Griot GalaxyKins ... LP
Black & White/Third Man, 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99
An overlooked gem from the Detroit scene of the early 80s – played by a group who came after the generation of Tribe and Strata Records, but who went on to have some really slow-burning influence in their own sort of way! The music definitely has echoes of the loft and spiritual jazz scenes of the 70s – but the quintet also really open things up with some of the more flexible rhythms that were coming out of New York during the same period, and working with a slight touch of more ambitious structures – of the sort you might have heard on overseas labels recording American jazz musicians during the 80s. Reeds are at the core of the set – playec by the trio of Faruq Z Bey on tenor and alto, Anthony Holland on alto and soprano, and David McMurray on tenor, alto, soprano, and flute – given very creative energy by Tani Tabbal on drums, and Jaribu Shahid on both acoustic and electric bass. Titles include "Xy-Moch", "Zycron", "Zenelog Aintro", "Androgeny", "Kins", and "Xy Moch". LP, Vinyl record album

Maggot Brain/Third Man, 2021. New Copy ... $8.99 12.00
Maggot Brain has only been around for a handful of issues – but during that time, the publication has evolved tremendously – and become one of our go-to sources for digging into a really wide range of music! This time around, the cover feature spotlights a set of never-seen photos of early 90s indie rock – but there's plenty more on Archie Shepp, Camille Roy, ELO, Endless Boogie, Guerilla Girls, and the duo of Will Sergeant & Bobby Gillespie – all presented with the mixture of strong writing and art! There's plenty more too – even a column by Luc Sante. Magazine

There's lots more too – a very interesting piece that has Terry Riley and Hamid Drake commenting on Don and Moki Cherry, a set of unpublished AC/DC photos from 1977, the duo of guitarists Marisa Anderson and William Tyler, unseen collage art from Jim Jarmusch, an interview with singer/songwriter Tim Rutili, the rebirth of singer Merry Clayton, a cool collection musical artifacts at the Henry Ford Museum, 13 pages from issue #2 of Gary Panter's Jimbo comic, and lots more cool stuff too – the sort of articles that have continued to make Maggot Brain one of the most interesting magazines in recent years!

Ennio Morricone & OthersQuentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Decca/Third Man, 2015. New Copy 2LP ... Just Sold Out!
Director Quentin Tarantino has drawn plenty of inspiration from the music of Ennio Morricone over the years – either using short passages of older Morricone music in his films, or evoking the substance and style of the maestro in the way he uses sounds from other sources too! So it's only fitting that this time around, the pair are finally brought together fully – as Morricone turns out one of his best soundtracks in years for Tarantino's Hateful Eight – a brooding, suspenseful tale that owes plenty to the western generation that first sprung Morricone to global fame! Yet as with most of Ennio's best work, the style here is something that goes far beyond expectation – orchestrations that take on a style completely their own – with instrumental elements that have stronger focus amidst the larger charts, and a sense of mood and color here that's completely sublime. The record is mostly music from Morricone – written for the film – and features a few passages of dialogue from the movie, plus just a few additional tracks by The White Stripes, Roy Orbison, and David Hess. Yet it's more than fair to think of this as a complete score by Morricone – very different than the usual compilation-style soundtracks we've had before from Tarantino. LP, Vinyl record album
(Beautiful pressing – heavy vinyl in a sweet triptych cover!)

Martin SolisMartin Solis & Los Primos ... LP
Third Man, Late 50s/1960s/1970s/1980s. New Copy ... $14.99 18.99
Beautifully blue-tinged work from tejano legend Martin Solis – an artist who never recorded much during his life, but performed constantly for the Mexican community in and around Detroit! Solis both sings and handles the large bajo sexteto – a deep-toned instrument that really invokes a lot of blueness with its tone – which is often echoed by the saxophone work on many of these tracks, more richly sonic than straightly jazzy – nicely balanced with accordion, an instrument which is used in ways that are often a bit more restrained than usual for this type of work. There's a wonderfully melancholy vibe to most of these tracks – and Third Man issued the project from a series of tapes found by Martin's son, finally brought together here to form the first full length Solis album. Titles include "Viva Seguin", "Atonilco", "Sin Ti", "Flor Del Rio", "Dos Palomas", "Amor Brutal", "Las Gaviotas", and "Este Noche Tu Vendras". LP, Vinyl record album

Third Man, 2022. New Copy ... $20.99 24.99
The second Jack White album in a very short span, and a set that seems to bristle with the kind of creative energy that would have allowed such a strong burst of recording! White almost seems reborn of late, but not in a way that's got him stepping far from his roots, or the kind of music that's always made him a favorite on both sides of the fence – and he's working with a lean style that really let's his renewed instensity come through. Titles include "A Tree On Fire From Within", "Taking Me Back Again", "A Tip From You To Me", "All Along The Way", "Help Me Along", "A Madman From Manhattan", "Love Is Selfish", and "I've Got You Surrounded".

Jack WhiteFear Of The Dawn ... LP
Third Man, 2022. New Copy ... $16.99 22.99
Jack White's knack for reinvention comes off as natural as ever on Fear The Dawn – staying connected to the raucous style we know and love via rumbling rhythms, fuzzed out guitars and his distinctive voice – but doing so with spacier textures than we'd have have expected, even after the bugged out Boarding House Reach! Jack has made good use of experimental flourishes and straight forward stompers plenty of times in his career to date, but the way he blends those modes on Fear Of The Dawn stands out in a big way! Includes "Taking Me Back", "Fear Of The Dawn", "Hi-De-Ho" with Q-Tip, "Eosophobia", "Dusk", "What's The Trick?", "Morning, Noon And Night", "Into The Twilight", "Shedding My Velvet" and more.

VariousGive Me My Flowers – Powerhouse Gospel Music From The 50s & 60s On Nashboro Records ... LP
Nashboro/Third Man, 1950s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $16.99
A fantastic collection of postwar gospel recordings from the legendary Nashboro Records – one of the most important imprints for the music back in the 50s and 60s! We rank the work of Nashboro right up with the famous Houston-bred productions of Peacock Records – and as Peacock was part of the secular soul label Duke, Nashboro was also part of the blues powerhouse Excello – which means that the cuts here are put together at a level that's maybe got as much understanding of the needs of the record racks and jukebox scene, as they are aimed at the higher ideals of the lyrics! Nashboro excelled especially in the sorts of small vocal groups that can make gospel singles from this time every bit as much a slice of harmony heavy as rare doo wop tracks – and titles here include "Seven Angels" by The Trumpeteers, "Just One Step" by Little Johnny Jones & The Little Jones Singers, "I Received My Blessing" by Radio Four, "Touch Me Lord Jesus" by Angelic Gospel Singers, "Give Me My Flowers" by The Consolers, "I Would Not Be A Sinner" by Dixie Nightingales, "Jesus Keeps Me Alive" by The Skylarks, "Sit Down Servant" by Swanee Quintet, "When Jesus Stays Home" by Southern Echoes Singers, and "Rest From My Labor" by Supreme Angels. 16 cuts in all – and very nicely done!

