Roxy MusicManifesto ... CD
EG/Reprise, 1979. Used ... $2.99
A brilliant little comeback album for Roxy Music – their first album in 4 years after Siren, and a well-done departure that takes off from older records without losing any of their greatness! In a way, the set's almost the group's Lodger – a similar effort to Bowie's record from the same time that reflects a move away from heavier styles of earlier years, but never loses the edge of the group's best work. Manifesto also reflects some of the lessons learned by Bryan Ferry on his solo records – a bit leaner and cleaner presentation of the songs – but the album itself is also strongly a group production effort, and certainly feels that way in its use of Phil Manzenera's great guitars and Andy Mackay's horn arrangements. Titles include "Ain't That So", "Stronger Through The Years", "Trash", "Manifesto", "Angel Eyes", "Spin Me Round", "Cry Cry Cry", and "My Little Girl". CD

✨✧ Lee MichaelsNice Day For Something ... CD
Columbia/Manifesto, 1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great Columbia Records set from the mighty Lee Michaels – still going strong after an amazing run of albums on A&M, but with a vibe that's maybe a bit more underground overall! Lee's still a hell of a songwriter, but he's also got an approach that's maybe slightly muted – almost as if he's done trying for charming stardom, but more than happy enough to revel in his own skills as a singer! There's a nicely relaxed vibe to the record, and clearly Columbia was more than happy to let Lee do his own thing, his own way – which he does beautifully on tunes that include "So Hard", "Olson Arrives At Two Fifty Five", "Your Breath Is Bleeding", "Went Saw Mama", "Bell", and "The Other Day".

✨✧ Lee MichaelsTailface ... CD
Columbia/Manifesto, 1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Lee Michaels and the group stare out of the front cover here, almost with a look right out of the Seattle scene of the early 90s – which is maybe a bit fitting, as there's some grungier elements in the music than on some of Lee's previous records! Some of the songs are nicely earthy, with a previously-unheard edge on the vocals, piano, and even some of the guitar – all still set to convey that great sense of song that made Michaels' music for A&M so great, but really taken into new directions here! There's some surprising fuzz on the guitar on a few numbers – which really helps to kick the songs into gear – and titles include "Drink The Water", "Lovel Lisa", "Met A Toucan", "Politician", and "Garbage Gourmet".

La BatteriaLa Batteria (picture disc) (2020 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Penny (Italy), 2015. New Copy (reissue)... On June 20, 2020
A contemporary combo, but one who hit the style of classic sound library funk right on the money – with a killer approach that makes the album bristle like a vintage set all the way through! And trust us on this – these guys aren't "retro" or going for some sort of easy 60s modes – and instead, they really find the best way to turn out the sort of small combo funk that you'd hear from one of the small Italian sound library labels of the 70s – from the sharp instrumentation, right down to the production – and especially the best sense of economy and focus when turning out a groove. The music is heavy on keyboards – Hammond, Fender Rhodes, clavinet, and more – but also isn't just one of these copycat keyboard affairs, like the flurry of 80s styled work on the market. We're darn hard to please, and naturally suspicious of material like this – to take our word that when we say it's great, it's plenty darn great! Titles include "Espresso", "Dilemma", "Manifesto", "Vice Versa", "Chimera", "Scenario", "Formula", and "Vigilante". (Note: This item is not for sale online until after the opening of business on Sunday, June 21. It is in limited supply – and by nature of the Record Store Day rules it will be offered for sale first to customers who visit the Dusty Groove retail outlet in Chicago on Record Store Day.

VariousTropicalia – Ou Panis Et Circencis ... CD
Philips/Soul Jazz (UK), 1968. Used ... $24.99
A landmark album – not just in Brazilian music, but in all modern music in general! The set's a legendary manifesto for the Tropicalia movement in Brazil – and features key works by all the leading musical luminaries in the movement – including a few later stars who are heard here at their most edgey! The work is as groundbreaking today as it was at the end of the 60s – a brilliant testament to the power of artists to really break down boundaries in art and music, and find a way to mix the political with the popular at the same time. Titles include a fantastic version of Gal Costa and Caetano Veloso singing "Baby", the "Tres Caravelas" duet between Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil, Gil's great reading of "Bat Macumba" with Costa and Veloso, Nara Leao singing "Lindoneia", Os Mutantes performing "Panis Et Circenses", Gilberto on "Geleia Geral, Caetano doing "Coracao Materno, and Rita Lee, Gal Costa, and Caetano Veloso singing "Enquanto Seu Lobo Nao Vem".

✨✧ Celio BalonaBalona Espetacular ... CD
Bemol/Discobertas (Brazil), 1967. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Spectacular organ from Celio Balona – a Brazilian keyboardist from the 60s, but one who's maybe a bit different than some of his contemporaries – as the range of tones and other sonic elements is nicely mixed up to really fit the spirit of the tunes – which include early numbers by Caetano Veloso, Milton Nascimento, and Chico Buarque – and not just the usual pop instrumental songs you'd hear on other records like this! Most of the backing seems to be from a small combo with nicely snapping drums – and Balona's command of his instrument is great, and includes plenty of basslines from the bottom that really make the best tunes groove – in a lineup that includes "Vesti Azul", "Carolina", "Alegria Alegria", "Manifesto", "Travessia", "Maria Carnaval E Cinzas", and "Meu Grito".
