✨✧ BB KingCompletely Well ... LP
Bluesway, 1969. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
BB King soars into the 70s with this smoking little set – a record that still holds onto all the raw energy of his best 60s recordings, but which also gives the whole thing an even more soulful focus too! There's no arranger credited for the core of the record – which is attributed to "everybody" in the group, which you can definitely hear in the wickedly spontaneous playing of the combo – especially the mighty drummer Herbie Lovelle, whose work here really gives King a new sort of kick. Bert DeCoteaux adds a bit of larger backings at points, but usually very gently – in ways that are hardly noticeable at all – as BB's guitar is right out front, wailing with lots of raw energy. Titles include "Key To My Kingdom", "Confessin The Blues", "No Good", "You're Losing Me", "So Excited", and the classic "Thrill Is Gone". LP, Vinyl record album

Albert AylerSwing Low Sweet Spiritual ... LP
Osmosis (Netherlands), 1964. Very Good+ ... $39.99
Pre-ESP Records work from the legendary Albert Ayler – and a really special set that definitely shows his strong ties to a previous legacy of African-American music! Ayler always clamed blues and other roots in his sound, but didn't always show them as clearly – given his free-thinking, forward-moving approach – yet this set has Albert really reworking an older influence, by taking older songs from gospel and secular sources, and using them as a completely compelling springboard for his new ideas on tenor and soprano sax! The album's the sort that David Murray might have cut in the mid 80s – but conceived by Ayler two decades before – and sadly unissued for years after its recording, possibly because it's a very sensitive, soulful set that's different than the frenetic power of later albums on ESP. A real treasure throughout – with work from Call Cobbs Jr on piano, Henry Grimes on bass, and Sonny Murray on drums – on titles that include "Swing Low Sweet Chariot", "Deep River", "Goin Home", "Ol Man River", "Down By The Riverside", and "Nobody Knows The Trouble I've Seen".

Spencer Barefield, Anthony Holland, & Tani TabbalTransdimensional Space Window ... LP
Trans African, 1982. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A nice set from these latter day Detroit free music explorers, with a spiritual vibe and a varied approach to improvisation that isn't afraid to groove at moments, but also involves some nice textural dynamic playing in a very post AACM mode. Anthony Holland plays reeds, Tani Tabal tablas and trap drums and Spencer Barefield a variety of guitars. 3 lengthy pieces and 1 shorter one: "Inbetween Song", "Roscoe Mitchell – Clouds Taking Pictures Of Birds", the 6-part "Transdimensional Space Window Suite" and "Dawudaphone Dance".

John BarryChase ... LP
Columbia, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A lesser-known moment of genius from John Barry – quite different than his work for the James Bond films of the time! Barry's working here in a mix of more ambitious orchestral themes – dark, brooding, and moody – but also interspersed with some lighter jazzier numbers that are really great too! The film had a short life as a blockbuster – surprising, given that it was directed by Arthur Penn, written by Lillian Hellman, and starring Marlon Brando, Robert Redford, Jane Fonda, and Angie Dickinson amidst a host of other well-known talents – but the real charm is almost Barry's music, which olds up really well over the years! Our favorite titles include "Saturday Night Philosopher", "Look Around", "The Beating", "Blues For Bubber", and the sweetly jazzy "I'll Drink To That". And oddly, there doesn't seem to be a single traditional "chase" number in the whole film! LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby BlandSpotlighting The Man ... LP
Duke, 1967. Very Good- ... $24.99
Fantastic stuff, like all of Bobby's early Duke albums, and a breathtaking mix of soul and R&B, with some nice jazzy touches in the arrangements. Tracks include "Wouldn't You Rather Have Me", "Ask Me Nothin' About The Blues", "Gotta Get To Know You", and "You Ought To Be Ashamed". Great stuff, and Bobby's voice is wonderful!

