✨✧ General Johnson & Chairmen Of The BoardTimeless ... CD
Expansion (UK), 2002. New Copy ... $8.99 16.99
Surprisingly great work from General Johnson & Chairmen Of The Board – a new recording, but with a soulful depth that shows they haven't lost it since the 70s! The General's vocals are as great as ever, with that odd little twinge that always made him one of the most distinctive singers in soul – and the arrangements on the set, although a bit smoother than in earlier years, are also a lot more consistent, and really sparkle with some great energy on the best tracks. Includes the group's killer new cut "Bless Your Heart", plus the tracks "Shoulda Coulda Woulda", "Shero", "Dreamin", "Jerry's In Love", "What Goes Around", "Don't Walk Away", "Bottom Line", and "On The Beach".

✨✧ General JohnsonGenerally Speaking (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Invictus/Demon (UK), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A great solo album by this member of Chairmen of the Board – done with some wicked Holland Dozier Holland production, at a level that almost makes Johnson sound heavier here than in his work with his more famous group! The vocals have that same sort of crazy pinched sound that he had with The Chairmen, and there's loads of great original tunes here – plus a few Chairmen numbers, thrown into the mix, in the way that things sometimes got repeated on the Invictus label. The grooves are nice and bouncy – and cuts include "God's Gift To Man", "Every Couple's Not A Pair", "I'll Never Get Tired Of You", "Mary Lou Thomas", and "My Credit Didn't Go Through".

✨✧ Roots Radics/General Echo12 Inches Of Dub/12 Inches Of Pleasure ... CD
VP/17 North Parade, Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A pair of classic dub and vocal albums – tied together beautifully in this set! First up is the instrumental 12 Inches Of Dub – a massive set of rhythms from the legendary Roots Radics – one that's definitely got the dubby elements you'd expect from the title, but which also showcases the kind of rock-solid instrumentation the group always had at the core! The sound is almost effortless here – the kind of spare but brilliant music that only a few studio groups could do this well – with guitar from Eric Lamont, bass from Errol holt, keyboards from Steely Johnson, and all these fantastic echoey drums from Lincoln Valentine Scott – all produced to perfection by Henry Junjo Lawes. The whole thing's great – a mindbending trip through sound and space – with titles that include "Young Banana Dub", "Headlamp Dub", "Dub In Flames", "Confessions Of A Dub Engineer", "Young Gal Dub", and "Carry On Dubbing". Next is 12 Inches Of Pleasure – one of the greatest albums ever from General Echo – a set of raunchy lyrics from the early days of the digital age – set to some fantastic rhythms from the mighty Roots Radics! The general talks and toasts his way through the lyrics – offering up a fair bit of sensual promises in the package – while the Radics provide all these fantastic spacey sounds and trippy rhythms in the background – on titles that include "That's How You Get Your Love Bump", "Old Man Love Young Gal Veggie", "Me Know Everything About She Pum Pum", "Lorna She Love Young Boy Banana", and "It's My Desire To Set Your Crutches On Fire".

✨✧ James BookerLost Paramount Tapes ... LP
Paramount/General General, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 19.98
A great little set from New Orleans legend James Booker – a previously unissued session from 1973 – recorded in LA with a great array of well-matched players! Booker's on piano, playing with a chunky, rough-edged groove – pretty funky at times, thanks especially to the great John Boudreaux on drums – best known for his classic lines on early work by Dr John! Other players on the date include Alvin Robinson on guitar, David Lastie on sax, and Jessie Hill on tambourine and vocals – and although the album never got the final studio polish it might have, were it released at the time, that aspect actually makes it great – and helps it retain all of its most rough-edged moments. Titles include "Hole In The Wall", "Tico Tico", "Feel So Bad", "Junco Partner", "Lah Tee Tah", "African Gumbo", "So Swell When You're Well", and "Goodnight Irene". LP, Vinyl record album

Tony AllenBlack Voices ... CD
Comet (France), 1999. Used ... $16.99
A seminal set that really put Tony Allen back on top – a record that showed that Allen was way more than just Fela's drummer, or another Afro Funk artist in general – but instead a really free-thinking, deep-concept musician overall! The album comes from key time that Allen spent on the Paris scene in the 90s – really refining a new sound, while keeping all the best bits from before – creating this new sort of darker groove that almost mixes older percussion with kind of a spacey style that's echoes proggish funk from a range of groups from Can to Cymande! There's loads of cool keyboards and tight guitar lines, and even the vocals have some spacey production that makes them fit nicely with the grooves. Titles include "Asiko", "Get Together", "Black Voices", and "The Same Blood", and remixes of "Asiko" and "Black Voices". CD

Jon BatisteChronology Of A Dream – Live At The Village Vanguard ... LP
Verve, 2019. New Copy ... $18.99 21.99
Jon Batiste is fantastic here – way more so than we normally give him credit for, and maybe even sharper in a live setting than in the studio! The group works with a mix of jazz, funk, and soul – but very different than Jon's band on TV, as there's deeper, richer elements going on – both in the general colors of the instruments, and in the way that the solos soar out and really give the songs some emotion. The lineup features tenor, alto, trumpet, and lots of nice bottom currents on the rhythms – sometimes funky, sometimes more lyrical – all topped with great piano lines from Batiste, who also sings a bit too. Much of the phrasing and flavor is more modern than some of his other albums – and titles include "Blacck", "Prince", "Pwwr", "Birthe", "Kenner", "Story", "Ordr", and "Higher".

Tight, straight forward independent hip hop from an influential crew. Includes the title track, "Creep Wit Me", "Da Don Flow", the headnodding funky standout "A Haaaa", "Ease Back" with Method Man & General Steel", "Impossible" with Smif N Wessun, "Glory", "General Fever", "At Night", "Pay Back", "Roll Wit Me" feat Tek, "Look At Them" and more.

