Crusaders2nd Crusade ... LP
Blue Thumb/Chisa, 1973. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $4.99
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

CrusadersImages ... LP
Blue Thumb, 1978. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Hard to miss with The Crusaders at this point – and the album's one of their stone classics from the 70s – just the kind of soulful fusion that few other groups could touch! The core trio of Joe Sample's keyboards, Wilton Felder's saxes, and Stix Hooper's drums is augmented by the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CrusadersScratch ... LP
Blue Thumb/Chisa, 1974. Near Mint- ... $8.99
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. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $5.99
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. 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

✨✧ Luis GascaLuis Gasca (For Those Who Chant) ... LP
Blue Thumb, 1971. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest solo albums ever issued by Latin jazz trumpeter Luis Gasca – a set that really expands on his debut for Atlantic Records, and which brings in a whole host of early 70s west coast Latin influences! The style here is very laidback and open – a bit like some of the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Hugh MasekelaHome Is Where The Music Is ... LP
Blue Thumb, 1972. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99
Massively wonderful work from the mighty Hugh Masekela – easily one of his hippest, most soulful sessions ever! This double-length gem really has Hugh letting go – moving way beyond the pop modes of the late 60s, into a long-flowing, open-rolling groove that's played by a spare quintet ...

✨✧ 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 ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 ... CD
Blue Thumb/Higher Plane, 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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 CD

Phil UpchurchLovin' Feeling ... LP
Blue Thumb, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $11.99
One of Phil Upchurch's best records – and one that's a no-nonsense batch of funky instrumentals that feature some really great guitar! Phil's dropped the Hendrix fuzz of some of his Cadet sides of the late 60s – and instead, he's working in a stretched-out chromatic mode that has bits ...
