African Head ChargeDrastic Season (with bonus download) ... LP
On-U Sound (UK), 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 19.98
A record so cool, it's practically a genre unto itself – and a set that's a key part of the On-U Sound approach of the 80s! The group draw initial influence from 70s Jamaican dub, but never hold to just the roots of that music – and instead explode into a huge range of odd sounds and styles that really mark their role in the UK post-punk scene of the time. There's loads of odd noise, weird effects, and plenty more going on here – interacting with rootsy percussion, keyboards, and plenty of heavy basslines – on titles that include "Timbuktu Express", "I Want Water", "Bazaar", "African Hedge Hog", "Depth Charge", "Fruit Market", "Snake In The Hole", and "Many Generations". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Edip AkbayramEdip Akbayram Ve Dostlar – Singles Overview 1974 to 1977 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Pharaway Sounds (Spain), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $25.99
Rare singles from this ultra-cool Turkish singer – including many tracks that are b-sides of vintage 45s, and maybe even trippier than the album material we've heard before! The work was recorded in the mid 70s, but there's much more of a late 60s vibe going on here – from the trippy production to the fuzzy guitars, and the urgency in Edip's vocals – which have this surprising power even if you can't understand the language – maybe because the rest of the music's so captivatingly cool! A few cuts get slightly funky, as well as fuzzy – and titles include "Kahpe Felek", "Sen Actin Yarayi", "Affetmem Seni", "Zalim Zalim", "Gam Ustune Gam Yapilir", and "Garip". Includes bonus insert of notes, too! LP, Vinyl record album

Alessandro AlessandroniPanoramic Feeling + Le Film Trouve – A Panoramic Experience (clear vinyl pressing with bonus DVD) ... LP
Flipper/Dagored (Italy), 1971. New Copy LP & DVD ... $32.99
A beautiful sound library gem from the legendary Alessandro Alessandroni – recorded for the commercial Flipper label, and issued publicly here for the first time ever! The music is sublime – that side of Alessandroni that came closest to the bossa and vocal styles of Ennio Morricone in the late 60s – with lots of breezy rhythms at the bottom, and a blend of instrumental passages, wordless chorus lines from I Cantori Moderni, and even some of that famous whistling from Alessandroni himself! We especially love the chorus bits – as they almost feel like The Swingle Singers trying to follow an Edda Dell'Orso sort of pathy – blended here with cool keyboards, including some totally wonderful electric harpsichord! Titles include "Young Flirt", "Green Hills", "North Wind", "Car Drive", "White Sands", and "Love Feeling". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the DVD "Le Film Trouve – A Panoramic Experience" – featuring footage from amateur films from around the world!)

Tony AllenBlack Voices ... LP
Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 1999. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
A seminal set that really put Tony Allen back on top – a record that showed that Allen was way more than just Fela's drummer, or another Afro Funk artist in general – but instead a really free-thinking, deep-concept musician overall! The album comes from key time that Allen spent on the Paris scene in the 90s – really refining a new sound, while keeping all the best bits from before – creating this new sort of darker groove that almost mixes older percussion with kind of a spacey style that's echoes proggish funk from a range of groups from Can to Cymande! There's loads of cool keyboards and tight guitar lines, and even the vocals have some spacey production that makes them fit nicely with the grooves. Titles include "Asiko", "Get Together", "Black Voices", and "The Same Blood". LP, Vinyl record album

Alvarius (Francesco Zampaglione/Andrea Moscianese)Tulpa – Perdizioni Mortali (with bonus CD) ... LP
Cinedelic (Italy), 2013. New Copy ... $16.99
A cool contemporary score from Italy – but one that feels like horror greats from the late 70s and early 80s! The instrumentation here is mostly in an old school electric style – keyboards and guitars that echo the music of Goblin, but at a level that's often more spare and less jamming – stretching out with this great sense of space that really builds up the tension and mood throughout – to create a really captivating record, even away from the screen. Titles include "Phurba", "Escape From Tulpa", "Lonely Nights", "Working My Ass Off", "Italian Giallo", "Lisa's Theme", and "Bloody Radio". LP, Vinyl record album
(Colored vinyl with bonus CD – limited to 333 copies!)

