A Certain RatioACR Box (4CD set) ... CD
Factory/Mute, Early 80s. New Copy 4CD ... $42.99 45.98
A really great collection of work from one of the coolest, most compelling groups to record for the legendary Factory Records label – a combo who were contemporaries of Joy Division and New Order, but who had a very different sound! A Certain Ration – or ACR for short – had a wicked approach that was part funk, part punk – but often more soulful than contemporaries like Pigbag or Bush Tetras – a quality that only advanced as the group aged a bit, and learned to play their instruments even better than before! Factory was very committed to ACR right from the start – and in addition to key albums, they also recorded the group in many ways, which also yielded plenty of unusual tracks for singles, and plenty of unreleased material too. This package brings together all the best of those moments – and features 53 tracks that are a huge addition to their smaller catalog of LP releases – titles that include the previously unissued "Houses In Motion (demo)", "And Then Again (another version)", "Piu Lento (Peel Session)", "Nostromo A Go Go (demo)", "Backs To The Wall (demo)", "It's Trippin When I'm Fine", "Mello (JD 800 perc mix)", "Teko 4 An Answer (120 bpm)", "Samba 123 (demo)", "Some Day (ACR rework)", "Say What You Mean (unfinished demo)", "WSLU", and "Happy Meal" – plus "The Planet", "Turn Me On (7" edit)", "Fever 103 (Greetings 4 version)", "Loosen Up Your Mind", "All Night Party", "Thin Boys", "Blown Away", "Funaezekea", "Abracadubra", "Sommadub", "Guess Who (12" mix)", "Tumba Rumba", "Knife Slits Water (12" version)", "There's Only This", "Si Fermir O Grido (Touch cassette version)", "Brazilia (long)", "The Runner (Greetings 4 version)", and "Sounds Like Something Dirty".

A Certain RatioSextet ... CD
Factory/Mute, 1982. New Copy ... $9.99 14.98
Quite possibly the funkiest album ever by the groundbreaking British group A Certain Ratio – filled with lots of heavy post-disco bass and percussion, all rattling away with the energy of some of the best work on Ze Records a the time! The group's dark moody feel is still largely in place, but by the time of this record, they've learned to play their instruments a bit more – and really have a way of twisting around all the inspirations they've lifted from American funk and Jamaican dub! The album features a great long take on the track "Knife Slits Water" – one of the group's catchiest tunes ever – plus the cuts "Below The Canal", "Rialto", "Rub Down", "Skipscada", "Crystal", and "Lucinda".

Chris CarterArchival 1973 to 1977 (blue vinyl pressing – with download) ... LP
Mute, Mid 70s. New Copy ... $20.99 22.98
Early and amazing sounds from electronic genius Chris Carter – material recorded in his home studio during the mid 70s – with a style that clearly lays the blueprint for his collaborations to Throbbing Gristle! Yet without any vocals or other noise, you can really hear the Carter component of the music in a wonderful way – different even than his later collaborations with Cosi Fanni Tutti, even when spare – as the whole vibe here is maybe a more condensed version of Krautrock electronics, taken into the space of songs that are just a few minutes long – but which also have a lot more darkness than other electronic work of the time. That sense of darkness is key – as these tracks are subtle, but very different than spacier or more calming music of the type – proof that Carter was really an emotional pioneer when it came to this side of the spectrum. Titles include "Warm Hair", "Nodes", "Head Less", "Jet Age", "Hexfoil", "Black Powder", "Ghost Trains", and "See Sick". LP, Vinyl record album

Chris CarterMondo Beat (clear vinyl pressing – with download) ... LP
Conspiracy International/Mute, 1985. New Copy (reissue)... $20.99 22.98
Seminal solo sounds from Chris Carter – best known for his work with Cosey Fanni Tutti, and as a core member of Throbbing Gristle – out here in slightly different territory on his own! Chris follows the spare electronics of his work with Cosey – and some of the tracks definitely have the "beat" promised in the title – but at a level that's nicely subtle, and never sacrifices the overall sonic complexity for the sake of a groove! The record's a very early variant of modes that would later be handled less-skillfully by the end of the decade by so many others – and sounds much better here in the hands of one of the originators – on titles that include "Mondo B", "Moonlight", "Real Life", "Noevil", "Nobadhairdo", and "Beyond Temptation". And be warned – the cover says "this record contains subliminals"! LP, Vinyl record album

