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

✨✧ WarAll Day Music (Gold CD) ... CD
United Artists/Avenue, 1971. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A sweet sweet set from the mighty War – and maybe the record that really has the group coming into their own! The record's got a stronger vocal presence than earlier War efforts, which is a really great thing – kind of a blend of sweet soul, heavy funk, and Chicano modes – all served up with this ultra-hip East LA sort of vibe that's way more interested in finding the best sweet spot in the music, than it is trying to figure out any labels for its groove! This approach rings out famously in the classic "Slipping Into Darkness" – which gets a 7 minute workout here – but the whole thing is great, and other titles include the seminal "Baby Brother", plus "Nappy Head", "Get Down", and "There Must Be A Reason".

MCA/Avenue, 1977. New Copy ... $8.99 9.99
A massive jammer from War – and a record that brought the group to a whole new generation of listeners – as well as a good number of later fans who discovered some of these jams in the club! The groove here isn't disco, but this tightening up of War's sweet jamming vibe – almost given a sort of Mizell Brothers twist here, with a focus on sharper rhythms, but still plenty of space for instrumental flourishes over the top. Tracks are long and open, but in different ways than the early years – and there's some rhythmic elements on the record that really have the group trying out something new – and definitely finding a sweet spot in the process! The whole thing's great – and titles include the great extended instrumental "The Seven Tin Soldiers", plus "Hey Senorita", "Baby Face", "Galaxy", and "Sweet Fighting Lady". CD

RCA/Avenue, 1982. New Copy ... $8.99 9.99
A sweet snapping groove from War – a set that has the group picking up a bit more boogie in their bounce than before, but at a level that helps keep their funk fresh for a whole new generation! The album's a heck of a lot warmer and more live than most of their contemporaries – and while there's a bit less of the freer moments of their youth, there's still plenty of jazzy touches over the top – and that wonderful trademark blend of Latin elements, jazzy riffing, and captivating chorus vocals! Basslines take on a bit more role than before – but in a good way – and titles include "You Got The Power", "The Jungle", "Just Because", "Outlaw", "I'm About Somebody", and "Cinco De Mayo". CD

United Artists, 1971. Very Good- Gatefold ... $6.99
A wonderful first solo album from War – a set that has them breaking away from their early partnership with singer Eric Burdon – and finding an even better groove in the process! The vibe here is hipper, and even more righteous than before – some of those great jazz currents on flute, keyboards, and even harmonica – that sweet Lee Oskar mode that always made the group so great – set to very cool rhythms that blend together funk, Latin, and soul elements – all openly grooving here at a level that's free from some of the more hitbound modes of their biggest records. The whole thing's great, and still stunningly fresh after all these years – and titles include "Sun Oh Son", "Lonely Feelin", "Back Home", "War Drums", and "Vibeka". LP, Vinyl record album

WarWhy Can't We Be Friends? ... LP
United Artists, 1975. Very Good ... $6.99
A huge moment for War – maybe the group's biggest album of the 70s, but a set that still has them holding onto everything that makes the great! Like Earth Wind & Fire at their best, War have this way of staying strong and righteous, while still able to hit a hook – jamming one minute, but finding sharp focus the next – and balancing it all out over the course of an album so that there's a sense of depth that really keeps on going once the familiar cuts draw you in. In this case, the familiar cuts are giants – the stunning Latin funk gem "Low Rider", which became an anthem for a generation, and the radio hit "Why Can't We Be Friends" – mixed with other nuggets like the jazzy "Don't No One Get You Down", the funky "Heartbeat", and the cuts "Lotus Blossom", "Smile Happy", "So", and "Leroy's Latin Lament".

United Artists, 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
War delivers the word, and a whole lot more as well – that amazing blend of styles that always made the group way more than just the sum of its parts! The classic groove is very firmly in place here – a great style that mixes jazz funk with a freer jamming style borrowed from Latin music – served up on a batch of long tracks that really let the band open up and groove! Vocals are part of the plan, but the instrumentation often gets as much time in the spotlight as well – and the set includes the classic jammer "Me & Baby Brother", plus "H2 Overture", "Blisters", "Southern Part Of Texas", "In Your Eyes", and "Gypsy Man".

