Philips, Mid/Late 60s. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Righteous and soulful! The work that Nina Simone did at Philips is among some of her best work ever – and this set features 10 great cuts that aren't always that easy to find on wax. Includes the anthemic feminist classic "Four Women", the slightly-funky "Mississippi Goddam", the moody "Wild Is The Wind", the righteous "Break Down & Let It All Out", and the heavenly version of "I Loves You, Porgy", which just about surpasses all other recorded versions!

✨✧ VariousPopular Electronics – Early Dutch Electronic Music From Philips Research Laboratories 1956-1963 ... CD
Basta (Netherlands), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 4CD's ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An incredible collection of obscure early electronic work – lavishly packaged and sounding wonderful! The 4CD box brings together experimental recordings from the laboratories of Philips electronics – the same Philips involved in the record and stereo business in the 50s, 60s, and 70s – and a unique company with a very scientific approach to everything they did. About 3/4 of the tracks on the set are from commercially-issued albums – experimental electronics, mood music, ballet, and film music – by composers that include Tom Dissevelt, Kid Baltan, Henk Badings, and Dick Raaijmakers. Another full CD of work has never been issued before – and was pulled from the tapes of Philips for this massive project. The whole thing's incredible – with lots of spare, spooky analogue electronics – taken to a level that seems far greater than that of any Americans working in electronic music at the time. The box includes 4 separate CDs, packaged in "tape cover" packages – plus 7 (!) separate books, each detailing a different aspect of the music, as well as bonus fold-out bits, scores, credits, and even some stickers! Tremendous work overall – a rich tapestry of sound that will unlock your mind as well as your ears – all packaged with the greatness of Basta! CD

✨✧ Peter WeverInside Le Corbusier's Philips Pavilion – A Multimedial Space At The 1958 Brussels World's Fair (hardcover) ... Book
nai 010 (Belgium), 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful document of an equally beautiful architectural triumph – the Le Courbusier-designed pavillion for Philips electronics at the 1958 Brussels World's Fair – not just a corporate showpiece, but also home to the stunning experimental film Le Poeme Electronique, which featured music from composer Edgar Varese! The outside of the structure is pictured on the cover here – and in many other details inside – and the inside of the structure is featured as well, with images both from the film, and the stunned visitors inside – as the book lays out not just Courbusier's intentions with the building, but also the cultural creativity that went into its contents, the responses of both the audiences and Philips corporation, and the legacy of the work after the fair was over. The book is 166 pages, hardcover, with full color images throughout. Book

BelchiorAlucinacao (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Philips/Polysom (Brazil), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $34.99 39.99
A classic bit of 70s MPB from Belchior – one of the biggest Brazilian singers of the scene at the time, but one who gets some wonderfully thoughtful, sensitive sounds here – thanks to help from arranger Jose Roberto, who also plays organ and piano on the set! The music has a soulful, easygoing vibe that's very much in the legacy that Milton Nascimento introduced to the scene – complete with some nicely jazzy flourishes on the keyboards, which underscore the sophistication in the lyrics as well! Yet as with the best Brazilian albums of this nature, all the complexity never comes on too strong – the whole thing's very down to earth and personal. Titles include "Alucinacao", "Nao Level Flores", "Sujeito De Sorte", "Apenas Um Rapaz Latino Americano", "Como O Diabo Gosta", and "Fotografia 3 x 4". LP, Vinyl record album

A landmark recording that is one of Jorge Ben's best albums ever! The album is a perfect realization of the way that Jorge mixes Brazilian rhythms with choppy Afro grooves – and the result is a masterpiece that yeilded some of his biggest tracks ever. Included here is the great choppy funk track "Ponta De Lanca", plus loads of other goodies like "O Filosofo", "Xica Da Silva", "A Historia De Jorge", and a great remake of "Taj Mahal" – probably his greatest cut ever. Great all the way through – and is a perfect introduction to Jorge Ben if you don't know his work, and an essential addition to your collection if you do! LP, Vinyl record album

Jorge BenBen ... LP
Philips (Brazil), 1972. Near Mint- ... $149.99
A stunner of a record from the mighty Jorge Ben – and a record that catapulted the Brazilian singer to international fame at the time! Ben had already been making magic for almost a decade down in Brazil – and his compositions and grooves left an undeniable impact on the scene in the post-bossa years – but this album has Jorge really emerging as the global soul star he was destined to be – from his powerful stare on the cover, right down to the grit in the grooves! The sound here is a refinement of the samba soul mode that Ben had been brewing up from the late 60s onward – a skittish mix of older samba elements, American soul, and some slight fuller production that really comes into its own here – mixing all the acoustic elements at the core with just a slight electric flourish, but never losing its edge in the process – all to provide Jorge with a sublime backdrop for his really amazing vocals. The set's a monument in funky Brazilian soul – and it includes the huge hit "Taj Mahal", which still sounds great, even after all these years – plus loads of other gems that include "O Circo Chegou", "Domingo 23", "Fio Maravilha", "Paz E Arroz", "Morre O Burro Fico O Homem", and "Que Nega E Essa". A gem all the way through – and a record we'd never part with! LP, Vinyl record album

