Jonny TrunkA to Z Of Record Shop Bags – 1940s to 1990s ... Book
Fuel (UK), 2022. New Copy ... $28.99 34.95
Sometimes you don't realize you've been holding something great in your hands until you let it go – and for us, that's definitely the case with this beautiful book – a compendium of record store bags from the 20th Century – presented here in vivid images that remind us that the bags from the stores were often as colorful as the albums they contained! Author Jonny Trunk has given us many treasures over the years – both in book format, and on his label Trunk Records – yet this may be one of the best he's ever given us – as it's really the only way we'd ever get a chance to see the sorts of gems that were associated with vintage record purchases in classic record stores – but which were usually discarded once the records were brought home! The big book is 240 pages, and features over 500 images of record store bags from the 40s through the 90s – most from the UK, Trunk's home turf – and most of them even rarer than most records from the time. Each listing also includes a brief blurb about the store – so also consider the book to be a listing of over 500 classic record stores – lovingly compiled and brought together with a remaining fragment of their existence.

Jonny Trunk/Jerry Dammers (intro)Music Library – Graphic Art & Sound (revised & expanded) ... Book
Fuel Design (UK), 2005. New Copy ... $42.99 55.00
An incredible guide to sound library music around the world – one that features artwork from countless different labels, and brief notes on their history and output! The package is quite unique – not really a discography, not really an art book – but kind of a mix of both – and the only resource so far we've seen for tracking down the elusive musical gems that have come out of sound library sources of the 50s, 60s, and 70s! The book lists hundreds of records from 230 different labels – each presented alphabetically, with information and history on each label – alongside a huge amount of color images of the covers that are as beautiful as the music contained within. Trunk Records head Jonny Trunk put the whole thing together – and this huge second edition is twice as big as the first – really showing the full scope of new information on some of the more obscure labels that have come into play in recent years. 248 pages, hardcover, full color – and beautiful!

✨✧ Jonny TrunkAuto Erotica – A Grand Tour Through Classic Car Brochures Of The 1960s to 1980s ... Book
Fuel (UK), 2021. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
You might know Jonny Trunk as the head of England's amazing Trunk Records label – but here, he demonstrates a completely different side of his talents, although one that's as aesthetically dynamic as the music he puts on his records! As the title implies, the book features two decades' worth of classic advertisements for automobiles – usually from publicity put out by the car companies themselves, and with the British and European spin you'd expect from Jonny's UK background. And, as with all his projects, Trunk's sense of taste and eye for the unusual is fantastic – and the book ends up being almost as much of an art piece as it is a document of the way that automobiles used to be presented to the public! Softcover, 240 pages, and full color throughout. Book

Ron Geesin with Bridget St JohnSunday Bloody Sunday (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Trunk (UK), 1971. New Copy ... $28.99 32.99
Ron Geesin's a British arranger with a host of amazing talents – from early work in the exotica field, to a famous collaboration with Roger Waters – always handled with a mindblowing sense of sound and scope! Here, he delivers a superb score for the film Sunday Bloody Sunday – a dark-themed drama that's given backing by Geesin that's maybe even more illuminating than the images on the screen at times – as Ron captures a moody vibe in perfect ways, but also changes things up a fair bit instrumentally – which makes each new selection feel very different, even though they are unified in mood. Bridget St John sings on the track "Chemical Dreams", and plays guitar on "Motoring Sparkle" – and other titles include "Intriguing Cables", "Sky High Balloons", "Piccadilly Bustle", "Blitzful Memories", and "Affections For String Quartet". Plus, the LP also features great bonus tracks from other Geesin projects – four more tracks from a 1985 documentary on Viv Richards, and six more from a 1970 documentary on mental health, titled "Shapes In A Wilderness" – both a great match for the main score.

✨✧ Sidney Sager & The Ambrosian SingersChildren Of The Stones ... LP
Trunk (UK), 1977. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99 32.99
Weird and wild music for a TV show so scary, we'd hardly want to show it to our kids – lest they stay up with nightmares for the rest of their lives! Yet the show was actually aimed at kids, but scored by Sidney Sager with this really strange style – voices by The Ambrosian Singers, who are an eerie ensemble with a wordless approach – almost like electronic music at times, and mixed with percussion and other odd noises on many tracks – as if there's a whole group of singers trying to act together like a theremin! The whole thing is stunning – exactly the kind of creepy thing that can make a Brit classic like Wicker Man even more striking from an audio level than a visual one – on titles that include "Matthew & Dai", "Nobody Ever Leaves", "Premonition Of Dr Lyle", "Looks It's Jimmo", "Serpent In The Circle", "Adam Touches The Stones", and "Anger The Fire".