Victor Assis BrasilEsperanto/Victor Assis Brasil Toca Antonio Carlos Jobim (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Quartin/Far Out (UK), 1970. New Copy ... $9.99 16.99
A fantastic double-length set – two full albums of music, essential for any fan of Brazilian jazz – or even jazz in general! First up is Esperanto – an incredible album from one of Brazil's greatest reed players of the 70s – the mighty Victor Assis Brasil – a free-thinking spirit who really took Brazilian jazz in bold new directions at the time! The record shows Victor absorbing a lot of post-Coltrane influences, and blending them with a tight approach to rhythm – laid down here by Dom Salvador on piano (and organ), Edison Lobo on bass, and Edson Machando on drums. The group is completed by Helio Delmiro on guitar, and Claudio Roditi plays trumpet on one track – but the real highlight is the amazing reed work by Brasil, which is filled with soul and warmth, plus a deep sense of exploration. The whole session was put together by Roberto Quartin in 1970 – and it's still extremely fresh today. Titles include "Children", "Gingerbread Boy", "Senegal", and "Marilia". Next is Toca Antonio Carlos Jobim – a fantastic album from this legendary Brazilian saxophonist – and one that's way different than the usual instrumental reading of the music of Antonio Carlos Jobim! The setting is less of a bossa-inspired one than a post-Coltrane mode – as Victor Assis Brasil blows alto sax, and a bit of soprano – on long, stretched out versions of Jobim compositions – often given a bit of modal energy, thanks to the group's strong piano and organ performances by Dom Salvador. The rest of the players are all great, too – Helio Delmiro on guitar, Edson Lobo on bass, and Edison Machado on drums – all players who grew up in the bossa jazz years of the 60s, but who here are set free to explore new territory by producer Roberto Quartin. The whole thing's wonderful – and titles include "Bonita", "Wave", "So Tinha De Ser Come Voce", and "Dindi". CD also features two bonus tracks – alternate takes of "Ao Amigo Quartin" and "Marilla".

✨✧ Andrea Caputo, edAll City Writers – The Graffiti Diaspora ... Book
Kitchen 93, 2012. New Copy ... $12.99 49.95
Maybe the most amazing graffiti book you'll ever hope to own – an amazingly heavy, oversized volume that tells the tale of the birth of the format and its global spread – served up in dozens of articles brought together in the space of an imaginary newspaper! The pages are huge, and the writing really matches the vivid images alongside – and is augmented by loads of cool details like subway and train route maps, a New York graffiti timeline, and pages and pages of full-color artwork! To be honest, we'd thought the graffiti book was done a long time ago, but this volume has really re-inspired our interest – and is essential reading not just for fans of graf art, but also of hip hop culture and urban spaces in general. 406 super-heavy pages, full color, oversized.

Doug CarnSpirit Of The New Land ... CD
Black Jazz/Real Gone, 1972. New Copy ... $12.99 13.99
Plenty of spirit, and plenty of soul – a 70s classic from organist Doug Carn, and a record that took his instrument, and jazz in general, to a whole new level for the decade! Carn's got this burning, righteous quality on his keys – a vibe that certainly owes something to Larry Young, but also takes off even further – working in a spiritual ensemble that also features his wife Jean Carn on vocals – sounding way more like a righteous jazz singer than on her later soul sides for Philly International! Other players are great, too – and include Charles Tolliver on flugelhorn, Garnett Brown on trombone, George Harper on tenor and soprano sax, Buster Williams on bass, and Alphonse Mouzon on drums. Tracks include "New Moon", "Trance Dance", "My Spirit", "Blue In Green", and "Arise & Shine". 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

Miles DavisBitches Brew (with bonus track) ... CD
Columbia, 1969. Used 2 CDs ... $9.99
One of the few cases in jazz where an oft-played classic still resonates with power! The record itself is a key cap to Miles Davis' already-groundbreaking years of the 60s – a bold step forward, not just for his nascent electric sound, but also for jazz in general – and the benchmark by which so many other records would be judged (and fail) in years to come! The double-length set makes full use of all four sides of the record – expanding the flow (as well as the lineup) of the original Davis modal vision – and using all players to amazing effect, so much so that most players here turn out some of their best recorded work ever! The lineup is virtually a whose who for the sound of fusion in the 70s – including Wayne Shorter on soprano sax, Bennie Maupin on bass clarinet, Joe Zawinul and Chick Corea on keyboards, John McLaughlin on guitar, Dave Holland on bass, and Lenny White and Jack DeJohnette on drums – plus Jumma Santos and Don Alias on added percussion. Titles include "Pharaoh's Dance", "Spanish Key", "Sanctuary", "Bitches Brew", "John McLaughlin", and "Miles Runs the Voodoo Down". CD features one bonus track – "Feio" – nearly 12 more minutes of electric goodness! CD

DVDCenter Of Nowhere – The Spirit & Sounds Of Springfield, Missouri (blu-ray) ... DVD
Lucky Kind, 2021. New Copy ... $7.99 19.99
A great look at a surprisingly strong source of music – the scene in Springfield, Missouri – a tiny stop along route 66 that's had more influence over the decades than you might expect! Writer Dave Hoekstra takes us to Springfield and tells the tale of the city's overlooked influence on rock, country, folk, gospel, and roots music in the 20th Century – providing lots of supporting interview footage along the way, with the likes of Merle Haggard, Dan Penn, Brenda Lee, Dave Alvin, Jonathan Richman, and Robbie Fulks – all of whom sing the praises of Springfield's impact on themselves, and music in general. The film runs for over 90 minutes – and this DVD edition comes with a full five bonus chapters! DVD

