✨✧ LaikaSilver Apples Of The Moon (180 gram colored vinyl) ... LP
Too Pure/Medical, 1995. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The hypnotic, brilliantly layered soundscapes of Laika – still one of the most impressively atmospheric avant rock albums of the 90s – from and act that's beloved by relative few, but deserve to be hailed as one of the most creative groups of their time. Margaret Fielder and Guy Fixsen are the primary architects of Laika – and they have amazing way of combining hypnotic 90s shoegaze atmophere with instrumentation that's more aligned with 70s avant jazz and experimental rock – vibes, melodica, moog, marimba, dubby drums and bass, etc. This one has sax & flute, too, courtesy Louise Elliot, and the titles Include "Sugar Daddy", "Marimba Song", "Let Me Sleep", "Itchy & Scratchy", "Coming Down Glass", "If You Miss", "Robbers", "Red River", "Honey In Heat", "Thomas" and "Spider Happy Hour".

AmericaHomecoming ... LP
Warner, 1972. Very Good Gatefold ... $5.99
Pure genius from America – the kind of record that forever transformed the sound of the mainstream in the 70s! There's a balance here that's completely sublime, right from the start – a summation of all that went before in popular music, wrapped up into a whole new sound that's light years ahead of most music of its generation! The group use acoustic instrumentation and warm harmonies – yet never in a way that's folksy at all – often more jazzy in their phrasing, yet not jazz either – really just a sound that we can only sum up as "America-like" – and maybe add the word "perfect" too. Titles include the classic "Ventura Highway" – plus "Moon Song", "Only In Your Heart", "Till The Sun Comes Up Again", "Saturn Nights", and "California Revisited". LP, Vinyl record album

Bomba EstereoElegancia Tropical ... CD
Soundway (UK), 2013. New Copy ... $9.99
The best album so far from this up-and-coming Colombian group – a great mix of rootsy elements and more electronic production – served up in the forward-reaching style we've come to love in recent projects from the Soundway label! Bomba Estereo are easily one of the most contemporary groups to hit the imprint of late – and they've got no trouble at all moving between upbeat, soulful styles and more earthy levels of instrumentation – all fused together with the kind of warmth and joy we might expect in some of the older productions from Luaka Bop, but with a bit more edge too. Titles include "Bosque", "Bailar Conmigo", "Pa Respirar", "Mozo", "Pajaros", "Pure Love", and "Caribbean Power". CD

✨✧ James BrownPure Dynamite! ... CD
King/Universal (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $13.99
Raw live energy from the great James Brown – and a record that comes hot on the heels of Live At The Apollo! Like that one, this set was supposedly "recorded on the spot" – and it's even harder, faster, and noisier than that classic – with a loud-bursting sound that definitely lives up to the "dynamite" title, and which is far more unbridled than James on his King studio albums. The crowds seem to get equal time in front of the microphones as James – further enforcing the liveness of the record – and titles include "I'll Never Let You Go", "Good Good Lovin", "Shout & Shimmy", "Like A Baby", and "I'm Tired But I'm Clean". Album cover is great too – with a cool gatefold cover that's filled with photos of James, fans, and some lovely ladies! CD

Vic CaesarBare Knuckles – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Gucci, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99 16.98
A long lost electric funk soundtrack for the grindhouse also-ran Bare Knuckles – full of wild, funky organ riffing, heavy drums and chicken scratch guitar! The flick is one of those sleazy 70s monstrosities full of motorcycle chases, bloody fist fights, and butt ugly guys who get the girls anyway – ripe material for a wildly funky soundtrack! We don't know details of the sessions or the players involved, but the sound is pure late 70s gritty organ and drums funk – one that would fit a blaxploitation flick, a badly dubbed kung fu cheapie or silly revenge flick! Tracks include "Bare Knuckles", "Shake Down", "Gonna Getcha", "Loving You", "Essex Exit", "Charing Cross", "Loving You Too", "Bare Knuckle Blues" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Dining RoomsNumero Deux (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Schema (Italy), 2001. New Copy ... $18.99
A classic set from one of the best groups of the downtempo generation – and one of the few whose work we still turn to all these years later! The Dining Rooms move in the same space as early Kruder & Dorfmeister or Mo Wax, but also bring in some jazzier elements at times too – just the smallest kernels of the sorts of sounds that would later land them on Schema Records – but used in really nice ways, to give their music a lot more depth than most of their contemporaries. Titles include "Chorus Of Flames", "Sei Tu", "Pure & Easy", "Invocation", "Cosi Ti Amo", "Luzy", "Maria", and "False Start". Features the bonus tracks "The Waiting Room" and "Cinemaroma 4 (Pierpa touch)". CD

