✨✧ SlaveStone Jam ... LP
Cotillion, 1980. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
We couldn't think of a better way to describe the sound of Slave than "stone jam"! The band's got a bass-heavy groove, mixed with a lot of soul, in a style that was often copied by many groups in the 80s, but never equalled. The real strength in the band was their songwriting – always fresh, and never too overindulgent in the funky elements. The vocals are tight and soulful, and the restriction of the of the funky bits makes from some nicely compressed grooves. Steve Arrington's on lead vocals – and tracks include "Watching You", "Never Get Away", "Stone Jam", "Feel My Love", and "Let's Spend Some Time". LP, Vinyl record album

Island, 1985. Near Mint- ... $13.99
Pretty nice later work from Grace! Although we prefer the percolating disco meets reggae records Grace Jones cut with Sly & Robbie to this later effort – but there's no denying that on a couple of numbers she really clicks with producer Trevor Horn's slick sheen. With "Ladies & Gentlemen: Miss Grace Jones", "Jones The Rhythm", "The Fashion Show", "The Frog & The Princess" and "Slave To The Rhythm". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Mighty SparrowSlave ... CD
National/Modern Harmonic, 1963. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great 60s record from Mighty Sparrow – and the kind of set that shows just how different calypso music could sound when you got away from Harry Belafonte and the hits! The music here is every bit as political and socially conscious as earlier recordings of the genre – but you can also hear some of the cool 60s changes taking place on the Caribbean scene – including great use of horns to inflect most of the tunes with a great sort of edge – in the way Jamaican jazz and mento styles were shifting gears into rocksteady and ska! Sparrow's vocals have plenty of bite – and titles include "The Slave", "Calypso Twist", "Corbeau Sheltering Rain", "Popularity Contest", "Stupid Married Man", "Kennedy & Kruschev", and "Old Man & The Donkey".

✨✧ Descendants Of Mike & PhoebeSpirit Speaks (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Strata East/Pure Pleasure (UK), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
One of the most unique albums on the Strata East label – and that's saying a heck of a lot, given the creative energies flowing through that legendary jazz outlet! Descendents Of Mike & Phoebe is a righteous little project put together by Spike Lee's father, Bill Lee, and his brothers and sisters (Cliff Lee, Grace Lee Mims, and Consuela Lee Moorhead) – working here in a group named after their slave ancestors, who are paid tribute in a beautifully flowing batch of tunes! Lee's round, warm bass tones are firmly at the head of the group on most numbers – recorded at a similar level to his excellent work with Clifford Jordan on Strata East during the same time – and other instrumentation includes piano from Consuela, flugelhorn from Cliff, and percussion from Sonny Brown and Billy Higgins – all used in a wonderfully evocative style that's even better than some of Lee's later soundtrack work. A few numbers feature vocals from Grace – singing wordlessly and with a really heavenly sort of quality – and together, the whole group have a undeniable sense of power and majesty, yet also one that's touched by a really personal sense of poetry too. Titles include a great version of Lee's "Coltrane", which was more famously recorded with Clifford Jordan – plus "Chick Chick", "Attica", "Too Little, Too Late", "Boll Weevil", "Don't Be A Stranger", and "Well Done, Weldon".

Germs(GI) ... LP
Slash, 1979. Very Good- ... $39.99
The one-and-only proper album from The Germs – one of the last great west coast punk records of the 70s! The sound is nice and raw, with recent Runaway and soon-to-be solo star Joan Jett handling the production – and she lets the Germs be the Germs, if ever so slightly less ragged than on the earlier singles. Darby's unique way of sneering and slurring the vocals at the same time are as killer as ever, as are Pat Smear's guitars. A classic! Includes "What We Do Is Secret", "Cummunist Eyes", "Richie Dagger's Crime", "Strange Notes", "Lexicon Devil", "Media Blitz", "The Other Newest One", "Let's Pretend", "Dragon Lady", "The Slave", and "Shut Down" (live).

