Emi MakabeAnniversary ... CD
Greenleaf, 2020. Used ... $6.99
A vocal jazz session, but one with a very different flavor than usual – given that Emi Makabe plays the Japanese stringed instrument shamisen, and also sings most of the lyrics in Japanese! The rest of the group is unusual, too – as the quartet features Victor Goncalves alternating between piano and accordion, and Kenny Wollesen alternating between drums and vibes – mixed with the bass of Thomas Morgan, in a way that creates a wonderfully fluid sense of tone and color throughout the set. Titles include "Joy", "Moon & I", "Mielcke", "Rino", "I Saw The Light", "Flash", and "Treeing". CD

✨✧ VariousSprigs Of Time – 78s From The EMI Archive ... LP
Honest Jons (UK), New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A collection of tracks that amount to some of incredibly deep audio archaeology – a wonderful, consciousness wakening collection of globe spanning 78s from the first half of the 20th Century – all from the darkest corners of the EMI Vaults! Honest Jons does an impressive job of collecting recordings that are first and foremost exciting pieces of music – and they reportedly spent a couple of years going through thousands and thousands of 78s and to put this thing together. It was worth the effort! The album includes recordings from China in the 10s, Bali and London in the 20s, Constantinople, Kenya and Spain in the 30s, Uganda & Trinidad in the 50s, and much more from each decade in many parts of the world. Cuban rumbas, Middle Eastern & African string tunes, more pop oriented British tunes, vocal and pop with a global focus. Wonderful stuff! Titles include "The English Sound Table" by GU Hsu, "Lagu Kebiar" by Gamelan Gong, "Rumba Negra" by Sacasas, "Laughing" by Vemngopal Chari, "Different Kind Of Motor Car Noises" by Vengopal Chari, "The Queen's Canary" by Mighty Sparrow and more.

Leny AndradeEstamos Ai ... CD
Odeon/EMI (France), 1965. Used ... $14.99
Beautiful bossa – and one of Leny Andrade's best albums! The record was recorded way back in 1965, when Leny was starting her career, years before she went onto become one of Brazil's most famous jazz singers. She's working here with Deodato, who did a beautiful set of jazzy arrangements that work perfectly with Leny's rich voice – warm and airy, with a sweetly skipping quality throughout! The whole thing's really jazzy and wonderful – without any of the heavier styles of Leny's later work – and titles include "Tema Feliz", "Samba De Rei", "A Resposta", "Banzo", "Cliche", "Samba Em Paris", and "Coisa Nuvem".

ApostlesBlack Is Beautiful (180 gram pressing) ... LP
EMI/Tidal Waves, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99
A tight little set from one of the grooviest groups on the Nigerian scene of the 70s – a combo who could play with a familiar mix of fuzz and funk, but also throw in some deeper soul touches on the vocals – in a way that makes the whole album a much richer set than work by some of their contemporaries! Some of the songs are heavy on message – both personal and political – and the rhythms have these complicated basslines that really keep things interesting, and which keep The Apostles from sounding too much like anyone else – almost a cross-cultural take on West African rhythms, on titles that include "I'm Sorry I Made You Cry", "Black Is Beautiful", "Don't Huzzle For Love", "Enyim", "Please Yourself", "Ndi Nkwa", and "Today Is The Tomorrow".

Milton Banana TrioBalancando ... CD
EMI/Odeon (Japan), 1966. New Copy ... $13.99
A fantastically hard bossa nova jam led by the legendary Milton Banana – a man not only known as Joao Gilberto's favorite drummer, but also as one of the architects of bossa nova drumming and percussion! The album is full of non-stop drums and piano grooves, and it's a mostly uptempo treat all the way through. Milton B tipples his way across the tops of the drums in an amazingly light fashion, yet still manages to kick on the rhythm all the way through. The hard piano sound and Milton B's beats and rhythms made this album a legend – and really cleared the way for so many great bossa albums to come. Amazing! 12 tracks including "Aruanda", "Ora Bolas", "Encanto Triste", and "Improviso", "A Resposta", "A Resposta". CD

✨✧ Milton Banana TrioMilton Banana Trio (1965) ... CD
EMI/Odeon (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... $13.99
Sublime bossa jazz from one of the greatest combos on the Brazilian scene of the 60s – the crackling trio led by drummer Milton Banana, a really tremendous player no matter what the setting! The album bristles with energy from the very first note – virtually a blueprint for the sound of bossa piano in the 60s, with some great acoustic work here from Walter Wanderley on piano, and basslines that have a quick-spirited sense of timing to match Milton's drums. Tracks are all short and very tight, with a great sense of jazz – leaping along the grooves with titles that include "Samblues", "Noa Noa", "Primavera", "Samba De Verao", "Primitivo", and "Sambou, Sambou".

