GalacticCoolin' Off ... CD
Fog City/Volcano, 1996. Used ... $0.99
Choppy New Orleans styled funk in the tradition of the Meters, and recorded with a lot of fidelity to the original sound. Not as amazing as the original, natch, but still surprisingly funky with a good earthy sound to it. Tracks include "Go Go", "Everybody Wants Some (parts 1-3)", "Stax Jam", "Funky Bird" and "On The One. CD

Galactic ExplorersEpitaph For Venus ... LP
Mental Experience (Spain), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99
Wonderfully free-wheeling sounds from this hip German trio – maybe not one of the biggest groups of the Krautrock generation, but one who definitely earn their name with the music on this album! The set's got a long-spun approach to the tunes, which are all quite long – layers of keyboards that include Fender Rhodes, minimoog, Hammond organ, "Lunatron", and other electronics – mixed with some slight effects, and no other instrumentation at all – which makes for a very evocative, all-instrumental blend of keyboard sounds and styles – as they spin out beautifully in ways that really build a bridge to the sky! Titles include "Lunarscape", "Ethereal Jazz", and "Venus Rising". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousJazz Dispensary – Moon Rocks – Extraplanetary Funk, Space Disco, & Galactic Boogie (180 gram pressing) (2017 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Fantasy, Late 70s. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A cool collection of funky tracks from the Fantasy Records catalog of the 70s – the kind of hip cuts that were often better than mainstream disco – and which sometimes used a bit of jazz in the instrumentation as well! There's a few spacey themes here, but maybe not as much as you'd guess from the cover and title – but that's OK with us, because we can totally dig these down to earth grooves! Titles include "Let's Get Crackin" by Shock, "I Like It" by Players Association, "Funky Force" by Larry Williams, "Space Is The Place" by Pleasure, "Close Encounters Of A Funky Kind" by Fat Larry's Band, "Space Bass" by Slick, "Messages From The Stars (long wave mix)" by Rah Band, "Do It 4 U" by Starship Connection, and "Sparkle (single edit)" by Fat Larry's Band.

George-Edwards GroupArchives ... LP
Drag City/Galactic Zoo Disk, 1970s/1980s. Near Mint- ... $12.99
Vintage 70s & 80s recordings from the George-Edwards Group – whose recorded legacy, we thought, was held almost completely by the cosmic psych/synth folk rarity 38:38 LP – but here's more from their personal Archives! Ed and Ray both provide vocals, keyboards and percussion – piano, acoustic and electric bass by Ed and acoustic guitar by Ray. Overall, it's a weird mix of chiming or fuzzed out guitars and squeeling keyboards – but always oddly tuneful! Includes "Once Upon A Moog", "Nevada", "Shattered Heart", "Puppetman", "It's All Right", "The Blowing Wind", "Midnight Asylum" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Electric Moog OrchestraMusic From Close Encounters Of The Third Kind ... LP
Musicor, 1977. Very Good ... $4.99
This is the second of 2 albums that the Electric Moog Orchestra cut during the 70s designed to cash in on the fame of the big sci-fi soundtracks of the time. This one's got some nice cuts from John Williams' score to Close Encounters – including a lot of less-familiar themes that work well with moogy playing, like "The Abduction Of Barry", "Galactic Force", "Space Symphony", and "The Conversation".

Lyrics BornQuite A Life ... CD
Real People, 2018. New Copy ... $7.99 15.98
A milestone effort from Bay Area veteran Lyrics Born – who has been delivering rock solid funky soul-steeped hip hop solo, with his Latyrx duo, and as a producer for well over 20 years by this point – and still delivering the goods after all these years! He's been leaning more on gritty funk & soul influences as the years pass, thanks to this super charismatic, slightly raspy voice, which lends itself so well to the style. It's only gotten more endearing, if you ask us! Guests include his wife Joyo Verlande, Del, Aloe Blacc, Galactic, Chali 2na and more – and titles include "Chocolate Cake", "When I Get My Check" feat Chali 2na, Gift Of Gab & Joyo Verlande, "Clap Your Hands (If You Know You're Beautiful)", "Same But Different" feat Sister Sparrow, "Don't Quit Your Daydream", "Trouble Trouble Trouble" feat Joyo Verlande, "In Case Of Fire" feat Galactic & Kelly Finnigan of Monophonics, a nice cover of JB's "This Is A Man's World?" that casts in the contemporary cultural light, "Is It Worth It" feat Del Tha Funkee Homosapien & Forrest Day, "Can't Lose My Joy" feat Aloe Blacc & Baby I Made It" feat Trey Privott of Lost Coast.