❔
The first Bob Marley album on Island Records – and the start of a really legendary run that would not only transform reggae in the 70s, but the rest of popular music as well! Chris Blackwell's partially at the helm on production, but the album was mostly recorded in classic Kingston studios – Randy's, Dynamic, and Harry J's – and retains the same vibe as some of Marley's earlier work, but with more of the forward-thinking vision he brought to his time at Island. Bunny Livingston lays down some excellent percussion on the set – and rhythm is from the team of Aston and Carlton Barrett on bass and drums. Titles include the classic "Stir It Up" – plus "Slave Driver", "Kinky Reggae", "High Tide Or Low Tide", and "Concrete Jungle". LP, Vinyl record album

MC LyteEyes On This ... CD
First Priority/Traffic, 1989. New Copy ... $6.99 14.98
MC Lyte's second full length record – a bit overlooked in the grand scheme, if only because the preceding Lyte As A Rock was a tough act to follow – so now's a great time to catch up with it! To our ears, Eyes On This is every bit as nice as the debut, and it that last of Lyte's no nonsense late 80s east coast rap efforts – before she started inching more towards a commercial style in the early 90s. An underappreciated classic! Includes "Cappucino", "Stop, Look, Listen" featuring Audio Two, "Survival of the Fittest (rmx)", "I Am the Lyte", "Cha Cha Cha", "Not Wit' A Dealer" and another song dedicated to Shante, "Shut The Eff Up! (Hoe)". Also includes "Throwin Words At U", "Please Understand", "Rhyme Hangover", "Funky Song" and "Slave 2 The Rhythm". CD

The never-issued full length album from Philly funk combo Nat Turner Rebellion – a group led by Joseph Jefferson, who'd later write great songs for others – but who here is standing strong at the head of a very righteous group! Nat Turner Rebellion issued a few singles on the Philly Groove label, but never got the chance to give the world it's full length message – and this set was rescued from lost tapes at the Sigma Sound Studios by some students at Drexel University – a great lost legacy in sound, with a funky power and positive message that's maybe more important now than ever before! These guys often have the sock-soul punch of Sir Joe Quarterman & Free Soul – and titles include "Tribute To A Slave", "Love Peace & Understanding, "Fruit Of The Land", "Plastic People", "Getting Higher Together", and "Laugh To Keep From Crying".

✨✧ O'JaysShip Ahoy (expanded version – with bonus track) ... CD
Philadelphia International, 1973. New Copy ... $4.99 6.99
A pivotal album from The O'Jays – and an undeniable Philly classic! The record was the third the group cut for the Philadelphia International label – but it was really the first one that pushed their strong righteous soul agenda, sort of a mix of message-oriented lyrics and heavy soul (ala The Temptations), fused with the warmer more sophisticated styles of the Philly sound! The blend is perfect – and has a way of getting the message from the underground right into the living room – and a bit onto the charts as well! From the image on the cover – which features the group in a slave ship setting – to politics of tracks like "Don't Call Me Brother", "For The Love Of Money", "Put Your Hands Together", and "This Air That I Breathe", the record's an extremely unified effort – kind of to the O'Jays what What's Going On was to Marvin Gaye. Other titles include "You Got Your Hooks In Me", "Now That We Found Love", and "People Keep Tellin Me". Includes bonus track "Put Your Hands Together" – recorded live in London. CD

SkyySkyyline (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Salsoul/Octave (Japan), 1981. New Copy ... $13.99 About July 21, 2021
A stone classic from Skyy – one of those groups who virtually helped invent 80s groove! Like the best of the genre – such as Slave, BB&Q Band, and others – Skyy have a soulful approach that goes way past the simple cliches that other groups were so content to only muddle around it. The sound here goes very deep – based around the bass-heavy funk sound of the time, but setting up the instrumentation with lots of jazzy touches, and coming up with a strong ensemble approach that offers up plenty of freshness, even while the boogie groove goes on and on! Titles include "Call Me", "Get Into The Beat", "Jam The Box", "When You Touch Me", and "Gonna Get It On". CD features five bonus tracks – "Let's Celebrate (Shep Pettibone 12" mix)", "Let's Celebrate (Francois Kevorkian 12" mix)", "Call Me (Shep Pettibone 12" mix)", "Call Me (7" version)", and "Let's Celebrate (7" version)".

