Mario BiondiDare ... CD
Sony (Italy), 2021. New Copy ... $24.99 29.99
Mario Biondi looks a bit angelic on the cover, but his vocals are still nicely down to earth – that wonderfully raspy charm that made us love his music right from the start, and which makes Mario one of the key folks to carry forward the legacy of older jazz singers like Mark Murphy or Mose Allison! Part of that legacy is heard here in remakes of classic Blue Note tunes – but there's also plenty of Biondi's own touches as well – partly in the original songs he brings to the date, but also in the work with Italian groups like the High Five Quintet and Fabrizio Bosso Spiritual Jazz Trio – not to mention his own group, led by keyboardist Massimo Greco – and work on two tracks by Incognito too! With all that instrumental talent on board, the album's a jazzy delight throughout – and titles include "Jeannine", "Paradise", "No Show", "Cantaloupe Island", "Someday We'll All Be Free", "Give Our Love Another Chance", "Dream For Two", "Sunny Days", and "Simili".

Aziza (Dave Holland/Chris Potter/Lionel Loueke/Eric Harland)Aziza ... LP
Dare 2, 2016. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99 25.99
A really unusual group, with a sound that's certainly the sum of its wonderful parts – but also different in ways you might not expect! The lineup is excellent – the legendary Dave Holland on bass, Lionel Loueke on guitar, Chris Potter on tenor and soprano sax, and Eric Harland on drums – all working together in these very groovy styles that seem to have Holland pulling a lot more bold basslines than usual – almost as if he's using an electric version of the instrument, although it appears to just be an acoustic with a pickup! There's a soulful vibe to the record that you might not expect – shades of color and tone that are maybe closest to Loueke's music, but also very different than his own records – and Potter's really great in this setting, and blows with these open lines that are still as angular and sharp as usual, but maybe a bit warmer too. Titles include "Blue Sufi", "Aziza Dance", "Summer 15", "Walkin The Walk", and "Finding The Light". LP, Vinyl record album

Kenny Barron/Dave Holland Trio with Johnathan BlakeWithout Deception ... CD
Dare 2, 2020. New Copy ... $12.99 13.99
This isn't the first time that pianist Kenny Barron and bassist Dave Holland have played together – but there's definitely something special about the record that really grabs our ears – and it's not just the excellent work on drums by Johnathan Blake! Barron's at his roundest, most soulful sort of tone – really grabbing the notes out of the air in this wonderful way – and Holland really follows suit too, with this very personal, organic approach that's such a change from some of his more experimental work of years back – and which makes him a stunning part of the group, especially at all those many moments when he and Barron dance around each other's sound with this beautifully resonant vibe. Titles include "Until Then", "Porto Alegre", "Without Deception", "Speed Trap", "Secret Places", "Worry Later", and "Pass It On". CD

✨✧ Dave Holland QuintetCritical Mass ... CD
Dare 2, 2006. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wonderfully warm and soulful session from bassist Dave Holland – thanks to contributions from a younger batch of players that includes Chris Potter on saxes and Steve Nelson on vibes! Both Potter and Nelson really make the record something special – Potter for his angular, well-crafted lines on tenor and soprano sax – and Nelson for his dark-edged vibes, which always add a new dimension to any group he works with! Other players are pretty great too – and include Robin Eubanks on trombone and Nate Smith on drums – and titles are all originals by group members, very fresh numbers from the hipper side of the soulful jazz spectrum! Titles include "The Eyes Have It", "Easy Did It", "Vicissitudes", "The Leak", "Secret Garden", "Lucky Seven", and "Amator Silenti". CD

✨✧ Jeffery Scott GreerSchematics For A Blank Stare Vol 2 ... LP
Funk Night, 2021. New Copy ... $13.99 15.00
Jeffrey Scott Greer is a one-man funky powerhouse here – playing drums, Fender Rhodes, guitar, moog, congas, bass, and even jazzy flute – but all with a sharpness that makes the record every bit as great as music from a much larger funk ensemble! In fact, we dare say that Greer's work here might rival some of the best on some of the funky 45 labels we've been digging for the past decade or two – as he seems to handle all his instruments with effortless ease, maybe even more intuitive to the groove than a bunch of guys trying to work together in the studio to come up with the same vibe! There's often a lot of fuzz on the guitar, warmth on the Rhodes, and some sweet soul touches on the flute – and titles on this second volume include "Moody", "Well Traveled Rhodes", "Lava Lamp Dance", "Lovely Lady", "Funky 424", and "Fuzz Face".

