CrashCrash ... LP
MC Wifon/GAD (Poland), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99 36.98
An overlooked Polish fusion combo from the 70s – one who recorded around the same time as Laboratorium and Extra Ball, but never got as much recognition on our side of the iron curtain! This album definitely lives up to the group's name – as the sound comes crashing in with a great blend of keyboards, trumpet, and saxes – nicely sharp and rhythmic, but never overdone – so that the group is able to find an organic flow, and avoid any cliches of the more rockish fusion world. Players include Zbigniew Cwojda on trumpet, Juliusz Mazur on piano and keyboards, Wladyslaw Kwasnicki on alto and soprano, and Stanislaw Zybowski on guitar – and titles include "Nite Sprite", "Akelei", "Trzy Po Cztery", "Baraka Sasa", and "Kakadu".

✨✧ Electronic DivisionElectronic Division ... CD
Polskie Nagrania/GAD (Poland), 1986. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
80s electronic sounds from Poland – a record that's maybe slightly warmer than some of the cold wave underground of the decade, but not by much – and which is almost all instrumental, giving the whole thing a relatively timeless appeal! As you might guess from the image of the old PC on the cover, the electronics have a basic, early sort of digital vibe – and production is nicely understated too, so that even if a tune might be catchy, it's got a bit more edge than anything commercial that was coming from the west at the time! There's lots of early Sheffield modes at play here – and titles include "Wypij To", "Smakujesz Inaczej", "Szukam Sladu", "Dotykanie", and "Zrob Wsystko Bym". CD

Jerzy Grunwald & En FaceSennym Switem (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Pronit/GAD (Poland), 1975. New Copy ... $7.99
Jerzy Grunwald looks a bit like a Polish Ziggy Stardust on the cover, and there's definitely some glammy touches on the album – but those are also mixed with some warmer touches from the En Face group, who back things up with a few acoustic touches, and sometimes bring some great harmony vocals to the proceedings! The whole thing's a real surprise from the Polish scene of the 70s – with production that almost has some sunny Cali touches, and an approach that's different than some of the heavier, proggier work of the period. Titles include "Memorial", "A Cherry Branch", "Man For Years", "You Came From Nowhere", "Our Horoscope", and "A Little Dreaming Will Do No Harm". CD features bonus tracks – "Ten Srebrzysty Patak" – and raw master tape versions of "Prelude" and "Memorial". CD

Piotr HertelW Sloncu I W Deszczu ... CD
GAD (Poland), 1979. New Copy ... $7.99
A selection of work for a Polish TV show at the end of the 70s – music that's partly in a familiar sound library mode, but which also has some great sound library touches too – a nice sense of variety that really makes for an overstuffed set! Some of these tracks are clearly scene-setting instrumentals, but some others are material that was performed by groups that would appear on the screen – and there's some very nice Rhodes-heavy moments on the collection, in styles that are unusual, and which move past the more familiar crime/cop modes of the 70s. The whole thing is a great testament to the overlooked soundtrack skills of Piotr Hertel – and the set features 20 tracks in all, with notes in both English and Polish! CD

Jazz QZivi Se Divi – Live In Bratislava 1975 ... CD
GAD (Poland), 1975. Used ... $18.99
Genius live work from Jazz Q – one of the most important groups on the Eastern European scene of the 70s – heard here in a previously unissued performance! The music here is even more electrifying than that on any of the full albums issued by Jazz Q – as it's got a more freewheeling, open-ended style – one that definitely shows the group's love of and inspiration from the groundbreaking work of Herbie Hancock and John McLaughlin in the 70s! The tracks spin out with stellar solos on both Fender Rhodes and guitar – still with echoes of the group's rock roots, but plenty jazzy overall – really showing the Jazz Q shift at the time, with a dexterity that's simply mindblowing in this spontaneous setting. Only a few of the cuts have vocals, and most are long instrumentals – with titles that include "Sanctuary", "Stratus", "Lonesom", "Tun", "Freedom Jazz Dance", "Zivi Se Divi", and "Mlyn". CD

Koman BandContinuation (with bonus tracks) ... CD
GAD (Poland), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $16.99 18.99
The cover bills this one as having "stunningly rich Rhodes and brass driven cuts" – and we couldn't agree more, as the group features loads of sweet keyboards from leader Janusz Koman, set up in funky orchestrations with plenty of horns! The approach is a mixture of fusion and more focused jazz-rock – the latter showing up on the album's vocal cuts, which are all in Polish, but have this really universal appeal – no doubt because the rhythms are so great, and the presence of all that Fender Rhodes just makes everything sound that much more sweet! Other players in the group are noted, but the booklet features lots of other details in Polish and English – for titles that include "Okno Ciemnych Spraw", "Continuation", "Korbol", "Dom Zlej Dziewczyny", and "W Kraju Milczenia" – plus bonus radio tracks "Raga" and "Mucha Tse Tse".

Krzysztof KomedaMam Tu Swoj Dom/Ubranie Prawie Nowe ... CD
GAD (Poland), 1963. New Copy ... $18.99 22.99
Two very early soundtracks from legendary Polish modernist Krzystof Komeda – both very different than his 60s work for Roman Polanski, but equally striking overall! The work for Mam Tu Swoj Dom is performed on short tracks handled by different instrumental groupings – with piano, flute, and bass often dancing around in these really spare but lovely ways – melodic, but very blue-tinged too – on titles that have the instrumentation of chamber jazz, but a much more personal, very poetic sort of quality – very vivid, even without the images on the screen. There's a similar feel to the music for Ubranie Prawie Nowe, but handled with different instrumentation – tunes are often a bit longer, and make use of woodwind interplay at a level that's as spare as on the first film, but with a quality that's almost painter-like at times, and which expands in instrumentation as the soundtrack moves on. This is the first time we've heard the music for either film – and they're presented here in a great edition, with notes in both English and Polish. CD

Wojciech KonikiewiczFree Funk Trio – Live At Rura 1982 ... CD
GAD (Poland), 1982. Used 2 CDs ... $9.99
A very cool combo who definitely live up to the promise of the title of the album – a group that's funky, but also in a relatively free way too – not avant jazz, but open to plenty of new ideas – which are often spun out over long tracks with a very chunky approach to rhythm! The group might well be a precursor to later combos like The Bad Plus or Medeski Martin & Wood – and definitely serve as a bridge between the style of those famous groups, and earlier funky fusion styles of the 70s – as the trio here are never slick or overly tight, yet still manage to groove – but often with a nice sort of edge. Leader Wojciech Konikiewicz handles the keyboards, with Mietek Jurecki on bass guitar and Jacek Ratajczyk on drums – on long live tracks that include "Waiting For M", "Blues For Mr Leszek", "Klimacik", "Wroclow Love Stomp", "Triplet Ritual", and "All That Punk Funk Jazz".

