✨✧ Captain Beefheart & His Magic BandUnconditionally Guaranteed (180 gram clear vinyl pressing) (2021 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Mercury (Italy), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A set that's maybe a bit more standard song-based than some of the Captain's other records, but an album that's still filled with all the special magic that makes Beefheart so great! The magic band includes work from Zoot Horn Rollo on some wonderful glass finger guitar, plus keyboards from Mark Marcellino, bass from Rockett Morton, and plenty of vocals and harmonica from the Captain. Titles include "Upon The My-O-My", "Sugar Bowl", "New Electric Ride", "Magic Be", "Full Moon, Hot Sun" and "This Is The Day". LP, Vinyl record album

Franco BattiatoFoetus (180 gram clear yellow vinyl pressing) ... LP
Vinyl Magic (Italy), 1972. New Copy Gatefold ... $29.99
One of the most bizarre early works by Italian composer Franco Battiato – a record whose original cover featured a fetus on the cover, an inside image of his paper-mache mother, with a walk-in birth canal, and a subtitle that reads "return to the new world"! The musical style mixes Battiato's mid 70s electronic minimalism with an approach that still retains elements of experimental rock – in that the songs have straighter vocal passages than some of his more abstract work, with lyrics in Italian in a fairly conventional format, layered over strange textures on keyboards, sound effects, and electronics. Titles include "Una Cellula", "Energia", "Fenomenologia", "Anafase", and "Mutazione". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Egisto MacchiFauna Marina (180 gram clear blue pressing) ... LP
Leonardi/Vinyl Magic (Italy), 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An unusual album of underwater sound library music from Egisto Macchi – one that offers up a very unique take on the small genre – like some of Macchi's other records from the 70s! Egisto's ocean is a place of darker moods and deeper currents – not the bright waves of sound or watery instrumental moments of records with a similar theme – but a place of shadows, caves, and monsters of the deep – served up with music that moves between melody and more atonal moments! Titles include "Squali", "Granchi", "Pinguini", "Delfini", "Polipi", "Crostacei", "Attinie", and "Plancton". LP, Vinyl record album

Miles DavisRound About Midnight (180 gram vinyl – mono edition) ... LP
Columbia, 1956. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99 25.98
Thelonious Monk may have written the title tune, but Miles Davis makes it all his own here – blowing with a subtle moody magic that makes the album one of his true treasures from the early Columbia Records years! John Coltrane's along on tenor sax – helping Davis expand the sound the pair first forged on Prestige – and also present is the rhythm trio of Red Garland on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on drums – impeccably recorded here with a wonderful sense of space, and almost a bridge between older Miles modes, and the genius to come. Titles include Miles seminal take on "Round Midnight", plus "Tadd's Delight", "Dear Old Stockholm", "Bye Bye Blackbird", and "A Leu Cha". LP, Vinyl record album

KraftwerkTour De France (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
EMI/Astralwerks, 2003. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $24.99 26.99
A return to genius for one of the most important bands of the past 50 years – and a wonderful little record that we'd rank right up there with the best of their albums from the 70s! The album builds off the "Tour De France" single the group first recorded back in the early 80s – a classic tune with a huge influence that unfortunately was never on an album. And while this album bears the title and cover of that original single, the sound and style are a bit different – more in the mode of longer-worked electronic epics like Radio-Activity or Trans Europe Express – particularly the latter one, as this set has Kraftwerk taking a musical tour that matches the famous bicycle race – gliding around the countryside on waves of electronic magic! The whole thing's excellent – as brilliant as we could have hoped – and it's a long-overdue follow-up to one of our favorite tracks! Titles include "Chrono", "Vitamin", "La Forme", "Elektro Kardiogramm", "Titanium", "Aero Dynamik", and "Regeneration". LP, Vinyl record album

