✨✧ LakesideFantastic Voyage/I Can't Get You Out Of My Head ... 12-inch
Solar, 1980. Used ... Out Of Stock
Easily one of the greatest Lakeside tracks ever – a keyboard-heavy bit of funk that really helped set the sound for the west coast scene at the time! There's a strong hook to the number that really makes it stand out from Lakeside's other work – still rough on the main vocals, but supported by warmer choruses that help it glide along with the promise of the bottom! "Can't Get You Out Of My Head" is a mellower ballad. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Shrinkwrap was attached with masking tape to the sleeve.)

Tony CrombieWhole Lotta Tony – Tony Crombie & His Friends ... CD
Ember/Fantastic Voyage (UK), 1961. New Copy ... $3.99
A record that's not just noteworthy for being a sweet early 60s date from British drummer Tony Crombie – but also for its great work on alto sax and flute from a young Harold McNair! McNair would go onto greater fame in the London scene of the late 60s – on both the jazz and rock fronts – but he already sounds wonderful here, and adds a sense of wit and whimsy to the record that Crombie's other albums don't usually have – a sly edge on both of his reed instruments that really makes the music sparkle with soul! Other great players include Tommy Whittle on tenor and bass clarinet, and Gordon Beck on both piano and harpsichord – the latter of which sounds especially great in a jazz setting. Titles include "Gut Bucket", "Round The Ouses", "Brazilia", "Flute Salad", "Journey's End", "The Gang Busters", and "Penthouse Party". CD

Tubby HayesJazz Genius – The Flamingo Era (3CD set) ... CD
Tempo/Fantastic Voyage (UK), 1956/1957/1958/1959/1961. Used 3CD ... $13.99
Tubby Hayes is definitely a genius – we've been saying that for years, and it's nice to have a CD set that finally states it as proof! The UK tenorist was easily one of the best players going in the late 50s and early 60s – on either side of the Atlantic – and although Tubbs recorded a bit in the US, most of his work never hit these shores, as it was recorded for the Tempo label in England. This package nicely corrects that fact, and presents a sublime assortment of classic Tubby Hayes grooves from his best years – a period when he was often working in the company of co-tenorist Ronnie Scott, and also getting great accompaniment from the cream of the UK scene – including Jimmy Deuchar on trumpet, Terry Shannon and Bill LeSage on piano, Lenny Bush and Phil Bates on bass, and Tony Crombie and Bill Eyden on drums. The 3CD set brings together 6 albums from the Tempo label – Tubby Hayes & The Jazz Couriers, An Evening With Tony Kinsey, The Jazz Couriers In Concert, Jazz At The Flamingo, Tony Crombie & His Men, and London Jazz Quartet – some of which weren't under Hayes' name as a leader, but which still feature some very strong contributions on tenor, plus a bit of vibes and flute as well! 41 tracks in all – with titles that include "Runnymede Groove", "What A Gas", "Through The Night Roared The Overland Express", "Royal Ascot", "Cheek To Cheek", "Laker's Day", "Odd Man Out", "London Lament", and "Mirage".

Ronnie RossStompin' With The Ronnie Ross Quintet ... CD
Ember/Fantastic Voyage (UK), New Copy ... $3.99
British reedman Ronnie Ross really shines brightly on this set – a well-crafted batch of tunes that takes a great lead from his strong work on baritone sax! The sound is somewhat tightly arranged – a bit in a US west coast mode from the time – but the groove's also a bit looser at points, and really has some nice edges on the solos. Ross blows baritone and a bit of alto sax, and other players include Bert Courtley on trumpet, Eddie Harvey on piano (and a bit of trombone), Pete Blannin on bass, and Andy White on drums. Titles include the Ross originals "Lucky Bean", "Blue Grass", and "Red Prune" – plus versions of Don Rendell's "Donation" and Tubby Hayes' "The Serpent". CD

Mickey StevensonHere I Am (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Ember/Fantastic Voyage (UK), 1972. Used ... $6.99
A killer solo debut from Mickey Stevenson – an artist who's probably best known for his Motown production work of the 60s, but a surprisingly great singer – as you'll hear on this rare early 70s set! The album's got a wonderful depth – a real mix of modes that has Mickey tackling deep soul, psychedelic soul, and some especially great adult material – really mature numbers that provide a perfect showcase for Stevenson's vocal range. Luchi DeJesus arranged the album with Mickey, and it's got a sophisticated vibe that reminds us of 70s work by Lamont Dozier or Leon Ware – no surprise in the case of the latter, as the album features four great songs penned by Ware! Titles include "Lonnie's Face", "Gonna Be Alright", "What Could Be Better", "Stormy", "Salliey", "Here I Am", "Joe Poor", "Trouble's A Loser", and "Knock On Any Door". CD also features 2 bonus tracks – "I Need You So" and "I'm On My Way Back To You". CD