BangalafumengaVira Lata ... CD
Cardume/EMI (Brazil), 2004. Used ... $11.99
One of the most striking recent Brazilian albums we've heard in years – a 6 track ep from a group with a really tremendous sound! The approach is spare and stripped down – heavy percussion with rocking and funky guitars – sometimes influenced by American rhythms, but often sharing an undercurrent that links the record with earlier Brazilian percussive traditions. There's a few nicely funky tracks on the set that recall the sound of the Brazilian funk underground a few years back, and all tracks have vocals – often recorded with an earthy tone that sets them apart from the instrumentation nicely. Titles include "Maracatu Embolado", "Baile Da Pesada", "Pare", "Ciranda Nova", and "Baile Funk". CD

Jane BirkinArabesque ... CD
EMI (France), 2003. Used ... $7.99
One of the greatest albums we've heard from Jane Birkin in years – a haunting set that revisits older classics, with a whole new sound! Jane's working here with titles written by longtime partner Serge Gainsbourg – classics like "Valse De Melody", "Elisa", "Couleur Cafe", "La Javanaise", and "Les Dessous Chics". But instead of just re-recording them, she's re-pitched all the titles to have a very strong Middle Eastern feel – working with Arabic musicians to take the original tracks by Serge, and flesh them out with an even more haunting and otherworldly feel. Really great stuff – and proof that Jane's still growing tremendously as an artist! CD

EMI, 1983. Very Good+ ... $34.99
A mega-hit for David Bowie – and an album that reduced some of the complexity of previous efforts, yet still managed to hold onto all that was great! There's definitely some massive chart material here, but the tunes are still some of the best of their time, pop-wise – tracks that bring forward the best dark corners of the Bowie mythos, and refine them slightly for a new generation – always in tunefully compelling ways. And despite the crossover fame of the set, it holds up surprisingly well over the years – possibly because of that status. Titles include "Modern Love", "China Girl", "Let's Dance", "Without You", "Criminal World", and "Cat People" (in a different take than the soundtrack version.) LP, Vinyl record album

CCSCCS – A's, B's & Rarities ... CD
EMI/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), Early 70s. New Copy ... $12.99 13.99
Brilliant work from CCS – a jazz-rock big band led by UK blues rocker Alexis Korner, arranged by Brit easy maestro John Cameron, and produced to full strength by the legendary Mickie Most! The group had a sound that was really great – with lots of fuzzy guitars up front in the mix, supported by a larger, fuller blend of horns, funky bass, and drums. The sound was a more rock-based take on styles that had been showing up on late 60s soundtracks and 70s sound library albums – but which is served up here with a more straightforward punch that makes for plenty of guitar-based funky moments. A few tracks get a bit bluesier – in keeping with Korner's heritage – but the whole set grooves pretty darn nicely, and features 2 previously unreleased numbers! Titles include "Whole Lotta Love", "Boom Boom", "Salome", "Tap Turns On The Water", "The Band Played The Boogie", "Hang It On Me", "I Want You Back", "If I Never Sing Another Song", and "Primitive Love".

Cornelius Brothers & Sister Rose were one of a handful of early 70s groups – like Chairmen Of The Board or 100 Proof Aged In Soul – who had a sound that was incredibly hard to peg. There were bits of southern rawness in the vocals, but the overall approach also had plenty of elements of smoother Northern Soul, and wasn't afraid to use strings or uptown arrangements when they were needed! Titles include "Treat Her Like A Lady", plus "Let Me Down Easy", "Since I Found My Baby", "Big Time Lover", "Got To Testify", "I'm Never Gonna Be Alone Anymore", "Don't Ever Be Lonely", and "Good Lovin Don't Come Easy". 12 tracks in all!

