Ego MondoEnd Of A Daze ... CD
Ropeadope, 2019. New Copy ... $4.99 15.99
A tight blend of hip hop, funk, and soul – served up with a lot of dark currents around the edges, and in a criss-crossing style that reminds us of some of the hipper experiments of this type from the New York downtown scene in years back! There's distortion at the edge, and lots of moody elements in the middle – and the vocals are a mix of sung and spoken, often with a sense of intensity that recalls the urgency of late 80s/early 90s hip hop – but delivered with maybe more of a 21st Century funk sensibility. Titles include "Bloody Leaves", "Same Ole Kings", "Be A Star", "Stranger", "Rad Jams", and "Justice". CD

Chris CarterMondo Beat (clear vinyl pressing – with download) ... LP
Conspiracy International/Mute, 1985. New Copy (reissue)... $13.99 22.98
Seminal solo sounds from Chris Carter – best known for his work with Cosey Fanni Tutti, and as a core member of Throbbing Gristle – out here in slightly different territory on his own! Chris follows the spare electronics of his work with Cosey – and some of the tracks definitely have the "beat" promised in the title – but at a level that's nicely subtle, and never sacrifices the overall sonic complexity for the sake of a groove! The record's a very early variant of modes that would later be handled less-skillfully by the end of the decade by so many others – and sounds much better here in the hands of one of the originators – on titles that include "Mondo B", "Moonlight", "Real Life", "Noevil", "Nobadhairdo", and "Beyond Temptation". And be warned – the cover says "this record contains subliminals"! LP, Vinyl record album

Bruno Nicolai & Nino OlivieroIl Pelo Nel Mondo (Go Go Go World) (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1964. New Copy ... $11.99
Really groovy sounds from two great Italian film composers of the 60s – Bruno Nicolai and Nino Olivero – both working here to create a wide assortment of different instrumental modes! The film follows in the "Mondo" style of the period – kind of a fake documentary, with scenes from around the world – so there's plenty of global references in the music, while Nicolai and Olivero use electric guitar, organ, trumpet, woodwinds, and other elements that often recall some of the groovier sounds that Bruno would give us later in the 60s – served up on a number of short tracks that include "Dreaming Strings", "Harp In The Night", "Sting Of The Bee", "Music Ranger", and "Sexy Trumpet". CD features 19 more bonus tracks added to the original album – and total of 41 tunes in all! CD

VariousIl Mondo Dei Giovani Vol 1 ... LP
Studio Uno (Italy), Late 60s/Early 70s. Very Good+ 2LP ... $24.99
We know you're probably overstuffed with compilations of rare Italian grooves – but believe us, this one's a real standout! Not only does it have the kind of cool breezy material you'd expect from a comp like this, but it's also got a large number of tracks with a harder sound and heavy drums and guitars. Plus, the mix of artists pushes way past the usual gang that's been exported over the past few years – making the set nice and fresh. The cover art's got a bunch of Italian kids having a groovy time, which is what you're bound to do once you hear tracks like "Snap Dragon" by Montori-Chiti, "Carrefour" by Luiz Bacalov, "Happy Year" by Angel Pocho Gatti, "A Bocca Chiusa" by Piero Umiliani, "Ankara" by G&M De Angelis, "O Rugido Do Leao" by Piero Piccioni, and "Chase" by Pasquale Catiglione & Paolo Casa. There's 17 cuts in all, and the whole thing was compiled by Italian DJ Paolo Scotti. From the same folks who did Third Millenium, which was one of our faves from last year! LP, Vinyl record album

Boss A Tone (Italy), 1960s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Fantastic female grooves from the European scene of the 60s – an assortment of upbeat tracks done in styles that run from funky to freakbeat, jerking to jaunty, all with a great sort of mod-styled "shake" in the rhythms! Most of the work here is pop-oriented, but done with a fair bit of a groove – bottom styles borrowed from American soul, British mod, or the funkiest side of easy – topped off with vocals that are often sung in English, even though the singers include a fair bit of Italians and French as well! 20 tracks in all, and a really unique little package – a great introduction to this music, and a pre-sorting that will save you much time digging for these tracks on your own! Titles include "Take The Bitter With The Sweet" by Gigi, "Something To Give" by Nita Rossi, "Mais Pourquoi" by Pussy Cat, "Se Sapessi Mio Caro" by Valeria Mongardini, "Die Sconste Musik Die Est Gibt" by France Gall, "Hurting You" by Sandie Shaw, "Vestido Azul" by Shelly Y Nueva Generation, "In Nome Dell Amore" by Renata Pacini, "Hurry Hurry Choo Choo" by Sharon Tandy, "Doktor" by Peggy March, and "Action" by Ria Bartok.

