Mort GarsonZodiac Cosmic Sounds (mono pressing – on glow-in-the-dark vinyl) ... LP
Elektra/Rhino, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $15.99 17.98
The Zodiac never sounded so spooky – and the album's one of the first in a trend that explored astrology with funky musical backings! The music for the set was put together by moogy maestro Mort Garson – then making a transition from being a straight easy arranger in the early 60s, to more of a tripped-out pop-psychedelic artist of the latter part of the decade. Garson brings a nice funky undercurrent to the set – in a style that's similar to the work of David Axelrod, but which also uses a bit more electric instrumentation. Each track features a spoken bit on a Zodiac sign – written by Jacques Wilson, and spoken by Cyrus Faryar – and the album also features some nice moog work by Paul Beaver! Titles include "Aries", "Taurus", "Cancer", "Leo", and so on! (P.S.: The label says "Must Be Played In The Dark!") LP, Vinyl record album
(50th Anniversary mono pressing on limited edition glow-in-the-dark vinyl!)

✨✧ Al HirtSoul In the Horn ... LP
RCA, 1967. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
One of Al Hirt's grooviest records – and a set that definitely lives up to the "soul" in the title! The album's always in demand for the excellent sample cut "Harlem Hendoo", but it certainly isn't a one tracker – thanks to composer Paul Griffin and arranger Teacho Wiltshire, as Hirt gets un-characteristically funky on tunes like "Honey Pot", "Mess Around", "Girl", and "Love Ya' Baby". LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo pressing with deep groove. Cover has some wear & a splitting top seam.)

Laurindo AlmeidaViva Bossa Nova! ... LP
Capitol, 1962. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
A sweet little album from Laurindo Almeida and his "Bossa Nova All Stars" – not a group of Brazilian musicians, and instead a hip set of LA players who really help make the set sparkle! There's a bit more jazz here than on some of Laurindo's other Capitol records of the time – a great 60s update to the groove he first forged in the 50s with Bud Shank – featuring even more swinging rhythms, inventive instrumentation, and a slightly larger group with players who include Jimmy Rowles on organ, Howard Roberts on guitar, Bob Cooper on tenor, Don Fagerquist on trumpet, Justin Gordon on flute, and Shelly Manne, Chico Guerrero, and Milt Holland on percussion! The use of organ is especially nice – a warm wave of sound on top of some great bossa rhythms – and titles include "Naked City Theme", "Teach Me Tonight", "Desafinado", "Mr Lucky", "Theme From Route 66", and "One Note Samba". LP, Vinyl record album

David AxelrodSong Of Innocence ... LP
Capitol/Now Again, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... On May 18, 2018 (delayed)
A masterpiece! This is one of David Axelrod's most perfectly realized albums – and it's a brilliant batch of baroque arrangements, jazzy solos, and slightly subtle funky bits! The album contains the much-sampled song "Holy Thursday", but the whole thing has a very similar feel to that track – with lots of sinister strings, rumbling drums, and archly-modern bits of instrumentation. A real killer – and with the cuts "The Smile", "A Dream", "Song Of Innocence", and "The Mental Traveller". William Blake never sounded so funky! (Jazz, Now Sound) LP, Vinyl record album

Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassWhipped Cream & Other Delights ... LP
A&M, 1965. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
Trumpety magic from Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass – a record that's known not only for its classic cover of a model dipped in whipped cream, but also for it's tremendously groovy groove! The Tijuana sound is very firmly in place by the time of this set – Mexican-inspired, but compressed down into a sweet little LA groove in that magical A&M way – never too over the top, done in a way that takes a previously-hokey brassy sound, and smoothes it out for the Now Sound generation! Titles include the hit single "Whipped Cream", plus "Taste Of Honey", "Green Peppers", "Bittersweet Samba", "Lemon Tree", "Ladyfingers", and "Butterball". LP, Vinyl record album
(Tan label pressing.)

Ron AnthonyOh! Calcutta ... LP
Flying Dutchman, 1969. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $33.99
A sweet mix of jazz, funk, and some tighter instrumental modes – a set that takes all the best energy of the Flying Dutchman label, and packs it into shorter tracks that have a very groovy feel! At some level, the album's a bit like the work that Tom Scott was doing for the label at the time, but with a more compact vibe – and maybe more ensemble focus than longer solos – but still a great sound overall! Scott's actually on the record, playing reeds along with the great Plas Johnson – and other players include Dennis Budimir on guitar and Emil Richards on percussion – but Ron Anthony handles the main guitar work himself. The title cut is a great remake of the naturally funky "Oh Calcutta" – and other titles include "I Am Yellow", "Ballad Of John & Yoko", and "Waltz Of The Groupies". (Jazz, Now Sound) LP, Vinyl record album

Aquarian AgeHair ... LP
Itco, Early 70s. Very Good ... $5.99
A strange knockoff version of the Hair soundtrack – recorded by The Aquarian Age, an ensemble that was certainly formed only for the album! The set was arranged and produced by Walt Andrus, who was most likely the creative talent behind the record – and the overall feel of the album is kind of a garagey take on the score, rougher than the usual soundtrack version, with some nice musical touches kind of buried under the vocals. Titles include "Electric Blues", "Good Morning Starshine", "3500", "Abie Baby", "Donna", "Sodomy", and "Frank Mills". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has half split seams.)

Burt BacharachMake It Easy On Yourself ... LP
A&M, 1969. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Fantastic work by maestro Burt Bacharach – subtle genius, and an album that offers more to us every time we listen to it! Burt's work has been recorded by many – but few ever gave it the kind of treatment that he did – as you'll hear in this brilliant array of sweeping strings, sly syncopation, and well-placed instrumental solos! The sound is breathtaking throughout – a new level of maturity and majesty for 60s instrumental pop – and the record's an enduring classic that deserves a place in every sensitive record collection. Includes the amazing cut "Pacific Coast Highway", plus great versions of other classics, like "Wanting Things", "She's Gone Away", "Knowing When To Leave", and "This Guy's In Love With You". LP, Vinyl record album
(Brown label pressing.)
