Johnny ColesLittle Johnny C (2LP 180 gram 45 RPM) ... LP
Blue Note/Music Matters, 1963. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $36.99
A rare session as a leader from trumpeter Johnny Coles – a player who cut some great work in the groups of James Moody and Gil Evans, but who shines even more brightly on this classic Blue Note album! Coles really has an ear for finding the hippest side of his instrument – and he blows with a style that's unlike anyone else we can think of – and certainly far from the mellower tones of his previous leader set for Columbia. This album's got a great mix of hardbop and modern ideas – right up there with the best Blue Note had to offer at the time – and the group's filled with equally hip players who include Joe Henderson on tenor, Leo Wright on alto and flute, Duke Pearson on piano, Bob Cranshaw on bass, and either Pete LaRoca or Walter Perkins on drums. Titles include "Heavy Legs", "Hobo Joe", "Jano", and "Little Johnny C". Very hip, very hard, and very swingin! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ John ColtraneOle (Mono 2LP 45 RPM 180 gram pressing) ... LP
Atlantic/ORG, 1961. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $29.99
A magnificent record from John Coltrane – one of his earliest expressions of unbridled spirituality, and a session that we've treasured for years! As you might guess from the title, there's a slight Latin focus to the record – but not one that has congas and bongos creating choppy rhythms – most just a bold, driving, modal sort of inspiration – of the sort that allows the tracks to open up and flow with some of the genius that Coltrane would show more fully later on Impulse! But honestly, we'd rate this one right up there with the best modal sides on Impulse – as the record's got a sense of flow and energy that's simply breathtaking – with lots of long tracks that let Coltrane open up on tenor and soprano sax, and which also feature work from Eric Dolphy (under the "nom du date" George Lane) on alto, plus Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, McCoy Tyner on piano, Elvin Jones on drums, and Art Davis and Reggie Workman on twin basses! The title track "Ole" runs for a whopping 18 minutes, and takes up all of side one – and side two features the great numbers "Dahomey Dance" and "Aisha". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Big StarBest Of Big Star (180 gram 45 rpm pressing) ... LP
Stax, Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Not the first ever Best Of Big Star compilation, but perhaps the best of we've seen – put together with the partipation of drummer Jody Stephens – featuring most of the very best tracks from all three Big Star LPs, recordings that have hardly aged a day since the early 70s! The carefully chosen tracklist touches on all the bands most rewarding facets, and short of being all of the classic original LPs, we'd be hard pressed to recommend a better entry point the band's classic ouvre. Includes the single versions of "In The Street", "Don't Lie To Me", "September Gurls", "Jesus Christ" "Watch The Sunrise" and "O, My Soul", plus "Thirteen", "I'm In Love With A Girl", "Feel", "When My Baby's Beside Me", "Take Care", "Life Is White", "The Ballad Of El Goodo", "Nightime", "Back Of A Car" and "Thank You Friends".

