✨✧ NasIllmatic XX (180 gram vinyl – plus download with 10 bonus tracks) ... LP
Columbia, 1994. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
20th anniversary edition of Nas's masterpiece Illmatic – which will probably stand forever as one of the greatest hip hop full lengths of its time – maybe even for all time. Nas has had some creative ups-and-downs over the years, but nothing can take away the impact of this damn near perfect slice of east coast street hop. Nasir, "World Is Yours", indeed. The original LP is all great – 100% lean, masterful production by DJ Premier, Large Professor, Pete Rock and Q-Tip – and the titles include "NY State Of Mind", "Life's A B***h", "Half Time", "One Love", "Memory Lane", "Represent" and more. Illmatic XX is on remastered 180 gram vinyl! LP, Vinyl record album

NasLife Is Good (deluxe edition) ... CD
Def Jam, 2012. Used ... $5.99
Life is good, and so is Nas – and that's an understatement – as he's one of the most vital MCs of the early 90s onward! Life Is Good finds Nas in a somewhat liberated mode, though still rocking an Empire State Building-sized chip on his shoulder – and spitting charismatic vitriol at any target deemed worthy – but he's too smooth and too sharp of a lyricist for it come off as too ill-mannered. Good stuff from a legend. Includes "No Introduction", the standout "Loco-Motive" with Large Professor, "Daughters", "Reach Out" with Mary J Blige, "Back When", "The Don", "Stay", "Bye Baby", "World's An Addiction" with Anthony Hamilton, "Summer On Smash" with Miguel & Swizz Beatz, "A Queen's Story" and more.

The original Lost Tapes was a game changer, a raw showcase for his rhymes style at it's core essence that followed a hit and miss creative and commercial run. Nas has been comfortable in his legacy and doing pretty solid work in the years leading up to Lost Tapes 2, so this one on more of a worthwhile bonus batch of worthy for his later career rather than a restatement of core strength.

The second album, and even if it's not as dope as as the mythical Illmatic, but how could anyone hope to live up to those expectations? The Trakmasters come up with some nice beats, chided for being a bit on the commercial side by critics at the time, but they've aged a lot better than most street rap chart fodder at the time. Lyrically Nas is still on point, and going back to this record, especially considering a few of the ones he's dropped since, it wears well with the test of time. Includes "Street Dreams", "If I Ruled The World", "Affirmative Action" and "Black Girl Lost" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Nas's sorta comeback record from the dawn of the millennium– a strong one at the time that still stands strong today! Stillmatic was a welcome change of pace after some not so great work in the later 90 – with the return-to-form rally cry "One Mic" setting the pace – and the best cuts on this set (which make up the majority of the run time) still sound great! 15 tracks including "Stillmatic", "Got Ur Self A...", "2nd Childhood", "You're Da Man", "The Flyest" featuring AZ, "Rule" featuring Amerie, "Ether", "What Goes Around", "Every Ghetto", "Braveheart Party" featuring Mary J Blige and more – included here is the bonus track "Every Ghetto!

A very cool set from the Brazilian scene of the 60s – one that combines an earlier male vocal mode with some of the organ-driven samba of the time – all with results that are pretty darn sweet! Carlinhos handles the Hammond – an instrument that soars out over lively percussion on most tracks, as Luiz Bandeira deftly moves through different lyrical melodies on medley tracks on the set – then delivers a few tunes of his own as well! Titles include "Ta Tudo Ai", "Despedida", "Ja Vou", "Ronda Das Sombras", "Ja Vou", and "Eu Nao Peco Outra Vez". CD

✨✧ Wlodzimierz NahornyJej Portret (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Polskie Nagrania/GAD (Poland), 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic set from Polish jazz musician Wlodzimierz Nahorny – a player with a name that's certainly a mouthful, but one with talents who will also leave you breathless! Nahorny shines here on a number of different instruments – with solos on alto sax, flute, and piano – plus some cool harpsichord on one track too – all set to the sophisticated backings of Jan Ptaszyn Wroblewski, who was easily one of Poland's hipper arrangers of the time! The album's got a mix of jazz and orchestration's that's as hip as some of the late 60s CTI sessions – particularly during their years with A&M Records – or with a vibe that's a bit like some of the later Stan Getz projects on Verve, with all the cool, sophisticated touches that would imply! Tracks are all Polish numbers, done instrumentally – which makes for an especially fresh feel to the set – and titles include "Obok Nas", "Wlasnie Tego Dnia", "Jej Portret", "Taki Dzien", and "Mowity Mu". CD also features 6 more bonus tracks from Polish Radio performances a few years before – showing Nahorny in great small combo settings! CD

