✨✧ Jeff AlexanderDirty Dingus Magee ... LP
MGM, Early 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
What a crazy film! We barely remember this one, but the soundtrack's for a strange western written by Joseph Heller, and starring Frank Sinatra and George Kennedy. Overall, the songs have a mix of groovy and goofy styles – with a few tasty late 60s-sounding numbers that use organ or horns, and a few others that are more cartoony, with lots of "western" touches. Very humorous music overall, with titles that include "Strum", "The Rounders", "Little Big Horny", "Rip Snortin End Title", "Rauncy", and "Hokey". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout hole.)

Gladys Knight & The PipsImagination ... LP
Buddah, 1973. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A pivotal album for Gladys Knight and group – as the record features their super-huge hit "The Midnight Train To Georgia", a landmark track that not only had a catchy pop hook, but which spoke volumes about African-American migration in the postwar years. The track's one of those you've heard a million times, but it's got a strength that still holds up tremendously. Part of this is due to great production work by Tony Camillo – who handled arrangements and studio work on about half the tracks – and part is due to Jim Weatherly, who wrote the song, and about half the others on the album. The whole album's great – one of the best Buddah Records moments for the group – and titles include "I've Got To Use My Imagination", "Window Raising Granny", "Where Peaceful Waters Flow", "Once In A Lifetime Thing", "Best Thing That Ever Happened To Me", and "Storms Of Trouble Times". LP, Vinyl record album
(Still in the shrink, with hype stickers.)

LowlifeLeaders/White Lightning/Thinking Natural ... 7-inch
HoZac, Late 70s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $7.99
Vital roar from late 70s Canada by Lowlife – maybe the first ever punk band from Winnipeg! Given the monsters pictured on the sleeve, you might think "Leaders" would be super gnarly, but it's a pretty hooky track, though plenty raw. "White Lightning" isn't a punk version of the George Jones tune, but another high flying Lowlife original, and it does have a little bit of rootsy fuel to the guitar and bass, maybe inspired by X...not an inspiration we'd ever complain about if so! "Thinking Natural" slays, too. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Esther PhillipsAlone Again, Naturally ... LP
Kudu, 1972. Very Good ... $6.99
One of the deepest soul sets from Esther Phillips' 70s years on Kudu Records – a set with some nicely gritty grooves and a surprisingly earthy feel at times – especially when compared to some of her other albums of the time! Backings are by James Brown's old reedman, Pee Wee Ellis – and although there's some of the usual Kudu electric funk in the mix, there's also some deeper soul elements too – a vibe that's often a bit laidback and open, almost more Atlantic Records at points – which is a mighty good fit for Esther's wonderful voice! As usual for Kudu, the players are an all-star lineup – one that includes Richard Tee on keyboards, George Benson on guitar, Maceo Parker on tenor, and Bernard Purdie and Billy Cobham on drums – and Don Sebesky's also on deck a bit, to sweeten a few tracks up with light strings. The album's got a great version of Bill Withers' "Use Me" that features a tasty break in the intro – and other titles include a great version of "Alone Again (Naturally)", plus the cuts "Let's Move & Groove", "Cherry Red", "Let Me In Your Life", and "You & Me Together".

Frank SinatraSwing Along With Me ... CD
Reprise, 1961. Used ... $5.99
This was Sinatra's first swing record for Reprise and his third collaboration with Billy May who arranged and conducted this 1961 recording. It features some standards from the likes of Rodgers & Hart ("Have You Met Miss Jones?") and George & Ira Gershwin ("Love Walked In"), plus some others like "Granada" and "Moonlight on the Ganges." There is a charming photo of Frank on the back cover swinging a golf club in fine form. (This is the record that was later changed to Sinatra Swings.) CD

