Les McCannInvitation To Openness ... LP
Atlantic, 1972. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $6.99
Wild electric work from Les McCann – an album of free, open sounds that's quite a change from his styles of the 60s – and from most of his other work of the 70s too! Side one features an extended 26 minute track titled "The Lovers" – a slow-building number that has Les on sublime Fender Rhodes, as things build slowly with this really spiritual current that comes from the addition of Yusef Lateef on reeds, Cornell Dupree and David Spinozza on guitar, Corky Hale on harp, and both Bernard Purdie and Alphonse Mouzon on drums! The track is loose, but builds into some great funky moments – almost a keyboard version of electric Miles Davis at the time, but a lot more soulful. And side two continues the heavy keyboard vibe – with a killer remake of Les' classic "Beaux J Poo Poo" and a similar "Poo Pye McGoochie", both with the kind of choppy funky grooves Les laid down with Eddie Harris a few years prior!

Joe TurnerBig Joe Turner's Greatest Hits ... LP
Atlantic, Mid 50s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Some of the greatest work ever from this Kansas City singer – material from that 50s stretch when he was reinventing himself as an R&B giant on Atlantic Records – exploding with new energy, and a fair bit of nasty lyrics too! Cuts include "Honey Hush", "Crawdad Hole", "The Chicken And The Hawk", "Hide & Seek", "Flip Flop And Fly", and lots lots more! LP, Vinyl record album
(80s pressing.)

Joe TurnerBoss Of The Blues – Joe Turner Sings Kansas City Jazz ... LP
Atlantic, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $5.99
A real classic from blues giant Joe Turner – a singer who burst back to the mainstream on 50s Atlantic Records, thanks to a host of R&B singles that burned up the charts – but who here returns to his roots, and lays down a great set of jazzy tunes that get back to his roots in the Kansas City scene of the 30s! The shift is a bit like that Ray Charles made at the end of the 50s on Atlantic – R&B to more of a jazz-based groove – and Joe works here with great help from Pete Brown on alto, Pete Johnson on piano, Joe Newman on trumpet, and Lawrence Brown on trombone. After the raw hard R&B of Joe's bigger hit sides for Atlantic, the album's a compelling change – a reminder that Turner had roots that went much deeper than his rock and roll fame – and a depth of delivery that would keep his career strong, long after some of his 50s R&B contemporaries faded! The mix of modes – R&B and jazz – is a bit like some of the later Ray Charles albums on Atlantic – and tracks include "Low Down Dog", "Roll Em Pete", "Cherry Red", "How Long Blues", and "Morning Glories". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red & green Broadway label pressing. Cover has light wear.)

VariousRoots Of The Blues ... LP
Atlantic, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $23.99
One of the great documents Alan Lomax put together for Atlantic records in the 60s in his Southern Folk Heritage series, featuring ethnographic recordings of rural black music. While the title of this album says it's the "roots" of the blues, there's no shortage of straight up country blues on here, and some great raw documents at that. 13 numbers in all, including "Jim & John","Chevrolet" and "Oree" by Lonnie Young, "The Wild Ox Moan" by Vera Hall, "Been Drinkin' Water Out Of A Hollow Log", "Shake 'Em On Down" and "Freight Train Blues" by Fred McDowell, "All Night Long" by Miles Pratcher, "Levee Camp Reminiscence", "Train Time" and "Drink On Little Girl" by Forest City Joe and "Levee Camp Holler" and "Eighteen Hammers" by Johnny Lee Moore. LP, Vinyl record album
(70s pressing.)
