Lee Hazlewood & Ann-MargaretCowboy & The Lady ... LP
LHI, 1968. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $44.99
A really interesting album from the great Lee Hazlewood – at one level, a set that's maybe the closest Lee ever came to recording a country album – and at another, a great reworking of the modes he first explored with Nancy Sinatra! It's 1968, and Lee's brought his outlaw cowboy image full-circle – into a late 60s western-revival mode, cast in the same style that was showing up in films at the time – a bit schmaltz, a bit camp, but still with an earnest take on the genre that remains compelling in the face of all the silliness you might expect! And even here, working with Ann Margaret, who really could ruin the record, Hazelwood stands firm – singing beautifully on covers like "No Regrets", "Dark End Of The Street", "Break My Mind", "Victims Of The Night", and "Greyhound Bus Depot", all excellent examples of the hipper side of 60s country writing. Ann's maybe more understated than on some of her own records – and the Nashville production of the record is handled with understated qualities that never fall into cliche or copycat modes!

✨✧ Brides Of FunkensteinComplete Atlantic Records – Funk Or Walk/Never Buy Texas From A Cowboy (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Atlantic/Wounded Bird, Late 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A prime pair of late 70s classics on Atlantic Records from Brides Of Funkenstein – a funky female group from the P-Funk empire – back-to-back with bonus tracks! The Brides are one of George Clinton's few girl-based projects of the 70s, and a group who are markedly more funk-based than Parlet! Vocals are by the duo of Lyn Mabry and Dawn Silva – but the main sound of the set comes from the tightly crafted rhythms served up by a cast of well-known P-Funk regulars – all hitting a spaciously snapping vibe that reminds us a lot of the best energy of late 70s Parliament albums on Casablanca! The tracks on Funk Or Walk, which is on Disc 1 here, are longish, but nicely focused – with less of the disco that you might expect, and more of a slow-stepping groove overall! Titles include "Disco To Go", "War Ship To Touchante", "Just Like You", "When You're Gone", "Amorous", "Nappy", and "Birdie". 2 bonus tracks: single mixes of "Amorous" and "War Ship Touchante". Never Buy Texas From A Cowboy is tremendously soulful session – with plenty of funky Clinton touches in the mix – including rumbling basslines, raspy guitars, and a tightly focused groove that has the singers working equally with the larger group of musicians on the record. Production is by Bootsy Collins and Clinton, with horn arrangements by Fred Wesley – which makes for some great Horny Horns funk touches on most tracks! The title cut – "Never Buy Texas From A Cowboy" – runs on as a long P-Funk groove for about 15 minutes, but other tracks are shorter, and titles include "I'm Holding You Responsible", "Smoke Signals", "Party Up In Here", and "Didn't Mean To Fall In Love". The 2 Part single version of the title track is here as a bonus track. CD

Sony, 1994. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A killer of an album from Jamiroquai – the first time we really sat up and took notice, and said "hey, these guys are onto something good!" The record's pretty darn great all the way through – a warm batch of tunes that starts with a classic 70s mode that's part Stevie Wonder, part Steely Dan – and which runs through some of the more modern London percussion/production techniques to freshen things up! Titles include "Mr Moon", "Kids", "Manifest Destiny", "Light Years", "Stillness In Time", "Morning Glory", and "Space Cowboy". CD

Ronnie AldrichDestination Love ... LP
Phase 4/London, Late 60s. Very Good Gatefold ... $2.99
One of the grooviest albums ever from Brit Easy pianist Ronnie Aldrich – filled with groovy late 60s tunes, and handled with some slightly funky and mod-styled backings that make the album groove a lot more than most of Ronnie's other work! The set's played by Ronnie and his "two pianos" (wink, wink), along with the London Festival Orchestra – and has a rich, full sound that comes out to best effect on the album's uptempo numbers. Titles include "Theme From In The Dark", "Good Morning Starshine", "My Cherie Amour", "Aquarius", "Classical Gas", "Midnight Cowboy", "Quentin's Theme", and "The Windmills Of Your Mind".

