Rocket 88 (Jack Bruce/Charlie Watts/Alexis Korner)Rocket 88 ... CD
Atlantic/Wounded Bird, 1981. New Copy ... $11.99 12.99
An album with a cheesy sort of cover – one that almost looks like it's about to melt – and one that hides the great all-star talents within – a lineup that includes Alexis Corner on guitar, Jack Bruce on bass, and Charlie Watts on drums! Yet maybe even better than the non-rockers on the date – as the group also features tenor from Hal Singer and Don Weller, and piano from both Bob Hall and George Green – both of whom really smoke up the keys in a very old-school mode! Korner and Bruce each sing a bit on the set, but the main focus also seems to be in the mix of R&B and bluesy currents from all the instrumentalists – who also include Colin Smith on trumpet and John Picard on trombone. Titles include "Roadhouse Boogie", "Rocket 88", "Waiting For The Call", "St Louis Blues", and "Talking About Louise". CD

Rocket From The CryptLive From Camp X-Ray (yellow splatter vinyl pressing) ... LP
Vagrant, 2002. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $22.99 23.98
A ferocious blast from the mighty Rocket From The Crypt! Contrary to the title, Live From Camp X-Ray is NOT a live album, but it has the force and drive of their live vibe – something that arguably eluded the band on even their more celebrated major label albums, but they finally managed to pull off a little later on. Even with some creative twists here like a string section on a couple tracks, it is a BLAST that doesn't let up for 1 second of its running time! RFTC is a one of kind band that managed to bridge roaring proto rock you could trace back to The Burnette Brothers, to the horn-backed rock-n-soul of Blood Sweat & Tears, to the unrelenting energy of the first few Ramones albums – exhilarating stuff! Includes "I'm Not Invisible", "Get Down", "Bring Us Bullets", "I Can't Feel My Head", "Outsider" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

The third Ramones album, one that a sizeable chuck of the most zealous fans believes to be their very best – and they might be right! As rightfully heralded as the self-titled debut is for being the trailblazing blast and unimpeachable punk rock epiphany that it is, The Ramones really their found and perfected their signature studio sound on the follow up Leave Home and perhaps perfect it here Rocket To Russia.

✨✧ Gijs HendriksDom Rocket ... CD
Timeless/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Overlooked work from Gijs Hendriks – one of the more expressive saxophonists of the Dutch scene of the 70s – and a player who can work equally well in both avant and straighter jazz settings! Hendriks definitely echoes both here – sometimes really stretching out on a line that will completely transform the sound of a standard, then coming back with a warmer style on a more personal tune – then stepping sideways to throw in a bit of bop as well! The rest of the group do a great job of matching the leader's energy throughout – with Michael Herr on piano, Bert Van Erk on bass, and Michael Baird on percussion – alongside Gijs' work on soprano, alto, tenor, and clarinet. Titles include "A Minor Foolin", "Tenor Piece", "Sophisticated Lady", "I'll Remember April", and "Valse Melancholique". CD

8th Wonders Of The World8th Wonders Of The World (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Sundazed/Beat Rocket, Mid 60s. New Copy ... $15.99 16.99
These guys may not exactly be the 8th Wonder Of The World – but they're a pretty darn great 60s group nonetheless, and one who are finally getting their due with this well-done full length collection! The quartet emerged on the New York scene at a time when new musical modes were really opening up – echoes of The Beatles coming into play with some of the rawer garage elements cooked up on the west coast – touched maybe with a bit of nascent psych, all at a level that never saw full fruition at the time, given that the Vietnam war got in the way of the group's ability to work together! The set only features two records that were issued at the time – one on the Uptite label, the other on Coed – alongside some even more wonderful unissued material that really shows the group moving into very trippy territory of their own. Titles include "Summer Dreamin", "Must Have Your Love", "Give Me A Try", "Say Whaddaya Say", "Who Cares", "Must Have Your Love", "You You Yeah", "Susie Got The Word", and "Every Time I See You Baby". CD features two unissued Alderson Studio versions of "Every Time I See You Baby" and 'If You Knew What I Had". CD

Elton JohnRegimental Sgt Zippo ... CD
Rocket/Universal, Late 60s. New Copy ... $14.99 15.99
Some of the earliest recordings ever of songs by Elton John & Bernie Taupin – tracks cut at the studios of publisher Dick James Music – the guy who'd soon make enough money from Elton to launch his own record label! The set's almost a lost first album by Elton, as tracks were cut in late 1967 and early 1968 – one never-released track, and lots of early takes on material that would get cut later. The style's a bit different than Elton in later years – still the same soulfulness on vocals, but a bit more psych in the instrumentation – all of which makes for a great "what if?" sort of moment in his early career! Titles include "Tartan Coloured Lady", "When I Was Tealby Abbey", "Sitting Doing Nothing", "Angel Tree", "Regimental Sgt Zippo", "Watching The Planes Go By", "Hourglass", "A Dandelion Dies In The Wind", and "Turn To Me".

Beat Rocket, 1967. New Copy ... $23.99 24.99
The Little Bits are little kids, but don't hold that against them – as there's an intensity to this record that feels much more like some Texas psych of the time, and which hardly fits the sweeter image of the group on the cover! The quartet only issued one single back in the 60s – but now, they finally get their full due in this amazing batch of lost material – heavy on fuzzy bass, sinister keyboards, and some surprisingly gritty vocals – way different than anything we might have expected from the cover! Trust us, this set is great – as gritty and garagey as any of the older, long-haired cats from the time – with titles that include "Girl Give Me Love", "Corner Store", "Turn Around", "Evil On My Mind", "Houston To LA", "Do Wrong Lucy", "Spoofin", and "Clearwater Georgia".

