✨✧ VariousTake A Knife & Open My Heart – 13 Ancient Pieces Of Primitive Flamenco Music From The 1930s & On (clear vinyl pressing – with bonus CD) ... LP
Sound Miracle (Spain), Late 20s/1930s/1940s/1950s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great overview of early flamenco from the Spanish recording scene – tracks that begin before the Revolution, and move into the postwar years – but all with a spare sort of energy that shows just how timeless the style has always been! Most numbers just feature a singer, some clapping percussion, and very dynamic sounds on guitar – the latter of which is played by Nino Ricardo, Sarita Heredia, Miguel Borull, Paco Aguilera, and even a young Sabicas – on a well-selected batch of tracks that initially appeared on 78rpm singles! The set's got notes in English, and is one of the first we've seen to do a really great job with this period of flamenco. LP, Vinyl record album

Bob AndyLots Of Love & I (180 gram orange vinyl pressing) ... LP
High Note/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
Bob Andy's come a long way here from his earlier work with Marcia Griffiths – taking on some new rasta energy, as you might guess from the title – and singing in an even headier style than before! The set was recorded at Treasure Isle, with bad-stepping rhythms from Sly & Robbie, and a nice current of dub on the production – all of which really sets the stage for Bob's richly soulful vocals on tunes that include "Troubled Woman", "Lots Of Love & I", "Unchain Me", "Stepping Free", "Revelation", "The Ghetto Stays IN My Mind", and "You Lied".

Das EfxStraight Up Sewaside (180 gram colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
East West/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1993. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99
The somewhat slept on second album by Das Efx – and in hindsight, it's just as solid as Dead Serious – maybe even more consistently strong than the breakout debut! 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. You've heard us an just about anyone else with an opinion about hip hop history go on and on about the golden years of the early 90s, and this rock solid effort deserves as much acclaim as many of the better remembered records of the day. With the tracks "Baknaffek", "Wontu", "Check It Out", "Undaground Rappa", "Gimme Dat Micraphone", "It'z Lik Dat", "Host Wit Da Most", "Rappaz", and "Freakit". LP, Vinyl record album

Don DrummondMemorial Album (180 gram orange vinyl pressing) ... LP
Trojan/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
A mighty tribute to the great Don Drummond – the trombonist whose tone and timing really helped the 60s Jamaican scene find its groove! Don played on countless vocal and instrumental sessions before he left this planet all too soon – and this smoking memorial album is a mighty testament to his powers – an all-instrumental package that's filled with strong solo moments by Drummond in a variety of settings, mostly in a rocksteady groove! There's great organ and tenor on a number of cuts (Jackie Mittoo and Tommy McCook?) – and titles include "Street Corner", "Latin Goes Ska", "Green Island", "Garden Of Love", "Feeling Fine", "Silver Dollar", "Let George Do It", "Knock Out Punch", and "Dr Decker".

✨✧ Das EfxHold It Down (180 gram colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
East West/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1995. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Das EFX's third album finds them holding down a more jam-packed approach than ever before – longer by half than their previous LPs and with a strong sense of purpose! Das EFX appeared with such a unique rhyme style, by this point they really needed to balance the tasks of being recognizable as as the hard-hitting duo with the distinctive approach to rhymes, without relying on it as a gimmick, and here they largely succeed – with production from Premier, Showbiz, Easy Mo Bee, Klark Kent, DJ Scratch and more. Tracks include "No Diggedy", "Represent The Real" with KRS, "Microphone Master", "Hold It Down", "Bad News" with PMD, "Real Hip Hop", "40 & A Blunt", "Ready To Rock Rough Rhymes", and lots more!

✨✧ Lee DorseyYes We Can (180 gram green vinyl pressing) ... LP
Polydor/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Massive work by Lee Dorsey – recorded years after his classics in the 60s, and even funkier overall! Lee's really cooking on all burners here – working with the production team of Allen Toussaint and Marshall Sehorn, and getting some incredible backing from The Meters – who are at the height of their powers during this period! In a way, the set's one of the ultimate New Orleans sessions of the 70s – a culmination of all the best elements that were percolating together in the 60s indie underground, simmered together perfectly in a tighter 70s Polygram funk mode! Includes the massive original version of "Yes We Can" – way better than any of the subsequent cover versions – plus great takes on"Who's Gonna Help Brother Get Further", "Sneakin' Sally Through The Alley", "Gator Tail", "Tears Tears & More Tears", "When The Bill's Paid", and "Occapella".

Trojan/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A standout classic from Mikey Dread – a set recorded at the end of the 70s, when influences of reggae and dub were flowing out towards other genres and artists too – a moment that only saw studio giants like Mikey further refining their craft, to set their records apart from the rest! There's definitely some dubby currents here, but most of the focus is on the vocals and toasting of Dread – often delivered over nicely bubbling rhythms with help from Sly & Robbie, plus Augustus Pablo on electric piano, Chinna Smith on guitar, and Ansel Collins on organ. Titles include "King In the Ring", "Voice Of Jah", "Dread Combination", and "Everybody Needs A Proper Education". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Brother Dan All StarsLet's Catch The Beat (180 gram orange vinyl pressing) ... LP
Trojan/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Placebo (Marc Moulin)Placebo (1974) (180 gram white vinyl pressing) ... LP
EMI/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Aphrodite's ChildEnd Of The World (180 gram gold colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Mercury/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A brilliant criss-crossing of pop modes in late 60s Europe – and the first album from Greek rock supergroup Aphrodite's Child! Although later work by the trio was a fair bit more heady, the approach here is more focused psychedelic pop – done in styles that echo strongly with some of the late 60s styles coming out of the Parisian scene, which is where the group were working at the time. Lyrics, though, are sung mostly in English – which gives the record a bit of a Brit psychedelic feel – but there's some other elements here that are also strongly the group's own. A young Demi Roussos sings lead vocals and plays guitar, and new age maestro Vangelis plays organ and percussion with a sound that's quite different than any of his later work! Titles include "End Of The World", "Day Of The Fool", "Valley Of Sadness", "Rain & Tears", "Mister Thomas", "You Always Stand In My Way", and "The Shepherd & The Moon". LP, Vinyl record album

Dorothy AshbyDorothy's Harp (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Cadet/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99 29.99
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"!

A sweet little take on the TV theme world of the 60s – served up by Brit maestro Frank Chacksfield at a level that's maybe a little bit more groovy than some of his other records from the time! Frank's still working with a very full orchestra, but the songs themselves have an inherently cool quality that his musicians can't help to pick up – as they make their way through versions of "Rawhide", "Route 66", "Dragnet", "Alfred Hitchcock Theme", "Dick Van Dyke Show", "Man From UNCLE", "Bonanza", "Marriage", and "Peter Gunn".

ComusFirst Utterance (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Dawn/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1970. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $23.99 25.98
A legendary group who never fully got their due – and maybe one of the creepier acts on the British scene at the start of the 70s! The cover art probably gives things away – but the sound of the record is even more haunting – with some acoustic elements that echo the acid folk movement of the time, but more dynamic energy at other spots that resonate more with prog – all topped by vocals that have a completely sinister sound that really makes the group stand out! Despite the acoustic guitars, these guys are hardly the traditional-leaning style of some of their folk rock contemporaries – and, if anything, it feels like they opened up some Pandora's box from the past, and let out all this weird Wicker Man energy. Titles include "Bitten", "The Prisoner", "Diana", "The Herald", "Song To Comus", and "Drip Drip". LP, Vinyl record album

Francois De RoubaixDaughters Of Darkness (Les Levres Rouges) (180 gram pressing – with bonus tracks) ... LP
Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), Early 70s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
One of the spookiest soundtracks ever crafted by one of our favorite film composers of all time! Francois DeRoubaix always had this amazing style to his music – unlike anyone else, especially in the way he could blend together spare acoustic elements and unusual sonic and electronic touches! There's a very intimate feel to the record – almost as if Francois is performing most of the sounds in the studio himself – balancing a guitar line with a keyboard fill, a bowed bass bit with drums, soaring strings with trumpet, and so on – occasionally hitting some funky touches that really keep things interesting – and which makes some of DeRoubaix best work on a par with the genius of Serge Gainsbourg and Jean-Claude Vannier! Titles include "The Countess Kiss", "Phantom Organ & Piano", "Pursuit On The Dunes Of Ostend", "Accident & Cymbalum", "Love On The Rails", "Red Lips", "Ballad In Bruges", and "The Dunes Of Ostend Flagellation". Also features two bonus tracks not used in the film – "Dracula 68 Woodstock" and "The Bruges Band". LP, Vinyl record album

