✨✧ DJ ShadowYou Can't Go Home Again (radio)/Disavowed/Treach Battle Beat ... 12-inch
MCA, 2002. Very Good- (pic cover)... $1.99
Shadow's first single off his second LP, and believe it or not, it's as much of a pop/rock record as the UNKLE LP was! We're not complaining though, because this one's got a great new wave twist to it, and on the third track of this single, Shadow's back in battle mode, with vocal cut-ups over a slower beat. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Cover has some wear, light waviness and a center split in the spine.)

DJ Shadow & Cut ChemistRenegades Of Rhythm – DJ Shadow & Cut Chemist Play Afrika Bambaataa (tour book) ... Book
Boo Hooray, 2014. New Copy ... $38.99 39.98
A sweet little tour book commemorating DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist's Renegades Of Rhythm tour – in which the duo of modern live DJ masters honor pioneer Afrika Bambaataa! The most incredible fact about the tour itself, is that Shadow and Chemist don't just spin records that Bambaataa himself spun back in the day, but they're literally spinning Bambaataa's own record collection – having been granted access by the man himself. The book is great, with text by DJ Shadow, Cut Chemist AND Afrika Bambaataa, done in kind of a DIY style that makes it all the more appealing – with a beautiful hand silk-screened cover with by Paul Insect, and featuring full color scans of many of the actual records, some rare old Bambaataa gig flyers and lots more! Book

LaBelleMoon Shadow ... CD
Warner/Wounded Bird, 1972. Used ... $24.99
One of the greatest albums ever by Labelle – known especially for the massive funky title cut, which has been an in-demand groover for years! "Moonshadow" begins with a nice funky piano intro, then rolls into a 10 minute groove that's really tasty – filled with lots of jazzy riffing, tasty conga, and a weird monologue by Patti that runs through different parts of the body and why you should appreciate them! The cut was lost on American audiences of the 70s, but became a huge one in the European jazz dance scene of the late 80s, probably because most of them couldn't understand how silly Patti's vocals were! The cut's nice and funky, though – and there's some other nice ones on the record, too, including "Sunday News", "Touch Me All Over", and "Peace With Yourself". Much more interesting than most of their stuff, with a hip mixture of jazz, soul, and hard grooving! CD

Limited repressing of an early DJ Shadow remix of "Real Deal". Supposedly the Lifers Group material was recorded in prison, by MC's who were serving 25+ year sentences, one of a couple of concept projects Funkenklein brought to Hollywood Basic. "Lesson 4" is the now classic 8-minute cut & paste track from Shadow, featuring many now recognizable breakbeats, and a tribute to the early classic breakbeat mixes by Double D & Steinski called Lessons 1, 2 & 3. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Harry NilssonPandemonium Shadow Show (180 gram mono edition) ... LP
RCA/Sundazed, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99 24.98
Brilliant stuff – and exactly the place to start with Harry Nilsson! Long before his style had become cliched – or before it was copied by too many others – Nilsson cut this mad album of wonderful little songs – sort of a cross between folksy singer-songwriter work, and more baroque-oriented styles, like those of Scott Walker – and like Walker, in a really unique space of its own! The key element here is whimsy – and Nilsson let arranger George Tipton take him all over the map, from the somber tone of his classic "Without Her", to the spacious joy of "River Deep Mountain High", to the silliness of "1941", and the sad beauty of "She's Leaving Home". Great stuff all around – with a sound that's impossible to pinpoint, but which is perfect all the way through! LP, Vinyl record album

ShadowLove Lite ... LP
Elektra, 1979. Very Good ... $5.99
Uptempo modern soul from this short-lived combo who cut a few records for Elektra at the end of the 70s. The cuts have a nice jazzy undertone, with a style that's approaching an 80's kind of sound. Although Leon Ware worked with the group on later recordings, we actually prefer this one – as the sound's a bit tighter, and a bit more focused. Titles include the mellow "No Better Love" and "Say It Again", both with a nice cold slow jam kind of groove, plus "Get It", "Love Lite", and "I Need Love". LP, Vinyl record album

Pinky WintersShadow Of Your Smile (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Cellar Door/M&I (Japan), 1983. Used ... $29.99
A beautiful tribute to the work of Johnny Mandel – easily one of the greatest composers of the modern age, partly a soundtrack genius, but also a richly talented songwriter with a great flair for a sad love song! Vocalist Pinky Winters performs a choice collection of Mandel's greatest numbers here – working with pianist Lou Levy in a set that's heavy on the most adult, mature themes of Mandel's 60s oeuvre. Winters' vocal performance is perfect for the material – straight, subtle, and sometimes somber – really bringing out the darker themes in Johnny's wonderful tunes, and really illuminating lyrics penned by Dave Frishberg, The Bergmans, and others. A few tracks feature bass work by Bill Takas, and titles include "The Shining Sea", "Close Enough For Love", "You Are There", "Emily", "A Time For Love", "Unless It's You", "Take Me Home", and "Don't Look Back".

