✨✧ Selda BagcanSelda ... CD
B- Music/Finders Keepers, 1975. Used ... $18.99
Funky breaks and fuzzy guitars – one of the most amazing albums to come out of the Turkish scene of the 70s – and one with a sound that really defies categorization! Although the sweet image of a girl and guitar on the cover might make you think the record's a folk set, the overall production is heavily electric – filled with fuzzed-up touches on the guitars, and usually supported by some funky drumming that gives most of the record a cool Eastern break sort of feel! Lyrics aren't in English, but they're oddly compelling even if you don't know what they mean – as Selda's voice has a weird other-wordly quality, and comes off with the same tripped-out qualities as the music! Titles include "Ince Ince", "Nasirli Eller", "Mehmet Emmi", "Dost Uyan", "Gitme", "Kizil Dere", "Yaz Gazeteci Yaz", and "Meydan Sizindir". CD features 5 bonus tracks – but it's not like you've got the original album, and needed those as an incentive to buy the reissue! CD

Suzanne CianiFlowers Of Evil ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
Suzanne Ciani has cut some sweeter sets over the years, but this album's definitely not one of them – as the whole thing is an early piece from the artist's career, recorded on the Buchla synthesizer, and based on the work of Charles Baudelaire! The core piece, "Flower Of Evil", features a recitation of a Baudelaire poem right into the Buchla – which then complicates and distorts the voice, as it mixes with these wonderful waves of analogue electronics – bubbling, flowing, and stretching out to create this moody landscape that really would have made the poet proud! The other three selections on the record are even more stark and spooky – still done on the Buchla, but with a vibe that's maybe even more in the mode of some of the Pierre Henry experiments from the same time. Titles include "Glass Houses" and "Token Spokes (parts 1 & 2)". LP, Vinyl record album

Suzanne CianiLixiviation – Ciani/Musica Inc 1969 to 1985 ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Heavy electro work from Suzanne Ciani – an artist who peaked a bit later than some of her sound library contemporaries – which means she was able to contribute music experimental films, record productions, and video games – and not just the usual mainstream outlets! Ciani's electronics here are a great mix of modes – both analogue and digital – and her sounds often have a darkness that's really compelling, especially when you consider the ways some of them were used in areas that reached some larger audiences – really cool little spooky bits that underscore the more potent ways that electronic sounds were often used in the 70s generation. The music is light years beyond the playfulness of Perry & Kingsley – and has none of the softness of Ciani's later new age sides – a great revelation that will hopefully get her the recognition she deserves. Titles include "Atari Video Games Logo", "Princess With Orange Feet", "Paris 1971", "Live Buchla Concert 1975", "Sound Of Wetness", "Eighth Wave", "Liberator Atari TV Spot", "Pop & Pour Coca Cola Logo", and "Lixiviation".

Lubos FiserValerie & Her Week Of Wonders ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
A dark little soundtrack that we'd pitch right up there with The Wicker Man or Rosemary's Baby – and one with a sound that's somewhere in between those two classics! The work was penned for an obscure early 70s film in the Czech new wave – and features music that's sometimes a bit folksy, sometimes a bit spiritualist – served up in a blend of light orchestrations, occasional choral passages, and eerie isolated instruments that include flute, harpsichord, organ, and bells! There's a darkly brooding quality that really reminds us of Komeda's last great moments for Polanski – but the overall sound is a bit freer, and more illustrative as well – little snippets of poetry in sound, created with a feel that's as evocative as the images they were designed to accompany. CD features 23 tracks in all – titles that include "The Magic Yard", "Talk With Grandmother", "The Letter", "The Sermon", "Sacrifice", "Questions & Answers", "Homeless", "Puppets", "In Flames", "Brother & Sister", "Forgiveness", and "And The Last".

