✨✧ Richard PryorRichard Pryor ... LP
Dove/Reprise, Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Classic early stuff from Richard Pryor – with a wild cover that parodies National Geographic, and which features Richard dressed as a primitive with a bow & arrow! Nice and raw – with routines like "Super N*gger", "Girls", "Farting", and "Smells". LP, Vinyl record album

George BensonInspiration – A Tribute To Nat King Cole (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Concord, 2013. Used ... $6.99
A great old school session from George Benson – and maybe one of his best albums in years! The setting of the album is just what you'd expect from the title – a tribute to the late, great Nat King Cole – with vocals by George that have an uncanny way of matching Cole's phrasing, yet which also have that warm, raspy sound we love so much from Benson – and some of his excellent scat work too! Arrangements are by Randy Waldman and Nelson Riddle – and have this classic blend of strings and jazz that works perfectly for the set – and Benson gets help from guests who include Wynton Marsalis and Til Bronner on trumpets, plus Indina Menzel and Judith Hill too. Titles include "Route 66", "Nature Boy", "Ballerina", "Smile", "Walkin My Baby Back Home", "Unforgettable", "Too Young", and "Straighten Up & Fly Right". Also includes 2 bonus tracks "That Sunday, That Summer" and "Ramblin' Rose". CD

Nat King ColeNat King Cole Sings/George Shearing Plays ... LP
Capitol, 1961. Very Good+ ... $4.99
A nice little session that's one of Nat's last great vocal albums – thanks to some solid jazz backing by George Shearing. Shearing's group here is a super-hip west coast Latin one, with Emil Richards on vibes, Al Hendrickson on guitar, Al McKibbon on bass, and Shelly Manne on drums. Most tracks have them augmented by some larger backings by Ralph Carmichael – which creates this dreamy jazzy pillow for Nat to sing over. Cole's voice is still super-sweet and super-sexy, and the record is a good mix of ballads and more jazzy material. Titles include "Lost April", "Azure-Te", "September Song", "Don't Go", "There's A Lull In My Life", and "Serenata". LP, Vinyl record album

George RussellOthello Ballet Suite/Electronic Organ Sonata No 1 ... CD
Soul Note (Italy), 1970. Used ... $4.99
George Russell's stepping quite far out from his earlier work here – recording in Scandinavia in the late 60s, with some very trippy effects! The album is dominated by the two-part "Othello Ballet Suite" – recorded in Stockholm in 1967 with a group that includes Rolf Ericksson on trumpet, Bertn Rosengren on tenor, and Arne Domnerus on alto – and the sound is a mixture of relatively free and out playing, with a few passages that snap into more of a swinging approach. The "Electronic Organ Sonata No 2" was recorded in Oslo in 1968, and features Russell improvising on the organ of a church. It's a very strange number – but one with a wonderful otherworldly feel! CD

✨✧ Papa George LightfootGoin Back To The Natchez Trace (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Vault/Ace (UK), 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A stunner of a set from funky harmonica genius Papa George Lightfoot – an obscure late 60s album cut for the Vault label, but cut at the early Malaco Studios – not too far from Lightfoot's Mississippi home! George passed away just two years after this record, which makes the set a key part of his legacy – as raw as rollicking a recorded gem as some of our favorites from Slim Harpo on Excello Records – with a similar blend of romping rhythms, sharp guitar, and stunning harmonica lines! Titles include "My Woman Is Tired Of Me Lyin", "New Mean Old Train", "Ah Come On Honey", "Nightime", and "Take It Witcha". CD also features six unissued tracks – including "Train Tune", "Baby Please Don't Go", "Walkin", "Goin Back To Natchez", and "Early In The Morning". CD

Franco CerriInternational Jazz Meeting (Japanese pressing) ... LP
DIW (Japan), 1961. Near Mint- (reissue)... $24.99
Incredible work from guitarist Franco Cerri – really grooving hard here in a session recorded with some top European players at the time! The most notable group member here is Barney Wilen – who plays soprano sax on the date – taking two key solos on the record, and really making the rest of the tracks sound great with his work on the instrument! Other players include George Gruntz on piano, Flavio Ambrosetti on alto sax, KT Geier on bass, and Eberhard Stengel on drums – and Cerri himself really comes across wonderfully in this company – often playing with a raspy edge in his guitar that links the older European styles of the gypsy swing years with the smoother tones of the hardbop generation. Titles include "Misty", "Boplicity", "Mary & Steve", "Flagebakaefra Blues", and "A Serenade For Patrick". LP, Vinyl record album