Bob DylanAnother Side of Bob Dylan (180 gram mono pressing) ... LP
Columbia/Sundazed, 1964. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99 28.98
Bob's fourth record, and close runner up to Freewheelin' as the masterpiece of this early stage of his career. While the overly arch Times They Are A Changin' pretty much stood as the cornerstone of classifiable folk rock at the time, Another Side is just that. Dense, elliptical, and downright surreal at times, with some of the protesty stuff that made the media so happy & hungry, but much more layered and poetic. Another Side is also much more reverent of and indebted to the Harry Smith field recordings that Bob studied so hard, the stuff that finally caught on with the general public in the early 90s. Titles include "Spanish Harlem Incident", "It Ain't Me Babe", "Ballad In Plain D", "Black Crow Blues", "I Don't Believe You", "Motorpsycho Nitemare", "To Ramona", "Chimes Of Freedom", "My Back Pages", and "I Shall Be Free No 10".

Electric Prunes (with David Axelrod)Release Of An Oath (maroon & white vinyl pressing) ... LP
Reprise/Real Gone, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.99
The second album done by David Axelrod for The Electric Prunes – and arguably the best! The album's a bit unusual, in that none of the original Prunes were actually working on the session – and instead, Axlerod's almost fully at the helm – putting together the set in a way that's quite similar to his own solo albums over at Capitol! As with those, there's a bold, spacious sort of instrumentation here – richly orchestral, but also quite funky at times – punctuated by great drums from Earl Palmer, bass from Carol Kaye, keyboards from Don Randi, and guitar from Howard Roberts – who's really tripping out nicely here! The work uses the Jewish Kol Nidre mass as its conceptual focus – but really takes off with plenty of tripped-out Axelrod flourishes that make the whole thing a fair bit more psychedelic than anything you'd ever hear in temple. Titles include "Holy Are You", "The Adoration", "Our Father, Our King", "Kol Nidre", and "General Confessional". LP, Vinyl record album

Farofa Carioca with Seu JorgeMoro No Brasil ... CD
Universal (Brazil), 1998. Used ... $16.99
Early work from Seu Jorge – heard here with the group Farfoca Carioca, but still in a style that's got the same soulful samba touches of his own work! The sound is a bit more upbeat here – vocals that are often sung by the whole group at once, even though Jorge gets plenty of solo moments – and the instrumentation is live and funk-based, but with plenty of jazzy flourishes on the horns, and a fair bit of Brazilian percussion too. And while the record maybe doesn't pack a punch that's as hard as some of Seu Jorge's best work, it's still plenty darn great on its own – a rare example of a set like this coming from Brazil at the time, and a real precursor for grown to come – not only in Jorge's music, but in Brazilian grooves in general! Titles include "Bebel", "Sao Gonca", "Moro No Brasil", "Jacare", "Indio", "Rabisca Robson", and "Menino Da Central". CD

This set follows strongly in the mode of that classic – tight boogie soul with a great 80s vibe – lots of basslines, plenty of keyboards, and beats that crackle with a sweet electro vibe – one that really fits all the wikki-wikki lines from the keys, and the general upbeat, partyful style of the music! Bettye Jo Miller sings lead vocals – despite the Mandroid title – and tracks include "Moonwalk", "Sunrise", "Sneeky", "Fantasy", "Video Sensation", and "Mandroid". LP, Vinyl record album

Groundbreaking work from the legendary Ahmad Jamal – not just in his own career, but in live jazz in general! The album's a classic recording of Jamal's trio with Israel Crosby on bass and Vernell Fournier on drums – captured at the Pershing Lounge on the south side of Chicago, where Jamal was clearly wowing the crowd with his amazing talents on the piano. The groove here is sublimely fluid and soulful – clearly the next wave of expression on the piano in the 50s, and as important to the Chicago scene as Bill Evans was to that of New York at the time. The recording quality is wonderful – clear enough to capture the subtleties of Crosby's amazing bass, and the lightly tippling sound of Fournier's drums – and titles include a classic extended reading of "Poinciana", plus "What's New", "But Not For Me", and "No Greater Love".

Keith Jarrett/Jan Garbarek/Palle Danielsson/Jon ChristensenSleeper – Tokyo April 16 1979 ... CD
ECM (Germany), 1979. Used 2 CDs ... $26.99
A rare slice of ECM Records from the 70s – a previously-unreleased live performance – featuring some of the label's most influential talents of the time! The core energy here comes from the piano of Keith Jarrett and reeds of Jan Garbarek – both musicians whose instruments shaped the sound of the label, and of jazz in general, during this crucial decade in modern music – aided here by Palle Danielsson on bass and Jon Christensen on drums – players with a keen ear for the sorts of rhythms needed to really make the music flow! Tracks are quite long, and in some of the best spirit of Jarrett's work with reeds – yet also warmer than his music with Dewey Redman at the time. Really beautiful throughout – with tracks that include "Personal Mountains", "Innocence", "Chant Of The Soil", "New Dance", "Oasis", "So Tender", and "Prism". CD

Syl JohnsonMs Fine Brown Frame ... LP
Erect/Boardwalk, 1982. Very Good+ ... $7.99
A bit of a comeback for Chicago soul legend Syl Johnson – a set initially recorded for the smaller indie Erect, but picked up for bigger distribution by Boardwalk thanks to a catchy title hit! The sound here is quite different from Syl's Twinight or Hi Records years – still a bit bluesy overall, but also going for a much tighter boogie-based groove – in keeping with the sound of Erect at the time. Johnson's vocals still retain that nice kind of pinch that shows his down home roots, but the instrumentation is much tighter than before – often in an electric mode that's a bit like Malaco in the 80s, only slicker. Syl produced the record with General Crook – and titles include the nice groover "Ms Fine Brown Frame", plus "Sweet Thing", "You Don't Have To Go", "It Ain't Easy", "Groove Me", and "Keep On Loving Me".

