Beat Konducta (Madlib)Beat Konducta Vol 1 – Movie Scenes ... LP
Stones Throw, 2005. New Copy ... $16.99 17.99
A platter of Madlib beats – the first in a series of instrumental hip hop from 'Lib's Beat Konducta (formerly Beat Conductor) moniker! Madlib's production work has always had a filmic groove, and this set collects and assembles the most cinematic of said beats into an (unsurprisingly) incredible 2-sided piece. The soundscapes really kind of run the gamut of his hip hop styles – always soulful, and always funky, whether he's rocking a stone funk or an electro-modeled groove. Honestly, how much longer is it going to take for the mainstream to finally catch up with this genius!?! Tracks include "The Comeback (Madlib)", "The Payback (Gotta)", "Face The Sun (Africa)", "Stax (Strings)", "Left On Silverlake (Ride)", "Offbeat (Grooves)","Pyramids (Change)", "Eternal Broadcaster (Authentic)" and more!

✨✧ Beat Konducta (Madlib)Beat Konducta Vol 3 – Beat Konducta In India ... LP
Stones Throw, 2007. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Hazy beatcraft steeped in Indian soundtrack style funk, strings and percussion from the indefatigable Madlib – Volume 3 in the increasingly adventurous and conceptual outings of the Beat Konducta! This time out Madlib, er, Beat Konducta is conducting beats, strings & things from India and/or otherwise East – but the way in which the beats bluntly thump is quintessential Madlib – you know it and love it from the first beat! 'Lib really breathes fresh life into this approach – going miles deeper than anyone out there doing the Bollywood-hip hop hybrid – coming up with a sound all his own. Masterful! "Onthanewthing", "Indian Deli", "Rumble", "Dancing Girls Theme", "Piano Garden", "Dark Alley Incidental Music", "Early Party", "Fifth Chant", "The Rip Off (Scene 3)", and "Sitar Ride".

King Bucknor & His Afrodisk Beat OrganisationKatakata (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Shanu Olu/Hot Casa (France), Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
A really tremendous record from the Lagos scene of the 70s – a set that's completely sharp from beginning to end, and which has the same sort of side-long jamming that you'd find on the best records by Fela Kuti at the time! King Bucknor's billed as "The Black Isaiah Of Africa" – and he's definitely got a strong spiritual core in his message – which is carried out in lyrics that begin to flow only after the Afrodisk Beat Organisation get things moving – really kicking up the groove with fast-riffing and very funky guitar over basslines that bubble along at a mighty quick pace – and which also get these completely great tenor solos from Dele Okonkwo, a player we'd like to know more. The set features two long tracks – "Soyoyo" and "Katakata" – both completely superb! LP, Vinyl record album

Dos Santos Anti-Beat OrquestaCafeteando/Camino Infernal/Phantom Weight ... 7-inch
Electric Cowbell, 2017. Near Mint- ... $7.99
A sweetly-burning organ line kicks this one off – folding back again and again on itself, in some minimalist wave – while the group's very lively Latin percussion builds and builds, as a trombone comes in for a great lead line – and chorus vocals make the whole thing really soar! The flipside's got an echoey guitar line on "Camino Infernal" – almost surf-like – but mixed with lots more percussion, and relayed in a bit of distorted production – before "Phantom Weight" takes over, as more of a hard-driving bit of funk overall! 7-inch, Vinyl record

English BeatSpecial Beat Service ... LP
IRS, 1982. Near Mint- ... $11.99
The third album from The English Beat and another step further away from their rougher roots – which may not have sat well with strident fans of their earlier, punchier ska revival sounds – but it stands up today as one of the most timeless leftfield pop albums of the early 80s! The Beat never discarded their calypso, ska, rocksteady inspirations, they simply expanded upon them – and there's plenty of hooky, catchy songcraft on Special Beat Service – as well as the uncommonly soulful pop of songs like "Save It For Later"! Other tracks include "I Confess", "Jeanette", "Sorry", "Sole Salvation", "She's Going", "End OF The Party", "Ackee 1 2 3" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Colemine, 2018. New Copy ... $5.99
This is the first we've ever heard of Mestizo Beat – and we hope we'll be hearing a lot more in the future! "Featherbed Lane" has a lot harder edge than you'd expect from the title – early 70s Latin funk with a strong flute part upfront – almost like some of the funky work from Mauricio Smith, but with the sax and guitar taking the solo! "Handcuffed To The Shovel" is 70s funk too, but with maybe more of a Nigerian vibe – echoes of Fela, but tightened up into a shorter, punchier groove! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Toshiaki Yokota & Beat GenerationFlute Adventure ... CD
King (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $16.99
A definite flute adventure from Japanese reedman Toshiaki Yokota – one that's got some wonderfully trippy elements, in the best spirit of some of the most groundbreaking MPS sessions at the end of the 60s! Yokota plays a variety of flutes, and he's backed by electric guitar, bass, and plenty of percussion – often used in rootsy and rhythmic ways that make for plenty of great groovers on the set. There's a bit of a Latin influence at the bottom, but not in Toshiaki's playing – because that's often light and airy, floating over the top of the heavier rhythms with a great sense of counterpoint – making for a really great contrast of modes! Music on a few tracks is by The Beat Generation combo, and the album also features some great bossa covers too – versions of "Reza", "Orfeu Negro", and "Samba De Orfeu" – alongside original tunes "Ending Samba", "Cimmerie", and "Nuit De L'Enfer".

