✨✧ Little Anthony & The ImperialsI'm On The Outside (Looking In) ... LP
DCP/Veep, 1966. Near Mint- ... $14.99
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
(Mono DCP pressing with deep groove.)

✨✧ Aretha FranklinLaughing On The Outside ... LP
Columbia, 1963. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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.)

✨✧ MandrillJust Outside Of Town ... LP
Polydor, 1973. Used ... 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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a half split top seam.)

✨✧ VariousSoul Oldies Vol 1 ... LP
United Artists, Mid 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Call it what you want, but to us, this is not so much an "oldies" set, as it is a great compilation of soul tunes that were issued on United Artists and some of its subsidiaries. 10 numbers in all, including the excellent Latin groover "Do You Dig It" by Ray Barretto, plus "Tell Him" by The Exciters, "You Got What It Takes" by Marv Johnson, "Bust Out" by The Busters, "Green Mosquito" by Tune Rockers, "Try The Impossible" by Lee Andrews, "Goin Out Of My Head" and "I'm On The Outside (Looking In)" by Anthony & The Imperials, and "A Quiet Place" and "For Your Precious Love" by Garnet Mimms.

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
(White label promo. Cover has a hype sticker.)

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- ... $14.99
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 (Buddah pressing) ... LP
Buddah, 1972. Near Mint- ... $7.99
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

✨✧ Delaney & BonnieMotel Shot ... LP
Atco, 1971. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $9.99
Maybe one of the purest expressions of the genius of Bonnie and Delaney Bramlett – an album that was recorded to feel like it was done in a motel room – with a stripped-down vibe that really gets at the best energy of the pair! Roots rock mixes with blue-eyed soul, gospel piano, and folksy acoustic guitar – often handled with an approach that feels very spontaneous and personal – as if you were a motel staffer standing outside the door of the duo's room, waiting to deliver a meal, but afraid to knock in the middle of a tune! Titles include "Where The Soul Never Dies", "Come On In My Kitchen", "Faded Love", "Talkin Bout Jesus", "Never Sending Song Of Love", "Goin Down The Road Feelin Bad", and "Long Road Ahead".

Milt JacksonVibrations ... LP
Atlantic, 1964. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
While we have never really gone nuts for much of the MJQ's recorded work, Milt Jackson's recordings as a leader outside the group had a more soulful approach than the colder MJQ albums. This set for Atlantic features players like Jimmy Heath and Tommy Flanagan alongside Milt, and has nice buoyant feel throughout, as they run through some nice bop versions of standards and blues. Includes the title track, plus "Sweet Georgia Brown", "Algo Bueno", "Mallets Towards None" and 4 more. LP, Vinyl record album

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. LP, Vinyl record album

KutimangoesMade In Africa ... LP
Tramp (Germany), 2016. Very Good+ ... $13.99
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

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

Love UnlimitedUnder The Influence Of Love Unlimited ... LP
20th Century, 1973. Very Good ... $1.99
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 2 ... LP
Black Saint (Italy), 1984. Very Good+ ... $8.99
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 second volume include "Dewey's Circle", "Roses", "David Tune", "Four Minute Marvin", and "Great Peace". LP, Vinyl record album

Impulse, 1969. Near Mint- ... $34.99
Quite possibly the best-remembered album from Pharoah Sanders' legendary run at Impulse Records – a set that crossed over big, and sold to countless folks who might not have bought a jazz album this hip otherwise! The record was Sanders' first in the wake of Coltrane's passing – and it's a beautiful extended suite of tracks that flows with a sense of grace, power, and majesty that's simply breathtaking – a new level of expression in spiritual jazz – and virtually the blueprint for an entire generation to come! The album features the classic track "The Creator Has a Master Plan" – spanning a tremendous amount of space and time – and featuring Leon Thomas' classic vocals on the lyrics! Thomas also returns on the cut "Colors", which is a bit more outside, and quite free overall – and other players on the date include Lonnie Liston Smith on piano, James Spaulding on flute, Julius Watkins on French horn, Ron Carter and Richard Davis on bass, and Freddie Waits and Billy Hart on drums.

Gene ShawDebut In Blues ... LP
Argo, 1963. Very Good+ ... $24.99
Beautiful! Trumpeter Gene Shaw is one of the most overlooked talents in jazz from this era – and this is one of his greatest albums! After running away from Charles Mingus during the Tijuana Moods sessions (Mingus threatened to kill him), Clarence Shaw moved to Chicago, started using his middle name of "Gene", and started working with a bunch of musicians that were all geniuses in playing and composition – but who never really made a name for themselves outside of the city. This rare Argo album captures that scene perfectly, and features Shaw's trumpet on 8 fantastic original tracks – deftly shifting between modernism and soul jazz, in a mode that's incredibly sophisticated for the time. Many tracks are written by Jim Taylor, the excellent young pianist in Shaw's group – and other players include Herb Wise on trombone, Jay Peters on tenor, Sid Robinson on bass, and Jerold Donavon on drums. Titles include "Debut In Blues", "Karachi", "The Gentle Princess", "Travelog", "Not Too Cool", and "Who Knows". LP, Vinyl record album
