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)".

Alan JeffersonGalactic Nightmare ... LP
Trunk (UK), 1986. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
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

✨✧ Palmer RockeyRockey's Style Movie Album ... LP
Trunk (UK), Mid 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A soundtrack of sorts, but a set that feels more like some private press collection of singer/songwriter material – in this case, all put together by the enigmatic Palmer Rockey, for use in his legendary self-made movie! Rockey's a hell of a character – one whose story is told in the colorful notes – and that personality really comes through in these tunes – which are a mix of offbeat rock and country modes, but done with a very dark sensibility – one that ostensibly was designed to accompany his movie's satanic story, but which has a very weird, spooky feel all on its own. The set's one of those legendary little records that was hardly circulated at the times, but which has gone onto become famous in the hands of a few key folks – and although we're not normally seduced by sets like this, we can promise that the record's definitely got a compelling appeal that holds up even more strongly on repeated listenings. Titles include "That's Real Cool Baby", "Love is Deep Inside", "Scarlet Warning", "Rockey's Rock", "Feelings Of Love", and "Scarlet Moves". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousBritxotica – London's Rarest Primitive Pop & Savage Jazz ... LP
Trunk (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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.

Great notes too – really getting at Lacey's enigmatic role in UK music! LP, Vinyl record album

Dusko Goykovich with Nathan Davis & Mal WaldronSwinging Macedonia ... LP
Enja/Be! (Germany), 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
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

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 Mangelsdorff & His Frankfurt All StarsRhein Main Jump ... LP
Jazztone/Be! (Germany), Late 50s. New Copy ... $18.99
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".

✨✧ Albert MangelsdorffMainhattan Modern ... LP
Sonorama (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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