Third Man, 1930s/1940s/Early 50s. New Copy ... $10.99 15.00
A really beautiful collection of rare work pulled from a variety of different 78rpm singles – Indian classical music from the generation before Ravi Shankar and a few other artists gave it global exposure – with an especially strong focus on the use of the violin next to sitars and tablas! The violin is amazing – very stretched out and snakey – used maybe with some techniques of European heritage, but with a sonic result that's very very different – and a perfect fit for the rhythms and other instrumentation in the tracks! The collection is very well-done – similar to such projects on labels like Dust-To-Digital or Honest Jons – and titles include "Raga Thodi" by Gajanan Madhav Karnad, "Nagumomu Ganale (parts 1 & 2)" by Muthi & Masni, "Ragamalika Ragam Thanam (parts 1 & 2)" by Dwaram Venkatswamny Naidu, "Ikanaiana Raga Manirang" by Mysor Chowdiah, and the tracks "Raga Adana", "Thumri", "Raga Bageshree", "Raga Ahir Bhairi", and "Raga Sur Malha" by Paritosh Seal – clearly the star of the set! Also features two earlier, pre-classical tracks – "Thodi" and "Ragam Alapana" by Cunniah Naidu. CD

VariousWhy The Mountains Are Black – Primeval Greek Village Music 1907 to 1960 ... LP
Third Man, Late 20s/Early 30s. New Copy 2 LP Gatefold ... $20.99 22.98
It's hard to imagine Greece in the 20th century being described as primeval, but there's definitely a timeless vibe to the music on this collection – all pulled from vintage 78rpm discs that are filled with earthy percussion, exotic reed lines, and some especially nice stringed instrumentation! Most numbers seem to be instrumental, and although the date range in the title is large, the bulk of the recordings here are from the late 20s and early 30s – prime material for the expansion of the 78 market into more regional territories – of the sort that have been documented on similar collections by the Honest Jons or Dust To Digital labels. This collection is an initial foray by the Third Man group, in collaboration with collector Christopher King – who provided all the discs used in the collection – and despite the age and the format, there's a strong sense of clarity throughout – possibly because most of the material was recorded in studios rather than in the field. The set comes with a nice set of notes, a cover illustration by Robert Crumb, and 28 tracks that include "Sousta Rethymniotiki" by G Canteris and G Gombakis, "Ousak Tsiftelli" by Athanasios Lavidas, "Selfos" by Demetrios Jalkias", "Golfo" (Anonymous), "Syrtos Politikos" by Kyr Keravnos, "Kritiki Sousta" by A Karavitas & G Marianos, "Tzarama" by Nikos Karakostas and M Lakkergis, "Platanos" by Athanasios Lavidas, "Mirologi-Epirotiko Makedoniko" by Elias Karathimos, and "Kotta Mou" by Antonios Sakelarou.

✨✧ Kitsos HarisiadisLament In A Deep Style – 1929 to 1931 ... CD
Third Man, Late 20s/Early 30s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Clarinet music, but unlike anything else you might have heard before – as Greek musician Kitsos Harisiadis uses the instrument in a style that's quite far from American jazz and swing! Instead, the clarinet here is used on a series of folkloric tunes – music from the northwestern region of Greece, where Kitsos lived in the 20s – preserved here on vintage 78rpm recordings that are filled with rich tone and echo – audio that seems to transform the clarinet even more, as the instrument is set amidst spare percussion or stringed instrument backing – to soar out into space with a very melancholy vibe! Harisiadis is incredibly deft – running up and down the instrument with the speed and creativity of a free jazz musician, but always keeping things melodic, even when emotionally moving. Titles include "Zagorisio", "Dipli Gaida", "Skaros", "Mirologi In Do", "Stroto Pogonisio", "Miarologi Arvanitiko", and "Gaida". CD

Maggot Brain/Third Man, 2021. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The great Maggot Brain keeps on growing and growing – really reaching mind-expanding territory this special seventh issue, at a level that goes far beyond the large features on Lou Reed and Loaded pictured on the cover! There's a wealth of different shorter features, mixed with artwork and other articles too – bits on Lee Scratch Perry, Pastor TL Barrett, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Dane Wareham, The Goats, and the late 80s underground noise scene around Detroit – plus an especially strange feature on Doug Henning and his relationship to glam rock in Canada! As always, its less the topics than the way they're handled that makes the magazine so great – and Maggot Brain is definitely one of those publications that really rewards a cover-to-cover read – like the old classics Grand Royal, Wax Poetics, or even Motorbooty.

Third Man, 2014. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
The most stylistically sprawling record yet from Jack White! White's trajectory from Detroit garage-blues-punk wunderkind to Nashville record biz provocateur/label magnate is pretty damn impressive – and he really lets his far-reaching impulses fly on Lazzaretto. Unpredictable twists and turns abound, bu t it's all held together by an undercurrent of pummeling, unpretentious rock and roll, with a rootsy swagger. Ever upping the ante on hella cool vinyl releases, Lazarretto is a 3-speed "Ultra LP" – with a 33 1/3 main track list, and 2 hidden tracks beneath the center labels, one that plays at 45 and one that plays at 78. Oh, and also a hologram visual effect. We're thinking that maybe his next record will summon a genie that grants you 3 wishes. Titles include "Three Women", "Lazaretto", "Temoprary Ground", "Would You Fight For My Love?", "High Ball Stepper", "Just One Drink", "Alone In My Home", That Black Bat Licorice", "Entitlement", "I Think I Found The Culprit" and "Want And Able".

A fantastic document of the first-ever Ann Arbor Blues Festival – the start of a great event that would blossom into other styles of music in the 70s, but which stood as a strong blues-based event in its initial year of 1969! In some ways, the three day series of concerts is a roots answer to Woodstock – which took place just a few weeks before – as the festival featured a great scope of blues talents, from the rootsier sort of artists who were recording for labels like Folkways or Arhoolie, to some of the sharper modern talents rising to the top on Chess or Delmark! The package alone is almost worth the price of admission – beautiful photographs of the event, detailed notes, and the first-ever release of this music – which has sat in the vaults for decades, finally to see the light of day. Titles include "Dirty Mother For You" by Roosevelt Sykes, "So Glad You're Mine" by Arthur Big Boy Crudup, "Everybody Must Suffer/Stone Crazy" by Luther Allison & The Blue Nebulae, "Help Me" by Junior Wells, "I Wonder Why" by Jimmy Dawkins, "Too Much Alcohol" by JB Hutto & His Hawks, "So Many Roads So Many Trains" by Otis Rush, "Long Distance Call" by Muddy Waters, "Off The Wall" by James Cotton Band, "Juanita" by Big Joe Williams, "Jelly Jelly Blues" by Shirley Griffin, "I Feel So Good" by Magic Sam, "Call It Stormy Monday" by T-Bone Walker, "Death Letter Blues" by Son House, "Key To The Highway" by Sam Lay, and "Mojo Hand" by Lightnin Hopkins.

This set definitely falls into that category – as it not only features the group working through a searing live reading of Funhouse, it also marks that final performance by the original lineup of the group – Iggy Pop on vocals, Ron Asheton on guitar, Dave Alexander on bass, and Scott Asheton on drums – plus a bit of sax work from Steve Mackay, who's sometimes buried in the frenzy of the guitar! The recording was taken directly from the board, and restored in 1979 – and is presented here as a stunning document of this frenzied group in all their glory.

The Band's surprising step back to their roadhouse roots – paying homage to early rock and rhythm & blues the grew up on, and honed their chops on when in their years as The Hawks! Moondog Matinee features a few great covers that split the difference between the raucous energy of their inspirations, from Chuck Berry to Clarence Frogman Henry to Fats Domino to Junior Parker – and the well-oiled, multi-voice Band groove at near-peak form. Titles include "I Ain't Got No Home", "Holy Cow", "Share Your Thoughts", "Mystery Train", "Third Man Theme", "Promised Land", "The Great Pretender", "I'm Ready", "Saved" and "A Change Is Gonna Come".

Julian BertJulian Bert & His Beat (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Orfeon (Mexico), 1966. Used ... $9.99 12.99
A great little set from pianist Julian Bert – with some mod Latin jazzy takes on a few famous tunes, and some really sweet originals – his beat sure is groovy! Venezuelan Bert cut this record in Mexico in the mid 60s – blend of styles that has the best kind of informal, for fun feel to it. He's often in pared down combo mode of piano, drums & percussion, bass and a small horn section – with having a lot of fun with a cheeky mod grooves, and sweeter moments with strings and piano. Titles include the opener "Hey Lupe", a groovy riff on "Hang On Sloopy", plus "Jazz Ber't A Go Go", "Sabor A Miel", "El Tercer Hombre" (a take on the " Third Man Theme"), "El Clan", "Seguir Sonando", "Hoyo En La Pared", "L:anza Tus Penas Al Viento" and more!

