Betty DavisColumbia Years – 1968/1969 ... LP
Light In The Attic/Columbia, Late 60s. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $19.99
A soul and funk fan's dream come true – never-heard recordings by the legendary Betty Davis, done for Columbia Records a few years before her debut album! At the time, Betty was hanging with Miles Davis, and turning him onto the sounds of fuzzy funk – and Miles actually produced these recordings, and used instrumentation from key associates like Herbie Hancock on keyboards, Wayne Shorter on reeds, and John McLaughlin on guitar – plus the mighty Larry Young on keyboards! The whole thing's amazing – every bit as great as Betty's work for the Just Sunshine label, but maybe even grittier – and with this unbridled vibe that's totally wonderful – and we're stunned that this is the first we're hearing of this music – but are mighty happy it's finally seen the light of day. A few cuts also feature Davis with The Crusaders and Hugh Masekela – for a groovy Cali soul sort of vibe – and titles include "It's My Life", "Hangin Out", "Politician Man", "Down Home Girl", "I'm Ready Willing & Able", "Born On The Bayou", and "Live Love Learn".

Miles DavisComplete Columbia Album Collection (70 CD & 1 DVD set) ... CD
Columbia/Legacy, Late 40s/1950s/1960s/1970s/1980s. Used ... $499.99
The complete Miles Davis at Columbia in one incredible box set – 52 albums worth of incomparable, evolving genius over 3+ decades on 70 CDs – plus the previously unreleased DVD Live In Europe, 67, a mini hardcover 250 page book with biography, fully annotated discography, rare photos and more! All the Columbia albums are here, including Columbia releases of rare live material such as In Paris Festival International De Jazz, bonus material from past Columbia reissues, and more – with recording dates from late 40s the late 80s. Amazing stuff from the uber iconic Kind Of Blue and Sketches Of Spain, the landmark electric jazz funk of Bitches Brew & Big Fun, dozens of incredible live recordings, the comparably overlooked, still quite wonderful 80s albums, purportedly the first time ever full audio release of the complete audio release of the August 29th, 1970 Isle Of Wight festival performance, and so much more! Each of the 52 albums (including double albums) comes in a mini LP replica jacket, some gatefold, and all modeled after the Japanese style cardboard sleeves. The DVD is approximately 75 minutes, featuring black & white concert footage from November 7 and October 31, 1967 – the group that included Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter and Tony Williams. The book is pretty great, too, full color, with notes on the discography and detailed annotation. CD

DionKickin Child – 1965 Columbia Recordings ... LP
Columbia/Norton, 1965. New Copy Gatefold ... $21.99
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 are 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". LP, Vinyl record album

Hank GarlandMove – The Guitar Artistry Of Hank Garland – The Complete Columbia Records Sessions 1959 to 1960 ... CD
Columbia/Euphoria, 1959/1960. Used 2 CDs ... $9.99
A wonderful set of work by a jazz guitarist you've probably never heard of! Hank Garland was a player who recorded mostly in the Nashville studio scene, but who also had a warmly chromatic approach to jazz, one that was light years ahead of many of his contemporaries on the instrument. Hank's style mixed the complexity of electric guitar on a country session, with the subtle jazzy phrasing of a small group player – in a way that's hard to compare to anyone else! This set features the 2 albums Hank cut for Columbia records – Jazz Winds From A New Direction and Velvet Guitar – plus rare unreleased tracks from the same session, for a total of 31 tracks in all. Tracks include "Ed's Place", "Scarlet Ribbons", "Secret Love", "Autumn Leaves", "Greensleeves", Three Four The Blues", "Move", "Riot Chorus", "Relaxing", "Call D Law", "Rainy Afternoon", "Ed's Place", "It's Love, Of Course", and "Ain't Nothing Wrong With That, Baby".

