Buddy MilesBicentennial Gathering Of The Tribes ... LP
Casablanca, 1976. Near Mint- ... $1.99
Buddy Miles hits the Bicentennial, and he's giving a nod to Native Americans on the cover – although a few years late of that trend in comparison to efforts by other singers of his generation! The album's also an obscure date for Casablanca – one that has Miles in smoother soul territory than before, but still with a bit more edge than other artists on the disco powerhouse label. Buddy produced himself, and the tunes are an updated version of the rock/soul vibe laid down by Miles on the early Mercury albums – taken to territory that's a bit smoother 70s, yet still with strong crossover appeal. Titles include "Inflation", "Now's The Time", "Where You Gonna Run To Lady", "Grecian Lady", "Won't You Be My Friend", and "Wake Me Shake Me". LP, Vinyl record album

Buddy MilesChapter VII ... CD
CBS/Wounded Bird, 1973. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
A killer chapter in the great early run of Buddy Miles – really genre-busting work that managed to cross over big to a number of crowds back in the day! As with his Mercury work, Miles has a wicked mix of soul, funk, rock, and blues going on here – but one that's percolated together strongly, so that it's not just a cribbing of famous styles – and instead comes across as something really new in the process – kind of a fresh vibe for all the cats who were willing to cross the tracks and change things up in their music at the time. Johnny Bristol handles production for the set, but it's still got the heavy groove you'd find on earlier Miles records – and the album features guest appearances from Carlos Santana, plus Latin percussion luminaries Wille Bobo and Victor Pantoja. Titles include "LA Resurrection", "Life Is What You Make It (parts 1 & 2)", "Elvira", "Hear No Evil", "Love Affair", "Visions", and "Crossfire". CD

Buddy MilesElectric Church ... LP
Mercury, Late 60s. Very Good ... $6.99
Bluesy soul from Buddy Miles – an album that was half-produced by Jimi Hendrix, and which showcases the really crowd-pleasing side of Miles' sound! Tracks are a mix of soul covers and original numbers – done in a mode that puts plenty of guitar out front in the mix, and which uses Buddy's screaming vocals a bit more than his heavier drums. Horns are used on most numbers to give them a bit of southern soul inflection, and titles include a great live jamming take on "Wrap It Up", the funky "Destructive Love", and the cuts "Cigarettes & Coffee", "Miss Lady", "Texas", and "My Chant". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has split seams held with pieces of tape, and some marker on front.)

✨✧ Buddy MilesThem Changes ... LP
Mercury, 1970. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $14.99
A landmark crossover album – featuring Buddy Miles' mixed Freedom Express group, and a heavy jazz-rock sound that would soon dominate the charts with other groups. Buddy's drums are super-heavy, even if his vocals always get us the wrong way. Includes the original recording of "Them Changes", plus "Memphis Train", "Your Feeling Is Mine", "Dreams", and "Down By The River". One for the Fillmore crowd! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Buddy MilesWe Got To Live Together ... LP
Mercury, Late 60s. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Pure crossover genius from Buddy Miles – a great mix of funky soul and rockish touches – and the kind of record that easily put Buddy in the same camp as Sly Stone or The Isley Brothers with mainstream audiences of the time! Tracks here are a bit longer and more jamming than work by either of those two artists – with the kind of heavy guitar and horns that played heavily to the Fillmore crowd – but the overall sound of the record is a fair bit more soulful and even funkier than some other Miles' efforts from the earlier years too, with plenty of his tight drums in the mix! Titles include a great 12 minute reading of the title track "We Got To Live Together" – plus "Take It Off Him & Put It On Me", "Runaway Child", "Walking Down The Highway", and "Easy Greasy".

