Laurie AndersonBright Red (180 gram red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Warner/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1994. New Copy (reissue)... $35.99 39.99
A great return to form for Laurie Anderson – a set that's much more in the territory of her early recordings than some of her more song-based tracks – with a great blend of spoken and sung vocals, set amidst wonderful production from Brian Eno – a musical partner who makes the whole thing come across with a really heavenly vibe! We're almost in United States territory here – as Laurie's clearly back to thinking of herself as an artist first, and a songsmith second – although there are some pretty sweet tunes on the record, including one really beautiful duet with Lou Reed, which almost breaks our heart now. Titles include "Beautiful Pea Green Boat", "Love Among The Sailors", "World Without End", "Bright Red", "Muddy River", "Same Time Tomorrow", "Tightrope", "Speechless", and "The Puppet Motel".

Art BlakeyReflections In Blue (180 gram blue vinyl pressing) ... LP
Timeless/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $27.99 32.99
Key proof that Art Blakey was still going strong in the late 70s – continuing his 60s legacy of working with the best young players he could find, in a setting that was bristling with sweet soul jazz energy! This version of The Jazz Messengers includes some tremendous players – including a young Bobby Watson on alto, the great David Schnitter on tenor, James Williams on piano, and Valery Ponomarev on trumpet – all grooving with Art in a style that steps nicely from the soulful Prestige Records years, when Blakey was leading the group with Woody Shaw and Carter Jefferson. Tracks are nearly all originals – loping and grooving with a soulful finish that's really wonderful, showing off equal parts of writing from nearly all corners of the group. The album's awash in soulful joy and love, and titles include "Reflections In Blue", "ETA", "Mishima", "Say Dr J", and "Stretching". LP, Vinyl record album

Blue FeatherCall Me Up/Let's Funk Tonight (180 gram blue vinyl pressing) ... 12-inch
Mercury/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1981. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $24.99
Blue Feather may look a bit hokey on the cover, but they sound really wonderful on the record – a sweet, smooth, funky group who were one of the best on the scene in the early 80s! The vibe here is a lot like the best Brit funk of the period – all these riffing guitars, warm keyboards, and bumping basslines on "Call Me Up" – fitting the catchy lyrics wonderfully, and setting things up for some very cool keyboard sounds too! "Let's Funk Tonight" definitely lives up to the title – a super-groovy tune that runs for almost 10 minutes in length – hook-heavy lyrics upfront, but lots of room for bass solos and all these cool spacey keyboard sounds too – so much so that the tune is more instrumental than vocal! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Tim BuckleyGoodbye & Hello (180 gram yellow vinyl pressing) ... LP
Elektra/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1967. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $35.99 38.99
Easily one of our favorite albums by Tim Buckley – and a record that really opens up with some key jazzy touches! Buckley's still got his roots in folk here, and his vocals are yet to hit the extremes of Starsailor or Lorca – but there's also a new sense of inflection to the way he puts over the lyrics, shaded in by use of vibes, kalimba, harmonium, and harpsichord – the latter two of which are played on the session by Don Randi! Tracks are relatively short, but high in concept – and include the protest song "No Man Can Find The War", plus "Hallucinations", "Phantasmagoria In Two", "Carnival Song", "Pleasant Street", "Morning Glory", and "Goodbye & Hello". LP, Vinyl record album

Das EFXDead Serious (180 gram purple vinyl pressing) ... LP
East West/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1992. New Copy (reissue)... $33.99 38.99
Das Efx are dead serious, and dead on the money with this tremendous debut album – really announcing themselves as one of the powerhouse hip hop forces of the early 90s – able to blend some of the bite of the west coast scene with the sharper rhymes and amazing production of the east! Almost every song on the set is a bonafide classic from back in the day – and the fantastic set list includes "Mic Checka", "Jussumen", "Looseys", "Dum Sums", "They Want EFX", "Straight Out The Sewer", "East Coast", and "Klap Ya Handz". Production by EMPD – which is kind of like icing on the cake! LP, Vinyl record album

Das EfxStraight Up Sewaside (180 gram silver vinyl pressing) ... LP
East West/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1993. New Copy (reissue)... $34.99 38.99
A key part of the too-short legacy of this wonderful duo – part of the top shelf of hip hop up-and-comers in the early 90s – and one of the few who were able to balance a new level of toughness with the smart rhymes and subtle wit that came into the game at the start of the decade! Dray and Skoob keep up the loco syllabic tempo and tongue-tripping rhymes on this one – all set to great production and beats from Solid Scheme – yet things are nicely never too over the top, too – which gives the record a subtle power that's only made it sound better and better as the years move on. Titles include "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

Francois De RoubaixDu Jazz A L'Electro 1965 to 1975 (180 gram yellow vinyl pressing) ... LP
Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy Gatefold ... $30.99 34.99
A decade-spanning collection of work from the amazing Francois De Roubaix – one of the most inventive French talents of his generation, and an artist who was taken from us all too soon! Francois was everything at once – a jazz musician, a soundtrack composer, an electronic music pioneer, and a generally groovy cat who really had a wonderful way of putting unusual sounds together! The package follows the path promised in the title – with some more conventional jazzy material from the mid 60s, moving into work that mixes electronics with cool acoustic instrumentation and other weird sources – presented here on rare advertising, TV, and documentary material that's different than the work in some other compilations of the work of De Roubaix in recent years. Titles include "Fiat Coupe", "Maniatis", "Muratti", "Megeve Mont D'Arbois", "De Paris A L'Everest", "Trois Enfants Au Nepal", "Tradit", "Mobyx", "Le Cubisme Lex Tableux", "L'Avnir Du Futur", "Cointreau", and a few versions each of "Les Survivants" and "Tarif Du Nuit".

Sire/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $35.99 38.99
DMZ's badass self-titled set for Sire from '78 – buzzsaw guitars, driving rhythms, manic vocals and eerie organs – an incredible combination of 60s garage inspiration and ferocious punk-era urgency! DMZ migh have been weird fit at a Sire label that at the time was struggling to get The Ramones and Richard Hell into the mainstream – but boy, is it ever worthy stuff! Includes "Mighty Idy", "Bad Attitude", "Watch For Me Girl", "Cinderella", "Don't Jump Me Mother", "Destroyer", "Out Of Our Tree", "Border Line", "Do Not Enter" and "From Home".

Mikey DreadWorld War III (180 gram yellow vinyl pressing) ... LP
Dread At The Controls/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $27.99 29.99
A legendary bit of apocalyptic reggae from the great Mikey Dread – a set issued on his own label, and at a time when he was very much at the top of his game as both a lead artist and producer! There's a leaner style here than Jamaican work of a few years before – a quality that maybe points the way towards the digital age to come, but which still has all the warmth of homegrown productions from the Kingston scene – where Dread recorded the album at both Channel One and Aquarius! The basslines are wonderful – courtesy of Errol Holt – and Lincoln Scott serves up some great splashy drums that work well with the rhythms and production – on titles that include "Money Dread", "Mental Slavery", "Losers Weepers Finders Keepers", "World War III", "Jah Jah Love", and "Break Down The Walls".