✨✧ VariousLe Beat Bespoke Vol 7 – Tailor Made Cuts Compiled By Rob Bailey ... LP
Detour (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic collection of funky mod and psych tracks from the great Rob Bailey – the man who's steered us through a handful of other wonderful compilations over the years, and won our undying respect in the process! Rob's choices are quite far from the obvious – and are made up from a selection of ultra-rare singles that maybe start in the grooviest freakbeat or garage modes of the mid 60s – but then quickly step out in more expansive styles, too – often with a full-on fuzzy guitar in the lead, and some really romping rhythms at the core. The whole thing's a mindblower right from the very first track – and titles include "No One Knows The Day" by Paragraph Music, "Face The New Day" by The Sound Track, "Polka Dotted Eyes" by The Snaps, "If I Didn't Love You Girl" by Travis Pike's Tea Party, "Situation Sad" by Finnigans Wake, "Won't You Say Yes To Me Girl" by Chuck Conlon, "Can't Tell You" by The Fabulous Depressions, "Norwegian Skies" by Bill Euker, "He Means So Much To Me" by Marilyn Mattson, and "Such A Good Thing" by The Showmen.

Brilliant work! Would music ever be this great again? We're hard pressed to think so. Trevor Horn, fresh from his vamped-up work with Yes, hits the beat box with the Dudley, Horn, and Jeczalik team, and comes up with these crossover instrumental tunes that took a hip hop groove to the next level, shoved together sheets of sound and noises, and probably influenced the sound of 95% of TV commercials in the 90s! 12-inch, Vinyl record

A slammin' LP of "jazz meets percussion", hosted by the great Art Blakey, and featuring jazz players like Curtis Fuller, Yusef Lateef, and Ahmed Abdul-Malik – plus a host of percussionists that include Solomon Ilori, Montego Joe, Chief Bey, and Garvin Masseaux. Blakey skirts nicely between the two camps, and although the record probably has more of an Afro-percussion feel than a jazz one, Lateef and Fuller blow through the mix with some nice nice solos. Titles include "Tobi Ilu", "Love, The Mystery Of", and "Obirin African". CD

BlondieEat To The Beat ... LP
Chrysalis, 1979. Very Good ... $6.99
Blondie had a lot to live up to after Parallel Lines, but they pulled it off here – Eat To The Beat is another classic! Downtown cool, a strong sense of pop history and tight production by Mike Chapman make for a really distinct sound on this one. Standouts include the excellent opener "Dreaming" (one of the finest Harry/Stein songs ever, if you ask us), the punky title track, "Union City Blue" and "Accidents Never Happen", and while Blondie albums are by nature hit-and-miss given the fearless mish-mash of styles they always brought in, the whole thing is pretty great! Other tracks include "Shayla", "Die Young Stay Pretty" and "Living In The Real World". LP, Vinyl record album

Four Flies (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy (pic cover)... $19.99
Two sweet funky tracks from Braen & Raskovich – a mysterious studio duo that features some extra-heavy drums from Giuliano Sorgini! The drums alone here are great – but they're also topped by a weir spooky keyboard that's billed as a "Hammond C3" on the cover – something that we're not sure is a typo or not – but which makes these wonderfully weird, thin lines on both tracks! Alessandro Alessandroni plays guitar and bass – the latter with a nicely heavy groove! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Brother Dan All StarsLet's Catch The Beat (180 gram orange vinyl pressing) ... LP
Trojan/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
A classic album from the late 60s run of Trojan producer Dandy – working here under the guise of Brother Dan All-Stars – with a lineup that features some secret help from the rest of the Trojan scene! The groove is mostly rocksteady, with the strongly soulful current that Dandy brought to his own records too – and there's a few points in which the rhythms actually crackle with a slight current of funk – in a way that shows the Transatlantic appeal of the work that Dan was doing at the time! Titles include "The Bunk", "Freedom", "Dream", "Lee's Farewell", "One More Dance", "Mello Music", "Life Can Be Beautiful", "Everybody Feel Good", and "Since I Met You Baby". LP, Vinyl record album

Conspiracy International/Mute, 1985. New Copy (reissue)... $20.99 22.98
Seminal solo sounds from Chris Carter – best known for his work with Cosey Fanni Tutti, and as a core member of Throbbing Gristle – out here in slightly different territory on his own! Chris follows the spare electronics of his work with Cosey – and some of the tracks definitely have the "beat" promised in the title – but at a level that's nicely subtle, and never sacrifices the overall sonic complexity for the sake of a groove! The record's a very early variant of modes that would later be handled less-skillfully by the end of the decade by so many others – and sounds much better here in the hands of one of the originators – on titles that include "Mondo B", "Moonlight", "Real Life", "Noevil", "Nobadhairdo", and "Beyond Temptation". And be warned – the cover says "this record contains subliminals"! LP, Vinyl record album

Cipo's group has a more unusual sound than most, and if the picture of the frying pan on the cover with the drums and shakers can be believed, they use instruments from a pretty wide range! Titles include "Implorar", "General Da Banda", "Eu Brinco", "Recordar", and "Cai, Cai". LP, Vinyl record album