✨✧ Erkin KorayErkin Koray 2 ... LP
Dogon/Survival Research (Italy), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
Excellent mid 70s work from one of the hippest dudes in Turkey – guitarist Erik Koray, a player who had a wonderful talent for mixing together a range of cross-cultural influences! The style here is a lot more sophisticated than that of Koray's first album – in a mode that shakes off some of the simpler beat group influences, and goes for a more expansive approach that blends Turkish musical modes with lots of rhythmic elements, psychedelic production, and some extra-nice guitar. Many tracks have vocals – all echoey and dark, sliding into the mix very nicely – and if we dare say it, a few of the best numbers even hit a tripped out style of funk! Titles include "Sevince", "Arap Saci", "Estarabim", "Eyvah", "Saskin", "Komsu Kizi", and "Gonul Salincagi". LP, Vinyl record album

Chet BakerAlbert's House (2021 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Beverly Hills/Liberation Hall, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... On November 26, 2021
A lost little gem from Chet Baker – recorded with a gentle, homey feel that we really like! The album's not one of the standouts in Chet's catalog, but it's got a personal, almost intimate quality that we find really compelling – almost a broken soul sense of playing, with Chet stumbling a bit amidst relaxed backings by a small combo that includes Barney Kessel on guitar, and Paul Smith on piano and organ. The tunes are nothing fancy, but often quite nice – and the set includes a number of original tunes written by Steve Allen that get past the obvious Baker numbers. Titles include "Abert's House", "Farewell San Francisco", "Time", "How Dare You Sir", "End Of The Line", "Life", and "Sunday In Town". (Note: This item is not for sale online until 7:00am on Saturday, November 27.

Terence BlanchardAbsence ... CD
Blue Note, 2021. New Copy ... $12.99 13.99
Absence is a word that can instantly have a sense of sadness, but it can also have a sort of beauty, too – and that's definitely the case in this album of work done as a tribute to the great Wayne Shorter by trumpeter Terence Blanchard! The record's way more than just a collection of Shorter's tunes – and although it features a few numbers penned by the saxophonist, there's also a set of new music by Blanchard and his piansist too – really lovely numbers that have the trumpeter at his most evocative – in maybe a condensed expression of some of the modes he brings to his larger soundtrack material. The core group is his E-Collective – with Fabian Almazan on piano, Charles Altura on guitar, David Ginyard on bass, and Oscar Seaton on drums – but maybe the most interesting aspect of the record is the gentle use of the Turtle Island String Quartet, who shade in Blanchard's deeper ideas in a nicely subtle way. Titles include "I Dare You", "Envisioned Reflections", "When It Was Now", "Diana", "The Elders", "Dark Horse", "The Second Wave", and "Fall". CD

Peven EverettSpeed Of Light ... CD
Studio Confession, 2002. New Copy ... $6.99 13.99
Excellent work from Peven Everett – another one of his home-made underground soul CDs, issued by Peven himself as a big "F#$% You" to the major labels that have screwed around with him in the past! The CD is a brilliant mix of soul, jazz, house, and touches of Afro-centric rhythms – crafted in a swirling mix that dips back 30 years into the history of soul, yet still points the way towards a richly positive future – sounding a heck of a lot more "real" than just about anyone else we can think of on the market today, and showing Everett as a burgeoning soul genius – on a par with D'Angelo, Norman Harris, Donnie Hathaway – and, dare we say it, Marvin Gaye. Tracks include "Testin Me", "Stroll By The River", "Run Around", "One More Time", "Puerto Rico", and "Your Letter". 13 tracks in all! CD

