Warner JepsonTotentanz (clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
Etats-Unis/Superior Viaduct, 1971/1972. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 25.00
Maybe some of the darkest music you'll ever hear to accompany a dance performance – created at the start of the 70s by Bay Area composer Warner Jepson – who uses both a collection of his own found sounds, and a Buchla 100 synthesizer! The approach is very electro-acoustic – as it's hard to distinguish where real sounds end and imagined ones begin – and despite the original intent of this music for a ballet performance, the whole thing's maybe more appropriate as a listening experience – especially the really wonderful sounds on side two, which remind us a lot of the best Dutch electronic experiments from the previous decade!

Ashford & SimpsonLove Will Fix It – The Best Of Ashford & Simpson ... LP
Warner/Groove Line Records (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $23.99
A great selection of work by the team of Nick Ashford and Valerie Simpson! The pair started out doing some excellent work at Motown during the early 70s – but it wasn't until they moved to Warner in the middle of the decade that they began to emerge as the powerhouse act they became for the rest of their career. Nick and Valerie changed the face of duet soul forever – taking it past the simple boy/girl themes of 60s work by artists like Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell or Maxine Brown & Chuck Jackson, into a soaring, adult, hard-grooving mode that forever changed the way male and female voices interacted in soul music. Titles include a few 12" cuts on LP for the first time – "Is It Still Good To Ya (long version)", "Love Don't Make It Right (long version)", "One More Try (long version)", and "Ain't It A Shame (long version)". Other tracks include "Found A Cure", "It Seems To Hang On", "Don't Cost You Nothing", "Over & Over", "Nobody Knows", "It Shows In The Eyes", "Bourgie Bourgie", "Send It", "Somebody Told A Lie", "I'd Know You Anywhere", "Stay Free", "Main Line", "So So Satisfied", and "Have You Ever Tried It".

✨✧ Banda Black RioMaria Fumaca (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Warner/Polysom (Brazil), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
An excellent album by one of the greatest Brazilian funk bands ever – a wonderful blend of funk, jazz, and soul – and a set that rivals any of the best work coming from the US at the time! These guys are right on the money right from the start – moving through sharp changes with effortless ease, yet never in a way that's too slick or commercial – kind of like that perfect balance that Kool & The Gang hit for just a few records in the mid 70s – but with more of a Brazilian feel overall. Jazzy licks abound – and the keyboards, guitar, and horns are just great – but the set's also got some more regional percussion, too – which really rounds out the record wonderfully. The grooves all have a really universal appeal – essential for any fan of funky sounds – and titles include "Mr Funky Samba", "Junia", "Casa Forte", "Na Baixa Do Sapateiro", "Lelbon Via Vaz Lobo", "Baia", "Maria Fumaca", and "Metalurgia".

✨✧ Beau BrummelsBradley's Barn (2LP deluxe edition – colored vinyl) (2018 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Warner/Run Out Groove, 1967. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $32.99
A crucial album in the sound of late 60s Warner – recorded by west coasters The Beau Brummels in the heart of Tennessee, at the legendary studios of country producer Owen Bradley! This meeting of west and country is fantastic – a really incredible extension of earlier folksy rock styles forged by Dylan, Fred Neil, Tim Buckley, and others – handled with incredible care, and a style that's equally honest and ironic – but coming together with a sound that's unlike anything else we can think of – one of those rare few albums that somehow draws from a wealth of inspiration, but manages to make something completely standout in the process – almost a Feelies/Good Earth for its own generation! Tremendous stuff – and titles include "Jessica", "Bless You California", "I'm A Sleeper", "Little Bird", "Turn Around", and "An Added Attraction". Very cool double LP reissue – with loads of bonus tracks that include "Long Black Veil", "Confessions (demo)", "High There", "Deep Water (alt version)", "Love Can Fall A Long Way Down (alt mix)", "Bittersweet", "Jessica (alt version)", "Tan Oak Tree", "Just A Little Bit Of Lovin (demo)", "I Love You Mama (alt version)", "I'll Be Your Baby (alt version)", and "Lift Me (alt take)".

