Phil OchsTape From California ... LP
A&M, 1968. Very Good ... $5.99
Phil Ochs really opens up his sound on this one – working with larger arrangements that make the album sound quite different than the stark, angry folk of his Elektra albums – in a way that creates an even more complicated approach to Ochs' themes cynicism and bitterness. Arrangements are by Bob Thompson, Larry Marks, and Ian Freebairn-Smith – but Van Dyke Parks and Lincoln Mayorga are both credited in the notes, and it's their talents we seem to hear more on the record. Includes the great "The War Is Over" and "Tape From California" – plus "Half A Century High", "Joe Hill", "The Harder They Fall", "When In Rome", and "Floods Of Florence". LP, Vinyl record album
(Labels have some marker.)

✨✧ Katie LeeSongs of Couch & Consultation ... LP
Commentary, 1957. Used ... Out Of Stock
Fantastic stuff – and a key example of the penetration of psychoanalysis in the US during the postwar years! The tunes here are all vocal parodies of familiar themes from Freud – sung by Katie Lee in a way that's a bit jazz, but possibly a bit folksy too – very playful at times, with the dry wit that you'd get in some of Tom Lehrer's famous records of the same period. Instrumentation is arranged by Bob Thompson, who really emphasizes the whimsy in the tunes – and titles include "The Will To Fail", "Repressed Hostility Blues", "Gunslinger", "Properly Loved", "Real Sick Sounds", "Shrinker Man", and "Schizophrenic Moon". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear and a bit of pen.)

✨✧ Hubert EavesEsoteric Funk ... CD
East Wind/Universal (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the few albums we've ever seen by keyboardist Hubert Eaves – a great player whose work crops up on some of our favorite 70s soul jazz and jazz funk sides, but who rarely got a chance to lead his own group! Fortunately, he did get the chance to cut this one – as the session's a real doozy – sweet mellow fusion, handled very soulfully, with a kicked-back feel that's right up there with the most righteous soulful fusion of the time. Players include Mtume, John Lee, Reggie Lucas, Malachi Thompson, and Rene McLean – and Cheryl Alexander sings vocals on the track "Under Standing". A great blend of laidback funk and soulful grooves – in the manner of Bobby Lyle at his best – and titles include "Slow Down", "Painful Pleasure", "Call To Awareness", and "Flead Dancing". CD

✨✧ Eddie HarrisThat Is Why You're Overweight ... LP
Atlantic, 1976. Used ... Out Of Stock
Eddie continues the funky groove begun on Instant Funk, and smoothed out over albums like I Need Some Money – and although jazz fans probably gave him hell for going this way, we think this is actually a pretty darn great album! The record takes all of Eddie's experimentation with groovy styles from the early 70s, and filters it through some tighter playing that actually makes the groove a lot more compelling than before. A number of the tracks have vocals, almost in a humorous Bill Cosby mode – but in a way that also preserves the party feel of the cuts. Players include Bobby Lyle, Paul Humphrey, Buck Clarke, and Bradley Bobo – and one Chicago-recorded track features a great assortment from older years that includes Muhal Abrams, Odell Brown, Marshapp Thompson, Willie Henderson, and Richard Evans. Titles include "Tryin Ain't Dyin", "Ooh", "Exempt", "Live Again", "Flowers", "Why Do You Hurt Me", and "It's All Right Now". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout notch, promo sticker, and unglued seams.)
