Philip Springer/Pacific Gas & Electric/Pete SeegerTell Me That You Love Me, Junie Moon ... LP
Columbia, 1969. Sealed ... $4.99
A real mix of moods and styles here. Pete Seeger starts out the soundtrack singing "Old Devil Time", and PG&E perform 2 funkier numbers – "Elvira" and "The Rake/Work Your Show", which both have a bluesy rock sort of approach. The best tunes, though, are the lighter instrumental ones by Springer – gentle numbers with slight jazzy touches amidst string-heavy backings, in the mode of some of Dave Grusin's best early soundtrack work. Titles by Springer include "Junie Moon", "Arthur's Trip", "The Big Date", "The Lovers", and "Off For A Holiday". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Joe HarriottJoe Harriott Swings High ... CD
Cadillac (UK), 1967. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic lost slice of work by one of the greatest modern jazz forces on the British jazz scene of the 60s – Jamaican-born saxophonist Joe Harriott, known for his groundbreaking avant jazz sessions and his experiments with Indian classical music! The sound here is quite different than those two better-known aspects of Harriott's career – and represents a return to the hardbop style he was using in the late 50s, when first making waves on the London scene. However, that's not a bad thing at all – as the album's overflowing with modern jazz undercurrents, and almost has a fresh post-Mingus approach to the horn parts and rhythm progressions. The quintet includes trumpeter Stu Hamer, drummer Phil Seaman, bassist Coleridge Goode, and pianist Pat Smythe – all well-suited players for Harriott in such a mode, and working here in a style that recalls the first great moments of British jazz from the late 50s. Titles include "Strollin South", "Just Goofin", "Time For Love", "The Rake", "Blues In C", and "Tuesday Morning Swing". CD

Hamid Drake & BinduBindu ... CD
Rogue Art (France), 2005. Used ... $8.99
Really righteous work from the Chicago scene – a very hip album that features some especially nice guest work on flute from Nicole Mitchell! The group is headed up by percussionist Hamid Drake, who really sounds great here – almost more relaxed and organic in his handling of drums and tablas than on other records – really settling into a sound that recalls the glory days of the earlier AACM scene. Other players are well-matched for this vibe – and include Ernest Dawkins on tenor and alto, Daniel Carter on saxes and clarinet, Sabir Mateen on saxes and bass clarinet, and Greg Ward on alto and clarinet – all players whose reeds work together beautifully, with tight formations at some points, and much freer solo sounds at others. Titles include "Bindu #2 For Baba Fred Anderson", "Remembering Rituals", "Born Upon A Lotus", "Bindu #1 For Ed Blackwell", and "Do Khyentse's Journey 139 Years & More". CD

Nick DrakePink Moon ... CD
Island, 1972. Used ... $1.99
A beautiful treasure from the legendary Nick Drake – the last album he ever recorded – and a set that may well be his most personal as well! The sound here is even more stripped-down than before – often just vocals and acoustic guitar, but used together in ways that are really unique – inflected with lots of the jazzy phrasing that always made Nick so unique – and light years from any of the folkies who were his contemporaries! There's a very special Drake-like approach to the whole record – a heavenly sound that's never been duplicated again – and titles include the classic "Pink Moon", plus "Place To Be", "Road", "Parasite", "Ride", and "From The Morning".

Spaceways Incorporated (Vandermark/Drake/McBride)Spaceways Incorporated – 13 Cosmic Standards by Sun Ra & Funkadelic ... CD
Atavistic, 2000. Used ... $7.99
A very nice little album – and one that moves way past the gimmicky nature that you might guess from the title! The Sun Ra influence is obvious – as it seems natural for the Chicago-based players to show a bit of respect to what's gone before them in the city. The Funkadelic twist might seem a bit more odd, though – but not if you consider the fact that Vandermark's played a heck of a lot with funky jazz combos over the past 10 years, and that Drake can really kick it on the set when he wants to! In fact, the two of them go so full-out on the Funkadelic tunes that you'll be hard-pressed to believe that there's actually only a trio of sax, drums, and bass playing the music! The Ra tunes seem a bit restrained next to the Funkadelic ones – but that also makes for a nice mix of styles on the CD. Titles include "Tapestry From An Asteroid", "Cosmic Slop", "Future", "Super Stupid", "You & Your Folks, Me & My Folks", "El Is A Sound Of Joy", and "Street Named Hell". CD

✨✧ Nick DrakeBryter Layter ... LP
Island (UK), 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The second album from the legendary Nick Drake – one of those records we could never ever live without – and a true piece of genius that's been turning on generations of listeners since Nick first recorded it back at the start of the 70s! The format is folksy, but the execution is something else entirely – filled with jazzy phrasing, hypnotic lyrics, and arrangements that really go far beyond any cliches or contemporary work you might expect. The great Joe Boyd produced – and really helps give a strong focus to Nick's vocals and guitar – and the cool mix of added instrumentation – which includes organ and celeste from John Cale, flute and alto from Ray Warleigh, piano from Chris McGregor, and guitar from Richard Thompson. Drake's work is impossible to describe adequately, but if you've ever heard him, you probably stopped dead in your tracks the minute you first caught his voice. We still do the same – and it's a pleasure to have this one in stock! Titles include "Fly", "At The Chime Of A City Clock", "Hazy Jane", "Poor Boy", and "One Of These Things First".

