That's an image of Sun Ra & The Arkestra in Istanbul in 1990 on the front – and the issue features lots more photographs from that visit, plus the story of a very unique street performance they gave in the city! There's lots more too – a nicely varied set of features that really continues the groundbreaking spirit of Maggot Brain – photographs of New York musicians in the 80s, Blue Gene Tyranny and Peter Gordon interviewed by Ned Sublette, the collaboration between Pharoah Sanders and Floating Points, the hidden lyrics of Blue Oyster Cult, the top 20 Fall Songs by Plastic Crimewave, excerpts from a memoir by Young Marble Giant Stuart Moxham, a tribute to Crawdaddy by Luc Sante – and lots lots more!

The mighty Moondog is on the cover this time around – in a fantastic second issue of Maggot Brain that really lives up to the spirit of the debut! The cultural currents here are nice and wide, and all pretty darn hip – and in addition to a nice feature on legendary outsider composer Moondog, there's lots more on Rebecca Morgan, Denis Johnson, Don Letts, Robert Frank, Astra Taylor, Skeeter Davis, Mayo Thompson, Shana Cleveland, Toody Cole, and other creative talents that go way past the obvious! There's even a very cool feature on Detroit Gospel Flyers – and as usual, the whole thing is as filled with compelling images as it is well-written prose! Magazine

A great new issue of Maggot Brain – including wide-ranging interviews with artist Raymond Pettibon and underground culture renaissance man John Waters that both go way deeper than their most iconic works – and equally deep insight-fueled pieces from cover-to-cover! Includes a look at the legacy-to-date of Detroit vocalist John Brannon from Negative Approach to the Laughing Hyenas and beyond, a photo journal on tour with noise rock lifers The Melvins, experimental pop veteran Cheri Knight, sax player & composer Patrick Shiroishi on Japanese folk-blues guitarist & visionary Kan Mikami, zine writer/publisher/outsider musician Seymour Glass and lots more.

Heck, there's even a review of Irreversible Entanglements that's filled with great photos of the group – but don't worry, as there's plenty of text too – including a discussion of prog rock with the great Matt Berry, a look at Philly guitarists Rosali Middleman and Emily Robb, and the diary of legendary hobo Bill Aspinwall!

Maggot Brain has only been around for a handful of issues – but during that time, the publication has evolved tremendously – and become one of our go-to sources for digging into a really wide range of music! This time around, the cover feature spotlights a set of never-seen photos of early 90s indie rock – but there's plenty more on Archie Shepp, Camille Roy, ELO, Endless Boogie, Guerilla Girls, and the duo of Will Sergeant & Bobby Gillespie – all presented with the mixture of strong writing and art!

The wonderful Raincoats are on the cover this time around, and the issue looks at the way their once-overlooked music has gone on to get the attention it deserved, and keep on having an influence over generations to come! There's lots more too – a very interesting piece that has Terry Riley and Hamid Drake commenting on Don and Moki Cherry, a set of unpublished AC/DC photos from 1977, the duo of guitarists Marisa Anderson and William Tyler, unseen collage art from Jim Jarmusch, an interview with singer/songwriter Tim Rutili, the rebirth of singer Merry Clayton, a cool collection musical artifacts at the Henry Ford Museum, 13 pages from issue #2 of Gary Panter's Jimbo comic, and lots more cool stuff too – the sort of articles that have continued to make Maggot Brain one of the most interesting magazines in recent years!

✨✧ Normal Brain (Yukio Fujimoto)Lady Maid ... LP
Vanity/WRWTFWW (Switzerland), 1981. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Beautiful sounds from Japanese artist Yukio Fujimoto – a record that maybe echoes some of the electro-pop styles of the time, but in a way that's much more stripped-down and creative! The set was issued in a limited pressing of 300 copies at the time – so was light years away from the mainstream – and, if anything, the music here maybe feels like some of the more abstract sides of the German new wave – maybe like instrumentals or outtakes from a Der Plan session, with a wonderful mix of playful energy and darkness around the edges – as Fujimoto works with a host of Korg and Roland electronic instruments – crafting moody magic on tracks that include "MUSIC", "Fragment", "Frottage SW", "You Are Busy I Am Easy", and "KE 300".

Maggot Brain/Third Man, 2021. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The great Maggot Brain keeps on growing and growing – really reaching mind-expanding territory this special seventh issue, at a level that goes far beyond the large features on Lou Reed and Loaded pictured on the cover! There's a wealth of different shorter features, mixed with artwork and other articles too – bits on Lee Scratch Perry, Pastor TL Barrett, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Dane Wareham, The Goats, and the late 80s underground noise scene around Detroit – plus an especially strange feature on Doug Henning and his relationship to glam rock in Canada! As always, its less the topics than the way they're handled that makes the magazine so great – and Maggot Brain is definitely one of those publications that really rewards a cover-to-cover read – like the old classics Grand Royal, Wax Poetics, or even Motorbooty.

