Classic psych, funk and hard rock from India — a ton of rare and unreleased sides by the group’s different lineups, luxuriously packaged, with copious notes, reminiscences, and rare ephemera.
Plenty of TKOs, the Colombians for example, beautifully presented. A moving, mind-boggling testament to Afrobeat, with shout-outs from Ghana, Trinidad, the US and elsewhere. Last few vinyls. Don’t miss.
Covers of Pete Rock classics like The World Is Yours, Straighten It Out and T.R.O.Y.; interspersed with new instrumental originals.
Intensely sought-after, highly-considered, late-60s psych rock — homespun, funky, introspective — privately pressed in the dark, hazy twilight of flower power. Plus D’s back pages, expertly restored.
Psych, funk, folk, jazz, lounge, boogie and straight-up-weirdness from American private press albums. Warmly recommended… the book, too.
Classic Zamrock, cooking up Hendrix and Taj Mahal, the Congolese rumba and Afro-beat.
Zambia’s first independently released pop record. ‘Loose, woozy African spinoff of the Velvet Underground: folk-rock and garage-rock that still didn’t stint on the fuzz-tone’ (New York Times).
Solo Ililonga — a combination of traditional Zambian rhythms, deep funk and unrestrained fuzz rock.
Pre-Revolution, psychedelic, funky prog from Iran, 1972-79. Loads of music, restored from K’s original master tapes; lavishly documented. The box of sevens is beautifully done.
A tremendous compilation, soulful and searing, sublime and heavy, beautifully documented… strongly recommended.
The Zambians’ second LP of funk, psych, and fuzzed-out Afrobeat. 64–page booklet includes interviews with Rikki Ilionga and co. The vinyl edition adds sides from rare sevens, 1972-6.
Old-school soul from the Blackalicious camp.
Rare and unreleased funk, jazz, soul and world-psych — gems from twenty years of recordings — by Now-Again stalwarts the Whitefield Brothers, Karl Hector And The Malcouns, the Poets Of Rhythm, and co.
The complete works of the Bay Area vibraphonist, 1968-70: deep, modal, spiritual jazz.
Beautifully boxed and presented.
Lovely, heartful seventies soul, the collected works of the Flint, Michigan singer, in lineups like Hunts Determination, smartly done. Apparently Reginald’s aunt had a strong southern accent; the hospital mis-heard.
The very first recordings, and the Roller Coaster Ride and Hoagy Carmichael’s Music Shop albums. Monty Stark’s plugged-in, freaky vibes, Abercrombie’s fuzz guitar… for Ahmad Jamal. ‘Hendrix meets Bitches Brew.’
