✨✧ CzarfaceDouble Dose Of Danger (LP & comic book) (2019 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Silver Age, 2019. New Copy LP & Comic Book ... $24.99
High concept hip hop from team Czarface – 7L & Esoteric joined by Wu-Tang veteran Inspectah Deck – doing their own action-packed thing once again after full length collaborations like-minded adventuror MF Doom and fellow Wu legend Ghostface Killah. The core Czarface trio is something of a supergroup to being with, so we're happy to have them on their own despite how fun the aforementioned collabos are, and the comic book theme paired with action funk soundtracky atmosphere is still pretty incredible. Titles include "Beautiful Beast", "Enemies & Ivory", "Elephant Gun", "Poach The Poacher", "Clap Clap", "Masked In The Alley" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Silver Age, 2018. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
The Czarface team of Wu-Tang veteran Inspectah Deck and Boston underground hip hop heavyweights 7L & Esoteric are joined by the one-and-only MF Doom – a bonafide supergroup – and one of the finest comic book/sci-fi rap records since Madvillainy! Each one of these characters is so brilliant at their best, this record would've been a lot of fun even of they were just winging it – but it's actually pretty A-Game – with big, boisterous beats and clever samples and pretty deft rhymes throughout!

A thematic rap triumph from the hip hop superhero team of Czarface – already a veritable supergroup featuring Boston underground veterans 7L & Esoteric with the Wu Tang's Inspectah Deck – bringing in Wu MVP Ghostface Killah for the unsurprisingly massive Czarface Meets Ghostface! One of the standout facets of the Czarface project since the beginning is they way 7L, Esoteric and Inspectah Deck roll with the comic book hero theme without overdoing it in a way that pushes the thematic vibe into gimmickry – major props to 7L for laying down fuzzy funk beats and comic book action in a way that's action-packed larger than life, yet succinct and on target – and doesn't hurt bring in some of the best rappers in the game on each successive effort. Includes "Back At Ringside", "Face Off", "Iron Claw", "Czarcade '87", "Powers & Stuff", "Masked Superstars", "The King Heard Voices", "Listen To The Color", "Mongolian Beef" and "(Post Credits Scene)".

Dmitry SamarovMusic To My Eyes (hardcover) ... Book
Tortoise Books, 2019. New Copy ... $25.99 29.99
A beautiful little book from one of the more inspired creative talents on the Chicago scene – writer/artist Dmitry Samarov, who's always got a talent for getting to the heart of the city – and for being very open about what matters, and why! This book is Dmitry's love letter to the Chicago music scene – and maybe music in general – and the volume mixes both Samarov's drawings and words, as he makes his way through shows, clubs, bars, and other points in the Windy City – all while also stopping to take us further back in time, to sounds that inspired him at an earlier age – all with a voice that's very honest and down to earth, and a bit of a change from the usual rock criticism you might read. The hardcover book looks like a little sketchbook, but it's much bigger than that – over 250 pages, with drawings throughout – covering subjects as wide-ranging as Peter Brotzmann, Neko Case, Mavis Staples, Marc Maron, James Blood Ulmer, David Yow, Handsome Family, Low, The Gories, Silver Jews, Joe Jackson, Rob Mazurek, Eleventh Dream Day, Mekons, Evan Dando, Shellac, Mission Of Burma, and countless others – including some film and literary talents as well.

Billy Joe ShaverHonky Tonk Heroes (When I Get My Wings/Gypsy Boy/bonus tracks) ... CD
Capricorn/Bear Family (Germany), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $13.99 24.99
You've heard plenty about Billy Joe Shaver over the years, and this is the place to start – a set that brings together two of his albums for Capricorn Records, plus a single for MGM too! First up is When I Get Wings – a fantastic early album from Billy Joe Shaver – the kind of set that came out a bit under the wire, but turned on an elite few to one of the greatest songwriters in contemporary country music! The set's got maybe a bit more force than Billy's debut on Monument, but still also retains plenty of that broken-down quality that maybe didn't fit Shaver's age, but which definitely came through in the subjects of his songs – a similar voice to that of Kris Kristofferson on his early material, but definitely Billy Joe's own. Production is very strongly in the Capricorn Records mode, and titles include "Ride Me Down Easy", "Woman Is The Wonder Of The World", "Texas Uphere Tennessee", "The Good Lord Knows I've Tried", and "When I Get My wings". Gypsy Boy is a record with a title and cover that maybe look a bit off-key for the legend of Billy Joe Shaver – but the sound within is prime material from the 70s country genius, all given a tight spin in the Capricorn Records blend of rock and twang, roots, and polish! Billy Joe is maybe echoing some of the country music changes he helped to usher in with his songs a few years before – but the set is still great proof that the originator did them better than anyone else – as you'll hear on tunes that include "Chicken On The Ground", "Honky Tonk Heroes", "Billy B Damned", "We Stayed Too Long At The Fair", "Silver Wings Of Time", and "Slow Rollin Low". CD also features the obscure single tracks "Lately I've Been Leaning Towards The Blues", "I Couldn't Be Me Without You", and "Music City USA". CD

