John BarryKnack & How To Get It ... LP LP format
United Artists, 1965. Very Good+ ... $14.99
An incredibly groovy soundtrack that's also one of the best-ever scores written by John Barry – a masterpiece of jazzy scoring that never gets old! There's some wicked use of Hammond in the main theme – played by Brit jazzer Alan Haven – a catchy little groove that dances nicely as the record unfolds – over rhythms that feature a snapping snare that's equally great! Barry brings in just a touch of the James Bond boldness, then mixes it with these warmer jazz leanings – all in a blend that's quite unique, and which easily makes the score one of our favorites of the 60s. A young Michael Crawford sings a great vocal version of the theme – "The Knack" – and other tracks include "Photo Strip", "Doors & Bikes & Things", "Ecstasy", "Three On A Bed", and "Blues & Out".

John BarryWrong Box ... LP LP format
Mainstream, 1966. Sealed ... $29.99
One of the lesser-known John Barry scores of the 60s – penned for an equally lesser-known comedy that starred Michael Caine, Peter Sellers, Peter Cook, Tony Hancock, and Dudley Moore! The tunes have kind of a period feel with slight whimsical touches – not as mod and groovy as you might expect for the time, or for Barry – but with a strong orchestral approach overall, showing John's ability to work well in a more mainstream setting. There's a nice undercurrent of darkness at times, as on some of Barry's other orchestral work – and titles include "Morris Visits Dr Pratt", "Bournemouth Strangler", "Morris Hides As He Sees Handcart", "Montage Of Deaths", and "Yes Who Is That".

John Barry/Donna SummerDeep – Original Soundtrack (with bonus tracks) ... CD CD format
Casablanca/Hot Shot (UK), 1977. New Copy ... $9.99
Well, it's not Jaws – but it's still pretty darn groovy – a very cool set of tracks that features some long, lush orchestrations from the great John Barry – plus some sublime disco sounds from Donna Summer! The first half of the record features Barry's extended "Return To The Sea – 2033 AD" – a side-long track that really builds nicely, and has John finding some even more expressive modes than in other mid 70s soundtracks. Then side two really lets loose with the great "Theme From The Deep (Down Deep Inside)" by Donna Summer – a tune that's got this beautifully building groove that's almost like her best early cuts, ala "I Feel Love" – a great use of Summer's vocals on a nicely funky groove. The set also features a slower Donna Summer vocal take on the cut – billed as "A Love Song" – with these cool keyboard lines that feel like they're lifted from an Italian 70s soundtrack – and Barry also turns in his own instrumental version as well. Beckett sings the funky "Disco Calypso" tune too! CD features two bonus tracks – the 12" mix of Donna Summer's "Theme From The Deep", plus "The White House Years" by John Barry. CD

Warner (Australia), 1965/1966/1967. New Copy 3 CDs ... $24.99
Think you know the Bee Gees? Then think again – because this wonderful package features three of their ultra-rare albums from Australia – reissued here for the first time, and quite different the later sides we love so much! The Bee Gees didn't just arise to the charts in the disco generation – nor were they the brainchild of late 60s Atlantic Records – and instead they were an incredibly hard-working trio who got a very young start in their own scene – where the young Barry Gibb was already a hell of a talented songsmith, and provided the group with great material from their very first record. These albums don't just illustrated a group in progress – or an act waiting to grow – because honestly, if the Bee Gees never cut anything else, these records might well be enough – as you could say if you chopped off The Beatles' output right before Rubber Soul. Production is wonderful – no beat group cliches, nor American pop psych ripoffs – and the trio have already found the perfect space for their really unique harmonies. The set features three full albums with all original album sleeves – Spicks & Specks, Turn Around Look At Us, and The Bee Gees Sing & Play 14 Barry Gibb Songs – a total of 38 delightful 60s tunes!

Intakt (Switzerland), 2015. New Copy ... $18.99 19.99
Two giants of the British improvisation scene work together here in a relatively recent recording – but one that shows that the creative imaginations of both players is alive and well! In fact, the performance, recorded in 2007, almost might stand equally nice to some of the 70s recordings by either musician – especially some of Frith's most interesting sessions – and the interplay between his electric guitar and the bass of Barry Guy is really wonderful – with lots of sonorous moments from either musician, and some complicated flutters of sounds and notes that resonate wonderfully. Titles run from 20 minutes to 44 seconds in length – and tracks include "Big Flowers", "Where The Cities Gleam In Darkness", "Moments Full Of Many Lives", "Walking On Wire", "Climbing The Ladder", and "The Circus Is A Song Of Praise".

