Spoils Of WarSpoils Of War (180 gram pressing – with bonus 7" single) ... LP
Wah Wah (Spain), Late 60s. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $28.99
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

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 ... LP
United Artists, 1971. Very Good+ ... $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".

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

WarOutlaw ... LP
RCA, 1982. Very Good+ ... $6.99
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".

✨✧ WarWhy Can't We Be Friends? ... LP
United Artists, 1975. Very Good+ ... $14.99
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".

War did the music for this funky soundtrack to an early Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs film, and although most of the stuff on here is just typical War stuff, there's one track called "Flying Machine" that's a long funky chase scene-type track that's worth the price of the album alone! Other tracks include "The Kingsmen Sign", "Junk Yard", "Superdude", and "Youngblood". One of the best War LPs! LP, Vinyl record album

MCA, 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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". LP, Vinyl record album

A surprising killer by War! "Good Good Feelin" is from the group's later years, but the track's got a snapping hard percussive edge that they hardly even had in their earlier recordings! There's a wonderful disco breaking bass and drum bit on the intro – really going to town before the vocals come in. "Galaxy" is a later funky classic by the group – strutting out with some sweet funky riffing, ensemble vocals, and a powerful groove that's always been a dancefloor pleaser! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Far Out/MGM, 1971. Used 2LP Gatefold ... 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 a long version of "Paint It Black", plus "Bare Back Ride", "Sun/Moon", "Pretty Colors", "Gun", "Nuts Seeds & Life", "They Can't Take Away Our Music", and "Spirit".

Chess, 1974. Used ... Out Of Stock
A killer moment in 70s soul – but kind of a lost gem, too – given that the album was issued by Chess Records, but features a number of big names who mostly recorded for other companies! The live performance was recorded at the first annual benefit for the Black Congressional Caucus – and the tunes have the right sort of righteous energy to match the important political event – really special performances that include a searing 9 minute version of "Wild & Peaceful" by Kool & The Gang, super-heavy versions of "Give Me Your Love" by Curtis Mayfield and the Mayfield-penned "On & On" by Gladys Knight & The Pips. War follows up with a smoking Hammond-heavy take on "Gypsy Man" – and even Jimmy Witherspoon sounds pretty darn great on a take of his classic "Goin Down Slow". LP, Vinyl record album

Funky drums and some mighty nice horns – a real killer from Black Market Brass, and maybe one of their most intense tracks to date! There's almost an Afro Funk vibe here, but the style is even more freewheeling – fast grooves and horns that are incredibly deft, but also have lots of space to freak out and do their thing. "Into The Thick" follows with a similar groove – and even has a freaky fuzz guitar solo before some heavy drums! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Sister Irene O'ConnorFire Of God's Love ... LP
Wyrd War, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
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".

The album's supposed to feature songs from old-timey radio shows of the 30s and 40s, but Jimmy Bowen re-casts the songs (with the help of Ernie Freeman) into these campy 60s tunes, almost like a Laugh-In flashback of old TV, no surprise since Gary Owens acts as the announcer! Titles include "Superman March", "FBI In Peace & War", "Batman Theme", "Captain Gorgeous", and "The Green Hairnet". LP, Vinyl record album

High Note/Music On Vinyl (UK), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99
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".

"Evolver" has this lyric and an overall vibe that maybe places it in the territory of War during their glory days – and "Things You Say" is a bit looser, but no less funky – with a cool wah-wah guitar line that skirts the core groove next to the vocals! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Frontline/Get On Down, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 20.98
A great moment for Jamaican singer Johnny Clarke – who really got a chance to shine in the mainstream with this classic album for Virgin – a record that should have given Clarke the same kind of international fame as some of his contemporaries on Island Records! All the element here are right on the money – a lean rockers groove with instrumentation by The Agrovators – who beautifully balance a sense of craft and understatement that really lets Johnny shine in the spotlight! Bunny Lee produced, King Tubby mixed, and titles include "Rockers Time Now", "African Roots", "Satta Massagana", "Declaration Of Rights", "They Never Love Poor Marcus", "Natty Dreadlocks Stand Up Right", "Prophecy A-Fulfilled", and "Stop The Tribal War".

An atmospheric solo effort from Dede – the lead singer for the Tiny Hearts project with Waajeed & Tim K, the latter of whom is on board as producer. Dede delivers a hazy little gem here with kind of a latenight, weary electro pop-soul mood on most tunes, with some moody interludes for added texture. 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.

Barbara Jean English's first album – and a strong mix of mellow ballads and harder soul, all put together by the great George Kerr with a strong New Jersey soul groove. The album was issued on the small Alithia label – home to Kerr's other great project from the time, The Escorts – but it's also got a feel that's very much in the mode of some of the work on All Platinum or Stang at the time. Titles include "Fair Weather Lover", "You're Gonna Need Somebody To Love You", "Comin Or Goin", "I Wanna Be Ready", and "Key In The Mailbox", one of our favorite female soul songs ever!

