Bruce LaceySpacey Bruce Lacey – Film Music & Improvisations Vol 2 ... LP
Trunk (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... $14.99
Weird and wonderful work from the enigmatic Bruce Lacey – a character whose life and ideals are as compelling as his music! This package is really the first to ever do Lacey justice – and it brings together a rich range of electronic explorations and a few more acoustic improvisations as well – all material that really marks Bruce as being on the forefront of experimentation, especially in the years before the 70s Brit electronicians, even Throbbing Gristle! Lacey's music is stark, but has a sense of humanity – often as spacey as the title promises, but never in a careless way – and always filled with subtle shadings and thoughtful passages. Many of the sounds are electronic, but they also have very unusual sources too – and titles include various parts of "Earth Spirit", plus "Kissing Film", "Experiment 1", "Funky Dance", and "Cycles Of The Serpent (parts 1 & 3)".

✨✧ Edward WilliamsLife On Earth – Music From The 1979 BBC TV Series ... LP
Trunk (UK), 1979. Very Good+ ... $14.99
The wonderful, joyful, and adventurous music from the BBC's 1979 Life On Earth series – composed by Edward Williams – and a very evocative little treasure of nature soundtrack, one that really soars! It's fascinating stuff, solo violin and other orchestrations dance around, come together and splinter away is surprising, sometimes kind of spooky, and at others a lovely and playful way. Includes "Life On Earth Begins In The Sun's Energy", "First Fossils-Blue Greens-Ciliates", "The Sex Life Of The Fern-Spores, Fertilization And Growth-Pine Cones And The Petrified Forest", Nile Crocodile Family-Oral Transport For The Young", "Man-A Choice For The Future Of Life On Earth?" and more.

VariousBritxotica – London's Rarest Primitive Pop & Savage Jazz ... LP
Trunk (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $24.99
Not exotica, but Britxotica – a cool variant of the American postwar love of the sounds of the islands and the jungles – served up here in a really hip batch of tracks from the UK scene of the late 50s and early 60s! Many of these numbers are rooted in jazz, and there's definitely some key jazz musicians in the mix – but you'll also hear lots of the percussion, global instruments, and moody orchestrations you'd find on American records by folks like Les Baxter or Martin Denny – although sometimes with an even groovier vibe, and a nice London twist – similar to some of the Croydon Municipal compilations from Cherry Red! The package is one of the coolest collections we've seen from Trunk Records in a long time – and titles include "Zambezi" by Tony Mansell & Johnny Dankworth, "The Green Eye Of The Little Yellow God" by Harry H Corbett, "Street Of A Thousand Bongos" by Brian Fahey, "Taboo" by Sounds Incorporated, "Follow Me" by Lucille Mapp, "Jungle Drums" by Ted Heath, "The Hat" by Jerry Allen, and "Cha Cha Cha Calypso" by Maxine Daniels.

✨✧ Alan JeffersonGalactic Nightmare ... LP
Trunk (UK), 1986. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A very cool little record – and one that's unlike anything we can think of – kind of a self-contained science fiction story, complete with lots of spacey music, and a bit of narration as well! The album's full of cool keyboard lines – plenty of mini moog and organ, often used in these layered ways that are much more developed, and much more melodic than some of the horror keyboard material at the time – almost as if the keyboard lines are telling part of the story, in between the bits of narration! Alan Jefferson's voice is recorded in this really cool way, too – kind of up-close and compressed alongside the music – a bit like Ken Nordine's later experiments on 80s radio in the US, but way cooler – and although the record has a unified text, it's way more than just a storybook set – and instead comes off like the coolest electronic sound library material of the time. Great package, too – with lots of vivid images, and notes on the whole very unusual project! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Don Byas/Ben WebsterDon Byas Meets Ben Webster ... LP
Prestige/MPS, 1969. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Late work by Webster and Byas – playing here with backing by a European rhythm section that includes Tete Montoliu on piano and Peter Trunk on bass, plus American Albert Heath on drums. The tracks are mostly long and open – with the main focus on letting the two tenor giants solo as much as possible. Tracks include "Caravan", "Sundae", "Blues For Dottie Mae", and "Perdido".