Don GereWerewolves On Wheels ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), 1971. New Copy ... $24.99
A biker soundtrack to end all biker soundtracks – one that shares plenty of elements with better-known entries in the genre, but which also has some really wild and offbeat moments! As with most of the short-lived motorcycle soundtrack era, the vibe here is much more rock than other film scores of the time – written and performed by Don Gere, with a variety of styles that echo some of the fake groups that were often thrown together for bigger biker films – but sometimes with looser, weirder elements that really deliver the kind of sounds that we always expected on other biker soundtracks, but which were instead buried under piles of b and c-grade psych. Instead, Don really serves up the goods here – especially on some of the more fuzzy Satanic ritual tracks, which also have some great sound effects – and which then have you embracing some of the straighter rock tracks, almost as a relief. Titles include "Werewolves On Wheels (Main Theme)", "Mount Shasta Home", "Ritual", "Ritual 2", "The Devil's Advocates", "One Foot In Heaven", "Burning Grass", "Tarot", "Tarot Trail", "Dust Bowl", "Ritual 3", and "Werewolves On Wheels (End Theme)".

IlaiyaraajaIlectro – Euphoric Electronics & Robotic Funk (UK pressing) ... CD
Finders Keepers (UK), Mid 80s. Used ... $8.99
Great electronics from the Indian scene of the 80s – music that's a lot warmer and more evocative than you might guess from the "robotic" in the title – thanks to plenty of roots in the Kollywood soundtrack scene! The instrumentation is often spare, but still echoes the fuller scope of Bollywood brilliance – and at some level, Ilaiyaraaja's music here represents an 80s take on earlier Bollywood funk – sometimes a bit quirkier, due to the instrumentation – but hardly ever cold or stark at all, and very different from the kind of electronics that were brimming big on the European scene. Part of this quality really comes from the vocals – sung by singers who include KS Chitra, Malaysia Vasudevan, SP Balasubrahmanyam, Vani Jayaram, and others – often in styles that have the playful back/forth approach of Indian film lyrics. The set's a treasure through and through – with 17 mesmerizing tracks that include "Kadal Mele", "Mancha Podi", "Adi Rani", "Poo Poo Kkum", "Ilasa Sirusa", "Eswarane", "Needhi Idhu", and "Poongatre".

Andrzej KorzynskiPossession ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), 1981. New Copy ... $19.99
Amazing sounds from Polish composer Andrzej Korzynski – penned for a legendary horror film from the early 80s! The movie goes way beyond typical grit and gore – with a surreal bent that's made it the stuff of much discussion over the years – and Korzynski's music definitely lives up to the spirit of the images on the screen – mixing 80s electronics with offbeat strings, odd percussion, and other compelling bits – often used in very short songs that shift often throughout the course of the album – easily making the record one of the most playful we've ever heard from Finders Keepers – yet also one of the darkest too! A few sweet keyboard melodies offset some of the spookiness in a nice way – and titles include "Helen Has Green Eyes", "Opetanie 1", "The Night The Screaming Stops", "Blue Ford B AZ6", "Heinrick's Demise", "Mark Looks In The Fridge", "What Is It", and "Closely Observed Anna".

Maria Teresa LucianiSounds Of The City (Suoni Di Una Citta) ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), 1972. New Copy ... $22.99
An amazing sonic portrait of the modern city – one created on the early 70s Italian scene, but lost to the shifting sands of time, due to its release as a sound library-only album! We've heard Maria Teresa Luciani on a few other records of this nature – but this one may well be her greatest – music that's beyond categorization in the way it presents its subject – not really jazz or soundtrack styles at all, but also not some sort of too-modern compositional idiom either. Instead, the whole thing seems to make some sort of honest, organic sense – as it presents differing aspects of the city, both residential and commercial, public and private – often with a sense of darkness in the immediate approach, but also with a current of hope at times too. Titles include "Public Gardens", "Modern Residential Complex", "Supermarket", "Poor Neighborhoods", "Power Station", "Traffic", and "International Airport". LP, Vinyl record album