Miles Davis with John Coltrane & Sonny StittIn Stockholm 1960 Complete (4CD set) ... CD
Dragon (Sweden), 1960/1985. Used 4 CDs ... $19.99
The complete recordings of a legendary live cycle of shows in Stockholm from 1960 – material that was previously issued on two different 2LP sets during the album era, now brought together here with bonus tracks too! The first third of the set features incredible work from the team of Miles Davis and John Coltrane – working together in space that's very open, and far more exploratory than their studio work of the late 50s – maybe at a level that really shows the impact that Coltrane's growth was having on the solo approach of Davis! The key rhythm trio keeps things swinging – Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Jimmy Cobb on drums – which almost seems to allow the horn players even more freedom. The second two thirds of the set are equally striking, but in a very different way – as they feature the great Sonny Stitt, blowing both alto and tenor with Miles' group – a choice that's maybe a bit surprising, but equally wonderful too – a Stitt brings the sound maybe back to a bop core, but also seems to really get a chance to show off some of those modern currents that he had to soft-pedal on his albums for Roost. Titles with Coltrane include "So What", "On Green Dolphin Street", "All Blues/Theme", "Walkin/Theme", and "Fran Dance" – and titles with Stitt include "Autumn Leaves/Theme", "Walkin", "All Of You", "June Night", "Stardust", "Lover Man", "If I Were A Bell", "No Blues/Theme", "Softly As In A Mornin Sunrise", and "So What".

DelfonicsDelfonics/Tell Me This Is A Dream ... CD
Philly Groove/Kent (UK), 1970/1972. New Copy ... $9.99 18.99
Sublime soul through and through – 2 classics from The Delfonics, back to back on a single CD! First up is self-titled record The Delfonics – the third album in an amazing early run from The Delfonics – the kind of work that set a whole new standard for group soul in the 70s! A number of the tracks here had already risen to fame before the album's release as singles – and these are mixed with some additional tracks that are woven together in a near-perfect symphony of sound! The mighty Thom Bell arranged most of the numbers here – save for 2 by Anthony Dorsey – and the group's heavenly harmonies are in amazing form on both mellow ballads and a few more righteous numbers. Titles include "Didn't I Blow Your Mind This Time", "Funny Feeling", "Over & Over", "Baby I Love You", "When You Get Right Down To It", "Delfonics Theme", "Trying To Make A Fool Of Me", "I Gave To You", "Down Is Up Up Is Down", and "Think About Me". Tell Me This Is A Dream has The Delfonics just getting better and better! The longer the group recorded, the more they picked up this strange spacey quality that pushed them past some of their contemporaries of the early 70s. And on an album like this, they prove that they're way more than just Thom Bell puppets by showing that they have a rich talent for a wide variety of complicated arrangements that really push the vocal group sound of the 70s. They take many stylistic risks, coming up with really sinister new harmonies, and always managing to stay clear of the cliches that buried some of their mates on the charts. Bell still arranges some of the material, but the record also features work by Norman Harris and Caldwell MacMillan, who did the real genius work on the record. This masterpiece includes the sublime "Hey, Love", plus "Walk Right Up to the Sun", "I'm A Man", "Too Late", "Love You Till I Die", "Looking for a Girl", and "Round & Round". CD

Eric DolphyVintage Dolphy ... CD
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1962/1963. New Copy ... $16.99
Some of the most striking Eric Dolphy work we've ever heard – a set of live performances from the years 1962 and 1963 that feature Dolphy in a free-thinking mode that surpasses even the modernism of his classic studio sides! The recordings feature Dolphy amidst a variety of players – including a number of unlikely suspects like Barry Galbraith, Eddie Costa, and Jim Hall – and although some of the tracks have a moody and introspective third stream quality (3 of the numbers are written by Gunther Schuller), others are quite open, and almost have an ESP-like intensity. One longer title is a jam session take on Charlie Parker's "Donna Lee" – recorded with a lineup that includes Phil Woods, Nick Travis, Benny Golson, Don Ellis, and Lalo Schifrin! Other titles include "Iron Man", "Half Note Triplets", "Densities", and "Night Music". CD

GypsyGypsy (tan vinyl pressing) ... LP
Metromedia/Sundazed, 1970. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $32.99 34.99
The fantastic debut of Gypsy – a group who blend wonderful harmonies with really well-crafted inspiration – very much in the jazz-inspired jamming of some of the headier California groups, like Spirit or Santana at their best! The group use a swirling blend of organ and guitar next to their really beautiful vocals – warm and sweet at some of the best moments, but never in a way that ever feels like soft rock – given the intensity of the instrumentation! The album was issued on the Metromedia label, and never got the attention it would have deserved had it hit the racks from a company like Columbia or Warner – but it's every bit as great as some of their giants from the time, with titles that include "Last December", "Man Of Reason", "Third Eye", "Tomorrow Is The Last To Be Heard", "Here In My Loneliness", "Dead & Gone", "Dream If You Can", "Decisions", and "Gypsy Queen".

Waylon JenningsWaylon/Just To Satisfy You/Country Folk With The Kimberlys ... CD
RCA/Morello (UK), 1969/1970. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99 24.99
A trio of pre-stardom albums from Waylon Jennings – brought together here in a single set! First up is Just To Satisfy You – fantastic early work from Waylon Jennings – exactly the kind of record that shows how the singer could burst out of the pack, even in a familiar setting! There's still a lot of Chet Atkins elements in the production, but Waylon really pushes all that aside with his upfront, honest vocal approach – so much so that even hits by others are completely transformed in his style! Titles include "Farewell Party", "Sing The Blues To Daddy", "Straighten My Mind", "Just To Satisfy You", and "Lonely Weekends" – plus duets with Anita Carter on "I Got You" and "Rings Of Gold". Next up is Country Folk – one of the most unusual albums ever recorded during the early RCA years of Waylon Jennings – a set that features backing vocals from the male/female quartet The Kimberlys – of the sort that you might have heard from the Anita Kerr Singers on a Chet Akins production – but tuned much more towards a style that suits Waylon well! There's none of the too-sweet modes that Kerr might bring into the mix – and there's also occasional female leads that appear for a bit, creating a sense of duet with that magnificent Jennings voice – further deepened by the great choice of material, too – really unusual tracks that aren't the sort that RCA was usually adding to country sessions at the time. Titles include Jimmy Webb's immortal "MacArthur Park", plus "These New Changing Times", "Come Stay With Me", "Cindy Oh Cindy", "Games People Play", "Mary Ann Regrets", "Let Me Tell You My Mind", "Long Way Back Home", and "A World Of Our Own". Last up is Waylon – pivotal work from Waylon Jennings – a record that has him really starting to show the maturity and individuality that would make his mid 70s hits so great! Production here isn't that different than before – Chet Atkins and Danny Davis are still at the helm in the studio – but Waylon himself has really blossomed, and gone from being just an already-great country singer to a mature male interpreter of tunes – able to bring his own spin to material from an array of well-chosen sources. Anita Carter duets with Waylon on two tracks – and titles include "Brown Eyed Handsome Man", "Don't Play The Game", "The Thirty Third Of August", "Yellow Haired Woman", "This Time Tomorrow (I'll Be Gone)", "Where Love Has Died", "I May Never Pass This Way Again", and "Just Across The Way".

Raw, sweet, deadpan pop songs about summer mornings, the ice cream man, rollercoasters, and cars from the strangely whimsical Jonathan Richman! This is Jonathan's third album for Beserkely (and the second to come out in early '77) – and the true beginning of the second phase of his career, which cast him as an oddball manchild who rattled out weird, three chord tunes about whatever seemed to be going through his development-arrested mind at the time. It's all still very sweet, very catchy, and all about acoustic stream of consciousness cuteness. This was all still very amazing in the mid 70s – well before tongue-in-cheek hipsters like the Violent Femmes used Richmond-esque quirkiness as pure gimmickery. It may a notch below his previous couple of classic albums – but Rock And Roll is still a gem!

