Marc Moulin/PlaceboPlacebo Years – 1971 to 1974 (180 gram turquoise vinyl pressing) ... LP
EMI/Music On Vinyl (UK), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... About May 14, 2021 (delayed)
Some of the heaviest keyboard funk recorded in Europe during the early 70s – all the work of the jazz/rock combo Placebo, headed up by the legendary Marc Moulin! The tracks here are awash in Fender Rhodes and other keys – all supported by tight basslines, funky drums, and a fair bit of jazzy riffing on sax, trumpet, and flute. But the main groove always focuses around the keyboards – recorded with a spare, almost earthy quality that's a fair bit greater than some of the slicker keys that crept into the European scene a few years later. Moulin's really at the top of his game here – working in a groove that could easily rival Herbie Hancock or Bob James in the US – and unlike his Sam Suffy set, of similar vintage, this collection's all straight ahead jazz funk, with hardly a bit of experimentation! Tracks are from the albums Ball Of Eyes, 1973, and Placebo – and the set list here differs from the earlier Counterpoint collection with a similar name. 9 tracks in all – including "NW", "Balek", "SUS", "Aria", "Stomp", "Red Net", "Showbizz Suite", "Polk", and "Humpty Dumpty".

PlaceboPlacebo Live 1971 ... CD
We Release Jazz (Switzerland), 1971. New Copy ... $15.99
A never-issued live set by one of the coolest European funk bands of the 70s – the legendary Placebo – not the current group, but a vintage ensemble that features wicked work on Fender Rhodes from the mighty Marc Moulin! The 1971 date of the set places it before the combo's famous albums in the studio – and in addition to plenty of open, flowing keyboard lines from Moulin, there's also a more spiritual sound from the group as well – more jazz than funk, but never in a too-jamming way – as the whole thing retains that strong sense of space and timing that's always made Placebo so different than some of their contemporaries! There's great fluegelhorn from Richard Rousselet, soprano sax from Alex Scorier, bass clarinet from Johnny Dover, drums from Freddy Rottier, and massive basslines from Nick Kletchkovsky – which really keep things moving over the course of the album-length "Showbiz Suite" – a cool track with lots of great changes!

✨✧ Placebo/Sadi Quartet/Rene ThomasLive In Bruxelles – Jazz In Belgium – Three Days In April (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
P-Vine (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Rare work from the legendary funky group Placebo – recorded live here in a set that also features contributions from two other great Belgian acts too! Placebo dominate the first half of the record – and turn in a hard-driving performance that's heavy on Fender Rhodes from the legendary Marc Moulin – who has this way of playing that makes his keyboard lines all nice and chunky, and a perfect fit for the funky drums and tight horns on the tunes! The group's a septet, with two trumpets, two saxes, bass, and drums – all kicking out a great groove for the Rhodes, on tunes that include "Showbiz Suite", "Only Nineteen", and "Planes". Next up is strongly soulful work from vibist Fats Sadi – a player you might know from his 60s work on MPS and in the Clarke Boland Big Band – sounding great here in a quartet mode, with piano, bass and drums – ringing out out strongly on tunes that include "Burgos", "Gigi's Pad", and "Gospel Time". Last up is guitarist Rene Thomas – a player whose best-known work is from the 50s Parisian scene. Rene still sounds great here – and actually plays with a harder tone and more freewheeling vibe – in a trio with bass and drums, on the titles "Blue Tempo", "My Wife Maria", and "Chega Da Saudade".

✨✧ Placebo (Marc Moulin)Ball Of Eyes (180 gram pressing) ... LP
EMI/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A very cool little album from Placebo – arguably the group's most soulful session ever, and one that draws heavily from American funky jazz at the start of the 70s! The grooves are nice and tight, and keyboards are focused on the most soulful sort of riffs – not nearly as tripped out as in later years, and really doing a great job of sending home the funky rhythms – almost in a way that's sort of early CTI at the best points! Marc Moulin's genius is already firmly in place – and he handles all arrangements, plus plays Fender Rhodes, electric harpsichord, and even what sounds like a bit of moog! Titles include "Humpty Dumpty", "Aria", "Showbiz Suite", "Ball Of Eyes", "You Got Me Hummin", and "Inner City Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Placebo (Marc Moulin)Placebo (1973) (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
EMI/P-Vine (Japan), 1973. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Seminal sounds from Placebo – one of the hippest electric groups going on the European scene of the early 70s, thanks to some great keyboards and electronics from the legendary Marc Moulin! Placebo's sound here is a unique approach to funky jazz – one that certainly draws from the electric modes of the American scene, and without any of the jamming elements of other Euro fusion groups – but there's also a touch of rockish inflection at points too – especially in the way the rhythms have a tightly pulsating groove. There's none of the indulgence of prog, but there's definitely a lineage going on somewhere in the mix too – and in addition to Moulin's keyboards, the group also features great horns from Nick Fissette, Alex Socrier, and Richard Rousselet. Titles include "Bolkwush", "Temse", "Balek", "Phalene", "Re-Union", and "Only Nineteen". CD