Popera CosmicLes Esclaves ... LP
Columbia/Finders Keepers (UK), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
The group name's got "opera" in the middle, but the set is way more than that – and way more than the usual "rock opera" modes in which the rare album is frequently cited! Instead, the whole thing's a freewheeling bit of French psych – very much tied to the trippier corners of the world that included music of Serge Gainsbourg and Jean-Paul Vannier, but with some freakier elements around the edges! The arrangements and production are wonderful – very different than some of the looser hippie modes that would come on the French scene in the early 70s – with sonic energy that keeps things nicely intense throughout, even when things are going wild! The project is the brainchild of mad rockers Francois Wertheimer, Guy Skornik, William Sheller, and Dominic Perrier – and also features sitar from Serge Franklin, orchestrations from sound library maestro Paul Piot, and jams from the group Alice. The whole thing is fantastic – and the reissue features a great booklet of notes and information on this very unique record! LP, Vinyl record album

Guy SkornikTusk ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), 1979. New Copy ... $16.99
Really beautiful electronics from the enigmatic Guy Skornik – an artist that we mostly know for his quirky concept record Pour Pauwels, but who sounds here like some of the best electronicians of the German scene of the 70s! All tracks are long and spun out – electronic, but with acoustic elements in the mix – maybe in a mode that's similar to the 70s soundtrack creations of Popol Vuh, Tangerine Dream, or Vangelis – but darker, too – most likely because the music was composed for an obscure film by Alexander Jodorowsky! Yet the music here hardly needs images on a screen – as Skornik's created these wonderfully evocative passages, created with some help from Steve Hillage and members of Cossi Anatz. Titles include "Elise & Tusk Reunited", "Poo Lorn 1", "Elise Liberates Tusk", "Poo Lorn 2", "Goodnight Ram Baba", "Elise On The Run", and "Crossing The River". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jean Claude VannierLa Bete Noire (2019 Record Store Day Release) ... 7-inch
Finders Keepers (UK), 1983. New Copy (pic cover)... $13.99
Very different work than usual for arranger/composer Jean Claude Vannier – not a slinky sexy soundtrack, but instead an all-acoustic set that features some fantastic jazzy touches – including work from saxophonist Philippe Mate, and vibes and percussion from Bernard Lubat! The 7" EP features two takes on the tune "Chasser La Bete Noire" – with lots of percussion and very driving solos from Mate – and the flipside features the more tuneful "Danse De La Bete Noire", which almost feels like a Nino Rota melody for Fellini! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Denis WiseWize Music ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $26.99
Denis Wise plays all instruments on this record – everything but the kitchen sink! Oh wait – the liner notes actually indicate that he does play a kitchen sink – and a garbage disposal too – but in ways that are completely changed, as he mixes them with sounds from a variety of guitars, keyboards, percussion, and various electronic instruments – all in this wild style that's surprisingly earthy and organic! At some level, the music is more a garage version of electro-acoustic modes from the academy – but at another, it's pure unbridled creation, with a sense of sonic joy that really comes through on the best numbers. Some songs are slightly tuneful, and there's maybe a bit of offbeat abstracted vocals here and there – on tunes that include "Balfazzar", "Light As Air", "Valhalla", "Machine Time Ship", "Love In Foam & Surf", "Andro", "Celes", and "Hedonic Rapture".

✨✧ Jean-Bernard RaiteuxLes Demons ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
If that creepy cover image alone isn't more than enough to make you want this record, the magical music within will certainly tip the balance! Jean-Bernard Raiteux may be best known for his French funk sounds in the Harlem Pop Trotters, but he's even more weird and wonderful here – turning in a wickedly groovy score for Jess Franco's film Les Demons (aka The Devils), with trippy sounds that are every bat as great as the music used in Franco's classic Vampyros Lesbos! The music has currents of jazz, funk, and psych – often all operating at once, with cool keyboards, fuzzy guitar, and lots of these fluttering flute lines that almost sound like Harold McNair or Roland Kirk on acid – blowing their minds, as they blow their minds out through their reed instruments too. Titles include "The Inquisition", "Kathleen Writhing", "The Stake", "The Seduction Of Winter", "The Second Inquisition", "A Witch's Daughter", and "Three Serpents To Kathleen's Dwelling".

