✨✧ Bar-KaysDangerous ... LP
Mercury, 1984. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A tighter sound than before for The Bar-Kays – that lean approach to funky grooves that some of their contemporaries were hitting as the 80s moved on – yet still served up here by the full ensemble with a relatively fresh feel overall. Amidst the beats and keyboards, there's still lots of nice funky inflections on bass and guitar – often handled in a skittish mode that energizes things nicely, especially alongside the more electro-styled vocals. The vibe of the record is definitely in keeping with the cover – but in the best way possible – and titles include "Dangerous", "Dirty Dancer", "Make Believe Lover", "Freakshow On The Dance Floor", and "Sexomatic".

✨✧ Bar-KaysLight Of Life ... LP
Mercury, 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Proof that even a move to a major label couldn't keep the Bar-Kays down – as the group are working here in a great groove that's wider, fresher, and stronger overall than any of their Stax albums! Sure, the whole thing's not guitar-based funk all the way through, but the group are also maturing, and really opening up a lot – working equally well on ballads and mellower midtempo numbers, as they were on the still tight funkier tracks. The overall sound is almost that of the Ohio Players when they moved to Mercury, but without the chart hits, and more of a focus on working at a level that's even higher than before! The band still jams it hard on the funky cut "Give It Up", but also kicks back with some beautiful harmony vocals on "I Lean On You/You Lean On Me", get some great pop hooks in on "Shine", and come together nicely on the tracks "We're The Happiest People In The World", "Angel Eyes", "Are You Being Real", and "Love's What It's All About".

✨✧ Clifford BrownQuintet Vol 2 ... LP
EmArcy/Mercury, Mid 50s. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Second volume pulled together in the early 80s of Brownie's remarkable work with a smoking quintet that would record some of the finest bop sides issued on the Emarcy label. He's working here with Max Roach, George Morrow and Richie Powell and either Sonny Rollins or Harold Land as Brown's foil in the front line. 16 tracks in all: "George's Dilema", "If I Love Again", "The Blues Walk", "What Am I Here For", "Cherokee", "Jacqui", "Sandu", "Gertrude's Bounce", "Junior's Arrival", "Powell's Prances", "Flossie Lou", "What Is This Thing Called Love", "Love Is A Many Splendored Thing", "I'll Remember April", "Time" and "The Scene Is Clean".

✨✧ Clifford BrownRemember Clifford ... LP
Mercury, 1955/1963. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A lasting tribute to Brownie! The album was released some years after Brown died, and is comprised of songs from his 1955 album Clifford Brown With Strings, plus a few tracks from other recording sessions from that year before his death. The players include Richie Powell (Bud Powell's brother who also died in the crash with Brown),piano; Max Roach on drums and Harold Land and Sonny Rollins on tenor sax. Brown's original composition "Sandu" and Richie Powell's own "Time" are included as well as "Yesterdays," "Cherokee (Indian Love Song)," "Willow Weep for Me" and an unusual version of "Take the A Train."

✨✧ Chi-LitesFantastic Chi-Lites ... LP
Mercury, 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ Peter GabrielPeter Gabriel 3 – Melt ... LP
Mercury, 1980. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Peter Gabriel at the top of his solo game – tight, focused, and coming across with a nice sort of edge – one that really sits nicely in the same late 70s generation that includes Bowie in Berlin, early Talking Heads, and some of the darker-minded work on the left side of the mainstream at the time! The guitars have a nice edge, but never dominate – and Gabriel's vocals are totally great – soaring with majesty, but never overblown, and deeply personal in all the right spots – but without any fake soul modes. Instrumentation is right on the money – processed nicely, but never overproduced – and hell, players on the album even include Brit jazz legend Dick Morrisey on a handful of tracks! Titles include "No Self Control", "I Don't Remember", "Biko", "Intruder", "And Through The Wire", and "Games Without Frontiers". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Gap BandGap Band III ... LP
Mercury, 1980. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great one from the Gap Band – funky gems and sinister groovers – the best of both worlds for the group! Tunes like "Burn Rubber On Me (When You Want To Hurt Me)" and "Humpin" packed 80s dance floors for good reason, and put the band in steady rotation, while numbers like "Yearning For Your Love" showed the band could drop the tempo, stretch out a bit, and deliver the mighty mellow, too. This one's certainly at the top of the heap of 80s groovers, as far as we're concerned – a record that really took the Gap Band over the top! Other tracks include "Nothin' Comes To The Sleepers", "Are You Living", "The Way", "Gash Gash Gash" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Wild tenor/organ trio side featuring the great Chicago R&B tenor player with an obscure organist named Dayton Selby.

