Allen GinsbergAllen Ginsberg Reads Kaddish – A 20th Century American Ecstatic Narrative Poem ... LP
Atlantic, 1966. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $43.99
The one-and-only entry in the Verbatum series from Atlantic Records – a proposed spoken word offshoot of the label – but one that only ever issued this fantastic 60s reading by Allen Ginsberg! As you might guess from the cover's beautiful photograph by Richard Avedon, Ginsberg is at the height of his hippie years here – and the poem Kaddish is a freewheeling, spiritually-infused work that is quite different than some of the earlier beat material. Ginsberg draws both on his Jewish roots and his increasing conflict with society for the piece – which is presented here in a lively recording done at Brandeis in 1964. LP, Vinyl record album

Jerry SolomonPast The 20th Century ... LP
Modern Harmonic, Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99 24.99
The title might be a bit reversed – because there's hardly anything 21st Century at all about this music – and at some level, it almost feels as if Jerry Solomon is going back in time – at least within the parameters of his own life! The songs often have this weird, almost child-like approach – with spare instrumentation that might include toy piano, chimes, percussion, and guitar – the last of which is almost never used in a straightforward manner. Jerry sings, but with this almost dirge-like quality – in a way that instantly makes all the tunes sound very weird and offbeat right from the start. The titles give a good idea of the spirit – and include "Denied Of All Human Life", "I Just Don't Fit This Modern Age", "A Good Old Fashioned Date", "They Came From Everywhere", and "Past The 20th Century".

✨✧ Love UnlimitedLove Unlimited – The Uni, MCA, & 20th Century Records Singles 1972 to 1975 ... CD
Universal, Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic selection of work from one of the hippest girl groups of the 70s – the mighty Love Unlimited trio, three singers who all worked under the genius of Barry White in his prime! Unlike other girl trios of the time, who often used an older soul mode refitted with disco grooves – sometimes acting more like a chorus than a lead act – Love Unlimited always brought their full vocal strengths to play, and do a fantastic job here working in modes that rival some of the best male harmony groups of the early 70s – especially the sweet soul groups from New Jersey, New York, and Philly. And yes, Barry does kick up the groove a bit at times, but even then things are usually more in a midtempo mode, not a disco one – which makes for tremendous sounds throughout. This is the first-ever proper collection of the girls' singles from the early 70s – and titles include "Oh Love Well We Finally Made It", "Fragile Handle With Care", "Are You Sure", "I Should Have Known", "Is It Really True Boy Is It Me", "Walkin In The Rain With The One I Love", "Under The Influence Of Love", "It May Be Winter Outside", "I Love You So Never Gonna Let You Go", "I Belong To You", "So Nice To Hear", "People Of Tomorrow Are The Children Of Today", and "Share A Little Love In Your Heart".

20th Century, 1972. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
A killer bit of harmony soul – one of the greatest of the genre from the 70s! Brighter Side Of Darkness are barely remembered these days – but "Love Jones" is one of those cuts that will go on forever – a sweetly tripped out number with incredibly baroque production, matched only by the incredibly great vocals of the youthful group! "I'm The Guy" is a bit more conventional, but still a great harmony cut too! 7-inch, Vinyl record

DellsI Touched A Dream ... LP
20th Century, 1980. Sealed ... $9.99
One thing about The Dells: They were always great! Even here, at the end of the 70s, in settings that are less perfect than their classic work for Cadet or Vee Jay, the group still sound wonderful – more daring vocally than most other harmony groups at the time, cutting through some smoother arrangements with a sublime approach to the material that's all-soul all the way! Arrangements get a bit uptempo and modern, but they're still in a strong Chicago groove – with backings by Tom Tom 84 and Sonny Sanders, and production by Carl Davis and Eugene Record, making for a late 70s update of the classic Brunswick soul approach. Titles include "Look At Us Now", "All About The Paper", "So You Are Love", "Passionate Breezes", and "I Touched A Dream". LP, Vinyl record album

Sublime soul from one of the most under-recognized singers of all time! "Bring My Baby Back" is a different tune than the hit of the same name – sung by Jesse in a light, yet soulful vocal style that's really tremendous. "Thank You Darlin" is even greater – coming full on right away, with a proud-stepping little groove, and some incredible vocals that blow away even Garnett Mimms and Howard Tate! 7-inch, Vinyl record

A great little record from Bill LaBounty – a singer/songwriter who'd rise to even greater success in the late 70s, with some gems that have become overlooked AOR classics – but an artist who still sounds great in this record from before that work! Bill's maybe a bit more rootsy here, but still has a great way with a tune – and titles include "I Hope You'll Be Very Unhappy Without Me", "Lie To Me", "Crazy", "Take A Step", "Another Drunk", and "Open Your Eyes". Plus, the whole thing's got a fantastic wraparound cover by comics legend Neal Adams – maybe worth the price of the record alone! LP, Vinyl record album

Classic 70s female soul – and one of the best albums ever recorded by Love Unlimited – a trio of ladies recording with Barry White during his glory years! The album's got a really incredible approach – partly in the mode of older female group soul, but also done with a hipper, more righteous style – one that pushes the sound past older standards for the music, yet which falls into none of the disco cliches of the time. The album includes a great vocal version of "Love's Theme", plus the group's totally killer "Move Me No Mountain" – and the tracks "I Love You So, Never Gonna Let You Go", "Share A Little Love In Your Heart", and "I Needed Love – You Were There".

