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

MursMurs For President ... CD
Warner, 2008. Used ... $4.99
One of the kings of indie hip hop moves to the majors for his campaign for president – the mighty Murs – with production by 9th Wonder, Scoop DeVille, Nottz and others – plus unlikely guest appearances by Snoop Dogg & Will I Am. Murs can be a little preachy, but the funky hip hop pop productions work as a good counter balance for that, and with tracks this catchy we won't complain! Good stuff. Tracks include "I'm Innocent", "Lookin' Fly" feat Will I Am, "Can It Be", "Everything", "Sooo Comfortable", "Think You Know Me", "Me And This Jawn", "Time Is Now" feat Snoop Dogg, "A Part Of Me", "Breakthrough" and more.

Lester YoungPresident Plays With The Oscar Peterson Trio (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Verve, 1952. Used ... Just Sold Out!
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", "Two To Tango", "I'm Confessin", "There Will Never Be Another You", and "Almost Like Being In Love". CD features 13 tracks from the original sessions. CD

✨✧ MatataWanna Do My Thing – The Complete President Recordings (Air Fiesta/Independence/bonus tracks) ... CD
President/RPM (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Some of the heaviest funk recorded on the UK scene in the early 70s – courtesy of a Kenyan group who were making their home in London at the time – and cooking up music that was a fantastic blend of soulful modes from both their homeland, and the world of American funk and soul! These guys have a sharper, tighter style than some of the more progressive or psych-influenced groups who were part of the English post-colonial scene – tracks that are shorter, with maybe a bit more traditional percussion – but also plenty of wicked drums, and the sorts of basslines that you'd normally find only on funky 45s! And while Matata's music has been reissued before, this package features two full albums – Matata Air Fiesta (aka Wild River) and Independence – plus bonus singles too! Titles include "I Want You (alt version)", "Mbongo", "Funky Feeling demo)", "Good Samaritan", "I Feel Funky", "Return To You", "Good Good Understanding", "Jungle Warrior", "Wild River", "Mayo Mayo", "Picha Yako", "You've Gotta Find Me", "Talkin Talkin", "I Believed Her", "Vijana Africa", "Wanna Do My Thing", and "Return To You". 34 tracks in all!

President (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Girl pop, and plenty of soul music too – a batch of rare singles from the 60s, all making their CD debut on this sweet little set! The work here includes a fair bit of New York tunes from the time – music that has either an uptown soul or Brill Building vibe, but which is much more obscure than the hits – really showing the huge universe of artists who were working in the 45 underground who never fully got their due! Titles include "Jigsaw Puzzle" by The Chelmars, "Tom Tom" by Terry & The Tunisians, "I Have The Right" by The Twilights, "Love Wheel" by Millie Foster, "The Sweetest Boy" by The Kittens, "I Wanna Talk To You" by Karol Kelly, "There'll Be No Goodbye" by Susan Lynne, "What Does A Girl Do" by Marcie Blaine, "Where's My Love" by Jamie Horton, "Larry" by The Allen Sisters, and "I'm Hurt & So Is My Heart" by Little Gigi.

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

✨✧ Barbara RuskinLittle Of This – The Barbara Ruskin Songbook ... CD
President (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ VariousJoy/Select Story 1958 to 1965 ... CD
President (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A wealth of great pop, rock, soul, and novelty numbers from the end of the 50s and the start of the 60s – unusual little tunes recorded for the Joy and Select record labels, most of which we've never heard before! There's a rich sense of discovery in this collection – not just because the music is unfamiliar, but also because the way it's put together is so darn great – kind of like finding an unusual specialty show at the left end of the dial in the middle of the night – the sort that always turns you onto new records you'd never hear otherwise! Our favorite numbers here are probably the novelty numbers – but there's also some great straighter tunes that lived in the shadows of the hits, and which offer up a slightly different spin on early 60s pop. Titles include "From The Top Of Your Guggle" by The Five Blobs, "Sock Hop" by The Gorman Sisters, "When I Fall In Love" by Mindy Carson, "Robot Man" by Jamie Horton, "Bossa Nova Stomp" by The Fabulous Dials, "Slow Dance" by Karol Kelly, "S All Right S All Right" by Senor Wences, "Hootenanny" by The Glencoves, "The Soul Of My Man" by Pat Jarvis, and "When The Wind Changes" by Freddie Scott. 26 tracks in all!

