✨✧ Mr PresidentHips Shaking (with bonus track) ... CD
Favorite (France), 2014. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The coolest work we've heard so far from this Patchworks side project – a record that fuses together equal parts 70s jazz, funk, and soul – with just the right smattering of global influences as well! There's a tightness to the set that we really love – careful instrumentation and production that make the whole thing feel like a Fantasy Records jazz funk project that might have happened down in Rio or Lagos – with slight Afro or Brazilian elements sifting in next to a core groove that comes from really classic basslines, keyboards, and drums! There's some vocals on a few tracks – mostly chorus-type that flow along with the grooves – and tracks include "City Rocking", "Candyman", "Hips Shaking", "Gimme All What You Got", "South Street Walk", "I Get So Crazy", and a surprisingly great cover of "I Can't Go For That". CD includes the bonus track "Give My Love". CD

BrainiacElectro Shock For President EP ... LP
Touch & Go, 1997. New Copy ... $15.99 17.99
The final EP from Ohio synth punk legends Brainiac – a huge stylistic leap from the manic mix of Moog and jagged guitars of their earlier records and live sound into a more sinister, though still slyly humorous mode – which sadly turned out to be a final statement for the band rather than a signal for their future. Working here with producer Jim O'Rourke, the band finds a whole new sound without losing their oddball charm, really drenching it with heavy synth and keys. Brainiac was at a real turning point here and it's tragic we'll never find out where they'd go next! Includes "Fresh New Eyes", "Flash Ram", "Fashion 500", "The Turnover", "For My Beloved" and "Mr. Fingers". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Rudy Ray MooreDolemite For President ... LP
Kent, 1972. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
Rudy Ray Moore takes the white house – or at least tries to – in this cool 1972 album that must have been a great antidote to the campaigns of Richard Nixon and George McGovern! The set starts with Rudy running his way through a whole bunch of campaign issues – including "Free Love" and "Mary Wanna" – all delivered in faux politico mode, with a crowd cheering him on, and an introduction that features music from "Exodus"! The rest of the set is a bit more typical Dolemite material – almost even more raunchy than the presidential mode – and other titles include "Dance Of The Freaks", "Bulldaggers", "Good Pussy Lil", and "Sit In Your Mama's Lap". Language is raw – so be warned! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Lester YoungPresident Plays With The Oscar Peterson Trio ... LP
Verve, 1952. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Lester Young joins the Oscar Peterson trio – and the result is a classic meeting of the minds from early 50s Verve! Young's tone is tremendous throughout – that sharp-yet-cool style that had such a big influence on other 50s players, and which gets some great support here from Peterson's group, which also features guest guitar from Barney Kessel. Oscar's piano lines are a bit more forceful than usual – possibly because of the presence of Prez – and titles include "I Can't Get Started", "Ad Lib Blues", "Just You, Just Me", and "Almost Like Being In Love".

Barbara RuskinLittle Of This – The Barbara Ruskin Songbook ... CD
President (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $3.99 15.98
A dreamy collection of work by Barbara Ruskin – a lesser-known girl singer from the 60s Brit scene, but one who's fast rising to the top of our list with her work on this great set! Barbara's got a style that's similar to, but a bit different than that of contemporaries like Sandie Shaw, Dusty Springfield, or Cilla Black – because (as you'd guess from the acoustic guitar on the cover), Barbara's got a bit more of an influence from folk music – and as her recordings progress, she picks up some nice trippier elements that expand her sound past the usual UK girl pop mode, into a headier style that we really love. There's plenty of jingle-jangle in the mix here – and the CD's extremely well done, with the kind of notes and images we'd expect from Sanctuary or Cherry Red! Titles include "Pawnbroker Pawnbroker", "Light Of Love", "Euston Station", "Song Without End", "On South Street", "Information", "Almost", "You Can't Blame A Girl For Trying", "The 24th Day Of July", "The Loneliest Word In The World", and "Yesterday's Coffee".