✨✧ BlondieAutoamerican ... LP
Chrysalis, 1980. Very Good- ... $4.99
Out of New York rock and roll ideas, Debbie Harry decides to pilfer the subcultures to make her sound a bit more interesting! Fortunately for us, she got some help from guitar maestro Chris Stein on the track "Rapture" – and Stein's real interest in the music gave it a stone old school groove that's held up pretty well over the years! More famously, Harry went for a bit of reggae on the track "The Tide Is High" – taking Duke Reid's original, and turning it into a global hit! LP, Vinyl record album

King, 1963. Sealed ... $14.99
Bostic leads the crew on lesser known jazz numbers from the pens of Johnny Pate, Herbie Mann, Joe Puma and others, plus some Bostic originals. This one features some really dynamic solo work from Richard Groove Holmes on Hammond and Joe Pass on guitar! Al McKibbon is on bass and Earl Palmer hits the drums. Titles include "Karen", "Woodchuck", "Blues For The Ivy Leagues", "Nita", "Empathy", "Wednesday's Child" and "Inquiry". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Tommy Boyce & Bobby HartI Wonder What She's Doing Tonite ... LP
A&M, Late 60s. Very Good ... $14.99
Brilliant 60s pop from the team of Tommy Boyce & Bobby Hart – best known for their key early songwriting work for The Monkees, but a heck of a great duo on their own! Boyce & Hart have a sparkly, sunshiney sound that's very much a part of The Monkees generation – a beautiful post-folk, post-surf blend of styles, and one that's served up with all the warmth and charm that made The Monkees so great – yet also with some cool twists and turns that make a record like this so great – the kind of chance-taking that A&M sometimes allowed its artists to take at the time! Backings are super-groovy – arranged by Artie Butler and Don McGinis – and titles include "I Wonder What She's Doing Tonite", "Teardrop City", "I Wanna Be Free", "The Countess", "Population", and "Two For The Price Of One" – a great cover of a Larry Williams & Johnny Watson soul tune!

Tommy Boyce & Bobby HartIt's All Happening On The Inside ... LP
A&M, 1968. Very Good ... $14.99
One of the headiest albums from the team of Tommy Boyce & Bobby Hart – as you might guess from the image on the cover! The album continues the playful quality of previous A&M sets, but also has a deeper feel too – a bit more soul on the vocals, which really comes through on the album's few covers – and a slightly more socially-conscious approach to the lyrics too – supported by backings by a core group that features John Gallie on some especially great organ and keyboards, and great arrangements from Jimmie Haskell! The shift is great proof that these two were way more than just songwriters – and titles include "Change", "Maybe Somebody Heart", "Abracadabra", "My Baby Loves Sad Songs", "Thanks For Sunday", and "Strawberry Girl".

Peter Boyle/Bobby ScottJoe Speaks ... LP
Mercury, 1970. Very Good ... $3.99
A wonderful document of a very wild film! The album's a companion soundtrack to the musical score of Joe – and features star Peter Boyle speaking his mind on topics that include the economy, hippies, drugs, and drinking! The set includes a few of the vocal numbers from the film – folksy rock numbers written by Bobby Scott that include "Hey Joe", "Where Are You Going", and "You Can Fly" – next to bits by Boyle that have a really creepy sort of edge. Titles include "The American Bar Scene", "Four Bucks An Hour", "Park Avenue Offices", "I Got All I Need Sonny", "Making It", and "Guess Who's Coming To Dinner". LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby BradfordLove's Dream ... LP
Emanem (UK), 1973. Near Mint- ... $34.99
Seminal sounds from cornet player Bobby Bradford – a date recorded in the UK in the early 70s, but with all the free-thinking and imaginative energy as his best sessions in LA! The group pits Bobby's horn against three young modernists – Trevor Watts on alto and soprano sax, Kent Carter on bass, and John Stevens on drums – all working in these long-flowing, very rhythmic numbers that lie somewhere between Bradford's work with John Carter, and the early 60s sound of Ornette Coleman. The alto/cornet interplay is especially nice – very mesmerizing over the course of the album's very long tracks – and Watts turns out to be a great musical partner for Bobby. Titles include "Love's Dream", "Coming On", and "Roswita's Dance". LP, Vinyl record album

BrainstormJourney To The Light ... LP
Tabu, 1978. Very Good ... $6.99
A tremendous little album from Brainstorm – funky and clubby at the same time – yet delivered with this righteous energy that few of their contemporaries could ever hope to match! There's a perfect melding of modes going on here that may well rival Earth Wind & Fire at their best – really avoiding any of the commercial or club cliches of some of the other big funk ensembles of the time, and stretching back with a sense of energy that really keeps the whole thing going. The instrumentation is impeccable – with some jazzy flourishes that really keep things interesting – but it's the vocals that really make the album sparkle, as they've got a blending of male and female voices that's a bit like some of Roy Ayers' work, but also with some echoes of the spiritual jazz underground. The set features the wonderful two-part number "We're On Our Way Home" – a joyous anthem that never gets old – and other titles include "Loving Just You", "If You Ever Need To Cry", "Brand New Day", "Journey To The Light", and "Positive Thinking".

