Impulse! and 60's Soul

What's this, Friday on a Saturday?
Well we hope you all had a very nice Christmas, and that you'll forgive us for taking some time out to get in the holiday spirit. To make up for it, we'll be open two more hours than on regular Saturdays, 11-17, and we're just about to add a nice batch of Impulse and 60's Soul.
Plenty of Coltrane of course, but nice titles like Phil Woods - Greek Cooking and Tom Scott - Honeysuckle Breeze as well. In the Soul department there's all the O.V Wright you need, Darrell Banks - Is Here! plus the highly recommended LP by The Jaedes on Athena.

Afro, Latin, Brazil & Rock

This week will be a bit different from last week's Soul & Funk update, with a Rock, Latin, Brazil and Afro theme. Hard to top the amount and the peaks of the Soul & Funk special, but we have a lot of interesting and fresh titles for all wallets.
The Latin department includes King Nando, The Harvey Averne Dozen and El Party con la Crema, and one of the Brazilian highlights has to be the Marcos Resende & Index LP.
The Rock section gets strengthened by heavyweight items like Prof. Wolfff and Subject ESQ, as well as British rockers The Sorrows and the less dance-able The Madcap Laughs LP by Syd Barrett.

Next week brings us into Free Jazz & Spiritual Jazz territory, and the week after that goes in more uptempo direction with Modern Soul, Disco & House.

Weekly update 7/11 - Soul & Funk

Many have been waiting for a heavy Soul & Funk update, and we like to think that this week's update lives up to the expectations. Terrific stuff all across the board, from sweet soul like The Brief Encounter (including "Where will I go") and The Four Mints, to funkier pieces like Baby Huey and Steam Heat, trying not to forget Ron Henderson & The Choice of Colour, Rayfield Reid, Joey Gilmore, a sealed OG of Alice Clark and The Chapparrals - Shake your head. Those of you who like it mellow & midtempo need to check the Tommy Tate album with "I can't do enough for you", truly incredible stuff.

Next week will be a good week for fans of Rock, Afro and/or Latin!

Euro jazz + hip hop!

Back on track again for a European jazz update, plus a small but nice batch of hip hop LPs. Many titles deserve mentioning, but special honors must go to Bertil Strandberg's stunning "Cirrus" (top 3 Swedish jazz albums ever?) and Clarke Boland Sextett's "Music for the small hours" on original German press.

Hip hop fans can pick from classic albums by Gang Starr ("Moment of truth"), Eric B & Rakim ("Paid in full"), Dr Dre, Group Home, Jeru The Damaja, Ghostface Killah and Main Source, all on original US issue.

Next week sees a high-octane soul & funk update, expect some terrific 60s & 70s stuff, both LPs and 45s. We have been buying heavily over the past couple of months, and the piles of records waiting to be put out for sale are truly mouth-watering, both for quality and quantity. In other words, we look forward to finishing 2014 in fine style!