BelchiorBelchior (1974) (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Warner/Polysom (Brazil), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
A great early album from Belchior – much rootsier than some of his later work, with a groove that almost feels like samba soul at times! Arrangements and music are handled by Marcus Vinicius – who uses quick-stepping samba elements on some of the best tracks, mixed with more modern funky styles in this really great way – which creates even more magic with the hauntingly poetic structures of Belchior's lyrics! The songforms are great – very much in the concrete poetry format used on Caetano's Araca Azul album, but with a warmer vibe overall – on titles that include "Bebelo", "Mote E Glosa", "A Palo Seco", "Maquina", "Todo Sujo De Baton", "Rodagem", and "Cemiterio".

Philip Catherine with Marc MoulinStream ... LP
Warner/KTI (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $28.99
One of the coolest records ever from guitarist Philip Catherine, and one of the funkiest too – thanks to a really sharp edge that you won't find on some of his other albums, and lots of Fender Rhodes from the legendary Marc Moulin too! Some of Catherine's other records of the 70s were a bit laidback or noodly – but this set's got a strong, soulful drive all the way through – a nice focus that may well come from the production of Sacha Distel, himself a onetime guitarist! But the group's just got things right on the money, right from the start – with some very strong funky drums from Freddy Rotheir, plus trombone from Jiggs Wigham and both bass and flute from Freddy Deronde. Titles include "Bassline", "Let's Put It Like This", "Stream", "Foire", "Face", "Jeux Interdits", and "Memphis Talk". LP, Vinyl record album

Alice CooperSpecial Forces (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Warner, 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99 21.98
An underrated, lean and hook-filled Alice Cooper effort from the early 80s – go ahead and sign us up for his Special Forces! Alice Cooper knew good and well some of the more macabre-inspired punk and new wave acts followed trails he and his band blazed in the early 70s, and he kind of takes some punk and new wave-inspired turns here in return, and it works WAY better than you might expect! Something about the tighter songs, glossier production, and good use of keyboards work really well with the gruff, gravelly vocals and punchy guitars. A surprising gem. Includes the catchy as hell "Who Do You Think We Are", a cover of Love's "Sven & Seven Is" (again...you wouldn't expect it to work, but it really does!), "Prettiest Cop On The Block", and updated Billion Dollar Babies era "Generation Landslide", "You Want It, You Got It", "Vicious Rumours", "You're A Movie" and more.

Curved AirAirconditioning (picture disc) (2018 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Warner/Esoteric (UK), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
The debut album from Curved Air – a group who had a decidedly different take on the proggish styles of the start of the 70s! For one thing, the group took their name from a Terry Riley tune – already showing their higher consciousness when it came to music – and the lineup also features a young Francis Monkman and Darry Way – the former an artist who'd soon do some great sound library and soundtrack work on the UK scene, the latter a violinist who'd continue to find new spaces for his instrument in years to come! The use of Way's violin is a great addition to the sound here – as he carves out these lean lines next to the more flowing vocals of singer Sonja Kristina – who's got a style that's almost a proggish adaptation of folk modes from a few years before – while the rest of the group comes in with the more expected guitar, keyboards, and drums – but almost always at a level that remains fresh and distinct. Titles include "Hide & Seek", "It Happened Today", "Stretch", "Screw", "Blind Man", "Vivaldi", and "Situations". LP, Vinyl record album

FacesOoh La La (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Warner, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
The final full album from the legendary Faces – a group who've got all their best elements sharply in focus here, in a way that really stands apart from the growing solo fame of Rod Stewart! Rod the god is still at the helm on vocals – and really sounds incredible – but the group energy of performance is what really drives things throughout – the vibe that makes you realize that these guys play together as well as they party together! Ronnie Wood is sublime on guitar, Kenny Jones tears up the drum kit, and Ronnie Lane's sense of timing holds the whole thing together beautifully. Titles include "Silicone Grown", "Cindy Incidentally", "My Fault", "Borstal Boys", "Glad And Sorry", "Just Another Honky", and the title track "Ooh La La" – which features Wood on lead vocals, and has maybe grown on to become one of the best-remembered Faces tracks over the years!