Mark Stewart & The MaffiaLearning To Cope With Cowardice (2CD version – with bonus tracks) ... CD
On-U Sound/Mute, Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99 18.99
Wonderfully noisy, messy grooves from the mighty Mark Stewart – working here in the best spirit of the On-U sound years – when just about anything was allowable in the studio! Stewart's equally influenced by punk and dub, but also has a sound that's completely his own – very dark and moody, and filled with political energy from the Reagan/Thatcher era – with instrumentation from a host of other On-U label mates – including musicians from New Age Steppers, African Head Charge, and The Dub Syndicate – brooding under the kind of trippy percussion that only Adrian Sherwood could deliver at the time. A huge bridge between London of the punk years, and England of the Massive Attack/Tricky generation – with titles that include "Liberty City", "The Paranoia Of Power", "High Ideals & Crazy Dreams", "None Dare Call It Conspiracy", "Learning To Cope With Cowardice", "Blessed Are Those Who Struggle", and "Don't Ever Lay Down Your Arms". Features a full bonus album of unreleased material – titles that include "Conspiracy", "May I", "High Ideals", "The Weight", "Liberty Dub", "Vision", and "Cowardice". CD

One of the most essential Can albums, and perhaps their best – have drums ever sounded better on a record? Ege Bamyasi features some of Jaki Liebezeit's greatest beats, from the shorter songs like the amazing "Vitamin C", "I'm So Green", and "Spoon", to the longer, stretched out tunes in the tradition of the group's previous masterpiece, Tago Mago – "Pinch", "Soup", and "One More Night". With the classic second lineup, featuring Damo Suzuki on vocals, spouting off in several languages during the course of single song, but with a few instrumental numbers too. Elastic grooves with a driving pulse! LP, Vinyl record album

A great electro classic from the earliest years of synth pop – served up here by a British group who set the scene for a whole generation! Silicon Teens never had the success of Human League or some of their contemporaries, but they definitely set the scene for that generation – by serving up these spare tunes with drum machine, synth, and stark vocals – usually offering up these synth-heavy remakes of rock tunes from the 50s and 60s! Most tracks are very short, and completely charming – mixed with a few original numbers too – titles that include "Chip N Roll", "Do You Love Me", "Yesterday Man", "Let's Dance", "Sweet Little Sixteen", "Just Like Eddie", "Red River Rock", and "Judy In Disguise".

✨✧ A Certain RatioForce (colored vinyl pressing – with bonus download) ... LP
Factory/Mute, 1986. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the tightest albums ever from A Certain Ratio – a set that has them drawing on their 70s funk inspirations even more than before – and really finding a way to focus the soulful side of their talents! In a way, the sound here is a bit like that taken by Gang Of Four over the course of their short early career – a start in punk blooming strongly in funk – with lots of basslines at the bottom, and songs that aren't as dark as before – surprisingly tuneful at times, and even with a bit of guest vocals from Corrine Drewery in her pre-Swing Out Sister years! Not surprisingly, Drewery and ACR member Andrew Connell would take this brand of jazz funk even farther in that group – but here, in a Factory Records setting, things still have a nice edge that ties them to their roots. Titles include "Naked & White", "Bootsy", "And Then She Smiles", "Only Together", "Take Me Down", and "Anthem". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ A Certain RatioI'd Like To See You Again (yellow vinyl pressing) ... LP
Factory/Mute, 1982. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A pivotal album for post-punk legends A Certain Ratio – done at a time when the group was really putting a lot of funk and soul into their style – learning to play their instruments a bit more like the soul artists who inspired them, and acting less like the punk musicians they first appeared to be. The change actually makes for a pretty darn nice album – a record of smoother than usual instrumental sides that have some more straight ahead rhythms than before, but still enough darkly-tinged moments to keep things interesting. Titles include "Touch", "Saturn", "Hot Knights", "Sesamo Apriti Corco Vada", "Axis", "Guess Who" and "Show Case". LP, Vinyl record album

United Artists, 1973. Sealed ... $24.99
The historic album by Can – capping off their classic early 70s trilogy that includes Tago Mago and Ege Bamyasi – and the last one with Damo Suzuki in the line up! While very similar to Ege Bamyasi, Future Days takes a step away from their more experimental sounds and has more of the long rhythmic grooves. It's a little slicker than their earlier material but it's just as intense in it's own way! The songs are "Future Days", "Spray", "Moonshake", and the 20 minute long "Bel Air". LP, Vinyl record album