James SpauldingSongs Of Courage ... CD
Muse, 1991. New Copy ... $4.99
Great work from James Spaulding – one of the few players of his generation who actually got better with age! As he was in his classic 60s Blue Note recording sessions with other leaders, Spaulding is a hell of a group player – extremely sensitive to the other members of his groups – both able to maintain a strong voice, yet give ample room to that of the others in his company. This 1991 recording features Spaulding blowing in a group with Roland Alexander on tenor, Tyrone Jefferson on trombone, Kenny Barron on piano, Ray Drummond on bass, and Louis Hayes on drums – grooving in a modal mode that's kind of an extension of late 60s styles used by Horace Silver or Lee Morgan. Titles include "Cabu", "Uhuru Sasa", "Song Of Courage", and "King". CD

As classic an early album by Miles Davis as you can find – truly filled with the "all star" players billed in the title, and a session that has the sharpness of Davis' bop work for Blue Note, yet also lets him stretch out in a slightly more relaxed format! The album features Miles trumpet with 2 different groups – one a sextet with Horace Silver, JJ Johnson, and Lucky Thompson; the other a quintet with Silver and the obscure altoist Davey Schildkraut! Tracks are long, with lots of solo room – and titles include his classic takes on "Walkin", "Blue N Boogie", and "Solar" – plus versions of "You Don't Know What Love Is" and "Love Me Or Leave Me".

✨✧ Horace Silver QuintetDoin' The Thing (At The Village Gate) ... LP
Blue Note, 1961. Very Good ... $39.99
One of the few live recordings ever done by Horace Silver during his Blue Note years – a real surprise, considering what a crowd pleaser he was at the time! The set catches Horace working with that great quintet that graced most of his best early Blue Notes – with Blue Mitchell on trumpet, Junior Cook on tenor, Gene Taylor on bass, and the always-amazing Roy Brooks on drums. The groove is tight tight tight, and the live set crackles with the same sort of energy as the live sessions by the Jazz Messengers on Blue Note – rolling soul jazz, but with a bit of a lyrical touch to flesh things out. Because of the live setting, tracks are a bit longer than the usual Silver session – which makes for freer soloing, and a bit of a rougher edge that keeps things lively throughout. Titles include "The Gringo", "Filthy McNasty", and "Doin' The Thing". LP, Vinyl record album

A fantastic lost chapter in the career of genius soul/jazz/funk maestro Roy Ayers – a set that was only ever issued in the UK, and which is a great second part to his Lots Of Love album on the Uno Melodic label! This album features a few tracks from that gem, but in longer versions – mixed with other cuts that were never issued in the US at the time – all with that return to perfection that Roy found on Uno Melodic – which was his own label, and one of the few times in the 80s when he matched the brilliance of his 70s recordings on Polydor! Like those albums, the style here is tight and right in the pocket, but also full of meaning and message too – beautiful songs that are catchy, but far from commercial – funky, but never dance music in a conventional way. The set kicks off with a 7:20 minute version of "Chicago" – one of our favorite Roy Ayers songs ever, natch – and other cuts include "Smiling With Our Eyes", "Good Good Music", "Keep On Movin", "Silver Vibrations", "DC City", and "Lots Of Love".

