✨✧ Noel EllisNoel Ellis ... CD
Summer/Light In The Attic, 1983. Used ... $14.99
Light In The Attic keep it rocking with another bad and bold installment in their reissue series highlighting the music of the West Indian-Candian diaspora! Noel Ellis is the son of Studio One crooner Alton Ellis, and he carries on the family tradition in fine, soulful style with this north of the border batch of mighty, mighty roots. The album's production is stark and spare, with a group that featured Jamaican heavies like Johnny Osbourne, Jackie Mittoo and Willi Williams alongside some tight locals, complementing Ellis' vocals perfectly on lengthy numbers that finish out with just the right kiss of dubby touches. 6 numbers in all, including "To Hail Salassie", "Stop Your Fighting", "Rocking Universally", "Marcus Garvey","Dance With Me", and "Memories".

Lee Hazlewood400 Miles From LA – 1955/1956 ... CD
Light In The Attic, Mid 50s. New Copy ... $15.99 18.99
Lee Hazlewood is looking a bit nervous on the cover – very different than the swaggering bravado of his mustachioed fame of the late 60s – which is quite fitting, given that these tracks were all recorded very early in his career! The collection presents the debut of a set of early demo recordings by Lee – recorded in Phoenix, at a time when his flame was just starting to flicker – but with a clear songwriting genius that already points the way towards the tremendous work he'd do on his own, and for other singers! Most numbers just feature Hazlewood on vocals and guitar, with occasional extra guitar from Al Casey – but Lee's also already starting to use echo to bring out the best quality of his songs, creating all these cool and moody little corners that make the music sound very different than regular demo recordings. Titles include "Five Thousand & One", "Cross Country Blues", "Peculiar Guy", "Buying On Time", "The Country Bus Tune", "The Old Man & His Guitar", and "Fort Worth". Also includes a full early draft of the album Trouble Is A Lonely Town – ten more songs that include "Run Boy Run", "Big Joe Slade", "Georgia Chain Gang", "Six Feet Of Chain", and "Long Black Train".

Lee Hazlewood's WoodchucksCruisin' for Surf Bunnies ... LP
Light In The Attic, 1964. New Copy ... $21.99 23.98
One of the rarest Lee Hazlewood projects of the 60s, and one of the most unique as well – a set of surf-themed instrumentals, but served up with a nice current of exotica too! Given that Lee first rose to fame in the late 50s, for his excellent production of Duane Eddy's guitar – the mix of modes here is a perfect advancement of his roots – taken into even cooler, even hipper territory – with that really wonderful sense of sound that always made some of Hazlewood's productions so amazing! Most songs have a guitar in the lead, but are performed with less of the super-tight modes of surf groups – as many of the numbers are leaner, and more spacious – and go for a great sense of the overall sound. Titles include "Movin", "Bangkok Cock Fight", "Crickets Of Karachi", "Torn Sarong", "Batman", "Baja (parts 1 & 2)", and "Angry Generation". LP, Vinyl record album

LewisL'Amour ... CD
Light In The Attic, 1983. Used Gatefold ... $8.99
A strangely beautiful rarity from the early 80s, by a singer-songwriter billed only as Lewis – a mystery man who looks like a shirtless soap opera actor – but delivers one of the coolest pieces of period LA esoterica we've heard in a long, long time! The sound is tough to describe, but it's somewhere between haunting acoustic folk and spare synth pop – with the gentlest of piano and acoustic guitar, smoothed out synth waves and fragile solo vocals – with a surprisingly genuine sense of emotion, but that comes as a surprise only after reading the notes and considering the scant biographical tidbits available. Whoever this guy is (or was?), it's a fascinating listen – falling in some strange musical realm where it makes sense to blend spacey synth backdrops with acoustic songcraft and unashamedly romantic lyricism. Includes "I Thought The World Of You", "My Whole Life", "Like To See You Again", "Things Just Happen That Way", "Summer's Moon", "Love Showered Me", "Romance For Two", "Even Rainbows Turn Blue" and more.