Studio Uno (Italy), 1970s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A strange batch of grooves – but one with many nice moments! The source of the material is from Italian obscurities of the 70s, and from the kind of funky UK sound library music that's been showing up on compilations of tracks from labels like DeWolfe and KPM. The set's got a total of 18 cuts in all, and there's a nice mix of jazz and funk – similar to the first Il Mondo set, which we liked a lot! Titles include "Soul Punch" and "Mr. Buzz" by Pete Van Meren, "Free Fall" and "Long Hot Summer" by Ray Davies, "Crabapple Jam" by David Snell, "Oh Alfredo" by Jula De Palma, "Mediobrasil" by Piero Umiliani, "Volgio Restare Solo" by The Showmen, "High & Groovy" by Howard Blake, "Riccioni" by A Tommassi, "Mingus" by Quintetto RTV, and "Bloom" by Gianni Basso.

Easily one of the best in this excellent series – as the package combines familiar bossa numbers with rarer, more obscure ones – going for a sweet jazzy groove we totally love! Getting past the nudie cover, the set's got a level of quality that's totally high – some killer tunes that bristle with the best of Brazil in the 60s – a whopping 18 tracks that include "La Rana" by Agustin Pereyra Lucena, "What Is This Thing Called Love" by Carlos Piper, "Danielle" by Tamba Trio, "Amor De Nada" by Victor Assis Brasil, "Reza" by Luiz Carlos Vinhas, "Buzios" by Bossa Tres, "Samba Nago" by Dom Um Romao, "Samblues" by Som 3, "Jangal" by Dom Um Romao, and "Senzala (Coisa #8)" by Moacir Sanos – plus "I Remember April" by Johnny Guitar Watson, a surprising early 60s track with a bossa piano groove!

✨✧ VariousWild Wild World Of Mondo Movies Music ... CD
Big Beat (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A totally cool little compilation – kind of the sonic equivalent of a night at the drive-in movies! The package digs through some really raunchy exploitation rock of the 60s – gritty garage tracks, freaky exotic numbers, and other rough-edged gems – then mixes the music with rare horror film trailers and movie dialogue from the time – creating a combination that's totally out of this world! There's a creepy feel to the whole thing – an edgey sensibility that goes way beyond the novelty mode you might expect – and which really gets at the eerie undercurrent that lingered in the farther reaches of film production during these glory days. The collection was first cooked up two decades ago, but it's just as powerful today – a must for any fan of the Norton, Kicks, Svengoolie, or Roctober side of the spectrum! Titles include "Shook Out Of Shape" by Carol Kay & The Stone Tones, "You Is A Rat Pfink" by Ron Haydock & The Boppers, "Twist Fever" by Arch Hall & The Archers, "The Lemon Grove Kids" by Don Snyder & Pee Wee Flyn, "The Bird's The Word" by Rocky Roberts & The Airedales, "She Devils Instrumental" by R Lewis Band, and lots more great stuff – including trailers from Girls From SIN, Maniacs Are Loose, Thrill Killers, Strange Rampage, Hypnovista, and lots more weird movies!

