Archie BellI Never Had It So Good ... LP
Becket, 1981. Very Good ... $7.99
By this point in his career, Archie's recording without the Drells, and has moved from Philly International onto the smaller Becket label in New York. However, he's still recording in a very similar style to his late 70s work in Philly – with a smooth grooving sound that's very seductive on the dancefloor, and which continues Archie's forays into sophisticated modern soul. One of the best cuts is "Harder & Harder", a midtempo tune with nice jazzy touches on sax and piano, smooth vocals from Archie, and a hook that hangs the whole thing together! Other tracks include "Don't Wait for The World", "Why Didja Do Me", "Without You", and "I Never Made Love". LP, Vinyl record album

New Archie Bell & The DrellsHard Not To Like It ... LP
Philadelphia International, 1977. Very Good+ ... $7.99
One of the strong Philly LPs by Archie Bell and the Drells (and they really did make the transition to Philly pretty well). Side one has some of their more blatent attempts to appeal to the then hot disco crowd, but side two has them back in a great easy soul two-step sound, like "It's Hard Not To Like You", "There's No Other Like You" and "Real Good Feeling".

William BellComing Back For More ... LP
Mercury, 1977. Sealed ... $6.99
A really wonderful post-Stax album from the great William Bell – a set that has the singer still stepping out with all those great deep soul modes from the 60s, but also finding a hipper, more laidback approach as well! There's a beautiful mellow vibe to the record – one that recalls some of Millie Jackson's best ballad work of the time, especially in the way it warms things up with a bit of class, while taking away none of the power of the vocals. Bell produced and arranged the whole set with help from Paul Mitchell – and there's still lots of nice down home themes and feelings to the record, but William's also working with a bubbling groove that comes off great – and which updates his sound without selling his soul – making for a great set in the modern/southern mode. Titles include "Tryin To Love Two", "If Sex Was All We Had", "Relax", "You Don't Miss Your Water", "Coming Back For More", "Just Another Way To Feel", and "I Absotively Posolutely Love You".

William BellWow . . . William Bell ... LP
Stax, 1971. Good+ ... $14.99
An album that definitely earns the "wow" in its title – as it makes us sit up and take new notice of William Bell's talents! Although Bell's best known for his earliest Memphis hits, he really changed a lot near the end of the 60s – evolving into a hipper, more mature singer capable of reaching new heights with his vocals – and touching on themes that go way beyond the early years. Part of the strength of the record is also due to the production – a full, proud effort helmed by Al Bell – and featuring contributions from a galaxy of Memphis and Muscle Shoals talents who include The Bar-Kays, Booker T, Eddie Hinton, and The Memphis Horns! Titles include the amazing track "I Forgot To Be Your Lover" – a number that really redefined William's sound – plus "You'll Want Diamonds", "I Can't Make It", "All For The Love Of A Woman", "My Door Is Always Open", and "I Can't Make It (All By Myself)".

MCA, 1990. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A second chapter for boy band 80s soul! After Bobby Brown set off on his own, the remaining three members of New Edition decided to remain a group and give it a go, and far from being a sad collection of the leftover members, their debut album was actually one of many successful New Jack Swing efforts the group would produce! Given a helping hand from the Shocklee brothers on production, this set includes "Poison", "Do Me!", "Ronnie, Bobby, Ricky, Mike, Ralph & Johnny (Word To The Mutha!)", "She's Dope!", "BBD (I Thought It Was Me)?", "When Will I See You Again?" and "Ain't Nut'in Changed!"

New 5th DimensionIndividually & Collectively ... LP
Bell, 1972. Very Good Gatefold ... $2.99
An early 70s treasures from The 5th Dimension – continuing the group's amazing run from the late 60s onward – a sublime blend of the group's great harmonies with standout lead vocals – all produced by Bones Howe, and arranged with help from from Bob Alcivar and Bill Holman! There's a growing sophistication in the set that we really like – a deeper, more personal feel on some of the lyrics – especially some of the more "adult" styled numbers that always showed that the group was way more than just a simple pop machine. Tracks include a scatting vocal version of the Johnny Alf bossa groover "Sky & Sea", plus "I Didn't Get To Sleep At All", "All Kinds Of People", "Tomorrow Belongs To The Children", "Turn Around To Me", "Band Of Gold", and "Border Song".

