Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $18.99
Raw rockers, offbeat groovers, and lots more odd bits from the glory days of the indie single – pulled together here in a package that sounds as sexy as it looks! The Stag-O-Lee label has been giving us some great collections in recent years, and this one's right at the top of their stack – a really well-chosen batch of unusual singles from the early years of rock and soul – served up in a mighty nice 10" package. Titles include "The Call Of The Jungle" by Carl Stevens, "Princess Of Persia" by Billy Grammer, "Yabucoa" by Hector Rivera, "Similau" by Bobby Darin, "Alba's Shake" by Aris Carandanis, "This Must Be Love" by Ruth Christie, "Jack Hammer" by Rusty Evans, "Noah" by Grainger Hunt, and "Women Are The Root Of All Evil" by Paul Williams.

VariousGunsmoke Vol 3 – Dark Tales Of Western Noir From A Ghost Town Jukebox (10 inch vinyl) ... LP
Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $19.99
A cool collection of really oddball numbers – unusual country, offbeat pop numbers, and a fair bit of cuts that have a popcorn groove somewhere down there at the bottom! These aren't the usual sorts of cuts you might expect – and instead, the collection's definitely on the hipper side of the spectrum from the things we hear from the Stag O Lee label – almost like some of the great collections that the Trailer Park label's been putting out of late. Titles on this third volume include "Fire Of Love" by Jody Reynolds, "Lonely Moon" by Johnny Wells, "On The Horizon" by Ben E King, "Squaw Girl" by Fatima, "Hellbound Train" by Marie Robertson, "Tennessee Hillbilly Ghost" by Eddy Arnold, "Hard Working Man" by Dorsey Burnette, "Lumber City" by Big Buddy K, and "Wild Streak" by Johnny Fallin.

Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $19.99
Wonderful sounds from that amazing time in American music – a period when it seemed that there were so many records being made, new sounds were always finding a way to get onto vinyl! This collection represents an excellent criss-crossing of modes – exotic styles finding their way into soul, jazz, blues, R&B, and even a little bit of rock – thanks to plenty of weird instrumental modes used to great effect in the studio, and some nicely heavy percussion too! There's no set genre on the collection, but the music is all nicely unified in a fantasy of the exotic – which makes for some plenty playful tracks throughout. Titles include "I Want Her Back" by Dick Jordan, "Volcano" by Three Suns, "Rise Up & Walk" by Les Elgart, "Man From Utopia" by Donald Woods & The Vel Aires, "Kan Gu Wa" by The Scholars, "Ubangi Rock" by Chaino, "Ghost Train" by The Electro-Tones, "Little Doe Doe" by Curtis Knight, "Haunted Lover" by Carole Bennett, "Big Foot" by Googie Rene, and "Twistin Fever" by The Marcels.

VariousRockinitis Vols 1 & 2 – Electric Blues From The Rock & Roll Era ... CD
Stag O Lee (Germany), 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $15.99
Skip the "rock" in the title, because this set is pure blues all the way through – filled with rare treasures from those years when the electric guitar first started dominating the music – with a heady sound that rang from the Chicago scene down to Texas – and all the way out to the west coast as well! The package is maybe a bit more rough-edged and less gimmicky than some of other titles on the Stag O Lee label – with a strong focus on gritty blues from the heyday of the small indie label scene of the 50s. CD brings together both volumes 1 and 2 of the vinyl set – with 32 titles that include "Tell Me Who" by Bobo Jenkins, "I'm Gonna Love You" by Eddie Taylor, "Mean Old Train" by Papa Lightfoot, "I Feel So Worried" by Sammy Lewis, "The Wolf Pack" by Kid Thomas, "Just You & I" by Guitar Red, "Your Love Keeps A Workin On Me" by Lulu Reed, "Don't Cut Out On Me" by Tender Slim, "I'm Tired Of Beggin" by The Sly Fox, "Please Don't Go" by Johnny Acey, "Shim Sham Shimmy" by Champion Jack Dupree, "Just Can't Say" by Willie Nix, "It Takes Time" by Otis Rush, "609 Boogie" by John Lee Hooker, "Hard Hearted Woman" by Eddie Burns, "Stranger Blues" by Elmore James, "Little Tiger" by H-Bomb Ferguson, "You Give Me Nothin But The Blues" by Guitar Slim, "The Late Freight Twist (part 1)" by Floyd Dixon, "I Wish You Would" by Billy Boy, "Don't Start Cryin Now" by Slim Harpo, and "A Fool No More" by Eddie Hope.

