✨✧ Evelyn KingI'm In Love ... LP
RCA, 1981. Very Good+ ... $4.99
One of the real standouts in Evelyn King's career – a sharply focused album that's filled with catchy 80s styled tunes – and which benefits from some great help from a young Kashif! Lots of the tracks have that great flair for a catchy hook that mark's Evelyn's best work – an approach that's never too slick or too forced, and which has a comfortable way of sliding into a tune. Titles include "I'm In Love", "What Are You Waiting For", "If You Want My Lovin", "I Can't Take It", "The Best Is Yet To Come", and "The Other Side Of Love". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout notch.)

King CurtisHave Tenor Sax Will Blow/Live At Small's Paradise ... CD
Atlantic/Collectables, 1959/1966. Used ... $9.99
Two sides of soulful sax from one of the greatest R&B tenor players of all time! The album Have Tenor Sax was recorded in 1959, when King was a lusty young player just making his mark on the scene, grooving hard with a jazz-based group of players that includes Herman Foster, Al Casey, Belton Evans, and Noble Watts. The tracks are mostly originals – like "Snake Eyes", "The Groove", "Lil Brother", and "Chili" – with the same hard sax-heavy groove as Curtis' early work for other labels. The second set – Live At Small's Paradise – was recorded at the famous Harlem nightclub, with backing by a funky group that includes Paul Griffin, Cornell Dupree, Chuck Rainey, Ray Lucas, and Melvin Latiste. The set features tunes much more in King's Atlantic groove – that is, soulful renditions of pop tracks, plus a few nice originals. Titles include "Philly Dog", "Tough Talk", "Soul Theme", "Something On Your Mind", and "Pots & Pans". 21 cuts in all! CD

KinksMuswell Hillbillies ... LP
RCA/Victor, 1971. Very Good+ ... $19.99
A key transitional album for The Kinks – a record that took them from the lighter "picture postcard" rock of their late 60s albums, into the headier concepts that would mark most of their early 70s work! The concept here is fortunately a light one – a faux-hillbilly sort of groove, carried off by Ray and the group in a nice mix of London Muswell and East Tennessee. The tunes are nicely short and focused, with some older styles of music that almost give the record a Tom Waits-ish feel at times – and titles include "Muswell Hillbilly", "Acute Schizophrenia Paranoia Blues", "20th Century Man", "Skin & Bone", "Alcohol", and "Have A Cuppa Tea". LP, Vinyl record album

Kool & The GangSpirit Of The Boogie ... LP
De-Lite, 1975. Very Good Gatefold ... $11.99
Way more than just a "boogie" album – as you might think from the title – and much more a hard-hitting batch of funky tunes, mixed with some even cooler laidback numbers! The album follows heavily off the style of Wild & Peaceful – mixing together the group's older crack rhythms with some newer, hipper, jazzier inflections – making for an incredibly powerful sound that really opens them up. Titles include the massively funky "Jungle Jazz" – a jazzy follow up to "Jungle Boogie" – plus some spiritual numbers that have a cosmic soul jazzy feel, like the tracks "Cosmic Energy", "Ancestral Ceremony", and "Winter Sadness". The whole thing's great – and other titles include "Mother Earth", "Caribbean Festival", and "Ride The Rhythm". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has a mark from sticker removal.)

Bernie KrauseCitadels Of Mystery (Original Master Recording) ... LP
Mobile Fidelity/Takoma, 1975. Near Mint- ... $13.99
A beautiful little solo record from synthesizer legend Bernie Krause – best known as half of the legendary Beaver & Krause team, but stepping out here on his own after the untimely early death of Paul Beaver. The album was one that was initially conceived with Beaver, but recorded after his death – in a strange blend of synthesizer, keyboards, guitar, and lots of folk and world music influences. The musicians include a number of players who later went onto be instrumental stars of their own in the 80s – like Mark Isham and Andy Narrell – working here in an unusual setting that shows the richness of the Bay Area instrumental scene in the pre-New Age years. Titles include "Festival Of The Sun", "Flight To Urubamba", "Citadel Ay Bobo", "Heights Of Machu Picchu", and "Jambo Jambo". LP, Vinyl record album

Peggy LeeBest Of Miss Peggy Lee ... CD
Capitol, 1940s/1950s/1960s. Used ... $3.99
A great batch of the classic numbers by the one and only Peggy Lee! Peggy had a way of adding a genuine, earthy vibrancy to most of the numbers she ever cut – an emotive, but grounded, and even at turns bluesy quality that made even the sappiest big band orchestrations a real treat! The CD features 16 tracks including "Waiting For The Train To Come In", "I Don't Know Enough About You", "It's All Over Now", "Golden Earrings", "Happiness Is A Thing Called Joe", "Alright, Okay, You Win", "Big Spender", "Fever" and more.

