VariousNuggets – Original Artyfacts FromThe First Psychedelic Era 1965 to 1968 (Sire pressing) ... LP
Sire, 1960s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99
One of those few classic cases where a compilation of tracks was maybe even more influential than the original music itself – as this early 70s collection of 60s material turned out to shape and influence generations for decades to come! Guitar genius Lenny Kaye put the set together famously for Elektra Records in 1972 – as a reminder that, just a few years before, there were some amazing sounds that were not only brewing up in local indie scenes around the country, but also on the radio as well – even though most of those groups had been pushed into relative obscurity by the rise of soft rock, hard rock, and classic rock of the early 70s! The package is a return to the pre-prog years, with an especially strong ear for garage-tuned tracks that would go on to shape later punk, 80s indie, and lots more underground sounds in the future. Titles include "I Had Too Much To Dream (Last Night)" by Electric Prunes, "Dirty Water" by the Standells, "Respect" by Vagrants, "No Time Like The Right Time" by Blues Project, "Invitation To Cry" by Magicians, "You're Gonna Miss Me" by Thirteenth Floor Elevators, "Psychotic Reaction" by Count Five, "Baby Please Don't Go" by Amboy Dukes, "My World Fell Down" by Sagittarius, "Open My Eyes" by Nazz, "It's A Happening" by The Magic Mushrooms, "Lies" by The Knickerbockers, "Oh Yeah" by Shadows Of Knight, "Sit Down I Think I Love You" by The Mojo Men, "Just Like Romeo & Juliet" by Michael & The Messengers, "Hey Joe" by The Leaves, and "Farmer John" by The Premiers. LP, Vinyl record album

Danny ElfmanDick Tracy – Original Score (transparent blue vinyl pressing) ... LP
Sire/Rhino, 1990. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99 23.99
After big success on the Batman soundtrack, Danny Elfman turns his talents to another comic character – Dick Tracy, as portrayed by Warren Beatty in the 1990 film that's not nearly as good as its music! While the movie was filled with over-the-top characterizations that completely went against the brilliance of the original strip, Elfman's score is a brooding masterpiece of understatement – rejecting all the cartoony elements of the film, and instead furthering Elfman's growing talent for orchestral scoring. Titles include "Slimy DA", "Meet The Blank", "Breathless Comes On", "Crime Spree", "Rooftops", "Blank Gets The Goods", "Showdown/Reunited", and "After The Kid". LP, Vinyl record album

Flamin GrooviesJumpin In The Night (180 gram green vinyl pressing) ... LP
Sire/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99 30.98
Killer work from The Flamin Groovies – a group who were already a bit out of time at their start, and who continue that approach here during the late 70s punk years – but at a way that maybe makes them stand out even more than before! The set's got a style that mixes rock roots with some rawer punk-styled production – a mode that really fits the Groovies, and seems to intensify their sound more than before – especially the lead guitar work of Cyril Jordan, who co-produced the set, and makes sure that he's right up front in the mix! The set includes a great version of the Warren Zevon tune "Werewolves Of London", a nice remake of Dylan's "Absolutely Sweet Marie", and the tracks "Jumpin' In The Night", "Next One Crying", "First Plane Home", "In The USA", "Down Down Down", "It Won't Be Wrong", "Ladyfriend", and "Tell Me Again".

Ice TIceberg – Freedom Of Speech – Just Watch What You Say (180 gram red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Sire/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1989. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99 30.99
Ice T's third album, and a set that still has all the nicely biting style of his early best! The approach here is great – as political as the cover implies, but with a nice sense of wit, too – that quality that already made Ice stand so far apart from others who were getting mired down in their hardass stance – but without also ever sounding too flip about the subject matter. The balance is what soon brought him to Hollywood, but it's always got a lot more edge on record – served up here with superb production and beats from Afrika Islam. Titles include "You Played Yourself", "The Girl Tried To Kill Me", "Freedom Of Speech", "What Ya Wanna Do", "Hit The Deck", "Peel Their Caps Back", "Shut Up Be Happy", "Lethal Weapon", and "The Hunted Child".

Nifty 2LP set that brings together a motherlode of the Impressions' best material from their ABC years – plus some of Jerry Butler's nice solo material for Mercury from the same time, and a few Curtis cuts from the early 70s. Too much to mention here, but titles include "Keep On Pushin", "Gypsy Woman", "Need To Belong To Someone", "Woman's Got Soul", "Amen", "You've Been Cheatin", "Mr. Dream Merchant", "We're A Winner", "Moody Woman", and "Only The Strong Survive".