One of the best-remembered groups from the Detroit scene of the early 70s – thanks to the massive title track on this album, and a whole host of other wonderful cuts as well! The group features the great Steve Marcus on vocals – an artist who'd cut some key Northern soul singles for smaller labels in the 60s – but who really bursts out of the box here with great presentation from the Holland Dozier Holland empire! The record features some great songs by General Johnson and Greg Perry – and Perry also handled some of the production work for the record – really pushing the group with the sort of full, rich sound the Chairmen Of The Board brought to their own work. Titles include "Somebody's Been Sleeping", "Too Many Cooks (Spoil The Soup)", "One Man's Leftovers", "Love is Sweeter", "Age Ain't Nothin' But a Number", and "Back Track". LP, Vinyl record album

Kudu, 1976. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A pretty amazing set from Esther Phillips – her final album for Kudu – and a beautiful mix of soaring soul sounds from one the most unique, emotionally-inflected soul vocalists of her era! Esther's in prime Kudu mode here – working with jazzy arrangements by David Matthews and Pee Wee Ellis, adding her unique, grit-inflected soul chanteuse vocals to a smoother mix of instrumentation that creates a perfect counterpoint that took her way past her earlier work! There's also a couple of really sweet disco skewed numbers that work incredibly well – with spacier bits of synth and a dancefloor soul bed of percussion and rhythms – and in general, the arrangements are pretty great from track-to-track! Players include Randy Brecker and Mike Brecker on trumpet and tenor sax, Bray Miles on synthesizer, Bobby Lyle on clavinet, Eric Gale on guitar, Joe Farrell on tenor sax and alto flute, percussionist Ralph MacDonald and other excellent name musicians and others bring a grand sweep and sweeter intimacy when the mood requires.

Freddie ReddRedd's Blues ... CD
Blue Note, 1961. Used ... $9.99
A real corker from Freddie Redd – and never issued at the time! Despite the fact that Freddie was part of one of the greatest sessions ever on Blue Note – the soundtrack to The Connection, done with Jackie McLean – he rarely got the chance to record more for the label, which is what makes this session an especially great treat! The set features Freddie working with an ultra-hip lineup that includes trumpeter Benny Bailey, tenorist Tina Brooks, and the great Jackie McLean, who always seemed to bring out an edge in Freddie's playing that didn't show up otherwise. The style of the tunes is hardbop, in general, but they've got these sharp little edges and modern twists that really make them sound fresh. Perhaps that's why Blue Note didn't issue the session at the time – we'll never know for sure – but it's also what makes the album so enjoyable now! Titles include "Now", "Cute Doot", "Somewhere", "Love Lost", and "Old Spice". CD

A&M, 1967. Near Mint- ... $5.99
The landmark first album from The Sandpipers – a set that not only sent big ripples through 60s pop in general, but which also really transformed the sound of male harmony groups at the time! The trio have a great way of mixing together jazz harmonies learned in the generation of the Four Freshmen and The Hi-Los with some of the folksy modes used by 60s groups of the folk revival – yet also manage their own weird dark space too, partly through the use of some slight Latin and Spanish touches that resonate perfectly with the A&M Records aesthetic of the time! The approach is heard famously in their sublime reading of "Guantanamera" – but the whole album is wonderful, and other tracks include "La Mer", "Things We Said Today", "Strangers In The Night", "What Makes You Dream, Pretty Girl?", and a sublime vocal rendition of "Cast Your Fate To The Wind". Arrangements by Mort Garson and Nick DeCaro, too! LP, Vinyl record album

An incredible document of the punk and post punk era live music scene in Chicago by Brian Shanley – a photographer and designer who shot so many iconic bands and did design work for Wax Trax Records early on – and this book of his black & whites is pretty breathtaking if you have even a passive interest in punk or Chicago live music history in general! It captures some of the earliest Chicago appearances by solo era Iggy Pop,The Ramones, Bauhaus, Pere Ubu, Patti Smith, Motorhead, The Dead Boys and so many more, pics from some of the legendary suburban Chicago gigs in Wheeling and Schaumburg by punk bands back in the day with gigs in the city proper were harder to get, shots of seminal Chicago bands like Skafish and Tutu & The Pirates around town, shots of X in their own LA stomping grounds, Television and others at their CBGBs home base – it's one amazing shot after another here. After a short foreword and intro the book is almost all photos, every one of them vital. Book

Wreck/P-Vine (Japan), 1995. New Copy ... $29.99
Classic Boot Camp hip hop from the Clik's peak era – with timeless production by Da Beatminerz. Stark, hard hitting beats of forthright rhymes from the heart of the mid 90s – such a classic era for hip hop in general, and this one strands strong even in such impeccable company! It might even sound better in hindsight than it did back in the day, given with wealth of classics that came out of the hip hop class of '95, you could be forgiven for overlooking it a bit in hindsight, but this genuinely up there with Liquid Swords, Cuban Linx, The Infamous Mobb Deep and the rest of the best.

A rare solo effort from Danny Woods – a record cut away from Chairmen Of The Board during a stretch when the group had temporarily disbanded – and an excellent showcase for Danny's strength on his own! Woods is really wonderful here – with a proud, righteous quality that really soars out away from General Johnson and Harrison Kennedy – perfect for the righteous backings arranged by HB Barnum and McKinley Jackson – whose spirits really fit some of the more progressive modes of the music. There's plenty of upbeat, positive moments throughout – and titles include "Two Can Be As Lonely As One", "Let Me Ride", "It Didn't Take Long", "Everybody's Got A Song To Sing", "Working On A Building Of Love", and "Roller Coaster".