Free DesignSing For Very Important People (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Light In The Attic, 1970. New Copy ... $6.99 14.99
Sunny wonderfulness from one of the grooviest vocal groups of all time! This is Free Design's legendary album for children – referred to in the title as "very important people" – and it's a strangely hip set of tracks designed to get the kids to open up in a groovy late 60s kind of way. Given that the Free Design always sounded like a bunch of hippy kids, the setting is perfect for them – and they dreamily make their way through a great set of nearly all original tracks that sparkle with an innocent charm that's slyly deeper than you'd guess from the kid-orientation of the set! Original titles include "Love You", "Kites Are Fun", "Daniel Dolphin", "Ronda 'Go Round", "Bubbles", "Little Cowboy", and "Scarlet Tree". CD features 2 bonus tracks – both outtakes from "For The Love Of Your Lips", a Chapstick commercial! CD

Genetic ControlImpressions ... LP
Return To Analog (Canada), 1984. New Copy ... $9.99
Rare Montreal punk from Genetic Control – tracks from the group's hard-to-find 7" EP, matched here with a wealth of unreleased songs too! The songs are completely hardcore, and completely hard-driving – played at a pace and with intensity that matches the leading lights of the LA punk scene in its glory days – completely on fire, and maybe completely out of place in the Montreal scene that was the group's home turf in the early 80s! Songs are short, and pack a mighty solid punch – on titles that include "Suburban Life", "Dirty Rockers", "Love Rat", "Brave New World", "1984", "First Impressions", and "Urban Cowboy".

✨✧ Donal LeaceDonal Leace ... LP
Atlantic, 1972. Very Good ... $3.99
Donal Leace was one of a few hip soul acts that Roberta Flack brought to Atlantic during her strongest period with the label – and he's a soulful folk singer whose work reminds us of certain folksy moments on Flack's first few albums. There's less of a Terry Callier sound than a Tim Hardin one – and the backing is filled with jazzy inflections laid down by players like Keith Jarrett, David Spinozza, Ray Lucas, Bernard Purdie, and Ron Carter. Flack produced – and again, you can definitely hear her love of folk music on the LP. Titles include "Andrea", "Midnight Cowboy", "Shimaree", "Sad Lisa", "What Does It Take", and "Today Won't Come Again". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ramsey LewisHot Dawgit – The Columbia Years Anthology ... CD
Soulmusic.com (UK), 1970s/1980s. Used 2 CDs ... Just Sold Out!
Fantastic sounds from Ramsey Lewis – killer work from a time when the legendary pianist was electrifying his sound – and transforming the worlds of jazz, funk, and soul in the process! By the time of these sides, Ramsey already had more than a decade of incredible Chess Records material under his belt – soul jazz piano numbers that really rocked the 60s – but here, Lewis is often moving between acoustic piano, Fender Rhodes, and other keyboards – really opening up his groove at a level that not only shows a strong relationship with Maurice White and Earth Wind & Fire, but which also moves into a love of Brazilian music, spacey funk, and lots lots more. The 2CD set is the best we've ever seen to focus on this period – and features 37 tracks that not only include some key Rhodes classics, but also open up into some important collaborations, unusual instrumental settings, and even some equally great acoustic numbers that show that Ramsey never lost his roots, even while expanding his sound. Titles include "Don't It Feel Good", "Brazilica", "Hot Dawgit", "What It Is", "Slipping Into Darkness", "Eternal Peace", "Lakeshore Cowboy", "Kufanya Mapenzi", "All The Way Live", "Aquarius/Let The Sunshine In", "Whisper Zone", "Come Back Jack", "Slow Dancin", "7-11", "Eye On You", "My Love Will Lead You Home", and "Sassy Stew" – plus duets with Nancy Wilson on "Midnight Rendezvous" and "The Two Of Us".