✨✧ Cosmic Eye (Amancio D'Silva)Dream Sequence (180 gram pressing) ... LP
EMI/Roundtable (Australia), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $34.99 40.99
The most mindblowing work we've ever heard from guitarist Amancio D'Silva – a really freewheeling blend of jazz and Indian music, and a set that goes far beyond most of his other albums! The album definitely lives up to the dream sequence promised by the title – as it features one long track that spins out in a beautiful blend of tablas, sitar, flute, percussion, violin, and Amancio's own great electric guitar! The leader crafts these trippy solos that are a bit like the work of Gabor Szabo, but even more open-ended and exotic – and the group also features some great work on sax from Alan Branscombe, plus violin from John Mayer – who'd worked on previous experiments of this nature with Joe Harriott. Despite the length of the track, the record is never over-indulgent or repetitive at all – as D'Silva constantly shifts the mood and the sounds – creating this wonderful interplay that really makes for a scenic richness throughout – an evocative journey in music that holds us completely rapt all the way through.

The sound here is sophisticated without being sleepy, and there's still a lightness to Djavan's music at this point – a style that manages to plumb the depths of his vocals, yet without some of the too-emotive moments of later work – a very careful balance that makes for an album that's lovely and delightful all the way through! The set includes loads of nice tracks – like the jazzy "Serrado", plus "Minha Mae", "Numa Esquina De Hanoi", "Alagoas", "Samba Dobrado", and "Dupla Traico". LP, Vinyl record album

Joao DonatoQuem e Quem ... CD
EMI (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $13.99
A gem of a record – one we wouldn't part with for anything! Joao Donato's best known as one of the founding fathers of bossa nova – better known for his 60s work over the years, than he was for 70s electric work like this. Fortunately, international groove hounds picked up on the record years back, and it's been firmly brought back into the limelight as the classic it truly is! The set's an incredible reworking of Donato's sound – the gentle jazzy phrasing of the bossa years turned towards mellow groovers that feature a heck of a lot of electric piano. The album's got a few classic funky tracks, and some even more wonderful tracks that feature Joao working sparely on Fender Rhodes – accompanying himself on raspy vocals on most of the cuts! The whole thing's great – and titles include "Nana Das Aquas", "A Ra", "Amazonas", "Mentiras", "Cala Boca Menino", "Cade Jodel", "Me Deixa", and "Ate Quem Sabe". CD

The style here mixes together swinging jazz with other elements of Brazilian rhythms – percussion grooving with piano, accordion, and some very nice work on clarinet – jazzy and swinging, but with some earthier touches in the rhythms too. The style is at once rootsy and modern, in that unique blend of styles that Brazilian groups seemed to virtually invent! A great look at Donato's pre-bossa career – with titles that include "Baiao", "Peguei Um Ita No Norte", "Baiao Da Garoa", and "Comigo E Assim". CD

Sweet 70s grooving from Brazilian singer Eva – a bit of soul, a bit of easy, all styled together nicely by orchestrations from the magical maestro Gaya! Gaya's work here is similar to his best backings for other artists in the Blue Brazil generation – a mix of American pop, post-bossa instrumentation, and in this case, some very slight electric touches – kind of hipping up the tunes a bit with some nice keyboards! The album's got a really nice version of "Moon River" that skips along at a nice pace – plus some great originals that offer a strong update to the sound of other Brazilian pop/post-bossa singers, like Doris Monteiro or Claudette Soares. Titles include "O Homem Do Tempo", "Vinte Leguas", "Na Baixa Do Sapateiro", "Olha Eu Aqui Oh Oh Oh", "Talisma", and Sonho Lindo". CD

Bert JanschRare Conundrum (with bonus tracks) ... CD
EMI/Virgin (UK), 1977. New Copy ... $8.99 11.99
A great late 70s set from Bert Jansch – a set that's maybe a bit of a return to his roots, but which also really marks Jansch as a much stronger vocalist than he ever was in the early days! There's this confidence and maturity to the lyrics that's really great – Bert inflecting things with that voice that must have been one of the most unusual on the UK scene, even in the smaller folk rock world of his roots – and although the instrumentation is relatively lean, the tunes have a fullness and gentle sort of majesty that's very different than 60s Jansch in a similar mode. The whole thing's wonderful – maybe a bit overlooked in the year when punk was exploding – but proof that some of the more timeless artists of the generation were still turning out impeccable work. Titles include "Daybreak", "One To A Hundred", "Pretty Saro", "Doctor, Doctor", "3AM", "St Fiacre", "If You See My Love", "Poor Mouth", "Cat & Mouse", "Three Chord Trick", and "Lost Love".

