✨✧ O'JaysIdentify Yourself ... CD
Philadelphia International, 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The O'Jays keep on going strong – hitting a smooth mellow Philly vibe that takes them away from the style of their mid 70s hits! The sound here is a bit more uptempo than on the previous album So Full Off Love – but the group are still also really using the time to explore their mellower side – kicking back in a warm and sophisticated mode that really shows the Philly sound growing up at the end of the 70s. Ballad highlights include the mellow stepper "Hurry Up & Come Back", plus "Forever Mine" and "I Want You Here With Me" – and more uptempo cuts include "So Nice I Tried It Twice", "One In A Million", and "Sing A Happy Song".

Pepper AdamsJulian ... LP
Inner City, 1975. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A great quartet date – nice and laidback, with plenty of room for Pepper Adams to open up on his deep-toned baritone sax! The group features Walter Norris on piano – and titles include "Ad Astra", "Jirge", "Spacemaker", and "Three & One". LP, Vinyl record album

Albert AylerLive In Greenwich Village – The Complete Impulse Recordings ... CD
Impulse, 1966. Used 2CD ... $9.99
Essential stuff! This 2 CD set includes the entirety of Albert Ayler's Live In Greenwich Village album – plus a huge amount of previously unreleased live material, played by the Ayler group in New York, during 1966 and 1967. Ayler's brother Don is on trumpet, and other players include Joel Freedman, George Steele, Bill Fowell, Beaver Harris, Sunny Murray, Alan Silva, and Henry Grimes. The tracks have the same intensity of Ayler's ESP work – and many tunes are quite long, very free and open. Titles include "Light In Darkness", "Divine Peacemaker", "Angels", "Omega Is The Alpha", "Universal Thoughts", "Change Has Come", "Infinite Spirit", and "Spiritual Rebirth". 14 tracks in all – and one of the most important slices of Ayler's career!

Gene ChandlerTwo Sides Of Gene Chandler ... LP
Brunswick, 1969. Very Good ... $5.99
A fantastic lost album by the great Gene Chandler – and one of his most sophisticated soul documents! The record was Gene's last album for Brunswick – issued shortly before Gene scored big once again on Mercury, which is why it's probably often lost in the shuffle of time. The record's got some incredibly dark material that shows a different side of Gene than you'd expect from earlier hits – including the incredible track "Suicide", which is a magnificent "Iceman" track in the Chicago tradition, that features the main character contemplating suicide as a means of dealing with his sorrow. Other titles include "If You Would Love Me", "The Sun Died", "This Bitter Earth", "Eleanor Rigby", and a remake of "Can I Change My Mind". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cut corner.)

Lou DonaldsonNatural Soul ... LP
Blue Note, 1962. Very Good ... $59.99
A pivotal record from Lou Donaldson – one that has him forging out some of his first funky soul jazz sounds, moving from his bop roots, and working with a hip young group that includes Grant Green and John Patton, both of whom he discovered and brought to Blue Note (thanks Lou!) The tracks have a tight jaunty feel – very much like those on Patton's mid 60s sides for Blue Note, with lots of room for each player to solo intently – but still a strong focus on the overall groove of the ensemble. Cover's very nice – and tracks include "Funky Mama", "Spaceman Twist", and "Nice n Greasy". LP, Vinyl record album
(New York mono pressing. Cover has some waviness & a split bottom seam due to moisture, with a "Contains" sticker.)

Garland GreenGet Rich Quick/You Can't Get Away That Easy ... 7-inch
Cotillion, Early 70s. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Obscure work by Garland Green – recorded for Atlantic after his hit LP on Uni, and never issued on LP! "Get Rich Quick" is sort of a throwaway righteous uptempo number, but "You Can't Get Away That Easy" is a great one – a sad mellow number written by Terry Callier and Billy Butler, with a smooth sound that really brings out Garland's Iceman soul style. Great stuff – and with arrangements by Riley Hampton. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Garland GreenLove Is What We Came Here For ... LP
RCA, 1977. Very Good+ ... $9.99
Tougher to find than his classic on UNI, believe it or not. Leon Haywood produced this, and it's got a much smoother feel than Garland Green's UNI hits, which is a great way to hear the smooth soul of Chicago's second (or third) Iceman. Lots of nice ones here, like "I've Quit Running the Streets", "Moody Woman", and the great title cut, plus "I Found Myself When I Lost You", "Lovin You Baby" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover is heavily stained and wrinkled on the bottom half, with a promo stamp on back, and a large radio station sticker on front.)

