✨✧ 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 MilesMessage To The People ... LP
Mercury, Late 60s. Very Good- Gatefold ... $6.99
A classic bit of tripped-out soul from Buddy Miles – put together with a lot of nice psychedelic production, and an overall sound that stays nice and deep on the bottom end of things – and lets Buddy rock out heavily on rootsy vocals. There's no real standout funky numbers, but the overall sound of the album is very much inspired by the sound of funk – as well as some of the funk/rock crossovers of the time – and titles include "Joe Tex", "Place Over There", "The Segment", "Don't Keep Me Wondering", "Sudden Stop", and "That's The Way Life Is".

Buddy MilesWe Got To Live Together ... LP
Mercury, Late 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $9.99
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".

✨✧ Buddy MilesElectric Church ... LP
Mercury, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

Electric Flag/Paul BeaverTrip – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Sidewalk/Curb, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $17.99 19.98
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".

✨✧ John McLaughlinDevotion ... LP
Douglas, 1970. Very Good Gatefold ... $4.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Sarah VaughanSarah Vaughan In Hi Fi ... LP
Columbia, 1955. Very Good ... $14.99
One of Sarah's few albums for Columbia – and quite possibly the best, thanks to some great small group backing, heard on 8 of the album's 12 tunes! The group's a really great one – with Miles Davis on trumpet, Benny Green on trombone, Buddy Johnson on tenor, Tony Scott on clarinet, Mundell Lowe on guitar, and Billy Taylor on piano – all of whom get some surprising solo space on the album, and make the record one of Sarah's best jazz outings of the 50s. The remaining tracks on the set have a lusher ballad style, but are still quite nice – and titles include "Mean To Me", "Goodnight My Love", "Can't Get Out Of This Mood", "East Of The Sun", "Pinky", "Ooh Whatcha Doin To Me", and "Come Rain Or Come Shine". LP, Vinyl record album
(6 eye pressing with deep groove. Cover has a small split in the top seam & a bit of marker.)

Gloria WalkerLove Is In The Air/Them Changes ... 7-inch
Federal, Late 60s. Very Good ... $6.99
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

✨✧ VariousGroove – Belgium Popcorn – Blended Soul & R&B With Eastern Promise ... CD
Outta Sight (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Not entirely soul, but not really pop either – and instead a special sort of space that's always been dug by soul fans in the Belgian scene! The groove here was dubbed "popcorn" many years back – and it features soulful vocals coming into play with tight 60s production – stomping rhythms, sparkling strings, and perfect production that often brings in some cool echoey touches to the mix! The feel here is quite different than the usual northern soul set of this nature – and a great illustration that there's still so much to learn about 60s soul music in general – as evidenced by the range of artists included, and the great record label images inside the cover! Titles include "Promised Land" by Buddy Lamp, "I Gotta Run" by Bobby Scott, "That's All It Takes" by Carrol Connors, "Let Her Go" by Gene Stridel, "Steady Cha Cha" by Frank Pizani, "Quite Girl" by Don Rondo, "Cha Cha Italiano" by Mary Mazza, "You'll Come Back" by Ronny Douglas, and "Living Dream" by Lenny Miles.

✨✧ Ray Bryant TrioCon Alma/Little Susie ... CD
Fresh Sound (Spain), 1959/1960. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Pure genius from Ray Bryant – Con Alma – the kind of a record that few other players could ever hope to cut, and a fantastic demonstration of Ray's extremely soulful approach to the trio format! Bryant's working here with Bill Lee on bass and Mickey Roker on drums – in a triple-burning setting that has all players contributing equally to the groove – and often working strongly to create a great sense of counterpoint in the rhythms. Roker's drums are magically playful throughout – snapping and skipping along the top of the snare in a way that only furthers the rhythmic agenda of Bryant's piano. And Lee's bass has a laidback and mellow delight – one that rings out alongside the keys of the piano, and fleshes them out with some additional depth and color. The title track is a brilliant reading of "Con Alma", and the set also features Bryant's famous tune "Cubano Chant" – as well as the titles "Autumn Leaves", "Milestones", "Nuts & Bolts", and "C Jam Blues". Little Susie, a hard-hitting trio recording from Ray – one of his early albums for Columbia, and the record that gave him a big hit! "Little Susie" is one of those early 60s soul jazz standards, the kind of catchy tune that got played all over the place on radio, and which forever put the artist at the top of the list for recording dates and live sets for a few years. Ray's riding high here – with a trio that features brother Tommy Bryant on bass, and either Eddie Locke or Gus Johnson on drums – and the album's got lots of other short tracks with a similar down-home soul jazz kind of approach. Titles include "Blues For Norine", "Big Buddy", "By Myself", and "If I Can Just Make It". CD

✨✧ Chet BakerChet Baker Plays & Sings (Jazz Milestones pressing) ... LP
World Pacific, Mid 50s. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
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