EthiopiansEngine 54 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Trojan/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
A rocksteady classic from The Ethiopians – but a set that also has plenty more going on as well! The duo work here as a Jamaican counterpart to American soul groups – one of the first and best to hit the Kingston scene – but they also open themselves up to lots of other ideas in the process, and sometimes lay back vocally to just let the album open up and groove! Harmonies are The Ethiopians' strongest calling card – but they're often first directed by the rhythms, then slide in to warm things up and give a larger presence to the slow-stepping, midtempo grooves – all delivered with a classic Kingston head-nodding approach. The album's a key genre-building moment in Jamaican music – and titles include the classic "Train To Skaville", plus "Engine 54", "My Love", "You Got The Dough", "Woman's World", "Long Time Now", and "Unchanged Love".

Atlantic/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
A monster album that's gone onto influence a generation – but which was barely recognized at the time! Singer Eugene McDaniels had scored big with some pop hits in the 60s under the name Gene McDaniels – but here, he steps out in a righteous batch of offbeat funk tunes – filled with politics, offbeat rhythms, and some very weird instrumentation. The whole thing's awash in moody, jazzy changes – of the style that showed up often in samples by Tribe Called Quest, Beastie Boys, and other artists who drew keen inspiration from this record. Titles include the massive "Jagger the Dagger" – plus "The Lord Is Back", "Lovin Man", "Headless Heroes", "Freedom Death Dance", and "Supermarket Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

Ananda ShankarAnanda Shankar (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Reprise/Music On Vinyl (UK), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99 27.98
Insanely fantastic! Ananda Shankar was one of the hippest sitar players of the 60s – an artist who was not only steeped in the strongest traditions of Indian music heard in other more mainstream players, but one who also had a keen ear for modder and funkier grooves of the time! This rare American set by Ananda is one of his greatest ever – a brilliant mix of funky backings and tripped out sitar work – done in a way that blends together soul, funk, and rock – all given a particularly cool Indian twist. The vibe is very much in the best funky Bollywood style – but was actually done years before most Bollywood funk – and the set includes great covers of "Jumpin Jack Flash" and "Light My Fire", plus great original tracks like "Sagar (The Ocean)", "Snow Flower", "Dance Indra", and "Metamorphosis".

VariousGreatest Jamaican Beat – Rock Steady Baba Boom Time (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Treasure Isle/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... About August 15, 2019 (delayed)
Seminal Duke Reid productions from the key rocksteady years – and a set that shows just how much the rhythm was changing things on the Jamaican scene, both at a vocal and instrumental level! There's a slow-loping vibe to most of these tracks – an approach that really sets the scene for the reggae explosion to come – yet most of the instrumentation still has the strong horn work of the ska/blue beat generation, and even some of the jazzier work of the Kingston scene at the start of the 60s – thanks in large part to Tommy McCook, who plays a fair bit on the set. Titles include "Tommy's Rock Steady", "Hot Rock", "Soul Serenade", and "Down On Bond Street" by Tommy McCook & The Supersonics – plus the killer "Baba Boom" by The Jamaicans, "Drink Wine" by The Techniques", "Release Me" by Phyllis Dillon, "Mercy Mercy Mercy" by The Paragons, and a great remake of "Hey Leroy Your Mama's Calling You" by Sam Jones.

Trojan/Music On Vinyl (UK), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
A set that's not only a classic collection of early Jamaican gems on Trojan Records – but one that also stands as a fantastic tribute to the studio genius of early reggae producer Leslie Kong! Kong had an ear that was crucial to the rocksteady scene at the end of the 60s – and here, you'll hear his impeccable choice of songs, singers, and musicians throughout – the kind of all-soul, rock-solid talents that helped push the world of Jamaican music from just being an American offshoot to really finding a voice of its own! The rhythms are fantastic – well-woven, but never muddy – and topped with vocals by solo singers and groups who represent some of the best of the scene. Titles include "Show Me The Way" by Delroy Wilson, "Freedom Street" by Ken Boothe, "Sweet Sensation" by The Melodians, "Monkey Man" by The Maytals, "Cotton Dandy" by Ansel Collins & The Beverleys All Stars, "So Much Love" by Joe White, "Simmer Down Quashie" by The Pioneers, "I'm The One" by Bruce Ruffin, and "There's A Fire" by The Gaylads.

Sony/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1960s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $9.99
Volume 1 of this incredible series – a treasure trove of 60s soul, all of it music that played big at the legendary Twisted Wheel! The club was one of the early hotbeds of Northern Soul activity in the UK – and the cuts here have a raw-edged, hard-grooving quality that showcases the mix of R&B and soul that was first going down in the scene – pulled together from a range of smaller label 45s, and presented by Ian Dewhirst with track-by-track notes, and some good memories from years back as well! Titles include "Hide & Go Seek" by Bunker Hill, "That's What I Want To Know" by James Carr, "No Sad Songs" by Oscar Toney, "My Elusive Dreams" by Moses & Joshua Dillard, "A Little Bit Of Something" by Little Richard, "It's The Beat" by Major Lance, "Look What You've Done To My Heart" by Shirley & The Shirelles, "The Cheater" by Bob Kuban & The In-Men, "Magic Potion" by Lou Johnson, "I Need Your Love So Desperately" by Peaches & Herb, "Breakin Down The Walls Of Heartache" by The Bandwagon, "Everybody's Going To The Love-In" by Bob Brady & The Con-Chords, and "You're Gonna Make Me Love You" by Sandi Sheldon. 25 tracks in all!

Beserkley/Music On Vinyl (UK), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Raw, sweet, deadpan pop songs about summer mornings, the ice cream man, rollercoasters, and cars from the strangely whimsical Jonathan Richman! This is Jonathan's third album for Beserkely (and the second to come out in early '77) – and the true beginning of the second phase of his career, which cast him as an oddball manchild who rattled out weird, three chord tunes about whatever seemed to be going through his development-arrested mind at the time. It's all still very sweet, very catchy, and all about acoustic stream of consciousness cuteness. This was all still very amazing in the mid 70s – well before tongue-in-cheek hipsters like the Violent Femmes used Richmond-esque quirkiness as pure gimmickery. It may a notch below his previous couple of classic albums – but Rock And Roll is still a gem! "The Sweeping Wind", "Ice Cream Man", "Summer Morning", "Fly Into Mystery", "Roller Coaster By The Sea", "Coomyah", "Egyptian Reggae", "The Wheels On The Bus" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Desmond Dekker's impeccable voice was always so strongly rooted on earlier soul, both Jamaican and global, and the tight rhythms under it laid down by the appropriately-named Aces is aces indeed.

An incredible soundtrack – one of the all-time greats of the 70s! Dave Grusin really outdid himself with this one – and created a sublime mix of sound, space, and spare funky beats that holds up wonderfully all the way through! The main theme steps around in a haunting mix of electric piano, basslines, and muted trumpets over strings – and lots of other tunes on the set follow the same format – taking the best of funky Morricone and Francis Lai, and giving it an even hipper American twist! Plus, most of Grusin's soundtrack work of this nature was never properly issued (like his great tunes for Barretta!) – and this rare album is one of the few that ever made it, however briefly, to the record racks! Titles include "Condor", "Yellow Panic", "Out To Lunch", "Flight Of The Condor", and "Flashback To Terror". Loads of great keyboards! LP, Vinyl record album

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".

