✨✧ Paul SimonGraceland ... LP
Warner, 1986. Near Mint- ... $19.99
Paul Simon's mid 80s landmark – a record that brought together Simon's unique voice and pop folk songwriting skill with South African, Chicano, zydeco other global musical styles – held together by some of the best songs Simon ever put together! With lesser material, this would feel like the well-intentioned "world music" album by an aging star, but Simon transcends that in a big way with catchy, intelligent songs and expert production. Includes "The Boy In The Bubble", "Graceland", "Duanonds On The Soles Of Her Shoes", "You Can Call Me Al", "Under African Skyes", "All Around The World Or The Myth Of Fingerprints" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a very light stain along the bottom.)

Paul SimonStill Crazy After All These Years ... LP
Columbia, 1975. Very Good+ ... $9.99
We've gotta admit, this record sounds a lot better with the passing of time than we might have expected – thanks in part to some totally sweet Fender Rhodes, used often, and in all the best ways to pepper the tunes! Barry Beckett and Bob James handle the keys – and there's even some gospel touches at times, thanks to help from the Jessy Dixon Singers and Chicago Community Choir. And Paul Simon's songwriting is mostly mature – and even on the hit "50 Ways", the drums from Steve Gadd more than make up for any clunk! LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing, with the heavy inner sleeve. Cover has some light wear.)

ExumaExuma II ... LP
Mercury, Early 70s. Very Good- ... $14.99
A perfect follow-up to Exuma's first album on Mercury – and like that one, a really rootsy blend of soul, funk, and other global sounds! Percussion and acoustic guitar dominate most of the instrumentation – just right for the rough-edged vocals on the set – in ways that help underscore some of the more righteous themes in the lyrics! The whole sound is a great summation of the musical journey that Exuma's taken from his Bahamian roots – and titles include "Damn Fool","Paul Simon Nontooth", "Fire In The Hole", and "A Place Called Earth". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a split top seam.)

✨✧ VariousDramatic Funk Themes Vol 3 – Roaring Rare Grooves, Action & Detective Breaks 1972 to 1983 ... LP
Show Up (Germany), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The third and best volume yet in the the Dramatic Funk Themes series – featuring tightly spun action funk from great international sound libraries of the mid 70s to early 80s! The first entry featured funky sounds culled from the British Themes International Music Library and Vol 2 reached further to include great stuff from KPM, De Wolfe and other legendary music libraries. This one digs deeper still into the vaults of Music De Wolfe and KPM, plus Golden Ring, Omnimusic, Selected Sound and other sources – funky themes from Germany, France, UK and the US! It's funky all the way, but these thematic instrumentals flex out pretty broadly – from straight up funky drums, organ and guitar instros to suspenseful chase scene-ready rumblers, tense horn blasts, brass and woodwind textured groovers, clever riffs on disco and more! Great stuff from a series we hope will keep coming out with more! Includes "Nowhere To Run", by Leer Paul Leary, "Prototype" by Simon Haseley, "Contact" by Peter Reno, "Solid Funk" by Dave Patterson, "Staying Power" by Keith Mansfield, "Stuck In" by Danny Edwardson, "Disco King" by Barry Stoller, "Police Car" by Dave Richmond, "XY Patrol" by M Schoof/U Buschkotter and more. 18 tracks on the vinyl version. LP, Vinyl record album
Also available Dramatic Funk Themes Vol 3 – Roaring Rare Grooves, Action & Detective Breaks 1972 to 1983 ... CD 16.99

✨✧ Jackson C FrankComplete Recordings Vol 1 – The Original Album/Peaches & Crust ... LP
Ba Da Bing, 1961/1965. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Stunning work from Jackson C Frank – an artist who's mostly known for his one crucial 60s album on Columbia Records – but who gets a huge amount of exposure here in a full series devoted to his recordings! That legendary self-titled album was issued in 1965 – and has that incredibly personal, incredibly unique feel you get in a rare few records like this – maybe Nick Drake (who claimed Frank as an influence) or Fred Neil – yet like both of them, a completely individual set that will leave you breathless at the end, and frustrated that you've got nothing else to follow it with! The record was produced by a young Paul Simon – who was working in British clubs during the same stretch that Frank was in London – and a young Al Stewart also plays just a bit on the record – another key supporter of Jackson's early music, as was Bert Jansch. Yet even without those famous friends, the record would be more than enough on its own – so years ahead of its time, the record companies never knew what to do with it – which has kept it very fresh over the years – the kind of set that's waiting to be discovered by an elite few. This volume goes way way further than that set too – using it to start things out with – but also including 8 more tracks that have Jackson recording folk standards in 1961, and 5 more songs from the Peach Crust acetate – 23 tracks, in all, 8 never issued before in any form!

Ba Da Bing, Late 50s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock

This second volume includes the two tracks that Frank recorded for the "Blues Run The Game" single in 1965 – then also includes an early Peel Session performance from 1968, plus studio recordings from 1970, 1972, and 1974 – as well as Frank's first recordings in 1957. The 2LP package is super-heavy – and features 14 songs never issued in any other format! LP, Vinyl record album

This third volume captures Jackson at the end of his too-short life – and features sessions for Frank's never-issued second album Marlene – as well as final recordings from 1997, which ended up as his last record before he left the planet all too soon in 1999. A beautiful package – very heavy vinyl, and a super-cool die-cut cover too! LP, Vinyl record album
