SandDalston Shroud ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), 2006. Near Mint- 2LP ... $6.99
Kinetic, (mostly) instrumental art rock from Sand – effects laden, noirish noise that's unlike anything else on Soul Jazz – and quite compelling! Sand claims an influence from legendary Russian filmmaker Andrei Tarkovksy on the Dalston Shroud – and there's an angular remoteness in the jagged rhythms, caustic guitar, vocal and percussion effects, electronics and occasion horn blasts that really demonstrates that mood. The sound is post noise rock and pretty heavy, kind of in the way of PIL circa Metal Box in a moody sense. A strong set of with a cohesive sound! Tracks include "Kendoki", "Doctor Crop", "The Dalston Shroud", "Stick Eyed Bug Man", "Lal K", "Light Bender", "Arson", "Intersex", "Bearded Angel" and "Summer Lightening (Pt 1)".

Hampshire & FoatGalaxies Like Grains Of Sand ... CD
Athens Of The North (UK), 2017. New Copy ... $13.99
Spacey sounds from the dream team of Warren Hampshire and Greg Foat – a set that feels a bit like music that Foat previously recorded under his own name, but which also has a more spiritual sound overall! Hampshire plays guitar and auto harp, and Foat plays Fender Rhodes, vibes, and other keyboards – but those instruments are just part of the sound here – as there's also some added strings, tenor, and other elements from time to time – inflecting the music with a visionary quality that reminds us of some of the more freethinking records coming out in the early 70s – especially the kind of small label sets that were years ahead of their time, and only finally getting their due all these many years later. The presentation of the package echoes the style of older Michael Garrick material on the UK Argo Records – and there's definitely a depth here to live up to that spirit, but also a warmer vibe overall. Titles include "How The Nights Can Fly", "Lullaby", "The Solar Winds", "A Long Way Home", and "All Washed Up". CD

VariousSand & Steel – The Classic Sound Of Jamaican Steel Drums ... CD
Trojan (UK), 1950s/1960s/1970s. Used 2CD ... $12.99
We're guessing you're pretty excited about the prospect of percussive reggae and Jamaican R&B played out on rippling waves of steel drums, but this Caribbean steel drum bonanza isn't exactly going to satisfy your funky reggae steel drum jones. More in the vein of some of the ethnographic documents, this set showcases Jamaicans rocking the steel pans in a more traditional style. The first disc features six tracks each from the Steel Band Of The University Of The West Indies, the West India Regiment Steel Band, the Hell's Gate Steel Band and the Wirl All Star Steel Band, while disc 2 features a dozen numbers by the Rising Sun Steel Band and ten by the BWIA Sunset Steel Band. Includes "Mambo Negro", "Tropical Merengue", "Zambei", "Yellow Bird", "Perfidia", "Mitti Magita", "Blowing In The Wind", "Big Bamboo", "Island In The Sun", "Enjoy Yourself", "I Must Be Dreaming", "Nobody's Business", "Theme From Love Story", "To Sir With Love", "Let It Be" and more.