Ray ColumbusNow You Shake – The Definitive Beat, R&B, Pop, & Psych Recordings 1963 to 1969 ... CD
RPM (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $6.99 13.99
A great collection of work from Ray Columbus – a New Zealand rocker of mid 60s vintage, but one who works here with mod sounds to rival much bigger names in London at the time! The collection begins with a core set of work by Ray Columbus & The Invaders – a super-sharp combo who have this sense of energy and fire that's a bit like Paul Revere & The Raiders, but more tuned towards beat group sounds – boundless energy that makes the rest of the combo a perfect fit for Ray's spirited lead vocals. The set then moves into solo material that Columbus recorded on his own, and with groups The Challenge, The Art Collection, and Fire – all with stylistic shifts that follow some of the British forays into trippier sounds after the initial beat boom – or some more compelling, more sophisticated material that Columbus really carries off well as a solo act. Titles include "She's A Mod", "I'm Finding Out", "She's Back Again", "Till We Kissed", "We Want A Beat", "In Memory Of Today", "Happy In A Sad Kind Of Way", "Los Angeles", "I'm Good For You", "Polka Dot Resistance", "Kick Me", and "East Pinkerton Street".

Obscure and pulpy surf rock instrumentals with some surprisingly searing guitar sound from Calvin Cool & The Surf Knobs – with a bigger sound than the typical period exploitation quickie! Surfer's Beat is heavy with bleating sax, piano, organ and hard hitting drums underneath the guitars. What really makes this weird little record a joy is that guitar tone – a razor sharp, loud one that's clearly modeled after Link Wray's scary works of genius – but the chops on display all around are pretty meaty.

KPM/Be With (UK), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
Very short themes from these two giants of the Brit sound library scene – some of them funky, some of sweet, all of them pretty darn great! Many numbers have a very stark, spare approach – one drum pattern, a slightly more complicated bassline, then more creative work on keyboards or guitar – all used in these ways that echo with the grooviest qualities of late 60s British TV and broadcasting – which is no surprise, given that most of these tracks were geared towards those settings! Side one is collaborative work between Alan Hawkshaw and Keith Mansfield, and side two is all Mansfield on his own – with titles that include "Funky Chase", "Funky Link 1", "Teenage Suspense", "The Busy Scene", "The Passing Scene", "The Brisk Scene", "The Action Scene", "Scene Link 6", and "Funky Fanfare" – done with some mighty nice organ!

Keyboards are in the lead on most numbers – although they get lots of support from the beats promised in the title – as Fender Rhodes, clavinet, and other keyboards soar out in a range of modes that even includes a few moogy moments that are especially nice! Instrumentation is lean overall, although still with all that strong sense of arrangement that can make even larger groups from these golden British years so great. Lots of funky instrumentals throughout – with titles that include "Strike", "Down Home", "Thrust", "Snatch", "Trip Wire", "Overtone", "Smooth", "Long Line", "Throng", and "Orgy".

Rhino/Word Beat, 1959. Used ... $6.99
A beautifully vivid set from Jack Kerouac – one that has him reading his own music set to spare piano accompaniment by Steve Allen – most of which was improvised for the set! The pairing of Kerouac and Allen seems an unlikely one, but it really works well here – as Jack's quite relaxed in the studio, and really reads with a bit more feeling than usual – really put at ease by Allen's surprisingly great piano lines, which never try to dominate, and mostly just tinkle lightly behind Kerouac's recitations. Most numbers are short, and titles include "October In The Railroad Earth", "Deadbelly", "McDougal Street Blues", "I'd Rather Be Thin Than Famous", "Charlie Parker", "Dave Brubeck", and "The Sounds of the Universe Coming in My Window".

Sergio MendesSwinger From Rio/Beat Of Brazil ... CD
Atlantic/Collectables, 1966/1967. Used ... $8.99
Here's a reissue we never thought we'd see in the US! The folks at Collectables have put together 2 of Sergio Mendes' rarest, and earliest, albums – both of which were released by Atlantic in the mid 60's, but recorded earlier. Swinger From Rio was a jazz-oriented session, recorded in New York with a crack band of American players, like Art Farmer, Hubert Laws, and Phil Woods – plus guest appearances by Antonio Carlos Jobim and Chico De Souza. The groove here is mostly bossa instrumental, and titles include "Maria Moita", "Primavera", "Pau Brazil", "Batida Diferente", "Sambinha Bossa Nova", and "The Dreamer". Beat Of Brazil continues the same sort of bossa jazz groove, but the session was recorded in Brazil, and was originally issued by Philips under the name of Sergio Mendes & Bossa Rio (his early sextet group). Titles on that one include "Nana", "Noa Noa", "Neurotico", "Primitivo", and "Coisa No 2". The whole CD's a double-length bossa jazz groove party, and it's done up in a nicer format than the usual Collectables release. What a deal! CD

Ostensibly another West Side Story pop ripoff album, this is actually a strong album of Latin tracks that uses the popularity of the musical to draw a parallel with the "west side" grooves of the New York Latin scene. The album includes a small amount of covers from the musical, but also some nice originals by Tito, like "West Side Beat", "Hablame Mi Amor", and "Negras Cenizas". Other titles include "Matrimonio Feliz", "Escandalo", and "Vuela La Paloma". LP, Vinyl record album