TribeHometown Detroit Sessions 1990 to 2014 ... LP
Strut (UK), 1990/1995/2014. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $18.99 29.99
A return to greatness for the legendary Tribe Records scene in Detroit – an underground movement that gave us some spiritual jazz classics in the 70s – then kept on making wonderful music at an even more underground level as the years went on! This set is a collection of work from three rare recordings issued during that time – all on CD only, and representing a maybe even more obscure side of this legacy than the Tribe albums of the 70s! First up is trombonist Phil Ranelin – heading up a group that includes Wendell Harrison on tenor and Marcus Belgrave on trumpet – two key Tribe partners from the early years – really stretching out on the titles "He The One We All Knew" and "Freddie's Groove", both recorded in 1990. Next is material from a 1995 performance led by pianist Harold McKinney – a set that's got an incredible depth of imagination and soul, almost as much as Harold McKinney's work of years back! The group is a wonderfully hip one – with former Tribe artists Wendell Harrison on tenor and clarinet and Marcus Belgrave on trumpet – plus additional players who include Kiane Zawadi on trombone, Reggie Workman on bass, Francisco Mora on percussion, and Jimmy Owens on trumpet. There's a bit of vocals, but never that much – and most tracks are long and open – freely exploratory, but never too far out or avant-styled – just soulful and spiritual, in the true Tribe Records tradition! Titles include "Wide & Blue", "The Slave Ship Enterprise", "Juba", "Libra Ahora", and "Conjure Man". Last is a set of tracks recorded in 2014 by keyboardist Pamela Wise – a record that really carries forward the Tribe Records spirit from the 70s! The overall approach is a bit more contemporary, but the set's still got all the best feel of a classic indie album from the underground – played and penned by Wise in close collaboration with reedman Wendell Harrison, a frequent partner of Pamela's on a variety of projects, and one of the driving forces of Tribe back in the day! Wise plays both acoustic and electric keyboards, and sometimes sings just slightly – although most of the album is instrumental – and in addition to Harrison's work on tenor and bass clarinet, the album features trumpet, guitar, and lots of percussion. Titles include "Ode To Black Mothers", "Hometown", and "Marcus Garvey". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousDestination Crampsville – The Finest In Demented Rock & Roll, Rabid Rockabilly, & JD Pop ... CD
Righteous (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99 20.99
We're always happy to take a trip to Crampsville – as the journey means that we not only get to live within the world of Lux Interior and Poison Ivy, we also get to discover a huge amount of obscure singles from the glory days of the indie 45! The Cramps built their music on building blocks like these – weird, obscure tunes from the late 50s and early 60s – often leaping across genres in a single tune – mixing rock and R&B, slinky lounge with gritty sleaze, and always exploding with the kind of energy that never could have lasted past the few minutes of music that fit on a 7" record. The set's very much in the great mode of other Righteous Cramps-inspired titles – and features 52 tracks that include "Love Slave" by Bart Mattson, "She'll Never Let Him Go" by Gin Gillette, "Little Joe" by Jack Day, "I'm Blue" by The Ikettes, "Chicken Rock" by Scott Wood & His Band, "Big Foot" by Googie Rene, "The Tingle" by Jackie Weaver, "She's Mine" by Johnny Strickland, "I Got School" by Scott Miller, "Stop At The Hop" by Don Eee, "Rock & Roll Fever" by Gene Ray, "The Gorilla Walk" by Sascha Burland, "The Cat" by Rod Willis, "Watch Your Step" by Bobby Parker, and "I'm Buggin Out Little Baby" by Donny Lee Moore.

A heady helping of trashy tunes from the glory day of the b-movie and pulp paperback – songs about love and sex from the postwar years of American culture – served up with a vibe that's very much in keeping with the title and the cover! Some of the tunes are instrumental, and mix a slinky, sexy rocking groove with the vocal numbers – and as with the previous volume in this series, and all the Destination titles from Bear Family – the presentation is as superb as the track list of rare gems we'd never hear any other way! 33 tracks in all – and titles include "Too Hot To Handle" by Jayne Mansfield, "The Strip" by The Upsetters, "I Get A Feeling" by Debby Moore, "Shanty Tramp" by Betty Dicksen, "Chicksville USA" by Jimmy Gtray, "Hey Tiger" by Felix & His Fabulous Cats, "Man Eater" by Big Jay McNeely, "Big Long Slidin Thing" by Dinah Washington, "The Dig" by Ken Kash Kwintet, "Man It's A Jungle" by Ruth Wallis, and "Slave Chain" by The Spinners.