Neon PhilharmonicBrilliant Colors – The Complete Warner Bros Recordings (Moth Confesses/Neon Philharmonic/singles) ... CD
Warner/Wounded Bird, 1969. New Copy 2CD ... $8.99 18.98
A pair of amazing albums – and a huge amount of bonus material too – all from one of the coolest groups on Warner Brothers at the end of the 60s! First up is the record The Moth Confesses – one of our favorite albums ever from the genius moment of late 60s Warner Brothers – a set we'd rank right up there next to our favorites by Van Dyke Parks and Harper's Bizarre! The set's billed as a "phonograph opera", written by Tupper Saussy – and it's served up with these fantastic arrangements that are ambitious, but nicely handled, too – with lots of groovy currents that keep the whole thing far from soppier territory of cats like Rod McKuen, and always done with that great sense of wit that makes this Warner era so great! There's definitely a few tuneful tracks that could spin as Sunshine Pop hits – but the whole thing's really better taken as a whole, as the way everything comes together with a sense of mood and tone is completely sublime – really a lost aesthetic, and one that deserves new discovery all these many years later. Titles include "Morning Girl", "Brilliant Colors", "Little Sparrow", "The Last Time I Saw Jacqueline", "Cowboy", and "The New Life Out There". Next Is Neon Philharmonic – the second sublime album from Neon Philharmonic – and one that seems to go even deeper than the first in its blend of ambitious musical themes and mature lyrical ideas! The presentation here is even more symphonic than on the first record – but at a level that's never soppy or sleepy – as there's a gentle groove on most tracks, loping around in these really lovely modes that make the tunes sparkle and glisten with the best sort of late 60s Warner Brothers wit! There's this wonderful mix of longing, nostalgia, and a kind of new vision for post-60s adulthood to the record – very hard to describe, but completely wonderful – at once completely heartfelt, but also with a great sense of distance on itself. Titles include "Long John The Pirate", "Do You Remember Dresden", "You Lied", "Forever Hold Your Peace", "Harry", and the wonderful "F Scott Fitzgerald & William Shakespeare". The 22 bonus tracks are especially amazing – rare singles, b-sides, and even some radio spots too – a huge amount of added genius from this incredible group. Bonus titles include "Letters Crossing", "Jody", "Better Times", "A Little Love", "Flowers For Your Pillow", "Snow", "Clouds", "To Be Continued", and "Keep The Faith In Me". CD

✨✧ Harry NilssonNilsson Sings Newman (2nd cover) ... LP
RCA, 1970. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
The pairing of the early genius of Harry Nilsson and Randy Newman – one of the most sublime albums of the early 70s! Nilsson Sings Newman, written by a then fairly unknown Randy Newman was certainly an odd project to undertake for an artist generally regarded as a songwriting talent, but boy is the world better because of it! The whole album is a delicate masterpiece, utilizing Nilsson's great voice to its best-ever effect, and completely disregarding the sometimes self-indulgent trappings of his own writing in favor of Newman's more earnest, and endearingly cynical New Orleans bred pop. Beautiful! Tracks include "Vine St." (also recorded by Van Dyke Parks), "Love Story", "Yellow Man", "Caroline", Cowboy", "Living Without You" and "Dayton Ohio, 1903". LP, Vinyl record album

Not an original full length album from Pere Ubu, but a set that's as crucial to their catalog as any of the first few records – as it brings together all their important early 7" singles, including titles issued on the Hearthan label, and some UK releases on Rough Trade and Chrysalis! Together, the tracks really show the young genius of Dave Thomas and the group – and demonstrate that stunning blend of Ohio roots – that punky/arty mode that always made the Cleveland and Akron scenes so different than the rest of the country. Titles include the classic "30 Seconds Over Tokyo", plus "Final Solution", "Heart Of Darkness", "Cloud 149", "Untitled", "My Dark Ages", "The Book Is On The Table", "Heaven", "Lonesome Cowboy Dave", and "Not Happy".

Public Image Ltd.Public Image – First Issue (2CD deluxe edition) ... CD
Virgin/Light In The Attic, 1978. New Copy 2 CDs Gatefold ... $7.99 16.98
The bracing debut of Public Image Itd! First Issue is seriously one of the most stunning post punk albums of its time – and we think it's light years ahead of the Sex Pistols in terms of boundless creativity and originality. Given that the Pistols disintegrated mere months before First Issue was issued, this album is all the more amazing for how hugely different Public Image is – different from Lydon's own earlier revolutionary punk act and different from pretty much everything else on the late 70s landscape. The dissonant, driving post punk guitars and sneering vocals are recognizable, sure, but the dubby textures and more angular touches are so far outside the box and so hugely influential that it's hard to fathom myriad underground rock acts existing without it. Vital! This excellent 2CD expanded edition from Light In The Attic includes an hour long BBC interview from 1978 – and if you know anything about Mr. Lydon, you know that he's one hell of an interview – plus the rare B-Side "Cowboy Song". Other titles include "Theme", "Religion", "Religion II", "Annalisa", "Public Image", "Low Life", "Attack" and "Fodderstompf". CD