George ClintonComputer Games ... CD
Capitol/Music Collection International (UK), 1982. Used ... $5.99
Great post-Parliafunkadelicment work from George Clinton – surely the biggest hit of his albums for Capitol – especially since it features the singles "Atomic Dog" and "Loopzilla"! We'll be honest in saying that at the time this one came out, as die-hard Detroit funk fans, we remember thinking "oh gosh, George has lost it" – but from the perspective of many years later, the record sure sounds like classic P-Funk to us – really picking up where the last few Funkadelic and Parliament albums left off! The album sports a great Pedro Bell cover, features some nice work with Bootsy, includes the hits "Atomic Dog" and "Loopzilla" – and also features some lesser-known gems that include "Pot Sharing Tots", "Get Dressed", "Computer Games", and "One Fun At A Time".

Esther PhillipsAlone Again, Naturally ... LP
Kudu, 1972. Very Good ... $8.99
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".

SethGeorge Sprott 1894 to 1975 ... Book
Jonathan Cape (UK), 2010. New Copy ... $5.99 22.00
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

✨✧ Lee MorganProcrastinator (2LP set) ... LP
Blue Note, 1967/1969. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
2 fantastic unreleased sets by Lee Morgan! The first one later came out under the name The Procrastinator – and it has this really weird sound, which is a combination of Morgan's trumpet, Wayne Shorter's tenor, Herbie Hancock's piano, and Bobby Hutcherson's vibes – the last of which gives the record a uniquely angular quality, and a stark modernist sound that's different from other Morgan albums. Titles include "Dear Sir", "Stopstart", and "Rio". The second set features a sextet with Julian Priester, George Coleman, Harold Mabern, and Walter Booker – on tracks that are equally great, and entitled "Free Flow", "Mr Johnson", "The Stroker", "Uncle Rough", and "Untitled Boogaloo".

✨✧ National LampoonRadio Dinner ... LP
Blue Thumb, 1972. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great work from the classic days of the National Lampoon Radio Hour – a really wonderful show that ran on FM radio, and parodied many of the ideals and themes of the post-hippie generation! The work here is done in an underground hip mode that would show up more strongly in the mainstream on Saturday Night Live a few years later – and the only big name in the cast for this record is Christopher Guest, although the set does include a few surprise appearances by Melissa Manchester. Titles include "Concert In Bangla Desh", "Those Fabulous Sixties", "Clue Number Five", "Deteriorata", "Catch It & You Keep It", "Pigeons", and "Magical Misery Tour". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Holly George-WarrenMan Called Destruction – The Life & Music Of Alex Chilton, From Box Tops To Big Star To Backdoor Man (hardcover) ... Book
Viking, 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Alex Chilton has quite a long resume – from early work in the Box Tops, key years as a member of Big Star, and a huge solo career that continued through the punk years and beyond – all of which is chronicled here by author Holly George-Warren, a writer who's got a very personal take on Chilton and his music! The book's a much-needed look at one of the most enigmatic figures of both the Memphis and New York music scenes – and faithfully recounts both Chilton's successes and his slights – those unfortunate shifts that always kept him from being one of the true giants, but which never seemed to interfere with the quality of his music at all. George-Warren had Chilton's cooperation with the book, but also brings her own tone to the writing – nicely tempering some of the bitterness, and illuminating some of the darker moments too. Book is 370 pages, hardcover, and includes some photos. Book

Reprise, 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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.) LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ George DukeSave The Country ... CD
Liberty/Universal (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really great early album from George Duke – quite different than his work for MPS to follow – and more in a groovy late 60s California mode! There's a vibe here that resonates nicely with some other late 60s sessions on Liberty Records – kind of an expansion of a Cali soul jazz mode, similar to the style the Crusaders were starting to go for – but colored in with some of Duke's obviously hip inclinations as well! George plays some great electric piano on the record – and other players include Ernie Watts on tenor and flute, and Jay Graydon on guitar – on titles that include "Soul Watcher", "Since You Asked", "Shades Of Joy", "Alcatraz", and "A Little Bit Of Seven". CD
(SHM-CD pressing!)
