SandpipersSpanish Album ... LP
A&M, 1969. Very Good ... $5.99
The Sandpipers sing in Spanish throughout – no surprise at all, given that the language always seemed to help them hit their heights in the 60s! The album's a mix of traditional tunes and some 60s pop numbers – the latter of which are served up here in Spanish lyrics, and given some very cool A&M arrangements by the likes of Perry Botkin, Nick DeCaro, Mort Garson, and Bob Thompson – all of whom really help make the album sparkle! There's even more depth and darkness here than you'd hear on other Sandpipers albums of the time – a sense of sound that's mindblowing, with light acoustic guitar floating next to muted trumpets, gentle percussion, and the warm harmonies of the trio. Another prime example of the way that A&M could make just about anything sound wonderful – with titles that include "La Bamba", "Louie Louie", "Estranos En La Noche", "Llevame A La Luna", "Ayer", "Michelle", and "Enamorado".

VariousWhen Day Is Done – The Orchestrations Of Robert Kirby ... CD
Ace (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99 19.98
The cover and title are both a reference to the late Nick Drake – and Drake's music is the way that most people know the talents of Robert Kirby – a fantastic arranger who helped bring a whole new level of melancholy and sophistication to British music at the start of the 70s! Kirby's strings are one of the elements that have always made Drake's Five Leaves Left album so wonderful – and around the same time, he also worked with a number of other English acts in similar modes – that unique post-folk period in which all previous standards and styles were broken open, and presented with a depth that's still strongly appreciated all these many years later! This is the first tribute to Kirby we've ever seen, and it's lovingly put together by Bob Stanley – the man who gave us the excellent English Weather compilation, a great partner to this one. Titles include "Rainbow River" by Vashti Bunyan, "Forest & The Shore" by Keith Christmas, "Ophelia's Song" by Shelagh McDonald, "What Memories We Make" by Dana Gillespie, "Gimme An Inch Girl" by Ian Matthews, "Madonna Blue" by Illusion, "First Light" by Richard & Linda Thompson, "Honour Bright" by Shirley Collins, "Love Is A Funny Thing" by Spirogyra, "White Witch" by Spriguns, "Dancing At Whitsun" by Tim Hart & Maddy Pryor, "I Keep A Close Watch" by John Cale, and "Follow On" by Steve Ashley.

Eddie HarrisThat Is Why You're Overweight ... LP
Atlantic, 1976. Sealed ... $11.99
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

VariousLet's Get Swinging – Modern Jazz In Belgium 1950 to 1970 ... CD
Sdban (Belgium), Late 50s/1960s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $21.99
A long-overdue look at the Belgian jazz scene in the postwar years – a nation that always seems to get overlooked next to the more famous jazz musicians that have recorded in Denmark, France, and The Netherlands at the time! Yet the Belgian scene also gave Paris some of its most important players of the 50s – and also helped provide a crossroads for American and other European musicians too – so there's a very lively sense of expression and exploration here – most that are mostly soulful, and in styles that include hardbop and modal – but in ways that share some of the best modern ideas of the Danish greats of the time. The package is way more than just music, too – as the notes are copious, and include images of all the rare records that provided the material – a few you might know, but not as Belgian classics – and lots more that should be very new! The set features both homegrown recordings, and Belgian contributions to other European recordings – and titles include "African Dance" by Jack Sels, "Dark Eyes" by Francy Boland, "Cecilia" by The Clouds, "Witch Of Salem" by Rene Goldstein & His Group, "Work Song" by Jacques Pelzer, "Let's Get Swinging" by The St Tropez Jazz Octet, "Grelots" by Philip Catherine & Robert Pernet, "Bernie's Taste" by Rene Thomas/Bobby Jaspar Quintet, "Ensadinado" by Fats Sadi, "Clarinescapade" by Bobby Jaspar, "Minor Works" by Lucky Thompson & Jack Sels, "Hall's Blues" by The Clouds, "Digging Chick" by Herman Sandy, "Subtroyan Influence" by Jon Eardley, and "Minor 5" by Saxorama & Jack Sels.

✨✧ Bunny WailerRoots Radics Rockers Reggae (aka In I Father's House) ... CD
Shanachie, 1980. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of Bunny Wailer's last totally roots oriented sets, before he began dabbling a bit in dancehall, and a mighty one at that. Livingston gets help from a cast of heavyweights, like Horsemouth Wallace, Robbie Shakespeare, Chinna Smith, Erest Ranglin, Tommy McCook, Bobby Ellis, Deadly Headly Bennet and Sticky Thompson. This US pressing, issued 3 years after the original Jamaican release, features all 6 cuts from the original LP: "Let Him Go", "Love Fire", "Roots Radics Rockers Reggae", "Rockin Time", "Rockers" and "Wirly Girly", plus an additional track, "Cease Fire".

