Jerry ButlerBest Of Jerry Butler (Mercury) ... LP
Mercury, 1970. Very Good+ ... $1.99
Seminal work by one of our favorite soul singers of all time! Jerry first came to fame with The Impressions and on his own in the early 60s – singing dark moody easy tunes that well earned him the nickname of "Iceman". In the late 60s, though, he moved onto Mercury where he broke through even bigger with some excellent early production by Gamble & Huff, which took Jerry to a whole new level, and which gave his work a swinging soul groove that worked great with his vocals. This set compiles some of the best moments of the Mercury years – including "Never Give You Up", "Lost", "Moody Woman", "Mr Dream Merchant", "Hey Western Union Man", and "Only The Strong Survive".

New GenesisIn the Beginning (Mercury) ... LP
Mercury, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Don't mix these guys up with the bigger-name Genesis – because this combo doesn't feature Phil Collins or Peter Gabriel – and instead is an American group from the late 60s that works in a sweetly melodic approach to psychedelia! Some tunes are heavy on the fuzz, with guitars right out front – but others have a slightly more baroque style that befits the group's image on the cover – little bits of woodwind and cello that sweeten the tunes nicely. But it's really the heavier guitars that make the record great – played sharply, and with great focus – sounding especially nice alongside some of the sweeter female vocals. Titles include a roaring 16 minute track titled "World Without You", plus shorter numbers like "Angeline", "Ten Second Song", and a version of Leonard Cohen's "Suzanne". CD features the bonus track "The Long Road". LP, Vinyl record album

New Gene AmmonsLight, Bluesy, & Moody ... LP
Wing/Mercury, Late 40s/Late 50s. Very Good ... $3.99
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

Bar-KaysFlying High On Your Love ... LP
Mercury, 1977. Very Good ... $5.99
A great step forward for The Bar-Kays – an album that actually has them taking on a few mellower moments, amidst the heavy funk you might expect – yet all without softening their groove at all! The album's very much in the best spirit of the group's Mercury debut – still recorded in Memphis, with production that's tight, but never uptight – enough to firmly put the group at the top of the funk superstar scene of the mid 70s, yet never sell out the rich Memphis groove that first got them going! Titles include "You Can't Run Away", "Let's Have Some Fun", "Can't Keep My Hands Off You", "Whatever It Is", and "Shut the Funk Up". LP, Vinyl record album

Dude! This is the kind of crossover rock/R&B set that the Fillmore scene of the 60s flourished on. Chuck Berry plays live with the band of Steve Miller, which was then a raw bluesy combo, trying their hardest to sound Chicago electric, despite their roots in the Bay Area. Miller sings a bit with Berry, and titles include "Feelin It", "Wee Baby Blues", "Hoochie Coochie Man", and "Driftin Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

Black SheepWolf In Sheep's Clothing (2LP pressing) ... LP
Mercury/Get On Down, 1991. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $22.99
A Native Tongues classic from 1991 – one that sounded great way back when, and has held up beautifully over the years – and rightly considered amongst the greatest hip hop albums ever! Wolf In Sheep's Clothing is playful rap at it's best, with funky and and funny cuts galore – but the title is apt, as the wit is pretty sharply barbed – especially when they're skewering hardcore and gangsta cliches. It's as brilliant as ever. Includes the massive "Flavor Of The Month", "Similak Child", "Pass The 40", "To Whom It May Concern", "Butt In The Meantime", "Strobelite Honey", "Are You Mad?", "Blunted", "For Doz That Slept" and more.

JD BlackfootUltimate Prophecy ... LP
Mercury, 1970. Very Good+ ... $36.99
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

Jerry ButlerJerry Butler Sings Assorted Sounds – With The Aid Of Assorted Friends & Relatives ... LP
Mercury, 1971. Sealed ... $11.99
One of the albums in which Jerry Butler showcases the talents of a new generation of young Chicago soul talents – including Terry Callier, Donny Hathaway, Chuck Jackson (from The Independents, not the New York soul star), and his brother Billy Butler. Billy Butler had already scored big with his own singles on Okeh in the 60s, but Terry, Donny, and Chuck were still emerging soul talents at this time – and it was pretty darn nice of Jerry to give them exposure on a record like this. Proof that The Iceman always was much more than just the simple singer of pop hits that he always gets tagged for – as it was pretty magnanimous of him to share the wealth of his big contract with Mercury, not to mention pretty smart to infuse his career with some good young songwriting talent. The whole record's got a good groovy soul sound, and includes the cuts "How Did We Lose It", "If It's Real What I Feel", "What Is It", and "Do You Finally Need a Friend". LP, Vinyl record album
(Sealed original pressing.)

