Billie HolidayLady Love (United Artists) ... LP
United Artists, Early 50s. Very Good- ... $14.99
Rare live work from Billie Holiday – mostly from the early 50s, but not issued until a few years after her death – in a well-done package from United Artists! The tunes were mostly recorded under the supervision of Leonard Feather – and come from two different German tour dates – one with Carl Drinkard on piano, Red Mitchell on bass, and Elaine Leighton on drums – the other with a larger group that features Sonny Clark and Beryl Booker on piano, Red Norvo on vibes, Buddy DeFranco on clarinet, and Jimmy Raney on guitar! The second set features longer tracks with a bit more improvisation – a nice treasure from these key years of Billie – on titles that include "Lover Come Back To Me" and "Billie's Blues". The trio sides are a bit more straight, but still plenty great – with titles that include "Blue Moon", "All Of Me", "My Man", "I Cover The Waterfront", and "I Cried For You". LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby WomackBobby Womack's Greatest Hits (United Artists pressing) ... LP
United Artists, Late 60s/Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $16.99
Bobby's so great, it's hard to fit all of his good stuff on one LP – but this set does a pretty darn good job, and includes 12 tracks from his legendary years on United Artists! Hearing this set, we're stunned to realize just how many great tracks Bobby turned out over the years – especially because there's a few nice ones on here we forgot that he even did. Titles include "Harry Hippie", "You're Welcome, Stop On By", "Sweet Caroline", "That's The Way I Feel About Cha", "More Than I Can Stand", "I Can Understand It", "Lookin For A Love", and "Woman's Gotta Have It".

✨✧ GypsyComes A Time – The United Artists Recordings (Gypsy/Brenda & The Rattlesnake/bonus tracks) ... CD
United Artists/Esoteric (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The full United Artists recordings of this enigmatic group – two full albums, and a bonus single too! First up is the self-titled Gypsy – work by a group who shouldn't be confused with the American act of the same name, even though their sound definitely has some influence from the rootsier sound of our scene at the same time! Acoustic and electric guitar lines mix up nicely, and the group often harmonize the lyrics between the singers – with a sinister edge at times that's a nice surprise, and an unusual approach that's nicely hard to peg – almost as if these guys took a jar full of familiar influences, shook it up, and poured out a special brew of their own. Titles include "Turning Wheel", "I Want To Be Beside You", "Standing Alone Feel So Bad", "Pony Ride", "Keep On Trying", and "What Makes A Man A Man". Brenda & The Rattlesnake has the group changing their lineup slightly, and their sound a bit more – really tightening things up on both the guitars and the vocals – which have this really wonderful focus that's produced strongly with a nice current of fuzz at the edges. There's a sense of compression that marks some of the more mainstream British work of the period, but these guys are hardly pop at all – maybe just a bit more hard rocking than before, but still very much their own bag. Titles include "Change Your Mind", "Shame", "Who's Cheating", "Brand New Car", "Midnight Fighter", and "Let's Roll". 2CD set features detailed notes, and the bonus single "Changes Coming" and "Don't Cry On Me".

✨✧ VaporsWaiting For The Weekend – The United Artists & Liberty Recordings (New Clear Days/Magnets/bonus tracks) (4CD set) ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), Early 80s. New Copy 4CD ... Out Of Stock
Your collection of work by The Vapors just got a whole lot bigger – because this 4CD set adds a lot to the group's small catalog that originally just included two full albums! First up is the album New Clear Days – a set that's maybe best remembered for one big hit, but which has a rock-solid sound all the way through! The group hail from the UK, and they've got a strong sort of Jam flavor going on here – songs that are short and fast, but super-catchy too – more tunefulness than snark, with a small current of politics in the mix too! That one hit is "Turning Japanese" – a song that most folks know, even if they don't know the group's name – and it's nestled nicely here alongside cuts that include "Waiting For The Weekend", "Letter From Hiro", "News At Ten", "Sixty Second Interval", "Cold War", and "Spring Collection". Next up is Magnets – the overlooked second album from The Vapors – a set that's every bit as tuneful and catchy as their first – a blend of early punk modes with a growing sense of songcraft – maybe in the same place at the moment as work by The Undertones, or even The Jam – with whom the group have a bit of a connection! As with their debut, the set's filled with catchy songs that should have gotten them a lot more play at the time – a nice edge, and never too polished for a bigger label – with titles that include "Can't Talk Anymore", "Johnny's In Love Again", "Spiders", "Isolated Case", "Live At The Marquee", "Daylight Titans", and "Magnets". 4CD set features 54 more bonus tracks – including alternative versions of both of the core albums, a Live At The Rainbow set from 1979, and titles that include "Galleries For Guns", "Jimmie Jones (single)", "Sunstroke", "Prisoners", "Here Comes The Judge (live)", "Billy", "Wasted", "Talk Talk", and "Move (demo)".