✨✧ Magician (Stan Butcher)Magician ... LP
Hobo/Trunk (UK), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A totally great, near-lost record from the electric jazz years of the 70s – one with a vibe that's much more early 70s than you'd expect from the date or the cover – which is probably why this CTI-styled gem has been lost to the shifting sands of time for so many years! The group's headed up by trumpeter Stan Butcher – who you may know from the funky Birds & Brass projects earlier on the British scene – and here, he delivers a slimmed-down version of that groove – with loads of wonderful electric piano and Rhodes from Fi Tench, and great jazz solos from Roger Williams on trombone and the great Barbara Thompson on reeds – a player who's really at her best during this period, and delivers great lines on tenor, soprano, and flute! The group's also got some guitar from the legendary Ray Russell – who's much groovier here than on his own avant records – and all elements come together with a vibe that's a mixture of early 70s electric jazz funk and some of the best sound library grooves of that era too. Titles include "House Of Purple Mist", "Bazaar", "Musk", "Morass", "Playground", and "Drowned Village". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Roger WebbBartleby – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Trunk (UK), 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A pretty fantastic soundtrack from a very unlikely source – a British film based on a 19th century story by Herman Melville, but recast with a scene in London of the swinging 60s! As such, the movie gets a superb score from the great Roger Webb – jazz pianist and sound library genius, and an artist who comes up with a really great mode for the movie – a mix of slow-stepping tunes that are heavy on acoustic bass, and which have a nicely funky vibe – spaced with others that have a slightly more dreamy approach, but which still use very similar instrumentation! There's a sense of tone and color that rival some of the more serious British soundtracks of the period – but the leaner instrumentation here makes things sound nicely different, and creates one of the most striking film scores we've heard from the UK at the time.

✨✧ Jose PratesTam Tam Tam ... LP
Trunk (UK), 1958. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Heavy rhythms from the Brazilian scene of the 50s – a set of grooves originally used to accompany a touring dance production, but a set of tracks that's gone on to have quite a life of its own! The music here isn't the cool bossa or spare samba you might expect – and instead has this full-on, very heady sort of vibe – almost Afro-Cuban in the way the album was recorded, although lots of the core elements of the music have a distinctly Brazilian feel, and seem to point the way towards more ambitious recordings of the 60s – such as the work of Moacir Santos on the Forma label, or the Afro Sambas of Baden Powell and Vinicius De Moraes! Percussion is very heavy, and nicely earthy – and most tracks feature some chorus vocals buried alongside the rhythms, plus occasional leads from Ivan De Paula – who's got a deep style that really matches the music. Titles include "Imbae Sofa", "Ogum Olojo", "De Luanda", "Tem Brabo No Samba", "Onika", and "Maracatu Da D Santa". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousBritxotica Goes East! – Persian Pop & Casbah Jazz From The Wild British Isles! ... LP
Trunk (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Groovy Brit tunes with exotic Far East influences – affectionately compiled by the deep digging geniuses at Trunk Records! Persian Pop & Casbah Jazz From The Wild British Isles is an apt description, alright – as the vibe is very much in a bright, groovy late 50s/early 60s Brit mode, with jazzy pop and hip soundtrack style to spare – with lyrical and instrumental odes to the Far East that are sweet and endearing in ways that transcend the cheeky exotica of the time. Wonderful stuff – with tunes by The Beverley Sisters, Chico Arnez, Johnny Keating, Tony Osborne, Ray Ellington and more. 16 tracks in all: "Sphinx Won't Tell" by Beverley Sisters, "Caravan" by Stanley Black, "Persian Twist" by Charles Blackwell, "Marrakesh" by Tony Osborne, "Climb Up The Wall" by Yana, "Miserlou" by Stanley Black, "Turkish Coffee" by Tony Osborne, "The Sultan Of Bezaaz" by Ray Ellington and more.

