Tom ZeCorreio Da Estaco Do Bras (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Continental/Polysom (Brazil), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
One of those impossible to find records by Tom Ze from the 70s – and well worth the search! The record has Ze working in a slightly more conventional mode – with a mix of styles that ranges from spare percussive tracks, to others that have a smoother production style, but still a fairly mad lyrical approach. There's a bit more electronics in here than on some of the earlier albums, but trust us, like all musical elements, they're used in the service of Ze's mad vision more than they are in any standard way. Titles include "Amor De Estrada", "Carta", "Morena", "Menina Jesus", "Na Parada De Sucesso", and "Pecado, Rifa E Revista". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Tom ZeEstudando O Samba ... CD
Continental/Mr Bongo (UK), 1976. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
A record with "samba" in the title, but a set that hardly sounds like samba at all – given that the record is one of the groundbreaking 70s albums from the legendary Tom Ze! Ze first rose to fame as an experimentalist in the Tropicalia scene – but here, he's years past that movement, yet still one of its most creative proponents – working in a mode that takes older Brazilian rhythms and infuses them with all the new sounds, styles, and sense of poetry that Tom was bringing to his music – often quite playful, but at a level that's quite moving as well. The whole thing's got the subtle "beyond language" power of some of the best by Caetano Veloso – even though Tom Ze is completely his own man throughout. The set features arrangements from Jose Briamonte, production from Heraldo Do Monte, and titles that include a rootsy take on "A Felicidade", plus the nutty instrumental "Toc", and the original tracks "So", "Ma", "Vai", "Ui", "Indice", "Hein", and "Mae".

Tom ZeImprensa Cantada ... CD
Trama/Ultra Pop, 2003. Used ... $11.99
A mad return to form for Tom Ze – the legendary Brazilian musician who's been one of the few artists to keep the flag of Tropicalia flying over the years! The set features Tom in a number of styles – rocky, quirky, folksy, electric, and always with that mad sense of humor that makes his work so enjoyable. A few of the tunes on the set were recorded live, and there's a pronounced political nature to much of the material – a fact that's immediately apparent on the anti-war track "Companheiro Bush", but which bubbles nicely through most of the album as well. Titles include "DesenRock-se", "Dona Divergencia", "Sem Saia Sem Cera Censura", "Urgente Pela Paz", "Bate Boca", "Voce E O Mel", "Sao Sao Paulo", "Lingua Brasileira", "Vaia De Bebado Nao Vale", and "Interlagos F1".

Tom ZeSerie 2 Momentos Vol 1 – Se O Caso E Chorar/Todos Os Olhos ... CD
Warner (Brazil), 1972/1973. Used ... $19.99
A collection of two wonderful early 70s albums from Tom Ze, recorded just after the Tropicalia years! Se O Caso E Chorar has a number of tracks with a samba sound at the base – but there's more than enough fantastic material to keep the record fresh, and Tom's writing is as great as ever. There's a vocal group that sings with Ze on many of the tracks on the record – but they also seem to sometimes act as a Greek chorus, in response to breakway vocal passages that are dominated by Ze. Includes the excellent baroque funky number "Dor E Dor", plus the tracks "Sonho Colorido De Um Pintor", "A Baba", "O Sandalo", "A Briga Do Edificio Italia Com O Hilton Hotel", and "Happy End". Todos Os Olhos is the record with the famous cover of a marble balanced on an asshole (!) – and it further refines Tom Ze's distinctive approach to songwriting with an over the top approach that moves far beyond the experimentation of Tropicalia! The record is incredible, with a mix of amazing songs that piece together hard percussion, spare production, quirky guitar, and some of the strangest vocals ever recorded in Brazil. Includes the tracks "Complexo De Epico", "A Noite Do Meu Bem", "Dodo E Zeze", "Brigitte Bardot", and "O Riso E A Faca". Plus the CD booklet reproduces the artwork and inserts of the original albums.

✨✧ Tom ZeRaridades ... CD
Warner (Brazil), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic collection of rare work from the young Tom Ze – obscure tracks from 7" singles, compilations, and festival performances too – all brought together as a counterpart to his full length albums on the Continental and RGE labels! As singles, a few of these tracks are maybe a bit straighter than the more experimental style of Tom's classic albums – but they've still got all these weird little twists and turns, especially as the 70s move into the mix a bit more – showing this amazing ability that Ze has to explode the format of a conventional pop presentation, all while moving a modernist agenda forward a few steps more. Titles include "Bola Pra Frente", "Silencio De Nos Dois", "Senhor Cidadao", "A Baba", "Angusta Angelica E Consolacao", "Contos De Fraldas", "Doi", "A Dama De Vermalho", "Voce Gosta", and a version of the Caetano Veloso song "Irene". Also includes two tracks arranged by Tom, sung by Betina – "Doi" and "O Anfitriao". CD

Wonderful 70s work from Tom Ze!

Os MutantesMutantes (1969) (Omplatten pressing) ... CD
Omplatten, 1969. Used ... $11.99
The second set of madness from the legendary Os Mutantes – and like the first, an album done in close collaboration with arranger/producer Rogerio Duprat, whose talents add a new level of genius to the record! The album's got a compelling mix of styles that strikes out on the very first tune – a playful pastiche that's partly postmodern, partly psychedelic, and still tremendously powerful decades later – even if you can't understand most of the lyrics! Styles are just about impossible to pin down, but that's what makes the record so unique and essential – and if you ever needed one album to convince you of the mindblowing energy taking place during the Tropicalia years, this one may well be it! A few tracks are written by Tom Ze, and titles include "Dom Quixote", "Dia 36", "Magica", "Rita Lee", "Algo Mais", "Qualquer Bobagem", and "Fuga No II". CD

It's pretty impressive – if you thought the Red Hot series was due to start cooling off after all these years think again!

✨✧ Gilberto GilGilberto Gil (1969) (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Philips/Polysom (Brazil), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The rare 3rd album by Gilberto Gil, and a key piece of the Tropicalia puzzle – one of the most wildly experimental albums from those years, and Gil's last before going into exile! The sound is much more electric than his other albums from the late 60's – and the production, songwriting, and instrumentation get very crazy at times – but never too crazy to cover up Gilberto's excellent singing, which is still as filled with feeling as ever. Arrangements are by the mighty Rogerio Duprat, who does as great a job here of balancing Gil's sensitivities as he does on Gal Costa's sublime efforts from 1969 – and the instrumentation is a weird and wonderful mix of Bahian rhythms, fuzzy guitar, and crazy electronics – all heartfelt one minute, freaked out the next. Tracks include "Cerebro Eletronico", "Volks Volkswagen Blue", "Futurivel", and "2001", which was written by Tom Ze and Rita Lee – plus the wild cut "Objecto Semi-Identificado", which is sort of a John Cage-esque track of found radio and electronics, with vocals by Gil!

