Ray Barretto just before the Latin Soul era – working in the excellent style he used on his Charanga Moderna album – a choppy groove that has plenty of weird twists and turns – always rhythmic, and always plenty darn soulful! The instrumentation here is a mix of small combo jazz ... (Latin) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

One of our favorite Ray Barretto albums of the 60s – a real gem from the pre-Latin Soul years! The album's a clear attempt to cash in on the cash in on the James Bond craze of the time – issued by United Artists, who were releasing the Bond films, but also had Ray under contract during ...

The historic album by Can – capping off their classic early 70s trilogy that includes Tago Mago and Ege Bamyasi – and the last one with Damo Suzuki in the line up! While very similar to Ege Bamyasi, Future Days takes a step away from their more experimental sounds and has more of the ... (Rock) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
This is a repackaged version of an album that was originally issued under Cecil Taylor's name, under the title Hard Drive (and later Stereo Drive, or something like that). The record brings together two of the late 50's most promising modernists – Cecil Taylor and John Coltrane – in a ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Rarely are such "meeting of the minds" sessions worth any fuss at all – but in this case, the masterful talents of the players turn what should be a snoozy "common denominator" session into a modernist classic that still crackles with excitement after all these years!

Hawkwind in their early live atmoshere – pivotal space rock from the progenitors of that scene, and a record that pretty much outdoes their studio albums to this point – weird, sci fi soundscapes and atomspherics floating over more straight forward, lumbering rock & roll as well as ...

An excellent Quincy Jones score that stands head and shoulders above the soundtrack to the first film in this series, In The Heat Of The Night. Q is in fine fine form with this material – adding in a lot more funk than before, to fit the uptown theme of the film. There's lots of nice jazzy ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A funky classic from Galt MacDermot! The record is Galt's score for the blacksploitation film that starred Godfrey Cambridge and Raymond St Jacques – and it's a mix of vocal and instrumental tunes that takes off from the sound of his late 60s work. Melba Moore sings on a few cuts – ... (Soundtracks) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Ocho 3 ... LP United Artists, 1974. New Copy (reissue)...
The killer 3rd album by this legendary Latin group from the early 70s! The set's a very tasty batch of Latin jazz, Latin funk, and a few straighter Latin cuts – and it's possibly their toughest album to find in the original. The group gets hot and heavy on a Latin version of James Brown's ... (Latin) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A wonderful album from Popol Vuh – a set based on their initial soundtrack material for the Werner Herzog film of the same name, but one that also stretches out in a lot of new directions, too – with longer songs that really open up, although always strongly in the spirit of the ...

The cover here features Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden, and the album draws inspiration from Old Testament sources – but the overall expression is very strongly in the best post-prog modes of early Popol Vuh – already taking layered sounds past jamming origins, into much headier ...

A beautiful record that shows why Popul Vuh were unlike most of their prog contemporaries in the 70s – as the set's got this spacious, cosmic style that's very unique – almost pointing the way towards a new age to follow, but without any new age drippiness at all! Instead, these guys ... (Rock) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

A fantastic record that's truly one of Tito Rodriguez's best from the 60s – a very jazzy affair, and one that breaks the pattern of most of his other albums of the time! As the title implies, Tito's working here live at Birdland nightclub – with a jazz-based lineup to match the setting ... (Latin) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of the best blacksploitation soundtracks of the early 70's – not only for the great title cut by Bobby Womack, "Across 110th Street", but for the excellent hard-hitting instrumentals by J.J. Johnson, which are perfectly in the groove of the blacksploitation generation! Lots of ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Bobby Womack at the height of his powers – perfectly balancing southern soul roots and 70s soul polish – with an amazing sound that was unlike anyone else at the time! The set was recorded at Muscle Shoals, but has a quality that goes way beyond any of the standard modes from the ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
