Faith Hope & CharityFaith Hope & Charity (RCA) ... LP
RCA, 1975. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Sweet 70s soul from Faith Hope & Charity – a trio who had recorded previously, but who really burst out here at the start of the disco years with some strong studio help from the great Van McCoy! The style of the record isn't really disco, but isn't far off either – as McCoy mixes lively rhythms and soaring strings with the vocal interplay of the trio – who come off much more as a well-formed soul group than some of the other trios of the generation – who were often just doing chorus vocals for the grooves! Singer Brenda Hillard really soars at times – with a lead that sets fire to the tracks nicely – and titles include the classic "Find a Way", plus "Just One Look", "Disco Dan", "Rescue Me", "Little Bit Of Love", "Don't Go Looking For Love", and "To Each His Own".

Jon LucienBelieve In Me – The Essential Selection – Original RCA & Columbia Recordings 1970 to 1976 ... CD
Decision, 1970s. New Copy ... $6.99 7.99
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".

Main IngredientBrotherly Love – The RCA Anthology ... CD
RCA/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $15.99
Stellar work from one of the greatest harmony groups of the 70s – a trio whose music really elevated group soul material to another level – maybe even past the territory of east coast contemporaries like The Moments or Stylistics! There's always something special about Main Ingredient – not just the strong vocals of Cuba Gooding Sr, but maybe the way the group can blend sweet and deep, underground and mainstream – all while holding onto both longtime harmony soul fanatics, and winning over new generations of listeners with their sound! The group really burned strong on RCA in the early and mid 70s – then returned to great strength when they reunited at the start of the 80s, and gave the label some more great material – a huge run of which is featured here in a well-done 2CD set that includes 41 great choices from their catalog. Titles include "I'm Leaving This Time", "I'm So Proud", "Spinning Around", "California My Way", "Looks Like Rain", "Rolling Down A Mountainside", "Shame On The World", "Lillian", "Let Me Prove My Love To You", "Instant Love", "What Can A Miracle Do", "Spoiled", "Think Positive (12" mix)", "Party People (12" mix)", "Summer Breeze", "You Can Call Me Rover", "Girl Blue", "I Was Born To Lose You", "You've Been My Inspiration", "Happiness Is Just Around The Bend", "Make It With You", "I Want To Make You Glad", "Family Man", "The Good Old Days", "Just Don't Want To Be Lonely", "Everybody Plays The Fool", and "Where Were You When I Needed You".

Peggy MarchIf You Loved Me – RCA Recordings From Around The World 1963 to 1969 ... CD
Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $9.99
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".

Charlie RichToo Many Teardrops – The Complete Groove & RCA Recordings ... CD
RCA/Ace (UK), Early 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $19.99 22.99
A great look at a really lost legacy in music from Charlie Rich – obscure sides recorded for RCA Records in the early 60s – done after his initial rush of genius on Sun Records, and before his later commercial success on Epic! Charlie's got one of the all-time great voices in pop music – a richness that easily rivals that of Memphis contemporary Elvis Presley, and which never fully got its due at the time – even though labels like RCA and Smash provided Rich with some fantastic material and production! Charlie's work for Smash has been picked up by the cognoscenti in recent years, and we'd honestly put these RCA tracks right up alongside them – with a similar Tennessee blend of soul and rock, rural and urban – all delivered by Charlie's incredibly charming vocal approach, and recorded with a depth that goes way beyond the usual RCA production modes of the time. There's plenty of currents of soul in the mix – even some New York-styled modes, which really work well with Rich – and this 40 track set is the first time this material has ever been pulled together – long-overdue, and a real treat to our ears! Titles include "Like Someone In Love", "Lady Love", "Nice & Easy", "Big Boss Man", "It's All Over Now", "The Grass Is Always Greener", "Now Everybody Knows", "My Mountain Dew", "The Big Build Up", "She Called Me Baby", "Gentleman Jim", "Christmas Greetings", "All Of My Friends Are Gonna Be Strangers", "Is Goodbye That Easy To Say", "Tragedy", "Ten Dollars & A Clean White Shirt", "Tomorrow Night", and "No Room To Dance".

