New Marisa AndersonMercury ... LP
Mississippi, 2013. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Lovely instrumental work from Marisa Anderson – guitar sounds both acoustic and electric, played in a style that's certainly folksy – but often a bit less traditional than you might expect! There's these cool darker tones around the edges here – a quality that maybe starts with John Fahey, but also echoes some of the more simply expressive solo guitar work of the post-punk generation – especially on the electrified numbers that let the fuzz ring out around the edges, and really help the tunes take shape. The album's quite unique, and very different than most of the contemporary guitar underground – and titles include "The New Country", "Sinks & Rises", "Galax", "Red Sky", "Embudo", "Trinity", "Mojave", and "Furnace Creek".

New Merc & Monk (Eric Mercury & Thelonious Monk III)Merc & Monk ... LP
Manhattan, 1985. Used ... Out Of Stock
Eric Mercury joins up with Thelonious Monk III – and the result is a batch of tightly-snapping 80s soul tunes that are heavy on the keyboards! Mercury sings lead vocals, as does Monk – but Theo also supplies all of the musical backings for the set, penned and programmed on a host of keyboards and drum machines! The sound's relatively electric, but the vocals are still nicely upfront and honest – thanks mostly to Mercury's presence on the record. There's a bit of flash on the weaker moments, but the better points are more straight ahead in an 80s groove mode – and titles include "Pretty Little Girl Of Mine", "What's Your Name", "We Can Make It", "The Thing That Looks The Best On You", "Carried Away", "Baby Face", and "Thelonii".

Cannonball AdderleyJump For Joy ... LP
Mercury, 1958. Good ... $4.99
An interesting early side by Cannonball that captures him before he'd really found his voice – and when the folks at Mercury still didn't really know what to do with him. The record's a tightly arranged set of tracks from Duke Ellington's musical "Jump For Joy" – with arrangements by Bill Russo, and small group playing that includes Emmett Berry, Bill Evans, Barry Gabraith, Jimmy Cobb, and a small string section. The sound's actually quite haunting – and Cannon's alto solos remind us more of some of the best "with strings" soloing heard on Verve in the early 50s than they do his later soul jazz classics on Riverside or Capitol. That's ok with us, though – because the session's still got a lot to offer in that respect, and Cannonball handles the solos wonderfully! Titles include "Bli Blip", "Just Squeeze Me", "Nothin", and "The Tune Of The Hickory Stick". LP, Vinyl record album

New Gene AmmonsJug Sessions ... LP
Mercury, Late 40s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $2.99
A double LP set pulled together in the mid 70s of Jug's bluesy bop sides cut in the late 40s for Mercury. Sidemen include Junior Mance, Albert Ammons, Israel Crosby, Gene Wright and lesser known Chicago locals like Wes Landers, Leo Blevins, Jess Miller and Ernest McDonald. As you'd expect the blowing is is nice and soulful, but nice and concise with the shorter takes that groups were doing in the era for the recording formats of the day. 28 numbers in all, including "Concentration", "Red Top", "Idaho", "Shufflin The Boogie", "McDougal's Sprout", "Hold That Money", "Shermanski", "Harold The Fox", "Jeet Jet", "Odd-En-Dow", "Going For The Okey Doak", 'Blowing The Family Jewels", "Dues In Blues", "Daddy Sauce's Airlines", "ABdullah's Fiesta", "Brother Jug's Sermon" and "Little Slam".