Jorge BenJorge Ben (1969) ... CD
Philips (Brazil), 1969. Used ... $14.99
A samba soul masterpiece from Jorge Ben – one of the most brilliant records to come out the fertile late 60s Brazilian scene – and an incredible album that works with the psychedelic flourishes of Ben's contemporaries and a deeper undercurrent of soul & funk! This is one of the most amazing early Jorge Ben LPs, recorded at the end of the 60s, when Jorge was singing with a stone-cold soul sound. The sharp, tight arrangements by Rogerio Duprat & Jose Briamonte made tracks like "Pais Tropical", "Take It Easy My Brother Charles", and "Que Pena" immediate classics – while the percussion and rhythms of Trio Mocoto provide a good part of the unique backdrop. The album is a mix of funky samba, soaring Brazilian soul, and sweeping orchestrations that give the whole thing a jazzy finish – and it's some of the best work that Jorge Ben ever recorded! Other tracks include "Criola", Cade Tereza", "Domingas", "Barbarella", "Quem Foi Que Roubou A Sopeira" and more. CD

Philips/Polysom (Brazil), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $34.99 39.99
A seminal set from Jorge Ben – one that mixes samba soul with more baroque arrangements from the legendary Arthur Verocai! The record's got a different feel than some of Jorge's other work – almost a wider vision of music that ties his usual funky style to some of the more ambitious modes being explored by Marcos Valle and Edu Lobo at the time – expressed here in some larger instrumental passages that shade the tunes lightly, while still letting Jorge step out strongly on vocals and the usual mix of tight percussion and raspy guitar. Titles include "Que Maravilha", "Rita Jeep", "Comanche", "Porque E Proibido Pisa Na Grama", "Cassius Marcelo Clay", "Palomaris", "Maria Domingas", and "Negro E Lindo". LP, Vinyl record album

Philips/Polysom (Brazil), 1963. New Copy (reissue)... $34.99 39.99
The start of an amazing legacy in Brazilian music – and a record that really lives up to its title! Jorge Ben completely reinvents the samba here – and comes up with his own new groove in the process – by blending sharp acoustic guitar lines with rootsy percussion – all at a level that's far more rhythmic than the used of the instrument in bossa nova. There's definitely a bossa element – but Joao's singing is a lot more soulful, as is the overall performance – and the styles started here not only launched Ben's career, but also had a huge influence on generations of musicians to come! Titles include the sublime original version of "Mas Que Nada" - plus "Tim Dom Dom", "Chove Chuva", "A Tamba", "Balanca Pema", and "Rosa Menina Rosa". Great stuff, and essential all the way through – we promise! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jorge BenSolta O Pavao ... LP
Philips (Brazil), 1975. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
An overlooked treasure from the great Jorge Ben – an album recorded between the fame of his "Taj Mahal" hit and Africa Brasil classic – and a set that's every bit as wonderful as those two records! There's a tight, choppy groove to most of the set – that mix of samba, soul, and currents of American funk that Jorge created in his music – turned here towards some of the unusual themes that showed up on his Tabua De Esmeralda album, but maybe given a bit more punch, too – so that even without the benefit of language, the vocals and grooves on the set are completely captivating to a global audience! There's loads of fresh sounds here – some real under-discovered gems from Jorge's key 70s years – and titles include "Cuidado Com O Bulldog", "Zagueiro", "Para Ouvir No Radio (Luciana)", "Jorge De Capadocia", "Dumingaz", "Se Segura Malandro", and "Jesualda".

A later album from Jane B, but one that's still pretty darn groovy, thanks to arrangements from Alan Hawkshaw! The overall sound is somewhat in keeping with the date – keyboards and rhythms that sound more 80s than 70s – but the tunes themselves have all the breathy, sensual qualities of Birkin's best work with Serge Gainsbourg from years back – no surprise, given that Serge wrote all the tunes in the set! As before, the combination of Birkin and Gainsbourg is hard to resist – still the standard by which so much other work like this should be judged – on either side of the Atlantic. Titles include "Overseas Telegram", "Rupture Au Miroir", "Haine Pour Aime", and "Norma Jean Baker". CD