✨✧ Stanley ClarkeRocks Pebbles & Sand ... LP
Epic, 1980. Used ... Out Of Stock
Killer work from Stanley Clarke – a set to start off the 80s, but still very much in that unique blend of jazz, rock, and soul he forged so well in the 70s! The set begins with really heavy drums and bass – nicely propelled, but never too strong or too jamming – a great balance that really sets the pace well for the record as Clarke and the combo pulsate through a range of nice little numbers – often linked with a cool motorcycle sound effect! There's a few 80s touches, mostly in the keyboards, but these are never too modern – and all used very nicely. Titles include the extended "Story Of A Man & A Woman" suite – plus "Danger Street", "All Hell Broke Loose", "Rocks Pebbles & Sand", and "Underestimation". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousSon Of A Gun & More – From The Lee Hazlewood Songbook ... CD
Ace (UK), 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the most comprehensive sets we've ever seen to look at the legacy of the legendary Lee Hazlewood – and one of the few to focus on the impact he's had on the 21st Century! Lee's songs have become the stuff of legend over the years – not just his own recordings, but classic tracks sung by the Sinatra family members, Dean Martin, and countless others – who are usually features on similar sets under the Hazlewood banner. But this package goes those one better – and looks mostly at material from the past 20 years – plus a few older songs – showing that, if anything, the present century has given Lee's music even more power than ever in the hands of diverse talents like these. As with more "vintage" sets from Ace Records, the presentation is great – a lot of tracks, and very detailed notes that really like the Hazelwood heritage to all this recent music. Titles include "A Cheat" by Jarvis Cocker & Richard Hawley, "Some Velvet Morning" by Primal Scream & Kate Moss, "First Street Blues" by Mick Harvey, "I'm Glad I Never" by Jesus & Mary Chain, "Sand" by Holly Golightly, "Look At That Woman" by Gallon Drunk, "You Turned My Head Around" by Dean & Britta, "I'd Rather Be Your Enemy" by Boyd Rice, "Summer Wine" by Ville Valo & Natalia Avelon, "Paris Summer" by Frances Ruffelle, "My Autumn's Done Come" by Mark Morriss, "No Train To Stockholm" by Dan Michaelson & The Coastguards, and "Long Black Train" by Thriftstore Masterpiece with Frank Black. Also includes vintage songs – "She Comes Running" by Waylon Jennings, "The Man Who Made An Angel Cry" by Loy Clingman, "Lady Bird" by Virgil Warner & Suzi Jane Hokom, and "Friday's Child" by Billie Dearborn.

Big Mean Sound MachineRunnin For The Ghost (with bonus download) ... LP
Peace & Rhythm, 2017. New Copy ... $13.99
These guys aren't mean at all – as their groove is so warm and rhythmically compelling, they feel pretty darn friendly right from the very first note! The music's a compelling hybrid of Latin, African, and other rhythmic modes – served up with a freshness that's a nice change from some of the straighter Afro Funk combos around – who often just seem to be rehashing a 70s vibe. Instead, these guys are really trying to find their own sound – sometimes by using a bit of dub or other effects – but never in a way that's overdone, or gets in the way of the acoustic musical elements at their roots. All tracks are instrumental, and were performed live for the recording – and titles include "Return Of The March", "Touring Van", "Another Grain Of Sand", "Runnin For The Ghost", "Seeing The Bigger Picture", and "Van Chatter".

Budos BandBudos Band 2 ... LP
Daptone, 2007. New Copy ... $12.99
One of the hippest groups going in the deep funk underground – a combo who play way more than just conventional funk – and who manage to embrace a whole host of classic influences at once! Echoes of older Latin, African, and soundtrack-styled grooves sift together beautifully in this second album from The Budos Band – all in an approach that's totally unified, and which borrows the best elements from other modes to create a whole new Budos-styled sound! The album's all instrumental, but it's far more evocative than most vocal funk sessions we can think of – and the group's horns are tighter than ever, with a slightly exotic feel that creates some real otherworldly moments. Titles include "Ride Or Die", "Budos Rising", "Chicago Falcon", "King Cobra", "Origin Of Man", "Deep In The Sand", "My Girl", and "Mas O Menos". LP, Vinyl record album

Stanley ClarkeStanley Clarke – The Definitive Collection ... CD
Columbia/Robinsongs (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $11.99
Stanley Clarke's a bassist who first got his start in the headier side of the jazz spectrum in the 70s – but by the second half of that decade, he'd transformed into something else completely – a fantastic musician who could effortlessly reach across soul, funk, and fusion – combining all the best elements into an incredible sound that was all his own! Clarke's part of a generation that might include artists like Norman Connors, George Duke, and Mtume – all artists who might have been straighter jazz had they worked in the 60s, but who really flowered in the new freedoms of the 70s – as they hit superstardom with music like this. Duke and Clarke often collaborated – and you'll hear a good deal of that work on this set – which also includes work with Howard Hewett, Herbie Hancock, and Fuse One – plus lots of Stanley Clarke solo tracks too. 2CD set features 32 tracks in all – and titles include "Concerto For Jazz Rock Orchestra", "Journey To Love", "Jamaican Boy", "Modern Man", "More Hot Fun", "The Dancer", "Silly Putty", "Heroes", "Straight To The Top", "Heaven Sent You", "We Supply", "Grand Prix", "Mothership Connection", "Funny How Time Flies", "Hideaway", "Goodbye Pork Pie Hat", "What If I Should Fall In Love", "Time Exposure", "Sweet Baby", "Wild Dog", "Rocks Pebbles & Sand", and "Hot Fun".

