✨✧ Jerry ButlerBest Of Jerry Butler (Mercury) ... LP
Mercury, 1970. Used ... Out Of Stock
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a split top seam, a cutout hole, and light wear.)

✨✧ Bar-KaysFlying High On Your Love ... LP
Mercury, 1977. Very Good- ... $5.99
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. Cover has a small cutout hole and a few creases.)

Bar-KaysInjoy ... LP
Mercury, 1979. Very Good ... $5.99
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.)

✨✧ Bar-KaysToo Hot To Stop ... LP
Mercury, 1976. Very Good ... $9.99
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".

Blues MagoosElectric Comic Book ... LP
Mercury, 1967. Very Good ... $11.99
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+ ... $6.99
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 ButlerJerry Butler Sings Assorted Sounds – With The Aid Of Assorted Friends & Relatives ... LP
Mercury, 1971. Very Good+ ... $6.99
One of the albums in which Jerry Butler showcases the talents of a new generation of young Chicago soul talents – including Terry Callier, Donny Hathaway, Chuck Jackson (from The Independents, not the New York soul star), and his brother Billy Butler. Billy Butler had already scored big with his own singles on Okeh in the 60s, but Terry, Donny, and Chuck were still emerging soul talents at this time – and it was pretty darn nice of Jerry to give them exposure on a record like this. Proof that The Iceman always was much more than just the simple singer of pop hits that he always gets tagged for – as it was pretty magnanimous of him to share the wealth of his big contract with Mercury, not to mention pretty smart to infuse his career with some good young songwriting talent. The whole record's got a good groovy soul sound, and includes the cuts "How Did We Lose It", "If It's Real What I Feel", "What Is It", and "Do You Finally Need a Friend". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some splitting on the top seam.)

Jerry ButlerSpice Of Life ... LP
Mercury, 1972. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $4.99
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.)

Gene ChandlerGene Chandler Situation ... LP
Mercury, 1970. Sealed ... $9.99
Killer stuff from Gene! After recording a few sadly overlooked albums for Brunwsick, Gene hit big big big with this killer record on Mercury! The record virtually defines the Chicago soul sound of the late 60s – with arrangements by Tom Tom, production by Gene, and a great loping soul groove – but the best part of all is Gene, who's an amazing singer with a maturity that stretches years beyond his earlier hits, and which put him in a camp with the best of his generation. The songwriting is excellent throughout, with a great mix of uptempo numbers and heartbreakingly personal ones. Titles include "Groovy Situation", "Simply Call It Love", "Not The Marrying Kind", "Give Me a Chance", and "Hey, Little Angel". LP, Vinyl record album
(Shrinkwrap is lightly shopworn, with a hole in front.)

✨✧ Con Funk ShunTo The Max ... LP
Mercury, 1982. Very Good- ... $2.99
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".

Not to be confused with Cugat's Favorite Rhumbas, his best-selling album on Columbia – this set's a batch of mambo and rhumba tunes of similar vintage, recorded for Mercury, and featuring Cugie at his big band Latin best! Titles include "A Gay Ranchero", "Miami Beach Rhumba", "Chiu Chiu", "Blue Tango", "Linda Mujer", and "Cucaracha Mambo". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing with deep groove.)
