Schoolly DSaturday Night! - The Album (Jive pressing) ... LP
Jive, 1987. Sealed ... $11.99
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. Very Good+ 2LP ... $1.99
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.)

✨✧ Billy OceanSuddenly ... LP
Jive, 1984. Very Good ... $0.99
The album that made Billy Ocean a superstar for a little while, one that had a HUGE couple of years on the charts, even longer service as a snapshot of its era, and is now one that we can look at freshly and appreciate for all of the unstoppably catchy pop soul craft that made it so massive in the first place! Billy's earlier Caribbean inflected pop and R&B was good stuff that deserved a bigger audience and boy did it ever find him with the mid 80s hits "Caribbean Queen", the killer ballad "Suddenly" and the crazy fun "Loverboy". Other tracks include "Mystery Lady", "Lucky Man", "Dancefloor" and "If I Should Lose You". LP, Vinyl record album

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".

✨✧ Kool Moe DeeHow Ya Like Me Now ... LP
Jive, 1987. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Kool Moe Dee's second album – a benchmark moment in mid-to-late 80s solo rap – and definitely worth a post millennium revisit! The title cut is a prime relic of the Kool Moe Dee vs. LL Cool J battles back in the day, and that along with "Wild Wild West" are bonafide classic cuts – but the a lot of the lesser remembered tracks here are ultimately just as nice. Even though it's only his second album, Moe was a block rockin' veteren by this point, with an MC pedigree stretching back to Treacherous Three, and is probably his sharpest point. Other tracks include "Suckers", "Way Way Back", "No Respect", "Don't Dance", "I'm A Player" and "Get Paid". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a cut corner.)

Classic quiet storm material from Glenn Jones – smooth, mellow, with a snaking drum machine laying down the groove on most of the cuts, hitting hard with splashy beats that envelop Glenn's sweet lyrical approach. Titles include "All I Need To Know", "Oh Girl", "That Night Mood", "Living In The Limelight", "At Last", "We've Only Just Begun", and "It's All In The Game". Lots of classics given the 80s slow jam treatment! LP, Vinyl record album

Count BasieCount Basie & His Orchestra (10 inch LP) ... LP
Mercury, Early 50s. Very Good- ... $24.99
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

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.)

Quincy JonesNdeda ... LP
Mercury, 1972. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $5.99
Despite the fact that this album's got an African-sounding name, and features a painting of Quincy in tribal garb, the album's actually a compilation of his 60's stuff for Mercury – which was not very Afro-funky, but which is still pretty darn groovy! The record's got his stunning cut "Soul Bossa Nova" (as used in Austin Powers!), plus lots of other groovy groovy stuff like "Jive Samba", "Lalo's Bossa Nova", "Rack 'em Up", "Harlem Drive", and "Gravy Waltz". Very nice stuff, and a great batch of material you can't find easily. LP, Vinyl record album

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.)

✨✧ Miles DavisNefertiti ... LP
Columbia, 1967. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
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 light wear and some peeling paper on the spine.)

✨✧ Nat AdderleyAutobiography ... LP
Atlantic, 1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A gem of a record from Nat Adderley – filled with short soulful groovers, and done with an upbeat vibe that rivals some of Cannonball's best of the 60s! Joe Zawinul handled the arrangements, so there's definitely a strong influence here from the Cannon group – and although the players shift a bit throughout the course of the set, there's a really unified feel – thanks to a top-shelf lineup that includes Seldon Powell on tenor and flute, Ernie Royal on trumpet, Benny Powell on bass trombone, and Willie Bobo on percussion! The set features all original material by Nat – with older gems and new favorites that include "Little Boy With The Sad Eyes", "Never Say Yes, "Jive Samba", "Stony Island", "Junkanoo", and "Work Song". LP, Vinyl record album
(Green & blue label pressing. Cover has a bit of pen on the back.)