✨✧ VariousSongs From Satan's Jukebox Vols 1 & 2 – Country, Rockabilly, Hillbilly, & Gospel For Satan's Sake ... CD
Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $15.99
A host of great songs about the devil – served up here in an array of raw styles from the glory days of the indie single! Long before metal rockers and other groups brought a love of Satan into the musical mainstream, there were a host of other artists who were singing about the dark prince in a very different way – respectfully fearful, and woefully repentant – in modes that were equally well suited to hillbilly, rockabilly, and even a bit of gospel interpretation! This set focuses most strongly on those redemptive modes that emerged from hillbilly, and moved into rock and country as the 60s approached – and as with other Stag-O-Lee collections, the choice of singles is as wonderful as the overall package. Titles include "I Could Love The Devil Out Of You" by Joe Carson, "Satan's A-Waiting" by Sonny Burns, "Devil's Child" by Anita Carter, "Satan's Wife" by Jessie Floyd, "The Devil's Queen" by Johnny & Dorsey Burnette, "Hell Bound Train" by Frank Hutchinson, "Devil In The Bayou" by Harry Choats, "The Devil My Conscience & I" by Billy Barton,"The Devil Made A Masterpiece" by Johnny Horton, "Let Me Go Devil" by Johnny Bond, "Race With The Devil" by Gene Vincent, "The Devil's Train" by Roy Acuff, "Devil's Hot Rod" by Johnny Tyler, "Let Me Go Devil" by Wade Ray, "Get Behind Me Satan" by Reno & Smiley, "Miss Satan" by Frankie Laine, "Satan's Jeweled Crown" by The Louvin Brothers, and "Don't Shake Hands With The Devil" by Cowboy Copas. 24 tracks in all!

VariousTrash Can Records Vol 3 – The Devil's Pad – One Man's Trash Is Another Man's Treasure (10 inch LP) ... LP
Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $18.99
Get these records out of the trash and on to your turntable – because they're way too good to throw away! In fact, they're so good they're great – the kind of sweet little platters that were so ahead of their time, they were probably never appreciated back in the day – and which often have a kind of genre-hopping, category-stomping quality that makes them ripe for rediscovery all these many years later! As with other collections on the Stag-O-Lee label, there's a real love for the obscure going on here – and a fair bit of the tunes mix together raunchy rock or R&B instrumentation with lots of Latin or exotic currents in the rhythms. Titles on volume 3 include "Tequila" by Didier Lapayrere, "Voo Doo Dolly" by Jimmie Hombs & The Invictas, "Limbo" by Westwoods, "Temptation" by Maria Elena & The Twilights, "The Devil's Pad" by Paul Leader & The HB Barnum's Circats, "Trap Of Love" by The Premiers, "Kookie's Mad Pad" by Ed Kookie Byrnes, "Theme From Von Hutch" by Jerry Madison & The Space Men, and "Cool Man" by Jerry Hanson.

Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A strange title, a strange cover, and lots of strange sounds within – a set that's very much in keeping with the mad mix of music we've loved from the Stag-O-Lee label over the years! As with other entries in this series, it's a bit hard to say what style of music the set really holds – as there's bits of R&B, early soul, raw rock, and even some exotic modes – tied together in a strangely wonderful blend of songs! Titles include "Don't Leave My Arms" by Terry Phillips, "The Magic Ring" by Dante & Friends, "The Day I Died" by Scott Garrett, "Ain't That Bad" by Pancho Villa & The Bandits, "Shakin All Over" by Tommy Bruce, "Say There" by Wes Reynolds, "Similau" by The Eloise Trio, "Loc A Li" by Little Victor & His Jivin Five, and "Oh Lord Give Me Back My Baby" by Bobby Nichols.

Rare, raw tracks in the best sort of mode we've come to expect from the Stag-O-Lee label – the kind of sounds we've really been digging on their 10" vinyl compilations, but presented here in support of the Buzzsaw Joint club night in London! The tracks are all from the start of the 60s, and all from rare pieces of 45rpm vinyl – work by artists working in a rough blend of blues, R&B, swamp rock, and other rough-edged styles from the time. Titles on this 5th volume include "Jungle Love" by Bill Springer, "Look What You Do To Me" by Stick Evans, "Desert Caravan" by The Starfires, "Zei Gezunt" by Don Schraier Rocktet, "Toot Over" by Blues Blenders, "Get Lost" by The Metallics, "Hawaiian People Eater" by Jimmy Uke & His Islanders, "Certingly I Do" by Doodie Woo, "El Lobo" by The Demons, and "Screw Driver" by Rhythmaires.

