Jerry ButlerBest Of Jerry Butler (Mercury) ... LP
Mercury, 1970. Very Good+ ... $3.99
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 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".

Cannonball AdderleyCannonball Adderley Quintet In Chicago ... LP
Mercury, 1959. Very Good ... $29.99
A great session from 1959 – one that features John Coltrane playing with the Adderley group, recorded in Chicago when they were stopping through the city with Miles Davis' combo at the time! In fact, since the rhythm section includes Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers, and Jimmy Cobb – and since Coltrane's sitting in with Cannon – the album's essentially a Kind Of Blue-era Miles album, recorded without Miles on trumpet, and grooving in a slightly more soul-based Adderley mode. Given the presence of Coltrane, there's a bit less of the gutbuckety soul jazz that Cannon was cutting in his own Quintet – but that's more than ok with us, as the Coltrane solos more than make up for that difference! The set's got 2 great originals by Coltrane – "The Sleeper" and "Grand Central" – plus the cuts "Wabash" and "Limehouse Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

Cannonball AdderleyCannonball Enroute ... LP
Mercury, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Cannonball Adderley's enroute to a great jazz legacy here – stepping out in a groove that begins to show some of the soul jazz modes he was forging at the end of the 50s – a great change from the straighter bop styles of his early years! The lineup here is a wonderful early expression of the familiar Adderley groove – with brother Nat Adderley on cornet, Junior Mance on piano, Sam Jones on bass, and Jimmy Cobb on drums – with Mance and Jones bringing an especially nice bottom end to the record – one that gets things moving in a very soulful way! Titles include "Porky", "Hoppin John", "That Funky Train", "I'll Remember April", and "18th Century Ballroom". LP, Vinyl record album

New Cannonball AdderleyCannonball's Sharpshooters ... LP
Mercury, 1958. Very Good+ ... $19.99
A set that's right on target, right from the start – and one that has the young Cannonball Adderley really coming into his groove! The set's a lot more soul jazz-oriented than some of Cannon's records from a few years before – played by a rock-solid group that includes brother Nat Adderley on cornet, Junior Mance on piano, Sam Jones on bass, and Jimmy Cobb on drums – hitting a groove that's got plenty of nascent elements of that Cannonball sound that would virtually take over jazz in the 60s! Yet there's also a nicely different vibe going on here too – a bit less structure, and a looser approach to the mode – spun out with some modern moments too, on titles that include "Straight No Chaser", "Jubilation", "Our Delight", "Fuller Bop Man", and "Stay On It".

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

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

Harry ArnoldHarry Arnold + Big Band + Quincy Jones = Jazz! ... LP
Mercury, 1958. Very Good ... $6.99
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

New Bar-KaysInjoy ... LP
Mercury, 1979. Very Good- ... $4.99
Later Bar-Kays at their best – still plenty funky, but also working in a smoothly soulful style that became the group's trademark sound at Mercury! The album's got a real bass-heavy appeal from the start – working in a mode that shares a lot with Cameo, The Gap Band, and some of the other mainstream funk acts at the time – yet which still occasionally shows the group's roots in the rougher Memphis scene. There's actually some great ballads on the album alongside the funk – tunes that sweeten the set nicely, and provide a good counterpoint to the more uptempo numbers. Titles include "Girl I'm On Your Side", "More & More", "Running In & Out Of My Life", "You've Been", and "Up In Here". LP, Vinyl record album

New 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+ ... $43.99
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

New Jerry ButlerIce Man Cometh ... LP
Mercury, 1968. Sealed ... $24.99
Amazing soul from one of the greats of the 60s! This album was one of the first that Jerry cut for Mercury – where he'd begun working with the young team of Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff to completely rework the earlier sound he'd forged at Vee Jay Records. The album's still got Jerry singing in his wonderfully rich deep voice – hence the "iceman" in the title – but the songs have a bit more of a groove to them, with a soaring soul style that really lifts Jerry up, and pushes him onto a whole new generation of soul fans. The best proof of this are the hits "Hey Western Union Man" and "Never Give You Up" – but the whole album's great, and like most of Jerry's LPs, it's got many wonderful tunes hiding underneath the hits. Titles include "How Can I Get In Touch With You", "Can't Forget About You Baby", "Are You Happy", and "Go Away Find Yourself" – as well as other hits like "Lost" and "Only The Strong Survive". LP, Vinyl record album

A great record, and one that's more of a deeper soul effort than some of his other Mercury sessions! Jerry's back recording in Chicago, and the album has arrangements by Arthur Wright, and production by Cal Carter for the Fountain Productions imprint that would grace Jerry and Billy Butler's efforts over the next few years. The LP includes Jerry's fantastic hit "Never Give You Up", plus deep soul versions of a lot of earlier soul classics by Sam Cooke, Jesse Belvin, and Otis Redding – like "Respect", "Ain't That Good News", "Goodnight My Love", "Guess Who", "These Arms Of Mine", and "I've Been Loving You Too Long". Also features "Yes, My Goodness, Yes" – a nice tune that Jerry wrote with Bobby Womack! A nice groovy update of some legendary soul compositions, and a real treat from Jerry! LP, Vinyl record album