Toshiko AkiyoshiKogun (Japanese pressing) ... LP
RCA (Japan), 1974. Near Mint- ... $19.99
Brilliantly bold work from pianist Toshiko Akiyoshi – an artist who's really coming into her own for the 70s – stepping out in a big band format that would win her a wide new audience on both sides of the Pacific! The album's one of the first to feature the ensemble co-led with husband Lew Tabackin – a group that features strong work from American players who include Dick Spencer and Gary Foster on alto saxes, Tabackin and Tom Peterson on tenor, Bill Perkins on baritone, Bobby Shew and Don Rader on trumpets, and Charles Loper and Jim Sawyer on trombones. The horns are only part of the picture, though – as the inventive writing and arranging from Akiyoshi is what really makes the album great – a strong sense of painting with sound, while still keeping things swinging – really unlocking all the best elements that had been opened up for larger ensembles in the previous few years. The set features all original tracks that include "Kogun", "American Ballad", "Henpecked Old Man", "Elegy", and "Memory". LP, Vinyl record album

RCA (Japan), 1977. Very Good ... $6.99
A great performance from the Akioshi/Tabackin Big Band's performance at Newport in 1977! The sound here is totally great – hard, focused, and flowing with a magical energy that made this group one of the few large jazz bands to flourish strongly in the 70s. There's almost a Clarke Boland legacy going on here – tightness that's really hard to carry off, but lots of long track that let the key soloist stretch out with boldly-voiced individual tones. Titles include "Strive For Jive", "A-10-205932", "Hangin' Loose", and "Since Perry/Yet Another Tear". LP, Vinyl record album

Straight up, stripped down beats from E Swift and King Tee – plus a couple of very early Madlib tracks – and while more rhymes about booze than we could have imagined in rap, then or now, it transcends the motif big time – it's never too sloshed to raise the bar. Includes "Lik Wit", "Only When I'm Drunk", "Last Call", "Can't Tell Me Sh*t", "Turn Tha Party Out", "Bullsh*t", "Soda Pop", "Make Room", "Mary Jane", and "Who Dem Ni**as". LP, Vinyl record album

Easily the greatest album ever by the Ames Brothers – from the fantastic space age cover, right down to the excellent arrangements from Sid Ramin! The whole thing's done in a swinging hi fi sort of mode – one that really pulls a heck of a lot of range out of the vocals! Tunes dip and turn and soar with all the whimsicality you'd expect from the album's moon scene cover – with a great assortment of space-themed tunes that include "Destination Moon", "No Moon At All", "I'm Shooting High", "East Of The Sun", "Stella By Starlight", "Music From Out Of Space", and "The Starlit Hour".

RCA/Mr Bongo (UK), 1971. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
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

Arista All StarsBlue Montreux ... CD
Arista/RCA, 1978. Used ... $9.99
A sweet session of 70s electric jazz – recorded as a unique live all-star outing by a group of Arista's best jazz players at the time! The group's an octet, but plays together in differing formations throughout the record – with Warren Bernhardt on keyboards, Michael Brecker on saxes, Randy Brecker on trumpet, Steve Jordan on drums, Steve Khan and Larry Coryell on guitars, Tony Levin on bass, and Mike Maineri on vibes – the last of which really make for some of the best numbers on the album! Bernhardt's keyboards are pretty good too – stepping out with a spacious, fluid feel that's never jamming – and more in the open-ended Bob James side of the spectrum, although his overall sound is a lot different than Bob's! Titles include "Blue Montreux", "Rocks", "I'm Sorry", "Floating", "Cloud Motion", "Uptowned", "Love Play", and "A Funky Waltz". CD

Ataraxia (Mort Garson)Unexplained – Electronic Musical Impressions of the Occult ... CD
RCA/Fifth Dimension (Germany), 1975. Used ... $18.99
One of the spookiest albums we've ever heard from moog maestro Mort Garson – way darker and more complex than his Wozzard Of Id or moogy horoscope projects – with a feel that's much more like his legendary Black Mass album! Like that one, there's a fair current of supernatural running through the mix – an early use of the electronics to explore the darker corners of reality, served up with lots of cool 70s occult touches – in a way that's oddly more timeless than some of the later projects of this nature from the industrial generation. Garson's range of tones is wonderful – from fuzzy bassy bits, to sparkling keyboard lines, to lots of spacey sounds in between – and titles include "I Ching", "Tarot", "Deja Vu", "Seance", "Sorcerer", and "Astral Projection".

