✨✧ Roberta Flack & Donny HathawayRoberta Flack Featuring Donny Hathaway ... LP
Atlantic, 1979. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Beautiful duo soul from the all-time great Roberta Flack and Donny Hathaway – released right around the time of Donny's tragic passing! The set was co-produced by Eric Mercury and Flack – and it has a lot of great vocals from Roberta, with as masterfully paired with Donny as always – plus guest vocal appearances by Luther Vandross, Gwen Guthrie, and Eleanore Mills, and even Mercury, who sings a bit on one track! Titles include couple of nice Stevie Wonder tunes – "You Are My Heaven" and "Don't Make Me Wait Too Long" – plus "Stay With Me", "God Don't Like Ugly", "Only Heaven Can Wait", and "Disguises". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear & aging. Includes inner sleeve.)

Charles MingusMingus Revisited (aka Pre-Bird) ... LP
Limelight, 1960. Very Good- Gatefold ... $11.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Gatefold pressing, with booklet.)

David OliverJamerican Man (aka David Oliver) ... LP
Mercury, 1977. Very Good+ ... $5.99
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

DelegationIn Love's Time – The Delegation Story 1976 to 1983 ... CD
Big Break (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $15.99
A career-spanning look at the music of Delegation – one of the few UK soul groups of the 70s who could go head-to-head with the best American acts of the time! Delegation have this razor-sharp style that almost prefaces 80s groove – a mode that was born in the disco generation, but which is much leaner overall – and really well-suited to the vocal approach of the trio – who themselves are maybe tighter and hipper than a good deal of their contemporaries! By the time the 70s were drawing to a close, Delegation had really grown into something wonderful – and you'll hear a great evolution in sound and style on this massively-packed set – which includes early work for the State label, plus bigger sides for Ariola and Mercury – including a few single mixes too. 33 titles in all – with tracks that include "Turn On To City Life", "12th House", "It's Your Turn (12" mix)", "Heartache No 9 (12" mix)", "Oh Honey (12" mix)", "Stand Up", "Sho Nuff Sold On You", "Let Me Take You To The Sun", "Mr Heartbreak", "Gonna Bring The House Down", "Feels So Good", "Dance Prance Boogie", "Singing (12" mix)", "I Figure I'm Out Of Your Life", "I Wantcha Back", "Tell Her", "Welcome To My World", "We Can Make It", and "Someone Oughta Write A Song".

Lars GullinPortrait Of My Pals (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol (Sweden), 1964. New Copy ... $0.99 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 ... $29.99
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

✨✧ Sarah VaughanVaughan With Voices ... LP
Mercury, 1963. Used ... Out Of Stock
An unusual album for Sarah Vaughan, but a compelling one too – a set recorded in Copehagen with some Danish singers in the background – providing a pillowy cushion behind Sarah's lead, in ways that make for a wonderfully mellow record! Orchestrations are by Robert Farnon, who works well with the overseas voices in ways that are similar to his American work – and although the setting isn't as lean or groovy as some of Sarah's other Mercury work, it makes for a nice way of hearing the sadder tones in her style at the time – a bit like some of the bluer Roulette sides. Titles include "Blue Orchids", "Charade", "My Coloring Book", "Funny", "Days Of Wine & Roses", "How Beautiful Is Night", and "I'll Be Around". LP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo with deep groove.)

Mercury, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Moms takes her case to the White House – yakking it up with the usual hint at off-color comedy, and a knack for a soulful approach that actually helped her bridge more audiences than other African American comics of the time. Routines include "Me & LBJ", "The Beggar The Crash", "Introduction To Opera", and "Funnies". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jorgen IngmannSwing Softly ... LP
Mercury, Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Groovy guitar instrumental tracks by one of the biggest international talents of the 60's. Ingmann's guitar has a unique hard edged sound that's in keeping with American instrumentalists of the same type, but which has a cool overdubbed guitar sound that's a bit like Les Paul. Titles include "Margie", "Frenesi", "Qui Zaz", "Camondongo", and "Yourtel Gingando". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear & partially split top seam.)
