Galactic ExplorersEpitaph For Venus ... CD
Mental Experience (Spain), 1974. New Copy ... About January 15, 2018
Wonderfully free-wheeling sounds from this hip German trio – maybe not one of the biggest groups of the Krautrock generation, but one who definitely earn their name with the music on this album! The set's got a long-spun approach to the tunes, which are all quite long – layers of keyboards that include Fender Rhodes, minimoog, Hammond organ, "Lunatron", and other electronics – mixed with some slight effects, and no other instrumentation at all – which makes for a very evocative, all-instrumental blend of keyboard sounds and styles – as they spin out beautifully in ways that really build a bridge to the sky! Titles include "Lunarscape", "Ethereal Jazz", and "Venus Rising". CD

Mark WynterVenus In Blue Jeans – The Pop Years 1959 to 1974 (3CD set) ... CD
RPM (UK), Late 50s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 3CD ... $9.99
A huge look at British pop singer Mark Wynter – an artist who's always been remembered for different projects here and there, but who's never fully gotten coverage like this! Wynter's a heck of a talent – one who never broke on these shores, but who gave the UK an early blue-eyed pop rocker at the end of the 50s, who then matured into a more adult singer as the 60s went on – moving through a shifting array of styles with effortless ease! A number of tracks feature super production from the great Tony Hatch – who helped Wynter hit his heights in the 60s – but even without Tony's help, the sound of the music is pretty darn great overall. And while some of Mark's work has been reissued before, this set really opens up the field – to only only include classics for Pye Records, but also Decca material too – and a whole not of unreleased tracks too! There's a massive 95 tracks in all – plus a big booklet of notes – a heck of a deal at this price. CD

✨✧ Boney MNightflight To Venus ... LP
Atlantic/Hansa, 1978. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A nice bit of space age disco fantasy from Boney M – a set that's got a few more electronic touches than some of the group's other records, but which still continues in a straight ahead poppy vein! There's a sound here that's arguably a bit more sophisticated than before – especially on some of the rhythms, which almost hint at Bohannon like complexity at the bottom. There's almost a bit more club appeal than you might expect – although other tunes are definitely more the stuff of hotel lobby dancefloors than warehouse parties in New York. Titles include "King Of The Road", "Nightflight To Venus", "Voodoonight", "Brown Girl In the Ring", "Heart Of Gold", and the hit version of "Rivers Of Babylon". LP, Vinyl record album

Roland HannaApres Un Reve ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2002. Used ... $18.99
Shame about the cover, but cheescake nudie image aside, the album's got all the poise, class, and grace you'd expect in some other classics from pianist Roland Hanna – a player who already attained majesty in his music, long before he started adding "Sir" to his name! There's a fair bit of classical numbers here, used as surprising vehicles for jazz expression by Hanna – not the usual "jazz meets classical" vibe that stays very faithful to the structure of the original compositions – but more just a basic inspiration for improvisational melodies, played by the trio in a way that has Roland's piano strongly out in the lead, with subtle accompaniment from Ron Carter on bass and Grady Tate on drums. Titles include "Prelude", "Like Grains Of Sand", "Serenade", "Apres Un Reve", "Based On Gustav", and "Going Home". CD

✨✧ Steve KuhnQuiereme Mucho ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2000. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Somebody might want to tell the model on the cover that nude sunbathing on a field of rocks can be tricky business – yet you'll hear none of that pain in the music of Steve Kuhn inside the cover, as the date's a perfect illustration of his lyrical genius on the piano! Many tunes have Latin roots, and Kuhn plays them with a subtle sense of drama – none of the overblown emotion you might usually find associated with renditions of the cuts, and instead a soulful swing that's a bit different than some of his other records, but which definitely ranks right up with them in terms of greatness. David Finck is on bass and Al Foster is on drums – and titles include "Duerme", "Quierme Mucho", "Tres Palabras", "Besame Mucho", and "Andalucia". CD