✨✧ Brian Auger's Oblivion ExpressReinforcements ... LP
RCA, 1975. Used Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
A great later sleeper from Brian Auger – a record that's much deeper and more soulful than some of his earlier work – and done in a soaring style that's really great! Alex Lighterwood sings as much as Auger plays the keys here, but that's ok with us – because he fuses his voice very nicely with organ, electric piano, and moog – creating a spacily soulful quality that's produced with a nice flanged-out style! Some tracks are funky, others are more laidback – and the set's a great illustration of how far Auger had come in just a few years. Titles include the spacey "Thoughts From Afar", the fast-jamming "The Big Yin", a Latin-tinged instrumental "Something Out Of Nothing", plus "Future Pilot" and "Brain Damage". LP, Vinyl record album

Chet Baker SextetChet Is Back! ... LP
RCA, 1962. Used ... Just Sold Out!
One of Chet Baker's rarest albums – and a great one! The session was recorded in Rome in 1962, at a time when Chet's star had fallen quite a bit on the American scene, and it features him working with some of the hippest European players at the time – like Rene Thomas on guitar, Bobby Jaspar on tenor and flute, Amadeo Tomassi on piano, and Daniel Humair on drums. The tracks are longer than those on some of Chet's earlier albums – with an angularity that brings out new modes of blowing on some of his solos. Titles include "Blues In The Closet", "Barbados", "Star Eyes", "Pent Up House", and "Ballata In Forma Di Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

Gato BarbieriUnder Fire ... CD
RCA/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $13.99
An excellent set from the great Gato Barbieri – one of the gems from his earlier years on record, and an album that's very much in the best spirit of his sides for Impulse in the early 70s! There' definitely some Latin currents in the rhythm – not as strongly stated as on his Latin America series for that other label, but still there in the conception – and Gato blows with that sharp, soulful, spiritual tone that we love so much from this period – so different than the later sound of his smoother records. Lonnie Liston Smith is on piano in the group – getting pretty outside at times, as on his work with Pharoah Sanders – and the combo also features lots of great percussion from Airto and Mtume, too. All tracks are nice and long, and very searching – and titles include "El Parana", "Antonico", "El Sertao", and "Maria Domingas". CD

Bobby BareTravelin Bare/Constant Sorrow/Streets Of Baltimore ... CD
RCA/Morello (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 2CD ... $12.99
A trio of early records from the great Bobby Bare – presented here in one 2CD set! First up is The Travelin Bare – on which the young Bobby Bare hits the road – taking on a whole host of travel-themed tunes on this gem of a record from 1964 – and although the approach is maybe a bit different than Bare's classics of the 70s, that amazing vocal approach can't help but make every song sound great! In other words, what should be a gimmicky set turns out to be a surprisingly strong vehicle for Bobby's talents – which really soar out, even amidst the full productions laid down by Chet Atkins – heartbreaking vocals on tunes that include "Long Way To Tennessee", "Down In Mexico", "Sittin & Thinkin", "Lonely Town", "I Was Coming Home To You", "Long Black Limousine", and "When I'm Gone". Constant Sorrow is an album that's a bit young in the career of Bobby Bare, but which already shows the singer taking on some of the newer, fresher modes that would make him a giant in the 70s – including some inspirations from folk music that really set the album apart from some of RCA's more pop-country material of the time! Bare's got this way of singing that's wonderful right from the start – heartbreaking even when he's sounding strong – and deeply personal, even in a way that some of the more serious folk singers of his generation couldn't hope to touch. Bobby mixes up country and folk tunes here, all with that classic RCA 60s production – on titles that include "Delia's Gone", "Don't Think Twice It's All Right", "Just To Satisfy You", "The Deepening Snow", "Times Are Gettin Hard", "I'm A Man Of Constant Sorrow", and "Countin The Hours Countin The Days". Streets Of Baltimore is a record that gave Bobby Bare one of his first great songs with the famous title track – but which also really opens up with pure greatness all the way through – showing a maturity in Bare's voice that's a real change from his music of a few years before! The album's got one of those RCA formulas to the song selection – most are city-based numbers, set around the US – but the approach also gives Bobby some great tunes to work with, especially the kind of double-edged lyrics that always opened up his sense of wit mixed with melancholy. In addition to the classic reading of "Streets Of Baltimore", other tunes include "Houston", "Memphis Tennessee", "Vincennes", "Cold & Lonely City", and "There Ain't No Fun In This Town". CD