A record that comes on with the frenzy of an Ornette Coleman Quartet session – and one with a very similar lineup too – given that Nate Wooley is on trumpet, Chris Pitsiokos is on alto, Brandon Lopez is on bass, and Dre Hocevar is on drums! Yet the sound is freer, and bolder too – as the instruments flurry together in clusters, then burst out into incredible sonic territory as the set moves on – with moments that include Wooley blowing fast and tuneful with a mute, like some speed freak Miles Davis – or hitting these popping, punctuated sounds that are really unusual. The record's one that really keeps us on the edge of our seats – and furthers the sense of surprise that can make real jazz improvisation so special! CD

Brief EncounterWe Want To Play (with bonus track) ... LP
Dream/Athens Of The North (UK), 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
An obscure bit of boogie from Brief Encounter – a southern soul group known best for their mid 70s sides for the Sound Stage Seven label, stepping out here in a completely different 80s groove! Most tracks are upbeat and dancefloor funky – plenty of bass on the bottom and some sweet electric keys – but often used in a way that's more in a 70s ensemble funk mode than the keyboards you'd hear on other early 80s indie soul. There's a warmth here that's quite nice, and most tracks feature the larger group harmonizing on vocals – in a way that sounds especially sweet on the mellower tracks. And while the recording quality of the original record is sometimes a bit muted, the group themselves sound plenty great – really bouncing along wonderfully with a soaring groove and a sense of tightness that goes beyond their indie roots! Titles include "Sweet Tender Loving", "We Want To Play For You", "Now I Know I Love You", "Rocking", "Since I Met You Girl", "Just For Love", "Open Up Your Heart", and "If You Want My Love".

Acevedo's trumpet blows a warmly muted tone over the top of the tunes – and most numbers have vocals by a male singer, who brings a nice sort of feeling to the album's bolero selections, especially on the cuts with chorus accompaniment. Titles include "Recuento", "Alma Herida", "Llena De Gracia", "Agarrate De La Brocha", "No Me Importa Lo Que Digan", and "Fatalismo". LP, Vinyl record album

Evans' shimmering horn patterns are in fine form here – complicated, but never in cold and too-modern ways – just the right sort of backdrop for Miles' muted solo work – blow with a great sense of space and care throughout! There's almost a soundtrack sort of depth to the record, but the solos still keep the jazz element nicely in focus – and titles include "Summer Night", "Wait Till You See Her", "Aos Pes Da Cruz", "Song #1", "Song #2", "Corcovado", and "Once Upon A Summertime".

Sweeter studio Miles Davis from the 80s – a record that takes the 70s electric experiments and fuses them into a sound that's got a lot more R&B influence than before! The style is a bit poppy at times, but never in a way that's too slick – and often, Davis is using his muted trumpet to state lines boldly in ways that still have a greater sense of depth and craft than most of his contemporaries. A few tracks show some of the gritty New York rock/funk trend of the time, while others are lighter and more lyrical – and titles include covers of "Time After Time" and "Human Nature" – Miles' attempt to find standards in contemporary pop – plus the tracks "Katia", "You're Under Arrest", "Ms Morrisine", and "One Phone Call/Street Scenes".

The set's an obscure "with strings" date for Harry – one that has his trumpet nicely wrapped up in larger backings that have a gentle, laidback feel. The moody, mellow sound is a great complement to Harry's horn – really showcasing his talents on muted ballads – and the album also features contributions from Gerald Wiggins on piano and Leroy Vinnegar on bass.

The music is in the more romantic side of the Gleason spectrum – heavy on strings, with some muted horns – and a style overall that mixes mellower moments with a few slinkier, sexier ones. Side two features some more familiar numbers done with Bobby Hackett on lead trumpet – titles that include "Some Day", "Little Girl", "If I Had You", and "I Cover The Waterfront".