The style here is much more stretched-out and spacious – really moving into jazz more than rock, and featuring very long tracks that each spin out for a side each on the expanded 2LP format of the record. Robert Wyatt makes a final appearance with the group here on drums – and the rest of the lineup features organ and piano by Mike Ratledge, bass by Hugh Hopper, saxes by Elton Dean, and trombone by Nick Evans – all working in a style that wonderfully mixes experimental moments with much more fluid grooves!

Baker's vocals are amazing right from the start – raw, but with a vocal range that's really impressive – able to soar, dip, and turn on a dime – even when Atlantic's giving her some larger backings, the sorts of sounds that might hold back another singer – but hardly slow LaVerne at all! The package is the first full LP to bring together Baker's classic singles for Atlantic – with titles that include "Jim Dandy", "Tra La La", "Bop Ting A Ling", "Tweedle Dee", "Still", "Soul On Fire", "I Can't Love You Enough", and "Get Up Get Up".

Errol Brown works here in the Treasure Isle studios with massive rhythms from The Revolutionaries – but in a session that also includes a mysterious harmonica player too – who uses the instrument to carve out unusual riffs that are sometimes jazz, sometimes bluesy – almost making it feel like War's Lee Oskar is sitting in for a session down in Kingston! The instrument is quite different here than when melodica is used in dub – and titles include "Eva A Dub", "Marigunna Affair", "Babylon Dubbing", "Escape Affair", "Biblical Dub", and "Easy Locks".

The band here is different than before – with Zoot Money handling both organ and piano, plus a bit of vocals, and Andy Summers joining in on guitar – and production is by the group itself, who shake off some of the trippier styles of previous records, and almost go for a "live in studio" sort of sound! There's a confluence of styles here that's really great – some of the blues of the group's roots, bits of Eric Burdon's growing love of soul, and some fuzzier touches as well. Some tracks are quite long jams, and titles include "Gemini", "Madman", "As The Years Go Passing By", "To Love Somebody", and "I'm An Animal". CD

✨✧ HawkwindHawkwind (180 gram pressing) ... LP
United Artists/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1970. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The fantastic first album from Hawkwind – a pure moment of genius, from a time when the group had so much to deliver, and hadn't yet succumbed to their own greatness! If you only know later work, the style here is maybe more closely tied to some of the more familiar late 60s modes from the UK – certainly nascent prog and trippy psych elements at play – but, as with Pink Floyd right at the start, these guys are really marking their own territory – in part by their inventive blend of electronics with soaring guitars, driving rhythms, and some especially great touches on alto sax. The whole thing's wonderful – a record that should have been huge at the time, and which has certainly gotten legendary status since then – and titles include "Hurry On Sundown", "The Reason Is", "Be Yourself", "Paranoia (parts 1 & 2)", "See As You Really Are" and "Mirror Of Illusion".

Chess/Music On Vinyl (UK), 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An excellent set of messed-up funky soul from Etta James – one of her killer early 70s sides for Chess! The album mixes together bluesy tracks and straight ahead soul – in a hip, bad-walking style that nicely updates Etta's older style for the 70s. The set includes a great funky cut called "Out On The Street Again", which sounds like it should be the theme to some blacksploitation film because it's got these cool strings, and a nice hard groove. Other cuts include "Power Play", "Mama Told Me", "You Give Me What I Want", and "Come A Little Closer". CD also features a bonus track – the single edit of "Out On The Street Again". CD

A sweet 80s groover fro Chaka Khan – one that features a fair bit of beats and bassline – thanks to tight production from Prince, Chris Jasper, and Russ Titelman! Russ is actually the man behind most of the set – and he really shows off his great talent for a hook-heavy soul tune – keeping things relatively electro overall, but always letting Chaka be the star of the show with her wonderfully warm vocals – still soaring out every bit as much as in her previous work with Arif Mardin, and maybe even more essential in this setting! Titles include "Soul Talkin", "Sticky Wicked", "The End Of A Love Affair", "Make It Last", "I'll Be Around", and "Signed Sealed Delivered". CD

Polydor/Music On Vinyl (UK), 1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Really tremendous work from Mandrill – an instant funky classic, and a set that has the group furthering the sublime sound they crafted on their seminal Composite Truth! The record has all these wonderful twists and turns – not just the usual 70s funky styles, but inflections from a globe's worth of influences – all filtered down and used here in fresh new ways to really keep the sound interesting – with a tightness that's never slick, and which instead has this really visionary approach that may well top some of Mandrill's higher-charting contemporaries! Instrumentation has plenty of jazz inflections, which really keeps things interesting – and the percussion has so many different styles going on, it's hard to keep track! Titles include the massive sample cut "Fat City Strut" – plus "Never Die", "Two Sisters Of Mystery", "She Ain't Lookin Too Tough", "Interlude", "Mango Meat", "Afrikus Retrospectus", and "Aspiration Flame".

Duck BakerSpinning Song – Duck Baker Plays The Music Of Herbie Nichols (180 gram red vinyl presing) ... LP
Avant/Triple Point, 1996. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
Guitarist Duck Baker takes on the music of Herbie Nichols – the sometime-overlooked modernist of the postwar years, a player that some folks rank right up there with Thelonious Monk – later given his due with a run of revival projects like this! Nichols' music sounds very different here – less of the sharp percussive angles that a piano might create – and almost more warmly chromatic, through the acoustic guitar readings of the tunes by Baker – himself a very creative player, and really setting himself apart from some of his contemporaries with this project. The album's got equal appeal to both fans of Herbie's mid-century modernism, and the decades of creative acoustic guitar solo material that came before Baker's rise – work by John Fahey, Robbie Basho, and others. Titles include "117th Street", "Portrait Of Ucha", "House Party Starting", "Nick At T's", and "Spinning Song". LP, Vinyl record album

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

Guitar legend George Benson pays tribute to the music of New Orleans – and also hearkens back to his earliest years in R&B, before he rose to jazz fame in the 60s! George sings as much as he plays guitar here – working in a tight combo that's heavy on soul styles – and most tunes are remakes of Nola classics, mixed with some other Chuck Berry songs, done in a more contemporary mode. The set's a fair bit grittier than most of Benson's recent recordings, and also has a tight horn section too – on titles that include "You Can't Catch Me", "Ain't That A Shame", "Blue Monday", "How You've Changed", "Walking To New Orleans", "I Hear You Knocking", and "Havana Moon".

Stamford Audio (UK), 1968. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $14.99
An extended rock mass from Canterbury Glass – a very early entry in the genre that included work from David Axelrod, Mind Garage, and many others! There's less of a "holy" feel going on here than on other efforts of this type – as Canterbury Glass bring in a fair bit of heavy guitar to their work, mixed with harpsichord and flute to lighten things up at times – and topped with some chanted vocals to accent the spiritual feel of the music. Production is good, but relatively stripped down – which keeps a more earnest quality in place, and never lets things get too overblown. Titles include "Kyrie", "Nunc Dimittis", "Gloria", and "Prologue". LP, Vinyl record album

Nicholas CarrasMr Peters' Pets (yellow vinyl pressing – with DVD) ... LP
Modern Harmonic/Something Weird, 1962. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.99
A very cool soundtrack for a very weird movie – an early 60s nudie film, but one that's a fair bit tamer and sweeter than material from later in the decade! The focus here is on the music – which is surprisingly well-done, and mixes jazz with exotic currents – often with a lot more thoughtfulness than you might expect, at a level that puts some of the best tracks here right up there with the best early 60s Italian noir jazz classics. Nicholas Carras wrote and conducted – but there's a tenorist on the album that really makes the whole thing great, someone who can play with the depth of Plas Johnson at his best. Titles include the eleven-minute "A Happy Turtle" – plus "Jungle Duck", "Three Sporty Ladies", "Petey's Sweeties", "The Happy Animal", "Animal Ambrosia", and "My Little Shasta".

Real life, self searching and personal statement making hip hop from a voice rooted in classic 90s school craft – not so much with a neo-classic sound as much as a strong commitment to beats, rhymes and life experience. Good stuff! Includes production by Nolan The Ninja, Apollo Brown, L'Orange, Onra and Exile – and given the self-protrait mission the guest rhymes kept to a minimum, with just a couple worthy appearances, courtesy Verbal Kent and Fashawn.

