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".

CrystalMusic Life ... LP
Favorite (France), Early 80s. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
Cool Caribbean soul from back in the day – a set that owes plenty to American modern and AOR styles of the time, but which also has its own sort of special vibe as well! The production is tight, but never too slick – and the tunes have this extended, open flow that makes for some especially striking moments – maybe a bit of jazz in some of the Fender Rhodes, or a breezy, almost scatting quality to some of the French language lyrics – which are sung by both a male and female singer. The whole thing's quite different than Haitian or other modes from the time – and titles include "Ti Gacon", "Nostalgie", "Music Life", "Santo Domingo", "Lan Mise", and "Fantastic Girl".

JD EmmanuelElectronic Minimal Music – 1979 to 1983 (3LP set – with bonus download) ... LP
Black Sweat (Italy), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3LP Gatefold ... $48.99
A great overview of the early years of JD Emmanuel – work from his first four years of composing and performing, collected here together for the first time ever! The music is a beautifully moody, spacious approach to electronics – very much in the best spirit of the German scene at the end of the 70s – with elements that recall some of our favorite Sky Records material. Yet there's other moments that have more of a minimalist vibe – incredible keyboard lines that unfold over long passages in space, with a very strong nod to Terry Riley's Rainbow In Curved Air. Emmanuel manages to make all of this music in a wonderful way that's never self-conscious at all – and which also avoids any new age cliches as well – and the whole thing is a really amazing discovery in sound, with appeal to so many different strands of electronic tastes. Titles include "Frantic", "Moving Backwards In Time", "Changling", "March Of The Colossus", "Trance 46", "Driving Force", "Engaging Warp Speed", "Cloud Watching", "Movement Into Lightspeed", and "Free Flight".

Claudio Gizzi, Sandro Brugnolini, L Piccioni, & OtCommenti Musicali – Thrilling Tensione Terrore Vol 2 ... LP
Contempo (Italy), Early 80s. New Copy ... $21.99
A host of Italian horror soundtrack composers, serving up spooky new sounds for the 80s – reflecting the shift towards more electronic instrumentation on the scene – but still used here with all the best vivid elements learned from an older era of soundtrack music! Claudio Gizzi takes over all of side one on this sound library set – and his music is a masterpiece of dark sounds and subtle sonic elements – all electronic, from what we can tell – but with a textural sophistication that takes it way past the simpler keyboard modes of the time. Side two features work from a variety of other composers, and is even more complex overall – and apart from one clubby space disco number, most of the music is pretty spare and spooky too. Titles include "Plasma", "Micromateria", "Ossessione", "Sul Filo", "Il Fantasma Dell'Opera", "Il Grande Fratello", "Le Voci Di Dentro", and "Spasmodica Attesa". LP, Vinyl record album

Murray McNabbWay In Is The Way Out – Music Of Murray McNabb (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Sarang Bang (New Zealand), Late 70s/1980s/2000s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $32.99
A much-needed look at the work of New Zealand keyboardist/composer Murray McNabb – an artist who's hardly known within his own nation, much less the rest of the world – but one who comes across here with a wonderful array of sounds! The record mixes together vintage recordings from the 70s and 80s with a few more contemporary tracks – and throughout it all, Murray's a hell of a talent with a really revelatory sound – able to create these colors and tones with a very spiritual vibe – often playing electric piano, but in a setting that also has plenty of strong acoustic elements too – including great reeds from Aussie jazz legend Brian Smith, whose sharp edges really bring a lot of bite to the record! A few numbers are warm, and almost funky – and throughout the whole set, McNabb demonstrates this great ear for lyrical lines that have a great deal of power, and which never fail to captivate our ears. Other musicians include Gianmarco Liguori or Tuhi Timoti on guitar, Kim Paterson on trumpet, and Peter Wood on vibes – and a number of tracks are taken from tapes, without set dates of recording. Titles include "Paradox", "The Private Life Of Birds", "Parisienne", "Song For The Dreamweaver", "Mr Gone", "Karmapa Chenno", "Coquero", "Magenta", "King Kong", "Fourth World", "Meditation In D", and "Radio Priestess".

