Osborne & GilesStranger In The Night ... LP
Red Label, 1985. Near Mint- ... $7.99
Mid 80s soul from the team of Billy Osborne and Attala Zane Giles – a short-lived duo who are probably best remembered for this set on the equally short-lived Red Label – one of the last gasps of the Chicago soul business for many years! There's a relatively polished feel to the set – with some contemporary ballads nestled alongside a few more upbeat groovers that echo soul modes of a few years before. Overall, there's a bit of stiffness to the set that possibly comes from too much polish, but a few of the mellower tracks make up for the clunkier spots on the groovers. Titles include "Keep Pushin On", "I'll Save Forever For You", "I Want To Be With You", "I Can't Stop This Feeling", "Be Right By Your Side", and "Night On The Town". LP, Vinyl record album

Red Garland Trio with Eddie Lockjaw DavisMoodsville Vol 1 – Red Garland Trio Plus Eddie Lockjaw Davis ... CD
Prestige/Moodsville/OJC, Early 60s. Used ... $4.99
Gentle genius from Red Garland – working here in classic trio formation with Sam Jones and Art Taylor – on a mellow set of late nite numbers and subtle ballads, all carried off in the best tradition of the Moodsville label! Eddie Lockjaw Davis joins the group on 3 tracks on the set – blowing in a style that's spare, open-mouthed, and amazingly soulful – more so almost than even his best ballad blowing on his organ-based records for Prestige during the same time. Davis really sparkles tremendously on the tunes "Softly Baby", "When Your Lover Has Gone", and "We'll Be Together Again" – and other tracks include "Stella By Starlight", "Blue Room", and "Wonder Why".

Allen GinsbergAllen Ginsberg Reads Kaddish – A 20th Century American Ecstatic Narrative Poem (red colored vinyl) ... LP
Atlantic/Real Gone, 1966. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99 20.98
The one-and-only entry in the Verbatum series from Atlantic Records – a proposed spoken word offshoot of the label – but one that only ever issued this fantastic 60s reading by Allen Ginsberg! As you might guess from the cover's beautiful photograph by Richard Avedon, Ginsberg is at the height of his hippie years here – and the poem Kaddish is a freewheeling, spiritually-infused work that is quite different than some of the earlier beat material. Ginsberg draws both on his Jewish roots and his increasing conflict with society for the piece – which is presented here in a lively recording done at Brandeis in 1964. Reissue features new notes and Ginsberg items for the package! LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 1700 on red vinyl.)

Junkfood & Enrico GabrielliItalian Masters (deep red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Cinedelic (Italy), 2016. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99
No junk here – as this hip instrumental group take on the sounds of three Italian soundtrack masters – Ennio Morricone, Piero Umilani, and Armando Trovajoli – all while offering up some very unusual interpretations of their work! The songs are familiar, but the instrumentation is a nice change from simple recasting on keyboards – and instead, these guys use guitar as much as they do some of the older elements – often with some fuzz that brings a current of darkness to the tunes that even exceeds some of the originals! The approach is a bit like that of some of the work on the Cineploit label, but this group is a bit more fully-formed – with trumpet, flute, and bass clarinet from Enrico Gabrielli – and the album also features guest vocals from Edda Dell'Orso on one track too. Titles include "C'Eravamo Tanto Amati", "Masquerade", "Eat It", "Silenzio Nel Caos", "Per Un Pugno Di Dollari", "Gassman Blues", "The Body", and "Conflitti". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition colored vinyl!)

Sonny RedSonny Red ... CD
Mainstream/Solid (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $13.99
A fantastic album as a leader from Sonny Red – a saxophonist who never got much chance to record under his own name, but always gave us something special when he did! Sonny recorded famously with Donald Byrd and Curtis Fuller in the 60s – but here, he's in an even hipper 70s mode of his own – a bit modal, a bit spiritual – in ways that make the whole album feel like some of the best 70s efforts on the Black Jazz label, with a righteous quality we might never have expected in Red a decade before! Sonny blows tenor, alto, and flute – all of them with a sharp, soulful edge – and he works here in a fantastic quartet that includes Cedar Walton on piano, whose own shadings give the record a lot of depth – plus the great Billy Higgins on drums, and Herbie Lewis on bass. Titles include a great remake of "Mustang", which Red recorded with Donald Byrd – plus "And Then Again", "Love Song", "Tears", and "Rodan". CD

