✨✧ VariousInsane Times – 21 British Psychedelic Artyfacts From Parlophone & Associated Labels (2017 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Warner/Parlophone (Italy), Late 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Grooviness galore – and a wonderful selection of obscure psychedelic numbers from the deep deep vaults of EMI Records! The cuts here are mostly of British late 60s origin, and they feature a really fuzzed-up approach to pop – complete with odd production techniques, off-kilter arrangements, and a pretty heady brew of guitar, bass, drums, and tripped-out vocals – all served up with top-shelf sound, as proof that even on the bigger labels of the 60s, lots of younger artists were still taking plenty of chances! The package has complete track-by-track notes in a full color book with photos, labels, and album sleeve images too – and the set features tracks that include "Dandelion Seeds" by July, "Real Life Permanent Dream" by Tomorrow, "Model Village" by Penny Peeps, "Towards The Skies" by The Gods, "Strange Walking Man" by Mandrake Paddle Steamer, "William Chalker's Time Machine" by The Lemon Tree, "Barricades" by The Koobas, "Please Leave My Mind" by Herbal Mixture, "World Of You" by The Aerovons, and "Monday Morning" by Tales Of Justine.

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".

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".

Bootsy's Rubber BandStretchin' Out In Bootsy's Rubber Band (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Warner/Rhino, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99
Bootsy Collins' first solo album as a leader – and a masterpiece of slow bassy funk that set the tone for countless other groups to come! Bootsy steps into the spotlight with a tremendous amount of confidence and personality on the record – emerging as the one real star that could shine brightly on its own in the P-Funk galaxy – oozing personality, sexuality, and super-funky grooves throughout! George Clinton's helping Bootsy out on production a bit, and the rest of the P-Funk regulars are in the group as well – but the album's clearly Bootsy's own, and takes mainstream funk into a whole new sound – one that would really set a high bar for much of the west coast scene in years to come! Includes the massive "I'd Rather Be With You" – plus "Physical Love", "Love Vibes", and "Psychoticbumpschool". LP, Vinyl record album

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

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".

Billy GreenStone ... LP
Warner/Finders Keepers (UK), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
Imagine a record where didgeridoo mixes with weird moogy electronics – and you'll imagine only a tiny slice of this totally great album! The set's a tripped out soundtrack to the mid 70s Australian "Ozploitation" biker flick Stone by Billy Green – a mindblowing record, with sounds that range from spare, spooky Moog accents to rippingly funky rock, through sleezy jazzy sounds, and even a cosmic string band vibe in spots! Green is on the guitars – and the individual numbers are generally in done with stripped down combos, but arrangements bring in a full range of instruments that include the aforementioned didgeridoo and moog, plus heavy drums, lush strings, moody harp, and even some cool wordless vocals. Andy Votel did a hell of a job with the notes – really illuminating both the film and the music that accompanied it – and titles include "Eco Blue/Toadstrip", "Race", "Head Off", "Pigs", "Cosmic Funeral", "Septic", and "The Death Of Dr Death". Also includes unreleased material that was not on the original album! LP, Vinyl record album

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

LaBelleMoon Shadow ... LP
Warner, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
One of the greatest albums ever by Labelle – known especially for the massive funky title cut, which has been an in-demand groover for years! "Moonshadow" begins with a nice funky piano intro, then rolls into a 10 minute groove that's really tasty – filled with lots of jazzy riffing, tasty conga, and a weird monologue by Patti that runs through different parts of the body and why you should appreciate them! The cut was lost on American audiences of the 70s, but became a huge one in the European jazz dance scene of the late 80s, probably because most of them couldn't understand how silly Patti's vocals were! The cut's nice and funky, though – and there's some other nice ones on the record, too, including "Sunday News", "Touch Me All Over", and "Peace With Yourself". Much more interesting than most of their stuff, with a hip mixture of jazz, soul, and hard grooving! LP, Vinyl record album

MetersFire On The Bayou (fire colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
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".

O TercoO Terco (1972) ... LP
Warner/Sagara (Portugal), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99
The second album from O Terco – the guitar-heavy power trio who were one of the hardest things going in Brazil during the early 70s! The album's got a style that's somewhat progressive, but which also still holds onto plenty of late 60s psychedelic elements – qualities both sweet and dark, often compressed into the arrangements with an approach that's a bit like some of the more underground South American rock of the time. Side one of the album features 5 shorter tracks – "Deus", "Voce Al", "Estrada Vazia", "Lagoa Das Lontras", and "Rock Do Elvis" – and the second side features the 19 minute suite"Amanheger Total" – a soaring, building number with lots of changes throughout!

