African Music MachineBlack Water Gold ... LP
Soul Power, 1972/1974. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $9.99
Incredible work from the obscure African Music Machine – a southern funk combo led by bassist Louis Villery – a legendary batch of funky singles, finally brought together as a full album! The band has a very unique sound that involves a lot of rolling bubbling basslines, spacey organ grooves, tight choppy guitar riffs, and punchy horn blasts – almost with the African elements promised in the title, but served up with a deeper funk sound all the way through! In a way, the group's a bit like Cymande or some of the other 70s hybrid ensembles – yet they've got a lot less dub, a much more direct funky groove, and plety of raw southern elements in the mix as well! This is the funky 45 material we first cut our teeth on back in the day – and the original singles are legendary! Includes massive cuts like "Black Water Gold (Pearl)", "A Girl In France", "Never Name A Baby (Before It's Born), "Making Nassau Fruit Drink", "Camel Time", "The Dapp", "Tropical", and "Mr. Brown".

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
(These copies have a small top seam split, but have been reduced in price.)

AtomicThere's A Hole In The Mountain ... LP
Jazzland (Norway), 2013. New Copy ... $18.99
Maybe the most brilliant work so far from Atomic – and definite proof that this Swedish ensemble just keeps getting better and better with each new recording! Every player in the quintet is a star in his own right – Fredrik Ljungkvist on tenor and baritone sax, Magnus Broo on trumpet, Havard Wilk on piano, Ingebrigt Haker Flaten on bass, and Paal Nilssen-Love on drums – but what's really amazing is the way they come together as one for the record – wrapping their strong identities together, and forging out with this focused sound that has a lot more power than ever before! All the musicians know the open space of freedom, but have found a territory that can hold them all – where they can respectfully create this wonderful new sound together – in a mix of modern jazz and avant expression that seems to echo some of the best recent work from Chicago. Titles include "There's A Hole In The Mountain", "Civilon", "Wolf Cage", "Accidentals", "Labyrinths", and "Available Exits". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Roy AyersEverybody Loves The Sunshine ... LP
Polydor, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $10.99
One of Roy Ayers' biggest albums ever – and also one of his deepest, too! The whole thing's an incredible album of mellow jazzy soul – and it shows Roy at the crossroads, perfecting his earlier funk style with a sweet mellow R&B edge, getting a bit slicker, but still staying on the righteous path, and opening up a whole new bag in soul music. There's a wonderful electric vibe running through the record – not just from Roy's vibes, but from the Fender Rhodes and Arp work by Phillip Woo – and the amazing energy of the rest of the group too. Features the landmark title cut – "Everybody Loves The Sunshine", one of those tunes that becomes more and more of a classic each year – plus spiritual numbers like "Third Eye" , "Keep on Walking", and "The Golden Rod". Very righteous, and with a cool dope jazzy groove! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Barbara & ErniePrelude To ... LP
Cotillion, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A folk funk classic from the early 70s – and a weird little record that has a sound that's unlike anything else we can think of! The arrangements are quite soulful, almost funky at times – with a righteous undercurrent that reminds us of Richard Evans or Charles Stepney at Cadet Records. But the vocals – by singer Barbara Massey – have a flanged-out quality that's clearly overdubbed, creating a double-voiced sound that's almost a bit like Brasil 66! This mix of modes is really great – completely unique, and sublime throughout – with a vibe that was years ahead of its time, and which is finally beginning to get some recognition these many years later. Arrangements are by the pair, but Deodato also had a hand in the record too – and the core combo of musicians includes Grady Tate on drums, Ralph McDonald on percussion, and Sam Brown on guitar – alongside more guitars from Ernie and keyboards and piano from Barbara. Tracks include "Searching the Circle", "Do You Know", "For You", "Play With Fire", "My Love & I", "Satisfied", and "Prelude" – plus a wild remake of "Somebody to Love"! 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

