Holy Modal RoundersIndian War Whoop ... CD
Get Back (UK), 1967. Used ... $6.99
Some of the most tripped-out music ever from The Holy Modal Rounders – and that's saying a lot, given the nature of the group! This unique early album on ESP features two side-long tracks – both of which are mini-suites of sort, and filled with odd sounds, weird themes, and a strange mixture of hippie instrumentation and sci-fi experimentation! The group for the record is a quartet – with the core combo of Peter Stampfel on violin and vocals and Steve Weber on guitar, augmented by playwright Sam Shephard on drums and Lee Crabtree on piano and organ – plus extra vocals from the trio of Antonia, Barbara, & Wendy. The music is in the best free-thinking style of other rock on the ESP label in the 60s – and titles include "Jimmy & Crash Survey The Universe" and "The Second-Hand Watch". CD

✨✧ Intruders/Billy PaulI'll Always Love My Mama/Only The Strong Survive/War Of The Gods (edit) ... 12-inch
Philadelphia International, 1975/1977. New Copy (reissue)... $4.99
Excellent Philly soul! The Intruders "I'll Always Love My Mama" is one of our favorite-ever 70 soul songs – and it's a massive groover that sounds excellent on the dancefloor, and which is also a wonderful thanks to moms all over the world! (Play it for your mama this Mother's Day, and we guarantee you won't have to send her flowers!) The cut's included here in the full version – which runs for 9:41, and has a great monologue in the middle! The flip features two great numbers from Billy Paul – his version of the Gamble/Huff classic "Only The Strong Survive", and a 30 second edit of "War Of The Gods, the part that includes that great little moogy riff that's been sampled more than a few times over the years! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Billy PaulWar Of The Gods (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Philadelphia International/Big Break (UK), 1974. New Copy ... $14.99
A stone treasure from one of the greatest soul singers of the 70s – and a set you'll regularly find in the coolest of record collections from back in the day! Billy Paul was always one of the hippest talents on Philly International – mixing together soul and jazz influences with a deeper sense of spirituality, and long experience as a sophisticated vocalist. This album's one of his most sublime efforts – kind of a quasi-spiritual record with a similar high-concept approach to some of Marvin Gaye's work from the same time – really righteous, in ways that the Philly label didn't always hit – and which really goes past even most of Billy's already hip previous efforts. Gamble and Huff produced and wrote most of the record – including the two long tracks that make up side one, "I See The Light" and "War Of The Gods", the latter of which starts out slow and moody, then breaks out into a club groove. Other titles include the more standard soul tune "The Whole Town's Talking", plus "Thanks For Saving My Life" and "Peace Holy Peace". CD features bonus tracks – "War Of The Gods (part 1)", "The Whole Town's Talking (single)", and "I Was Married (single)". CD

On-U Sound (UK), 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99
One of those great On-U Sound records that's done up like a classic dub plate – but with better sound, and a lot more variety too! The set features material recorded in 1981 by Singers & Players – very dubby, in the best early On-U mode that was almost a furthering of earlier Jamaican dub efforts, but with this cool undercurrent of darkness. Prince Far I appears on "Calling Over The Distant Sea", and Jah Wosh is on "Don't Be Greedy" – and the two other tracks include "Bad Man Dub" and "Dispensation Dub". LP, Vinyl record album

Roy ThomasBatman – The War Years 1939 to 1945 (hardcover) ... Book
Chartwell Books, 2015. New Copy ... $15.99 24.99
A wealth of classic Batman comics from World War II – all brought together by comic historian Roy Thomas, who also provides a nice framework for the project! The Dark Knight is usually associated with action on the streets of Gotham City, but as with most comic book heros during WWII, he turned his talents towards stopping he Axis – both in direct confrontation, and working against spies and saboteurs – in stories served up from the early years of Batman, Detective, and Worlds Finest comics – reprinted here in vivid color and oversized pages too! The book is nice and heavy – almost 300 pages – and even if you're not drawn to the wartime stories, the whole thing's a great presentation of Golden Age tales, with classic art and stories. 298 pages, hardcover, in full color.

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

Chartwell Books, 2015. New Copy ... $15.99 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".)

WarAll Day Music ... CD
United Artists/Avenue, 1971. New Copy ... $8.99 9.99
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".

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".