RCA/Get On Down, 1972. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $12.99 14.98
A couple of the biggest, funkiest early 70s jams by legendary Spanish combo Barrabas – masters at a wild mix of funk, soul, and rock at this early point – with a raw, percussion heavy grit underneath soulful vocal and funky rhythms! "Wild Safari" works on a few different levels. Starting with steady, stripped down percussion, building with gritty lead and soul chant backing vocals before hitting the unforgettable, floor shaking chorus, then breaking down and doing it again – all the more thrilling on repeat! "Woman" ratchets up the funky guitar groove on the equally tremendous flipside. 12-inch, Vinyl record

RCA/Lion, 1968. New Copy ... $6.99 14.99
A hip little set from The Beat Boys – an Argetine group working in late 60s Brazil, supposedly with a bit of an influence on the sound of Tropicalia! The sound here is a bit straighter than the work of Caetano Veloso or Os Mutantes – a bit in the Jovem Guarda sound of more mainstream Brazilian rock, but with some hipper influences too – including a strong Beatles influence that makes for some great harmonies on the vocals, and instrumentation that really pushes beyond the standard straight Anglo rock modes of the time. Instrumentation features some fuzzy guitars, which are occasionally a bit tripped-out – plus organ, bass, and drums – all topped by echoey vocals from the group. Titles include "O Meu Tamborim", "A Time For Remembrance", "A Felicidade", "Wake Me Shake Me", "Sempre Esperando", "Aria Para A Corda Sol", and "Era Uma Menina".

Art BlakeyNight In Tunisia/Play Lerner And Loewe ... CD
Collectables/RCA, 1957/1958. Used 2 CDs ... $6.99
2 of Art Blakey's rare late 50s RCA sides on one CD! Night In Tunisia is not to be confused with the Blue Note album of the same name – and is instead an obscure late 50's lineup of the Jazz Messengers that included Jackie McLean, Johnny Griffin, and Bill Hardman. 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 long cuts "Theory Of Art", "Couldn't It Be You?", "Evans", and "Off The Wall". The Lerner & Loewe album is equally rare, with the same lineup – and features the group completely transforming showtunes like "I Could Have Danced All Night", "Almost Like Being In Love", "On The Street Where You Live", and "There But For You Go I". Hard bop – and very swingin! CD

✨✧ Joao BoscoCaca a Raposa ... CD
RCA (Brazil), 1975. Used ... $12.99
Maybe one of the best-remembered albums from the legendary 70s run of Joao Bosco – a set that manages to bring together jazzy instrumentation, samba rhythms, folksy elements, and a whole new level of songwriting – all in a blend that beautifully announces Bosco's genius to the world! There's a level of expression here that rivals Caetano Veloso or Ivan Lins – and like those giants of Brazilian music, the sound here is almost Bosco's genre unto itself – a wonderfully strong expression of new ideas, done in close collaboration with songwriter Aldir Blanc. Cesar Camargo Mariano handles arrangements and keyboards – which makes for more than a few jazzy and groovy moments – especially on the cuts "Nessa Data" and "Casa De Marimbondo", plus the classic "Kid Cavaquinho".

