Animated EggAnimated Egg (180 gram orange vinyl pressing) ... LP
Somerset/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.99
Freaky fuzzy guitars from the great Jerry Cole – working here under the name of The Animated Egg – not a real group, but a one-off studio project – yet one that is filled with plenty of great guitar, and some surprising rock funk grooves! The music is much trippier than Jerry's famous surf work – more fuzz on the amps, and a romping sort of rhythm that often takes these tunes right into Cherrystones funky rock territory, which is always treat for ears like ours – and the music veers between hard 60s instrumentals and modder Now Sound territory – thanks to some burning organ alongside the tight guitar and drums! Titles include "Sock It My Way", "Sippin & Trippin", "Dark", "Down Down & Gone", "Tomorrow", "Sur Listic", "I Said She Said Ah Cid", and "A Love Built On Sand". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limite numbered pressing of 750 copies!)

George Baker SelectionLittle Green Bag (180 gram translucent green vinyl) (2020 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
A sweet bit of soulful rock from the end of the 60s – part pop psychedelia, part small combo grooving, with some jaunty instrumentation and nice use of organ. "Little Green Bag" is a bona-fide oldies classic – and there's plenty of other nice tracks on the album with a similar feel. Titles include "Fly", "Road Of Peace", "Winter Time", "The Prisoner", and "Goodbye". LP, Vinyl record album
(Individually numberfed limited edition of 1000 – on heavyweight "little green bag" colored vinyl!)

Brother Dan All StarsLet's Catch The Beat (180 gram orange vinyl pressing) ... LP
Trojan/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
A classic album from the late 60s run of Trojan producer Dandy – working here under the guise of Brother Dan All-Stars – with a lineup that features some secret help from the rest of the Trojan scene! The groove is mostly rocksteady, with the strongly soulful current that Dandy brought to his own records too – and there's a few points in which the rhythms actually crackle with a slight current of funk – in a way that shows the Transatlantic appeal of the work that Dan was doing at the time! Titles include "The Bunk", "Freedom", "Dream", "Lee's Farewell", "One More Dance", "Mello Music", "Life Can Be Beautiful", "Everybody Feel Good", and "Since I Met You Baby". LP, Vinyl record album

Chosen FewEverybody Plays The Fool (180 gram orange vinyl pressing) ... LP
Trojan/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99
Fantastic stuff – and a record that's as much an early 70s reggae set as it is a strong bit of east coast soul – Kingston rhythms mixed with fantastic harmonies that maybe echo more of the East Coast group soul modes than some of the earlier Jamaican groups of the 60s! The choice of material also echoes that quality too – as The Chosen Few take on older soul classics, remade for a reggae market – mixed with a few original tracks of their own. Titles include "My Thing", "Reggae Stuff", "I Second That Emotion", "Make Way For The Young Folks", "La La At The End", and "Tears Of A Clown". LP, Vinyl record album

Cibo MattoViva La Woman (180 gram transparent red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Warner/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1996. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99 30.99
A much-loved classic from the 90s – served up by a duo of Japanese-American women who have a wonderfully weird outlook on their music! Most of the tunes here are named after food, and that's the main theme of the record too – carried off in these tunes that are spare and playful – often with lyrics that are sing-song, but with a lot more charm than you might expect! Instrumentation and production are from that moment when the indie scene was discovering beats and influences from hip hop – but again, that aspect is nicely soft-pedaled here, so that it never gets in the way of the charm of the tunes. Titles include "Know Your Chicken", "Birthday Cake", "Artichoke", "White Pepper Ice Cream", "Apple", "Sugar Water", and "Beef Jerky". LP, Vinyl record album

Dave & Ansell CollinsDouble Barrel (180 gram orange vinyl pressing) ... LP
Trojan/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99 26.98
Fantastic work from the team of Dave Baker and Ansel Collins – one a soulful singer from the Jamaican rocksteady scene, the other a hip keyboardist whose organ lines really make the album shimmer! The pair scored a huge international hit with this album – and the whole thing was a key crossover record in the years before Island Records and some of the bigger reggae artists to come! There's a raw, earthy vibe to the whole thing – and a heck of a groove too – and titles include "Double Barrel", "Wild Bunch", "Monkey Spanner Version", "Secret Weapon", "Impossible Mission", and "Ten To One".

Demon FuzzAfreaka! (180 gram orange vinyl pressing) ... LP
Janus/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
Messed-up funky jazz from an obscure early 70s UK group – and an album that really lives up to its trippy cover! The tracks are all long and stretched out – with lots of organ, sax, and spaced out drums – and the overall style is a mix of dub-heavy funk, Afro jazz, and a bit of jazz rock jamming! There's a bit of vocals on the album, but overall most of the set is instrumental – in a really right on and progressive style that we totally love. This is the kind of record that always got passed by in the 80s when everyone was looking for hard James Brown grooves, but which is very much in fashion now with the blunted funky crowd. Cuts include "Hymn To Mother Earth", "Another Country", "Disillusioned Man", and "Mercy (Variation No. 1)". LP, Vinyl record album

John HoltLike A Bolt (180 gram orange vinyl pressing) ... LP
Trojan/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99 26.98
One of the tightest, deepest albums ever from Jamaican singer John Holt – even if it has a slightly strange history, due to repackagings and retitling over the years! Holt had been making music for over a decade by the time of this set – and while he still works with some of the bad-stepping rhythms of the rocksteady era, there's also a more righteous quality to the record overall – a balance between the personal presentation and a larger humanist agenda – with a sense of maturity that matches the sophistication of the growing wave of American male soul talents of the time. Titles include "I'm The One To Be Blamed", "I'll Be Lonely", "I Want You Closer", "Let's Build Our Dream", "Have You Ever Been To Heaven", and "Ali Baby". LP, Vinyl record album

I RoyGussie Presenting I Roy (180 gram orange vinyl pressing) ... LP
Trojan/Music On Vinyl (UK), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
The classic full length debut of I Roy on record – although by this point, his reputation on the Kingston scene had already been set! Heavyweight producer Gussie Clarke decided to make a move into the Dee Jay realm in the early 70s and recruited microphone fiend I Roy to chat up some of his fiercest rhythms, then pimps the man out in a choice pink suit for the cover shoot, adding up to an irresistible package! When the album was released, I Roy was already a top DJ – part of a whole new hip-stepping generation who could bring a special sort of spin to the music – dropping wisdom and wit with an effortless sense of style – over rhythms that bubble along in a fantastic way – equally effortless in their laidback groove! Titles include "Red Gold & Green", "Pusher Man", "Black Man Time", "Smile Like An Angel", "Peace", "Coxsone Affair", "Screwface", "First Cut Is The Deepest", "Tripe Girl", and "Cow Town Skank". LP, Vinyl record album

Ice TIceberg – Freedom Of Speech – Just Watch What You Say (180 gram red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Sire/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1989. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99 30.99
Ice T's third album, and a set that still has all the nicely biting style of his early best! The approach here is great – as political as the cover implies, but with a nice sense of wit, too – that quality that already made Ice stand so far apart from others who were getting mired down in their hardass stance – but without also ever sounding too flip about the subject matter. The balance is what soon brought him to Hollywood, but it's always got a lot more edge on record – served up here with superb production and beats from Afrika Islam. Titles include "You Played Yourself", "The Girl Tried To Kill Me", "Freedom Of Speech", "What Ya Wanna Do", "Hit The Deck", "Peel Their Caps Back", "Shut Up Be Happy", "Lethal Weapon", and "The Hunted Child".