Santa Maria RomitelliAldo E Ulla/Beat Del Panfilo ... 7-inch
Four Flies (Italy), 1969. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $19.99
Two very groovy tracks from the score to the film Top Sensation – both of them great! "Aldo E Ulla" has snapping drums and this very cool organ – moving between melody and this cool squishy sound across the keyboard – all in a way that reminds us of the great use of the instrument by Piero Piccioni! "Beat Del Panfilo" is fuller and funkier – even harder drums that romp along nicely, while a fuller horn section blasts out majestically with a cool mod groove! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Zoot SimsNew Beat Bossa Nova Vol 1 ... LP
Colpix, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $19.99
A great chapter in 60s bossa jazz – Zoot Sims "answer" to Stan Getz's bossa work on Verve – recorded in a similar jazz-meets-bossa style, with some great guitar work by Jim Hall! Zoot's solos are a bit tighter and not as laidback as Stan's – giving a more jazz-based sound to the work that makes for a nice change – and most of the tunes feature larger backings from Manny Albam and Al Cohn – never too over-arranged, but with enough of a full swinging sound to set things right. Hall's guitar works surprisingly well in the setting – and titles include "Barquinho De Papel", "Ciume", "Recado Bossa Nova (parts 1 & 2)", and "Cano Canoe". LP, Vinyl record album

Piero UmilianiFischiando In Beat ... CD
Omicron/Schema (Italy), 1968. New Copy Gatefold ... $19.99
We're not entirely sure what "fischiando" means, but we can definitely testify that the album lives up to the "beat" in its title – those kind of groovy, mod tunes we love so much in Italian 60s soundtracks from the great Piero Umiliani! This set's even more obscure than most of those records, though – done for the tiny Omicron sound library, as part of Piero's Sound Workshop series – with a nice mix of jazzy instrumentation on horns, plus a sweet range of keyboards that include Fender Rhodes, Hammond, and even a bit of spinet! Some tunes have bossa rhythms, others are more 60s mod – and the record also features a few sweet bits of whistling and acoustic guitar as well – although the main focus seems to come from the horns and keyboards. Titles include "Yes OK", "Autostop Per Rio", "Fischiando In Beat", "Tokio Blues", "Go Go Go", "Sono Un NJostalgico", and "Samba Mah Na", a great remake of one of Umiliani's famous themes! CD

A celebration that's a decade in the making – compiling some of the best material from the producer-centric series of hip hop albums on BBE/Beat Generation – timeless boombap from Jay Dee, Madlib, DJ Spinna, King Britt, Marley Marl, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Pete Rock and others! The 2LP version features tracks compiled and DJ Spinna and Mr Thing – which not only feature stellar beats by the producers at the helm, but rhymes and vocals from the likes of Slum Village, Jill Scott, Guilty Simpson and more. One thing we appreciated from the get-go with albums in the Beat Generation series was the effort to make records that were built to last – and as much as 10 years later, it holds up really well! 12 unmixed/full tracks on the 2LP version: "Beej-N-Dem Pt 2" feat Beej by Jay Dee, "Are You Ready" by DJ Jazzy Jeff feat Slum Village, "Superstar" by King Britt feat Ivana Santilli, "Loving You" by Larry Gold feat Carol Riddick, "Rock (Unplugged)" by DJ Spinna, "We Live In Philly" by DJ Jazzy Jeff feat Jill Scott and more.

Fremeaux & Associates (France), Late 30s/1940s/1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 3 CDs ... $19.99 29.99
A really cool set that looks at the rise of late 50s beatnik culture from a variety of different styles – not just the jazz and poetry that marked that scene's biggest contribution to music – but also the wealth of modes that inspired those years too! The 3CD package features a stunning 57 titles in all – and begins in the late 30s with hard-edged small combo work and jive-heavy vocal tracks – then runs past WWII to include some bebop, R&B, and very cool vocal numbers – before moving into Greenwich Village classic sounds in a mix of spoken word, jazz poetry, and even a bit of folk! The booklet is filled with notes and history in both English and French – and titles include "The Beat Generation" by Bob McFadden, "High School Drag" by Phillipa Fallon, "The Nazz" by Lord Buckley, "American Haikus" by Jack Kerouac & Al Cohn, "Route 66" by Bobby Troup, "Gator Tail (part 2)" by Cootie Williams, "Rock & Roll" by Wild Bill Moore, "Killin Jive" by Cats & The Fiddle, "You'se A Viper" by Stuff Smith, "Scrapple From The Apple" by Les Double Six, "Kookie's Mad Pad" by Ed Byrnes, "So What" by Eddie Jefferson, "Howl" by Allen Ginsberg, "I Sing Of Olaf" by Roger Steffans, "Say Man" by Bo Diddley, "Shulie A Bop" by Sarah Vaughan, and "The Rocket Ship Show" by Jocko Henderson.

