✨✧ Roy AyersEverybody Loves The Sunshine (40th anniversary yellow vinyl pressing) ... LP
Polydor, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
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

Arnold Dreyblatt & The Orchestra Of Excited StringPropellers In Love ... LP
Hat Hut/Superior Viaduct, 1986. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
Beautiful sounds from Arnold Dreyblatt and his "excited strings" – an acoustic bass body that's refitted with a different string lineup, and mixed here with other instruments of a string-heavy nature! Yet the music is hardly the usual "with strings" sounds, nor any sort of American acoustic tradition – and instead follows in a direction inspired by the minimalists of the 70s – Glass, Reich, Riley, and others – as Dreyblatt works here with a quintet to create these beautifully flowing passages of notes and tones – almost like some of the larger compositions by Reich and Riley, but with a much more spontaneous combo vibe. Other instrumentation includes drums, wood block, modified piano, and violin – and titles include "Pedal Tone Dance", "Lucky Strike", "Odd & Even", "Harmonics", "Bowing", and "Propellers In Love".

Honeyboy EdwardsWorried Blues (180 gram pressing – with download) ... LP
Fat Possum, 1969/1971. New Copy ... $12.99 17.98
Rare work from the legendary Honeyboy Edwards – a blues guitarist who was a key force in helping the music make the transition to an electric mode in the 40s – but an artist whose talents were eclipsed by so many others he worked with at the time! This set's got a real back-to-basics vibe – Edwards captured in a spare setting, in a series of revival recordings done by Adelphi – with a focus on his vocals and guitar that take us right back to his early years working street corners and juke joints. Titles include "Bull Cow Blues 2", "Little Boy Blue", "Love Honeyboy Slow", "Don't Mistreat A Fool", "Howlin Wind", "Meet The Mornin Train", and "Hot Springs Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

Claudio Gizzi, Sandro Brugnolini, L Piccioni, & OtCommenti Musicali – Thrilling Tensione Terrore Vol 2 ... LP
Contempo (Italy), Early 80s. New Copy ... $14.99
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

Alessandro AlessandroniRomance & Drama ... LP
Coloursound Library/Transversales Disques (France), Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
A really unusual sound library session from Alessandro Alessandroni – quite different both from his regular work, and from what you might expect from the title! There's maybe more drama than romance here, but still in a very subtle way – as the tunes have this kind of descending, almost stepping structure – usually using a bit of guitar alongside strings, but with other compressed sounds that are almost impossible to figure out, yet create these beautiful painterly shapes in space! The music almost feels more like Sven Libaek at times, although has that warm quality that we've always loved in Alessandroni's soundtracks – and titles include "A Long Day", "First Approaches", "Dramatic Encounter", "Sad Farewell", "Epic", "Agitation", "Noble Feelings", "Love Letters", and "A Simple Souvenir".

Alvarius BWith A Beaker On The Burner & An Otter In The Oven Vol 2 – A Mark Twain August ... LP
Abduction, 2017. New Copy ... $19.99
Amazing sounds from Alvarius B – aka Alan Bishop, who you'll know from his long legacy of music as part of the Sun City Girls – but who's definitely blowing us away here as a solo artist on his own! The album's a triple-length set – and it's got this really unusual blend of elements that spin out over the extended space of the set – sounds that often just come from the interplay of acoustic and electric guitar, bass, and keyboards – but which often have all these exotic elements in the mix, and these compelling currents of magick that feel like they're echoing Kenneth Anger, Current 93, and a universe of other musical influences too. Most songs are these really compelling originals – but along the way, the project also references Ennio Morricone, Lee Hazlewood, Gene Clark, and other musical heroes of ours. Titles on this second part include "Mark Twain August", "Dark In My Heart", "Obelisk", "Locust Rain", "Fine Line", and "The Devil's Spine". LP, Vinyl record album

AntibalasWhere The Gods Are At Peace ... LP
Daptone, 2017. New Copy ... $14.99 17.98
Maybe the most searing album we've ever heard from Antibalas – a set that's completely on fire from the very first note, both musically and politically – and which burns with an intensity that seems to blow away all their previous music! Make no mistake, we've always loved these guys – but this time around, there's an urgency that really grabs us – maybe because of the political climate in which the set was recorded, or maybe just because these guys always keep growing and maturing, where so many other similar combos are just content to stick in the same territory. The lead vocals by Duke Amayo are incredible – with a righteous power that demands to be heard – and the horns are more creative and colorful than ever, with some fantastic solos on the album's very long tracks. And of course, the grooves are great – that blend of riffing guitars and percussion that Antibalas have updated from 70s Afro Funk – on titles that include the three-part "Tombstown" suite, plus "Hook & Crook" and "Gold Rush".

