Bobby Wright (Abu Talib)Blood Of An American/Everyone Should Have His Day (with zine) ... 7-inch
Melodies International, Late 70s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $11.99
Two beautiful tunes from Bobby Wright, both recorded in the mid 70s with a subtle righteous power that's taken many years for the rest of the world to fully appreciate! "Blood Of An American" is a slow-moving track that mostly features the lead vocals over slow-drifting guitar – presenting a message that's as poetic as it is political – almost in Terry Callier territory, but even more intimate. "Everyone Should Have Its Day" follows in a very similar style – uplifting, but blue-tinged too – and this limited reissue single comes with a 16 page zine that features lots of information on Wright and his later years as Abu Talib. 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Comes with a 16 page Melodies International zine!)

Johnny PateBucktown – Original Soundtrack ... LP
American International, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99 15.98
A funky treasure – finally unleashed! Bucktown was one of the best of the mid 70s indie blacksploitation films – thanks to some great starring work from Fred Williamson and Pam Grier – but for years, the soundtrack's never been available as an individual release. Now, this tasty heavy-vinyl set makes all the film's wonderful grooves finally available – presented in a great style that includes all the shorter moodier bits, the fuller longer funky tracks, and even a bit of sound effects and dialogue! The music was penned and conducted by Johnny Pate – of Shaft In Africa and Brother On The Run fame – and the tunes are a great blend of funky soundtrack styles that include full on big band, sparer snapping instrumentals, and even a few nice tunes with great use of moog! Titles include "Chase", "Stepping", "Bar Fly", "Check In", "Freeze", "Love Theme", "Call It In", "Sneaking It In", and "Spin". LP, Vinyl record album

Hans Koller, Benny Bailey, Sahib Shihab, & OthersInternational Jazz Workshop ... LP
EmArcy, Mid 60s. Very Good ... $16.99
A great one – and the kind of European jazz album that kicks like a Clarke/Boland Big Band album! Hans Koller directs a large-scale swinging big band of some of the best European and American expatriot players of the time – like Sahib Shihab, Benny Bailey, Donald Byrd, Johnny Griffin, and Albert Mangelsdorff – and the set screams with intense solos, and a tight groove that pushes past any of the cliches you could imagine for a set like this. One of the things that makes the session great is some groovy organ, played by Infried Hoffman, the German player who was in Klaus Doldinger's early group. Doldinger's also on here, and his sound is way better than on his 70's work. Titles include "Hip Hit", "Revelation", "Conversation", "Knodel-Waltzer", and "Blazy Bones Revisited". LP, Vinyl record album
(Gray label pressing with deep groove.)

✨✧ Edwin Astley/Tony CrombieInternational Detective/Man From Interpol ... CD
El (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A pair of cool British TV soundtracks – both of which feature an action jazz style to rival the best early work of Henry Mancini for the television screen! First up is lost spy soundtrack work from the British composer Edwin Astley – best known for his work on The Saint and Danger Man, but also sounding pretty darn great on the earlier program International Detective! The feel here is similar to some of Astley's better-known work – a more dramatic take on the crime jazz used on American TV in the late 50s – one that retains much of the instrumental elements of the sound, especially the well-placed use of saxes – but which also uses larger orchestrations to flesh out the music nicely, creating a stronger, more cinematic feel. The set features a total of 21 tracks from this short-lived show – and titles include "International Detective", "Murder Strip", "Theme For Larceny", "Night Patrol", "The Badge", "Manhunt", "Shock Tactics", "Murder Chase", and "Concerto In Law". Next is Man From Interpol – one of the best spy soundtracks we've ever heard – and one of the only scores we've ever seen from Brit jazz drummer Tony Crombie! The work was done a few years before Barry's famous Bond scores – but it's got a very similar feel, with lots of driving themes that make the best use of brazen horns, fast jazz, and beat-styled rhythms that crackle throughout the set. Most titles are pretty short, but really great – and nearly all of them feature some extremely strong jazz musicianship, in the manner of that used on the best American soundtracks by Mancini at the time! Titles include "Panic Station", "Interpol Cha Cha Cha", "Interpol Chase", "Samba De Janeiro", and "Blues Macabre". CD

Jorge BenBen ... CD
Philips (Brazil), 1972. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A stunner of a record from the mighty Jorge Ben – and a record that catapulted the Brazilian singer to international fame at the time! Ben had already been making magic for almost a decade down in Brazil – and his compositions and grooves left an undeniable impact on the scene in the post-bossa years – but this album has Jorge really emerging as the global soul star he was destined to be – from his powerful stare on the cover, right down to the grit in the grooves! The sound here is a refinement of the samba soul mode that Ben had been brewing up from the late 60s onward – a skittish mix of older samba elements, American soul, and some slight fuller production that really comes into its own here – mixing all the acoustic elements at the core with just a slight electric flourish, but never losing its edge in the process – all to provide Jorge with a sublime backdrop for his really amazing vocals. The set's a monument in funky Brazilian soul – and it includes the huge hit "Taj Mahal", which still sounds great, even after all these years – plus loads of other gems that include "O Circo Chegou", "Domingo 23", "Fio Maravilha", "Paz E Arroz", "Morre O Burro Fico O Homem", and "Que Nega E Essa". A gem all the way through – and a record we'd never part with! CD
(Out of print Brazilian pressing.)