PreachersStay Out Of My World (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Sundazed/Beat Rocket, Mid 60s. New Copy ... $15.99 16.99
The Preachers may be wearing priest-style collars on the cover, but the group have a sinister sound that's quite far from anything you'll hear in church – a sinister South Cali blend of guitar, organ, and just a bit of fuzz – very much like some of the best styles coming out of the Sunset Strip scene at the time! In truth, these guys hail from a bit farther north, up in the San Fernando Valley – but they've got a rock-solid quality here to match some of the best indie legends of the LA scene of the time – territory that the group almost hit with a handful of releases on the Moonglow and Pep Records labels. Those rare singles are combined here with five unissued tracks – all to make a much-needed full length look at a group who fell apart just as they were coming together – on titles that include "The Zeke", "Stay Out Of My World", "Just Don't Complain", "Chicken Papa", "Pain & Sorrow", "Hey Joe", "Who Do You Love", "Moanin", and "Quit Talkin Bout Him". CD features two bonus tracks – an early version of "Moanin" and "Quit Talkin Bout Him (publishing demo)". CD

RadiatorIsn't It Strange (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Rocket/Big Pink (South Korea), 1977. New Copy ... $18.99 22.99
The only album from this well-crafted British group of the 70s – a sextet that features a fair bit of vocal work from Alan Hull of Lindisfarne, but in a way that's very different than his material for that earlier group! As with an artist like Al Stewart, these guys clearly started out in folk, but really electrify things and work in a different style overall – using some of the best new Brit studio techniques to layer in some subtle energy to the tunes, but in ways that are different from the tighter American styles used in AOR. The results are pretty nice overall, and a great reminder that in 1977, British record companies still had a lot more on their minds than punk rock – as you'll hear on titles that include "Spittin In The Wind", "Isn't It Strange", "Lay Back & Dream", "Love Is The Alibi", "A Walk In The Sea", "Corporation Rock", and "Madmen & Loonies".

The best tracks are the ones in which the band kicks back and opens up over a jam – stretching out with some spacious work on guitar, sax, and keyboards – without the vocals that mar a few of the other cuts. Tracks include "Whirligig", "Chappaqua", "Last Detail", and "Third Line". LP, Vinyl record album

Brilliant work from a Long Island group who are really known for just one famous single, but who also managed to cut a few other tracks at the time – all brought together here to make a long-overdue album for the group! "Valley Of Death" is the group's sole single – a great garage reworking of the poem "The Charge Of The Light Brigade", taken into really sinister territory – issued under the name of The Whatever, although the group also existed as The Raincoats and The Lookouts, both of who are featured here – alongside two very cool car dealership songs the group cut for Wolfinger Dodge! Titles include "The Valley Of Death", "More Than Fair", "Conscience", "Stranger", "No More Do I Dream", "You're Mine", "Away From You", and "Talking Out Of Turn" – plus two cool "Wolfinger Dodge" jingles, with surprisingly profane announcements!

A really great little collection, and one that definitely delivers the grit promised in the title – served up here on an assortment of super-rare garage rock tracks from the glory days of the mid 60s – that moment when it seemed as if every spare space in America was filled with a local band rehearsing their guitar-driven dreams with a new sort of intensity! If you dig work by The Seeds, Standells, and other big names of the generation, you'll find plenty to love here – but served up by a host of great acts that we never would have discovered otherwise – brought to light by the efforts of the folks at Beat Rocket. The set even includes a young Jerry Mathers (of Leave It To Beaver fame) making a rare rock track – on "Happiness Is Havin" by Beaver & The Trappers – served up next to cuts that include "Makin Love" by The Sloths, "Crystalize Your Mind" by Living Children, "You're Bringing Me Down" by Trans Atlantic Train, "I'll Cry" by the Soul Owners, "Don't Be Surprised" by The Satyrs, and "I'll Get My Way" by The Chimney Sweeps.

VariousPotato Chip – Crunchy Dunwich Guitar (blue vinyl pressing) ... LP
Dunwich/Beat Rocket, Mid 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $32.99 34.99
A deep deep dive into the legendary Dunwich label – the Chicago imprint that was home to a few big acts in the 60s, but also managed to record a heck of a lot of great music that never fully got its due! If you know the Dunwich sound, it's a raw, garagey approach to rock that often makes some of its material the sort of proto-punk rarities that were years ahead of their time – every bit as full of fuzz and freak as some of the headiest work in Texas and Detroit during the same underground generation – although often a lot more obscure! The double-length set is overflowing with greatness – 36 titles that include "If You're Ready" by The Pride & Joy, "Project Blue" by The Banshees, "Everytime" by The Del-Vetts, "Quit Your Lowdown Ways" by George Edwards & Friends, "Lonely I" by The Warner Brothers, "I'm Not Talkin" by Things To Come, "She" by The Rovin Kind, "You Don't Know Better" by Saturday's Children, "Stand Tall" by The Luv'd Ones, "Ungle Wiggly's Airship" by The Shadows Of Knight, "You Don't Know Like I Know" by The Mauds, and "Same Old Thing" by The Light Nights" – plus a potato chip radio ad by the Shadows Of Knight, and an electric company ad by Saturday's Children.

Most of the work here was never issued at the time – but the tracks work fantastically together as a full album – showing not just the group's great ear for their own sort of catchy, colorful tunes – but also a real love of The Beatles, who they cover here on a number of tracks – clearly a strong inspiration for their sound, although The Vandals really make things sound very different than the fab four! Titles include "We're The Vandals", "I Saw Her In A Mustang", "Alright", "The Night Before", "Charlie Brown", "Another Girl", "The Joker", "Lies", "Stop Get A Ticket", "I Need You", "Mystery", and "Do You Love Me".

This package definitely blows away previous collections of work on the label – and has a very different vibe too, as you might guess from the Kiss-style makeup of the group who play on the cover! For some reason, only three of these cuts saw the light of day at the end of the 60s – which makes the whole thing a wonderfully rich discovery – full of the kind of raw, rare, hard rock treasures you usually find on more metal-centric labels. Titles include "Back Street Queen" and "Slave Driver" by Eclipse, "Stone Mountain" by The Other Side, "They'll Pass Me By" and "Day Dreams II" by Messick, "Don't Be A Fool" by Inner Circle, "Thor's Hammer" by Loyal Opposition, "Hey Joe" by Zero End, and "Don't Want To Be Alone" by High Voltage.