✨✧ MonksBlack Monk Time (180 gram pressing with bonus tracks) ... LP
Polydor/Light In The Attic, 1966. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $19.99
The one astounding studio album of proto punk/abrasive psych genius from the Monks – a true masterpiece – and a record that's been ripped off by myriad more famous groups in both the mainstream and underground rock landscape of the past 40 years! The group's status as discharged G.I.'s informs some of spewed vitriol, but beyond that there's little connection to any trends or scenes – the Monks are true originals in a world of imitators – and that adds a layer of excitement to an already mind blowing listen. The album's wild organ washes, primitive drums and guitar, and harsh, bizarre vocal rants prefigured everything from the Stooges, to Rocket From The Tombs, to the more predictable punk stuff that arrived 18 years later – yet it still grooves. Outrageous and incredible! "Monk Time", "Shut Up", "Boys Are Boys And Girls Are Choice", "Higgle-Dy-Piggle-Dy", "I Hate You", "We Do Wie Du", "Drunken Maria", "Blast Off!", "That's My Girl", "Cuckoo", "Love Can Tame The Wild", "He Went Down To The Sea" and more – the first 12 tracks are the original LP release – followed by later singles and a live track. Light In The Attic's reissue has better sound than we've ever heard for this material, and a great booklet of notes and photos. LP, Vinyl record album

Lee MosesHow Much Longer Must I Wait – Singles & Rarities 1965 to 1972 ... CD
Future Days/Light In The Attic, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $13.99 15.98
Fantastic work from Lee Moses – an underground funky soul singer who never saw great fame in the 70s, but who's hit legendary status in recent years – thanks to collectors and DJs around the world! Lee is best known for his album Time & Place, but he also cut a number of other excellent singles before and after that famous set – most of which are collected here, along with a few unissued tracks – all making the whole album a fantastic second chapter in the too-short Moses career in music! Much of this work has a very gritty vibe – southern soul, handled with funkier currents – often with production that's nice and raw around the edges, which makes these tracks feel way deeper and dirtier than anything that might have come from Memphis or Muscle Shoals. The set's a bit short on notes, so we're not sure of the details of all cuts – but we can say that the singles were originally issued on the Dynamo, Gates, Front Page, Musicor, and Lee John labels – with titles that include "Bad Girl (parts 1 & 2)", "You Are Too Much For The Human Heart", "I'm Sad About It", "How Much Longer", "My Adorable One", "Diana", "Day Tripper", "Reach Out I'll Be There", "I'm Sad About It", "If Loving You Is A Crime", "She's A Bad Girl", "Pouring Water On A Drowning Man", "What Do You Do", and "I Can't Take No Chances".

Jim SullivanIf The Evening Were Dawn ... LP
Light In The Attic, 1969. New Copy Gatefold ... $23.99 25.98
Never-heard music from the enigmatic Jim Sullivan – the singer/songwriter who disappeared in the New Mexico desert after giving the world his fantastic album UFO! The style here is a bit different than that one, and maybe even more to the heart of Jim's spirit – as the work was all recorded in 1969, with just vocals and guitar – in a way that lets the brilliance of Jim's songcraft come across even more strongly than before – but all without ever feeling like scratchy demo tapes, or half-finished ideas! Instead, the album stands as a much-needed addition to the tiny Sullivan catalog – and really has us wondering what else Jim would have given us, if the shadows of mystery hadn't taken him away. Titles include "Roll Back The Time", "Walls", "Sandman", "Jerome", "Close My Eyes", "What Is My Name", and "So Natural". LP, Vinyl record album

Jim SullivanJim Sullivan ... CD
Playboy/Light In The Attic, 1972. New Copy ... $13.99 15.99
A fantastic early 70s album from Jim Sullivan – one of the few that he ever gave us before departing the planet, and a set that was one of a handful of albums issued by the Playboy Records imprint! The sound is a lot more rootsy than anything you'd ever hear at Hugh Hefner's mansion, though – very faithful to the spirit of Jim's classic UFO album, but also with these added light arrangements that really open up the lyrics too – in a way that maybe seems to let Sullivan focus even more strongly on his own vocal interpretation of his words, all with a sound that makes the whole thing one of the overlooked singer/songwriter masterpieces of the time. Arrangements are by Jim Hughart, who also plays bass in the core combo – and the songs are Jim Sullivan material of the highest quality – with titles that include "Amos", "Tea Leaves", "Don't Let It Throw You", "Lonesome Picker", "Sandman", "I'll Be Here", and "Plain To See".

