✨✧ Electric Banana (The Pretty Things)Complete De Wolfe Sessions (Electric Banana/More Electric Banana/Even More Electric Banana/Hot Licks/Return Of The Electric Banana) (3CD set) ... CD
De Wolfe/Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 3CD ... Just Sold Out!
A fantastic legacy of music from the UK scene – even though it's a pretty darn secret one as well! The Electric Banana were a very unique studio group – a combo who featured Phil May and Dick Taylor of the Pretty Things, right at a time when that group were at the height of their fame – working as a faceless studio combo with other musicians for the DeWolfe Sound Library label – all to create these tight, short rock tracks that would later end up getting used in film soundtracks and TV programs all through the 70s! A surprising number of these tracks have vocals – a bit of a change from the usual sound library recordings of the period – and over the course of the five records in the box, there's a real sense of evolution – on that matches all the growth that the Pretty Things were going through too – although maybe not as trippy overall. The group also features John Povey on drums and Wally Waller on bass – and early work features arrangements from Reginald Tilsley, which drop away pretty quickly in favor of the core sound of the combo. 3CD set features five full albums, plus notes on all the music included – with titles that include "Do My Stuff", "Maze Song", "Alexander", "Street Girl", "Grey Skies", "Free Love", "Danger Signs", "Eagles Son", "The Loser", "Sweet Orphan Lady", "The Dark Theme", "Blow Your Midn", "Love Dance & Sing", and "A Thousand Ages From The Sun".

✨✧ Jacky GiordanoTiming Archives ... LP
De Wolfe/Farfalla (France), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $24.99
A great set of rare tracks recorded by French funk maestro Jacky Giordano – originally released as part of a series titled "Timings" for the De Wolfe Sound Library – but with a groove that's way deeper than that stiff titled might make you expect! The tracks are tight and rhythmic, but do way more than just time off a groove – as they're filled with lots of jazzy touches on trumpet, guitar, tenor, and flute – often with one or two electric elements in the mix, alongside some very strong percussion and drums at the core! Lots of these cuts feel like some of the best funk tracks from a 70s cop or crime soundtrack – nice and lean, never too slick – and titles include "Alti", "Nuts", "Jumba", "Tablasse", "Pink", "Plink", "Golden Blend", "La Gigue Bleue", "Orient Express", and "Cool".

✨✧ VariousStereo Ultra Vol 2 – A Collection Of French Music Library 1969 to 1973 ... CD
Sirocco (France), Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Lost funky jazz from France – lovingly packaged as the second volume in the excellent Stereo Ultra series! The set dips into the rich catalog of the Tele Music label – the French counterpart to some of the hip UK sound library labels, like De Wolfe or KPM, and home to some of the grooviest grooves that were never issued to the public at large. Plenty of funky keyboards, nice riffing guitars, and other odd instrumental twists – and essential stuff if you're into lost funky jazz. Tracks include "Gang Train", "Bass Session", "Rhythmiques No 3", "Purgatoire Mood", "African King", "Bahia Bossa Nova", "Yanko's Tune", "Mr. Buzz", and "Sun-Kissed Chicks". CD

Tracy NelsonDeep Are The Roots ... CD
Prestige/Wounded Bird, 1965. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
Very early work from singer Tracy Nelson – done years before her greater fame in the group Mother Earth, and with a folksy, stripped-down style that's mighty nice! The set's one of a handful of folk classics that Prestige Records issued in the 60s – material that's way hipper than some of the pop-folk albums on other labels (Terry Callier also made his debut in this series) – and featuring a presentation that really keeps Nelson far from any attempt to cross over big, even maybe to mainstream folk audiences of the time. Tracy mostly sings and plays guitar, but also plays a bit of piano too – and the album features contributions from Peter Wolfe on guitar, Charlie Musselwhite on harmonica, and Harvey Smith on piano. Samuel Charters produced the record, and most numbers are in an older folk blues mode – with titles that include "Starting For Chicago", "Motherless Child Blues", "Candy Man", "Rambling Man", "Trust No Man", "Black Cat Hoot Owl Blues", and "Jesus Met The Woman At The Well".

Riz OrtolaniI Guerrieri Dell'Anno 2072/La Casa Sperduta Nel Parco (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1981/1983. New Copy 2CD ... $22.99
Riz Ortolani is best known for his big scores of the 60s – but here, the maestro turns in two early 80s soundtracks – one sci-fi, one horror – both with a very distinct vibe! First up is I Guerrieri Dell'Anno 2072, a soundtrack that has some "future" elements in its use of 80s keyboards, but which also balances things with warmer currents – with a result that's almost like the way that the sound library scene was changing right at the start of the 80s – particularly in the way that KPM or DeWolfe were introducing electric elements amidst more familiar instrumentation. In other words, the set's not a straight keyboard/guitar score, as in the Goblin generation – but certainly nods to that shift. La Casa Sperduta Nel Parco is much more varied – a short score, but with tunes that move between disco groovers, to creepy lullabies, to some very dark-toned moments – all in a relatively short space! 2CD set features 23 tracks in all – including two bonus tracks from the 45rpm single for I Guerrieri Dell'Anno 2072.