Mercury, 1972. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $4.99
Perhaps the greatest record Jerry Butler made in the 70s, and a very tight bit of baroque Chicago soul with arrangements and production by Samuel F. Brown III. The tracks are a good mix of originals and covers, and they all show Jerry going way past his Gamble & Huff/Mercury years – into the sophisticated mix of soul, jazz, and studio imagination that was going down on the Chicago scene of the late 60s and early 70s. A few cuts feature duets with Brenda Lee Eager, but the best numbers are the solo ones, like "A Prayer", "That The Way it Was", "If I Could Remember", and "I Need You". LP, Vinyl record album

Captain BeefheartBluejeans & Moonbeams ... LP
Mercury, 1974. Very Good+ ... $14.99
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 Blues", "Observatory Crest", "Pompadour Swamp", "Captains Holiday", "Rock N Roll's Evil Doll", "Further Than We've Gone", "Twist Ah Luck" and "Bluejeans & Moonbeams".

The sweetly grooving first album from Central Line – one of the few British soul groups to really kick it in the early 80s scene – with a catchy dancefloor sound that both encapsulates the era and lays down a killer groove for the ages! The album is a blend of bass riffing, keyboards, group vocals and nice electro touches – always done with a truly soulful approach as a perfect counter balance to the breezy electronics! Upbeat and fresh early 80s modern soul that holds up better than most huge hits of the time! Titles include the killer opener "Walking Into Sunshine", plus "Don't Tell Me", "Shake It Up", "Breaking Point", and "I Need Your Love". LP, Vinyl record album

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.

Early work from Con Funk Shun – different than their later, better known hits! The group sure knew how to slap that bass, even back on this first album for Mercury – but then again, they – along with other big Mercury groups like The Ohio Players – were pioneering the bass-heavy sound that would influence countless bands over the next decade in soul. This first album's actually one of the group's best, with some nice rough edges that we like even more than the smoother sound of later albums. And oddly, some of our favorite cuts are the mellower ones – like the smooth jazzy instrumental "Foley Park", which has a nice moogy solo in the middle. Other good mellow cuts include "Another World", which almost has a "Summer Madness" quality to it, plus "Forever Just Ain't Long Enough" and "Never Be The Same". LP, Vinyl record album

Mercury, Late 60s. Sealed ... $6.99
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.

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

Terry GibbsSwingin With Terry Gibbs ... LP
Mercury, Mid 50s. Near Mint- ... $6.99
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".

Terry GibbsTerry Gibbs Plays The Duke ... LP
Mercury, 1957. Sealed ... $3.99
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".

Benny GolsonTurning Point ... LP
Mercury, 1963. Very Good+ ... $11.99
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".

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. Tracks include "Van Nuys Indeed", "Land of Broken Toys", "Blocksounds", 'Development", "Swing Nicely" and "Rogeresque". LP, Vinyl record album

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. Titles include "Theme From SWAT", "Harry O", "Streets Of San Francisco", "Cannon", "Rockford Files", "Kojak", "McCloud", "Police Woman", and "Six-Million Dollar Man". LP, Vinyl record album

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

New Heaven & EarthHeaven & Earth ... LP
Mercury, 1978. Good+ ... $3.99
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

New Quincy JonesBig Band Bossa Nova ... LP
Mercury, Mid 60s. Good+ ... $6.99
Perhaps THE greatest Quincy Jones album of the 60s – a hard-swinging batch of big band bossa tunes – and one of the greatest American takes on the bossa sound ever! Quincy really brings a lot of soul to the set – syncopating the bottom end of the tunes to really bring out the rhythms, and working with a jazzy flourish of horns that creates all these quick and clever little turns in the tunes! The sound's been heard most famously on the incredible track "Soul Bossa Nova" – an original by Quincy for the set, which has gone onto much greater fame through its use in the film Austin Powers, and a bazillion TV commercials! But the whole album's great too – and other tracks include "Serenata", "Lalo Bossa Nova", "Boogie Bossa Nova", and "Chega De Saudade". LP, Vinyl record album

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".

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?

Excellent work from Gloria Lynne – and a record that has her reinventing her sound beautifully at the end of the 60s! Production on the set is by Jerry Butler and Jerry Peters, and Peters also handles the arrangements in a really great style – one that brings in a gentle groove on the bottom, and creates a sly funky undercurrent on a number of tunes. Gloria herself is singing in a style that's even deeper than before – one that's clearly picking up from the changes at Atlantic and Stax, and which allows her own excellent vocals to find a whole new audience at the time. Titles include the excellent original "Kickin Life", plus "A Very Gentle Sound", "The Reason Why", "More Love", "Just Let Me Be Me", "I Got Your Love", and "The Summer Knows". LP, Vinyl record album

Tracks here are a bit longer and more jamming than work by either of those two artists – with the kind of heavy guitar and horns that played heavily to the Fillmore crowd – but the overall sound of the record is a fair bit more soulful and even funkier than some other Miles' efforts from the earlier years too, with plenty of his tight drums in the mix! Titles include a great 12 minute reading of the title track "We Got To Live Together" – plus "Take It Off Him & Put It On Me", "Runaway Child", "Walking Down The Highway", and "Easy Greasy".

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!

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).

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
