✨✧ Dizzy Gillespie & Lalo SchifrinUnicorn/Free Ride ... 12-inch
Pablo, 1977. Near Mint- ... $24.99
Excellent jazz funk! Both tracks are pulled from the legendary Free Ride album – a late 70s reunion between Diz and Lalo Schifrin, and a record that stands today with some of the best funky fusion of the 70s. "Unicorn" is amazing, and has this great compressed guitar that sounds totally excellent. "Free Ride" is pretty darn nice, too – and both tracks appear to be extended versions available only on this 12" single. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Lalo SchifrinBullitt – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Warner (UK), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99
Fantastic stuff! In case you don't know it, this is one of Lalo Schifrin's most incredible soundtracks, and it's a stunning mix of jazz, bossa, and groovy grooves. There's lots of cool bubbling electric bass, lilting keyboards, and moody breezy rhythms. Nearly every cut's a winner, and if you like his stuff, we can bet that this will become one of your favorites. The record's darn tough to find, and this reissue is a real treat to have around! Cuts include "Bullitt", "Room 26", "On the Way To San Mateo", and "Shifting Gears". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Lalo SchifrinDissection & Reconstruction Of Music – Marquis De Sade ... LP
Verve, 1966. Very Good Gatefold ... $6.99
The Marquis De Sade never sounded so sweet! For some strange reason, Schifrin decided to pay a musical hommage to De Sade with this one – but fortunately, he's not punishing himself with the subject matter at all, and is sticking to his jazzy bossa guns. The arrangements have a tight Verve mid 60s groove to them – with breakout solos on piano and flute, slightly baroque scoring that mixes strings, harpsichord, and some straighter jazz playing, and a good focus on strong rhythm playing throught. A breezy treat that would make any of us drop a paddle and kick back for a cocktail – if we had the chance! Titles include "Bossa Antique", "The Wig", "Old Laces", "Beneath A Weeping Willow Shade", "Renaissance", and "Troubadour". LP, Vinyl record album

Lalo SchifrinSol Madrid ... LP
MGM, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A pretty darn rare Lalo Schifrin soundtrack – to a lost crime thriller that starred David McCallum, Stella Stevens, and Telly Savalas – all of whom are pictured in a nice collage-type movie painting on the front cover! The tracks run from mellow bossa to fast and jazzy, and the album also includes a few mellower Latin-tinged numbers to set the scene of the action. There's not as much funk as in Schifrin's other scores from the time – but it makes up for it with groovy passages and many great moments that make the album worth seeking out! Titles include "Charanga", "The Golden Trip", "Sol Madrid", "Fiesta", "Adagietto", and "Villanova's Chase". LP, Vinyl record album

Lalo SchifrinThere's A Whole Lalo Schifrin Goin' On ... LP
Dot, 1968. Very Good ... $14.99
A crazy album of funky tracks from Lalo Schifrin – very different than most of his other jazz and bossa work! This set's got some very tripped out styles that mix together funky backings, jazzy riffing, and even some nice electronics – a sweet little groove that's even more wild and hip than even the best of Schifrin's soundtrack work from the 60s! Some tunes certainly show the deft talent for arranging woodwinds and rhythms that first caught the ears of so many listeners on famous soundtracks – but in the setting of this record, away from any directorial needs, Lalo's also free to explore some groovier music ideas – and he really lets loose tremendously as the set rolls on! The titles alone should tell you the feel of the record – with names like "Secret Code", "Dissolving", "Vaccinated Mushrooms", "Wheat Germ Landscapes", and "How To Open at Will The Most Beautiful Window".