VariousDifferent Fashion – The High Note Dancehall Collection ... CD
High Note/Doctor Bird (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99 24.99
Pivotal early dancehall work from the Kingston scene – all of it produced by the legendary Sonia Pottinger, almost all of it issued on her short-lived Dance Hall label! The music here shares some of the qualities of the emerging mode at other labels – but unlike, say, Studio one – which built new tracks on older rhythms – Pottinger works here with new grooves, mostly by The Revolutionaries – mostly slow-tripping, at a level that takes off from the roots years – topped with a mix of singers and DJs that get some really great dubby production touches! This isn't the digital work of a few years to come, but warm, well-crafted material that caps off the last moment before reggae took on some more electronic styles in the following decade – all served up with the usual great notes and attention to detail we love from the Doctor Bird label. The package features 34 tracks in all – some unreleased – and titles include "Tan Turdy" by Errol Scorcher, "Stormy Weather (12" mix)" by Bobby Ellis, "Different Fashion" by Lee Van Cleef, "A Little Bit Of Love" by Jah Thomas, "Whole Lot Of Loving" by The Enchanters, "Oppressor" by Tony Tuff, "Financial Problem" by Zara, "Annie Palmer (12" mix)" by Papa Ritchie, "Mr Landlord (12" mix)" by Michael Palmer, "Road Block" by Carl & Gibby, "General" by Ranking Joe, and "It's My Home (12" mix)" by Lorna Bennett.

Fashion/Soul Jazz (UK), 1980s/1990s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $19.99 22.99
An overdue look at London's Fashion Records label – an important reggae imprint that was to the British scene of the late 20th Century what Trojan was in the 70s! But Fashion also had a quality that did them one better – they recorded and issued work that originated in the UK – documenting a reggae scene that had grown to be as important as Kingston by that time – thanks to trans-Atlantic flows of vinyl, and a fair bit of immigration from the West Indies too! The music here is strongly in the styles that really exploded in London during the stretch – and early digital dancehall material is offset by sharp-edged jungle rhythms, and warmed up by some lover's rock too – but always with a quality that's earthy, and very close to the streets. The label was run out of the basement of the Dub Vendor record store, which gave them a great ear for changes in sound and styles – and they've got a fascinating story that's fully documented here in the notes, in best Soul Jazz fashion. Titles include "Let's Dub It Up" by Dee Sharp, "Dance Pon De Corner" by Papa Face featuring Red Man, "Shot Fe Bust (Marvellous Cain rmx)" by Poison Chang, "Wikkeda" by General Levy & Hard N Pure, "Played By This Ya Sound" by Bunny General, "You're Nicked" by Laurel & Hardy, "Rising To The Top" by Dee Sharp, "To The Bump" by Papa Face & Bionic Rhona, "As You See It" by Cutty Ranks, "Bubble With I" by Asher Senator, "Ruffest Gun Ark (DJ rap mix)" by Top Cat, "DJ Business" by Papa San, "You'll Never Need Somebody" by Janice Walker, "DJ Jamboree" by Papa Face with Keith Douglas, "Heat" by General Levy, and "Sweet Soul Rocking" by Carlton Lewis.

A landmark album – not just in Brazilian music, but in all modern music in general! The set's a legendary manifesto for the Tropicalia movement in Brazil – and features key works by all the leading musical luminaries in the movement – including a few later stars who are heard here at their most edgey!

RCA/Koch, 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really incredible record from the great Gary Burton – a key 60s set that definitely has him finding a musical voice that's all his own – a way of using the vibes that nobody else had ever attempted before! The instrument is a flurry of chromatic beauty – tones and light exploding at each new twist and turn – mixed here with superb work from a quartet that includes Larry Coryell on guitar, Steve Swallow on bass, and Roy Haynes on drums! The names of the players alone might be enough to give you a picture of the sound – but let us go onto say that the overall approach is amazing – angular, jagged, and more rhythmic than melodic – but equally swinging, in sort of a modal way. Tracks include "Ballet", "One Two 1234", "Liturgy", "Response", "General Mojo's Well Laid Plan", and "Sweet Rain". CD

Carn's got this burning, righteous quality on his keys – a vibe that certainly owes something to Larry Young, but also takes off even further – working in a spiritual ensemble that also features his wife Jean Carn on vocals – sounding way more like a righteous jazz singer than on her later soul sides for Philly International! Other players are great, too – and include Charles Tolliver on flugelhorn, Garnett Brown on trombone, George Harper on tenor and soprano sax, Buster Williams on bass, and Alphonse Mouzon on drums. Tracks include "New Moon", "Trance Dance", "My Spirit", "Blue In Green", and "Arise & Shine". CD

The group's a very hip one – with Stanley Cowell on piano, Miroslav Vitous on bass, and Jack DeJohnette on drums – and titles include "For Jane", "All The Things You Are", "Major General", "The Song Is You", "One Note Samba", and "Folk Tune For Bass".

An amazing moment from The Who – and from the UK rock scene in general – as Tommy is one of the most fully-conceived concept albums ever recorded – a masterful effort that's still pretty hard to match all these many years later! Pete Townshend really knocked it out of the park with this one – and pushed the group way way past the simpler songs the were recording just a year before – into this deeply introspective territory, spun out both in the album's words and music. The Tommy tale's been well told many times over the years – so we won't bother with the full narrative – but just let us say that it's hard to go wrong with this one, an essential item in any collection of adventurous rock – classic or otherwise. Titles include "The Acid Queen", "It's A Boy", "Sally Simpson", "Miracle Cure", "Pinball Wizard", "Do You Think It's Alright", "Cousin Kevin", "Christmas", "Tommy's Holiday Camp", "I'm Free", and "We're Not Gonna Take It".

