Oscar Brown Jr.Between Heaven & Hell ... LP
Columbia, 1962. Very Good ... $2.99
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

Heaven & EarthRefuge ... LP
Ovation/Lion, 1973. Near Mint- Gatefold (reissue)... $9.99
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

Elliot SmithHeaven Adores You ... LP
Universal, 1990s/Early 2000s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $27.99 34.98
A sweet testament to the talent and earnestly soulful humanity of the late Elliot Smith – who made room for earnest folk songcraft in the lives of many an indie rock fan in the 1990s and early 00s – and the wrenching details (and lack thereof) pf his death are painful to this today. Sad ending aside, his songs are bruised and beautiful, and this soundtrack to the documentary Heaven Adores You shows many different facets, from solo guitar instrumentals, rare, alternate and live versions of a few of his best remembered tunes and rarely heard ones alike. It's pretty packed, too, with 20 tracks: "Don't Call Me Billy" (an early version of Fear City), "Christian Brothers" with his band Heatmiser, "Plainclothes Man" (solo version), "True Love", "Miss Misery" Live on Late Night With Conan O'Brien, "Son Of Sam" (acoustic version), "Happiness", "I Love My Room" and more.

Beautiful LosersNobody Knows The Heaven ... LP
Lion, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... About August 31, 2016
A glam folk rock album from mid 70s France – the only album by the Beautiful Losers – a record feels like the most restrained and acoustic based moments on glam era Bowie and Bolan efforts – sung in English and with big chords and big vocals but done mostly with just voice and acoustic guitar and a bass! It's hard to tell of the Losers were dreaming of a bigger, fuller sound, but the sparseness ultimately suits the songs and performances well, and makes quite a unique record. Titles include "Welcome", "Oxford 1825", "Spanish Women", "You Are Free", "Nobody Knows The Heaven", "Like An Old General", "Something To Do", "The Shining Car", "Yeah, Yeah, Yeah", "All Is Going Too Slow", "There Is A Blow" and more.

Heaven & EarthHeaven & Earth ... LP
Mercury, 1978. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
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

One of Donovan's greatest albums!

Nearly every cut on here is a tiny little 3 minute gem – and tunes include "There Was A Time", "Sun", "The Land Of Doesn't Have To Be", "Wear Your Love Like Heaven", "Little Boy In Corduroy", and "Mad John's Escape".

✨✧ Piero UmilianiSweden – Heaven & Hell (Svezia – Inferno E Paradiso) ... LP
Omicron/Schema (Italy), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the greatest soundtracks ever from the mighty Piero Umiliani – sounds initially written for a film that was an international "sexpose" of daily life in Sweden – but which have grown to even greater fame on their own over the years – thanks to the talent of the maestro! The music here is awash in groovy elements – lots of sweet Hammond organ lines, mod basslines, and some especially cool wordless vocals from the choir of Alessandro Alessandroni – scatting away in a great way alongside the instruments, and bringing an added level of breathy eroticism to the whole thing! This special LP version recreates the original Omicron release of the record – with titles that include the two lyrical tracks "You Tried To Warn Me" and "Sleep Now Little One", sung by Lydia McDonald – plus the tracks "Topless Party", "Eva Svedense", "Essere Donna", "La Signora Cameriera", "FotoModelle", and "Le Ragazze Dell'Archipellago". (Note, does not contain the track "Mah Na Mah Na", which is on other versions of the soundtrack – but it appears on the "partner" reissue of Umiliani's Psichedelica from Schema, under the title "Viva La Sauna Svedese".)

