Eddie FisherHot Lunch ... LP
Stang, 1977. Near Mint- ... $24.99
A great little album by guitarist Eddie Fisher – the same Eddie Fisher who cut two different albums for Cadet at the end of the 60s, but stepping out here in a slightly different mode! This one's got Eddie in a smooth funky soul style – mixing flanged-out guitar and vocals in a trippy dope kind of way that's somewhere in the neighborhood of Shuggie Otis and Johnny Guitar Watson's best 70s work – nicely trippy, but still pretty tight too, and almost with a spacey, cosmic vibe at points! There's definitely an Inspiration Information sort of sound going on with the best numbers – which have a slow, compressed approach to funk – and great titles include "Give Me, Lend Me, Loan Me", "Thump and Bump", "Cosmic Blues", and "It's That Music". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has some light wear.)

Eddie FisherThird Cup ... LP
Cadet, 1969. Very Good ... $13.99
An amazing album by the great guitarist Eddie Fisher – and completely unlike his later funk records! Eddie plays stripped down jazz with a small combo that includes organ by Robert Selby, bass by Paul Jackson, and some rhythm guitar by Phil Westmoreland – and the twin-guitar approach creates this super-dope style that's light years ahead of its time, with a sophistication that points the way to later mid 70s work on labels like CTI and Kudu! Eddie's guitar work is an incredible exercise in spareness and soulfulness – best heard on the fantastic "Third Cup", a long drawn-out jazz stepper that's got to be heard to be believed. The cut's been a favorite on the Chicago jazz stepper's scene for years – and it alone is worth the price of the album. However, the record features some other wonderful stuff – like a sublime version of "Shadow Of Your Smile" that runs for a bubbling 12 minutes – plus the originals "Shut Up", "Scorched Earth", and "Two By Two". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing.)

Jackie Edwards & SoulmakersTraveling Slow/Evie ... 7-inch
Daran, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $11.99
Two really tripped-out instrumental tunes, with a super-dope guitar finish that reminds us of the best early work by Eddie Fisher! "Traveling Slow" has a smooth stepping sound – very slow, with the guitar just bubbling slightly above some organ. "Evie" has a bit more of a groove, with chromatic guitar dancing slowly around in a post-Wes mode that recalls the best work of Cal Green. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Eddy SenayHot Thang ... LP
Sussex, 1972. Good+ ... $11.99
A heck of a great little guitar funk album – one of two rare sides cut by the amazing Eddie Senay! The record's all-instrumental – and Eddie's fuzzed-out guitar takes center stage over tripped-out arrangements that recall the best psychedelic funk of the early 70s – bubbling along with just enough drums, bass, and keyboards to make for a chunky bottom groove – while Senay wails over the top on guitar! The record reminds us of similar guitar funk albums from the time – including the work of Dennis Coffey, Eddie Fisher, or Donald Austin – but the groove's even more laidback and trippy, with a few nice breakway moments from the rhythm section. Tracks include "Jubo", "Hot Thang", "Message of Love", and great covers of "Ain't No Sunshine" and Donny Hathaway's "Zambezi". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Donald AustinCrazy Legs ... LP
Westbound (UK), 1973. Used (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A sweet little album of funky instrumental guitar! The record's one of the most obscure on the Westbound label – and it features guitar player Donald Austin going to town on 13 short little cuts with a tripped-out funky groove – sometimes fuzzy, usually funky, and always with that heavier kind of sound you'd expect from Westbound in the early 70s! Austin's guitar is very much in the mode of Eddie Fisher, Eddie Senay, or other kicked-back jazz funk players from his generation – an approach that's probably got a bit of Hendrix somewhere back in the mix, but which is more focused on the tighter side of the funk and soul instrumental spectrum! The album's like finding a stash of rare funky 45s – loads of great short tracks with titles that include "Sex Plot", "Crazy Legs", "You Want It, You Got It", "Side Saddle", "Nanzee", "Pea Shooter", "Do Me Right", and "Shake Your Head". LP, Vinyl record album
(90s reissue – out of print for years!)

✨✧ Cal GreenTrippin' With Cal Green ... CD
Mutt & Jeff/P-Vine (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The back cover of this one says "This Album Should Be Titled MONSTER" – and for once, the back cover is right! The album's the only one we've ever seen by the super-dope LA guitarist Cal Green – a wonderful talent with a hard-edge approach to the strings, one that's a bit like that of George Freeman, but a bit more laidback and spaced out. You might know Green from his work on albums by organist Charles Kynard – and Kynard joins green here in a sweet little quartet session with some very funky moments. The album's got a killer original called "Trippin" which has some super-wonderful work on guitar – and it's also got some surprisingly great covers of "Days Of Wine & Roses" and "My Cherie Amour", taken with the chromatic wandering style of Eddie Fisher. Other highlights are the originals "Sieda", and "Mellow In Blue", plus the slightly offbeat "Johnny's Gone To Vietnam". A monster – indeed! CD