A wild mix of electric and acoustic sounds from Henning Christiansen – done as a soundtrack for a film that's represented with images inside the cover – images that make the movie look as wild as the music on the record! Sounds come from a variety of sources – glass bowls, tubes, piano, baritone horn, synthesizer, and many voices – but all often abstracted by the production, and taken into territory where even the more familiar moments get completely changed up – with a disorienting vibe that's almost an 80s evolution of earlier electro-acoustic modes. Titles include "The Mirror", "The Red Door", "Wolf Song", "Durand's Flute", "The End", "Landscape With Wolves Bed", and "The Blue Room". LP, Vinyl record album

Steven A ClarkWhere Neon Goes To Die (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Secretly Canadian, 2018. New Copy ... $8.99 19.98
Really compelling music from Steven A Clark – a singer who's definitely in a contemporary soul vein, but who also seems to be using all these references from the 80s – but in an unusual way! Unlike other singers who go straight for an 80s bass or boogie mode, Steven instead almost feels like he's sampling old records from the catalogs of labels like 4AD, Factory, or Creation – then using those sounds in the background to create these really unique colors and sonic elements – all while working on lyrics that are relatively straightforward! Imagine if David Sylvian ever produced a soul record, and you'll get part of the picture – but Clark is definitely his own man throughout, on titles that include "Evil Woman", "Feel This Way", "Maria Under The Moon", "On & On", "Did I Hurt U", "Days Like This", and "What Can I Do".

John ColtraneCosmic Music ... LP
Impulse, 1968. Good Gatefold ... $19.99
A set that really earns its title – as it's easily some of the most cosmic music John Coltrane ever recorded – and also kind of a way of saying goodbye to the planet, to leave his music in the hands of a next generation of creators! The album features material recorded by a Coltrane group in 1966, and an Alice Coltrane combo in 1968, after Coltrane's death – making it a great link between two moments in the group – especially since Pharoah Sanders plays tenor and Alice Coltrane plays piano on both tracks. The Coltrane tunes – "Manifestation" and "Reverend King" – both have a righteous raw power – and the Alice Coltrane numbers – "The Sun" and "Lord Help Me" – really showcase the slower-building spiritual energy that both she and Pharoah Sanders would carry on in their music. Great stuff throughout – and completely essential! LP, Vinyl record album

A really spooky soundtrack from Pino Donaggio – even if the instrumentation is somewhat standard! The music is for the great Nicolas Roeg film Don't Look Now – set in a slowly rotting Venice, and filled with moody mystery and hints of horror – but all elements that never fully get exposed or explained in the narrative! Donaggio's music is a bit like that – outwardly familiar, but always a bit unsettling – but in ways that are very different from the more direct approach of standard Italian horror work of the 70s.

Bob DoroughMultiplication Rock (colored vinyl pressing) (2019 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Capitol, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99
Sure, it was silly stuff when we were kids – but once De La Soul sampled "Three Is The Magic Number", this record became one of the most prized in our possession! And thanks to that hip hop reintroduction, we've really fallen in love with the music again over the years – partly because the tunes are all so groovy, and partly because we've really come to know the jazz-based work of composer Bob Dorough! At the time of this set, Dorough was coming off some great work in the 60s – his own rare recordings, music for Spanky & Our Gang, and others – all of which seems to inform these math-based tunes written for Saturday morning TV. The tunes are all pretty darn catchy, and often quite jazzy – and instrumentation often features some great electric piano nestled in alongside the vocals. Dorough sings the lion's share of the work for this album – although Grady Tate sings on two numbers, and Blossom Dearie on one more. Titles include the amazing "Three Is A Magic Number" – plus "Lucky Seven Sampson", "Little Twelve Toes", "Ready Or Not Here I Come", "I Got Six", "Naughty Number Nine", "Figure Eight", and "The Four Legged Zoo".

One of the most incredible rock albums of all time – Dylan's sprawling, shambling, poetic genius at it's most revolutionary if you ask us – the landmark Blonde On Blonde! It's got that surrealistic, 4AM and still bursting with creativity kind of feeling that he'd never even try to find again and it's filled with tracks that he comes back to live late in life perhaps more than any other single album. As great as rock music would ever get, this record.

Daptone, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... On September 6, 2019
Monumental Afro Soul from El Rego Et Ses Commandos – El Rego's best recordings from the late 60s to early 70s – a beautifully done compilation put together by Daptone and Frank Gossner, the deep digging West African music expert behind Voodoo Funk! Theophile Do-Rego is a legend in his native Benin, essentially credited as the godfather of Benin funk – but to date, he hasn't been celebrated around the world nearly as famously as the superstars of African music hailing from Nigeria and Ghana. That's something that can change really quickly if enough people pick up this truly great compilation of pioneering recordings. Singer El Rego and his excellent, diversely capable band – sax and flute by Baboni Oudou, sax by Michel Diogo, guitar by Oscar De Souza, trumpet by Emmanuel Ganssounou, guitar by Roger Coffi, tumba by Marcelin Kpohonon, additional vocals by Christian Agueh, and bass by band leader Paul Hounnou – take a tighter approach to funky soul. Just a couple tracks on this set roll past the 4 minute mark – which gives it a tighter soul sound, along with some Benin blues and some riveting JB-indebted vocal affections. We owe Voodoo Funk and Daptone big for putting this together! Includes "Feeling You Got", "Zon Dede", "E Nan Mian Duku", "Dkobime", "Dis-Moi Oui", "Djobime", "Hessa" (the centerpiece of the album, 3 minutes of Afro Soul perfection. . .the whole set is great, but this track is unforgettable), "Kpon Fi La", "Do Do Baya", "Vive Le Renouveau", "Achuta", "Cholera" and "Ke Amon-Gbetchea".

Flamin GrooviesFlamingo (hot pink vinyl pressing) ... LP
Kama Sutra/Culture Factory, 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $23.99 24.98
One of the finest moments ever from The Flamin Groovies – a set that's awash in 50s rock and roll influences, yet filtered through the heady late 60s San Francisco scene – making for a mix that's completely compelling throughout, and unlike anything else we can think of! The Groovies might initially seem like retro-rockers, yet they've got this sharp edge that makes their music more of a commentary on rock and roll, and its roots as well – uttered beautifully at a time when so many others were falling into excess, but also done without any of the "roots" cliches that others were embracing in a much clunkier way! It's hard to sum up adequately, but the record's almost a leap forward from Gene Vincent over 60s psyche – but on its way to the rough edges embraced by the UK punk scene in years to come – kind of that odd space that the Modern Lovers hit with their Kim Fowley recordings, but much more rocking overall. Most numbers are originals from vocalist Roy Loney – and titles include "Comin After Me", "Headin For The Texas Border", "Second Cousin", "Childhood's End", "Jailbait", and "She's Falling Apart".

According to reports, George Clinton and the band cut this set in a marathon 48-hour stretch in the studio – working like mad all night and day long, after dropping a motherlode of some mighty fine acid! We don't know if that story's entirely true, but the music on the album certainly backs it up – as it's some of the band's freest, most open-ended, most heavy-jamming work ever recorded! Guitars dominate over funky bass and drums – and the whole thing's an amazing blend of music, swirled together into a non-stop psychedelic party that includes P-Funk gems like "Funky Dollar Bill", "Free Your Mind", "Eulogy and Light", and "I Wanna Know If It's Good To You".

Maybe one of the coolest albums of poetry ever recorded – a set that features a young, pre-hippie Allen Ginsberg – delivering his epic poem Howel, plus some other key works too. The young Ginsberg's voice is great – and really fills the works with a lot of bitterness and cynicism – with maybe more of a beat-era presentation than you'd know from his other later records, especially the music ones. This is one of the few albums that San Francisco-based Fantasy records cut of famous beat poets reading their own work – and it's probably one of the most enduring! Ginsberg reads "Howl", "Footnote To Howl", "Sunflower Sutra", "Supermarket In California", and other poems from the late 50s – and there's no musical accompaniment at all. LP, Vinyl record album

The style here is a mix of the mod dramatic modes used by Gray in his more famous work, and some of the 60s future/sci fi styles that show up in the work of Peter Thomas at the time – an amazingly inventive use of organ, woodwinds, and other more traditional instrumentation – to create eerie sounds and themes that almost sound electronic! There's a few nice grooves on the set, but the real charm is in the overall soundtrack work – a beautiful retro/future vision that's finally seeing the light of day in this limited vinyl-only collection!

