Third World96 Degrees In The Shade ... LP
Mango, 1977. Near Mint- ... $13.99
The second album from Third World – and the one that really helped break them out to the widespread success that they'd enjoy for years with their crisp, tight brand of modern reggae – fusing roots vibes with top notch production values and some rock and funk touches! Includes "1865 (96 Degrees In The Shade)", which was a massive hit for the group, an instantly recognizable harmony cut that laid the blueprint for the band's future. The rest of the album grooves along in a similar vein, with tight propulsive rhythms keeping proceedings fresh throughout! Also includes "Feel A Little Better", "Third World Man", "Tribal War", "Rhythm Of Life" and "Jah Glory". LP, Vinyl record album

Third WorldJourney To Addis ... LP
Island, 1978. Near Mint- ... $9.99
It may be pop reggae or whatever you want to call it – but the strength of the group's version of "Now That We Found Love" really pushed them over the top! That track's the real winner here – a smooth modern soul number with just a slight hint of Kingston, grooving away in a crossover style that we still really dig. Other tracks include "Journey To Addis", "One Cold Vibe", "Cold Sweat", and "African Woman". LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia, 1982. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
After leaving Island and moving onto Columbia, Third World got a bit more slick, and continued to work a reggae/pop/soul groove. This record's not a bad one, in fact, it's a pretty respectable crossover effort. Stevie Wonder collaborated with the group on the 2 best tracks, "Try Jah Love" and "You're Playing Us Too Close", the LP also includes "Jah, Jah Children Moving Up", "You've Got The Power (To Make A Change)" and "Low Key Jammin".

✨✧ Herbie NicholsThird World ... LP
Blue Note, 1956/1975. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Herbie Nichols was one of the greatest piano players of the 20th Century, and his best work was recorded for Blue Note! You can hear just about every track he recorded for the label in this set (apart from some alternate takes), which is a stunning batch of lively tracks that rank Nichols right up there with Monk, Cecil Taylor, and Randy Weston for sheer modernist inventiveness. Even though we're not the biggest fans of the basic piano trio format, this stuff blows away all other recordings of that genre, and it never ceases to amaze us. Titles include "Step Tempest", "Crisp Day", "2300 Skiddoo", "Query", "Blue Chopsticks", and "Chit Chatting". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Cornell CampbellI Man A The Stal-A-Watt ... LP
Third World/17 North Parade, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The title's a bit confusing, but Cornell Campbell's essentially saying that he's a stalwart – something we can completely agree with, given his strong legacy in Jamaican music – and the sublime sound of a 70s classic like this! Cornell's got a higher range than some of his contemporaries, but never in a way that makes his music sound too light or airy at all – because there's a sense of soul going on that maybe stands as a Jamaican counterpart to 70s Marvin Gaye, especially in the way that Campbell inflects his notes on the sweeter tunes on the set! Most of the production is handled by Bunny Lee or Joe Gibbs – and titles include "The Gorgon", "The Stal-A-Watt", "The Investigator", "Hypocrite", "Two Face Rasta", "Two Timer", "Boxing Around", and "Bandulu".

John LewisWonderful World Of Jazz ... LP
Atlantic, 1960. Near Mint- ... $19.99
One of the best early albums cut by John Lewis as a leader – a set that's a fair bit different than John's work with the Modern Jazz Quartet – thanks to strong guest appearances from players who include Paul Gonsalves and Benny Golson on tenor sax, Eric Dolphy on alto, Jim Hall on guitar, and Herb Pomeroy on trumpet. Most of the tracks are a great mix of the mellow, introspective Lewis approach with some of the freer, more relaxed styles of the soloists – an approach that's slightly third stream, but which also has some of the great sounds and tones that Lewis forged on his Afternoon In Paris album with Sacha Distel. Titles include great versions of "Body & Soul" and "Afternoon In Paris", plus Lewis' classic "2 Degrees East, 3 Degrees West", as well as "I Should Care" and "I Remember Clifford".