The amazing debut of Be Bop Deluxe – a record that's made up of all sorts of familiar parts, yet somehow really manages to set itself apart as a whole! The young Bill Nelson is at the top of his game here – a hell of a guitarist, which we sometimes forget in his later work – and a vocalist with a sinister edge that gives the record a sense of darkness that matches the compressed production and overall moody vibe – a child of the Bowie/Bolan generation, but one that's a real black sheep of the family too! The strength of the record is impossible to sum up in easy words – but it's there for the hearing, right from the very first note – on titles that include "Jet Silver & The Dolls Of Venus", "Axe Victim", "Love Is Swift Arrows", "No Trains To Heaven", "Jets At Dawn", "Rocket Cathedrals", and "Third Floor Heaven".

Bear Family (Germany), 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 2CDs ... $15.99 20.99
The lost legacy of the great Bill Carter – one of the more obscure figures on the California scene of the postwar years – and an artist who was every bit as much an early rocker as he was a country singer! Like so many of his Cali contemporaries, Carter had roots in the south, but headed west when the time was right – sometimes sporting western cowboy wear, but often sounding a lot more different than that guise might make you think! And different than some of his California contemporaries, Bill didn't record just in Bakersfield and LA – as much of the work here was done up north in the Bay Area, where Carter was a big figure in the clubs providing entertainment for new arrivals from points east. This 2CD set is almost a box set sort of introduction to Bill's work – as it features all his rare recordings, and also a number of early 60s tracks that never made it to vinyl – served up in a massive 67 track package, with cuts that include "Jailer Man", "Cool Tom Cat", "I Knew Her When", "Mama Loves Papa", "Long Lost Girl"- "Wild Strings", "Honeymoon On A Rocket Ship", "Seven Years", "Stowaway", "Secret Date", "Lookin Through The Bars", "Colt 45", and lots lots more!

A tremendous collection of work from the legendary Cerrone – one of the key forces in French disco of the 70s, and an artist who went on to have a huge impact on the sound of the dancefloor for decades to come! Cerrone's a master of minimal, repetitive rhythms – often stretched out on his early singles, and peppered with similar keyboards and electric elements to Giorgio Moroder's music of the time – but a bit warmer, sexier, and Frenchier overall! This set offers up 19 of Cerrone's classics from back in the day – many of which are served up in special funky edits for the package – with titles that include "Je Suis Music", "Supernature", "The Impact", "Give Me Love", "Freak Connection", "Love In C Minor", "You Are The One", "Bodytalk", "Hooked On You", "Rocket In The Pocket", "Club Underworld", and "Look For Love" – plus "2nd Chance", which features a guest appearance from Tony Allen.

The album's a masterpiece all the way through – driven by great percussion from the maestro, and swirled up into a heavenly mix at the legendary Trident studios – with some mighty sweet keyboards that really make the whole thing sparkle! There's a nice undercurrent of fuzz at points, too – hinting at French club to come – and the whole thing's a wonderful standard-setting record that really earns all the accolades it's gotten over the years. Titles include the long funky version of "Rocket In The Pocket" – plus "Je Suis Music", "Look For Love", and "Music Of Life". LP, Vinyl record album

Lyrics are in English, and sung with this really great edge – one that cuts even more strongly on top of the band's impeccable instrumentation as they soar through the album's well-crafted songs – a performance that was supposedly captured on a single day in the studio, which makes the quality of the work even that much more impressive! There's plenty of great organ lines in the mix, too – often played with a similar intensity to the guitars – and titles include "Old Man's Dream", "The Ocean Song", "Unfeeling", "Swords", "Future", "Praise To Our Basement", and "A Little Rocket Song".

Bobbie GentryGirl From Chickasaw County – Highlights ... CD
Capitol, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $27.99 29.99
A stunning tribute to the wonderful Bobbie Gentry – and maybe the first package to really show the world how much she has to offer past her one classic crossover hit! Bobbie started out like a rocket with the country gem "Ode To Billie Joe" – a tune she wrote herself, and followed with lots of other great music on her debut album – which then set the scene for a great expansion into other modes, as Capitol Records really opened up their resources for Gentry to record in the late 60s! This double-length set really gets at the full scope of sounds that Bobbie created for Capitol – and includes way more than hits, with some rare tracks from obscure later albums, singles, and even a big number of titles that didn't even see the light of day until a 2018 box set issued with a similar title. 2CD set features a massive 46 tracks in all – and tunes include the rare "Sweete Peony (alt)", "Sunday Mornin (alt)", "Conspiracy Of Homer Jones", "Let It Be Me (without strings)", "Apartment 21 (stereo)", "Smoke", "Joanne", "The Girl From Cincinnati", "Circle Round The Sun", "Seasons Come Seasons Go (demo)", "Refractions", "Courtyard", and "Sittin Pretty" – plus lots more titles that only first appeared in 2018.

Bobbie GentryGirl From Chickasaw County – Highlights ... LP
Capitol, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $36.99 38.99
A stunning tribute to the wonderful Bobbie Gentry – and maybe the first package to really show the world how much she has to offer past her one classic crossover hit! Bobbie started out like a rocket with the country gem "Ode To Billie Joe" – a tune she wrote herself, and followed with lots of other great music on her debut album – which then set the scene for a great expansion into other modes, as Capitol Records really opened up their resources for Gentry to record in the late 60s! This double-length set really gets at the full scope of sounds that Bobbie created for Capitol – and includes way more than hits, with some rare tracks from obscure later albums, singles, and even a big number of titles that didn't even see the light of day until a 2018 box set issued with a similar title. 2CD set features a massive 32 tracks in all – and tunes include the rare "Sweete Peony (alt)", "Sunday Mornin (alt)", "Conspiracy Of Homer Jones", "Let It Be Me (without strings)", "Apartment 21 (stereo)", "Smoke", "Joanne", "The Girl From Cincinnati", "Circle Round The Sun", "Seasons Come Seasons Go (demo)", "Refractions", "Courtyard", and "Sittin Pretty" – plus lots more titles that only first appeared in 2018. The set also features new remixes of "Casket Vignette" and "Recollection" – and the classic titles "Chickasaw County Child" and "Ode To Billie Joe". LP, Vinyl record album

RCA/BMG, 1972. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $33.99 34.98
An overlooked gem from The Kinks – a set that's got all the wit of their late 60s material, a bit of the rootsy currents of Muswell Hillbillies, and a lot more bite than the group would have in some of their next few albums to come! Ray Davies' pen is razor-sharp, as is his vocal approach – and the songs are maybe even more gritty than the group would have done a few years before – furthered by some of the instrumental currents that also bring in a few acoustic elements and some Americanized riffs, which are then also matched by an occasional twang in Ray's vocal presentation. Plus, the double-length set also features one album of studio material, and a second live album – almost as a "bonus" thrown in for good measure. Studio tracks include the hit "Celluloid Heroes", plus "Here Comes Yet Another Day", "Maximum Constipation", "Unreal Reality", "Hot Potatoes", "Motorway", and "Supersonic Rocket Ship" – and live cuts include "Skin & Bone", "Alcohol", "Banana Boat Song", "Lola", "Holiday", and "Mr Wonderful".