Barry WhiteCan't Get Enough ... LP LP format
20th Century, 1974. Very Good ... $3.99
Can't get enough of Barry White at this key point in his career – a time when he was stepping from the shadows as one of the most sensuous soul stars of the 70s! The album's a near-perfect effort throughout – a great blend of the soaring strings and funkier rhythms that always made Barry's work so great – topped with vocals that are both sung and spoken, all in a voice that's deeper than deep! Tracks intertwine nicely – almost sharing similar themes at points – and although not penned as a "soul symphony", the album certainly comes across like one. Titles include "Can't Get Enough Of Your Love Babe", "Oh Love Well We Finally Made It", "Mellow Mood (parts 1 & 2)", "You're The First The Las, My Everything", and "I Can't Believe You Love Me".

One of the last truly great albums that Barry White ever cut – with his solid sexy soul sound firmly in place, and a solid groove running through most of the tracks on the album. Barry's voice is still in fantastic shape, too – and it's a real treat to hear him open up on some of the longer songs. Tracks include "Girl, What's Your Name", "Oh Me, Oh My (I'm Such A Lucky Guy)", "I Can't Leave You Alone", and "Call Me, Baby". LP, Vinyl record album

Yipes, this must have been a clear indication of just how popular the show really was! The album's little more than bits lifted off the TV soundtrack – with bits that include "Why God Made Hands", "Sweety Pie Roger", "VD Day", "God is Black", and "Jury Duty". We're guessing that this one probably secretly sold more to the middle-American right wingers who were buying Barry Goldwater records a few years before – than it did to the New York liberals who could get the irony of the material.

An excellent gimmick – and yet another way that United Artists was trying to push its "Bond" catalog in the 60s! Count Basie brings a soulful swing to the work of John Barry – hitting hard on the tracks with his own smoking piano, and an orchestra filled with some of his best players, like Al Grey, Eric Dixon, and Freddie Green – as well as Eddie Lockjaw Davis, an artist who wasn't credited on the session at he time. Arrangements are by Chico O'Farrill and George Williams – and titles include "Thunderball", "From Russia With Love", "007", "Girl Trouble", and "Goldfinger". LP, Vinyl record album

Cinevox/Disques Dessinee (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $19.99
A sweet sexy soundtrack from composers Vince Tempera and Franco Bixio – put together with nice warm orchestrations from Fabio Frizzi! The scene is the mid 70s, and the trio have definitely been listening to a lot of Barry White – particularly White's Love Unlimited Orchestra, whose sound they do a great job of matching on the record – using swirling strings, slow funk rhythm, and their own cool keyboards – which brings in some nice moogy touches to the whole thing – and makes for a really unique album overall! The soundtrack ranks with the best of the best sexy Italian scores from the 70s – and titles include "La Preda", "Daniel's Tune", "Presenza Angosciante", "Ipotesi Di Orizzonte", "Violenza", and "Tranquilla Incoscienza". 15 in all – include a bonus alternate take of the title theme.

An early leader session for Jimmy Cleveland – one that pulls him out of the Lionel Hampton group, and puts him in the company of a number of different all-stars – top level players that Mercury brought together in three different sessions for the album. Players include Lucky Thompson, Cecil Payne, Barry Galbraith, Wade Legge, Paul Chambers, and Jerome Richardson – and it's the quality of the ensemble grooving that really makes the album swing, a lot more than Cleveland's solos on his own. Titles include "Vixen", "Hear Ye Hear Ye", "See Minor", "Bone Brother", "Count 'Em", and "Little Beaver". LP, Vinyl record album

A stunning set – and one of our favorite modern soul albums ever! The set was recorded at Sigma Sound Studios in 1980, and it's one of the best-ever records to come out of that hallowed hall of grooves – a one-off debut from the team of Tonee & Bill Collins, set to impeccable arrangements from the mighty John Davis! The set's not really disco – more a blend of mellow soul and midtempo club – with a sound that evokes artists like Barry White, Leon Ware, and Leroy Hutson – but which also grooves with a feel that's all its own. Nearly every cut's fantastic, and although you may know the duo's classic "Top Of The Stairs" from other collections, there's loads of other nice tracks here too – like "You Know How To Make Me Feel So Good", "Can't Turn Down Love", and "You Made Me Believe".

