✨✧ Chi-LitesGreatest Hits (Epic pressing) ... LP
Brunswick/Epic, Late 60s/Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Issued in 1983, but a good look back at the classic Brunswick years of this massive soul group from Chicago! The Chi-Lites are one of the best harmony acts ever to come out of the Windy City – and while at the Brunswick label during the late 60s and early 70s, leader Eugene Record forged a sound that became a virtual blueprint for the Chicago group sound of the next decade to come. The harmonies are impeccable on the record – as you probably know if you've already heard hits like "Have You Seen Her", "(For God's Sake) Give More Power To The People", "Lonely Man", "Oh Girl", "The Coldest Days Of My Life", "A Letter To Myself", and "Homely Girl". LP, Vinyl record album

Lou CourtneyWhat Do You Want Me To Do/Beware (Epic pressing) ... 7-inch
Epic, 1973. Very Good+ ... $7.99
2 nice ones from Lou's stay at Epic! Both tracks feature production and arrangements by Jerry Ragovoy – and "What Do You Want" is a nice mellow midtempo soul number, with the kind of spoken intro that has us hooked at "hello"! 7-inch, Vinyl record

DAP x The NomadsEpic/To My People ... 7-inch
Stay The Course, 2014. New Copy (pic cover)... $6.99
Strong independent hip hop from heretofore unknown Brooklyn emcee DAP – with live instrumentation by The Nomads – the first single on the upstart Stay The Course label, and here's hoping they do just that! This is solid stuff – rooted in raw 90s east coast boom bap, inspiration-wise – but it's not so much a throwback, as it is a fresh take on a timelessly inventive style. The Nomads provide a spare jazz funk backdrop of drums, bass, keys and sax that suits it perfectly. "Epic" and "To My People" are both top notch tracks. A solid start! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Comes in a great screenprint sleeve, too!)

Mother's FinestMother's Finest (Epic)/Another Mother Further/Mother Factor/Mother's Finest Live ... CD
Epic/Raven, Mid/Late 70s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $22.99 24.98
Four full albums by the legendary Mother's Finest – collected here in one 2CD set! First up is the self-titled Mother's Finest – the Epic debut from one of the hardest, heaviest soul groups of the 70s – so much so that their music often has a fair bit of rockish touches too – especially in the guitars, which are nice and fuzzy! Lead singer Joyce Kennedy is a killer throughout – almost rivaling Nona Hendryx for unbridled energy and raw power – and the rest of the group provide lots of vocal support too – as well as some plenty heavy drums, bass, and guitar! Things really cook on titles that include "Rain", "Fire", "Fly With Me", "Dontcha Wanna Love Me", and ironically-titled "Niggizz Can't Sang Rock & Roll". Mother's Finest Live is a stunner of a live record from Mother's Finest – one that almost comes across with all the majesty and power of the more famous arena rock albums of the time, but which also has plenty of the group's funky touches intact as well! As before, the music here is a wicked take on fuzzy guitar-based rock – one that's often more funk and soul overall, but easily able to cross into both camps and leave plenty of fans behind! If the audience enthusiasm is to be believed, these guys are tremendous on stage – and titles include "Mickey's Monkey", "Fire", "Somebody To Love", "Magic Carpet Ride", "Watch My Stylin", and "Love Changes". Another Mother Further is filled with heavy guitars, funky bottoms, and lots of super-tight musicianship – a killer set from Mother's Finest, and one that has the group effortlessly blending rock impulses with lots of funk and soul! The group make their soul inclinations known with a heavy cover of the Miracles "Mickey's Monkey" right at the start – and blend together lots of similar currents with a solid sound that's unapologetically into searing guitar solos as much as it is some funkier bottoms. Titles include "Mickey's Monkey", "Baby Love", "Truth'll Set You Free", "Hard Rock Lover", and "Dis Go Dis Way Dis Go Dat Way". Mother Factor is one of the funkiest sets ever from Mother's Finest, and maybe our favorite album from the group's late 70s run on Epic Records! Production is by Skip Scarborough, who brings up some of the group's more soulful currents, but without losing their rocking impulses from before – and singer Joyce Kennedy's never sounded better in the setting! Basslines seem to take more prominence than before – and there's less of the rockish guitar solos – and a few tracks even have those cool, compressed midtempo grooves that Skip could do so well. Titles include "Mr Goodbar", "Tell Me", "Love Changes", "Watch My Stylin", "Can't Fight The Feeling", and "Give It Up". CD

