✨✧ Chuck BerryChuck Berry Is On Top ... LP
Chess, 1959. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
Chuck Berry is definitely on top with this classic Chess Records set – an album that shows that Berry always had a lot more to offer than some of his oldies rocker contemporaries! Sure, there's a few hits here, but the overall quality of the music is more in the mode of Chess blues of the time – lots of raw backings that are as heavy on piano lines and romping rhythms as they are Chuck's own searing lead guitar – a sound that definitely sets the tone for generations to come, and which is always heard best here in its early hoke-free setting. The whole album's wonderful, and even familiar hits sound newly brilliant in this context – a smoking lineup that includes "Jo Jo Gunne", "Around & Around", "Hey Pedro", "Anthony Boy", "Sweet Little Rock & Roller", "Almost Grown", "Roll Over Beethoven", and "Maybellene". LP, Vinyl record album
(80s Original Chess Masters pressing.)

✨✧ Chris ClarkSoul Sounds (with bonus track) ... CD
Motown/Reel Music, 1967. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A great Motown album from Chris Clark – one of the few white singers ever signed to the label, and a great vocalist at that! Chris has a sound that's quite unique – halfway between Motown soul and some of the soul-inspired pop of the time – particularly that of UK singers like Dusty Springfield and some of her generation. There's a proud, bold sound here – all Motown in the backings, and often done with the kind of tightly-stepping grooves that have made some of Chris' singles big ones on the Northern Soul scene over the years. Titles include "I Want To Go Back There Again", "Day By Day Or Never", "From Head To Toe", "Sweeter As The Days Go By", "Do Right Baby Do Right", "Born To Love You Baby", "Love's Gone Bad", and "Whisper You Love Me Boy". CD also features a previously unreleased alternate stereo mix of "Do Right Baby Do Right" – and the overall package is amazing – with a 20 page full-color booklet that includes long notes on Clark's career, vintage photos, and even session details for the album!

✨✧ Tal FarlowTal Farlow Album ... LP
Verve, 1954/1955. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
Tremendous guitar work from the great Tal Farlow – easily one of our favorite jazz guitarists ever, and a player with a wonderful sense of tone and timing! This early album has Tal declaring himself loudly and firmly – using a style that's got some slightly raspy edges, and which is a nice change from some of the too-clean modes of other 50s guitarists. The album features a core original 10" album session with a group that includes Oscar Pettiford on bass, Barry Galbraith on guitar, and Joe Morello on drums – plus 4 more tracks from a trio with Red Mitchell on bass and Claude Williamson on piano. Titles include "This Is Always", "Tea For Two", "Blues In The Closet", "Gibson Boy", "My Old Flame", "Is There Somebody Lovelier Than You", "Everything I've Got", "You And The Night and Music", "Love Nest", and "When The Wind And The Rain Are In Your Hair". LP, Vinyl record album
(Nice Japanese pressing, with obi and insert. Vinyl has some marks that click.)

✨✧ VelvelettesVelvelettes – The Motown Anthology ... CD
Motown (UK), 1960s. Used 2CD ... Just Sold Out!
An incredible treasure trove of Motown soul – more recordings than we could have imagined by the legendary Velvelettes! The group were one of Motown's first girl groups in the early days – and although they never broke as big as The Supremes or Vandellas, they've got a great sound that's almost a rougher take on the female sound of Detroit at the time. The Velvelettes are best remembered by a few key singles, but as this set shows, the girls recorded an incredible amount of music for Motown – working surprisingly often in the studios during the mid 60s, on a large number of tracks that have never been released! This extremely well-done collection features a whopping 48 titles in all – including 5 numbers from a rare live show from 1964, 4 rare French singles, and a huge batch of previously unissued tunes, alternate mixes, and obscure singles! Titles include "Selfish Lover", "Should I Tell Them", "Needle In A Haystack", "Let You Live A Little Bit Longer (alternate)", "I'm The Exception To The Rule", "Why Must You Go", "The Boy From Crosstown (alternate)", "He's The One", "Ain't No Place Like Motown", "Your Heart Belongs To Me", "Seasons Greetings From Motown 1966", "The Monkey Time", and "Le Hokey Pokey".