VariousCiao! Manhattan (colored vinyl) (2017 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Cinewax/Light In The Attic, 1973. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $11.99
The lovely and late Edie Sedgwick is the cover draw on the record and movie – but the music within is maybe an even more interesting blend of sounds, and very different than what you might expect to come from the famous star of Andy Warhol's Factory scene! Some of the music here is by Gino Piserchio – and is spare, electronic material – of the creepy style that you'd hear in underground films of the time, but sometimes almost given a Brian Eno sort of tunefulness too. Other tracks are vocal numbers, and have a rootsy rock vibe that seems much more west coast than New York – which makes a nice contrast. There's even a few spoken passages that feature Edie's voice from the film – which balances things out in a great way. Titles include "Angel Shock", "Driving Verdeccio", "Revolution Of Youth", and "Night Riders" by Gino Piserchio – plus "I Can't Make It Anymore" by Richie Havens, "Citizen Kane" by Skip Battin & Kim Fowley, "To Give All Your Love Away" by Richie Havens, "Malibu People" by John Phillips, "Justice" by Kim Milford, and "Shouldn't All The World Be Dancing" by Richie Havens.

Light In The Attic, 1960s/1970s/1980s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $29.99 31.99
A really special look at the sound of the Pacific Northwest – served up here on a host of rare recordings from legendary Seattle producer Kearney Barton – all pulled from never-issued tapes that were stored at his home for decades, and released here to the public for the first time ever! The music is a really great mix of modes – rare funk and soul, trippy psych, and some of the leaner, meaner cuts that first put the northwest scene on the map at the start of the 60s – music that spans a much wider spectrum than you might expect from a city like Seattle – a huge cultural cache that really reflects the wider musical version of Barton! The spirit's a fair bit like some of the best genre-crossing Numero compilations from years back – and the whole thing's overstuffed with rare nuggets we'd never have heard otherwise, backed up with plenty of notes on the music, and on Barton himself. Titles include "Happy" by Secret Dynamics, "Looking Through Eyes Of Glass" by Ann Wilson & The Daybreaks, "Sticky" by James Henry & The Olympics, "Occupation Soul" by Occupation Soul, "Wrong Age" by Muf, "High Flyer" by Magic Ferns, "All My Nights All My Days" by The Wailers, "Qui El Petit" by Wilkins, "Everybody Knows" by Sweet Rolle, "Hold To God's Unchanging Hand" by Beacon Hill First Baptist Choir, "Mmm Mmm Mmm" by Dave Lewis, and "Don't Ask Me" by Tiki & The Fabulous.

✨✧ Donnie & Joe EmersonDreamin Wild (blue vinyl pressing – with download) ... LP
Light In The Attic, 1979. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Fuzzy and genuinely well-crafted private press grooves from the Emerson brothers – with crazy good hooks, some surprisingly solid musicianship – and songs that range from straight-up catchy, though fuzz-drenched rock, to funk and soul! Donnie Emerson is the lead singer, guitarist and bass player, along with some synth – and on the best tunes, he's got a confident, laidback and warm style on vocals that truly doesn't feel the voice of a kid still in his teens – with brother Joe on drums and other friends on backing vocals here and there. Here's a record that profoundly transcends the private press novelty and the goofy jumpsuits they're rocking on the front cover! Includes "Good Time", "Give Me The Chance", "Baby", the instrumental groover "Feels Like The Sun", "Love Is", "Don't Go Lovin' Nobody Else", "Dream Full Of Dreams" and "My Heart".