✨✧ VariousSchnitzelbeat Vol 2 – You Are the Only One – Raw Teenage Beat & Garage Rock Anthems From Austria 1964 to 1970 ... LP
Digatone (Austria), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Don't let the title or the cover point you in the wrong direction, because this set's definitely full of the same sort of rare psych and garage tracks you'd expect from American or British collections from the same period! The tunes show a surprisingly strong scene going down in Austria at the end of the 60s – one that maybe is just a touch behind of the trends in the UK and US, but also more than comfortable enough to play a lot with the styles – adding in some really cool twists and turns along the way, and doing a lot more than just offering up a local brand of beat group music. As with the first volume, the track list is great – and the package comes with full notes on the music – an array of titles that include "Future" by The Meadows, "Little Girl" by The Gamblers, "You Are The Only One" by The Slaves, "LSD" by The Desperates, "LSD 3000" by Harry David Quintet, "Beat In E" by Les Fantoms, "Say The Word" by The Earls, and "I Had Forgotten" by The Lost Generation.

✨✧ VariousSoul Sok Sega – Sega Sounds From Mauritius 1973 to 1979 (180 gram pressing with CD) ... LP
Strut (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Amazing music you've probably never heard before – all from the tiny island of Mauritius in the 70s, and served up in a stunning mix of funk, blues, and soul! The grooves here are very offbeat – with rhythms that belie the island's location in the Indian Ocean near Madagascar, mixed with more contemporary touches on electric guitar, bass, and keyboards – set to lyrics that are often sung in French, usually with these haunting changes and oddly melancholy modes – all of which makes for music that's every bit as emotively powerful as it is downright groovy! Strut Records have always turned us on to new and unusual sounds – but this time around, they've really done something special – and the collection is one of our favorite releases ever from the long-running label. Titles include "Afro Mauricien" by Georges Jean Louis, "Mo Mari Fini Alle" by Catherine Velienne, "Elida" by Michel Legris, "Mone Lasser Dire Toi" by Harold Berty, "Bhai Aboo" by Claudio, "Mo Parrain" by Christophe, "Manuel Bitor" by John Kenneth Nelson, "Eliza" by Georgie Joi, and "Soul Sock Sega" by Ti L'Afrique.

Brian AugerBack To The Beginning Again – A Brian Auger Anthology Vol 2 ... LP
Freestyle (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $21.99
A totally wonderful collection – even better than the first volume, and filled with rare and unusual work from this legendary British keyboardist! The set features loads of gems from Brian's early years – some mod piano rompers and heavy Hammond groovers – showing a very strong tie to the soul jazz sound of the early 60s, which then transforms into some excellent 70s groovers as the set moves in – work that's every bit as tremendous as the tunes that start out the set. Even if you've got some of Auger's albums in your collection, there's way more to discover here – and the set has a brilliant focus on the deepest, most soulful side of his music! Titles include "In & Out", "Love For Sale", "Maiden Voyage", "Inner City Blues", "Brain Damage", "Happiness Is Just Around The Bend", "Funky Mama", "Moanin", "Straight Ahead", "Work Song", "Poinciana", and "Light On The Path". Even features notes on the music by Auger himself! LP, Vinyl record album

Aziza (Dave Holland/Chris Potter/Lionel Loueke/EriAziza ... LP
Dare 2, 2016. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99 25.99
A really unusual group, with a sound that's certainly the sum of its wonderful parts – but also different in ways you might not expect! The lineup is excellent – the legendary Dave Holland on bass, Lionel Loueke on guitar, Chris Potter on tenor and soprano sax, and Eric Harland on drums – all working together in these very groovy styles that seem to have Holland pulling a lot more bold basslines than usual – almost as if he's using an electric version of the instrument, although it appears to just be an acoustic with a pickup! There's a soulful vibe to the record that you might not expect – shades of color and tone that are maybe closest to Loueke's music, but also very different than his own records – and Potter's really great in this setting, and blows with these open lines that are still as angular and sharp as usual, but maybe a bit warmer too. Titles include "Blue Sufi", "Aziza Dance", "Summer 15", "Walkin The Walk", and "Finding The Light". LP, Vinyl record album