✨✧ Ruby AndrewsJust Loving You – The Zodiac Sessions 1967 to 1973 ... CD
Grapevine (UK), 1960s/1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A masterful set of recordings from Chicago soul chanteuse Ruby Andrews – tunes she cut for Zodiac Records between 1967 and 1973! Ruby could handle any soul style her producers threw her way, be it driving dancefloor stompers or pure torch balladry, but she had a way of infusing everything she did with a great sense of emotion. It's the same kind of emotive, deep soul sweep that was buried so heavily in Curtis Mayfield's recordings – perhaps it's the Chicago factor! Whatever the case, this is wonderful stuff – essential to anyone interested in the best late 60s/early 70s female soul! 28 tracks in all: "Uh! Uh! Boy, That's A No No", "Help Yourself (Lover)", "Whatever It Takes To Please You", "Tit For Tat", "Good N' Plenty", "Can You Get Away", "Let's Get A Groove Going On", "Just Loving You", "The Love I Need", "Come To Me", "Wonderful Night", "Away From The Crowd", "Didn't I Fool You", "You Ole Boo Boo You", "All The Way" and lots more.

✨✧ Aquarian DreamFantasy/Chance To Dance ... CD
Elektra/Expansion (UK), 1977/1978. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pair of great albums from this Norman Connors side project! Fantasy is righteous soul, but with a wicked groove too – a killer set from Aquarian Dream, made even better by some great Norman Connors production! In a way, Aquarian Dream were to Norman Connors what Ramp were to Roy Ayers – in that the group wasn't really that dominated by Connors, but they did benefit a lot from his groundbreaking work in the jazz funk field – getting a level of sophistication in their sound that's really wonderful – and mixed with almost equal parts soul, funk, and jazz in the instrumentation! Vocals are often in a harmony mode – again in the manner of Ramp – and there's a classy yet cosmic sound to the record that we totally love. (And there's also one more Roy Ayers-like connection in the vocal department – since the group features Sylvia Striplin, who later recorded for Roy's Uno Melodic label!) The album's got a number of nice groovers with a strongly off-beat sound – and titles include "Friends", "It Ain't Whatcha Say", "You're A Star", "Play It For Me", and "Gentle Thoughts". On Chance To Dance, Aquarian Dream step out on their own – working for the first time without Norman Connors at the helm, but in a groove that's still plenty nice! The clubby aspects of the group's sound are played up by arranger/producer Jeff Lane – who'd worked often with BT Express and Brass Construction, and finds a similar groove here with Aquarian Dream – one in which all the best elements are focused strongly on the rhythms! A few mellower moments round things out nicely with a jazzy vibe – and titles include "Disco Juice", "Gettum Up And Dance", "Big Boy", "Why Can't We Do It Like We Used To", "Dirty Trick", and "Love Slave".

✨✧ Average White BandAverage White Band ... LP
Atlantic, 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
AWB's first for Atlantic – and a nice slice of funk that proves that they can mix it up with the best groups of the 70s! The record's got plenty of sweet electric keyboards over smooth funky basslines – and as the years go by, the band's white boy vocals don't sound nearly as bad as we remember them. And besides, when they play their instruments so nicely – how can you hold the singing against them? Includes the killer classic "Pick Up The Pieces", sampled more times than we can remember – plus "You Got It", "Just Wanna Love You Tonight", "Person To Person", and a nice remake of the Isley Brothers' "Work To Do". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve.)

✨✧ George BensonShape Of Things To Come ... CD
CTI/A&M, 1968. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Excellent funky George Benson – mellow grooving, never too over the top, but with a fantastic mellow groove that really points the way ahead to the CTI sound of the 70s! We'd dare say that this is Benson's best from the early solo years of the late 60s – and the record's got a groove that's at once complicated and appealingly funky! No wonder too, since he's got Idris Muhammad helping him out, working under his pre-conversion name of Leo Morris, plus Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, Richard Davis, Johnny Pacheco and others. Titles include "Footin It", "Face It Boy, It's Over", "Shape Of Things To Come", and "Shape Of Things That Are & Were". CD

✨✧ Bootsy's Rubber BandThis Boot Is Made For Fonk-N ... LP
Warner, 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Bootsy's still keeping the P-Funk flag flying high at the end of the 70s – arguably stepping out here with a sound that's got more of the Parliafunkadelicment elements intact than some of George Clinton's other spinoff groups! The tracks are long, and plenty jamming – still with plenty of star power from Bootsy upfront – but also some wonderfully tight rhythms from the rest of the players too, all in that mix of hard-rolling, and light-tripping funk modes that still set the P-Funk groups apart from the pack of imitators who'd cropped up in their wake! Titles include "Jam Fan (Hot)", "Bootsy Get Live", "Under The Influence Of A Groove", "Chug-A-Lug", "Oh Boy", and "Shejam". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes inner sleeve & booklet. Cover has light wear & a crease.)

