✨✧ Edwin BirdsongGoldmine/Phiss Phizz ... 12-inch
Philadelphia International, 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Clubby work from Edwin Birdsong – with a funky groove that's a lot like Roy Ayers' work from the time! "Goldmine" is presented here in a nice long version – jazzily grooving over warm bassy-beats, picking up speed with some righteous party type lyrics sung by the group on the set! "Phiss Phizz" is a bit weirder – more electronic, with some nice handclapping beats, and a bit of keyboard work making the track "fizz" a lot! 12-inch, Vinyl record
(White label promo.)

✨✧ Edwin BirdsongSuper Natural ... LP
Polydor, 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic record – one of Birdsong's rare early ones, with a messed-up approach to funk that he rarely matched again! The album was cut at the time Birdsong was working with Roy Ayers – but it was produced by Birdsong himself, and he also handled all the keyboards on the set. The group's a stripped-down combo, without the slicker sound of some of his later work – and there's a fuzzy funk approach to most of the best tracks, with lots of guitar and bass. Titles include "If I Ever", "Any Color", "Rising Sign (Funky)", "Flow Through My Heart", "Turn Around Hate (Communicate)", "I Love You Michelle", "Tune From Callicoon", and "Last Exit Before The Toll". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has some ring & edge wear and a stain on one corner.)

Eighties LadiesLadies Of The Eighties (voc, inst) ... 12-inch
Uno Melodic, 1980. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A classic club track by this Roy Ayers side project – presented here on an original Uno Melodic 12" single! Roy wrote the track with Edwin Birdsong, and it's got a lot of nice popping and quirky funk bits, similar to Edwin's "Rapper Dapper Snapper", of the same vintage. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(White label promo. Label has a date stamp.)

✨✧ Roy AyersTear To A Smile ... LP
Polydor, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the best early soul albums by Roy Ayers! Roy's working here with Dee Dee Bridgewater, Edwin Birdsong, William Allen, Harry Whitaker, and other hip players – a perfect crew to forge Roy's unique blend of jazz and soul. This is perhaps the first record to really have Roy stretching out in this mode – moving more fully away from funky jazz, into a ream of vocal tracks that would make him one of the most unique artists of the 70s. This mid 70s period of Roy's career was remarkably fertile, creatively as well as for sheer productivity – and Tears To A Smile is one of them that shows some the most artistic growth, and also a deeper sense of soul! Features righteous cuts like "2000 Black", "Ebony Blaze", "Time & Space", and "A Tear To A Smile" – plus the mellow "Magic Lady", and a great remake of Earth Wind & Fire's "That's The Way Of The World". LP, Vinyl record album
(NOTE – Viny is in Fair condition. Cover has some wear.)

✨✧ Herbie MannMuscle Shoals Nitty Gritty ... LP
Embryo, 1970. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Herbie Man gets nitty and gritty at the Muscle Shoals Studios – bringing his funky flute to the southern powerhouse of sound, and hitting some of his most soulful grooves of the time! The approach here is really great – definitely cast in the southern soul mode that was associated with Muscle Shoals, but also done with the looseness of a jazz record – so that the sound's a fair bit different than similar projects coming out of the scene at the time. Most tracks are long and flowing – with lots of sweet electric elements that include vibes from Roy Ayers, guitar from Eddie Hinton, and keyboards from Barry Beckett. Wayne Jackson and Andrew Love slide in on horns – but Herbie's flute is still the main solo element, and it gets plenty of space to stretch out with some great trippy grooves! Titles include Edwin Birdsong's "Can You Dig It?", plus Sonny Sharrock's "Blind Willy", and Herbie's own "Panama Red's Panama Hat" and "Claudia Pie". LP, Vinyl record album
(In the original die-cut cover, with some wear & a cutout notch.)
