ResidentsEskimo (2CD edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Ralph (UK), 1979. New Copy 2 CDs ... $15.99
Seminal sounds from The Residents – a record that's purportedly inspired by the ceremonial music of the Eskimo – but it's very a much a Residents album, and one that follows their own absurdist adventuresome impulses! There's often this cold, drifting wave of sound in the background that's as chilly as you'd expect – and on top of the sound effects and all around trippy electronic atmosphere, they're supposedly playing instruments made of the guts and bones of arctic wildlife! Titles include "The Walrus Hunt", "Birth", "Arctic Hysteria", "The Angry Angakok", "A Spirit Steals A Child", and "The Festival Of Death". 2CD edition features a bonus CD of "Eskimo Ephemera" – with 22 bonus tracks that include "Kenya", "Scottish Rhapsody", "Diskomo", "Disaster", "Plants", "Twinkle", "Heart In SF", "Dumbo The Clown Who Loved Christmas", "Time's Up", "The Sleeper", and even an "Eskimo Opera Proposal".

ResidentsFingerprince ... LP
Ralph, Mid 70s. Very Good+ ... $24.99
Prime weirdness from The Residents! It's fair to consider Fingerprince as a transitional effort from the group, though it's not a dismissible one – it's out there, exciting and may be easier to get all the way through than some of the more anti-pop experiments they delivered in the mid-to-late 70s. It's probably not as confrontational as Meet The Residents and Third Reich 'N Roll – or perhaps it just seems less vicious because the cover art isn't as confrontational. Side one has shorter pieces, which seem to be informed by vintage exotica and field recordings, though it sounds like nothing but the Residents. Side 2 is a single long suite. Titles include "You Yesyesyes", "Home Age Conversation", "Godsong", "March De La Winni", "Bossy", "Boo Who?", "Tournequit Of Roses" and the the 17+ minute, side-long "Six Things To A Cycle".

ResidentsMeet The Residents ... LP
Ralph, 1974. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Mindblowing sounds from The Residents – and a key link between arty experimentalism of the 60s and some of the darker noise moments of the 70s! The sound is incredibly rich – layers of textures coming from instruments played by the group, and supposedly material from their huge archive of tapes collected over the span of a decade. Throughout, there's a playful feel that really keeps things appealing – a subtle sense of humor that's never as stoned-out as the Zappa generation, hidden under the enigmatic trappings of the group. Titles include "Boots", "Smelly Tongues", Rest Aria", "Guylum Bardot", "N-Er-Gee", "Spotted Pinto Bean", and "Consuelo's Departure". LP, Vinyl record album
(Recent reissue on MVD Audio.)

ResidentsMole Box – The Complete Mole Trilogy Preserved (Mark Of The Mole/Tunes Of Two Cities/Big Bubble/Mole Show/bonus tracks) (6CD set) ... CD
Ralph (UK), Early 80s. New Copy 6CD ... $34.99
The complete Mole Trilogy from The Residents – a complicated longform work that dominated most of their recordings in the mid 80s, and which created a fair bit of bonus material and sidebar songs – all of which are compiled in this massive 6CD set! The Mole storyline is a very loose narrative used to give a bit more structure than usual to the group's offbeat mix of electronics, processed vocals, and all the strange instrumentation that made them a key bridge between academic experiments of the postwar years, and more progressive work to come in the postpunk scenes around the globe. The group always hid their identity, and were perhaps even more hidden than usual behind this long storyline – while still spinning out the kinds of sounds that always held their audiences rapt, and kept their listeners guessing. CD features the full albums Mark Of The Mole, Tunes Of Two Cities, The Big Bubble, and The Mole Show – plus bonus tracks for each album, a full bonus CD of another Mole show in Washington in 1983, and a bonus CD of Miscellaneous Mole Material – all with a big booklet of notes.

ResidentsNickle If Your Dick's This Big – 1971/1972 (The We***** B*** Album/BS) ... CD
Ralph (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99
Amazing early work from The Residents – unreleased tracks from the first few years of the 70s – partly done as demos, but work that already shows the mixture of wit and sonic experimentation that would mark the group for decades to come! It's a bit hard to sum of the quality of these tracks in words – but that's usually the case with any Residents album – but to our ears, it almost feels as if the music was created by kids who might have loved the mad universe of Frank Zappa and Captain Beefheart, but who could never play their instruments that well – and who were also trying very hard not to be mistaken for hippies! Instead, there's almost this mix of noise, art, and wit that prefaces some of the experimental Ohio work that would come out on 7" singles a few years later – although maybe less song-based overall, especially on the first album of material here. The 2CD set brings together work issued on vinyl as The W***** B*** Album and BS, with two unreleased tracks too – titles that include "We Stole This Riff", "Deepsea Diver Song", "King Kong", "Chris' Party", "Phillip's Wedding Concentrate", "The Boarding House Show", and "Mad Sawmill Of Copenhagen", in many parts.