✨✧ David BowieBowie At The BEEB – The Best Of The BBC Radio Sessions 1968 to 1972 (4LP set – 180 gram pressing) ... LP
Parlophone, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 4 LPs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great addition to the David Bowie catalog – a set of key recordings for the BBC that stand strongly with the rest of his studio material from the time! The BBC format was always handled in a relaxed, but professionally-done way – which means that the quality of the recordings is excellent, and Bowie's able to provide slight variations on the tunes, often in ways that reflect the intimacy and charm of the radio studio, in contrast to his bigger concert performances of the time. There's also some nice surprise tracks here – such as his versions of "I'm Waiting For The Man", "White Light/White Heat", and "Amsterdam" – alongside tracks that include "Almost Grown", "Looking For A Friend", "Eight Line Poem", and "Bombers" – and classics that include "Wild Eyed Boy From Freecloud", "The Supermen", "Changes", "Oh You Pretty Things", "Andy Warhol", "Ziggy Stardust", "Queen Bitch", "Good Knows I'm Good", "Width Of A Circle", "Rock N Roll Suicide", and "Space Oddity". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Roy BrownGood Rockin Brown – The King & Deluxe Acetate Sides ... CD
King/Ace (UK), 1947. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Some of the greatest work from the early years of R&B – all presented here with incredible sound, in a collection that also includes 17 never-issued tracks! Roy Brown's music for King Records is the stuff of legend – some of the rawest, raunchiest, most hard-swinging material of the time – on a par with the label's classics by Tiny Bradshaw and Wynonie Harris, but maybe even better overall! And while Roy scored plenty of hits with King, he also spent a hell of a lot of time in the studio during the year 1947, too – recording a number of songs that never made it onto singles – all of which are presented here with stunning sound – as Ace Records went back to the original acetates for all the recordings in the package. Titles include "Lolly Pop Mama", "Special Lesson No 1", "Bye Baby Bye", "I'm The Man Who Sings The Blues", "Farm Town Gal", "My Mama's Boy Friend", "Long About Midnight", "The Gal's Drunk Again", "Whose Hat Is That", and "Looking For A Woman".

✨✧ Johnny CashOrange Blossom Special ... LP
Columbia, 1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest mid 60s Columbia albums by Cash! Orange Blossom Special is probably the most successful of Johnny's LPs in which he balances the profound influence of Bob Dylan with his own rough hewn style for something wholly unique. Cash covers 3 of Dylan's tunes on Orange Blossom, "It Ain't Me Babe", "Mama, You've Been On My Mind", and "Don't Think Twice, It's Alright". Other tracks include "You Wild Colorado", "When It's Springtime In Alaska", "Amen", and "Danny Boy". LP, Vinyl record album
(360 stereo pressing.)

✨✧ John ColtraneJohn Coltrane Quartet Plays ... CD
Impulse, 1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Modal Coltrane at its finest – a record that almost returns the great one to the territory explored at the end of his years at Atlantic Records, but which still incorporates all of the new ideas learned afterwards! The album's actually one of the straightest that John Coltrane cut after 1964 – and it features 4 long, beautiful tracks that soar with rhythms from McCoy Tyner, Jimmy Garrison, and Elvin Jones – topped with searing, searching work on tenor and soprano sax from Coltrane! Titles include one of the greatest readings of "Chim Chim Cheree" we've ever heard – a version that remakes the tune almost as a part 2 of "My Favorite Things" – and other titles include "Song of Praise", the classic "Nature Boy" and "Brazilia". The CD features two bonus versions of "Nature Boy", one of them live, and the bonus track "Feelin' Good"! Great stuff, and an album that ranks up there with the best of his work! CD