Lalo SchifrinTowering Toccata ... LP
CTI, 1977. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $9.99
Electric 70s work from Lalo Schifrin – with a tight uptempo funky sound that's similar to his strong "cop show" soundtrack themes of the time! This album's a pretty great testament to Lalo's durability as one of the great composer arrangers – sublime stuff from the late 70s, and a record that really works nicely alongside Schifrin's music for films. Lalo's got a great crew for the set, too – including Joe Farrell and Jeremy Steig on flute, Eric Gale on guitar, Anthony Jackson on bass, Steve Gadd and Andrew Smith on drums, accompaniment on keys by Chuck Spangler and a host of others! Titles include "Eagles In Love", "Macumba", "Theme From Most Wanted", "Theme From King Kong", and "Roller Coaster". LP, Vinyl record album

Lalo Schifrin/Kenny AscherSerial ... CD
Quartet (Spain), 1980. New Copy 2CD ... $24.99
A double-length release of soundtrack music for early 80s film – with the original Lalo Schifrin score for the movie, and a completely unused additional score by Kenny Asher! Schifrin's in prime territory throughout – perfectly fitting the film's parody of Northern California culture of the 70s with bits of jazz, funk, exotica, and occasional larger orchestrations – all used in these short flourishes with a nice range of instrumentation. The score starts out with a vocal number – "A Changing World" – sung by Michael Johnson, and with a number of instrumental reworks throughout. Next up is the unused score from Kenny Ascher – not just a few tracks, and instead a total of 28 numbers in all – often done in modes that aren't that different from Schifrin's music, but maybe with a smoother sort of AOR polish overall – one that would have fit the images on the screen equally well! As usual with Quartet, the package is wonderful – lots of notes and images, and a total of 58 tracks on 2CDs. CD

A rare oddity – and a surprisingly nice record! Sarah Vaughan sings the words of Pope John Paul II – but set to groovy arrangements by Francy Boland, conducted by Lalo Schifrin!

Lalo SchifrinBlack Widow ... CD
CTI/King (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... About September 4, 2016
Funky 70s work from Lalo – with a bit of a disco twist, and plenty of the electric jazz funk elements that were showing up in his soundtracks at the time! Lalo's on keyboards, playing a cool host of electric ones that give the record a nice spacey sound over the top of the funky arrangements. There's plenty of nice guitar work – either by Eric Gale or John Tropea – which gives the cuts some nice choppy funky bits that drive them a bit harder than you might expect. Includes an amazing funk remake of "Quiet Village", plus "Dragonfly", "Black Widow", "Baia", "Turning Point", and a version of the "Jaws" theme! CD contains 4 bonus tracks too – "Tabu", "Frenesi", "Con Alma", and an alternate take of "Baia". CD

Lalo SchifrinMan On A Swing/President's Analyst ... CD
Quartet (Spain), 1967/1974. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A pair of rare soundtracks by the great Lalo Schifrin – back to back on a single CD! First up is Man On A Swing – an obscure mid-70s murder mystery, given a great deal of depth and class from Schifrin's music – which is often surprisingly jazzy, despite the setting of the film – almost with the care of some excellent late night LA noir, and in the territory of Johnny Mandel for its sensitivity and color, yet still served up with all the Schifrin sense of swing. Titles include "Rosehaven Motel", "Maggie's Theme", "Evelyn Story", "Wills' Trance", and "Forest Finale". Even cooler is Lalo's amazing score for The President's Analyst – a totally groovy soundtrack that was literally our first introduction to his genius, back when we were kids! Schifrin's at his 60s best here – jazzy, groovy, playful, and able to step between so many wonderful styles – from the Brasil 66-ish vocals of "Hey Me", to the playful parody of military themes on other numbers, to some of the sexier tunes that show up as the plot moves on – almost Lalo's remaking of A&M modes to illustrate mainstream America in the late 60s. Titles include "Total Sound", "Hey Me", "The Long Walk", "The Nest", "Sidney's Flight", "Fast Boat To Moscow", "Telephone Trap", and "Sidney Plans Escape". CD

Verve, 1964. Very Good- Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
The great Lalo Schifrin plays piano and leads a crack group of studio players through some larger orchestral material with a nice jazzy feel! The overall approach is similar to Lalo's classic 60s soundtrack work – with nice solos arching out over sweeping strings and orchestral passages, and all tracks written with a good deal of punch, plus lots of little Latiny influences. Easily one of his most perfectly conceived albums of the 60s – and pretty darn tough to find. Tracks are long and titles include "El Salon Mexico", "New Fantasy", "Sabre Dance", and "Prelude #2".