VariousBeat Girls Espanol – 1960s She Pop From Spain ... LP
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $22.99 25.99
Cool cuts from 60s Spain – all pulled from a musical moment when the Spanish scene was exploding with the same sort of new female pop energy that was taking place in France and England! Like those more familiar modes of 60s girl pop, the style here is upbeat, groovy, and undeniably powerful – quite a change from some of the bluer, weepier modes of the decade before – and a way of infusing the female voice with new energy through lively arrangements, and great use of jaunty rock styles! Lyrics are in Spanish throughout, but there's a universal appeal to the music that really bridges boundaries – excellent small combo instrumentation, often romping along with a pretty great groove – on titles that include "Creo En Ti" by Rico Durcal, "Corazon Contento" by Marisol, "Si Llegara El Amor" by Rosalia, "Aqui En Mi Nube" by Sonia, "Molino Al Viento" by Los Stop, "Prima O Poi" by Silvana Velsasco, "No Se Por Que" by Massiel, "La Verdad" by Soledad Miranda, "Pon Un Anillo En Mi Dedo" by Las Chic, and "Voy A Pintar Los Paredes Con Tu Nombre" by Los Mismos.

VariousCumbia Beat Vol 2 – Tropical Sounds From Peru 1966 to 1983 ... LP
Vampi Soul (Spain), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2LP ... $31.99
A superior second volume of tropical cumbia from Vampi Soul – and a more expansive set than the first one, too! The vast majority the the great stuff here comes from the psych and immediate post-psych years– and it has the tripped-out sounds to show for it – but those are anchored nicely, by feverish percussion and tight tropical rhythms. Beyond that are some some great wah wah guitar, trippy organs, Moog and synth grooves – for a really great sound! This volume is also pretty heavy with instrumentals, but there's some standout vocal tunes, too – with numbers by Los Destellos, Compay Quinto, Los Yungas, Grupo Celeste, Juaneco Y Su Combo, Los Demonios Del Mantaro, Los Ecos, Los Beta 5, Los Orientales De Paramonga and many more. Comes with a nice little booklet of photos, with notes in both Spanish and English. 34 tracks including "Mi Choza, Mi Chacra Y Mi Mujer" by Manzanita, "Boogaloo Del Perro" by Los Destellos, "Baila Flaquita Baila" by Los Ecos, "Illimana" by Los 5 Palomiullas, "Recordando A Fachin" by Juaneco Y Su Combo, "Sin Exito" by Grupo Celeste, "Selva, Selva" by Juanaco Y Su Combo, "Colegiala" by Los Ilusionistas, "El Panadero" by Los Beta 5, "Peti Pan" by Los Demonios Del Mantaro and many more.

Vampi Soul (Spain), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $18.99
A smoking third volume in this mighty look at the Peruvian cumbia scene of the 70s – music that often shares the same blend of guitar, percussion, and keyboards that makes some of the chica grooves from that time so great! The music here maybe owes a bit more to Latin sounds from up north, but the overall execution is very strongly in the modes put forth by Peruvian labels and producers at the time – often with great use of echo, especially in the guitar lines and keyboards – which make things sound very different than anything coming from Colombia or New York at the time! Yet there's also plenty of salsa elements at play here, too – the kind of percussive interplay that might be driving a Cuban or Puerto Rican combo – but nicely different in this setting too. Titles include "Chola Ingrata" by Los Ecos, "Manzana Verde" by Los Tantos, "El Saltamontes" by Silvestre Montez Y Sus Guantanameros, "La Manzanita" by Los Gitanos, "Descarga Oriental" by Los Orientales De Paramonga, "Larga Espera" by Los Sanders De Nana, "Lamento Moyobambino" by Sonido Verde De Moyobamba, and "La Narajadita" by Grupo Siglo XX.

Cherry Red (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 6CDs ... $43.99
A deep deep look at a side of the British 60s scene that didn't always make big waves here in the US – but one that had a huge influence on UK sounds for years to come! The mighty book-like package documents the rich stream of sounds that exploded during the beat group years – a moment that was partly graced by some of the names that we'd know here as the Brit Invasion, but which soon moved off into much more expansive sounds that include mod moments, freakbeat grooves, and a fair bit of tunes influenced by American jazz and soul! The 6CD set features a whopping 165 tracks in all, plus a huge booklet of notes – and a number of the tracks are pulled from the Pye Records catalog – one of the most important Brit labels of the period – but the set also includes lot of bits from elsewhere too. Includes work by The Rogers, Marmalade, The Baskervilles, The Web, The Mighty Atoms, Glenda Collins, The Mike Stuart Span, Bobbi Rio & The Revelles, Carl Wayne & The Vikings, The Mike Cotton Sound, Ray Singer, Marilyn Powell, Just Four Men, Twinkle, Tony Jackson, The Cops N Robbers, Major Rowley, Paddy Klaus & Gibson, David Bowie & The Lower Third, The Lancastrians, New Faces, The Limeys, Mick & Malcolm, Kind, Episode Six, and many others!

