Pointer SistersHaving A Party ... LP
Blue Thumb, 1977. Very Good ... $5.99
The name may be a bit hokey, but this is one heck of a great little record – every bit as sly and funky as work on the group's excellent Steppin album! The man to thank here is Sonny Burke – who handled arrangement and direction of the backings – and who brings in plenty of heavy electric funk touches to the record – and takes it way past the jazzy retro cliches that the group first brought to their early albums. The record burns more brightly than many other mainstream sessions of its time – with a groove that's hard and vocals that are plenty darn soulful – making us wonder why oh why these guys ever slipped so much into the world of crossover pop! Titles include "I Need A Man", "Don't It Drive You Crazy", "Waiting On You", "I'll Get By Without You", "Bring Your Sweet Stuff Home To Me", and "Lonely Gal". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear.)

Ike & Tina TurnerOutta Season ... LP
Blue Thumb, Early 70s. Very Good Gatefold ... $14.99
One of the last albums that Ike & Tina cut together – a great set that's hard, raw, and soulful, with a good rootsy feel that makes them stand out against Ike & Tina's other albums from the time! 13 tracks in all, including "I've Been Loving You Too Long", "Mean Old World", "3 O'Clock In The Morning Blues", "Five Long Years", "Dust My Broom", "I Am A Motherless Child", "Crazy 'Bout You Baby", "Reconsider Baby", "Honest I Do", "Please Love Me", "My Babe" and "Rock Me Babe". LP, Vinyl record album

New Phil UpchurchDarkness, Darkness ... LP
Blue Thumb, 1972. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $12.99
Plenty of darkness here from Phil Upchurch – those great tones and notes he worked so well back in the 70s – all with that near-perfect quality that made him one of the most in-demand players of his day! The style here is a bit different than some of Phil's previous work in Chicago – as the set was recorded on the west coast with support from players who include Joe Sample on piano, Arthur Adams on rhythm guitar, Chuck Rainey on bass, and Harvey Mason on drums. But that shift of locale hasn't dampened Phil's sound at all – and he's still getting a bit of hometown help from Donny Hathaway, who arranged a few tracks and also plays a bit of electric piano on the record. Other arrangements are by Nick DeCaro, and titles include "Love & Peace", "Darkness, Darkness", "Cold Sweat", "Fire And Rain", "Please Send Me Someone To Love" and "Inner City Blues". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cut corner.)

New Pointer SistersPointer Sisters ... LP
Blue Thumb, 1973. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Their first album, and the one that's got their big version of Allen Toussaint's "Yes We Can Can" – which starts with a nice break, too! Other tracks include "Sugar", "Pains & Tears", "Jasa", "River Boulevard", and "Cloudburst". The album's a lot stronger than later work – done with a kind of nostalgic soul approach, one that was very much in the Blue Thumb style of hipness of the early 70s, and less silly than the group's later straight pop style.

New RampCome Into Knowledge (180 graqm pressing) ... LP
Blue Thumb, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest albums of all time – a masterpiece of moody soul, spacey vocals, and jazzy vibes – all produced by the legendary Roy Ayers! Ramp take their name from the anagram Roy Ayers Musical Productions – and in a way, the group's the summation of all the genius that Roy had been cooking up on his own albums of the 70s – served up at an even higher level than before! The group boasts a unique two-female vocal style – sung together in a mode that had been used on Roy's own albums, but never this fully – all supported by some complex jazzy instrumentation, very heavy on the vibes and keyboards! Nearly every cut is fantastic – and the album has a strange off-kilter vibe that's totally amazing, and which has captivated soul fans for years – a blend of mellow and upbeat, complicated and straightforward that's totally great. Titles include the massive cut "Daylight", sampled famously over the years, plus "American Promise", "Come Into Knowledge", "I Just Love You", and the band's great cover of "Everybody Loves the Sunshine", done in a way that's strangely both similar and different than Roy's own version! LP, Vinyl record album
Also available Come Into Knowledge ... CD 6.99
