Edgar WinterTell Me In A Whisper – The Solo Albums 1970 to 1981 (Entrance/Jasmine Dreams/Edgar Winter Albu/Standing On Rock/bonus tracks) (4CD set) ... CD
Columbia/HNE (UK), 1970s. New Copy 4CD ... $25.99
Four full albums from legendary Texas Rocker Edgar Winter – all of his solo material recorded away from his White Trash group during the 70s, plus bonus tracks too! Winter starts this run with music that's a nice refinement of blues rock roots – sometimes a bit more personal than his group work, at a level that then blossoms into a stretch where Edgar's a surprisingly strong frontman – often a lot more compelling than his sometimes-silly costumes on the covers might imply! The box set comes with big notes that include lots of photos and rare images – and all albums are remastered, and the set comes with bonus material from singles, mono mixes, and other goodies. Titles include "Where Have You Gone", "Fire & Ice", "Re-Entrance", "A Different Game", "Jump Right Out", "Tobacco Road", "One Day Tomorrow", "Little Brother", "Shuffle Low", "Tell Me In A Whisper", "Outa Control", "Sky Train", "All Out", "It's Your Life To Live", "Forever In Love", "Dying To Love", "Above & Beyond", "Star Garbage", "Martians", "Standing On Rock", and "Love Is Everywhere".

Edgar Winter Group & White TrashI've Got News For You 1971 to 1977 (White Trash/Roadwork/They Only Come Out At Night/Shock Treatment/With Rick Derringer/Recycled) (6CD set) ... CD
Columbia/HNE (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 6CD ... $36.99
A huge collection of work from Edgar Winter's White Trash group – a groundbreaking funky blues rock group, and one that maybe pushed Edgar's music even more strongly than that of his brother Johnny! Winter draws on strong Texas roots here – blending blues and psych elements with a hard rock core – yet he still keeps things funky in a lot of the rhythms, and makes some great use of Rick Derringer as a front man too – which further brings a focus to the tunes! The rhythm section on these records is often totally kick-ass – at a level that has made the records surprisingly durable for fans of funk – and which has maybe gotten them more appreciation over the years than we might have expected. Box set features all six albums, plus rare mono and single mixes – with artwork for all the records, lots of rare images, and very detailed notes too. CD

Columbia, 1962. Used ... Out Of Stock
Paul Winter's classic sextet is recorded here in both Rio and New York – one of three different sessions that Winter cut for Columbia in the 60s – all records that explore his own love of the bossa at a time when it was coincidentally very good business to be doing so! Tracks are light and groovy, with some slightly modern touches – and although the vibe is definitely a Brazilian one, the sound actually seems to benefit most from the slightly modern styles of the Winter group – used here to bring a bit more of an edge into some of the numbers! Titles include "Con Alma", "Little Boat", "Only You & I", "Adeus, Passaro Preto", and "Foolish One". LP, Vinyl record album

Flashback (UK), 2017. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A huge issue of Flashback – one that has the magazine increasing in size, ready to take on the style of Ugly Things! The magazine is oversized, in full color, and over 200 pages – and is worth it alone for an ultra-cool feature on 50 British psych albums that were only issued abroad and not in England! There's also a huge cover feature on Group 1850 – plus articles on bassist Nicholas Greenwood, Vertigo Records' Ben, Sweet Slag, Blonde On Blonde, Fuchsia, Jeff Dexter, and the 1967 Love-In Festival! The issue also looks at the important Disc & Music Echo magazine – and has other features, music reviews, and a look at the lost 1969 album by John Phillips. Magazine

Strata East/Charly (UK), 1974/1998. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Finally! A nicely priced reissue of this beautiful jazzy classic –perhaps Gil Scott-Heron's most perfectly realized album ever. Contains (of course) "The Bottle", which went on to be a huge hit in many versions, but it's also got loads of gentle, fragile stuff (the kind of stuff of his that we like the best), like "Peace Go With You Brother" and the original version of "Your Daddy Loves You". A heartbreaking record, and much more of a jazz album than most of his other ones. CD

