USED CD ALERT:

This week’s used CDs are notable for their recent vintage. More than a couple of these will end up populating staff year-end round-ups, including efforts from Blood Orange, Foxing, John Prine and Mac Miller. We also have plenty of the old battleaxes, so look for essential sides from The Band, Rolling Stones, Dylan and Black Flag. Continuing on last week’s jazz haul, peep for crucial albums from Les McCann and Eddie Harris, Jeff Lorber, Nina Simone and “Search for the New Land” by Lee Morgan, easily one of my top 10 Blue Notes. Hard-driving work from the MC5, Nirvana and Sleater-Kinney round out the week.