Jerry ButlerPower Of Love ... LP
Mercury, 1973. Very Good ... $2.99
An easy album to overlook, but not without some nice moments! Johnny Bristol produced the record, and he gives it a nice sweet 70s soul groove, similar to what he was using in his own work from the time. And typical of Jerry's albums from the early 70s, there's lots of nice original material, including stuff by Terry Callier, Johnny Bristol, Billy Butler, and Jerry himself. Includes "What Do You Do On A Sunday Afternoon?", one of our secret faves, plus "Memories Don't Leave Like People Do", "Whatever Goes Around", "Whatever's Fair", and "Too Many Danger Signs".

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".

New Eddie Chamblee & FriendDoodlin' ... LP
Mercury, Late 50s. Very Good- ... $7.99
Although the cover of the record includes a picture of Eddie's wife, Dinah Washington, and the "Friend" in the title would seem to imply that she's on the album, the set's really just a bunch of hard jazz cuts that showcase Eddie's screaming tenor sax, and which don't include Dinah's vocals. Not that that's a problem, though, because the record's a great one, and it's a good peek at player who was one of the biggest in Chicago during the 50's, and who had a loud hard R&B sound, in a mode that was similar to other Chicago players, such as Gene Ammons and Red Prysock. The record's got a number of originals by Chamblee, plus a few tracks written by Julian Priester and Dinah Washington (but did she really write them?). Titles include "Back Street", "Strollin Sax", "Village Square", and "Swing A Little Taste". LP, Vinyl record album

Buddy takes his Swinging Shepherds crew to the movies on this one – serving up a set of tunes from 40s and 50s films that all come off perfectly with the group's multi-flute approach! 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. Titles include "The Bad & The Beautiful", "The Shrike", "Invitation", "Ruby", "Swinging On A Star", and "Intermezzo" LP, Vinyl record album

Con Funk ShunTouch ... LP
Mercury, 1980. Very Good ... $6.99
A killer from Con Funk Shun – one of the few mainstream funk groups who actually managed to sound better and better with each new record – and on this set, they really seem to come into their own! The group's sound was always suited better to a smoother groove than a rougher one – and for the set, their tight brand of funk is topped off by vocals that seem even better crafted than before – harmonizing surprisingly well at the funkiest moments, then stepping back to let Michael Cooper take the lead on the ballads. There's also some great moogy keyboard bits that keep things interesting, but which never go over the top in an electro way – and titles include "Too Tight", "Lady's Wild", "Give Your Love To Me", "Kidnapped", "Welcome Back To Love", "Touch", and "Play Widit".

Buddy DeFranco's always pretty darn nice, but he really sounds great on this one – his clarinet solo style mixing with the accordion sounds of Tommy Gumina, all set to some hip 60s arrangements that mix in a bit of bossa with straighter jazz – occasionally augmented by guitar, organ, and vibes. Includes a great version of "Girl From Ipanema", plus "Never On Friday", "Lunar Lunacy", "I Love You", and "It Could Happen To You". LP, Vinyl record album

Mercury, 1977. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Brilliant 70s work by The Dells – and an album that has the group reinventing themselves wonderfully, by moving over to Philly and recording with Norman Harris! As he did with so many other artists at the time, Harris took the group firmly into the clubs with a soaring Sigma sort of groove – one that supports the group with backings from players that include key Philly talents like Bobby Eli, Ron Kersey, Larry Washington, and Earl Young – but which also keeps plenty of space for the sublime harmonies that always made The Dells so great! Titles include "Teaser", "Our Love", "Could It Be", "Rich Man Poor Man", "Waiting For You", "Get On Down", and "Betcha Never Been Loved". LP, Vinyl record album

Along with Showbiz and AG's first EP, and Lord Finesse's first couple releases, this record helped introduce the world to one of the most solid crews in hip hop, DITC – who reigned supreme for years, making top quality records one after another. The classic and oft-imitated Diamond beats laid the blueprint for so much hip hop to follow – and the titles include "Sally Got A One Track Mind," "Best Kept Secret," "I'm Outta Here," "Check One, Two", "Freestyle (Yo That's The Sh..)" and more!