Kamasi WashingtonEpic (3CD set) ... CD
Brainfeeder, 2015. New Copy 3 CDs ... $20.99 25.98
A modern day spiritual jazz treasure – completely wonderful all the way through, and a set you might well file proudly next to your classics from John Coltrane and Pharoah Sanders! The record's as epic as it promises in the title – a three volume journey in jazz, headed by tenorist Kamai Washington, who emerges here as a tremendous leader, a hell of a writer, and a rich jazz talent in every sense of the word – carefully steering a group of musicians through work that's searing, searching, and driven with a very cosmic vibe! Tunes are often modal, and never step too far outside, but always push the boundaries – and the instrumentation is a shifting mix of keyboards, piano, trombone, trumpet, bass, drums, and percussion – plus some vocal performances from Dwight Trible and Patrice Quinn. You might know Kamasi from his work with Flying Lotus and Thundercat – the latter of whom plays bass on this set – but the album's very much his own, and very much jazz all the way through. The kind of record we're mighty proud to be offering – with tracks that include "Askim", "The Next Step", "Rhythm Changes", "Miss Understanding", "Leroy & Lanisha", "Re Run", "Seven Prayers", "Malcolm's Theme", and "The Message".

✨✧ Epic SoundtracksRise Above ... LP
Bar None/Mapache, 1994. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of those records that came out of left field when it was released – yet managed to take a very tiny slice of the underground by storm! Epic Soundtracks is no stranger to indie scenes – having been an important member of Swell Maps during the late 70s UK punk years, and working with Crime & The City Solution on some great records during the 80s – but this solo debut is something else entirely – a set that draws on an older, more personal singer/songwriter tradition, and which shows a side of Soundtracks that's surprisingly heartfelt, maybe even optimistic – although the whole thing's still got a darkness that reminds us of the solo work by his brother, Nikki Sudden – but with piano as the dominant instrument, not guitar. Titles include "Everybody Else Is Wrong", "I Feel Good", "Big Apple Graveyard", "I Don't Know", "Meet Me On The Beach", and "She Sleeps Alone". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Epic SoundtracksSleeping Star ... LP
Mapache, 1994. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A really beautiful album from Epic Soundtracks – and one of those records that really helped define the deeply personal sound of his solo work! Epic here is even more stripped-down and open than in his work with Swell Maps and Crime & The City Solution – singing in this dark, moody style on tunes that are mostly spare, and recorded with this "middle of the night" vibe that's completely mesmerizing! Soundtracks was listening to a lot of Laura Nyro at the time – and you can hear it in the way that he puts the tunes across – yet his approach is that dark side of Nyro that never made it to record, with a mode that's like one of the underground early 70s singer/songwriters, but after they'd survived the punk years and beyond. Titles include "Tonight's The Night", "Waiting For The Train", "There's Been A Change", "Don't Go To School", "Hear The Whistle Blow", and "Tired Eyes". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bobby VintonVery Merry Christmas – The Complete Epic Christmas Collection ... CD
Epic/Real Gone, 1964. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Pure pop from the Polish prince – a classic Christmas set issued during the height of Bobby Vinton's 60s years on Epic Records! The album's got this quality that makes similar use of Vinton's vocals as some of the Johnny Mathis magic on similar Christmas records – a style that still echoes the clarity and punch of his pop recordings, but also brings in a bit of majesty befitting the season – cast in fuller arrangements from Stan Applebaum, Ray Ellis, and Hugo Winterhalter! The song selection is surprisingly nice – with some unusual songs that make the album a real standout – including a great version of Burt Bacharach's "The Bell That Couldn't Jingle", plus "Dearest Santa", "The Greatest Gift", "Peppermint Stick Parade", "Three Wise Men Wise Men Three", "The Christmas Tree", "Christmas Angel", and "Christmas Chopsticks". CD features the full Very Merry Christmas album – plus bonus tracks "My Christmas Prayer", "Silver Bells", "Winter Love", "O Holy Night", "Kissin Christmas", and "Christmas Eve In My Home Town". CD

