Count Basie/Lester YoungCount Basie (Mercury MG 25015) (10 inch LP) ... LP
Mercury, Late 40s. Good+ ... $29.99
A cool split LP! Side one features Basie with his Kansas City Seven – with Lester Young on tenor and Buck Clayton on trumpet. And side two is even better – quartet material from Lester Young, with Johnny Guarnieri on piano, Slam Stewart on bass, and Sid Catlett on drums! LP, Vinyl record album
(Vinyl has oxidation on Basie side and plays with some surface noise. Cover has light aging, but looks pretty nice.)

GenesisIn the Beginning (Mercury) ... LP
Mercury, Late 60s. Very Good ... $26.99
Don't mix these guys up with the bigger-name Genesis – because this combo doesn't feature Phil Collins or Peter Gabriel – and instead is an American group from the late 60s that works in a sweetly melodic approach to psychedelia! Some tunes are heavy on the fuzz, with guitars right out front – but others have a slightly more baroque style that befits the group's image on the cover – little bits of woodwind and cello that sweeten the tunes nicely. But it's really the heavier guitars that make the record great – played sharply, and with great focus – sounding especially nice alongside some of the sweeter female vocals. Titles include a roaring 16 minute track titled "World Without You", plus shorter numbers like "Angeline", "Ten Second Song", and a version of Leonard Cohen's "Suzanne". CD features the bonus track "The Long Road". LP, Vinyl record album
(Skyscraper label pressing.)

Cannonball AdderleyCannonball's Sharpshooters ... LP
Mercury, 1958. Near Mint- ... $16.99
A set that's right on target, right from the start – and one that has the young Cannonball Adderley really coming into his groove! The set's a lot more soul jazz-oriented than some of Cannon's records from a few years before – played by a rock-solid group that includes brother Nat Adderley on cornet, Junior Mance on piano, Sam Jones on bass, and Jimmy Cobb on drums – hitting a groove that's got plenty of nascent elements of that Cannonball sound that would virtually take over jazz in the 60s! Yet there's also a nicely different vibe going on here too – a bit less structure, and a looser approach to the mode – spun out with some modern moments too, on titles that include "Straight No Chaser", "Jubilation", "Our Delight", "Fuller Bop Man", and "Stay On It". LP, Vinyl record album

Cat AndersonCat On A Hot Tin Horn ... LP
Mercury, 1958. Very Good ... $11.99
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 light wear, a couple of small seam splits, the remnants of a sticker, and a stain on the back.)

Aphrodite's ChildEnd Of The World ... LP
Mercury (France), 1968. Very Good ... $38.99
A brilliant criss-crossing of pop modes in late 60s Europe – and the first album from Greek rock supergroup Aphrodite's Child! Although later work by the trio was a fair bit more heady, the approach here is more focused psychedelic pop – done in styles that echo strongly with some of the late 60s styles coming out of the Parisian scene, which is where the group were working at the time. Lyrics, though, are sung mostly in English – which gives the record a bit of a Brit psychedelic feel – but there's some other elements here that are also strongly the group's own. A young Demi Roussos sings lead vocals and plays guitar, and new age maestro Vangelis plays organ and percussion with a sound that's quite different than any of his later work! Titles include "End Of The World", "Day Of The Fool", "Valley Of Sadness", "Rain & Tears", "Mister Thomas", "You Always Stand In My Way", and "The Shepherd & The Moon". CD also features some great bonus tracks too – including "Plastics Nevermore", "The Other People", "Magic Mirror", "I Want To Live", and "Lontano Dagli Occhi". LP, Vinyl record album
(French pressing – seems to be from the 70s.)

Georgie AuldDancing In The Land Of HI-FI ... LP
Mercury, 1956. Very Good ... $1.99
Plenty of dancing here – romping rhythms that are a nice change for Georgie Auld, and which make for a perfect foil for his deeper sounds on the tenor! The record's got a bit of Mercury Records rock in the mix – almost a Red Prysock approach at points, mixed with some of the sweeter swing of Georgie's roots – and other players include Ray Linn and Maynard Ferguson on trumpets, and Frank Rosolino on trombone. Titles include "Blue Lou", "I Get A Kick Out Of You", "Rosetta", "Sweet Lorraine", "Prisoners Song", "Got A Date With An Angel", and "Too Marvelous For Words". LP, Vinyl record album
(Drummer logo pressing. Cover has some peeling of the gloss.)

