Capitol, 1959/1960. Very Good+ ... $1.99
An important album by Nat King Cole – one that presented him in a live format, working in front of a very relaxed crowd at the Sands, expressing himself in a way that's quite different than some of his studio albums.

Strata East, 1974. Used Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
A beautiful jazzy classic, and perhaps Gil Scott-Heron's most perfectly realized album ever!

United Artists, 1959. Very Good+ ... $28.99
Sparkling work from singer Irene Kral – and possibly the best album she ever cut!