Luis BacalovWe Still Kill The Old Way ... LP
United Artists, 1968. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A great thriller soundtrack – by one of the Italian masters of the 60s! Bacalov's score for the film mixes jazzy numbers with more suspenseful orchestral ones – but the best cuts have a jaunty groovy quality, of the sort you dig these old Italian soundtracks for! Bruno Nicolai conducted the orchestra, and the nicest cuts have choppy percussion and some good instrumental elements, like sax or organ. Includes the bossa groover "We Still Kill The Old Way", plus "Is It Wrong", "Jazz Club", "Laurana's Suspicion", and "The Arrest". LP, Vinyl record album

Bonzo Dog Doo Dah BandLet's Make Up & Be Friendly ... LP
United Artists, 1972. Very Good+ ... $3.99
The last album from the legendary Bonzo Dog Band – issued at a time when the group were going their separate ways, hence the somewhat ironic title! The set's possibly a bit more musical than before – and almost even shows some traces of the hipper, artier side of the British scene that was bubbling under in the jazz rock generation – that mix of sounds and styles that would emerge more fully on Virgin Records in the next few years. Instrumentation is actually quite focused at times – and includes saxes, flute, xylophone, and some surprisingly well-played guitar. But most noteworthy are the more straightforward lyrics of some tunes – the lack of jokes and more personally poetic moments in their place. There's still a fair bit of funny bits, too, though – and titles include "The Strain", "Turkeys", "King Of Scurf", "Waiting For The Wardrobe", "Slush", "Bad Blood", and "Rawlinson End".

Brass Construction's fifth album, and the group's still grooving harder than most of their contemporaries! The legendary Randy Muller is still fully in charge here – serving up his trademark lean, mean arrangements that compress all elements of the music firmly on the beat – all in a way that creates one of the funkiest grooves you'll ever hear in mainstream late 70s club! There's plenty of great little touches to keep each tune interesting – bits of strings, keyboards, or other elements that burst out of the mix playfully . Titles include "It's Alright", "Watch Out", "I Want Some Action", "Right Place", "Music Makes You Feel Like Dancing", and "Shakit". CD

✨✧ Brass ConstructionBrass Construction II ... LP
United Artists, 1976. Very Good+ ... $9.99
The second album from Brass Construction – heavy horns, basslines, and stellar dancefloor grooves – a stone classic! The first one was totally great, but they cast a wider stylistic claim on II – their trademark funky sound is still very firmly in place, but they bring more to the plate. The rhythms and percussion have a more globally steeped flare at points on the album, and there's a more smoldering, slightly mellower vibe on some tracks, without sacrificing the funk. The whole thing's fused together wonderfully – with the larger group moving with the energy a much smaller combo – and titles include "Sambo", "Screwed", "Get To The Point", "What's On Your Mind", and "Now Is Tomorrow".

United Artists/P-Vine (Japan), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $36.99
One of the few albums ever cut by Les DeMerle, one of the hippest drummers of his time – made legendary thanks to legions of samplers and beatheads in the 90s! The album is one of Les' best records – a tight batch of funky big band tracks, with lots of nice grooves, and a very hip lineup that includes Frank Foster, Joe Beck, Chris Woods, Arnie Lawrence, and Charles Sullivan – all coming together in some great tunes that have very unusual rhythms, and a great format that puts the drums in line with the hip playing in the reed section! The album includes Les' famous version of "A Day in the Life", which begins with a monster funky intro – plus the cuts "Fusion – Pro & Con", "Underground", "Deflections 1, 2, 3, & 4", and "Aquarius".

