✨✧ Kevin Ayers/John Cale/Brian Eno/NicoJune 1, 1974 ... CD
Island/Elemental (Spain), 1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A seminal live set that brings together the best talents from mid 70s leftfield rock – a unique meeting of Brian Eno, Kevin Ayers, John Cale, Nico, Robert Wyatt, and Mike Oldfield! The concert is one that was initially Ayers' gig – but he had the foresight to invite the others along – and the result is a brilliant criss-crossing of modes that draws on the legacy of Roxy Music, Soft Machine, and The Velvets – but which bristles with the darker moments of each players' solo career. Ayers sings on about half the set – but Nico also turns in a reading of her take on "The End", and Eno sings on versions of his classics "Baby's On Fire" and "Driving Me Backwards". Other tracks include "May I", "Stranger In Blue Suede Shoes", "Two Goes Into Four", and "Heartbreak Hotel". CD

Morning GloryTwo Suns Worth ... LP
Fontana, 1968. Very Good ... $11.99
A bit more rough-edged than some of their late 60s contemporaries, but a group who's definitely got some Sunshine Pop leanings! The group features mixed male and female lead vocals – often with one more strongly out front – and a sound that's sunny, but also pretty fuzzy too – with an emphasis on the guitar parts that no doubt comes from the trippier production efforts of Abe "Voco" Kesh, and possibly from John Cale – who helped out engineering the session. There's a nice edge to most numbers – a sense of sweetness that's often trying to shake itself loose with a big more grit and growl – and titles include "Stone Good Day", "Even When I'm Up I'm Down", "Jelly Gas Flame", "I See A Light", "Need Someone", "I Cry", "Hey Little Girl", and "So Glad Being Here".

NicoMarble Index ... LP
Elektra, 1968. Near Mint- ... $39.99
Amazingly spooky stuff from Nico! The album's only Nico's second solo album – after the legendary Chelsea Girls for Verve – but it's got a spark, stark, totally-drained quality that's immediately gripping. John Cale handled production, and he's working here with Nico in a junkie haze of violin, harmonium, and other jagged instrumentation – all set to perfectly balance against the flatness and lack of emotion in the vocals, in a way that still sends chills up our spine every time we hear it! The whole thing's great – and titles include "Julius Caesar", "Evening Of Light", "Lawns Of Dawn", "Ari's Song", "Facing The Wind", and "Frozen Warnings". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ StoogesStooges ... LP
Elektra, 1969. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
A record that no home should be without – and a stunning set that still carries all the raw power it did way back in 1969! The album's an apocalyptic vision of the future – a future it helped to shape, give its influence over the years – and from start to finish, the whole thing is brilliant – from the raw energy of the band, to the sneering lyrics of Iggy Pop, to the perfect production by John Cale – who's opening up a whole new side of his genius with his studio work here. The set begins with the boldly declarative "1969" – maybe one of our favorite Stooges songs ever – then moves into the landmark "I Wanna Be Your Dog", over to the ten minute freakout of "We Will Fall", to the classic "No Fun", through the cuts "Real Cool Time", "Ann", "Not Right", and "Little Doll". Imitated by many, but never done this well again – and a record that will most likely still be blowing the minds of our grandkids! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Velvet UndergroundLoaded ... LP
Cotillion, 1970. Near Mint- ... $99.99
The end of the road for the Velvet Underground – but a set that's also one of the group's best-remembered albums too! The record marked a big shift for the group – a move to Atco from Verve, continuing to work without John Cale – and the sound is possibly more rockish and straight ahead than some of their previous efforts (certainly compared to White Light/White Heat) – but always with that dark edge that Lou Reed could bring to the music! In a way, the whole thing's almost a recasting of all the advances made in 60s rock, but seen through a lens that shows the darker corners and shadows that have crept up alongside – that kind of subtle, yet extremely powerful quality that Reed would bring to his long run of solo albums in the 70s – but served up here with more of an edge, in the definite VU fashion. Titles include the seminal classics – "Sweet Jane" and "Rock & Roll", plus "Cool It Down", "New Age", "Head Held High", "Lonesome Cowboy Bill", "Oh Sweet Nuthin", and "I Found A Reason".