Richard Rodney BennettBillion Dollar Brain ... LP
United Artists, 1967. Near Mint- ... $14.99
An obscure late 60s spy thriller starring Michael Caine – with a really dark soundtrack! Richard Rodney Bennett did a fair bit of jazz arranging in his time – and the score to this one mixes some dark dramatic bits with some lighter motifs that feature good work on woodwinds and percussion. The main theme has some nice floating piano over the top, and a few other tracks have a cool whistling suspense theme – but things also really change up a lot nicely, and the whole thing almost has an audio collage feel at times, with its sense of variety. Titles include "Love Scene", "Hoe Down", "Anya", "The Church", "Skidoo", "Ambush", "Car Chase", and "Billion Dollar Brain". LP, Vinyl record album

Chocolate WatchbandMelts In Your Brain Not On Your Wrist – The Complete Recordings 1965 to 1967 ... CD
Big Beat (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Just Sold Out!
Throw away all of your other 60s psychedelic albums – because with this massive 2CD set, you'll hardly need them! The Chocolate Watchband were one of the key groups of the California scene of the 60s – a hard-rocking outfit that emerged in the garagey psyche years, and worked in the same south bay scene as Count Five and Syndicate Of Sound. Yet unlike either of those bands, Chocolate Watchband never scored as big on the charts – and also had a harder, rougher, edgier sound that showed what a young group could really do when given the space. There's a Stones-like sense of power here – especially on the rougher, blusier numbers – but also a Love-like sense of tightness and desire to hone the power of the guitar into a key force for the youth of the 60s. And although the group's discography has been slightly mysterious for years, this 2CD set more than corrects any problems – by offering up the full scope of the group's work – including singles on the Uptown and Hanna Barbera labels, material from their Tower LPs, later unissued cuts – and full notes on everything, including those studio sessions that didn't always feature all the members of the group. 43 tracks in all – with amazing notes, photos, and details on the music!

✨✧ FunkadelicMaggot Brain (remastered with bonus tracks) ... CD
Westbound, 1971. Used ... $11.99
Amazing stuff – and arguably the greatest early Funkadelic album ever! The set moves past the simple fuzzy style of the group's debut, and the overly-stoned sound of Free Your Mind – and rockets into a heady funk style that's filled with sly social commentary and an incredibly dark vision of the future! The centerpiece of the album is the mindblowing "Maggot Brain" title track – a tune that begins with a chilling spoken intro, then slowly builds amidst washes and washes of post-Hendrix guitar. That cut then rolls into some shorter, funkier numbers that rank with some of the group's best ever – using the device of party-hearty energy to convey a sense of alienation and horror at the world. The whole thing's brilliant throughout – and apart from being a soul classic, the set should also rank as one of the greatest rock albums of all time! Titles include "Maggot Brain", "Super Stupid", "Back in Our Minds", "Can You Get to That", and "Wars of Armageddon". CD features 3 bonus tracks – including "Maggot Brain (alternate mix)", "Whole Lot Of BS", and "I Miss My Baby". CD

✨✧ VariousPeephole In My Brain – The British Progressive Pop Sounds Of 1971 (3CD set) ... CD
Grapefruit (UK), 1971. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
Short songs, but exploding with a huge range of new musical ideas – not the side-long jams of the progressive rock generation, but instead some singles and album tracks that manage to pack all of the best elements into some mighty catchy tunes! These tracks all benefit from a huge explosion of ideas in songwriting, arranging, and production – the sorts that are famously served up on prog albums of the time, but which are maybe even more impressive when turned to tracks that are more condensed and surprisingly catchy – which is what we can say about all the many musical gems in this set! As with other of the "year" series from Grapefruit, the music here is a fantastic blend of artists you might know and others you'll discover here for the first time – all supported by a very detailed set of notes, and a track list of 71 killer tracks by artists who include Cressida, The Move, Stray, Stackridge, Dana Gillespie, Sakkarin, Curved Air, Status Quo, Atomic Rooster, Terry Dactyl & The Dinosaurs, Phase 3, Dear Mr Time, Edwards Hand, Lifblud, Don Crown & His Busking Buddies, Edgar Broughton Band, Fickle Pickle, Unicorn, Factory, Shape Of The Rain, Ray Fenwick, Pluto, Fusion Farm, Zior, Nimbo, Second Hand, Colin Blunstone, Rockin Horse, Nirvana, Bill Nelson, Curtiss Maldoon, Blonde On Blonde, and many more.

Wolfgang DaunerRischkas Soul ... CD
Brain/Long Hair (Germany), 1972. New Copy ... $19.99 26.99
A fantastic album from German keyboard giant Wolfgang Dauner – and maybe one of the few to perfectly balance both his soul jazz roots and his later trippier style! The music here is very groovy – much more in the mode of MPS Records electric jazz sets of the time than you'd guess from the album's placement on Brain Records – and the lineup features incredible work from Sigi Schwab on guitar – who can be open and spacious at some points, but then really jam with a groove at others! Likewise, the bassist Eberhard Weber can provide a lot of propulsion when needed, but also lay back and bow his cello in a more ECM-like way – and the album's two drummers, Fred Braceful and Roland Wittich, both show an equally deft ability to change up the groove! The real superstar, though, is the mighty Dauner – who plays piano, organ, and keyboards, plus a sweet bit of flute too – on tracks that include "Reading Machine", "Kamasutram", "Blues Far Out", "Flute Woman", and a freaky fuzzy take on Cannonball Adderley's "Jive Samba".

