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!)

Harry ArnoldHarry Arnold + Big Band + Quincy Jones = Jazz! ... LP
Mercury, 1958. Very Good ... $2.99
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
(White label promo with deep groove.)

Bar-KaysAs One ... LP
Mercury, 1980. Very Good ... $4.99
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.)

Count BasieCount Basie & His Orchestra (10 inch LP) ... LP
Mercury, Early 50s. Good+ ... $4.99
An early collaboration between Count Basie and Norman Granz – and a real cooker too! Granz shows some great foresight here – grabbing Basie at a time when his group was just getting its groove back, and really learning how to hit a more modern sound! The set includes some great tenor sax work from Eddie Lockjaw Davis and Paul Quinichette –a nd titles include "Sure Thing", "Jive At Five", "Every Tub", and "New Basie Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

Blahzay BlahzayBlah, Blah, Blah ... LP
Mercury/Tuff Kong (Italy), 1996. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $30.99 31.98
MC Outloud & DJ PF Cuttin's underappreciated classic – and the one and only Blahzay Blazay LP! Coming at incredible peak in east cost 90s hip hop, it's not surprising the at effort of this caliber might fall through the cracks, but damn is it over a rock solid effort – right up there in quality of some of the best, relatively stark and bumping NY hip hop of the time on the production tip, but the rhymes are high caliber, too. 13 tracks in all, including "Danger", "Danger (part 2)", "Blah, Blah, Blah", "Don't Let This Rap Sh!t Fool You", "Pain I Feel" and "Good Cop Bad Cop".

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.)

BohannonPhase II ... LP
Mercury, 1977. Sealed ... $6.99
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
(Sealed, with a cut corner.)

Luiz Bonfa/Eumir DeodatoGentle Rain ... LP
Mercury, 1965. Near Mint- ... $16.99
A dreamy little soundtrack to this lesser-known film – but a real bossa classic from the 60s, featuring original tunes by Luiz Bonfa and orchestrations by Deodato! The sound of the set is really wonderful – sometimes fragile, sometimes full – with a juxtaposition that beautifully links American soundtrack modes of the 60s and some of the bossa innovations associated with Bonfa and Deodato. Deodato's orchestrations are possibly the best side of the set – often light and airy with a similar approach to his Os Gatos work – but served up here in shorter snippets that allow a lot of variation on color and theme throughout the record. Album includes classic readings of "The Gentle Rain", "O Ganso", and "Non Stop To Brazil" – plus the tracks "Judy's Story", "Please Help Me One More Time", "Copa Beach", "It's Tempting", "Saturday In Rio", and "Across A Table". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red label pressing with deep groove. Cover has some surface wear, a small cutout hole, and a lightly bent corner with a tear.)

✨✧ Clifford BrownQuintet Vol 2 ... LP
EmArcy/Mercury, Mid 50s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $3.99
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".

Jerry ButlerSweet Sixteen ... LP
Mercury, 1974. Sealed ... $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
(Shrinkwrap is lightly shopworn, with sticker remnants.)
