Alan PriceO Lucky Man! ... LP
Warner, 1973. Very Good Gatefold ... $9.99
A real standout effort from ex-Animal Alan Price – not just because it was the soundtrack for a film in which he starred, but also because it features some of his hippest tracks to date! Price has a great post-60s feel here that's a bit like the territory Georgie Fame was hitting at the time – still with some elements of his rougher, R&B-inspired style of the previous decade – but served up with a newly sophisticated approach to rhythms and vocalizing that really stand out. The whole thing's pretty hard to characterize with a few simple labels, but there's a nice sense of depth and play going on – due partly, no doubt, to the freedom that Price was given with the music by director Lindsay Anderson. Titles include "O Lucky Man", "Pastoral", "Arrival", "Look Over Your Shoulder", "Justice", "My Home Town", "Changes", and "Sell Sell". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ 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 ... LP
Brunswick, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
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".

AvengersEveryone's Gonna Wonder ... CD
Parlophone/RPM (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $14.99
Not the American Avengers punk group from the San Francisco scene of the late 70s – nor the UK television duo of Emma Peel and John Steed – but a totally great late 60s group from New Zealand, and one who've got a beautifully baroque sense of psych to their sound! The group have maybe the same lofty approach that the Bee Gees were using on their own sublime late 60s records, but the sound here is a bit more stripped down, gritty, and garagey – with the higher elements coming both from the way the group harmonizes, and creatively uses conventional small group instrumentation – with these deft turns of instrumental phrase that illuminate the darker corners of the songs in a really great way. The package brings together a host of rare singles, mostly recorded in New Zealand by the Parlophone label – and also even includes some very cool radio spots too! 27 tracks in all – with titles that include "Days Of Pearly Spencer", "Love Hate Revenge", "Midnight Visitation", "Sunshine Lady", "Everyone's Gonna Wonder", "Take My Hand", "Night In The City", "Sally", "September Winds", "What Price Love", "Flower Girl", "Out Of Sight Out Of Mind", "Love Is A One Way Ticket", "Fisherwoman", "Night Time", and "Waterpipe".

BreakwaterBreakwater/Splashdown (with bonus track) ... CD
Expansion (UK), 1978/1980. New Copy ... $14.99
A landmark pairing of records from a group who only ever gave the world two albums – but who've gone on to have a huge influence over the years! The first album, the 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". Splashdown has a perfect blend of jazz and soul that only a few groups in the 70s really got right – maybe Pleasure, or The Blackbyrds – and most certainly Breakwater, who were one of the reigning champions of the scene! Rhythms are often upbeat, but not in a disco or club-oriented way – and the instrumentation is tight, but never slick or smooth – always nicely funky with a nice little crackle, even on the mellow cuts – in a way that's opened up this album to new audiences for many years. This set's got a nice bit of moog that wasn't on the group's first – used almost in Mizell-like to further enhance the sound – and titles include the classics "Say You Love Me Girl", "Let Love In", "Time", and "The One In My Dreams". CD also features a bonus track – "No Limit (ext version)". CD

Clifford BrownMemorial Album (Blue Note) ... LP
Blue Note, 1953. Very Good ... $129.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono 63rd Street pressing, with deep groove, RVG & 9M etch, and ear. Vinyl has a mark that clicks on "Wail Bait". Cover has some edge wear, with a small name in pen and a vintage price sticker on back.)

✨✧ Frank FosterSoul Outing! ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1966. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Stormin! Tenorist Frank Foster is best known to the world for his years and years of work with Count Basie, but take it from us – his solo albums from the late 60's are waaaay better than his Basie work, and they're also some of our favorite jazz sides of all time! This rare album features Foster with a groovy group that includes Virgil Jones on trumpet, Pat Rebillot on piano, Billy Butler on guitar, and the great Alan Dawson on drums and congas. The tracks are all nice and long, and they have a sinister dirty funky groove that sounds very very tasty on CD! Titles include "Skankaroony", "Show The Good Side", "While The City Sleeps", and "Chiquito Loco". One that you'll almost never see on vinyl, and nicely priced on CD! CD