Mass Appeal, 2019. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A sprawling double album from DJ Shadow – still defying expectations and avoiding nostalgia decades into his career – covering a lot territory production wise, with a diverse roster of guests to suit! As much as his early work is heralded for its timelessness, Shadow in later years has been been unafraid to make albums that are of their moment, and Our Pathetic Age is definitely one of them. A mix of diverse instrumentals with shades of Shadow's styles from throughout his long career, even if he doesn't do anything here that directly retraces his steps, plus vocal tracks with guests as varied as Run The Jewels, Fantastic Negrito, Nas & Pharoahe Monch, a Wu trio of Raekwon, Ghostface and Deck, De La Soul and more. Titles include "Nature Always Wins", "Firestorm", "If I Died Today", "COMFORM", "Kings & Queens", "Urgent. Important. Please Read", "Our Pathetic Age" and many more. LP, Vinyl record album

Chef Raekwon cooks up one of finest hip hop albums in history – a standout moment in the Wu Tang canon and the 90s in general! Given Ghostface's presence throughout, the prime RZA production and other top shelf guests, you could almost call this one a Wu Tang Clan album, if not for Raekwon's incredible leadership behind the mic. Guests include Nas, Method Man, Inspektah Deck and more from the Wu Tang family. An absolute standard-bearer! Titles include "Spot Rusherz", "Can It Be All So Simple", "Knuckleheadz", "Criminology", "Ice Water", "Wisdom Body", and "Wu-Gambinos". This beautiful Get On Down 2LP pressing includes the bonus track "North Star (Jewels)". LP, Vinyl record album

Beginning Of The EndNassau Funk ... CD
Alston/Playback, Early 70s. Used ... $9.99
Fantastic funk from Beginning Of The End – one of the coolest, grooviest, most unique funk groups of the 70s – and one who've got a real criss-crossing of styles in their sound! As you'd guess from the title, these guys hail from Nassau, in the Bahamas – but their sound is hardly the stale calypso of the earlier generation, or some of the more familiar island hybrids that were playing for the tourists. Instead, these guys completely reinvent funk from the ground up – adding in lots of their own special styles of rhythm and inflection, with elements that were learned from their home scene, but then refitted for a mode that's much more American funk overall – making these guys one of the few island acts to challenge the likes of Fatback or Kool & The Gang! The set's an extremely well-chosen batch of tracks from the group's few recordings – and titles include the classic "Funky Nassau (parts 1 & 2)", plus "Monkey Tamarind", "Super Woman", "Doin The Funky Do", "That's What I Get", "When Se Made Me Promise", "In The Deep Bahamian Boogie", "Fishman", "Pretty Girl", "I've Got The News", "Bluestrain", "Jump In The Water", "Gee Whiz It's Christmas", "Sleep On Dream On", "Trip To Nowhere", and "Come Down Baby".

A lost Brazilian rock set from the mid 70s – one that's nicely perched between the psychedelic sounds of the indie scene and some of the more tightly fused modes of the MPB mainstream! The tunes here are all relatively tightly structured – but they're carried off with a relaxed sensibility that really makes them sparkle – an almost languid quality that really fits the spacier production on both the vocals and guitars, nicely keeping things informal – almost as if the record were some rare set on a really tiny label. Titles include "A Natureza", "Trem De Verdade", "Canto Livre", "Preciso Lhe Ouvir", "Domingo A Tarde", "Sanduiche De Queijo", and "Mundo De Paz". CD

Solar, 1980. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Lots of musical adventures here – most of them in that tightly-romping style that made Dynasty so great back in the day – almost a fusion of older sweet group soul with some of the more bottom-driven modes forged by the Solar label! The keyboards are upfront, the basslines strong, and the group is completely tight on the money – at a level that made them one of the strongest 80s proponents of the Solar Records groove. The title cut here is our favorite – a sweet stepper that bursts out with this blast of sound that's totally great – completely captivating, and filled with cascading sounds that really grab us. Other tracks include "Ice Breaker", "Something To Remember", "Day & Night", "Do Me Right", and "I've Just Begun To Love You". LP, Vinyl record album