GreensladeGold Rock (aka Greenslade) ... LP
Brain (Germany), 1973. Near Mint- ... $19.99
The debut album from Greenslade – a set that's as sprawling and dynamic as its famous cover image from Roger Dean! Dean gives the whole package a bit of a Yes-like vibe – and there's definitely that sort of inspiration going on here – a really sharp, well-played mix of the keyboards of leader Dave Greenslade with fierce work on bass and drums – both handled with a fantastic sense of changes, and a driving force that never gets lost in itself or overindulgent! At a time when some prog groups were getting too darn proggy, these guys really stay the course – and are given fantastic guidance in the vocals of Dave Lawson – a really distinct singer who should have had a much bigger audience at the time. About as great as you can get for a record like this – with tracks that include "Temple Song", "Sundance", "Feathered Friends", "An English Western", and "Drowning Man". LP, Vinyl record album

Brain/Gronland (Germany), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $37.99 39.99
The groundbreaking first album from Neu – maybe not the earliest record in the Krautrock generation – but a set that certainly set a new sort of standard after it was released! The group mix together slow-building rhythms and plenty of fuzz – all recorded by the great Conny Plank, who has a way of blending the songs and all their many elements – instrumentation put together by ex-Kraftwerk members Klaus Dinger and Michael Rother – who mostly use guitars, bass, and drums – but end up turning them into something completely different with the help of Plank! Some of the tracks are quite long, and really take a great path to find their way forward – very different than Can or Cluster, at least from an outside perspective – but equally classic. Titles include "Hallogallo", "Sonderangerbot", "Im Gluck", "Negativland", "Weissensee", and "Lieber Honig". LP, Vinyl record album

Brain/Bureau B (Germany), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The first rumblings of genius from German electronic giants Cluster – but oddly, a record recorded without any synthesizers at all! The team of Dieter Moebius and Hans-Joachim Rodelius are both playing organ here – as well as cello and Hawaiian guitar, and some "audio-generator" and amplifier effects – and they're recording with some excellent production help from the legendary Conny Plank, who uses all sorts of weird techniques to mess up the sound in really great ways. Ordinary notes are completely abstracted here – given cosmic tones and echoey rumblings that are far more challenging than most of the later work by Cluster, especially the pair's more ambient late 70s recordings. The 3 long songs are identified only by their timings – "15:33", "7:38", and "21:17". LP, Vinyl record album

Brain/Gronland (Germany), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A brilliant little album from Harmonia – quite possibly their greatest record ever, and a set that's wonderfully balanced between progressive and electronic modes! There's a live drummer on the set – Mani Neumeier of Guru Guru – and although he still plays with a spare, circular mode that recalls the Harmonia rhythms of before, there's also a slight bit of propulsion here too – one that pushes the keyboards and guitars alongside nicely. There's also some spacey vocals at times, which when coupled with these other elements, gives the record a sound that's a bit like early Neu – although still a bit more electronic overall. A great bridge between two worlds of music in the German scene of the 70s – with tracks that include "Gollum", "Monza", "Notre Dame", "Deluxe", "Walky Talky", and "Kekse". LP, Vinyl record album

A fantastic little record from the glory days of the Brain Records label in Germany – a set that's equal part rock and jazz – either fusion-tinged rock, or rock-tinged fusion – served up with all these really weird and wild touches that really send things over the top! There's no vocals at all on the record, and tracks nicely vary in length – really creating a strong sense of variety, and serving up the music with a nice sense of space, too – very different from more full-on jamming of a more progressive group, as these guys really like to just lie back into the groove and let things find their way! The set features some especially nice work on electric flute and saxes from Klaus Dapper – and titles include "Rambo Zambo", "Gageg", "Forsterlied", and "Baldrian". LP, Vinyl record album

A massive tribute to the long career of Dennis Bovell – the British artist who first rose up in the late 70s group Matumbi, then went on to share his production talents with a host of other artists in the decades that followed! This double-length set brings together a career-spanning set of tracks that all were handled by Bovell – a first half that features his own recordings under a number of groups, and a second half that features Bovell production and studio work with a range of other artists too – including some rare and unissued material, in a package put together by Dennis himself! Titles include the Bovell cuts "Run Rasta Run" with African Stone, "Come With Me" as Dennis Curtis, "The Grunwick Affair" and "Za Lon" with 4th Street Orchestra, "Blood Ah Go Run/Blood Dem (12" mix)" by Matumbi, and cuts "Brain Damage", "Chief Inspector", "Dub Master", "Silly Dub", "Caught You In A Lie", "After Tonight (acoustic version)", "Raindrops", "Eye Water", and "Pow Wow" – all issued under Bovell's name. The second half features titles that include "African Queen" by Errol Campbell, "Africa Is Our Land" by Joshua Moses, "Take Five" by Young Lions, "Portrait Of You" by Gladwin Wright, "Hooked On You" by Delroy Wilson, "Cry" by Angelique, "A Little Way Different/Differentah (12" mix)" by Errol Dunkley with Julio Finn, "Silly Games" by Janet Kay, "Get Up Stand Up" by I Roy, and "Positive Vibrations" by Pebbles.