Sweet SlagTracking With Close-Ups ... LP
President/Lion, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
A unique British group from the start of the 70s – and that's saying quite a lot, given how many unique groups were part of that scene at the time! Sweet Slag aren't really psych or hard rock, but they have equal bits of both – folded into a style that's maybe more the sort of mode that you'd get from the American underground a few years later – especially in the pre-metal albums from the "private press" world that always seems to get a lot of attention in recent years – but with a performance level that's much more skilled and adventurous! The guitar work by Mick Kerensky is wonderful – sometimes back there a bit, but then strutting out with these incredible solos when in the spotlight – and the quartet also features these amazing moments on alto, soprano sax, and flute from Paul Jolly – informed by deeper currents of the late 60s Brit jazz scene, but used in different ways than the jazz/rock that was taking over the mainstream – almost more avant at moments, which makes for quite a contrast to the guitar. Titles include "Twisted Trip Woman", "Rain Again", "Milk Train", "Specific", "World Of Ice", and "Babyi Ar". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ James Taylor QuartetMission Impossible ... LP
Re-Elect The President (UK), 1987. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
Early work by the James Taylor Quartet – one of the group's first hard-hitting Hammond-driven albums, and a killer batch of retro funky tunes with a 60s R&B instrumental feel! James is really wailing on the Hammond on this one – blowing out some hip solos that romp with a mod late 60s London groove, stomping his way through hip covers of tunes that include "Blow Up", "Mission Impossible", "Alfie", "Mrs Robinson", and "Goldfinger" – and laying down some great originals like "Be My Girl", "The Stooge", and "Untitled No 1". A really great album – and the kind of record that shows the raw roots of James' early career, the ones he's returning to in his recent excellent funk recordings! LP, Vinyl record album

Lee FriedlanderJFK – A Photographic Memoir (hardcover) ... Book
Yale University Press, 2013. New Copy ... $8.99 45.00
A fascinating book, and one that's way deeper than you might guess from the simple JFK reference on the cover – but that's what we'd expect, coming from the genius of Lee Friedlander! JFK is definitely the subject of these photographs from the early 60s – but the man himself is never shot directly – as instead, Friedlander takes all these amazing images of people responding to the president, or marking his place in their life in special ways – often urban shots with a strongly multi-cultural backdrop, which really gets past any simple icons of the man. But even without JFK at the center, the book is a beautiful illustration of that special eye that Lee had in the 60s – set out here over 48 beautiful black and white images. Book

Classic dub & rocksteady from Joe Gibbs & The Professionals and Sly & Robbie – Errol Thompson & Joe Gibbs produced dub,rocksteady and dancehall LPs – 4 classic albums in a great little 4CD box set! It starts with classic easy and dubby rocksteady of the State Of Emergency album, rolling on with the killer rhythms of Majestic Dub and African Dub Chapter 5 set, and ends with the crisp steppin' dancehall sounds of Sly & Robbie's Syncopation album.

✨✧ Roy C HammondSex & Soul ... CD
Mercury/Playback, 1973. Used ... $5.99
Sex, soul, and lots more too – a sublime solo set from the great Roy C Hammond – recorded after his initial work with The Honeydrippers! The approach here is much more deep soul than his work with that group – very much in the best sort of Fame or Hi Records vibe – with a slow-burning sound that's a nice evolution past the earliest modes of southern soul, and which is perfectly suited to the sophistication of Roy's vocals! The set was the first in Hammond's solo run for Mercury Records – almost ignored at the time, but later the stuff of legend – thanks to writers like Peter Guaralnick, and others who've finally given Roy his due. The arrangements and instrumentation are wonderful – much more indie soul than you'd expect – on a par with the best early 70s material on Stax/Volt – and titles include "I Found A Man In My Bed", "Back Into My Arms", "Open Letter To The President", "Don't Blame The Man" and "I'll Never Leave You Lonely".

TwinkleGirl In A Million – The Complete Recordings ... CD
RPM (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99
Groovy Brit girl pop from Twinkle – a singer who shone briefly for a stretch in the 60s, which is when most folks know her songs – but who also recorded some more obscure material in the 70s – which gets included here on a nicely expanded set! Twinkle's got a style that's maybe a bit more dreamy than some of her UK contemporaries – less the brash, proud pop of Cilla Black or Petula Clark than the blue-tinged styles of some of the American girl singers of the time – especially some of those who were best at weepy ballads and songs of loss. Yet Twinkle's also much more of an enigma – as she wrote most of the material herself, and sort of sprung on the scene out of nowhere – with enough personal presence that she's not just another girl singer run through a few changes in the studio. The package features a whopping 43 tracks in all – all of her Decca label recordings, plus more for the Instant and President labels, plus a record producer Mike D'Abo, later 70s material, and even some live tracks too – with titles that include "Micky", "Terry", "Take The Trouble", "For Sale", "Smoochie", "Jane", "Joanna", "Bowden House", "I Am A Woman", "The End Of The World", "Sha La La La Lee", "Days", "Caroline", and "The End Of The World".