Jon LucienBelieve In Me – The Essential Selection – Original RCA & Columbia Recordings 1970 to 1976 ... CD
Decision, 1970s. New Copy ... $6.99 7.99
A wonderful compilation of some of Virgin Islands-raised soul jazz great John Lucien's better material – culled from his ever-fresh records for RCA and Columbia throughout the 70s – really incredible stuff that works it's magic every time we hear it, yet has never been particularly easy to find in print over the years, especially in the US! Lucien's island upbringing is a distinctively great part of is charm, with a breezily melodic vibe, often with some lovely string accents – always with a spirtual soul resonance carried by his charismatic voice. This 17 track snapshot of his RCA and Columbia ouvre is very nicely selected – and the titles include ncludes "Dindi", "Find Yourself A Love", "Who Will Buy", "Lady Love", "Luella", "Esperanza", "Listen Love", "World Of Joy", "Creole Lady", "You Are My Love", "Maiden Voyage"., "Rashida", "Who Will Buy?", "Motherland", "Would You Believe me", "Hello Like Before" and "War Song".

MoondogMoondog (Columbia) (with download) (2017 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Columbia, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $20.99
This was the first of Moondog's albums on Columbia – produced in a style that took him a lot more seriously than other albums on labels like Brunswick or Prestige, and handled in a way that slots it nicely between the label's experiments in modern music with artists like Terry Riley or Harry Partch. The tracks still have all the naive charm of Moondog's earlier work, but they're performed by a top-shelf orchestra that includes classical and jazz players, including Ron Carter, Hubert Laws, Buddy Morrow, and Phil Bodner. Moondog himself handles the bass – and tracks include "Mini-sym #1", "Stamping Ground", "Symphonique #6", and "Witch Of Endor". LP, Vinyl record album

Kenny RankinColumbia US Singles 1963 to 1966 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Columbia (Japan), Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $39.99
A stunning early chapter in the career of singer/songwrtiter Kenny Rankin – an artist who'd later break big with a unique mix of jazz and folk, but who already sounds pretty amazing on these early singles recorded for Columbia Records! We'll be honest, we didn't even know about this part of Kenny's career until this set – we first fell in love with his early albums on Mercury in the late 60s – but the set here is completely revelatory, and shows a whole new side of the Rankin genius that should have been huge! Kenny sings a fair bit of original material on the set – and the songs are already very unique – with echoes of jazz, maybe a bit of bossa, some more mainstream phrasing, and definite currents of folk when Rankin plays acoustic guitar. Most tracks were produced by Robert Mersey, some with a slight uptown soul current – and two were produced by Dion, in his hipper, folksier mode – but it's clear right from the start that Kenny's a star that can shine more than brightly enough on its own. Titles include early versions of "In The Name Of Love" and "Haven't We Met" – plus "Don't Go To Strangers", "Come On & Be My Love", "US Mail", "There'll Be No Other Love For Me", "Baby Goodbye", and "Soft Guitar".

Columbia, Late 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $11.99
A lost heavy rock classic from the Dunwich Production team – recorded in Michigan, but with extra orchestral backing in Chicago – for an approach that gives the record a slightly pop quality that tempers the harder rock sound nicely. The songs are actually pretty catchy, in a post-Summer Of Love pop mode – and titles include "Magic Bed", "What's In My Mind's Eye", "Heart Attack", "Strange", "Thoughts & Feelings", and "Ode To Missy Mxyzosptlk".

Columbia, 1954/1955/1956/1957. Used ... $14.99
Great 50s material from Louis Armstrong – 4 vintage albums recorded for Columbia Records, packaged up in a single box, but with cool individual record-style sleeves! The material is Armstrong at his best comeback stretch – and most of these sets recall the classic sound of his early years, without any of the pop inflections of other later recordings. Two records are tributes to older jazz figures – Louis Armstrong Plays WC Handy, and Satch Plays Fats – and one more record, Ambassador Satch, is a key statement of Armstrong's global power in the postwar years, a time when the State Department was using his talents to mend fences and open doors after WWII. The last album is a 2CD set – The Great Chicago Concert 1956 – beautiful vintage material, not discovered until the 70s! 60 tracks on 5CDs. CD