Wonderful work from Calibro 35 – a funky combo who just seem to get better and better with each new record! These guy started out in territory that was strongly influenced by older Italian soundtrack material – which they could copy with effortless ease – but this time around, they really seem to have found their own voice – kind of a cosmic approach to keyboard funk that's every bit as spacey as the cover! There's still plenty of 70s elements in the mix – and the rhythms have all the heavy grooves you'd love in a cop/crime soundtrack – but the instrumentation is often a lot more complex, and really reaching for new sounds too – using both keyboards and electronics along with acoustic elements on woodwinds and percussion – plus some other cool sounds that we can't figure out at all. Titles include "Across 111th Sun", "74 Days After Landing", "Bandits On Mars","Brain Trap", "Violent Venus", "Universe Of 10 Dimensions", "Serenade For A Satellite", and "A Future We Never Lived".

Producer/musician John McIntire's been influenced strongly by Cluster's music over the years – and here, he returns his love to the duo of Dieter Moebius and Hans-Joachim Rodelius – by offering up his own edits of their tracks "Grosses Wasser", "In Ewigkeit", and "21 32" – alongside well-chosen classics that include "Hollywood", "The Shade", "Fur Die Katz", "Oh Odessa", and "Wehrmut".

Crime were slightly slept-on at the time, but have gone on to get the dues they greatly deserve – a razor-sharp band whose sound is as striking as their use of police uniforms as costumes – a musical quality that's sometimes more Stooges than punk, and we mean that in the best way possible – as these guys are equally off in a space of their own, yet still have managed to influence so many others on so many scenes. The set features rare material from studio session and rehearsal tapes – and titles include "Dillinger's Brain", "Flipout", "Monkey On Your Back", "Yakuza", "Emergency Music Ward", "I Knew This Nurse", "Crime Wave", "Murder By Guitar", and "Piss On Your Dog".

Given his mythical personal history, you can easy describe Roky Erickson as "having demons" – but as you'll hear, he's also got two-headed dogs, vampires, zombies, fire demons, ghosts and Lucifer himself – just on this one record! The tracks have an odd release history – having been recorded in the late 70s, but not released until 1980 in the UK on the Five Symbols record, and in '81 as The Evil One LP, with an altered tracklist. This definitive Light In The Attic version gathers up all 15 amazing tracks from the Stu Cook sessions from '77-'79. Includes the legendary "Two Headed Dog" and many more tunes that are just as incredible! Titles include "I Walked With A Zombie", "Night Of The Vampire", "It's A Cold Night For Alligators", "Mine Mine Mind", "I Think Of Demons", "Creature With The Atom Brain", "Bloody Hammer", "Don't Shake Me Lucifer", "If You Have Ghosts" and more.

Ghost Funk OrchestraNight Walker/Death Waltz (red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Karma Chief/Colemine, 2016/2022. New Copy ... $21.99 25.99
A set that brings together the earliest music by Ghost Funk Orchestra – previously only out there in the digital world and on cassette, and a great start to the legacy of the group! As with some of their recent albums, the vibe here is a spooky take on deep funk – bits of psychedelic instrumentation, eerie effects, and plenty of echo in the production – all of which really give the group their unique sound! There's vocals on a number of tracks, but often used in a way that swirls around nicely with the echo, only furthering the "ghost" in their sound – and the set features the full previous digital releases Night Walker and Death Waltz – with tracks that include "Brain Fog", "Lost Soul", "Brownout", "Dark Passage", "Blood Moon", "Demon Demon", "Franklin Avenue", and "A Moment Of Clarity".

A cool little record that's as slinky and sexy as you might guess from the cover – 70s Krautrock, but done in this laidback mode that often has the instruments slowly coming together in an organic way – never jamming too much, but hitting this really sublime swirl of acoustic guitars, electronics, mellotron, vibes, and even a bit of flute! Tracks are mostly instrumental, and revel in the sense of cosmic creation – this really beautiful energy that comes through on every single cut, with a quality that rivals the best classics on Brain Records from a few years before. Titles include "Dedicated To Wernher Von Braun", "Expeditions", "Eternity", "Mythalagia/Dreamlab", and "Message". CD

Horace SilverYou Gotta Take A Little Love (RVG remaster edition) ... CD
Blue Note, 1969. Used ... $11.99
A great late 60s gem from pianist Horace Silver – and a great bridge between his earlier soul jazz for Blue Note, and some of his more righteous work to come in the 70s! At one level, the sound here steps off from classics like Serenade To A Soul Sister or The Jody Grind – but at another level, there's a more open approach to the music – one that has Horace sliding into new tones and colors, with a slightly lyrical undercurrent as well. As on some of his later dates, the mellower moments are often the most compelling – showing a newly mature side of Silver's talents, and a new love of space between the notes that really helps to break the mode of previous recordings! The group here features the great Bennie Maupin on tenor and flute, Randy Brecker on trumpet and flugelhorn, John Williams on bass, and Billy Cobham on drums – and titles include "Lovely's Daughter", "Risin Sun", "You Gotta Take A Little Love", "Down & Out", and "Brain Wave".

We're not sure if the brain surgery on the front cover ever worked out for Swamp Dogg, but the music inside the CD is actually everything the title promises – a re-invention of his older modes, in a way that almost moves back to the straighter southern soul of his roots – and really takes great advantage of his excellent vocals! There's a slightly crackling sound to Swamp's vocals on the best numbers – a unique and personal approach that's quite classic overall, and which rarely resorts to tricks or gimmicks to put a tune over. Instrumentation is somewhat contemporary, but never too slick or electric – and titles include "We Need A Change", "Galactic Zoo", "I Have Touched The Sky", "Sugar Bum Bum", and "We'll Never Say Goodbye".

