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".

Banks & Steelz (RZA & Paul Banks)Anything But Words ... LP
Warner, 2016. New Copy 2 LPs ... $14.99 21.98
Wu Tang mastermind and all around modern renaissance man RZA teams up with Interpol vocalist Paul Banks...and it works. Wow! Considering the pros and cons of the contemporary musical landscape, one of the major pros is the cross-pollinating possibilities of what would've seemed crazy in the past. Still, the inspiration that might make a solid single happen with disparate figures rarely extends to an album – which is what makes Banks & Steelz such a leftfield win. RZA rhyming over hip hop/synth pop hybrid production and sharing vocals and production duties with Banks – with guest appearances by fellow Wu vets Meth, Ghost and Masta Killa, plus Kool Keith and Florence Welch. Includes "Giant", "Ana Electronic", "Sword In The Stone" feat Kool Keith, "Wild Season" woth Florence Welch, "Conceal", "Love And War" with Ghostface, "Can't Hardly Feel", "One By One", "Gonna Make It" and "Point Of View" with Method Man & Masta Killa.

Black SabbathBlack Sabbath (180 gram red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Warner, 1970. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99 21.99
Huge, dark, and heavy – an album of mythical proportions, and that's a lot to say for a mainstream album – especially one that crossed over as big as this one! It would be hard to imagine the modern rock landscape without this album or group, who provided the template for so much music to follow – and the soundtrack to many bong-fueled excursions to the dark side – a huge legacy in sound, but one that may well still be best begun on this landmark self-titled album! Titles include "Black Sabbath", "The Wizard", "Behind The Wall Of Sleep", "NIB", "Wicked World", and "Warning". LP, Vinyl record album

Black SabbathNever Say Die (180 gram gray vinyl) ... LP
Warner, 1978. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99 21.99
An overlooked gem from the initial run of Black Sabbath – the last album to feature Ozzy Osborne on vocals, and a set that really hones the group's power of the previous years! You might expect a more commercial outing from the cover – or maybe think that these guys were trying on some newer waves at the end of the 70s – but honestly, the guitars are as sharp as ever, Ozzy's vocals are nice and fierce, and there's a cool, compressed vibe that really shows these guys influencing a new generation with their music. The bass is maybe not as heavy as before, but that seems to be the only point of power missing from the pentagram – on titles that include "Never Say Die", "Junior's Eyes", "Johnny Blade", "Shock Wave", "Air Dance", "Swinging The Chain", and "Breakout".

Black SabbathParanoid (2LP 180 gram pressing – with bonus tracks) ... LP
Nems/Warner, 1971. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $29.99 31.99
Quite possibly the greatest moment of genius ever from Black Sabbath – and a genre-changing record that influenced generations! The group are at their lean, raw best here – free from any cliches at all, and working in an incredibly heady brew of fuzzy guitar, romping bass, and dark drums – all topped by the instantly recognizable screech of the young Ozzy Osborne! Guitarist Tony Iommi virtually redefines rock use of the guitar with this record alone – and the Oz follows suit with some of the creepiest vocals set to record ever. Titles include the classics "Paranoid" and "Iron Man", plus "War Pigs", "Planet Caravan", "Electric Funeral", "Hand Of Doom", and "Rat Salad". Features a full album of bonus tracks too – including instrumentals of "War Pigs", "Iron Man", "Electric Funeral", "Hand Of Doom", and "Fairies Wear Boots" – and alternate lyrics versions of "Paranoid" and "Planet Caravan".

Warner, 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99 21.99
The grandest scale and most elaborately furnished Black Sabbath album to this point – but they still bring the heavy! The title track is one of the most influential metal songs ever, with the foreboding lyrics, trudging stomp of a rhythmic pace and those bridges that are almost pretty – and the most of the rest of the album is great, too – more carefully produced than the previous few without compromising the menace. Titles include "A National Acrobat", "Fluff", "Sabbra Cadabra", "Spiral Architect", "Looking For Today", and "Who Are You". LP, Vinyl record album

