Lucky ThompsonLucky Thompson Meets Oscar Pettiford Vols 1 & 2 ... CD
ABC/Fresh Sound (Spain), 1956. Used ... $9.99
Really standout material from Lucky Thompson – an excellent set of small group sessions that features Oscar Pettiford on bass! The format's a bit like the small combo mode that Americans from larger touring ensembles were recording in Europe – a bit more laidback, and with more solo focus for players who were sometimes eclipsed in larger groups. The record has Lucky playing with Pettiford in a number of very small group settings – mostly drum-less trios, with either Hank Jones or Don Abney on piano, and bits of guitar from Skeeter best, and some trombone from Jimmy Cleveland – working under the unusual date name of "Jim Whatsmyname" on trombone. The material is quite spare and beautiful, an especially brilliant showcase for the talents of both players – who were sometimes buried more in larger group recordings at the time. CD features the material from both volumes 1 and 2 of the ABC albums – with 16 titles that include "Tricotism", "Bo Bi My Boy", "Op Meets It", "Tom Kattin", "Good Luck", "Mister Man", "Once There Was", "The Plain But The Simple Truth", and "Translation".

Three SoundsBlack Orchid ... CD
Blue Note, 1962. Used ... $18.99
Maybe the most evocative title of all the Three Sounds albums of the 60s – and one that really gets at the dark beauty of the entire record! By the time of this release (the group's 7th for Blue Note), Gene Harris and the trio had really come into their own – and were moving past simple soul jazz modes into this wonderful blend of grooviness and lyricism – still very much beholden to Harris' rhythmic approach to the keys, but also filled with loads of complicated lines, especially from the group's wonderful bassist Andrew Simpkins – whose round tone is especially great on the mellow numbers. Titles include Randy Weston's "Saucer Eyes" , Neal Hefti's "Black Orchid", and the tracks "Don't Go Don't Go" and "Oh Well Oh Well", both originals by Gene Harris. CD reissue adds in 6 bonus tracks – including "You Dig It", "Nature Boy", "Theme From M Squad", "Back Home", and "Azule Serape". CD

✨✧ Toasters & OthersChristmas Ska (colored vinyl pressing) ... LP
Jump Up, 1997. New Copy ... $13.99
A pretty wonderful holiday album from NYC ska revivalists The Toasters – and a toasty warm, cheerful and genuine gift! Always one of the finer and most genuine combos in the US ska scene, and especially built to last, there's no better third wave ska scene survivors to pull off a winning Christmas themed LP, and sure enough, this one's a real charmer, easily avoiding 90s era ska cliches and just as easily skirted holiday theme hokeyness. Sweet stuff! Includes "Happy Christmas", "Sleigh Ride", "Winter Wonderland", "Little Drummer Boy", "Rudy Christmas A Jail", "War Is Over", "Christmas Time Again", "Blue Christmas" and more by The Toasters plus "Did You Buy What I Bought" and "Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer" by the Buford O'Sullivan Experience, "Joy To The World" by New York Ska Ensemble and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Originally on CD in the 1997 for the Japanese market – finally issued domestically, on limited edition colored vinyl!)

Armando TrovajoliTreasure Of San Gennaro ... LP
Buddah, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $11.99
An early international success for Italian maestro Armando Trovajoli – the very groovy soundtrack to Operazione San Gennaro – also issued here in the states as The Treasure Of San Gennaro! The soundtrack is a really great mix of modes – as half the tracks are groovy, swinging, and mod – while the other half have a more Italian comedy sort of style, one that borrows trademark Mediterranean touches, but uses them sparingly, without any sort of hoke at all. Instrumentation includes some lively mandolin and flute on these Italian-styled numbers – and some cooler organ, keyboards, and jazzier bits on the groovier tracks. I Marc 4 also had a hand in some of the instrumentation – and titles include "Treasure Of San Gennaro", "Love For Two", "Poor Boy Jack", "Maggie's Theme", "The Miracle", "Esacpe", and "Treasure Of San Gennaro".

Dana ValeryNot The Flower But The Root (with bonus track) ... CD
Brunswick/Solid (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $9.99
A tremendous bit of Chicago soul – from a very unlikely source! Dana Valery's an Italian singer by birth, and spent some time on the London scene in the 60s – but she soars out here in the best sort of Windy City groove we've come to love from the Brunswick label – a sound and style to rival that of labelmates like Barbara Acklin or Jackie, but with a different sort of twist as well! Given Dana's pedigree, the set's almost her own Chicago-styled version of Dusty Springfield's Memphis recordings – as Valery works with killer Brunswick backings put together by Tom Tom Washington and Sonny Sanders – set to that sublime production that only Carl Davis and Willie Henderson could provide – a studio team who really help pull out the best grooves and deepest soul of all the cuts in the set. Added to the mix is the fact that a host of tracks were penned by Eugene Record – making for a mighty sweet set with titles that include "Lady Lady Lady", "I'm Gonna Pay You Back", "Have You Seen Him", "Oh Boy", "The Fountain", and "This Love Is Real".

