✨✧ Beatfanatic & OthersBeatfanatic Presents Beat Traveler – Scandinavian Soundscapes ... CD
Rambling (Japan), 2007. Used ... $19.99
A collection of Beatfanatic tunes and other tracks he's remixed – put together with enough depth to stand as a Beatfanatic album on its own! The European beat maker's touches are all over the set – which has a bristling, crisp sort of feel that's totally great – a style that's somewhat cosmic, but never too much so – and which brings in elements of hip hop to the rhythms, but never lets them take over. Most tunes have a bit of a jazzy vibe, which is part of Beatfanatic's approach – and the CD also features 5 tracks that are either completely unreleased, or unreleased edits. Titles include "Colors (Beatfanatic rmx)" by Charlie Void, "VSOP (Beatfanatic edit)" by Stockholm Cyclo, "O Mundo E Seu (Beatfanatic rmx)" by Roman Andren, "Le Voyage" by Stockholm Cyclo, "Just Can't Get Away From You (Beatfanatic rmx)" by Secret Stealth, "Amber Lady (Beatfanatic rmx)" by Roman Andren, "A New Style" by Southside Break Crew, and the cuts "Let Us Pray (ext mix)", "Broken Descarga (12" mix)", and "Disco Skank" by Beatfanatic.

✨✧ Piero UmilianiRomantic Side ... CD
Rambling (Japan), Late 60s. New Copy ... $32.99
Don't think "romance" – at least not in the sleepy sort of American romance music from the 60s – and think "groovy" instead, and maybe a bit of "sexy" too – as these tunes are pure cinematic gems from Italian composer Piero Umiliani! Like the other volume in this series, this set features some unreleased material, and new remastering for all the cuts – but the best thing is the way that all these tracks from different films work together so wonderfully – with sweet bossa rhythms, nice jazzy moments, and some of those moments of sonic genius that always made Umiliani way more than just a musician. 20 tracks in all – with work done for films that include Il Comandante, Tutto Il Bello Dell'Uomo, Io Tigro Tu Tigri Egli Tigra, La Soldatessa, Colpo Gobbo All'Italiano, Extraconiugale, and La Celestina.

VariousBossa Moca ... CD
Rambling (Japan), 2003. Used ... $16.99
Modern Brazilian groovers – wonderfully breezy, with a kind of a remix twist – but overall, still filled with the warm spirit and the gentle groove of the bossa era! Most of these tracks feature live instrumentation and real vocals – not just the "bossa effects" and beats you'll find on weaker sets – and overall, the sound is somewhere between recent work from labels like Far Out, Trama, and some of the other hip new Brazilian imprints. Titles include "Aguas De Marco", "Vende Peixe Se", "O Pato", and "Insensatez" by Olivia Oliveira; "Open Air" by EASy, "Mas Que Nada" by Grupo Da Costa, "Canto De Orfeo" by Espirito, "Caipirinha" by Janice, "Splende" by Alex De Gomera, and "Amazonia" by Deeper & Pacific.

VariousClub Jazz A La Mode 3 ... CD
Rambling (Japan), 2008. Used ... $14.99
A host of unusual club jazz tracks – a number of which are from groups we haven't heard before! The set's more in a jazzy club mode, than the straight acoustic vibe we usually associate with the club jazz approach – but there's still plenty of great instrumental moments, and a sound that's warmly soulful throughout, even when the beats get a bit heavy, or the instrumentation a bit electric. The package follows very nicely in the vein of the other releases in the series, but digs a bit deeper too – and titles include "Club De Cigale" by Tape Five, "Charleston Butterfly" by Parov Stelar, "Message From Herbie" by Beatfanatic, "Higher" by Jojo Effect, "Il Sorpasso" by Bebo Beat & The Super Lounge Orchestra, "Understanding The Rich" by Alice Sings The Petterson Songbook, "Wonderful" by Brenda Boykin, "Always Love (Sunaga T rmx)" by Fabio Nobile, and "Smooth Operator (DJ Niche & DJ Shinsuke rmx)" by Karen Aoki with Native.

