Art Blakey & The Jazz MessengersTheory Of Art (aka A Night In Tunisia – RCA) ... CD
RCA/Bluebird, 1958. Used ... $3.99
A reissue of one of Blakey's best non-Blue Note sides from the late 50s, a killer album that sports a great lineup of the Jazz Messengers that included Jackie McLean, Johnny Griffin, Bill Hardman, Sam Dockery and Spanky DeBrest. The three of them sparkle and shine with the sort of brilliance that Blakey's leadership brings to the group, and they wail their way through a 13 minute long reading of "Night In Tunisia", with excellent solos all around, and the other cuts "Theory Of Art", "Couldn't It Be You?", "Evans", and "Off The Wall". This reissue adds the bonus numbers "Social Call" and "A Night At Tony's" recorded for RCA at very nearly the same time, but with a larger group that features Wynton Kelly in place of Sam Dockery, plus the addition of Lee Morgan, Sahib Shihab, Melba Liston and Cecil Payne in the horn section.

✨✧ ByrdsEight Miles High (mono)/Why (mono) – Rare RCA Studios Versions ... 7-inch
Columbia/Sundazed, 1965. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $8.99 9.98
The very rare first recordings of these tunes – mono, done in the RCA Studios – legendary in status, and called by some to be the best versions ever! "Eight Miles High" is especially nice – very moody, and slightly slower too – that great edge The Byrds were really getting at the time! Limited pic sleeve single too! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Paul Desmond with Jim HallComplete RCA Victor Recordings (5CD set) ... CD
RCA/Victor, Early/Mid 60s. Used 5CD ... $49.99
Genius in one of its purest forms! Paul Desmond's alto sax was honed to perfection by the time of these recordings – worked out through fame in the Dave Brubeck Quartet years of the late 50s and early 60s, but also relaxed in a confidence that makes these sides completely majestic, and utterly fantastic! Desmond's tone and approach are languid – but in a way that's incredibly compelling: notes just floating out of the horn, almost effortlessly, seeming not to come from Desmond himself, but to him, gathered together by his warmth and good wit, honed in further by the spare and gentle guitar work of the great Jim Hall. This package is the finest tribute we could think of to their brilliant work together – a wonderfully-done 5CD set, with a lovely slipcase and book, done in a way that retains the structure of the original albums, yet also adds in bonus tracks. There's a whopping 55 cuts in all – and every single one of them's a gem! CD

Evelyn Champagne KingComplete RCA Hits & More ... CD
RCA/Real Gone, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 19.99
A fantastic run of music – all tracks recorded by Evelyn Champagne King for RCA in the late 70s and early 80s – a time when she was continually advancing her groove, thanks to help from studio talents like T Life, Kashif, and Leon Sylvers III! The music here starts in the early days of disco, and moves through a great range of upbeat modes that usually suit King's vocals the best – the kind of ebullient, high-stepping sounds that really seem to set the singer free! 2CD set features a total of 26 tracks – a good number of which are non-LP mixes from singles – and titles include "Back To Love", "Shame (12" mix)", "Teenager (12" version)", "Betcha She Didn't Love You", "Just For The Night", "Till Midnight (12" rmx)", "Aquarius/Let The Sun Shine In", "Music Box (12" mix)", "Dancin Dancin Dancin", "I'm So Romantic", "Out There (12" mix)", "High Horse (rmx)", "Out Of Control (12" rmx)", "Shake Down (rmx)", "Action", "Let's Get Funky Tonight (12" mix)", "Your Personal Touch (dance version)", "I Don't Know If It's Right (12" mix)", "I'm In Love (12" mix)", and "The Spirit Of The Dancer"> CD

Jon LucienBelieve In Me – The Essential Selection – Original RCA & Columbia Recordings 1970 to 1976 ... CD
Decision, 1970s. New Copy ... $6.99 15.99
A wonderful compilation of some of Virgin Islands-raised soul jazz great John Lucien's better material – culled from his ever-fresh records for RCA and Columbia throughout the 70s – really incredible stuff that works it's magic every time we hear it, yet has never been particularly easy to find in print over the years, especially in the US! Lucien's island upbringing is a distinctively great part of is charm, with a breezily melodic vibe, often with some lovely string accents – always with a spirtual soul resonance carried by his charismatic voice. This 17 track snapshot of his RCA and Columbia ouvre is very nicely selected – and the titles include ncludes "Dindi", "Find Yourself A Love", "Who Will Buy", "Lady Love", "Luella", "Esperanza", "Listen Love", "World Of Joy", "Creole Lady", "You Are My Love", "Maiden Voyage"., "Rashida", "Who Will Buy?", "Motherland", "Would You Believe me", "Hello Like Before" and "War Song".