AuraAura ... LP
Mercury, Mid 70s. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $14.99
Is this the same group that went onto become Aurra and record disco records for Salsoul? We don't think so, but folks tell it that it is. Whatever the case, though, the record's a great batch of funky rock tracks, with some really hard groovers that crossover to a funky soul market – despite the obvious rock leanings of the group. Check out the group's excellent version of "Listen To Me (The Ragg)", done with these great descending guitars, soaring organ, and soulful vocals by Al Lathan that are very much in the Baby Huey mode. Other tracks include "No Opportunity Needed, No Experience Necessary", "Song Of Everything", "Life Is Free", "Cross Eyed Eagle", and "Truckin". LP, Vinyl record album

Count BasieCount Basie & His Orchestra (10 inch LP) ... LP
Mercury, Early 50s. Very Good- ... $14.99
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
(Cover has some stains, light wear, and a bit of pencil on the back.)

Blues MagoosElectric Comic Book ... LP
Mercury/Sundazed, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.99
The second bright blast of garage psyche 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

Mercury/Sundazed, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.99
Brilliant garage psych from Blues Magoos – a group that's raw and punchy enough to pummel, but pulled off some sweeter numbers and lighter harmonies incredibly well! Walloping drums, excitable vocals and wailing organ grooves – the cracked the charts, but still bring a fully charged proto punk vibe. Totally excellent, the kind of thing we wish were staples of oldies radio, but for whatever reason are left to deeper rock diggers to discover all these years later. Includes "Sometimes I Think About", "Love Seems Doomed", "Worried Life Blues", "Tobacco Road", "One By One" and "I'll Go Crazy". LP, Vinyl record album

Ralph BurnsFree Forms (10 inch LP) ... LP
Mercury, 1951. Very Good- ... $24.99
A great modern jazz-meets-strings session that follows from Burns' exploratory "Introspection" title for the Jazz Scene collection! Ralph pens some inventive charts that utilize a 15 piece chamber orchestra as backdrops for his own bold lines on piano, as well as some key solo bits from Lee Konitz on half the tracks. The sound is great throughout – modern, but never too academic to swing – and titles include "Places Please", "Cameo", "Lileth", "Spring Is", and "Someday Somewhere". LP, Vinyl record album
(Vinyl is nice and clean, but has a few light pressing bumps – nothing major, and plays pretty well. Cover has light wear, but is nice too – with just a Clef Records sticker near the top. Clef pressing.)

Captain BeefheartBluejeans & Moonbeams ... LP
Mercury, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A bit of a notorious record in the good Captain's career, cut in the transition between the original Magic Band and the fine later lineup that was responsible for the excellent LPs on Virgin. The sound is pretty spare, and without the mindbending twists and turns that Beefheart had made his trademark up to this point, and as such, is more of a straight blues and rock record. Van Vliet still sounds great, croaking his idiosyncratic lyrics in his own bad to the bone manner. 9 tracks in all, including "Party Of Special Things", "Same Old Blue3s", "Observatory Crest", "Pompadour Swamp", "Captains Holiday", "Rock N Roll's Evil Doll", "Further Than We've Gone", "Twist Ah Luck" and "Bluejeans & Moonbeams".

Jimmy ClevelandMap Of Jimmy Cleveland ... LP
Mercury, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $14.99
Arguably Jimmy Cleveland's most successful album as a leader, thanks in part to some tight charts by the great Ernie Wilkins. The group also plays a big hand in the recording, too – as most players (Junior Mance, Jerome Richardson, Ray Copeland) are pretty darn hip, and manage to drive Cleveland past his usual cliches. Tracks are longish, and titles include "Jimmy's Old Funky Blues", "Jay Bird", "Marie", and "A Hundred Years From Today". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label stereo pressing with deep groove. Vinyl has some marks that click a bit on Side 2. Cover has some pen and marker on back.)