A treasure trove of beautiful objects designed at mid-century – all creations of designer Peter Muller Munk – German by birth, and part of the wave of creative talent to come to America during wartime – which meant that we got to reap all the benefits of Peter's genius! Famous Muller Munk creations include the Waring blender or Bissell vacuum cleaner – but the book also shows early tableware, revolutionary kitchen design, transportation efforts, and even his famous Unisphere from the 1964 New York World's Fair! The book is heavy, oversize, and in full color – even more lovely inside than the cover – with 208 large pages that also include a lot about the designer's life and career. Book

✨✧ Tompall GlaserAnother Log On The Fire – Hilbilly Central 2 (Tompall Sings The Songs Of Shel Silverstein/Great Tompall & His Outlaw Band/bonus tracks) ... CD
MGM/Bear Family (Germany), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $13.99 24.99
Two seminal 70s albums from Tompall Glaser – both recorded during the time he was one of the real outlaws working on the Nashville scene! On Sings The Songs Of Shel Silverstein, Tompall takes a page from the book of Bobby Bare – singing songs penned by the always-witty Shel, who'd made a surprising move to country music with a hit for Johnny Cash, which was followed by a really great run of material that helped both transform the Nashville sound, and also give it a different sort of sense of humor. Unlike Bare and some of Shel's other 70s interpreters, Glaser has this naturally blue-tinged sort of vocal sound – which really brings a different spirit to the music – maybe echoing some of the more melancholy qualities of tunes that include "I Ain't Lookin For Answers Anymore", "Musical Chairs", "Grab A Hold", "Echoes", "Old New Orleans Custom", "If I'm There", and "Put Another Log On The Fire". The Great Tompall is a seminal set from Tompall Glaser – one that has him rising up from the Nashville underground, to hit the same sort of territory that was making Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings huge at the time! Like both of those singers, Glaser had spent years trying to make music work under other folks' directions – and had really broken off and found his own sort of path, with a spirit that really comes through here – on a record that definitely sounds unlike anyone else at the time. Tracks include new versions of some country classics, a few from the pen of Shel Silverstein, and a few more surprises along the way. Titles include "When It's Gone It's Gone Girl", "The Hunger", "West Canturbury Subdivision Blues", "I Can't Remember", "Time Changes Everything", and "If I'd Only Come & Gone". CD also features the bonus tracks from a single – "Loving You Again" and "T For Texas". CD

Hank MobleyJazz Message of Hank Mobley Volume 1 ... CD
Savoy (Japan), 1956. Used ... $14.99
The jazz message of Hank Mobley here is loud, proud, and plenty soulful – a key early illustration of his massive talents on the tenor sax, recorded in the relaxed company of top-shelf players of his generation! The format's a bit less structured than Mobley on Blue Note – more in a Prestige mode, although not as loose as a blowing session, given the length of the tunes. Two groups work with Hank on the set – one that includes John LaPorta on alto, Donald Byrd on trumpet, and Horace Silver on piano – another with Byrd on trumpet and Ronnie Ball on piano. La Porta's alto is an especially nice treat – quite an unusual modern pairing with Mobley – and rhythm is from either Doug Watkins or Wendell Marshall on bass, and Kenny Clarke on drums. Titles include "Cattin", "Madeline", "When I Fall In Love", "Budo", "I Married An Angel", and "The Jazz Message". CD

The band had a unique mix of rootsy soul jazz playing and more exotic approaches to arranging, playing in a way that manages to bring jazz funk mind, even at this early of a point – along with more meditative compositions with incredible lyrical beauty. The album includes tracks that mix both of these styles – and titles include the title track, "Baghdad Blues", "Melancholy Mood", "Sister Sadie", "Break City", "St. Vitus Dance", and the lovely "Peace".

Horace SilverSpotlight On Drums – Art Blakey – Sabu ... LP
Blue Note, 1953. Very Good+ ... $99.99
A seminal, yet unusual 50s Blue Note treasure! The album brings together a number of Horace Silver's great trio recordings from the early 50's, most of them with Art Blakey on drums, showing the fluid, rumbling genius that would later make him such a great leader. But the record also includes 2 tracks that don't even have Horace at all – and which feature duets between Art Blakey on drums and Sabu Martinez on conga, on the titles "Message From Kenya" and "Nothing But The Soul" – both tunes that have a highly percussive feel, and which were penned by Blakey. They're nice little percussion jams, and really take the material beyond typical 50s jazz and into beautiful beat-heavy territory – and they side nicely next to classic trio sides that include "Safari", "Ecaroh", and "Opus De Funk".

