✨✧ Oscar Brown Jr.Between Heaven & Hell ... LP
Columbia, 1962. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Great early work from Oscar Brown Jr – a hip mix of jazz and soul, working in Brown's unique sense of showmanship, and his almost beat-like flair with a lyric! Ralph Burns and Quincy Jones handled the arrangements – and the album's filled with great original tracks by Brown, including "Mr. Kicks", "Opportunity, Please Knock", Love is Like a New Born Child", "Elegy (Plain Black Boy)", "Hazel's Hips", and many more! Nice jazzy groove, and very much in the best style of Oscar's 60s work! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Deep JazzHeaven & Earth ... LP
Perfect Toy (Germany), 2009. New Copy ... $11.99
An album that's every bit as hip as you'd expect from its Sam Rivers-inspired cover image – a beautiful tribute to the modal jazz scene of the 60s, particularly the work of John Coltrane and some of his followers on Impulse Records! Apart from a cover of "Naima", though, the set's hardly a simple rehash of Coltrane modes – as all other tunes are originals, and the band delivers them with a core piano trio groove, then adds in flute, tenor, and soprano sax on different tracks! Rhythm is at the heart of the record, and bassist/leader Jerker Kluge really moves the group with a pulsating sound on his instrument – a deep, soulful tone that's matched beautifully by the brightly soaring piano lines of Jo Junghanss. A few cuts feature vocals by Julia Fehenberger, who further deepens the soul of the record – and the whole thing's a massive killer – like finding some lost Saba/MPS gem from the late 60s, with all the European jazz genius you'd expect from such a reference. Titles include "Heaven & Earth", "Naima", "Orange Flower", "Red Smoke", "Starlings Talk", and "Black Tiger". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Heaven & EarthHeaven & Earth ... LP
Mercury, 1978. Very Good ... $7.99
Excellent work from this smooth Chicago vocal group! The album may well be the best the group ever recorded – and it features some stellar ballad work produced with a nice spacey tone, almost in a Rose Royce mellow mode – by Jerry Butler's Fountain Productions team and by Clarence Johnson, who brought the group up from the beginning! The real strength of the album, though, is the group's vocals – wonderfully harmonious, but with a rougher edge and a deeper soul than many other 70s groups of the same type. The album includes the massive semi-hit "Guess Who's Back In Town" – plus other good ballads like "How Do You Think You're Gonna Find Love", "Let's Work It Out", and "Distant Melody". The album also features some uptempo numbers – and other tracks include "Run & Tell That", "Dance A Thon", and "No Limit". LP, Vinyl record album

Washington PhillipsWhat Are They Doing In Heaven Today? ... LP
Mississippi, 1920s/1930s. New Copy ... $11.99
Very early gospel work from Washington Phillips – a spiritual singer, but one who works in a style that's a lot more blues-based than later proponents of the genre! The style here is relatively spare – mostly just Washington's vocals and a bit of guitar or piano – the latter of which has the small-voiced sound of the instrument in the image on the cover – which leaves a lot more room for the vocals! Phillips inflects most of the lyrics with a definite blues-based sensibility, too – which brings plenty of secular feel to the music – and titles include "Denomination Blues (parts 1 & 2)", "Train Your Child", "Paul & Silas In Jail", "I Was Born To Preach The Gospel", and "What Are They Doing In Heaven Today".

Heaven & EarthRefuge ... LP
Ovation/Lion, 1973. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
A beautiful early 70s psych folk set from the angelic vocal and songwriting duo of Pat Gefell and Jo D Andrews – their Refuge album for Ovation in 1973 – highlighted by their gorgeous vocals, but committed with lovely, lightly soaring arrangements! Save for a solid cover of the Elton John/Bernie Taupin penned "Sixty Years On", Gefell and Andrews wrote the songs here, and it's remarkably strong stuff! The duo vocals and harmonies are especially sweet. The Chicago-based production wisely leaves ample space in the arrangements for them to sort of loosely, emotively embellish with their voices – with string arrangements by co-producer George Andrews and an impressive roster of session players including bassist Phil Upchurch, drummer Don Simmons and percussionist Bobby Christian. Includes "Jenny", "Voice In The Wind", "To A Flame", "Tomorrow Is A Long Time", "Refuge", "Song For Craig", "A Light Is Shining", "Feel The Spirit" and more. Heavy vinyl and cover – and features a great insert with notes! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Heaven 17Penthouse & Pavement ... LP
Virgin, 1981. Used ... Out Of Stock
The boldest face of politics on the dancefloor in the early 80s – a tremendous little debut from Heaven 17, formed out of the ashes of the original lineup of Human League! At a time when the League was going a bit soft and pop, Heaven 17 picked up a stronger social agenda than before – touching on themes of corporate greed, military buildup, and class struggle – all cast within a batch of extremely catchy dancefloor numbers! The musical style is somewhat in the Brit electro pop mode of the period, but often funkier and more creative – a factor that helped the group cross over nicely to a soul market here in the states. Titles include "Soul Warfare", "Play To Win", "Penthouse & Pavement", "Fascist Groove Thing", "Geisha Boys & Temple Girls", "Let's All Make A Bomb", and "The Height Of The Fighting".

