ZombiesOdessey & Oracle (expanded & remastered) ... CD
Fuel 2000, 1968. Used ... $8.99
An incredible album – one of the greatest rock albums of the 60s, and a record we'd place right up there on the shelf next to Pet Sounds or Forever Changes! The arrangements are sublime – proof that the Zombies were growing way past just a simple Brit Invasion style, into a world of complicated orchestrations, subtle songwriting, and some of the most baroquely beautiful vocals ever recorded in the service of pop music! The whole thing's amazing – the kind of essential record we never tire of – and tracks include "Changes", "Care of Cell 44", "Rose For Emily", "Hung Up On A Dream", "Friends Of Mine", and "Butcher's Tale". Expanded version features a total of 22 tracks – including Colin Blunstone gems "She Loves The Way They Love Her" and "Smokey Day", plus a number of different mixes of other tunes, and the great "Conversation Off Floral Street".

✨✧ ZombiesBBC Radio Sessions ... LP
Varese, Mid 60s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great side of the too-small Zombies catalog of the 60s – rare material recorded for BBC Radio – almost all of it with the same sort of great fidelity as their famous singles! The music here spans the years 1964 to 1968 – starting with some early material with a grittier edge, and featuring a surprising handful of soul music covers, too – including tracks by Curtis Mayfield, Stevie Wonder, and Bo Diddley – in addition to the group's own originals. Covers include "This Old Heart Of Mine", "Loving You Is Sweeter Than Ever", "Just A Little Bit", "Soulville", "It's All Right", and "For You My Love" – next to Zombies originals "She's Not There", "What More Can I Do", "Friends Of Mine", "Whenever You're Ready", and "Just Out Of Reach". Also includes some cool other bits – including "Kenny Everett Interview & Jingle", plus "Colin Talks About The Continent", "The Zombies Find America", and "Different Instruments" – all interview passages.

Colin BlunstoneOne Year (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Epic/4 Men With Beards, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 21.98
Amazing solo work from ex-Zombie Colin Blunstone – his first album after parting ways with his former group – and one of our favorite albums of all time! Blunstone's vocals were already amazing in The Zombies – especially near the end – but this set takes things even further, by blending his sublime lyrics with spare arrangements that often just feature simple string passages and warm piano parts – subtle accompaniment that leaves Colin strongly in the lead! The songs are wonderful – penned to recall the changes and issues of the year after the parting of the group – with plenty of help from old buddies Rod Argent and Chris White too. There's never been another record like this again, and there never will be – one of the true treasures of the greatest generation of music! Titles include "Let Me Come Closer To You", "I Can't Live Without You", "Smokey Day", and "Say You Don't Mind" – plus a fantastic cover of "Misty Roses", and the more rocking "She Loves The Way They Love Her".

✨✧ Childish GambinoAwaken My Love (with download) ... LP
Glassnote, 2017. New Copy ... $18.99 19.99
Childish Gambino once again transcends anything you might be expecting from an actor/musician – this is not some vain star trip at all, but a worthy, boundary-busting effort – and a pretty sizable step away from idiosyncratic, yet accessible hip hop into spacey pop funk! Strong stuff, following his own path in respectable, highly rewarding fashion. Includes "Me And Your Mama", "Have Some Love", "Boogieman", "Zombies", "Riot", "Redbone", "Terrified", "California", "Terrified", "The Night Me & Your Mama Met" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Morse Code TransmissionMorse Code Transmission ... LP
RCA/Return To Analog (Canada), 1971. New Copy ... $16.99
A hard rock gem from early 70s Canada – recorded with this cool production style that seems to push everything up around the edges, from the vocals, to the basslines, to the searing fuzzy guitars! The group do a great job of mixing in some airier numbers with the rockers – almost evoking a late Zombies/Argent vibe on some of the vocals, even though the approach is completely different – and the whole thing's a great bridge between late 60s psych and new 70s modes to come. Titles include "Freedom Train", "Today I'm Alive", "Souvenirs Of Our Days", "Time", "Hunting & Laughing", "The Friend", "One To One", "Fire Sign", and "Two Friends". LP, Vinyl record album