Ralph, 1978. Very Good+ ... $16.99
Always-enigmatic sounds from The Residents – a bit more fully-formed than some of their earliest recordings, but still sprawled out nicely over the space of the full album! There's almost an Eraserhead feel to the music at times – dreamy, yet creepy – and other moments bring in some avant jazz tones, yet played without any jazz chops at all – more as sonic textures that nestle down nicely in the mix of noise and surprising melodic moments. Titles include "Edweena", "The Making Of A Soul", and "Ship's A Going Down". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ ResidentsGod In Three Persons (3CD preserved edition) ... CD
Ralph (UK), 1988. New Copy 3CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really unique album from The Residents – maybe one of their most unified records, and done in an unusual narrative style that has spoken word passages over their usual offbeat sounds! There's a nice current of wit in the record at times – and it's almost as if The Residents are trying to match some of the energy of their Bay Area contemporaries Negativland with the album – although with a different sonic approach, and less of the cutting and mixing. Given that there's always been something of a soundtrack vibe in some of the group's music, the approach here works perfectly – on titles that include "Their Early Years", "Loss Of A Loved One", "Hard & Tenderly", "Kiss Of Flesh", and "Silver Sharp & Could Not Care". 3CD edition features lots of bonus material! CD2 features the original soundtrack recording – with titles that include "The Thing About Them", "The Touch", "The Service", "Confused", and "Pain & Pleasure" – plus bonus tracks "Knot In A Million Years", "G3P Over", and "Double Shot". CD3 features God In 3 Persons "ephemera" – a mixture of live, demo tracks, and alternate mixes! CD

✨✧ ResidentsResidents Commercial Album (2CD edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Ralph (UK), 1980. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A genius moment for the Residents – a record in which they not only claim to go "commercial", by playing some tuneful songs throughout – but one in which they also claim that most pop music is the same as contemporary commercials – which means that all the songs here are just a minute long! The combination of modes is completely charming, and a wonderful refinement of all the genius that got the Residents going in these early years – and the shortness of the tunes, combined with the electronics and weird instrumentation, almost makes the record feel more like a relic from the cooler side of the German new wave – especially work by Der Plan. Titles include "Easter Woman", "Amber", "Japanese Watercolor", "Art Of Being Polite", "Medicine Man", "Tragic Bells", "Loss Of Innocence", "Simple Song", "My Second Wife", "Floyd", and lots lots more! 2CD version features lots more songs from the project – 12 more that include "Kraftwerk", "Cosmetics For Reality", "Pretty Baby", "Tuxedoes", and "Roscoe's Righteous Rodent" – plus 24 unreleased bonus tracks too!

Joe PassSounds Of Synanon ... LP
Pacific Jazz, 1961. Sealed ... $14.99
A landmark record in the west coast jazz scene – not only for the music, but for its understanding of addiction on the scene! The album brings together a set of jazz players currently spending their time at Synanon – the Santa Monica-based program of drug rehabilitation that was working some incredible magic with longtime addicts in the early 60s. Synanon had been a temporary home to more than a few great players over the years, and this set brings together some of its lesser-known residents – one of whom was guitarist Joe Pass, who would rise from the session as a real success, and go onto record heavily after this record. The rest of the group includes Dave Allan on trumpet, Ronald Clark on bass, Arnold Ross on piano, Candy Latson on bongos, Bill Crawford on drums, and Greg Dykes on baritone sax. Tracks are pretty long, and more solo based than the usual Pacific Jazz sides – and titles include "CED", "Aaron's Song", "Projections", "Stay Loose", "Hang Tough", and "Last Call For Coffee".

Tony SchwartzNueva York – A Tape Documentary Of Puerto Rican New Yorkers ... CD
Folkways, 1955. New Copy ... $12.99 16.99
Great work from Tony Schwartz – one of the most compelling artists to ever record for the Folkways Records label, and almost more of a filmmaker than anything else! The set's a compelling audio documentary on the new and growing community of Puerto Rican residents in New York – particularly those in upper Manhattan – and it mostly features spoken passages by new immigrants, older residents of the city, and some who were opposed to the changing social scale – all with fascinating details about the struggles and triumphs of this growing side of the city. Most tracks are relatively short – there's 36 in all – and the recording quality really reflects that many voices involved in the project, with some great on-site elements, and a few other sonic surprises along the way! CD
(Special limited CD – pressed up for us by the Smithsonian Folkways label. Comes with original cover artwork, and the CD also features a PDF file with the original liner notes and other materials from the original record release.)

