Sly & RobbiePresent Taxi ... LP
Mango, 1981. Very Good- ... $9.99
Compilation of tracks produced by Sly & Robbie just as they were getting the Taxi gang started and stepping out as producers in their own right, at the dawn of the Dancehall era. The rhythm tracks are top notc –, and in a lot of ways, this is our favorite period for these 2 reggae greats. They've gathered some amazing vocalists together, including Gregory Isaacs, Junior Delgado, the Wailing Souls & Dennis Brown. 12 tracks in all, including the Tamlins version of "Smiling Faces Sometimes", Dennis Brown "Sitting 7 Watching", Sly's "Hot Your Hot", Wailing Souls "Old Broom" Gregory Isaacs "Oh What A Feeling" & Jr. Delgado's "Merry Go Round".

VariousSly & Robbie Present – Taxi Gang In Disco Mix Style 1977 to 1987 ... CD
Cree (Germany), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy ... $13.99 21.99
A very cool side of the Sly & Robbie legend – a series of recordings the duo made with a range of different singers – all as Jamaican-styled remakes of American soul and club tracks from the 70s! The vibe here is definitely more reggae than disco – with a groove slowed down a lot more than the speed of Studio 54 – and the pair are really coming into their own as creative talents, working on the experience they gained for years on other folks' records – which really helps create the right sort of rhythms for these grooves. As you'd guess from the dates in the title, the set stretches into the digital reggae years – which turned out to be one of the most productive periods for Sly & Robbie – and titles include "Sexual Healing" by Jimmy Riley, "Show & Tell" by Ken Boothe, "Could It Be I'm Falling In Love" by Home T-4, "Inner City Blues" by Delroy Wilson, "Break Your Promise" by Barry Biggs, "You Must Believe In Me" by Junior Tamlins Moore, "Fever" by Marcia Griffiths, and "Rainy Night In Georgia" by Tinga Stewart.

✨✧ VariousBush Taxi Mali – Field Recordings From Mali ... LP
Sublime Frequencies, 1998. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The cover is a great illustration of the feel of this set – a mound of clay and earth, with a speaker set at the top – an image that really gets at the organic feel of the music inside! The set's one of the earlier recordings in the Sublime Frequencies lineage, and if offers up a great late 90s approach to Malian music – one that's much more up-close and personal than some of the bigger productions of the period. The sessions were recorded in a few different areas, with artists who include Amanita Diabate, Koman Diabate, Sidiki Kouyate, Lasan Tougara, and Kassemadi Kamissoko – all captured in a stripped-down style, but still with excellent sound quality. Titles include "Radio Bamako", "Autorail", "Sanan Kovya", "O Mansa Musa", "Dogon Country At Night", "Deni Meba", and "Segou". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Black UhuruDub Factor ... LP
Taxi (Jamaica), 1983. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of our top 10 dub albums of all time! This LP bridges the gap between the the low-fi, down and dirty excursions of the 70's dub era, and the later high tech dub revolution brought on by On-U, Mad Professor and Jah Shaka. The rhythms here are all first rate, drawn mostly from their Chill Out LP with a few from Red, fueled by Sly and Robbie and a cast of regulars from the Island/Mango stable. Sly & Robbie also handle the production duties, and there's no shortage of fat grooves and unrelenting rhythms, then taken to the next level with deep space echo drops and 21st century sound effects and tape edits. Includes "Ion Storm", "Big Spliff", "Boof'N'Baff'N'Biff", "Puffed Out" and "Android Rebellion". LP, Vinyl record album

Count Basie with Lester YoungLester Leaps In ... CD
Epic (Japan), Late 30s/1955. Used ... $14.99
A beautiful mid 50s issue of some of the classic material that Lester Young recorded with Count Basie during the late 30s – all nicely packaged with a great cover, and annotated in a way that offers a lot more information than the original release of the material on 78rpm discs! These are the records that made Lester a giant – and for good reason, as the Basie setting seems to propel Young's horn with even more force than it might have on its own – allowing a great setting for the fresh voice that would go onto transform generations of tenor players to come! The set features 12 tracks in all – and titles include "Moten Swing", "Taxi War Dance", "Dickie's Dream", "Jump For Me", "Song Of The Islands", and "Lester Leaps In". CD

The vinyl version features 12 standout tracks – with backing by The Taxi Gang, The Professionals, Derrick Harriott & Crystalistes, Aggrovators & Roots Radics. Titles include "Promise Land (Extended Mix)", "Whip Them Jah Jah", "Song My Mother Used To Sing", "Created By The Father", "Rebel With A Cause", "Words Of Wisdom", "Voice Of My Father", and "Children Of Israel (Special 12" Mix)".