Gene AmmonsLight, Bluesy, & Moody ... LP
Wing/Mercury, Late 40s/Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Essential early stuff by Jug! The record is a 50s compilation of singles that Jug cut for Mercury during the late 40s, when he was transforming from a hard swing player into a firey bopper – but one who was capable of infusing his solos with a rich sense of emotion that was enough to bridge both generations of jazz. The tracks are great, and are essential listening I the career of Gene Ammons. The original recordings are very tough to find – and even this album doesn't show up that often. Filled with great tracks – like "Red Top", "Hot Springs", "Concentration", "Jeet Jet", and "Odd En Dow". LP, Vinyl record album

Harry ArnoldHarry Arnold + Big Band + Quincy Jones = Jazz! ... LP
Mercury, 1958. Very Good ... $8.99
Hard swinging big band material from Sweden – featuring the big band of Harry Arnold arranged by Quincy Jones. Quincy had been spending a lot of time in Sweden during the mid 50s – bringing with him a host of great players that would soon become big names on the European scene. Biggest of these is Benny Bailey, who plays some good solos here with a mostly-Swedish group that includes Arne Domnerus, Bengt Hallberb, Ake Persson, and Bengt-Arne Wallin. The style of the work, and its trans-Atlantic jazz orientation, is a direct precursor of later work by the Clarke-Boland Big Band – of whom Bailey was a big part. Titles all swing nicely, and tracks include "Doodlin", "Room 608", "Quincy's Home Again", "Brief Encounter", and "Meet Benny Bailey". LP, Vinyl record album

Georgie AuldDancing In The Land Of HI-FI ... LP
Mercury, 1956. Very Good- ... $4.99
Plenty of dancing here – romping rhythms that are a nice change for Georgie Auld, and which make for a perfect foil for his deeper sounds on the tenor! The record's got a bit of Mercury Records rock in the mix – almost a Red Prysock approach at points, mixed with some of the sweeter swing of Georgie's roots – and other players include Ray Linn and Maynard Ferguson on trumpets, and Frank Rosolino on trombone. Titles include "Blue Lou", "I Get A Kick Out Of You", "Rosetta", "Sweet Lorraine", "Prisoners Song", "Got A Date With An Angel", and "Too Marvelous For Words". LP, Vinyl record album

JD BlackfootUltimate Prophecy ... LP
Mercury, 1970. Very Good+ ... $49.99
A country rock session from JD Blackfoot – but one with a hipper edge than most! Side one features some more mainstream-styled tunes that fit nicely with the down-homier side of the rock spectrum at the end of the 60s – but side two really trips things out nicely, and gets relatively psychedelic in its use of guitar, heavy drums, and vocals. Tracks on this side are nearly all originals by Blackfoot, and have a really dark quality to them – one that's stark, spare, and really stands out from the rest of the record. And heck, if the whole thing sounded as great as side two, we'd almost imagine that the album would have ended up being a much bigger classic than the obscurity it's turned out to be! Titles include "Death's Finale", "Pink Sun", "The Ultimate Prophecy", "Waiting To Be Born", and "Cycles". LP, Vinyl record album

Blues MagoosPsychedelic Lollipop ... LP

Brilliant garage psych from Blues Magoos – a group that's raw and punchy enough to pummel, but pulled off some sweeter numbers and lighter harmonies incredibly well! Walloping drums, excitable vocals and wailing organ grooves – the cracked the charts, but still bring a fully charged proto punk vibe. Totally excellent, the kind of thing we wish were staples of oldies radio, but for whatever reason are left to deeper rock diggers to discover all these years later. Includes "Sometimes I Think About", "Love Seems Doomed", "Worried Life Blues", "Tobacco Road", "One By One" and "I'll Go Crazy". LP, Vinyl record album

Captain BeefheartBluejeans & Moonbeams ... LP
Mercury, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A bit of a notorious record in the good Captain's career, cut in the transition between the original Magic Band and the fine later lineup that was responsible for the excellent LPs on Virgin. The sound is pretty spare, and without the mindbending twists and turns that Beefheart had made his trademark up to this point, and as such, is more of a straight blues and rock record. Van Vliet still sounds great, croaking his idiosyncratic lyrics in his own bad to the bone manner. 9 tracks in all, including "Party Of Special Things", "Same Old Blue3s", "Observatory Crest", "Pompadour Swamp", "Captains Holiday", "Rock N Roll's Evil Doll", "Further Than We've Gone", "Twist Ah Luck" and "Bluejeans & Moonbeams".

