Avco, Early 70s. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $9.99

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

✨✧ Miles Davis/Art BlakeyAscenseur Pour L'Echafaud/Des Femmes Disparaissent (Mercury) ... LP
Fontana (France), 1958. Used ... Out Of Stock
A great album that features 2 famous jazz soundtracks back to back, one on each side! Side one features Miles Davis legendary recording for Ascenseur Pour L'Echafaud – One of our favorite-ever Davis albums, and a stunning soundtrack that began a rich legacy of jazz scores in France! Miles recorded this material during late-night post-gig sessions with a great group that includes French players Barney Wilen, Rene Urtreger, and Pierre Michelot, plus American ex-patriot Kenny Clarke. Wilen's playing is fantastic, and it's great to hear him and Miles together on the score's spooky meandering passages. The album reproduces the original 10 track lineup of the material – and titles include "Florence Sur Les Champs-Elysees", "L'Assassinat De Carla", "Diner Au Motel", "Evasion De Julien", and "Sur L'Autoroute". Side 2 presents Art Blakey's wonderful score to the 1959 film Des Femmes Disparaissent – which features work by Jazz Messengers Lee Morgan, Bobby Timmons, and Benny Golson, recorded in Paris in 1958, with a hip swinging hardbop sound. The record is totally amazing – 11 short-running tracks of Blakey's bop genius, fiery little film nuggets in tight blasts! Includes "Pierre Et Beatrice", "Mambo Dans La Voiture", "La Divorcee De Leo Fall", "and "Des Femmes Dispariassent". LP, Vinyl record album
(80s Dutch pressing. Cover has an unglued bottom seam.)

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.)

✨✧ Black SheepWolf In Sheep's Clothing ... LP
Mercury, 1991. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A Native Tongues (more or less) hip hop classic from 1991! We hardly need tell you about this one, but in case you can't remember, this is the LP with "Flavor Of The Month", "Similak Child", "Pass The 40", "To Whom It May Concern", "Butt In The Meantime", "Strobelite Honey", and more! Totally legit, with the original cover, and everything! LP, Vinyl record album

Paul BleyPaul Bley ... LP
Mercury, 1954. Near Mint- ... $34.99
Early early work by Paul Bley – years before he picked up the synthesizer, and years before he became the moody modernist he was in the 70s! The album's a relatively straight batch of tracks, but does have a touch of modernism – an early example of the sharp sounds that Bley would fully forge in alter years. The lineup is nice, too – with either Percy Heath or Peter Ind on bass, both players who clearly feel Bley's intentions – and Al Levitt on drums. Tracks are mostly standards, but they're done by Bley in a way that's fresh and sprightly – and titles include "My Heart", "Topsy", "I Want To Be Happy", "Autumn Breeze", and "My Old Flame". LP, Vinyl record album
(Nice Japanese pressing!)

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. Very Good- ... $1.99
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

✨✧ BohannonSummertime Groove ... LP
Mercury, 1978. Very Good ... $8.99
One of the biggest and best albums ever for Hamilton Bohannon – filled with quirky rhythms and really unusual grooves! Bohannon was one of the key forces in setting the scene for disco invy 70s – and by the time the rest of the country was hitting the dancefloor in the middle part of decade, he was still moving forward, into a whole new realm of groove! The tracks on this set have some really mad rhythms – skittish and scattered, still with a dancefloor approach, but with lots of odd touches that set them apart from the rest of the pack. A key example of this is the great tune "Me & The Gang", which has this off-key piano loping out over chunky beats – but the whole thing's great, with a lot more of a sly edge than you'd expect from the cover. Titles include "Summertime Groove", "The Street Dance", "Let's Start The Dance", "Listen To The Children Play", and "I Wonder Why". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ 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.

✨✧ Jerry ButlerSagittarius Movement ... LP
Mercury, 1971. Near Mint- ... $7.99
One of the great albums of trippy soul that Jerry Butler cut with his Fountain Productions group of players, arrangers, and engineers – a group that borrowed a lot of talent from the Chess/Cadet studios of the late 60s. Jerry produced with Gerald Sims, and the arrangements were handled by Sims, James Mack, and Donny Hathaway (who also played piano on the record.) Tracks include "Ain't Understanding Mellow", "Windy City Soul", "True Love Don't Come Easy", and a lesser known Terry Callier/Billy Butler track called "Sail Away". LP, Vinyl record album

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

Mercury, 1970. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $4.99
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

✨✧ Con Funk ShunTo The Max ... LP
Mercury, 1982. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
Snapping grooves and a sweet clubby sound from Con Funk Shun – one of the best 70s ensemble funk groups to make the transition to 80s groove years! The bass is tight, the keyboards are electric, and the rhythms are great – never forced or stiff, and always flowing with a sense of soul that's head and shoulders above most of the group's contemporaries. Vocals are strong too – especially on the numbers that step things down a few notches – and titles include "Ms Got The Body", "Let's Ride & Slide", "Everlove", "Hide & Freak", "You Are The One", "Take It To The Max", "The Freak", and "Love's Train". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve.)
