BatatinhaToalha Da Saudade ... CD
Continental/Warner (Brazil), 1976. Used ... $19.99
Modern samba recorded with a light and folksy touch – and presented with a nice endorsement by Caetano Veloso! The feel here is in that rootsy 70s samba-revival mode – very respectful, with larger backings that never get in the way of the lead vocals and guitar work. Titles include "Espera", "Ironia", "Indecisao", "A Sorte Do Benedito", and "Baba De Luxo". CD

CeliaCelia ... CD
Continental/Mr Bongo (UK), 1972. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
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".

CeliaCelia (1970) ... CD
Continental/Mr Bongo (UK), 1970. New Copy ... $11.99 12.98
Wickedly cool work from this overlooked Brazilian singer – a record that's got a strong sense of soul in the grooves, and a great sense of imagination in the choice of songs! 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". CD

Edu LoboMestres Da MPB ... CD
Continental (Brazil), 1980. Used ... $18.99
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

Renata LuRenata Lu (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Continental/Mad About Records (Portugal), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $36.99 39.99
A rare set from the early 70s samba soul years in Brazil – one of the few albums ever cut by Renata Lu, a singer who worked more famously on records by other artists – and an album that really does a great job of mixing rootsier, funkier touches with some of the larger arrangements that Brazilian studios were doing so well at the time! There's a great blend here between Renata's voice and the overall sound of the record – very much in the best Blue Brazil spirit of the Emi/Odeon label during the same period – sophisticated, but wonderfully groovy too – and set to backings done by Dom Salvador and Arnoldo Medeiros. Titles include "Sou Frevo", "Sambaloo", "Manias", "Fim De Papo", "Sucesso Tranquilo"- "Faz Tanto Tempo", and "Folhas De Outono". LP, Vinyl record album

Continental/Warner (Brazil), 1963. Used ... $39.99
A lost bossa organ classic – and one that features some vocals by Jorge Ben! The album's a rare gem from early 60s Brazil, and features Ben singing in the same soulful style as on his own early records – dancing lightly over grooves set down by organist Ze Maria, who has a wonderful sound that's a lot like Walter Wanderley! The whole thing's a dream, and features early versions of Ben's own tracks "Mas Que Nada" and "Por Causa De Voce Menina" – plus the tracks "A Vida Do Negro", "Influencia Do Jazz", "Tudo Azul", and "Samba Do Aviao".

O TercoO Terco (1972) (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Continental/Discos Mariposa (Argentina), 1972. New Copy ... $4.99
The second album from O Terco – the guitar-heavy power trio who were one of the hardest things going in Brazil during the early 70s! The album's got a style that's somewhat progressive, but which also still holds onto plenty of late 60s psychedelic elements – qualities both sweet and dark, often compressed into the arrangements with an approach that's a bit like some of the more underground South American rock of the time. Side one of the album features 5 shorter tracks – "Deus", "Voce Al", "Estrada Vazia", "Lagoa Das Lontras", and "Rock Do Elvis" – and the second side features the 19 minute suite"Amanheger Total" – a soaring, building number with lots of changes throughout! CD features 2 bonus tracks – "Tributo Ao Sorriso" and "Adormeceu". CD

Tom ZeEstudando O Samba ... LP
Continental/Mr Bongo (UK), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99 27.98
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".

✨✧ Hareton SalvaniniSP 73 ... CD
Continental/Mr Bongo (UK), 1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Moody instrumental magic from Hareton Salvanini – an artist with an Italian sounding name, and an approach that reminds us of some of the hippest composers of the sound library and film score scene in Italy during the 70s! The album's all instrumental, and is almost a soundtrack for a film that never existed – as Salvanini mixes his own piano lines with these moody strings and dark-tinged instrumentation – all with a vibe that's maybe a bit warmer than David Axelrod or Johnny Harris, but in the same sort of territory as their important albums of the time! Weird reeds color in some moments, offbeat strings some others – and there's a suppressed sense of emotion that lingers with lots of blue currents on the record – really fitting Hareton's look on the cover. Titles include "Salamandras", "Viver", "So, "Primitivo", "Irracional", "Papa Mama", "Yelris", and "Preludio Em Si Bemol Menor". CD

The sound is difficult to describe – but the record has some extremely compelling songwriting, and great vocal work that carries the strength of the tracks, whether or not you understand Portuguese. Titles include "Sangue Latino", "O Vira", "Primavera Nos Dentes", "Amor", "Assim Assado", and "As Andorinhas". Nice cover, too – with the band's heads on a table! LP, Vinyl record album

Continental/Polysom (Brazil), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of those impossible to find records by Tom Ze from the 70s – and well worth the search! The record has Ze working in a slightly more conventional mode – with a mix of styles that ranges from spare percussive tracks, to others that have a smoother production style, but still a fairly mad lyrical approach. There's a bit more electronics in here than on some of the earlier albums, but trust us, like all musical elements, they're used in the service of Ze's mad vision more than they are in any standard way. Titles include "Amor De Estrada", "Carta", "Morena", "Menina Jesus", "Na Parada De Sucesso", and "Pecado, Rifa E Revista". LP, Vinyl record album