Mercury, Mid 50s. Very Good- ... $14.99
An early leader session for Jimmy Cleveland – one that pulls him out of the Lionel Hampton group, and puts him in the company of a number of different all-stars – top level players that Mercury brought together in three different sessions for the album. Players include Lucky Thompson, Cecil Payne, Barry Galbraith, Wade Legge, Paul Chambers, and Jerome Richardson – and it's the quality of the ensemble grooving that really makes the album swing, a lot more than Cleveland's solos on his own. Titles include "Vixen", "Hear Ye Hear Ye", "See Minor", "Bone Brother", "Count 'Em", and "Little Beaver". LP, Vinyl record album

The sound's nicely mellow at times, but still has that tightly arranged west coast modern style that made the group's first record so great. Players include Paul Horn, Bud Shank, and Harry Klee on flutes – plus Jim Hall on guitar, Red Mitchell on bass, and Shelly Manne on drums.

CovenWitchcraft ... LP
Mercury, Early 70s. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $74.99
An insane record – and very very spooky! This is the same group that recorded the hit "One Tin Soldier" – but the record is very different than that single. It's a black mass, ostensibly an anti-witchcraft record, but pretty darn spooky, so much so that you really think that these guys are taking the whole thing seriously. There's bits of rock on some of the record, but the scariest bit is the "Satanic Mass", which runs for 13 minutes, and is a real shocker in a Kenneth Anger kind of way. Oddly produced by the Dunwich Productions team from Chicago! LP, Vinyl record album

Steve DouglasReflections In A Golden Horn ... LP
Mercury, Late 60s. Sealed ... $8.99
Wonderfully groovy work from saxophonist Steve Douglas – a set of instrumental tunes, recorded with lots of trippy late 60s touches! The work's still on the easy side of the instrumental spectrum, but it's got some echoes that remind us of Tom Scott's work over at Impulse – although a bit less funky overall. Douglas plays a variety of reeds, always with a sharp edge that's great – and the arrangements are extremely haunting, and filled with a variety of unexpected elements that really grab us. Arrangements are by Stu Philips, Billy Strange, Perry Botkin, and Dan Morehouse – and there's a lot of great echo in the production, which was handled by Douglas himself. Titles include "Caroline No", "Poet", "Good Vibrations", "Wear Your Love Like Heaven", "Walk On By", "Leyanda", and "Good Only Knows". LP, Vinyl record album

Coke EscovedoCoke ... LP
Mercury, 1975. Very Good+ ... $14.99
An incredible fusion of all the greatness that was going on in the Bay Area scene of the 70s – put together by Coke Escovedo – the brother of Pete and Sheila E, former leader of Azteca, and onetime member of Santana! Yet this set sounds like none of that previous work at all – and instead is great grooving soul, infused both with the sophistication of fusion and some of the Latin elements of Escovedo's roots – all produced to perfection by Patrick Gleeson – who most folks know for his own spacey keyboard work with Bennie Maupin and others! The mix of elements going on is really complex, but comes across with effortless ease – one of those rare fusions that could happen at a bigger label when all the right talents were brought together. The record kind of "out-Fantasys" the best of Fantasy Records in the Bay Area at the time – and makes great use of singers Linda and Calvin Tillery, plus the great Harvey Mason on drums. Titles include wonderful covers of Lamont Dozier's "Why Can't We Be Lovers" and Leon Ware's "If I Ever Lose This Heaven" – plus the tracks "What Are You Under", "No One To Depend On", "Easy Come Easy Go", and "Make It Sweet".

