Bobby ByrdI Need Help ... LP
King, Early 70s. Very Good+ ... $129.99
The stunning only album ever from the great Bobby Byrd – know to many as a longtime associate of James Brown, and finally getting his chance to shine here in the spotlight! Bobby was in the game before James, and always continued to change his groove in all the right ways with The Godfather – so this late 60s recording has Byrd coming across just like the best last James Brown material on King – with production from James, and backing from the same group too! There's loads of classics here that went onto become huge funky 45s over the years – and big sample cuts too – and titles include "I Need Help (I Can't Do It Alone) (parts 1 & 2)", "Funky Soul", "My Concerto", "You Got To Have A Job (If You Don't Work, You Can't Eat)", and "Hang Ups We Don't Need (The Hungry We've Got To Feed)". LP, Vinyl record album

George BensonGood King Bad ... LP
CTI, 1975. Very Good Gatefold ... $1.99
Sweet 70s funk from George Benson – an album that's a bit smoother than some of his earlier work, but still free from the commercial polish of his later hits! Maestro David Matthews is at the helm for this session – and most numbers have a full backing from players who include some of the best of the CTI/Kudu generation – including Ronnie Foster and Bobby Lyle on keyboards, Joe Farrell on flute, Fred Wesley on trombone, Eric Gale on rhythm guitar, Dave Friedman on vibes, and Steve Gadd on drums – who manages to kick in a nicely funky undercurrent, even on some of the mellower numbers. George's guitar is filled with warmly chromatic hues – gliding away nicely on titles that include the slow funky "Em", plus "Siberian Workout", "Shell Of A Man", "Hold On I'm Coming", "One Rock Don't Make No Boulder", and "Theme From Good King Bad".

Earl GainesLovin Blues – The Starday/King Years 1967-1973 ... CD
West Side (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $11.99
Earl Gaines is one of the great under-recognized talents of southern soul – and he's got a wonderful style that mixes bluesy roots with smoother arrangements, in a manner that's slightly similar to the work of Bobby Blue Bland, but which also has it's own unique feel. His recordings are all incredibly hard to find – which is why we're super-pleased to have this 23 track set of rare King material that includes a few extra unissued tracks! The titles should give you more than enough of a picture of the material – especially "Three Wishes For A Fool", "My Pillow Stays Wet", "Fruit From Another Man's Tree", "What In The World Can I Call My Own", and "Don't Deceive Me (Please Don't Go)".

BB KingBlues Is King ... CD
MCA, 1967. Used ... $9.99
A 60s set from Memphis bluesman BB King – but one put together with a very distinct Chicago touch as well! The set's produced by Johnny Pate, and recorded live with a vibe that's similar to King's classic recording at The Regal – but it's almost got even more of a soulful punch, thanks to backing from a cool small combo that includes Bobby Forte on tenor, Kenneth Sands on trumpet, Duke Jethro on Hammond, and Louis Satterfield on bass! BB's vocals are great – in his best early form – and the tunes are bluesy, but also smoke with a nice degree of soul – and almost some jazzy touches at times from the tenor and organ. Titles include "Don't Answer The Door", "Blind Love", "Tired Of Your Jive", "Night Life", "Buzz Me", and "Waitin On You". CD

✨✧ BB KingBlues On Top Of Blues (180 gram pressing) ... LP
ABC/Elemental (Spain), 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
There's some bigger arrangements here than you'd usually get on a BB King album of the 60s – but they're used in a really great way that makes the album one of our favorites by King from his years at ABC! Johnny Pate arranged and produced, and he gives the whole thing a Chicago soul punch that's mighty nice – a mix of blues and soul that's not unlike some of the best Bobby Blue Bland work at Duke a few years before – and a blend that's really a lot like some of the best indie soul coming out of Chicago's west side in the late 60s too. The album's a killer all the way through, and it's great to hear BB in such a setting – on cuts that include "Dance With Me", "Heartbreaker", "I'm Not Wanted Anymore", "Having My Say", "That's Wrong Little Mama", "Now That You've Lost Me", "Until I Found You", and "Worried Dream".