Nelson Riddle/Adam West & Burt WardBatman – Original Television Soundtrack ... LP
20th Century/Universal, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
Holy Soundtracks! Of all the knock-off Batman albums from the 60s, this one's the only legit soundtrack to the Batman TV show – and it's way way better than any other piece of vinyl with the Batman logo at the time! The album is every bit as great as you might think – as it's got the full flavor of the campy television classic – with loads of the original music from the show – the themes you remember, as you heard them, and not a bunch of watered-down tracks inspired by the show – plus (and this is the best part!), the record has loads of dialogue from the TV show in between the tracks – cool exclamations from Adam West, Burt Ward, and others – which makes listening to the record as fun as watching the show! Titles include "Batman Pows The Penguin", "Batman Riddles The Riddler", "Gotham City", "Batman Thaws Mr Freeze", and "To The Batmobile!" LP, Vinyl record album

A funky funky thumper from Barry White – and one of his last truly genius tracks! "Ecstasy" is presented here in a long long version that lets the tune's initial bass and drum interplay stretch out magnificently – sliding and slinking along in a classic White-styled groove, as strings soar into the mix and build the whole thing up before Barry's vocals come in and send it on home! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Johnny Williams/Dory & Andre PrevinValley Of The Dolls ... LP
20th Century, 1967. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A great little soundtrack – as campy as the film it was written for – and a record that's gone on to be one of the touchstone soundtracks of the 60s! Some of the tunes are more straight numbers by Johnny Williams – a bit dreamy, but with some nice easy touches – but the best tunes are the swinging vocal numbers, like "Give A Little More", "Come Live with Me" and "I'll Plant My Own Tree" – which have the fierceness of the film's characters set loose on record (an important thing in the years before you could watch a DVD copy of the movie at home!) Plus, the album starts out with the great monologue which begins the film – kind of a dreamy narrative about the beginning of the downfall that destroyed the life of Neely Bruce – and leads into tracks that include "It's Impossible", "Theme From Valley Of The Dolls", "Jennifer's Recollection", and "Jennifer's French Movie".

Standout work from The Younghearts – one of the best harmony soul groups of the 70s to record away from the east coast. The group's vocals are the strongest thing about the record – but they get a great extra push from Vernon Bullock, who produced and conducted the record with a nice smooth finish. HB Barnum arranged the strings and horns, and he gives the record a bit of a lilt, which moves the tracks along at a good clip, avoiding cliches that can sometimes plague albums of this sort. Includes "We've Got Love", "What Does It Take to Win Your Love", "For The Rest of My Life", and "You're Not Here With Me" – plus the nice instrumental, "A Taste Of". LP, Vinyl record album

20th Century/Westbound, 1975. Sealed ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Classic work from Fantastic Four – who are really hitting their stride vocally, moving into a whole new sound from their work in the late 60s. The groove is a mix of 70s harmony soul and early Westbound disco – and the longish tracks get quite involved, both vocally and arrangement-wise. The title cut – "Alvin Stone (Birth & Death Of A Gangster)" – is a righteous post-Temps soul track, and the album's got lots of other nice ones, like "Let This Moment Last Forever", "County Line", and "My Love Won't Stop at Nothing".

The album's got loads of wonderful tracks – including the slight break/sample number "Journey To Marseilles", the dancing wordless vocal number "No Need To Cry", the breathy vocal take of "Hello Goodbye", with singing by Genevieve Gilles, and the fast chase tune "Destination Le Havre".

20th Century/Harkit (UK), 1970. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
"It's not a sequel – there's never been anything like it." Finally, an awesome reissue of the classically groovy camp soundtrack to "king of the nudies" Russ Meyer's crazy non-sequel to Valley Of The Dolls – one of the greatest exploitation movies of all time! The music is almost unbelievably great for what was essentially supposed to be an X-rated cheapie (little did 20th Century Fox know) – with a wonderfully huge & string heavy score by composer Stu Phillips, insanely groovy, stomping mod rock from the Sandpipers, Strawberry Alarm Clock, and the film's busty real-life Playboy Bunny heroines the Carrie Nations/Kelly Affair! This is a limited, extended edition that runs nearly an hour and includes bonus tracks and a few priceless dialogue snippets from the film – packaged with a thick booklet with cast and filmmaker bios and reminiscences, all the photos you could hope for, and soooo much more. Z Man says it best – "This is MY happening, and IT FREAKS ME OUT!" Titles include the Carrie Nations tunes "Find It" and "Come With The Gentle People", the Strawberry Alarm Clock's "Girl From The City" and "I'm Coming Home", the Sandpipers groovy "Beyond The Valley Of The Dolls Theme", and tons more.

There's less standout singles here than some of White's other albums from the time – but that's the great thing about the album, too – as it encourages you to take the whole thing together at once – as such a masterpiece should be enjoyed.

The legendary Gene Chandler gets down, and gets down good – in this classic late 70s set of clubby numbers and upbeat groovers! The set's one of the best moments on the Chi-Soul series from producer Carl Davis – and features a nicely evolved version of earlier Chicago soul modes from Tom Tom 84 and Sonny Sanders – both of whom push an older Brunswick style into some smoother, more sophisticated modern soul territory! Chandler's vocals are wonderful, as always – and have a catchy snapping feel on the groovers, mixed with surprisingly deep soul on the few mellower moments.