✨✧ Milt Jackson & John ColtraneBags & Trane (2LP 180 gram 45 RPM pressing) ... LP
Atlantic/ORG, 1959. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An incredible collaboration from John Coltrane and Milt Jackson – and one that gives Milt one of his sharpest records ever! The setting is relatively straight – tenor from Coltrane, vibes from Jackson – plus rhythm from Hank Jones on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Connie Kay on drums. Yet there's also a sense of openness here that you'd hardly ever expect on other records by Jackson – especially his contemporaneous sides with the Modern Jazz Quartet – and Coltrane's tenor gets as much room to roam here as it did on Prestige – really cutting some beautifully soulful, open, and flowing lines throughout! Titles include "Bags & Trane", "Three Little Words", "Be-Bop", "Late Late Blues", and "The Night We Called It a Day". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Brian EnoHere Come The Warm Jets (2LP 45 rpm pressing) ... LP
Astralwerks/Virgin (Germany), 1973. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A record that blew the world away when it was first released – and still continues to delight all these many years later! Brian Eno had first rose to fame in Roxy Music – where his sonic sensibilities and ear for electronic experimentation really added a lot to their initial albums – and here, on his own, he's in somewhat side-stepped territory – mixing things up in the art/glam generation of Roxy and Bowie, but also already showing a darkness that really sets him apart from the pack! The first three songs alone are a hell of a statement from any musician in the 70s, and the titles alone almost get at their impact – "Needles In The Camel's Eye", "The Paw Paw Negro Blowtorch", and "Baby's On Fire" – all songs that offer a rare blend of ferocity and humor that wouldn't emerge elsewhere until the punk movement. Yet Eno's hardly the forerunner of punk, but he's also not glam, metal, or anything else – a supremely impactful artist with this record, completely in his own space – like a rare breed that might include The Velvet Underground, Gram Parsons, or Bowie. Titles include "Needles In The Camel's Eye", "The Paw Paw Negro Blowtorch", "Baby's On Fire" "Blank Frank", "Some Of Them Are Old", "Cindy Tells Me", "On Some Faraway Beach", and "Dead Finks Don't Talk". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Lou Donaldson & The 3 SoundsLD + 3 (2 LP 180gram 45 RPM pressing) ... LP
Blue Note/Music Matters, 1959. Used 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A classic meeting between alto giant Lou Donaldson and Blue Note's crack Three Sounds combo – the great piano trio led by the mighty Gene Harris! The formula was one that Blue Note employed on a number of sessions from the time – and it makes a lot of sense, because the Three Sounds are a very tight rhythm group, just waiting for a strong soloist to front their rolling soulful grooves – in ways that really set sessions like this apart from their standard albums for the label. On this one, the Sounds give Lou a nice tight backing, and he repays the favor by laying down some very tight, very in-the-pocket solos with a good soul jazz groove. Tracks include "Jump Up", "Confirmation", "Smooth Groove", and "Blue Moon". LP, Vinyl record album

ValentinesSound Of The Valentines ... LP
RPM (UK), Late 60s. Sealed (reissue)... $19.99
Early work from a young Bon Scott – heard here years before his fame in AC/DC, as one of two singers in the mighty Valentines – a late 60s Aussie group with a wonderfully groovy sound! At some level, these guys share a lot with the British beat group scene of the period – a love of elements from American soul and R&B, which sometimes means they're even covering songs from the US, but in a more rocking way – but The Valentines also have a cool approach that often has them shifting lead vocal chores between Scott and Vince Lovegrove, but with the other harmonizing along – which gives them a fuller feel, and a mode that almost reminds us of the earliest Bee Gees material from Australia. Scott's already got some of the rawness in his voice that you'll know and love – and titles include "Can't Dance With You", "Every Day I Have To Cry", "She Said", "On My Mind", "Gloria", "Love Makes Sweet Music", "Sooky Sooky", "I Can Hear The Raindrops", and "Why Me".

Damn! This is an amazing rare album from Roy Ayers, and one that, we believe, was only ever issued in Japan! The whole session is made up of 4 tracks, and they were recorded during the time when Roy was playing with Herbie Mann, and recording on Atlantic. This session was cut Direct-To-Disc, and the record plays at 45 rpm for extra high fidelity! The quartet includes Sonny Sharrock on guitar, and Miroslav Vitous on bass. Cuts include "Comin' Home Baby", "Man & A Woman", and "Scarborough Fair". LP, Vinyl record album