Gram ParsonsGP (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Warner, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
The seminal Gram Parsons solo debut, and arguably his most consistant post-Burritos album. GP is pretty much the record that put the country in country rock – with a sharp steel guitar cry throughout, an unpretentious proud/poor delivery, and those sweet harmonies with Emmylou Harris. The album is split pretty evenly between tunes penned by Parsons, and other writers who aren't as deeply celebrated, like the great Tompall Glaser. Includes "Still Feeling Blue", "We'll Sweep Out The Ashes In The Morning", "Streets Of Baltimore", "She", "That's All It Took", "Cry One More Time", and more. LP, Vinyl record album

PrinceFor You ... LP
Warner, 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 18.98
Compelling early work from Prince – with a host of influences present on the surface, showing more clearly from whence he developed his unique sound. There's a bit of the record that reminds us of Shuggie Otis mid 70s output, and other tracks show that Prince had been paying attention to the keyboard-heavy sounds in the soul industry – as solos on a few of these numbers almost show a jazz funk impulse. The best cuts are the mellow ones – and titles include "For You", "Soft & Wet", "Crazy You", "Baby", "So Blue", and "I'm Yours". A seed of what was to come, but still amazing! LP, Vinyl record album

REMGreen (180 gram pressing with download) ... LP
Warner, 1988. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
REM's major label debut – the culmination of years spent inching closer and closer to the mainstream – and one of the best examples of the past several decades of a band rooted in the indie rock underground reinventing themselves as superstars, without compromising their uniqueness or overall greatness! The previous couple of albums showed that REM was capable of producing songs with sing-a-long potential – and more powerful rock songs – along with their uniquely moody, often acoustic-based songcraft. This is where they took the biggest step yet in that direction. Michael Stipe really stepped out his shell like never before around this time, and his evolution from indie rock poet to extroverted showman is amazing. Titles include "Pop Song 89", "Get Up", "You Are Everything", "Stand", "World Leader Pretend", "The Wrong Child", "Orange Crush", "Turn You Inside Out", "Air Shirt" and "I Remember California".

ReplacementsSire Years (4LP box set) ... LP
Sire/Warner, Mid 80s-Early 90s. New Copy 4 LPs ... $69.99 74.98
The final 4 album from The Replacements – Tim, Pleased To Meet Me, Don't Tell A Soul and All Shook Down – in a 4LP box set! Tim was their first for Sire, and a crossover classic for the champions of the Minneapolis scene – with a couple of their best ever tunes – "Left Of The Dial" and "Hold My Life" – but the whole record is a consistent gem. Pleased To Meet Me is another late period, Sire-era win, this one recorded at Ardent with Jim Dickinson, but retaining the shambling genius you'd expect from the 'Mats. Don't Tell A Soul and All Shook Down are hit-and-miss compared to earlier glories, but each have their charms – especially All Shook Down, which is underrated to this day! LP, Vinyl record album

VariousAOR Breaks – Original Classics Sampled By Hip Hop's Finest ... LP
Warner (Australia), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $28.99
Back in the day, it seemed like the only real source for hip hop was old funk and soul records – yet over the years, as production advanced, DJs found plenty of great grooves back in the 70s mainstream – by pillaging great records like this from the glory days of AOR! The set may well be one of the most unique sample collections we've ever heard – as it features a shameless collection of AM radio goodies from the 70s – but which have all grown to live anew in the hands of artists like Biz Markie, Warren G, Nas, Kanye West, Wiz Khalifa, De La Soul, and others! Some of these are tracks we always liked back in the day – numbers that really stood out from others in the mainstream mix – but they seem to get even more of a sparkle in a set like this, especially given the familiarity of the tunes from their re-use in hip hop tracks. Titles include "Lowdown" by Boz Scaggs, "Sailing" by Christopher Cross, "I Keep Forgettin" by Michael McDonald, "Give Me The Night" by George Benson, "Woman To Woman" by Joe Cocker, "Fly Like An Eagle" by Steve Miller, "Africa" by Toto, "I Can't Go For That" by Hall & Oates, "Summer Breeze" by Seals & Crofts, "This Is It" by Kenny Loggins, "Mr Blue" by Michael Franks, and "Tightrope" by Electric Light Orchestra.

VariousBack On The Street Again – Australian Funk, Soul, & Psych (Mostly) From The Festival Vaults ... LP
Festival/Warner (Australia), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $29.99
A fantastic collection of rare funk and soul from the Australian scene of the 70s – and a collection that goes way past some of the more familiar ground covered by other compilations! There have been a few key looks at the Aussie scene over the years – all of them really revelatory assemblages of funky cuts that never got much circulation outside of the island nation – and which point to a surprisingly huge legacy of great sounds in the 60s and 70s – a time when Australia was riding high on new national growth and cultural pride! This set digs even deeper than those – and dips into a variety of genres, even some great funky rock – and pulls together cuts from the Festival label archive, plus a few other sources – really mixing in some gems we never would have heard otherwise, alongside a few bigger names from the scene. Titles include "Funky Max" by Johnny Rocco Band, "City Sounds" by Daly Wilson Big Band, "Voodoo Lady" by Dalvanius & The Fascinations, "Feel Awright" by The Id, "Superstition" by Ray White Revival, "Africa" by Festival Studio 24 Orchestra, "Weird & Wonderful" by Brute Force & His Drum Band, "The Rat Suite" by Blackfeather, "Sea That Swells" by Tamam Shud, "Odyssey" by Khavas Jute, "The Wrong Time" and "Indian Rope Man" by McPhee, "Painted Ego" by Count Copernicus & The Cosmic Fire, "Vehicle" by Al Style, "Be There In The Morning" by Renee Geyer, "Oz Bump" by Hot Source, "Do The Uptight" by Ross D Wyllie, "Back On The Street Again" by Billy Thorpe, and "A Day In The Life" and "Hair" by John Sangster.

