Bill LooseCherry & Harry & Raquel (red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Beverly Hills/Real Gone, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 23.99
A fantastic sexy soundtrack from Bill Loose – scored for a Russ Meyer Sexploitation film, but handled with a care that goes way deeper than you might expect! Bill brings in some nice jazzy moments on organ and guitar – and there's also some Sunshine Pop-styled vocals at points – sometimes with lyrics, sometimes wordless singing in a cool harmony mode – all of which make the whole thing feel more like some higher-level rock-era score on a label like Uni or Tower! A few tunes are more romping and groovy – most likely for some of the sexier scenes in the film – and titles include "Toys Of Our Time", "Harry's Theme", "Here's Harry", "Cherry & Raquel", "Franklin & Cherry", and "Cherry's Theme".

VariousPillows & Prayers – Cherry Red Records 1981 to 1984 Vols 1 & 2 ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), Early 80s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $12.99 16.99
A great re-presentation of this classic compilation on Cherry Red Records! The music here really gets at the genius of Cherry Red in the post-punk years – as the label was one of the few to really embrace all the many styles that were percolating in the UK – as you'll hear on the selection of work that runs from punkish to personal, experimental to evacuated, most of it still as fresh today as it was a few decades back! Cherry Red was home to so many of our favorites back in the day – and still continues to please us in recent years too – and this set of 31 tracks is a great testament to their genius. Titles include "Plain Sailing" by Tracy Thorn, "Penelope Tree" by Felt, "Chenko" by Red Box, "A Place In The Sun" by Marine Girls, "It's A Fine Day" by Jane, "Feathering The Nest" by Kevin Hewick, "Love In Your Heart" by Kevin Coyne, "Some Things Don't Matter" by Ben Watt, "Compulsion" by Joe Crow, "Stop The Music For A Minute" by Quentin Crisp, "Don't Blink" by The Nightingales, "On My Mind" by Everything But The Girls, "Eine Symphonie Des Grauens" by The Monochrome Set, "Un Homme Et Une Femme" by Morgan Fisher, "Shouting In Cafes" by In Embrace, "I'm Used Now" by Grab Grab The Haddock, and "Walter & John" by Ben Watt & Robert Wyatt.

CreationPsychedelic Rose (180 gram red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Cherry Red/Demon (UK), 1987. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
A later effort from The Creation – that fantastic UK mod psych group from the 60s who never full got their due – but whose influence was felt strongly for generations to come! This late 80s set is a great example of that – as group members Eddie Phillips and Kenny Pickett work on lean songs that really recall the charms of The Creation at their best – done for a whole new generation of listeners and labels inspired by their groundbreaking 60s material, at a level that reminds us that sometimes the originators do it best! Titles include a remake of "Making Time" – plus "Lay The Ghost", "Psychedelic Rose", "United", "Radio Beautiful", "Spirit Called Love", and "White Night". LP, Vinyl record album

ApplejacksApplejacks ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $12.99 16.99
Underappreciated Brit Beat from the mid 60s – the complete 1964-1965 Decca recordings of the Applejacks! The 'Jacks do to the sound proudly, with punchy numbers and more delicate, slower tunes – and some choice covers. They recorded a then exclusive Lennon-McCartney tune, "Like Dreamers Do", as well as Ray Davies' "I Got To Sleep" – both of which are among the plentiful bonus tracks. Titles include "Tell Me When", "Wishing Will Never Make It So", "Over Suzanne", "Hello Josephine", "Too Much Monkey Business", "I Wonder", "See If She Cares". "What's The Matter Litttle Girl", "What'd I Say" and more. 10 bonus tracks: "Bye Bye Girl", "Make Up Or Break Up", "I'm Through", "Baby's In Black" and more. CD

FallLive At The Witch Trials (3CD set) ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), 1979. New Copy 3CD (reissue)... $26.99 30.99
This album is early Fall at their best – raw, edgey, and also surprisingly witty at times too – an amazing showcase for the young talents of Mark E Smith, and a key bridge between punk energy and the more creative styles of the post-punk generation. The sounds are incredible – especially considering the relatively standard instrumentation – and the record's really one that has The Fall working with the same sonic force as The Swell Maps – using noise as much as their guitars, and creating an amazing soundscape for the always-biting lyrics! Titles include "Mother Sister", "No Xmas For John Quays", "Rebellious Jukebox", "Frightened", "Live At The Witch Trials", "Music Scene", and "Futures & Pasts". 3CD set is an amazing package – as CD2 features 18 tracks from singles, rehearsals, and live BBC sessions – including "Various Times (extended)", "Bingo Master", "Psycho Mafia", "Repetition", "It's The New Thing", and "Last Orders (live)". CD3 features a full 12 track live show – recorded in Liverpool in 1978! CD

FashionProduct Perfect (green vinyl pressing) (2021 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Cherry Red/Modern Harmonic, 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99 25.99
A really strange little record from the glory days of Cherry Red Records – and a set that's very different than you might expect from the high-end fashion look of the cover! The group have a mix of punk and reggae elements – usually nice and lean, with the bass as upfront in the mix as the guitar, and vocals in an English-accented mode, very deep in the bassier range – which really fits the rhythms well! There's maybe kind of a Z Records feel at times – but the guitars are edgier, and echo a Leeds scene style too – on titles that include "Don't Touch Me", "Bike Boys", "Red Green & Gold", "Die In The West", "Product Perfect", and "Technofascist".

✨✧ FoxFox Box (Fox/Tails Of Illusion/Blue Hotel/Images/bonus tracks) (4CD set) ... CD
GTO/Cherry Red (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 4CD ... $29.99 38.99
A great box collection of work from Fox– a group who recorded a handful of albums in the mid 70s, all with kind of a post-glam production style that makes all the instruments come together in this cool wash of sound, which also works perfectly for the vocals of the female lead singer – the enigmatic Noosha! The tunes are catchy, but nicely not entirely commercial – really well put-together in the studio, thanks to Kenny Young's production, who's also in the group on second guitar – bowing nicely to the strong talents of Herbie Armstrong – who handles the lead with a nicely condensed sound that works perfectly for the group's approach. There's a charm here that's hard to describe – lost material between the early 70s pop years and the smoothness of AOR, with some of the best qualities of both – served up here with enough studio work that will make you a Kenny Young fan forever – on three full albums, Fox, Tails Of Illusion, and Blue Hotel – plus the bonus Images selection of other tracks, and other bonus tracks too – 56 tracks in all, with a big booklet of notes!

Cherry Red (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 4CD ... $32.99 40.99
Here's a set that may well be titled "The Road To Raw Power" – as the set features 4CDs' worth of material that Iggy Pop recorded with The Stooges to lead up to the final version of their 1973 masterpiece – the groundbreaking Raw Power album on Columbia! The set offers up a great portrait of the group shifting a bit from their Elektra years – really refining their music with tracks that included familiar numbers from the album, plus some surprises too – recorded over the space of a year in London, Detroit, LA, and New York! A few songs get maybe a bit too many versions here – like "Raw Power" and "I Got A Right", the last of which has over 10 different takes – but there's lots of other gems in the 57 track set – and titles include "Cock In My Pocket", "Gimme Danger", "Rubber Legs", "I'm So Glad", "Old King Life Forever", "Look So Sweet", "Move Ass Baby", "My Girl Hates My Heroin", "I'm A Man", "Mellow Down Easy", "Hey Baby", "She Creatures Of The Hollywood Hills", "Open Up & Bleed", "Born In A Trailer", "I Need Somebody/Sweet Child/I Like The Way You Walk", and "Cry For Me/Pinpoint Eyes".

MomusPhilosophy Of Momus ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), 1995. Used ... $4.99
One of the last truly brilliant albums from Momus – even if it's got a few dodgy tracks! The problem with this one is that it's a lot longer than his albums for Creation – 19 tracks in all, about 8 or 9 of which should have stayed in the ash bin. But amongst those clunkers, there's some really incredible work – perfect little tunes that have all the dark edgey quality of earlier years, with a well-composed pop sensibility that gives them more hooks than a room full of coat racks. Some of these tunes are incredible treasures, the kind we'd never want to part with. Our favorites include "Red Pyjamas", "Slide Projector Lie Detector", "I Had A Girl", "Paranoid Acoustic Seduction Machine", and "The Loneliness Of Lift Music". CD

There's a band backing him up, but they're sort of in the background, and you can't hear them that well because Rudy's thundering voice is booming out over tracks like "Hell Of A Blow Job", "Crack Me Some Nuts", "Grow By The Minute", and "Fast Black".

NightingalesPigs On Purpose (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Cherry Red/Call Of The Void (UK), 1983. New Copy 2CD ... $13.99 14.99
A brilliant bit of work from the UK scene of the early 80s – a group formed out of the ashes of The Prefects, and driven strongly by the uniquely bristling energy of frontman Robert Lloyd! The record's got lots of fantastically jagged moments – punk into post-punk, but without the freer frenzy of The Fall – maybe more the well-rooted basslines of Gang Of Four, although the style of The Nightingales is very different! Lloyd's vocals and presence are wonderful – and the songs are laced together with all these fast, jagged guitar lines that are fantastic – a bit like those from the Ron Johnson label scene to come. Tracks include "Blood For Dirt", "Start From Scratch", "One Mistake", "It Lives Again", "Joking Apart", "Yeah, It's OK", "Under The Lash", "Blisters", "Don't Blink", "Elvis The Last Ten Days", and "Make Good". 2CD version is filled with loads of extra material – tracks that include "Seconds", "Idiot Strength", "Inside Out", "Paraffin Brain", "Under The Lash", and "Elvis The Last Ten Days" – plus rare live material and demos too!