Deep PurpleFireball (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Warner, 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $16.99 24.98
A definite fireball from the legendary early lineup of Deep Purple – a record that has the group soaring to the skies in a blazing blend of guitars, keyboards, bass, and drums! A set like this is seminal for understanding just how far rock music stepped in just a few short years – because back in the mid 60s, these guys might have been slavishly laying out blues riffs, or trying to copy their American heroes – but those roots are completely subsumed in the band's own style, and delivered with a dexterity that's truly amazing – a brash, balls-out quality that should be given everything it's trying to claim – because a record like this doesn't need to answer to anyone! Titles include "Fireball", "No No No", "Anyone's Daughter", "Demon's Eye", "The Mule", and "No One Came". LP, Vinyl record album

Deep PurpleMachine Head (clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
Warner, 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $14.99 21.98
One of the crowning classics from the early years of Deep Purple – and a set that will forever be remembered for giving the world the classic rock anthem "Smoke On The Water"! Yet the record as a whole is even better – and is filled with some long-burning, hard-wailing tracks that easily put Deep Purple in the company of the heaviest groups of their generation – thanks to some killer contributions from Ritchie Blackmore's guitar! The whole thing packs a hell of a punch when taken in a full dose – from the start of "Highway Star", to the last notes of "Space Truckin" – and all the great in-between sounds from "Pictures Of Home", "Maybe I'm A Leo", "Never Before", "Lazy", and "Smoke On The Water".

Terry DolanTerry Dolan ... LP
Warner/High Moon, 1972. New Copy ... $28.99 30.99
A never-issued album, but one that stands with the best creative California work of the early 70s – especially that huge wave of new singer/songwriters that flowed from the studios in Los Angeles and the Bay Area! Terry Dolan hails from the latter, and sounds superb on this set of tracks that was originally intended for release by Warner Brothers in 1972, then scrapped at the last minute – one of those great "why?" moments in the history of a record company, as the set may well have been an instant classic if it was released! Terry's got a bit of a down-home vibe at times, but mixes that quality with some well-balanced production from Nicky Hopkins and Pete Sears – in a way that's never a slavish attempt to copy modes, and maybe more in the Gene Clark territory of really finding something new. Both the lyrics and Dolan's vocals are wonderful – and titles include "Purple An Blonde", "Rainbow", "Inlaws & Outlaws", "See What Your Love Can Do", "Magnolia", and "Burgundy Blues".

Earth Wind & FireEarth Wind & Fire ... LP
Warner, 1971. New Copy ... $19.99 21.98
Earth, Wind & Fire's first album – recorded at a time when the group recently had ties to the Chicago soul and jazz scenes, and a range of experience that ran the gamut from work with Sun Ra, the Artistic Heritage Ensemble, The Pharoahs, Ramsey Lewis, and countless other influential groups. Headed up by Maurice White on drums and percussion, the group forged an amazing blend of all these influences, creating a future soul sound that pushed black music to the next level – taking a wealth of previously underground modes of expression, and fusing them into a soaring sound that would soon put them at the top of the charts. This album's a lot looser and freer than their Columbia albums – with plenty of raw funk and some nice off-beat jazz soling. Includes the classic break track "C'Mon Children", plus "Fan The Fire", "Bad Tune", and "Moment Of Truth". LP, Vinyl record album

Earth Wind & FireNeed Of Love ... LP
Warner, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 21.98
One of the two early Earth Wind & Fire LPs recorded for Warner – and the one that shows their amazing roots in the avant-garde jazz scene in Chicago! At the forefront, the record's a righteous soul album with an ensemble funk sound – but deeper in, there's a lot of jazz-based playing, and a number of moments that almost get "out" in the solos! Surely this one couldn't have been made without the spiritual advancements in jazz made by the AACM – and EWF couldn't have helped rubbing shoulders with those players, considering that they all often gigged together in the Chicago studio scene, and that they'd also shared some time together in groups like The Pharoahs and Phil Cohran's Artistic Heritage Ensemble. Titles include "Energy", "Beauty", and a nice remake of Donny Hathaway's "Everything is Everything". LP, Vinyl record album

Faces (Small Faces)First Step (colored vinyl) ... LP
Warner, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $17.99 19.98
The first album ever from The Faces – a mighty merger of half of the old Small Faces with the young Rod Stewart and Ron Wood, fresh from the Jeff Beck group! The meeting of talents really set The Faces on fire – bringing even sharper focus to the group's previous sound, and giving it a stellar frontman in the face of Stewart – who was still brilliantly soulful here, and way far from all the cliches he'd spew in later years! The guitars are fantastic, the rhythms very raw – and the whole record romps along with this messy blend of rootsy elements and garagey power – never letting up the sonic onslaught for a minute. In the US, Warner still tried to market the group by using "Small Faces" on the cover – but trust us, the sound is way different than before – as you'll hear on cuts that include "Stone", "Around The Plynth", "Looking Out The Window", "Nobody Knows", "Wicked Messenger", and the classic "Three Button Hand Me Down".