Chico BuarqueChico Canta (aka Calabar, O Elogio Da Traicao) ... CD
Philips (Brazil), 1973. Used ... $19.99
What a dream! The work of Chico Buarque is arranged by Edu Lobo – and the sound is fantastic! We've always loved Chico's songwriting from this period – but it's made even better by Edu, who's working here in a sharp jazzy mode, similar to that which he used on his Missa Breve album from 1972. Arrangements are big and baroque, and the approach to the material opens things up a lot more than usual – especially from Chico's late 60s albums that are more in a "singer with orchestra mode". All tracks feature music by Ruy Guerra, whose style works very well with Lobo's sound – and Chico has a sweet edge in his voice that pushes things even further. Titles include "Prologo", "Barbara", "Ana De Amsterdam", "Fado Tropical", "Fortaleza", "Cobra De Vidro", "Nao Existe Pecado Ao Sul Do Equador/Boi Voador Nao Pode", and "Tatuagem". CD

Chico pays tribute to a host of other Brazilian composers – but he manages to make the work entirely his own, thanks to a deeply personal approach! Styles here run the gamut from samba to sophisticated, often handled with slightly jazzy undercurrent – and backings are by Perinho Albuquerque, in a warm mode that sometimes has fuller flute, guitar, and percussion – but which also drops out at times to give the record a much more intimate approach. Tunes are written by Tom Jobim, Gilberto Gil, Noel Rosa, Nelson Cavaquinho, Vinicius De Moraes, and Sebastiao Nunes – and titles include "Festa Imodesta", "Filosofia", "Cuidado Com A Outra", "Lagrima", "Voce Nao Sabe Amar", "Ligia", and "Sem Compromisso".

A fantastic soundtrack recorded in the immediate post-Tropicalia years – featuring some of the best early 70s work by Chico Buarque, Nara Leao, Maria Bethania, and others! The cover has a mad image with Buarque, Leao, and Bethania in top hats and shiny uniforms – and the music follows up with a similarly lively spirit – samba-esque, with other touches of rock and jazz production that give the work an expansive and trippy feel. Roberto Menescal handled the arrangements – and titles include "Cacada" by Chico Buarque, "Mais Uma Estrela" by Nara Leao, "Soneto" by Orquesta De Cordas, "Soneto" by Nara Leao, "Partido Alto" by MPB-4, "Formosa" by Nara Leao & Maria Bethania, "Baioque" by Maria Bethania, and "Cantores De Radio" by Chico, Naria, and Maria together!

Erasmo Carlos sounds even cooler here than usual – still working with tunes penned with his brother Roberto – but also taking on music by Caetano Veloso, Jorge Ben, and Marcos Valle too! There's a heady undercurrent to the record that's maybe a filtering-through of an earlier Tropicalia vibe – a mode that Erasmo never embraced, but which leaves its impression in some of the more striking arrangements here – especially in the way things trip out at all the best times! Fuzzy guitar and offbeat production really add a lot to the set – and titles include "Maria Joana", "Agora Ninguem Chora Mais", "26 Anos De Vida Normal", "Cica Cecilia", "Mundo Deserto", "Sodoma E Gomorra", "Masculino Feminio", and "De Noite Na Cama".

Oscar Castro NevesBossa Nova Mesmo (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Philips/Universal (Japan), 1960. Used ... $38.99
A rare bossa treasure from the early years of the genre – a wicked session that features instrumentation by Oscar Castro Neves, and vocals by a host of different singers! The set's half vocal, half instrumental – and the latter feature some great sounds from Oscar's combo – a group that plays with a sound that's airy, yet well-arranged – similar to some of the 60s work by Eumir Deodato or Os Gatos, but with less instrumentation overall – which makes for an even cooler sound! There's some great flute in the group, which sounds great next to the acoustic guitar – and the instrumentation for the vocal tracks is equally nice, and still really revolutionary for the time. The album's a beautiful balance between complexity and understatement – truly showing the bossa ethos at its best – and titles include "Patinho Feio" and "Com Voce" by Lais, "Pela Luz Dos Olhos Teus" by Vinicius De Moraes, "Obrigada Meu Bem" by Sylvia Telles, "Tem Do De Mim" by Carlos Lyra, and "Menina Feia" by Lucio Alves – plus "Meditacao", "So Em Teus Bracos", "Bim Bom", and "Chora Tua Tristeza" by Castro Neves and his combo.

