Soul ChildrenFinders Keepers ... LP
Epic, 1976. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A strong little album by the Soul Children – recorded after their years at Stax, with a very different sound – but one that's still totally great overall! The grooves are a bit warmer and more modern soul styled – uptempo at times, but never in a throwaway club mode – and in a way, the shift is a bit similar to that taken by The Dramatics at the same point. There's still plenty of nicely rough edges in the vocals – that raspy sense of soul that first made us fall in love with the group – and by this point, the lineup has been reduced to a trio, with more of a focus on male vocals than before. The session's filled with work by great Detroit talents who include Don Davis, Steve Mancha, and Harvey Scales – and tracks include "Finders Keepers", "A Little Understanding", "We Got To Get Our Thing Together", and "I'm Just A Shoulder To Cry On".

VariousFinders Keepers – Motown Girls 1961 to 1967 ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $13.99 19.99
Female Motown, way past the hits – a wonderful selection of rare cuts from the 60s, including a dozen previously unissued tracks! The collection is a real discovery, even for Motown fans – and the set is filled with gems that go way past the obvious – some real Detroit soul treasures that make the whole thing a delight! Lots of the work is from that key early Motown stretch, when the label was really coming into its own, but still trying out a lot of new ideas too – and as such, were really willing to move past some obvious hit modes of the time. And make no mistake – these cuts aren't leftovers, or half-baked – as all of them have top-shelf production and arrangements – further proof that the Motown approach never dimmed at all. Titles include "Do You Know What I'm Talkin About" by LaBrenda Ben, "Don't Turn Your Back On Me" by Brenda Holloway, "Build Him Up" by Martha & The Vandellas, "Like A Nightmare" by The Andantes, "Dance Yeah Dance" by Thelma Brown, "When Somebody Loves You" by Gladys Knight & The Pips, "My Black Belt" by Hattie Littles, "It's Too Soon To Know" by Kim Weston, "I Gotta Right To Sing The Blues" by Liz Lands, "If Wishes Came True" by Anita Knorl, and "So Let Them Laugh At Me" by Linda Griner.

Suzanne CianiLixiviation – Ciani/Musica Inc 1969 to 1985 ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $20.99 26.99
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".

Emerald WebStargate Tapes 1979 to 1982 ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. Near Mint- 2LP ... $24.99
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)... $26.99
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.

Don GereWerewolves On Wheels ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), 1971. New Copy ... $22.99
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)".

Zdenek LiskaMala Morska Vila (limited splatter vinyl) ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), 1976. New Copy ... $27.99 29.99
A stunning soundtrack from the glory days of the Czech film scene – served up here in a weird mix of electronics, orchestrations, and voices – all at a level that makes you feel like someone went into the sound labs of the Italian scene of the early 70s, cut up all the tapes from the bigger names, and pasted them back together in some mad musical pastiche! There's a fair bit of all-electronic numbers that are spare and striking – almost musique concrete – mixed with others that have a more melodic vibe – all served up in short tunes that really shift the mood over the course of the set. Lenka Korinkova provides some lead vocals – and titles include "Mala Morska Vila", "Witches Firewall", "The Sixth Sister", "The Black Sea", "The Kiss", "Games/Echoes", "Behind The Rock", "The Pendant" and more.

JM PaganKiu I Els Seus Amics ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), 1984. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
A strange spacey soundtrack from mid 80s Spain – one composed for a daytime TV show, but with a weird electronic vibe that must have shocked the kids who were watching at the time! The music has some echoes of the cooler side of the German new wave – not the darkness of the cold wave side, but maybe the mix of playfulness and experimentation you'd hear from Pyrolator or Der Plan – both of whom would be a good comparison the spirit of the songs on this set! Most tunes are instrumental, but still pretty darn catchy – and when there's vocals, they're usually processed in the best 80s electro way. Titles include "Una Dia Especial", "Tema De Kiu", "El Mon De Kiu", "Un Dia Boig", "Beat De Beth", "Ball De Beth", "Quan Jo Sigui Una Estrella", and "Tema De La Lluno". LP, Vinyl record album

Alain PierreO Sidarta (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), 1974. New Copy ... $24.99
Two amazing works from Belgian electronic genius Alain Pierre – both appearing in this form for the first time ever! Side one features 11 minutes of continuous music that Pierre created for the short film O Sidarta – music that mixes a range of electronics, keyboards, and acoustic percussion with studio effects and voice – all with a result that almost feels like some of the longer-form prog creations of the German scene of the time – although with qualities that are much more varied, less rock-based, and with occasional nods to the earlier generation of musique concrete! The flipside features the 17 minute "Notions De Physique Intererieure" – a work that uses a wide array of electric sources in a very short space – theremin, Arp sequencer, Telefunken echomixer, and more Arp, Kort, and Oberheim keyboards – all in this slow-building, wonderfully spacey sort of mode – almost hinting at some of the straighter fantasy soundtracks that Pierre would create in the mainstream – as the piece has the feel of a story in sound!