VariousWhen Day Is Done – The Orchestrations Of Robert Kirby ... CD
Ace (UK), Early 70s. Used ... $9.99
The cover and title are both a reference to the late Nick Drake – and Drake's music is the way that most people know the talents of Robert Kirby – a fantastic arranger who helped bring a whole new level of melancholy and sophistication to British music at the start of the 70s! Kirby's strings are one of the elements that have always made Drake's Five Leaves Left album so wonderful – and around the same time, he also worked with a number of other English acts in similar modes – that unique post-folk period in which all previous standards and styles were broken open, and presented with a depth that's still strongly appreciated all these many years later! This is the first tribute to Kirby we've ever seen, and it's lovingly put together by Bob Stanley – the man who gave us the excellent English Weather compilation, a great partner to this one. Titles include "Rainbow River" by Vashti Bunyan, "Forest & The Shore" by Keith Christmas, "Ophelia's Song" by Shelagh McDonald, "What Memories We Make" by Dana Gillespie, "Gimme An Inch Girl" by Ian Matthews, "Madonna Blue" by Illusion, "First Light" by Richard & Linda Thompson, "Honour Bright" by Shirley Collins, "Love Is A Funny Thing" by Spirogyra, "White Witch" by Spriguns, "Dancing At Whitsun" by Tim Hart & Maddy Pryor, "I Keep A Close Watch" by John Cale, and "Follow On" by Steve Ashley.

Hat & Beard, 2019. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the greatest books we've ever seen on The Velvet Underground – and one that definitely lives up to the promise of the title! The volume brings together interviews, essays, and other material over the space of the group's career, and beyond – but all mixed with vintage images, artwork, and other unusual visual elements – so that the whole thing almost feels as if it was put together by Warhol as a way to document and present the group! The book features essays and writings by Tony Conrad, Jonas Mekas, Allen Ginsberg, and members of the group – including Lou Reed, John Cale, and Sterling Morrison – and also includes side-steps on contemporaries and influences as well. 216 pages, hardcover, with images in color and black and white.

✨✧ VariousWhat's This I Hear – The Sound Of Tulsa 1957 to 1961 ... CD
Eleven Light City (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Tulsa, Oklahoma may not be the biggest city on the American scene – but at the end of the 50s, there was definitely something special going on – a strong underground of top talents and sharp-edged musical minds – which includes the great rocker Rocky Curtiss, and later stars David Gates and JJ Cale! Much of the music here is in that cross between country and early rock and roll that you might expect – maybe a bit rockabilly, but also with some Texas bluesy currents drifting through the mix at times – a clear indication of the honky tonks in which some of these artists must have been working! The package features a total of 22 gems from these early Tulsa years – and titles include "Always Be True" by The Tri-Lads, "You'll Be My Baby" by David Gates, "Ain't That Loving You Baby" by Johnny Cale Quintette, "Cool It" by Flash Terry, "Baby Shame" by Clyde Stacy, "Sneaky" by Johnny Cale, "I Hate Myself" by Ale Sweatt, "Cherry Pie" by The Tri-Lads, "Dream Lover" by Rocky Curtiss & The Harmony Flames, "What's This I Hear" by David Gates, and "The Purple Onion" by Johnny Cale.