EMI/Virgin (UK), 1975. Used ... $7.99
A real shift in modes for the legendary Bert Jansch – as you might guess from the sunny Santa Barbara on the cover – which is a long way from the rainy roots of Bert's music in the UK! Jansch steps out here as maybe more of a singer than before, but still gets in plenty of his amazing work on guitar – on tunes that show a more confident approach, but one that's never too slick, nor commercial. This is hardly folk-into-AOR – and instead just uses the right sort of Cali touches to augment the genius of Jansch, without getting in his way at all – at a level that also has Bert really sounding wonderful on vocals. Titles include "Love Anew", "Mary And Joseph", "Be My Friend", "You Are My Sunshine", "Lost And Gone", "When The Teardrop Fell", "Build Another Band", "Dynamite", and "Buckrabbit" and more. CD includes 6 bonus tracks – an alternate version of "Build Another Band", plus 5 tracks live from Montreux in 1975. CD

EMI/Virgin (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $11.99
A real shift in modes for the legendary Bert Jansch – as you might guess from the sunny Santa Barbara on the cover – which is a long way from the rainy roots of Bert's music in the UK! Jansch steps out here as maybe more of a singer than before, but still gets in plenty of his amazing work on guitar – on tunes that show a more confident approach, but one that's never too slick, nor commercial. This is hardly folk-into-AOR – and instead just uses the right sort of Cali touches to augment the genius of Jansch, without getting in his way at all – at a level that also has Bert really sounding wonderful on vocals. Titles include "Love Anew", "Mary And Joseph", "Be My Friend", "You Are My Sunshine", "Lost And Gone", "When The Teardrop Fell", "Build Another Band", "Dynamite", and "Buckrabbit" and more. CD includes 6 bonus tracks – an alternate version of "Build Another Band", plus 5 tracks live from Montreux in 1975. CD

Jongo TrioJongo Trio (1972) ... CD
EMI/Odeon (Brazil), 1972. New Copy ... $3.99 14.99
The rare second album by the Jongo Trio – a fantastic bossa group who mixed together vocals and keyboards with stunning magic! The trio's approach is similar to that of the more famous Tamba Trio – in that the three members groove on keyboards, bass, and percussion – while also harmonizing vocals in a soaring, airy style that really adds a lot to the set. This album's got the group using a bit of organ and electric piano in addition to their usual acoustic keys – making for a bossa style that's slightly electrified, with great results on the album's overall sound. The set includes a really great uptempo version of "Aguas De Marco", plus the tracks "Alo Feveiro", "Quem Vem La", "Cavaleiro De Aruanda", "Sandalia De Prata", "Bate Barriga", "Feitinha P'Ro Poeta", and "Duas Contas".

Stan KentonRomantic Approach/Sophisticated Approach ... CD
Capitol/EMI (UK), 1961/1962. Used ... $8.99
Beautiful beautiful work from Stan Kenton – 2 albums that both apply the dark tones of his arranging style to a range of popular numbers that end up completely transformed! The Romantic Approach has Stan working with some unusual instrumentation that features the Kenton-designed "mellophonium" – an odd larger horn that creates a beautiful shimmering finish in the brass section – one that pushes the Kenton "wall of color" style even further than before, as Stan takes the group through a set of lushly emotive numbers. The tones and sounds are still very much in the Kenton mode, despite the "romantic" tag in the title – with a style that shows that brings in the modern along with the mellow – on tracks that include "Fools Rush In", "You're Mine You", "Moonlight In Vermont", "I'm Glad There Is You", and "All The Things You Are". The Sophisticated Approach features some wonderful charts from arranger Lennie Niehaus – emerging here as one of the more complicated talents of the west coast scene of the time – and stepping off the strength of his 50s small group sessions, into a realm that really points the way towards his later soundtrack work. The sound is lush and filled with colors from the dark end of the spectrum – mostly carried by a mellophonium-heavy horn section, but also featuring some redemptive moments on breakout solos. Titles include "Darn That Dream", "Moonlight Becomes You", "How Do I Look In Blue", "Time After Time", "My One And Only Love", and "You Stepped Out Of A Dream". CD