✨✧ Ron GeesinPot-Boilers – Soundtracks To Stephen Dwoskin Films 1966 to 1970 ... LP
Trunk (UK), Late 60s. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
The great Ron Geesin is a man of many talents – UK studio genius, ace composer, arranger, and more – with ties to worlds that include film music, sound library work, easy listening, and even collaborations with Pink Floyd! The music here is all from films by underground director Stephen Dwoskin – a British filmmaker who was very influenced by the avant film scene in New York – and who, like some of the best of those artists, really saw music as a key component to his overall work! Gavin Bryars later scored some of Dwoskin's 70s efforts – but this set brings together mindblowing music by Geesin – work that, like Ron at his best on other records, is often as experimentally sonic as it is musical – created from elements that are almost impossible to discern, once they get the Geesin touch – and presented here in a long-overdue musical document of five films that have now crumbled to the ashes of time. Selections include "Chinese Checkers", "Alone", "Pot Boiler", "Feet", and "Moment". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Basil KirchinEveryday Madness ... LP
Trunk (UK), 1970s. Sealed ... Out Of Stock
Rare work from the archives of Basil Kirchen – very appropriately titled, given the madness of the legendary UK composer! As Jonny Trunk explains in the notes, Kirchen left the music behind with little in the way of information – but that hardly detracts from the quality of the music, as each of the three selections on the record are a very compelling part of his legacy! "Pat's Pigs" begins the set – and is possibly some field recordings, which are then processed, with improvised music added in – all with the end result of maybe some of the more sonic/textural experiments on FMP in the latter half of the 70s. "Electronic" is clearly a pun of a title – as the core elements of the music are voices, including some of autistic children – recorded by Kirchen, then processed and augmented – with this surprising sense of beauty and depth that comes in the way they're organized and mixed with very subtle low-end horns – all with surprisingly musical results. Last up is "The Suspended Fourth" – a piece that is maybe more jazz or soundtrack overall – and maybe partly in the territory of the looser minimalists of the 70s! There's a bit of guitar, some nice reed work, and this really poetic quality to the music overall – especially when the use of vibes brings out some stunning chromatic elements in the recording.

Dusko Goykovich with Nathan Davis & Mal WaldronSwinging Macedonia ... CD
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1966. New Copy ... $14.99 19.99
A legendary German session from the 60s – and a record that really showcases the unusual criss-crossing of modes that was going on in the European scene at the time! There's a very strong MPS vibe here – as trumpeter Dusko Goykovich leads a swinging sextet that includes Nathan Davis on flute, soprano, and tenor – blowing some tremendously soulful reed lines – plus incredible rhythms from Mal Waldron on piano, Peter Trunk on bass, and Cees See on drums. The record's an attempt to bring traditional Macedonian rhythms into a jazz perspective – but with players like these, it swings in a way any Macedonian album never could – damn soulful, and with a great exotic vibe. Davis is especially great, and plays in a soaring modal vein that's similar to his work on his classic MPS sides, and on the records he cut in America in the early 70s. The album's a beautiful session that often get's overlooked because it blends it with the Enja catalog – but it's really more of a record that belongs in an MPS reissue series, and is a great lost groover that's waiting to be rediscovered by the Dusty Groove crowd. Titles include "Macedonia", "Old Fisherman's Daughter", "Jumbo Uganda", "Bem Basha", "Saga Se Karame", and "The Nights Of Skopje". CD

Ingfried HoffmannSoul Bond ... LP
Polydor/Universal (Germany), 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $39.99 44.99
German keyboardist Ingfried Hoffman handled the grooviest organ working the other side of the Atlantic in the 60s – as mighty a talent on the Hammond as Jimmy Smith or Jack McDuff back in the US at the time, and equally groovy too! Hoffmann's work on the keys is probably best known from his searing soul jazz sides with Klaus Doldinger in the pre-Passport years – but this package focuses even more strongly on Hoffmann's sides as a leader – all of which are tightly snapping, quickly vamping, and filled with loads of lively organ and guitar! The core part of the set is Ingfried's lost album From Twen With Love – a 1966 spy-jazz styled album, with both original numbers, and a few James Bond covers – all played by a quintet that features guitars from Volker Kriegel and Pierre Cavalli, bass by Peter Trunk, and funky drums from Rafi Luderitz. Titles include "Yeah Dr No", "Thunderball", "007 Bond Street", "Sharp Sharks", "Phantom's Walk", "Let Live & Die", "Vabanque At Casino Royale", and "James Only Lives Twice". LP, Vinyl record album

