CrusadersBest Of The Crusaders ... LP
Blue Thumb/ABC, Early 70s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $3.99
Fantastic funky jazz from the Crusaders! The set includes some of their best cuts from their years at Blue Thumb – when they were slicking things up a bit, but still staying pretty true to their soul jazz roots. There's a lot of nice electric funky numbers, and more than a few hip hop ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CrusadersChain Reaction (Original Master Recording) ... LP
Mobile Fidelity/Blue Thumb, 1975. Near Mint- ... $24.99
On this one, the Crusaders definitely crossed from jazz into funk – but who cares, because the album's so darn great! The record's got a tight LA groove, with some excellent electric keyboards, sweet sax solos, and tight drumming throughout. True proof that sometimes a lot of money can be ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CrusadersCrusaders 1 ... CD
Chisa/Blue Thumb, 1971. Used ... $8.99
Sweet funky Crusaders – one of the first records the group made after dropping the "Jazz" from their name, and a soulful electric set through and through! The group still have that tightly-crafted soul jazz sound that made their late 60s recordings so great – but they're also ... read more CD

✨✧ CrusadersSouthern Comfort ... LP
Blue Thumb, 1974. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily 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

CrusadersThose Southern Knights ... LP
Blue Thumb/ABC, 1976. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $1.99
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

✨✧ CrusadersUnsung Heroes ... LP
Blue Thumb/Chisa, 1973. Very Good ... $1.99
Very nice heavy funk material, recorded by The Crusaders right at the pivotal time when they were moving from straigher soul jazz to a nice electric 70s groove! The record features some excellent original compositions by the band – like "Crossfire", "Unsung Heroes", " ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Paul HumphreySupermellow ... LP
Blue Thumb, 1972. Very Good+ ... $24.99
Not Supermellow, but super dope – one of the grooviest albums ever from drummer Paul Humphrey, and a sweet batch of laidback electric funky jazz cuts! Paul's working here with a bit more keyboards and guitar than before – all nicely compressed into the grooves that are directed by his ... (Soul, Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Sun RaSpace Is The Place (180 gram vinyl – with download) ... LP
Blue Thumb (Germany), Early 70s. 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

✨✧ Gabor Szabo & Bobby WomackHigh Contrast ... CD
Verve/Blue Thumb, 1970. Used ... $7.99
Excellent early 70s work from jazz guitarist Gabor Szabo – a super-dope album that's one of the best he ever recorded! Part of the success of the record has to do with the presence of Bobby Womack – normally a soul singer, but also a heck of a guitarist, playing here alongside Szabo in ... read more CD

✨✧ Phil UpchurchDarkness, Darkness ... LP
Blue Thumb, 1972. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $9.99
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 ... (Soul, Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album