✨✧ Muhal Richard AbramsLevels & Degrees Of Light ... CD
Delmark, 1967. Used ... Just Sold Out!
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". CD

One of the last great albums from James Brown! Not as totally sublime as Payback or some of the others from the 70s – but James is still working here with Fred Wesley and Dave Matthews – and many of the cuts retain the funk of a few years past.

Roxy CossFuture Is Female ... CD
Posi tone, 2018. Used ... $6.99
Roxy Coss's second album as a leader for the Posi-Tone label – and it's her strongest to date, both by design and in performance! Where her Chasing The Unicorn album set up a whimsical sensibility, this one obliviously sets up a tone of strength and determination – undercurrents of all her work we've heard thus far, but are front-and-center thematically here. The titles are strident and topical, while the sound is timeless, with some thematic touches – like the almost foreboding intro to "Mr. President" that leads into marching drums, or the slyly easygoing swing that starts "Feminist AF" leading to some of the most energetic soloing by Roxy on the whole set – but she never casts off the neo-classic jazz she's always had such a strong voice for. Recorded in a single day with her excellent band including Alex Wintz, Miki Yamanaka, Rick Rosato and Jimmy Macbride, titles include "Nevertheless, She Persisted", "Little Did She Know", "She Needed A Hero, So That's What She Became", "Females Are Strong As Hell", "#MeToo","Nasty Women Grab Back" and "Ode To A Generation".

Bunny Lee & OthersDreads Enter The Gates With Praise – The Mighty Striker Shoots The Hits ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $18.99 22.98
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.

MomusCreate 2 – Recreate (Hippopotamomus/Voyager/Timelord/bonus tracks) (3CD set) ... CD
Creation/Cherry Red (UK), Early 90s. Used 3 CDs ... $14.99
A trio of late Creation Records albums from Momus – each with bonus tracks too! Hippopotamomus is a set that Momus dedicated to one of his big musical inspirations, Serge Gainsbourg – at a time when so few of his contemporaries had yet to rediscover Serge's genius! And yet like all of Momus' best influences, the power of Gainsbourg isn't slavishly delivered here – but instead taken at a very deep level, and fused into the singer's already uncanny ability to delivery an offbeat tune. Most of the instrumentation is quite spare and electronic – which brings a bit of coldness to the record that differs from some of Momus' earlier, more acoustic albums – and lyrics are sometimes spoken as much as sung, which adds a further sinister vibe. Titles include "Marquis Of Sadness", "A Monkey For Sallie", "The Painter & His Model", "Bluestocking", "I Ate A Girl Right Up", "Michelin Man", and "Pornography". Voyager is a record in which it might be said that Momus discovers modern rhythms, especially the strong influence from house that was being felt in the UK mainstream of the time – but, as with all of the singer's classic albums, the presentation here is something completely different and unique! The production and instrumentation are definitely a cut above for the one-man act – with these beautiful washes of sound amidst the beats and warmer keyboards – all providing a perfect setting for the cosmically expansive nature of the lyrics – which seem to deal with future thoughts and spacious themes more than usual. Titles include "Vocation", "Virtual Reality", "Summer Holiday 1999", "Afterglow", "Voyager", and "Spacewalk". Timelord is an album that has one of the strangest covers that Momus ever gave us – photographed by Pierre et Gilles – and a set that also features some of the most subtle songwriting from the singer too! The song style follows from the more electric modes that Momus had been using during his later Creation years, but the presentation is also a lot more sophisticated too – so that things are abstracted a bit, which warms them up nicely – matched by vocals that are sometimes a bit distant in their perspective, but which also give uncanny clarity to the subject matter. Songs include "Elightenment", "Breathless", "Suicide Pact", "You've Changed", "Landrover", and the beautiful "Christmas On Earth". 3CD set features bonus notes – and 10 bonus tracks that include "Smart Drugs", "The Mechanical Arm", "President Of Love", "Life Of An Office Worker", "I'm Still Trying", "Things You Never Did", "Empress Of Hawaii", "Song Of The Traffic Crossing", "Je Suis Avec Le Christ", and "Summer Holiday 1999 (original)".