Sandhy & MandhyPara Castukis ... LP
Lion, 1969. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $8.99
Haunting work from the duo of Sandhy & Mandhy – a pair from the Buenos Aires scene at the end of the 60s, working in a weird mix of beat group styles and hipper rock rhythms! There's a slightly ethereal quality to the work – partly because of the way the pair trade back vocals, partly because of the light organ lines used to support the groove – which brings a haunting Zombies-like quality to the record at times – although produced with a bit simpler sound than Odyssey & Oracle! Most tunes are original, and showcase a surprising depth in songwriting – and some numbers feature some really cool percussion that complicates the sound nicely – pushing the duo past simple pop lines, into some of the headier territory of the late 60s South American scene. Titles include "Yo Te Buscare", "Hasta El Manana", "Lluvia", "La Chica Sola Y Triste", "Quisiera Olvidarte", "Esta Noche No Debes Llorar", and "Recuardo Hoy". Amazing vinyl reissue – very heavy cover and vinyl, and beautifully done overall! LP, Vinyl record album

ScientistScientist Rids The World Of The Evil Curse Of The Vampires ... CD
Greensleeves/Dub Mir, 1981. Used ... $14.99
Scientist spins out on a dub-driven power boat – scanning the swamps to drive out the vampires and a host of other ghouls too – all while reinventing Jamaican music in the process! The record's filled with lots of cool electric elements – those weird production effects and electronic doodles that make the music of Scientist so revolutionary – especially when spun out over a still-familiar backdrop supplied by Roots Radics, with a core essence that's very much from the pre-digital world of Jamaican music. Rhythm tracks were done at Channel One, and Scientist mixed the set at King Tubbys – a host of dub mini-masterpieces that include "The Voodoo Curse", "Dance Of The Vampires", "Blood On His Lips", "Cry Of The Werewolf", "the Mummy's Shroud", "The Corpse Rises", "Night Of The Living Dead", "Your Teeth In My Neck", "Plague Of Zombies", and "Ghost Of Frankenstein".

Vanilla FudgeVanilla Fudge ... LP
Atco, 1967. Very Good+ ... $11.99
One of the coolest concepts for a record in the 60s – and a set that's the first, and maybe crowning achievement of Vanilla Fudge! The set's mighty trippy – and often offers up very weird, fuzzy remakes of songs that were more mainstream hits for other artists in the 60s – tunes by The Beatles, Zombies, Impressions, and others – taken into really weird new territory by the group's jamming fuzz guitar, stark rhythms, and dark sensibilities. Genius Shadow Morton produced and directed the whole thing – which is one of his crowning achievements, and a great commentary on some of the more mainstream pop he was producing at the time. Titles include "Illusions Of My Childhood", "Eleanor Rigby", "Ticket To Ride", "Bang Bang", "She's Not There", "Take Me For A Little While", and "You Keep Me Hanging On". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ SecretsInfatuation – Singles & Demos 1966 to 1968 ... CD
Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great early work from The Secrets – a UK group that features early contributions from later singer/songwriter Clifford T Ward – but in a style that's much more group-oriented overall! Ward's already a hell of a songwriter – and loads of the cuts here are under-discovered nuggets that sparkle at a level that only a rare few Brit records of this time can do – sweet, but never poppy – clever, but never too much so – and often with a heartfelt, emotional candor that we might link to the best by The Hollies and Zombies. And in fact, there's an instant charm here that definitely recalls Hollies at their best – a way of doing a heck of a lot with just a little, and really bringing forth special qualities in the tunes without resorting to overdone gimmicks or studio interference – although the production here is pretty darn groovy too. The collection features loads of singles from the group, plus rare demos and unreleased tracks – all with richly detailed notes in the best Cherry Red tradition. Titles include "Infatuation", "She's Dangerous", "Such a Pity", "I Suppose", "Sympathy", "I Think I Need The Cash", "The Gloria Bosom Show", "Looking Down The Glass", "The Same Applies To You", "Teacher", and "I Intend To Please".

✨✧ ColoursColours ... CD
Dot/World Psychedelia (Korea), 1968. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the best American psyche albums we've heard from the late 60s – a near-perfect record that's head and shoulders above the rough experimentation of most other groups from the period! Colours spell their name with a definite British twist, and there's clearly a Beatles influence going on here – a sound that's almost pre-Sgt Peppers, but which has wonderfully complicated time changes, vocal parts, and production techniques that must have cost a pretty penny to such a little-known group! Horns and strings are arranged by Dave Roberts, and handled with a sensitivity that almost matches The Zombies' best at times – and the tunes themselves are a fresh variety of odd themes, including one number about robbing a liquor store. Titles include "Brother Lou's Love Colony", "Bad Day At Black Rock Baby", "Love Heals", "Rather Be Me", "I'm Leaving", "Cataleptic", "Don't You Realize", and "Lovin". CD

