✨✧ Alan VegaSaturn Strip (yellow vinyl pressing) ... LP
Elektra/Real Gone, 1983. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Post-Suicide work from Alan Vega, and a set that's got a surprisingly tuneful quality at times – while still making the best of that completely unique voice that Vega brought to his famous collaborations with Martin Rev! Instead of Rev, the set actually features Ric Ocasek on keyboards, and also production – and we're stunned at how much Ocasek is willing to get into Vega's groove, instead of push him into more pop-oriented territory – so that the record is way colder, cooler, and groovier than anything The Cars would ever give the world at the time! Vega's still got a great punky edge in his vocals, which come through wonderfully – and titles include "Kid Congo", "Video Babe", "Saturn Drive", "Goodbye Darling", "Je T'Adore", "Angel", and "Wipeout Beat". LP, Vinyl record album

SuicideFirst Rehearsal Tapes ... LP
Superior Viaduct, 1975. New Copy ... $20.99
The earliest sounds ever recorded by Suicide – music that even pre-dates their monumental debut album from 1977 – but which has an equally fuzzy, freaky vibe overall! The music here is maybe slightly more mellow – not as confrontational as the stance the duo would take a few years later, but still completely revolutionary – and forged out of the same stark sonic melange of the vocals of Alan Vega and electronics of Martin Rev – used brilliantly throughout, in ways that are completely different from the overblown qualities of so much of the mid 70s mainstream! You'll definitely hear a few echoes of later songs in the mix here, but most of the music stands strongly on its own – as maybe kind of the first flowering of genius from Suicide – and, given their all-too-small catalog, an important addition to their legacy. Titles include "New City", "Do It Nice", "Space Blue Bamboo", "Spaceship", "Sneakin Around", "Tough Guy", "A-Man", and "Creature Feature". LP, Vinyl record album

SuicideSurrender – A Collection ... CD
Mute, Late 70s/1980s/1990s/Early 2000s. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
Suicide may be one of the coolest groups of all time – at least as one to emerge from the New York scene at the end of the 70s – where even amidst the giants of the time, they had a sound that was unlike anything else! The duo of Alan Vega and Martin Rev mixed broken electronics with plenty of fuzz and these really spooky vocals – all at a level that was completely punk, but unlike anything punk at all – almost as if they were working some deconstructivist magic on all the prog electronic experiments of the early 70s, ripping them down to their core, and making something really dark and spooky in the process! And although the pair are best known for their groundbreaking debut album, they kept making great tracks over the years – a number of which are included here in newly remastered versions that sparkle even more than before – a collection of cuts that really offers a great picture of the group, along with laudatory notes from Henry Rollins. A big highlight of the set is an early version of "Frankie Teardrop" with different lyrics – and other titles include "Mr Ray", "Surrender", "Ghost Rider", "Touch Me", "Dream Baby Dream", "Diamonds Fur Coat Champagne", "Dominic Christ", "Radiation", "Dachau Disney Disco", "Wrong Decisions", "Why Be Blue", "Rocket USA", and "Harlem".

Gerardo IacoucciLe Avventura ... LP
Deneb/Finders Keepers (UK), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 24.99
The masterpiece by one of the most obscure artists in the Italian sound library scene of the early 70s – music that easily moves from funky sounds to cosmic styles to jazzy moments and beyond – sometimes within the space of a single tune! Gerardo Iacoucci's music is a huge change from the kind more facile sound library material coming out of the UK – the sorts of short, catchy songs designed for easy use in commercials or TV – and instead, the work here is richly conceived and presented, with a new sort of surprise at each track on the record – and just the right sort of balance to appeal to fans of both groovy and more wild sound library material. Titles include "Violenza", "Il Cobra", "Produzione Industriale", "La Caverna", "Citta Del Capo", "Zombie", "From Tokyo To Las Vegas", and "Assenza Di Gravita". LP, Vinyl record album

Tata VegaFull Speed Ahead (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Tamla/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1976. New Copy ... $12.99 18.99
A great debut from Tata Vega – her first album for Motown, and a sparkling soul effort – recorded after an early career stretch with some headier crossover groups! Vega's got a positive, upbeat feel on the record that's mighty nice – a sort of energy that really draws from her roots, but points things in a sparkling new direction – still mostly sticking in mature soul modes, and avoiding any of the easier disco pitfalls that might have been taken at the time! Al Johnson handles the arrangements – with the same sort of balance of smooth and mature styles he brought to his own great records – a balance that works perfectly for Tata, as it allows her to work the full, wide range of her vocals, yet without ever going too far to end up as a cliche. Titles include "Try Love From The Inside", "Full Speed Ahead", "Keep It Coming", "Just As Long As There Is You", "Just When Things Are Getting Good", and "Music In My Heart". CD features 3 bonus tracks – "Full Speed Ahead (disco version)", and the cuts "Sunshine Man" and "Soul Eyes", both recorded with Tata's old group, Earthquire! CD

✨✧ EsperantoVegas ... LP
Favorite (France), 1981. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A rare jazzy set from the Venezuelan scene at the start of the 80s – but a record that's got a lot more of the warm soulful glow of the best Fantasy Records productions in the Bay Area a few years before – sophisticated in style, but also very down to earth – and with a lot of nice R&B-tinged elements amidst the jazz-based instrumentation! Some cuts are instrumental jazz funk, but there's also a bit of vocals at points – a balance that almost echoes some of the strongest work from Wayne Henderson and the At-Home Productions team. Titles include "Hollywood", "Kenny's Place", "Kailua", "Tell Me This Is Love", "Love Crusader", "Elle Est Tres Ellegant", and "Wishful Thinkin". LP, Vinyl record album
