✨✧ Orchestra CometaTower Of Power ... CD
Cometa (Italy), Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Cool keyboards, moogy moments, and lots of other sweet electric touches – all served up in this rare album of sound library grooves from the Orchestra Cometa – a larger ensemble made of players who worked for the legendary Italian studio outfit! The music here is in a mid 70s funky soundtrack style – grooves that take off from American blacksploitation elements by mixing funky bottoms with fuller strings, often laced together with heavy basslines or wah wah guitar – with more than enough room for keyboards to soar over the top! Titles include "Quiet Boys", "Ambiguity", "Mad Winds", "Dopping 2000 #2", "Cremolata", "Hotel Carlton", and "Rotocalco Flash". CD

✨✧ Tower Of PowerGreat American Soulbook ... CD
Top, 2009. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Tower Of Power's one of those groups that still manages to sound great after all of these years – hitting hard on the socking soul sounds the East Bay combo first crafted back in the 70s – bringing plenty of romping rhythms and heavy horns that became their calling card over the years! The group's sound is so great, in fact, that even on a cover-heavy set like this, they still manage to bring something fresh to the table – reworking older soul tunes with a pretty classic sound overall, and getting just the right sort of production that supports their efforts. Guest vocalists here include Sam Moore, Joss Stone, and Tom Jones – but honestly, we're more partial to the group's own singer Larry Braggs, whose work on the CD is every bit as great as the bigger names. Titles include "Me & Mrs Jones", "You Met Your Match", "I Thank You", "Loveland", "Star Time", "Mr Pitiful", and "Heaven Must Be Missing An Angel". CD

✨✧ Tower Of PowerHipper Than Hip – Yesterday Today & Tomorrow – Live On The Air & In The Studio 1974 ... CD
Real Gone, 1974. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Killer work from Tower Of Power – captured live in the studio, and with a frenetic funky groove that's even tighter than some of their studio material from the time! At their core, these guys were always first and foremost a live, lively ensemble with a razor-sharp approach to funk – one that comes through beautifully here in the album's heavy drums, searing horn parts, and sharp mix of guitar and keyboard lines – equally great on the instrumental cuts and the vocal ones! The previously-unissued performance was very well-recorded in 1974 – done for WLIR radio in New York, and finally great to have out after all these years. Titles include live versions of "Oakland Stroke", "Soul Vaccination", "Clean Slate", "You're Still A Young Man", "Just When We Start Makin It", "Down To The Nightclub", "What Is Hip", "Time Will Tell", and "Squib Cakes".

✨✧ Tower Of PowerBack To Oakland ... CD
Warner, 1974. Used ... Out Of Stock
Tower Of Power are back in Oakland, after recording their previous album down south – cooking up plenty of East Bay grease with their horn-heavy groove at the height of its power! These guys were always a cut above any other band who tried for this territory – and this early version of the ensemble still features tremendous keyboard work from the mighty Chester Thompson on organ and Fender Rhodes – plus later soul legend Lenny Williams on lead vocals. The rest of the group are all in great young form too – Emilio Castillo, Steve Kupka, Greg Adams, Lenny Pickett, and the rest – and titles include "Oakland Stroke", "I Got The Chop", "Time Will Tell", "Squib Cakes", and "Man From the Past".

✨✧ Les Baxter/Mike Curb/The 13th PowerWild In The Streets ... LP
Tower, Late 60s. Very Good Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
Hilarious! This is the soundtrack to a goofy late 60s shocker film about the time when hippies and young folks would take over America. Les Baxter handled the musical score for the film, but the real treat is the schlocky rock tracks – written by Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil, with arrangements by Mike Curb in that fuzzy Tower/AIP mode! The lyrics are hysterical, but also oddly catchy, even though they're trying to make fun of 60s rock. Titles include "Psychedelic Senate", "Fourteen Or Fight", "Wild In The Streets", "Sally LeRoy", and "Free Lovin". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Lemon DropsSunshine Flower Power ... CD
Cicadelic, Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Rare psychedelic rock from the suburban Chicago scene – pioneering midwestern flower power from The Lemon Drops – from tripped out folk rock to more buzzing Nuggets style grooves! The group's exceptional "I Live In The Springtime" appeared on the Nuggets box set from Rhino, and other harder to find compilations of rare garage & psychedelia, and the group deserves to be considered with the likes of other more legendary purveyors of panoramic psyche and gritty garage of the era – really pulling off groovy and jangling melodies and more buzzing and fuzzed out rock with equal aplomb! The first disc includes previously unreleased version and rarities galore, with "Sometime Ago" (unreleased and raga versions), "The Theater Of Your Eyes", "To The Tower", "Flower Child Eyes And Arms", "Death Calls"., "Guinevere", "Learn To Fly", "Love Is A Word" and much more. Disc 2 rarities include "My Friend", "Flowers In The Hillside", "I Like You", "Paper Plane Flyer", "Sleeping On Colors", "I Live In The Springtime" (original single mix and extended alternate versions), "Hi, How Are You Today?" and lots more. 36 tracks on 2CDs!