The timeless righteous soul hit "Wake Up Everybody" – done by John Legend with the Roots, Common & Melanie Fiona – paired up with the classic original version by Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes with Teddy Pendergrass! John Legend & The Roots work in a groove that's faithful to the original, with lead vocals traded from John to Melanie Fiona, with a new rhymed verse by Common. You know they did the track justice if they'd dare put the purely classic original version on the flip! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Julie LondonJulie Is Her Name ... LP
Liberty, Late 50s. Very Good- ... $14.99
A landmark album in 50s vocal jazz – spare, moody, and evocative tunes from Julie London – sung in a stripped-down setting that few other singers would dare at the time! The sound of the set is as sexy as the cover – intimate, personal, and breathily sung in a mode that comes across with a brashly adult presentation of the material. Backing only features Barney Kessel on guitar and Ray Leatherwood on bass – leaving Julie plenty of room to take over the record with her vocals – a real masterpiece of understatement, given the setting! Titles include her famous version of "Cry Me A River" – virtually THE version of the tune – plus "I Should Care", "Say It Isn't So", "Gone With The Wind", "Laura", and "Can't Help Loving That Man".

Chris McGregor's Brotherhood Of BreathTravelling Somewhere ... CD
Cuneiform, 1973. Used ... $14.99
One of the few recordings available from the classic period of Chris McGregor's famous Brotherhood Of Breath ensemble – the African-tinged jazz combo that grew out of the wreckage of the ex-patriation of South Africa's Blue Notes ensemble as it mixed with members of the London scene in the late 60s. The resultant group was one of the most compelling cross cultural moments in jazz history – a mix of players that included Dudu Pukwana, Mongezi Feza, Nick Evans, Harry Beckett, Harry Miller, Evan Parker, and Louis Moholo. This live set was recorded in Bremen, Germany in 1973 – and it easily ranks with the best of the group's studio work, and (dare way say it?) may be their most perfect realization of the idiom they always promise, yet sometimes didn't deliver. Titles include "Wood Fire", "The Bridge", "MRA", "Restless", and "Kongi's Theme". CD

ReplacementsLet It Be ... LP
Twin Tone/Rhino, 1984. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
The masterpiece by one of the greatest, most sincere rock bands of all time! Let It Be veers all over the place, or at least as much as jangly rock music can, in the best way possible. Includes the pseudo twangy opener "I Will Dare", with the distinctly midwestern hardcore of the group's earlier years showing up on "We're Coming Out" and "Tommy Gets His Tonsils Out", and Westerberg's great heart-on-sleeve, ragged balladry appearing for the closers. Like the Meat Puppets and X, the 'Mats really found themselves after they shed the rigid rules of punk rock, and developed into something every bit as honest and heartfelt. They followed the rock songbook just enough to keep their work warm and familiar, but with way too huge and hard-pounding heart to ever seem even the least bit derivative. Hell, they even make Kiss's "Black Diamond" sound sincere! Other tracks include "Favorite Thing", "Androgynous", "Unsatisfied", "Seen Your Video", "Gary's Got A Boner", "Sixteen Blue" and "Answering Machine". LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny VincentDiamond Distance & Liquid Fury – Sonny Vincent Primitive 1969-1976 (with download) ... LP
HoZac, Late 60s-Mid 70s. New Copy ... $15.99 19.99
A seriously strong batch of late 60s and early 70s recordings from earlier bands led by Sonny Vincent – later of relatively unsung NYC punk heroes The Testors (and featuring an unreleased Testors track) – here with early bands Distance, Fury and Liquid Diamonds and bridging the fuzzed out oozing rawness of proto punk like the Stooges and the MC5 at the time to, dare we say it, the kind of spontaneous guitar heroics of Hendrix without ever losing the pre-punk connective tissue. Vincent is a figure whose pedigree and influence reaches far and wide, having gone on from the punk era to play with Moe Tucker of the Velvet underground for years, and for being directly influential to later un-pigeonhole-able bands like Rocket From The Crypt, this is pretty great look at some of earliest stuff. Includes "She's Like Hiroshima", "Indecision", "Flying", "Aw Maw, "Scary" (the aforementioned Testors tune) and more – even a crazy old radio ad for a local NYC show that sounds like a drive-in movie clip!

