Sonny ClarkDial S For Sonny ... CD
Blue Note, 1957. Used ... $11.99
Could there be a more classic Blue Note session? From the cover, to the title, to the hardbopping grooves of the set, this Sonny Clark late 50s smoker is one of the label's best! Clark's working here at the height of his powers – leading an all-star group that includes Art Farmer on trumpet, Curtis Fuller on trombone, Hank Mobley on tenor, Wilbur Ware on bass, and Louis Hayes on drums – all coming together magically on open-ended tunes that tighten up from the blowing session format, and really send the groove home! Plus, Sonny's writing is also great – as the set's got a number of great originals by Clark – like "Bootin' It", "Sonny's Mood", "Shoutin On A Riff", and "Dial S For Sonny". Features a bonus stereo take of "Bootin It". CD

Savoy, 1958/1977. Used ... $6.99
A 70s collection of some of Coltrane's groundbreaking recordings for Savoy from the late 50s – recorded in the company of a super-hip sextet with Wilbur Harden on trumpet, and done in a way so that the tracks open up nice and long, in strong modal grooves that point the way towards Trane's later work in the 60s. The set features 5 long tracks issued in the 50s – "Anedac", "BJ1", "Once In A While", "Dial Africa", and "Oomba". CD

Bell, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $6.99
A totally excellent compilation of tracks released as 45s on Bell. While the selection of tracks is great, the best part of the whole thing is the cool cover, with a mock up telephone dial on the front cover that you spin to look at the artists and tracks! 11 great numbers in all, including "La-La Means I Love You" and "Break Your Promise" by the Delfonics, "I'll Be Sweeter Tomorrow (Than I Was Today)" by the O'Jays, "Back Up Train" by Al Green, "Shake A Tail Feather" and "Let Love Come Between Us" by James & Bobby Purify and "I Ain't Got To Love Nobody Else" by the Masqueraders.

✨✧ Howard McGheeTrumpet At Tempo – The Complete Dial Sessions 1946 to 1947 ... CD
Jazz Classics, 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The stuff of legend – some key early recordings from this famous trumpeter! Although Howard McGhee had a much harder road than some of the other early bop players – marred later by drug busts, failed "comeback" attempts, and other unfortunate twists – in the early days, he initially emerged as one of the movement's strongest players, especially on the west coast scene – as you'll hear on this set of early sides recorded for the legendary Dial label! The LP includes material recorded in both LA and New York – with other early boppers who include Teddy Edwards and James Moody on tenor, Hank Jones and Dodo Marmarosa on piano, and Roy Porter on drums – and titles include "Up In Dodo's Room", "Night Mist", "Coolerini", and "Thermodynamics".

✨✧ Horace TapscottDial B For Barbra ... CD
Nimbus, 1983. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great group recording from pianist Horace Tapscott – recorded in LA in the early 80s, but done with all the righteousness and spirituality of his earlier albums! Tracks are long and exploratory, but also relatively lyrical too – stretching out with a style that's never too "outside", and which has Horace and the group really soaring to the heavens on the best moments! The group here is a sextet – with the great Gary Bias on alto and soprano saxophone, plus Sabir Matteen on tenor, Reggie Bullen on trumpet, Roberto Miguel Miranda on bass, and Everett Brown on drums and percussion – all working with a cohesiveness that reminds us of some of Tapscott's larger group recordings, but with a cleaner, leaner kind of feel. Titles include "Lately's Solo", "Dial B For Barbara", and "Dem Folks". CD

Joe TexHe Who Is Without Funk Cast The First Stone ... CD
Dial/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $22.99
Joe Tex is definitely not without funk on this sweet little set – a smoking TK Records session that carries strongly from the vibe of his "I Gotcha" years! Longtime producer Buddy Killen is still on deck to keep everything tight and right – a mix of Joe's southern soul roots with some sharper elements of the 70s – served up here at a level that may well be one of the most perfect blends of all the great Joe Tex styles – even though the record itself has kind of a hokey title and cover (which seems to have a bunch of white folks, obviously "without funk", ready to throw stones at Tex!) Joe wrote all the lyrics himself, and the few mellow moments have a wonderfully heartbreaking quality. Titles include "Loose Caboose", "Finger Popped Myself Into The Poor House", "How Do You Spell Relief", and "Who Gave Birth To The Funk". CD
(Part of the Miami Sound – Original Soul/Funk/Disco Collection series!)

Marianne FaithfullCome & Stay With Me – The UK 45s 1964 to 1969 ... LP
Decca/Abkco, Late 60s. New Copy 2LP ... $36.99 38.99
A wealth of wonderful work from Marianne Faithfull, all pulled from those key early years when she was part of the musical world of Andrew Loog Oldham and the Rolling Stones! Yet right from the start, despite the fact that she sang a few Stones songs on her own (and wrote a few for the group, too) – Marianne was always very much her own singer, and had a way with a song that was quite different than most of the other UK girl pop artists of the time too! Faithfull sometimes has a trill, and always has a sense of darkness on these singles – almost in the territory of the young Nico, but more tuneful and less moody – and superbly set up in just the right sort of arrangements by Mike Leander, David Whitaker, and even the great Jack Nitzsche. 2LP set features all the a and b-sides of these early singles – 22 tracks that include "Morning Sun", "Sister Morphine", "As Tears Go By", "Summer Nights", "The Sha La La Song", "Something Better", "I'd Like To Dial Your Number", "Counting", "That's Right Baby", "Tomorrow's Calling", "This Little Bird", "What Have I Done Wrong", and "Go Away From My World".