OutsidersCount For Something – Albums, Demos, Live, & Unreleased 1976 to 1978 (5CD set) ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 5CD ... $34.99 50.99
A huge selection of work from the Outsiders – not the group who recorded famously for Capitol in the late 60s, but an early UK punk combo who features some fantastic vocals and guitar from the young Adrian Borland! The Outsiders definitely have a sound that's in the spirit of 1977 – short, sharp, and very tight – but Borland also has chops on the guitar that most of his contemporaries do not – which means that even in the small space of these cuts, you'll get some guitar solos that link the music both backwards towards some more expansive British work, and the sound of the American scene of the 80s – when early punk groups started to learn their instruments, and solo a bit more. That makes for a quality that's really out of time – fitting for the UK mid 70s scene, but also opening up to so much more too, especially with the scope of music included in the set! The package features the full albums Calling On Youth and Close Up, the One To Infinity EP, two more CDs' worth of demos and unissued songs, and a final CD of a live performance from 1977! 71 tracks in all, and a big booklet of notes.

PentanglePentagle – The Albums 1968 to 1972 (Pentangle/Sweet Child/Basket Of Light/Cruel Sister/Reflection/Solomon's Seal – plus bonus tracks) (7CD set) ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 7CD ... $64.99
An incredible run of music from a really legendary band – a quintet who were as important to the British folk scene as Fairport Convention – and one who worked with an equally hip sort of vibe! Where that group featured key work from a young Richard Thompson and Sandy Denny, this one features mindblowing guitars from John Renbourn and Bert Jansch – a duo who would already be fantastic enough on their own, but who really open up in the sound of the group – way past their own wonderful albums of just a few years before! Part of the strength of Pentangle likes in the vocals of Jaqui McShee – a singer who's clearly got an ear for jazz, and brings in a strong sense of improvisation and extrapolation – as do both guitarists in the music. The bass is also fantastic – handled by Danny Thompson, who also seems to be a jazzman at heart – given the way he bends and shades things, at a level that no folk group ever would do. Percussionist Terry Cox is the remaining member of the group – nicely understated, and working with Thompson in this way that makes for these cool gentle grooves that Renbourn or Jansch never would have hit on their own. Every record here is a gem – and the set not only includes all six albums (one of which is a double) in these tiny LP-styled sleeves, it also features an insane number of bonus tracks too – and a huge book on the group and their music. 115 tracks in all – including 54 bonus tracks, a number of which are previously unreleased!

VaporsWaiting For The Weekend – The United Artists & Liberty Recordings (New Clear Days/Magnets/bonus tracks) (4CD set) ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), Early 80s. New Copy 4CD ... $34.99 50.99
Your collection of work by The Vapors just got a whole lot bigger – because this 4CD set adds a lot to the group's small catalog that originally just included two full albums! First up is the album New Clear Days – a set that's maybe best remembered for one big hit, but which has a rock-solid sound all the way through! The group hail from the UK, and they've got a strong sort of Jam flavor going on here – songs that are short and fast, but super-catchy too – more tunefulness than snark, with a small current of politics in the mix too! That one hit is "Turning Japanese" – a song that most folks know, even if they don't know the group's name – and it's nestled nicely here alongside cuts that include "Waiting For The Weekend", "Letter From Hiro", "News At Ten", "Sixty Second Interval", "Cold War", and "Spring Collection". Next up is Magnets – the overlooked second album from The Vapors – a set that's every bit as tuneful and catchy as their first – a blend of early punk modes with a growing sense of songcraft – maybe in the same place at the moment as work by The Undertones, or even The Jam – with whom the group have a bit of a connection! As with their debut, the set's filled with catchy songs that should have gotten them a lot more play at the time – a nice edge, and never too polished for a bigger label – with titles that include "Can't Talk Anymore", "Johnny's In Love Again", "Spiders", "Isolated Case", "Live At The Marquee", "Daylight Titans", and "Magnets". 4CD set features 54 more bonus tracks – including alternative versions of both of the core albums, a Live At The Rainbow set from 1979, and titles that include "Galleries For Guns", "Jimmie Jones (single)", "Sunstroke", "Prisoners", "Here Comes The Judge (live)", "Billy", "Wasted", "Talk Talk", and "Move (demo)".

Working WeekWorking Nights (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Virgin/Cherry Red (UK), 1985. New Copy 2 CDs ... $14.99 21.99
One of the greatest soul groups from the UK in the 80s – a real bright spot in the years before Soul II Soul and the rise of acid jazz – and a set we'd rank right up there with Sade's best work of the time! Working Week have a very jazzy sound at their core – acoustic rhythms, and a strong commitment to jazz at the core – no surprise, given that two of the group's three members were previously involved with Weekend! The third member is the lovely Juliette Roberts – easily one of the best Brit soul singers of the time – and an artist who really helps push some of the more American influences in the group's music – while still giving the whole thing a bit of a London sparkle, too. The mix is sublime, and the whole album's great – full of classic cuts that include "Autumn Boy", "No Cure No Pay", "Sweet Nothing", "Who's Fooling Who", "Thought I'd Never See You Again", and "Venceremos". Amazing reissue – with a full bonus CD, and a whopping 15 extra tracks! Working Week were early proponents of really reworking tunes for singles, especially with jazzy elements – as you'll hear on cuts that include "Veceremos (jazz dance special 12")", "Afoche", "Storm Of Light (inst)", "Bottom End", "Stella Marina (main mix)", "Inner City Blues (urbane guerilla mix)", "Who's Fooling Who (dance version)", "Venceremos (7" bossa version)", "Stella Marina (full rap)", "Pepe's Samba (live)", and "Murphy's Law (live)".

Various1978 – The Year The UK Turned Day-Glo (3CD set) ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), 1978. New Copy 3CD ... $24.99
The title's maybe a bit misleading – as most folks think of day-glo as a color associated with some of the most throwaway culture of the 80s – but the brightness of the hue definitely marks the big explosion in styles during the key British year of 1978 – a time when the punk revolution of 1977 opened the door for a big range of modes to follow! It might be said that the post-punk years came immediately after the initial days of punk – and they definitely begin here, as hard and fast modes are mixed with more unusual styles that include mod revival moments, electronic experiments, and even some offbeat pop – expressions of humor, anger, and a shifting political landscape – served up as an amazing document of the creative intensity of the time! As with other Cherry Red boxes, the overall package is great – a huge amount of notes to support the 79 tracks within – a diverse array of music from Blue Steam, The Others, UK Subs, The Jam, Monochrome Set, Wreckless Eric, Spizzoil, Public Image Ltd, 999, The Stranglers, Japan, The Only Ones, Magazine, Alternative TV, Slush, Time Machine, Eater, The Bozos, Tyla Gang, Ed Banger, No Sweat, The VIPs, John Cooper Clarke, Scritti Politti, Penetration, Stiff Little Fingers, Alberto Y Los Trios Paranoias, Teardrops, Coventry Automatics, Menace, Bleach Boys, Jilted John, Zones, Electric Chairs, and many more!

Cherry Red (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 4CD ... $36.99 51.99
A truly incredible collection – even more wonderful than we might have guessed from the title and cover – and both of those are already pretty darn appealing! This package might well be the most comprehensive we've ever seen on the early days of punk in England – a package that goes way past the big names, way past the classic cuts, and really digs deep into the huge explosion of indie labels that fueled the scene – creating a legacy of rare singles and amazing sounds that the British scene hadn't seen in years! If you dig the Sex Pistols or Clash, there's dozens of other tunes here to love – some by artists you'll know from later fame, represented here on very early tracks – and lots more from acts who maybe only gave the world a handful of brilliant singles. The presentation is as stunning as the music – 111 tracks on 4CDs, inside a heavy 64 page book-style jacket – with page after page of notes on each song and band, and lots of images as well. Consider this whole thing an overdue primer on all the punk you missed – even if you lived back in the day – and lose yourself in the huge array of tracks by groups who include The Radiators From Space, Puncture, Some Chicken, The Panik, The Only Ones, Suspects, Tueway Army, The Boys, Acme Sewage Co, Raped, Bazoomis, Menace GLC, Sids, Rudi, Art Attack, Angelic Upstarts, Mean Street, Poison Girls, Chelsea, Demon Preacher, Leyton Brothers, The Dole, Riff Raff, The Tights, Social Security, Nicky & The Dots, No Way, The Wall, Hollywood Brats, Disco Zombies, Spizzoil, Horrorcomic, The Cravats, and lots lots more!

Cold wave completists, eat your heart out – because this incredible 4CD set is overflowing with early analogue electronic gems from the UK scene – served up in a really beautiful book-style package that's overflowing with notes to support the superb selection of tracks! The music here is definitely on the colder side of the spectrum – that initial impulse on the UK scene to rework some of the German electronics of the period with leaner modes, and take them into even more inventive territory during the post-punk years – before things got too commercial in UK pop, or too overburdened with industrial posturing! The music here is from those great early years of labels like Cherry Red, Rough Trade, and other key UK indies – and the package features 60 titles that include "Fractured Smile" by Inter City Static, "RAM" by The Klingons, "Computer Bank" by Five Times Of Dust, "Holiday Camp" by Blancmange, "I Am Your Shadow" by Colin Potter, "Joe Goes To New York" by Adrian Smith, "Sedation" by O Yuki Conjugate, "In The Room" by Third Door On The Left, "Eco Beat" by DC3, "What A Day" by Throbbing Gristle, "Western Vein" by Konstruktivist, "Music To Save The World By" by Alan Burnham, "Kodak Ghosts Run Amok" by Eyeless In Gaza, "New Muzak" by Instant Automatons, "Robot Dance" by Sea Of Wires, "Mzui (extract)" by Gilbert & Lewis, and "Muslin Gauze Muslim Prayer" by Muzlimgauze.

