✨✧ Aphrodite's ChildIt's Five O'Clock ... LP
Mercury, 1969. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $34.99
Brilliantly baroque psych from Aphrodite's Child – a stone classic cut while the group was in exile in Paris – heavy on drums, and with soaring keyboards that really work wonders with the vocals! Given that the group features a young Vangelis and Demis Roussos, there's plenty of raw power here – and the energy of the record is quite different than later work by either artist – very bold, and political too – with hardly any signs of their Greek roots, yet a sense of myth and majesty that are undeniable. There's surprising hooks to the tunes at times – and titles include "It's Five O'Clock", "Wake Up", "Annabela. "Let Me Love, Let Me Live", "Funky Mary", "Good Time So Fine", and "Marie Jolie". LP, Vinyl record album

Bar-KaysFlying High On Your Love ... LP
Mercury, 1977. Very Good+ ... $8.99
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 partially unglued bottom seam with a gold promo stamp on the back.)

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.)

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.)

Blues MagoosPsychedelic Lollipop ... LP
Mercury, 1966. Very Good+ ... $14.99
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
(Red label stereo pressing.)

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 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.)

✨✧ Jerry Butler & Brenda Lee EagerLove We Have ... LP
Mercury, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $5.99
Duets between Jerry Butler and Brenda Lee Eager – done as serious, adult oriented soul tracks, one side of the album in an optimistic "The Love We Have" setting, the other in a sadder "The Love We Had" setting – both of them handled in a mode that's far far different than Jerry's 60s duets with Betty Everett. As with most of Jerry's Mercury work at the time, there's some wonderful tunes on the album – including a few numbers written by Terry Callier or Billy Butler – and the whole thing's produced with a subtle approach that creates a solid warm mellow soul vibe throughout. Very hip stuff – and heck, the inside cover even quotes Kenneth Rexroth! Titles include "Lean On Me", "As The Seasons Change", "I Like Your Lovin", "Can't Understand It", "How Long Will It Last", and "Were We Lovers, "Were We Friends". LP, Vinyl record album

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 ShunLoveshine ... LP
Mercury, 1978. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
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