Wojciech KonikiewiczMuzyka Nowej Przestrzeni ... CD
GAD (Poland), 1993. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99
Really cool work from Polish musician Wojciech Konikiewicz – presented here with a title that means "music of new space" – and which represents a stunning shift into ambient territories after earlier work in rock and jazz! The music is as dark as the image on the cover – often lots of brooding low tones that have a more sinister vibe than some of the ambient experiments from the other side of the iron curtain at the time – maybe slightly in the mode of some of Brian Eno's music in the Thursday Afternoon generation, but also with some traces of more serious, academic explorations as well. The work was created with three different synthesizers and a bit of reverb – all recorded live, with titles that include "Ischri", "Theo", "Nox Atra", "Aniolowie W Burzy", and "Mistyczne Swiatlo". CD features both volumes 1 and 2 of the original releases! CD

GAD (Poland), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $18.99 22.99
Totally groovy sounds from a top-level Polish cop show in the 70s – one that certainly didn't make it to our screens back in the day, but which definitely had a soundtrack to match some of the best American programs of the time! In fact, the style here is maybe more late 60s/early 70s than the actual dates might imply – with lots of elements that you'd hear in work from Lalo Schifrin, Quincy Jones, and some of their contemporaries – including lots of surprisingly strong jazz elements, mixed in with the fuller orchestrations, funky rhythms, and more electric moments! There's a bit of wordless vocalization at times – but most cuts here are instrumental, and plenty darn great throughout – a real discovery to our American ears – even though the show was one of the biggest Polish TV programs at the time. The CD features a whopping 38 tracks in all, with hefty notes in both Polish and English – and the whole thing may well be one of the grooviest Gad Records projects to date! CD

A great celebration of the rich career of Polish soundtrack and sound library composer Andrzej Korzynski – a package issued on the 80th birthday of the artist, and which features well-collected tracks from four decades of recording, plus some unreleased material too! Korzynski's been championed in recent years for his unusual, offbeat sounds – and here, those qualities are mixed with groovier elements too – with a vibe that's almost like some of the best work from French soundtrack maestro Francois DeRoubaix – who had a similarly great ear for electronic bits, odd instrumental flourishes, and other compelling elements that really keep things interesting! The package features 30 tracks in all, with a really lively combination of styles and elements – supported by full notes in English and Polish. CD

GAD (Poland), 1996. New Copy ... $16.99 18.99
A spare, electric soundtrack from Andrzej Korzynski – done for a mid 90s film directed by Andrzej Wada, and featuring lots of keyboards played by Korzynski himself! The music isn't as wild as some of Andrzej's previous records, but there's a nice sense of variety on the tracks – which are usually very spare, sometimes spooky, and often have added keyboards from Jerzy Suchocki! At times, these strange voices come through the mix – maybe dialog from the film, maybe the sound of spirits in the background – amidst titles that include "Balkon", "Chaos", "Samotnosc", "Wies", "Modlitwa", "Dzigi 1", "Pycha I Bogactwo", and "Jaka Jestes Piekna 2". CD features five bonus tracks too! CD

Henryk KuzniakDzieciol ... CD
GAD (Poland), 1970. New Copy ... $16.99
An overlooked Polish soundtrack from the start of the 70s – scored for a comedy, but put together with a huge range of unusual and striking sounds! The record begins with a catchy theme – the sort that you'd hear in a Neil Simon comedy a few years later – but by track three, things have already moved into these really noisy electronics, before shifting back to a processed harmonica theme, moody mellow trumpet lines, jazzier bits, and other really amazing sounds! Composer Henryk Kuzniak claims to have thought about his work in terms of color, not notes or melody – and you can definitely hear that on the record – as each track is almost a mini painting in sound, often with some unusual processing to make familiar sounds very unusual. There's a few straighter, groovier themes in the mix – which balances things out in a really great way – and titles include "Bede Tego Niedlugo Potrzebowal", "Makrele W Tomacie", "Nie Mam O Kogo Byc Zazdrosny", "Ja Sobie Wypraszam Pani Misko", and "Grajmy W To".

Kwintet Barowy (Jerzy Milian/Jan Ptaszyn Wroblewski)Do Widzenia ... CD
GAD (Poland), 1959. New Copy ... $7.99
Early work from the Polish jazz scene of the postwar years – by a cool combo that features two key players who'd really explode in decades to come! The group features excellent work on tenor and flute from Jan Ptaszyn Wroblewski, and vibes from Jerzy Milian – both two of our favorite players from the Polish jazz scene of the 60s and 70s, already sounding great here in the company of pianist Benon Hardy – on a series of recordings that have lots of other modern jazz elements in the mix! The other players aren't listed, but there's clearly drums and bass at play – plus occasional other touches – and the style is maybe a bit like Swedish modern of the 50s, but with some deeper tones from Wroblewski, and a hard-hitting vibes approach that's a bit like that of the Belgian player Fats Sadi. Titles include "Bandoska In Blue", "Do Widzenia", "Maracca", "Moto Cross", "Medium Swing", "Figlarny Mosorozec", and "Milion Zlotych". CD

Jerzy MilianOrkiestra Rozrywkowa Pritv W Katowicach – Znak Wodnika (with bonus tracks) ... CD
GAD (Poland), Late 70s. New Copy ... $16.99 18.99
Some of the funkiest work we've ever heard from Polish vibist Jerzy Milian – a series of late 70s recordings that have him working with a larger ensemble in a very groovy mode! The approach is sound library or soundtrack funk at some points, but also almost gets a bit disco at others – with Jerzy using his vibes like Vince Montana in Philly! There's wordless vocals on most tracks, and other instrumentation includes keyboards and clavinet, tenor, alto, and flute – mostly with a tight ensemble feel overall. At points, the music is in the spirit of the funky big band work on MPS Records from the early 70s – and titles include "Sobowtor", "W Zaulku", "Spiew Langusty"," Robot Autokrata", "Komu Moge Dac Swoj Czas", "Samum", and "Solaris II". CD features the bonus tracks "Nikt Inny", "Odtrutka Na Funky", "Farnadole", and "Dialog O Polnocy". CD