Pipe/Cherry Red (UK), 1980. Used 2 CDs ... Just Sold Out!
A great 2CD set – one that brings together two rare installments of this Miniatures series of music, collage, and sound art! First up is the 1979 edition – a really fantastic little record – and one that has a concept that's unlike anything else we can think of! Morgan Fisher presents 51 different "miniatures" – songs that are a minute or less, all stacked up to make a record that's somewhere between the DIY post-punk spirit of the Rough Trade years, and some of the more offbeat, avant work of the electronic/musique concrete generation! The mix of artists is fantastic, and the brevity of the songs means that if there's something you don't like, you'll quickly be in the company of the next song – and Fisher should not only be hailed for the way that he put the whole thing together, but also for the amazing selection of artists – a lineup that includes Kevin Coyne, David Bedford, Fred Frith, Robert Wyatt, John Otway, Quentin Crisp, Michael Nyman, Pete Seeger, David Cunningham, Ron Geesin, Robert Fripp, George Melly, Steve Miller, Lol Coxhill, Neil Innes, Maggie Nicols, Andy Partridge, Stinky Winkles, and many others! CD2 features the installment from the year 2000 – with 61 more pieces, done in a similar spirit, but with a shift in technology – in a lineup that includes contributions from Gavin Bryars, Jan Campion, Robert Fripp, Dissidenten, David Cunningham, Chris Butler, John Paul Jones, Ottmar Liebert, Penguin Cafe Orchestra, Trans Global Underground, Jane Siberry, Terry Riley, Hermeto Pascoal, Linton Kwesi Johnson, and many others!

Cherry Red (UK), 1980. New Copy 3CD ... $24.99
A great little set that brings together the big bang of electro pop that hit the UK scene at the start of the 80s – work from that moment when previous, more experimental strands of music from the initial post-punk years started cleaning things up, going for hooks, and making some pretty darn catchy music in the process! Yet the work here is also maybe still far from some of the overplayed big hits of a few years later – that key moment when early experimenters were crafting some great tunes, but still not sounding too commercial – and sometimes enticing other artists who didn't always record in this mode to join in on the fun! And if you think you know all the sounds from this time, this box set might give you a big surprise – as there's plenty of work here that we didn't expect – not just more obscure tunes by bigger names, but also some obscure artists who fit right into the groove – all given plenty of coverage in the large booklet of notes. 3CD set features 58 tracks in all - with work by The Passage, Berlin Blondes, Buggles, M, Silicon Teens, Rockets, John Foxx, Science, Fad Gadget, Zeus, OMD, Pauline Murray & The Invisible Girls, Dark Day, Der Plan, Kevin Harrison, Japan, Dalek I, Taxi Girl, Systems, Karel Fialka, Nini Raviolette, The Korgis, Alex Fergusson, The Metronomes, Lori & The Chameleons, and others.

A huge slice of work from a crucial year in electronic music – all tracks from 1981, a time when the experiments of the 70s were giving way to more tuneful recordings of the 80s – at a level that would soon dominate the world of pop around the globe! Yet although some of these artists would later have top 40 hits, much of the work here has more of an edge than you'd expect – music that mixes some of the darker sounds of the post-punk years with a more song-based approach that has some of the better singers really hitting their stride, while others let the electronics dominate a bit more – often with sounds that are more analogue than digital! Cherry Red was one of the key labels issuing some of this music at the time – and they do an equally great job here by bringing together tracks from their own catalog and work from other labels too – a big package that features 51 titles in all, detailed notes, and selections by Nw Musik, Richard Bone, Dramatis, YMO, Hazel O'Connor, Drinking Electricity, Yello, Chris & Cosey, Schleimer K, Naked Lunch, Blue Zoo, AK 47, John Foxx, Portion Control, Analysis, Fallout Club, Second Layer, The Passage, Virna Lindt, Eyeless In Gaza, The Limit, Visage, Japan, Fasion, Voice Farm, and many others.

✨✧ VariousNME C86 (3CD set) ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), Mid 80s. New Copy 3CD ... $29.99 38.99
A amazing look at the British indie scene during one of its greatest stretches – the mid 80s period when it seemed like new labels and new bands were springing up every week! The 2CD set takes its name from the influential C86 collection put together by NME at the time to showcase some of the best work – but this version expands the lineup to a whopping 72 tracks in all, and really stretches the scope to include some real lost gems. There's plenty of great work here from a time before the scene got mis-led by dance rhythms and too many stimulants – a cornucopia of long-lost labels and groups – most of them jangle pop wonders with great talents for penning simple, catchy little tunes! Titles include "World's No Place" by The Jasmine Minks, "Everything's Going Right" by The Avons, "Don't Slip Up" by Meat Whiplash, "Billy Liar" by North Of Cornwalls, "Outback Jazz" by Blue Aeroplanes, "Run To The Temple" by Bogshed, "Therese" by The Bodines, "Happy Head" by Mighty Lemon Drops, "Velocity Girl" by Primal Scream, "This Boy Can Wait" by The Wedding Present, "New Way" by Big Blame, "Console Me" by We've Got A Fuzzbox, "Inside" by 14 Iced Bears, "Darkess & Colour" by The Railway Children, and "Hedonist Hat" by Pigbros.

Cherry Red (UK), 1980s. New Copy 5 CDs ... $54.99 74.99
A sprawling 5CD box set of benchmark 80s indie pop from the UK – chronologically sequenced (for the most part) from the beginning to the end of the decade – with so many brilliant songs both straight-up classic and others that are relatively forgotten! Incredible stuff from the post punk guitar years, to dreamier and more psych steeped sounds, to the dancier grooves late in the decade that laid the groundwork for the 90s. Classics and early singles by Prefab Sprout, TV Personalities, Everything But The Girl, Pulp, Biff Bang Pow!, Primal Scream, The Wedding Present, The Soup Dragons, House Of Love, The Shamen, The Rosehips, Pop Will Eat Itself, The Wonder Stuff, The Stone Roses, Inspiral Carpets, James, The Jesus & Mary Chain, Lloyd Cole & The Commotion, The Darling Buds, The Boo Radleys and many, many more! More than 130 tracks in all – with a thick booklet of notes! Kind of like a Nuggets for the indie 80s British scenes! SO many great songs, but to name a few: "Revolutionary Spirit" by Wild Swans, "The Missionary" by Josef K, "Lions In The Garden" by Prefab Sprout, "A Picture Of Dorian Gray (Live)" by TV Personalities, "Just Like Honey (demo October '84)" by Jesus & Mary Chain, "Oblivious" by Aztec Camera, "Velocity Girl" by Primal Scream, "Go Out And Get 'Em, Boy" by The Wedding Present, "If I Said" by The Darling Buds, "Son Of A Gun (demo)" by The LAs, "The Hardest Thing In The World" by Stone Roses, "Catweazle" by The Boo Radleys and many, many more!

Cherry Red (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3CD ... $29.99 38.99
A funny thing happened to British music after the initial explosion of punk in the late 70s – it got surprisingly funky, in all sorts of weird ways that helped the new music cross over to the dancefloor – maybe inspired by American funk and soul, but coming off with a very different vibe overall! The basslines are key – and some of these groups really make amazing use of the brooding sounds of the instrument, picked up a few notches in pace – while others might include some snapping drums that could come as a surprise if you were expecting things to only stay in the moody dark corners of the postpunk universe! This package is a great overview of the way the groove picked up on the UK scene at the end of the 70s – very different than American disco, and with an offbeat current that then influenced the New York scene in the early 80s, and went on to have ripples in Chicago, both for Wax Trax and the early house music artists too. 3CD set features a very detailed booklet of notes – and 49 gems by artists who include The Passage, Blue Rondo A La Turk, A Certain Ratio, Tones On Tail, Kissing The Pink, Thomas Leer, Fashion, Wide Boy Awake, Vicious Pink, Modern Romance, C Cat Trance, Animal Magic, Surface Mutants, Furniture, Pop Group, Machine Gun Hogg & Co, Glaxo Babies, Family Fodder, London Underground, Nightmares In Wax, Haircut 100, 23 Skiddoo, Ian Dury, Shock, Visage, Paul Haig, and others.

Cherry Red (UK), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy 5CD ... $44.99 65.99 About December 4, 2021
A killer box set filled with some of the darker sounds to spring from the (predominantly) UK postpunk scenes – not just straightforward, black-clad, lacy-gloved goth – but a huge number of diverse, compelling tracks! This isn't the cliched goth of later years – as these are the original tracks that later spurred that movement – a shift from the anarch of the early punk years, through the nihilism of post-punk, to a darker acceptance of the shadowy corners of existence! Many tracks have eerie, dark or ominous overtones, but there is a huge variety of of sounds and styles – from raw to ornate, aggressive to ethereal. Includes tracks by Joy Division, Public Image Ltd, The Cure, Bauhaus, Cocteau Twins, Adam & The Ants, Dead Can Dance, Sisters Of Mercy and similarly legendary names– but the included songs are often pretty obscure, and they are lots of relatively underground and unknown acts, too. 80+ songs on 5CDs, with a nice booklet. Includes "Shadowplay" by Joy Division, "The Black Cat" by UK Decay, "Beautiful Monsters" by Folk Devils, "The Hanging Garden" by The Cure, Gallery Of Shame" by Low Life, "She Cries Alone" by Skeletal Family, "Tabletalk" by Adam & The Ants, "In Our Angelhood" by Cocteau Twins, "Stigmata Martyr" by Bauhaus, "Love Puppets" by Legendary Pink Dot, and many more!

