Joe FarnsworthMy Heroes (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2014. New Copy Gatefold ... $18.99
Drummer Joe Farnsworth pays tribute to the greats of the 50s and 60s – Elvin Jones, Roy Haynes, Art Blakey, Max Roach, and others – in a smoking set that features his longtime musical companions Eric Alexander on tenor, Harold Mabern on piano, and Nat Reeves on bass! There's a vibe here that's different than other recent dates from this well-matched team – as the players are definitely trying to skew their sounds differently with each number dedicated to a different drummer – especially Alexander and Mabern, who really match Farnsworth's energy as he changes things up. Titles include "Syeeda's Song Flute", "Two Bass Hit", "Reflection", "George's Dilemma", and "Cute". CD

✨✧ Eric AlexanderRecado Bossa Nova (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2014. New Copy Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A whole new setting for tenorist Eric Alexander – and a great one too! The album's got Alexander in a bossa-styled mode – but less like the facile bossa jazz projects of the 60s than some of the harder-edged ones you'd get from players like Ike Quebec or Charlie Rouse! The sharpness of the rhythms have a good deal to do with the strength of the record – played by familiar Alexander associates Harold Mabern on piano, Nat Reeves on bass, and Joe Farnsworth on drums – but at a level that's very different than their usual accompaniment, which really shows their diversity. Titles include "Recado Bossa Nova", "Corcovado", "Manteca", "Journey", "So In Love", and "Mambo Inn". CD

Miles DavisBirth Of The Cool ... CD
Capitol, Late 40s/Early 50s. Used ... $2.99
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". CD

Henry FranklinSkipper At Home ... CD
Black Jazz/Snow Dog (Japan), 1974. Used ... $8.99
Brilliant basswork from Henry Franklin – one of the hippest cats handling his instrument on the west coast in the 70s – working here with a wicked ensemble of soulful, righteous players! Franlin's bass sets the tone of the record right from the very first note – but the album's a very collaborative effort, too – and features Oscar Brashear on trumpet, Charles Owens on tenor, Bill Henderson on soprano sax, Ndugu Chancler on drums, and Kirk Lightsey on both piano and flute! The legendary David Durrah plays piano on two tracks – his own "Waltz for "Boobuss" and "Venus Fly Trap" – and the Sisters Happiness sing vocals on the latter cut, too. Other titles include "Blue Lights", "Soft Spirit", and a version of Chick Corea's "What Was". CD

Gimmer NicholsonChristopher Idyll (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Light In The Attic, Late 60s. New Copy Gatefold ... $22.99 29.98
A dream of a guitar record from the Memphis scene of the late 60s – recorded as one of the first albums on the Ardent Records label, but never issued at the time – although done in a style that's a lot more like some of the guitar explorations by John Fahey or Robbie Basho on the Takoma label, with maybe some of the trippy qualities Vanguard albums by Peter Walker or Sandy Bull! Gimmer Nicholson never got the due of any of those artists, but his playing here fits right in with their better-known legacies – really evocative, expressive, almost experimental work on acoustic guitar – shimmering with almost ocean-like tones as waves of sound, and with special fingering that's quite different than traditional folk or blues modes. Gimmer uses a bit of delay on the record – again, in ways that are similar to other groundbreaking acoustic records of the time – at a level that seems to only increase the inspiration in the core performance, not get in its way. Titles include "Millennial Harbinger", "Hermetic Waltz", "Venus Cumulus", "Wesak", and "Red & White Light Ship". LP, Vinyl record album

John Phillips, Stomu Yamashta, & OthersMan Who Fell To Earth – Original Soundtrack ... CD
Universal (UK), 1976. New Copy 2 CDs ... $19.99
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.

TelevisionMarquee Moon ... LP
Elektra, 1977. Near Mint- ... $99.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Joe ThomasFeelin's From Within ... LP
Groove Merchant, 1976. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $24.99
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! Titles include "Funky Fever", "Feelins From Within", "Polarizer", "Coco", "Galaxy Dreamin", and "Venus". LP, Vinyl record album

Mayo ThompsonCorky's Debt To His Father (plus bonus 7" single) ... LP
Drag City, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 19.98
The legendary album from Mayo Thompson – pared down with more of an outsider folk rock vibe after the freaky psych of the first couple Red Krayola – and ultimately just as trailblazing! Mayo's voice and skewed songcraft are front and center, though there's piano, organ, fiddle, slide guitar, bass and drums coming in and out, too, but whether or not it was forthright goal, Mayo's weird lyricism is the star of the show, and you can hear the influence this record had on myriad underground rock figures in the decades that followed! Includes "The Lesson", "Oyster Thin", "Horses", "Dear Betty Baby", "Venus In The Morning", "To Black Legs", "Good Brisk Blues", "Around The Home" and "Worried Woman". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes a bonus 7-inch single with "Woof" and "Sergei McUgly".)