Per Texas Johansson/Torbjorn Zetterberg/Konrad AgnasOrakel (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Moserobie (Sweden), 2019. New Copy ... $22.99
A beautiful little record – of the sort it feels like the Moserobie label was created to record – jazz that's not totally free or improvised, but which is also doing way more than conventional swing as well – served up by a trio with a perfect sense of creative cohesion! The tunes build in very different ways – sometimes with a slight groove, sometimes more complexity – but never too arch for their own good. Per Texas Johansson is fantastic on both tenor and clarinet – and the always-fantastic work on bass of Torbjorn Zetterberg is completely sublime, and the core element that really holds the whole thing together. (Heck, he's such a hell of a bassist, we're not sure why he's not one of the most recognized musicians on the instrument in the world!) Drums are by Konrad Agnas – who has this loose sense of pulse that really matches the energy of the other players – and titles include "Jankai", "Torbjorn Monk", "Vinteride", "Oraklet Pa Ringvagen", "Blodspredikan", and "Insikt Och Utlopp".

Two rare grooves from this legendary group! "Sittin On A Red Hot Stove" is a slow-stepping monster – very hard and funky, but moving at a pace that's much more leisurely than anyone who's getting themselves burned on a grill! The tune's got a completely badass vibe that's almost like Merda – and it's backed here by a demo version of "Nassau Beat" – a very loose reworking of "Funky Nassau", with a nicely dark edge! 7-inch, Vinyl record

LiminanasCosta Blanca ... CD
Trouble In Mind, 2013. Used ... $9.99
The third amazing album from Liminanas – and a record that already has the group moving way farther forward than before! If their debut material had the quality of mid 60s French fuzzy pop, this set shows a deeper, darker Serge Gainsbourg-like sophistication – one that has the duo still holding onto some of the best mod and psych albums of before, but finding a new sense of rhythm, spacing, and overall presentation that's completely sublime! But make no mistake, the record's hardly a Serge copy effort – like other recent work of this type – and instead shows a really personal, powerful contribution to an all-too-small legacy of truly sublime work of this nature. The whole thing's tremendous – a record we'd proudly place next to any of our favorite French rarities of the late 60s – and titles include "Barrio Chino", "La Melancolie", "La Mediterranee", "My Black Sabbath", "Je Me Souviens Comme Si J'Y Etais", and "Cold Was The Ground".

Trouble In Mind, 2010. Used ... $11.99
One of the coolest, sexiest, most straight up irresistible French rock & roll albums we've heard in years – a great self-titled gem from Liminanas on Chicago's Trouble In Mind label! Drums, bass, woozy organ and percussion are at the core of the sound – with a raw, neo-classic garage psyche vibe, but it's the sultry, somewhat pulpy mood that sets them apart from the pack. Marie Liminana brings the spare, perfectly effective drums & percussion, while Lionel Liminana does all kinds of groovy stuff – guitar, bass, sitar, melodica, piano, organ and percussion – with special guests sharing vocal duties on alternate tracks. The Liminanas don't hammer away like underground garage kids around the world, they're more into setting a mood, but that doesn't compromise the raw and exhilarating edge. Titles include "The Darkside", "Je Ne Suis Pa Tre Drogue", "Chocolate In My Milk", "Mountain", "Berceuse Pour Clive", "Tears", "Tigre Du Bengale", "Got Nothin To Say" and more. CD

Thollem McDonas/William Parker/Nels ClineGowanus Sessions 2 ... CD
ESP, 2019. New Copy ... $12.99
Moody sounds from this reunited trio – Thollem McDonas on piano, William Parker on bass, and Nels Cline on guitar and effects – coming together here in a session that, we think, was recorded at the same time as their previous Gowanus album! As before, the music is maybe heavier in territory that we know from Cline – open, spacious, and with lots of sonic resonance between the individual elements – particularly the jagged sounds of the piano and the more subtle shadings of the guitar – but still at a level that makes Parker's bass a crucial grounding for the whole performance. The set features two long tracks – "Life In The World" and "World In A Life". CD