Flamin GrooviesShake Some Action (180 gram red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Warner/4 Men With Beards, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 23.99
A great move in a fresh direction for the Flaming Groovies – a set that has the group working with producer Dave Edmunds, and hitting this sweet power pop sort of sound! The Groovies still have all the tight energy of before – but they also seem to be paying tribute to an older vintage of British material – as evidenced by their 60s look on the cover, and the album's back cover parody of a stance by The Beatles! The short tracks are plenty tuneful, and Edmunds has a way of compressing the fuzz down tightly, but never in a way that makes things sound slick or commercial. Vocal chorus bits are especially great – surprisingly catchy, almost in a Brit Invasion way – and titles include "Shake Some Action", "You Tore Me Down", "I Saw Her", "Teenage Confidential", "I Can't Hide", "She Said Yeah", and "Sometimes".

Gang Of FourSolid Gold (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Warner, 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99 21.99
A stunning second set from the mighty Gang Of Four – and a record that's got all the power and politics of their famous Entertainment debut! The set's got some wonderfully heavy basslines amidst the scratchy guitar that makes the group so great – but nothing's too polished, certainly not as in their crossover club modes to come – and the call/response vocal style of Andy Gill and Jon King is tremendous – a very fresh way to deliver the message, and one that's still never been matched all these many years later. Titles include "Paralyzed", "What We All Want", "Why Theory", "If I Could Keep It For Myself", "Cheeseburger", "The Republic", "Outside The Trains Don't Run On Time", "In The Ditch", "A Hole In The Wallet", and "He'd Send In The Army".

Eddie HazelGame, Dames, & Guitar Thangs (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Warner/Be With (UK), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99 29.99
A massively tripped-out set of guitar-based funk – played to perfection by the legendary Eddie Hazel, best known for his work in the George Clinton P-Funk empire! The album offers a different side of Eddie's talents – one that's produced with a smoothly compressed California groove, in a mode that's almost an extension of some of the themes explored by Shuggie Otis on his own 70s albums – taken with a bit more of a P-Funk style. George Clinton produced the set with Eddie – and the tunes have a nice slow-stepping groove that really opens up the guitar solos wonderfully. The record kicks off with a massive cover of "California Dreamin" – but the whole thing's great, with a wonderfully unified feel throughout! Other titles include "Frantic Moment", "What About It?", "So Goes The Story", "Physical Love", and a great cover of "I Want You (She's So Heavy)". LP, Vinyl record album

Louise HuebnerSeduction Through Witchcraft (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Warner, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
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".

Warner, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $20.99 22.98
A big 70s classic from The Meters – a set that broke the group way out of the indie funk ghetto, and firmly put them on the map with a larger soul audience at the time! There's still plenty of roots in the music, but there's also a bit more attention to the overall song structure too – not just vamps or instrumental riffs, but more fully-formed numbers that are really coming together here – with great help in the studio from Allen Toussaint! The group has a nice guitar-heavy sound on the bottom – a style that's different than their rougher early recordings for Josie, but still done with just the right blend of New Orleans funk and nicely grooving soul – and titles include "Middle Of The Road", "Out In The Country", "Love Slip Upon Ya", "Running Fast", and their classic "Fire On The Bayou".