Hoyt AxtonMy Griffin Is Gone ... LP
Columbia, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $14.99
A wonderful album from the eternally underrated Hoyt Axton – whose rich, folksy lead vocals are given some fairly soaring arrangements on tunes that range from topical but not quite protest folk material to some trippier, chemically enhanced narratives! Hoyt's got the kind of easygoing, laconic drawl to keep a rustic vibe in the overall sound, but on these tunes he really stretches out into some some lyrically ambitious numbers that bring Tim Buckley to mind, and he also employs mean growl to some seedier numbers that surprised us even more. He dabbles in these eclectic sounds without ever betraying his Hoyt-ness (look at that, we made up a new word). Titles include "Way Before The Time Of Towns", "Beelzebub's Laughter", "Sunshine Fields Of Love", "Sunrise", "Kingswood Manor" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Philip BaileyChinese Wall ... CD
Columbia, 1984. Used ... $8.99
A big breakthrough for Philip Bailey – and a record that was kind of a second-level explosion for the Earth Wind & Fire sound in the 80s! There's a definite crossover feel to the record – a style that takes Bailey's soulful vocals, and mixes them with lots of catchy hooks – in ways that push the Kalimba aesthetic even more into mainstream modes. Yet the album's still got some solid soul grounding, too – thanks to arrangements by Tom Tom and Arif Mardin – which is a nice contrast to the production by Phil Collins, who also guests on the hit "Easy Lover". Other cuts include "Time Is A Woman", "Go", "Walking On The Chinese Wall", "Photogenic Memory", "I Go Crazy", and "Children Of The Ghetto". CD

Ballin'JackBallin'Jack ... LP
Columbia, 1970. Very Good ... $9.99
Lost funk rock from Ballin'Jack – the rare self-titled set for Columbia that's arguably best remembered for being so massively sampled – but the group that deserves a more widely-credited legacy! The sound is a bit like Mandrill on the best cuts, with the band going hard on the funky drums with some great brassy movements, flute and guitars. Lots of deftly jazzy movements, too – standout flute and guitar moments throughout. Tracks include the famously sampled "Found a Child" and "Never Let 'Em Say" (believe us, you've heard these samples plenty, and it's cool to hear them in their original context. . .great stuff and little wonder they were so strongly utilized by hip hop production heavies), plus "Super Highway", Festival", "Telephone", "Ballin' The Jack", "Street People", "Carnival", and "Hold On".

John Barry/Matt MonroQuiller Memorandum ... LP
Columbia, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A sweet little soundtrack by John Barry – very different than the full-on style he used for James Bond – but equally groovy in its own sort of way! The music was written for a spy thriller starring Alec Guiness, George Segal, and Max Von Sydow – a moody film that's handled here by Barry with a spacey quality that's mighty nice – lots of isolated instruments floating along, sometimes with weird effects that are almost watery – all in a space that's somewhere between Barry's work for The Knack, and that new sense of space that Morricone was bringing into 60s soundtracks. The result is a real treasure – one of Barry's best film scores – and titles include "Autobahn March", "Downtown", "Oktober/Walk From The River", "Quiller Caught/The Fight", "Quiller & The Bomb", and the theme "Wednesday's Child", sung by Matt Monro.

Columbia/Be With (UK), 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
An overlooked gem from the 70s – the one and only album from Batteaux, a group who do a great job of mixing older folksy soul modes with some tighter 70s production! David and Robin Beatteau are the core of the group – and work in this sing-song blend of vocals and acoustic guitar that's not too far from Alzo & Udine – with a similar blend of folk funk and mellow soul elements – but all wrapped up in a sound that's quite unique! The production is impeccable – tight enough to isolate all the best elements at hand – yet subtly wrapping everything up in a sound that's nice and warm, while still sounding very organic. The set includes the wonderful tune "Tell Her She's Lovely" – a mellow groover – plus the tracks "Mirror", "Wake Me In the Morning", "Lady of The Lake", "Katy", "High Tide", and the cut "Dig Up The Love".