✨✧ Wilbur Harden & John ColtraneComplete Savoy Sessions ... CD
Savoy, Late 50s. Used 2 CDs ... $18.99
Fantastic work from a lost chapter of Coltrane's career! Sure, you may know his early work with Miles Davis, or his groundbreaking later recordings on Atlantic and Impulse – but in the late 50s, 'Trane recorded some fantastic sides with trumpeter Wilbur Harden for Savoy Records, and the material is unlike anything he ever did for other labels. In a way, the Harden tunes are similar to Yusef Lateef's work for the label – hardbop at the core, but with touches of exoticism and spiritualism that brings out whole new modes of playing from the musicians. Most tracks are long and modal, a perfect platform for Coltrane's new ideas of soloing that were beginning to take shape at the time. Harden's a much different horn player than Miles Davis ever was – with a fiercer approach to rhythm that kind of drives Coltrane along in a more souful groove than ever before. This CD features 19 tracks from the Savoy Sessions – lovingly packaged in a way that really helps you navigate the confusing structure of the LP releases. Titles include "Gold Coast", "Dial Africa", "BJ", "Once In A While", "Tanganyika Strut", "West 42nd Street", and "Rhodamagnetics" – and the CD includes alternate versions of some tracks. CD

HeatwaveToo Hot To Handle ... CD
Epic, 1976. New Copy ... $4.99 6.99
A killer album of crossover soul from the mid 70s – one that dropped like a bomb when it hit, and gave this UK group a number of big hits in America! Keyboardist Rod Temperton wrote all the tracks on the album – and he's got keen talent for both funky numbers and ballads. If soul stations played album side specials the way that classic rock stations do, side one would be in heavy rotation – as it kicks off with the funky title cut, rolls into the hit "Boogie Nights", cuts to the sample classic "Ain't No Half Steppin" (forever made famous by Big Daddy Kane), and steps into the moody ballad "Always & Forever". It's hard to beat that lineup, but side two does a pretty good job – and includes a similar mix of titles like "Super Soul Sister", "All You Do Is Dial", and "Sho'nuff Must Be Love". CD

A wonderfully old school set from Pete Rock and Camp Lo – beats by the former, rhymes by the latter – and guest work from a host of talents who include Talib Kweli, Uncle Murda, MOP, Tyler Woods, and Mac Miller! The whole thing's got a great 90s hip hop vibe – Pete Rock very much at the top of that style he helped forge back in the day – and the MCs serving up the sorts of modes we used to love hearing from stations on the left end of the dial, late in the night! Nobody's trying to break any boundaries, but maybe that's what makes the record so great – with titles that include "You Never Seen A City Like This", "Love Traps", "80 Blocks From Tiffany's", "Glitter & Gold", "Dream Journey", "Pot A Butta", "Clean Getaway", and "Ladies & Gentlemen".

ReplacementsFor Sale – Live At Maxwell's 1986 ... LP
Rhino/Warner, 1986. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $28.99 29.98
It's been many years since The Replacements made their amazing music – but the genius of the group lives anew, thanks to the release of this tremendous live set from 1986! The group had moved from an indie label to Sire by the time of the show, but there's a searing intensity to most of the tracks that recalls their Twin/Tone material at its best – much more punkish than in the final years of the group – played with a deftness and speed that they didn't even have a few years before! In fact, if we were to find a way to describe the set, we might well call it the great lost album between Let It Be and Tim – as it combines all the best aspects of those sets, and has impeccable songwriting mixed with the raw edge that the group had at the start. The recording quality is wonderful – the set was captured at the legendary Maxwell's club in Hoboken, back when Hoboken was cool enough to have a scene – and titles include fantastic remakes of "Fox On The Run" and "Black Diamond" – plus "Tommy Gets His Tonsils Out", "Kiss Me On The Bus", "Hitchin A Ride", "If Only You Were Lonely", "Hold My Life", "I Will Dare", "Color Me Impressed", "Dose Of Thunder", "Bastards Of Young", "Baby Strange", "Take Me Down To The Hospital", "Left Of The Dial", "God Damn Job", "Answering Machine", "Gary's Got A Boner", "Waitress In The Ky", "Favorite Thing", and "Can't Hardly Wait".

Red Rodney & Ira SullivanSprint ... LP
Elektra, 1983. Near Mint- ... $2.99
A tremendous live performance from the group co-led by Red Rodney and Ira Sullivan – two players who really bring a lot to each other's music! There's a mode here that really blows us away – a careful, sensitive approach that allows each horn player to hit their most lyrical moments – shading things in with a far richer palette of sounds than we might ever have expected. The rest of the group's a big factor for the album's sound, though – as it features the great pianist Garry Dial, who also wrote some of the tunes – plus Jay Anderson on bass and Jeff Hirschfield on drums. Rodney plays trumpet and flugelhorn, and Sullivan plays flute, flugelhorn, alto, and soprano sax – on titles that include "How Do You Know", "As Time Goes By", "Sprint", "My Son The Minstrel", and "Speak Like A Child".

