Charles Bell & The Contemporary Jazz QuartetAnother Dimension ... LP
Atlantic, 1962. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A wonderful set by the enigmatic Charles Bell – a 60s modernist, but one with a great sense of soul! The album definitely lives up to its title, and has a fresh approach to the medium – a style that has some of the Modern Jazz Quartet influence in its structure, yet which also shares some more complex rhythmic ideas from the Ornette Coleman camp – mixed with a straighter hardbop vibe as well! The blend is quite compelling – and in addition to Bell's work on piano, the set also features Bill Smith on guitar, Ron Carter on bass, and Allan Blairman on drums. Titles include "Satan Said", "Django", "Portrait Of Aunt Mary", "Theme", and "Bass Line". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original blue and green label pressing.)

✨✧ William BellPhases Of Reality ... LP
Stax, 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A full, rich set from William Bell – one that's got a headier 70s approach than some of his earlier work for Stax – with a set of themes that clearly pick up on the socially conscious vibe of the time, set to arrangements that include a bit more keyboards and funky guitar than usual! William's got the Muscle Shoals Rhythm team backing him up – and the album was recorded in both Memphis and Muscle Shoals, with a hard-hitting righteous sound that's easily a summation of the best of both scenes at the time – with a slight nod towards the smoother southern grooves from deeper south. Titles include the funky title cut "Phases Of Reality", plus "50 Dollar Habit", "Save Us", "What I Don't Know Won't Hurt Me", "The Man In The Street", and "Lonely For Your Love".

✨✧ Archie Bell & The DrellsDance Your Troubles Away ... LP
TSOP, 1975. Used ... Out Of Stock
Although Archie Bell & The Drells had recorded earlier with Gamble & Huff on Atlantic, this is their first album for the team's own label – and it's a killer! In a way, Archie and group were sort of responsible for getting Gamble & Huff their own famous imprint in the first place – because their work with the team on Atlantic yielded some instant hits that really pointed the way towards the hit Gamble & Huff style of the 70s, and that sound is brought up-to-date nicely on this LP. The record really retains the strong vocal sound of earlier years – and has some of the best harmonies the band ever recorded, very much in the mode of The O'Jays or Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes. McFadden & Whitehead and Bunny Sigler wrote most of the material, backing is by the Instant Funk group, and the Gamble & Huff team handled production on all cuts. Titles include "Let's Groove", "I Won't Leave You Honey, Never", "Let's Groove", "The Soul City Walk", "Dance Your Troubles Away", and "I Love You (But You Don't Even Know It)".

Dave BrubeckDave Brubeck At Wilshire-Bell ... LP
Fantasy, 1953. Good+ ... $11.99
An early concert from the Dave Brubeck Quartet, but a great one too – and a set that's filled with sparklingly crisp alto work from the mighty Paul Desmond! The style here is in keeping with some of Brubeck's early Fantasy studio sides – a bit more inside than later years, with a straightly swinging groove that's a perfect showcase for Desmond's amazing talents on the alto sax – recorded here with really great fidelity, despite the live setting of the show. Tracks are all longish, more so than some on the studio albums – and other members of the group include Ron Crotty on bass and Lloyd Davis on drums. Titles include "Stardust", "All The Things You Are", "I'll Never Smile Again", "Too Marvelous For Words", "Why Do I Love", and "Let's Fall In Love". LP, Vinyl record album

Bob Crewe GenerationLet Me Touch You (Bell) ... LP
Bell, Early 70s. Very Good ... $4.99
Recorded after his famous Music To Watch Girls By LP, and with a sound that's similar, but which also has a cool moody sound to it that's less camp than the "Girls" LP. There's lots of cool arrangements and weird instrumental twists, as you'd expect from Bob at this time, and the LP includes a version of his own "Barbarella", plus "Let Me Touch You" and "An Angel Is Love". Great stuff, with a cool easy groove. LP, Vinyl record album

Burt BacharachLost Horizon – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Bell, 1973. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $1.99
One of Bacharach's strangest records! The soundtrack was written for the huge flop musical Lost Horizon – and it features all vocal tracks, sung by the likes of Shawn Phillips, Sally Kellerman, and Diana Lee. The overall feel is very sing-songy, with kind of a children's them sort of sound – but there's actually a few nuggets of great songwriting in here, especially on the tracks "The World Is A Circle" and "Living Together, Growing Together".

