✨✧ VariousAll Killer – Finders Keepers 1 to 20 – Mixed By The Gaslamp Killer ... CD
Twisted Nerve/B- Music, Late 60s/1970s/2009. Used ... $9.99
An excellent mix of some of the best lost folk funk, tripped out psychedelia, 60s & 70s material from the global underground from Finders Keepers – but far cooler than a mere sampler – an aurally exciting blend of the material courtesy of the Gaslamp Killer! For this excellent set, eclectic LA DJ guru Gaslamp Killer was given the keys to the Finders Keepers vaults to craft an evocative set of his own, from the sounds found on the first 20 Finders Keepers releases. Turkish rock from Ersen, wild soundtrack grooves from Valerie & Her Week Of Wonders composer Lubos Fiser, instrumental French funk from Jean Claude Vannier, and so much more! All Killer has 12 tracks that are each expertly blended suites of Finders Keepers releases, including "The Sermon" by Lubos Fiser, "Les Garde Volent Au Secours Du Roi" and more by Jean Claude Vannier, "Dance Of The Vampires" by Vampires Of Dartmoore, "Gunese Don Cicegim" by Ersen, "Les Electroniciens" by Bruno Spoerri, "Zeytinyagi" by Mustafa Ozkent, "Europa" by by Susan Christie and more.

✨✧ AcanthusLe Frisson Des Vampires ... CD
Finders Keepers (UK), 1971. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A strange, eerie psychedelia and prog steeped soundtrack to the Jean Rollins French vampire film Le Frisson Des Vampires – played by the group Acanthus – a great little set of evocative, stripped down macabre instrumentals and trippy bits of dialogue! Finders Keepers describes the sound by comparing it to lynchpin combos of early prog as affected by "a 1000 year old acid infused blood transfusion", and guess what – that's perfect! Guitar melodies spun very loosely and eerily rolling along with improved bits and creepy sound sound effects – but it never veers into shlocky horror movie music, it's psych-steeped instrumental rock, played in a spooky style. The music is great, and the bits of dialogue (in English) is totally priceless! Includes Funerailles Des Vampires", "Le Frisson Des Vampires", "La Chateau", "Wedding Party (Angoisse Temporelle)", "Occupied Clock", "Who Are You?", "Blood-Cups", "Isabelles Demise", "Night Excursion", "Isa's Ceremony", "Flightless Bird", "The Shiver Of The Vampires", "Envol Vers La Folie" and more. 27 tracks in all – the entire, previously unreleased soundtrack!

Susan ChristiePaint A Lady ... CD
B- Music/Finders Keepers, Late 60s. Used ... $19.99
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 CianiLixiviation – Ciani/Musica Inc 1969 to 1985 ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $19.99
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. New Copy 2 LPs ... $22.99
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)... $22.99
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 ... $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)".

Gokcen KaynatanGokcen Kaynatan ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), Late 60s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $22.99
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".

Andrzej KorzynskiPossession ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), 1981. New Copy ... $22.99
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".

Zdenek LiskaIkarie XB-1 ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), 1963. New Copy ... $22.99
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. Titles include "The Tiger's Breath", "Dark Star", "Do Not Eat The Fruit", "EVA Will Teach You", "Surveillance On Standby/Alpha Centauri", "Sunflower For A New Star", "Voyage To The End", and "The White Planet".

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

Graeme Miller & Steve ShillMoomins – Winter Wunderland Edition ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), 1982. New Copy ... $24.99
The Moomins comics have delighted the world for generations – but fewer folks have seen the early 80s Moomins TV show – which is a masterpiece of felt-based, stop-motion animation! And while the images on the screen are amazing, the music for the program is equally great – spare, slow electronic numbers that have a beautifully playful vibe, but something of a dark edge too – maybe much more in the mode of more whimsical underground electronic work from the early 70s than you'd guess from the date of the show! The program was animated in Poland, and some of these tunes have a style that's similar to the coolest Polish electronic sound library material we've stocked over the years – although the musicians themselves were actually part of the post punk scene in Leeds. Titles include "Creepers", "Piano Waltz", "Leaving Moomin Valley", "Hobgoblin's Hat", "Traveling Theme", "Midwinter Rites", "Woodland Band", and "Comet Shadow". LP, Vinyl record album

Graeme Miller & Steve ShillMoomins – Woodland Band (parade)/Observatory (short) (limited felt sleeve) ... 7-inch
Finders Keepers (UK), 1974. New Copy (pic cover)... $24.99
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

MiquelaI A De Sars ... LP
Ventadorn/Finders Keepers (UK), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
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".