✨✧ Riz Ortolani & Nino OlivieroMondo Cane ... LP
United Artists, Early 60s. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
One of the biggest-selling United Artists albums of the 60s – and one of its first big successes in the European soundtrack market! The score is for a strange documentary like film (the title means "World Gone To The Dogs"), and most of the tunes are dramatic – with a sweeping orchestral feel that has a few light instrumental moments. The big fame of this one is that it contains the theme that went onto become the 60s vocal standard "More" – but in this version, it's kind of submerged, and taken at a much slower pace. Titles include "Free Way", "Models In Blue", "Life Savers Girls", "The Last Flight", "Dog Heat", "Cargo Cult", and "Pergatory". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousCapital Revolution – Le Canzoni Che Hanno Cambiato Il Mondo ... CD
Universal (Italy), 1968. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A 50th anniversary celebration of Italy's Capital Radio in 1968 – a set that combines familiar English rock of the late 60s with a huge amount of Italian pop as well! The mix of modes is great – and the 2CD package goes a long way towards illustrating the way that non-Anglo countries on the European scene were served some of the hipper British and American music of the time, in ways that effortlessly blend with more homegrown efforts of the era. Given that American radio was almost completely closed to non-English language tunes, there's a generosity to the spirit here that's really great – and which goes to show why Anglo rock dominated the globe so much in the following decade. Yet here, the time is 1968, the place the Italian scene – illustrated in a set of 42 tracks by artists who include Equipe 84, Caterina Caselli, Gianno Morandi, The Byrds, Beach Boys, I Dik Dik, I Nomadi, The Who, Lucia Dall, Temptations, The Band, The Rokes, Lugi Tengo, I Camaleonti, Buffalo Springfield, Velvet Underground, Otis Redding, Francoise Hardi, Giorgio Gaber, Fabrizio De Andre, Canned Heat, New Trolls, The Monkees, Serge Gainsbourg, and Mina. Even includes "I Sole E Di Tutti" by Stevie Wonder – an Italian version of "A Place In The Sun"! CD

Mondo, 2020. New Copy ... $30.99 34.99
A great vintage-styled soundtrack from Scott Bomar – served up with just the right 70s vibe to fit the mood of Eddie Murphy's biopic on Rudy Ray Moore – with plenty of cinematic funky tunes in the mix, and a few nice scene-setting numbers too – plus vocal performances by Eddie Murphy, Craig Robinson, and Bobby Rush! The vocal tracks are in the minority – most of the set focuses on the instrumentals, which evoke blacksploitation styles, but never in a way that's too slavish – and one track even features a guest appearance by the legendary Fred Wesley. Titles include "Dolemite", "Ballad Of A Boy & Girl", "The Dunbar Hotel", "Liquor Store Wisemen", "Recording Comedy", "I'm Gonna Kill Dolemite", "Leaving", "Phone Call", and "New House Record/Walkin".

The tracks here feature contributions from other artists – including Lakeith Stanfield, who starred in the film, which was directed by Boots Riley of the Coup – plus Janell Monae, Tune-Yards, Killer Mike, and E-40 – with a range of sounds that moves between hip hop, underground soul, and other styles. Titles include "Hey Saturday Night", "Monsoon", "Level It Up", "Crawl Out The Water", "Oyahytt", "Anitra's Basement Tapes", and "Out & Over/Sticky Sunrise". LP, Vinyl record album

A beautiful set of hipster jazz vocals! This legendary album by Pittsburgh pianist Frank Cunimondo has always been a favorite for the jazz-dance groover "Feelin Good" – a cut which has an incredible drum and bass riff, and which has been sampled more than a few times over the past few years. But even above that track, the whole album's pretty darn great – and it features an excellent set of vocals by the lovely Lynn Marino, a very unique vocalist with a sweet style that's sort of like Blossom Dearie. The whole album's got a lovely light groove, with some heavy rolling piano lines from Frank, tight rhythm backing by the trio, and a great sweet sound from Lynn. A real treasure, and impossible to find on the original vinyl. Titles include "Beyond The Clouds", "Pretty Pretty", "What Are You Doing The Rest Of Your Life", "Love So Fine", "A House Is Not A Home", and the incredible "Feelin Good"! CD

