✨✧ DJ ShadowEndtroducing ... LP
Mo Wax/FFRR, 1996. Used 2LP ... Out Of Stock
It seems like when this came out, critics, promoters, and even DJs liked to drop the term "Trip Hop" whenever possible, and this album was held up as the watershed mark. A few years down the line and it still holds up, but as an instrumental hip hop LP, as much as a rock album (Shadow's gone on to show his true colors with subsequent efforts) or anything else. Cinematic and epic in scope, this LP as much as anything else helped resurrect the career of David Axelrod, though some of us were hip to him all along, but Josh Davis is clearly a fellow traveller in the coloristic approach he uses, that never forgets the funk. Includes "Building Steam With A Grain Of Salt", "The Number Song", "Changeling", "What Does Your Soul Look Like (pts 1 & 4)" and "Midnight In A Perfect World". LP, Vinyl record album
(Later pressing on Mo Wax/A&M, including the printed inner sleeves.)

Earl KlughNightsongs ... LP
Capitol, 1984. Near Mint- ... $1.99
Earl Klugh's guitar gets plenty of rich colors to work with here – some deeper backdrops from arrangers Don Sebesky and Dave Matthews – each of whom bring a different mood to the set! Sebesky's got those lush, full charts that we love so much from his classic orchestral charts of the 60s and 70s – while Matthews is a bit tighter and more swinging, but still farther from his funky work of the 70s than you might expect. Klugh's guitar hits loads of those classic colorful tones throughout – and titles include "Theme From The Pawnbroker", "The Look Of Love", "Nature Boy", "A Certain Smile", "The Shadow Of Your Smile", and "Stay Gold".

Bryan MacLeanIfyoubelievein (white vinyl pressing) ... LP
Sundazed, Late 60s. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $23.99 24.99
You've probably heard the story, or strains of it anyway. Love's secondary songwriter Bryan MacLean, who penned "Alone Again Or" for one, left the group under conflicted circumstances shortly after their masterpiece Forever Changes was released. The consensus seems to be that Bryan, who was a major factor in the baroque production that graced Forever Changes, was uncomfortable with the Hendrix-ian route Arthur Lee wanted to take. These solo tracks that MacLean recorded during those years, while still in Love and shortly thereafter, seem to strengthen that notion. The tunes on Ifyoubelivein are mostly the bare bones for what may have been a post-Forever Changes orch-psych masterpiece, but went unreleased in any form until the late 90s, as MacLean pretty much dropped out of the biz in the late 60s and found Jesus. The recordings have a folksy feel to them, and a stark, haunting quality, with the quivering melodicism and psychedelic imagery MacLean brought to Love. Essential for even novice Love fans, and a testament to Bryan MacLean's role in one of the greatest rock groups ever, a role somewhat unfairly overshadowed by Arthur Lee. Titles include "Barber John", "Fresh Hope", "Kathleen", "Alone Again Or", "Friday's Party", "If You Believe In", and "Old Man". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jack McDuffTobacco Road ... LP
Atlantic, 1967. Very Good- Gatefold ... $9.99
A monster record by Brother Jack McDuff, and one of his best-ever – in our humble opinion! At first glance, the album appears to be just a bunch of jazz covers of standards and pop tracks – like "Tobacco Road", "Shadow Of Your Smile", "This Bitter Earth", and "Teardrops From My Eyes" – but Jack's got some help from JJ Jackson on the arrangements, and the outwardly simple tracks are twisted into these amazing grooves that have Jack wailing away in strange choppy funky ways on the organ! The whole album must be heard to be believed, and the version of "Shadow Of Your Smile", which starts with a nice break, is worth the price of the album alone! Plus, the whole thing's packaged in a very groovy cover, too. LP, Vinyl record album
(Green & blue label pressing. Cover has light wear.)

Toots ThielemansCollage ... CD
Sony (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $9.99
One of the coolest 70s albums from the great Toots Thielemans – and one of the few that really captures the same sort of soulful magic that Toots hit when working with Quincy Jones! The album's a Dutch production, done with some fantastic arrangements from Rogier Van Otterloo – who creates this gentle groove on some tracks, and lush backdrops on others – shifting Toots through those brilliant modes of color and tone he can do unlike anyone else – as he solos on jazz harmonica, whistles, plays guitar, or even combines some of both! There's great keyboards in the mix on most tracks, too – resonating really nicely with the harmonica – and titles include "Killer Joe", "That Misty Red Beast", "Jane's Theme", "The Shadow Of Your Smile", "Quiet Evenings", "I Won't Last A Day Without You", "The Sensualist", and a remake of "Bluesette".

✨✧ Wallace RoneyPrototype ... CD
High Note, 2004. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A nicely electrified set from trumpeter Wallace Roney – working here in a style that has plenty of moody backdrops on Fender Rhodes, plus some really snapping percussion from drummer Eric Allen! There's a sound here that's clearly inspired by 70s Miles, but which also moves through a range of more recent expression, and which often reminds us of work from French trumpeter Erik Truffaz on his first few Blue Note albums. Some of the tracks are more acoustic and straightforward, in the manner of Roney's earlier albums – and players include Adam Holzman on Fender Rhodes, Geri Allen on acoustic keys, Antoine Roney on tenor and soprano saxes, and Matt Garrison on bass. Guest performers include Don Byron on bass clarinet, Clifton Anderson on trombone, and DJ Logic on turntables – and titles include "Cyberspace", "Shadow Dance", "Prototype", "Then & Now", "Secret Identity", and "Three Views Of The Blues".

VariousPlay The Game – The XL & Sounds Of Memphis Story Vol 2 ... CD
Sounds Of Memphis/Kent (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
Rare gems from the Memphis scene of the late 60s & early 70s – Kent UK's second volume in the XL & Sounds Of Memphis Story series – tunes that are diverse, trailblazing, and definitely deserving of some late love! The purpose of the series is to celebrate many the fantastic soul singles released by Sounds Of Memphis and XL in the huge shadow cast by the Stax family of labels – and it's success on that front and more. This second volume is just as great as the first in its display of the far-reaching sounds of Memphis soul at the time – from rollicking, rock & soul groovers with chugging guitar and gritty vocals, to mellowed out, melancholy soul with tight, yet rich vocal and instrumental arrangements – but it one-ups the first with its inclusion of never before released tunes, several of which should be classics! Great stuff from George Jackson,The Ovations, The Minits, Ann Hodge and many more! Titles include "All In My Mind" by George Jackson, "Play The Game" by Vision, "Got To Get Home" by Art Jerry Miller, "Gotta Move On (To My Destiny)" by The Ovations, "Today, Tomorrow And You" by Everyday People, "So Much Love To This" by The Sweeteens, "Teardrops" by William Bollinger, "I'll Love Only You" by Willie Cobbs and more. 22 tracks in all. CD