Roscoe Gordon was an R&B powerhouse in the 50s – an artist with a huge legacy of music that included records for Vee Jay, Chess, and Sun Records, and a singer who continued to have an impact for many decades to come! Yet Gordon may have sounded best right at the start of his career – on these smoking early sides for the RPM Records label, cut in a beautiful fusion of blues piano, romping rhythms, and some very special vocals from the man himself! The collection presents that material at a level that really blows away some of the cheaper Roscoe Gordon volumes on the market – and titles include "New Orleans Wimmen", "No More Doggin", "Ouch Pretty Baby", "Booted", "Just In From Texas", and "Whiskey Made Me Drunk" LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousWestbound Funk – Masterful Funk From The Detroit Powerhouse Labels Of Eastbound & Westbound ... LP
BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $16.99 22.99
The title's almost redundant – as the words "Westbound" and "Funk" mean virtually the same thing! From the late 60s through the mid 70s, Westbound was one of the key record labels in the sound of raw heavy funk – working with hit groups like Funkadelic and the Ohio Players to craft a sound that laid the blueprint for countless other groups of the time, and also featuring a wealth of obscurer artists with an even harder-hitting sound! The key styles of Westbound and related jazz label Eastbound were heavy and fuzzy ones – picking up off the heady and trippy styles of the late 60s Detroit scene, mixing things up with MC5 guitars, Norman Whitfield bass, and deep underground Tribe-styled jazz touches. This 20 track masterpiece is a brilliant summation of the important Westbound sound – and includes a few hits, some funky 45 classics, and an even bigger number of tracks we might not have heard otherwise! The notes are great, the tunes are super-funky, and the whole thing's one of the best funky collections you could ever hope to purchase. Titles include "You're Messing Up My Mind" by Albert Washington, "Back To Funk" by Robert Lowe, "You Caught Me Smilin" by The 19th Whole, "Conga Man" by King Errison, "Shake Your Head" by Spanky Wilson, "I Love You" by The Motivations, "I Don't Know What It Is But It Sure Is Funky" by Mighty Elegant, "Crazy Legs" by Donald Austin, "Stone Thing (part 1)" by Alvin Cash, "RPM" by Boots, "Funky World (part 1)" by Silky Vincent, "Get Funky Sweet A Little Bit" by Jackie Harris & The Exciters, "I'll Bet You" by Funkadelic, and "Why Not Start All Over Again" by The Counts.

A great dip into the earliest, headiest years of the Grateful Dead – served up here in a set that brings together cuts from their first three albums, plus a single as well! The mix of modes here is still mindblowing after all these many years – and even after all the later cliches of the group, too – as there's a time-spanning, genre-stepping quality from the young lineup of Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Mickey Hart, and others – moving through tracks that include the long "That's It For The Other One" suite, plus "The Golden Road To Unlimited Devotion", "Cream Puff War", "Morning Dew", "Born Cross-Eyed", "Cosmic Charlie", "China Cat Sunflower", and "St Stephen" – plus the original 45 rpm single mix of "Dark Star" – quite different than all the long-jamming takes from later years.

A dub landing of massive proportions – served up here on some classic early 80s work by Scientist, who's really making magic in the studio with the sounds of the Roots Radics Band! The tunes are stark, sharp, and very focused – and at some level, the mixologist is maybe keeping himself a bit more in check – to allow for some rootsy currents to flow through, and give the music a surprisingly soulful vibe from time to time – even when the echo's booted up a bit, and spacey sounds start to filter into the mix. Titles include "Attack", "Beaming", "Invaders", "Landing", "Vulcan", "Black Out", "Time Passage", and "Galaxy". LP, Vinyl record album

As classic an early album by Miles Davis as you can find – truly filled with the "all star" players billed in the title, and a session that has the sharpness of Davis' bop work for Blue Note, yet also lets him stretch out in a slightly more relaxed format! The album features Miles trumpet with 2 different groups – one a sextet with Horace Silver, JJ Johnson, and Lucky Thompson; the other a quintet with Silver and the obscure altoist Davey Schildkraut!

Peter GabrielPeter Gabriel 1 – Car (2LP 45RPM Half Speed Master) ... LP
Real World/Caroline, 1977. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $29.99
The first solo set from Peter Gabriel – and a record that was quite a surprise upon initial release – kind of a stripped-down variant of the energy that Gabriel brought to his early work with Genesis, presented in a nicely lean way that allowed for all the best focus on his key ideas! The style here is light years away from the last moments Gabriel was with Genesis – although there's still a few nice touches of the Lamb Lies Down generation, too – and the vocals are more pointed, more focused, and arguably more personal too. Instrumentation holds up better than you might expect – especially as there was no move at all to nod to the nascent punk generation – and titles include the hit "Solsbury Hill", plus "Modern Love", "Slowburn", "Humdrum", "Waiting For The Big One", "Down The Dolce Vita", and "Here Comes The Flood".