Be! (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 6CD ... Out Of Stock
A stunning 6CD set – one that's overflowing with rare rockabilly, weird hillbilly, and lots of other raw and raunchy material from the glory days of the indie single! The box brings together all the material from the Rockin Rarities LP collection – a total of 11 full records, presented here with bonus tracks too – to make for almost 200 titles in all, all with the kind of gritty, underground vibe that makes digging through the late 50s/early 60s scene so great as the years go on! Despite the fact that we've got countless other collections of this sort of material – on labels like Bear Family, Stag-O-Lee, and Buffalo Bop – there's a huge amount here we'd never heard before, in a presentation that's very much in keeping with the excellent level that the Be label brings to their jazz box sets, or their Florida and Texas Box collections of other rare singles. There's way too many tracks here to even begin to list – but we can tell you that along with rare singles and unissued material, the set includes work by artists Johnny Fallin, Danny Carl, Teen Beats, Ward Darby & The Raves, Victor, Roosevelt Grier, Darrell Felts, Rockin Rebels, Carl Martin Trio, Tru-Tones, Outer Limits, Chy Guys, Gene King & His Mecaton Band, Satellite Band, DY & The Motivators, Artie Wilson, Gestics, Floyd Brown, Adrian & The Sunsets, and dozens of other artists you'll discover in this collection.

✨✧ Mississippi John HurtWorried Blues (180 gram pressing – with download) ... LP
Fat Possum, 1964. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Rare recordings of delta blues legend Mississippi John Hurt – captured solo and beautifully well on 3 dates in late 1964, recorded by Gene Rosenthal – with Hurt's distinctive way of a somehow gentle melodic acoustic blues guitar sound, coming from hard-strummed and plucked strings as unvarnished and amazing as can be – and a way with vocals that's just as unique and wonderful! It's got the intimacy of the best field recordings, but the sound quality and John's voice and guitar are in such fine form here, it feels "big" despite being as raw and real as can be. Includes "Slidin' Delta", "Louis Collins", "Staggerlee", "Monday Mornin' Blues", "Comin' Home", "Make Me A Pallet On Your Floor", "You Can't Come In", "Joe Turner", "Lonesome Am I", "Trouble Blues", "Nobody's Dirty Business", "Lovin' Spoonful", "Worried Blues" and "Avalon Blues".

Uptempo blues and uptown r&b from Mr Personality himself – the great Lloyd Price – a huge batch of numbers cut in the late 50s and beginning of the 60s! The set is of full of chiming, hook filled singles like the huge title track – with fairly brassy arrangements, piano and chorus backing vocals usually well up in the mix – but Lloyd carries the groove perfectly well – there's no matching his charismatic vocals! 27 tracks in all: "Stagger Lee", "You Need Love", "Where Were You On Our Wedding Day", "Personality", "Have You Ever Had The Blues", "Lady Luck", "Question", "Oh Oh Oh", "Mailman Blues", "Why", "Lawdy Miss Clawdy", "Shop Around", "At Last", "Spanish Harlem", "Once In A While" and much more!

Columbia, 1977. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $6.99
A really amazing little record – way more than usual for this sort of live recording – given that it features some very unique performances together by artists we've never heard on the same stage otherwise! The premise is simple, but wonderfully effective – in that the album brings together some of the leading lights of the Columbia/CBS jazz stable at the time – a massive lineup of talent from a few key generations in jazz, sounding surprisingly great hear together! All tracks are nice and long – and titles include a brilliant version of "Infant Eyes" by a quartet with Stan Getz on tenor and Bob James on piano; "Fried Bananas" with Dexter Gordon on tenor, Slide Hampton on trombone, Woody Shaw on trumpet, and George Duke on piano; "Bahama Mama" with Bob James on keyboards, Bobbi Humphrey on flute, Eric Gale and Steve Kahn on guitars, and Billy Cobham on drums – and the long jam session tracks "Montreux Summit", "Blues March", and "Andromeda" – which feature work from most of the players above, all working in one large group – plus added flute from Hubert Laws and Thijs Van Leer, percussion from Ralph Maconald, and bass from Alphonso Johnson.