VariousSoul Slabs Vol 1 (red colored vinyl – with download) (2017 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Colemine, 2010s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $29.99
A very well-titled set – given that the Colemine Records label has given us some mighty soulful slabs of wax in recent years! Although a small label, in the hinterland of Ohio, Colemine is fast rising to be one of the coolest funk labels in the world – right up there on a par with older classics like Desco and Soul Fire, and almost able to challenge the supremacy of the Daptone sound! Yet Colemine is also a bit more wide-ranging than some of those other labels, too – as you'll hear in the rich array of sounds within – all pulled from previous funky 45s on the label, many of which are out of print – and presented here in a fantastic full length set. Titles include "Don't Get Caught" by The Droptones, "Yo Todo T Yo" by The Rugged Nuggets, "Street Sweeper" by The Grease Traps, "Like Yesterday" by The Monophonics, "Pacified" by Soul Scratch, "Remember When" by Leroi Conroy, "Jesse's Jing" by In Motion Collective, "Next To You" by Gene Washington & The Ironsides, and "Suction" by On The Spot Trio.

✨✧ Sonny RedMode ... LP
Jazzland, 1961. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Quite possibly Sonny Red's best non-Blue Note session – and a real winner with a group that includes Grant Green on guitar, and either Barry Harris or Cedar Walton on piano. Red's tone is one of our favorites from the time, and his alto has a nice bite and a soulful raspy quality that's just great. The album includes the long groover titled "The Mode", plus the cuts "Super 20", "Ko-Kee", and "I Like The Likes Of You". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Nina SimoneNina Simone Sings Ellington (red cover) ... LP
Colpix, 1962. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Nina sings Ellington – but as always, she makes whatever she sings all her own! The album's a bit straighter than later efforts – with large backings by Stu Phillips that also feature vocals by the Malcolm Dodds Singers – but Nina also conceived the whole thing herself, as an effort to bring a new level of spiritualism to Ellington's work. The result is a masterpiece – proof that even in her early years, Nina could completely transform anything she laid her hands on – and unlock a soulful depth that even the original recordings might have missed. Titles include "I Got It Bad", "Solitude", "The Gal From Joe's", "It Don't Mean A Thing", and "I Like The Sunrise". LP, Vinyl record album
(Gold label pressing with deep groove. Cover has heavy wear & staining.)

✨✧ Red GarlandSaying Something ... LP
Prestige, Late 50s. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Excellent hard bop sides from Red Garland, originally recorded for the Prestige label and issued on the albums High Pressure, Dig It and Soul Burnin'. Featuring either Donald Byrd and John Coltrane or Richard Williams and Oliver Nelson up front and George Joyner and Arthur Taylor or Peck Morrison and Charlie Persip in the rhythm section, these sides crackle with a wonderful inventiveness that reveals why Garland played alongside 'Trane onso many classic sides from this era. 9 tracks in all, most nice lengthy takes where everyone gets a chance to stretch out, including "Two Bass Hit", "Billie's Bounce", "Solitude", "Lazy Mae" and "On Green Dolphin Street".

✨✧ Lightnin HopkinsTexas Blues Man (180 gram red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Arhoolie, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A late 60s recording by Lightning Hopkins – but one of his rootsiest of the decade, thanks to the gritty production of the Arhoolie label! There's a really personal, intimate feel to the record – almost as if the label just set up in Hopkins' living room while he was running through a few songs – which, at some level, is exactly what they did – and which is what makes the record so great! The mode really makes the album a standout in Hopkins' large catalog – and titles include "Slavery", "Take A Walk", "Tom Moore Blues", "Watch My Fingers", and "Love Is Like A Hydrant". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousI'll Give You My Heart I'll Give You My Heart – The Cherry Red Singles Collection 1978 to 1983 (8CD set) ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 8 CDs ... Out Of Stock
An amazing legacy in music – from one of the hippest British indie labels of the post-punk years! Cherry Red was one of the first record companies to really stretch out in sounds, and showcase the wider array of underground sounds in the UK beyond just the bigger punk sounds of the late 70s – and the label (which continues today) had an amazing ear for unusual artists and styles that instantly set them apart from the rest! Rough Trade might be the only other company who came close to the diversity embraced by Cherry Red – but given the scope of the material in this collection, they might still take a second seat – given that Cherry Red also did a great job of bringing together tracks from the larger American and European scenes too. The 8CD set is amazing – and includes 185 tracks in all, every a-side and b-side from the label's first five years' worth of singles – with music by Destroy All Monsters, The Runaways, Richard Strange, Can, Thomas Leer, Dead Kennedys, Alan Burnham, Medium Medium, Attila The Stockbroker, Marine Girls, Everything But The Girl, The Nightingales, Eyeless In Gaza, The Reflections, Marc Bolan, New Age Steppers, Tracey Thorn, The Monochrome Set, Felt, The Letters, Glaxo Babies, Robert Wyatt, Robert Fripp, Ivor Cutler, Andy Partridge, Lol Coxhill, Gilbert & Lewis, Kevin Hewick, and many others! Comes with a heavy 72 page book – telling the label's history, with lots of photos too. CD

