✨✧ 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".

✨✧ Nate MorganJourney Into Nigritia (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Nimbus, 1983. New Copy (reissue)... $44.99
A lost spiritual jazz classic from pianist Nate Morgan – maybe the musician's best-remembered moment, and for good reason too! The set's got this soaring, spiritual vibe that's much more early 70s than you'd guess from the date of recording – a post-Coltrane spirit with lots of modal energy in the rhythms, carved out by Nate in these bold, dark lines on piano – and topped with some excellent work on alto sax from the great Dadisi Komolate! Both players were key figures in the under-documented LA scene of this period – and work together to make tremendous sounds on this album – on titles that include "He Left Us A Song", "Journey Into Nigritia", "Morning Prayer", "Mother", and "Study in CT". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited to 250 copies! Beautiful pressing – with heavy vinyl and cover, and maybe even nicer than the original!)

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".

Johan Lindstrom SeptettMusic For Empty Halls ... LP
Moserobie (Sweden), 2018. New Copy Gatefold ... $22.99
A rich vision in sound from Johan Lindstrom – not just a guitarist, but a hell of a composer too – working here with an all-star group that features other great players on the Moserobie label! Yet despite that connection, the vibe here is very different than other Moserobie music – uniquely Lindstrom's own, with these sounds that are not only vivid in themselves, but which also draw a lot from the performance – handled by players who include Jesper Nordenstrom on piano and organ, Jonas Kullhammar on saxes, Per Texas Johansson on tenor and bass clarinet, Torbjorn Zetterberg on bass, Mats Aleklint on trombone, and Konrad Agnas on drums. There's a few surprises along the way – including a bit of piano effects from Lindstrom on one track, and guest voices and strings on another – and the whole album has this beautifully unified feel, and rich textures of colors – maybe in the same spirit as some of the earlier large ensemble projects from Charlie Haden. Titles include "Dance Of The Marble Hearts", "Serengeti", "Music For Empty Halls", "The Assent", "Hymn", and "Sleepless Lapsteels". LP, Vinyl record album
Also available Music For Empty Halls ... CD 16.99

✨✧ VariousGao Rap – Hip Hop From Northern Mali ... LP
Sahel Sounds, 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The first-time vinyl appearance of a number of contemporary hip hop tracks from Mali – all music that's existed only in the form of MP3 files before this release – which does a great job of pulling together disparate strands to document this scene! From what we can tell, none of the lyrics are in English – which maybe even makes the whole thing more captivating from a global perspective, if not with the usual appeal of American lyricists – and instead of beats or samples, many of these tracks seem to have instrumental passages on keyboards, plus sung vocal chorus bits – which again may well tie the whole thing to more familiar Mali music than hip hop. Titles include "Mon Son" by Fasso Madol, "Priate" by Adiobi with Baba Konate, "Djarabi" by Baba Konate with Filly, "Je Sui Vane De Toi" by Annane Sy, "Hey Koy" by Pheno S, and "He Ni Bonbay" by Askia Hamey. Includes an insert with notes, too! LP, Vinyl record album

Alessandro Alessandroni, Marco Di Marco, Franco TaLa Natura E L'Uomo ... LP
Nereide/Intervallo (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
A beautiful little record, and one that's got way more heart and soul to offer than you might expect from the rather understated packaging – which hides an album that's full of sparkling 70s keyboard magic! The music here is by a mix of Italian soundtrack and jazz talents – the latter of whom bring some sounds that are especially groovy, served up on both acoustic piano and lots of sweet electric keyboards! The great Marco Di Marco contributes four numbers – including two takes on "Long Drink", "Prima Giochi", and the tune "Ivana" – a nice bossa nova track. Other titles include "Aria Aperta" by Franco Tonani, "Venus" and "Bassa Marea" by Alessandro Alessancroni, "Pescatori" by Kema, and "Protozoi" by Amedeo Tommasi. LP, Vinyl record album