Wessel Ilcken, Tony Vos, Rob Madna, & OthersJazz Behind The Dikes 2 (180 gram white vinyl pressing) ... LP
Philips/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1955. New Copy ... $26.99
A treasure trove of rare jazz work from the Dutch scene of the 50s – initially overlooked by many American listeners of the time, but fortunately well-documented by this series from Philips! The music here is a nice mix of different combos – all drawing influence from bop and some of the west coast modern modes, with a vibe that's a bit like some of the Swedish groups of the period – no surprise, as the Dutch scene was every bit as fully-formed as some of the jazz world farther north! Two tracks feature singer Rita Reys joining the combo of drummer Wessel Ilcken, who also play on their own too – with work from the great Toon Van Vliet on tenor, Rob Madna on piano, and Gerard Van Rooyen on trumpet. And the set also features a few tracks by other groups too – the septet of baritone saxophonist Herman Schoonderwalt, with Tony Vos on alto and Flip Van Glabbeek on tenor; the quartet of alto saxophonist Tony Vos, with Henk Vos on piano; the trio of pianist Rob Madna, with Wessel Ilcken on drums; and the quartet of pianist Frans Elsen, with Robby Pauwels on guitar and Cees See on drums.

Billy Jones & The StarsLove Is Gonna Rain On You (180 gram translucent yellow vinyl) (2020 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
A spectacular soul album from Holland – but one that's got a much more American groove than some other overseas records of its type! The cuts all feel as if they could have been lifted from indie sides of the east coast scene of the early 70s – and Billy shines beautifully both on the mellow ballads and uptempo numbers – the former of which have a sweet soul/harmony vibe, the latter of which take things into fast funk territory of the pre-disco years! The whole thing's great – a beautiful balance between funky groovers and laidback soul – and titles include "Funky Monkey Monkey", "Thank You", "Save All My Lovin", "Feelin Good", "All My Brothers Are Clean", "Love Is Gonna Rain On You", "Look Out Baby Here I Come", and "Message From A Black Man".

Ennio MorriconeCosa Avete Fatto A Solange? (180 gram yellow vinyl pressing) ... LP
Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99 31.99
A beautiful illustration of the balance of light and darkness in the best work of Ennio Morricone – and an obscure soundtrack that dances between both sides of the spectrum! The main theme is incredibly sweet – one of those lightly drifting Morricone numbers that features wordless vocals from Edda Dell'Orso – but other tunes then go much deeper into the depths – hitting odd tones, moody instrumental passages, and somber rhythms that are then surprisingly offset by lighter numbers that are peppered throughout the score. The instrumentation includes a number of unusual twists that are not typical of Morricone at the time – and titles include "Cadenze", "Aleatorio", "Cosa Avete Fatto A Solange", "Raccapriccio", "Una Tromba E La Sua Notte", "Fine Di Solange", and "Sottinitesi".

GDM/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1999. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99 30.99
A wonderfully lush score from Ennio Morricone – done for this end-of-century film with Tim Roth in the lead – and which features the surprising appearance of Roger Waters and Eddie Van Halen on the track "Lost Boys Calling"! Don't worry, the rest of the album is prime Morricone material – of that more orchestral style he often did for larger budget Hollywood films, but which still had all of his best ideas intact. Titles include "Danny's Blues", "Second Crisis", "Ships & Snow", "Legend Of The Pianist", "The Crave", "Playing Love", "Mozart Reincarnated", and "1900s Theme". LP, Vinyl record album

Ennio MorriconeThemes – Giallo (180 gram marbled vinyl pressing) ... LP
Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
A collection of classic horror soundtrack work from Ennio Morricone – mostly early 70s material that represent the maestro at the height of the early giallo genre! The tunes here are often a bit more obtuse, atonal, and abstract than some of Morricone's lighter grooves – and his work for the genre is arguably even more sophisticated and dark than the images on the screen – filled with complicated orchestrations, odd patterns of sound, and really striking instrumental moments. The tunes here aren't for the feint-of-heart – and they include some of Morricone's tensest recordings ever! The set features 16 tracks in all – from the soundtracks to Spasmo, Il Segreto, Il Gatto A Nove Code, Il Serpente, La Corta Notte Delle Bambole Di Vetro, Gli Occhi Freddi Della Paura, Cosa Avete Fatto A Solange, Senza Movente, and Le Foto Proibite.

Ennio MorriconeThemes – Passion (180 gram pink & purple vinyl pressing) ... LP
Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $34.99
Not the trashy kind of passion you might expect from the cover – but instead, one of the most trademark sides of legendary film composer Ennio Morricone – his talent for building a tune up slowly, almost out of nowhere, then letting it flow gently with a wonderful sense of space and sound! These cuts move between the bossa and jazz-inspired modes of his late 60s soundtracks, and that richer style that he would use to great international fame in the 80s – making the music here a great 70s bridge, with some wonderful tracks from a variety of Italian films of the time. The set features work from the films Il Giro Del Mondo, Cosa Avete Fatto A Solange, Le Due Sagioni Della Vita, Amanti D'Oltretomba, Cuore Di Mamma, I Figli Chiedono Perche, Per Le Antiche Scale, Maddalena, Mi Vedrai Tornare, and other lost classics – 21 tracks in all.

Bronze/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $26.99
A record with a stunning cover by the great Roger Dean – and a stunning sound to match – one of the few sets ever issued by Paladin, a group who are a bit more hard-rocking than the Yes-like cover image might imply – but who also let loose with some great prog touches as well! The blend is maybe perfect for the group's placement on the Bronze label – an imprint that always seemed to bring out a bit more bite in its music – and while there's some long keyboard and organ solos, those are also balanced with some really searing guitar parts that ramp things up nicely. Titles include "Give Me Your Hand", "Well We Might", "Good Lord", "Mix Your Mind With The Moonbeams", "Watching The World Pass By", and "Get On Together". LP, Vinyl record album

A legendary album from the Dutch scene of the 60s – served up by one of the grooviest, coolest combos to ever work behind the dikes! Q65 have this special blend of garage, blues, and psych elements – clearly founded in early beat group inspiration, but taken to all these cool territories here – with a nasty, gritty edge that comes as a real surprise – and which at times maybe links the group more to the mid 60s sound of Sunset Strip than their closer contemporaries in the UK! There's a huge amount of surprises here – including a funky remake of "Get Out Of My Life Woman", a 13 minute jam on the Willie Dixon tune "Bring It On Home", and nice versions of "I'm A Man" and "Mr Pitiful" – plus the originals "Sour Wine", "Middle Age Talk", "I Got Nightmares", and "The Life I Live".

Basta/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1950s/1960s. New Copy ... $48.99 52.98
Amazing! This is one of the coolest sets we've seen in years – and everything about it is fantastic, from the package right down to the triple-length set of music! The set features rare unreleased recordings from Raymond Scott's legendary Manhattan Research electronic music studios – originally set up in 1946, and home to some of Scott's landmark early work on non-acoustic music during the 50s and 60s. Far from being the sort of turgid, dark knob-twiddling that computer music later became in the academy, Scott's early experiments are filled with a sense of whimsy and joy – exported directly from his early cartoon-based work, and applied in a fantastic way to his evolving musical inventions! The LP edition comes in three separate sleeves, plus a great 8 page booklet of notes, in a brilliant graphic style that complements the package even further! Don't forget the music, though – because it's totally fantastic – and kind of reminds us of bits of Jon Appleton's Syntonic Menagerie, Pierre Henry's early Musique Concrete, and later punk-era DIY electronics. That doesn't even come close to pinning it down, though – and with 3 LPs worth of material, the scope of the work is amazing! LP, Vinyl record album

Decca/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $27.99 29.99
A sweet debut set from Solution – a Dutch group who work here in a seriously jazzy blend of keyboards and reeds – almost with a vibe that's like Brian Auger in his post-Trinity years, but sometimes a bit more freewheeling too! The group's got great instrumentation from Tom Barlage on flute, alto, and soprano sax – and Willem Ennes on piano, Fender Rhodes, and organ – both players who soar out beautifully together, and have a way of dancing around each others' instruments as they take off to the skies! Bass is from Peter Van Der Sande, who also sings a bit – although the album's mostly instrumental – and drums are by Hans Waterman. Tracks are nice and long – and include "Koan", "Preview", "Phases", "Trane Steps", and "Circus Circumstances". LP, Vinyl record album

EMI/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1983. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99 32.99
One of the most righteous albums ever recorded by Peter Tosh – as you might guess from the title and cover! Tosh could be great on other themes – but this set has him picking up even more politics than usual – maybe a bit late in the roots game, but able to find a way to bring the message to a much larger audience – almost as if he's taking the helm from the recently late Bob Marley, his former partner in The Wailers! Sly and Robbie are on board for rhythms, and production is in the best mainstream reggae mode of the time – on titles that include "Mama Africa", "Glasshouse", "Maga Dog", "Where You Gonna Run", "Peace Treaty", and a surprisingly strong version of "Johnny B Goode".