Caetano, Moreno, Tom, & Zeca VelosoOfertorio Ao Vivo (Brazilian version) ... CD
Universal (Brazil), 2018. New Copy ... $19.99
A fantastic family outing from Caetano Veloso – one that has the legendary Brazilian singer working with his sons Tom, Zeca, and Moreno Veloso! Moreno's probably the one who's best known to American audiences – thanks to his fantastic legacy of sounds with Domenico and Kassin in the +2 trio – but the approach here is quite different than those records, and maybe has the warm intimacy of Caetano in some of his best stripped-down modes! All members of the family play guitar and sing, and all had a hand in directing the music – but the lineup also shifts a bit from track to track – sometimes with vocals from all four, sometimes just Caetano in duet with one of the sons, sometimes just Caetano himself. If you love Veloso when he sings with just acoustic guitar and a bit of light backing, you'll find plenty to love here – on titles that include "Oracao Ao Tempo", "Boas Vindas", "Todo Homem", "O Seu Amor", "Genipapo Absoluto", "Reconvexo", "Um Canto De Afoxe Para O Bloco Do Ile", "Forca Estranha", and "Um Passo A Frente".

Be! (Germany), 1975. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A fantastic electric session from the 70s Polish scene – a record that not only features freewheeling trumpet from Tomasz Stanko, and sweet Fender Rhodes from Adam Mackowicz, but also includes some very inventive work on drums and percussion from the great Czelaw Bartkowski! All three players are at the top of their game here – artists who have a strong knowledge of the outside territory of jazz, but also often work a bit more inside – so that their music here can be open and exploratory, but also come back to more soulful, swinging territory too! Most tracks are long, and have the sort of textural energy you'd know especially from Stanko's work – and titles include "Countdown", "Unit", "Solar", "Matce", "Ballad For Randi Hultin", "Zaduma", and "Pony Lungz".

A great set of funky blues – put together by the enigmatic Buck DD Black, an artist who we kind of have a feeling is someone else more famous – given the way that the cover and notes seem to set him up! The set's got a nice funky soul feel – lots of earthy arrangements that kind of spin off from the west coast funky bluesy soul feel of the early 70s – a bit Mel Brown, a bit Johnny Otis – with lots of bass at the bottom, nice guitar licks, a bit of horns, and take on a more righteous style that's a bit too well-done and tight to really be down home. Titles include "Stuff I Uze", "Back Home To You", "That's Why I Love You", "Only A Fool", "Miss Veegalopps", and "Love Is All". LP, Vinyl record album

Rozetta JohnsonWoman's Way – The Complete Rozetta Johnson 1963 to 1975 ... CD
Clintone/Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $12.99 18.99
The complete recordings of a crucially overlooked deep soul singer – the amazing Rozetta Johnson, a voice that should have been as big as Aretha Franklin or Gladys Knight, if there were any justice in the world! And Johnson isn't just a great singer on her own – she gets incredible help here from Sam Dees – a hell of a songwriter, and a great producer that puts Rozetta in perfect territory – a mode that's often more righteous than traditional southern soul, with some funky currents at the bottom – and an overall badass vibe that fits her vocals perfectly! There was a previous collection of Rozetta's music about a decade ago – but this set supercedes that with excellent sound and some unreleased alternate tracks, too – plus the usual top-shelf Ace/Kent presentation, which makes the collection as much of a joy to hold as it is to hear. Titles include "Mama Was A Bad Seed (alt)", "You Better Keep What You Got (alt)", "I Can Feel My Love Coming Down", "It's Been So Nice", "Personal Woman", "Chained & Bound", "Holding The Losing Hand", "Who Are You Gonna Love (Your Woman Or Your Wife)", "Mine Was Real", "A Woman's Way", "Willow Weep For Me", "That Hurts", "For That Man Of Mind", "How Can You Lose Something You Never Had", and "To Love Somebody".

Jimmy McGriffMain Squeeze ... CD
Groove Merchant/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $18.99
One of the grooviest albums ever from Jimmy McGriff – a hard-wailing session that's filled with plenty of cooking lines on the organ, and a few especially funky tracks! The groove here is tight, short, and very sharp – strongly in the mode of other post-Sue sessions by McGriff – like The Worm or other Groove Merchant sides – with a style that's often much more focused than Jimmy's earlier years, and strongly turned towards the rhythms of the tunes! A few numbers are more familiar soul jazz, but these are nicely offset by the harder funk numbers of the record – like the romping, stomping break classic "The Main Squeeze", the totally groovy "The Worm Turns", and the fast-vamping "GMI". The group features Jimmy Ponder on guitar and Connie Lester on alto sax – and other titles include "The Sermon", "Stella By Starlight", and "The Blues Train To Georgia". CD

Mar V Lus/Charly (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The full scope of genius from the legendary Alvin Cash – not just his 60s gritty groovers, but a host of later funk tracks as well – all packaged into a beautiful book-styled package! Cash is one of our favorite Chicago artists ever – a dancer by trade, but a flamboyant personality who always managed to make his way center stage – whether live or in the recording studio! The set begins with early "twine" numbers from Alvin – some romping heavy soul tracks that have a very deep bottom, and a raw sound that's equal part R&B and Chicago soul – definitely tuned towards the dancefloor crowd that was a natural fit for Cash's energy. As the set moves on, it then picks up some wicked late 60s singles for the Toddlin Town label, and also includes some excellent early 70s groovers for Sound Stage Seven – some of Alvin's hardest, heaviest numbers ever. The set features work by Alvin Cash with The Registers, Hundred Dollar Bills, The Crawlers, and Scott Brothers Orchestra – and titles include "Keep On Dancing (parts 1 & 2)", "Funky 69", "Moanin & Groanin", "Doin The Creep", "It's Party Time", "Funky Washing Machine", "Alvin's Doin His Thing", "Funky Street", "Doin The Ali Shuffle", "Whip It On Me", "The Charge", "Boston Monkey", "The Philly Freeze", "Alvin's Boogaloo", "Let's Do Some Good Timing", "The Bump", "Twine Time", "Twine Awhile", "The Barracuda", and "You Shot Me Through The Grease".

A sweetly swinging seventies set from pianist Tommy Flanagan – one of those records that's a perfect balance between the bop-inspired dexterity of his work on the keyboard, and that undeniable warmth he always brought to his best recordings! Tommy's got maybe a bit more bite on the keys, especially when moving at a quicker pace – and backing is by George Mraz on bass, whose round tones emphasize the warmer elements, and Elvin Jones on drums – who may well be part of the reason for the bite! The set features a number of bop classic tunes – like "Oleo", "Confirmation", and "Relaxin At Camarillo" – plus the great title cut "Eclypso", and a moody reading of Tom McIntosh's excellent "The Cup Bearers".