Graham CollierDown Another Road/Songs For My Father/Mosaics ... CD
Fontana/Philips/BGO (UK), 1969/1970/1971. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99 19.99
3 incredible albums from the British jazz scene at the end of the 60s – all together in one 2CD package! Down Another Road is incredible work from one of England's greatest jazz talents – bassist Graham Collier, a player with an amazing ability to absorb a lot of the modern and progressive influences of his jazz generation – but all without succumbing to the same indulgences as them – a fact which resulted in a razor-sharp style that forged some of the freshest jazz ever to come out of the UK. This 1969 album is a masterpiece – filled with a modal groove and a strident searching theme, yet also as tight and grooving as most of the best Blue Note sessions from the same time. Harry Beckett's on trumpet, Nick Evans is on trombone, John Marshall plays drums, and Stan Sulzmann handles the reeds. Tracks include "Down Another Road", "Danish Blue", "The Barley Mow", and "Aberdeen Angus". Songs For My Father is a masterpiece of modernist soul jazz, with a sound that recalls the best late Blue Note work by Lee Morgan or Hank Mobley. Alan Wakeman's tenor is perfectly pitched, and searingly searching; Harry Beckett's trumpet is round, lyrical, and filled with soul; and the piano of John Taylor comps along in chunky modal grooves that make the whole album fall together brilliantly. Tracks include "Song One", "Song Two", "Song Three", etc – and they're all fantastic! Mosaics is a wonderfully searching session – filled with warm McCoy Tyner-esque modal moments, and searing post-Coltrane solos! The album comprises one long piece – Collier's "Mosaics" – performed live by a group that includes Alan Wakeman on tenor and soprano, Harry Beckett on trumpet, and Geoff Castle on piano. "Mosaics" has that amazing mid 60s Coltrane quality of going out in a spiritual kind of way – yet always returning to the groove, never getting too free, and always remaining firmly focused on the direction ahead. All players are great, and the record crackles with the intensity of a classic session on Impulse! CD

Philips (Brazil), 1971. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
An incredible live album from Gal Costa – one that's easily as great as any of her studio albums from the time! But unlike the studio albums, the style here is quite spare and intimate – a very personal presentation of Gal's music, recorded in a way that has her starting out nearly solo at the start, then adding in band members as the concert rolls on. The first portion of the performance mostly features acoustic guitar and Gal's vocals – in a style that's a bit like late 60s Nara Leao or Maria Bethania – but the second half gets more electric, often with some trippier Tropicalia touches! Titles include "Falsa Baiana", "Coracao Vagabundo", "Como 2 e 2", "Hotel Das Estrelas", "Mal Secreto", "Assum Preto", "Antonico", "Sua Estupidez", "Fruta Gogoia", and "Perola Negro".

Philips/Universal (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $13.99
Light and lively work from the great Gal Costa – a set that's light years away from her Tropicalia experiments of a decade before, but which is equally beautiful in its own sort of way! First off, Gal's vocals are amazing – more expressive and dynamic than in the early days – with a range of different emotions that comes off wonderfully, and without some of the heaviness of some of her contemporaries – such as Maria Bethania. The arrangements, while not entirely tropical, mix together jazz choro modes with more contemporary touches – providing a surprisingly strong, sparkling backdrop for the lyrics! The album features a nice remake of "India", plus the tracks "Forca Estranha", "Olha", "Meu Nome E Gal", "Balance", and "Samba Rasgado". CD

Gilberto Gil is the musical director here – with help from Rogerio Duprat and Arthur Verocai – and the album's got the lofty feel you'd expect from all three talents – a rich blend of all the modern developments in Brazilian music that had taken place in the 60s, but infused with a newly rootsy sense as well – one that takes the whole thing back to a personal, expressive territory that's really wonderful. Instrumentationincludes work on keyboards by Wagner Tiso and Tenorio Jr, plus a bit of guitar from Roberto Menescal – and Gal does a great version of Caetano Veloso's "Relance" – alongside other tracks that include "Passarinho", "Da Maior Imortancia", "India", "Volta", and the funky "Pontos De Luz". The whole thing's incredibly beautiful – and it's got Gal in a wild bikini cover, too! CD

Philips/We Are Busy Bodies (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $19.99 32.99
A wonderful album of early analogue electronics – originally issued with a title that billed it as "an astronaut's reflections while visiting the earth"! The sound here is way more outside than that, though – almost more as if the astronaut was an alien – with weird, spooky sounds that are mindblowing, and years ahead of their time – a great example of the kind of forward-thinking music Dissevelt was making back in the 60s. Some tracks have stark bleeps and pings, others are more low-end and atmospheric, and together the whole thing feels much more like some serious electronic experiment than any sort of kiddie space age set! Titles include "Woomerangs", "Ignition", "Spearhead", "Zanzi", "Anchor Chains", "Re-Entry", "Mexican Mirror", and "Pacific Dawn". LP, Vinyl record album

Strings, piano, and other instrumentation – all wrapped up with a dark sense of power in this heavenly little album from the legendary Luiz Eca – a set that really takes off from his Tamba 4 albums on CTI! The style here is a sophisticated, but never sleepy – and really lets Eca show off some of the more modern modes that were coming to the forefront in his work – arrangements that easily rival some of the most complex coming out of Europe or the US at the time, but still cast with a bossa-inspired sense of space and sound that balances fullness with focus in a really wonderful way! Roberto Menescal produced, and the overall sound is completely wonderful – a new level of advancement in Brazilian music, carried out perfectly throughout! Titles include "Sa Marina", "O Sonho", "Oferenda", "Cantador", "Zazueira", "Se Voce Pensa", "Pais Tropical", and "Juliana". CD

