Columbia NightsIn All Things ... CD
Record Breakin, 2016. New Copy ... $9.99
We waited years for the full length debut of Columbia Nights, and not only was it worth the wait, it's a stunner – a beautiful batch of timeless spacey soul! Essentially the multi-instrumentalist trio of John E Daise, Jason "Brotherspanky" Edwards and Hayling Price, they have really expansive sound – built from bass, synths, keys, percussion that lifts it to cosmic heights – in a perfect mix of atmospheric instrumentals and vocal-led tracks. The sound carries influences from soaring 70s soul jazz, to post millennium electronic soul – which mingle seamlessly, and carry a real depth of genuine soul, however spacey the composition! The guest vocalists are top notch, including Diggs Duke, Aaron "AB" Abernathy, Vaughan Octavia and others, and titles include "Sphere", "Cerulean", "In All Things", "Circle", "Now" with Diggs Duke, "The Rhythm" with Sarai Abdul-Malik, "Coming Home" with Aaron "AB" Abernathy, "Neverend/All For You" feat Siara Shawn, "Ever Between" with B Jamelle and "Glide" with Vaughan Octavia.

Art Blakey & The Jazz MessengersJazz Messengers (Columbia) ... LP
Columbia, Late 50s. Good+ ... $24.99
A killer early album by Art Blakey and his first incarnation of The Messengers – recorded before Horace Silver left the group, and a rare non-Blue Note outing done for Columbia Records! The ensemble here features Donald Byrd on trumpet, Hank Mobley on tenor, and Doug Watkins on bass – alongside Silver's piano and Blakey's thundering work on drums – and the album is virtually a blueprint for the sound of hardbop in years to come – focused and intense, but still with plenty of room for individual solo expression! Tracks include a classic reading of "Nica's Dream", plus Horace Silver's great "Ecaroh", and Mobley's own "Infra-Rae" and "Hank's Symphony". LP, Vinyl record album

Miles DavisMiles Smiles (Columbia Jazz Masters pressing) ... CD
Columbia, 1966. Used ... $2.99
Miles Smiles, but his grin is a wry one – given the angular energy of the set! The album's a landmark effort from the mid 60s quintet that includes Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, and Tony Williams – all of whom work without fail to capture Davis' newly emerging approach to jazz – a style that's touched with some of the light lyricism of the late 50s, but which has much sharper edges overall – and really approaches some of the best "new thing" modes that were going down at labels like Blue Note or Impulse! Many tunes have a subtly spare quality, but nonetheless work with a tremendous amount of power – and titles include a classic version of "Freedom Jazz Dance", a haunting take on Shorter's "Footprints", and the titles "Orbits", "Circle", "Dolores", and "Gingerbread Boy".

DionKickin Child – 1965 Columbia Recordings ... CD
Columbia/Norton, 1965. New Copy ... About May 12, 2017 (delayed)
A pretty amazing little record from Dion DiMucci – especially if you only know his earliest rock and roll hits! Dion was always a cat who was hipper than most of his mainstream contemporaries – as evidence by the surprisingly deep turn he'd take at the end of the 60s – but during his early years with Columbia, he was often improperly assigned to songs and sessions – and never really got to show off the more interesting ideas he had in mind for his music. Enter producer Tom Wilson, who was working with Bob Dylan during the early electric years – and who, on most of these tracks, allowed Dion himself to move in a folk rock direction – mostly on his own compositions, which re really incredible – and have a style that could easily sit next to the mid 60s classics on Columbia by The Byrds or Dylan, even though the label never thought much of the recordings at the time. Instead, some of these tracks were issued as singles, or got much later release – and some never saw the light of day at all – and are finally brought together here in a decades-overdue complete album of this great musical moment. If you dig the deeper strands of the transforming folk generation, you'll find plenty to love here – as a younger, clean-cut artist grows his hair, and really finds himself on titles that include "My Love", "Tomorrow Won't Bring The Rain", "Wake Up Baby", "Kickin Child", "Two Ton Feather", "Knowing I Won't Go Back There", "You Move Me Babe", "So Much Younger", and "Time In My Heart For You". Also includes versions of the Dylan tracks "Farewell", "It's All Over Now Baby Blue", and "Baby I'm In The Mood For You". CD

A nice little 50s album that compiles Gene's work from the early 40s – his groundbreaking early swing sides, some featuring singer Anita O'Day, others with the great Roy Eldridge on trumpet! Tunes are tight, lively, and feature some killer drum work (natch!) – and titles include "After You've Gone", "Murder Hey Says", "Tuxedo Junction", "Massachusetts", "Disc Jockey Jump", "Knock Me A Kiss", "Drum Boogie", "Let Me Off Uptown", and "Slow Down".