Contemporary, 1985. Near Mint- ... $16.99
A great date from the later revival years of altoist Frank Morgan – thanks to a warm performance from the Cedar Walton trio! One of the great things about late Morgan is the way in which he's able to really fit himself into different settings – still holding onto his soulful roots, but also fluidly picking up the best elements of the groups he works with – such as the rich tones and soaring styles that Walton brings to this session! Cedar's piano always sounds great with a horn, and the warmth in Morgan's alto is quite a different match than some of Walton's tenor-driven sessions – and bassist Tony Dumas and drummer Billy Higgins keep things in just the right subtle side of the spectrum to fit the mood. Titles include "The Rubber Man", "Yes & No", "Manha De Carnaval", "Now's The Time", "Three Flowers", and "Third Street Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

Ace (UK), 1967. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99 22.99
Fantastic sounds from 1967 – a year in which mainstream music saw plenty of heady changes – as you might guess from the title! The set's a wonderful follow-up to the 1966 set by Jon Savage – and like that one, it features a superb selection of tracks from this important year – served up in all the different strands and styles that were popping into place – soul, early funk, psych, hard rock, and lots more – in a blistering array of songs that steps beautifully between well-known classics and underground gems! The feel of the set is way different than the usual oldies package with a date on the front – as Jon Savage dedicated the whole thing to the groundbreaking mix of music he enjoyed from pirate radio at the time – and included his own fantastic writing in the notes to help explain what makes the music so great. Titles include "You Keep Running Away" by The Four Tops, "Lazy Life" by William E, "At The Third Stroke" by The Picadilly Line, "Try It" by The Attack, "I'm A Man" by Spencer Davis Group, "Western Union" by The Searchers, "So You Say You Lost Your Baby" by Gene Clark, "Feelin Reelin Squeelin" by Soft Machine, "So Sharp" by Dyke & The Blazers, "Mr Soul" by Buffalo Springfield, "Vacuum Cleaner" by Tintern Abbey, "Garden Of My Mind" by The Mickey Finn, "Love Power" by The Sandpebbles, "Look At Me I'm You" by The Blossom Toes, and "Psyche Rock" by Les Yper Sound. 48 tracks in all!

A crazy collection of singles from the pre-hippie years of the beatnik – that cool cat who loved jazz, read poetry, and dug the scene with plenty of attitude! That attitude is the main focus of most of the cuts here – obscure tracks from the late 50s and early 60s that poke fun at the heady thoughts and easy intellectualism of the beat scene – presented in a range of different styles that really run the gamut – from jazz, to rock, to many other genres in between – including a fair bit of offbeat spoken word and instrumental records too! The vibe here follows nicely in the other Lux & Ivy collections on the Righteous label – full of weird and wild records we never would have discovered otherwise – with cuts that include "Dog" by Bob Dorough, "Laffin Beatnik" by Johnny Beeman, "Reaching Into In" by Ken Nordine, "No Pictures Please" by Rod McKuen, "Manhattan Fable" by Babs Gonzales, "Pimples & Braces" by Spike Jones & The City Slickers, "Teenage Beatnik" by Louis Nye, "A Beatnik Story" by The Expressos, "Meet The Bongo Man" by Johnny O, and "William Butler Yeats On The Third Avenue El" by Lawrence Ferlinghetti.

A smoking soul show from Music City Records – the third great volume in this vinyl-only series – and filled with as much rare work as the previous two collections! Apart from one obscure track by Darondo, most of the artists here are totally obscure – East Bay unknowns from the 70s, working here in a Numero-like mix of funk and soul modes that are surprisingly strong – proof that there was so much going on in local scenes like this at the time, we've still got plenty to discover! The work here is still plenty darn funky, but also has a bit more of a straighter soul vibe than the previous collections – with really wonderful vocals, especially from some of the harmony groups – although the solo singers are pretty sweet too. Titles include "Time Flies" by Benida Madison, "Children Need Our Love" by The New Generations", "A Man That Is Not Free" by The Soul Sensations, "You Could Have Tried" by Karen Sanders Group, "Silly Song (early version)" by Two Things In One, "Girl I Tried" by The Performers, "Loving You Isn't Enough (KDIA spot)" by The Ballads, "Gimme Some (version 1)" by Darondo, and "Girl I'd Like To See You" by William Bostic.

A pair of later albums from the Heptones – back to back in a single set, with a heck of a lot of bonus material too! First up is Better Days – a late 70s set that has the Heptones' using their soul-styled vocals in a mode that's maybe got a bit more of a roots-oriented approach than before – working with Niney The Observer, who gives the whole set a laidback vibe that really lets the harmonies flow! The approach is a nice bridge between reggae generations, and a strong way to update the group's early style – on titles that include "Mr Do Over Man Song", "God Bless The Children", "Suspicious Minds", "Crystal Blue Persuasion", "Better Days", "No Bread On My Table", and "Key To The Heart". King Of My Town is a great step forward for The Heptones – one that has them really sparkling in a more modern reggae stetting, handled by Niney The Observer – who has a great way of serving up gentle grooves that never overwhelm the vocal interplay of the group! Tunes have more righteous subject matter than before, and titles include "Holy Mount Zion", "King Of My Town", "African Child", "Trials & Tribulations", "Which Side Are You", "Behold", and "Prisoner Girl". 2CD set also features the full rare album Observation Of Life Dub – by Page One & The Observers – plus disco mixes of tunes that include "Losing You", "Holy Mount Zion", "Crystal Blue Persuasion", "Book Of Rules", "Move On", and "Through The Fire I Come".

Part of the genius here is the great Charles Stepney – that hip Chicago arranger who did so many wonderful things in the Chess/Cadet Records studios at the end of the 60s – which he definitely does here, as the gritty blues of Muddy Waters is mixed with a righteous current of 70s funky – with added guitar from Phil Upchurch and Pete Cosey, bass from Louis Satterfield, and organ from Stepney himself! The vibe is similar to the best funk blues sessions on Chess at the time by Bo Diddley and Etta James – and titles include "I'm A Man", "I Just Want To Make Love to You", "Hoochie Coochie Man", "Same Thing", "She's All Right", and "Tom Cat".

The genius of Roy Ayers knows no end – and as this set of unreleased work from the 70s proves, Roy was always working at top form back in the day – even above and beyond his classic albums from the time! The grooves here are tremendous – funky, soulful, jazzy, and every bit as wonderful as the work that Roy did for his classic albums on Polydor – and in a way, the whole set's even tighter and heavier than any of Roy's full LPs, because it's a distillation of his sound from the time, hand-picked from the vaults with an ear towards the kind of timeless grooves that have been a huge influence on many worlds of music for years! You've never heard any of these tunes before, but we can promise you'll love them every bit as much as Roy's tracks on albums like Coffy, Vibrations, Mystic Voyage, and other classics – and the quality of the set only further pushes our jaw-dropping respect for the man!

Things are funky, but pretty darn dubby too – and the whole thing's got a sly sound that others have tried to copy over the years – but never done this well at all. Titles include the monster funk cut "Brothers On the Slide", a jaunty sample-laden groover – plus "Pon De Dungle", "Changes", "Sheshamani", and "Leavert". LP, Vinyl record album

Hans Dulfer & Ritmo NaturalMorning After The Third (180 gram yellow vinyl pressing) ... LP
Catfish/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99 26.99
A wicked little set of tripped-out funky jazz – recorded by Dutch sax legend Hans Dulfer, at a time when he was really expanding his head! The album has Hans on tenor – blowing with a group that includes a young Jan Akkerman on guitar, and lots of Latin percussion – all served up at a level that mixes some of the modern currents of the Dutch jazz scene of the 60s, with some of the headier modes that were opening up all over the continent – yet not in a style that's proggish at all, as Dulfer keeps a nice groove on the record throughout! The approach is a bit like some of the 60s Latin jazz experiments that Klaus Doldinger was doing – but with more guitar and percussion, and a wilder vibe overall. Titles include "Senor Steve", "The Morning After The Third", "Green Mountain", and "Dit Is Het Begin". LP, Vinyl record album

Elektra (UK), 1968. Very Good+ ... $74.99
The Incredible String Band are paired down to the core duo of Mike Heron & Robin Williamson for their third and possibly best album – the truly incredible Hangman's Beautiful Daughter – using the studio as a most impressive adjunct member of the group at this point! This is an extremely talented pair – each playing myriad instruments – sitar, organ, guitar, hammer dulcimer, harpsichord, gimbri, whistle, pipe, oud, mandolin, mouth harps and more. Previous vocal collaborator Licorice sings on one song, and Dolly Collins and David Snell contribute flute organ, piano and harp – but the main duos incredible way of layering their magic with multitracking in the studio the real masterstroke of the effort. Titles include "Koeoaddi There", "Witch's Hat", "The Water Song", "Swift As The Wind", "Nightfall", "Waltz Of The New Moon", "Three Is A Green Crown" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Gato BarbieriThird World ... LP
Flying Dutchman, 1969. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the hippest albums Gato Barbieri ever cut – and a key link between his late 60s avant work with Don Cherry, and his Latin-tinged albums of the 70s! The album features Barbieri working with a New York group of avant players – including Beaver Harris on drums, Roswell Rudd on trombone, and Charlie Haden on bass – but the sound is a bit more focused and forward-moving than you might expect, thanks to a strong sense of rhythm on the date. Lonnie Liston Smith plays piano and Richard Landrum handles conga and percussion to give the set a slightly Latin flavor – and the overall sound is not that dissimilar from some of Pharoah Sanders' albums at the same time on Impulse. Barbieri's tone is fantastic – and the spiralling piano work by Smith really gives the album a lofty spiritual tone – on titles that include "Zelao", "Cancion Del Llamero", "Haleo & The Wild Rose", and "Antonio Das Mortes".

