Aretha FranklinLaughing On The Outside ... LP
Columbia, 1963. Very Good ... $6.99
Hey, we love this record! It's jazzy, and not at all like Aretha's soul sides for Atlantic – but Aretha's vocals sound wonderful on the record, in a completely different way than on later albums. Arrangements are by Robert Mersey, and they've got a feel that's similar to some of the classic Ray Charles large group recordings for ABC – with slightly churchy backings behind the lead vocals, which are right out front in the set, and almost warmer than on other albums. Aretha sings mellow versions of standards like "Skylark", "For All We Know", "Until The Real Thing Comes Along", and "Where Are You?" – plus the obscure "Mr Ugly". LP, Vinyl record album
(360 Sound stereo pressing.)

✨✧ Little Anthony & The ImperialsI'm On The Outside (Looking In) ... LP
DCP/Veep, 1966. Very Good- ... $4.99
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
(DCP pressing. Cover has ring & edge wear and a split spine.)

Art BlakeyOlympia Concert (Japanese pressing) ... LP
Fontana (Japan), 1958. Very Good- ... $19.99
An excellent live set by the Jazz Messengers – recorded in Paris in 1958, but with a hard heavy groove that's right up there with their best Blue Note work. The group at this time – Blakey, Bobby Timmons, Lee Morgan, Benny Golson, and Jymie Merritt – plays hard, heavy, and straight ahead, with no other interference from outside players – and the track list is a batch of classic Jazz Messenger standards, stretched out a bit longer than usual, with plenty of solo space! Titles include "Moanin", "Justice", "Whisper Not", "Blues March", and "I Remember Clifford". LP, Vinyl record album
(Vintage Japanese pressing!)

Booker T & The MGsMcLemore Avenue ... LP
Stax, 1969. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
The Beatles had Abbey Road – and Booker T & The MGs had McLemore Ave, the main street running outside the Stax studios, and a fitting title for the album that has them playing tunes from The Beatles' incredible Abbey Road album. If you've ever thought that Abbey Road was a soft-rock lowpoint in the Beatles' career, consider how many soul and jazz artists either covered the whole album, performed songs from it, or referenced it in their album covers. This little gem is proof that the compositions already had a life of their own within a short time of the release of the record – as Book and crew take the Beatles' tunes to whole new heights, working them together into a complicated batch of grooves that really pushes past their earlier work on Stax. Who knows, perhaps The Beatles were just the kick that Book needed – we can't ever tell the whole story, but we can say that the record marks a strong turning point for the group, and is well worth having for a variety of reasons. Titles include "The End", "You Never Give Me Your Money", "Because", "I Want You/She's So Heavy", and "Polythene Pam". LP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow label pressing. Cover has some wear & peeling.)

Elton Dean's NinesenseOh! For The Edge ... LP
Ogun (UK), 1976. Near Mint- ... $43.99
There's definitely an edge here to the music – but one that's a bit different than that of some of Elton Dean's contemporaries in the 70s British scene! Dean brings a lot more swing and soul to this record than you might expect – working with a large group, but never letting the players get totally outside – which is a real change from some of the more freely improvising UK ensembles of the period. Dean's own work on alto and saxello are totally great – as are the core rhythms of the group, which come from Keith Tippett on piano, Harry Miller on bass, and Louis Moholo on drums. But we're also plenty happy to hear Alan Skidmore on tenor, Harry Beckett and Mark Charig on trumpets, and Nick Evans on trombone. The recording has a very good "roomy" sound to it that gives it a darker edge than some of the other Ogun recordings from the time – and tracks include "Fall In Free", "Dance", "Friday Night Blues", and "Prayer For Jesus".

✨✧ Tod DockstaderEight Electronic Pieces ... LP
Folkways, 1968. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
Wonderful early electronic works by Tod Dockstader – with a turgid sound that's very reminiscent of some of the early French Musique Concrete recordings from the 50s. Waves of sound collide and clash, opening up dark modern soundscapes that seem to point towards an outside referent – but which end up collapsing under the weight of the machine! Titles include "Piece 1", "Piece 2", "Piece 3", etc. LP, Vinyl record album

Fever TreeFever Tree ... LP
Uni, 1968. Very Good ... $19.99
Late 60s psych from Texas – the self-titled set from Fever Tree – which finds group adapting some outside penned tunes of the day nicely into the good natured psychedelic groove. The arrangements are what make the group special, rolling from soaring pop sounds into harder edged TX school of psychedelia, and back again. Instrumentation includes the kind of core rock sound with keys, harp, flute, cello and more – and the record even sports some string & horn arrangements by David Angel and Gene Page! Titles include "Imitation Situation 1", "Where Do You Go?", "Return Of The Native", "Man Who Paints The Pictures", "The Sun Also Rises", "Unlock My Door", "Come With Me" and more.