ESP, 2019. New Copy ... $24.99
Moody sounds from this reunited trio – Thollem McDonas on piano, William Parker on bass, and Nels Cline on guitar and effects – coming together here in a session that, we think, was recorded at the same time as their previous Gowanus album! As before, the music is maybe heavier in territory that we know from Cline – open, spacious, and with lots of sonic resonance between the individual elements – particularly the jagged sounds of the piano and the more subtle shadings of the guitar – but still at a level that makes Parker's bass a crucial grounding for the whole performance. The set features two long tracks – "Life In The World" and "World In A Life". LP, Vinyl record album

Nacka Forum (Goran Kajfes & Jonas Kullhammar)Sa Stopper Festen ... CD
Moserobie (Sweden), 2020. New Copy ... $18.99
Fantastic sounds from Nacka Forum – a group with a name that might be a bit unusual, but which represents some of the strongest work on the Moserobie label in recent years! The lineup here is a quartet – Goran Kajfes on trumpet and mellophone, Johan Bethling on bass, Kresten Osgood on drums and vibes, and Jonas Kullhammar on tenor, alto, clarinet, and bassoon – and most group members play percussion too – working together in this freewheeling style that often begins with the more structured avant modes of the Moserobie scene, but which also often takes off in freer flights too – but at a level that's really balanced throughout the album, making the set quite different than more familiar albums of improvised jazz. But that's one thing we've always loved about Moserobie – and the standard really holds true here – on titles that include "Tigray", "Big L", "Ohsogood", "Haltefanden", "Epilog", and "Reboleira". CD

Mario NascimbenePsycorama ... LP
Minstrel/Roundtable (Australia), Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99 31.98
Some of the moodiest, most unusual music we've ever heard from Mario Nascimbene – an artist who's maybe best known for working in the more romantic side of the spectrum, but who here is using a "mixerama" keyboard – which works a bit like the mellotron to sample elements, then put them into a specific scale! The tunes are often stark and spare, and build slowly in these waves of sonic energy – almost with a quality that feels more like the industrial underground of Zoviet France or Hafler Trio than anything we might have expected from Nascimbene, especially in the 60s. The album features a selection of songs used in short documentary films directed by Roberto Rossellini – and titles include "Angoscia", "Totalia Viole-Celli", "Attesa Antica", "Situazione Orientale", "Riberbo Di Tam Tam", "Percussione Di Timpani", "Tragedia Greca", and "Lunare".

✨✧ Fabiano Do NascimentoDanca Dos Tempos ... CD
Now Again, 2015. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A contemporary record, but one that's got an amazingly timeless feel – like the best early 70s material from Brazilian artists like Airto, Hermeto Pascoal, or Egberto Gismonti! The music of Fabiano Do Nascimento has a similar genre-breaking quality to these giants – not straight jazz, but very jazzy in parts – not traditional Brazilian roots, either – but very schooled in the strongest elements from decades of creativity on that scene – all wrapped up in this fresh, new blend that's completely mesmerizing right from the start! Most instrumentation is acoustic, and relatively simple – guitar, percussion, drums, and vocals – but the arrangements are wonderful, and fold these familiar elements together in ways that are completely unique. The legendary Airto guests on the record – but the vision here is clearly that of Fabiano Do Nascimento – as he mixes together works by Hermeto Pascoal, Baden Powell, and other Brazilian composers with some bold new ideas of his own. Titles include "Forro Brasil", "Minha Ciranda", "Etude", "Primeira Estrella", "Tupi", "Se Ela Preguntar", "Tocatta Em Ritmo De Samba", and "Nana". CD

Now Again, 2017. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A really beautiful second album from Fabiano Do Nascimento – and a set that really blows away his debut! This record's got an "instant classic" vibe right from the start – the kind of set that you could easily listen next to 70s gems by artists like Lo Borges, Milton Nascimento, or Edu Lobo – with a sound that hangs between the complexity and soul of all three of those artists – but a presentation that's also very personal and unique! Fabiano plays acoustic guitar throughout, with a cascading vibe that's incredibly compelling – and often offset by light flute and percussion, which skitter alongside his beautiful vocals – in ways that are always upbeat, but never too polished – really preserving this organic core in his music! The sound is sublime – sophisticated, but very organic – and if you know us at all, we're not ones to throw around the term "classic" lightly when it comes to Brazilian music. Titles include "Planalto", "Baiao", "Brasilerinho", "Ja Que Tu", "Oye Nana", "O Tempo", "Canto De Xango", and "Louva A Deus Mantis". CD

