Marvin GayeThat Stubborn Kinda Of Fellow ... LP
Motown, 1963. Sealed ... $14.99
Early genius from Marvin Gaye – a set that's one of his first biggest hit-making albums for Motown, and for good reason too! Gaye's really come a long way here in just a few short years – hitting hard on the album's title hit, with that trademark rasp that would only get stronger and more charming by the end of the 60s. The backings pack a punch toopure Motown 60s soul all the way through, with backing vocals from Martha & The Vandellas – although Marvin's own lead is more than strong enough on its own! Titles include the big title hit "Stubborn Kind Of Fellow" – plus "Hitch Hike", "Get My Hands On Some Lovin", "It Hurt Me Too", "Pride & Joy", and "Wherever I Lay My Hat" – all written by a young Marvin!

✨✧ VibratorsEpic Years 1976 to 1978 (Pure Mania/V2/In Session At The BBC/Live At The Marquee 1977/bonus tracks) (4CD set) ... CD
Epic/Anagram (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 4CD ... $25.99
A huge document of this early UK punk group – in a special set that includes their first two albums, BBC material, a live set, and even bonus tracks too! First up is the classic Pure Mania – the first and best album by the Vibrators, a band that maybe can't really be considered as first wave punk in the purest sense – but who still made a helluva punky racket all the same! The professional studio sheen and lack of angry politics of the record sets Mania apart from some of the more influential albums that came in the months before and after – but the energy on the record is maybe right up there with the best by the Damned, and the group's approach helped set the wheels in motion for the far less hostile new wave scene that was on the way – which then, in turn, helped transform the larger world of rock in the process. Was there ever a better year for stripped down, punchy rock than 1977? Tracks include "Into The Future", "Yeah Yeah Yeah", "Sweet Sweet Heart", "Keep It Clean", "Baby Baby", "Petrol", "London Girls", "Wrecked On You", and more. Next is Vibrators 2, from the following year – a set that still really holds onto all the short sharp shock of the group's debut – and which also never lets the major label setting get in the way of the loud and fast drums and guitars! There's a vibe here that really paves the way for countless UK imitators to come – and at times, there's almost a bit of a Jam sort of catchiness to some of the tunes. Titles include "Automatic Lover", "Public Enemy No 1", "Destroy", "Nazi Baby", "War Zone", "Sulphate", "24 Hour People", and "Troops Of Tomorrow". CD3 features 18 BBC recordings from 1976 through 1978 – three John Peel shows, and one Old Grey Whistle Test performance! Last CD features a smoking live set from the summer of 1977 – 19 tracks, recorded live at the Marquee! Box also features notes – and bonus tracks include live versions of "Stiff Little Fingers" and "London Girls" – plus "Automatic Lover (single)", "Judy Says", and "Pushing Too Hard". CD

Bernstein/Goldings/StewartLive At Smalls ... CD
Smalls Live, 2011. Used ... $6.99
A trio of modern talents, working beautifully together on a set of extended live tracks! The group features guitar from Peter Bernstein, Hammond from Larry Goldings, and drums from Bill Stewart – coming together in ways that remind us of the hipper side of 60s organ combos – those moments when Grant Green and Larry Young really opened things up with a long-flowing groove! There's still a nice undercurrent of soul in the mix, but the rhythms are relatively free and unfettered too – moving forth with energy that might be called modal by some, but which is even less constricted by a simple tag like that – more just pure, beautiful waves of sound from both the organ and guitar. Titles include "The Danger Zone", "Milestones", "Just A Thought", "Molto Molto", and "Chant". CD

✨✧ Dining RoomsNumero Deux ... CD
Guidance, 2001. Used ... $8.99
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". CD

✨✧ MadlibShades Of Blue – Madlib Invades Blue Note ... CD
Blue Note, 2003. Used ... $5.99
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.

