Little Anthony & The ImperialsI'm On The Outside (Looking In) ... LP
Veep/DCP, 1966. Very Good- ... $2.99
One of the nice albums that Little Anthony recorded after moving to Veep during the mid 60's. By this point, the group was recording a little bit more pop stuff than they used to on their old records, but their harmonies were still great, and they were also cutting a lot of other great original tracks that were written for them by Teddy Randazzo, who also produced and arranged. Cuts include "I'm On the Outside (Looking In)", "Please Go", "Our Song", and a remake of their classic "Tears On My Pillow". LP, Vinyl record album

Shelly ManneOutside ... LP
Contemporary, 1970. Near Mint- ... $16.99
If you've ever doubted the influence of Coltrane on jazz, just check this 1970 session from Shelly Manne – one in which he's broken past the usual tight west coast TV jazz sound, and has moved into much freer territory with a group of younger (and hairier!) players. The group icnludes Pete Robinson on piano and electric piano, Gary Barone on trumpet, and John Gross on tenor and flute – and while the tracks are not as "outside" as the title might imply, they do have strikingly freewheeling solos, and Shelly's doing his best to go all over the kit to keep up with the kids. Not a bad album overall, actually – and with the tracks "For Bean", "Don't Know", "Steve", and "River Running". LP, Vinyl record album
(70s Japanese pressing – great cover and vinyl!)

✨✧ MandrillJust Outside Of Town ... LP
Polydor, 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Really tremendous work from Mandrill – an instant funky classic, and a set that has the group furthering the sublime sound they crafted on their seminal Composite Truth! The record has all these wonderful twists and turns – not just the usual 70s funky styles, but inflections from a globe's worth of influences – all filtered down and used here in fresh new ways to really keep the sound interesting – with a tightness that's never slick, and which instead has this really visionary approach that may well top some of Mandrill's higher-charting contemporaries! Instrumentation has plenty of jazz inflections, which really keeps things interesting – and the percussion has so many different styles going on, it's hard to keep track! Titles include the massive sample cut "Fat City Strut" – plus "Never Die", "Two Sisters Of Mystery", "She Ain't Lookin Too Tough", "Interlude", "Mango Meat", "Afrikus Retrospectus", and "Aspiration Flame".

✨✧ Chico FreemanOutside Within ... LP
India Navigation, 1981. Used ... Out Of Stock
A great, expansive quartet side from Chico Freeman, where he's supported by John Hicks, Cecil McBee and Jack DeJohnette. Freeman's playing and writing has always fused his journeyman years with the AACM with the soulful, full-toned south side approach of his father, Von Freeman, and a very post-Coltrane spirituality, and he really stretches out nicely on this set. The first side of the album is nice lengthy number, "Undercurrent" and the second side has 3 more succinct numbers, "The Search", "Luna" and "Ascent". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has wear.)

American GypsyAmerican Gypsy ... LP
Chess, 1975. Near Mint- ... $48.99
An album that begins with an amazing break – and then rolls into a great batch of fuzzy guitar grooves! The set is one of the odder albums to be issued by Chess Records during its funk years – as American Gypsy were a Dutch band, recording in Holland, and the record was only licensed to Chess for release in the US. We're not sure what made them make this international ploy in their dying years (as they also did with the album Atlantis, by Daniel Salinas), but the move gave them a great bit of funk that's been a favorite with collectors for years! At some point, the album's got a rock/soul sound – almost in the vein of Thin Lizzy or some of the other European groups of the time – but on the best cuts, that heavy guitar gets used to great funky ends, and the rest of the group jumps in line with a good groove. The most famous cut is the massive "Inside Out", which has an excellent breakbeat, funky bass, and very soulful grooves – but other nice cuts include "Golden Ring", "While It's Cold Outside", and "Let Your Life Lead By Love". LP, Vinyl record album
(Beautiful 90s Japanese pressing!)

