Gil Scott-HeronFirst Minute Of A New Day ... CD
Arista/Soul Brother (UK), 1975. New Copy ... $16.99
Gil Scott Heron's first album for Arista – very much in the mellow soul jazz work of his legendary album on Strata East!

Gil Scott-HeronIt's Your World ... CD
Arista/Soul Brother (UK), 1976. New Copy ... $16.99
A standout set from Gil Scott-Heron – and that's saying a lot, given the strength of his other 70s work! This album's a double-length live set – one that has Gil taking on the familiar format of the 70s, and using it to really push the boundaries of his own music too! Most tracks are ...

Gil Scott-HeronNew Black Poet – Small Talk At 125th & Lenox ... CD
Flying Dutchman/BGP, 1971. New Copy ... $11.99
Gil Scott-Heron's first album – and his angriest!

All the work is his own, and the album's ... (Soul, Vocalists) read more CD

Nina SimoneHere Comes The Sun ... CD

Classic RCA work from the great Nina Simone – and an album that definitely shows Nina hitting more of the soul spectrum than some of her folk and jazz work of the 60s!

Valiant/Warner (Japan), Early 60s. New Copy ... $13.99
Hardly a real bossa album, but a great example of the way the music played in the US during the 60s! The cover has an image of a hand extending from a window, dropping a record that says "Cha Cha Cha" into a garbage can that already contains records that say "twist" and "ma ... read more CD

Concord, 2016. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98
Esperanza Spaulding looks more striking than ever on this album cover, but not as striking as the music inside – co-produced by Spaulding with Tony Visconti – the longtime David Bowie collaborator who really brings a sharp sort of focus to the set!

The last album in Leon Thomas' classic run of albums for the Flying Dutchman label – and one of the most unique as well! There's a tighter feel here than some of Thomas' more free-flowing spiritual jazz sessions – but the sound is hardly commercial at all, either – and still has ... read more CD