Walter Gavitt FergusonLegendary Tape Recordings Vol 2 – The King Of Calypso Limonense ... LP
Bongo Joe (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $26.99
Not the kind of calypso that was issued by the big American labels in the 50s – and instead, sounds that have a sound, style, and overall approach that's maybe a lot more similar to American blues from the rural scene! The tracks here are all pulled from the personal archive of Walter Gavitt Ferguson – recorded mostly at his home, on cassette, over the space of many years in which Ferguson was growing in international fame, even while never leaving the space of his island. Recording quality is nice and raw – of the sort you'd be more likely to hear from rural Mississippi or Georgia bluesmen in some 60s ethnographic project – and the guitar phrasing is as biting as Walter's delivery of the lyrics. Titles on this second volume include "Not A Pugilist", "Roberto Tour", "You Cannot Bathe A Puss", "Hoorah For Paula", "Lock Me Up Neighbour", "One Pants Tearing Off", "Gal Must Be Take Me For A Fool", and "All Going Up To Glory".

Norton, 1960s. New Copy ... $13.99
Buried treasures from artist, producer, arranger, promoter, raconteur, and most entertaining character Kim Fowley– fiery pre garage, fuzzed out surf styled numbers, raw novelty pop, and storming groovers all around – with some of Kim's own headliner credits plus tunes by Gamblers, Cover Girls, Daywins, Bonnie And The Treasures, Hollywood Argyles, US Rockets and more! This prime early pulp from Mr Fowley is wholly excellent, and a prime 60s nuggets, some previously unreleased, and others are singles put out with the Arwin, Last Chance, American International, Corby and other labels. A stellar Volume 2 from Norton! Titles include "Geronimo" by Renegades, "Big Sur, Bear Mountain, Ciro's, Filip Side, Prostest Song" by Kim Fowley, "Teen Machine" by Ramblers, "Gone But Not Forgotten" by Cover Girls, "Bounty Hunter" by Donnie And The Outcasts, "Daddy Said" by Althea And The Memories, "Gone" by Rituals and more. 16 tracks in all.

A decade of Kim Fowley produced, arranged and recorded madness – proto garage, sleazy surf styled rumbles, pulpy vocal pop, and fuzzy tunes galore – some credited to Kim Fowley and more savage tunes from Bruce & Jerry, Renegades, Mo And Jo, Blue Bells, Althea And The Memories and more! It's fantastic stuff, some never before issued, and rare singles for labels and imprints like Kimco, Alsand, Arwin and American International. Seedy rockers galore!

✨✧ Strawberry Alarm Clock/Storybook/SeedsPsych-Out ... LP
Sidewalk, 1968. Sealed ... $39.99
Hip, hazy Sunset Strip psych tunes from the mid 60s American International exploitation flick Psych-Out – that notorious flick starring Susan Strasberg, Dean Stockwell, Bruce Dern and Jack Nicholson as Stoney! Totally killer stuff from The Seeds, trippier, flute-y and organ washed grooves from Strawberry Alarm Clock and thematically titled numbers from The Storybook! Includes "The Pretty Song From Psych-Out" , "Psych-Out Sanctorum", "The Love Children" and "Psych-Out" by The Storybook – plus "Rainy Day Mushroom Pillow" and "The World's On Fire" by Strawberry Alarm Clock, "Two Fingers Pointed At You" by The Seeds and the crazy, brazen "Purple Haze" ripoff "Ashbury Wednesday" credited to Boenzee Cryque – performed by Jack Nicholson's group in the flick! This CD edition from Reel Time has a bonus version of "The Pretty Song From Psych-Out" – this one by The Strawberry Alarm Clock! LP, Vinyl record album

13th Floor ElevatorsEaster Everywhere (180 gram pressing) ... LP
International Artists, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99
Raw early genius from the 13th Floor Elevators – cut back at a time when the Texas combo were one of the hippest things going in the late 60s American underground! There's lots of sounds here that other cats would copy over the decades – but the record has a gritty brilliance that's way better than any of its many imitators – that kind of unique burst of new ideas and young energy that made psych so wonderful when it first emerged in remarkable moments like this! Roky Erickson is wonderful – and the record will definitely illustrate his genius way better than any later efforts to bear his own name in the lead – and the production is just the right blend of studio tricks and homegrown oddness to make the whole thing electrified throughout. Tracks include "Slip Inside This House", "Slide Machine", "Dust", "Earthquake", "Levitation", "Postures", "Baby Blue", and "Nobody To Love". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Modern Jazz QuartetConcorde ... LP
Prestige, 1955. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Even at this early point in their career, the Modern Jazz Quartet were plenty proud of their relation to and reception in Paris – almost rubbing their international fame in the faces of other American combos with the title and cover of this record! The set's still got the quartet at their crisp early best – before any of the sometimes too academic or too serious tones of later sides – and tracks are mostly shortish, ringing out with especially nice vibes from Milt Jackson. Titles include an early reading of the title cut "Concorde", plus an extended "Gershwin Medley", and the tracks "All Of You", "I'll Remember April", "Softly As In A Morning Sunrise", and "Ralph's New Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