Dave BrubeckTime Out ... LP
Columbia, 1959. Very Good- ... $14.99
Easily the crowning moment of genius for the legendary Dave Brubeck Quartet – the moment when all things came together magically, and the group somehow elevated themselves to a whole new level in jazz! At the time of the set, Brubeck, Paul Desmond, and the rest had already been making plenty of waves with their creative yet swinging approaches to modern jazz – heard on a number of successful albums for Fantasy and Columbia in the 50s. But with this record, they really knocked one out of the park – blending Desmond's cool alto, Brubeck's unusual piano phrasing, Joe Morello's melodic drum work, and Eugene Wright's pulsating bass into a waltzing, almost modal groove that crossed over to many camps at the time! The classics "Take Five" and "Blue Rondo Ala Turk" were both hits on their own – but all titles are great, and include "Kathy's Waltz", "Strange Medow Lark", "Everybody's Jumpin", and "Pick Up Sticks". LP, Vinyl record album
(6 eye stereo pressing. Cover has a half split top seam and a name in pen on back. Vinyl has some stubborn residue.)

Bobby BryantEarth Dance ... LP
World Pacific, 1969. Very Good Gatefold ... $4.99
Killer groovers from trumpeter Bobby Bryant – with more than enough force in the rhythms to make the entire earth dance! The mighty Wayne Henderson's along for the set, helping Bobby out – making one of his first steps away from the Jazz Crusaders to produce another artist – and really pointing the way towards some of his best jazz funk sessions of the 70s! The group is large, but mighty tight – and sports players like Ernie Watts on tenor, Joe Sample on keyboards, Herman Riley on saxes, Freddie Hill on trumpet, and George Bohannon on trombone – a wicked lineup that bounces nicely on electric basslines from Wilton Felder! There's a great crisp edge to all cuts – and titles include "While My Guitar Gently Weeps", "Happiness Is A Warm Gun", "Cristo Redentor", and Freddie Hubbard's "Crisis". LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia, 1977. Very Good- ... $2.99
Heavy funk and super-tight horns – all wrapped up in the kind of a groove that made BT Express one of the hottest club acts of the 70s! The group are at the height of their powers here – working with excellent arrangements from Carlos Ward – a jazzman at heart, and a talent who gives the group all these complicated touches that make them way more than just another soul group with horns – even while the tracks are still moving strongly forward, and stepping strong to a killer clubby groove! Titles include "Funky Music", "Sunshine", "Star Gazer", "How Big Can You Dream", "Eyes", and "Scratch My Itch". LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Note (Japan), Late 50s. Near Mint- ... $69.99
Rare sides by Kenny Burrell – recorded for Blue Note in the 50s, but unissued until the time of this early 80s Japanese-only release! The tracks are pulled from three different sessions, a couple of them live dates, and showcase Burrell in a variety of formats alongside top notch players like Tina Brooks, Junior Cook, Frank Foster, Louis Smith, Duke Jordan, Tommy Flanagan, Roland Hanna, Bobby Timmons, Art Blakey, Sam Jones, Shadow Wilson, Oscar Pettiford and Ben Tucker. Like so many other dynamite Japanese releases, this set showcases some terrific work, sides that it's hard to believe sat around on a shelf unplayed and unissued for so many years! Titles include "I Never Knew", "My Heart Stood Still", "Beef Blues Stew", "If You Could See Me Now" and "Swingin'". LP, Vinyl record album

Gary BurtonSeven Songs For Quartet & Chamber Orchestra ... LP
ECM (Germany), 1974. Very Good+ ... $6.99
A really wonderful setting for the vibes of Gary Burton – a special ECM session that pairs his quartet with larger orchestral backdrops – all conducted by Michael Gibbs, who also wrote the music for the date! Gibbs had already risen to fame by the time of this record – thanks to some groundbreaking albums for large ensembles on the British jazz scene of the late 60s – where he demonstrated a tremendous ear for intimate tones and subtle sounds amidst a larger group. Here, that talent turns out to work perfectly for the rich tones of Burton's vibes – allowing them to develop slowly and spaciously, despite the larger orchestra. The core quartet also features Michael Goodrick on guitar, Steve Swallow on bass, and Ted Seibs on drums – and titles include "The Rain Before It Falls", "Three", "Phases", "Throb", and "Nocturne Vulgaire/Arise Her Eyes". LP, Vinyl record album