Atlantic/Collectables, 1960/1999. Used 2 CDs ... $8.99
2 different albums by pianist John Lewis – each recorded nearly four decades apart, and packaged here in a single set! First up is Wonderful World Of Jazz, one of the best early albums cut by John Lewis as a leader – a set that's a fair bit different than John's work with the Modern Jazz Quartet – thanks to strong guest appearances from players who include Paul Gonsalves and Benny Golson on tenor sax, Eric Dolphy on alto, Jim Hall on guitar, and Herb Pomeroy on trumpet. Most of the tracks are a great mix of the mellow, introspective Lewis approach with some of the freer, more relaxed styles of the soloists – an approach that's slightly third stream, but which also has some of the great sounds and tones that Lewis forged on his Afternoon In Paris album with Sacha Distel. Titles include great versions of "Body & Soul" and "Afternoon In Paris", plus Lewis' classic "2 Degrees East, 3 Degrees West", as well as "I Should Care" and "I Remember Clifford". Next is Evolution, recorded in 1999 – and featuring Lewis on solo piano in Tarrytown Music Hall. The setting is an auspicious one – and the recording has Lewis' solo notes ring out strongly, filling the whole room with their power and presence – even though the overall approach here still has all the sense of space between the notes of John's music from many decades before. Lewis has lost none of his grace on the keys, nor his ear for an interesting tone – and titles include "Afternoon In Paris", "Cherokee", "For Ellington", "Don't Blame Me", "At The Horse Show", "Willow Weep For Me", "Django", and "September Song".

Beaujolais BandTalk Talk & More Talk ... LP

Nice work by one of the straighter groups on the Acid Jazz label – a tight little combo led by vibist Roger Beaujolais, and featuring instrumentation that includes piano, organ, and lots of percussion! The groove here has plenty of nice Latin touches – none too heavy, but in a good retro-styled mode. Titles include a nice jazz dance take on "Milestones", plus "Compassion", "The New World", "Third Man", "Riffin For Cal", and "Sister Grace". LP, Vinyl record album

Cilla BlackSher-oo/Modern Priscilla (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Parlophone/SFE (UK), 1968/1978. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99
A pair of EMI classics from Cilla Black – separated by the space of a decade, and filled in with 21 more bonus tracks too! First up is Sher-oo – fantastic work from Cilla Black – only her third full length album, but a set that already has the singer growing way past some of her British female contemporaries of the 60s! There's still a bit of the uptown soul of Cilla's roots – the dark-stepping groove that always served her so well – but there's also a wider range of song styles and arrangements, with a majestic flow that really does great things with Black's incredible vocal approach. Johnny Harris and Johnny Scott both had a hand in putting the charts together – and the set also features the classic "Step Inside My Love", written for Cilla by Lennon & McCartney. Other tracks include "Yo Yo", "Take Me In Your Arms & Love Me", "Misty Roses", "Something's Gotten A Hold Of My Heart", "Follow The Path Of The Stars", and "What The World Needs Now". Modern Priscilla is a record that takes Cilla Black in an unusual direction – a set that has her moving into more disco modes overall, but still keeping things relatively special, thanks to strong production work from Mike Hurst, and a track selection of unusual material! Given that Black's vocals always had a lot more range than some of the mainstream disco singers of the European scene, she fits right in – and manages to turn out a few gentler tracks amidst all the funkier upbeat numbers. As mentioned, the set features a huge number of bonus tracks – including "This Time I'm In It For Love", "Songs", "Follow", "Silly Boy (Paul Hulme mix)", "From Now On", "Work Is A Four Letter Word (film version)", "Step Inside My Love (almighty 12" definitive mix)", "M'Innamoro", "Step Inside Love (first take)", and "All My Love".