Totally weird sounds from a totally weird place – Oregon's Enchanted Forest sanctuary – a playful park with a look and feel that's right out of fantasy books and fairy tales! The music here definitely has a sound to match – almost like videogame themes that you'd hear if the character was moving through some shinto-inspired landscape – with a weird way of referencing elemental forces with electronic instrumentation, but all at a level that's also got this simple, child-like innocence. The whole record really fits the spirit of the cover – and titles include "Log Flume", "Challenge Of Mondor", "Bones & Slim", "Castle Flair", "Mine Music", "Willamette Overture", and "Fantasy Fountains".

Black SabbathParanoid (2LP 180 gram pressing – with bonus tracks) ... LP
Nems/Warner, 1971. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $29.99 31.99
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. Titles include the classics "Paranoid" and "Iron Man", plus "War Pigs", "Planet Caravan", "Electric Funeral", "Hand Of Doom", and "Rat Salad". Features a full album of bonus tracks too – including instrumentals of "War Pigs", "Iron Man", "Electric Funeral", "Hand Of Doom", and "Fairies Wear Boots" – and alternate lyrics versions of "Paranoid" and "Planet Caravan".

Black Sabbath live recordings from the height of their early glory years! The heart of it is heavy classics recorded at gigs in Manchester and London in 1973 – originally released as Live At Last, without the band's and their label's oversight, and with poor sound – remixed and remastered gloriously here to showcase the band at their menacing best! The second LP features recordings never released before 2002, equally powerful recordings from Paris in 1970 and Asbury Park, NJ in '75. Many of the most beloved Sabbath stormers are featured, faster and more ferocious than the studio versions in some cases. Includes "Tomorrow's Dream", "Iron Man", "Snow Blind", "Sweet Leaf", "NIB", "War Pigs", "Hand Of Doom", "Black Sabbath", "Fairies Wear Boots" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Sky/Bureau B (Germany), 1976. New Copy ... $14.99
A key chapter in the career of the legendary Cluster – one that has the German duo of Hans-Joachim Rodelius and Dieter Moebius stepping back from their fuller sound of records past – hitting a spare, spacious, lightly electronic sound that would have a huge impact on modern music for many years to come! The feel here is similar to some of the pair's work with Brian Eno, but even more spare overall – often quiet, and almost organic at times – even though most instrumentation comes from electric guitar, keyboards, and analogue electronics. There's an understated quality to the record that makes for a key break from the overindulgence of prog – a move that Cluster made brilliantly to keep themselves healthy for many years to come! Titles include "Zum Wohl", "Sowiesoso", "Halwa", "Dem Wanderer", "Umleitung", and "Es War Einmal". CD

Leonard CohenNew Skin For The Old Ceremony (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Columbia/Sundazed, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99 28.99
New Skin for Leonard Cohen, who by 1974 was ready to start singing with a bit more flair, and do so over more textured arrangements – but still raw both emotionally and in the unglossy instrumentation! The core of the sound is still Cohen's voice, his words, and acoustic guitar – but this record brings in some ragged acoustic instrumentation and loose percussion, as well as some more layered strings, some winds, and backing vocals – Janis Ian among the vocalists. On later records, bigger productions would nearly choke the natural life out of Cohen's songs, but this is one of those totally great records where the change in sound would actually enhance the material in the studio – allowing for one of his best albums of the 70s. Titles include "Is This What You Wanted", "Chelsea Hotel #2", "Lover Lover Lover", "Field Commander Cohen", "Ther Is A War", "A Singer Must Die", "Leaving Greensleeves" and more.

Delmore BrothersFreight Train Boogie – King Recordings 1946 to 1951 ... CD
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

East Of UndergroundHell Below (East Of Underground/Soap/Black Seeds/Sound Trek) (3CD set) ... CD
US Army/Now Again, 1971/1972. Used 3CDs ... $9.99
Proof that the US Army had plenty going on during the 70s – as you'll hear from this killer set of military-produced grooves from East Of Underground! The set goes way past the previous East Of Underground reissue – to feature work by the groups Soap, Black Seeds, and Sound Trek – all wrapped up in a beautiful package that's as visually pleasing as the music is funky! The cuts here were all recorded by US Army servicemen during the height of the Vietnam war – as Army-issued albums designed to encourage recruitment (as if a few funky grooves could help offset the bad press the war was getting on TV!) But despite that odd origin, the music here is all pretty great – mostly covers of familiar tunes from the time, but recorded with a nicely gritty quality that's mighty nice – and which makes the overall feel of the records like digging into some lost small studio tapes – ala Numero! Now Again have done a great job of putting together the whole package, too – contributing a wealth of notes and photos, and really digging deep into the scene in which these unique records were created. Not only that, but the packaging also replicates the style of the original odd releases too! The set features a CD each of music by East Of Underground and Soap – plus another CD that brings together an unusual double LP by the groups Black Seeds and Sound Trek. Titles include "I Just Want To Celebrate", "Kool & The Gang", "Walking In The Rain", "Backstabbers", "I Love Everything About You", "Ain't No Sunshine", "Go Outside In The Rain", "Black Magic Woman", "Hell Below", "Higher", "Popcorn/Santana", "Walk On By", "Java Girl", and "Get Together".