Cherry Red (UK), Early 80s. New Copy 3CD ... $29.99 38.99
A really lovely little collection, and a set that digs deep into a time when things were moving from the fringes to the mainstream in British music – but with groups that still mostly had a real edge and a strong sense of invention! The work here is setting the scene for some of the big global hits to come in the second half of the 80s and start of the 90s – as the English experiments of the post-punk years were finding ways to be a bit more tuneful, but without shaking off the politics, songwriting, and production techniques that made them so revolutionary at the time. As with other Cherry Red box sets, the track list here is superb – and supported by an equally superb set of notes – in a package of 74 tracks that includes work by The Loft, Higsons, Twinsets, Yeah Yeah Noh, Scritti Politti, The Nightingales, Weekend, Everything But The Girl, Friends Again, Pulp, Jane & Barton, Wah Heat, Teardrop Explodes, Scars, Mo-Dettes, Girls At Our Best, Vic Godard & The Subway Set, Josef K, Wild Wans, Jowe Head, Art Objects, Monochrome Set, Marine Girls, Trixie's Big Red Motorbike, In Embrace, Dislocation Dance, Microdisney, Grab Grab The Haddock, Jasmine Minks, Pale Fountains, and many others!

Cherry Red (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 5CD ... $44.99 65.99
Great sounds from some of our favorite years of the British scene – those moments right after punk first exploded, and a generation of young English artists took off in so many different musical directions! The era's been labeled as post-punk, but what makes it really unique is that the label hardly does the music justice – as the time had such a rich array of sounds and styles, it would be impossible to sum of the vibe in just a few short words! There's definitely some punk elements in the music, but there's also electronic moments, sweeter songs, noisy bits, compressed prog inspirations, and even some occasional witty elements – with songwriting that's really stood the test of time over the years. There have been other collections of post-punk work over the years, but we've never seen a package like this – as the 5CD set features 111 tracks in all, packaged inside a book-style cover that's overflowing with notes and images – all with a track selection that includes lots of lost gems. In other words, even if you're like us, and already love this period, you'll still find plenty of greatness here – as the whole thing's balanced well enough to please both newcomers and longtime collectors. Includes work by Dif Juz, Glaxo Babies, The Homosexuals, Ultravox, Swell Maps, Clock DVD, Maximum Joy, Section 25, The Cravats, Native Hipsters, Josef K, Art Objects, The Passions, Big In Japan, Fischer-Z, Family Fodder, Girls At Our Best, Ludus, Boots For Dancing, In Camera, The Disco Zombies, Medium Medium, Alternative TV, The Nightingales, My Captains, Five Or Six, Steve Diggle, Dance Chapter, Fire Engines, Spoon Fazer, and many others!

✨✧ Nucleus & Ian CarrTorrid Zone – The Vertigo Recordings 1970 to 1975 (Elastic Rock/We'll Talk About It/Solar Plexus/Belladonna/Labyrinth/Roots/Under The Sun/Snakehips/Alley Cat) (6CD set) ... CD
Vertigo/Cherry Red (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 6CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Seminal sounds from trumpeter Ian Carr and his Nucleus group of the early 70s – maybe one of the few jazz rock groups that was ever able to work with a fair bit of jazz in their sound! Unlike his contemporaries, who often started in rock first, then added some horns – Carr was already coming off an important 60s legacy, co-leading a group with tenorist Don Rendell – so the vibe here is like an extension of that very rhythmic, very tonal modern work – but with the addition of electrified instrumentation – thanks to the guitar work of Chris Spedding and keyboards of Karl Jenkins – who plays some fantastic electric lines throughout! The vibe is maybe a bit in the territory of early 70s electric work by Miles Davis and Donald Byrd (pre-Mizell for the latter) – but there's maybe a farther-reaching concept at play on many of the records, at a level that always helped the group cross over to the prog crowd, and move beyond just a straight jazz audience. Other key players include Brian Smith on tenor and soprano saxes – a really fantastic part of the lineup – plus Jeff Clyne on bass and John Marshall on drums – and as the albums move along a bit, the lineup shifts slightly, and also opens up to guests who include Kenny Wheeler and Harry Beckett on trumpets, Tony Levin on drums, and Norma Winstone on voice. And although some of the albums have been reissued before, this is the first set to really dive in completely – and bring together material from the Vertigo Records releases that include Elastic Rock, We'll Talk About It Later, Solar Plexus, Belladonna, Labyrinth, Roots, Under The Sun, Snakehips Etcetera, and Alley Cat.

✨✧ VariousStill In A Dream – A Story Of Shoegaze 1988 to 1995 (5CD set) ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), Late 80s/Early 90s. New Copy 5 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Psychedelia meets British pop – in a really special musical moment that's forever come to be known as shoegaze! The work here comes from a time when the UK scene was really moving past punk rock, and starting to let its guitarists open up in the kind of longer, fuzzy solos that were big in the late 60s – along with all the sort of heady production modes that made such music sound even better, but always with the kind of leaner, more focused lessons learned from the post-punk years! The result is a special sort of sound that can trip out as needed, but never get too overindulgent to lose the tune – the balance that first came to play on the early singles of Creation or 4AD, then found flower in so many other UK groups as the years went on. These glorious years are presented here in a big 5CD set – one that comes in a book-styled package with loads of notes on the music – alongside 87 tracks by artists who include Blow Up, The Honey Buzzards, Submarine, Bailter Space, The Curtain Society, Mercury Rev, An April March, Spacemen 3, The Hinnies, Spiritualized, Moose, Spitfire, Moonshake, Bark Psychosis, AR Kane, Jesus & Mary Chain, Lush, Ride, The Darkside, Velocity Girl, Bleach, Catehrine Wheel, See See Rider, Cranes, Chapterhouse, Telescopes, Sun Dial, Medicine, Sweet Jesus, Luna, Astrobrite, and many more!

✨✧ Dana GillespieWhat Memories We Make – The Complete Mainman Recordings 1971 to 1974 (Weren't Born A Man/Ain't Gonna Play No Second Fiddle/bonus tracks) ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A pair of great albums from singer Dana Gillespie – and a huge amount of bonus material too, including some rare promo and demo tracks that have never been available to the public! The set kicks off with the Weren't Born A Man album – a real turning point in the career of Dana Gillespie – a singer who started out as a British folkie in the 60s, but who really transformed through a host of different modes as the 70s moved in – including a key role in the long-running Catch My Soul stage show, and an intimate friendship with David Bowie! Gillespie's not exactly like Bowie, but on the record she does find a very special, intimate space of her own – helped partly by the production and arrangements of Mick Ronson, who also works with some of the Spiders Of Mars in the backing – and also in part by Bowie, who lets Dana sing his great tune "Andy Warhol" here in a version that's maybe even better than his own! Yet Gillespie is definitely at the helm throughout – a superb songwriter, and a great singer too – intimate one minute, bold the next, and quite far from her roots in folk. Titles include "Andy Warhol", "Weren't Born A Man", "Mother Don't Be Frightened", "All Gone", "Eternal Showman", "Dizzy Heights", and "Stardom Road (parts 1 & 2)". Ain't Gonna Play No Second Fiddle is the second album that Dana Gillespie recorded for the Mainman productions label – and one that really has her stepping out and finding a voice that's all her own! Dana's a bit hard to peg stylistically – somewhat rock, but with occasional gentleness that's borrowed from her folk roots – often given a slight glam twist in the production, but not really a glam singer at all – in part because she's often got some deeper currents in her lyrics! Gillespie's got this strength in the lead that should have made her a much bigger star – an ability to step sideways to different modes from track to track, yet make you feel like the whole thing is very much part of her own master plan. Titles include "Get My Rocks Off", "Really Love The Man", "Hold Me Gently", "Pack Your Bags", "Getting Through To Me", and "Wanderlust". 2CD set features a huge amount of interesting material – including 5 tracks from Dana's 1971 promo record that she shared with David Bowie, 5 more demos from October of 1974, after her second album – but never issued – the original demo for "Andy Warhol", an outtake of "Man Size Job", different Mick Ronson arrangements for "Lavender Hill" and "Never Knew", and the Libido single tracks "Hold On To Your Fire" and "Weren't Born A Man".

Cherry Red/Call Of The Void (UK), 1983. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A brilliant bit of work from the UK scene of the early 80s – a group formed out of the ashes of The Prefects, and driven strongly by the uniquely bristling energy of frontman Robert Lloyd! The record's got lots of fantastically jagged moments – punk into post-punk, but without the freer frenzy of The Fall – maybe more the well-rooted basslines of Gang Of Four, although the style of The Nightingales is very different! Lloyd's vocals and presence are wonderful – and the songs are laced together with all these fast, jagged guitar lines that are fantastic – a bit like those from the Ron Johnson label scene to come. Tracks include "Blood For Dirt", "Start From Scratch", "One Mistake", "It Lives Again", "Joking Apart", "Yeah, It's OK", "Under The Lash", "Blisters", "Don't Blink", "Elvis The Last Ten Days", and "Make Good". 2LP version is filled with loads of extra material – tracks that include "Seconds", "Idiot Strength", "Inside Out", "Paraffin Brain", "Under The Lash", and "Elvis The Last Ten Days" – plus rare live material and demos too!

