✨✧ Gerry Rafferty/HumblebumsWho Knows What The Day Will Bring – The Complete Transatlantic Recordings 1969 to 1971 (New Humblebums/Open Up The Door/Can I Have My Money Back/bonus tracks) ... CD
Transatlantic/Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Gerry Rafferty is best known on our shores for one big crossover AOR hit of the late 70s – but overseas in England, his career started much earlier – as you'll hear in this great set of material! The first CD in the set features two albums recorded under the name of The Humblebums – amazing early work from Gerry Rafferty – material that's completely different than his late 70s material that crossed the Atlantic in a bigger way – as the record's got this cool complexity that's not unlike some of the best folk rock experiments that were taking place at the time on Island Records! There's elements of guitar work and songphrasing that maybe also echo the generation of Bert Jansch, John Renbourn, and even John Martyn – but the songs also have some baroque orchestrations at some points, and fuller instrumentation at others – never fully commercial, and always with an acoustic core – and already-wonderful vocals from Raffterty. Titles include "Look Over The Hill & Far Away", "Steamboat Row", "Half A Mile", "My Singing Bird", "Patrick", and "Her Father Don't Lie". Next is the Gerry Rafferty album Can I Have My Money Back – a record that got circulated globally a lot more in the late 70s, to cash in on his rising fame – but which really takes off in a strong way that places him as a key talent in the folk/rock universe of the UK Transatlantic label at the start of the 70s! The songs are tighter and catchier than the acid folk generation – in part because Gerry's vocals are already completely charming, and produced with this compression that hints at Brit modes to come on mid 70s hits – but a lot more down to earth overall. Titles include "New Street Blues", "Mr Universe", "Mary Skeffington", "Make You Break You", "One Drink Down", and "Half A Chance". 2CD set features great notes, and 14 more bonus tracks! CD

Hamish ImlachHamish Imlach/Before & After/Live/Two Sides Of Hamish Imlach ... CD
Transatlantic/BGO (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99
The first four albums from Hamish Imlach – a fantastic figure from the British folk scene of the 60s, even though his focus here is mostly on Scottish material! Imlach was a mentor to John Martyn and Christy Moore, played with Planxty, and had ties to so many others on the scene – but never fully got his due on this side of the Atlantic – which is a shame, as the material on these records is completely wonderful! Hamish certainly has a sense of wit, but he really balances that with some wonderfully dark material too – mostly traditional tunes re-arranged by Imlach himself, in a mode that paves the way for the directions that a group like Fairport Convention would take in the next few years. The package features four full albums that originally appeared on the Transatlantic label, plus bonus tracks – 46 tracks in all! CD

✨✧ Gordon GiltrapGordon Giltrap/Portrait ... CD
Transatlantic/BGO (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A pair of early albums from the great Gordon Giltrap – both released by Transatlantic Records when Gordon was a very young fellow! The self-titled Gordon Giltrap is a gem from 1968 – a record that has Gordon stepping out as a hell of a guitarist, and a very dark-tinged songwriter – certainly of the generation that was budding with John Renbourn and Bert Jansch – but with a distinct quality that really set Giltrap apart from the rest, maybe making him as much of an individualist as Davy Graham! Although just 18, Giltrap's acoustic guitar work is fantastic– and his vocals are much more biting than some of his contemporaries – almost mean at times. Titles include "Window Pattern", "Blythe Hill", "Won't You Stay Awhile Suzanne", "Don't You Feel Good", "Birth Of Spring", "Don't You Hear Your Mother's Voice", and "Ives Horizon". Portrait is an amazing record – at one level filled with mastery of the 12 string guitar has has Gordon Giltrap matching the best of the Takoma generation in the US – but also graced with vocals that are very distinct, very pointed, and which make the tunes with lyrics such a contrast to the instrumentals! The whole thing is fantastic – a true testament to the legend that has grown up around Giltrap over the years – with titles that include "Thoughts In The Rain", "Never Ending Solitude", "Young Love", "Lucifer's Cage", "Portrait", "Tuxedo", and "Hands Of Fate".

✨✧ Bert JanschJack Orion ... LP
Transatlantic/Superior Viaduct, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A huge leap forward for the mighty Bert Jansch – and a record that's somehow even more amazing than the ones that came before! Bert's maybe even more introspective here, but also on a personal journey that takes him down musical paths that seem broader than before – almost echoing a wider range of influences on his guitar performance, yet in a way that still comes across with a uniquely pointed vibe. There's some occasional shift in the instrumentation, too – as Jansch plays banjo on the leadoff track, but with the same chilling currents as his sublime acoustic guitar – and John Renbourn joins on second guitar for a number of tracks, prefacing the pair's collaboration to come. And as with all of Jansch's genius material at this point, there's a quality that's both ancient and modern, timeless and uniquely tied to its moment – flowering beautifully on tunes that include "Jack Orion", "The Waggoner's Lad", "Nottamun Town", "Black Water Side", "Pretty Polly", and "The Gardner".

