✨✧ Continental 4Dream World ... CD
Jay Walking/Essential, 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Amazing! This album is one of the great lost classics of East Coast harmony soul of the 70s – and it always leaves us breathless! Continental 4 may not have been as big as some of their contemporaries, but the cut "(You're Living In) A Dream World" is one of the most sublime soul tracks ever recorded – with stunning harmonies, fragile production, and some wonderful Philly ballad instrumental touches. The rest of the album is just as good – with slowly plucked electric sitar, soaring harmonies, and an amazing batch of orchestrations that are just out of this world! Titles include "Escape From Planet Earth", "Running Away", "I Don't Have You", and "How Can I Pretend". Dream work from Philly Maestros like Bobby Martin and Norman Harris! CD

Olivia HimeEstrela Da Vida Inteira Manuel Bandeira ... CD
Continental (Brazil), 1986. Used ... $6.99
Olivia Hime sings vocals on a number of tracks that were written with music by Manuel Bandeira, in collaboration with other Brazilian artists like Toninho Horta, Ivan Lins, Wagner Tiso, and others. The highlight of the album is a great reading of Joyce's "Berimbau", done with all the tight jazzy changes of the original, and with some great vocal scatting by Olivia. Other titles include "Belo Belo", "Tema E Voltas", "O Impossivel Carinho", and "Desencanto". CD

Edu LoboMestres Da MPB ... CD
Continental (Brazil), 1980. Used ... $2.99 4.99
A collection of Edu Lobo's work for Warner Brothers – featuring titles from the Limite Das Aquas session, recorded around 1980. The set's a great one if you like Lobo's work – as it takes all of the penchant for complicated jazzy and baroque scoring of earlier years, and filters it through a Egberto Gismonti-like approach to songwriting, one that takes Lobo's rich talents into a whole new dimension! Jazzy grooves mix with thoughtful vocal numbers – and the whole thing's another great set from one of our favorite Brazilian artists ever! Titles include "Negro, Negro", "Gingado Dobrado", "Limite Das Aquas", "Cinco Criancas", "Segue O Coracoa", and "Repente". CD

✨✧ Tom ZeEstudando O Samba (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Continental/Polysom (Brazil), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $36.99 39.99
A record with "samba" in the title, but a set that hardly sounds like samba at all – given that the record is one of the groundbreaking 70s albums from the legendary Tom Ze! Ze first rose to fame as an experimentalist in the Tropicalia scene – but here, he's years past that movement, yet still one of its most creative proponents – working in a mode that takes older Brazilian rhythms and infuses them with all the new sounds, styles, and sense of poetry that Tom was bringing to his music – often quite playful, but at a level that's quite moving as well. The whole thing's got the subtle "beyond language" power of some of the best by Caetano Veloso – even though Tom Ze is completely his own man throughout. The set features arrangements from Jose Briamonte, production from Heraldo Do Monte, and titles that include a rootsy take on "A Felicidade", plus the nutty instrumental "Tom", and the original tracks "So", "Ma", "Vai", "Ui", "Indice", "Hein", and "Mae".

Tom ZeTodos Os Olhos (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Continental/Polysom (Brazil), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $36.99 39.99
One of the most legendary albums from groundbreaking Brazilian music pioneer Tom Ze – and a record that introduces itself with an equally legendary cover image! (Hint: that's not an eyeball on the front.) Ze had already been recording a bit by the time of this record – but this set is easily his most experimental album ever – a record that even makes the work of the late 60s Tropicalia generation sound a bit more catchy and tuneful – as Tom's drawing here from all sorts of strands of avant poetry and instrumentation. The vibe is almost like some of the most experimental Saravah Records albums of the period – unusual songwriting served up in an approach that mixes hard percussion, spare production, quirky guitar, and some of the strangest vocals ever recorded in Brazil. Titles include Complexo De Epico", "A Noite Do Meu Bem", "Dodo E Zeze", "Brigitte Bardot", and "O Riso E A Faca". LP, Vinyl record album

Zeca Do TromboneRota-Mar ... CD
Continental/Altercat (Germany), 1983. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
A beautiful little record from the Brazilian scene – served up by a trombonist who's got a great ability to mix Brazilian rhythms, jazzy grooves, and American soul! The approach is one that you might recognize from contemporary trombonist Raul DeSouza, who moved to the US in the 70s, and cut some great records for Capitol – but Zeca's working here back in Brazil, with a vibe that's much closer to the core – and adding in all these raspy soul vocals that sound completely sublime next to the upbeat instrumentation on the record! The set's heavy on keyboards, and has a nicely jazzy vibe – one that you may recognize from the title track's showing up in some great Ed Motta collections over the years. In fact, there's a quality here that's not far from Ed's more recent AOR tribute recordings – as you'll hear on titles that include "Boa Nova", "Papo Coracao", "Rota-Mar", "Exilio De Coracao", "Em Busca De Mim", and "Gavea Um Beijo De Cinema". Features two bonus tracks – "Ave Anne" and "Tema Do Brisa". CD