VariousClub Jazz Jet ... CD
Rambling (Japan), 2008. Used ... $18.99
Here's a jet we'd like to fly – one that's filled with contemporary club jazz tracks, all of them uptempo tracks for the dancefloor! The Japanese-only package does a great job of breaking from the ordinary, and doesn't just include some of the bigger names of the club jazz scene of late – but also tracks from a few years back that have a distinctly jazzy feel, but which came into being before anyone thought to label the genre! The rhythms are at the front of most of these numbers, but almost all of them have live jazz instrumentation too – and as usual with Rambling Records, the compilation is really a cut above what you might expect. Titles include "Bonga Bonga Jazz" by The Jazzinvaders, "Butterfly" by Karen Aoki, "Things We Do (alt take)" by Soular Sound, "Won't Give Up (The Realm voc rmx)" by Domu presents Pete Simpson, "Take Three" by Club Des Belugas, "Jazz Is Your Life" by Mitchell & Dewbury Band, "The Blessing Song" by Shirley Eubanks Ensemble, "Menino Das Laranjas" by LTC, and "The Light" by Raw Artistic Soul with Ursula Rucker.

VariousMiss Lounge Universe – France ... CD
Rambling (Japan), 2003. Used ... $18.99
A great take on recent work from France – one that focuses on tracks that have a quirky and retro approach to the groove, quite different in most places from the more famous house and techno coming out of Paris! The work here is very much in the spirit of the 60s mod Euro sound of the Rambling Records label – and the set brings together 14 tracks from a variety of French sources, with titles that include "La Vieux Thorax" by Playtime, "Le Party" by The Superhero's Conception Of Love, "Sunshine Yellow" by Burgalat, "Phonic Strip" by Le Grand David, "Jazz" by Fred & Plume, "Sugar" by Zimpala, "Toutes Les Filles Et Les Garcons" by Les Matchboxx, and "Erzatzophonie" by Rubin Steiner.

✨✧ Peter Thomas/Bruce LeeBig Boss (aka Fists Of Fury) (180 gram red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Rambling (Japan), 1971. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
The funkiest version we've ever heard of this great Bruce Lee soundtrack – one that brings together all the sweet instrumental moments by Peter Thomas, with sound that's much better than any other reissue! While previous versions have taken the music along with the dialogue, this gem of a set does a great job of isolating all the instrumental grooves – finally showcasing Thomas' excellent funky backings for Lee's onscreen antics, and also throwing in some sweet mellower moments that haven't appeared on other soundtrack releases too! The package is great, too – with English and German notes on the film and music, plus cool images too – finally telling the whole story behind one of the grooviest martial arts soundtracks ever. 20 tracks in all – including "The Amulet", "Hard Drugs", "Girl Loves Cheng Li", "Mukuri", "Big Boss Theme", "Big Boss & His Gang", "Blood & Dead Friends", and "EKG".

✨✧ Piero UmilianiLounge Side ... CD
Rambling (Japan), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sublime soundtrack work from one of our favorite Italian composers – the mighty Piero Umiliani – a man who gave the world plenty of weird sounds over the years, but who could also come up with a really dreamy sort of groove! Most of this work is a mix of jazz and bossa with some of the cooler phrasings and arrangements of the Italian cinema scene of the 60s – and instrumentation shifts nicely throughout – so that you'll get a twangy guitar on one cut, a sparkling electric harpsichord on another, and some cool vocal moments along the way! The choice of cuts is wonderful – all remastered by Claudio Fuiano, who also includes some unissued material too – from Umiliani recordings for La Bella Di Lodi, La Celestina, Due Mafiosi Contro Goldginger, Colpo Gobbo All'Italiana, L'Arcangelo, and Trappola Per Quattro.

Agitation FreeLast ... LP
Wah Wah (Spain), 1976. New Copy ... $29.99
The last album from the legendary early run of Agitation Free – and a set that definitely shows the group at the top of their game! The tracks are long, but never rambling – jamming, but never in a noodly way – and these guys really show why their contribution to German prog was so important at the time – able to handle some of the minimal progressions of their contemporaries, while finding a way to soar forward too – yet always with a sound that's completely fresh and free of cliche! Keyboards and guitar spiral out wonderfully together, and looped a bit in some really great ways – and titles include "Soundpool", "Laila II", and "Looping IV". LP, Vinyl record album

Dylan Baldi/Jayson GeryczAfter Commodore Perry Service Plaza ... LP
American Dreams, 2021. New Copy ... $18.99 19.99
Introspective improvisations from saxophonist Dylan Baldi and drummer Jayson Gerycz – both members of the band Cloud Nothings, but working here in a much more free jazz-styled setting! Side one features an extended track titled "Hermit Thrush/Vat Of Oil" – really building up nicely at first with open, almost rambling work on the drum kit – matched with saxophone work from Baldi that slowly builds, still in soulful spiritual territory for the most part – occasionally hitting some wilder, raspier moments – almost in an Arthur Doyle sort of way. Side two has some more subtle sonic interplay on "Frog Congress At Dawn", a very organic track – and ramps things up with more freewheeling improv on "The Holy Retrievers In Transit".