✨✧ Peggy MarchIf You Loved Me – RCA Recordings From Around The World 1963 to 1969 ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $13.99
Peggy March is a singer with a surprisingly varied career – an artist that most folks know for only her early little girl pop fame – but one who went onto record a very unusual range of sounds as the 60s moved on! RCA was her label, and while she never hit the heights of the charts after her early hit, the company was more than committed to allowing Peggy's sound to grow and flourish – especially on the international scene, where she not only recorded tracks in other languages, but also picked up new non-American songs, and served up very cool English-language versions! This set really does a great job of moving past the early stuff, and looking at this lost later legacy of March's music – sounds that we'd easily compare to the hipper 60s material by Jackie DeShannon, even though Peggy didn't write her own material. The range of studio talents really keeps things interesting – there's even one track arranged by Ennio Morricone – and titles include "He's Back Again", "If You Loved Me", "He Couldn't Care Less", "Watch What You Do With My Baby", "Johnny Cool", "Kilindini Docks", "Eh Bravo", "Passo Su Passo", "Too Long Away", "Wasurenaiwa", "Ne Joue Pas Les Enfants", "He Couldn't Care Less", "This Heart Wasn't Made To Kick Around", "Can't Stop Thinkin About Him", and "Fool Fool Fool".

OdysseyOdyssey (RCA) ... LP
RCA, 1977. Very Good+ ... $1.99
A crossover classic from the late 70s – a record that was born in the clubs, but bred in the mainstream – and the start of a very good relationship between Odyssey and RCA! The album will forever be known for its classic cut "Native New Yorker" – a seminal groover that balances disco rhythms with mainstream 70s soul – but overall, the record's got even more to offer than that gem – including some surprisingly well-done mellower cuts that really make great use of the vocals of Lillian and Louise Lopez. Production is by Sandy Linzer and Charles Calello – the latter of whom is clearly right at home with the groovers – and in addition to "Native New Yorker", other cuts include "Ever Lovin Sam", "You Keep Me Dancin", "Thank You God For One More Day", "Weekend Lover", "Easy Come Easy Go", and "Golden Hands".

Diana RossRoss (RCA) ... CD
RCA/EMI (Japan), 1983. Used ... $9.99
One of the most well-crafted Diana Ross records of the 80s – thanks to heavy production work from Gary Katz, who's best known for his classic run with Steely Dan! The music has a depth that goes past some of the more crossover modes of Diana's earlier records – warmer touches of jazz on keyboards at a few points, and a way of hitting a musical flow that really makes Ross sound even more sophisticated and mature! Ray Parker Jr also adds in a few poppier moments, but we can really hear Katz's touch on the album overall – smooth, but never slick – on a run of tracks that includes "Pieces Of Ice", "You Do It", "Love Will Make It Right", "Up Front", "Let's Go Up", "That's How You Start Over", and "Girls".

Zager & EvansIn The Year 2525 – The RCA Masters 1969/1970 (2525/Zager & Evans/bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/Tune In (UK), 1969/1970. New Copy ... $9.99
Two RCA classics from Zager & Evans – back to back on a single CD, with bonus tracks too! 2525 is the lasting classic from the team of Denny Zager & Rick Evans – a pair who might have been more folksy popsingers a few years before, but who stand out here in a compelling blend of groovier modes! The title track to the album's their massive hit – an odd end-of-decade musing on the future – and other tracks here often follow in a similar blend of full orchestrations and tighter rhythms, underneath both solo vocals and chorus trading from the pair. There's a few rootsier moments – almost a country pop influence – and orchestrations are by Bobby Christian. Titles include "In The Year 2525", "I Remember Heide", "Fred", "Cary Lynn Javes", "Less Than Tomorrow", "Fred", "Taxi Man", and "In The Land Of Green". Zager & Evans has the pair stepping out into some headier territory than before – almost a space inspired by their previous 2525 hit, used here to push their other music into the realm of cooler sounds! Some tracks are conventional pop, but others have nice little elements bubbling through – odd percussion, hints of electronics, and more – all set to orchestrations from Bobby Christian that occasionally have a funky undercurrent. There's some political themes that come off great – almost with the same charm as The Four Seasons on their Genuine Imitation Life Gazette album – and titles include "Reginald Ludwig", "Overture", "The Candy Machine", "The Plastic Park", "Mister Turnkey", "Cruches", and "Listen To The People". CD features four bonus tracks – "Little Kids", "Yeah 3 Squared", "Help One Man Today", and "Mr Turnkey (censored)". CD