✨✧ 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

✨✧ 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

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

Sonny ClarkCool Struttin' (75th anniversary edition) ... LP
Blue Note, 1958. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.99
One of the most legendary albums on Blue Note – or maybe THE most legendary albums on Blue Note – a stunning session that shows what the label was capable of when it was really hitting on all burners – from the lineup to the music to the production – and even the classic cover art on the front! The album's a crowning achievement for pianist Sonny Clark – a player who'd already brought greatness to the world before the record, but really knocks it out of the park during the session – leading a razor sharp lineup that includes Art Farmer on trumpet, Jackie McLean on alto, Paul Chambers on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on drums – all coming together with some magic in the studio, crafting a sound that forever put Blue Note on the map! Tracks are long, open-ended, and almost effortlessly soulful – and titles include Clark's classics "Cool Struttin" and "Blue Minor", plus versions of "Sippin At Bells" and "Deep Night".

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

CortijoAnsonia Years – 1969 to 1971 ... LP
Ansonia/Vampi Soul (Spain), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $17.99
Some of the best work ever from Puerto Rican percussionist Rafael Cortijo Verdejo – sides recorded in New York for the Ansonia label, at a time when Cortijo's music was even more rootsy than it was a decade before! The material here marks a renewed sense of tradition in players of Cortijo's generation – almost a back-to-basics mode that was their answer to the hybrids of the late 60s – a style that often has Rafael focusing even more on the rhythms at the bottom of the tracks, and leaving behind some of the fuller orchestrations of the 50s. The mighty Kako joins in on percussion on a number of tracks too – and singers include Chivirico Davila and Johnny Vega – on titles that include "Chiviriquiton", "Tele Tele Ya", "La Madama", "Que Linda Te Ves", "Tu Y Tu Guarapo", "Quien Fuel El Primero", "Echando Un Pie", "Alegria Bomba Es", "Dorotea", "Dudando", and "El Negrito Bailador". Comes with great notes in Spanish and English, too! LP, Vinyl record album

Rene Costy with Willy AlbimoorRene Costy & His Orchestra – Chappell Mood Music Vol 26 ... LP
Chappell/Aartrud (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $44.99
A hell of a great sound library set from the Belgian scene of the 70s – one that features some mighty sweet arrangements from Willy Albimoor, who's best known for his work with the group Chakachas! The set isn't as funky or Latin as work by Chakachas, but definitely has a similar groovy vibe – and Willy's trademark way of mixing in bits of bossa, jazz, and other sweet styles – all in a great blend of keyboards, flute, fuzzy guitar, and some other wonderful touches! Think of the album as a less-Latin version of Chakachas, and you'll almost get things right – and of course our hat's off to Rene Costy too, for making the whole thing come together this nicely. Titles include "Easy To Be In Love", "Delirium", "Scrabble", "Bulles De Savon", "Go Boogie", "Langoroso", and "Barbecue Dance". LP, Vinyl record album

Patrick CowleyMuscle Up ... LP
Dark Entries, Late 70s. New Copy 2 LPs ... $20.99
Moody work from the legendary Patrick Cowley – all music originally composed for use in 70s porno films shot on the San Francisco scene – most of it in the years before Cowley took off in more techno-styled dancefloor modes! These tracks are all heavy on electronics, but the grooves are often somewhat gentle – mostly in modes that run from midtempo to spacey, and which clearly featured during the more languid erotic scenes of the movies – maybe moments when the action was heated, but also rapturously intense. And as such, the music has a very different vibe than the familiar funk and jazz you'd know from other porn films of the period (although there is one great funk number here) – and the use of electronics give most of these cuts a cool, spacey vibe – almost like Sky Records material from the German scene, or pre-cold wave electronics. Titles include "Deep Inside You", "5oz Of Funk", "Timelink", "Uhura", "Pigfoot", "Don't Ask", "Cat's Eye", and "Somebody To Love Tonight". LP, Vinyl record album
Also available Muscle Up ... CD 11.99