Atlantide (Jean Paul Massiera)Atlantide (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Replica (France), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99
One of the most rock-oriented sets we've ever heard from JP Massiera – who wrote all the words and music here for a French group who take on the myth of Atlantide! The style mixes tuneful lines on guitar, bass, drums, and percussion – without some of the keyboards you might expect from the prog scene at the time, and instead this warmly harmonic approach on the vocals – at a level that almost seems to take off nicely from the multi-tracking style used by Yes! And there is a bit of cool acoustic guitar soloing – very deft, and another Yes-like touch – but the overall sound of the record is very unique, as you'd expect from the participation of Massiera. Titles include "Images", "Atlantide", "Soleil Noir", "Reverie", and "Le Regard Des Dieux". LP, Vinyl record album

AurraBody Rock ... LP
Family Groove, Mid 80s. New Copy ... $12.99
Never-heard work from Aurra – a full album of grooves recorded in the years after the duo had left Salsoul Records, but still had plenty of great music to offer on their own! The style here is nice and lean – loads of bass and sweet keyboards from Steve Washington, who sings a bit alongside Sheila Horne – sometimes both with vocoder, which really emphasizes the electro soul sound of the set! The tunes are tight, catchy, and were all recorded in Ohio – with the perfect 80s funk groove we've come to expect from the giants from that scene. Titles include "Who Are You", "Body Rock", "Danger Zone", "I'll Let You Go", "It's Up To You", "Somebody", and "Are You Foolin Around". LP, Vinyl record album

Beat Konducta (Madlib)Beat Konducta Vol 3 – Beat Konducta In India ... LP
Stones Throw, 2007. New Copy ... $12.99
Hazy beatcraft steeped in Indian soundtrack style funk, strings and percussion from the indefatigable Madlib – Volume 3 in the increasingly adventurous and conceptual outings of the Beat Konducta! This time out Madlib, er, Beat Konducta is conducting beats, strings & things from India and/or otherwise East – but the way in which the beats bluntly thump is quintessential Madlib – you know it and love it from the first beat! 'Lib really breathes fresh life into this approach – going miles deeper than anyone out there doing the Bollywood-hip hop hybrid – coming up with a sound all his own. Masterful! "Onthanewthing", "Indian Deli", "Rumble", "Dancing Girls Theme", "Piano Garden", "Dark Alley Incidental Music", "Early Party", "Fifth Chant", "The Rip Off (Scene 3)", and "Sitar Ride".

Jo BissoDance To It ... LP
Disques D'Esperance/Africa Seven (UK), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99
Clubby funk from the great Jo Bisso – a set that's got maybe even more of a New York vibe than some of his previous records – and that's saying a lot, given that Jo always liked the big city grooves! There's plenty of sweet disco elements in the mix – including heavy acoustic percussion, quick-riffing guitars, and some great moogy keyboards – the last of which gives the record an especially nice feel, and kind of an offbeat edge that makes for a nice change alongside some of the vocals! Jo's still got some Afro funk currents in the music, too – but they're all very tightly fused onto the warmer clubby modes, which are the real appeal of the record. Titles include "Odwa", "Don't Fight The Feeling", "Ramaya", "Let's Keep It Together", "Dance To It (parts 1 & 2)", and "Give It Up". LP, Vinyl record album

Franco BixioA Pugni Nudi (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Cinevox (Italy), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
A funky soundtrack for this film about fist fighting – scored by the great Franco Bixio with the same sense of punch and power he brought to his crime and cop scores! The music's got this great blend of strings and pulsating passages – a sense of drama that's never overdone, and which has always got an undercurrent of funk as well – unfolding beautifully through the use of electric bass at the the bottom of most tracks, even some of the larger arrangements. Some of the best numbers have very cool keyboard or piano – ringing out with a cool compressed sound that's mighty nice – and a few cuts even have some nice funky breaks as well! Titles include "With Bare Fist", "A Fist In The Thought", "Noble Impulse", "Dog's Heart", "With Clenched Fists", and "The Hunt Down". LP, Vinyl record album