VariousAfrica Airways 5 – Brace Brace Boogie 1976 to 1982 ... LP
Africa Seven (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $22.99
Africa Airways takes to the skies again – and delivers a wonderful batch of funky soul tracks from the end of the 70s and start of the 80s! The work here is from a period when groups from Nigeria and other scenes were starting to absorb a lot more direct influences from American soul – especially clubbier modes of the disco generation, which were used to create a homespun variety of boogie – in a mode that really dominates this set! Lots of these tracks have upbeat vibes, tight rhythms, and strongly soulful elements in the lead – and titles include "Fine Biscuits" by Dikalo, "Angona Mana" by Mekongo President, "Chibidaba Chibidaba" by JK Mandengue, "Sugar Lump (edit)" by Tala AM, "French Girl" by Fotso, "Dashiki (inst)" by Mulamba, and "Too Young" by Jide Obe.

VariousLand Of 1000 Dances – All Twistin Edition ... CD
Ace (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Plenty of twisting here – and a surprisingly hip little collection that takes a look at the many incarnations of the famous dance craze in the early 60s! If you think you've already got the twist sussed out, then think again – because there's way more to the style than just big hits by Hank Ballard and Chubby Checker – as many other twist-based numbers have a raunchy, R&B-soaked sort of groove – a gritty, nitty sound that makes this package way more of a soul-styled collection than you might expect, with a few bluesy moments thrown in as well! As usual with Ace, the notes do a great job of illuminating this special moment in music – and most tracks in the package are from the years 1961 and 1962 – with titles that include "Twisting On Bandstand" by The Sprouts, "Mama's Doin The Twist" by Linda Hopkins, "Ya Ya Twist" by Petula Clark, "Twistin With Linda" by The Isley Brothers, "No Twistin On Sunday" by The Zircons, "Twist Around The Clock" by Clay Cole, "Twist & Freeze" by Billy Huhn & The Casuals, "Twist A St Tropez" by Les Chats Sauvages, "The Lone Twister" by The Lone Twister, "The Twist To End All Twists" by Robby Lawrence, "Do The President Twist" by Lula Reed & Freddy King, and "The Monster Twist" by Tyrone A'Saurus & The Cro-Magnons.

RPM (UK), Late 50s/1960s. New Copy 4CD ... $32.99
An amazing look at the world of New York music in the late 50s and early 60s – and a set that's got a much more urban vibe than you might guess from the cover! The vibe here is partly hinted at by the Broadway address in the title – as most of these tracks come from a time and stretch when the indie pop machine was going full steam in the US – strongly urged on by the success of 50s R&B and early rock hits – served up here in a stunning mix of really unusual, really groovy singles – most of which go way way beyond the too-reissued Brill Building music of the time! Instead, the bulk of this work comes from the President label – and other imprints like Joy, Seville, and others – all brought together with a huge booklet of notes that follows the 107 titles in the box on a track-by-track basis – all with the completeness of an Ace/Kent compilation. There's way too many titles here to list – but we can say that the set features work from Mort Garson, Floyd Morris, Judy & Joyce, Scott Carol, Joey & The Twisters, Bill Roxy, Curtis Knight, The Four Coins, Larry Banks, Millie Foster, Terry & The Tunisians, Laura Lynn, Scott Bedford Four, Ernie Maresca, Billy Duke, Billy Butterfield, Susan Lynne, Sleepy King, The Hideaways, Earl Wade, The Imaginations, Wallie Hawkins, Ronnie Mitchell, and lots lots more!