BB KingHis Best – The Electric BB King ... LP
Bluesway, Late 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $12.99
BB King at his late 60s best – working here in the company of producers Johnny Pate and Quincy Jones, and serving up a great blend of blues and soul in the process! The set's less a "best of", than a collection of ABC work that doesn't seem to be on the other full albums of the time – mostly produced by Johnny Pate, with those great Chicago soul touches that helped his work with King really cross new boundaries – and finally give BB the kind of full, forceful approach that Bobby Blue Bland had been getting for years. The Quincy Jones cuts are two from the soundtrack to For Love Of Ivy – both pretty groovy, with a socking soul punch – and titles on the full album include "Tired Of Your Jive", "Don't Answer The Door", "The BB Jones", "Paying The Cost To Be The Boss", "All Over Again", "I Don't Want You Cutting Off Your Hair", "Sweet Sixteen", "Meet My Happiness", and "You Put It On Me".

VariousGoffin & King – A Gerry Goffin & Carole King Song Collection 1961 to 1967 ... CD
Ace (UK), 1960s. New Copy ... $10.99 18.99
The full scope of the mighty songwriting talents of Carole King and Gerry Goffin – a much-chronicled 60s team who had plenty of troubles of their own, but who brought some really amazing music to the world at the time! The package features songs in a variety of genres – soul, pop, rock, country, and more – including some appearing here on CD for the first time ever, and plenty more that aren't just the obvious Goffin/King hits! The CD features a huge booklet – nearly 25 pages in all – with track-by-track notes on the tunes, as well as on the songwriting team – and as with some of Ace's other explorations into 60s pop powerhouses, the single disc package is almost more informative and thorough than some bigger box sets. Titles include "He's In Town" by The Tokens, "Don't Ever Change" by The Crickets, "The First & The Last" by The Chiffons, "Brand New Man" by Richard Popcorn Wylie, "Let Me Get Close To You" by Skeeter Davis, "The Idol" by Bobby Vee, "I Can't Make It Alone" by PJ Proby, "Just A Little Girl" by Donna Loren, "I Can't Hear You" by Betty Everett, "I Just Can't Say Goodbye" by Bobby Rydell, "I Didn't Have Any Summer Romance" by The Satisfactions, "Yours Until Tomorrow" by Dee Dee Warwick, "So Much Love" by Ben E King, and "A Natural Woman" by Aretha Franklin.

✨✧ BB KingLA Midnight ... LP
ABC, 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
BB King brings in a sweet dose of jazz to his work – just a touch of the funkier backings that some of his electric contemporaries were getting at the time – maybe not as hard-wailing as some of the Chess funky blues records, but definitely somewhere in that direction! Players on the date include Mel Brown and Jesse Davis on guitars, Bobby Bryant on trumpet, Red Holloway on tenor, Plas Johnson on baritone, Clifford Coulter and Victor Feldman on piano, and the great Earl Palmer on drums. Titles include "Help The Poor", "Can't You Hear Me Talking To You", "Midnight", "I Got Some Help I Don't Need", "I've Been Blue Too Long", "Lucille's Granny, and "Can't You Hear Me Talking To You".

✨✧ Bobby KeysBobby Keys ... CD
Warner/Wounded Bird, 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really cool album from saxophonist Bobby Keys – a record with no vocals at all, just Bobby's solos – but a set that's maybe better tagged as instrumental rock than jazz, given the heavyweight guest musicians in the lineup! Keys blows with an all-star array of talent from the rock scene of the time – including Jack Bruce and Felix Pappalardi on bass, Leslie West and Dave Mason on guitars, Nicky Hopkins on keyboards, and Ringo Starr on drums – plus a bit more guitar from George Harrison, too! Yet what's great about the record is that all these talents put aside their ego and follow Bobby's lead – in a groove that's maybe a bit southern soul, a bit down-home rock – with some definite currents of Memphis and Muscle Shoals in the music. Titles include "Crispy Duck", "Steal From A King", "Bootleg", "Smokefoot", "Altar Rock", "Command Performance", and "Sound & Foam". CD

Clocktower/Get On Down, 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Essential dub material from the legendary King Tubby – a set that's one of the best of the genre during the classic years – and which stands as a true testament to how great the format can be when handled right! The watchword here is simplicity – as the key elements are almost isolated in little sonic chambers, then set to resonate alongside each other – pulled from rhythms from tracks initially done as vocal productions, but reworked through the mixing talents of Erroll "ET" Thompson and Tubby. Players include Bobby Ellis on trumpet, Richard "Dirty Harry" Hall on tenor, and Augustus Pablo on organ and piano, plus a bit of clarinet. Titles include "Keep On Dubbing", "Stop Them Jah", "Young Generation Dub", "Each One Dub", "555 Dub Street", "Braces Tower Dub", "King Tubby Meets Rockers Uptown", "Corner Crew Dub", "Say So", "Skanking Dub", and "Frozen Dub".

