GulistanOriental Groove ... LP
Cactus/Hot Mule (France), 1986. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
A record with a new wave-looking cover – but with a sound that's a lot more acoustic overall – a really unusual blend of jazz and Balkan styles, recorded on the Vienna scene of the 80s! The group bill their music as "jazz meets the orient" – which is definitely the case, as there's long instrumental solos on most numbers spinning out over modal grooves that have a strong pulse at the core, thanks to use of electric bass alongside Turkish percussion, standard drums, and other percussion! Josef Olt plays flute and soprano sax, Adula Ibn Quadr plays violin, and Robert Schaar plays electric piano – and titles include "Cano Cano", "Kervan", "Plajda", "Nazmiye", "Deli Horoz", and "Ahtarma Meni". LP, Vinyl record album

Heerlens Percussie EnsembleBiologic Music ... LP
Hot Mule (France), 1986. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
A really unusual little album – one that partly embraces a globe's worth of acoustic percussion, partly expresses itself in the minimal percussion legacy after Steve Reich's Drumming, and partly embraces some of the electric/acoustic sounds of the New York downtown scene of the early 80s – in work by artists like David Van Tieghem or Peter Gordon! The group use a mix of vibes, balafon, marimbas, and other percussion instruments – then add in occasional beats or other electric elements, but usually in a subtle way – that blend of global and European modes that was also surfacing a bit on the Crammed label at the time. All tracks are instrumental – and titles include "Black Africa", "Back To The Factory", "Kpanlogo", "Biologic Music", and "Adowa". LP, Vinyl record album
(Comes with a bonus set of notes, and a download code!)

Ike & Tina TurnerComplete Pompeii Recordings 1968/1969 – So Fine/Cussin Cryin & Carryin On/Black Man's Soul (3CD set) ... CD
Pompeii/Goldenlane, Late 60s. New Copy 3CDs ... $18.99 19.98
Some of the greatest work ever recorded by Ike & Tina Turner – 3 albums cut for the short-lived Pompeii label, all of them nice and heavy! First up is So Fine – a great one from Ike & Tina – recorded for Ike's short-lived Pompeii subsidiary for Atlantic, with a hard heavy sound that's really great, almost a mixture of the duo's Sue sides with some of Atlantic's southern soul from the same time – but with this badass funk current that really shows the way that Ike was evolving his groove since the start of the 60s! Titles include "Too Hot To Hold", "Bet'Cha Can't Kiss Me", "Ain't Nobody's Business", "I Better Get Ta Steppin", "So Fine", "We Need An Understanding", and "A Fool In Love". Next is Cussin Cryin & Carryin On – one of Ike Turner's greatest albums ever – recorded for the Pompeii Subsidiary of Atlantic, and featuring some raw tunes that have more than a bit of funk in them! The album includes 2 killer instrumentals – "Thinking Black" and "Black Beauty" – both of which you'd be proud to own as funky 45s! Other tracks feature some hard soul vocals by Tina – and titles include "You Got What You Wanted", "So Blue Over You", "Cussin, Cryin, & Carryin On", "Make Em Wait", "I Better Get Ta Steppin", and "I'm Fed Up". The set also features the solo Ike Turner album Black Man's Soul – the only truly funky album that Ike Turner ever recorded! This set's a batch of obscure funky instrumentals – and sounds like a strong compilation of rare 45s, filled with hard funky drums, nice breaks, and plenty of super-tight grooves. Nearly every cut's a winner – and titles include "Black Angel", "Black Beauty", "Freedom Sound", "Ghetto Funk", "Funky Mule", "Nuttin' Up", "Scotty Souling", and "Thinking Black". Very nice stuff, and a real lost recording for Ike! All 3 albums are in mini-LP sleeves – like the original records. CD