✨✧ PE Hewitt Jazz EnsembleWinter Winds – The Complete Works 1968 to 1970 (3CD set) ... CD
Now Again, 1968/1969/1970. Used 3 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Brilliantly soulful jazz from the PE Hewitt Jazz Ensemble – a group with a style that mixes the sunny and the spiritual – a box set featuring the originally self-released trilogy of releases Jawbones (1968), Since Washington (1969), and Winter Winds (1970) in one great package from Now Again! Of the trilogy, each is rare enough that we hadn't seen an original LP as of the time of release of this set, and a Japanese CD release of Winter Winds was our only intro to the soulful ingenuity of jazz composer/arranger/vibraphonist/pianist Hewitt. The LPs were actually only pressed in runs of 100 pieces per (!!!) – so this set compiling them is quite revelatory! His group works at a level that's definitely in line with some of our favorite indie jazz at the time – really pushing the boundaries with a great sense of spirit – stretching out towards new ideas, yet never getting too free or too outside to lose their sense of swing. But at another level, there's a slightly groovy undercurrent, too – one that comes from the wordless vocals on Winter Winds, a style that reminds us a bit of the singing on the Sound Of Feeling record with Oliver Nelson – particularly given the modal grooves on the best numbers, but the strength of the groove overall holds true on all three albums. Rhythms are really in the lead at the strongest points – driven by Phil Hewitt's work on piano and vibes, and topped with alto sax and flugelhorn, too. Players include Dick Zemlin on trumpet & piano, Charley Forsberg on alto, Richard Zemlin on flugelhorn, Rick Hearns & Marty Keller on drums. Jawbones includes "Free", "Don't Judge Your Brother", "Ihadmyheadoverthechickensouppot" and more. Since Washington includes "Alone And Watching", "Sad Sunday", " 3AM" and more. Winter Wind includes "I'm Wondering Why", "Oma Rakas", "The Winter Wind", "Tuija", "Baon Que Bash", "Ill Love Song", and "It's Got Two & That's Alright". The box includes reproductions of the original album art plus liner notes, and a 2009 interview by Eothen Alapatt. CD

Ugly Things, 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great issue of this mighty magazine – a publication that we always wait for eagerly, then spend a huge amount of time reading – because each issue is so big and stuffed, there's plenty of articles to hold our attention! This issue's no exception to that rule, either – as it's got great long articles on the Goldebriars (the pre-Millenium group of Curt Boettcher), and the ultra-cool Equals from the UK scene – an important mixed group that featured a young Eddie Grant. There's also a big feature on Simon Stokes – and articles on Total Crudd, Captain Beefheart, Bob Dylan, Balloon Farm, and others – and as usual, there's lots more short features and reviews. Over 150 pages – and a very dense read! Magazine

Croydon Municipal (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the coolest Christmas compilations we've heard in years – an ultra-cool, ultra-rare batch of tunes all hand-picked by St Etienne – with the best sort of vibe of their previous non-seasonal compilations! The material here is mostly British in origin, and almost all of it is completely new to our ears – a fab array of 50s and 60s tunes that include vocal numbers, jazzy bits, and instrumental pop – with lots of fresh songs that aren't just the usual batch of Holiday favorites! There's two dozen songs on the set – which makes for some great extended listening – and titles include "It's Christmas" by Elaine & Derek, "Must Be Santa" by Alma Cogan, "Snowman's Land" by Zack Laurence, "Christmas Time In London Town" by Nina & Frederick, "Christmas Island" by Dickie Valentine, "Get Lost Jack Frost" by John Barry Seven, "My Christmas Prayer" by Billy Fury, "Snow Coach" by Russ Conway, "Christmas Land" by Wally Whyton, "Lonely Pup" by Adam Faith, and "We Three Kings" by Johnny Keating.

Laurindo AlmeidaGuitar From Ipanema ... LP
Capitol, Mid 60s. Very Good ... $9.99
Breezy bossa nova – Hollywood 60s style! The album's one of the best cut for Capitol by guitarist Laurindo Almeida – and has a sweet groovy little style that features Laurindo's lovely guitar work over some lightly dancing small combo backings that include flute, harmonica, organ, percussion, and even a bit of whistling on a few tracks! The vibe's very much in the best Verve/Impulse takes on the bossa – done with a clear California influence, which keeps things cool and breezy – and which also pushes Almeida past his sometimes-staid style on guitar. Two cuts also feature some great vocals by Irene Kral – and titles include "Twilight In Rio", "Old Guitaron", "Sarah's Samba", "Izabella", "Winter Moon", "Girl From Ipanema", and "Choro For People In Love".