A mad assortment of 60s girl pop from the UK – one that features a huge amount of material pulled from the vaults of Pye Records! If you've always thought that Petula Clark and Sandie Shaw were all that was going on in the UK pop scene at the time, you'll really be blown away by the scope of material in this collection – as the package features a total of 32 tunes in all, most of which are by artists that were barely ever known on this side of the Atlantic! The song selection is great – and nearly all of it is in that high-stepping, tightly punctuated mode that we first came to love in the tunes of Petula Clark, but which are really beginning to discover in a huge amount of other singers!

Babe Ruth have this rhythmic impulse that's really amazing – a way of working bass, drums, and percussion together with qualities that go way past just prog rock noodling – and have this focus that really fits the lead vocals and guitar of Alan Shacklock, who also handled all the arrangements for this mighty debut too! Titles include their classic cut "The Mexican" – a famous sample cut from way back, with nice use of acoustic guitar and a Morricone riff too – plus versions of Zappa's "King Kong" and Jesse Winchester's "Black Dog" – and the originals "Wells Fargo", "The Runaways", and "Joker".

There's barely any "spaghetti" on the plate of this one – as the sound is often quite lean and very clean – a real change from some of the more dramatic, romantic styles that were being used in American westerns. Titles include "La Corrida", "La Vedova", "La Resa Dei Conti", "Dopo La Condanna", "Run Man Run", "Primo Deserta", and "Corri Uomo Corri". LP, Vinyl record album

The second amazing album from Placebo – a wicked mix of funky fusion styles, and a real standout on the European scene of the early 70s! The group's the brainchild of Marc Moulin – who wrote all tracks, and plays a wealth of great keyboards, in ways that almost make him the European equivalent of Herbie Hancock – especially in the way he can spaciously explore a groove! But there's other great elements to the music too – some tight funky rhythms, great horn parts, and some wicked guitar from fusion legend Philip Catherine – whose snakey lines bring a quality to the record that was in place on Placebo's first outing. Titles include "NW", "Plotseling", "Hop Hop", "Tanga", "Stomp", and "Dag Madam Merci". LP, Vinyl record album

Titles include a wonderfully wild remake of "Drive My Car" – plus the originals "The Prisoner", "Lady Power", "Secret", "Give Me Good Music", and "Old Pirate John". LP, Vinyl record album

That's Earth & Fire – not Earth Wind & Fire – a very cool Dutch group from the early 70s prog years – stepping out here in a sound that's filled with all sorts of very cool touches! The group's got a female lead singer, who soars above the blend of organ, vibes, mellotron, flute, and electronics – in addition to more familiar guitar, bass, and drums – and while some of the lyrics get heady, the set's never bogged down by them – especially on side two, which has a very cool side-long suite based around the title of the album! Titles include "Carnival Of The Animals". "Ebb Tide", "Storm And Thunder", "In The Mountains", and the side-long epic "Song Of The Marching Children". Also features the bonus tracks "Lost Forever", "Song Of The Marching Children (single version)", and "Invitation". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ennio MorriconeIl Pentito (180 gram silver & black vinyl pressing) ... LP
GDM/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1985. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A later score from Ennio Morricone – but an incredibly beautiful one too – penned for a mid 80s mafia film set in Sicily, but featuring some of his sweetest, most sensitive work of the time! There's a very bittersweet feel to most of the music here – a quality that's almost romantic at times, but touched with really blue notes too – as the tunes spin out in slow, thoughtful progressions that echo the darker choices and themes of the film. There's a few more upbeat tracks, and a few darker, atonal numbers – but overall most of the score is steeped in melancholy – with gentle strings and woodwinds that have plenty of trademark Morricone touches! Titles include "Il Pentito", "Messaggio", "Retata", "Momento Decisivo", "Sicilia", "Durante L'Omelia", "Confusi Ricordi", "Sicilia Dei Ricordi Lontani", and "Evento Finale". LP, Vinyl record album

Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the darkest, moodiest soundtracks we've ever heard from Ennio Morricone – even in comparison to some of his atonal horror work of the 70s! The vibe here is almost 20th Century avant chamber – a bit like work from Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova, but even more experimental – as odd bits of sound samples are filtered through these dark sonic textures, string parts, and electronics – all with a style that's very musique concrete overall! Tracks are much longer than usual for a soundtrack too – and the record has an experimental greatness that really stands apart from the film. Titles include "Disordini", "Ordini", "Ergastolo", and "Memento". LP, Vinyl record album

A really excellent collection of rocksteady work on Trojan Records – material that's much more expansive than some of the more hit-based sets of this type on the market – in a way that really draws a firm line between the roots of ska and the early days of reggae! There's a lot of tracks here that aren't easy to find otherwise, mixed with others from some of the key Jamaican singers of the moment – served up in two dozen tracks that include "Revival" by Leslie Butler & The Originals Orchestra, "Right On Time" by The Sensations, "She Said She Loves Me" by The Sealmates, "Can't See You" by Ken Boothe, "Reborn" by The Maytals, "Over Again" by Stranger & Gladdy, "Be Mine" by The Rulers, "One Scotch One Bourbon One Beer" by Alfred Brown, "Miss Anti Social" by Austin Fairchild & The Hippies, "Give Me That Love" by Nehmiah Reid, "The Shadow Of Your Smile" by Tommy McCook & The Supersonics, "You've Got Something" by Ewan & Jerry, and "So Nice Like Rice" by Charley Kelly.

A great collection of work from the late 60s years of Trojan Records – cuts that are a lot deeper and more interesting than you might guess from the rude boy in the title! These aren't watered down ska cuts for the later tourists, but ruff and ready gems that rose up from the Kingston scene, bridged the Atlantic, and set the tone for a whole new generation overseas – served up here in a well-chosen batch of tracks that mixes classics with lesser-known gems – and really shows the political power of the rude boy in song – very much a precursor to righteous themes of the roots reggae years. 24 cuts in all – and titles include "Rude Boy Confession" by Romeo & The Emotions, "Young Generation" by Desmond Dekker & The Aces, "Rudies Are The Greatest" by The Pioneers, "Stop The Violence" by The Valentines, "Hot Iron" by The Originators, "Dreader Than Dread" by Honeyboy Martin & The Voices, "Set Them Free" by Lee Perry & The Sensations, "Gunmen Coming To Town" by The Heptones, "Don't Trouble People" by Alton Ellis, and "No More Trouble" by Lloyd & Glen.

Dray and Skoob keep up the loco syllabic tempo and tongue tripping rhymes on this one – over the head nodding Solid Scheme beats that sound great to this day – but wisely put the focus on the rhyme craft rather than going overboard with the manic style.