Great early work from Lake – playing here in a number of different settings, but always with well-matched collaborators! 3 tracks on the set – "Owshet", "Heavy Spirits", and "While Pushing Down Turn" – featuring Lake with Olu Dara on trumpet, Donald Smith on piano, Victor Lewis on drums, and Stafford James on bass, playing in sort of a freebop mode. Three more tracks – "Movement Equals Creation", "Intensity", and "Altoviolin" – feature Lake on alto, playing with a violin trio that sounds very dark and moody. "Rocket" is a trio piece, with Joseph Bowie and Charles Bobo Shaw – and "Lonely Blacks" is a somber solo sax piece. LP, Vinyl record album

Jean-Pierre Massiera & OthersMidnight Massiera – The B-Music Of Jean-Pierre Massiera ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $24.99 30.99
Mad music from Jean-Pierre Massiera – the legendary producer who was steeped in the hippest sounds of the French scene of the 60s, then moved to Quebec to forge a wild style that was all his own! Jean-Pierre rarely ever issued work under his own name – and instead recorded under a host of pseudonyms, or in projects with other artists – which made for an ever-shifting array of new names, new sounds, and unusual records – a good deal of which are collected here in this set! The package really focuses on the freakiest side of Massiera's sound – the fuzzy, electric qualities that were first picked up from a European scene that included early prog, analog electronics, and hip pop experiments by folks like Pierre Henry or Jean-Claude Vannier – moved well into Massiera's own territory over the course of recordings like this – with lots of weird studio tricks, odd effects, and other hip bits. There's a really funky feel to many of the tracks here – that psyche-funk groove you might find on other Finders Keepers collections – and Andy Votel has written some very copious notes for the package, fully detailing Jean-Pierre's massive (and massively weird!) musical legacy. 18 tracks in all – including "Space Woman" by Herman's Rocket, "Onomatopaeia" by Human Egg, "Bizarre" by Les Chats Renaissance, "Visitors" by Visitors, "Ivresse Des Profondeurs" by SEM Studios, "L'Eletrocute" by Jesus, "Itubo Del Anno" by Basile, "Mao Mao" by The Starlights, "Pop Or Not" by Chico Magnetic Band, "Kriminal Theme" by Les Maledictus Sound, "Egg" by Atlantide, "Sing Sing" by Chris Gallbert, and "Secret La Vielle Dame" by Afterlife.

Elektra, 1969. Used ... $6.99
Forget The Stooges, forget Alice Cooper, forget the White Stripes, and maybe even forget Funkadelic – because this landmark album is one that really put the ferocity of the Detroit scene on the map – rising up the city's legacy of raw sounds next to their better-known soul and pop of the 60s – and forever putting MC5 on the great rock and roll map! The group had been honing their craft in the city for a few years before this set – and it was the genius of Elektra Records to capture them live at the city's Grande Ballroom, and not in the studio – which is part of the intensity of the record's charm, especially on the sometimes-edited bit of profanity. Titles include the seminal "Kick Out The Jams", plus "Come Together", "Rocket Reducer No 62", "Borderline", "Motor City Is Burning", "I Want You Right Now", and "Starship". CD

There's a nicely updated vibe to the set – a touch of early 90s new jack in some of the rhythms – and the whole thing's got an infectious vibe right from the start – maybe even more timeless and soulful than some of Cymone's classic records from back in the day! In addition to Andre, the quartet features work from St Paul Peterson, Mic Murphy, and Gardner Cole – on titles that include "I Wanna Be The One", "Back In The Day", "Blue Tuesday", and "Private Time". Plus, this CD features a lot more tracks than the Vinyl EP – other cuts that include "Get Down", "One On One", "Gonna Love You Right", "Dreamin", "Love Foundation", "Midnight Revelation", "Ball Of Confusion", and "Tied To Your Rocket".

Impulse, 1972. Used ... $6.99
A brilliant record by Sun Ra & The Arkestra – and an album that forever gave them a slogan to live by! The record's different than some of the other Arkestra work from the time – in that it's a bit tighter and more spiritual, more in keeping with the style of the Blue Thumb label, for which it was recorded – and soaring along on a wave of post-Coltrane spiritual jazz enthusiasm. Side one features the ultimate recording of "Space Is The Place" – an anthemic tune that blends chanting, modal rhythms, and some incredibly soulful solo work – making for one of the Arkestra's most perfectly realized tunes! That gem runs for over 20 minutes – and other shorter tracks on the album include "Discipline", "Images", "Sea Of Sound", and "Rocket Number Nine". CD

Now Again, Late 60s/1970s. New Copy 3 CDs ... $13.99 29.98
Amazing sounds from The Stark Reality – an obscure group from the early 70s, but one who've really risen to fame over the years – thanks to their groundbreaking ear for new music, and their freewheeling way with a funky groove! This package brings together all the incredible work recorded by the group in the late 60s and early 70s – a mindblowing assortment of funky and fuzzy jazz tracks – almost all of which are graced by the offbeat vibes work of Monty Stark! Stark often adds a bit of distortion into his instrument, which makes for a very tripped-out approach to vibes – one that blends perfectly with the heavy funk of some of the rhythms, and the freaky guitar lines added to most tracks by a young John Abercrombie. Yet at other times, things are very laidback and chilled-out – balanced beautifully from track to track, in a way that illustrates the larger picture the group were always going for in their music. This massive package brings together everything Stark Reality ever recorded – their famous Discovers Hoagy Carmichael's Music Shop album, the Acting Thinking Feeling live performance, the Roller Coaster Ride/1969 album, and lots of rare singles too – more than enough music to please any fan of the group, and blow the minds of anyone who's just getting a first taste. Titles include "Roller Coaster Ride", "On Being Black", "New World Generation", "Theme To Say Brother", "Dreams", "Clouds", "All You Need To Make Music", "Rocket Ship", "Cooking", "The Old Prospector", and "Junkman's Song". Great package too – with two LP-styled CD sleeves inside a larger case, plus a big booklet of notes and photos! CD

