✨✧ John BarryDove (with bonus tracks) ... CD
ABC/Intrada, 1974. New Copy ... $19.99
A cool little score from John Barry – quite different from his usual soundtrack material, with a breezy sort of style that really fits the spirit of this sailing film! Instrumentation is often a light blend of strings and keyboards – a bit of electric harpsichord or melodica at points, which is especially cool – plus some occasional woodwind moments at more dramatic moments, often used to underscore the mood of a piece. Barry's still got that great sense of space and timing he developed at the end of the 60s – a real musical maturation that almost echoes some Italian styles at points. Titles include "The Motorbike & The Dove", "Alone On The Wide Wide Sea", "Porpoise Escort", "Xing Mombila", "After The Fire", "Patty & Robin", and "Hitch-Hike to Darwin" – plus "Sail The Summer Winds", sung by Lyn Paul. CD features lots of bonus tracks too – 8 unreleased mono score tracks, and 3 more stereo tracks from the album sessions too. CD

John Barry/Elephant's Memory/The Groop/NilssonMidnight Cowboy ... LP
United Artists, 1969. Very Good- ... $3.99
A sublime soundtrack from John Barry – common, to be sure, but also a wonderfully-crafted set that goes way beyond the stereotypes of his work for the James Bond films! The record is probably best known for Nilsson's famous version of the Fred Neil tune "Everybody's Talkin" – which is great in itself – but it's Barry's own work on the title theme that we totally love. "Midnight Cowboy" is a darkly turning slowly pondering tune that will haunt us until the day we die – performed here on the original number with a sad-tinged harmonica that unites both the country of Joe Buck's roots and the sleaze of the love generation. The tune's great – and is matched here by the whimsy of "Florida Fantasy", and the Barry tracks "Fun City" and "Science Fiction". Another great number on the set is "Old Man Willow", a really tripped-out longer track from Elephant's Memory – swirling around in organ and hippie vocals, and oddly echoing the main Barry theme of the set at times!

John Barry/Elizabeth TaylorElizabeth Taylor In London ... LP
Colpix, 1963. Sealed ... $11.99
A weird little record from John Barry – the soundtrack to a 1963 television special recorded by Elizabeth Taylor at the height of her early popularity, and featuring Taylor reciting a variety of poems and speeches over music by Barry! There's a relatively high concept feel to the album – as Barry's backings are fairly string-laden and serious, penned to match the mood of Taylor's presentation of material written by William Wordsworth, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, William Pitt, Winston Churchill, and Queen Victoria. And although Taylor speaks on about half the record, the best tracks here are actually the instrumental ones – which have more of the depth of Barry's serious soundtrack work from the time, and manage to have their own sense of presence apart from the star quality of Liz on the set. Arrangements are by Johnnie Spence, and titles include "Elizabeth", "London Theme Jazz Waltz", "Queen Elizabeth At Tilbury", "Queen Victoria", "English Garden", "The Fire Of London", "Lovers & Browning", and "London At Dawn".

John Barry/Shirley BasseyMoonraker ... LP
United Artists, 1979. Very Good- ... $4.99
Bond goes into space, but Barry stays on the ground – in one of the lesser-remembered James Bond soundtracks of the 70s! The film followed on the Star Wars boom, and had lots of space effects, but Barry keeps things mostly orchestral here – not going for the electronics or sound effects you might think. Shirley Bassey sings 2 versions of the "Moonraker" theme – one straight and one disco – and titles include "Bond Smells A Rat", "Bond Lured To Pyramid", "Bond Arrives In Rio", "Flight Into Space", and "Space Lazer Battle".

John Barry/Tom JonesThunderball ... LP
United Artists, 1965. Sealed ... $13.99
One of the greatest of Barry's scores for the James Bond films – early enough to be raw, but confident enough to change up the mood nicely! The theme song features vocals by Tom Jones – and the rest of the tunes almost reads as a who's who of hipster influences, as so many of them have been taken up by other artists as band or album names. Titles include "Mr Kiss Kiss Bang Bang", "Thunderball", "The Bomb", "Chateau Flight", "Bond Below Disco Volante", "Death Of Fiona", and "Switching The Body". LP, Vinyl record album

Hot Milk (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 7 x 7 inch ... $58.99
Rare work from Barry Brown – all material arranged and produced by Linval Thompson – including singles, dubs, and unreleased album tracks! There's a really unified feel to the work, despite the space of a few years – given that the Roots Radics handled backings at the Channel One studio, and Scientist mixed all the tracks at King Tubby's – with a nice dub undercurrent that really helps the rhythms float and dip along with Brown's vocals. Titles include "Please Officer (version)", "Ketch A Fire", "Can't Stop Natty Dread", "Free Dreadlocks", "Life Is So Funny", "Love Jah So", "Love Is Pure", and "You Don't Know Who To Trust (version)". 14 tracks on 7 singles – all packaged in a limited box! 7-inch, Vinyl record

No Business (Lithuania), 2015. New Copy ... $22.99
Sublime solo bass from Barry Guy – one of the first musicians to really set the instrument free in improvised music, and still one of the best! The album presents a live performance done in a church in Vilnius in 2009 – and has Guy's incredible sounds echoing out wonderfully throughout – a range of sounds that are very well-captured by the recording quality – from close, careful moments on the surface of the strings – to boldly resonant passages that have a real sense of majesty!

