Raphael SaadiqAll Hits At The House Of Blues ... CD
Pookie, 2003. Used 2 CDs ... $12.99
One of the greatest talents in mainstream soul – recorded live, and sounding wonderful! Raphael Saadiq's been burning on the left side of the R&B mainstream for the past decade or more – really catching our ears with his work with Tony Toni Tone, and living up to his promise even more with his great solo work. But with an artist like this, we're always never sure how much of their talent comes from the studio – which is why it's really great to hear him live! The set's a wonderfully tight one – Raphael working with a live band in front of a tremendously enthusiastic crowd – getting help from famous friends that include D'Angelo, Joi, Ledisi, Goapele, and the rest of Tony Toni Tone. Titles include "Anniversary", "Loving You", "Let's Get Down", "Charlie Ray", "Excuse Me", "Faithful", "Ask Of You", "Just A Man", "Copy Cat", "Missing You", "Still A Man", and "It Never Rains". Plus, this CD features a bonus disc – with 7 more tracks that include "Be Here", "Uptown", "Different Times", "Still Ray", and "Blind Man". CD

✨✧ Lucy PearlLucy Pearl ... LP
Pookie/Unidisc (Canada), 2000. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The only album ever from Lucy Pearl – but a groundbreaking soul classic that still holds up strongly over the years! The group is something of an all-star trio – with a young Raphael Saadiq and Ali Shaheed Muhammad at the helm of the music, and Dawn Robinson of En Vogue on vocals – but all working together at a sound that's unlike any of their previous groups – tight, fresh, and even with a style that so many others in the underground would follow in years to come. Titles include the hit "Dance Tonight" – plus "La La", "Everyday", "Without You", "Don't Mess With My Man", "You", and "Do It For The People". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Uncle FunkensteinTogether Again ... CD
Jazzman (UK), 1983. Used ... Out Of Stock
An amazing bit of funky jazz – recorded in the Indy scene of the early 80s, but with enough raw power to blow away most soul jazz sides of the 70s! The album's filled with massively funky bass – played by key group member Larry Ridley, who brings amazing energy to the core "Uncle Funkenstein" jam that the album's best known for! The tune's an extended workout with a choppy, funky groove – started by bass, peppered with percussion, and really brought home with instrumentation that features group leader Russell Webster on tenor, James Spaulding on flute, Clifford Ratcliff on trumpet, Melvin Rhyne on piano, and Alonzo Pookie Johnson on additional tenor. Given the presence of both bigger names like Ridley, Spaulding, and Rhyne on the set – and that of local players under the direction of Webster – the record's a great bridge between the larger jazz community at the time and some of the key local scenes in which players would retreat and cook up even greater music. A few tracks on the album are a bit more conventional, or a bit mellow – but overall, the record's filled with plenty of soul, and more than enough funky power to live up to the group's name! Titles include the jamming "Uncle Funkenstein", "Unkle Funkenstein (part 2)", and "Uncle Funkenstein (cont)" – at 30 minutes, way more of the "Uncle Funkenstein" jam than appeared on the Luv N Haight reissue years back. Other titles include "Together Again", "Blue Robe", "Where Does life Come From", "Rock My Cradle", "Third Bosinova", and "500 Finished". CD

BerioSinfonia – Swingle Singers/Luciano Berio/New York Philharmonic ... LP
Columbia, 1969. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $11.99
The original recording of Berio's dark vocal piece Sinfonia, and one of the pivotal moments when the Swingle Singers switched from doing jazzy versions of classical tunes to work that was more avant garde. Their high level of talent is apparent in this recording, and they give Berio's work a nice haunting sound, with a feel that's even spookier because you sort of recognize them as a pop group, but one that's gone a little crazy here. Cool stuff, and with a good set of notes. LP, Vinyl record album
(360 Sound stereo Masterworks pressing.)

Fabio FaborB81 – Ballabili Anni 70 (plus bonus CD) ... LP
Fonit/Schema (Italy), 1970. New Copy ... $28.99 34.98
Fantastic sounds from the Italian scene – a set that's got some of the coolest, grooviest tunes we've heard from that country's sound library generation! Unlike some of the spookier, more avant sets from the libraries, this one's awash in beautiful little instrumentals that fit somewhere between funky soundtrack material and the jazzier side of easy listening – served up with a fair bit of bossa-styled rhythms in the mix, and some wonderful use of instrumentation that feels like the sound of 60s A&M Records, but taken into very cool, hip territory! Instruments include flute, electric harpsichord, trumpet, and tenor sax – all used in different ways from track to track – on titles that include "Sexy Tour", "Satanas", "Telegraph Center", "Alexandra", "Matildas", "Paradiso Hippy", "Orsella", and "Skinnj".