Art Farmer & Benny Golson JazztetHere & Now ... LP
Mercury, Early 60s. Very Good ... $19.99
One of the most magical records ever from this legendary group – a set that swings as hard and soulfully as some of their previous sessions, yet also has a sharper, more modern vibe as well! Of course, this latter aspect is no surprise – once you realize that a young Grachan Moncur is on trombone – adding his hip horn to the wonderful frontline of Benny Golson on tenor and Art Farmer on trumpet and flugelhorn. And given that the rhythm group also features Harold Mabern on piano, you can bet there's a freshness here that can't be beat – a sound and energy that's kept this one at the top of our stack for many many years. Mabern and Moncur contribute two of the best tracks – "Richie's Dilemma" and "Sonny's Back" – and other titles include "Whisper Not", "Tonk", "Rue Prevail", and "Ruby My Dear". LP, Vinyl record album

The Gap Band are definitely Jammin on this sweet little set from the early 80s – hitting that fierce funk mode they do so well, with lots of snapping lines at the bottom of the rhythms! The style is trademark Gap all the way through – a percolated approach to funk that's tight, but never too slick – in a groove that's different than some of their other mainstream counterparts at the time – hard to describe accurately, but almost with a touch of jazz in the mix! Charlie Wilson handles most of the lead vocals, with support from brothers Robert and Ronnie – and Ronnie produced most of the set. Titles include "Where Are We Going", "Shake A Leg", "Jam The Motha", "Someday", "You're Something Special", "I'm Ready", "You're My Everything", "Smile", and "Jammin In America".

Mid 50s magic from vibist Terry Gibbs – one of his hard to find Mercury sets, a big-ish band date that has Gibbs at the helm of a smallish orchestra with lots of nice horn work to support his solos in the lead! The style's never too overbearing to drown out Terry's rich chromatic tones – and there's a nicely modern style to the way the set's put together – with trumpets from Don Elliott and Nick Travis, trombone from Bob Brookmeyer and Urbie Green, alto from Hal McKusick, and tenor by Al Cohn and Frank Socolow. Tunes all glide nicely, with a great burst of colors on each number – and titles include "Funky Serenade", "Gubi", "Just Plain Meyer", "Let's Wail", "Heads Or Tails", "Slittin Sam", "Night Cap", and "Julie's Bugle".

Mid 50s magic from vibist Terry Gibbs – a set that has Gibbs working through some material from Duke Ellington – but often with instrumentation that's quite unusual! The combo's a quartet – with Gibbs himself on vibes, marimba, and xylophone – alongside Pete Jolly on accordion, Leroy Vinnegar on bass, and Gary Frommer on drums – all grooving in some nicely remade versions of Ellington standards. The mix of vibes and accordion is quite striking, and really provides a fresh take on numbers that include "Caravan", "Rockin' In Rhythm", "I Let A Song Go Out Of My Heart", "Sophisticated Lady", and "Do Nothin' Till You Hear From Me".

One of the weird LPs that French Horn player John Graas made in the 50's, featuring that cumbersome instrument in a set of surprisingly light and loose jazz tracks. Graas' playing on the French Horn is a bit like Gerry Mulligan's on the baritone – that is, he takes these turns and twists that surprise you, given the nature of the horn. He's joined here by Art Pepper, Conte Candoli, Bob Cooper, and Paul Moer, and the set's a nice batch of West Coast chamber type stuff.

A great lost date from the wonderful Gigi Gryce – a set that features the altoist in an sextet, but often swinging with a looser vibe than on some of his better-known albums from the 50s! There's a mix of soulful and modern here that's not unlike the Art Farmer/Benny Golson Jazztet – both players of Gryce's same postwar generation, and coincidentally recording for Mercury at the same time. Although the groove here is definitely different – less emphasis on the bottom, and more on the top – not just Gryce's wonderfully raspy alto, but also the trumpet of Richard Williams too. All other players are great as well – and Eddie Costa brings in some sweet vibes – in a lineup that also features Richard Wyands on piano, and either Reggie Workman or George Duvivier on bass, and either Walter Perkins or Bob Thomas on drums. Tracks include "Reminiscing", "Gee Blues Gee", "Blue Light", and "Night In Tunisia". LP, Vinyl record album

A great 50s session from guitarist Bill Harris – known for his work in The Clovers, but a great jazz player as well! The sound here is really unique – very different than even his other albums of the time – in that Bill is playing solo acoustic guitar, in a style that's almost like that of Luiz Bonfa in the early days – light, airy, and very rhythmic – dancing out with a bit of swing, but also some tendencies we might be tempted to call early bossa! The whole thing's quite different than what you might expect for a player with R&B roots – and titles include "Daahoud", "Ethyl", "Wind Song", "Jordu", "Concerto For Jazz", and "Poinciana".