Arston/GAD (Poland), 1990. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
There may be no movie soundtrack, as the title proclaims – but this Polish group comes across with a real Breakfast Club look on the cover! That style is maybe also a good indication of the music, too – as there's a lot going on here that would be right at home in the British scene of the early 80s – tuneful electronic pop elements, maybe served up with a bit more late 80s instrumentation overall, especially on the rhythms – with vocals from a variety of singers, both male and female. Lyrics are in English at points, and these guys are clearly part of a Poland ready to open up and change themselves – shaking off the grey past of the Soviet era, and trying to reach out and join up with the highlights of the Anglo pop world. Titles include "Studio Wars", "Pri Mary", "On The River", "Real Education", "Can't Get Your Love", and "Sir Nobody". LP, Vinyl record album

GAD (Poland), Early 70s. New Copy ... $16.99
A really cool Polish group from the early 70s – one who only issued a 7" EP at the time, but who finally get their full due here, in a set that brings together other material recorded for Polish radio! The approach is great – a bit in the folk funk mode, with a female singer in the lead, next to well-placed basslines, and nice use of flute next to guitar and keyboards – all pretty light, so that the rhythms and the vocals take the core, often with jazzy inflections that are mighty nice! The tracks features vocals from Maria Fiegel on the first half, and Zofia Borca on the second – and the package features 14 titles in all, with tracks that include "A Gdy Leci Glaz", "Troche Wiosny Troche Lata", "To Tak Jak Sen", "Zawse Humor Mam", "Ogon Pawie", "Musisz W Drodze Byc", and a really great cover of "Whole Lotta Love".

Polskie Nagrania/GAD (Poland), 1981. New Copy ... $18.99 22.99
The final album from SBB – a bit different than their trio efforts of the 70s, but equally wonderful all the way through! There's a slightly more spacious vibe going on here – symphonic prog, but without the symphony – just an expanded quartet lineup that uses their extra guitar to really great effect, making the record explode with a new sense of color that the group didn't have on previous efforts. As usual, there's' one side-long cut – the title track – and that one really opens up in a rich array of keyboard lines, really showing the group at their height. Titles include "Strategia Pulsu","Moja Ziemio Wysniona", "Trojkat Radoscie", and "Memento Z Banalym Trtyptykiem". CD features bonus tracks – a live improvisation on "Memento", a live version of "Wish", and the original demo of the title track. CD

The group is a tight trio formation – with strong drums, sharp guitar, and a great mix of bass, piano, and especially nice moog from singer Jozef Skrezek – whose vocals often really hang back, so that the keyboards and guitar can take center stage, as the group soar to the skies with boundless creative energy! Titles include the 20 minute "Wolnosc Z Nami", which takes up all of side two – plus "Blysk", "Na Pierwszy Ogien"," Ballada O Pieciu Glodnych", and "Nowy Horyzont". CD features four bonus tracks – "Ciecie", "Waldie", "Wyjatek", and "Na Pierwszy Ogien (full version)". CD

GAD (Poland), Late 90s. New Copy ... $16.99 18.99
The cover's almost got a 4AD sort of look to it – and that might be a good way to approach the music of Jozef Skrzek here – as it hits on the more meditative side of that British label in the second half of the 80s – as Jozef creates all these spare, keyboard-heavy instrumentals that have a nice current of darkness! In a more mainstream setting, the work might have gotten too polished and sentimental – but there's a nicely personal touch here, as of Skrzek is working post-cold wave, warming things up slightly, but never losing too much of that individual quality that would make things stand out. The CD features 20 tracks from the original recording – plus three bonus tracks too! CD

New work from legendary Polish prog group SBB – working here with added orchestrations, at a level that really helps bring back their music with a heck of a lot of force! SBB always had a wonderfully complex quality to their sound – different than some of their Western European contemporaries, but with an equal ability to hit harder, more straightforwardly rocking moments when needed – which here make for a great blend with the larger orchestrations give them support – adding new currents of drama, and making this older group sound a heck of a lot better than you might expect! Titles include "Ciecie", "Freedom With Us", "Memeto Z Banalnym Tryptykiem", "Going Away", "Odlot", and "Walkin Around The Stormy Bay". CD

Never-issued material from Polish saxophonist Jan Ptasyn Wroblewski – material recorded at the end of the 70s for Polish Radio, done in a small combo mode that's a real back to basics change, after some of his larger projects of the decade! The setting is nice and lean – Jan on tenor, with guitar, bass, and drums – very much in the mode of an old Sonny Stitt session, with maybe some of the same production touches that Stitt was getting on his 70s records for Muse. Jan's great on both the ballads, which open up with a soulful vibe that's really beautiful – and the more swinging tunes, which are very much in a post-bop mode, and occasionally pick up some nice modal currents. The use of guitar by Marek Blizinski makes for some very different chromatic elements on the set – and titles include "Bebopem Go", "Slupy Milowe", "Rower Z Debu Czyli Dabrower", and "Czarna Chandra From Calcutta". CD features three bonus tracks – "Ciruka Z Rurki", "Dykteryka", and "Ugrysciorba". CD

Supraphon/GAD (Poland), 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A rare gem from the legendary Gustav Brom – the Czech bandleader you might know for his famous records in the 60s, or his moon-trip set for MPS – sounding equally groovy here on this Supraphon album from 1976! There's a slight touch of electricity in the mix – some specially nice Fender Rhodes and moog, which are layered in with Brom's wonderful formation of horns in the group – this shifting palette of trumpet, tenor, trombone, and reed elements – used at a level that's right up there with the best MPS groups of the time, and some of the Clarke Boland Big Band records too! But this time around, the rhythms are maybe even more powerful than usual – downright funky at some key moments, and plenty groovy at all the rest – and the tracks are longer, and often allow for some deeper passages than usual for Gustav – although to be fair, his sounds are often pretty darn deep! Titles include "Bounty", "Festival", "Polymelomodus", "Romance Nad Mzi", "Sedimentace", and a sweet cover of Steely Dan's "Do It Again". Great reissue – with excellent sound, detailed notes, and a bonus alternate take of "Do It Again". CD

The group are in amazing form throughout – stretching out on four long tracks that bristle with the strong imagination of keyboardist Martin Kratochvil – who uses the electric piano to spin out long lines that clearly draw inspiration from Herbie Hancock and Chick Corea, but which at times maybe remind us a bit of Marc Moulin as well! The vibe is nicely spacious – similar to their albums of the time, but not as full fusiony either – and the rest of the group features Lubos Andrst on guitar, Vladimir Padrunek on bass, and Michal Vrbovec on drums.