Soaring strings and bossa piano – a tremendous combination in the hands of Luiz Eca – working here at a time when the arranger was first making his name with the Tamba Trio! The set's one of Eca's gems from the 60s under his own name – and it's got a style that echoes the mix of darkness and sweet he forged with the trio, but which also shows a deeper, more sophisticated approach to the music – fuller orchestrations, yet handled with a sense of space and timing that's really amazing – at a level that almost beats Jobim at his own game at the time! Eca's piano is recorded beautifully – tinkling over the top of the backings, and always getting plenty of its own space – and titles include "Amando", "Quase Um Adeus", "Saudade", "Cheganca", "Velho Pescador", "Cancao Da Terra", and "A Morte De Um Deus De Sal".

Serge GainsbourgAux Armes Et Caetera ... CD
Philips (France), 1979. New Copy ... $9.99 14.99
A great little album from Serge – possibly his last truly genius record, and one with a very unusual twist! The album was recorded in Jamaica with production from Sly & Robbie – very much in the late 70s, big-business reggae mode – but done with Serge's usual flair for the lyric. The album's not really a reggae album – more a set of dubby tracks that have a similar feel to some of Serge's other backings during the 70s, with whispered sexy lyrics over the top. The record shouldn't work, but it does – and picks up a sound that's similar to Serge's work on the excellent album L'Homme A Tete Chou! Titles include "Relax Baby Be Cool", "Daisy Temple", "Javanaise Remake", "Pas Long Feu", and "Marilou Reggae Dub". CD

Fantastic stuff – and a record that may well be the greatest ever from the mighty Serge Gainsbourg – high praise indeed, considering the greatness of Gainsbourg's other music! The album is one long suite built around a spare, electric bass-driven theme – a slow funk riff that's been sampled countless times over the years, and which has gotten the album continuous play on both sides of the Atlantic for many many years. The mighty Jean-Claude Vannier handles the arrangements, and Serge mutters the lyrics over the top, in a raspy loud whisper – while the funky rhythms dart in and out of odd washes of sound, and unusual eerie sounds. There's a very strong soundtrack feel to the album, as waves of music envelop the lyrics – tripped out in funky beats that have become legendary over the years, thanks to some very famous samples! Titles include "En Melody", "Cargo Culte", "Ballade De Melody Nelson", "Valse De Melody", "Ah! Melody", and "L'Hotel Particulier". CD

Backings are by the great Alain Gouraguer, who gives the record a tightly jerking kind of feel – a sound that's the Paris contribution to the same sort of mod grooves that were coming out of the London scene at the time. The album's filled with classics by Gall, all sung in a sweet voice that's a great contrast to the music – wonderful stuff throughout, with titles that include "Baby Pop", "Cet Air La", "L'Amerique", "Mon Bateau De Nuit", and "Deux Oiseaux".

A bold leap forward from Gilberto Gil – his first album recorded during the Tropicalia years, and an amazing collaboration with arranger Rogerio Duprat! The album's got a sound that really bridges scenes in Brazil – elements of older folkloric musics, folded with samba rhythms, folded again with psychedelic touches from Os Mutantes – who also help out on the set – all wrapped together with a sound so revolutionary, it still crackles with energy all these many years later! The sound and style are impossible to describe accurately, which is part of the charm of the record – and it's key placement as one of the prime musical texts of the Tropicalia years. Titles include "Marginalia II", "Luzia Luluza", "Pega A Voga, Cabeludo", "Frevo Rasgado", "Domingou", and "Domingo No Parque".

The rare 3rd album by Gilberto Gil, and a key piece of the Tropicalia puzzle – one of the most wildly experimental albums from those years, and Gil's last before going into exile! The sound is much more electric than his other albums from the late 60's – and the production, songwriting, and instrumentation get very crazy at times – but never too crazy to cover up Gilberto's excellent singing, which is still as filled with feeling as ever. Arrangements are by the mighty Rogerio Duprat, who does as great a job here of balancing Gil's sensitivities as he does on Gal Costa's sublime efforts from 1969 – and the instrumentation is a weird and wonderful mix of Bahian rhythms, fuzzy guitar, and crazy electronics – all heartfelt one minute, freaked out the next. Tracks include "Cerebro Eletronico", "Volks Volkswagen Blue", "Futurivel", and "2001", which was written by Tom Ze and Rita Lee – plus the wild cut "Objecto Semi-Identificado", which is sort of a John Cage-esque track of found radio and electronics, with vocals by Gil!

