✨✧ VariousOne-Der-Ful Collection – Mar-V-Lus Records ... LP
One Der Ful/Secret Stash, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
One of the coolest labels on the Chicago soul scene of the 60s – part of the larger One-Der-Ful family of imprints, and equally important as the flagship company! Mar-V-Lus cut some of the hippest work in the Windy City at the time – deeply soulful singles that were really at the cusp of the scene, and which also had a fair bit of funk in the mix as well – the grittier side of Chicago soul that really represented the true sound of the underground! And although some of the Mar-V-Lus label material has been reissued over the years, this package uncovers 10 never-issued tracks, and mixes them with 15 more gems that only ever came out as rare indie singles – making for over two dozen Chicago soul treasures, packaged here with a very detailed set of notes. The package is another great step in this six-volume series – and completely essential listening, even to long-trained Chicago soul ears like ours! Unreleased tracks include "For You My Love" by Josephine Taylor, "Sad Souvenirs" by The Ulti-mations, "I Feel Good All Over" by Baby Miracles, "I Want A Man" by Josephine Taylor, "If You Need Me" by The Du-Ettes, "Sweatin" by Alvin Cash, "Stop Call The Cop" by The Du-Ettes, and "Your Love Picks Me Up" by Josephine Taylor – and other titles include "Love Is A Good Thing Goin" by The Blenders, "Don't Turn Your Back On Me" by Johnny Sayles, "I Still Can't Get You" by Joseph Moore, "Joey" by The Young Folk, "Philly Freeze" by Alvin Cash, "You're Gonna Be Sorry" by Cicero Blake, "Would I Do It Over" by The Ulti-mations, "Lonely Girl" by Miss Madeline, and "Whole Lot Of Lovin" by Johnny Sayles.

✨✧ VariousOne-Der-Ful Collection – Halo Records (with download) ... LP
One Der Ful/Secret Stash, 1960s. New Copy 2 LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A really unique side of the legendary One-Derful family of Chicago soul music labels – the tiny Halo imprint, where the company issued all of their incredible gospel music! The Halo sound is like a deep soul take on the other One-Derful/Mar-V-Lus material – cut at the same time, in a similar scene, often with the same studio talent too – but tuned towards styles that are more righteous and more mellow than some of the more upbeat soul on the bigger labels – a heady brew of Chicago roots and heavenly inspiration, served up here in one mighty nice set! As with the others in the series, there's a number of cuts here that were never issued at the time – which makes this collection way more than just a "best of" the label – and instead more of an archival package, especially given the huge booklet of notes that comes along with the whole thing. A beautiful look at this under-exposed side of the Chicago 60s scene – with titles that include "Why Can't We Love Our Fellowman" by The Golden Tones, "Send Your Cleansing Power" by The Gospel Ambassadors, "Lord Deliver Me" by The Original Ensemble, "Why Do Men Treat The Lord As They Do" by The Redemption Harmonizers, "Man In The City (parts 1 & 2)" by The Lucy Rogers Singers, "Lord I Will Never Forget" by Rev Lofton & The Holy Travelers, "Keep Movin Along" by The Daytonians, and "I Have Made A Change" by The Flying Clouds Of Joy. LP, Vinyl record album

Chick Corea & Return To ForeverLight As A Feather ... LP
Polygram, 1972. Very Good ... $3.99
A classic bit of jazzy fusion from Chick Corea and the legendary Return To Forever group that included Flora Purim and Airto! The sound of the album influenced a generation, and although the album was overlooked by groovers for years, partly due to its success, it still sounds surprisingly fresh – skipping along with an amazing mix of fusion, Brazilian rhythms, and free-thinking solos! The album's overflowing with great-grooving goodies – and titles include the great original version of "Captain Marvel", plus "Light As A Feather", "Spain", and "500 Miles High".

✨✧ La LupeLa Lupe's Era ... LP
Tico, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $28.99
One of Lupe's best from the 60s – a hard-driving session with loads of uptempo numbers, and some great heavy salsa arrangements by Hector DeLeon! Gone are some of the overdone numbers of other albums, and in their place are some highly percussive jammers that really keep the groove going strong. Titles include "Guantamera La Virgen De Guadalupe", "Jala Jala", "Bembe Pata Pata", "El Hijo Sin Nombre", and "Solfeo De Ave Maria" – plus a Spanish version of the hit "You Don't Know How Glad I Am".

