✨✧ Patti PageChristmas With Patti Page (Mercury) ... LP
Mercury, 1955. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first great Holiday album from Patti Page – a mid 50s Mercury album that brought together a host of seasonal recordings made by the singer – most of which show a side of Patti that's a bit different than her hits! Page's vocals here have a straight, expressive feel – respectful to the material, and a lot less likely to move into gimmicky pop moments – a vibe that's right up there with Rosemary Clooney at the same time, especially in the way that Patti's got this warm glow to her presentation of the lyrics. The music is somewhat overlooked, both in the Christmas cannon and in Page's own catalog – which makes it a nice discovery, too. Titles include "The First Noel", "Jingle Bells", "Silent Night", "Pretty Snowflakes", "Christmas Choir", "I Wanna Go Skating With Willie", "Where Did My Snowman Go", and "Christmas Bells". CD features bonus tracks, too – including "Little Donkey", "Boogie Woogie Santa Claus", "Home For The Holidays", "The Christmas Song", and a special "Christmas Greetings From Patti".

BohannonToo Hot To Hold ... LP
Mercury, 1979. Near Mint- ... $8.99
One of the most full-on funk albums that Bohannon recorded for Mercury – a set done with a sextet of additional players, in a groove that's much more in the ensemble mode of other funk acts on the label! The usual Bohannon drive is still in full effect, though – and Hamilton's rhythms are as compelling as ever, served up with his usual percussive undercurrent, and plenty of extra work on bass, guitar, and keyboards. Carolyn Crawford sings ovcals on most numbers, and titles include "Groove Machine", "The Boogie Train", "Andrea", "The Time Is Now", "Love Floats", and a remake of "Stop & Go".

BrahmsViolin Concerto In D Major Op 77 – Henryk Szeryng/Antal Dorati/London Symphony Orchestra (180 gram pressing with download) ... LP
Mercury, 1962. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
A sublime take on Brahms' Violin Concerto In D Major – captured here with wonderful sound as part of the Living Presence legacy from Mercury! Antal Dorati conducts the London Symphony with that famous ear for color and tone that made him one of the most dynamic orchestra talents of his time – and the legendary Henryk Szeryng matches his mood beautifully with his incredible approach on the violin – a mode that was first formed during the stiffer years of mono classical recording, which required the player to have a very vivid sound – enriched by greater subtleties during the stereo generation on records like this.

✨✧ Clifford BrownRemember Clifford ... LP
Mercury, 1955/1963. Very Good ... $3.99
A lasting tribute to Brownie! The album was released some years after Brown died, and is comprised of songs from his 1955 album Clifford Brown With Strings, plus a few tracks from other recording sessions from that year before his death. The players include Richie Powell (Bud Powell's brother who also died in the crash with Brown),piano; Max Roach on drums and Harold Land and Sonny Rollins on tenor sax. Brown's original composition "Sandu" and Richie Powell's own "Time" are included as well as "Yesterdays," "Cherokee (Indian Love Song)," "Willow Weep for Me" and an unusual version of "Take the A Train."

Jerry ButlerJerry Butler Sings Assorted Sounds – With The Aid Of Assorted Friends & Relatives ... LP
Mercury, 1971. Very Good ... $6.99
One of the albums in which Jerry Butler showcases the talents of a new generation of young Chicago soul talents – including Terry Callier, Donny Hathaway, Chuck Jackson (from The Independents, not the New York soul star), and his brother Billy Butler. Billy Butler had already scored big with his own singles on Okeh in the 60s, but Terry, Donny, and Chuck were still emerging soul talents at this time – and it was pretty darn nice of Jerry to give them exposure on a record like this. Proof that The Iceman always was much more than just the simple singer of pop hits that he always gets tagged for – as it was pretty magnanimous of him to share the wealth of his big contract with Mercury, not to mention pretty smart to infuse his career with some good young songwriting talent. The whole record's got a good groovy soul sound, and includes the cuts "How Did We Lose It", "If It's Real What I Feel", "What Is It", and "Do You Finally Need a Friend". LP, Vinyl record album

Jerry ButlerSpice Of Life ... LP
Mercury, 1972. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $9.99
Perhaps the greatest record Jerry Butler made in the 70s, and a very tight bit of baroque Chicago soul with arrangements and production by Samuel F. Brown III. The tracks are a good mix of originals and covers, and they all show Jerry going way past his Gamble & Huff/Mercury years – into the sophisticated mix of soul, jazz, and studio imagination that was going down on the Chicago scene of the late 60s and early 70s. A few cuts feature duets with Brenda Lee Eager, but the best numbers are the solo ones, like "A Prayer", "That The Way it Was", "If I Could Remember", and "I Need You". LP, Vinyl record album

