Larry Graham & Graham Central StationMy Radio Sure Sounds Good To Me ... LP
Warner, 1978. Very Good ... $1.99
Larry Graham's opening his sound up a fair bit for this one – bringing in a bit more of a rock influence than before, and letting the guitars fly all over the tunes! The style's one that's almost got a bit of a pre-Prince influence – more tightly poppy in the construction of the soul, and with a good crossover sound that might have earned Graham some of the "radio" in the title. Tracks include the tightly stepping groover "Is It Love", which has a great west coast slow funk approach, the P-Funky "Are You Happy", and the jazzy "Turn It Out", which has some particularly nice bass work. Other tracks include "Pow", "Boogie Witcha Baby", and "Mr Friend". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the lyric sleeve. Cover has some wear and a gold promo stamp.)

✨✧ Steely DanCountdown To Ecstasy ... LP
ABC, 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Superb work from Steely Dan – and a record that really shows them hitting perfection in the studio! The core sound of this one's jazzier than before – with some great help on instrumentation from Victor Feldman, Lanny Morgan, Bill Perkins, and other west coast jazzers – all helping the group sound great on some of the tightest tracks ever written by the team of Becker and Fagan! Ecstasy is definitely in reach with the sound of this set – a sublime effort all the way through that really set a whole new standard in 70s rock! Includes classics like "Bodhisattva", "Your Gold Teeth", "My Old School", and "Show Biz Kids". LP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow label ABC pressing.)

Buddy and Monk Montgomery (Wes' brothers) play vibes and bass in this groovy instrumental combo that also includes Richie Crabtree on piano and Bennie Barth on drums.

Ohio PlayersOhio Players Gold ... LP
Mercury, 1976. Very Good Gatefold ... $3.99
A well-titled set – as it's the mid 70s, and the Ohio Players were certainly turning out a lot of gold! Their move to Mercury Records from the smaller indie Westbound was a real winning move – as it gave them a smoother soul feel that only expanded their groove, not restricted it! This tasty "best of" set features most of their top work from those years – with killer tunes that include "Love Rollercoaster", "Fire", "Skin Tight", "Who'd She Coo", "Feel The Beat", "I Want To Be Free", "Fopp", "Far East Mississippi", "Only A Child Can Love", "Jive Turkey (part 1)", and the great "Sweet Sticky Thing"!

OpaGolden Wings ... LP
Milestone, 1976. Very Good ... $9.99
An excellent bit of lost Brazilian fusion Hugo and Jorge Fattoruso, produced by Airto Moriera! Opa recorded Golden Wings in the Fantasy studios with that sweet west coast vibe that the best albums of the label had at the time. Spacey keyboards and drums drive the sound brilliantly here, with bits of funk and sweet fusiony soundscapes. Hermeto Pascoal plays flute on a couple of numbers and Airto guest on a number of tracks, too! Titles include "Golden Wings", "Groove", the suite "Pieces: Tombo/La Escuela/Tombo/The Last Goodbye", "Corre Nina" and "African Bird". Nice stuff, and a band that always gets overlooked!

(Cover has a promo stamp and some wear.)

Mel TormeCalifornia Suite ... LP
Bethlehem, 1957. Near Mint- ... $24.99
An insane record – simply insane! Mel Torme wrote the California Suite as a tribute to his home state during the glorious postwar years of growth and boom – and it contains some of the weirdest songs he ever sung! At the base, the work is driven by the same west coast jazz arrangements by Marty Paich that you'll find on some of Mel's other Bethlehem albums – but the songs can be incredibly goofy, rhyming towns in CA with catchy words and phrases, pairing Marines in San Diego with wealthy old widows, and leveling San Francisco with one of the worst puns on "Golden Gate" that we've ever heard! Still, the album's an essential one if you're a fan of Mel Torme – not only because it's got some wonderful vocals in the best parts, but also because it's a true reflection of his deep commitment to pushing the boundaries of jazz music. Tracks include "West Coast Is The Best Coast", "They Go To San Diego", "LA", and "Poor Little Extra Girl". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original red label pressing with deep groove. Cover has a promo stamp.)

✨✧ Emitt RhodesMirror ... LP
Dunhill, 1971. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the best records that Emitt Rhodes cut on his own after leaving The Merry Go Round – a slightly rough blend of rock, folk, and dimmed sunny pop influences – and a perfect document of the waning light of the west coast scene at the turn of the 70s. There's almost a boozy feel to the work – Rhodes' vocals a little scratchy, and the songs honestly plucked out like some of Nilsson's more intimate work – touched with occasionally more expansive instrumentation. Titles include "Side We Seldom Show", "Mirror", "Really Wanted You", "My Love Is Strong", "Better Side Of Life", "Love Will Stone You", and "Golden Child Of God". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear & a cutout hole.)

✨✧ VariousCalifornia Soul 2 – Super Cool – Raw & Rare Soul From The West Coast 1966 to 1982 ... LP
Luv N' Haight, Late 60s/1970s/Early 80s. Used 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A golden state's worth of funky soul from the 60s and 70s – pulled together in a collection that's arguably even better than the first volume in the series! The tracks here are all incredibly solid – tunes that aren't just great because they're rare, but because they perfectly illustrate the hard-hitting groove going on in the California underground – the ability to keep cooking things up with a fierce and righteous sound in the shadow of the bigger labels operating out of the scene at the time. Bits of trippy jazz sit nicely next to straighter soul numbers – and the collection beautifully intersperses completely obscure numbers with some of the few names who've risen to legend in recent years, due to the efforts of DJs and collectors. Titles include "Half Way Loving" by Buddy Conner, "Compared To What" by Gow Do Experience, "Supercool" by Pat Hunt, "Revolution Rap" by Joey Jefferson Band, "Fancy" by Spanky Wilson, "Beverly" by Mokie JJ & ROB, "Isn't It Lonely" by Carmelita, "I Know You're Leaving Me" by Sy Hightower, "Big Herm" by LAPD, "I'm Hungry" by Johnny Morisette, "I Have Changed" by HP Riot, "Space Nigga" by Rodney Trotter, "Psychedelic Sally" by Gow Do Experience, and "We Got To Get It Together" by David Glover. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Lord Finesse & DJ Mike SmoothFunky Technician ... LP
Wild Pitch, 1990. Used ... Out Of Stock
Furious, battle-tested early 90s mastery from Lord Finesse – with pitch perfect production by DJ Premier, Diamond D, Showbiz and Mike Smooth – an east coast golden age classic! Funky Technician is mysteriously slept on in too many discussions of the best hip hop of the era, but it's still way up there if you ask us. The backing is tight funky beatcraft from the above mention legendary producers and Finesse rocks the mic with long trails of busy rhymes. Greatness! Includes "Baby You Nasty", "Funky Technician", "Back To Back Rhyming", "Here I Come", "Slave To My Soundwave", "I Keep The Crowd Listening", "Bad Mutha", "Keep It Flowing", "Lesson To Be Taught", "Just A Little Something", "Strictly For The Ladies" and "Track The Movement". LP, Vinyl record album
(Test pressing, with handwritten labels, and label design insert.)
