Bernard HerrmannVertigo – Muir Mathieson/Sinfonia Of London ... CD
Mercury, 1958. Used ... $5.99
Bernard Herrman's classic spooky score to this great Hitchcock thriller. The music is often very intense, to perfectly suit the film's tone – and has that great jagged edge that Herrman brought to some of his other best soundtrack scoring. The tracks are long, and have a pretty edgy sound for the most part – but not without some more lush and romantic movements. An all time classic! Titles include "Prelude & Rooftop", "The Beach", "The Nightmare & Dawn", "The Necklace, The Return & Finale", "Goodnight & The Park", "Carlotta's Portrait", "Scene D'Amour" and more. CD

✨✧ Nucleus & Ian CarrTorrid Zone – The Vertigo Recordings 1970 to 1975 (Elastic Rock/We'll Talk About It/Solar Plexus/Belladonna/Labyrinth/Roots/Under The Sun/Snakehips/Alley Cat) (6CD set) ... CD
Vertigo/Cherry Red (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 6CD ... Out Of Stock
Seminal sounds from trumpeter Ian Carr and his Nucleus group of the early 70s – maybe one of the few jazz rock groups that was ever able to work with a fair bit of jazz in their sound! Unlike his contemporaries, who often started in rock first, then added some horns – Carr was already coming off an important 60s legacy, co-leading a group with tenorist Don Rendell – so the vibe here is like an extension of that very rhythmic, very tonal modern work – but with the addition of electrified instrumentation – thanks to the guitar work of Chris Spedding and keyboards of Karl Jenkins – who plays some fantastic electric lines throughout! The vibe is maybe a bit in the territory of early 70s electric work by Miles Davis and Donald Byrd (pre-Mizell for the latter) – but there's maybe a farther-reaching concept at play on many of the records, at a level that always helped the group cross over to the prog crowd, and move beyond just a straight jazz audience. Other key players include Brian Smith on tenor and soprano saxes – a really fantastic part of the lineup – plus Jeff Clyne on bass and John Marshall on drums – and as the albums move along a bit, the lineup shifts slightly, and also opens up to guests who include Kenny Wheeler and Harry Beckett on trumpets, Tony Levin on drums, and Norma Winstone on voice. And although some of the albums have been reissued before, this is the first set to really dive in completely – and bring together material from the Vertigo Records releases that include Elastic Rock, We'll Talk About It Later, Solar Plexus, Belladonna, Labyrinth, Roots, Under The Sun, Snakehips Etcetera, and Alley Cat.

Aphrodite's Child666 ... CD
Vertigo, 1970. Used 2 CDs ... $11.99
One of the coolest rock concept albums ever – and arguably the crowning moment for Aphrodite's Child – an incredibly hip Greek group from the early 70s – featuring a young Demis Roussos on vocals, and Vangelis Papathanassiou on organ, piano, vibes, flute, and a lot of other instrumentation! Vangelis composed the whole set – as an extended piece based on the Apocalypse of St John – and the album was recorded in Paris, away from their native Greece – in a time of political unrest and cultural upheaval that's clearly referenced in the music! There's a really wide array of textures and moods on the set – from sinister to soft, freaky to peaceful, all laid out beautifully with a sense of poetry and power that few other groups could match! Irene Pappas performs a recitation, and also gives some sexy sounds on the classic "Infinity" – and other tunes include "The System", "Babylon", "Loud Loud Loud", "The Four Horsemen", "The Seventh Seal", "Aegian Sea", "The Marching Beast", "Capture Of The Beast", "Altamont", "Seven Trumpets", and "Hic Et Nunc".

