✨✧ 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) (180 gram pressing) ... LP
EMI/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... 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". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Placebo (Marc Moulin)Placebo (1974) (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
EMI/P-Vine (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... 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". CD

Marc Moulin/PlaceboPlacebo Years – 1971 to 1974 (180 gram turquoise vinyl pressing) ... LP
EMI/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99 26.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Individually numbered limited edition of 1000 – on heavyweight turquoise vinyl!)

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 ... $24.99
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".

✨✧ PlaceboBalek/Phalene 2 ... 7-inch
P-Vine (Japan), 1973. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... Out Of Stock
A stunning cut that really sums up the unique groove of Placebo – as the instrumental has a way of folding the bassline over heavy drums, then layering things with these incredible electric piano lines from the great Marc Moulin! "Phalene 2" is slower, but every bit as funky – with off-tuned saxophone bits snaking over more funky drums and Rhodes! 7-inch, Vinyl record

P-Vine (Japan), 1974. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... Out Of Stock
A stunning blend of funky drums, soulful horns, and sweet sweet Fender Rhodes – a cut that comes on with a very dark groove, and this instrumental splendor that's simple mindblowing! "SUS" is wonderful too – guitar from Philip Catherine, funky Rhodes from Marc Moulin, and this blend of horns that sweetens the groove but never dampens the funk! 7-inch, Vinyl record

An insane funky monster from this legendary groove – a cut with this mad midtempo vamp that rolls on and on, peppered with horns – while Marc Moulin does some fantastic magic on a very deep-toned Fender Rhodes! "You Got Me Hummin" is a cover of the old Stax tune – but done here as a funky instrumental, with great drums and a sweet funky piano line! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ PlaceboPlacebo Live 1971 ... CD
We Release Jazz (Switzerland), 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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!

TelexThis Is Telex ... CD
Mute, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
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".

VariousUtopic Cities – Progressive Jazz In Belgium 1968 to 1979 ... CD
Sdban (Belgium), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99
A pretty incredible legacy of jazz from the scene in Belgium during the late 60s and early 70s – a place that never got the kind of exposure as the jazz worlds of the UK, Scandinavia, and Germany – but one that was making some really amazing work at the time! Take the "progressive" in the title a bit loosely – this is neither prog jazz rock, nor work that's too academic to be groovy – as the groups here are often a bit funky, and play with a surprising degree of soul – just the right space between the notes to make for tunes that cross over very well to fans of American funky jazz from the 70s, with some moments that also rival the best in Brazilian 70s jazz too! The rhythms are wonderful – sometimes full-on funky, sometimes more modal and spacious – and the tracks mix electric and acoustic instrumentation perfectly – mostly instrumental, but with a few vocals from time to time. Some of the artists are ones here you might not normally associate with Belgium – and that's just because they're finally getting their due here, in a well-collected package that also illuminates the connections with a great set of notes. Titles include "Vas Y Voir" by Brussels Art Quintet, "Pathetic Dreams" by Koen De Bruyne, "Archangelo" by Raphael, "Memphis Talk" by Philip Catherine, "Naima" by Lou MacConnell, "Pro Forma 1" by Babs Robert, "Utopic Cities" by Solis Lacus, "SUS" by Placebo, "Face Reality" by Jacques & Micheline Pelzer, "Tohubohu (part 1)" by Marc Moulin, "Open Sky" by Open Sky Unit, and "Sakara" by Clarke Boland Big Band.

✨✧ PlusPlus (clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
Golden Pavilion (Portugal), 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A rare funky gem from the Belgian scene of the 70s – served up by a group that features members of the group Placebo, but working here without the keyboards of Marc Moulin! 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, and keep 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