✨✧ VariousMusic From Planet Earth Vol 2 – Aliens, Teenie Weenie Men, Moonbeams, & The Gayway To Heaven (10 inch vinyl pressing) ... LP
Stag O Lee (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Music from outer space, but sounds with an origin on planet earth – all recorded during that late 50s/early 60s stretch when so many folks were experimenting with new modes of expression in the studio! The tracks here are a mix of rockers and more offbeat instrumental ones – great postwar space-age stuff from the time when rockets were first cresting over the horizon – inspiring musicians to make new sounds for the coming age of exploration. Guitars collide with theremin, percussion, atonal strings, electronics, and more – and titles include "Into Space" by Russ Garcia, "Mist O The Moon" by Dr Samuel J Hoffman, "Hey Moon" by Carl & The Spindletoppers, "Rocking Chair On The Moon" by Rusty Wellington, "Moonshot" by Joe & Rose Lee Maphis, "Gayway To Heaven" by Attilio Mineo, "The Alient Planet" by Jean Jacques Perry, "Teenie Weenie Man" by Danny Wheeler, and "Rocking To Telstar" by Cees & His Skyliners.

AliveCall It Jazz ... LP
Redwood, 1981. Near Mint- ... $6.99
The second album by this excellent all-female San Francisco jazz combo – a live date that's even more cooking than their debut! As before, there's a sweetly breezy style to the record – that hip SF sound of the 70s – with echoes of Braziliana and soul amidst the group's jazzier leanings – all wrapped together with a sound that's tight, but never uptight! The female vocals give the music a feel that's like Janet Lawson, Sheila Landis, or some of the hipper European singers of the 70s – and instrumentation is mostly acoustic, save for a bit of Fender Rhodes. Titles include a version of Gil Scott-Heron's "Willing", plus "Greeting Song", "Call It Jazz", "Too Bad", "Golden River/Golden Dream", and "Heaven Is In Your Mind". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Rance Allen GroupSoulful Experience ... LP
Truth/Stax, 1975. Very Good- ... $14.99
A beautiful mix of gospel soul and heavy Memphis production – and the kind of heavy soul album that made Rance Allen one of Stax's best new artists during the 70s. David Porter produced and arranged, and the album has some great electric keyboard work by Rance that provides a perfect counterfoil for his rich baritone voice. The album's a lot more stripped down than later efforts – with a rootsy sound that should have made Rance even bigger with the crossover crowd. Titles include "Talk That Talk", "The Painter", "Ring My Bell", and "Harlem Heaven". LP, Vinyl record album

A sparkling set from Les Brown & His Band Of Reknown! A mid 50s session that features mostly older numbers from the 30s and 40s, retooled a bit for the new decade, yet still very much in a swing-based mode! There's some hip instrumental touches in the charts that definitely update the music nicely – horn flourishes that you'd never hear a decade before, recorded with high quality Hollywood fidelity for the date. Titles include "Stardust", "Sleepy Time Gal", "Swingin Down The Lane", "My Blue Heaven", "I Never Knew", and "Cecilia". LP, Vinyl record album

Earl ColemanEarl Coleman & The Latin Love In ... LP
Worthy, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A Latin monster – and one of our favorite albums from the New York scene! The record is the only one we've ever seen from pianist Earl Coleman – and it's a groove-happy fiesta that's every bit Spanish Harlem at its best. Earl's piano is flowing and free, and the band grooves through tracks that dip, turn, and soar like some of the best hard-jamming numbers from Joe Cuba, Ray Barretto, or Joe Bataan from the time. Some tracks feature soulful English vocals, and the titles alone should give you the feel of the set – "Hippy Heaven", "Latin Love-In", "Banana-Loo", and "What You Gonna Do". LP, Vinyl record album