✨✧ Charles KynardYour Mama Don't Dance ... LP
Mainstream, 1973. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Funky organ and plenty of vamping – a really tight little set from the mighty Charles Kynard – who's working here with a really wide-ranging command of the keyboard! As with some of the other Mainstream Records sessions of the time, the backings here are somewhat full – arranged and conducted by Richard Fritz with a style that's almost soundtrack funk at points, but which still has a more jazzy feel overall – thanks to the space given to Kynard's organ solos, and to backings from players who include George Bohannon on trombone, Arthur Adams on guitar, and Paul Humphrey on drums. The set features a surprising cover of Joe Quarterman's classic "I Got So Much Trouble On My Mind" – one that's almost as funky as the vocal original – plus "The World Is A Ghetto", "Superstition", "Zambezi", "Summer Breeze", "Momma Jive", and "You've Got It Bad Girl".

✨✧ Lord BuckleyBest Of Lord Buckley (Elektra) ... LP
Elektra, 1951/Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A late 60's issue of Lord Buckley's rare early recordings for the Vaya label in LA – groundbreaking sides that predated most comedy albums, and which also had a huge influence on the spoken word recordings of the beat generation! The tracks were recorded live, with Buckley talking in a mixture of jive and gibberish that may well have marked him as the first true hipster on record – and which also puts him in a lineage that's somewhere between Slim Gaillard and Babs Gonzales. Titles include "The Nazz", "Jonah And The Whale", "Nero", "Gettysburg Address", "Marc Antony's", and "Funeral Notation" LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear.)

✨✧ Herbie MannLatin Mann – Afro To Bossa To Blues ... LP
Columbia, 1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An excellent album of Latin material from Herbie Mann – and proof that he's equally great in just about any setting! The album's a rare Columbia Records outing from Herbie – but it's easily one of his greatest of the 60s, thanks to some really smoking arrangements from Oliver Nelson – plus an all-star cast of players that includes Carmell Jones, Dave Pike, Jimmy Heath, Patato Valdez, Willie Bobo, Charlie Palmieri, and a young Chick Corea on piano! Tracks are short, tight, and very rhythmic – grooving in a snapping approach to Latin that's filled with plenty of soul, but which also features plenty of jazzy touches as well. A few tunes here are familiar, but they're given wonderful new treatment by Herbie and Nelson – and the record easily beats most Verve or Impulse sessions of this type at their own game! Tracks include "Bijou", "Ave Maria Morena", "Watermelon Man", "Interlude", "Let's Boom Chitty Boom", "Senor Blues", "Jungle Fantasy", and "Jive Samba". LP, Vinyl record album
(360 Sound stereo pressing.)

✨✧ 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
(Cover has some light wear.)

We're not ashamed to admit we're big fans of Queen around here, and why shouldn't we be? 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".

✨✧ Quincy JonesQuincy Jones Plays Hip Hits ... LP
Mercury, 1963. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of Quincy Jones' best for Mercury Records in the 60s – a very groovy record that was done with a feel that's somewhere in between his Big Band Bossa album and his best 60s soundtrack work! The format is simple – Quincy picks a sweet batch of jazz semi-hits from the early 60s, plays them with a nice mix of soul jazz arrangements, and works with a great ensemble filled with wonderful players – including Roland Kirk, Budd Johnson, Seldon Powell, James Moody, and Jerome Richardson on reeds; Lalo Schifrin and Patti Brown on piano, Jim Hall on guitar, Clark Terry on trumpet, and Melba Liston on trombone – plus lots of great percussion at the bottom, helping bring some Latin energy to the grooves at points. Tunes are familiar, but all given a great Quincy Jones twist – and titles include "Gravy Waltz", "Jive Samba", "Walk On The Wild Side", "Bossa Nova USA", and "Watermelon Man". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label mono pressing with deep groove.)

✨✧ Thad Jones & Mel LewisCentral Park North ... LP
Solid State, 1969. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Excellent work from the team of Thad Jones and Mel Lewis – arguably one of their best albums from the late 60s, and a set that's got some really great funky big band numbers! There's a nice bouncing groove to the group that they normally don't have – possibly because Richard Davis is playing some Fender bass on the set, which brings in a nice focus on the bottom end – and the best numbers have a sock-soul feel that's in the best late 60s large group soul jazz mode! Titles include "Tow Away Zone", "Jive Samba", "The Groove Merchant", and "Central Park North". LP, Vinyl record album