Tom LellisFlow ... CD
Beamtide, 2016. New Copy ... $7.99 15.99
An excellent set from Tom Lellis – a jazz vocalist we've been digging since the 70s – as part of an elite group of really special singers that might include Mark Murphy or Kurt Elling – able to work in a jazzy style that's far more than just delivery of a lyric, with a sense of individuality that's always compelling! This album has Lellis in wonderful form – at a level that rivals all the greatness of his classic records, with a similar commitment to excellent material, and sublime small group presentation of the music – with instrumental energy that really matches his vocal phrasing of the words. Tom plays piano, keyboards, vibes, and guitar – and other musicians include Orlando Valle on flute, Toninho Horta on guitar, Dave Kikoski on piano, and Gary Fisher on piano and keyboards. Titles include a great blending of "Berimbau/Pomba Gira" – plus "Love Comes & Goes", "Tones For Joan's Bones", "Can It Be Done", "Waiting The Day", "Sea Aura", and "The Flow". CD

Jill LeporeSecret History Of Wonder Woman (hardcover) ... Book
Knopf, 2014. New Copy ... $6.99 27.99
A mindblowing look at the story behind the creation of Wonder Woman – a hugely popular comic character, and practically a hero of American folklore – but one who sprang from the mind of a free love and S&M advocate – the pop psychologist and sometime academic William Moulton Marston! Yet the story – the real "secret" part – has far more interesting twists and turns – including surprising ties to groundbreaking figures Emmeline Pankhurst and Margaret Sanger, which helps explain the long-staining feminist influence that the character has had since her creation. The book is far from sensational – as the tale is told with great care and detail by Harvard historian Jill Lepore – and the book presents the information in a really beautiful way, with dozens of photographs and images from the comics interspersed with the text, in order to illustrate the intellectual currents of the material. A rollicking great read, not just for fans of comics – over 400 pages, hardcover, with lots of black and white illustrations. Book

Les Yper SoundExplorations In Drum & Sax (clear vinyl – with download) ... LP
Figure & Ground, 2016. New Copy ... $19.99 21.98
Intergalactic instrumentals from Les Yper Sound – and not the late French 60s psychedelia project of Michel Colombier & Pierre Henry– this one features drummer Miles Artntzen & sax player Jas Walton, with Money Mark & Sinkane! The group has a really unique vibe, rooted strongly the intuitive interplay between drumme rArntzen and Walton – and tripped out from there and in some really cool ways, with far-reaching global funk influences. Plenty of elements reminsicent of Latin, African and Eastern funk, but paired with freewheeling melodic bits and interesting elements galore. Titles include "Step Away", "Woodland", "Paella Bahia", "Ambiguity", "Potato Brain", "Eastern Parkway", "Coffee Etude", "Return To", "RSVP", "Dark Yoga", "Sleep Over" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 500 – on clear vinyl and with download!)

Julie London slinks her way through a batch of tracks that range from sexy to groovy to just plain goofy! This 22 track set brings together a nice amount of stuff that's currently hard-to-find on CD, including many gems from her Liberty years. Titles include "Girl Talk", "Black Coffee", "Night Life", "Blues In the Night", "I Must Have That Man", "Wives & Lovers", "Daddy", "Watermelon Man", "Go Slow", and "Come On-A My House"! CD

Love Live Life + OneLove Will Make A Better You (Japanese pressing) ... CD
King/P-Vine (Japan), 1971. Used ... $9.99
A wild mix of free jazz and fuzzy rock – played by a groundbreaking Japanese group who mix flute and saxes with heavy Hammond and plenty of guitar! The album begins with the side-long "Question Mark" – a tune that breaches a really metaphysical question at the start, then really trips out with some free-jamming instrumentation. Other numbers are a bit more straight – and almost show a soul jazz influence at times – and the accented English language vocals almost make the set come off like some of those European post-beat sides that were a jamming mix of funk, soul, and rock. Titles include "Shadows Of The Mind", "Runnin Free", "Love Will Make A Better You", and "Facts About It All". CD