✨✧ VariousKing Serious Soul Vol 2 – Counting Teardrops ... CD
King/Kent (UK), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Incredible deep soul – and a wealth of tracks you've probably never heard before! Sure, the King label's best known for it's work in 50s R&B and 60s James Brown soul – but this 24 tracks set shows that King (and related labels) were still working hard in the late 60s and early 70s to come up with the best of the southern soul underground – a massive batch of lesser-known artists who were burning the soul light bright. The quality of the work here is fantastic – as great as the best on Stax at the time, and then some – as the tunes really glisten with a newness and freshness that keeps us going through the set list again and again. Titles include "Precious Minutes" by Elaine Armstrong, "Beggin Just Ain't My Bag" by Dan Brantley, "Money Can't Buy True Love" by James Duncan, "One Woman" by Pat Lundy, "Darling Darling I Love You" by Johnny Soul, "Everywhere I Go" by Bobby & The Expressions, "Never Let A Love Grow Cold" by Allison, "Lost My Faith In You" by Charles Vickers, "I'm A Fool In Love" by LH & The Memphis Sounds, "All Woman" by Dottie Clark, "She Wrote It I Read It" by Junior McCants, and "Counting Teardrops" by James K-Nine.

✨✧ VariousKing New Breed Rhythm & Blues ... CD
King/Kent (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
During the 50s, King Records was one of the biggest labels in R&B – and as the soul years of the 60s approached, the company kept the flag flying strong with a host of new artists, underground soul and blues singers who helped define the new sound of the decade with a rich approach to the music. This set features 24 tracks from those years – mostly obscure numbers by artists that have long fallen by the wayside, but who recorded for King next to James Brown, Little Willie John, and other important early soul artists – often matching or beating their intensity with their brief turn in the studio! The set features tracks that were mostly singles on the King and Federal labels – with titles that include "My Kinda Girl" by Hannibal, "You're Welcome To The Club" by Lee Shot Williams, "Just A Little Bit" by Tiny Topsy, "Thanks Mr Postman" by Bobby King, "I'm Shakin" by Little Willie John, "Burnt Toast & Black Coffee" by Mike Pedicin, "I'm Better Off Now" by The Premiers, "She Made My Blood Run Cold" by Ike Turner, "You Won't Want Me Around" by Mike Williams, "You're Using Me" by The King Pins, and "Don't Be So Mean" by William Patton.

✨✧ VariousSoul Of Money Records ... CD
Money/Kent (UK), 1960s/1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An amazing collection of obscure 45 material and rare album tracks from the archives of the legendary Money/Cash labels! Money Records was a huge beacon for somewhat rough-edged driving soul, when it found its niche on the LA scene in the early 60s. Amazing artists that never fully got their due – stars like Bettye Swann, the Larks (aka Pretenders), the Question Marks, King Solomon, Sonny Herman, and tons of others – many with roots in late 50s doo wop and r&b, recorded endearingly rawer singles for the label in the 60s, and stayed as it progressed into more of a smooth, slightly more polished and groovy sound in the early 70s. 24 tracks – most of which are pretty darn hard to track down on vinyl! Includes "Too Much For You" by Bobby Angelle, "What About Me" by Sonny Herman, "Temptation Walk" by the Larks, "Separation" by King Solomon, "You Gave Me Love" by Bettye Swann, "Baby" by Ted "Soul" Hawkins, "Lil' Valley" by M&M and the Peanuts, "Dancing With My Baby" by the T-K-O's, and tons more. Includes an excellent booklet with great photos, bios, and notes on the production and arrangements! CD