Finders Keepers (UK), Late 60s. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
The first-ever release of some incredible funky folk tunes from vocalist Susan Christie – originally recorded as demos in the years before her work at Columbia Records, and arguably even better than those classic singles! Backings here are by John Hill, who inflects Susan's folksy style with a heavier undercurrent – one that's subtly funky at the best moments, and which also pushes fuller strings and more baroque instrumentation into the mix – all in a way that almost sounds like David Axlerod might, had he started making folk records! Titles include the amazing 9 minute "Yesterday, Where's My Mind" – a funky mini-suite that's worth the price of the record alone – plus "Paint A Lady", "Rainy Day", "Ghost Riders In The Sky", "Echo In Your Mind", "When Love Comes", and "For The Love Of A Soldier".

✨✧ Suzanne CianiBuchla Concerts 1975 ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Really beautiful work from electronic musician Suzanne Ciani – two long live performances from 1975 – both on her own Buchla synthesizer, and both in a mode that's quite different from her later material The first side features a performance done for WBAI – and Ciani is amazing in the way she spins out lines of electric sound and waves of tone – working the Buchla with the kind of effortless energy that some folks might bring to a jazz improvisation – although with very different sonic results! The second half of the record features an intimate concert done at the loft of Phil Niblock – and the approach is similar, but Ciani seems to work more in waves of sound that flow out into the space, and sometimes come back upon themselves in this beautifully echoey way! LP, Vinyl record album
(Comes with a very cool insert – a facsimilie of a report to the National Endowment For The Arts – done by Ciani in 1975!)

✨✧ Don & StevieDon & Stevie (UK pressing) ... CD
Finders Keepers (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Darkly beautiful sounds from the duo of Don & Stevie Gere – a husband and wife who work here with a style that's folksy, but a bit spooky too – possibly due to the fact that the music within was recorded in their California home, and never issued for years! There's a deeply personal feel to the songs here – almost like we're peeking in on the intimacy of the couple, but as they try to put together a message to reach outside of their home too – themes of their own love mixed with greater societal issues – later taken up as some of the songs were reworked by other artists like David Gates, Curt Boettcher, and Waddy Wachtel. Yet there's an innocence to these original recordings that's really mindblowing – rescued from oblivion on aging acetates, and represented here on cuts that include "Sweet Sugar", "Keep An Eye On You", "Another Blue Day", "What Do You Think Of Me", "Kindly", and "Tell Me Now".

✨✧ Emerald WebStargate Tapes 1979 to 1982 ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2 LPs ... Out Of Stock
A beautifully trippy duo who work here mostly with electronics – but who use the instruments in very organic ways that are almost acoustic! There's an earthy, almost hippieish quality to the sounds on the set – music that belies the pair's placement in the pre-New Age instrumental underground shared by Iasos, Laraaji, and others – but which also comes across here with a unique quality that's very much all their own! The music has a naive, optimistic feel that's very cool – and even when the keyboards step out front a bit more strongly on a few tracks, the energy of the record still has a lot more warmth than the Sky Records scene in Germany. After a smattering of various reissues, this full set finally does the duo justice – bringing together all the best track from their rare album and cassette-only releases – with the kind of notes and details we love from the Finders Keepers label. Titles include "Dawn", "The Dragon's Gate", "Flight Of The Raven", "Voices Of The Sage", "Chasing The Shadowbeast", "Nightsong", and "Valley Of The Birds". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Serge Gainsbourg & Jean Claude VannierLes Chemins De Katmandou ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A lost chapter in the legendary legacy of music from the team of Serge Gainsbourg and Jean-Claude Vannier – the pair who created Serge's fantastic Melody Nelson album, and also did the funky soundtracks for the films Cannabis, La Horse, and Sex Shop! This set is every bit as groovy as those classics, but has been lost for years – because the master tapes were reportedly lost, and have only just recently been discovered – which makes the whole thing a 21st Century treasure from these two 60s maestros! The music is great – funky at times, jazzy at others – with elements that include tablas and sitar, funky bass, fuzzy guitar, heavy drums, and sweet clavinet – all used with that mindblowing melange that Vannier could cook up in the studio – so that even some of the familiar elements come out sounding very fresh and new. The film was also issued under the names Road To Kathmandu and The Pleasure Pit – and titles include "Opium Den", "Overdose", "Flower Child", "The Pleasure Pit", "Cache Cache", "Fallen Rainbow", and the tune "Colin Maillard" – a great funky number that's done in both vocal and instrumental versions.