Velvet UndergroundVelvet Underground & Nico ... CD
MGM/Polydor, Late 60s. New Copy ... $4.99 9.98
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".

VenturesBeach Party (with bonus tracks) ... CD
El (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $9.99
Not just a beach party from The Ventures, but a whole celebration of instrumental guitar rock – served up in the kind of tight, groovy styles the group always did so well! The core album here is filled with instrumental readings of various 60s dance modes – which makes for some nicely grooving, nicely jaunty titles that really let the group show off their guitar chops – and the CD adds in 22 more bonus tracks from a variety of 60s albums and singles – to make for a guitar party that never lets up throughout! Titles include "Gravy", "Lucille", "Poison Ivy", "The Wah Watusi", "Spudnik", "Hot Summer", "Scratch", "Calcutta", "Venus", "The Intruder", "Silver City", "Ginchy", "2000 Pound Bee", "Driving Guitars", and "Home".

VariousAnother Splash Of Colour – New Psychedelia In Britain 1980 to 1985 (3CD set) ... CD
RPM (UK), Early 80s. New Copy 3 CDs ... $18.99
A really well-done set – one that brings together a very diverse se of tracks, along with a huge booklet of notes – all to focus on the surprising revival of psychedelic sounds in the UK during the early 80s! Unlike the psych revival in the US – which was mostly confined to the paisley underground of the period – the return of fuzz and freak really took a wide array of forms in England in the years after the initial rise of punk – from groups that returned to a core garagey style that was almost pre-psych, to others who maybe tripped out on solos even more than those in the past, to some who fused the best elements of the genre with more contemporary UK pop modes, and others who paved the way for the big Brit indie boom of the C86 years – sometimes even nudging the music surprisingly far in the charts! All those styles are here – and plenty more too – in a mighty nice box set that features 64 tracks in all – with titles that include "Keep Your Voice Down" by The Earwigs, "I Helped Patrick McGoohan Escape" by The Times, "Slow Patience" by The Attractions, "Endless River" by The Brainaic Five, "Do I Have To Be Here" by The Way Out, "Sunspots" by Julian Cope, "Hilly Fields" by Nick Nicely, "Wivenhoe Bells II" by Cleaners From Venus, "Work" by Blue Orchids, "Night Of The Jackal" by Charlie Harper, "Pass Myself" by Third Eye, "Still Dreaming" by Marble Staircase, "A Day Out With Jeremy Chester" by Biff Bang Pow, "Where Are You" by The Primevals, and "Dancing In My Mind" by The High Tide.

The vinyl debut of 14 rare gems from Motown – all cuts that were only dug up much later than the time at which they were recorded – and which made brief appearances on a variety of different CD reissues over the past decade or so – but appear here on vinyl for the first time ever!

VariousOne Track Mind – More Motown Guys ... CD
Kent (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $15.99 19.99
Never-heard songs from the Motown empire of the 60s – all new discoveries from the label's mighty deep vaults – all of them totally great tracks that make for a superb new look at the Detroit powerhouse of soul! Many of these cuts are in a Northern Soul mode – the kind of upbeat groovers that made Motown a huge favorite on the British scene right from the start, and which make the UK Kent label a perfect spot to showcase work this great – with detailed notes on all the tracks, excellent sound quality, and an impeccable ear for choosing just the right sort of tracks to pop a groove like the bigger singles from the label. Some of the cuts here are early recordings by artists who'd later break big, others are more obscure Motown acts – and the package features 24 titles that include "Goose Wobbling Time" by Popcorn Wylie, "I'll Be Satisfied" by Frank Wilson, "Where Are You" by Ivy Jo, "One Track Mind" by Marv Johnson, "Heart To Heart" by Earl Van Dyke, "Head Over Heels In Love With You Baby" by Edwin Starr, "I'm Here Now That You Need Me" by The Fantastic Four, "Imagination Is Running Wild" by The Spinners, "The In Crowd" by Jimmy Ruffin, "Wish I Didn't Love You So" by The Monitors, "The Touch Of Venus" by Marvin Gaye, "I'd Rather Forget" by The Temptations, and "Kissing In The Shadows" by Johnny Bristol.

✨✧ Mladen FrankoAmazing Space (Amazing Space Vol 1/Amazing Space Vol 2) ... CD
Sonoton/GAD (Poland), Late 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

Some of the tunes are familiar, others are originals by Mauriat – and the overall presentation has that nicely lean feel that Paul was bringing to his regular work of the period – a nice change from older overdone holiday modes! Titles include "Entre Le Boeuf Et L'Ane Gris", "Rin Rin", "Silent Night", "Trois Anges Sont Venus", "O Holy Night", "Petit Papa Noel", and "White Christmas". LP, Vinyl record album
