BB KingLive & Well ... LP
Bluesway/ABC, 1969. Very Good- Gatefold ... $6.99
BB King not just live, but well-recorded in the studio too – in this classic ABC set that showcases both sides of his talents! Side one is the live set – and it's arguably better than any of the previous other concert recordings he did for the label – with a tighter, moodier feel that's almost more small club – with backing from a combo that features Charlie Boles on Hammond, Patrick Williams on trumpet, and Lee Gatling on tenor. Live titles include "Just A Little Love", "Sweet Little Angel", "Don't Answer The Door", and "Please Accept My Love". Side two is studio material, with some mighty sweet arrangements by Johnny Pate that almost bring a bit of funk into the mix at times – particularly on the drums which really groove things along! Herbe Lovelle handles the drum kit, and overall things are leaner than any previous Pate work with King – nice and raw, on cuts that include "I Want You So Bad", "Friends", "Get Off My Back Woman", and "Why I Sing The Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

BB KingTo Know You Is To Love You ... LP
ABC/MCA, 1973. Very Good+ ... $5.99
A set that has BB King teaming up with southern soul maestro Dave Crawford – an arranger/producer who helps BB find a whole new groove! Crawford's approach is wonderfully warm and soulful – almost a Hi Records sort of take on the music, which brings King's traditional blues into much fresher territory – an update of older Memphis modes, with a really great sound for the 70s. In addition to The Memphis Horns, there's also a bit of Philly help on the record too – thanks to Vince Montana's vibes, Norman Harris' guitar, Ron Kersey's keyboards, and Ronnie Baker's bass. Stevie Wonder makes a brief guest appearance on keyboards too – and titles include "Oh To Me", "Love", "Respect Yourself", "I Like To Live The Love", "Who Are You", "I Can't Leave", and "Thank You For Loving The Blues".

BB King & Bobby BlandTogether For The First Time – Live ... LP
ABC, 1974. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $6.99
A mid 70s meeting of two seminal blues talents from the Memphis scene – singer Bobby Blue Bland, and legendary guitarist BB King! The pair were both working for ABC at the time – major label fame after years woodshedding in the indies – and hitting well-deserved fame for their huge talents – still as fresh here as they were a decade before, and unmarred by any studio sanitization in this great live set! The record does an especially good job of bringing together the artists verbally – letting Bobby and BB open up and rap a bit during the songs – yet still having plenty of space to go into their own thing musically, too. Titles include "It's My Own Fault", "I'll Take Care Of You", "I'm Sorry", "3 O'Clock Blues", "Goin Down Slow", and a great long Medley track. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ BB KingIndianola Mississippi Seeds ... LP
ABC, 1970. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
BB King hips up his groove a bit here – picking up some of the crossover soul and rock touches used by contemporaries over at Chess/Cadet, and expanding his sound with a range of guests that include Leon Russell, Joe Walsh, and Carole King! Despite the presence of these bigger names, the set's very much in BB's own spirit – mostly focused on his vocals and guitar work, and still mostly including original compositions. A few tunes get nice and funky on the rhythms, although still very much in a blues-based way – and Jimmie Haskell contributes a few larger arrangements from time to time. Titles include "King's Special", "Until I'm Dead & Cold", "You're Still My Woman", "Hummingbird", "Go Underground", and "Chains & Things". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Four TopsCatfish ... LP
ABC, 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A lot greater than you'd expect – like most of The Four Tops' excellent work on ABC. The classic Motown sound is no longer, but in its place is the same sort of positive 70s soul grooving that Lamont Dozier picked up on the label – a style that makes a perfect platform for the vocals of Levi Stubbs. Backing is by Earl Van Dyke & The Soul Brothers – and titles include "Catfish", "Feel Free", "Strung Out For Your Love", "Love Don't Come Easy", and "You Can't Hold Back On Love".