Fleetwood MacPious Bird Of Good Omen ... LP
Blue Horizon/Fat Possum, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... On February 26, 2021
The pious bird of good omen might well be the track "Albatross" here – nestled in the middle of the record, and a key sign that Fleetwood Mac were ready to break from their roots! But this is no heavy bird hanging around the group's neck – as the groundbreaking instrumental really set them free from their straight blues rock expressions, and is mixed here with a great range of material that really shows Peter Green and the group ready to take on the 70s. If you loved Green's blues guitar work on other records, don't worry – there's still plenty of it here – but the range of songs is great, and in addition to the amazing "Albatross", other tunes include the fantastic original version of "Black Magic Woman", plus "The Big Boat", "Rambling Pony", "Just The Blues", "Looking For Somebody", "Stop Messin Round", "The Sun Is Shining", "I Believe My Time Ain't Long", and "Coming Home".

A mid 1960s recording from Dave Ray, a white blues singer and blues guitar player. He accompanies himself on a 12 string guitar and Tony Glover plays mouth harp on a couple of the songs. The songs are very much in the tradition of Lead Belly and Robert Johnson and they are surprisingly good. There are a couple of Ray originals, "Need My Help Someday" and "Go My Bail" but the rest are mainly blues covers and they include "Julie & Johnson", "Bull Frog Blues", "Saddle Up My Pony", "Broke Down Engine", "Rambling On My Mind", and "Blind Lemon".

✨✧ George CarlinOn The Road ... LP
Little David, 1977. Sealed ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
George Carlin at the height of his powers – back when he still had a good batch of hair on the top of his head, and worked in that uptightly rambling style that was a direct heir to the innovations of Lenny Bruce in the 50s! As with Bruce, Carlin manages to illuminate topics both mundane and fringe – running through bits here that are less "routines" than reflections – colored by hip insights throughout. Titles include "Death & Dying", "On The Road", "Suicide & Reincarnation", "The Funeral", "Kids Are Too Small", and "Head Lines". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Heitkotter (Stephen David Heitkotter)Black Orckid (aka Heitkotter – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Now Again, Early 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Raw, rumbling outsider psych from Stephen David Heitkotter – a wild and raucous stream of rambling genius from the early 70s! There's a loose, bluesy approach at the core – with long songs and a disquieting, yet engrossing mood that makes the set one of the most compelling lost rock records of the early 70s. This amazing set of Cali bedroom psych (literally – it was recorded in a bedroom) has built up a deservedly lofty legacy in collectors circles, but it's also something of a mystery – which is what makes this Now Again issue such a treasure. The whole package has been very well researched, and long unanswered questions about Heitkotter and the recording(s) are answered at long last – in a solid booklet of of notes by Eothen Alapatt with rare photos, and an even rawer batch of bonus material. Titles include "Hangin All Night", "I Don't Mind", "Quaker Dog Got Away", "Cadillac Woman" and "Fly Over The Moon" – plus 6 more untitled tracks/demos. Amazing! CD
(A really beautifully done version from Now Again – which comes in thick, hardcover booklet – with bonus tracks.)

✨✧ Andrew HillHommage (Japanese paper sleeve version) ... CD
East Wind (Japan), 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An obscure set of solo tunes from modernist Andrew Hill – originally recorded for the Japanese East West label in 1975, and a very different side of Andrew's music than his Blue Note work of the 60s – but one that's equally great!. Hill's playing a grand piano – with a complex approach to chords that's really compelling – this sense of flow and majesty that we really love, as Andrew tries out some sharp edges at points – but still retains some of that soulfulness he rediscovered as the 70s approached. There's a darkness to the material that we didn't always hear in Hill's other sides – and the intimacy of the recording shows that his talents are still extremely rich at this point in his career. Titles include "Naked Spirit", "Rambling", "Vision", "Clayton Gone", and "Insanity Riff". CD

✨✧ Group DouehGuitar Music From The Western Sahara ... CD
Sublime Frequencies, 2006. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the wildest albums on the Sublime Frequencies label – really amazing music by a West Saharan group – one that features some of the most incredible guitar you'll ever hear! The music is all of recent vintage, recorded especially for this CD project – and the tunes have some incredibly offbeat electric guitar – riffing one minute, rambling the next, often with an intensity that matches the fast-sung vocals on the tracks. Other instrumentation includes a bit of keyboards and percussion – and the tunes are extremely hypnotic – almost a rockish distillation of same musical essence of the Master Musicians Of Joujouka. Titles include "Eid For Dahkla", "Wazan Samat", "Sabah Lala", "Fagu", "Tirara", and "Eid El Sarsh". CD