Caetano VelosoForeign Sound ... CD
Nonesuch, 2004. Used ... $6.99
A landmark album for Caetano Veloso – a full set of tracks sung in English, as beautifully done as we ever could have hoped! The arrangements are really fresh – in a style that makes the album far more than just a set of standards – and instead gives it the edgey approach of some of Caetano's best recent work. The set was co-produced by Jacques Morelenbaum, and has a range of instrumental approaches that shifts to fit the mood of each new track – and given that the work on the set runs from tunes by Cole Porter to Nat King Cole, Nirvana, David Byrne, Arto Lindsay, Elvis Presley, Stevie Wonder, and Bob Dylan – you can imagine the changing moods at work! Titles include "So In Love", "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes", "Diana", "Manhattan", "Nothing But Flowers", "Cry Me A River", "Nature Boy", "Jamaica Farewell", "If It's Magic", "Detached", "Blue Skies", and "Something Good". Loads of tracks, too – 22 in all – and packaged beautifully! CD
(Includes slipcase. Barcode has a cutout mark.)

WailersWailing Wailers ... LP
Studio One (UK), Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99 24.99
Landmark work from The Wailers – the early trio version of the group, with a legendary lineup that includes Peter Tosh and Bob Marley! The style here is different than both Tosh and Marley's music to come, but the sound is already totally top-shelf – a wickedly soulful blend of American soul harmonies and Jamaican rhythms – very well-crafted, mostly with Bob in the lead, but often with the kind of vocal interplay that makes all three members of the group shine in the spotlight, including third member Neville Livingston! The set's an early Studio One treasure, and is proof that Clement Dodd was already on the right track – and musical backing is by The Soul Brothers and Skatalites. Titles include "Lonesome Feelings", "I Need You", "Put It On", "Rude Boy", "Love & Affection", "Simmer Down", "I'm Still Waiting", and "Ten Commandments Of Love". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Robin WardWonderful Summer (mono & stereo mixes – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Dot/Universal (Japan), 1964. New Copy ... $21.99
Great girl pop from Robin Ward – a singer who scored big with the album's title track, and holds onto a really dreamy sound all the way through this rare album from the 60s! Arrangements are by pop maestros George Tipton and Perry Botkin – and the music is tightly focused in a mix of gentle groove and light strings, with Robin's vocals right up front in the mix – often recorded with a bit of echo, which really underscores the more melancholy elements in the tunes! The set features a few original numbers – penned by Botkin and Gil Garfield – including "Wonderful Summer", "Dream Boy", and "Johnny Come & Get Me" – and other tunes include "Today I Fell In Love", "Teach Me Tonight", "Why Don't You Believe Me", and "I Will Love You". CD features the full album in mono and stereo – plus great bonus tracks that include "Wishing", "Winter's Here", "Bobby", and "In His Car" – all by Botkin and Garfield. CD
(SHM-CD pressing!)

✨✧ Walt WeiskopfWay You Say It ... CD
Posi tone, 2016. New Copy ... $11.99 15.99
Tenor, vibes, and organ – a great combination here in the hands of leader Walt Weiskopf, who also wrote most of the tracks on the record! Walt's records have been some of our favorites on the Posi-Tone label in recent years – and here, he works with label heavyweights Behn Gillece on vibes and Brian Charette on Hammond – with drums from Steve Fidyk in a beautifully balanced quartet! Charette's got these long-flowing lines on the Hammond that are both melodically matched and periodically punctuated by Gillece on vibes – with sounds that can brew slowly together, or really take off – as Walt blows these nicely-edged solos throughout! Titles include "Dreamlining", "Separation", "Coffee & Scones", "Envisioned", "Invisible Sun", "Manny Boy", and "The Way You Say It". CD

Lenny WelchTaste Of Honey – The Complete Cadence Recordings 1959 to 1964 ... CD
Cadence/Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
The complete Cadence recordings of the wonderful Lenny Welch – a singer with a voice that's as smooth as butter, and a key link between some of the more pop-oriented vocalists of the 50s, and the new generation of 60s "icemen" like Jerry Butler and Chuck Jackson! Like those two, Lenny's got a great way of putting over a sad tune with just the right balance of emotion – never too overdone, nor self-indulgent – but perfectly poised with a nicely mature quality. And Lenny's also a great singer on a more upbeat number – a surprisingly rocking vocalist when he wants to be, as you'll hear on some of the more groove-oriented titles on this set – tunes that have a classy early soul approach, one that's almost a bit like uptown soul of a few years later. The package features 20 tracks in all – singles recorded by Welch for Cadence, with titles that include "Changa Rock", "Mama Don't You Hit That Boy", "You Don't Know Me", "I Need Someone", "Darlin", "Three Handed Woman", "You Can Have Her", "Father Sebastian", "If You See My Love", "Are You Sincere", and "Congratulations Baby".

