Nino Nardini/Eddie Warner/Roger RogerStudio Ganaro – Space Oddities 1972 to 1982 (with download) ... LP
Born Bad (France), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... About June 10, 2016
Mad electronic sounds from a trio of older French studio talents – Nino Nardini, Eddie Warner, and Roger Roger – all sound library giants from a previous generation, working here in some sweet electric modes for the 70s! If there's one thing that seemed to mark the best sound library artists working in the European scene, it was a really forward-thinking style of work – an ambitious drive to always find new sounds, and new ways of expressing themselves – which led cats like Nardini, Warner, and Roger to move beyond previous jazz or string-based modes, and step into the world of the Moog, Arp, and other electronic sources of the 70s! This sweet collection brings together some of their best experiments from Studio Ganaro – tunes that are often every bit as charming and melodic as their 60s material, but also occasionally funky, too – with a groove that's totally great, and use of the new keyboard sounds at a level that's very tuneful, and way more than just knob-twiddling. Titles include "Pop Electronique No 1", "Devil's Anvil", "Tomorrow", "Minor Mind", "Pathetic Motion", "Expectation", "Frantique", "Poppy Chimes", "Beyond The Clouds", "Sound Industrial No 15", "Brutus Drums", "Tickling Shuffle", and "KO".

Black SabbathPast Lives (2LP 180 gram pressing) ... LP
Warner, Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $29.99 31.99
Black Sabbath live recordings from the height of their early glory years! The heart of it is heavy classics recorded at gigs in Manchester and London in 1973 – originally released as Live At Last, without the band's and their label's oversight, and with poor sound – remixed and remastered gloriously here to showcase the band at their menacing best! The second LP features recordings never released before 2002, equally powerful recordings from Paris in 1970 and Asbury Park, NJ in '75. Many of the most beloved Sabbath stormers are featured, faster and more ferocious than the studio versions in some cases. Includes "Tomorrow's Dream", "Iron Man", "Snow Blind", "Sweet Leaf", "NIB", "War Pigs", "Hand Of Doom", "Black Sabbath", "Fairies Wear Boots" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Warner, Late 60s. New Copy 2LP ... $38.99
A reissue on heavy 180 gram vinyl of the Captain's magnum opus. This record set the high water mark that all crazy, wacked out rock must be measured by. A classic. Tracks include "Dachau Blues", "Hair Pie", "Moonlight On Vermont", "Sweet Sweet Bulbs", "China Pig", "My Human Gets Me Blues", and "Dali's Car". LP, Vinyl record album

Dennis CoffeyBlack Belt Jones – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack ... LP
Warner, Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Finally – the long overdue release of one of the funkiest soundtracks ever! The music to Black Belt Jones has always been the stuff of legend – mostly only issued as a promo single back in the 70s, but funky enough that it's ranked among the best soundtracks of the decade! The score was composed and performed by Dennis Coffey and Luchi De Jesus – the former a funk star in his own right, the latter the composer of the ultra-hip Friday Foster soundtrack – and together, the pair have crafted some killer grooves that mix guitars, congas, and blasting orchestrations that could plow Enter The Dragon into the dust! Plus, the soundtrack nicely mixes together bits of dialogue and sound effects from the film – making things sound a lot like some of those cool Japanese Bruce Lee soundtracks that were floating around from years back. Titles include "Love Theme", "At The Beach", "Main Theme", "Opening Theme", "Drama", "Mafia Theme", and "Sexy". LP, Vinyl record album

Deep PurpleDeep Purple In Rock (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Warner, 1970. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99 21.98
Deep Purple may be asking a lot to knock the faces of the presidents off Mount Rushmore, and put up their own images instead – but given the force of this classic early 70s set, they may well have the musical power on their own to carve up a whole mountainside! The album's a ripper right from the start – a tight barrage of fierce guitars and heavy drums from the legendary lineup that included Roger Glover, Ritchie Blackmore, Ian Gillian, Jon Lord, and Ian Paice – a group so tight, so tremendous, the only way to proper describe them is to encourage you to drop the needle on a classic gem like this! A non-stop barrage from start to finish – with tracks that include "Speed King", "Bloodsucker", "Child In Time", Into The Fire", "Flight Of The Rat", and "Living Wreck". LP, Vinyl record album

Gang Of FourSolid Gold (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Warner, 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 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".

