AnimalsAnimals No 2 (10-inch EP) ... LP
EMI/Abkco, Mid 60s. Near Mint- (reissue)... $16.99
A very cool early 10" album from The Animals – the group's second in this format, and never originally issued in the US! The group are at their young, gritty best here – with lots of bluesy currents in the music, thanks to Alan Price on Hammond – topped with soulful vocals from the mighty Eric Burdon, who never fails to blow us away. Titles include the great "I'm Mad Again", plus "Bury My Body", "She Said Yeah", and "I'm In Love". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bangor Flying CircusBangor Flying Circus ... LP
ABC/Dunhill, 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An overlooked jazz rock combo from the late 60s US scene – a group with echoes of Cream and Soft Machine, but who also have a bit rootsier feel overall! The core instrumentation of the trio is organ, drums, and guitar – used in ways that stretch out and soar with jazzy inflections at times, but an overall groove that's much more in a progressive rock vein. All tracks have vocals from singers David Wolinski and Alan DeCarlo, often brought together in a slightly harmonized mode that reminds us a bit of some of the Chicano rock from the time, in a way that gives the album a bit more of a soulful undercurrent than you'd expect. Titles include "In The Woods", "Violent Man", "Come On People", "Ode To Sadness", "Concerto For Clouds", "A Change In Our Lives", "Mama Don't You Know", and a totally great instrumental jam on "Norwegian Wood" – done with scatting vocals over the organ, guitar, and heavy drums – and really worth the price of the record alone!

✨✧ Walter Bishop JrCoral Keys ... CD
Black Jazz/Snow Dog (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The keys are coral, and the sound is sublime – one of the greatest albums ever from pianist Walter Bishop Jr, and proof that he can really stretch out, given the right setting! The piano here is all acoustic, but there's an almost-electric vibe to the date – long, open tracks that sway and swell with some great spiritual energy – made even more wonderful by work from reedman Harold Vick, who plays tenor, flute, and soprano sax on the record – and makes it one of his best recordings ever! The reedwork alone is worth the price of admission – but the rhythms are also great too – a mix of soulful, modal, and some slight funky bits – handled by Reggie Johnson on bass, and either Idris Muhammad or Alan Benger on drums. Woody Shaw plays trumpet on some cuts, too – and titles include "Coral Keys", "Soul Turn Around", "Freedom Suite", "Track Down", "Waltz For Zweetie", and "Three Loves". CD
(Remastered with updated artwork and new liner notes.)

ArtisticsWhat Happened ... CD
Brunswick, 1969. New Copy ... $6.99 11.99
A stunning early set from The Artistics – and exactly the kind of record that shows why they were one of the best Chicago soul groups at the end of the 60s! The harmonies are wonderful – smooth, but with a rough undercurrent too – balanced at a level that few groups could touch at the time, save maybe The Four Tops! Yet the style's way different than Motown, too – very much in that loping Brunswick soul style of the time, which means there's all these great grooves that really keep things going – even at mellower moments. Eugene Record produced and wrote most of the tracks – and titles include "What Happened", "Walking Tall", "With These Hands", "Why Did She Have To Leave Me", "When I'm Not Around", "Yesterday's Girl", and "Price Of Love".

Clifford BrownMemorial Album (Blue Note) ... LP
Blue Note, 1953. Near Mint- ... $11.99
Clifford Brown only recorded a handful of sides for Blue Note – but all of the best ones are included in this excellent album – a full length set that culls together Brown's material from the 10" years, issued as a memorial to his early death in 1956! Side one features Brown with the modernist Gigi Gryce on flute and alto sax – plus Charlie Rouse on tenor, John Lewis on piano, Percy Heath on bass, and Art Blakey on drums – a lineup that has a strong sense of soul, balanced with a dose of modernism – on titles that include the classic "Hymn to the Orient" – worth the price of the album alone – plus "Easy Living", "Cherokee", "Wail Bait", and "Minor Mood". Side two features an equally sharp group – with Lou Donaldson on some excellent alto, and the great Elmo Hope on piano – on titles that include "Brownie Speaks", "De Dah", "Cookin", "You Go To My Head", and "Carving The Rock".