Bob JamesGenie ... LP
CTI, 1983. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
A smooth set of keyboard instrumentals built around Bob James' famous theme to the TV show Taxi – also known as "Angela", and probably the way that most mainstream folks know Bob's work! And although that track was plenty famous, it's still a really great number that echoes out with amazing Fender Rhodes notes that never fail to please! "Angela" is included here – along with 9 other tunes that have Bob tweaking around the keys a bit more than usual, going for a few more upbeat tunes, and some slower ones with that sad TV-emotion kind of sound – a nice kind of balance that almost serves as an ersatz soundtrack for the many moods of Taxi. Titles include "Groove For Julie", "Hello Nardo", "The Marilu", "New York Mellow", "Night Moods", and "Angela". LP, Vinyl record album

Annie PhilippeSensationnel! – Ye Ye Bonbons 1965 to 1968 ... LP
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $19.99
Beautifully groovy work from mid 60s France – all by a singer who's every bit as great as France Gall, Francoise Hardy, or other French greats of the time – but not nearly as well known! This cool collection should correct that fact, as it finally gives worldwide exposure to this brilliant material from Annie Philippe – a bold-voiced female singer whose delivery of the songs is superb throughout – augmented by early arrangements from the likes of Jean-Claude Vannier, Paul Mauriat, Christian Gaubert, and others! Almost all the numbers have a romping quality that lives up to the "ye ye" promise of the title – but there's also a vibe that's deeper than throwaway pop, as Philippe manages to bring a lot of punch to the tunes without ever losing her cool – as you'll hear on tunes that include "pas De Taxi", "Pour La Gloire", "Plus Rien", "C'Est La Mode", "On M'A Toujours Dit", "Sensational Jeffry", "J'Ai Rate Mon Bac", "Un Petite Croix", "Le Mannequin", "Bonjour Bonsoir Et Au Revoir", and "J'Ai Tant De Peine".

Howard RumseyMusic For Lighthousekeeping – Howard Rumsey's Lighthouse All-Stars Vol 8 ... LP
Contemporary, 1956. Near Mint- ... $4.99
An obscure later entry in the Lighthouse All Stars series on Contemporary – but a great one too – and a set that's less less overflowing with big name players, than a well-conceived small group session! Rumsey's leading the sextet on bass, but other players are even more noteworthy – and include Bob Cooper on tenor sax, Frank Rosolino on trombone, Conte Candoli on trumpet, and Stan Levey on drums – as well as Sonny Clark on piano, making a rare west coast appearance here! The interplay between group members is slightly unusual for the scene at the time – still tightly-crafted, but often with phrasings that don't immediately scream "LA 50s". Titles include "Octavia", "Taxi War Dance", "Love Me Or Levey", "Jubilation", "I Deal", and "Latin For Lovers". LP, Vinyl record album

ScientistScientific Dub ... LP
Clocktower, 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $15.99
Benchmark Scientist dub – great stuff recorded and mixed at King Tubby's near the end of the 70s – and it's some of tightest, heaviest dubs of the period! Scientist works over some of the heftiest Aggrovator sides on this legendary set – one of favorite dub records, period! One particular standout is a great take on the "Drum Song" rhythm – but the whole set is inmpeccable! Other titles include "Taxi To Baltimore Dub", "Satta Dread Dub", "Every Dub Shall Scrub", "East Of Scientist Corner (II Pieces)", "Words Of Dub", "Blacka Shade Of Dub" and "Just Say Dub. . .Who". 10 tracks in all.

