UK maestro Geoff Love's recasting of famous themes from military films – including some classics from the 50s and 60s, given a slightly lighter reading here as a great device that still lets you enjoy the famous themes – yet without all the heavy drama of the original soundtrack!

Sun RaNuclear War ... CD
Unheard Music Series/Atavistic, 1982. Used ... $18.99
Long-overdue reissue of one of Ra's greatest moments! The song "Nuclear War" is to Ra's 80s career what "Space Is The Place" was to his 70s one – a bona-fide hit, played with a catchy groove, and a chorus that was a great hook into new audiences at the time. It's got a political lyric, and a back/forth rhythmic approach that shows that the Arkestra could still hit a good groove when they wanted to! The other tracks on the album have a more straightforward approach – heading into Ra's straighter 80s side, a mix of traditional jazz tunes performed with organ, synthesizer, tenor, alto, baritone, trumpet, and percussion. There's still plenty of oddness in the mix – and Ra's work on organ and synth give the record an eerie edge that gets a bit funky on other tunes. Titles include "Nameless One No 2", "Celestial Love", "Drop Me Off In Harlem", and "Retrospect". CD

Spoils Of WarSpoils Of War (180 gram pressing – with bonus 7" single) ... LP
Wah Wah (Spain), Late 60s. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $39.99
Totally amazing sounds from this obscure Illinois group – a very experimental outfit formed at University of Illinois, and named after an instrument by Harry Partch! With Partch as a touchstone, these guys definitely have one ear cocked towards some of the more experimental sounds of the period – including the groovier composers who were mixing lots of electronics into their music – but they also come across with a tighter, more compact approach that's got plenty of psych as well – often on these long instrumental passages that feature great workouts on guitar and keyboards. The group often uses live sound manipulation to really alter more familiar styles – and there's elements to the record that are light years ahead of most other combos of the time – especially in the Midwest! Titles include "Dear Belgium Boy", "Astor", "Bomb Song", "Victoria Falls", "For Helene", "E Thing", "Walk In Walk Out", and "Morning Be Merciful". Great 2LP reissue includes bonus 7" single, and insert too! LP, Vinyl record album

Roy ThomasSuperman – The War Years 1938 to 1945 (hardcover) ... Book
Chartwell Books, 2015. New Copy ... $15.99 24.99
Superman takes on the Nazis, and a whole host of other wartime foes as well – in this beautiful oversized art book, filled with classic stories from the early years of the hero! Superman first hit comic books right before WWII began, so the range of stories here is right in keeping with the Golden Age growth of the hero – presented by comics historian Roy Thomas, who also wrote a bit of text to frame the oversized presentation of these great stories from the early years of Action, Superman, and Worlds Finest comics! The book features some great cover images, too – and is over 300 pages, on heavy paper stock, full color, and hardcover. Book

Roy ThomasWonder Woman – The War Years 1941 to 1945 (hardcover) ... Book
Chartwell Books, 2015. New Copy ... $9.99 24.99
A great look at the early years of Wonder Woman – served up in stories that are all set during WWII, a conflict that first gave birth to the character in 1941! The comics here are all from the wonderfully creepy early days of Wonder Woman – when William Marston was penning the strip, and filling it with subtle messages on female companionship and bondage – themes that take on an even weirder twist in the company of Nazis and Japanese spies! Comics historian Roy Thomas put together the book from carefully chosen issues of Wonder Woman, Comics Cavalcade, and Sensation Comics from 1941 to 1945 – and the book also features some text from Thomas that illuminates the period too. Book is over 300 pages, full color, oversized, and nice and heavy! Book

✨✧ Underground SetWar In The Night Before (with download – including bonus tracks) ... LP
Tickle/Cinedelic (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
A totally great set by this obscure Italian combo – a group who work like a psychedelic band, but who come across much more like a funky sound library ensemble – from the heavy drums at the bottom, to the mix of sweet organ lines and fuzzy guitars in the grooves! The whole album's instrumental – and has a really bold sort of sound – thanks in part to the talents of maestro Gianfranco Reverberi, who's in the ensemble, and has a really great way of isolating individual instruments within the larger context of the record! Because of this, you'll find some strongly pronounced elements that would have been lost in the fuzzy haze of more typical psych or prog – and the instrumental approach gives even more focus to the well-played instrumentation – which includes some nice lines on Hammond and flute. Titles include "War In The Night Before", "Car Driving", "Cool Paradise", "Hard To Go Up", "Oblivion", "Libutum", "Hot Paradise", "Hopeless Train", and "Useless Obsession". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes download – with six bonus tracks originally issued as 7" singles on Radio Records – including "Arcipelago", "Motor Road Underground", and "Emisfero".)