Soundway (UK), 2017. New Copy ... $10.99 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

The album's nicely free of some of the stodginess of some of Ella's Songbook albums from the same time – with light and jazzy backing by a group that includes Jim Hall, Paul Smith, Wilfred Middlebrooks, and Gus Johnson. Titles include "Mack The Knife", "How High The Moon", "Too Darn Hot", "Gone With The Wind", "Misty", and "Summertime". LP, Vinyl record album

Smooth as silk, with plenty of soul – a classic set that has the guitar of Eric Gale produced by the legendary Allen Toussaint! The cross of talents is pretty compelling – and although the album's not a New Orleans funk outing, it definitely shares some of the more creative elements that you'd get from some of Toussaint's other side projects at the end of the 70s. A few numbers definitely have a bit more bump than you'd expect from a fsuion date like this – and Toussaint himself plays piano and moog on the record, and even sings a tiny bit. Robert Dabon plays Fender Rhodes – and titles include "You Got My Life In Your Hands", "War Paint", "Touch Of Silk", "Au Privave", "With You I'm Born Again", and "Once In A Smile". CD

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".

Gap BandGap Band (1979)/Gap Band II/Gap Band III ... CD
Mercury/BGO (UK), 1979/1980. New Copy 2 CDs ... $15.99
Massive music in a wonderful package – three funky classics from The Gap Band! First up is the group's self-titled album from 1979 – the start of the legendary second chapter for the Gap Band – the point when the group had reemerged as the tight funky trio of the Wilson Brothers, with a groove that would really set them up nicely for the 80s! This first album in the new format has a wonderfully tight feel – still plenty of sharp edges that echo their earlier groove, but a leaner quality too – one that's got the bass and drums snapping together wonderfully, really setting the tone for the heaviest grooves. There's also a few mellower cuts too – which really sound great, and give the record the same sort of balance you might hear on work by Heaven & Earth at the time. War's Lonnie Simmons produced – and held the cash bag all the way to the bank! Titles include "I'm In Love", "Got To Get Away", "Messin With My Mind", "Shake", "Baby Baba Boogie", "Open Your Mind Wide", and "I Can Sing". Gap Band II features mean, lean grooves from The Gap Band – a legendary batch of mainstream funk from the end of the 70s – and a record that really has the trio working at the top of their game! There's a wonderful balance here between funky numbers and mellow ones – the latter of which really help pace the record nicely, giving it a depth that takes the group way beyond the cliches of some of their contemporaries, and firmly establishing the Gap Band as one to watch for the 80s! Titles include the massive "I Don't Believe You Want To Get Up & Dance" – with its classic "Oops Upside Your Head" refrain – plus "Who Do You Call", "No Hiding Place", "Steppin Out", "You Are My High", and "Party Lights". Gap Band III is sagreat one from the Gap Band – funky gems and sinister groovers – the best of both worlds for the group! Tunes like "Burn Rubber On Me (When You Want To Hurt Me)" and "Humpin" packed 80s dance floors for good reason, and put the band in steady rotation, while numbers like "Yearning For Your Love" showed the band could drop the tempo, stretch out a bit, and deliver the mighty mellow. This one's certainly at the top of the heap of 80s groovers, as far as we're concerned – a record that really took the Gap Band over the top! Other tracks include "Nothin' Comes To The Sleepers", "Are You Living", "The Way", "Gash Gash Gash" and more. CD

Soul Temple, 2013. Used 2 CDs ... $6.99
Ghostface Killah and Adrian Younge team up for this intriguing collaboration – one with a promising concept and they deliver on it in full – shadowboxing their way to a knockout! On the mic tip, Ghostface is in his comfort zone here – 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. 2CD deluxe edition includes the full instrumentals on disc 2!

The original book behind one of the creepiest movies of the 70s – a tale of Nazis hiding out in New York, up to nefarious deeds decades after the war! The book is maybe even more compelling than the movie – as it really presents the story through the eyes of the main character, Tom Levy – a marathon runner who stumbles upon a situation that's way over his head, but has nothing to do but react and respond! William Goldman wrote the book with the kind of fast-paced prose that made him a big seller in the paperback racks – and this edition features an introduction from John Schlesinger, who directed the 70s film. 279 pages, softcover.

Raid On Entebbe hails from 10 years later, and features Charles Bronson in a hijacking thriller – set to a score by David Shire, then a great talent for such a film! Morituri dominates the CD, with 18 tracks in all – followed by 4 from Entebbe – and titles include "Traffic Jam", "Assignment In Macao", "Boat Drill", "A Lost Cause", "The Hijacking", "The Raid", "The Return", and "The Prisoners".

Charlie HadenLiberation Music Orchestra ... CD
Impulse, 1969. Used ... $5.99
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

✨✧ Eddie HarrisIs It In ... LP
Atlantic, 1974. Very Good- ... $2.99
One of Eddie's groovier Varitone albums, and a record that has a very electric sound to it! At times, Eddie's electric sax is so off-beat that you'd think he was playing a synthesizer instead of a sax, but in true Harris form, he always keeps it funky, and even the weird sounds have a great groove to them. Tracks include "Space Commerical", "Funkaroma", "Happy Gemini", "Look Ahere", and "It's War". LP, Vinyl record album