Ice Man's BandIntroducing The Ice Man's Band ... LP
Mercury, 1972. Very Good Gatefold ... $6.99
A pretty great album by The Ice Man's Band – the instrumental group who worked behind Jerry "Iceman" Butler on some of his cool early 70s work. The album's nice and laidback – with some very nice mellow keyboards and smooth dope guitar, and the whole thing's a very nice kicked-back instrumental set. Reggie Burke is on the keys, and the real highlight on here is the group's amazing cover of "People Make the World Go Round", a sample favorite from way back! Also includes "It's Down to That", "To Be Continued", "I Wanna Be Where You Are", and a bunch of Jerry Butler hits. LP, Vinyl record album

Walter JacksonSpeak Her Name ... LP
Okeh, 1967. Very Good ... $14.99
Unbelievably beautiful work – and possibly the greatest album ever from the mighty Walter Jackson! Jackson was one of the best singers to come out of the Chicago soul scene of the 60s, and his Okeh recordings are a perfect example of the city's sophisticated approach to Iceman soul – as perfected by Walter, Jerry Butler, and (later) Garland Green. The arrangements are by Riley Hampton, and they have a cold fragile beauty that lingers somewhere between a Scott Walker album and Riley's earlier work with Lorez Alexandria – and the no-filler selection of songs is one of Jackson's best ever– a range of work that really show his deep talents, and his maturing approach to a tune – proud, powerful, and a new level of adult sophistication in soul. Titles include the amazing title cut "Speak Her Name" – plus "Corner In The Sun", "My One Chance To Make It", "It's An Uphill Climb To The Bottom", and "Not You". Fantastic stuff, and one of the most powerful soul records we can think of! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Harry NilssonSon Of Schmilsson ... LP
RCA, 1972. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $9.99
One of the wilder sets from Nillsson – careening from lovely piano pop with romantic vocals, to spaced out, good humored potty mouth excess – near honky tonk, to fuzzy pop rock – if you like Nilsson at his most unhinged, this is a great one! It's a stunner, actually – with somehow good-natured rageful tunes to sweeter odes to the ladies, it's Nilsson through and through. Titles include "Take 54", "Turn On Your Radio", "Spaceman", "The Lottery Song", "Ambush", "I'd Rather Be Dead", "The Most Beautiful Girl In The World" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve & poster! Cover has light wear & a cutout notch.)

Al PerkinsYes, My Goodness, Yes/I Stand Accused ... 7-inch
Atco, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Al's an obscure singer – but one with an excellent voice, very much in the "iceman" tradition of Garland Green or Jerry Butler. It's no surprise that he sings Butler's classic "I Stand Accused" on this one, done in a version that's more updated and a bit nicer than the original. "Yes, My Goodness" is a great one, too – and the credits make it appear to be written by Butler and Bobby Womack! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Label has a drillhole.)

✨✧ Sun RaIt's After The End Of The World ... LP
MPS/BASF, 1972. Very Good Gatefold ... $18.99
One of the key non-Saturn Sun Ra albums of the 70s – and like his records for Blue Thumb and Impulse, a set that really helped awaken the world to his talents! This album may well be one of the most bracing of the bunch – as it features live material recorded by Ra and the Arkestra at two different German jazz festivals in 1970 – performances that really have the group at the height of their righteous power, stretching out with a sound that's even more avant than just a few years before! The reed solos are all quite strong – and include work by Pat Patrick, John Gilmore, Danny Davis, Danny Thompson, and Marshall Allen – plus some other oboe, bass clarinet, and bassoon players too – and the lovely June Tyson provides some righteous words in a few spots, while Ra plays a range of keyboards – from clavinet, to farfisa, Hohner electra, mini-moog, Spacemaster, and rocksichord! Titles include "Black Forest Myth", "Strange Dreams – Strange World – Black Myth", and "Myth Versus Reality (The Myth Science Approach)". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some ring & edge wear, a cutout notch and a moderately worn spine.)