✨✧ Mike HarrisonMike Harrison/Smokestack Lightning/Rainbow Rider ... CD
Island/BGO (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
Three overlooked albums by British singer Mike Harrison – all brought together in a single set! First up is the self-titled Mike Harrison – a wonderful solo debut from the singer who made Spooky Tooth sound so great on their albums, maybe even sounding better here on his own! The album is clearly conceived and put together by Mike – with backup help from The Junkyard Band, who underscore the yearning, earnest qualities in his vocals – spun out with a snakey, raspy charm, with a sound that's maybe a more intimate take on territory explored by Procol Harum. The songs are great, and the whole record has a quality level that really attests to the all-great quality of Island Records at this point – with tracks that include "Pain", "Lonely People", "Mother Nature", "Call It A Day", "Damian", and "Wait Until The Morning". Smokestack Lightning is great solo work from Mike Harrison, ex-Spooky Tooth – a fantastic singer who should have been huge as a solo act – maybe a bit like Colin Blunstone, whose sound with The Zombies was so important, but could never have a huge career on his own – even while he created some wonderful albums in the process! This set's a well-crafted gem through and through – recorded at Muscle Shoals, but with a sound that's free of any of the hoke of those oft-used studios – as instead of bending to southern modes, Harrison uses the ace musicians to underscore some of the depth of his own approach in a really great way. Titles include "Turning Over", "Wanna Be Free", "Tears", "What A Price", and "Paid My Dues". Rainbow Rider has Mike Harrison maybe hitting some harder rock territory than before, with some roots rock moments – more a part of the overall sound of the group, and with some pretty heavy guitars up there in the lead – which seems to bring out a very different quality in Mike's vocals. Titles include "Okay Lay Lady Lay", "Like A Road Leading Home", "Maverick Woman Blues", "You & Me", "I'll Keep It With Mine", and "Friend". CD

✨✧ VariousOptimisim/Reject – Punk & Post Punk Meets DIY Aesthetic 1977 to 1981 (4CD set) ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 4 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A huge document of one of our favorite moments in the UK scene – a time that paralleled the rise of punk, but which also produced a fair bit of music in a very different vibe – even though the artists were inspired by the same sort of energy! Most of the groups here are exploding with new ideas – some loud and raw, some subtle and witty – almost all recorded with an "anything goes" quality, which includes some great ears for studio experimentation, but in a very simple way – making the few familiar instruments often sound unusual, and doing great things for the offbeat vocals too. Some of the artists here rose to greater fame in different modes a few years later, some only flashed briefly during this wonderful stretch of time – and the whole thing has a very big book-style package, with many pages of notes that really tie the whole thing together! 105 tracks in all – with work by Nightmares In Wax, Young Marble Giant, Blurt, Tesco Bombers, Au Pairs, Eater, Alternative TV, Tights, Victim, Art Attacks, Tea Set, Raincoats, Fatal Microbes, Disco Zombies, The Shapes, Spizzoil, Josef K, The Membranes, Blancmange, Sisters Of Mercy, The Fall, Scritti Politti, John Cooper Clarke, Subway Sect, They Must Be Russians, The Higsons, Sad Lovers & Giants, 23 Skidoo, Vivien Goldman, Eyeless In Gaza, Mo-Dettes, Medium Medium, and many more!

✨✧ Colin BlunstoneEnnismore/Journey ... CD
CBS/Voiceprint (UK), 1973/1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The second and third solo albums by Colin Blunstone – both great follow-ups to his legendary One Year set! Ennismore is filled with amazing tracks that are perfect for Blunstone's godlike voice – a surprisingly great set that shifts the focus a bit, but with a sound that's really wonderful. The production's a bit fuller than the string-quartet/piano sound of One Year – but the musicians still include most of Colin's old buddies from the Zombies, and Chris White and Rod Argent produced the album as well – coming up with some great inflections that really send home the gentle hooks of the album's tunes! Blunstone's vocals are as magnificent as always – breathily beautiful without sounding cheesy – which is a very fine distinction here, and one that keeps the album far from other adult pop of the time. Tracks include "I Don't Believe In Miracles", "How Wrong Can One Man Be", "Andorra", "Time's Running Out", and "How Could We Dare To Be Wrong". Journey is a bit less sublime than Colin's first two – with tracks that veer a bit more towards the soft rock sound of the 70s, with some compressed AOR touches in place of the floating instrumentation of earlier albums – but it still sounds mighty nice to our ears, as Colin's voice is always a treat, and the record has a irrepressible charm in its optimistic presentation of some of the material. Essentially, if you dig Colin lots, you'll still want this one – as it's got more than a few nice moments – and is more of an evolution of his solo work than a divergence from it. Titles include "Setting Yourself Up", "Smooth Operator", "Shadow Of A Doubt", "It's Magical", "You Who Are Lonely", "Beginning", and "Keep The Curtains Closed Today". CD