Astral Dimension (Fabio Fabor)Galassia M81 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Edizioni Minstrel/Spettro (Italy), 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
Lost sound library genius from Fabio Fabor – working here under the name of The Astral Dimension – which is a very good tag for the sound on the set! Although recorded in 1981, the record has all the warmth of some of Fabor's 70s material – lots of swirling, spacey keyboards – some in these streams of color that are really beautiful, and make you feel like you're taking a trip through the stars, with everything slowing down at warp speed – others in more spare, linear passages that evoke a slightly different mood, and balance things out nicely. The whole thing almost feels like a later update of the old "trip to space" genre for mood music records – and titles include "Antares", "Via Lattea", "Nebulosa", "Beta 700", "Stella Nova", "Monte Palomar", "Eclisse", and "Saturno".

Baba YagaCollage ... LP
Cycle/Wah Wah (Spain), 1974. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $18.99
A very different album than the first Baba Yaga set – much more freewheeling and tripped-out – and done as an incredible duet between keyboardist Ingo Werner and percussionist Nemat Darman! The album features two side-long tracks – "Mokscha" and "Wadi" – both of which almost feel like long improvisations inspired by Indian music on side one, and taken in a more fusion-oriented direction on side two! Darman plays santur, sitar, vibes, drums, cymbals, gongs, and other percussion – and Werner plays Fender Rhodes, clavinet, and some other cool keyboards too! No vocals – just two long instrumental jams! LP, Vinyl record album

Luis BacalovSummertime Killer (180 gram colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Beatball (South Korea), 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $26.99
One of the most enigmatic soundtracks we've ever heard from Luis Bacalov – a set that's still as groovy as his work from the 60s, but with a lot more 70s rock touches overall! These elements come through in some of the English language vocals at the start, but then slide into lighter variations on some of the more instrumental tracks – which move between sweet keyboards, flute lines, spare percussion, and a few more guitar-based moments! But there's also quite a sense of variety in the music – as the expanded reissue allows for a number of additional material that further expand past the few core themes, to some moodier, darker moments. Titles include "Like A Play", "Run & Run", "The Summertime Killer", "Lisboa's Tram", and "The House On The Lake". 21 tracks in all! LP, Vinyl record album

BaroquesBaroques (mono colored vinyl pressing) (2017 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Chess/Sundazed, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
One of the more unusual albums issued on the legendary Chess Records label in the 60s – not the usual jazz, blues, or soul the imprint was known for – but a full length set by a pretty raw combo from the Milwaukee scene! The Baroques are maybe more garagey than their name might imply – with a searing, gritty sound that verges into psych at times – but which still keeps things tight, short, and nicely focused. The group does feature some electric harpsichord in a few spots – although not as much as The Left Banke – and titles include "Mary Jane", "Iowa A Girl's Name", "In Silver Light", "Purple Day", "Boop", "Love In A Circle", "Bicycle", "There's Nothing Left To Do But Cry", and the pretty great-titled "Musical Tribute To The Oscar Mayer Weiner Wagon".