CAM/Beat (Italy), 1965. New Copy ... $16.99
A sweet symphony for two spies – done up in all the best jazzy crime styles of the 60s! The movie's a James Bond spoof, but the music is almost more sounds from a few years before – less John Barry orchestrations than smaller combo jazz with lots of lively touches – and instrumentation that includes Hammond, electric guitar, and some mighty nice horns! Franceso De Masi's almost in a Henry Mancini mode on the best moments – and we mean that in a good way, as the music carries some echoes of Hank's famous sounds for Mr Lucky or Peter Gunn – but with a more updated 60s approach. Titles include "Krimm Flight", "From Venice To San Francisco", "Rodeo", "Return To Frisco", "Blue Dream", and "Mexico Bossa Nova" – and CD features 7 bonus tracks too! CD

Some of the most striking Eric Dolphy work we've ever heard – a set of live performances from the years 1962 and 1963 that feature Dolphy in a free-thinking mode that surpasses even the modernism of his classic studio sides! The recordings feature Dolphy amidst a variety of players – including a number of unlikely suspects like Barry Galbraith, Eddie Costa, and Jim Hall – and although some of the tracks have a moody and introspective third stream quality (3 of the numbers are written by Gunther Schuller), others are quite open, and almost have an ESP-like intensity. One longer title is a jam session take on Charlie Parker's "Donna Lee" – recorded with a lineup that includes Phil Woods, Nick Travis, Benny Golson, Don Ellis, and Lalo Schifrin! Other titles include "Iron Man", "Half Note Triplets", "Densities", and "Night Music". CD

Bob Downes Open MusicFive Trios ... CD CD format
Bob Downes Music/Openian (Germany), 1970s. Used ... $8.99
Amazing work from British reedman Bob Downes – a host of previously-unissued 70s recordings, all of them trio numbers with a wonderfully stripped-down feel! Downes is possibly best known for his larger group experiments of the Open Music years – but here, he comes across as much more of a cutting-edge jazzman – blowing a variety of reeds, including flute, tenor, alto, and soprano saxes (sometimes simultaneously!) – with only just bass and drums to back him up! Yet as with most of Bob's other recordings from the time, there's a wonderful sense of rhythm to these cuts – never too free, and always with an inherent groove that hangs somewhere between the modal and the harmelodic. The drummer on all cuts is Denis Smith, and bassists include Barry Guy, Jeff Clyne, and Marc Meggido – on tracks that include "Bamboo Blaze", "Spooks", "Living It Up In Rio", "Desert Waltz", "Circus", "Moonstruck", and "Ghosts In Space".

More amazing work from the legendary Bob Downes – the British reedman/arranger/composer who's getting really rediscovered these days – represented here in a host of previously unissued tracks! Bob put together the package from his vaults, and we've got to say that the music here is every bit as wonderful as anything Downes released back in the day – and is perhaps overall maybe even more striking, as most of it is played by a trio that features Bob on flutes, tenor, alto, and soprano saxes, with Barry Guy on bass and Denis Smith on drums! There's a great groove on many numbers – kind of a modal, soulful bounce that really has us appreciating Guy's bass work from a whole new direction – especially since we've mostly known him as a more avant player. And Downes is as creatively as compelling as ever – even playing "simultaneous saxes" at one point in the record! Titles include "Seashore", "West Eleven", "Walkin Runnin Man", "Funky Groove (parts 1 & 2)", "Brasilian Beauty", and "Wavelength". CD

The instrument is kind of a bigger version of a flugelhorn – and is used by Don in a laidback combo that also features trombone from Billy Byers, trumpet from Howie Reich, and baritone sax from Danny Bank – all deep sounds that set up a bank of color for Elliott to work with in his most vivid way. Other players include Hal McKusick on alto and flute – but working without as much of the sharper, cutting tones of other 50s albums – and rhythm is from Barry Galbraith on guitar, Milt Hinton on bass, and Mel Zelnick on drums. Titles include "Sposin", "The Lamp Is Low", "Mellophone Mambo", "Summer Setting", and "With The Wind & The Rain In Your Hair". CD

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!

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".

A movie that's so familiar, we sometimes forget the greatness of its soundtrack! True, the film did give the world a few big hits from Barry Manilow, but the instrumental score by Charles Fox is mighty nice – a great blend of 70s cop/crime modes with a few tenser moments – orchestrated wonderfully with this approach that's still very classic in its instrumentation, while sparkling with just a few slight contemporary elements. And away from the performances on the screen, the music almost sounds even classier – elevated past PG comedy realm, into the range of classic film score! As usual, Intrada's done a great job with the notes – and titles include "Beware Of The Dwarf", "Help", "Love Theme", "Gloria Falls For Trap", "Foul Play Disco", "Scarface", and "Houseboat".

