Hey, the Rolling Stones’ 50th anniversary isn’t the only ancient history to get hopped up about this year — here are some other treasures from the vaults.

OMNIBUS :: Eccentric Soul:: Numero Group:: $250:: The saintly staff of Numero have been campaigning for nearly a decade on behalf of some of the most obscure vinyl sides ever cut, focusing on regional soul and R&B oddities that, in sum, form an alternate history of modern American music. This, their 45th release, is a compendium of tracks that didn't fit on any of the prior 44, a massive cup-runneth-over of 45 45s that gives lavish treatment to 90 sides of criminally ignored funk and soul radness.

  •   GLISS | LANGSOM DANS  |  February 01, 2013