Ennio MorriconeQuattro Mosche Di Velluto Grigio – The Four Velvet Flies (crystal vinyl pressing) ... LP
Cinevox (Italy), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $29.99
A fantastically dark Morricone score! Morricone originally wrote this material for the film Quattro Mosche Di Velluto Grigio, the third part of Dario Argento's cult terror trilogy – and until the release of this reissue, only 2 of the tracks ever made it to the public, on a rare single issued by Cinevox in 1971. The leadoff track – "4 Mosche Di Vellutto Grigio (titoli)" – is actually a bit funky, with some very heavy drums and cascading fuzzy guitar riffs that sound very nice. Then, the record moves into spookier material – like the cut "Come Un Madrigale", and a number of self-titled themes – all of which feature strange harpsichord work, dark orchestral passages, and some very spooky production work! Fortunately, the score ends on an upbeat note – a hard driving, beat group sounding version of the main theme that's a nice cap to the whole package! LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition crystal clear vinyl pressing!)

Ennio Morricone/Bruno NicolaiDimensioni Sonore (10LP red vinyl pressing & 10CD box set) ... LP
RCA/Musica Per Immagini (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy 10LP & 10CD box set ... $499.99 554.99
Fantastic sounds from Ennio Morricone and Bruno Nicolai – a set of rare albums of more serious music done for RCA – very much in the darker spirit of their recordings with the Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova! The music here is more avant compositional than some of Morricone's lighter soundtrack material – with especially strong work on strings, showing the way that the maestro learned his sense of offbeat tones and phrasings from the 20th Century classical scene, which he then applied famously to some of his horror scores of the time! The music here definitely has qualities that match the spookier soundtrack 70s material from Morricone or Nicolai – especially his move to horror at the time – and as with just about all of his recordings, there's a fair bit of unusual sounds and elements that are extremely hard to peg in terms of their sources. This amazing package brings together ten full albums of music – five by each composer – all originally issued by Italian RCA, here in their original covers and liner notes – in a special canvas bag designed for the set! LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 250 – in a new deluxe fabric-covered box, on red vinyl – also includes 10CDs, book, poster and tote bag!)

Singers UnlimitedMagic Voices – 7CD Box Set ... CD
MPS/Motor (Germany), Early 70s. Used 7CD ... $84.99
For completists only! We always knew the folks at Motor Music were mad, but never this mad. Yet only beautiful madness could have led them to put out this insanely over-stuffed set of the complete works of one of the spookiest vocal groups of all time. Led by Gene Puerling of the Hi-Los, and recorded by the studio genius of MPS, the Singers Unlimited were a memorable group who managed to bring together jazz, easy listening, pop sounds, and even a bit of TV-jingle technique, in order to form a unique blend of harmony vocals that sounds like nothing else in the planet. Some of the stuff is cheesy, sure, but lots of it will blow your mind if you go in for the vocal group sound (as we do!) This set's got a massive 14 albums on 7 CDs, and it's packaged with a lavish booklet full of information, discographies, and essays on the band. We can't recommend this for everyone, but it's a stunning batch of material. And even though you do see some of their albums cheaply in the used record bins, this set contains a lot of stuff that you can never ever find. And as an additional bonus, the group is backed by folks like Clare Fischer, Art Van Damme, Oscar Peterson, Pat Williams, and others – and they also sing completely a cappella on 3 full albums! Wild.

Scott Walker/Jacques BrelScott Walker Meets Jacques Brel ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $6.99 19.99
A really great collection of work – one that shows the strong influence of Belgian songwriting genius on the music of Scott Walker! Scott emerged from the poppy Walker Brothers with a series of albums in the late 60s – records that are now well-respected classics that showed a much deeper side of the singer – one built partly from his own great compositions, but also from some musical contributions from Brel! This package begins with nine Scot Walker interpretations of Brel tunes – pulled from the albums Scott, Scott 2, and Scott 3 – with translations in the Mort Schuman mid 60s mode – a bit clunky, but perfect for Scott's baroque presentation of the material – especially as the tunes chosen are some of the spookier ones in Brel's collection of work. Scott Walker titles include "My Death", "Sons Of", "Funeral Tango", "Next", "The Girls & The Dogs", "If You Go Away", "Mathilde", "Amsterdam", and "Jackie". Then, the CD follows with Brel's own versions of the tunes, in French – which makes for a really wonderful comparison of modes – at a level that's followed up even more strongly in the notes within. Jacques Brel titles include "Tango Funebre", "Le Chanson De Jacky", "Au Suivant", "Les Filles Et Les Chiens", "Seul", "Ne Me Quitte Pas", "Mathilda", "La Mort", "Amsterdam", and "Fils De". CD

✨✧ Ennio MorriconeUna Lucertola Con La Pella Di Donna (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1971. New Copy 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Morricone fans – this one's got it all! The music is completely wonderful throughout, and a great mix of everything that makes Ennio Morricone so tremendous – a bit of bossa here, some funky bits there, and even some spookier slow passages with a nice atonal feel! The main theme of the record is more than enough to get us going – a wonderful tune with wordless female vocals in the best Mondo Morricone mode – but other instrumental tracks follow with some very cool, slow moments – including some great love themes which then lead to some beefier, bouncier numbers that are really great too. This limited 2CD version is great – with a total of 24 tracks that include "La Lucertola", "Magia Nera", "Giorno Di Notte", "Spiriti", "Ancora Ad Est", "Sfinge", "Spostato Ad Est", and "A Lucio Fulci".