Warner/Rhino, 1973. Used (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A classic to end all classics – and the record that showed the world that the kung fu genre could be every bit as funky as American crime and action films! Lalo Schifrin's at the height of his powers on this set – working in a blend of raw guitars, rolling bass, and choppy rhythms that groove about as fast as Bruce Lee's hands move on the screen in the film – and the album's a real standout in the 70s soundtrack scene, well worth all the hype and attention that's been given to it over the years! The record's one you'll dig if you're a fan of funk, or a student of Schifrin – and even after the passage of decades, it's still a tough soundtrack to beat. Titles include the classic "Theme From Enter The Dragon", plus "Bamboo Bird Cage", "The Monk", "Han's Island", "The Big Battle", and "The Human Fly". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Lalo Schifrin, Don Ellis, Jerry Fielding, & OthersMission Impossible – The Television Scores (6CD set) ... CD
La La Land, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 6CD ... Out Of Stock
An amazing package of music – not just the original two albums of Lalo Schifrin music that were issued from the Mission Impossible TV show – but a massive 6CD collection that brings together work from all seven seasons of the program – a huge amount of material that's never been issued to the public at all, by a range of composers we never even knew worked for the show! Over the years, the spirit of Schifrin's original style was greatly expanded – still with groovy cop and crime modes that mature nicely into the 70s, but also with some richer soundtrack elements that really flesh things out – and which take on special character from show to show, depending on the composers! In addition to material by Schifrin, the set also features passages from jazzy talents who include Jerry Fielding, Don Ellis, Benny Golson, and Duane Tatro – as well as contributions from other soundtrack legends like Gerald Fried, Walter Scharf, Jack Urbont, Robert Drasnin, and Richard Hazard – and the whole thing fetaures six very overstuffed CDs – each almost to the brim with music – in a box with an additional booklet of notes!

Deram, 1970. Near Mint- ... $29.99
An excellent album of funky jazz – arranged and conducted by British organ and sax player Johnny Arnold – but also featuring some incredible work from an assortment of west coast soul jazz players that include Charles Kynard, Curtis Amy, Hadley Caliman, and Vi Redd! As the title kind of implies, the groove's in a swinging soundtrack sort of mode – almost a Lalo Schifrin 60s style, and one that blends together the organ lines with some totally sweet work on vibes, flute, and tenor sax. There's a wonderful Verve-like feel going down here – although in some way, the album's even hipper than anything on Verve from the time!

Elmer Bernstein handled the soundtrack with a really great approach – jazz, swinging, and with plenty of mod 60s bits – very much in some of the same territory as Lalo Schifrin or Hugo Montenegro at the time! And equally great, the record also includes a few great vocal tracks by Vikki Carr – "The Silencers" and "Santiago" – both of which are very groovy numbers that swing with a wonderfully cheesy sort of sound! Other tracks are instrumentals, and titles include include "Tun Tzee", "Tina's Waltz", "Matt Helm's Blues", and "Early To Bed". CD

Roy Budd rises to the groovy occasion and scores some excellent moments that match a light orchestral sound with a throbbing electric bass and percussion underground – in a style that's like Lalo Schifrin's best work from the time. The LP's overflowing with tracks, including a few bonus mixes, and there's even 2 vocal numbers that feature The Three Degrees.

Eric DolphyVintage Dolphy ... CD
GM, 1962/1963. Used ... $8.99
Some of the most striking Eric Dolphy work we've ever heard – a set of live performances from the years 1962 and 1963 that feature Dolphy in a free-thinking mode that surpasses even the modernism of his classic studio sides! The recordings feature Dolphy amidst a variety of players – including a number of unlikely suspects like Barry Galbraith, Eddie Costa, and Jim Hall – and although some of the tracks have a moody and introspective third stream quality (3 of the numbers are written by Gunther Schuller), others are quite open, and almost have an ESP-like intensity. One longer title is a jam session take on Charlie Parker's "Donna Lee" – recorded with a lineup that includes Phil Woods, Nick Travis, Benny Golson, Don Ellis, and Lalo Schifrin! Other titles include "Iron Man", "Half Note Triplets", "Densities", and "Night Music". CD