An amazing record, and one that forever transformed the sound of opera in the US – the amazing summation of all the many musical ideas that Philip Glass had been cooking up since the 60s, done as a mindblowing stage presentation with Robert Wilson! Voices, organ, reeds, and piano come together in wonderful lines that go on and on, seemingly forever, in endless variations and rivulets of sound – as simple in structure as the leaner small combo minimalist work from Glass – but with a very different style in the fuller setting, with a sonic quality that still is as groundbreaking today as it was back in the 70s! 4LP set features all acts, plus the very cool "Knee Play" segments too!

An important early export from the Dutch jazz scene of the postwar years – a volume of Jazz Behind The Dikes, a series that focused on the best up-and-comers of the Netherlands scene! The album goes a bit farther than some of the piano trio sessions issued under the series, and includes some larger groups that show what strong horn players there were in the country at the time. Includes two quintet tracks from drummer Wessel Ilcken, with Toon Van Vliet on tenor, Dick Bezemer on trombone, and Gerard Van Rooyen on trumpet – plus two tracks from alto saxophonist Tony Voss and pianist Henk Vos, two more by the trio of pianist Rob Madna, two more by the trio of pianist Stido Alstrom, and one more with vocalist Rita Reys singing with the same quintet led by Wessel Ilcken.

An unusual late 70s soundtrack from Ennio Morricone – one that maybe has a bit more instrumentation tuned to the time, but still handled with all the great Morricone sense of space and timing! There's some keyboards and riffing guitar in the mix, of a variety that might be more at home in the hands of Stelvio Cipriani – but the maestro keeps things nicely focused, and also uses some larger orchestrations too – all with that moody, open style that we love so much – kind of an updating of his late 60s love themes, really coming across beautifully with different solo instruments on many tracks. Titles include "Move", "Ricordo Del Padre", "Sull'Amaca", "Tre Anni FA Una Sera", "Presentimento Primo", "Good News", and "La Ragazza Del Padre". LP, Vinyl record album

The classic debut of Whodini – a duo who were maybe seen by some as too pop back in the day, but whose music here still really stands the test of time way back to the old school! Jalil Hutchins and Ecstasy combine new beatcraft and catchy hooks at a level that maybe made them one of the first groups to really push hip hop into the mainstream – and there's some surprising studio talent on the set, which includes production from both Thomas Dolby and the Willesden Dodgers – plus work by Conny Plank at the legendary studios of Can in Germany! That mix of modes really comes through in the set – which is maybe one of the first records to inscribe that love of overseas sounds that Afrika Bambaataa was first bringing to the mix – on cuts that include their classic "The Haunted House Of Rock" – in both regular and vocoder versions – plus "Magic's Wand", "Nasty Lady", "Underground", "Rap Machine", "Yours For A Night", and "It's All In Mr Magic's Wand".

Freaky fuzzy guitars from the great Jerry Cole – working here under the name of The Animated Egg – not a real group, but a one-off studio project – yet one that is filled with plenty of great guitar, and some surprising rock funk grooves! The music is much trippier than Jerry's famous surf work – more fuzz on the amps, and a romping sort of rhythm that often takes these tunes right into Cherrystones funky rock territory, which is always treat for ears like ours – and the music veers between hard 60s instrumentals and modder Now Sound territory – thanks to some burning organ alongside the tight guitar and drums! Titles include "Sock It My Way", "Sippin & Trippin", "Dark", "Down Down & Gone", "Tomorrow", "Sur Listic", "I Said She Said Ah Cid", and "A Love Built On Sand". CD

The set was mixed at Fallout Shelter, and has this really heady brew of deep dubby currents with occasional roots-inspired vocals – although those often get pretty abstracted into the mix. Instrumentation includes work from Vin Gordon on trombone, Brinsley Dan on guitar, Tony Gad on bass, and Drummie Zeb on drums – which often get this great splashy sound in the production. Titles include "Dub Fire", "Flikaflame", "Truth", "Bammie Blow", "Tuffist", "Shining Dub", "Zion I", "Natural Aggression", and "Ghetto In The Sky". LP, Vinyl record album

Wally Badarou plays a range of spacey keyboards that include synclavier, mini moog, and prophet 5 – all over some beats that are a mix of electro and Carribean rhythms – in a style that's part jazzy, part new agey, and part 80s groove! The record's an unusual one, but it's pretty darn compelling – especially from a vantage point of the many years since it was recorded – because Badarou's clearly years ahead of his time, working here in a style that predates many changes to come in electronic music of the 21st century! Tracks include "Endless Race", "Jungle", "Rain", "Keys", "Mambo", and "Canyons". CD

Amazing solo work from ex-Zombie Colin Blunstone – his first album after parting ways with his former group – and one of our favorite albums of all time! Blunstone's vocals were already amazing in The Zombies – especially near the end – but this set takes things even further, by blending his sublime lyrics with spare arrangements that often just feature simple string passages and warm piano parts – subtle accompaniment that leaves Colin strongly in the lead! The songs are wonderful – penned to recall the changes and issues of the year after the parting of the group – with plenty of help from old buddies Rod Argent and Chris White too. There's never been another record like this again, and there never will be – one of the true treasures of the greatest generation of music! Titles include "Let Me Come Closer To You", "I Can't Live Without You", "Smokey Day", and "Say You Don't Mind" – plus a fantastic cover of "Misty Roses", and the more rocking "She Loves The Way They Love Her".

EMI/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), Early 70s. New Copy ... $12.99 13.99
Brilliant work from CCS – a jazz-rock big band led by UK blues rocker Alexis Korner, arranged by Brit easy maestro John Cameron, and produced to full strength by the legendary Mickie Most! The group had a sound that was really great – with lots of fuzzy guitars up front in the mix, supported by a larger, fuller blend of horns, funky bass, and drums. The sound was a more rock-based take on styles that had been showing up on late 60s soundtracks and 70s sound library albums – but which is served up here with a more straightforward punch that makes for plenty of guitar-based funky moments. A few tracks get a bit bluesier – in keeping with Korner's heritage – but the whole set grooves pretty darn nicely, and features 2 previously unreleased numbers! Titles include "Whole Lotta Love", "Boom Boom", "Salome", "Tap Turns On The Water", "The Band Played The Boogie", "Hang It On Me", "I Want You Back", "If I Never Sing Another Song", and "Primitive Love".

Billy Cobham's always got something funky going on in his music – and this 70s classic for Atlantic Records has the drummer at the height of his powers – really mixing together jazz, rock, and funk impulses – all without some of the overindulgence of his more jamming records of the time! There's still some great trippy sounds at times – some fierce future jazz passages that have Billy's drums really propelling keyboards and guitar – but overall the tracks are short and focused, with a nice nod back to the kind of energy that Cobham brought to his sessions with other artists. One exception is the great "Moody Modes" – a sweet long electric track that almost feels like George Duke on MPS – alongside other cuts that include "A Funky Kind Of Thing", "Some Skunk Funk", and "Light At The End Of The Tunnel".

A legendary run of music from the late, great Sam Cooke – almost all of his recordings for RCA Records, packaged here in one sweet little package! The scope of the set is wonderful – and almost something of a revelation, given that a number of these titles have never appeared on CD in the US before – making this collection a real discovery in soul music! Cooke first came out of the underground in the late 50s – and by the time he hit RCA, was really ready to take on new challenges – recording some key tracks that would help redefine the sound of soul for the 60s – and also working on some special album projects that expanded the range of work that he was handling – showing off some great sides of his talents. The set features the killer live album One Night Stand – recorded at the Harlem Square Club – plus the studio albums Cooke's Tour, Hits Of The 50s, Swing Low, My Kind Of Blues, Twistin The Night Away, Mr Soul, and Night Beat – all packaged in these cool little LP-styled sleeves!