Big Beat (UK), 1967. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
A sweet sampling of late 60s psyche from the American underground – a collection of work by different groups who represent some of the most obscure artists on the Mainstream label at the time – fleshed out here with a slew of bonus tracks that more than doubles the running time of the original album! The work here is all generally pretty hard rocking – heavy on guitars, with lots of fuzz – sometimes in support of sweeter-styled lyrics and a dreamier, more melodic feel, other times set to darker and more hallucinatory themes. The 12 original album tracks include "Hungry Women" and "No Me Tomorrow" by Euphoria, "Wind Dream" and "Baby Dear" by The Wildflower, "My Dear & Kind Sir" and "I Think I'm Down" by The Harbinger Complex, and "Walking Down The Road" and "Streetcar" by The Other Side. There's a stunning 13 bonus tracks (!!!) – mono single versions of Wild Flower, Otherside, Euphoria and Harbinger Complex tracks and mid 60s cuts by alternate Mainstream & Brent combos The New Dawn, The Word, The Ban, Thee Unusuals and The Ariel! Includes "Slave Of Desire" by New Dawn, "Now It's Over" and "So Little Time" by The Word, "Place Of Sin" by The Word, "I Could Go On" by Thee Unusuals and more. Includes a 24-page booklet with group histories and other notes. Killer! CD

Steve Arrington's got a long long legacy in soul music – one that goes back to his late 70s work on Slave – but he also sounds completely contemporary here, working in collaboration with a whole host of producers who were no doubt influenced by his creations of the past, and help Arrington find a whole new vibe in his music! Tunes are often spare, and served up in a blend of vocals, beats, keyboards, and guitar – yet all elements are given some cool, crispy twists and turns through a host of hip hop elements and other contemporary modes – but all at a level that only seems to bring new live to Arrington's music, and not overwhelm it.

There's a power, righteousness, and urgency to this album that we haven't heard from Ackamoor in years – very much the kind of material that's both a message and a medicine for the planet – of the sort that first inspired Ackamoor's generation in the 70s – and which is rarely carried off in a contemporary context this well! Idris plays tenor, but also delivers some surprisingly wonderful vocals and a few very powerful spoken parts too – and the rest of the lineup features Margaux Simmons on flute, Bobby Cobb on guitar, Ruben Ramos Medina on bass, Jack Yglesies on percussion, Sandra Poindexter on viola and violin, and Giole Pagliaccia on drums.

The group purportedly has roots in Texas, but incarnations of it were gigging around LA a bit earlier as Afro Latin Blues Quintet +1 and a bit later as Afro Latin Soultet. Here they play with boundless inspiration from around the globe. Afro Latin percussion and rhythms hold it all together, but they bring in strains of Latin soul, African rhythms, straighter jazz and madly percussive instrumental rock. Producer/composer/arranger/raconteur Jack Millman plays drums in the group as Johnny Kitchen, and other players include Joey Dubreau on vibes, Frank Morris on guitar and harmonica, Eddie Paris on drums, Dean Elliot on percussion, William Quinn on flute & sax, and Bill Collins on keys. Includes "Afrodesia", "Mozamba", "Soul Rockin'", "Afro Revolt", "Torrid Zone", "Oom Gowa", "Slave Traders", "Drumbouie", "Aphro Bugaloo", "Chocolate Drop", "Le Berber" and "Sand, Sun And Sea". CD

Baystate (Japan), 1974. Used ... Out Of Stock
Soaringly spiritual work from drummer Roy Brooks – a set that we'd rank right up there with his Free Slave album for its sense of pride, power, and majesty! Like that one, this set is far from the jazz of Brooks' roots – and really shows the Detroit player taking off with some supreme post-Coltrane energy. The group here is Roy's Artistic Truth combo – which features Marcus Belgrave on trumpet, Sonny Fortune on alto, Sonny Red on tenor (is that right?), Mickey Tucker on piano, and Reggie Workman on bass – all top-shelf players who really bring their best to the set! Things really change up nicely throughout the album – beginning with the 17 minute long "Last Prophet", a real Impulse Records-type spiritual workout – then rolling into shorter takes of "So What" and "Moody's Mood For Love" with Eddie Jefferson on vocals. Side two features the wonderful "Blues For The Carpenter's Saw" – a duet between tenor and musical saw, with a sound that's almost as enigmatic as some of Yusef Lateef's most exotic work of the 50s – and the album ends with a really jamming take on "Epistrophy" that has Brooks really exploding on drums. Great stuff throughout – and a rare non-US side from this legend! CD

McKinley had a really unique voice that shared some of the warmth of northern singers – including a few of the uptown crowd of the late 60s – but he also worked in a mode that was much bluesier, with more of the traces of the burgeoning Jackson scene, of which these recordings were a part during the 70s. The set features the full tracks from McKinley's one album for the label, plus singles – with a total of 16 tracks that include "When It Rains It Pours", "Open House At My House", "The Town I Live In", "The End Of The Rainbow", "Same Old Dream", "Slave For Your Love", and "Follow The Wind".