Taboo, 1997. Used ... $6.99
Better than you might think – and a sparkling selection of recent exotica work that's very much in the best tradition of Martin Denny or Les Baxter, but which also goes far beyond that style, into a wealth of groovy modes that also hits some great 60s soundtrack moments! The first few tunes are very much in a late 50s Capitol/Liberty mode – but as the album progresses, it hits a style that's much more than you'd expect from the exotic cover – kind of a blend of Lalo Schifrin-type grooves with some bossa and 60s LA jazz influences. The album's got some killer percussion by Carlinhos De Oliveira, and solid jazz basis to some of the playing on the best tracks – a feature that takes the record way past the simple retro mode that usually ruins a project of this nature. Titles include "Exotica 97", "Close Your Eyes", "Hot Like Lava", "Barbi In Bali", "Clutch Cargo Cult", "Da T'ing He Grow", and "Itchy Palms". CD

One of the last albums that Stan Getz ever cut with larger arrangements – a surprisingly nice late 70s session that features backings from Lalo Schifrin! Most of the tunes on the set are Schifrin originals (save for one dodgy number from Evita!) – done in a sweetly flowing soundtracky style that works perfectly with Stan's breezy horn – as Getz stretches out beautifully over the bigger charts, recalling earlier experiments of this type done on Verve – including one album with Schifrin. Instrumentation's got some light Latin touches – but mostly in a fuller orchestral mode, with percussion sneaking out of the strings – and titles include "Children Of The World", "Livin It Up", "Street Tattoo", "Around The Day In Eighty Worlds", and "You Me & The Spring".

The sound is super mellow – dreamy, but never sleepy – with Stan blowing in these soulful, magical, exploratory lines that sweep and swirl with his best 60s work. The sound is incredible – a whole new level of genius to a player who'd already recorded in so many other strong modes at the time – and titles include "Sleeping Bee", "Nitetime Street", "Early Autumn", "Charade", "Love", and "Reflections".

Dizzy GillespieComposer's Concepts ... LP
Mercury, Early 60s/1977. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $3.99
Nice 2LP set that brings together some of his most striking sessions of the early 60s recorded for Emarcy. This set includes pieces composed and arranged by Lalo Schifrin played by a large ensemble led by Benny Carter – with Dizzy as the main soloist, and work by players that include James Moody, Phil Woods, Emil Richards, Francisco Aguabella, and Schifrin himself. Tracks are long, and have complicated introductions – then easily give way to the sort of flowing grooves that Schifrin was penning often at the time. Titles include "The Conquerors", "The Chains", "The Swords", "The Empire", and "The Legend Of Atlantis". The set also features Diz playing tracks from Tom McIntosh, one of the scene's brightest arrangers at the time, and a talent who was looming large, thanks to support from folks like Diz and James Moody. Moody's in the group – blowing tenor with a quintet that includes Kenny Barron on piano, Chris White on bass, and Rudy Collins on drums – and his tone is incredible, with a darkness that he'd rarely had before, and the whole group has a mixture of modern tones and soulful grooves that's beyond compare! Titles include "November Afternoon", "The Cup Bearers", "The Day After". Also included are songs from the soundtrack for the lost Shirley Clarke verite drama The Cool World. Mal Waldron wrote the material for the score, and Diz plays the music with a moody emotionality that you don't often hear in his other 60's work. The recording was made by his great group that included Kenny Barron and James Moody, and the titles include "The Pushers", "Duke's Fantasy", "Coney Island", and "Street Music".

A brilliant album of Latiny grooves from Diz! The disc takes off from the soulful/modal mood of the early 60s groups with Lalo Schifrin and Kenny Barron – and features a young Mike Longo crafting some fantastic lines on piano, stretched out over tight rhythms on electric bass and drums, with Dizzy soloing on trumpet, and James Moody adding in washes of color and emotion on alto, tenor, and flute. The best tracks are long groovers that really show the group stretching out – especially on the album's 16 minute reading of Dizzy's classic "Kush", the title track "Swing Low Sweet Cadillac", and a great version of "Mas Que Nada"!