Joao's one of those Brazilian singers that's always able to grab us, even though we can't understand the language – and there's a personal quality to the performances here that's really great – a great balance that really makes for a vibrant set, even when things are intimate. The set appears to compile tracks together from other albums – and titles include "Kid Cavaquinho", "O Bebado E A Equilibrista", "Dois Pra La Dois Pra Ca", "Caca A Reposa", "De Frente Pro Crime", "Falso Brilhante", "Agnus Sei", "O Rancho Da Goiabada", and "Bijuterias".

David BowieAladdin Sane ... LP
RCA, 1973. Near Mint- ... $29.99
One of our favorite David Bowie albums ever! Aladdin Sane was a real turning point for Bowie – recorded on the heels of the tremendously popular Ziggy Stardust album, but really pushing the boundaries past the more straight-ahead rock and glam of that record. Instead of just sitting on his laurels, Bowie tripped out into a wilder, weirder world with this one – mixing together elements of some of the baroque arrangements of early records, with the meaner leaner sound of the 70s – populating the songs with freaks, weirdos, and odd characters that gave the whole thing a really creepy edge. The whole thing's an oft-overlooked gem that, to us, is truly one of Bowie's most magical moments – and titles include "Drive In Saturday", "Panic In Detroit", "Aladdin Sane", "Watch That Man", "The Jean Genie", "The Prettiest Star", "Time", and "Lady Grinning Soul".

Other tracks run from the Ziggy years onward – and include another great single, Bowie's take on "Oh You Pretty Things" – which was more famously recorded by Mott The Hoople, although written by Bowie – plus "Aladdin Sane", "Starman", "1984", "Ashes To Ashes", "Sound & Vision", "Fashion", "Wild Is The Wind", and "DJ".

Less of a full-on soundtrack by Bowie than a collection of work from some of his best albums of the mid and late 70s – pulled together to provide a musical backdrop for the film Christiane F! The versions here are supposedly alternate ones, but we're thinking that's just hype – because they sound pretty darn close to the album versions. But that's ok with us, because the tunes are all great – well-chosen work pulled from the incredible stretch that includes Bowie's legendary Berlin trilogy. Titles include "TVC 15", "Heroes", "Boys Keep Swinging", "Sense Of Doubt", "Station To Station", "Warsawza", "Stay", and "V2 Schneider". LP, Vinyl record album

One of the three great collaborations between David Bowie and Brian Eno – and possibly the ultimate statement from his years in Berlin! The album's got some tunes that still show some of the guitar power of the early 70s Bowie – but it's also got some of the beautiful spacier moments brought forward on Low – and which are every bit the Brian Eno of Another Green World. The balance is beautiful – stark and dark on one half, then airy and spacious on the next – handled without any sense of gimmickry, and a bold mainstream experiment that still resonates strongly today. Titles include "Beauty & The Beast", "Joe The Lion", "Heroes", "Sons Of The Silent Age", "Blackout", "V-2 Schneider", "Sense Of Doubt", "Moss Garden", "Neukoln", and "The Secret Life Of Arabia".

The brilliant consummation of Bowie's late 70s years in Berlin – a record that showed he could take the experiments in sound he was crafting with Brian Eno, and turn them back into the kind of creepily catchy rock tunes that first made him a legend! Eno's help on the record is still quite strong – heard very well in the record's use of odd electronics and exotic themes – of a sort that Eno would later explore on his own with David Byrne. But the real charm here is pure Bowie – with an unabashed flair for a dramatic lyric, a well-chosen use of a heavier guitar, and a sense of personality and poise that makes the record one of his most unified ever!

It's almost like Bowie's shaking off all the confused stardom of the previous parts of the 70s – and is stepping forward as a new being from a new space – cleaner, leaner, and simpler than before – but hardly evacuated of soul at all, certainly not as much as you might guess from the Man Who Fell To Earth image on the cover.