Unreleased material by Ike & Tina Turner – hard, funky, and very fierce! The sound here is similar to some of the pair's more famous albums of the time – but it's also rawer and rootsier, as befits the demo status of these recordings. If you've ever gotten turned off by the production of some of Ike's studio records, you might well dig this one a lot – as it's got the raw funky promise that's often missing from other sets. 2LP version is the best take on this set so far – with 20 tracks in all, detailed notes and photos, and even a small poster as well. Titles include "He Makes Me Holler", "Baby Makes Me Feel Good", "Ya Ya", "Sit & Hold Your Hand", "Money", "Brain Game", "It's Groovier Across The Line", "Proud Mary (funky version)", and "Woke Up This Morning".

Soul Jazz (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 3LP ... $39.99 49.99
A totally great look at the explosion of electronic sounds in German music during the 70s – a set that goes way past more familiar Krautrock territory, to bring together elements from the artier side of the spectrum too, and even run up to some of the first great moments of the German new wave! Soul Jazz have been down this path before, but this time they're maybe following the road a little farther – as the track selection is especially great, and has a way of really illuminating the special sound of this generation, even if you already know some of the music! There's a few more meditative moments than on previous volumes, mixed with some tuneful tracks, funky numbers, and even a few subtle rockers – all laid out in a way that really makes the songs sound great together as a whole. Titles include "Dronz" by Novalis, "Wide Open Space Machine" by Klaus Weiss, "Deutscher Wald" by Deutsche Wertarbeit, "I'll Be Your Singer You'll Be My Song" by AR & Machines, "The Brain Of Oskar Panizza" by Michael Bundt, "And The Waters Opened" by Between, "White Overalls" by La Dusseldorf, "Tanz Der Vogel In Den Winden" by Achim Reichel, "Hollywood" by Cluster, "Die Haut Der Frau" by Pyrolator, and "Passage" by Streetmark.

Funky stuff inspired by the deepest, funkiest Kool & The Gang work of the 70s – a set weighed heavily with real obscurities – with furiously grooving jazzy bits, grainy hard soul versions, steel band numbers and more – all massively funky in their unique strains of the sound! Much like the other comps in the Le Smoke Disque tributes to classic funk figures, the really dig deep – with material from rare regional funk singles, cover versions, and tribute tracks from regions as far apart as the midwestern US, Mexico, Brazil, Thailand and well beyond. The regional sounds are certainly big factors, the the groove is ultimately pretty faithful to the Kool funk sound – amazing stuff! Includes "You Best Give It Up" by Jessie & The Mel O Tones, "Who's Gonna Take The Weight?" by Cane & Able, "Kool Is Back" by La Mars, "Lose Pelos Tiesos" by Rabbits & Carrots, "Funky Granny" by Everyday People, "Jammin With Shorty" (Parts A & B) by Shorty And The Junior Kools, "Give It Up" by The Impossibles, "Funky Stuff" by the Dutch Rhythm Steel And Show Band, "Kool And The Gang" by Tyree Glenn, Jr & Brain Damage, and more.

A massive tribute to the long career of Dennis Bovell – the British artist who first rose up in the late 70s group Matumbi, then went on to share his production talents with a host of other artists in the decades that followed! This double-length set brings together a career-spanning set of tracks that all were handled by Bovell – a first half that features his own recordings under a number of groups, and a second half that features Bovell production and studio work with a range of other artists too – including some rare and unissued material, in a package put together by Dennis himself! Titles include the Bovell cuts "Choose Me" with African Stone, "Za Lon" with 4th Street Orchestra, "Blood Ah Go Run" by Matumbi, and cuts "Brain Damage", "Chief Inspector", "Dub Master", "Silly Dub", "Caught You In A Lie", and "Oh Mama Oh Papa" – all issued under Bovell's name.

A really unusual album from the mighty Chick Corea – a set recorded at the end of the 60s, at a time when Chick's star was just beginning to rise – but in a style that's both very different than his famous material of the 70s, and his avant fame as part of the group Circle! Chick's definitely got some of the harder, freer tones that he brought to Circle – but overall, there's more of a sense of spiritual jazz to the record – as Chick plays acoustic throughout, in a wonderful lineup that features Woody Shaw on trumpet, Hubert Laws on flute, Dave Holland on bass, and both Jack DeJohnette and Horacee Arnold on drums! The whole thing's got a vibe that's a lot more like Strata East than most other records that Sonny Lester ever produced – and titles include "The Brain", "Song Of Wind", "Converge", and "Sundance".

The 2CD set pulls together 29 tracks from the group's classic years at Westbound – and shows them starting out as a messed-up, guitar-growling rock funk act – filled with the unique crossover spirit of Detroit – then turning into a tighter, funkier soul act with the power to really rock the charts! All the good funky tunes are here – and the set seems to have a special focus on tracks by the group that have been sampled strongly in recent history! Titles include "Red Hot Mama", "Funky Dollar Bill", "Hit It & Quit It", "Cosmic Slop", "Loose Booty", "Get Off Your Ass & Jam", "America Eats Its Young", "Maggot Brain", "I'll Stay", "Nappy Dugout", "I'll Bet You", "I Got A Thing You Got A Thing Everybody's Got A Thing", "A Joyful Process", "Be My Beach", "Undisco Kidd", "Biological Speculation", "Take Your Dead Ass Home", and "You Can't Miss What You Can't Measure".