Karen AbbottSin In The Second City – Madams, Ministers, Playboys & The Battle For American's Soul ... Book
Random House, 2007. New Copy ... $4.99 17.00
Our fair city of Chicago has always been a pretty sleazy place – but back at the start of the 20th century, there was a higher kind of sex trade going on – one that featured high class houses of ill-reputed, and well-educated hookers – which led to a lot more crossing over between the brothels and the boardrooms! This well-done book looks at a very specific time in the city's history – a point when Chicago was really coming into its own – both as a city of industry and a city of sin – a place where reformers rubbed shoulders with gangsters, as part of the new urban experiment. The book does a great job of tracing this larger narrative, in a way that's hardly as salacious as you might expect – a different sort of snapshot than the Devil In The White City. 364 pages, softcover.

Primary Information, 2018. New Copy ... $24.99 34.00
One of the coolest discographies you'll ever see in your life – a special book devoted to ultra-rare records created by artists as well as musicians – first published in 1989, and filled with a wealth of obscure records from the 50s through the 80s! Musical styles run from avant jazz to punk, 20th century classical, electronic music, and many other modes that defy easy definition – and the records include very limited vinyl pressed up for a show or an exhibition, to more widely-circulated material that's still pretty darn far left of center! The book also includes essays by Theodor Adorno, Rene Block, Jean Dubuffet, Laszlo Moholy Nagy, and others – and the discography is 200 pages, with listings for records by dozens of artists – including Max Ernst, Peter Gordon, Karel Appel, Hugo Ball, Andy Warhol, Yoshi Wada, Gerhard Richter, Yoko Ono, Hermann Nitsch, Albert Oehlen, Sol Lewitt, Laurie Anderson, John Cage, Conrad Schnitzler, Michael Snow, and many many others. The book is a hefty 279 pages, softcover, with black and white images throughout – and also includes a flexidisc of the Arditti String Quartet playing "Broken Music" by Milan Knizak. Book
(Limited edition – and comes with a bonus flexidisc!)

Chuck Brown & The Soul SearchersAny Other Way To Go? ... CD
Rhythm Attack (Germany), 1987. Used ... $8.99
A later Go-Go effort from the legendary Chuck Brown – quite different from his Soul Searchers work, but very much in the best spirit of DC Go-Go material of the time! Like some of the more famous sets of this type, there's a very live, spontaneous feel to the whole record – lots of tight instrumentation from the group – played with a style that's clearly an 80s transformation of funk – as the group work their way through endless riffs and references from a history of 20th Century soul, R&B, and jazz. The record's almost got the same non-stop feel of an old Go-Go gig – and titles include "Run Joe", "Stormy Monday", "Family Affair", "Do That Stuff", "Go-Go Drug Free" and "Be Bumpin Fresh". CD

Burnt Sugar ArkestraTwentieth Anniversary Mixtapes – Groiddest Shizznits Vol 1 ... CD
Avantgroidd, 2000s/2010s. New Copy ... $12.99
A fantastic 20th anniversary celebration of Burnt Sugar – one of the most righteous, forward-thinking ensembles of the past few decades – some of the first proponents of a 21st Century sound that now seems to be flowing from many other corners! Yet these guys are still unlike anyone else we can think of – maybe a jazz ensemble at the core, but one that's keenly aware of soul, funk, and hip hop – and not afraid to allow any of those elements equal play in their music – almost as if Duke Ellington grew up in the 90s, listening to electric Miles Davis, Tribe Called Quest, and Curtis Mayfield – then found a way to expand larger musical ideas based on influences that diverse. Greg Tate founded the group, and directs with bassist Jared Michael Nickerson – and this series of three CDs is dedicated to bringing back some of the group's best work, much of which has gone out of print in recent years. Guests on this first album include Matana Roberts and Capt Kirk Douglas – and titles include "Mazzafrique", "If There's A Hell Below", "Sandpiper", "Kirk Bit My Hand", "Crazy In The Dark", "The Crepescularium", "Wretched Of The Earth Page 88", and "4.29.92".

A beautiful tribute to one of the greatest composers of the 20th Century – Duke Ellington's longtime musical partner, the mighty Billy Strayhorn! The book presents Billy's life and music in a really great format – using songs as sidebars amidst the larger text – which is then illustrated with a huge amount of beautiful oversized photos, reproductions of scores, and other great images! There's also additional sidebars on Strayhorn from jazz peers who include Clark Terry, Nancy Wilson, Lena Horne, and many others – and the book has this wonderfully vivid approach that really does the creative genius as much justice on the page as he's gotten on record. 196 pages, hardcover, and filled with great images!

✨✧ Bing CrosbyMerry Christmas ... LP
Decca, 1940s. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
This may well be THE Christmas album of the 20th century – a 50s issue of 40s singles cut by Der Bingle, packaged in a cover with a classic cover image that's ensured that the record stayed in print for dozens of Decembers in years to come! Given that Bing virtually owned Christmas on TV during the 50s, 60s, and 70s, the album's place in popular music is well-earned – and honestly, Bing's "aw shucks, I'm just reg'lar folks" sort of approach to these tunes really helped create a kind of common man secular side to the Holidays that forever transformed America's celebration of the season. Or maybe we're going to far with this one . . . But whatever the case, the album's a standard, and one we were certainly raised on. Titles include "Silver Bells", "Jingle Bells", "Silent Night", "White Christmas", "Adeste Fideles", "Faith Of Our Fathers", "I'll Be Home For Christmas", and "It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas".

Kenny's piano dominates, making the album feel more like a solo set than anything else – and the set features 12 nicely-done versions of Harry Warren tunes – including "Remember Me", "Lullaby Of Broadway", "You're My Everything", "You'll Never Know", and "September In The Rain".