✨✧ Riz OrtolaniLa Ragazza Di Trieste ... CD
Beat (Italy), 1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A cool Riz Ortolani soundtrack for this obscure early 80s film that starred Ben Gazzara – music that's of much later vintage than some of Ortolani's classics, but still pretty great overall! There's a fair bit of keyboards in the mix, but they're still delivered with the warmth we've come to expect from Riz – mixed in with sexier strings, and some occasional moments that echo the darker tones of horror scoring, but in a really subtle way that never overloads the sweeter side of the music. A haunting piano line provides a few spookier touches – and the whole thing's packaged in the same great way as other excellent Avanz label titles from Japan! Tracks include "Cercando Nicole", "Sgomento", "Suicidio", "La Ragazza Di Trieste", "Allucinazioni", "Spiaggia Assolata", and "Esaltazione Dei Senzi". CD

✨✧ Ataraxia (Mort Garson)Unexplained – Electronic Musical Impressions of the Occult (orange vinyl pressing) ... LP
RCA/Sacred Bones, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the spookiest albums we've ever heard from moog maestro Mort Garson – way darker and more complex than his Wozzard Of Id or moogy horoscope projects – with a feel that's much more like his legendary Black Mass album! Like that one, there's a fair current of supernatural running through the mix – an early use of the electronics to explore the darker corners of reality, served up with lots of cool 70s occult touches – in a way that's oddly more timeless than some of the later projects of this nature from the industrial generation. Garson's range of tones is wonderful – from fuzzy bassy bits, to sparkling keyboard lines, to lots of spacey sounds in between – and titles include "I Ching", "Tarot", "Deja Vu", "Seance", "Sorcerer", and "Astral Projection".

✨✧ Francois De RoubaixDaughters Of Darkness (Les Levres Rouges) (180 gram blue vinyl pressing – with bonus 7 inch single) ... LP
Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), Early 70s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the spookiest soundtracks ever crafted by one of our favorite film composers of all time! Francois DeRoubaix always had this amazing style to his music – unlike anyone else, especially in the way he could blend together spare acoustic elements and unusual sonic and electronic touches! There's a very intimate feel to the record – almost as if Francois is performing most of the sounds in the studio himself – balancing a guitar line with a keyboard fill, a bowed bass bit with drums, soaring strings with trumpet, and so on – occasionally hitting some funky touches that really keep things interesting – and which makes some of DeRoubaix best work on a par with the genius of Serge Gainsbourg and Jean-Claude Vannier! Titles include "The Countess Kiss", "Phantom Organ & Piano", "Pursuit On The Dunes Of Ostend", "Accident & Cymbalum", "Love On The Rails", "Red Lips", "Ballad In Bruges", and "The Dunes Of Ostend Flagellation". Also features two bonus tracks not used in the film – "Dracula 68 Woodstock" and "The Bruges Band". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Lalo SchifrinDirty Harry – The Original Score ... CD
Aleph, 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A lost bit of work by Lalo Schifrin – previously unissued recordings from the soundtrack of the original Dirty Harry film! We've been grooving to the Dirty Harry Anthology collection for years – as it features some of Lalo's best early 70s funky work – but the tunes on this set have never been compiled before, and together they represent a total of 22 tracks that offer up a whole new slice of Lalo's genius! On a number of tracks, the feel is very much in line with the famous Dirty Harry theme – often using some slight breakbeats to start out a track, then sliding into moody strings, weird sounds, and even some cool keyboard bits. There's a number of dark and atmospheric tracks as well – of the sort that were used during the spookier, tenser moments of the film – and they're laid out in a way that always hints at the next outburst of action! Titles include "Liquor Store Holdup", "City Hall", "The School Bus", "Off Duty", "Dawn Discovery", "Scorpio Takes The Bait", "No More Lies Girl", "Harry's Hot Dog", and "Main Title". CD

✨✧ Franco MicalizziGenova A Mano Armata ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1976. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Classic cop soundtrack work from the Italian scene of the 70s – a funky nugget that rivals our own American police scores of the time, but one that also has some darker elements too! The upbeat tunes here often feature lots of keyboards, funky bass, and guitar – quick-tempo grooves that move with lots of fast action – offset by some mellower numbers that mix in spookier strings and some creepier orchestrations, of the sort you might hear in an Ennio Morricone soundtrack. Micalizzi's always been one of the best Italian composers for crime/cop work like this – and the score is right up there with his best work – beautifully presented in this package that features 17 cuts from the film!