Jean Claude VannierL'Enfant Assassin Des Mouches (UK pressing) ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), 1972. New Copy Gatefold ... $22.99
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".

✨✧ VariousSound Of Wonder – The First Wave Of Plugged-In Pop At The Pakistani Picture House (UK pressing) ... CD
Finders Keepers (UK), 1970s. Used ... $18.99
Amazing grooves from the Lollywood scene of the 70s – the Pakistani equivalent of the films coming out of India's Bollywood at the time! The grooves here are often quite different than what you might hear from Bollywood – still touched with an Eastern, exotic sensibility (at least to our Western ears) – but often presented with rhythmic elements that change things up nicely, making the best numbers come across like frenetic funk – often intercut with cool keyboards and a bit of hip electronics! The sound of these cuts is amazingly fresh – and 60s-styled electric guitar lines often come into play with 70s grooves and moogy bits – making for music that's as pan-historical as it is territorial. Once again, Finders Keepers have done a wonderful job with the package – pulling these gems out of some distant vault, polishing them up beautifully, and presenting the whole thing with enough notes to help us better understand this hardly-tapped scene. The whole thing's amazing – surely one of our favorite musical discoveries in recent years – and titles include "Good News For You" and "Main Hoon Play Boy" by M Ashraf, "I Am Very Sorry" and "Yeh Raat Jane Keya Keya" by Kamal Ahmed, "Meri Marzi Main Gaoon Gi" by Nisar Bazmi, "Na Main Chini Na Japani" and "Kad Ley Way" by Tafo, "Pyar Ka Koee Shola" by M Ashraf, and "Society Girl" by Nazir Ali.

✨✧ Selda BagcanSelda ... CD
B- Music/Finders Keepers, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Daniela CasaSovrapposizione Di Immagini ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), 1975. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Hypnotic sound library material from Italian composer Daniela Casa – some of her rarest work from the mid 70s – recorded in her home studio and never before released commercially! It's very compelling work, with a range of styles from minimalist soundtrack music, to fairly heavy psych, to sitar-driven strings, to airy flute pieces and beyond. It was recorded for use in radio, television and film, but it honestly works just as well as melodic, if experimental instrumentals that masterfully blends and straddles genres. Titles include "Ricerca Dela Materia", "Pericolo", "Dimensione Concreta", "Grosse Cilindrate", "Avventura", "Visione Surreale", Occultismo", "Fantasia", "Motocross", "Dimensione Astrata", Ugnoto", "Circo Del Bimbi", "Sovrapposizione Di Immagini" and more.

Finders Keepers (UK), Late 60s. New Copy Gatefold ... Temporarily 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".

Pulp psychedelia from the vaults of Barcelona's Belter Records label – classified as the "Cradle Of Spanish Pop" – but collected here from the era of post psychedelic exploitation! The set includes heady covers/reworkings of Stones, Bowie, Quincy Jones and others, heady stoner funk rock and freaked out cosmic pop – all in the leftfield tradition of the best Finders Keepers comps. On top of the covers, there's a trippy take on the theme from the American cop show Ironside, a string flavored pulp pop number from a star of Vampyros Lesbos and more!

✨✧ Suzanne CianiFlowers Of Evil ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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 CianiMusic For Denali ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), 1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the most beautiful records we've ever heard from electronic pioneer Suzanne Ciani – and one of the earliest too! The tracks here were composed for a documentary in 1973 – one dealing with skiing in Alaska – and Ciani uses a sublime mix of acoustic piano and Buchla synthesizer for the score – laid out on long tracks that have a really organic, tuneful energy – shifting between mood throughout the course of the record – and highlighting a warmth of piano talent that we never knew about from Suzanne! The blend of electric and acoustic is fantastic – a bit like some of the Brian Eno piano/electronics experiments over the years, and some of the mid 70s work issued on his Obscure Music imprint – although here, done by Ciani a few years before, the whole thing is even more revolutionary. Titles include "Windy Corner", "Fresh Snow", "Denali", "Downhill At Last", "Getting To The Top", "Snow Climbing", and "The Last Rest". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ COSCosmix ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
Fantastic freewheeling sounds from Cos – a 70s Belgian group who were equal parts jazz and prog – often working with a tight quality that really drew the best of both worlds together! Cos has a lineup that changes often over the years – and which includes work on keyboards from the mighty Marc Moulin, and bass from Marc Hollander – before his later fame in Aksak Maboul – but the real giant here might well be multi-instrumentalist Daniel Schell, whose work got the group going in the first place, alongside female vocalist Pascale Son! Like Schell, Son's got plenty of roots in jazz – but the duo work here with the other musicians in this evolving exploration of the hippest corners of 70s music – a journey that's got plenty of funky jazz along the way, and the great keyboards you'd expect from Marc Moulin – but also some nicely offbeat art rock moments too. This collection brings together the group's best tracks from their mighty run – and titles include "Einstein J'Taime", "Oostend Oostend", "Babel", "L'Idiot Leon", "Nog Verder", "Flamboya", "Postaeolian Train Robbery", "Achtung TV Watchers", "Perhaps Next Record", and "Halucal".

