Chris CarterArchival 1973 to 1977 (blue vinyl pressing – with download) ... LP
Mute, Mid 70s. New Copy ... $20.99 22.98
Early and amazing sounds from electronic genius Chris Carter – material recorded in his home studio during the mid 70s – with a style that clearly lays the blueprint for his collaborations to Throbbing Gristle! Yet without any vocals or other noise, you can really hear the Carter component of the music in a wonderful way – different even than his later collaborations with Cosi Fanni Tutti, even when spare – as the whole vibe here is maybe a more condensed version of Krautrock electronics, taken into the space of songs that are just a few minutes long – but which also have a lot more darkness than other electronic work of the time. That sense of darkness is key – as these tracks are subtle, but very different than spacier or more calming music of the type – proof that Carter was really an emotional pioneer when it came to this side of the spectrum. Titles include "Warm Hair", "Nodes", "Head Less", "Jet Age", "Hexfoil", "Black Powder", "Ghost Trains", and "See Sick". LP, Vinyl record album

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

Chris & CoseyHeartbeat ... LP
Rough Trade/Conspiracy International (UK), 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99
The amazing first album from Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti – done after the breakup of Throbbing Gristle, and in a way that really sets the duo apart from the rest of the group! The music is dark, but also very tuneful – analogue electronics used much more clearly than on most TG material – with voices that are processed in ways that work perfectly next to the Casio keyboards and guitars. The whole thing's great – so different than all the others who tried to imitate this mode – and way more than just another cold wave footnote too. Titles include "Put Yourself In Los Angeles", "This Is Me", "Voodoo", "Moorby", "Radio Void", "Just Like You", "Bust Stop", "Heartbeat", and "Manic Melody". LP, Vinyl record album

Chris & CoseySongs Of Love & Lust ... LP
Rough Trade/Conspiracy International (UK), 1984. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99
A completely charming little record from the duo of Chris Carter and Cosi Fanni Tutti – an album that seems to echo some of the more song-based modes of the electro pop scene of the early 80 – but which has a spare darkness that really keeps things interesting! The album proports to contain "backmasking and subliminal messages which may be of a harmful subversive nature" – and while we've never been able to experience them as such, we can definitely say that there's something special going on here – which may well just be the long experience Carter has with electronic music, which already puts him way ahead of the younger cold wave talents. Tracks include the beautiful "Driving Blind" – plus "Talk To Me", "Gardens Of The Pure", "Lament", "Walking Through Heaven", "Chiron", and "Raining Tears Of Blood". LP, Vinyl record album

Chris & CoseyTrance ... LP
Conspiracy International (UK), 1982. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99
After terrifying the underground as part of Throbbing Gristle in the 70s, Chris and Cosey look almost cute on the cover of this classic early album – yet still manage to retain all of the darkness that continues to make the music hold up so well over the years! The elements here are familiar – beats, keyboards, guitars, and processing – of the sort used by so many of their contemporaries, but rarely in ways that move us so much as the duo of Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti – maybe because of all the experience they had going to the farther reaches in TG, which makes the results a lot more powerful when they're in more tuneful territory here. Titles include "Cowboys In Cuba", "Lost", "The Giants Feet", "Impulse", "Re-Education Through Labor", "Secret", "Until", and "The Gates Of Ancient Cities". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ DJ ShadowOutsider ... CD
Island (UK), 2006. Used ... Out Of Stock
A fascinating full length departure from DJ Shadow – an album that's more or less made up of genre suites – rolling from sound library groove, to hood-shaking hyphy hip hop, to topical post-Katrina commentary, to beat-driven live instrument avant funk! The album's flow is more or less held together with the occasional backing of the Heliocentrics – featuring drummer Malcolm Catto – as a tight rhythmic backdrop in a number of spots with heavy drums plus keys, vibes, bass and guitar. But even more tracks are buoyant bombs of deeply pulsing, heavily thumping contemporary hip hop. The album is ultimately kind of a mess, but it's a very ballsy one – featuring some of Shadow's most mainstream hip hop productions ever – which is actually in itself a pretty radical move when you think about it! Titles include "This Time (I'm Gonna Try It My Way)", "3 Freaks" feat Keak Da Sneak & Turf Talk, "Turf Dancing" feat The Federation & Animaniaks, "Keep Em Close" feat Nump, "Seein' Thangs" feat David Banner, "Broken Levee Blues", "Artifact (inst)", "Backstage Girl" feat Phonte Coleman, "Triplicate/Something Happened That Day", "The Tiger" feat Sergio Pizzorno & Christopher Karloff, "Erase You" feat Chris James, "What Have I Done" feat Christina Carter, "Enuff" feat Q-Tip & Lateef The Truth Speaker, "Dats My Part" feat E-40, "3 Freaks (Droop-E rmx)" feat Mistah FAB, Turf Talk & Keak Da Sneak and more.