Hans Dulfer & Ritmo NaturalMorning After The Third (180 gram yellow vinyl pressing) ... LP
Catfish/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99 26.99
A wicked little set of tripped-out funky jazz – recorded by Dutch sax legend Hans Dulfer, at a time when he was really expanding his head! The album has Hans on tenor – blowing with a group that includes a young Jan Akkerman on guitar, and lots of Latin percussion – all served up at a level that mixes some of the modern currents of the Dutch jazz scene of the 60s, with some of the headier modes that were opening up all over the continent – yet not in a style that's proggish at all, as Dulfer keeps a nice groove on the record throughout! The approach is a bit like some of the 60s Latin jazz experiments that Klaus Doldinger was doing – but with more guitar and percussion, and a wilder vibe overall. Titles include "Senor Steve", "The Morning After The Third", "Green Mountain", and "Dit Is Het Begin". LP, Vinyl record album

Aretha FranklinUnforgettable – A Tribute To Dinah Washington (180 gram clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
Columbia/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $34.99 36.99
An early moment of vocal strength from Aretha Franklin – a set in which she takes on the music of the recently-departed Dinah Washington, and really transforms it into her own! If you know other Aretha records on Columbia, you'll know that the label did a great job of opening up the jazzier side of her style – served up here with arrangements by Robert Mersey that are definitely different than Franklin's later music for Atlantic, but which also does a great job of bridging the worlds of postwar jazz and 60s soul! Titles include "Evil Gal Blues", "Soulville", "Unforgettable", "Cold Cold Heart", "Drinking Again", and "This Bitter Earth". LP, Vinyl record album

Aretha FranklinYeah – In Person With Her Quartet (180 gram purple vinyl pressing) ... LP
Columbia/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $34.99 36.99
A hip little live date from Aretha Franklin – one that's got a very jazzy feel, and some great small combo backings! The album's almost a distillation of the jazzy styles on Aretha's first albums for Columbia – taken into even leaner territory here, in ways that really set Franklin loose on vocals – making for some of her most forceful moments on record at the time. The quartet features pianist Teddy Harris, who steps back on a few tunes to let Franklin take over the piano – and titles include "Once In A Lifetime", "Love For Sale", "Impossible", "Today I Love Everybody", and "Without The One You Love".

Golden EarringEight Miles High (180 gram red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Polydor/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99 31.99
A pretty fierce and fantastic album from Golden Earring – one that's very different than you might think if you only know the group from their later hits on radio! The sound here is completely full-on – heavy drums, rumbling bass, and stunning guitar work from George Kooymans – touched with some jazzier elements at times on flute and organ, which links the record a bit to that moment when the UK scene had turned blues inspirations to prog explorations – yet served up by Golden Earring with a much more hard rock approach throughout! Titles include a side-long workout on "Eight Miles High", which takes up all of side two – plus "One Huge Road", "Everyday's Torture", "Landing", and "Song Of A Devil's Servant".

Harold Y Su BandaEvolucion (180 gram green vinyl pressing) ... LP
Columbia/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1975. New Copy ... $39.99 41.99
A wicked bit of funky Latin from the Colombian scene of the 70s – and a record that mixes together all different styles at once – in a mode that's maybe a lot more like some of the hip samba soul and funky productions on the Emi/Odeon label in early 70s Brazil, than some of the more local work on Discos Fuentes! Arrangements are large and wonderful – put together by Harold with a mix of raw percussion, riffing guitars, sweet keyboards, and soring horns – all as groovy as groovy can be, and topped with vocals that are a mix of soulful styles and freer modes – backed by lovely female singers at some key moments too! Titles include "Yany Yany", "Evolucion", "Bajo El Sol", "Latino", "Busque El Gato", and "Ansias De Vivir". LP, Vinyl record album

Screamin Jay HawkinsAt Home With Screamin' Jay Hawkins (180 gram red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Epic/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1956. New Copy (reissue)... $37.99 38.99
This is the real deal for Screamin Jay Hawkins – a full album of his first early work for the Okeh label in the mid 50s, stuff that was recorded long before his too-gimmicky records for mainstream audiences! The sound here is hard and heavy – and pretty darn spooky too – best summed up by Hawkins' classic "I Put a Spell On You", which sets the tone here – but followed up beautifully by a batch of similar material that brings a new level of screamin' to 50s R&B! Titles include "Give Me My Boots & Saddle", "Hong Kong", "If You Are But A Dream", "You Made Me Love You", "Orange Colored Sky", "Temptation", and "I Love Paris" – and Jay's versions of the standards are almost as great as his original material!

Billy HigginsSoldier (180 gram green vinyl pressing) ... LP
Timeless/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1979. New Copy ... $26.99 29.99
A heck of a great little album from drummer Billy Higgins – one of his few standout efforts as a leader, after years and years of impeccable work as a player on some of our favorite records! The set's got a simple, almost innocuous approach – with Higgins leading a quartet that features Cedar Walton on piano, Walter Booker on bass, and Monty Waters on alto sax. But from the very first note, the album bristles with energy and excitement – in a mode that recalls the Clifford Jordan recordings that also featured Higgins from the mid 70s – sharing a similar sense of soulful and joyous expression. Waters is really great, with a really biting, honest tone – and singer Roberta Davis joins the group on an excellent reading of Waters' composition "Sugar & Spice". Other tracks include Walton's nice "Midnite Waltz", and great versions of Horace Silver's "Peace" and Sonny Rollins' "Sonnymoon For Two". LP, Vinyl record album

A&M/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1974. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $27.99 29.99
A set of extended tracks from French powerhouse Magma, but one that burns with intensity throughout – thanks not just to the killer drum work of group members Christian Vander on drums and Jannink Top on bass (with both on keyboards as well) – but also to the presence of legendary guitarist Brian Godding, whose sounds on the album really set the whole thing on fire! Magma already had a great keyboard and drum groove going on with previous records – but the presence of Godding here really sends things over the top – as, again, the group show that their instrumentation can deliver far more than their vocals – on extended titles that include "Kohntarkosz", "Ork Alarm", and "Coltrane Sundia".

MagmaWurdah Itah (180 gram purple vinyl pressing) ... LP
Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1974. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $27.99 29.99
Maybe one of the strangest albums ever recorded by Magma – a set that's right in the middle of their classic prog run in the 70s, but which has a slightly different vibe! Drummer/keyboardist Christian Vander is maybe even more essential here than ever – but instead of long jams, the tracks are shorter, and often feature vocals from singers Stella Vander and Klaus Blasquiz – mixed with layered drums, piano, Rhodes, and percussion from Christian, plus some added bass work too – almost haunting and chant-like at times, although still pretty rocking overall! The work was originally created for a soundtrack – hence the shorter songs – but it more than stands up on its own – with titles that include "Fur Di Hel Kobaia", "Wainsaht", "Ek Sun Da Zess", "Sehnnteht Dros Wurdah Sums", "Maneh Fur Da Zess", and "Malawelekaahm".

Drummer Eddie Marshall never cut many albums as a leader, but we'll always love him for this one – a sublime San Francisco 70s session that features tremendous vibes from the great Bobby Hutcherson! But actually, the whole group's great – and also includes George Cables on piano, James Leary on bass, and Manny Boyd on tenor and soprano sax – who works alongside Hutcherson's vibes with some of the same soulful currents as Harold Land from earlier years! The tunes are well-paced – mostly by Marshall, with a slight undercurrent of spirituality – and a lyrical beauty that almost has Bobby in "Little B's Poem" territory at times. Titles include "The Stroll", "The High Priestess Of Gone", "Andree", and "But I Refuse To Come Down". LP, Vinyl record album

Tight funky 80s fusion from the team of Jaco Pastorius on bass and Brian Melvin drums and drum programs – both working in a very electric mode that fits the spirit of the time! Pastorius gets in plenty of great lines – both lead and solo – and his work here is kind of an update of the fusion modes he famously explored with Weather Report in the 70s, tuned towards technologies of the next decade, and mixed with contributions from Rick Smith on saxes, Jon Davis on keyboards, and Paul Mousavi on guitar! Titles include "Jazz Street", "No Slack", "Miles Mode", "May Day", "Drums Of The Yadzarah", and "Wedding Waltz". LP, Vinyl record album

Toots ThielemansToots Thielemans European Quartet Live (180 gram purple vinyl pressing) (2022 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), Late 2000s. New Copy ... $30.99
Toots Thielemans has done countless studio sessions over the years – both under his name, and working with a variety of groups and arrangers – but for some reason, we find his live material to maybe be some of his most powerful – a clear, careful presentation of the honest heart that lies in Thielemans' solos, which seem to shine even more in a spontaneous setting! This set was done relatively late in Toots' career, but has the harmonica legend sounding fantastic – easily hitting those brilliant ballad modes he does so well, but also surprising our ears with a few more powerful numbers too – in the company of Karel Boehlee on piano, Hein Van De Geyn on bass, and Hans Van Oosterhout on drums. Titles include "Circle Of Smile", "Comecar De Novo", "Summertime", "For My Lady", "Ne Me Quitte Pas", "Bluesette", and "Theme From Midnight Cowboy" – which sounds especially nice in Toots' hands!