VariousPurple Snow – Forecasting the Minneapolis Sound (4LPs with book) ... LP
Numero, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 4 LPs ... $79.99 84.98
The amazing prequel to the big wave of funk and soul that exploded from the Minneapolis scene at the end of the 70s – early sounds that really point the way towards later grooves from folks like Prince, Alexander O'Neal, Andre Cymone, and the team of Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis! The massive package is one of the best-ever sets from the Numero Group – not just a brilliant collection of music, but a rich book-like presentation of this important time in the Twin Cities scene – with a huge booklet of notes, memories, and loads of vintage photos! The whole thing's like taking the quality of Numero's books and mixing it with the focus of their best compilations – and the heavy package is filled with loads and loads of gems that really re-map the whole rise to glory of some of the bigger names of the time. You'll hear sounds here by folks who later recorded under more famous labels, and other sublime cuts by groups who never fully got their due at the time – such as the wonderful Haze, a group we've always loved. Instrumentation is heavy on keyboards and bass – but used in ways that are often a bit warmer and more spontaneous than the electric funk of later Minneapolis years – tied in more strongly to the sound of the underground in other American cities. Titles include "Get It On" by Prophets Of Peace, "I Love You" by Herman Jones, "Taste Of Love" by Aura, "Expense" by Cohesion, "It's The Things That You Do" by Flyte Tyme, "Higher" by Lewis Connection, "I Do Love My Lady" by Haze, "Stone Lover" by Music Love & Funk, "Together" by Rockie Robbins, "Do You Dare" by Alexander O'Neal, "I've Got My Eyes On You" by The Girls, "Can You Deal With It" by Quiet Storm, "Should I Or Should I Not" by Sue Ann Carwell, "No One Else Can Do It To Me Baby" by Mind & Matter, and "Oh Lover" by Orville Shannon.

What sounded like a disappointing, and way too calculatedly provocative follow-up to Straight Outta Compton back in 1991 now sounds to us like the peak of Dr. Dre's career as a producer.

Plus, with the passing of the years, we can now find a lot more darkly humorous moments in all of the ultra-violent, damn near Clockwork Orange level mischief. Titles include "Real Niggaz Don't Die", "Niggaz 4 Life", "Appetite For Destruction", "Findum, F*ckum, & Flee", and many more.

Ella's vocals are as great as those of the soul superstar divas of the day, and she's backed by a beautifully tight band – in a style that rivals, or dare we say it, may even better some of the great records made at Hi or Stax at the time! Here's proof that some of the deepest soul ever made in Tennessee was actually recorded in Nashville. Tracks include "Stop Giving Your Man Away", "Sweeter And Sweeter", "Fragile", "Starving For Love", "He Called Me Baby", "All The Time", "The Affair" and more. Fantastic! CD

Anthony Joseph has been one of the most righteous talents to emerge in recent years – and each new record just seems to go deeper and deeper – with a sense of righteous energy that you can probably guess here from the title! We dare say that this set may be Joseph's best recording ever – done with superb arrangements by producer Jason Yarde, who makes great use of a jazz-based ensemble that features work from Shabaka Hutcings Denys Baptiste on tenor and bass clarinet, Florian Pelissier on piano and organ, and Yarde himself on alto and baritone! There's a sense of mission in Anthony's music that we've never heard this strongly – and the tracks move with a sense of majesty that really fits the words – on titles that include "Maka Dimweh", "Calling England Home", "Kamau", "The Gift", and "Language".