The book is a painstakingly researched collection – and this soundtrack is just as carefully put together – with a great range of styles – heavily steeped in freaky funk, upbeat boogie, acid folk, offbeat psych, and trippy jazz!

The vibe here is like the vintage Black Fire Records label at its best – and titles include "Salvation", "Theme For Cecil", "When Will I See You Again", "Shaman", "Tango Of Love", "Dogon Mysteries", and "The Last Slave Ship".

✨✧ ChainoAfricana & Beyond! (Africana/Percussion For Playboys/bonus tracks) ... CD
Dionysus/Bacchus Archives, Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great collection of work from the legendary Chaino – music from two albums, plus bonus tracks too! First up is work from Africana – one of the greatest albums by this enigmatic percussionist – a west coast player who made some killer records during the exotica years of the late 50s and early 60s – most of them a lot more hardcore than some of the work by bigger artists on the scene! Africana is fantastic – a mix of hard percussion and spare drum-driven tunes – often with tribal qualities in both the percussion, and the way that vocals are used – usually more grunts or calls than anything else! There's a bit of guitar at times, some slight piano too – but this is hardly the territory of Martin Denny or Les Baxter – as you'll hear on the cuts "Slave Girl", "Poko Cha Cha", "Walking Bongos", "Swamp Girl", and "Breathing Bongos". The work on Percussion For Playboys is very cool – Chaino percussion, but mixed with some hip LA jazz elements – including excellent work on both tenor and flute, which brings out some really jazzy currents in the music – on titles that include "Watusi Ceremonial Dance", "Jungle Mood", "Johannesburg Blues", "Jungle Love Chant", and "Bad & Beautiful". CD continues with 12 more bonus tracks from a variety of other Chaino recordings over the same period – titles that include "Ubangi Rock", "Gone Ape", "Bongo Stick Boogie", "Jungle Chase", "Torture Of The Mau Mau", "Soo Mak", "Toomba Leero", and "Bongos & Whistling".

✨✧ Gregory Isaacs/Ossie All StarsMr Isaacs (2CD deluxe edition – Leggo Dub plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Earthquake/17 North Parade, 1977. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Fantastic early material from Gregory Isaacs – captured here early in his career, and working in a deep roots reggae mode – recording at Channel One with great direction from Ossie Hibbert! The set's laidback and righteous, in ways that let all the soulful qualities of Isaac's vocals still come through – but in a very different way than on his later hits! The rhythms are provided by the Revolutionaries – a perfect choice for the record – and titles include "Slave Master", "Story Book Children", "Get Ready", "Set The Captives Free", "Hand Cuff", "Storm", "Sacrifice", and "Smile". This great 2CD set features bonus material on CD1 – "The Sun Shines For Me", "Mr Know It All", "African Woman", "Thief A Man", "Love Light Burning", "My Conversation", and "Mr Brown". CD2 features the full album Leggo Dub – related dub material by the Ossie All-Stars – The Revolutionaries working with Ossie Hibbert on some wicked instrumentals that have plenty of core rhythms that never stray too far, while Hibbert makes magic with echo and other slight studio techniques! Titles include "Dubby Dubby", "Winners Dub", "Dub Down Babylon", "Ghetto Dub", "Brooklyn Style, "Leggo Dub", and "Doberman Skank". CD2 also features bonus tracks – "Jump & Pawn" by Clint Eastwood, "CB 200" by Dillinger, "War Of The Stars" by Ossie & The Revolutionaries, "Take A Dip" by Dillinger, and "Lik Her She Gone" by Big Joe.