A record with a striking title – and a set that really marked the full promise of Linval Thompson in the 70s – a dubby classic that's every bit as strong on the vocal side of Thompson's skills, as it is the production side! The album was recorded at Tubby's with the Revolutionaries band and an uncredited Junjo Lawes (who would later go on to cut some of the best dub albums ever, with Scientist) – and the vocals have this great style of cresting between sweeter modes and more biting modes – particularly when wrapped around the social themes that always made Thompson stand out. Titles include "I Love Marijuana", "Don't Push Your Brother", "Dread Are the Controller", "The Children of the Ghetto", "Not Follow Fashion", and "Jamaican Colley Version". LP, Vinyl record album

A massive Fender Rhodes set from early 70s Belgium – the kind of set that never shows up on this side of the Atlantic, and which is pretty darn rare in its home territory too! Keyboardist Jack Van Poll has a wonderful sense of space on this set – a way of letting the tunes build simply and gracefully – often with a slow-growing groove that lets the Rhodes roll along wonderfully – never too slow, though, and always with a sweet funky undercurrent! And while we'd never heard of Jack before this set, he's got a great sense of style and imagination on his solos – very open, but always with a soulful undercurrent. The rest of the trio includes Mary Hehuat on Fender bass and Ruud Pronk on drums – and titles include "Marriedyet", "Blue Tait", "A Box For Leslie", "Sweet Georgie Fame", "Passage To Pferov", and "Objizdka".

The title translates as "naked over the fence" – and that's definitely where these guys are going, thanks to a funky 70s soundtrack from Dutch jazzman Ruud Bos! The music is prime Euro soundtrack funk at its best – lots of sweet keyboards, jazzy guitar riffs, and all these larger orchestrations that give some of the best tracks an MPS-like vibe – which also includes a few spots of wordless vocals, which sound really great next to the grooves! Sylvia Kristel sings the one vocal track, "Hey A Letter Came Today" – and other tracks include "Model Session", "Rick", "Naked Plus", "Penny & Rick", "The Kidnapping", "On The Roof", "Get It Now", and "Happy End".

Warner/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1980. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The classic first album by this legendary funky combo – a group who not only went onto change the sound of funk in the 80s, but also went onto have a huge impact on generations of hip hop as well! The album burns from the very first note – the wicked snapping funk of "More Bounce To The Ounce" – a tune that became the blueprint for a generation, and still sounds way better than the millions of copycat attempts that came out over the years! The record follows with some equally wicked bass/keyboard cuts – often with plenty of electro production touches too – thanks to sweeeet work in the studio from Bootsy Collins and Roger Troutman. Bootsy's presence is key, too – as the set kind of strips down the ensemble P-Funk vibe of the generation before – going for a lean, clean groove that's held up beautifully over the years! In addition to "More Bounce To The Ounce", the record also features the mellow steppers cut "Be Alright", which has a wonderful hook, and a great compressed modern soul sound – and other tracks include "Funky Bounce", "Freedom", and "Brand New Pplayer".

A very weird, but very beautiful album by the Isleys – one in which they move into a folksy rock groove, and play acoustic guitars in long spiraling soulful versions of some of their favorite rock hits! The sound's a bit like Terry Callier or Bill Withers, but it's also still got that sexy Isley groove to it – and although the cuts aren't all out funky, there's definitely a lot of funk in the way that they're set up! We love the complexity of the Isleys at this point – really willing to take a chance like this, with results that come out beautifully.

One of the biggest-selling albums ever on the Blue Note label – even though the music here started out in the realm of copyright infringement! Back in the early 90s, the British duo used a big Herbie Hancock sample for an underground club cut – and when Blue Note heard about the track, not only did they not challenge them, they signed them to the label, encouraged them to dig deep into the back catalog – and began a trend that started a huge amount of jazz sample-based records for decades to come! If you know Blue Note, you'll hear plenty of familiar moments here – recast as dance cuts on titles that include the hit "Cantaloop", built up from Herbie Hancock's "Cantaloupe Island" – plus "I Got It Goin On", "Different Rhythms", "Eleven Long Years", "Lazy Day", "Cruisin", and "I Go To Work".

There's less of the deep soul of Franklin's Atlantic recordings, but that's more than compensated for a great jazzy vibe – served up courtesy of the piano of Ray Bryant, whose group here really makes the album cook! And it's not just Ray on piano – the set also features Al Sears on tenor and Quentin Jackson on trombone – and Bryant steps aside to let Aretha play some piano too. Tracks include "Won't Be Long", "Love is The Only Thing", "Sweet Lover", "All Night Long", "Who Needs You", "Today I Sing The Blues", and "Maybe I'm A Fool". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ennio MorriconeCosa Avete Fatto A Solange? (180 gram yellow vinyl pressing) ... LP
Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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".

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

Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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".

The third album from Shocking Blue, in case you couldn't guess from the title – and a set that seems to have the group increasing their intensity at just about every level in their sound! The tunes are deeper and less pop-oriented than before – with stronger guitars, and increasingly great vocals from Marisks Veres – one of the more unique singers of her generation, and already moving far past the style she used on "Venus", which was her key global moment of exposure from the group's first album. Titles include "Simon Lee & The Gang", "Shocking You", "Velvet Heaven", "Love Sweet Love", "I Saw Your Face", "Don't You See", "Bird Of Paradise", and "Moonlight Night". Also includes six bonus tracks – "Roll Engine Roll", "Waterloo", "Never Marry A Railroad Man", "Blossom Lady", "Is This A Dream", and "Poor Boy (long version)". LP, Vinyl record album

The continuing genius of the West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band – a group who are certainly as experimental as their name would imply, but who can also come across with some warmer Sunshine Pop touches too! And it's that which makes the group so wonderful – the blend of freak and sweet, of fuzz and fun – all given a special shape in the studio through the genius of producer Jimmy Bowen, whose work here with Bob Markley is superb – and very much open to the best freedoms that Warner was offering its creative talents at the time! The song titles are equally superb – and titles include "A Child's Guide To Good & Evil", "Ritual #1", "Anniversary of World War III", "Eighteen Is Over The Hill", "As Kind As Summer", and "Our Drummer Always Plays In the Nude".