Cool 2LP collection of some of Roland Kirk's best stuff from his Mercury years, including a motherlode of tracks that are very very hard to find on LP! Tracks include "Reed & Deeds", "Rip Rig & Panic", "Where Monk & Mingus Live", "Get Out Of Town", "The Haunted Melody", "Between The Fourth & Fifth Step", "Black Diamond", "Domino", "Meeting On Termini's Corner", "Raouf", and "No Tonic Pres".

Jack McDuffKisses ... LP
Sugar Hill, 1980. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Sure, it's not McDuff's funkiest record – but this is an excellent batch of smooth soulful tunes that show that McDuff was perfect in just about any setting! The core group on the set is Jack's Heatin' System ensemble – with Joe Farrell on saxes and Phil Upchurch on guitar – but they're augmented by some cool spacey fusion arrangements that sort of feel like late 70s slick jazz sides for Mercury or Columbia. The style works great with McDuff's keyboards – and were the record pushed at a better level, it would have put Jack up there with some of the smooth jazz stars of the 70s. Titles include "Say Sumpin Nice", "Night Fantasies", "Pocket Change", and "Tunisian Affair". LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy McGriffTailgunner ... LP
LC, 1977. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $5.99
A later album by Jimmy – recorded in a smooth slick jazz funk mode, a bit like the style that Jimmy Smith used on some of his Mercury recordings. The organ of Jimmy is augmented by keyboards played by Pat Rebillot and Paul Griffin – which makes for a nice mix of organ and electric piano sounds, plus some occasional moog that's very nicely placed! If you're not looking for full out funk, this is actually a great little album – with some wonderful little steppers that come across in a cool mellow jazz funk way. Titles include "Flexible Flyer", "Sky Hawk", "Grandma's Toe Jam", and "Bullfrog". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Steve Miller BandFly Like An Eagle ... LP
Capitol, 1976. Very Good- ... $2.99
A masterpiece from the legendary SF rocker Steve Miller – and a perfect summation of the years of blues, soul, funk, and rock he'd been soaking up in the Bay Area scene – served up here with an edge that's still very firmly in place! Miller was already plenty great before this set, but somehow the record really pushes Steve into perfection territory he'd never hit before – able to cross over big with a few key tracks, but still have this sharpness in his guitar work and sense of charm that never seem to die! The album crossed over instantly with the massive cut "Fly Like An Eagle" – already great on its own, but supported here with the massive "Space Intro", which adds an extra minute of cool electronics to the tune – and other great cuts include the amazing funky rocker "Take The Money & Run", which has a break that never gets old – plus the hit "Rock N Me", and the cuts "The Window", "Wild Mountain Honey", "Sweet Maree", "Blue Odyssey", "Mercury Blues", and "Dance Dance Dance".

9th CreationSuperheroes ... LP
Hilltak, 1979. Very Good ... $7.99
A great record of jazzy soul by this oft-overlooked west coast group! The record has a tight sound that works well with the band's slightly funky style – and the groove leans a bit towards the Wayne Henderson side, and is similar to his At-Home productions work for Fantasy or Mercury. Includes the cuts "Got My Baby Back", "Shucks You're Fine", "I'd Do It Again", and the nice "Love is a Fantasy". Sweet and jazzy – very nice! LP, Vinyl record album

Paul QuinichetteMoods ... LP
EmArcy, 1955. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Perhaps the best-known (and arguably the best) record by Paul Quinchette, and an album that brings his rich tenor solo style into contact with a very tight, very swinging batch of arrangments by a young Quincy Jones. Quincy's got an all-star batch of players backing up Q, including Sam Most, Charles Thompson, Paul Chambers, and Barry Galbraith – plus players like Willie Rodriguez and Manny Oquendo, who bring some added Latin percussion to the session. The tracks are short, but with a very open approach to soloing, and although Quinchette's in the lead, some of the other players get their licks in quite a bit. Titles include "Pablo's Roonie", "Shorty George", "Grasshopper", and "Tropical Intrigue". LP, Vinyl record album