Gladys Knight & The PipsIn The Beginning ... LP
Bell, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Really great pre-Motown music from Gladys Knight & The Pips – a collection of early singles that were issued by Vee Jay and the Fire/Fury labels, but which already show the group head and shoulders above most of their contemporaries! Many of these cuts are from the start of the 60s, and show the quartet working out the first modes of group soul in a really great way – balancing Gladys' strong lead with sublime harmonies from The Pips – often set to some excellent early compositions from Van McCoy, who gives the group a great deal of class right from the start. Titles include "Letter Full Of Tears", "Either Way I Lose", "Giving Up", "Stop & Get A Hold Of Myself", "Tell Her You're Mine", "Lovers Always Forgive", "Every Beat Of My Heart", and "Operator".

5th Dimension5th Dimension Live! ... LP
Bell, 1971. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
A groovy little live album from The 5th Dimension – not nearly as smoothly polished as their studio albums, in a way that really makes the set stand out nicely! The vocals are still completely top-shelf – a heavenly sound that's hard to believe comes from five mere mortals – but the musical backings are a bit more rough-edged and soul-based – a harder groove than the group gets on their full albums, in a way that provides a great contrast to the harmonies on the lyrics! There's also a great sense of "liveness" to the set – patter from the group before the tunes, and some upbeat medleys of some of their bigger hits – strung together in ways that are a lot nicer than just simple live remakes of familiar songs. Titles include "I Just Want To Be Your Friend", "Eli's Coming", "Never My Love", "Shake Your Tambourine", "Ode To Billie Joe", "I Want To Take You Higher", and two longer medleys of hits!

New Al GreenAl Green ... LP
Bell, 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Al Green's first LP – with a very different feel than his later work on Hi. The record's got a harder southern soul groove – almost in a Wilson Pickett/Arthur Conley mode, but with some sweeter elements in the backing. Al's voice is still incredible, although different than later, in that he's singing with a really open vibe, letting himself go a bit more, and not keeping in that smooth sophisticated mode of later years. Originally released by the tiny Hot Line label, and issued here by Bell Records when Al started to hit big with Hi Records during the early 70s. Titles include "Back Up Train", "Get Yourself Together", "Don't Leave Me", "Let Me Help You", "Hot Wire", and "Stop & Check Myself". LP, Vinyl record album

Bell, Mid 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A strangely beautiful record recorded during Pee Wee Russell's brief comeback as a modernist folk hero during the 60s. As with a number of his other sessions from the time, Russell's tone is amazingly angular, with strange off-kilter notes that expose the genius that had been lurking for years behind playing that was otherwise fairly straightforward. Titles include "The Lady's In Love", "I'm In The Market For You", and "Pee Wee's Song" – and the group is a quintet with Nat Pierce on piano and Steve Jordan on guitar. LP, Vinyl record album

Blue MinkReal Mink ... LP
Philips, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $4.99
One of the first albums from Blue Mink – a seminal rock/soul crossover act who really broke bigger in the 70s! The album's strongest asset is singer Madeline Bell, who works in duet form with group leader Roger Cook on most numbers – bringing the record a strongly soulful component that really helps sell some of its beat group leanings. And in the instrumentation department, the group here have plenty of touches from the late 60s Brit beat scene – including strong presence of organ and electric piano, lots of jamming guitar, and an overall approach to the groove that's strongly influenced by American soul and R&B, but which also has jazzy touches. Titles include "Good Morning Freedom", "Gimme Reggae", "Can You Feel It Baby", "Our World", "Sweet & Sour", "I Lose The Game", and "Silk What?". LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie Davis/Charlie VenturaBattle Of Saxes ... LP
King, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $29.99
Tremendous tenor work from both parties involved – but especially from Eddie Davis, who always sounds wonderful on his early sides for King! Davis has a clear, clean tone that's totally great – and given the short space of these tunes, he really gets a lot done with a little – in a tight way that's somewhat different than his later sides for Prestige. Backing on the Davis sides includes some organ – probably by Shirley Scott – and titles include "Mean To Me", "All Of You", "Out Of Nowhere", "All God's Chillun Got Rhythm", and "If I Were A Bell". Charlie Ventura's great too – a bit more modern, almost, than on some of his better-known sides – and playing with a mean, lean, boppish tone. Ventura titles include "Liza", "Give Me The Simple Life", "If I Had You", and "I Can't Give You Anything But Love". LP, Vinyl record album