Sun RaSolar-Myth Approach Vol 1 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
BYG/Actuel, 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $11.99
Very dark stuff from Sun Ra – one of his records that received wider circulation than most of the Saturn releases of the 70s, and a set that maintains a pretty sharp edge overall! Ra plays some killer keyboards – moog, spacemaster, and acoustic piano – often with these really eerie tones – and other players include Kwame Hadi on trumpet, Akh Tal Ebah on space dimension mellophone, Ali Hassan on trombone, Marshal Allen and Danny Davis on alto and flute, John Gilmore on tenor, and Pat Patrick on baritone – and the whole group vocalizes at points, joined by other singers who include June Tyson and Art Jenkins. Recorded at the Sun studios in New York in 1970, the album features a number of shorter tracks like "Spectrum", "The Satellites Are Spinning", "Seen III, Took 4", "Adventures Of Bugs Hunter", and the longer tracks "Legend" and "The Realm Of Lightning".

Moacir SantosMaestro ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $13.99
Amazing 70s work from Moacir Santos – the first album the Brazilian arranger recorded for Blue Note, and a set that sparkles with warmth and soul from the very first note! The approach is a brilliant updating of the famous sound that Santos crafted in Brazil the decade before – recast here with some warmer elements that includes great organ from Clare Fischer, electric piano from Bill Henderson, trombone from Frank Rosolino, and flute and tenor from Don Menza! Santos sings on a number of tracks, but in this cool angular way that's often right in line with the instrumentation – almost submerged a bit in the mix, as an element that gives the record a strong degree of warmth. The album's unlike any other we can think of – even a bit different than Santos' two other albums for Blue Note – and has a wonderful fusion of influences that never fails to delight our ears over the years! Titles include his version of "Nana", which was performed often by others – plus "Luanne", "Bluishmen", "Kermis", "Mother Iracema", and "Astral Whine". CD

✨✧ Frank StrozierLong Night ... LP
Jazzland, 1961. Very Good+ ... $34.99
An incredible album, and one of Strozier's best! The record is an excellent example of the maturity and modernism that was coming out of the Chicago jazz scene as it hit the early 60s – and it features Strozier's soulful alto in the company of some of the city's best players, like pianist Chris Anderson, drummer Walter Perkins, bassist Bill Lee, and baritonist Pat Patrick, playing here away from Sun Ra's group! The title track alone is an incredibly fantastic composition, full of moodiness and incredible reed work – but the rest of the record's great, too, and features excellent originals like "The Need For Love", "The Crystal Ball", and "Pacemaker". LP, Vinyl record album
(Orange label pressing with deep groove. Cover has some minor splitting on the seams.)

Arthur TressArthur Tress – San Francisco 1964 (hardcover) ... Book
Prestel, 2012. New Copy ... $8.99 39.99
Beautiful images from mid-60s San Francisco – offered up in glorious black and white, in an oversized book that really fits the spirit of the pictures! These aren't just the usual city shots – and instead, often offer up these playful juxtapositions that really make the images jump – a man in a suit next to a gas pump, a mounted policeman next to an empty tricycle, an American flag in front of a truss on a mannequin, a woman standing under a large image of a ham, and many other shots of this nature – very odd and offbeat, showing the city and its people in this really unusual way. Arthur Tress seems to have a special fascination with a few key subjects – old ladies, bikers, and men waiting aimlessly on the street – but his manner of presentation is so different than other shots of this nature – almost trying to avoid authenticity, as a way of making the landscape seem more abstract. Book is 108 pages, hardcover, with large black and white photo images. Book