A second great statement from the "corner club" of Milton Nascimento – that special assemblage of musicians from his home territory of Minas Gerais, augmented here in slight ways that maybe make the album an even more ambitious record than the first! All the best artists from the previous set are in place here – including the sublime Lo Borges on vocals, Wagner Tiso on keyboards, Toninho Horta on bass and guitar – but the set also features contributions from other Brazilian talents – including Chico Buarque on vocals, Ed Maciel on trombone, Paulo Jobim on guitar, and even Azimuth on a bit of grooves! As with the first set, the mix of modes is amazing – all the rich, soulful qualities of Milton Nascimento's best early work – but delivered in a magnificently collaborative mode that never wastes a minute of the extended double-length space of the album. As before, songs are penned by most of the collaborators – and titles include "E Dai", "Pao E Agua", "Canoa Canoa", "Credo", "Nascente", "Meu Menino", "Que Bom Amigo", and "Dona Olimpia".

Prisonaires/Marigolds/SolotonesOnly Believe – Unissued & Rare Nashville Vocal Group Recordings ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Mid 50s. New Copy ... $13.99 23.98
Stunning sounds from the legendary Prisonaires – the important Memphis vocal group that first formed in prison, but was able to release a fair bit of commercial recordings over the years! The package is a great companion to previously-issued material on the group – as it features rare sides by the lineup, plus related groups that also featured the great tenorist Johnny Bragg in the lead – as well as some very obscure, and well-recorded live tracks that were only pressed on a limited private album for the prison management! Despite their roots behind bars, The Prisonaires have a style that's key in the development of the vocal group in the pre-soul years – a link between older group styles of the 30s and some of the more spiritual inflections that would blossom during the 60s – not really gospel harmonizing, but also not doo wop or pop, either – a really unique hybrid of elements that was very influential over the years. The package is awash in detail – 58 pages of notes and history, with a strong focus on Bragg – and the set features 18 tracks by The Prisonaires, including "In The Garden", "Suppertime", "Gentle Hands", "Just Walkin In The Rain", "Baby Please", "Two Strangers", "Lucy You Know I Want You", and "There Is Love In You" – plus four more by The Marigolds, including "Why Don't You", "Rollin Stone", and "Don't Say Tomorrow" – and six more by The Solotones, including "Two Strangers", "Front Page Blues", and "Pork & Beans".

Two rare cuts from Brazilian arranger Daniel Salians – both of them all warm and funky! "Atlantis" is also known as "Straussmania" – and for good reason too, as it features the same "2001" theme that was penned by the composer many years back – but served up here in a jazzy electric version that's mighty nice – heavy on Fender Rhodes, but also filled with funkier drums and more complicated rhythms than the Deodato version! "Baiao" has lots more percussion, and a vibe that's maybe more Brazilian overall – but the tune also has some mighty sweet Rhodes, which slide in and out of soaring strings, jazzy flute, and other great touches! 7-inch, Vinyl record

One of the best by The Sea & Cake – working in some more diverse elements than some of their later work – but even at this earlyish point, they've got a distinctive style all their own! It kicks off with the rawish, angular rocker "Nature Boy", but as the album goes along, in brings in the more signature Sea & Cake style of moody vocal melodies, avant, kinda jazzy guitar and rhythmic influences, subtle electronics and more leftfield pop songcraft. Tracks include "Parasol", "A Man Who Never Sees A Pretty Girl That He Doesn't Love Her A Little", "The World Is Against You", "Soft And Sleep", "Alone, For A Moment", "I Will Hold The Tea Bag" and more.