✨✧ VariousFeelin Right Saturday Night – The Ric & Ron Anthology (2018 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Ric & Ron/Craft, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A great look at the legendary Ric & Ron Records label – a key force in the development of New Orleans soul – home to some of the best early productions from the Crescent City! The roster of talent here is really amazing – a host of artists who'd go onto develop the New Orleans style even more strongly in the 60s, mixed with some lesser-knowns who really sparkle in this setting – sharp, tight, damn soulful singles that are all delivered without any overproduction, and nicely free of all those cliches that would later overwhelm music from the Big Easy. The rhythms alone are worth the price of the record – hard-romping piano, bass, and drums that really set an instrumental fire right from the start – then pave the way for searing lead performances from the singers and instrumental stars. This special set features some never-issued titles – "Good Enough For Me" by Eddie Bo and "Tipitina (demo)" by Professor Longhair – plus "You Done Me Wrong" by Al Johnson, "Double Eye Whammy" by Tommy Ridgley, "I Won't Cry" by Johnny Adams, "Found My Good Thing (demo)" by Barbara Lynn, "Feelin Right Saturday Night" by The Velvetiers, "Dinky Doo" by Eddie Bo, "Will Travel" by Lee Tillman & Bud Stewart's Top Notchers, "Pleadin" by Mercy Baby, "Carnival Time" by Al Johnson, "I May Be Wrong" by Irma Thomas, "Walkin" by Robert Parker, "You Can If You Think You Can" by Martha Carter, "Tootles" by Lenny Capello & The Dots, "Lonesome Guitar" by Edgar Blanchard, "Don't Mess With My Man" by Irma Thomas, "Rocket To The Moon" by Chris Kenner, "Go To The Mardi Gras" by Professor Longhair, and "Every Dog Got His Day" by Eddie Bo.

✨✧ VariousChristmas Rap (colored vinyl) ... LP
Profile, 1987. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Some of finest, funkiest Christmas themed old school hip hop ever – seasonal chestnuts by Run-DMC, Dana Dane, Spyder D, Disco 4, Surf MCs and more! It includes what's got to be the best-remembered holiday rap classic ever in Run-DMC's "Christmas In Hollis" – using that perfect Clarence Carter "Back Door Santa" sample behind slice-of-life yet knowingly funny Run-DMC rhymes in their prime – and Sweet Tee's "Let The Jingle Bells Rock" is another classic – but the lesser remembered by the mainstream jams are great here, including King Sun-D Moet "Christmas In The City", Dana Dane's "Dana Dane Is Coming To Town", Spyder D "Ghetto Santa", Derek B "Chillin With Santa", the Disco 4 "He's Santa Claus", the Showboys "That's What I Want For Christmas" and Surf MCs "A Surf MC New Year".

✨✧ VariousJoyful Jazz – Christmas With Verve Vol 1 – The Vocalists ... CD
Verve, 1950s/1960s/2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A collection of Holiday tracks both old and new – pulled from the catalog of Verve Records, and a fair bit of the larger Universal jazz catalog too! The material here mixes old favorites with a few newer recordings – tracks that show that great resonance between jazz vocal styles and Christmas tunes – a pairing that never seems to get old, and which can make for some especially warm moments during the season. Titles include "The Christmas Song" by Mel Torme, "Christmas Time Is Here" by Patti Austin, "It Must Be Christmas" by Judy Holliday, "Peace On Earth" by Peggy Lee, "There's No Place Like Home For The Holidays" by Betty Carter, "Peace" by Norah Jones, "Zat You Santa Claus" by Louis Armstrong, "Silent Night" by Dinah Washington, "White Christmas" by Ella Fitzgerald, "I'll Be Home For Christmas" by Diane Schuur, "I've Got My Love To Keep Me Warm" by Billie Holiday, and "Winter Wonderland" by Shirley Horn.

✨✧ VariousMerry Luxmas – It's Christmas In Crampsville ... CD
Righteous (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the craziest collections of Christmas music you'll ever hope to own – a fantastic assortment of rare and obscure Holiday singles from the record collection of The Cramps! The music is mostly from the end of the 50s and start of the 60s – a heyday not just for the 45rpm format, but also for mad experimentation in many styles of mainstream music – moments that could sometimes have the wit of a novelty single, or the searing power of a sonic powerhouse punch – all of which you'll get here on a hip assortment of 31 unusual songs of the season! Titles include "Santa Done Got Hip" by The Marquees, "Jingle Bell Hop" by Jackson Trio, "Santa Claus" by Bo Carter, "Did You Spend Christmas Day In Jail" by The Reverend JM Gates, "Eskimo Pie" by George Jones, "Swingin Santa" by Sandy Baron, "Christmas Boogie" by Sugarchile Robinson, "I Want A Hippopotamus For Christmas" by Gayla Peevey, "Cool Yule" by Tony Rodelle Larson, "I Want A Man For Christmas" by Joan Shaw, and "Bring That Cadillac Back" by Harry Crafton.