✨✧ Eero Koivistoinen Music SocietyWahoo! ... LP
Warner/Svart (Finland), 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $22.99
Funky funky Finland! Don't be put off by the long name, or the overuse of vowels in the title – because this album's a killer batch of funky jazz, filled with loads of choppy sax riffs, sweet Fender Rhodes licks, and plenty of heavy drums. The record's got a hard fusion groove – and all the tracks are long instrumentals served up with plenty of power, and plenty of ferocity! The set was recorded in Finland in 1972, but it feels more like some killer studio jam from the west coast – played by by a very tight bunch of funky jazz musicians who weren't afraid to go over the top. Titles include "Hot C", "7 Up", "6 Down", "Suite 19", "Bells" and "Wahoo!" LP, Vinyl record album

Lee MorganRoulette Sides (10 inch LP) ... LP
Roulette/Warner, 1960. New Copy ... $17.99 19.98
A lost treasure from Lee Morgan – three superb tracks that were initially issued as one side of a split record done with John Coltrane – at a time when neither of them were really signed to the Roulette Records label! That obscurity led both sets of material to quickly disappear from the record racks – and although the Coltrane material has since been rediscovered, and hailed as a key part of his catalog – this is the first time these Lee Morgan tracks have seen proper release since the 60s! The material is wonderful – really almost a Jazz Messengers session, but with some of the more exotic currents Morgan could bring to his recordings – and the lineup features Lee on trumpet, Wayne Shorter on tenor, and Bobby Timmons on piano – a trio that sounds as great on record as you'd expect. Art Taylor handles drums – instead of Blakey – and the bassist is Jimmy Rowser – and despite the apparent casualness of the recordings, the quality is wonderful – very much in the best spirit of Morgan's Blue Note classics. Titles include the Morgan composition "A Bid For Sid", plus Bobby Timmons' "Minor Strain" and Wayne Shorter's "Suspended Sentence". LP, Vinyl record album

Ed MottaEntre E Ouca (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Warner/Polysom (Brazil), 1992. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
Early soul material from the great Ed Motta – a record that really has the Brazilian singer hitting his stride! Ed's a singer that we've loved for many years, and await eagerly for each new record – but this early 90s set is one of his first great musical moments, a set that has him really finding his voice, and following strongly in the Brazilian soul tradition of his famous uncle, Tim Maia! And although Motta had worked in some more beat-heavy, poppy modes on previous records, this one has a much richer vibe – and shows the love of older 70s styles that would reemerge later on his seminal AOR set – done here with leaner, more stripped down modes that are mighty nice. The songwriting is great – and Motta's voice, as always, is incredible – and the instrumentation features a fair bit of Fender Rhodes and acoustic piano, which really further the warmth of the vocals. Titles include "Bem Longe", "Agora Que O Dia Accordou", "Entre E Ouca", "A Vontade", and "Se Ate As 11". LP, Vinyl record album

New York Rock & Soul RevueNew York Rock & Soul Revue – Live At The Beacon ... LP
Warner/Rhino, 1991. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $26.99 29.98
A collision of generations – as giants of the world of 70s and 80s AOR come together to pay tribute to the soulful styles of the years before! At the time, the album was the sort that really made us cringe – since we were such soul purists back in the 90s – but over the years, we've really come to accept the whole thing both as a well-meaning effort, and more importantly, as a lost chapter of the Donald Fagan/Steely Dan genius – as Fagan produced the set, and really brings a lot of his older music into play! Other artists include Boz Scaggs, Phoebe Snow, and Michael McDonald – but the set also features work from older bluesman Charles Brown – and titles include remakes of "Madison Time", "Knock On Wood", "Shakey Ground", "Lonely Teardrops", "Downing In The Sea Of Love", "Groovin", and "People Got To Be Free" – plus nice takes on "Chain Lightning", "Pretzel Logic", and "Green Flower Street".

✨✧ VariousBuried Country – The Story Of Aboriginal Country Music ... LP
Warner/Mississippi, New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A huge overview of one of the most obscure strands of country music you'll ever hope to hear – not just an Australian take on the genre, but one that's served up here exclusively by artists of aboriginal origins! The style's definitely country, but neither country soul, nor familiar sounds of Nashville either – and instead, this work may well even be more unique than some of the more mainstream country work that's dominated Australian over the past few decades. A few tracks feature non-English vocals, and are especially striking – and you might think of this music as being the product of the well-known Aussie love of country music, filtering out to the aboriginal scene, and becoming something else entirely. Titles include "The Coloured Land" by Jimmy Little, "Black & White Cat" by Brown Bros, "The Resurrection" by Bobby McLeod, "They Call It Cut A Rug" by Dougie Young, "Jailanguru Pakarnu" by Warumpi Band, "Gurindji Blues" by Galarrwuy Yunupingu, "Yanany Baliba" by Kankawa Nagarra, and "Sick Of Being Treated Like A Mangy Old Dog".