Suicide may be one of the coolest groups of all time – at least as one to emerge from the New York scene at the end of the 70s – where even amidst the giants of the time, they had a sound that was unlike anything else! The duo of Alan Vega and Martin Rev mixed broken electronics with plenty of fuzz and these really spooky vocals – all at a level that was completely punk, but unlike anything punk at all – almost as if they were working some deconstructivist magic on all the prog electronic experiments of the early 70s, ripping them down to their core, and making something really dark and spooky in the process! And although the pair are best known for their groundbreaking debut album, they kept making great tracks over the years – a number of which are included here in newly remastered versions that sparkle even more than before – a collection of cuts that really offers a great picture of the group, along with laudatory notes from Henry Rollins. A big highlight of the set is an early version of "Frankie Teardrop" with different lyrics – and other titles include "Mr Ray", "Surrender", "Ghost Rider", "Touch Me", "Dream Baby Dream", "Diamonds Fur Coat Champagne", "Dominic Christ", "Radiation", "Dachau Disney Disco", "Wrong Decisions", "Why Be Blue", "Rocket USA", and "Harlem".

The set's a very spacey take on dub modes of the 70s – often augmented by lots of weird electronics, and even given a very trippy production approach throughout – so that even some more familiar instruments echo out in space, and seem to transform themselves while they decay! The approach might sound a bit like the On-U Sound style of the time, but it's actually even more way-out and freewheeling – and titles include "Escape & Return", "Rocket Repairs", "Alien Circus", "The Creepy Crawl", "The Breathtaking Blast", and "Planet Play/Laser Games".

The 3CD package features a stunning 57 titles in all – and begins in the late 30s with hard-edged small combo work and jive-heavy vocal tracks – then runs past WWII to include some bebop, R&B, and very cool vocal numbers – before moving into Greenwich Village classic sounds in a mix of spoken word, jazz poetry, and even a bit of folk!

Drop the "pop" from the title, and focus on the "swamp" – as the sounds here are a heady brew of all that was going down in the backwaters of the Louisiana scene at the end of the 50s – strands of blues, hillbilly, R&B, and early rock modes – all served up with a style that's quite different than some of the more polished work coming from up north! Some of these cuts echo familiar New Orleans modes, but most are very unique numbers that really show the special sort of vibe that was happening in Louisiana at the time – a real musical crossroads whose influence had later impact on styles in Texas, Tennessee, and other points south! As usual with Ace Records, not only is the choice of music great, but the presentation is too – with loads of notes that really illuminate these 28 rare tunes – titles that include "If You Don't Want Me" by Warren Storm, "Never Let Her Go" by Gene Terry & His Downbeats, "I'll Be Coming Home To You" by Hal Young & The Electras, "Where Should I Go" by Gabe Dean, "The Snake" by Merton Thibodeaux, "Lucy Lou" by Vince Anthony & The Blue Notes, "It's Too Late" by Rocket Morgan, "Now Is The Time" by Charlotte Hunter, "Play A Song For My Baby" by Rod Bernard, "Searching For Love" by Charles Page & The Rockin Aces, and "I Got Loaded" by Ken Lindsey.

As tired as you might be of hearing about the towering genius of Saint Dylan (well earned as the kudos may be), it's pretty wonderful to hear what an adventurous ear he has for quality music regardless of genre, and the set is a heck of a lot of fun, too – how else to describe a compilation that features both late 40s kitsch from the Sherman Williams Orchestra – and fiery modern garage rock from The Dirtbombs? 50 songs on 2CDs: "Hello" by The Sherman Williams Orchestra, "Let's Have A Party" by Wanda Jackson, "Sam Stone" by Swamp Dogg, "Jump Into The Fire" by Nilsson, "Fist City" by Loretta Lynn, "One Hand Loose" by Charlie Feathers, "First I Look At The Purse" by The Contours, "Rhode Island Is Famous For You" by Blossom Dearie, "The Glory Of Love" by The Velvetone, "Young Man's Blues" by Mose Allison, "Rocket Nine Takes Off For Planet Venus" by Sun Ra, "Dim Lights, Thick Smoke (And Loud Loud Music)" by Joe Maphis & Rose Lee and much more.

And here, James knows that we love his classic sound from the CTI years – which he recreates here in a different setting, recording live in the studio with a wonderfully warm trio – plenty of strong focus on Bob's still-sublime work on keyboards and electric piano, balanced with round acoustic basslines and gently funky drums that give the whole thing a maturely soulful vibe! This isn't Bob James trying to go retro – but remembering his genius sense of space and timing in the 70s, and bringing it back in a very fresh way.

A great look at the legendary Ric & Ron Records label – a key force in the development of New Orleans soul – home to some of the best early productions from the Crescent City! The roster of talent here is really amazing – a host of artists who'd go onto develop the New Orleans style even more strongly in the 60s, mixed with some lesser-knowns who really sparkle in this setting – sharp, tight, damn soulful singles that are all delivered without any overproduction, and nicely free of all those cliches that would later overwhelm music from the Big Easy. The rhythms alone are worth the price of the record – hard-romping piano, bass, and drums that really set an instrumental fire right from the start – then pave the way for searing lead performances from the singers and instrumental stars. This special set features some never-issued titles – "Good Enough For Me" by Eddie Bo and "Tipitina (demo)" by Professor Longhair – plus "You Done Me Wrong" by Al Johnson, "Double Eye Whammy" by Tommy Ridgley, "I Won't Cry" by Johnny Adams, "Found My Good Thing (demo)" by Barbara Lynn, "Feelin Right Saturday Night" by The Velvetiers, "Dinky Doo" by Eddie Bo, "Will Travel" by Lee Tillman & Bud Stewart's Top Notchers, "Pleadin" by Mercy Baby, "Carnival Time" by Al Johnson, "I May Be Wrong" by Irma Thomas, "Walkin" by Robert Parker, "You Can If You Think You Can" by Martha Carter, "Tootles" by Lenny Capello & The Dots, "Lonesome Guitar" by Edgar Blanchard, "Don't Mess With My Man" by Irma Thomas, "Rocket To The Moon" by Chris Kenner, "Go To The Mardi Gras" by Professor Longhair, and "Every Dog Got His Day" by Eddie Bo.