Malone & Barnes & Spontaneous SimplicityFreedom Serenade ... LP
Humpin International, 1977. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Jazzy soul from the team of Jonni Malone and Allan Barnes, working here with the Spontaneous Simplicity group – a combo named after an old Sun Ra tune! The feel of the album is somewhere in the territory of the hipper work on Fantasy Records in the mid 70s – indie soul that has a sweetly spiritual approach, and a fair bit of jazz in the mix – all served up with some wonderfully warm production! Some tracks are upbeat groovers aimed at the dancefloor, but with an overall deeper mode of expression that has great solos really stretching out – while others are more laidback, with a 70s righteous take on the groove. Malone plays keyboards and sings, Barnes plays "Afro horns" in a Oneness Of Juju way, and the album also features work by a number of other ensemble players. Titles include "Galactic Interlude", "Road Man", "Freedom Serenade", "Up N Comin", "Moonstruck", and "Workin Plan". LP, Vinyl record album

Reel PeopleRetroflection Remixed ... CD
Reel People (UK), 2019. New Copy ... $16.99
Excellent remix version of Reel People's fantastic Retroflection – one that you can almost look to as an equally great alternative version of it – with remixes by Atjazz, John Morales, Terry Hunter, Tall Black Guy, DJ Spinna and others! The warmly collaborative spirit of the original album – with guest vocals by Angie Stone, Navasha Daya, Anthony David, Omar and others – makes this kind of a companion piece a natural fit. The remixers wisely hew to the gliding soul with jazzy touches that make Retroflection such a strong, standout work, while bringing in elements of club soul, jazzy samba, and timeless disco, depending on the producer/remixer. Titles include "Don't Stop The Music (Art Of Tones Modern Disco Mix)", "I Want To Thank You (Sebb Junior Remix)", "Thinking About Your Love (Da Brownie Remix)", "Keep It Up (DJ Spinna Galactic Funk Remix)", "I'm In Love (Buscrates Remix)", "Buttercup (Terry Hunter Main Club Mix", "Always There (Scott Diaz Funk Excursion)", and "Can We Pretend (Tall Black Guy Samba Remix)".

TeaInterstellar (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Jump World (Japan), 2018. Used ... $6.99
A set that really lives up to its cover – as the music here is a very galactic take on contemporary soul – grounded by excellent vocals from Tea, but served up with lots of cool cosmic elements in the music! Things are nice and warm throughout – that version of space first explored by Herbie Hancock's keyboards in the 70s – and the instrumentation also includes acoustic moments on piano, violin, and cello – really moving the sound to more sophisticated territory than the usual beats and keys approach! We don't know much about Tea, but a few songs here caught our ear, and the rest of the album definitely delivers – showcasing her unusual phrasing, which is hard to peg, but nicely distinct – on titles that include "Kiss The Ground Goodbye", "Interstellar", "While I Dream", "Such A Tease", "I Will Bleed", "Oh My Buddha", and a surprising cover of "Another Brick In The Wall (part 2)".

VariousDJ Spinna Presents The Sound Beyond Stars – Essential Remixes – Part 1 ... LP
BBE (UK), 2000s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99 29.99
The mighty DJ Spinna has a way of making already-great music sound even greater – by using just the right sort of soulful touch to augment subtle elements in the original tunes that might have otherwise gone overlooked – to unlock a richer, more righteous energy that really serves the tunes well! And while we've loved Spinna's remix work on countless singles over the years, we're even happier to hear it all in one place like this – in a nicely overstuffed collection that has so many great Spinna touches, it could well be a Spinna album on its own – especially since the DJ always has such a warmly collaborative relationship with so many different artists. Vinyl part 1 includes the exclusive cuts "The Power (DJ Spinna acid row mix)" by Karizma and "Got To Let It Go (DJ Spinna rmx)" by Angela Johnson – plus "You Can't Lie (DJ Spinna rmx)" by Kerri Chandler with Harley & Muscle, "I Remember Love (DJ Spinna rmx)" by Yvette Rovira, and "Moonlight (DJ Spinna galactic soul voc)" by Bah Samba.