Zager & Evans2525 (Exordium Terminus) ... LP
RCA, 1969. Very Good+ ... $8.99
2525 is the lasting classic from the team of Denny Zager & Rick Evans – a pair who might have been more folksy popsingers a few years before, but who stand out here in a compelling blend of groovier modes! The title track to the album's their massive hit – an odd end-of-decade musing on the future – and other tracks here often follow in a similar blend of full orchestrations and tighter rhythms, underneath both solo vocals and chorus trading from the pair. There's a few rootsier moments – almost a country pop influence – and orchestrations are by Bobby Christian. Titles include "In The Year 2525", "I Remember Heide", "Fred", "Cary Lynn Javes", "Less Than Tomorrow", "Fred", "Taxi Man", and "In The Land Of Green". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousMarvellous Boy – Calypso From West Africa ... LP
Honest Jons, Late 40s/1950s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99
An incredible collection from Honest Jons – and like some of the rest of their best, music we never would have heard otherwise! The focus here is on calypso music, but recorded in West Africa – not the usual Caribbean setting – a very unusual strain of styles that cropped up in the fading colonial years of the British Empire – as rhythms were routed southward to Africa, via Caribbean migration to the London scene – making for some really fresh sounds in the end! The work is often much heavier on percussion than its more familiar variant – and other instrumentation includes some great horn parts, and bits of guitar – alongside vocals on most numbers. As usual, the notes are historically helpful and very well done – and titles include "Scrubbs Na Marvellous Boy" and "Poor Freetown Boy" by Famous Scrubbs, "Olubunmi" by Roy Chicago, "Ariwo" by Chris Ajilo & His Cubanos, "Taxi Driver" and "Gentlemen Bobby" by Bobby Benson & His Combo, "Mami" by The Rhythm Aces, "Arria Baby" and "Fire Fire Fire" by Ebenezer Calender & His Maringer Band, "Tree & The Monkey" by ET Mensah, and "Yabomisa Sawale" by Victor Olaiya.

✨✧ Fania All StarsCalifornia Jam ... LP
Fania, 1980. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A cheesy cover, but a killer album from the Fania All-Stars – one that's quite different than most of their other work at the time, with an open-ended jam session feel that really takes us back to the old days! The group here is really just a sextet – the core combo used to launch the group name on Columbia Records – and the session is one that was originally done for Columbia in 1976, when Gene Page had to cancel a studio date, and the band got the chance to jam by themselves in the studio! The result is a groove that's strongly jazzy, with lots of descarga energy – played by a group that features Johnny Pacheco on flute, Papo Lucca on piano, Nicky Marrero on timbales, Ray Barretto on congas, Bobby Valentin on bass, and Roberto Roena on bongos and assorted percussion. Roena sings on one track, but most of the set is instrumental – with nice long cuts that include "The War Gods", "Seis Con El Mismo Sabor", "Vento Conmigo", "Taxi To Aguadilla", and "Guajira Para Los Pollos".

Other tracks include "Taxi", "He Don't Ever Loose His Groove", and "LA Sunshine". LP, Vinyl record album

Mongoloid Breaks, 2019. New Copy 2LP ... Out Of Stock
A reliable ride all the way from Brooklyn's Your Old Droog – carrying on the tradition of classic 90s-hip hop inspired rhymecraft without leaning too hard on any particular influence that's on par with his best work to date! It's the second YOD to be released in just a couple of months and it's good thing he's delivering in such rapid succession, as he's really riding high on the lyricism – sans guests appearances (not including bonus tracks), so it's all him! Mono En Stereo handles the majority of the production and titles include "Stillwell Baby", "Monthly", "Loosey Spot On Wheels", "The Cheese", "My Plane", "SS YOD", "Train Love", "Bikes, Bleeps, Busses", "207" and more – plus the bonus tracks "Taxi" with Quelle Chris and "Vigilantes (Remix)" feat Wiki.