Fantastic work from a saxophonist we're hearing here for the first time ever – Boguslaw Rudzinski, who recorded this set in 1963 – right at the same time Krzystof Komeda and his generation were opening up doors in modern jazz on the Polish scene! Rudzinski is maybe a bit more inside that Komeda or Tomas Stanko, but has this really great edge in his tenor, and a way of coming up with songs that manage to swing, but open up new ideas too – most penned here by pianist Krzystof Sadowski, an artist we do know and love – and who really shines in the group here alongside the guitar of Janusz Sidorenko, bass of Janusz Rafalski, and drums of Wladyslaw Jagiello. The material was recorded for a sound library, and never issued at the time – and Boguslaw plays a bit of clarinet, too – but with a modern Tony Scott sort of edge. Titles include "Casanova", "Messa", "Rockin Blues", "Epitex", "Silikonia", and "Unitron". CD

Polskie Nagrania/GAD (Poland), Late 70s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
The complete work of this very groovy Polish combo from the 70s – a duo that features work from the legendary Andrzej Korzynski, best known for his famous film work – stepping out here in a sweet set of moog and keyboard-heavy grooves! Had Arp Life been formed a few years earlier, they would have been turning out moog records – ala Hot Butter – but their style here is groovier, funkier, and filled with some of the growing shift in elements both in fusion, and in soul styles as the disco generation approached! The group are almost a precursor to some of the more spacey, cosmic clubby acts that were showing up in the Italian and Parisian scenes – and although they only issued two rare albums back in the 70s, this huge set features triple that material, thanks to a wealth of unissued radio sessions and other recordings. There are vocals on the tracks at times – but usually just chorus responses to the funky rhythms, riffing guitars, and keyboards – and the set features notes in Polish and English, and a whopping 67 tracks in all!

Polish fusion group Crash are joined by singer Grazyna Lobaszweka – a vocalist who does an amazing job of keeping up with the group's really dynamic energy! Not all tracks are vocal numbers – there's plenty of the group's excellent keyboard, saxophone, and guitar lines throughout – but the blend of lyrics and instrumentation makes for a really wonderful record, and Grazyna's got this style that's very much in the best 70s spirit of singers like Flora Purim or Urzula Dudziak – free-flowing, and very far past older modes of jazz vocals! Titles include "Senna Opowiesc Jana B", "Chociaz Niewiele Ale Zawsze", "W Jednej Chwili", "Niespokojny Duszek", and "Rysopis Na Wszelki Wypadek". CD features the bonus track "Lovers". CD

GAD (Poland), 1978. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really cool collection of work from Polish sound library talent Henryk Debich – all 70s material that was designed to evoke the feel of the modern city – including many tracks that were issued in a special cassette series for daily commuters! The material was recorded at the Polish Radio studios, and mixes groovy 70s elements with fuller orchestrations – some disco rhythms at points, mellower soundtrack touches at others – keyboards often stepping out strongly from the fuller arrangements in a way that's a bit like Italian or UK sound library material at the same time! Titles include "UFO", "Obsydian", "Marmyszka", "City", "Choral I Final", and "Perforowany Parmezan". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ EdenMiasto Szczesliwiych Ludzi – 1976 Polish Library Music From The WFDIF Vaults ... CD
GAD (Poland), 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A rare instrumental outing from Eden – a Polish trio that first began as a blues-rock group, then moved into progressive territory, before hitting a lighter folksier style – none of which really comes close to the vibe of this material from a rare sound library session in 1976! There's fusion elements in the mix at times – like tight drums and funky flute – but the record also has a wider palette of colors, too – quite a surprise, given that the group is just a trio – as they find ways to evoke some larger studio ensemble sounds from time to time. As with all the great titles in this series, there's detailed notes in both Polish and English – and titles include "Sen", "Dzungla", "Scherzo", "Eksperyment Nr 1", "Daleka Podroz", and "Male Inwencje".

GAD (Poland), Late 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Four long slices of electronic genius from Wladyslaw Komendarek – a Polish talent with techniques to rival some of the best British and American electronic experimenters from the decade before – but much less known, given that his music never got much circulation in the west! The album was created in Komendarek's own studio – on a variety of Roland, Korg, and Casio instruments – and the result is very dark and deep, almost like some project from the BBC Radiophonic Workshop! The pieces appear here for the first time – all submissions to Ars Electronica in 1989 and 1990 – and titles include "Komputerowa Krew", "Gasnaca Plazma", "Magowie Galaktycznego Czasu", and "Pobudzenie Ludzi Do Zycia Mowie Alfa".

GAD (Poland), 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An early moment of genius from Polish film composer Andrzej Korzynski – a cool 70s set that sparkles with all the wonderful sonic touches he can bring to his best work! There's a lot of familiar electronic elements in the mix – guitar, bass, keyboards, and even some moogy electronics – but they're used in styles that are different from more familiar cop/crime of the time, and sometimes with this sci-fi sort of darkness that really makes for a compelling soundtrack all the way through – especially when a warmer number comes into the mix, as on two great Fender Rhodes mellow cuts! Titles include the great Rhodes tracks "Marta 1" and "Marta 2" – plus "Czolowka", "Szosa", "Biuro", "Retropepekcja 1", "Wielki Uklad", and "Winda". CD features the bonus tracks "Fortepian" and "Projekcja". CD

