Pierre HenryLe Voyage (Mercury pressing) ... LP
Mercury, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $29.99
Excellent album of avant garde electronic pieces based on the Tibetan Book Of The Dead, and written by French electronic music genius Pierre Henry. This LP's very different than his funky Messe Pour Les Temps, and has a spare, hollow, spooky sound, with lots of noisy bits, and harsh electronics. Classic music concrete, with the entire piece divided into "Breath 1", "After Death 1", "After Death 2", "Peaceful Deities", "Wrathful Deities", "The Coupling", and "Breath 2". LP, Vinyl record album
(Maroon label stereo pressing. Cover has some light wear.)

Mercury, 1950s/1960s. Near Mint- 6LP ... $84.99
Maybe the best volume so far in this wonderful series – Universal's repressing of vintage Mercury Living Presence albums in limited boxes! The titles here include some of the more unusual, more obscure Living Presence titles. Many of the works are conducted by the Mercury heavyweights – Antal Dorati, Paul Paray, and Howard Hanson – and the range of composers includes Franck, Bloch, Wagner, Respighi, Gounod, Rossini, and Strauss – with a bit less of the vocal or "gimmicky" performances that sometimes showed up on the label. Repertoire is rock-solid throughout – and the package comes with a book that offers notes on each title too! LP, Vinyl record album
(Numbered, limited edition of 2000. Includes original book! Box has a small spot of sticker residue and marker over the barcode, but otherwise is in great condition!)

Cannonball AdderleyCannonball Adderley Quintet In Chicago (Audiocheck 45rpm pressing) ... LP
Mercury (Japan), 1959/1977. Near Mint- ... $11.99
A great session from 1959 – one that features John Coltrane playing with the Adderley group, recorded in Chicago when they were stopping through the city with Miles Davis' combo at the time! In fact, since the rhythm section includes Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers, and Jimmy Cobb – and since Coltrane's sitting in with Cannon – the album's essentially a Kind Of Blue-era Miles album, recorded without Miles on trumpet, and grooving in a slightly more soul-based Adderley mode. Given the presence of Coltrane, there's a bit less of the gutbuckety soul jazz that Cannon was cutting in his own Quintet – but that's more than ok with us, as the Coltrane solos more than make up for that difference! The record has only 4 tracks, but it spins at 45 rpm, and was pressed on high-quality Japanese vinyl. It's part of the "Audiocheck" series. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Harry ArnoldHarry Arnold + Big Band + Quincy Jones = Jazz! ... LP
Mercury, 1958. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Hard swinging big band material from Sweden – featuring the big band of Harry Arnold arranged by Quincy Jones. Quincy had been spending a lot of time in Sweden during the mid 50s – bringing with him a host of great players that would soon become big names on the European scene. Biggest of these is Benny Bailey, who plays some good solos here with a mostly-Swedish group that includes Arne Domnerus, Bengt Hallberb, Ake Persson, and Bengt-Arne Wallin. The style of the work, and its trans-Atlantic jazz orientation, is a direct precursor of later work by the Clarke-Boland Big Band – of whom Bailey was a big part. Titles all swing nicely, and tracks include "Doodlin", "Room 608", "Quincy's Home Again", "Brief Encounter", and "Meet Benny Bailey". LP, Vinyl record album

Sil AustinSil Austin Plays Pretty For The People ... LP
Mercury, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $2.99
No honking here, as Sil Austin takes his deeply soulful tenor sax, and turns it to a set of creamy late-nite tracks – all done over some very "pretty" backings, ala the Verve strings work of Ben Webster or Lester Young. Most cuts have voices in with the orchestrations – and titles include "I'll Walk Alone", "Call me", "Ruby", "My Mother's Eyes", "Stardust", "Prisoner Of Love", and "Sweet Slumber".

Bar-KaysAs One ... LP
Mercury, 1980. Very Good+ ... $7.99
The Bar-Kays definitely groove as one on this tight little set – with amazing choppy guitar, bumping basslines, and brassy horns – all wrapped up with some wonderfully warm production! The group have come a long way from their fuzzier funk roots by this time, but they're still sounding great – thanks to a matured outlook on their music, one that has them fitting nicely alongside some of their Mercury ensemble funk contemporaries – but in ways that still make them stand out from the pack! Titles include "Body Fever", "As One", "Say It Through Love", "Open Your Heart", "Deliver Us", and "Take The Time To Love Somebody". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a cut corner, some staining, and a small rip on the opening.)

