Surely, the band who recorded a track that influences Black Sabbath to cover and release it as their first single had to have been doing right! lt was very catchy but also hypnotic Evil Woman (Don't Play Your Games With Me) which made the US Billboard Top 20 and then opened the band's first album, released in autumn 1969. It may be hard to believe, but this is the CD debut of this great, but underrated title! Crow had a truly unique sound characterized by quite aggressive electric guitar and Hammond organ parts, combined with a distinctive blues and even soul elements (like horn section on three tracks). Sometimes their music resembled the early Steppenwolf and Vanilla Fudge - which certainly was not bad. This CD edition has been carefully remastered from the original, analogue source.

And here we go, with 13 E.P.s by ten smoking, '60s psychedelic heroes, in glorious 24-bit sound. This is one cool artifact. Here's, The Thirteenth Floor Elevators kick it off and are represented by four smoking tracks: "You're Gonna Miss Me", "Reverberation", "Fire Engine", and "Tried To Hide". They are followed by The Seeds, The Five Americans, The Electric Prunes, The Shadows Of Knight, and We The People, with two EPs each; Music Explosion, Count Five, Shakespeares, and Syn. This is one of those nifty, price-friendly sets that collectors die for, and it happens to have a boatload or great music that one might already have, but not in this way. This is a fetish project worth its price.

Pianist Larry Vuckovich revisits his landmark 1980 recording on this combined reissue and new release. Prefiguring the much-lauded work of Dave Douglas and the Tiny Bell Trio, guitarist Brad Shepik, and even John Zorn, the Yugoslavian-born Vuckovich combines the ethnic melodies and rhythms from his native Balkans with modal jazz. Never as avant-garde as his contemporaries, Vuckovich nonetheless pushes the boundaries of both jazz and folk styles. The original tracks featured the brilliant vibe playing of Bobby Hutcherson, who unfortunately does not reprise his role on the four new pieces.

A veteran pianist deserving of wider recognition, Larry Vuckovich has spent several decades on the American jazz scene since leaving his native Yugoslavia for the U.S. in the early '50s. For the most part the songs on these 2011 sessions focus on bop and hard bop from the late '50s and early '60s, ranging from solo piano to trio, quartet, and quintet, featuring tenor saxophonist Scott Hamilton on five selections. Vuckovich's working group includes tenor saxophonist Noel Jewkes, bassist Paul Keller, and drummer Chuck McPherson. Vuckovich's solo treatment of Thelonious Monk's "Pannonica" mixes glistening lines with jaunty bop, while his approach to Hoagy Carmichael's "Stardust" is lush with a few Tatum-inspired runs added for fun.

When Caterina Valente was elaborating the concept for her new international album in 1968, the radio speakers were still blasting out Scott McKenzie's 1967 hymn of praise for the flower generation of San Francisco: "Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair". The new "swinging London" became the place of birth of new recordings by artists such as The Beatles, The Kinks and Petula Clark. And so, Caterina Valente and Eric van Aro, who was her husband and manager at that time, decided to do a tribute to sixties pop. They called the LP "Sweet Beat", centred around four successful songs by British artists plus four more hits that were actually performed by American artists in their original version.

Released as a double LP on Chisa/Blue Thumb in 1972, Hugh Masekela's Home Is Where the Music Is marked an accessible but sharp detour from his more pop-oriented jazz records of the '60s. Masekela was chasing a different groove altogether. He was looking to create a very different kind of fusion, one that involved the rhythms and melodies of his native South Africa, and included the more spiritual, soul-driven explorations occurring in American music at the time on labels like Strata East, Tribe, and Black Jazz as well as those laid down by Gato Barbieri on Bob Thiele's Flying Dutchman imprint. The South African and American quintet he assembled for the date is smoking. It includes the mighty saxophonist Dudu Pakwana and drummer Makaya Ntshoko, both South African exiles; they were paired with American pianist Larry Willis and bassist Eddie Gomez, creating a wonderfully balanced, groove-oriented ensemble.