Blue Note/Jazz Heritage, 1954/1955. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock

The group's got the rougher, less-iconic feel of the Messengers at their start – similar to their early live dates – but all the right energy is firmly in place, and maybe given even more direction under Silver's leadership and great ear for a tune! The writing is superb, especially on classics like "Doodlin", "The Preacher", "Hippy", and the amazing "To Whom It May Concern" – one of our all-time favorite tunes in the 50s Blue Note catalog – and the solos are all top-shelf too. A real Blue Note classic! CD

The Silvery Boys have a groove that's as shimmering as their name – a unique blend of organ, guitar, bass, drums, trumpet, and trombone – the last of two which come as a nice surprise – as they glide through the other instrumentation, and bring a slightly different vibe to this garagey little set! The approach is almost like some of the work from the Texas scene around the same time – especially the way that the organ bubbles with the guitar – but there's also a distinctly Brazilian approach to the vocals and the way they come across – especially when the group sing together, in a mode that's a bit like their contemporaries The Golden Boys. (Hmmm . . . Was that the reason for the Silvery Boys name?) Most tunes are originals – and titles include "Voce E De Chorar", "Coracao De Papel", "O Paquera", "Depois De Voce Ninguem", "Nao Valo De Amor", and "Tagarela". CD

Blue Note/Time Life (Spain), 1958. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the most fantastic Horace Silver albums from the 50s – a set of complicated tunes that really lives up to its "further explorations" title! The session's a perfect example of the way that Silver was mixing hard bop sensibilities with more exotic styles of arranging in the late 50s – pushing past the straighter bop of his Jazz Messengers years, and moving into a territory that can only be described as "Silver-esque", and which went onto have a strong impact on many other players in years to come. And although not as well known as some of Silver's other classics from the time, the album's got some key tracks that show his talents at their best – like the genius "Moon Rays", or other originals that include "The Outlaw", "Melancholy Mood", "Pyramid", and "Safari". The group, which features Clifford Jordan on tenor and Art Farmer on trumpet, has an emotional maturity that you don't always get on Blue Note sessions from these days – and the album is a hauntingly lyrical batch of tracks that is among some of Silver's finest recorded work!

FeltPoem Of The River (CD/7 inch single box set – with poster, buttons, and gig flyers) ... CD
Creation/Cherry Red (UK), 1987. New Copy CD & 7 Inch ... $32.99
A gem of a record from Felt – one that has them complicating the sound they first brought to the Creation Records label – stretching out some of the songs a bit, and working with art rock legend Mayo Thompson of the Red Krayola in the production booth! The use of organ continues to be wonderfully strong – really giving the group a punctuation to their songs that their earlier material never had – but there's also still that great sense of overall sound that always made them so unique, and which works perfectly for the creative songwriting talents of Lawrence. Tracks include "Declaration" "Silver Plane", "She Lives By The Castle", "Stained Glass Windows In The Sky", "Riding On The Equator", "Dark Red Birds". CD comes in a gatefold sleeve, packaged in a 7" box – which includes a picture sleeve version of the "Ballad Of The Band" 7 inch single, 2 reproductions of gig flyers, a 2-sided wall poster, and 4 buttons – all with a sticker on the box that's signed by Lawrence!

Silver Cloud/P-Vine (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $24.99
A sweet mellow stepper from Lil Albert – a singer who first got things going in the Hawaiian group Society Of Seven – but who hits some completely different, completely great territory here! The set was recorded in mid 70s LA, with arrangement and production by Ernie Freeman – and Albert's got backing from some of the cream of that scene's studio musicians, who bring some great jazzy touches to the music! There's definitely an ear here towards an AOR approach, but the result is more like the best indie mellow soul of the period – well-produced, but never overdone – nicely understated, in a way that makes the lead vocals sound completely sublime. Titles include "My Girl Friday", "Movin In", "Daydreamin", "Outrageous", "River Of Steel", "Loose Woman", and "Roads". CD

Barry's got a way of really making his keys sing out nicely – playing both acoustic and electric piano with plenty of warm tones and gently flowing modes – but never in a way that's too far out from jazz, or too smooth to be sleepy. The set features twin guitars from Pat Martino and John Abercrombie, both of whom underscore the chromatic nature of Miles' playing – and other players include Lew Tabackin on tenor and flute, Victor Gaskin on bass, Terry Silverlight on drums, and Warren Smith on congas. Titles are mostly Miles originals – and include "Descent", "Tangent", "White Heat", and "Little Heart Of Pieces". LP, Vinyl record album