Weird batch of instrumental grooves played by what is billed as an early version of War, with Lonnie Jordan on piano and organ, Harold Brown on drums, Magnificent Montague on congas, and Bobby Womack on guitar! The liner notes lists the group as being made up of members of The Packers, The Romeos, and The Soul Runners – and if you know those groups from their funky 45's, then you'll get a feeling of the funky instrumental sound of this album. It's not really like War at all, but it's a great batch of lost funky tracks from the LA scene, with titles like "On Fire", "La Chanson", "Blusing Tears", "Moving Along", "Cup Of Soul", "Time Is Tight", and "The Bamboche".

A monster from start to finish – not only the greatest album from War, but maybe one of the greatest mainstream funk albums of all time! The set's got a really unique groove – one that so many others tried to copy, but which was forged here first – in a wicked LA blend of Chicano funk, heavy organ lines, and soulful singing that sews the whole thing together perfectly. Just about every cut is upbeat and funky – rolling along at that low-rider pace that was War's lasting contribution to funk music – and the album features the huge hits "World Is A Ghetto" and "Cisco Kid", two of the brightest spots on radio funk from the 70s – plus classics like "Four Cornered Room", "City Country City", "Where Was You At", and "Beetles In The Bog".

Far Out/MGM, 1971. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A surprisingly great pairing of talents – the post-Animals Eric Burdon on vocals, and early grooves from Cali funk legends War – coming together here in a blend that still holds up beautifully after all these years! Burdon was already getting pretty soulful on the last few Animals albums on MGM – and he really advances that style here when working with War's great grooves – some of the grittiest, nastiest, most stretched out work of their career – especially on some of the album's nicely long tracks. There's some nice Latin currents to the music at times, and the group vocalize alongside Burdon at times – and titles include "Bare Back Ride", "Pretty Colors", "Gun", "Paint It Black", and "Spirit" – all in special edited versions!

✨✧ War & Eric BurdonEric Burdon Declares War ... LP
MGM, 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
War became so popular on their own in later years that it's easy to forget how they first sprung onto the soul charts – here, in an album of many styles that was put together by the wayward Eric Burdon after the dissolution of The Animals. We have to admit that Burdon was a genius to hook onto the rich talents of this LA combo – even though he really didn't know what to do with them on this record. Part of the album's an homage to Roland Kirk, part is an extended reworking of "Tobacco Road", and part is an overly-long bluesy passage called "Blues For Memphis Slim". Fortunately, the record also includes the monster groover "Spill The Wine", one of the first big crossover tracks to popularize the Chicano funk sound of LA – and a great little groover that still hooks us in today.

Banks & Steelz (RZA & Paul Banks)Anything But Words ... LP
Warner, 2016. New Copy 2 LPs ... $19.99 21.98
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.

Mainstream, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $1.99
A fairly straight orchestral score by John Barry – written for this early 60s film that starred George Segal, Tom Courneay, and Denholm Elliott. The film's a war one, and the themes are pretty typical for that sort of thing – but they do have some nice instrumental touches that push them past the usual bag, and which show that Barry's younger writing was always a treat, no matter what the setting. Titles include "There Is A Radio In This Hut", "Just As You Were", "Grey's Day", "The Recovery Of Marlowe", "Touch & Go", and "King Rat March". LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy Bennington TrioAnother Friend – The Music Of Herbie Nichols ... CD
That Swan, 2005. Used ... $5.99
A really beautiful tribute to the music of Herbie Nichols – played in an extremely loving way by a group led by drummer Jimmy Bennington, and featuring David Haney on piano! Haney's tones here are arguably even more modern than Nichols on his famous recordings of the 50s – but there's also a warmth in his renditions that we really love – that subtle soul that always made Herbie's music so wonderful, and which marked it as a key link between a few important jazz traditions of the post and pre-war years – as grounded in a lineage as it was determined to break from it! That balance is crucial to Nichols music, and Bennington's group really gets it right. Titles include "Prancin Pretty Woman", "House Party Starting", "Old 52nd Street Rag", "Another Friend", and "Ina". CD

