Nicholas CarrasDate Bait (red vinyl pressing – with bonus DVD & zine) ... LP
Something Weird/Modern Harmonic, 1960. New Copy ... $23.99 24.99
A great little soundtrack from trash maestro Nicholas Carras – not one of the bigger names in mainstream cinema scoring at the start of the 60s – but in a way that really lets him take off and get creative with a record like this! The album's got a leadoff rock tune, some jazzier charts – ala Elmer Bernstein – and a mix of dramatic orchestrations with moodier, mellower passages – almost currents of exotica at times, all put together to create more than enough drama away from the images on the screen! Titles include "Teen Bleus", "Vegas Express", "Jazz Chase", "Fight", "7D", "Lover's Reunion", "High Spot", "Bluesy Mysterio", and "Gang Stalks Rick". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red vinyl pressing – with bonus DVD of the movie, and a zine too!)

Nicholas CarrasMr Peters' Pets (yellow vinyl pressing – with DVD) ... LP
Modern Harmonic/Something Weird, 1962. New Copy (reissue)... $20.99 24.99
A very cool soundtrack for a very weird movie – an early 60s nudie film, but one that's a fair bit tamer and sweeter than material from later in the decade! The focus here is on the music – which is surprisingly well-done, and mixes jazz with exotic currents – often with a lot more thoughtfulness than you might expect, at a level that puts some of the best tracks here right up there with the best early 60s Italian noir jazz classics. Nicholas Carras wrote and conducted – but there's a tenorist on the album that really makes the whole thing great, someone who can play with the depth of Plas Johnson at his best. Titles include the eleven-minute "A Happy Turtle" – plus "Jungle Duck", "Three Sporty Ladies", "Petey's Sweeties", "The Happy Animal", "Animal Ambrosia", and "My Little Shasta". LP, Vinyl record album
(On yellow vinyl – plus DVD of the feature film, and a bonus zine too!)

Mandarian GateIt's A Revolution Mother (green vinyl pressing – with bonus DVD) ... LP
Something Weird/Modern Harmonic, Late 60s. New Copy ... $23.99 24.99
Freaked out sounds from a movie that offers up a look at the struggles of youth at the end of the 60s – a movie that was recorded "on the scene where the action is – presenting 500,000 young Americans doing their own thing!" The sound of the whole thing is pretty darn great – with a newscaster-style announcer, rapping with a bit of hip inflections – while the music moves between straighter rock, groovy instrumentals, and sound effects that really capture the "on the scene" quality of the whole thing! There's other dialogue from subjects presented on screen – and the whole thing is somewhere between a standard biker soundtrack of the time, and more of a spoken word concept album. LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes bonus DVD of the original film!)

✨✧ Space CatsSomething New ... LP
Rejoice/Cultures Of Soul, Early 80s. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Weird and wild work from The Space Cats – a funk group from the clubbier years of the South African scene – but who work here in a lean style that's very much their own! The group's led by a bassist, and has some fantastic basslines right up front in the mix – driven by both drums and percussion, and layered with keyboards that are often very basic and hypnotic – not the electro modes of bigger, tighter acts of the time – but instead often this very thin current of electricity in the middle, sounding equally great on the instrumental and vocal tracks in the set! Most of the tunes are a click or two slower than the usual clubby work of the time, too – which further adds a unique quality – and titles include "Mother Earth", "Your Eyes Are So Sad", "Masambeni", "The Dead Of Night", "Something New", "Mystery", and "Ukhamba".