✨✧ SweetbottomAngels Of The Deep (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Elektra/Wounded Bird, 1978. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A tight set of fusion from Sweetbottom – an American combo who definitely seem to draw a lot from the rock-inspired Euro fusion sound of a few years before! There's also a bit of the PM Records vibe – from the Steve Grossman/Gene Perla camp – lots of sharp, fast changes in the rhythms – and some heavy guitars at points, linking the group to Brand X a bit – and also some vocals on a few cuts, sure to please the rockish audiences who might be straying over to the fusion realm of the spectrum. The set's pretty sweet overall – tight, but without sounding slick – and the drums really drive some of the best numbers. Titles include "Veena Deva", "Monique", "Electro Strut", "Amazon Ritual", "Her", and "Shrapnel In My Ankle". CD also features 5 bonus tracks – "Slave Trader", and original indie versions of "Veena Deva", "Amazon Ritual", "Angels Of The Deep", and "Shrapnel In My Ankle". CD

Gary McFarland/Grady Tate/Bobby ScottSlaves (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Skye/Muzak (Japan), 1969. New Copy Gatefold ... $9.99
An unusual little soundtrack to this obscure pre-Roots film about slavery – handled with some very nice touches from Gary McFarland, Bobby Scott, and Grady Tate! The music is penned by Scott, and is mostly in that hip blend of jazz and soul roots that he was using on some of his own 60s vocal work – but expanded a bit more here with the groovier styles of Skye Records, thanks to arrangements and conducting from Gary McFarland! The work's not as funky as you might expect, but is still plenty darn great – and there's a few instrumental numbers that are especially great here. Grady Tate sings on the vocal ones, often in the deep-voiced style of his own Skye albums – but with an approach that's a bit more down home and soul-based, which is a nice change – almost like Oscar Brown Jr at the best moments. A number of tracks are done in both instrumental and vocal versions – and titles include "Nightwind", "Slaves", "Black Lullabye", "Another Mornin", and "Pickin Cotton". CD

Burning SpearMarcus Garvey/Garvey's Ghost ... CD
Mango/Island (UK), 1975. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
An absolute classic! If you can own only one reggae LP, this one's in the front running – it's as if the words crucial and conscious were created to define the sound Winston Rodney, Burning Spear & the Black Disciples capture on this landmark roots LP. Though this is the Island version which many claim was cleaned up a bit too much to appeal to white audiences (and the same for the dub set, which is included here), but we still think it's pretty powerful. The Black Disciples band, with Horse Wallace, Robbie Shakespeare, Family Man Barrett, Chinna Smith and others, carve out mighty dread rthythms, and producer Jack Ruby keeps the proceedings tight and right, with just the right dub effects laid over top on the dub cuts. Featuring the tracks "Slavery Days", "Marcus Garvey", "The Invasion", "Red, Gold, & Green", "Resting Place", and "Live Good", plus this CD issue adds the dub companion LP, Garvey's Ghost, the dubs "The Ghost", "I & I Survive", "Black Wa-Da-Da", "Brain Food", "Dread River", "Reggaelation" and more, for a total of 20 tracks in all!

CBS/Bread & Wine, 1972. New Copy ... $12.99 13.99
A beautiful little record from the glory days of the acid folk scene in the UK – a set served up by Clive Palmer, who you might know from work in Incredible String Band and Wizz Jones – sounding even more enigmatic here at the helm of a trio who were produced by the legendary Ralph McTell! The style is light years from the more traditional sounds of some of Ralph's music – very moody and dark, with instrumentation that comes from guitar, recorder, and a variety of other instruments – including the unusual dulcitar, which was invented by trio member John Bidwell! Lead vocals are from Clive and Mick Bennett – alternating on different tracks, and harmonizing with a very eerie vibe, one that's further expanded by the unusual production modes too. A few tracks add in other elements, but just lightly – really keeping the solitary, spooky vibe of the record intact. Titles include "Evening Air", "Serpent's Kiss", "Wade In The Water", "Soft Touches Of Love", "Music Of The Ages", Spirit Of Love", and "Sweet Slavery". CD

Motohiko HinoToko Flash ... CD
Trio/Solid (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $13.99
Really unique work from a trio led by drummer Motohiko Hino, and which features Masahiko Satoh on piano and Nobuyoshi Ino on bass – all players who aren't content to just rest in the usual piano trio modes of the time, and who instead really break open the format with their creative work on the album! Satoh has a way of playing lyrically at the start, then really opening up – and Ino's bass rolls and dips with its own sense of melody that's quite beautiful – as Hino works far far away from straight rhythm, and often peppers the songs with personal exclamations of his own. Yet none of the numbers are ever too far out, either – just loosely structured, but respectful of the melodies, while never enslaved to them. Titles include "My Favorite Things", "Norwegian Wood", "Flash", "Overhang Blues", and "Once Upon A Summertime". CD