Lothar & The Hand PeopleCome Along – The Exodus 1966 (white vinyl pressing) ... LP
Beat Rocket, 1966. New Copy ... $13.99 24.99
Lothar & The Hand People gave the world one of the greatest psych albums ever issued by Capitol Records – but this set of earlier recordings shows the group in a very different light – raw, noisy, and very garagey – much more in the territory of The Seeds or The Sonics! The recording is live, but feels more like it was captured in a small basement room than a larger rock club – as there's a very forward sound to the whole thing, as if the group were trying to rip the performance space out of its foundations, while they work their own rough-edged magic on tunes that are familiar, but which sound very different in this setting – a perfect illustration of the genius of garage at its best! The guitar lines are wonderful – and titles include "If I Have To Choose", "Walking The Dog", "Baby Please Don't Go", "Come Along", "Who's Been Talking", "Gloria", "That's Another Story", and "Nobody Knows".

Don PeakePeople Under The Stairs (180 gram colored vinyl pressing – with bonus tracks) (2021 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Terror Vision, 1991. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $32.99
Don Peake did a great job for the music on this 1991 Wes Craven thriller – mixing all sorts of keyboard elements with a larger selection of sounds – all served up on short little tracks that really create a spooky sort of magic as the album unfolds! Some tunes are twenty seconds long, others over two minutes in length – and together, the mix of light strings, keyboards, and drum machine elements has all the dynamic thrills of watching some slasher film on VHS in the wee hours of the morning! Titles include "Cellar Friends", "The Roof", "Go To Hell", "You Hurt Your Mother", "Brother & Sister", "Gutting Leroy", "Cold Coin", "The Basement", and "Metro Gas Co". LP has a few bonus tracks – original audition recordings! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bob JamesOne (180 gram yellow vinyl pressing) ... LP
CTI/Evosound, 1974. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A landmark record – not only for Bob James, but a seminal release for CTI and the Fender Rhodes as well! This is the album where all the magic starts – the first of many extremely successful albums that Bob recorded during the 70s under his own name, and almost the birthplace of the modern hip hop keyboard sample line! The album's stuffed with great numbers – including a sublime reading of "Feel Like Making Love", and the classic "Nautilus" – a slow, dark, funky tune that's worth the price of the album alone! Other tracks include "Valley Of The Shadows", "Night On Bald Mountain", and "Soulero". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Grover WashingtonGrover Live (180 gram gold vinyl pressing) (2020 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Lightyear, 1997. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Late live material from Grover Washington – previously unreleased, and proof that the saxophone master was still plenty darn soulful towards the end of his career! The instrumentation reminds us a bit of Grover's early 80s dates for Elektra – a bit more keyboard driven than some of his 70s material, yet still put together with that unmistakable Washington charm – that great ear for space and soul that always made Grover's records stand out from most of his fusion contemporaries. Washington plays his familiar tenor and soprano, plus a bit of alto and baritone as well – and titles include "Take Five", "Mystical Force", "Winelight", "Sassy Stew", "Uptown", "Mr Magic", "Let It Flow", and a cool Medley of hits.

John FaheyVoice Of The Turtle (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Takoma/4 Men With Beards, 1968. New Copy Gatefold ... $19.99 23.98
A tremendous early statement from the great guitarist John Fahey – and a record that has all his best ideas coming into really sharp focus! Fahey was a very collaborative person right from the start – even as a record collector, before his own recordings – and that spirit is felt here on some of the duet tracks, in which John and associates perform these acoustic instrumental tunes that plumb the past of underground America, but turn it out again into something completely new and fresh – not folk revial, but more a reworked fantasy of the nation, almost as a refuge for the changes of the late 60s. The sound is beautiful – with a flute accompaniment here, a bit of fiddle there, and even Fahey duetting with himself on guitar – thanks to the magic of overdub. As usual with these early Takoma records, the style is very fluid – sometimes very tied to the 78rpm generation, but other points much more towards the freewheeling guitar introspection of some of Fahey's underground contemporaries. The overall sound is amazing, too – as Fahey almost uses the studio as an additional instrument, but in very subtle ways. Titles include "Bottleneck Blues", "Bill Cheatum", "Lewisdale Blues", "Bean Vine Blues", "A Raga Called Pat (part 3)", "A Raga Called Pat Part IV", "Train", "Je Ne Me Suis Reveillais Matin Pas En May", "The Story Of Dorothy Gooch (part 1)", "Nine Pound Hammer", and "Lonesome Valley".