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

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". 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

Robbie BashoGrail & The Lotus ... LP
Takoma, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
Mindblowing early work from Robbie Basho – maybe one of the best Takoma albums of the 60s – and that's saying a lot, given that the label also issued important music from John Fahey! Yet on this set, Basho's as revelatory as Fahey at his best – but in a completely different way – more informed by Eastern thought than American roots, yet able to spin out his ideas on these completely hypnotic acoustic guitar passages that are still as mesmerizing all these many years later as they were when recorded in Berkley studios in 1966. Titles include "Oriental Love Song", "The Dharma Prince", "The Grail& The Lotus", "Golden Shamrock", and "Street Dakini". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited to 500 copies.)

Robbie BashoLive In Forli – Italy 1982 ... LP
ESP, 1982. New Copy ... $23.99
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

Franco BattiatoPollution ... LP
Superior Viaduct, 1972. New Copy Gatefold ... $23.99
A really full-on early set from Franco Battiato – a set that's maybe halfway between some of his more avant compositions and some of the modes of the Italian prog scene at the time! The album's a concept one, based on the growing pollution of the planet – in a mode that's maybe similar to Earth Rot, by David Axelrod – and like that set, Battiato mixes together unusual sounds and ideas with some more straightforward rockish passages. Battiato works with a small group of musicians – and while guitar steps to the lead at some points, others very much more abstract sounds and forms. Titles include "Il Silenzio Del Rumore", "31 Dicembre 1999 – Ore 9", "Beta", "Plancton", "Pollution", and "Areknames". 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".

Beat Konducta (Madlib)Beat Konducta Vol 3 – Beat Konducta In India ... LP
Stones Throw, 2007. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
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".

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

✨✧ Braen's MachineTemi Ritmici E Dinamici (with bonus CD) ... LP
Liuto/Schema (Italy), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
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

✨✧ 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".

WRWTFWW (Switzerland), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy Gatefold ... $26.99
Weird and wild sounds from the equally weird and wild French animated series at the end of the 60s – served up here by a classically-trained musician who also had a lot of experience with electro-acoustic sounds at the GRM studios! The music here is a dark mix of familiar elements – with use of cello, violin, clarinet, flute, bass, and drums – but often at a level that feels more electric than acoustic – mixed with keyboards and some guitar, yet also clearly processed a lot as part of the production! Away from the cartoon, the music feels very spooky and odd – really more in a Pierre Henry mode than you might expect, although a bit playful from time to time. Titles include "Theme Gibi Classique", "Cosmogol 999 Carburant De La Fusee Gibi", "Ambiance Nouilles", "Guerre Musicale", "La Planete A Poissons", "Faux Depart", "Fuite Des Shadoks", "La Machine A Pomper Dite Cosmopompe", and "Les Humeurs Geophysiques De La Plante Shadok".

Norman ConnorsLove From The Sun (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Buddah/Pure Pleasure (UK), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... About May 1, 2018
A spiritual jazz masterpiece from drummer Norman Connors – one of those unique albums he cut before moving into soul music – done at a level that rivals the early 70s genius on labels like Strata East or Impulse Records! Connors worked with many contemporaries on those labels, and gets a good degree of help from them here, too – in a massive lineup that includes Eddie Henderson on trumpet, Herbie Hancock on keyboards, Gary Bartz on alto, Carlos Garnett on tenor, Buster Williams on bass, Bill Summers on drums, and even Dee Dee Bridgewater on a bit of vocals too! With a lineup like that, it would be easy to lay back and just do nothing – but you can really hear Connors' musical vision taking the lead – that warmly soulful approach that was there right from the start, given some great focus here by producer Skip Drinkwater. Tracks are all long, and free-flowing – a bit out at times, but always returning to the modal pulse of Connors' soulful rhythms. Titles include "Carlos II", "Kumakucha", "Holy Waters", "Revelation", and "Love From The Sun". LP, Vinyl record album