Backatcha (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
A really unique take on the familiar territory of the funky soul compilation – a set that seems to dig up music that's a genre all unto itself – with very little ties to the popular modes in the mainstream at the time! It's really hard to describe the appeal of these tunes in just a few words – some are very personal and intimate, all are very soulful – but the range of approaches is very different, and in ways that we might even dare call experimental – even though all the tunes here are straight and tuneful! A number of cuts almost seem to mix sweet soul vocals with more psychedelic inspirations, but that's only the start of the sound here – a really rich world of discovery, with titles that include "Just A Star" by Smiles, "Never Get A Chance" by Nature's Choice, "You Got That Right" by Antwans, "We Need Each Other" by Joe Walker, "Come Inside" by Stride, "Slacking Off" by Massauvians, "Swave Villi Us" by Aka Shaic, "Norfolk Sound" by Ray T Jones, "Changes" by No ID, "Just Loving You" by Small Society, and "For Old Times Sakes" by Spice.

Cinevox (Italy), Mid 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $26.99 30.99
A trio of cool cop soundtracks from Stelvio Cipriani – all brought together in a beautiful package with a really unified feel! Cipriani's easily one of our favorite Italian composers for the cop/crime genre – as he's got a way of bringing sensitive sounds into play with driving action – in ways that are different from Morricone, Piccioni, or any of his other contemporaries! These tunes have a great balance between careful strings, warm themes, and more pointed action – often hanging their sound on a key element, such as a keyboard line, or off-tuned piano – and moving carefully forward with a really great ear for space and timing. Things are never sleepy, even when spacious – and the tunes ring out with a heavenly quality that could almost sanctify the acts of crime for which they were initially scored. This massive package goes past any other version of the material – with a huge amount of work – 15 tracks from Sta A Guardare, 24 tracks from Chiede Aiuto, and 22 from Le Mani Legate – plus 6 more bonus tracks from singles, and one more with Cipriani in session!

Fremeaux & Associates (France), Late 10s/1920s/1930s/1940s/1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 3CD ... $22.99 29.99
Caribbean styles hit the American scene – then get transformed into something completely different in this huge collection of recordings that span styles that include jazz, Latin, R&B, soul, and blues! In some cases, the Caribbean element comes through in the song structure – which might be lifted directly, then reworked for an American audience. But at other times, the influence is more in the rhythms or instrumentation – used as inspiration to then create something new – a bit in the way that American soul would provide the inspiration for reggae in the 60s.

✨✧ Wladyslaw KomendarekPlaneta Smiechu (with bonus tracks) ... CD
ANA/GAD (Poland), 1989. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A cool set of keyboard work and electronics from late 80s Poland – all served up with a sound and style that's very much in keeping with the cosmic look of the cover! Wladyslaw Komendarek uses a variety of Roland, Casio, and Yamaha keyboards to take a journey out into the cosmos – leaving the planet on waves of keyboards driven by drum machine rhythms – much more spacey and textural than just straight song-based – still pretty tuneful, but with a nice sense of openness that continues as the record moves on – and all without any vocals at all. Titles include "Planeta Smiechu 2", "Kosmiczne Reggae", "Pogon Za Laserem", and "Pozegnanie Kosmitow". CD features four other bonus tracks too – including "Opetnie", "Obiegowa Gra", and "Budowa Nowego Swiata". CD