Acrobat (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $6.99 13.99
Nice 60s southern soul from shouter/songwriter Jimmy Hollywood – a collection of his rare singles for the Everest label! Jimmy is best known as an ace songwriter, having penned many hits for a wide range of artists, but this collection shows that he was also performer of the first orders! He rolls between the gritty shout of the Bobby Bland school, to more melodic, string-accented material of the Ben E King school. It's all nice – and a joy to have collected on CD! Tracks include "How Can I Forget", "Janet", "Don't Laugh", "Poor Boy", "Country Girl", "I've Got A Woman", "I Lied", "One More Thing", "Hollywood" and more! CD

Funky funky female soul! Marva Whitney was one of the greatest singers in the James Brown stable of stars during the late 60s – and she sang with a hard raw style worth of The Godfather himself! Brother James produced and wrote a good part of this classic album – and the record is one of the greatest JB albums of all time! Nearly every cut's a winner – like the sample classic "Unwind Yourself", which has a crazy corkscrew sax line, or the massive two-part remake of the Isley's "It's Your Thing" (titled "It's My Thing"), or the slowly funky "Get Out Of My Life", or the massive duet with Bobby Byrd "You Got To Have A Job", or the classic instrumental "In The Middle".

Richard WilliamsNew Horn In Town (Japanese pressing) ... CD
King/Candid (Japan), 1960. Used ... $11.99
A brilliant session of modernist hardbop – one of the few records ever cut as a leader by trumpeter Richard Williams! Williams was a key part of the Charles Mingus group for a few years – and his soulful approach ranks with Ted Curson as some of the most compelling underground trumpet work of the early 60s. The set features Williams in a great group – with Leo Wright on alto, Reggie Workman on bass, Richard Wyands on piano, and Bobby Thomas on drums – and they're playing material that isn't too far out, but which does have significantly modern tendencies. Williams solos are fantastic, and the album is proof that he was one of the 60s great under-recognized talents! Titles include "Ferris Wheel", "Blues In A Quandry", "Raucous Notes", and "Renita's Bounce". CD

✨✧ Bobby HutchersonCruisin The Bird ... LP
Landmark, 1988. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An incredible record from Bobby Hutcherson – easily one of his best of the 80s, and with some great touches that recall his best 70s work! The album title might fool you into thinking that Bobby's working in Charlier Parker territory here – but he's not, and is instead grooving in a mellow and soulful west coast mode – working with a totally great group that includes Ralph Moore on tenor and soprano sax, Buddy Montgomery on piano, Rufus Reid on bass, and Victor Lewis on drums. The whole album's a magical picture of tone, color, and light – but the especially standout track is "Sierra" – a totally killer number that has these arch angles and edges that rival the best sounds heard on Hutcherson's Montara album! Other titles include "On The Delta", "Crusisin The Bird", "Imminent Treasures", and "All Or Nothing At All". LP, Vinyl record album

Atlantic/Edsel (UK), 1966. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
In A Broadway Bag is exactly that – Bobby Darin taking on some of the biggest Broadway tunes of his generation – and doing a pretty darn good job as well! Arrangements are by Shorty Rogers and Perry Botkin, both of whom bring a hip flair to the proceedings – a sound that's usually a fair bit more swinging and jazz-based than you'd hear if you were catching these songs in their original settings. Darin's finger-snapping style is a great one for these tunes – bringing out all their sharper edges in ways that other 60s performers don't always get. Titles include "Night Song", "Try To Remember", "Once Upon A Time", "The Other Half Of Me", "I Believe In You", "It's Today", and "Everybody Has The Right To Be Wrong". 50th Anniversary CD has 3 bonus tracks: "Walking In The Shadow Of Love", "Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf?" and "Merci Cherie".