Doug Hream BluntMy Name Is Doug Hream Blunt ... LP
Luaka Bop, Late 80s. New Copy ... $18.99 19.98
The long-overdue formal presentation of the music of Doug Hream Blunt – a self-taught, self-styled San Francisco soul singer from the 80s – one who recorded a handful of tunes that never really saw the light of day! Doug's got an unusual style – almost more 70s soul in its earnest approach, especially the lyrics – but delivered with a lean style that certainly has some 80s elements – yet none of the heavy keyboards or more electronic modes you might expect. Instead, there's this almost earthy approach – a definite homegrown feel that makes the music really compelling, especially in Blunt's honesty through the lyrics, and unabashed way of putting the songs forward. The work lay undiscovered for years – until Doug brought some of his un-distributed albums into a San Francisco store, which eventually started the journey that led to this great reissue of his music by Luaka Bop! Titles include "Fly Guy", "Whiskey Man", "Ride The Tiger", "Loveland", "Big Top", "Gentle Persuasion", and "Caribbean Queen". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Braen's MachineTemi Ritmici E Dinamici (with bonus CD) ... LP
Liuto Records/Schema (Italy), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
Maybe the coolest and grooviest music we've heard from the obscure Braen's Machine sound library project from early 70s Italy – a record that's less tripped out than its predecessors, and instead has this great style that's heavy on bossa elements and funky jazz! The vibe's a bit like the best Italian soundtracks of the period – especially work by Morricone or Trovajoli – and the group still apparently features contributions from Alessandro Alessandroni, working with Piero Umiliani – which gives the whole thing a very strong soundtrack pedigree! Instrumentation includes some mighty nice keyboards – both Hammond and electric piano – and lots of great production on familiar instruments, which can give things like a snare drum a very odd crackle, or a flute this weirdly spacious sound. Titles include "Movimento", "Dinimica", "Gara", "Passeggiata", "Aspetti Grotteschi", "Esercizi Ginnici", "Ritmica Sportiva", and "Rinuncia". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes bonus CD of full album!)

Andre BrasseurLost Gems From The 70s (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Sdban (Belgium), 1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $32.99
Fantastic sounds from Belgian Hammond hero Andre Brasseur – a musician who clearly cut a heck of a lot of records back in the 70s, as evidenced by the huge range of record covers and 45 sleeves inside! Yet Brasseur's also one of those guys who never fully got his due – a keyboard talent who could work both in mellow instrumental and popular thematic styles – but who also cut some overlooked funky tracks during the 70s – the best of which are brought together in this sweet little set! The Sdban label have given us some other Belgian grooves from years back, but this package may well be their best so far – as Brasseur's work here really runs a great gamut, all of it wonderful – from tight, straight, soul-drenched organ lines – to other moments that are filled with weird sounds and flourishes, but set to a totally tight groove. The album's a great introduction to his work – and with all the rare records pictured within, it's virtually a blueprint for future crate-digging too! Titles inxlude "Sundance", "Saturnus", "Wild Fury", "Ali", "Red Dust", "Mad Train", "Funky", "Relax", and "Stress". LP, Vinyl record album

Julius BrockingtonUnited Chair ... LP
Today, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Wild funky keyboards from Julius Brockington – a player who worked a bit on both soul and gospel albums during the early 70s, and one of the odder talents in the funky music business. The album's got a nicely off-kilter sound – and most of the tracks are original compositions. Julius has his hands on an Arp, which he plays to great effect, and many of the tracks are nice and long – and kind of messed up! Titles include "Gettin' Into It", "Lost Tribe", "Jaded Jackie", and "In the Back of the Churchyard". LP, Vinyl record album

Bulbous CreationYou Won't Remember Dying (with bonus download) ... LP
Numero, 1969. New Copy ... $16.99 19.98
A record that definitely lives up to the promise of its cover – especially the creepy image of a skeleton shooting up on the front! Bulbous Creation hail from the same Kansas scene documented on Numero's Cavern Sound compilation – but unlike some of the other groups, they've got more than enough going on to offer up a full album here – a really heady, tripped-out batch of music that may well be some of the weirdest ever recorded in that legendary cave in Missouri! The production is almost a bit muddy at times – or maybe it's the way the instruments are performed – which creates this even more sinister feel to the whole thing – as if you've surprised the group during a very private moment, or stumbled upon them performing some ritual in the woods! The song titles say an awful lot about the record, too – and include "Satan", "Hooked", "Under The Black Sun", "Fever Machine Man", and "End Of The Page". LP, Vinyl record album