✨✧ Tony DrakeLiving In The Footsteps Of Another Man/Hey World ... 7-inch
It's Soul Time, 2005. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Incredible new work from Tony Drake – a singer who recorded briefly for Brunswick and Musicor back in the day, and the artist who originally wrote this hit for The Chi-Lites! Tony's singing here as if it's still the early 70s – deep soul lead, backed by sweet harmonies – all set to a mellow gliding groove that's a slightly different take on the old Chi-soul sound! "Hey World" is a slightly more modern number – one that hits a bit of a boogie bounce on the bottom, but which still has sublimely classic lead vocals from Tony! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Joe BeckNature Boy ... CD
Verve/Long Hair (Germany), 1968. New Copy ... $19.99
A cool little album from Joe Beck – very different than most of his other work! Although Beck's best known for his guitar work on funky 70s jazz records, this early album has him working in a mixture of rock, jazz, and folk styles – all cast in the hipster mode of Verve's Forecast imprint. There's a few funk tunes on here, but the best numbers are stretched out trippy ones that bring together jazz and folk, in a floating "folk funk experience" sound that we totally love, perfect for the generation of Tim Hardin and Nick Drake. Beck sings on some cuts, and others are instrumental. Titles include "Ain't No Use Talkin", "Goodbye LA", "Please Believe Me", "Let Me Go", "Come Back: Visions Without You", and "Spoon's Caress". CD

James Bond (Jimmy Bond)James Bond Songbook ... CD
Mira/BGP (UK), 1965. New Copy ... $8.99 14.99
Way more than just a James Bond cash-in record – and instead an ultra-hip jazz session from the west coast scene of the 60s! The James Bond at the helm of the record is actually Jimmy Bond – the great bassist who worked on some key sessions of the late 50s and early 60s as a sideman, and who turns out to be a surprisingly great leader on this rare mid 60s date! The record is more jazz than anything else – played with a crime/spy bent, to be sure – but also flowing with really great solos and a fair bit of a bossa influence in the rhythms! The group here is more than hip enough to make the record work – with Harold Land on tenor sax, Bobby Bryant on trumpet, and Buddy Colette on flute and tenor – all working in a sextet led by Bond, with plenty of round, warm, almost modal lines on his bass – punctuated nicely by piano from Joe Parnello and drums by Joh Guarin. Arrangements are by Dick Groove – who keeps things very groovy – and many of the tracks here are actually original numbers written by Bond and Warren Baker, titled after Ian Fleming books that had not yet been made into movies at the time of this album! Titles include "Casino Royale", "Moonraker", "For Your Eyes Only", "007 Theme From Dr No", "Man With The Golden Gun", "Diamonds Are Forever", and "Live & Let Die". CD

Dark ShadowsDark Shadows – The Complete Original Series Vol 5 (hardcover) ... Book
Hermes, 2012. New Copy ... $6.99 49.99
Pretty great horror comics from the early 70s – the surprisingly long, healthy run of Gold Key's Dark Shadows comic books – which actually ran longer at the newstand than the show did on TV! The comic's strength comes from some great talents – 50s horror artist Joe Certa, still hard at work to give the images a nice edge – and DC Comic scribe Arthur Drake, who penned some of the weirder comics of the silver age – on board to give these stories a bit more of an edge than you might expect! The hardcover book does a great job of presenting the material – including covers of the comics – and features issues 29 through 35, plus additional text – all in a full color, 192 page volume! Book

Eloping With The Sun (William Parker/Joe Morris/HaCounteract This Turmoil Like Trees & Birds ... CD
Rogue Art (France), 2016. Used ... $11.99
A beautifully earthy performance – and a set that not only has the three members of the trio on their trademark instruments, but also picking up a wide range of other elements too! Joe Morris is perhaps the most striking here – as in addition to guitar, he also uses banjo, fiddle, bass, banjouke, pocket trumpet, and even a bit of whistles – a sonic sense of variety that's matched by Parker's use of shakuhachi, sintir, n'goni, and thumb piano – all instruments that he plays with the same deeply spiritual currents of his work on bass! Hamid Drake sticks mostly to percussion – a range of drums, cymbals, and gongs – but overall, his performance feels as open and organic as the others – far beyond both standard and free jazz, into a mode that almost works in some ethnographic currents as well. The whole record's as poetic as the title – and tracks include "Profound Branches", "The Sky Was Purple Blue", "Energy Of Patience", "The Rhythm Of Butterflies", "Endless Galaxies", and "Grass Beneath The Cracked Shells".

EvensongEvensong (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Beatball (Korea), 1973. New Copy ... $22.99
One of those records that should have been a classic – but which maybe never hit the mark at the time because it was too perfect, too far ahead of its generation to score a bigger hit! At one level, Evensong work in the same mix of folk and strings that you might find from some of Joe Boyd's productions over at Island – especially the music of Nick Drake – but there's other currents here that reflect the acoustic hipness on the LA scene a few years before, too – not necessarily country-inspired, but with currents that are more American than usual for UK work of the time. The group are a duo – Tony Hulme and Mike Lawson – but the sound really comes from the fuller arrangements from Mike Moran and Ray Fenwick, who flesh out their core ideas beautifully. Titles include "Smallest Man In The World", "Dodos & Dinosaurs", "I Was Her Cowboy", "Store Of Time", "Rum Runner", "Sweetbriar Road", and "Borderline" – plus 6 bonus tracks including "Home Made Wine", "Romeo", and "Tell Me A Story"!