Aretha FranklinIn The Beginning – The World Of Aretha Franklin 1960 to 1967 ... LP
Columbia, 1960s. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $6.99
A sweet overview of the early years of Aretha Franklin's career – her formative days at Columbia Records, when she was working in a variety of styles before heading over to bigger fame at Atlantic! Even at this early stage, Aretha's one hell of a singer – and, despite what folks who listen to Jerry Wexler might say, this early Columbia work is pretty darn amazing throughout – steeped in a number of different modes, with bits of jazz, R&B, and early soul sewn together beautifully throughout. The double-length set is filled with key early moments from Aretha – and titles include "Don't Cry Baby", "Lee Cross", "Skylark", "One Step Ahead", "Evil Gal Blues", "Take A Look", "Runnin Out Of Fools", "People", "Try A Little Tenderness", and "Take It Like You Give It".

Steeplechase (Denmark), 1975. Near Mint- ... $29.99
Excellent work from Clifford Jordan – far better than the usual Steeplechase session of the time! The vibe here is similar to Jordan's work at the time on the Strata East label – played in a very similar group, with Cedar Walton on piano, Sam Jones on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums – way more than just a standard rhythm section, and with Jordan in tow, a compelling quartet with a really unique sound! There's a great depth to the work here – hardly the American soloist taking up space that you might get on other European live dates from the period – and the tracks are long, with an angular soul jazz finish. Both Jordan and Walton get plenty of room for expression – and titles on this third volume include "Seven Minds", "Shoulders", "St Thomas", and "Bleecker Street Theme". LP, Vinyl record album

Hector Lavoe's vocals are wrapped tightly and beautifully here in Willie Colon production – and the album's one of the classics from the pair recorded at the height of Lavoe's solo career! The sound is tight and dynamic, but never too over the top – and although Lavoe's vocals are certainly center stage on the record, there's also some tremendous flourishes from the backing players that really drive the set. And as a surprisingly highlight, the album actually features one instrumental track – very odd for a Hector Lavoe album – a mellow reading of Lee Morgan's "Ceora", done with a fair bit of strings on this version. Arrangements are by Jose Febles and Jose Madero – and titles include "El Sabio", "Alejate", "Llore", "Ceora", and "Para Ochun". LP, Vinyl record album

Birgit LystagerBirgit Lystager ... LP
RCA (Denmark), 1970. Sealed ... $29.99
A very groovy singer – with a really wonderful feel! Birgit hails from Denmark, and has the icy Scandinavian jazz vocal approach of singers like Monica Zetterlund or Karin Krog – equally well suited to standard jazz material, as it is to electric oriented tunes or bossa nova, both of which appear on this set! The overall style is almost in a Sergio Mendes Brasil 66 style – light poppy touches at times, bubbling with a bit of bossa and some cool grooves laid out on organ and piano, with some occasional backing vocals on a few tracks. Groovy sunshine pop from the Baltic scene of the early 70s – with tracks that include versions of "Sunny", "Pretty World", "Fool On The Hill", "Melting Pot", "Make It With You", "Gimme Little Sign", and "Sometimes".

Lee MosesTime & Place ... LP
Maple, 1971. Sealed ... $24.99
A lost deep soul set from Lee Moses – a relatively obscure vocalist, but one who we'd rank right up there with James Carr, Wilson Pickett, or any of their contemporaries! Lee's music has a hard southern soul feel to it – sounding almost like a pile of 45s from a label like Sound Stage 7, or some more obscure imprint from below the Mason-Dixon line – even though the record was issued on the Maple label up north. And possibly it's Lee's odd northern placement with a deeply southern style that never got him his due back in the day – but that loss is our gain, as the record's an under-discovered treasure that's filled with really hard-wailing soul tunes! There's a slightly garagey feel to the production – quite gritty at times, with even more of an earthier undercurrent than you'd hear on work from Memphis or Muscle Shoals – and Lee matches this sound wonderfully with a really raspy approach to vocals. Titles include a great version of "California Dreaming", plus the tracks "Time & Place", "Got That Will", "Every Boy & Girl", "Hey Joe", "Free At Last", and "Adorable One". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousMoodsetters – From The Amphonic & Soundstage Library ... LP
Buried Treasure (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $16.99
A buried treasure's worth of gems from the Amphonic sound library – the record company started by Syd Dale – whose 60s work for KPM was some of the grooviest of the time! Syd's on a few cuts here, but most of the music is by other names who recorded for the company – including a few you'll know from earlier British jazz recordings in the mainstream, mixed with others who are lesser-known sound library talents – often with a strong electric vibe to their sound! Given the date range here – the tracks run from 1973 to 1985 – it's great to hear the evolution of the UK sound library modes in this second generation of the scene – and a good number of the cuts have some especially strong keyboard modes. Titles include "Border Incident" by Alan Parker, "Bleeps & Impulses" by Robert Alan Owen, "Rhythm Riot" and "Hostile Moods" by Frank Ricotti, "Marlow PI" by Vick Flick, "The New Elizabethans" by Harpsichord Rhythm Group, "Bubblegum" and "Computer Pop" by Anne Dudley, "Interface" by Monica Beale, "Thunderfoot" by Keith Mansfield, "All On A Summer's Day" by Syd Dale, "News Travels Fast" and "Tribal Warfare" by Jim Lawless, and "January's Child" by Paddy Kingsland.