Phil OchsI Ain't Marching Anymore ... LP
Elektra, 1965. Very Good ... $14.99
Easily the greatest album ever recorded by the legendary Phil Ochs – a masterpiece of politics and power, filled with themes that still resonate strongly 40 years later! From the very first note of the set, Ochs expresses himself with a confidence, intelligence, and clear-headed vision that cannot be denied – a way of getting to the heart of the issues that matter, issues that were coming to a head back in the mid 60s, but which still lie largely unresolved to date – and have a nearly timeless quality here in the stripped-down guitar and vocals presentation of the album. This is the kind of set that made Elektra records one of the most chance-taking labels of the 60s, and it's far more than just a simple folk album – really one of the first bold moments of politics in 60s pop, and the harbinger of countless records to come. Titles include "I Ain't Marching Anymore", "Iron Lady", "Links On The Chain", "Hills Of West Virginia", "The Men Behind The Guns", "Here's To The State Of Mississippi", "In The Heat Of The Summer", and "That Was The President".

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 ... $14.99
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.

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".

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.

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!

Varese/Death Waltz (UK), 1981. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A seminal soundtrack from the legendary John Carpenter – one of those key records that showed the world that he was as great of a composer as he was a director! The album's a Carpenter-esque masterpiece – lots of cool, spare electronics – used in ways that make the whole movie a whole lot scarier than even the images on the screen – a quality you'll definitely appreciate here as you listen to the album on its own! Some of the best sounds are the most subtle – spare use of basslines and keyboards that almost make you feel as if Moebius and Rodelius have gone over to the dark side – and these are mixed with just a few more "action" based moments. Titles include "Up The Wall/Air Force 1", "Everyone's Coming To New York", "The Duke Arrives/The Barricade", "Back To The Pod/The Crazies Come Out", "Police State/Romero & The President", and "Chase Across The 69th Street Bridge".

Other tracks include "Code's Megamix" (a mix of early Schoolly D singles done by his DJ, Code Money), Run-DMC "Jam Master Jammin", Kurtis Blow "AJ Scratch", Cash Money & Marvelous "Ugly People Be Quiet", Jazzy Jeff & Fresh Prince "The Magnificent Jazzy Jeff", Grandmaster Flash "Larry's Dance Theme", Steady B & DJ Tat Money "Rockin Music", Whodini "Now That Whodini's Inside The Joint", Too Short "DJ Universal Mix" LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ AmnestyFree Your Mind – The 700 West Sessions ... LP
Now Again/Stones Throw, 1973. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Rare funk from the Indy scene of the early 70s – the long-overdue release of material recorded by a really hard-jamming, horn-heavy combo! Amnesty have a sound that's awash in the best large group influences of the time – a bit of Earth Wind & Fire, a bit of Parliament/Funkadelic, but also a grittier, more guitar-based groove at times too – one that rumbles heavily at the bottom of the rhythms, with a sound that's like Norman Whitfield-era Motown, taken to much greater extremes! There's actually a lot more Detroit going on in the work than Indy – but the horns also have a jazzier, more open-ended quality too – not just parts penned for simple funky rhythms, but ones that show some influence from the more righteous side of the jazz spectrum. The material was all recorded on two dates in 1973 – but only issued here for the first time – and together, the tracks are a great example of a hip group from the underground, really letting loose with a great sense of freedom. There's some vocals on the record, but almost more of a focus on the instrumentation overall – and titles include "Can I Help You", "Love Fades", "Trouble Will Remain", "We've Come A Long Way", "Liberty", "Mister President", "Free Your Mind", "We Have Love", and "Lord Help Me".