Michel LeGrandLeGrand Jazz (Columbia) ... LP
Columbia, 1959. Very Good- ... $6.99
The classic meeting of the great French arranger/pianist with American jazz players like Miles Davis, Ben Webster, Milt Hinton, Donald Byrd, Hank Jones, and others. The tracks are a beautiful strident blend of Legrand's best arranging styles, and they show his keen talent for letting the soloist step forth into the spotlight, while complicated orchestrations swirl all around him. The titles are mostly jazz standards, but they're done in a great way, with lots of punch, and lots of great work by all the players. Titles include "Round Midnight", "Night In Tunisia", "Nuages", "In A Mist", and "Django". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original 6 eye pressing with deep groove. Cover has moderate wear, stains, a split bottom seam & cut corner.)

A great collection of Ramsey's work for Columbia – featuring some of his best sweet-grooving electric keyboard hits in one package! The work from this time is totally great – bridging the worlds of jazz and jazzy soul with production from the likes of Maurice White, Charles Stepney, and Bert De Coteaux – and a sound that easily blended Ramsey's soulful piano work with some spacious larger backings. Includes the massive "Sun Goddess", recorded with Earth Wind & Fire – plus "All The Way Live", "Skippin", "Caring For You", "Spring High", "Brazilica", "Love Notes", "Hot Dawgit", and "Funky Serenity".

✨✧ VariousWhistle Bait – 25 Rockabilly Rave Ups ... CD
Columbia/Sony, Late 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Massive sounds from Columbia Records – a smoking set of rockabilly numbers that the legendary label cut during a time when it was making most of its money selling mainstream pop, classical music, and Broadway showtunes albums! Yet beneath all that big-cash production, Columbia found the time to get some amazing records cut in the studio – searing tracks that still bristle with plenty of power and raw energy all these many years later – and which easily match the fire and frenzy of singles you'd hear from some of the more obscure indies that are always prized by collectors of early rock singles! Some artists are Columbia country singers, stepping out for much more gritty action on cuts like these – others are more obscure rock acts that hit the label's roster far from the clean pop of Mitch Miller – and the CD features 25 gems that include "Whistle Bait" by Larry Collins, "Dig Boy Dig" by Freddie Hart, "Big Fool" by Ronnie Self, "I Got A Hole In My Pocket" by Little Jimmy Dickens, "Romp Stompin Boogie" by Jaycee Hill, "Good Rockin Baby" by Sid King & The Five Strings, "Mean Mama Blues" by Marty Robbins, "I'm Comin Home" by Johnny Horton, "Ah Poor Little Baby" by Billy Crash Craddock, "Hoy Hoy" by Collins Kids, "Everybody's Rockin" by Werly Fairburn, "Rawhide" by Link Wray, "You're Humbuggin Me" by Lefty Frizzell, and "Ugly & Slouchy" by Maddox Brothers.

✨✧ Carl PerkinsWhole Lotta Shakin/King Of Rock/Greatest Hits/On Top ... CD
Columbia/BGO (UK), 1959/Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
You might know Carl Perkins mostly as an artist who recorded for Sun Records during the label's glory days of the 50s – but the singer also moved onto Columbia Records, where he cut some stunningly great material that's collected in this set! The package begins with the album Whole Lotta Shakin – a set that takes off from the Sun Records style of Perkins, but also maybe brings in a few country touches, and some of that rawer Columbia rockabilly style that real aficionados know the label did so well. The following three records are all from the end of the 60s – and really show a great new side of the maturing singer – as he hits the kind of post-roots vibe that other aging rockabilly singers were moving towards at the time – like Gene Vincent or Jerry Lee Lewis, who arguably cut some of their most interesting material during the time. Like the latter, Perkins maybe brings in more country inflection to his sound – but also prefaces a whole generation of roots rockers who were emerging – and there's loads of interesting moments in these later recordings, including a tune co-written with Bob Dylan. 2CD set features 49 tracks in all – and titles include "Champaign Illinois", "Levi Jacket", "Loveville", "Sister Twister", "Too Much For A Man To Understand", "Pointed To Shoes", "Just For You", "Mean Woman Blues", "Riverboat Annie", "Lion In The Jungle", "Superfool", "Soul Beat", and "Power Of My Soul".

AerosmithAerosmith ... LP
Columbia, 1973. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
The swaggering, hard grooving and hard rocking debut of Aerosmith! While "Dream On" gets as much or more rock radio play than any song should ever need, it's actually pretty easy to overlook just how good the rest of the record is. They may borrow the bluesy swagger of the Stones and heavy riffing of Led Zeppelin, but it's ultimately a heavy, but accessible rock sound that's distinctively all their own. Includes "Dream On", "Make It", "Somebody", "Walkin The Dog", "Write Me", and "Mama Kin". LP, Vinyl record album
(Later pressing with the larger group photo cover.)