You may not be able to say his name that easily, but you'll definitely be singing the praises of Gokcen Kaynatan after you hear this groovy little record – a totally amazing bit of moogy electronics recorded on the Turkish scene in the 60s and 70s! There's plenty of guitar in the mix, too – but the real charm comes from the bubbling, percolated electronics – which seem to include some tape tricks along with the analogue synthesizer, and also some great drum machine rhythms too – but all in the best early chunky 70s modes, and not the later sort of 80s drum machine styles! There's only a slight hint of some of the more familiar Turkish rock styles of the period – as the songs here, while tuneful, are usually devoid of lyrics – and would most likely be more at home in the world of Perry & Kingsley than Ersen or Baris Manco. A fantastic discovery from the Finders Keepers folks – with titles that include "Lost Island", "Doganin Otesi", "Evren (unreleased ext version)", "Madimak", "Beyoglu'Nda Gezersin", and "Cennet Dunyamiz".

Beautiful Persian pop from Faegheh Atashin, aka Googoosh (alternately, Gougoush)– and like some of the best, adventurous pop music from around the world at the the time, it's steeped in myriad styles – from emotionally string-laden to funky and danceable! Googoosh is a genuine cultural icon in the realm of period Iranian pop music, but even with that status, some of her most amazing music is stunningly rare. Finders Keepers focuses a bit on the rare stuff for this incredible set – all from the early to med 70s – and it's one of their best ever releases. We don't speak the language, but there's no mistaking the genuine soul at the center of the songs. Really great stuff!

Gerardo Iacoucci's music is a huge change from the kind more facile sound library material coming out of the UK – the sorts of short, catchy songs designed for easy use in commercials or TV – and instead, the work here is richly conceived and presented, with a new sort of surprise at each track on the record – and just the right sort of balance to appeal to fans of both groovy and more wild sound library material.

Fantastic sounds from outer space – a electro-acoustic masterpiece, put together for a Czech sci-fi film of the 60s – but done in a mode that stretches far out into space beyond the world of cinema! The music is stark and dark at some times – almost with an electro-shock approach – but other moments are beautifully tuneful, too – and as things pick up, there's even a few jazzier passages that are similar to Peter Thomas' great work on the Raumpatrouille soundtrack! This one's still a lot spookier than that one – and some of the timings of the music have this wonderful crash-up vibe, which is pretty darn unique.

One of the rarest albums ever from the mighty Masahiko Sato – a Japanese musician we love for his jazz, funk, and psychedelic sounds – all of which come into play on this unusual animated soundtrack! The music is plenty trippy right from the start – very offbeat, from the instrumentation to the production to the pacing – never in a mode that's too avant, but which is very much its own thing – as Sato weaves a way forward with cool spacey keyboards, slow-brooding basslines, and these dreamy vocals from singer Chinatsu Nakayama! Some moments feel like the best funky electric Italian sound library material of the time – but there's also a lot more going on, too – including some of that great style Sato would use on other albums, when he'd blend psychedelic inspiration with very groovy jazz.

Finders Keepers (UK), 1972. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A baroque instrumental masterpiece from Jean Claude Vannier – Serge Gainsbourg's right hand man at the start of the 70s, and a key figure in the legendary Histoire De Melody Nelson album! The feel here is very much along the lines of work that Serge was doing at the time – larger orchestrations mixed with smaller instrumentation – in a level that's often funky, always baroque, and very much in the best Sexopolis styles of the French pop scene of the time! There's a marked similarity here to some of the work of Michel Colombier – but unlike Colombier, and Gainsbourg, there's no vocals at all on these tracks – and the main genius is carried by Vannier's incredibly arranged strings, rolling rhythms, fuzzy guitars, and dark little soundtrack-styled groove! Some tracks are wonderfully funky, others are moody and tripped-out – and the whole thing's a masterpiece that we'd file right up there with our favorite French work of the time! Titles include "L'Enfanta La Mouche Et Les Allumettes", "Danse Des Mouches Noires Gardes Du Roi", "Mort Du Roi Des Mouches", "Le Papier Tue-Enfant", "Les Garde Volent Au Secours Du Roi", and "Petite Agonie De L'Enfant Assassin".