Gato BarbieriUnder Fire ... LP
Flying Dutchman, 1973. Very Good Gatefold ... $9.99
Great work from Gato – filled with Latin rhythm influences forged on his Impulse sessions of the same time, plus some nice spiritual blowing in the Pharoah Sanders tradition in which he was linked in the immediate post-Coltrane years. Airto and Mtume are on percussion on most tracks, and Lonnie Liston Smith plays some pretty outside piano on the set. All tracks are long, and titles include "El Parana", "Antonico", "El Sertao", and "Maria Domingas". LP, Vinyl record album

BedheadTransaction De Novo (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Numero, 1998. Near Mint- Gatefold (reissue)... $14.99
The last full length transaction from slowcore pioneers and TX heroes Bedhead – one of the more influential indie rock bands of the 90s, which is all the more amazing given that they were largely ignored outside of a small, devoted fanbase! The quiet, but tense dynamic established on their first 2 albums continues here, with subtle builds in tension perfectly captured by Steve Albini's direct, no frills engineering. Titles include "Exhume", "More Than Ever", "Parade", "Half-Thought", "Forgetting", "Lepidoptera", "Psychosmatica" and "The Present". LP, Vinyl record album

Steve BeresfordEleven Songs For Doris Day (10 inch LP) ... LP
Chabada (France), 1985. Near Mint- ... $19.99
We love these Chabada 10 inches! A nice series that allowed many of the players on the British avant jazz scene an outlet to explore themes outside the free improv scene, this one finds pianist Steve Beresford paying tribute to Doris Day and the music featured in her films, along with reedist Tony Coe and drummer Terry Day. Beresford breaks out his tuba – okay, it's a euphonium – and melodica, and there's vocals by Deb'bora on many of the tracks. Includes "Que Sera, Sera", "It's Magic", "Serenade in Blue", "Sentimental Journey" & "I'm Beginning to See the Light" LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Ray Charles & Betty CarterRay Charles & Betty Carter ... LP
ABC, 1961. Very Good ... $9.99
A classic album of soul duets – and one of the deeper records cut by Betty during the 60s! The arrangements are by the great Marty Paich, and although there's some singers in the background, the overall sound is still pretty nice and soulful. Betty's high voice works well with Ray's raspy low one – especially on their classic duet version of "Baby, It's Cold Outside". Other tracks include "For All We Know", "Every Time We Say Goodbye", "Side By Side", and "You & I". LP, Vinyl record album

Norman ConnorsDance Of Magic (Cobblestone pressing) ... LP
Cobblestone, 1972. Very Good ... $14.99
A landmark first album from drummer Norman Connors – a spiritual jazz masterpiece that builds wonderfully on the post-Coltrane tradition! Norman is years away from his smoother soul recordings at this point, and coming out of a righteous jazz background that included work with Marion Brown and Archie Shepp. For this initial set, Norman's in incredible company – working with players that include Herbie Hancock on both electric and acoustic keys, plus Eddie Henderson on trumpet, Gary Bartz and Carlos Garnett on saxes, Stanley Clarke on bass, and Billy Hart and Airto on percussion – plus a chorus of vocalists on the album's mighty title cut! Tracks are all long, spiritual, and freely exploratory – but never in a style that goes too far outside, or that forgets the joy and love that can spring forth in a forward-thinking session like this one! Titles include "Dance Of Magic", "Give The Drummer Some", "Morning Change", and "Blue". LP, Vinyl record album

Duncan SistersDuncan Sisters ... LP
Earmark/Salsoul, 1979. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
Sweet Canadian disco from the team of Phyllis and Helen Duncan – recorded in a style that features longer tracks, pulsating rhythms, and some of the instrumental flourishes that were stepping out on some of the best Prelude records of the time! The pair trade vocals wonderfully throughout – often with a lot more force and presence than most other female disco groups, especially the trios of the time – and the grooves come from the powerhouse studio team of Ian Guenther and Willi Morrison, who you might know from other projects like Rhythm Heritage or THP Orchestra. Titles include "Boys Will Be Boys", "Love Is On The Way", "You Give Me Such A Feeling", "Sadness In My Eyes", "Rock Along Slowly", and "Outside Love". LP, Vinyl record album

Four FreshmenFour Freshmen & Five Trumpets ... LP
Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good ... $0.99
Strong work from the Four Freshmen – a great album of jazz harmony vocal tracks, done in a similar manner as their classic Trombones session for Capitol. This one's got Dick Reynolds of the group handling the arrangements – with a brace of west coast trumpet players, and a jazzy rhythm section that includes Milt Raskin and Jack Marshall. Tracks have an amazing approach to the material – with the kind of mindblowing vocal parts that Brian Wilson always claimed as an inspiration, and which (dare we say it) are handled here at this early date with more sophistication than he ever used! Titles include "Got A Date With An Angel", "Goodbye", "Laughing On The Outside", "There Will Never Be Another You", and "Give Me The Simple Life". LP, Vinyl record album

