✨✧ John BarryKnack & How To Get It ... LP
United Artists, 1965. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An incredibly groovy soundtrack that's also one of the best-ever scores written by John Barry – a masterpiece of jazzy scoring that never gets old! There's some wicked use of Hammond in the main theme – played by Brit jazzer Alan Haven – a catchy little groove that dances nicely as the record unfolds – over rhythms that feature a snapping snare that's equally great! Barry brings in just a touch of the James Bond boldness, then mixes it with these warmer jazz leanings – all in a blend that's quite unique, and which easily makes the score one of our favorites of the 60s. A young Michael Crawford sings a great vocal version of the theme – "The Knack" – and other tracks include "Photo Strip", "Doors & Bikes & Things", "Ecstasy", "Three On A Bed", and "Blues & Out".

Girl Named NinoMoonlight Daughter ... CD
Moonlight Daughter, 2018. Used ... $0.99
Captivating, genre-defying indie soul from Girl Named Nino – a girl originally from Tbilisi, Georgia who has long called the Chicago area home, has a sound as far reaching as her travels, but it still feels intimate and personal! Her voice is front-and-center throughout Moonlight Daughter, in both the vocals and in the distinctive songcraft, and it's strong on both fronts. As a singer, she has a way of balancing classic jazz vocal influences with more modern soul, global/multi-lingual pop and even a bit of hip hop. Likewise with the songs and the production. Nino and partner Pablo Gordy – who together handle all of the writing, arranging, production and instrumentation – have this knack for layering styles and sounds, but with such strong songwriting core, they can no doubt play even the most lushly-produced songs here in a stripped down setting without losing the heart and soul of it. Titles include "Moonlight Daughter (Flowers To The Moon)", "Whiskey & Cigarettes (Chaser)", "Little Lady (Keep Your Lights On)", "Four Letter Words (Siren)", "The Revolution (Lost At The Bazaaar)", "Jukebox Joint (Heard You, Watched You)", "As We Love (Asa Nisi Masa", "Valentine" and "Deda (Mother)".

Steve LacyThreads ... LP
Horo/Alternative Fox (UK), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
A real standout in the 70s catalog of reedman Steve Lacy – and that's saying a lot, given that he gave us so many fantastic records in the decade! The album's proof that the Horo Records label had a great knack for capturing key players in some different, but fantastic formations – and here, Lacy is blowing soprano sax alongside ex-MEV members Alvin Curran and Frederic Rzewski – in a unique quality that's very different than many of Lacy's other recordings of the 70s. Curran's got his usual mad edge – and plays synthesizer, percussion, and flugelhorn – while Rzewski contributes some nicely restrained dark lines on acoustic piano. Titles include "Skirts", "Threads", "Rabbit", and "Broils". LP, Vinyl record album

Linda LewisHeart Strings ... LP
Reprise, 1974. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Great stuff from Linda Lewis – one of the sweetest soul talents of the 70s! Linda's got a great jazzy vocal style that's somewhere between Minnie Riperton and other more folksy singers, like Ellen McIlwaine, and she's really got a knack for writing great little tracks that have a good groove to them. This album's sort of a combination of tracks from some of her other Reprise albums, plus a few others that didn't appear elsewhere. It includes her classic "Sideways Shuffle", which is always a big hit with the groove scene, plus lots of other nice ones, including "Fathoms Deep", "On The Stage", "I Dunno", and "I'm In Love Again". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a promo sticker.)

PiscesLovely Sight ... CD
Numero, Late 60s. Used ... $11.99
Rare late 60s psychedelia from blue collar Rockford, Il – a totally great lost album of pop psych tunefulness from Pisces – who had an incredible knack for experimental sounds that weave in and out of the hallucinatory pop structure! The group centered around core players Jim Krein and Paul DiVenti, and a number of the tunes have fragile, beautiful lead vocals by Linda Bruner, bringing in a bit of Velvets style stark, haunting loveliness – and most of the tracks languished unreleased all this time! This is essentially the first real release of almost all of the tunes, and the best shot at finding an adventurous audience any of it has ever had! We think this stuff would have been hugely influential had it found an audience in its time, hell, it sounds to us like it actually did influence countless groups, even though that's hardly even possible! There's a tunefulness at the center that bears the fruits of the experimental pop sounds that came from benchmark scenes of the era, from Haight Ashbury to Abbey Road – but the found sound ephemera, tape manipulations, and tripped out atmospherics really bring in some far out vibes! An essential discovery from Numero that's as exciting, insistently groovy and eclectic as any of the rock oriented stuff they've dug up to date! Titles include "Dear One", "Children Kiss Your Mother Goodnight", "Motley Mary Ann", "Say Goodbye To John", "The Music Box", "Like A Hole In The Wall Where The Rat Lives", "Elephant Eyes", "Circle Of Time" and more – plus the "extended play" bonus tracks "A Flower For All Seasons" and "In The Summer A Grape Grows".