MPS/Edel (Germany), 1970. New Copy ... $14.99
Not a free jazz set – as you might guess from the title – but an excellent mix of funk and rock elements with the sweet electric style of MPS jazz – a totally hip, slightly psych album that sits well with the label's classics from artists like Dave Pike or Dee Dee, Barry & The Movements! Like the MPS gem from that latter group, this one features vocals – from drummer and group leader Lyndon Berg – a nom-du-date for Udo Lindenberg, who'd later join Passport – and an artist who's equally comfortable in the worlds of jazz, rock, and soul – after years getting drenched in the German beat scene of the 60s. The group also features strong work from trombonist Peter Herbholzheimer – and the record is not unlike some of his own later records for MPS, although this set has vocals. Udo sings on most tracks, and drums like a funky mofo throughout – and titles include "Big Family", "I'll Make You Love Me", "Flying Windmill", "Keep On Dreaming", "What Color Has The Soul", and "Never Felt So Free".

MGM/Intrada, 1966/1967. New Copy ... $19.99
A pair of spy spoof gems – back to back on a single CD! First up is Our Man Flint, which features excellent soundtrack work by Jerry Goldsmith – possibly his greatest ever! Jerry's usually a bit staid with some of his scores – but working here on the soundtrack to this James Coburn spy spoof film, he's truly fantastic! The approach mixes strings and bossa-inflected grooves with some spookier instrumental touches – either on electric guitar, sax, or a "tortured" Thomas organ and a Solovox – and the overall feel of the album is on a par with the best work of the sort by Lalo Schifrin or Hugo Montenegro! Titles include "Doing As The Romans Did", "All I Have To Do Is Take A Bite of Your Apple?", "Tell Me More About That Volcano", and "Our Man Flint". In Like Flint continues Jerry Goldsmith's great run of grooves for the Flint spy spoof films of the 60s – working in a style that's a lot more complex than Lalo Schifrin or John Barry, but still every bit as groovy! Goldsmith's got this excellent style of swirling together strings, instrumental solos, and lots of cool offbeat elements – all with a sound that's often jazzy, but pretty unusual too – maybe in the best territory of Piero Piccioni over on the Italian scene! Arrangements are by Marty Paich and Warren Barker – who bring their most playful modes to the album – and titles include the vocal numbers "Where The Bad Guys Are Gals" and "Your Zowie Face", plus "Ahh Yer Father's Bob-Lip", "Mince & Cook Until Tender", and "Lost In Space".

Hutcherson's sound really transforms the session, giving it a shimmering middleground that disperses the dominance that Gordon's tenor usually has – and creating a warm, fluid feel that's really great. Barry Harris is in the group on piano – providing some wonderful accompaniment that's a great fit for Hutcherson's vibes – and the rest of the group is completed by the excellent rhythm section of Bob Cranshaw on bass and Billy Higgins on drums! The album includes a great version of "Manha de Carnaval", plus a Dex original, "Le Coiffeur" – and the tracks "Heartaches", "Who Can I Turn To", and "Everybody's Somebody's Fool".

A really unique album from the great Etta Jones – a session recorded down in Muscle Shoals, and not in Chicago – a setting that gives James an extra sort of deep soul power! The backing is nicely different than some of the other Chess material – killer work from the legendary Fame Studios lineup that included Barry Beckett on organ, Charles Chalmers on tenor, and Roger Hawkins on drums – all coming together with the great Rick Hall at the production helm! Etta's back in hard-belting R&B-tinged territory here – a bit more sophisticated than the 50s, with a good mix of hard soul numbers and ballads, opening up in some southern territory that really suits her well. Titles include "The Same Rope", "Watch Dog", "Tell Mama", "I'd Rather Go Blind", "Just A Little Bit", and "Don't Lose Your Good Thing". LP, Vinyl record album

One of the best of the blacksploitation scores of the early 70s – a masterpiece of music that we rate every bit as high as Shaft or Superfly – maybe even higher! The music here is incredible – a surprising funky turn for JJ Johnson, who most folks know for his straighter jazz work – and like Marvin Gaye, Barry White, and others who were surprising the world with their ability to score music for a full film during the early 70s, JJ really knocks it out of the park with this one – coming up with a batch of tunes that are a wonderful mix of sophisticated scoring, creative instrumentation, and some damn funky grooves! The title cut features Joe Simon on vocals, and Millie Jackson sings on the cuts "Love Doctor" and "It Hurts So Good". The rest of the set is instrumental, and other cuts include an instrumental take on "Cleopatra Jones", plus "Go Chase Cleo", "Goin To The Chase", "Wrap Up", and "Airport Fight".