Curtom/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), Early 70s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $37.99 38.99
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

A huge moment for Blackalicious – a group who'd been gaining plenty of cred on the underground, and who reached out to a much bigger set of ears with this major label debut! The whole thing's top-shelf through and through – superb production from Chief Xcel next to the words from Gift of Gab and Chief Excel – alongside a host of guests including Quannum mainmasts Lyrics Born, Lateef, and Joyo – as well as Dilated People's Raka and Babu, Jurassic 5's Cut Chemist and Chali 2na – and even work from Gil Scott-Heron and Ben Harper too! Clearly, someone had enough faith in the group to give them the money to realize their dream – and that faith definitely pays off here – on titles that include the classic single "Make You Feel That Way" – plus "Blazing Arrow", "4000 Miles", "Paragraph President", "First In Flight", "Purest Love", "Sky Is Falling", "It's Going Down", "Release (parts 1, 2, & 3)", and "Chemical Calisthenics".

Polydor/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1974. New Copy ... $15.99 17.99
A fantastic 70s album from James Brown – one of those sets in which he refines and tightens up the longform funk he'd created with the JBs on double-length sets like Payback and Hell – then finds a way to make the same sort of righteous power hit strongly on shorter songs too! Everything is still very firmly in place here – that super-dope sense of rhythm, impeccable instrumentation, and vocal timing from James that really keeps the whole thing moving in all the right ways. Case in point is the sublime "Funky President" – a super-dope track that mixes politics and funk, and which is one of our favorite James Brown tracks from the 70s – served up here alongside other cuts include "All For One", "Check Your Body", "Reality", and "Further Up The Road".

Miles DavisBlack Beauty – Miles Davis At Fillmore West (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Sony/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1970. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $43.99 46.99
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

Miles Davis' first-ever performance in Japan – a really unique concert that featured the quintet with Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, and Tony Williams – augmented by a young Sam Rivers on tenor! The presence of Rivers really gives the set an edge – and although Miles is holding Sam a bit more in check than on some of his "new thing" albums from the time, there's an overall quality here that's different than the other Davis quintet albums of the time. The set was one of a number of important Miles Davis live sessions from the period – including albums from Berlin, Antibes, and Chicago – and titles include "If I Were A Bell", "My Funny Valentine", "So What", "Walkin'" and "All Of You".

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. Includes the classic title track, "Rude Boy Train" and "Rudy Got Soul", "You've Got Your Troubles", "Keep A Cool Head", "Mother Long Tongue", "Personal Possession", "Unity" and more.

A beautiful jazzy score by Duke Ellington – and a fitting companion to this classic Otto Preminger film! The record captures Ellington at a perfect moment – right during his Indigos period of increased sophistication, when his band was at an all-time level of perfection – and really shaking free of the too-familiar modes of the past. Ellington's music has a wonderful range of feeling here – even more so than usual, given the shifting scenes of the film – and the players are an all star lineup that includes Clark Terry on trumpet, Paul Gonsalves on tenor, Johnny Hodges on alto, and Jimmy Hamilton on clarinet. Titles include "Upper & Outest", "Almost Cried", "Sunswept Sunday", "Happy Anatomy", "Flirtibird", and "Low Key Lightly". LP, Vinyl record album

Reggae Power may have the name of the growing Jamaican genre in its title, but the set's still heavy on the rocksteady and ska rhythms that first provided fire for the sharp vocals of The Ethiopians – the trio's great way of trading vocals back and forth, at a level that seems perfectly suited for the grooves! There's certainly some harmonies in the mix, but the approach here really shows the different way that some of the Jamaican groups were setting themselves apart at the time – not just through the rhythms, but in the way their vocals interacted with the music. Titles include "What A Fire", "Everything Crash", "Women Capture Man", "One Dollar Of Soul", "Gun Man", and "Feel The Spirit". LP, Vinyl record album

Motown/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99 29.99
A seminal step forward for this legendary group – easily one of the greatest albums they ever cut! With ABC, the Jacksons are expanding their sound with the club-oriented grooves of the time – using Holland, Dozier, and Holland on many cuts, trying for a similar soaring groove as some of the trio's work on their own Invictus label. The move's actually a great one – as the maturing group has a strong adult harmony sound, the one that they would lean on more heavily during their years as The Jacksons, and which calls for much smoother arrangements than before. The record's got a surprisingly righteous, joyous sort of sound – and titles include "The Love You Save", "ABC", "One More Chance", "Never Had A Dream Come True", "I'll Bet You", "I Found That Girl", "La-La Means I Love You", "2-4-6-8", and "The You Folks".

One of the greatest mainstream 70s efforts from Lee Scratch Perry – a wonderful collaboration with Jah Lion – who serves up rhymes of knowledge and wisdom over some dubby genius from Scratch himself! The album skews towards the roots side of the spectrum, but has a looser, more open vibe too – as Jah Lion (aka Jah Lloyd) really lets his words space out amidst the fantastic production – really waiting his time for the rhythms to flow, then letting his vocals come in right on the money! The whole thing is great – virtually a blueprint for the entire On-U Sound label – with titles that include "Wisdom", "Dread In A Jamdong", "Flashing Whip", "Black Lion", "Fat Man", "Black Lion", "Little Sally Dater", "Hay Fever", and "Colombia Colly".

Trojan/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99 30.99
Stunning early work from one of our favorite reggae groups ever – the mighty Toots & The Maytals, a key link between the soul styles of the Jamaican scene of the 60s, and the righteous years to come! There's a groove to the Maytals music that nobody else seems to get this right – or this tight – a fantastic criss-crossing of rhythms that's often nicely stripped-down, and which seems to set fire to the vocal interplay between Toots and the rest of the group – in a way that's as vocally explosive as the instrumentation at the core! Sure, these guys can harmonize as well as the rest of their contemporaries – but they've also got an even greater talent for trading back and forth, which seems to make every one of their tunes an instant groove. Titles include "Pee Pee Cluck Cluck", "Loving Spirit", "Dr Lester", "Gola Silver", "Koo Koo", "Revival Reggae", "Thy Kingdom Come", "One Eyed Enos", "A Time To Love", "9 O'Clock", "Know Me Good", "Got To Feel", "Feel So Good", and "Give Peace A Chance".

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.

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!

Groundbreaking 70s work from Lee Scratch Perry – served up here with both work from The Upsetters, and a long list of "friends" – different singers who take the lead on some of the productions, which are then presented back to back with dub versions of the tracks that overflow with great contributions from a top-shelf lineup of musicians! Players on the cuts include Willie Lindo and Ernest Ranglin on guitars, Winston Wright on organ, Vin Gordon on trombone, and Richard Dirty Harry Hall on tenor – but the real talent here is clearly that of Perry, who's able to move between soulful vocal leads and some deeper, darker Black Ark sounds on the rhythms. Titles include "Mr Money Man" by Danny Hensworth, "Brother Noah" by The Shadows, "Traveling" by Debra Keese, "Ethiopian Land" by Peter & Paul Lewis, "Land Of Love" by Sons Of Light, "Peace & Love" by Shaumark & Robinson, "Freedom Street" by Eric Donaldson, "My Little Sandra" by Leo Graham, "Long Long Time" by Winston Heywood, "White Belly Rat" by Lee Perry, "A Wah Dat" by Junior Dread, and "Feelings" by Sharon Isaacs – and the set features dub versions of every cut by The Upsetters too!

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".

A legendary pairing of two key 60s pop talents – the soulful sounds of Ike & Tina Turner, and the soaring production styles of Phil Spector! The album's quite different than some of the grittier Turner projects of the time – lots of full orchestrations and strings, mixed with the rougher rhythms you'd usually hear from Ike – a blend that's surprisingly great, and helps push Tina's vocals into wonderfully mature territory – a bit like the mix of deep soul and class that you'd get from Etta James on mid-60s Chess Records! The album's a feather in the cap of both Spector and Turner – and titles include "River Deep Mountain High", "I Idolize You", "A Love Like Yours", "Such A Fool For You", "I'll Never Need More Than This", "A Fool In Love", and "Hold On Baby".