✨✧ Tubby HayesSeven Steps To Heaven – Live At The Hopbine 1972 (180 gram pressing – with bonus download) ... LP
Gearbox (UK), 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Late live work from the legendary Tubby Hayes – but material that still shows the tenor giant at the height of his powers! All tracks are nice and long, and really let Hayes stretch out – not just on tenor, but also on flute – an instrument that he plays with this surprisingly soulful tone, one that's almost a bit raspy at times, and as fluid in solo imagination as his tenor! The rest of the group is nice and lean – really giving Hayes plenty of room in the spotlight – and players include Mike Pyne on piano, Daryl Runswick on bass, and Tony Oxley on drums. The album features long takes on "Alone Together" and "Someday My Prince Will Come" – plus a six minute burning version of "Seven Steps To Heaven". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Dorothy AshbyRubaiyat Of Dorothy Ashby ... LP
Cadet, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
Incredible work from the amazing Dorothy Ashby – a brilliant set of funky and spiritual tunes, set to full backings from Chicago soul arranger Richard Evans! This album is easily one of Ashby's greatest, and it's dedicated to the writings of Omar Khayyam – one of the forces guiding Dorothy's more spiritual sound at the end of the 60s, clearly opened up in a way that's not unlike the direction of Alice Coltrane's work, but a lot more focused and a lot more funky! Ashby not only plays her usual jazz harp, but also koto as well, and even sings a bit too – and the larger group directed by Evans features work by Stu Katz on vibes and kalimba, Lenny Druss on flutes, and Cash McCall on guitar – all in a groove that's really a precursor to the Earth Wind & Fire generation of the Chicago scene! Titles include the amazing break "The Moving Finger" – worth the price of the album alone – plus "Dust", "Joyful Grass & Grape", "Heaven & Hell", "Wax & Wane", "Shadow Shapes", "For Some When Young", "Myself When Young", and "Drink".

One of the most obscure releases by this already-obscure singer – a smooth bit of modern soul tracks with an 80s groove on the more uptempo numbers. As usual, Keith is better on the sweeter tunes and the ballads – where his church-inspired vocals really have more room to roam. The best of these on the album are "Tell Me This Ain't Heaven" and "Foolish Hearts", both strong mellow numbers. Other tracks include "In The Light", "Just As I Am", "Coming On To You", and "Move A Little Closer". LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny CashNow Here's Johnny Cash ... LP
Sun/Sundazed, 1961. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.99
A top shelf early 60s dip by Sun Records into their Johnny Cash archives of the mid-to-late 50s – beautiful stuff that features the first appearance on LP of some of the great early singles in the rock solid, raw style that made the Cash name – as well is some rollicking pre-Columbia gems that hint at more diverse styles to come during that period! Those include tunes like "Down The Street To 301" with some really cool piano in harmony backing vocals – which augment rough-hewn Cash style rather than varnish it up – and the whole thing is great! Includes "Hey Porter", "Cry, Cry, Cry", "My Treasure", "Home Of The Blues", "Story Of A Broken Heart", "So Doggone Lonesome", "Port Of Lonely Hearts", "Life Goes On", "Sugar Time" and "You're The Nearest Thing To Heaven". 12 in all.

Alice ClarkComplete Studio Recordings (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Mainstream/BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $19.99
The great self-titled Alice Clark LP on Mainstream plus earlier singles for Warner Brothers and unreleased tracks – the complete studio recordings from '68-72 – in one great set! There weren't many vocal albums on the Mainstream label during the early 70s, and this rare soul side is a real overlooked gem! Alice Clark has a rich soulful voice, with a style that sounds a bit like Esther Marrow, mixed with some of the lead vocalists in Voices Of East Harlem – a really right-on sort of sound that's totally great, and way hipper than most 70s chart soul! Arrangements are by Ernie Wilkins, who brings in a touch of jazz – but again, with a much hipper feel than most of his other backings – and most of the tracks are quite obscure, well-written tunes – of the sort of material you might expect to hear sung by Gil Scott-Heron or Donny Hathaway. Includes "Don't You Care", "Charms Of The Arms Of Love", "Maybe This Time", "Looking At Life", "Hey Girl", "Don't Wonder Why", "It Takes Too Long To Learn To Live Alone", "Hard Hard Promises" and the rest from the classic and always sought self-titled album from 1972 – plus great earlier Warner Brothers singles "You Hit Me (Right Where It Hurts Me)" and "Heaven's Will (Must Be Obeyed)" from 1969, and the previously unreleased "Before Her Time".