The set includes tracks like "Theme From The Valley Of The Dolls", "It Must Be Him", "The Eyes Of Love", "The Look Of Love", and "A Man and A Woman" – all done in a cool spacey theatre organ way, and with a nice 60's backing that keeps the sound from getting too stiff. Lots of the tracks have odd settings on the organ – like its flute or bell effects. LP, Vinyl record album

FunkadelicCosmic Slop ... LP
Westbound, 1973. Very Good Gatefold ... $34.99
One of our favorite early Funkadelic albums – and a real turning point for the group! Gone are the trippier guitar solos of earlier days, and in their place is a tighter approach to funk – one that has the band grooving hard and soulfully on shorter tracks that perfect the dark vision hinted at in the Maggot Brain years! The tunes are shorter, funkier, and catchier – and the vocals are especially great – so much so than on the title cut "Cosmic Slop" has harmonies so great you'd swear you were listening to late-Motown Temptations! Other tracks continue with a great soul-based focus, and include "You Can't Miss What You Can't Measure", "Nappy Dugout", "No Compute", and "Can't Stand the Strain" – and the record is packaged in a mind-blowing wraparound cover by Pedro Bell, the first of many the band would use!

New Bob JamesTwo ... LP
CTI, 1975. Very Good Gatefold ... $7.99
A monster – and quite possibly one of the greatest Fender Rhodes albums of all time! Bob James is really at the height of his powers here – stepping out with a sound that's a lot smoother than some of his earlier work, yet in a groove that's never too slick or too overproduced – as happened with some of his later records on the Tappan Zee imprint. Here, James is still a master of space and sound – using the Fender Rhodes with bell-like tones to craft some key grooves that are still having an amazing impact today, more than 30 years after the album was initially recorded! There's a darkness here that we totally love – and tracks include the legendary "Take Me To The Mardi Gras", which has been sampled by Run DMC and loads of others – plus"The Golden Apple", "I Feel A Song", "You're As Right As Rain", "Farandole", and "Dream Journey".

Yusef LateefGentle Giant ... LP
Atlantic, 1972. Good ... $2.99
One of the greatest Yusef Lateef albums on Atlantic Records – and that's saying a lot, given the high level of quality he was hitting at the label! The album's a perfect blend of the newly-funky Lateef style with some hipper, more sophisticated touches – a mode that hints at his bigger-concept recordings to come, but which is still pretty lean and clean overall – and damn funky on most of the best tracks! Yusef plays a host of hip flutes here, plus tenor and oboe – and an almost equal star on the record is Kenny Barron, whose electric piano lines really make the album something special. The album begins with a long take on Barron's "Nubian Lady" which begins the record – and Kenny also contributed the tighter grooving "Jungle Plum". Other tracks include "African Song", "Queen Of The Night", "Poor Fishermen", "Below Yellow Bell", and a strange version of "Hey Jude" that goes on for a long time, and really messes with the volume – listed on the cover with the note "Do not adjust the playback level on your audio equipment – readjust your mind!"

Seeco, 1958. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Fantastic work from the 50s New York scene – and a legendary set that offers up its own interpretation of Santerian rhythms! The groove on the set is very percussion-heavy – and done with that rich sort of vibe you might get on some of the classic Sabu Martinez records – or maybe even some of the percussion projects that were handled by jazz labels of the time – although with a definite rootsy feel, too – as all instrumentation is focused on the rhythms. There's vocals on the set – which give it a slightly spiritual sort of energy – alongside the heavy work on maracas, bongos, claves, cow bell, and an assortment of other percussion instruments. Titles include "Obanlaese", "A Bailar Oriza", "Africa", "Laye, Laye", "Nueva Oriza", and "Malambo". LP, Vinyl record album

Many tracks have background female vocals on the choruses, and the record's got good percussion by Leroy Bell and synth and keyboards by Casey James.

The production's pretty straight, but the group's playing in a cool open-ended style that still has elements of their earlier work, but which really makes things a lot more interesting than some of the Atlantic recordings. Milt Jackson's vibes have a bit more of a bell-like quality on some parts, and the rhythm team of Percy Heath and Connie Kay kick it with a soul jazz vibe on a few numbers – a nice change from the sleepier rhythms of earlier albums. Titles include "The Blue Necklace", "Exposure", "Jasmine Tree", and "Three Little Feelings". LP, Vinyl record album

There's less standout singles on this set than previous Philly records, but Lou's class and quality makes nearly every track come out wonderfully – a masterpiece of soulful understatement and grace.

