Scion Sashay SuccessScion Sashay Success ... LP
Jah Life/Bond Export, 1986. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99 24.98
An underground classic from the digital generation – produced by Herman Wright and Percy Chin with a laidback groove – and some strong backings from Jah Malla & Instigators, A Team, and the I Life Players! Scion Sashay is the real star, though – a young singer, but one with strongly positive lyrics – delivered with just the right sort of understated quality to make them stand apart from the mainstream at the time! Titles include "Put It On", "Sound Boy Fall", "Ninety Minutes Cassette & Tape", "Can't Leave Jah Alone", "Juggling Spot", "Mr Telephone Man", "It A Go Done", "Minstrel", "Run Bring Your Love", and "Pain-A-Back". LP, Vinyl record album

Bill Summers & Summer's HeatLondon Style ... LP
MCA, 1983. Near Mint- ... $2.99
Bill Summers' London Style here is one that's definitely influenced by the changes on the dancefloor coming from the UK in the early 80s – and the groove is a slightly more electrified take on the rhythms that Bill was laying down on previous albums for MCA! Overall, though, the sound's still nice and warm at points – thanks to jazzy input from group members who keep things real enough to avoid any of the too-electric styles of British pop at the time. Most numbers have vocals – sung by Bill and others – and titles include "London Town", "Tech No Bop", "City Boy Lover", "Burn Out", "Born To Die", "It's Over", and "Privacy". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout notch and is bent a bit at the top.)

SupremesLove Child ... LP
Motown, 1968. Very Good- ... $4.99
Really one of the nicer late 60s efforts by the Supremes – now with Cindy Birdsong in the group in place of the departed Florence Ballard – with the now well known title track, and a number of other great pop soul numbers, with the classic Motown sound! The Supremes could arguably nail a big chorus better than just about any group in the history of pop and soul – and this set's filled with them. Overall, a lesser known batch of tunes but a very good one! Titles include "You've Been So Wonderful To Me", "Love Child", "Keep An Eye", "How Long Has The Evening Train Been Gone", "Does Your Mama Know About Me" and "He's My Sunny Boy". LP, Vinyl record album
(Later Motown pressing with no deep groove. Cover has light wear.)

Grady TateFeeling Life ... LP
Skye, 1969. Very Good ... $2.99
Early LP of moody mellow vocals recorded by Grady Tate for the Skye label with an orchestra led by Jerome Richardson. Tracks include sublime readings of "Nature Boy", "Meditation", "The End of a Love Affair", and "I Fall In Love Too Easily". Deep stuff, and one of the last gasps of a style that dominated male jazz vocals for generations. LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a promo sticker and some pen.)

Television PersonalitiesThey Could Have Been Bigger Than The Beatles ... LP
Fire (UK), 1982. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.99
The could have been bigger than the Beatles, but sadly they never came close – and instead, Television Personalities went on to become one of those great secrets from the British scene of the post-punk years – one of those groups that folks in the know always knew, which also includes a fair bit of later groups who were influenced strongly by their genius! This third album features material recorded over a few years – as sort of a summation of the group's strengths, and also a coda – as the package pulls together unreleased recordings and different versions of previous cuts – which makes for an overstuffed package of greatness. Titles include "Three Wishes", "The Boy In The Paisley Shirt", "Flowers For Abigail", "King & Country", "Sooty's Disco Party", "Painter Man", "Anxiety Block", "The Glittering Prizes", and "Mysterious Ways".

Clark Terry & Bob BrookmeyerGingerbread Men ... CD
Mainstream/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Mid 60s. New Copy ... About March 20, 2018
The team of Clark Terry & Bob Brookmeyer shouldn't work so well together – but although Terry's always been an optimist, and Brookmeyer's had a history as a modernist, the pair cut some great records together! This set's one of the best of a short run the Terry/Brookmeyer group cut for Mainstream in the mid 60s – a quintet session with Hank Jones on piano, Bob Cranshaw on bass, and Dave Bailey on drums – all players creative enough to match the playful spirit of the leaders, muting their rhythms one minute, and grooving them up the next! The mix of Terry's flugelhorn and Brookmeyer's trombone is especially great – a breathy approach to the horn parts that still swings hard, but with a fluid grace that's more pulsating than punctuating. Titles include a great version of Gary McFarland's "Milo's Other Samba", Jimmy Heath's "Gingerbread Boy", and the titles "Haig & Haig", "My Gal", "Naptown", and "Morning Mist". CD

Carla ThomasCarla (180 gram mono pressing) ... LP
Stax, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 21.99
Carla Thomas' second album for Stax – one of the classiest Memphis albums of the 60s, in a way that already had the young singer setting a new standard for the city's scene! While the early sound of Stax might normally be associated with gritty grooves, bumping and grinding out of the city's small club scene – right from the start, Carla Thomas was a talent who let the label hit a whole new level – able to work her vocals with the cool qualities of some of the bigger New York and Detroit divas of the time, which also seemed to elevate the overall Stax production vibe too. Original tracks are by the Isaac Hayes & David Porter team, and titles include "BABY", "What Have You Got To Offer Me", "I Got You Boy", "Fate", "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry", "I Fall To Pieces", and "Let Me Be Good To You".

