Sunny WarWith The Sun ... LP
ORG, 2018. New Copy ... $17.99 19.99
Haunting work from Sunny War – a singer/songwriter who's got a very rootsy style on acoustic guitar, but who uses the instrument in different ways to back up her more contemporary lyrics! A few steps to the right, and she might be too traditional – but Sunny's got this very fresh, beautiful style that embraces the past while moving forward – and which also somehow manages to avoid other cliches of the singer/songwriter scene too. The music has touches of violin, cello, and bass from time to time, but is always quite spare – and titles include "With The Sun", "He Is My Cell", "Til I'm Dead", "If It Wasn't Broken", "Gotta Live It", "I'm Human", "Finn", and "Immortal".

WarAll Day Music ... CD
United Artists, 1971. Used ... $6.99
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".

A monster set of Chicano funky grooves from LA – most of which forever transformed the sound of funk! The album includes most of the band's best cuts – like "Slippin Into Darkness", "Cisco Kid", "World Is A Ghetto", "All Day Music", "Me & Baby Brother", "Why Can't We Be Friends", and "Low Rider". Some tracks are in shorter 45 edits, but that only means you'll get more music in the long run! LP, Vinyl record album

WarLife is So Strange ... LP
RCA, 1983. Very Good+ ... $3.99
War is one of those groups that really kept on going greatly, long after folks seem to remember – a group who changed their sound nicely with the times, and never seemed to lose their original sense of soul! This set's light years from their earlier heavy funk, but still wonderful work overall – a redefinition of their groove into some laidback modes that make for some especially nice stepping moments! It's hard to pin down the exact sound they're going for – as there's a bit of dub, a bit of club, a bit of keyboards, and even some darker spots too – but the sound is compelling and funk-tinged throughout, and almost even fresher than the rest, given the absence of any big hits. Titles include "U2 Medley", "Shaking It Down", "Life Is So Strange", "Happiness", and "WWIII Medley". LP, Vinyl record album

WarOutlaw ... LP
RCA, 1982. Very Good+ ... $5.99
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".

WarPlatinum Jazz ... LP
Blue Note, 1977. Very Good- 2LP Gatefold ... $2.99
Sweet jazzy work from War – a record that has them stretching things out a bit from before, and finding new ways to groove for the second half of the 70s! All the core elements are still firmly in place – that sublime blend of jazz, soul, funk, and Latin elements – but there's a slight shift in the presentation, with maybe just a touch more of the jazz promised in the title – which might have to do with the album's initial placement as a Blue Note Records title! The first half of the record features all new material, showcasing this slight shift in the group's sound – and a mode that's nicely free of any hits – and the second half of the set brings back some key jazzy tracks from earlier records, which fit perfectly into place. Titles include "War Is Coming", "I Got You", "LA Sunshine", "Platinum Jazz", "Slowly We Walk Together", "River Niger", "H2Overture", "City Country City", "Four Cornered Room", and "Deliver The Word".

WarSlippin' Into Darkness/Nappy Head ... 7-inch
United Artists, Early 70s. Very Good- ... $1.99
A Chicano funk classic – and one of War's best cuts! "Slippin Into Darkness" has a sound that influenced everyone at the time – slow, mean, dubby, and very funky – a chugging little tune that never loses its groove, and shows that slow can be as funky as fast! "Nappy Head" is the theme from Ghetto Man – whatever that is – and a great little track that percolates with Latin energy, similar to the group's classic "Spill The Wine"! 7-inch, Vinyl record

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".

United Artists, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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, 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ Spoils Of WarSpoils Of War (180 gram pressing – with bonus 7" single) ... LP
Wah Wah (Spain), Late 60s. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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

GAD (Poland), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... $6.99
A very cool set of work from Moebius – not the German electronic group of the same generation, but a much lesser-known American duo – although one who also embraced a fair bit of electronics too! The style here is mostly lean, and carved out of keyboards, beats, and lots of other cool electro sounds – often with a coldness that's echoed in the vocals – making these guys a real lost treasure in the American post-punk underground! Much of this work was done in LA, where it might have been less appreciated amidst that city's stronger hardcore scene – but years later, the collection's a real cold wave treasure trove – filled with material from their two albums Moebius and Video Soldier In A Radio War – with titles that include "Clone Zone", "Prophecy", "Light My Fire", "Song For Lya", "Main Contender", "Pushin Too Hard", "Fallin In Love", "Video Soldier", and "I Need A Job".