A fantastic collection of Ethiopian funk – rare singles from the late 60s and early 70s – all brought together as an amazing illustration of a time when the scene was really on fire! The music here has this incredible resonance between ancient and modern – local and global – as older instrumental modes and singing styles get inflected with drums, basslines, and horn parts that are strongly influenced by American funk and soul – all at a level that makes for one of the most mindblowing mixes of music you'll ever hear! The "stompers" in the title is very well-chosen – as many of these grooves are maybe even more floor-shaking than conventional funk – with a different rhythmic structure than American styles, but an end result that's even more powerful overall. Titles include "Ewnetegna Feker" by Hirut Bekele, "Endiet Zengeshiw" by Selomon Shibeshi, "Alkedashim" by Birkineh Wurga, "Hasabe" by Teshome Meteku, "Mela Mela" by Seifu Hohannes, "Sigibgib Joroye" by Tilahun Gessesse, "Fikrishin Eshaleyu" by Getatchew Kassa, "Alagegnhwatem" by Muluken Melesse, "Ene Yewodedquat" by Tamrat Molla, "Felagote" by Bezunesh Bekele & Bodyguard Band, "Temeles" by Hirut Bekele & Alemayehu Eshete, and "Teleyeshign" by Merawi Yohannis.

Intakt (Switzerland), 2020. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The title's a great one – a very apt description of the sorts of sounds created by the improvising duo of Tomeka Reid on cello and Alexander Hawkins on piano – as the performance has this sharp, stark approach at times – jagged sounds from either instrument, almost as bursts of spontaneity – but constellated together to form a beautiful progression of music! The work is maybe a great illustration of that way that, taken as a snapshot, free improvisation might seem like nonsense – but taken as a whole, there's an intrinsic logic that really holds together the creative magic between two very imaginative performers like this duo. Reid maybe has more of an edge than usual, and Hawkins' work on piano really lives up to the best legacy of the Intakt label – on titles that include "If Becomes Is", "Albert Ayler", "A Guess That Deepens", "Shards & Constellations", "Danced Together", and "Strange Familiar".

Brilliant work from composer/arranger/creator Joshua Abrams – one of the most creative figures to come out of the Chicago scene in the past couple decades – no hyperbole necessary! On Represencing Josh is largely working with the guimbri – the North African traditional string instrument – plus a bit of organ, harps, and bells – used sparely alongside the core instrument. The guimbri gives the record an earthy, traditional base – as Abrams reaches out to inspire a lager ensemble that includes Chad Taylor on drums and gong, Nicole Mitchell on flute, Michael Zerang on tambourine, Jeff Parker and Emmett Kelly on guitars, Tomeka Reid on cello, David Boykin on tenor sax, and Jason Stein on bass clarinet – all familiar players, with whom Abrams has worked often – coming together here with a very spiritual vibe.

"Superman" is a sweet disco number with lots of strings, heavy rhythms at the bottom, and an erotic vocal that seems to offer the big guy more action than Lois Lane ever did. The rest of the tracks follow in a similar sleaze disco mode, and titles include "Smile", "It's Sad", "Hurt Me Hurt Me", "One Love", and "Closer Closer". CD features lots of bonus tracks – "Smile (alt mix)", "Hurt Me Hurt Me (alt mix)", "It's Sad (alt mix)", and 7" mixes of "Superman" and "One Love". CD

Circle City BandCircle City Band ... CD
Circle City/Luv N' Haight, Early 80s. New Copy ... $5.99 16.98
Rare work from the Circle City Band – the first-ever full length album from the group – and a set that brings together their few club singles and a host of previously unreleased tracks! The CCB are well remembered for the roller skating jam "Magic" – and the rest of this set is equally great – with lots of bouncing basslines, snapping beats, and warmly soulful grooves that really sparkle with lots of early 80s funky touches – from the sweet keyboards over the top right down to the crackling rhythms on the bottom! The package is a great discovery – one of those moments when you realize there's a lot more to a group than you'd ever heard before – and the album's way more than a reissue, given the treasure trove of previously unheard 80s grooves in the set! Titles include "Love", "Time Tunnel", "Hello Stranger", "Magic", "Gladiators", "My Place", "Party Lights", "Lonely", and "Hold On". CD

Buck GriffinLet's Elope Baby ... CD
MGM/Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $13.99 24.99
Overlooked Texas genius from Buck Griffin – a singer who first recorded for the famous Lin label, then got a shot at the bigtime on MGM! Buck's maybe the epitome of a local vocal star – a singer who was on the radio daily, and who was able to absorb the best of the bigger early 50s acts – then sling things forth with a spirit that was all his own – this great mix of heartbreaking vocals and hard-edge twang – which worked equally well on the mellow cuts and the more upbeat numbers! There's some occasional rocking guitar in the mix, which only further emphasizes the strength of Buck's vocals – and although many of these tracks are later than the classic years, there's a strong hillbilly vibe on many of the numbers. Titles include "Go Stop Go", "Broken Heart With Alimony", "Stutterin Papa", "Girl In 1209", "Meadowlark Boogie", "Cochise", "Let's Elope Baby", "Next To Mine", "Lookin For The Green", "Twenty Six Steps", and "First Man To Stand On The Moon".

Fumio KarashimaHot Islands ... CD
King/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... About January 20, 2021
A more electric album than usual from pianist Fumio Karashima – but in a great way too! The album has Karashima playing Fender Rhodes, mini-moog, and other keys – in addition to his usual acoustic piano – in a driving quartet lineup with bass from Miroslav Vitous and saxes from Mabumi Yamaguchi! The sound is different than Karashima's acoustic work – a bit bolder and sometimes more spacey – but the record still strongly displays his warmth and imagination, especially on original compositions – and although in a common fusion mode of the time, there's a sense of subtlety here that we can really appreciate. A few tracks get a bit funky at the bottom, and titles include "Breeze", "American Tango", "By Road", "Hot Islands", "Chardin Square", and "Merry Go Round". CD