CJ & CoAin't It Amazing – The Unreleased Westbound Masters ... CD
Westbound/Ace (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... $12.99 18.99
The lost third album from CJ & Co – that totally groovy, totally tight group who were one of the best things going on Westbound Records in the late 70s! CJ & Co had a groove that was just right for the new club world of the time – but they also had a sharp instrumental approach that was much more tied to the Detroit funk of early 70s Westbound – and their sound was given a fantastic push and polish by the production team of Mike Theodore and Dennis Coffey, who really keep things sounding strong throughout! These aren't leftover cuts, or the kind of material that was rejected at the time – and instead, the whole package has a quality level that really matches the classic Devil's Gun record by the group – a funky disco spectacular all the way through. Titles include "Is Your Love Life Better", "Ain't It Amazing", "Rainbow Music", "Brassband", "Get Lucky", "Rainmaker", "The Golden Touch", "Can't Believe You'd Break Your Promise", "Let Them Talk", "Boogie Love", and a rare "original mix" of "Devil's Gun". All tracks previously unreleased! CD

✨✧ CymandePromised Heights ... LP
Janus, 1974. Very Good Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
Cymande hit some well-deserved heights on this massive third album – working with a complicated groove that's even more compelling than their earlier albums – in a righteous blend of heavy bass and tripped-out guitars that's unlike anything else we've ever heard! The music's a unique blend of roots from Guyana coming into play with the changes of the 70s London scene – and the group have a way of reaching out past borders, past familiar styles, and making a whole new world of their own! 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

Down To The BoneClassic Album Series (From Manhattan To Staten/Urban Grooves/Spread The Word – with bonus tracks) (3CD set) ... CD
Dome (UK), 1996/1998/2001. New Copy 3CD ... $16.99
The first three albums from Down To The Bone – packaged here in a nicely-priced set, with bonus tracks too! First up is From Manhattan To Staten – a record that moves across the boroughs of New York – and which also managed to have a huge impact on the Windy City as well – given that the music of Down To The Bone was perfect for the groove of the Chicago steppers scene in the 90s! The group are a bit jazz, a bit soul, and have this chunky funky rhythm at the bottom that shows their roots in the British scene – maybe a mix of electric jazz modes with inspirations from artists like Soul II Soul or the James Taylor Quartet – taken to a style that's slightly tighter overall. There's a fair bit of programming in the rhythms, mixed with live instrumentation from group members – and titles include the classic "Staten Island Groove", plus "Muesli Brown", "Savour The Flavour", "Brooklyn Heights", "3 Days In Manhattan", "Carlito's Way", "On The Corner Of Darcy Street", and "17 Mile Drive". Urban Grooves is the second album from Down To The Bone – and a set that really continues the vibe of their debut – a mix of programmed funky rhythms and liver jazz instrumentation – all awash in a groove that really helped them cross over big on both sides of the Atlantic! The production is tight, but looser than smooth jazz of the time – and the record's got more than a few strong keyboard and saxophone solos to offset its rhythmic patterns, which often draw heavily from the best styles of the British soul scene in the late 80s and early 90s. Titles include "A Little Touch Of Soul", "Phat City Hustler", "Joy Is A Good Groove", "Bump N Hustle", "To The Bone", "The Zodiac", and "Urban Jazz". Spread The Word is the overlooked third album from Down To The Bone – a set that maybe didn't take the world by storm as much as their first two, but which still has the group very much in fine formation! All the best previous elements are in place here – that strong mix of funky jazz instrumentation with contemporary rhythmic production – almost a blend of some of the funkier club styles of the time with more mainstream fusion, at a level that made these guys both a hit on the dancefloors and for kicking back at the crib! Titles include "The Backburner", "Righteous Reeds", "Sound As A Pound", "Bridgeport Boogie", "The Lowdown", and "Black Choice". 3CD set features all albums in small LP-style jackets – and bonus tracks include "Deja Vu", "Concrete Jungle", "Staten Island Groove (live studio version)", and "Brooklyn Heights (live studio version)".

