Tru Thoughts (UK), 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A long-awaited follow up to one of our favorite compilations ever released by Tru Thoughts, and certainly one of the most straight-up fun – in which all stars from the label's roster of underground funk, soul and global groove eclecticists put their own spin on a great batch cover tunes! Quantic puts a cumbia spin on Dre & Snoop, La Grima turns Nirvana's moody grunge into a grimy dub trip, Youngblood Brass Band takes on the Rufus & Chaka Khan and more – in a set that truly transcends any novelty cover tune shtick you might be expecting – really paying legitimate tribute to the material by giving it a fresh spin! Includes "Nuthin' But A G Thing (Dre En Cumbia)" by Quantic Y Su Conjunto Los Miticos Del Ritmo, "Lithium" by La Grima, "Ghost Town" by Hot 8 Brass Band, "Who's That Girl?" by Harleighblu, "I'm The Man That Will Find You" by Alice Russell, "Ain't Nobody" by Youngblood Brass Band and "I Feel Love" by Fingathing feat Jesca Hoop. 9 tracks on the vinyl.

✨✧ Hot 8 Brass BandVicennial – 20 Year Of The Hot 8 Brass Band (with bonus download) ... LP
Tru Thoughts (UK), 2015. New Copy 2LP ... $21.99 23.99
A tremendous tribute to one of the greatest brass bands on the Nola scene – a group who celebrate their 20th anniversary this year, and who are still going strong! The Hot 8 Brass Band have always been one of the funkiest groups on the New Orleans scene – and they've continued to win us over with their great releases for the Tru Thoughts label – records that take an old school street brass approach, and fuse it with some harder, funkier currents in the process – but all without ever losing any sort of Crescent City roots. And despite any fears you might have about tourist cliches, these guys are definitely far from that – as their approach is super-fresh, super-unique, and widely appealing to most fans of other funky styles too. The album features older recordings, remixed and reworked with sublime sound – and titles include great covers of "Sexual Healing", "Papa Was A Rolling Stone", and "Just My Imagination" – plus "Royal Garden Blues", "Get Up", "What's My Name", and "New Orleans After The City".

Quantic Presents The Western TransientNew Constellation ... LP
Tru Thoughts (UK), 2015. New Copy Gatefold ... $31.99 35.99
A tremendous new project from Quantic – a set that has him moving into spiritual jazz territory, with all the depth and care he brought to previous funk and Latin projects! The music here is a mix of electric and acoustic modes – played by Will Holland on guitar with a group that also includes tenor, flute, trumpet, keyboards, moog, and some mighty nice percussion – all used in these warmly flowing ways that are totally wonderful – like some lost, underground 70s set on a tiny label by a local combo – performed with an understated brilliance that really holds us rapt! For a guy who could come on strong at times, Quantic seems to do even more by laying back a bit – and really letting the group energy flow on songs that include "Jumble Sale", "New Constellation", "Bicycle Ride", "The Orchard", "Mirzan", and "Latitude". LP, Vinyl record album
(Beautiful vinyl pressing – limited, and in a heavy book-style cover!)

Sun Ra & OthersMy Way Is The Spaceway – Space Poetry Vol 4 ... LP
Norton, Early 60s. New Copy ... $12.99
An incredible chapter in the rich career of the legendary Sun Ra – tracks that blend together music and spoken word passages – the latter of which are usually in support of his unique philosophy of the cosmos! The titles here really give an idea of the thoughts within – "The Music Is Like A Mirror", "My Way Is The Spaceways", "The Music Is A Sound Image", and "The Music Is A Vibration" – all very long tracks that are spoken by Ra in this very powerful voice – with a presence that we don't always hear from him this well on record, often set to backings that feature reed work on flute or tenor sax, mixed with a bit of light percussion. These aren't just readings, or poetry mixed with jazz – but a great glimpse at the truly theatrical side of Sun Ra's presentation, served up beautifully here in this special package.

✨✧ FreebornePeak Impressions ... LP
Monitor, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the few straight rock records ever issued on the mostly-folk Monitor Records label – a great 60s outing from Freeborne, a group with a sound that's as tripped-out as you might expect from the cover! Instrumentation is heavy on organ and guitars, both acoustic and electric, but there's also some cool percussion too – and interesting use of recorders, in a way that comes across with an ocarina-like charm! Vocals are somewhat soft, but have a dark undercurrent – and there's a really great folk-into-psyche sort of feel to the whole thing. Titles include "Images", "Land Of Diana", "But I Must Return To Frenzy", "Inside People", "Yellow Sky", "Peak Impressions & Thoughts", and "Visions Of My Own". LP, Vinyl record album
