CrusadersChain Reaction (Original Master Recording) ... LP
Mobile Fidelity/Blue Thumb, 1975. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $19.99
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 ... $4.99
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

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

✨✧ Hugh MasekelaHome Is Where The Music Is ... LP
Blue Thumb, 1972. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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)... $24.99
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. Very Good ... $12.99
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 LP, Vinyl record album

Phil UpchurchDarkness, Darkness ... CD
Blue Thumb/Higher Plane, 1972. New Copy ... $8.99 15.98
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