Robbie BashoLive In Forli – Italy 1982 ... LP
ESP, New Copy ... About February 23, 2018
A breathtakingly beautiful recording of the legendary Robbie Basho – and a much-needed addition to his too-small catalog of albums! Make no mistake, Basho has given us some key records over the years – but his genius was so deep, and his life was so short, it always feels like there needs to be more added to the mix – which is why this album is so important. The set captures Basho at a time when he was working in relative obscurity, but maybe even more amazing than on his early years recording for Takoma Records – a more sophisticated guitar player, working with mindblowing dexterity, while still also following his own spirit in sound – a mix of underground American acoustic modes, with influences from Indian music and classical guitar – yet delivered with a personal style that's completely his own. Robbie vocalizes a bit, but the main focus is on his guitar – and the set includes a number of quite long tracks, and also some spoken introductions by Basho for more tunes, which are very illuminating too. Titles include "California Raga", "German Chocolate Cake", "Redwood Ramble", "Song Of The Stallion", "Grail & The Lotus", "Cathedral Et Fleur De Lis", and "Pavan India". LP, Vinyl record album

BBC Radiophonic WorkshopSoundhouse (180 gram yellow vinyl pressing) ... LP
BBC/Silva Screen, 1983. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99 29.99
Weird and wonderful sounds from one of the coolest spots in the universe – the legendary BBC Radiophonic Workshop, home to a mix of surprisingly groovy and experimental electronic music! This album was issued on the 25th anniversary of the sonic institution – and it features a strong mix of older analogue styles with some more 80s-oriented electronics – yet still with all the depth you'd expect from the Radiophonic Workshop during its classic years! These aren't tinny slasher keyboards, or electro pop programs – and instead, the music here is as thoughtful and compelling as the sounds created during the Delia Derbyshire generation – but are handled by artists who include Peter Howell, Paddy Kingsland, Dick Mills, Jonathan Gibbs, Elizabeth Parker, and Malcolm Clarke. Titles include "Mainstream", "Radiophonic Rock", "Computers In The Real World", "Rallyman", "Seascape", "Land & People", "Houdini's Magic Box", "Ghost In The Water", "Planet Earth", and "Catch The Wind".

Big Mean Sound MachineRunnin For The Ghost (with bonus download) ... LP
Peace & Rhythm, 2017. New Copy ... $13.99
These guys aren't mean at all – as their groove is so warm and rhythmically compelling, they feel pretty darn friendly right from the very first note! The music's a compelling hybrid of Latin, African, and other rhythmic modes – served up with a freshness that's a nice change from some of the straighter Afro Funk combos around – who often just seem to be rehashing a 70s vibe. Instead, these guys are really trying to find their own sound – sometimes by using a bit of dub or other effects – but never in a way that's overdone, or gets in the way of the acoustic musical elements at their roots. All tracks are instrumental, and were performed live for the recording – and titles include "Return Of The March", "Touring Van", "Another Grain Of Sand", "Runnin For The Ghost", "Seeing The Bigger Picture", and "Van Chatter".

Black IvoryBlack Ivory Anthology ... LP
Playback, 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2 LPs ... $22.99 24.98
Amazing music from one of the coolest vocal groups of the 70s – a hip New York trio who never hit the heights of the Jackson 5 or Chi-Lites, but who are maybe even more important to our ears overall! Black Ivory started young – with a harmony style that was incredible for their age, and which was perfect for both funky numbers and late nite ballads, in a way that was similar to The Whatnauts – and as the 70s moved on, they also grew up and found a style that worked well for clubbier material – which they crafted in a way that was surprisingly strong, and far different from any of the disco cliches of the period. Even in the early 80s, they could hang around the farther reaches of the soul scene – keeping an indie harmony vibe strong when others were losing steam. All the best aspects of the group's sound are collected here – in an overstuffed, double-length package that includes the cuts "Walking Downtown", "Big Apple Rock", "Surrender", "I Keep Asking Questions", "Just Leave Me Some", "Wishful Thinking", "You & I", "Don't Turn Around", "Find The One Who Loves You", "I'll Find A Way", "Spinning Around", "We Made It", "Love Won't You Stay", "Mainline", "White Wind", and "You Are My Lover". LP features the track "What Goes Around". LP, Vinyl record album

John CarpenterAnthology – Movie Themes 1974 to 1998 ... LP
Sacred Bones, 2017. New Copy ... $16.99
John Carpenter takes his classic film themes, and does them one better – by working here with his Lost Themes Band in some wonderful new versions of these famous tunes! The music is still very heavy on that stark guitar and keyboard style that Carpenter virtually invented in the late 70s – but there's also this flowing, unified vibe throughout – as the band do a great job of re-exploring this music, in a way that ties together all the different cinematic moments, and makes them feel like one very cohesive album! The project's way better than other recent concert of live album's of this nature – and from other contemporary John Carpenter projects, it's clear that the maestro is still very much alive and well. Titles include "The Fog","Prince Of Darkness", "Halloween", "Porkchop", "Starman", "Dark Star", "Christine", "In The Mouth Of Madness", "Escape From New York", and "Assault On Precinct 13".