✨✧ Jerry Lee LewisGolden Hits Of/Live At The Star Club/Greatest Live Show On Earth/By Request ... CD
Smash/BGO (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A quartet of early Smash Records albums from Jerry Lee Lewis – including some especially smoking live material! First up is Golden Hits – an early moment of Smash Records genius from Jerry Lee Lewis – a set that was one of his first for the label, after many years at Sun – and a record that definitely sought to leave the new imprint's stamp on the material! As the title implies, most of the tracks are older hits by Jerry – Sun Records material, but recast here with some of the 60s fullness that Smash did so well – although oddly not far from the roots of Sun, given that the whole thing was recorded at the Nashville studios of Sam Phillips, with Billy Sherrill at the engineering deck! Technical details aside, though – Jerry's already starting to show some of those country modes that would set fire to the second chapter of his career – on titles that include "Down The Line", "End Of The Road", "Break Up", "You Win Again", "Crazy Arms", "Fools Like Me", and "I'll Make It Up To You". Live At The Star Club was recorded in Hamburg, Germany – and is an incredible 60s performance from Jerry Lee Lewis – proof that the man was always on fire when he worked overseas, even if his star had dimmed a bit back home! Jerry gets sharp, tight backings from The Nashville Teens – but the Lewis is center stage throughout – really wailing on piano, and singing in this unbridled style that maybe even blows away his early singles – especially when combined with the sense of personality he brings out in a live setting. Titles include "Money", "What'd I Say", "I Got A Woman", "Whole Lotta Shakin Goin On", "Long Tall Sally", "Lewis Boogie", and "Matchbox". Greatest Live Show On Earth is a great early live album from the Smash Records years of Jerry Lee Lewis – and a set that really shows the new fire that was burning for the singer as he moved away from Sun Records! Smash always did a great job with live records – and this one's got a great approach that really captures the enthusiasm of the audience, the intensity of the performance, and all the charms of the man himself! Both Jerry's vocals and piano are very well-recorded – and titles include "Who Will The Next Fool Be", "No Particular Place To Go", "Together Again", "Long Tall Sally", "I Got A Woman", "Memphis", and "Jenny Jenny". On By Request, another live set from 1966 – Jerry's working with the super-tight Memphis Beats, who really manage to keep time with the boundless energy of their leader! Jerry's completely on fire – both vocally, and on the piano – which he completely decimates with fast-moving chords, and the kind of keyboard runs that must have been a piano tuner's nightmare! There's also just a hint of the country that would soon become a much bigger part of Jerry's career – mixed with really strong live versions of early rockin hits. Titles include "Little Queenie", "How's My Ex Treating You", "Money", "Crying Time", "I'll Sail My Ship Alone", "You Win Again", and "Green Green Grass Of Home". CD