Dawn, Late 50s. Very Good ... $29.99
One of the interesting Jazzville sides issued on the Dawn label, highlighting small cobos that fell a little outside the spotlight of some of the larger jazz oriented labels of the day, but worthy of far more than sidebar status. This set is divided in two like the ohers in the series, devoting one side of the LP to each of two artists. Charlie Smith's trio heads up side one, with drummer Charlie leading a tight trio featuring Hank Jones on piano and Oscar Pettiford on bass through crisp renditions of standards like "Hae You Met Miss Jones", "Body & Soul" and "Flying Home", plus Jones' "Blues For Sal". Side two features a larger group, showcasing reedman Aaron Sachs sextet with Dick Garcia, Osie Johnson, Aaron Bell, Joe Roland and Jimmie Cleveland. The deliver nice laidback takes on numbers that include "Aaron's Blues", "You're My Thrill", "Platter Pie", "Why Shouldn't I" and "Ah! The Pain". LP, Vinyl record album

H&L do an ok job with them, and they've got Van McCoy handling arrangements to add a bit more soul to the mix – but the record is still down a few notches from the classic years. The album includes one last Thom Bell arrangement – the group's huge "You Make Me Feel Brand New" – plus other cuts like "Love Is The Answer", "I Got Time On My Hands", "I Got A Letter", and "We Can Make It Happen Again", perhaps the group's wish for a bigger hit.

Don't go thinking that it's raw New Orleans soul, though, because the sound is a lot more polished, with more of a 70's modern groove to it. Willie's still got some nice moments on keyboards though, but most of the cuts also have some vocals.

The band is in great form vocally, and the album feels like some great group session for Philly International from the same time – with tight songs, sophisticated production, and a great update of the earlier harmony style. Not all the cuts are great – but the album kicks off with the wonderfully catchy "Aiming At Your Heart", a midtempo number that's worth the price of the album alone.

WhoQuadrophenia ... LP
Track/MCA, 1973. Very Good- 2LP Gatefold ... $6.99
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

The album's got some very tasty Varitone work by Pete Christlieb – blowing over the top of the group's vamping, chomping charts with a flatly soulful tone on the best numbers. The groove changes nicely from track to track – not entirely funky, but with some good swinging and mod moments that mix in some slight electric playing to the overall big band sound. Titles include "The Eel", "3 x 5 + 16", "The Oracle Speaks", "Breakthrough", "Moment Of Truth", and "Ode To Billy Joe". LP, Vinyl record album

Louis grooves it nice and hard in this excellent session from his early 50s Verve years – a mixed set of small group and large group numbers, all of them pretty darn tasty! The record kicks off with the tremendous "Skin Deep" title cut – a large group number that features Louis really going to town in an extended drum solo that must be one of the longest ever recorded during the period – maybe even the "Moby Dick" of its time! Other titles include "Loris", "Copasetic", "Claxton Hall Swing", and "Phalanges" – and players include Don Elliott, Ralph Martin, and Joe Puma in the small group – plus a host of Verve regulars in the large one!

New Black UhuruDub Factor ... LP
Mango, 1983. Near Mint- ... $14.99
One of our top 10 dub albums of all time! This LP bridges the gap between the the low-fi, down and dirty excursions of the 70's dub era, and the later high tech dub revolution brought on by On-U, Mad Professor and Jah Shaka. The rhythms here are all first rate, drawn mostly from their Chill Out LP with a few from Red, fueled by Sly and Robbie and a cast of regulars from the Island/Mango stable. Sly & Robbie also handle the production duties, and there's no shortage of fat grooves and unrelenting rhythms, then taken to the next level with deep space echo drops and 21st century sound effects and tape edits. Includes "Ion Storm", "Big Spliff", "Boof'N'Baff'N'Biff", "Puffed Out" and "Android Rebellion". LP, Vinyl record album

Jack Blanchard & Misty MorganBirds Of A Feather ... LP
Wayside, Early 70s. Very Good+ ... $4.99
One of the great, slightly twisted slices of pop meets country meets psychedelia meets easy moog grooves from Blanchard & Morgan! We know that's a lot of meeting going on, but this fab guy/girl partnership pushed the boundaries of country & pop conventions in the 60s & 70s like no other! Jack & Misty somehow make moogs and steel guitars make sense on the same record – just as well as they with surreal psych era lyricism paired with plaintive tales of working class woes. And they do it all without it ever dipping into hokum. This album features a dozen great tracks in all, including "Tennessee Bird Walk", "Big Black Bird (Spirit Of My Love)", "Chapel Hill", "The Dum Song", "Bethlehem Steel", "Poor Jody", "Humphrey The Camel", "Yellow Bellied Sap Sucker", "Changin' Times", "The Clock Of St James", "You've Got Your troubles (I've Got Mine)", and "With Pen In Hand".