Dirt BandDirt Band ... LP
United Artists, 1978. Near Mint- ... $3.99
A real shift in sound for the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band – as the group drop the "nitty gritty" for their name, and go for a well-rounded sound that shows off their songwriting in a very different way! There's little of the rootsy elements of Will The Circle Be Unbroken here – as the group warm things up in more of an AOR style, yet still include some acoustic elements too – almost going for a mix of country roots and more polished crossover modes, with a sound that's more in keeping with their LA roots than most of their other 70s records. Yet taken from the perspective of a mainstream record, the songwriting and execution are great – definitely a cut above – and titles include "You Can't Stop Loving Me Now", "Whoa Babe", "Escaping Reality", "For A Little While", "Lights", and "Wild Nights".

A brilliant album from Kenny Dorham – one of his more far-reaching efforts, with the expansive compositional style that he started bringing to some of his Blue Note work of the early 60s. The record features a group with Jackie McLean on alto, Bobby Timmons on piano, Teddy Smith on bass, and JC Moses on drums – all working with Kenny in a slightly Latin tinged mode that features some really shimmering trumpet work! The record features a stunning 3 part reading of McLean's haunting tune "Melanie" (done under his name on the album A Fickle Sonance) – plus the tracks "Prelude", "El Matador", "Smile", and "There Goes My Heart".

✨✧ Duke Ellington/Charles Mingus/Max RoachMoney Jungle ... CD
United Artists, 1962. Used ... $5.99
Rarely are such "meeting of the minds" sessions worth any fuss at all – but in this case, the masterful talents of the players turn what should be a snoozy "common denominator" session into a modernist classic that still crackles with excitement after all these years! The real success factor here is Ellington, who was hitting a point in his career when he was really beginning to experiment again – as you'll hear in the beautifully angular piano lines that he lays next to Mingus' bass and Roach's lively drums. The set's nearly all originals, and titles include "Money Jungle", "Le Fleurs Africaines", and "Wig Wise". Very nice! CD features bonus tracks! CD

EmbryoEmbryo's Rache (180 gram pressing) ... LP
United Artists/Loneos Editions (Netherlands), 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $32.99 39.99
Early prog jazz genius from the mighty Embryo – and an album that perfectly fuses their love of world rhythms and electric jamming grooves – at a level that made them one of the coolest groups on the European scene at the time! Core work here is by a trio – and the percussion by Edgar Hofmann ranges from playful to hypnotic – with heavy drums and basslines crafting some incredible rhythms that spin out strongly – sometimes jamming, sometimes a bit looser – and often topped with great work on flute by Hansi Fischer, and this ultra-cool Leslie piano played by Christian Burchard – which has a nice fuzzy sound. The album's got lots of other sweet organ and mellotron lines – and Hofmann also plays soprano sax and violin as well – on titles that include "Tausendfussler", "Time", "Revenge", "Espagna Si Franco Finished", "Try To Be", and "Change".

Embryo is working in a pretty amazing mode here, with hypnotic percussion, incredible drums and irresistible bass grooves that keeping in more of an spacey prog rock realm than some of the jazzier efforts later on, but it's an unpredictable, timeless and rewarding gem all the way. Includes "Opal", "You Don't Know What's Happening", "Revolution", "Glockenspiel", "Got No Time", "Call", "End Of Soul", "People From Out Of Space". CD

One of the great space rock records of the 70s – the sublime debut from Embryo – a group who were a lot more unique than most of their contemporaries! Embryo's almost more of a jazz fusion combo than a progressive rock one – and some of their later efforts have them working with key jazz figures on the European scene, in a mode that's definitely pretty far-reaching overall. This record's maybe a bit more down to earth, with slightly shorter songs and more focus on fuzzy guitars – yet the overall approach still points to the skies with a really well-fused sort of energy, and this strong sense of imagination that really packs a lot into a small amount of space. Titles include "Opal", "You Don't Know What's Happening", "Revolution", "Glockenspiel", "Got No Time", "Call", "End Of Soul", "People From Out Of Space". LP, Vinyl record album