✨✧ Paul GonsalvesCookin – The Complete Sessions 1956 to 1957 (Cookin/Colorful Strings Of Jimmy Woode/Jazz School) ... CD
Argo/Fresh Sound (Spain), 1956/1957. Used ... Out Of Stock
Tremendous work all around – two rare sessions for Argo, plus additional material recorded for Emarcy! The core Cookin album is quite possibly the best album that Paul Gonsalves ever cut as a leader in the US! The record was cut during a flurry of recordings for Argo that all featured small group Ellington setups – sessions that were issued on three different albums under the names of Clark Terry, Jimmy Woode, and Paul Gonsalves! This set features both Terry's trumpet and Woode's bass – but Gonsalves' tenor is very firmly in the lead – blowing with a harder edge and a deeper soul than we ever remember on other records – a gritty style that's almost more hardbop or soul jazz than regular Ellington swing. Other players include Willie Jones on piano, and Sam Woodyard on drums – and the set features some great original titles that include "Clark's Bars", "Funky", "Festival", "Impeccable", "Paul's Idea", "Phat Bach", and "Milli Terry". Next up is The Colorful Strings Of Jimmy Woode – an incredible record from bassist Woode – quite possibly his only small group session as a leader, and a super-hip album that bridges his work with Duke Ellington and later sides with the Clarke Boland Big Band! The record's got a groove that's far different than anything Woode cut with Ellington – and in a way, it already points the way towards some of the sounds that would be created by American ex-patriots on the European scene of the 60s. The groove is very light – and features Woode's bass leading a combo with flute from Mike Simpson, tenor from Paul Gonsalves, trumpet from Clark Terry, and piano from Ramsey Lewis – all coming together in unusual timings and phrasings that are a fair bit different than their own work of the time. Simpson's flute is especially great – a really lyrical element that works perfectly with Woode's melodic bass work – and Gonsalves and Terry are working here in their best tonal color mode, really shading things in nicely! All cuts are originals by Woode, and they're done in long takes – with titles that include "Dance Of The Reluctant Drag", "Man From Potter's Crossing", "Falmouth Recollections", and "Foofy For President". The CD features 4 more tracks from an Emarcy album titled The Jazz School – work recorded in 1956 with Terry on trumpet, Gonsalves on tenor, Junior Mance on piano, Porter Kilbert on baritone, Chubby Jackson on bass, and Eugene Miller on drums. Titles include "Don't Blame Me", "Everything Happens To Me", "Take Nine", and "It Don't Mean A Thing". CD

✨✧ Guelewar Band Of BanjulWarteef Jigeen ... CD
PMG (Austria), 1981. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A wonderful fusion of traditional roots and contemporary funk – handled perfectly by this legendary Gambian band! The groove is unique – with earthy percussion and haunting vocals mixed with more 70s-styled funk instrumentation – but often in a way that's as interested in sonic experimentation as it is in search of a groove – an approach that really sets these guys apart from most of their contemporaries, and which has made the Guelewar Band's records get some great attention in recent years. The group call their approach "Afro-Manding Sound" – and titles include "Warteef Jigeen", "NTC The Gambia", "Mamadu Bitike", "President Diawara", and "Jilanna". CD