Mondo/Music On Vinyl (UK), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 28.99
A fantastic album by one of the greatest funky keyboard players of the 70s! Frank Cunimondo may have never made it out of his native Pittsburgh during much of the decade, but albums like this will forever ensure that his name be known in the ranks of groovers everywhere! The album features Frank working with his regular trio – but unlike some of his other earlier sessions, this one's got a large amount of work on electric piano, which brings a whole new dimension to Frank's playing! The album kicks off with "Sagitarius", a 12 minute groover that runs along with electric piano solos at top pace, like some of Charles Earland's best work on the Leaving This Planet album. Next up is an 8 minute version of Herbie Hancock's "Chameleon", done with lots of funky work on the ARP, squeaking and grooving away in a style that would make Herbie proud! Side two begins with the 14 minute original "Slalom", a cool dark number that builds and builds, adding in more keyboards and getting slowly funkier, in kind of a Bob James mode. Last up is "Samba Nova", a short little bossa number that chills things down nicely. A great little album – and rare as hen's teeth! LP, Vinyl record album

The music here was created for insurance, appliance, liquor, tea, and other companies – all as a special way to hawk their wares and reach both their customers and their industrial partners – while serving up groovy musical numbers, done by a surprising array of top-shelf talents!

Polydor (Japan), Late 60s. Used ... $16.99
Groovy bossa from Sweden! The Gimmicks may not look that hip, but this is a great album of jazzed-up bossa grooves – done in a harmony style that recalls Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66, The Carnival, or some of the other great late 60s groups that were bringing a new vocal sound to the bossa. The arrangements have a very groovy feel to them – kind of in a Smallish Wonder mode – and the mixed male and female harmonies would make you feel a lot more like 1968 LA than Sweden, were it not for the fact that the language is changed on most of the tracks. Great stuff – with versions of "Roda", "The Look Of Love", "California My Way", "Going Out Of My Head", "Il Mio Mondo", and "Tim Dom Dom". CD

A real turning point for Monday Michiru – a set that has the Japanese singer moving into more complex rhythms than some of the straighter soul of her initial releases – really keeping things interesting as she stretches out lyrically too! Monday arranged and produced most of the record – although she also has help from some great guests, as was common in her early years – a lineup that includes DJ Krush, Mondo Grosso, Byron Wallen, and The Angel – all of whom add some creative energy to the project. There's a touch of drum and bass in the mix at times, but the key highlight is Monday's great sense of song and her fantastic vocals – soaring out as one of the few late 90s audiences who can take things over the top to a whole new audience. Cuts include "Reflexions", "You Make Me", "Island Of The Saints", "Method 2 The Madness", "Double Image", and "Scheme Of Things". CD

The tunes here are all upbeat and nicely grooving – very much that soulful Soul Source dancefloor vibe – and the package is a nice reminder that although Monday's been hitting some great mellow notes of late, she's also still one of the best club-oriented talents from the Japanese scene. A number of these tracks are from hard to find singles, and collaborators here include Da Lata, Jazztronik, Soul Source, Masters At Work, Joe Claussell, and Mondo Grosso.

Ennio MorriconeForza G (G-Force) ... CD
Cinevox (Italy), 1971. Used ... $24.99
A fantastic album from Italian soundtrack genius Ennio Morricone – done for a film titled G-Force, and which deals with jet pilots – but one that moves at a much slinkier pace overall! The tunes here bubble and brew in that early 70s Morricone warmth that we love so much – not the tension of his horror soundtracks, but instead the spacious sounds that he opened on some of his more majestic mondo scores of the time – delivered here with very light strings, floating woodwinds, isolated instrumentation, and slow-stepping piano lines that are really beautiful! The complete charm here is the way in which Morricone can make the music still sound so striking – very different than more common sleepy or romantic modes that are usually at this pace – and instead completely rapturous throughout. There's lots of warm and subtle passages on the album – gently swelling as the tracks move on, occasionally giving way to jazzier numbers, but always retaining the charm of mellow Morricone. Titles include a number of tunes called "Forza G" and "Sospesi Fra Le Nuvole" – with a total of 15 tracks in all! CD

