MetersMessage From The Meters – Complete Josie, Reprise, & Warner Singles 1968 to 1977 (3LP black vinyl pressing) ... LP
Real Gone, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy (reissue)... On October 27, 2017
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".

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.)

Beau BrummelsTriangle (colored vinyl pressing – mono) ... LP
Warner/Rhino, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 21.98
A tremendous album from The Beau Brummels – one of the lesser-remembered groups from the late 60s Warner hipster heyday! At some level, the group's a folk-rock outfit – with the left-of-center feel of some of Fred Neil's best work for Capitol, and a similar blend of east coast honesty and west coast mind expansion. The format here is remarkably simple, but handled with some nice touches by producer Lenny Waronker, who really brings a lot more out of the band than on their earlier indie recordings. Titles include "Are You Happy", "The Wolf Of Velvet Fortune", "The Keeper Of Time", "Only Dreaming Now", "Magic Hollow", "Painter Of Women", and "Triangle". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition 50th Anniversary pressing on blue colored vinyl – mono – with a very cool paste-on cover just like the original!)

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".

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

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.

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

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

Flaming LipsYoshimi Battles The Pink Robots (picture disc) ... LP
Warner, 2002. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
The definitive classic of the post-millennium Flaming Lips! Weird and bubbly and soul-searchingly introspective at the the same time, metaphorically at least – there's only so much navel gazing that can happen on an album with a young girl vs giant robots motif – this one to another step in their newfound love of more layered sounds and electronics that came out so strong on the critically and fan-beloved, but at the time commercially overlooked The Soft Bulletin, with songs that manage to some of their oddest and catchiest at the same time. Includes "Fight Test", "One More Robot/Sympathy 3000-21", "Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots" (Pts 1 & 2), "Egotripping At The Gates Of Hell", "Are You A Hypnotist??", "Do You Realize??", "All We Have Is Now" and more.

Grateful DeadSmiling On A Cloudy Day (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Warner/Rhino, Late 60s. New Copy ... $19.99 21.98
A great dip into the earliest, headiest years of the Grateful Dead – served up here in a set that brings together cuts from their first three albums, plus a single as well! The mix of modes here is still mindblowing after all these many years – and even after all the later cliches of the group, too – as there's a time-spanning, genre-stepping quality from the young lineup of Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Mickey Hart, and others – moving through tracks that include the long "That's It For The Other One" suite, plus "The Golden Road To Unlimited Devotion", "Cream Puff War", "Morning Dew", "Born Cross-Eyed", "Cosmic Charlie", "China Cat Sunflower", and "St Stephen" – plus the original 45 rpm single mix of "Dark Star" – quite different than all the long-jamming takes from later years.

Billy GreenStone ... LP
Warner/Finders Keepers (UK), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
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

Ahh, the glory days of the Native Tongues. Remember a time when dropping knowledge and keeping rumps bumpin' weren't mutually exclusive? This sophomore LP from the Jay Beez is a smorgasbord of funky breaks, jazzy samples and lyrical niceness from the golden era of hip hop. 16 tracks, including interludes and such, with "Doin Our Own Dang", "J Beez Comin Through", "What U Waitin' 4", "Beyond This World", "Acknowledge Your Own History", "Sunshine", "Beeds On A String", "Done By The Forces Of Nature", "Kool Accordin 2 A Jungle Brother" and "Tribe Vibes".

LaBelleMoon Shadow ... LP
Warner, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $7.99
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

Alec MansionAlec Mansion (180 gram pressing) ... LP
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

Van MorrisonAstral Weeks (180 gram pressing – clear vinyl) ... LP
Warner/Rhino, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
Van's debut album for Warner Brothers and a pretty radical departure from anything he'd done before – breaking all kinds of new ground for his own most creative work and helping pave the way for all kinds of hauntingly poetic rock, folk rock, and singer-songwriter records to come! It doesn't take hearing more than a few seconds of the opening title track, with Morrison's rawly passionate voice and spiritually yearning lyrics, to know this is a pretty remarkable creative leap from pop leaning sound of "Brown Eyed Girl" and other preceding efforts! It's almost folk jazz, arrangements wise, with flute and largely acoustic instrumentation, a really spontaneous feel to the sessions, and always hypnotic, seemingly stream of consciousness vocals by Van. As loose and spacious as the sound is, the emotional resonance is pretty heavy, and it's sequenced as a cycle: part one (In The Beginning) on side 1 and part two (Afterwards) on side 2. A stunner! Titles include "Astral Weeks", "Beside You", "Cyprus Avenue", "Sweet Thing", "Slim Slow Slider", and "Madame George". 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