GAD (Poland), 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Seminal funky rock from 70s Poland – recorded by a hard-jamming group who also had plenty of fusion in the mix! The guitars are clearly in the lead here – strutting out next to some tight and frenetic work on drums – but the album's also got a fair bit of keyboards too, including Fender Rhodes, clavinet, and minimoog – all dancing next to the guitars on the album's best tracks. There's a bit of vocalizing from time to time, but the album's really mostly an instrumental affair – one that's more on the rock side of the spectrum, but which has plenty to offer if you're a fan of harder-jamming European fusion from the time! Titles include "Oddech", "Taniec Bulibara", "Palamakia", "Janek", "Wladkowa Kolysanka", and "Garbusek". CD features a huge amount of bonus tracks from radio sessions – and titles include "Debiut Kety", "11 Traktow", "Renia", "Podroz", "Metaxa", "Jak Bylo Tak Bylo Aloe Bylo", and "Cierpiarz". CD

If you're looking for true 70s prog genius, you might well look no further than SBB – a Polish trio who cut records like this, to rival the bigger-known artists in the western European scene! The album's a masterpiece of jazz-inspired creation throughout – three long tracks, all filled with sharp changes in time and mood, and graced with these wonderfully strong solos on guitar, Fender Rhodes, and Hammond – all without sounding too over-indulgent to lose their way! There's a bit of vocals on the record, but the core appeal is the instrumentation, which is superb throughout – on titles that include "Pamiec W Kamien Wrasta", "Z Ktorych Krwi Krew Moja", and "W Kolysce Dloni Twych". CD features long bonus tracks – "Fos", "Toczy Sie Kolo Historii", and a live radio take of "Z Ktorych Krwi Krew Moja". CD

A very jazzy set of sound library tracks from Poland – done in a mix of fusion and prog that's similar to some of that nation's great groups of the 70s – maybe no surprise, given that the guitarist in the group had also performed with the rock act Breakout! Yet here, the style is jazzier – a nicely urban style of instrumentation that echoes some of the American fusion modes of the period – but recorded, almost in secret, in the studio of Polskie Radio – with a lineup that includes keyboard, guitar, saxes, bass, and drums. All titles were penned by guitarist Winicjusz Chrost – and titles include "Im Im Im", "Chrzante", "Luba Balu", "Ma Ma Ma", "Juz Kiedys To Bylo", "Bez Tego I Owego", and "Pradziadek". CD

Prepare to step into a musical world you might never experience otherwise – served up here in a whole host of Polish work from the end of the 60s and start of the 70s – music that runs the gamut from folk rock, to Sunshine Pop, to some of the groovier styles of the psychedelic generation! Lyrics are all in Polish, but these groups have clearly picked up a lot from the Anglo world – especially the American scene on the west coast – and given that the nation was still very much in the grip of the Soviet era, it's amazing how much freedom some of these guys got to let down their hair and do their thing! The package features notes in English throughout, with reproductions of album covers and other details – and the set features 20 tracks in all, with work by Piotr Pastor I Slonce, Portrety, Roszina Pastora, Wawele, No To Co, Trubadurzy, ST 44, Skaldowie, Grupa Boom, and others.

Pronit/GAD (Poland), 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Killer Hammond from Polish player Piotr Figiel – a player with a really wonderful sort of groove! The album's got a vibe that's halfway between the Hammond antics of Alan Hawkshaw and the freer lines of American jazzmen like Jimmy Smith or Charles Earland – augmented by other cool production touches at points, which gives the record a very groovy late 60s sort of Euro feel! The vocal group Bemibek sing these cool wordless vocals on the tune "Bit Of Spring Bit Of Summer" – and guitarist Dariusz Kozakiewicz adds a nice degree of fuzz to a few other tunes too – tripping out nicely with Piotr's very fluid lines on the Hammond! There's a bit of strings on a few numbers, bringing in a nice cinematic feel – and titles include "Prelude In E Minor", based on the same Chopin changes as Serge Gainsbourg's "Jane B" – plus "Never On Tuesday", "Breakfast At Midnight", "Away I'll Go", "Absence", and "Piece Of Space". CD features bonus tracks – long versions of "Skrawek Przestrzeni" and "Nieobecnosc". CD

Some of the warmest work we've ever heard from Polish film composer Andrzej Korzynski – definitely different than his quirkier sounds from early in the decade, and done for a TV show that was set in the Polish countryside in the 30s! There's bits of electronic elements mixed in with fuller strings and woodwinds – and Korzynski demonstrates a great sense of feeling throughout – a bit like some of the French soundtrack composers of the time, and their ability to create really moving, evocative passages in sound – but without some of the more cloying Hollywood styles. A few pieces here appeared in other series as well – and the set features 20 tracks that include "Tajemnice", "Wioska", "Jaskinia", "Zabawy Dzieci", "Mustang", "Cmentarz", and "Duchy". CD

GAD (Poland), 2019. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A more recent soundtrack from Polish composer Andrzej Korzynski – put together for a film by the son of his old partner, director Andrzej Zulawski – and in a way that continues their cinematic legacy from previous years! The roots of the music like in older Korzynski recordings, but the songs are transformed a fair bit – often in ways that are very electronic and beat-heavy – with a sci-fi dance sort of vibe, and these tuneful passages that are a bit of a contrast to some of the composer's earlier work. Yet as always with Korzynski, nothing is ever too mainstream or commercial – and in a way, these shorter songs almost seem to answer a more popular idiom with a more personal vision. Titles include "Rower", "Dziewczyna Zla", "Smyzcki", "Opetanie Drugie", "Temat Etniczny II", and "Komputer". CD2 features 12 more bonus tracks – from a few decades of cinematic collaborations between Korzynski and Zulawski – then conclosed with 8 more tracks from the 2015 soundtrack to the film Kosmos. CD

GAD (Poland), 1959. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Early work from the Polish jazz scene of the postwar years – by a cool combo that features two key players who'd really explode in decades to come! The group features excellent work on tenor and flute from Jan Ptaszyn Wroblewski, and vibes from Jerzy Milian – both two of our favorite players from the Polish jazz scene of the 60s and 70s, already sounding great here in the company of pianist Benon Hardy – on a series of recordings that have lots of other modern jazz elements in the mix! The other players aren't listed, but there's clearly drums and bass at play – plus occasional other touches – and the style is maybe a bit like Swedish modern of the 50s, but with some deeper tones from Wroblewski, and a hard-hitting vibes approach that's a bit like that of the Belgian player Fats Sadi. Titles include "Bandoska In Blue", "Do Widzenia", "Maracca", "Moto Cross", "Medium Swing", "Figlarny Mosorozec", and "Milion Zlotych". LP, Vinyl record album