Curtis MayfieldRoots (no calendar) ... LP
Curtom, 1970. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
One of our favorite Curtis Mayfield albums ever – a massive early 70s effort that's filled with wonderful songs all the way through, and quite possibly one of the most perfect realization of the righteous vibe of the early 70s Curtom years! Curtis is in fine form throughout – as a singer, composer, and producer – but he's also got some excellent Chicago soul help from arrangers Riley Hampton and Johnny Pate – both key talents on the 60s Windy City scene, still able to come up with a deeply soulful groove here – and both able to blend together strings and funk in the way that Curtis was going for at the time. Titles include the massive "We Got to Have Peace" – a tune that never gets old – plus "Underground", "Keep On Keepin On", "Now You're Gone", "Get Down", "Love To Keep You In Mind", and "Beautiful Brother of Mine". This copy doesn't have the calendar attached to the cover, but it's an original vinyl pressing, in great shape. LP, Vinyl record album

El (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $3.99 13.99
Two very different slices of work from the Brit easy scene at the start of the 60s – TV music from arranger John Gregory, and a set of swinging vocal sides from the great Mike Sammes Singers! Gregory dominates the first record – which is split between an album of western themes, mostly from American sources – taken at a relatively serious level with added vocals from Sammes' group. The second half of the Gregory tracks are more swinging – and feature work from The Avengers and other 60s crime/spy material. Gregory titles include "The Avengers", "Sunset Strip", "Johnny Staccato", "Route 66", "Tightrope", "Sugarfoot", "Maverick", "Bonanza", "Rawhide", and "Perry Mason". The other part of the collecvtion features excellent material from the Mike Sammes Singers – a mixed male/female group who work in a very jazzy style – clearly schooled in the vocalese of Lambert Hendricks & Ross or The Blue Stars – but also working with more of a lyrical approach, and this sprightly feel that would have been perfect on 60s TV. The arrangements are great – jazzier than they are cheesy – and titles include "Taking A Chance On Love", "Pick Yourself Up", "Passing Breeze", "Spring Spring Spring", "Nice To Know You Care", "I Know That You Know", and "Manhattan". Package also fetaures more bonus tracks from the Sammes Singers! CD

The most legendary Flesh Eaters line-up – Chris D, Dave Alvin, John Doe, Bill Bateman, Steve Berlin, and DJ Bonebrake – back with a full scale reunion for the first time in decades! Now as much as ever, The Flesh Eaters are a vessel for Chris D's smart and serious lit quality punk poetry, with macabre lyrical themes that give it a dark, distinctive edge. And what a vessel he has with these seasoned genre-defying legends from X, Los Lobos and The Blasters, all seemingly invigorated here, especially Alvin – who must love putting aside the rootsier vibe of his solo work and The Blasters once in a while – and Berlin and Bonebrake on bringing in some cool noirish R&B sax, marimba & percussion. Titles include "Black Temptation", "House Amid The Thickets", "She's Like Heroin To Me", "Miss Muerte", "Cinderella" and lots more. It gets better the deeper into the tracklist you go, too...these guys learned thing or 2 about pacing over the years! LP, Vinyl record album

Sun RaSun Song (aka Jazz By Sun Ra) ... LP
Transition/Delmark, 1956. Near Mint- ... $24.99
Sun Ra's first album as a leader – originally issued on the Transition label, but presented here in its better-known incarnation by Delmark Records! Even at this early point, Ra had a sound unlike any of his contemporaries – large group and modern, but not in a way that showed any similarities to work going on in New York or LA – a voice that was all his own, and already quite boldly stated, even in these early years! The format might be somewhat familiar – an ensemble with horns and rhythm – but the overall execution really starts to open up as the album moves on – with odd phrasings, timings, and unusual moments that live up to all the promise you might expect from Ra. Even Mingus and some of his better-known contemporaries weren't heading in these directions in the mid 50s – and the record is a proud showcase of the freedoms that players were often accorded in the less-trafficked Chicago scene of the time. Horns include Art Hoyle & Dave Young on trumpets, John Gilmore on tenor sax, Pat Patrick on baritone, Julian Priester on trombone, and James Scales on alto sax – and rhythm includes Jim Herndon on tympani, Robert Barry on drums, Wilbur Green on electric bass, and a young Richard Evans on acoustic bass! Titles include "Brainville", "Call For All Demons", "Transition", "Lullaby For Realville", "Street Named Hell", "New Horizons", "Fall Off The Long", "Possession", and "Future". LP, Vinyl record album