David Bowie back in costume at the end of the 70s – but informed enough from his Berlin trilogy that he's coming at things quite differently here! The album's a great summation of the sounds on Low, Heroes, and Lodger – taken almost back to some Ziggy Stardust and Space Oddity territory, but in ways that are a bit leaner, and more focused. Even more impressive, though, is the near-complete absence of other 1980 elements in the set – hardly any influences from punk or new wave, no post-disco dancefloor elements – just deeply unique Bowie all the way through, and proof that he could always find his own space in music when he wanted! Titles include "Up The Hill Backwards", "Teenage Wildlife", "Scream Like A Baby", "Because You're Young", "Scary Monsters", "Ashes to Ashes", "Fashion", and "Kingdom Come". LP, Vinyl record album

David BowieSpace Oddity ... LP
RCA, 1969. Very Good ... $29.99
An amazing departure for David Bowie – hardly the kind of record you would expect from his oboe-filled tunes of a few years before – and really the start of the groundbreaking, earthshaking, reinventionist era of his genius! There's a spacious, soaring quality to Space Oddity that's every bit the kind of magical music you might hope for in a set recorded at the close of the 60s – a shift into new modes, new sounds that seem to suck up all the best influences in rock from the previous few years, but fuse it into a new cosmic vision for the next decade. And while others might stumble on cliche with the weight of such a task, Bowie pulls it off brilliantly – mixing his fuzzier feelings with some of his more personal leanings – and showcasing a newly deep sense of songwriting here that's really amazing. Some tunes have the sensitivity of work on Hunky Dory, while others burn with the fire of Man Who Sold The World – all in a balance that never sounds schizophrenic at all. Titles include"Space Oddity", "Memory Of A Free Festival", "God Knows I'm Good", "Cygnet Committee", and "Unwashed & Somewhat Slightly Dazed". LP, Vinyl record album

The second half of Bowie's Thin White Duke years in the studio – a record that's more cool and condense than his Young American album – but equally sublime in its own sort of way! The format here is much more compact – with a small group working alongside Bowie, still with some currents of Philly soul – but also some of the darker tones that would come to the forefront during the Berlin years after this album's release – a mode that's maybe hinted at by the Man Who Fell To Earth image on the cover. A few tracks are long, and build up beautifully – showing a new sort of subtlety from Bowie – and titles include the classic "Station To Station", plus "Golden Years", "Word On A Wing", "TVC 15", "Stay", and "Wild Is The Wind".

A brilliant soul album! That's right, we said SOUL album! Bowie was at the height of his Ziggy Stardust fame when this one was recorded – a drastic left-turn in styles, forged during a point in his American tour when he could take a break, head to Philly, plug in at the Sigma Sound Studios, and come up with some fantastic little soul tunes, thanks to help from Luther Vandross! The album sparkles with the best sound of Luther's early work – and you'll hear more than a bit of Luther's work on his own, and his tunes with Gregg Diamond on the set. Features the sublime tracks "Win", "Fascination", "Right", "Somebody Up There Likes Me", and "Can You Hear Me" – as well as the hits "Young Americans" and "Fame". LP, Vinyl record album

Great stuff – and the kind of group that would be easy to overlook if the tracks weren't so good! The Brothers were clearly some sort of a studio project designed to cash in on the disco craze – and they included Bhen Lanzaroni on keyboards, who'd also recorded a bit on his own as a studio player. The record's not hard-hitting funk, but it does have a smooth instrumental disco sound that's got a lot of nice jazzy touches, and which never lapses into the cliches you'd expect. The band were hip enough to cover Antonio Carlos & Jocafi's classic Brazilian groover "Voce Abousou", done here with vocals on the chorus only – and they come up with some nice numbers on their own, like "Make Love", "Brothers Theme", "Don't Stop Now", and "Under The Skin".

The backings are somewhat large, but quite spacious too – opened up in ways that allow for plenty of space for the vocals – sung by Chico in that warm, raspy tone we always love so much. There's a nice degree of acoustic guitar right upfront – played by Luiz Claudio Ramos – but in ways that are different than any sort of bossa use of the instrument – more to just underscore a nicely fragile quality in the singing. Titles include "Baticum", "Trapacas", "Uma Palavra", "Valsa Brasileira", "Tanta Saudade", and "A Mais Bonita". LP, Vinyl record album