Ran Blake feat Houston PersonSuffield Gothic ... LP
Soul Note (Italy), 1984. Near Mint- ... $14.99
An unlikely pairing, but a great one too – quite an unusual chapter in the career of pianist Ran Blake – but in a way, a great set to unlock the soulful undercurrents that have always been in his music! About half the tracks feature the tenor of Houston Person joining in – working these amazing sounds in duets with Ran, and creating this depth of feeling that grabs us right from the start! Given that Person rarely did dates like this too – the set's unusual for him, too – and even when Houston's not on board, Blake's solo lines still have a feeling that's full of soul. Despite the crowd of people on the cover, the album's just a duo/solo outing – and titles include "Indian Winter", "Curtis", "Vanguard", "Old Man River", "Midnight Local To Tate County", "There's Been A Change In My Life", and "Tribute To Mahalia".

Bodast (Steve Howe)Towards Utopia (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Esoteric (UK), 1968. New Copy ... $13.99
You may know Steve Howe as a key member of Yes during their glory days – but the guitarist had a rich resume of work that went back to the early 60s UK scene – including this great stint in the trio Bodast! The group was one that Howe worked with between his time with Tomorrow and Yes – and they've got a tight, stark sound that's different than either group – maybe a bit of the fuzz of Tomorrow, but almost some elements that point back towards Steve's beat years – although the guitar lines get a chance to really stretch out and do some wonderful things here. The material was recorded in 1968, and never issued at the time – and this superb vinyl pressing presents the rare original mix for the first time on vinyl – much grittier than a cleaned-up version that Howe handled in the 80s. Titles include "Black Leather Gloves", "Mr Jones", "Tired Towers", "Do You Remember", "Beyond Winter", "Nether Street", and "1000 Years". CD features bonus tracks – "The Spanish Song", "Power Of Music", and "Come Over Stranger" – recorded by the previous group Canto. CD

Dave BrubeckJazz Impressions Of New York ... LP
Columbia, 1964. Very Good+ ... $14.99
New York's a mighty big place, but it's got a nicely intimate feel in this 60s set from the Dave Brubeck Quartet – one of the combo's overlooked gems from their years on Columbia! The music is all from the TV show Mr Broadway, but there's hardly a showtune feel to the set – and instead, the groove is almost in a hip Henry Mancini sort of mode, but delivered with a smaller combo feel. Tracks are somewhat shorter than the usual Brubeck outing, and balanced nicely between upbeat tracks and more sensitive ones – the former with some well-cut lines by Paul Desmond on alto sax, the latter often with a bit more piano from Dave. The rest of the group includes Gene Wright on bass and Joe Morello on drums – and titles include "Mr Broadway", "Broadway Bossa Nova", "Sixth Sense", "Something To Sing About", "Spring In Central Park", "Lonely Mr Broadway", "Winter Ballad", "Upstage Rhumba", and "Summer On The Sound".

A light and dreamy set of Brazilian vocal tracks – recorded in 1967, and featuring the voice of singer Lenita Bruno, a strong 60s talent with a style that's somewhat like Sylvia Telles. Arrangements on the set are by Clare Fischer – who plays piano, organ, and electric harpsichord in a small combo that also includes guitar by Laurindo Almeida, flute by Bud Shank, and percussion by Paulinho. Some tracks augment the ensemble with a string quartet – who give the material an appropriately sad tone, perfect for Lenita's blue-styled vocals. Includes a nicely grooving version of "Chove Chuva", plus the tracks "Wave", "Winter Moon", "Sing Sing More", "Dindi", "Stay My Love", and "Someone To Light Up My Life". LP, Vinyl record album

June ChristyBallad Collection ... CD
Capitol, 1950s. Used ... $3.99
Great stuff from one of our favorite singers of all time! June has a way with a ballad that still leaves us breathless – turning simple somber songs into dark tapestries of despair and loss, infused with a boozy maturity that makes the lyrics resonate with a sense of pain that's always missing from other versions of the tracks (if there are other versions of the tracks – as some of June's are so good that nobody ever dared touch the songs again!) This CD brings together 16 cuts that perfectly illustrate June's incredible talents, including a number from her classic Something Cool album, issued here in the stereo recordings, which are completely different from the mono ones, which were recorded at a different session years earlier. Titles include "Interlude", "Winter's Got Spring Up Its Sleeve", "The Wind", "The Night We Called It A Day", "Night People", "Nobody's Heart", "Don't Explain", and "Cry Like The Wind". CD