✨✧ Nancy SinatraSugar ... LP
Reprise, Late 60s. Very Good ... $12.99
Though one of her groovy Hazlewood produced albums, she only does two Hazlewood-penned tunes on this one: "Coastin", and "Sugar Town". The rest of the songs are the old-timey standards like "Sweet Georgia Brown", "Vagabond Shoes", "Let's Fall In Love", "Oh! You Beautiful Doll" and "Hard Hearted Hannah", though you might not guess that from the hot front cover featuring Nancy posing in a mod pink bikini. LP, Vinyl record album

VariousRedman International – Dancehall 1985 to 1989 ... CD
Dub Store (Japan), Late 80s. New Copy ... $16.99 18.98
Sweet digital dancehall – served up here in a collection that does a great job of looking at the deeper side of the scene in the late 80s! All tracks here appeared on the Redman International label, and there's definitely a number of versions handled by the Redman himself – but only after you take a trip through some great younger singers whose energy really helped breathe new life into Jamaican music during the period – not just through a deft shift in style, but also via an array of changing subject matter too! Titles include "New Tactics" by Admiral Tibet, "Runnings" by Dave Bailey, "Old Chain" by Da Da Waps, "Danger" by Carl Meeks, "Rub A Dub One" by Little John, "Geow Now" by Horace Martin, and "Yu Nu Remember" by Wayne Palmer – plus "Old Chain (version)", "Danger (version)", "When I Release (version)", and "New Tactics (version)", all by Redman.

VariousThousand Incarnations Of The Rose – American Primitive Guitar & Banjo 1963 to 1974 ... CD
Takoma/Craft, 1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $14.99 15.99
A fantastic introduction to the world of acoustic sounds that were brewing deep in the American underground of the 60s – far from the scenes of standard folk, jazz, and rock – where some true pioneers would make music that would only get full appreciation in decades to come! This wonderful collection brings together music from the Takoma and Vanguard Records catalogs – two of the most important imprints in this scene, both of whom gave real freedom to the musicians involved – allowing them to move past familiar restraints of space, time, and style – to create the completely sublime sounds within! You'll recognize some of these figures – who finally got greater fame in later years – but the set also mixes them with some lesser-knowns too. Titles include "Raga 1" by Max Ochs, "Longhorn Express" by Billy Faier, "On The Banks Of The Owchita" by John Fahey, "Gypsy Song" by Peter Walker, "Anyhow" by Leo Kottke, "Little Maggie" by Sandy Bull, "Children's Dance" by Harry Taussig, "Eyrie" by Fred Gerlach, "Thousand Incarnations Of The Rose" by Robbie Basho, "When Kings Come Home" by Peter Lang, "Winterland Doldrums" by George Stavis, "The Portland Cement Factory At Monolith California" by John Fahey, "April In Cambridge" by Peter Walker, "Raga 2" by Max Ochs, and "Water Verses" by Harry Taussig.

✨✧ Beatles/George MartinYellow Submarine ... LP
Apple, 1968. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sure it's a soundtrack, and sure it's got a number of songs that are just instrumentals from the film – but the record also features some excellent late Beatles tracks that can only be found here – including the killer tracks "Hey Bulldog" (almost a funky nugget), "Only A Northern Song", and "All Together Now". Also includes "Yellow Submarine" (natch) – plus "It's All Too Much" and "All You Need Is Love" – and side two features a number of groovy instrumentals from George Martin – including "Pepperland", "Sea Of Holes", "March Of The Meanies", and "Pepperland Laid Waste".

✨✧ Blues MagoosNever Goin Back To Georgia ... LP
ABC, 1969. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great bit of work from the re-formed Blues Magoos – a new incarnation of the group that had a few early garage rock hits, and which on this set features some great work by Eric Kaz, who seems to add a hip singer-songwriter feel to the record. The group have clearly been listening to a lot of blues and blue eyed soul, but also seem to have picked up a jazzy edge too – one that shows up nicely on the album's use of vibes. These are heard to wonderful effect on the instrumental groover "Getting Off", the mellow swinging instrumental "Georgia Breakdown", and on the group's funky cover of Joe Cuba's great "El Pito – I'll Never Go Back To Georgia" LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout hole, wear, and discoloration from age.)