DonovanMellow Yellow ... LP
Epic, 1967. Very Good ... $9.99
Easily one of Donovan's most successful albums – but also a brilliant blend of folk and jazz that forged a bold new sound in the 60s! Part of the strength of the set comes from arranger John Cameron – an artist that we love for his jazz and easy work of the late 60s, and who's working here with players that include British jazzmen Phil Seamen, Tony Carr, Ronnie Ross, and Harold McNair! The instrumental component of the album alone is worth the price of admission – as Cameron gently blends together moddish and trippy styles, alongside some folksier vocals and guitar from Donovan. But it's also Donovan's own extrapolation of styles of the time that really makes the album a masterpiece – a strange post-folk mode of expression that's almost a British counterpart to the genius of Simon & Garfunkel, but which is arguably darker and more intellectual. Apart from classic hits like "Museum" and "Mellow Yellow", the album also features some moodier brilliance on tracks that include "The Observation", "Hampstead Incident", "Sunny South Kensington", "Writer In The Sun", "Sand & Foam", and "House Of Jansch".

Lee HazlewoodThese Boots Are Made For Walkin' – The Complete MGM Recordings ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $12.99 19.99
Genius, pure genius! (Have we said that about Lee too many times before?) The work of Lee Hazlewood is beyond description – a bit of vocals, a bit of country, a bit of lounge, and a bit of rock – all wrapped up with a sinister edge that has you believing that this was the man who used to refer to his frequent musical partner as "Nasty" Sinatra over the headphones during recording sessions! The set features 35 tracks from Lee's obscure years at MGM records – wonderful vocal tunes that rank with some of his best ever, plus a few weird instrumentals, recorded by Lee Hazlewood's Woodchucks. Insanely wonderful stuff – records that we come back to again and again and again over the years – finally presented in their entirety, with a great set of notes on the music! Tracks include "Hands", "Mannford Oklahoma", "This Town", "Sand", "Child", "Little War", "Fort Worth", "Summer Wine", "I Move Around", "After Six", "Batman", "Summer Nights", "Suzi Jane Is Back In Town", "In Our Time", "When A Fool Loves A Fool", and "So Long Babe".

Lee HazlewoodVery Special World Of Lee Hazlewood ... CD
MGM/Water, Mid 60s. Used ... $9.99
Lee Hazlewood's world is always a very special one for us – filled with great songs, amazing production, and those icy vocals that Lee sang unlike anyone else! This album may be one of Hazlewood's greatest from the 60s – at least among his US recordings – and it's a near-perfect session with arrangements from Billy Strange, often with a slight bit of sinister guitar in the mix, but also some sublime strings too – used sparely and carefully to create a sense of deepening darkness! Lee's at his sharpest, wittiest here – singing some of his most sophisticated songs to date, but also throwing in a few nods towards his earlier pop productions. Titles include "Not The Lovin Kind", "For One Moment", "Sand", "Your Sweet Love", "My Autumn's Done Come", "I Move Around", "So Long Babe", "Bugles In The Afternoon", "My Baby Cried All Night Long", and Lee's wonderful parody remake of "These Boots Are Made For Walking".