Capitol/Euphoria, Mid 60s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
2 completely groovy records from the great Howard Roberts – both pulled from his fantastic mid 60s stint at Capitol Records! Very groovy! Somethin's Cooking is a hip batch of jazzy tracks played by Howard at the height of his 60s groovy bossa style, and playing with his regular combo plus backing by a larger group of horns. Jack Marshall and Shorty Rogers helped Howard with the arrangements, and the record has that groovy LA jazz sound that graced the best of the Capitol sides of the time. Charles Kynard gets in some nice organ, Howard plays a nicely-toned Epiphone, and titles include "Bluesette", "The Lonesome Cowboy", "Charade", "Maniac", and "Recado Bossa Nova". Goodies is an equally wonderful album – with players that include Charles Kynard, Carol Kaye, Henry Cain, and Pete Jolly – and loads of tracks have an excellent guitar/organ/bass sound to them. Titles include "Goodies", "More", "Summer Wind", "Girl Talk", "Love", and "Fly Me To The Moon". CD

Toots ThielemansToots Thielemans European Quartet Live ... CD
Challenge/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 2000s. New Copy ... $16.99
Toots Thielemans has done countless studio sessions over the years – both under his name, and working with a variety of groups and arrangers – but for some reason, we find his live material to maybe be some of his most powerful – a clear, careful presentation of the honest heart that lies in Thielemans' solos, which seem to shine even more in a spontaneous setting! This set was done relatively late in Toots' career, but has the harmonica legend sounding fantastic – easily hitting those brilliant ballad modes he does so well, but also surprising our ears with a few more powerful numbers too – in the company of Karel Boehlee on piano, Hein Van De Geyn on bass, and Hans Van Oosterhout on drums. Titles include "Circle Of Smile", "Comecar De Novo", "Summertime", "For My Lady", "Ne Me Quitte Pas", "Bluesette", and "Theme From Midnight Cowboy" – which sounds especially nice in Toots' hands! CD

Velvet UndergroundLoaded ... CD
Cotillion, 1970. Used ... Just Sold Out!
The end of the road for the Velvet Underground – but a set that's also one of the group's best-remembered albums too! The record marked a big shift for the group – a move to Atco from Verve, continuing to work without John Cale – and the sound is possibly more rockish and straight ahead than some of their previous efforts (certainly compared to White Light/White Heat) – but always with that dark edge that Lou Reed could bring to the music! In a way, the whole thing's almost a recasting of all the advances made in 60s rock, but seen through a lens that shows the darker corners and shadows that have crept up alongside – that kind of subtle, yet extremely powerful quality that Reed would bring to his long run of solo albums in the 70s – but served up here with more of an edge, in the definite VU fashion. Titles include the seminal classics – "Sweet Jane" and "Rock & Roll", plus "Cool It Down", "New Age", "Head Held High", "Lonesome Cowboy Bill", "Oh Sweet Nuthin", and "I Found A Reason". CD

One of the strangest albums ever from exotica maestro Martin Denny – and one of the coolest as well! The strength of the album is already broadcast by the title – as Denny plays plenty of moog in the record, mixed with his own usual flair for exotic rhythms – expanded slightly by arrangements from Clark Gassman, who really knows how to keep up the pace in a great way. The keyboards have lots of wild sounds, with chirps and flutters that would make Perry & Kingsley proud – and the backing's a bit funkier than usual, with some nice electric basslines to keep the groove coming. Includes a great version of Baden Powell's "Canto De Ossanha", a remake of "Quiet Village", a moody take on "Midnight Cowboy", and a jazzy moogy version of "Cast Your Fate To The Wind". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Fred NeilSessions ... CD
Capitol/Water, 1967. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A real classic from one of our favorite artists of the 60s! Fred Neil is best known to the world as the man who wrote "Everybody's Talkin", which was used excessively in the film Midnight Cowboy (although his version in the film was sung by Nilsson) – but he's a hell of a great artist on his own, a real revolutionary that we'd rank right up there with someone like Tim Hardin or Nick Drake. This Capitol album has Fred playing in a very relaxed studio vibe – with some spare backing, and edgey playing that opens up a side of him that we've rarely heard elsewhere – all in a session that was largely improvised, and designed to recreate the feel of his legendary live shows. The tracks are fairly long, and include titles like "Felicity", "Send Me Somebody To Love", "Looks Like Rain", and "Fools Are A Long Time Coming". CD