✨✧ Horde Catalytique Por La FinGestation Sonore (limited red vinyl pressing) ... LP
Futura/Souffle Continu (France), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the most "outside" albums recorded on the legendary Futura Records label in France – and that's saying quite a lot, given the legacy of avant jazz we've loved from their other records! The group here is a quartet – with Richard Accart on tenor and a variety of flutes; Frankcy Bourlier on vibes, pan flutes, harp, and even the inside "harp" of the piano; Jacques Fassola on bass, guitar, zen organ, and banjo; and Gil Sterg on drums, balafon, tumba, and other percussion – an amazing range of acoustic source material that produces an equally diverse sound overall! The musicians leap between the different instruments with the dexterity of the Art Ensemble Of Chicago at their height – and create a similar range of full-on to contemplative moments – but the overall music is maybe even less jazz than that famous group, with a stronger focus on textures and unusual sounds. Titles include the four part "Gestation Sonore". LP, Vinyl record album

Gene Ammons & Sonny StittWe'll Be Together Again ... LP
Prestige, 1961/1968. Very Good ... $2.99
Nothing fancy – but some great straight-ahead blowing from Stitt and Jug! The album's a quintet session, with John Houston piano, Buster Williams bass, and George Brown drums providing all the rhythm. But the real focus is on the twin-sax frontline – with Sitt taking up the alto on a few numbers, but mostly blowing tenor head to head with Jug. The album was supposedly recorded in 1961, but not issued until later in the 60s by Prestige – and it's right up there with the excellent work that the team were cutting at the time for Verve and Argo. Titles include "A Mess", "Water Jug", "New Blues Up & Down", "Red Sails In The Sunset", and "A Pair Of Red Pants". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing.)

Burt BacharachBurt Bacharach Plays His Hits ... CD
Universal, Mid 60s. Used ... $1.99
Essential compilation of Burt's original recordings for the Kapp label from the mid 60's. The production's got vocal choruses, large orchestrations, and lots of cool tinkly piano – and the groove is 100% Bacharach, with lesser-known versions of tracks that were bit hits for other pop stars. A fair bit of the stuff's instrumental, but some tracks have voices singing lead. Our fave is the recording of "My Little Red Book", with great soul vocals by Tony Middleton – but there's loads of goodies like "Wives & Lovers", "Trains & Boats & Planes", "What's New Pussycat?", "The Last One To Be Loved", "Saturday Sunshine", and "24 Hours From Tulsa".

Players include Frank Foster, Frank Wess, Ernie Wilkins, Marshall Royal, Joe Newman, Thad Jones, Bennie Powell, and Freddie Green – plus Basie, of course. Titles include "Two Franks", "Ska Di Didle Dee Bee Doo", "Rails", "Blues Backstage", and "Perdido" – and there's a very strong focus on the best soloists in the group! (Note: this material was also issued under the title The Band Of Distinction – but this is the first version.) LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ BeatlesAbbey Road ... LP
Apple, 1969. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
Pure brilliance from start to finish – especially the second side of the record, which has a continuous run of tunes that's very unique – and still completely sublime all these many years later! The album shows the fracturing ideas of the group, but crafted together with a unity you won't find on The White Album or Let It Be – still a way of making it all gel together beautifully, as the fab four stretch their wings to find new ways of being. Added instrumentation is used wonderfully – never overdone, but with orchestral passages that can really hammer home the best musical moments – and titles include "I Want You", "Because", "You Never Give Me Your Money", "Golden Slumbers", "The End", "Her Majesty", "Polythene Pam", and "Sun King".

BeatlesLet It Be ... LP
Apple, 1970. Very Good+ ... $24.99
A bittersweet farewell from The Beatles – a record that definitely shows the fracturing unity of the group, with lots of near-solo moments – but a set that also makes us really wonder what they'd have done with all this genius, had they managed to hold it together! There's great hints here of the solo work to come – especially from George Harrison and John Lennon – and the Phil Spector production really helps open up a new sound for the group. Includes the genius cuts "I Dig A Pony", "Two Of Us", "Across The Universe", "I Me Mine", "One After 909", "For You Blue", and "Let It Be". LP, Vinyl record album

The vocals are what you've always known from the Bros Gibb, but the production is what really sends us – complicated, baroque, and filled with these completely compelling instrumental and studio twists that make the already-charming lyrics even more lovely! Titles include the classics "Holiday" and "Turn Of The Century" – plus "New York Mining Disaster 1941", "In My Own Time", "Red Chair Fade Away", "Close Another Door", and "To Love Somebody".