A sweet set that has Bobby Darin working partially in that more adult 60s mode that was influenced strongly by changes in soundtrack styles – especially that 60s trend towards letting some serious younger songwriters pen important tunes for the titles. There's also a few older tracks as well, and these dominate on the second half, but combine really nicely with the more contemporary ones in sound and spirit – arranged by Shorty Rogers and Richard Wess with a lightly easygoing approach. Titles include "The Shadow Of Your Smile", "I Will Wait For You", "The Sweetheart Tree", "Cute", "After You've Gone", "Liza", "What's New Pussycat", and the Darin original "Rainin". This 50th Anniversary CD edition has 4 bonus tracks, too: "We Didn't Ask To Be Brought Here", "Funny What Love Can Do", "The Breaking Point" and "Silver Dollar". CD

Bobby Bare with Skeeter Davis, Liz Anderson, & NorTunes For Two/The Game Of Triangles/Your Husband My Wife (with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/Morello (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $11.99
A trio of albums that pair RCA country star Bobby Bare with some of the label's female singers – all brought together with bonus tracks too! Tunes For Two is one of the magical pairings of Bobby Bare and Skeeter Davis – both rising stars in the RCA country lineup of the 60s – each with their own sort of special sound! Skeeter's got a heartbreaking mode that's kind of post-Patsy Cline – perfect for the slower, blue-tinged tracks on the set – and a nice contrast with the more natural approach of Bobby – who's always got his emotions handy, but also often with a wry eye that lets him put things in perspective. The pair duet directly on most numbers – instead of singing back and forth – and titles include "In The Misty Moonlight", "Dear John Letter", "Too Used To Being With You", "True Love", "Let It Be Me", and "We Must Have Been Out Of Our Minds". Game Of Triangles is a compelling take on the country duo mode of the 60s – an album that features some tracks that have all three singers working together – beautiful "love triangle" numbers – then more tracks that feature each singer on their own! The triangle numbers are especially compelling – and include "One Among The Three Of Us", "Bye Bye Love", "Three Mixed Up Hearts", "Which One Is To Blame", and "The Game Of Triangles" – a really fresh version of country heartbreak modes. Other cuts are nice, too – and include Bobby Bare singing "Homesick" and "Guess I'll Move On Down The Line", Liz Anderson singing "The Wife Of The Party" and "Fairytale", and Norma Jean singing "Pursuing Happiness" and "Don't Let That Doorknob Hit You". Last up is Your Husband My Wife – a set that has the duo of Bare and Davis really maturing nicely – hitting modes that are a lot more country than some of Skeeter's early pop material, with beautiful back/forth vocals that open up the well-penned tunes of heartbreak and the struggles of love to survive. Titles include "Before The Sunrise", "Let's Make Love Not War", "There Never Was A Time", "A Truer Love You'll Never Find", and the great "Your Husband My Wife". CD features three more bonus tracks – "Vegas" by Bare with Jeannie Bare, "No Memories Hangin Round" by Bare with Rosanne Cash, and "It's A Dirty Job" by Bare with Lacy J Dalton. CD

An incredible document of a lost avant cinema classic – Bobby Beausoleil's rare soundtrack to the late Kenneth Anger film Luicfer Rising. The music, like the film, is incredibly spooky stuff – long, moody guitar-based tracks that spin out into the darkness – invoking the demonic magikal powers that Anger directed with his cinema, and performed in a spare, unredemptive style that is incredibly chilling. Forget all the later 70s horror soundtracks that dominated the genre, because Beausoleil pretty much set the whole tone himself in this recording! Beausoleil plays guitar and keyboards, with his Freedom Orchestra group – and the music was recorded in Tracy Prison, where Bobby was incarcerated during the time he created these sounds!

✨✧ Bobby BlandGet On Down With Bobby Bland ... LP
ABC, 1975. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Brilliant later work by Bobby Blue Bland – done with backings that are much fuller than on his earlier albums – a mixture of strings and horns that really expand the sound! That doesn't keep things from being soulful, though – as Bobby's in incredible form vocally, really rising to the occasion of the session with some of his best vocal performances of the decade. Great throughout – and one of his few true classic sessions after the early Duke years. Titles include "Today I Started Loving You Again", "I Take It On Home", "I Hate You", "If Fingerprints Showed Up On Skin", and "Too Far Gone". LP, Vinyl record album

Duke, 1967. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Fantastic stuff, like all of Bobby's early Duke albums, and a breathtaking mix of soul and R&B, with some nice jazzy touches in the arrangements. Tracks include "Wouldn't You Rather Have Me", "Ask Me Nothin' About The Blues", "Gotta Get To Know You", and "You Ought To Be Ashamed". Great stuff, and Bobby's voice is wonderful!