✨✧ Wladyslaw KomendarekWladyslaw Komendarek (with bonus tracks) ... CD
GAD (Poland), 1985. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A cool keyboardist from the 80s scene in Poland – working here on all the best Roland, Korg, and Arp instruments of the time – and with this lean, stripped-down groove that's almost got a Kraftwerk feel overall! The music's never too cheesy – with none of those "too easy" 80s rhythm programs that always made for too much stiffness – and instead, Wladyslaw really keeps this spontaneous feel in some of his keyboard work – much looser and more groovy than lots of the other keyboard-heavy soundtrack or sound library material at the time, yet still never commercial or kitschy either. The balance is hard to describe, but totally perfect throughout – and the record's a gem if you dig any sort of 80s sound library music, and even some of the best underground electro work of the period too. Titles include "Super Express", "Ranek Nad Wisla", "Tesknota Zeglarza", "Polowanie W Puszcy Bialej", "Krople Rosy", and "Podwodny Spacer". CD features seven more bonus tracks from the same time – titles that include "Trzeci Test", "Smaczna Stonina", "Morskie Figle", and "Samotna Pacynka". CD

Whit Boyd ComboParty Girls ... CD
Modern Harmonic, 1969. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
Funky organ jazz from a very unlikely source – a Texas-made porno from 1969, and a movie that dared ask the question "Do prostitutes make good wives?" The music is unusual in that it's actually pretty darn good – nice small combo jazz, often with a good current of funk in the mix – surprisingly still around after all these years, on audio tapes that stand where no extant copy of the film remains! The sound is nice and raw – heavy drums, plenty of Hammond, and some trumpet solos too – all with a feel that's maybe more like a gem from the contemporary funk underground, although a lot grittier overall! Plus, most tracks are nice and long – clearly scored for extended sex scenes – which is a real rarity for music like this of the time, usually served up on the short side of a funky 45. The set begins with the trailer-like "Don't Miss The Party Girls" – then soars into the 15 minute "Nikki & The College Boys", and the 23 minute "Party Scene/Strip Poker" – plus a version of the James Brown tune "I Got The Feelin". CD features bonus tracks – "Marathon Groove", "The First Girl's Story", and "Chardonnay Negligee" – plus the full take of the James Brown tune! CD

Serge GainsbourgL'Album De Sa Vie – 100 Titres (5CD set) ... CD
Universal (France), Late 50s/1960s/1970s. New Copy 5CD ... $36.99
A massive collection of music from one of our favorite singers of all time – the legendary Serge Gainsbourg, a French vocalist who worked equally well in jazzy, funk, and groovy modes – always with a groundbreaking quality that had Serge taking his lyrics to places that few previous singers dared to touch! This set brings together work from the earliest years of Gainsbourg – when he was mixing jazz and Latin modes in a hip Left Bank sort of style – then really shows him taking off in the 60s, bringing in funk in the 70s, and even working with some Jamaican dub elements towards the end of the package! There's a few key duets with Jane Birkin, and one more with Jane Birkin – and titles include "Sea Sex & Sun", "Mister Iceberg", "Bonnie & Clyde", "Ballade De Melody Nelson", "Cargo Culte", "L'Hotel Peculier", "Amour Sans Amour", "Coco & Co", "Ces Petits Riens", "Black & White", "Ford Mustang", "Initials BB", "Requiem Pour Un Con", "Sex Shop", "Torry Canyon", "Ah Melody", "En Melody", "Hold Up", "New York USA", "La Javanaise", "Aux Armes Et Caetra", "Daisy Temple", "Harley David Son Of A Bitch", "Sorry Angel", "Ronsard 58", "Black Trombone", "Elisa", "Nazi Rock", "Vu De L'Exterieur", and even the wild "Lemon Incest" – a duet with his daughter, Charlotte Gainsbourg.