Furthermore, 2010. Used ... $14.99
The lyrical side of Eddie Henderson – laid out beautifully in a lovely quartet recording that also features John Scofield on guitar! The album's mix of trumpet and guitar is extremely haunting – and Eddie hits a warm note that's mighty nice – almost a nod back towards some of his 70s modes, yet without any R&B touches – pure jazz all the way, couched in Scofield's strong tone – with added support from Doug Weiss on bass and Billy Drummond on drums. The album's a great balance to some of Eddie's other work in recent years – a great reminder of this side of his talents, on titles that include "Be Cool", "Missing Miles", "Popo", "By Myself", "Sand Storm", "Cantaloupe Island", and "Jitterbug Waltz".

Jermaine didn't really hit his stride making up tempo bass heavy funk until Let's Get Serious, which followed this album a few years later, but this set has a few moments that are stretching towards that high water mark in his career. Overall, it's a rather slick, highly produced affair, and though Jermaine likes to step out and push his bass playing way up front, it's the mellow synth-kissed groover "Castles Of Sand" we dig the most on this album. Also includes "The Force", "Let It Ride", "Take A Trip To My Tomorrow" and "You Gave Me Something To Believe In ". LP, Vinyl record album

David Earle JohnsonTime Is Free ... LP
Vanguard, 1977. Very Good ... $5.99
A weird little record – but not without some nice moments! The record was produced and put together by Jan Hammer – and in many ways, is very much like his hard-jamming fusion work fo the time. Earle plays congas, timbales, moog, and other percussion – and also sings on a number of cuts, often with some sort of vocal programming. Hammer's on most tracks too – jamming away on keyboards and synth with a strong sound that predates Miami Vice, and which sounds a lot rougher and meaner. There's definitely some good tracks on here that would appeal to any fan of funky fusion, but there's also some weirder noodlier bits too. Titles include "Sea Sand & Sun", "Safes", "Skin Long & Street Suite", "Lofts", "Time Is Free", and "Ten Little Times". LP, Vinyl record album

JJ Johnson & Kai WindingTrombone For Two (plus Jay & Kai) ... CD
Columbia/Mosaic, 1955/1956. Used ... $9.99
2 classic Columbia albums from the duo of JJ Johnson and Kai Winding – back to back on a single CD! First up is Trombone For Two – a 1955 session that features some really magical interplay from the twin-trombone team of Johnson and Winding! The great thing about the set is the way in which both players really bring a sense of "voice" to their music – trading back and forth almost like two friends chatting in friendly conversation – but managing to do so with a lot more swing than most! Backings are by Dick Katz on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Osie Johnson on drums – and there's a short, simple brilliance to these tunes that's hard to deny. Titles include "We Two", "It's Sand Man", "Give Me The Simple Life", "Turnabout", and "Trombone For Two". Jay & Kai captures JJ Johnson and Kai Winding at the height of their dual powers – working together beautifully at a level that both embraces the modern sound of the trombone in larger 50s ensembles, but also offers up the more fluid personality of the instrument in the smaller combo scene! The pair have a great way of coming together at the start, then splitting off to find their own space on the tunes – a wonderful antidote to some of the too-tight trombone lines of the 50s, and a great reminder that there's always a voice behind the horn. The group on the record features Dick Katz on piano and celeste, plus either Bill Crow or Milt Hinton on bass, and Shadow Wilson or Kenny Clarke on drums. Candido plays a bit of percussion on the track "Caribe" – and the pair play tromboniums on the tune "Tromboniums In Motion". Other tracks include "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To", "Happiness Is A Thing Called Joe", "The Song Is You", and "In The Wee Small Hours Of The Morning". CD

Alessandro AlessanadroniSangue Di Sbirro (180 gram pressing – with bonus track) ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1976. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $32.99
One of the funkiest soundtracks we've ever heard from Alessandro Alessandroni – a set that clearly shows he'd been listening to the score for Shaft, as well as a host of 70s sound library music too! There's lots of great Italian cop/crime grooves on the set – done at an understated level that's almost better than more familiar work of the genre – often strongly focused on the core rhythms, which are lean and plenty darn funky – bad-stepping with instrumentation that's often small combo funky jazz more than it is the bigger orchestrations of American cop scores. Titles include "Cop's Blood", "Amusement", "Duke Soul Jazz", "Tema Di Susie", "Club Jazz", "Palance", "Knell", "Sbirro In Fuga", and "Luxury".