Max RoachAward Winning Drummer ... LP
Time, 1959. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
An obscure set from Max Roach – but right up there with his best work of the late 50s on Mercury and other labels! The album features the "award winning" drummer in a quintet with Booker Little on trumpet, Ray Draper on tuba, George Coleman on tenor, and Art Davis on bass – a cool piano-less group that hits some really unusual notes! Draper's horn provides a deep bottom to the record, mixing with Davis' exotic tones nicely – and the album represents Roach's increasing penchant for experimentation in the post Clifford Brown years – tunes with an offbeat edge that's really great. Titles include "Pies Of Quincy", "Tuba De Nod", "Milano", and "Sadiga". LP, Vinyl record album

Max Roach & Clifford BrownDaahoud ... LP
Mainstream, 1956. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $11.99
Previously unreleased work from the legendary group of Clifford Brown and Max Roach – recorded back in the 50s, when Mainstream producer Bob Shad was working on the Brown/Roach dates for Mercury – but not issued until this set in the 70s, when Shad had his own label! The music here is right up there with the best 50s classics by the pair – really showcasing that amazing trumpet style that made Brownie a genius right from the start – next to some of the burning energy he forged with Roach in the group. Every player's tremendous – Harold Land on tenor, Richie Powell on piano, and George Morrow on bass – and titles include two Clifford Brown originals – "Daahoud" and "Joyspring" – plus Roach's "Mildama", plus the standards "I Don't Stand A Ghost Of A Chance", "I Get A Kick Out Of You", and "These Foolish Things Remind Me Of You".

ShadowShadow ... LP
Elektra, 1980. Very Good ... $16.99
A mellow modern classic from the great early 80s soul years at Elektra Records – produced by the legendary Leon Ware, and done with a groove that's right up there with his own work for the label! Shadow are a spinoff trio from the Ohio Players – and the grooves here take off wonderfully from the mellower side of the OP years at Mercury – that tightly compressed way of hitting a ballad or midtempo number the group developed – tripping along with light rhythms that are perfect for Ware's hand in the studio. A few tracks groove things up – but only in a gentle way – and the three voices come together with a quality that's a bit different than the usual harmony soul of the time. Ware wrote every song on the record – and titles include "Mystery Dancer", "I Can't Keep Holding Back", "Village Destiny", "Sweet Movin", "Beyond The Finish Line", "Hot City", and "Can You Keep It Up".

Louis SmithHere Comes Louis Smith ... LP
Blue Note, 1957. Very Good ... $39.99
Trumpeter Louis Smith made only two records for Blue Note, but both of them are great! This set's arguably his most famous – because of a rare uncredited appearance by Cannonball Adderley, working here under the "nom de date" of "Buckshot La Funke" – and blowing with a power that beats most of his other Mercury sessions of the late 50s! But the real credit here should go to Louis Smith – who's got a sense of power and command that should have made him one of THE trumpeters of the 50s – an emerging young talent to stand alongside Lee Morgan, Nat Adderley, and other post-Fats Navarro/Clifford Brown talents on the instrument. Smith sparkles throughout with a mix of soul and modernism we really love – and an earthy way of blowing the horn that doesn't always reach its goals, but which draws even more energy from its ability to try! The rhythm section on the album's also very tight – with Art Taylor on drums, Doug Watkins on bass, and either Tommy Flanagan or Duke Jordan on piano – and tracks include "Ande", "Brill's Blues", "South Side", and "Val's Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

UndergroundPsychedelic Visions ... LP
Wing/Wah Wah (Spain), 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
A classic set of raw raunchy rock from the late 60s – originally issued as kind of a "cash in" record to grab some bucks on the rise of psych and garage – but a record that easily stands head to head with the best of its time! These guys drink heavy from the same brew as The Seeds, Count Five, Sonics, and other groups of the period – and work in a raw, garagey style that's hardly what you'd expect from Mercury Records Wing label subsidiary – especially given the sound of the guitars! Many cuts are covers, but they're performed with as much bold energy as the original tracks – and the set is awash in freak, fuzz, and echo! Titles include "Psychotic Reaction", "Psychedelic Dream", "Psychotic Vibrations", "Mind Jammer", "The Warper", and "Turn On Your Love Light". LP, Vinyl record album