Fall1982 (Hex Enduction Hour/Room To Live/In A Hole/bonus tracks) (6CD set) ... CD
Kamera/Cherry Red (UK), 1982. New Copy 6CD ... $49.99
An amazing package – three great albums by The Fall, plus lots of bonus tracks too! First up is Hex Enduction Hour – one of our key go-to albums by The Fall – a set in which all their early promise really came into focus – with even more wit and power than before! The jagged lyricism of Mark E Smith is razor-sharp – as is the instrumentation, which is heavy on that trademark noisy guitar from Craig Scanlon, weird keyboards from Marc Riley, and the driving power of the double drummers in the group! The music is every bit as textually explosive as the words on the cover – and titles include "Who Makes The Nazis", "And This Day", "Jawbone & The Air Rifle", "The Classical", "Mere Psued Mag Ed", "Fortress/Deer Park", and the classic "Hip Priest". Is Room To Live the greatest album ever by the Fall? We're always tempted to say so – because there's something here so perfect, so focused, it's hard to think of a better album to illustrate the genius of Mark E Smith! The rhythms are weirder, the lyrics more poetic, and the guitars a bit more razor sharp than before – yet the record's also not going as easily for the catchy hooks and clever turns of phrase that would take a bit of steam out of the whole Fall sound in years to come. Darkness, but delivered with a smirk – and a record that still brings us limitless joy today! Titles include "Joker Hysterical Face", "Hard Life In The Country", "Marquis Cha Cha", "Room To Live", "Papal Visit", and "Solicitor In Studio". In A Hole is a fantastic double-length live album by The Fall – recorded at a time when the group was at the height of their creative powers! Tracks are pulled from their important early albums and singles, and delivered with a searing intensity that shows just how much the group could hang on to their jagged edge and razor-sharp wit in front of a live audience – especially one on the other side of the globe! Titles include "The Container Drivers", "Fantastic Life", "English Scheme", "Impression Of J Temperance", "Room To Live", "Hip Priest", "Marquis Cha Cha", "Backdrop", "Hard Life In The Country", "Who Makes The Nazis", "Gramme Friday", "Slags Slates Etc", and "Look Know". Box set features a bonus CD with Sessions, Singles, and Soundchecks – including material from live sets in Leeds, Manchester, and London, plus John Peel material from 1981. And another bonus CD with a full live set recorded in Melbourne, in 1982 – 14 tracks in all! CD

George FreemanNew Improved Funk ... CD
Groove Merchant/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $16.99
The title certainly gets it right – as the album's one of the funkiest ever from guitarist George Freeman, and one of the few to really hit that messed-up groove he was working in the clubs before his mid 70s retreat to Chicago! The style here is often all over the map – a mix of soul jazz and funkier numbers, but often served up with less of the direction than you'd get on Prestige, and even less of that on Groove Merchant – more in a raw small combo mode, with Freeman's guitar hitting plenty of raspy notes and weird solo excursions that keep even the mellower tunes exciting! The record features 2 different groups – one with John Young on piano, the other with Bobby Blevins on organ – and brother Von Freeman plays tenor sax on the whole set, although not nearly in the spotlight as George! (Definitely in keeping with something that Von told George many years back – quoted to us by George – "When you've got your own album, make sure that people know that you're the star!") Titles include "New Improved Funk", "Daffy", "Happy Fingers", "Confirmed Truth", "Guitar Lover Man", and "Big Finish". CD

Harley HatcherWild Wheels ... LP
RCA, 1969. Sealed ... Just Sold Out!
A weird batch of folksy rock tunes – composed and produced by Harley Hatcher for Sidewalk Enterprises, and sounding a lot more like a Sidewalk or Tower soundtrack than something on RCA. The groups are the usual obscurities that would show up on a Mike Curb soundtrack – pictured on the back cover, but still leaving us to wonder if they really existed at all. Tracks include "Holiday Rider" by The Saturday Revue, "Jailer Let Me Go Home" and "A Hurt In My Heart" by Don Epperson, "Playin Hard To Get" by Billie & Blue, and "Wine Women & Song" by Terry Stafford.

Rita LeeAtras Do Porto Tem Uma Cidade ... CD
Polydor (Brazil), 1974. New Copy ... $15.99
A wild solo project from Rita Lee – done after the breakup of Os Mutantes, and offered up almost as some sort of commentary on mainstream rock in the 70s! There's a much more straightforward approach to the music here – a sometimes-glammy sound that's echoed by the band's space-style costumes and makeup – but there's also some weirdly old-style rock instrumentation too, almost like the way that an artist like Gary Glitter could fold the 50s and 70s together in his music, and come across making something very weird and new. Here, the keyboards are almost stronger than the guitars – and Rita herself plays moog, melotron, organ, and piano – on titles that include "Tem Uma Cidade", "Menino Bonito", "Mame Natureza", and "Eclipse Do Cometa".