Beautiful sounds from Riz Ortolani – a much more serious score than some of his work in the 60s, and a set that's almost got a Morricone-like majesty at times! Orchestrations are full, but have some nicely isolated instrumentation – which crafts these melodies that are simple, but powerful – quite seductive, with just a little – and a few tracks feature vocals from Claudio Baglioni. There's a lot less whimsy here than in Ortolani's 60s scores, and the overall sound is relatively mellow, with a slight spiritual bent created through use of chorus vocals on some numbers. Titles include "Fratello Sole Sorella Luna", "Lullaby", "Udienza Papale", "Francesco Va Solo Nel Mondo", and "Conversione Di Bernardo". LP, Vinyl record album

The son of the legendary Ebo Taylor serves up a great record of his own – a sweet blend of funky highlife and other 70s-styled grooves – set to short cuts with a nicely compact vibe, and a cool style of production that almost owes a bit to the style of Jamaican music! There's lots of basslines that move carefully along the bottom – never too dubby, but definitely giving the work a nicely stepping style – while offbeat organ, riffing guitar, and other elements move nicely through the mix alongside the very raw vocals of the younger Ebo! At times, we'd almost call the set a Ghanian take on the harder sound of Kingston in the early 70s – and titles include "Mondo Soul Funky", "Swinging Soul For Love", "You've Got Yours Greedy Man", "Every Woman Needs A Helper", "Gotta Take It Cool", "Systems To Love", and "Begging On Knees".

This sparkling set features 15 groovy tunes from some of Morricone's greatest soundtracks – and it's a swirling blend of bossa rhythms, light orchestral grooves, and haunting wordless vocal tracks that rank with some of his greatest work. There's some really great tracks on here that stand out as some of the few groovy ones on some of Morricone's more serious soundtracks – which makes the set even nicer, because you don't have to go out and buy the whole soundtrack if you're only interested in the groovy tune. Titles include "Nadine", "Barbalu", "Giocoso, Gicoso", "Verushka", "Belinda May", "Voce Seconda", "Immagini Del Tempo", "Come Maddelena", and "Del Mare". Great stuff, and an excellent replacement for the now out of print Mondo Morricone CDs! CD

✨✧ Piero PiccioniIl Dio Sotto La Pelle (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Sonor/Musica Per Immagini (Italy), 1974. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Beautiful grooves from the legendary Piero Piccioni – a set that's a great follow-up to some of his famous 60s work – touched with a few more sexy 70s touches than before, but in a way that's still extremely groovy! There's lots of electric piano lines on the set – almost a Stelvio Cipriani vibe at times – but these are mixed with fuller arrangements from Piero, with slinky woodwinds and some great rhythms that extrapolate styles from bossa nova, then go off in all these cool jazzy directions! The music was scored for a documentary of the "mondo" variety, but has a feel that's much more like the best love/sex soundtracks of the time – with titles that include "Katmandu", "Starless Sky", "Inventions", "It's Possible", "Nights To Come", "New Ways To Live", and "Love Will Find A Way". 2LP set features 12 bonus tracks – appearing here for the first time ever!

✨✧ VariousEsterno Notte Giorno D'Estate – Open Air Grooves, Daytime Breaks, Sunny & Scat Beats From The Italian Untapped Film Music Archives 1969 to 1978 (180 gram pressing – with bonus CD) ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sunny grooves with a fantastic sound – music that echoes some of our favorite Italian soundtracks of the 60s and 70s – but most of it previously unreleased! The work here is from undertapped sources of the period – not some of the oft-compiled songs from the Italian soundtrack/sound library reissue scene of the past decade or two – but instead lots of fresh tracks that really throw open the gates – with strong quality tracks that are awash in lots of groovy elements! Music is both acoustic and electric, often with a fair bit of jazz or bossa nova influences – and in contrast to some sound library collections that go for the darker side of the spectrum, these tracks are all as warm as you might guess from the title. Tracks include "Don Milani" by Alessandro Alessandroni, "Cugine Mie" by Nico Fidenco, "Gideon" by Alberto Baldan Bembo, "Camorra" by Manuel De Sica, "Pensiero D'Amore" by Mario Migliardi, "Gisposta A Tutto" by Gianni Marchetti, "Mondo Di Notte Oggi" by Gianni Oddi Gianni Dell'Orso, "Un Uomo Dalla Pelle Dura" by Carlo Pes, and "Verso La Droga" by Sandro Brugnolini.

