✨✧ Larry CarltonSinging/Playing ... LP
Chisa/Blue Thumb, 1973. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Larry Carlton steps out in a warmly-produced session that's got a really sweet LA studio vibe – one that mixes together fusion backings and some compressed vocalizations that remind us a bit of some of the work on Nick DiCaro's excellent 70s album! The record's got a really great Cafe Apres ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Crusaders2nd Crusade ... LP
Blue Thumb/Chisa, 1973. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $3.99
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

CrusadersChain Reaction ... LP
Blue Thumb, 1975. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $5.99
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 ... LP
Chisa/Blue Thumb, 1971. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $3.99
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 LP, Vinyl record album

CrusadersImages ... LP
Blue Thumb, 1978. Near Mint- ... $1.99
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. 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. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
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

✨✧ Luis GascaLuis Gasca (For Those Who Chant) ... LP
Blue Thumb, 1971. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $16.99
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

✨✧ Paul HumphreyAmerica, Wake Up ... LP
Blue Thumb, 1973. Near Mint- ... $19.99
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, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... On November 10, 2017
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 ... LP
Blue Thumb, 1970. Used ... 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 LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Phil UpchurchLovin' Feeling ... LP
Blue Thumb, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $9.99
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 ...
