✨✧ Meshell NdegeocelloVentriloquism (180 gram vinyl – with download) ... LP
Naive (France), 2018. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic project from the legendary Meshell Ndegeocello – one that has her taking on the tunes of others, hence the title of the album – but completely transforming them with her own unique approach to bass and vocals! Most of the numbers won't be recognized at the start, as the Ndegeocello approach feels as if she wrote all of the work herself – but as the set goes on, you'll definitely catch elements of the tunes – yet love them even more in the way they come alive as vehicles for new expression! Meshell sings and plays bass with a core group that includes great guitars from Chris Bruce, heavy drums from Abraham Rounds, and keyboards from Jebin Bruni – and guests on the album include Jeff Parker on guitar and Kat Khaleel on additional vocals. Titles include "Private Dancer", "Smooth Operator", "I Wonder If I Take You Home", "Nite & Day", "Sensitivity", "Atomic Dog 2017", "Sometimes It Snows In April", and "Don't Disturb This Groove". LP, Vinyl record album

Nina HagenFearless ... LP
Columbia, 1983. Near Mint- ... $13.99
A strange and ultimately very fun set from Nina Hagen circa '83 – with production by Giorgio Morodor that's clearly geared towards an 80s mainstream club soul sound – and the record turns out to be all the weirder because of it! Nina's vocals are as anti-pop as they come, and Morodor's synthy grooves makes for a strange mix. She trys to vamp it up Blondie style on some tunes, but her punk operatic tendancies and that scary Berlin accented growl are never far behind the attempts at sweetness – and Morodor's shiny, shiny gloss and drum machines are really charming in the context! In hindsight, it was probably pretty naive to think Nina Hagen could pull off a Madonna style hit record – and that makes this one of the more fascinating miscalculations of the early 80s – and worth a listen! Titles include "New York New York", "My Sensation", "Flying Saucers", "I Love Paul", "The Change", "Silent Love", "What It Is" (featuring backing by wee little group of youngsters who call themselves The Red Hot Chili Peppers), "TV Snooze", "Springtime And Paris", "Zarah".

George HarrisonElectronic Sound ... LP
Apple, 1969. Very Good+ ... $19.99
A real oddity from George Harrison – a record of abstract electronics, cut right around the same time as his bigger mainstream solo hits! The record is a highly experimental one – a session that has Harrison working with Bernie Krause, and exploring territory that's much more in the late 60s Limelight Records mode than it is that of Apple – which is quite possibly why the label is listed as "Zapple", not "Apple"! Each tune takes up a full side of the album – and builds slowly out of soundshapes and textures, very much in the manner of some of the best work from the academic electronic music centers in the US at the time. And while the album may be a bit loose and unfocused overall, it's actually got a really appealing quality that we love a lot – a sense of free and naive exploration that's pretty great. Titles include "Under The Mersey Wall" and "No Time Or Space". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original US pressing, including the printed inner sleeve. Cover is nice!)

✨✧ Space LadySpace Lady's Greatest Hits ... LP
Mississippi, Early 80s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Really wonderful sounds from the enigmatic Space Lady – an artist who mostly performed on the streets of Boston and San Francisco in the 70s, but who also managed to make the handful of recordings featured in this set! The tunes are wonderfully spare, and surprisingly beautiful – often just Casio keyboards with bits of electronic processing, which is also extended to the vocals as well – which links the keys and lyrics in this spacey style that's completely sublime! At some level, Space Lady feels a bit like a street corner version of Laurie Anderson (who herself played many corners in the early years) – but there's also a more tuneful and naive approach to the music as well, which gives the whole thing a really unique approach.

(Limited to 1000 copies.)