A huge document of one of our favorite moments in the UK scene – a time that paralleled the rise of punk, but which also produced a fair bit of music in a very different vibe – even though the artists were inspired by the same sort of energy! Most of the groups here are exploding with new ideas – some loud and raw, some subtle and witty – almost all recorded with an "anything goes" quality, which includes some great ears for studio experimentation, but in a very simple way – making the few familiar instruments often sound unusual, and doing great things for the offbeat vocals too. Some of the artists here rose to greater fame in different modes a few years later, some only flashed briefly during this wonderful stretch of time – and the whole thing has a very big book-style package, with many pages of notes that really tie the whole thing together! 105 tracks in all – with work by Nightmares In Wax, Young Marble Giant, Blurt, Tesco Bombers, Au Pairs, Eater, Alternative TV, Tights, Victim, Art Attacks, Tea Set, Raincoats, Fatal Microbes, Disco Zombies, The Shapes, Spizzoil, Josef K, The Membranes, Blancmange, Sisters Of Mercy, The Fall, Scritti Politti, John Cooper Clarke, Subway Sect, They Must Be Russians, The Higsons, Sad Lovers & Giants, 23 Skidoo, Vivien Goldman, Eyeless In Gaza, Mo-Dettes, Medium Medium, and many more!

Cherry Red (UK), 1971. New Copy 3 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Maybe the greatest moment ever from Brit soundtrack genius Roy Budd – an artist who started with his roots in jazz piano, but who really explodes here in a range of groovy styles! The main title is an incredible blend of Eastern percussion and moody jazz – and other cuts bring in some trippier elements, mixed with funkier bits and warmer moments – all at a level that have Budd even outdoing the best late 60s work by Lalo Schifrin! The keyboards are often at the forefront – either acoustic or electric – and the album's got so many groovy grooves, with such variety, it's got a feel that's much richer than the usual soundtrack set. Titles include "Love Is A Four Letter Word", "Carter Takes A Train", "Looking For Someone", "The Girl In The Car", "Livin Should Be This Way", "Manhunt", "Goodbye Carter", and "Hallucinations". This fantastic 3CD set is overflowing with greatness! First, the whole thing comes in a heavy book-style cover – with dozens of pages of notes, photos, and images from the film – and CD2 features 18 more rare mixes of songs from the film – a great addition to the 22 tracks on CD1 – making for a whopping 40 tracks in all. CD3 features 19 more Roy Budd grooves, mostly from soundtracks – songs that include "Mr Funker", "Diamond Fortress", "No Cooperation", "Cassette Jazz", "How Can We Run Away", "Fear Is The Key", "Who Needs Love Anyway", "Versailles Exit", and "Jazz It Up".

A fantastic entry in the Close To The Noise Floor series – one that looks at early American experiments with electronics – but from the DIY generation that was unlocking access to technology that had previously been in the hands of bigger label artists and the academic electronic scene! The work here is a great partner to UK changes in the punk years and beyond – and, no surprise, some of these artists gained greater fame overseas, where their sounds resonated strongly with music from Sheffield, Manchester, Berlin, and other cities on the continent. And if you think you can guess what's coming, then guess again – because there's so much material here, the 4CD set really goes into some deeper, darker corners – and also pulls together work from different areas of the underground that most folks wouldn't normally connect. So while there's familiar names from labels like Ralph or RRR, there's also a lot more surprises – amidst selections by Richard Bone, Data Bank A, Tone Set, Psyche, Patrick Cowley, Mental Anguish, Controlled Bleeding, Psyclones, Lon C Diehl, Suicide, Residents, Chrome, If Bwana, Terry Riley, Geoffrey Landers, Futurisk, Dark Day, K Leimer, Hunting Lodge, Boy Dirt Car, Smersh, Steve Roach, John Bender, Ministry, Move, Nash The Slash, Tuxedomoon, and many others.

The fourth smoking volume in this wonderful series – filled with excellent pre-soul grooves all the way through! The Outta Sight label is one that we normally know for Northern Soul reissues, but in recent years they've also been handling a lot of R&B – but all with an ear towards the sounds that also appeal to fans of later soul too – which makes for a very fresh approach to material from the 50s and early 60s – and often discovery of tracks that haven't gotten any notice for years!

There's a gentle swing to the tracks that reminds us of some of the Ernestine Anderson Concord work from the period, and Jeannie plays a bit of piano as well as sings – and is joined by Jimmy on bass trombone, Red Callender on bass and tuba, and Charles McPherson on alto sax.

Contemporary/OJC, 1959. Used ... $7.99
Tomorrow may be the question, but the record screams "today!" – and even this many years after its recording, this early set by Ornette Coleman has an energy and presence that cannot be denied! The sound here is kind of a rougher take on the mode that would gel more strongly on Ornette's Atlantic albums – but even so, it's still incredibly fresh, and well worth seeking out – especially as an example of the sharper edges that were bursting forth from the once-cool west coast scene! Coleman's on alto sax and Don Cherry is on trumpet – but they're not joined by their more familiar associates, and are instead working with a more conventional rhythm team that includes either Percy Heath or Red Mitchell on bass, and Shelly Manne on drums – all clearly trying to make a bit of sense of Ornette's approach here, but in a way that also creates a great sense of tension on the record! Tracks are shortish, with great solos by Ornette and Cherry – and titles include "Tomorrow Is The Question", "Endless", "Rejoicing", "Lorraine", "Turnaround", "Tears Inside", and "Giggin". CD

Smith also handles a bit of koto, bamboo flute, and percussion – and titles include "Don Cherry – A Silver Flute Song", "Lines", "Burning Meditation/Uprising", "There Are Human Rights Blues", and "Creative Music 1 – Red Mountain Garden Wild Arises & Glacier".

Never-heard sounds from this amazing UK duo – an early 80s outfit who went by the name of Tape Recorder & Synthesizer Ensemble – a very good choice, given the instrumentation on the set! Most of the music here is relatively spare, but surprisingly tuneful – kind of in a space between early Sheffield electronics and some of the catchier electro instrumental work of the mid 80s – often tweaked with experimental production and bits of tape, but usually just based around a guitar riff, a keyboard line, and a drum machine rhythm! Both musicians were in their teens at the time, and had no further aims of mainstream fame – but the record's easily as good as the best UK indie electronics on labels like Factory, Rough Trade, or Cherry Red at the time. Titles include "Sketch 1", "Harmonium", "Electronic Rock", "Talk To Me", "Unrequited Love", "We Are So Fragile", "This Life Of Yours", and "War Machine". CD

A fantastic collection of work from the UK scene at the start of the 70s – a treasure trove of pop cuts from the time, most of which never made it across the Atlantic to our neck of the woods – and which represent a whole different world of music than you'd know from the classic rock and prog albums that usually represent the period! Instead, these are cuts that were cooked up in the studio in search of a hit – some by names that worked strongly in the 60s, others by new groups – some of whom only existed as a name on a label – but all in search of fresh sounds, groovy lyrics, and a way of putting over a tune that spoke volumes about the studio changes and advances taking place around the UK scene at the time! A number of cuts here have production that might be vaguely in glam territory, while others change up the way that vocals and guitars work together, and others evolve past Brit pop modes of the 60s – embracing psych or hard rock elements, but in a subtle way. As with other Cherry Red/Grapefruit collections of this nature, the whole thing is a stunning journey through music that we'd never have heard otherwise, and never in this much detail – presented with a big booklet of notes on all the crazy cats within – to support 85 tracks by artists who include Paintbox, Simon Turner, Mr Bloe, The Weathermen, Fumble, Posse, Gingerbread, Majority One, Jonathan King, Marmalade, Clifford T Ward, Stud Leather, Paul Gabriel, Autumn, St Cecelia, Rick Price, The Piglets, Kincade, Sweet, The Sad, Gumm, The Angelette, Grumble, Jungle Jim, Shag, Bubblerock, Harmony Grass, Terry Dactyl & The Dinosaurs, Stardust, Bill Fay, Pete Dello, Buggy, David Essex, Peter Kellern, Fickle Pickle, Touchwood, and many others!

Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $38.99 42.99
A fantastic look at the righteous current of energy that swept through American music at the end of the 60s – that huge wave of knowledge and political inspiration that still stands as one of our favorite moments in jazz and soul! The Civil Rights generation had gotten some things accomplished, but not everything – and a new wave of action arose in various scenes of the underground – not just pushing the musical formats past anything that had happened before, but also doing so with a strong message of pride and empowerment! This collection surveys some of the best tracks of that moment – and also provides a great batch of historical notes to put the whole thing in context – done in collaboration with the book of the same name, but equally great as a soundtrack and document on its own. The package is overflowing with Dusty Groove classics – and titles include "Sweet Songs" by Sarah Webster Fabio, "Surtal Ihklas" by Doug Carn, "Vibes From The Tribe" by Phil Ranelin, "Desert Fairy Princess" by Horace Tapscott & The Pan Afrikan Peoples Arkestra, "Sounds From The Bush" by The Mandingo Griot Society with Don Cherry, "Is It Too Late" by Duke Edwards & The Young Ones, "Strong Men" by David McKnight, "Black Narcissus" by Joe Henderson, "Malcolm X" by Phil Cohran & The Artistic Heritage Ensemble, "Mother Of The Future" by Carlos Garnett, "Red Black & Green" by Roy Ayers, "African Rhythms" by Oneness Of Juju, and "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised" by Gil Scott-Heron.