Marvin GayeMidnight Love ... LP
Columbia, 1982. Very Good ... $5.99
Marvin Gaye's last album ever – and a sensuous batch of grooves that almost return him to the sound of Let's Get It On! The style here is a bit more modern, but the sound is still great – a smoother approach to soul than most of Gaye's contemporaries at the time, recorded in a way that has the vocals soaring majestically over the top of the backings! Slight undercurrents of funk spice things up somewhat, but still avoid any mainstream 80s groove cliches – and Marvin wrote, arranged, and produced the album himself (although with a bit of help from Chicago organist Odell Brown on the hit "Sexual Healing"!) Titles include "Sexual Healing", "My Love Is Waiting", "Third World Girl", "Turn On Some Music", "Joy", and "Midnight Lady". LP, Vinyl record album

Salsoul/Octave (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $22.99
Maybe the third great Philly studio group of the 70s – after MFSB and Salsoul Orchestra – a killer combo who provided backing grooves to plenty of great club tracks over the years – and who step out strongly here on their own debut album! Bunny Sigler helps give the album a sharp focus – with his own production and songwriting in play – in modes that are very much like his own best club tracks of the time – but the group is more than great enough on their own – with a funky edge that definitely lives up to their name, and a groove that's even sharper than the two aforementioned contemporary combos. Lead vocals are by James Carmichael, who's totally great – and titles include "Don't You Wanna Party", "Never Let It Go Away", "I Got My Mind Made Up", "Dark Vader", "Wide World Of Sports", and "You Say You Want Me To Stay". CD features 5 bonus tracks – "I Got My Mind Made Up (orig single)", "I Got My Mind Made Up (Larry Levan 12" mix)", "Crying (Larry Levan 12" mix)", "Crying (Bobby Guttadoro 12" mix)", and "Dark Vader (Pat Stapley 12" mix)".

Epic, 1987. Used ... $1.99
The third great album in the trilogy that includes Off The Wall and Thriller – and a set that still has Michael Jackson running strong at the height of his solo powers! Quincy Jones is still at the helm, and Michael more than proves that he can still come up with a pop tune without going too far over the top – catchy, compelling numbers that played well all over the world of pop – but which still hang onto just a little part of his soul roots too! That balance is a key factor to the success of this set – a record that helped re-ignite interest in Jackson's music, and introduce him to a whole new generation – while still keeping most of the older fans plenty pleased too. Titles include "Just Good Friends", "Smooth Criminal", "Bad", "Another Part Of Me", "Man In The Mirror", and "Speed Demon". CD

Even without drums, the group has an innate swing to it, and the set never loses momentum. Most of the compositions are Jamal & Dyani originals, with Dorge bringing one piece to the set. 8 tracks in all, including: "Bhala", "Blueslife", "MK Speaks of the Nation" & "Children of the Third World".

MPS (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $22.99
Bold music, indeed – a tremendous blend of avant garde jazz and groovier moments from pianist Joachim Kuhn! The style is a great illustration of the two key poles of the MPS label at the end of the 60s – the company's willingness to take a chance on freer jazz artists, but also its ability to sometimes focus those artists in a bit more, and get them to record tunes with a strong rhythmic pulse and nice sense of groove. Kuhn's working here not only on acoustic piano, but also alto sax, gong, antelope horn, and more – and other members of the group include JF Jenny-Clarke on bass and cello, Jacques Thollot on percussion, and Stu Martin on drums and bells! Titles include the groover "Depression & Illusion", plus "Third World War", "Message From Upstairs", "The Child Out There Somewhere", "Vampires Castle", and "My Friend The Yogi". CD

MandreMandre ... CD
Motown (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $13.99
A classic set of spacey club from Mandre – aka Andre Lewis – an artist we'd place right up there with some of the best cosmic sounds from Dexter Wansel at the time, and maybe even some of the more space-bound club artists of the European scene as well! The album's got some wonderful keyboards throughout – heard in a mostly instrumental mode on side one, save for a great track that includes vocals from Maxayn – and as the set rolls along, things get more confident, more groove-oriented, and pick up some bassier rhythms that fit in wonderfully with Mandre's overall conception! The album's got a fuzzy, trippy sound you'd hardly expect from late 70s Motown – and the whole thing's been an underground club classic for years – with cuts that include the sublime "Solar Flight (Opus I)" and "Third World Calling (Opus II)", plus "Keep Tryin", "Masked Music Man", "Wonder What I'd Do", "Money", "Dirty Love", and "Masked Marauder".