✨✧ Spooner OldhamPot Luck ... LP
Light In The Attic, 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The only solo record by Memphis/Muscle Shoals session hero and songwriter Spooner Oldham! Spooner's organ and piano sessions and knack for soulful songwriting with partner Dan Penn will forever cement his legend in the southern soul AND rock canons, but he rarely sought a spotlight of his own. This rarity is really something special! The first half is a stylistically diverse snapshot of his songwriting side, with some lesser remembered tunes he wrote or co-wrote, sung with folksy charm. The back half is a sweet, largely instrumental medley version of some huge songs he originally played on for others. A low key gem! Includes "The Lord Loves An Rolling Stone", "Life's A Package Of Puzzles", "Julie Brown's Forest", "Easy Listening" a great instrumental medley of "When A Man Loves A Woman", "Cry Like A Baby", "Respect" and other soulful tunes and "Will The Circle Be Unbroken".

Light In The Attic, 1976. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An incredible document of the new wave of country sounds that bubbled up from the underground in the 70s – amazing new music that went far beyond the styles of Nashville, to encompass a big range of modes from Texas and other points south – penned and performed by musicians who'd have a huge influence for generations to come! This expanded set features music from the Heartworn Highways film – which provided a documentary of this new generation – and the songs are recorded in just the right sort of stripped-down, personal style to make the right qualities shine through instantly. The set still blows away just about any insurgent country sounds from later years – and titles include "That Old Time Feeling" by Guy Clark, "I Still Sing The Old Songs" by David Allen Coe, "Bluebird Wine" by Rodney Crowell, "Alabama Highway" by Steve Young, "Waiting Round To Die" by Townes Van Zandt, "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" by Steve Young, "Darlin Commit Me" by Steve Earle, "The Black Label Blues" by Gamble Rogers, "Pancho & Lefty" by Townes Van Zandt, and "One For The One" by John Hiatt.

Light In The Attic, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Warm, soulful sounds from a crucial time in the Japanese music scene – a 70s moment when the nation was finding a special groove of its own – but one that also drew heavily from American soul and jazz as well! It's no secret that the Japanese have always had a great love of American sounds – but by the mid 70s, that longtime love had also turned into some great homegrown sounds of their own – as Japan developed a number of its own strong soul singers, who were often backed by the ever-growing array of great jazz musicians, particularly those of the fusion side of the spectrum. Plus, there also seemed to be a lot more criss-crossing between Tokyo and US studios at the time – particularly those on the west coast – which resulted in a special blend of sounds that had all the class and cool of the Japanese urban scene, but also some of the sunniness of the west coast too. That special mix of music is perfectly summed up here – in a collection that offers up plenty of cuts that were never issued outside of Japan back in the day – with vocals both in English and Japanese, and plenty of grooves that are perfect for any fan of fusion-styled R&B. Titles include the classic "LA Nights" by Yasuko Agawa – plus "Say Goodbye" by Hiroshi Sato, "I Say Who" by Tomoko Soryo, "Sports Men" by Haruomi Hosoni, "Midnight Driver" by Minako Yoshida, "Machibouke" by Tazumi Toyoshima, "Exotic Yokogao" by Hitomi Tohyama, "Lady Pink Panther" by Shigeru Suzuki, "Drip Dry Eyes" by Yukihiro Takahashi, and "Bamboo Vendor" by Masayoshi Takanaka.

A wonderful snapshot of the late 60s/early 70s underground rock scene in Vancouver! The original album was put together as a benefit for the Cool Aid House – a shelter for homeless youth in Vancouver, and no doubt a haven for hippie culture at the time. The album was and is a vital document of the scene – touching on the freedom-seeking vibe of the time in the lyricism, but free of hippie rock cliche –it's great stuff!