One of the best of the blacksploitation scores of the early 70s – a masterpiece of music that we rate every bit as high as Shaft or Superfly – maybe even higher! The music here is incredible – a surprising funky turn for JJ Johnson, who most folks know for his straighter jazz work – and like Marvin Gaye, Barry White, and others who were surprising the world with their ability to score music for a full film during the early 70s, JJ really knocks it out of the park with this one – coming up with a batch of tunes that are a wonderful mix of sophisticated scoring, creative instrumentation, and some damn funky grooves! The title cut features Joe Simon on vocals, and Millie Jackson sings on the cuts "Love Doctor" and "It Hurts So Good".

The set's got a cover and title that might make you expect more conventional modes – after all, everyone is familiar with the concept of a wedding album – but instead, the whole thing's a wonderful freakout that almost makes "Revolution Number 9" from the White Album feel like a pop single! The record features two side-long tracks – each very open and almost like performance art – "John & Yoko", which features lots of analogue electronics, and the couple shouting each others' names in this way that's surprisingly moving – and "Amsterdam", which is a longer songform, with surprisingly beautiful vocals from Yoko!

Great music from the second season of Twin Peaks – and a continuing illustration of the power of Angelo Baldamenti's music for the show! The strength of these simple themes and tunes is clear right from the get-go – as Angelo serves things up in a mode that's subtle, but still filled with the dark mystery that made the show so great – and all these many years later, there's a surprisingly timeless feel to the sound of the work, given that Baldamenti chose to use better keyboards and piano than the usual early 90s styles – plus a fair bit of acoustic instrumentation with a jazzy undercurrent as well. The package is a bit heavier on photos than notes, so we're not sure of the exact placement of all these cuts – but we can say that the CD features 22 tracks that include "Shelly", "Love Theme Intro", "I'm Hurt Bad", "Cop Beat", "Barbershop", "Harold's Theme", and "Packard's Vibration".

Schema (Italy), 2009. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $29.99
A real rising star on Schema Records – composer Alessandro Magnanini, best known for his hit with Mario Biondi – stepping out here in a beautiful album of his own original music! There's a fresh feel here that really opens up a new chapter at Schema – still a bit of their old jazz/bossa vibe, but with a more expansive quality too – one that embraces bits of Bacharach, snaps of 60s soundtracks, and gentler jazzier passages too – all put together by a group that features key talents from the contemporary Italian scene – like vocalists Rosalia De Souza and Stefania Rava, trumpeter Fabrizio Bosso, and other instrumentalists on vibes, piano, tenor, and trombone. Most instrumentation is live – scored nicely, but not enough so that it loses the spontaneity of jazz – and other vocals are by Jenny B and Liam McKahey. The work is really beautiful – still mostly upbeat, but hardly just the stuff of dancefloor grooving too – key proof that Maganini's a big talent to watch in years to come. Titles include "Livin My Life", "Open Up Your Eyes", "Stay Into My Life", "But Not For You", "Greetings From Here", "Something Fine", "Suddenly", "Blind Date Blues", and "So Long Goodbye".

The music here is every bit as political and socially conscious as earlier recordings of the genre – but you can also hear some of the cool 60s changes taking place on the Caribbean scene – including great use of horns to inflect most of the tunes with a great sort of edge – in the way Jamaican jazz and mento styles were shifting gears into rocksteady and ska!

A later Ennio Morricone film score – one done around the turn of this century, and with a nicely understated vibe that marks most of the maestro's music from the previous decade! The score features solo piano and violin – the latter by a few different musicians – but almost always presented with that sense of spaciousness that makes Morricone so great – maybe graced more with the sentimentality of his final years, than some of the darker, atonal styles of the 70s. Titles include "Songs That My Mother Taught Me", "Corsa", "Avvolgente", "Elmetti Di Fuoco", "All'Aperto", "Golidari", and "Capriccio La Cacci". LP, Vinyl record album
(On heavyweight translucent pink vinyl!)

Ennio MorriconeHolocaust 2000 (splatter explosion colored vinyl) ... LP
Beat/Dagored (Italy), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
Nice to know that we've lived past the year 2000 – and have managed to miss the holocaust that Kirk Douglas fought in this late 70s film! The movie's just the kind of overdone thriller that Kirk handled late in his career – but thankfully, the music from Ennio Morricone is much deeper overall – done in that brilliant blend of creepy styles that could make anything come together on the screen, even without any good special effects or dialogue! Some numbers have spooky, spare passages with earthy percussion and woodwinds, others have offbeat strings, some have some light electric elements – and overall, the music is nicely understated, always classy, and years ahead of some of the cheaper horror scoring of the time. Titles include "Holocaust", "Computer", "Slogan", "Jesus", "Il Bene Cattivo", "Serie Di Tre", "Strofa Monodica", and "Telefonata Interrotta". LP, Vinyl record album

Lee MosesHow Much Longer Must I Wait – Singles & Rarities 1965 to 1972 (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Future Days/Light In The Attic, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $23.99 27.98
Fantastic work from Lee Moses – an underground funky soul singer who never saw great fame in the 70s, but who's hit legendary status in recent years – thanks to collectors and DJs around the world! Lee is best known for his album Time & Place, but he also cut a number of other excellent singles before and after that famous set – most of which are collected here, along with a few unissued tracks – all making the whole album a fantastic second chapter in the too-short Moses career in music! Much of this work has a very gritty vibe – southern soul, handled with funkier currents – often with production that's nice and raw around the edges, which makes these tracks feel way deeper and dirtier than anything that might have come from Memphis or Muscle Shoals. The set's a bit short on notes, so we're not sure of the details of all cuts – but we can say that the singles were originally issued on the Dynamo, Gates, Front Page, Musicor, and Lee John labels – with titles that include "Bad Girl (parts 1 & 2)", "You Are Too Much For The Human Heart", "I'm Sad About It", "How Much Longer", "My Adorable One", "Diana", "Day Tripper", "Reach Out I'll Be There", "I'm Sad About It", "If Loving You Is A Crime", "She's A Bad Girl", "Pouring Water On A Drowning Man", "What Do You Do", and "I Can't Take No Chances".

Alan MunsonOne Man's Journey – 1972 to 1979 (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Modern Harmonic, Mid 70s. New Copy ... $14.99 24.99
Alan Munson might look like some sort of tough biker on the cover, but the music within is surprisingly sensitive – really well-penned singer/songwriter material, done with a style that's personal, and also quite unique! There's a vibe here that almost reminds us more of an artist of this nature from the UK scene in the early or mid 80s – a slight sense of distance from his topics at times, but also this almost world-weary sensibility – not in a way that makes you feel like Munson doesn't care, but maybe that he's found a way to hide himself slightly, maybe to ease some of the pain of his lyrics. Titles include "In The Rain", "I Need A Change", "Fences", "A Visit From A Friend", "Sail Away Forever", "Late Night Morning Coffee", and "For A Long Time". LP, Vinyl record album

A few tracks here are maybe more tuneful than before – with some surprisingly bright moments – but overall, the Numan vibe is still very much in place – and those trademark vocals are completely wonderful. Titles include "White Boys & Heroes", "This Is My House", "The 1930s Rust", "We Take Mystery To Bed", "War Songs", "Music For Chameleons", and "I Assassin". LP, Vinyl record album

Oakland Elementary School Arkestra (Marshall Allen, Fred Frith, Terry Riley & Others)Saga Of Padani (colored vinyl) ... LP
Modern Harmonic, Mid 90s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $23.99 34.99
One of the coolest records of school kid music you could ever hope to own – and not just because avant legends Terry Riley, Fred Frith, and Marshall Allen each make an appearance on the project! In fact, even without those big names, the music here would still be tremendous – as it stems from a unique project in the Oakland public school system – one that introduces young grade school children to music, even if they've never performed together – combining all their efforts into a large ensemble with some really tremendous results! The lineup shifts from track to track, but there's a really unified vibe here – as reed, string, and percussion players are all finding a space to come together – often with phrasing and rhythms that are primitive, but with very modern edges – maybe like some of the larger projects by Moondog. Some of the kids are really impressive on their solos, and the overall ensemble sound is wonderful – maybe earthier than even some of the early Arkestra recordings on Saturn. This release brings together music from obscure CD and cassette releases in the 90s – with over 30 tracks in all, including "Bambi Meets Godzilla", "Waves", "Help I'm Drowning In A Sea Of Harmony", "Fireclouds", "Crazy Strings", "Excuse Me Ms Steigerwald", "Double Bock Double Rock", and a version of the Sun Ra tune "Planet Earth".

