✨✧ Schoolly DSaturday Night! - The Album (Jive pressing) ... LP
Jive, 1987. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The classic by Schoolly D – his second album, and the one where he really hits his stride – with profane humor and classic drum machine and oddball sample flavored production! It's almost hard-to-believe nowadays, but the un-PC rhymes were straight up scandalous back in the day – but Schoolly's laidback, charismatic delivery always tempered that language in our minds, and the production sounds fresh to this day. Not everyone agrees with us, but this is definitely one of our favorite favorite hip hop records of the later 80s! Inspired cuts include the title cut, "B-Boy Rhyme and Riddle", "We Get Ill", "Parkside 5-2", "We Get Ill", and the Code Money DJ track, "It's Krack", "Dis Groove Is Bad", "Get N' Paid", "Do It Do It" and the rest LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Willesden DodgersJive Scratch Trax ... LP
Jive, 1983. Used 2LP ... Out Of Stock
Early instrumental electro tracks produced by the Willesden Dodgers. A couple have a sound similar to some of the Whodini and Soul Sonic Force tracks from around that time.. (There isn't any scratching on the tracks – the "Scratch" in the title means the spare production makes the tracks suitable for scratching...) Twelve 5-6 minute tracks, in the 100-120 bpm range. LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cut corner, a mark from price sticker removal, and some moderate wear.)

Jive, 1989. Very Good+ ... $11.99
Maybe not as incredibly raw as the first couple records from Philly's old school legend, but still with some nice moments of early east coast gangster rap and Schoolly's black power take on "knowledge" rhymes, like "Gangster Boogie", "Black Is...", "Education of a Black Man", and "Don't Call Me N_gger".

✨✧ Cannonball AdderleyBest Of Cannonball Adderley (Capitol) ... LP
Capitol, 1960s. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $4.99
A nice collection of some of Cannon's bigger numbers for Capitol in the 60s – most of them longer tracks, some of them recorded live, with a bit of production help from David Axelrod! The grooves are firmly in place – not as tripped out and funky as later years, but a good updating of his early 60s soul jazz approach, handled with that clean Capitol sound. Titles include "Work Song", "Jive Samba", "Why Am I Treated So Bad", "Mercy Mercy Mercy", "Them Dirty Blues", and "Dat Dere". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red label pressing.)

Count BasieCount Basie & His Orchestra (10 inch LP) ... LP
Mercury, Early 50s. Very Good- ... $19.99
An early collaboration between Count Basie and Norman Granz – and a real cooker too! Granz shows some great foresight here – grabbing Basie at a time when his group was just getting its groove back, and really learning how to hit a more modern sound! The set includes some great tenor sax work from Eddie Lockjaw Davis and Paul Quinichette –a nd titles include "Sure Thing", "Jive At Five", "Every Tub", and "New Basie Blues". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some stains, light wear, and a bit of pencil on the back.)

Charlie ByrdBlues For Night People ... LP
Savoy, Late 50s. Very Good- ... $6.99
One of the earthiest albums ever cut by guitarist Charlie Byrd – a session that predates his better-known sides on Riverside and Columbia, and which definitely earns the "blues" in the title! Byrd's working here with his familiar trio of Keeter Betts on bass and Gus Johnson on drums – playing acoustic guitar, but in a way that's nicely laidback, and quite open overall – almost like Tiny Grimes, but a bit less hard-edged overall. Titles include the "Blues For Night People" suite on side one, plus "Blues My Naughtie Sweetie Taught Me", "Blue Prelude", and "Jive At Five". LP, Vinyl record album
(Maroon label pressing with deep groove. Cover has split seams with remnants of stickers.)

Babs GonzalesTales Of Manhattan – The Cool Philosophy Of Babs Gonzales ... LP
Jaro, Late 50s. Very Good- ... $34.99
One of the greatest albums ever by the consummate jazz hipster – Babs Gonzales! Babs was part singer, part poet, and part philosophy – working in a jive-heavy style that was filled with inside jokes on the New York jazz scene of the postwar years – and peopled with odd characters from that scene, including musicians, hustlers, hookers, and small-time crooks. Babs speaks and sings on the set, backed by arrangements from Melba Liston, played by a small combo that includes Kenny Burrell, Peck Morrison, and Roy Haynes. The whole thing's great – one of the best blends of hipster jive and jazz ever – and titles include "Dem Resolution Liars", "The Hat Box Chicks", "Dem Jive New Yorkers", "The Squares", and "The Cool Cat's Philosophy". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing! Cover has some seam splitting.)

Oscar PetersonOscar Peterson Plays Count Basie ... LP
Verve, 1955. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Count Basie taken down a few notches – not in quality, but in terms of the size of the group – as Oscar really opens up some of the Count's standards in a whole new way, by playing them with a stripped-down quartet that features Herb Ellis on guitar, Ray Brown on bass, and Buddy Rich on drums. Given that Rich is working with the Peterson trio, their sound has a bit more bottom than on some other Verve sides from the time – grooving things nicely in a true Basie way, on a set of tunes that includes "Blues For Basie", "Broadway", "Topsy", "One O'Clock Jump", and "Jive At Five". LP, Vinyl record album
(MGM pressing. Cover has some splitting and clear tape on the top seam, a sticker and some residue on front, and some pen on back.)