Philips/Water, 1971. New Copy ... $7.99 17.98
A rare British recording from Gilberto Gil – sung completely in English, and recorded while living in London, in political exile along with Caetano Veloso! The album's somewhat similar to Veloso's famous London album from 1971 – certainly in structure, as the backings are relatively stripped-down, and mostly feature acoustic guitar, bass, and percussion, alongside Gil's English lyrics. But the record's somewhat different too – in that it's got a brighter, more redemptive feel – almost an indication that Gilberto's time abroad hadn't been such a terrible thing – especially given that the record is a new creative departure in his music! The English lyrics are really a treat – and are sometimes sung as a broken strand of familiar words, trying to work themselves together into a fragile tapestry of emotion – sometimes succeeding, sometimes not – but always beautiful, and always filled with the emotion of his experiences in exile! Titles include "Volkswagen Blues", "The Three Mushrooms", "Babylon", "Nega (Photograph Blues)", and "Mamma" – plus 3 bonus cuts: "Can't Find My Way Home", "Up From The Skies", and a great version of "Sgt.

First up is his self-titled album from 1968, a bold leap forward for Gil – his first album recorded during the Tropicalia years, and an amazing collaboration with arranger Rogerio Duprat! The album's got a sound that really bridges scenes in Brazil – elements of older folkloric musics, folded with samba rhythms, folded again with psychedelic touches from Os Mutantes – who also help out on the set – all wrapped together with a sound so revolutionary, it still crackles with energy all these many years later!

Dizzy GillespieDizzy On The French Riviera/New Wave ... CD
Philips/Essential Jazz (Spain), 1962. Used ... $6.99
60s cookers from Dizzy Gillespie – back to back on a single CD! New Wave is a lost bossa jazz classic from Dizzy Gillespie – recorded at a time when Lalo Schifrin was working in his combo! The record's got a cool, laidback kind of groove – one that's miles away from Gillespie's earlier bop work, and which shows him opening up his rhythmic conception strongly in the 60s. Rhythms are percolated by the piano of Schifrin, guitar of Bola Sete, bass of Chris White, and some well-chosen added percussion work – and the overall groove is one of the best American takes on the bossa jazz sound of the time, delivered with wonderful horn work from Dizzy on trumpet, Leo Wright on flute and alto, and Charlie Ventura on tenor! Even familiar tunes are transformed by the sound – and titles include "In A Shanty In Old Shanty Town", "Careless Love", "Taboo", "One Note Samba", "Pergunte Ao Joao", and "Chega de Saudade". On The French Riviera isn't really French, but actually a killer batch of Latiny tinged tracks from Dizzy & Co – with with great arrangements by Lalo Schifrin! There's a wonderful 10 minute version of "Chega De Saudade", done as "No More Blues" to start it out, and it's got a great loping Latin vibe, in the manner of Dizzy's best sides from the 60s. Lalo's on piano, and the great Leo Wright is on flute and alto, with Tzigane Elek Bacsik on guitar, Chris White on bass, Ruby Collins on drums and Pepitoo Riestria on percussion. Other nice ones include "Long Long Summer", "Desafinado", and "Pau De Arara". A great album, and one not to pass up! CD

A wonderfully trippy group from late 60s Chicago! Like so many groups of their time, HP Lovecraft have their roots in the later years of the folk scene – where they clearly picked up a sense of free being and personal expression. Yet unlike so many other groups, who turned that energy into a warmer, sunshiney approach, Lovecraft really kept on the dark end of the spectrum – in a spacey, tripped-out mode that was very much in keeping with their name. There's almost a Love-like sense of madness to some of these tunes – but a bit less focused and baroque – and by the time of the group's second album, they were actually de-intensifying their sound a bit, creating more space and a sense of stark loneliness that's really compelling!

Given that Nara's groundbreaking work of the late 60s was almost a challenge to the female bossa singers of the time, the shift's a bit unusual – but also maybe has Nara coming full circle, especially as she brings that wonderful balance of emotion from the early years into play with this music.

A wild solo project from Rita Lee – done after the breakup of Os Mutantes, and offered up almost as some sort of commentary on mainstream rock in the 70s! There's a much more straightforward approach to the music here – a sometimes-glammy sound that's echoed by the band's space-style costumes and makeup – but there's also some weirdly old-style rock instrumentation too, almost like the way that an artist like Gary Glitter could fold the 50s and 70s together in his music, and come across making something very weird and new. Here, the keyboards are almost stronger than the guitars – and Rita herself plays moog, melotron, organ, and piano – on titles that include "Tem Uma Cidade", "Menino Bonito", "Mame Natureza", and "Eclipse Do Cometa".

Les Troubadours Du Roi Baudouin are an ensemble of young singers with a very joyous sort of feel – one that works equally well for the traditional numbers, and for the new recasting of the mass which takes up the second half of the record.

