Alzo & UdineC'mon & Join Us! ... LP
Mercury/Universal (Japan), 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
Wild & beautiful! This album's impossible to describe accurately, and it's the only record we've ever seen by the enigmatic Latin-tinged duo Alzo & Udine! The groove has a tight jangly feel, with nice lows, very catchy hooks, and amazing vocals from Alzo & Udine that kind of feel like Mel & Tim mixed with Joe Bataan mixed with The Young Rascals mixed with Jose Feliciano – if you need a comparison! The vocals are laid over spare arrangements that feature bass, guitar, and conga – vamping away in sort of a folk/soul groove – and although the overall approach is quite spare, the quality of the music is heavenly. At some level, the album had to have been a mistake – as it's got a whimsey and honesty that would never have gotten it on the charts – but that's exactly why we love it so much. Titles include "Something's Going", "C'Mon & Join Us", "This Room", "Want Your Love", "Hey Hey Hey, She's OK", and "Define". LP, Vinyl record album
(Part of the Free Soul anniversary series from Japan!)

Bar-KaysInjoy ... LP
Mercury, 1979. Very Good ... $4.99
Later Bar-Kays at their best – still plenty funky, but also working in a smoothly soulful style that became the group's trademark sound at Mercury! The album's got a real bass-heavy appeal from the start – working in a mode that shares a lot with Cameo, The Gap Band, and some of the other mainstream funk acts at the time – yet which still occasionally shows the group's roots in the rougher Memphis scene. There's actually some great ballads on the album alongside the funk – tunes that sweeten the set nicely, and provide a good counterpoint to the more uptempo numbers. Titles include "Girl I'm On Your Side", "More & More", "Running In & Out Of My Life", "You've Been", and "Up In Here". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve.)

Blues MagoosElectric Comic Book ... LP
Mercury, 1967. Very Good ... $9.99
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
(Stereo pressing, missing the comic book.)

BohannonToo Hot To Hold ... LP
Mercury, 1979. Very Good+ ... $4.99
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)... $14.99 18.98
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. LP, Vinyl record album

Jerry ButlerSpice Of Life ... LP
Mercury, 1972. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $2.99
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
(Cover has a light stain on the spine, some splitting on the top seam, and small stickers on back.)

✨✧ Jerry ButlerSweet Sixteen ... LP
Mercury, 1974. Near Mint- ... $9.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

DellsNo Way Back ... LP
Mercury, 1976. Sealed ... $14.99
Fantastic work from The Dells – a group who never seemed to stop turning out greatness – even as they made a shift between different labels in the 70s! This set's got The Dells moving from Chess Records to Mercury – but there's still a strong indie vibe to the set – thanks to Chicago production, and some work at the All Platinum soul factory in New Jersey – a perfect choice, given the wonderful harmony soul that label was putting out at the time! The songwriting is wonderful, and the range of voices is completely sublime – that harmonic range that few other groups could do as well as The Dells. A few tracks are supposedly from the Fred Williamson movie No Way Back, but we've never seen it – and titles include "I'll Try Again", "Adventure", "You're The Greatest", "No Way Back", and "I'll Make You My Girl". LP, Vinyl record album
(With hype sticker.)

DellsThey Said It Couldn't Be Done – But We Did It ... LP
Mercury, 1977. Near Mint- ... $4.99
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.)