VariousRight To Rock – Episodo Uno – The Mexican & Chicano Rock & Roll Rebellion 1955 to 1963 ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
One of the coolest overviews of early Chicano rock we've ever seen – a set that really lays the groundwork for some of the bigger music to come – but with the sort of deep-digging style we love on other compilations from the Bear Family label! Most of this work was recorded in LA – but there's also tracks from Mexico City, Memphis, and Dallas – served up in a mixture of English and Spanish vocals, and all with the kind of searing intensity that often made the East LA scene such a hotbed of music as the 50s moved into the 60s – an underground that was often much farther from the mainstream than any of the early rock worlds of Memphis or points down south. The mix of material is great – a few covers, great original material, vocals and instrumentals – in a huge set list of 37 tracks all supported with the deeply detailed notes and vintage images we love from Bear Family. Titles include "Rock Little Darlin" by Max Uballez, "Rockin Blues" by Chris Montez, "Fast Freight" by Arvee Allens, "Come On Let's Dance" by The Carlos Brothers, "La Plaga" by Los Teen Tops, "La Chica Alborotada" by Los Locos Del Ritmo, "Maybelline" by Armando Almendarez, "La Paloma" by Tito Guizar & His El Rancho Rocks, "Denise" by Chuck Rio, "Dooby-Dooby-Wah" by Ritchie Valens, "Slow Down Sally" by Eddie Quinteros, "Hi You Silver" by The Augie Garcia Quintet, "Sarah Lee" by Bob Orrison, "El Vampiro" by Los Gibson Boys, and "South Of The Border" by Mando & The Chili Peppers.

Repsychled, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $14.99
A huge batch of Peruvian rock from the late 60s & early 70s – some hard driving and garagey, others more soulful or more psychedelic – fantastic stuff from groups like Los Incognitos, Los Texao, Madera Fresca, Free Love System and Opus! The groups work in a number of global rock influences, and they pull it all off very well, with excellent drumming and guitars on most tunes, and keys. Excellent stuff from the fertile Peruvian scene! A massive set of 21 tracks: "La Pelea Del Gobernador", "Stone" and more by Los Texao, "Un Paseo Por El Recuerdo", "Correteando Anoranzas" and more by Free Love System, "Ya Sera Tarde" , "Siempre Te Recordare" and more by Los Incognitos, "Amy Time" and "La Lenta Que Apura" by Madera Fresca, "Va Y Bien" by Opus and more.

✨✧ Kourosh YaghmaeiBack From The Brink – Pre-Revolution Psychedelic Rock From Iran – 1973 to 1979 (3LP set) ... LP
Now Again, 1970s. New Copy 3LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Melodic psychedelia from 70s Iran – an incredible full scale anthology of recordings by guitarist and vocalist Kourosh Yaghmaei from the pre-revolution years – and an absolute treasure! Kouroush often recorded with his brothers – Kourosh singing lead and playing guitars or bass – with Kamran Yaghmaei on guitars and backing vocals and Kambiz Yaghmaei on keys and backing vocals. Other players contribute drums, bass and occasional additional elements – harmonica or horns on few tracks. The sound is a really wonderful amalgam of western garage, psych and strains of funk with native Iranian modes and tempos. The songs here sink in on an emotional level without us knowing a word of the language – the passionate vocals work wonderfully in that regard – but musically, it's innovative stuff that's nicely tripped out and heavily rhythmic, without compromising the melodic sensibility. The heavy duty 3LP set features 21 tracks in all – in a sweet 6 panel gatefold with a 24 page booklet – featuring extensive notes and photos, with Kourosh's story told in autobiographical detail. Like other recent Now Again packages, it's really beautifully done! Titles include "Gol E Yakh", "Dar Enteha", "Paiz", "Leila", "Del Dareh Pir Misheh", "Shirin Joon", "Ghazal", "Mosafere Shahre Baran", "Saghe", "Niyayesh", "Saraabe Toe", "Baroona", "Khaar", Bachehaye Khoobe Koocheh" and more.

A sweet AOR charmer from Randle Chowning – a singer you might know from his work in Ozark Mountain Daredevils, and who works here in a smoother take on the groove of that well-known group! The Daredevils always used a cool, compressed style on their vocals – and that approach sounds even better here, amidst warm and jazzy instrumentation – all produced by Paul Leka with a nice LA vibe, which really fits the gently-tripping groove of the tunes. Titles include "Black Leather", "Within A Dream", "Crazy Over You", "Sweet Love", "So Close To The Feeling", "Gettin Higher", and "Outside The Law". CD