✨✧ Brian Auger's Oblivion ExpressLive Oblivion Vol 2 ... LP
RCA, 1974. Very Good- 2LP Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
The second smoking Live Oblivion set from Brian Auger and crew – twice as long, and maybe even twice as funky as the first! The tunes on here all really push the ten minute mark – stretching out the original Auger conception on studio sides, and featuring plenty of room for really wicked solo work on organ and electric piano! The live setting seems to inspire the group to even greater new heights – and there's an intensity here that makes for some really great moments. Titles include the wonderful break-heavy version of "Compared To What" – plus "Second Wind", "Maiden Voyage", "Straight Ahead", "Freedom Jazz Dance", and "Inner City Blues". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some splitting in the seams)

Harvey Averne DozenViva Soul ... LP
Atlantic, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $10.99
A wicked album of Latin Soul tunes – recorded by Harvey Averne, one of the heaviest hitting producers of the New York scene of the late 60s! The album's one of the few that Harvey issued under his own name, and it features him on piano and vibes, working with arrangements by Marty Sheller, and a tight batch of studio players who cook up the grooves in a classic Fania/Tico style! The album's got some very groovy originals – like "The Micro Mini", "You're No Good", "My Dream", and "You Mess My Mind Up" – plus some sweet little covers, like "The Think Drink Theme", "The Word", and "Wishing & Hoping" – all of which come off like some of Willie Bobo's best work of the time!

Chet BakerLove For Sale – Live At The Rising Sun Celebrity Jazz Club (180 gram pressing) (2016 Black Friday Release) ... LP
Justin Time, 1978. New Copy 2 LPs Gatefold ... $26.99
A sweet set by Chet Baker and a great group – featuirn Phil Markowitz on piano, Rorger Roseberg on sax, Jon Burr on bass and Jeff Brillinger on drums – live in Montreal in early 1978! Inlcudes a nice long version of the Miles Davis's "Milestones", and equally lengthy and wonderful "Snowbound" and"There Will Never Be Another You", plus "Oh, You Crazy Moon" and of course "Love For Sale". This 2016 vinyl pressing includes 2 bonus remixes of "Love For Sale". LP, Vinyl record album

Jorge BenAfrica Brasil (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Philips/Polysom (Brazil), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
A landmark recording that is one of Jorge Ben's best albums ever! The album is a perfect realization of the way that Jorge mixes Brazilian rhythms with choppy Afro grooves – and the result is a masterpiece that yeilded some of his biggest tracks ever. Included here is the great choppy funk track "Ponta De Lanca", plus loads of other goodies like "O Filosofo", "Xica Da Silva", "A Historia De Jorge", and a great remake of "Taj Mahal" – probably his greatest cut ever. Great all the way through – and is a perfect introduction to Jorge Ben if you don't know his work, and an essential addition to your collection if you do! LP, Vinyl record album

Black IvoryFeel It ... LP
Buddah, 1975. Very Good ... $9.99
Sweet mellow soul meets the burgeoning east coast club soul sound – and the results are incredible! Leroy Burgess arranged the rhythms and Patrick Adams arranged the strings and horns – both masterfully – but it's this warm, emotionally resonant and supremely soulful Black Ivory vocal arrangements that shoot this one so high into the stratosphere. Feel It was the first album in a few years from the group, marking a bit of transition in styles from the earlier, more ballad-heavy approach, but it carries that genuinely emotional vibe really, really well. An album we've always dug, but love even more after revisiting it – we think you'll love it, too! Includes the vocal and instrumental versions of "Daily News", plus the cuts "Warm Inside", "Feel It", "Will We Ever Come Together", "You're What's Been Missing From My Life", "Love, Won't You Stay" and "All In A Day's Love". LP, Vinyl record album
(Missing the lyric insert. Cover has wear, a split top seam, center split spine and a promo sticker in the bottom left corner.)

David BowieZiggy Stardust & The Spiders From Mars – Motion Picture Soundtrack ... LP
Parlophone, 1973. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $29.99 31.98
A great package that includes the "final" concert by David Bowie's Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars persona – recorded at London's Hammersmith Odeon in 1973, and pulled from the soundtrack to the DA Pennebaker film of the same name! The original film featured Bowie, Mick Ronson, and the rest of the Spiders jamming their way through the guitar-heavy tunes of the Ziggy era, plus a few choice bits from earlier years. Titles include "Ziggy Stardust", "Watch That Man", "Wild Eyed Boy From Freecloud", "All The Young Dudes", "Oh You Pretty Things", "Moonage Daydream", "Changes", "My Death", and "Hang Onto Yourself".

