✨✧ MonksBlack Monk Time (180 gram pressing with bonus tracks) ... LP
Polydor/Light In The Attic, 1966. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99
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

✨✧ MonksHamburg Recordings 1967 ... CD
Third Man, 1967. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The last slice of work to be released from the incredible Monks – a group of American servicemen who rocked the German scene in the mid 60s – and have gone onto become the stuff of legend over the years! The group's Polydor recordings have been issued and reissued many times – but this shorter batch of tracks features five tunes recorded at the Top Ten Club in the summer of 1967 – evidently the last work that the group did together before breaking up – with a sound that's every bit as amazing as their famous album, if not more adventurous overall! The Monks' approach is very hard to peg – certainly elements of garage and psych, but with a madness that really makes these guys completely unique – maybe even more so here, as they weren't trying to please any execs at a record company. Titles include "I Need U Shatzi", "Yellow Grass", "Julia", "PO Box 3291", and "I'm Watching You" CD

✨✧ MonksEarly Years 1964/1965 (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Light In The Attic, 1964/1965. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Primitive genius from the mighty Monks – their early demos for tracks that would eventually be ignited and explode on record for the uber-essential Black Monk Time LP and others – including the pre-Monks single by The 5 Torquays – issued properly in full for the first time ever by Light In The Attic! The thing that knocked us out about the Early Years compilation almost immediately is how sharp and clear the sound is – you never know the recording quality you'll get with the word "demo" in the title, but this stuff sounds great – secondly, the tracks demonstrate just how fierce these dudes were early on! The eerie organ, tribal thump of the drums, fuzzed out guitar and sneering vocals are in full glory here. This is a necessary set for longtime fans and would even serve a solid into to the uninitiated – and Light In The Attic has done an impeccable job with the booklet, photos and overall presentation. Pure greatness! Titles include "Monk Time", "Love Came Tumblin Down", "Boys Are Boys", "Space Age", "We Do Wie Du", "I Hate You", "Pretty Suzanne", "Higgle-Dy-Piggle-Dy", "Hushie Pushie", "Oh, How To Do Now" and more from the '65 demos, plus 2 tracks from the a single recorded by the pre-Monks moniker "The 5 Torquays" in '64: the earlier version "Boys Are Boys" plus "There She Walks".

✨✧ Blue NotesBlue Notes For Johnny ... LP
Ogun (UK), 1987. Near Mint- ... $39.99
A beautiful record, although with a strong undercurrent of sadness! In what was becoming an unfortunate tradition in their later years, the remaining members of the legendary South African jazz group The Blue Notes join together to mourn the passing of one of their original bandmembers – the great bassist Johnny Dyani, a player whose sound had a key influence on both African and European jazz scenes of the 60s, 70s, and 80s. The group for this session is reduced to Chris McGregor on piano, Louis Moholo on bass, and Dudu Pukwana on alto and soprano saxes – working together in a beautiful session of tunes that hearken back to the rhythms of the group's roots – while still allowing some of the freer interplay that they discovered in later years. McGregor's piano is especially nice – tinged with sadness and appropriate blue notes – providing a nice undercurrent to the solo work of Pukwana. Titles include "Funk Dem Dudu", "Eyomzi", "Blues For Nick", and "Monks & Mbizo". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousNext Stop Soweto Vol 2 – Soul, Funk, & Organ Grooves From The Townships 1969 to 1976 ... CD
Strut (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The next set in the stellar Next Stop Soweto series from Strut Records – highlighting rare South African sounds – this one infused with the western party music influences of funk, soul and organ drenched grooves of all kinds!