✨✧ SharpshootersTwice As Nice ... CD
Light In The Attic, 2003. Used ... Out Of Stock
New work from the Sharpshooters – the best record we've ever heard from this Seattle-based duo! These guys have grown tremendously since the last time we heard from them – really stretching out their range of influences and styles, in a way that makes this album a delightful blend of beats, riffs, samples, and skits – leaping from record to record with an amazing array of sounds, as surprising at each turn as it is funky! A few tracks have vocals, but the best bits are really the instrumental ones, including the nice little interlude bits. Titles include "Love Walked Past", "All That Glitters", "The Sound Of Soul", "Japanese Mathematics", "The Young & The Restless", "Give It Up", "Toot My Own Horn", "Never Gonna", and "Pommes Frites".

✨✧ Karen DaltonIn My Own Time ... LP
Paramount/Just Sunshine, 1971. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Enigmatic folk rock and soulful bluesy vocals from Karen Dalton – her legendary lost 1971 album that's credited with inspiring some the most idiosyncratic work by folk rock superstars and contemporary freak folk heroes alike! Karen was a fixture on the 60s NY folk scene – Dylan even gives her props in his Chronicles Vol 1 memoirs – but she rarely recorded. Her voice carries a huge Billie Holiday influence – but the delivery is wholly unique in her earthy folk phrasing, a real dip back into Harry Smith territory. Her guitar and banjo picking is strong, too! In My Own Time was recorded for Paramount at the end of 1970 and beginning of '71, with really rich and surprisingly soulful backing on an interesting selection of material written or popularized by Dylan & The Band, George Jones, Paul Butterfield, and even a folksy soul take on "When A Man Loves A Woman". Light In The Attic shines a huge light for this reverential reissue – pristinely remastered with notes by Lenny Kaye, Nick Cave and Devendra Banhart. Other tracks include "Something On Your Mind", "In My Own Dream", the traditional "Katie Cruel", "One Night Of Love" and "Are You Leaving For The Country". LP, Vinyl record album
(NOTE – Vinyl appears slightly heated but plays just fine. Cover has split seams and a cutout notch.)

Serge GainsbourgHistoire De Melody Nelson ... LP
Philips (France), 1971. Sealed Gatefold ... $29.99
Fantastic stuff – and a record that may well be the greatest ever from the mighty Serge Gainsbourg – high praise indeed, considering the greatness of Gainsbourg's other music! The album is one long suite built around a spare, electric bass-driven theme – a slow funk riff that's been sampled countless times over the years, and which has gotten the album continuous play on both sides of the Atlantic for many many years. The mighty Jean-Claude Vannier handles the arrangements, and Serge mutters the lyrics over the top, in a raspy loud whisper – while the funky rhythms dart in and out of odd washes of sound, and unusual eerie sounds. There's a very strong soundtrack feel to the album, as waves of music envelop the lyrics – tripped out in funky beats that have become legendary over the years, thanks to some very famous samples! Titles include "En Melody", "Cargo Culte", "Ballade De Melody Nelson", "Valse De Melody", "Ah! Melody", and "L'Hotel Particulier". LP, Vinyl record album

Public Image Ltd.Public Image – First Issue ... LP
Virgin (UK), 1978. Near Mint- ... $14.99
The bracing debut of Public Image Itd! First Issue is seriously one of the most stunning post punk albums of its time – and we think it's light years ahead of the Sex Pistols in terms of boundless creativity and originality. Given that the Pistols disintegrated mere months before First Issue was issued, this album is all the more amazing for how hugely different Public Image is – different from Lydon's own earlier revolutionary punk act and different from pretty much everything else on the late 70s landscape. The dissonant, driving post punk guitars and sneering vocals are recognizable, sure, but the dubby textures and more angular touches are so far outside the box and so hugely influential that it's hard to fathom myriad underground rock acts existing without it. Vital! Titles include "Theme", "Religion", "Religion II", "Annalisa", "Public Image", "Low Life", "Attack" and "Fodderstompf". LP, Vinyl record album
(180 gram Light In The Attic pressing in a gatefold cover. Includes the poster, stickers, newspaper flyer, booklet, and download card.)