One For All (Eric Alexander, Jim Rotondi, et al)No Problem ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2003. Used ... $18.99
No problem at all, given that this combo's one of the cookingest contemporary lineups we can think of! All players here are great – hence the title of the group – and the mighty Eric Alexander's always a treat on tenor, blowing beautifully alongside Jim Rotondi on trumpet, Steve Davis on trombone, David Hazeltine on piano, Ray Drummond on bass, and Joe Farnsworth on drums! The three-horn frontline does some really great things at times – but the setting also leaves plenty of space for very personal solo expression too – and Hazeltine's a surprising groover who really seems to spur everyone on with his rhythms. The set begins with the very aptly titled "Our Father Who Art Blakely" – then moves onto cuts that include "No Problem", "Whisper Not", "One For All", "Time Off", "Ugetsu", and "Moanin". CD

✨✧ Lee KonitzJazz Nocturne ... CD
Venus (Japan), 1994. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great straight set from the later years of Lee Konitz – one that has the altoist swinging wonderfully in the company of pianist Kenny Barron! There's a soulful undercurrent to the record that really shows Barron's hand in the sound of the session – that mature groove that Kenny always brings to his own trio records, and his even better albums with a horn player – but part of the swing also comes from the talents of James Genus on bass and Kenny Washington on drums. Titles include "Misty", "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To", "Body & Soul", and "Alone Together". CD

✨✧ One For All (Eric Alexander, Jim Rotondi, et al)What's Going On? (CDr on demand pressing) ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2007. Used ... Out Of Stock
Rock-solid work from One For All – easily one of the greatest straight jazz combos going, thanks to some tremendous tenor work from Eric Alexander, sweet piano work from David Hazeltine, and snapping rhythms from drummer Joe Farnsworth! Other group members are great too – and the sextet features Jim Rotondi on trumpet, Steve Davis on trombone, and John Webber on bass – all working here at the height of their powers, and also coming across with a bit more sharpness and soul than even other recent sessions on the Japanese Venus label. Arrangements are by all members of the group – and the tunes are long, and roll out beautifully with a solidly soulful feel – no surprise, given that most of them are covers of classic soul tunes from the 70s. Tracks include a great remake of "Golden Lady", plus "What's Going On", "How Sweet It Is", "Let's Stay Together", "Reasons", "For The Love Of You", and "Betcha By Golly Wow". CD

✨✧ Jerry Weldon & Massimo FaraoWhat's New ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the more beautiful, more subtle settings we've ever heard for the tenor of Jerry Weldon – a very relaxed ballad session cut with pianist Massimo Farao – done with crystal-clear sound, and a very late nite vibe! Over the years, Weldon's developed a really tremendous voice on the tenor – a mode that hearkens back to old giants of mid-century, but which also never does so in any sort of slavish, or easily-retro style – so that although Jerry's blowing at their level, he still really brings a lot of his own phrasing to the horn! This can be especially true on the mellower numbers, which can still have Weldon moving with the deft changes he brings to his work in a more driving setting – and while the piano of Massimo Farao is a perfect balance in terms of modesty and simple tone, it's really Jerry's work on the set that's blowing us away. Titles include "What's New", "They Can't Take That Away From Me", "My Ship", "The Gypsy", "Grace", and "For All We Know". CD

✨✧ Eric AlexanderJust One Of Those Things ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A totally wonderful setting for the tenor genius of Eric Alexander – a freewheeling trio, which is a format we're not sure we've ever heard him in before – really stretching out in an amazing way, with the sense of of imagination that we've always loved in his music, but with a depth that takes him farther than most of his usual recordings too! We're not sure what happened, but there's a new sort of edge in Eric's horn – one that might well come from the sublime work of Dezron Douglas on bass and Neal Smith on drums – but which might just be Alexander deciding to take off and really blow us away – which he does throughout the set, with a sense of spirituality that we haven't heard from him before. The whole thing's amazing – and titles include "Wise One", "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To", "You Say You Care", "Beautiful Love", "Bessie's Blues", "Russian Lullaby", and "We've Only Just Begun".