Geoff MuldaurIs Having A Wonderful Time/Motion ... CD
Reprise/BGO (UK), 1975/1976. New Copy ... $8.99 14.99
Two solo albums from Geoff Muldaur – recorded long after his jug band years, and his earlier sets with wife Maria! First up is Geoff Muldaur Is Having A Wonderful Time – a striking solo album from Geoff Muldaur – a record that draws on all the many different sounds and styles he brought to records through the 60s and early 70s, but which also adds in a stronger jazz impulse overall! Each track on the record has a slightly different spirit, which makes the whole thing feel more like a continuation of the experimental, open style of putting albums together that Warner/Reprise was so great at a few years before – as Muldaur sings with backings from a jazz group on one track, a string orchestra on another, a funk group on a third, and a roots rock combo on another – with players as diverse as Merle Saunders on electric piano, Doc Cheatham on trumpet, Bernard Purdie on drums, and Harold Vick on tenor. Joe Boyd produced – one of the few folks who might be able to successfully handle such a range – and titles include "Higher & Higher", "99 1/2", "Livin In The Sunlight", "I Want To Be A Sailor", "Tennessee Blues", "High Blood Pressure", and "Wondering Why". Motion is a set that's a bit tighter than some of the earlier work of Geoff Muldaur – a set that maybe has the well-trained singer moving into territory that's almost verging on AOR, yet which still hangs on to some of the wit of his earlier records as well! There's still some key traces of 70s Warner going on here – including a few songs by Allen Toussaint, and one with Martin Mull – which help balance out some of the more direct, tuneful numbers, and continue to provide some of the more offbeat qualities that made Geoff such an interesting sideways talent in the mainstream music world. Tracks include "Motion", "Let It Out", "I Don't Want To Talk About It", "When You Touch Me This Way", "Why Don't We Live Together", and a version of "Southern Nights". CD

Saturn/Cosmic Myth, 1966. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99 15.98
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".

Rare EarthDreams/Answers ... LP
Verve, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $43.99
The funky blue-eyed debut of Rare Earth – an early Detroit combination of soul, rock, and funk! The group really sprang to fame on Motown right after this early album for Verve – but this set may be even harder and heavier than any of their later records – produced by Dennis Coffey, with a nice blend of fuzz and funk, at a level that's very much like the best Atlantic sounds from Vanilla Fudge – but much more born from the Detroit scene that could give the world The Stooges and Funkadelic at the same time! Many cuts are soul standards, redone with a heavy-drum style that's pretty great – and some of the originals have more of the psych feel, but are graced by some genuinely soulful vocals, often done in harmony style. Titles include "Mothers Oats", "New Rochelle", "Yesterday On Third Avenue", "Red Apple", "Get Ready", "6-3-4-5", and "Sidewalk Cafe". LP, Vinyl record album

A really surprising project from long-running Boston soul singer Barrence Whitfield – a set of songs from the Sun Ra side of the universe – delivered with a vibe that's a bit different than some of Whitfield's other material! The package features tracks from two different periods – the first, a series of early 90s recordings that focus more on the soul-styled sound of Ra's 45rpm output – the second, a bit more far-reaching, and maybe more Ra-like overall – but with plenty of vocals from Barrence upfront! Brother Cleve handles keyboards and a fair bit of the arrangements – and titles include remakes of "Black Man", "I'm Gonna Unmask The Batman", "Somebody Else's World", "Nuclear War", "Everything Is Space", and "Love In Outer Space".

VariousHillbillies In Hell Vol 3 – Country Music's Tormented Testament 1952 to 1974 – The Final Chapter ... CD
Omni (Australia), 1950s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
Heavenly voices, turning towards hell – in a host of rare country music tracks that deal with the devil and the world down under! The set's the third volume in this wonderful series, and may well be the deepest-digging so far – and stands as a demonstration that, if you're going to have the spirit of redemption in your music, you've also got to make room for damnation as well! Some of the artists here might be familiar, but there's also a fair bit of very rare tracks too (and you can trust us on that – as we're hillbilly hounds ourselves!) As before, there's some great track by track notes that illuminate the music – alongside titles that include "Satan's Child" by Anita Carter, "Six Rounds Of Love & Hate" by Autry Inman, "Devil's Slate" by Johnny Tyler, "Ten O'Clock Train" by Harold Lee, "I'm Going Down For The Third Time" by Eddie Snell & His Midwestern Aces, "Ain't No Grave Gonna Hold My Body Down" by Ralph Hart, "Suicide Blues" by Stringbean, "Bang Bang You're Dead" by Steve Bledsoe, "Graveyard Dance" by Ray Sanders, and "The Neon & The Rain" by Freddie Hart.