✨✧ Conjunto Som 4Conjunto Som 4 ... LP
Continental (Brazil), 1964. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Fantastic work from a young Hermeto Pascoal! The group was his first, recording here in the mid 60s, a few years before he formed the Quarteto Novo with Airto. The overall style is bossa jazz, but the group adds a lot of odd twists and turns, and plenty of dark edges. Hermeto plays flute and piano, and the rest of the group includes bass, drums, and trumpet. A beautifully modernist batch of bossa – with a sound that's a delight, and mellow grooves that will have you coming back again and again. Titles include "Nana", "Louco De Saudade", "Samba Novo", "Minha Namorada", "Deixa", and "Deus Brasileiro". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Elis ReginaDose Dupla – Viva A Brotolandia/Poema De Amor ... CD
Warner/Continental (Brazil), 1961/1962. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Some of the earliest work ever recorded by Elis Regina – issued here on a set that brings together her first two albums in one package! The sound here is quite different than the Elis Regina sound of the 70s – a lot brighter and more youthful, without as many of the somber overtones – yet still with an undeniable charm and a sense of joy that's really amazing! Even at this young age, Elis is a tremendous interpreter of tunes – and the titles mix together bossa and pop arrangements, hitting a style that's far lighter than some of the mainstream Brazilian divas of the period. Backings are by the orchestras of Severino Filho, Renato De Oliveira, Severino Araujo, and Guerra Peixe – and the CD features 24 titles that include "Tu Seras", "Da Sorte", "Dor De Cotovelo", "Amor Amor", "Poema", "Pororo-Popo", "Confissao", "Podes Voltar", "Vou Comprar Um Coracao", and "Las Secretarias".

Continental/Mr Bongo (UK), 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A beautifully groovy album from Celia Reis – maybe the hippest set ever from this Brazilian singer who was equally at home in samba and bossa modes! Production and arrangements are by Arthur Verocai – which will give you an idea of the creativity that went into the record – as Verocai creates all these ambitious grooves that are very much in the best territory of some of the funky Marcos Valle work at the start of the 70s – basslines dipping under strings, all topped with Celia's wonderful vocals – which have a power here that we've never heard on other records – almost a Gal Costa sort of touch! Tracks include tunes by Valle, Verocai, and others – and titles include "Em Familia", "Mia", "Vida De Artista", "Dominus Tecum", "Ay Adelita", "Toda Quarta Feira Depois Do Amor", "A Hora E Essa", "E Preciso Dizer ADeus", and "Badalacao".

Celia sings early work by Joyce, Lo Borges, Nelson Angelo, and others – with these shifting arrangements from the likes of Arthur Verocai, Rogerio Duprant, and Jose Briamonte – all in a mish-mash of modes that sometimes echoes the funky styles on EMI/Odeon of the period, sometimes even hits at Tropicalia touches – especially when guitarist Elody is given full run in the music to do his thing! Titles include "Abrace Paul McCartney", "Fotograma", "Adeus Batucada", "To Be", "David", "Durango Kid", "Zozoio Como E Que E", and "Lennon McCartney". LP, Vinyl record album

Nat King ColeNat King Cole & The Quincy Jones Big Band – Live In Paris 19 Avril 1960 ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1960. New Copy ... $14.99 18.98
A dream of a collaboration – the great Nat King Cole in his prime, getting some mighty hip backings from the equally great Quincy Jones – who gives Nat a jazzy push that he wasn't always getting on his Capitol Records sessions of the time! The performance was recorded live in Paris on the same 1960 tour that has given us a few other rare Cole/Jones collaborations – but this one may well be the best of the bunch, as the fidelity is great – with an equal balance on Nat's wonderful vocal phrasing, and all the strongly soulful elements that Quincy brings to the band. Titles include "Tickle Toe", "Lester Leaps In", "Dance Ballerina Dance", "The Continental", "Darling Je Vous Aime Beaucoup", "Route 66", "It's Only A Paper Moon", "Joe Turner's Blues", "Welcome To The Club", "Blues In The Night", and "Thou Swell".