✨✧ Dezron DouglasSoul Jazz ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Bassist Dezron Douglas is always a name we look for on a record – and although this set is one of the few he's ever given us as a leader, his playing and approach never let us down! For the set, Douglas revisits a number of older soul tracks, but in a way that's completely instrumental – much more complicated than the 60s soul jazz modes you might expect from title, with a wonderfully changing sense of rhythm and flow that's abetted by work from Donald Brown on piano and Willie Jones III on drums – both working at a level that matches their own great records as leaders. Saxophonist Jimmy Greene blows both tenor and soprano sax on the album – adding an important voice over the top – and titles include "Hey There Lonely Girl", "I Want You", "Tears Of A Clown", "Cupid", "Ooh Baby Baby", "Having A Party", and "So Amazing".

Venus (Japan), 1992. Used ... Out Of Stock
An all-ballad album from Pharoah Sanders, but one that's still plenty darn great – and blown with all the depth of soul you might expect from his classics! The tunes are mostly familiar, but taken at a really easygoing, open sort of level – somewhat similar to the ballad work that Archie Shepp cut once he started coming back inside at the end of the 70s – still with some sharper sounds around the edges, and an approach to the tunes that's informed by a previous history of farther-reaching, more experimental sounds. The rest of the group features William Henderson on piano, Charles Fambrough on bass, and Sherman Ferguson on drums – and titles include "Light At The End Of The World", "In A Sentimental Mood", "Body & Soul", "Too Young To Go Steady", and "Misty".

Atmospheric electronic pop from Air – one that really steps up the spacier avant pop touches, after some of more ethereal, almost symphonic touches on both their proper albums and soundtrack work in the preceding few years. Lots of trippy electronic touches on this one, but still with the delicate vocals and layered bits of guitar and other strings, for a nice blend of sounds. Solid work from the always adventurous duo. Includes "Venus", "Cherry Blossom Girl", "Run", "Universal Traveler", "Mike Mills", "Surfing On A Rocker", "Another Day", "Alpha Beta Gaga", "Biological" and "Alone In Kyoto". LP, Vinyl record album

There's two sorts of heavenly bodies on the cover – but the real charms of the record lie inside, as the set's overflowing with incredible early theremin recordings! The album features spacey orchestral settings arranged by Warren Baker, and conducted by Andre Montero – plus fantastic work on the "electro theremin" by Paul Tanner – a different variation on the incredible post-war electronic instrument! The "electro theremin" was Tanner's own creation, and it works on a cool sliding principle that creates a lot of weird spacey dipping, turning, and soaring effects.

BrokebackIllinois River Valley Blues ... CD
Thrill Jockey, 2017. New Copy ... $13.99 15.99
Some of the warmest, best instrumental music yet from Doug McCombs's Brokeback – maybe a bit less abstract than most earlier Brokeback efforts – but just as alluring, even while working with more a immediately engaging sound. McCombs is on guitars here with multi-instrumentalist James Elkington, Pete Croke on bass and Arief Sless-Kitain on drums & percussion, and occasional atmospheric vocals by Amalea Tshild. Illinois River Valley Blues manages to bring in more identifiable jazz, rock and soundtrack-y influences, while still wholly distinctive – and the way McCombs is inspired by lesser traveled points on the map of his (and our own) home state has always been a fascinating aspect of his work in Brokeback – never more so than on this one. Includes "Ride Ahead And Light The Way For Me", "Cairo Levee", "The Canyons Of Illinois", "Andalusia, IL"., "Spanish Venus", "Ursula", "The Stroller's Memorial", "Night Falls On Chillicothe" and more.

Mladen FrankoAmazing Space (Amazing Space Vol 1/Amazing Space Vol 2) ... CD
Sonoton/GAD (Poland), Late 70s. New Copy ... $16.99
A pair of totally wonderful albums from sound library composer Mladen Franko – both originally released by the Sonoton label in Germany, and presented here as a single CD! Franko's less well-known than some of his bigger European contemporaries, but has a similarly deft hand with a groove in this setting – an ability to focus quickly on a key rhythm part and hip instrumental twist, with an especially strong approach to keyboards – which range from Rhodes-y groovy to spacey moogy! Mladen played all the instruments himself, but the overall feel is more in a classic sound library studio mode – and although both records were issued in 1980, they have a sound that's much more mid 70s overall. Titles include "Venus & Aquarius", "Back From Wonderland", "Sound Safari", "Wind In Your Hair", "Midnight Party", "Yellow Baloon", "Melancholy Girl", "Lazy Daisy", "Leading Star", and "Clown Town".