RodriguezCold Fact ... LP
Sussex, 1970. Near Mint- ... $49.99
One of a handful of enigmatic albums cut in the early 70s by Sixto Rodriguez – a Latin-tinged singer with a style that's a bit like that of Jose Feliciano, but trippier, and with more rock and folk touches! This set's probably his best one – thanks to arrangements and production by Dennis Coffey and Mike Theodore, both of whom give the album a stoned-out feel that sets it up nicely with other work on the Sussex label at the time. The album's got a lot of "deep" cuts with semi-political lyrics – including the classic "Sugar Man", plus "Inner City Blues" (not Marvin's version), "Like Janis", "This Is Not A Song It's An Outburst", and "Crucify Your Mind". Rodriguez was such a hip cat back in his day it took decades for the world to catch up and finally give him the acclaim he deserved. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Serge Gainsbourg & Jane BirkinJane Birkin – Serge Gainsbourg ... LP
Fontana, 1969. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A landmark collaboration between Serge Gainsbourg and actress Jane Birkin – his paramour at the time, and a much younger woman! This album is perhaps the archetypal Gainsbourg erotic effort – and it's filled with wonderful duets set to breathy, bouncy orchestrations – tunes that forged a whole new "adult" level in pop music – not just in France, but around the globe! The arrangements are amazing, and feature some of the weirdest instrumentation ever heard on a pop record – especially one that was as successful as this – and titles include the classic "69 Annee Erotique", plus"Jane B", "Elisa", "Orang Outan", "Les Sucettes", and "Manon". LP, Vinyl record album

Enzo Scoppa & Cicci SantucciMirage ... LP
New Tape/Sonor (Italy), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
Beautiful sounds from a duo who were one of the strongest instrumental forces on the Italian sound library scene – trumpeter Cicci Santucci and saxophonist Enzo Scoppa – both musicians with a strong legacy in jazz as well! Those jazz chops certainly come to light here – on a sweet set of instrumentals that really show the color of the duo's style – often upbeat and groovy, with wonderfully bright tones that come from the horns, and the really cool keyboards throughout the set – which include a fair bit of organ lines that feel like they were lifted from classic Italian soundtracks! When piano is used, it's often nice and echoey – and when flute comes into the mix, it's got a great compressed sound that's pretty unique too – and titles include "Guanabara", "Raggio Zero", "Mirelle", "Attica", "Hot Pants", "Tenerife", "Isabelle", "Ustica", and "Eleven". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited to 500 copies.)

Descendants Of Mike & PhoebeSpirit Speaks ... LP
Strata East, 1974. Very Good+ ... $289.99
One of the most unique albums on the Strata East label – and that's saying a heck of a lot, given the creative energies flowing through that legendary jazz outlet! Descendents Of Mike & Phoebe is a righteous little project put together by Spike Lee's father, Bill Lee, and his brothers and sisters (Cliff Lee, Grace Lee Mims, and Consuela Lee Moorhead) – working here in a group named after their slave ancestors, who are paid tribute in a beautifully flowing batch of tunes! Lee's round, warm bass tones are firmly at the head of the group on most numbers – recorded at a similar level to his excellent work with Clifford Jordan on Strata East during the same time – and other instrumentation includes piano from Consuela, flugelhorn from Cliff, and percussion from Sonny Brown and Billy Higgins – all used in a wonderfully evocative style that's even better than some of Lee's later soundtrack work. A few numbers feature vocals from Grace – singing wordlessly and with a really heavenly sort of quality – and together, the whole group have a undeniable sense of power and majesty, yet also one that's touched by a really personal sense of poetry too. Titles include a great version of Lee's "Coltrane", which was more famously recorded with Clifford Jordan – plus "Chick Chick", "Attica", "Too Little, Too Late", "Boll Weevil", "Don't Be A Stranger", and "Well Done, Weldon". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has a lightly stained corner, split seams, and some aging.)