Sweet modern soul with a sound that would get picked up on years later by the LA G-Funk scene. The album's produced by War's Far Out production team – and it's got a smooth sound that's mixed with moogy keyboards and compressed instrumentation on the best cuts. Some tracks are a bit too funky, but the mellow ones are very tasty. Includes the excellent track "Summer Love", plus "Cream City", "Magic Night", "Lonely Princess", and "Jungle Desire".

John AddisonTorn Curtain ... LP
Decca, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $4.99
From what we remember about the story of this film, the original score was supposedly written by Bernard Herrman, then discarded – although we're not sure if that story's actually true. Whatever the case, John Addison does a surprisingly nice job with this one – and his music for the film is one of the better things about this oft-forgettable cold war thriller. The main theme has a nice dark little melody – one that shows up in the better numbers on the album – and although the overall approach is dramatic, it's handled with a rare flourish that makes it stand alone fine away from the film. Titles include "Premonitions Of Trouble", "Michael & Sarah", "Escape On The Bus", "Pi Bus Theme Variations", "Sarah Alone", and "Love Theme From Torn Curtain", sung by the Johnny Mann Singers.

Warner, 2016. New Copy ... $12.99 13.99
Wu Tang mastermind and all around modern renaissance man RZA teams up with Interpol vocalist Paul Banks...and it works. Wow! Considering the pros and cons of the contemporary musical landscape, one of the major pros is the cross-pollinating possibilities of what would've seemed crazy in the past. Still, the inspiration that might make a solid single happen with disparate figures rarely extends to an album – which is what makes Banks & Steelz such a leftfield win. RZA rhyming over hip hop/synth pop hybrid production and sharing vocals and production duties with Banks – with guest appearances by fellow Wu vets Meth, Ghost and Masta Killa, plus Kool Keith and Florence Welch. Includes "Giant", "Ana Electronic", "Sword In The Stone" feat Kool Keith, "Wild Season" woth Florence Welch, "Conceal", "Love And War" with Ghostface, "Can't Hardly Feel", "One By One", "Gonna Make It" and "Point Of View" with Method Man & Masta Killa.

Barbara & The BrownsCan't Find Happiness – The Sounds Of Memphis Recordings ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
The first-ever full length collection of work by Memphis singer Barbara Brown – a vocalist who appeared both as a solo act, and with her sisters – on a variety of singles for labels like Cadet, Atlantic, Tower, and MGM in the late 60s and early 70s! Barbara's got a deep, rich voice that's clearly schooled in gospel, but pointed towards more secular ends – an approach that's very much in keeping with the best late 60s wave of soul from Atlantic Records, and which is carried off here with a sharpness and precision that's simply mindblowing! Why Brown never scored bigger is a real mystery to us, because these tunes come off like the cream of the crop of southern soul at the end of the 60s – not just obscurities for obscurity sake, but some of the highest level of soul a female soul singer could hope for at the time! The 20 track package features great notes on Brown's career, and on the tunes – a decent portion of which are previously unissued, too. Titles include "Man Around The House", "Can't Find No Happiness", "Pity A Fool", "Big Party", "Watch Dog", "You Don't Love Me", "Plenty Of Room", "I'm Gonna Start A War", "Things Have Gone To Pieces", "Great Big Thing", "Play Thing", and "If I Can't Run To You I'll Crawl".

Alfred BesterDemolished Man ... Book
Gollancz (UK), 1952. New Copy ... $5.99 12.99
A postwar sci-fi classic from Alfred Bester – a hell of a writer, and one with a long legacy of great work in both comic books and magazines! Yet The Demolished Man is just one of a few novels that Bester ever gave us – a stunning story about murder in the 24th Century, at a time when the police are telepaths, and nobody's secrets are their own! Given the early 50s time at which the book was written, there's a lot of Cold War paranoia at play – yet mapped out into a world that's beautifully fantastic, as only the Bester sense of imagination could provide. There's also a subtle undercurrent of wit – another one of Bester's trademarks – especially within the corporate milieu of the main character. 250 pages, softcover. Book

Quite possibly the greatest moment of genius ever from Black Sabbath – and a genre-changing record that influenced generations! The group are at their lean, raw best here – free from any cliches at all, and working in an incredibly heady brew of fuzzy guitar, romping bass, and dark drums – all topped by the instantly recognizable screech of the young Ozzy Osborne! Guitarist Tony Iommi virtually redefines rock use of the guitar with this record alone – and the Oz follows suit with some of the creepiest vocals set to record ever.