Mose AllisonMose Allison Takes To The Hills ... LP
Epic, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $24.99
Incredible stuff – and Mose Allison at his finest! The record's got a rough and hard-grooving quality that surpasses even Allison's other albums for Prestige and Columbia from the time – an almost bluesy approach that comes out in the style of the recording – which features more rougher edges and room noise, and also a fair bit of Mose's own mumbling and humming along with his piano! Of course, it's Mose's actual vocals that really make the set work – but there's also a nice equal focus on his piano work too, plus some great support backing that includes Addison Farmer and Henry Grimes on bass, and Paul Motian and Osie Johnson on drums. Titles include "Baby Please Don't Go", "Back On The Corner", "Life Is Suicide", "Mad With You", "I Ain't God Nobody", and "I Love The Life I Live". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Dave Bailey2 Feet In The Gutter ... CD
Epic (Japan), 1961. New Copy ... $13.99
Hardbop albums don't get any better than this – and although drummer Dave Bailey only recorded for a brief stretch as a leader, this session's one that shows that he was a heck of a force to contend with! The record's got an intensity that easily rivals the best by Art Blakey over at Blue Note during the early 60s – but Dave's also got a slightly looser groove too – a bit more sense of humanity, and one that allows for really organic interplay between the players. There's a slight soul jazz undercurrent – especially in the piano lines of Billy Gardner – and other players in the quintet include Bill Hardman on trumpet, Frank Haynes on tenor, and Ben Tucker on bass. The group wails on an early version of Tucker's classic "Comin' Home Baby", plus other great originals like "Coffee Walk", "Lady Iris B", and "Two Feet In the Gutter". A old favorite on the south side of Chicago! CD

Dave Bailey SextetGetting' Into Somethin' ... CD
Epic (Japan), 1960. New Copy ... $13.99
Heavy duty hardbop – one of three amazing Epic Records sessions cut by drummer Dave Bailey! Dave didn't ever cut many sessions as a leader – but when he did, they really cooked hard – with a quality level and sharpness of vision that easily rivals the best on Blue Note or Prestige Records at the time! In fact, this album would have been right at home on either imprint – a smoking session of soulful hardbop, with very long songs that allow plenty of room for solos by players who include Charlie Rouse on tenor, Clark Terry on trumpet, Curtis Fuller on trombone, and Horace Parlan on piano – who are all in the group with Dave, alongside bassist Peck Morrison. There's a nicely unbridled feel to the whole set – a real "something extra" that's always made the album a treasure – and titles include the side-long 17 minute "Blues For JP", plus "Slop Jah", "Little Old Mongoose", and "Evad Smurd".

Count Basie with Lester YoungLester Leaps In ... LP
Epic, Late 30s/1955. Very Good+ ... $14.99
A beautiful mid 50s issue of some of the classic material that Lester Young recorded with Count Basie during the late 30s – all nicely packaged with a great cover, and annotated in a way that offers a lot more information than the original release of the material on 78rpm discs! These are the records that made Lester a giant – and for good reason, as the Basie setting seems to propel Young's horn with even more force than it might have on its own – allowing a great setting for the fresh voice that would go onto transform generations of tenor players to come! The set features 12 tracks in all – and titles include "Moten Swing", "Taxi War Dance", "Dickie's Dream", "Jump For Me", "Song Of The Islands", and "Lester Leaps In". LP, Vinyl record album

Epic, 1956. Very Good- ... $14.99
A great little album from Ruby Braff – simply blown in a small combo setting, with a strong focus on Braff's sparkling tone on the trumpet! The groups vary throughout the course of the set, but all players are pretty darn great – and tunes include guitar from Steve Jordan, vibes by Don Elliott, and even some nice tenor work from Coleman Hawkins. Braff's own playing is a bit free of the overly-sentimental tones that sometimes mar his other records – and he's got a clarity and charm here that makes the record one of his best full length sets ever. Titles include "Stardust", "Indian Summer", "Here's Freddie", "Just One More Chance", "You're Lucky To Me", "Too Marvelous For Words", and "It's Been So Long". LP, Vinyl record album