Although the cover of this one makes it look like a saucy European film – as does the tag line, which reads "The Motion Picture for people over 18!" – most of the record's in kind of a dreamy period mode, with sweeping orchestrations that are a bit snoozy. Hard to believe, with titles like "17", "Erotic Imaginings In The Garden", "Reflections In The House", "At Home Again", and "First Experience". LP, Vinyl record album

Elton JohnGoodbye Yellow Brick Road (40th Anniversary remastered edition) (180 gram pressing with download) ... LP
Mercury, 1973. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99 39.98
The crowning achievement of a young Elton John – and the record that took an already-great run of earlier records, and pushed it even further with a new depth of songwriting and imagination! The double-length set isn't exactly a concept album – at least not one with a unified narrative – but it works beautifully as a set of little pictures of the world seen through the eyes of Elton and Bernie Taupin – both at the height of their powers, and able to balance catchy commercial tunes with some grittier undercurrents. The set's filled with classics – and titles include "Candle In The Wind", "Funeral For A Friend/Love Lies Bleeding", "Bennie & The Jets", "Social Disease", "Saturday Night's Alright For Fighting", "Harmony", "Jamaica Jerk-Off", and "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road".

A very groovy set of short jazzy numbers from Quincy – a consummate expression of all the work he'd forged in the 60s on soundtracks and other jazz sides for Mercury! The album features Quincy working through a lot of soul numbers – jamming on them instrumentally with players that include Jerome Richardson, Bobby Bryant, Plas Johnson, Ray Charles, Carol Kaye, and Ben Tucker – plus a nice brace of percussion from Ray Bryant and Gary Coleman. Titles include "Boss Bird", "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag", "I Got You (I Feel Good)", "Mohair Sam", and "Baby Cakes". LP, Vinyl record album

New LA BoppersLA Boppers ... LP
Mercury, 1980. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Sublime work from this jazzy harmony combo – a really unique group who took older vocal modes and fused them onto tight modern soul grooves! This set may well be the best-ever from the group – a perfectly produced album done with Augie Johnson of At Home Productions – with a warmly sparkling vibe that's right up there with the best At Home work for Creative Source or Side Effect – both groups who'd be a good comparison to this one! There's a few upbeat funk numbers that are pretty sweet, but the best cuts are usually the laidback, mellower ones – which really have LA Boppers hitting their stride. Titles include the killer cut "Watching Life" – a smooth mellow groover, and one of their best tracks – plus "Saturday", "Funk It Out", "Life Is What You Make It", "You Did It Good", "Is This The Best", and "Are We Wrong".

New Joe LocoCalypso Dance ... LP
Mercury, Mid 50s. Very Good+ ... $7.99
A great set of Latin grooves – and despite the "calypso" in the title, this is pretty much a straight Latin album from Joe Loco, and it ranks as one of his best from the 50s. The grooves are nice and straight ahead, with searing percussion, and nice heavy piano from Joe. Who knows why they called it calypso? Maybe they were trying to cash in on the calypso craze of the 50s? Whatever the case, though, the album's a nice one, and includes great tracks like "Bongo Bob", "Tappin Joe", "Machicha", and "Pick Your Poison". LP, Vinyl record album

The new talents make for a fresh change – and the album also brings in a few US tracks too, with work by Glenn Osser and Lincoln Mayorga – on titles that include "Symphony", "The Skye Boat Song", "A Wonderful Day Like Today", "Clopin Clopant", "This Is Love", and "I'll Close My Eyes".

