Paul SimonStill Crazy After All These Years ... LP
Columbia, 1975. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
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, including the heavy inner sleeve. Cover has light wear & some aging.)

✨✧ Paul DesmondBridge Over Troubled Water ... LP
A&M, 1969. Used Gatefold ... 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

✨✧ Miriam MakebaSangoma ... LP
Warner, 1988. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
After hitting big success with Paul Simon's Graceland album in the mid 80s, Warners kind of had a little burst of renewed activity in recording the sorts of artists they paid attention to more in the glory days of the late 60s/early 70s record industry boom. Fortunately, Miriam Makeba benefitted from that surge of activity, and was able to cut this excellent album in a style that was far rootsier than any she'd used in years! The record has a pretty spare feel overall, and most tracks only feature vocals and percussion – with some occasional extra instrumentation, and production that's very much in the Ladysmith Black Mambazo mode from the time. titles include "Sabumoya", "Congo", "Icala", "Ihoyiya", and "Embahaceni". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousGumba Fire – Bubblegum Soul & Synth Boogie In 1980s South Africa (3LP set) ... LP
Soundway (UK), Mid 80s. New Copy 3LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Sweet electro grooves from the South African scene of the 80s – funky, soulful sides that are quite different than some of the nation's sounds that were getting bigger global play at the time! The 80s was a time of great worldwide awareness of the political struggles of South Africa and its people – and much of the musical exports were focused on righteous sounds that reflected that moment. Yet back at home, some of the biggest cuts were more playful and party-oriented – maybe provided as a respite from the challenges of society – as very clubby modes were an antidote to the hardship of life in New York. The grooves here are quite far from the sorts that Paul Simon and his compatriots were pushing up north – and much of this music is a fusion of 80s electro soul with more regional elements and maybe a bit of influence from the Caribbean – a bit like the clubby cross-cultural sounds from Paris at the start of the decade, but maybe a bit more gritty and beat-heavy overall. This set's one of the first to really dig deep into this generation for a global audience, and it's presented with the usual sense of care and history we've come to expect from Soundway Records – in a set of 15 tracks that include "My Brother" by The Survivals, "Mind Games" by Stimela, "Wayawaya" by Zoom, "Heartbeat" by Monwa & Sun, "Selallane" by Black Five, "Picnicing" by Starlight, "Africa" by Sabela, "Arrow Dub" by Zasha, "Listen To Me" by General Peter Maringa, and "She's Impossible" by Condry Ziqubu. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Billy PaulFeelin' Good At The Cadillac Club (second pressing) ... LP
Gamble/Philadelphia International, 1968. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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
(2nd pressing on Philly Int'l. Cover has a split bottom seam & some wear.)

SimoneCigarra ... LP
EMI (Brazil), 1978. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $9.99
A great early album by Simone – a set that's very up close and personal – with the sort of intimate feel that we love in music by Joyce! Simone's vocals are nice and light – floating dreamily over backing from a small combo that has a lightly jazzy feel, plus some occasional larger orchestrations from Paulo Cezar Willcox. Elements of the Milton Nascimento generation definitely come into play here – but there's also a looser, less majestic quality to the music too. Gilberto Gil, Luiz Gonzaga Jr, and Nelson Angelo all make guest appearances on the record – and titles include "Cigarra", "Coisas De Balada", "Petunia Reseda", "Medo De Amar No 2", and "As Curvas Da Estrada De Santos". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the heavy inner sleeve.)