Bob DylanTriplicate (3LP 180 gram vinyl set) ... LP
Columbia, 2017. Near Mint- 3LP ... $24.99
Bob Dylan takes on the American songbook once again – revisiting the territory of classic 20th century songwriters that he touched on the Fallen Angels album, but in an overstuffed mode that definitely warrants the Triplicate title! The triple-length format really has Dylan going to town on the material – and maybe doing a lot more than just trying to ape an older singer like Frank Sinatra – as the arrangements are often surprisingly fresh, and almost hit the kind of country/standard mode that Willie Nelson hit with his Stardust recording. In fact, given the rasp and world-heavy tone of Dylan's voice, and the strong use of both acoustic and steel guitar on some of the tunes, the whole thing maybe feels more like a vision of midcentury, seen through a lens that gives the sound of Nashville a lot more importance in the canon. The set was recorded at the Capitol Studios, which seems a great place to capture this vibe – and titles include, not surprisingly, "Stardust", plus "This Nearly Was Mine", "Stormy Weather", "Once Upon A Time", "The Best Is Yet To Come", "As Time Goes By", "Imagination", "Day In Day Out", "There's A Flaw In My Flue", "These Foolish Things", and "You Go To My Head".

Fantasy/Craft, 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99 29.99
An amazing record – one with a depth that goes way beyond its simple roots, and which has gone on to become one of the true Christmas classics of the 20th Century! Although a Christmas soundtrack, the album's more of a tapestry of sadness, longing, and loss – the best qualities that always emerge in true Christmas classics – underscoring the blue side of the season that's always lurking around corners from the happier moments. Vince Guaraldi penned this score back when he was a rising talent on the San Francisco scene – and in a way, it was almost his musical contribution to the cartoon that made it such a lasting favorite – even over and above the appeal of the famous animated characters. Most tunes are simple piano ones, but played with a phrasing that's beautifully timeless – and the few vocal numbers feature voices from the cartoon, singing softly with the music. Titles include the classic "Linus and Lucy" – plus "My Little Drum", "Christmas Is Coming", "Christmas Time Is Here", "Skating", and "Fur Elise". LP, Vinyl record album

This 50th Anniversary edition features the core album, a replica of the 1965 book by Charles Schultz, and four double-sided postcards – similar to those from the early Fantasy Records version! Also includes the bonus CD Peanuts Portraits – key character themes penned and played by the legendary Vince Guaraldi, in a set of recordings that features both acoustic piano and Fender Rhodes! A few cuts get really funky, too – the electric numbers, which remind us that back when we were wee ones, watching these cartoons, Guaraldi was already shaping our consciousness with his great way with a groove. The package is one that really gets right to the heart of Guaraldi's genius – and shakes free of some of the holiday spirit of other Peanuts jazz packages, to get into some incredibly groovy numbers that include "Peppermint Patty", "Joe Cool", "Charlie's Blues (variation)", "Blue Charlie Brown (version 2)", "Frieda (alternate)", "Little Birdie", and "Schroeder (alternate)" – plus the famous "Linus & Lucy".

Merle HaggardJust Between The Two Of Us/The Fightin' Side Of Me ... CD
Capitol/BGO (UK), 1966/1970. New Copy ... $8.99 14.99
Two very different albums from Merle Haggard – both of them pretty darn great – one a duet with 60s wife Bonnie Owens, the other a great live album! Just Between The Two Of Us is one of the greatest albums that Bonnie Owens ever recorded for Capitol Records – and not just because husband Merle Haggard was along to help on vocal duets! The mixture of Haggard and Owens is quite different than some of the other country duos of the time – possibly because of some of the struggles of their own time together, which not only seems to move the music away from some of Merle's usual themes, but also has the pair being surprisingly honest and open about their melancholy moods. And although Hag's usually the main songwriter on his records, Bonnie penned most of the original songs here, recorded next to a few Bill Anderson gems too. Titles include "Just Between The Two Of Us", "A House Without Love Is Not A Home", "Stranger In My Arms", "Forever & Ever", "I Wanta Live Again", "Our Hearts Are Holding Hands", "Slowly But Surely", and "So Much For Me So Much For You". Fighting Side Of Me is best known for the reactionary title tune, quite unfortunately, since it's a really amazing document of Haggard and the Strangers at their all time best. Like most of Merle's live shows throughout the years, it's bookended by some great original tunes like "I Take A Lot Of Pride In What I Am" and "Today I Started Loving You Again", plus a travelogue of 20th Century country music – from the spare sadness of Jimmie Rodgers's "T.B. Blues" to the Western swing of "Corrina, Corrina", to Tommy Collins's "When Did Right Become Wrong", Johnny Cash's "Orange Blossom Special", Hank Snow's "I'm Moving On" and well beyond. All of which is to say it's one of the best live country albums ever recorded for a major label! CD

Walter JacksonFeeling Good ... LP
Chi Sound, 1976. Very Good ... $0.99
The first of six "comeback" albums that this great Chicago soul singer cut during his second wave of recording during the late 70s! Walter had originally done some amazing work with the great Carl Davis at the Okeh label during the mid 60s – and this album marks a return to their collaboration – this time at Davis' own Chi-Sound subsidiary of 20th Century Records. Jackson here takes all the smooth sophistication of his early days, and transforms himself into an adult singer of soul songs – taking a route similar to that travelled by singers like Jerry Butler or Lou Rawls at the same time. Like Rawls, the style doesn't always work – but when it does, it's great. Titles include "Love Is Lovelier", "Words", "Too Shy To Say", "Please Pardon Me (You Remind Me Of A Friend)", "Love Woke Me Up This Morning", and a remake of "Welcome Home". LP, Vinyl record album