Stones Throw, 2008. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
Madlib's reworked, re-imagined and remixes of the mighty Madvillainy LP! The original album is arguably one of the greatest Stones Throw album ever, held up by many as one of the best indie hip hop albums of its decade if not all time – so Madlib is wise to take a freewheeling, fairly loose approach to this revisit. It's not so much a straight up remix album as it is a wild, unpredictable mash up of scattered Doom vocals from the classic LP with gritty, funky beats from Madlib's crates. It's definitely got an underground feel to it, and by no means a track for track remix effort – the vocals and some of the beats are familiar, but for the most part the dusty deck of beats are completely reshuffled – not as murky and ominously moody as the original album, and recast with an underground hip hop funk feel. Includes "Pow (Intro)", "No Brain", "Pearls", "Light Of The Press", "Boulder Holder", "Borrowed Time", "Costa2Coast", "Draino", "Bejezus", ""Monkey Suit", "Can't Reform M", "Running Around", "Never Go Pop", "The Cold One" and more.

One of the coolest albums to come from the Ghana scene in the 70s – served up by a group who's equally well-skilled at many ends of the musical spectrum! At one level, Marijata come on like a heavy funk act – lots of fuzz on the guitar, fierce drums at the bottom, and tight jazzy horns over the top – all recorded with a raw sound that makes the group rival the American funky 45 underground on the heaviest numbers! Yet there's also a strongly soulful component to their vocals, but given a bit of a Jamaican influence too – in a style that's not exactly reggae, but more like a unique African take on a Kingston sound in the way the rhythms and harmonies come across. And a few other numbers are almost deep soul – with incredible vocals that could rival some of the most classic sounds from Memphis in the late 60s! Vocals are in English throughout – and titles include "Brain Washing", "Papa Little Boy", "Black Beautiful Race", "I Can Say", "Don't Blame Us", "Salvation", "Mother Africa", "My Love Will Shine", and "That's The Way".

The album's got that tightened-up P-Funk sound that was working so perfectly at the time – still with all the fuzzy haired elements of earlier years, but presented with a bit more focus – and a powerhouse swing that really drives the tracks home with a funky groove on the bottom! There's a flowing sort of energy here that almost makes you think that the whole thing just emerged naturally from the brain of George Clinton – but all ensemble players have a strong hand in the action, and really get some great moments in on the set. Cuts include "Gamin' On Ya", "Do That Stuff", "Children Of Production", and "I've Been Watching You (Move Your Sexy Body)". LP, Vinyl record album

Although Bad Brains may fly the flag of the Rastas, and definitely claim a reggae influence – the record manages to both blow away the work of the LA scene with its full-on hardcore tracks, and the UK scene with the group's few reggae-styled numbers.

And despite their rasta roots, there's hardly any reggae-styled moments here – really just a few tracks amidst the triple-time numbers – and probably less than you'd find on an early 80s Clash album! Titles include "Banned In DC", "Sailin' On", "At The Movies", "Right Brigade", "Supertouch", "FVK", "Coptic times", "How Low Can A Punk Get", and "Big Takeover" – and oddly, the whole thing was produced by Ric Ocasek too!

A fantastic celebration of the first ten years of the Brainfeeder label – an imprint that's slowly been shaping the sound of soul, hip hop, and other styles over the past decade or so – with a reach that's starting to make waves in jazz and other music too! Brainfeeder has always had a great direction, right from the start – and even some of the older moments here bristle with a relevance that matches the collection's more contemporary cuts and future-pointing tunes (the set features 22 unreleased tracks out of a total of 36) – a really great testament, given that these guys work in worlds that can sometimes go stale quickly.

And sure, lots of folks worked in that territory during the 80s world music boom – but Cuevas was one of the first, and has a style that's a lot more like some of the best early Celluloid/Crammed material – with a vibe that stretches nicely from the clubs of Paris to some of the best cross-cultural experiments of the downtown scene in New York! The well-done set brings together tracks from a few different albums and 12" singles – and titles include "Everywhere Is My Home", "Gallo Negro (Ronan mix)", "Qiereme Un Poco (inst mix)", "Ebony Game", "Island In My Mind (edit)", and three different mixes of the great cut "Obsession" – Paris, London, and Nassau mixes!

Driving StupidHorror Asparagus Stories ... CD
Modern Harmonic, 1966. New Copy ... $15.99 16.99
A wonderfully weird little record – a set recorded in the mid 60s, unissued at the time – and full of horror-tinged tunes that are perfect for the stripped-down garagey delivery of the group! In a way, the blend of monster themes and raw instrumentation has a feel that's almost like an 80s group, trying to pretend their a 60s one – which really gives the whole thing an out of time sort of vibe, and maybe shows that although Driving Stupid never cracked the big time, they certainly were ahead of their time! Lyrics are often pretty goofy and funny – and we mean that in a great way – and titles include "We've Come To Take The Earth Away", "My Mother Was A Big Fat Pig", "Hide The Lobsters", "How Do You tell A Stranger", "I'm Gonna Bash Your Brains In", and "Water My Doing Here".

