✨✧ VariousBreakfast Club – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack ... LP
A&M, 1985. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The soundtrack for one of the most popular John Hughes films of the 80s, and the soundtrack for a generation as well – a mix of songs that were partly pulled from other sources, but which went on to make the idea of a compilation soundtrack every bit as important as a full original film score! The set kicks off with the massive hit "Don't You Forget About Me" by Simple Minds – the virtual theme of the film – then moves through tunes that include "Fire In The Twilight" by Wang Chung, "Waiting" by Elizabeth Daily, "We Are Not Alone" by Karla DeVito, "Didn't I Tell You" by Joyce Kennedy, and "Heart Too Hot To Hold" by Jesse Johnson & Stephanie Spruill. And the set also features a few instrumentals – "I'm The Dude", "Dream Montage", "The Reggae", and "Love Theme". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ FunkadelicMaggot Brain ... LP
Westbound/4 Men With Beards, 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... 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". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Erykah BaduBaduizm ... CD
Universal, 1997. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A landmark debut from the mighty Erykah Badu – a record that really set the world on fire when it first appeared – and which continues to blow our minds all these many years later! There's a simple, straightforward grace to the album that comes through immediately – as Erykah tries to forge new ground for soul music, but does it by taking a few steps backwards – not into retro modes, but more in a way that focuses on the core vocal, songcraft, and right instrumentation that can make a special soul record such a standout. She does a great job of both avoiding easy commercial paths, or some of the temptations to embrace other then-contemporary genres – which has made the work of some of her colleagues seem a bit dated. The record defines a whole new style of expression – "Baduizm", if you will – one in which Erykah sings with a depth that stretches back through a century's worth of jazz, soul, and gospel influences – but works a groove in a stripped-down and forward-thinking mode that sets the pace for countless Neo Soul singers to come! Titles include "Certainly (Flipped It)", "Next Lifetime (radio)", "On & On", "Appletree", "No Love", "4 Leaf Clover", and "Sometimes (mix #9)". CD

✨✧ Isaac HayesHot Buttered Soul ... CD
Stax, 1969. Used ... Out Of Stock
Amazing stuff from Isaac Hayes! Although Ike had first appeared on LP with the album "Introducing", this was the first record to really expose his true soul genius – and it was also the first release on Ike's successful sub-label at Stax, Enterprise Records. The record shows that for all the years Ike was working away on other folks' songs for Stax, he was carefully cooking up his own style of soul that would forever change the way we think about the music. Back in 1969, the album must have blown more than a few minds for its incredibly baroque approach to soul music – taking common elements like strings, piano, and funky rhythms, and stretching them out into long waves of sound that cycle over and over, working a sly subtle magic along with Ike's super-sexy vocals, and his monologue-heavy approach to popular tunes. The album features incredible remakes of pop hits "Walk On By" and "By The Time I Get To Phoenix" – both of which run for over 10 minutes, and which completely transform the songs into something way more than simple radio fodder. Also features the psychedelic soul masterpiece "Hyperbolicsyllabicsesquedalymistic", which has this crazy funky piano, and a messed-up sound that would make even George Clinton weep! CD

Marvin GayeWhat's Going On (gatefold cover) ... LP
Tamla, 1971. Very Good Gatefold ... $49.99
One of the few cases in the history of pop music where the record is worth all the hype! Marvin blew everyone's mind when he unleashed this amazing suite of political soul tunes – not only just because he'd moved past the simple love songs of earlier years, but also because he was working with an amazingly complicated approach to soul music, one that would touch the work of others for years to come. David Van DePitte arranged and conducted the whole album – with soaring orchestrations mixed with smooth modern soul, in a style that reminds us a lot of the work of Charles Stepney at Cadet, who'd been doing this sort of thing for years but with less success. In the hands of Marvin Gaye, though, the material has an amazing quality – and all the disparate elements of the album are fused together in one powerful message by Marvin's incredible voice. One that we never tire of, and a record to be listened to all the way through every time. Titles include "What's Goin On", "Save The Children", "Flyin High (In The Friendly Sky)", "Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology)", and "Inner City Blues (Make Me Wanna Holler)". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has some edge and surface wear, with a small split on the top seam.)