✨✧ Marion BrownThree For Shepp ... LP
Impulse, 1966. Very Good- Gatefold ... $16.99
An unbelievable recording! As Archie Shepp made his first album for Impulse a tribute to Coltrane, Marion Brown made his a tribute to Shepp – a wonderful lineage of avant talent in the 60s, stated boldly here, given Brown's amazing talent on the record! The album's filled with hard, soulful playing that goes out, but never too far – like Shepp in his best sixties moments – and Brown's working with a great lineup of players that includes Grachan Moncur on trombone, Beaver Harris on drums, and Stanley Cowell on piano! The tunes include three Marion Brown originals on side one, plus three tracks by Shepp on side two. "Spooks" alone will leave you loving this album for years to come – and other tracks include "West India", "Delicado", "New Blue", and "Fortunato". A brilliant blend of 60s "new thing" playing and 70s underground jazz! LP, Vinyl record album

CityNow That Everything's Been Said ... LP
Ode/Light In The Attic, 1968. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $13.99 19.98
A wonderful early project from Carole King – work that predates her well-known solo career of the 70s, and which is infinitely hipper overall! The groove here is a blend of the soulful roots that Carole was crafting for other artists on her compositions of the 60s – mixed with some of the hipper singer-songwriter modes of the late 60s – put together at a level that still quite far from cliches that would later mar the genre. The group's a trio – with Carole on piano and vocals, Danny Kootch Kortchmar on guitar and added vocals, and Charles Larkey on bass – and the overall feel is somewhere in the neighborhood of Roger Nichols & The Small Circle Of Friends, with a similar sense of freshness that would hardly be replicated again. Lou Adler did some great production on the record – and tracks include the group's great version of "Snow Queen", plus "Why Are You Leaving", "I Don't Believe It", "All My Time", "Victim Of Circumstance", "Now That Everything's Been Said", and "Man Without A Dream". LP, Vinyl record album
(Great reissue – gatefold, with bonus notes, and a sweet tip-on jacket!)

Otis ClayTrying To Live My Life Without You ... LP
Hi Records, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $8.99 15.99
Quite possibly the most successful record Otis Clay ever cut – and a wonderful little set that recasts his bluesy Chicago vocals with a sweeter Memphis soul approach! Willie Mitchell is very firmly in the house for the record – and the approach he uses here with Otis is similar to that he used with Al Green on his biggest hits – slow-burning, slinkily soulful – in a way that infuses older modes of singing with a new level of sophistication and adult appeal! Backing is by the Memphis Horns – shimmering nicely in a trademark Hi sort of way – and titles include the classic "Trying To Live My Life Without You", plus "I Love You, I Need You", "Holding Onto A Dying Love", "I Die A Little Each Day", and "That's How It Is".

Bill CosbyBill Cosby Presents Badfoot Brown & The Bunions Bradford Funeral Marching Band (Sussex) ... LP
Sussex, 1972. Very Good+ ... $24.99
A great album of funky grooves put together by Bill Cosby, and featuring some of his funky friends from LA, like Stu Gardner, Gildo Mahones, Mel Brown, Willie Bobo, Monk Montgomery, and Paul Humphrey! The set's not to be confused with the similarly titled album on Uni – but is equally great – and it features 3 looooong funky tracks – "Abuse", "The Blues", and "Bunions" – all with a lot of silliness, plus two shorter ones, including "I Love You Camille", written for his wife to stop her getting mad at all of his philandering!