✨✧ Al GreenAl Green ... LP
Bell, 1972. Used ... 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

AmericaHearts ... LP
Warner, 1975. Very Good+ ... $7.99
Warm wonderful work from America – keenly collaborating here with producer George Martin, who helps them take their already-great sound into a whole new dimension! Martin's got a wonderfully smooth touch on his studio work here – cool, compressed, and just right for the group's harmony approach – yet never in ways that are slick or sleepy at all! If anything, there might even be more intimacy to these songs than on the group's initial records – and the best vocal and acoustic touches are still preserved nicely amidst some larger lovely arrangements from George. Titles include "Sister Golden Hair", "Midnight", "Bell Tree", "Old Virginia", "People In The Valley", "Seasons", and "Daisy Jane". LP, Vinyl record album

Burt BacharachBurt Bacharach (1971) ... LP
A&M, 1971. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $6.99
Insanely wonderful work by Bacharach – in a way that we can hardly begin to describe (but we'll certainly try!) By the time this one was recorded – 1971 – Burt's reputation as a songwriter and arranger were so firmly established that he had an incredible amount of freedom in the studio. Here, working with tunes that were mostly well-worn, plus a new one or two – Burt comes up with an amazingly complex set of arrangements, opening up his tunes like little flowers, focusing on a particular instrumental tendril, and drawing it out into incredible lines of melody and color. Proof of this is the album's extended version of "Wives & Lovers", or its suite for orchestra, entitled "And The People Were With Her". All tracks are great – from Burt's intimate vocal on "Hasbrook Heights", to the jangly instrumentation of "Freefall", to the completely recast versions of hits like "One Less Bell To Answer", "April Fools", and "Mexican Divorce".

John ColtraneOm ... LP
Impulse, 1965. Very Good Gatefold ... $24.99
A pure statement of being and essence – and one of John Coltrane's spiritual masterpieces from the 60s! The 1965 recording was one of Trane's most adventurous so far – as it featured just one album-length track, building up out of relatively free expressions from Coltrane in the studio – initially in the spirit of Love Supreme, but much sharper-edged and unbridled overall – as if the meditative spirit of the previous recording had unlocked a sense of freedom that refused to be tied down to simple structures! The group is great – and features Pharoah Sanders on tenor, Donald Garrett on bass clarinet, McCoy Tyner on piano, Jimmy Garrison on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums – plus a bit of flute and percussion from Joe Brazil. The playing is much freer than on other albums of the time, but also has some introspective spiritual moments – clearly inspired by the Love Supreme recording, but taken a shade outside as well!

✨✧ CorporationCorporation ... LP
Capitol, Late 60s. Good+ ... $9.99
An excellent album of jazzy rock material from Detroit! The Corporation were definitely one of the hipper groups ever to record for Capitol during the late 60s, as you'll hear on their incredible version of John Coltrane's "India", done as a progged-out slightly funky instrumental, and taking up all of side 2 of the record. Given that there's no sax player in the group, their version's quite different than the original, with lots of nice organ and guitar jamming. Side 1 of the album features the group on 5 shorter psyche vocal numbers – like "Smile", "Drifting", "Highway", and "Ring That Bell" – all of them pretty groovy, and with some good jazzy influences.

The whole thing's a great example of how the group could hold up the perfection of Kind Of Blue in a live setting – and the long tracks include "Jazz At The Plaza", "If I Were A Bell", and "Oleo".

Miles DavisMiles In Tokyo ... LP
CBS (Japan), 1964. Near Mint- ... $49.99
Miles Davis' first-ever performance in Japan – a really unique concert that featured the quintet with Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, and Tony Williams – augmented by a young Sam Rivers on tenor! The presence of Rivers really gives the set an edge – and although Miles is holding Sam a bit more in check than on some of his "new thing" albums from the time, there's an overall quality here that's different than the other Davis quintet albums of the time. The set was one of a number of important Miles Davis live sessions from the period – including albums from Berlin, Antibes, and Chicago – and titles include "If I Were A Bell", "My Funny Valentine", "So What", "Walkin'" and "All Of You".