A pair of classic Lee Scratch Perry albums – back to back on a single CD! First up is the legendary Upsetter record – revolutionary at the time, still great today – and done with a spare sound that displays the roots of his unique approach! These early tracks don't have the murky smoked-out grooves of his later years, but they're filled with solid songwriting and really inventive production – the sort that laid the groundwork for the legend of the Black Ark years – and which make thing tight, focused, and not the sort of reverb-heavy mess that you might get with some of Perry's lesser imitators. Tracks are mostly easy skanking Upsetters numbers – with titles that include "Tidal Wave", "Heat Proof", "Night Doctor", "Man From MI5", "Dread Luck", and "Thunderball" by The Upsetters – plus "To Love Somebody" by Buster Brown, and "Kiddy O" by The Muskyteers (aka The Silvertones). The set also features the follow-up – Scratch The Upsetter Again – a similar vintage, with the titles "She Is Gone Again", "Mule Train", "Outer Space", "One Punch", "The Denis", "Bad Tooth", and "Soul Walk".

✨✧ Nino RotaFellini Soundtracks (Early Movies/La Strada/Notti Di Cabiria/La Dolce Vita/8 1/2) (5CD set) ... CD
DOL (Russia), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 5CD ... Out Of Stock
5CDs, and a set of great soundtracks to early films by director Federico Fellini – music that forever set the standard for a new generation of film composers! First up is La Strada – the brilliant mid 50s filled that starred a young Giulettia Masini as one of the saddest clowns ever to grace the silver screen – an amazing performance supported here by key early work from Nino Rota. Rota's score is a mix of circus-like themes and darker moments – all delivered with a dynamic energy that's really wonderful – almost leaping out of the speakers at some points, then sliding into shimmering, watery depths at others. Titles include "Il Pranzo Di Nozze", "Tema Della Strada", "Gelsomina", "Il Bambino Malato", "Zampano Abbandona Gelsomina", and "Addio Del Matto". Next is Le Notti Di Cabiria – aka Nights Of Cabiria – a film of similar vintage, with an equally wonderful score by Rota! The music's a bit more lush this time around – fuller orchestrations at times, but always with that ear for an isolated melody amidst the larger body – that sense of personality that makes Rota's soundtracks so great. Titles include "Picnic Al Divino Amore", "L'Illusionista", "Il Trasloco", "Aspettando Giorgio", and "Le Notti Di Cabiria". La Dolce Vita is one of the all-time classic Italian film scores – a groundbreaking soundtrack from Nino Rota, and one of the first Italian works of this nature to hit the record racks in the US! The music is a beautiful blend of whimsy and sadness – penned by Rota with a variety of light themes that dance together with a dreamy sort of quality – romantic one minute, dramatic the next – always handled with Nino's inventive sense of musical play! A delight throughout – with titles that include "La Doce Vita", "Cadillac", "Via Veneto", "Titoli Di Testa", and "Valzer". 8 1/2 is beautiful work by Nino Rota – filled with the kind of classic themes that distinguished his best work for Fellini. Carlo Savina conducted, and he does an excellent job with Rota's ideas – crafting them into short little packets of sound, woven tightly into little balls that pass back and forth as the mood of the film changes, in a similar mode to the scoring for La Dolce Vita. Titles include "Cadillac", "Cimitero", "Discesa Ai Fanghi", "La Passerella D'Addio", "Concertino Alle Terme", and "E Poi". Last up is a special soundtrack – featuring works from very early films by Fellini – including Il Bidone, I Vitelloni, Un Agenzia Matrimoniale, Lo Sceicco Bianco, and La Grande Seduzione. CD

Charleston GrottoRaw Sewage ... CD
Everland (Austria), Late 70s. New Copy ... $14.99
Obscure late 70s material from Charleston Grotto – a long-running LA band who prefigured punk attitude with their work in the 60s, and who still sound pretty darn unique here even when the rest of the world was beginning to catch up! The music isn't exactly punk rock, but it's got a similar sense of f-you defiance – lyrics that are hardly going to get any radio play, and an all-attitude presentation that helps propel the group through some of their more offbeat moments – including some more complicated rhythms that almost have these guys hitting the wit of the world of Frank Zappa. Titles include "Back Biting Leeches", "Old Gene", "Sex Drive", "Screaming Cadavers", "Silver Lake", and "Slash My Wrists". CD