Bama – The Village PoetGhettos Of The Mind ... LP
Aware, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A lost classic in the funky poetry mode of the 70s – and right up there with the best work from the time by the Last Poets, Jim Ingram, or Gil Scott Heron! Bama's got a rough-edged voice that works very well with the funkier backings of the set – handled by a team that includes Bernard Purdie on drums, Richard Tee on keyboards, and Cornell Dupree on guitar – and this rough vocal style also fits the themes of the tunes, which are still as political and righteous as other work in the genre, but a bit more down to earth as well. The music itself was arranged and composed by Jimmy Wizner and Billy Jackson – and titles include "Ghettos Of The Mind", "The Right To Be Wrong", "Nothingness", "Drunken Sister", "I Got Soul", "Welfare Slave", "Social Narcotics, and "Blackman, My Brother".

BarbatuquesAyu ... LP
Mr Bongo (UK), 2016. New Copy ... About November 25, 2016 (delayed)
Very cool sounds from this unique Brazilian group – an ensemble whose music mostly comes from their voices and percussive sounds made on their bodies! The approach is surprisingly great – and maybe not nearly as squishy as you'd expect – as there's a clean, clear sound to the music – one that almost feels sampled or electronic at times, without any of the hippie-dippy elements that could come from such a project. Instead, the percussive elements at the core really keep things bristling – and seem to infect the vocals too – creating a sharpness throughout, one that's only echoed and magnified when guests artists Nana Vasconcelos, Marcelo Pretto, or Hermeto Pascoal come into the mix. Titles include "Barra Do Dia", "Valsa Manca", "Skamenco", "Kerere", "Ta Na Roda", "Totem", "Eh Eh", "Tudo Fica", and "Samba Lele". LP, Vinyl record album

Black SabbathNever Say Die (180 gram gray vinyl) ... LP
Warner, 1978. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99 21.99
An overlooked gem from the initial run of Black Sabbath – the last album to feature Ozzy Osborne on vocals, and a set that really hones the group's power of the previous years! You might expect a more commercial outing from the cover – or maybe think that these guys were trying on some newer waves at the end of the 70s – but honestly, the guitars are as sharp as ever, Ozzy's vocals are nice and fierce, and there's a cool, compressed vibe that really shows these guys influencing a new generation with their music. The bass is maybe not as heavy as before, but that seems to be the only point of power missing from the pentagram – on titles that include "Never Say Die", "Junior's Eyes", "Johnny Blade", "Shock Wave", "Air Dance", "Swinging The Chain", and "Breakout".

BloPhase IV (with bonus download) ... LP
PMG (Austria), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99
Blo have gone through a few different phases before this fantastic fourth album – but none of them as funky as the work on this set – which may well set a whole new standard for the Nigerian music legends! The groove here is super-tight, with lots of excellent bass and drums snapping at the bottom – and some of the darkness of their earlier work is replaced by a upbeat style that really lifts the music up – although never in ways that are trying to put a fake smile on things for commercial purposes! Instead, these guys just seem to have a great sense of their own energy – and maybe an even stronger influence from American funk than before, turned towards a grittier Nigerian groove, with some deeply soulful production. Titles include "Scandi Boogie", "Trace Of Suicide", "Music Makes You Happy", "Save Me", "You're So Kind", "Move Up", and "I Miss Your Lovin". LP, Vinyl record album

Braen's MachineTemi Ritmici E Dinamici (with bonus CD) ... LP
Liuto/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

BreakawayStraight On To The Top (with bonus CD) ... LP
Breakaway/BBE (UK), 1979. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $24.99
The second set from St Louis funk combo Breakaway – and the album already shows a great deal of growth – especially in the territory of rhythm! Breakaway have definitely dug some of the best club modes from the New York scene – and work here in a jazzy disco style that's filled with sweet keyboard lines alongside the female lead vocals – all with a vibe that's nicely stripped-down, and still lives up to the indie spirit of the group. There's some jazz currents on the instrumentation, and the set features some guest work on horns, which nicely expands the sound – and helps give the blue-eyed soul vocals a nice sort of punch. Titles include "Straight On To The Top", "You Are Love", "Back & Forth", "There's A New Tree In The Forest", "Work With The Music", and "Breakaway". LP, Vinyl record album