DefunktThermonuclear Sweat ... LP
Hannibal, 1982. Very Good+ ... $7.99
While part of us wants to identify Joseph Bowie's avant jazz background and the links to the downtown early 80s scene, we think it's more than fair to just put Defunkt into a class of their own as horn driven modern funk. This time out the group is made up of John Mulkerin, Kelvyn Bell, Kim Clarke and Kenny Martin, with some help from Vernon Reid, Richard Martin, Dave Hubbard and Clarence Taylor but the groove is very much in the vein of their earlier efforts, seamlessly melding jazzy riffs and tight grooves with some occasional nods to the black rock movement and their off kilter post punk peers. 8 tracks in all, including "Illusion", "I Tried To Live Alone", "Cocktail Hour (Blue Bossa)", "Ooh Baby", "Avoid The Funk", "Big Bird (Au Private)", "For The Love Of Money" and "Believing In Love".

Philly Groove, 1970. Very Good- ... $9.99
The third album in an amazing early run from The Delfonics – the kind of work that set a whole new standard for group soul in the 70s! A number of the tracks here had already risen to fame before the album's release as singles – and these are mixed with some additional tracks that are woven together in a near-perfect symphony of sound! The mighty Thom Bell arranged most of the numbers here – save for 2 by Anthony Dorsey – and the group's heavenly harmonies are in amazing form on both mellow ballads and a few more righteous numbers. Titles include "Didn't I Blow Your Mind This Time", "Funny Feeling", "Over & Over", "Baby I Love You", "When You Get Right Down To It", "Delfonics Theme", "Trying To Make A Fool Of Me", "I Gave To You", "Down Is Up Up Is Down", and "Think About Me".

Wonderful rare work from The Delfonics – post-Bell recordings that still show the group at the top of their harmony game! The style here is somewhat more modern, but still plenty darn wonderful – with that sweetly crackling sound that's instantly recognizable on any Delfonics recording – produced and arranged beautifully by William Hart. And in fact, the slight change in backings makes for a fresher approach to the group's vocals than on some of their classics – a very groovy sound that we really like a lot!

A landmark album in harmony soul – one of those records that pushed the genre to a whole new level! The Delfonics emerge fully formed here as one of the most compelling groups of their time – a tremendous trio with a really unique approach to soul music – one that's heartfelt and heartbreaking, but never too sweet to be cloying or poppy – definitely just the right groove to keep things hip while also cracking the charts! The album's their first full collaboration with legendary producer Thom Bell – and it's got a sound that's summed up perfectly in the quintessential cut "La La Means I Love You" – and which is followed through beautifully on a batch of tracks that includes "Losing You", "Can You Remember", "You're Gone", "I'm Sorry", and "Break Your Promise".

Cadet, 1971. Good ... $1.99
A stunning set from the mighty mighty Dells – a cool collaboration with the legendary arranger Charles Stepney and songwriter Terry Callier – and a record that shows just how far the group had come since their streetcorner harmony days! The vocals are incredible – that rich blend of deep notes and soaring highs that made The Dells one of the most technically amazing soul groups in the 70s – and Stepney's arrangements follow in the same mode as his work for their Dionne Warwick album, and his music for Minnie Riperton and Ramsey Lewis – with lots of groovy currents on the bottom and soaring strings on the top – sophisticated, but completely soulful too – at a level that nobody else can touch! Terry Callier wrote the original tunes "The Love We Had Stays On My Mind", "Freedom Means", "Melody Man", "Free & Easy", "Rather Be With You", and "It's All Up To You" – and the set also includes great remakes of "One Less Bell To Answer", "Make It With You", and "If You Go Away/Love Story".