✨✧ VariousBanquet – The Underground Sounds Of 1969 (3CD set) ... CD
Esoteric (UK), 1969. New Copy 3CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic little set that heralds the beginning of a whole new generation in music – post-psych sounds from the year of 1969 – a time when the revolution had cooled a bit, but new waves of creative activity were really bubbling underground in the UK scene – as all these many groups and singers were striding forth to make their own sorts of sounds, after borrowing bits from others in previous years! The music here is more compact than later prog, but equally jamming – and some of the artists were born from blues and R&B inspirations, but are really moving into their own territory here – helping forge styles that would set the pace for so much more music to come in the 70s! The groups aren't completely obscure – most were recording for the hipper sides of bigger labels – but the tracks here often mark a point when they were just leaping off, a bit before hitting bigger fame – mixed with a few others that never hit the heights later on. As always with these boxes from Cherry Red/Esoteric, the presentation, set list, and notes are great – supporting 52 tracks from groups that include Colosseum, High Tide, Bloodwyn Pig, Jack Bruce, Pete Brown & Piblokto, Free, Jethro Tull, Genesis, East Of Eden, Man, Fat Mattress, Locomotive, Eyes Of Blue, Fairport Convention, The Deviants, Sunforest, Taste, Ten Years After, Mighty Baby, Michael Chapman, and many more!

✨✧ Don CherryLive At Cafe Montmartre 1966 (with bonus DVD) ... CD
ESP, 1966. Used CD/DVD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A rare slice of work from trumpeter Don Cherry – music that's every bit as forward-thinking as his three classic 60s albums on Blue Note! The session is a live one, but the sound is quite strong – recorded up-close, and with great focus on Cherry's incredible horn work – as well as the efforts of the rest of the group, which includes Gato Barbieri on tenor, Karl Berger on vibes, Bo Stief on bass, and Aldo Romano on drums. There's a definite "new thing" vibe going on here – a style that's similar to some of Archie Shepp's work of the period, or that of some of Cherry's Blue Note contemporaries. Tracks are all long, and titles include "Complete Communion", "Neopolitan Suite", "Cocktail Piece", and "Free Improvisation Music Now". CD

Albert Ayler with Don CherryEuropean Recordings Autumn 1964 Revisited ... CD
Hat Art/Ezz-Thetics (Switzerland), 1964. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99
A huge 2CD set – one that features important European work that saxophonist Albert Ayler recorded with trumpeter Don Cherry! CD1 brings together six tracks from Albert Ayler's Hilversum Radio sessions from 1964 – plus an additional three tracks recorded in Denmark a few months earlier! The first six titles are a famous performance by a famous group set loose on a European tour in 1964 – Ayler on tenor, Don Cherry on cornet, Gary Peacock on bass, and Sunny Murry on drums – recorded in The Netherlands for a small audience in a Dutch radio studio! The setting is a wonderful one – a mix of the live freedoms that would really let Ayler stretch out – especially when playing overseas – but recorded with the clarity of some of his studio albums for ESP – that sharp-edged sound that really highlights the groundbreaking style of his playing! The rest of the group here is equally great, and Murray is completely freed up from rhythm at points, to fly beautifully with the rest – on titles that include "Angels", "CAC", "Infant Happiness", "Ghosts", and "No Name". The same group performs on the final three tracks – recorded in Copenhagen for Danish Radio, with an equally great level of clarity – on "Saints", "Spirits", and "Vibrations". The interplay between Ayler and Cherry is especially great – echoing the latter's material with Ornette Coleman, but with a different sort of edge! CD2 features amazing live material from 1964 – work that was recorded at the Club Montmartre in Copenhagen, right around the same time that Albert Ayler recorded his album for Debut Records – and a set that has his quartet in even more firey formation overall! The tracks are long, and Ayler is completely unbridled – at a level that really shows not only how much of a leader he was to the American avant underground, but what an inspiration he was to the European free scene too – who could only help but take a big cue from his work here on tenor! The group also features equally wonderful work from Don Cherry on cornet – sounding quite different than when with Ornette Coleman – plus bass from Gary Peacock, whose dark tones really set the mood – and drums from Sunny Murray, who is also at an explosive point in his career. The material is remastered wonderfully, with permission from Albert Ayler's estate – and titles include "Mothers", "Saints", "Vibrations", Spirits", "Children", and a shorter "Spirits". CD

Gearbox (UK), 1965. New Copy ... $12.99 13.99
Never-issued work from Don Cherry – and a really key piece of the puzzle in the career of this legendary trumpeter! The recordings were done for Swedish Radio, with great fidelity – more than just live tracks captured in a club, and instead some really thoughtful material that marks an early pairing of Cherry's talents with the Swedish scene that he would soon call home! Don plays cornet, and the music is maybe a bit inside compared to some of his later Swedish experiments – but still pretty amazing, and a great bridge from his work with Ornette Coleman and Sonny Rollins. Players include Mogens Bollerup on tenor, Atli Bjorn on piano, Benny Nielsen on bass, and Simon Koppel on drums – and titles include the Cherry originals "Priceless", "Nigeria", and "The Ambassador From Greenland" – plus a reading of "You Took Advantage Of Me".

Don CherryLive At Cafe Montmartre 1966 Vol 2 ... CD
ESP, 1966. New Copy ... $12.99 15.99
Incredible work from Don Cherry – a previously unreleased live date from the 60s, but every bit as great as any of his better-known records from the decade! The sound here is really amazing – a hip blend of Cherry's trumpet with tenor from Gato Barbieri and vibes from Karl Berger – working here in a piano-less setting that has all three players snaking together beautifully as the tunes unfold – freed up a bit to explore some really bold new territory, yet always held together with the same sense of inherent rhythm you'd find on Cherry's Blue Note albums from the late 60s. Rhythm is by Bo Stief on bass and Aldo Romano on drums – both players who really help the tunes take on some great structures – especially during the group's extended take on "Orfeu Negro", a number taken in very similar ways to Archie Shepp's Fire Music version of "Girl From Ipanema"! Other numbers are great too – and include "Remembrance", "Spring Is Here", "Suite For Albert Ayler", and "Complete Communion", done in a 22 minute take. CD

Don CherryMusic Wisdom Love ... LP
Cacophonic (UK), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 26.99
One of the weirdest Don Cherry albums you'll ever hope to hear – and that's saying a lot, given the range of incredible albums the man has given us over the years! The music here was recorded for a French film based on the music, poetry, and "antics" of Cherry – done in the Saravah Records studios in 1969, around the same time as Cherry's albums for the BYG/Actuel label on the Paris scene – but with a much looser, more freewheeling vibe overall! The first side of the record features music done with Karl Berger – in a mix of piano, percussion, wood flutes, electronics, and pocket trumpet – shifting many times in terms of tone and spirit, with Cherry at his most organic. Side two features most of the same music, but with Anthony Braxton joining in – as well as poetry at some parts – in the complete edit that was used in the film. A fantastic document in so many ways – of the musicians, of post-68 Paris, and even of European avant cinema! LP, Vinyl record album

Don Cherry's New ResearchesOrganic Music Theatre Festival De Chateauvallon 1972 ... LP
INA/Blank Forms, 1972. New Copy 2LP ... $33.99 About November 12, 2021
An incredible performance from the great Don Cherry – one that's maybe the most perfect summation we've ever heard of his ability to embrace a globe's worth of influences and make them his own! The set was recorded live at a French jazz festival in 1972, and it has a very compelling group known as the New Researches Ensemble – a lineup that includes Nana Vasconcelos on percussion and berimbau, Christer Bothen on ngoni and piano, Dodou Gouirand on soprano and alto, and Moki Cherry on tanpura – all working in a larger stage setting designed by Moki, with puppet theater as well! The most striking thing might well be the vocals – much more prominent here than on other Cherry recordings, and very soulful as well – blended with jazz expressions and global instrumentation, with a vibe that's almost like some of the best work on the Saravah label during the period. The whole thing's fantastic – a great lost chapter of a musician whose well never seems to run dry – with titles that include "Resa", "Butterfly Friend", "Elixir", "Amazwe", "Witchi Tai To", "Ganesh", "North Brazilian Ceremonial Hymn", and "Dha Dhin Na Dha Tin Na".

A much-needed look at a crucial chapter in the career of trumpeter Don Cherry – his overseas time on the European scene, where Don experimented with new organic music forms, alternatives to mainstream society, and a much larger cultural milieu than jazz! Cherry's organic music period has been captured on a few key recordings, but the larger activity of that moment spans a much wider space – finally given its full due here in a massive book that brings together writings, interviews, photographs, and countless pieces of artwork – most by Moki Cherry, whose creations you might recognize from some of Don's album Covers. The set is edited and introduced by Lawrence Kumpf, but also features work by Don, Moki, and Neneh Cherry – plus Alice Bailey, Keith & Rita Knox, Ben Young, and others – stretched out for almost 500 pages, with full color images throughout the entire book – drawings, paintings, posters, and lots lots more!