Ember, 1964. Very Good+ ... $14.99
An obscure one from Annie Ross – recording here as a solo act back in England after leaving her famous group with Dave Lambert and John Hendricks! The style here is a bit like some of the solo work that Ross cut in the US at the end of the 50s – particularly her sides for Pacific Jazz – not as vocalese and solo-oriented as the sort of recordings that first got her noticed, but still a lot more dynamic than most straighter jazz singers of the time! Arrangements are pretty groovy overall – nicely jazzy, and penned by Johnnie Spence – also produced by John Barry, who really helps keep the right sort of "punch" in the set. Titles include "Fly Me To The Moon", "Nature Boy", "A Lot Of Livin To Do", "Like Someone In Love", "A Handful Of Songs", and "All Of You". LP, Vinyl record album

An overstuffed package of work from Annie Ross – one that features a few key albums, plus some rare bonus tracks too! First up is A Handful Of Songs – which has Ross recording as a solo act back in England after leaving her famous group with Dave Lambert and John Hendricks! The style here is a bit like some of the solo work that Ross cut in the US at the end of the 50s – particularly her sides for Pacific Jazz – not as vocalese and solo-oriented as the sort of recordings that first got her noticed, but still a lot more dynamic than most straighter jazz singers of the time!

Titles include "Fly Me To The Moon", "Nature Boy", "A Lot Of Livin To Do", "Like Someone In Love", "A Handful Of Songs", and "All Of You". Next is A Gasser – one of Annie Ross' rare albums as a solo act away from her trio with Jon Hendricks and Dave Lambert – and a great little session cut with small combo jazz backing, which gives the song a nice swinging edge! Zoot Sims is the main soloist on the tunes, Russ Freeman lays down piano tracks to set the mood – and other players include Jim Hall, Monte Budwig, Mel Lewis, and Bill Perkins – all of whom contribute wonderfully to the album, and give it a nicely grooving west coast finish. Titles include "I Was Doing Alright", "You Took Advantage Of Me", "Lucky Day", "Lucky So & So", and "Nobody's Baby". 2CD set also features material from the London cast recording of Cranks – which features Ross with Anthony Newley – plus some songs with Lambert, Hendricks, & Ross – and the tune "Let's Fly" by Johnny Mercer & The Pied Pipers, which was written by Ross.

✨✧ George RussellNew York New York & Jazz In The Space Age ... LP
Decca/MCA, Late 50s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A 70s issue of 2 seminal sides from George Russell, originally recorded in the 50s. The first, New York New York is a wonderful album from George Russell – and a refreshing change from his overly-academic modernist work! The session's an unusual one – a musical portrait of New York City, performed with an all-star cast that includes John Coltrane, Art Farmer, Bill Evans, Phil Woods, Benny Golson, Max Roach, and Hal McKusick – all working together to paint tones on the tunes that George has crafted to set up his scene of New York in the 50s. Most importantly, though, Jon Hendricks acts as the narrator of the album – talking and scatting in hipster mode, laying out a bit of beat rapportage about the Big Apple, all done in a very cool 50s style that's a bit different from his own vocal work. Titles include "Manhattan", "Big City Blues", "Manhattan-Rico", and "A Helluva Town". And don't let the title of the second, Jazz In The Space Age, mislead you into thinking it's a record of bachelor pad musi. The set's one of Russell's finest recordings of the 50s, and it features some wonderful work in odd tones and scales, executed by another awesome cast of players, including Bill Evans, Paul Bley, Hal McKusick, Bob Brookmeyer, and David Young. An essential chapter in Russell's career, and nice to have in any form. Titles include "Chromatic Universe (parts 1, 2, & 3)", "Dimensions", "Waltz From Outer Space", and "The Lydiot".