Creator DIY, 2016. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $28.99 29.99
Spiritual soulfulness from Low Leaf – a debut release on her own CreatorDIY label – really wonderful stuff with a really soaring vibe overall! Low Leaf herself plays harp, keys, synth, guitar, cello, sings and lays down the beats – with guests including similarly adventurous spirits Kadjha Bonet, Mark De Clive-Lowe and others, but Low Leaf's unique vision guides all. "Pace Foreva", "Psychlez", "Dreaming Awake", "Pupil Of The Universe", "It Is Within", "Hoble Coda", "Sun Psalm", "Inlight", "Angel Wash" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

David MaranissOnce In A Great City – A Detroit Story (hardcover) ... Book
Simon & Schuster, 2015. New Copy ... $6.99 32.50
Not just a book on Motown – despite the image of The Supremes on the cover – but a story of Detroit itself – told as a series of intersecting paths that include the famous soul music label, as well as all the manufacturers, cultures, communities, and political forces that were shaping the city in the early 60s. The decline of Detroit has been a story for decades now – but David Maraniss looks at the city in the years before the fall – focusing on 1963, where he shows that tensions were already strong in some sectors, and the ground upon which so much was being built could easily shift and allow the whole thing to topple. The book is one of the most fascinating city portraits we've ever read – with lessons that are still completely essential to the 21st Century urban environment – and the whole thing is 441 pages, hardcover, with some black and white images.

David MatthewsGrand Connection ... CD
Electric Bird/King (Japan), 1983. New Copy ... $12.99
A grand connection from David Matthews – one of the keyboardist's fusion sets for the Japanese Electric Bird label, who gave Matthews a great showcase for his electric grooves in the 80s! The sound here is kind of an extension of the funky electric big band sides that Matthews scored for Kudu and CTI in the late 70s – smoother than his funky work from the early days, in the Japanese fusion style of the time, but with a bit more big band leanings – given a slightly larger lineup. Players include Grover Washington Jr on tenor and soprano sax, George Young on alto and flute, Gerry Niewood on tenor and flute, Joe Shepley on trumpet, Mark Egan on bass, and Earl Klugh on guitar – and titles include "Sugar", "Sails Of Your Soul", "Begin The Beguine", and "Soft & Funky".

Paul MauriatTransparence/Serenade ... CD
Mercury/Vocalion (UK), 1985/1989. New Copy ... $16.99
Two obscure 80s albums from Paul Mauriat – back to back on a single CD! Transparence is from the mid 80s – a time when the hit easy listening maestro Paul Mauriat was really trying to reinvent himself – mixing in some of his earlier slink with tunes that might be a bit more contemporary for the time – a mode that even has Mauriat tapping tracks by Wham and Madonna! The approach is maybe a bit more electric than some of the earlier albums – keyboards instead of acoustic piano, but still carrying the lead melody, over backings that also are more small and electric than fully orchestrated. Titles include "Like A Virgin", "Careless Whisper", "I Just Called To Say I Love You", "No More Lonely Nights", "Transparence", and "Easy Lover". Serenade is almost a return to some of the older Paul Mauriat modes – in the way the tunes might have some occasional classical references, fuller strings, and an isolated instrument in the lead – but all recorded with production modes that definitely mark the late 80s date of the album. Titles include "Penny Serenade", "Meditation", "Serenade A Coline", "Reverie", "Romance", and "Serenade". CD

Chris McGregor's Brotherhood Of BreathProcession – Live At Toulouse (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Ogun (UK), 1978. New Copy ... $14.99
Amazing music from Chris McGregor and his legendary Brotherhood Of Breath ensemble – easily one of the most exciting forces in British jazz in the 70s, and one fo the few who was still sounding their best in the latter half of the decade! McGregor's got as much bite and burn here as with his famous earlier combo, The Blue Notes – and the lineup here boasts ex-members of that group – Dudu Pukwana on alto, Johnny Dyani on bass, and Louis Moholo on drums – all joining together perfectly with McGregor's long-spun piano lines. The ensemble also features other key British players – Mike Osborne on alto, Evan Parker on tenor, Harry Beckett and Mark Charig on trumpets, and Radu Malfatti on trombone – creating this bold horn section that stretches to the skies on waves of soul! Two lengthy pieces "Sunrise On The Sun" and "Kwaholo" bookend the shorter piece "Sonia". CD features three more tracks not on the original album – "TBS", "Andromeda", and "You Ain't Gonna Know Me Cos You Think You Know Me". CD