✨✧ Marvin GayeI Want You (2CD expanded & remastered edition) ... CD
Motown, 1976. Used 2CD ... $14.99
An incredible record – quite possibly our favorite ever by Marvin Gaye! The album is quite unique – written by Leon Ware, and recorded in collaboration with him – done as a "suite" of tracks based on themes of passion, joy, and new love – all of which were very much on the mind of Marvin during his troubled years of the mid 70s. The whole thing's beautifully put together – superbly orchestrated with just the right funky touches, and even a sweet bit of electronics to give the set a nice edge. An amazing album – one of those soul records that goes deeper and deeper than you ever thought pop music could go – filled with great tracks that include "I Want You", "After the Dance", "Come Live With Me", and "Since I Had You". Genius – pure genius! Beautifully expanded, too – with 17 bonus tracks that include a wealth of alternate mixes, outtakes, and demos that get at the Pet Sounds-like production style of this masterpiece – plus a promo only vocal version of "I Want You", and instrumentals of "I Want You" and "Strange Love".

George JonesGrand Ole Opry's Newest Star (with download) ... LP
Starday/Reserve, 1957. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 19.98
A really early record by a young, fresh-faced George Jones – his full length debut, actually – released in 1957 by Starday, not too long after his debut appearance at the Grand Ole Opry! George had been recording some artistically promising, if underselling singles for a couple years prior, including the now legendary rockabilly sides (on which he was billed as "Thumper" Jones), but this was his first full length showcase as a rising country singer. The title is pure showbiz, as George wouldn't be a big star for a couple more years. He was ready, though! The songs are great, and he wrote or co-wrote most of 'em – and oh man, that VOICE – this is where the legend begins, people! Includes the early classic "Why, Baby, Why", and a whole bunch of great tunes, including "You Gotta Be My Baby", "Ragged But Right", "It's OK", "Still Hurtin'", "Boat Of Life", "Let Him Know", "Play It Cool" and more.

✨✧ MadlibShades Of Blue – Madlib Invades Blue Note ... LP
Blue Note, 2003. New Copy 2 LPs ... $22.99 24.98
Madlib invades Blue Note! He gets free reign of the catalog for this mix of sampler genius and live band interpretations, too, as/with Ahmad Miller, Yesterdays New Quintet, Malcolm Catto, Medaphoar, and others from the Stones Throw camp. This one's truly a conceptual triumph, if there ever was such a thing – one of the greatest hip hop producers alive, given carte blanche with the source beats of the century! Madlib's Blue Note crates are heavily weighed in the mid 60s through mid 70s electric beats that often get the shaft in mainstream jazz round-ups, but floor the beathead world into overdrive. Re-interpretations, remixes, and revisions are spliced seamlessly with the source samples, creating a whole new world where hip hop and late model live funk not only co-exists with classic Blue Note jazz, but it actually draws a linear transition between the 2 genius art forms. Beautiful stuff – if the album isn't the most original idea to come along all of these years into the hip hop & jazz underground, it's certainly one of the most perfectly realized projects of its kind, ever! It's one for the time capsule – easily one of Madlib's masterpieces, and pure funky sample wizardry by any standard! Includes Monk Higgins' "Slim's Return" interpreted by Ahmad Miller and DJ Lord Such on cuts, "Donald Byrd's "Distant Land", "Ronnie Foster's "Mystic Bounce", Yesterday's New Quintet's adaptation of Wayne Shorter's "Footprints", Madlib Invazion's "Funky Blue Note", the Joe McDuphrey Experience take on Horace Silver's/Herbie Hancock's "Peace/Dolphin Dance" and lots more.