Gianfranco & Gian Piero ReverberiPreparati La Bara ... CD
Digitmovies (Italy), 1968. New Copy ... About May 25, 2020 (delayed)
A weird and wonderful western soundtrack from Italy – one that really lives up to the "reverb" in the name of the composers! There's some great use of isolated instrumentation here – a twanging guitar that echoes American guitar instrumentals of the 60s, but which also has a more sinister edge – and bits of piano too, often played with equal amounts of echo, and acting almost as a secondary set of theme! And although the film's an entry in the classic Django series, there's something very unusual to the soundtrack – a sense of difference and distinction that make it well worth seeking out even if you're not a usual fan of spaghetti western scores. The CD reissue is masterfully done – with the core 11 original tracks in stereo, and an additional 16 bonus tracks that include mono film versions and alternate takes. Titles include the vocal number "You Better Smile", sung by Nicola Di Bari – plus "Nel Saloon", "Lucas", "Peparati La Bara", "Canto Di Morte", "La Mitragliatrice", and "Cosa Vale Un Uomo". CD

Roxy MusicRoxy Music – Steven Wilson Stereo Mix (colored vinyl pressing) (2020 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Atco, 1972. New Copy ... On August 29, 2020
A mindblowing debut from Roxy Music – a record that took the world by storm in the 70s, and which is still pretty darn revolutionary all these many years later! Sure, the cover looks a bit cheesy and trashy, but the core of the music is amazing – this blistering array of guitars, electronics, and saxophone – all honed into songs that provide the perfect setting for the haunting vocals of Bryan Ferry! If you only know these guys from their later, softer work, you'll be quite surprised here – as the saxes by Andy Mackay are woven right in alongside the guitar of Phil Manzanera, and the album's laced with weird electronic and tape touches from Brian Eno. Peter Sinfield produced – as yet another mighty talent that was part of the proceedings – and titles include "Re-make/Re-Model", "Ladytron", "If There Is Something", "HB", "The Bob", "Chance Meeting", "Would You Believe", "Sea Breezes", and "Bitters End". (Note: Record Store Day 2020 has been rescheduled to separate special release days of August 29, September 26 and October 24. The specific release date for each previously announced title is yet to be announced and subject to change. Titles are in limited supply – and will be offered for sale first to customers who visit the Dusty Groove retail outlet in Chicago on August 29, September 26 and October 24 only if it is safe and responsible to open the store, with Covid-19 shelter in place orders no longer in place. Items will not be pre-sold or reserved in any way. However, we will offer up whatever we have left for sale online after 12pm Central on release day.) LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Speed, Glue & ShinkiSpeed, Glue & Shinki ... LP
Warner (Japan), 1972. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A hell of a record from a Japanese band who answered to nobody else – a combo who could come on with the ferocity of James Gang or some of their contemporaries, but also hit some even wilder, more experimental moments too – something they definitely do here in the space of the double-length of the album – which mixes full-on jammers full of fuzz and bluesy riffs with some of the weirder moments you might find on the farther reaches of The Beatles' White Album! Vocals are all in English, and given that the album was issued on Atlantic, we're not sure why they never tried to push these guys bigger in the states – as they're better than most of the rest of the period. Titles include "Sniffin & Snortin", "Run And Hide", "Bad Woman", "Red Doll", "Flat Fret Swing", "Calm Down", "Search For Love", "Wanna Take You You", and "Song For An Angel". LP, Vinyl record album

Gloria Ann TaylorLove Is A Hurtin Thing/Brother Less Than A Man (red colored vinyl pressing) ... 7-inch
Luv N' Haight, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $6.99 8.98
Some mighty fierce, almost freaky guitar starts out this rare gem from Gloria Ann Taylor – before these weirdly exotic strings come in and warm things up, then set a course for Taylor's vocals to follow! Guitar returns strongly for this nice trippy solo in the middle – and really makes the track something unique! "Brother Less Than A Man" has a nicely righteous vibe – congas with the rhythms, and this gospelly lead from Gloria right at the start – before soaring into the fierce, powerful groove of the cut – which almost feels like one of Archie Shepp's more spiritual experiments from the early 70s – but with heavy guitar instead of tenor! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Red vinyl pressing!)