Ace (UK), 1940s/1950s/1960s. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99 22.99
A hugely sprawling 2CD collection of spanning the career of the incredible Lightnin Hopkins – from his most beloved years from the late 40s to late 50s – and a quite wonderful collection of numbers from the 60s after he had captured the hearts of the young, idealistic folk crowd of the era! Disc one focuses on the years 1947 to 1959 – wonderful, wonderful solo blues recordings that are justifiably revered to say the least. Titles include "Lightin's Boogie", "Coffee Blues", "Moanin Blues", "Highway Blues", "The Foot Race Is On", "Hopkin's Sky Hop", "Short-Haired Woman", the previously unissued "Ain't No Monkey Man" and many more. 26 tracks on disc one. Disc two covers the 60s, when Lightin was recording for Fire, Bluesville, Jewel and other labels. Nice picks from the later years, including some live numbers. Includes "Mojo Hand", "Ida Mae", "I Got Tired", "Sinner's Prayer", "Slavery Time", "Tom Moore Blues", "Up On Telegraph Avenue" and many more. CD

Amazing stuff from the Converted Mind of Bishop Manning and his family! Manning was a former down & dirty blues singer who was changed forever byThe Good Word in the early 60s – and the lived in realness of these recordings certainly suggests a blues pedigree. It's completely wonderful, with Manning and Family singers backed perfectly with organ, guitar and drums. 28 tracks in all: "Manning Family Theme Song", "Back In St Matthews Days", "I Am A Pilgrim", "Don't Let Satan Ride", "The Jealous Man And The Jealous Woman", "The Last Step", "Back In Slavery Days", "I Want To Shout At The Meeting", "Going Off Theme", "Sit Down Servent" and many more.

Louis Moholo's Viva La BlackFreedom Tour – Live In South Africa 1993 ... CD
Ogun (UK), 1993. New Copy ... $14.99
An incredibly spiritual session from percussionist Louis Moholo and his ensemble Viva La Black – recorded on the occasion of a series of concerts in Moholo's homeland of South Africa – and done in a way that's as much a document of the group's trip as it is a recording of the music in the concerts. Many of the tracks are shorter passages that flow together with longer ones – piecing together the warm spirit and soulful expression allowed to the group during the tour. And the music itself shares in a heritage that runs back through the 60s work of Mingus and Roland Kirk, the 70s experiments of the AACM, and the rich jazz-in-exile work of Moholo himself! Instrumentation includes percussion, trumpet, saxes, piano, and bass – plus vocals from all the members of the group – and titles include "Use Less Sugar & Stir Like Hell", "Volunteered Slavery", "Woza", "Nikosi", "End Of Man", "Dudu P", "I'll Look All Over Afrika For You", "Drum Choir", and "Joyful Noise".

Hermeto Pascoal E GrupoFesta Dos Deuses ... CD
Philips/Universal (Japan), 1992. New Copy ... $13.99 About July 21, 2021
A later album by Brazilian genius Hermeto Pascoal – but a set that crackles with all the fire and imagination of his classic recordings! The mood here takes us back to Slaves Mass or A Musica Livre – a mad mix of catchy rhythms, tight jazzy solos, and an insane approach to arrangement – that fast-moving genius that we've never heard from anyone this well, but which Hermeto has used to touch countless later generations of musicians! The grooves are wonderful – very freewheeling, but focused – and there's some soaring reed solos that really give the album a great sense of personality – as angular rhythms burst into the frenzy, and move the music to the heavens. There's a bit of vocalizing on the record – but always at a level that's on par with the instrumentation – and titles include "Tres Coisas", "Fazenda Nova", "O Galo Do Airan", "Pensamento Positivo", and "Chapeu De Baeta".