Excellent work from Ofege – a record that has this legendary 70s group getting a bit tighter and more compressed in their sound, but never with a way that's slick or commercial at all! Instead, the vocals are folded back nicely on themselves – with these really great qualities that echo the vibe of the keyboards on the set – which move with a nice flow alongside the guitars, all in a way that's very soulful, but also a bit trippy too! The set also features one very cool instrumental – "Contraband", which has some cool moogy moments – alongside other titles that include "HPB", "Our People", "Magic Music", "It's All Over", "Come Right Back", and "Bazooka Bash".

Fast-moving grooves from Dona Onete – a raw-voiced singer who really brings a lot to the music – which often feels like samba turned up a few notches on the speedometer! Rhythms are both from acoustic and electric percussion – moving quickly, but with a pace that never seems to dampen the energy of Onete – a singer whose years of experience really come through in the lyrics! Instrumentation includes strong tropical lines on guitar, a bit of sax, and a huge range of percussion from JP Cavalcante – who even plays a wooden chair at one point. Titles include "Festa Do Turbarao", "Tambor Do Norte", "Balanco Do Acai", "Musa Da Babilonia", "Vem Chamegar", and "Mexe Mexe". LP, Vinyl record album

Omnivore, 1974. Near Mint- ... $19.99
Some of the earliest work ever from Jaco Pastorius – rare demo recordings, issued in this format for the first time ever – filled to the brim with the kind of groundbreaking basswork that Jaco helped pioneer! Many tracks are relatively spare, and really give you a great chance to hear the special skills that Pastorius brought to his instrument – that level of soloing that was even more deft than most work on horns, and which pushed the instrument into really amazing territory. Other instrumentation includes Fender Rhodes, drums, steel drums, and some percussion from Don Alias – and titles include "Balloon Song", "Pans #1", "Kuru", "Havona/Continuum", "Time Lapse", and "Opus Pocus".

Cecil Payne, Phil Woods, & OthersNight At The Five Spot – The Music Of Charlie Parker ... LP
Signal, 1957. Very Good- ... $199.99
A really well done memorial to the (then) recently-departed Charlie Parker – cut with an unusual lineup that features Cecil Payne on baritone sax, Phil Woods on alto, and Frank Socolow on tenor – all working through long, laidback takes of 4 of Bird's best known compositions! There's a really relaxed feel to the record that's totally great – and the players aren't so much aping the sound of Charlie Parker's work, as they are working in the newer freedoms allows by it – stretching out in freely creative lines that never fail to please, and working here with a rhythm section that includes Duke Jordan on piano, Wendell Marshall on bass, and Art Taylor on drums. The album was recorded live at the Five Spot – and titles include "Parker's Mood", "Steeplechase", "Buzzy", and "Scrapple From The Apple". LP, Vinyl record album

Mack PorterPeace On You (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Tidal Waves, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 26.99
A really unique album from Mack Porter – a singer born in Ghana, but working here on the Swiss scene, where he'd landed after late 60s work in other European cities! The music is this very unusual hybrid of rock and soul, with a mixture of acoustic elements and larger orchestrations – and the kind of thoughtful, sensitive, singer-songwriter approach that puts Mack somewhere in the territory of other stand-alone artists of his generation – like Terry Callier, Bill Withers, or Rodriguez! The music here sounds nothing like those three – especially when Porter hits a bit of a Hendrix vocal vibe on one track – but it certainly has an equally heady quality. Titles include "Miles To Go", "Peace On You", "Till The Fall", "Freedom", "Sunday In Neon Lights", and "Back Home". LP, Vinyl record album

Sun RaCymbals/Symbols Sessions – New York City 1973 (colored vinyl) ... LP
Modern Harmonic, 1973. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $33.99 35.99
A lost slice of work from Sun Ra's early 70s years on Impulse Records – one of the few new recordings created for his association with that label (most of the titles were reissues of earlier Saturn albums) – but one that was never issued at the time! Cymbals saw some release later, during the 90s – but this package really expands on that album by adding in a whole extra set of recordings from what appear to be the same sessions – and which really flesh out the vibe of the performance! The core group is a sextet – with Ra at the helm on some of his cool electric keyboards – including minimoog, rocksichord, and Gibson Kalamazoo – with acoustic work from Eloe Omoe on bass clarinet, Tal Ebah on trumpet, Ronny Boykins on bass, Harry Ar on drums, and Derek Morris on congas. Much of the core music explores a tension between Ra's cosmic keys and the more earthy sound of the acoustic instruments – but the added material here opens up some nicely different moods, and makes the whole thing explode with deep colors. Titles on Cymbals include "Land Of The Day Star", "Thoughts Under A Dark Blue Light", "The Mystery Of Two", and "The World Of The Invisible" – and added tracks include "Space Landing", "Of Drastic Measures", "Of Otherness", "The Universe Is Calling", and "Destination Of The Known Universe".

Yet Raashan Ahmad also states that the "soul power" he refers to in the title is that which empowers his soul – which you can definitely understand in the depth of the lyrics – maybe a bit more personal and pointed than ever before for Ahmad. Production is by Kas One, Ebo, Stefonix, Headnodic, Woodstock, and Raashan himself – and titles include "Soul Train", "Move", "Day After Day", "Celebrate", "Money", and "Patience".

RubberoomGothic Architecture (colored vinyl pressing – with bonus instrumentals) ... LP
HHV/Elastic (Germany), 1995. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
A masterclass in underground hip hop from Chicago's own Rubberoom – one of the more criminally underappreciated crews from the 90s onward! Gothic Architecture is an early (and at the time cassette-only) classic that precedes their better known "debut LP" Architechnology by a few years, and it's legitimately astonishing that it's been so overlooked and under-distributed for all these years – how this didn't come out in other formats and reach a larger audience outside of the Chi scene and the deepest digging heads back then is hard to fathom. A steady live presence in their day, the group's mic skills are finely-honed and firey throughout. The early Opus production is raw and gritty, anything but murky, and holds up incredibly well to this day. What more can we say? Classic. Titles include "Synapse Gap", "High Noon", "Body Snatch'n (On The Isle)", "Buckwild", "Stacks Of 45s", "Beneath The Surface/Loft Music", "The Pit" and more. Includes 3 bonus instrumentals for "High Noon", "Body Snatch'n" and "Buckwild". LP, Vinyl record album

It's fascinating to listen to this album all these years later, with the knowledge that this hungry hip hop act from Queens was so soon to conquer the world. Great stuff from a legendary crew! This is the record where Run-DMC transitioned from their earlier style that put their own distinctive stamp on early-to-mid 80s east coast rap, to the rap group who fearlessly put rock music on notice that rap was coming to takeover. Amazing! Includes "Jam Master Jammin", "Can You Rock It Like This", "King Of Rock", "Rock The House", "You're Blind", "You Talk Too Much", "It's Not Funny" and "Darryl And Joe (Krush-Groove 3)".