Blue Note, Late 60s. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Arguably the best of Cherry's albums for Blue Note – and a real masterpiece of soulful avant playing! The group features Cherry on cornet, Gato Barbieri on tenor (and he's incredible, by the way!), Henry Grimes on bass, and Ed Blackwell on drums. Grimes and Blackwell are more than just timekeepers – and deliver a lot of the melody of the session, yet still never lose their sense of swing. Barbieri's fragile raw tone proves to be a good one to work with Cherry, even if there are a few touches of Ornette in his playing. The album's divided up into 2 long suites – "Complete Communion" and "Elephantasy" – both of which are excellent. A real treat – with no sloppiness, lots of fresh ideas, and a good sense of both freedom and control! LP, Vinyl record album

CTI/BGO (UK), Early 70s. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A trio of classic CTI Records albums from tenorist Stanley Turrentine – with bonus tracks too! First up is Cherry – one of the best CTI albums from the early 70s – and one of Stanley Turrentine's funkiest records as well! The album's got a sharper edge than most other Turrentine albums of the time – a quality that goes beyond Stan's already soulful approach to the tenor, and which brings in some tight changes and more pronounced rhythms that really give the best cuts a great groove! The group's a sextet – with Bob James on electric piano, Milt Jackson on vibes, Cornell Dupree on guitar, Ron Carter on bass, and Billy Cobham on drums – and titles include a monster version of Weldon Irvine's "Sister Sanctified" – a great funk tune that's probably best known as the sample for "My Philosophy" by BDP! Other tracks include "Speedball", "Cherry", and "The Revs". On Don't Mess With Mister T, Stanley Turrentine meets Bob James – on a record that's one of the 70s classics on CTI! Bob James handles the arrangements – with that laidback, mellowfunky approach to jazz that he helped pioneer at the time – lots of modal chords in the rhythms, and these wonderfully soulful solos by the great Stan himself! James plays keyboards on the set – and Harold Mabern adds some piano too – and the lineup also includes the mighty Eric Gale on guitar, and Idris Muhammad on drums. Titles include the great title cut – a remake of Marvin Gaye's "Don't Mess With Mister T", plus "Too Blue", "Two For T", and "I Could Never Repay Your Love". Sugar Man is a classic set from Stanley "Sugar Man" Turrentine – a nickname the reedman had at the time, given the success of his famous CTI Records version of "Sugar"! This set follows in that same great mode – jazzy, but a bit funky too – although couched with this gentle sense of soul that's perfect for that spacious style of soloing that Turrentine perfected over the years – a way of blowing openly, and without too much fuss – but managing to hit all the right notes along the way! There's a great glow to the whole record – an excellent easygoing sense of soul – and titles include an incredible reading of "Vera Cruz", done with Deodato on piano, and at a breakaway speed that's just great, and worth the price of the record alone! Other tracks feature piano by Harold Mabern or organ by Butch Cornell – and titles include "The Stretch", "Just As I Am", and "Pieces Of Dreams". Bonus tracks include "The More I See You", "Don't Mess With Mister T (alt)", "Mississippi City", and "Harlem Dawn". CD

Freaky fuzzy guitars from the great Jerry Cole – working here under the name of The Animated Egg – not a real group, but a one-off studio project – yet one that is filled with plenty of great guitar, and some surprising rock funk grooves! The music is much trippier than Jerry's famous surf work – more fuzz on the amps, and a romping sort of rhythm that often takes these tunes right into Cherrystones funky rock territory, which is always treat for ears like ours – and the music veers between hard 60s instrumentals and modder Now Sound territory – thanks to some burning organ alongside the tight guitar and drums! Titles include "Sock It My Way", "Sippin & Trippin", "Dark", "Down Down & Gone", "Tomorrow", "Sur Listic", "I Said She Said Ah Cid", and "A Love Built On Sand". LP, Vinyl record album

Back in the 90s, the DKV trio were one of the strongest forces in the Chicago improvising scene – a great group that featured Ken Vandermark on reeds, Kent Kessler on bass, and Hamid Drake on drums – working together with a really boundless sense of energy! This set has the group making a great appearance at the Wels Music Festival in 1998 – stepping out in a way that's a bit different than some of their previous recordings. At the festival, the trio played their incredibly haunting version of Don Cherry's "Complete Communion", drawn out into an extended suite, with the addition of the group's "Memory Sketch", in homage to Cherry. That set is paired here with some material captured on the group's home turf in Chicago – featuring 3 long improvised tracks recorded at Fred Anderson's Velvet Lounge. The Chicago material comprises a second disc in this 2CD set, and it includes the titles "Blues For Tomorrow", "Open Door", and "Burning Sky". CD

As with that one, the approach here mixes together electric and acoustic sounds, with an imagined landscape of possibilities – music that sometimes feels as if it's come from ethnographic sources, but other times feels as if it's floated down from the future! Hassell blows trumpet on all tracks, often with a fair bit of electronic processing – alongside lots of percussion from other players, all mixed up by Daniel Lanois in the studio. The sound is almost a more abstract extension of the mixture of jazz and global elements that Don Cherry first explored about a decade before – and titles include "These Times", "Gift Of Fire", "Chor Moire", "Courage", and "Dream Theory". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a small cutout notch, lightly bent corners, unglued top seam, and some price sticker remnants.)

✨✧ RunawaysQueens Of Noise ... LP
Mercury, 1977. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
The second great album by Kim Fowley's pet Runaways – the album with Lita Ford, Joan Jett and the rest of the gals cloaked in fog and straddling polls on the cover – making them look like a cross between Mott The Hoople and the headliners at that seedy club by the airport! Like the debut, the Queens Of Noise album is total ear candy – and this one is actually probably even a little bit more consistent – and might rock a little harder, too. It's not quite as notorious without the illicit wallop of the group's debut single "Cherry Bomb" – but that's probably the only reason it's not as well remembered. They were still underage at this point, too, so the front-to-back innuendo still resonates! Buy this and the debut album, then take your Donna's CDs back to the mall! Tracks include "Queens Of Noise", "Take It Or Leave It", "Midnight Music", "Born To Be Bad", "Neon Angels On The Road To Ruin", "I Love Playing With Fire", "California Paradise", "Hollywood", "Heartbeat", and "Johnny Guitar".

Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassLost Treasures – Rare & Unreleased ... CD
A&M/Herb Alpert Presents, 1960s. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
Genius, pure genius – a wonderful collection of 22 rare numbers by Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass – all recorded during the group's years at A&M Records, and including a number of previously unreleased tunes! The sound here is completely sublime – way more than just the simple themes that you might expect from the TJB at the time, especially since there's a fair bit of numbers from Herb's late 60s years, when he was really opening into a wider range of modes explored by A&M Records on their Bacharach, Brazilian, soundtrack, and singer-songwriter releases. The whole thing's a key treasure in our 60s collection of instrumental pop – one that fills in a space we didn't even know we had! Titles include "Alone Again (Naturally)", "Julius & Me", "Happy Hour", "Promises Promises", "Whistlestar", "Killing Me Softy", "Chris", "Popcorn", "Flowers On The Wall", and "Up Cherry Street". CD

Billy BangLucky Man (3LP set) ... LP
BBE (UK), 2021. New Copy 3LP Gatefold ... $52.99 54.99
One of the most compelling albums in years from Billy Bang – and that's really saying a lot, given how much compelling music he's recorded! The set is put together in conjunction with a fascinating documentary on Bang's life, music, and time spent fighting in Vietnam – an experience that stayed with him for decades, scarred him, and which here has become a way of reaching back into the past, into the culture, as a way to find some sort of personal healing! The result is fantastic – as Bang's amazing work on violin comes in contact with a variety of Vietnamese artists – including Tran Manh Tuan on tenor, Duc Dau of the Phu Dong Family Band, and even the larger Hanoi Symphony Orchestra – all different musical partners who really help Billy expand his sound and resolve some of his decades-old conflicts – presented alongside some spoken passages from the film that are very striking, and a few solo numbers too. Titles include "Mystery Of The Mekong", "Song For Don Cherry", "New Saigon Phunk", "Jungle Lullaby", "Dan Da Traditional Lithophone", and "Moments For The Kiamia". LP, Vinyl record album

Gato BarbieriIn Search Of The Mystery ... LP
ESP, 1967. Very Good+ ... $39.99
One of the first albums ever cut as a leader by reedman Gato Barbieri – and a very sharp-edged session that's quite different than his better-known work in the 70s! Barbieri's tenor here has an incredible tone – as deeply soulful as Pharoah Sanders or late John Coltrane, and blown with a great sense of freedom – really stretching out on the album's long tracks. Gato never lets himself get too unfocused, though – and the album's an illustration of a side of his talents that was perhaps only shown this well on his recordings with Don Cherry. Players include Calo Scott on cello, Sirone on bass, and Bobby Kapp on drums – and the album's got a vibe that easily matches other ESP sets from the time by Charles Tyler or Sonny Simmons. Titles include "In Search Of The Mystery", "Obsession No 2", "Michelle", and "Cinematheque". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black & white label pressing. Cover has some light wear, light splitting on the spine, and a small bit of pen – but is nice overall.)