Brecker BrothersDetente ... LP
Arista, 1980. Sealed ... $7.99
An overlooked Brecker Brothers gem from the end of the 70s – easily one of their most soulful sets from the Arista years, and a record that's got way more lasting power than the Cold War reference of its title! The Brecker's are still rooted in jazz here, but definitely step out with plenty of soul in the mix too – vocals from DJ Rogers, Carl Carlwell, Luther Vandross, and others – all of whom really add a lot to the set. The presence of these vocals provides a nice variety – especially given that only about half the tracks have some singing – and in a way, this addition holds back some of the too-jamming tendencies that the Brothers could have – keeping them strongly in the groove throughout! Other players include George Duke on keyboards, Hiram Bullock on guitar, Steve Jordan on drums, and Airto on percussion – on titles that include "You Ga Ta Give It", "Not Tonight", "Tee'd Off", "Squish", "Baffled", "Dream Theme", and "I Don't Know Either".

Jack BruceHarmony Row ... LP
Atco, 1971. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $14.99
A surprisingly wonderful solo album from Jack Bruce – one that's got a tighter approach to the songwriting, and done in a strange jazz-rock-folk style that at times recalls the early work of Roy Wood, or some of the later work of Tim Hardin. The album's got a strangely personal feel – as Bruce stretches himself a bit more on the lyrics, and goes for a few passages that are more intimate than one might expect from other work. The result is possibly his most cohesive album overall, and a real treat to anyone with ears for a solid jazz rock outing! Titles include "Folk Song", "Morning Story", "There's A Forest", "Can You Follow", "Victoria Sage", "Letter Of Thanks", and "Post War". LP, Vinyl record album

A beautiful mixing of modes – Jim Capaldi's Traffic-bred, London-styled vocals, and the sweet southern soul grooves of Muscle Shoals – all wrapped together with a sound that's even tighter than Capaldi's debut album! Jim's a big edgier here overall – both in the way he delivers the vocals, and in the lyrics of the tunes – and his singing's underscored perfectly by help from Jimmy Johnson on guitar, Barry Beckett on piano and organ, David Hood on bass, and Roger Hawkins on drums – all of whom create the right sort of warm Muscle Shoals vibe to make Capaldi's music sound wonderfully soulful. Steve Winwood plays a bit of guest organ on the set, and may well help with backing vocals – and titles include the funky "Low Rider" (different than the War tune) – plus "We'll Meet Again", "Summer Is Fading", "My Brother", "It's Alright", and "Yellow Sun".

The hazy, ominous and pulp cinema Wu sound is trotted out with continued relevance and strong rhymes from Cappa – with the title track, "Slang Editorial", "Run", "Blood On Blood War", "Supa Ninjaz", "Dart Throwing", "Young Hearts", MCF, "South Of The Border", "Everything Is Everything", "Black Boy" and more. 16 tracks in all, with a majority of the production handled by RZA with his Wu Elements.

The Man In Black behind the Iron Curtain! The show was recorded live in Prague in 1978 – finding Johnny backed not only by his impeccable Tenessee Three, but it also features the chorus from The Johnny Cash Show – making it much more than a typical concert. The cultural gravity weighs strongly on the performances, without weighing the set down. A warmly charismatic concert from waning near end of the Cold War era. A great setlist of Cash classics, including "Ring Of Fire", "I Still Miss Someone", "Sunday Morning Coming Down", "I Walk The Line", "Casey Jones, "Hey Porter", "Wabash Cannonball", "City Of New Orleans", "I Still Miss Someone" and more.

A seminal session from one of the greatest large groups ever! This one captures the Clarke-Boland ensemble at the peak of their creativity – swinging hard in that tight firey way that was virtually their trademark during the late 60s. The players are a top-shelf mix of European and American jazz legends – coming together without ego, without attitude, and having a hell of a time working through groundbreaking arrangements from leader Francy Boland. Soloists include Sahib Shihab, Tony Coe, Dusko Goykovich, Ronnie Scott, Jimmy Woode, and Benny Bailey – and the tracks are all short, but swing like a mofo, with plenty of solo action in the mix. Titles include "Love For Sale", "November Girl", "All Through The Night", "Lullaby Of The Leaves", and "Bei Dir War Es Immer So Schon". CD

Titles include the hit "Should I Stay Or Should I Go", the classic "Rock The Casbah", and the tracks "Ghetto Defendant", "Car Jamming", "Know Your Rights", "Straight To Hell", and "Inoculated City".

