✨✧ David T WalkerDoo Doo/Love Vibrations ... 7-inch
Zea, Early 70s. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two of the best cuts ever recorded by guitarist David T Walker – both of them nice little numbers with a rumbling funk approach, and some tripped-out guitar that really hangs a groove nicely! Lots of nice flanging on the guitar makes it sound super-dope – and "Doo Doo" in particular has a messed up groove that we really like! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(NOTE – Vinyl has "Doo Doo" labels on both sides, but includes the listed titles.)

Zeal OnyiaTrumpet King Zeal Onyia Returns (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Tabansi/BBE (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $14.99 26.98
Zeal Onyia is definitely the trumpet king here – at least of the Nigerian scene in which this album was recorded – as he blows strong solos throughout, and really brings a lot of jazz-based energy to the highlife rhythms! The use of trumpet in a smaller combo mode is really great – and while most tracks groove like familiar Nigerian material from the time, the sense of solo work really sets things apart – and makes the whole thing a fantastic blend of highlife and jazz, at a level that maybe beats any other record we can think of! There's plenty of Nigerian music from this time that gets a nod, but this set is definitely one of the best – fantastic rhythms and really soulful trumpet lines – on titles that include "Egwu Olili", "Zeal Eze Opi", "Zeal Anata", and "Eluem Anaba".

ChicksSound Of The Chicks ... CD
Sundazed, 1966. New Copy ... $14.99 15.99
Tremendous girl group work from the New Zealand scene of the 60s – served up by a duo who've got a very special take on the music! The Chicks are sisters, and work together in a mode that's very hand in glove – singing the lyrics together on this host of groovy tunes, but with a style that's a bit more down to earth than some of the harmonies of other groups of this nature – almost like the girls are so excited and happy with the tunes, they're exclaiming together – instead of trying to craft some more complex patterns with their vocals! That style makes these tracks instantly compelling, and bursting with energy – and backings have a tight Brit invasion style, nicely romping and rave up – with an odd male vocal urging the sisters on at points. Titles include "Heart Of Stone", "I Don't Want To Spoil The Party", "The Birds & Bees", "I Feel Fine", "I Want You To Be My Boy", "Looking For The Right Guy", and "Goodnight Baby". CD

Ray ColumbusNow You Shake – The Definitive Beat, R&B, Pop, & Psych Recordings 1963 to 1969 ... CD
RPM (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $6.99 13.99
A great collection of work from Ray Columbus – a New Zealand rocker of mid 60s vintage, but one who works here with mod sounds to rival much bigger names in London at the time! The collection begins with a core set of work by Ray Columbus & The Invaders – a super-sharp combo who have this sense of energy and fire that's a bit like Paul Revere & The Raiders, but more tuned towards beat group sounds – boundless energy that makes the rest of the combo a perfect fit for Ray's spirited lead vocals. The set then moves into solo material that Columbus recorded on his own, and with groups The Challenge, The Art Collection, and Fire – all with stylistic shifts that follow some of the British forays into trippier sounds after the initial beat boom – or some more compelling, more sophisticated material that Columbus really carries off well as a solo act. Titles include "She's A Mod", "I'm Finding Out", "She's Back Again", "Till We Kissed", "We Want A Beat", "In Memory Of Today", "Happy In A Sad Kind Of Way", "Los Angeles", "I'm Good For You", "Polka Dot Resistance", "Kick Me", and "East Pinkerton Street".

DevoOh, No! It's Devo ... LP
Warner, 1982. Very Good+ ... $19.99
Hey Spud boy! You need this record. Definitely underrated in the grand scheme, Oh No! finds the boys rocking a much more straightforward, nerdy computer funk sound. It sort of takes a page from the 80s Kraftwerk playbook with the grid-patterned 80s computer tomfoolery, albeit with a far more goofball pop groove. Includes the completely great singles "Time Out For Fun","Peek-a-boo!" and "That's Good", plus "Out Of Sync", "Explosions", "Patterns", "Big Mess", "Speed Racer", "What I Must Do", "I Desire" and "Deep Sleep". LP, Vinyl record album

FarmyardBack To Fronting ... LP
Polydor/Wah Wah (Spain), 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $32.99
The second and final album from New Zealand's Farmyard – a record that continues some of the jazzy spirit of their debut, but which also goes into territory that's a bit more rough and raw too! It's almost as if the group were getting their wind a bit more – and finding a way to make a statement that was bolder than before, but still had a quality to set them apart from the rest – plenty of flute and tenor from Andrew Stevens, but mixed with more electric guitar and bass – on a set of tunes that have hard rock appeal, but also plenty of sharp proggy changes! Titles include "Me The Dog Ma & Dear Ol Dad", "All In Your Mind", "Looking For A Place", "Feeling Pretty Good", "Fantasia/New Road", and "Too Much Wrong". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 500!)