Sony/Music On Vinyl (UK), 1970. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $38.99 39.99
Four sides of noisy, funky, stretched-out playing from Miles Davis – recorded at the Fillmore West, but with an intensity that matches some of Miles' crazy electric recordings from Japan during the early 70s! The music is a powerful blast of music that stretches out over the double-length set of the package – with a style that moves from heavy-duty avant playing, then back to more mellow grooving, then kicks it out nice and hard again – a heavy dose of rock mixed in with the fusion, but still plenty jazzy throughout. In all, the record is probably one of the most heavy-duty that the Miles electric group recorded in the 70s – and the lineup on the set features Steve Grossman on saxes, Chick Corea on electric piano, Jack DeJohnette on drums, and Airto on percussion. Tracks include "Spanish Key", "Directions", "Masqualero", "It's About That Time", "I Fall In Love Too Easily", "Bitches Brew", "Willie Nelson", and "Sanctuary". LP, Vinyl record album

A rare bit of Dutch jazz from the 60s – a hip quintet led by pianist Cees Slinger, and featuring a cooking lineup that's every bit as great as groups coming out of the British or French scenes at the time. Slinger was the pianist in the legendary Wessel Icken trio – and through his years in that group, he developed a solid swing that started stretching out into a more modal styled groove – and works here with Cees Smal on trumpet, Harry Verbecke on tenor, Jacques Schols on bass, and John Engels on drums – all top shelf players too! Many of the tracks on this set are a lot more adventurous than you might expect from the staid look of the group – and the album burns with the warmth and originality of some of the best Saba records of the late 60s, with slightly longer tracks that really stretch out, both in terms of rhythm and solo work. The writing is superb, and all titles are originals by European players – with tracks that include "Ruined Girl", "Lutuli", "Lining Up", "New Born", and "Monosyl". CD

Really beautiful work from the young Donovan – still yet to become the trippy popster that most folks know – but still pretty amazing here! The music definitely owes a lot to Bob Dylan – Donovan's playing harmonica and acoustic guitar, with just a bit of bass and drums behind him – but already, that vocal spirit that makes him so great is starting to shine – incredibly charming, especially on his original material – which shows a sense of playfulness that Dylan never would have touched!

Philip GlassDance Nos 1 to 5 (3LP set – 180 gram pressing) ... LP
CBS/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy 3LP ... $42.99 49.99
Seminal work from minimalist genius Philip Glass – a set that was issued during the same decade that saw his important opera box sets define his career – but one that also hearkens back to some of the leaner experimental modes of his early days! Part of the set was recorded in 1979, the rest closer to the mid 80s release of the record – and the music was originally conceived as a project with artist Sol LeWitt and choreographer Lucinda Childs – but stands very strongly on its own as a way of exploring the leaner modes of expression from Glass. At times, the approach is very similar to the Steve Reich sound of the early 70s – especially on "Dance No 2" and "Dance No 4" – both of which are solo organ pieces. The other three dance pieces have a fuller feel – still lots of organ (and we love Glass' preference for a Farfisa!) – mixed with sax and flute lines, and a bit of voice. Beautiful all the way through! LP, Vinyl record album

CBS/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1987. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
Don't let the 80s-styled cover, and the word "dance" put you off – as the set's filled with beautiful music from Philip Glass – two works done at a time when the composer was maybe at his greatest power, each for two difference dance-related projects! Side one features "In The Upper Room" – done for choreographer Twyla Tharp, and with full orchestrations that are wonderful – very much in the spirit of some of his soundtrack material for Koyaanisqatsi – but without some of the deeper tones and vocal chorus parts. At times, the piano is at the forefront – played by Michael Riesman – but strings and woodwinds are key, too, as the piece shifts through five different dances. "Glasspiece" was done for Jerome Robbins, and has a bit more keyboards at the start, like some of Glass' smaller group 70s work – but then brings in woodwinds and strings in a nice way, before moving back to more keyboards in the final third, which is a reworking of a passage from the opera Akhnaten.

Although Robert Shaw recorded some relatively mundane vocal records for RCA back in the postwar years, he's really at his best here – using the voices next to the bold brass, strings, and woodwinds with a sense of formation that often uses the lower end of the sonic spectrum in a great way – maybe a bit reminiscent of Glass' soundtrack recordings for Koyaanisqatsi and Powaqqatsi, with some obvious ties to his 80s opera work too.

This one album may well hold all the sense of subtle power and possibility that was about to flower in the Brit movement often known as "acid folk" – that reworking of older aesthetics with modern conceptions, and doing so mostly with their work on acoustic guitar – quite a feat, given the stripped-down instrumentation of the set! Bert sings a bit – in that incredible style of his – but the real attraction here is the guitar interplay, which is always fresh, never hokey, neither familiar American folk nor forced singer-songwriter backup material. Titles include a wonderful reworking of Charles Mingus' "Goodbye Pork Pie Hat" – plus "Red's Favourite", "Orlando", "Soho", "Piano Tune", "East Wind", "After The Dance", and "The Time Has Come". CD

A stunning set that's packed with some of our favorite music from the soundtrack genius Ennio Morricone – that special style he created in the late 60s, as a way of blending together influences from jazz, bossa nova, and other instrumental styles – hardly the sleepy lounge music of the American scene – as the format here is always full of touches that are subtle yet complex! The music is wonderful – warm, but never too sentimental – groovy, but never in a cheap or cloying way – and always presented with a focus on unusual instrumentation, inventive arrangements, and production modes that make the the familiar seem strange – even while still coming across with a warm and appealing vibe. The 2LP set is a beautiful package – and includes tracks from Verushka, La Donna Invisible, Gli Intoccabili, D'Amore Si Muor, Scusi FAccio L'Amore, L'Ailibi, Ruba Al Prossimo Tuo, Citta Violenta, and Come Impari Ad Amare Le Donne.

Ennio MorriconeThemes – Psycho (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $34.99
Dark genius from the legendary Ennio Morricone – one of the most important film composers of the 20th Century, and a master in just about any style! The work here represents a shift that Morricone made into darker modes as the 70s approached – sounds that stepped off from some of the moodier moments of his 60s western scores – especially those times when he might abstract the instrumentation, or use some elements borrowed from his experience in the Italian avant garde. These tracks are still tuneful, but also have a moody complexity that's breathtaking – and which would rewrite the rules for Hollywood soundtracks, as well as the Italian scene, for decades to come. The 2LP set features tracks from the films Il Segreto, Copkiller, Le Foto Proibite, Il Trio Infernale, I Sopravvissuti, La Corta Notte Delle Bambole, Citta Violent, Dimensioni Sonore, and Il Serpente – all wrapped up in a beautiful package!

Esther PhillipsWhat A Diff'rence A Day Makes ... CD
Kudu/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1975. New Copy ... $12.99 13.99
One of Esther Phillips' biggest comeback albums from the 70s – a classic set that takes her deeply soulful vocal approach, and sets it to some sweet jazz funk backings – served up by guitarist Joe Beck, who almost gets equal credit on the album cover! The rest of the lineup is equally great – with alto from David Sanborn, more horns from The Brecker Brothers, and even a bit of work from Steve Khan – all fusion superstars in their own right, but who never eclipse Esther's lead. Titles include a good version of Grover Washington's "Mr Magic" – with the same funky undercurrent as the original – plus the tracks "One Night Affair", "I Can Stand A Little Rain", "Hurtin House", "Turn Around Look At Me", and a semi-hit version of "What A Diff'rence A Day Makes". CD reissue also features the 45 version of "What A Diff'rence A Day Makes". CD

Virgin/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1987. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
A really lovely soundtrack – with some great minimalist pieces by Ryuichi Sakamoto, which rival some of his best work on the Merry Christmas Lawrence soundtrack! The David Byrne tracks are surprisingly great, too – especially the main theme – and the whole thing is a great mix of period-styled sounds and moments that echo some of the hippest currents of the 80s! Side one features all material from Sakamoto – including "First Coronation", "Open The Door", "Rain", and "The Last Emperor Theme" in different variations. Side two features more great tracks from David Byrne – including "Main Title Theme", "Bed", "Picking A Bride", and "Wind Rain & Water" – plus "Lunch" by Cong Su, "Red Guard" by The Red Guard Accordion Band, and "The Red Guard Dance" by The Girls Red Guard Dancers.