Clarke Boland Big BandOff Limits ... LP
Rearward (Italy), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
Easily the hippest of the Clarke-Boland Big Band Records from the classic years – a set of hard grooving tracks that really pushes the envelope of their style! There's a few elements here that are different than usual – such as the presence of electric piano on a few tracks, which creates a very new sound for the group, the presence of some exotic jazz influences (perhaps borrowed from the MPS Jazz Meets The World series), and the use of some edgier compositions on the set, including work by late 60s European free-thinkers, like Eddie Louiss, Albert Mangelsdorff, and John Surman. The reed work is really incredible in this setting – and is handled by Sahib Shihab, Ronnie Scott, Billy Mitchell, and Derek Humble – all of whom seem to blow with inspiration from Surman – using tones that are far more out there than usual. Titles include "Exorcisme", "Sakara", "Our Kind Of Sabi", "Osaka Calling", "Wintersong", and "Astrorama". LP, Vinyl record album
(It's hard to tell from the image, but Rearward packaged it all in a really nice sleeve with a glossy silver metalic finish!)

✨✧ Don DrummondMemorial Album (180 gram orange vinyl pressing) ... LP
Trojan/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
A mighty tribute to the great Don Drummond – the trombonist whose tone and timing really helped the 60s Jamaican scene find its groove! Don played on countless vocal and instrumental sessions before he left this planet all too soon – and this smoking memorial album is a mighty testament to his powers – an all-instrumental package that's filled with strong solo moments by Drummond in a variety of settings, mostly in a rocksteady groove! There's great organ and tenor on a number of cuts (Jackie Mittoo and Tommy McCook?) – and titles include "Street Corner", "Latin Goes Ska", "Green Island", "Garden Of Love", "Feeling Fine", "Silver Dollar", "Let George Do It", "Knock Out Punch", and "Dr Decker".

Dusko GoykovichEuropean Jazz Sounds ... CD
Be! (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $16.99
Fantastic unreleased work from one of the greatest trumpeters on the European scene from the late 50s onward – and one of the few players who could match the depth and soul of American jazzmen on the instrument! Dusko Goykovich has given us so much great music over the years – in small groups as a leader, in unusual projects as a sideman, and even as a soloist in bigger bands – and here, we capture the trumpet giant at the earliest stage of his career – on some beautiful German radio studio recordings from the end of the 50s and start of the 60s – tight, soulful, boppish material with a slight modern edge – recorded on all tracks with Derek Humble on alto, Karl Drevo (Drewo) on tenor, Franciso Coppieters on piano, and Jonny Fischer on bass. Some tracks feature Kenny Clarke on drums, the rest feature Stuff Combe on the kit – and titles include "Mile Dave", "Omricon", "Perhaps", "Quicksilver", "Solar", "Les Copains", "Salud To Birdland", and "On Green Dolphin Street".

Steve KuhnWatch What Happens ... CD
MPS (Japan), 1968. Used ... $22.99
A bold brilliant statement from pianist Steve Kuhn – his next great record after the seminal Three Waves, and a record that pushes the envelope even further! From the title, you might think that Kuhn's playing some familiar 60s standards for MPS – but he's really working strongly in his own agenda here, stepping forward in strong new voice he was bringing to piano at the time, and even going a bit more outside than ever before. The trio includes Palle Danielsson on bass and Jon Christensen on drums – and although familiar, some of the titles have a sense of freedom that really transforms them. Titles include Burt Bacharach's great "Windows On The World", Michel Legrand's "Watch What Happens", Gary McFarland's "Once We Loved", Carla Bley's "Ad Infinitum", and Kuhn's own "Silver". CD