Winston Matthews and Lloyd McDonald trade lead vocals, and the whole group harmonizes wonderfully – updating an older rocksteady approach to soul with the new energy of the roots generation – given a vibe that's laidback, but very well-crafted – thanks to work from a top-shelf lineup of players that includes Vin Gordon and Rico on trombones, Cedric Brooks on alto, Headley Bennett on tenor, Ansel Collins on organ, and Sly & Robbie on rhythm.

James Brown really opens up on this early 70s classic – really showing the world the amazing groove he was crafting with his band – who were let loose to jam in the studio, spinning out some really long grooves – which were then cut down to make this sweet little record! The title cut was a big single for James at the time, but it's presented here in its full 9 minute version – a monstrous jam that's equal to anything on the Payback record, or the JBs albums too – and the album also includes the long two-part take of "Escapism", and another funky gem – "Blues & Pants", which snaps along for a solid 9 minutes too! The album's filled with heavy funk, and the longer tracks allow for plenty of instrumental flourishes from Fred, Maceo, and the other JBs – and honestly, the record is more of a People Records session than a Polydor record from James. Even more amazing – this CD reissue features the full 19 minute version of "Hot Pants" – the unedited jam from the session! CD

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".

Gleeson makes things smooth and spacey, but never slick – really layering the sound at a level that's somewhere in the Mizell family territory, but with a bit of a different vibe. Coke's percussion is wonderful – and the set features vocals from Errol Knowles, plus backing from The Waters, and guest instrumentation from both Joe Henderson on tenor and Gabor Szabo on guitar.

A seminal jazz funk session of the 70s – Herbie Hancock's legendary meeting with The Headhunters, and a killer batch of tunes that really gave the combo their name! Herbie's playing a wide range of keys here – including Fender Rhodes, clavinet, and Arp – but almost even better is the work from the rest of the group – including Bennie Maupin on soprano and tenor sax, Paul Jackson on bass, Harvey Mason on drums, and Bill Summers on percussion! The earthier elements of the rhythm players really keep Herbie on track – bringing him back to the planet from previous trips into space, and helping him hit an all-solid, all-righteous funky groove! Titles include a great remake of "Watermelon Man", the classic original recording of "Chameleon", and the cuts "Vein Melter" and "Sly" – all nice and long! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Pharoah SandersAfrica (180 gram pressing – with bonus tracks) ... LP
Timeless/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1987. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A brilliant 80s set from Pharoah Sanders – a record that has him a much more understated setting than some of his other albums from the time – but one that's maybe even more soulful and searching overall! The great one plays blistering tenor right from the start – in a quartet with John Hicks on piano, Curtis Lundy on bass, and Idris Muhammad on drums – all players who have this way of doing a lot with a little, especially in the rhythm department – where they seem to give Sanders some of his strongest sense of groove since the key albums for Theresa. Muhammad's got this tight sense of timekeeping, but with a looseness that we love – and Lundy's warm soulful bass does more than enough to give the set a sound bottom – and Hicks' free lyrical piano works nicely with Sanders' spiritual horn. Titles include a remake of "You've Got To Have Freedom", plus "Naima", "Origin", "Speak Low", "After The Morning", and "Africa". Also features the tracks "Duo" and "Heart To Heart" – not on the original vinyl release! LP, Vinyl record album

Trojan/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1973. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A killer double-length set of work from Desmond Dekker – one that's put together by Trojan Records to feature all the lesser-known and unreleased tracks that Desmond recorded during the years of his initial hits! As such, the album's a treasure trove of work that goes way past the oft-issued singles that Desmond cut in the late 60s and early 70s – tracks that are wonderful, and some of our favorites – but which are greatly expanded here! Dekker's voice is fantastic – as always – one of the sweetest soul sounds in Jamaican music – and the grooves are a mix of rocksteady and new reggae modes that were bubbling forth at the time. Titles include "Look What They're Doing To Me", "Life Of Opportunity", "Little Darling", "Warlock", "Licking Stick", "Hippopotamus", "Go & Tell My People", "Trample", "What Will You Gain", "My Reward", "Mother Nature", and "Life Hope & Faith".

Mercury/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1997. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The crucial second album from Diamond – issued quite a few years after his debut, a stretch of time that really helped the MC/producer elevate to the level of hip hop royalty! Diamond was always very generous with his talents for others, but really knocks it out of the park when in the spotlight himself – the kind of top shelf New York material that marked the best efforts of the DITC crew! And although others on the scene were catching up a bit to Diamond by this point, he's still very much in the lead on cuts like "MC Iz My Ambition", "5 Fingas of Death", "This One", "No Wondah (The Projects)", "The Hiatus", "Painz & Strife", "JD's Revenge". Guests include Sadat X, Lord Finesse, Big L, Fat Joe, Pete Rock, Phife, and Busta Rhymes – and other titles include "Never", "Gather Round", "KT", "On Stage", "Can't Keep My Grands To Myself", and "Cream N Sunshine".

Excellent solo material from Jermaine Jackson – maybe the second greatest solo star from the Jackson 5 next to his brother Michael! Jermaine's got a mature confidence here that really makes his solo presence stand out from his group material – set up wonderfully in some of the best evolving modes that Motown was going through at the time – a few echoes of earlier material, but also the newer styles that worked so well for Marvin Gaye. Arrangements are by The Corporation, James Carmichael, and others – and titles include "Come Into My Life", "Does Your Mama Know About Me", "Sitting On The Edge Of My Mind", "You're In Good Hands", and "A Million To One".

A real moment of righteous power from Lee Scratch Perry – as you might expect from the image on the cover – clearly indicating a strong sense of pride and identity that also tracks with the 70s shift in Jamaican music too! Lee's the producer here, but also extends full creative control throughout – which makes the album's mix of vocal and instrumental tracks feel much more like some of the unified albums from the Black Ark era, than previous Trojan packages which usually just culled together previous singles. The album's got lots of instrumentals billed to The Upsetters – including "Move Me", "Surplus"," Go Slow", "Not Guilty", "Long Sentence", and "Bad Luck" – and other titles include "Do Your Thing" by Dave Barker, "Well Dread (version 3)" by Addis Ababa Children, "Isn't It Wrong" by The Hurricanes, and "Place Called Africa (version 3)" by Winston Prince.

EMI/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A very cool little album from Placebo – arguably the group's most soulful session ever, and one that draws heavily from American funky jazz at the start of the 70s! 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

One of the first albums from Tower Of Power – and one of the funkiest, too – a set that really has the group working in a loose, spontaneous mode that's totally great – steeped in all the best elements of southern soul, but forged with a new sort of energy in the Bay Area scene at the start of the 70s! The tracks are nice and long, but never overly jamming – and the album's the start of a great run of classics from the group, and is still one of our favorites from them over the years. Titles include "Back On The Streets Again", "Sparkling In The Sand", "The Skunk, The Goose, & The Fly", and "Social Lubrication". LP, Vinyl record album

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 new chapter in dub from Aswad – a set that points the way towards so many shifts that would take place in the music over the next few years – including the use of digital elements, and the rise of On-U Sound as well – all coming from crucial sounds created here on an Island Records classic! 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

Wonderfully righteous work from trumpeter Theo Croker – and a set that's really got the sort of majesty you might expect from the cover! Theo's never been a straight jazz artist on other records – but here, he really ups his game on the cosmic soul front – mixing in guest vocals and instrumental elements with some soul-drenched arrangements that often have a nicely crisp crackle on the rhythms! Croker's trumpet is only part of the album's strength here – as the set also features work from Gary Bartz on alto, plus vocals from Kassa Overall, Iman Omari, Wyclef Jean, and others – on titles that include "Every Part Of Me", "Soul Call Vibrate", "No More Maybe", "Happy Feet", "Where Will You Go", "Anthem", and "Imperishable Star".