Fame/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), Early 70s. New Copy ... $12.99 13.99
Excellent early work from Candi Staton – recorded for Rick Hall's famous Fame studios in Muscle Shoals! The tracks here are quite different than some of Candi's later, more famous work – very much in the best deep soul tradition of singers like Ann Sexton, Betty Harris, or Ann Peebles – really drenched in emotion and feeling, and recorded with rootsy backings that really bring out the best in her vocals. And sure, lots of folks love Candi for her later disco work – but honestly, this is the stuff that really moves us, and we're really happy to finally have some of it on CD! Plus, this set is the first time most of this work has been legitimately reissued – a fact that makes us even happier – and the CD features 26 tracks in all, with titles that include "Love Chain", "The Best Thing You Ever Had", "Evidence", "I'm Gonna Hold On", "The Thanks I Get For Loving You", "Freedom Is Beyond The Door", "In The Ghetto", "Sure As Sin", "How Can I Put Out The Flame", "Too Hurt To Cry", "Do Your Duty", and "What Would Become Of Me".

Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99
A seminal pop psych classic from the UK scene – served up here by a group that seem to borrow a bit of the energy from the late 60s Bee Gees at their trippiest, but who also really have a way for turning out a tune that has a very groovy vibe! Part of the credit might go to producer John Schroeder – a Brit sound library giant in his own right, and clearly able to make the sound of the records guitars, organ, and vocals sound incredibly groovy. But it's also clear that the group have plenty of great energy of their own – as they kept on going strongly, even after this early breakout record. Titles include their seminal "Pictures Of Matchstick Men", plus "Ice In The Sun", "Elizabeth Dreams", "Sunny Cellophane Sky", "Technicolor Dreams", "Black Veils Of Melancholy", "When My Mind Is Not Live", and "Spicks & Specks". Groovy cover, too, with the band sitting on a pile of matchbooks! LP, Vinyl record album

It's the early 80s, but Toots Hibbert still has lots of older rocksteady modes in his music – maybe warmed up a bit by some of the wider reach that was allowed by the Island Records placement of albums like this! Yet despite any temptation to make things sound a bit more crossover, the approach is still nice and lean – a really laidback studio jam at Dynamic Studios, with Toots providing soulful vocals over mellow rhythms from a group that includes Winston Wright on organ and Mikey Chung on guitar. Titles include "Let's Get It Together", 'Chatty Chatty", "Just Like That", "Dilly Dally", "Israel Children" and "Journeyman". LP, Vinyl record album

A classic moment from Frederick "Toots" Hibbert – a set that's maybe his equivalent to some of the key Island Records albums of the 70s from Bob Marley & The Wailers! Like those, the production here is top-shelf – handled partly by Joe Boyd, who brings a very respectful vibe to the set – and perhaps even goes for more of the soulful currents in Toots' vocals than before – at least in ways that might cross over more to American and British audiences than in the early days. Hibbert really seems to take to the spirit of the moment, and rises up with these beautifully expressive passages – of the sort that he may never have hit this well again! Titles include "Everybody Needs Lovin", "Living In The Ghetto", "So Bad", "Never You Change", "Rastaman", "Premature", and "Reggae Got Soul". LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1979. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 19.99
Originally a Japanese-only session – and one of the best records ever by this legendary 70s jazz super-group – a real return to acoustic jazz roots, with a lineup that includes Herbie Hancock on piano, Wayne Shorter on tenor, Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Ron Carter on bass, and Tony Williams on drums! There's a lot of the sorts of energy that some of the players created when working with Miles Davis the decade before – but shaped with some of the soulfulness that Freddie Hubbard unleashed during his early CTI years – very welcome here, at a time when Hubbard was getting more electric touches on some of his albums. Herbie's great too – and the album ranks with his other great Japanese-only albums of the decade – really given a sense of creative freedom that didn't always happen with the more commercial drive that Columbia was pushing in the US. The whole thing's filled with lots of long modal numbers, strong soloing all around, and a top-shelf presentation of the material – on titles that include "Tear Drop", "Fragile", "One Of Another Kind", "Papa Oriente", "Domo", and "Pee Wee".

A mad assortment of 60s girl pop from the UK – one that features a huge amount of material pulled from the vaults of Pye Records! If you've always thought that Petula Clark and Sandie Shaw were all that was going on in the UK pop scene at the time, you'll really be blown away by the scope of material in this collection – as the package features a total of 30 tunes in all, most of which are by artists that were barely ever known on this side of the Atlantic! The song selection is great – and nearly all of it is in that high-stepping, tightly punctuated mode that we first came to love in the tunes of Petula Clark, but which are really beginning to discover in a huge amount of other singers!

One of the grooviest Dorothy Ashby albums of the 60s – a set that has her already-great jazz work on harp backed by Chicago soul arrangements from Richard Evans – all in a blend that's somewhere in the territory of the Soulful Strings, but even groovier! And as an added bonus, Odell Brown even plays a bit of Fender Rhodes on the record – which sounds especially great! Both Ashby and Evans are at the height of their powers here – mixing together bits of jazz, soul, and trippier elements in a sublime late 60s Cadet Records blend – one that's carried off perfectly on the original tunes "Truth Spoken Here", "Tornado", "Cause I Need It", and "Just Had To Tell Somebody" – but which also sounds great on some of the album's cool covers too! Other titles include Brazilian numbers "Reza" and "Canto De Ossanha" – both of which are transformed in Dorothy's hands – plus "This Girl's In Love", "By the Time I Get to Phoenix", and "Windmills of Your Mind"!

Fantastic! The lost link in the Chicago soul scene of the 60s was Baby Huey – and he was a pretty darn big link too, if you've ever seen him in pictures! Weighing in at about 300 pounds, Baby Huey was sort of a rockin' soul star who played clubs on both sides of the city, to audiences of all types – working in a party-styled blend of funk, rock, and soul that was one of the most powerful grooves going down in the Windy City at the time! Huey sadly passed away at a very young age, leaving only this full album as his legacy – a great batch of hard-hitting soul tracks that are among some of the funkiest work ever recorded for the legendary Curtom label! The set includes Huey's classic version of "Mighty, Mighty", a club favorite from the live shows – plus the excellent Curtis Mayfield tune "Hard Times", famous as an oft-used sample track! Other titles include "A Change Is Going To Come", "California Dreamin", "Running", and "Mama Get Yourself Together". LP, Vinyl record album

The record takes the funky style that Herbie was cutting with the Headhunters, and blends it with some more sophisticated scoring that's top in the 70s action and blacksploitation modes – perfect for the dark theme of the movie's story. There's loads of funky bits with strings gliding over the top, and some more open-ended numbers with the sort of odd instrumentation and jazzy riffing that you'd find in Herbie's wilder numbers from the time. Cuts include "Death Wish", "Paint Her Mouth", "Rich Country", "Striking Back", and "Last Stop" – and side two is the full "Suite Revenge". CD