VariousRhythm Come Forward – A Reggae Anthology ... CD
Columbia, Mid 70s-Early 80s. Used ... $1.99
An odd compilation pulled together by Columbia in the 80s, not because the assortment of tracks is especially out of place or without continuity, but because the set seems mostly to be pulled together to capitalize on reggae's popularity, though it was assembled well after most major labels had given up on cashing in with Jamaican music. Though some material is listed as previously unreleased like Aswad's "Drum & Bass Line" and "African Children", though those tracks were available at the time, but the compilation does have a unique Francois Kevorkian remix of Jimmy Cliff's "Treat The Youths Right", and more than a handful of other nice numbers. 9 tracks in all, the set also includes "One Love" and "Simmer Down" by Bob Marley & The Wailers, "legalize It" and "Stepping Razor" by Peter Tosh, "Blood Stain" by Yellowman and Sister Nancy and "Try Jah Love" by Third World.

✨✧ Hampton HawesEverybody Likes Hampton Hawes – Vol 3 The Trio ... LP
Contemporary, 1956. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Maybe the title's a bit overly-optimistic – but with a record like this, you can certainly imagine a world in which everybody does like Hampton Hawes! The record's the third in a legendary early run for the Contemporary label – trio material that broke Hawes out of the box and firmly put his rich talents on the keys at the top of the list of the best players in jazz. The sound's an amazing blend of jazz idioms at the time – with some of the flourishes of the Peterson or Jamal crowd, but often a tighter, almost rootsier bottom in the rhythms – a touch of the LA soul jazz sound, showing up here quite early! The trio features Red Mitchell on bass and Chuck Thompson on drums – and tracks are short, but showcase the open sound that Hawes was developing at the time. Titles include "Night In Tunisia", "Body & Soul", "Lover Come Back To Me", and the Hawes originals "The Sermon" and "Coolin The Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Michael JacksonBad ... LP
Epic, 1987. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The third great album in the trilogy that includes Off The Wall and Thriller – and a set that still has Michael Jackson running strong at the height of his solo powers! Quincy Jones is still at the helm, and Michael more than proves that he can still come up with a pop tune without going too far over the top – catchy, compelling numbers that played well all over the world of pop – but which still hang onto just a little part of his soul roots too! That balance is a key factor to the success of this set – a record that helped re-ignite interest in Jackson's music, and introduce him to a whole new generation – while still keeping most of the older fans plenty pleased too. Titles include "Just Good Friends", "Smooth Criminal", "Bad", "Another Part Of Me", "Man In The Mirror", and "Speed Demon". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes printed inner sleeve. Cover has some staining.)

✨✧ Khan Jamal/Johnny Dyani/Pierre DorgeThree ... LP
Steeplechase (Denmark), 1985. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A very sweet set of open, spacious jazz – played by an international trio in a unique grouping! The Amazing South African bassist Johnny Dyani holds the group together, while Khan Jamal's vibes & Pierre Dorge's guitar dance over the top trading melodies and chordal support. Even without drums, the group has an innate swing to it, and the set never loses momentum. Most of the compositions are Jamal & Dyani originals, with Dorge bringing one piece to the set. 8 tracks in all, including: "Bhala", "Blueslife", "MK Speaks of the Nation" & "Children of the Third World".