Karel KrautgartnerKK2 ... LP
Supraphon (Czechoslovakia), 1965. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $29.99
A stunning set from 60s Prague – a hard-swinging big band session with plenty of modern touches, and a nice little groove at the bottom! The album's got the non-traditional feel of the best work from the time by Gustav Brom – playfully mixing hard rhythms, soaring ensemble passages, and broken-out solo work – making for a set that's got the freeness of the best MPS/Saba work from the time. Alto saxophonist Karel Krautgartner is at the head of the group, and the tunes have plenty of room for his sharp solos – played in a "filled with fire" mode that almost reminds us of Phil Woods in the way he was really taking off at the time! Other players include Karel Velebny on vibes, Laco Deczi on trumpet, and Rudolf Roki on piano – and tunes are all original, with a sound that's as exciting as their titles – and titles include "Jazz Cult", "31 Degrees Above Zero", "Models", "Out Of A Blue Sky", "In The Traffic", and "Ex". Really great stuff – with a modern conception, and undeniable groove! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ramsey LewisFunky Serenity/Golden Hits/Solar Wind/Sun Goddess ... CD
Columbia/BGO (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Just Sold Out!
A quadruple-header from Ramsey Lewis – four albums from his great 70s electric period on Columbia Records! First up is Funky Serenity – sweet electric funk from Ramsey Lewis! The album's one of his best from the 70s – and it's got Ramsey on Fender Rhodes, electric harpsichord, and other keyboards, grooving away in an open-ended 70s mode that still retains all the heavy soul of his classic work for Chess. Morris Jennings adds in some very nice percussion with his drum work, and Cleveland Eaton's on funky bass, giving the set a strong bottom groove. Features the sublime sample cut "My Love For You", a great version of "Knights In White Satin" that's done with a weird spacey groove, plus the tracks "Kufany Mapenzi (Making Love)", "Serene Funk", "What It Is!", and "Dreams". Golden Hits isn't a "best of", but instead has Ramsey and his funky mid 70s trio with Morris Jennings and Cleveland Eaton revisiting some of his best loved material from the Cadet years, but with the groovy Rhodes and wah wah sound that we dig so much about his CBS recordings. Unlike some of the other records from this period, the group's nice and stripped down, just the electric piano, bass and drums, so the groove's nice and wide open, Ramsey and company popping along with the sanctified soulful vibe of his 60s work, but updating their sound with some nice electric touches. 9 numbers in all: "Hang On Sloopy", "Blues For The Night Owl", "Hi-Heel Sneakers", "Carmen", "Delilah", "Wade In The Water", "Slippin' Into Darkness", "Somethin' You Got", and "The In Crowd". Solar Wind was cut smack dab in the middle of Ramsey's glory days at Columbia Records – with great production help and work on bass from the mighty Cleveland Eaton! The style is nice and lean, with just some occasional fuller touches – and Ramsey plays plenty of Fender Rhodes, in addition to bits of Arp and moog too – in a setting that's mostly trio, with a few guest players stepping into the mix from track to track! There's a nice degree of fuzz at points, thanks to added help from Steve Cropper – and titles include a great funky version of "Summer Breeze", plus "Solar Wind", "Come Down In Time", "Love for A Day", "Hummingbird", "Jamaican Marketplace", and "Sweet & Tender You". Sun Goddess is one of our favorite Ramsey Lewis albums ever – and a perfect summation of the genius that was brewing on the Chicago scene in the late 60s and early 70s! The album has Ramsey working strongly with Earth Wind & Fire – no surprise, given his close ties to Maurice White, who was the drummer in Ramsey's trio before starting his own group – and the shared relationship both artists had with producer Charles Stepney! The three were all key parts of the late 60s sound at Chess Records – but here, they've brought the same soulful energy to Columbia – working in a wider, more mature groove for the 70s – one that has Lewis' wicked Fender Rhodes lines stretching out strongly over tight, compressed, funky lines from EWF! The centerpiece of the set is the massive 7 minute "Sun Goddess", but there's lots of other nice ones like "Living For The City", "Gemini Rising", and "Jungle Strut". Funky, electric, and sublimely wonderful all the way through! CD

Early early work from Willie Mitchell – sides recorded way before his more famous work on Hi Records, with a decidedly different feel! This work is much more in a Memphis R&B mode overall – lots of romping, jumping rhythms – topped with either early soul vocals, or some sweet instrumental lines on tenor sax or trumpet – all with the rough edges and deep tones you'd expect to hear on vintage R&B from a label like King! The Four Kings harmonize on some cuts, and the package features a whopping 29 titles in all – with tracks that include "One Mint Julep", "Tell It To Me Baby", "Hokin", "Rag Mop", "I Want You For Myself", "Tanya", "Come Back To Me", "Thirty Five Thirty", "Yvonne", "Bongo Beat", "Stroll", and "The Crawl".

Impulse, 1967. Very Good Gatefold ... $6.99
A unique little outing for Oliver Nelson – one that breaks him out of the familiar territory of the studio, and puts him in a much more spontaneous live setting! Nelson's playing soprano sax on the album – using the instrument in an edgey way that has echoes of Coltrane, yet which also fits in nicely with the usual Nelson groove – a fully soulful approach to a larger ensemble, heard famously on countless sessions for other artists in the 60s, but even better hear with Oliver at the helm! Other players on the record include Bobby Bryant, Tom Scott, Frank Strazzeri, Mel Brown, and Lou Blackburn – coming together with Nelson in a hip take on the west coast soul jazz groove of the time. Titles include Nelson's own "Miss Fine" and "Guitar Blues", plus lively versions of "Night Train" and "Milestones". LP, Vinyl record album

The album's no breakout for the Pointer Sisters, as the trio were already at the top of the charts when the set was released – but the whole thing does find a great way to keep the grooves coming in the group's lasting relationship with producer Richard Perry! There's plenty of 80s elements here – basslines, beats, and keyboards – moving the group way past some of the club and pop modes of the 70s – and keeping them perfectly poised for long-term crossover fame for years to come! Case in point is the album's long-running hit "Jump (For My Love)", nestled alongside other cuts that include "Automatic", "I'm So Excited", "I Need You", "Neutron Dance", "Easy Persuasion", "Baby Come And Get It", "Telegraph Your Love", and "Operator". This fully loaded 2011 2CD Big Break UK edition features the full 1983 and 1984 editions (the latter with a remixes) and more than a dozen addition alternate versions and 12" dance mixes. 34 tracks on 2CDs!

One of the greatest soundtracks ever from the mighty Piero Umiliani – sounds initially written for a film that was an international "sexpose" of daily life in Sweden – but which have grown to even greater fame on their own over the years – thanks to the talent of the maestro! The music here is awash in groovy elements – lots of sweet Hammond organ lines, mod basslines, and some especially cool wordless vocals from the choir of Alessandro Alessandroni – scatting away in a great way alongside the instruments, and bringing an added level of breathy eroticism to the whole thing! This special LP version recreates the original Omicron release of the record – with titles that include the two lyrical tracks "You Tried To Warn Me" and "Sleep Now Little One", sung by Lydia McDonald – plus the tracks "Topless Party", "Eva Svedense", "Essere Donna", "La Signora Cameriera", "FotoModelle", and "Le Ragazze Dell'Archipellago". (Note, does not contain the track "Mah Na Mah Na", which is on other versions of the soundtrack – but it appears on the "partner" reissue of Umiliani's Psichedelica from Schema, under the title "Viva La Sauna Svedese".)

Heavy, classic styled funk & soul from Laura Vane & The Vipertones – really killing it in a similar vein as some of our favorite female fronted, blue-eyed female fronted UK funk – but it an even harder grooving, grittier and anthemic mode! It's pretty heavy on the bottom end, thanks to some some hard hitting drums and percussion, with a mod soul touches and Motown indebted moments. Laura's vocals are gritty and sweet at the same time, with a genuine skill and depth, and the players are great, too. Definitely worth checking out for fans Kylie Auldist, Lizzy Parks and Alice Russell! Titles include the killer mission statement of an opener, "Roof Off" (as in tearing the), plus "Steam", "Am In Dreaming?", "Did It Anyway", "No Words", "Good Morning", "Mean Lover" "So Much Love", "The Squeeze" and more.