Manny AlbamJazz Workshop/Drum Suite ... CD
RCA/Lonehill (Spain), 1955/1956. Used ... $8.99
Great early work from arranger Manny Album – 2 albums back to back on one CD! First up is Manny's entry in RCA's Jazz Workshop series – a set of tunes that are shorter, and arguably a bit more modern than some of Albam's later work – tracks done definitely in that Jazz Workshop blend of west coast cool and east coast modern – with players that include Bob Brookmeyer, Nick Travis, Urbie Green, Billy Byers, Hal McKusick, Al Cohn, and Thad Jones. Titles include the Albam originals "Headstrong", "The Changing Scene", "The Turning Point", and "Intermezzo" – plus "Charmaine", "Royal Garden Blues", and "Anything Goes". Next up is The Drum Suite – hard-swinging big band tracks, with an emphasis on drums! The album is a suite of six tracks – all written by either Manny Albam or Ernie Wilkins, both of whom arrange the groups on the set. Manny and Ernie were two of the more soulful arrangers of their day – and they get some strong performances out of the groups, letting players like Conte Candoli, Hal McKusick, Al Cohn, and Freddie Green open up in longer tracks driven to intensity by some great drum work. Titles include "Skinning The Valves", "Dancers On Drums", "Bristling", and "The Octopus". CD

AltonaAltona ... CD
RCA/Long Hair (Germany), 1974. New Copy ... $18.99
A great album from a time when the German prog scene was getting a bit tighter than before – going for shorter tracks and more focused instrumentation – but all without losing any of the sharpness that first got them going! There's lots of jazzy changes at the core of the album – a fast-moving mix of saxes and guitar, driven by bass and drums – by a group that features Wolfgang Wulff and Michael Von Ronn on tenors, plus Karl Heinz Blumenberg on soprano and baritone, plus vocals as well. The strong use of saxes really makes the music great – even when the guitars hit some harder rock moments – and titles include "Cocopus", "Uberlandfahrt", "7/4", "Hide Yourself", "Frustration", and "Boulevard".

Ann MargretOn The Way Up ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1961. Used ... $9.99
One of the most respectable of Ann-Margret's 60s sides for RCA – an early effort that features some tunes recorded in Nashville with Chet Atkins, who gives the lady a nicely countrified bounce! Side one is the "rock side", and has Ann doing some especially nice numbers in this mode – never too over the top and with electric bass setting a nice tone for the tunes. Dick Pierce also handles some arrangements on the set too – a bit more in the usual Ann-Margret mode, but still never too over the top. Titles include "Oh Lonesome Me", "Slowly", "What Do You Want From Me", "I Just Don't Understand", "His Ring", and "Could It Be". CD

Ann Margret/Marty PaichSongs From The Swinger & Other Swingin Songs/Pleasure Seekers ... CD
RCA/El (UK), 1965/1966. New Copy ... $11.99
Two great Ann Margret soundtracks back to back on a single CD! The Swinger is Ann-Margret at her grooviest – singing the super-groovy theme from The Swinger – perhaps her greatest film appearance ever! There's a mod bounce to the album that goes way way beyond any of Ann's other albums of the period – thanks to arrangements from Marty Paich, Quincy Jones, and Johnny Williams – all of whom put a nice sort of lilt in the backings, and manage to capture Ann at her sexiest. The title tune "The Swinger" is worth the price of entry itself – as it's a catchy, guitar-twanging number delivered in an incredibly breathy mode – supported by 2 great instrumentals from the film as well, "Swinger's Holiday" and "Kelly's Dance". But even on more conventional numbers, Ann's got a great sound here – bringing whole new sexy life to tracks that include "I Wanna Be Loved", "By Myself", "I Just Want To Make Love To You", "More", and "Cute". Pleasure Seekers is a dreamy little soundtrack from Ann-Margret! The record features 4 unique vocal numbers by Ann – including "Madrid/The Pleasure Seekers", "Next Time", Something To Think About", and "Everything Makes Music When You're In Love" – plus instrumental tunes by Lionel Newman. Newman's work is partially snoozy, as it can be when he's scoring a more dramatic film – but there are some nicer groovy bits that really fit the mood of this 60 sex comedy. Nice numbers include the Latinized tracks "Romantic Bossa Nova", "Pleasure Seekers Bossa Nova", and "Zig A Sig A Ding Boom Bah". CD

Ann-MargretAnn Margret – The Definitive Collection ... CD
RCA/Real Gone, Mid 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99 21.98
A fantastic collection of work from those years when singer Ann-Margret first popped up on the American market – young, fresh, and sexy – and willing to do whatever it took to make her music stand out from the pack! Ann-Margret's got a vocal range that's maybe deeper than most of her contemporaries – a lusty growl that makes you feel like she's singing from way down in her toes – with odd bluesy currents mixed with jazzier backings – all in a mode that has really blows away the sultry tones of previous singers like Peggy Lee or Julie London. This 30 track package is a very well-chosen array of tunes from the early RCA years – and includes lots of solo numbers, plus work with Elvis Presley and Al Hirt – on titles that include "Man's Favorite Sport", "Next Time", "Madrid/The Pleasure Seekers", "Mack The Knife", "My Baby Just Cares For Me", "Teach Me Tonight", "The Lady Loves Me", "You're The Boss", "Mr Wonderful", "That Old Black Magic", "Everything Makes Music When You're In Love", "Let Me Entertain You", "Take All The Kisses", "Something To Think About", and "Mister Kiss Kiss Bang Bang".