✨✧ VariousAll The Young Droogs – 60 Juvenile Delinquent Wrecks – Rock N Glam & A Flavour Of Bubblegum From The 70s (3CD set) ... CD
RPM (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy 3 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic collection of gems from the glam rock years – music that's much more obscure than the bigger work of the time by artists like Bowie, Bolan, or Queen – and which instead represents this amazing untapped underground that really opens up our understanding of the time! Some of these groups hit bigger fame in the world of hard rock – and there's definitely a few classic acts on here too – but the package is also full of smaller-name groups who are draped in fuzz guitar, pounding heavy drums, and singing with plenty of attitude – all to give England the kick in the ass that it needed in the years before punk! The production is often as fantastic as the performance – all the elements compressed up together in the best glammish way, which makes even sweet moments sound oddly sinister – and as with other packages of this nature from Cherry Red, the notes are as superb as the set list – showing that the careful choices of cuts were extremely thoughtful and well-researched. 60 tracks in all – with work by Buster, Hector, Bilbo Baggins, One Hit Wonders, Iron Virgin, Slowload, James Hogg, Milk N Cookies, Third World War, Ning, Stevie Wright, Sweeny Todd, Biggles, Mint, Tank, John Henry, Rococo, Metro, Brett Smiley, Redhead, Hot Rod, Baby Grande, Lemming, The Jets, and many more.

Elektra, 1982. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A mighty mighty tribute to the great Bob Marley – served up here by a host of former associates, family members, and Jamaican contemporaries – all in some lively concert performances that really open things up! The double-length set was a great seller at the time, and continues to be a spirited document of this key moment of reggae explosion on the global scene – and titles include "Sound System" and "Ku Klux Klan" by Steep Pulse, "Plastic Smile" and "Guess Who's Coming To Dinner" by Black Uhuru, "The Bed's Too Big Without You" by Sheila Hylton, "Soon Forward" by Gregory Isaacs, "1865" by Third World, "Right Time" by Mighty Diamonds, "If I Had The World" by Dennis Brown, "Belly Full" by Rita Marley & The I-Threes, and "Sugar Pie" by Melody Makers & The Wailers.

✨✧ Muddy WatersRollin Stone/Walkin Blues ... 7-inch
Chess/Third Man, 1950. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A classic early tune from Muddy Waters – one that might not have changed the world when it was released at the start of the 50s – but later gave the famous group their name! The tune's a wonderful mix of raw rural and early electric Chicago blues modes – spare, but extremely powerful in approach! "Walkin Blues" is equally well-balanced – and Muddy's got some wonderful twang in parts on the strings of his electric guitar! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Beautiful reissue pressing – even in a vintage-style Chess sleeve!)

✨✧ Ethan Iverson & Mark TurnerTemporary Kings ... CD
ECM, 2018. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
We've always loved the wonderfully dark corners in the tenor work of saxophonist Mark Turner – but it sounds especially great here, in the company of pianist Ethan Iverson – as the two players deliver a superb album of duo material for ECM! Iverson never softens the sound of Turner, but he does bring out a greater current of sentiment than we sometimes hear in his work – especially when Mark might get a bit too "arch", and maybe limit himself to the moodier side of the spectrum. Instead, both he and Iverson create this sublime balance of darkness and light throughout – in a mode that's very unique, even in a familiar ECM setting – on original material that includes "Lugano", "Temporary Kings", "Dixie's Dilemma", "Seven Points", "Myron's World", and "Third Familiar".

✨✧ Muddy WatersElectric Mud ... LP
Cadet/Third Man, 1968. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The funk-tinged, pyschedelic soul album from Muddy Waters – one that irritated many a blues purist in its day – but it's finally reaching its earned status as a leftfield gem! You know, in the immediate years after this one (and similar funky blues albums on Chess/Cadet) was released, it was downplayed as a cheap attempt to sell out Muddy's classic blues sound. These days, it's treasured by many of us as a unique funky session that merged the best of Chicago's funk, soul, and blues worlds – taking Muddy's sound way past earlier records and into uncharted waters. It's similar to some of the work on Chess at the time by Bo Diddley and Etta James – and it includes lots of nice updated groovers like "I'm A Man", "I Just Want To Make Love to You", "Hoochie Coochie Man", "Same Thing", "She's All Right", and "Tom Cat". Arrangements are by Charles Stepney, too! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ David AxelrodEarth Rot – A Musical Comment On The State Of The Environment ... LP
Capitol/Now Again, 1970. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the most righteous, message-oriented albums ever from David Axelrod – and the third in his legendary trilogy of instrumental sets for Capitol Records! Earth Rot moves even past the modes of Songs Of Innocence and Songs Of Experience – to offer up a chilling message on the environment, circa 1970 – with beautiful arrangements in the best Axelrod tradition – performed by a large group of jazz players who mixes vibes, guitars, and off-kilter reeds – augmented by a group of singers who perform some of the lyrics of the set, most of which are adapted from the Old Testament and from Navajo legends! The record's broken into two long suites – "The Warnings" and "The Signs" – and the whole thing blends together in a spacey, other-worldly mix of heavy arrangements and trippy grooves! Amazing package – includes a full bonus LP of instrumental versions, appearing here for the first time ever – plus a huge 28 page booklet of notes and images! LP, Vinyl record album