MebusasBlood Brothers ... CD
Academy, 1973. New Copy ... $11.99
Beautiful grooves from the Nigerian scene of the 70s – a set of really unique grooves, and the only-ever album from the enigmatic Mebusas! There's kind of a tripped-out feel to some of these tracks – Afro Funk, but taken left of center from the style of Fela – thanks to some weird keyboard bits, odd production touches, and some occasional psychedelic guitar – which really fuzzes things up, and almost creates a cross-cultural vibe that should have gotten this album play up in London, or over in New York! Lyrics are in English, and some of the tracks have a heavy dose of American funk, too – yet others are pure 70s African funk all the way through – a wonderful blend of modes that really keeps things interesting. Titles include "Son Of Mr Bull Dog", "Do You Know", "Grooving Out On Life", "Kwashioko", "Blood Brothers", "Return/Pada", and "I Wonna Do It". CD

Milton NascimentoSerie 2 Por 1 – Minas/Geraes ... CD
EMI/Odeon (Brazil), 1975. Used 2 CD Gatefold ... $16.99
Two classics from Milton Nascimento! Minas is a mid 70s masterpiece from Milton – a record that still has the soaringly ambitious touches of his other work from the time, but which also comes across with a slightly personal feel too! Nascimento's voice is near-perfect – even more spacious and heavenly than before – and the backings have a positive, triumphant quality that's extremely upbeat and bright, yet without sounding commercial at all. There's still plenty of jazzy undercurrents in the music – which was co-written with Fernando Brant, Toninho Horta, and Ronaldo Bastos – and players on the record include Wagner Tiso on keyboards, Toninho Horta on guitar, and Nivaldo Ornelas on flute. There's an additional chorus on some tracks – with vocals by Joyce, Horta, and others – and although the overall sound is impossible to describe adequately, it's a heavenly mix of complicated arrangements, unusual instrumentation, and Milton's fantastic voice. Titles include "Minas", "Idolatrada", "Paula e Bebeto", "Leila", "Ponta De Areia", "Gran Circo", and "Simples". Geraes is one of Milton Nascimento's greatest albums of the 70s! The style here is a bit more subdued than on some of his later work – but in a way that's really majestic and soulful, showing the further development of Milton's unique idiom as he becomes one of the cornerstones of 70s MPB. There's a sense of power here that's very subtle, but which is pure Nascimento all the way – a maturing approach to both songwriting and singing that are light years from the music of Brazil a decade before. Filled with great material – and includes the tracks "Caldera" and "Circo Marimbondo", both of which have a nice swinging groove, plus "Viver De Amor", "Carro De Boi", "Fazenda", "Volver A Los 17", and "Minas Geraes".

Esther PhillipsFor All We Know ... CD
Kudu/King (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $13.99
Smooth and sophisticated grooving from Esther Phillips – a record that really has her shaking off the rag-tag and rootsy modes of earlier years, and gliding sweetly into the mainstream! Phillips' vocals are still as soulful and compelling as ever, but the backings are quite full – penned by Joe Beck, who also plays a fair bit of guitar on the record too – and done with a sound that's in the same mode as David Matthews' backings for other Kudu sides of the time. There's a definite soul-heavy focus going on here – with some clubby touches too – and titles include "Caravan", "Fever", "Pure Natural Love", "Unforgettable", "For All We Know", "Fools Rush In", and "Going Out Of My Head".

Percy SledgePercy Sledge Way/Take Time To Know Her (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Atlantic/Edsel (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
Two rare albums of southern soul from Percy Sledge – back to back on one CD – with bonus tracks too! In case you're not hip, the Percy Sledge Way is a deeply soulful one – rooted in the best 60s southern soul traditions, and carried off to perfection on this near-lost Atlantic set! The album's better even than Percy's debut for the label – recorded by Quin Ivy at his legendary Quinvy studios – with session players that include Muscle Shoals legends Spooner Oldham, Roger Hawkins, and Jimmy Johnson. The style is prime Muscle Shoals at its best – pure, simple, and uncomplicated – served up in a full sound that features backing vocals on a number of tracks, and a great set list that includes the tracks "Dark End Of The Street", "I Had A Talk With My Woman", "My Special Prayer", "Drown In My Own Tears", "You Don't Miss Your Water", and "What Am I Living For" – all redone nicely by Percy. Take Time To Know Her again pairs the legendary vocals of Percy Sledge with classic Muscle Shoals production from Quin Ivy – all wrapped around a host of hip tunes that go way past the easy 60s soul hits! The formula here is similar to that cooked up by Otis Redding on Stax, but it goes perhaps a few steps more – relaxing into its own confidence, and hitting an easy, open approach to the material that's neither too "stock", nor too slick. And although Otis first started the groove, Percy really helps push it forward strongly on this record – by bringing a deepening spirit and new sophistication to the music that would help it thrive greatly into the 70s. Many tracks are written by the team of Dan Penn and Spooner Oldham, including "I Love Everything About You", "Out Of Left Field", and "Feed the Flame" – and other titles include "Sudden Stop", "Baby Help Me", "Cover Me", "Between These Arms", and "High Cost Of Leaving". Bonus tracks include "Hard To Believe", "Behind Every Great Man There's A Woman", "Little Girl", "It Can't Be Stopped", and single versions of "Sudden Stop", "It's All Wrong But It's Alright", "Between These Arms", and "Just Out Of Reach".