Warren BernardCartoons For Victory (hardcover) ... Book
Fantagraphics, 2015. New Copy ... $10.99 34.99
A fantastic collection of World War II-era comic material – including lots of rare work by some of the biggest comic names of the time! Comic art really came into its own as America was entering WWII – the newspaper medium had hit an all-time high, with some of the best art of the century – and the new comic book format was exploding, and would find a huge audience in GIs stationed overseas. Those intertwined fates made for some amazing moments on paper – as comics rallied the forces back home, through well-spirited stories, and characters designed to provide a strong example of America's full potential – a huge propaganda push that not only included obvious folks, like Superman and Captain America – but also Nancy, Little Orphan Annie, and Donald Duck – all of whom had something to say about the war. Yet this book doesn't just stop with comic stories – as it pulls together comic material from advertisements, posters, and other propaganda fronts – with rare work from folks like Milton Caniff, Will Esiner, Al Capp, and other key talents of the time. The book is beautiful – sometimes in two-tone color, sometimes full color – wonderfully laid out, and with lots of supporting text. The hardcover volume is nice and big – almost bigger than the usual art book – and is 254 pages. Book

Easily one of our favorite albums by Tim Buckley – and a record that really opens up with some key jazzy touches! Buckley's still got his roots in folk here, and his vocals are yet to hit the extremes of Starsailor or Lorca – but there's also a new sense of inflection to the way he puts over the lyrics, shaded in by use of vibes, kalimba, harmonium, and harpsichord – the latter two of which are played on the session by Don Randi! Tracks are relatively short, but high in concept – and include the protest song "No Man Can Find The War", plus "Hallucinations", "Phantasmagoria In Two", "Carnival Song", "Pleasant Street", "Morning Glory", and "Goodbye & Hello".

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".

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.

Guido & Maurizio De AngelisRoma Violenta ... LP
Sub Ost (Italy), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... About December 1, 2016 (delayed)
One of the greatest Italian crime soundtracks of all time – a totally groovy little record that's done in a style that's quite different than American crime scores of the time, but still completely wonderful! Most of the instrumentation here is relatively spare – almost a small combo funk approach to scoring for a cop film, but done with the penchant for isolated focus on a key instrument that makes Italian soundtracks so great. There's no full horns nor funky orchestrations – and in their place are stepping bass bits, lightly dancing keyboards, and plenty of guitar parts – some jamming, some nicely spacey with a really eerie feel! The sound is great – never as cheesy as other Italian work from the mid to late 70s – and there's a grittier feel here than you'd expect, one that really keeps things interesting. CD features note in English and Italian, and a total of 23 tracks that include "The Reason Of A Just War", "The Punitive Justice", "The Other Face", "Undercover Investigation", "Gangster Story", "Casa Di Muda", and "Chicca".

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

DevoFreedom Of Choice ... LP
Warner, 1980. Very Good+ ... $12.99
The era that catapulted cult heroes Devo into pop culture history – with bubblier synths, catchier hooks, and crazier multimedia shenanigans than ever before from these pioneers of the video era – and time capsule pop angle aside, one of the best and most innovate pop albums of its time! It's pretty hard to imagine the early 80s without Devo, but the group and this record is just as amazing decades later, since there was never anyone else like them! Includes "Girl U Want", "It's Not Right", "Whip It", "Freedom Of Coice", "Cold War", "Don't You Know", "Gates Of Steel" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes printed inner sleeve.)

✨✧ Eyes Of BlueIn Fields Of Ardath ... LP
Mercury/Wah Wah (Spain), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 500!)
Also available In Fields Of Ardath (with bonus track) ... CD 9.99