Soundway (UK), 1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $28.99
Excellent stuff – and a much-needed look at the funky 70s scene in Ghana! Much of the Afro Funk that's been revived over the past few years has come from the Nigerian scene – so it's great to hear this set of funky tunes from Ghana, a rich selection of grooves with a slightly harder edge than some other African work we've heard, and a rhythmic pulse that leans heavily towards work of American funk acts of the time. Drums, bass, and other percussion abound – and the tunes have a sweetly bubbling funky feel that's nice and soulful! Very well done – with a total of 12 tracks, and a very thorough set of notes – and including the cuts "Because Of Money" by The Third Generation, "Mother Africa" by Marijata, "Heaven" by Ebo Taylor, "Simigwado" by Gyedu Blay Ambolley, "Make It Fast Make It Slow" by Rob, "Kwaku Ananse" by Apagya Show Band, and "Bukom Mashie" by Oscar Sulley.

Mindblowing funk from 70s Africa – a collection that's overflowing with great rare bits! If you ever thought that the sound of Afro Funk was just Fela, Tony Allen, and Manu Dibango – think again, because this set will really expand your horizons! The package was expertly selected, compiled, and annotated by Afro Funk DJ Miles Cleret – a man who really knows his stuff, and who's spent most of his adult life tracking down obscure bits from all corners of the dark continent. This set focuses on funk grooves from the vastly-undocumented Ghana scene – and it's honestly one of the best collections of Afro Funk we've ever heard – smoking and heavy from bottom to top, and filled with great music that we never would have caught otherwise! An instant treasure – and with tracks that include "Africa Is Home" by Joe Mensah, "Atwer Abroba" by Ebo Taylor, "Disco Africa" by Ogyatanaa Show Band, "Tamfo Nyi Ekyir" by Apagaya Show Band, "Kye Kye Pe Aware" by The Sweet Talks, "Mondo Soul Funky" by Ebo Taylor & Wuta Wazuri, "Samarin Bolga" by Uppers Chapter 2, "No Condition Is Permanent" by Marijata, and "Agbadza" by Uhuru Dance Band.

VariousGreatest Jamaican Beat/Tommy McCook & The Supersonics Soul Rocksteady (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Treasure Isle/Doctor Bird (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... Just Sold Out!
A pair of killer albums from the rocksteady years – back to back in a single set, with a heck of a lot of bonus tracks too! First up is the compilation Greatest Jamaican Beat – also titled Rocksteady Baba Boom Time – seminal Duke Reid productions from the key rocksteady years – and a set that shows just how much the rhythm was changing things on the Jamaican scene, both at a vocal and instrumental level! There's a slow-loping vibe to most of these tracks – an approach that really sets the scene for the reggae explosion to come – yet most of the instrumentation still has the strong horn work of the ska/blue beat generation, and even some of the jazzier work of the Kingston scene at the start of the 60s – thanks in large part to Tommy McCook, who plays a fair bit on the set. Titles include "Tommy's Rock Steady", "Hot Rock", "Soul Serenade", and "Down On Bond Street" by Tommy McCook & The Supersonics – plus the killer "Baba Boom" by The Jamaicans, "Drink Wine" by The Techniques", "Release Me" by Phyllis Dillon, "Mercy Mercy Mercy" by The Paragons, and a great remake of "Hey Leroy Your Mama's Calling You" by Sam Jones. The second half of the set features a record completely devoted to work from the great Tommy McCook and his Supersonics group – instrumental rocksteady gems that are filled with plenty of twists and turns! McCook was one of the sharpest saxophone players on the Kingston scene in the 60s – and his varied styles and sounds here are completely incredible – really blowing away contemporary recordings by King Curtis or Jr Walker, partly because Tommy also knows when to bring in just the right current of jazz. Titles include "Soul Rock", "Starry Night", "Zazuka", "Train To Ska-Thedral", "What Now My Love", "Sir Don", "Saboo", and "Never To Be Mine". 2CD set features 26 bonus tracks – 13 more by Tommy McCook & The Supersonics – and more by Norman Grant, The Gladiators, Jamaicans, Justin Hinds & The Dominos, Three Tops, Eric Morris, Treasure Isle Boys, and Gloria & Franklin.

Big Beat (UK), Late 60s. New Copy Gatefold ... $22.99 24.99
Mad sounds from the late 60s world of Japanese pop – a mindblowing, ear-opening batch of singles we never would have gotten our hands on otherwise! The music here feels like sounds coming out of some backroom jukebox in a Nikkatsu "new action" film – or maybe the kind of offbeat pop that Quentin Tarantino might throw into a soundtrack – but there's also a much deeper range of sounds going on than you might expect, with wonderfully clever instrumentation, and lots of surprisingly heartfelt passages in the vocals! And sure, the language might be a barrier – but there's a really universal sense of appeal to this music – a variant of 60s soul and pop, focused through a different sort of lense – and the instrumentation alone is great – with wicked guitars, Hammond, and other garagey touches! As usual with Ace, the whole thing's supported with nicely detailed notes that tell the whole story behind these wonderful lost gems (we like this one even better than the fab first volume) – and titles include "Namida No Go Go" by Emy Jackson & Blue Comets, "Koi Gurui" by Chiyo Okumura, "Tokyo No Hito" by The Peanuts, "Warui Kuse" by Kazumi Yasui, "Boy & Girl" by Akiko Wada, "Namida No Mori No Monogatari" by Akiko Nakamura, "Saike Na Machi" by Reiko Mari, "Bazazz No 1" by Kayoko Ishuu, and "Furi Furi 5" by Linda Yamamoto.