RCA, Mid 60s. Very Good ... $11.99
The LP that followed up Barry's classic pop folk track "Eve Of Destruction". The track still sends a shiver up our spines – probably more because we've seen it used in a million documentaries, than because of any actual power in the song. Still, it's a darn groovy track, and the LP has a number of other nice ones written by P.F. Sloan, including "Mr. Man On The Street (act 1)", "What's Exactly the Matter With Me", and "The Sins Of A Family". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Danny PearsonBarry White Presents Mr Danny Pearson ... LP
Unlimited Gold, 1978. Very Good ... $9.99
A lost treasure from Barry White – the one and only album recorded by Danny Pearson, one of the few singers that Barry did as "special projects" during the 70s! Like Gloria Scott and Tom Brock – two other White-produced singers of the time – Pearson's got a wonderful approach that's quite different than Barry's own work – a fragile, sensitive, sweet soul style that's a lot like indie work from the New Jersey/Philly scene of the early 70s, produced with a bit more of the Barry White flair. The sound is sublime – with magical orchestrations by White and Gene Page, wrapped lovingly around Pearson's great vocals. Titles include "Honey Please, Can't You See?", "What's Your Sign Girl?", "Is It Really True Girl", and "Walkin In the Rain With The One I Love". LP, Vinyl record album

Outta Sight (UK), 1963/1966. New Copy ... $8.99
An early 60s groover from Barry White – done when he was a fresh studio talent on the LA scene – but clearly one for a great ear for soul! The tune's got a raw, raspy vibe you wouldn't expect – a tight vamping groove, and some tremendous vocals rolling out over the front! "It Hurts Me" features Sammy Lee in the lead – and the tune has this great party vibe with voices at the start – which Lee then calls back and forth with in the lyrics – which creates a festive, in-crowd sort of groove! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ ArchiesSunshine ... LP
Kirshner, 1970. Very Good ... $4.99
Believe it or not, the 4th album by The Archies – and one that's way past the early hits that first got them started! The sound here stands out surprisingly well on its own – with less of the cartoony references of the past, and more of a Sunshiney Pop quality that we like a lot. The tunes are still kind of playfully sing-song, in a way that would have worked with the kids, but the overall themes are a bit deeper too. Jeff Barry produced, and titles include "A Summer Prayer For Peace", "Sunshine", "Who's Gonna Love Me", "Mr Factory", "Love & Rock & Roll Music", "Over & Over", "Waldo P Emerson Jones", and "Suddenly Susan".

Kenny BarronFlight Path ... CD
Candid (UK), Early 90s. New Copy ... $9.99 11.98
Some of the best moments from Kenny Barron's early 90s run on Candid Records – a stretch that really set the stage for the pianist's big return to the limelight in the latter part of the decade – but still retained all the relaxed, easygoing charm of his less-recorded 80s years. Barron's in great company throughout – often groups that are a bit more than a trio – augmented by musicians who include Gary Bartz on alto, Claudio Roditi on trumpet, Steve Hobbs on vibes, and Donald Harrison on alto – and Kenny also plays solo on one track, and in duet with pianist Barry Harris on another. Titles include a great reworking of Blue Mitchell's "Fungii Mama", plus "Pedra Bonita", "Dreams", "Flight Path", "Slow Grind", "So What", "Pent Up House", and "My Old Flame". CD

Les Baxter/Mike Curb/The 13th PowerWild In The Streets ... LP
Tower, Late 60s. Very Good Gatefold ... $4.99
Hilarious! This is the soundtrack to a goofy late 60s shocker film about the time when hippies and young folks would take over America. Les Baxter handled the musical score for the film, but the real treat is the schlocky rock tracks – written by Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil, with arrangements by Mike Curb in that fuzzy Tower/AIP mode! The lyrics are hysterical, but also oddly catchy, even though they're trying to make fun of 60s rock. Titles include "Psychedelic Senate", "Fourteen Or Fight", "Wild In The Streets", "Sally LeRoy", and "Free Lovin". LP, Vinyl record album

The BCG is the Bob Crewe Generation – a sweet 70s disco ensemble led by the 60s soundtrack king. Here, they've got a tightly percolated sound that reminds us of Barry White at his best – strings soaring over strong syncopation, with some chorus female vocals bubbling in amidst the glossy funky mix. Very nice, and with a wonderful classic club feel! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Bixio-Frizzi-TemperaLa Preda (Japanese paper sleeve edition – with bonus track) ... CD
Cinevox/Disques Dessinee (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $14.99
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.

