✨✧ Crusaders2nd Crusade ... LP
Blue Thumb/Chisa, 1973. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An early 70s classic from The Crusaders – and a record that has the group perfectly poised between the rougher soul jazz of their roots and some of the tighter styles they brought into play during the 70s! The sound here is heavily electric – thanks to great keyboards from Joe Sample ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CrusadersScratch ... LP
Blue Thumb/Chisa, 1974. Very Good ... $3.99
A great Crusaders album – and one that's a perfect bridge between their earlier soul jazz styles, and their tighter funkier electric one. The record was recorded live at the Roxy, and the group is augmented by Larry Carlton on guitar, who gives the tracks a nice razor edge at his best ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ CrusadersSouthern Comfort ... LP
Blue Thumb, 1974. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A landmark album from The Crusaders – and a set that really has them sweetening up their groove with lots of tasty R&B touches! The guitar's a bit more pronounced in the mix on this one – setting up some tightly funky rhythms that almost seem to free up the horns even more for solo ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CrusadersStreet Life ... CD
Blue Thumb, 1979. Used ... $6.99
One of our favorite albums ever from The Crusaders – a set that really sums up all the tightness they'd forged in the 70s, while still showing a new sense of soul and funk as well – expertly balanced with flawless LA production! The album may well be the group's equivalent of a Steely ... read more CD

✨✧ CrusadersThose Southern Knights ... LP
Blue Thumb/ABC, 1976. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Apart from the title's terrible pun on the Glenn Campbell hit of the mid 70s, this album's a real treat – a very soulful batch of smooth funky jazz tunes by The Crusaders, who by this point have fully emerged to claim the throne of the pop soul jazz genre they virtually invented. The record's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Paul HumphreyAmerica, Wake Up ... LP
Blue Thumb, 1973. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A great album of funky instrumentals from legendary drummer Paul Humphrey – a set that's got a wonderfully quirky feel, and rhythms that change up the groove a lot more than usual! Paul's not content to stick in a simple backbeat mode here – and he really opens up in his approach to ... (Soul, Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sun RaSpace Is The Place (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Blue Thumb/Jackpot, 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A brilliant record by Sun Ra & The Arkestra – and an album that forever gave them a slogan to live by! The record's different than some of the other Arkestra work from the time – in that it's a bit tighter and more spiritual, more in keeping with the style of the Blue Thumb label, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Joe SampleCarmel ... CD
ABC/Blue Thumb, 1979. Used ... $5.99
God, we love this record – and we're not ashamed to admit it! Sure, it sold a gazillion copies – and sure, for some folks it showed the true demise of the Crusaders ensemble. But for us, it's a masterpiece of smooth fusion, and a landmark album of easy jazz that spawned countless ... read more CD