Brother Dan All StarsLet's Catch The Beat (180 gram orange vinyl pressing) ... LP
Trojan/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
A classic album from the late 60s run of Trojan producer Dandy – working here under the guise of Brother Dan All-Stars – with a lineup that features some secret help from the rest of the Trojan scene! The groove is mostly rocksteady, with the strongly soulful current that Dandy brought to his own records too – and there's a few points in which the rhythms actually crackle with a slight current of funk – in a way that shows the Transatlantic appeal of the work that Dan was doing at the time! Titles include "The Bunk", "Freedom", "Dream", "Lee's Farewell", "One More Dance", "Mello Music", "Life Can Be Beautiful", "Everybody Feel Good", and "Since I Met You Baby". LP, Vinyl record album

Alabaster DePlumeTo Cy & Lee – Instrumentals Vol 1 ... CD
International Anthem, 2020. New Copy ... $11.99
Beautifully meditative music from Alabaster DePlume – a set that brings together work from a variety of recorded projects from the past decade or so – finally getting full exposure in this Transatlantic collaboration between Chicago's International Anthem label and London's Total Refreshment Centre! The sound is a great illustration of the genre-crossing modes that have been going on in both scenes – as Alabaster's music is definitely beyond easy description or definition, and comes across in a way that's as personal as it is collaborative – since DePlume works with a whole host of different musicians on the recordings, mixing flute, percussion, strings, keyboards, and other elements together in a way that follows a spiritual legacy from the more spacey side of Alice Coltrane, to the west coast experiments of Carlos Nino and Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, to the changes taking place on the planet at present. Alabaster plays tenor and guitar, and vocalizes slightly – but never really sings – and titles include "Why Buzzardman Why", "Not My Ask", "Whisky Story Time", "If You're Sure You Want To", "What's Missing", and "Song Of The Foundling".

Phil PrattWar Is On Dub Style ... LP
Pressure Sounds (UK), Early 80s. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 24.99
A killer album of dub from producer Phil Pratt – and one with a real transatlantic pedigree too! The set was mixed in London, at the legendary Easy Street Studios – but features sounds recorded in Kingston – mostly from songs by Ronnie Davis, and with rhythms that include work from Sly & Robbie – plus lead guitar from Lloyd Gitsy Willis and melodica and keyboards from the great Bobby Kalphat! The whole thing is served up in this really moody brew – nice and lean, very dark and heavy – and with a quality that's much more like some of those rare, barely-circulated Jamaican dub albums from the early years, instead of some of the UK productions of the period. Titles include "Danger Zone", "Easy Street Special", "The Good The Bad & The Brave", "Feel The Beat", "Earth Movement", and "Dancing Kid". LP, Vinyl record album

Will's at the helm and handles most instruments – but there's also guest vocals from Aspects, EQ, and Allice Russell – the last of whom was just at the start of her mighty run, and really gains plenty by matching up with the funky Quantic style of production! There's a lot more tuneful, catchy moments than before – and titles include "Off The Beaten Track", "Sweet Calling", "Primate Boogaloo", "Apricot Morning", "Search The Heavens", "Brand New Watusi", "Transatlantic", and "Blackstone Rock".

John RenbournFaro Annie ... LP
Reprise, 1972. Near Mint- ... $39.99
An album of understated brilliance from the great John Renbourn – a set that mostly just features John on vocals and guitar, working through tunes of a traditional nature – yet delivering a record that's full of tremendously powerful moments! There's none of the hoke here that you might have gotten from a folk revival record from a decade before – and instead, Renbourn's bringing all the amazing new discoveries he and his contemporaries have unlocked in the acoustic guitar, as a way of opening up some of the darker corners and spookier elements of the tunes – none of which should be that strong on their own, but which work together here beautifully. Renbourn gets a bit of help from time to time – vocals from Dorris Henderson, harmonica from Pete Dyer, and drums from Terry Cox – but most of the set is just vocals and guitar, even more timeless in 1971 than it might have been before John plays a bit of sitar and harmonica, too – and titles include "Kokomo Blues", "Little Sadie", "Shake Shake Mama", 'The Cuckoo","Willy O Winsbury", "Faro Annie", and "Come On In My Kitchen".

✨✧ Aaly/DKV Double TrioDouble Or Nothing ... CD
Okka Disk, 2002. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two important improvising trios come together head to head in the transatlantic brilliance of Okka Disk Records in the 90s – recorded in a very unusual way that lets you clearly hear all the contributions of the members of the group! In the left channel stands AALY – a searing lineup of Mats Gustafsson on alto and tenor, Ingebrigt Haker Flaten on bass, and Kjell Nordeson on drums – and in the right channel stands DKV, with Ken Vandermark on tenor and bass clarinet, Kent Kessler on bass, and Hamid Drake on drums – a mighty meeting of musicians who are really at the top of their improvising game! Rather than come on head-to-head, it's amazing to hear the way that these well-matched trios open up to each other – especially the bassists and drummers, who are maybe less familiar in this setting than Vandermark and Gustafsson, who were an instantly amazing musical pair. The set begins with the original "Left To Right", then the group makes real magic over the course of 51 minutes, in a piece that offers variations on Albert Ayler's "Angels" and Don Cherry's "Awake Nu".