VariousJesus Rocked The Jukebox – Small Group Black Gospel 1951 to 1965 ... CD
Concord/Craft, 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $22.99 24.99
A fantastic collection of postwar gospel – one that really keeps the spirit of the "jukebox" in the title! The tunes here are all upbeat, and often share a lot with R&B material of the 50s – especially the vocal group numbers, which often echo more secular modes of early doo wop, but rise the lyrics towards more heavenly aims – while often imbuing the tunes with lots of earthy energy! All the tracks here are from the Vee Jay and Specialty Records labels – and in the case of Vee Jay especially, the well-chosen selection of tracks provides a long-overdue focus to tunes that have mostly been reissued for the spiritual market, and haven't gotten the kind of exposure in the soul scene that they've needed over the years! This collection really corrects that – handled by the excellent Craft division of Concord who've been giving us some great Stax reissues – and the package is overflowing with rare singles, a total of 40 tracks in all – accompanied by great notes in a really well-done package. Titles include "Let Jesus Lead You" by The Detroiters, "Let Me Ride" by The Staple Singers, "Ananais" by The Chosen Gospel Singers, "Wade In The Water" by Harmonizing Four, "This May Be The Last Time" by The Original Five Blind Boys, "Just Another Day" by Soul Stirrers, "I Am So Glad" by Patterson Singers, "I Dreamed Heaven Was Like This" by Highway QCs, "Move Upstairs" by The Gable-Airs, "Angels Watching Over Me" by The Detroiters, "The Lord's Prayer" by Swan Silvertones, "Sinner Run To Jesus (take 1)" by Soul Stirrers, and "People Don't Sing Like They Used To Sing" by Original Blind Boys.

VariousPop Genius Of Mickie Most ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $16.99 21.98
They're not lying with the title of this one – as producer Mickie Most was one of the true studio geniuses on the UK scene of the 60s – as you'll hear here in a fantastic collection of some of his best work – packaged with a beautiful 72 page booklet of notes that will tell you everything you'll need to know about the man himself! But even without the big booklet, the music here speaks volumes on its own – as Mickie's genius runs from some of the key groups of the Brit Invasion years, to that fantastic late 60s moment when the English scene was getting very cool and expressive – to key 70s points that include a bit of early glam, hard rock, and other styles too! You've probably heard a good number of these tracks over the years, but never realized they all had Mickie's hands on them – and they're packaged together here with some great surprises along the way – titles that include "Gin House" by Paul Williams & The Big Roll Band, "Little Games" by The Yardbirds, "Motor Bikin" by Chris Spedding, "House Of The Rising Sun" by The Animals, "Hi Ho Silver Lining" by Jeff Beck, "Journey" by Duncan Browne, "Brother Louie" by Hot Chocolate, "Sunshine Superman" by Donovan, "I Love Rock N Roll" by Arrows, "Living Next Door To Alice" by New World, "The Boat That I Row" by Lulu, "Walking" by CCS, "Dance With The Devil" by Cozy Powell, "No Milk Today" by Herman's Hermits, "Flight 2" by Angelo & Eighteen, "Some Girls" by Racey, "Bread & Butter" by Barry St John, "Days Of My Life" by The Seekers, and "48 Crash" by Suzi Quatro.

VariousWinds Of Time – The New Wave Of British Heavy Metal 1979 to 1985 (3CD set) ... CD
HNE (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3CD ... $24.99
British heavy metal at the start of the 80s – a time when the UK scene was rising fresh from the big jolt of the punk generation – and also maybe starting to shine as the greatest place for metal in the world! There's an intensity to these tracks that really blows away some of the groups from the previous years – particularly those who'd risen to commercial heights on major labels – as many of the acts here began in the indie scene, where there was almost a merging with punk in terms of stripped-down production and frenzied instrumentation – all of which renewed urgency in the music, or maybe gave it a quality that it never even had before! And if you think you're not a heavy metal fan, you may well think again after hearing the set – because the choice of cuts here is wonderful, even from artists who later sounded more commercial – and the whole thing's tied together with a great set of notes as well. 51 tracks in all – with work by Fist, Angel Witch, Demon Pact, Satan, Elixir, Colossus, Savage, Dark Star, Hellanbach, Lautrec, Race Against Time, Aragorn, Axis, Witchfynde, Warfare, Gaskin, Venom, Shiva, Tysondog, Avenger, Soldier, Stormtrooper, Silverwing, Warrior, Tokyo Blade, Black Rose, Vardis, Jaguar, Diamond Head, Samson, Saxon, Chevy, Atomkraft, Brooklyn, White Spirit, Rock Goddess, and others!

