, both pretty incredible – the first, a series of rehearsals for "Momente", a crucial 60s composition by Karlheinz Stockhausen – with performances here by soprano Martina Arroyo, and both Alfons and Aloys Kontarsky on electric organs! The second film is titled "Hommage A Edgard Varese" – a work dedicated to the composer, who died shortly before its creation – making for a tribute to Varese – featuring a rehearsal of "Deserts", extracts of a performance of "Ionisation", and comments from Marcel Duchamp, Iannis Xenakis, Olivier Messiaen, Pierre Schaeffer, and others.

✨✧ Earl Preston's Realms/Richmond Group/Michael AllenLiverpool Today – Where It All Began ... LP
Ember/Capitol, 1965. Sealed ... $28.99
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.

Gruppo Jazz MarcaMitteleuropa ... CD
Arision (UK), 1985. Used ... $6.99
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

Whitney HoustonWhitney Houston Live – Her Greatest Performances (CD & DVD) ... CD
Arista, 1980s/Early 90s. New Copy CD & DVD ... $18.99 19.98
A key chapter in Whitney Houston's musical legacy – finally presented in a proper package! Houston's fame knew no bounds during her big run in the late 80s and early 90s – and although she recorded plenty of albums, singles, and soundtrack material to reach her audiences, she also turned out some famous televised performances too – most of which are on this set! The package offers up both DVD and CD representations of classic guest moments – including "You Give Good Love (1985 Tonight Show)", "How Will I Know (Brit Awards 1987)", "Greatest Love Of All (Arista Records 15th Anniversary Concert 1990)", "Star Spangled Banner (1991 Super Bowl)", "All The Man That I Need (Welcome Home Heroes)", "Home (Merv Griffin 1983)", "I'm Every Woman (Concert For A New South Africa 1994)", and "My Love Is Your Love (Late Show With David Letterman 1998)". Lots more too – even performances from 2004 and 2009. CD

Manolo JuarezTrio Juarez + 2 (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Disques Dessinee (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $16.99
Really wonderful music from Argentine pianist Manolo Juarez – a set hat doesn't just have his trio augmented by the two elements promised in the title – but by a shifting array of sounds from guitar, vibes, quena, and even a bit of voice as well! The music is jazz, but with lots of Argentine touches as well – not really tango, but echos of older folkloric inspiration which come through in a really beautiful way – almost like some of Charlie Haden's South American inspirations, or elements from the Latin America chapter dates from Gato Barbieri – but much more focused and stripped-down to their core. The sound is wonderful – very unique – and titles include "Cancionera", "La Equivoca", "Loca De Amor", "La Bacha", "Luna Tucumana", "La Telesita", and "Vidalita De La Mama". CD

Calvin KeysElectric Keys ... CD
Wide Hive, 2013. New Copy ... $9.99 15.99
A great setting for guitarist Calvin Keys – one that has the famous Black Jazz funk artist of the 70s working with the younger energy of the Wide Hive Ensemble! The set's got a similar vibe to the recent Wide Hive album that featured Keys in the group – but this time around, Calvin's solos are much more prominent, and carved up with that hard-edged tone we've always loved so much in his music! The tunes are all pretty fresh – and include originals by Keys and others from Wide Hive members Gregory Howe and Matt Montgomery – really perfect settings for Calvin's wonderful work on his instrument, heard here at a level that's tighter than on most recent recordings. Tracks include "Telegraph Blues", "Shaw-Neeq", "The Hernia", "Touch", "You Know The Game", "Electric Keys", and "Backyard". CD

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".

Andrea RoccaLa Citta Ideale ... CD
Beat (Italy), 2013. New Copy ... $13.99
A beautiful soundtrack with a very subtle texture – one that comes from careful use of a number of different instrumental sounds, woven into a rich tapestry as the music moves on! Hammond figures strongly in some of the boldest moments, but the richness here really comes from offbeat use of vibes, steel guitar, tuba, percussion, trombone, violin, and other elements – sometimes moving at a slow, brooding pace – other times abstracted slightly in the performance – which manages to great both an unsettling vibe next to the pleasing sounds that emerge. Titles include "Fotografie", "Letto Vuoto", "Cantina", "Museo", "Tribunale", "Corridoi", "Telefonata", "Allontanamento", and "Cosa Vedi". CD

Hiromasa Suzuki & Colgen TrioTriton ... CD
Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $24.99
Unusual music from Hiromasa Suzuki – an artist we mostly know as a jazz musician, but who emerges here at the head of a great set of soundtrack-styled numbers! The music appears to be done for television in the late 70s – possibly as a sound library recording, we're not sure – and the instrumentation blends jazzy elements with fuller orchestrations in a mode that really recalls the best Italian crime and cop sounds of the middle part of the decade! Some cuts are funky, some are moody and spacey, and some are extremely creative – and the set features 26 numbers in all – all relatively short, and with Japanese titles too. CD

TavaresMadam Butterfly (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1978. New Copy ... $13.99
An incredible album from Tavares – every bit as great on the uptempo end, as you'd expect from their bigger hits, as it is on the sweeter ballad tracks – which step out here as a tremendous surprise! The set was crafted with help from Philly maestro Bobby Martin – and begins with a groove that certainly shows Martin in all of his Sigma-inspired glory – but as the set moves on, it glides into some sweeter, gentler tracks that come across with a mighty mellow soul approach! The set features 3 stellar tracks written by the great Sam Dees – "Games, Games", "Let Me Heal The Bruises", and "My Love Calls" – all of which show a strong deeper soul side of the group. Other tracks are great, too – and include "I'm Back For More", Never Had A Love Like This Before", "Straight From Your Heart", "One Telephone Call Away", and "Positive Forces". 3 bonus tracks: "Never Had A Love Like This Before (US Capitol 12" Single" – and the great instrumental version for that – plus ""Straight From Your Heart (US Capitol 7" Single)".