Bobby Blue BlandDreamer ... LP
ABC, 1974. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $19.99
Sure it's not his Duke recordings, and sure, the sound's a bit 70s-ish – but Bobby's voice is always fantastic, and he still sounds great in this smooth batch of tracks recorded in LA. Backings were arranged and conducted by Michael Omartian – but it's Bobby's vocals that really make the set shine. Titles include "Ain't No Love In The Heart Of The City", "The End Of The Road", "I Ain't Gonna Be The Fist To Cry", "Dreamer", "Who's Foolin Who", "Cold Day In Hell", "Lovin On Borrowed Time", and "Yolanda".

✨✧ Bobby Blue BlandFurther On Up The Road – The Duke Recordings 1955 to 1962 ... CD
Southern Routes, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $9.99 17.99
There's nobody like Bobby Blue Bland on Duke Records – especially during the early years that are featured on this collection! Bland came out of Memphis with a very unique, really amazing sound right from the start – an approach to blues that was a lot more sophisticated than most of his contemporaries, even those on the LA scene – with lots of jazz in his phrasing, and his backings as well – and this sublime vocal approach that often had Bobby growling in a way that seemed to come from deep down in the depths of his soul, but never in any sort of gimmicky sort of style. Bland was always the perfect balance of cool, class, and outright blues power – and that was never more true than on these sides. 2CD set features a whopping 57 tracks in all – with titles that include "It's My Life Baby", "Honey Bee", "I'm Not Ashamed", "Is It Real", "I Can't Put You Down Baby", "Don't Want No Woman", "Loan Me A Helping Hand", "Bobby's Blues", "You've Got Bad Intentions", "I'll Take Care Of You", "Cry Cry Cry", "You're Worth It All", "That's The Way Love Is", "Call On Me", "Blue Moon", "I've Just Got To Forget You", and "How Does A Cheatin Woman Feel".

Bobby Bradford/Frode Gjerstad QuartetDelaware River ... LP
No Business (Lithuania), 2015. New Copy ... $21.99
The legendary Bobby Bradford at his freest – blowing well-crafted long lines on cornet, which often skirt a large sonic range in just a short space – and getting some really great company on the date from the trio of Frode Gjerdsted on alto and b flat clarinet, Ingebrigt Haker Flaten on bass, and Frank Rosaly on drums! All four players are tremendous – each bold leaders on their own, and working as a quartet with four very strong corners – all musical elements that ruminate in very separate space, yet somehow square up the album through a strong sense of complementary energy! The album fetaures one long improvised performance from Philadelphia – and titles include "Sailing Up The", "Delaware", "River In", "1965 Was Amazing". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 400 records.)

Bobby Bradford/Hafez Modirzadeh/Mark Dresser/AlexLive At The Open Gate ... LP
No Business (Lithuania), 2016. New Copy ... $21.99
The great Bobby Bradford hasn't dimmed at all over the years – and he sounds wonderful here on cornet in the company of Hafez Modirzadeh on alto, Mark Dresser on bass, and Alex Cline on drums! The performance is a live one, but the songs have a nicely compact approach – no side-long improvisations, and instead these shorter musical moments that really show the players working together with a strong sort of sympathy – especially Bradford and Modirazedh, who trade tones in this beautifully evocative style. Titles include "Facet 5", "Dresser Only", "Song For The Unsung", "For Bradford", and "Steadfast". LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby ColePoint Of View ... CD
P-Vine (Japan), 1964/1990s. New Copy ... $24.99
An incredible treasure from a lost vocal jazz genius – the little-known Bobby Cole, every bit as great a singer as he was a songwriter, very unusual for the time! Bobby was probably best remembered as the house pianist at Jillys, but at the time of this 1964 recording, he was poised to emerge as a serious vocalist with a rich talent for penning interesting and witty little tunes. The album's got Bobby singing in a style that's halfway between Matt Dennis and Mark Murphy – with the sophisticated talents of both in place, and perhaps a bit of the wit of Bob Dorough or Roy Kral. The original album features Bobby on piano and vocals, with only bass and drums behind him – and the CD features a bonus 6 tracks recorded in more recent years, with larger backings. The core album is completely brilliant – the kind of off-kilter vocal record we die for – and every track's a fresh original by Bobby! Titles include "You Can't Build A Life On A Look", "Heat", "You Could Hear A Pin Drop", "Change Of Scene", "A Perfect Day", "Elegy For Eve", and "Status Quo". CD