Billy PaulWar Of The Gods ... LP
Philadelphia International, 1974. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $16.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Essential stuff, whether you're a fan of roots reggae, Jamaican soul or the otherworldly antics of the Upsetter! Though you might not know it from some of the bitter rebukes Scratch later laid to wax against him, Romeo was clearly his favorite son when it came to vocalists, and got the prodigal treatment when it came to the choice of rhythms to voice. A monumental effort on both their parts, this album continues to amaze us with every spin, Romeo's soulful inflections matched perfectly to the dark, swampy Black Ark grooves. Include "War Ina Babylon", "Chase The Devil", "Stealin'", "One Step Forward", "Smile Out Of Style", "Uptown Babies", "Tan And See", "Smokey Room" and "Norman". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousHawaii Authentic – The Pre War Era Vol 2 – 1927 to 1936 ... LP
Asherah, Late 20s/Early 30s. New Copy ... $10.99
The authentic sound of Hawaii – music from long before the islands achieved statehood, and long before their music became the stuff of stereotype! Instead, the sounds here are a fresh flowering of musical expression – mostly using unusual guitar phrasing and vocals, and recorded during the same 78rpm era that gave the world rural blues and string band music! At the time, Hawaiian records like these were ever bit as much a part of the transforming global landscape of sound – and heard in the context of other older 78rpm styles, they're every bit as mesmerizing – in ways you'd never expect if you only know Don Ho or 60s easy listening Hawaii. The set brings together some real gems from the early 78rpm years – and titles on this second volume include "U Like Noa Like" by Tau Moe's Hawaiian Jazzites, "Kola Pa" by Sol Hoopii, "Maui Girl" by Andy Iona's Islanders, "Alekoki" by Kane's Hawaiians, "O Kou Aloha Ia Oe" by John Almeida, and "Wela Ka Hao" by Segis Luvaun.

Motown, 2008. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Badu is back with some of the deepest, funkiest and best music of her career – a mindblowing treatise for a New Amerykah – and what we'll consider an instant classic whether the world at large catches on or not! Erykah steps up this time with a set that balances the wilder impulses of her criminally underappreciated Worldwide Underground and more of a hip hop based, righteously grooving style – but still bursts with a freshness that's unrivaled to say the least. From free spirited soul, to sparse hip hop funk this record is both blunt and beautiful – with a slow-building emotional resonance that'll reach the most jaded souls. Modern soul music of the first order that gives us goosebumps from the first spin to the last beat! The album kicks off with Erykah riffing on and remixing Ramp's "American Promise" as an intro – and it just gets deeper from there. Producers/collaborators include Madlib, Sa-Ra, Karriem Riggins, James Poyser and ?uestlove. Amazing!!! Titles include "The Healer", "Me", "My People", "Soldier", "The Cell", "Twinkle", "Master Teacher", "The Hump" and "Telephone". The 9th Wonder produced single "Honey" is an unlisted bonus track.

Thames & Hudson (UK), 2014. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A stunningly vivid portrait of New York in the postwar years – a time when the city's already-strong hold on American culture was taken to its apex – as the city became home to some of the most important artists, actors, writers, and creative forces of the generation! The book is filled with amazing photographs – hundreds of images, in both black and white and color, laid out alongside equally rich text, in three large sections that look at the visual arts, the performing arts, and architecture and design. Modern visual artists get especially strong placement in the book, as does the groundbreaking architecture in the city during the 50s – but there's also some great sections on dance, theater, and nightlife too – and the whole thing's more than large enough to cover everything at a reasonably strong level. The layout and design of the book are great – and the choice of images is superb – and the whole thing is super-heavy, hardcover, and a whopping 400 pages in all. Book

Rather than just a set of groovy little songs, the set's more of a unified batch of original compositions by the sextet – played in a way that's a bit Sunshine Pop, a bit psych – moving effortlessly between catchy, tuneful moments – and a few more trippy impulses! The group features both organ and electric piano, and some 12 string guitar as well – and titles include "There's A War On", "Cyclic Epic", "Better Way", "The Girl That Cannot Love", "A Simple Way", and "Our Country's Still OK".

The Stax debut of Angie Stone – a new setting for the singer, and one that really helps her freshen up her groove! Although a contemporary soul diva, Angie's definitely in classic territory here – maybe not the space of Stax from the 60s and 70s, but a rock-solid sound overall, and more than enough to help us renew our faith in her work! The backings are simple, but never too commercial – tightly stepping beats on the bottom that bounce Angie up over the top, but never push her vocals too far. And as before, some of the best moments have an almost-spoken sort of quality – a way of unfolding out a tune that's very real and natural. Guests include Betty Wright and James Ingram, and titles include "Take Everything In", "Sometimes", "Make It Last", "Here We Go Again", "Baby", "My People", "Half A Chance", "Go Back To Your Life", "Wait For Me", "Pop Pop", and "Happy Being Me".