The spare format is an extremely wonderful showcase for Haden's expressive bass work – and the intimacy of the tracks is different from some of the ECM recordings made during the same stretch – as the feel here is less a muted exploration of sound than it is a deeply personal interaction with some of the best talents of his generation. Tracks include "Ellen David", "For Turiya", "OC", and "For A Free Portugal". LP, Vinyl record album

A great Columbia Records set from the mighty Lee Michaels – still going strong after an amazing run of albums on A&M, but with a vibe that's maybe a bit more underground overall! Lee's still a hell of a songwriter, but he's also got an approach that's maybe slightly muted – almost as if he's done trying for charming stardom, but more than happy enough to revel in his own skills as a singer! There's a nicely relaxed vibe to the record, and clearly Columbia was more than happy to let Lee do his own thing, his own way – which he does beautifully on tunes that include "So Hard", "Olson Arrives At Two Fifty Five", "Your Breath Is Bleeding", "Went Saw Mama", "Bell", and "The Other Day".

A beautiful little DIY black & white photography book by Ramon Norwood, aka Radius Etc, the multi-talented Chicago abstract hip hop producer, beatmaker and artist! We don't fancy ourselves art critics here at Dusty Groove, but we know Radius's sound, and for us it's pretty nice to see how his straight-forward snapshots of the world through his eyes translate into his hazy beautiful beats and production – but this is all visual and it's a wonderful view whether you've heard him, or are only seeing his photos – of a lovely old building through a tagged doorframe, a cloudy distant Chicago skyline, lonely souls on a commuter train, stacks of records calling you from another room and lots of other stark but storied shots. It's a slim book you can flip through a little too fast – just 56 paperback pages – but we keep coming back to it! Book

Moody magic from Miles Davis and Gil Evans – one of the pair's most perfectly poised albums together, and a set with a slight bossa nova undercurrent! Evans' shimmering horn patterns are in fine form here – complicated, but never in cold and too-modern ways – just the right sort of backdrop for Miles' muted solo work – blow with a great sense of space and care throughout! There's almost a soundtrack sort of depth to the record, but the solos still keep the jazz element nicely in focus – and titles include "Summer Night", "Wait Till You See Her", "Aos Pes Da Cruz", "Song #1", "Song #2", "Corcovado", and "Once Upon A Summertime". CD also features the great bonus track "The Time Of The Barracudas" – a 12 minute tune that wasn't on the original album! CD

✨✧ Kenny DorhamQuiet Kenny ... LP
New Jazz, 1959. Sealed ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Kenny may be quiet, but he's never muted – and the record is far from the sleepy session you might guess from the title! The album's a real standout in the Dorham catalog – a set that let's Kenny's trumpet sparkle beautifully in a quartet that includes piano from Tommy Flanagan, bass from Paul Chambers, and drums from Art Taylor – all bringing their own spirit to the record, but really hanging back in the space to let Dorham's sound dominate the record. Kenny's notes are beautifully shaped throughout – in a mode that has echoes of Clifford Brown's sweetness, but which also speaks with a raspier, earthier tone overall! Titles include 2 key Dorham classics – "Lotus Blossom" and "Blue Spring" – plus "Mack The Knife", "My Ideal", "Blue Friday", and "Old Folks". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Dave GrusinThree Days Of The Condor (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Capitol/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Eddie HendersonHeritage ... CD
Blue Note, 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Essential work from Eddie Henderson – one of the trumpeter's hippest albums of the 70s, and a key link between his early righteous days and his later smoother sound! The set's a near-perfect blend of all elements involved – tight funky rhythms, spacey soulful instrumentation, and wicked production work from the mighty Skip Drinkwater in the studio – a record that's as essential to his legacy as Gears is to that of Larry Mizell! Henderson's trumpet work is totally great – often muted, and always snakey inside the rhythms – and other players here include Julian Priester on trombone, Hadley Caliman on flute and soprano sax, Patrice Rushen on keyboards, Paul Jackson on bass, and Headhunter Mike Clark on drums. Titles include the excellent groover "Inside You", plus "Kudu", "Acuphuncture", "Time & Space", "Dr Mganga", and "Dark Shadow". CD

✨✧ Miles DavisYou're Under Arrest ... CD
Columbia, 1984. Used ... Out Of Stock
Sweeter studio Miles Davis from the 80s – a record that takes the 70s electric experiments and fuses them into a sound that's got a lot more R&B influence than before! The style is a bit poppy at times, but never in a way that's too slick – and often, Davis is using his muted trumpet to state lines boldly in ways that still have a greater sense of depth and craft than most of his contemporaries. A few tracks show some of the gritty New York rock/funk trend of the time, while others are lighter and more lyrical – and titles include covers of "Time After Time" and "Human Nature" – Miles' attempt to find standards in contemporary pop – plus the tracks "Katia", "You're Under Arrest", "Ms Morrisine", and "One Phone Call/Street Scenes".

