AfterglowAfterglow (180 gram pressing – with bonus tracks) ... LP
Golden State/Beat Rocket, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99 24.99
Dreamy sounds from Afterglow – a group who mix strong harmony vocals with a slightly trippy sound! These guys are on the farther edges of the Sunshine Pop universe – partly because they never had a hit, partly because some of these songs have a slightly rootsy vibe, and partly because things get slightly offbeat at a few points! Yet the appeal of their vocals is undeniable – sometimes almost with a jazzy current that's an nice contrast to the garagey organ in the mix – and with the kind of quality that would have really blossomed, had these guys gotten the chance to record in the same sort of soft rock setting as groups like America or Three Dog Night. Titles include "Love", "Riding Home Again", "Meadowland Of Love", "Morning", "Dream Away", "Afternoon", "Mend This Heart Of Mine", and "Susie's Gone". LP features four alternate bonus tracks too!

Butch Engle & The StyxNo Matter What You Say – The Best Of Butch Engle & The Styx (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Beat Rocket, Mid 60s. New Copy ... $13.99 24.99
Surprisingly strong work from a Bay Area group who never managed to crack the big time back in the day – then hung up their guitars at a time when most of their contemporaries were really starting to blossom! Maybe the issue was that Butch Engel & The Styx had experience going back to the start of the 60s – moving through familiar guitar-based modes for the first part of the decade, before really hitting their stride with the wonderful sounds on this record – done partly in collaboration with Beau Brummel Ron Elliott, who helped produced and lent them some songs – but also with this increasingly heartfelt, freewheeling quality that could have put them at the height of the SF scene, had they kept going. The set features rare singles issued on the Golden State, Loma, MEA, and Onyx labels – plus some excellent unreleased tracks too – titles that include "I Call Her Name", "Left Hand Girl", "Hey I'm Lost", "Going Home", "I Like Her", "Puppetmaster", "If You Believe", "Tell Me Please", and "She Is Love".

Electro Harmonix Work BandState Of The Art Electronic Devices ... LP
Electro Harmonix, 1977. Very Good+ ... $29.99
A pretty great album of tripped-out funky jazz and instrumental tunes – played with a range of odd instruments (Golden Throat, universal pedal, ring modulator, phase shifter) and studio effects, going for an approach that shows the wilder sounds of the instruments, while still grooving in a fairly straight mainstream mode. Some tracks are a bit smooth – but the longer ones get nicely messed up, with an almost Herbie-like approach to the keyboard and synth work. Titles include "I Am Not A Synthesizer", "2-4-5", "Fame & Fortune", and "EM". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear and some seam splitting.)

Capitol (Czech Republic), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 6CD ... $39.99 49.99
Overlooked later work from America – not the huge AM radio hits from the time when the group was a trio, and produced by George Martin – but instead, material from a point when they'd trimmed down to a duo, and really found a great way to move their music forward! The approach here still has all the harmonic interplay of before, and as the albums move on, older AOR modes get shed for some slightly more contemporary styles – but still with that kind of golden glow that always made the America approach a lot stronger than most of their contemporaries! Songs are nicely understated, as is the production – and if, like us, you're a fan of the group with a love that goes way deeper than the hits, then you'll find plenty to love here. The package features six full albums, each in original album-styled sleeves – with the releases Silent Letter, Alibi, View From The Ground, Your Move, Perspective, and In Concert. CD

KassinRelax ... CD
Luaka Bop, 2018. New Copy ... $9.99 13.99
We admire the hell out of Kassin, but it's hard to imagine that we'd relax when faced with a new record of his – as we always pay fervent attention to everything he ever does! And this time around, that attention is rewarded even more than usual – as the musician and studio genius emerges a bit more from the background than usual – finally putting his face on the cover (sort of!), and really showing off his talents as both a singer and songwriter! Yet as with all of Kassin's other work – including his famous collaborations with Domenico and Moreno Veloso, his time in Orquesta Imperial, and his projects with bigger names in Brazilian music – there's always this understated quality that makes the whole thing even more charming than if Kassin was overstating his talents. Kassin is one of the few contemporary Brazilian artists to really live up to the genius of the golden years that gave us talents like Marcos Valle, Edu Lobo, or Caetano Veloso – and his sense of songwriting, presentation, and overall structure here is wonderful – making the album an instant classic in Brazilian music. Titles include "Seria O Donut", "Comprimidos Demais", "Estricnina", "Momento De Clareza", "O Anestesista", "Su Sugestao", "Enquanto Desaba O Mundo", and "As Coisa Que Nos Nao Fizemos". CD

✨✧ Budos BandBudos Band III (includes bonus download) ... LP
Daptone, 2010. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great third album from Staten Island instrumental funk titans The Budos Band – who've brought eclectic inspiration all along and have always colored from a much broader palette of styles than most of their peers – going even further this time out and delivering their best yet! The Daptone House Of Soul blueprint is a big part of the recipe, as it should be. Classic funky soul grit holds it all together and each cut has an unshakable groove, but with that in full effect, the group is free to explore. The Budos horns are as impeccable and communicative as ever, with brass that ranges from classic stateside funk and Afro influences. The percussion (bongos, clave, cowbell and more) is just as broadly thought out and tightly delivered, snakey bass lines, flute and the sometimes secret weapon on Budos Band III, the electric organ – which brings a bit of a garage psych/funk rock vibe. Truly exceptional work from the one of the best bands of their generation! Includes "Rite Of The Ancients", "Black Venom", "River Serpentine", "Unbroken, Unshaven", "Nature's Wrath", "Golden Dune's", "Budo's Dirge", "Raja Haje", "Crimson Skies", "Mark Of The Unnamed" and "Reppirt Yad" (a funked up Lennon/McCartney cover...read it backwards, kids). LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Kenny Drew TrioAfternoon In Europe (French pressing) ... LP
Baystate (Japan), 1980. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
The title's a tribute to the great John Lewis – and although Kenny Drew definitely plays with a Lewis-like sense of space on the set, there's a warmth to the record that's pure Kenny all the way! The record stands strongly amidst some of the great Drew sessions for Baystate – mature work that has Drew bringing in a great mix of modern tones and deeper feelings – working with a perfectly subtle rhythm section that really matches his groove! Players include Niels-Henning Oersted-Pedersen on bass and Ed Thigpen on drums – and titles include the Lewis numbers "Afternoon In Paris" and "Golden Striker", plus "The Quiet Cathedral", "Ach Varmeland Du Skona", and "Midnight Sun". LP, Vinyl record album
