Agustin Gurza/Jonathan Clark/Chris StrachwitzArhoolie Foundation's Strachwitz Frontera Collection Of Mexican & Mexican American Recordings ... Book
UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center, 2012. New Copy ... $6.99 19.95
A fascinating look at the world of Mexican music in the 20th Century – put together in collaboration with Arhoolie Records, the label that's done plenty to reissue the music over the years! The book begins with the huge archive of recordings by the label's founder, Chris Strachwitz – then takes off in a number of different streams – providing historical context, critical evaluation, and even some discographical details – in the form of various lists and sections of music. The book looks at some key styles too – including corridos and mariachi, traced both through Mexican recordings, and US singles by Mexican-Americans – and the whole thing is only the tip of the iceberg, in relation to the 40,000 recordings that have been digitized by the University Of California Library as part of the project. Still, there's plenty here to get you started – a huge amount of information that's even more inspirational than some of Arhoolie's great reissues over the years – in an oversized book that's 226 pages, softcover, with many black and white images too.

MildlifePhase ... LP
Research (UK), 2018. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Funky jazz, but with plenty of keyboards that really trip things out – lots of long moogy runs that really make things sound great – especially when they're balanced out by Fender Rhodes! These guys seem to start in the territory of 70s electric jazz – especially the funkier sort – but they're also open to some 80s modes too, and even seem to point at times towards the spacey instrumental keyboard club that would show up on the European scene at the end of the 70s! About half the record has vocals, but the keyboards seem to be the main attraction – lined up nicely alongside guitar, bass, drums, and congas. Titles include "The Magnificent Moon", "Im Blau", "Zwango Zop", "Phase", "Two Horizons", and "The Gloves Don't Bite". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousHillbillies In Hell – Country Music's Tormented Testament 1952 to 1974 – The Resurrection ... CD
Omni/Iron Mountain Analog Research (Australia), 1950s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
This great series just keeps on getting better and better – as the hillbillies rise from hell, and take their message into the musical mainstream! Previous volumes have dealt with themes of sin and redemption in country music – and this time around, the scope seems pushed even farther – partly because the music extends into the 70s, but also because the stylistic blend is even more amazing – as bigger-name singers mix with obscure artists, and major productions mingle with rare tracks from the indie world. The album's overflowing with great work – along with the great notes of other volumes too – and titles include "The World Is A Monster" by Doug Tubb, "Six Pallbearers" by Bob Gallion, "Devil Train" by Johnny Doe, "God Please Protect America" by Seymore Weed, "Hellbound Train" by The Lumberjack with The Northwood Singers, "Room 333" by Ben Wasson & The Hardtimes, "Mammoth Cave Secret" by Charlie Stewart, "Daddy's Sick Again" by Arkey Blue, "Wrestlin With Satan" by Zero Jones, "Satan Must Get Along Without Me" by The Knight Brothers, "There Ain't No Grave Gonna Hold My Body Down" by GM Farley & The Foggy River Boys, and "Hillbilly Hades" by Texas Bill Strength.

✨✧ BilalAirtight's Revenge ... CD
Plug Research, 2010. Used ... Out Of Stock
A masterpiece from Bilal – the record we knew he had in him all this time since 1st Born Second came out nearly a decade prior! Earlier in his career, Bilal was one of those distinct voices you'd hear assisting myriad singers and MCs on their singles, someone you knew should be a superstar in his own right. Whether or not he ever reaches that status in popularity or in financial rewards, here he's delivered what might be the soul/R&B album of the year for 2010. We'd hasten to compare him to anyone else out there, but there's a boundless sense of creativity that begs comparison to Erykah Badu, in spirit if not in the sound. Much of the album is co-produced by Steve Mckie, with live instrumentation that gives it a funky psychedelic soul feel: live drums, beats and effects, Moog, keys, synths, guitars and bass. The other collaborators in the production booth – Shafiq Husayn, Nottz, 88 Keys – all clearly share Bilal's vision, as we hear nothing that sounds like a concession to anything or anyone. Lyrically, Bilal deals with matters of grave importance and more intimate personal truths, but the adventurousness and soulfulness of the music give it all a unified feel. We could go on and on about this one, kids. Don't pass it up! Includes "Cake & Eat It Too", "Restart", "All Matter", "Flying", "Levels", "Little One", "Move On", "Robots", "The Dollar", "Who Are You" and "Think Over". CD