Blossom DearieAdorable Blossom Dearie (Blossom Dearie – plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Verve/El (UK), Mid 50s. Used ... $9.99
Adorable is right – because the music here is all pretty darn charming – pulled from Blossom Dearie's first full album on Verve, and mixed with bonus cuts from her Paris years! The first 14 tracks on the set are from the self-titled Blossom Dearie album – quite possibly Blossom's best album for Verve, recorded in the mid 50s right after her return from work on the Paris scene! The style here is sprightly and whimsical, yet also fragile and human – a blend that few other singers can pull off as well as Dearie – a trademark sound right from the get-go, and this album's probably the best place to start with Blossom's solo career! Backing is by a small combo that features Ray Brown on bass, Herb Ellis on guitar, and Jo Jones on drums – and Blossom herself plays piano. Titles include "Deed I Do", "You For Me", "Tout Doucement", "Everything I've Got", "Wait Till You See Her", and "A Fine Spring Morning". Remaining 14 tracks on the CD feature 12 that showcase Blossom's skills as a pianist, not singer – including "Old Devil Moon", "Flamingo", "The Continental", "The Boy Next Door", and "April In Paris" – plus 2 more with her vocal group The Blue Stars, "Jumpin At The Woodside" and "Move".

The session appears to be a mix of live and studio tracks, with a group that features some of Babs' hip friends – like Johnny Griffin, Charlie Rouse, Roy Haynes, and Horace Parlan. Babs is in fine form on the album (is he ever not?) – and the record includes some of his best moody originals, like "Lullaby Of The Doomed" and "Lonely One" – plus more uptempo tracks like "Cool Cooking", "Speedy Gonzales", "Babs Mood For Love" and a hip rendition of "Le Continental".

Beautiful bossa from late 60s France – a really lovely session that mixes the vocals of Tita with jazzy backings from Trio Camara – who we know from their own legendary album on the Saravah label! The sound here is a bit different than bossa from Brazil – somewhat darker at points, carried off in that cool continental mode that would sometimes show up when sounds from Rio were filtered through 60s Paris – kind of an extra level of hipness that really makes for some special music here. There's a bit of additional strings next to the trio's backing, which underscores some elements of sadness and also makes for a bit of a soundtrack feel at points – and other instrumentation includes acoustic guitar and some occasional flute. Titles include "Anjo", "Trapezista", "Zefa", "Um Motivo De Ser", "Beatriz", "Nao Faz Mal", "Quebra Mar", and "Vejo A Tarde Cair". CD

Tom ZeRaridades ... CD
Warner (Brazil), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $26.99
A fantastic collection of rare work from the young Tom Ze – obscure tracks from 7" singles, compilations, and festival performances too – all brought together as a counterpart to his full length albums on the Continental and RGE labels! As singles, a few of these tracks are maybe a bit straighter than the more experimental style of Tom's classic albums – but they've still got all these weird little twists and turns, especially as the 70s move into the mix a bit more – showing this amazing ability that Ze has to explode the format of a conventional pop presentation, all while moving a modernist agenda forward a few steps more. Titles include "Bola Pra Frente", "Silencio De Nos Dois", "Senhor Cidadao", "A Baba", "Angusta Angelica E Consolacao", "Contos De Fraldas", "Doi", "A Dama De Vermalho", "Voce Gosta", and a version of the Caetano Veloso song "Irene".

VariousNothing But A House Party – The Birth Of The Philly Sound 1967 to 1971 ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $9.99 18.99
Some folks might associate Philadelphia soul with the famous Gamble & Huff productions of the 70s disco years – but the city was already overflowing with great music in the years before Philadelphia International – as you'll hear in this totally groovy set! Philly was making as much great soul music in the 60s as Detroit, Chicago, and New York – thanks to an earlier musical framework that was set up by the city's big pop hits of the late 50s – which provided plenty of labels, studios, and other facilities for Philly's ever-growing array of soul talents, too – so much so that by the end of the 60s, the city was turning into a destination for singers outside of town – almost as much of a musical magnet as studios in Memphis or Muscle Shoals! This set does a great job of bringing together both aspects of that scene – wonderful homegrown talent, mixed with outsiders to really took off in the new Philly sound of the 60s – a joyous, positive, upbeat approach that worked wonderfully well for a variety of artists. Titles include "Your Fool Still Loves You" by Oscar Weathers, "It's All Over But The Shouting" by George Tindley, "You've Been Untrue" by The Delfonics, "Ain't Nothing But A House Party" by The Show Stoppers, "Peace To You Brother" by Lou Johnson, "Christine" by Executive Suite, "Help Me" by Honey & The Bees, "You Got What I Need" by Freddie Scott, "Rainmaker" by The Moods, "Keep On Striving" by Moses Smith, "That's The Price You Have To Pay" by Brenda & The Tabulations, "What You Gave Up" by The Continental 4, "Every Day Is A Holiday" by The Intruders, "Standing In The Darkness" by The Ethics, and "Girl You're Too Young" by Len Barry.