Sublime sound library work from mid 70s Australia – one of the greatest records ever from soundtrack genius Sven Libaek, done in collaboration with a host of the greatest Aussie jazz players of the time! The groove here is laidback, but funky – almost dreamy at times, in the manner of a sweet Italian soundtrack – but also with a flowing groove that seems to draw both from bossa nova and west coast jazz of previous years, yet turn these influences into a whole new sound entirely. Most of the tunes are small combo, and feature reeds from Don Burrows and Erroll Buddle, guitar from George Golla, and vibes from the amazing John Sangster – all wrapped up by Sven with an approach that's almost effortless at times – never too forced, nor too slick – and a fair bit different than music of this type coming from other hemispheres in the 70s! Titles include "Solar Flares", "Stella Maris", "Lift Off", "Destination Omega 3", "Space Walk", "Meteoric Rain", "Quasars", "No Flowers On Venus", and "In Nebular Orbit". LP, Vinyl record album

You might remember Nina Miranda for her great work with Da Lata years ago – but since that time, she's only evolved even more as an artist – to a point where she's really finding her voice here in a freshly creative way! The record's got a very compelling mix of acoustic and electric elements – some of the beats you might expect, but also mixed with more live percussion, and even some field recordings and other elements that really create a deeper texture of sound next to Nina's lovely vocals. The record also features help from some great talents from the underground – including Kassin, Chris Franck, Xaver Fischer, and others who've helped bridge the gap between Brazilian roots and 21st Century expression. Titles include "Marsh Mellow Dreams", "Whole Of London", "Megalopolis", "The Cage", "Silken Horse", "Capoeira 2020", "Play", "Amazonia Amor", "Soundtrack To Venus Night Boat", and "The Surfer". CD

Pacific Jazz (Japan), 1957. Used ... $6.99
Gerry Mulligan meets up with a great array of 50s modernists here – in specially setting dedicated to all Mulligan-penned compositions! Although a radical player himself on the baritone sax, Gerry also added something strong to the 50s jazz catalog with his great tunes from the early days – gently modern numbers that slowly became standards over the years, thanks to respect from other players. The best of these tracks are showcased here – played by Mulligan with a sax section that includes Zoot Sims on alto and tenor, Al Cohn on tenor and baritone, Lee Konitz on alto, and Allan Eager on alto and tenor. Rhythm is by the piano-less section of Freddie Green on guitar, Henry Grimes on bass, and Dave Bailey on drums – and titles include "Venus De Milo", "Revelation", "Sextet", "Turnstyle", "Four & One More", "Crazy Day", and "Disc Jockey Jump".

A real turning point in the career of singer Mark Murphy – a great session for Capitol from 1960, done with creative arrangements from Bill Holman, and a sound that opens up strongly from Murphy's Decca years! In a way, the record is one of the first times that Murphy really got to do what he wanted to on record – and working with Holman, he really opens up in the inventive, expressive modes that would mark the Murphy sound of later years – a style that was light years ahead of other male singers in jazz! Some tracks have small combo backings, others have big band, and a few feature support from a larger chorus – but throughout the entire set it's clear that Mark's not just a run of the mill pop singer on Capitol, and can sing here with a level of jazz that few others on the label ever matched! Titles include "Firefly", "Lonesome Town", "Catch A Falling Star", "All The Way", "Venus", "Send For Me", and "Personality". LP, Vinyl record album

David Bowie's on the cover, but the music here is from a much wider array of musical sources – in a surprising array of instrumental and vocal tracks that really live up to the madness of the famous film! The key contributor here is John Phillips – who not only gives us some excellent vocal tracks that are in the manner of his Wolfking album, but also handles a few instrumental numbers that are pretty compelling – and offset by more offbeat percussion tracks by Stomu Yamashta, who's the other key artist on the original material! There's also some familiar pop moments from Louis Armstrong and the Kingston Trio – but most of the music is original. Titles include "America", "Jazz", "Rhumba Boogie", "Space Capsule", "Desert Shack", "Window", "Alberto", "Liar Liar", "Jazz II", and "Bluegrass Breakdown" by John Phillips; "Poker Dice", "Wind Words", "Mandala", "One Way", "Memory Of Hiroshima", and "33 1/3" by Stomu Yamashta; "Venus" and "Mars" by The Bournemouth Symphony; "Love Is Coming Back" by Genevive Waite; and "Blueberry Hill" by Louis Armstrong.