Lennie Tristano/Bill Harris/Miles Davis/Buddy De FCool & Quiet ... LP
Capitol, Late 40s. Near Mint- ... $28.99
A great "birth of the cool" album from Capitol – a record that brings together some key recordings from that pivotal jazz year of 1949! Titles include "Imagination" by a large group with Bill Harris in the lead on trombone; "Wow", "Marionette", and "Yesterdays" from a great Lennie Tristano group with Warne Marsh on tenor, Lee Konitz on alto, and Billy Bauer on guitar; "Boplicity" by Miles Davis with JJ Johnson and Lee Konitz; and "Penthouse Serenade", "Extrovert", and "Good For Nothin Joe" by a quintet with Buddy DeFranco on clarinet and Teddy Cohen on vibes. The album's always best known for the work by Davis and Tristano – but honestly, we love the Konitz and Teddy Charles material even better! LP, Vinyl record album
(Turquoise label pressing – in very nice shape!)

Roberta FlackBustin Loose – Original Soundtrack ... LP
MCA, 1981. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Certainly one of the lesser sorts of soul soundtracks that you'll find, and an easily overlooked Roberta Flack record consisting of tracks for this low-budget comedy with Cicely Tyson and Richard Pryor. The music's mostly in an electric modern soul vein – even the instrumental bits – and arrangements are by Barry Miles, Marcus Miller, Buddy Williams, and Roberta herself – who also produced the album. Titles include "Love (Always Commands)", "Lovin You (Is Such An Easy Thing To Do)", "Rollin On", "Qual E Malindrinho", and "Hittin Me Where It Hurts". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout hole and a partially split top seam.)

Jimi HendrixBurning Desire (limited numbered edition) (2015 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Legacy, 1969/1970. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $39.99
Jimi Hendrix instrumental studio sessions circa 1969 and 1970 – one of best of the "authorized bootleg" releases from by Hendrix estate over the years – with some really great all instrumental jams with the heaviness and drive we know and love, with some looser and more exploratory material that's pretty amazing, too! Recorded at the Record Plant throughout '69 & '70 with bassist Billy Cox and drummer Buddy Miles, and it's pretty incredible stuff! Titles include "Ezy Ryder," "Cherokee Mist/Astro Man", "Villanova Junction Blues," "Izabella," and "Burning Desire." LP, Vinyl record album
(First time on vinyl! First pressing limited to 5000 numbered copies.)

Gloria WalkerLove Is In The Air/Them Changes ... 7-inch
Federal, Late 60s. Very Good ... $1.99
Classic work from Gloria Taylor – a hip southern singer who was halfway between Ann Sexton and Tina Turner, and who sadly never seemed to cut an album. "Love Is In The Air" is a sweet ballad number – done with a slightly polished edge that gives it a more mature sound than some of Gloria's other work. "Them Changes" is a funky vocal cover of the Buddy Miles song – done with lots of fuzzed-out guitars! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Maxine Sullivan/Buddy TateHighlights In Jazz ... CD
Storyville/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1987. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The last-ever performance from singer Maxine Sullivan – a vocalist best known for her work of the 50s, but one who kept on going strong for many years later! This set captures Sullivan in a completely charming elder mode – speaking a bit before most songs, and imbuing the performance with a strong sense of history – but one that's hardly needed in speech form, given that her raspy vocal tone speaks volumes in itself! Backing is from a combo that features Derek Smith on piano, Milt Hinton on bass, and Butch Miles on drums – on titles that include "As Long As You Live", "A Hundred Years From Today", "You're A Lucky Guy", and "Just One Of Those Things". But then things flip over entirely on the second half of the record, as Sullivan steps aside to let Buddy Tate's tenor come into the spotlight – as Buddy blows with a similar group, plus a few added horns – on titles that include "In A Mellotone", "I Can't Get Started", "Blues For Jack", and "Jumpin At The Woodside". Both Sullivan and Tate join together at the end – in a reading of "St Louis Blues". CD

✨✧ Muddy WatersFathers & Sons ... LP
Chess, 1969. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the biggest albums of Muddy Waters' career – a key crossover effort that has Waters as the "father" working with "sons" Paul Butterfield and Michael Bloomfield! The style here is still quite rootsy overall – and the double-length session features one album recorded in the studio, and a second done live at the Super Cosmic Joy-Scout Jamboree – key evidence of the growing hippie audience for blues like this! The core group features Waters on vocals with Otis Spann on piano, Mike Bloomfield on guitar, Paul Butterfield on harmonica, Donald Duck Dunn on bass, and Sam Lay on drums – and guest players include Phil Upchurch on bass and Buddy Miles on drums – each on one number. Titles include "All Aboard", "Mean Disposition", "Forty Days & Forty Nights", "Sugar Sweet", "Twenty Four Hours", "I'm Ready", "Walkin Thru The Park", "Got My Mojo Working (parts 1 & 2)", "The Same Thing", "Baby Please Don't Go", and "Honey Bee".

