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!

MetersMessage From The Meters – Complete Josie, Reprise, & Warner Singles 1968 to 1977 (3LP black vinyl pressing) ... LP
Real Gone, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 3LP Gatefold (reissue)... $50.99 54.99
Heavy soul by one of the funkiest groups of all time – New Orleans mighty Meters, a group who forever set a new standard with the classic singles featured in this package! The Meters are an instrumental group at their core – with a moody blend of heady basslines, bubbling organ, and scratchy guitar – made famous by their early singles on the Josie label, then taken to new heights as they moved to Warner/Reprise in the 70s, and came up with some even more complicated grooves! And while the group's albums are all great, it's definitely their singles that put the money where their funk is – creating these cool, compact, mostly-instrumental modes that pack a hell of a lot of punch in just a short space. The collection features 40 of these massive numbers – titles that include "Joog", "Sassy Lady", "No More Okey", "Trick Bag", "Mister Moon", "Find Yourself", "Chug Chug Chug (parts 1 & 2)", "The Flower", "Smiling", "Do The Dirt", "Africa", "People Say", "Running Fast (long version)", "Disco Is The Thing Today", "Hey Pocky A Way", "Stretch Your Rubber Band", "This Is My Last Affair", "Chicken Strut", "Sophisticated Cissy", "Cissy Strut", "Here Comes The Meter Man", "Ease Back", "Ann", "Dry Spell", "Little Old Money Maker", "Hey Last Minute", and "The World Is A Little Bit Under The Weather Doodle Oop".

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".

AssociationInsight Out (colored vinyl pressing – mono) ... LP
Warner/Rhino, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 21.98
Fantastic dreamy pop! Despite the fact that this one yielded the super-huge hits "Windy" and "Never My Love", the album's also filled with great 60s pop tunes that you've probably never heard before – all as fantastically well-crafted and delicately strung-out as the big hits. The Association were truly one of the greatest 60s pop harmony groups to come out of the LA scene – and even a big hit album like this is the kind of gem that you'd spend years digging through rare vinyl to hope to find! Other titles include "Happiness Is", "On A Quiet Night", "We Love Us", "Reputation", and "Requiem For The Masses". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition 50th Anniversary pressing – mono version on red colored vinyl – in a heavy paste-on cover like the original pressing.)

Jane BirkinBirkin Gainsbourg – Le Symphonique ... LP
Warner, 2017. New Copy 2LP ... $23.99 25.98
A wonderful setting for the great Jane Birkin – working here with a full symphony orchestra, in very fresh interpretations of the classic songs of her onetime partner, Serge Gainsbourg! The orchestrations are wonderful – never sleepy, and always nicely light – so that Jane's voice is very upfront in the mix, but has a vibe that's quite different than most of her other later work – almost more fragile, in a way – and certainly with more world experience in her tone than when she sang some of these songs in her youth. The project is a surprising treat, and has us loving Birkin all over again – as well as being really amazed that some of Serge's songs could sound so different. Titles include "Baby Alone In Babylon", "Jane B", "L'Anamour", "La Javanaise", "Amour Des Feintes", "Valse De Melody", "Ces Petits Riens", "La Chanson De Prevert", and "Requiem Pour Un Con".

Black SabbathBlack Sabbath (180 gram 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

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

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 CooperLove It To Death (swirl colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Straight/Warner, 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99 21.98
The third album from Alice Cooper and perhaps the first great one – starting the 70s sleaze show win streak with the massive "I'm Eighteen" and an LP full of great, gritty and grimy rock and roll. 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! Other tracks include "Caught In A Dream", "Hallowed Be My Name", "Black Juju", "Is It My Body", "Second Coming", "Ballad Of Dwight Fry" and "Sun Arise". LP, Vinyl record album

Alice CooperSpecial Forces (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Warner, 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 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

DioLast In Line (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Warner/Rhino, 1984. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
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)".

✨✧ 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/Be With (UK), 1983. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99 29.99
Sweet AOR grooves, served up here in French – which makes for a nice change from some of the more familiar American work of the time! Yet even past the language, the album's got a very special highlight in the keyboard work of Marc Moulin – still very funky here, as in his initial 70s music with Placebo – but tuned more towards the sorts of styles you'd expect from the album's early 80s date – as are the rhythms, which are often delivered with some tight Linn drum styles that fit in very nicely with the album's electro groove! Had the lyrics been in English, we're guessing the whole thing would have been more of an international hit – but it's also that quality that makes the record even more charming overall. Titles include "Toi C'Est Different", "Ou Es Tu", "Maintenant", "Trop Triste", "Quand Je Serai Grand", "Dans L'Eau De Nice", and "Du Tu Au Tout". 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

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".

The unreleased "Moonbeam Levels" may well be the prize here for longtime Prince completitsts – but the set also includes a number of never-seen photos from Herb Ritz, and marks the full length debut of "Let's Go Crazy (single edit)", "Take Me With U (single edit)", "Let's Work (single edit)", "Alphabet Street (single edit)", "Girls & Boys (single edit)", "Glam Slam (single edit)", and "Little Red Corvette (single edit)".

A sprawling classic from Prince – full of songs perfecting the pop, funk & soul kaleidoscope of his best 80s jams, and adding a remarkable, previously unexplored depth and breadth of styles! 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".

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.

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

Morning DewMorning Dew ... LP
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)".