Earl KlughFinger Paintings/Heart String/Wishful Thinking ... CD
EMI/BGO (UK), 1977/1979/1984. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99 19.99
A triple-header from Earl Klugh – three records that helped redefine the sound of jazz guitar at the end of the 70s! First up is Finger Paintings – a real breakout album for Earl, and the kind of record that got him on the a-list of fusion players for the rest of the 70s! The title here is especially well-chosen – as the tunes have a gently colorful feel that's never too slick, despite the tighter setting of the album – with light arrangements by Dave Grusin that still leave Earl plenty of space to work his subtle magic on the strings of the guitar. Titles include "Keep Your Eye On The Sparrow", "Summer Song", "Dance With Me", "Dr Macumba", "Long Ago & Far Away", and "Cabo Frio". Heart String has Klugh working in this warm, mellow mode that's mighty nice – set to gentle orchestrations by Dave Matthews, which work perfect for Klugh's groove! There's nothing too over the top here, and Earl mixes acoustic and electric in a great sort of blend – using the former instrument to help keep a sort of soul to the proceedings, and never let things get too slick. Titles include "Heart String", "Spanish Night"," Pretty World", "Rayna", "Waiting For Cathy", "I'll See You Again", and "Acoustic Lady (parts 1 & 2)". Wishful Thinking is smooth fusion from one of the greats – and although an 80s set, a record that still holds onto most of the best warmth of Earl Klugh's earlier years! The production is surprisingly laidback at points – never too many 80s gimmicks or easy attempts at a hit – and Earl plays with arrangements from Dave Matthews, Don Sebesky, and Johnny Mandel – all top-shelf talents who know best how to keep the sound in line. All tracks are Klugh originals – and tunes include "Tropical Legs", "Wishful Thinking", "A Natural Thing", "All The Time", and "The Only One For Me". CD

KraftwerkTour De France (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
EMI/Astralwerks, 2003. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $24.99 26.99
A return to genius for one of the most important bands of the past 50 years – and a wonderful little record that we'd rank right up there with the best of their albums from the 70s! The album builds off the "Tour De France" single the group first recorded back in the early 80s – a classic tune with a huge influence that unfortunately was never on an album. And while this album bears the title and cover of that original single, the sound and style are a bit different – more in the mode of longer-worked electronic epics like Radio-Activity or Trans Europe Express – particularly the latter one, as this set has Kraftwerk taking a musical tour that matches the famous bicycle race – gliding around the countryside on waves of electronic magic! The whole thing's excellent – as brilliant as we could have hoped – and it's a long-overdue follow-up to one of our favorite tracks! Titles include "Chrono", "Vitamin", "La Forme", "Elektro Kardiogramm", "Titanium", "Aero Dynamik", and "Regeneration". LP, Vinyl record album

EMI/Manhattan, 1977. Used ... $11.99
A stone classic from reedman Ronnie Laws – and an album that really helped set a whole new standard for funky fusion in the 70s! Laws works here with great Wayne Henderson production – which gives the album an even sharper sound than other Blue Note sets of this vintage – and that kind of tight blend of funk and jazz you'd find in the Crusaders, with a similar no-nonsense approach in the grooves! Henderson's got a great way of never being too smooth – and Laws responds with some wicked solos on tenor, soprano sax, and flute – soaring out over the course of the whole wonderful album. Titles include "Goodtime Ride", "Just Love", "Saturday Evening", "Friends & Strangers", "Nuthin Bout Nuthin", "New Day", and "Same Old Story". CD