Irene KralWhere Is Love? ... CD
Choice/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $13.99
Mid 70s magic from vocalist Irene Kral – one of a handful of albums that really had Kral setting herself apart from most other jazz vocal contemporaries! The approach here is very simple – just Irene's voice and piano backing from Alan Broadbent – but a hell of a lot goes on in the spare space, thanks to subtly expressive vocals from Kral – never too overdone, yet filled with a mature sophistication that's wonderful – almost conversational at points, yet always with a soft swing that reminds us that she's a jazz singer at heart. Titles include "Love Came On Stealthy Fingers", "I Like You You're Nice", "When I Look In Your Eyes", "A Time For Love/Small World", "Never Let Me Go", "Lucky To Be Me/Some Other Time", "Don't Look Back", and "Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most".

✨✧ Caetano VelosoCinema Transcendental (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Philips/Elemental (Spain), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
Caetano Veloso at the end of the 70s – still sounding wonderful, but in ways that are quite different from his earliest albums! The sound here is more restrained, and more mature – a beautiful example of the songwriting strength that Veloso evolved as his career moved on – tunes that have a simple, almost elegant brilliance – and which are carried off here by a small backing combo of keyboards, guitar, bass, and percussion. Caetano's vocals have an up-close feel that reminds us of the Qualquer Coisa album – but the overall sound of this set is almost more personal and intimate than that one too. Titles include "Trilhos Urbanos", "Oracao Ao Tempo", "Elegia", "Vampiro", "Aracaju", "Os Meninos Dancam", and "Beleza Pura". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ InnocenceInnocence ... LP
Kama Sutra, 1967. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The only album from The Innocence – a cool little group with a really playful pop feel – one that's definitely cut from the same cloth as other Kama Sutra groups from the Lovin Spoonful generation! The core sounds here are from the duo of Pete Anders and Vinnie Poncia – who often use relatively spare instrumentation, almost as if they're building the tunes up from scratch in the studio, demo-style – while still layering some great vocals over the top. Jimmy Wisner did a good deal of the arrangements here, but he still preserves the personal feel of the songs – a kind of simple, joyful pop that almost reminds us of Roger Nichols & The Small Circle Of Friends on A&M! Titles include "All I Ask", "Someone Got Caught In My Eye", "There's Got To Be A Word", "I Don't Wanna Be Around You", "It's Not Gonna Take Too Long", "Whence I Make Thee Mine", and "A Lifetime Lovin You". LP, Vinyl record album

Christian McBride TrioChristian McBride Trio Live At The Village Vanguard ... CD
Mack Avenue, 2015. Used ... Just Sold Out!
The sign on the door at Village Vanguard reads "sold out", but this sweet CD grants you special admission to a wonderful live date from the trio of Christian McBride – full of warmth and imagination, and some excellent work on piano from Christian Sands! The record's a nice back to basics setting for McBride – and reminds us that sometimes his best ideas are his simplest – carved out here with these beautiful basslines that have a quality that's blocky, but fluid too – shapes in sound that really set things up in a perfect way – with subtle drumming from Ulysses Owens, and these sparkling piano lines from Sands, which almost take us back to our favorite early work from Mulgrew Miller. Titles include "Car Wash", "Fried Pies", "Sand Dune", "The Lady In My Life", and "Good Morning Heartache". CD

✨✧ MomoA Estetica Do Rabisco ... CD
Dubas (Brazil), 2006. Used ... $4.99
A contemporary album, but one with some of the same folksy touches as post-psychedelic Brazilian work from the 70s! Vocalist Marcelo Frota has a sound that's really wonderful – slightly earthy, but also a bit compressed as well – layered in between the acoustic guitars and slight keyboard touches in the tunes – at a level that's certainly contemporary in production terms, but which also has plenty of classic overtones. There's a bit of a quality that reminds us of the 70s work of Alceu Valenca & Geraldo Azevedo – songs that are simple, but somehow transcendent. Titles include "Leao", "Comprimido", "Bomsuar", "Tempartada", and "Tao Feliz". (And please excuse any mis-spellings we might have made in the song titles – as they're all hand written on the cover!)

✨✧ Caetano VelosoCe ... CD
Nonesuch, 2006. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Another great chapter in the always-surprising later career of Caetano Veloso – and a record that's unlike anything else he's recorded before! The style here is a real change both from some of his more ambitious and more experimental works of late – and the album mostly features small combo backing, set up alongside Veloso's vocals in styles that are slightly punky, slightly arty – in a way that reminds us a fair bit of work from the hippest side of the New York scene in the early 80s. The structure of the songs is often simple, but extremely fresh – very inventive twists and turns of a few basic elements, all to match the poetry of Veloso's own lyrics. Moreno Veloso co-produced the set – and titles include "Outro", "Rocks", "Deusa Urbana", "Waly Salomao", "Musa Hibrida", "Odeio", "O Heroi", and "Um Sonho". CD
