Beastie BoysCheck Your Head ... LP
Grand Royal, 1992. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $39.99
If Paul's Boutique was the Beasties' psychedelic hip hop Sgt Peppers, then Check Your Head is their White Album – a raw, stylistically sprawling, yet always connected batch of live instrumentation – backing rhymes that range from stream of consciousness to expertly written. Check Your Head is also their first outing without the guidance of outside producers, though the trio did bring in a host of regular collaborators like Money Mark and Mario Caldato Jr, who work as well with the Boys as ever. It's stunning how far The Beastie Boys grew creatively over their first few albums, and this point is pretty close to perfection! Titles include "Jimmy James", "Pass The Mic", "Gratitude", "Finger Lickin' Good", "So Whatcha Want", "Time For Livin'", "Something's Got To Give", "Groove Holmes" and "Professor Booty". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has a cutout hole.)

ChampaignWoman In Flames ... LP
Columbia, 1984. Sealed ... $2.99
Sweet, tight, and right on the money – a stellar bit of soul from Champaign – one of those great 80s groups who never seemed to get their due, but managed to make some really wonderful music right from the start! The album's got a slightly heavier production tip than before – arrangements from James Newton Howard that link Champaign a bit more to the sound of their mid 80s contemporaries – especially some of the other groups on Columbia. Yet there's also a healthy core to the album that comes from the group's own contributions – their continued strong sense of songwriting and performance, which makes their overall sound a lot less reliant on outside help than other groups of the period. Titles include "This Time", "Off & On Love", "Be Mine Tonight", "Mardi Gras", "Capture The Moon", "Woman In Flames", and "Intimate Strangers". LP, Vinyl record album
(Shrinkwrap is shopworn, with some tears.)

Kenny CoxIntroducing Kenny Cox & the Contemporary Jazz Quartet ... LP
Blue Note, 1969. Very Good ... $19.99
An overlooked late 60s treasure on Blue Note – one of the few new groups to work on the label at the time, and an up-and-coming modern combo from Detroit! The album's quite unique for a number of reasons – not just because the group was a little-known new signing to the label, but also because the work is quite far-reaching at times – some of the most free-thinking jazz recorded for Blue Note during the time, with a sense of boldness that almost stretches back to Jackie McLean's first few records of the new thing years, or a sense of lyrical invention that's a bit like Wayne Shorter when he made a shift towards the outside. Some numbers are awash in fast colors and changes, while others are a bit more in the pocket, with echoes of soul jazz – but the whole thing's incredibly fresh and free, a wonderful little record that only gets better and better over the years! The group features pianist Kenny Cox as the leader, plus Charles Moore on trumpet, Leon Henderson on tenor, Ron Brooks on bass, and Danny Spencer on drums. Titles include "Mystique", "You", "Trance Dance", "Eclipse", and "Number Four". LP, Vinyl record album
(Liberty stereo pressing. Cover has some wear and a sticker in one corner.)

New Four FreshmenFour Freshmen & Five Trumpets ... LP
Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Strong work from the Four Freshmen – a great album of jazz harmony vocal tracks, done in a similar manner as their classic Trombones session for Capitol. This one's got Dick Reynolds of the group handling the arrangements – with a brace of west coast trumpet players, and a jazzy rhythm section that includes Milt Raskin and Jack Marshall. Tracks have an amazing approach to the material – with the kind of mindblowing vocal parts that Brian Wilson always claimed as an inspiration, and which (dare we say it) are handled here at this early date with more sophistication than he ever used! Titles include "Got A Date With An Angel", "Goodbye", "Laughing On The Outside", "There Will Never Be Another You", and "Give Me The Simple Life". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original turquoise label pressing. Cover has splitting on the top and bottom seams.)

New Carolyn FranklinChain Reaction ... LP
RCA, 1970. Very Good ... $24.99
Proud and loud female soul from Carolyn Franklin – a singer who's every bit as great as her famous sisters Aretha and Erma – heard here on her second outing for RCA! The album's got a bit more sophistication than the first – a style that's still drenched in Franklin's deep soul roots, but which pushes some wider song styles into the mix – at a level that helps Carolyn keep from being a cliched copy of Aretha. Arrangements are by Sonny Sanders, Wade Marcus, and Bert DeCoteux – and Carolyn's vocals are backed by The Sounds of Soul on a number of cuts – a trio of female singers, but one that's a lot harder-hitting than the Sweet Inspirations over at Atlantic. Titles include "Not On The Outside", "Shattered Pride", "You Really Didn't Mean It", "Right On!", "I Ain't Gonna Love Nobody Else", and "Chain Reaction". LP, Vinyl record album

