✨✧ Paul SimonGraceland ... LP
Warner, 1986. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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
(Includes the lyric sleeve.)

✨✧ Paul SimonStill Crazy After All These Years ... LP
Columbia, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

Paul DesmondBridge Over Troubled Water ... LP
A&M, 1969. Very Good- Gatefold ... $4.99
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. Very Good+ ... $19.99
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 small seam splits.)

David SanbornSanborn ... LP
Warner, 1976. Very Good+ ... $2.99
A damn great early moment from David Sanborn – a record that really shows the reedman at his best – working some tight solos over soulful backings in the same 70s manner as Tom Scott or Wilton Felder! Like both of those players, David's got the chops to step out in front of the backings strongly – blowing some of his best notes with surprisingly little flourish, and crafting a soulful lead that's supported by work from Hiram Bullock on guitar, Rosalinda De Leon on keyboards, and Victor Lewis on drums. There's a bit of vocals on the album – courtesy of Patti Austin, Lain Groves, Phoebe Snow, and Paul Simon – and titles include "Indio", "Smile", "Concrete Boogie", "Mamacita", and "7th Ave". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a small peeled spot and wide clear tape along the bottom seam.)

VariousBBC Late Junction Sessions – Unpopular Music (180 gram pressing – with download) ... LP
Gearbox (UK), 2016. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $29.99
Even after all these years, the BBC is still a magical place of experimentation and new discovery – as you'll hear in this special release of recordings from the Late Junction programme on Radio 3! The show strives to bring together artists with different backgrounds – and gives them the space and resources to create new music together – sounds that span scenes and styles, while crossing music and national borders – in collaborations that are as breathtaking as they are beautiful! The album opens up with plenty of surprises – and titles include "People Folk" by Tinariwen and Tunng, "Citius Altius" by Simon Fisher Turner and Martin Baker, "Where The Heart Is" by Kate Tempest and Elysian String Quartet, "Piece No 5" by John Paul Jones and Erland Dahlen, "Drilling An Ocean For You" by AGF and Gudrun Gut, "Greenwich Pier" by Ana Silvera and Maya Youssef, and "Talibe" by Diabel Cisscokho, Dadialy Koyate, and Finn Peters.

✨✧ Michael KiwanukaLove & Hate ... LP
Interscope, 2016. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A set that arguably has even more majesty than the debut album from Michael Kiwanuka – and that's saying a lot, given the strength of that now-classic record! Production here is by Dangermouse, Inflo, and Paul Butler – and there's an airiness to some songs that really has Kiwanuka's vocals floating in space – maybe more iconic than before, and held nicely in a balance between open sonic elements and more crispily-focused instrumental touches. Michael uses folksy currents in his vocals that almost recall Nina Simone during her Philips Records years – and titles include "Black Man In A White World", "One More Night", "Love & Hate", "Rule The World", "Father's Child", "The Final Frame", and "Cold Little Heart". LP, Vinyl record album