Be! (Germany), 1964. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
Incredible sounds from the German Jazz Festival of 1964 – a wonderful meeting of modern talents from all over the European continent at the time – including some great work from behind the Iron Curtain too! The album features a few tracks each by a number of different groups – all of them excellent, and the sorts of players who are really under-represented in terms of available recordings – which makes this selection of tracks completely essential! The set begins with "Sopranitis" and "Birmingham Post" – played by a very cool combo with Heinz Sauer on tenor and soprano sax, Joki Freund on the same two instruments, Emil Mangelsdorff on alto, and Gunther Kornberg on alto and baritone – a four-sax group that works with just bass and drums to give them a groove, with strong solos from all players. Next up is the fantastic Zagreb Jazz Quartet – with Bosko Petrovic on vibes – playing "In Walked Bud" and "Degressia" – plus a version of "Bluesette" with a guest appearance by Sven Asmussen. Tenor player Karl Drevo (Drewo) leads a quintet with trumpeter Maffy Falay and pianist Bora Rokovic – on a long reading of "Save Your Love For Me". The legendary quartet of saxophonist Klaus Doldinger is next – his great group with Ingfried Hoffmann on Hammond, Peter Trunk on bass, and Klaus Weiss on drums – with guest work by Rolf Kuhn on tenor and Inge Brandenberg on vocals – on the titles "Waltz Of The Jive Cats", "What's The Matter Daddy", and "Groovin In Berlin". Last up is one of our favorite groups of the time – the quintet of pianist Michael Naura, which also features Wolfgang Schluter on vibes and Peter Reinke on alto – on "Rainy Clouds" and "Rhythm A Ning".

This album's one of Harvey's best as a solo act – and gets some sweet fuzzy production by the legendary Abe Voco Kesh – whose touches help give the record that sort of genre-stepping vibe of the best Bay Area material of the time. Harvey's guitar is firmly in the lead, but there's a bit more vocals on the set than some of the previous Mandel records – and titles include a trippy version of Horace Silver's "Senor Blues", plus "Capurange", "Ridin High", "Honky Tonk", "Leavin Trunk", and a wild stoned version of "Games People Play".

The set's one of the most soulful in the Mojo series, and like the rest, it's filled with obscure gems that you might have passed by over the years – not only rare cuts from singles, but a number of great tunes that have lain hidden on 70s albums that were otherwise worth passing over.

He gets key help on the record from a young Ry Cooder, and from guitarist Jessie Ed Davis too – and titles include "Leaving Trunk", "EZ Rider", "Dust My Broom", "Diving Duck Blues", "The Celebrated Walkin Blues", and "Statesboro Blues".

CD1 features this sublime performance from trombonist Albert Mangelsdorff in 1961 – a well-recorded live date that not only features incredible trombone from the leader, but also especially wonderful work on reeds – from the great Bent Jaedig on tenor and Gunter Kronberg on alto – both players who craft solos as breathtaking as Albert's own! The quintet has no piano – which puts even more emphasis on the wicked bass work of Peter Trunk – who's nicely upfront in the mix – and the group's completed by drummer Hartwig Bartz. Titles from this group include "Air Conditioning", "Dada Marsch", "Now's The Time", "Set Em Up", "Hershey Bar", "Ba Hu Cha", and "Laverne Walk". CD2 features lots more wonderful material too – Albert and altoist Emil Mangelsdorff in four tracks with the sextet of tenorist Joki Freund; a German All Stars recording from 1963, with Emil and Albert, plus Hans Koller and Freund on tenors, Wolfgang Schluter on vibes, Horst Jankowski on piano, and Rolf Kuhn on clarinet; a 1953 duet between Albert and guitarist Attila Zoller; a German All Stars recording from 1956 with Emil and Albert; and three tracks from 1957, with Albert in the company of west coast musicians Bud Shank on alto and Bob Cooper on tenor – plus a young Joe Zawinul on piano!

