Hugh Hopper1984 (red vinyl pressing) (2020 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
CBS/Culture Factory, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
The first-ever solo album from Hugh Hopper – best known as the bassist for Soft Machine, but an equally creative artist on his own! The album is a bit more experimental, and sometimes more jazz-based, than Hugh's work in the bigger group – a blend of odd acoustic sounds with slight electronic elements – sometimes a bit abstract, sometimes a lot more focused and tuneful! The album's a key underground expression from the bigger UK jazz rock scene of the time – proof that its more adventurous roots were still present in the best players – and Hopper's work here on bass, percussion, and mellophone is augmented by a shifting array of players who include John Marshall on percussion, Gary Windo on tenor sax, Malcolm Griffiths and Nick Evans on trombone, Lol Coxhill on soprano sax, and Pye Hastings on guitar. Titles include "Miniluv", "Minipax 1", "Minitrue", "Miniplenty", "Miniluv Reprise". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Soft Head (Hugh Hopper/Elton Dean/Alan Gowen/DaveSheen)Rogue Element (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Ogun (UK), 1978. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
That's Soft Head, not Soft Heap – which is another way of saying that the fantastic music here is yet another strong evolution of the original Soft Machine sound! The quartet features bass from Hugh Hopper and amazing work from Elton Dean on alto and saxello – plus sweet electric piano and electronics from Alan Gowen and drums from Dave Sheen – all spinning out in ways that are right up there with some of the jazziest late work by Soft Machine – no vocals at all, and more than enough free-thinking ideas to have placed the record on the avant jazz label Ogun. Gowen's electric piano is maybe worth the price of the record alone, and Dean is tremendous too – as the group work in a great late flowering of Canterbury ideals, on the titles "Seven Drones", "Seven For Lee", "Remain So", "CRRC", and "One Three Nine". CD features the unissued bonus tracks "C You Again" and "Ranova". CD

✨✧ Roger GloverButterfly Ball & The Grasshopper's Feast (limited purple vinyl – with bonus tracks) (2019 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Purple/Cherry Red (UK), 1974. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Roger Glover steps aside from Deep Purple – and delivers one of his strangest records of the 70s – an oddly glammy, hard rock interpretation of material from the children's book of the same name! The set actually scored a surprising hit with the very catchy "Love Is All" – which features Ronnie James Dio on vocals – and the set features Dio singing on a few other cuts, "Sitting In A Dream" and "Homeward" – then features Glover working with other singers who include Jimmy Helms on "Waiting", Eddie Hardin on "Sir Maximus Mouse", Tony Ashton on "Together Again", and Glenn Hughes on "Get Ready". Glover produced – and the whole thing is way cooler than you might expect! 2LP version features great bonus material – a full side of demos and alternate mixes of tracks from the record, plus the single-only "Little Chalk Blue" – and a second side that features selections from the Roger Glover Butterfly Ball radio special in 1974! LP, Vinyl record album
