A treasure trove of lost work from the UK scene of the 60s – some of it fuzzy and freaky, and a fair bit of it funky too! Singer Tim Andrews really had a great way of pairing up with just the right musicians for a groove – as some of the tracks here mix psych impulses with mod-styled ... (Rock) read moreCD
One of the most creative albums ever from UK composer Neil Ardley – and that's saying a lot, given the complexity of his other work!

Killer work from the late 50's by Chet! Although Baker's trumpet playing in the early part of the decade became known as one of the trademark "cool" sounds of the west coast, he started to move towards a sound that was a lot more hardbop at the end of the decade – as you'll hear on ...

One of the lesser known John Barry soundtracks, to one of the lesser known Bond films – but a nice one! The record has a beautiful easy quality that's a bit different from some of Barry's other work, and which allies it a bit more with the Sound Gallery/Sound Spectrum sound of the late 60s. ...

Maybe our favorite Beatles album ever – a key set that bridges the catchiness of the early years and the sharper ideas of later albums – with a slightly sinister undercurrent that really keeps things fresh! The album's got some great early psych in spots, offset with wonderfully mature ... (Rock) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

A pretty sweet batch of early 90s R&B from Benet – which is the brother and sister duo of Eric and Lisa Benet – a couple years before Eric would conquer the charts as a solo act! It's a nice little record that's warm and good-natured, and produced with a bright and smooth, but not ... (Soul) read moreCD
An obscure Jazz Messengers session – but a great one!

An incredible album from Lo Borges – one of the best singer/songwriters on the Brazilian scene of the 70s!

A holy grail of bossa nova!

A mega-hit for David Bowie – and an album that reduced some of the complexity of previous efforts, yet still managed to hold onto all that was great!

Mostly mellow vocals from Freddy Cole – brother of Nat, but a singer who opened up nicely during the late 60s and 1970s.

An excellent soundtrack from Georges Delerue – with some nice funky bits! Delerue's work isn't always the greatest, and we'll be the first to admit that he can veer towards the romantic a bit too much in his scoring.

A gem of a record – one we wouldn't part with for anything!

Great early work from Joao Gilberto – pulled from his earlier Odeon sides, and featuring many tracks that never got a proper issue in the US! As the title points out, the set's a bunch of Jobim tracks – and titles include "Desafinado", "Discussao", "So Em Teus ... (Brazil) read moreCD
Strange and wonderful work from one of our favorite Brazilian artists – and a set that's put together with all the best complications of Egberto Gismonti's early years!

Lots of warm and jazzy keyboards on this one – handled in a way that mostly doesn't suppress the charm and sincerity of Luiz vocals, although we will admit that a few tracks get a bit out of hand. Most of the record, though, has Luiz working in a subtler style – a bit jazzier, a bit ... (Brazil) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