Prestige, 1968. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An amazing (and often forgotten!) quartet session that brings together the enigmatic pianist Jaki Byard and the mind-blowing multi-reed player Roland Kirk! Kirk and Byard had played together previously – most notably on some of Kirk's Mercury recordings – and they fit together perfectly in this mad session of off-kilter jazz that takes off beautifully from the very first note! Rhythm is by the crack team of Alan Dawson on drums and Richard Davis on bass – a pair who can open up creatively when needed, but also return the record to a soulful swing when it's getting too far out. The whole thing's great – and titles include "Parisian Thoroughfare", "Evidence", "Memories Of You", and "Hazy Eve". LP, Vinyl record album

Beautiful duo soul from the all-time great Roberta Flack and Donny Hathaway – released right around the time of Donny's tragic passing! The set was co-produced by Eric Mercury and Flack – and it has a lot of great vocals from Roberta, with as masterfully paired with Donny as always – plus guest vocal appearances by Luther Vandross, Gwen Guthrie, and Eleanore Mills, and even Mercury, who sings a bit on one track! Titles include couple of nice Stevie Wonder tunes – "You Are My Heaven" and "Don't Make Me Wait Too Long" – plus "Stay With Me", "God Don't Like Ugly", "Only Heaven Can Wait", and "Disguises".

✨✧ George JonesWhen My Heart Hurts No More ... LP
Southern Routes, Early 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Excellent early work from the legendary George Jones – easily one of the best singers to ever grace the field of country music, heard here at a seminal turning point when he was really starting to find his sound! The collection brings together early Mercury and United Artists recordings by George – with a focus on the sorts of tunes that have him opening up a lot more emotionally than a few years before – allowing those melancholy strains that would make Jones one of the most heartfelt country singers of the 70s. And while Jones' early years are sometimes summed up in tunes that are maybe a bit more rocking or playful, these are the sides that really helped him move forward strongly as an individual. Titles include "Tender Years", "There's No Justice", "Did I Ever Tell You", "When My Heart Hurts No More", "We Must've Been Out Of Our Minds", "Let's Invite Them Over", "Into My Arms Again", and "She Thinks I Still Care".

Daptone, 2016. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the coolest new groups we've heard on Daptone in a long time – an instrumental combo that's definitely funky, but which has some of the exotic touches you might expect from their name! There's a nice current of strings that slide in alongside more familiar funk instrumentation – some violins, cellos, and even a harp – used to give the groove this expansive vibe that's partly blacksploitation soundtrack, but much more than that as well! Both Leon Michels and Neal Sugarman are in the group on tenor sax – but the real brainchild here seems to be Toby Panzer, who produced and arranged, and who plays a range of sublime sounds on organ, clavinet, harpsichord, vibes, and percussion! Titles include "Sirens Of Jupiter", "Saturn", "Pluto's Lament", "Mercury's Odyssey", "Europa & The Bull", "Sagittarius By Moonlight", "Neptune", "Mars", and "Diana By My Side". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Max Roach & Clifford BrownBest Of Max Roach & Clifford Brown In Concert! ... LP
GNP, 1954. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
It's hard to overstate the influence of Max Roach and Clifford Brown on the west coast scene of the 50s – as the two players helped draw out the bop sound of LA that was quickly getting lost in the cool jazz shuffle of the time, and gave it a strength and focus that not only made the group one of the strongest of the time, but which also sparked new life and a hardbop generation on the LA scene! This classic set of live recordings was one of the first great Brown/Roach moments – recorded during 2 different concerts by Gene Norman Presents, and featuring some great tenor work by LA giants Teddy Edwards and Harold Land, plus some piano by the amazing "sideways" player Carl Perkins, as well as Bud Powell's brother Richie – a key factor of the group's studio recordings on Mercury, and a player who would perish in the same accident that took the life of Clifford Brown. Titles include "Parisian Thoroughfare", "I Can't Get Started", "I Get A Kick Out Of You", and "Jordu". LP, Vinyl record album

Cannon's left his usual soul jazz combo for this album – and he's recording on the west coast with an all-star group that includes Wes Montgomery on guitar, Victor Feldman on vibes and piano, Ray Brown on bass, and Louis Hayes on drums. The sound's a bit different than usual – with a strong focus on the solos of the big stars, and less on the tight grooving of the group – but that doesn't stop it from being a great set, and Cannon blows in a way that reminds us of his classic Mercury sides. Titles include "The Chant", "Azule Serape", "Never Will I Marry", and "Au Prive". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label Bill Grauer pressing with microphone logo & deep groove. Cover has a split top seam.)
