Shades Of Joy

LP (Item 6338) Fontana, Late 60s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 5

Shades of Joy were one of those cool little sixties bands that fell through the cracks – a San Francisco based, racially-mixed jazz group that had rock leanings, but did some neat groovy stuff. We like some of the instrumental cuts on here, but especially love "Icarus Revealed", a cool vocal ditty about the Greek pilot! Other tracks have a great mix of jazz, groove, and SF stoner spirituality – in a way that's kind of cheesy, but also instantly captivating and strangely appealing. This is the kind of record we passed by for years, but which we now treasure as the kind of unique little album that we'd be hard pressed to find easily. Titles include "Andy's Dream", "Crying Bag", "Tada", "Come & Throw The Rye Bread", and "It's Time". (Cover has some wear, a cutout hole, and some stains, with some splitting and tape on the top and bottom seams.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Verve, 1972. Very Good- Gatefold
One of the hippest Jimmy Smith albums of the early 70s – a lean and mean, down and dirty, back to basics session for Verve – one that's got plenty of grit in the grooves!

Bitches Brew
Columbia, 1969. Very Good+ 2 LP Gatefold
One of the few cases in jazz where an oft-played classic still resonates with power! The record itself is a key cap to Miles Davis' already-groundbreaking years of the 60s – a bold step forward, not just for his nascent electric sound, but also for jazz in general – and the benchmark ...