A record that really has Natalie Cole finding her groove – not needing any help from her famous familial legacy, thank you – and instead stepping out with a tight, proud mode that really helped refine the sound of female soul in the 70s! The album's got plenty of influences from the Chicago soul scene – including songwriting and production from the team of Chuck Jackson and Marvin Yancy – and work from key session players like Richard Evans and Gene Barge, who worked in the Curtom Studios to craft the grooves on the set! Titles include "Keep Smiling", "Mr. Melody", "Heaven Is With You", "Can We Get Together", "Touch Me", "Hard To Get Along", and "Good Morning Heartache" LP, Vinyl record album

A later winner from The Dells – a record that has the group mixing uptempo grooves and sublime mellow numbers – all of which are sung with heartbreaking vocals that show the group as still one of the best in soul music – even after more than 20 years on record! Arrangements are by Tom Tom 84 and Sonny Sanders, and production by Carl Davis and Eugene Record – all key factors in the success of the album, thanks to a long local history with the Chicago soul legends – and a respect that's very clear in their handling of the sound on this set. Titles include "Happy Song", "It Took A Woman Like You", "Whatever Turns You On", "Ain't It A Shame", "Stay In My Corner", "Is It It", and "Heaven's Just Step Away". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Coke EscovedoCoke ... LP
Mercury, 1975. Very Good+ ... $8.99
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".

Frankie Goes To HollywoodWelcome To the Pleasuredome ... LP
ZTT/Island, 1984. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $9.99
Arguably one of the greatest concept albums of the 80s – and the only really strong full length album cut by Frankie Goes To Hollywood! At the time of the set, the group was riding high on the success and controversy of their singles "Relax" and "Two Tribes" – but in the ambitious ZTT mode, sought to expand their sound way past familiar hits, and into a realm of sonic exploration that rivaled that of labelmates Art Of Noise. Don't get us wrong, because the Frankie of this album is still very much in groove-oriented territory – but they also let Horn take over with some more striking tunes that are both longer and shorter than the usual pop track – offsetting the vocal numbers on the record with a rich tapestry of musical backdrops that also more firmly forward the group's social and sexual leanings. The album features surprising covers of "War", "Do You Know The Way To San Jose", and "Born To Run" – plus the hits "Relax" and "Two Tribes", and the original numbers "Welcome To the Pleasure Dome", "Krisco Kisses", "The Ballad Of 32", "Wish The Lads Were Here", "Black Night White Light", "The Only Star In Heaven", "The Power Of Love", and "Bang".

Aretha FranklinRunnin' Out Of Fools/Take It Like You Give It ... LP
Columbia, 1964. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $5.99
A 2-fer combining 2 of Aretha's better LP's for Columbia. Runnin' Out Of Fools isn't as deep as her later albums for Atlantic, but as an early session for Columbia it's a nice reminder of how good an interpreter of songs Aretha was – whatever the songs, and whatever the setting. She sings with some large arrangements by Belford Hendricks, and performs a mix of soul, pop, and jazz tracks that includes "Walk On By", "How Glad I Am", "I Can't Wait Until I See My Baby's Face", "Runnin' Out Of Fools", and "One Room Paradise". Aretha belts it out nicely on Take It Like You Give It– one of the few Columbia albums to really put a bit more soul in the arrangement, thanks to help from Clyde Otis and Belford Hendricks, who'd done some fine work over at Mercury, in a similar classy soul-drenched style. Titles include "A Little Bit Of Soul", "Only The One You Love", "Deeper", "Remember Me", "Land Of Dreams", "Lee Cross", "I May Never Get To Heaven", and "Take It Like You Give It".