✨✧ Paul BleyBallads ... CD
ECM (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... $19.99
Early ECM work from Paul Bley – a great example of the way that label helped Bley find a new voice in his music during the 70s! Although issued in 1971, the session was actually recorded a few years before – in 1967 – and done with a very spare, very open approach to the piano – one that was still extremely fresh at the time, and which is handled better by Bley than by most, especially on a few of the more dramatic moments. All tracks here are trio tracks – with Barry Altschul on drums, and either Gary Peacock or Mark Levinson on bass – and the three long tracks on the album were all composed by Annette Peacock, and include "Ending", "Circles", and "So Hard It Hurts".

Solomon BurkeChess Collection ... CD
Chess (UK), Mid 70s. Used ... $8.99
Most people think of Solomon Burke, and they immediately go to his famous Atlantic recordings of the 60s – but it's a little known fact that Burke worked for Chess Records in the mid 70s – at a time when the label was barely still moving forward, and in a mode that's quite different than most of Solomon's other records! The Burke of the 70s first started out even rootsier than in the 60s – but by the time he reached Chess, Solomon picked up a sweet mellow groove and started to recast his image as a sexy large man – one who's very much in the spirit of Barry White! These sides are pulled from the albums Music To Make Love By and Back To My Roots – both records that pick up a warmer, sweeter, more 70s mellow kind of mode – one that often slinks along at a slowish pace, but sometimes grooves things up a bit for the clubs. Burke sings, but also often speaks – in a deeply seductive voice that's totally great – and the CD is a long-overdue look at these surprisingly great sides! Package features 20 tracks in all – including "All The Way", "You & Your Baby Blues", "Music To Make Love By", "Let Me Wrap My Arms Around You", "Burning For Your Love", "Midnight & You", "Thanks I Needed That", "The Do Right Song", "Over & Over", "I'll Never Stop Loving You", "Love's Paradise", "Life Has Its Ups & Downs", and "Precious Flower".

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". CD

Mark ColbySerpentine Fire/One Good Turn ... CD
Tappan Zee/Expansion (UK), 1978/1979. New Copy ... $16.99
A pair of sweet funky fusion gems from Mark Colby – back to back on a single CD! Serpentine Fire is an overlooked gem from Bob James' Tappan Zee empire of the 70s – that label that provided the perfect platform for artists to grow a bit more after the CTI years! Reedman Mark Colby is a newcomer to this scene, but hits a groove that's instantly in the best CTI/Kudu mode – with funky jazz backings that often have that laidback, spacious style that's more soulful than jamming fusion – served up by players who include Bob James on Fender Rhodes and piano, Eric Gale and Steve Khan on guitars, Steve Gadd on drums, and Hiram Bullock on some electric guitar. Colby himself plays tenor and soprano sax – and titles include a nice remake of Earth Wind & Fire's "Serpentine Fire" – plus "King Tut", "Renegade", "On & On", and "Daydreamer". On One Good Turn, reedman Mark Colby really comes into his own – crafting sweet lines on tenor and soprano sax, in modes that extend previous 70s fusion work from artists like Stanley Turrentine or Grover Washington Jr! Like both of those giants, Colby gets great backing here in a spacious electric style that allows plenty of room for the solos in the lead – with artists who include Bob James and Barry Miles on Fender Rhodes, Eric Gale and Steve Khan on guitars, and Mike Mainieri on vibes. Titles include "Capativa", "Village Zoo", "Peace Of Mind", "Skat Talk", and "Macbeth". CD

Chick's out on this one – way out – in that free mode of his first great rise to fame, without any of the silly Scientology of later years – and Holland and Altschul are in some of their greatest form ever, working with Chick to craft a starkly compelling album of tunes that showed that jazz piano still had a lot of room to grow at the start of the 70s! Titles include "Toy Room", "Ballad I", "Flesh", "Rhymes", and "Nefertitti". CD

The core group here features James on harmonica and vocals – backed by piano, guitar, bass, and drums – plus a great horn section that has a distinct Chess Records feel – no surprise, given that it features Gene Barge, Paul Serrano, and Louis Satterfield! The production is by Barry Goldberg and Mike Bloomfield – and they're clearly helping Cotton tighten up his groove – and almost hit some Atlantic soul-styled modes at times. Titles include "Knock On Wood", "Sweet Sixteen", "Feelin Good", "Off The Wall", "Good Time Charlie", "Turn On Your Lovelight", "Something On Your Mind", and "Don't Start Me Talkin".