UnwoundFake Train ... LP
Kill Rock Stars/Numero, 1993. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99 19.98
The fantastic debut of Unwound – a record that nicely hides behind a pastiche of images pasted on an old Tom Jones album cover – and which has a sound that's equally mysterious in its own sort of way! At a time when the grunge generation were maybe getting too full of themselves, these guys came in and reminded us that the best music could often be made with heads hanging down – the kind of focus on layered guitars that Sonic Youth birthed in the 80s, with maybe some of the darker lyricism of the UK post-punk years, but filtered through more of the DIY underground of the post-Homestead generation. If that's too many references, we apologize – but there's a lot going on in the textures within – as you'll hear on cuts that include "Lucky Acid", "Dragnalus", "Honourosis", "Pure Pain Sugar", "Gravity Slips", "Star Spangled Hell", "Ratbite", and "Feeling$ Real".

✨✧ Walter Scharf/Leslie Bricusse & Anthony NewleyWilly Wonka & The Chocolate Factory ... LP
Paramount, 1971. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wonderfully trippy record – every bit as trippy as the film – and if you remember that mad psychedelic trip from your childhood, you probably remember it as pretty darn trippy! The record nicely follows the film, and includes some key dialogue too – which made the whole thing a crucial cultural artifact in the days before DVDs and videotape, and which still makes it pretty weird, hearing all this stuff away from the screen. Walter Scharf arranged and conducted the tracks – based on the original score by Bricusse & Newley – and titles include "Charlie's Paper Run", "The Candy Man", "Oompa Loompa", "The Wondrous Boat Ride", "Wonkavator", "The Bubble Machine", and the sublime classic "Pure Imagination".

✨✧ Wadada Leo SmithProcession Of The Great Ancestry ... CD
Nessa/Chief, 1983. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An overlooked gem from trumpeter Wadada Leo Smith – an early 80s session, but one that we'd rank with some of his most-together work ever! The album's a mixture of spare modes and some surprising group elements – a set that often has Smith blowing beautifully on trumpet or flugelhorn, alongside the vibes of Bobby Naughton and percussion of Kahil El Zabar – the latter of whom makes a strong, spiritual appearance here – really helping to shade in some strong sounds to Leo's music. Naughton's vibes are great too – very angular and chromatic, with the sharpness of Bobby Hutcherson's avant work of the mid 60s – and one track features John Powell on tenor, and two more have Louis Myers on guitar – bringing in these weird harmelodic bluesy tones which then accompany vocals from Smith! Titles include "Nuru Light", "The Flower That Seeds The Earth", "Jah Jah Is The Perfect Love", "Procession Of The Great Ancestry", and "Third World Grainery Of Pure Earth". CD

✨✧ Donald ByrdAt The Half Note Cafe Vol 2 ... LP
Blue Note, Early 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the greatest Donald Byrd albums ever – a smoking live performance spread out over two different records – all with some of the tightest, most grooving work that Byrd ever recorded in his early years on Blue Note! Part of the strength of the set is the group – as Don's trumpet is alongside the brilliant baritone of Pepper Adams – who plays with the deftness of a tenor, but with a richer, fuller sound – and the group also includes the great Duke Pearson on piano, who has this way of comping out tunes that are soulful, but richly lyrical too. The group's completed by Lex Humprhies on drums and Laymon Jackson on bass – and titles on this second volume include a stunning long version of Pearson's "Jeanine", plus the tracks "Pure D. Funk" and "Kimyas". LP, Vinyl record album