Coke EscovedoCoke ... LP
Mercury, 1975. Good+ ... $6.99
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".

Benny GolsonTurning Point ... LP
Mercury, 1963. Very Good+ ... $9.99
An incredible, and oft-overlooked album from the great Benny Golson – and one of the few early albums that really point the way to his huge run of work for decades to come! The style here is a bit looser, and more open than some of Golson's previous albums – less of a focus on arrangements, and more on the spontaneous interplay between his tenor and the crack rhythm section – which features Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Jimmy Cobb on drums – a dream lineup who really make the record sparkle. But the real star of the show is Golson – who's hitting this raspy, soulful tone he never had before – much freer of soul jazz formalities, and with a modern edge that's wonderful – as you'll hear on titles that include "Alone Together", "Turning Point", "Stella By Starlight", and "Dear Kathy".

Nearly all the tunes are uptempo, and the feel of the record is very much in the same vein as Henry Mancini's Cop Show Themes album – although perhaps with a bit less electronics.

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".

Heaven & EarthHeaven & Earth ... LP
Mercury, 1978. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Excellent work from this smooth Chicago vocal group! The album may well be the best the group ever recorded – and it features some stellar ballad work produced with a nice spacey tone, almost in a Rose Royce mellow mode – by Jerry Butler's Fountain Productions team and by Clarence Johnson, who brought the group up from the beginning! The real strength of the album, though, is the group's vocals – wonderfully harmonious, but with a rougher edge and a deeper soul than many other 70s groups of the same type. The album includes the massive semi-hit "Guess Who's Back In Town" – plus other good ballads like "How Do You Think You're Gonna Find Love", "Let's Work It Out", and "Distant Melody". The album also features some uptempo numbers – and other tracks include "Run & Tell That", "Dance A Thon", and "No Limit". LP, Vinyl record album

A great 80s EmArcy two-fer from Q's Mercury years! The Birth Of A Band is a very swingin', very groovy early album from Quincy – one that's clearly in the big band mode, but handled with soulful touches that really set it apart from the genre! The band is a great one all the way through – and the album features solos by Zoot Sims, Jerome Richardson, Phil Woods, Clark Terry, and Harry Edison. Tracks are very often in a soul jazz mode – arranged by Quincy and Melba Liston – and featuring versions of some of the best jazz compositions of the time. Titles include "Moanin", "I Remember Clifford", "Along Came Betty", and "Whisper Not". Quincy's world is great and wide indeed – and even at this early point in his career, he was displaying a wonderful talent for bringing in bits from all sources! The album's essentially a straight jazz set, but it's got some great exotic touches that are in keeping with the "world" theme and the globe-trotting titles on the set. The group's excellent too – with players that include Sahib Shihab, Budd Johnson, Les Spann, Lee Morgan, and Phil Woods – all working through hip arrangements by Al Cohn, Bill Potts, and Ernie Wilkins. Titles include "Ghana", "Air Mail Special", "Chant Of The Weed", "Eesom", and "I Never Has Seen Snow". Plus, this set adds "Midnight Sun Will Never Set" from the Birth Of sessions! LP, Vinyl record album

New Quincy JonesGolden Boy ... LP
Mercury, 1964. Very Good ... $4.99
A sweet bridge between Quincy's big band recordings and his groovier soundtrack work of the mid 60s – as the record combines straight jazzy grooving with some of the cooler elements of Quincy's soundtrack scores, like stepping strings, wordless voices, and a breathy mellow groove that floats across the disc in a wonderful way! Aiding Quincy in the album are a host of top-line jazz players – including Eddie Lockjaw Davis, Jerome Richardson, and Phil Woods on saxes – plus Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Al Grey on trombone, and Jim Hall on guitar! Although titled after the show Golden Boy, only a few cuts here are from that musical – and the rest include Quincy Jones originals and some cool covers, given the Q twist. Titles include "Seaweed", "The Witching Hour", "Hard Day's Night", "The Sidewinder", and "Theme From Golden Boy", done in 2 versions, both great! LP, Vinyl record album