✨✧ Placebo (Marc Moulin)Placebo (1974) (180 gram vinyl pressing) ... LP
EMI/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The second amazing album from Placebo – a wicked mix of funky fusion styles, and a real standout on the European scene of the early 70s! The group's the brainchild of Marc Moulin – who wrote all tracks, and plays a wealth of great keyboards, in ways that almost make him the European equivalent of Herbie Hancock – especially in the way he can spaciously explore a groove! But there's other great elements to the music too – some tight funky rhythms, great horn parts, and some wicked guitar from fusion legend Philip Catherine – whose snakey lines bring a quality to the record that was in place on Placebo's first outing. Titles include "NW", "Plotseling", "Hop Hop", "Tanga", "Stomp", and "Dag Madam Merci". LP, Vinyl record album

Phrydderichs PhaeldaBruchstuecke (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Notes On A Journey (Germany), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
A group with a sound that you'll never be able to pronounce – but with a sound that's instantly accessible, and which goes right to the heart of the matter in a great mix of funky fusion and more rock-styled touches! The lineup is pretty straightforward – keyboards, guitar, bass, and drums – but these guys have a great way of really coming up with unusual grooves and unusual phrasings – moments that clearly have a knowledge of freer jazz, but never go that far out – and performances from musicians who clearly know the world of prog, but also keep things tighter and groovier too! In a way, the feel of the record isn't too far from the early 70s Placebo albums with Marc Moulin – but maybe less keyboard-centric than those sets, and with tight rhythmic elements that also echo some of the funky fusion of the PM Records label. Tracks include "Hoppel", "Hetero", "Bruch", "Zinky", and "Malaga". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ TelexThis Is Telex ... CD
Mute, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A great introduction to the work of Telex – the very groovy Euro pop group started by keyboardist Marc Moulin after his early work in Placebo! The sound here is very different than that group – very catchy, very poppy, and upbeat with a ear towards helping the continental scene live past the years of disco – so much so that the electronic vibe of the set is also arguably a very strong influence on UK and Japanese electronic pop in years to come! Telex were always smarter than most, and had a great sense of humor and a way of sneaking politics into catchy little songs – as you'll hear on titles that include "Beautiful Li(f)e", "The Number One Song In Heaven", "The Beat Goes On/Off", "Moskow Diskow", "Eurovision", "Exercise Is Good For You", and "L'Amour Toujours".

✨✧ VariousLifetime Groove – Selected & Mixed By Ryuhei The Man ... CD
P-Vine (Japan), 1970s/2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Fantastic funky tracks from host of different sources – all brought together by Japanese DJ Ryuhei The Man – and served up in a blinding mix of tracks that flow effortlessly from one to the other! Most of the work is from the 70s, but there's a few more contemporary cuts in the mix, too – but the overall feel is hard 70s funk – usually of the funky 45 variety, but often with a more extended groove – as a number of these cuts are from rare album sources, which means that there's some great extended jams on the collection – plenty of heavy drums, wah wah guitars, rumbling basslines, and sweet keyboards! Titles include "Scorpio" and "Kashmere" by Kashmere Stage Band, "My Friend" by Ricardo Marrero & The Group, "Monkey Hips & Rice" by Wooden Glass featuring Billy Wooten, "The Crisis Generator" by The Sound Stylistcis, "Panama" and "Jessica" by Roy Porter Sound Machine, "Chief" by Lettuce, "Deeper Love" by Funkshone, "Your Love Is Mine (Nostalgia 77 rmx)" by New Mastersounds, "I'm Back For More" by Leo's Sunship, "Discover Disco Lover" by The Jazzinvaders, and "Humpty Dumpty" by Placebo.

✨✧ PlusPlus (includes bonus 7" single) ... LP
Veals & Geeks (Belgium), 1972. New Copy LP + 7" (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Kind of an offshoot of the Marc Moulin world of the early 70s – the self-titled album from Plus, a group made up of musicians from the funky combo Placebo! The vibe is much more open than Placebo, but still shares lots of that group's great talent for mixing together jazz, funk, and trippy bits of prog – all in a way that's never too overindulgent, and always with a nice punch on most of the cuts – so that there's plenty of funky moments too! Drums are great, keeping things very interesting – and the horn passages run from Afro-styled lines with a nice exotic quality, to straighter jazz rock – augmented by some gritty vocals from time to time – in a raspy style that's kind of a 70s update of soulful UK mod styles of the previous generation. Titles include "The Search", "Gimme Some More Of That", "What Did You Do", "Open Letter", "Put Everything Together", and "Enjoy Yourself". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes a bonus pic sleeve single – with the tracks "Kentucky Woman" and "Changing".)