Cultures Of Soul, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pretty fantastic selection of rare disco tracks from the American underground – all of them infused with a spiritual message, but served up with grooves that go head to head with some of the best underground club of the time! The mix of positive energy and upbeat grooves is wonderful – and if you've ever heard the Clark Sisters club classic "You Brought The Sunshine", then you'll definitely know the spirit of these tunes! If you're worried about the message being one that you're not into, don't – because there's sort of a universal spirit going on here – one that gets past conventions of the church, and which really goes for a general uplifting message that's totally great – almost a precursor to some of the positive house in more recent decades. And speaking of house, there's less of that here than you'd expect – as most of the instrumentation and production are strongly in the best New York underground modes from the disco years – with less of any 80s or electro soul elements. Titles include "I Believe" by Calvin B Rhone, "Imitations" by Johnson Family Gospel Singers, "Change" by Wisdom, "On That Other Shore" by Harrison Jones & The Voices Of Harmony, "I've Been Converted" by The Converters, "Ain't No Way To Do Wrong" by New Creation, "Take It To The Streets" by Prophecy, "Let The Lord Come In Your Life" by Wisdom, "Keep The Fire" by Paradise, and "Jesus Is On The Mainline" by Mr Jesse R McGuire.

CD 1 features three Axelrod classics for Warner/Reprise – the Electric Prunes albums Mass In F Minor and Release Of An Oath – plus the lesser-known, self-titled set by Pride! The Electric Prunes albums are well known, but the Pride album is equally great – a spare, airy album co-penned with MT Axelrod, and featuring Spanish guitar, vibes, and other sweet instrumental elements amidst the vocals – all set to gently funky rhythms that echo some of Axelrod's best work at Capitol. Pride titles include "Proud Sorrow", "A Hope", "The Death Of Juan Diaz", "The Truth", "Returning Home", and "Song Of The Pirate" – alongside Electric Prunes titles that include "Gloria", "Credo", "Benedictus", "Kol Nidre", "Individual Confessional", and "Our King The Father". CD 2 features 18 more rare tracks – all instrumental versions of tunes recorded during the Electric Prunes albums – totally great because they don't have any vocals at all, and really let you concentrate on Axelrod's amazing orchestrations and funky backings!

Capitol, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the greatest records of all time – and don't you forget it! Despite the countless lines of type that have been written about this record, nothing does it full justice like an all-through listen – something we're reminded of every time we put this one on the turntable, which is a heck of a lot over the years! Brian Wilson busted his ass making this little gem – and the rest of the world, and the band, were never the same again – awash in harmonies that most other groups tried to match, set to themes of young loss, longing, and frustration that really mark an emotional development – not just in the Beach Boys, but in pop music in general. And although some of the tracks are ones you've heard a million times on oldies stations, they somehow resonate together much more strongly here – taking on new meaning as the smaller elements of each song come into constellation with each other – creating a complicated tapestry of feelings set to near-godlike orchestrations. Titles include "God Only Knows", "Caroline No", "Pet Sounds", "I Just Wasn't Made for These Times", "Wouldn't It Be Nice", and "You Still Believe In Me". LP, Vinyl record album

The music is a great mix of mellow moods and funkier moments – spare, piano or keyboard-tinged tunes, which are then offset by more driving numbers that push along with fast guitar, heavy drums, and the general sort of groove you might expect in cop show work of the 70s! Cipriani always does a good job of bringing in some lyrical, more sensitive elements to his music – things that really keep things light, while also creating a rich sense of feeling – quite a bit different than slicker US police work of the period. CD features 22 tracks in all – a nicely groovy mix of styles! CD

A long-overdue look at the amazing Clark Sisters – a fantastic gospel group, and one with a vocal depth that we'd put right up there next to any of our favorite soul acts of the time! The Clarks are maybe best known for their landmark track "You Brought The Sunshine" – a completely righteous blend of gospel, soul, and disco that crossed over very big back in the day – but the group have an endless amount of great music to offer, a great deal of which is brought together in this wonderful set! The sisters always kept a strong ear towards the secular soul styles of their day – but they also always pushed things with the sort of amazing vocal interplay that used to only be the territory of male gospel groups in earlier decades – fantastic harmonies, soaring leads, and really great group formation. And if you're not a completely huge fan of gospel, don't worry – because the message here is often a more general one of positivity, which really lifts up the spirit of the tunes in a universal way. Titles include "You Brought The Sunshine (single edit)", "Everything Is Gonna Be Alright", "He Keeps Me Company", "Patience", "I'm Going To Have Just What I Want", "Power", "Overdose Of The Holy Ghost", "My Mind Is Made Up", "Nothing To Lose All To Gain", "No Other Name", "Keep On Looking Up", and "I Found What I'm Looking For".

Virgin/EG (UK), 1978. Used ... Out Of Stock
A landmark moment – both for Brian Eno, and for experimental music in general! Although Eno began his solo run with some searing, guitar-heavy records that were even wilder than his early work with Roxy Music – he also began experimenting with more sensitive aspects of sound on albums like Another Green World and Before & After Science – an approach he takes here to the farthest degree, by opening up himself and creating a whole new genre of ambient music in the process! Gone are the raspy, sometimes nasty vocals – and in their place is virtually nothing – just beautifully open music that uses scores that are somewhat cyclical – but at a pace that's very different than the minimalism of the period – and maybe even more minimal too. The record features four long tracks, one with piano by Robert Wyatt – really beautiful stuff, like some strange dark sonic crystal that fell out of the skies years ago, and which still remains a mystery to all ears that stumble upon it!