Curtis MayfieldBack To The World ... CD
Curtom/Warner (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $13.99
Pure genius from Curtis Mayfield – and a record that's got all the righteousness and political power you might guess from the cover! The album burns with a sense of empowerment that's every bit the best strength of Curtom in the 70s – a sublime blend of heavy soul, funky undercurrents, and far-reaching arrangements that still always manage to groove! And Curtis' vocals are great too – echoing out with a newfound presence that far surpasses the raspy quality of his early work with The Impressions. Arrangements are by Rich Tufo, production is by Mayfield, and titles include "Future Song" (aka "Future Shock"), "Keep on Trippin", "Can't Say Nothin", "Back To The The World", and "Right On For The Darkness".

Mickey & The Soul GenerationMickey & The Soul Generations (3LP set) ... LP
Cali Tex, Early 70s. New Copy 3 LP Gatefold (reissue)... $29.99 35.98
Was funk ever this great again? Maybe not – as Mickey & The Soul Generation were one of the greatest groups of their generation – a completely polished gem, in the sometimes rough-edged funky 45 rockpile! The band never cut a full album, but their 7" singles from the early 70s are the stuff of legend – some of the first funky 45s that started passing amongst collectors, prized for their incredibly tight sound – right up there with the JBs, Meters, and other established funky acts for pure "in the pocket" action. Most of that rare early work's never been reissued – save for the occasional dodgy boot – which is why it's even more wonderful to have this double-length set of work by the group, complete with a fuller track listing than we'd ever imagined they recorded, and full notes on the music and band by Josh Davis, aka DJ Shadow! This insane 3LP set is bigger than any previous collection on the group – and has updated notes from Davis, plus a lot more tracks – including a previously unreleased LP, demo material, and live tracks too! Tracks include "Iron Leg", "Football", "Up The Stairs & Around The Bend", "Give Everybody Some", "Joint Session", "Chocolate", "Message From A Black Man", "Soulful Sickness", "UFO", "Hey Brother Man", "Southern Fried Funk", "How Good Is Good", and "We Got To Make A Change".

Ennio MorriconeI Demoni Di San Pietroburgo ... CD
Sugar/Digitmovies (Italy), 2008. New Copy ... $24.99
Wonderful late work from Ennio Morricone – penned for a film that was one of his last few soundtrack projects on this planet! The music matches some of the maestro's best period pieces from decades back – done with a style that's got some traces of the time in which the story is set, but always delivered with a personal approach that's pure Morricone – especially once things get going, and the instrumentation is even more spacious and moody! Violin is one of the main solo instruments, but there's also a few nice trumpet parts too – and titles include "New Attack", "The Publisher", "For My Father", "On The River", "The Flag", "Shot", "Pursued", and "For Three".

Leonore O'MalleyFirst Be A Woman ... CD
Polydor/Gold Legion, 1980. New Copy ... $11.99 14.98
A nice little album from the years when girl power wasn't just a punk rock thing – part of that undercurrent of "modern woman" pop from the late 70s – as evidenced by the album's title, and it's cover image of Leonore O'Malley ripping open her suit like Clark Kent! Yet as with the image, there's no superhero costume underneath, just pure raw woman – a sentiment that's echoed in the title track too – as the album comes across with a vibe that's more disco than anything else, especially the European variant of the style! Leonore's a surprisingly strong singer – not really soul, but soulful in all the right ways – and she fits in with the grooves in a way that puts all the right sunny touches up top – on titles that include "First Be A Woman", "One Night Lover Man", "Boogie Dancer", "L'Amour Toujours L'Amour", "Put A Rainbow In Your Heart", and "Victim Of The Past".

Osaka MonaurailRiptide ... CD
Unique (Germany), 2014. New Copy ... $11.99 17.98
Tremendous work from one of our favorite funk combos ever – Japan's legendary Osaka Monaurail, easily one of the sharpest, tightest, most soulful groups of the past 20 years! These guys have a really no-nonsense approach to funk – from the top to the bottom, from the execution to the production, from the street to the speaker – with a sound that's one of the few to really get a pure approach to the best funky 45 material of the late 60s and early 70s! There's no hoke, no easy references, no simplistic retro sensibilities – just rock-solid, razor-sharp instrumentation – at a level to match the James Brown band on late 60s King Records – who are clearly an inspiration for the crew. This set's got all their best funky 45 energy firmly intact, but also features a few longer numbers with sweet solos too – and as usual, the vocals are completely unique – raw funk, but with an accented twist that really grabs us. Titles include "(She's A) Riptide", "The Horse", "Liberty", "Solar Eclipse", "Calinga", "Fruit Basket", and "Determination". CD