Ferrante & TeicherIn A Soulful Mood/Killing Me Softly ... CD
United Artists/Vocalion (UK), 1973/1974. Used ... $14.99
A pair of hip 70s albums from the team of Ferrante & Teicher – back to back on one CD! In A Soulful Mood is a surprisingly soulful set from the team of Ferrante & Teicher – filled with lush instrumentals that mix their piano-heavy technique with some seductive 70s grooves! George Butler heads up the record on production, and definitely draws from some of his best orchestrated jazz albums of the time – bringing in currents you might not normally expect from the aging pair – and, in a way, making the larger orchestrations more of the lead than the keyboards. Although we've also got to admit, F&T play some sweet Fender Rhodes at times – on titles that include great 70s soul covers – like "Love's Theme", "Break Up To Make Up", "You Are Everything", "I'm Stone In Love With You", and "Betcha By Golly Wow" – plus an original called "Hong Kong Soul Brother", which has a nice funky soundtrack vibe! Killing Me Softly is a set that's heavy on strings, but still has some of the nice punch you'd find in the best Ferrante & Teicher albums of the 70s – done in conjunction with producer George Butler, but still with some traces of the old days too! The piano is mostly acoustic, and arrangements often have that lush mode the duo used when a bit less pyrotechnic – but there's a few gently funky numbers that still round out the set nicely. Titles include "Ben", "Also Sprach Zarathustra", "Seesaw", "Night Sounds", "Try Again", and "Living Together Growing Together". CD

King PleasureMr Jazz ... LP
United Artists, Early 60s. Very Good ... $7.99
Despite the fact that he's one of the most influential jazz singers of all time (and certainly one with the biggest hit, as the original recording of "I'm In the Mood For Love" probably sold more copies than most other vocalese recordings combined), King Pleasure only ever cut three full albums – and this third one is the hardest to find! The album was recorded for United Artists during the time when Alan Douglas was cutting sides for the label, and it's very much in the same mode as his earlier recordings for Prestige and HiFi, apart from some occasional spare string backing that's added to the small group jazz playing. Pleasure's vocals are wonderful – incomparable, and right at the peak of vocalese sublimity – and the album's filled with great numbers like "That Old Black Magic (Diaper Pin)", "This Is Always", "Jazz Jump", "Don't Get Scared", "Swan Blues", and "Mean To Me", all completely transformed by Pleasure!

The style is completely sublime – a unique blend of the rough and the smooth that would be taken up by other singers in years to come, but which somehow never sounded as fresh and new as it did on this set. Arrangements are sublime – a masterpiece in understatement by Garry Sherman – and the Jerry Ragovoy production on the set is at once spacious and intimate, in a manner that's still leaving us scratching our heads at its brilliance over 40 years later! Titles include "One Girl", "There Goes My Baby", "As Long As I Have You", "It's Just A Matter Of Time", "Tell Me Baby", "Every Time", "One Woman Man", "There Is Something On Your Mind", and "Look Away".

One of the first big moments of global fame for the legendary Ennio Morricone – and a record that still stands as one of his landmark albums all these many years later! The set's famous for its haunting theme – that "wah-wah-wah" melody that led to countless covers and samples over the years – but the whole thing's a lot more complex than just that tune – with lots of the same sense of space and brooding that Morricone brought to his music for Once Upon A Time In The West – with careful use of key instruments on a track by track basis, and these floating lines that almost signaled a whole new way of recording music for a film soundtrack. And yes, there's certainly key western elements like guitar or harmonica – but maybe more striking are all the points at which these obvious tropes disappear – to leave us with those really unique Morricone sounds that go way beyond music! Titles include "The Sundown", "The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly", "Marcia", "The Desert", "The Strong", and "The Trio". PLUS, this stunning 3CD edition might well be the most comprehensive ever – as it includes the original album, plus 63 more tracks from the film recordings – almost 3 hours of music, all of it pure Morricone genius!