Doug CarnRevelation ... LP
Black Jazz, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
The Black Jazz recordings of Doug Carn are always a revelation – some of the most powerful, progressive work on the American underground of the early 70s – music that got Carn into way more record collections than you might expect! The sound here is a perfect summation of Doug's early genius – his own work on organ and keyboards, never overdone and mixed perfectly with a righteous array of acoustic sounds from Rene McLean on alto and tenor and Olu Dara on trumpet – both players who soar to the skies on waves of energy begun by Carn! Wife Jean Carn sings on a number of tracks – with this heavenly style that's mighty righteous – every bit as soulful as her later work at Philly International, but in a very different way. The set includes Doug's great reading of "Naima" – plus other wonderful cuts that include "Power & Glory", "Feel Free", "Jihad", "Fatherhood", and "God is One". LP, Vinyl record album

John CarpenterLost Themes II (with download) ... LP
Sacred Bones, 2016. New Copy ... $15.99 19.98
If you dig the classic soundtrack work of John Carpenter, you'll find plenty to love here – as the album's overflowing with excellent tracks that rival his famous music for films like Halloween and Escape To New York! In fact, the sound of these cuts is right in the same mode as those – very late 70s/early 80s – with lots of space between the keyboard lines, and a mostly electronic approach to the music – those long lines and lean moments that Carpenter used so well to emphasize fear and tension on the movie screen! Titles include "Dark Blues", "Virtual Survivor", "Bela Lugosi", "Windy Death", "Distant Dream", "Angel's Asylum", "Persia Rising", and "White Pulse". LP, Vinyl record album

CerroneCerrone IV – The Golden Touch (with bonus CD) ... LP
Cotillion/Because (France), 1978. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $18.99
Cerrone's definitely got the Golden Touch here – grooving long and strong, with that mix of cosmic club and warmer disco that made his 70s music so great! The album's a masterpiece all the way through – driven by great percussion from the maestro, and swirled up into a heavenly mix at the legendary Trident studios – with some mighty sweet keyboards that really make the whole thing sparkle! There's a nice undercurrent of fuzz at points, too – hinting at French club to come – and the whole thing's a wonderful standard-setting record that really earns all the accolades it's gotten over the years. Titles include the long funky version of "Rocket In The Pocket" – plus "Je Suis Music", "Look For Love", and "Music Of Life". LP, Vinyl record album

ClusterSowiesoso (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Sky/Bureau B (Germany), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
A key chapter in the career of the legendary Cluster – one that has the German duo of Hans-Joachim Rodelius and Dieter Moebius stepping back from their fuller sound of records past – hitting a spare, spacious, lightly electronic sound that would have a huge impact on modern music for many years to come! The feel here is similar to some of the pair's work with Brian Eno, but even more spare overall – often quiet, and almost organic at times – even though most instrumentation comes from electric guitar, keyboards, and analogue electronics. There's an understated quality to the record that makes for a key break from the overindulgence of prog – a move that Cluster made brilliantly to keep themselves healthy for many years to come! Titles include "Zum Wohl", "Sowiesoso", "Halwa", "Dem Wanderer", "Umleitung", and "Es War Einmal". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Cometa (Kassin)Cometa ... LP
Nublu, 2016. New Copy Gatefold ... $19.99 20.99
A totally wonderful project from the mad musical world of Brazilian genius Kassin – a set of all-instrumental tracks by the group Cometa – a combo who seem equally at home in the worlds of jazz and funk, as they do in a much wider territory of music, too! The record bristles with so many elements at once, each new track seems to be a fresh surprise – as the group will slide into moments that echo older soundtracks, or surf instrumentals, or even some of the more contemporary modes that Kassin has given us in his projects of the past decade or so – but fused into a more live, spontaneous energy by this group! The lineup includes lots of excellent keyboard lines and guitar work (the latter from Kassin), plus drums and guitar – yet despite these familiar elements, the overall sound is quite unique, and very fresh. Titles include "Jogada Senil", "Marini Squad", "Antenna", "Ashes", "Troy", "Liquid Jesus", "Bad Weather", and "Double Dip". LP, Vinyl record album