Dottie PearsonHouse Made Of Love ... CD
Grapevine (UK), 1978. New Copy ... $11.99 19.99
A lost soul treasure from the 70s – and a rare secular album recorded by gospel singer Dottie Peoples! The set's got a stunning deep soul feel – easily right up there with the best 70s work from the Malaco and Muscle Shoals scenes – with a pure and top-shelf approach to the material that stands tall throughout the entire session. Dottie's vocals are tremendous – influenced by her gospel work, but with an easygoing style that's never too overdone, and which has the same mix of modern and southern that we love in work from the time by Jimmy Lewis or Sam Dees. The album's never been issued before, and the original 1978 tapes have been lovingly remastered with beautiful sound. Titles include "Look Around", "Imagine Me", "A House Made Of Love", "Very Strong Affection", "I Don't Want Nobody", and "Bring It Over Baby". CD

Joe SimonChokin Kind – The Sound Stage 7 Collection ... CD
Sound Stage 7/Airline, Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99 18.99
Some of the greatest work ever from soul singer Joe Simon – presented here in a full package for the first time ever! Simon's an artist with countless great work to his name – including early singles for Fame and Vee Jay, and later hits for the Spring label in the 70s – but to us, his work for the Sound Stage 7 label may well be his best – as it offers up a pure, proud Simon really standing at the crossroads of soul music – twisting together many different strands with effortless ease! The style here is still more southern than Joe's later work, but there's also a hipper, tighter vibe going on too – one that even makes some of the more country-styled moments come across like nobody else, with an expansive range that might have the sophistication and class of Jerry Butler one minute, and the raspier charm of Bobby Womack the next. This 36 track set is the deepest dig we've ever seen into Simon's years at the label – and is filled with great tracks that include "No Sad Songs", "Dreamin", "Can't Find No Happiness", "Long Hot Summer", "Too Many Rivers", "Nine Pound Steel", "Teenager's Prayer", "It's Too Late", "Misty Blue", "The Chokin Kind", "Moon Walk", "San Francisco Is A Lonely Town", "Help Yourself", "Baby Don't Be Looking In My Mind", "Misty Blue", and lots more!

The musicianship is famously top notch, too, making for one of those amazing moments in rock when a great voice – not just a great sounding singer, but uniquely visionary presence ultimately proves to be more forceful than the players. Produced by John Cale, with great guitar from Lenny Kaye – and titles that include "Gloria", "Redondo Beach", "Birdland", "Free Money", "Kimberly", and "Land". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Flying LotusUntil The Quiet Comes (plus download) ... LP
Warp, 2012. New Copy 2LP ... $23.99
The best yet from Flying Lotus – who we keep allowing ourselves to believe has hit an insurmountable peak with each new record – but he just keeps getting better! Where the preceding Cosmogramma upped the stranger, spacier and more abstract textures, Until The Quiet Comes is a bit more inviting – and to his credit, Flying Lotus keeps things as innovative as ever, while still giving this one just a bit more immediately appealing atmosphere. There's nearly always a compelling beat, whether it's abstract boom bap or bubbly and synthy, with heavy bass and thick waves of sound floating over. An incredible roster of guests contribute, too – including string-arranger Miguel Atwood Ferguson, vocalists Erykah Badu, Laura Darlington and Radiohead's Thom Yorke, keyboardist Dorian Concept, and others – but there's little doubt that this is purely the Flying Lotus show. Greatness! Titles include "All In", "Sultan's Request", "See Thru To U" with Erykah Badu, "DMT Song" with Thundercat, "The Nightcaller", "Only If You Wanna", "Electric Candyman" with Thom Yorke, "Hunger" with Niki Randa, "Phantasm" with Laura Darlington, "Dream To Me" and more.