Delmark, 1967. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
Although recorded early in the career of Muhal Richard Abrams, this brilliant LP shows the pianist/composer turning away from the stock jazz and studio work of earlier years – to develop into one of the richest talents to rise from the Chicago avant underground of the 60s! At the time of the recording, Abrams was the president of the recently-founded AACM – and for the session, he's surrounded himself with some of the best young talents from Chicago, including Thurman Barker, Anthony Braxton, Leroy Jenkins, and Maurice McIntyre – all of whom help to create a complicated web of colors, shapes, and sounds, that prove that the youthful energy of the underground scene was more than capable of crafting sophisticated modernist documents. The album features three long works – "Levels & Degrees Of Light", "The Bird Song", and "My Thoughts Are My Future". LP, Vinyl record album

Soul Jazz (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic tribute to the studio genius of Bunny Lee – and a set that's filled with the kind of tracks that may well knock Lee Scratch Perry right out of the spotlight! Bunny already had a long and varied career in Jamaican music by the time of these tracks – hustling things up right from a grass roots level, then rising to prominence as a producer with a huge amount of inventive new techniques – including the flying cymbal rhythm sound, which was a great balance to some of the deeper, murkier elements in his grooves! These cuts are from a time when Bunny was working together with a host of fantastic singers, many of whom were inspired by the new more righteous modes that were coming into play at the time – opening up with deeper messages, and equally deep performances – in an array of tracks here that still have a tremendous amount of power, even after the space of decades – thanks in part to superb backings by The Aggrovators. The choice of tracks is wonderful, and the whole thing's put together with the usual stellar handling by Soul Jazz – with titles that include "Enter Into His Gates With Praise" by Johnny Clarke, "So Jah Se Dub" by The Aggrovators, "Magnum Force" by Vin Gordon & The Aggrovators, "Real Born African" by Jah Stitch, "King Tubby Dub" by King Tubby meets Tommy McCook & The Aggrovators, "Check Sister Jane" by Dillinger, "The Wormer" by Prince Jazzbo, "You Don't Care For Me" by The Uniques, "Natty Dread Have Ambition" by Shorty The President, "A Land Far Away" by Gene Rondo, "You Should Be Thankful" by Mighty Diamonds, "Marvelous Rocker" by Winston Wright, and "Principle & Dignity" by Jah Youth.

✨✧ Pamela PollandPamela Polland/Have You Heard The One About The Gas Station Attendant (with bonus track) ... CD
Columbia/BGO (UK), 1971/1973. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Two albums by Pamela Polland – one of which was never issued in the 70s! First up is the self-titled Pamela Polland – an obscure bit of 70s underground rock – the first solo album by Polland, who might be better known for her work in the psych-folk group Gentle Soul at the end of the 60s. This album's got a style that's a bit different than work by Gentle Soul – a lot more personal, and at times, a bit more rootsy – but not in a folksy way, instead more of that kind of early 70s California "back to nature" kind of rock – if that makes any sense at all. There's some great little songs on the record that show Pamela as a potentially huge figure in 70s rock – had she not gotten stuck off on the sidelines so much – but that fact makes the album all that much more compelling. Titles include "The Rescuer", "Texas", "Lighthouse", "The Dream", and "Sing A Song Man". The set also features Pamela's never-issued second album – Have You Heard The One About The Gas Station Attendant – a record that was finished, but squashed by Columbia Records as part of a political move after the label fired president Clive Davis! Polland was Davis' pet project at the time – and got top-shelf treatment for this second album – Elton John producer Gus Dudgeon put together most of the set in London, and Pamela is even more expressive, more thoughtful in both her singing and songwriting – with help from a host of key London studio talents, but all working in an understated mode that really sets the songs perfectly.

A never-issued live set from this fantastic Finnish prog combo – recorded around the same time as their classic Lambert Land album, and featuring many songs from that record – but served up here in a long-jamming style that really takes off with lots of improvisation on the solos! The group were always as much about jazz fusion as they were about rock – and you can definitely hear that hear on the long guitar solos from the great Jukka Tolonen, and the always-great, always-varied work by Pekka Poyry on soprano, tenor, flute, and even a bit of organ! Eero Raittinen sings, when he gets a chance – and the whole thing is driven up from the bottom beautifully by the bass of Mans Groundstroem and drums of Vesa Aaltonen.

