Country Funk is one of those bands that you see as the opening act on tons of old 60s rock posters, but I've never heard them. Will have to check them out.

This new Country Funk comp is so sweet.

also, though it does not have the same style as his work on the country funk comp, the larry jon wilson record that drag city put out is really really great and i try to recommend it whenever possible. instead of being soulful country-groove it is stripped down acoustic guitar & singing. recorded shortly before his death. he does some covers and a bunch of originals and it is great all the way through. his voice is amazing.

Pretty great call from the LITA folks. And kept me away from chasing those Rene 45s on ebay.

the s/t country funk album is pretty sweet. for awhile i got it mixed up with the s/t from the band country, the album covers not helping much at all either. i found them both for $1 once.

Yesssss. Can't believe Bobby Darin's track fits so well.

Amoeba, Fish, Monkey, Shame (GOTT PUNCH II HAWKWINDZ), Thursday, 26 July 2012 03:58 (seven years ago) link

Those Direction records of Darin's have been at the top of my list for a while.

Trip Maker, Thursday, 26 July 2012 04:00 (seven years ago) link

i have the darin rekkerd that is taken from.. it's pretty cool even if it seems like dylan aping sometimes.

Yeah, we had that pass through the shop a while ago and I wish I had checked it out now!

d'angelo - voodoo reissue coming in time for christmas. I love these guys.

ILX Lightwave Customer Support (Sufjan Grafton), Thursday, 25 October 2012 01:34 (seven years ago) link

Guys. They're doing an LHI Singles Box for Record Store Day 2:

So fucking cool. The fact that they put Honey Ltd. on there leads me to hope they'll reissue that album.

I hate Tig Notaro so much I gave Louis C.K. a dollar (GOTT PUNCH II HAWKWINDZ), Thursday, 25 October 2012 04:01 (seven years ago) link

How do I get that thing? I've never shopped at a record store day. Do I have to wait in line or something?

And wow, that Jim Sullivan U.F.O. record is soooo good.

wk, Thursday, 25 October 2012 05:05 (seven years ago) link

That Lee Hazlewood box set looks amazing!! I wish it wasn't a record store day release and something you could actually buy.

JacobSanders, Thursday, 25 October 2012 05:19 (seven years ago) link

oh man i would love a proper reish of the honey ltd. i have that 45 and it is so distorted

I'd recommend going to your local shop and asking them if they can get it for you. That's probably your best shot. It is kind of ridiculous, and RSD feeds into the Pokemon Record Collector mentality I really hate, but it is a pretty cool looking set.

I'm hoping LITA does a re-release after a while, like they did with last years Hazlewood Record Store Day release.

that box set looks great. I just got the LHI Years 2lp comp. over the weekend. between that and Country Funk I'm on a big Light in the Attic kick lately. they are awesome.

dmr, Thursday, 25 October 2012 16:14 (seven years ago) link

Wow @ that singles box. Pity my RSD-friendly local record store has just closed down.

Considering they shipped four Lizzy Mercier Descloux CDs to me in unsealed box, they can definitely do wrong. (They actually sent two packages to me like that—the first time the CDs got lost on the way across the U.S.)

New compilation of Japanese folk (with the marvellous title of Even A Tree Can Shed Tears) is an absolute stunner. So much gorgeous music, so many artists I've never heard of who I'll now need to check out. Big recommendation.

bamboohouses, Sunday, 12 November 2017 21:14 (two years ago) link

Absolutely lovely comp with invaluable lyric translations by Hisham Bharoocha, whose name is unfortunately misspelled in the liners.

New Pacific Breeze comp is pretty great. Not sure it's as great as the first volume, need a few more spins to determine.

THIS TRACK is dope as hell

Paul Ponzi, Monday, 4 May 2020 18:27 (four weeks ago) link

three weeks pass...

Paul, you'd like the "Tokyo Nights" compilation.

i had this on repeat for longer than i care to say

Liking Pacific Breeze 2 almost as much as the first... that was more than enough for me to order the CD and dig a bit deeper on some of this stuff. All these compilations are getting me back into Japanese music after a long time away ٩(◕‿◕)۶

Spring Cleaning 20202 Sale happening. Lots of interesting looking stuff here. Anyone have any favorites from this list they'd recommend? I have a few things in my cart already but I'm gonna spend at least $75 to get the free shipping. Not a huge fan of horror soundtracks (though I can be convinced if there's one that's especially good or unique) but everything else is fair game:

Paul Ponzi, Sunday, 31 May 2020 11:41 (three days ago) link

Oh, and I did love that link above, maffew12! Thank you. If the whole comp is of that caliber I'm going to have to pick it up.

Paul Ponzi, Sunday, 31 May 2020 11:42 (three days ago) link

Thanks for the spring cleaning tip. I picked up the 8LP Giant Sand box for $54!

Cow_Art, Sunday, 31 May 2020 12:46 (three days ago) link

Yeah, the Giant Sand box is an incredible deal. I snagged a couple of the Bevis Frond records from them recently too.

daily growing, Sunday, 31 May 2020 16:04 (three days ago) link

Spring Cleaning pages are staggering, but---The ones I'm most familiar with here are the Blaze soundtrack, if you're into outsidery Texas singer-songwriters (not too outsidery: Blaze was cherished and covered by ornery inside-outside stars like the latter-day Merle Haggard etc). This one made my Nashville Scene Top Ten. Also, even more in thee same vein, because vintage and various artists who are smokey pillars of East Nashville etc, the Heartworn Highways soundtrack, from the classick 70s documentary, with Townes Van Zandt, David Allan Coe, Guy and Susanna Clark and so on. Country Funk Vol. 2 has some keepers, though also some "OMG we're white stoned country *and* funky!" self-amazed goobers.
A friend of mine used to play Bernard Hermann's Taxi Driver quite a bit, and though I never heard it when my friend wasn't talking, the music came over and around him pretty well.
Only heard The Exorcist in the theater, but music and sound design by far the best elements of that otherwise lurid-to-ludicrous/70s-as-hell-flick (not nec. a bad thing, but sonics best of all).
Haven't heard those particular Goblin soundtracks, or other titles, but how bad could they be? Ditto those Lizzy Mercier Descloux titles, judging by the ZE reisses I do have.
Early 70s live Funkadelic, Bert Jansch, maybe This Heat, The Camberwell Now.

k*r*n koltrane (Simon H.), Sunday, 31 May 2020 19:25 (three days ago) link

If you're at all interested this edition of the Taxi Driver Soundtrack is the one to own. It's the only release that contains the complete score. The original release is sort of a train wreck; the first side is some chirpy shit that wasn't even in the movie IIRC.