Sam Cooke/Blind Boys/Gospel HarmonettesI Thank God ... LP
Doxy (Italy), 1960. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
Seminal sounds from the early years of soul music – that time when spiritual recordings had a strong influence on the style of the secular world – as showcased in the album's cover shot of the great Sam Cooke! The collection brings together some of Sam's gospel recordings alongside work by two other groups who were more spiritual overall – The Gospel Harmonettes and The Blind Boys – both great vocal groups who really show how much the gospel harmony style went onto influence soul groups for the 60s. The package is great – and really gets at the roots of Cooke's legendary sound – and titles include "I Thank God", "Deep River", "That's Heaven To Me", and "Steal Away" by Sam; plus "Jericho Walls, "Love Lifted Me", and "Trust & Obey" by Gospel Harmonettes; and "Oh Lord Fix It", "This Friend Jesus", and "You Got To Move" by The Blind Boys.

8th DayI Gotta Get Home (Can't Let My Baby Get Lonely) ... LP
Invictus, 1973. Very Good- ... $14.99
A bit confused at points, but one of the funkiest albums on Invictus! The 8th Day group was a loosely conceived batch of Detroit soul talents designed to cash in on a concept of the Holland-Dozier-Holland team – but fortunately, they also included some wonderful talents that could make some great music when they wanted to. One of these was the vastly under-discovered Detroit organist Lyman Woodard –who contributed the fantastic track "Cheba" to the album, an incredible organ groover that's unlike anything you've ever heard, rolling on with this pinched Hammond sound over congas, all-instrumental, and completely seductive! Another was Melvin Davis, who had recorded the song "Good Book" as a solo artist – but which was released here as if it was by the group. There's also a great guitarist in the group – unnamed due to the lack of liner notes – but who really shines on the funky tracks "Anythang", "Rocks In My Head", and "Heaven Is There To Guide Us", all with a fuzzed-out Detroit 70s groove! LP, Vinyl record album

Coke EscovedoCoke ... LP
Mercury, 1975. Very Good ... $6.99
An incredible fusion of all the greatness that was going on in the Bay Area scene of the 70s – put together by Coke Escovedo – the brother of Pete and Sheila E, former leader of Azteca, and onetime member of Santana! Yet this set sounds like none of that previous work at all – and instead is great grooving soul, infused both with the sophistication of fusion and some of the Latin elements of Escovedo's roots – all produced to perfection by Patrick Gleeson – who most folks know for his own spacey keyboard work with Bennie Maupin and others! The mix of elements going on is really complex, but comes across with effortless ease – one of those rare fusions that could happen at a bigger label when all the right talents were brought together. The record kind of "out-Fantasys" the best of Fantasy Records in the Bay Area at the time – and makes great use of singers Linda and Calvin Tillery, plus the great Harvey Mason on drums. Titles include wonderful covers of Lamont Dozier's "Why Can't We Be Lovers" and Leon Ware's "If I Ever Lose This Heaven" – plus the tracks "What Are You Under", "No One To Depend On", "Easy Come Easy Go", and "Make It Sweet". LP, Vinyl record album

FlamingosFlamingo Serenade ... LP
End, 1959. Very Good- ... $16.99
Stunning work from The Flamingos – part of the group's incredible second chapter at End Records, where they really transformed their sound from their years at Chess! The group were already great before, but at End, they found this way of making even more heaven with their harmonies – finding this sublime space that really blew away most of their contemporaries, especially on the ballads – with the lead soaring out, the harmonies gliding alongside, and the production this pillowy, breathy sort of brilliance. The album's one of the best illustrations of this genius at its best – and titles include the sublime hit "I Only Have Eyes For You", plus "Love Walked In", "But Not For Me", and "Time Was". Spooky, heavenly, and totally wonderful! LP, Vinyl record album

Charlotte GainsbourgIRM (with bonus CD) ... LP
Because (France), 2010. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $26.99
A stunner from Charlotte Gainsbourg – in keeping with her style of crafting a diverse body of avant pop sounds by working with stellar collaborators – this time with producer/composer Beck, and it's her best to date! A few tunes are sung in French and have a kind of dramatic French pop noir vibe that would made Serge proud, a mix of sweet and sultry, lightness and drama. Others have more of a raw and messed up vibe with heavier percussion and more of a leftfield sound, and still others have kind of a freaky folk funk sound with horns, drums and more. She covers a lot of stylistic terrain with equally successful wins all around. It's the mark of a true talent that Charlotte can invite such hugely impacting collaborators onto her albums – Beck and his stable of amazing studio musicians on this album, and previous collaborators from Jarvis Cocker to Air – yet it's her show all the way. Titles include "Master's Hands", "IRM", "Le Chat Du Cafe Des Artistes", "In The End", "Heaven Can Wait", "Vanities", "Time Of The Assassins", "Trick Pony", "Greenwich Mean Time", "La Collectionneuse" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Tubby HayesTubby's Back In Town ... LP
Smash, Early 60s. Very Good ... $38.99
An amazing record by one of England's greatest jazz talents ever! This very rare album was recorded in the US, under the supervision of Roland Kirk – who also plays on the record, along with Walter Bishop Jr, Sam Jones, and Louis Hayes. Tubby's tone is fantastic – with all the raw mature cutting solo power that's made his early 60s sessions some of our favorite jazz records ever. Putting him on a record with Kirk was a genius move – as Kirk's approach brings out a nuttiness in Hayes that you don't always get in his otherwise more straight-laced British groups. Titles include "Lady E", "Afternoon In Paris", "I See With My Third I", and "For Heaven's Sake". Nice long tracks, too! LP, Vinyl record album

