Eddie Cleanhead VinsonOriginal Cleanhead ... LP
Flying Dutchman, 1970. Very Good+ ... $14.99
A really sweet late effort from bluesy soul singer and sax player Eddie Cleanhead Vinson – his dawn of the 70s comeback – done for the the Flying Dutchman label's Bluestime imprint. Cleanhead covered a a whole lot of stylistic range in earlier years, from big band vocalist, to R&B shouter, to bebop era alto sax player – and he comfortably displays that range here, albeit in a loose, easygoing bluesy soul mode – backed by a great group of session players that includes Joe Pass, Artie Butler, Arthur Wright and Plas Johnson. Bob Thiele produced, and the titles include "Cleanhead Blues", "Pass Out", "Alimony Blues", "Cleanhead Is Back", "Juice Head Baby", "Old Maid Boogie", "One O'Clock Humph" and "I Needs To Be Be'd Wid".

Eddie Cleanhead VinsonYou Can't Make Love Alone ... LP
Mega/Flying Dutchman, 1971. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Eddie was way more than a bluesman – and here's the proof of that! The album has Eddie both singing and playing alto sax – in a set of hip, openly flowing tracks recorded live at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 1971. The group features some strong funky jazz players – like Neal Creque, Cornell Dupree, Chuck Rainey, and Pretty Purdie – and although the mode of the tracks is definitely blues in rhythm and pacing, there's some wonderfully jazzy touches, not only from the other players on the set, but also from Eddie's alto solos, which have an early 60s soul jazz kind of approach. All tracks are long, and titles include "Straight No Chaser", "Person To Person", "I Had A Dream", and "You Can't Make Love Alone". LP, Vinyl record album