Alessandro AlessandroniBarocco & Romantico (pink vinyl pressing) ... LP
Flipper/Dagored (Italy), 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
The title only partly gives this one away – as sound library genius Alessandro Alessandroni turns towards the world of baroque and romantic music for inspiration – yet also manages to serve up something that's very much his own in the process! This isn't one of those records in which classical compositions get an easy listening spin – and instead, Alessandroni has a way of evoking ancient ideas while still also using lots of groovy Italian soundtrack modes – a bit like the way the occasional baroque theme or electric harpsichord would turn up in some groovy 60s film scores. Both of those elements appear here, alongside other keyboards, some acoustic guitar, and other instrumentation – used in a way that's as evocative as some of Alessandro's film work. Titles include "Sonata Allegra", "Canzone Romantica", "Largo Barocco, "Minuetto In La Magg", "Giga Per Mandolino", "Mazurka Moderata", and "Variazione Romantiche". LP, Vinyl record album

A sweet funky set from the 70s – originally recorded as a sound library session, but handled by Italian soundtrack maestro Alessandro Alessandroni! You might know Alessandroni's music best from the 60s, and this set is a later updating of the same groove – one that brings in a bit more electric keyboards, some bouncier basslines, and drums that snap nice and hard on the funky numbers – then lay back on the sweet mellow moments. A few cuts have vocals – ala I Cantorni Moderni – and the whole thing has a warm, sexy 70s groove that's right up there with the best Italian work of the scene from the time. Titles include "Femminismo", "Collettivo", "La Metropoli", "Pubblica Informazione", "Prima Eta", and "Ultimo Soggiorno". Very groovy stuff! CD features 5 bonus tracks too – never issued before! CD

A sweet selection of unreleased material from the vaults of Italy's famous Cometa Records sound library – a package that's pretty heavy on keyboard and electronic bits, with a sound that's right up there with some of the best Italian horror and action scoring of the early 80s! In fact, there's a strong sense of drama throughout – a nice call to action in some of the tunes, as the keyboard lines set up a mood, then send it soaring – and basslines brood along to create these cool darker currents! The whole thing's still pretty tuneful – none of the atonal qualities that show up in other Italian scoring – and the three artists often collaborate throughout, in different groupings – on titles that include "Serpentina Junior", "Turismo Giovane", "Akriliko", "Speed", "Preallarme", "Romantico Junior", "Viaggio Giovanne", and "Riflessione".

✨✧ Mickey Baker & The Alex Sanders Funk Time BandJazz Rock Guitar ... LP
Kicking Mule (UK), 1978. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A rare later album from 50s guitar giant Mickey Baker – recorded overseas, and with a different vibe than his legendary R&B work – including some nice funky moments too! The album's not really jazz, and it's hardly rock at all – and instead is more of a bluesy effort with slight undercurrents of funk – some modern touches provided by the tight rhythms of bassist Alex Sanders and his combo – who provide a nice backdrop for Baker's sharp lines on guitar! Mickey's picked up a few modern tones over the years, but still has plenty of grit in his grooves – and titles include "Pop Off", "Prelude", "Ouagadougou", "Sophie", "Wag Your Tail", "Shadadabah", and "Alexander's Funk Time". LP, Vinyl record album
(US pressing. Cover has a cut corner, ring & edge wear, and splitting on the spine.)