Ben Wolfe QuintetLive At Smalls ... CD
Smalls Live, 2010. New Copy ... $7.99 15.99
Way more than just a live recording – and instead a host of original material from bassist Ben Wolfe –- really sparkling with the strength of a well-crafted studio session! The tunes are fresh, and handled by a dynamic group that really brings out some wonderful energy in the music – the soaring horn combination of Marcus Strickland on tenor and Ryan Kisor on trumpet – and the rhythm trio of Wolfe on bass, Luis Perdomo on piano, and Gregory Hutchinson on drums – leaping into the fray in a way that really gets things moving. The recording quality – like most of these Smalls Live sets – is excellent, and perfect for capturing the nuances of both Wolfe's writing, and the interplay of the members of the group. Titles include "For The Great Sonny Clark", "Telescope", "Contraption", "Coleman's Cab", and "Double Czech". CD

VariousBeginners Guide To Brazil (3CD set) ... CD
Nascente (UK), 1960s/1970s/1980s/1990s/2000s. New Copy 3CD ... $9.99
A well-titled name for this sweet little package – a 3CD set that brings together a heck of a lot of Brazilian musical styles – all with a range that really lives up to its promise! The set is different from the older Beginners Guide To Brazil – and offers up a more contemporary mix, pulled from the rich archive of EMI in Brazil – with bits of samba, bossa, forro, MPB, and even some of the more compelling electronic and modern sounds coming from Brazil of late. As with other volumes, you get a heck of a lot of music for your money – a whopping 53 tracks that include "O Fole Roncou" by Luiz Gonzaga, "Bailao Gaucho" by Tonico E Tinoco, "Berimbau" by Pery Ribeiro & Leny Andrade, "Reis E Rainhas Do Maracatu" by Milton Nascimento, "Nascente" by Beto Guedes, "Tudo Que Voce Podia Ser" by Lo Borges, "Vou Com Gas" by Tim Maia, "Pais Tropical" by Wilson Das Neves, "Piston De Gafeira" by Moreira Da Silva, "Me Me Quitte Pas" by Maysa, "Teleco Teco No 2" by Elza Soares, "No Morro Da Casa Verde" by Adoniran Barbosa, "Eu Bebo Sim" by Golden Boys, "Onde Anda O Meu Amor" by Bossa Tres, and "Conto De Areia" by Clara Nunes.

VariousCharlie Gillett's Radio Picks – Honky Tonk Vol 2 ... CD
Ace (UK), 1950s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99
R&B, soul, roots rock, country, and more – all served up in a heady space that was the unique sound of Charlie Gillett's famous Honky Tonk radio show in the 70s! Charlie did a heck of a lot for breaking down musical barriers at the time – and was a hugely influential DJ whose work in London also helped shape an American understanding of musical roots as well – as Gillett could effortlessly bring together sounds from many different sides of the spectrum, finding stylistic elements that really unified the music! The range of work here is spun over decades, varied scenes, and many styles – but the whole thing sounds great together, and is supported by really rich notes on Gillett's show and his lasting musical legacy. Titles include "Walk On By" by Leroy Van Dyke, "Tulsa Telephone Book" by Tom T Hall, "Saturday Night" by Roy Brown, "Nitty Gritty" by Sir Douglas Quintet, "Red Hot" by Billy The Kid Emerson, "Foolish You" by Kate & Anna McGarrigle, "Sweet Dreams" by Roy Buchanan, "Love My Baby" by Little Junior's Blue Flames, "The Swan" by Jona Lewie, "Such A Night" by Dr John, "Ruler Of My Heart" by Irma Thomas, "Stealing In The Name Of The Lord" by Paul Kelly, "The Promised Land" by Johnnie Allan, "Lover Please" by Dennis Turner, and "Think" by The 5 Royales.

Jorge BenBig Ben ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... On June 10, 2015
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 ... On June 17, 2015
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".

Labi SiffreSinger & The Song ... CD
EMI/Edsel (UK), 1971. New Copy ... On July 10, 2015
An incredible record from Labi Siffre – spare, simple, and totally beautiful – in a space beyond category! The album is the sort that should have been a real standout in the 70s – early work by one of the freshest songwriters to hit the British scene, sung in a style that's a bit jazzy, a bit soulful – with playful inflections that never get in the way of the beautiful lyrics at all. Labi's got a unique blend of modes here that ranks with a rare few in music – Terry Callier, Joni Mitchell, and a few other beyond-category artists from the same generation. The whole thing's extremely beautiful – and Labi's voice and guitar are backed by some subtle arrangements that shade in the bottom with electric keys, a bit of bass, spare strings – and sometimes nothing at all! Titles include "Thank You Lucky Star", "Bless The Telephone", "There's Nothing In The World Like Love", "You're Lovely", "A Number Of Words", "Who Do You See", "Not So Long Ago", "Relax", and "Interlude". CD