✨✧ Paolo Achenza TrioOmbre ... CD
Schema (Italy), 1997. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the first albums ever on the now-legendary Schema Records label – a wicked batch of Fender Rhodes funk from keyboardist Paolo Achenza, with production and arrangements by Nicola Conte! Achenza's keyboard sound is right on the money – and back at the time of the album's release, he was one of the few cats to get a 70s groove like this so right – a true inspiration for countless others to follow! The band is bigger than on his debut work with his trio, but in a good way – with tight jazz funk horns that really show Conte's touch, as does the rock-solid classic production approach. Titles include "Ombre", "Samba Royale", "Mondo Cane", "Afro Impression", "Abstract", "Six", and "Semplicissimo". = CD

✨✧ Ebo Taylor Jr & Wuta WazutuGotta Take It Cool ... LP
Phonogram/Mr Bongo (UK), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The son of the legendary Ebo Taylor serves up a great record of his own – a sweet blend of funky highlife and other 70s-styled grooves – set to short cuts with a nicely compact vibe, and a cool style of production that almost owes a bit to the style of Jamaican music! There's lots of basslines that move carefully along the bottom – never too dubby, but definitely giving the work a nicely stepping style – while offbeat organ, riffing guitar, and other elements move nicely through the mix alongside the very raw vocals of the younger Ebo! At times, we'd almost call the set a Ghanian take on the harder sound of Kingston in the early 70s – and titles include "Mondo Soul Funky", "Swinging Soul For Love", "You've Got Yours Greedy Man", "Every Woman Needs A Helper", "Gotta Take It Cool", "Systems To Love", and "Begging On Knees".

Edmondo GiulianiIl Mare – Brani Per Sonorizzazioni (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Dischi Egede/Sonor (Italy), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
An instrumental set that's a tribute to the sea – but with a version of the ocean that's a lot moodier and more mysterious than the watery world of Sven Libaek! Edmondo Giuliani works in roughly similar territory here – often using flutes, light stringed instruments, vibes, and other woodwinds to evoke a watery depth – but he's not afraid to make some corners of the water seem a bit spookier and enigmatic, especially at a few points when he really surprises us with some noisier electronics! There's a strong sense of journey as the record progresses – light to darkness, and back again – on titles that include "Alghe", "Sonar Tre", "Scandaglio Zero", "Iridescenze", "Coralli", and "Marina".

Claude BollingBorsalino/Borsalino & Co (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Music Box (France), Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
Some of the most famous 70s soundtrack work of French jazz musician Claude Bolling – served up here in a double-length CD that's overflowing with bonus material too! First up is the original score for Borsalino – a really lovely little soundtrack for the French film that starred Alain Delon and Jean-Paul Belmondo as gangsters in the roaring 20s – set to backings by pianist Claude Bolling that's balanced nicely between the styles of his trad jazz work on record, and some of the warmer thematic modes of the French soundtrack theme at the time! Bolling's piano is always very heavy in the mix – sometimes played with the rhythmic quality of a boogie woogie musician, sometimes more spaciously soundtracked – and augmented by just the right touches of strings. The record was a big Euro hit in the 70s, and still holds up well – and this version features 36 tracks from the film – far more than the original album! Borsalino & Co is the sequel – and features a score that takes off nicely from the first – still echoes of Bolling's piano on many tracks, but also fuller, more dramatic orchestrations at times – and maybe a wider range of jazz instrumentation too. CD features 15 tracks from Borsalino & Co – plus 6 more bonus tracks that include vocal songs by Michele Bach and Le Gang, a big band version of the theme, and a "Borsalino Medley" too. CD