✨✧ Kevin AyersWhatevershebringswesing ... CD
Harvest/Water, 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the most sweetly jazzy albums ever recorded by Kevin Ayers – a set that almost has him moving in the more progressive direction taken by Soft Machine after his departure! As on other solo Ayers albums, David Bedford had a strong hand in the arrangements – but his approach here is more focused, and often more sophisticated than before – less in the playful collaborative style of Ayers immediate post-Soft Machine years, and more in an ambitious style that pushes the elements together with a beautifully honed sound. Players on the album include Mike Oldfield on guitar, Didier Malherbe on sax and flute, Gerry Fields on electric viola, and Bedford on keyboards – and titles include "Oh My", "Margaret", "Song From The Bottom Of A Well", "Lullaby", "Champagne Cowboy Blues", "Stranger In Blue Suede Shoes", and "There Is Loving/Among Us/There Is Loving".

Chess/MCA, 1960. Used ... Out Of Stock
Forget the silly cowboy costume on the front cover – because this is a heck of a great album! Bo might have gotten saddled (no pun intended!) with a silly gimmick for the title and image of the set – but the album's one of his best from the early Chess years, and features a rip-roaring batch of tracks that really cut it up in his classic scratchy guitar mode of the time! Lyrics are great – nearly all originals by Bo himself, with that hip swinging, and hard-wailing approach that was always a lot of fun – and cuts include "Gunslinger", "Diddling", "Cheyenne", "Cadillac", and "Doing The Craw-Daddy". CD also features 2 bonus cuts with titles that include "Working Man" & "Do What I Say". CD

✨✧ Lee HazlewoodHouse Safe For Tigers ... CD
Light In The Attic, 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the rarest Lee Hazlewood albums, and one of the coolest, too – the set falls a bit later than some of his other work on the Swedish scene – and, like Cowboy In Sweden, it's also a soundtrack too – but the vibe is different than that one, and almost shows this maturation of Lee's style – as if he's absorbing even more unusual elements during his time overseas, and finding a way to keep growing his sound away from his American years in LA! All the Hazlewood craft for songs and nicely wry vocals is still very much in place – but there's also some nice shifts in the arrangements, too – deepening things some fuller elements at times, yet stepping back into tighter elements at others. Titles include "Soul's Island", "A House Safe For Tigers", "Our Little Boy Blue", "Sand Hill Anna & The Russian", "Absent Friends", and a nice remake of "The Nights"! CD

✨✧ Jimmy SmithJimmy Smith In A Plain Brown Wrappernm ... LP
Verve, 1971. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
A pretty great funk album from Jimmy – and very different than his other jazz work at the time! The record was produced and arranged by soulster Larry Williams, and most tracks have these raspy vocals that we're not sure are Larry's or Jimmy's. But whatever the case, the sound is great – and the tracks work well as messed-up funk numbers with a slight jazzy edge. We might compare the album to some of Larry's work for Okeh during the late 60s, or to later Johnny Hammond albums that feature vocals. Titles include "Number One", "Love Is Mission Impossible", "Zodiac Song", "Recession Or Depression", and "Jimmy Smith Is The Midnight Cowboy". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousNew Jazz Poets ... CD
Folkways, 1967. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A seminal set of righteous underground poetry – a key bridge between the earlier work of Langston Hughes and some of the bigger spoken sides of the 70s by artists like Gil Scott-Heron or Wanda Robinson! As the title promises, there's a definite undercurrent of jazz in the work – but mostly in the subject matter of the poems, or in the riffing way the readers approach the material – since there's really no instrumentation at all to accompany the voices. There's a few names on here that you might recognize, but there's a lot more that you won't – and that makes the album a key look at this under-documented 60s scene. Titles include "Elvin Jones Gretch Freak" by David Henderson, "The Jackal Headed Cowboy" by Ishmael Reed, "Poem To Americans" by Gerald Jackson, "Poem To Ernie Henry" by Gloria Tropp, "Listening To Sonny Rollins at the 5 Spot" by Paul Blackburn, "African Memories" by Joel Oppenheimer, and "Autumn 1964" by Peter LaFarge. CD