Mercury, 1972. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $6.99
Despite the fact that this album's got an African-sounding name, and features a painting of Quincy in tribal garb, the album's actually a compilation of his 60's stuff for Mercury – which was not very Afro-funky, but which is still pretty darn groovy! The record's got his stunning cut "Soul Bossa Nova" (as used in Austin Powers!), plus lots of other groovy groovy stuff like "Jive Samba", "Lalo's Bossa Nova", "Rack 'em Up", "Harlem Drive", and "Gravy Waltz". Very nice stuff, and a great batch of material you can't find easily. LP, Vinyl record album

A classic bit of tripped-out soul from Buddy Miles – put together with a lot of nice psychedelic production, and an overall sound that stays nice and deep on the bottom end of things – and lets Buddy rock out heavily on rootsy vocals. There's no real standout funky numbers, but the overall sound of the album is very much inspired by the sound of funk – as well as some of the funk/rock crossovers of the time – and titles include "Joe Tex", "Place Over There", "The Segment", "Don't Keep Me Wondering", "Sudden Stop", and "That's The Way Life Is".

Mercury, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
"I need a fix – and a kiiiiiiiiiissssssss!" What can we say? Johnny Thunders, David Johansen and the boys reinvented the wheel with the of wildly hedonist glam skronk spun on this still incredible debut record. Both records they made for Mercury are incredible, but this is the bonafide masterpiece. It's a classic purely on a primal rock 'n' roll level, but it's also one of rock's greatest examples of style equaling substance! The Dolls brought glammer to the gutter and vice versa, and this is no doubt their greatest moment! Includes "Personality Crisis", "Looking For A Kiss", "Trash", "Frankenstein", "Pills", "Bad Girl", "Private World" and "Jet Boy". Produced by Todd Rundgren and engineered by Jack Douglas – the former a legend in his own right, the latter whose name appears on so many great records that range from other proto-punk and punk-era classics (Patti Smith Group, The Runaways) to the trashier side of the mainstream (prime early Cheap Trick, Aerosmith and Alice Cooper).

Mercury, 1974. Near Mint- ... $1.99
Bright, punchy 70s pop from Paper Lace! Paper Lace is a textbook example of a group that too few remember, despite their best remembered song(s) have full scale penetrated the minds of anyone who has ever turned on a radio. They hit pay dirt with "Billy, Don't Be A Hero" and "The Night Chicago Died", but most of the rest of the tunes on these records sink their hooks in and you won't be able to shake them. Jangly guitars, playful vocal arrangements and manicured studio tricks that make this stuff as addictive as heroin. Paper Lace includes "Billy Don't Be A Hero", "The Night Chicago Died", "Cheek To Cheek", "Love You're A Long Time Coming", "Dreams Are Ten A Penny" and more, plus 7 bonus tracks.

Pete RugoloMusic For Hi Fi Bugs ... LP
Mercury, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $4.99
The title makes this one sound like a batch of bachelor pad tunes, but the album itself is easily one of Pete Rugolo's best of the 50s – a really tremendous big band outing that's filled with all-star players – all in a groove that breaks Pete very firmly past his Kenton heritage! The tracks are bold and strong voiced – often a bit longer than usual, which allows for even more focus on the album's solos from players who include Larry Bunker, Pete Candoli, Ronny Lang, Russ Freeman, and Dave Pell. There's a wonderful quality to the record – one in which all elements gell together perfectly, but in a way that still makes you aware of the presence of each player in the larger group – and titles include "Fawncy Meeting You Here", "For Hi Fi Bugs", "These Foolish Things", "Dream Of You", "Snowfall", and "Later Team".

The tracks have a warm wash of sound from the brass section, and soaring solos by the west coast jazzmen.

Bobby Scott108 Pounds Of Heartache ... LP
Mercury, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Cool early work from Bobby Scott – an overlooked album for Mercury, and one that's almost much more soul than some of his jazzier work! Bobby sings throughout – partially in that Mose Allison mode of other records, but often with an upbeat, swinging style that's backed by a trio of female soul singers and underscored with electric bass – creating a rocking rhythm that's really great, and very much in the best Mercury production style of the early 60s. Scott handled all arrangements, and penned a few of the songs on the record – and although the album's a blue-eyed soul effort, it's somewhat in the territory of Gene McDaniels' early material for Liberty. Titles include "She's Mine", "108 Pounds Of Heartache", "All I Need Is You", "It's Real", "Looking Through A Tear", and "Pastures Of Plenty". LP, Vinyl record album

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.
