Alan JeffersonGalactic Nightmare ... LP
Trunk (UK), 1986. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $19.99
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

Dudley MooreBedazzled – Original Soundtrack (with bonus CD) ... LP
Trunk (UK), 1968. New Copy LP & CD (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! LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes CD of ther mega rare Bedazzled radio spots album 'Peter Cook & Dudley Moore Cordially Invite You To Hell'.)

Klaus Weiss Rhythm & SoundsTime Signals ... LP
Selected Sound/Trunk (UK), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
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

VariousTropical Britxotica! – Polynesian Pop & Placid Jazz From The Wild British Isles ... LP
Trunk (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $23.99
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.

✨✧ John CameronPsychomania – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Trunk (UK), 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A wild biker horror soundtrack – and some really moody stuff! The score is making its first-ever appearance here on record – and is a beautiful batch of short, weird tracks written by Brit jazz man John Cameron! Oddly, though, there's just about no jazz at all on the record – even though the musicians include Brit jazz luminaries Harold McNair, Tony Carr, and Bill LeSage. Instead, the tunes are spare, stark, and spooky – often using organ, guitar, and a bit of fuzz in the mix to create some weird echoey and pulsating sounds. In a way, the feel's a lot like primo Italian horror work of the early 70s – although perhaps a bit darker – and this really nicely done reissue also includes some cool snippets of dialogue from the film! A really great sonic relic of a film you'll probably never get a chance to see – and filled with 32 mad and wonderful tracks! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Delia Derbyshire & Elsa StansfieldCircle Of Light (green vinyl pressing) ... LP
Trunk (UK), 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really unusual project from electronic music legend Delia Derbyshire – sounds that were created for a film of abstract photographic images, but which work beautifully here on their own! Partner Elsa Stansfield contributes a lot of core elements to the music – Derbyshire works in sounds that are even more abstract and beautiful than her better-known music for the BBC Radiophonic Workshop – and together, they create something that we'd be more likely to call a "sonic painting" than just an ordinary record album! The set also features a bit of spoken introduction by Pamela Bone – whose photographs formed the core of the images – but overall, most of the proceedings are instrumental, and come from the team of Derbyshire and Stansfield.

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

✨✧ Keef Hartley BandHalfbreed ... LP
Deram, 1969. Very Good Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
A brilliant little set from Keef Hartley – a blend of jazz, blues, and rock that's really tremendous – quite different than other efforts of its sort at the time, with a gritty edge that really makes the record stand up strongly over the years! Keef's on drums, and has a great way of rumbling up the bottom of the tunes – a feature that's always made his records a favorite of beatheads – and vocals here are from Miller Anderson, who definitely has a touch of Eric Burdon in his approach. Other instrumentation includes organ, harpsichord, and some wickedly fuzzy guitar – plus occasional brass from a section that includes Harry Beckett and Henry Lowther, the latter of whom did arrangements. Titles include "Born To Die", "Just To Cry", "Think It Over/Too Much To Take", "Just To Cry", "Leavin Trunk", and "Sinnin For You". LP, Vinyl record album

Tete MontoliuPiano For Nuria ... LP
MPS, 1968. Near Mint- ... $24.99
A great pianist and a great rhythm section – two factors that make this one of the best albums ever from Spanish pianist Tete Montoliu! The session's got a tightness that some of Tete's other records are missing – a style that still allows him to display his free command of the keys, but which also holds him into a structured groove that produces even more intensity. Tete's working here with Peter Trunk on bass and Albert Tootie Heath on drums – both excellent players who bring plenty of their own spirit to the session, and work well in a three-pronged approach to the tunes that has plenty of melody coming from the drums and bass – and a fair bit of rhythm coming from Montoliu's heavy left hand as well! Titles include some great originals – like Trunk's "Tranquillogy" and "Visca L'Ampurda" – as well as Montoliu's "Blues For Nuria", and versions of "Stablemates" and "I Surrender Dear".

✨✧ BeatlesYesterday & Today ... LP
Capitol, Mid 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great American-only album from the Rubber Soul generation – the last one made specifically for the US market because of the different release patterns in the US and UK – with a number of their greatest songs of the period! Features a bunch of classics, and it ultimately holds together better creatively than some of their other US-only LP – but it also encapsulates a fascinating period in Beatles history, summing up end months of their middle period, very soon to segue into more psychedelic territory. Includes "Nowhere Man", "Drive My Car", "Dr Robert", "Act Naturally", "Day Tripper", "And Your Bird Can Sing", and "If I Needed Someone". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Taj MahalTaj Mahal ... LP
Columbia, 1968. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ 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".
