    The Sun Ra ArkestraThe Antique BlacksArt Yard

    In this album Sun Ra blends elements of free jazz, off-key synth explorations, and experimental theatre into an other-worldly concoction that doesn’t crop up anywhere else in the Arkestra’s massive discography.

    Although Sun Ra wouldn’t have called Earth home, there were a couple of cities that proved to have considerable significance on him and his music, and Philadelphia was one of the places that he really felt in his element. The vitality you can hear on Antique Blacks is a testament to the unique energy of the community around The Foxhole Cafe in Philly.

      Sun RaDisco 3000Art Yard

      Legendary session recorded in Milan in 1978, this quartet recording gives John Gilmore, Michael Ray and Luqman Ali the space to improvise and solo more extensively than with the full Arkestra. The result is an astounding synergy of individual virtuosity and group interplay, but it's the man himself who arguably steals the show with the rhythmic atmospherics of "Dance Of The Cosmo Aliens".

      MoondogSnaketime SeriesCornbread Records

      Snaketime Series is one of the earliest and rarest of Moondog’s recordings, originally released in 1956. “Snaketime” is what Moondog himself referred to as his unique sense of time in music, what he called “a slithery rhythm”. And indeed, almost nobody else was making music as unique as this in the 1950s, drawing influence from city sounds, and working on many of his own instrumental invitations, Snaketime Series is truly cutting edge American avant-garde. Reissued on 180 gram LP with deluxe jacket, and a download card.

      Studio One DancehallSoul Jazz Records

      Fantastic, mind-blowing, awesome new collection of killer Studio One dancehall and proto-dancehall!

      Featured here is a new collection spanning Studio One’s dancehall period – singers and deejays on classic Studio One rhythms, studio and electronic wizadry from the Brentford Road headquarters, lots of rare 12” singles, all effortlessly brought together to nice up the dance.

      When Clement ‘Sir Coxsone’ Dodd first ruled the dancehalls of Kingston in the 1950s, fighting off the soundsystem competition of Duke Reid, King Edwards and others, few could imagine how far the reign of Studio One would last. 

      But the emergence of  ‘Dancehall’ as a distinct style of reggae at the end of the 1970s, as upstart competing producers began recording vocalists and deejays performing over replayed classic Studio One rhythms, in many ways made the influence of Clement Dodd’s vision more omnipotent than ever before (and lasting to this day).

      Not surprisingly, Clement Dodd’s creativity and business acumen made him quick to respond to this musical phenomenon – and he soon began voicing the new stable of Studio One singers and deejays, such as Sugar Minott and Lone Ranger, over original classic Studio One rhythms recorded in the late 1960s – to produce some of the most innovative, time-bending and creative music of his career.

      This album comes as CD with slipcase, super-loud, super-heavy triple vinyl album with free download code and as a digital download.