✨✧ Miles DavisBitches Brew ... LP
Columbia, 1969. Very Good 2 LP Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
One of the few cases in jazz where an oft-played classic still resonates with power! The record itself is a key cap to Miles Davis' already-groundbreaking years of the 60s – a bold step forward, not just for his nascent electric sound, but also for jazz in general – and the benchmark by which so many other records would be judged (and fail) in years to come! The double-length set makes full use of all four sides of the record – expanding the flow (as well as the lineup) of the original Davis modal vision – and using all players to amazing effect, so much so that most players here turn out some of their best recorded work ever! The lineup is virtually a whose who for the sound of fusion in the 70s – including Wayne Shorter on soprano sax, Bennie Maupin on bass clarinet, Joe Zawinul and Chick Corea on keyboards, John McLaughlin on guitar, Dave Holland on bass, and Lenny White and Jack DeJohnette on drums – plus Jumma Santos and Don Alias on added percussion. Titles include "Pharaoh's Dance", "Spanish Key", "Sanctuary", "Bitches Brew", "John McLaughlin", and "Miles Runs the Voodoo Down". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Miles DavisDig ... LP
Prestige, 1951. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
A key early appearance on record by Sonny Rollins – recorded here with Miles Davis and Jackie McLean in the landmark Dig session! The album's the stuff that 50s bop dreams are made of – a session that has up-and-coming modernists working in the new freedom of the long playing record, in a way that allows them to break past the shorter, more urgent sound of the 78rpm single! Rollins is young, but a surprisingly strong voice on the set – and Jackie McLean's alto is incredibly sharp at this point, with strong hints of the genius to come later in the decade. The rest of the lineup includes Walter Bishop on piano, Tommy Potter on bass, and Art Blakey on drums – and tracks include Miles' classic version of "It's Only A Paper Moon", plus "Denial", "Out Of The Blue", "Dig", and "Bluing". LP, Vinyl record album
(50th St NYC pressing, with deep groove & RVG etch, in the grey cover. Vinyl has a small press flaw that clicks at the begining of "Bluing". Cover has a center split on the spine, split bottom seam, and some tears in the back paste-on.)

Bill EvansRe: Person I Knew ... LP
Fantasy, 1974. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Incredibly lovely live work from Bill Evans – material done at the Village Vanguard in the mid 70s, and easily one of his standout performance sessions from the time! There's a confidence here that doesn't show up in every Evans date of this nature – a focused, fluid groove that's really wonderful – spun out in ways that are still quite gentle, but extremely passionate – by a trio that also features Eddie Gomez on bass and Marty Morell on drums. Titles include a great reading of the title cut, "Re: Person I Knew" – plus "Alfie", "Sugar Plum", "TTT", "34 Skidoo", and "Are You All The Things". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Marvin GayeLet's Get It On ... LP
Motown, 1973. Very Good Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
An amazing record that stunned the world almost as much as Marvin's previous effort, What's Going On. Like that one, this album's an amazingly unified batch of tracks – with a visionary message about sex and love that is as honest and bracing as the politics and social commentary of his previous record. The record shows a sexy side of Marvin that would stun fans of his 60s work – very adult, very warm, and very preoccupied with desire and love. In a way, this sort of full-on love fest was a big payoff for all the folks who'd hung onto his simpler expressions of affection in the earlier years – sort of like getting let into the bedroom after spending years on the front porch! The record was produced by both Marvin and Ed Townsend – and the arrangements by David Van DePitte, Rene Hall, and Gene Page are smooth and seductive all the way through. Includes slow jam classics like "You Sure Love To Ball", "Distant Lover", and "Let's Get It On" – plus "Come Get To This", "Just to Keep You Satisfied", and "If I Should Die Tonight".

✨✧ Marvin GayeMPG ... LP
Motown, 1969. Very Good ... $6.99
Great late 60s work from Marvin Gaye – a pre-What's Going On set that still shows him picking up some of the hipper, deeper themes bubbling under at Motown – a bit of the heavier bass and politics of Norman Whitfield camp, touched with some of the sweeter soul from earlier years! The mix is really great, and makes the record a key transitional one in Gaye's years at Motown – a great hint of the deeper styles to come, and proof that even in these earlier years, Marvin was still capable of sounding plenty righteous! Titles include the hit "Too Busy Thinking About My Baby", plus "That's The Way Love Is", "The End Of Our Road", "Seek & You Shall Find", "This Magic Moment", "It's A Bitter Pill To Swallow", "I Got To Get To California", and "It Don't Take Much To Keep Me".

Marvin GayeThat Stubborn Kinda Of Fellow ... LP
Motown, 1963. Sealed ... $13.99
Early genius from Marvin Gaye – a set that's one of his first biggest hit-making albums for Motown, and for good reason too! Gaye's really come a long way here in just a few short years – hitting hard on the album's title hit, with that trademark rasp that would only get stronger and more charming by the end of the 60s. The backings pack a punch too – pure Motown 60s soul all the way through, with backing vocals from Martha & The Vandellas – although Marvin's own lead is more than strong enough on its own! Titles include the big title hit "Stubborn Kind Of Fellow" – plus "Hitch Hike", "Get My Hands On Some Lovin", "It Hurt Me Too", "Pride & Joy", and "Wherever I Lay My Hat" – all written by a young Marvin! LP, Vinyl record album
(Recent 180 gram pressing.)