Ultramagnetic MCsCritical Beatdown (180 gram pressing – with bonus tracks) ... LP
Next Plateau/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1988. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $43.99 45.99
An undisputed indie classic from the end of the 80s – as Ultramagnetic MCs burst out of the Bronx with a fresh sound that challenged the new waves of styles emerging from Long Island! The group are super sharp and on point right from the start – with a young Kool Keith already overflowing with that special sort of magic he brought to his lyrics, and production from Ced Gee that really gives the whole thing focus! This is one of those records that only those in the know picked up at the time – but it's become a completely essential document over the years – thanks to titles that include "Watch Me Now", "Ego Trippin", "Ease Back", "Funky", "Kool Keith Housing Things", "Feelin It", "Ced Gee (Delta Force One)", "Traveling At The Speed Of Thought", "One Minute Less", and "Ain't It Good To You". 2LP pressing features bonus tracks "A Chorus Line (12" version)", "Funky (12" version)", "Bait (12" version)", "Traveling At The Speed Of Thought (hip hop house mix)", "Mentally Mad (12" version)", and "Ego Trippin (bonus beats)".

VariousMen In The Glass Booth – Groundbreaking Re-edits & Remixes By The Disco Era's Most Influential DJs – Part 1 (5LP set) ... LP
BBE (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 5LP ... $69.99 74.99
An incredible collection – and one that fills in a crucially under-documented side of the New York dancefloor generation – the wealth of special mixes and edits that were made for that city's important DJs for their own use in clubs! The package sorts through a mountain of never-issued acetates, and goes way past conventional disco or rare club collections – to showcase the special mixing talents these DJs brought to their re-presentation of the material – which was usually done on tape, then pressed onto acetate discs for their own private use! Those rare treasures are brought forth here – in a beautiful package that's also overflowing with fantastic notes that finally give this lost history its due – all handled by Al Kent – who's a hell of a mixer himself, as well as an underground club historian. Vinyl part 1 features five different records, all with lots of space for the tunes to stretch out – and titles include "I Just Wanna Say I Love You (John Luongo rmx)" by Leon Collins, "What About Love (Tony Gioe rmx)" by Marboo, "Ten Percent (Walter Gibbons Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by Double Exposure, "Inside America (Rick Gianatos disco queen acetate edit)" by Juggy Murray Jones, "Dancing Free (John Luongo rmx)" by Hot Ice, "Black Water Gold (Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by The Sunshine Band, "Magic Bird Of Fire (Francois Kevorkian Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by Salsoul Orchestra, "It's Good For The Soul (Jay Negron Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by Salsoul Orchestra, "My Love Is Free (Walter Gibbons disco madness rmx)" by Double Exposure, "Reaching Out For Happiness (Jonathan Fearing rmx)" by Fay Hauser, "Let Me Be Your Fantasy (Tom Savarese rmx)" by Love Symphony Orchestra, "The Beat Goes On & On (Jim Burgess rmx)" by Ripple, "I Wanna Be Near You (John Morales Sunshine Sound acetate edit)" by Ruby Andrews, "I've Been Looking For Somebody (Walter Gibbons rmx)" by TC James & The Fist O Funk Orchestra, "The Disco Scene (Rick Gianatos rmx)" by Lake Shore Drive, "Bumpsie's Whipping Cream (Tom Savarese rmx)" by TC James & The Fist O Funk Orchestra, and "Janice (Bobby DJ Guttadoro rmx)" by Skip Mahoney.