Brian Eno at the crux of his career – hanging perfectly between the guitar-heavy glam of earlier years, and the spacey electronics of later material – both of which he presents wonderfully on the record! The album is one of his last to feature real rock songs, with the kind of vocals you'd know from Eno's first two albums – and it mixes straighter styles with more complex electronic soundscapes, resulting in some wonderfully cold and abstract material that prefaces musical territory that many other artists wouldn't hit until the following decade! Titles include "Golden Hours", "The Big Ship", "St Elmos Fire", "Sky Saw", "Spirits Drifting", and "Becalmed". LP, Vinyl record album

Polydor/Astralwerks (Germany), 1977. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
The final album in Brian Eno's initial burst of genius in the 70s – and the last of those records to feature real rock songs, with vocals and lyrics! Eno steps off even further here from the territory he first explored on Another Green World – referencing some of his more private sonic experiments, but also still keeping things in a relatively tuneful mode – yet also somewhat personal, too – maybe a bit like Robert Wyatt at his early solo best. The record features contributions from some of his hipper contemporaries – Phil Manzanera and Robert Fripp on guitars, Fred Frith on "cascade guitars", Jaki Liebezeit and Phil Collins on drums (back when Phil was still hip!) – and more familiar musical partners Percy Jones on bass and Rhett Davies as the engineer. The whole album's brilliantly laid out – from fierceness to ambience, and back again – on titles that include "No One Receiving", "Kurt's Rejoinder", "King Lead Hat", "Spider & I", "Engery Fools The Magician", "Backwater", and "Here He Comes".

Island/Astralwerks (Germany), 1974. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
There's never been anyone like Brian Eno in his early years – and despite countless copycats over the years, nobody comes close to the brilliance of a record like this! There's so much going on here – darkness and wit, guitars and quiet, fantasy and sentimentality – all amazingly blended into tunes that shouldn't be catchy, but are – and which come across much more with the oddly rocking vibe of Eno's years in Roxy Music, than any of his later, better-known ambient projects. Make no mistake, that sense of sound that would grace the ambient works is definitely brewing here – as there's very interesting production, unusual sonic elements, and other surprises taking place throughout – in ways that continue to mesmerize and delight as the years go on. Titles include "Burning Airlines Give You So Much More", "Back In Judy's Jungle", "The Fat Lady Of Limbourg", "Mother Whale Eyeless", "The Great Pretender", "Third Uncle", "Put A Straw Under Baby", "The True Wheel", "China My China", and "Taking Tiger Mountain".

ArianArian ... LP
Favorite (France), Early 80s. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $24.99
Arian's perm on the cover gives you a hint of how the set might sound – and the whole thing is maybe even better than you might think! The album's an unusual soul set from early 80s Yugoslavia – with vocals that are partly in English, and a sound that's heavy on the same kind of keyboards and basslines that you'd hear coming from the New York scene – on tunes that include some numbers penned by Hubert Eaves and Bobby Caldwell – and sung by Arian with a blue-eyed soul approach – in vocals that are maybe not as strong as his American contemporaries, but which more than make up for their lack with an overall sense of groove. Titles include "Your Love Makes Me A Winner", "Sure It's Funky", "Still Together", "Novi Susret", "Can't Say Goodbye", and "Lutas Velikim Gradom". LP, Vinyl record album
(Special 2 x 45rpm version – with great sound!)

✨✧ Count Basie with Lester YoungLester Leaps In ... LP
Epic, Late 30s/1955. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
A beautiful mid 50s issue of some of the classic material that Lester Young recorded with Count Basie during the late 30s – all nicely packaged with a great cover, and annotated in a way that offers a lot more information than the original release of the material on 78rpm discs! These are the records that made Lester a giant – and for good reason, as the Basie setting seems to propel Young's horn with even more force than it might have on its own – allowing a great setting for the fresh voice that would go onto transform generations of tenor players to come! The set features 12 tracks in all – and titles include "Moten Swing", "Taxi War Dance", "Dickie's Dream", "Jump For Me", "Song Of The Islands", and "Lester Leaps In". LP, Vinyl record album
(Later yellow label pressing.)