✨✧ Harry ChapinSingles – A's & B's (2CD set) ... CD
Elektra/Wounded Bird, 1970s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
The complete Elektra singles of Harry Chapin – one of the key song-storytellers of the 70s – and an artist whose style paved the way for countless others to come! Harry began in a more folksy way, but was often more personal with his topics – using the first or third person, instead of the more familiar second – ala the "you" in a Leonard Cohen song – and he probably also borrowed a bit from country narrative giants, like Tom T Hall – but found a way to put it all together with some of the more mature singer/songwriter styles of the 70s. Presentation of the tunes is always understated, at a level that helped Chapin get his music across to a surprisingly wide audience – and the set features a total of 30 tracks in all, with titles that include "Taxi", "WOLD", "Empty", "Could You Put Your Light On Please", "Tangled Up Puppet", "Dirt Gets Under The Fingernails", "My Old Lady", "Dance Band On The Titanic", "If You Want To Feel", "My Old Lady", "Dreams Go By", "Sandy", "She Sings Songs Without Words", "Short Stories", and of course, "Cat's Cradle".

BBE (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99 27.99
Beat digging heroes Kon & Amir return with a diverse, funky treasure trove of rare dancefloor anthems, rarer disco soul and African boogie cuts – possibly the best yet in their Off Track series for BBE! The east coast duo have dedicated each title in the series to an NYC borough, and Brooklyn is honored this time out – but there's a world of rare and underground club funk & soul presented here! Includes African disco & soul records with all regions dancefloor appeal, raw percussion and bass accented numbers that are tight and punchy and others with a more soaring approach, all of it totally wonderful and hard-to-find – including some we've seen or heard before! The vinyl version features 2LPs with unmixed tracks, with Kon's selections on 2 sides and Amir's on 2 sides – some featured on the mixed 2CD versions plus alternate tracks! Kon's selections include "Burnin Up" (Kon's edit) by SFB, "From The Heart" (Kon's Multi rmx) by Donny McCuillough, "Rock Don't Stop" by Taxie, "More Power To You" by Mazyck Project, "Lost In Space" by Shake and "EOD" by Edge Of Daybreak.

Astonishing work from Alexis Zoumbas – a Greek musician from the early days of the 78rpm recording, and one who plays violin with the dexterity of Paganini, but in ways that are much more rootsy and fokloric overall! Zoumbas' classic 78s have recently gotten new attention on an excellent compilation – but this set brings together unissued material from the same time – a huge undertaking, given that the recordings are almost 100 years old, but come through with a surprising amount of life here – as Alexis' deft solos on his instrument blend with a bit of percussion, piano, or other instrumentation – depending on the track – all with a timeless vibe that's expanded on nicely in the detailed booklet of notes and photos. Titles include "Selfo", "Arvanitikos", "Skizo Rizo Mor Panaghio", "Epirotiko Moiroloi", "Tsamiko Makedonias", and "Rast Taxim". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousC89 (3CD set) ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), Late 80s. New Copy 3 CDs ... Out Of Stock
The British scene right at the cusp of the big time – tracks from a moment when the always-indie world of the C86 generation was just about to break into much wider territory, including a fair bit of crossover fame on this side of the Atlantic as well! The fuzzy touches of the Creation Records crowd have been more than absorbed by lots of these groups, as have some of the more offbeat rhythms of the avant pop groups on the fringes – and mixed with some of the more electric beats that Manchester acts were bringing to play, especially with a bit of dancefloor play. Yet throughout it all, there's a superior sense of songcraft that really holds these tracks together – plenty of numbers that shoulda been hits, mixed with work by groups who were just about to break through – and peppered throughout by lots of other gems from artists who just never made it that far. As with all the previous volumes in this wonderful series, there's a stunning level of depth to the whole presentation – really documenting this fantastic moment when it seemed that the British scene was able to turn out wonderful records day after day, week after week – most of them from small labels and upcoming artists. The package features a whopping 72 tracks in all – with work by The Ammonites, Pooh Sticks, Bridewell Taxis, The Popguns, Stone Roses, Strawberry Story, New Fast Automatic Daffodils, Red Chair Fadeaway, Korova Milkbar, The La's, Family Cat, Me & Dean Martin, The Church Grims, Men Of Westness, Said Liquidator, Christine's Cat, Kit, The Rain, The Moss Poles, Treebound Story, The Snapdragons, Just Another Sunny Day, The Orchids, The Bardots, Carter The Unstoppable Sex Machine, and Ambitious Beggars.