Terumasa HinoTaro's Mood ... LP
Enja, 1973. Sealed ... $23.99
One of the first great non-Japanese recordings by trumpeter Terumasa Hino – a smoking little live set from Germany, done at a time when Hino was working at the height of his youthful powers! The mode here is stretched out and open – never too outside, but very exploratory – in the direction that Hino took quite strongly on his Japanese albums as the 70s approached, but performed here in a style that's even more organic than those records. The group is all Japanese – with Motohiko Hino on drums and Mikio Masuda on piano – and added conga at the bottom of the backings almost gives the record an early 70s Impulse Records sort of feel – nice and spiritual, and plenty soulful! Titles include "Alone Alone & Alone", "Taro's Mood", "Black Daffodil", and "Predawn". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Linda JonesGreatest Hits ... LP
Turbo, Late 60s/Early 70s. Very Good ... $4.99
A wonderful selection of work by Linda Jones – one of the greatest female soul singers ever! Linda had a very short career, due to a tragic early death – but her work on record is simply astounding – a rich tapestry of deep soul, well-placed emotion, and masterful handling of just about any song. Even with familiar material, Linda sounded great – taking a song you though you knew, and turning it completely inside out. This set's a great introduction to her work, 8 tracks in all including a number of songs released as 45's: "Hypnotized", "Your Precious Love", "Stay With Me Forever", "I Love You, I Need You", "Let It Be Me", "Not On The Outside", "Fugitive From Love" and "I Can't Make It".

✨✧ Eddie KendricksEddie Kendricks ... LP
Tamla, 1973. Very Good+ ... $5.99
A legendary album from the great Eddie Kendricks – a set that not only has the singer soaring on the kind of sublime old school vocal numbers he always did so well – but one that also has Eddie stepping out into some great dancefloor modes that would have a huge impact for years to come! Kendricks really scores big with the classic "Keep On Truckin" – a tune that's virtually the blueprint for boogie, and which is echoed here by a few other great numbers that really stand out – tunes that preface disco to come, but which also still bear a very strong link to the richest styles of Motown soul! Northern soul legend Frank Wilson had a great hand in the record – penning some of the best cuts, co-producing with Leonard Caston, and handling arrangements with Caston and James Carmichael – and in addition to "Keep On Truckin", other titles include "Darling Come Back Home", "Not On The Outside", "Any Day Now", "Where Do You Go (Baby)", "Each Day I Cry A Little", and "Only Room For Two".

✨✧ Rahsaan Roland KirkPrepare Thyself To Deal With A Miracle ... LP
Atlantic, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $8.99
One of Rahsaan Roland Kirk's last truly fantastic albums – a set that still has all the amazingly messed-up qualities of his best late 60s work – delivered with the honest heart and sense of soul that always make us love his music! The set was recorded for Atlantic in the early 70s, and it's got a wonderful mix of inside and outside playing – a bit more Kirk-unleased overall than some of the more focused experiments of previous records – filled with lots of personality, incredible reed work, and a sound that's spiritual, yet also deeply individual too! Rahsaan plays flute, notes flute, black mystery pipes, E flat sax, and clarinet – and other musicians include Charles McGhee on trumpet, Dick Griffin on trombone, Ron Burton on piano, and Sonny Brown and Ralph MacDonald on percussion – plus a hip string ensemble on some cuts – definitely giving the album a touch of the "Black Classical Music" style that Kirk always claimed was at the root of his work. Side two features the extended "Saxophone Concerto", which has some cool breathing tricks that really let Roland wail – and other tracks include "Celestial Bliss", "One Mind Winter/Summer", and "Ninth Ghost", all of which have a nice dose of spirituality.

KutimangoesMade In Africa ... LP
Tramp (Germany), 2016. Very Good+ ... $16.99
We loved The Kutimangoes last time around, but we love them even more on this sweet second set – a record that, as the title implies, was recorded in Burkina Faso, with a killer sound that really opens up their groove! The music is Afro Funk at the core, but has lots of jazz inflections throughout – and maybe a sense of grit that you're not as likely to find in some of the more polished records of the genre – almost as if the group's reaching out for ready elements outside of the studio setting, and fold them into their rhythms with effortless ease. There's a complexity to the trombone and saxes that is especially nice – richer than the usual horn blasts – and some of the Fender Rhodes lines seem to follow in a similar mode. Titles include "This Ship Will Sink", "Bamako By Bus", "Red Rain", "Tolma", "Nin Gang", and "Ouagadougou". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the booklet.)