David Axelrod/Cannonball AdderleyMessiah ... LP
RCA, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
David Axelrod takes on Handel's Messiah – and the result is an amazingly complex set of music – very similar to his earlier albums on Capitol Records, and his Warner work with the Electric Prunes! If you love the Axe, you'll find plenty to love here – spare, dark orchestrations, often with a subtle hint of funk in the rhythms, some jazzy flourishes, and this bold sense of studio majesty that marks Axelrod as one of the most inventive producers of his time! The sound's one that gave birth to a whole generation of hip hoppers and beatheads – and the proceedings are conducted by Cannonball Adderley, with a feel that's similar to other Adderley/Axelrod high-concept sets – like Soul Of The Bible or Soul Zodiac. Titles include "Overture", "Worthy Is the Lamb", "Behold Recitative", "Comfort Ye My People", and "And The Angel Said Unto Them". LP, Vinyl record album

The great self-titled Alice Clark LP on Mainstream plus earlier singles for Warner Brothers and unreleased tracks – the complete studio recordings from '68-72 – in one great set! There weren't many vocal albums on the Mainstream label during the early 70s, and this rare soul side is a real overlooked gem! Alice Clark has a rich soulful voice, with a style that sounds a bit like Esther Marrow, mixed with some of the lead vocalists in Voices Of East Harlem – a really right-on sort of sound that's totally great, and way hipper than most 70s chart soul! Arrangements are by Ernie Wilkins, who brings in a touch of jazz – but again, with a much hipper feel than most of his other backings – and most of the tracks are quite obscure, well-written tunes – of the sort of material you might expect to hear sung by Gil Scott-Heron or Donny Hathaway. Includes "Don't You Care", "Charms Of The Arms Of Love", "Maybe This Time", "Looking At Life", "Hey Girl", "Don't Wonder Why", "It Takes Too Long To Learn To Live Alone", "Hard Hard Promises" and the rest from the classic and always sought self-titled album from 1972 – plus great earlier Warner Brothers singles "You Hit Me (Right Where It Hurts Me)" and "Heaven's Will (Must Be Obeyed)" from 1969, and the previously unreleased "Before Her Time".

Electric PrunesI Had Too Much To Dream (Last Night) ... LP
Reprise, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99
An early moment of genius from The Electric Prunes – and exactly the kind of record that shows why they were a cut above their contemporaries, and why Warner really backed them strongly right from the start! There's a depth here that rivals some of the group's Sunset Strip contemporaries – and although David Axelrod's not working with them on the record, there's still lots of dark corners and sharp edges – really thoughtful sounds that are spun out wonderfully on fuzzy guitars and organ, with some nicely subtle drums in the rear. Tracks include "I Has Too Much To Dream (Last Night)", "Try Me On For Size", "Get Me To the World On Time", "About A Quarter To Nine", and "Luvin". LP, Vinyl record album

Linda JonesHypnotized (180 gram pressing – with bonus 7" single) (2015 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Loma/Soul Brother (UK), 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
One of the greatest female singers on the east coast scene at the end of the 60s – heard here on a classic Warner Brothers set that includes some of her best-remembered tracks! At some level, the set's a prequel to Linda's later recordings for the Stang/All Platinum label – as it features production and arrangements by the great George Kerr – who really has a way with slow-moving soul tunes, and the kind of sad-tinged tracks that Jones always did so well! Plus, his raw production really brings out some of the deeper soul qualities in Linda's voice – a mode that's quite a surprise at times, and presented here in a way that's far beyond any of the Aretha Franklin-styled cliches of other singers. Jones is a tremendously unique talent in female soul, and this album's her lasting legacy – a true treasure with cuts that include the hit "Hypnotized", plus loads of other nice ones like "Last Minute Miracle", "Give My Love A Try", "You Can't Take It", "What've I Done", and "I Can't Stand It". Also comes with a bonus 45 – with "I Just Can't Live My Life" and "My Heart Needs A Break"! LP, Vinyl record album

The Replacements look a lot more punk rock on the cover than on some of their later albums for Warner Brothers – and they sound a lot more punk, too – packing in 18 short songs on this early set that blisters with their youthful, inventive energy! Even working at a level that's hard and fast, Paul Westerberg is still a hell of a songwriter and singer – and manages to pack these songs with a depth of expression that most of his contemporaries wouldn't hit until years later – that open, honest approach that had these guys coming out of nowhere, and blowing everyone's mind at the time.

A rare live performance from the late, great Allen Toussaint – served up here on vinyl for the first time ever! The record captures Toussaint in Philly – working in front of a very lively crowd, during a time when his star was shining especially bright, thanks to a series of recordings for Warner Brothers. The spirit here follows those classic sides, but with a slightly looser feel – and the record also features a bit of patter from Allen, and a cool medley, done with help from New Orleans saxophonist Gary Brown.