Earth OperaGreat American Eagle Tragedy ... LP
Elektra, 1969. Very Good ... $11.99 16.99
Excellent work by a near-forgotten act that blossomed briefly at the end of the 60s folk-rock boom – the incredible Earth Opera, a group that tied together many styles into a rich and unique sound! The album came out of the crumbling Boston scene of the late 60s – showing echoes of that city's optimistic folk scene of the earlier part of the decade, sliding into the more introspective musings of the singer/songwriter era. The group was the brainchild of singer/guitarist Peter Rowan, but also featured quite a bit of support from a young David Grisman – playing here on mandolin, piano, and a bit of alto sax. The tracks are folksy, but with lots of jazzy undercurrents – almost in a Tim Buckley mode at times, but with themes that are farther reaching, and often more political. The album's an obvious testament to the downfall of the US – surprisingly resonant in recent years – and features titles that include "Roast Beef Love", "The American Eagle Tragedy", "Home To You", "Alfie Finney", and "All Winter Long".

First ClassFirst Class ... LP
UK/London, 1974. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A brilliant extension of the sound of American harmony pop of the 60s – and one that blends it together with a good deal of 70s soft rock as well! First Class are the brainchild of Brit studio legend John Carter – and they're kind of a recast take on the sound of the Beach Boys in later years – filtered through a nicely compressed UK mid 70s pop approach that brings in some sweeter, softer modes, but which also has some of that "bump" of glam-era pop as well. The group's best known for their massive 70s hit "Beach Baby" – but they've got a great sound that's more than worth rediscovering all these years later. Titles include "Beach Baby", "Won't Somebody Help Me", "Bobby Dazzler", "The Disco Kid", "Long Time Gone", "Surfer Queen", and "What Became Of Me". LP, Vinyl record album

Marvin GayeHere, My Dear (expanded 2CD edition) ... CD
Motown/Hip-O Select, 1978. New Copy 2CD ... $10.99 29.98
Wonderful stuff – and one of our favorite-ever Marvin Gaye albums! This is the legendary two-record set that Marvin wrote and recorded as an alimony payment to his ex-wife Anna Gordy (the story's pretty long, and we won't get into it here – suffice it to say that when stars get a divorce, watch out!) Although the album was thought of as a no-brainer quickie at the time – and predicted to fail so that Anna wouldn't get any cash from it – the record is an extremely well-crafted one, filled with extremely personal songs that also have a warm soulful finish, in the style of Marvin's work on the LP I Want You (which is kind of a nice bookend to this one – as it was an extended love poem to the young girlfriend that caused him to split up with Anna!) Hard and soulful, the record's a searing testimony to the relationship between Marvin and Anna, and a painful document of the troubles between them – set to some mellow grooves that are easily some of Marvin's greatest of the 70s! The set's filled with great "lost" Marvin Gay songs, too – like "Sparrow", "When Did You Stop Loving Me", "Anger", "You Can Leave, But It's Going To Cost You", and "Time to Get it Together". Expanded CD features the famous 12" instrumental version of "A Funky Space Reincarnation" – plus a full set of 12 bonus alternate mixes produced by the likes of Mocean Worker, Easy Mo Bee, Leon Ware, Marcus Miller, Prince Paul, Bootsy Collins, Slaam Remi, and The Randy Watson Experience – including "Anger (alt extended)", "Here My Dear (alt mix)", "Time To Get It Together (alt extended mix)", "Falling In Love Again (alt version)", "I Met A Little Girl (alt version)", "Sparrow (alt version)", and "Anna's Song (inst – alt version)".

Incredible Bongo BandBongo Rock (180 gram deluxe 40th anniversary edition) ... LP
Pride/Mr Bongo (UK), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99 27.98
A landmark album that is perhaps the single most influential beat source in hip hop! The record was the brainchild of bongo player Michael Viner – who also happened to be running the Pride subsidiary of MGM at the time. Viner's got a meeeeeean touch on the bongo, hitting it hard and funky like the best 70s conga players – and his approach to the instrument is kind of like a funky update of popular instrumental styles laid down on guitar by The Ventures or on moog by Hot Butter. This album features the classics "Apache" and "Bongo Rock" – both with monster funky breakdowns that showed up on a heck of a lot of hip hop records over the years – plus loads of other goodies like "Last Bongo In Belgium" and "Bongolia". Excellent stuff – and darn hard to find! (We can still remember how stunned we were when we found our first copy in a Canadian record store back in 1987 – and even then we had to pay plenty!)

Mag/Vampi Soul (Spain), 1959. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99 29.99
A set titled after the Peruvian powerhouse Mag Records, for which it was recorded – but an album that's really the brainchild of percussionist Niko Estrada – who leads the group here with a driving vibe that's very much on the cusp of the same sort of descarga energy that was hitting the Havana scene at the time! The rhythms are great, and the Mag recording style has all sorts of echo that really pulls out the sound – even on the piano when those notes lead in the grooves – so that the whole thing has a great sense of power, even on the mellower moments. The set includes vocals by a young Chivirico Davila – plus Vicky Zamora and Manolo Castro – on titles that include "Un Dia De Amor", "Te Para Dos", "El Negro Bembon", "La Isla Del Encanto", "Juan Jose", "Ella Y Yo", "El Munecon", "Ven Pa Mi Casa", and "Pepito".