Delmore BrothersFreight Train Boogie – King Recordings 1946 to 1951 ... CD
King/Ace (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Sublime sounds from one of the best harmony duos in the hillbilly business – Delmore Brothers Alton and Rabon, sounding completely wonderful here on an early selection of singles cut for King Records! The music's definitely got some of the harmonies and acoustic elements from more bluegrass-oriented acts of the time – but there also almost seems to be a touch of King Records blues in the approach, too – given the way the electric guitar can be used to sharpen the edges of the music, and harmonica lines can help give the vocals a special sort of inflection – especially when they take off on their solos. The blend is great – almost a pre-war mode, from the early 78rpm days when musical genres weren't so ironed-down – and in a way, singles like these also really point the way towards some of the mixing of modes to come a few years later in the rockabilly years. Titles include "Blues You Never Lose", "Muddy Water", "Mobile Blues", "Boogie Woogie Baby", "Trouble Ain't Nothin But The Blues", "Kentucky Mountain", "Used Car Blues", "Weary Day", Blues Stay Away From Me", "Brown's Ferry Blues", and "Take It To The Captain". (And in case you're wondering, there's lots of tracks on this set that aren't on Ace Records' "acetate" collection of Delmore Brothers recordings – and vice-versa!) CD

Mercury/Esoteric (UK), 1969. New Copy ... $15.99
Very cool work from this unique Welsh group of the 60s a combo who might have started out in beat group modes, but really go for something different on this unique set! Eyes Of Blue have this spacious style that almost recalls the Moody Blues at times – but they're also much more gritty and soulful as well – almost as if they hit territory between the Moodies first record and their ambitous later works, but also draw on wider musical references that have them covering a Django Reinhardt tune on one track, and throwing in some classical references on another. Titles include the cut "Merry Go Round", which they did for a film with Quincy Jones – plus "The Light We See", "Souvenirs", "Little Bird", "Door", "Spanish Blues", "Chances", and "After The War". CD also features the bonus single "Apache 69". CD

Ella Fitzgerald5 Original Albums (Swings Lightly/Sweet Songs For Swingers/Ella In Berlin/Hello Dolly/Whisper Not) (5CD set) ... CD
Verve (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 5 CDs ... $22.99
Ella Fitzgerald way past the Songbooks – in a set of five different albums that display all the groovy talents she brought to her years at Verve Records! First up is Ella Swings Lightly – a record that has Ella getting some great jazzy backings from Marty Paich – on titles that include "Little White Lies", "You Hit The Spot", "Little Jazz", "720 In the Books", "Knock Me A Kiss", and "My Kinda Love". Sweet Songs For Swingers has Ella singing to light arrangements by Frank DeVol – nothing fancy, but a good set of tunes that are perfect for the lovely style that Ella was hitting back in the 50s. Tracks are short, uncomplicated, and very nicely swinging – even in the gentler moments – with titles that include "Let's Fall In Love", "Sweet & Lovely", "Moonlight Serenade", "I Remember You", and "East Of The Sun". Ella In Berlin is quite a popular live album from Fitzgerald – recorded in Berlin at the height of the cold war years – featuring a famous recording of "Mack The Knife" that almost blew away Bobby Darin's hit with the cut! The album's nicely free of some of the stodginess of some of Ella's Songbook albums from the same time – with light and jazzy backing by a group that includes Jim Hall, Paul Smith, Wilfred Middlebrooks, and Gus Johnson. Titles include "Mack The Knife", "How High The Moon", "Too Darn Hot", "Gone With The Wind", "Misty", and "Summertime". Hello Dolly is a definite shot at the pop market by Ella Fitzgerald – quite possibly recorded as a follow-up to the 60s success of former singing partner Louis Armstrong, who's referenced nicely in Ella's rendition of the title hit! The first 4 tracks on the set were done in the UK, under the leadership of arranger Johnny Spence – and the remaining 8 were done back on Ella's home turf, with familiar backings by Frank DeVol, and an overall sound that's a bit more lush than those on the British numbers. Includes a hit reading of "Can't Buy Me Love", plus "Hello Dolly", "The Sweetest Sounds", "My Man", "Volare", "The Thrill Is Gone", "How High The Moon", and "Lullaby Of The Leaves". Whisper Not is a groovier batch of tunes than usual for Ella – especially compared to most of her Verve recordings! Ella's getting backed here by Marty Paich and orchestra – in a mid 60s swinging mode that has a nice degree of kick to it, and which shows that Ella's able to groove like some of the other singers of the decade. And sure, the whole thing gets a bit cheesy at times – but in a good way that has Ella breaking from the staidness of her "songbook" sessions. Titles include "Old MacDonald", "Matchmaker", "Wives & Lovers", "Lover Man", "I've Got Your Number", and "Whisper Not". CD