FarmyardFarmyard ... LP
Polydor/Wah Wah (Spain), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
An obscure jazzy group from the New Zealand scene of the early 70s – definitely a rock act at the core, but one who make wonderful use of flute and tenor from Andrew Stevens, who really helps give the record a special sound of its own! There's also some vibes, Indian percussion, and other unique instrumentation in the set – mixed with guitars that are as acoustic as they are electric, giving the whole thing a quality that's almost in the folk funk side of the universe – dreamy one minute, groovy the next, and the kind of record that's well worth seeking out as a unique rarity! Titles include "Da Woiks", "I Sit Alone", "Which Way Confusion", "Through My Window", "Learning Bout Living", and "Those Days Are Gone". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 500 – in a silkscreaned plastic shopping bag, just like the original!)

Boyd RaeburnBoyd Meets Stravinsky ... CD
Savoy/Atlantic, Early 50s. Used ... $5.99
You may not know the name of Boyd Raeburn – but you'll certainly recognize the great players on this album, a hip set that includes Dizzy Gillespie, Hal McKusick, Lucky Thompson, Serge Chaloff, and Oscar Pettiford. Raeburn was a modernist swinger – in a mode that was a bit like some of the work that McKusick was laying down during the mid 50s, but with traces of the postwar work of Stan Kenton, and maybe a hint of the straight side of Raymond Scott. The tracks on this set are some of the finest sides he ever cut – and they sparkle with imagination and modernist zeal, yet never fail to swing hard and tight. Titles include "March Of The Boyds", "Boyd's Nest", "Boyd Meets Stravinsky", "Dalvatore Sally", and "Interlude (Night In Tunisia)". Plus, this CD features rare tracks not on the original LP – "Hep Boyd's" and "Rip Van Winkle". CD

UnderdogsWasting Our Time ... LP
Pye/Wah Wah (Spain), 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
A heady second set from New Zealand's Underdogs – a record that has the group reduced to a trio, yet somehow finding even more power in their overall sound! There's a nicely thoughtful approach to the music – not some of the full-on hard rock of other power trios of the time, but instead a balance between roots and more freewheeling moments – the latter of which really take over on the album's closer, a monstrous 10 minute jam! The record echoes some of the blues/hard styles of the UK scene of the time, but also has a personality that's very much its own – maybe because the whole thing was cooked up in far away Auckland. Titles include "Tomorrow's Child", "Garden Of Eden", "Clover In The Air", "Is He Going To Die", "It's A Blessing", "Old Grey Dog", "Name The Day", and "Duchess Of Montrose". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 500! Great reissue – in a flipback cover, like the original.)

Eugene WrightWright Groove ... LP
Philips (UK), 1962. Very Good ... $24.99
A very unusual album from bassist Eugene Wright – one of his few dates as a leader, despite famous work in the Dave Brubeck quartet! The set is great – with very strong work from Wright, who's maybe more soulful than usual – and recording here in New Zealand with a hip quartet that features Lew Campbell on piano, Laurie Lewis on baritone, and Don Branch on drums. The music is as creative as the Brubeck work from a rhythmic perspective, but has a deeper vibe overall – given the strong presence of the bass, the very strong baritone solos, and excellent piano from Campbell. All tunes are originals from Wright – very nice material! LP, Vinyl record album

VariousAK79 ... CD
Ripper/Flying Nun (New Zealand), 1979. New Copy ... $13.99
A legendary compilation from the New Zealand scene – and one that may well have kicked off the huge run of music from the island nation in the 80s! AK stands for Aukland, where all the music was recorded – and 79 stands for the year, 1979 – when all these cuts were done, mostly as demo recordings – but also as a great way to illustrated the unexpected punk rock energy that was bubbling under at the time. Titles include "Saturday Night Stay At Home" and "Megaton" by Suburban Reptiles, "Mysterex" and "True Love" by Scavengers, "Never Been To Borstal" and "She's A Mod" by Terrorways, "Suicide 2" and "I Am A Rabbit" by Proud Scum, "To Love Song" and "Squeeze" by Toy Love, "First In Line" and "True Love" by Marching Girls, and "Hate Me Hate Me" and "Feel So Good" by Spelling Mistakes.