✨✧ Paul KellyHot Runnin Soul – The Singles 1965 to 1971 ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Wow! We really grew to love southern soul singer Paul Kelly's sweet run of records for Warners in the 70s, but heard scant few of his earlier 45s – recorded for Lloyd, Dial, Phillips and the Happy Tiger label from the mid 60s into the early 70 – it's wonderful stuff! Hot Runnin' Soul collects each of these singles cuts, which run from swaggery soul with anthemic chorus and bursts of brass, to smoldering soul balladry, to some early Motown styled numbers that break the southern mode bit. Kelly wrote most of the songs, with rawly emotional and completely impressive vocals. We had no idea how strong this earlier material from Kelly is – thanks to Kent UK for the reveal! Includes "Chills And Fever", "It's My Baby", "Since I Found You", "The Upset", "Can't Help It", "Sweet Sweet Lovin'", "Glad To Be Sad", 'Sailing", "Sailing", "Hot Runnin' Soul", "Poor But Proud", "My Love Is Growing Stronger", "The Day After Forever", "Hangin On In Here" and more.

A key history lesson for those who thought that pot culture in music only started with Cypress Hill – a weird sound play album originally issued by Elektra Records in the early 70s! The album's the brainchild of producer/director Ron Jacobs – who put the whole thing together with a feel that's almost like freeform FM radio from the left end of the dial at the time – little bits and sketches that are often satiric stabs at the mainstream, although delivered with a lot more wit than we'd expect from the average pothead! The whole thing's kind of like Free To Be You & Me for the stoner crowd – and titles include "Getting Hung-Up", "Creativity", "Funniness", "Physical Effects", "The History Of Marijuana", and "Eating Food".

RCA, Early 80s. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
A really nice batch of early 80s soul from Loose Ends – one of the best-remembered groups who were making strong soul music in Britain in the period – but who actually recorded this excellent first album at Philadelphia's Alpha Studios! Making the record in Philly was a wise decision – the sounds range from classic-level slow jams, to solid modern soul, to touches of electro – plus some more dancefloor-oriented groovers – coming across like work of deft scene veterans rather than a full length debut for the group! The songs were written by the band who, at that time, included Jane Eugene, Carl McIntosh and Steve Nichol – and titles include "Hangin On A String", "Choose Me", "Music Takes Me Higher", "Dial 999", "Tell Me What You Want", "A Little Spice", "So Much Love", and "Let's Rock".

Lonehill (Spain), Late 50s/Early 60s. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Although Tommy Flanagan recorded often in trio format in the later years of his life, he didn't always do so at the start – which is how this 2CD set is able to contain all Flanagan's trio recordings of the pre-1978 years! First up is the best known material of this nature – the album Overseas, originally recorded by the Metronome label in Stockholm, but is issued here in the US by Prestige – hence the Overseas title! Tommy Flanagan is in perfect form in this stellar session of trio recordings, playing with Elvin Jones on drums and Wilbur Little on bass, in a mode that's both lyrical and boppish. Titles include "Skal Brothers", "Verdandi", "Delarna", "Little Rock", "Eclypso", and "Beat's Up". Remaining tracks on the 2CD set are from a very wide variety of sources – the album Lonely Town, The Tommy Flanagan Trio album on Moodsville, and cuts from The Cats and Dial JJ albums that only feature a trio, plus a few other assorted dates from the early 60s. These other cuts combine to make the CD a 32-track extravaganza of Flanagan Trio material from the years 1957 through 1964 – with titles that include "So Sorry Pleae", "Love For Sale", "Tonight", "America", "It's Love", "Make Our Garden Grow", "Lucky To Be Me", and "Come Sunday".

Capitol, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A great lost chapter in the Cannonball/David Axelrod story! The record features Cannon's classic quintet performing some longer, more serious works with orchestral backing – and the sound is vaguely similar to some of Axelrod's "high concept" work for Capitol. The record features a recording of Axelrod's "Tensity" and William Fischer's "Experience In E", both conducted by Fischer, a hip modern soul-oriented arranger, with a sound that's not dissimilar to Axelrod. The last piece on the album is a nice long one by Lalo Schifrin, "Dialogues For Jazz Quintet & Orchestra", which is also conducted by him as well. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ ChordiallyChordially Presents Amen Brothers ... LP
Cordial (UK), 2019. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A contemporary soul set from the UK, but one that's got a very laidback vibe and a very mellow 70s sort of sound! The style is nicely easygoing – kind of slow funk on most tracks, which is perfect for the lead vocals and the way they trip along the tunes in a way that's relaxed, but never sleepy – with these inflections that are subtle, but powerful – maybe somewhere in a space between Larry Saunders on his few 70s recordings, and Al Green serving up a ballad on Hi Records! Instrumentation is great – keyboards and acoustic guitar, but used in ways that are really distinct from so many contemporary artists – a really fresh vibe, and a record that really stands out from the pack. Titles include "Atomic Soul", "Freshly Glazed", "Lucky", "Real Fake Diamonds", "Afro Flame", and "Lightning Doesn't Strike Twice". LP, Vinyl record album

Grand Prix/BTF (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99 29.99
The sound of industry, circa 1969 Italy – which means that everything sounds a heck of a lot groovier than you might expect! Soundtrack genius Alessandro Alessandroni handled the album – and it's completely fantastic right from the very first note – nothing like an industrial album, nor even some of the peppier "industry themed" sound library sets of the European postwar theme – and instead, the music is full of jazzy elements and cool wordless vocals – especially those scatting styles you'd know from Alessandroni's work with I Cantori Modern! Tremendous throughout – and quite possibly one of the grooviest albums the composer has ever given us. Titles include "Moto Blues", "Dialogando", "Circolazione", "Basso Regime", "Vie Motrici", "Escursione", and "Numero Uno". LP, Vinyl record album

Compelling work from Andreus – an underground Chicago singer with a very unique approach! Andreus is really trying for the "street" in the title of this one – blending a smoother NuSoul mode with some heavier and more political influences. The result is a mixture of R&B, hip hop, and some classic styles that help situate the album in a Chicago soul trajectory that stretches back to the early days of Curtom.