Spacious fusion from 80s Poland – a nice little set that's got a vibe that's more laidback and flowing than some of the more jamming electric material of the 70s – which also seems to make things a bit more funky and soulful too! Many of the tracks start out in a nicely spare sort of way – finding the right energy, then building a groove – and working with instrumentation that's often much more in a 70s mode than some of the thinner electric elements that other fusion scenes were using elsewhere in the world! Zbigniew Lewandowski leads the group on drums and keyboards – and the rest of the lineup features Piotr Baron on tenor, Andrzej Olejniczak on soprano sax, Pawel Scieranski on guitar, Andrzej Przybeielski on trumpet, and both Mieczyslaw Jurecki and Krzysztof Scieranski on basses. Titles include "The Lowest", "Plagiat Blues", "Grota", "Dzwieki Z Czarnolasu", and "Szkice Jesienne". CD features bonus tracks "Freedom Jazz Dance" and "Jesienna Apasjonata". CD

Killer large group work from Polish jazzman Jerzy Milian – tracks recorded in East Berlin during the 70s, all with a style that mixes together the best modes of soundtrack funk with some of the groovier styles of the MPS big band scene! Milian's a vibist, but also has a great ear for larger charts – and these tunes really step out with full, forceful grooves – often a bit of electric bass at the core, to kick things up nicely – while the horns provide all these explosive colors up top! There's plenty of unusual sonic elements too – that great ear that made Milian such an important modern jazz musician in the 60s, still very much able to explore some of the farther reaches, even when keeping things groovy – as you'll hear here on a set of 16 tracks that include "Kung Tanza", "Mentro De Londres", "Carefree Guy", "Hausdrachen", "Tanz Des Schmiedes", "Woila", "Jerzy Und Gunter", and "Lauf Zur Kasse".

The players aren't listed, but the presentation is superb – a larger ensemble, but with standout solo moments on trumpet, alto, and flute – moving between tunes that have a lively, almost bossa nova vibe – and others with a gentler, warmer spirit. This set marks the first time the material has ever been issued away from the film – pulled from recently-located tapes – and titles include "Skok 1", "Bossa Nova 2", "Zniwa", "Molo", "Final", "Noc", "Walc", "Milosc", "Plaza", and "Pokoj".

Sweet fusion sounds from early 80s Poland – some really wonderful music cut under the leadership of guitarist Wieslaw Wilczkiewicz, who works here with to larger ensembles that are awash in reed lines, keyboards, and a bit of strings! The expanded format almost makes the music feel like soundtrack jazz at points – or at least that late 70s variety that was showing up in the US, as blacksploitation funk gave way to jazzy fusion – and like the best of that work, Wieslaw creates these cool tunes that are full of color, and very visual – never going too far over the top with any sort of rock-jamming fusion approach, and instead balancing the guitar lines in a nice way with the larger tonal backdrops. Titles include "Brass Key", "Ruda Magda", "In Blue Eyes", "Number Two Woman", "Pawelek", and "Varadero" – and a nice cover of "Hi Fly". CD

A new chapter in dub from Aswad – a set that points the way towards so many shifts that would take place in the music over the next few years – including the use of digital elements, and the rise of On-U Sound as well – all coming from crucial sounds created here on an Island Records classic! The set was mixed at Fallout Shelter, and has this really heady brew of deep dubby currents with occasional roots-inspired vocals – although those often get pretty abstracted into the mix. Instrumentation includes work from Vin Gordon on trombone, Brinsley Dan on guitar, Tony Gad on bass, and Drummie Zeb on drums – which often get this great splashy sound in the production. Titles include "Dub Fire", "Flikaflame", "Truth", "Bammie Blow", "Tuffist", "Shining Dub", "Zion I", "Natural Aggression", and "Ghetto In The Sky". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jose MancliereDoubout Pou Gade ... LP
JMD/Digger's Digest (France), Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
An album that's unlike anything else we've ever heard before – served up by a percussionist who spent the mid 70s touring the Caribbean and South Pacific, and who seems to have absorbed a globe's worth of rhythms in the process! The album's probably closest to a jazz fusion album – as there's no vocals, and instrumentation is a mix of electric and acoustic – with lots of keyboard lines throughout, peppered with guitar, alto, tenor, and trumpet – yet the rhythmic changes are very different from familiar fusion, as is the role of the instruments – which don't always get solo space, because they're all so tied to the groove! The whole thing's got an upbeat, freewheeling vibe – sounds filled with plenty of joy and rhythm – and titles include "Tipi Fanm", "Doubout Pou Gade", "Syka", "Marie Blanche", and "Vini Coute E Tann".

Bad BrainsBad Brains ... CD
Roir/ORG, 1981. New Copy ... $10.99 11.99
A hell of a record from one of the key groups who put the "hard" in the American hardcore scene – and a record that's so blisteringly intense, we still sometimes have to check to make sure we've got it on the right speed! Although Bad Brains may fly the flag of the Rastas, and definitely claim a reggae influence – the record manages to both blow away the work of the LA scene with its full-on hardcore tracks, and the UK scene with the group's few reggae-styled numbers. The original was only issued as a cassette, but that hasn't stopped it from being one of the key punk records of the time – and titles include "Sail On", "Don't Need It", "Attitude", "The Regulator", "Banned In DC", "Jah Calling", "Supertouch/Shitfit", "Leaving Babylon", "Fearless Vampire Killers", "I", "Big Take Over", "Pay To Cum", "Right Brigade", "I Luv I Jah", and "Intro".

Bad BrainsRock For Light ... LP
PVC/ORG, 1983. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 19.99 On September 24, 2021
A seminal album from The Bad Brains – and a set that forever shaped the sound of hardcore in the 80s! These guys are incredibly tight throughout – no doubt because of some previous work in jazz – but they never get overindulgent or too jammy at all – and instead deliver this blinding, blistering version of hardcore that really blows away some of the lesser-trained groups in the underground at the time – full of fire and fierce determination, with a force that's still being felt all these many years later! And despite their rasta roots, there's hardly any reggae-styled moments here – really just a few tracks amidst the triple-time numbers – and probably less than you'd find on an early 80s Clash album! Titles include "Banned In DC", "Sailin' On", "At The Movies", "Right Brigade", "Supertouch", "FVK", "Coptic times", "How Low Can A Punk Get", and "Big Takeover" – and oddly, the whole thing was produced by Ric Ocasek too!