Ohio PlayersSkin Tight ... LP
Mercury, 1974. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $9.99
Great work from the Ohio Players – and proof that moving to a big label could be a good thing for a funky group! This was the band's first album for Mercury – and although one might have the temptation to say that the label cut down the radical funk sound of the trippy Westbound years, the move also taught the band to sharpen up their act, and get out of the repetitive sloppy groove into which they'd been lapsing during the past few years. The record's a lot smoother than earlier work – with a polished funky sound that would soon push the band right up there with Earth Wind & Fire at the top of the soul charts. And although there's familiar funky numbers like "Skin Tight", "Jive Turkey", and "Streakin Cheek To Cheek" – the best moment on the entire album is the wonderful spacey soul number "Heaven Must be Like This", a seven minute mellow groover that's got a sophisticated jazzy soul style, with voices and piano soaring into the heavens, in a way that always still sends chills down our spine! That cut shows the band's tremendous growth – and it's one of their best-ever! LP, Vinyl record album

One of David's smooth soul albums for Mercury, with jazzy production by Wayne Henderson that's in line with the best work he was doing at the time. David's got a strange voice that's got the depth of a baritone, but the sweetness of a tenor. It's a little tough to get used to at first, but the arrangements are sparkling, and match his style very well.

The group features Oscar with frequent partner Ray Brown on bass – plus drums from Alvin Stoller and guitar from Barney Kessel – the latter of whom plays in a way that's different than the guitar/piano pairing Peterson got with Herb Ellis. The set features two long tracks – both nice and open, with a loose style that really gets Oscar going – and titles include "The Astaire Blues" and "Stompin At The Savoy". LP, Vinyl record album

New Louie RamirezIn The Heart of Spanish Harlem ... LP
Mercury, Mid 60s. Sealed ... $69.99
One of THE killers of the Latin soul years – and a record that sometimes doesn't always get its due because it was issued on Mercury, not one of the New York indies! But don't let that association fool you, because this record's every bit as hard – if not harder than – any of the late 60s greats on Tico, Fania, or Cotique! Louie Ramirez is really at the top of his game here – leading a tightly smoking ensemble that's extremely heavy on percussion – timbales and congas really pushing hard on all numbers, often topped by English language vocals that are super-hip and very catchy! The whole record's got a really badass feel that easily makes it one of the best examples of Latin Soul you'll ever find – and it's filled with great tracks that include "Louie's Mozambique", "Love It Up", "Lucy's Spanish Harlem", "I Hear A Bembe", "Coffe & Bread", "The Bigshot", "Thinking Of You", and "The Boogie Man".

The lineup is filled with great players – including Phil Woods, Harry Edison, Al Cohn, and Benny Golson – and in a way, the record almost grooves with some of the same energy that Quincy Jones was bringing to his big band records of the time – save for a bit more emphasis on the drums!

With the help of a large group of west coast players – including Don Fagerquist, Larry Bunker, Herbie Harper, Frank Rosolini, Jack Costanzo, and Shelly Manne – Pete really makes things swing nicely, and brings in as much dynamic energy from the horns as he gets from the percussion!

The one and only LP released by this funky soul duo from Chicago! Simtec & Wylie were formed in the shape of Sam & Dave, Bob & Earl, Mel & Tim, and other famous 60s male duos – but they had a madder approach that was the fruit of many years of making funky 45's, and (given Simtec's solo work) probably quite a bit of controlled substances! Backings on the set are by the T-Boxes band – named after a weird guitar single on Simtec's own label – and the set's issued here on Gene Chandler's Mister Chand subsidiary of Mercury, designed as a showcase for new Chicago talents. Includes the funky cuts "Bootleggin", "Gotta Get Over the Hump", and "Put Up or Shut Up". LP, Vinyl record album