A heady dose of music from a key year in the British scene – a moment when all the changes that had taken place in pop music during the tail end of the 80s were really coming home to roost – to change the sound and style of the indie world a fair bit since the initial C86 compilation! By 1990, the beats of the Summer Of Love and the growing wave of psychedelic elements were really hitting home – mixed with all the smarter songwriting styles that had come into play, and a genre-crossing love of the groove and strong ear for catchy lyrics – modes that were never too commercial, but really showed a focus and tunefulness that the scene hadn't had at the start of the previous decade. This 3CD set is awash in key cuts from 1990 – all handled with the detailed notes and overstuffed tracklist that made the previous volumes so great – 63 tracks in all, with work by Saint Etienne, World Of Twist, Flowered Up, Manic Street Preachers, The La's, The Steamkings, The Ogdens, Mongtomery Clifts, Hey Paulette, Life With Patrick, Mousefolk, Greenhouse, Action Painting, The Charlatans, Thousand Yard Stare, Spiritualized, The Popinjays, New Fast Automatic Daffodils, Heavenly, Spacemen 3, Bark Psychosis, Ned's Atomic Dustbin, Ocean Colour Scene, and many more.

The kids on the cover might look pretty mainstream, but the sounds on the record are in the best tradition of rockabilly and hillbilly styles of the Bear Family label! The set's overflowing with romping little gems that work equally well far from a dancefloor filled with gals in skirts and guys in cardigans – raw rockers that sound wonderful after all these years, and which show that there's plenty to discover in the 50s and 60s scenes, way past the hits! You'll recognize a few of these names, but in the best Bear Family style, the tunes included are much more obscure – and laid out next to great work by lesser-known gems too – presented with wonderful sound, and very detailed notes.

Atco/Wounded Bird, 1970. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the stranger albums on Atlantic at the start of the 70s – but a surprising hit as well! The group are a batch of Philly studio players who serve up instrumental versions of late 60s rock numbers, plus some of their own bits – all recording at the Sigma Sound studios, with arrangements from Richard Rome and Tom Sellers! It's our guess that some of the players are names we'd recognize from later 70s Philly soul – but here, they're working in a unique space that's partly fuzz instrumental, partly a bit more sensitive too – renditions that go way past the usual "let's remake the hits" style of other records, thanks to the arrangements. Titles include "Overture From Tommy", "Ohio", "Where The Woodbine Twineth", "Woodstock", "Mr Peppercorn", "Twenty Four Hours From Tulsa", and "While My Guitar Gently Weeps". CD

Volt, 1971. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An album that's every bit as great as the title might imply – heavy guitar-based funk from the second version of The Bar-Kays – one that uses the new instrumental focus to push a groove that's much more black rock than before! There's still a bit of trumpet from the past, but the sound here is much heavier on the bottom – and really fuzzes up the guitar nicely at times to create a hipper sort of soul instrumental vibe! The rhythms are quite hip too – with echoes of the experiments in soul going on at Stax in the work of Isaac Hayes and others – and the album's miles away from the work that the group was laying down a few years before! Definitely one of the hardest-hitting Stax albums of the early 70s – and filled with great tracks like "You Don't Know Like I Know", "Dance To The Music", "Piece Of Your Peace", "Montego Bay", and "Baby I Love You".

Muse/32 Jazz, 1977/1979. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Nothing too mad here, Alto Madness is a wonderful record that really shows the genius of Richie Cole in the 70s! Cole on Muse is a wonderful combination – sharp-edged alto sax, rooted in tradition – but let loose on some freer soul jazz modes as well, really showing the strong jazz underground that was bubbling strongly at the time. Cole's alto is set up beautifully with rhythm from Harold Mabern on piano, Rick Laird or Steve Gilmore on bass, and Eddie Gladden on drums – and the record also features percussion from Ray Mantill and guitar from Vic Juris – both players who shape the sound of the record differently than you might expect. As on other Cole records of the time, Eddie Jefferson makes a great guest appearance – singing wonderfully on "Moody's Mood 78" and "The Common Touch" – the latter of which is a great lost bit of Jefferson from the 70s. Other cuts include "Cole's Nocturne", "The Price Is Right", "Remember Your Day Off", and "Last Tango In Paris". Hollywood Madness, a great example of the Muse Records charm of altoist Richie Cole – bop-fired creativity at its peak, mixed with some added contemporary elements to keep things fresh! In this case, Richie's horn takes on some key bop classics, but also opens up a bit with vocalsits too – Eddie Jefferson on versions of "Hi Fly", "Relaxin At Camarillo", and "Waiting For Waits" – the latter of which also features Tom Waits as well! The Manhattan Transfer make some subtle guest appearances too – but in ways that are much more restrained than their own albums, really leaving most room for Richie's horn. Bruce Forman plays guitar and Dick Hindman piano – and titles include "Hi Fly", "Relaxin At Camarillo", "Hooray For Hollywood", "I Love Lucy", "Malibu Breeze", "Waiting For Waits", and "Tokyo Rose Sings The Hollywood Blues".

Roger Glenn's a funky flute player with a really great groove – California groovy, with just a touch of Latin – served up here with some great Mizell-infused touches – that rolling rhythm on the bottom, soaring instrumentation on the top, and some great Latin elements that are wrapped up warmly in the fusion! There's plenty of great keyboards, too – played both by Larry Mizell, and also by Mark Soskin – a range of Fender Rhodes, Arp, mini-moog, and more – all adding in the right sort of warmth to Roger's flute, and the album's rich array of percussion. Titles include "Kick", "Reachin", "Rio", "Gloria", "Overtime", and "Don't Leave". CD

✨✧ Mistura PuraBlue Bus ... LP
Ubiquity, 2020. New Copy 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Mistura Pura, aka Federica Grappasonni, is as much of a vinyl collector as a producer and musician – and that depth of musical interest really comes through in this double length set! The tracks have lots of elements that draw on styles from the 60s and 70s – but the beats are often quicker, and the overall sound a bit clubbier – yet still has a vibe that's very original overall, and which hardly sounds like easy remix remakes of tracks from back in the day! There's lots of live instrumentation throughout – Fender Rhodes, Hammond, acoustic bass, flute, tenor, and plenty of percussion – all reworked by Federica, who adds in more percussion and keyboards too. Titles include "Midnight For Tommy", "Artistry In Rhythm (Mistura Pura rework)", "Stop Into The Bossa", "Summer Breeze", "Puerto Rican Blues (Mistura Pura rework)", "Street Beat", "African Circles", and "A Prayer For Odara".