✨✧ Talking HeadsSpeaking In Tongues ... LP
Sire, 1983. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
David Byrne brings his love of funk and soul to the forefront – tightening things up a bit from before, but still staying strongly in a classic Talking Heads groove! The record's possibly the last of the group's initial classic run, and has a surprisingly soulful feel at times – a hybrid of early 80s funk and club modes, played by guests who include Wally Badarou on synth, Bernie Worrell on keyboards, and Steve Scales and David Van Tieghem on percussion. Nona Hendryx sings a bit of backing vocals too – and Byrne really steps up to the grooves without ever going too far over the top. Titles include "Burning Down The House", "Making Flippy Floppy", "Girlfriend Is Better", "Slippery People", "I Get Wild/Wild Gravity", "Swamp", "Moon Rocks", "Pull Up The Roots", and "This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody)".

✨✧ MoondogMoondog (Columbia) ... LP
Columbia, 1969. Very Good Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
This was the first of Moondog's albums on Columbia – produced in a style that took him a lot more seriously than other albums on labels like Brunswick or Prestige, and handled in a way that slots it nicely between the label's experiments in modern music with artists like Terry Riley or Harry Partch. The tracks still have all the naive charm of Moondog's earlier work, but they're performed by a top-shelf orchestra that includes classical and jazz players, including Ron Carter, Hubert Laws, Buddy Morrow, and Phil Bodner. Moondog himself handles the bass – and tracks include "Minisym #1", "Stamping Ground", "Symphonique #6", and "Witch Of Endor". LP, Vinyl record album
(360 Sound Masterworks pressing, matrix ending in 1B. Cover has an unglued seam and light surface wear.)

✨✧ Emerald WebStargate Tapes 1979 to 1982 ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2 LPs ... Out Of Stock
A beautifully trippy duo who work here mostly with electronics – but who use the instruments in very organic ways that are almost acoustic! There's an earthy, almost hippieish quality to the sounds on the set – music that belies the pair's placement in the pre-New Age instrumental underground shared by Iasos, Laraaji, and others – but which also comes across here with a unique quality that's very much all their own! The music has a naive, optimistic feel that's very cool – and even when the keyboards step out front a bit more strongly on a few tracks, the energy of the record still has a lot more warmth than the Sky Records scene in Germany. After a smattering of various reissues, this full set finally does the duo justice – bringing together all the best track from their rare album and cassette-only releases – with the kind of notes and details we love from the Finders Keepers label. Titles include "Dawn", "The Dragon's Gate", "Flight Of The Raven", "Voices Of The Sage", "Chasing The Shadowbeast", "Nightsong", and "Valley Of The Birds". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ KeithAdventures Of Keith ... LP
RCA, 1969. Sealed ... Out Of Stock
A rich blend of breezy orchestrations and an early rock opera narrative from Keith – and ambitious set of groovy psychedelic pop songcraft that's light years away from his earlier hit – and an underappreciated gem that more or less capped off his young career! The record has some fairly driving rhythms holding together some fairly grand arrangements, and soulful pop singing from Keith. Nice stuff, a little sweet and naive, and charming in its late 60s psych pop grandiosity. Titles include "Alone On The Shore", "Trixon's Election", "Waiting To Be", "Melody", "The Problem", "Marstrand", "Mr Hyde", "China Clipper", "Elea-Elea" and "Charley Cinders". LP, Vinyl record album
(Shrinkwrap is lightly aged. Cover has a small cutout hole.)

✨✧ Norma TanegaWalkin' My Cat Named Dog (green vinyl pressing) ... LP
New Voice/Real Gone, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.99
A really unique record from Norma Tanega – a singer with roots in folk, but who works here in a mode that's very much her own! Norma sings and plays acoustic guitar as pictured on the cover – but the song styles and production are often very different than you might expect – slightly psychedelic at times, especially on the more love-oriented lyrics – and given some unusual arrangements by Herb Bernstein, working here under Bob Crew – who uses subtle elements to expand things around the edges, without getting in Tanega's way – so that there's a trippy quality to the songs that really fits the naivete of the lyrics. Titles include "You're Dead", "Walkin My Cat Named Dog", "A Street That Rhymes At 6am", "I'm Dreamin A Dream", "What Are We Craving", "No Stranger Am I", and "Hey Girl". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 1000 – on green vinyl!)