Ennio MorriconePeur Sur La Ville (2020 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Warner/We Want Sounds (France), 1975. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... On August 29, 2020
A great Morricone soundtrack for a Jean-Paul Belmondo thriller – a score that starts out spare and brooding, then builds nicely as things move on – with lots of cool bottom-end sounds that make the whole thing really move up from the depths! Some tunes echo the sweeter side of Morricone, while others are a bit more brooding – and instrumentation includes some of the same offbeat piano you'd hear in The Burglars, plus light guitar, weird-tuned horns, and other nice bits that are sometimes abstracted beyond recognition! Titles include "Consideration Sur Un Homicide", "Paris Secret", "Defense De Stationner" and "Mannequins". (Note: Record Store Day 2020 has been rescheduled to separate special release days of August 29, September 26 and October 24. The specific release date for each previously announced title is yet to be announced and subject to change. Titles are in limited supply – and will be offered for sale first to customers who visit the Dusty Groove retail outlet in Chicago on August 29, September 26 and October 24 only if it is safe and responsible to open the store, with Covid-19 shelter in place orders no longer in place.

VariousJazzistico – Hitop Is Different ... CD
Hitop/Rambling (Japan), 2005. Used ... $16.99
A great little Japanese-only collection of grooves from the Hitop label – one of the most exciting new European imprints of the past few years – and a label that's showing us that Spain has a heck of a lot to offer in the groove department! The Hitop sound is one that often bridges different eras of sound – fresh and new at one moment, yet steeped in older influences from jazz and Latin that come through wonderfully in the instrumentation of the tunes. The 12 tracks here really showcase the best sides of the label – and are brought together in a very handsome Rambling-designed package. Titles include "Cabezo De Barro" by Axel Kreiger, "Kasparov Deep Blues" by Javi P3Z Orchestra, "Ciclos" by Mai Mako, "El Chalao" by Nava, "The Way I Am" by Casbay 73, "Never Mind The Bolos" by Javi P3Z Orchestra, "Konga Kool" by Don Matias, "Cabo Verde Strut" by Casbah 73, "Palumbo" by Watch TV, and "Penso Ascoltando" by Mondomo.

✨✧ LiminanasCrystal Anis ... CD
HoZac, 2012. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Noirish French rock from The Liminanas – the second great record in a row from multi-instrumentalist Lionel and sultry singer/drummer Marie! Crystal Anis is their first album for Hozac – and one that equals, if not tops their underground instant classic debut for Trouble In Mind. Honestly, no other neo-classic garage psych revivalists anywhere in the world hits our sweet spot like The Liminanas. They carry a darkness-tinged, fuzzy guitar vibe inspired by early Velvets, the sometimes spoken, sometimes sung sexiness of Serge Gainsbourg and his chanteuses on the vocal tip, and an overall narcotic vibe that sinks in and doesn't let up. Yes, the influences are familiar, but what they do with them is uniquely hypnotic and wholly distinctive. The songs jump back and forth from French to English, but it's really all about the mood here. We can't recommend 'em highly enough! Titles Include "Salvation", "Longanisse", "AF3458", "Kinam", "Hospital Boogie", "Bad Lady Goes To Jail", "Crystal Anis", "Belmondo", "Betty And Johnny", "Une Ballade Pour Clive" and the closing instrumental "I'm Dead".

Universal (France), 1960s/1970s/1980s/1990s/2000s/Early 2010s. New Copy 18CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An amazing collection of music from one of the greatest soundtrack composers of all time – presented in a hefty book-styled package, and done with a very unique presentation of his work! The package is huge – a hardcover volume with 18 CDs and a 48 page book, all presenting a total of 400 tracks that really span the scope of the music of Ennio Morricone over the decade – presented on CDs that each have a different theme, to showcase a different side of the maestro's many creations! The first five CDs focus on Morricone's music for director Sergio Leone, and other CDs present work for directors Henri Verneuil, Roland Joffe, Quentin Tarantino, and Giuseppe Tornatore – plus a full set of music used in films that starred Jean-Paul Belmondo. There's also thematic CDs, too – "Genre Cinema", "Committed Cinema", "Mafia Thrillers", "History Of Italy", and "Faces Of Italian Cinema" – and the final CD features songs penned by Morricone, interpreted by a host of others – including Charles Aznavour, Chico Buarque, Traffic Quintet, Gerard Depardieu, Sting, and many more. A beautiful tribute to Morricone's 50 years of film music – with some unreleased music, rarities, photos, and more! CD