✨✧ VariousNigeria Soul Fever – Afro Funk, Disco, & Boogie – West African Disco Mayem (3LP set – with download) ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3LP ... $32.99 34.99
The Nigerian groove of the 70s – way past the familiar modes of Fela Kuti, and served up here in a range of artists who followed on a huge second wave of soul that soared from Lagos and beyond in the second half of the decade! The music here opens up in a sweet range of different styles – including bits of club and boogie that have come into the scene to open up Nigerian funk in more global modes for the dancefloor – blending African roots with American currents, in a sound that's completely unique – and which is way better than some of the Afro-disco modes that were coming from Europe a the time! As usual with the folks at Soul Jazz, the set's an ear-opening work of genius – from the superb track selection, to the very thorough notes and research – which really do a great job of presenting this side of Nigerian funk that's always been a bit eclipsed by some of the bigger names on the scene. Liner notes are by dancefloor historian Bill Brewster – and titles include "Do The Funkro" by Joni Haastrup, "You Can't Change A Man" by Christy Essien, "Afrikana Disco" by Akin Richards & The Executives, "Ocheche" by Don Bruce & The Anges, "Nam Myoho Renge Kyo" by Tee Mac, "Get Up & Dance" by Benis Cletin, "Enoviyin" by Colomach, "Nwaeze" by Jimmy Sherry & The Musik Agents, "Wake Up Your Mind" by Joni Haastrup, "Disco Dancing" by Angela Starr, "Mr Been To" by Arakatula, "Living Every Day" by Tee Mac with Marjorie Barnes, "Wake Up Africa" by Arakatula, and "Soul Fever" by Benis Cletin.

VariousSeafaring Strangers – Private Yacht ... CD
Numero, Late 70s. Used ... $11.99
That's Seafaring Strangers, not to be confused with the rootsy vibe of the Wayfaring Strangers on a similarly-named Numero Group series – as these guys are playing tightly-crafted sounds that soar to the mainstream – with a vibe that's obviously classy enough to get them admission to somebody's private yacht! And yet, in keeping with the Numero spirit, all of the music here is pretty darn obscure – pulled from obscure 70s records that were created in the shadow of major label AOR – all music that aimed for the smooth, jazzy vibe of bigger records by artists like Steely Dan or Boz Scaggs – but never got any sort of wide-label release! The quality of the work here is wonderful – homegrown and personal, but put together in a way that's really sharp – showing that even if you love AOR, you don't have to stick to the big labels to find your treasures. In true Numero fashion, the whole thing comes with detailed notes, which show a lot of research into the music – and the fact that the whole thing was hardly an accident in the way that it came together. Titles include "Aquaintances", "Your Burning Love" by Steps, "Give Me Your Love" by Paul Skyland, "Dance Of Love" by Calvin Johnson, "One More Time" by Salty Miller, "Wrap Myself Up In Your Love" by Jim Spencer, "Never Gonna Let You Go" by Michael Miglio, "Please Analyze" by AJ Loria, "Sailing" by Gary Marks, "To Be Lonely" by Country Comfort, and "Back To The Streets" by Rudy Norman.

Ace/Westbound (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... $12.99 18.99
Deep deep funk from the legendary Westbound label – the important early home to Ohio Players and Funkadelic, but also host to some other great funky groups too! In keeping with the name, the cuts here focus on the kind of Westbound tracks that have great drum breaks in their groove – or which stand out as great selections for sampling, too – but all presented with the same sort of care, research, and attention to detail that the Ace label brings to all of their famous soul collections! In other words, the whole thing's got all the sharp edges and funky beats as one of those dodgy sample collections – but the sound is better, the tracks are legit, and the whole thing features detailed notes as well. Titles include "Kissing My Love" by Spanky Wilson, "Funky Worm" by Ohio Players, "Suzie Thundertussy" by Junie, "You & Your Folks Me & My Folks" by Funkadelic, "Music Man (part 2)" by Pleasure Web, "Back From The Dead" by King Errisson, "You're Gettin A Little Too Smart" by The Detroit Emeralds, "Pack Of Lies" by The Counts, "Funk It Down" by Caesar Frazier, "Good Old Music" by Mgictones, "The Fuz & Da Boog" by Fuzzy Haskins, "Heartbreaker Of The Year" by Denise LaSalle, "Does He Treat You Better" by Unique Blend, "Baby Let Me Take You In My Arms" by Detroit Emeralds, "Mixed Up Moods & Attitudes (Tom Moulton mix)" by Fantastic Four, "Tightrope (single mix)" by Junie, and "I'll Bet You" by Funkadelic.