The style is very different than the late 70s Jacksons material on Philly International – with some great elements that really expand past the three hits that are included – into deeper soul modes that show the group always willing to take on new challenges. Titles include "One Day I'll Marry You", "Oh I've Been Blessed", "Love's Gone Bad", "I Ain't Gonna Eat My Heart Out Anymore", "Just Because I Love You", and "I Was Made To Love Her". CD

✨✧ 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.

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".

The lineup is classic – Don Drummond on trombone, Tommy McCook and Roland Alfonso on saxes, and a bit of vocal help from Justin Hinds & The Dominoes – all working together in a seamless blend that forever set a standard for this late 60s generation! The titles include "Yard Broom", "Carry-Go-Bring-Come", "Twelve Minutes To Go", "Magic", "Strolling In", "Dan-De-Lion", "Apanga", "Eastern Standard Time", "Musical Store Room", and "River Bank" – plus the cut "Rough & Tough" with Stranger Cole and "When You Call My Name" with Stranger & Patsy.

A beautiful orchestral work from Philip Glass – a set that features the long piece "Itaipu", and the shorter "The Canyon" – both handled with a mix of instrumentation and voices that really gives the music a sense of majesty! 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.

Production is nice and spare – and provides the perfect raw framework for the bleak storytelling – really pulling you in to the lyrics, and beautifully balancing things so that the record neither glamorizes its topics, nor gets to heavy either. The set features guest appearances by Q-Tip, Ghostface, Nas, Raekwon, and Big Noyd – and there's not a moment of filler at all, on titles that include "Shook Ones Part II", "Temperature's Rising", "Drink Away The Pain", "Survival Of The Fittest", "Trife Live", "Eye For An Eye", and lots more.

Beautiful sounds from one of the coolest Italian composers of all time – one of our go-to favorites for both soundtrack and sound library material! This set has Alessandro Alessandroni hitting some sweet 70s modes – funky at times, slinky and sexy at others – all with this fantastic ear for sound and space, with a quality level that really sets him apart – and which makes this totally obscure gem every bit as great as some of the key Italian cinematic classics from the period! Imagine – you're working in the very solitary space of a sound library, knowing that you're going to make a record that will never be for sale in the record racks – yet you completely bring your a-game to the proceedings. That's what makes Alessandroni such a giant – and we're sure you'll agree once you hear this music! The set features some great harmonica bits from Gianfranco Di Lelio, plus cool keyboards, guitar, and titles that include "My Sitar", "Seven Steps", "A Day In The Sun", "Oceano", "Everest", "Beach Party", "Summer Breeze", "Desert Inn", and "Love On The Sand".

The style is definitely reggae, but as you'd guess from the Nina Simone cover in the title track, Bob Andy and Marcia Griffiths are also reaching out for something bigger, too – really bringing a level of sophistication to their music that moves beyond the usual – an evolution past rocksteady, but also not in the same direction as other reggae acts of the time. Harry J produced, and gets an international flavor just right for the music – and titles include "Young Gifted & Black", "Private Number", "It's A Rocking Good Way", "We've Got To Get Ourselves Together", "United We Stand", "Ain't Nothing Like The Real Thing", "Put A Little Love In Your Heart", and "Keep The Customer Satisfied".

The album was recorded live, and features a great pairing of electronic and acoustic elements – and is presented here with notes from Rob Mazurek, whose own music can hit similar territory at times – making him the perfect person to direct our approach to the proceedings! However, there's also a difference here – some nicely organic moments at times, when the electronics almost take on qualities of the other instruments – mixed with other passages that have them in starker contrast. Titles include "Fossil Record", "Oryx", "Lethal Curve", and "Seclusion Self". LP, Vinyl record album

Lantern Editions (Italy), 1973. New Copy ... $29.99 34.99
A beautiful tribute to the legendary British pianist Mike Taylor – recorded at the equally legendary Landsdowne studios in the early 70s, with contributions from some of Taylor's key contemporaries – and released here for the first time ever! Taylor was a rising star in the London scene of the 60s, but sadly passed away right at the end of the decade – leaving a great sense of loss and unfulfilled promise – part of which is addressed by the work on the set. All tracks are original compositions by Taylor – music penned back in the 60s, and given a more ambitious performance here by a large ensemble directed by Neil Ardley – and featuring Henry Lowther and Ian Carr on trumpets, Barbara Thompson and Ray Warleigh on reeds, Peter Lemer on piano and electric piano, Alan Branscombe on vibes, and Norma Winstone on vocals. There's strands here of some of the other high-concept large ensemble work from the UK in the same generation – echoes of Mike Westbrook or Mike Gibbs – but the style's also more personal too, with more of the spirit of some of Taylor's own small group recordings from his all-too-short career. Titles include "Summer Sounds Summer Sights", "Half Blue/Pendulum", "I See You", "Song Of Love", "Folk Dance No 2", "Jumping Off The Sun", "Black & White Raga", and "Timewind".

An essential record from Gary Bartz – one of two albums he cut with Andy Bey, and the killer group he was calling his NTU Troup! Andy's vocals are incredible – light years ahead of anything he did with his sisters, and similar to those he laid down on his own solo album for Atlantic, and on Blue Note sides with Horace Silver – a righteous mix of jazz and soul, with a burning intensity that makes the political themes of the tracks come out strongly. The album includes one of Andy's all time classics – the original 7 minute version of "Celestial Blues", plus the fantastically grooving "Uhuru Sasa" – as well as the cuts "The Planets", and "Blue (A Folk Tale)". And Gary Bartz is pretty great too – dropping in these angular reed lines that really give the record an edge, and which sound totally great next to Bey's vocals! LP, Vinyl record album

The record has Joe really bursting out after his seminal Latin Soul work of the late 60s – blending Latin rhythms and American soul into a whole new style of music – one that Joe called "Salsoul", because of it's mixture of salsa and soul! The blend is fantastic, a real milestone in the NuYorican scene – and handled perfectly by Joe on every cut! There's some massive Latin funk on here, including the tracks "Latin Strut" and "Aftershower Funk", plus some straighter Latin jazz, like "Sunny Gets Blue Mambo", and a great Latin Soul cut with English vocals called "Johnny".

Ardent/Craft, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $31.99 32.99 On December 9, 2022
The amazing first album from Big Star – a set that came out of nowhere, made hardly a ripple on the charts, yet went onto crash in big waves of sound for generations to come! The style here is unlike thing else before – hardly what you'd expect from the group's Memphis roots or Alex Chilton's previous performances – yet the group's music has become a generation-defining sound in the way it blends southern inflections with harder rock influences, and a lean, gritty quality that's arguably in a late 70s space between punk and power pop. Every element is wonderful – guitars that are powerful, but never indulgent – vocals that are moving, but never overly emotive – and a balance between sensitive and searing moments that even The Replacements could never hope to match. A landmark all the way through – with tracks that include "Feel", "Ballad Of El Goodo", "In The Street", "The India Song", "When My Baby's Beside Me", "Give Me Another Chance", "Don't Lie To Me", "Thirteen", "Watch The Sunrise", and "Try Again".