King Fleming TrioWeary Traveler ... LP
Cadet, 1965. Very Good+ ... $9.99
King Fleming's third trio side for the Argo label, another variety of standards with a few Fleming originals thrown in for good measure. In the Chicago piano trio tradition of Ramsey Lewis or Ahmad Jamal (who actually followed in Fleming's footsteps), this set covers soulful ballads like "Dearly Beloved" or "I Remember You" and bluesy originals like Fleming's "Darn It" and "Riff A Plenty". Like Von Freeman, King Fleming's is a voice seldom heard outside of Chicago, while quietly influencing many of the more well known stars to come to prominence on the national and international scene.

✨✧ Herbie HancockQuartet ... LP
CBS, 1982. Very Good 2LP ... $5.99
Acoustic magic from Herbie Hancock – proof that he wasn't only cutting electro records in the 80s! The set's got a fluid, open feel that's a bit like some of the VSOP Quintet work – although the group here is slightly different, with Hancock on acoustic piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Tony Williams on drums – plus a young Wynton Marsalis on trumpet – stepping in where Wayne Shorter and Freddie Hubbard left off. The tracks are somewhat sharp-edged and modern, but never in a way that's too outside – more just a continuation of the VSOP mode, with some of the Marsalis love of darker colors and tones. The double-length set has plenty of room for long solos – and titles include "Well You Needn't", "Round Midnight", "Clear Ways", "A Quick Sketch", "The Eye Of The Hurricane", "Parade", "The Sorcerer", "Pee Wee", and "I Fall In Love Too Easily".

Millie JacksonFeelin' Bitchy ... LP
Spring, 1977. Very Good ... $5.99
Millie Jackson's feelin bitchy – and letting a whole new side of her talents show! After the sweet southern soul sound of her early recordings, the Jackson style takes a sharp shift here – letting a bitchier side show up more strongly, and really setting the tone for the next great chapter of her music! Some of the set still features the older style production work by Brad Shapiro – but that's also pushed out by a smoother more modern soul feel on most of the record – one that has Millie emerging with a lot more pride, presence, and power than ever – all-woman, and all in control! Titles include the 10 minute Latimore cut "All The Way Lover", which has a great monologue that would even make Latimore blush – plus the tracks "A Little Taste Of Outside Love", "Feelin Like A Woman", "Angel In Your Arms", and the great "If You're Not Back In Love By Monday".

Collectables, Late 60s. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
Great collection that appears to take the best of her hits for the Loma label, as well as the stuff she recorded for All Platinum. Hard southern soul sound, by a lady who's always been overlooked. 20 tracks in all, including "Hypnotized", "I Can't Stop Lovin' My Baby", "Give My Love A Try", "You Can't take It", "The Things I've Been Through", "Make Me Surrender (Baby, Baby Please)", "I'll Take Back My Love", "Fugitive From Love", "Not On The Outside", "I'll Be Sweeter Tomorrow" and "You Hit Me Like TNT".

Veep, Mid 60s. Very Good+ ... $3.99
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

The record's got 2LPs worth of classic harmony vocals – and a track list that includes "Not On The Outside", "Nine Times", "What's Your Name", "Just Because He Wants To Make Love", "I'm So Lost", "Sexy Mama", "Sunday", "I Do", "To You With Love", "Girls", "Love On A Two Way Street", "With You", and lots lots more!

Capitol/Haven, 1974. Very Good ... $9.99
A strange little soul album – produced and written by the team of Dennis Lambert and Brian Potter, with arrangements by Michael Omartian, and an overall sound that's kind of a mixture of soul and more baroque type backings. The whole thing's not bad overall – but it does lack the punch of some of the better Lambert/Potter work from the time. Titles include "I Can't Get Arrested", "Gotta Find A Way", "Blood Brothers", "Once A Fool", "This Heart", and "I Can See The Lovelight". LP, Vinyl record album

About as classic as you can get for late 60s Miracles! Smokey's vocals are in perfect form, and the group still has that 60s falsetto harmony sound, with lots of fragile bits and strong group backing. Includes the huge hit "Tears Of A Clown", plus a motherlode of great originals that make this a no-filler set! Titles include "The Soulful Shack", "My Love Is Your Love", "Don't Think It's Me", "I'm On The Outside (Looking In)", "More Love", and "It's A Good Feeling". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jiri Stivin & Rudolf DasekSystem Tandem (Japo) ... LP
Supraphon/Japo (Germany), 1975. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
Cool duets between Czech reedman Jiri Stivin and guitarist Rudolf Dasek – a set with a lot fuller feel than you might expect! The work is straight, and never too outside – and although there's no drums or bass in the performance, there's an inherently rhythmic sensibility to most numbers – that modal sort of style that Stivin always brings to his reeds, especially on 70s recordings like this! Jiri plays alto, soprano, flute, and a bit of recorder – and there's a dynamic energy to the record that's really wonderful. Titles include "What's Your Story", "Puzzle Game", "Puddle On The Muddle", "Hey Man", and "Shepherd Song". LP, Vinyl record album