Finders Keepers (UK), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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".

"Black Cat" is a groovy little tune from Turkish rocker Durul Gence – maybe slightly more Anglo-styled than music from some of his contemporaries, but in a really great way! Lyrics are in English, and the tune's got this great groove that mixes acoustic guitar and fuzz with plenty of dark corners around the edges – and "Boo Song" maybe feels even more British overall, with this use of acoustic guitar amidst more soaring arrangements – which, with Durul's vocals, make the whole thing feel like some lost London gem from 1969! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Finders Keepers (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Rare and unreleased instrumentals from the great French orchestral pop composer Jean Claude Vannier – amazing stuff from his personal archive that ranges from loosely haunting passes to more grandly orchestrated bits – funky psych rock backdrops to heavy, tribal percussion numbers! Vannier is as much of a master of setting a mood as he as an expert composer-arranger, and this great set is brilliant showcase of his talent and we'd even say a fine entry point if you're just now being introduced. He's greatly reknowned for the incredible work he did with Serge Gainbourg, as well he should be – but a standout artist on his own, as you're hear here! It's got previously unreleased numbers from his Vannier's own vaults, many from a fertile period in the early 70s, plus rare sound library recordings and more! Includes "Bombard Lamentation" (centered around the reed instrument used most often in Breton music), "L'Ours Peresseux – 1969", "La Girafe Au Ballon", "Claquez Klaxons", "Theme 504", "Road To Cuba", "La Douleur De L'Orchestre", "L'Elephant Equilbriste", "Je M'Appelle Geraldine", "Saturnin Vaca Vaca" and more.

Wild sounds in a range of different styles – jazz, rock, and more outside modes – all served up in support of a legendary list made years ago by the group Nurse With Wound! The list was a secret guide to all things weird and unusual – put together decades back, and now famous as kind of a Rosetta Stone for stepping into music from the farther left side of the spectrum – here served up from a range of German recordings from back in the day, most recorded during a key moment when the scene was really breaking down boundaries in styles! There's a fair bit of electric elements here, and you'll recognize a few artists as being heroes from the prog and MPS generations – on titles that include "Fritz Muller Traum" by Fritz Muller, "Jazzi Jazzi" by Tomorrow's Gift, "Output" by Wolfgang Dauner, "Black Sand" by Brainticket, "Trauma" by Gomorrha, "Big City" by Thirsty Moon, "Snakeskin Tango" by Brainstorm, "Scorpion" by Association PC, "The Executioner" by My Solid Ground, "It Loves Want To Have Done" by Anima Sound, and "It's So Nice" by Ex Magma.

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".

An amazing soundtrack to an amazing film – a Czech new wave classic that's supported by sounds as dynamic as the images on the screen! There's a really playful feel to the whole thing – much more so than other Finders Keepers reissues in recent years – and the music jumps along in a mix of military moments, folkloric elements, jazzy bits, and some spare, simple melodies – almost a bit like Nino Rota's best for Fellini, but a lot crazier overall! Instrumentation has some almost Moondog touches at the best points – repetitive woodwind or piano bits, with some grittier, organic elements at the bottom – and although much of the music is by the team of Jiri Suchy and Jiri Slitr, there's also other bits that crash into the mix too – almost with a surprising, abrupt sort of quality. Titles include "Peach Tree Thieves", "Threes A Crowd", "Red Carpet", "Burning Ribbons", "Girlies Girlies", "Roses Red Roses Red", "Cuckoos", "Scissors", and "Beggars Banquet". LP, Vinyl record album