Chet Baker/Jim Hall/Hubert LawsStudio Trieste (Japanese pressing) ... CD
CTI/King (Japan), 1982. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A great later date from CTI – proof that the label still had its magic going on well into the 80s! The session's a larger group effort headed up by Don Sebesky, and featuring key solos by Chet Baker, Jim Hall, and Hubert Laws – all of whom get plenty of room to do their thing on the album's longer tracks! Other players include Kenny Barron, Jack Wilkins, Jorge Dalto, George Mraz, and Steve Gadd – plus bit of added percussion – and although the group is large, the overall sound is relatively lean – spacious and airy, in keeping with Baker's best moments on records like these, and always sensitive enough to let Hall's gentle work on the strings of his guitar shine through nicely! Titles include "Malaguena", "Django", "Swan Lake", and "All Blues". CD

George BensonGood King Bad ... CD
CTI/Mosaic, 1975. Used ... $9.99
Sweet 70s funk from George Benson – an album that's a bit smoother than some of his earlier work, but still free from the commercial polish of his later hits! Maestro David Matthews is at the helm for this session – and most numbers have a full backing from players who include some of the best of the CTI/Kudi generation – including Ronnie Foster and Bobby Lyle on keyboards, Joe Farrell on flute, Fred Wesley on trombone, Eric Gale on rhythm guitar, Dave Friedman on vibes, and Steve Gadd on drums – who manages to kick in a nicely funky undercurrent, even on some of the mellower numbers. George's guitar is filled with warmly chromatic hues – gliding away nicely on titles that include the slow funky "Em", plus "Siberian Workout", "Shell Of A Man", "Hold On I'm Coming", "One Rock Don't Make No Boulder", and "Theme From Good King Bad".

A moving tribute to the late, great Serge Gainsbourg – served up in a mix of film and songs from his famous partner Jane Birkin! The set features a DVD directed by Jane – a 40 minute documentary filled with private images of Serge, laid out in a very loving tribute – and it's packaged with 2CDs' worth of music recorded with Serge in duet, or with lots of Gainsbourg help as both a writer or producer. Includes a rare alternate take of "Jane B" from 1968, plus "Rocking Chair", "Nicotine", "Exercice En Forme De Z", "Yesterday Yes A Day", "Ex Fan Des Sixties", "Di Doo Dah", "La Decadanse", "Baby Lou", "Quoi", "Et Quand Bien Meme", "Raccrochez C'Est Une Horreur", and lots more – including live versions of "Un Chose Entre Autres" and "Ces Petitis Riens" – and the song "La Gadoue" done with Les Negresses Vertes.

The great Ruben Blades sounds every bit as fantastic here as ever – soaring out with that magnificent voice that made his classic records so important in helping bring salsa to a wider market – and still working here with the best vintage approach to the music that he brought to his earliest recordings with Willie Colon! Bassist Robert Delgado handled the arrangements, and the group has this magnificent flourish on the horns – rising up with a sense of majesty that really matches Ruben's vocals, but never in a way that loses that down to earth charm that's always made the singer so able to touch so many hearts with his words. Titles include "Contrando", "Cobarde", "Canto Niche", "Do I Hear Four", "Mambo Gil", and "Paula C". CD

Ruben's vocals are wonderful – somehow even better with age, and still commanding all the power of the past – and the rest of the group has the right balance of jazzy horn work and Latin currents in the rhythms to really help set the mood. Titles include "Mambo Gil", "Watch What Happens", "Pennies From Heaven", "Paula C", "Do I Hear Four", "Cobarde", and "The Way You Look Tonight". CD

Lo BorgesMuito Alem Do Fim ... CD
Naphta (Brazil), 2021. New Copy ... $19.99
The great Lo Borges first rose to fame as part of Milton Nascimento's corner club in the early 70s – and damn, if he doesn't still sound great after all of these years – maybe even more true to his roots than Milton in more recent recordings! Lo's got a hell of a way with a tune, and he works here with his brother Marcio, another member of the old corner club – on songs that are really well-penned, and have this captivating quality even if you can't understand the language – maybe at a level that wants you to learn Portuguese, just so you can unlock the magic of the way the words go together! As with much of Borges' recordings in recent decades, the approach is rock-based, but in an understated way – completely unique, and really transcendent – on titles that include "Terra Da Gado", "Muito Alem Do Fim", "Muito Querida", "Copo Cheio", "Vida Ribeirao", and "Rainha".

✨✧ Oscar Castro NevesBossa Nova Mesmo ... CD
Philips/Universal (Japan), 1960. New Copy ... $13.99
A rare bossa treasure from the early years of the genre – a wicked session that features instrumentation by Oscar Castro Neves, and vocals by a host of different singers! The set's half vocal, half instrumental – and the latter feature some great sounds from Oscar's combo – a group that plays with a sound that's airy, yet well-arranged – similar to some of the 60s work by Eumir Deodato or Os Gatos, but with less instrumentation overall – which makes for an even cooler sound! There's some great flute in the group, which sounds great next to the acoustic guitar – and the instrumentation for the vocal tracks is equally nice, and still really revolutionary for the time. The album's a beautiful balance between complexity and understatement – truly showing the bossa ethos at its best – and titles include "Patinho Feio" and "Com Voce" by Lais, "Pela Luz Dos Olhos Teus" by Vinicius De Moraes, "Obrigada Meu Bem" by Sylvia Telles, "Tem Do De Mim" by Carlos Lyra, and "Menina Feia" by Lucio Alves – plus "Meditacao", "So Em Teus Bracos", "Bim Bom", and "Chora Tua Tristeza" by Castro Neves and his combo.