Argo, 1961. Used ... Out Of Stock
An amazingly beautiful set of tracks from Art Farmer – playing here with superb accompaniment from a young Harold Mabern on piano, in a laidback quartet format that really lets Art open up! Art's playing is fresh and creative throughout – never too over the top, and always blown with that subtle genius that he was bringing to his work in the 60s – a pure exercise in understatement, with a quality that seems to make the notes fall out of the air by themselves. Rhythm is by Tommy Williams on bass and Roy McCurdy on drums – and the choice of material includes Tom McIntosh's great composition "The Day After", plus Art's "Punsu" and "Kayin" – and versions of "Change Partners", "Blue Room", and "Nobody's Heart".

Festival, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A great look at the influence of psychedelia on funk music – served up here in territory that starts with electric Miles Davis and prime Jimi Hendrix – then takes off into great new space of its own! The collection's awash in freak and fuzz, but also has plenty of heavy drums and basslines, too – served up by a range of soulful artists who were really blowing their minds and expanding their musical horizons at the end of the 60s – taking the same kind of chances that rock artists were in their album-long journeys – with results that are equally impressive! Familiar tracks are mixed with lesser-known gems – and titles include "Mary Don't Take Me On No Bad Trip" by Fugi, "Red Hot Mama" by Funkadelic, "Cherrystones" by Eugene McDaniels, "Patience Is Virtue" by William S Fischer, "Liar" by The Meters, "Thrills Of Love" by Warlock, "Willie Nelson (take 3)" by Miles Davis, "California Dreamin" by Eddie Hazel, "Like A Rolling Stone" by The Undisputed Truth, "Thank You For Talkin To Me Africa" by Sly & The Family Stone, "Maggot Brain" by Funkadelic, "Doriella Du Fontaine" by Lightnin Rod & Jimi Hendrix, "Talkin Loud & Sayin Nothin (parts 1 & 2)" by James Brown, "Down By The River" by Buddy Miles, and "In A Silent Way (live)" by Santana. 2CD set features bonus tracks not on the vinyl – including "I Feel Bad" by Pure Hell, "Brown Rice" by Don Cherry, and "If You Got It You'll Get It" by The Headhunters.

Cool organ lines, wonderful keyboards, and lots of other great bits – all stepping out in a double-length set that's completely sublime – and maybe some of the best work we've ever heard from the mighty Piero Piccioni! The score is as sexy as you'd guess from the cover – and definitely has those bossa and jazz elements from the Morricone generation of Italian soundtrack work, too – yet it also has these interesting offbeat touches that are pure Piccioni right from the start – that great ear for odd tunings and unusual phrases that really keeps things interesting all the way through, and which makes the record so sublime from both a musical perspective and a sonic one! 2CD set features over two hours of music from this rare score – a number of which feature haunting wordless vocals from the lovely Edda Dell'Orso.

✨✧ VariousOld Town Doo Wop Vol 5 ... CD
Old Town/Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The long-overdue fifth volume in this amazing series of Doo Wop from the legendary Old Town Records – a real treasure trove of harmony soul, filled with a fair bit of previously unreleased work! Although not always at the top of the charts, Old Town was one of the best east coast imprints for doo wop back in the day – and, as illustrated on previous volumes in the series, the label had a great approach to the music that really let the singers stand strongly on their own, and express themselves freely. Many of the numbers here are far from the too-poppy modes that were hurting other doo wop at the end of the 50s – and instead, the tunes often have a stripped-down, upfront vocal approach – very pure and unfettered, especially on the unreleased numbers. CD features a whopping 28 tracks in all – with titles that include "All Alone" by Bobby Adams & The Serenaders, "Just To Be" by The Intruders, "Country Boy" by The Symbols, "Dreaming Is No Good" by Peggy Farmer & The Harptones, "Lonesome Lover" by The Solitaires, "We Three My Echo My Shadow & Me" by The Sharps, "A Hum Diddley Do" by The Capris, "The Last Round Up" by The Cleftones, "This Is The Night" by The Vocaleers, and "My Heart's Desire" by The Earls.