VariousHillbillies In Hell – The Rapture – Country Music's Tormented Testament 1952 to 1974 ... CD
Omni (Australia), 1950s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
Great work from a series that never gets old – and which, if anything, seems to keep digging deeper and deeper with each new volume! If you know that, as the Louvin Brothers tell us, Satan Is Real – then you'll find plenty to spook your soul here – and we don't just mean the creepy cover! As with previous volumes, the tracks are a superbly-selected batch of songs from the farther reaches of country music – dealing with themes of temptation and salvation, awash with all the evils of mankind that weren't washed away in the pulpit! Titles include "Satan's Wife" by Jesse Floyd, "Turn Your Radio On" by The Statemen Quartet, "It's Nothing To Me" by Loy Clingman, "The Devil" by Ronnie Wolfe, "Satan's Suitcase" by Robert Zehm, "Devil Get Away From Me": by Roy & Georgia & The So & Sos, "Nightmare" by Jack Turner, Ghost Of A Honky Tonk Slave" by Cowbowy Howard Vokes, "On The Cross" by Margie Singleton, "Ghost Town" by Billy Massey, "Singing Shouting Praying" by Bill & Opal Carter with The Country Gents, "Fourth Man" by Reverend Tully McCoy, and "Please Devil" by Bobby Griggs.

✨✧ VariousMusax Background Music Library Vol 1 (with bonus download) ... LP
Musax/Farfalla (France), Late 70s. New Copy ... $29.99
A first-ever look at the tiny Musax sound library of the late 70s – a small company that only recorded a handful of records, but managed to create some great groovers that really competed with some of the bigger names of the time – like KPM or DeWolfe! This set brings together some of the best from Musax – tracks recorded in 1978 and 1979, mostly in a funky jazz mode – but with al these cool little twists and turns – such as scatting vocals on one cut, or cool processing on another – and a great ear for overall sound that makes all these selections feel like way more than just a few funky musicians getting together in the studio to knock off a quick cut. Speaking of musicians, we didn't recognize any of the names listed in the lineup – save for drummer Daniel Humair, and if he's in the mix, that's more than enough of a pedigree for the rest. Titles include "Liberia Land", "Peter", "My Wooden Cross", "Trois Caros", "Pictures Of My Soul", "Iceberg", "Marchaleco", "Ghost March", "Man Fly", and "Watery Stars". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousDiggin In The Crate – Special Sampling Vol 2 ... CD
Hi & Fly (France), Early 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
When these guys dig, they dig deep – so much so that they always come up with amazing tunes we've never even heard of before! This time around, the music is all sound library gems from the Standard Music company – a French company (despite the righteous African American-styled cover) started at the end of the 60s, and dedicated to some especially funky work that rivals, if not betters, sound library gems from companies like KPM or DeWolfe at the time! And while a few famous names worked for Standard – like Alan Parker, Tony Visconti, and Brian Eno – the work here is mostly by really obscure composers and artists, folks we've never heard of before, but who we're totally digging now! Lots of heavy drums, jazzy riffs, and an overall sound that's in the best early 70s funky soundtrack mode – or in the stone Dusty Fingers style – a treasure trove of 23 tracks that have already made our lives a heck of a lot brighter! Nearly all instrumentals, but with a few soul-based vocal tracks – and titles include "Viva" by Max Middleton, "Dad's Perengrinator" and "Good Articulation" by Midas Touch, "Your Dada Was A Good Cop" by Janette Mason, "Oats & Barley" by Threshold, "Bowl Of Soul" by Tom Watt, "Crushed Ice" by Zbigniew Gorny, "Whiskey Sour" by Janusz Poplaswki, "Bidin Times" by Max Middleton, "Forge Ahead Vocal" by Graham Lyons, "Foxy Lady" by Laurie Holloway, "Funky Soul Thing" by Ken Woodman, and "Planter's Punch" by Zbigniew Gorny.