✨✧ Tasavallan PresidenttiTasavallan Presidentti 2 (50th anniversary gold vinyl pressing) ... LP
EMI/Svart (Finland), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A hell of a second set from Tasavallan Presidentti – one of the coolest groups in Finland at the start of the 70s, and a combo that shows just how closely that scene's prog and jazz worlds were tied together at the time! The music is equal parts rock and jazz, but with a freewheeling vibe that maybe even beats some of the bigger, better-known jazz rock acts of the UK – as Tasavallan Presidentti really knock it out of the park with work on guitar from the mighty Jukka Tolonen, and searing alto, soprano, and tenor solos from Pekka Poyry – both artists you'll know from other jazz recordings too. The rhythms are tremendous – Mans Groundstroem on bass and Vesa Aaltonen on drums – and Frank Robson handles vocals with a nice raspy touch, always in English. Titles include "Tell Me More", "Deep Thinker", "Introduction", "Struggling For Freedom", "Weather Brightly", and "Sinking". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Tasavallan PresidenttiLambert Land (50th anniversary gold vinyl pressing – with bonus 7" single) ... LP
Love/Svart (Finland), 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Maybe the crowning achievement for legendary Finnish prog group Tasavallan Presidentti – a set that really has things coming together in ways that would separate the group apart from the rest – in a record that's almost all composed by Jukka Tolonen, the legendary guitarist in the group! The tunes have maybe even more of an instrumental focus than before – although new singer Eero Raittinen gets his share of space on the set – and reedman Pekka Poyry is really on fire on a variety of saxes and flute, chopping out these amazing lines that effortlessly blend jazz fusion and prog rock energy. Titles include "Lounge", "Lambertland", "Dance", "The Bargain", "Last Quarters", and "Celebration Of The Saved Nine". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Tasavallan PresidenttiLive In Lambert Land ... CD
Svart (Finland), 1972. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A never-issued live set from this fantastic Finnish prog combo – recorded around the same time as their classic Lambert Land album, and featuring many songs from that record – but served up here in a long-jamming style that really takes off with lots of improvisation on the solos! The group were always as much about jazz fusion as they were about rock – and you can definitely hear that hear on the long guitar solos from the great Jukka Tolonen, and the always-great, always-varied work by Pekka Poyry on soprano, tenor, flute, and even a bit of organ! Eero Raittinen sings, when he gets a chance – and the whole thing is driven up from the bottom beautifully by the bass of Mans Groundstroem and drums of Vesa Aaltonen. Titles include "Lambertland", "Celebration Of The Saved Nine", "Dance", "Ramblin", "The Bargain", "Lounge", and "Celebration Of The Saved Nine/The Bargain". CD

✨✧ Deep PurpleDeep Purple In Rock ... LP
Warner, 1970. Very Good Gatefold ... $11.99
Deep Purple may be asking a lot to knock the faces of the presidents off Mount Rushmore, and put up their own images instead – but given the force of this classic early 70s set, they may well have the musical power on their own to carve up a whole mountainside! The album's a ripper right from the start – a tight barrage of fierce guitars and heavy drums from the legendary lineup that included Roger Glover, Ritchie Blackmore, Ian Gillian, Jon Lord, and Ian Paice – a group so tight, so tremendous, the only way to proper describe them is to encourage you to drop the needle on a classic gem like this! A non-stop barrage from start to finish – with tracks that include "Speed King", "Bloodsucker", "Child In Time", Into The Fire", "Flight Of The Rat", and "Living Wreck". LP, Vinyl record album
(Green label pressing with Artisan etch. Cover has seam splitting and some surface wear.)

✨✧ Dave DouglasSingle Sky ... CD
Greenleaf, 2009. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautiful big band project from trumpeter Dave Douglas – done in close collaboration with Jim McNeely, acting as artist in residence and conductor for the Frankfurt Radio Big Band! The ensemble's got a hell of an artistic approach – and they work perfectly here in re-imagining Douglas' music for a larger group – partly with help from Douglas on a few tracks penned specifically for big band, but also with key direction from McNeely, who rearranged some of the others. Dave gets in some strong solos on the date – but other standout players include Staffan Weber and Oliver Leicht on reeds, Peter Feil and Christian Jaksjo on trombones, and Tony Lakatos on tenor and flute. Titles include "A Single Sky", "Persistence Of Memory", "Blockbuster", "Bury Me Standing", "The Presidents", and "Campaign Trail". CD