Caroline PeytonMock Up ... LP
Bar-B-Q, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $39.99
A wild set of early 70s leftfield folk from Caroline Peyton – a freewheeling batch of tunes that's a little bit more out there than the warmer, sunshine folk soul of the later Intuition album – but a unique gem that's a great showcase for Caroline's stunning voice, and the songwriting of partner Mark Bingham. The duo's creative origins trace back to a hippie commune outside of Bloomington, Indiana – and the tunes often feel like an unselfconscious, artier riff on the Cali folk scene of the time. The arrangements are built around the voice, and piano on many of the tracks. Unconventional, but warm and true – well worth a late discovery. Original album tracks include "The Sky In Japan Is Always Close To You", "Pull", "Don Beggs", "Tuna", "Engram", "Sweet Misery", "Hook", "Gone For A Day" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Bud PowellBud Powell In Paris ... LP
Reprise, 1964. Very Good+ ... $5.99
A surprising Bud Powell album for Reprise Records – and one of the label's hippest jazz titles ever! When Frank Sinatra first started up the Reprise imprint, he let Duke Ellington do a bit of A&R for the jazz division – and one of the first things Ellington did was capture the great Bud Powell in his then-local setting of Paris – in this rough edgey session that turned out to be one of Powell's last albums, and one of his best from the 60s. The record is nothing fancy on the outside – just simple piano trio versions of jazz standards like "Parisian Thoroughfare", "I Can't Get Started", "Jordu", and "Dear Old Stockholm" – but Powell's dark genius turns the tracks into jagged little razors, cutting with an emotional depth that's quite surprising. Duke Ellington produced – and trio members include Gilbert Rovere on bass and Carl Fields on drums. LP, Vinyl record album
(Discovery pressing, from 1981.)

Public Image Ltd.Public Image – First Issue ... LP
Virgin (UK), 1978. Very Good+ ... $19.99
The bracing debut of Public Image Itd! First Issue is seriously one of the most stunning post punk albums of its time – and we think it's light years ahead of the Sex Pistols in terms of boundless creativity and originality. Given that the Pistols disintegrated mere months before First Issue was issued, this album is all the more amazing for how hugely different Public Image is – different from Lydon's own earlier revolutionary punk act and different from absolutely everything else on the late 70s landscape. The dissonant, driving post punk guitars and sneering vocals are recognizable, sure, but the dubby textures and more angular touches are so far outside the box and so hugely influential that it's hard to fathom myriad underground rock acts existing without it. Vital! Titles include "Theme", "Religion", "Religion II", "Annalisa", "Public Image", "Low Life", "Attack" and "Fodderstompf". LP, Vinyl record album
(UK pressing, with heavy inner sleeve too!)

New Jorge Lopez RuizAmor Buenos Aires ... LP
Catalyst, 1971/1977. Very Good+ ... $9.99
An expansive set of post-Coltrane jazz from bassist Jorge Lopez Ruiz and a large ensemble of Argentinian players that includes Fernando Gelbard on piano and flute, Chivo Borrarro on tenor, and Santiago Giacobbe on organ. The style of the album shifts from track to track – and over the course of the album's 4 long original tunes, the group sometimes veers outside, sometimes goes for a freer grooving mode, and sometimes brings in a chorus with a slightly ambitious feel. Titles include "Relatos", "Amor Buenos Aires", "Bronca Buenos Aires", and "La Cuidad Vida". LP, Vinyl record album

New Pharoah SandersKarma ... LP
Impulse, 1969. Very Good Gatefold ... $24.99
Quite possibly the best-remembered album from Pharoah Sanders' legendary run at Impulse Records – a set that crossed over big, and sold to countless folks who might not have bought a jazz album this hip otherwise! The record was Sanders' first in the wake of Coltrane's passing – and it's a beautiful extended suite of tracks that flows with a sense of grace, power, and majesty that's simply breathtaking – a new level of expression in spiritual jazz – and virtually the blueprint for an entire generation to come! The album features the classic track "The Creator Has a Master Plan" – spanning a tremendous amount of space and time – and featuring Leon Thomas' classic vocals on the lyrics! Thomas also returns on the cut "Colors", which is a bit more outside, and quite free overall – and other players on the date include Lonnie Liston Smith on piano, James Spaulding on flute, Julius Watkins on French horn, Ron Carter and Richard Davis on bass, and Freddie Waits and Billy Hart on drums.