✨✧ VariousLibrary Archive – Funk, Jazz, Beats & Soundtracks From The Vaults Of Cavendish Music ... LP
BBE (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Brilliant funky instrumentals from the UK Cavendish Sound Library – a company who could sometimes recorded more staid music, although that certainly wasn't the case with the gems on this collection! The music is by a handful of British studio talents of the time – most of whom come from the jazz scene in earlier years – and provide a great update of their earlier talents with some very sweet electric touches! Many of these tunes have some really great keyboards – Fender Rhodes or even moogier elements – and many also have wicked basslines next to the funky drums, which really make things kick throughout. These tunes are vastly undiscovered – at least in comparison to better-known sound library funk from companies like KPM or DeWolfe – but we'd put these grooves right up there with the best of that bunch too. Titles include "Night Shade", "The Rally", "Southbound", "Snowmobile", "Night Driver", "The Trackers", and "Lady Killers" by Dennis Farnon; "Milky Way" and "Star Voyage" by John Scott; "Two Bars" and "The Scape Goat" by Pete Moore; "The Big Score" by John Cacavas, "One Way Trip" by Sam Fonteyn, "Smile Of A Stranger" by Dominic Sands, "Riff Raff" by Geoff Bastow, "Come Cuban" by Edward White, and "Kaleidoscope" by Tony Kinsey.

✨✧ VariousLight Mellow Solar Records – Sound Of Los Angeles Records ... CD
Solar/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The sound's not entirely mellow – as LA's Solar Records was a label that was pretty dedicated to a groove – but the set does mix in some of the label's great midtempo cuts alongside its better-remembered groovers – all in a great summation of the sound and style that made the company a real powerhouse of west coast soul! The collection covers a good range of the label's strongest acts, and there's some nice surprises along the way, not just the Solar hits – as tracks include "Shine The Light" by Collage, "A Song For Donny" by The Whispers, "Call Me" by Bill Wolfer, "Charlie" by Carrie Lucas, "Two Occasions" by the Deele, "Computer Love" by Cat Miller, "Groovin" by Collage, "I Want To Love You Tonight" by Klymaxx, "Personality" by Dynasty, "Floating With The Tide" by Ralph Butler, "Come Back Lover Come Back" by The Sylvers, "Slow Jam" by Midnight Star, and "I Want To Hold Your Hand" by Lakeside.

Ben WolfeWhisperer ... CD
Posi tone, 2015. New Copy ... $11.99 17.98
Bassist Ben Wolfe's first record for Posi-Tone is as strong as any headline sets we've heard from him to date! Wolfe is leading an excellent quartet session here for the most part – with the always great Orrin Evans on piano, Donald Edwards on drums and Stacy Dillard on saxes – plus a sharp guest appearance by trumpeter Josh Evans on one track. With the exception nice, nocturnal reading Jerome Kern's "All The Things You Are", it's all Wolfe originals – led strongly by Wolfe's prominent, but never overbearing bass and brilliant rhythmic interplay with Evans and Edwards, with plenty of room for Dillard to shine. Includes "Heroist", "Hat In Hand", "Community", "Love Is Near", "Chronos", "All The Things Yo Are","STFU" with Josh Evans, "The Whisperer", "Becoming Brothers", "The Balcony", "Camelot's Lean'", "Hat In Hand"" and "If Only".

Shawn Lee's Ping Pong OrchestraMusic & Rhythm – Ubiquity Studio Sessions Vol 1 ... CD
Ubiquity, 2004. Used ... $2.99
Heavy funk from Shawn Lee – known best in recent years for his stunning production work, but really stepping out here as a funky artist in his own right! Shawn's been sneaking out some killer singles over the past few years, but this set's his first really full funky outing – a blistering array of tracks that pays tribute to the Sound Library sound of DeWolfe, KPM, and other classic labels from the 60s and 70s. Most tracks are short and thematic, with sweet funky elements that include electric sitar, fuzzed-up guitar, echoey percussion, snapping drum breaks, and burning organ and keyboard bits! The whole thing comes across extremely well – very very classic-sounding, without any gimmicks or tricks – just a cold, stone, simple batch of funk tracks, served up with perfect production! Titles include "Sexy Beast", "Bollywood", "Italian Stallion", "King Conga", "Drum Monkey", "Spytown", "El Duce", "Organ Grinder", "Scorpion", "Sammy's Theme", and "Boss Bossa". CD

✨✧ VariousBlow Up – Exclusive Blend 2 ... CD
Blow Up (UK), 1997. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Incredibly groovy – and a monster batch of sound library tunes! The set's the second in a series put together by the Brit Easy masterminds at the Blow Up offices – and it mines through further grooves from the KPM catalog, as well as other tracks from DeWolfe, Amphonic, and Sylvester imprints. The set's filled with smoking Hammond grooves, hard drums, fuzzy guitar, and loads of other wonderful instrumental touches – and the quality of the material is excellent, as these cuts were put together by some of the finest musicians working in the London studio scene! Musicians include Claudio Vasori, Keith Mansfield, James Clarke, and Alan Moorhouse – and tracks include the massive breakbeat classic "Soul Skimmer", plus "Lucky Seven", "Close Shave", "Underlay No 3", "New Project", "This Way Up", "Second Cut", and "Funky Fanfare".