A very cool record – one that's billed as "jazz, but not as you know it" – which is no surprise, given that trumpeter Antoine Berjeaut is working very closely with Makaya McCraven! Makaya plays drums in the group, and also produced the record – emphasizing some of the sharp edges in the rhythms, and fast changes in tone and color – supplied strongly by Antoine's trumpet, in a lineup that also features McCraven's labelmate Junius Paul on bass, plus Julien Lourau on tenor, Guillaume Magne on guitar, Lorenzo Bianchi Hoesch on live electronics, and Arnaud Roulin on keyboards – all working together with the Chicago contingent in some fantastic transatlantic energy that matches some of McCraven's music with the London scene. Titles include "Sci-Fi", "Lourau's Loop", "Down The Clipper", "Shadows", "Triple A", and "JP's Beats". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Dandy (Dandy Livingstone)Dandy Returns (orange vinyl pressing) ... LP
Trojan/Real Gone, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Dandy Livingstone steps off the plane on the cover – but the music inside is a key example of the work he was doing overseas – as Dandy produced the whole set of recordings in the late 60s London scene, where he was serving as a key bridge between that city and Kingston – as part of a huge transatlantic wave of Jamaican musical growth! Dandy's vocals are laidback, and kind of slide into the mix – almost letting the rhythms really set the tone, with less of the American soul styles of some of his contemporaries. Titles include "Your Daddy Is Home", "Doctor Sure Shot", "It's A Sad World", "My Nights Are So Lonely", "Put On Your Dancing Shoes", "You're Not The Same Girl", and "Run Come Have Fun".

✨✧ Sidiku BuariFeelings In Africa/Sidiku Buari & His Jam Busters ... CD
Precious/BBE (UK), Early 80s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A pair of rare records by Sidiku Buari – issued back to back on a single CD! Feelings is a record that was issued on the tiny Precious label – home to only two Buari albums in its tiny catalog – and the set follows strongly on the work that Sidiku recorded in New York during the 70s, records that were initially issued just under his last name! The groove on some tracks is full of early 80s NYC touches – sweet electro keyboards that provide some great middle-ground shocks to the tunes – while beats crackle crispy at the bottom, and Buari sings these slinky soul vocals that are a lot more American than you'd guess from the Ghanaian recording of the album. But other numbers have more of a West Africa vibe – that updating of older modes that was taking place in Nigeria too. Titles include "Music", "Feelings", "Anowar", and "Yayo Papa". Sidiku Buari & His Jam Busters has a groove that definitely lives up to its name – a sweet 80s crackle with lots of tunes that jam in an old school funk style – keyboards, basslines, and rhythms right on the money – in a great Transatlantic bridge between Ghana and New York City! The set begins with the super-funky "Let's Go To Funky Town" – a tune with a break on the intro to rival some of the best funky club work of the time – and the vibe continues strongly through the rest of the set, on titles that include "Sophisticated Jammer", "Power To My People", "Rhythm Of Africa", "Minsumobo", and "Karambani".

VariousColombian Soul – Compiled By Bagar aka Tricky D ... CD
BBE (UK), 2019. New Copy ... $14.99 18.98
A completely different side of Colombian music than you'd know from Discos Fuentes and some of the other mainstream outlets from that scene – as the tracks here are all from the contemporary underground, and represent a really rich flowering of creative grooves and soulful modes! In truth, most of this work might hail from any hip spot in the global underground – save for the fact that the lyrics are often in Spanish, and many tunes have some slight reference to older musical modes – sometimes an acoustic element mixed in with more electronic instrumentation, sometimes a more direct reference! The quality of the tracks is wonderful – a really strong surprise to our ears, as we never would have discovered this music otherwise – and it represents a really great alternative so some of the more staid, often boring attempts to create a global fusion of elements in the mainstream. Titles include "Cada Paso" by Liannia, "Cumbia Lobina (ext mix)" by Dragao featuring Nidia Gongora, "Aquazero" by Systema Solar featuring Pedro Ramaya, "Oyele" by Jimena Angel, "Cuando Canto Grito" by Cerrero featuring Lucia Pulido, "El Leopardo" by El Leopardo, "Mujer Divina" by Salsangroove, "Gualayo" by Radio Rebelde Soundsystem, "La Negra Y El Fantasma" by Bareto, "Nunca Termina" by David Caneva Akle, "Manana Sera" by Ruzto, and "De Donde Vengo Yo" by Los Transatlanticos featuring Pilar Matarola.