Music On Vinyl, 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $22.99
One of the coolest groups to ever come from the Dutch scene of the 60s – a group who were raised on the same heady mix of soul and blues as the UK beat groups of their generation – but one who were also willing to open up into some trippier touches too! Case in point is the very cool use of sitar or organ a few tracks here – never in a way that's overdone, but which brings in a sweet Eastern flair next to some of the grittier guitars – which themselves are also pretty darn great, thanks to the group's chunky rocking groove! Lyrics are all in English, and you've no doubt heard their classic "Venus" – served up here alongside other great cuts that include "Boll Weevil", "Acka Raga", "Love Machine", "California Here I Come", "Poor Boy", and "Love Buzz".

Elektra/Record Store Day, 1978. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $33.99 35.98
The rare, long unreleased Television live album! Recorded at San Francisco's Old Waldorf in the summer of 1978, on the one-and-only US tour the band ever did as a headliner in their original 70s run, it's a revelatory and all too rare treasure. Television's well-known legacy as a mainstay in the NYC club scene of the punk era precedes just about any discussion of their work, but relatively few people ever had the opportunity to hear that early live side of the band, especially given the iconic status of their immaculately recorded Marquee Moon and underrated Adventure LPs. So it's no wonder Live At The Old Waldorf has sold out immediately the couple of times it's ever been issued! Rawer and a little buzzier, heftier and more angular then the studio recordings, but very much the same band. Amazing stuff! Includes "The Dream's Dream", "Venus", "Foxhole", "Careful", "Ain't That Nothin'", "Friction", "Marquee Moon" and cool cover of The Stones' "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction". LP, Vinyl record album

The masterful debut of Television! Marquee Moon is indisputably one of best records to come out of late 70s NYC . It's truly a singular achievement – one of the few records that seems to be on every rock literati's list of the all-time-bests – and actually deserves every bit of praise it gets! The guitars and vocals are bristling with all the post-punk energy of the lower east side in the 70s – but stands out for the off kilter melodicism and the extraordinary guitar heroism, courtesy Tom Verlaine. A genuine classic! Includes "See No Evil", "Venus", "Friction", "Marquee Moon", "Elevation", "Guiding Light", "Prove It" and "Torn Curtain". CD

The Ebony Godfather is grooving here with a set of fuller backings – sweet clubby funk, arranged and conducted by Brad Baker (of B Baker Chocolate Company fame) – all as a showcase for Joe's sweet work on flute and tenor sax! There's a fair bit of keyboards on the tunes – played by Pat Rebillot and Barry Miles – and Steve Gadd's playing the drums on the date, which helps the rhythms keep a bit of an edge, even amidst the larger backing. Some cuts have backing chorus vocals, in a style used on other Thomas albums – and although definitely touched by a bit of disco fever, the album's still got a jazzy element too – like some of the crossover club sessions on the Kudu label from the 70s!

Delicate dissonance, bruised beauty, and hazy noise pop – all in one of the best rock albums ever made – the amazing first album from the Velvet Underground and Nico! The album's the stuff of legend – and for good reason, too – a surprising slab of vinyl that barely set the world on its ear when first issued back in the mid 60s – yet a record that's gone onto have an influence felt for decades to come – arguably one of the most important rock records of all time. There's a really sinister edge to the record, even when things are sweet – and the range of subject matter and handling here is brilliant – from the dream pop slice of heaven "Sunday Morning", the melodic bitterness of "Femme Fatale", the massive White Light-esque freakout "European Son", and the sublime "Heroin" – quite possibly the inspiration for generations of drug use to come. The whole thing's a classic – with wonderful vocals from both Nico and Lou Reed – and titles include "Venus In Furs", "Run Run Run", "Black Angel's Death Song", "I'll Be Your Mirror", and "All Tomorrow's Parties".