Stardrive with Robert MasonIntergalactic Trot ... LP
Elektra, 1973. Near Mint- ... $5.99
Space jazz for the 70s – a classic batch of synthesizer fusion from keyboardist Robert Mason, whose groove here is totally great! The album's got rhythms that are rooted in rock, but executed in jazz – making for a chunky, funky sound that really helps this album cross over nicely! Mason's synth work is really great – spinning and spiraling out into the cosmos, but held firmly in line with drums from Steve Gadd, percussion from Bruce Ditmas, and a range of saxes from Michael Brecker. Electronics really dominate the set – in a good way too – making the album one of the first of its kind for the era, alongside work by Patrick Gleeson and other artists who'd take this sort of thing to the nth degree! Titles include "Rushes", "Stardrive", "Everything At Once", "Intergalactic Trot", and "Want To Take You Higher". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Emilio Aparicio MoogExpansion Galactica ... LP
Mental Experience (Spain), Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Really great sounds from an artist with "moog" in his name – and a fair bit in his music as well! Emilio Aparicio Moog recorded these tracks on the Guatemala scene in the 70s – and the titles were mostly issued as ultra-rare 45s, but are brought together here in one heck of a great album of moogy madness – a set that rivals all the late 60s brilliance of better-known artists like Mort Garson or Jean Jacques Perry – with equally groovy results! Like the best of the moog purveyors of his time, Emilio Aparicio works at a level that's very unique – not just moogy covers of familiar pop hits, but new tunes that really make the most of the space age instrument – at a level that's filled with upbeat, very rhythmic tunes that have the keyboard exploding with analogue charms at every twist and turn. Titles include "La Ceremonia", "Expansion Galactica", "Brujeira", "Bo Bo Bo Beau", "Transfiguracion Del Iniciado", "Paren La Contaminacion Del Aire", "El Misterio De Tiahuanaco", and "Los Visitantes De Sirio".

✨✧ Sun Ra & His Astro Infinity ArkestraIntergalactic Thing (with download) ... LP
Roaratorio, 1969. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Never-heard music from the legendary Sun Ra Arkestra – pulled from four different sessions recorded at the group's Philadelphia home in 1969 – and every bit as impressive as the Saturn Records material from the time! The recording quality is great – these aren't random snippets of sounds caught on a cassette – and Ra's really trying out some new ideas with the Arkestra – sometimes working in highly percussive modes that feel like a late 60s update of the exoticism of the group in their final Chicago years – sometimes bringing in more electric elements, as Ra himself plays both Farfisa and a Hohner clavinet – no piano at all! Other players include the mighty John Gilmore on tenor, Doug Williams on trumpet and "space dimension mellophone", Marshall Allen and Danny Davis on altos and flutes, Danny Ray Thompson on alto, James Jacson on percussion – and all other members of the group play percussion too – which makes for plenty of percussive moments! Notes are by Robert Campbell – the Sun Ra expert – and titles include "The Others From Another World", "Discipline Of The Pharoahs", "Latent Friends", "Moon Over Saturn", "Principles Of The Pharoahs", "Calling Out To Saturn", "Exotic Forest", "Do The Intergalactic Thing", and "Saturn Moon".