Stax/Real Gone, Mid 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $37.99 39.99
A treasure trove of tight, organ-driven grooves from Booker T & The MGs – a quartet who really helped transform the sound of soul music in the 60s – even if they never sang on any of their records! The combo instrumental record had existed before Booker and the group, but working at Stax Records during the glory days of the Memphis soul scene, The MGs were able to come up with a whole new approach – tight, focused, and very sharp – not entirely funky, but not far off either – usually just with a scratchy guitar line to tighten up the rhythm, and Booker's fantastic lines on the organ to set up the tune! The group recorded a number of classic albums for Stax, but they maybe shone most on their singles – especially the b-sides, which were where they really had fun. (And trivia – "Green Onions", their biggest hit, was originally a b-side!) The set features the first run of their Stax singles – 29 tracks in all, with lots of unusual instrumentals next to the hits – titles that include "My Sweet Potato", "Booker Loo", "Aw Mercy", "Home Grown", "Big Train", "Chinese Checkers", "MG Party", "Soul Dressing", "Tic Tac Toe", "Mo Onions", "Behave Yourself", "Slim Jenkins Place", "Winter Wonderland", "Hip Hug Her", "Red Beans & Rice", "Can't Be Still", "Terrible Thing", "Outrage", "Boot Leg", "Fannie Mae", "Summertime", "Winter Snow", and of course, "Green Onions".

A pivotal album from the early 90s – one that not only furthered the rebirth of live funk instrumentation at a time when ditigal elements dominated the scene – but also really opened up that mode to a whole new generation of hip hop as well! At a time when the music was all about the samples and beats, Brand New Heavies took it back to the generation before – and provided live instrumentation for a host of fantastic talents – a legendary lineup that includes performances from Main Source, The Pharcyde, Black Sheep, Kool G Rap, Gang Starr, and Masta Ace – all young and at the top of their game, with a quality level that alone would make the album great – then really sends it over the top when paired with the instrumentation!

The group shift effortlessly between tight ensemble funk – including a few tasty instrumentals – and sweeter soul material that feature group vocals, with a strong falsetto lead stepping out front, in a way that really helps the music soar. The material was recorded in Muscle Shoals, but sounds so different than most of the other work from that studio at the time – on titles that include "Just One Moment", "Visions", "Smile", "Loving & Caring", "In A Special Kind Of Way", "Good Thing Bad Thing", "We're Gonna Have A Good Time", "Time Is Moving", "Smile", and "Get A Good Feeling".

Sandro BrugnoliniSuperground (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Four Flies (Italy), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99 39.99
Some of the trippiest sound library material we've ever heard from Sandro Brugnolini – in part because the core group here is a psychedelic combo, which might have led to a few of the tracks being used in a short animated film on Sharon Tate and Charles Manson! Yet as with most of the great sound library albums of the time, the music is way more than conventional – as guitar, organ, bass, and drums are arranged, recorded, and produced in very unusual ways – with a really open ear towards the fuller, larger sound – which includes great effects and other elements along the way! The whole thing's very groovy – kind of mid 60s Italian mod soundtrack styles meeting the psychedelic generation – and titles include "Kissing", "Villa Polanski", "Sharon Tate", "Hip Now", "Lovable", "Petting", "Under Funeral", and "Malattia".

Donald ByrdParisian Thoroughfare (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Brunswick/Sam Records (France), 1958. New Copy (reissue)... $34.99 39.99
The second volume of work that Donald Byrd recorded live at the Olympia in Paris in 1958 – even harder-hitting in tone than the first! The set features Byrd playing some tight hardbop lines – working in a cool group that also features Bobby Jaspar on tenor, Walter Davis Jr on piano, Doug Watkins on bass, and Art Taylor on drums – all players who come together with the sound and style of some of those great late 50s Prestige blowing sessions! The difference, though, is that Byrd is the clear leader here – working his trumpet solos with techniques that really show him growing as an artist on this Paris trip – forging a tight vision into the music that makes it way more than just a loose bop exercise on stage. You'll hear that especially on "52nd Street Theme", but the whole set's pretty darn great – and tracks include "At This Time", "Formidable", "Two Bass Hit", "Parisian Thoroughfare", and "Stardust". LP, Vinyl record album
(Done with great vinyl, and a heavy European-style cover!)

CanMonster Movie (blue vinyl pressing) ... LP
Spoon/Mute, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $30.99 31.99
The groundbreaking debut of Can – a record that came out on 1969, and is every bit a part of its time – but also light-years ahead of so many of its contemporaries, with a quality that's kept the music intensely resonant over the decades! The songs are long, jamming, and full of plenty of prog and psych elements – yet they're also unlike those genres at all – maybe colder, starker, more visionary – using just familiar instruments, but in ways that are oddly unsettling – thanks in part to the intensity of the group's sense of interplay! The amazing Jaki Leibezeit is on drums, next to the raw guitar work of Michael Karoli, the insane basslines of Holger Czukay, and mad organ of Irmin Schmidt – topped here with vocals from the group's initial singer, Malcolm Mooney. The whole thing's fantastic – and titles include "Father Cannot Yell", "Mary Mary So Contrary", "Outside My Door", and the incredible side-long "You Doo Right" – which takes up the second half of the album!

Jeff CarneyLive Electronic Music ... LP
Audio File/Lion, 1989. New Copy ... $19.99
An incredible album of electronic music – and one that definitely lives up to its title, as every selection is played live – quite a unique thing as the set was recorded at a time when programming was really beginning to take hold! In a way, Jeff Carney is evoking that first great moment when more expensive electronics were able to get in the hands of more homegrown musicians – using technology that was previously the stuff of academic labs, but in ways that were much more down to earth! You can definitely feel that vibe here – as Carney works magic at a level that has us imagining him just sitting alone in the echoey space of recording – revelling in each new fingertouch on the keyboards – as he spins out the long tracks "Questions Unanswered", "Arp 2600 Improvisations", and "Pensive Mood". LP, Vinyl record album
(First-ever vinyl release – beautifully done with a heavy booklet of notes!)

Bureau B (Germany), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $27.99
A fantastic dig through the music of Cluster – one that not only features some of their spacey minimal moments from Sky Records, but also includes some of their earliest sounds on Brain Records too! Producer/musician John McIntire's been influenced strongly by Cluster's music over the years – and here, he returns his love to the duo of Dieter Moebius and Hans-Joachim Rodelius – by offering up his own edits of their tracks "Grosses Wasser", "In Ewigkeit", and "21 32" – alongside well-chosen classics that include "Hollywood", "The Shade", "Fur Die Katz", "Oh Odessa", and "Wehrmut".