Mose AllisonTransfiguration Of Hiram Brown ... LP
Columbia, Early 60s. Very Good ... $11.99
One of Mose's most sophisticated album, and one that has him going way past his usual "folksy jazzy" style, into a realm that touches on Monk-like modernism. The whole first side is Allison's extended "Hiram Brown" suite, which mixes vocal and instrumental passages in an extremely haunting way. The flipside features shorter versions of standards – some vocal, some instrumental – but all with more of a moderist sound than his earlier Prestige recordings. Nice stuff, and one that you don't see that often. LP, Vinyl record album
(6 eye pressing. Cover has light wear.)

Mose AllisonV-8 Ford Blues (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia (UK), 1966. New Copy ... $8.99
Classic work from one of the hippest jazz singers of all time – and a hell of a pianist too! Mose Allison began his recording career laying down piano on jazz sessions for Stan Getz and a few others – but here, he emerges as a fully-formed talent of his own – steeped in modes from the New Orleans scene, but also able to spin out his own uniquely hip approach – at a level that went onto have a huge influence on later generations of singers – from Dr John to Georgie Fame to Paul Weller – as well as the UK mod scene of the 60s! This album's one of a few that Allison cut for Epic Records, which are among some of our favorites – and titles include "Baby Please Don't Talk About Me When I'm Gone", "Back On The Corner", "Mad With You", "Life Is Suicide", "I Love The Life I Live", and "Ask Me Nice". CD features three bonus tracks – "So Rare", "The Hills", and "High Jinks". CD

Leda Annest/Phil MoorePortrait Of Leda ... LP
Columbia, Late 50s. New Copy (reissue)... $6.99
A wonderfully moody session from the late 50s – one that features the eerie vocals of Leda Annest over the orchestrations of Phil Moore! Leda's got a haunting voice that's somewhere in the range of Yma Sumac, but a bit less dramatic – more kind of a wordless instrument, used amidst the orchestrations in broad washes of color and tone. Moore scored the entire piece for Leda's voice – an extended 3 part suite that runs through series of dark, jazz, and playful moods – all featuring some incredible vocals by Leda!

AppaloosaAppaloosa ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... $15.99
A beautiful musical discovery that we'd somehow never managed to hear all these years – the debut of (and possibly only album by) Appaloosa, a group who mix together gentle folk and a bit of strings – in a mode that's strongly resonant with some of Tim Hardin or Tim Buckley's best work of the late 60s! As you can guess from the cover image, the group is pretty young – but they work with a timeless quality beyond their years, a mode that mixes guitar, violin, and cello together as the core instrumentation for the tunes – topped by wonderful vocals from singer Robin Batteau, who has one of those "shoulda been huge" voices that really grab you right away. Al Kooper produced and contributed some instrumentation – but in a really subtle way that respects the band's sound strongly – and titles include "Pascal's Paradox", "Now That I Want You", "Georgia Street", "Rosalie", "Rivers Run To The Sea", "Glossolalia", and "Feathers".

Damn! This is an amazing rare album from Roy Ayers, and one that, we believe, was only ever issued in Japan! The whole session is made up of 4 tracks, and they were recorded during the time when Roy was playing with Herbie Mann, and recording on Atlantic. This session was cut Direct-To-Disc, and the record plays at 45 rpm for extra high fidelity! The quartet includes Sonny Sharrock on guitar, and Miroslav Vitous on bass. Cuts include "Comin' Home Baby", "Man & A Woman", and "Scarborough Fair". LP, Vinyl record album

Roy AyersIn The Dark/You Might Be Surprised ... CD
Columbia (UK), 1984/1985. Used ... $11.99
After a very successful run at Polydor during the 70s, Roy cut these two albums for Columbia, with a groove that's slightly slicker than his earlier funk work. Of course, slickness was never a problem for Roy – as he seemed to do his best work when his vibes and sweet vocals were given a proper platform to operate on – but there's also some production elements here that give the work a bit more of an 80s groove, which sometimes works, and sometimes doesn't. Still, you've got 2 LPs worth of material to choose from, and there's more than enough tracks to make the set worthwhile. Titles include "Compadre", "In The Dark", "Sexy, Sexy, Sexy", "Virgo", "You Might Be Surprised", "Night Flyte", "Slip n Slide", "Can I See You", and the funky classic "Poo Poo La La", which sounds a lot better than its titled!