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

Vampi Soul (Spain), Late 60s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $18.99
Andres Landero has a pretty wild look on the cover here – and the sound of his music is equally wild, too – a very raw, rootsy approach to cumbia – very much in the most hard-edged style of the genre, with a quality that often feels more ancient than the 70s recording dates of most of these numbers! This is cumbia at its purest form – all rhythm, even on the melodic instruments – which often include accordion, used in these pulsating waves that groove right along with the massive basslines and percussion. Andres sings on most tracks, in a mode that's as rhythmic as the music – and the set features 20 titles that include "La Cigarrona", "Mara Del Carmen", "Yo Amaneci", "Las Mellas", "La Sanjacintera", "La Pava Congona", "La Mochila Tercia", and "Cumbia En La India".

✨✧ MC LyteLyte As A Rock ... LP
First Priority/Atlantic, 1988. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Lyte's first LP, and a hip hop classic that needs no introduction from us. Lyte raised the bar for female rappers on this late 80s album with her mic skills and lyrical finesse that took female MC's into a whole new realm, beyond "Roxanne" answer tracks. She takes on Roxanne Shante on "10% Dis", a classic battle track that sparked a great answer cycle in its own right. And the production, mostly by Audio Two is pure minimalist hip hop beatmaking, while the King Of Chill comes correct with the dopest side stick in the history of programmed beats on "Paper Thin", and Prince Paul goes nuts with the horn stabs on one of his earlier beats, "MC Lyte Likes Swingin'". 10 tracks in all, this LP also includes "I Cram To Understand You", "Kickin 4 Brooklyn", "Lyte As A Rock", "Lyte Thee MC", "I Am Woman", "Lyte Vs.

✨✧ Sidney BechetBechet Souvenirs (with On Parade & Ambiance Bechet) ... CD
Vogue/Sony (France), 1951/1952. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Some of the purest work to ever capture the genius of Sidney Bechet were his recordings in Paris – where the respectful record labels allowed the reedman just the right sort of space for his amazing tone and heartfelt emotion! These sides are a bit late in Bechet's career, but really represent him perfecting his approach, too – never overdone, never gimmicky, and not even trying for any easy cliches that might please the overseas audiences – and instead just right on the money, with a perfect sense of economy in his solos, and a mindblowing tone that will grab you from the very first note on the album! Bechet blows soprano sax throughout – with a tone that was a huge influence on the Coltrane generation – and works with French musicians on all sessions – the first of which features a group led by clarinetist Andre Reweliotty, one more date with clarinetist Claude Luter, and the last a set of "all stars" that includes Guy Longnon on trumpet. CD features 24 tracks in all – material from three different 10" LP releases – with tracks that include "Apex Blues", "Darling Nelly Gray", "Sleepy Time Gal", "Le Marchand De Poissons", "Pattes De Mouche", "Ghost Of The Blues", "Blues", "Girl's Dance", "Because Of You", and his classic "Petite Fleur".

Black Saint (Italy), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used 7 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Pure brilliance from Don Pullen – arguably some of the best recordings ever made by the adventurous pianist – packaged here together in one incredible collection! Pullen was already a key force in the American underground by the time of these recordings – but really took everything to the next level with the Black Saint/Soul Note label – finding a way to focus his energy, and really realize his musical vision like never before – and, in a way, hitting heights that he might never hit later in his career either! Each album here is a treasure on its own – and together, the set is a hell of a package – one that features Pullen's piano in the company of players like Chico Freeman, Joseph Jarman, or Sam Rivers on reeds; Olu Dara on trumpet; Fred Hopkins on bass; Bobby Battle on drums; and Don Moye on percussion – as well as two great records that feature Don alone at the piano. The set features the albums Capricorn Rising, Healing Force, Warriors, Milano Strut, The Magic Triangle, Evidence Of Things Unseen, and The Sixth Sense – all of them great! CD
(All albums come in paper sleeve replicas of the original album covers!)