✨✧ Wadada Leo Smith, Vijay Iyer, & Jack DeJohnetteLove Sonnet For Billie Holiday ... CD
Tum (Finland), 2021. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Pianist Vijay Iyer has left his own very strong mark on the world of jazz in the past decade or so – but here, he's in a completely different setting, and a surprisingly strong fit for the sort of spirit we're used to hearing from trumpeter Wadada Leo Smith! The set also features drummer Jack DeJohnette – and there's a sense of dynamic interaction and sympathetic creativity that graces the entire album from the start – that special spirit that Smith always seems to bring to a recording, which really opens up Iyer on piano, Hammond, and Fender Rhodes – while DeJohnette explores the farther reaches of his spectrum as well. Titles include "Song For World Forgiveness", "Rocket", "Deep Time 1", and "The AD Opera" – a long piece dedicated to Anthony Davis. CD

✨✧ Jackie Brenston & His Delta CatsBlues Got Me Again – Singles 1951 to 1962 ... CD
Jasmine (UK), 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Vocalist Jackie Brenston recorded one of the key early singles in rock and roll – the seminal crossover cut "Rocket 88" – which has, over the years, gotten Brenston's contribution overshadowed by the work of Ike Turner – who put the whole thing together in the studio! Yet despite that focus on Ike, Brenston's a hell of a singer – and a key hero of the pre-soul years, with an effortless ability to mix together bits of blues, jazz, and R&B – thanks in part to his work on baritone sax on many of these tracks! The package is a great way to finally give Jackie his due – and brings together sessions for a number of different labels – mostly from the early 50s, but with a few later cuts from the early soul years too – total of 27 titles that include "Trouble Up The Road", "I Want To See My Baby", "Tuckered Out", "Fat Meat Is Greasy", "Independent Woman", "Come Back Where You Belong", "Leo The Louse", "Starvation", "Lovin Time Blues", "Gonna Wait For My Chance", "Much Later", and the classic "Rocket 88".

Bacao Rhythm & Steel BandSerpent's Mouth ... LP
Big Crown, 2018. New Copy ... $18.99 24.98
Funky genius from a mighty unique group – one who've drunk deep on the classic steel band sounds of the 70s, but who've also refined that groove with a contemporary funk approach too! The group's the brainchild of Bjorn Wagner – who you might know from The Mighty Mocambos – and the sound here is every bit as well-crafted as that combo, but with the difference of steel drums in the mix! The drums provide most of the melodic elements, while the funky backings kick things up nicely – all at a level that's maybe even funkier than some of the best funky steel drum albums of the 70s – especially across the space of the entire album. Titles include "Xxplosive", "Touchdown", "Burn", "Real Hot", "Hoola Hoop", "1 Thing", "Crockett Theme", "Bocas Del Dragon", "Bushfire", and "I Love You". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousEccentric Soul – The Deep City Label ... CD
Numero, Mid 60s. New Copy ... $7.99 19.99
The birth of Miami soul, and a beautifully done document of the rare Deep City label – home to Willie Clarke, Clarence Reid, and Betty Wright in the years before Alston and TK Records! Way before Miami soul started cracking the charts at the start of the 70s, Deep City was already putting the best parts in place – working with a tight roster of artists and an equally tight in-house band that rose from the ranks of Florida A&M's Marching 100 band – razor-sharp instrumentalists who helped forge a groove worthy to rival the sounds of Memphis, Muscle Shoals, and even the best of Detroit at the time – given that some of the work here has a much sweeter soul sound than other 60s southern soul. As usual, the Numero team have done an incredible job with the package – pulling out rare photos, personal stories, and just the right amount of information to breathe new life into the Deep City label and help it live anew. CD features 17 tracks in all – including "Paralyzed" and "Good Lovin" by Betty Wright, "Am I A Good Man" by Them Two, "Someone To Fulfill My Needs" and "I Love You Baby" by The Moovers, "I Am Controlled By Your Love" and "Willing & Able" by Helene Smith, "Good Thing (part 1)" by Frank Williams & The Rocketeers, "It's My Baby" and "The Upset" by Paul Kelly, and "Stay Away From My Johnny" by Freda Gray & The Rocketeers.

VariousLet's Go Latin – Vocal Group Harmonies ... CD
Koko Mojo, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 12.99
A really great collection from a sometimes-overlooked stretch of vocal group music – a time in the 50s when a number of doo wop and early soul groups explored the use of Latin rhythms to change things up – an approach that makes for a mighty nice set of grooves to go along with the harmonies! Some of these tracks maybe just have a hint of Latin, but others have heavy percussion, and a nice mambo-inspired groove – and together, the 32 tracks on the set do a really wonderful job of illuminating this generation – with cuts that include "Joogie Boogie" by The Dubs, "Oh Carol" by Duo Dinamico, "Mambo Boogie" by The Harptones, "Send Me A Picture Baby" by The Starlarks, "E Basta Cosi" by Hank Ballard & The Midnighters, "Arriba" by Damal & Rasheed, "Juanita In Mexico" by Professor Hamilton & The Schoolboys, "Mexico" by The Rocketones, "Any Way You Wanta" by Harvey, "Do Be Do Be Wop" by The Squires, and "Down In Cuba" by The Royal Holidays.