Manu DibangoSoul Makossa ... LP
Atlantic, 1972. Very Good ... $29.99
An incredible record – even if it was a worldwide hit! Before this one came out, Manu was a funky sax player grooving away in Cameroun, cutting tight but obscure soulful sides. In 1972, though, he exploded with the track "Soul Makossa" – a choppy hard-riffing number that blew up on dancefloors instantly, thanks to a strong cultural colonial pipeline already laid down by the French. The track had this amazing choppy beat that was instantly copied by loads of folks – as was the "Soul Makossa" tune, which due to some sort of copyright loophole, was covered by just about as many groups in the 70s as "Der Komissar" was in the 80s! (This is also why the album has a banner on the top that says "The Original"!) The rest of the album was recorded to follow up on the strength of that single – and believe it or not, it's actually even better, as the band is completely tight, very funky, and playing with that weird mix of Afro rhythms and electric funk that was being laid down in Paris at the time (and in fact, French jazzer Georges Arvanitas actually plays on the album!) Manu's tone is incredible, and the record's a must-have in the bin of any fan of 70s Afro Funk! Cuts include "New Bell", "Hibiscus", "Lily", and "O Boso". LP, Vinyl record album

Black Lion (Germany), 1962. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A sharp early 60s session from the Duke Ellington group – one that seems to draw strongly on the best late 50s work for Columbia Records, but which also seems to add in an extra crackle too! The tunes are relatively short, but the group pack plenty of punch in the small space – especially on the more rhythmic numbers, which almost seem to borrow a bit from Basie's bag – yet with more of the sophistication you'd expect on the Ellington horns. The work of Aaron Bell on bass and Sam Woodyard on drums is especially strong on this session – but there's loads of great interplay from reedmen who include Johnny Hodges, Jimmy Hamilton, Russel Procope, Harry Carney, and Paul Gonsalves – plus trumpet from Bill Berry, Cat Anderson, Roy Burrowes, and Harold Baker. Titles include "Taffy Twist", "Flirtbird", "Smada", "What Am I Here For", "Boo Dah", "Black & Tan Fantasy", and "I'm Gonna Go Fishin". LP, Vinyl record album

We're not sure what "soul-stream" is as a genre – but given the strength of this record, we'd be more than willing to grant it onto Curtis Fuller all by himself! The record's a gem that's even more obscure than Fuller's already-rare dates for Blue Note at the end of the 50s – a crack set done for the Warwick label, and one that features an all-star group who've got a great blend of modern edges and soulful rhythms. Alongside Fuller's trombone, other players include Yusef Lateef on tenor and flute, Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Walter Bishop on piano, Buddy Catlett on bass, and Stu Martin on drums – making a rare early appearance here. Titles include "If I Were A Bell", "Do I Love You", "Chantized", "Flutie", "The Court", and "Mr L". LP, Vinyl record album

Don't miss this one, though – because it is a very strong album – key in the shift from more guitar-based funk to more groove-oriented rhythms – and a record that's got more than a few tasty numbers. Includes nice ones like "You Scared The Lovin Outta Me", "Comin Round The Mountain", and "If You Got Funk, You Got Style", plus a live version of "Cosmic Slop" that's totally great!

Eddie HarrisExodus To Jazz ... LP
Vee Jay, Mid 60s. Very Good ... $7.99
One of the true hit jazz albums of the 60s, and a record that's still pretty darn incredible today! Who'd have thought that a jazz recording of the theme to the film "Exodus" could have been such a hit? It was, and the way Eddie handled it forever transformed the face of jazz. Eddie was nicely poised between the harder soul jazz camps and the freer spiritual jazz underground that was operating in Chicago and Detroit in the 60s – and with his unique combo that had Joe Dorio on guitar, he transformed the song into a great groove that matched the other excellent material that he was laying down at the time. This record's a gem, which is often rare for such a jazz "hit" – and it includes loads of great tracks like "AM Blues", "Velocity", "Alicia", and "ATC". LP, Vinyl record album

Goldie HawnGoldie ... LP
Reprise, 1972. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A rare vocal outing from Goldie Hawn – recorded early in her career, and kind of a seminal shift away from the goofier side of her Laugh-In years! The style is surprisingly heartfelt, and quite intimate – a bit like that of Claudine Longet's later records at times, which is well suited to Goldie's voice, and no surprise considering that Longet's maestro Nick DeCaro had a hand in the set. Other tracks, though, bring in a bit more of a country influence – which is somewhat odd, but a really nice surprise in this setting – and shows a bit more depth than we'd expect from Hawn. Goldie's got some help on the record from Dolly Parton, Porter Wagoner, and Buck Owens & The Buckaroos – and titles include the wonderful "The House Song", plus "Carey", "Cloudy Summer", "Ring Bell", "Pasadena", "My Blue Tears", and "Uncle Pen".