✨✧ Oliver NelsonKennedy Dream – A Musical Tribute To John F Kennedy ... LP
Impulse, 1964. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A great little album – a lot better than you might think from the concept! After the death of JFK, Oliver Nelson penned this extremely strong tribute to the man – featuring snippets of speeches made by Kennedy during his time in office as president, used as bridges between jazz based backings by Nelson that are filled with some of his strongest writing of the time. The notes are more devoted to Kennedy's memory and Nelson's genius than the usual liner notes – so we're not sure who the players are – but the overall style is right up there with some of Nelson's best serious work from the time, and features a striking use of strings against jazz solo instrumentation, almost in a manner that recalls Ralph Burns' best styles of the 50s. Titles include "The Artists Rightful Place", "Jacqueline", "Day In Dallas", "Let The Word Go Forth", and "John Kennedy Memory Waltz". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ BlackaliciousBlazing Arrow ... CD
MCA, 2002. Used ... Out Of Stock
The first major label release by the Gift of Gab and Chief Excel finds the duo expanding outward and experimenting with their signature sound, bringing in a host of guests including Quannum mainmasts Lyrics Born, Lateef, and Joyo, as well as Dilated People's Raka and Babu, J5's Cut Chemist and Chali 2na, Saul Williams, Gil Scott-Heron, Ben Harper, and more, plus guest production by ?uestlove and Hi-Tek. There are some definite gems on here, with plenty of soulful female vocals, but don't expect a Nia part 2. This is a lot different, with a little more songcraft sensibility and at the same time bumps like Blackalicious project should. Cuts include the eerie "Blazing Arrow", "4000 Miles" with Chali 2na and Lateef, the instant classic single "Make You Feel That Way", the fist pumpin "Paragraph President", and many more. 17 in all.

BGP (UK), New Copy 2 LPs ... Out Of Stock
A damn classic entry in the Super Breaks series from BGP – one that's filled with crucial sample cuts from the old school – some really wonderful funky nuggets, brought together here as a great reminder of the tracks that first got us digging back in the day! There's less of the totally obscure numbers here than you might find on other Super Breaks volumes, but things aren't totally mainstream either – and the compilers have not only done a great job of pulling together tracks that were really important for hip hop, but have also managed to put a really fresh spin on the music altogether – reminding us once again that even in the age of digital music, nothing beats a well-done compilation! Titles include "Shifting Gears" by Johnny Hammond, "Mary Mary" by The Monkees, "Scratchin" by Magic Disco Machine, "It's Just Begun" by Jimmy Castor, "Africano" by Earth Wind & Fire, "Apache" by Incredible Bongo Band, "Got To Get A Knutt" by New Birth, "Get Up & Dance" by Freedom, "Super Sporm" by Captain Sky, "Who Is He & What Is He To You" by Creative Source, "Funky President" by James Brown, "Blow Your Head" by The JBs, "Johnny The Fox" by Thin Lizzy, "Let A Woman Be A Woman Let A Man Be A Man" by Dyke & The Blazers, "The Clapping Song" by Shirley Ellis, and "Get Ya Some" by Melvin Sparks.

✨✧ Billy BondBilly Bond Y La Pesada – Vol 1 & 2 ... CD
Cloud Forest (New Zealand), 1970/1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Heady and heavy work from Billy Bond and La Pesada Del Rock & Roll – a guitar heavy group from Argentina, and one with plenty of blues rock overtones! The guitars are definitely turned up to 11 here – jamming with an intensity to match some of the best hard rock sides from Peru reissued by the Lazarus label in recent years – and like those sets, there's a sound here that's an intensification of earlier beat group modes – taken into much harder territory for the 70s. The production is great – earthy, trippy, and a little bit spooky – and the album's got an oddly unsettling feel, one that's familiar at first, but then increasingly estranged as the record moves on. Quite compelling, and with 16 tracks that include "Dueno De Tu Piel", "El Parque", "Buen Dia Senor Presidente", "Divertido Reventado", "Salgan Al Sol", "La Maquina", "Voy A Ver Un Amigo", "Para Que Nos Sirven", and "La Marcha De San Lorenzo".

Herb Alpert remakes himself again – taking all the best tunes from his classic years on A&M records, then fitting them to contemporary grooves – all at a level that's a bit like some of the Verve Remixed projects from years back, but even better! These aren't remixes, but new versions – as Herb blows strong trumpet lines over the top of beats, keyboards, and other contemporary elements – all while keeping that Tijuana Brass punch in his horn, on versions of "Whipped Cream", "Spanish Flea/Rise", "The Lonely Bull", "El Presidente", "Spanish Harlem", "Green Peppers", "A Taste Of Honey", and "Bittersweet Samba".