Herb AlpertBeyond ... LP
A&M, 1980. Sealed ... $9.99
An incredible later record from Herb Alpert – working in a soulful funky fusion mode that really is well beyond the style that made him famous in the 60s! We love the easy breezy 60s sound of Herb & The Tijuana Brass too, but he really stepped up his game in exciting ways on records like Rise, and he takes some even further, previously unexplored creative steps on Beyond, this aptly titled set! Plenty of smoothed out funky fusion grooves, especially on the first half of the record, but by the midway point he's also dabbling in Spanish guitar inflected melodies, bringing in some spacey electronics and sequencing, and other daring twists – but never compromises on the consistently groovy feel overall. Includes "Kamali", "The Continental", "Reach For The Stars", "Red Hot", "Beyond", "Keep It Goin'", "The Factory" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1960. New Copy ... $16.99 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".

A great introduction to the work of Telex – the very groovy Euro pop group started by keyboardist Marc Moulin after his early work in Placebo! The sound here is very different than that group – very catchy, very poppy, and upbeat with a ear towards helping the continental scene live past the years of disco – so much so that the electronic vibe of the set is also arguably a very strong influence on UK and Japanese electronic pop in years to come! Telex were always smarter than most, and had a great sense of humor and a way of sneaking politics into catchy little songs – as you'll hear on titles that include "Beautiful Li(f)e", "The Number One Song In Heaven", "The Beat Goes On/Off", "Moskow Diskow", "Eurovision", "Exercise Is Good For You", and "L'Amour Toujours".

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

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".

✨✧ Foreign ExchangeLeave It All Behind ... LP
HBD, 2008. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The second album from Foreign Exchange – the formerly bi-continental project of North Carolina MC and soul singer Phonte of Little Brother, and transplanted Dutch producer Nicolay – who take an even deeper turn into spacey soul on Leave It All Behind! Given that Phonte is singing rather than rapping, you'd be tempted to say that Foreign Exchange has left hip hop behind, but hip hop is in the heart and soul – and the group was born of the idea of hip hop as an evolving art form – so rhymes or not, it's still hip hop in a way. The spacey, jazzy melodic groove here finds producer Nicolay in peak form – a nice balance between thumping bass, beats and mellow atmospherics, and the mood is impeccable. We're pretty much stunned at how well Phonte is developing as a vocalist, with laidback lead and overdubbed backing vocals that go back the heart & soul comment above. A left turn for a duo that was adventurous to begin, with an excellent move to the next level! Titles include "Daykeeper", "Take Off The Blues", "All Or Nothing/Coming Home For You", "I Wanna Know", "House Of Cards", "Sweeter Than You", "Valediction", "If She Breaks Your Heart", "If This Is Love", "Something To Behold" and "Leave It All Behind". LP includes 2 bonus tracks; "If This Is Love" (Nicky Buckingham's Fleetwood mix) & "Sweeter Than You" (Muhsinah's mix). LP, Vinyl record album

An unusual little set – one that features some of the soul-styled modes of the other collections on this label, but which also quickly moves into more exotic territory too – a blend that ends up showing some of the more criss-crossed styles in the indie records 7" single underground at the time!

VariousKill Yourself Dancing – The Story Of Sunset Records Inc Chicago 1985 to 1989 ... CD
Still Music, Late 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99 16.99
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. 2CD set features a whopping 21 tracks in all!

A great collection of rare 45s from the powerhouse TK Records label and all it's many smaller imprints – Dade, Glades, Alston, and many others – brought here together with a focus on a really special side of the label!

✨✧ VariousCome Back Bird – The Abilene Texas Teen Scene 1964 to 1967 ... CD
Cicadelic, Mid 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A groovy compilation of 60s teen rockers from the Abilene, TX scene – Brit Invasion styled numbers, but with the rawer edge that's so much more pleasing to the ears than the sweetened up, too polished bigger budget sounds of the style and era – with youthful energy that can't be faked! It's got both simmering and stomping numbers by The Chevelle V, The Living End, The Continentals and The Coachmen. A welcome revival on Cicadelic! Titles include "Come Back Bird", "Not This Time", "Eenie Meanie Minie Moe" and more by Chevelle V, "Roadrunner", "Friends", "All Alone" and more by The Living End, "I'm Gone" by The Continentals, "Say You Love Me" and "Hush Broken Heart" by The Coachmen and more. 24 tracks in all.

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!

✨✧ Toshinori KondoBlow The Earth – India ... LP
Subcontinental/Jet Set (Japan), 2021. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A sweet mix of trumpet and electronics – all served up by the legendary Toshinori Kondo, a Japanese player who's been breaking boundaries in jazz for many years! Kondo handles all instruments on the record himself – a blend of acoustic trumpet, electric elements, and moody rhythms – all put together at his Kondo Soundbody Laboratory – which must be one hell of a place to work! The vibe here is like Jon Hassell at times, but funkier – maybe a bit like Bill Laswell remixing electric Miles Davis – although there's a more unique, unified vision going on with this project too. Titles include "Cross Fading", "Blow The Earth (India)", "Splinters", "Free Incarnation", "Introspection", "Decadent Drive", and "Tunnel Vision". LP, Vinyl record album