Polydor (Germany), Mid 70s. New Copy 4 CDs ... $36.99
A killer collection of work from one of the funkiest European talents of the 70s – bandleader Peter Herbholzheimer, working here at the head of his Rhythm & Brass group, and his Certain Lions & Tigers ensemble! Although Herbolzheimer's got a clunky name, his sound is incredibly fluid and tight – a large group approach to funk that rivals some of the best American work of his time – including classics from Lalo Schifrin, Johnny Pate, and other key maestros of the blacksploitation era. Peter's got a way of taking a large group of players and really making them groove – a sound that's kind of an electrified extension of the styles first laid out at MPS by the Clarke-Boland Big Band, but served up with a hipper, funkier 70s approach to rhythm. Like the CBBB, Herbholzheimer's groups often feature American players – such as Art Farmer on trumpet or Herb Geller on saxes – alongside more familiar MPS talents like Dusko Goykovich on trumpet, Dieter Reith on organ, Ferdinand Povel on flute, Jiggs Whigham on trombone, and Sigi Schwab on guitar – joined by the legendary Sabu Martinez on a few of the best sessions here! The 4CD set is a massive discovery in music – as it features not only Herbholzheimer's Rhythm & Brass albums, but also records under the group names Certain Lions & Tigers and The Galactic Light Orchestra. The package has some of the same records of the previous MPS collection of Herbholzheimer's work – but also includes some other material too – the full albums Soul Condor, Galaxis, Live Im Onkle Po, Hip Walk, Touchdown, and I Hear Voices CD

Wlodzimierz Korcz07 Zglos Sie ... CD
GAD (Poland), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $16.99
Totally groovy sounds from a top-level Polish cop show in the 70s – one that certainly didn't make it to our screens back in the day, but which definitely had a soundtrack to match some of the best American programs of the time! In fact, the style here is maybe more late 60s/early 70s than the actual dates might imply – with lots of elements that you'd hear in work from Lalo Schifrin, Quincy Jones, and some of their contemporaries – including lots of surprisingly strong jazz elements, mixed in with the fuller orchestrations, funky rhythms, and more electric moments! There's a bit of wordless vocalization at times – but most cuts here are instrumental, and plenty darn great throughout – a real discovery to our American ears – even though the show was one of the biggest Polish TV programs at the time. The CD features a whopping 35 tracks in all, with hefty notes in both Polish and English – and the whole thing may well be one of the grooviest Gad Records projects to date! CD

Antonio (Chocolate) Diaz MenaEso es Latin Jazz . . . Man! ... LP
Audio Fidelity, Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A crackling little set from Latin percussionist Antonio "Chocolate" Mena – not to be confused with the Latin trumpeter who also went by the name of Chocolate! The album's got some wonderfully jazzy numbers – put together with arrangements from Duke Pearson and Lalo Schifrin, and a group that includes Pearson, Richard Williams, Walter Perkins, Seldon Powell, and Jerome Richardson – all of whom make for a session that's equally jazz-based as much as it is Latin-styled – almost in the manner of some of the best Latinesque work on Prestige from the same period. Tracks are short, but very powerful, and titles include "El Pega Joso", "Green Dolphin Street", "Tin Tin Deo", "Kush", "Con Alma", and "Mambo Jazz Opus 7". LP, Vinyl record album

Roger Webb, Pete Moore, & OthersHustlers – Dramatic Music From The Chappell Library 1970 to 1977 ... CD
Chappell/Vocalion (UK), 1970s. New Copy ... $16.99
Dramatic music, but pretty darn groovy music as well – served up here in a set of work from the under-reissued Chappell sound library in the UK! The work here is full of jazzy currents, but often set to tight larger arrangements that have all the best appeal of the sorts of soundtrack material you'd get in 70s TV work – really appealing themes mixed with sharper action moments – served up in this wonderful blend of acoustic and electric instrumentation that easily rivals the best soundtrack material from the time by folks like Lalo Schifrin or Henry Mancini! We'd not heard most of these tunes before, and every one's a winner – in a set list of 23 tracks that include "Sky Diver" by Lee Mason, "The Bright Lights" by Roger Webb, "Countdown" by Cy Payne, "Magazine" by Jack Arel, "Rainbow Bridge" by Roger Webb, "The Sun Seekers" by James Clarke, "Top Gear" by Lee Mason, "Black Fire" by Cy Payne, "Downtown Incident" by Roger Webb, "Black Shadow" by Pete Moore, "Breakaway" by Tony Osborne, and "The Hustlers" by Roger Webb.