✨✧ George BensonIn Your Eyes ... LP
Warner, 1983. Used ... Out Of Stock
Sweetly jazzy soul from George Benson – a key classic from his great run at Warner Brothers Records, and the kind of record that George did better than anyone else at the time! Back in the 60s, we'd never have guessed that Benson's sweetly crackling vocals would dominate popular jazz more than his great guitar work – but hearing George here, it's clear that his soul work could easily outshine his guitar, especially when set up in a package like this! Atlantic soul maestro Arif Mardin produced, and as with his Chaka Khan productions for Warner at the time, he gives Benson a clean, clear modern style that's certainly pop, but also a lot less cluttered and clunky than modes used with other artists at the time. George is mostly on the vocal tip for the set, and Kashif helps out on one track – no surprise, given that Kashif was soon to walk down the path that Benson had started with his first few vocal albums in the 70s. Titles include "Love Will Come Again", "Use Me", "Late At Night", "In Search Of A Dream", "Lady Love Me", "In Your Eyes", and "Never Too Far To Fall". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a sticker and some marker.)

✨✧ George MukabiFuraha Wenye Gita – Happiness With Guitar ... LP
Mississippi, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
George Muakbi's definitely got some happiness in his guitar here – a bright, lively style that dances along with the spare rhythms of the tunes – in a groove that's beautifully offset by the vocals of George and his partner! The music is relatively spare, but ushered in a new stylistic generation in Mukabi's native Kenya – and after all these years, there's a timeless quality to these tunes that really holds up. The main focus is often on George's deft work on acoustic guitar – notes that spin out strongly, and cascade in a mix of melody and rhythm – sometimes with just a slight bit of percussion in the background, and vocals traded back and forth in a nicely sing-song way. Titles include "Festo Amahaya", "Sengula Nakupenda", "Tom Itabale", "Jared Onyango", "Fuhara Wenye Gita", and "Bibi Mzuri Nyumbani". LP, Vinyl record album
(Comes with a nice booklet of notes, too!)

✨✧ Natasha AgramaHeart Of Infinite Change ... CD
Alpha Pup/World Galaxy, 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic young jazz singer, and one who really has her own style very firmly in place – one of those rare talents that comes along once in a blue moon, and makes us instantly sit up and go "wow", right after hearing just a few notes! Natasha Agrama is steeped in many of the best jazz traditions, but wraps them up all into a unique strand that instantly makes her music very special, and very personal – definitely jazz vocals at the core, but with lots of contemporary inflections and wonderful instrumentation – served up by a mix of classic and present talents who include Ronald Bruner on drums, Thundercat on bass, George Duke on Fender Rhodes, Stanley Clarke on bass, and Austin Peralta on piano and Rhodes. The set begins with a wonderful take on Joe Henderson's "Black Narcissus", then rolls into a great update of Mingus' "Goodbye Porkpie Hat", before taking on Bilal's "All Matter", and transforming older standards "Lover Man", "I Wonder What Became Of Me", and "In A Sentimental Mood".

✨✧ SethGeorge Sprott 1894 to 1975 ... Book
Jonathan Cape (UK), 2010. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of our favorite books from Canadian cartoonist Seth – just the sort of special, individual story that's so well-suited to his artwork – presented here in a wonderful format throughout! The book tells the tale of TV host George Sprott – but in a way that weaves together shorter stories and individual moments from both Sprott's live, and recollections from some of his (ficticious) contemporaries – an approach that's almost in the territory of Chris Ware's presentation, but with a lot more warmth, and that sublime graphic style that Seth has adapted from midcentury cartooning, and made completely his own. Most parts of the book are in striking two-tone color, and the book even has a few fold-out pages that are especially nice! Book