Gentle GiantGentle Giant (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Vertigo/Alucard (UK), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.99
The amazing first album from Gentle Giant – a crucially overlooked group from the key years of the UK jazz-rock scene! The album definitely comes at things from a rock perspective, but there's a hell of a lot of fusion in the mix too – especially in the guitar and keyboard parts, which jump around with these sharp edges that rival some of the more jazz-based fusion from the European scene of the 70s – played to perfection, even amidst some of the record's higher-concept lyrics – which themselves kind of fall into a King Crimson camp. In fact, the mix of lyricism and all-out jamming makes the record a good comparison to the Crimson camp of the time – yet for some reason, these guys have never gotten as much cred over the years as that group. Titles include "Nothing At All", "Isn't It Quiet & Cold", "Why Not", "Giant", and "Funny Ways". LP, Vinyl record album

Juicy LucyJuicy Lucy (with bonus track) ... CD
Vertigo/Esoteric (UK), 1969. New Copy ... $14.99
The debut album from Juicy Lucy – an American act who made a trip to the London scene in the late 60s, where they found a way to forge a whole bunch of influences into a very unique groove! Had they stayed back home in Cali, Juicy Lucy might have gravitated towards the Bay Area scene, and ended up sounding a bit freakier and hippieish – but in London, they sharpened their sound, unleashed some deeper bluesy currents, and put the whole thing together with a mix of wit and flair that really set them apart! The group boasts great lead vocals from Ray Owen, a cool mix of electric and acoustic sax parts from Chris Mercer, strong lead guitar from Neil Hubbard, and a range of great sounds from Glenn Ross Campbell – who uses steel guitar and mandolin in ways that are very different than American groups of the time. Forgive the album its quickly-dated, exploitative cover – because it's got a lot more to offer than that – and titles include "Chicago Northwestern", "Train", "Nadine", "Mississippi Woman", "She's Mine She's Yours", and "Just One Time". CD features the bonus track "Walking Down The Highway". CD

Ian MatthewsTigers Will Survive ... LP
Vertigo, 1971. Very Good Gatefold ... $5.99
One of the 2 terrific records ex-Fairport Convention singer-songwriter Ian Matthews cut for the Vertigo label in the early 70s – built around Matthews wonderful vocals and acoustic guitars, but with a tighter rhythmic backdrop the the typical post folk trope! The key here is warmth – particularly in Ian's vocals, which carries over on some great little tunes! Tracks include "Tigers Will Survive", "Midnight On The Water", "Right Before My Eye", "Hope You Know ", "Please Be My Friend ", "House Of Unamerican Blues Activity Dream", "The Only Dancer" and more, LP, Vinyl record album

Thin LizzyFighting (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Vertigo, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
Forget the silly cover image, because this is a gem of a record from Thin Lizzy – pre-Jailbreak, but a set with all the best elements of that classic firmly in place! The guitars are sublime – almost a chorus at times – and Phil Lynott's got that nasty sneer perfectly focused – that special wit and sensitive soul that could still come out with a brashness that matches the power of the group's instrumental approach! And as with some of their best albums, there's these really special little songs nestled in the mix – non-hits, but beautifully personal – and the kind of no-filler songs that really make these Thin Lizzy classics so great. Titles include "Rosalie", "Wild One", "King's Vengeance", "Spirit Slips Away", "Silver Dollar", "Ballad Of A Hard Man", and "For Those Who Love To Live". LP, Vinyl record album

Warner, 1970. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $999.99
Huge, dark, and heavy – an album of mythical proportions, and that's a lot to say for a mainstream album – especially one that crossed over as big as this one! It would be hard to imagine the modern rock landscape without this album or group, who provided the template for so much music to follow – and the soundtrack to many bong-fueled excursions to the dark side – a huge legacy in sound, but one that may well still be best begun on this landmark self-titled album! Titles include "Black Sabbath", "The Wizard", "Behind The Wall Of Sleep", "NIB", "Wicked World", and "Warning". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ran Blake & Andrew RathburnNorthern Noir ... CD
Steeplechase (Denmark), 2020. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
This isn't the first album from pianist Ran Blake to feature the word "noir" in the title – but it's definitely a distinct set that's got a spirit that's all its own – a really beautiful meeting between the legendary modernist and tenor saxophonist Andrew Rathburn! At some level, the session reminds us of classic dates in this format – like meetings between Archie Shepp and Dollar Brand, or Gil Evans and Steve Lacy – but there's a slightly different spirit here, as the songs are relatively short – less long explorations of improvisational space, than they are these crisp statements by the artists paired together – each very individual in sound, but with a unified vision as they make their way through a rich array of themes from many sources. Titles include "Dr Mabuse The Gambler", "The Wild One", "Midnight Sun", "Strange Fruit", "Streetcar Named Desire", "Vertigo", "For Wayne", "Judy", and "Of The Little North Wind". CD