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

PrincePrince ... LP
Warner, 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 18.98
An overlooked record in the grand scheme – which is unforgivable in our book! This self-titled album Prince's second album, and already his vision is becoming a little more focused, and you can really hear the seeds of his later efforts – a really remarkable, unique, and fascinating record that stands up with some of his best work, and bucks all late 70s trends and cliches in pop, soul and funk! In some ways this is one of our favorite Prince records, as it has a kind of intimacy that was lacking on later sets – or maybe because the hit "I Wanna Be Your Lover" has such a mad groove! "Why You Wanna Treat Me So Bad" has the sly sound that would run throughout the rest of Prince's better work for years to come – and Chaka Khan would later cover "I Feel for You", and hit large with it in the 80s. Also includes "Sexy Dancer", "With You" and "When We're Dancing Close & Slow". LP, Vinyl record album

One of the greatest crossover albums of the 80s – and the record that catapulted Prince very firmly into the mainstream! There's a tightness here that surpasses even that of Prince's early classics for Warner Brothers – an unabashed love of a pop hook that makes for some incredibly catchy tunes that are still delivered with a nice funky undercurrent. The whole Prince family is at the top of their game at this point – and titles include "Darling Nikki", "Let's Go Crazy", "I Would Die 4 U", "When Doves Cry", "Baby I'm A Star", and "Purple Rain".

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".

The production on the Thin Lizzy studio albums is always impeccable – and really works wonders with the guitars, and the vocals of Phil Lynott – but as you'll hear in concert, that magic is already firmly in place – and maybe even more remarkable caught like this, in the space of some very enthusiastic fans! Tracks include great new takes on killers from the albums that came before – and titles include "The Rocker", "Baby Drives Me Crazy", "Don't Believe A Word", "Cowboy Song", "The Boys Are Back In Town", "Dancing In The Moonlight", "Johnny The Fox Meets Jimmy The Weed", "Jailbreak", "Emerald", "Massacre", and a great fusion of "Rosalie" and "Cowgirl's Song".

RCA, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
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

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

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

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"!

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)".

Meic StevensOutlander ... LP
Warner/Blank, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... On October 13, 2017 (delayed)
Possibly the biggest album ever from Welsh singer Meic Stevens – but a set that's still pretty darn obscure, nonetheless! The album's all in English, and was recorded as a key outing for Warner – before Meic went back to his homeland, and went virtually underground. The style's quite unique, a raspy blend of folksy elements and some slight more sophisticated tones – echoes of Dylan and Leonard Cohen in some of the arrangements, but all abstracted nicely once Meic's unique vocals come into play. All tunes are Stevens originals, and are often quite personally poetic – and titles include "Dau Rhosyn Coch", "Ballad Of Old Joe Blind", "Ghost Town", "Midnight Comes", "Yorric", "Love Owed", and "Left Over Time".

An incredible set of Sunshine Pop gems – all pulled from the glory days of the Warner Brothers hipster years! The set does an amazing job of offering up obscure numbers by bigger names, and great work from obscure names – all pulled together with a real thought of the criss-crossing of songwriters, arrangers, and producers that made the scene so great! There's lots of wonderful post-folk, post-harmony pop on the collection – pulled together with incredible notes that really document the under-discovered genius of the period – a situation that's certainly due to be corrected by the 24 sparkling tunes in the set! Titles include "Candy Apple Cotton Candy" by Pat Shannon, "A Whole Lot Of Rainbows" by The Salt, "Love-In" by The Morning Glories, "Our Dream" by The Munx, "Take My Hand" by Lee Mallory, "No One Was There" by Gates Of Eden, "Someday Man" by The Monkees, "Tell Someone That You Love Them" by Dino Desi & Billy, "Summer Days Summer Nights" by Street Corner Society, "Discrepency" by Bonniwell Music Machine, "Scorpio Red" by Holy Mackerel, "Beverly Hills" by Uncle Sound, "Time To Love" by The Addrisi Brothers, "Silver & Sunshine" by The Looking Glass, "Happiness" by Anita Kerr Singers, and "For All That I Am" by The Tokens.

Rhino, 1967. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
A very cool collection of sounds that shaped the world during the Summer of Love in 1967 – music that's partly rock, partly pop, with bits of psych and soul in the mix as well!

Titles include "Bowling Green" by The Everly Brothers, "Groovin" by Young Rascals, "Pleasant Valley Sunday" by The Monkees, "Transparent Day" by West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band, "Sit Down I Think I Love You" by The Mojo Men, "C'Mon Marianne" by The Four Seasons, "Gettin Together" by Tommy James & The Shondells, "You Keep Me Hanging On" by Vanilla Fudge, "Hip Hug Her" by Booker T & The MGs, "Windows Of The World" by Dionne Warwick, "Carrie Anne" by The Hollies, "It's A Happening World" by The Tokens, and "Next Plane To London" by The Rose Garden.
