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!

Atlantic, 1999. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $26.99 29.99

The guests seem to keep things in all the right spirit – never too much in a rock crossover mode – and titles include "Blow Wind Blow", "Every Day I Have The Blues", "That's All Right", "Bright Lights Big City", "Gonna Shoot You Right Down", "Ludella", "Goin away Baby", and "Don't Start Me To Talkin".

✨✧ 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

Joe TurnerBoss Of The Blues – Joe Turner Sings Kansas City Jazz ... LP
Atlantic, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $5.99
Joe Turner returns to his roots, and lays down a fairly straight set of bluesy tunes from the old days of the Kansas City scene – done with a small jazz combo that includes work by Joe Newman, Lawrence Brown, Pete Brown, and Pete Johnson! 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.

Little Esther (Esther Phillips)Memory Lane – The Best Songs Little Esther Ever Recorded ... CD
King, Mid 50s. New Copy ... $7.99 9.99
Fantastic early work from Esther Phillips – recording here as a young girl, under the name of Little Esther – but with a voice that's every bit as great as on her 60s recordings for Atlantic, or her 70s hits on the CTI/Kudu label! The music is a mixture of R&B and blues – the latter infused with some larger charts that already show the kind of class that would set Esther apart from so many of her contemporaries – and make the vocalist a key bridge between generations during the years that soul music would search for more sophisticated sounds. The vibe is very much in the best styles that Lavern Baker was recording for Atlantic – with a similar richness in modes – and titles include "Sweet Lips", "The Storm", "I Paid My Dues", "Heart To Heart", "Cherry Wine", "Aged & Mellow", "The Deacon Moves In", "Tell Him That I Need Him", "I'll Be There", "Street Lights", "Mainliner", and "Ring A Ding Doo".

✨✧ John MayallBlues From Laurel Canyon ... LP
London, 1968. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
British blues meets LA's Laurel Canyon – a trans-Atlantic (or is it Pacific?) blend that makes for one of John Mayall's most compelling albums of the 60s! The album was recorded after the breakup of the Blues Breakers group – but it still features strong support from Mick Taylor on guitar – a key factor in the previous combo's sound, given almost even more space here to stand out front with Mayall. Other instrumentation includes bass and drums, plus a bit of tablas – and the overall approach is a lot more spare than other Blues Breakers sets – still bluesy in approach, but with some definite freer-thinking moments too, picked up from a trip to Laurel Canyon that was Mayall's inspiration for the set. Titles include "Walking On Sunset", "Vacation", "Ready To Ride", "Medicine Man", "Miss James", "The Bear", "First Time Alone", and "Fly Tomorrow". (Rock, Blues) LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing. Cover has light wear and a small center split on the bottom seam.)