✨✧ David BowieNew Career In A New Town – 1977 to 1982 (11CD box set) ... CD
Parlophone, Late 70s/Early 80s. Used 11 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Amazing music from one of our most-treasured stretches of David Bowie's career – that creatively-fertile time when he escaped to West Berlin, hid from the mainstream, and made some groundbreaking records with Brian Eno – then returned to the limelight to remind us all that he was still a hell of a force to be reckoned with! The set includes everything post-Thin White Duke, and pre-Let's Dance – a run of music that's still shaping new sounds on this planet all these many years later. The set begins with Low – the mix of experimental instrumentals and subtle vocal tracks that was a complete change from Ziggy Stardust – and follows with Heroes, Lodger, and Scary Monsters & Super Creeps – all albums that reintroduce some sense of song and lyrical interplay, but at a level that clearly indicates how important Bowie was to the generation of post-punk and new wave as his earlier work was to psych, prog, and glam! But the package isn't just a standard collection of albums – because along with those four studio records, it also features the live album Stage, presented here in two different full mixes – plus a new 2017 mix of Lodger, which really increases the edge. There's also a special Heroes EP, with all the different language versions of the song – and a very cool Re:Call 3 album – which features all the singles that were issued at the time, plus other rare material – and Bowie's very unique take on Bertolt Brecht's Baal. Titles on this album include "Alabama Song", "Crystal Japan", "Under Pressure", "Remembering Marie A", "The Drowned Girl", "The Dirty Song", "Cat People", and even his "Peace On Earth/Little Drummer Boy" duet with Bing Crosby. As with other entries in this complete Bowie series, the presentation is wonderful – album sleeve replicas, great packaging, and lots of notes – kind of a treasure, even if you already own some of the records!

✨✧ Earth Wind & FireGratitude ... LP
Columbia, 1975. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $9.99
Great stuff! Although a live album, Gratitude is one of Earth Wind & Fire's greatest from the mid 70s – a very tight batch of grooves that proves that Maurice White & Co. could play just as well on stage as they could in the studio – and the noise of the crowd going wild is enough to confirm that! And although a live set, the record's actually a bit half and half – with a few added studio tunes to keep the hits coming. Includes their classic version of Skip Scarborough's "Can't Hide Love", plus the mellow jams "Yearnin' Learnin'" and "Reasons", the funky "Shining Star", and a great cover of "Sun Goddess", which was also done by Ramsey Lewis with the group.

Pacific Jazz, 1953. Very Good ... $19.99
Gerry's second 10" album for the Pacific Jazz label – and almost as groundbreaking as the first! Not only is the quartet with Chet Baker featured strongly on side 1 – with classics that include "Cherry", "Carson City Stage", and "Motel" – but Lee Konitz joins the group on side two, cutting things up with his angular alto sax – a sound that's beautifully placed next to the poised horns of Mulligan and Baker, in a way that really gives the record even more life! Titles on that side include "Sextet", "I Can't Believe That You're In Love With Me", "Lover Man", and "Lady Be Good". LP, Vinyl record album

A brilliant mix of jazz and world music! Abdul-Malik was the legendary bass player from the fifties who mixed straight jazz playing with traditional Middle Eastern rhythms – and although he most famously recorded albums with Monk as a regular bassist, his albums on his own are amazing blends of jazz and world music, done years before anyone else had contemplated doing so! This album is similar to Abdul-Malik's Jazz Sahara album, in which he plays quite a bit on the Oud – but in this one the ensemble is much more jazz-oriented, and features Lee Morgan, Curtis Fuller, Benny Golson, and Johnny Griffin. The Oud holds center stage on most tracks, but then it drops out, and Morgan and Griffin come wailing in on solos that will rip your socks off! Titles include "Rooh", "La Ibky", "Takseem", "Searchin", and "El Ghada". Fantastic!!!! LP, Vinyl record album

Lee MorganSonic Boom (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Blue Note, 1967/1969. Used ... $18.99
Lost genius from trumpeter Lee Morgan – a session recorded for Blue Note in 1967, but not issued until the late 70s – and even then, only for a very short time! The session has Morgan moving into that wonderful last stage of his career – working in tight formation towards a sound that still had that groovier hardbop styles of earlier recordings, but which also unfolds towards a more ambitious spiritual jazz mode. The writing on the session is superb – original tunes that crackle with energy in a surge of dark notes and shadowy moods, inspiring the soloists to express themselves at levels that rank with their best work of the time! The group features David Newman on tenor – sounding completely different, and far more righteous, than on his Atlantic sides of the 60s – plus Cedar Walton on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums. A great sound overall – right up there with Tom Cat or The Gigolo for lyrical modernism – and with titles that include "Sneaky Pete", "The Mercenary", "Sonic Boom", and "Mumbo Jumbo". Plus, the album is expanded here by 6 more tracks – all recorded in 1969, and only briefly issued on a 2LP late 70s album called The Procrastinator. These tunes have a slightly different, almost sadder feel – with a group that includes Julian Priester, George Coleman, and Harold Mabern – on more wonderful originals that include "Cla Til Da", "Uncle Rough", "Mr Johnson", and "The Stroker".

