✨✧ Michael JacksonThriller (picture disc) ... LP
Epic, 1982. Very Good ... $11.99
Arguably the last true moment of genius in Michael Jackson's career – a record that sold a bazillion copies around the world – and for plenty good reason! Michael's still working here with Quincy Jones – in territory that steps nicely from the Off The Wall groove, into territory that's somewhat more poppy, but still quite soulful overall. And yes, the success of the album meant that cuts like "Billie Jean", "Thriller", and "Beat It" got plenty of play – thanks to both heavy radio and video rotation – but a few decades later, there's still a tremendous amount of depth here – on great cuts like "Human Nature", "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin", and "PYT" – which all hold up nicely! This seldom seen picture disc version has an image of Michael in a leather jacket in front of a purple backdrop on one side, and the image from the album art with Michael in a white suit in front on the other. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ John Carter TrioEchoes From Rudolph's (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Ibedon/No Business (Lithuania), 1977. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A real lost chapter of 70s genius from reedman John Carter – a set done after his better-known recordings with Bobby Bradford, in a style that's much more spacious overall! The material features a trio – with Carter on both soprano sax and clarinet, both instruments he plays with an incredible dexterity and sensitivity in sound – much looser and more open to sudden shifts of inspiration than his music with Bradford – with accompaniment from Stanley Carter on bass and William Jeffrey on drums and percussion! The style is free, but never indulgently so – and Carter finds this way to always reach for melodic moments even at his most intense – creating the kind of magic that few other musicians might with his instruments. Titles include "Echoes From Rudolph's", "To A Fallen Poppy", "The Last Sunday", "Armin", and "Angles". 2CD set adds in a whole disc of extra material from the trio – with a 19 minute "Echoes From Rudolphs/To A Fallen Poppy", and a very long stretch of different improvised passages!

PartnersLast Disco In Paris ... LP
Marlin, 1979. Very Good ... $1.99
A sweet disco set from the late 70s – the only one we've ever seen by the Partners, who we're guessing were some sort of European studio combo! The sound is mighty nice – exactly what you'd guess from the title – the best sort of funky Euro disco style of the time, with some sweet harmony vocals that almost have a Bee Gees vibe – yet never nearly as poppy as their disco tunes! There's a warmth here that marks the Paris in contrast to other European club sounds of the time – and attention to lyrics that goes way past the usual "let's throw a singer at some grooves" – especially on the album's mellower cuts. Titles include "Partners", "Friday", "Dance", "Green Eyes", and "Love Meant To Be". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has light wear.)

Claudja BarryBoogie Woogie Dancin Shoes ... LP
Chrysalis, 1979. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Claudja Barry makes the move from Salsoul to a bigger label – but given that this album, like the previous one, was licensed from the German Lollipop company, the same creative team is in place! The style's nicely stark at time – kind of a better version of some of the poppy Munich disco by bigger acts – with a post-Moroder blend of keyboards and tightly controled rhythms – all topped by sultry vocals from Barry. Titles include "Boogie Woogie Dancin Shoes", "Cold Fire", "Give It Up", "Heavy Makes You Happy", "Nobody But You", and "Boogie Tonight". LP, Vinyl record album

Miquel BrownManpower ... LP
TSR, 1983. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Plenty of Manpower from Miquel Brown– the Canadian club singer who scored big with the classic "So Many Man So Little Time" club cut in the early 80s – then followed it up with this full album of late disco grooves! Brown's vocal approach is in the higher side of the spectrum – and the cuts take off on the style of some of the Canadian disco modes for divas from a few years before – but feature some instrumentation that's a bit more 80s, especially in the keyboards and beats. There's a few older soul touches at times – and the album's produced by Ian Levine and arranged by co-producer Fiachra Trench – usually in a mode that's somewhat poppy and hook-heavy. Titles include "So Many Men So Little Time", "Manpower", "Beeline", "Sunny Day", "He's A Saint He's A Sinner", and "Maybe He Forgot". LP, Vinyl record album

ExposeWhat You Don't Know (3CD set – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Arista/Cherry Pop (UK), 1989. New Copy 3CD ... $18.99
The female pop soul trio was alive and well in the 80s – morphed strongly from its 60s girl group roots and 70s disco chorus mode – to the point where a group like Expose was perfectly poised to take over the top of the charts! That catchy, poppy style is very firmly in place here – mixing the balance of voices with beats in a very nice way – never out to challenge the soul music establishment, but certainly out to win a few new ears, thanks to the upbeat Miami beats in the music. Titles include "Stop Listen Look & Think", "Let Me Down Easy", "What You Don't Know", "When I Looked At Him", "Tell Me Why", "Still Hung Up On You", "Your Baby Never Looked Good In Blue", "Didn't It Hurt To Hurt Me", "Walk Along With Me", "Love Don't Hurt Until You Fall", and "Now That I Found You". 3CD set is filled with a HUGE amount of bonus material – 34 alternate versions, mixes, remixes, and more – some from the many 12" single releases from the album, but a number of previously unissued tracks too!

✨✧ Johannes Bauer & Peter BrotzmannBlue City – Live At Blue City Osaka – October 1997 ... CD
Trost (Austria), 1997. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic lost performance – only recently discovered by Peter Brotzmann in his tape archive – and a long-overdue presentation of a series of live duets with trombonist Johannes Bauer! The pair work together in a way that's almost like the best early spare sets on FMP – really taking the time to find each others spaces and sounds on some of the shorter tracks – while then also blowing us away with their instant sympathy for each other on the leadoff improvisation – which runs for almost a full 30 minutes! Bauer's always been one of the more overlooked phraseologists on the trombone, and he really shines here in the company of Brotzmann's alto, tenor, b flat clarinet, and tarogato – on titles that include "Name That Thing", "Hot Mess", "Poppy Cock", "Heard & Seen", and "Blue City".
