✨✧ Paul SimonStill Crazy After All These Years ... LP
Columbia, 1975. Very Good+ ... $8.99
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

✨✧ UrubambaUrubamba (Warner) ... LP
Warner, 1974. Near Mint- ... $3.99
The flute sound of the Andes gets a bit of a hip 70s twist – in this album produced by Paul Simon, caught somewhere between his version of "El Condor Pasa" and his later South African pop. The group's got a traditional Peruvian feel – pan flutes, percussion, and a bit of guitar – augmented by some larger production touches that expand the sound past the folkloric. Titles include "Campanas De Santa Cruz", "Buena Nueva", "Una", "Canten Cantores", and "Urumbamba". LP, Vinyl record album
(80s pressing.)

✨✧ Paul DesmondBridge Over Troubled Water ... LP
A&M, 1969. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Paul Desmond serves up his own versions of some key tunes by Simon & Garfunkel tunes – with results that are simply amazing! The style here takes all the airy brilliance of the original S&G tunes, and turns it towards a more jazz-based mode – one that has some of the slight Brazilian undercurrents in the rhythms that you'll find on Desmond's previous two albums for CTI! The full arrangements are by Don Sebesky, who brings a great sense of balance to the set – and Herbie Hancock plays some great electric piano, in a group that also features Airto on percussion and Gene Bertoncini on guitar. But the real star of the set is Paul Desmond – blowing with that amazing tone of his – and sliding from tune to tune with effortless ease, in a way that really transforms these tunes in their instrumental readings. Titles include "Cecilia", "Mrs. Robinson", "America", "So Long, Frank Lloyd Wright", and "Scarborough Fair" – all done with a sweet jazzy A&M approach! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ ExumaExuma II ... LP
Mercury, Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 cutout hole and clear tape on all seams.)

✨✧ 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

Ba Da Bing, Mid 90s. 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!

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

Billy PaulFeelin' Good At The Cadillac Club (original pressing) ... LP
Gamble, 1968. Very Good ... $9.99
An excellent early album from Billy Paul – done in a mode that's quite different than his bigger hits of the 70s! The record's almost more of a jazz outing, but with a definite soulful twist – done in this righteous mode that's not unlike some of the best Nina Simone material from the same time – in a way that really shows some of the deeper strains in Billy's style. Billy's singing with a small piano trio, and his voice is rich and soulful in a way that you don't always get on his later recordings – quite powerful even with limited backings, at a level that really blows us away. The set's nearly all covers, but Billy's interpretations are fantastic, and he turns the tracks into something completely different than you're used to – in the same way that Nina Simone and Isaac Hayes were doing at the time with contemporary hits. Tracks include "Bluesette", "That's Life", "Feelin' Good", "Just In Time", and the Kenny Gamble original, "Missing You". LP, Vinyl record album