✨✧ Eddie Lockjaw DavisBacalao ... LP
Prestige, 1959. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pretty rare one – and one of the best albums that Eddie Lockjaw Davis ever recorded! The album takes Eddie's usual trio with Shirley Scott on organ, and adds in some extra bongos and conga – by Luiz Perez and Ray Barretto, respectively – to create a Latinized version of soul jazz, with a very nice swing! The album grooves well on nearly every track – almost in the mode of Eddie's classic Afro-Jaws album – and the setting really brings out the best in his tenor work, cutting across lines in a way that almost hearkens back to his R&B days. Titles include "Dobbin The Redd Foxx", "Last Train From Overbrook", "Fast Spiral", "Dancero", and "That Old Black Magic". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ray BarrettoTogether ... LP
Fania, 1971. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
An early 70s killer from Ray – recorded right in the same era as most of his best albums! The feel here is strongly in the salsa mode – as Ray steps effortlessly from the Latin Soul era into a whole new decade of musical magic. And like the best of his 60s work, Ray's salsa cooks at a level that's far hotter than most of his contemporaries – with lots and lots of incredibly tight percussion, impeccable instrumentation, and even a more soulful approach to the vocals than usual. The album's got a short Latin soul groover called "Together", which has tight bass and a very catchy lyric; an extended Latin jazz version of "Tin Tin Deo", with some incredible piano that goes way way out over the groove; and plenty of other great Latin numbers, like "Invitacion Al Son", "Vive Y Vacila", "De Donde Vengo", and "Hipocresia y Falsedad".

Kudu/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of Esther Phillips' biggest comeback albums from the 70s – a classic set that takes her deeply soulful vocal approach, and sets it to some sweet jazz funk backings – served up by guitarist Joe Beck, who almost gets equal credit on the album cover! The rest of the lineup is equally great – with alto from David Sanborn, more horns from The Brecker Brothers, and even a bit of work from Steve Khan – all fusion superstars in their own right, but who never eclipse Esther's lead. Titles include a good version of Grover Washington's "Mr Magic" – with the same funky undercurrent as the original – plus the tracks "One Night Affair", "I Can Stand A Little Rain", "Hurtin House", "Turn Around Look At Me", and a semi-hit version of "What A Diff'rence A Day Makes".

Blue Note, 1958. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the most legendary albums on Blue Note – or maybe THE most legendary albums on Blue Note – a stunning session that shows what the label was capable of when it was really hitting on all burners – from the lineup to the music to the production – and even the classic cover art on the front! The album's a crowning achievement for pianist Sonny Clark – a player who'd already brought greatness to the world before the record, but really knocks it out of the park during the session – leading a razor sharp lineup that includes Art Farmer on trumpet, Jackie McLean on alto, Paul Chambers on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on drums – all coming together with some magic in the studio, crafting a sound that forever put Blue Note on the map! Tracks are long, open-ended, and almost effortlessly soulful – and titles include Clark's classics "Cool Struttin" and "Blue Minor", plus versions of "Sippin At Bells" and "Deep Night".

Dread At The Controls/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1979. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Mikey Dread's at the controls, and the album's a classic example of his ability to bring many different creative strands together at once – working the same sort of magic on record that he did on his famous radio show! The record's this wonderful mix of dubby rhythms, spacey production, and vocal touches that kind of slide in and out of the mix – all with a vibe that makes you feel like you've stayed up late into the night, just to tune into some far away station where sounds like these come out of the ether like messages from outer space! The set features work from Sly and Robbie on bass and drums, plus Ansel Collins on organ, Augustus Pablo on electric piano, Earl Chinna Smith on guitar, Vin Gordon on trombone, and Deadly Headly on tenor – plus some crucial electronics from Franklyn Bubbler Waul! Titles include "Saturday Night Style", "Industrial Spy", "Mikey Dread In Action", "Technical Selection", "Operator's Choice", "Headline News", "Comic Strip", and "Pre-dawn Dub".

Beautiful live work from Bill Evans – issued here for the first time, and the kind of special concert that really makes a great addition to his classic catalog! Bill Evans live can really be something wonderful – and that's definitely the case here, as he makes this personal magic with the keys of the piano – Evans-esque balancing of silence and sound, with painterly colors that always feel natural and organic, never forced – like Bill's fingertips are just spreading out, and channeling sound through the instrument! Rhythm is from Eddie Gomez on bass and Elliot Zigmund on drums – both players whose work here goes far past the conventional – and titles include "Sareen Jurer", "Sugar Plum", "Two Lonely People", "TTT", "Up With The Lark", "Blue Serge", and "Nardis".