A spooky little cover, and a spooky sort of sound to match – a great variation on synth-heavy rock modes – with strong echoes both of the early 80s post-punk generation, and of some of the best horror soundtracks of the time! Alex Cuervo plays all the instrumentation himself – and although keyboards and fuzzy guitar do a lot of the work, there's also some stark rhythms that really strengthen the music too – almost early 80s German modes at times, in the way the drums have this sideways sort of splash – which deepens and darkens the overall vibe of the record. All tracks are instrumental – and titles include "The Obelisk", "This Is A War Universe", "The Feral Kids", "Removing The Bandages", "The Goddamn Apocalypse", and "The Cold Spot".

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

Ghostface Killah & Adrian YoungeTwelve Reasons To Die ... LP
Linear Labs, 2013. New Copy ... $18.99 20.98
Ghostface Killah and Adrian Younge team up for this most intriguing artist and producer/composer collaboration – one with a promising concept and they deliver in full – shadowboxing their way to a knockout! On the mic tip, Ghostface is in his comfort zone – spitting lyrics laced with martial arts, mafia and supernatural imagery – and doing so with a furious flow and peak precision. Adrian Younge and his Venice Dawn group lay down the sounds – with dusty soul and funk, naturally – but what really pushes this one to a superior level are the unpredictable and ingenious nods to 70s Italian film scores, particularly in the giallo genre. Spooky, echoey keyboards and occasional angelic female backing vocals elevate the vibe and balance the grit. 12 tracks and no filler: "Beware The Stare", "Rise Of The Black Suits", "I Declare War" with Masta Killa, "Blood On The Cobblestones" with U-God & Inspectah Deck, "Rise Of The Ghostface Killah", "Murder Spree" with U-God, Masta Killa, Inspectah Deck and Killa Sin, "Enemies Around Me" with William Hart of the Delfonics, "The Sure Shot (Parts 1 And 2)", "Twelve Reasons To Die" and more.

A blues album, but one with a difference – thanks to some tremendous help from the legendary Johnny Otis and his young son Shuggie! Despite the fact that the leader is billed as Guitar Slim Green, Shuggie actually plays some lead guitar on the record too – adding in some cool, complicated solos that point towards his genius to come as a solo act – and which also get some nicely romping rhythms from Johnny on drums! The Otis family was definitely bringing a lot of funk into their sound at the time, which they share plenty with Slim here – helping to make the record way more than just another late 60s rootsy blues session, and instead a great west coast criss-crossing of modes. Titles include "Shake Em Up", "My Little Angel Child", "5th Street Alley Boogie", "Old Folks Blues", "This War Ain't Right", and "Big Fine Thing". Also features two bonus tracks, both unissued – "My Marie" and "Rock The Nation". CD

Impulse, 1969. Used ... $6.99
One of the most beautiful albums that Charlie Haden ever recorded – and if he only ever appeared on one record in his life, we'd still love him tremendously for this one! The album has a feel that's very much in keeping with both the "liberation" and "orchestra" in the title – "liberation", in that the music is filled with inspiration from South American sources, and has a strongly political feel at times; and "orchestra" because the group here is somewhat large, and filled with a tremendous array of expressive players – including Gato Barbieri on tenor, Dewey Redman on alto and tenor, Don Cherry on cornet and flutes, Michael Mantler on trumpet, Roswell Rudd on trombone, Robert Northern on French horn, Paul Motian and Andrew Cyrille on percussion, Carla Bley on piano, and Perry Robinson on clarinet. Haden leads these disparate talents through a set of tremendously focused music – filled with as many ideas as it is with a sense of humanity and soul – all to brilliantly point the way forward for the new sound of Impulse Records in the years after Coltrane's death! Titles include the classic "Song For Che", plus Ornette's "War Orphans", Carla Bley's "The Interlude", and "Song Of The United Front", by Hans Eisler, and with words by Brecht! CD