"Hang Tight" is less familiar, but an equally funky number – with the bassline stepping up and down in this really great way – alongside sweet keyboards and vocals! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Burnier & CartierBurnier & Cartier (1974) ... CD
RCA/Mr Bongo (UK), 1974. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
One of the few albums ever cut by the team of Octavio Burnier and Claudio Cartier – a mid 70s Brazilian duo with a sweet and soulful finish! Both Burnier and Cartier play guitar – but not in a spare, Baden Powell-like way. Instead, they've got a sound that's very full – touched with much of the Brazilian fusion sound of the 70s, and given a smooth electric finish that makes for some very nice grooves. The guitar work is excellent – jamming away on tracks that also sport keyboards, electric bass, and vocals by a variety of singers – including Roberto Quartin, Alberto Arantes, Sonia Burnier, and Jaime Luiz. Titles include "Marcante", "Europanema", "Lembrando Ed Kleiger", "Lejos De Mi", "Aldeia Global", and "So Tem Lugar Pra Voce". CD

Gary BurtonDuster ... LP
RCA, 1967. Very Good ... $7.99
A really incredible record from the great Gary Burton – a key 60s set that definitely has him finding a musical voice that's all his own – a way of using the vibes that nobody else had ever attempted before! The instrument is a flurry of chromatic beauty – tones and light exploding at each new twist and turn – mixed here with superb work from a quartet that includes Larry Coryell on guitar, Steve Swallow on bass, and Roy Haynes on drums! The names of the players alone might be enough to give you a picture of the sound – but let us go onto say that the overall approach is amazing – angular, jagged, and more rhythmic than melodic – but equally swinging, in sort of a modal way. Tracks include "Ballet", "One Two 1234", "Liturgy", "Response", "General Mojo's Well Laid Plan", and "Sweet Rain". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label stereo pressing with deep groove. Cover has a split top seam, clear tape on the spine & bottom seam, and some sticker residue.)

Gary BurtonSomething's Coming/Groovy Sound Of Music/Time Machine ... CD
RCA/BGO (UK), 1964/1965/1966. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99
A trio of excellent Gary Burton albums from the 60s – collected together in a single set! Something's Coming is the launch of vibist Gary Burton as a leader – a force in jazz that would continue strongly for decades to come! At the time of the record, Burton had already been making waves as a session player on the Nashville scene – where RCA had some especially strong ears – but he's launched here in a mode that's quite far from those roots, and already filled with those modern, chromatic modes that would have Burton pushing the sound of the vibes forward strongly throughout his career – even on an early record like this! The group is very like-minded, and well-chosen – players who are spacious and modern, but never too much so – a quartet with Jim Hall on guitar, Chuck Israels on bass, and Larry Bunker on drums. Titles include "Melanie", "Careful", "Six Improvisatory Sketches", "Something's Coming", and "Little Girl Blue". Next up is a very cool take on the music of Sound Of Music – handled with some help from arranger Gary McFarland, in a way that really unlocks the modal potentials of the tunes! As you might expect from the revolutionary vibist Gary Burton, the approach here is quite different than the usual jazz album of Broadway material – and instead, both Burton and McFarland do a heck of a lot to open up the coolest potential of the songs – as they bring in other hip players who include Bob Brookmeyer on trombone, Phil Woods on alto, Joe Puma on guitar, and Steve Swallow on bass. Titles include "An Ordinary Couple", "Sixteen Going On Seventeen", "Do Re Mi", "Edelweiss", and a great take on "My Favorite Things". Time Machine is filled with beautiful sounds from Gary Burton – a seminal 60s session that really has the vibist coming into his own, and finding that new path towards musical expression that would flower even more strongly in the 70s! The album has Burton really strengthening up his sense of chrome – matching the boldness of other important 60s vibes players on the rise – like Karel Velebny or Bobby Hutcherson – but also working this really special magic in the way he lets each note resonate in the air – often with a much longer decay on the sound than the actual moment of its creation! Burton also plays a bit of piano on the record, overdubbed with his vibes – but in a way that's quite different than the vibes/piano combo of earlier acts – like the MJQ, or George Shearing Quintet – thanks to work from Steve Swallow on bass and Larry Bunker on percussion. Tracks include "Six Nix Quix Flix", "The Sunset Bell", "Deluge", "Chega De Saudade", and "Falling Grace". CD