Lion, Early 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A totally cool collection of unusual cumbia cuts from 70s Peru – music that definitely earns the psychedelic tag promised in the title, given its heavy use of electric guitars and trippy production! The style here is different than more familiar cumbia from Colombia – rooted in the rhythmic approach, but taken to really new territory by the artists on the set – some of whom were likely garage and psych combos, able to turn their style towards the new groove of the time! Many of the tracks are instrumentals – which furthers their unusual feel, as the vibe is almost like some unusual Latin take on surf music – and titles include "La Negrita" by Los Blancaguay, "Bongocero" by Los Telstars, "Sueno Magico" by The Black Cats, "Soul Finger" by Los Escaramujos, "Marihuana" by Los Darlings De Huanuco, "Je T'Aime Moi Non Plus" by Santanita, "Cuarto Oscuro" by Los Zheros, and "Las Oleadas" by Ranil Y Su Conjunto.

This is the kind of thing that had us scared to death of west coast hippies when we were kids – and for good reason, too – as the album really shows the depths of the mind when exposed like this – and almost has us thinking that despite any outdated aesthetics of the period, there's kind of a creepy power of magick lurking far below.

Magically moody music from Richard Band – sounds that are maybe a bit less creepy than image on the cover, but which transform nicely as the set goes on! Many of these cuts are longish – almost like mini-suites of soundtrack themes – often with strings used in these nicely-stepping ways – familiar and dramatic at some points, but more offbeat at others – with the most amazing highlights being these weird vocal bits – which sound like more atmospheric musings from the folks who live in Whoville from the Grinch cartoon!

A special vinyl release of one of the most striking volumes of the legendary Ethiopiques series – a set that focuses on the mad saxophone work of Getachew Makurya! The recordings on this collection are all from 1972 – and they feature the deep-toned Mekurya blowing in a strange and otherworldly tone, usually over spare backings that include percussion, piano, and/or organ – making for a sound that's almost like some of Pat Patrick's work for Sun Ra, but with a decidedly more ethnic feel! The compositions are all very basic, and very rhythmic – and Makurya's sax work snakes over the top in a really magical way. Titles include "Akale Wube", "Tezeta", "Shemonmwanaye", "Yene Hassab Gwadegna", "Ambassel", "Almaz Yeharerwa", and "Yegenet Muziqa".

The set features a totally fantastic tight quartet with Art Blakey playing hard hard hard drums, Cedar Walton jamming on piano, and Shorter blowing away in a perfectly magical way on a bunch of great originals. The material's fantastic, the sound is great, and the whole thing's one of Shorter's best albums ever! This was supposed to be Shorter's 3rd album for the label, and who knows, it might have saved them and kept him away from Blue Note if it was released, but such was not the fate of the session – as it only ever came out on vinyl in this mid 70s release on the short-lived Vee Jay International label. Tracks include "Tenderfoot", "The Albatross", and "Ruby & The Pearl". CD

Cadet, 1958. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
A rare treasure from Yusef Lateef – one of his hardest to find albums, recorded right around the same time as his magical work for Savoy! The record has Lateef playing in his local Detroit area – working with Terry Pollard on piano, William Austin on bass, and Frank Gant on a host of percussion instruments. The tracks have that open, percussive, and exotic feel that we love the most in Lateef – soul jazz taken to a very righteous territory, and one of the first powerful flowerings of the Detroit underground. Includes a really long version of "Morning", plus "Let Every Soul Say Amen", "Brazil", and "Woody N You". 60s issue of an album originally titled Yusef Lateef At Cranbrook. LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue fade label stereo pressing. Cover has some wear, aging and staining. Vinyl has a small mark that clicks during "Morning" but plays fine otherwise.)