A gem of a later album from the great Edu Lobo – very different than his bossa recordings, and with a sophisticated jazzy vibe that perfectly illustrates all the growth he'd achieved during the 70s! The songs are wonderful – complex and yet really personal, with a quality that rivals some of the best from the Milton Nascimento/Lo Borges camp of the time. And like those, there's a jazzy quality to the instrumentation that really keeps things fresh – lots of contributions from musicians like Wagner Tiso on keyboards, Paulo Moura on reeds, Antonio Adolfo on piano, and Dori Caymmi on guitar. Backing vocals are by Boca Livre and MPB4 – but it's Edu's honest lead vocals that really send the whole thing home – sparkling wonderfully on tunes that include "Canudos", "Coracao Noturno", "Sanha De Mandinga", "Lero Lero", "Camaleo", "Bate Boca", and "O Trenzinho do Capira".

Edu Lobo & Tom JobimEdu & Tom (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1981. Used ... $11.99
An incredible later meeting by two of the most sophisticated musical talents of the bossa generation – and a record that's done in the same intimate, spare setting as Jobim's meeting with Elis Regina a few years before! Production is by bossa legend Aloysio De Oliveira – and the sound is relatively clean and simple – often just a bit of piano, guitar, and percussion behind the up-close and personal vocals of the tunes. Lobo & Jobim sing together on most of the record – in a double-voiced style that's almost a bit like that used on Jobim's incredible Matita Pere record from the 70s. Edu sings solo on "Chovendo Na Roseira", Tom sings solo on "Angela" – and the pair duet on the tracks "Canto Triste", "Vento Bravo", "Moto Continuo", "Pra Dizer Adeus", "Ai Quem Me Dera", and "Luiza".

Carlos LyraBossa Nova/Carlos Lyra (1960) ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1960. Used ... $18.99
2 of the earliest albums ever from bossa genius Carlos Lyra – back to back on one CD! The first album, Bossa Nova, definitely lives up to its title – as it features Lyra's wonderful original compositions wrapped around a set of orchestrations that are lightly breezy, and which dance with a slight hint of jazz that often comes from the use of acoustic guitar or vibes on some tracks. The format's similar to some of Joao Gilberto's work of the time – and backings are by Carlos Monteiro De Souza. Titles are all originals by Lyra, and include "O Bem Do Amor", "Chora Tua Tristeza", "Ciume", "Barquinho De Papel", "Rapaz De Bem", "Gosto De Voce", and "Menina". The CD features a whole other album of bonus tracks as well – the similar session Carlos Lyra, also from 1960 – another showcase for Lyra's wonderful skills as a writer! The arrangements on that set are similar, and titles include "Nos Dois", "Mister Golden", "Nada Como Ter Amor", "Vem Do Amor", "Aonde Andou Voce", "De Quem Ama", and "Primeira Namorada". 26 tracks in all!

Harvey MandelGames Guitars Play ... LP
Philips, 1969. Very Good+ ... $16.99
Guitars playing plenty of games here – easy to do when in the godlike hands of Harvey Mandel – a guitarist rooted in blues, but also with lots of psychedelic inclinations as well! This album's one of Harvey's best as a solo act – and gets some sweet fuzzy production by the legendary Abe Voco Kesh – whose touches help give the record that sort of genre-stepping vibe of the best Bay Area material of the time. Harvey's guitar is firmly in the lead, but there's a bit more vocals on the set than some of the previous Mandel records – and titles include a trippy version of Horace Silver's "Senor Blues", plus "Capurange", "Ridin High", "Honky Tonk", "Leavin Trunk", and a wild stoned version of "Games People Play". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a partial bottom split, light surface wear.)

Philips/Purple Pyramid, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 6CDs ... $33.99 39.98
A wonderful run of music from the mighty Harvey Mandel – a musician whose biggest fame was his bluesy work with Canned Heat, but a guitarist who also had plenty of jazz and funk to offer as well! The set brings together Mandel's killer solo albums – Cristo Redentor, Righteous, Games Guitars Play, Baby Batter, and The Snake – each of them a wonderful blend of psychedelic styles, jazzy currents, and some nice funk touches – music that's as unique now as it was when it was recorded – which sometimes meant that Harvey's genius was lost between the cracks, because the stores and radios never knew where to put him! The set also features a rare live performance – Live At The Matrix – with tracks that are even longer and grittier than some of Mandel's studio work of the time! CD

Ney MatogrossoPersonalidade ... CD
Philips (Brazil), Early 80s. Used ... $1.99
Although Ney Matogrosso began his career as the glammed-out lead singer of Secos O Molhados – one of the most important post-Tropicalia Brazilian rock bands – he later left the group, and emerged as one of Brazil's biggest rock stars of the early 80s. Even at that point, Matogrosso still had quite an edge – as you'll hear on this set of 14 tracks from the years 1981 to 1986, with titles that include "Viajante", "Deixa A Menina", "Vereda Tropical", "Folia No Matagal", "Historia Do Brasil", and "Balada Do Louco".