Charles EarlandComin To You Live/Earland's Jam/Street Themes (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia/Robinsongs (UK), Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $12.99
A trio of great albums from organist Charles Earland – presented here with great bonus tracks too! First up is Comin To You Live – one of Charles Earland's sweet albums from his years at Columbia Records – done in a mode that's much more R&B than his earliest work, but in a style that's still A-OK with us! The groove here is greatly helped out by arrangements from Tom Washington, Weldon Irvine, and Marcus Miller – all great talents for mixing soul into Earland's jazzier keyboards – yet in a way that still keeps all of the best elements intact! Many of the tracks feature vocals, but in a gently soulful way that glides in nicely alongside the keys – and speaking of keys, Charles plays Fender Rhodes and Arp here in addition to his usual organ. Titles include "Coming To You Live", "Spend The Night With Me", "Take Me To Heaven", "Cornbread", "Good Question", "Zee Funkin Space", and "I Will Never Tell". Earland's Jam is filled with stellar grooves from Charles Earland – a great mix of jazz, soul, and funk – put together in a way that's quite different from his previous records on Prestige or Mercury Records! The sound here is tight 80s soul – put together by Tom Tom Washington, who gives the whole thing a sophisticated Chicago vibe – and one that matches Charles' sweet keyboard solos with wickedly sharp rhythms, and some occasional vocal bits too. Singers include Larry Blackmon, TC Campell, and Charles himself – but there's still a focus that seems to be more on the instrumentation overall – served up with some mighty nice organ lines from Earland. Titles include "The Only One", "Marcia's Waltz", "You Belong To Me", "Never Knew Love Like This Before", "Guilty", "Laser Lips", "Earland's Jam", and "Animal". Earland's Street Themes is a great little groover from keyboardist Charles Earland – and an album that definitely lives up to its title! There's plenty of street sounds going on here – lots of modern R&B modes that echo the changing styles of early 80s soul music, especially on the east coast! And as part of that, there's a good deal of vocals on the record, alongside Charles' keyboards – work by singers who include Larry Hancock, Bruce Gray, and Sheryl Kendrick – each of whom adds plenty to the record, working over jazzy grooves nicely scored by Earland. Titles include "Be My Lady", "Take Me Away", "Feels So Good To Me", "Burning Devotion", "Tell Me What It Is", and "Go All The Way". Bonus tracks include "Phire", "Intergalactic Love Song", "We All Live In The Jungle", "Coming To You Live (7" mix)", and "Let The Music Play (12" mix)". CD

Kool KeithBlack Elvis/Lost In Space ... CD
Ruffhouse/Columbia, 1999. Used ... $7.99
Kool Keith adds Black Elvis to his always expanding collection of personalities. This time, two tracks produced by Kut Masta Kurt and the rest produced by Kool Keith. Maybe as a way of making up for saying "I don't neeeed Zapp, I don't neeeed Roger Troutman," on a record a few years back, Roger is featured on "Master of the Game", complete with the classic Zapp vocoder effects. Overall, the sound is similar to the Dr. Dooom LP, with maybe a few more futuristic verses and less emphasis on how everyone else is biting his style. Tracks include "Rockets On The Battlefield", "Livin Astro", "Supergalactic Lover", "I'm Seein Robots", "Static", "Black Elvis", "Maxi Curls", "Keith Turbo", "Fine Girls", "The Girls Don't Like The Job", "Clifton", "All The Time", and "I Don't Play" CD

✨✧ Probe 10There Is A Universe (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Lion, 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A very groovy record from a very unique band – a homegrown set by an obscure Pennsylvania combo from the 70s – a group who were equally schooled in jazz fusion and progressive rock! Probe 10 are a rock group at their core, but they've also drank heavily from the brew of 70s Mahavishnu Orchestra, Return To Forever, and electric Miles Davis – and use all those elements to forge these really creative explorations in music – tracks that stretch out with some great lines on Fender Rhodes, and also feature solos on trumpet, flute, and guitar – mixed with vocals that are sometimes surprisingly poetic. The best passages are instrumental – and these guys definitely have a King Crimson inspiration, too, although maybe without the chops – and titles include "There Is A Universe", "Invasion Of The Mallandroids", "Intergalactic Crossfire", "To Improvise A Dream", and "Galaxy Five". CD features 5 more bonus tracks – including "The Playing Of The Game (parts 1 & 2)" and "Enchanted Mountain (parts 1 & 2)". CD

✨✧ Sun RaMy Brother The Wind Vol 1 (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Saturn/Cosmic Myth, 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A stone classic – and one of the wilder, more electronic albums from Sun Ra – a set that has him playing on "two moog synthesizers" – which both sound as if they're going at the same time! The rest of the group is quite small – with only John Gilmore, Marshall Allen, and Danny Davis – so Ra really center stage on the keys, and spends most of the record making some really weird and wonderful sounds on the moog – showing the world that, although the instrument was already gaining popularity in the hands of others, nobody could handle the futuristic sound machine like the spaceman himself! The mix of moog with avant jazz solos is completely sublime – and titles include "Intergalactic II", "To Nature's God", and "The Code Of Interdependence". CD features some great bonus tracks – the 17 minute "Space Probe", plus some alternates and odd takes too! CD