A fantastic assortment of forward-thinking sounds – music that comes from some of the farthest corners of the postwar experimental underground – and which was all famously cited by the group Nurse With Wound as a big influence on their earliest albums! That reference aside, though, the collection is more than mindblowing enough, even if you're not a devotee of NWW – because the package offers this amazing criss-crossing of styles and sources – work from territories that lie far beyond easy categorization or reference, with some especially unusual work from the oft-overlooked French scene of the 60s and 70s! You'll hear bits of noise, slices of improvisation, occasional electronics, and lots more – in modes that skew towards the instrumental, with selections that include "Cecile" by Jacques Thollot, "Warinobaril" by Lard Free, "Fille De L'Ombre" by Dashiell Hedayat, "Frayeur" by Horrific Child, "Triptik 2" by Jean Guerin, "Generique (Theme De Myriam)" by Pierre Henry, "Sarcelles C'Est L'Avenir" by Red Noise, "Solo Un Dia" by ZNR, "Captain Tarthopom" by Jean Cohen Solal, "Les Enfants Saugaves" by Mahjun, and "La Plage" by Philippe Besombes.

A stunning soundtrack from the glory days of the Czech film scene – served up here in a weird mix of electronics, orchestrations, and voices – all at a level that makes you feel like someone went into the sound labs of the Italian scene of the early 70s, cut up all the tapes from the bigger names, and pasted them back together in some mad musical pastiche! There's a fair bit of all-electronic numbers that are spare and striking – almost musique concrete – mixed with others that have a more melodic vibe – all served up in short tunes that really shift the mood over the course of the set. Lenka Korinkova provides some lead vocals – and titles include "Mala Morska Vila", "Witches Firewall", "The Sixth Sister", "The Black Sea", "The Kiss", "Games/Echoes", "Behind The Rock", "The Pendant" and more.

✨✧ Maria Teresa LucianiSounds Of The City (Suoni Di Una Citta) ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Graeme Miller & Steve ShillCarrier Frequency ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), 1984. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A rare soundtrack from an unusual UK stage production of the early 80s – presented here on record for the first time ever! The piece was a stage extension of the novel Riddley Walker – and has this eerie, sci-fi like vibe – scored here by Graeme Miller and Steve Shill with qualities that are almost like some of the most experimental industrial work of the period – maybe no surprise, given that the piece shared stages with SPK and Einsturzende Neubauten at the time! Every track is a little bit different, but the overall approach uses acoustic and electronic elements in ways that make it hard to tell where the sonic space is blurring between them – mostly instrumental, but with occasional use of voice – on titles that include "The Girl From Tirana", "Landschaft", "The Record", "Longdream", "A Long Paleness", "Reggie Windmill", and "Without Impatience".

✨✧ Graeme Miller & Steve ShillMoomins – Woodland Band (parade)/Observatory (short) (limited felt sleeve) ... 7-inch
Finders Keepers (UK), 1974. New Copy (pic cover)... Out Of Stock
Two beautiful little songs from the Moomins animated series – one of them issued here for the first time ever! "Woodland Band (parade)" is a gentle number with a sweet flute line over this guitar part that moves up and down in a way that's lightly resonating – before opening up to some larger horns about halfway through, while still continuing all the soft-spoken charms of the melody! "Observator" has more cool flute, but used alongside these unusual electronics – which makes for a strange blend of melody and spaciness! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Limited to 500 copies – and comes in a custom-stitched, felt-backed sleeve with original images from production stills!)

✨✧ MiquelaI A De Sars ... LP
Ventadorn/Finders Keepers (UK), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
An album from the mid 70s, but one that's got an almost timeless sort of vibe – given that it was recorded in the ancient language of Occitan, and set to instrumentation with lots of lightly folksy touches, and a fair bit of jazz-styled phrasing too! The mix almost gives the set the feel of some of the best Saravah Records material of the decade – and the instrumentation, arrangements, and even presentation of language follow that sort of spirit too – as Miguela has a very poetic approach to her music, and the language, while not totally familiar, does echo a fair bit of the French of her homeland – but sometimes with a spooky blend of past and present, ala Wicker Man. Titles include "De Bon Matin", "Les Colonies", "Palunaia", "La Targa", "Lo Barranguet", "I A De Sers", and "Tu E Ieu". Also features two bonus tracks from a 45 – "Retorn" and "Magali". LP, Vinyl record album
(Comes with a nice booklet of notes, too!)

