Ron GeesinExpoZoom ... LP
Dark Companion (Italy), 1969. New Copy ... $28.99
Rare work from Ron Geesin – that unique British talent whose resume involved hundreds of unusual records – from early exotica sides, to work with Pink Floyd, to a number of famous records that feature his talents in the studio! Here, Ron's an experimental musician – creating these short pieces for films that ran in the British pavilion at Expo 70 in Japan – music that's in the territory of some of his darkest, starkest work on record – part sound library, part musique concrete, and part experimental industrial – the last no surprise, as many of these pieces were designed to accompany industrial films! This music has never been released before, and Ron provides notes on all the unique instrumentation throughout – on titles that include "Sprayed Steel", "Petro Forge", "Float Glass A", "End Wall 1", "Concorde", "Rolls Royce", "Blind Landing", and "Robotics". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited hand numbered first colored edition of 500 copies.)

North Sea Radio Orchestra with John Greaves & Annie BarbazzaFolly Bololey – Songs From Robert Wyatt's Rock Bottom (includes bonus gold CD) ... LP
Dark Companion (Italy), 2019. New Copy Gatefold ... $32.99
A very cool reworking of the classic Rock Bottom album by Robert Wyatt – done with larger orchestrations from the North Sea Radio Orchestra, but at a level that's still very faithful to the spirit of the original record! The instrumentation is filled with lots of cool solo touches – work on vibes, cello, Farfisa organ, and clarinet – all topped with vocals from Annie Barbazza and John Greaves – both singers whose voices are different than Wyatt, but who often use the same cresting approach to the lyrics of the songs – which makes for a really wonderful transformation of the music. The whole thing's as beautiful as you might expect – a lovely testament to the strength of the original compositions – and titles include "Little Red Riding Hood Hit The Road", "Alifib", "Alifie", "Little Red Robin Hood Hit The Road", "A Last Straw", and "Sea Song". Bonus CD also features bonus tracks from other Wyatt albums – "O Caroline", "Shipbuilding", "Maryan", and "The British Road". LP, Vinyl record album
(Hand-numbered limited edition of 500 – with bonus gold CD!)

VariousVoguing & The House Ballroom Scene Of New York City 1976 to 1996 – Part 1 ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s/1980s/Early 90s. Near Mint- 2LP ... $24.99
A musical document of an amazing moment in the New York scene – the late 80s/early 90s wave of vogue balls – which were almost a collision of club culture with high fashion! There was a particularly rich gender-bending element to the vogue scene – and the music that accompanied it was a key part of that activity – tracks that had already risen to fame in crossover clubs from previous years, taken to new heights by DJs who provided music along with the voguing activity – in a great array of grooves from the disco years through early house music, brought together in ways that made 80s musical evolution make a heck of a lot of sense! The compilation album is a companion to the excellent book of the same name – also by Soul Jazz – and this 2LP part 1 version features tracks that include "Moment Of My Life" by Inner Life, "The Ha Dance (Ken/Lou mixx)" by Masters At Work, "Just Like A Queen (share the throne mix)" by Ellis D, "Is It All Over My Face" by Loose Joints, "Body Drill" by 2 Body's, "Love Hangover" by Diana Ross, "The Witch Doctor (dark ages mix)" by Armand Van Helden, and "Break 4 Love (Spanish fly mix)" by Raze.

✨✧ Leo SmithSpirit Catcher ... LP
Nessa, 1979. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
Really haunting work from Leo Smith – a key 70s session that features some of his sharpest trumpet work on record, plus some unusual instrumentation that really makes the album stand out! Half the tracks feature some wonderful vibes from Bobby Naughton – spare and dark-sounding, very much a great companion to Smith's spacious trumpet and flugelhorn lines – in a group that also features Dwight Anderson on wooden flute, tenor, and clarinet, Pheeroan Ak Laff on drums, and Wes Brown on bass and a bit more wooden flute! The other two tracks on the session feature Smith's trumpet with a trio of harp players – Irene, Carol, and Ruth Emmanuel – all very interesting players on their instrument, using the strings in these carefully chromatic ways that are really wonderful – quite different than any sort of Dorothy Ashby vibe, but with a similar sense of spiritual energy. Titles include "Images", "The Burning Of Stones", "Spirit Catcher", and "The Burning Of Stones (first version)". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sahib ShihabCompanionship – Jazz Joint Vol 2 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Vogue/Rearward (Italy), Late 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Double-length brilliance from the mighty Sahib Shihab – a set that collects a number of killer 60s sessions with members of the Clarke Boland Big Band – all of them great! The small combo work here is amazing – hard-hitting modal jazz that matches, if not tops the best MPS/Saba sounds of the time – all produced to perfection with a really sharp edge, and a cutting approach to jazz that's gone onto inspired countless others in the current scene – including artists on Schema and Ricky-Tick Records, as well as most Japanese club jazz combos! But long before any of those cats started copping his groove, Sahib Shihab had it all totally together – a great ear for his own amazing solos on baritone and flute, and a way of hooking up with players like Francy Boland on piano, Fats Sadi on vibes, Benny Bailey on trumpet, Jimmy Woode on bass, and Kenny Clarke on drums. All players here were Shihab's partners in the Clarke Boland Big Band, and they use these small combo sessions to explore some great new ideas – stripped-down groovers that are heavy on rhythm, and really allow full expression from all the players involved. Titles include "Companionship", "Om Mani Padme Hum", "Bohemia After Dark", "Serenata", "Yah Yah Blues", "Balafon", "Talk Some Yak-ee Dak", "The Turk's Bolero", "CT + CB", "Jay Jay", "Stoned Ghosts", "Just Give Me Time", and "Dijdar".

✨✧ VariousIndustrial Accident – The Story of Wax Trax! Records (with 40 page book) ... LP
Wax Trax, 1980s/1990s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great little companion to the excellent film about the famous Wax Trax record store and record label – a set that brings together rare and unreleased material from some of the artists who made the company legendary back in the day! The album's the first in many years to bear the Wax Trax name – and it's like a great leap way backwards, past the darker later days of the label – to a time when the Chicago imprint was a wellspring of creative activity in the darker side of the spectrum – and a key link between our city and underground scenes around the globe. Titles include "Animal Nation" by Revolting Cocks, "Envoye" by Young Gods, "Me & My Ding Dong" by Pankow, "A Daisy Chain 4 Satan (acid & flowers mix)" and "Acid Xians" by My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult, "Leben Tod" by Laibach, "I Want More" by Fini Tribe, "Vogue (apart version)" by KMFDM, "Shipwreck" by Chris Connelly, and "Tonight We Murder (orig version)", "Cause We're In Love Again", and "Everyday Is Halloween (live)" by Ministry. LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes 40 page book.)