Bear Family (Germany), Early 50s. New Copy 4CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A totally wonderful package – and one that will have you throwing away all the Vietnam Rock compilations you have in your collection! This set unearths a massive amount of music that was created during the Korean war – filled with themes of sadness and loss that most folks wouldn't ascribe to wartime music until a decade later – the kinds of songs that represent a really sharp change from the patriotic, triumphant songs that were usually written in previous wartime situations. The variety of music is wonderful, and served up in the best Bear Family tradition – with a surprisingly strong amount of rare blues material, mixed with hillbilly cuts, gospel, R&B material, and other styles too – almost all of it nicely away from the mainstream! The overall package is wonderful, too – a heavy, oversized hardcover book – 160 pages that offer up track-by-track notes on the music, with full color photos, label scans, and lots more vivid images. The book alone is almost worth the price – but you also get 4CDs, with 121 tracks by artists who include Dave Bartholomew, Lightnin Hopkins, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, The Revelers, Jimmie Osborne, Arthur Crudup, Ray Snead, Edna McGriff, Hank Penny, Jean Shepard, Emmit Slay, Sherman Blues Johnson & His Clouds Of Joy, Billy Mize, Elton Britt, Steve Rogers, Oscar Brand, JB Lenoir, Delmore Brothers, Ernest Tubb, The Gospel Pilgrims, Fats Domino, Max Bailey, BB King, and many more!

The flipside's an original tune – one with a sweet riffing rhythm that almost feels like Roy Ayers on late 70s Polydor, but with a female vocal in the lead! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Gordy, 1970. Used ... Out Of Stock
A real breakout album for Edwin Starr – and the kind of full-on set that really helped give his music a bold new focus! Starr had already scored nicely on some playful tracks from the Motor City scene of the late 60s – but here, he emerges as a singer with a lot more depth than before – not only on the righteous tunes, like the classic title track – but also on some of the warmer ones too, which showcase a new adult style of singing we might not have expected a few years before! Unlike other Motown efforts of this level, there doesn't seem to be any core arranger and producer – which means that Edwin himself did an even greater job of pulling the whole thing together – a great run of tracks that includes the classic "War (What Is It Good For)", a killer version of "California Soul", one of the best Motown-penned tracks from the time – and the tracks "Time", "I Just Wanted To Cry", "All Around The World", "At Last I Found A Love", "I Can't Replace My Old Love", and "She Should Have Been Home".

✨✧ Erykah BaduNew Amerykah Part One (4th World War) ... CD
Motown, 2008. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Badu is back with some of the deepest, funkiest and best music of her career – a mindblowing treatise for a New Amerykah – and what we'll consider an instant classic whether the world at large catches on or not! Erykah steps up this time with a set that balances the wilder impulses of her criminally underappreciated Worldwide Underground and more of a hip hop based, righteously grooving style – but still bursts with a freshness that's unrivaled to say the least. From free spirited soul, to sparse hip hop funk this record is both blunt and beautiful – with a slow-building emotional resonance that'll reach the most jaded souls. Modern soul music of the first order that gives us goosebumps from the first spin to the last beat! The album kicks off with Erykah riffing on and remixing Ramp's "American Promise" as an intro – and it just gets deeper from there. Producers/collaborators include Madlib, Sa-Ra, Karriem Riggins, James Poyser and ?uestlove. Amazing!!! Titles include "The Healer", "Me", "My People", "Soldier", "The Cell", "Twinkle", "Master Teacher", "The Hump" and "Telephone". The 9th Wonder produced single "Honey" is an unlisted bonus track. CD

Modern Harmonic, 1962/1977/1982. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sun Ra from three different decades – one classic track, and two never-issued numbers! "Nuclear War" may well be the closest that Ra ever came to a "hit" – although the profanity in the tune certainly kept it away from the mainstream – a fantastic slow-building number with the group chanting out a strong message against the use of atomic weapons! The version here is from the Saturn album Fireside Chat With Lucifer – a nicely rough take on the tune. Next is the beautiful and unissued "Outer Reach Intense Energy" – heard here in an early version from 1977, with haunting piano lines from Ra at the beginning, and some really searing avant reed solos as the tune moves on. Last up is the beautiful "Twilight" – another unissued number, recorded in 1963, with Ra on "xylophonic electric piano" – which almost sounds like a tripped-out celeste! LP, Vinyl record album

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".

One of the strangest records you'll ever hope to own – a completely unusual vocal outing by two nuns from Australia – who are singing alongside spare accompaniment on organ, guitar, and piano! The whole thing's world's apart from the successful "nun" genre of the 60s – ala The Singing Nun – as this album feels weirdly spacey and kind of trippy – almost more in the vein of work by Miss Nelson and Bruce Haack than any sort of spiritual sounds! Some tunes are very spare and eerie – and almost feel like they were lifted from the soundtrack to an early David Lynch film – and titles include "Light", "Message Du Saint Esprit", "Nature Is A Song", "Fire", "Mary Was There", and "Teenager's Chorus".