The grooves are nice and tight, and keyboards are focused on the most soulful sort of riffs – not nearly as tripped out as in later years, and really doing a great job of sending home the funky rhythms – almost in a way that's sort of early CTI at the best points! Marc Moulin's genius is already firmly in place – and he handles all arrangements, plus plays Fender Rhodes, electric harpsichord, and even what sounds like a bit of moog! Titles include "Humpty Dumpty", "Aria", "Showbiz Suite", "Ball Of Eyes", "You Got Me Hummin", and "Inner City Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

Seminal sounds from Placebo – one of the hippest electric groups going on the European scene of the early 70s, thanks to some great keyboards and electronics from the legendary Marc Moulin! Placebo's sound here is a unique approach to funky jazz – one that certainly draws from the electric modes of the American scene, and without any of the jamming elements of other Euro fusion groups – but there's also a touch of rockish inflection at points too – especially in the way the rhythms have a tightly pulsating groove. There's none of the indulgence of prog, but there's definitely a lineage going on somewhere in the mix too – and in addition to Moulin's keyboards, the group also features great horns from Nick Fissette, Alex Socrier, and Richard Rousselet. Titles include "Bolkwush", "Temse", "Balek", "Phalene", "Re-Union", and "Only Nineteen". LP, Vinyl record album

Titles include a lot of great remakes of American soul cuts – like "I Wish It Would Rain", "My Woman's Love", "You'll Lose A Precious Love", "The Choking Kind", "I'm Gonna Make You Love Me", and "Everybody Needs Somebody To Love" – plus original tunes "Give Me Your Love", "I Try", and "Delicious".

A great record for a baby – if you want to either mess that baby up for the rest of his life, or turn him on forever to the sound of electronic music! Billed as "an infant's friend in sound" these Soothing Sounds albums were issued in the early 60's as an electronic aid to mothers with new babies – special space-age music that would help to calm and raise their kids. In reality, though, the albums are instead amazing bits of early electronic music, put together by the legendary Raymond Scott – known best to the world for his famous cartoon music decades before! Scott was an electronic music pioneer, and these albums were put together by him on his own contraptions, in conjunction with the Gesell Institute of Child Development – who were brought on board to give the whole thing a scientific pedigree. We can't say for sure how well the "science" of the music actually works – but the sound is amazing, and these records have become collectors classics in the world of analogue electronics!

There's a few nice southern soul moments – thanks to production at Broadway Studios, in Sheffield, Alabama – and titles include "God Ain't Blessing America", "When He Was No One", "I Wanna Lifetime Of Loving You", "I Wouldn't Leave Here To Go To Heaven", "Chewed UP Grass", and "The Mind Does The Dancing While The Body Pulls The Strings".

There's a vibe here that's unlike anything else – even any of Burke's heavy-hitting contemporaries on Atlantic Records – and the album's key proof that Solomon's easily one of the greatest soul singers who ever lived! His vocals have roots that go very deep, but the strength of his vocals also help bring a new focus to 60s soul as well – a raw power that so many others would try to emulate, yet maybe never hit as well as Burke. A number of cuts here are great originals penned by Solomon, and every number's a gem – with titles that include "Stupidity", "Words", "If You Need Me", "Home In Your Heart", "Tonight My Heart She Is Crying", "I Really Don't Want To Know", and "Send Me Some Loving".

A beautifully gentle album from vocalist Ann Burton – recorded with sublime accompaniment from the trio of pianist Louis Van Dyke, a fragile and spare talent on the keys – and a perfect match for Burton on the mood of the album! Ann's vocals really come across with the mature grace that's always made us love her so much – and overall, the session's got a strength that goes far beyond most of her indie albums from later years. Most tunes are extremely spare – with bass stepping out first behind Ann's vocals, as Louis' piano lines sneak in with just a few quiet lines that slowly grow as the tune progresses – all in a style that's neither a cliche of older torch, nor the too-adult mode of more pop jazz vocal albums of the time. Piet Noordjik plays alto sax on a few of the tunes on the set – and titles include "You've Changed", "The Good Life", "Go Away Little Boy", "It's Easy To Remember", "But Not For Me", "He Was Too Good To Me", and "Sunny".

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 "Sagittarius", 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! CD

The title track "Straight Life" has a style that's quite searing and righteous at points – almost some of Freddie's boldest playing on record from the time. It's followed by an excellent take on Weldon Irvine's "Mr Clean" – one that's rompingly funky while still as righteous as the work on side long title track – played with some great electric piano from Herbie and sweet guitar lines from Benson. The set closes with a mellow take on "Here's That Rainy Day", played in a way that reminds us of Hubbard's more lyrical style – but still with plenty of CTI 70s overtones. CD

A great little collection – one that's really heavy on the hard-hitting soul tracks that Etta James cut for Chess Records in the 60s, plus some nice bits from other years too! Etta's one of those singers that's almost a genre unto herself – like Aretha Franklin, a vocalist with tremendous power in the right setting – which she definitely finds here, in a mix of modes that move between deep soul and more sophisticated settings, but always in ways that allow the bluer currents in Etta's voice to come to the forefront. Sometimes she's a growling tiger, other points she hits a heartbreaking quality that's amazing – and the huge set features 36 tracks in all, with titles that include "In The Basement", "Spoonful", "The Blues Is My Business", "Feelin Uneasy", "Only Women Bleed", "Losers Weepers", "Security", "The Wallflower", "All I Could Do Was Cry", "At Last", "Tell Mama", "Pushover", "Damn Your Eyes", "Do Right Woman", "I Miss You", "Say It Isn't So", and "Born Under A Bad Sign".

✨✧ Lee Perry & The UpsettersReturn Of Django (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Trojan/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1969. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
An early moment of genius from the legendary Lee Perry – and a set that uses Django imagery from Italian westerns to serve up a "bad boy" version of Jamaican music for the late 60s! Even at this early point, the sounds are mindblowing – rocksteady brought through a really weird sort of filter – so that lots of familiar instruments are turned inside out, and used to create these incredibly far-out sounds – especially the keyboards, which get really weird tunings and timings – and the reed passages, which sometimes have surprisingly exotic touches. Production is a big part of this approach, yet is surprisingly understated too – especially in comparison to later Perry productions – and titles include "Cold Sweat", "Live Injection", "Ten To Twelve", "One Punch", "Touch Of Fire", "Night Doctor", and the classic "Man From MI5".

✨✧ Lee Scratch Perry & The UpsettersBattle Of Armagideon (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Trojan/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1986. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A really striking mid 80s effort from the legendary Lee Scratch Perry – done at a time when his name and reputation had risen strongly on the global scene – which also seems to come through in the music as well! There's a wider range of styles going on here than before – and Scratch is more upfront, less hidden behind his own production – feeling that sense of mission as a messenger for madness that he seemed to take up at the time – a quality that comes through both in his lyrics and vocals, and in the nicely mish-mashed production as well! The set is credited to The Upsetters, but not the classic lineup – more a cast of characters behind much of the classic Black Ark material, though in good command of Scratch's brand of funky reggae. Titles include "Introducing Myself", "Time Marches On", "The Joker", "All Things Are Possible", "Grooving", "Drum Song", "I Am A Madman", "Show Me That River", and "Sexy Lady".