LemuriaLemuria (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
P-Vine (Japan), Late 70s. New Copy ... $24.99 29.99
A sweet bit of funk from Hawaii – and a legendary bit of free soul that's been winning global fame for decades! Lemuria is the brainchild of Kirk Thompson – who plays piano, bass, keyboards, and vibes on this very spiritual set of tracks. Master Henry Gibson was one of the executive producers, and he also plays conga on the set – which recalls some of the more spiritual collective funky projects from the early 70s Chicago scene, given a bit of a tropical twist. Many tracks feature vocals by "The Ladies Of Lemuria" – a lovely trio that's got a bit of an Emotions sort of sound – but the jazziness of the tracks is a lot freer than the backings the Emotions ever got, with more of a west coast Fantasy Records kind of approach, touched with some Stevie Wonder-like warmth. Really great all the way through – and impeccably put together, despite the indie origins of the record.

A modern day spiritual jazz treasure – completely wonderful all the way through, and a set you might well file proudly next to your classics from John Coltrane and Pharoah Sanders! The record's as epic as it promises in the title – a three volume journey in jazz, headed by tenorist Kamai Washington, who emerges here as a tremendous leader, a hell of a writer, and a rich jazz talent in every sense of the word – carefully steering a group of musicians through work that's searing, searching, and driven with a very cosmic vibe! Tunes are often modal, and never step too far outside, but always push the boundaries – and the instrumentation is a shifting mix of keyboards, piano, trombone, trumpet, bass, drums, and percussion – plus some vocal performances from Dwight Trible and Patrice Quinn. You might know Kamasi from his work with Flying Lotus and Thundercat – the latter of whom plays bass on this set – but the album's very much his own, and very much jazz all the way through. The kind of record we're mighty proud to be offering – with tracks that include "Askim", "The Next Step", "Rhythm Changes", "Miss Understanding", "Leroy & Lanisha", "Re Run", "Seven Prayers", "Malcolm's Theme", and "The Message".

White NoiseElectric Storm (aka White Noise) ... LP
Island, 1969. Sealed ... $49.99
A wonderfully spaced-out album of electronic rock from the early days of Island Records! White Noise are a bit like Silver Apples – mixing trippy rock with odd electronic twists that are all very much in a heady late 60s sort of way. But the "rock" component of the album is a very small one – and the record's got equal parts of the audio trickery of contemporaneous work by Bruce Haack or Jon Appleton. Most of the record is the brainchild of David Vorhaus, but the record also features a bit of drum work by Paul Lytton (who would later do a lot of electronics himself), plus oddly-keyed strings and some goofy vocals from Annie Bird. Tracks include "Love Without Sound", "Here Come the Fleas", and the very long cuts "The Visitation" and "Black Mass". US pressing of the album issued under White Noise in the UK.

Ace/Kent (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $12.99 18.99
A fantastic entry in this excellent series – in part because more than half of the music here appears for the first time ever! Yet despite the unreleased status of the tracks, they definitely live up to the "masterpieces" promised by the title – great grooves from a time when more sophisticated production was coming into soul music, but never in a way that was too commercial or chartbound! Instead, these tracks mix all the raw vocals and righteous energy of the early 70s with some more sophisticated styles of arrangement and production – really taking soul music to a new level for the growing generation of the time – with results that were so ahead of their time, even the cuts here that got pressed on wax hardly got much circulation back in the day! The whole thing's wonderful – and titles include "Have A Good Time" by Maggabrain, "Don't Play Me Cheap" by Foxfire with Johnny E Adams, "I Want You" by Cynic, "Bedroom Eyes" by Betty Everett, "Happy Times" by Ramona King, "Higher Than High" by Joe Graham, "Let's Make A Move" by Ronnie McNeir, "Second Time Around" by The Exportations, "Must Have Had Company" by Elayne Starr, "Hobody" by Margie Joseph, "You Could Have Tried" by Karen Sanders Group, "I'll See You In Hell First (alt take)" by Phillip Mitchell, "You Done Let The Daylight Catch You" by Second Resurrection, "You & Me Baby" by Joe Hinton, and "Doo Doop Dee Deep Doot Doo" by George Semper.

The semi-concept album traces the woes, worries, and hopes of a British family, as one half is on the verge of emigration to Australia. The work comes out of the sort of songwriting that Ray Davies had been perfecting on albums like Village Green and Something Else – but the overall style is more sophisticated, yet not nearly as self-indulgent as some of the 70s concept clunkers. Instead, the songs are brilliantly tight, and stand on their own well past the concept of the original album.

Tribe/P-Vine (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The rare first version of Message From The Tribe – still done with all the Detroit underground qualities of the better-known versions – but with a completely different song list overall! As with the more-circulated versions, the record is the brainchild of saxophonist Wendell Harrison and trombonist Phil Ranelin – and the pair work together with other key players from the spiritual avant scene in their city at the start of the 70s – Marcus Belgrave and Charles Moore on trumpets, Will Austin on bass, Ike Daney on drums, and Charles Eubanks on some mighty nice Fender Rhodes! All group members handle other instrumentation too – usually a bit of percussion– and Jaemel Lee comes in with some vocals and poetry as well. The album features two side-long suites – the 20 minute "Evening With The Devil" on side one, with passages that include "Mary Had An Abortion", "Angry Young Men", and "Where Am I" – and the 21 minute "What Now" on side two – with passages that include "What We Need", "Angela's Dilemma", and "How Do We End All Of This Madness".