Ornette ColemanRound Trip – The Complete Ornette Coleman On Blue Note (At The Golden Circle/Empty Foxhole/New York Is Now/Love Call/New & Old Gospel) (6LP set – 180 gram pressing) ... LP
Blue Note, Late 60s. New Copy 6LP ... $225.99 229.98
A tremendous package of work from Ornette Coleman – five albums issued under his own name, and one collaboration with Jackie McLean too! First up are At The Golden Circle Vols 1 & 2 – important second chapter work from Ornette Coleman – a record that marked a real shift in his sound from the Atlantic Records years – issued by Blue Note at a level that gave the rest of the world a chance to see what Ornette had been cooking up on the underground scene! The album was recorded in Stockholm – in the tradition of European live performances that saw Coleman grow so strongly in the mid 60s – and the tracks are long, free, and full of improvised moments – with Ornette adding in trumpet and violin next to his familiar alto – in a trio with David Izenzon on bass and Charles Moffett on drums – both fantastic players who can be loose at the right moments, and bring things back at others. Tracks are long and unbridled – with less of the rhythmic changes that you'd hear in work by the classic quartet, and more of a full-on fierce soloing mode. Titles include "Snowflakes & Sunshine", "Morning Song", "Faces & Places", "Dee Dee", "Dawn", "The Riddle", and "Antiques". Next is Empty Foxhole – one of our favorite Ornette Coleman albums of the post-Atlantic 60s years – a set that still hangs onto some of the bold rhythmic conception of his previous records, but also points the way towards his freer jazz modes to come! The group's a trio – with really tremendous work from Charlie Haden on bass, able to match Coleman's energy with effortless ease, and really getting a lot of room to leave his mark on the music – plus the very young (10!) Denardo Coleman, who plays drums here with this stark, simple style that's not only completely unique, but which also leaves a lot of open room left for Haden and Ornette to really stretch out. Ornette plays his usual alto, plus trumpet and violin – and titles include "Good Old Days", "The Empty Foxhole", "Zig Zag", and "Freeway Express". Next is New York Is Now – a pretty bold statement from saxophonist Ornette Coleman, but one that definitely shows his shift in role – from a major force on the LA underground of the early 60s, to an artist who was helping pave the way for a huge wave of growth on the New York downtown scene in years to come! Ornette's at his most late 60s unbridled here – freer than before, and working with a lineup that includes Jimmy Garrison on bass and Elvin Jones on drums – still no piano at all – plus great work from Dewey Redman on tenor, who really burst into new prominence with this album. Ornette plays a bit of violin alongside alto sax – and tracks include "Toy Dance", "Round Trip", "Broad Way Blues", and "We Now Interrupt For A Commercial". Then comes Love Call – a really great late 60s session from Ornette Coleman – one that shows is increasing expansion in sounds and styles, and which also offers a bridge between avant jazz generations too! That bridge comes in the presence of Jimmy Garrison on bass and Elvin Jones on drums – a surprising Coltrane rhythm duo, working here with Ornette's mindblowing work on alto sax, and tenor from a young Dewey Redman – already a crucially intense player here next to Coleman, as both are set free in a group without any piano – that Ornette melding of rhythm and melody, but with a very different vibe than the Atlantic years! Coleman blows trumpet on one tune – and titles include "Love Call", "Airborne", "Check Out Time", and "Open To The Public". The set also includes the album New & Old Gospel – one of Jackie McLean's last "new thing" albums for Blue Note – and a very unique record that features Ornette Coleman on trumpet! The sound here is stark and hard – slight hints of the soulfulness that the "gospel" in the title might imply, mixed with the angular exploratory sound that McLean had been forging at Blue Note during the mid 60s – a wonderful balance that really gives the record a lot of bite! The album's easily one of the most "out" that McLean ever recorded, and the group also includes Lamont Johnson on piano, Scott Holt on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums – all pushing themselves in the company of the avant jazz giants. Tracks include the extended "Lifeline" suite, which takes up all of side one – plus "Old Gospel" and "Strange As It Seems". LP, Vinyl record album

CommonBeautiful Revolution Pt 1 & 2 (clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
Loma Vista, 2021. New Copy 2LP ... $39.99 44.99 On November 11, 2022
A beautiful revolution from Common – a set that's maybe got more of a message than most of his music of the past decade – but which also comes across with a more interesting musical palette as well! Part of the album's sound comes from heavy contributions from PJ – singer Paris Jones, whose well-crafted soul vocals make for a nice match with Common's rhymes – as PJ appears on six of the album's nine tracks, and could well be billed as a co-star on the set! Other guests include Lenny Kravitz Chuck D, Black Thought, and Stevie Wonder – on titles that include "What Do You Say", "Say Peace", "Fallin", "A Place In This World", "Riot In My Mind", "Don't Forget Who You Are", and "Courageous". Volume 2 is a righteous continuation of the first revolution encouraged by Common in 2021 – and a set that takes all the message and spirit of the initial entry, and opens things up to an even more collaborative project – thanks to guest work from artists who include Seun Kuti, Black Thought, Marcus King, PJ, and others – all woven together in a record that's got all the positivity that you might expect from its cover. Karriem Riggins produced – and titles include "A Beautiful Chicago Kid", "Star Of The Gang", "Imagine", "When We Move", "Majesty", "Set It Free", "Poetry", and "Saving Grace". LP, Vinyl record album

DamonSong Of A Gypsy (clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
Now Again, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99 27.99 On January 20, 2023
An amazing reissue of this now-legendary album – once a lost psych oddity, but a set that's gone onto make plenty of waves over the years! Song Of A Gypsy may well be one of the best self-issued psych sets from the American underground – a really well-written, well-recorded record that has a very dark personal vision – an approach to the music that's instantly unique, and which shows that digging for rare psych albums can really yield the occasional gem that stands head and shoulders with the bigger names of the time! Damon's voice is darkly spooky, and couched with these cool flanged-out guitar lines on the sides – creating a space that's very personal, and which seems to let the lyrics hit these qualities that go much deeper than usual. Titles include "Song Of A Gypsy", "Funky Funky Blues", "Don't You Feel Me", "The Night", "Feel Your Love", "Oh What A Good Boy Am I", and "Birds Fly So High". LP, Vinyl record album

Miles DavisDecoy (clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
Columbia/Get On Down, 1984. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $26.99 30.99
The decoy here might be in the rhythms, which are often electric, but still played live – handled by Robert Irving III on many tracks, with a cool 80s fusion sound that's mighty nice! The style of the album's a nice change from the Miles groove of the 70s – a bit leaner, with almost a Weather Report influence at times, but far less jamming – and still prone to the darker tones that always make Davis' music of these later years surprisingly good. Al Foster handles acoustic drums on some tracks, and other players include Bill Evans on soprano sax and Mino Cinelu on percussion – on titles that include "Decoy", "Robot 415", "Code MD", "Freaky Deaky", "What It Is", "That's Right", and "That's What Happened".

✨✧ Miles DavisKind Of Blue (stereo) (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Columbia, 1959. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99 25.98
What can we say? This is the ultimate Miles Davis album – the one that includes so many songs that we've heard way too much in Starbucks, in retail stores, or at a friend's house who claims to be a "jazz expert", but is really a yuppie dilettante. Yet somehow, over all the years, and all those playings, the record manages to still sound fantastic – a truly inspirational piece of music that's long deserved all the attention it gets! The legendary group on the album includes John Coltrane on tenor, Cannonball Adderley on alto, Bill Evans on piano, and Paul Chambers on bass – working with Miles in a relatively modal style, with brilliant rhythm changes and a wonderful sense of space. The whole thing's sublime – and titles include "Blue In Green", "All Blues", "So What", and "Freddie Freeloader". LP, Vinyl record album

Miles DavisThat's What Happened 1982 to 1985 – Bootleg Series Vol 7 (white vinyl pressing) ... LP
Sony, Early 80s. New Copy 2LP ... $40.99 42.99
A great look at the fresh energy that Miles Davis was bringing to his music in the 80s – and a set that's nicely different than some of the other albums issued in the "bootleg" series – in that two thirds of the collection features unissued studio material from the dates in the title! Those tracks are great – numbers that were recorded in the same sessions that gave the world the records Decoy, Star People, and You're Under Arrest – with work from players who include John Scofield and Mike Stern on guitars, Robert Irving III on keyboards, Bill Evans on tenor and soprano saxes, and the great Al Foster on drums. Miles even plays a bit of keyboards himself, but is also really focusing strong energy on his trumpet lines – more tightness than some of his 70s material, but not in a way that's slick or commercial either – still plenty of bite throughout. Studio titles include "Celestial Blues, Part 2", "Minor Ninths, Part 2", "Santana", "Freaky Deaky (Vinyl Edit)", "Hopscotch (Fast)", "Never Loved Like This (Studio Session Demo", and some alternates of Miles' versions of "Human Nature" and "Time After Time".