Tuff CrewPhanjam (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Soo Deff/Octave (Japan), New Copy ... About March 20, 2018
Late old school era work by the Tuff Crew – who went on to put out records on Warlock! The Tuff Crew billed itself as an all star crew of MCs from Philly and New Jersey – and the sound reflects it. Schoolly D's production style seems to be a direct influence, as much as the rhymes remind us of the Ultramags. On that note, Kool Keith is credited as a producer. Future Butcher Brother Joe Nicolo engineered. Tracks include "Techno-"Tuff", "Tuff In The House", "And We Will Rock", "Art Of Love", "So Ridiculous", "Def Joun", "B-Boy Document" and "Kick The Ball".

Dana ValeryNot The Flower But The Root ... LP
Brunswick, 1972. Sealed ... $29.99
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".

Milli VernonIntroducing Milli Vernon (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Storyville/Craftman (Japan), 1956. New Copy (reissue)... About December 20, 2017 (delayed)
Beautifully moody work from singer Milli Vernon – a rare Storyville session from the mid 50s, cut with a relaxed, late nite feel – and backing from a small combo that includes Ruby Braff on trumpet, Jimmy Raney on guitar, and Dave McKenna on piano! The sound is very much in keeping with some of the better-known Storyville sessions of the period – done at a level that was quite similar to being in a small club in the wee hours, hearing a jazz singer open up in a relatively unfettered setting. Vernon's got a style that's somewhat mature and adult, but never too stodgy – and titles include "Moon Ray", "My Ship", "Spring Is Here", "Weep For The Boy", "This Year's Kisses", and "I Don't Know What Kind Of Blues I've Got".

Eddie Cleanhead VinsonBald Headed Blues – His Complete King Recordings 1949 to 1952 ... CD
King/Ace (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
If you've never fully exposed yourself to the genius of Eddie Cleanhead Vinson, prepare to get your mind blown – because he's a hell of a singer, a hell of an alto saxophonist, and a massive R&B talent in these early sides for King Records! Eddie's work here easily rivals contemporary King Records greatness from Roy Brown and Wynonie Harris – but maybe tops them even more, given his strong work on his own horn – blown with the lusty fullness of a tenor, and balanced with Vinson's fantastic vocals – which, at their fullest, often feel like they're blowing a fuse in a similar style to his saxophone! This is the best collection we've ever seen of these tracks – presented with great notes, beautiful sound, and even a few unissued tracks – in a total of 26 titles that include "Ashes On My Pillow", "Eddie's Bounce", "No Good Woman Blues", "Somebody Done Stole My Cherry Red", "Wineola", "My Big Brass Bed Is Gone", "Queen Bee Blues", "Jump & Grunt", "Home Boy", "Time After Time", and "The People On My Party Line".

Scott WalkerScott 2 ... LP
Fontana/Universal (UK), 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $34.99
Amazing! Although Scott Walker had issued one solo album before this one, Scott 2 is the record that really has his true genius beginning to shine through! The record still features Scott singing dark moody takes on 60s pop tunes – like "Best Of Both Worlds" and "Black Sheep Boy" – plus the usual round of Brel tunes – including "Jackie" and "The Girls & The Dogs", but it's also got some of his best songwriting ever, etched out in incredible original compositions like "The Amorous Humphrey Plugg", "The Girls From The Streets", and "Plastic Palace People". Those three songs alone might have been enough if Scott had stopped there in his career – as they're perfectly realized visions that match the world of Brecht, Bergman, and Sartre he'd been steeping himself in. Orchestrations are sublime on all tracks, and the record's one we'll treasure forever! LP, Vinyl record album

Grover Washington JrInner City Blues ... LP
Kudu, 1972. Very Good ... $7.99
Sweet funky jazz from Grover Washington – an early standout session from his classic years on Kudu Records, put together with hip arrangements from the mighty Bob James! The record's got the same spacious sense of grooving as James' first few for CTI – a style that's funky fusion, but a bit more laidback than most – not nearly as jamming, and with almost as much focus on lean rhythms as on key solos from the players in the group! Most tracks have a long, open sort of feel – and in addition to alto and tenor from Grover, other instrumentation includes organ from Richard Tee, guitar from Eric Gale, drums from Idris Muhammad, percussion from Airto, and electric piano from Bob James himself. Titles include versions of "Mercy Mercy Me", "Ain't No Sunshine/Theme From Man & Boy", "Until It's Time For You To Go", and "Inner City Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

