BarrabasHeart Of The City ... LP
Atco, 1975. Very Good+ ... $6.99
It must have cost Barrabas plenty to make the heart-shaped manhole on the cover of this album – but given the sound of the grooves, the money was well worth it! The set's a fair bit tighter than their earliest work from Spain – but also a great direction for their styles – one ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

BarrabasPower (blue cover) ... LP
RCA, 1973. Sealed ... $11.99
Funky rocking sounds from this hip Spanish group – with a bit of a tribal sound that's pretty sweet! The bass is pretty thundering, the drums are strong, and there's some cool piano and flute in the mix that give the cuts a bit of a Latin flourish. Most cuts have vocals, kind of in a rock-so ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Count BasieBasie's In The Bag ... LP
Brunswick, 1967. Very Good ... $3.99
Count Basie's definitely in the bag on this one – not so much as strong of a jazz bag as in classic years, but instead this very cool blend of soul and funk styles with his Kansas City roots! The record should be thought of more as a hip instrumental album – kind of in the jaunty 60s ... (Jazz, Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Not the famous "Ling Ching Tong" tune of doo wop fame, but a new track by Joe from his Latin disco years.

A great album of bass-heavy 80s groove tracks – and the second release by the oft-overlooked BB&Q Band!