Warner (Italy), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $22.99
Fantastic French funk and psych – a very cool collection that goes way past the obvious hits of the 60s – to bring together some of the trippier tracks of the time! Despite the date range in the title, there's also some cuts here from the early 70s – the kind of wild numbers from a time when France was really breaking from some of the more familiar paths followed by American and British psych acts – as you'll hear on the set. There's loads here we'd never heard before – and titles include "Bungalow" by Triangle, "Mon Chameau" by Les Masters, "La Route" by Guy Skornik, "Wendy" by Rado Testen, "Elle Etait Belle" by Komintern, "La Petite Difference" by Jacques Filh, "L'Air Que Je Chante" by Papillon, "Les Aiguelles Du Temps" by Philippe Farre, "Rituel De Guerre" by Igor Wakhevitch, and "La Dame Deu" by Michel Zacha.

A smooth set of grooves from the 70s – just the kind of cool compressed pop that used to fill the 70s AM radio airwaves when we were kids – and which sounds even better in a hip compilation like this! The package doesn't go for easy hits – and instead digs deep into the treasure trove of 70s album-oriented rock – to find cuts that really glow anew in each others' company, filled with surprises that we never would have expected! Some folks have taken to calling these sounds "yacht rock" – but to us, the sound is pure 70s at its best – a sublime batch of tracks that includes "Georgy Porgy" by Toto, "Wait A Little While" by Kenny Loggins, "Here To Stay" by Boz Scaggs, "Fazon" by Sopwith Camel, "Whatcha Gonna Do For Me" by Average White Band, "Tranquilo" by Carly Simon, "Nightmoves" by Michael Franks, "Steal Away" by Robbie Dupree, "Tin Man" by America, "She's Gone" by Hall & Oates, "Midnight Prowl" by JD Souther, and "Ride Like The Wind" by Christopher Cross.

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!

George BensonErotic Moods ... LP
Paul Winley, Early 70s/1978. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Wild and mysterious stuff! This album is sort of a repackaged version of the legendary Harlem Underground album – a great lost funk album from the mid-70s that listed George Benson as a player in the group, but one that Benson claims that he never played on! The time of this release coincided with Benson's big hit years in the 70s – so the package is a bit of a cash-in project – but the grooves here are a lot harder-hitting than anything George recorded for Warner or Columbia – really gritty funk that's totally great throughout! Other players include Dave Baby Cortez on organ, Reuben Wilson on keyboards, and Willis Jackson on tenor – and Ann Winley sings on one track, the great "Fed Up", which has a really bad-rapping feel! Other titles include the classic break track "Smokin' Cheeba Cheeba" – plus a few smokin' organ/guitar wailers, like "Loose Joints" and "Overture Erotic", both of which are nice enough to warrant this separate release! Other tracks include "Erotic Moods" and "Sweet Taste Of Love". 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".

Lion, 1970. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $28.99
Insanely amazing work from Morning Dew – a group who only ever issued one album during their career, but who've gone onto become the stuff of hard rock legends – based on the strength of that set! The seminal record At Last should be in every collection of psych – and the sounds here were all recorded right after that classic, but never issued at the time – due to lots of trouble with the group's somewhat-shady record label! Yet the music here demands to be heard – work that may well even be better than the group's debut – maybe setting a new standard for American prog that would have made Morning Dew huge, had Atlantic or Warner had them in the stable – as longer jams mix with more intimate numbers – in a space here that's even more double-edged, given that the package features most of the unreleased album in a finished mix, plus a full other batch of acoustic and demo numbers. Finally – a second album from these overlooked giants – with tracks that include "My Kind Of Music", "1849", "Any Day Now", "Our Last Song", "Satan's Got A Hold On Thee", "Lion/Get Away From It All", "The Road Back (solo acoustic)", "Something You Say (alt)", "Country Boy Blue (band rehearsal)", "Crusader's Smile (solo acoustic)", and "Cherry Street (backing track)".

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. Titles include "Takin A Ride", "Carless", "Hangin Downtown", "Johnny's Gonna Die", "More Cigarettes", "Shiftless When Idle", "Shutup", "Raised In The City", and "Somethin To Du".