Freaky French vampire music – a heady assortment of grooves from the b-movie genius of director Jean Rollin! The tracks here are filled with tripped-out touches that are mighty nice – almost a Vampyros Lesbos aesthetic, but a bit darker, too – not always as all-out groovy, and with just the right sort of moodiness that shows that Rollin was definitely taking his vampires seriously – even when having fun! There's a hip blend of fuzzy guitars and freaked-out organs on some tracks – while others have instrumentation that's more spare and stark – almost primal at points, and certainly seductive throughout. The package is overflowing with great tracks from Rollin films by artists who include Francois Tusques, Pierre Raph, Yvon Gerault, and Acanthus – and titles include "Wedding Party", "La Cite Rouge", "Skittles", "Blue Doll Baroque", "Flightless Bird", "Blind Songbird, "Gilda & Gunshots", "Fallen Dancer", "Crotch Batterie", and "Batterie Fields".

You might know the DeAngelis name from other funky Italian work of the 70s – thanks to the soundtrack genius of Guido & Maurizio DeAngelis – but this DeAngelis is their sister Emma, who had a much shorter career – but one that was equally groovy overall! The set begins with the funk monster "Forgiveness" – a track that has to hardly ask for its title, as any funk fan would be grateful to have this gem in their collection – thanks to romping drums and some wickedly funky guitar! "Trip" is moodier – kind of a slow-building number with mellow piano tripping over keyboard waves that flow up and down – with a real superdope vibe overall! "Plankton" is still funky, but very trippy too – loose string plucking that almost feels more like piano strings being strummed than a guitar, but with these slow waves of sound that are mighty nice! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Limited to 1000 copies.)

✨✧ VariousDisco Dildar – DIY Disco From The Pakistani Pop Workshop ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Not the straight disco you might expect from the title – and instead a whole host of weird and wonderful grooves from the later years of the Lollywood film scene! These Pakistani tracks follow a bit of the style of Bollywood work of the time, but often have a tighter, more compressed approach – sharper electric instrumentation, especially keyboards, mixing with bold acoustic lines on horns and plenty of percussion – all in support of singers who soar out over the top with this really other-worldly style! Overall, there's a bit less of the sentiment you'd find in Indian film music, and instead this oddly angular, offbeat approach that really keeps things interesting – and more than trippy enough to match the slight psychedelic currents in the production. Titles include "Tere Saath Mulaqaat Ek Raat Ki" by Tafo Brothers & Nahid Akhtar, "Tere Mere Larr Gaye" by Kamal Ahmed & Mehnaz, "Oh My Darling" by Nisar Bazmi & Runa Laila, "Badal Aur Bijli" by Sohail Rana, "Happy New Year" by Tafo Brothers & Noor Jehan, and "Disco Dildaar Mera" by M Ashraf & Noor Jehan. Compiled by Andy Votel & Chris Menist too! LP, Vinyl record album

Beach BoysSurfin USA ... LP
Capitol, 1963. Very Good+ ... $29.99
Early work from The Beach Boys, but Brian Wilson's genius is already starting to show – tucked in between some more obviously poppy numbers that first put the group on the map! The album obviously features the big title hit, but there's some other great gems here that are much lesser known – our favorite of which is "The Lonely Sea", an incredible number filled with sadness and longing, and a real precursor to the Pet Sounds years! Other titles include "Finders Keepers", "Lana", "Farmer's Daughter", "Noble Surfer", "Stoked", "Surfin USA", "Miserlou", "Shut Down", and "Let's Go Trippin". LP, Vinyl record album