Chi-LitesHappy Being Lonely ... LP
Mercury, 1976. Very Good ... $2.99
Beautiful beautiful work from The Chi-Lites – and a record that we might even say tops the best of their late Brunswick book! Despite the move from that label to Mercury, the group have a sound here that's still wonderfully fragile and harmony-focused – especially on the mellower cuts, which crackle with a sense of humanity that so many other harmony groups were losing at the time. But even the more upbeat tunes are great too – rolling along on some spacious arrangements by Tom Tom Washington, and showing that Chicago could come up with grooves to rival the sound of Philly! Titles include the great ballad "Love Can Be Hazardous", the Sam Dees number "Vanishing Love", and the titles "Don't Blame The World", "Message To The World", "Let Your Love Fall Like Rain", and "I Turn Away".

Caroline CrawfordMy Name Is Caroline ... LP
Mercury, 1978. Very Good ... $12.99
A killer soul set from Caroline Crawford – with production, arrangements, and songwriting by Hamilton Bohannon – soaring, beautiful, uniquely soulful sounds from the late 70s! Crawford's got a hell of a voice – equally well-suited to deeper soul ballads and uptempo groovers – and with Bohannon on board, there's plenty of groovers – although we like the mellow cuts just as much! Crawford was sort of Bohannon's big vocal discovery, and the Mercury efforts were a good use of his instrumental sound in a vocal driven framework – one that succeeds not just on the clubby soul level of his own records, but which also hits a more emotional tone than a lot of the dancefloor soul of the era. Johnny Allen contributed the string orchestrations – and titles include "Riding On Your Love", "Tell Me You'll Wait", "Coming On Strong", "It Rains Because" and "Caroline Breakdown".

DellsThey Said It Couldn't Be Done – But We Did It ... LP
Mercury, 1977. Near Mint- ... $2.99
Brilliant 70s work by The Dells – and an album that has the group reinventing themselves wonderfully, by moving over to Philly and recording with Norman Harris! As he did with so many other artists at the time, Harris took the group firmly into the clubs with a soaring Sigma sort of groove – one that supports the group with backings from players that include key Philly talents like Bobby Eli, Ron Kersey, Larry Washington, and Earl Young – but which also keeps plenty of space for the sublime harmonies that always made The Dells so great! Titles include "Teaser", "Our Love", "Could It Be", "Rich Man Poor Man", "Waiting For You", "Get On Down", and "Betcha Never Been Loved". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the insert. Cover has a small corner cut.)

DellsWe Got To Get Our Thing Together ... LP
Mercury, 1975. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A big move to Mercury for the Dells, after a pretty successful run at Cadet in the late 60s and early 70s – but the group's still in fine form vocal-wise, and on many of these they're still working with the great Don Davis, who gave the band a strong 70s soul groove, similar to his work with The Dramatics. Charles Stepney produced the great "Love Is Missing From Our Lives", which features guest work by The Dramatics, and a great sound that's very much in the classic 70s group tradition. Other nice cuts include "Overnight", "We Got To Get Our Thing Together", "Thank God You're My Lady", and a version of Terry Callier's "You Don't Care". LP, Vinyl record album

Mercury, 1980. Very Good ... $7.99
Very nice album of modern soul tracks, written, produced, and performed by Jesse Boyce and Moses Dillard (who also did some nice early singles for Curtom!) Jesse Boyce sings all lead vocals, and the production is nice and smooth, with a bit of a jazzy tinge. Tracks include "Love Is the Melody", "Love Zone", "I Feel Your Love", "We're In This Thing Together", and "I Should Be Loving You". LP, Vinyl record album

Eyes Of BlueCrossroads Of Time ... LP
Mercury/Wah Wah (Spain), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
Great work from a group who definitely are in the budding years of the UK progressive scene – but one who also knows how to stick to a tighter combo sound too! The record's got a really wonderful vibe – the full-on fire of some late beat group work, but much more farther-reaching in conception – both lyrically and instrumentally, especially when some light production touches kick in to do great things to the organ and vocals. The musical themes are a bit heady, too – some nicely political touches, but in a subtle way – and the group also turn out a nice cover of Love's "7 + 7 Is", alongside other tracks that include "Crossroads Of Time", "I'll Be Your Friend", "Prodigal Son", "Largo", "Love is The Law", and "Inspiration For A New Day". LP, Vinyl record album
