Archie Shepp - Coral Rock (1970) (LP)


Archie Shepp
Coral Rock (LP) (1970, America Records)

"The moment I heard the strung out moans from Shepp's belly I was ecstatic. Bought it for $5 without a cover on the spot. Swirly drugged out free jazz by some of the best at it. The title track is a mammoth bitch you love. " - Modo

The Song of Galadriel (1984, Bandura)

Wayne - At Last! (Unknown)


Wayne
At Last! (Unknown, Unknown)

"It's a shame there is literally no information out there on Wayne, aside from the fact that he's on SITKZ Vol.2. If you can let yourself enjoy something like this, I find it one of the most exceptionally fluid and lucid outsider records of all time! And if Prea's Song doesn't make you want to cry, yr a stone." - DD

There's a blip on the rip and some pretty ugly skipping in Love At First Site, but the rest of it is too good to pass up.

Jerry Solomon - Past The 20th Century (1971) (LP)


Jerry Solomon
Past the 20th Century (LP) (1971, Fountain Records)

"Outsider music at its finest. Sometimes reminds me of an unprivileged and musically inept Brian Wilson crossed with Thanksgiving, Iggy Pop and Sand. Alienating sounds for the struggling bunch.

Firstly, thanks to the Old Junk or Treasure? blog for the original post.


"Like the title suggests, dance you will with Arjune Popo. Catchy and sincere disco/funk-lite brilliance.

Unfortunately, there is very little information on this gentle magician. Where are you Arjune Popo? Play at my wedding?" - Modo