KassinSonhando Devagar (with download) ... LP
20/20/20, 2013. New Copy Gatefold ... $16.99 19.99
Really wonderful work from Alexandre Kassin – easily one of the most important contemporary figures in Brazilian music of the past decade or two! Kassin's best known on these shores for his work with Moreno Veloso and Domenico – but he's also had a hand in countless collaborations with others, both as a musician and a producer – helping shape the sound of Brazil in ways that rival American efforts of the post-rock generation. Yet Kassin's music is uniquely Brazilian, too – filled with warmth and imagination, and a careful balance of roots from older styles and cool contemporary execution – yet all without any of the genre-clashing styles of some of his compatriots on the scene – who sometimes try too hard to sound unique. Kassin's got a way of sounding universally appealing, yet never commercial – a really beautiful balance that's has his work at the top of our stacks for years – and which, with a record like this, may finally get him the global attention he deserves. The tunefulness at play is purely infectious – timeless sunshine pop hooks and overall catchiness, mixed with buzzing, avant touches on the edges that push it into weirder, but no less accessible realms. Percussion, guitar, vibes, Rhodes, horns and flute are often in the mix, with easygoing vocals by Kassin and backup singers. Includes "Mundo Natural", "Potassio", "For a De Area", "O Que Voce Quiser", "Calca De Ginastica", "Sorver-Te", and "Quando Voce Esta Sambando". LP, Vinyl record album

VenturesVentures In The Vaults Vol 5 – An Excitiong Collection Of Rare & Unissued Tracks From The 60s ... CD
Ace (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $9.99
Rip-roaring early 60s instrumentals by The Ventures – and rare, too – most of which have never been issued before! The Ventures have a way of trading in all the signature elements of the greatest sounds of the early 60s rock instrumental scenes, but really transcending it all, thanks to their straight-up masterful playing. The set's full of twangy, fuzz-dreached proto-garage guitars and rumbling rhythms, on par with their greatest work back in the day – and each title is brought to life brilliantly, in that you can easily envision the scenes described by titles – purely from the racket the band strums, picks and beats out. Titles include "Getaway", "Blue Coral", "The Lonely One", "Lady Of Spain", "Bossa Nova Beach Girl", "Stranger On The Shore", "How Can I Help You Girl", "Fuzz Factor", "Scarlet Sunset", "Shake It Easy", "Sauerkraut", "Ventures Stomp (Alternate)", "Wipeout (Live Studio Recording)" and many more. 26 cuts in all!

Philadelphia International, 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Pure brilliance from The Futures – a group who were already a standout on the east coast vocal scene, but one who really took off once they met with the talents of Philadelphia International! The Gamble & Huff approach really opens up the sound of the group – taking their warm harmonies, and really letting them soar on waves of righteous sound – some of the Philly grooving that was already hitting the charts and the dancefloors – and some sublime, mellow moments that almost point the way towards the new sophistication Philly International would hit in their second wave of greatness. Titles include the massive stepper "Ain't Got Time Fa Nothing", plus "Come To Me", "Sunshine & You", "Party Time Man", "You Got It", and "I Wanna Know Is It Over". LP, Vinyl record album

Instrumentation is relatively jazzy overall – with some tight horn passages that shift between swinging saxes and lighter woodwind moments – a mixture of west coast cool and grittier elements that really does a nice job of marking the generation of the score. Players aren't listed, but we're betting they're some of Hank's hippest associates – and titles include "Flutter's Ball", "Kelly's Tune", "Tooty Twist", "Teen Age Hostage", "White On White", and "Down By The Wharf".

Trunk (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the coolest collections of strangely alluring folk we've ever heard – put together from ultra rare singles and sound library finds by rare groove hunter-genius Jonny Trunk and Martin Green – featuring a batch of always tuneful oddities that roll through lightly jazzy psychedelia and leftfield story songs that are as nearly as strange as they are purely groovy! Fuzzy Felt Folk includes tracks by Basil Kirchin, The Barbara Moore Singers, Claude Vasori and others – most of which are delicately arranged with washes of strings, chimes and beautiful female vocals – numbers from the De Wolfe Sound Library, obscure children's albums, psyche era educational recordings and beyond! Tracks include "I Start Counting (Demo)" by Basil Kirchin (a tune that sounds as fully formed as we can imagine – we'd love to hear a finished version if this is a demo), "Singing Low" and "The Elf" by Barbara Moore Singers, "Tiffany Glass" and "Winds Of Space" by Orriel Smith, "Folk Guitar" by Claude Vasori, "Cuckoo" by Arthur Birkby, "Twinkle Twinkle" and "My Mother Said" by Christopher Casson, "Teddy Bears Picnic" by Piggleswick Folk and more!