Clifford BrownJazz Immortal ... LP
Pacific Jazz, 1954. Near Mint- ... $29.99
Seminal west coast recordings by Clifford Brown – recorded in LA in 1954, with a mixture of hard bop and lyricism, in that sparkling mode that Brownie left as his indelible imprint on the west coast scene of the 50s! Players include Bob Gordon on baritone, Stu Williamson on trombone, Zoot Sims on tenor, and Russ Freeman on piano – and Jack Montrose arranged the set. Titles include "Tiny Capers", "Bones For Jones", "Joy Spring", "Finders Keepers", and "Daahoud". LP, Vinyl record album
(Japanese pressing, on King – with obi! Cover has some very light wear in one corner, but this is a great copy overall.)

CaliforniansEarly Morning Sun – 60s Harmony Pop Produced By Irving Martin ... CD
Teensville, Late 60s. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
The Californians are liars, at least when it comes to their name – as the group hail from mid 60s England, and not the sunny west coast – but we can more than forgive them that fib, given that their music here is so downright groovy! Their name's not a complete mistake, as the group clearly love the harmony vocal sound of the Sunshine Pop generation – especially The Beach Boys – and, like British contemporaries Harmony Grass, they do a fantastic job here of transplanting the best Wilson Brothers modes over to the UK – serving up harmonies that are very much in the best mode of that famous group right around their Pet Sounds years! There's no Brian Wilson at the helm, so the production maybe isn't as revolutionary – but the songs are great, and the vocals even better – on titles that include "Out In The Sun", "What Love Can Do", "Follow Me", "Golden Apples", "Little Ship With A Red Sail", "You've Got Your Troubles", "Early Morning Sun", "Weep No More", "Sad Old Song", "The Cooks Of Cake & Kindness", and "The Sound". CD also features more great related tracks by Paul Craig, Royalty, Sight & Sound, Finders Keepers, and The Tony Jackson Group. CD

ErsenDunden Bugune ... LP
Sahinler (Turkey), 1977. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $24.99
Funky Turkish rock from the enigmatic Ersen – an artist we'd rank right up there with Erkin Koray and Selda for choppy grooves and offbeat music! Like both of those artists, Ersen works in that vein of Turkish rock known as Arabesk or Andalou pop – a very cool blend of Western psychedelic influences and more regional Eastern sounds – all woven together here with some totally great rhythms that are very much in the best rock-break mode! The guitars alone are worth the price of admission – often blending the electric and folkloric – and the music has great appeal to anyone digging tripped-out funky rock of the Cherrystones or Finders Keepers variety. This album is Ersen's first – and titles include "Yeden Beni", "Kara Yazi", "Dostlar Beni Hatirlasin", "Garip Gonlum", "Uc Kiz Bir Ana", and "Done Sevdigim". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousB-Music – Drive In, Turn On, Freak Out ... CD
B- Music (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $26.99
Funky psychedelia and multicultural cosmic grooves – late 60s & early 70s discoveries collected and put together by a team of some of the deepest diggers of boundary busting pulpy material out there –the vital B-Music/Finders Keepers team! Here they've delivered one of our favorite B- compilations yet, really a mindblowing set of tunes. The sounds are far flung and from all over the world – but they share a common trait in that no matter how far out a tune might be, they all have a furious core groove. Wild cinematic soundtrack bits, spacey early prog, freaky folk, buzzing guitar jams, spiraling keyboard and hard driving funk tunes of all kinds – obscure stuff from Turkey, China, France, Europe, Japan, Poland, and the wilds of the UK & US scenes – amazing stuff all around! Nearly half of these nuggets were selected by B- resident geniuses Andy Votel and Dom Thomas, and the others chosen by influential guest DJ, producers & tastemakers including David Holmes, Lee Janda, Cherrystones, Chris McBride & others. 21 tracks in all: "The Good, The Bad & The Ugly" by The Melodians, "Be Quite" (sic) by Jean Jacques Dexter, "Green Mountain, Jade Valley" by Cheung Kam Chun, "Arkham" by Spectre, "Bebek" by Sevil & Ayla, "Caballo Salvaje" by Unidades, "Fire" by Pegasus, "South Indian Line" by Jan Jankeje, "Guerra E Pace, Pollo E Brace" by Ennio Morricone, and more, plus the bonus track "Mera Mehbob Hai" by Nahid Akhtar.