A great entry in one of our favorite series for rare soul tracks these days – a really special sort of collection that brings together tracks with a vibe that's very much all its own! The set definitely serves up the "real side" that it promises in the title – tunes that aren't showy or full of fuss – and instead, these easygoing soul tracks that hit their mark, right from the start – then go long with tremendous staying power, and a sense of warmth that has us returning to the set again and again for repeated listenings! The choice of cuts is sublime – a few familiar numbers mixed with overlooked tracks from artists we know, but haven't heard from in this way before – served up on 20 tracks that include "Never Set Me Free" by Continental Showstoppers, "I'm Coming Home" by Gerald Taylor, "I Can Remember" by The Whispers, "I'd Believe Him" by Deniece Chandler, "What Does It Take" by The Electrifying Cashmeres, "If You Decide" by Bull & The Matadors, "Try Something New" by Eddie Billups, "When" by Joe Simon, "Lover Come Back" by Jackey Beavers, "Nobody But You" by Willie Hightower, "I Hate Hate" by Razzy Bailey, "Why Don't You Write" by Lee Bates, "Grooving With My Thing" by The DeVons, and "Smooth Sailing" by Three Shades Of Soul.

✨✧ VariousNothing But A House Party – The Birth Of The Philly Sound 1967 to 1971 ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Some folks might associate Philadelphia soul with the famous Gamble & Huff productions of the 70s disco years – but the city was already overflowing with great music in the years before Philadelphia International – as you'll hear in this totally groovy set! Philly was making as much great soul music in the 60s as Detroit, Chicago, and New York – thanks to an earlier musical framework that was set up by the city's big pop hits of the late 50s – which provided plenty of labels, studios, and other facilities for Philly's ever-growing array of soul talents, too – so much so that by the end of the 60s, the city was turning into a destination for singers outside of town – almost as much of a musical magnet as studios in Memphis or Muscle Shoals! This set does a great job of bringing together both aspects of that scene – wonderful homegrown talent, mixed with outsiders to really took off in the new Philly sound of the 60s – a joyous, positive, upbeat approach that worked wonderfully well for a variety of artists. Titles include "Your Fool Still Loves You" by Oscar Weathers, "It's All Over But The Shouting" by George Tindley, "You've Been Untrue" by The Delfonics, "Ain't Nothing But A House Party" by The Show Stoppers, "Peace To You Brother" by Lou Johnson, "Christine" by Executive Suite, "Help Me" by Honey & The Bees, "You Got What I Need" by Freddie Scott, "Rainmaker" by The Moods, "Keep On Striving" by Moses Smith, "That's The Price You Have To Pay" by Brenda & The Tabulations, "What You Gave Up" by The Continental 4, "Every Day Is A Holiday" by The Intruders, "Standing In The Darkness" by The Ethics, and "Girl You're Too Young" by Len Barry.

✨✧ VariousSecret Museum Of Mankind Vol 1 – Ethnic Music Classics 1925 to 1948 ... CD
Yazoo, Late 20s/1930s/1940s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A really far reaching compilation of ethnographic recordings from as way far back as 1925 up to the late 40s – Volume 1 in the Secret Museum Of Mankind series – which pulls together material from Nigeria, Sardinia, Russia, Cuba, Vietnam, Jamaica, Morocco, South Africa, Japan, Sweden and other points! It's wonderful stuff all around, the kind you might fear dipping into given the incessant jumps both stylistic and continental, but given the bygone eras, it works very well. 23 tracks on 2LPs: "Jubilee Anthem" by Eleja Choir, "Fiorassio" by Effisio Melis, "Jat Song" by Bhoora Singh And Party, "Upa Upa" by Les Tamaru, "Ma Thama Zinek" by Raoul Journo, "Angihambe" by Zwabesho Sibisi, "Byggnan" by Eric Sahlstrom, "Hill And Gully Ride" by Lord Composer and more.

Joe PassIntercontinental ... CD
MPS (Germany), 1970. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
One of the grooviest records we've ever heard from guitarist Joe Pass – a sweet European session for MPS, and one with a very different feel than some of his US recordings! The setting's a trio, with a feel that's more open than some of Joe's pop-jazz sets from the 60s – and the rhythms are warmly fluid, in ways that allow Pass to play some great open-handed solos that spin out wonderfully – hanging softly in air, almost with Jim Hall-like qualities, although a bit more inside overall. The rest of the group features Eberhard Weber on bass and Kenny Clare on drums – and titles include a great version of "Ode To Billy Joe", plus "Chloe", "I Love You", "Joe's Blues", "Watch What Happens", and "El Gento".