Bobby Bare, Norma Jean, & Liz AndersonGame Of Triangles ... LP
RCA, 1967. Very Good ... $0.99
A compelling take on the country duo mode of the 60s – an album that features some tracks that have all three singers working together – beautiful "love triangle" numbers – then more tracks that feature each singer on their own! The triangle numbers are especially compelling – and include "One Among The Three Of Us", "Bye Bye Love", "Three Mixed Up Hearts", "Which One Is To Blame", and "The Game Of Triangles" – a really fresh version of country heartbreak modes. Other cuts are nice, too – and include Bobby Bare singing "Homesick" and "Guess I'll Move On Down The Line", Liz Anderson singing "The Wife Of The Party" and "Fairytale", and Norma Jean singing "Pursuing Happiness" and "Don't Let That Doorknob Hit You".

Capitol, 1965. Very Good+ ... $19.99
A landmark leaping-off point for The Beatles – and a record that really paved the way for countless new ideas to come! The mix of catchy pop and freer ideas here is really wonderful – tunes that introduce a whole new mature world in mainstream music – yet manage to have all the catchy complexity of the earlier years too. Production, songwriting, and delivery is superb – and titles include "Norwegian Wood", "Think For Yourself", "The Word", "Girl", "I'm Looking Through You", and "Run For Your Life"".

Bobby BlandGet On Down With Bobby Bland ... LP
ABC, 1975. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Brilliant later work by Bobby Blue Bland – done with backings that are much fuller than on his earlier albums – a mixture of strings and horns that really expand the sound! That doesn't keep things from being soulful, though – as Bobby's in incredible form vocally, really rising to the occasion of the session with some of his best vocal performances of the decade. Great throughout – and one of his few true classic sessions after the early Duke years. Titles include "Today I Started Loving You Again", "I Take It On Home", "I Hate You", "If Fingerprints Showed Up On Skin", and "Too Far Gone". LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby's young soulful voice is in top form on this set, and the LP includes such great cuts as "Ain't Nothing You Can Do", "I'm Gonna Cry", "Black Night", and "Steal Away". Very cool cover, too, with a cartoon of Bobby and some girl standing on opposite sides of a huge breaking heart! LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby CallenderRainbow ... LP
Akarma/MGM (Italy), 1968. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $24.99
A weird one! The album's sort of a trippy mix of psychedelia, soul, and jazziness – with production by Alan Lorber in a similar style to other projects of his from the same time (like the Lotus Palace album on Verve.) Bobby Callender sings in a style that's infused with a sense of knowledge and righteousness, but which is also a bit more devoid of soul than you'd expect from the cool cover of the album. Still, he's got some nice musicians backing him up, and a blend of instruments that includes organ, funky drums, and even sitar – so the overall sound's pretty cool. Titles include "Rainbow", "Symphonic Pictures", "A Man", "Mother Superior", and "Purple". LP is reissued as a 3-sided package – with the bonus cuts "Symphonic Pictures", "The Glow Within Thee", and "Raga Man"! LP, Vinyl record album

Jerry GoldsmithSand Pebbles ... LP
20th Century, 1966. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $2.99
A really striking score from Jerry Goldsmith – penned with just the right sense of drama and tension for this mid 60s military thriller! Goldsmith's already working here with a full palette of colors – and Lionel Newman conducts the music with an added richness that seems to bring out all of his long experience on big budget epics, yet deliver the end results with the more subtle, compressed modes that make Goldsmith one of the more mature composers of the 60s. Horns shimmer with this great sense of restraint – almost painting colors in sound – and given the setting of the film, there's some slight exotic hints in a few instrumental passages as well.