VariousPlastic Dance Vol 2 – Domestic Synth Pop & Patchbay Punk – Compiled by Andy Votel & Doug Shipton ... LP
Cache Cache (UK), Early 80s. New Copy ... $22.99
Forget the darker sounds of the cold wave generation – and fall in love with the groovier, funkier style of these electronic gems from the post-punk years! The music here is as heavy on keyboards and electronics as the first volume in the series – and the tunes sometimes have vocals, sometimes a strong instrumental focus – almost always with some sort of a groove! There's a whole strain of tracks here that almost feel like some early 80s evolution of the moog pop modes of the Perry-Kingsley generation – and given the dates, and the budgets of most of the artists, the instrumentation is more analogue than you might expect. As always with Finders Keepers/Cache Cache, the track list is superb – and the whole thing is the sort of musical discovery that's always made us totally love the label! Titles include "Die Liebe Ist Ein Abenteuer" by Ti Tho, "Rattan" by Cosmic Overdrive, "Meat Grinder" by George Atwell, "Walking Away" by Vibrant Thigh, "Chicken Skin Planet" by Beach Surgeons, "Einstein" by Cos, "Welcome Home" by Pragvec, and "Zombie 2" by Andrzej Korzynski.

✨✧ VariousTurkish Ladies – Female Singers From Turkey 1974 to 1988 ... CD
Sony (Germany), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... $8.99
A much-needed look at the huge legacy of female singers in Turkish music during the 70s – one that stands as a great complement to so much of the recent reissues of male artists from the same time! Much of this music shares qualities with reissues on labels like Pharaway Sounds or Finders Keepers – in that the singers often have a strong sense of drama, mixed with a really evocative blend of modern and older instrumentation – electric and acoustic, Western and Eastern, all served up as a way of pulling folk roots into a more urban milieu! The package is very well-done, and not only features detailed notes, but also English translations of the lyrics – for songs that include "Var Oy" by Ferda Gul, "Vamyorum" by Gulden Karabocek, "Ara Leyli" by Gul Sorgun, "Vikilla Koyler" by Dilber Dogan, "Bir Sans Daha Ver" by Huri Sapan, "Tut Kalbimi Tut" by Nese Alkan, "Olmeden De Vasamak" by Esmeray, and "Sen Bir Vana" by Gonul Vazar.

✨✧ VariousLet The Good Times In – Sunshine, Soft, & Studio Pop 1966 to 1972 ... CD
Teensville (Australia), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really deep dig into the farther reaches of Sunshine Pop at the end of the 60s – a time when the genre was still running high, with all the sweet sounds and harmony vocals you'd expect – but also taking some key turns into the world of soft rock as well! This music might be known as the "world that Brian Wilson begat" – as there's plenty of ties to the world of the Beach Boys and other Wilson productions of the mid 60s – but served up with a nice variety of styles, some slight traces of psych, and growing sophistication in the production as the years go on – all making for a completely sublime set of rare tracks we'd never have heard otherwise! As with other Teensville collections, the choice of material is superb, and there's also a heck of a lot of tracks as well – 33 titles that include "Looking For An Answer" by Collage, "Come Back Baby" by Rogue Show, "Midsummer's Night" by Steve Leeds, "Don't Give In To Him" by Finders Keepers, "My Mind's Losing Me" by Jonah P Jones, "Mr Hitmaker Man" by Sandy Kannon, "Wanting" by Peter Antell, "And Then I Think Of You" by The Sherry Sisters, "No No You Don't Know" by Bennett & Evans, and "Someday They'll Reach Out" by Tommy T's Federal Reserve.