John BarryWhisperers ... CD
Ryko/United Artists, 1966. Used ... $4.99
John Barry did the score for this dark British film starring Dame Edith Evans as an elderly woman slowly succumbing to the "whispers" of old age. The music is far different than Barry's Bond work, with more of a sophisticated orchestral sound – filled with dark brooding passages, occasionally punctuated by jazzier moments. This deluxe edition features additional dialogue from the film, a nice booklet, and an enhanced CD-rom that includes a film clip! Titles include "Are You There?", "Sticks & Stones", "Nobody & Nothing", and "Three Attackers". CD

✨✧ Paul BleyWhen Will The Blues Leave ... CD
ECM (Germany), 1999. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A really special set from pianist Paul Bley – one that's maybe hinted at by the "blues" in the title, which is a word we never would have imagined on the cover of a record by Bley! The album features a performance recorded a few decades back by Swiss TV – a beautifully flowing trio date with Gary Peacock on bass and Paul Motian on drums – all players who are very familiar with each other, but who seem to find a special sort of intimacy here – this warmly mellow approach that still has some of the sharper corners of their modern roots, but which also resonates with a surprising current of soul at times. The performance is very open and spacious – allowing for special moments from each player – and titles include "Moor", "Longer", "Dialogue Amour", "When Will The Blues Leave", "Mazatlan", and "Flame".

Classic early album of electronic music that features some nice pieces by Walter Carlos – "Dialogues For Piano & 2 Loudspeakers" and "Variations For Flute & Electronic Sound" – both recorded in the years before he switched on Bach, and long before he changed to Wendy. Other works include "Le Tombeau D'Edgar Poe", based on a poem by Mellarme; "Vocalise" by Tzvi Avni, which features a Berio-esque juxtaposition of voice and electronics; and "Study No 1" by Andres Lewin-Richter, an attempt to achieve tonal instrumental qualities from electronic sources.

Varese, 1979. Used ... $19.99
An archetypal soundtrack for the 70s – one that reinvented the sound of horror for a whole new generation, thanks to some beautifully spare piano and synthesizer numbers from director John Carpenter! The main theme here should be enough – a sly little scary tune that really sets the scene – but other tracks are pretty great too, and feature lots more spare synth mixed with bits of dialogue from the film. Titles include "Halloween", "Laurie's Theme", "Meyer's House", "Michael Kills Judith", "Loomis & Shape's Car", and "Better Check The Kids". CD

A sexy little film, with a sexy little soundtrack to match – just the right blend of funk and crime modes you'd expect for a movie that was a precursor to Charlie's Angels! The Doll Squad were a lot trashier, though – and it really shows in some of the music here, which has a great early 70s exploitation vibe at times, and some surprisingly nice jazz currents at others – much more in the vein of some hip Italian work of the period, especially with the instrumentation. Most numbers are quite short, but the set features lots of these cool cuts coming together nicely, with a bit of dialog too – and the set includes the vocal number "Song For Sabrina" – plus "Jealous Lady", "Doll Squad Theme", "Big Boom", "Double Trouble", "The Big Switch", and "Freedom Beat".

A very groovy soundtrack to a very groovy movie – a near-lost 60s exploitation flick that's got it all – biker gangs, go-go girls, and lots of mod rocking numbers to really fit the scene! The album's got a fair bit of straight 60s rock numbers – the kind of offbeat tunes you'd hear on some of those excellent AIP soundtracks from the same time – with vocals from Larry Cartell, and a mix of modes that moves between upbeat go-go tracks and moodier blue-tinged numbers – blended both with some larger arrangements that are in a more familiar soundtrack style, done by Nicholas Carras – and a few bits of dialog from the film – which spices things up in a very cool way!

A long-overdue full length album from Family Of Swede – not a group from Stockholm, but a funky soul combo that worked in Oakland in the late 70s, but only ever managed to issue one single at the time! This set brings together a nice batch of unreleased music by the group – finally giving them a foothold in the legacy of Bay Area soul, and a chance to show off their great talent for both warm harmonies and more grooving rhythms – often done with a mode that's more east coast soul than some of their Cali contemporaries! We actually like the midtempo tracks here best – as the group seems to have a special sort of sparkle in that mode – gently stepping with a sense of warmth and sophistication that's totally top shelf, and which hardly sounds like work that has sat in the can for the past few decades. Titles include "Sad Lonely Feeling (70s version)", "Where Are You", "Living From Day To Day", "Life", "I Got To Move On", "Everybody Must Pay", "The Girl's Alright With Me", "Set You Free (short version)", and "When Tomorrow Comes".