Roy AyersVirgin Ubiquity II – Unreleased Recordings 1976 to 1981 (3LP's & CD) ... LP
Rapster/BBE (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 3LP & CD ... On January 17, 2020
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! Titles include "Holiday", "Kwajilori", "I Am Your Mind (part 2)", "Touch Of Class", "Third Time", "Come To Me", "Wide Open", "Funk In The Hole", "Liquid Love", "Tarzan", "Sunshine (demo)", and "I Like The Way You Do It To Me".

Adama BarryLembi ... CD
OK World (Norway), 2018. New Copy ... $9.99
Spare sounds get taken to the next dimension – as the music of Adama Barry is presented in both its original creation, and in a set of remixes by Henrik Schwarz, Bugge Wesseltoft, Prins Thomas, Mental Overdrive, and others! The album's got an unusual approach – as two-thirds of the tracks just feature Burkina Faso musician Barry – who sings, and plays a range of regional instruments, with help from Solo Diarra on djembe and balafon – all on these very spare tracks that are beautiful and haunting. Then, on six of the album's fifteen tracks, the remixers step in and electrify things – often adding beats, keyboard lines, and reworking the acoustic elements in a variety of ways. Titles include "Lembi", "Maama", "Soukalen", "Serendou", "Bissa", and "Mballa". CD

Bob Seger & The Last HeardHeavy Music – The Complete Cameo Recordings 1966/1967 ... LP
Cameo/Abkco, Mid 60s. New Copy ... $18.99 21.99
A fantastic early side of work from 70s superstar Bob Seger – and one that comes as quite a surprise, compared to his hits! This early material is really raw, gritty, and definitely shows Bob's roots in the same Detroit scene that was changing the worlds of both soul and rock in the late 60s – often with groups that had an equal emphasis on both sides of the spectrum! In fact, there's a surprisingly strong current of soul that runs through many of these cuts – a romping energy that really matches the freakier, fuzzier touches of the instrumentation – all with results that will have you maybe thinking about Bob in a whole new way. Some of the modes recall the best early Mitch Ryder material, but often with a trippier sort of vibe – and although the tracks came out as singles on the Cameo label in the mid 60s, this is the first full album ever issued of the material. Titles include "Sock It To Me Santa", "Heavy Music (parts 1 & 2)", "Chain Smokin", "Persecution Smith", "Vagrant Winter", "East Side Story", "Very Few", and "Florida Time". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Woody HermanThree Herds ... LP
Columbia, 1954. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
A great collection of work from one of the hippest bandleaders to emerge in the swing generation – and one of the few to be able to tie his approach to the growing worlds of modern jazz and jump jive too! The set features material from Woody Herman's first three "herds" – the first, his initial recording group with Columbia; the second, his groundbreaking group with the "four brothers" group of horn players who included Stan Getz and Jimmy Giuffre; and the third his mid 50s revival group that had Ralph Burns turning in some great modern arrangements to rework that four brothers sound. The set features very lively notes from Woody himself – and titles include "Non Alcoholic", "Caldonia", "Good Earth", "Four Brothers", "Early Autumn", "Third Herd", "Mulligan Tawny", "Blame Boehm", and "Sidewalks Of Cuba". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono 6 eye pressing with deep groove. Cover has clear tape on the top seam.)