VariousTitan – It's All Pop ... CD
Titan/Numero, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CDs ... $12.99 29.98
Seminal sounds from the Kansas City scene of the late 70s – a wealth of power pop work from the tiny Titan label – all brought together in one of the most brilliant packages we've ever seen from the Numero Group! Like most Numero releases, there's a great story behind this set – a tale of bounced checks, interstate culture, and a cadre of great groups who would have been huge – had they recorded this music out on the coast! Titan's way more than just a tiny label that managed to put out some killer singles back in the day – it's a pop powerhouse that shows just how much under-discovered genius the American scene can hold – music that really helps break down simple understandings of late 70s rock, especially when presented this well. The 2CD set features 42 tracks and a 40 page booklet – a great counterpart to Numero's Yellow Pills set – filled with notes on Titan, a complete discography, and a wealth of wonderful photos that really make this unique scene come alive. Titles include "Shark" and "Real Life Saver" by Gary Charlson, "No Way Baby" and "I Wanna Be" by Arlis, "It's Your Heart Tonight" and "Radio Heart" by Secrets, "Please Change Your Mind" and "Baby It's You" by Boys, "Rock N Roll Song" and "Radio City" by Bobby Sky, "The Last Song" by JP McClain & The Intruders, "Cry" and "Didn't Like It Anyway" by Gems, "Coit Tower" and "Drink A Toast" by Millionaire At Midnight, and "I Think About You" by Scott McCarl.

✨✧ Chester ThompsonPowerhouse ... CD
Black Jazz/Snow Dog (Japan), 1971. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the few solo albums ever cut by organist Chester Thompson – a player who's known to most as the keyboardist in Tower Of Power, but one who's also remembered by a select funky few for this killer record for the Black Jazz label! The album's a stripped-down quartet session – with labelmate Rudolph Johnson on tenor, blowing some beautiful lines alongside long, drawn-out Hammond solos from Thompson! The overall feel is similar to some of the great late 60s Prestige sessions – especially Don Patterson dates – with the group free swinging away in a very live format, just like you might have heard if you caught them in some hip southside club. Other players include Al Hall Jr on trombone and Ray Pounds on drums – and the album features four long jamming tracks, with titles that include "Mr T", "Trip One", "Weird Harold", and "Powerhouse".

✨✧ Randy PieRandy Pie ... LP
Polydor, 1975. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
An obscure jazz rock album from the mid 70s – recorded in Germany, but with vocals in English. Straddling the line between the more mainstream side of prog and some of the more commercial jazzy rock of the time like Chicago, Chase or even a hornless Tower of Power realm, this set is built on tight grooves or slightly bluesy numbers, with some nice keys, choppy guitars that are in more of a funk mode and songs that don't veer off into long instrumental or solo passages. Titles include "Time Machine", "Microfilm", "Super Sid", "Winter Song", and "Highway Driver". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has ring and edge wear with a cut corner and fully split spine.)

✨✧ Merl SaundersHeavy Turbulence ... LP
Fantasy, Early 70s. Poor ... Out Of Stock
Jazz, blues, rock, and soul collide – in one of Merl's messed-up sets for Fantasy, recorded with a wealth of players that show the true crossover spirit of the Bay Area scene. Merl's on keyboards, and joining him are Jerry Garcia, Tom Fogerty, Bill Vitt, The Hawkins Singers, and "a fifth of Tower Of Power". Titles include "My Problems Got Problems, "Man Child", "Welcome To The Basement", "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down", and "Save Mother Earth". LP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo. NOTE – Vinyl is in Poor condition. Cover has ring & edge wear, bumped corners, and some waviness from moisture at the back panel.)

✨✧ Townes Van ZandtRear View Mirror (with download) ... LP
Fat Possum/TVZ, 1993. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Townes revisiting his own time-honored tunes from the late 60s onward, often backed by just a second guitar or fiddle, spare settings that maximize the stark power of his songwriting and voice! The voice is really the key here, distinctive in both the songwriting – with some of the most effective story songs about lost souls and wayward love in the modern folk or country canon – and in performance, here sounding as clear and soulful as ever, and in much stronger form than we remembered! Beautiful stuff. Includes "Pancho & Lefty", "If I Needed You", "For The Sake Of The Song", "Our Mother The Mountain", "Dollar Bill Blues", "No Place To Fall", "Lungs", "White Freightliner Blues", "Don't You Take It Too Bad", "Tower Song", "Waitin' Round To Die", "Colorado Girl" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes download!)