Muddy WatersFathers & Sons (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Chess/MCA, 1969. Used ... $8.99
One of the biggest albums of Muddy Waters' career – a key crossover effort that has Waters as the "father" working with "sons" Paul Butterfield and Michael Bloomfield! The style here is still quite rootsy overall – and the double-length session features one album recorded in the studio, and a second done live at the Super Cosmic Joy-Scout Jamboree – key evidence of the growing hippie audience for blues like this! The core group features Waters on vocals with Otis Spann on piano, Mike Bloomfield on guitar, Paul Butterfield on harmonica, Donald Duck Dunn on bass, and Sam Lay on drums – and guest players include Phil Upchurch on bass and Buddy Miles on drums – each on one number. Titles include "All Aboard", "Mean Disposition", "Forty Days & Forty Nights", "Sugar Sweet", "Twenty Four Hours", "I'm Ready", "Walkin Thru The Park", "Got My Mojo Working (parts 1 & 2)", "The Same Thing", "Baby Please Don't Go", and "Honey Bee".Studio & live recordings. Includes the bonus prreviously unreleased tracks "Country Boy", "I Love The Lifre I Live", "Oh Yeah", "I Feel So Good". CD

✨✧ Muddy WatersReal Folk Blues ... CD
Chess, 1950s. Used ... $4.99
A classic packaging of Muddy Waters' famous early work for Chess Records – brought together with a cover and title that pitch him strongly towards the growing folk movement of the time! And, although most of these tracks were recorded in Chicago, with some electric guitar in the mix, there's a definitely folksy quality to most of the numbers – a down-home feel that's nice and gritty, stepping along with spare instrumentation alongside the vocals. Titles include "Mannish Boy", "Screamin & Cryin", "Just To Be With You", "Walkin Blues", "Walkin Through The Park", "Same Thing", and "Canary Bird". CD

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

Andrew WhiteSaxophonitis Wondersax Series Vol 4 – I Love Japan/Have Band Will Travel ... CD
Andrew's Music, 1979. New Copy ... $12.99 14.99
A pair of great records from saxophonist Andrew White – back to back on a single CD! First up is I Love Japan – a great second set from Andrew White's One Step series – a record dedicated to jazz listeners in Japan, but featuring some core elements from the American scene of the postwar years! 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! On side one, White really sparkles on some bop tunes, taken to the limit – versions of "Good Bait" and "Parker's Mood" that are handled with rich energy that really shows off his great one. Side two features some incredible versions of John Coltrane material – a take on "Crescent" – plus a "Coltrane Triptych" – with versions of "Some Other Blues", "Blue Train", and "The Sleeper". Have Band Will Travel was 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". CD

Andrew WhiteSaxophonitis Wondersax Series Vol 5 – Super Bonus Sampler ... CD
Andrew's Music, Mid 70s. New Copy ... $12.99 14.99
Rare tracks from reedman Andrew White's own label – almost all recorded during that mid 70s stretch when White was really on fire, and making some important contributions to the DC jazz scene! White's a hell of a player, and if you've never heard him before, this set's a great place to start – as Andrew can stretch out on an alto like few other folks – as open and spiritual as Coltrane or Dolphy, but also able to step back in and swing when needed too – as you'll hear on the wonderful array of tracks on this set! The work augments the previous four volumes in White's CD series – and we believe these are extra tracks that weren't on those other titles – with players who include Kevin Toney and Donald Waters on piano, Keith Killgo and Bernard Sweetney on drums, and the mighty Steve Novosel on bass throughout. White's in the spotlight on most numbers – blowing amazing solos – on titles that include "Big Nick", "Superfly Disco Boy", "Straight Ahead Blues", "Giant Steps", "Mr PC", "What's New", and "Rim Shot".

✨✧ WhoQuadrophenia ... LP
Track/MCA, 1973. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
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

WhoTommy ... LP
Decca, 1970. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $19.99
An amazing moment from The Who – and from the UK rock scene in general – as Tommy is one of the most fully-conceived concept albums ever recorded – a masterful effort that's still pretty hard to match all these many years later! Pete Townshend really knocked it out of the park with this one – and pushed the group way way past the simpler songs the were recording just a year before – into this deeply introspective territory, spun out both in the album's words and music. The Tommy tale's been well told many times over the years – so we won't bother with the full narrative – but just let us say that it's hard to go wrong with this one, an essential item in any collection of adventurous rock – classic or otherwise. Titles include "The Acid Queen", "It's A Boy", "Sally Simpson", "Miracle Cure", "Pinball Wizard", "Do You Think It's Alright", "Cousin Kevin", "Christmas", "Tommy's Holiday Camp", "I'm Free", and "We're Not Gonna Take It". LP, Vinyl record album
(Later MCA pressing, including booklet. Cover has light wear.)