Bobby JasparBobby Jaspar In Paris (aka Bobby Jaspar Quintet) ... LP
Disques Swing, 1956. Near Mint- ... $6.99
Rare American work from reedman Bobby Jaspar – a player best known for his contributions to French jazz in the postwar years, but working here with a set of American players! The album was recorded in New York for French branch of Columbia Records – done in November of 1956, and pitting Jaspar with some very well-matched musicians! The date features Jaspar on tenor, flute, and clarinet – with a tightly swinging trio that includes Tommy Flanagan on piano, Knobby Totah on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums – a slightly modern combo whose work sounds especially great when Jaspar hits some hauntingly lyrical notes on flute. Titles include "Clarinescapade", "Tutti Flutti", "What's New", "Spring Is Here", "Wee Dot", and "I Won't Dance". LP, Vinyl record album

Muse, 1972. Near Mint- ... $9.99
An excellent debut from saxophonist Bobby Jones – an extremely talented player whose work was a big part of the Charles Mingus group in the early 70s – and an artist who works with a surprising sense of soul! The album's got Bobby in a really great lineup – with sensitive backing from Charles McPherson on alto sax, Jaki Byard on piano, Richard Davis on bass, and Mickey Roker on drums – and 2 tracks feature some added whimsicality from Bob Dorough, who plays electric piano, and Sue Evans, who plays an assortment of percussion. Bob plays on the groovy tunes "Stone Bossa" and "Keepin Up With The Joneses" – and other tracks include "Thanks To Trane", "Ballad For Two Sons", "As The Crow Flies", and "Blues For The Brown Buddha".

Johnny KeatingRobbery ... LP
London, 1967. Sealed ... $11.99
A killer soundtrack from jazzy Johnny Keating – a set that we'd rank right up there with his other non-film work of the 60s! The score's got a bold, edgey sort of quality – one that shows a real maturation in Keating's music since the earlier part of the decade – but still that great sense of rhythm and repetition that first made him stand out so strongly. The horns are especially great – bold and brassy one minute, then laidback and compressed the next – filled with great colors and tones that show a link back to Stan Kenton sounds of the 50s, turned towards much groovier ends for Johnny's 60s generation. All tracks are originals, and the titles include the lead vocal "Born To Lose", sung by Jackie Lee – plus "Kate's Theme", "Gang's Arrest", "Accident", "Diamond Robbery", "Breaking Into The Mail Van", and "Passing The Mail Bags".

Murray McNabbWay In Is The Way Out – Music Of Murray McNabb (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Sarang Bang (New Zealand), Late 70s/1980s/2000s. Sealed 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99
A much-needed look at the work of New Zealand keyboardist/composer Murray McNabb – an artist who's hardly known within his own nation, much less the rest of the world – but one who comes across here with a wonderful array of sounds! The record mixes together vintage recordings from the 70s and 80s with a few more contemporary tracks – and throughout it all, Murray's a hell of a talent with a really revelatory sound – able to create these colors and tones with a very spiritual vibe – often playing electric piano, but in a setting that also has plenty of strong acoustic elements too – including great reeds from Aussie jazz legend Brian Smith, whose sharp edges really bring a lot of bite to the record! A few numbers are warm, and almost funky – and throughout the whole set, McNabb demonstrates this great ear for lyrical lines that have a great deal of power, and which never fail to captivate our ears. Other musicians include Gianmarco Liguori or Tuhi Timoti on guitar, Kim Paterson on trumpet, and Peter Wood on vibes – and a number of tracks are taken from tapes, without set dates of recording. Titles include "Paradox", "The Private Life Of Birds", "Parisienne", "Song For The Dreamweaver", "Mr Gone", "Karmapa Chenno", "Coquero", "Magenta", "King Kong", "Fourth World", "Meditation In D", and "Radio Priestess".

A very cool record that we might well put right up there with Mel Torme's "California Suite" as a musical tribute to the west coast – or the "Manhattan Tower" of Gordon Jenkins as some sort of tribute to a city! The album's a long piece on the glory of San Francisco – with lots of differently-themed tunes that refer to aspects of the city in mid-century – composed by the team of Libby and Stephen McNeil, set to music by David Rose –a nd featuring vocals by Ray Goman, Shepard Menken, Bob Grabot, Bill Thompson, and others. Titles include "Fog Over Frisco", "Meet The Press", "When You Call It Frisco Smile", "Around The Town Sequence", andee "Mission Dolores".