Gang Of FourSongs Of The Free (180 gram splattered colored vinyl) (2015 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Warner, 1982. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99
Quite possibly our favorite Gang Of Four album – and the one in which their funk approach really seems to work! The album's got a camp appeal that can't be denied – known famously for it's big post-disco hit "I Love A Man In Uniform" – but overall the whole thing actually seems pretty well thought out – taking the heady politics of earlier records, and putting them into catchy guitar-driven dancefloor tracks that clearly get the message out to a whole new audience of converts! Titles include "Call Me Up", "I Love A Man In Uniform", "Life It's A Shame", "I Will Be A Good Boy", "The History Of The World", "Muscle For Brains", "Of The Instant", and the sublime William Blake-inspired groover "We Live As We Dream, Alone".

Billy GreenStone ... LP
Warner/Finders Keepers (UK), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
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)... $26.99 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

Jesus & Mary ChainBarbed Wire Kisses – B-Sides & More (180 gram blood red colored vinyl) (2015 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Warner, Mid/Late 80s. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $34.99
Prime period B-Sides, live recordings and other rarities from The Jesus & Mary Chain – great stuff from the first 5 or 6 years of their career – up there creatively with their best work ever! As dark-edged as the band is, they've often worn their influences on their sleeves over the years, be it the proto rock rawness of Bo Diddley, the catchy vocal style of early Beach Boys (though layered in razor wire) or the moody freneticism of Can – and they're all the more open with them on this collection,while still sounding like quintessential JMC. Classic! Includes "Kill Surf City", "Surfin' USA", "Upside Down", "Swing (Darklands Outtake)", "Just Out Of Reach", "Head", "Cracked", "Here It Comes Again", "Bo Diddley Is Jesus", "Rider", "Don't Ever Change", "Sidewalking", "Who Do You Love" and more.

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

ReplacementsTwin Tone Years (4LP box set) ... LP
Twin Tone/Warner, Early/Mid 80s. New Copy 4LP ... $69.99 74.98
The first 4 records by The Replacements – the underrated Sorry Ma, Forgot The Take Out The Trash and Stink, plus the classics Hootenanny and Let It Be – recorded for Twin Tone in the first half of the 80s, and compiled here in a handsome 4LP box set! Early in their run, on the first 2 LPs in this set, they're almost hiding their love for sloppy, passionate rock & roll in more of a caterwauling post punk mode, they really start to branch out a bit on Hootenanny, then reach an inarguable peak on Let It Be. It's great to have these records in a box set, as it chronicles one of most fascinating maturation processes of any rock band in the 1980s – on top of each record being total blast on its own!

Warner (UK), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99
Fantastic stuff! In case you don't know it, this is one of Lalo Schifrin's most incredible soundtracks, and it's a stunning mix of jazz, bossa, and groovy grooves. There's lots of cool bubbling electric bass, lilting keyboards, and moody breezy rhythms. Nearly every cut's a winner, and if you like his stuff, we can bet that this will become one of your favorites. The record's darn tough to find, and this reissue is a real treat to have around! Cuts include "Bullitt", "Room 26", "On the Way To San Mateo", and "Shifting Gears". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Flamin GrooviesShake Some Action (180 gram red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Warner/4 Men With Beards, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
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".

ReplacementsSire Years (4LP box set) ... LP
Sire/Warner, Mid 80s-Early 90s. New Copy 4 LPs ... Just Sold Out!
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

Warner, 1970. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The third album by Black Sabbath – the album that put the heavy in metal – one of the most influential rock albums of all time and a record that finds Sabbath at absolute peak perfection! This is the one that set the Sabbath style in stone, honing in the the heavy riffs, thundering drums and eerie mood perfectly. Includes the ultra classics "Sweet Leaf" and "Children Of The Grave", plus "After Forever", "Lord Of This World", "Solitude", "Into The Void" and the instrumentals "Embryo" and "Orchid". Beautiful reissue features lots of bonus tracks – including "Weevil Woman 71", "Sweet Leaf (outtake with new lyrics)", "Children Of The Grave (outtake with alt lyrics)", "Orchid (outtake with count-in)", "Solitude (outtake with alt guitar tuning)", and "Into The Void Spanish Sid (alt version)".