Cecil TaylorUnit Structures ... LP
Blue Note, 1966. Very Good ... $34.99
One of a rare few albums done by pianist Cecil Taylor for the Blue Note label in the 60s – some of the most outside work recorded for the imprint at the time! The word "structures" here is perhaps a bit misplaced – as the work has a strong sense of freedom with the soloists – who operate based on a system of energy and impulses described by Taylor in the notes, at a level that's maybe one of his most inventive, ambitious expressions of the decade! The whole lineup is great – with especially strong horn work from Eddie Gale on trumpet, Jimmy Lyons on alto, and Ken McIntyre on alto, oboe, and bass clarinet – and Taylor's piano gets accompaniment from two groundbreaking bassists – Henry Grimes and Alan Silva – plus drums from Andrew Cyrille. Given the lineup, and the format, the whole thing almost feels more like one of the BYG/Actuel avant sessions than Blue Note in the 60s – and titles include "Steps", "Enter Evening (Soft Line Structure)", "Unit Structure/As Of A Now/Section", and "Tales (8 Whisps)".

Leon ThomasLeon Thomas In Berlin ... LP
Flying Dutchman, 1971. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $14.99
A wonderful live performance by vocalist Leon Thomas – and a set that seems to link together both his own excellent solo material of the time, and his key Impulse recordings with Pharoah Sanders! The group here is a small one – with the wonderful Oliver Nelson on alto sax, showing off his more spiritual side here in ways that didn't always happen on other records of the period – in a quintet lineup that also features piano, bass, drums, and some nice extra conga work! Some material has Thomas really stretching out and getting spiritual – as on the remakes of the Sanders numbers "The Creator Has A Master Plan" and "Pharaoh's Tune (The Journey)" – and then he even gets a bit more avant and outside on the track "Umbo Weti", then moves to straighter bebop vocalese on a sweet take on "Straight No Chaser". A great record – and one that really sums up his genius! LP, Vinyl record album

Frank TusaFather Time ... LP
Enja, 1975. Near Mint- ... $9.99
One of the only albums we've ever seen from bassist Frank Tusa – a strangely organic studio session that's filled with lots of space and sound textures! Players on the album include Dave Liebman on saxes, Richie Beirach on piano, and Badal Roy on tabla – and the best tracks have a spontaneous feel, but also one that's not overly jamming, nor too outside. The set includes a great roughly funky number called "Doin It" – which mixes percussion and bass into a spare warmly breaking groove – and other tracks include "Cameo", "String Beans", and "Kristie's Spirit".

✨✧ Stevie WonderJourney Through The Secret Life Of Plants ... LP
Tamla, 1979. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $14.99
Very high concept work from Stevie Wonder! The record is, in fact, about the "secret life of plants" – partially used as a soundtrack for a film of the same name, but also acting as kind of a storybook in itself! Stevie's exploring a wide range of plant life and plant themes on the set – often in a way that has his keyboards taking center stage in little symphonies of soul that unfold like the petals of a flower in the morning sun – and which stand out as quite different from some of his vocal work, marking him as a talented electronic musician in his own right. Many tracks do have lyrics, too – often with themes of growing, seeding, and other garden metaphors that are easily translated to the human experience. Titles include "Secret Life Of Plants", "Outside My Window", "A Seed's A Star", "Race Babbling", "Black Orchid", "Send One Your Love", "Tree", "Come Back As A Flower", and "Ai No Sono".

✨✧ Denny ZeitlinZeitgeist ... LP
Columbia, Mid 60s. Very Good ... $9.99
Pianist Denny Zeitlin is sporting a beard on the cover of this fourth album for Columbia Records – and his music here definitely reflects a bit of a change from his earlier cleaner-cut image! Denny steps a bit outside at times – never to much so to make the album a session of avant jazz, but definitely showing the listener at the start that he's able to stretch out in the same way as some of the more adventurous pianists of his generation – yet really sound best as a master of lyrical understatement, as on his previous few records! Zeitlin's command of chords is wonderful – these blocks of color and subtle sound in his hands – inspired by Bill Evans, but taken in a whole new direction – and set up here in two different trios, with either Charlie Haden or Joe Halpin on bass, and Oliver Johnson or Jerry Granelli on drums. The real star of the show is always Denny, though – holding us rapt on titles that include "The Hyde Street Run", "Dormammu", "Maiden Voyage", "Offshore Breeze", "Mirage", and "Night & Day".

Philips, 1968. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $29.99
Boy, does the heavy slab psychedelic sludge grooves of Blue Cheer ever sound wonderful, even more than 40 years since it originally walked the earth! Outsideinside hit not too long after the classic Vincebus Eruptem, and damned if we can determine why it's not as celebrated as the debut. That fuzzed out stomp of a sound is back in full effect, as are the titanic drums and an overall sound that uses an electric blues influence as a springboard into heavy cosmic space. Includes their ferocious cover of "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" plus "Feathers From Your Tree", "Just A Little Bit", "Gypsy Ball", "Come And Get It", "The Hunter", "Babylon" and "Magnolia Caboose Babyfinger".