✨✧ Chico FreemanTangents ... CD
Elektra/Wounded Bird, 1984. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Surprisingly dark music for a mid 80s major label jazz album – especially one that features guest work from Bobby McFerrin! Chico Freeman's definitely keeping true to his adventurous roots here – blowing some sharply angular lines on a range of reeds, and exploring both older jazz freedoms and some newer 80s experimental moments – all in a lineup with Mark Thompson on piano, Steve Coleman on alto and soprano sax, Jay Hoggard on vibes, Cecil McBee on bass, and Billy Hart on drums. Kenny Werner plays a bit of synth at times – in some dark-toned 80s modes – and although Bobby McFerrin is billed strongly on the cover, the album only seems to feature a bit of his vocalizations. Titles include "Sangoma & Nelly", "You Are The One", "Spook & Fade", "Tangents", "Ballad For Hakima", and "Sir Tashi & The Yeti". CD

✨✧ VariousCrazy Rhythms Of Mata Hari – Rolling Rockabilly, Hot & Cool Hillbilly, Wild Western Swing, Sleazy Listening, Sinuous Soul, & Slinky R&B ... LP
Stag O Lee (Germany), 1950s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A much more American-styled set of tracks than you'd guess from a record with Mata Hari in the title – mostly work from the hillbilly and R&B sides of the spectrum – pulled from a range of rare singles from the 50s! The vibe is a nice twist on some of the other compilations on the Stag O Lee label – and like the best of those, the mix here features very obscure numbers alongside tracks that might have been big in their day, but have really been lost to the shifting sands of time – nicely revived here for a new generation. The set's got an especially great way of being color-blind to divisions between genres that some folks might insist on – and in a way, maybe more reflects the on-the-ground listening patterns that happened back in the day. Titles include "Doggonit" by Jimmy Spellman, "Thanks Mr Postman" by Bobby King, "Honey Child" by Johnny Williams, "Cat Music" by Dave Bartholomew, "Rock A Billy Gal" by Hayden Thompson, "Black Cat" by Tommy Collins, "Snake Eyed Mama" by Al Casey, "Rocket 88" by Bill Haley & His Saddlemen, "Ghost Train" by The Swanks, "Rattlesnake Baby Rattlesnake" by Joe Johnson, "The Sneak" by Jimmy Oliver, "Snake Charmer" by Mad Man Jones, "Cajun Queen" by Red Sovine, "Lonesome Shack" by Ernie Washington, and "Fever" by Jim Tyler.

✨✧ Dexter GordonLandslide ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1961/1962. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Obscure material from Dexter Gordon – some rare gems from his early 60s years at Blue Note – unissued back and in the day, but brought together for this sweet package at the start of the 80s! The album's great in that it shows Gordon really trying on some new things at the label – playing in a few modes that are less iconic than his classics, yet still really exciting because of that fact! A few tracks feature an unusual quintet with Tommy Turrentine on trumpet, Sir Charles Thompson on piano, and Willie Bobo on drums – and three more have Sonny Clark on piano and the great Dave Burns on trumpet, with rhythm by Ron Carter on bass and Philly Joe Jones on drums. One last track is a quartet number with Kenny Drew on piano – and titles include "Six Bits Jones", "Landslide", "Love Locked Out", "You Said It", and "Second Balcony Jump". CD

✨✧ VariousOn The Soul Side – 26 Soul Grooves ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A classic compilation gets upgraded in a mighty nice way – as a huge tribute to the many years of soul and funk we've gotten from the Ace/Kent label in London! Back at the start of the 80s, the company was one of the first to properly repress rare American soul, and do it the right way – not only with top-shelf sound quality, but also a strong sense of history that has had us learning as much about 60s and 70s soul from their compilations as we've found ourselves loving the music! The original On The Soul Side album was one of the first Kent titles from the early years – but here, it's expanded to a whopping 26 titles, with great sound and detailed notes – all to present over two dozen tracks that really show the farther reaches of 60s soul beyond Motown and the big chart hits. Titles include "Boy Watcher" by Ginger Thompson, "Baby I Love You" by Jimmy Holiday, "Dr Love" by Bobby Sheen, "Love & Desire" by Patrice Holloway, "A Lot Of Love" by Homer Banks, "It's What's Underneath That Counts" by June Jackson, "Point Of No Return" by Gene McDaniels, "Fortune Teller" by Benny Spellman, "It Was Easier To Hurt Her" by Garnet Mimms, "The Record" by HB Barnum, "Love Is A Hurtin Thing" by Lou Rawls, "Nothing Left To Do But Cry" by Merry Clayton, "The Man Who Don't Believe In Love" by Marv Johnson, "What You Gonna Do" by Bobby Womack, "Nobody Treats You The Way I Do" by The Magnificent Men, "Gonna Fix You Good" by Little Anthony & The Imperials, "It Will Stand" by The Showmen, "What's A Matter Baby" by Timi Yuro, "Ready Willing & Able" by Jimmy Holiday & Clydie King, and "Trick Bag" by Earl King.