A lesser-known set from groundbreaking drummer Steve Reid – issued on his Mustevic Sound label after the classic Rhythmatism and Nova sets! Reid's playing here with the New Life trio – a group that features his drum work next to the guitar of Brandon Ross and heavy bass of David Wertman – who'd done some great work of his own for the same label. The tunes have a very rhythmic pulse – especially the bass and drum work – and the guitar seems to move around the top of the tunes, almost of its own accord.

Michael Cosmic/Phill Musra Group/World's Experience OrchestraPeace In The World/Creator Spaces/The Prayer (3CD set) ... CD
Cosmic/Now Again, 1974. New Copy 3CD ... $9.99 20.98
An amazing package – a pair of rare avant jazz albums, presented here together! The first album is Peace In The World – maybe the only album issued under the name of Michael Cosmic – but a set that's part of a key legacy with his brother, reedman Phill Musra! The set has Cosmic in very heady territory – sounds that come from his young tenure in the AACM, his brief time with Cecil Taylor, and his budding reputation on the 70s Boston scene – where the set was recorded, and almost stands as a precursor to the rich legacy of improvisational jazz that would emerge on the New England scene for decades to come! Tracks are long and very free, but have spiritual currents too – and Cosmic is mostly on piano, with Musra on soprano sax and tenor, Leonard Brown on soprano and tenor, John Jamyll Jones on bass, Huseyin Ertunc on drums, and Eric Jackson on percussion. Titles include "We Love You Malcolm X", "Peace In The World", "Sapce On Space", and "Arabia". Next is the related album Creator Spaces, by Phill Musra – recorded at the time when he was part of the very underground Boston avant scene – a world that had a slightly different vibe than music coming from Chicago, Detroit, or New York! The album's got a spiritual avant bent – soulful at the core, with lots of references to outer space as well – and an approach that feels a lot like a classic Saturn Records session by Sun Ra, both in sound and spirit! Musra plays reeds, chimes, and percussion – and the group features some incredible sax work by Michael Cosmic, who also plays a bit of organ, again in a tripped-out, Ra-type way. Huseyin Ertunc plays percussion – very free and loose, in ways that are a great balance to the more angular lines of the reeds – and tracks include "The Creator Is So Far Out", "The Creator Spaces", "Egypt", and "Arabia". Also features unreleased tracks "The Creator Is So Far Out (unreleased version)" and "Phyllis". Added to the set is a really special bonus third CD – an unreleased long live performance of "The Prayer" by Worlds Experience Orchestra – a group from the same scene at the time – with Shaddu Jones on piano, Stan Strickland on tenor and soprano, Frank Peterson on alto, John Jamyll Jones on bass, Robert Ruff on cello, Larry Lerner on drums, and John Klein on amplified violin.

Miles DavisThat's What Happened 1982 to 1985 – Bootleg Series Vol 7 (3CD set) ... CD
Sony, Early 80s. New Copy 3CD ... $28.99 29.99
A great look at the fresh energy that Miles Davis was bringing to his music in the 80s – and a set that's nicely different than some of the other albums issued in the "bootleg" series – in that two thirds of the collection features unissued studio material from the dates in the title! Those tracks are great – numbers that were recorded in the same sessions that gave the world the records Decoy, Star People, and You're Under Arrest – with work from players who include John Scofield and Mike Stern on guitars, Robert Irving III on keyboards, Bill Evans on tenor and soprano saxes, and the great Al Foster on drums. Miles even plays a bit of keyboards himself, but is also really focusing strong energy on his trumpet lines – more tightness than some of his 70s material, but not in a way that's slick or commercial either – still plenty of bite throughout. Studio titles include "Celestial Blues", "Minor Ninths", "Santana", "Freaky Deaky", "Hopscotch", "Never Loved Like This", and some alternates of Miles' versions of "Human Nature" and "Time After Time". The third component of the set is the Montreal 7/7/83 performance – early 80s live work from Miles Davis – done at a level that's a nice change from some of his studio work of the time! If you've ever heard Miles in a live setting like this from the decade, you know that such recordings are a great reminder of the way he can really deliver an extended solo with plenty of spirit and imagination – stretching out here on long tracks with a group that also features lots of great work from John Scofield on guitar, and up and coming saxophonist Bill Evans – who plays soprano, tenor, and flute! Miles also plays a bit of keyboards, and the rest of the group features Darryl Jones on bass, Al Foster on drums, and Mino Cinelu on percussion – on titles that include "Star On Cicely", "Hopscotch", "What It Is", "It Gets Better", "Speak", "Code 3", "Jean Pierre", "Star People", and "Creepin In".

Craft, 1966. New Copy ... $26.99 29.99
The third soundtrack that Vince Guaraldi did for The Peanuts TV specials – and maybe the best so far! There's a depth to the music that's wonderful – as Vince's combo works alongside some occasional larger orchestrations by John Scott Trotter, which are still arranged by Guaraldi – and the core combo adds in the guitar of John Gray, trumpet of Emanuel Klein, and sax and flute of Ronald Lang – the last of which is a particularly expressive sound on the record! The whole thing's worth it alone for "The Great Pumpkin Waltz" – which captures that perfect mix of melancholy and groove that was Guaraldi at his best – and the set also features maybe the best version ever of "Linus & Lucy", thanks to some flute – plus "Trick Or Treat", "Breathless", "Graveyard Theme", "Snoopy & The Leaf/Freida", and "The Charlie Brown Theme".

Raw crackling hip hop funk beatcraft at its deepest from mighty Madlib – working in his Beat Konducta style for this third entry in the epic Madlib's Medicine Show Series! Beat Konducta In Africa is a hazy hip hop instrumental set from 'Lib (lest you thought it might be a funky compilation of rare African material) with some additional mixing from J Rocc – based on rare African vinyl. The sound is pure Madlib/Beat Konducta heady hip hop funk – recognizable as being spun from and inspired by African material, and impeccably so, with that instantly identifiable, exploratory Madlib sonic stamp. He looks far beyond Afrobeat and funk sources, with some raw funk rock beats, psych, garage and more with some trippy vocal samples – and he's building up from blueprints records originally pressed all over Africa – Zambia, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Ghana, Botswana and Ivory Coast. But too much mention of the source material risks making this sound like a compilation or a mix set, when it's Madlib all the way! Titles include "Motherland", "Raw Introduction To Afreaka", "Warrior's Theme", "Street Hustler", "Afritonic" (Pts 1 & 2), "Tradition", "Blackfire", "Obtaive", "Mtima", "African Bounce", "Freedom Play", "Natural Sound Waves", "Unika (Outro)" and many more. 37 tracks on the vinyl version.