✨✧ JamiroquaiAutomaton ... CD
Virgin (Russia), 2017. Used ... Out Of Stock
A new label for Jamiroquai, and a new sound as well – a bit more of an 80s groove than some of the previous records – but still handled with a wonderfully soulful style overall! There's a bit more keyboards and bassy beats in the mix – but the core songwriting is still every bit as strong as before – and these new elements are used in ways that are never clunky at all, and which instead seem to infuse the music with some nicely cosmic currents. Imagine the AOR perfection of Space Cowboy moved into the underground style of the following decade, and you'll get a good idea of the strength of this set – and will find yourself falling in love with the Jamiroquai groove all over again. Titles include "Cloud 9", "Superfresh", "Hot Property", "Shake On It", "Something About You", "Carla", "Nights Out In The Jungle", "Automaton", and "Summer Girl". CD

✨✧ 31st Of February31st Of February (180 gram pressing) (2018 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Vanguard/Craft, 1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great first album from this unusual Florida trio – a hip little group whose members would later end up working with The Allman Brothers, Boz Scaggs, and Cowboy – but who sound plenty darn great here on their own! The style's a lot headier than you might expect – almost with some of the deeper echoes you'd expect from the LA scene of the late 60s – the post-folk explorations of the headier side of rock, done with slight psych undercurrents, and a warm vocal style that's introspective, yet never overindulgent – a really great balance that should have made these guys as big as Buffalo Springfield or Crosby Stills & Nash at the time. A few moments get somewhat heavy, but never too much so – and the album's filled with great original numbers that include "Sandcastles", "Porcelain Mirrors", "Pedestals", "A Different Kind Of Head", "Free", "Pick A Gripe", and "Cries Of Treason".

An excellent collection of instrumentals from John Barry – a good slice of his later work, moving away from the Bond sound into some more abstract, mellow, and darker moments. There's some really great mellow tracks on here – done with instrumentation kind of floating in and out of the mix with gentle ease – and titles include "Midnight Cowboy", "On Her Majesty's Secret Service", "Fun City", "Romance For Guitar & Orchestra", "The More Things Change", and "Afternoon".

A&M, 1967. Very Good+ ... $1.99
Wonderfully jaunty and jagged work from trumpeter Herb Alpert – and a session that has him opening up the Tijuana Brass groove a bit more than usual! There's clearly an influence here of the Brazilian sound that was showing up strongly at A&M Records at the time – heard to greatest effect on the album's version of Chico Buarque's "A Banda", but also in gentler, more subtle ways that seem to emerge in other tunes that trade the group's older sound for one that has more of a bossa sense of subtlety. Also, there's some great A&M pop that's beginning to emerge here too – as in the album's great takes on "The Happening" and "Love So Fine" – both of which really sound beautiful here! Other tracks include "Cowboys & Indians", "Flea Bag", "Love Nest", and "Bud". LP, Vinyl record album

Conspiracy International (UK), 1982. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99
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

Warner/Water, 1970. New Copy ... $7.99 17.99
A really unusual album from actor Jack Palance – unusual in that it may well be his only vocal performance on record, and even more unusual in that it came out during a very hip stretch of Warner Brothers at the start of the 70s! Yet the pairing of Palance and the budding genius of Warner maybe makes perfect sense – as the aging actor is a great fit here for the sorts of moods that you'd find in the bluer songs of Van Dyke Parks, or the subtle drama of Neon Philharmonic – even though the whole thing is less of a Los Angeles affair overall – as it was produced by Buddy Killen in Nashville, with some arrangements by Bergen White. You could call the record a country album, and there's definitely some country elements here – but Jack kind of sing/speaks, and maybe presents the whole thing as a meaner, more mature take on modes that some of the other cowboys on the screen were recording a decade before. Palance also wrote some of the songs – including "The Meanest Guy That Ever Lived" – and other titles include "Goodbye Lucy", "Blackjack County Chains", "A Little Bitty Tear", "Love Can Only Mean You", "Dancing Like Children", and "Brother River".

✨✧ Alex PudduGolden Age Of Danish Pornography Vol 3 ... CD
Schema (Italy), 2016. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A great third chapter in the Danish Pornography series by Alex Puddu – and, like the others, music that was recorded to accompany the re-release of some classic adult films from the 70s! As you'd guess from the title and project, the sound here is very retro overall – wicked funk that works very hard to hit all the right slinky and sleazy notes needed to accompany the images of grown-up fun on the screen – with plenty of electric touches on a range of different keyboards and guitar (and even a bit of electric sitar, too) – in grooves that have a nicely building vibe, but which never try too hard to overtake the visual energy of the moment. In other words (if we can extend this metaphor even further), Alex is great at the foreplay, keeps things going a long time, and really knows how to build to a musical climax – on titles that include "Lesbian Lovers", "The Swinger Generation", "Cowboys Do It Better", "Black Orgasm", "Seductive Star", "Africa Scream", "Exotic Love", "Behind Closed Doors", and "Sex Bar".

Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Great group soul from the wonderful Brunswick Records – and a sweet selection that goes way beyond the hits and the bigger groups who recorded for the label! Sure, Brunswick is known for its big groups from Chicago – who were some of the best of their time – but the label also recorded a lot of up-and-comers who were totally great too – but who never got to put together a full album for the label! Lots of those groups are collected here – in a wonderful collection that's filled with soaring harmonies, deep soul leads, and some totally groovy arrangements that are in the best Brunswick ultra-hip style of the early 70s. Titles include "Chickens" by Complaments, "Purple Haze" by Johnny Jones & King Casuals, "Lonely Street" by The Admirations, "I'll Take You Just As You Come" by The Nialations, "Until You came Along" by The Visitors, "I Think I'll Cry Out Loud" by The Realistics, "The Sweetest Thing" by Channel 3, "Sing A Ling" by The Cooperettes, "Don't Fail Me Now" by The Symphonics, "A Strange Way" by The Loreleis, "Don't Take It Out On This World" by Adam's Apples, "Cowboys To Girls" by Jalynne Sound, "He's Got Your Number" by The Demures, and "Stay With Me Baby" by BW & The Next Edition.

✨✧ Gene ChandlerThere Was A Time (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Brunswick/Demon (UK), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A soaring, burning set from Gene Chandler – completely different than his early hits, and a key point in the transformation of Chicago soul in the 60s! Gene's always had a heck of a great vocal range – and he really gets a chance to use it to best effect on this album of jaunty and groovy little tracks – tunes that bounce around with that majestic Chi-soul style of the late 60s, all produced to perfection by the great Carl Davis! The sound is sublime – a pulling together of so many different strands into one bold, proud sound – sophisticated yet soulful, and with a rhythmic component that really sets the album apart from the pack. And even when Gene's singing tunes that you may know from other singers' hits, he does a tremendous job of transforming them – recasting them into his more mature groove, and managing to funky them up in ways we wouldn't expect! Evidence to this is the album's great version of James Brown's "There Was A Time" – which is followed by loads of other great cuts, including "Cowboys To Girls", "Fooling Around", "Pit Of Loneliness", "Never Gonna Give You Up", and "Laughter To Tears".

The set features lots of production work from Butch Ingram, in a style that's similar to his other recent projects on the Society Hill label – music that takes the older Philly soul spirit into the contemporary generation, but all without losing any of the care or class of the earlier days. Almost all the songs were written by the Gamble & Huff duo – and titles on this second volume include "Let's Groove" by People's Choice, "Don't Let It Go To Your Head" by Jean Carne, "I Should Be Your Lover" by The Legendary Bluenotes featuring Sugarbear, "Slow Motion" by Johnny Flash, "Free Love" by Jean Carne, "I Wanna Know Your Name" by People's Choice, "Dance Turned Into A Romance" by Vicki Austin, "Let's Make A Baby" by The Illusions, "I'll Always Love My Mama" by Tony Strong & The Philly Soul, and "Cowboys To Girl" by Philly Cream.

A totally cool little record – and one that was so rare, it was initially only pressed up to give to the singers and performers who worked on its grooves! The music here is all from a talent show in Brooklyn, circa 1968 – headed by the Youth In Action charity, and filled with very strong performances by soulful, youthful talents right from the streets! The whole thing's got a very raw feel – like the funkiest of the funky 45s from the time – and the recording is also live, with an audience that's getting pretty darn wild as the set moves on. Tracks mix great group soul performances with gritty funk and soul instrumentation – and tracks include "I Want To Be Sweeter To You" by The United Souls, "Love Makes A Woman" by Carla & The Carlettes, "I Wish It Would Rain" by Channels 4, "Come & Get These Memories" by Sharon Seabrook & The Starlettes, "Cowboys To Girls" by The Destinations, and "Thrillers Band" by The Thrillers Band.