The book is a painstakingly researched collection – and this soundtrack is just as carefully put together – with a great range of styles – heavily steeped in freaky funk, upbeat boogie, acid folk, offbeat psych, and trippy jazz!

The format here is quite loose – a bit like some of the late hours, swing-based sides on Prestige at the end of the 50s – with longish tracks that let both players state their solos in clean, well-recorded phrasings – with gentle support from a trio that includes Tete Montoliu on piano, Peter Trunk on bass, and Albert Tootie Heath on drums. There's a few faltering moments at times, but they also add a nice degree of humanity to the record – kind of a dimming genius that might not have been allowed on an American session by either player, but which speaks volumes here for the time and distance both players had travelled! Titles include "Caravan", "Sundae", "Blues For Dottie Mae", and "Perdido". CD

Be! (Germany), 1963. Used ... Out Of Stock
The German jazz scene in 1963 – a year when the nation's musicians were really finding their own sorts of sounds – and breaking free from just American-inspired modes! The set brings together all the best players from that year – and begins with an all-star jam at the start, then moves into smaller group readings that are even more compelling – as they allow for the individual voices and styles of the players to really come to the forefront! The recording quality is great – this must have been a radio project, or conceived as a full album back in the day – and we'd rank the music here right up there with the most exciting sounds from the earliest years of the Saba/MPS label. Titles include the leadoff number "Madame B" – arranged and composed by saxophonist Joki Freund, who plays in the Deutschen All Stars group with Albert Mangelsdorff on trombone, Rolf Kuhn on clarinet, Gerry Weinkopf on flute, Helmut Brandt on baritone, Ingfried Hoffmann on organ, Peter Trunk on bass, Joe Nay on drums, Emil Mangelsdorff on alto, Hans Koller on tenor, and Conny Jackel on trumpet. Other titles include "Ruth" by the Albert Mangelsdorff/Hans Koller Septet with Wolfgang Schlitter on vibes and Michael Naura on piano; "Meeting At The Barberina" by the Horst Jankowski/Rolf Kuhn quintet; "Andreas" by the Helmut Brandt Sextet with Schluter's vibes; "Anything Else" by the Joki Freund Quintet, "When You're Young" by The Feetwarmers; "Joes Blues" by the Klaus Doldinger Quartet with Ingfried Hoffmann on Hammond; "Rainy Clouds" by the Michael Naura Quintet with Schluter on vibes; and "Gerti" by the All Star Sax Group, with Koller, Mangelsdorff, Freund, Doldinger, and Brandt.

✨✧ K-SoloTell The World My Name ... CD
Atlantic, 1990. Used ... Out Of Stock
K-Solo's long hard to find first LP for the Hit Squad, with some classic early 90s trunk rattling funky PMD beats – underneath his relentless rhyme style! Gruff, funk beats and samples underneath booming rhymes. K-Solo's couple of LPs for Atlantic didn't really get their due back in the day, and it's high quality, blueprint hip hop all the way! CD

✨✧ VariousDifferent Kind Of Blues – Music From Another Dimension ... CD
Warner (Australia), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Some blues, but not the kind that's blue – and instead a batch of messed-up, freaked-out, turned-on sounds from the end of the 60s – that magical time when it seemed like so many different genres were crashing together, and coming up with really great new music in the process! The set begins in the funky blues territory of the Chicago scene, but then takes off to explore new versions of bluesy roots in the rock underground on both sides of the Atlantic – and in the world of soul music as well, with a range of styles that's surprisingly rich overall. The package features mostly vintage tracks, plus a few cuts from recent years too – and titles include "Black Rock Yeah Yeah" by Blackrock, "25th Century Quaker" by Captain Beefheart, "Funky" by Freddie King, "Gris Gris Gumbo Ya Ya" by Dr John, "Tramp" by Lowell Fulson, "Stonehead Blues" by Eric Quincy Tate, "I Just Want To Make Love To You" by Cold Blood, "Messin With The Kid" by Buddy Guy & Junior Wells, "Evil" by Howlin Wolf, "Homework" by Sam Samudio, "Leaving Trunk" by Johnny Jenkins, "Going Down" by Molch, "She's Arlight" by Muddy Waters, and "Me" by Otis Rush. CD features 42 tracks in all! CD