✨✧ Andre Previn/Jackie CainTwo For The See Saw ... LP
United Artists, 1962. Near Mint- ... $7.99
A gently jazzy score by Andre Previn – written for this Robert Wise film that starred an aging Robert Mitchum and a young Shirley MacLaine! The feel here is often sad, and a bit dreamy – scored with that "serious" early 60s style that showed up in New York TV dramas a fair bit, but also played with some nice jazzy solo touches – including alto by Ronald Lang, trombone by Dick Nash, and trumpet by Uon Rasey. A few tunes are a bit more upbeat, and Jackie Cain sings the lyrics to the title song "Song From Two For The Seesaw". Other tracks include "Two For The Twist", "Empty Bed", "He Saw She Saw", "I'm Sick", "Salty Sophie", and "Everybody's Got A Radio". LP, Vinyl record album

Colin ScotColin Scot (with bonus tracks) ... CD
United Artists/Esoteric (UK), 1971. New Copy ... $14.99 20.99
The debut album from Colin Scott – a hell of a singer/songwriter who should have been huge – and a talent who was taken from us all too soon! Colin's got a really special sound here – one that has deep American roots, but which is crafted with help from a huge amount of key talents on the British scene at the start of the 70s – including Robert Fripp and Brinsley Schwarz on guitars, Rick Wakeman on keyboards, and Peter Gabriel, Phil Collins, and Peter Hammill on backing vocals – all working with these light string arrangements from Richard Hewson, but at a level that makes the whole thing feel very personal and immediate – maybe that special blend of the individual and the arrangements that Nick Drake had on record – even though Scot's a very different artist than Nick! Scot has an amazing way with a tune, and a vocal approach that will grab you instantly – on titles that include "The Boatman", "Hey Sandy", "Nite People", "My Rain", "Confusion", "Baby In My Lady", and "You're Bound To Lead Us Now". CD features four bonus tracks – "My Rain (take 1)", "Long Time Gone", "Do The Dance Now Davey (take 3)", and "Nite People (take 2)". CD

Maria ToledoMaria Toledo Sings The Best Of Luiz Bonfa ... LP
United Artists, 1967. Near Mint- ... $34.99
An obscure little set from Maria Toledo – a Brazilian singer who's best known for her work with Luiz Bonfa – no surprise, since she was married to Luiz, and sung on a number of his best 60s albums! The set's got Maria stepping out into the spotlight on her own, working with arrangements by a young Deodato – and performing a batch of Bonfa compositions with a sweet, light, gentle feel. The overall style is similar to Deodato's best sets of orchestral bossa of the 60s – and Maria's light vocals have a perfect tone – never too overblown or overemotive, just gently gliding with the magical sound of the tunes! Titles include "Oba Oba", "Passarinho", "Samba De Orfeu", "Menina Flor", "Samba De Duas Notas", and "Seeu Pudesse Voltar". LP, Vinyl record album

TrafficJohn Barleycorn Must Die ... LP
United Artists, 1970. Very Good ... $9.99
Maybe our favorite album ever from Traffic – a set that has the group coming back together, after a fracture that took them in separate musical directions – reformed with a sound that's very different than before! The tracks are longer, and have more influences from both folk and jazz – a deeper sound and spirit, and one that also maybe reflects the loss of Dave Mason from the group! The trio really finds this amazing way forward, almost with some echoes of the hipper side of the Island Records underground – with Steve Winwood on vocals throughout, and on some mighty nice organ and piano – and Jim Capaldi on drums and percussion, and Chris Wood on a variety of saxes, flute, and percussion. Titles include "Glad", "Freedom Rider", "Empty Pages", "Stranger To Himself", and "Every Mother's Son". LP, Vinyl record album

The second album from Traffic, and a set that forever cemented their legacy in the annals of modern music – a set that has Dave Mason returning to the group after a brief hiatus, and maybe helping the quartet find a tighter, rootsier sound overall! The approach here is nicely mixed – almost half Dave Mason moments, and half from the energy of Jim Capaldi and Steve Winwood – held together wonderfully by the reed work of Chris Wood! There's a few key classics here, and lots more overlooked gems – and titles include "You Can All Join In", "Forty Thousand Headmen", "Pearly Queen", "Who Know What Tomorrow May Bring", and "Feelin' Alright".

Sweet funky soul from the great Bobby Womack – a record that mixes Bobby's roots with some of the more righteous modes he picked up on Across 110th Street – blended here in a style that's completely sublime! The record was one of Womack's first to be entirely recorded on the west coast – and has these core grooves that come from the great Wah Wah Watson on guitar and Sonny Burke on keyboards – both players who bring in sharp edges, but can also lay back in a groove as well – helping Bobby perfectly balance funky impulses and mellower moments throughout. There's a sophistication here that really shows the continuing growth of Womack as a musical visionary – and titles include "Everything's Gonna Be Alright", "Daylight", "Love Ain't Something You Can Get For Free", "I Feel A Groove Coming On", and versions of "I Wish It Would Rain" and "Something You Got".

