Robbie BashoVenus In Cancer ... LP
Blue Thumb/Traffic, 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $21.99 24.98
One of the wildest albums ever from the great Robbie Basho – as you might guess from the cover! Basho first made waves with his solo guitar work (and a bit of vocalizations) for the Takoma label, during the early years of John Fahey – but as the 60s ended, Robbie had more of a ...

Big Maybelle's got a new bag – and we like it! This tasty set was cut for the tiny Rojac label in between Maybelle's earlier years at Savoy and later albums on Brunswick – and it's got a swinging, 60s mod sort of style that's pretty darn groovy, baby!

Rojac/Traffic, 1967. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great set that may well be Big Maybelle's best record ever – really rare work that's quite different than her famous work of the 50s!

Black IceI Judge The Funk ... CD
Transcontinent/Traffic, 1979. New Copy ... $6.99 15.98
A lost bit of ensemble funk from the end of the 70s – served up in a mix of bass-heavy club and boogie styles! The group have a rolling groove that's a bit like some of the work by Instant Funk or other clubby funk acts – but the overall feel is a bit tighter and more small group-orient ...

One of the funkiest blacksploitation soundtracks of the 70s – a rare indie gem from Nat Dove & The Devils!

Just-Ice wasn't actually part of the old school – although to some, the 1986 release might seem pretty darn close – but he definitely does a good job here of keeping things nice and clean on his classic debut!