One of the rarest albums you'll ever find by Curtis Fuller – a sweetly modern set that's right up there with his Blue Note LPs! Arrangements on the set are by Benny Golson and Gigi Gryce – and the record's got the feel of some of their great work from the same time – soulful, grooving, but with one ear towards higher ideas and the future of modern jazz! The group includes Lee Morgan on trumpet, Hank Mobley on tenor, Tommy Flanagan on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums – a cracker of a lineup, working here with Blue Note-like intensity. The record's a great one, with 2 original tracks – "Bit Of Heaven" and "Down Home" – and versions of "CTA", "Bongo Pop", and "I Wonder Where Our Love Has Gone". LP, Vinyl record album

Tord GustavsenWhat Was Said (180 gram pressing with download) ... LP
ECM (Germany), 2016. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $21.99 35.98
A jazz vocal set, but one that offers up a very different version of the format – as the dark vision of pianist Tord Gustavsen is shaped here by singer Simin Tander – who can move between sweet moments, poetic passages, and some much moodier moments! The tunes include a fair bit of numbers from both traditional and global sources, but the presentation is very modern, and very effective – with Gustavsen setting the scene on piano, plus a bit of bass and electronics, and very gentle, spare drums from Jarle Vespestad – while Tander lets the songs slowly flower, seeding lyrics amidst the piano notes – with a gentle blending of voice and instrumentation that's not unlike some of the spare sessions that Karin Krog cut with John Surman, although with a style here that's very much its own. Titles include "Sweet Melting", "A Castle In Heaven", "Imagine The Fog Disappearing", "I See You", "Your Grief", and "Sweet Morning Afterglow". LP, Vinyl record album

The set was recorded hot on the heels of the massive Hutson and Hutson II albums – and is done in a very similar style – with Leroy pushing 70s mellow soul to new heights through his masterful vocals, arrangements, and production. The album's incredibly polished, but never slick – a brilliant statement of soul that's gentle one moment, forceful the next – and always proud and powerful. Titles include "Closer to The Source", "Heaven Right Here On Earth", "Get To This (You'll Get To Me)", "You're A Winner", "Everbody's A Masterpiece", and "Where Did Love Go". LP, Vinyl record album

VIP, 1970. Very Good+ ... $24.99

The album was cut for Motown's VIP subsidiary, during a time when Chuck was experimenting with a slightly southern style – a bit in the mode of Solomon Burke or Brook Benton, but with a lighter touch, as you'd guess from Chuck's earlier recordings. The format provides a perfect platform for Chuck to open his voice a bit more, melt the ice from his earlier Wand sides, and get into a bit deeper vocal style. Titles include "Baby, I'll Get It", "I Can't Let My Heaven Walk Away", "Let Somebody Love Me", "Two Feet From Happiness", "Just A Little Love", "That's Me Lovin You", and "Have You Heard About The Fool".

Jose JamesNo Beginning No End ... LP
Blue Note, 2013. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $14.99 15.98
A great new chapter in the career of Jose James – and a record that really seems to take his already-amazing vocals to a whole new level! In a relatively short career, Jose's already been turning a lot of heads with his work on other projects, his jazz-based recordings, and his debut for Gilles Peterson's album – yet this Blue Note set may well be his best record to date – and a set that definitely seems to find just the right place for his classic-styled approach to soul music vocals! Backings are mostly live, with a cool small funk group feel – but a bit more laidback too, almost with the jazzy touches you'd hear on some of Gil Scott-Heron's best 70s work, inflected with hipper changes with a 21st Century vibe. The whole thing's great – as important to Blue Note's move into soul as the Robert Glasper Experiment album – and titles include "Vanguard", "Heaven On The Ground", "Come To My Door", "Trouble", "Sword & Gun", and "It's All Over Your Body".

A bit less jazz than some of Julie Kelly's other work from the 80s, but still pretty great overall – that kind of California record from the time that doesn't really care if it charts at all – content on its own just to offer a good opportunity to an under-discovered singer! The arrangements here are by Steve Kaplan, who also handles the keyboards – and while jazz is certainly at the core of some tunes, Kelly's also a bit more soul/pop focused at other moments. Titles include "All Blues", "River", "A Face Like Yours", "I'm Gonna Lock My Heart", "Heaven", "Never Let Me Go", and "Never Really Knowing Why". LP, Vinyl record album

Led ZeppelinLed Zeppelin IV (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Atlantic, 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $22.99 24.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Beautiful pressing – heavy vinyl, heavy cover, and maybe even more solid than the original!)