Rare grooves from the French scene's trippiest years – the kind of cuts that will come as a good addition to your well-played records by Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin! Most of this work is much more obscure, but mostly comes from the same time – the late 60s and early 70s, despite the date range in the title – and the artists are working in an equally explosive approach to French pop – using elements from psychedelic music, electric jazz, and funk – to create these amazing little masterpieces in sound! Even if you don't dig the language, your ears will find plenty here to love – and titles include "L'Homme De L'Univers" by Bernard Chabert, "Les Magiciennes" by Richard De Bordeaux, "Le Musicien" by Lawrence, "La Fille A La Moto" by Dani, "Laisse Ta Main Dans Ma Main" by Philippe Chatel, "L'amour Sans Amour" by Michel Zacha, "Le Coeur En Julliet" by Isabelle, "Liberte Equalite Fraternite" by JJ & Beb, "La Fille Du Premier" by Paipllon, and "Licornes" by Igor Wakhevitch.

The fantastic first album from ZZ Top – already a heady mix of Texas blues and psych roots, served up into a style that's completely the group's own – but which hasn't yet been watered down by commercial cliches and MTV! The sound here really puts these guys much more in the company of the fantastic Texas garage psych scene of the late 60s – with a really strong focus on the amazing guitar of Billy Gibbons, and the way he can compact down so many elements into one very unique tone – but without ever having to show off as a blues rocker either. The blend is perfect, the edge is razor sharp, and even if these guys never had any later hits, the record would have been an underground gem! Titles include "Neighbor Neighbor", "Shaking Your Tree", "Brown Sugar", "Squank", "Going Down To Mexico", "Backdoor Love Affair", and "Just Got Back From Baby's". LP, Vinyl record album

Bob Ezrin's producing for the first time, and if the songs and the whole show isn't yet as menacingly theatrical as it would get to be in the following couple of years, the angry anthemic vibe is here and it's heavy!

Seduction and witchcraft aren't really two words we'd readily associate with each other – but sexy witch Louise Huebner manages to make both of them work together nicely! The album's quite an odd one – in which the self-proclaimed modern witch Huebner speaks about lots of spooky stuff – telling you how to cast spells, invoke various demons, and unlock magical energy. Her voice is recorded with lots of echoey effects – and there's some great backings behind her – "cybernetic music" from the legendary team of Louis and Bebe Barron, who both really help add to the spooky feel of the set! Titles include "The Colepterous Charm", "The Turkish Bean Spell For Tender Love", "The Emotional Bondage Spell", "Demon Spell For Energy", "Earthquake Spell For Unwanted Lovers", and "Seduction Spells From Around The World".

A lot of folks tried to designate Prince's massive, fearless, beginning-of-the-end-of-the-80s epic Sign O The Times as his What's Going On – which was never really fair to Prince, or to Marvin Gaye for that matter – but it's filled with great cuts – including the minimalist funky groover of a title track, with its superficial social consciousness that's very much of its 80s era, and all the more fascinating for that – plus massive hit "U Got The Look", "If I Was Your Girlfriend", "I Could Never Take The Place Of Your Man", "The Cross", "Hot Thing", and "Starfish & Coffee".

✨✧ ReplacementsFor Sale – Live At Maxwell's 1986 ... LP
Rhino/Warner, 1986. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
It's been many years since The Replacements made their amazing music – but the genius of the group lives anew, thanks to the release of this tremendous live set from 1986! The group had moved from an indie label to Sire by the time of the show, but there's a searing intensity to most of the tracks that recalls their Twin/Tone material at its best – much more punkish than in the final years of the group – played with a deftness and speed that they didn't even have a few years before! In fact, if we were to find a way to describe the set, we might well call it the great lost album between Let It Be and Tim – as it combines all the best aspects of those sets, and has impeccable songwriting mixed with the raw edge that the group had at the start. The recording quality is wonderful – the set was captured at the legendary Maxwell's club in Hoboken, back when Hoboken was cool enough to have a scene – and titles include fantastic remakes of "Fox On The Run" and "Black Diamond" – plus "Tommy Gets His Tonsils Out", "Kiss Me On The Bus", "Hitchin A Ride", "If Only You Were Lonely", "Hold My Life", "I Will Dare", "Color Me Impressed", "Dose Of Thunder", "Bastards Of Young", "Baby Strange", "Take Me Down To The Hospital", "Left Of The Dial", "God Damn Job", "Answering Machine", "Gary's Got A Boner", "Waitress In The Ky", "Favorite Thing", and "Can't Hardly Wait".