Motown/Kent (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first Motown full length record by the Spinners – Original Spinners from '67 – followed by an impeccably well-chosen collection of bonus material! It's excellent stuff – an overlooked album with some very hard to find Motown work by this early version of the legendary Spinners – with lead vocals by Bobby Smith and Edgar Edwards. The tracks have a mixture of sweet and raw harmonies – crafted with an elegantly soulful sound that would later take the group way over the top during the 70s, and which here sounds sublime next to some of the group's Motown contemporaries! The first 12 tracks on this excellent Kent compilation are the Original Spinners tracklist – including "Sweet Thing", "I Cross My Heart", "I'll Always Love You", "Truly Yours", "Like A Good Man Should", "For All We Know", "How Can I", "It Hurts To Be In Love", "Nobody Else But You", "Where Is That Girl", "Tomorrow May Never Come" and "That's What Girls Are Made For". Most of the 14 bonus tracks are previously unreleased masters – revelatory stuff from earlier in the 60s – formative, yet beautifully realized recordings with productions by Harvey Fuqua and Ivy Joe Hunter! Titles include "Darling", "Words Can't Describe", "12 O'Clock", "Just Another Guy", "We're Gonna Be More More Than Friends" and more. CD

With a name like Strange Terrors, you know this stuff's going to be creepy – and the rare comics within definitely live up to that promise! The publication is one of the most obscure from the world of postwar horror comics – and features lots of weird and unusual work from those late years right before the comics code was put in place to stomp out material like this – spooky stories of the supernatural, presented here in full color reproductions of the entire issues – including the fantastic covers, and even the vintage ads too! This second volume is from a period when the publication morphed into a 25 cent, triple-sized format – so it's like getting six comics in all – with artwork from Lou Cameron, Joe Kubert, Bill Molno, Pete Morisi, AC Hollingsworth, and Bernard Baily.

The third dose of music in the Good Good series – and every bit as cosmic as the first two! Beats are plenty skittish here – often broken, but moving towards some of the warmer styles the London scene was seeing as its influence was moving out into more global corridors at the start of the 21st Century – a really rich extension of some of the spaciest, jazziest elements of the post-jungle scene – served up with a tremendous amount of soul overall!

BBE (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 4CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
John Morales has a wonderful talent for taking a funky track and making it sound even funkier – which he does beautifully here in this killer collection of old school tunes! Many of the numbers are vintage clubby soul from the late 70s and early 80s – and Morales has this great way of crystalizing all the best elements in the songs, and pulling them to the forefront – but all without ever ruining the integrity of the tracks that sounded so great in the first place! In other words, the work here isn't the imprint of some young DJ trying to overstate his presence – but a true music maestro who really knows what makes a club track great – a vibe that takes us back to the brilliant edits of the early NYC scene. All titles here are previously unreleased – and the massive 4CD set features titles that include Morales mixes of "I'm Gonna Love You Just A Little More Baby" by Barry White, "You Got Me Running" by Lenny Williams, "Mind On You" by Level 42, "Vertigo/Relight My Fire" by Dan Hartman, "Lovergirl" by Teen Marie, "Standing Right Here" by Mannix, "Love Is The Message" by MFSB, "Let The Music Play" by Barry White, "Don't Leave Me This Way" by Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, "Funkin For Jamaica" by Tom Browne, "All Night" by Katzuma, "Hi Tension" by Hi Tension, "Girl You Need A Change Of Mind" by Eddie Kendricks, "Before I Let Go" by Frankie Beverly, "Got To Be Real" by Cheryl Lynn, "Star Love" by Three Ounces Of Love", "You Stepped Into My Life" by Melba Moore, "Life Is A Song Worth Singing" by Teddy Pendergrass, "Walk Away From Love" by David Ruffin, "Life Goes On" by The Jones Girls, "This Time Baby" by Jackie Moore, "Turn Me Up" by Keith Barrow, "Circles" by Atlantic Starr, "Joy & Pain" by Maze, "Stay" by The Controllers, "Take Me Home" by Cher, and "Can't Live Without Your Love" by Tamiko Jones.

Inner City/BBE (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An overdue look at the great range of sounds that came from Inner City Records at the end of the 70s – a hip American indie with a strong specialty in soulful fusion, hip vocalists, and a range of other great styles too – all brought together here by London DJ Kev Beadle! Inner City's often a bit overlooked – as the label flourished most strongly in the years after some of the better-known soulful imprints of the 70s – and the label always had a great ear for new sounds, fresh ideas, and the kind of compelling global elements that often led them to license key tracks from overseas, and bring them to the US market. This collection's heavy on singers – the kind of cool, underground jazz vocalists that Inner City captured so well – and it's also got a nice mix of funky fusion, modal numbers, and spiritual currents – on titles that include "The Other World" by Judy Roberts, "Hunt Up Wind" by Hiroshi Fukumura, "Vera Cruz" by Helen Merrill, "Lucky Southern" by Tom Lellis, "Quickie Nirvana" by Kellis Ethridge, "Samba De La Cruz" by Terumasa Hino, "So High" by Janet Lawson, "The Samba" by Jeff Lorber, "Return Of The Prodigal Son" by Joe Lee Wilson, "Shenkansen" by Urszula Dudziak, "To An Elfin Princess" by Charlie Mariano, "Pandora" by Carlos Franzetti, and "Jennine" by Eddie Jefferson.

Nascente (UK), 1970s/1980s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An excellent collection of funky tracks from South Africa – most of them with a slightly different feel than work you'd get on other Afro Funk compilations – and we mean that in a good way, too! Some of the artists are names you'd recognize from later recordings of the big South African crossover years of the 80s and 90s – but they're represented here by harder, edgier cuts from the early days – and mixed up with some more obscure acts, too – which really helps bring a freshness to the set, especially given the interweaving of genres that goes on – as you might guess from the extended sub-title of the CD! Titles include "Sangoma" by Malombo, "Oh Yeh Soweto" by Teaspoon & The Waves, "Intombi Ibhinca Isidwaba" by Phuzushukela, "Kikzelani" by Nelcy Sedibe, "Hula Hoop Jive" by Kataki, "Andromeda" by Chris McGregor's Brotherhood Of Breath, "Malume" by Abafakasi, "Baloyi" by Dudu Pukwana & Spear, "Lily's Express" by Gwigwi Mrwebi, "Wozan Mahipi" by Mahlathini & Mahotella Queens, and "Bayeza" by Soul Brothers.

Universal, 1971. Used 6 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Soulful southern rock at its absolute finest – and the Allman Brothers at their peak! The 1971 Fillmore East Recordings box set puts together performances from a legendary series of concerts the band played that year – originally serving as the source material for the classic At Fillmore East live album, but as geniunely great as that album is, it only hints at the expansive improvisational genius that happened live on stage. This set does a terrific job of putting that on display – and it's brilliant stuff! The 6CD version is jam-packed with both consise tunes and freewheeling jams – all recorded by Tom Dowd – on March 12 and March 13 (2 sets each night), plus a closing show on June 27. Includes "Statesboro Blues", "Trouble No More", "Don't Keep Me Wondering", In Memory Of Elisabeth Reed", "Midnight Rider", "One Way Out", "Stormy Monday", "Hot 'Lanta", "You Don't Love Me", "Whipping Post", "Mountain Jam" and "Drunk Hearted Boy" – many running WELL north of the of the 10 minutes mark – as Allmans will be Allmans.

