Dudley MooreBedazzled – Original Soundtrack (with bonus CD) ... LP
Trunk (UK), 1968. Sealed (reissue)... $19.99
A fantastic soundtrack for an incredibly groovy film – a landmark British comedy that received some sublime musical treatment from Dudley Moore – who was one of the stars of the movie! Moore's a surprisingly great jazz pianist, and provides a rich blend of jazz instrumentals, groovy larger cuts, and a few wild vocal tracks with a mad mad sound! The album's well-remembered for the fuzzy-breakbeat classic "Bedazzled" and Peter Cook's vocal on the mad rocker "Love Me" – and other tracks are a perfect blend of styles that recall the best of Henry Mancini or Neal Hefti from the same time – the best 60s blend of jazz, mod, and loungey styles. Titles also include "The Millionaire", "Moon Time", "Strip Club", "Sweet Mouth", and "Cornfield", a lively jazzy groover! Especially incredible in this Trunk LP version is the bonus CD that it comes with – featuring uber-rare, improvised promotional radio spots made by Moore & Cook just days before the film's release – titled Peter Cook & Dudley Moore Cordially Invite You To Go To Hell!

✨✧ Basil KirchinBasil Kirchin Is My Friend ... LP
Trunk (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Beautiful sounds from overlooked British composer Basil Kirchin – a talent who's finally been brought to light by the Trunk Records label, who've done a great job of digging up some of his more obscure work, and finally getting it the attention it deserves! This package is a sidebar to those releases – as it's a special collection, done as part of a Basil Kirchin Festival, and features a fair bit of unreleased material, alongside some tracks from other Trunk releases, as well as a few snippets of conversation with Kirchin too! As with the man's full oeuvre, the sounds here run from dreamy and melodic, to spacey and electronic, to moody and improvised – but all with an understated charm that makes a journey into the mind of Kirchin well worth taking. Titles include "Charcoal Skets 2", "Kitchen Kirchin Excerpt 1", "Bells", "Assignment K3", "Primitive London 2", "Shuttered Room Effects Tape", "Silicon Chip", "Birds & Bangs", "The Dice Is Cast", and "The Mutations 5".

✨✧ Klaus Weiss Rhythm & SoundsTime Signals ... LP
Selected Sound/Trunk (UK), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Fantastic work from German drummer Klaus Weiss – an artist with a strong legacy in jazz, but one who was also open to other styles too! Weiss is best known for his funky jazz work on labels like MPS – and some interesting contributions to prog – but he also cut this rare album of sound library tracks in the late 70s, and the whole thing is a funky delight throughout! The overall approach has Klaus drumming nice and funky underneath – while over the top, strange melodies and rhythms weave in and out on moog, electric piano, and other groovy instruments. Some tracks sound like early electro, others sound like great little riffs lifted off of 70s cop show soundtracks, and the whole thing is quite funky all the way through. The tracks are mostly all under 2 minutes long – and the record features 25 nice little gems with titles like "Space Waltz", "Kind Of Bossa", "Heavy Weights", "Different Strokes", "Time Signals", "Walk Easy", "The Hunters", and "Drums Around", which is a killer echo-heavy break track! Nice drums all the way through! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousStrictly Britxotica – Palais Pop & Locarno Latin ... LP
Trunk (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
That couple on the cover's looking pretty darn groovy – and the sound of the record is definitely one to match – the sound of postwar Britain starting to let its hair down, and open up to a lot of new musical ideas! Like the previous volumes of Britxotica, this collection offers up tracks recorded in England, but which draw strong musical inspiration from points around the globe – a bit of Cuba in some rhythms, touches of other Caribbean instrumentation at points, a dash of Pacific exotica, and even some heavier African elements too – all served up in tight, jazzy numbers that never would have been recorded in the London of the previous decade. Titles include "Mambo In Old Lisbon" by Joe Loss, "Dream Talk" by John Warren Orchestra, "Papa Loves Mambo" by Johnson Brothers, "Cha Cha Charlie" by Martinas & His Music, "Besame Mucho" by John Graven Quintet, "Goodness Gracious Me" by Dave Lee, "Americano" by Eddie Calvert, "Cerveza" by Victor Silvester, and "Green Turtle" by Phil Tate.

✨✧ VariousTropical Britxotica! – Polynesian Pop & Placid Jazz From The Wild British Isles ... LP
Trunk (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The Britxotica sound is back in wonderful form – that fantastic postwar meeting of musical modes that happened every bit as much on the London scene as it did in the US! In fact, given the Caribbean and colonial ties of British culture, we might almost make the argument that some of these tunes have more of an authentic imprint than American exotica of the time – although "authentic" is hardly the name of the game here – as the music really gets its charms from the way that the sounds of the islands are reworked for the dancefloors of Soho at the end of the 50s. Titles include "Heatwave" by Geoff Love, "Mangoes" by Lucille Mapp, "Hawaiian Honeymoon" by Frank Weir, "Tropical Mirage" by Ron Goodwin, "Run See Jerusalem" by George Melly & Kenny Graham, "Stormy Weather" by Betty Smith, "Milk From The Coconut" by Johnny Gentle, and "Quiet Village" by Martinas & His Music.

Volker KriegelSpectrum ... LP
MPS (Germany), 1972. New Copy ... About November 15, 2017
The funky fusion classic from guitarist Volker Krieger – finally issued in a great CD edition! Easily one of Krieger's best albums, Spectrum was remarkably cut in just two days at MPS Studios in 1971 – with a group that includes Peter Baumeister on drums, Cees See on bongos and percussion, Peter Trunk on bass and cello, and John Taylor on Hohner electric piano. It kicks of with the amazing track "Zoom", a seriously funky maelstrom of groovy funky guitar and percussion that mixes in washes of sitar and Eastern effects here and there for a really trippy effect! The album doesn't try to duplicate the frenzy whipped up by the opener right away, and finds a much more relaxed groove in tracks like "So Long, For Now", "More About D", "Ach Kina", and "Instant Judgement" before flailing away in the exciting closer "Strings Revisited". One of the great ones from MPS – and a hugely influential one to the progression of 70s jazz funk. A really groovy record! LP, Vinyl record album

Taj MahalTaj Mahal ... LP
Columbia, 1968. Very Good+ ... $19.99
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

✨✧ 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