Columbia, 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Amazing live documents of Miles Davis and his incredible mid-to-late 60s quintet – Wayne Shorter on tenor, Herbie Hancock on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Tony Williams on drums – concert recordings from Antwerp, Copenhagen and Paris. This is landmark stuff here – a surprisingly rare opportunity to hear first rate live recordings of legendary material from the ESP, Miles Smiles, Sorcerer and Nefertiti albums – as well as brilliant revisits of vital earlier material. Includes live takes on "Agitation", "No Blues", "Gingerbread Boy", "On Green Dolphin Street", "The Theme", "Footprints", and "Masqualero". CD

✨✧ Miles DavisMiles Smiles (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Columbia, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Miles Smiles, but his grin is a wry one – given the angular energy of the set! The album's a landmark effort from the mid 60s quintet that includes Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, and Tony Williams – all of whom work without fail to capture Davis' newly emerging approach to jazz – a style that's touched with some of the light lyricism of the late 50s, but which has much sharper edges overall – and really approaches some of the best "new thing" modes that were going down at labels like Blue Note or Impulse! Many tunes have a subtly spare quality, but nonetheless work with a tremendous amount of power – and titles include a classic version of "Freedom Jazz Dance", a haunting take on Shorter's "Footprints", and the titles "Orbits", "Circle", "Dolores", and "Gingerbread Boy". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ DonovanGift From A Flower To A Garden (Epic) ... LP
Epic, 1967. Used 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the trippiest albums ever from Donovan, as you might guess from the title – a double-length gem that's filled with wonderfully groovy tunes! The set was cut during Donovan's killer years with producer Mickie Most in the late 60s – and it's got an instrumental feel that's even more laidback than some of his others from the time – mostly hip small combo instrumentation that features organ from Mike O'Neil, flute from Harold McNair, and vibes from Mike Carr – all done with some hip jazzy touches underneath Donovan's lead acoustic guitar – a folk-funk blend that's totally great, and which clearly set the scene for countless other imitations to come! Nobody can touch Donovan's charm at this point, though – and the album's a treasure through and through – filled with great tunes that include "Wear Your Love Like Heaven", "Skip A Long Sam", "Sun", "Little Boy In Corduroy", "Oh Gosh", "Under The Greenwood Tree", "Song Of The Naturalist's Wife", "Lay Of The Last Tinker", "The Lullaby Of Spring", "The Magpie", "Epistle To Derroll", "The Land Of Doesn't Have To Be", and "Mad John's Escape". LP, Vinyl record album
(Later US pressing with black labels, missing the book. Box is heavily worn with split corners.)

✨✧ El-P & Killer Mike (Run The Jewels)Run The Jewels ... LP
Fool's Gold/Mass Appeal, 2013. Used (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
El-P and Killer Mike finally deliver a killer duo record! We knew that this one would be a win, considering how great the El-P produced RAP Music album by Killer Mike turned out to be, how versatile the El-P futuristic production vibe is and how timelessly inventive each rapper is on their own. They didn't team-up to coast on their reputations, though, as Run The Jewels is nearly as great as anything either one has done in the preceding couple of years. Includes "Run The Jewels", "Banana Clipper" feat Big Boi, "DDFH, "Sea Legs", "No Come Down", "Get It", "Twin Hype Back" feat Prince Paul as his Handsome Boy alter-ego Chest Rockwell, "A Christmas F**king Miracle" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ John FaheyJohn Fahey Volume 1 – Blind Joe Death (180 gram clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
Takoma/4 Men With Beards, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The landmark 1967 Takoma version of Blind Joe Death – essentially a revised version of his debut LP – and a hugely influential record! Fahey's bluesy undercurrents showcase his love of early recorded music , but the Fahey's style is purely original. He's got these magical tones that cascade effortlessly off the heavily-plucked strings of his guitar – echoing older blues and folk modes, but never in a way that's stereotypical – and which is already woven through with the kind of sonorities that continued to make Fahey such an important artist over the years. Think of the set as a skewed version of American history – filtered through one mind and one set of hands – and you'll be well on the way to understanding the power of this music. The set features songs penned by Fahey, and redone versions of older material – and tracks include "St. Louis Blues", "Poor Boy Long Ways From Home", "John Henry", "Transcendental Waterfall", "Desperate Man Blues", "Sun Gonna Shine In My Back Door Someday Blues", and "On Doing An Evil Deed Blues". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 500!)