A groundbreaking set from The Silver Apples – one of those records that almost didn't get fully appreciated until many decades later! The sound here is quite unique, even for the late 60s psych rock underground – and The Apples work in a blend of spacey electronics, driving percussion, and simple, stark guitar parts – a sound that's almost to their generation what the music of Suicide was to the underground of a decade later. Most tunes pulsate with an almost organic sort of quality, and the lyrics of the songs are often quite tuneful at times – a nice contrast to some of the colder styles of the instrumentation. The album's had a huge influence on countless groups in the past decade or so – for good reasons – and titles include "Oscillations", "Lovefingers", "Velvet Cave", "Whirly-Bird", "Dust", "Misty Mountain", "Program", and "Dancing Gods".

Dwight Trible on his own is already more than enough to get us to run out and buy a record – but here, the combination of his unique voice with these musicians makes for an album that's an instant masterpiece – and one that even has lots of new colors and styles compared to some of Dwight's previous work! Songs include numbers by older west coast spiritual jazz heavyweights – like Horace Tapscott, Linda Hill, Nate Morgan, James Leary, and Jesse Sharps – mixed with some of Trible's own songs, and versions of work by Carmen Lundy, Oscar Brown Jr, and Donny Hathaway. From top to bottom, start to stop, the album's a treasure – with tracks that include "It's All About Love", "Thank You Master", "Song For My Mother", "Brother Where Are You", "Some Other Time", "These Things You Are To Me", "Desert Fairy Princess", and "Mothership".

As before, there's lots of funky jazz in the mix – but often abstracted and produced in ways that open up the core elemental sounds – and singer Laville is upfront in the mix on most tracks, really helping give the music a message that matches its sound – while Ash works in the background on a range of other instruments alongside the band, including the studio as a whole – which he really seems to have mastered. Titles include "Brave New World", "Finishing Touch", "Under The Sun", "Time", "Come With Us", "Ain't Got You", "Dagon's Cashmere Jumper", "Fat King Smoke", and "I Need Money". LP, Vinyl record album

A fantastic debut from Chicago soul singer Jamila Woods – the kind of artist that makes us very proud to be located in the Windy City! Woods is an extremely inventive lyricist – strongly inspired by poetry, but also immediately trying to communicate in a wider spectrum with her sound – at a level that's maybe even smarter and more sophisticated than you'd guess from her look on the cover, which might make you think that she's just another pretty face in mainstream music! Instead, Woods seems ready to reinvent the role of the female singer in soul music – getting help from hip collaborators who include our hometown hero Chance The Rapper, as well as Nico Segal, Saba, Lorine Chia, and Noname. Titles include "Bubbles", "In My Name", "Popsicle", "Assata's Daughters", "Blk Girl Soldier", "Emerald Street", "Breadcrumbs", "Stellar", "Holy", and Good Morning" – plus "LSD", a tribute to our city's great lakefront!

A fantastic document of the first-ever Ann Arbor Blues Festival – the start of a great event that would blossom into other styles of music in the 70s, but which stood as a strong blues-based event in its initial year of 1969! In some ways, the three day series of concerts is a roots answer to Woodstock – which took place just a few weeks before – as the festival featured a great scope of blues talents, from the rootsier sort of artists who were recording for labels like Folkways or Arhoolie, to some of the sharper modern talents rising to the top on Chess or Delmark! The package alone is almost worth the price of admission – beautiful photographs of the event, detailed notes, and the first-ever release of this music – which has sat in the vaults for decades, finally to see the light of day. Titles include "Dirty Mother For You" by Roosevelt Sykes, "So Glad You're Mine" by Arthur Big Boy Crudup, "Everybody Must Suffer/Stone Crazy" by Luther Allison & The Blue Nebulae, "Help Me" by Junior Wells, "I Wonder Why" by Jimmy Dawkins, "Too Much Alcohol" by JB Hutto & His Hawks, "So Many Roads So Many Trains" by Otis Rush, "Long Distance Call" by Muddy Waters, "Off The Wall" by James Cotton Band, "Juanita" by Big Joe Williams, "Jelly Jelly Blues" by Shirley Griffin, "I Feel So Good" by Magic Sam, "Call It Stormy Monday" by T-Bone Walker, "Death Letter Blues" by Son House, "Key To The Highway" by Sam Lay, and "Mojo Hand" by Lightnin Hopkins.

Fantastic soul tracks from a label we've been loving right from the start – the long-running Timmion Records – a Finnish imprint with an amazing ear for vintage sounds and funky grooves! We know what you're thinking – Finland is a very unlikely source for great soul music – but the company's also worked with American artists right from the start, and has a deep deep appreciation for the classic modes of the vintage 45 underground – which is why this whole package feels like a stack of rare singles you might have found in the back of a New Jersey record store from the 70s! Most numbers here are mellow or midtempo, and are in a mix of deep and sweet soul modes – all handled with superb instrumentation and production from Cold Diamond & Mink, who ensure that the whole thing has just the right vibe.

As essential of a compilation as ever released by our friends at Soul Jazz, which is really saying something, because they always raise the bar! Volume Two vinyl includes 17 tracks on 2LPs, with notes and photos on the gatefold interior. Titles include "E De Lei" by Elizete Cardoso, "O Morro Nao Tem Vez" by Antonio Carlos Jobim, "Samba Blim" by Tamba 4, "Tres Pontas" by Milton Nasciemento, "Canto De Xango" by Baden Powell & Vinicius De Moraes, "Carcara" by Zelia Barbosa, "Maria Moita" by Marilia Medalha and more.

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 ... $34.99
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.

VariousEthiopian Soul & Groove – Ethiopian Urban Modern Music Vol 1 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Buda/Heavenly Sweetness (France), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $19.99
Amazing music from the golden years of Ethiopian Music – a set of tracks that will take you beyond the music of Mulatu, into a wealth of other talents from the scene at the same time! The sound here is incredible – a mix of heavy funk, spacey jazz, and other exotic touches all coming together – a unique sort of sound that's beyond referent, and which is easily some of the freshest music on the planet back in the 70s! The vinyl-only collection pulls tracks from different volumes of the Ethiopiques CD titles – and offers up a strong focus on the funkiest and grooviest numbers from that legendary series. Tracks include "Muziqawi Silt" by Wallias Band, "Hasabe" by Ayalew Mesfin, "Antchin Yagegnulet" by Tamrat Ferendji, "Amlak Abet Abet" by Asselfetch Ashine & Getenesh Kebret, "Temeles" by Alemayehu Eshete & Hirut Bequele, and "Aynotchesh Yerefu" by Samuel Belay.

VariousKing Bullard Version – Songs Of The BOS Label (brown vinyl pressing) ... LP
Numero, 1970s. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 21.99
Spiritual sounds from the Cleveland scene of the 70s – a host of lesser-known acts who recorded for the BOS label at the time, but who could easily match the best strengths of the growing gospel mainstream! The music here relies heavily on secular soul styles of the time – bits of funk or southern modes used heavily in the mix, and some great harmonies in the case of the label's standout male vocal groups – all of whom preach the spirit with the sort of humanity usually reserved for heartbreaking love! Numero have done a great job of pulling together rare singles here – and the set's got a much tighter feel than some of the label's bigger collections – a nicely focused groove that's still plenty appealing to fans of secular soul. Titles include "I Had A Talk" by The Friendly Seven, "Why Am I Treated So Bad" by The Southern Echoes, "Walk Through The Valley" by Sensational Saints, "Glory Glory" by Capitalaires, "Unity" by Mighty Imperials, and "My Life Will Be Sweeter" by Trumplettes.