Staffan HardeStaffan Harde ... CD
SJR/Corbett vs. Dempsey, 1971. New Copy Gatefold ... $12.99
One of the only recorded documents of the talents of Swedish guitarist Staffan Harde – a player who departed from the scene after the lack of critical response to this tremendous album! We're not sure why the record failed to make waves at the time – but it could well be because the whole thing is years ahead of its time – so bold in conception, and unique in ideas that Harde could never be easily pigeonholed in terms of sound or style! At one level, Harde's got a very chromatic approach to his instrument – often playing in ways that start with Jim Hall and move past Terje Rypdal – but often with phrasing that's very different than either – not as avant as Derek Bailey, with some of the vision of Ray Russell – but again, still very much his own man too. If we're throwing around big names, it's because we feel that Harde can stand with any of these inventive jazz giants – but in a space that's very much his own – working here ins hifting settings with Berngt Berger on drums, Lars Urban Helje on bass, and Lars Sjosten on piano. Titles include "Substance 1", "Bigaroon", "Incitement", "Electrification", and "Cordial L". CD

David HessLast House On The Left – Original 1972 Motion Picture Soundtrack (brown colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
One Way Static, 1972. New Copy ... $13.99
David Hess's chillingly great soundtrack to one of the most notorious horror movies of the 70s – Wes Craven's Last House On The Left! Hess's musical pedigree is that of a folk and rock songwriter – and one of the things that makes his songs for Last House On The Left so effective is the way his delicate, tuneful songcraft contrasts with the terrifyingly real sadism and revenge on screen. The other thing that makes it so effective, is that Hess himself portrays the despicable Krug in the film – taking part in said cruelty! The soundtrack has Hess's oddly lovely little songs, along with some incidental period touches, swatches of dialogue and instrumental bits – composed in collaboration with Steve Chapin. This version from One Way Static is totally top notch, too – with liner notes by exploitation cinema and genre veterans Ruggero Deodato, Franco Nero, Ulli Lommel and others. Includes "Little Cows Lookin' For Some Grass", "Baddie's Theme (Instrumental)", "Mari's Birthday Surprise", "Phyllis Spills Her Guts", "Now You're All Alone", "The Chase", "Daddy, Put Your Coat Of Many Colors On", "Mayhem Montage", "Ice Cream Song", "Urban Snatch", "Edude For Chainsaw/Goodbye, Dick" and more.

Michel LegrandLes Demoiselles De Rochefort (Young Girls of Rochefort) (French version) ... LP
Universal (France), 1966. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $29.99
One of our favorite soundtracks ever – a jazzy swinging ode to love found and love lost – all penned by the legendary Michel Legrand! The work was composed in collaboration with director Jacques Demy for his 1966 film of the same name – and, like the previous Demy/Legrand collaboration, Umbrellas Of Cherbourg, the movie's a story in song – one that has much of the dialogue presented as sung lyrics to the tunes. The mode takes off from a Hollywood musical style, and pushes the genre into territory that's much hipper, very French, and with a soaring approach that's filled with plenty of mod 60s jazz grooves. Legrand's genius has never sparkled so brightly – and his ability to interweave different themes, stories, and grooves is simply amazing! This double-length set presents the expanded original score – with many songs that were not on the original single version of the soundtrack, plus key bits of dialogue to help transition the tunes. Titles include "Chanson Des Jumelles", "Chanson De Delphine", "Nous Voyageons De Ville En Ville", "Chanson D'Andy", "La Femme Coupee En Morceaux", and "Marins Amis Amants Ou Maris".

Fantastic! This is the US release of the Michel Legrand score to Jaques Demy's incredible 1965 film The Umbrellas Of Cherbourg. Every word of dialogue in the film is sung, and Legrand came up with an amazing array of themes to carry the emotion of the film. Embedded in here are lines that later became worldwide hits – like "I Will Wait For You" and "Watch What Happens" – but in this version, the songs are just themes in the huge pastiche of dialogue and narrative, and they lurk behind the score in a beautiful way. This is one of our favorite all-time soundtracks, and this US version has a heavy cardboard gatefold sleeve, with a book in the middle that has lines from the film, and very nice pictures of Catherine Deneuve!

An incredible batch of prime garage rock era nuggets from the Peruvian scene – fuzzy gems by the Saicos! The Saicos bring a sense of menace to these tunes – with a guitar tone touched with an eerie vibe, and lead vocals that are really piercing and gravelly in that instills this primordial edge that needs to be heard to be believed – but that balance it off with some moddish, British invasion grooves, too. The overall sound manages to blend both the heavy menace of cult acts like the Monks and the Seeds with the tunefulness of the Animals – and clear precursor the garage punk for decades to come!

Ennio Morricone & OthersQuentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Decca/Third Man, 2015. New Copy 2LP ... $18.99 30.00
Director Quentin Tarantino has drawn plenty of inspiration from the music of Ennio Morricone over the years – either using short passages of older Morricone music in his films, or evoking the substance and style of the maestro in the way he uses sounds from other sources too! So it's only fitting that this time around, the pair are finally brought together fully – as Morricone turns out one of his best soundtracks in years for Tarantino's Hateful Eight – a brooding, suspenseful tale that owes plenty to the western generation that first sprung Morricone to global fame! Yet as with most of Ennio's best work, the style here is something that goes far beyond expectation – orchestrations that take on a style completely their own – with instrumental elements that have stronger focus amidst the larger charts, and a sense of mood and color here that's completely sublime. The record is mostly music from Morricone – written for the film – and features a few passages of dialogue from the movie, plus just a few additional tracks by The White Stripes, Roy Orbison, and David Hess. Yet it's more than fair to think of this as a complete score by Morricone – very different than the usual compilation-style soundtracks we've had before from Tarantino. LP, Vinyl record album

The backings are by a small combo, and really fit the mood well – and even though there's no dialogue between the tunes, the record really gives you a strong sense of Meg's presence on the club.