✨✧ Bullet/Alan TewHanged Man – Original Television Soundtrack ... LP
Contour, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Nice funky 70s instrumentals, composed by Alan Tew, and performed by the group Bullet – a hip electric combo with a tight sound library feel. The overall style reminds us of Lalo Schifrin or Quincy Jones cop show work from the early 70s – with some tasty keyboards, plenty of riffing, and tight fast rhythmic tunes. The original's rare as hen's teeth, and the record is some of Tew's finest Brit easy work from the time. Titles include "Contract Man", "Killer HIll", "The Heist", "GBH", "Blue Panther", "The Spic", "Funky Bear", and "The Peterman". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Stelvio CiprianiQuel Pomeriggio Maledetto ... CD
Quartet (Spain), 1977. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sweet funky soundtrack work from Stelvio Cipriani – one of the maestro's best late 70s film scores, and one of his grooviest too! The music here has all the sharp, soulful elements of early 70s American soundtracks by Quincy Jones or Lalo Schifrin – complete with wah wah guitar, sweet funky flute, bumping basslines, and even some mighty nice keyboards – all served up without ever pushing things too far over the top – so that the balance of funk, jazz, and more scene-setting elements is perfect – that really sort of special balance you get only on the few best records by Jones or Schifrin. And while Cipriani can sometimes veer towards the more slinky, sexy side of the spectrum, he hardly does so here – as even the mellower moments have a nice subtle sort of groove, and continue the spirit of jazz. CD features 23 tracks in all! CD

✨✧ Dizzy GillespieDizzy On the French Riviera ... LP
Philips, Mid 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
It may have been recorded on the French Riviera – but the session's actually a killer batch of Latiny tinged tracks from Dizzy & Co – with with great arrangements by Lalo Schifrin! There's a wonderful 10 minute version of "Chega De Saudade", done as "No More Blues" to start it out, and it's got a great loping Latin vibe, in the manner of Dizzy's best sides from the 60s. Lalo's on piano, and the great Leo Wright is on flute and alto, with Tzigane Elek Bacsik on guitar, Chris White on bass, Ruby Collins on drums and Pepitoo Riestria on percussion. Other nice ones include "Long Long Summer", "Desafinado", and "Pau De Arara". A great album, and one not to pass up! LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label mono pressing with deep groove. Cover has staining & waviness on the bottom half.)

✨✧ Dizzy GillespieGillespiana/Carnegie Hall Concert ... CD
Verve, Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great burner from Diz – and one that features a large group, long tracks, and some stellar early work from Lalo Schifrin! Schifrin was in Diz's group at the time, playing piano and contributing fantastic Latin-tinged arrangements that gave the band a whole new life. Other players on this session include Candido, Leo Wright, Julius Watkins, and Willie Rodriguez – and the tracks include "Africana", "Blues", and "Panamerica". An incredible live set from Dizzy Gillespie – one that has him working in stunning big band mode, but with all the depth and agility of a small combo! The set features variations on a number of classic Gillespie themes – including "Kush", "Manteca", "Ool Ya Koo", and "Tunisian Fantasy (Night In Tunisia)" – recast with that ever-growing Latin influence that Dizzy was picking up in the 60s, supported strongly by the presence of a young Lalo Schifrin, who plays piano on the set. Horn players include Dizzy, Clark Terry, and Nick Travis on trumpets; Gunter Schuller and Jim Buffington on French Horns; Leo Wright on sax and flute; and Don Butterfield on tuba – supported by rhythm from Schifrin on piano, Art Davis on bass, and Charles Lumpkin on drums. Tunes are awash in soulful solos and deeply colored hues – and titles include "Manteca", "This Is The Way", "Kush", "Ool Ya Koo", and "Tunisian Fantasy". CD

Verve, 1963. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Not much of a cover and title, but a great lost slice of Verve from the early 60s – with Hodges on alto, and Lalo Schifrin on piano and Barry Galbraith on guitar – a pretty groovy group! LP, Vinyl record album