Brunswick/West Side (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... $18.99
Walter Jackson was one of the greatest voices of the Chicago soul scene – from his early recordings on the Okeh label to the later material included on this tasty set! During the late 70s, Walter recorded some very nice albums for the Chisound subsidiary of Brunswick and 20th Century – and by that time, he'd changed his style into a smooth, easy, modern one – drawing a bit on the style of Teddy Pendergrass, but still keeping true to his classic roots as a Chicago "Iceman". The material showed the sophistication of earlier years – but also reflected the changing face of American songwriting, and the non-stop talents of great Chicago and Philly songwriters. We really dig this set – and find it to be an incredible batch of oft-overlooked smooth soul tracks with a very mellow sound. Titles include "The Meeting", "I'll Come Back", "Love Woke Me Up This Morning", "It's Cool", "Touching In The Dark", "And If I Had", "Love Is Lovelier", and "Come To Me". 20 cuts in all – and a great selection from some of Walter's obscure albums!

Jesse James is one of our favorite singers ever – an obscure San Francisco talent with a voice that's instantly captivating, as you'll hear on the set's selection of his early singles, plus tracks from his one rare album on 20th Century. Titles by Jesse include "Believe In Me Baby (parts 1 & 2)", "Bring My Baby Back", "Are You Gonna Leave Me", "Home At Last", "I'll Never Find Another One", and "I Need You Baby". Clarence Ashe has a rougher sound – nice and heavy, in a hard southern mode – and he's represented here by 13 tracks that include "Troubles I've Had", "In The Middle Of The Night", "Back To Muscle Shoals", "You Jived Me Long Enough", "Only Time Will Tell", and "Don't Open The Door On Monday".

Transatlantic/Superior Viaduct, 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
Continuing genius from the great Bert Jansch – the singer/songwriter's second album, and one of his most sublime records ever! The album's got an up-close, personal vibe – mostly just Bert's vocals and acoustic guitar, a bit like the earliest albums by Bob Dylan – and like Dylan, Jansch has this approach that's completely his own – very much schooled in older 20th century traditions, but focused on finding a new way forward – with a mix of melodic and harmonic elements that flow from his guitar with effortless ease, and are matched by some beautifully pointed vocals by a singer who sounds unlike anyone else. At times, the tunes have a quality that's almost hypnotic – a bit of a John Fahey vibe in the progressions, but a bit warmer – and titles include "Tinker's Blues", "It Don't Bother Me", "Harvest Your Thoughts Of Love", "Lucky Thirteen", "As The Day Grows Longer Now", "So Long", "900 Miles", and "Ring A Ding Blues".

A brilliant collection of work from Stan Kenton – recordings from his Innovations Orchestra, the groundbreaking group from the years 1950 and 1951, which featured players that include Art Pepper, Bob Cooper, Shorty Rogers, and Laurindo Almeida! The work features Kenton in some of his most modern modes – taking the broad range of colors and tones he first started forging in the late 40s, and fusing them onto some modern jazz ideals of the early 50s. The result is some incredible music that still sounds extremely fresh today – tracks that still have a swinging rhythm and jazz-based solos, but which also have a keen ear towards the 20th Century Classical Music of mid century. Titles include "Solitaire", "Soliloquy", "June Christy", "Shelly Manne", "House Of Strings", "Cello-logy", "Art Pepper", "Halls Of Brass", "In Veradero", "Blues In Riff", and "Coop's Solo". 2CDs, great notes, and 30 tracks in all!

This book is way more than just another fluff piece on postwar tiki culture – and instead digs deep into the US fascination with Pacific culture – tracing its roots to exploratory efforts of the 19th Century, then showing the huge explosion in the 20th – as America began to annex Hawaii, and both WWII and the budding airline industry allowed US citizens to travel to the islands, and bring a fair bit of its culture back home! The presentation is in the best Taschen mode – glossy pages, filled with beautiful images and surprisingly strong writing, too – in chapters that cover topics that look at the Hawaiian music craze, tiki cocktail bars, exotic dining in America, exotica style, and celebrities' role in island culture – plus lots lots more.

A dark and extremely avant garde soundtrack from the great Ennio Morricone – one that's done in collaboration with his own Gruppo Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza – an ensemble with roots in film scoring, but expressions that are more in the mode of 20th century avant! The music is a blend of free improvisation and more straight ahead jazz – with electric guitar, trumpet, violin, and percussion mixed with lots of weird effects and electronics – much more experimental than some of Morricone's more famous soundtracks of the time, and given a nice sense of direction from conductor Bruno Nicolai. The whole thing's incredibly spooky – one of the most turgid scores we've ever heard from the pen of Morricone – and the titles include "Sequita", "Evaporazione", "Dal Sogno E Ritorno", "Folle Folle", and "Notte E Misteri".

The sound is incredible – almost out-AORing all the global AOR references that Motta's given us in both his own music, and some of the great collections he's done over the years – but there's also more of a special small combo vibe, with some instrumentation on the record that seems even more compelling than usual – and which includes some great guitar moments from Ed, in addition to Fender Rhodes. Take it from us, the whole thing is superb – as appealing to fans of the older soul tradition that Motta inherited in his youth, as it is to people who love jazzy vocals, and even those elite few of us who think that Steely Dan were one of the highest points in 20th Century music.