Braen & Raskovich (Alessandro Alessandroni/GiulianDrammatico (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Panda/Sonor (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
They're not kidding with the title of this one – as the album leaps off to a very dramatic style, right from the start – with a surprisingly noisy sound titled after the incubation of the heavens! That noise moves aside a bit as the album moves on, but the whole thing still stays very strongly in the fuzzy, freaky territory you might know from other Italian rarities issued under the name of Braen and Raskovich – which were both studio pseudonyms for Alessandro Alessandroni and Giuliano Sorgini! Yet despite the fame of both of those artists in other settings, they're very much in a different space here – not just psych-inspired sound library modes, but also pre-industrial sounds too – of a style that seems to hint at the darker depths of the British underground in the post-punk years. At times, if we told you the album was a project by Throbbing Gristle, you wouldn't be surprised – and like TG, there's some surprisingly tuneful points amidst the noisier moments. Titles include "Dispersi", "Accerchiamento", "Linea Di Resistenza", "Insidia", "Ultimo Istante", and "Avanzata". LP, Vinyl record album

Sandro BrugnoliniFantabulous (180 gram pressing – with bonus 7 inch) ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
A legendary lost late 60s soundtrack by Italian composer and sax player Sandro Brugnolini – a stunner that lives up to the title! Fantabulous is a diverse batch of compositions – from upbeat Italian small combo jazz, to moodier, more profoundly cinematic grooves, to creepy little organ and choral vocal bits that presage the giallo soundtrack style, to lighter, kind of comical or carnivalesque sounds. This is really tremendous stuff, and works very well as a stand alone listening experience, though the film it's made for is a real trip! A couple pieces have lyrics by Sergio Spina and titles include several variations on the great title theme "Fantabulous", "Op", "I've Glimpsed You", "Sog", "Rhyt", Sog", "Vol" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(180 gram pressing – with a bonus 7-inch single featuring alternate mixes of "Fantabulous" and "I've Glimpsed You".)

Sandro Brugnolini & Luigi MalatestaGungala La Pantera Nuda ... CD
Cinevox/Saimel (Spain), 1968. Used ... $19.99
A nude panther? This one already had our attention with the title – and once we heard the music, things got even better – a very groovy blend of jazz and 60s elements by Sandro Brugnolini & Luigi Malatesta – put together in modes that rival some of the better-known Italian scores of the time! The leadoff tune "Gungala" features great English vocals from Pat Starke, alongside some cool-stepping organ – and that organ returns often on other instrumental tracks, almost creating this Piero Piccioni-like mood amidst the strings and some of the more exotic instrumentation! Even when the orchestrations are a bit more conventional, they're still quite striking – and the score is one of those great Italian 60s efforts that seems to offer up new flavors at every twist and turn. Titles include "Il Serpente", "Gungala Serenata", "Tam Tam Marimba", "Gungala Road", "July", "Sabbie Mobili", and "Afro Free". CD

Sandro Brugnolini & Modern Jazz GangGli Arcangeli (180 gram colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Dagored (Italy), 1962. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
An incredible jazz soundtrack from early 60s Italy – performed by saxophonist Sandro Brugnolini and his Modern Jazz Gang! The work's on a par with any of the great French jazz soundtracks of the late 50s – with a rich, evocative style of composition that takes the music far past its initial use in the film – and which makes the album itself an extremely compelling batch of tracks that works almost as a movie in sound! The solo performances are wonderful all around, and Brugnolini's alto and clarinet are joined by Cicci Santucci on trombone and Enzo Scoppa on tenor and flute – and as a special bonus, American jazz vocalist Helen Merrill sings on 3 of the album's best tracks. Titles include "Helen's Blues", "Infedeli", "Interlude In Jazz", "Portuense Cha Cha Cha", "Paolo In Love", and "Speak Only For You". LP, Vinyl record album

Sandro Brugnolini/CarniniBeat Drammatico, Underground, Pop Elettronic ... CD
Fonit/Schema (Italy), 1973. New Copy ... $16.99
Exactly the kind of record that makes us love sound library records so much – and definitely the sort that sets the style apart from anything else we can think of! Both Sandro Brugnolini and Giorgio Carnini turn in some great work here – a mindblowing mix of modes over the space of ten short tracks – some tunes a cascading array of instrumentation, in a hip groove that's neither American jazz or soundtrack funk, but a special space of its own! Other tunes use an electronic approach that's years ahead of its time – as groovy as 60s analogue, but a lot darker, too – in ways that the rest of the world might not touch until the German new wave. The balance is almost even between swinging groovers and darker electronic cuts – and titles include "Grinta", "Azione CIA", "Scalo Clandestino", "Alambicco Cibernetico", "Strutture Generative", "Omicido Bianco", and "CIA Massacre".