✨✧ Sun Ra & John CageJohn Cage Meets Sun Ra – The Complete Film (DVD & clear vinyl 7 inch single) (2019 Record Store Day Release) ... DVD
Modern Harmonic, 1987. New Copy DVD & 7 inch ... $25.99
A fantastic package – a 7" sleeve that contains the full film of the meeting between Sun Ra and John Cage – legendary meeting of talents from two different sides of the underground – avant composer Cage and jazz visionary Ra – both performing together at a special one-night event that took place at Coney Island in 1987! The set doesn't really feature Ra jamming with Cage (as if anyone could "jam" with John Cage!) – and instead, both players were on the stage at the same time, but would each step aside to let the other do their thing – Cage would vocalize in these amazing passages that are right up there with the most beautiful vocal work he ever did, alongside some "silent" performances too – and Ra would play keyboard solos that have a beautifully offbeat electric vibe! The package features the full film on DVD for the first time ever – and also includes a bonus 7" single – with the selections "Empty Words & Keyboards" and "Silent Duet 2" – both of them very unusual meetings of the minds.

Pete TownshendWho Came First (2CD version – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Universal, 1972. New Copy 2 CDs ... $31.99 39.98
A fantastic first album from Pete Townshend – one that showed the world that he was a hell of a force to be reckoned with, even away from The Who! There's some elements here that link back to Pete's work with the band, but the music here is already showing lots of new ideas brewing in his solo space – some of the greater sensitivity of Townshend's solo voice – which might not always get showcased when Roger Daltrey was taking the lead – and also some different musical strands that might not have been right for The Who. Ronnie Lane takes the lead on "Evolution" – which you'll recognize from the world of The Faces – and other titles include the original acoustic version of "Pure & Easy", plus "Nothing Is Everything (Let's See Action)", "Time Is Passing", "Forever's No Time At All", "There's A Heartache Following Me", "Content", "Parvardigar", and "Sheraton Gibson". This expanded version comes in a cool book-size package, with added liner notes and new mastering. Also features 16 more bonus tracks that include "His Hands", "The Seeker (2017 edit)", "Sleeping Dog", "Day Of Silence", "Mary Jane (stage a)", "I Always Say (2017 edit)", "Begin The Beguine (2017 mix)", "Baby O'Riley (instrumental)", "The Love Man (stage c)", "Content (stage a)", "Parvardigar (alt take)", "There's A Fortune In Those Hills", "Meher Baby In Italy", "Nothing Is Everything (earlier take)", "Evolution (live)", and "Drowned (live in India)".

Ike & Tina TurnerIn Person – Ike & Tina Turner & The Ikettes (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Minit/Universal (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $29.99
A set that does a fantastic job of capturing the great energy that Ike & Tina Turner brought to their famous live appearances – honed to a sharp edge by this time in their career, thanks to countless years on the road! Ike was always as much a master of ceremonies as James Brown was on the stage – and here, he makes ample space for Tina Turner's lead vocals, great support from The Ikettes, and some especially great work from his band – who are increasingly funky here than just a few years before! Many of the tunes are numbers originally done by others, but really transformed in this setting – and the record also features introductory patter from DJs Bob Jones and Herb Campbell – and titles that include "There Was A Time/African Boos", "A Fool In Love", "Funky Street", "Everyday People", "Gimme Some Loving", "Son Of A Preacher Man", "Respect", and "Goodbye So Long" CD

The Ike & Tina Turner Revue shakes the foundation at Carnegie Hall on April Fools Day, 1971! There's a good reason for there being so many live albums by Ike & Tina – it's because they're damn great on stage – and this NYC set is a strong showcase for The Ikettes and The Kings Of Rhythm, too! The group was riding a peak wave of popularity around this time, and they cover a wide variety of songs in a set that's masterfully-paced – starting out slow and building up intensity as it goes! Titles include the Ikettes-led "Piece Of My Heart" and "Everyday People", the thunderous Tina intro "Doin' The Tina Turner", "Sweet Soul Music", "Proud Mary", "I Smell Trouble", "Ike's Tune", "I Want To Take You Higher", "I've Been Loving You Too Long", "Respect" and more.