A totally cool collection of really offbeat numbers with a space age sort of theme – tunes that run the gamut from rock instrumentals to electronic pop – with lots of stops along the space in between! The package is right up there with some of the best "themed" collections by Ace Records – not just a superb selection of tunes, but really put together in the best way possible – with thoughtful transitions between the tunes, and a huge booklet of notes and label images – with some text on the late Vicki Fox, who put together this set, and others for Ace in the past. You'll definitely recognize a few names here, but the setting makes them sound really amazing and unique – especially some of the soul, jazz, and blues artists in the mix. Titles include "Waltz In Orbit" by Ray Cathode, "Watusi Zombie" by Jan Davis, "Savage Girl" by Felix & His Fabulous Cats, "War Of The Worlds" by The Atlantics, "Caravan" by Gabor Szabo, "Hot Pot" by The Tornados, "Funky Me" by Timmy Thomas, "Uh Oh" by The Imps, "Flameout" by 101 Strings, "It's Karate Time" by Travis Wammack, "Long Sentence" by The Upsetters, "B'Wana Bongos" by Preston Epps, "Hung Over" by The Martinis, "Music To Watch Space Girls By" by Leonard Nimoy, "Aztec" by Bo Diddley, "Watusie Freeze (part 1)" by Big Walter & The Thunderbirds, and "RFD Rangoon" by The Forbidden Five.

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. The album's packaged in a lovingly heavy cover, with a nude "heavenly body" floating in space amidst a sea of bright colors!

Dubb Everlasting is a record that might mis-spell the name of its genre, but it's also a set that strips things right down to the core, then adds a very unique touch! Errol Brown works here in the Treasure Isle studios with massive rhythms from The Revolutionaries – but in a session that also includes a mysterious harmonica player too – who uses the instrument to carve out unusual riffs that are sometimes jazz, sometimes bluesy – almost making it feel like War's Lee Oskar is sitting in for a session down in Kingston! The instrument is quite different here than when melodica is used in dub – and titles include "Eva A Dub", "Marigunna Affair", "Babylon Dubbing", "Escape Affair", "Biblical Dub", and "Easy Locks".

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

Folkways, Late 50s/1960s/1970s/1980s/1990s/2000s. New Copy 2CD ... $20.99 22.98
She's got short blonde hair, in the manner of Doris Day in the 60s – but Barbara Dane is a much hipper singer – and one who can really live up to the promise made by the title of this collection! Dane emerged in the folk revival boom of the late 50s, but right from the start she was something completely different – almost as much of a blues singer as a folk artist – able to sing those modes in a completely unabashed, unself-conscious way – without any hoke at all, at a level that most other white female singers wouldn't take up until a decade later. This 2CD collection spans the full gamut of Dane's work, and is very heavy on her late 50s and 60s recordings for Folkway Records – with some surprisingly strong inclusions from later years too – a really great celebration of her unique genius. 38 tracks in all – including "Mama Yacey's Advice", "Come By Here", "It Isn't Nice", "I Am A Weary & Lonesome Traveler", "Mill Worker", "Song Of The Coat Maker", "Join The GI Movement", "Ballad Of Richard Campos", "I Don't Want Your Millions Mister", "Mother Earth", and "Study War No More".

Titles oncludes "Golden Divine", "Drops Of War", "White Leather", "Fancy Few", "Ecstasy of Hours" and the really great duet"Faultline" with Ed Droste of Grizzly Bear, and no stranger to leftfield soul himself having worked with SZA, Syd and others.

Soundway (UK), 2017. New Copy ... $7.99 12.98
One of those records that definitely lives up to its cover – as it's not only a great mish-mash of styles, it's also got some 80s instrumental currents that might come as a surprise if you know other records on the Soundway label! The work recasts older elements of Ugandan music with old school keyboards and drum machines – all at a level that's almost in the territory of some of the best post-punk global experiments – such as work on the Crammed Discs label, and maybe some of the more creative groups from the French and Belgian scenes of the time! The notes describe the music in somewhat enigmatic terms – but there's a straightforward appeal that really makes the whole thing great – a quality that's very unique, and very different – all with a sensitive approach that never goes for easy sorts of gimmicks or tricks. Titles include "All This Blue", "Abbanna Kange", "Kampala Auto Chase", "Endongo Moogs", "Silimu", "Jaja", "New Sunshine", "Essembi", "Killing Ghosts", "Happy Birthday Wonder", and "Otim's War". CD

FugsTenderness Junction ... LP
Reprise, 1967. Very Good Gatefold ... $14.99
One of the most fully-formed albums from The Fugs – still quite hippy dippy, but with a focus that's sometimes missing in their other work! And despite the somewhat major label placement of the set, there's arguably even more power here than on the group's earlier indie sides – thanks to strong use of the best elements that make up the tunes. There's still a great mix of styles going on – from Buddist chanting, to sing-song poetry, to some countrified rock – and the album's got enough room for playful detours, but always snaps back into some stronger song-based modes. Allen Ginsberg and Gregory Corso both make guest appearances, and titles include "Exorcising The Evil Spirits From The Pentagon October 21, 1967", "War Song", "Dover Beach", "Turn On/Tune In/Drop Out", "Wet Dream", "Hare Krishna", and "Aphrodite Mass".