A really beautiful record from the Japanese electro scene at the start of the 80s – a record that's got some of the catchy synth modes of the period, but which also has a fair bit of other elements going on too! Logic System features keyboards from Hideki Matsutake – best known for his keyboard programming with YMO – and here, his style expands into some wider modes that almost remind us of our favorite French soundtrack styles of the period – slight currents of sentiment, and a richness of expression that goes way past the more familiar simpler forms of the keyboards. There's definitely some catchier tunes too, and the balance is very nice – on a set that's mostly instrumental, save for some occasional vocoded bits. Titles inlcude "Metamorphism", "Equivalent", "Be Yourself", "Prophet", "Morpheus", and "Venus". LP, Vinyl record album

Geoff LoveBig Suspense Movie Themes/Big Bond Movie Themes ... CD
EMI/Vocalion (UK), 1972/1975. Used ... $14.99
A pair of movie-themed albums from UK maestro Geoff Love! First up is Big Suspense Movie Themes – but don't think "suspense" – think cop or crime – as the tunes here come from a host of 60s and 70s action films, and often get nice and funky! Geoff Love manages to mix his modes together well here – offsetting some of the familiar themes with more laidback numbers that build up a nice sense of tension – often in ways that has the different songs working together with the feel of a single soundtrack! Titles include "Love Theme From Airport", "Shaft", "Frenzy", "Diamonds Are Forever", "The French Connection", "Paris By Night", and "In The Heat Of The Night". Next is Big Bond Movie Themes – a great take on the sound of James Bond thrillers – mostly featuring numbers penned by the great John Barry, and done by Geoff Love with a style that stays true to the 60s orchestrations, but adds in some slight 70s elements in the instruments and production! Titles include "Goldfinger", "Thunderball", "James Bond Theme", "On Her Majesty's Secret Service", "Diamonds Are Forever", "You Only Live Twice", and "From Russia With Love". CD

Marcelo D2A Arte Do Barulho ... CD
EMI (Brazil), 2008. Used ... $11.99
Marcelo D2's still looking for the perfect beat, but this time around he's got some great help in his search – a list of heavy duty guests that includes Seu Jorge, Miriam Aydar, Medaphor, Roberto Sa, and Marcos Valle – each of whom get a chance to add strongly to a track on the album! As before, the style's a Brazilian variant of hip hop – heavy beats on the bottom, crisp production throughout, and a fair bit of Portuguese rhymes on the top inflected in ways that are quite different than those on American hip hop. There's a fair bit of warm Brazilian elements in the mix too – percussion and melodies you'd never here up here on a record like this – and although lots have copied Marcelo's approach in recent years, he's still one of the best! Other guests include Thama De Frietas, Stephan Peixoto, and Cabeza De Panda – and titles include "Desabato", "A Arte Do Barulho", "Ela Disse", "Kush", "Meu Tambor", "Minha Missao", "Fala Serio", "Pode Acreditar", "Ativadade Na Laje", and "Afropunk No Valle Do Rap".

Great work from Marcelo D2 – one of the best Brazilian hip hop producers of the past decade or so – and one of the few who've really kept things interesting over the years! The music here probably has more links to American hip hop than the mainstream rhythms in Brazil – especially in the way the core sounds and samples show a strong affinity for US crate-digging, re-textured into some very strong beats. Lyrics are still all in Portuguese, accented differently than English – and the set also features guest appearances from Aloe Blacc, Versus, Sain, Like, and others. Titles include "Danger Zone", "Fella", "Voce Diz Que O Amor Nao Doi", "Rio", "Na Veia", "Vou Por Ai", and "Esta Chegando A Hora". CD

Titles include "Bobeou, Nao Vai Entender", "Madalena", "Ai! Que Saudades De Amelia", "De Frente", "Hey Voce", and "Carinhoso". CD

A crucial bit of keyboard funk from the 70s – a wild album of many moods, recorded in 1974, and featuring the talents of keyboard whiz Marc Moulin! Moulin's since been resurrected and given the credit he deserves – but at the time of release, this rare gem was somewhat lost – caught underneath the weight of more famous work by players like Herbie Hancock or George Duke. The album's got a jazzy groove in parts – and in others it's got a totally stripped down feel, and sounds a lot like a lost David Axelrod album, or a rare Herbie Hancock Japanese session. Includes the totally excellent 17 minute cut "Tohubohu", plus goodies like "La Blouse", "La Bougie", and "From". Plus, this Anniversary Edition includes a 2005 remix of "Tohubohu"!