A strange little soundtrack from Andrew Lloyd Webber – written to accompany this action film starring Jon Voight, based on the spy thriller by Frederick Forsythe. About half the soundtrack is classical tunes or traditional German numbers – but there's also some nice electric funk tunes that more than make the album worth checking out, played by a small combo with some great keyboard work! The slowly funky tunes have a dope soundtrack feel and a bit of a CTI touch – and titles include "Miller's Theme", "Miller Joins The Odessa", and "Odessa Discovery" – all of which are nice weird funky tunes!

Even after all these years, the BBC is still a magical place of experimentation and new discovery – as you'll hear in this special release of recordings from the Late Junction programme on Radio 3! The show strives to bring together artists with different backgrounds – and gives them the space and resources to create new music together – sounds that span scenes and styles, while crossing music and national borders – in collaborations that are as breathtaking as they are beautiful! The album opens up with plenty of surprises – and titles include "People Folk" by Tinariwen and Tunng, "Citius Altius" by Simon Fisher Turner and Martin Baker, "Where The Heart Is" by Kate Tempest and Elysian String Quartet, "Piece No 5" by John Paul Jones and Erland Dahlen, "Drilling An Ocean For You" by AGF and Gudrun Gut, "Greenwich Pier" by Ana Silvera and Maya Youssef, and "Talibe" by Diabel Cisscokho, Dadialy Koyate, and Finn Peters.

Pure brilliance from start to finish – especially the second side of the record, which has a continuous run of tunes that's very unique – and still completely sublime all these many years later! The album shows the fracturing ideas of the group, but crafted together with a unity you won't find on The White Album or Let It Be – still a way of making it all gel together beautifully, as the fab four stretch their wings to find new ways of being. Added instrumentation is used wonderfully – never overdone, but with orchestral passages that can really hammer home the best musical moments – and titles include "I Want You", "Because", "You Never Give Me Your Money", "Golden Slumbers", "The End", "Her Majesty", "Polythene Pam", and "Sun King".

✨✧ Earl & Carl Grubbs – The VisitorsRebirth ... LP
Muse, 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Wonderful work from the vastly-overlooked team of Earl and Carl Grubbs – two incredibly soulful players from Philly who really carried on a tremendous post-Coltrane legacy. Earl plays tenor and Carl plays alto – and the record shines with that rare Traneish approach to free creative soloing and spirituality, in a mode that we'd reserve for an elite group of work, such as the early albums by Gary Bartz on Milestone, or some of the better 70s group recordings of Andrew White. The whole album's fantastic – with backing by Kenny Barron, Buster Williams, and Albert Heath – and it's got a sense of majesty that's simply stunning for two players who've never really made the pages of jazz history as well as they should have. Titles include "Gone Are The Days", "Glad to Be Sad", "Black Smoke", "Love Is Magic", and "Two Wives". LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Note, 1960s. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A collection of some of Freddie Hubbard's great early to mid 60s output for Blue Note, compiled and released in 1975 during a time when a number of his LPs were no longer available (not unlike these days . . .). While Freddie would cut great sides throughout his career, some of his fieriest playing was during this time, and he's joined by a batch of greats who are definitely there to deliver the message too, including James Spaulding, Hank Mobley, Wayne Shorter, McCoy Tyner, Philly Joe Jones and ELvin Jones, amongst others (these tunes were pulled from the Crisis, Breaking Point and Hub Cap sessions). 13 tracks in all: "Crisis", "I Wish I Knew", "Hub Cap", "Luana", "Weaver Of Dreams", "Blue Frenzy", "Jodo", "Cry Me Not", "One Mint Julep", "Mirrors", "Breaking Point", "Blue For Brenda" and "All Or Nothing At All".