The tracks are long, and rhythmically pulsing – perhaps that's the inspiration from Bollywood – but they're also never too standard, or aiming for any sort of groove – as most moments are more spun out from Terry Riley minimalism, but mixed with the playfulness of 70s Japanese electronics from Hosono and some of his best contemporaries. Ryuichi Sakamoto plays keyboards on the set, and titles include "Hepatitis", "Hum Ghar Sajan", "Madam Consul General Of Madras", and the long "Malabar Hotel" suite. LP, Vinyl record album

Yet Misha really brought the ICP, and the European scene in general, a special sort of energy – dynamic improvisation that matched the best of his generation, but a sense of warmth and wit that are completely unique – carried on here in great ways by the group, who are expanded with the addition of the Niew Amsterdams Peil – which makes for a much larger group than usual, with the addition of instrumentation that includes bassoon, mandolin, and panflute – in addition to more familiar saxes, trumpet, trombone, piano, and cello. The music is wonderfully playful – effortlessly swinging between structure and freedom – and titles include "De Hondemepper", "Pools & Pals", "A La Russe", "Cro Magnon Nights", "Een Hutje Van Gras", "Dressoir", and "De Purperen Softa".

A legendary set from the Canadian 60s underground – a landmark record from a group who've gone onto become huge over the years with psych collectors, even though they never cracked the charts (or the US market) at the time! The set's way more than just another obscure rock release – as it's got a sharpness, tightness, and sense of songcraft that matches some of the bigger names in the US scene at the time – put together with a style that knows when to open up, but never loses itself in self-indulgence either. There's some surprisingly strong harmonies throughout the tunes – which often have a fuzzy, rollicking edge, but without losing sight of the sunny groove – and titles include "Epistle To Paradise", "Shadows Of Your Mind", "Art's A Happy Man", "Bridge Under A Sky", the epic centerpiece "You Don't Care", "Face Behind The Sun", "Dainty General Rides", and "Civilization Machine".

One of the few cases in jazz where an oft-played classic still resonates with power! The record itself is a key cap to Miles Davis' already-groundbreaking years of the 60s – a bold step forward, not just for his nascent electric sound, but also for jazz in general – and the benchmark by which so many other records would be judged (and fail) in years to come! The double-length set makes full use of all four sides of the record – expanding the flow (as well as the lineup) of the original Davis modal vision – and using all players to amazing effect, so much so that most players here turn out some of their best recorded work ever! The lineup is virtually a whose who for the sound of fusion in the 70s – including Wayne Shorter on soprano sax, Bennie Maupin on bass clarinet, Joe Zawinul and Chick Corea on keyboards, John McLaughlin on guitar, Dave Holland on bass, and Lenny White and Jack DeJohnette on drums – plus Jumma Santos and Don Alias on added percussion.

A pair of great albums from the overlooked Ars Nova – back to back in a single set! First up is the 1968 self-titled Ars Nova – a wonderful little set of post-folk rock – with lots of lovely baroque touches! Ars Nova were really short-lived group – known for only two rare records – but they've got a sound that perfectly sums up a generation! There's a wonderful LA late 60s sound here – somewhere between Love and The Byrds, with the baroque touches of the former and the best country influences of the latter – all wrapped up in earnest, honest songwriting that makes even the ambitious moments come across with surprising charm. A true lost relic, and the kind of record that should be in any late 60s cannon! Titles include "Album In Your Mind", "Pavan For My Lady", "General Clover Ends A War", "And How Am I To Know", "Fields Of People", "Automatic Love", and "Song To The City". Sunshine & Shadows is the second tripped-out set from Ars Nova – an under-remembered late 60s group who had a great talent for blending together a range of different styles! At some level, Ars Nova share qualities with some of the harder-jamming groups of their time – but they've also got a sound that expands to bring in folk, blues, jazz, and more baroque elements – played by the group with a lineup that includes some nice work on trumpet by Jimmy Owens, who at this point was a core member of the combo. Brooks Arthur handled the overall music direction, with a quality that recalls some of his work on Verve – and the album features the wonderful bossa-styled groover "Walk On The Sand", a romping soul jazz take on Jimmy Owens' "You Had Better Listen", and the cuts "Rubbish", "Please Don't Go Now", "Temporary Serenade", "She Promises Everything", and "Round Once Again".

✨✧ CachaoJam Session With Feeling – Descargas Cubanas ... CD
Maype, Early 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Killer Cuban sounds from Cachao – a set that's definitely done with the "feeling" promised in the title! Jazz is at the core of the set – lots of great instrumental interplay between piano and percussion, tres and trumpet, and bass, of course – guiding the whole thing along strongly from the bottom, and really ensuring that the instrumental modes of the set keep on cooking throughout! There's really very little vocals, and the recording quality has a great sharp edge – way better than some of Cachao's bigger recordings from later years. Titles include "Marta", "La Floresta", "Juan Pescao", "Descarga General", "Y Tu Que Has Hecho", "El Nino Toca El Tres", "La Bayamesa", "A Buscar Camarones", and "Rendencion". CD