Bob CreweComplete Elektra Recordings (Street Talk/Motivation/bonus tracks) ... CD
Elektra/Real Gone, Mid 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $23.99 26.98
The complete mid 70s comeback years from the great Bob Crewe – the 60s pop powerhouse who found a whole new style in the disco generation! Street Talk has Bob Crewe stretching out in an album-length concept setting – one that draws heavily on the best disco styles of the time, and which tells the tale of a young boy from the Midwest, making the scene on the west coast during the post-Stonewall years. The sound is surprisingly great – not the cheesy throwaway pop disco you'd expect for such a set – and instead this really well-crafted larger orchestral approach to grooving, drawn hevily from Crewe's contemporaneous forays into soul with Kenny Nolan. Bob sings some of the lead vocals himself, and the album also features lyrics from Richard Mirayes, Jon Joyce, and Lu Ann Simms – on titles that include "Cherry Boy", "Back Alley Boogie", "Menage A Trois", "Ah Men", and "Time For You & Me". Next up is the album Motivation. Bob Crewe is a long way from his 60s Four Seasons and Barbarella territory here – but still has all of his best strengths of arranging very firmly in hand! The album is one of Crew's mid 70s disco reinventions – and has the maestro working in a surprisingly strong soul mode, with help from a large choir called the Voices Of Inspiration – who work alongside the lead vocals from John Arrias, singing in a flanged-out style that reminds us of Nick DeCaro's 70s vocal work, but more towards a soul style. Production is by Jerry Wexler and Barry Beckett – and some of the album was recorded in Muscle Shoals, with a deeper vibe than you might expect. Titles include "Motivation", "Lady Love Song", "Give It Hell", "In Another Life", and "Merci Beaucoup". 2CD set features 9 more bonus tracks – different single and promo versions of tracks on the albums!

Electric Flag/Paul BeaverTrip – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Sidewalk/Curb, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $17.99 19.98
One of the trippiest soundtracks of the 60s – a wonderful blend of psych tracks from The Electric Flag, and moogier electronic moments from the great Paul Beaver! The Flag are at their best here – playing tunes that move from short bursts of fuzz to longer jams – laid out with great work from Mike Bloomfield and Nick Gravenites on guitars, Barry Goldberg on organ, and Buddy Miles on drums – with a nice sense of arrangement and juxtaposition that rivals Spirit's equally great soundtrack material for Model Shop. This one's more of an all-out rocker – although the moog balances things out nicely – and the whole thing's definitely a cut above the usual thrown-together exploitation soundtrack of the period. There's lots of little crazy cuts, and a long one called "Fine Jung Thing" – plus the titles "Gettin' Hard", "Peter Gets Off", "The Other Ed Norton", "Psyche Soap", and "Joint Passing".

Gil Evans OrchestraInto The Hot ... CD
Impulse (Japan), 1961. New Copy ... $14.99
The harder of the two Gil Evans albums on Impulse to find, and the best – really far-reaching material that has Evans coming into contact with some of the hippest jazz players of his generation! The record's got three incredible tracks written by Cecil Taylor – a very bold move for Evans, given Taylor's strongly out reputation even at this point in his career – and possibly even more bold, given that Taylor's on the tracks playing piano, alongside players who include Archie Shepp, Jimmy Lyons, Sonny Murray, and Henry Grimes. The material's fantastic, and is a key part of Taylor's work at the time, and shows a very different setting for his piano – a bit of tension with the larger Evans group, in a way that's almost more compelling than his own early dates as a leader! Taylor titles include "Pots", "Bulbs", and "Mixed". The other tracks on the album were written by John Carisi, who wrote the classic "Israel" for Miles Davis' nine piece group in the late 40s – but who here contributes "Moon Taj", "Angkor Wat", and "Barry's Tune". Carisi's tracks are a bit more subdued, but no less wonderful – and arrangements are by Taylor and Carisi, of their own music, presented with the Evans modern touch. If you ever needed a record to convince you that Gil Evans was a genius, this is it! CD

✨✧ Richard EvansRichard's Almanac ... LP
Argo, 1959. Very Good+ ... $16.99
A rare early trio session from bassist Richard Evans – known much more famously for his late 60s soul and jazz arrangements at Chess! The set's not only unique for it's exposure of Evans as a jazz artist, but it also marks one of the first appearances of pianist Jack Wilson – still a part of the Chicago scene at the time of this album, but already playing with the fluid lyricism we love so much from his 60s LA recordings! Wilson's piano is a really key part of the record, and he works a groove that's simply sublime – filled with lots of flowing, gliding touches on the top of the keys, but also coming across with enough of a bottom to give the record plenty of soul! The drummer in the group is Robert Barry, another noteworthy south sider at the time – and titles include "Consu", "The Preacher", "Trees", "Vera", "Should I", and "Daybreak". Nice cover, too, with a young Evans sitting in front of a globe! LP, Vinyl record album

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".