Ornette ColemanComplete Science Fiction Sessions (including Broken Shadows – plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia, 1972. Used 2 CDs ... $36.99
One of Ornette Coleman's best recordings from the 70s – and like his other album for Columbia, quite a change from the freewheeling sounds he was blowing over at Blue Note! The style here is a bit more high concept, but in a good way – with all the edges that Coleman had developed from the late 50s onward, brought into tighter focus for the Columbia setting – given a bit more complexity, although still with plenty of room for freedom – and played both with a smaller combo, and a slightly larger group. The mix of players is as striking as the sounds on the record – and includes Coleman on alto, trumpet, and violin – plus Dewey Redman on tenor, Don Cherry on pocket trumpet, Bobby Bradford on trumpet, Jim Hall on guitar, Cedar Walton on piano, Charlie Haden on bass, and Billy Higgins and Ed Blackwell on drums. Asha Puthli sings a bit on the larger ensemble tracks – making a rare appearance here before her 70s soul career in Germany – and titles include "What Reason Could I Give", "Street Woman", "The Jungle Is A Skycraper", and "All My Life". 2CD set also features all the material from the Broken Shadows album as well – plus 3 previously unissued bonus tracks. Other titles include "Happy House", "Elizabeth", "Good Girl Blues", "Broken Shadows", "Rubber Gloves", and "Written Word". CD

The title gets it right – as the album's easily the closest thing to free jazz that Ornette Coleman ever recorded – an album-length improvisation played by a "double quartet" that's overflowing with classic players! The style here is a fair bit like John Coltrane's Ascension album for Impulse – and like that one, the session features Ornette and his contemporaries really stretching out – blowing like never heard before on record, and working in a highly unstructured setting! Other players include Eric Dolphy on bass clarinet, Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, and Scott LaFaro on bass – alongside regular group members Don Cherry on pocket trumpet, Charlie Haden on bass, and both Ed Blackwell and Billy Higgins on drums.

An album that certainly lives up to the promise of its title – as it's filled with amazing instrumentation, groundbreaking compositions, and a sound in jazz that few ears could imagine at the time! The groove here is extremely modal – all instruments rolling along on the same rhythmic pulse, with drums, bass, trumpet, and alto sax incredibly intertwined! Ornette's really got an edge on his instrument – cutting even more deeply here than the clipped, punctuated cornet work of Don Cherry – and the rhythm team of Charlie Haden and Billy Higgins are simply amazing – not just keeping up with the energy of Ornette, but also really helping facilitate it as well! Titles include the haunting "Lonely Woman", plus "Peace", "Chronology", and "Focus on Sanity". CD

Herbie HancockJazz To Funk (Blow Up Sessions/Kawaida) ... CD
Aim (Australia), 1966/1969. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99 16.99
A pair of early sessions from Herbie Hancock – both very different than his Blue Note work of the 60s! The set features 11 tracks from material that Herbie recorded for the Warwick label earlier in the decade – material issued with a title makes it seem like the cuts are from Herbie's score to the film Blow Up – although we're guessing that they're not, although they've always been issued without much in the way of session details! That hardly matters, though – as Herbie is great on piano – younger and rawer, more soul jazz than modern – on titles that include "Smoochie", "Far Out", "Afro Boogie", "Rock Your Soul", "Jammin With Herbie", "Herbie's Blues", and "Night Walker". Next is a record that wasn't actually first issued under Herbie's name – a super-hip batch of spiritual jazz tracks by Albert Toodie Heath of the Heath Brothers – working here on a rare session as a leader, with a sound that's right up there with the Heath Brothers' early work for Strata East!! The lineup is incredible – as Heath is joined by players that include Don Cherry, Buster Williams, Mtume, Herbie Hancock, Jimmy Heath, and Ed Blackwell – all coming together for a session that's nearly lost to the history books, but which is one of the strongest spiritual jazz sessions of the late 60s! Herbie plays all acoustic piano throughout, and the tracks are long, leaping, and loping – with stretched-out spiritual solos from Jimmy Heath and Don Cherry – and a proud and righteous sound that's extremely free-spirited without going too far out! Titles include "Baraka", "Maulana", "Dunia", and "Kamili". CD

Amy WinehouseAmy Winehouse Collection (Frank/Back To Black/Lioness/Live In London/Rarities) (5CD set) ... CD
Universal, 2000s. New Copy 5CD ... $45.99 49.99
Way more than just a box set of the key albums from the all-too-short career of Amy Winehouse – as this massive package also features a wealth of rarities and live tracks – some making their CD debut in this limited collection! The set leads off with Frank – the stunning debut from UK soul singer Amy Winehouse – a vocalist with a sound that's instantly captivating, and which will be with us for years! Amy's clearly cut her chops in jazz, but also has a laidback and soulful personality – easily shifting between modes for the right mood of each song, without any of the pretensions that would ruin an album like this. The backings have a proud stepping feel that fits well with tunes like "In My Bed", "What Is It About Men", "F*ck Me Pumps", and "You Sent Me Flying" – really keeping Amy's spirit fresh throughout the whole set! Next is Back to Black – an incredible album from Amy Winehouse – even way better than her fantastic debut! Although a contemporary soul album, this one's steeped in tradition – soul styles that run the gamut from Detroit down to Kingston, and which are carried off here with a rougher, sharper-edged sound than before! The instrumentation on here is really mindblowing – almost at a Motown level, with isolated instruments really crackling out from the fuller backings – all set to rhythms that snap and bounce, and are almost a bit funky at times. Credit is definitely due to producers Mark Ronson and Salaam Remi – but Amy's vocals are really tremendous too – classic, but really personal and fresh! Titles include "Rehab", "Just Friends", "Back To Black", "Love Is A Losing Game", "He Can Only Hold Her", "Some Unholy War", and "Me & Mr Jones". Next is Lioness Hidden Treasures – a (sadly) posthumous release from Amy Winehouse – a voice we loved for a couple good years before knowing how troubled she was in real life and now lament the loss of – and this set, largely put together by producer Salaam Remi turned out surprisingly well! It'd be pretty easy to bow to cynicism, but for our money, there's more than enough strong stuff here. It features production by Remi, plus Mark Ronson on a couple tracks, and it's a mix of styles that ably demonstrate Amy's depth as an interpreter. There's some great, kinda late night jazzy soul numbers, classic level 60s R&B and thoroughly modern hip hop soul – all with strong vocal performances from Amy. Includes "Our Day Will Come", "Between The Cheats", "Tears Dry (Original Version)", "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow (2011)", "Like Smoke" feat Nas (and some eerily timely lyricism, as of this album's release date), "Valerie ('68 Version)", "Half Time", "The Girl From Ipanema", "Half Time", "Body & Soul" with Tony Bennett, "A Song For You" and more. Next is the 2LP set Live In London – the vinyl debut of material from the DVD of the same name – with titles that include "Just Friends", "Cherry", "Back To Black", "Wake Up Alone", "Tears Dry On Their Own", "He Can Only Hold Her/Doo Wop (That Thing)", "Valerie", "Rehab", "Me & Mr Jones", "Monkey Man" and more. Last is the album Remixes – which features the CD debut of 15 tracks – material from Frank and Back To Black – remixed by MJ Cole, Al Usher, Skeewiff, Truth & Soul, Ghostface, Hot Chip, and others.

Million Dollar Disco/BBE (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $9.99 19.99
Classic cuts, made even better by the magic hands of Al Kent – a mixing talent we've trusted for years, and one with an uncanny knack for making the same kind of special sounds you'd hear on a rare club edit from back in the day! These tracks aren't remixed, or bogged down with new musical touches – they're just pulled apart and reconstructed in ways that make the initial grooves even better, and which often extends the tunes to great new lengths – but never in a way that gets too overdone or predictable! Al Kent's got ears that feel like they've never left the 70s, and he really keeps things right throughout – on a list of tracks that includes "I Wanna Love" by Jo Bisso, "Doin Your Own Thing" by Tangerue, "You Never Loved Me" by Ava Cherry, "Givin Back The Feeling" by George McCrae, "Fire Keep On Burning" by King Sporty, "San Salvador" by Grupo Macho, "You Like It We Love It" by Southroad Connection, "Wonder Woman" by JD Hall, and "Keep On Moving" by Phillip & Lloyd.

Decca/Fledgling (UK), 1964. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic combination – the amazing guitar work of the young Davy Graham and the sublime vocals of Shirley Collins – paired together here in a record that's a strong precursor to British acid folk in years to come! Collins is rooted in tradition – and had already dipped deep into the American rural folk experience by the time of this record – but the pairing with Graham really points the way towards the tremendous changes she'd go through in coming years – in part because of some of the jazzy phrasing that Davy can bring to his guitar. That maybe comes through strongest on the album's jazz covers – of "Grooveyard" and "Blue Monk" – mixed nicely with traditional material, in a set list that also includes "Nottamun Town", "Proud Maisrie", "The Cherry Tree Carol", "Pretty Saro", "Rif Mountain", "Jane Jane", "Bad Girl", "Dearest Dear", and "Love Is Pleasin".

Bear Family (Germany), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A massive overview of the best years of Krautrock – that fresh wave of new music that emerged on the West German scene at the end of the 60s, and carried the nation forward strongly all through the 70s! The set definitely begins at the beginning – as early cuts almost echo some of the blues rock that was bubbling up in the UK and US, before quickly moving into some of the modes that are more familiarly associated with Krautrock – including inspirations from jazz and improvised music, avant electronics, and freewheeling instrumentation that had a huge impact on many artists for decades to come! This 2CD set is done in the best Bear Family tradition – with a huge booklet of notes and images – although we should also say that the notes are in German, but still have enough helpful bits that you'll be able to get the gist when needed. 22 tracks in all – and titles include "Redskin" by Jane, "Souls Married To The Wind" by Parzival, "Cappuccino" by Abacus, "A Young Man's Gash (part 2)" by Gash, "La Leyla" by Ramses, "Chub Chub Cherry" by Silberbart, "Ants" by Tomorrow's Gift, "Rock N Roll Preacher" by Atlantis, "Keep On Running" by Cravinkle, "Mesentery" by Ikarus, "Schones Babylon" by AR & Machines, and "Big City" by Thirsty Moon.