Gene ShawDebut In Blues ... LP
Argo, 1963. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Beautiful! Gene Shaw's one of the most overlooked talents in jazz from this era – and this is one of his greatest albums! After running away from Mingus after the Tijuana Moods sessions (Mingus threatened to kill him), trumpeter Clarence Shaw moved to Chicago, started using his middle name of "Gene", and started working with a bunch of musicians that were all geniuses in playing and composition, but who never really made a name for themselves outside of the city. This rare Argo album captures that scene perfectly, and features Shaw's trumpet on 8 fantastic original tracks – deftly shifting between modernism and soul jazz, in a mode that's incredibly sophisticated for the time. Many tracks are written by Jim Taylor, the excellent young pianist in Shaw's group – and tracks include "Debut In Blues", "Karachi", "The Gentle Princess", "Travelog", "Not Too Cool", and "Who Knows".

Bob ThompsonSound Of Speed ... LP
Dot, 1960. Very Good+ ... $38.99
Jazzy orchestral sweep spiked with actual vehicular sounds – groovy, groovy sounds from San Francisco reared arranger Bob Thompson – his rare early easy listening conceptual gem Sound Of Speed cut outside after a few gems for RCA at the dawn of the 60s! RCA/Victor released some late 50s/early 60s Thompson efforts full of HiFi orchestral grooves, and this one, recorded in Italy by the Orchestra dei Concerti de Rom while Thompson was on temporary leave from RCA, buzzes along with a cheekier, groovier charm thanks to the transport theme – with soaring numbers dedicated to and including the sounds of diesel trains, motor scooters, ocean liners, jet planes, speed boats, roadsters and streetcars. Titles include "Super Chief", "Midnight Sailing", "La Vespa", "Three Wheeler Waltz", "Star Fire", "Surrey Serenade", "Early-Bird Whirly-Bird" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

New Norman ConnorsDance Of Magic (Cobblestone pressing) ... LP
Cobblestone, 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A landmark first album from drummer Norman Connors – a spiritual jazz masterpiece that builds wonderfully on the post-Coltrane tradition! Norman is years away from his smoother soul recordings at this point, and coming out of a righteous jazz background that included work with Marion Brown and Archie Shepp. For this initial set, Norman's in incredible company – working with players that include Herbie Hancock on both electric and acoustic keys, plus Eddie Henderson on trumpet, Gary Bartz and Carlos Garnett on saxes, Stanley Clarke on bass, and Billy Hart and Airto on percussion – plus a chorus of vocalists on the album's mighty title cut! Tracks are all long, spiritual, and freely exploratory – but never in a style that goes too far outside, or that forgets the joy and love that can spring forth in a forward-thinking session like this one! Titles include "Dance Of Magic", "Give The Drummer Some", "Morning Change", and "Blue". LP, Vinyl record album

New Fever TreeFever Tree ... LP
Uni, 1968. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Late 60s psych from Texas – the self-titled set from Fever Tree – which finds group adapting some outside penned tunes of the day nicely into the good natured psychedelic groove. The arrangements are what make the group special, rolling from soaring pop sounds into harder edged TX school of psychedelia, and back again. Instrumentation includes the kind of core rock sound with keys, harp, flute, cello and more – and the record even sports some string & horn arrangements by David Angel and Gene Page! Titles include "Imitation Situation 1", "Where Do You Go?", "Return Of The Native", "Man Who Paints The Pictures", "The Sun Also Rises", "Unlock My Door", "Come With Me" and more.

New Pharoah SandersJewels Of Thought ... LP
Impulse, 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wonderful reunion of Pharoah Sanders and vocalist Leon Thomas – and a set that captures a lot of the same energy as the pair's previous record – Karma! Thomas' vocals are in wonderful form for the set – stretching out soulfully on the extended classic "Hum-Allah-Hum-Allah-Hum-Allah" – a title that has much of the same grace and power as "The Creator Has A Master Plan. The rest of the players on the date include Lonnie Liston Smith on piano, Richard Davis and Cecil McBee on basses, and Idris Muhammad and Roy Haynes on drums – and unusually enough, each of the double bassists and drummers gets their own channel of sound to work with! The other long track on the album is the extended "Sun In Aquarius" – which is a bit more outside, but still pretty great! LP, Vinyl record album

New Archie Shepp & The Full Moon EnsembleLive In Antibes Vol 1 ... LP
Actuel (France), 1970. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A seminal live set from tenorist Archie Shepp – and some of his freest, least-structured material ever! Shepp's still a righteous force here on his horn, but there also seems to be equal emphasis on the contributions of all members of the group – woven together in a really rich tapestry of sound, but with less of the structuring righteous concepts of some of Archie's other work – especially his sides for Impulse. Shepp had really been experiencing some new freedoms on the French scene of the late 60s – even more so than in the US avant outfield – and you can definitely hear him taking flight here, with a like-minded group of players that includes Clifford Thornton on trombone and shenai, Alan Shorter on flugelhorn, Joseph Dujean on guitar, Beb Guerin on bass, and Claud Delcloo on drums. This first part of the live set features one long track – "The Early Bird" – a slow building number that goes increasingly outside as it progresses, featuring some very over the top solo work from Shepp, who also plays a bit of piano on the set!