✨✧ Hermeto Pascoal & Grupo Vice VersaViajando Com O Som – The Lost 76 Vice Versa Studio Sessions ... CD
Far Out (UK), 1976. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A never-issued album by the great Hermeto Pascoal – recorded in the space between his 70s classics Slaves Mass and A Musica Livre – and every bit as amazing as those classics! The music here is fluid, open, and a fantastic mix of jazz and all of Hermeto's new ideas about musical structure – performed at a level that's highly organic, and with that completely individual vision that Pasocal brought to his sound from the start! This isn't typical Brazilian fusion of the time, but nor is it anything like the tighter sounds that Airto and Flora Purim were recording up in the US – instead, a musical mode that's completely in its own space, and which needs only one listen to convince you of the master's genius. The group here is overflowing with young talent – Lelo Nazario on keyboards, Nivaldo Ornelas and Mauro Senise on saxes and flute, Toninho Horta on guitar, Zeca Assumpcao on bass, and Ze Eduardo Nazario on drums – all important musical visionaries on their own, working together here to hit an even new level of creativity. Aleuda Chaves sings wordlessly on a bit of the record – and the whole thing has that blend of soaring sound and lyricism that marks Pascoal at his best. Titles include "Danca Do Paje", "Natal", "Casinha Pequinina", and "Mavumvavumpefoco". CD

✨✧ VariousTechnicolor Paradise – Rhum Rhapsodies & Other Delights (3CD set) ... CD
Numero, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 3CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An insane new chapter in the mighty legacy of the Numero Group – not the rare soul, obscure psych, or underground folk the label has covered with other releases – but instead a huge batch of under-discovered gems from the exotica scene of the postwar years – essentially the farther reaches of the bigger scene that had stars like Martin Denny and Les Baxter in the spotlight! In case you're not hip, the exotica groove is kind of a hipper take on the Pacific Islands sounds – not mainstream Hawaiian music, but instead usually small combo material that has lots of percussion mixed with electric instrumentation, either on guitar or keyboards – set to imagined themes of life in the south seas, often in a very cool mix of jazz and dreamy modes. The music here is every bit as well-researched and deeply-dug as that on other Numero compilations – and it's fascinating to hear just how many folks were influenced by the huge exotic movement of the late 50s – and were motivated to turn out their own takes on the music, sometimes with styles that rivaled that of the big records of the time – sometimes with very weird and offbeat modes that are even more striking! As always with Numero, the presentation is superb – a huge set of notes with an equally large amount of music – all served up in a mighty handsome package, with work by Bill & Jean Bradway, The Shelltones, The Voodoos, The Jaguars, Jerry & The Catalinas, The Gems, The Blazers, Chayns, The Palatons, Red Harrison & His Zodiacs, The Melody Mates, The Monzas, Carmen, Darla Hood, The Baton Of Andre Brummer, Joan Joyce Trio, The Castiles, The Potted Palm, Don Sargent & His Buddies, Clyde Derby, Chico Jose, Arnie Derksen & Chise, The Slaves, Bruce Norman Quintet, and many more.

High Note/Doctor Bird (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
A huge slice of work from Culture – material recorded by the trio over a few short years in the late 70s, but brought together as a strong representative of the second chapter of their career! Culture were an early group in the roots movement in the 70s, and they continued with a very righteous vibe after moving over to Sonia Pottinger's High Note label – maybe getting a bit more professional touch in the studio, but never in a way that dimmed their message at all – and which still set the indie recordings of the group nicely apart from the growing global mainstream market for reggae. This huge set not only features all the vocal singles cut by the group, but also the dubs and versions – with 20 tracks appearing on CD for the first time ever, and 5 more that are previously unreleased. Titles include "Cultural Rock", "Work On Natty", "Stop The Fighting", "Rockers Dub", "Trod On", "This Train", "Mind Who You Beg For Help", "Natty Never Get Weary", "Freedom Rock", "Children Of Zion", "Free Again", "Wipe Your Weeping Eyes", "Children Of Israel", and "Too Long In Slavery".

A gem of an album from Hermeto Pascoal – right up there with 70s classics like A Musica Libre and Slaves Mass – and done with a similar sort of energy that goes way beyond jazz, way beyond conventional Brazilian music – into territory that can only be described as Hermeto-like! The set's got a mix of tight fusion jamming, off-beat reed work, and some of Hermeto's heavenly compositions – and although there's a good groove to much of the material, that doesn't stop it from being as experimental as always – not in a dark threatening way, but more in a soaring joyous one! Titles include "Susto", "Alexandre, Marcelo e Pablo", "Santo Antonio", "Pimenteira", "Sao Jorge", and "Rede". LP, Vinyl record album