Philips/Universal (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... $29.99
A record as revolutionary as the French year in which it was recorded – an amazing batch of late 60s grooves from Parisian pop madame France Gall! The set's upbeat and jaunty, with plenty of fuzz – almost a psyche pop sound, with lots of groovy guitars that make the album sparkle with plenty of razor-sharp notes! Gall's vocals are as wonderful as ever, and almost sound a bit more sinister in this setting – thanks to arrangements by Alain Gouraguer and the great David Whitaker. There's plenty of France Gall classics here – including versions of the Serge Gainsbourg tunes "Nefertiti" and "Teenie Weenie Boppie" – plus "Toi Que Je Veux", "Made In France", "Bebe Requin", and "Avant La Bagarre". CD features lots of bonus tracks – 10 more numbers that include "Don't Make War Captain Make Love", "La Vielle Fille", "24/36", "Dady Da Da", "Le Temps Du Tempo", "Y'A Du Soleil A Vendre", "Rue De L'Abricot", and "Souffler Les Bougies".

Impulse, 1969. Used Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
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! LP, Vinyl record album

Genius, pure genius! (Have we said that about Lee too many times before?) The work of Lee Hazlewood is beyond description – a bit of vocals, a bit of country, a bit of lounge, and a bit of rock – all wrapped up with a sinister edge that has you believing that this was the man who used to refer to his frequent musical partner as "Nasty" Sinatra over the headphones during recording sessions! The set features 35 tracks from Lee's obscure years at MGM records – wonderful vocal tunes that rank with some of his best ever, plus a few weird instrumentals, recorded by Lee Hazlewood's Woodchucks. Insanely wonderful stuff – records that we come back to again and again and again over the years – finally presented in their entirety, with a great set of notes on the music! Tracks include "Hands", "Mannford Oklahoma", "This Town", "Sand", "Child", "Little War", "Fort Worth", "Summer Wine", "I Move Around", "After Six", "Batman", "Summer Nights", "Suzi Jane Is Back In Town", "In Our Time", "When A Fool Loves A Fool", and "So Long Babe".

In The TraditionAncestral Alliances ... CD
AFJ, 2017. New Copy 2CD ... $13.99
Fantastic sounds from this ultra-hip Detroit ensemble – a contemporary group, but one whose musical message takes us back to the sounds of older acts like Fertile Ground or Oneness Of Juju! As with both of those groups, the style here mixes jazz with a wider sense of message and purpose – music that soars out to the skies with pride and positive energy, while also offering a deeper, more introspective conception of its role and power in culture. Tracks are instrumental and vocal – and the double-length album has nary a slow moment at all – as the group burst forth in a warm array of percussion and horns – sometimes a bit funky, always quite spiritual throughout. Olujimi Tafataona arranged, produced, and provided creative vision – and titles include his own "We Cry Freedom", "Stephen", "Brother Chokwe Lumumba", "War Is Here", "Assata", and "Fantasy For Violin & Four Winds" – plus versions of Lee Morgan's "Caramba", Jimmy Heath's "Gemini", John Coltrane's "The Sleeper", Wayne Shorter's "Footprints", and the Kool & The Gang classic "Chocolate Buttermilk".

Buddah, 1973. Very Good ... $9.99
A pivotal album for Barbara Mason – one in which she takes the little girl soul sound of earlier albums, and turns it into a sophisticated range of emotions that foreshadows later Philly work by singers like Jean Carn and Phyllis Hyman! Despite the Philly arrangements by Ronnie Baker, Norman Harris, and Vince Montana, there's actually a bit of a southern twinge to the record – an aspect that works nicely on the ballad cuts, which have kind of an Ann Sexton or Shirley Brown feel to them – sophisticated female soul at its best, and a real change overall for Barbara. Features the uptempo extended political cut "World War Three", plus "All in Love is Fair", "Bed and Board", "Caught in The Middle", "I Miss You Gordon", and "Me & Mr. Jones", her cover of the Billy Paul hit, and a nice version too!