Blue Note/Wallen Bink (UK), 1968/1969/1970. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $48.99
One of the greatest albums ever from pianist Duke Pearson – recorded at a time when the musician was taking a bigger role at the Blue Note label, and started exploring some great musical territory in the process! The tracks here were all recorded in the late 60s – but not issued by the label until decades later, when they were pulled together in this fantastic double-length set – a record that comes as a real revelation. The work's quite different than Pearson's big band recordings, or his earlier soul jazz ones – and is a brilliant mix of Brazilian styles, electric instrumentation, complicated arrangements, and some of the more head-oriented jazz that was cropping up on Blue Note at the time – particularly some of the United States Of The Mind albums by Horace Silver! Silver's musical partner Andy Bey sings on the album's title cut – and other musicians include Frank Foster on tenor, Bobby Hutcherson on vibes, Wally Richardson on guitar, Jerry Dodgion on flute, Ralph Towner on acoustic guitar, and a young Airto on percussion. Titles include the fantastic "I Don't Care Who Knows It", a great version of "Canto De Ossanha", and the tracks "Bloos", "I Don't Know", "Captain Bacardi", "Rosemary's Baby", "Dialogo", "Upa Neguinho", and "Xibaba".

Side one features an extended version of Muhal Richard Abrams' "Richard's Tune", done with a trio that features electric bass by Jeff Berlin and drums by Steve Jordan – and side two features the even more beautiful Pullen original, "Dialogue Between Malcolm & Betty" – which adds in some great Latin percussion to the trio!

Rare tracks from Rikki Aaron – a Connecticut soul singer who's few singles on the market are already pretty darn rare! Rikki worked in the early 80s, but has a style that's often more like sweet soul from the decade before – at least on the ballads, which have this really heartbreaking quality that comes partly from his slightly-fragile vocals, and partly from the instrumentation – which can have some nice slow funk currents. Speaking of funk, there's also some more upbeat numbers that echo with warmly jazzy elements, but without ever sounding slick – and on many numbers, Rikki's vocals get support from Stanly Odonnell, who's his frequent partner in recording. The set features alternate mixes of his rare single cuts "For The Love Of Music" and "Say What's On Your Mind" – plus titles that include "Save The World (part 1)", "Think Fast", "Brighter Day", "The Dream", "I'm A Young Man", "Gigi", "Hey Girl", and "Will You".

Totally excellent – and probably the best of the Planet Of The Apes soundtracks! The record features lots of snippets of dialogue from the film – including Cornelius telling the creed of the fate of man, General Ursus addressing Ape City, and the chilling Mass Of The Holy Bomb. The main score has some great work by Leonard Roseman, in kind of an off-kilter style with lots of atonal string passages – but it also features a few tasty funky cuts. The best of these is the "March Of The Apes", a great little funky 70s soundtrack number, and there's also a weird funky passage at the end of the "mass", with voices chanting in a hippy dippy kind of way! A great relic of a wild weird film, and one we don't see often! LP, Vinyl record album

School DaysIn Our Times ... CD
Okka Disk, 2002. New Copy ... $9.99
A fantastic slice of dialogue between the important millennial Chicago and Swedish avant garde scenes! The School Days quartet is further augmented by another member this go 'round, Kjell Nordeson on vibes, as they continue to explore themes inspired by and written by modernists of a different period in improvised music, like Bobby Hutcherson, Bill Evans, and Larry Young – a great example of the inspirations that move the genius of group leader, reedman Ken Vandermark. Kjell can be heard elsewhere as the drummer for Mats Gustafson's AALY trio, and is joined by his bandmate from that group here on bass, Ingebrit Haker-Flaten, with another Swede, Paal Nilssen Love on drums, while Chicagoan Ken Vandermark is joined by one of our city's other hidden gems on the frontline, Jeb Bishop on trombone. Recorded live in Norway, titles include "Shift", "Octopus", "Loose Blues" and "Another Double". CD

Thaione DavisApril January ... CD
Enviromentally Sound, 2003. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A sweet little groover of an instrumentals set from Chicago's Thaione Davis. April January is a mellow, trippy, sampledelic platter of soundscapes from start to finish, cut with some nice dialogue samples that set the cool, cool vibe very nicely. All told, it's a jazzy, beat-thumping set with a bit of a filmic vibe. Nice! 18 tracks in all, including ""Winter Springs", "Prelude", "Afternoon In Greece", "29 February", "The Verve", "Careless", "Paper Mache" and more! CD

Melvin Van PeeblesSweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song ... LP
Stax, 1971. Sealed Gatefold ... $11.99
One of the most fantastic soundtracks of the 70s – and maybe even of all time – thanks to a non-stop blast of insane styles and grooves – all quite different than other blacksploitation records of the time! For this, his masterpiece film, Melvin Van Peebles composed a non-stop collage of crazy sounds and funky jams, played by himself and a very young Earth, Wind, & Fire – then pasted together in a pastiche of music, dialogue, and sound effects that serve as an audio document of the film! If you've ever seen the movie – and even if you haven't – you'll find that the soundtrack works as a 40 minute version of the film, shifting back and forth with a loose narrative progression. Of course, the real appeal is the funky music – and you'll hear more than enough of that on tracks like "Sweetback's Theme", "Hoppin John", "Come On Fee", and "Sweetback Getting it Uptight".

Bizarre/Reprise, 1971. Very Good ... $9.99
Frank Zappa & The Mothers, live at the Fillmore East – showing the world they've got plenty of greatness to offer away from the studio! The band here is super-tight – with the ferocity of Chunga's Revenge, but still enough room between the jamming for some mad bits of dialog and vocals – which are then offset by great keyboards and saxes from Ian Underwood, electronics from Don Preston, and heavy drums from Aynsley Dunbar! There's a focus to the sound of the group here that really draws together all the strands from the previous few years – and titles include "The Mud Shark", "What Kind Of Girl Do You Think We Are", "Willie The Pimp", "Happy Together", "Lonesome Electric Turkey", and "Tears Began To Fall".