Buddy RichBuddy Rich Plays & Plays & Plays ... LP
RCA, 1977. Very Good+ ... $5.99
A surprisingly great one from Buddy – full of live, liveliness, and energy – but also coming across with a depth that goes beyond simple Rich big band sounds. The album was handled by producer Norman Schwartz, and looks like it was originally recorded for his Gryphon label, but probably moved to RCA at the last minute – and it's got a solid feel that's mostly got Buddy working in a straight big band mode – searing on solos with players that include Steve Marcus, Bob Mintzer, and Don Menza. The players contribute some really great tracks to the set that push a bit of a funky agenda – but never too much – just enough kick in the rhythm to make things soulful, and inspire the soloists accordingly! Titles include "Time Out", "Tales Of Rhonda Rat", "Ya Gotta Try", "Party Time", "Kong", and "No Jive". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a promo stamp & some light wear.)

✨✧ Cannonball AdderleyJapanese Concerts (Nippon Soul plus unreleased bonus tracks) ... LP
Riverside/Milestone, 1963. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A nice double LP expanding on Cannonball's swingin' Japanese concert set issued as Nippon Soul, adding dates from the same concert tour. Featuring one of Cannonball's best groups from the 60's, with Joe Zawinul on piano, brother Nat on cornet, Sam Jones on bass, and Louis Hayes on drums, and adding Yusef Lateef, who does some excellent reed work on tenor, flute, and oboe – and who's playing at this point with that great mix of soul jazz and out-sounds that he was cooking up at the time. With the half dozen tunes from the original issue, including an excellent 12 minute reading of Lateef's "Brother John", pls "Tengo Tango", "Come Sunday", "The Weaver", "Easy To Love" and "Nippon Soul", plus the additional numbers 'Work Song", "Autumn Leaves", "Dizzy's Business", "Primitivo" and "Jive Samba".

✨✧ Miles DavisNefertiti ... LP
Columbia, 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Dark genius from the always-amazing Miles Davis Quintet of the 60s – a set that's a bit more subtle than some of the group's other efforts, but no less powerful – and virtually a blueprint for countless changes to come in jazz during the next few decades! The interplay of Davis' trumpet, Wayne Shorter's tenor, and Herbie Hancock's piano is worth the price of admission alone – a force that seems to flow of its own direction, pulled three ways equally, but always emerging as a sound greater than its parts. And adding in the subtle pulse of Ron Carter on bass and nearly melodic drums of Tony Williams, the sound is even more incredible – a well-crafted and evocative sound that's far more than jazz! Titles include versions of Herbie's "Riot" and "Madness", Shorter's "Nefertiti" and "Pinocchio", and Williams' "Hand Jive". LP, Vinyl record album
(360 Sound stereo pressing. Cover has a small split on the spine & some wear.)

✨✧ Ebony Rhythm Funk CampaignWatchin' You, Watchin' Me ... LP
Chi Sound/United Artists, 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A perfect example of the old adage that the funkier the band's name is, the less funky their music will be! Not that the group's really that bad or anything – they're just not the all-out party jam you'd expect from an ensemble with "ebony" and "funk" in their name. The groove is more smooth funky soul than anything else, and the record was produced by Carl Davis for his Chi-Sound imprint, and it's got a similar sound to some of the other groups on the label, like Manchild. Tracks include "Jive Du Du", "You Got Me Rushin", "Where You Lead", "Syncopated Madness", and "Watchin You, Watchin Me". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a light mark from sticker removal.)

✨✧ Ohio PlayersSkin Tight ... LP
Mercury, 1974. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great work from the Ohio Players – and proof that moving to a big label could be a good thing for a funky group! This was the band's first album for Mercury – and although one might have the temptation to say that the label cut down the radical funk sound of the trippy Westbound years, the move also taught the band to sharpen up their act, and get out of the repetitive sloppy groove into which they'd been lapsing during the past few years. The record's a lot smoother than earlier work – with a polished funky sound that would soon push the band right up there with Earth Wind & Fire at the top of the soul charts. And although there's familiar funky numbers like "Skin Tight", "Jive Turkey", and "Streakin Cheek To Cheek" – the best moment on the entire album is the wonderful spacey soul number "Heaven Must be Like This", a seven minute mellow groover that's got a sophisticated jazzy soul style, with voices and piano soaring into the heavens, in a way that always still sends chills down our spine! That cut shows the band's tremendous growth – and it's one of their best-ever! LP, Vinyl record album
(Vinyl has a few short clicks on side 1. Cover has some moderate wear.)

One of their biggest LPs, this one hardly needs any introduction from us, with the massive hit "Another One Bites The Dust", that appeals to beat diggers and mullet-headed rockers alike! Also includes 'Dragon Attack", "Play The Game", "Need Your Loving Tonight", "Crazy Little Thing Called Love", 'Rock It (prime jive)", "Don't Try Suicide" and "Sail Away Sweet Sister".

✨✧ RufusRufus Featuring Chaka Khan ... LP
ABC, 1975. Used ... Out Of Stock
Great work by one of the archetypal funky soul bands of the 70s – and a group whose impact is still being felt today! Of course, one of the reasons for that is Chaka Khan's incredible vocals – caught here at a prime early point, and very nicely set against some warm electric keyboards and tight groovy guitars – which provide a groove that's live and spontaneous, and never too forced – just the right kind of energy to work perfectly with her approach to the lyrics, without any of the too-polished modes you'd fine from copycat groups trying to fake a sound like this. Rufus had been with Chaka for years by this point – fusing together a sublime blend of funk, soul, jazz, and rock – a sound they forged woodshedding in Chicago in the early days, let loose in perfect studio territory on the west coast of the 70s. The whole thing's a classic – and titles include "Jive Talking", "Sweet Thing", "Fools Paradise", "Circle", "Everybody Has An Aura", and "On Time". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the cool poster!)
Also available Rufus Featuring Chaka Khan ... CD 9.99