✨✧ Alice ColtraneKirtan – Turiya Sings ... CD
Impulse, 1982. New Copy ... $14.99 15.99
Some of the most spiritual sounds we've ever heard from Alice Coltrane – an obscure early 80s album that's done in a very meditative style – one that has the lady on both organ and vocals, working alongside a larger string section at times! The approach is a bit like some of Coltrane's most ambitious records for Impulse, but shows an even deeper journey into the spirit – filled with the ideas that Alice had been parceling out in smaller bits on her bigger label releases of the 70s, really given center stage focus here. The organ work alone is great – often very spare and minimal – working as flowing waves of sound that inform the vocals wonderfully. This material was originally only issued on cassette back in the early 80s, with very limited circulation – finally given full release! Titles include "Charanam", "Hara Siva", "Pranadhana", "Jagadishwar", "Rama Katha", and "Yamuna Tira Vihari". CD

Chick CoreaMy Spanish Heart ... LP
Polydor, 1976. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $9.99
Given that Chick Corea first got his start working in the New York Latin scene back in the 60s, the album's a bit of a return to his roots – even if the general theme here is Spanish, and not Afro-Cuban! The Corea Spanish Heart here is cast in some darker, more contemplative tones than more traditional Latin sides – but it borrows a wonderful array of modes from genres past – including bits of strings, percussion, and an overall more ambitious approach that sometimes shows up in Chick's piano work, or in the general construction of the tunes. The double-length set features a wide variety of Spanish-influenced numbers – played by Corea on acoustic piano and a variety of keyboards, with other players who include Don Alias, Jean Luc Ponty, Stanley Clarke, and Steve Gadd. Titles inclu de "Love Castle", "The Gardens", "Night Streets", "The Hilltop", "Armando's Rhumba", "Prelude To El Bozo", "Spanish Fantasy", and "My Spanish Heart". LP, Vinyl record album

Philips/Universal (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $13.99
Light and lively work from the great Gal Costa – a set that's light years away from her Tropicalia experiments of a decade before, but which is equally beautiful in its own sort of way! First off, Gal's vocals are amazing – more expressive and dynamic than in the early days – with a range of different emotions that comes off wonderfully, and without some of the heaviness of some of her contemporaries – such as Maria Bethania. The arrangements, while not entirely tropical, mix together jazz choro modes with more contemporary touches – providing a surprisingly strong, sparkling backdrop for the lyrics! The album features a nice remake of "India", plus the tracks "Forca Estranha", "Olha", "Meu Nome E Gal", "Balance", and "Samba Rasgado". CD

Al Di MeolaLand Of The Midnight Sun ... LP
Columbia, 1976. Near Mint- ... $29.99
A real 70s standout from guitarist Al Di Meola – and that's saying a lot, given the strength of most of his albums from the decade! The record's one that broke Al's talents out to so many different groups – yet never in a way that waters down his sound, nor dims his genius for a solo. Al plays a host of guitars – electric, and both six and 12 string acoustic – the latter of which are especially beautiful, and handled in a balance between European virtuoso modes, and some of the more rhythmic elements of the American fusion scene. Speaking of fusion, the other players on the date really help set the tone – Chick Corea on keyboards and piano, Barry Miles on Fender Rhodes and mini-moog, Stanley Clarke on bass, and both Steve Gadd and Lenny White on drums – each setting a different pace when they appear. Titles include "The Wizard", "Suite Golden Dawn", "Short Tales Of The Black Forest", and "Land Of The Midnight Sun". LP, Vinyl record album

A bit of a change for Dr John, but a nice one too – a set that's somewhat more mature than some of his Atco albums, but in a really nice way! The album features fuller backings from Claus Ogerman, but a core groove that's still nice and soulful – jazzy leanings from a combo that includes Dr John and Richard Tee on keyboards, John Troopea on guitar, Will Lee on bass, and Steve Gadd on drums – the latter of whom kicks in a nice groove at the bottom of most numbers, making a subtle undercurrent of older funk amidst the smoothness. Ogerman's backdrops are never too excessive, and help the Dr break out of some of his older modes in a good way – not rehashing the same New Orleans ideas, but taking them instead to cooler California territory – a bit in the way that Allen Toussaint was doing on his best mainstream work of the 70s. Titles include "Dance The Night Away With You", "Rain", "Wild Honey", "Street Side", "Snake Eyes", "Fire Of Love", and "City Lights". CD

Instead, the whole thing's this kind of pioneering mixture of organic sounds – still years ahead of its time, and put together with this sensibility that it took most folks decades to appreciate – every bit as revelatory on a first listen today as it must have been back in the 60s.

The band has a strong electric groove on their best moments – with kind of a choppy fusion groove, but one that's tight too – almost funky, at a level that's somewhere near cop/crime soundtrack work of the time.

The set begins with the side-long "Open & Close" – a righteous tune that's driven onward by lots of tight drums from Tony Allen – young, focused, and completely amazing here – while Fela delivers all these madly leaping electric piano lines amidst the super-sharp horn section – all moving instrumentally for many minutes before the vocals come into play!

A bold leap forward from Gilberto Gil – his first album recorded during the Tropicalia years, and an amazing collaboration with arranger Rogerio Duprat! The album's got a sound that really bridges scenes in Brazil – elements of older folkloric musics, folded with samba rhythms, folded again with psychedelic touches from Os Mutantes – who also help out on the set – all wrapped together with a sound so revolutionary, it still crackles with energy all these many years later! The sound and style are impossible to describe accurately, which is part of the charm of the record – and it's key placement as one of the prime musical texts of the Tropicalia years. Titles include "Marginalia II", "Luzia Luluza", "Pega A Voga, Cabeludo", "Frevo Rasgado", "Domingou", and "Domingo No Parque".

A massive package – the full rare Undertaker album from Derrick Harriott & The Crystalites, plus an insane amount of bonus tracks too! The core album is instrumental – a wicked set of rhythms from The Crystalites, a group who have a vibe that's right up there with the best of the late 60s Kingston scene, but a groove that's definitely their own – almost a razor's edge to some of the rhythms, as they snap through some excellent late rocksteady/early reggae modes! Harriott produced, and adds in all these cool touches and sounds that almost predate some of the later experimental modes of Lee Scratch Perry. Titles include "The Undertaker", "Bombshell", "Biafra", "The Bad", "Lady Madonna", "Fistful Of Dollars", "The Barefoot Brigade", and "Dr Who". 2CD set features 14 more instrumental tracks from The Crystalites – plus 27 more Harriott-produced numbers, including work by Rudy Mills, Junior Murvin, Keith & Tex, The Chuckles, Eric Donaldson, Pat Satchmo, Tinga & Ernie, and The Ethiopians.