✨✧ VariousRaks Raks Raks – 17 Golden Garage Psych Nuggets From The Iranian 60s Scene ... LP
Raks/Everland (Austria), 1960s. New Copy (reissue)... About September 20, 2020
Iranian garage rock – kind of hard to believe at first, but a surprising musical discovery overall! The package documents a very overlooked scene – rock bands from late 60s Iran who were clearly inspired by the American underground of the time – working in a heady brew of guitar, organ, bass, and drums – usually with vocals in the local dialect, but a rockish groove that owes plenty to the US. There's less Eastern elements in the music than you'd find in Arabesk rock from Turkey – although some tunes here do have an exotic flavor at points, and really stand out from the rest. Yet even on the straighter numbers, the difference in language really gives these tunes an odd sort of feel – almost unsettling as you try to reach for familiar elements, then find them different in the end. Titles include "Mehtaab" by The Littles, "Shekar Dar Kohestan" by The Golden Ring, "Hadjime Khali" by Kourosh, "Raks Raks Raks" by Moha Jamin, "Meekshi Manoo" by The Flowers, "Dance Music" by Penahi, and "4 x 8 Jadeed" by The Littles.

Original versions of numbers that really take us back are interspersed with dialogue lifted from the show, great for sampling, scratching or just plain listening and enjoying!

Righteous (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Blast off into space with The Cramps – with plenty of firepower here in a collection of unusual space-themed and space-sounding tunes from the glory days of the postwar recording industry! Some of the tunes have the raw, raunchy vibe of other material in this great series of Lux & Ivy compilations on Righteous – but others have maybe a moodier, spacier feel – as the work is pulled from a variety of sources that include modern jazz, avant electronics, exotica records, and some great space age pop releases! There's occasional snippets of dialogue from old sci fi films, which helps link the tunes – and titles include "Deep Night" by Frank Comstock, "Skin Tight" by Basil Kirchin, "Perpetual Motion" by Moondog, "Winds Of Sirius" by Les Baxter, "Waltz In Orbit" by Ray Cathode, "Astronic" by Jimmie Kaskell, "Robot Man" by Jamie Horton, "Ghost Satellite" by Bob & Jerry, "The Moon" by Ron Goodwin, "Full Moon" by Eden Ahbez, "Shock Treatment" by The Invaders, and "Ignition" by Tom Dissevelt.

VariousWild Wild World Of Mondo Movies Music ... CD
Big Beat (UK), 1960s. Used ... $9.99
A totally cool little compilation – kind of the sonic equivalent of a night at the drive-in movies! The package digs through some really raunchy exploitation rock of the 60s – gritty garage tracks, freaky exotic numbers, and other rough-edged gems – then mixes the music with rare horror film trailers and movie dialogue from the time – creating a combination that's totally out of this world! There's a creepy feel to the whole thing – an edgey sensibility that goes way beyond the novelty mode you might expect – and which really gets at the eerie undercurrent that lingered in the farther reaches of film production during these glory days. The collection was first cooked up two decades ago, but it's just as powerful today – a must for any fan of the Norton, Kicks, Svengoolie, or Roctober side of the spectrum! Titles include "Shook Out Of Shape" by Carol Kay & The Stone Tones, "You Is A Rat Pfink" by Ron Haydock & The Boppers, "Twist Fever" by Arch Hall & The Archers, "The Lemon Grove Kids" by Don Snyder & Pee Wee Flyn, "The Bird's The Word" by Rocky Roberts & The Airedales, "She Devils Instrumental" by R Lewis Band, and lots more great stuff – including trailers from Girls From SIN, Maniacs Are Loose, Thrill Killers, Strange Rampage, Hypnovista, and lots more weird movies!

The soundtrack features some incredibly subdued work from Blood Sweat & Tears – playing in a laidback and jazzy mode that's like the best of Quincy Jones or Dave Grusin electric soundtrack of the time! The album also features some dialogue that comes in and out of the mix – which you can overlook – but the film's theme is more than enough reason to grab this one!

✨✧ Rudy Ray MooreI Can't Believe I Ate The Whole Thing ... CD
Kent/Dolemite, Mid 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The title's a reference to a famous antacid commercial in the early 70s – but from the cover, it's obvious that Rudy Ray Moore wants you to think of it in a much nastier way! Given the sounds on the wax, it's easy to do – as the set's one of Moore's best from a time when he was the king of the party record – able to tell dirtier jokes than even most comics in the club – with very upfront, sexual-heavy dialogue – backed by some tightly soulful instrumentation! The music makes the whole thing groove nicely, even though it's a bit more buried in the mix than on some of Rudy's other records – which leaves the man himself screaming it strongly out front. A few tracks have guest vocals by Lady Reed – and titles include "That's My Watch", "The Marines", "Hit Her With A Rock Long D*ck", "As Much Ass", "Everybody Kneelin Ain't Prayin", "Sell It Girls", and "Dangerous Dan".