The tunes include many numbers that Dan wrote, but which were made famous by other singers at the time – and although early demo versions with vocals by a young Penn would circulate over the years, these later takes are quite strong too – produced by Dan himself, on titles that include "Cry Like A Man", "Dark End Of The Street", "Do Right Woman", "You Left The Water Running", "I'm Your Puppet", and "Memphis Women & Chicken".

Sire, 1981. Very Good+ ... $14.99
A great sophomore set from The Pretenders – one that almost lives up to the dark intensity of their debut – and which certainly continues the group's initial legacy in all the right ways! The album's got a few sweeter moments, but also balances things out with more of Chrissie Hynde's balls-out brashness – and the rest of the group provide sharp musical support to keep all the right raw edges in place. Titles include "Bad Boys Get Spanked", "The Adultress", "Waste Not Want Not", "The English Roses", "Jealous Dogs", "Day After Day", "Talk Of The Town", "Message Of Love", "I Go To Sleep", and "Birds Of Paradise".

RamonesRocket To Russia (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Sire/Rhino, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99 22.99
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. Song by song, they somehow concentrate 30 years of the best, rawest, most exciting rock & roll of their forbears into two and a half minutes of beautiful primal energy that still manages to qualify as ear candy. As amazing as ever! Tracks include "Rockaway Beach", "Sheena Is A Punk Rocker", "Why Is It Always This Way", "Surfin Bird", "Do You Wanna Dance", and "Cretin Hop". LP, Vinyl record album

As such, the album's a crucial component to the group's catalog – especially if you weren't buying their singles back in the day – and is filled with as much greatness as all their other albums of the period. Titles include "Girl Afraid", "Panic", "Sheila Take A Bow", "Is It Really So Strange", "London", "Half A Person", "Sweet & Tender Hooligan", "Hand In Glove", "Rubber Ring", "Ask", "Golden Lights", "Oscillate Wildly", "You Just Haven't Earned It Yet Baby", and "Asleep".

✨✧ PretendersPretenders ... LP
Sire, 1980. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest mainstream rock and roll debuts of all time – and a record that still blows away just about any other later work by The Pretenders! The set's got this raw, sneering power that's neither punk, nor new wave – but which seems to be very much of that moment – a very unique blend of the group's Ohio roots and their London experience – honed to razor-sharp perfection, but never slick or polished at all. Chrissie Hynde is quite far from her ballad modes, and brings this raw, adult vibe to the record that really sets a whole new level for women in rock – never sweet, but never sexed-up either – standing as firmly in the group alongside her masculine cohorts as she does on the cover. Production is great – oddly dark in all the right ways, but with a very simple elegance – and the album's near-perfect from start to finish – with tracks that include "Precious", "The Phone Call", "Tattooed Love Boys", "Private Life", "Kid", "The Wait", and "Mystery Achievement".

✨✧ RamonesEnd Of The Century ... LP
Sire, 1980. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The Roger Corman-Phil Spector year of the mighty Ramones! End Of The Century is a huge departure from the 1-2-3-4 burst and roar of the first 4 Ramones albums – a big ol' Phil Spector production – recorded concurrently with the filming of late 70s hottie PJ Soles dancing around in her underwear with a shy and shell-shocked Joey in Rock And Roll High School! Lord knows that End Of The Century was the end of the Ramones as we knew and loved them on LP (they remained great live until the very end), but it holds up very well and the big sound brings a smile. Plus it's got "Chinese Rock", worth the price alone. Other tracks include "Do You Remember Rock'N'Roll Radio?", "I'm Affected", "Danny Says", "The Return Of Jack & Judy", "Let's Go", "Baby, I Love You", "I Can't Make It On Time", "This Ain't Havana", "Rock N Roll High School", "All The Way" and "High Risk Insurance".

There might've been a time when even the most ardent Replacements fans might not want to tell a soul how much they really dug this less raucous, more melodic record – if they even wanted to admit it to themselves – but that time has long ago passed, this one's pretty damn strong in hindsight! If the idea was to make a more radio playable record, this one certainly has songs that are accessible enough, but there's no burying the raw, disolutioned spirit at the core, and the it ultimately balances a big body with a weary soulfulness as impressive now as ever. Includes "Talent Show", "Achin' To Be", the irresistible single "I'll Be You", "I Won't", "Rock & Roll Ghost", "They're Blind", "We'll Inherit The Earth", "Asking Me Lies", "Anywhere's Better Than Here" and more.