British rock, but with plenty of soul – as these artists were some of the first in the world to be influenced by the sound of early Motown Records – then set about trying to create their own strand of Detroit soul! The influence of Motown on the sound of so many other scenes has been well documented over the years – but this cool little set gets right to the heart of the matter – by representing the kind of British singers and groups who were some of the first to revel in the spirit of Berry Gordy and his creations – then find a way to move things forward with new recordings of their own! As always with Ace Records, the set is way more than just music – as there's a big booklet of notes, with details on all the many tracks and artists – a double dozen selection, with tracks that includes "Sweet Thing" by Georgie Fame, "Mickey's Monkey" by The Hollies, "No 1 In Your Heart" by Herbie Goins & The Nighttimers, "Heat Wave" by Beverley Jones & The Prestons, "One Of These Days" by Guy Darrell, "I Want To Go Back There Again" by Bill Kenwright & The Runaways, "The Way You Do The Things You Do" by Elkie Brooks, "I'll Be Doggone" by Billy J Kramer with The Dakotas, "As Long As I Know He's Mine" by Julie Grant, "Money" by The Undertakers, "I Want A Love I Can See" by John Leyton & The LeRoys, "Stubborn Kind Of Fellow" by The Roulettes, "Every Little Bit Hurts" by Spencer Davis Group, "You Really Got A Hold On Me" by Small Faces, "Never Leave Your Baby's Side" by Tony Jackson, "No Good Without You" by The Birds, and "Let's Go Somewhere" by Beryl Marsden.

Qualiton/Ace (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99 19.99
Great girl pop from a really unlikely source – not the better-known British and French female singles that rocked the European scene in the 60s – but a whole host of more obscure numbers from behind the Iron Curtain – all tracks recorded in Hungary, but hardly ever issued to the rest of the world at the time! Turns out, those Hungarians were very much in line with the kinds of sounds that were romping up London, Paris, and Rome at the time – beat-heavy, soul-influenced grooves that bring a new sort of brashness to the female singers in the lead – and give them a kind of universal appeal, even if you can't understand the lyrics at all! At some level, the instrumentation here is more than enough – loads of groovy organ lines, thumping bass, soaring horns, and all sorts of other groovy touches – but the unusual language of the vocals adds a very cool other aspect to the sound. All tracks are from the Qualiton catalog, and presented here with detailed notes and history in English – for titles tha tinclude "Ez Az Utolso Randevunk" by Eva Nagy, "Konyorogni Nem Fogok" by Zsuzsa Matray, "Keresek Egy Fiut" by Maria Wittek, "Mindig Tanul Az Ember" by Beata Karda, "Fekete Beat" by Sarolta Zalatnay, "Ha Csak Egy Fokkal Szebb Az Ordognel" by Gabi Fenyvesi, "Judas Vagy" by Kyri Ambrus, "Keresem A Szot" by Zsuzsa Koncz, and "Zsakutca" by Clementina Magay.

Great girl pop from a really unlikely source – not the better-known British and French female singles that rocked the European scene in the 60s – but a whole host of more obscure numbers from behind the Iron Curtain – all tracks recorded in Hungary, but hardly ever issued to the rest of the world at the time!

✨✧ Charly AntoliniDrum Beat ... CD
MPS (Germany), 1966. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the more fantastic jazz sides on MPS from the 60s! Drummer Charly Antolini was one of Germany's mainstays – a great drummer with a tight sense of rhythm that really helped bring the country's jazz scene into line with the rest of Europe. This album's one of his best – and it features Antolini working with a smoking octet that grooves away hard on 6 electric cuts. Organist Dieter Reith arranged the whole set, and also contributed 3 tracks to the lineup – but it's his work on the keys that really makes the album shine, as Reith's own firey style is a perfect match for Antolini's fast and frenetic work on the drums. There's a 5-part horn section that features some nice tenor work by a young Joki Freund – and the album includes some great groovers, like "Attention", "Drum-Organ", and "Drum-Pat". Great all the way through, though – and a sure sign that MPS was on the right tracks! CD

✨✧ Sandro Brugnolini/CarniniBeat Drammatico, Underground, Pop Elettronic (with bonus CD) ... LP
Fonit/Schema (Italy), 1973. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ CandidoLatin Fire – The Big Beat Of Candido ... LP
ABC, 1959. Very Good- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the grooviest early albums recorded by Candido – done way before his later funky sides, and served up with plenty of unusual touches that set it apart from the usual 50s Latin set! Candi's very much in front of the arrangements on congas – hitting hard with a percussive fury that certainly marks his space – but he's also getting wonderful support from Manny Albam on arrangements, who brings in some searing solo work from players like Nick Travis, Phil Woods, and Ernie Royal – all of whom color the sound with some strong lines on their horns. And added to this too are some sparely-used vocal bits – scatting chorus passages that are never hokey, and expand out the tunes with a finger-snapping sound that's way better than you might expect! The record's one of the most subtle "with voices" efforts we've ever heard – and we love Albam's economical use of this element alongside the stronger jazz soloists. Titles are mostly traditional numbers, but they're transformed tremendously with this sound – as you'll hear on the album's versions of "Royal Garden Blues", "King Porter Stomp", "Ja Da", "Swinging The Blues", "Sweet Sue", and "Exactly Like You".