World Music is a previously cassette-only set with remixes by Matthewdavid, Andrew Pekler, Nerftoss, Fumitake Tamura (aka Bun), and EMV. Perception is a loosely atmospheric set of aural soundscapes, a heady headphones experience that's as mesmerizing as anything we've heard on Leaving, walking the line between experimental beathead material and more experimental sounds. Includes "Gala", "Shame", "Solo", "Ghillie In The Mist", "Relative Research", "Ballast", "Found", "Mirror", "Scaling", "Informant", "The Racer", "Elastic", "Multibody", "Gala (Matthewdavid Remix)", "Sugar In The Dark", "Paia", "Monica/Swept", "Found (Fumitake Tamura 'Bun' Remix)" and more.

✨✧ Precious Lo'sToo Cool For Love ... CD
P-Vine (Japan), 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sweet electro soul from the Precious Lo's – a duo who have a great stripped-down sound, but who manage to really make things sparkle with their vocals in tandem! The instrumentation is nice and lean – beats, basslines, and keyboards – certainly raised in the 80s, but with a more conventional sparkle too – especially in the way the lyrics can play with the keyboards in a really tuneful way, at a level that reminds us of some of our favorite records from the group Talc from a few years before. Titles include "Night Ridin", "Without You", "Still The Same (BusCrates 16 bit ensemble rmx)", "Too Cool For Love", "More Than Friends", "Problems", "Right Time For Us", "Fly Away (Tyler Smith rmx)", and "This Is Love (Circle Research rmx)".

✨✧ Sun RaMedia Dream (expanded 2CD edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Saturn/Art Yard (UK), 1978. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Incredible work from one of Sun Ra's most enigmatic periods! The album was recorded in Italy in 1978, right around the same time as "Disco 2000" (and not too far off from Languidity) – and it features Ra playing around with lots of cool spacey keyboards, in a spare cosmic style that's really out of this world! The overall sound is incredible – with an incredible sense of otherness that has Ra pushing the limits of the moog and organ to a level never heard before on record – and in a way, the set is everything you might have imagined when you first heard of Sun Ra as some strange jazz musician who claimed to be from outer space! The group is a quartet, with Michael Ray on trumpet, John Gilmore on tenor, and Luqman Ali on drums – and titles include "Saturn Research", "Media Dreams", "Year Of The Sun", "Constellation", and the haunting straight jazz piece "Twigs At Twilight". Expanded 2CD version features a huge amount of unheard music – a full disc of bonus tracks that includes "Friendly Galaxy", "An Unbeknown Love", "Of Other Tomorrows Never Know", "Images", "The Truth About Planet Earth", "The Shadow World", and even a version of "Space Is The Place"!

✨✧ Aaron CohenMove On Up – Chicago Soul Music & Black Cultural Power ... Book
University Of Chicago, 2019. New Copy ... $16.99 20.00
A tremendous achievement from music writer Aaron Cohen – a book that finally gets at the deeper, richer story of Chicago soul – the spirit of empowerment and pride that have always made us so honored to be part of the Windy City legacy! Cohen picks up where other soul writers have left off on Chicago – really looking at the shifts into the 70s, which included greater ties to the means of production, and an increased role in the social agenda as well – all part of an evolution in songwriting styles, production techniques, and the growing power of the full length album over the 7" single! Cohen looks at many key figures of the time – Earth Wind & Fire, Chaka Khan & Rufus, Curtis Mayfield, Phil Cohran & The Artistic Heritage Ensemble – and the very well-researched book is a delight to read throughout – easily the deepest work that Cohen's ever given us. 234 pages, softcover, with some black and white images – and a selected discography too.

Nathan PlagemanHighlife Saturday Night – Popular Music & Social Change In Urban Ghana (hardcover) ... Book
Indiana University Press, 2012. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A mighty deep look at the sound of highlife music in west Africa – one that not only deals with the sounds of the style, but also looks at the larger context of change in Ghana – especially as the nation's cities were on the rise in the postwar years! The book is incredibly well-researched – there's over 50 pages of notes at the back – and the details here really illuminate the cultural changes and political struggles that were always a part of shifting sounds on the scene. The writing is very dense – this is an academic book, after all – but that's also part of its strength – and the book features a small number of black and white images, and is 318 pages, hardcover.

