John ColtraneDial Africa (French pressing) ... LP
Savoy/Musidisc (France), 1958. Very Good .... $8.99
French issue of some of Coltrane's groundbreaking recordings for Savoy from the late 50s – recorded in the company of a super-hip sextet with Wilbur Harden on trumpet, and done in a way so that the tracks open up nice and long, in strong modal grooves that point the way towards 'Trane's later work in the 60s. Three long tracks – "Gold Coast", "Dial Africa", and "Oomba". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a bit of light wear, with some staining along the bottom and on the back.)

New Steely DanCountdown To Ecstasy ... LP
ABC, 1973. Used .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Superb work from Steely Dan – and a record that really shows them hitting perfection in the studio! The core sound of this one's jazzier than before – with some great help on instrumentation from Victor Feldman, Lanny Morgan, Bill Perkins, and other west coast jazzers – all helping the group sound great on some of the tightest tracks ever written by the team of Becker and Fagan! Ecstasy is definitely in reach with the sound of this set – a sublime effort all the way through that really set a whole new standard in 70s rock! Includes classics like "Bodhisattva", "Your Gold Teeth", "My Old School", and "Show Biz Kids". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing.)

New Kay-GeesKilowatt ... LP
De-Lite, 1978. Used .... Out Of Stock
Not as hard and funky as the early stuff – with that disco sound that was dominating the De-Lite imprint at the time – but also not too bad, as the groove is in a fast funk mode, with plenty of real instrumentation, in that tight east coast studio mode of the mid 70s. Includes their "Kay-Gee's Theme Song", plus "Fat Daddy", "Celestial Vibrations", "Space Disco", and 2 versions of the title track "Kilowatt". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a gold promo stamp.)

New Rare GemsMillion Dollar Disco ... LP
California Gold, 1978. Used .... Out Of Stock
A great little west coast disco combo – one that's got equal parts soul and club in the mix, and who are working here in a nicely rough indie mode that's a contrast to east coast efforts at the time. The feel here is almost that of a fuller soul record with slight disco arrangements added in – done in the style that many of the eastern groups were using in the first few years of disco, before the genre had become a bit more codified and overblown. Tracks are all longish, and vocals are by either Debra or Charles Givings. Titles include "Music Is For Dancing", "I Like Disco Music", "Disco Jam", "Love's Hall Of Fame", "You've Got My Love", and "Million Dollar Disco". And are these the same guys who went on to record for Casablanca as Rare Gems Odyssey? LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cut corner, light wear, and a large name in marker.)

Elmer BernsteinStaccato ... LP
Capitol, 1959. Very Good .... $11.99
A great lost crime jazz soundtrack – penned by Elmer Bernstein in the style of some of his best work from the 50s! There's a real Man With The Golden Arm feel here – as the orchestra rises and falls in a mode matching the Staccato title – and solos break out with a fluid and brazen sort of feel – plenty of jazz to show the west coast origin of the recording! Players include Don Fagerquist and Pete Candoli on trumpets, Dick Nash on trombone, Ted Nash and Dave Pell on saxes, John Williams on piano, and Barney Kessell on guitar. The show itself is pretty darn cool – and starred a young John Cassavetes as detective Johnny Staccato – a role that supposedly gave Cassavetes enough money to shoot the film Shadows in his free time! Great all the way through – with tracks that include "Staccato's Theme", "Thinking Of Baby", "Poi & Juice", "Deadly Game", "Night Mood", "Jazz At Waldo's", "Like Having Fun", and "MacDougal Street Special". LP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label pressing. Cover has mostly split seams, light wear, and a bit of aging.)

New Billy StrangeSecret Agent File ... LP
GNP, 1965. Near Mint- .... $7.99
Although there were plenty of easy and studio musicians who tried to cash in on the success of the Bond-era spy soundtracks, few did it as well as Billy Strange! He gets a helping hand here from Les Baxter and a boatload of west coast session greats like Carol Kaye, Tommy Tedesco, Dennis Budimir, Don Randi, Leon Russell, Hal Blaine and even Glen Campbell, on a bevy of popular spy and action themes – like "Thunderball", "Man Alone", "I Spy", "Our Man Flint", "Get Smart", "Goldfinger", "The Ipcress File", "I Spy", "Our Man Flint", "OO7", "Run Spy Run", "The Rockford Files" and "The Prisoner" – all done by Strange with that great twangy guitar sound that he already had in the first place, and which was probably ripped off by John Barry for the Bond scores! LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo pressing.)

New Ohio PlayersOhio Players Gold ... LP
Mercury, 1976. Used Gatefold .... Temporarily Out Of Stock
It's the mid 70s, and the Ohio Players were certainly turning out a lot of gold! Their move to Mercury Records from the smaller indie Westbound was a real winning move – as it gave them a smoother soul feel that only expanded their groove, not restricted it! This tasty "best of" set features most of their top work from those years – with killer tunes that include "Love Rollercoaster", "Fire", "Skin Tight", "Who'd She Coo?", and the great "Sweet Sticky Thing"! LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear, a couple of small stains, and a bit of pen on the back.)