Michael Cosmic/Phill Musra GroupPeace In The World/Creator Spaces (with bonus download) ... LP
Cosmic/Now Again, 1974. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
An amazing package – a pair of rare avant jazz albums, presented here together! The first album is Peace In The World – maybe the only album issued under the name of Michael Cosmic – but a set that's part of a key legacy with his brother, reedman Phill Musra! The set has Cosmic in very heady territory – sounds that come from his young tenure in the AACM, his brief time with Cecil Taylor, and his budding reputation on the 70s Boston scene – where the set was recorded, and almost stands as a precursor to the rich legacy of improvisational jazz that would emerge on the New England scene for decades to come! Tracks are long and very free, but have spiritual currents too – and Cosmic is mostly on piano, with Musra on soprano sax and tenor, Leonard Brown on soprano and tenor, John Jamyll Jones on bass, Huseyin Ertunc on drums, and Eric Jackson on percussion. Titles include "We Love You Malcolm X", "Peace In The World", "Sapce On Space", and "Arabia". Next is the related album Creator Spaces, by Phill Musra – recorded at the time when he was part of the very underground Boston avant scene – a world that had a slightly different vibe than music coming from Chicago, Detroit, or New York! The album's got a spiritual avant bent – soulful at the core, with lots of references to outer space as well – and an approach that feels a lot like a classic Saturn Records session by Sun Ra, both in sound and spirit! Musra plays reeds, chimes, and percussion – and the group features some incredible sax work by Michael Cosmic, who also plays a bit of organ, again in a tripped-out, Ra-type way. Huseyin Ertunc plays percussion – very free and loose, in ways that are a great balance to the more angular lines of the reeds – and tracks include "The Creator Is So Far Out", "The Creator Spaces", "Egypt", and "Arabia".

Wolfgang DaunerRischkas Soul ... LP
Brain/Long Hair (Germany), 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $25.99
A fantastic album from German keyboard giant Wolfgang Dauner – and maybe one of the few to perfectly balance both his soul jazz roots and his later trippier style! The music here is very groovy – much more in the mode of MPS Records electric jazz sets of the time than you'd guess from the album's placement on Brain Records – and the lineup features incredible work from Sigi Schwab on guitar – who can be open and spacious at some points, but then really jam with a groove at others! Likewise, the bassist Eberhard Weber can provide a lot of propulsion when needed, but also lay back and bow his cello in a more ECM-like way – and the album's two drummers, Fred Braceful and Roland Wittich, both show an equally deft ability to change up the groove! The real superstar, though, is the mighty Dauner – who plays piano, organ, and keyboards, plus a sweet bit of flute too – on tracks that include "Reading Machine", "Kamasutram", "Blues Far Out", "Flute Woman", and a freaky fuzzy take on Cannonball Adderley's "Jive Samba".

✨✧ Silvano D'AuriaSortilegio (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1974. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $36.99
Maybe the only soundtrack we've ever seen from Silvano D'Auria – but a hell of a set that stands right up there with the best of his contemporaries on the early 70s Italian scene! The music is funky at times, slinky at others, and completely sex-drenched throughout – served up with loads of Hammond and Fender Rhodes from the composer, plus sweet guitar that can easily shift between fuzzy and smooth – and just the right kind of basslines and drum bits to support the wonderful electric vibe of the music. The score's a gem from the time before Italian keyboards got too cold or too frenetic – and overall, the set still holds onto some great funky undercurrents that would disappear a few years later. Never issued on record before, that we're aware of – and with a total of 14 tracks in all! LP, Vinyl record album
(Great heavy, limited pressing!)