Tropicalia In Furs/World Psychedelic Classics, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $7.99 17.98
A fuzzed out treasure trove of rare Brazilian psychedelia – wild stuff that's in many ways akin to the freewheeling sounds of the Tropicalia movement, but not necessarily taking on the cultural and political weight of that movement – and more about the boundless spirit of psychedelia and funk rock around the globe! The sounds are buzzing and indeed fuzzy throughout, ranging from raw and ramshackle guitar jams to more organ and drum driven funky, and it's really incredible stuff all around. We've been purveyors of hard to find Brazilian music for many many years, and this set – compiled by Joel Stones who also provides the richly detailed – brings to light some numbers we've never heard! 16 tracks in all: "Tema De Banana", "Era Uma Nota De" Loyce E Os Gnomes, "I Wanna Be Your Man" by Youngsters, "Ourico" by Serguei, "Lindo Sonho Delirante" by Fabio, "Cinturao De Fog" by Marisa Rossi, 'Som Imaginario De Jimmi Hendrix" by The Pops, "The Lantern" by Mac Rybell and more.

Nashboro/Third Man, 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $16.99
A fantastic collection of postwar gospel recordings from the legendary Nashboro Records – one of the most important imprints for the music back in the 50s and 60s! We rank the work of Nashboro right up with the famous Houston-bred productions of Peacock Records – and as Peacock was part of the secular soul label Duke, Nashboro was also part of the blues powerhouse Excello – which means that the cuts here are put together at a level that's maybe got as much understanding of the needs of the record racks and jukebox scene, as they are aimed at the higher ideals of the lyrics! Nashboro excelled especially in the sorts of small vocal groups that can make gospel singles from this time every bit as much a slice of harmony heavy as rare doo wop tracks – and titles here include "Seven Angels" by The Trumpeteers, "Just One Step" by Little Johnny Jones & The Little Jones Singers, "I Received My Blessing" by Radio Four, "Touch Me Lord Jesus" by Angelic Gospel Singers, "Give Me My Flowers" by The Consolers, "I Would Not Be A Sinner" by Dixie Nightingales, "Jesus Keeps Me Alive" by The Skylarks, "Sit Down Servant" by Swanee Quintet, "When Jesus Stays Home" by Southern Echoes Singers, and "Rest From My Labor" by Supreme Angels. 16 cuts in all – and very nicely done!

A very groovy little set of modern Brazilian tunes – all put together in a package designed to promote the Havaianas sandal company! We can hardly fault the footwear origins of the collection, though – because the overall track list is totally great, and filled with loads and loads of tunes that are fresh to our ears – which is a real compliment, considering how much Brazilian music we listen to! Older Brazilian styles come nicely into contact with modern dancefloor touches – mixing samba, bossa, and other modes into a blend that's fresh and lively, yet still relatively pure and organic – and not some weak-assed "Brazilian remix" sort of cliche. Titles inlcude "Voz De Alegria" by Joao and Caetano Veloso, "O Claro Dos Relampagos" by Olivia, "Baronesa" by Dinho Nascimento, "Serrado" by Grooveria, "Varrido De Amor" by Marco Andre, "Comigo Mesmo" by Lu Horta, "Am" by Zemaria, "Nao E Gente Nao" by Carlos Careqa, "O Prazer" by Giana Viscardi, and "Nhem Nhem Nhem" by Fenix.

Unreleased work from Edwards Generation – a great San Francisco funk group from the 70s – and one who've reached legendary status over the years, even though their only other full length is pretty darn rare! These guys came to the Bay Area from Pittsburgh, and showed up a few years after Sly & The Family Stone made their first big waves – yet they also seem to work at a level that continues the great spirit of that group – a warmly collaborative approach to funky soul, with lots of tight rhythms at the core, deft musicianship, and a really spontaneous, joyful sort of vibe! The music here shifts a bit as the recordings move from the 70s into the 80s – showing maybe a bit more influence of west coast funk in the mix, but at a level that's still really great overall – and definitely not nearly as commercial as their contemporaries, so that most of the music still feels like funky 45s from the mid 70s. Titles include "Stop All Your Fooling", "Runaway", "Girl Don't Take Your Love From Me", "The Love I Found In You", "Choosing You", 'Get On The Dancefloor", "Do What You Wanna Do", "You Can Do It", and "Falling".