GAD (Poland), Late 60s. New Copy ... $19.99 22.99
The depths of Jerzy Milian's talents seem endless with records like this – far more so than we ever would have guessed from the handful of commercial albums the famous Polish jazz vibist released in the 60s and 70s! As with so many other talents on his scene, chances to issue records were often few and far between – but that doesn't mean that Milian kept his talents in check, and instead was growing in all sorts of incredible ways that could hardly be contained on an album! This set brings together a number of late 60s work by Jerzy – some as scores for films, some larger ensemble pieces – all recorded away from Poland, in Brussels – where Milian was able to work with some extremely responsive modern musicians. Two thirds of the set feature a larger group directed by Etienne Verschueren, the last section some smaller combo material with Freddy Sunder – and throughout, the music is full of life, tone, color, and a very special magic that's very different than any sort of conventional record you'd ever hear from a standard vibes player. Titles include "Woman I Need", "Beat Obsession", "Optima Fide", "My Favourite Band", "Boyfriend Or Girlfriend", "Four Engravings", and "Realities". CD

The third album from the mighty Rose Royce – working here in perfect hit formation – with older styles of harmony soul wrapped around some of the best late 70s mainstream funk modes – all produced to perfection by the mighty Norman Whitfield! Whitfield's guidance of the group is maybe even stronger here than in the group's Motown years – as he balances funky and righteous elements with some sublime mellow soul moments – most especially here on the classic "Love Don't Live Here Anymore" – one of the group's standout cuts, and a masterpiece of spacey soul that still shocks us today with its greatness. Other tracks include "I'm In Love", "That's What's Wrong With Me", "Let Me Be The First To Know", and "First Come, First Serve". LP, Vinyl record album

Arguably one of the greatest pop albums of all time – a pure act of genius from Todd Rundgren, and one of the few cases in rock music where two records are actually better than one! The double-length set was Rundgren's third solo effort after the breakup of Nazz – but it's a broad step ahead from the first two, and a strong move into the kind of near-perfect, yet always-human pop that made Rundgren so great in the 70s. Sides one through three of the album were completely done by Todd himself – all instruments, voices, and production handled through the then-new magic of the 16 track studio – and Rundgren's really at his best here, working in the kind of personal modes that make his tunes so great, some of the best of the mainstream singer/songwriter generation. Side four has fuller arrangements and other players coming into the mix, but the core feel of the rest of the record is very nicely preserved – apart from a few tunes that perhaps get a bit too goofy. It's hard to imagine more great pop songs in one album – and the set's overflowing with genius moments that include "Marlene", "I Saw The Light", "I Wouldn't Have Made Any Difference", "It Takes Two To Tango", "Sweeter Memories", "I Went To The Mirror", "One More Day", "Song Of The Viking", and "Hello It's Me".

One of the coolest sets the Numero Group has ever released – and that's saying a heck of a lot, given their already-mighty catalog! Although the label issued a previous dip into the enigmatic Boddie Recording company of Cleveland, this massive package brings together a whopping 57 tracks from the Boddie studios and related labels – many of which have never been reissued before, even by Numero – and all of which offer up a mindblowing microcosm of the American scene in the 60s and 70s – a wealth of rare funk, soul, psych, gospel, and more – all of it the kind of gritty material that 45 collectors die for! But just as cool as the music is the box itself – a slipcover that fits around a hardcover book, which contains individual pockets with CDs that focus on the core labels from Boddie – then other pull outs that include a big booklet on the studios, another on the artists, and a third set of bonus inserts! Musically, the whole thing's right on par with other Numero releases – maybe even above them, given the wide range and depth of the collection – and artists include Bo & The Metros, Inter Circle, King James Version, Ricky Hodges, Jackie Russell, Angela Alexander, Frankie Pighee, Chantells, AC Jones, Harvey Hall, Headlines, Modern Detergents, Penny North, JC Akins, Little Anthony Mitchell, Gospel Fabulators, Royal Kings, Corinthian Singers, Brother Bill, Victory 5, and many more.

Cherry Red (UK), 1988. New Copy 3CD ... $24.99 30.99
The third great volume in this wonderful series that looks at the huge explosion of British indie rock in the mid 80s – and a collection that maybe compiles tracks from the last great year of the scene! Not that British music stopped dead in its tracks – but the following year saw dance/house come in from surprising corners, and many groups either hit big commercial fame, or step sideways into other modes – which maybe made 1988 the last great year for guitar-driven, sharply-penned tracks like these! As with other projects of this nature from Cherry Red, the presentation is wonderful – loads of tracks in a 5" square box, with a big bonus book of notes too – all delivering a lot of greatness in a tiny package. The set features 71 tracks in all – and titles include "The Camera Loves Me" by Would Be Goods, "Clear" by Whirl, "On Tape" by the Pooh Sticks, "Lies" by Bridewell Taxis, "One Summer" by Moss Poles, "Tattered Tangled & Torn" by Bradford, "Creamation Town" by The Poppyheads, "High" by Choo Choo Train, "Elephant Stone (7" version)" by The Stone Roses, "Mary's Garden" by Mock Turtles, "Ballad Of Jet Harris" by Apple Boutique, "Heaven Knows" by The Flatmates, "They Fell For Words Like Love" by Hangman's Beautiful Daughters, "Prize" by Kitchens Of Distinction, "Shame On You" by The Darling Buds, "Dying For It" by The Vaselines, "Curry Crazy" by Bad Dream Fancy Dress, "Glastonbury" by Rodney Allen, "Shake" by The Corn Dollies, "Cubans In The Bluefields" by East Village, "Who Works The Weather" by The Great Leap Forward, and "Sun Sea Sand" by The Revolving Paint Dream.

A great range of fantastic jazzy cuts – all of them upbeat and funky enough to warrant the "dance" in the title – and served up here in modes that are way more than jazz fusion too! The set's the third in this great series by DJ Colin Curtis – and it may be the deepest dig so far – an assortment of cuts not just from the glory days of vinyl, but also from more recent decades – the sorts of tracks that were issued during the CD generation, but often overlooked by most diggers because of their vinyl-centric antics! Curtis has no rules when it comes to pursuing a groove – and the mix of styles here is great – with different currents of spiritual, Latin, and hardbop along the way. The set features the first-time vinyl appearance of many tracks – and titles on volume one include "Island Dance" by Idris Ackamoor, "Descarga Del Mundo" by Andrea Brachfeld", "Oyelo Sonar" by Bellita & Jazz Tumbata, "Extinction" by Joshua Jaswon, "Yatra Ta" by Martin Johnson B3, "Reencuentro" by Jane Bunnett & Maquque, "Wanting Touch" by Juju, "Bellita's Pilon" by Bellita & Jazztumbata, and "La Fiesta" by GeeW.

A great range of fantastic jazzy cuts – all of them upbeat and funky enough to warrant the "dance" in the title – and served up here in modes that are way more than jazz fusion too! The set's the third in this great series by DJ Colin Curtis – and it may be the deepest dig so far – an assortment of cuts not just from the glory days of vinyl, but also from more recent decades – the sorts of tracks that were issued during the CD generation, but often overlooked by most diggers because of their vinyl-centric antics! Curtis has no rules when it comes to pursuing a groove – and the mix of styles here is great – with different currents of spiritual, Latin, and hardbop along the way. The set includes the first-time appearance of many tracks on vinyl – and titles on volume 2 include "Huracan" by Papo Vasquez, "500 Miles High" by Martin Johnson B3, "Latin Sunset" by Andrea Brachfeld, "Hold On" by Si Ya Makuzeni Sextet, "Latin Deep" by GeeW, "Ahi Na Ma" by Joe Collado, "Plena Drumline" by Papo Vazquez and "Som Do Tambor" by GeeW.

VariousSteppin Stone – The XL & Sounds Of Memphis Story Vol 3 ... CD
Sounds Of Memphis/Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $9.99 18.99
Rare and previously unreleased magic from the Memphis soul scene of the late 60s & early 70s – the third release in Kent's compilation series of gems from the Sounds Of Memphis and XL labels – possibly the rarest collection to date! The numbers here have a proudly southern soul groove at the core, but there's a breadth of styles and deep well of talent at play and this set really gets at the heart of it. Many of the tracks here are on par with the best known southern soul of the era and are as effective as the biggest hits – and we're hearing most of it for the first time! Soulful numbers from singers and groups alike – great stuff by The Minits, George Jackson, The Ovations, Erma Shaw, Willie Walker and many more. We keep thinking that the vaults will empty out, but Kent keeps digging more Sounds Of Memphis treasures – here's hoping it continues! 22 tracks in all: "If You Never See Me" and "Run Around" by Willie Walker, "Hook Line & Sinker" and "Lover Boy" by The Minits, "How Can I Get Next To You" (alternate vocal) and "Love Trying To Come" by George Jackson, "You're Slipping Away" and "Take A Look At Yourself" by Dan Greer, "Guessing Game" by Jimi Hall, "The Plumber" by The Ovations and more.

Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 5CD ... $39.99 65.99
Nothing weird here, just wonderful – a fantastic assortment of music from a time when the British scene was really changing things up – served up in a book-styled package with notes that are as dynamic as its music! The tracks here move way past the obvious – that's an image of John Lennon on the cover, but these aren't the tracks by The Beatles and bigger acts of the time – and instead, the collection really does a great job of digging around all the really wonderful groups that were recording for the bigger British labels of the period, but who were given a lot of freedom to really try out new ideas – both in their music, and in the way the music was recorded. The package is the best we've ever seen to present this slice of English rock – and the set features 122 titles on 5CDs – with work from Ron Geesin, Atlanta Roots, Simon Dupree, The Smoke, John's Children, Ivor Cutler, Tinsel Arcade, The Soft Machine, Canto, New Generation, Medium Rare, 117 Venusian Moonshine, Friday's Chyld, New Generation, Third Ear Band, Wimple Winch, The Deviants, Sorrows, Rupert's People, Orange Bicycle, Shuster, Felius Andromeda, Tomorrow, Crystal Ship, The Moles, and many others – and the set also features 9 never-issued tracks!

VariousWayfaring Strangers – Lonesome Heroes ... CD
Numero, 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $7.99 18.98
Troubadour folk from the 70s and into the early 80s – collected from rare privately issued records – the third set in the Wayfaring Strangers series from Numero! Lonesome Heroes is the male companion set to the equally excellent Ladies Of The Canyon compilation – and it features a haunting mix of spare, kind of eerily melodic vocal & guitar tunes, almost all of them by singer/songwriters who have remained largely unknown to this day. The melodies and chords are mostly on the tender, delicate side, and the voices range from gruff storytelling to sweeter singing. It really stands on its own really well in the Wayfaring Strangers series, too – the guitar playing is in service of the songs here, unlike the accomplished pickers & strummers on the Guitar Soli set, and the tunes aren't as airy as the Ladies From The Canyon material. Wonderful stuff, beatifully packages with great notes on the songs and artists, which should could go without saying, since this comes from the Numero Group! Titles include "Before" by Jim Schoenfeld, "It's So Profound" by Jim Ransom, "As I Walk" by Richard Smyrnios, "No Love Lost" by Tucker Zimmerman, "Hummingbird" by Kieran White, "The Tailor" by Jack Hardy, "Little Children" by George Cromarty, "Deep Night" by Tony Trosley, "Good Morning" by Tim Ward, "I Am The Moonlight" by John Villemonte, "O'Light" by Robb Kunkel and more. 17 tracks in all.

✨✧ FaustFaust Tapes ... CD
Virgin/Bureau B (Germany), 1973. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Don't let the "tapes" in the title fool you – as the album's not really some leftover material, and instead stands proudly as the third full record from Germany's legendary Faust! Even on a scene that was filled with progressive, experimental heavyweights, Faust could still stand alone – maybe more concerned with sounds than songs at times, as you'll definitely hear here – on shorter tracks that make for these marvelous mixes of sonic explosions and melodic inspirations – shifting effortlessly between longer tracks and very short bursts, with some occasional messed up vocals to liven things up! Brilliant throughout, and still overflowing with all the power it had back in the 70s. CD

✨✧ Philip GlassAkhnaten – An Opera In Three Acts – Dennis Russell Davies/Stuttgart State Opera Orchestra & Chorus ... CD
CBS, 1987. Used 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An incredible project from composer Philip Glass – the third in his cycle of operas that helped transform the world of classical music – and maybe the most creative of the bunch! Glass based the text is taken from original sources, and sung in original languages – quite a feat for the singers involved, and a wonderful combination to the orchestrations – which are heavy in the kinds of rhythmic flows that we always love in the composer's music – using keyboards, woodwinds, and fantastic voices in long-flowing minimalist modes! Shalom Goldman worked with Glass on the vocals – and this performance features Dennis Russell Davies at the head of the Stuttgart State Opera orchestra and chorus. CD

✨✧ Vince GuaraldiIt's The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Craft, 1966. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The third soundtrack that Vince Guaraldi did for The Peanuts TV specials – and maybe the best so far! There's a depth to the music that's wonderful – as Vince's combo works alongside some occasional larger orchestrations by John Scott Trotter, which are still arranged by Guaraldi – and the core combo adds in the guitar of John Gray, trumpet of Emanuel Klein, and sax and flute of Ronald Lang – the last of which is a particularly expressive sound on the record! The whole thing's worth it alone for "The Great Pumpkin Waltz" – which captures that perfect mix of melancholy and groove that was Guaraldi at his best – and the set also features maybe the best version ever of "Linus & Lucy", thanks to some flute – plus "Trick Or Treat", "Breathless", "Graveyard Theme", "Snoopy & The Leaf/Freida", and "The Charlie Brown Theme". CD features a whopping 24 tracks in all, with some great alternates and other material – much more than the previous CD! CD

✨✧ Joe Haider/Fritz Pauer/Horace ParlanEgo Recordings Vol 3 (Reconciliation/Katzenvilla/Water Plants/One For Wilton) (4CD set) ... CD
Ego/Organic (Germany), Late 70s. New Copy 4 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Four ultra-rare records – all brought together in one incredible CD set – the third collection to document the brilliant sounds of Germany's Ego Recordings label from the 70s! First up is the album Reconciliation from Joe Haider – one of the 70s gems on the mighty German Ego label – an incredible small company who seemed to put out nothing but excellent music! The set's led by pianist Joe Haider, and features a quintet with Andy Scherrer on tenor and soprano sax, Ack Van Rooyen on flugelhorn, Gunter Lenz on bass, and Todd Canedy on drums – all of them together welling up as way more than the sum of their parts, and cooking up an amazingly soulful set of tunes! There's bits of modal and American 70s spiritual soul jazz in the set – all played with a proud and buoyant style that unfolds majestically through the course of the album, never faltering in its vision or creativity. A under-acknowledged gem, with tracks that include "Mas De Serles", "Magdalena", "Reconciliation", "Crossover", and "Spanish Groove". Katzenvilla features the amazing trio of pianist Joe Haider, bassist Isla Eckinger, and drummer Pierre Favre – three very individual musicians who come together here as a group, but still retain a lot of their special energy! Haider's a lot more dynamic than usual – still with warm chords on the piano, but also some sharper edges – which seem pushed on by Favre's deft drum work, and his flowing sense of both melody and rhythm at the same moment. Eckinger's bass has these deep, soulful currents that we always love – and really grounds the whole thing in a wonderful way – on titles that include "Capricorn", "My Little Darling", "And Now", "Katzenvilla", and "Fate Of A Child" – all originals by Haider! Pianist Fritz Pauer steps out on Water Plants – a trio date that's got a lot more warmth and soul than some of the musician's previous work from the German scene – a beautiful little session that balances the deep bass work of Isla Eckinger and the subtle drums of Billy Brooks. There's a loose, lyrical vibe to the record that shows a side of Pauer we might not have expected – and Fritz wrote some wonderful tunes for the album, including "Water Plants", "Sagittarius", "Tribal Dance", "For La Rives", and "Autumn Evening". Last up is One For Wilton – one of the hippest later albums from pianist Horace Parlan – a set recorded with the saxophonist Wilton Gaynair, who'd contributed heavily to the UK scene in the late 50s/early 60s, then made great waves in Germany during the 70s! The set features Wilton on tenor and soprano sax, Parlan on piano, and great rhythms from Isla Eckinger on bass and Billie Brooks on drums – all coming together with a sense of warmth and imagination that's completely sublime – much richer than some of Gaynair's other performances from the 70s, and with a sense of flow and soul that makes the album one of Parlan's best. Titles include "Billie's Bossa", "One For Wilton", "Shade", "Firm Roots", and "Pananika". All albums come in tiny LP-style covers, and the box also features a bookle of notes! CD

✨✧ Nelson RiddleLolita ... CD
Rhino, 1962. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A very groovy little soundtrack for this original film version of Lolita – directed by Stanley Kubrick with a screenplay by Nabokov himself. The album sports the famous "Lolita Theme", with a weird vocal part that goes "nya nya", and which became something of a minor instrumental hit at the time. About a third of the album is variations on that theme, and the rest of the album features darker tunes that get at the inherent sadness of the movie – standing in stark contrast next to the sillier theme numbers. This CD version includes a number of previously unreleased selections and versions. Tracks include "Love Theme From Lolita", "Two Beat Society", "Thoughts Of Lolita", "School Dance", "Quilty's Theme", and "Lolita Ya Ya", "Music To Eat By", "Diary Entry", "The Strange Call", "Twenty Five Paces" and many more. 23 tracks in all!