Bar-KaysNightcruising ... LP
Mercury, 1981. Very Good ... $3.99
Man, these guys really know how to groove – and even on a bigger label, with a more commercial image, they still manage to come up with a tight little set! There's a key ear for a bassline and beat that keeps The Bar-Kays standing stronger than most of their contemporaries – a sense of rhythm schooled in years of indie funk that comes through even on the mellower cuts here – which themselves show an even better side of the group in this generation, one that comes across great here on a few slower numbers that have a sweetly stepping groove. Titles include "Nightcruising", "Freaky Behavior", "Feels Like I'm Falling In Love", "Touch Tone", "Hit & Run", "Unforgettable Dream", "Traffic Jammer", and "Backseat Driver". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has moderate wear.)

Black SheepWolf In Sheep's Clothing ... LP
Mercury, 1991. Very Good ... $34.99
A Native Tongues classic from 1991 – one that sounded great way back when, and has held up beautifully over the years – and rightly considered amongst the greatest hip hop albums ever! Wolf In Sheep's Clothing is playful rap at it's best, with funky and and funny cuts galore – but the title is apt, as the wit is pretty sharply barbed – especially when they're skewering hardcore and gangsta cliches. It's as brilliant as ever. Includes the massive "Flavor Of The Month", "Similak Child", "Pass The 40", "To Whom It May Concern", "Butt In The Meantime", "Strobelite Honey", "Are You Mad?", "Blunted", "For Doz That Slept" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

BohannonPhase II ... LP
Mercury, 1977. Near Mint- ... $5.99
A nice disco record from Hamilton Bohannon. The album mainly contains uptempo dance numbers but there are a few slower songs like "Daddy's Little Son" – a dedication to his son whose picture is on the cover of the album. The other tracks are "Andrea", "But What Is A Dream", "Bohannon's Disco Symphony", "Isn't It A Beautiful Morning", "Just Doing My Thang", and "Moving Fast". Some of Bohannon's original band members like Ray Parker, Jr. turn up playing guitar on some of the songs. LP, Vinyl record album

BohannonToo Hot To Hold ... LP
Mercury, 1979. Near Mint- ... $9.99
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".

Ralph BurnsFree Forms (10 inch LP) ... LP
Mercury, 1951. Very Good+ ... $11.99
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

Jerry ButlerPower Of Love ... LP
Mercury, 1973. Very Good ... $1.99
An easy album to overlook, but not without some nice moments! Johnny Bristol produced the record, and he gives it a nice sweet 70s soul groove, similar to what he was using in his own work from the time. And typical of Jerry's albums from the early 70s, there's lots of nice original material, including stuff by Terry Callier, Johnny Bristol, Billy Butler, and Jerry himself. Includes "What Do You Do On A Sunday Afternoon?", one of our secret faves, plus "Memories Don't Leave Like People Do", "Whatever Goes Around", "Whatever's Fair", and "Too Many Danger Signs".

Jerry ButlerSweet Sixteen ... LP
Mercury, 1974. Very Good+ ... $7.99
A lost little gem from Jerry – recorded towards the end of his years with Mercury. The record's got Jerry working in a much hipper style than before, drawing off the pool of younger Chicago soul talents that he'd begun to collect on some of his earlier albums for Mercury – and the album features tracks by Leroy Hutson, Terry Callier, Marvin Yancey, and the team of Hanks and Grey. Richard Evans handled the arrangements, and they're a good extension of his work at Cadet – with strong bass-heavy soul grooves, augmented by strings and some great funky clavinet work. Titles include the funky classics "I'm Your Mechanical Man" and "You've Been Around Too Long" – plus "High Stepper", "Start Living It Up", "Sing To Me", "Take The Time To Tell Her", and "Playing On You".

A great little album by Jerry – recorded during a period where he was using his fame (and cash!) to showcase younger talents in soul music. In this case, the younger talents include Terry Callier – who contributed two songs to this album, including his semi-hit "Ordinary Joe", which Jerry does in a nice groovy style. Other tracks include "You & Me", "Real Good Man", "Life's Unfortunate Sons", "No Money Down", and "Winter Of A Loving Heart". LP, Vinyl record album

Captain BeefheartBluejeans & Moonbeams ... LP
Mercury, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $6.99
A bit of a notorious record in the good Captain's career, cut in the transition between the original Magic Band and the fine later lineup that was responsible for the excellent LPs on Virgin. The sound is pretty spare, and without the mindbending twists and turns that Beefheart had made his trademark up to this point, and as such, is more of a straight blues and rock record. Van Vliet still sounds great, croaking his idiosyncratic lyrics in his own bad to the bone manner. 9 tracks in all, including "Party Of Special Things", "Same Old Blue3s", "Observatory Crest", "Pompadour Swamp", "Captains Holiday", "Rock N Roll's Evil Doll", "Further Than We've Gone", "Twist Ah Luck" and "Bluejeans & Moonbeams". LP, Vinyl record album
