Babs GonzalesTales On The Famous – Guess Who? ... LP
Expubidence, Late 50s. Very Good ... $19.99
One of Bab's rare LPs from the late 50's, when he wasn't doing as much recording for the big labels, and instead was self-releasing crazy material like this. This is a live set, with some musical accompaniment, in which Babs "tells all" about some of the jazz greats. He's changed the names to protect the far from innocent, so Art Blakey becomes Smart Snakely, and Illinois Jacquet becomes Michigan Coat – and Babs' indictments are pretty severe. Apart from being a great funny bit of Babs Gonzales material, this LP is also an amazing insight to the reputations that some of the biggest jazz players had at the time. Great stuff! LP, Vinyl record album
(Pink label pressing with deep groove. Cover is stained on 4 inches along the spine, with some flaking and peeling, and split seams held with pieces of clear tape.)

✨✧ Johnny GriffinStudio Jazz Party ... LP
Riverside, 1960. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Stellar early Riverside session put together by Johnny Griffin's friend (and impresario) Babs Gonzales. Babs decided that the session would be real swingin', real groovy, if they had sort of a "party" in the studio, so he opened up the session, invited a lot of guests, got a lot of food (and booze), and let the festivities begin. The result is one of Johnny Griffin's best recordings, special not only because it's got the vibe that we're describing, but also because it features great performances by underrecorded talents like trumpeter Dave Burns and pianist Norman Simmons. Great stuff! Titles include "Party Time", "Low Gravy", "You've Changed", and "Toe Tappin". LP, Vinyl record album
(70s Japanese pressing, SMJ-6145.)

✨✧ VariousBlues For Christmas - Classic R&B/Blues Christmas Cuts 1956 to 1961 ... CD
Contrast, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The title might be Blues For Christmas, but lots of these tunes are pretty bright and jumpy, too – a nice mix of 50s R&B and early soul styles, served up here in a mighty sweet little package that's a great antidote to some of too-familiar Christmas collections on the market! Most of the artists are names you'll know already – especially if you've got some 50s blues in your collection – but the setting is mighty fresh, and the tunes together spin out for a nicely extended batch of Holiday listening that goes way past the obvious! Titles include "Oh Holy Night" by The Blue Notes, "Christmas Letter" by La Fets & Kitty, "Christmas In Jail" by The Youngsters, "Christmas Time (part 1)" by Jimmy McCracklin, "Can This Be Christmas" by Eddie Floyd & The Falcons, "Rock & Roll Santa Claus" by Huey Smith & The Clowns, "Christmas Celebration" by BB King, "Christmas Tears" by Freddy King, "Rock & Roll Santa Claus" by Babs Gonzales, "When Was Jesus Born" by Marian Williams, "After New Years Eve" by The Heartbeats, "It's Christmas Time" by Marvin & Johnny, and "Santa" by Lightnin Hopkins.

✨✧ VariousLux & Ivy Dig The Beatniks – A Collection Of Finger Lickin Grooves, Deep Thinking Diatribes, & Exploitation 45s ... CD
Righteous (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $12.99
A crazy collection of singles from the pre-hippie years of the beatnik – that cool cat who loved jazz, read poetry, and dug the scene with plenty of attitude! That attitude is the main focus of most of the cuts here – obscure tracks from the late 50s and early 60s that poke fun at the heady thoughts and easy intellectualism of the beat scene – presented in a range of different styles that really run the gamut – from jazz, to rock, to many other genres in between – including a fair bit of offbeat spoken word and instrumental records too! The vibe here follows nicely in the other Lux & Ivy collections on the Righteous label – full of weird and wild records we never would have discovered otherwise – with cuts that include "Dog" by Bob Dorough, "Laffin Beatnik" by Johnny Beeman, "Reaching Into In" by Ken Nordine, "No Pictures Please" by Rod McKuen, "Manhattan Fable" by Babs Gonzales, "Pimples & Braces" by Spike Jones & The City Slickers, "Teenage Beatnik" by Louis Nye, "A Beatnik Story" by The Expressos, "Meet The Bongo Man" by Johnny O, and "William Butler Yeats On The Third Avenue El" by Lawrence Ferlinghetti.

✨✧ VariousOkeh Jazz ... CD
Okeh/Epic, 1950s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An excellent collection of obscure jazz and R&B instrumental sides from the great Okeh label of the 50s – including some excellent stormers from Chicago!

Other tracks include "Money Is Honey" and "I Want A Big Butter & Egg Man" by Mary Ann McCall; "Dig This Menu Please" and "Red's Mambo", two fantastic R&B tunes from trumpeter Red Rodney; and "Smooth Sailin", "Walkin Home", and "Whispering", all by Arnett Cobb, and included here with some other nice tunes that rank with some of Cobb's best work.

✨✧ VariousStrange But Merry Christmas ... CD
Essential, 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Well, they definitely got the "strange" in the title right here – as the collection is one of the oddest assortment of Holiday tunes we've ever heard – but that's also what makes us like it so much too! We love Christmas music – and while we were raised on the classics, we're always a lot more partial to the weirder corners of the sound of December – the sorts of one-off recordings or overlooked singles that offer up a greatly expanded vision of Christmas in the US, and which reminds us just how big the Holiday music industry is, if you know where to look! The folks who put together this set definitely knew where to look – as they've come up with 20 tracks across a variety of genres – including 60s soul and rock – almost all of which we'd never heard before. Titles include "Please Come Home For Christmas" by Johnny Winter, "Blue Grey Christmas" by King Coleman, "Moisha Got Run Over By A Wheelchair" by 2 Live Jews, "The Real Meaning Of Christmas" by Nino & The Ebb Tides, "El Burrito De Belen" by Lazarito, "Jingle Bells" by Rita Moss, "White Christmas Disco" by Back To Back, "Merry Twistmas" by Milt Patrick, "Give Me Christmas Time" by The Reindeers, "Hawaiian Santa" by The Surfers, "Santa Won't Be Blue This Christmas" by Jimmy Charles, "Christmas In November" by Slim Pickens, "Teenage Santa Claus" by Babs Gonzales, and "Santa Claus Has Fallen In Love" by Swamp Dogg.
