✨✧ Charles MingusMingus Revisited (aka Pre-Bird) ... CD
EmArcy/Polygram (Germany), 1960. Used ... $4.99
An unusual chapter in the label-hopping career of Charles Mingus – a one-off date recorded for Mercury right after Mingus' legendary sessions for Columbia! The format here may well be Mingus' most ambitious to date – as the album features larger groups than before, exploring a range of musical ideas that run from Charles' own highly political expressions of the Civil Rights era to some of his landmark explorations of Duke Ellington! As always, the individual players in the group are given a strong voice in the proceedings – and the record bristles with energy from solos by Ted Curson, Eric Dolphy, Booker Ervin, Jimmy Knepper, Yusef Lateef, and a young Joe Farrell – as well as vocal performances by Lorraine Cousins, who sings on the classic "Weird Nightmare" and the haunting "Eclipse". A tremendous record throughout – filled with life, imagination, and boundless creativity – with titles that include "Mingus Fingus no. 2", "Weird Nightmare", "Eclipse", "Bemoanable Lady", "Half Mast Inhibition", and "Prayer for Passive Resistance".

Ennio MorriconeOnce Upon A Time In America ... CD
Mercury, 1983. Used ... $6.99
Magical mainstream Morricone – a sublime score for Sergio Leone's epic tale of gangland growth in the 20th century! Although penned for a wider audience, most of the best Morricone elements are still at play in this soundtrack – a great sense of space and timing, and some key use of spare, isolated instruments – including the pan flute of George Zamfir, an odd choice given the New York setting of the film, but one that comes off beautifully in the mix. Strings back up most of the tunes, but they're never too sleepy – just slightly sentimental, but in a really good way. Titles include "Childhood Memories", "Once Upon A Time In America", "Cockeye's Song", "Childhood Poverty", "Friends", "Photographic Memories", "Speakeasy", and "Poverty". CD also features some bonus tracks too! CD

✨✧ David OliverDavid Oliver (aka Jamerican Man) ... LP
Mercury, 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of David's smooth soul albums for Mercury, with jazzy production by Wayne Henderson that's in line with the best work he was doing at the time. David's got a strange voice that's got the depth of a baritone, but the sweetness of a tenor. It's a little tough to get used to at first, but the arrangements are sparkling, and match his style very well. Tracks include "Love So Strong", "Ms.", "Friends & Strangers", "Munchies", and "Let's Make Happiness". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousGolden Age Of American Popular Music – More Country Hits ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A much-needed second set in this wonderful series from Ace Records – a sidestream of their Golden Age Of American Popular Music that looks at country hits of the late 50s and early 60s! Yet by "hits", don't imagine that you'll know everything here – as, like other volumes in the series, there's a really nice focus here on songs that made an impact at the time, but which have been somewhat lost to the shifting sands of musical history! There's definitely a few you'll know, but there's plenty more here that played big in those years when country was finally beginning to crack the charts – but which haven't held on without the support of hipsters over the years. Material is pulled from a variety of majors at the time – RCA, Columbia, Mercury, and others – and titles include "Your Name Is Beautiful" by Carl Smith, "Little Black Book" by Jimmy Dean, "Chip Off The Old Block" by Eddy Arnold, "Back Track" by Faron Young, "Dark Moon" by Bonnie Guitar, "Mary Don't You Weep" by Stonewall Jackson, "The Auctioneer" by Leroy Van Dyke, "Who Shot Sam" by George Jones, "Blue Blue Day" by Don Gibson, "Four Walls" by Jim Reeves, "My Shoes Keep Walking Back To You" by Ray Price, "Rockin Rollin Ocean" by Hank Snow, "I'm Saving My Love" by Skeeter Davis, "Soldier's Joy" by Hawkshaw Hawkins, and "Cowboy Boots" by Dave Dudley.