Buddah, 1974. Sealed ... $34.99
Transition is right – as the cover has Barbara floating above a Curtis Mayfield-ish scene of drugs, war, gambling, and Satan – a really righteous image that beautifully sums up the vibe of the record! The set was recorded at Sigma Sound in Philly – with excellent arrangements from Norman Harris, Richard Rome, and Bobby Eli – who all bring in a slight blacksploitation vibe to match the image on the cover – easily the funkiest setting that Barbara Mason ever had! But the real star here is the lady herself – who's pushed herself beyond the little girl soul themes of a few years before, to take on a host of societal issues with a surprisingly righteous vibe – mostly on tracks she penned herself. The song titles sum up lots of the energy of the record – and include "World in a Crisis", "Trigger Happy People", "The Devil is Busy", "Sunday Saint (Weekday Sinner)", "Half Sister Half Brother", and "Time Is Running Out". A real surprise from Barbara Mason – and a great one too! LP, Vinyl record album

FPE, 2017. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $21.99 24.99
One of the deepest records we've ever heard from Nicole Mitchell – and that's saying a lot, given all her other fantastic albums! This richly-textured piece was first commissioned in honor of the 50th Anniversary of the AACM – that legendary jazz organization of which Mitchell is a part – and as a whole, it really demonstrates both the strong legacy of the group, and the farther territory it's reached over its decades-long span – music that has pushed past the initial moment of improvisation, through the AACM's standard of "great black music" as a replacement for classical – to the sorts of spiritual, cosmic sounds that Mitchell does so well. In addition to Nicole on flute and electronics, the group also features Avery R Young on vocals, Kojiro Umezaki on shakuhachi, Renee Baker on violin, Tatsu Aoki on bass and shamisen, Jovia Armstrong on percussion, Tomeka Reid on cello and banjo, and Alex Wing on electric guitar, oud, and theremin – a mix of instruments that is global in scope, electric and acoustic, and really used to effortlessly express the spiritual vision of Mitchell. The notes go into great detail about the thoughts and inspiration behind the music – and titles include "Egoes War", "The Chalice", "Dance Of Many Hands", "Listening Embrace", "Forestwall Timewalk", "Staircase Struggle", "Shiny Divider", "Timewrap", and "Mandorla Island".

✨✧ William OnyeaborTomorrow ... LP
Luaka Bop, 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 20.99
The sound of tomorrow, circa 1979 – as Afro groove pioneer William Onyeabor works his magic on a host of extended tracks – finding a way for earlier funk modes to move into leaner styles for the 80s! The music here has plenty of keyboards and basslines, but is maybe less totally electronic than some of William's records from a few years later – partly because of the vocals, sung by Onyeabor and a chorus with this very effective vibe – almost borrowing the call-response mode from Fela's long tracks, but focusing them around these hypnotic keyboard grooves in the process. Titles include "Why Go To War", "Tomorrow", "Fantastic Man", and "Try & Try". LP, Vinyl record album

William OnyeaborWho Is William Onyeabor – World Psychedelic Classics 5 (3LP set with download) ... LP
Luaka Bop, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3 LPs Gatefold ... $27.99 29.99
Grooves unlike anything else you've ever heard before – the rightly legendary musical legacy of William Onyeabor, one of the most enigmatic talents to come from the African scene of the 70s! The work here is all plenty darn funky, but it's also very different from familiar Afro Funk too – as the instrumentation is heavy on keyboards, handled by William with incredible dexterity – and spun out in these soaring lines that bristle with righteous touches that really support the message of his tunes! The vibe mixes in some electro elements with long-drawn rhythms – and the vocals often step aside for lots of keyboard and rhythm interplay, then come in to send things home at just the right moment. Onyeabor's been a pretty elusive cat over the years, and it's taken Luaka Bop quite some time to put this collection together – amazing work that may well make the album one of the most important to ever come from the label – and the first introduction to the non-African world of Onyeabor's incredible sounds. Titles include "Body & Soul", "Atomic Bomb", "Something You'll Never Forget", "Why Go To War", "Love Is Blind", "Fantastic Man", and "Let's Fall In Love". 3LP set features four bonus tracks not on the CD!

OsibisaHappy Children ... LP
Warner, 1973. Very Good- Gatefold ... $8.99
This UK Afro Funk group is slicking things up a bit for this 1973 album – but not in a bad way, because it actually kicks up the groove considerably. In fact, it almost sounds like they've been listening to a bit of War – because the the best tracks on the album have lots of that funky clavinet and stepping bass that you get in War's best moments, filtered through the group's own dubby brand of African rhythms, vaguely like the work of Cymande, but a bit more straight ahead. Titles include "Somaja", "Fire", "Kotoku", "We Want To Know", "Take Your Trouble Go", "Bassa Bassa", and "Adwoa". LP, Vinyl record album

Includes the massive "Haunted House", a nice groover which is a classic with the Chicago steppers. Other tracks include "Steppin", "Feelin Happy", "San Francisco Bay", and "Before The Rain".

Lee OskarLee Oskar ... LP
Far Out/United Artists, 1976. Very Good+ ... $1.99
Nice mellow LA funk, played by Lee Oskar with help from a lot of his bandmates in the group War. The sound is similar to some of War's Chicano funk grooves – but with some very nicely punctuated rhythms that have the drums snapping out more than on War's albums from the time. Oskar's harmonica playing is processed in a very cool way that almost completely hides its origins, and which gives it a lot of cool sounds and tones that you wouldn't expect. Titles include "The Journey", "BLT", "The Promised Land", and the nice nice "Down The Nile". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the heavy inner sleeve. Cover has light wear.)