Rarely are such "meeting of the minds" sessions worth any fuss at all – but in this case, the masterful talents of the players turn what should be a snoozy "common denominator" session into a modernist classic that still crackles with excitement after all these years! The real success factor here is Ellington, who was hitting a point in his career when he was really beginning to experiment again – as you'll hear in the beautifully angular piano lines that he lays next to Mingus' bass and Roach's lively drums. The set's nearly all originals, and titles include "Money Jungle", "Le Fleurs Africaines", and "Wig Wise". Very nice! LP, Vinyl record album

A slice of genius from Michel Legrand – one of his brilliant late 60s soundtracks, not as well remembered as, but cut during the same period as The Thomas Crown Affair. The soundtrack is probably best remembered for the incredible theme "What Are You Doing The Rest Of Your Life" – sung here in 2 versions by Michael Dees, and also served up in a nice instrumental take as well. But overall, the whole record is pretty darn great – not as out and out groovy as some of Legrand's other work, but with a great mix of moody, jazzy, and atmospheric – handled with some really great instrumental touches that are all Legrand, all the way! Titles include "Smooth Sailing", "Collage", "Diamonds Are Forever", "Floating Time", "Hurry Up N Hurry Down", and "Whistle While You Swing". LP, Vinyl record album

The whole package isn't too complicated, and just features Zoot blowing easy with a laidback (unnamed) quartet in what seems to be a live session. The solos come fast and free, and with a strong uncluttered sensibility that you don't often hear on other Sims records from the same period.

Not the Utopia group with Todd Rundgren in the lineup, but an earlier German act who only cut this one album – which itself was sort of a side project away from the sessions for the Wolf City album by Amon Duul II! Utopia shares members, a producer, and a lot of energy with that group – but the result here is a bit different – music that's maybe a bit more personal overall, with some songs that are surprisingly sensitive at times, mixed with some of the fiercer instrumentation you'd expect from the Amon Duul legacy. The whole thing's a great example of prog energy trying to find a more focused energy – and were it not for the various issues with the parent group, Utopia may well have found a greater path forward with this album. Titles include "Nasi Goreng", "Jazz Kiste", "Deutsch Nepal", "The Wolf Man Jack Show", "Alice", and "Las Vegas". LP, Vinyl record album

One of the strangest Randy Weston albums you'll ever see – but a great one too! Here, the great modernist pianist/composer plays selections from the hit musical Destry Rides Again – an unusual choice, but one that he makes all his own thanks to some really inventive touches. Randy's working here with his trio (Elvin Jones on drums and Peck Morrison on bass), plus a 4 trombone lineup that includes Melba Liston, Frank Rehak, Slide Hampton, and Bennie Green (all hip players in their own right!) Liston handles the arrangements, as with many other Weston sessions – and the tracks have a strangely off-kilter sound that actually makes the hokey material sound pretty darn great! Weston's playing is especially nice, and the strange tones that issue from the keyboard are certainly not the stuff that Harold Rome imagined when composing this score – although his notes on the back seem to indicate his favorable acceptance of the material. Titles include "We're Ladies", "I Say Hello", "Once Knew A Fella", and "That Ring On The Finger". LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby strikes a perfect balance here – keeping things hip, but also tightening things up too – yet never by getting too smooth or too commercial. The result is a great batch of tracks that includes classics like "I Can Understand It", "Woman's Gotta Have it", and "Harry Hippy" – as well as a nice version of "Sweet Caroline", and Jimmy Lewis' great "Got To Get You Back".