Mary WellsVintage Stock ... LP
Motown, 1966. Sealed ... $24.99
A very strong compilation of some of the best soul that Mary Wells recorded for Motown – and probably her only real album for the label. Although issued in 1966, the material hearkens from earlier days at Motown – and titles include "The One Who Really Loves You", "Two Lovers", "Honey Boy", "My Guy", and "You Beat Me To The Punch". Great for late night listening on a summer night through an open window! LP, Vinyl record album

Andrew WhiteWeekend At The One Step Series Vol 3 – Have Band Will Travel ... LP
Andrew's Music, 1979. New Copy ... $11.99 15.99
A set recorded as part of Andrew White's One Step series – but one that also has a different feel than some of the others – as it features some shorter tunes that have a bit more straightforward approach than some of his other work! The group on the album features Blackbyrds Keith Killgo on drums and Kevin Toney on piano, plus excellent bass work by the great Steve Novosel – whose round warm tones really make the album groove! Side one features sweet takes on Coltrane tunes "Naima" and "Central Park West" – plus "What's New", "Mahogany", and "Rim Shot". Side two stretches out with the classic "Big Nick" – then offers White's own "Theme Signature" and "Superfly Disco Boy". LP, Vinyl record album

WhoQuadrophenia ... LP
Track/MCA, 1973. Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $8.99
A record we'd never part with – and easily our favorite album ever from The Who! Quadrophenia represents the group at its peak from all perspectives – songwriting, performance, and even studio presence – as the album's got a sonic sensibility that few other albums of the time can match! The set's a concept record – a story, like Tommy – yet it remains incredibly lean, without any overcluttered rock opera feel – so much so that most tunes stand mightily on their own, but also have a dense sense of texture when taken together as part of the double-length album. And we'll also say that the record's one of the few extended sets we always end up breezing through from start to finish – almost surprised by the time it comes to a close – and often hitting repeat to hear the whole thing over again! Titles include "I Am The Sea", "The Real Me", "Cut My Hair", "The Punk & The Godfather", "Sea & Sand", "5:15", "Bell Boy", "Love Rein O'Er Me", and "Is It In My Head". LP, Vinyl record album
(Brown label pressing – missing booklet. Cover has a cutout hole.)

✨✧ Deniece WilliamsBlack Butterfly – The Essential Niecy ... CD
Columbia/Big Break (UK), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99
A treasure trove of work from Deniece Williams – one of the coolest, classiest soul singers to hit the mainstream at the end of the 70s! Williams has roots that go deep in the Chicago scene – including young work under the name of Deniece Chandler – but this set picks off from the time when she hit Columbia Records as a full-formed adult soul singer – one of the freshest talents of her generation – with an ability to hit some of the spiritual currents of Minnie Riperton, and some of the grooves you might expect from Cheryl Lynn! Both those sides and many more are featured here – in a 35 track set that's overflowing with gems, produced by soul music legends who include Maurice White, Charles Stepney, Thom Bell, Ray Parker Jr, George Duke, Jeff Lorber, and others. Titles include "Baby Baby My Love's All For You", "What Two Can Do", "I Can't Wait", "I'm So Proud", "Black Butterfly", "Silly", "God Is Amazing", "Free", "Healing", "All I Need", "Waiting By The Hotline", "Let's Hear It For The Boy (12" version)", "Do What You Feel (single version)", "When Love Comes Calling", "I've Got The Next Dance (12" version)", "That's What Friends Are For", and "It's Gonna Take A Miracle". Also features duets with Johnny Mathis on "Without Us", "Love Won't Let Me Wait", "Too Much Too Little Too Late", and "You're All I Need To Get By". CD

Deniece WilliamsGonna Take A Miracle – The Best Of Deniece Williams ... CD
Columbia, Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... $3.99
An amazing evolution in sound – a set that brings together the shifting styles of Deniece Williams during her Columbia years – a stretch when she started out as a righteous-voiced singer with an almost Minnie Riperton-like sound, then moved into much more chart-topping territory for the early 80s! Throughout it all, though, Williams' vocals remained top-shelf – trained not only through years of gospel singing, but also through an early music career that had her recording indie singles in Chicago, and working as a backup singer for Stevie Wonder. The package does a good job of bringing together most of Williams' significant cuts from the Columbia years – 16 tracks that include "Free", "I Found Love", "Cause You Love Me Baby", "That's What Friends Are For", "God Is Amazing", "Baby Baby My Love's All For You", "When Love Comes Calling", "If You Don't Believe", "Silly", "It's Gonna Take A Miracle", "Waiting", "Do What You Feel", "Black Butterfly", "Too Much Too Little Too Late", and "Let's Hear It For The Boy".

✨✧ Deniece WilliamsSong Bird ... LP
Columbia, 1977. Very Good ... $2.99
A pretty sweet late 70s set from Deniece Williams – produced by Maurice White of Earth Wind & Fire – and it sounds like it! The set ranges from catchy, crossover ready funky soul sweetened ever more by Deniece's amazing voice, to more stripped down and intimate numbers. There's a couple of stylistic detours, one bright eyed gospel soul tune and a more grandly furnished ballad or two – but for the most part it's a wonderfully produced late 70s funky soul set that takes flight even higher thanks to Deniece's incredible range! Titles include "Time", "We Have Love For You", "Season", "Be Good To Me", "The Paper", "Boy I Left Behind", "Baby, Baby My Love's All For You" and "God Is Amazing". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the lyric sleeve.)