The record's got a cool 60s-styled cover – and is filled with music to match, too – played by an international duo who've got a great ear for the best American modes of a few decades back! The style is lean enough to echo 60s rock instrumental modes, but also has some fuller feelings that rival the best soundtrack moments of the period too – especially the hipper, jazzier side of the spectrum! Twangy guitar and soulful Hammond trade spots in the lead on most numbers – and titles include "Mummy Walk", "The Freddie (part 1)", "Love Goddess", "Budapest Incident", "Girl From Acapulco", "Theme From Stella Interstellar", "Robot A Go Go", and "Something For Johnny".

Shout Factory, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A massive batch of righteous soul – plus sound bites and calls to action by some of the most pivotal voices of the era! This collection aims to be the soundtrack of an era that called for a revolution, and if the movement didn't wholly ingratiate into American culture, the passion and the music certainly did! The set features well known numbers mixed with some relatively lesser known numbers, together with some of the most fiery dialogue from icons of the Black Power movement. Tracks include "You're The Man" (parts I & II) by Marvin Gaye, "Let's Clean Up The Ghetto" by Philadelphia International All Stars, "Right On" by Sons Of Slum, "Tell It Like It Is" by SOUL, "Give The People What They Want" by the O'Jays, "Blackenized" by Hank Ballard, "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised by Gil Scott-Heron, "My People. . .Hold On" by Eddie Kendricks, "I Am Somebody" (Part 2) by Johnnie Taylor, "We Got More Soul" by Dyke & The Blazers and tons more, plus sound bites by Huey Newton, Kathleen Cleaver, Stokely Carmichael, H Rap Brown and Malcolm X. 38 tracks on two CDs!

✨✧ VariousNigeria Soul Power 70 – Afro Funk, Afro Rock, Afro Disco ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic collection of lesser-known gems from the 70s scene in Nigeria – music that's a great counterpart to better-remembered Afro Funk and soul from international giants like Fela Kuti and King Sunny Ade! This set digs deep, and is a nicelly expanded version of a set that Soul Jazz issued years back as a limited edition 7" single box for Record Store Day – presented here with more music, and a detailed set of notes – really getting at the special scene that was taking place in Nigeria at the time, as the nation was rising to the top of the African scene with a fantastic criss-crossing of musical modes! There's definitely plenty of the funk promised in the title, and the "rock" is usually of the funky kind with great guitar work – and a few later cuts even pick up the pace with a bit of disco, but more in the fast-funk mode, and hardly the slick stuff of the American scene. Titles include "Africans Must Unite" and "Shake Hands" by Geraldo Pino, "We'll Get Home" by The Wings, "E Ye Ika Se" by Alhagi Prof Kollington Ayinala, "Kassa Kpa Sama Kpa" by Colomach, "Beware" by MFB, "You Are The One" by Tony Grey & The Ozimba Messengers, "Single Boy" by The Wings, "Sugar Baby" by Don Bruce & The Angels", "Power To The People" by Geraldo Pino, "Igba Alusi" by Original Wings, "Dance Of The Elephants" by Sonny Okosunds Ozziddi, and "Oba Erediauwa I" by Sonny Okosuns.

✨✧ Joe McPheeVariations On A Blue Line – Round Midnight ... CD
Hat Hut/Corbett vs. Dempsey, 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Seminal solo work from the great Joe McPhee – and a crucial album in linking the American and European undergrounds of the 70s! Joe's working alone here – on soprano sax and tenor – and getting some amazing sounds out of both horns – the kind of post-musical, highly-textural elements that are right at home in the European concert setting of the recording. The album was a legendary start to Hat Art – and to the international fame of McPhee – and side one features an extended tenor performance on the original composition "Beanstalk", and side two features tenor again on "Variations On A Blue Line", then soprano on "Motian Studies", as well as "Round Midnight" – played by Joe with just the right sort of soul to round out the record!

✨✧ StormersLovers Song ... CD
Tabansi/PMG (Austria), 1981. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The Stormers are a group who rose from the ashes of the legendary Lagos funk combo Aktion – and they step out here with a really storming sound that definitely earns them their name! The groove is funk of the tightest form possible – especially for the start of the 80s – and the four piece combo seem to take all the best elements from the bigger American funk ensembles, then fuse them down to a wickedly sharp core – with basslines, guitar, and keyboards all working with an amazing edge – and none of the too-commercial elements that might have been showing up on the US scene at the time! Vocals are in English – which should have made this record a crossover international funk hit – and the whole thing can kick the ass of just about any early 80s funk album on the planet. Titles include "Sexy Woman", "Atlantic Breeze", "Be A Lover", "Super D Jay", and "Love Or Money". CD