VariousLondon Is The Place For Me Vol 7 – Calypso, Palm Wine, Mento, Joropo, Steel, & Stringband ... LP
Honest Jons (UK), 1950s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $23.99
A fascinating look at musical modes in London during the big years of postwar immigration – a time when former residents of the crumbling British Empire were flooding to London for jobs and a better way of life – often bringing along a huge amount of cultural experience in the process! This set follows wonderfully in the spirit of previous volumes of the series – bringing together a range of different sonic styles that were originally recorded in London as 78rpm singles – where a new wave of Caribbean and West African immigrants were fusing older styles with a newly modern sensibility, and often a fair bit of jazz as well! The set list is wonderful – a great array of well-chosen material – and titles include "Wa Sise" by Willie Payne & The Starlite Tempos, "The Emperor Of Africa" by The Mighty Terror, "Royal Wedding" by The Lion, "Modern Telephone" by Dai Dai Simba, "Sons & Daughters Of Africa" by Lord Beginner, "Caroline" by Trinidad Steel Band, "Ema Foju Ana Woku" by West African Rhythm Brothers, "Kana Kana" by Billy Sholanke, "Boul Ve Se" by Calypso Rhythm Kings, and "My Handy Man" by Marie Bryant.

Honest Jons (UK), 1950s. New Copy 2CD ... $24.99
A great double header from Honest Jons – a 2CD set that brings together volumes 7 and 8 of their London Is The Place For Me series! Volume 7 is first – a fascinating look at musical modes in London during the big years of postwar immigration – a time when former residents of the crumbling British Empire were flooding to London for jobs and a better way of life – often bringing along a huge amount of cultural experience in the process! This set follows wonderfully in the spirit of previous volumes of the series – bringing together a range of different sonic styles that were originally recorded in London as 78rpm singles – where a new wave of Caribbean and West African immigrants were fusing older styles with a newly modern sensibility, and often a fair bit of jazz as well!

Volume 8 features a huge collection of work from the great Lord Kitchener – maybe one of the most important singers to move the music of the Caribbean to British shores during the postwar years – a time when he was a strong voice to new waves of immigrants arriving in London, and when he was also making a lot of inroads for criss-crossing post-colonial culture too! The base style is calypso, but Kitchener always handles the music with a spirit that's all his own – modern, witty, and urbane – often with some nice currents of jazz in the instrumentation, and plenty of social commentary that made music like this a great precursor to later righteous moments in jazz, funk, soul, and reggae. Titles include "No More Taxi", "Food From The West Indies", "Come Back In The Morning", "Pirates Of Paria", "Drink A Rum", "If You Brown", "Life Begins At Forty", "Mistress Jacob", "Africa My Home", "Kitch In The Jungle", "Tie Tongue Mopsie", and "London Is The Place For Me".

✨✧ VariousThird Noise Principle – Formative North American Electronica 1975 to 1984 (4CD set) ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 4CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic entry in the Close To The Noise Floor series – one that looks at early American experiments with electronics – but from the DIY generation that was unlocking access to technology that had previously been in the hands of bigger label artists and the academic electronic scene! The work here is a great partner to UK changes in the punk years and beyond – and, no surprise, some of these artists gained greater fame overseas, where their sounds resonated strongly with music from Sheffield, Manchester, Berlin, and other cities on the continent. And if you think you can guess what's coming, then guess again – because there's so much material here, the 4CD set really goes into some deeper, darker corners – and also pulls together work from different areas of the underground that most folks wouldn't normally connect. So while there's familiar names from labels like Ralph or RRR, there's also a lot more surprises – amidst selections by Richard Bone, Data Bank A, Tone Set, Psyche, Patrick Cowley, Mental Anguish, Controlled Bleeding, Psyclones, Lon C Diehl, Suicide, Residents, Chrome, If Bwana, Terry Riley, Geoffrey Landers, Futurisk, Dark Day, K Leimer, Hunting Lodge, Boy Dirt Car, Smersh, Steve Roach, John Bender, Ministry, Move, Nash The Slash, Tuxedomoon, and many others. Comes with a great book-styled package – pages and pages of notes on the music, with lots of images and record covers too! CD

✨✧ Ben AustenHigh Risers – Cabrini Green & The Fate Of American Public Housing (hardcover) ... Book
Harper, 2018. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic book about a key locale in this fair city of ours – Chicago's famous Cabrini Green housing project, and all of the many challenges it faced as the decades moved on! Author Ben Austen has a great outlook on the project – as he moves past overdone cliches and oft-told stories about poor planning and underfunding – and instead also brings in the spirit of the community that grew around the housing site, and who shifted their goals and needs with the changes that took place in the 60s, 70s, and 80s – a story of survival and spirit that's augmented by the individual voices of residents of the towers. Austen mixes together history and urban theory with a good number of interviews – letting the longtime residents of Cabrini Green help shape a tale that often never features any input from the people who matter the most. 384 pages, hardcover. Book

Warner, 1970. Very Good- Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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. Cover has some wear and marker.)