✨✧ VariousMiami Sound – Rare Funk & Soul From Miami Florida 1967-1974 ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Late 60s/Mid 70s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A much-needed look at the funky Miami scene of the late 60s and early 70s – the new powerhouse of southern soul, after the slowdown in the scenes in Memphis and Muscle Shoals! The Miami sound was harder, tighter, rawer, and faster than that of other southern outlets – based around a really strong ability to pick up a little riff, cook it up nicely, and create the perfect backdrop for sock-soul vocals. By the mid 70s, Miami was topping the charts with disco tunes that sprung out of this energy – but the tracks on this set are all heavy-hitters from the pre-disco years – kickass funky tunes that burn like a box full of rare funky 45s! Titles include "You Got To Be A Man" and "The Spanish Flyer" by Frank Williams & The Rocketeers, "Do It To Me One More Time" and "Somebody Done Took My Baby & Gone" by Joey Gilmore, "Cadillac Annie" by Clarence Reid, "You Got To Be A Man" and "A Woman Will Do Wrong" by Helene Smith, "Funky Cat", "Save Me", and "Fantasy World" by James Knight & The Butlers, "Funky Me" by Timmy Thomas, "Funkadelic Sound" by Little Beaver, "Don't Make The Good Girls Go Bad" by Della Humphrey, "I Get Lifted" by George McCrae, and "Cramp Your Style" by All The People.

VariousPraise Poems 5 – A Journey Into Deep Soulful Jazz & Funk From The 1970s ... CD
Tramp (Germany), 1970s. New Copy ... $12.99 18.99
A record with a sound that's much richer than you'd expect from the cover – not the spare, stark image on the front – but a wonderfully deep array of sounds from the more spiritual side of the jazz spectrum! As with previous volumes, the collection of tunes here is amazing – tracks that are so underground, they've even been missed by collectors over the past few decades – gems that plumb the vinyl depths even beyond labels like Strata East, Black Jazz, or Muse – to show that there were some even more amazing musical moments taking place far out in the hinterland! Those three other labels would be a great comparison to the style here – especially the last two – as many of the cuts have an early 70s blend of electric jazz, funk, and maybe a bit of soul – sometimes vocal, sometimes instrumental – very deep all the way through. Titles include "Anita" by Scott Cunningham Band, "Move On" by Robert Cote with Orange Lake Drive, "Red Clay" by Gunn High School Jazz Reunion, "Chocolate Puddin" by Gate, "Down Here On The Ground" by Keither Florence, "Funky Resurgence" by Ulysses Crockett, "Al's Thing" by Al Walton Trio, "Walk With Me" by David Lee Jones Trio, "When She's Gone" by Anything Goes, "Empty Days" by Randy Larkin, and "Strange Things" by Tim James.

VariousSpring Fever – 28 Easter Nuggets For Your Spring Season ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Late 40s/1950s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $10.99 11.99
A whole host of tunes that will help you say goodbye to winter and hello to spring – a light and lively mix of postwar cuts in a variety of styles – from early rockers, to instrumentals, radio pop gems, and even a bit of R&B – all put together with a very playful vibe! The set's similar to the other "season" titles from Bear Family – showing how similar themes move through American music in different ways – almost like you're tuning into some old AM station in the month of May, discovering a whole host of tunes you might never have heard otherwise! Oddly, there's also a theme of chickens and eggs running through the set – which features 28 titles that include "Chicken Rock" by Fat Daddy Holmes, "Spring Fever" by Vilas Craig & The Kollege Kings, "One Fried Egg" by The Charioteers, "Rock Chicken Rock" by Ray Coleman & His Skyrockets, "Jungle Bunny" by The Fabulous Pearls, "The Rooster" by Ike Turner's Kings Of Rhythm, "Chicken Reel" by les Paul, "Easter Day" by The Dixon Brothers, "April Love" by Shirley Jones & Pat Boone, "Egghead" by Al Allen, "Spring Fever" by The Velvets, "End Of Spring" by Les Baxter, and "It Might As Well Be Spring" by Jerry Duane with the Monarchs.

VariousWild Sounds From An Overheated Jukebox – Lux & Ivy Dig Those 45s ... CD
Righteous (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99 20.99
Oh for the glory days of the 7" single – that magical late 50s/early 60s time when it seemed like there was an endless supply of weird and wonderful records all the time – and at prices that allowed them to circulate easily, even if they weren't big hits! (And why are 7" singles so expensive these days?) The package is a fantastic testament to that wonderful musical moment – when you might stumble across a backroom jukebox, stuffed with overlooked gems – just waiting for you to discover them, and get them blasting out of the bassy speaker with the drop of your dime. Few folks know this generation better than Lux and Ivy of The Cramps – a pair who were record collectors before they even made a single of their own – and the set features a stunning 50 rare nuggets – with titles that include "The Mash" by Bud Spudd & The Sprouts, "No Time" by The Titans, "Purr Kitty Purr" by Sid King & The Five Strings, "Time Machine" by The Gamblers, "Little Bitty Girl" by The Memories, "The Little Martian" by Jan Amber, "The Last Meal" by Hurricane Harry, "Hello Schoolteacher" by The 4 After 5s, "Peach Fuzz" by Bob Taylor, "Zindy Lou" by The Mariners, "My Memories Of You" by Yolanda & The Natural, "Wolf Call" by Mark Anthony, "Nameless" by Bob Strauss, "Heartbeat" by The Threeteens, "I Dreamed I Was Elvis" by Sonny Cole & The Rhythm Roamers, "Mental Cruelty" by Larry & Dixie Davis, and "Bodacious" by The US Rockets.

✨✧ FunkadelicMaggot Brain ... CD
Westbound (UK), 1971. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Amazing stuff – and arguably the greatest early Funkadelic album ever! The set moves past the simple fuzzy style of the group's debut, and the overly-stoned sound of Free Your Mind – and rockets into a heady funk style that's filled with sly social commentary and an incredibly dark vision of the future! The centerpiece of the album is the mindblowing "Maggot Brain" title track – a tune that begins with a chilling spoken intro, then slowly builds amidst washes and washes of post-Hendrix guitar. That cut then rolls into some shorter, funkier numbers that rank with some of the group's best ever – using the device of party-hearty energy to convey a sense of alienation and horror at the world. The whole thing's brilliant throughout – and apart from being a soul classic, the set should also rank as one of the greatest rock albums of all time! Titles include "Maggot Brain", "Super Stupid", "Back in Our Minds", "Can You Get to That", and "Wars of Armageddon". CD