✨✧ Talking HeadsFear Of Music ... LP
Sire, 1979. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really tremendous album from The Talking Heads – and a set that moves far past their already-great early records, to really show a rhythmic complexity we never would have expected! Brian Eno is helping the group in the studio again here, and the record really shows both David Byrne and Eno's late 70s fascination with global rhythms – elements that are often used in spare, simple little ways to really help inflect the tunes with a playful imagination that goes way beyond the colder post-punk and new wave of most of their contemporaries! The balance of previous aesthetics with these new grooves is wonderful – heard to great effect on the classic club cut "I Zimbra" – but brewing up strongly underneath on gems that include "Mind", "Paper", "Cities", "Life During Wartime", "Memories Can't Wait", "Air", "Heaven", "Animals", "Electric Guitar", and "Drugs".

✨✧ Talking HeadsMore Songs About Buildings & Food ... LP
Sire, 1978. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Early genius from the Talking Heads – a set that's got a much sparer sound than most of their later work, and a surprisingly groovy feel overall! The starkness of the group's debut is still very much in place – lots of tight interplay between bass and guitar – but the rhythms are also strongly pronounced too, and often get a bit funky at times – in ways that almost outdo most of the artier punk and funk that was to come in the next few years of the New York scene! Brian Eno produced the album with the group, and his sonic sensibilities really add a lot to the record – in ways that are much more subtle than his own 70s albums, but still a very big part of the set. Titles include "Thank You For Sending Me An Angel", "With Our Love", "The Good Thing", "Warning Sign", "The Girls Want To Be With The Girls", "Found A Job", "Artists Only", "I'm Not In Love", "Take Me To The River", "Stay Hungry", and "The Big Country".

Sire/Jackpot, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A masterpiece of American punk rock – and arguably the greatest moment ever for the legendary Stiv Bators! The album's got an intensity that blows away most of the UK groups who were making waves in the punk scene at the time – a raw energy that's a closer link to the Stooges and MC5 than anything over on the other side of the pond. Produced by Genya Ravan, and featuring the tracks "Sonic Reducer", "All This & More", "What Love Is", "Caught With The Meat In Your Mouth", "I Need Lunch", and "High Tension Wire".

✨✧ Talking HeadsSpeaking In Tongues ... LP
Sire, 1983. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
David Byrne brings his love of funk and soul to the forefront – tightening things up a bit from before, but still staying strongly in a classic Talking Heads groove! The record's possibly the last of the group's initial classic run, and has a surprisingly soulful feel at times – a hybrid of early 80s funk and club modes, played by guests who include Wally Badarou on synth, Bernie Worrell on keyboards, and Steve Scales and David Van Tieghem on percussion. Nona Hendryx sings a bit of backing vocals too – and Byrne really steps up to the grooves without ever going too far over the top. Titles include "Burning Down The House", "Making Flippy Floppy", "Girlfriend Is Better", "Slippery People", "I Get Wild/Wild Gravity", "Swamp", "Moon Rocks", "Pull Up The Roots", and "This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody)". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ DeviantsDeviants 3 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Sire/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic underground set from the UK scene at the end of the 60s – the final record by The Deviants, who'd later go on to form the core of Pink Fairies – but who sound a lot weirder and wilder here! Part of that difference is lead singer Mick Farren, who also handled the production – which really does a lot with a little, and makes any of the group's guitar-heavy, blues-inspired licks sound stranger in the company of some of the odd effects and unusual vocal styles too. Make no mistake, there's plenty of fantastic guitar on the record – thanks to Paul Rudolph, who's completely searing at most moments – but Farren balances things out nicely with his touches too, on strange-titled songs that include "The Junior Narco Rangers", "Black George Does It With His Tongue", "Death Of A Dream Machine", "Metamorphosis Exploration", "Billy The Monster", and "Rumbling Black Transit Blues".

Sire, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The birth of punk rock as a bonafide genre, and not only that, a record that changed the rules – stripping rock and roll back down raw essentials – and unwittingly appearing as one of the greatest rock albums ever made. Given the stripped, buzzing simplicity, it's impossible to describe this record without sounding like a blow hard, but you really can't overstate what these four goony guys from Queens accomplished. 30-odd years of the most visceral pop music concentrated into 2 minute, 3 chord blasts of beautiful sonic catharsis – and they could barely even play! It's astonishing. Thanks boys! Tracks include "Blitzkrieg Bop", "I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend", "Beat On The Brat", "Now I Wanna Sniff Some Glue", "I Don't Wanna Around With You", "Loudmouth", and "Today Your Love Tomorrow The World".