✨✧ John McLaughlinDevotion ... CD
Douglas/Charly (UK), 1970. Used ... Out Of Stock
An intensely jamming album from guitarist John McLaughlin – and a record that set a whole new tone for electric jazz in the 70s! The album was recorded shortly after McLaughlin's work with Miles Davis on Bitches Brew and Tony Williams on the first Emergency album – and in a way, it's a key piece of the jazz-rock fusion puzzle that has those two sets as cornerstones. McLaughlin's working here with keyboardist Larry Young from the Emergency group – playing both his usual organ on the record, plus a bit of electric piano – and the rest of the group includes bassist Billy Rich, plus superdrummer Buddy Miles – really giving a lot of power to the album's sound at the bottom! McLaughlin is getting into a bit of his mystic trip on the record, but is still playing with a lot of electric power here – plenty distorted and fuzzy on most numbers, and really jamming throughout! Titles include "Devotion", "Dragon Song", "Marbles", "Siren", "Don't Let The Dragon Eat Your Mother", and "Purpose Of When". CD

✨✧ Electric Flag/Paul BeaverTrip – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Sidewalk/Curb, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the trippiest soundtracks of the 60s – a wonderful blend of psych tracks from The Electric Flag, and moogier electronic moments from the great Paul Beaver! The Flag are at their best here – playing tunes that move from short bursts of fuzz to longer jams – laid out with great work from Mike Bloomfield and Nick Gravenites on guitars, Barry Goldberg on organ, and Buddy Miles on drums – with a nice sense of arrangement and juxtaposition that rivals Spirit's equally great soundtrack material for Model Shop. This one's more of an all-out rocker – although the moog balances things out nicely – and the whole thing's definitely a cut above the usual thrown-together exploitation soundtrack of the period. There's lots of little crazy cuts, and a long one called "Fine Jung Thing" – plus the titles "Gettin' Hard", "Peter Gets Off", "The Other Ed Norton", "Psyche Soap", and "Joint Passing".

World Pacific, Mid 50s. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $11.99
A 60s LP that compiles older work by Chet – all classic numbers from his first few years in the recording studio, when his sound was fresh, sincere, and incredibly amazing! The album features Chet singing on most numbers, working in small combo format on trumpet – with players that include Russ Freeman on piano, Jimmy Bond on bass, and Lawrence Marable on drums. Titles include "My Buddy", "Bea's Flat", "But Not For Me", "Happy Little Sunbeam", "Tenderly", and "Look For The Silver Lining". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Charles EarlandLiving Black (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Prestige, 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A stone cold live date from Charles Earland – recorded in Newark, at just the sort of club where he got his start! The tracks are quite long and openly grooving – even more so than Charles' killer studio sets from the time – and there's a bit of a harder edge here too, thanks partly to the live setting – and to the amazing young tenor work of Grover Washington Jr, who really sounds incredible here – much harder than in his later Kudu years! Other members of the group include trumpeter Gary Chandler – playing with a sound that's right up there with his landmark date on Eastbound Records – plus Maynard Parker on guitar, Jesse Kilpatrick on drums, and Buddy Caldwell on congas. As usual, Charles doesn't need a bassist to help him find a nice chunky bottom on the tunes – and he really sails out majestically throughout, with those famous long-running solo lines of his on the Hammond! Titles include "Killer Joe", "Milestones", and "Key Club Cookout". CD also features 2 bonus tracks – "More Today Than Yesterday" and "Message From A Black Man". CD