Nems/Warner, 1971. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ MetersFire On The Bayou (fire colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Warner, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

Warner/Future Days, 1973. New Copy 2 LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The title's a great one – as the set's kind of a companion to Terry Reid's legendary River album – pulled together from tapes recorded around the same time as that session – and featuring six completely new tunes, and five very different alternates of songs on the previous record! The material is wonderful – that genre-bending style that made Reid one of the real underground heroes of his time – a mode steeped in the British love of blues in the 60s, but set loose on a whole range of rootsier styles and more personal modes here – and even given a very special Brazilian influence on one unusual track done in collaboration with Gilberto Gil! Willie Bobo plays percussion on a few tracks, too – and these titles have never been issued at all – just rumored about for years, and finally discovered in the Warner Brothers vault. Titles include "Country Brazilian Funk", "Let's Go Down", "Avenue", "Things To Try", "Sabyla", "Anyway", "Celtic Melody", "Late Nite Idea", "Listen With Eyes", and "River". LP, Vinyl record album

Electric PrunesI Had Too Much To Dream (Last Night) ... LP
Reprise, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
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

Herbie HancockHerbie Hancock Septet – Live At The Boston Jazz Workshop (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Hi Hat, 1973. New Copy 2LP ... $31.99
Sweet 70s electric work from the mighty Herbie Hancock – a live performance that's got some of the best spiritual elements of his late Warner Brothers years, mixed with some of the Headhunters modes to come! The album only includes two very long tracks – "Hornets" and "You'll Know When You Get There" – stretched-out, opened up, and with these magical moments from Eddie Henderson on trumpet, Benny Maupin on reeds, Julian Priester on trombone, and Buster Williams on bass. Billy Hart is on drums and "Scorch" plays congas – but both players sit back some times, and just let the magic happen from the other instrumentalists. And in addition to lots of keyboards from Hancock, Pat Gleeson adds in a bit more electronics to the mix as well. 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)... $24.99
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 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"!

Rhino, Late 60s. New Copy 2LP ... $31.99
Wonderfully tripped-out pop from the late 60s – served up by a few famous names and an even better band of lesser-knowns – all of whom recorded for Warner Brothers and related labels at the time! The package does a great job of showing the "pop" side of psychedelia – a sound that's a lot harder than the Sunshine Pop end of the spectrum, but which also shares a similar love of groovy themes, sweet vocals, and cool production techniques! A few of the tunes get a bit way out, but most of the numbers manage to pack a whole trip's punch within a short little 3 or 4 minute song – leaving us to marvel even more at the deft economy in the studio, and the wonderful quality this kind of music had before it succumbed to too many of its own excesses. Titles include "Her Name Is A Melody" by Adrian Pride, "It's Love" by The Misty Wizards, "Break Away" by Next Exit, "Hallucinations" by Baker Knight & The Knightmares, "Your Love Belongs To Everyone" by The Coronados, "That's The Way It's Gonna Be" by Lee Mallory, "Wildflowers" by The Holy Mackerel, "Smell Of Incense" by West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band, "My Mind Goes High" by MC2, "Straight Aero" by Jeff Thomas, and "The White Pony" by Ellen Margulies.

Loma/Future Days, Mid 60s. New Copy ... $18.99 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.

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.

Alice ClarkComplete Studio Recordings (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Mainstream/BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... About June 24, 2016
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, the previously unreleased "Before Her Time" and "You Hit Me (Right Where It Hurts Me)" instrumental, and more! 16 tracks in all.

✨✧ MetersCabbage Alley (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Reprise, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really cool cooker from The Meters – recorded during their post-Josie run for Warner Brothers, but with this tight vibe that still holds all their funky New Orleans roots intact! 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"! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Allen ToussaintLive In Philadelphia 1975 (180 gram pressing) (2016 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Reprise, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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. Titles include "Last Train", "Freedom For The Stallion", "Backyard Blues", "What Is Success", "Shoo Ra", "Touch Of Love", "High Life", and "Southern Nights". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited pressing!)
