✨✧ Eric MercuryElectric Black Man ... LP
Avco, Early 70s. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Ouch! What a bad title! But the record's actually Eric Mercury's best – a blend of soul and rock styles, sung in his raspy voice, handled with arrangements by Paul Harris that have a nice righteous sound and a bit of funk in the mix. Titles include "Life Style", "Earthless", "Tears, No Laughter", "Everybody Has The Right To Love", "Night Lady", "Hurdy Gurdy Man", and "Electric Black Man". LP, Vinyl record album

Cat AndersonCat On A Hot Tin Horn ... LP
Mercury, 1958. Very Good ... $11.99
Sweet trumpet work from one of Duke Ellington's best sidemen – done for Mercury in 1958 with some very tight arrangements by Anderson and Ernie Wilkins – all in a mode that show's a bit of Cat's Ellington association, but which also opens up in some other swinging modes – including a bit of Basie, and even some wider ranging styles. Cat's in the lead on trumpet, getting support from other players on the instrument – including Clark Terry, Ernie Royal, and Ray Copeland – plus Jimmy Cleveland and Frank Rehack on trombone, Earl Warren on alto sax, Jimmy Forrest and Ernie Wilkins on tenor, and Sahib Shihab on baritone. Titles include "Little Man", "Cat's In The Alley", "June Bug", "Adorable D", "Nina", "Birth Of The Blues", and "Blue Jean Beguine". LP, Vinyl record album

One of the only soundtrack projects we've ever seen from Carla Bley – performed with a version of her band that includes Michael Mantler on trumpet, Steve Slagle on saxes, Vincent Chancey on French horn, Arturo O'Farrill on piano and toy organ, Steve Swallow on bass and toy synth, and Bley herself on organ and toy piano!

Blues MagoosElectric Comic Book ... LP
Mercury, 1967. Very Good ... $14.99
The second bright blast of garage psych grooves from Blues Magoos – their excellent Electric Comic Book set for Mercury – just as great as the first album! At this early point, the group brings a deliriously high energy approach, even in the studio – we can only imagine how incredible the live show must have been – but still with catchy harmonies and a wicked sense of humor. The organ and heavy drums is the bedrock for garage rock to come, too! Titles include "Pipe Dream", "There's A Chance We Can Make It", "Gloria", "Summer Is The man", "Baby I Want You", "Take My Love", "Rush Hour" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Original mono pressing with deep groove. Cover has a Can Be Played On Stereo sticker and a small split on the bottom seam.)

Peter Boyle/Bobby ScottJoe Speaks ... LP
Mercury, 1970. Very Good ... $3.99
A wonderful document of a very wild film! The album's a companion soundtrack to the musical score of Joe – and features star Peter Boyle speaking his mind on topics that include the economy, hippies, drugs, and drinking! The set includes a few of the vocal numbers from the film – folksy rock numbers written by Bobby Scott that include "Hey Joe", "Where Are You Going", and "You Can Fly" – next to bits by Boyle that have a really creepy sort of edge. Titles include "The American Bar Scene", "Four Bucks An Hour", "Park Avenue Offices", "I Got All I Need Sonny", "Making It", and "Guess Who's Coming To Dinner". LP, Vinyl record album

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 BrownQuintet Vol 2 ... LP
EmArcy/Mercury, Mid 50s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $6.99
Second volume pulled together in the early 80s of Brownie's remarkable work with a smoking quintet that would record some of the finest bop sides issued on the Emarcy label. He's working here with Max Roach, George Morrow and Richie Powell and either Sonny Rollins or Harold Land as Brown's foil in the front line. 16 tracks in all: "George's Dilema", "If I Love Again", "The Blues Walk", "What Am I Here For", "Cherokee", "Jacqui", "Sandu", "Gertrude's Bounce", "Junior's Arrival", "Powell's Prances", "Flossie Lou", "What Is This Thing Called Love", "Love Is A Many Splendored Thing", "I'll Remember April", "Time" and "The Scene Is Clean".

Ralph BurnsFree Forms (10 inch LP) ... LP
Mercury, 1951. Very Good- ... $6.99
A great modern jazz-meets-strings session that follows from Burns' exploratory "Introspection" title for the Jazz Scene collection! Ralph pens some inventive charts that utilize a 15 piece chamber orchestra as backdrops for his own bold lines on piano, as well as some key solo bits from Lee Konitz on half the tracks. The sound is great throughout – modern, but never too academic to swing – and titles include "Places Please", "Cameo", "Lileth", "Spring Is", and "Someday Somewhere". LP, Vinyl record album

Al Cohn & Zoot SimsYou N Me ... LP
Mercury, 1960. Very Good ... $11.99
One of the best albums that Al Cohn and Zoot Sims ever cut together – and that's saying a lot, given the strength of their collaborations during the 50s and 60s! The set's got a nice small group feeling, and is a bit more open and relaxed than some of their RCA material – still in the sharp, thoughtful mode that marked both Cohn and Sims' sessions – but also a bit more earthy, too – possibly because they've got Mose Allison in the combo on piano. The album includes the incredible spare sax-only track "Improvisation For Unaccompanied Saxophones", which is an extremely haunting track that sounds unlike anything the pair had ever done together – and other titles have the full quintet playing, tunes that include "The Opener", "The Note" and "You N Me". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing with deep groove. Vinyl has a messy drillhole though the label, with vinyl run-off on one side. Cover has some pen & marker on back, a small split on the top seam, and drillholes through the center.)

✨✧ Con Funk ShunSpirit Of Love ... LP
Mercury, 1980. Very Good- ... $2.99
A stellar bit of boogie from Con Funk Shun – produced to perfection by Skip Scarborough, and done in a style that has lots of jazzy elements! The album was recorded well into the group's time on the Mercury label, but it's a real standout from the rest – thanks to an extremely well-written batch of tunes, and a mode of bass-heavy funk that avoids the cliches of other groups at the time – and goes for a more laidback style that sounds especially nice on the mellower numbers. Michael Cooper's great on lead vocals – and titles include "By Your Side", "Early Morning Sunshine", "Curtain Call", "Happy Face", "Juicy", "Lovestruck 1980", and "Honey Wild". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes insert.)

✨✧ Con Funk ShunTouch ... LP
Mercury, 1980. Very Good ... $3.99
A killer from Con Funk Shun – one of the few mainstream funk groups who actually managed to sound better and better with each new record – and on this set, they really seem to come into their own! The group's sound was always suited better to a smoother groove than a rougher one – and for the set, their tight brand of funk is topped off by vocals that seem even better crafted than before – harmonizing surprisingly well at the funkiest moments, then stepping back to let Michael Cooper take the lead on the ballads. There's also some great moogy keyboard bits that keep things interesting, but which never go over the top in an electro way – and titles include "Too Tight", "Lady's Wild", "Give Your Love To Me", "Kidnapped", "Welcome Back To Love", "Touch", and "Play Widit".