✨✧ Jon Hassell w/Brian Eno & Daniel LanoisPower Spot ... LP
ECM (Germany), 1986. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
Always-enigmatic work from Jon Hassell – hardly a trumpeter with a familiar sound, and a player who almost creates a genre unto himself! The work here is a great extension of the EG Records sides Hassell did with Brian Eno – and like those dates, Eno's on board for production, working here alongside Daniel Lanois – in an airy, atmospheric style that set the standard for countless imitations in years to come! As before, Hassell's horn has this compressed approach that's almost an electrification of older muted modes – quite unusual, and supported with lots of subtle sounds on keyboards, guitar, and percussion – all of which are equally abstracted too. Titles include "Power Spot", "Passage DE", "Air", "The Elephant & The Orchid", "Wing Melodies", and "Miracle Steps". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bunny Lee & The AggrovatorsSuper Dub Disco Style ... LP
Pressure Sounds (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Don't think "disco" as in the New York scene at Studio 54 – as these cuts are much deeper and dubbier – served up under the supervision of Bunny Lee by studio maestros Barnabas and Pat Kelly! Instrumentation is by the Aggrovators, but the magic comes equally from the production effects as it does from the massive rhythms by the group – as all the elements are filtered out in space, and criss-cross back and forth in this wonderful way – never too sloppy or experimental, but definitely tripping out with the groove! Vocals are muted when they do make an appearance – and titles include "The Aggrovators Special Dub", "Money In My Pocket Dub", "Portobello Special Dub", "Super Rockers Dub", "The Bomb Dub", "The Killer Dub", and "The Dub Specialist".

✨✧ Arthur RussellWorld Of Echo ... LP
Audika, 1986. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Out Of Stock
An incredibly beautiful set of work from Arthur Russell – one of the few records to be issued under his own name during his tragically short life – and a hauntingly spare blend of vocals, hand percussion, and solo cello – recorded with more than enough echo to live up to the title! The style is incredibly hard to peg – at times delivered with an almost Nick Drake-like approach that's extremely personal, but also sharing some styles with the mellower work of Suicide and other New York art rock groups from Russell's generation. Russell's voice billows out in a field of echo, directed almost imperceptibly by resonant notes on an electrified cello, and bumped along by muted rhythms that have almost no "attack" but lots of delay. One thing is extremely clear: that the album, which virtually died upon release back in the 80s, was years ahead of its time – and has a quality that easily ranks it as one of the most inventive recordings of its decade. The whole thing's as surprisingly appealing as it is experimental, and this extra-deluxe package features a number of additional tracks. Titles include "Wax The Van", "Tone Bone Kone", "Answers Me", "Being It", "She's The Star/I Take This Time", "Tree House", "See Through", "Lucky Cloud", "Happy Ending", "Tower Of Meaning/Rabbit's Ear/Home Away From Home", and "Our Last Night Together".

✨✧ Miles DavisAscenseur Pour L'Echafaud (2CD deluxe edition) ... CD
Fontana/Universal, 1958. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
One of our favorite-ever Miles Davis albums – and a groundbreaking soundtrack that forever changed the way that jazz music was used in film! According to legend, the sounds here were recorded by Miles on a hot Paris night – late in the studio, after a live performance – in a very intimate setting that had he and the combo creating these little poetic passages along with the action in the film! In addition to sublime and moody muted trumpet from Miles – the small group also features tremendous tenor work from the great Barney Wilen – a French modernist who's at the height of his powers – and beautiful bass from Pierre Michelot, whose rich tones really frame the whole proceedings. The rest of the group features bop pianist Rene Urtreger and American drummer Kenny Clarke – but the real charm comes from the interplay between Wilen, Davis, and Michelo. Titles include "Florence Sur Les Champs-Elysees", "L'Assassinat De Carla", "Diner Au Motel", "Evasion De Julien", "Nuit Sur Les Champs-Elysees", "Le Petit Bal", "Au Bar Du Petit Bac" and "Sur L'Autoroute". This amazing 2CD version features one never-issued track – "L'Interrogatoire De Julien" – plus 16 more tracks from the sessions for the recordings, and a 60 page booklet of notes! CD