Sandro Brugnolini/Stefano TorossiMusica Per Commenti Sonori (with bonus CD) ... LP
Carosello/Schema (Italy), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
An Italian funk double-header – a sweet little set from the end of the 60s, and one that features killer cuts from both Sandro Brugnolini and Stefano Torossi! We love either artist on their other own records, but there also seems to be something about putting them together here that makes them even better than before – certainly funkier, as the album's full of the kind of sharp, hard-grooving titles that first made us fall in love with sound library records in the first place! The date of the album's 1969, and both musicians make nice use of psych elements in their instrumentation – adding a bit of fuzz, wah-wah, or trippy guitar in just the right spaces – never going over the top, or getting too indulgent – but just moving in a groove that's tightly jazz funky at the bottom, and maybe a bit freaky at the top. Wonderful work throughout – and titles include "Sweet Beat", "Repetition", "Starter", and "Makkaresh" by Stefano Torossi – and "Wawa", "Motuproprio", "Polyphony", and "Flyer" by Sandro Brugnolini.

Sandy BullFantasias For Guitar & Banjo ... LP
Vanguard, 1963. Very Good ... $34.99
Mindblowing minimalism from the legendary Sandy Bull – an artist who might have had acoustic roots in folk music, but who was instantly turning his music into something else – drawing on modal styles of Eastern music, European generations of expression on guitar, jazz-based improvisation – and maybe even prefiguring work to come from composers like Terry Riley and La Monte Young! This album's one of Bull's first, and it's pure genius right from the start – with a side-long performance on the incredible "Blend", which features slight drums from jazz musician Billy Higgins – which Sandy extrapolates these long passages on acoustic guitar. Side two features the fantastic "Carmina Burana Fantay" on banjo – a kind of trans-historical performance that's right up there with John Fahey's best of the decade – alongside equally mindblowing "Non Nobis Domine" and "Little Maggie" – and the closing electric guitar genius of "Gospel Tune".

✨✧ CandidoThousand Finger Man ... LP
Solid State, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Stone lost Latin funk! This is Candido's rarest – and it's a killer batch of conga-heavy grooves, recorded in the late 60s for Solid State, and featuring a very groovy set of mod Latin arrangements by Joe Cain. The band features organ, guitar, bass, horns, and some upfront conga solos from Candido. Tracks are longer than usual for this sort of album – and there's a lot of strange elements floating through the tracks, in a very nice way! Titles include "Thousand Finger Man", which has some especially firey conga breakdowns, plus "Jump Back", "Soul Limbo", "Tony's Theme (from Lady In Cement)", and "Come On Choo Choo Train".

ClashSandinista! ... LP
Epic, 1980. Very Good 3LP ... $33.99
The longest album ever from The Clash – a stunning triple LP set that really shows the group bristling with new ideas and energy throughout! There's a hell of a lot going on here – some cuts that are every bit as strong as the previous records, others that offer a few mis-steps but in a wonderfully playful way – and a few more that really hit this sort of unique mix of genres and politics that could only be summed up as Clash-like at its best! Bits of hip hop, reggae, new wave, funk, and more mix together beautifully – and the album's got a hell of a lot of charm and character, even if you're skipping past a few of the cuts you don't like as much as the others. 36 tracks in all – and titles include "The Magnificent Seven", "Hitsville UK", "Junco Partner", "The Leader", "Police On My Back", "Midnight Log", "The Call Up", "Washington Bullets", "Broadway", "Rebel Waltz", "Look Here", "The Crooked Beat", "Somebody Got Murdered", "Lose This Skin", "Charlie Don't Surf", "Kingston Advice", "Corner Soul", "Let's Go Crazy", "The Sound Of Sinners", "Living In Fame", "Silicone On Sapphire", and "Career Opportunities".