Kliph NesteroffComedians – Drunks, Thieves, Scoundrels, & The History Of American Comedy (hardcover) ... Book
Grove Press, 2015. New Copy ... $6.99 28.00
A wonderfully wide look at the growth of American comedy in the 20th century – a book whose subject matter is definitely hinted at by the cover image! The author goes into great depth, and follows a fascinating path of the shifting venues for comedic expression – which also shift the nature of the material too – in a trajectory that's slightly related to musical development in the 20th century too! The chapter titles give a good idea of the book's pathway – and include "Vaudeville Comedians", "Radio", "Nightclubs", "Television", "The Emergence Of Las Vegas", "Stand-Up's Great Change", "First Comedy Clubs & The 1970s", "Hippie Madness At Decade's End", and "The Stand-Up Comedy Boom". The hefty hardcover is 425 pages, with a section of illustrations in the middle. Book

Nurse With WoundHomotopy To Marie (2CD version – with bonus tracks) ... CD
United Dairies/Rotorelief (France), Early 80s. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99
Legendary early work from Nurse With Wound – one of the group's first few albums, done at a time when it was quite difficult to ever figure out where they were coming from! Steven Stapleton's clearly got a strong influence here from 20th Century avant composition modes, particularly tape-based sounds, but he's also much more open with his approach – in that way that always made NWW such a refreshing change from some of the more academic forces that were sometimes trapping the music, and not allowing it to grow at a level that might have more contact with the rest of the world. We're not saying that the set was designed to crash the ivory towers, but over the years this period of the Stapleton's work has done exactly that – with a sound that's still as striking all these many years later as when first recorded! Fantastic book-style 2CD reissue – with the original album, and bonus material recorded at the same time. CD

Anne Stewart O'DonnellMotawi Tileworks – Contemporary Handcrafted Tiles In The Arts & Crafts Tradition (hardcover) ... Book
Pomegranate, 2008. New Copy ... $8.99 29.95
A beautiful book that really follows up the image on the cover – offering up dozens of full color illustrations of contemporary ceramic work with a very vintage vibe – all tiles created by the Motawi Tileworks company in Ann Arbor, Michigan! The book is full color – and although the work is new, it feels like poring through some vintage catalog of arts and crafts materials from the early part of the 20th century. 112 pages, hardcover.

Frank SinatraJolly Christmas From Frank Sinatra ... CD
Capitol, Mid 50s. Used ... $3.99
One of the greatest Christmas albums of the 20th century – a rich tapestry of sadness and longing from Ol' Blue Eyes himself! Sure, most folks think that Christmas albums are supposed to be cheery and celebratory – but Frank, coming off of his best Wee Small Hours years at Capitol, rightly chose the sadder side of Christmas – and put together an album full of songs that really get at the bluer side of the holiday. Side one of the set includes some tremendous secular songs – the kind of mid-century tunes that often had a dark undercurrent of separation and unfulfilled desire – masquerading as holiday tunes, but in Frank's hands, coming off more like smokey late night tunes of lost love and wasted life. Side two's got some more spiritual-oriented tunes – but again, done by Frank, with arrangements by Gordon Jenkins, these tunes come off with a lot less celebratory spirit than you'd expect. Titles include "The Christmas Waltz", "Mistletoe & Holly", "The Christmas Song", "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas", "It Came Upon A Midnight Clear", and "I'll Be Home For Christmas". CD

Vinylogy (UK), 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 5CD ... $12.99
A great set of Christmas classics – five albums, each represented with LP-styled artwork in a box of 5 CDs! First up is Jolly Christmas by Frank Sinatra – one of the greatest Christmas albums of the 20th century – a rich tapestry of sadness and longing from Ol' Blue Eyes himself! Sure, most folks think that Christmas albums are supposed to be cheery and celebratory – but Frank, coming off of his best Wee Small Hours years at Capitol, rightly chose the sadder side of Christmas – and put together an album full of songs that really get at the bluer side of the holiday. Side one of the set includes some tremendous secular songs – the kind of mid-century tunes that often had a dark undercurrent of separation and unfulfilled desire – masquerading as holiday tunes, but in Frank's hands, coming off more like smokey late night tunes of lost love and wasted life. Side two's got some more spiritual-oriented tunes – but again, done by Frank, with arrangements by Gordon Jenkins, these tunes come off with a lot less celebratory spirit than you'd expect. Titles include "The Christmas Waltz", "Mistletoe & Holly", "The Christmas Song", "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas", "It Came Upon A Midnight Clear", and "I'll Be Home For Christmas". Next is A Christmas Gift To You – Phil Spector's classic Christmas album – a swirling delight of 60s pop and soul numbers, still one of the greatest full Christmas LPs ever recorded! The whole thing is wonderful – a mix of soul, rock, and pop – all produced with that classic "wall of sound" style that made Phil Spector such an early production genius in the 60s! The music is from those magical times when boundary-busting art and craft were mixed perfectly with pop styles that anyone could instantly fall in love with – and titles include "Frosty The Snowman" by The Ronettes, "Here Comes Santa Claus" by Bob B Soxx & The Blue Jeans, "Marshmallow World" by Darlene Love, "Sleigh Ride" by The Ronnettes, "Winter Wonderland" by Darlene Love, "Santa Claus Is Comin To Town" by The Crystals, and "Silent Night" by Phil and other artists on the set! Next is Elvis Christmas Album – an early Holiday gem from Elvis Presley – a set that had RCA Records wisely rushing the young singer into the studio to cut a host of Christmas tunes – which ensured that Elvis would be spinning on the turntable for many seasons to come! Titles include "Here Comes Santa Claus", "Silent Night", "Blue Christmas", "White Christmas", and "Santa Bring My Baby Back". Next is Merry Christmas from Bing Crosby – which may well be THE Christmas album of the 20th century – a 50s issue of 40s singles cut by Der Bingle, packaged in a cover with a classic cover image that's ensured that the record stayed in print for dozens of Decembers in years to come! Given that Bing virtually owned Christmas on TV during the 50s, 60s, and 70s, the album's place in popular music is well-earned – and honestly, Bing's "aw shucks, I'm just reg'lar folks" sort of approach to these tunes really helped create a kind of common man secular side to the Holidays that forever transformed America's celebration of the season. Or maybe we're going to far with this one . . . But whatever the case, the album's a standard, and one we were certainly raised on. Titles include "Silver Bells", "Jingle Bells", "Silent Night", "White Christmas", "Adeste Fideles", "Faith Of Our Fathers", "I'll Be Home For Christmas", and "It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas". Last up is Ella Fitzgerald Wishes You A Swinging Christmas – a wonderful Holiday album that's stayed fresh for years! Ella's got a perfect style to interpret these numbers – working with Frank DeVol and Russ Garcia in a set of lightly jazzy versions of Christmas favorites like "Sleigh Ride", "Jingle Bells", "Winter Wonderland", "White Christmas", "Frosty The Snowman", and one of the best versions of "What Are You Doing New Years Eve" ever recorded!