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

Amazing sounds from the groovy Sam Spence – an American composer who worked heavily in Germany during the 60s and 70s, turning out some really cosmic sounds in the process! The cuts here are a wonderful mix of funky sound library grooves and more electronic numbers – a beautiful blend that makes the record come off with a lot more charm than other compilations of this nature – a balance between striking and sensitive moments that's really great! Some of the moogier cuts get very wild – offbeat, spacey, and pretty darn hip – and the straighter grooves offset these nicely by swinging back to more familiar Finders Keepers territory! Titles include "Psycho 2", "Sylvia", "Ice Glaze", "Flying Low", "Electric Texas", "The Searcher", "Frog Spawn", "Water World", "Swamp", "Sunken Ship", "Cosmetic 2", "World As One", "MS 11", "Ringo", and "Industrial Science".

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".

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

Sarolta ZalatnaySarolta Zalatnay ... CD
B- Music/Finders Keepers, 1970s. Used ... $13.99
Fuzzy, funky, and freaky – some really incredible work from Hungarian rocker Sarolta Zalatnay – an artist with a groove that's a lot easier to get than her name! The work here was recorded in collaboration with 70s groups Locomitiv GT, Metro, Omega, and Skorpio – all of whom are pretty darn funky at times – with an approach that mixes heavy drums, rumbling bass, and lots of fuzzy guitars – making for a fair bit of break-heavy tracks on the set. Topped with Sarolta's vocals, the sound is somewhere between Betty Davis on her classic Just Sunshine albums and Gal Costa at the end of the 60s – but also a fair bit more exotic too, given the Hungarian language, and the use of Eastern phrasing on some of the tunes. And if you're scratching your head because you've never heard of Zalatnay before, don't worry – because the package features some great notes on her sordid career from the 70s onward – even though the music alone here should be more than enough to win you over! Titles include "Ne Hidd El", "Itt A Nyar", "Egyser", "Rogos Uton", "Zold Borostyan", "Munanyag Almok", "The Freak", "Move Over", "Oh Ha Milliomos Lennek", and "Fekete Beat". CD

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!

Finders Keepers (UK), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily 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!

Finders Keepers (UK), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily 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".

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

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. Titles include "Funny Feeling", "Mr London", "Andy Warhol", "Belladonna", "The Notice Is Notice", "Take It Easy", and "TBSF". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Denis WiseWize Music ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ VariousPomegranates – Persian Pop, Funk, Folk, and Psych Of The 60s & 70s ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Bright Persian psychedelic pop, funk, soul and boundless grooves from the 60s & 70s – one of the greatest compilations yet from Finders Keepers! Many of the tunes are actually classics of the era's Iranian scene, if wildly fresh and new our ears, while others are quite obscure all around, but all of it is fresh and exciting exotic pop that we're thrilled to see collected. The sounds draw from the creatively fertile period when traditions were combined in music all around the world – with hypnotic eastern raga strings blended with global funk and jazz, bursting pop tunefulness and both meditative and instantly gratifying melodies of myriad influences, borderline disco grooves and beyond. Exciting stuff! 16 tracks in all: "Helelyos'" by Zia, "Biya Bar-e Safar Bandim" by Mohammad Nouri, "Talagh" by Googoosh, "Miravi" by Soli, "Kavir-e Del" by Marjan, "Naz Kardanet Vaveyla" by Sima Bina", "Sharm-e Boos-e" by Ramesh, "Cheshm-e Man" by Dariush 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

✨✧ GoogooshGoogoosh ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), Early/Mid 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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! Includes "Shekayat", "Talagh", "Mano Tou", "Pishkesh", "Mano Gonjishkaye Khooneh", "Digeh Geryeh Delo Van Menikoneh", "Gharibe Ashena" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Andrzej KorzynskiOrwo Years – Music From Movies By Celino Bleiweiss (Absage An Viktoria/Die Schwarze Muhle/Ich Will Nach Hause/Wilhelm Meisters Theatralische Sendung) ... CD
GAD (Poland), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $16.99
Polish composer Andrzej Korzynski has given us some great soundtracks over the years – including a few reissued by the legendary Finders Keepers – and here, Korzynski's catalog is further expanded by a host of soundtrack material done for German director Celino Bleiweiss! The music here was recorded at a time when Andrzej had returned to Poland, but still held onto all the musical discoveries he'd made in southern Europe – especially a great way of mixing electric elements with darker acoustic sounds – often swirling things together, so that it was a bit hard to tell which was which! A number of these tracks have a spacious keyboard sound with an undercurrent of gentle funk – a bit like some of our favorite early 70s sounds from French soundtrack composer Francois De Roubaix – while others are spookier and darker, and maybe more in the territory of the films reissued by Finders Keepers. CD features 31 tracks in all – music from the films Absage An Viktoria, Die Schwarze Muhle, Ich Will Nach Hause, and Wilhelm Meisters Theatralische Sendung. CD

VariousLet The Good Times In – Sunshine, Soft, & Studio Pop 1966 to 1972 ... CD
Teensville (Australia), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
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.

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. New Copy ... $12.99
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.

✨✧ CaliforniansEarly Morning Sun – 60s Harmony Pop Produced By Irving Martin ... CD
Teensville, Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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