Ubiquity/Luv N' Haight, 1970s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Funky funky California – and a great set of rare grooves from the 70s! The folks at Luv N Haight records are up to their old tricks – digging through the crates for the kind of hard-to-find funky tracks that first gave birth to the fame of the Ubiquity label. The set traces a sound that barely shows up in the history books – the harder funky sound of California in the 70s, a scene that was mostly underground, and which stood in stark contrast to the smoother sounds coming out on major labels at the time. A few of the artists on the set might be familiar through other Luv N Haight reissues, and there's others here that we've never heard at all – grooving in hard and heavy styles that spread across the Sunshine State from East LA to Funky Frisco to Oaktown – a total of 14 tracks that include "Freaky To You" by Sweet Stuff, "Losing You" by Cordial, "Love & Affection" by Ike White, "Freedom Time" by Linda Tillery, "Patience" by Rokk, "Party Time" by Roy Porter, "Carnaval" by Oquesta Esencia, "Wobble Cha" by Cool Benny, "Feelin Alright" by West Coast Revival, "Where Do We Go From Here" by Cool Sounds, "Hang On In There" by Mike James Kirkland, "Daydreamer" by Adele Sebastian, and "A Real Thing" by Sons & Daughters Of Life.

The Beatles live at the BBC – heard here in a host of rare recordings that were done between March 1962 and June 1965 – pulled from the vaults of the legendary radio station, and with a few cool dialogue bits too! The versions here were all played live on the air, and make for some much-needed alternate takes on the big hits by the Fab Four – and a few American numbers that really show the influence of other styles on their early sound. And since the recordings were done in a top-shelf studio, they're not muddy concert recordings – but actually feel more like some lost EMI studio material from the same period. 71 titles in all – including "Nothin Shakin", "The Hippy Hippy Shake", "Glad All Over", "Rock & Roll Music", "Ticket To Ride", "Ooh My Soul", "Don't Ever Change", "Slow Down", "Matchbox", "I Forgot To Remember To Forget", "The Honeymoon Song", "Lucille", "Can't Buy Me Love", "Taste Of Honey", "From Us To You", "I Got A Woman", "I'll Be On My Way", "Shot Of Rhythm & Blues", "Some Other Guy", "Soldier Of Love", and "Clarabella".

✨✧ Millie JacksonCaught Up ... CD
Southbound/Ace (UK), 1974. Used ... Out Of Stock
Seminal 70s southern soul from Millie Jackson – a record that's head and shoulders above most of what she recorded in later years! Before she got all naughty and raunchy, Millie Jackson was one of the best female soul singers to come out of the south – and this album's a work of understated brilliance that brings a new level of emotion and feeling to the music. The whole thing's conceived as a bit of a concept album – one in which Millie's a bit fragile at the start, due to unfulfilled love – then regains her confidence by confronting those around her, and eventually steps forth boldly as a proud, new woman. Jackson put together the record with producer Brad Shapiro – and the overall style is Muscle Shoals, but with a more sophisticated twist – thanks to inventive use of strings alongside the more standard soul rhythms. Highlights include a great remake of "If Loving You Is Wrong, I Don't Want To Be Right" (complete with a nice bit of spoken dialogue!) – plus "I'm Through Trying To Prove My Love To You", "It's Easy Going", "I'm Tired Of Hiding", "Summer (The First Time)", and the great "It's All Over But The Shouting".

Sony (France), 1965. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
One of the most wonderful soundtracks ever! Michel Legrand wrote the jazzy groovy score for this legendary French film from the mid 60s – and every word of dialogue in the film is sung throughout, making for a very cool, ever-changing array of vocal bits and jazzy styles. Embedded in here are lines that later became worldwide hits – like "I Will Wait For You" and "Watch What Happens" – but in this version, the songs are just themes in the huge pastiche of dialogue and narrative, and they lurk behind the score in a beautiful way. This is one of our favorite all-time soundtracks, and this wonderful import version features the entire thing, end to end, on 2CDs – as well as 6 bonus tracks that feature other versions of the themes and songs, done instrumentally or vocally by other artists. Fantastique! CD

One of the highlights is as speech in which the platform of the Black Panther party is enumerated, with its 10 point program.

The strongest album to date from Chicago saxophonist Nick Mazzarella – a trio set that has the leader's alto blazing out in brilliantly soulful spirit, alongside robust bass from Anton Hatwich and magical drums from Frank Rosaly! The group have a cohesion that we might not have expected from the players a handful of years before – a sense of unity that's extremely dramatic, and which grabs our ears right from the start of the record – insisting that we listen with rapt attention, almost as if they're announcing the set as a new classic in jazz. All compositions are by Mazzarella, and although there's a lot of freedom in the playing, there's also an adhesion to his musical vision too – that wonderful balance of structure and openness that can really separate a record like this from the rest of the pack. Titles include "Neutron Star", "Luminous Dials", "Ultraviolet", "Fossil", and "Outlier". CD

✨✧ David PorterVictim Of The Joke? (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Enterprise/Craft, 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Probably the best-remembered solo album from David Porter – one half of the famous Hayes/Porter team that ruled Stax Records in the 60s, although not as successful as an artist on his own as Isaac Hayes! Porter's style is a lot more adventurous – and this album's a wonderful illustration of that fact – an offbeat mix of dialogue, sound effects, and straighter soul vocals – put together as kind of a "suite", with a really unified feel. Like Hayes' baroque symphonies in soul, David's obviously trying to stretch past shorter song forms – and we really love his creative chances on the record. Titles include the legendary "I'm Afraid The Masquerade Is Over" – which has been sampled many times over the years – plus the tracks "Human", "Pretty Inside", "Storm In the Summertime", "When You Have To Sneak", and "If I Give It Up I Want It Back". LP, Vinyl record album