Harvey MandelGames Guitars Play (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Philips/Purple Pyramid, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99 21.98
Guitars playing plenty of games here – easy to do when in the godlike hands of Harvey Mandel – a guitarist rooted in blues, but also with lots of psychedelic inclinations as well! This album's one of Harvey's best as a solo act – and gets some sweet fuzzy production by the legendary Abe Voco Kesh – whose touches help give the record that sort of genre-stepping vibe of the best Bay Area material of the time. Harvey's guitar is firmly in the lead, but there's a bit more vocals on the set than some of the previous Mandel records – and titles include a trippy version of Horace Silver's "Senor Blues", plus "Capurange", "Ridin High", "Honky Tonk", "Leavin Trunk", and a wild stoned version of "Games People Play".

Albert MangelsdorffMainhattan Modern ... LP
Sonorama (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $22.99
Never-heard music from legendary trombonist Albert Mangelsdorff – easily one of the hippest talents on his instrument at the time of these recordings – a musician we'd easily rank right up there with American giants like Bob Brookmeyer or JJ Johnson! Albert's got the modern tones and sense of sound that make him an easy match with Brookmeyer – but he can also swing hard with a current of soul that reminds us of Johnson, especially in ensemble passages! Here, he works with some of the best of his scene, including Hans Koller and Joki Freund on tenor, Emil Mangelsdorff on alto, Gunter Lenz and Peter Trunk on bass, Attila Zoller on guitar, and Dusko Goykovich on trumpet – on recently-discovered recordings from the vaults that feature shifting lineups of players, always in rock-solid, creatively-conscious groups that really make the music sparkle. The whole thing's a key look at German modern before the MPS/Saba years – and titles include "Tower Blues", "Spicy", "Joe Und Joe", "Improvisation Zu Einem Klang", "Hersey Bar", and "Vierd Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Taj MahalTaj Mahal ... LP
Columbia, 1968. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
The first album in a mighty legendary run from Taj Mahal – one of the first generation of blues musicians to really learn to recast their sound for the younger crossover generation! By that, we don't mean that Taj is commercial at all – it's just that he's kind of reclaiming the blues roots that had been filtered into mainstream rock by the late 60s time of this recording – stripping things down, and getting back to basics in a mighty nice way! He gets key help on the record from a young Ry Cooder, and from guitarist Jessie Ed Davis too – and titles include "Leaving Trunk", "EZ Rider", "Dust My Broom", "Diving Duck Blues", "The Celebrated Walkin Blues", and "Statesboro Blues". LP, Vinyl record album
(70s pressing. Cover is lightly stained on the bottom 3 inches, with peeled strips, and a split seam held with clear tape.)

✨✧ Dusko Goykovich with Nathan Davis & Mal WaldronSwinging Macedonia ... LP
Enja/Be! (Germany), 1966. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A legendary German session from the 60s – and a record that really showcases the unusual criss-crossing of modes that was going on in the European scene at the time! There's a very strong MPS vibe here – as trumpeter Dusko Goykovich leads a swinging sextet that includes Nathan Davis on flute, soprano, and tenor – blowing some tremendously soulful reed lines – plus incredible rhythms from Mal Waldron on piano, Peter Trunk on bass, and Cees See on drums. The record's an attempt to bring traditional Macedonian rhythms into a jazz perspective – but with players like these, it swings in a way any Macedonian album never could – damn soulful, and with a great exotic vibe. Davis is especially great, and plays in a soaring modal vein that's similar to his work on his classic MPS sides, and on the records he cut in America in the early 70s. The album's a beautiful session that often get's overlooked because it blends it with the Enja catalog – but it's really more of a record that belongs in an MPS reissue series, and is a great lost groover that's waiting to be rediscovered by the Dusty Groove crowd. Titles include "Macedonia", "Old Fisherman's Daughter", "Jumbo Uganda", "Bem Basha", "Saga Se karame", and "The Nights Of Skopje". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Albert Mangelsdorff & His Frankfurt All StarsRhein Main Jump ... LP
Jazztone/Be! (Germany), Late 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Wicked modern jazz from the German scene of the 50s – a set that's billed on the back as "modern jazz to dance to", but which has a much deeper groove overall! True, the sounds are swinging – but the top-shelf talents in the group really make some magic with their solo work, and the way they come together – often aware of the best tones and timings to make each tune bristle with energy from the very first note! The lineup features the mighty Hans Koller on tenor, baritone, and clarinet – plus Joki Freund on tenor, Emil Mangelsdorff on alto, Albert Mangelsdorff on trombone, Pepsi Auer on piano, Peter Trunk on bass, and Rudi Sehring on drums. Titles are all originals, too – and very fresh at that – and tunes include "Old Hat With A New Rim", "Ending Ad Lib", "Adlon 1925", "You're On Hans", "Sound For Jazztone", "Golabki", and "Beard's Beard". LP, Vinyl record album