The dancefloor just got a whole lot funkier – thanks to an incredible selection of rare disco and club tracks from the best years of the genre! The set list here is really amazing – the kind of tunes that rarely turn up this easily, and never in such a cohesive package – and our hats are off to compiler Al Kent for putting together such a wonderfully tasty set! Most numbers here are from the mid to late 70s – and showcase a soulfully grooving approach to disco – one that's free from the cliches of the mainstream side of the genre, and which features plenty of real soul vocals alongside uptempo funky instrumentation that usually features a few odd twists and turns! Most numbers are edited by Al Kent, sometimes in very subtle ways, and include "cover ups" billed to other artists – and the package essentially brings together material from Kent's previous CD series of the same name – but with revised track order, wonderful packaging, and a bonus poster! Limited vinyl 1 features the tracks – "Love Is All Around" by Sizzle, "I've Been Searching" by Arts & Crafts, "Get Ready" by Allan Harris & Perpetual Motion, "Sweet Jazz Music" by Panache, "To Be With You" by Jimmy Sabater, "Funkathone" by The People's Workshop, "Just Friends" by Silver Platinum & Gold, and "Why In The World Do They Keep On" by Executive Suite.

Four albums' worth of vintage ska from the Jamaican scene – presented here with a heck of a lot of bonus tracks too! These tracks are the real deal – some of the earliest tracks to be circulated under the name of the new style – and the sorts of songs that just about everyone tried to copy right off the bat, and kept on trying to match for decades more!

The package features the full albums Birth Of Ska, Latin Goes Ska, The Skatalite, and Don Drummond's Greatest Hits – plus 19 more bonus tracks – with work by Duke Reid's All Stars, Don Drummond, Botty & Bonny, Rico Rodriguez, Justin Hinds & The Dominoes, Owen & Leon Silvera, Eric Morris, Roland Alphonso, Clive & Naomi, The Richards Brothers, Baby Brooks, and many others. 58 tracks in all!

A second heavy dose of sounds from the Panamanian scene of the 60s and 70s – a long-overdue companion to the previous volume of the series on Soundway, filled with rare gems that are finally getting their first exposure to the world outside the isthmus! The sounds here are completely fresh – somewhat Latin-styled in the rhythms, but often put together in ways that are quite different than any more familiar music of the time – touches of tropical styles, funky grooves, and other odd elements that really keep things interesting – shifting our ears way past any easy expectations, and making us love the Soundway label all over again for their massive work in digging up the rare stuff! The package contains rich notes on the music put together by the label – a look at this oft-ignored musical culture, complete with vintage photos and record images too, so that the whole thing's almost as much of a visual treat as it is an audio one. Titles include "Descarga Superior" by Los Superiores, "Jazzy" by Los Papacitos, "Borambon" by Camilio Azuquita, "La Escoba" by Alfredo Y Su Salsa Montanera, "Love Letters" by Lord Cobra Y Los Hnos Duncan, "Piculina" by Chilo Pitty, "Ain't No Sunshine" by The Soul Fantastics, "Dreams" by The Duncan Brothers, "Tamborito Swing" by Los Silvertones, and "Ese Muerto No Lo Cargo Yo" by The Exciters.

Outta Sight (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The picture on the cover hardly does the music justice – as the image of a British pier doesn't even begin to reflect the soul and funk tracks within – even though they all got big play at Cleethorpes back in the 70s! Most of the work here is from the start of the 70s – and reflects a time when the rabid British soul scene was moving from the Northern modes that dominated the 60s with Detroit and Philly-styled grooves, to some of the newer funk that was coming out in the 70s – with space for even a bit of harmony soul and early club music too! The mix of tracks here is great – more funk and early disco than some of the other Outta Sight compilations – and titles include "Your Autumn Of Tomorrow" by The Crow, "I'm Your Pimp" by Skull Snaps, "Tear Stained Face" by Don Varner, "Like Her (part 1)" by Gentlemen & Their Lady, "The Gig" by Raw Soul, "I've Got The Need" by Spookie & Sue, "Marching Out Of Your Life" by Betty Baker & The Jaxis, "This Man" by Wally Cox, "Rainmaker" by The Moods, "Game Players" by Dooley Silverspoon, "Afternoon Of The Rhino" by Mike Post Coalition, "My Heart Needs A Break" by Linda Jones, "Spring Rain (short)" by Silvetti, and "Elusive" by Babe Ruth.