Savath & SavalasApropa't ... CD
Warp, 2004. Used ... $1.99
Scott Heron of Prefuse 73 fame decided to go explore his roots in Spain and met Eva Puyuelo Muns, which resulted in this transcontinental genre bending collaboration. On Apropa't, you can hear traces of Scott's penchant for analog synth manipulation wizardry, but at it's true core is glorious minimal folk and Spanish psych rock. The whole thing was done with a cast of Chicago musicians, then manipulated in a studio. Every word is Spanish and Scott sings in tandem with Eva on most of the tracks. With all the Prefuse hip hop fame, some of you may shun this as being a doomed experiment, but it sounds very mature and they pull it all together with the confidence of seasoned songwriters. This is a beautiful album, full of floating melodies, light electronic touches, haunting vocal harmonies, delicate acoustic guitars, and a unique sound all their own. Tracks include "Te Quiero Pero Por Otro Lado", "Colores Sin Nombre", "Sol De Media Tarde", "Um Girassol Da Cor De Seu Cabelo", "DeJame", "Victima Belleza", "Radio Llocs Espacials", and "Ultimo Tran".

VariousEssential Asian Flavas – Hits, Beats, & New Grooves ... CD
Outcaste (UK), 2003. Used ... $7.99
As the title says "hits, beats, & new grooves" – a great assortment of tunes from the Asian underground, showing the rich cross-cultural grooves coming out of England in the post-colonial era! Many of these tracks have a subcontinental style at their base – building out of older melodic and rhythmic modes, but updating the sounds for a modern dancefloor, and showing their transformation in a European cultural environment. The set's a great introduction to the genre – with 14 tracks that include "Aaja Ni Aaja" by Kam Dhillon, "Yaar Dha" by DJ H & Punjabi Outlawz, "Mundian To Bach Ke (radio)" by Panjabi MC, "Neelaa" by Trickbaby, "In The Garden" by Bollywood Breaks, "Miracle" by Craig Armstrong with Swati Natekar, "So Lonely (Afterlife rmx)" by Jakatta, and "Hasdi Hasdi (Hit Squad mix)" by Punjabi Hit Squad.

✨✧ VariousPeople Get Up – Original House Party Funk & Get Down Jazz ... CD
Harmless (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An excellent collection of funky tunes! The compilation is a no-nonsense collection of hard jammers by some of the heavyweights of the funky 60s scene, packaged wonderfully, with a non-stop groove that well earns the "party" tag in the title! There's a surprising amount of great tracks here that haven't been reissued on CD before, plus a few favorites we're very happy to have on board – and the set's a hard grooving one that will replace some of your worn-out tapes of funky 45s! Titles include "Four Corners (part 1)" by Lee Dorsey, "Make Your Move" by Bill Doggett, "I'm Mr Big Stuff" by Jimmy Hicks, "Chitlins & Chuchifritos" by Joe Thomas, "I Got It Made In The Shade" by James Duncan, "Soul Brother, Soul Sister" by The Capitols, "Fat Gal" by Mickey Murray, "Right On Brother" by The P & J Review Band, "Do What You Wanna Do" by Frank Howard & The Continentals, and "Barkin Up The Wrong Tree" by James Young & The House Wreckers.

✨✧ VariousKill Yourself Dancing – The Story Of Sunset Records Inc Chicago 1985 to 1989 ... LP
Still Music, Late 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A killer look at one of the most compelling labels on the Chicago house scene of the 80s – a tiny imprint, but one that cut some mighty important music – especially sounds that would have great resonance in the global acid explosion at the end of the decade! The work here has edges that are often a bit sharper than those of more familiar house at Trax Records – and a rhythmic intensity that's very focused, very stripped-down, and very much distilled to the core essence of Chicago house – that harder punch that's informed by a lot of European work at the start of the 80s, but turned towards the decimated disco scene in the US – to rise up a whole new generation with a great burst of energy! The package is maybe the best we've seen so far from Still Music – and features these very detailed notes that tell the fascinating story of the label's rise and short history – really getting at the midwestern melting pot that made house music so great. Titles include "Kill Yourself Dancing" by Razz, "Lover Man" by Ben Mays, "It Could Be Acid" by White Knight, "Face The Music (dub mix)" by Boom Boom & Master Plan, "Persia" by Modern Mechanical Music, "Electric Baile (commercial mix)" by Master Plan, "I Want You (transcontinental mix)" by Hex Complexx, and "Rock The Nation (Kenny Jason rmx)" by Matt Warren.