✨✧ Catherine HoweWhat A Beautiful Place ... CD
Reflection/Numero, 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful early 70s debut LP from a then 20-year-old, Halifax reared Catherine Howe – produced and arranged by US jazz pianist Bobby Scott in a mode that manages to feel lush and opulent while never belying Catherine's warmth, intimacy and maturity – and quite possibly the best unearthed singer-songwriter folk gem we've heard in years! The sound is warmly baroque, and Catherine's lovely vocals and evocative songwriting style is sheerly natural – recorded in a fairly stripped down setting and fleshed out with strings by the London Symphony Orchestra. The mix of intimacy and grandeur makes the record a bit of stylistic cousin to Nick Drake's Bryter Layter – we take our Drake seriously and we don't throw that comparison out lightly! Released by a doomed Reflection Records, which closed up shop the same year, it was pretty much automatically relegated to obscurity. Now, thankfully is a fertile time for the rediscovery post 60s folkish gems – and this one is at the very top of the line. Would you expect anything less from the Numero Group? Titles include "Up North", "On A Misty Morning", "Nothing More Than Strangers", "My Child", "The Innocence Of A Child", "It Comes With The Breezes" and more – plus the bonus demo "In The Hot Summer" – which led to the next phase of Catherine's career at RCA.

Blue Note, 1976. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
Wonderful work from Horace Silver – part of a great run of late 70s sides for Blue Note that unlock a whole new side of his soulful talents! The vibe here is different than the previous United States trilogy – still very righteous, with an overt message too – but served up in these wonderfully warm tones – with loads of great woodwind passages over these wickedly angular rhythms – grooves that are somewhat like those Silver first started forging on his 27th Man album! The arrangements are sublime – and on some cuts handled by Silver, but orchestrated by Wade Marcus – with players who include Tom Harrell on trumpet, Bob Berg on tenor, Buddy Collette and Fred Jackson on flutes, and Jerome Richardson on soprano sax. The rhythm section is key, too – and features Ron Carter on bass and Al Foster on drums! Side one features "The Tranquilizer Suite" – with passages that icnlude "Keep On Getting Up", "Time & Effort", and "Perseverance & Endurance" – and side two includes the excellent "The Process Of Creation Suite" – with "Motivation", "Activation", and "Assimilation".

Northern soul from the source – over two dozen 60s soul stompers from Motown Records – most of them the kind of underground grooves that have always been prized on the Northern scene! The work here moves past obvious Motown hits, and really shows the kind of hard-burning stormers that set fire to the British all night dance scene in the 60s – music that moved the mods, then continued to help redefine our understanding of soul for decades to come! The set's a treasure trove of gems – some of which would cost you a pretty penny as original singles – and titles include "For The Love Of Mike" by Patrice Holloway, "You Can Do It" by Kim Weston, "Crying In The Night" by The Monitors, "Baby Come Home To Me" by Shorty Long, "Sure Is A Lotta Woman" by The Isley Brothers, "You're Gonna Love My Baby" by Barbara McNair, "I've Been Blessed" by Bobby Taylor, "Look What You Done Boy" by The Lollipops, "I Miss You Baby" by Marv Johnson, and "Keep On Loving Me" by Frances Nero.

The original Barely Real is either a generously portioned EP or a mini-LP – with 6 tracks that deliver on the promise of the preceding Frigid Stars LP – while also showing an evolving approach. The core trio of Chris Brokaw, John Engle and Stephen Immerwahr get an assist from Jon Fine on "Jr" – who lays down an additional wave of noisy guitar texture. David Grubbs contributes the solo piano and arrangement of the song "W." – a cool collaboration and a nice little creative side-step of Codeine's now-established sound!

✨✧ Gene PageHot City/Lovelock ... CD
Atlantic/BGO (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A pair of 70s soul classics from arranger Gene Page – back to back on a single CD! First up is Hot City – an excellent album of Barry White-styled instrumentals – put together by Barry's right hand man Gene Page, and produced by Barry himself! The record's one of the best that Gene Page ever cut – apart from his seminal blacksploitation soundtracks – and it's very much in the mode of White's Love Unlimited Orchestra albums from the same time, although perhaps with less of a string section – and more of an emphasis on funky drums at the bottom. Players are an all-star cast of LA studio groovers that includes David T Walker and Ray Parker on guitar, Ernie Watts and Wilton Felder on saxes, and Clarence McDonald on keyboards – and tracks are mostly originals by Page and White. Titles include "Jungle Eyes", "She's My Main Squeeze", "I Am Living In A World Of Gloom", "Satin Soul", and "To The Bone". Lovelock features Gene Page at the height of his 70s powers – using all the talents he forged as a background artist for other soul talents, and all the majesty he added to his soundtrack work – all focused nicely into a sweet set of warmly soulful grooves! The style's a bit clubby, but also has some wider depth too – maybe an undercurrent of fusion that comes from players like Lee Ritenour and David T Walker on guitar, Joe Sample and Sonny Burke on keyboards, and Oscar Brasher on trumpet – who find a way to work wonderfully alongside the albums vocals from singers Merry Clayton, Edna Wright, and Jim Gilstrap – all with a style that's not unlike some of the best Quincy Jones material of the time! As with Quincy, there's a sense of care and confidence that really holds the album together – on titles that include "Higher My Love", "Organ Grinder", "Into My Thing", "Wild Cherry", "Fantasy Woman", "Straw In the Wind", and "Together Whatever".

The music is jazz, but of the most forward-thinking type – and titles include "Ma & Dad", "Fred Anderson & A Half", "Twelve Eighteen West", "Georgia", "Spocky Chainsey Has Re-Emerged", "The One Who Endures", "Baker's Dozen", "View From The Moon", "You Are Free To Choose", "Paris", "Collant Denier", and "Sprouts".

The music here all draws heavily from American funk and psych styles – and often uses some slightly different instrumentation, or more regional inflection – to make the usual psych funk styles sound even more groovy and exotic – in a mindblowing way that makes the entire set a real musical delight! Most tracks are instrumental – heavy on drums and fuzzy guitar – but there's a few vocal moments, too – and the funk current is super-strong, way more so than on other collections that promise a heavy bottom, but usually just present offbeat psych. Titles include "Jet Pop" by Bana Pop Band, "Foxy Lady" by 49th Blue Streak, "Karate Chop" by The Tijuana Brats, "Stari Dvorac" by Pro Arte, "Nie Przejziemy Do Historii" by Krzysztof Klenczon, "Louis Louis" by Friar Tuck, "Time Of Machines" by Sergio Ferraresi, and "The Shaman's Dance" by Alexandr Sergeyevich.