A triumphant third album from The Smiths – one that really focuses the energy of their previous sets, and helps them find a new sort of sonic perfection! Those haunting guitars are still in all the right places – as are Morrissey's heartfelt lyrics – but there's also a nice balance here between humor and honesty, which may well make the album the most appealing Smiths set to our ears! Titles include "The Queen Is Dead", "Never Had No One Ever", "Vicar In A Tutu", "Cemetery Gates", "Frankly Mr Shankly", and "Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others". Deluxe 3CD edition is overflowing with goodies – and includes a new master of the original album! Also features additional recordings from the time – including "The Queen Is Dead (full version)", "There Is A Light That Never Goes Out (take 1)", and demos of lots of other tracks from the album – plus rare b-side cuts "Rubber Ring", "Money Changes Everything", "Asleep", and "Unloveable".

Blue Note, 2020. Used ... $9.99
A fantastic album from trumpeter Ambrose Akinmusire – a set that really kicks his career up to the next level, and which is easily the most powerful record he's ever given us! The music finds Ambrose in many moods, all of them righteous – sometimes blowing hard and fierce in a small combo, sometimes issuing out more personal statements in a more stripped-down setting – working with players that include Harish Raghavan on bass, Justin Brown on drums, and Sam Harris on piano – plus vocalist Genevieve Artadi on one especially beautiful number that features Akinmusire on Fender Rhodes! We've loved the music of Ambrose for many years – and this is one of those faith-rewarding sets that always makes it so wonderful to follow the career of any key jazz musician – as we hope you'll also find on titles that include "Roy", "4623", "Moon", "Tide Of Hyacinth", "Cynical Sideliners", and "Mr Roscoe".

Ivo Perelman/Gordon Drdina/Hamin HopariPurity Of Desire ... CD
Not Two (Poland), 2021. New Copy ... $14.99 16.99
The tenor of Ivo Perelman often sounds best in a more unusual setting – and that's definitely the case here, as he works in a trio with Gordon Grdina on oud and Hamin Honarai on tombak, daf, and percussion! The set definitely has some of the Mid East currents you'd expect from the instruments – but this is less of a "jazz meets world" setting, than it is a record that has Honari and Grdina improvising in free jazz modes on instruments with much different roots! If anything, the angular notes of Perelman might well be some of the most conventional sounds on the record – and if you know Ivo, you know that he's hardly anything but conventional. Titles include "Bridge To The Soul", "Purity Of Desire", "Music Of A Distant Drum", "Love Is A Stranger", and "Light Upon Light". CD

Tom ScottDesire/Target ... CD
Columbia/BGO (UK), 1982/1983. New Copy ... $9.99 16.99
Sweet sax from the great Tom Scott – two early 80s Columbia albums in a single package! Desire is proof that Scott could still make an electric jazz album sound more soulful than most of his mainstream contemporaries! There's a really great sense of balance here – production that's certainly polished, but instrumentation that's never sleepy at all – those always-sharp reeds we love from Tom, especially on alto and soprano sax – plus some great keyboard work from Victor Feldman, who has a similar sense of space and timing ot match Scott's groove! The set's got a feel that's a bit like some of the few really great albums from Dave Grusin – and some cuts have vocals, although mostly of the backup type. Titles include "Desire", "Sure Enough", "The Only One", "Stride", "Chunk O Funk", and "Meet Somebody". Target features a wide range of styles from saxophonist Tom Scott – some tracks that are in the funkier fusion he scored with in the 70s, but others that have some soul and pop touches as well! Scott's horn is still nice and sharp when he gets to step out in the solo spotlight – more so on the instrumental tracks, but a bit less so on the vocal ones – which feature singers who include Maria Muldaur, Kenny James, and Lee Ving. Other players include Harvey Mason on drums, Ernie Watts on tenor and alto, Victor Feldman on keyboards, and Paul Jackson on guitar – and titles include "Burundi Bump", "The Biggest Part Of Me", "He's Too Young", "Aerobia", "Target", and "Come Back To Me".