Caetano VelosoSem Lenco Sem Documento – O Melhor De Caetano Veloso ... CD
Polygram (Brazil), Late 60s/1970s/Mid 80s. Used ... $2.99
Nice overstuffed "best of" compilation that features work by Veloso that spans from his early Tropicalia years to the stuff he did as a pseudo-new wave artist in the early 80s. 7 cuts alone are from the pivotal year of 1968 – including "Shy Moon", "Lua De Sao Jorge", "Superbacana", and "Soy Loco Por Ti America" – and others are from the mid and late 70s, like "Beleza Pura", "Trilhos Urbanos", "Odara", "O Leaozinho", and "Qualquer Coisa". Not all of this material is available on the other CDs we carry, and the set itself is a great way to begin to get into the work of Veloso, who we feel is one of the greatest musical artists of the late 20th century!

XUnder The Big Black Sun ... LP
Elektra, 1982. Near Mint- ... $11.99
A key part of the initial tremendous legacy of X – one of the greatest run of records that any group could ever hope for! This third set has the group honing and refining their sound even more – losing none of their roots in the LA hardcore scene, but also inflecting their sound with a complexity that none of their previous scenemates could match – a sense of musicianship that was never too polished, but always razor sharp – at a level that brought even more righteous power to their lyrics and completely unique songplay. The quartet are one of the greatest ever in rock and roll – and this album's a classic that transcends time and style – essential listening on a shortlist of the best guitar-based sounds of the late 20th century. Titles include "The Hungry Wolf", "Riding With Mary", "Under The Big Black Sun", "Blue Spark", "Because I Do", and "Motel Room In My Bed". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousBlack Fire New Spirits – Deep & Radical Jazz In The USA 1957 to 1982 ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 50s/1960s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 3LP ... $34.99 36.99
Deeply spiritual jazz from the American underground of the 20th century – music that sits in a perfect space between straight jazz and more avant garde material – always reaching out in this really soaring, searching sort of way – but never too outside or free! Rhythms are at the core of most of these numbers – often modal elements, with especially strong basslines – or earthy percussion with strong Afrocentric inspirations, recast here in the huge wave of jazz experimentation of the 60s and 70s! Most tracks are from those key decades, but he set also features some overlooked gems from the 80s too – and a good deal of these tracks are from albums we hardly ever see anymore these days. As usual, Soul Jazz has done a stunning job with the notes and package – dovetailing with their book of the same name – and tracks include "Second Line March" by David Lee, "Flashback Of Time" by Creative Arts Ensemble, "Chang Chang Chang" by Yusef Lateef, "Utopia & Visions" by Don Cherry, "It's A Trip" by Last Poets, "Universal Spiritual Revolt" by Tyrone Washington, "In The Moog" by Harold McKinney, "Spaces & Things" by Doug Hammond, "Tzaddi Vau (part 1)" by Pheeran Ak Laff, and "Dealin" by Richard Davis.

Fremeaux & Associates (France), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 3CD ... $19.99 29.98
A fantastic look at one of the biggest contributions that Cuba ever made to music in the 20th Century – the rise of the jam session and descarga scene in Havana right before the revolution – a moment that saw an already-great style get even better in the hands of a few key musicians! Afro-Cuban sounds were nothing new to that city, but as the 50s moved on, the players on the scene adopted lots of influences from American jazz – and were really opening up in ways that were as open and expressive as they were fiercely collaborative – moving past the idea of a tighter ensemble with a star leader, and instead bringing together smaller groups with soloists that really got lots of space to do their thing – as did the percussionists, who really drive the music here! Most of the tracks feature some sort of vocals, but also have plenty of standout solos too - and the set features a huge amount of tracks by Cachao in his prime, plus lots more by Julio Gutierrez, Walfredo De Los Reyes, Rolando Aquila, Fajaro, Nino Rivera, and Chico O'Farrill – served up here with a total of 55 tracks on 3CDs.