Columbia, 1967. Very Good- ... $19.99
Leonard Cohen's debut for Columbia, one of the most astounding first albums of its era, and to this day a towering achievement in both songwriting and myth making! The production is that perfectly haunting mix of sparseness and grandeur, with Cohen's lyricism piercing and penetrating wonderfully – his voice never sounded better, and this is certainly one of the great "lightening in a bottle" efforts that was hard to top by Cohen or anyone else in the more poetic upper levels of pop music. Includes ""Suzanne", "Master Song", "Winter Lady", "The Stranger Song", "Sisters Of Mercy", "So Long, Marianne", "Hey, That's No Way To Say Goodbye", "Stories Of The Street", "Teachers" and "One Of Us Cannot Be Wrong".

MacArthur Park has Floyd taking on a hip host of tunes from the late 60s – cool rock and pop numbers that are really transformed strongly in the RCA studio blend of pillowy piano and soft orchestrations from arranger Bill McElhiney! Cramer's got that mellow-stepping groove just right, and it's often matched by these lofting basslines on the bottom – on tunes that include "Our Winter Love", "MacArthur Park", "Don't Give Up", "The Odd Couple", "This Guy's In Love With You", and a great vibes-laden take on "Theme From Rosemary's Baby".

One of the best of the Stan Getz bossa nova sessions – and a record that features the great Laurindo Almeida on guitar – playing with more virtuosity than either Charlie Byrd or Joao Gilberto did on their collaborations with Getz! The record's got a driving rhythm section, with lots of long tracks, and nice laid-back solos by both Getz and Almeida – who's getting in some of his few jazz licks of the 60s here, working in a groove similar to that of his earlier sides with Bud Shank, but which sounds almost even better in the languid company of Getz. Cuts include "Outra Vez", "Winter Moon", "Maracatu-Too", and "Samba Da Sahra". Very nice! LP, Vinyl record album

A great little album of short groovy cuts from Dizzy – and actually quite hard to find on vinyl! Despite a title that sounds a bit flowery, the grooves are nice and hard – and Dizzy's playing here with a combo that includes James Moody, Kenny Barron, Billy Butler, and Candido. The sound isn't as funky as the records that Dizzy would later cut for Perception, but it's getting pretty close at times – especially on the tunes that have a nice Latin soul feel. Titles include "Summer Samba", "Bang Bang", "Mas Que Nada", "Tequila", "Winter Samba", and "Get That Money Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

The group sport 3 trumpets, piano, bass, and some very strong percussion – plus vocals in both English and Spanish, which makes for a perfect back and forth mood to the set, handling both straight Latin and Latin Soul numbers with ease! Loads of great tracks – including "Diggin' Rice & Beans", "Manteca", "Really Bad Scene", La Banda Ya Llego", and "Winter Love". Nice, tight, and very very groovy. LP, Vinyl record album

Harris plugs in right from the start – blowing an electric sax that comes up with some groovy groovy sounds – perfect for Stepney to work with on the backdrops – mixing together funky orchestrations, off-kilter strings, and even some prepared piano, ala John Cage – similar to the mode he used with Ramsey Lewis at Cadet!

There's more electric instrumentation in the mix, and arrangements that have the band stepping out more strongly with some rockish inflections, even though the overall approach is still pretty darn folksy – and handled with that really unique, really personal style that makes the group one of the best of the Brit folk scene from the period.

There's no need for The Impressions to push from behind – because with a record like this, they're very firmly in the driver's seat! The album's a treasure through and through – one of the greatest documents of 60s soul from the Chicago scene – filled with sublime original compositions by a young Curtis Mayfield, set to great arrangements from the legendary Johnny Pate! The sound here is immaculate – a groove that's slightly stepping, gently lilting – just enough to get things moving, but with plenty of care not to smother the fragile harmonies of the group. And as on other of the best ABC albums by The Impressions, there's not a hint of filler here – just one great track after another, with titles that include "Amen", "I Made A Mistake", "Don't Let It Hide", "Keep On Pushing", "Somebody Help Me", "Long Long Winter", and "I've Been Trying".