Anthony and crew were one of the few groups who actually got better when they moved from the raw indie scene to the slicker major label one – as you'll hear perfectly on this set of some of their best work for the Veep/DCP/United Artists label. Teddy Randazzo handled all the arrangments and production, and his breathy uptown style works perfectly with the band's soulful harmonies. Titles include "Hurt So Bad", "I'm On The Outside (Looking In)", "Our Song", "Get Out Of My Life", and "Going Out Of My Head". LP, Vinyl record album

Teddy Randazzo handled the arrangements and production, and his breathy uptown style works perfectly with the band's soulful harmonies. 10 tracks in all, including "I'm On The Outside (Looking In)", "Take Me Back", "Better Use Your Head", "The Wonder Of It All", "Reputation", "You Better Take It Easy Baby", "Please Go" and "Goin' Out Of My Head".

Love UnlimitedUnder The Influence Of Love Unlimited ... LP
20th Century, 1973. Very Good ... $3.99
Great stuff from the girls who first put Barry White on the map! The record is the group's second – and by this point, Barry had developed that tight snapping drum sound that made his orchestral albums work so well. You'll hear it to good effect on most songs on the LP, which have a great groove that's in the best Barry White mode of the 70s – but which kind of dominates the girls' vocals a bit. Not that anyone should complain that much, as it's the overall package that's always made Barry's albums sound so great – but we do wonder how the group felt when they had to sit out the first track, which was the instrumental "Love's Theme", a song that went onto become Barry's biggest song ever, and which probably sold the album a lot more than the vocal tracks. Still, you can hardly detect a note of disharmony – and the album soars from track to track, through titles like "Under The Influence Of Love", "Say It Again", "Yes, We Finally Made It", and "It May Be Winter Outside".

David MurrayLive At Sweet Basil Vol 1 ... LP
Black Saint (Italy), 1984. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
A really bold step forward for David Murray – a seminal live recording that features one of the hippest big bands you'll ever hope to find! Murray really uses the date as a chance to express the full range of his musical talents – and often shows modes that are more traditional than you might expect, yet which are always touched with an undercurrent of modernism! The musical palette here is quite different than either the outside or inside sessions recorded by Murray with a small group at the time – and he really reaches back through a rich history of jazz in the performance, and updates it wonderfully with help from players who include Baikida Carroll on trumpet, Olu Dara on cornet, Craig Harris on trombone, Vincent Chaney on French horn, Steve Coleman on alto and soprano sax, Rod Williams on piano, Fred Hopkins on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums. Butch Morris conducts – and titles on this first volume include "Lovers", "Bechet's Bounce", "Silence", and "Duet For Big Band". LP, Vinyl record album

Phil OchsPleasure Of The Harbor ... LP
A&M, 1967. Very Good ... $3.99
Was there a more tragic figure in the 60s scene than Phil Ochs? Perhaps, but this is still a wonderful piece of his odd and sad career, a great portrait with his unrelenting political stance still in place, though not as raw as some of his other LPs. More arranged than any of his other LPs, but not without spare moments, the orchestrations still never get in the way of Ochs' occasionally delicate voice or clutter the picture too much. Eight tunes: "Cross My Heart", "Flower Lady", "Outside Of A Small Circle Of Friends", "I've Had Her", "Miranda", "The Party", "Pleasures Of The Harbor" and "The Crucifixion". LP, Vinyl record album

A wonderful reunion of Pharoah Sanders and vocalist Leon Thomas – and a set that captures a lot of the same energy as the pair's previous record – Karma! Thomas' vocals are in wonderful form for the set – stretching out soulfully on the extended classic "Hum-Allah-Hum-Allah-Hum-Allah" – a title that has much of the same grace and power as "The Creator Has A Master Plan. The rest of the players on the date include Lonnie Liston Smith on piano, Richard Davis and Cecil McBee on basses, and Idris Muhammad and Roy Haynes on drums – and unusually enough, each of the double bassists and drummers gets their own channel of sound to work with! The other long track on the album is the extended "Sun In Aquarius" – which is a bit more outside, but still pretty great! LP, Vinyl record album

Kenny Burrell joins the trio of organist Shirley Scott for this sweet little album – a set that seems to burn a bit more than usual for Shirley, probably because of the cool-toned guitar lines from Kenny! The album's got the same laid back feel as other Scott albums of the time, but Burrell really digs in during his solos – adding a bit more bite, and inspiring Shirley to do the same on her own Hammond lines. Bass is by Eddie Khan and drums are by Otis Finch – and titles include "Solar", "The Kerry Dance", "They Call It Stormy Monday", "Nice N Easy", and "Baby It's Cold Outside". LP, Vinyl record album