✨✧ Velvet UndergroundVelvet Underground (3rd LP) ... CD
Verve, 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The incredible third album from The Velvet Underground – and maybe our favorite of all their albums together – even though this one is far less weird or experimental than the rest! After their initial foray with Nico, and their bombastic sonic experiments on White Light/White Heat, the VU hit this wonderfully subtle territory here – these really personal, moody songs that still have all the knowledge of the wilder sounds of previous records, but which take those farther reaches and bring them back to more focused songwriting – with results that are completely sublime! There's no side-long jams, nor any fuzzy freakouts – but instead, the album's filled with these wonderful songs that really show Lou Reed really honing his craft – able to touch on all the seamy edges of late 60s counterculture, without ever having to hit you over the head – and likewise, the band's instrumentation has this way of using all their wider knowledge of noise and sound in these really refined ways – at a level that opened the door for so many other generations to come. The result is a masterpiece all the way through – and every track is a landmark of dark genius – on titles that include "Pale Blue Eyes", "After Hours", "I'm Set Free", "That's The Story Of My Life", "Candy Says", "What Goes On", and "Jesus".

✨✧ VariousJon Savage's 1972 to 1976 – All Our Times Have Come ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Writer Jon Savage is maybe best known for his work on the early years of punk in England – and here, Savage steps back just a bit – to contextualize the rise of the new music in all sorts of other styles that were bubbling up in the mid 70s! Part of the set is a pathway to punk – especially on some of the glam and power pop cuts that clearly point the way ahead – but there's also a nice mix of hard rock, a bit of prog, and even some catchier numbers that really fit the feel of the package – and show what a wonderful mix of modes was taking place in the mid 70s – a great wake up call to anyone who thinks that things were dead until punk came along! The 2CD package is overflowing with surprises – 44 tracks, with notes from Savage as well – for titles that include "So Far" by Faust, "Hey Joe (version)" by Patti Smith, "Kings Of Speed" by Hawkwind, "Third Uncle" by Brian Eno, "After Eight" by Neu, "Easy To Slip" by Little Feat, "Girl From Germany" by Sparks, "End Unkind" by Grin, "Andy Warhol" by Dana Gillespie, "Yang Yang" by Yoko Ono, "Vicious" by Lou Reed, "She Means A Lot To Me" by Smyle, "When My Baby's Beside Me" by Big Star, "One Of The Boys" by Mott The Hoople, "Max's Kansas City 76 (part 1)" by Wayne County, "Cherry Bomb" by The Runaways, "Train Train" by Count Bishops, "I Don't Mind" by Dr Feelgood, "Slow Death" by Flamin Groovies, and "You Really Got Me" by Hammersmith Gorillas.

✨✧ Sun RaMonorails & Satellites Vols 1 to 3 – Works For Solo Piano (3LP set) ... LP
Saturn/Cosmic Myth, 1966. New Copy 3LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Fantastic material from the legendary Sun Ra – groundbreaking solo piano material, which shows a completely different side of his genius away from his work with the Arkestra! The package presents all volumes of Ra's seminal sides from 1966 – including a third volume, which has never been released at all – making for the most comprehensive package to ever document this side of his work in a more intimate manner! There's a sensitivity to these tracks that's really amazing – still moments of freedom that reflect Ra's connection to the avant garde of the time – but also echoes of Art Tatum and other stylists who influenced his initial vision in the early days – interwoven with his own sense of cosmic creation, in ways that are similar to his later solo projects – but which didn't often show up in other Saturn material of the time. Some tracks are altered standards, but many others are really great originals – and titles include the unreleased "Soundscapes", "The Eternal Tomorrow", "The Changing Wind", "World Island Festival", "Today Is Not Yesterday", "How Am I To Know", and "Yesterdays" – plus "Caloundronius", "Perspective Prismis Of Is", "Solar Boats", "The Ninth Eye", "Space Towers", "Cognition", "The Galaxy Way", "The Alter Destiny", and "Blue Differentials".

✨✧ VariousCumbia Beat Vol 3 – 21 Peruvian Tropical Gems ... CD
Vampi Soul (Spain), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A smoking third volume in this mighty look at the Peruvian cumbia scene of the 70s – music that often shares the same blend of guitar, percussion, and keyboards that makes some of the chica grooves from that time so great! The music here maybe owes a bit more to Latin sounds from up north, but the overall execution is very strongly in the modes put forth by Peruvian labels and producers at the time – often with great use of echo, especially in the guitar lines and keyboards – which make things sound very different than anything coming from Colombia or New York at the time! Yet there's also plenty of salsa elements at play here, too – the kind of percussive interplay that might be driving a Cuban or Puerto Rican combo – but nicely different in this setting too. Titles include "Chola Ingrata" by Los Ecos, "Manzana Verde" by Los Tantos, "El Saltamontes" by Silvestre Montez Y Sus Guantanameros, "La Manzanita" by Los Gitanos, "Descarga Oriental" by Los Orientales De Paramonga, "Larga Espera" by Los Sanders De Nana, "Lamento Moyobambino" by Sonido Verde De Moyobamba, and "La Narajadita" by Grupo Siglo XX.

✨✧ Fitz Gore & The TalismenSoundmusication (with bonus track) ... LP
Gorbra/Sonorama (Germany), 1980. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The rare third album from spiritual reedman Fitz Gore – the last part of a trilogy of fantastic records issued on his own tiny label in Germany at the end of the 70s – all of which easily rival some of the best indie American work of the time! The style here is less slavishly tied to spiritual modes of the post-Coltrane years, and we mean that in a really great way – as Fitz mixes in keyboards and guitar with some of his instrumentation, and changes things up from track to track, while still allowing for plenty of soul and spirit in the music! One cut has just organ next to Gore's vocals, with a very odd sound – while others feature his tenor in a variety of small combo settings – on titles that include "Pelatiah", "Nora", "Musication", "Revival Time", and "The Very Thought". LP also features the bonus track "Gisela". LP, Vinyl record album

The approach makes for a wonderfully sharp, lean presentation that really stands out from the pack – with titles that include "The Last Wars", "There Are Ghosts", "Outside Is The Drama", "Not To Call The Police", "Fatal Strategies", "Diazapam", and "Bass Sounds".

✨✧ Charles MingusReincarnation Of A Love Bird (Candid) ... CD
Candid/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1960. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great counterpart to the two famous Charles Mingus albums for the Candid label – really a third "lost" Candid album, recorded at the time of those sets, but never issued until many years later! As with those great dates, the work here is filled with righteous anger, unbridled emotion, and some of the most passionate jazz work of the 20th Century – directed by Mingus with unfailing energy on the bass, and featuring solo work from players who include Charles McPherson, Lonnie Hillyer, Booker Ervin, Paul Bley, Eric Dolphy, and Jimmy Knepper. None of the tracks here appeared on the albums that were released by Candid – Presents Charles Mingus or Mingus – and they were all recorded on the November 11, 1960 date that yielded part of that second album. Titles include "Bugs", "Reincarnation of a Lovebird", "R&R", "Wrap Your Troubles In Dreams", and a soulful take on "Body and Soul". CD
