Jerry ButlerBest Of Jerry Butler (Mercury) ... LP
Mercury, 1970. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Seminal work by one of our favorite soul singers of all time! Jerry first came to fame with The Impressions and on his own in the early 60s – singing dark moody easy tunes that well earned him the nickname of "Iceman". In the late 60s, though, he moved onto Mercury where he broke through even bigger with some excellent early production by Gamble & Huff, which took Jerry to a whole new level, and which gave his work a swinging soul groove that worked great with his vocals. This set compiles some of the best moments of the Mercury years – including "Never Give You Up", "Lost", "Moody Woman", "Mr Dream Merchant", "Hey Western Union Man", and "Only The Strong Survive".

✨✧ Fela & Africa 70Zombie (Mercury pressing) ... LP
Mercury, 1977. Sealed ... Just Sold Out!
One of the few US major label issues of work by Fela, and a record that's titled after the import Zombie LP, but which has a different set of tracks. The record does include the 12 and a half minute reading of "Zombie" that was on the original LP – but then it's also got "Monkey Banana" and "Everything Scatter". Still nice and groovy, though, and everything's up there with Fela's best material! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Demis RoussosDemis Roussos (Mercury) ... LP
Mercury, 1978. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
One of the best-remembered albums from Greek singer Demis Roussous – a soulful 70s set that's quite a change from his early material in the group Aphrodite's Child! The set was recorded in the US, with warm soulful arrangements from Don Peake and Freddie Perren – who serve up some clubby modes at times that turn out to be a surprisingly great mix for Demis' voice, blended with some mellower moments that are in his more familiar mode as a solo singer. Titles include the great club classic "LOVE Got A Hold Of Me", plus "Life In The City", "Feel Like I'll Never Feel This Way Again", "The Other Woman", "I Just Live", "That Once In A Lifetime", and "This Song". LP, Vinyl record album

Gene AmmonsLight, Bluesy, & Moody ... LP
Wing/Mercury, Late 40s/Late 50s. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Essential early stuff by Jug! The record is a 50s compilation of singles that Jug cut for Mercury during the late 40s, when he was transforming from a hard swing player into a firey bopper – but one who was capable of infusing his solos with a rich sense of emotion that was enough to bridge both generations of jazz. The tracks are great, and are essential listening I the career of Gene Ammons. The original recordings are very tough to find – and even this album doesn't show up that often. Filled with great tracks – like "Red Top", "Hot Springs", "Concentration", "Jeet Jet", and "Odd En Dow". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label Wing pressing, with deep groove and drillholes. Cover has light wear, half split top seam and spine, and two drillholes through the center.)

✨✧ Cat AndersonCat On A Hot Tin Horn ... LP
Mercury, 1958. Very Good+ ... $16.99
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

Bar-KaysAs One ... LP
Mercury, 1980. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
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.)

Bar-KaysFlying High On Your Love ... LP
Mercury, 1977. Very Good ... $6.99
A great step forward for The Bar-Kays – an album that actually has them taking on a few mellower moments, amidst the heavy funk you might expect – yet all without softening their groove at all! The album's very much in the best spirit of the group's Mercury debut – still recorded in Memphis, with production that's tight, but never uptight – enough to firmly put the group at the top of the funk superstar scene of the mid 70s, yet never sell out the rich Memphis groove that first got them going! Titles include "You Can't Run Away", "Let's Have Some Fun", "Can't Keep My Hands Off You", "Whatever It Is", and "Shut the Funk Up". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve.)

Bar-KaysToo Hot To Stop ... LP
Mercury, 1976. Very Good+ ... $14.99
A pivotal album from The Bar-Kays – a key post-Stax set, but one that's still very firmly grounded in Memphis funk! The groove definitely shows a bit more polish than before – the same sort of shift the Ohio Players made after moving to Mercury Records – but as with the Players at their best, there's still plenty of sharp edges and deeply funky moments on the record – and if anything, the shift has really given The Bar-Kays a way to evolve their sound past some of the heavier modes of the early days, without losing any of the appeal of their groove! Some cuts have some great keyboards – almost producing a spacey funk feel at points – and titles include "Too Hot To Stop (part 1)", "You're So Sexy", "Cozy", "Spellbound", "Whitehouseorgy", and the nice mellow track "Summer Of Our Love". LP, Vinyl record album