The album features Milton with his "corner club" – an elite group of musicians and songwriters from the early days of his career – including greats like Lo Borges and Wagner Tiso – who'd already contributed to his music, but really get a chance to stand in the spotlight here. Borges is particularly fantastic, and shines on the massively beautiful cut "Tudo Que Voce Podia Ser", which begins the album – and which is still one of the best Nascimento cuts all these many years later! The sound of the record is impossible to describe adequately – but it's got a fantastically soulful vibe, soaring and joyous, and really expanded through the participation of the other rich talents. The vocals are mixed perfectly, and the songwriting's brilliant all the way through – and titles include "San Vincete", "Lila", "Paisagem Da Janela", "Cravo E Canela", "Tudo Que Voce Podia Ser", "Os Povos", "Nada Sera Como Antes", "Um Gosto De Sol", and "O Trem Azul".

The style here is a bit more subdued than on some of his later work – but in a way that's really majestic and soulful, showing the further development of Milton's unique idiom as he becomes one of the cornerstones of 70s MPB. There's a sense of power here that's very subtle, but which is pure Nascimento all the way – a maturing approach to both songwriting and singing that are light years from the music of Brazil a decade before. Filled with great material – and includes the tracks "Caldera" and "Circo Marimbondo", both of which have a nice swinging groove, plus "Viver De Amor", "Carro De Boi", "Fazenda", "Volver A Los 17", and "Minas Geraes".

An incredible album – especially if you dig the groovier side of Brazil! Os 3 Morais fit nicely in a groove that runs between Som 3, Tamba Trio, Marcos Valle, and Antonio Adolfo & Brazuca – and they have a style that's a mix of the madder baroque arrangements of Valle and Adolfo, with the harmony vocals of Tamba Trio or Quarteto Em Cy, and the slightly funky jazz of Som 3. This album's an impeccable treasure for fans of the Blue Brazil sound – and it's got a stellar reading of "Freio Aerodynamico" that's worth the price of the album alone!

A very cool little album from Placebo – arguably the group's most soulful session ever, and one that draws heavily from American funky jazz at the start of the 70s! The grooves are nice and tight, and keyboards are focused on the most soulful sort of riffs – not nearly as tripped out as in later years, and really doing a great job of sending home the funky rhythms – almost in a way that's sort of early CTI at the best points! Marc Moulin's genius is already firmly in place – and he handles all arrangements, plus plays Fender Rhodes, electric harpsichord, and even what sounds like a bit of moog!

Seminal sounds from Placebo – one of the hippest electric groups going on the European scene of the early 70s, thanks to some great keyboards and electronics from the legendary Marc Moulin! Placebo's sound here is a unique approach to funky jazz – one that certainly draws from the electric modes of the American scene, and without any of the jamming elements of other Euro fusion groups – but there's also a touch of rockish inflection at points too – especially in the way the rhythms have a tightly pulsating groove. There's none of the indulgence of prog, but there's definitely a lineage going on somewhere in the mix too – and in addition to Moulin's keyboards, the group also features great horns from Nick Fissette, Alex Socrier, and Richard Rousselet. Titles include "Bolkwush", "Temse", "Balek", "Phalene", "Re-Union", and "Only Nineteen". LP, Vinyl record album

Liberty/EMI, Early 60s. Used ... $16.99
Killer work by The Rivingtons – material recorded in the early 60s, but with all the rough, raw, and pyrotechnic edges of some of the best 50s doo wop! The group are probably best remembered for their title hit, but the whole CD is tremendous – a real treasure trove of under-discovered gems, done in a soaring, leaping, jumping, tumbling harmony style that's simply breathtaking – a groove that almost beats The Coasters and Olympics at their own game! The production is great – tight and focused, in a way that further emphasizes the quick twists and turns in the tunes – and even the few mellower numbers on the record come off well, thanks to the tight harmonies. CD features 23 tracks in all – including "The Bird's The Word", "The Shaky Bird (parts 1 & 2)", "Little Sally Walker", "The Weejee Walk", "Fairy Tales", "Love Pill", "Mama Oom Mow Mow", "Papa Oom Mow Mow", "Deep Water", "Kickapoo Joy Juice", and "Happy Jack".