Atlantic (Japan), 1966/1967. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Think you know the sound of Atlantic Records in the 60s? Think again – because this stunning series opens the vault to a huge amount of rare treasures from the legendary label! The package is amazing – and offers up rare tracks that were mostly only issued by Atlantic on singles – including some on the other imprints associated with the company – some by names we never even knew recorded for the label, others by bigger names, but represented here by obscure material that goes way past their hits – and which is ultra cool because of that. There's also a fair bit more deep soul than you might expect from the usual Atlantic mix – tremendous vocals, and often in less hit-heavy modes – which makes the whole thing a great revelation – and just one more reason to bow down and give even more expect to one of the key companies who helped soul music find a home in the 60s. Plus – as if that's not enough – the whole thing comes in a very cool 7" gatefold package – which emphasizes the from-singles nature of the collection. Volume 4 is filled with 50 rare tracks – loads of uncommon Atlantic singles, including some from their 50s partners – with cuts that include "Bye Bye Baby" by Ella Washington, "Sleep Good Tonight" by Sam & Dave, "What Am I Gonna Do" by Dee Dee Sharp, "Book Of Memories" by Percy Wiggins, "I've Got That Feelin" by Darrell Banks, "Let's Go Steady" by Arthur Conley, "Let Me Down Slow" by Bobby Wilson, "These Simple Reasons" by The Mad Lads, "Cool Pearl" by The Capitols, "Happiness" by The Ambassadors, "That Man Of Mine" by Jean & The Darlings, "One Plus One" by William Bell, "Left Over Love" by Mable John, "Get Down" by Harvey Scales & The Seven Sounds, "All On A Sunny Day" by Deon Jackson, "Sentimental Reasons" by Percy Wiggins, "Feels Good" by Bobby Wilson, "Bigger & Better" by Mable John, "I'll Be Loving You" by Soul Brothers Six, "Greasy Spoon" by Rufus Thomas, "Don't Say Maybe Baby" by The Capitols, "I'm So Proud Of My Baby" by The Ambassadors, "She Knows What To Do For Me" by Ben E King, "I Gotta Have My Baby's Love" by Sir Mack Rice, "Loveitis" by Harvey Scales, "Love Comes & Goes" by Arthur Conley, "The Grass Always Seems Greener" by Ella Washington, and "Behind Every Great Man There's A Woman" by Percy Sledge.

Die Schachtel (Germany), 2018. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic book released in conjunction with an Italian exhibition dedicated to Marino Zuccheri – the legendary sound engineer who helped composers like Luigi Nono, John Cage, and Bruno Maderna realize their musical visions in the recording studio! The book is in English throughout, and features images of Zuccheri's working process, documents from the studio, rare photos, and even some of Marino's writings – along with other essays and text that give perspective on his huge legacy in creative recording. There's also a bonus CD that includes the work Parete 67 – created for an exhibition in the Italian Pavilion in the Montreal Expo in 1967 – a long loop of very mood electronics, showing that Zuccheri had every bit as much creative talent as some of the artists he'd helped make recordings! There's a vibe that's almost like the moodiest French work from the musique concrete scene – many spare elements that are abstracted strongly in the proceedings, almost existing as sounds without referent. CD also features the shorter, even noisier "Plastico", from 1961. Book is 143 pages, softcover, with color and black and white images. CD

Hans Koller directs a large-scale swinging big band of some of the best European and American expatriot players of the time – like Sahib Shihab, Benny Bailey, Donald Byrd, Johnny Griffin, and Albert Mangelsdorff – and the set screams with intense solos, and a tight groove that pushes past any of the cliches you could imagine for a set like this. One of the things that makes the session great is some groovy organ, played by Infried Hoffman, the German player who was in Klaus Doldinger's early group. Doldinger's also on here, and his sound is way better than on his 70's work. Titles include "Hip Hit", "Revelation", "Conversation", "Knodel-Waltzer", and "Blazy Bones Revisited".