✨✧ Stelvio CiprianiPoliziotto Senza Paura (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Digitmovies (Italy), 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Cool Italian cop soundtrack work from Stelvio Cipriani – easily one of the true masters of the genre! The music is a great mix of mellow moods and funkier moments – spare, piano or keyboard-tinged tunes, which are then offset by more driving numbers that push along with fast guitar, heavy drums, and the general sort of groove you might expect in cop show work of the 70s! Cipriani always does a good job of bringing in some lyrical, more sensitive elements to his music – things that really keep things light, while also creating a rich sense of feeling – quite a bit different than slicker US police work of the period. LP features 16 tracks in all – a nicely groovy mix of styles! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ 100 Proof Aged In Soul100 Proof Aged In Soul (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Hot Wax/Demon (UK), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A stone burner from 100 Proof Aged In Soul – a group who really take off with this tight second record! The album's a classic from the days when soul music ruled AM radio on both sides of the tracks – and the rest of the album is equally great – packing that tight post-Motown punch that made the Hot Wax label one of the best proponents of Detroit soul in the 70s! Arrangements are by a huge amount of early 70s heavyweights – McKinley Jackson, Paul Riser, and HB Barnum – and the set was produced by General Johnson and Greg Perry, in a style that soars along with the Chairmen Of The Board albums of the time. Titles include "Words", "I Don't Care If I Never Get Over You", "Everything Good Is Bad", "Ghetto Girl", "Nothing Sweeter Than Love", and "Don't You Wake Me". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sons of TruthMessage From The Ghetto (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Stax/Craft, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the most righteous albums ever issued by Stax Records – from the title of the record, to the cover, to the grooves laid down by the group! The album was originally issued on Truth – the gospel subsidiary of Stax – and while it does have a bit of a spiritual component, the group's also plenty darn funky too – and the record has a feel that's far more secular than most other gospel records of the time! In fact, the whole thing may well stand as one of the best mainstream examples of the funky gospel genre of the 70s – one of the few records of this type issued on a slightly bigger label, even though the set still is something of a rarity! There's plenty of fuzzy guitar and electric piano in the mix – and the religion in the song lyrics is fairly buried in most cuts, and the overall approach is more one of general spiritualism and humanity, than it is preachy and churchy. Tracks include "The Ghetto", "Son Of The Deacon", "Give It Up", "God Bless The Children", and "He's All We Need". LP, Vinyl record album

Elis Regina & Antonio Carlos JobimElis & Tom ... CD
Philips/Universal (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $13.99 About July 21, 2021 (delayed)
An incredible album – and a landmark session that showed that the bossa nova was still alive and well in the 1970s! The album pairs the breathy jazz vocals of Elis Regina with the booze-soaked warmth of Antonio Carlos Jobim – in a set of spare arrangements that feature a lot of touches from Cesar Carmargo Mariano, whose work on Elis Regina's 70s sessions is still the stuff of legend! Elis' vocals dominate, but when Tom comes in, the result is even more spectacular – especially given the generally light instrumentation used on most tracks – which means that the vocals carry the bulk of the sound on the set! Includes the pair's sublime duet on "Aguas de Marco", plus the tracks "Fotografia", "Brigas, Nunca Mais", "Retrato Em Branco E Preto", "Chovendo No Roseira", "Modinha", and "Triste". CD

Marlena ShawSpice Of Life ... CD
Cadet, 1969. New Copy ... $11.99
An amazing batch of sophisticated soul tracks – and a favorite with the righteous groove scene! On the surface, the record's a combination of jazz and soul tracks in the same mode that you'd find on some of Nancy Wilson's albums for Capitol during the same time – but digging deeper, you'll find an undercurrent of politics, feminism, and social commentary delivered with surprising intensity. Marlena Shaw's voice is generally sweet, but she's set up in some extremely powerful arrangements by Richard Evans and Charles Stepney that recast even the simplest phrase into a whole new setting of strength and pride – and Bobby Miller of Dells fame also helped make the record what it is, and helped write some of the best songs on the record. The set includes Marlena's classic original reading of "Woman Of The Ghetto", which has been sampled by just about everyone, plus "California Soul", which has a nice hard break, and the tunes "Liberation Conversation", "Where Can I Go?", and the original version of "Go Away Little Boy" – as sweet a statement of womanhood if there ever was one!

VariousWith Love – A Pot Of Flowers (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Big Beat (UK), 1967. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
A sweet sampling of late 60s psyche from the American underground – a collection of work by different groups who represent some of the most obscure artists on the Mainstream label at the time – fleshed out here with a slew of bonus tracks that more than doubles the running time of the original album! The work here is all generally pretty hard rocking – heavy on guitars, with lots of fuzz – sometimes in support of sweeter-styled lyrics and a dreamier, more melodic feel, other times set to darker and more hallucinatory themes. The 12 original album tracks include "Hungry Women" and "No Me Tomorrow" by Euphoria, "Wind Dream" and "Baby Dear" by The Wildflower, "My Dear & Kind Sir" and "I Think I'm Down" by The Harbinger Complex, and "Walking Down The Road" and "Streetcar" by The Other Side. There's a stunning 13 bonus tracks (!!!) – mono single versions of Wild Flower, Otherside, Euphoria and Harbinger Complex tracks and mid 60s cuts by alternate Mainstream & Brent combos The New Dawn, The Word, The Ban, Thee Unusuals and The Ariel! Includes "Slave Of Desire" by New Dawn, "Now It's Over" and "So Little Time" by The Word, "Place Of Sin" by The Word, "I Could Go On" by Thee Unusuals and more. Includes a 24-page booklet with group histories and other notes. Killer! CD

✨✧ Donald ByrdEthiopian Knights (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Blue Note, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Sweet electric funk – in a very trippy style, and very different than the later funky fusion from trumpeter Donald Byrd! Before Byrd hooked up with Larry Mizell and started recording his smooth fusion grooves of the mid 70s – on records like Blackbyrd and Street Lady – he recorded this gem, kind of a "lost" album that has Donald working in an open-ended electric sound – one that's clearly inspired by the experiments of Miles Davis, but which has a generally funkier feel overall! The tracks are very long – with lots of spiraling keyboard and trumpet solos – and the hip players on the set include Bobby Hutcherson on vibes, David T Walker on guitar, Harold Land on tenor, and Joe Sample on organ – a very cool combo that's got a cross between The Crusaders and the Hutcherson/Land quintet! We love the tracks on this set – especially "The Emperor" and "The Little Rasti", which are both over 15 minutes long, and have a haunting spacey sound that's a departure from Donald's usual work!