✨✧ Rickie Lee JonesRickie Lee Jones ... LP
Warner, 1979. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sure, Rickie Lee Jones went onto become a bit of a cliche in later years, but this early album's still got an undeniable power – and was a great breath of fresh air, at a time when it seemed like most of modern music was forgetting its roots! What is it with the LA scene from the 60s onward that they always seemed to find their best inspiration in the past? Artists like Harpers Bizarre, Randy Newman, Tom Waits and others set the stage for a record like this – by reaching back into older styles and bringing them forward with a more contemporary spin. (And why was it that LA seemed to be the center of this mode – and New York, Chicago, and other cities never worked that way?) Rickie serves up a nice assortment of older-styled vocal cuts – performed with a mixture of traditional and 70s jazz backings, supported by some extra-classy Warner production from Lenny Waronker. Titles are all originals, but done with an older hipser sort of feel – and titles include "Easy Money", "Chuck E's In Love", "Young Blood", "The Last Chance Texaco", "Danny's All Star Joint", "Weasel & The White Boys Cool", "Company", "Coolsville", and "On Saturday Afternoons In 1963".

The session lines Wes up with the very tight rhythm team of Tommy Flanagan on piano, Percy Heath on bass, and Albert Heath on drums – all of whom lay back and mostly let Wes take center stage – sparkling on a number of original tunes that include "West Coast Blues", "Mister Walker", and "D Natural Blues". Other tracks include a great fast take on Sonny Rollins' "Airegin", plus "In Your Own Sweet Way" and "Polka Dots & Moonbeams". CD

✨✧ BreakwaterBreakwater/Splashdown (with bonus track) ... CD
Expansion (UK), 1978/1980. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A landmark pairing of records from a group who only ever gave the world two albums – but who've gone on to have a huge influence over the years! The first album, the initial offering from Breakwater, is a masterful blend of jazzy fusion and mellower soul – a sound sifted together so perfectly, it really tops the rest of the combo's contemporaries – hitting a careful balance that never gets too cheesy or commercial, and which still manages to glow as strongly into the 21st century as it did when first released back in the day! The sound here is sublime – warm, but never sleepy – jazzy, but never cliched – and mixed in such a way that the vocals and instruments almost get center stage in the spotlight without trying to crowd one another out. Titles include the incredible "Work it Out" – worth the price of the record alone – plus "No Limit", "That's Not What We Came Here For", "Free Yourself", "Do It Till The Fluid Gets Hot", and "Feel Your Way". Splashdown has a perfect blend of jazz and soul that only a few groups in the 70s really got right – maybe Pleasure, or The Blackbyrds – and most certainly Breakwater, who were one of the reigning champions of the scene! Rhythms are often upbeat, but not in a disco or club-oriented way – and the instrumentation is tight, but never slick or smooth – always nicely funky with a nice little crackle, even on the mellow cuts – in a way that's opened up this album to new audiences for many years. This set's got a nice bit of moog that wasn't on the group's first – used almost in Mizell-like to further enhance the sound – and titles include the classics "Say You Love Me Girl", "Let Love In", "Time", and "The One In My Dreams". CD also features a bonus track – "No Limit (ext version)". CD

P-Vine (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Mad funky vibes from The Wooden Glass – a group led by vibist Billy Wooten – an obscure player in the history books, but one who has had a huge influence on 21st Century groove! Billy's got a hard style on the vibes that's like Bobby Hutcherson and Roy Ayers at their soulful best – working here with a tight combo that includes guitar and organ, very much in the mode of his classic work with the slightly more famous (although equally obscure) Indianapolis combo The Ninteenth Whole! The set's a live one, but it really cooks with a sweet electric feel – echoey, funky, and soulful – as tunes spin out in a staggering approach to the vibes that's unmatched by any record of its time. Billy was a huge influence on Madlib and the sound of Yesterday's New Quintet – and hearing this set, it's virtually a blueprint for that group's current work! Includes great covers of "In The Rain", "Day Dreaming", and "Love Is Here" – plus Wooten's excellent original tracks "Monkey Hips & Rice" and "Joy Ride". CD

Pino clearly takes a lot of cues from The Godfather in the way he leads the band – working with an MC who starts the set and calls him to the stage, then belting out the lyrics in a voice that may not be as screechingly soulful as James, but which has the same sort of punch and hard-bitten political undercurrent! The instrumentation includes lots of heavy percussion, fast-riffing guitar, and this great electric piano that's thin, but very cool – almost giving a spacey sound to the heavier funk at the bottom of the tunes! Tracks include "Blackman Was Born To Be Free", "Man Pass Main, Iron De Cut Iron", "Right In The Centre", "On The Spot", "Woman Experience", and "Afro Soco Soul Live". CD