✨✧ BreakwaterBreakwater ... CD
Arista (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A landmark set from a group who only ever gave the world two albums – but who've gone on to have a huge influence over the years! This initial offering from Breakwater is a masterful blend of jazzy fusion and mellower soul – a sound sifted together so perfectly, it really tops the rest of the combo's contemporaries – hitting a careful balance that never gets too cheesy or commercial, and which still manages to glow as strongly into the 21st century as it did when first released back in the day! The sound here is sublime – warm, but never sleepy – jazzy, but never cliched – and mixed in such a way that the vocals and instruments almost get center stage in the spotlight without trying to crowd one another out. Titles include the incredible "Work it Out" – worth the price of the record alone – plus "No Limit", "That's Not What We Came Here For", "Free Yourself", "Do It Till The Fluid Gets Hot", and "Feel Your Way". CD
(Part of the great AOR City series from Japan!)

✨✧ Dom Salvador & AbolicaoSom, Sangue E Raca ... CD
Columbia/Sony (Brazil), 1971. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A landmark in Brazilian funk! This album mixes the hard jazzy piano of Dom Salvador with the funky samba backings of the group Abolicao – and the result is one of the most mindblowing batches of cross-cultural grooves you'll ever hear! The record's a great precursor to later Brazilian funk albums – like those by Banda Black Rio or Unaio Black – but the influence of Salvador's piano gives the record a jazzier edge, one that mixes extremely well with the wide range of percussion on the set. Titles include "Som, Sangue e Raca", "Guanabar", "Moeda, Reza e Cor", and "Samba Do Malandrinho". Very nice! CD
(Note: CD is missing back artwork in case – and is priced accordingly.)

✨✧ Alan SkidmoreOnce Upon A Time ... CD
Dream/Vocalion (UK), 1970. Used ... Out Of Stock
Spiralling, soaring work from the Alan Skidmore Quintet – a group led by one of the greatest British tenor talents at the end of the 60s! Skidmore's name turns up often in some of the larger ensemble sessions from the period, but this album's one of his few smaller group outings – and it's a real treasure that we'd rank with the most free-thinking jazz on Deram as the time. Skidmore's joined in the group by an all-star lineup that includes Kenny Wheeler on flugelhorn, John Taylor on piano, Harry Miller on bass, and Tony Oxley on drums – and all players are working here in a cohesive, vibrant style that's quite different than some of the freer, more "out" work of later years. There's a real love of color and tone on the session – and the tunes unfold with a soaring quality that's really tremendous – one that's rarely too free, and which explores the shades and hues that were showing up in some of the best British jazz of the time. For one point of reference, we might compare the record to the depth of the best Michael Garrick sessions of the late 60s – but there's also a bit more straightforward quality here that we really love. Titles include "Old San Juan", "Once Upon A Time", "The Yolk", "Free For Al", and "Image". CD

✨✧ VariousCome Spy With Us – The Secret Agent Songbook ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Seminal spy sounds from the 60s – a treasure trove of spy-themed tunes, and one that features loads of material you might not hear otherwise! The set doesn't feature the big hits from the James Bond films, and instead includes all the great little records that sprung up in the wake of those movies – cool jazz, vocal, and instrumental records that sometimes feature weird reworkings of more famous soundtrack numbers, sometimes lesser-known cuts from b-grade films, and sometimes fresh new spy numbers on their own! The style ranges from groovy guitar numbers to blaring jazzy tracks to slinky steppers that find a very cool balance between suspense and swing. Titles include "Dr Goldfoot & The Bikini Machine" by The Supremes, "The Last Of The Secret Agents" by Nancy Sinatra, "Theme From Danger Man" by Red Price, "A Man Alone" by John Barry, "Deadlier Than The Male" by The Walker Brothers, "Burke's Law" by Wynton Kelly, "We Should've" by Cleo Laine, "Our Man Flint" by Billy Strange, "Theme From Where The Spies Are" by Jimmy Smith, "The Liquidator" by Shirley Bassey, "I Spy" by Roland Shaw, "Come Spy With Me" by Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, and "High Wire" by Brian Fahey.