Lee HazlewoodSomething Special (with bonus tracks) ... CD
MGM/Light In The Attic, Late 60s. New Copy ... $12.99 14.98
Pure genius from Lee Hazlewood – one of his gems cut for MGM in the 60s, and a session that features some great small combo backings! The feel here is almost a jazz-inflected take on the slight country tinge of Lee's other work – a style that's as sophisticated and unique as Hazlewood's well-penned lyrics and amazing vocals. Lee's completely at home here – working with the great engineer Eddie Brackett, who's sound for his vocals is just about as great as could be hoped – the matchless blend of ice and embers that perfectly defines the Hazlewood sound. All tunes are originals by Lee – and tracks include "Shades", "This Town", "Stone Cold Blues", "Child", "Little War", "Hands", "Fort Worth", "Them Girls", and "Mannford Oklahoma". Features two bonus tracks – "Moochie Ladeux" and "The Lone Ranger". CD

Lightnin HopkinsLightnin Hopkins Sings The Blues – The Complete RPM Recordings ... CD
RPM/P-Vine (Japan), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... $24.99
Lightnin Hopkins sings the blues – and virtually helps reinvent the genre in the process with these classic Texas recordings for the RPM label! The style here is much rootsier than some of the postwar blues coming out from other scenes – quite spare, and almost more in a delta style of singer and guitar, without much else in the mix. Yet Hopkins' use of an electric instrument here is seminal – as he works the strings with these inflections and inspirations that would have a huge impact on countless other musicians to come – first blues contemporaries, then bigger talents in the world of rock in later decades. Yet there's still nothing better than these initial recordings – as few folks have a way of hitting the right modes in the right way like Lighnin – both vocally, where he's simple but extremely powerful – and instrumentally, where he can always grab us with just a surprising flick or two of his fingers on the strings. CD features the complete recordings that Hopkins made for the RPM label – 32 tracks in all, including 8 that were never issued before – all very lovingly remastered in this well-done package. Titles include "Give Me Back That Wig", "Jake Head Boogie", "Every Day I Have The Blues", "Candy Kitchen", "Needed Time", "Santa Fe", "One Kind Favor", "Bad Luck & Trouble", "War News Blues", "Ticket Agent", "Tell Me Pretty Mama", and "House Upon The Hill".

Lightnin Hopkins & Billy BizorWake Up The Dead ... CD
Cicadelic, Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $22.99
A sweet set that not only offers up rare work from Lightnin Hopkins, but also some even more obscure material from his harmonica player Billy Bizor! The set begins with an album's worth of tracks that featuer the pair together – Hopkins completely charming on vocals, with an easygoing style that seems almost effortless, as does his guitar – and these background lines from Bizor that really set the tunes on fire – again with this quality that's never overdone, but which really makes the music sparkle. CD also then features a few more solo tracks by Bizor – then moves into a whole bonus CD of obscure demos that just feature Billy alone. Package includes a whopping 38 tracks – and titles include "Wake Up The Dead", "Vietnam War", "How Dooz It", "Mojo Hand", "Lightnin Bolt", "T Model Ford", "Whiskey Head Woman", "When I'm Dead", "Screwdriver", "You Knock Me Out", "Let's Pitch One", and "Billy Bizor Is Dead".

✨✧ Son House/JD ShortDelta Blues ... LP
Folkways, 1942/1962. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Two generations of blues – presented together here in a classic Folkways package! Side one features Alan Lomax recordings of Son House – done on a trip to the delta in 1942, after Lomax was able to talk Son's boss into giving him the afternoon off, so they could drive to a grocery store where they could plug in the tape recorder! House sounds great here – a few years after classic vintage, but still very much in fine form – and titles include "My Black Woman", "Sun Goin Down", "I Ain't Goin To Cry No More", and "This War Will Last You For Years". Side two features work from JD Short – a contemporary of Son House on the Paramount Records scene – but recorded here in 1962 by Samuel Charters, in a laidback, stripped-down style that's very much in the older mode used by Lomax, but slightly more clear. Short lays down some great harmonica lines alongside his vocals and guitar – and titles include "So Much Wine", "Train Bring My Baby Back", "Fighting For Dear Old Uncle Sam", and "You Been Cheatin Me".