Lee Perry & OthersMr Perry I Presume ... CD
Pressure Sounds (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98
A wealth of unreleased tracks and unreleased mixes from the studios of the mighty Lee Scratch Perry – material that was mostly recorded during a very fruitful time in the mid 70s, when Lee was turning out a fair bit of tracks that were only issued on one-off dub plates, to be spun by only the hippest sound systems in Kingston and London! Material of this nature is often nicely offbeat – no easy hooks or more commercial elements, and instead the kind of creative approach to overall sound that makes every aspect of a tune worth opening up into play – from the vocals to the rhythms, to the production. Titles include "Ethiopia Land" by Peter & Paul, "Lay Beside You" by Joy White, "Jah I" by Lee Perry & The Upsetters, "Word (acapella)" by The Gatherers, "War & Peace" by The Upsetters, "Keep On Moving" by Augustus Pablo & The Upsetters, "Keep On Trying" by Susan & Bunny", and "Living My Life" by Keith Rowe & The Upsetters.

Alex PudduFrom The Beginning ... LP
Al Dente (Denmark), 2018. New Copy ... $14.99
Alex Puddu's going right back to the beginning here – serving up some tight, sharp sounds that are very much in the 70s funk mode that first gave him inspiration! And this time around, he's got Lonnie Jordan from War on board – singing on three of the album's great tracks – which helps bring a bit of classic Chicano funk to the mix! Other tunes feature vocals from singers Adrian Wilding and Duane Hobson, and the album also features some great instrumentals too – all with a groove that comes from Puddu's own work on drums, bass, and guitars – in a combo that also includes vibes, congas, tenor, and some sweet electric piano and organ. Titles include "Here For A Change", "Step On Your Ego", "Runaway Boys", "Ocean Drive", "Here For A Change", "Wild Saxophone", "Don't Stop Moving", "Cobra", and "Stormy Weather".

Rare EarthEcology ... CD
Motown, 1970. Used ... $19.99
A stone smoker from Rare Earth – recorded a a time when they were able to easily handle a groove made up of equal parts funk, rock, and soul! The vibe here is almost like War at times – not for the LA touches in the mix, but for the heady and heavy way these guys roll forward – pulling together all the best elements of the underground at the time, and bringing them into their own smoky groove. Instrumentation is wonderful – and some of the cuts have a really great jamming sort of feel – especially the 11 minute reading of "(I Know) I'm Losing You" – originally done by the Temptations, and produced by Norman Whitfield for the album! Other titles include "Long Time Leavin", "Satisfaction Guaranteed", "Nice Place To Visit", "No 1 Man", and a sweet version of "Eleanor Rigby". CD

Todd RundgrenAll Sides Of The Roxy – May 1978 (3CD set) ... CD
Esoteric (UK), 1978. New Copy 3CD ... $24.99
The genius of Todd Rundgren rings out loud and proud here – in the full presentation of a legendary live set from LA in 1978 – known to millions more people than attended, thanks to a live simulcast of the event on nationwide radio! The big FM moment is a key illustration of where Rundgren had gone after his big wave of early 70s hits – as Todd's name was kept alive by the FM stations when AM radio was leaving him behind – while he spun out a non-stop genius of songwriting that refused to be diminished – recording album after album that were filled with very cool tracks that range from experimental numbers to dozens of "shouldda been hits"! All that scope is wonderfully captured here – in a live performance that has members of Hello People and Moogy Klingman working in Todd's tight backing band – as he runs through 2CDs' worth of material from the show, plus additional Roxy tracks too. Titles include "Real Man", "Love Of The Common Man", "You Cried Wolf", "Range War", "Can We Still Be Friends", "Sometimes I Just Don't Know What To Feel", "Black & White", "Dream Goes On Forever", "Eastern Intrigue", "Initiation", "She's Gone", "Hello It's Me", "Just One Victory", "Black Mariah", "Don't You Ever Learn", "The Verb To Love", "Lady Face", "Love In Action", "Hello It's Me", and "Determination".