Lars GullinPortrait Of My Pals (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol (Sweden), 1964. New Copy ... $3.99 12.99
A genius album from Swedish baritone giant Lars Gullin – and a set that's from a period that was much less documented on our side of the Atlantic! Gullin was one of the undisputed masters of the instrument, and his American recordings on Mercury and Prestige stand as proof to his talent – but his work from the 60s, done back in his native Sweden, has been lost for years – and is often deeper and more complicated than his US sides of the 50s! This set from 1964 features Gullin in the company of a host of very talented "pals" that includes some of the greatest talents in jazz in Sweden at the time – Rolf Billberg on alto, Jan Allan on trumpet, Harry Backlund on tenor, Torgny Nilsson on trombone, and Lars Sjosten on piano – all artists used by Gullin in varying combinations, working through these wonderful arrangements of original tunes that are among some of the best he ever wrote. The set features haunting arrangements that defy description, and which allow the soloists free room to express themselves in a manner that skirts between hardbop and modernism, but which always manages to swing! Titles include "It's True", "I've Seen", "Prima Vera", "Decent Eyes", "Gabriella", and "Portrait Of My Pals". CD also features 4 bonus tracks too! CD

✨✧ Quincy JonesCinema Of Quincy Jones (6CD box set) ... CD
Universal (France), 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 6CD ... Out Of Stock
A much-needed look at an overlooked side of the genius of Quincy Jones – not his jazz work, not his productions for famous soul artists, but instead his huge legacy of soundtrack material – a part of Q's career that really took off in the 60s! By the time he started working in films, Jones had already had a decade under his belt as one of the hippest arrangers, leaders, and composers in jazz – and the film business really respected those talents, and allowed Quincy to bring some really fresh styles into play – modes that really opened up the vibe of American cinema, and also paved the way for the funky styles of the 70s! As that decade approached, Jones left behind the cinema to take on some more higher-profile records of his own – but all the charms of those great albums can be found here at their roots – in this stunning collection of soundtrack material, some of which has never been on CD. The package is way more than just a sampler – and includes an album's worth of material from the films The Pawnbroker, Slender Thread, Mirage, The Deadly Affair, In The Heat Of The Night, In Cold Blood, Walk Don't Run, The Italian Job, Lost Man, and John & Mary – plus two versions of the love theme from The Getaway, and a bonus CD with 18 tracks – titled Q's highlights, and featuring tracks from his Mercury records – plus more by Billy Preston, Arthur Prysock, Bill Cosby, Shirley Horn, Letta Mbulu, Toots Thielemans, and others. Even features the "Sanford & Son" and "Ironside" themes! CD

✨✧ Gap BandGap Band V – Jammin' ... LP
Mercury, 1983. Very Good- ... $1.99
The Gap Band are definitely Jammin on this sweet little set from the early 80s – hitting that fierce funk mode they do so well, with lots of snapping lines at the bottom of the rhythms! The style is trademark Gap all the way through – a percolated approach to funk that's tight, but never too slick – in a groove that's different than some of their other mainstream counterparts at the time – hard to describe accurately, but almost with a touch of jazz in the mix! Charlie Wilson handles most of the lead vocals, with support from brothers Robert and Ronnie – and Ronnie produced most of the set. Titles include "Where Are We Going", "Shake A Leg", "Jam The Motha", "Someday", "You're Something Special", "I'm Ready", "You're My Everything", "Smile", and "Jammin In America". CD also features the bonus track "Party Train (special dance mix)". LP, Vinyl record album

Quincy JonesBig Band Bossa Nova ... LP
Mercury, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $12.99
Perhaps THE greatest Quincy Jones album of the 60s – a hard-swinging batch of big band bossa tunes – and one of the greatest American takes on the bossa sound ever! Quincy really brings a lot of soul to the set – syncopating the bottom end of the tunes to really bring out the rhythms, and working with a jazzy flourish of horns that creates all these quick and clever little turns in the tunes! The sound's been heard most famously on the incredible track "Soul Bossa Nova" – an original by Quincy for the set, which has gone onto much greater fame through its use in the film Austin Powers, and a bazillion TV commercials! But the whole album's great too – and other tracks include "Serenata", "Lalo Bossa Nova", "Boogie Bossa Nova", and "Chega De Saudade". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label stereo pressing with deep groove. Cover has light wear.)