✨✧ Philip GlassSatyagraha (3LP set – 180 gram pressing) ... LP
Columbia/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1985. New Copy 3LPs (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Amazing work from Philip Glass – his second great opera, and a long-overdue follow-up to Einstein On The Beach – a set of music that's every bit as great as that groundbreaking work, but maybe even with stronger, fuller execution overall! The piece looks at the early political years of Gandhi – the title is a term coined by him, as a reference to his philosophy of truth and love – with words by Constance DeJohng, and these amazing minimalist orchestrations by Glass – filled with the kind of long-spun lines you'd find in his instrumental work, but somehow made even more amazing with the presence of lyrics! Douglas Perry handles the role of Gandhi – and the performance is by the New York City Opera Orchestra and Chorus, directed by Christopher Keene. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ MadlibShades Of Blue – Madlib Invades Blue Note (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Blue Note/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 2003. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Madlib invades Blue Note! He gets free reign of the catalog for this mix of sampler genius and live band interpretations, too, as/with Ahmad Miller, Yesterdays New Quintet, Malcolm Catto, Medaphoar, and others from the Stones Throw camp. This one's truly a conceptual triumph, if there ever was such a thing – one of the greatest hip hop producers alive, given carte blanche with the source beats of the century! Madlib's Blue Note crates are heavily weighed in the mid 60s through mid 70s electric beats that often get the shaft in mainstream jazz round-ups, but floor the beathead world into overdrive. Re-interpretations, remixes, and revisions are spliced seamlessly with the source samples, creating a whole new world where hip hop and late model live funk not only co-exists with classic Blue Note jazz, but it actually draws a linear transition between the 2 genius art forms. Beautiful stuff – if the album isn't the most original idea to come along all of these years into the hip hop & jazz underground, it's certainly one of the most perfectly realized projects of its kind, ever! It's one for the time capsule – easily one of Madlib's masterpieces, and pure funky sample wizardry by any standard! Includes Monk Higgins' "Slim's Return" interpreted by Ahmad Miller and DJ Lord Such on cuts, "Donald Byrd's "Distant Land", "Ronnie Foster's "Mystic Bounce", Yesterday's New Quintet's adaptation of Wayne Shorter's "Footprints", Madlib Invazion's "Funky Blue Note", the Joe McDuphrey Experience take on Horace Silver's/Herbie Hancock's "Peace/Dolphin Dance" and lots more.

✨✧ MaytalsMonkey Man (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Trojan/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the greatest trio albums ever from the Jamaican scene – a classic set that kicked off the sound of reggae for the 70s, while still holding onto the rocksteady sound of the years before! The vocals of the Maytals are tied together tightly, but still have a rough edge that's quite different than American group soul at the time – partly because the energy of Toots Hibbert is hard to contain, as he leaps forward with a great sense of spirit that paves the way for later solo stars to emerge from Jamaican groups. Production is by Leslie Kong – who's got a great ear for the bottom end – and titles include the classics "Monkey Man", "Pressure Drop", and "Peeping Tom" – plus "Revival Reggae", "Give Peace A Chance", "Gold & Silver", "The Preacher", "Bla Bla Bla", "African Doctor", "Sun Moon & Star", "She's My Scorcher", and "I Shall Be Free".

✨✧ Pink FairiesNever Never Land (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Polydor/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The fantastic debut of the Pink Fairies – easily one of the shaggiest, headiest bands on the UK scene at the start of the 70s – and a group who rose from the ashes of the equally important Deviants! The record's an unusual mishmash of modes – a set that confidently swaggers between psych, hard rock, and maybe even a bit of proto-punk – very confident in its approach, and coolly compressed in the production, but never in the slick style that would dominate British rock more strongly in the mid 70s. The Fairies aren't afraid to let their freak flag fly, but they're also clearly moving past hippiedom too – on titles that include "War Girl", "Do It", "Say You Love Me", "Tack One Side Two", "Thor", "Uncle Harry's Last Freakout", and "The Dream Is Just Beginning".

✨✧ VariousKeeping The Faith Vols 1 & 2 – 28 Stompin Northern Soul Classics & 21 Modern Soul Classics ... CD
Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
An excellent collection of rare soul groovers – one of those UK packages that are put together as a memory of their own great Northern Soul scene, but which has equal appeal to any fan of rare and unusual American soul! The set list is great – and there's maybe a nicely wider range of styles here than on the kind of Northern Soul sets that follow in a stricter Detroit-inspired style – as there's echoes of funk, some key 70s numbers, and even a few British tracks that sit wonderfully next to the US songs. The set's divided up into two modes – CD1 features 28 60s Northern Soul tracks, and CD2 features 21 numbers from the 70s – titles that include "Bok To Bach" by Father's Angels, "You Baby" by Jackie Trent, "Pick Up My Toys & Go Home" by The Devonnes, "Baby You've Got Me" by The Sapphires, "When Love Slips Away" by Margo & The Marvettes, "That's What Mama Say" by Leonard Whiting, "Check It Baby" by Willie & The Mighty Magnificents, "Stop What You're Doing" by The Playthings, "Ain't No Soul Left In These Ol Shoes" by Kenny Bernard, "Ain't Nothin But A Houseparty" by The Show Stoppers, "Gonna Fix You Good" by Alan Bown Set, "The Real Thing" by Kim Davis, "Ton Of Dynamite" by Frankie Crocker, "Beautiful Summers Day" by Mother Freedom Band, "Dreaming A Dream" by Crown Heights Affair, "On The Real Side" by Larry Saunders, "Something Fishy Is Going On" by Universal Mind, "Forget That Girl" by Jeannie Napoli, "I Got The Need" by The Moments, "My Man Is On The Way" by Rhetta Young, "Beautiful Woman" by Derek Martin, "It Really Hurts Me Girl" by The Carstairs, "I Want To Give You My Everything" by Carl Douglas, "Country Girl" by Soul Train Gang, "Gee Baby" by The Festivals, "You're My One Weakness Girl" by Street People, "In The Bottle" by Brother To Brother, and "I Wanna Give You Tomorrow" by Benny Troy.

ReddingsAwakening ... LP
Believe In A Dream, 1980. Near Mint- ... $11.99
Bouncing bass, snapping rhythms, and plenty of full on groovers from the Reddings trio – a set that has their vocals tightly wrapped around rhythms that are heavy on the boogie and mainstream funk modes of the time! Bass is handled by Dexter Redding, and is pretty upfront in the mix on most numbers – guiding the groove, and cutting things up strongly – except on a few of the mellower ballads. Titles include "Come In Out The Rain", "It's Friday Night", "Remote Control", "Doin It", "I Want It", "The Awakening", and "Lady Be My Lovesong". LP, Vinyl record album

Warren Baker with Paul Tanner & Andre MonteroMusic For Heavenly Bodies ... LP
Omega/Modern Harmonic, 1958. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $23.99 24.99
There's two sorts of heavenly bodies on the cover – but the real charms of the record lie inside, as the set's overflowing with incredible early theremin recordings! The album features spacey orchestral settings arranged by Warren Baker, and conducted by Andre Montero – plus fantastic work on the "electro theremin" by Paul Tanner – a different variation on the incredible post-war electronic instrument! The "electro theremin" was Tanner's own creation, and it works on a cool sliding principle that creates a lot of weird spacey dipping, turning, and soaring effects. The album's packaged in a lovingly heavy cover, with a nude "heavenly body" floating in space amidst a sea of bright colors! Titles include "Misty Moon Blues", "Out Of This World", "Holiday On Saturn", "20th Century Venus", and "Up To Jupiter". LP, Vinyl record album

Richard BandTroll (180 gram yellow vinyl pressing) ... LP
WRWTFWW (Switzerland), 1986. New Copy Gatefold ... $32.99
Magically moody music from Richard Band – sounds that are maybe a bit less creepy than image on the cover, but which transform nicely as the set goes on! Many of these cuts are longish – almost like mini-suites of soundtrack themes – often with strings used in these nicely-stepping ways – familiar and dramatic at some points, but more offbeat at others – with the most amazing highlights being these weird vocal bits – which sound like more atmospheric musings from the folks who live in Whoville from the Grinch cartoon! Titles include "Cantos V", "Cantos Profanae", "Cantos IV", and "Cantos II". LP, Vinyl record album
Also available Troll ... CD 16.99