Sergio MendesDance Moderno (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1959. Used ... $29.99
The fab first album by Sergio Mendes – very different than his later work! Sergio's more in a straight bossa mode here – playing with a tight little combo that features saxophone and trombone next to his own firey work on piano – tight and jazzy, and even with a few traces of US Latin grooves as well! The album's proof that Sergio was already at the top of his game in the early years – and although released at the end of the 50s, the record's got a groove that would set the scene for countless bossa jazz albums to follow! Titles include the hard groovers "Oba-La-La" and "Outra Vez", plus versions of American jazz groovers like "Nica's Dream" and "On Green Dolphin Street" – and the cuts "Tema Sem Palavras", "Disa", "Diagonal", "Love For Sale", and "Satin Doll".

Philips (France), 1980. Very Good ... $4.99
Excellent late-period Yves Montand, and a record that's produced with the same sort of smokey feel as some of the later Sinatra albums from the 70's. Yves is in a very relaxed studio setting here, and he easily slides through a nice set of easy-going tracks with the confidence of a master songsmith. Tracks include "L'Addition", "Casse-tetes", "Ellington Quarante Et One", "Dansons La Rose", and "L'Enfant E'bloui". LP, Vinyl record album

Os CariocasBossa Dos/Mais Bossa Com ... CD
Philips (Japan), Early 60s/1998. Used ... $34.99
Although not as familiar in the US as other Brazilian artists of the time, Os Cariocas were perhaps the leading vocal group of the early bossa years, and their albums were all great jazzy interpretations of bossa material, done in the same sort of 4-part male harmony perfected by the Hi-Lo's and Four Freshmen. This Japanese CD brings together 2 of their rare albums from the early 60s – A Bossa Dos and Mais Bossa Com – for a total of 24 tracks of groovy bossa harmony! We've never seen these albums before, but they're both great, and a superb addition to our growing collection of rare bossa material. Titles include "Adjinho Bossa Nova", "Tem Do", "Vivo Sonhando", "Pra Que Chorar", "Rio", "Samba Do Aviao", "Tambem, Quem Mandou", and "Telefone". Lots more goodies, and a very sharp looking set of tracks! CD

Baden PowellE De Lei (aka Images On Guitar) ... LP
Philips (Brazil), 1972. Very Good+ ... $19.99
One of Baden Powell's grooviest albums ever – a brilliant blend of his bossa roots with the freer 70s grooves of MPS! The album follows the mode of some of his other European recordings, but is still a bit different – in that the overall sound is a bit freer than before, with tracks that really open up beautifully – including one or two that hit a nicely heavy groove! The lovely Janine De Walyene sings these wonderful wordless vocals on some of the album's best tracks – scatting heavily on the famous jazz dance number "Blues A Volante" – and drifting moodily behind the guitar on other numbers. Other instrumentation includes bass, drums, and a bit of Brazilian percussion – and titles include the classic "Blues A Volante", plus "Violao Vagabundo", "Canto", "Ate Eu", and "Conversacao Comigo Mesmo".

✨✧ Quarteto Em CyAntologia Do Samba Cancao ... LP
Philips (Brazil), 1975. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
An excellent 70s album by Quarteto Em Cy – cut in a style that Philips was using with a few groups at the time. The album's a tribute to great samba songwriters of days gone by, and each track is a condensed "pot-pourri" of tunes by a particular writer – with tracks that focus on work by Carlos Lyra, Johnny Alf, Dolores Duran, Jair Amorem, Tito Madi, and Ary Barroso. The girls voices are excellent – and come together in that other-wordly harmony sound that was their unique calling card in Brazilian music. Production is great, and MPB-4 guest on one track.

Quarteto Em CyQuarteto Em Cy Interpreta – Gonzaguinha, Caetano, Ivan, Milton ... CD
Philips/Universal (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... $9.99
A really wonderful album from Quarteto Em Cy – the Brazilian vocal quartet who first rose to prominence during the bossa nova years, but soon moved into even more sophisticated material during the 70s! The approach of this set is telegraphed in the title – as the group take on songs penned by Caetano Veloso, Milton Nascimento, Ivan Lins, and Gonzaguinha – the new MPB generation of the 70s, whose music turns out to be perfect for the growing talents of the girls – topped off with some beautiful arrangements from Octavio Burnier, whose work really rises to the level of the vocals! The whole thing's great – a magnificent journey in sound – and titles include "Idolatrada", "Barco Fantasma", "Antes De Seja Tarde", "O Ultimo Trem", "Um Dia", "Ponta De Areia", "Gira Girou", "Ciranda Menina", and "Abandonado".