New Stevie WonderJourney Through The Secret Life Of Plants ... LP
Tamla, 1979. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Very high concept work from Stevie Wonder! The record is, in fact, about the "secret life of plants" – partially used as a soundtrack for a film of the same name, but also acting as kind of a storybook in itself! Stevie's exploring a wide range of plant life and plant themes on the set – often in a way that has his keyboards taking center stage in little symphonies of soul that unfold like the petals of a flower in the morning sun – and which stand out as quite different from some of his vocal work, marking him as a talented electronic musician in his own right. Many tracks do have lyrics, too – often with themes of growing, seeding, and other garden metaphors that are easily translated to the human experience. Titles include "Secret Life Of Plants", "Outside My Window", "A Seed's A Star", "Race Babbling", "Black Orchid", "Send One Your Love", "Tree", "Come Back As A Flower", and "Ai No Sono".

New VariousSoul Jazz Love Strata-East ... LP
Soul Jazz (UK), 1994. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A now-legendary collection – one of the first later generation efforts to bring back the righteous sound of the Strata East label! The cuts here are all the stuff of legend – some of the most soulful, spiritual jazz cuts from the 70s – virtually genre-defining music, as we've seen from so many folks' use of the term "Strata East" to refer to a certain kind of jazz from the 70s! The tunes all have a long-flowing, and totally organic feel – searching, soaring jazz in the best post-Coltrane modes – filled with experimental energy, yet never going outside enough to be considered avant – a balance that's kept the Strata groove special for so many years. There's a great array of classics in the double-length set – and titles include "Smiling Billy Suite" by the Heath Brothers, "First Impressions" by Shamek Farrah, "Peace Go With You Brother" by Gil Scott Heron, "Prince of Peace" by Pharoah Sanders, "Hopscotch" by Charlie Rouse, "Well You Needn't" by Larry Ridley, "John Coltrane" by Clifford Jordan, "Dance Of The Little Children" by Billy Parker, "Eddie Harris" by Clifford Jordan, "Travelling Man" by Stanley Cowell, and "The Bottle" by Gil Scott Heron.

New John ColtraneInfinity ... LP
Impulse, 1965/1972. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
The John Coltrane sound stretching out to Infinity – beautifully collaborating core spiritual sounds recorded when The Great One was still alive, and later string passages done by Alice Coltrane in the early 70s! The initial tracks are very open and almost easygoing – not the full-on outside expressions of some other Coltrane unreleased sides from the time, but the more cosmic sound of Love Supreme – carried out by musicians that include Alice Coltrane on harp, piano, and organ – plus Pharoah Sanders on tenor, McCoy Tyner on piano, Jimmy Garrison and Charlie Haden on bass, Rashied Ali on percussion, and Elvin Jones on drums. The strings are surprisingly wonderful, too – kind of linking the Coltrane and post-Coltrane generations in ways that are really marvelous, and filled with the kind of majesty that Coltrane should have deserved while still on this planet! Titles include "Living Space", "Joy", "Leo", and "Peace On Earth". LP, Vinyl record album

New Circuit RiderCircuit Rider ... LP
Circuit Rider, 1980. Used (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Dark and moody folk-psych from the American underground – a record once included on a list of "Top Ten Records Most Likely To Be Owned By A Serial Killer"! We're not sure if the set's as nasty as that might imply – as there's actually a heartfelt, almost earnest quality to the vocals – a slightly bluesy undercurrent, mixed with acoustic and electric guitar riffs – and almost spoken at times – or maybe not spoken, kind of "exclaimed" – as if the lyrics were coming to singer Thorn Oehrig right at the time he was recording them! All this makes for a great sense of reflection on the record – quite different than the posturing you might normally get on such a record – especially given that some of the tunes get really tripped out, with some really weird guitar parts. The set was recorded in 1980, but really feels like some lost biker psyche outsider set from the late 60s or early 70s – with heavy themes of drugs, death, and loneliness – all recorded with a rough-edged quality that further underscores the feelings in the music. Titles include "Limousine Ride", "Billy Bad Billy", "Red Dog", "Old Charlie Polecat", "Old Time Feeling", "How Long", and "Just For Today". LP, Vinyl record album