✨✧ VariousEccentric Soul – Outskirts Of Deep City ... CD
Numero, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An essential chapter of Miami soul – even if most of the work is appearing here for the first time ever! The set is a magnificent companion to Numero's Deep City collection of pre-TK Miami soul – but it's put together in such a way that it's almost a beautiful introduction to the south Florida sound on its own – served up in a batch of rare, unreleased tracks! The music is every bit as wonderful as you'd expect – Miami soul recorded at a time before cliches had started to hit that scene – and when the best artists down south were strongly resonating ideas from Memphis and Muscle Shoals with other elements borrowed from northern groups both funky and mellow. But even above the 20 great tracks on the CD, the package is amazing too – filled with notes on each group, a special appendix on Miami soul, a rare indie label discography, and a wealth of great images and photos – all layered lovingly into a full-color, 32 page booklet! Numero have really outdone themselves with this one – and the collection is way more than a part 2 to their previous package – more of a brilliant set of soul tunes on its own, complete with a booklet that's as beautiful as the music. Titles include "One Little Piece" by The Rollers, "Don't Be Surprised" by Lynn Williams, "No Way Out" by Clarence Reid, "What's In The Lovin" by Helene Smith, "Mr Lucky" by Betty Wright, "There Goes My Baby" by James Knight & The Butlers, "Do What You're Doin" by The Rising Sun, "Do Your Stuff" by Perk Badger, "Masterpiece" by Deep City Band, "Nasty Dog (part 2)" by The Nasty Dog Catchers, "Thank You Baby" by Betty Wright, "Your Love Won't Let Me Leave You" by Snoopy Dean, "The Pot Can't Talk About The Kettle" by Helene Smith, "Show Me What You Got" by Frank Williams & The Rocketeers, "Don't Be A Fool" by Clarence Reid, and "Knockin At The Wrong Door" by The Rollers.

✨✧ Harold Mabern with Gregory Porter & Kurt EllingAfro Blue ... CD
Smoke Sessions, 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The great Harold Mabern kicks it hard with a key core group – then finds a way to open up with some surprise guest artists as well – including singers Gregory Porter, Kurt Elling, Jane Monheit, and Norah Jones! The core of the album features Mabern's piano rocketing out with rhythm from John Webber on bass and Joe Farnsworth on drums – and getting some strong tenor work from the mighty Eric Alexander – and as the set goes on, the group also brings in Jeremy Pelt on trumpet, Peter Bernstein on guitar, and Steve Turre on trombone. But the key force here is the singers – especially Porter and Elling, who seem to find an old school space with the group that really takes them back to their roots. Elling sings on "You Needed Me", "Portrait Of Jennie", and "Billie's Bounce"'; Porter sings on "Afro Blue" and "The Man From Hyde Park"; Monheit sings on "I'll Take Romance" and "My One & Only Love"; and Norah Jones sings on "Don't Misunderstand" and "Fools Rush In". CD also features Alexis Cole on "Such Is Life" – and the instrumental tracks "The Chief", "Mozzin", and "Bobby Benny Jymie Lee Bu". CD

✨✧ VariousLand of Sensations & Delights – Psych Pop Sounds Of White Whale Records (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Craft, Late 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A very groovy look at a very groovy record label – LA powerhouse White Whale Records, home to some mighty fine sounds in the second half of the 60s! As you'd guess from the title, there's a slight current of trippiness running through this material, but it's often blended with a really strong sense of production and a nice ear for a hook – maybe a bit like A&M Records, who might be a comparison to some of the work here – as White Whale always had a careful ear for the up-and-coming, and gave them great freedom to do their thing, and the right sort of production and presentation to make everything come out groovy! And although White Whale had some hits back in the day, this material is definitely from the farther reaches of the label's singles – as you can tell from the set list, which includes "Vegetables" by The Laughing Gravy, "You Got The Love" by Professor Morrison's Lollipop, "My Door Is Always Open" by Rainy Daze, "Love Story" by The Brothers, "Superman" by The Clique, "Look At You Now" by Bazooka, "Won't You Say You'll Stay" by The Rockets, "The Proud One" by Buster Brown, "Goin It Alone" by The Bears, "Song #7" by Lyme & Cybelle, "Darlin You Can Count On Me" by The Everpresent Fullness, "Little Girl Little Boy" by The Odyssey, "I'll Be In" by The Answer, and "We Must Find A Way" by The XLs.

Discomoda, 1970s/1980s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A collection of killer cuts from Ray Perez and Los Dementes – a rock-solid salsa group, but one who never got as much exposure up on our scene – maybe in part because of their Venezuelan origin! Yet that lack of exposure hardly dims the light in these tracks at all – as the CD is overflowing with cookers that never let up – the kind of well-crafted small combo rhythms that are completely on fire in terms of percussion, bass, and piano – often rocketing away at top speed while the horns and vocals jump into the fray. Ray's records have always been tough to get, which makes this 16 track set such a great introduction to his work – with titles that include "Mi Salsa Llego", "El Guaguanco Y La Salsa", "Escargando", "La Cenicienta", "Mi Mujer No Esta En El Guiro", "Vete De Mi Vida", "Los Dementes", "A Comer Llaman", "Catalina", and "Carnaval De Cueros".

Killer work from one of our favorite labels of all time – the mighty King Records, home to some of the best R&B material of the 50s, and some of the best cuts of the early soul years! Apart from the label's great fame and big hits, they also recorded countless other singles that barely got their due back in the day – which you'll hear here on a wonderful set of tracks that includes a fair bit of numbers that have never been reissued – a wealth of rare singles from King and related labels, all hand-picked by Mr Fine Wine, who's a funky 45 collecting legend! The music moves nicely between hard-edged R&B and early soul and funk numbers – and titles include "Not Much" by Rosemary, "Big Balls Of Fire" by Billy Soul, "You're Gonna Drive Me Crazy" by Dolph Prince, "I've Enjoyed Being Loved By You" by The Fabulous Denos, "Mr Hound Dog's In Town" by Roy Brown, "Lost In The Great Big City" by Sonny Thompson, "Jungle Dreams (part 2)" by Roy Estrada & The Rocketeers, "It Only Hurts A Little While" by Little Willie John, "Muskeeta" by Johnny Pate, "Rocks In Your Head" by Cora Woods, "The Boss" by Tonni Kalash, "Mama Wants To Drive" by The Zircons, and "It's Love Baby" by Hank Ballard & The Midnighters.
