Laurie AndersonBig Science ... LP
Warner, 1982. Near Mint- ... $14.99
One of the greatest albums to come from the New York underground of the early 80s – even if it was a relatively big "hit" on a major label! Laurie Anderson is in perfect form here – drawing on a strong tradition of avant garde performance, but without any of the indulgences that would mire down performance art in years to come. Instead, she's got a clean, clear style that's simply amazing – spoken passages that are poetic and pointed, but which also have a slight undercurrent of wit – a charming quality that never takes itself too seriously, even when the sounds and styles are somewhat dark. Instrumentation includes some great rhythm passages from David Van Tieghem, plus surprising performances from Rufus Harley on bagpipes and George Lewis on trombone. Titles include "From The Air", "Big Science", "O Superman", "Born Never Asked", "Walking & Falling", "Example #22", "Let X = X", and "It Tango". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes printed inner sleeve.)
Also available Big Science (red vinyl pressing) ... LP 19.99

David Grubbs & Susan HoweConcordance ... LP
Blue Chopsticks, 2021. New Copy ... $21.99 27.99
The fifth album in what's become a surprisingly strong legacy of collaboration – as musician David Grubbs works here alongside poet Susan Howe, providing piano accompaniment to her spoken words! If you know Howe's poetry at all, you'll know that it's unique in both content and structure – and her own reading of it is incredibly illuminating – maybe as striking a vocal performance as Laurie Anderson in a more serious mood, but with a vibe that's completely different, given the content. Grubbs' piano work is wonderful – spacious, and at a level that never seeks to challenge the words, but which illuminates it beautifully with all these little sparks of sound and warmth!

Jean Michel JarreZoolook ... LP
Dreyfus (France), 1984. Very Good- ... $4.99
World sounds meet 80s electronics – and the result is a groundbreaking batch of tracks from Jean-Michel Jarre, one that sounds a heck of a lot better today than we remember 20 years ago! Jarre's got a great sound here – dark, evocative, and with enough colonialist tension between the sources and their manipulation to create an unsettling feel overall. He's getting help from guests that include Laurie Anderson, Adrian Belew, Yogi Horton, and Marcus Miller – and titles include "Ethnicolor", "Diva", "Zoolook", "Blah Blah Cafe", and "Zoolookologie". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original French pressing, includes the printed inner sleeve.)

Space LadySpace Lady's Greatest Hits ... LP
Mississippi, Early 80s. New Copy ... $13.99 19.99
Really wonderful sounds from the enigmatic Space Lady – an artist who mostly performed on the streets of Boston and San Francisco in the 70s, but who also managed to make the handful of recordings featured in this set! The tunes are wonderfully spare, and surprisingly beautiful – often just Casio keyboards with bits of electronic processing, which is also extended to the vocals as well – which links the keys and lyrics in this spacey style that's completely sublime! At some level, Space Lady feels a bit like a street corner version of Laurie Anderson (who herself played many corners in the early years) – but there's also a more tuneful and naive approach to the music as well, which gives the whole thing a really unique approach. LP, Vinyl record album

VariousTen Commandments Of Rock & Roll – Commandment 4 – Show Affection/Come On & Love Me ... CD
Atomicat, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 12.99
A searing set of tracks that uphold the commandments of rock and roll – but which might also make you break some of the Lord's commandments as well! The tracks here are all raw, gritty, and grooving – the mix of early rockers, R&B, and other late 50s styles we love from these Atomicat collections – presented without much in the way of notes, but packing plenty in the socking set list of 30 tunes on the CD! Titles include "Laurie Anne" by Glen Glenn, "Don't Burn Me Up" by Ray Ellington, "Mama Doll" by Roy Teo, "Liza Jane" by Dale Hawkins, "Steppin Out" by The Flairs, "Yes I'm Gonna Love You" by Sonny Anderson, "Little Jewel" by Tommy Jim Beam & The Four Fifths, "Short Fat Ben" by Phil Barclay & The Sliders, "Pretty Baby What's Your Name" by The Mellows, "I Ain't Givin Up Nothin" by Priscilla Bowman, and "Come On & Love Me" by The Champions.

✨✧ Ilmiliekki QuartetLand Of Real Men (with bonus download) ... LP
WeJazz (Finland), 2019. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
The long-overdue return of a combo that had a huge impact on the sound of jazz on the Scandinavian scene over the past decade or two – given that its members have been involved in such important projects as Five Corners Quintet, Tuomo, Oddarang, and the Timo Lassy combo! Yet at the core, these four musicians are all very individual, and very different than some of that work – much more jazz-based, with a creative interplay between rhythm, tone, and texture – the last of which comes through especially strong in the trumpet work of Verneri Pohjola, which is completely sublime – almost with the power of a tenorist in some ways, but very tied to the structure of his instrument. Tuomo Prattala provides some really amazing textures on piano, alongside the bass of Antti Lotjonen and drums of Olavi Louhivuori – in modes that really keep things interesting throughout. The group begins with a great instrumental reading of Laurie Anderson's classic "O Superman", and other tracks include "Ravelogue", "Land Of Real Men", "Twisted Thistle", "Afterimage", and "Lonely Lonely".