VariousMore Ethiopian Soul & Groove – Ethiopian Urban Modern Music Vol 3 (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Buda/Heavenly Sweetness (France), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $19.99
Mad music that's unlike anything else we can think of – a killer collection of funky grooves from the Ethiopian scene of the 70s – offered up here on a vinyl-only compilation! The set's a great one if you've heard the music of Mulatu, but want to dig a lot deeper – as the cats included on this set are most of his contemporaries from the golden years of Ethiopian music – and most of them work in a similar offbeat, other-worldly sort of style! Rhythms are skittish, horns are hypnotic, and the vocals on some of the tracks have a weird appeal that really transcends the boundaries of language – almost like another instrumental element that fits in wonderfully with the heavy grooves underneath. Titles on the collection are pulled from various volumes of the Ethiopiques series – making this set kind of a distillation of all its greatness. Tracks include "Yebeqagnal" and "Ene Negn Bay Manesh" by Girma Beyene, "Queresh Endewaza" by Samuel Belay, "Ewnetegna Feqer" by Hirut Bequele, "Lomiwen Teqebeletch" by Mahmoud Ahmed, "Gedamay" by Getatchew Mekurya, and "Metche New" by Asselefetch Ashine & Getenesh Kebret.

VariousPoppies – Assorted Finery From The First Psychedelic Age (red vinyl pressing) (2019 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Craft, Late 60s. New Copy ... $18.99 24.99
A very hip trip into the psychedelic underground of the 60s – in a set that goes way deeper than some of the bigger acts you might know from the time! In keeping with some other recent projects on the Craft label, this one pulls together slices of sounds from some relatively unlikely sources – including the soul music powerhouse Stax Records, folk pantheon Vanguard, and oldies label Original Sound – all unusual outlets who managed to create a few mini-masterpieces for the psych scene in the 60s! Titles include "Sorcerella" by Jefferson Lee, "Redeemer" by The Gospel, "Stand In The Shadows" by The Frost, "Say It Isn't So" by The Sot Weed Factor, "Why Come Another Day" by Erik, "oracle" by Chapter VI, "When Will You Happen To Me" by The Human Jungle, "Bright Light Lover" by Circus Maximus, "Open House" by The Serpent Power, "In 1582 We" by The Honey Jug, and "Flower Eyes" by The Pasternak Progress.

VariousSunny Side Up (green vinyl pressing) ... LP
Brownswood (UK), 2019. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
A wonderful overview of the creative scene in Melbourne – a collection that's almost the down-under equivalent of We Out Here – a previous Brownswood sampler of contemporary genius on the London scene! As with that collection, this one brings together the best up-and-coming artists who are really helping to move the scene forward – working in styles that are rooted in jazz, but quickly explode into a whole range of cosmic, soulful styles – music that's very much in keeping with the 21st Century mission that first got Brownswood going over a decade back, and which still makes the label one of our most-trusted sources for turning on to new music from the global underground! Much of this work is instrumental, in modes that effortlessly mix soul, fusion, funk, and spiritual roots – but create something very new and revolutionary in the process. Titles include "Pick Up/Galaxy" by Dufresne, "There Is No Time" by Kuzich, "Powers 2 The People" by Zeitgeist Freedom Energy Exchange, "Nice To See You" by Laneous, "Orbit" by Allysha Joy, "The Wake Up" by Horatio Luna, "Eternal/Internal Peace" by Silent Jay, and "Bleeding Hearts" by Audrey Powne.

VariousTitan – It's All Pop (4LP white vinyl pressing – with bonus tracks) ... LP
Titan/Numero, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 4LP (reissue)... $45.99 59.99
Seminal sounds from the Kansas City scene of the late 70s – a wealth of power pop work from the tiny Titan label – all brought together in one of the most brilliant packages we've ever seen from the Numero Group! Like most Numero releases, there's a great story behind this set – a tale of bounced checks, interstate culture, and a cadre of great groups who would have been huge – had they recorded this music out on the coast! Titan's way more than just a tiny label that managed to put out some killer singles back in the day – it's a pop powerhouse that shows just how much under-discovered genius the American scene can hold – music that really helps break down simple understandings of late 70s rock, especially when presented this well. The 2LP set features 51 tracks – 10 more than the CD version (!) – and a really great oversize 24 page booklet – a great counterpart to Numero's Yellow Pills set – filled with notes on Titan, a complete discography, and a wealth of wonderful photos that really make this unique scene come alive. Titles include "Shark" and "Real Life Saver" by Gary Charlson, "No Way Baby" and "I Wanna Be" by Arlis, "It's Your Heart Tonight" and "Radio Heart" by Secrets, "Please Change Your Mind" and "Baby It's You" by Boys, "Rock N Roll Song" and "Radio City" by Bobby Sky, "The Last Song" by JP McClain & The Intruders, "Cry" and "Didn't Like It Anyway" by Gems, "Coit Tower" and "Drink A Toast" by Millionaire At Midnight, and "I Think About You" by Scott McCarl.

VariousW2NG – 89.9 FM (orange colored vinyl) ... LP
Numero, 1970s. Near Mint- ... $19.99
The Numero Group turn their radio to yet another spot on the dial – this time around posing as a 70s AOR station, but working with their usual flair for rare and unreleased tunes! Given that the musical style is one that you're used to associating with big hits, it's great to hear music like this coming from deeper in the American underground – served up by artists who weren't trying to stand apart from the pack – just try to create their own top-shelf music in a relatively overlooked environment. Titles include "What A Way To Go" by Nanette, "Quick N Slick" by Orphans Of Love, "Wrap Myself Up In Your Arms" by Marshall Titus, "No Other Life Without You" by Greenflow, "Child Of December" by Larry Sanders, "You've Got A Woman" by Lion, "Take This To Heart" by Kettner & Shawe, "Waste Of Time" by Gary Hyde, and "You & Me Me & You" by Phillips.

✨✧ Charles BradleyBlack Velvet (Daptone Authorized Dealer pressing – on splatter colored vinyl) ... LP
Dunham/Daptone, 2018. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The great Charles Bradley left this planet all too soon – and although we've got this final album of music to enjoy, it's only a partial consolation for Bradley's early departure! The set's maybe a bit like some of the albums of Otis Redding material that were issued after his passing – in that there's some cuts here that were singles, mixed with unissued songs that really show Bradley on top of his game – working strongly with the Menehan Street Band at a level that really has us wanting more! Some of these tunes have a sharply righteous vibe – maybe even more edge than before from Charles – which makes the whole thing not just a completely essential addition to his catalog, but also a way of pointing towards a future that might have been. Titles include "Can't Fight The Feeling", "Luv Jones", "I Feel A Change", "Black Velvet", "Fly Little Girl", "Victim Of Love (electric version)", "Slip Away", and "Heart Of Gold". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ CyrkleMinx – Original Soundtrack (colored vinyl pressing – with bonus tracks & DVD) ... LP
Flying Dutchman/Modern Harmonic, 1967. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A very wild soundtrack! The film is about The Minx, a crew of lovelies trained in the art of sensual pleasure and corporate espionage – and the original music for the film, by the rock group The Cyrkle, is about as cool as you'd expect from a theme like that! Some cuts are straight trippy rock numbers – in a mode that's somewhere between the Barbarella soundtrack and work on some of the AIP soundtracks on Tower – but then there's also some cool instrumentals, with a mixture of easy instrumentation and 60s rock effects. Titles include "On The Road", "The Minx", "Nicole", "The Party", "Walter's Riff", and "The Chase". Groovy stuff – with a real sexy Euro sound at the best moments! Mono bonus cuts include "It's A Lovely Game Louise", "The Riggin",j "Baxter's Dangerous Game", and "Something Special". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Billie HolidayLast Recording (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Verve/Wax Time, 1959. Sealed ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Billie Holiday's last recording – and a really beautiful little set that's a perfect cap to her all-too-short career! The album's got a style that's similar to the better-known Lady In Satin album – with backings from Ray Ellis that are a bit more lush than those used during the Verve years, but which also provide some much-needed focus to the music too – a quality that's still strongly jazz-based, but almost seem to refresh Holiday's singing a bit. Make no mistake, Billie's definitely in her later years here – but that also makes for an instantly heartbreaking quality too – a mode that's distinctly Holiday all the way through, with echoes of her hardship throughout most of the tunes. Soloists include Gene Quill on alto, Sweets Edison on trumpet, and Jimmy Cleveland on trombone – and titles include "All The Way", "Don't Worry 'Bout Me", "Sometimes I'm Happy", "Deed I Do", and "All Of You". LP, Vinyl record album
(Recent EU pressing on WaxTime.)