Loma/Future Days, Mid 60s. New Copy ... $13.99 22.99
The first days of the legendary Loma Records – a 60s side-label at Warner Brothers, and one with a rock-solid reputation for top-shelf soul! Loma never hit the heights of Atlantic, Stax, or Motown – but the quality of the work on this collection is every bit as wonderful as the output from those labels – and maybe even more special, too – as lots of th tracks were never circulated that strongly at the time – acting a lot more like indie soul from the funky 45 underground than work from a much bigger label! The package is a wonderful representation of the Loma legacy from start to finish – 16 killer 60s soul tracks pulled from Loma singles – served up with detailed notes on the label and music, and titles that include "Baby Baby Don't Know Know" by The Voice Box, "Something's Burning" by The Marvellos, "Runnin Around" by Tony Amaro & The Chariots, "Wake Me Up Baby" by Paul Days, "Good Lovin" by The Olympics, "Satisfied" by Ben Aiken, "Everybody Jerk" by Bob & Earl, "I'm A Lover" by Bobby Freeman, "Bright Lights" by Delilah Kennebreuw, and "Where Can She Run To" by The Jammers.

60s soul treasures – served up here in glorious mono – all as part of this wonderful tribute to the legendary Loma Records label! Loma was a small imprint that was part of Warner Brothers in the late 60s – and acted more like an LA-based indie label, with a quality level that rivals the best from New York, Detroit, and Chicago at the time – even Memphis, given that Loma had a surprisingly great ear for deep soul – in a way that few west coast imprints had during the 60s. The mix of modes here is wonderful – from upbeat groovers, to female soul killers, to some especially hard-burning male vocal numbers – in a set list that includes "The Dam Busted" by Carl Hall, "You Can't Outsmart A Woman" by Kell Osborne, "Too Late" by JJ Jackson, "Good Time" by The Mighty Hannibal, "Help Yourself" by Larry Lester, "Callin" by Lonnie Youngblood, "Your Search is Over" by Walter Foster, "Rainin In My Heart" by The Olympics, "There's Something On Your Mind (part 1)" by Baby Lloyd, and "Try" by Lorraine Ellison.

VariousLoma – A Soul Music Love Affair Vol 3 – Sad Sad Feeling 1964 to 1968 (180 gram pressing – with insert) ... LP
Loma/Future Days, Mid 60s. New Copy ... $13.99 22.99
Major labels didn't always get soul music as well as the indies back in the 60s – but there's one exception to that myth, the mighty Loma Records label from Warner Brothers! The company had a near-perfect run during its few years in business – killer soul singles that are every bit as prized by collectors as some of the more obscure records on tiny labels from the time – and which are handled with a quality level that's never too commercial, never as slick as you'd expect from a bigger company that was also handling easy listening and pop during the same period. Instead, the Loma legacy is a mighty deep run of greatness – as you'll hear on this stunning third volume in the series – with titles that include "The Shadow Of Your Love" by Bobby Freeman, "I Paid For The Party" by The Enchanters, "Can't Win" by The Invicibles, "Better Think Of What You're Losing" by Tommy Starr, "If This Ain't Love" by The Realistics, "Don't Come A Knockin" by Mary Lee Whitney, "Sad Sad Feeling (part 1)" by The Autographs, and "I Wanna Love You So Bad" by Bobby Reed.

✨✧ DoorsLondon Fog 1966 (10 inch LP – with CD) ... LP
Elektra, 1966. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The London fog has cleared – and the Warner/Elektra vaults have given us The Doors first-ever live recordings – from a time when the group was known as The Band From Venice! The package is totally cool – like finding a tape box in the back of some studio storage locker – with a 10" LP inside, plus a CD of the music – as well as 8 x 10 prints of photos from the show, a handwritten set list, and new essays from people who were at the performance! The show was recorded in the Sunset Strip, during the height of that scene – and titles include "Rock Me", "Baby Please Don't Go", "Strange Days", "Lucille", "Don't Fight It", "You Make Me Real", and "I'm Your Hoochie Coochie Man". LP, Vinyl record album
(Numbered limited edition!)