VariousDial Records Southern Soul Story ... CD
Kent (UK), 1960s/Mid 70s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $11.99 22.99
A long-overdue look at one of the greatest southern soul labels ever – the mighty Dial Records, home to Joe Tex during most of his classic years! The label was based in Nashville, and formed by Buddy Killen to record early work by Joe Tex – right at a time when Joe was helping forge the sound that would later be known as country soul. Through the years, Buddy issues titles independently, and through Atlantic and Mercury – all the time giving Joe just the right sound he needed, while at the same time picking up a host of other artists who were perfect for Dial's unique crossbreed sound. Joe's work has been reissued over the years, but this set's the first time it's been presented alongside that of his peers – in a whopping 2CD set that features 51 tracks in all, complete with notes on Joe, Killen, and the unique style of Dial! Titles include "Footprints On My Mind", "You Oughta Be Here With Me", "Get Your Thing Together", and "Love Connection" by Annette Snell; "I Need You" and "I Am A Carpet" by Little Archie; "Don't Let The Sun Shine On Me" by The Dialtones; "Somebody Will" and "I Refuse To Give Up" by Clarence Reid; "Can't Help It", "Only Your Love", "Chills & Fever", and "Since I Found You" by Paul Kelly; "I've Got A Thing Going On" and "Get Down With It" by Bobby Marchan; "Dr Funky" and "You Really Fooled Me" by Chris Harris; "Can You Dig It" and "Learning To Forget You" by King Floyd; and loads more by Joe Tex, Jean Knight, Frederick Knight, Clarence Henry, and others!

✨✧ Os CariocasMillenium ... CD
Mercury (Brazil), Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Os Cariocas were one of the first in a long line of jazz vocal groups to inhabit the Brazilian scene of the 60s – and this tasty 20 track compilation brings together some of their best bossa work from the old days! The tracks on the set range from 1963 to 1966, and the arrangements and production are a stunning example of the way that the group took an American jazz harmony style and infused it with the winning groove of the bossa. Tracks include "Minha Namorada", "Samba Do Aviao", "Sabe Voce", "Preciso Aprender A Ser So", "Rio", "Samba Da Pergunta", and "So Tinha De Ser Com Voce". CD

✨✧ Sylvia TellesAmor Em Hi-Fi ... CD
Mercury/Philips (Japan), 1961. Used ... Out Of Stock
Romantic bossa work from the lovely Sylvia Telles – an album that predates her 60s albums for Elenco, and which almost has an equal amount of jazz in the mix as well! Sylvia was one of the few Brazilian singers of her generation who could work equally well in English as well as Portuguese – and one track here is an extended medley of the American standards "All The Way", "The Boy Next Door", and "They Can't Take That Away From Me" – sung in a lightly jazzy style that's totally great. Other tracks are a mix of bossa standards by Jobim, Roberto Menescal, Joao Gilberto, and others – recorded with backings that are light and sweet, and which sometimes include a bit of harmony vocals in the chorus – a nice touch, and one that gives the record a nice sense of variety! Titles include "Dindi", "Nao Gosto Mais De Mim", "Gardez Moi Pour Toujours", "Samba Torto", "Corcovado", "Tete", "Chora Tua Tristeza", and "Oba-La-La". CD

✨✧ Eyes Of BlueCrossroads Of Time (with bonus track) ... CD
Mercury/Esoteric (UK), 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Great work from a group who definitely are in the budding years of the UK progressive scene – but one who also knows how to stick to a tighter combo sound too! The record's got a really wonderful vibe – the full-on fire of some late beat group work, but much more farther-reaching in conception – both lyrically and instrumentally, especially when some light production touches kick in to do great things to the organ and vocals. The musical themes are a bit heady, too – some nicely political touches, but in a subtle way – and the group also turn out a nice over of Love's "7 + 7 Is", alongside other tracks that include "Crossroads Of Time", "I'll Be Your Friend", "Prodigal Son", "Largo", "Love is The Law", and "Inspiration For A New Day". CD features the bonus single "Q III". CD

✨✧ Eyes Of BlueIn Fields Of Ardath (with bonus track) ... CD
Mercury/Esoteric (UK), 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Very cool work from this unique Welsh group of the 60s a combo who might have started out in beat group modes, but really go for something different on this unique set! Eyes Of Blue have this spacious style that almost recalls the Moody Blues at times – but they're also much more gritty and soulful as well – almost as if they hit territory between the Moodies first record and their ambitous later works, but also draw on wider musical references that have them covering a Django Reinhardt tune on one track, and throwing in some classical references on another. Titles include the cut "Merry Go Round", which they did for a film with Quincy Jones – plus "The Light We See", "Souvenirs", "Little Bird", "Door", "Spanish Blues", "Chances", and "After The War". CD also features the bonus single "Apache 69". CD
Also available In Fields Of Ardath ... LP 29.99