✨✧ LanuThis Is My Home ... CD
Ubiquity, 2007. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A long-awaited full length set from Lanu – aka Lance Ferguson of The Bamboos – and a record that's one of the best blends of soul, funk, and cosmic vibes we've heard in many many years! Lanu's been bubbling under for quite awhile – first issuing singles from his native New Zealand, then more recently from the UK – but with a full album of work under his belt, the depths of his talents are finally revealed – an amazing tapestry of soul and sound that carries echoes of older work by Roy Ayers, Fela Kuti, 4 Hero, and Herbie Hancock! But the grooves here are way better than even those easy references might make you think – none of this "fake fusion" that sometimes shows up a bit too much these days – and really the real deal from start to finish – with incredible keys, complicated rhythms, and a soaring, joyous approach to the music that's totally great. Guests include Kero One, Quantic, Aloe Blacc, Abby Joyce, No Comply, and Simon Grey – and titles include "Dis-Information", "Mother Earth", "Runaway", "Aow Leuk", "Don't Sleep (parts 1 & 2)", "Let You Grow", "Shine", and "Rise". CD also features 2 bonus tracks – "Beachcomber" and "Beijo Do Sol" – both gems from older singles! CD

✨✧ VariousHeed The Call – 17 Of The Choicest Maori/Polynesian Soul, Funk, & Disco Tracks From Aotearoa ... LP
Vostock (New Zealand), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A little-heard assortment of rare funk tracks from the 70s – all music with a unique hybrid of styles, originally only issued for the small scene in Aotearoa – which most of us know as the nation of New Zealand! The music here draws on both American funk and south Pacific styles – and comes across in a way that's different than some of the more familiar Australian funk and soul of the same time – maybe more indie to that nation's major label polish – filled with the kinds of tracks that hardly need to answer to anyone in the mainstream – just the freaky folks on the dancefloor at a party! The tunes were recorded over the space of a decade, but almost all of them have a strong mid-70s vibe – pre-disco, but upbeat funk – with sharp instrumentation by musicians who'd clearly be comfortable playing other styles, but who often work here to back up a soulful singer in the lead. Titles include "A House For Sale" by Mark Williams, "You Can Dance" by Collision, "Voodoo Lady" by Dalvanius & The Fascinations, "That's The Kind Of Love I've Got For You" by The 1860 Band, "Mr Funky" by Inbetweens, "I Need Your Love" by Golden Harvest, "You Can Do It" by Tina Cross, "Disco Queen" by Mark Williams, "Don't Give Your Life Away" by The Pink Family, "There's A River" by Sonia & Skee, "Mr Music" by Ticket, "She's Knocking At My Door" by Johnny Rocco Band, "Sweet Inspiration" by The Yandall Sisters, "Total Man" by The Totals", and "Who Do We Think We're Fooling" by Larry Morris.

✨✧ VariousSoul Messages From Dimona ... LP
Numero, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
One of the grooviest compilations we've ever seen – a collection of work by American expatriates living in Israel at the end of the 70s – a hip blend of US funk and Hebrew spirituality! Most of the work here sounds like the best spiritual funk of the 70s – very much in an Earth Wind & Fire tradition of joy, love, and life – played in righteous ensemble mode with a good deal of jazz in the instrumentation alongside funkier rhythms on the bottom! The artists on the set originally hailed from Chicago and Detroit – and there's still strong influence from those scenes, particularly the early 70s sound of the Windy City. If you dig The Pharaohs and Pieces Of Peace, you'll find plenty here to love – and as usual with Numero Records, the whole thing comes with an amazing booklet of notes – the full story of this unique musical diaspora, supported with some great images as well. Titles include "Go To Proclaim", "Equilibrium", "Prince Of Zeal", "Junky Baby", and "Savior In The East" by Soul Messengers; "Holding On" and "Dimona" by Tonistics; "Daniel", "Burn Devil Burn", and "A Place To Be" by Spirit Of Israel & Soul Messengers; and "Hey There" and "Modernization" by Sons Of The Kingdom.

✨✧ Elvis CostelloUnfaithful Music & Disappearing Ink (hardcover) ... Book
Penguin Books, 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A wonderfully-written autobiography from Elvis Costello – a book that's not only completely illuminating for any fan of his music, but which stands quite strongly on his own, even if you're not a longtime fan of the man himself! The volume almost sets a new standard for musician autobiographies – as Costello approaches the project with the sort of zeal he's brought to his new "second role" in popular culture over the past few decades – that of being as much of a raconteur as a singer, as much as a spotlight on other genius as he is a genius himself – always handled with the sense of pointed prose and honesty you'd find in his music. The book is huge – and filled with black and white photos too. A heavy 672 pages, and hardcover. Book
(The spine has a small remainder mark.)