EMI/Polysom (Brazil), 1972. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A landmark album from Milton Nascimento – not only a set that really marked his growth as a singer, songwriter, and overall musical visionary – but also a record that really showcased the collaborative spirit that would be a part of his music for years to come! The album features Milton with his "corner club" – an elite group of musicians and songwriters from the early days of his career – including greats like Lo Borges and Wagner Tiso – who'd already contributed to his music, but really get a chance to stand in the spotlight here. Borges is particularly fantastic, and shines on the massively beautiful cut "Tudo Que Voce Podia Ser", which begins the album – and which is still one of the best Nascimento cuts all these many years later! The sound of the record is impossible to describe adequately – but it's got a fantastically soulful vibe, soaring and joyous, and really expanded through the participation of the other rich talents. The vocals are mixed perfectly, and the songwriting's brilliant all the way through – and titles include "San Vincete", "Lila", "Paisagem Da Janela", "Cravo E Canela", "Tudo Que Voce Podia Ser", "Os Povos", "Nada Sera Como Antes", "Um Gosto De Sol", and "O Trem Azul".

Richly soulful work from Milton Nascimento – music created at the same time as his classic albums in the 70s – but as the soundtrack to a ballet, which makes for a nice change from the usual! The approach is similar to Milton's studio work, but maybe even a bit more heavenly too – a sophisticated, yet soulful blend of instrumentation and vocals – baroque yet touched with the straightforwardness of rock, and never overly complicated, despite the nature of the setting. The work is essential if you like any of Milton's mid 70s studio albums – and performers on the project include both Joao Donato and Wagner Tiso on keyboards, Nelson Angelo and Beto Guedes on guitar, Paulo Moura on saxes, and Helcio Milito on percussion – true Brazilian instrumental heavyweights, who more than keep up with the complexity and charm of the music. Nascimento is also in the lineup, and adds some of his vocals too – on titles that include "Maria Maria", "Lilia", "A Chamada", "Pai Grande", "Seducao", "Francisco", "Boca A Boca", "De Repente Maria Sumiu", and "Francisco".

✨✧ Black NastyTalking To The People (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Enterprise/4 Men With Beards, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Excellent heavy funk from Stax! Black Nasty were one of the heaviest groups on the label – with a rock-solid guitar-based groove that went even farther than the Bar-Kays, who were no slouch in the guitar department themselves! The grooves are all slow to midtempo, with the band coming down hard on the downbeats, jamming away in a style that sounds more like heavy Detroit Westbound than sweetly soulful Memphis. Most all cuts have vocals – sung in a shouting style by the band that works well with the tripped-out hooks of the songs. This was the only album the band ever cut, but it's become a fast favorite among those who like their funk raw. Tracks include "We're Doin Our Thing", "Rushin Sea", "Booger The Hooker", "Black Nasty Boogie", "Nasty Soul", and "Getting Funky Round Here". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Lizzy Mercier DesclouxMambo Nassau (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Ze/Light In The Attic, 1980. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really funked-up batch of dancefloor tunes – produced with a uniquely cross-cultural approach! Ze Records diva Lizzy Mercier Descloux works here with influential post-disco, post-punk producer Steve Stanely – on a set of tunes cut in Nassau, with some great backing by a combo that includes Wally Badarou on keyboards. The resulting groove takes the skittish pan-club sound of the early 80s Ze Records scene, and infuses it with the hippest take on Jamaican rhythms of the time – resulting in a groundbreaking batch of tunes that were years ahead of their time! Titles include "Room Mate", "Sports Spootnicks", "Payola", "Funky Stuff", "Slipped Disc", "Lady O K'Pete", and "Bim Bam Boum". CD features bonus tracks "Maita", "Mister Soweto", "Sun Is Shining", "Don't You Try To Stop Me", and "Corpo Molli Pau Duro". CD

✨✧ Milton NascimentoGeraes (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
EMI (Brazil), 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Beautiful stuff – and one of Milton Nascimento's greatest albums of the 70s! The style here is a bit more subdued than on some of his later work – but in a way that's really majestic and soulful, showing the further development of Milton's unique idiom as he becomes one of the cornerstones of 70s MPB. There's a sense of power here that's very subtle, but which is pure Nascimento all the way – a maturing approach to both songwriting and singing that are light years from the music of Brazil a decade before. Filled with great material – and includes the tracks "Caldera" and "Circo Marimbondo", both of which have a nice swinging groove, plus "Viver De Amor", "Carro De Boi", "Fazenda", "Volver A Los 17", and "Minas Geraes". CD also features the bonus cuts "Primerio De Maio" and "O Cio Da Terra", which (we think) were only available before as singles! CD