CTI, 1975. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $16.99
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".

Atlantic, 1972. Very Good+ ... $8.99
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!"

I RibelliI Ribelli ... LP
Contempo (Italy), 1968. Near Mint- (reissue)... $6.99
A very groovy group from the Italian scene of the 60s – one that clearly draw a lot of inspiration from both American soul and the garage underground – which is then fused into this really unique Italian language style of its own! There's plenty of fuzz on the guitars, and lots of organ lines in the quintet too – but the vocal phrasing and some of the rhythms show a love of Memphis and Muscle Shoals, which makes for a really great surprise – and also gives some of these tunes a really universal sort of appeal! The set features groovy covers of "Tell Mama", "Make Your Own Sweet Music", "Get Ready", and "You Keep Me Hanging On" – plus the titles "Un Posto Al Sole", "Pugni Chiusi", and "Nel Sole Nel Vento Nel Sorriso E Nel Pianto".

LaBelleMoon Shadow ... LP
Warner, 1972. Very Good+ ... $19.99
One of the greatest albums ever by Labelle – known especially for the massive funky title cut, which has been an in-demand groover for years! "Moonshadow" begins with a nice funky piano intro, then rolls into a 10 minute groove that's really tasty – filled with lots of jazzy riffing, tasty conga, and a weird monologue by Patti that runs through different parts of the body and why you should appreciate them! The cut was lost on American audiences of the 70s, but became a huge one in the European jazz dance scene of the late 80s, probably because most of them couldn't understand how silly Patti's vocals were! The cut's nice and funky, though – and there's some other nice ones on the record, too, including "Sunday News", "Touch Me All Over", and "Peace With Yourself". Much more interesting than most of their stuff, with a hip mixture of jazz, soul, and hard grooving! LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear, and is missing the insert.)

Laura Nyro with LabelleGonna Take A Miracle ... LP
Columbia, 1971. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A tremendous album from Laura Nyro – a real return to the soulful style of her roots, thanks to help from Labelle on backing vocals, and the team of Gamble & Huff on production! If Nyro only ever gave the world this record, that would more than be enough – because the whole thing's an incredibly hip blend of her own great songwriting and some of the more righteous strands of American soul music at the time. Most of the tracks are older soul numbers – some done relatively straight, others done with the more personal, contemplative style you'd expect from Nyro during these years. And decades before Amy Winehouse or Joss Stone started hitting territory like this, Nyro proved that a set of soul tracks like this could come off well, if handled with the right talent! Titles include "The Bells", "I Met Him On A Sunday", "Spanish Harlem", "You've Really Got A Hold On Me", "Desiree", "The Wind", "Nowhere To Run", and "It's Gonna Take A Miracle". LP, Vinyl record album

Mike OldfieldTubular Bells ... LP
Virgin/Epic, 1973. Very Good ... $3.99
Easily one of the most successful albums of the British jazz rock years – but still a longtime favorite of ours as well! Mike Oldfield sets a whole new standard here for concept rock – not only by working on a single album-length composition that spans all of sides one and two, but also by playing all instruments himself – in a one man symphony of sound that's pretty darn great! The main theme of the piece will be recognizable from it's stripped-down use in The Exorcist – but we really love Oldfield's expansion on it here in a range of different overdubbed instruments, which are also sometimes processed – and then introduced by Mike in a spoken part that's one of the highlights of the album.

✨✧ Les BaxterHell's Belles ... LP
Sidewalk, 1969. Used (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Fantastic funkiness! Although Les Baxter's best known for his easy listening work in the late 50's/early 60's, this 1969 biker flick soundtrack is a motherlode of funky funky tracks, and a veritable cornucopia of breakbeats! Highlights include the classics "Hogin' Machine" and "Hot Wind", but there's lots of other nice ones like "Soul Groove" and "Scoobee Doo". The drums are nice and hard, and there's plenty of fuzzy fuzzy guitar to go around nicely! A few tracks have vocals, but the instrumentals more than make up for any weak spots. Essential.