✨✧ Pierre RaphJeunes Filles Impudiques (Schoolgirl Hitchhikers) ... 7-inch
Finders Keepers (UK), Late 60s. New Copy (pic cover)... Out Of Stock
Funky sounds and offbeat grooves from an obscure French adult film of the late 60s – directed by Jean Rollin under a fake name, and scored by Pierre Raph with the same sort of charm as his work for Requiem For A Vampire! This EP features a number of different styles of sounds from the film – the very funky "Gilda & The Gunshots", with really great bass and drums; the slow-stepping jazz tune "Jewel Thieves", which almost feels like early 60s Italian cinema jazz; and the more lively "Schoolgirl Hitchikers", which has this innocent jazzy flute line that must have been a real contrast to the sex on the screen! There's also "An Intimate Relationship" – which has a sexy spoken part in English – and the hippy/trippy guitar/flute theme "Jeunes Filles Impudiques", with a few sex sounds in the background! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Limited to 500 copies.)

VariousAndy Votel Presents Brazilika – Non Stop Subtropical Psychedelia From The Vaults Of Brazil's Som Livre & RGE ... CD
Far Out (UK), 2008. New Copy ... $8.99 16.99
The hippest installment so far in the Brazilika series – a mad mix of musical styles from Finders Keepers mainman Andy Votel – all in a freaky, funky, fuzzy blend of sounds! The tracks here are much grittier than the work we're used to hearing from the Far Out label – as Votel's dug through the 60s and 70s vaults of RGE/Som Livre Records to come up with rare Brazilian rock, funk, and other heavy styles from back in the day! As with Votel's reissues on Finders Keepers, there's a sound here that's informed by beathead record collecting – a love of older grooves directed by current musical developments – all with a definite ear for the wilder side of the sound spectrum. Most tracks have a pretty heavy groove – and the styles run from psychedelic rock through Tropicalia-inspired tunes, to post-bossa, Bahian sounds, and more. Titles include "Funga Funga" by Trio Soneca, "Careta" by Betinho, "Modulo Lunar" by Os Brazoes, "Terra Livre" by Abilio Manoel, "Os Bichos" by Trio Soneca, "De Vera" by Novos Baianos, "Ciladas" by Pery Ribeiro, "Se Voce Pensa" by Moraes Moreira, "Flores Belas" by Tim Maia, "1974" by Gerson Conrad & Zeze Motta, "Gamboa" by Brazilian Octopus, "Deixe Entrar Um Pouco D'Agua No Quintal" by Os Mutantes, "Periscopio" by Azimuth, and "Gotham City" by Os Brazoes.

Sinecure/Now Again, 1960s/1970s/1980s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $7.99 17.98
An incredible companion to the book Enjoy The Experience – and like that volume, a set that's filled with gems from the obscure sides of the American recording industry – vanity and privately pressed records that are plenty darn groovy, and pretty darn funky in all the right spots! The book is a painstakingly researched collection – and this soundtrack is just as carefully put together – with a great range of styles – heavily steeped in freaky funk, upbeat boogie, acid folk, offbeat psych, and trippy jazz! The range of sounds is really wonderful – with a feel that's somewhere between a Trunk Records or Finders Keepers compilation – and titles include "Intro (Excerpt)" by The Muzzy Band, "Spacing Out" by The Invaders, Diska Limba Man" by Medico Doktor Vibes, "Music Slave" by Jade, "White Panther" by Arcesia, "Never Come Back" by Boa, "ESP Switch" by Michael Farneti, "6.4 = Makeout" by Gary Wilson, "Just To Say Goodbye" by Russ Saul, "Cadillac Woman" by Stephen David Heitkotter, "Piledriver" by Dennis The Fox, "Old Time Feeling" by Circuit Rider, and "666" by Ray Torske. CD
(A great 2CD package – like a mini-hardcover book like package – with 44 pages of notes and photos!)

✨✧ Electric PrunesComplete Reprise Singles ... CD
Reprise/Real Gone, Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A comprehensive anthology of The Electric Prunes singles for Reprise – including work produced by David Axelrod, all in their original mono mixes – and a long overdue collection! We've been spinning and loving the Electric Prunes albums for so long, we're actually quite guilty of overlooking just how succinctly and sharply brilliant they are as a singles band! That alone makes this strong set on Real Gone worthwhile, but the tight, punchy mono mixes seal the deal! All of the great singles are here – from their early garage-psych gems to the trippier, though still tightly-grooving tunes towards the end of the decade – plus a groovy radio spot for the Vox Wah Wah Pedal! Includes "Ain't It Hard", "I Had Too Much To Dream (Last Night)", "Luvin'", "Dr. Do-Good", "The Great Banana Hoax", "Credos", "Shadow", "Violent Rose", "Sell", "Love Grows", "The Adoration", "Help Us (Father, Our King)", "Finders Keepers, Losers Weepers", "Sanctus", ""Flowing Smoothly" and more. 24 tracks in all.