VariousDoo Wop Nuggets Vol 1 – Deserie ... CD
Warner (Japan), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $22.99
A really fantastic collection of unusual doo wop tunes – and one that really lives up to the "nuggets" in the title, given how obscure many of these tunes have remained over the years! The style is great – tunes that really showcase the vocal skills of these young groups – at a level that's completely amazing, both on the mellow cuts and the more upbeat numbers – all without any of the hoke or cliche that sometimes comes from the overplayed hits that can keep new listeners away from digging vintage doo wop at its best. In fact, it's probably more accurate to think of this material as group harmony soul overall – even with some of the more rock-oriented acts – as there's an approach here that undeniably helped shape the sound of soul music in years to come. Titles on this first volume include "Please Be My Love Tonight" by The Charades, "Gunga Din" by The Contenders, "Deserie" by The Charts, "I Walk Alone" by The Vocaleers, "Tonight Kathleen" by The Valentines, "I'm Spinning" by Kripp Johnson, "Bob O Link" by The Smart Tones, "Have A Heart" by The Del Rays, "One Teardrop Too Late" by Valentino & The Lovers, "At Times Like This" by The Originals, "I Wanna Chance" by the Vows, and "You Can't Even Be My Friend" by The Escorts.

1968 was the world of revolution around the world – and to our music-trained ears, one of the greatest revolutions occurred at the legendary Stax Records! Before that year, the label had been working with Atlantic Records – who totally screwed them, and took away all their catalog – leaving Stax to start completely from scratch, and reinvent themselves as an even more righteous company in the process! Make no mistake, Stax was already a pretty great company before – the leading light of the Memphis soul scene – but in 1968, the company went back to basics, and also embraced new waves of funk and blues, freed up to go into some very groovy territory. This 5CD set documents that amazing time – by bringing together all the singles released in 1968, both a-sides and b-sides – along with a big booklet of notes and photos that not only talk about the changes at the label, but also the city of Memphis in the tragic year of 1968 – which also saw the assassination of Dr Martin Luther King. The package is overflowing with as much history as it is soul music – and features over 120 songs by artists who include Booker T & The MGs, Linda Lynell, Judy Clay, Harvey Scales, Otis Redding, The Memphis Nomads, Shirley Walton, Bar-Kays, Ollie & The Nightingales, William Bell, The Goodees, Mable John, The Epsilons, The Soul Children, Mad Lads, Charmells, Lindell Hill, Jimmy Hughes, Delaney & Bonnie, Dino & Doc, Daaron Lee, Albert King, Rufus Thomas, Carla Thomas, Derek Martin, Johnnie Taylor, and many more!

✨✧ VariousSurefire Hits On Central Avenue – The South Central R&B Scene ... CD
Ace (UK), 1940s/1950s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic overview of the LA scene at the end of the 40s and into the 50s – seminal R&B work that made the city one of the greatest sources of music at the time! Before WWII, LA's recorded output was nothing much to speak of – but after the end of the war, the city really exploded as a host of small labels brought the rest of the nation work by the rich array of jazz, soul, and blues talents in the scene that had slowly been building with wartime migration from points south. The LA approach was a lot more sophisticated than that of other scenes – as audiences from previous down-home locales sought a hipper, cooler style to emphasize their new mode of living in the bigger city. Every track on here's a classic – and although you may have heard a few before, we've never seen an overview like this done so well! Titles include "Get Out Of The Car" by Richard Berry, "The Honeydripper" by Joe Liggins, "You Won't Let Me Go" by Johnny Moore, "Once There Lived A Fool" by Jimmy Grissom, "Decon's Hop" by Big Jay McNeely, "Ookey Ook" by The Penguins, "Heaven & Paradise" by Don Julian & The Meadowlarks, "Mary Lou" by Young Jessie, "Three Hours Past Midnight" by Johnny Guitar Watson, and "Pachuko Hop" by Chuck Higgins. 26 tracks in all!