Ryo KawasakiMirror Of My Mind ... CD
Sony (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $13.99
A fantastic fusion classic from guitarist Ryo Kawasaki – and a set that shows his perfect balance between American and Japanese jazz modes in the 70s! The album's got a bit more of a soulful focus than some of Kawasaki's previous work, but loses none of the depth of his feeling – as the approach here is less commercial fusion, than a cool underground blending of jazz, funk, and even a bit of Brazilian – with a quality that reminds us of some of most interesting work on the Bay Area scene of the period. Recording was done in New York – with help from fusion heavyweights that include Leon Pendarvis on keyboards, Harvey Mason on drums, and Michael Brecker on tenor – and singer Radha Shottam appears on half the record, really augmenting the soulful vibe of the set at those points. Even the mellower moments have a nice sort of richness, and a deeper spirit than usual for this sort of record – and titles include the soulful classic "Trinkets & Things" – a worldwide jazz dance classic – plus "Little One", "In & Out Of Love", "Brasiliana", and "Winter's Here".

A fantastic debut from Khalid – a singer we're expecting will shape the sound of American soul in years to come – thanks to the strength of the work on this album! Khalid's got a voice that's totally unique – upfront about his weaknesses and youth, which he never tries to hide with any sort of overdone cliches or posturing – in ways that bring a whole new sort of honesty to mainstream soul! The presentation of the tunes is nicely fresh, too – sometimes quite lean, but not in a way to evoke any sort of "fake" soul – as can sometimes be the case – and instead just open to the organic flow of the words of the singer, which are even more powerful in the subtlety of the setting. Titles include "Young Dumb & Broke", "Another Sad Love Song", "Coaster", "8Teen", "Cold Blooded", "Therapy", "Winter", and "American Teen". LP, Vinyl record album

Way more than just a "boogie" album – as you might think from the title – and much more a hard-hitting batch of funky tunes, mixed with some even cooler laidback numbers! The album follows heavily off the style of Wild & Peaceful – mixing together the group's older crack rhythms with some newer, hipper, jazzier inflections – making for an incredibly powerful sound that really opens them up. Titles include the massively funky "Jungle Jazz" – a jazzy follow up to "Jungle Boogie" – plus some spiritual numbers that have a cosmic soul jazzy feel, like the tracks "Cosmic Energy", "Ancestral Ceremony", and "Winter Sadness". The whole thing's great – and other titles include "Mother Earth", "Caribbean Festival", and "Ride The Rhythm". CD

Patty McGovernWednesday's Child ... LP

One of the most obscure 50s vocal sessions on Atlantic Records – a sophisticated set of material set to beautifully shaded arrangements from Thomas Talbert! Patty McGovern's vocals are somewhat fragile and soft – but in a really nice way that mixes beautifully with Talbert's slightly modern backdrops – music that uses light woodwinds and a nice dose of jazz to create a moody, almost sad-tinged sound. The quality's quite different than many other 50s vocal dates – and it really makes us wish we'd heard more from the team of McGovern and Talbert. Titles include originals "Wednesday's Child", "I Like Snow", "Love Isn't Everything", and "Winter Song" – plus "Get Out Of Town", "Alone Together", "All In Fun", and "Hooray For Love".

Carolanne PeggCarolanne Pegg ... CD
Transatlantic/Esoteric (UK), 1973. New Copy ... $13.99
A really weird little record from British singer Carolanne Pegg – a vocalist who's clearly gotten her start in the same folksy generation as Sandy Denny or Madd Prior – but who also is going for a different sort of vibe here! In some ways, Pegg might be the lost link between the Brit folk scene and the emergence of Kate Bush in the late 70s – as the ancient sound and timeless worlds explored by the former certainly allowed the lyrical interplay of the latter – and Pegg finds a way to bridge both worlds through both her unique phrasing, and the album's use of more electric instrumentation. The album's still got a very standalone quality of its own – a sound that answers to nobody else – but it's also quite compelling to think about it in terms of the date and approach. Titles include "A Witch's Guide To The Underground", "Fair Fortune's Star", "Mouse & The Crow", "Winter People", "The Lizard", and "Man Of War". CD