Fantastic 70s material by this unique Brazilian combo! The sound is perhaps a bit less funky than some of their other records, but the songwriting is excellent, and the production is top notch – in a way that opens up the voices and gives the record a lot more soul than usual. Filled with beautiful tracks of subtle beauty – and titles that include "Dona Flor E Seus Dois Maridos", "Sexto Sentido", "Chuculatera", "Toro De Lagrimas", "Maldita Hora", and "Diacho De Dor", with a guest appearance by Maria Crueza.

RCA/Mr Bongo (UK), 1971. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
An amazing bit of Brazilian funk – and the best album ever by this exciting soulful duo! The record's their first, and it's got a crackling intensity that you don't always find on their other albums – a groove that mixes hard samba with bass-heavy funk, with a sound that makes them one of the most important forces of the Samba Soul generation! There's lots here to love if you like the heavy grooves of Jorge Ben or Tim Maia – but the duo also have a really great approach of their own – especially in the way they'll trade voices back and forth, over grooves that also have plenty of back/forth action too! The record includes the amazing heavy piano/percussion jammer "Hipnose", plus the great cuts "Voce Abusou", "Kabaluere", "Se Quiser Valer", "Deus O Salve", "Nord West", and "Dalena". CD

Brian AugerStraight Ahead ... LP
RCA, 1974. Very Good- ... $4.99
Long lean groovers from Brian Auger and the Oblivion Express group – recorded with a slightly freer feel than some of the group's earlier albums, and an approach that has them stretching out nicely! Brian still sings a bit on some tracks, but there seems to be more of a focus than before on the keyboards – that nicely compressed Auger use of Hammond and electric piano that actually went onto influence a fair bit of American players at the time, in the way that Auger himself had been influenced before by their own earlier work. Rhythms are great throughout – making all tracks funky, in a laidback sort of way – and titles include a remake of "Bumpin' On Sunset", one of the band's best tracks, plus "Change", "Beginning Again", "You'll Stay In My Heart", and "Straight Ahead".

Brian Auger's Oblivion ExpressLive Oblivion Vol 1 ... LP
RCA, 1974. Very Good+ ... $5.99
Really hard-jamming work from keyboardist Brian Auger – the first of a 2-part live set from the US, and easily some of his greatest work on record! The tracks are all very long and stretched out here – an extrapolation of the territory Auger was already exploring on studio sides, taken into even more cosmic realms through the lively nature of the set. As with other records from the time, Alex Lighterwood sings on some cuts – but the real highlight is the keyboard work of Auger – served up on both organ and electric piano, and hitting a great blend of funk, fusion, and keyboard soul! Titles include a really great funky remake of "Bumpin On Sunset", the original break track "Don't Look Away", and the tunes "Truth", and "Beginning Again". LP, Vinyl record album

One of the funkiest tunes we've ever heard from Luis Bacalov – quite different than both the western and sentimental soundtrack material that's usually his better-known work! "Carrefour" has a wicked drumbreak at the start – snapping under cool wah-wah guitar that's very loose and open – while a bassline kicks in and makes the whole thing even better, and organ, tenor, and percussion build as the tune moves on! "Sistemo L'America" has lots of percussion right at the start – funky congas next to more great bass – topped with tinkling piano, sweet flute, and some very nice organ! 7-inch, Vinyl record

RCA (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $9.99
Sweet later work from bossa jazz drummer Milton Banana – a set of tunes delivered as a tribute to Antonio Carlos Jobim, but done very much in the spirit of Banana's best 70s work! The style here is a bit more expansive than Milton's harder-edged sets of the 60s – core trio work expanded with some light strings and woodwinds, in ways that would really please Jobim – who seems to be enjoying himself nicely, having a drink with Milton on the front cover! Many numbers are done in the "pot-pourri" style that Banana used heavily at the time – mixing a few key themes into instrumental medleys – and titles include "Chega De Suadade", "Intuil Paisagem", "Amor Em Paz", "Aquas De Marco", "So Em Teus Bracos", "Este Seu Olhar", "Insensatez", "So Danco Samba", "Dindi", "Demais", and "A Felicidade".
