Brian AugerGenesis ... LP
Polydor, Late 60s/1974. Very Good+ ... $5.99
US collection of work by Brian Auger from the late 60s – released on Polygram, most likely to cash in on the fame he was having with the Oblivion Express group. Not that that fame was that great, though – and frankly, we always like this stuff a lot better, as Brian's funky organ is ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Roy AyersLive At The Montreux Jazz Festival (Japanese pressing – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Polydor/Universal (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful live set from 1972 – and a very unique album from Roy Ayers' Polydor years! The album originally was never issued in the US – clearly done for a hipper European market at the time – and it's got more of a jazz vibe than some of Roy's other work on Polydor, with sounds ...

✨✧ Count BasieFarmers Market Barbecue ... CD
Pablo/Polydor (Japan), 1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Count Basie and Barbecue – words together that are bound to make us love this album! The set's got an easygoing swing that takes us right back to Basie's best for Roulette Records – a reference the title seems to imply – and although the band's a later one, they've got that ... read more CD
(80s Japanese pressing.)

✨✧ Brave New WorldImpressions On Reading Aldous Huxley ... LP
Polydor/Wah Wah (Spain), 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Now that we actually live in the future of yesterday, it's hard to imagine the power that the book Brave New World had when writer Aldous Huxley first launched it on the world – a generation-shaping sense of ideas that had plenty of champions and celebrations, including this legendary German ...

✨✧ Max GregerChristmas Wonderland ... CD
Polydor/Jazzclub (Germany), Late 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Christmas magic from German reedman Max Greger – served up in a richly sentimental mode that's just right for the Holiday – yet with a few groovy touches too! Most tracks have the sparkling polish you'd guess from Greger's image on the cover – rooted in jazz, but given lots of ... (Holiday Music, Jazz) read more CD

Polydor (Germany), Mid 70s. New Copy 4 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A killer collection of work from one of the funkiest European talents of the 70s – bandleader Peter Herbholzheimer, working here at the head of his Rhythm & Brass group, and his Certain Lions & Tigers ensemble! Although Herbolzheimer's got a clunky name, his sound is incredibly fluid ... read more CD

✨✧ John McLaughlinExtrapolation ... LP
Polydor, 1968. Very Good ... $11.99
Most likely our favorite album by John McLaughlin – and one that features him in a wonderfully spare setting – alongside John Surman on saxes, Brian Odges on bass, and Tony Oxley on drums. The playing has a free and loose quality that McLaughlin would later lose on some his more fusion- ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

NiagaraAfire ... LP
Polydor/Wah Wah (Spain), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
Heavy percussion galore – and one of the seminal early 70s classics from the Niagara combo of German drummer Klaus Weiss! The sound here is far more percussive than even on the group's more famous album for Liberty – and in addition to Weiss' work on the drum kit, the album also ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy OwensNo Escaping It ... LP
Polydor, 1970. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Excellent work by this underrated trumpet player – a haunting set of tracks that range from moody soul jazz, to straighter funkier numbers, all handled with the kind of flourish you'd expect more from a small-label indie release than a major label session. Owens is in good company here ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Clark TerryClark Terry At The Montreux Jazz Festival With The Inernational Festival Big Band ... LP
Polydor, 1969. Very Good+ ... $6.99
A great album – much better than the usual Terry outing, as he's playing here with a hip group of European players that includes some obscurer talents that later went onto do some very tasty funk. Players include Dave Pike on vibes, Louis Stewart on guitar, Eero Koivistoinen on alto, and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Polydor (UK), 1969. Used ... Out Of Stock
Incredible first album from a player who would go onto become one of the major soul jazz talents of the 70's – and one of the owners of the Strata East label. Tolliver plays here with the original incarnation of his Music Inc group – which includes Stanley Cowell, Steve Novosel, and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(This is the original Polydor UK version – with a cover that's completely different than the later US pressing. NOTE: Cover has an unglued top seam and staining & waviness.)

Randy WestonAfrican Rhythms – Niles Little Big (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Polydor (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $26.99
Mindblowing work from Randy Weston – one of two albums he cut in Paris at the end of the 60s with his ultra-hip African Rhythms ensemble – a free-thinking collective of piano, percussion, and some very soulful bass! The sound on the album's a lot freer than some of Weston's other work ... read more CD

✨✧ Tony Williams LifetimeTurn It Over ... CD
Polydor, 1970. Used ... $4.99
Although Tony Williams started out as one of the most subtle drummers of the 60s, this album has him coming a long way from his "new thing" Blue Note recordings – and taking off with enough power to reach the moon! The group featured is Williams classic Lifetime lineup – with ... read more CD