Well, maybe the story's not totally "untold" – but Ben Westhoff paints a picture that's a lot more detailed than most, and with a good sense of historical perspective – past the hype and the grudges, with a good eye towards clarifying some of the trickier issues! Westhoff spent over five years researching the book, and the details definitely show in the writing – although Ben also provides a nice narrative flow to really keep things moving. The vibe's a bit like his book Dirty South – on the southern rap scene – and this edition is 422 pages, with a section of images in the middle. Book

RPM (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 3 CDs ... $24.99
A fantastic collection of gems from the glam rock years – music that's much more obscure than the bigger work of the time by artists like Bowie, Bolan, or Queen – and which instead represents this amazing untapped underground that really opens up our understanding of the time! Some of these groups hit bigger fame in the world of hard rock – and there's definitely a few classic acts on here too – but the package is also full of smaller-name groups who are draped in fuzz guitar, pounding heavy drums, and singing with plenty of attitude – all to give England the kick in the ass that it needed in the years before punk! The production is often as fantastic as the performance – all the elements compressed up together in the best glammish way, which makes even sweet moments sound oddly sinister – and as with other packages of this nature from Cherry Red, the notes are as superb as the set list – showing that the careful choices of cuts were extremely thoughtful and well-researched. 60 tracks in all – with work by Buster, Hector, Bilbo Baggins, One Hit Wonders, Iron Virgin, Slowload, James Hogg, Milk N Cookies, Third World War, Ning, Stevie Wright, Sweeny Todd, Biggles, Mint, Tank, John Henry, Rococo, Metro, Brett Smiley, Redhead, Hot Rod, Baby Grande, Lemming, The Jets, and many more.

One of the best funky compilations ever! The folks at Stones Throw Records – home of some of the most funk-inspired hip hop of the past decade – have dug through the crates to come up with this incredible batch of 19 tunes, all well-researched, nicely remastered, and offered up here on a 100% legit basis! But even more than that, the selection of music is incredible – killer funky tunes of the sort that you'd shell out plenty for on 45, moving way past the standard loud funk mode, into a hip realm of jazz-tinged expression, complicated enough for today's beatheads, yet straightforward enough to keep the groove going! Titles include "Fish Head" by Slim & The Soulful Saints, "The Dump" by Soul Vibrations, "What About You" by Co Real Artists, "The Kick" by The Rhythm Machine, "Kashmere" by Kashmere Stage Band, "Tighten Up Tighter" by Billy Ball & The Upsetters, "Beautiful Day" by Spider Harrison, "Southside Funk" by Soul Seven, "In The Rain" by The Wooden Glass with Billy Wooten, and "Go To Work" by Revolution Compared To What.

VariousTechnicolor Paradise – Rhum Rhapsodies & Other Delights (3CD set) ... CD
Numero, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 3CD ... $26.99 34.98
An insane new chapter in the mighty legacy of the Numero Group – not the rare soul, obscure psych, or underground folk the label has covered with other releases – but instead a huge batch of under-discovered gems from the exotica scene of the postwar years – essentially the farther reaches of the bigger scene that had stars like Martin Denny and Les Baxter in the spotlight! In case you're not hip, the exotica groove is kind of a hipper take on the Pacific Islands sounds – not mainstream Hawaiian music, but instead usually small combo material that has lots of percussion mixed with electric instrumentation, either on guitar or keyboards – set to imagined themes of life in the south seas, often in a very cool mix of jazz and dreamy modes. The music here is every bit as well-researched and deeply-dug as that on other Numero compilations – and it's fascinating to hear just how many folks were influenced by the huge exotic movement of the late 50s – and were motivated to turn out their own takes on the music, sometimes with styles that rivaled that of the big records of the time – sometimes with very weird and offbeat modes that are even more striking! As always with Numero, the presentation is superb – a huge set of notes with an equally large amount of music – all served up in a mighty handsome package, with work by Bill & Jean Bradway, The Shelltones, The Voodoos, The Jaguars, Jerry & The Catalinas, The Gems, The Blazers, Chayns, The Palatons, Red Harrison & His Zodiacs, The Melody Mates, The Monzas, Carmen, Darla Hood, The Baton Of Andre Brummer, Joan Joyce Trio, The Castiles, The Potted Palm, Don Sargent & His Buddies, Clyde Derby, Chico Jose, Arnie Derksen & Chise, The Slaves, Bruce Norman Quintet, and many more.

As always with Numero, the presentation is superb – a huge set of notes with an equally large amount of music – all served up in a mighty handsome package, with work by Bill & Jean Bradway, The Shelltones, The Voodoos, The Jaguars, Jerry & The Catalinas, The Gems, The Blazers, Chayns, The Palatons, Red Harrison & His Zodiacs, The Melody Mates, The Monzas, Carmen, Darla Hood, The Baton Of Andre Brummer, Joan Joyce Trio, The Castiles, The Potted Palm, Don Sargent & His Buddies, Clyde Derby, Chico Jose, Arnie Derksen & Chise, The Slaves, Bruce Norman Quintet, and many more.