✨✧ Alessandro Alessandroni, Marco Di Marco, Franco TaLa Natura E L'Uomo ... LP
Nereide/Intervallo (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautiful little record, and one that's got way more heart and soul to offer than you might expect from the rather understated packaging – which hides an album that's full of sparkling 70s keyboard magic! The music here is by a mix of Italian soundtrack and jazz talents – the latter of whom bring some sounds that are especially groovy, served up on both acoustic piano and lots of sweet electric keyboards! The great Marco Di Marco contributes four numbers – including two takes on "Long Drink", "Prima Giochi", and the tune "Ivana" – a nice bossa nova track. Other titles include "Aria Aperta" by Franco Tonani, "Venus" and "Bassa Marea" by Alessandro Alessancroni, "Pescatori" by Kema, and "Protozoi" by Amedeo Tommasi. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Miles DavisBirth Of The Cool (Dimensions In Jazz) ... LP
Capitol, Late 40s/Early 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Legendary work from Miles Davis – large group sessions that virtually define the "cool" in cool jazz! The work's quite different from Davis' earlier bop sides with Charlie Parker – and show a distinct influence from modernists like Gerry Mulligan (who is on the recordings) and from the experiments of the Tristano school. Miles is less the leader than the creative visionary – as all players come together in a perfect blend of sound, perfectly polished, and with a very dark edge. Titles include "Jeru", "Move", "Venus De Milo", "Budo", and "Deception". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover is lightly stained and wavy.)

✨✧ DeodatoPrelude/Deodato 2 ... CD
CTI/Vocalion (UK), 1972/1973. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pair of classics from Deodato – back to back on a single high-quality CD! First up is Prelude – a legendary album from the 70s funk scene – and one of the crowning achievements of keyboard maestro Eumir Deodato! Deodato got his start during the bossa years of the 60s – where his sophisticated charts were already enough to make his career a landmark – but in the following decade he picked up the Fender Rhodes, and really took off in a great new direction with classic records like this! The set's a wonderful blend of larger charts and jazzy soloing – with sublime Rhodes lines from the leader, plus a mix of acoustic and electric instrumentation in the best CTI mode – underscored by percussion from both Ray Barretto and Airto. The features Deodato's remake of "Also Sprach Zarathustra" into the funky "2001" – soaring with Fender Rhodes lines that set a new standard for the instrument, with a funky undercurrent that few would have expected for the tune. Other tracks are nice too – and include a great bossa-y version of "Baubles Bangles & Beads", plus "Spirit Of Summer", "September 13", and "Carly & Carole". Deodato 2 is filled with funky keyboards galore – and one of the greatest records ever from this legendary Brazilian jazz talent! The album follows nicely off Deodato's Prelude classic for CTI – and like that one, this set's built on long-flowing tunes that rise and fall with a wonderful sense of rhythm – a sublime electric piano groove that's quite different than anything Deodato recorded before – and possibly never realized this perfectly again after his CTI years. Other players include Stanley Clarke on bass, Billy Cobham on drums, and Hubert Laws on flute – and titles include the massive Latin funk track "Super Strut", plus the tunes "Pavane For A Dead Princess", "Skyscrapers", and a great version of "Nights In White Satin". Plus, this CD reissue features 3 bonus tracks – "Venus", "Do It Again", and "Latin Flute"! CD
(Hybrid Super Audio CD pressing – works on standard CD players!)

Lenny WhiteVenusian Summer ... LP
Nemperor, 1975. Very Good ... $6.99
Drummer Lenny White was one of the strongest talents on the kit to emerge during the 70s fusion years – a player who was every bit as tight and powerful as Billy Cobham, and maybe even more far-reaching in his style – as you might guess from the cosmic image on the cover! The album's got more than enough propulsion to soar to the skies – with White on massive drums – working with a killer batch of musicians that includes Patrick Gleason on keyboards and electronics, Onaje Allan Gumbs on acoustic and electric piano, Jimmy Smith and Larry Young on organ, Larry Coryell and Doug Rodriguez on guitars, and Tom Harrell on flugelhorn – all working together in a razor-sharp mix of acoustic and electric elements! Titles include "Mating Drive", "Venusian Summer", "Chicken Fried Steak", and "Prince Of The Sea". LP, Vinyl record album