A classic to end all classics – and the record that showed the world that the kung fu genre could be every bit as funky as American crime and action films! Lalo Schifrin's at the height of his powers on this set – working in a blend of raw guitars, rolling bass, and choppy rhythms that groove about as fast as Bruce Lee's hands move on the screen in the film – and the album's a real standout in the 70s soundtrack scene, well worth all the hype and attention that's been given to it over the years! The record's one you'll dig if you're a fan of funk, or a student of Schifrin – and even after the passage of decades, it's still a tough soundtrack to beat.

The second of Dio's twin masterpieces – a second album knockout that followed Holy Diver by a single year! The biggest difference this time out is the addition of full time keyboard player Claude Schnell to the band, making Dio a quintet – but what the keyboards do NOT do is air out the heaviness. This remains a headbanging classic, with songs as heavy as any in the Dio canon. Like they did on Holy Diver, the band balances a melodic sensibility with heavy rock in a way that would prove hugely influential – we can't imagine the quietly melodic to massively heavy transitions on Metallica's Master Of Puppets LP could've been what they are without the opening minute of the title track here, but this whole thing is a win – with "We Rock", "Mystery", Breathless", "I Speed At Night", "One Night In The City", "Evil Eyes", "Eat Your Heart Out" and "Egypt (The Chains Are On)".

Alice ColtraneWorld Spirituality Classics Vol 1 – The Ecstatic Music Of Alice Coltrane Turiyasangitananda (with bonus download) ... LP
Luaka Bop, Mid 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $26.99 28.98
An incredible side of the talents of the legendary Alice Coltrane – obscure 80s material that was recorded in the years after her famous records on Impulse and Warner Brothers – only ever issued on cassette at the time! The tracks have Alice still very much in the same spiritual territory as before – but also mixing in some elements from American gospel music – not in any sort of Christian way, but just in terms of the use of a larger choir on some of the tracks, whose stompingly rhythmic presence can really drive a few of the tunes! Other tracks are more spare, and really focus on Coltrane's vocals and work on organ – as well as a bit of harp and string backings too – all at a level that really pushes the transcendental modes she first brought to light in the 70s. Given that most of us never got our hands on the original tapes, the whole thing is a real treasure trove – and presented with nicely detailed notes, too. Titles include "Er Ra", "Om Shanti", "Om Rama", "Rama Guru", "Haria Naryan", "Krishna Japaye", "Rama Katha", "Keshava Murahara", and "Journey To Satchindananda". LP, Vinyl record album

The sound is a bit more expanded here – not in a commercial way, but just in a style that has the group trying out more things – some interesting rhythms, offbeat guitar passages, and maybe even more of a vocal presence – although it's clearly the drums and basslines that are still driving the whole thing along! Production is by Allen Toussaint and Marshall Sehorn – again in that great style they were hitting at Warner – and titles include "Soul Island", "Flower Song", "Gettin Funkier All the Time", "Do the Dirt", "Cabbage Alley", and "Stay Away" – plus a version of Neil Young's "Birds"!

✨✧ West Coast Pop Art Experimental BandWest Coast Pop Art Experimental Band – Part One (mono) ... LP
Reprise/Jackpot, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 19.99
The initial uttering from the West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band – a group with a heady sound that definitely lives up to their name! There's less "pop art" going on here than just trippy psych – served up at a level that makes the group one of the best bigger label examples of the style at the time – and definitely a lot more edgey than some of their labelmates on Warner. Jimmy Bowen produced, but really keeps all the edges intact – and titles include the completely insane "Help I'm A Rock" (actually about a rock calling for help!) – plus "Shifting Sands", "1906", "Transparent Day", "Here's Where You Belong", and "If You Want This Love". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono version – from the original master tapes!)