VariousFashion Records – Style & Fashion – A-Class Top Notch Hi Fi Sounds In Fine Style ... CD
Fashion/Soul Jazz (UK), 1980s/1990s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $18.99 22.99
An overdue look at London's Fashion Records label – an important reggae imprint that was to the British scene of the late 20th Century what Trojan was in the 70s! But Fashion also had a quality that did them one better – they recorded and issued work that originated in the UK – documenting a reggae scene that had grown to be as important as Kingston by that time – thanks to trans-Atlantic flows of vinyl, and a fair bit of immigration from the West Indies too! The music here is strongly in the styles that really exploded in London during the stretch – and early digital dancehall material is offset by sharp-edged jungle rhythms, and warmed up by some lover's rock too – but always with a quality that's earthy, and very close to the streets. The label was run out of the basement of the Dub Vendor record store, which gave them a great ear for changes in sound and styles – and they've got a fascinating story that's fully documented here in the notes, in best Soul Jazz fashion. Titles include "Let's Dub It Up" by Dee Sharp, "Dance Pon De Corner" by Papa Face featuring Red Man, "Shot Fe Bust (Marvellous Cain rmx)" by Poison Chang, "Wikkeda" by General Levy & Hard N Pure, "Played By This Ya Sound" by Bunny General, "You're Nicked" by Laurel & Hardy, "Rising To The Top" by Dee Sharp, "To The Bump" by Papa Face & Bionic Rhona, "As You See It" by Cutty Ranks, "Bubble With I" by Asher Senator, "Ruffest Gun Ark (DJ rap mix)" by Top Cat, "DJ Business" by Papa San, "You'll Never Need Somebody" by Janice Walker, "DJ Jamboree" by Papa Face with Keith Douglas, "Heat" by General Levy, and "Sweet Soul Rocking" by Carlton Lewis.

VariousJambu – E Os Miticos Sons Da Amazonia (with download) ... LP
Analog Africa (Germany), 1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $30.99 32.99
A mindblowing discovery of music from northern Brazil – not the more familiar sounds that you might know from Rio or Sao Paulo, but much rootsier grooves that were first forged up at the northern city of Belem! The city is a gateway to the Amazon, and also a crossroads too – blessed with a thriving economy for most of the 20th Century, which led to countless clubs and other entertainment venues – and the development of some unique Afro-Brazilian strands that were created from the city's criss-crossing of cultures! Almost all the tracks here are highly percussive – tight and fast, with the kind of energy you might hear in a batucada jam, but fused into a smaller combo mode – delivered in styles that came to be known as siria, carimbo, and lambada – the last of which is the earlier, better version, and not the trashy pop take that was forced on the global market at the end of the 80s. As always with Analog Africa, the package is way more than just a compilation of music – as the notes are fantastic, and get at the rich history and culture – with a 24 page booklet filled with notes, photos, and other images. A stone winner all the way through, and one of the most ear-opening compilations we've heard in awhile – with titles that include "Vamos Farrear" by Pinduca, "Carimbo Da Pimenta" by Messias Holanda", "A Misturada" by Os Muiraquitans, "Praia Do Algodoal" by Os Quentes De Terra Alta, "Lundun Da Yaya" by Grupo Da Pesada, "Maruda" by O Conjunto De Orlando Pereira, "Xango" by Magalhaes E Sua Guitarra, "Lambada Da Baleia" by Viera E Su Conjunto, "Meu Barquinho" by Janjao, and "Mambo Assanhado" by Verequete E O Conjunto Uirapuru.

VariousSocial Power Of Music (4CD & hardcover book) ... CD
Smithsonian Folkways, 1940s/1950s/1960s/1970s. New Copy 4CD ... $54.99 59.98
A fantastic little package – and one that may well have more meaning these days than ever before! The lavish set features a huge hardcover book – 124 pages of notes, photos, and other information – all put together in conjunction with a Smithsonian exhibition of the same name – which presents the undeniable power of music in the 20th century – themes of progress, politics, struggle, and achievement – spun out over a variety of different genres that include blues, folk, jazz, gospel, and a huge amount of global styles too! As you'd guess from the label, many of the tracks come from the rich holdings of the Folkways label – but other imprints have also been folded into the mix, which makes for a really fantastic assemblage of music. 4CDs feature over 80 titles in all – with work by Woody Guthrie, Joe Glazer, Rumel Fuentes, Sandoval Begay, Cantor Abraham Brun, The Old Harp Singers Of Eastern Tennessee, Pete Seeger, Strange Creek Singers, Inger Nielsen, Grupo Raiz, Caravan, Mikis Thedorakis, Chippewa Nation, Lester Bradley & Friends, Sam Brothers Five, Austin Pitre, John Littlehohn, Quetzel, Kristin Lems, and many others.

✨✧ VariousSpace Funk – Afro Futurist Electro Funk In Space 1976 to 1984 ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $18.99 22.99
Sun Ra was one of the first 20th Century artists to soar off in space, and George Clinton followed his lead with the Mothership in the 70s – and after that time, there was a surprisingly huge legacy of funk and soul artists who also headed for the cosmos – as you'll discover in this very unique set! The package is one of the deepest-digging soul collections we've ever heard from Soul Jazz – as most of the material here is pretty darn obscure – tracks that are from farther in the hinterlands of American soul at the end of the 70s and start of the 80s – and which are heavy on the sort of electrified touches it must have taken to send a funky spaceship out into the stratosphere! Many of these cuts have a sweet electro soul groove, which includes some nice keyboards and even a bit of vocoder work too – while others have a more old school funk approach, but still plenty of cosmic vibes in the mix. Titles include "Supersonic Space Lady" by Ernest Flippin II, "Make It Good To Me Baby" by Copperfield, "Break Out" by Rodney Stepp, "Computer Funk" by Ose, "Fly Guy & The Unemployed" by Ramsey 2C/3D, "Fee Fi Fo Fum" by Leo, "Bionic Funk" by Santiago, "Space Invaders" by Solaris, "Computer Power" by Jamie Jupitor, "Plastic" by Juju & The Space Rangers, and "Computer Games" by Frank Cornelius.