Budos BandBurnt Offering ... LP
Daptone, 2014. New Copy Gatefold ... $14.99 17.98
Some of the deepest, heaviest work we've ever heard from the Budos Band – as you might guess from the album's dark title and cover! There's a bit of a heavy metal look to the package, but the sounds within are still the righteous funk we've always loved from Budos – yet are also inflected with a very slight bit of trippy elements this time around – a touch of fuzz on the guitar, or cosmic echoes on the keyboards – which really balance out strongly with the group's bold horns and razor-sharp drums! The slight changes make for a more sinister sound than before, and show that these guys continue to be one of the most forward-thinking funk bands around – never content to just rest on the laurels of their great musicianship, but always leaping ahead with new ideas. Titles include "Shattered Winds", "Black Hills", "Magus Mountain", "Into The Fog", "The Sticks", "Burnt Offering", and "Turn & Burn". LP, Vinyl record album

Camberwell NowEP Collection (Meridian/Greenfingers) (with bonus download) ... LP
Modern Classics/Light In The Attic, Mid 80s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $18.99 19.99
A great LP package that brings together the two important EP releases from Camberwell Now – that excellent group formed by Charles Hayward after the dissolution of This Heat! The first half of the set is from Meridian – the group's first effort, and a wonderful batch of music that kind of takes an earlier Brit prog sound into the post-punk years – a bit like some of Robert Wyatt's material of the time, as are the vocals – but with maybe more of the sense of sound and texture that you'd expect from Hayward! Overall, the music is far less rhythmic than his previous efforts – but that's what makes it great – almost a weirder abstraction of sounds you might hear on Factory Records. Titles include "Cutty Sark", "Trade Winds", "Splash", and "Pearl Divers". Greenfingers is the last recorded material from Camberwell Now – an EP released in 1987, but one with a sound that feels much more like the UK indie scene of 5 years before – especially that point when groups were breaking past straighter punk, and really trying to integrate some new ideas with their music. There's definitely a continuation of the Robert Wyatt vibe – on both the vocal performance, and some of the moodier electronics – and titles include "Greenfingers", "Element Unknown", "Know How", and "Mystery Of The Fence".

Doug CarnAdams Apple ... LP
Black Jazz, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
The last album in a legendary run of music from keyboardist Doug Carn – his final album for the Black Jazz label, and a set that pushes even farther than his previous efforts! Jean Carn isn't in the group this time around, but the set does feature a totally great twin-vocal approach – with singing by Joyce Green and John Conner, blending their voices together in a style that's right up there with the most righteous 70s jazz experiments by Horace Silver or Billy Gault! This vocal balance really brings a new sort of power to Carn's music – furthering the righteous spirit of earlier years with a hell of a lot of energy – also aided by great instrumental work from Ronnie Laws on tenor and soprano sax, Thurman Green on trombone, Calvin Keys and Nathan Page on guitars, and Big Black on percussion. Titles include the classic "Higher Ground" – plus "Adam's Apple", "Western Sunrise", "Chant", "Sanctuary", "The Messenger", and "Mighty Mighty". LP, Vinyl record album

Daniela CasaSocieta Malata (transparent vinyl pressing) ... LP
Flipper/Dagored (Italy), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
There's a weird and wonderful assortment of styles on this old sound library session from the 70s – a hip blend of electronics, keyboards, guitar, and percussion – all served up in some mighty cool modes from Daniela Casa! The music is moody at points, but often quite rhythmic – at a pace that helps keep things focused, and which makes the set way more than just an echoey studio experiment – with tuneful results that are somewhere in the best territory of electric horror scoring of the time. Titles include "Pericolo", "Strade Vuote", "Ignoto", "Vizio", "Noia", and "Occultismo". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited numbered edition of 500 copies.)