✨✧ Markus RutzBlueprints Figure One – Frameworks ... CD
Origin, 2020. New Copy ... $13.99
Heartfelt yet exciting work from Chicago trumpeter Markus Rutz – heavy on originals, but with some distinctive takes on classics by Wayne Shorter, Charlie Parker and another couple of covers – showing love and appreciation for his influences in music and life in general with a wonderful volume of jazz, covering a lot of stylistic terrain while keeping it cohesive and close to home. Markus has a great knack for project driven jazz without getting bogged down in concept album cliche or overworked plotting – his previous showing strong ties to his Chicago and Illinois roots, this one paying homage to family and mentors, in timeless musical form. Players include Brice Winston, Adrian Ruiz, Matt Gold, Marcos Varela, Xavier Breaker, Marcus Evans and Heitor Garcia. Includes "The Compass", "The Musicianer", "Gusto, As In Mucho", "Limbo", "September In The Rain", "Syndrome", "Shipmates", "and "Segment". CD

SkySailor's Delight ... LP
RCA, 1971. Near Mint- ... $11.99
Pre-The Knack work from a young Doug Fieger, who already seems to have a great ear for a hook – although in a way that's different than that later group's work! The style here is a mix of more introspective numbers and some fuller tunes that have a nice kick and a bit of fuzz, and some great help on horns from Bobby Keys and Jim Price! LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some light wear, but this is a nice copy overall.)

Elektra/Duophonic, 1997. New Copy 3LPs (reissue)... $28.99 29.99
Stereolab at a creative peak! Dots & Loops continues their long running 90s win streak – here balancing their ever present love for bubbling analog synth and breezy vintage electronics with a more strongly assured knack for delivering brilliant beginning-to-end excellent albums. The band is as great as ever, featuring tracks recorded right here in Chicago with John McEntire, and with some guest work by Sean O'Hagan of the High Llamas, plus Jan St Werner and Andi Toma of Mouse On Mars.

VariousDisco Demands Vol 6 ... CD
Million Dollar Disco/BBE (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99 19.99
Classic cuts, made even better by the magic hands of Al Kent – a mixing talent we've trusted for years, and one with an uncanny knack for making the same kind of special sounds you'd hear on a rare club edit from back in the day! These tracks aren't remixed, or bogged down with new musical touches – they're just pulled apart and reconstructed in ways that make the initial grooves even better, and which often extends the tunes to great new lengths – but never in a way that gets too overdone or predictable! Al Kent's got ears that feel like they've never left the 70s, and he really keeps things right throughout – on a list of tracks that includes "I Wanna Love" by Jo Bisso, "Doin Your Own Thing" by Tangerue, "You Never Loved Me" by Ava Cherry, "Givin Back The Feeling" by George McCrae, "Fire Keep On Burning" by King Sporty, "San Salvador" by Grupo Macho, "You Like It We Love It" by Southroad Connection, "Wonder Woman" by JD Hall, and "Keep On Moving" by Phillip & Lloyd. Plus, CD version features a bonus disc of a continuous mix of all the tracks! CD

✨✧ Los SecretosLos Secretos (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Polydor/Elemental (Spain), 1981. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A power-pop classic from early 80s Spain – the debut of Los Secretos, a group with a sound that's very much in keeping with their look on the cover! We might put this one right in the territory of the classic debut by The Knack – as these guys have a similar sort of tightness, and a great way of bridging generations with their straightforward approach, and super-catchy ear for a tune! Lyrics are all in Spanish, but there's a really universal appeal to the whole thing – and titles include "Me Aburro", "Nino Mimado", "Dejame", "No Me Digas Nada", "Ojos De Perdida", "Que Puedo Hacer Yo", "Otra Tarde", and "Sobre Un Vidrio Mojado".

✨✧ Leroy AndersonComplete Christmas Collection (Christmas Carols/Christmas Festival) ... CD
Decca/Real Gone, Late 50s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Two full albums of orchestral Holiday instrumentals from Leroy Anderson – the midcentury composer/conductor who has a knack for playful, creative combinations of sound! Both the records here have Anderson in maybe the straighter side of his spectrum – partly respectful to the needs of a Christmas Record – but the orchestrations make some nice magic out of a set of short tunes that mix the more spiritual songs of the season with a few secular numbers too – all handled with that kind of elevated style for the more sophisticated living rooms of the postwar years. Titles include "Patapan", "Pastores A Belen", "Wassail Song", "Angels In Our Fields", "Away In A Manger", "The Coventry Carol", and "March Of The Kings" – and both albums begin with a long "Christmas Festival" medley. CD also features mono and stereo versions of "Sleigh Ride" – a tune that was one of Anderson's biggest hits! CD

Hiromasa SuzukiPrimrose ... LP
Union/Le Tres Jazz Club (France), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
Warm and wonderful work from pianist Hiromasa Suzuki – a real leading light in the Japanese trio scene of the 70s! The album's got a really wonderful vibe throughout – modes initially informed by a bit of Bill Evans, and maybe some Tommy Flanagan too – recorded with warm tones and a nice sort of sparkle – yet never in a commercial way, just with that clear, clean sound that makes so many Japanese trio dates from this time so great. Suzuki takes off nicely on some tunes, but never goes too far outside – and a few others have a slightly straighter feel – showing his balanced emotion on the keys, as well as his strong compositional abilities, as all tunes here appear to be originals. The trio features Nobuyoshi Ino on bass and Steve Jackson on drums – the latter of whom is especially nice – and titles include "Hornet", "Primrose", "Dis-Charge", "Pincer Attack", "Early Summer", and "Knick Knacks". LP, Vinyl record album
