✨✧ Sandro BrugnoliniFantabulous (turquoise vinyl pressing) ... LP
Trading Places (UK), 1968. New Copy ... $12.99 29.99
One of the grooviest soundtracks ever served up by Sandro Brugnolini – an Italian soundtrack artist who first started in jazz, but who here is really taking on some of the cooler, more upbeat modes of some of his 60s contemporaries! Some of the best cuts have a romping, organ-heavy sound – and a few others have vocals, all stepping over some cool jerk/shake grooves that make the whole thing a romping little ride, even before the vocals come into the mix! A few other cuts have a mellower vibe, but are still pretty groovy – and in addition to a few lyrical numbers, the rest of the set is instrumental – with titles that include "Fantabulous", "Op", "I've Glimpsed At You", "Cup", "Rhythm", and "Susp". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 500!)

Don Covay & The Jefferson Lemon Blues BandDifferent Strokes For Different Folks ... LP
Janus/Trading Places, 1970. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $26.99
A real lost chapter in the career of the great Don Covay – material done after his original funky soul on 60s Atlantic Records, and before his return to fame in the early 70s on Mercury – done in a raw vibe that has a lot more grit than you might expect! There's touches of psychedelic blues in the instrumentation, which was recorded both in Memphis and Muscle Shoals – even though the record comes across with a vibe that's unlike any of the big hits recorded in those scenes at the time! Definitely a standout in the world of soul in the early 70s – with titles that include "Standing In the Grits Line", "Sweet Thang", "Stop By", "Bad Luck", "Hitching a Ride", and "What's In the Headlines". LP, Vinyl record album

Dando ShaftDando Shaft ... LP
RCA/Trading Places (UK), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $25.99 28.99
A self-titled set from Dando Shaft, but actually the group's second album – a set that's as noteworthy for the addition of female singer Polly Bolton as it is for the continued genius of Martin Jenkins! There's a bit more stripped-down style here than the group's first record – almost as if they've mastered their acoustic instruments so well, they can come across with a sound that's wider than you might expect from the lineup – balancing the voices of Bolton and Jenkins to create a really magical sound – and, as with so many of their acid folk contemporaries, coming across with a sound that's complete transcends time throughout. Titles include "Railway", "Riverboat", "Waves Upon The Ether", "Whispering Ned", "Pass It On", "Coming Home To Me", and "Sometimes". LP, Vinyl record album

Dando ShaftEvening With Dando Shaft (with bonus track) ... LP
Decca/Trading Places (UK), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99 28.99
The incredible debut of Dando Shaft, and a key early moment of brilliance for Martin Jenkins – who not only handles lead vocals here, but also arranged the whole record with a wonderfully moody vibe! There's echoes here of some of the more experimental folk-influenced work of the late 60s – such as the gems by Davy Graham, or some of the more compelling Joe Boyd productions – qualities that really come through in the beautiful larger arrangements next to the core acoustic elements, and the album's great use of elements like flute or tablas. Titles include "Cat Song", "Lazily Slowly", "Rain", "Cold Wind", "In The Country", and "Drops Of Brandy". LP features the bonus track "Thruxtun". LP, Vinyl record album

Dando ShaftLantaloon (with bonus track) ... LP
RCA/Trading Places (UK), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $25.99 28.99
Totally wonderful work from one of the most striking groups of the UK acid folk generation – a wonderful combination of acoustic and electric elements, all delivered with a nicely sinister edge! Singer Martin Jenkins is still in the mix here – and his voice has that wonderful edge we always love – balanced by the warmer tones of Polly Bolton, who's really finding her way in the group. Instrumentation mixes guitars with fiddle, mandolin, and some especially nice use of flute and tablas – on titles that include "The Magnetic Beggar/Don't Forget The Animal", "The Black Prince Of Paradise", "The Harp Lady I Bombed", "Melancholic Fervor", "Is It Me", "Road Song", and "It Was Good". Reissue features the bonus track "Spring Clog Dance". LP, Vinyl record album

Emerald WebValley Of The Birds (180 gram vinyl pressing) ... LP
Trading Places (UK), 1981. New Copy Gatefold ... $12.99 23.99
One of the coolest records from this Bay Area electronic duo – a set that features a mix of analogue instruments with mono synths and Lyricons – including the Lyricon Electronic Wind Instrument – which is kind of a mix of analogue electronics and clarinet! The set was recorded on a 4 track, in the duo's home – and originally only issued on cassette. First time ever on vinyl – with titles that include "Valley Of The Birds", "Through The Garden Of Mirrors", "Photonos", "Rainforest", and "The Dragon's Gate". LP, Vinyl record album

SamuraiSamurai ... LP
Greenwich/Trading Places (Italy), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $26.99 29.99
A fantastic debut album from Samurai – one of those lost prog classics from the start of the 70s that still sounds years ahead of its time! The group features Dave Lawson on keyboards and vocals – and represents an amazing (and short) evolution of the sound of his music from his time in the groups Episode Six and Web – a richly visionary vibe that uses jazz elements in ways that are a lot stronger than some of the group's contemporaries – nice bits of vibes, flutes, and tenor – on tunes that move between mellow jams and some more forward-moving numbers – none of which lose the jazzy touches that make the whole thing so great! Titles include "Saving It Up For So Long", "More Rain", "Maudie James", "Holy Padlock", "Give A Little Love", "Face In The Mirror" and "As I Dried The Tears Away". LP, Vinyl record album

Second HandDeath May Be Your Santa Claus (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Mushroom/Trading Places (UK), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99 29.99
An amazing little record that seems completely unto itself – born in that incredible early 70s moment when the UK was overflowing with elements of prog, psych, and hard rock – but served up here by a group who seem to take their own path right from the start! The instrumentation is incredible deft – drums and basslines that could be funk, if they weren't so complex – turned instead towards these fast-moving rhythmic lines that are completely explosive – and intersected at angles by the work on organ and mellotron – and crossed at another angle by the mad vocals of Rob Elliott! There's a musical sophistication here that might put these guys somewhere in the Zappa or King Crimson side of the spectrum – but the songs have a more straightforward, organic appeal overall. Titles include "Death May Be Your Santa Claus", "Cyclops", "Take To The Skies", "Take To The Skies", and "Sic Transit Gloria Mundi". Features three bonus tracks – "Baby RU Anudder Monster", "Funeral", and "Dip It Out Of The Bog Fred". LP, Vinyl record album

Second HandReality (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Essex/Trading Places (UK), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99 29.99
A stunningly massive album – the debut of this obscure UK group, who are a combo that shift effortlessly between late psych and early prog, with perhaps a bit of hard rock thrown in for good measure! If the tunes were longer, they might be too self-indulgent – but instead, the group step nicely between short bursts of musical inspiration – new ideas at every twist and turn, and a great way of using the studio as much as their own instruments – so that the vocals, guitar fuzz, and other elements move between rumbling intensity and some more offbeat moments! One of those lost treasures that really deserves more immortality – with titles that include "A Fairly Tale", "Dennis James The Clown", "Reality", "Mainliner", "Good Old '59 (We Are Slowly Getting Older)", "Steam Tugs", and "The World Will End Yesterday". This edition features rare bonus tracks "James In The Basement" and "I Am Nearly There". LP, Vinyl record album