A stone classic from Bobby Womack – one of those records that has all his best elements firmly in place, put forward at a level that's sophisticated and polished, yet never too commercial at all! Bobby's voices are still incredible – that raspy, personal feel that's rooted in country and deeper soul modes, yet ready to take on the mainstream as well – and the tracks also still feature lots of his wonderful guitar work, which inflects the music with these deeper feelings that really holds strong – and definitely lives up to the initial charm of Womack's first few records on Minit. Most of the set was recorded at Muscle Shoals, but as a place where Womack was travelling from LA – a fact that definitely shows in the mix of rootsy elements and tighter construction – yet still handled here without any of the cliches that so many other artists might hit when recording on that scene. Titles include the killer funky stepper "You're Welcome Stop On By", which has been sampled and covered many times over the years – plus "I Don't Wanna Be Hurt By Ya Love Again", "Let It Hang Out", "Lookin For A Love", "Doing It My Way", and "Don't Let Me Down". LP, Vinyl record album
(Still sealed, with some marker and small sticker remnants on front.)

15 classic tracks from Brass Construction – featuring mid 70s tunes lifted from the group's well-selling albums on United Artists!

✨✧ CanFuture Days (gold vinyl pressing) ... LP
United Artists/Mute, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A mindblowing classic from Can – a set that has the group just getting better with each new record – to a point where it's the early 70s, and they're already in territory that's completely their own! The set features long tracks that spin out beautifully – driven that that rhythmic drive that the group always had at their best – so different than some of their contemporaries who might have gotten stuck in a sonic corner and never found their way out – while Can was bursting forth with energy and imagination that has kept them still sounding amazing as the decades move on! The set's the last one with the mighty Damo Suzuki, but fortunately not the last with the incredible drums of Jaki Leibezeit – and titles include the 19 minute jam of "Bel Air" – plus "Future Days", "Spray", and "Moonshake". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ John AddisonBridge Too Far (2CD version – with bonus tracks) ... CD
United Artists/Quartet (Spain), 1977. New Copy 2CDs ... Out Of Stock
One of the greatest 70s moments from film composer John Addison – music scored for an all-star movie that was maybe a bit too all-star in the long run – but which features Addison really knocking it out of the park with the music! The vibe is more like the best 60s war dramas than you'd guess from the date – orchestrations that mix together bold passages of action with some more subtle dramatic moments – woodwinds and strings used by Addison with effortless ease, and often some nicely dark touches lurking in the deep backgrounds! Titles include "Human Roadblock", "Nijmegen Bridge", "Underground Resistance", "Before The Holocaust", "A Dutch Rhapsody", and "March Of The Paratroopers". 2CD edition – the original soundtrack album, plus a huge amount of bonus tracks – 35 more numbers from the original film recordings, wrapped up with very detailed notes as well!

✨✧ Neil InnesHow Sweet To Be An Idiot (with bonus tracks) ... CD
United Artists/Grapefruit (UK), 1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An unusual solo album from Neil Innes – a set recorded in the space between his time in Bonzo Dog Band and The Rutles! As with both of those groups, Innes shows an amazing talent for recording a song that sounds straight, but which has a really offbeat vibe – sometimes song-style parodies that have all the chops of an original – other times more goofy material that really shows why Innes would end up being such a great comedic partner with Eric Idle! The instrumentation on the set is great – thanks in part to the lead guitar and organ lines of Ollie Halsall – and titles include "Momma Bee", "Immortal Invisible", "Topless A Go Go", "Feel No Shame", "Singing A Song Is Easy", and "How Sweet To Be An Idiot". CD version adds in 10 more bonus singles – including "Recycled Vinyl Blues", "The Age Of Desperation", "Oyster", "What Noise Annoys A Noisy Oyster", and "Lie Down & Be Counted". CD

✨✧ Carlo RustichelliAvanti (with bonus tracks) ... CD
United Artists/Quartet (Spain), 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An American film – directed by Billy Wilder and starring Jack Lemmon – but one with a distinctly Italian-styled soundtrack, thanks to the music of Carlo Rustichelli! Rustichelli scores the film with a style that's quite like his early 60s work for Italian films – warmly romantic, with some nice old school touches – all served up in a nice blend of light strings, easygoing rhythms, and some moody touches on keyboards that almost feel like theremin! Tracks are mostly short, some of them sprightly – to fit the comedic mood – and a few have some more traditionally Italian themes too. Titles include "Cha Cha Cha", "The Morgue", "Miss Piggot", "Coffee & Croissants", "A Burial Front The Sea", "Permesso", and "Wendell & Pamela". CD features 5 bonus tracks too! CD