Iain MatthewsOrphans & Outcasts – A Collection Of Demos, Outtakes, & Live Performances (4CD set) ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), 1970s/1980s. New Copy 4CD ... $26.99
An insane amount of material from the enigmatic Iain Matthews – pulled from his personal archives, and featuring rare material with Matthews Southern Comfort, Plainsong, and some of his other projects – plus plenty of other tracks recorded on his own! These aren't just rough nuggets or dusty dregs – as Iain's at his best on most of this material, hitting that unique blend of UK singer/songwriter styling and American roots that made his presence during the early Vertigo Records years such a breath of fresh air – and which has always kept Matthews' records in some of the hipper record collections over the years. This is a revised, improved version of a package that Iain created for mail order customers at the start of the 90s – and features 69 rare tracks, including demos, alternates, live material, and plenty more – all with a big booklet of notes!

✨✧ YelloStella ... LP
Mercury, 1985. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Thank John Hughes & Ferris Beuller for the fame of this one – the album that pushed Yello over the top with the perennial favorite "Oh Yeah" – a tune that's been used countless times over the years since that famous soundtrack, and which still resonates on TV commercials and local news promos to this day! Yet despite the overplayed quality of that track, there's still a brilliance here that shows that Yello were capable of remaining creative even at the height of their fame – a talent for uncomplicated electronics that step out with quirky, playful modes that ooze charm and a sense of personal vision within pop music. Titles include "Oh Yeah", "Vicious Games", "Desire", "Domingo", "Let Me Cry", "Sometimes", "Angel No", "Ciel Ouvert", and "Desert Inn". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousEven A Tree Can Shed Tears – Japanese Folk & Rock 1969 to 1973 ... LP
Light In The Attic, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A much-needed look at the Japanese rock scene at the start of the 70s – one that was going through as many amazing changes as the world of music in the US and UK, but which has always been far out of reach for most listeners in the English-speaking world! The collection's not super-underground – a number of these artists recorded for major labels – but overall, the sounds within will be a fresh discovery for most ears – and a mindblowing one as well, with music at a free-thinking level that rivals some of the best work coming out on hip Anglo imprints at the time – like Harvest, Vertigo, or Island Records! Lyrics are all in Japanese, but all other aspects of the music echo the hippest Brit modes of the period – some folksy acoustic material, reworked with hipper jazzier currents – some broodingly dark sounds that would never have emerged a few years before – and an overall nicely organic vibe that really holds together all the way through. There's no avant, prog, or noisy material – which makes for a tight focus that really makes the whole thing feel very unified – and the notes provide plenty of background for novice English-speaking listeners, too. Titles include "Rokudenashi" by Fluid, "Mizu Tamari" by Fumio Nunoya, "Curry Rice" by Kenji Endo, "Sotto Futari De" by Kazuhiko Yamahira & The Sherman, "Otokorashiitte Wakarukai" by The Dylan II, "Zeni No Koyoryoku Ni Tsuite" by Ryo Kagawa, "Ware Ware Wa" by Tetsuo Saito, "Marianne" by Gu, "Boku Wa Chotto" by Harumi Hosono, and "Konna Fu Ni Sugite Iku No Nara" by Maki Asakawa.

BBE (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
John Morales has a wonderful talent for taking a funky track and making it sound even funkier – which he does beautifully here in this killer collection of old school tunes! Many of the numbers are vintage clubby soul from the late 70s and early 80s – and Morales has this great way of crystalizing all the best elements in the songs, and pulling them to the forefront – but all without ever ruining the integrity of the tracks that sounded so great in the first place! In other words, the work here isn't the imprint of some young DJ trying to overstate his presence – but a true music maestro who really knows what makes a club track great – a vibe that takes us back to the brilliant edits of the early NYC scene. All titles here are previously unreleased – and this 2LP set features four titles that include Morales mixes of "I'm Gonna Love You Just A Little More Baby" by Barry White, "You Got Me Running" by Lenny Williams, "Mind On You" by Level 42, and "Vertigo/Relight My Fire" by Dan Hartman.