Hard rock perfected! It's around Led Zeppelin IV that you can easily say that the group moved up from being incredibly great to flat-out legendary – really in a class by themselves, although maybe they'd already reached that point with the sublime sounds of the previous three records! There's a darkness here – and a sense of magick too – an eerie new energy that still has all the balls-out rock power of before, but which has the group moving into this heady territory that's really all their own. Every song is a classic – and tracks include "Black Dog", "Stairway To Heaven", "Rock And Roll", "Misty Mountain Hop", "When The Levee Breaks", "Going To California", "Four Sticks", and "Battle Of Evermore".

That great McPhatter rasp is still nicely present, even amidst the strings and fuller backings from Glenn Osser – and even though many of the tunes are standards, the McPhatter touch helps them stay fresh. Titles include "You Belong To Me", "That's My Desire", "What Will I Tell My Heart", "These Foolish Things", "When Did You Leave Heaven", and "Put Your Arms Around Me Honey". LP, Vinyl record album

Vendetta Records, 2015. New Copy ... $23.99
The final entry in the Good Morning Vietnam trilogy from veteran underground rhymer/writer MF Grimm and producer Drasar Monumental – perhaps the rawest and hardest hitting of the three! The smart, dexterous rhymes are laced with wartime imagery and backed by thematic samples throughout, always walking the fineline between hypnotic heaviness and sensory overload. It's a delicate balance – and they make it work strongly once again on this closing entry in the series –always with enough jazzy funk and cracking soul in the beats to keep your heads nodding, even in the heaviest moments. Includes "Birth Of Violence", "Rhymes Against Humanity", "Songs Of The Winter Soldier", "Economics", "One Bullet Away, Two Steps From Home", "Dust To Dust", "Family Birthday", "Harmonics", "Chain Letter", "For Those That Want To Label Us", "Glaciers Of Icex", "Hand Up To Heaven, Feet Firm In Hell" and more.

Miss Abrams & The Strawberry Point 4th GradeMiss Abrams & The Strawberry Point 4th Grade Class ... LP
Reprise, 1970. Very Good ... $24.99
A pretty great record from one of the coolest school teachers you could ever hope to have – the lovely Miss Rita Abrams, a hippie who was teaching in Marin County at the start of the 70s! The set's a project done by Abrams with her fourth grade class – a set that mostly features original tunes penned by Rita, filled with joy, hope, and the sort of optimism that characterized the Marin County scene of the post-Haight years – and performed with a cool blend of acoustic instrumentation next to Abrams keyboards – with some larger arrangements from Ed Bogas, who'd later work on hip soundtracks for Fantasy Records, across the Bay. There's nothing hokey about the set at all – as the tunes are great, and the kid-quality of the vocals is really kept to a minimum – more used to underscore the warmth in Rita's lead, and surprisingly never cloying at all – a lot like some of the best singer/songwriter projects on Reprise at the time, especially given Rita's cool electric keyboards. Titles include the cool single "Mill Valley" – plus "Floating Away", "Wonder", "Building A Heaven On Earth", "Running In The Green Grass", "Sweet Summertime", and "I Never Asked".

The all-star ensemble – which includes Blue Mitchell, Willie Bobo, Stix Hooper, Paul Humphrey, Charles Kynard, Ernie Watts, and Joe Pass – does an excellent job of grooving tightly, in a mellow funky style that's extremely well crafted. The highlight of the LP is the group's hard swinging version of "Freedom Jazz Dance", which begins with a bouncing bass sample that we totally love – but there's loads more nice tracks, including "Rio", "All This & Heaven Too", and "Twelve Tone Blues". LP, Vinyl record album
