Cat AndersonCat On A Hot Tin Horn ... LP
Mercury, 1958. Very Good ... $14.99
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
(Blue label stereo pressing with deep groove. Cover has some notes in pen on back.)

Bar-KaysFlying High On Your Love ... LP
Mercury, 1977. Very Good ... $7.99
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 few light creases.)

Bar-KaysNightcruising ... LP
Mercury, 1981. Very Good+ ... $5.99
Man, these guys really know how to groove – and even on a bigger label, with a more commercial image, they still manage to come up with a tight little set! There's a key ear for a bassline and beat that keeps The Bar-Kays standing stronger than most of their contemporaries – a sense of rhythm schooled in years of indie funk that comes through even on the mellower cuts here – which themselves show an even better side of the group in this generation, one that comes across great here on a few slower numbers that have a sweetly stepping groove. Titles include "Nightcruising", "Freaky Behavior", "Feels Like I'm Falling In Love", "Touch Tone", "Hit & Run", "Unforgettable Dream", "Traffic Jammer", and "Backseat Driver". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cut corner and a sticker.)

Blues MagoosElectric Comic Book ... LP
Mercury, 1967. Very Good ... $19.99
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
(Original mono pressing with deep groove. Cover has a Can Be Played On Stereo sticker and a small split on the bottom seam.)

Peter Boyle/Bobby ScottJoe Speaks ... LP
Mercury, 1970. Very Good ... $3.99
A wonderful document of a very wild film! The album's a companion soundtrack to the musical score of Joe – and features star Peter Boyle speaking his mind on topics that include the economy, hippies, drugs, and drinking! The set includes a few of the vocal numbers from the film – folksy rock numbers written by Bobby Scott that include "Hey Joe", "Where Are You Going", and "You Can Fly" – next to bits by Boyle that have a really creepy sort of edge. Titles include "The American Bar Scene", "Four Bucks An Hour", "Park Avenue Offices", "I Got All I Need Sonny", "Making It", and "Guess Who's Coming To Dinner". LP, Vinyl record album

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)... $18.99
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. Very Good+ ... $5.99
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
(Cover has a split top seam & some light wear.)

Ralph CarterYoung & In Love ... LP
Mercury, 1976. Very Good ... $0.99
One of the stars of the hit 70s show Good Times takes a crack at the same crossover TV/soul market that was being exploited by Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs of Welcome Back Kotter and Kim Fields from Facts of Life. Fortunately, as with most of these efforts, there's some good help instrumentally, so that the overall album can take over with 70s grooves where the soul vocals might get a bit weak. Titles include "Higher & Higher", "Song In My Heart", "Number One", "When You're Young & In Love", "Extra, Extra", and "As Long As There's Love (We're Gonna Make It)". LP, Vinyl record album

Gene ChandlerGene Chandler Situation ... LP
Mercury, 1970. Very Good+ ... $6.99
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

Chi-LitesFantastic Chi-Lites ... LP
Mercury, 1977. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Fantastic Chi-Lites is right, because the group's still going strong even after their hit years on Brunswick – stepping forth with a sweet harmony sound that nicely fits the Philly arrangements they get on this set! There's a maturity here that gets past the fragile soul of earlier sets, and which has the group moving into a warmly adult mode that's a perfect shift from their more familiar hits. Includes the classic club groover "My First Mistake" – a stunning track that recalls the best work of groups like Blue Magic or Double Exposure – and other tracks include "I've Got Love On My Mind", "If I Had A Girl", "Who's In Love With Me", "Let's Touch", and "Love At Its Best".

Al Cohn & Zoot SimsYou N Me ... LP
Mercury, 1960. Very Good ... $14.99
One of the best albums that Al Cohn and Zoot Sims ever cut together – and that's saying a lot, given the strength of their collaborations during the 50s and 60s! The set's got a nice small group feeling, and is a bit more open and relaxed than some of their RCA material – still in the sharp, thoughtful mode that marked both Cohn and Sims' sessions – but also a bit more earthy, too – possibly because they've got Mose Allison in the combo on piano. The album includes the incredible spare sax-only track "Improvisation For Unaccompanied Saxophones", which is an extremely haunting track that sounds unlike anything the pair had ever done together – and other titles have the full quintet playing, tunes that include "The Opener", "The Note" and "You N Me". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing with deep groove. Vinyl has a messy drillhole though the label, with vinyl run-off on one side. Cover has some pen & marker on back, a small split on the top seam, and drillholes through the center.)

Con Funk ShunLoveshine ... LP
Mercury, 1978. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Funky genius from Con Funk Shun – working here under the production helm of Skip Scarborough, who seems to give them an even sharper edge than usual! The album's filled with those tightly compressed rhythms that Skip was so great in producing back in the 70s – grooves that seem to make more out of doing less – and which have a sense of space and timing that's totally impeccable. There's a few light jazzy touches at times too – bits of flute, sax, and organ that bring in a nice sense of depth, and which takes it far past easily classified funk! Titles include "So Easy", "Shake & Dance With Me", "When The Feelings Right", "I Think I Found The Answer", "Wanna Be There", "Can't Go Away", "So Easy", and "Magic Woman". LP, Vinyl record album