Ralph, 1981. Very Good+ ... $39.99
The first album from Tuxedomoon's European exile era! The sound of Desire follows heavily on the group's excellent Half-Mute set, but also picks up a bit more of a sense of song – trading some of the starker electronic moments for guitar and vocal passages that feature the edgey singing of Winston Tong. Things are quite spare overall, and surprisingly sentimental at times – more personal and less self-indulgent than work by most of the group's contemporaries, or than their own later records in Europe. Titles include "Victims Of The Dance", "Desire", "Again", "In The Name Of Talent", "Incubus", and "Holiday For Plywood". LP, Vinyl record album

A lovely title, and a lovely little record too – every bit as poetic as its promise – with haunting trumpet lines by Ambrose Akimusire, nestled nicely in an acoustic quintet that also features Gerald Clayton on piano and Walter Smith III on tenor! There's an understated quality to the record that's really nice – none of the too-modern modes you might guess from the cover image (we'll admit that sometimes we're suspicious of contemporary Blue Note mixing it up too much) – and instead a style that's mighty fresh, yet still pretty earthy – modern, yet never too outside – and a sense of soul that informs proceedings and really helps keep things on track. Titles include "Jaya", "Henya", "Far But Few Between", "Confessions To My Unborn Daughter", "The Walls Of Lechuguilla", and "My Name Is Oscar". CD

The album tightens things up slightly from the sound of Country Life before – not as many dark corners, but still plenty of the offbeat styles that make these early Roxy Music albums so great – with none of the softer styles that took over during the early 80s years.

A beautiful tribute to the Cali soul sound of the 70s – served up here by Robb Scott with a wonderfully groovy sound! The music here recalls that great moment when things could be tight, but never slick or commercial – maybe the productions of Larry Mizell, or the flowing soulful fusion of Patrice Rushen – and Robb handles much of the music himself on a variety of instruments, and also sings vocals – but in the best collaborative Cali spirit, he also opens the door to work with help from The Waters, Sandra St Victor, Juliet Roberts, Gina Foster, and Elisabeth Troy – all artists who lend a great sense of vocal spirit to the album. The set's nice and long – with a great mix of interludes and full songs – and titles include "Neptune Atmosphere", "Rotary Love", "Keep On", "Essaouira Wind", "Siren", "Negative Pleasures", "Hummingbird", "California Suite Revue", and "Venus In Virgo".

Not the kind of record you'd bring to a yoga class, as you might think from the title – but instead a really joyous celebration of soulful club music – pulled together with a host of disco classics from the late 70s and early 80s! These aren't the big hits of the time, but instead some lesser-known gems that got bigger play in the hipper clubs and the underground – far from the limelight of Studio 54 and the radio charts, where real clubgoers and dancefloor fanatics kept the disco groove going well into the 80s! None of these tracks is super-rare, but they work together beautifully to showcase the hipper side of female club – in a lineup that includes work by a number of talents who never fully got their due. Titles include "Love Rescue" by Project, "Slippery People (club version)" by Staple Singers, "Give Me Your Love" by Sylvia Striplin, "Loveline (extended)" by Shawn Jackson, "Sweet Dynamite (Tom Moulton 12" mix)" by Cladja Barry, "Can't Fake The Feeling (dub)" by Geraldine Hunt, "I Love Your Beat (inst)" by Rena, "Get On Up & Do It Again" by Suzy Q, "Breaking & Entering (12" mix)" by Dee Dee Sharp Gamble, "On Your Knees" by Grace Jones, and "Too Damn Hot" by Duncan Sisters.

Blue Note, 2018. Used ... Out Of Stock
Maybe the first album by Ambrose Akinmusire to carry a parental advisory warning on the front – and for good reason, too – as there's a powerful message here that really goes beyond the style of his previous albums! The set's clearly a product of the Trump moment – with rhymes by Kool AD, and songs that are more righteous than we ever would have expected from Akinmusire a few years before – built around his own trumpet and occasional words, the keyboards and piano of Sam Harris, and fantastic use of strings from the Mivos Quartet – whose contributions shade in the jazz moments with a power that's similar to the use of strings on some of the early Spike Lee soundtracks. The titles alone will give you an idea of the album's approach – "A Blooming Bloodfruit In A Hoodie", "Free White & 21", "The Lingering Velocity Of The Dead's Ambitions", "Miracle & Streetfight", and "Americana/The Garden Waits For You To Watch Her Wilderness".