Itadi K BonneyInye (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Hot Casa (France), 1983. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
A mighty album of Afro-styled grooves from Itadi K Bonney – an artist you might know from his late 70s album, issued under just his first name – and one who works with a sound that's even hipper here overall! The set was produced right before Bonney left Togo for various political reasons – and there's a power in the music that definitely mirrors his important cultural role –a freethinking blend of more than just a few contemporary styles, served up in a way that's as musically progressive as it is political! Riffing guitars and stepping basslines set up the groove nicely – and there's some very cool keyboard moments throughout, including a few moogy bits that really sound great. Titles include "Inye" – in both the album and 45rpm versions – plus "Hustle", "Africa Is Hot", "Why Why", "Aga Mimi", and "Ye Ye Ye". LP, Vinyl record album

RL BurnsideMississippi Hill Country Blues (with bonus download) ... LP
Fat Possum, Early 80s. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99 17.98
An album recorded in the Netherlands, but a set that hits right to the heart of RL Burnside's Mississippi roots – thanks to a beautifully spare, careful presentation of the music! Most numbers feature just Burnside on vocals and guitar – with a vibe that's similar to the field recordings that first introduced the world to his talents – those delta-raised styles that have an immediate tie back to the early years of blues on 78rpm discs, especially in this session – where RL seems to almost be reaching back further than the style of some of his other recordings of the same period. Titles include "Skinny Woman", "See What My Buddy Done", "Shake Em On Down", "Don't Care How Long You're Gone", "Jumper On The Line", "Long Haired Doney", and "Greyhound Bus Station". LP, Vinyl record album
(First time on vinyl – includes download! Limited edition Fat Possum Records 25th Anniversary pressing!)

Junior ByronSunshine ... LP
Favorite (France), 1981. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $26.99
A cool Canadian club classic from the start of the 80s – and a record that's got a groove that's quite different than some of the Montreal disco of a few short years before! Junior Byron's got a warm, fully-fleshed approach to his music – soaring on the uptempo tracks, and wickedly stepping on the mellower numbers – almost that mix of warmth and groove that you'd find in some of the best work by Leon Ware or Roy Ayers around the same time, but maybe more decidedly aimed at the dancefloor overall! Production is great – more sunny west coast than you'd expect from Toronto – and titles include "Heart To Heart Sensation", "Galaxy", "Inch By Inch", "Space Cowboy", "Too Much Tonight", and the great mellow "Sunshine". LP, Vinyl record album
(Two LP version – both records play at 45rpm!)

✨✧ Leroy Carr & Scrapper BlackwellNaptown Blues ... LP
Yazoo, Late 20s/Early 30s. Very Good+ ... $6.99
A historic pairing of blues talents – one that only flourished for a few short years, but created some wonderful music together! Leroy Carr brings lots of jazz inflections to his work on piano, but the overall sound is definitely blues – thanks strongly to the guitar lines of Scrapper Blackwell, who really helps give the tunes a nice rough edge, and hammers home the punch of the lyrics too! This LP is a beautiful presentation of rare 78rpm material from the pair – and titles include "What More Can I Do", "Fore Day Rider", "How About Me", "Memphis Town", "Getting All Wet", "Naptown Blues", "Carried Water For The Elephant", and "Papa Wants To Knock A Jug". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original 70s pressing.)

Miles DavisDig ... LP
Prestige, 1951. Good+ ... $59.99
A key early appearance on record by Sonny Rollins – recorded here with Miles Davis and Jackie McLean in the landmark Dig session! The album's the stuff that 50s bop dreams are made of – a session that has up-and-coming modernists working in the new freedom of the long playing record, in a way that allows them to break past the shorter, more urgent sound of the 78rpm single! Rollins is young, but a surprisingly strong voice on the set – and Jackie McLean's alto is incredibly sharp at this point, with strong hints of the genius to come later in the decade. The rest of the lineup includes Walter Bishop on piano, Tommy Potter on bass, and Art Blakey on drums – and tracks include Miles' classic version of "It's Only A Paper Moon", plus "Denial", "Out Of The Blue", "Dig", and "Bluing". LP, Vinyl record album
(50th St NYC pressing, with deep groove & RVG etch, in the blue cover. Cover has surface wear, a bit of marker on front, heavy edge wear with a mostly split bottom seam, and masking tape on the corners of the spine.)