Clarinet SummitSouthern Bells ... LP
Black Saint (Italy), 1987. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A groundbreaking ensemble – akin to the World Saxophone Quartet, and no doubt inspired by their experiments at the same time. The difference, though, is the range of experience of the players – as the group features David Murray, Jimmy Hamilton, Alvin Batiste, and John Carter, all playing b-flat or bass clarinets. No other accompaniment is featured, and titles include "Fluffy's Blues", "Beat Box", "Perdido", and "Southern Bells". LP, Vinyl record album

Obscure Ornette quartet LP for Impulse, featuring him, Dewey Redman, Charlie Haden, and his son Ornette Denardo (at 12) on drums. 4 tracks featuring prime middle-period playing by Ornette, including "C.O.D.", "New York", and "Bells and Chimes". Ornette also plays trumpet and violin. Nice gatefold with very sweet photos of the two Ornettes together. LP, Vinyl record album

New Lou DonaldsonMr Shing-A-Ling ... LP
Blue Note, 1967. Good ... $5.99
Funky funky Lou Donaldson – and one of the first albums to feature the tight drum work of Idris Muhammad behind Lou's horn – so early, in fact, that Muhammad's listed here on the label as Leo Morris, which was his original name! The group also features Blue Mitchell on trumpet, Jimmy Ponder on guitar, and Lonnie Smith on organ – and they all wail together in a sound that bridges the gap between Lou's earlier Blue Note soul jazz, and the later funky mode of his jazz funk years! Tracks include "The Humpback", "Peepin", "The Kid", and the fantastic cover of "Ode to Billie Joe" that's as much a sample cut as "Pot Belly"! LP, Vinyl record album
(Liberty stereo pressing. Cover has moderate wear and some splitting. Vinyl plays with clicks and crackles.)

Lou DonaldsonPretty Things ... LP
Blue Note, 1970. Very Good+ ... $29.99
A massive classic from Lou Donaldson's funky years with Idris Muhammad on drums – an album that's filled with lots of bottom-heavy grooves, plus some great work on alto, guitar, and organ! Muhammad's drums are in fine fine form here – right up there with his other LD Blue Note work, if not even better – and the rest of the lineup features Leon Spencer and Lonnie Smith on organ, Ted Dunbar and Melvin Sparks on guitar, and Blue Mitchell on trumpet – all top-shelf players who really make the album kick nicely. Titles include the classic cut "Pot Belly", which was sampled by Tribe Called Quest and about a hundred others – plus "Curtis Song", "Sassie Lassie", "Love", and a version of "Tennessee Waltz" that's even a nice one too!

Classic Norman Granz' Verve session. Take a host of players (Diz, Flip Phillips, Roy Eldridge, Louis Bellson, and others), put them in the studio, and let them play long jam session versions of jazz and swing classics. This one's got 2 long tracks that each take up a side – "Funky Blues" and "Lullaby In Rhythm". The groove is very laidback, with the usual Verve 50's sound. LP, Vinyl record album

New Duke EllingtonHi Fi Ellington Uptown ... LP
Columbia, 1953. Very Good- ... $7.99
One of Duke Ellington's standout sides for Columbia – a strong recording that revisits many of the best elements of his earlier work, and offers up some more sophisticated scoring for the 50s – thanks to extended track length in the LP generation! The tunes here are older ones, but they're taken to some nicely hip territory – thanks to Duke's strong ear for modern changes, and a line up of players that includes Billy Strayhorn on piano, Paul Gonsalves on tenor, Clark Terry and Ray Nance on trumpets, Juan Tizol on trombone, and Louis Bellson on drums. Bellson does a great job on the classic "Skin Deep" – a real showcase for his talents in this recording – and other titles include "The Mooche", "Take The A Train", and "Perdido" – plus "The Controversial Suite". LP, Vinyl record album
(6 eye pressing with deep groove. Cover has some wear and all seams are fully split.)