A jazz album at heart, but one with some distinct Brazilian touches too – a warm blend of the guitar lines of Daniel Santiago with reeds from Josue Lopez and piano from Vitor Goncalves – all wrapped up in a set of rich flowing rhythms! There's some of the sensitivity here that you might have heard on the best indie Brazilian jazz sides from the 80s – some of those smaller label sets we always dug so much – and the guitar and sax (either tenor or soprano, depending on the track) have a great way of dancing around each other – creating some magical interplay over the piano, bass, and drums. Titles include "Gregorian Samba", "Old City", "In The Rain", "Letter To The World", "Children Of The War", "Lagoon", and "Angola's Dance". CD

Chrysalis, 1984. Used ... $1.99
A big big crossover album from the UK ska scene of the early 80s – built upon the ashes of the older Specials group, but still with plenty of the dark edges we'd come to expect in Jerry Dammers work! There's a bit more electric instrumentation at the bottom of the tracks, but the sound is still relatively in the ska-styled groove of the original Specials work – although sometimes maybe inflected with a more straightforward dancefloor bounce, too – which is what really helped some of these tracks get traction at a larger level beyond the ska scene. Over the years, the record's become as classic as the earlier Specials sets – and really lives up to its classic-styled cover image too! Includes the big tracks "Nelson Mandela" and "Racist Friend" – plus "Break Down The Door", "Alcohol", "War Crimes", "Bright Lights", and "Night On The Tiles". CD

2 Tone/Chrysalis, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $20.99 22.99
Killer singles from The Specials – the groundbreaking group who not only re-introduced a side of Jamaican music to the British scene, but also helped a whole new generation fall in love with the funky 45! The tunes here are all ones that were originally issued on those very cool checkerboard label 45s on the UK 2Tone label – an imprint that had a great sense of style right from the start, and which helped bring a perfect focus to the sharp-edged talents of The Specials! So many other groups tried to copy this vibe in later years – but as these sharp singles will show, there's nobody like the originals – as you'll hear on titles that include "Gangsters", "Friday Night Saturday Morning", "Why", "Rudi A Message To You", "Nite Klub", "Too Much Too Young", "Guns Of Navarone", "Rat Race", "Stereotype", "Ghost Town", "War Crimes", "Racist Friend", and "Free Nelson Mandela".

TemptationsSolid Rock ... CD
Gordy/Motown, 1972. New Copy ... $11.99 12.99
A masterful album of righteous trippy soul – recorded during the height of the Temptations' strong association with Norman Whitfield! The record has more than a few political/social conscience songs – like "Take A Look Around", "Stop The War Now", and "Superstar (Remember How You Got Where You Are)" – but the strongest point is the music, more than the message. The arrangements are super funky – with complicated stretched out passages filled with spacey effects, rumbling bass, fuzzy guitars, and cool processing on the vocals. "The End Of Our Road" has some great tight drums, and "What It Is" begins with rolling snare work that's in a Sly Stone sort of groove. Vocals are great as always, and the album also features a long mellow cover of "Ain't No Sunshine". CD

His hair's getting longer and his music a bit more flowing and dramatic – but Gino Vannelli's still going strong here, really opening up in the shine of his own mid 70s pop brilliance! The record's slightly more ambitious than some of Vannelli's earlier efforts – especially on side two's extended "War Suite" – but the overall charm of his music is still very firmly in place, and cast here with a focused, professional groove that's heavy on keyboards, vamping in a tight AM pop way, and produced with that cool flanged-out style on vocals that made so much 70s pop so great! Titles include "Love Of My Life", "Ugly Man", "A New Fix For 76", "Fly Into This Night", "Prelude To The War", "Battle Cry", "Summers Of My Life", and "After The Last Battle". LP, Vinyl record album

Mike WestbrookMarching Song Volumes 1 & 2 (3CD set – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Deram/Turbo (UK), 1969. New Copy 3 CDs ... $18.99
The brilliant third album from Mike Westbrook – a sharp-edged, two volume set with a scathing anti-war theme! The work is Westbrook's first total-concept album, and it's still one of his best – written with an edge that's free from some of the more whimsical touches that showed up in Mike's later years, and played by a core group of British avant soloists with searing intensity! You've never heard large group scoring like this – bold, ambitious, and quite different than most of what's come before. And although the whole thing sounds as if it's going to fall apart at any moment, it always snaps back into a sharp focus just in the nick of time – with brilliant results that bring the same sense of surprise that you might get from, say, a classic album from Charles Mingus or Archie Shepp! Players include Kenny Wheeler and Henry Lowther on trumpets, Mike Gibbs and Paul Rutherford on trombones, John Surman on baritone and soprano sax, Mike Osborne on alto and clarinet, Alan Skidmore on tenor and flute, Brian Smith on tenor, and Harry Miller and Barre Phillips on bass. This set features both volumes of the recording – with titles that include "Landscape", "Hooray", "Other World", "Marching Song", "Transition", "Rosie", "Tension", "Ballad", "Conflict", and "Requiem". Great 3CD set features a full bonus disc of rare material – including the 7" single of "Original Peter" and "Magic Garden" – 1970 recordings of "But It Must Get Better & It Will Get Better" and "When Young" by The Mike Westbrook Quartet, and a 1966 recording of "Marching Song" by the Mike Westbrook Sextet – the last three of which have never been released!