CanLost Tapes (5LP set – 180 gram pressing, with book & poster) ... LP
Spoon, Late 60s-Mid 70s. Near Mint- 5LPs ... $119.99
A mighty impressive 5LP box set of previously unreleased Can – incredible stuff captured throughout their groundbreaking run from the late 60s to mid 70s – and culled from hours (and hours!) of tapes of the sessions that could have just as easily wound up on any of their classic records of the period! We figured that this would almost certainly be a solid companion piece to their initial run of classic albums – but the best thing about it is that it out stands up really well on its own. Can pretty famously let the tapes run while they worked things out and let the magic happen spontaneously, so it stands to reason that a lot of brilliant stuff was left on those tapes! We're surprised it took so long to pour through it and assemble some of the best of the "lost" material, but better late than never! Since it covers the full late 60s & early 70s periods, it's got bits with Mooney and Suzuki – and features hypnotic live takes, slow-building tense jams, moody lulls and violent bursts of sound – it's Can, alright! 30 tracks sequenced brilliantly over 5LPs. Titles include "Millionenspiel", "Waiting For The Street Car", "Evening All Day", "Deadly Doris", "Bubble Rap", "Your Friendly Neighborhood Whore", "Bilnd Mirror Sur", "Bubble Rap", "Godzilla Fragment", "Barnacles", "The Agreement", "The Loop", "A Swan Is Born" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Robert Corff, Gourmet's Delight, Johnny & The TornGas-s-s-s ... LP
Air, 1970. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A groovy soundtrack for a Roger Corman film – and one that's filled with some offbeat rock tunes created for the movie! There's kind of an offbeat feel to most of the numbers – tunes that aren't really trying to get on the radio at all, or be hits of any kind – and which more seek to echo popular modes of the period, and then wrap them around some of the themes of the film. The most soundtrack-like numbers are the instrumental ones – which often break the rock format a bit, and get nice and interesting with the instrumentation. The core group on the set are supposedly The Fish – from Country Joe & The Fish – who sound especially nice on instrumental numbers that include "Cry A Little", "Juke Box Serenade", "Castles", "Bubble Gum Girl", and "The Pueblo Pool", billed to Johnny & The Tornados; appearing next to vocal numbers "This Is The Beginning", "I'm Looking For A World", and "World That We All Dreamed Of" by Robert Corff; and "First Time Last Time" and "Today Is Where" by The Gourmet's Delight.

Eddie Lockjaw Davis/Johnny Griffin QuintetTough Tenors Again N Again ... LP
MPS, 1970. Very Good+ ... $2.99
A smoking twin-tenor session for MPS – one that reunites the mighty talents of Johnny Griffin and Eddie Lockjaw Davis! The album was done as an offshoot of both players' work for the Clarke Boland Big Band at the time – and the set was not only produced by CBBB impresario Gigi Campi, but also features a core rhythm trio from that ensemble – Francy Boland on piano, Jimmy Woode on bass, and Kenny Clarke on drums! Tracks are nice and long, and have a sound that really shows the evolution of both players since their famous recordings of the early 60s – tones that are even more modern and edgey at points, served up with a fire that hasn't died at all – and set loose on rhythms that move past the usual grooves you might have expected from their American sessions together. Titles include "Tin Tin Deo", "Jim Dawg", "Gigi", "When We Were One", and "Again N Again". LP, Vinyl record album

Miles DavisIn Person Friday Night At The Blackhawk – Vol 1 ... LP
Columbia, 1961. Very Good- ... $12.99
Legendary early live work from Miles Davis – one of the first examples on record of the way that Davis could really stretch out in a concert setting! The music's a bit more straight ahead than later live dates, but still pretty open and exploratory – and in addition to Davis' sparkling work on trumpet, the album also features some killer tenor lines from Hank Mobley – working here as a key part of Miles' group, and blowing with a hell of a lot of soul. Rhythm is by the rock-solid trio of Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Jimmy Cobb on drums – and titles include "All Of You", "No Blues", "Bye Bye" and "Walkin". LP, Vinyl record album
(6 eye pressing. Cover has a split bottom seam & some staining.)