Bobby Darin & Johnny MercerTwo Of A Kind ... LP
Atco, 1960. Very Good ... $1.99
A really surprising pairing of talents – and one that makes the album one of the real standouts from the early Bobby Darin years on Atco Records! Johnny Mercer was one of the coolest, grooviest songwriters of the 40s – and he was also a singer with a hell of a lot of charm – which makes him a perfect match here for Darin, who was a master showman right from the start! The pair trade lines wonderfully, and get the right sort of jazzy backings from Billy May – who knows how to keep things swinging, and lift the spirits of the set! The album starts and ends with the warm title cut "Two Of A Kind" – co-written by the pair – and other titles include some great Mercer compositions, plus other titles too – with tracks that include "Ace In The Hole", "East Of The Rockies", "Bob White", "Mississippi Mud", and "Who Takes Care Of The Caretaker's Daughter".

Bobby HutchersonMontara ... CD
Blue Note, 1975. Used ... $13.99
One of our favorite Bobby Hutcherson albums ever – and a magical session filled with electric Latin vibes! The album's quite a different one for Bobby at the time – as it has him working with some larger arrangements, in a soulful west coast groove that's almost got the feel of a hip 70s soundtrack. Bobby's vibes are nicely set up against Fender Rhodes on most tracks – and the group's got some added Latin percussion that really opens up the rhythms. The whole thing's totally wonderful – brimming over with sun and soul, the kind of magic record that will never be made again! Tracks include "Camel Rise", "Yuyo", "Montara", "La Malanga", "Little Angel", and "Love Song". CD

Bobby JasparBobby Jaspar (Riverside) (aka Tenor & Flute) ... CD
Riverside/OJC, 1957. Used ... $8.99
One of the few US releases by 50s Belgian reedman Bobby Jaspar – a talent who graced countless European sessions at the time, but who's working here in a rare date with an American group! As on other albums from the period, Jaspar plays both tenor and flute – alternating between instruments on different tracks, in the manner of sessions by Frank Wess or Jerome Richardson from the time. The rest of the group really gives the album a nice punch – with George Wallinton on piano, Wilbur Little on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums – plus Idrees Sulieman on trumpet on about half the tracks on the set! The songs are mainly original compositions by the band members and they include Jaspar's "Seven Up", Sulieman's "Doublemint", Wallington's "Before Dawn" and "Sweet Blanche". CD also features the bonus track "The Fuzz". CD

Bobby Vince PaunettoModern Sound Of Bobby Paunetto/El Sonido Moderno ... LP
Madri Gras, Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
One of our favorite Latin jazz albums ever – and a truly amazing record! Bobby Pauntteo, aka Bobby Vince Paunetto, is probably best known for his groundbreaking Latin fusion albums of the NuYorican era – but this rare gem from the 60s shows that he was a really forward thinker, even at a younger age! The sound is incredibly hard to define – a blend of modal jazz, Latin rhythms, and a uniquely lyrical approach to the percussion that makes the record take off to places you'd never expect. Bobby's conception is mindblowing from start to finish – and the record's even got some wonderful tracks that feature English vocals on top of the hip vibes-driven sound of the instrumentation. A gem throughout – and the kind of record we'll take to the grave! Titles include "Aguantando", "Why Is Woody Sad?", "Mambo Sevilla", "El Senor Sid", and "Dig It Like It Is". Great stuff!

Bobby PrevitePushing The Envelope ... LP
Gramavision, 1987. Near Mint- ... $9.99
One of a number of strong mid 80s sessions from drummer Bobby Previte – and like the others, as much an exploration of space and sound as it is an expression of jazz-based ideals. The group on the set is well-suited for the project – and includes Marty Erlich on tenor, Wayne Horvitz on piano, and Tom Varner on French Horn – working with Previte in a set of tracks that have a very textural quality, and which stand at times almost like soundscapes from the East Village performance scene, or soundtrack work from the time. Titles include "Open World", "Mirror Mirror", "Pushing The Envelope", and "Once". LP, Vinyl record album