No rift in decorum here – as the record may well be one of the tightest, most focused efforts we've ever heard from trumpeter Ambrose Akinmusire – a beautifully-played live set from a really wonderful quartet! Ambrose shapes his notes perfectly throughout – over these building, blocky piano parts from Sam Harris – whose sense of color both balances and amplifies the presence of the leader. The pairing is so great, we might almost miss the work of Harish Raghavan on bass and Justin Brown on drums – except for moments when they burst out in waves of richness that are very inspirational. The song style and length shifts throughout, but never breaks the cohesiveness of the set – and titles include "Brooklyn", "Moment In Between The Rest", "Umteyo", "Maurice & Michael", "Taymoor's World", "Condor", "Withered", and "HAMS".

Contemporary deep soul from Barry Jean Fontenot – a singer who should be destined to be huge, given the power and presence he has on this six track release! Barry knows how to soar like a classic soul singer, but also never hangs his music on cliches – as the sound here is very much his own, right down to backing by The Fountains, who have a nicely different vibe than more retro-sounding combos – especially when they throw in a few key tenor solos that really deepen the mood! The guitar is also nice and bright, in a way that's different from other recordings of this nature – bringing out new colors in Barry's vocals, on titles that include "By The Edge Of The Sea", "Second Line", "Desiree", "Come On Down", "The Flow", and "It Ain't So Easy".

Arista/Expansion (UK), 1982. New Copy ... $16.99 17.99
A jazz funk masterpiece, and THE record by the legendary Don Blackman – the only one issued under his own name for many many years, and a famous little set that's been sampled endlessly over the years, and for good reason! The vibe here is one that's barely been matched again – a blend of 70s fusion, bassy funk, and even tighter riffing – all put together with a greater depth and sense of soul than most other records of its type. Blackman's a GRP contemporary of Bernard Wright, Tom Browne, and Weldon Irvine – and there's bits of all their sound in the work here, but somehow Don does it even better – hitting these grooves, notes, and lines that seem to fall from the heavens – and which still stand as some of the hippest music of his generation. A record to file proudly next to your copies of Ramp and James Mason – and like those gems, the kind of record that only happens once in an artists career! Titles include "You Ain't Hip", "Yabba Dabba Do", "Heart's Desire", "Deaf Hook Up Connection", "Never Miss A Thing", and "Holding You Loving You", and "Since You Been Away So Long". CD

One of the most striking Egyptian jazz recordings of the 70s – and maybe one of the most avant, too – an unusual recording done at the German Culture Institute in Cairo, and an early collaboration between Hartmut Geerken and Salah Ragab! Ragab plays drums and percussion – but the approach is very different than his more rhythmic Cairo Jazz Band dates – as the group here really live up to the "free jazz" in their name – and come across more like the Sun Ra Arkestra during their greatest moments of free improvisation! Other players include Farouk Abdel Rahman on alto and percussion, Abdel Hakim Zael on baritone sax, Moohi El-Din Osman on bass, and Mahmoud Ayoub on tenor – and Geerken himself plays a wide range of percussive instruments and other items – including a "toy car producing the sound of a siren".

The set features 20 tracks in all – lifted from one full LP and a shorter 10" set – and all cuts feature small group backing, with players like Howard Roberts, Don Fagerquist, Max Bennett, Red Mitchell, and Charlie Mariano, whose icy alto really adds a new dimension to the set. The CD's worth it alone for Carr's classic reading of "Down In The Depths Of The 90th Floor" – but also includes many other great tracks, like "Lonely Street", "Do I Worry", "Not Mine", "I Don't Want To Cry Anymore", and "Memory Of The Rain".

DJ Muggs The Black GoatDies Occidendum (brown galaxy vinyl pressing) ... LP
Sacred Bones, 2021. New Copy ... $18.99
Cypress Hill and Soul Assassins sound architect DJ Muggs going into darker, eerier territory here, without sacrificing even a shred of his legendary hip hop production pedigree! Dies Occidendum laces some the moodiest and most atmospheric beats of his career – which is really saying something – with dialog samples that range from grindhouse cinema to more mysteriously sourced bits. The beats range from big and booming to sparer and stuttering, making this one varied in sound in some subtle ways while carrying a consistent mood. Includes "Incantation", "The Chosen One", "Nigrum Mortum", "Liber Null", "Alphabet Of Desire", "Subconcious" and "Veni Vidi Amadi". LP, Vinyl record album
("Brown galaxy" colored vinyl pressing.)