A little bit Latin, a little bit jazz, a little bit loungey – and a lotta bit groovy! LA flute jazzer Buddy Collette leads the session, and it's got a nice groove that mixes the piano of Eddie Cano with guitar by Tommy Tedesco and a blend of jazz drumming and Latin percussion. The record was originally issued in kind of a dodgy format, and we rarely find a copy nice enough to collect. Titles include "Bongosville", "Rapture", "Goza Nena", "Tenura", "Jazz Heat Bongo Beat", and "Azul". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Philly Joe JonesPhilly Joe's Beat/Philly & Elvin Jones Together! ... CD
Atlantic/Collectables, Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Stunning! 2 of Philly Joe's best albums on one CD – and both of them are hard as heck to find in any other format! Philly Joe's beat is a beautiful bit of modernist hardbop. Philly Joe pounds away with his usual clarity and groove, but the real treat is an unexpected appearance by the great Bill Barron, who plays tenor on the session. Barron's tenor is amazingly precise, and filled with far-reaching concepts, economically trimmed to fit into some nice tight solos. Tracks on this one include "Muse Rapture", "Lori", "Got To Take Another Chance", and "Lori". The second LP features Philly Joe playing with the other (or one other) great Jones drummer, Elvin. The two of them create an amazing two-drum rhythm line, which serves as the base for solos by Hank Mobley, Blue Mitchell, Curtis Fuller, and Wynton Kelly. The album's a screamer, with some of the most fantastic non-Blue Note work ever by Mobley. Titles include "Le Roi", "Beau-Ty", and "Brown Sugar". Great stuff all 'round, and a super deal at this price! CD

✨✧ DeeleStreet Beat/Material Thangz/Eyes Of A Stranger (3CD set – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Solar/Soulmusic.com (UK), Mid 80s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
A trio of albums from Deele – presented in a box with original LP-styled sleeves, and lots of bonus tracks too! First up is Street Beat – a funky nugget from Deele – an 80s group who were never afraid to use plenty of beats and keyboards in their groove! Deele were part of the new sound that the Solar Records label hit in the early 80s – more electro, more street soul, and with a growing level of rhythmic influences from the hip hop underground – all focused into a warm groove that still had plenty of catchy vocals from Dee Bristol! Dee's got a higher style that works well with the keyboards – as you'll hear on cuts that include "Body Talk", "I Surrender", "Sexy Love", "Just My Luck", "Working", "Crazy Bout Cha", and "Video Villain". Material Thangz has a mix of beats and basslines that almost echoes some of the Prince styles of the time, but which also offers up maybe more of a west coast take on the street soul modes of New York! Production is by the young team of LA and Babyface – who bring to Deele what Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis would bring to their own best work of the time – a nice balance between pop and soul, catchy groovers and mellow moments – all with a sound that was trying to sound plenty darn fresh for the time. Titles include "Let's Work Tonight", "Stimulate", "Sweet November", "Material Thangz", "Suspicious", and "You're All I've Ever Known". Eyes Of A Stranger is one of the biggest records ever from Deele – thanks to the presence of LA and Babyface – who were a key part of the group at the time! The heavier funk styles of previous records are left behind – and the group have realized that they really shine best in mellower modes – the kind of ballads and love songs that still had a nice punch at the bottom, thanks to the LA/Babyface style – but which also really made the best use of Dee's sweet vocal approach! The shift tuned out to be a great one for the group – the start of bigger soul trends to come – and titles include "Two Occasions", "Shoot Em Up Movies", "Eyes Of A Stranger", "Can U Dance", "She Wanted", "So Many Thangs", and "Hip Chic". Bonus tracks include "Surrender (remix)", "Just My Luck (single)", "Body Talk (single)", "Let's Work Tonight (rmx)", "Suspicious (rmx)", "Material Thangz (single)", "Sweet Nothings (rmx)", "Can U Dance (club dub)", "Dry Your Eyes", and "Two Occasions (live rmx)".

Patrick Williams wrote and arranged the whole set – and he merges his jazzier roots with some of his sublime 70s soundtrack skills – in a mix that's still lean enough to keep the album right up there with Laws' best from the time, but also give things a bit more of a funky punch, too.

Totally groovy sounds from the Swedish scene of the 60s – a flurry of female pop tunes that we love every bit as our favorite French femme work from the time! Like French pop, the tunes here are lively and upbeat – often with a slight current of funk or soul in the rhythms, and with instrumentation that mixes fuller orchestrations with groovier elements at the core – creating a juxtaposition of large sound and personal presence that makes the music plenty darn great throughout! There have been lots of other European scenes tapped like this over the years – but this may well be the first Swedish collection we've ever heard – and, thanks to the folks at Ace Records, it gets beautiful presentation with top-shelf sound, and detailed notes on the music. Titles include "The Girls Want The Boys" by Eleanor Bodel, "Karlek Finns Det Overallt" by Mak Les Souers, "Last Train To Liverpool" by Plommons, "Good Kind Of Hurt" by Lena Junoff, "Don't" by Doris, "Benny Law" by Plums, "Lite For Liten" by Lill Babs, "Vadret" by Mona Wessman, and "You Really Have Started Something" by Britt Bergstrom. 12 tracks in all!