The selection of songs is as thoughtful as the long, well-crafted liner notes – and the music here comes from an assortment of rare singles from the farther reaches of the gospel recording world in the late 60s and 1970s – almost all of it very localized, as you might guess from the title – and with a very strong focus on our fabulous city of Chicago. Titles include "Rocky Roady" by Joanne & Sonny, "Black Pride" by Rev HH Harrington, "No Other Love" by Messiahs Of Glory, "I Want You To Help Me" by Travelers Of Zion, "Christ Rose" by Rev John Thomas, "Try Jesus" by Gospel Carolets, and "The Number" by Wondering Gails.

✨✧ Monday MichiruBrasilified Nights ... CD
Hydra (Japan), 2014. Used ... Out Of Stock
Monday Michiru returns to one of our favorite modes from her early years – collaborative grooves cut with some of the best talents of the underground – all of whom breathe incredible new life into her Brasilified album! We loved that record to death – and so did most of you – but the work here is almost even better – as it brings Monday's soulful vocals back to the sort of grooves that first won her fame on the international scene – as the jazz and Brazilian elements of the core record are still held intact, but the rhythms are wonderfully varied, and move seamlessly into a clubby vibe too – thanks to work by Little Louie Vega, Yukihiro Fukutomi, Steal Vibe, Black Edition, Zero DB, and others! Yet there's also a surprisingly unified feel to the record too – no jumps in spirit and sound from track to track – and we attribute that not just to the work of the remixers, but also to their respect of Michiru's music. Titles include "Brasilified (Yukihiro Fukutomi rmx)", "Bossamore (Zero DB rmx)", "Zanzibar (Louie Vega EOL mix)", "New Morning (Black Edition rmx)", "Sunrise (Steal Vybe's journey into the sun rmx)", and "Celebrate (Blk Mrks main room navigation mix)".

✨✧ Gene PageHot City (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Atlantic/FTG, 1974. Used ... Out Of Stock
An excellent album of Barry White-styled instrumentals – put together by Barry's right hand man Gene Page, and produced by Barry himself! The record's one of the best that Gene Page ever cut – apart from his seminal blacksploitation soundtracks – and it's very much in the mode of White's Love Unlimited Orchestra albums from the same time, although perhaps with less of a string section – and more of an emphasis on funky drums at the bottom. Players are an all-star cast of LA studio groovers that includes David T Walker and Ray Parker on guitar, Ernie Watts and Wilton Felder on saxes, and Clarence McDonald on keyboards – and tracks are mostly originals by Page and White. Titles include "Jungle Eyes", "She's My Main Squeeze", "I Am Living In A World Of Gloom", "Satin Soul", and "To The Bone". Bonus tracks include 7" versions of "Satin Soul" and "All Our Dreams Are Coming True". CD

✨✧ Pat Thomas & Ebo TaylorPat Thomas & Ebo Taylor ... LP
Terrestrial Funk, 1984. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A great singer and a great guitarist – both coming together here in a set that's got way more going on than you'd expect! The group here is tight – lots of congas and bass at the bottom, peppered with horns from a trio, while Ebo Taylor lays down both rhythm and lead guitars – carving out this perfect groove that's richly melodic, but still lean and funky – sometimes with almost a Caribbean sort of vibe, at least in the way the songs explode with color and tone! All tracks are long, and the lead vocals from Pat Thomas are augmented by Paa Joe – on titles that include "Amponsah", "Benya Amanze", "Oye Odo", and "Bue Me". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousDaisies – Original Soundtrack To The Groundbreaking Czech New Wave Classic (white with yellow yolk vinyl pressing) ... LP
Finders Keepers (UK), 1966. New Copy ... $26.99
An amazing soundtrack to an amazing film – a Czech new wave classic that's supported by sounds as dynamic as the images on the screen! There's a really playful feel to the whole thing – much more so than other Finders Keepers reissues in recent years – and the music jumps along in a mix of military moments, folkloric elements, jazzy bits, and some spare, simple melodies – almost a bit like Nino Rota's best for Fellini, but a lot crazier overall! Instrumentation has some almost Moondog touches at the best points – repetitive woodwind or piano bits, with some grittier, organic elements at the bottom – and although much of the music is by the team of Jiri Suchy and Jiri Slitr, there's also other bits that crash into the mix too – almost with a surprising, abrupt sort of quality. Titles include "Peach Tree Thieves", "Threes A Crowd", "Red Carpet", "Burning Ribbons", "Girlies Girlies", "Roses Red Roses Red", "Cuckoos", "Scissors", and "Beggars Banquet". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousYou Can't Sit Down – Cameo/Parkway Dance Crazes 1958 to 1964 ... CD
Cameo/Abkco, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 12.99
A great set of groovers from the Cameo/Parkway label – a company that gave the world the biggest twist record of the 60s, but which also was perfectly poised to deliver all sorts of other upbeat tracks as well! The label was in Philly – a huge dance town in the early days of soul and rock – and the set list here is filled with the kind of cuts that were Philadelphia's answer to the rising sound of Motown – the roots of the Northern Soul sound that would be followed by soul collectors for decades! These aren't novelty hits, but upbeat cuts that groove plenty – most by soul artists, a few by pop singers – but all given the kind of tight instrumentation and strong studio handling that made the Philly scene such a standout. 22 tracks in all – including "Shimmy Shimmy" and "The Wah Watusi" by The Orlons, "Bristol Stomp" and "You Can't Sit Down" by the Dovells, "Mashed Potato Time" and "Do The Bird" by Dee Dee Sharp, "The 81" by Candy & The Kisses, "The Mash" by Tony Young & The Hippies, "Mexican Hat Rock" by The Applejacks, "Baby Do The Frog" by The Dardenelles, "The Swim (part 1)" by The Marlins, "Slow Twistin" by Chubby Checker & Dee Dee Sharp, "The Third House" by Bobby Rydell, "When You Dance" by The Turbans, "Everybody South Street" by The Taffys, "The Popeye Waddle" by Don Covay, and yes, "The Twist" by Chubby Checker.

✨✧ Eddie HazelGame, Dames, & Guitar Thangs (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Warner/Rhino Handmade, 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A massively tripped-out set of guitar-based funk – played to perfection by the legendary Eddie Hazel, best known for his work in the George Clinton P-Funk empire! The album offers a different side of Eddie's talents – one that's produced with a smoothly compressed California groove, in a mode that's almost an extension of some of the themes explored by Shuggie Otis on his own 70s albums – taken with a bit more of a P-Funk style. George Clinton produced the set with Eddie – and the tunes have a nice slow-stepping groove that really opens up the guitar solos wonderfully. The record kicks off with a massive cover of "California Dreamin" – but the whole thing's great, with a wonderfully unified feel throughout! Other titles include "Frantic Moment", "What About It?", "So Goes The Story", "Physical Love", and a great cover of "I Want You (She's So Heavy)". Plus, the CD features 4 bonus tracks – "Unkutt Funk", "Smedley Smorganoff", "Lampoc Boogie", and "From The Bottom Of My Soul". CD