VariousSophisticated Boom Boom – The Shadow Morton Story ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $13.99
A fantastic batch of music that ranges from early rockers to glittery glam rock – from a legendary producer who worked with everyone from The Shangri-Las to The New York Dolls! George Shadow Morton was a key figure in changing the sound of the New York scene in the 60s and early 70s – and with roots in novelty rock and early studio tricks for rock music, he was very well poised to bring his own sort of special magic to later famous productions that make Morton as important a production force as Phil Spector, Kim Fowley, and Jack Nitzsche! The package is one of the richest in Ace Records' look at important producers of 20th Century music – and comes with a special book that's so rich in detail, it warrants a different sort of package than other titles in this series – a perfect accompaniment to the range of sounds that includes "Only Seventeen" by The Beatle-ettes, "Sophisticated Boom Boom" by The Goodies, "Baby" by Ellie Greenwich, "Past Present & Future" by The Shangri-Las, "So Soft So Warm" by The Nu Luvs, "Stop The Clock" by The Shaggy Boys, "Too Old To Go Way Little Girl" by Janis Ian, "You Keep Me Hangin On" by Vanilla Fudge, "And When It's Over" by The Vagrants, "In A Gadda Da Vida" by Iron Butterfly, "Midnight Lady" by Mott The Hoople, and "Stranded In The Jungle" by New York Dolls.

Verve, 1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of Astrud Gilberto's greatest albums – and quite possibly our personal favorite! The record features beautifully understated arrangements by Joao Donato, Don Sebesky, and Claus Ogerman – and the instrumentation is a haunting mix of bossa rhythms with darker orchestrations that bring out an emotional side of Astrud that you don't always get on other LPs. The track list is excellent, and includes some of her best tracks for Verve, like "Non Stop To Brazil", "Fly Me To The Moon", "O Ganso", and "Aruanda". Not to be passed up, and one that we never tire of listening to! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Johnny MathisSweetheart Tree/Shadow Of Your Smile ... CD
Mercury/Real Gone, Mid 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two Johnny Mathis gems from his years at Mercury Records – back to back on a single CD! Sweetheart Tree is a unique album – in that it represents some unusual London sessions from Johnny Mathis – material recorded in the UK with different arrangers than usual – including Tony Osborne, Alyn Ainsworth, and Allyn Ferguson – all of whom help give Mathis a slight change of flavor here! The new talents make for a fresh change – and the album also brings in a few US tracks too, with work by Glenn Osser and Lincoln Mayorga – on titles that include "Symphony", "The Skye Boat Song", "A Wonderful Day Like Today", "Clopin Clopant", "This Is Love", and "I'll Close My Eyes". The Shadow Of Your Smile is a record that has the singer both hitting classic modes, and stretching out towards some of the hip changes in 60s music as well! The mix of tunes is very nice – with a few Beatles tunes, some bossa tracks, and a few more standard numbers to round out the mix – all arranged with some inventive rhythms by John Pisano, Glenn Osser, Jack Elliott, and Tony Osborne – in ways that make for a nice sense of variety throughout the record. Titles include a great reading of "The Shadow Of Your Smile" – plus "Quiet Nights", "Michelle", "Taste Of Honey", "Melinda", "Come Back To Me", "Something's Coming", and "Moment To Moment". CD

✨✧ Gary BartzShadow Do ... CD
Prestige/Universal (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A key early pairing of saxophonist Gary Bartz and producer Larry Mizell – working here together before their more famous collaboration on Capitol Records, in a sound that's even more freewheeling and open-ended! Bartz still has a bit of an edge in his horn here – the style laid down heavily on his NTU Troop records from a few years before – and Mizell takes that edge and runs with it nicely, helping Gary to focus his rhythms a bit more, and reach out with some really wonderful electric sounds. Hubert Eaves plays keyboards here – and Mizell brings in a bit too – and the blend of keys and reeds is really great, with that double-edged depth that makes Gary Bartz so great on his best albums! A bunch of the cuts have that airy Mizell feel to them we totally love, including "Love Tones", "Gentle Smiles (Saxy)", "Sea Gypsy", and "Winding Roads". CD

Stunt (Denmark), 2015. New Copy ... $15.99 18.99
A great laidback set from tenorist Harry Allen – nothing fancy, but a great demonstration of Allen's wonderfully old school approach! The group's got an easygoing groove – led by pianist Jan Lundgren – and Allen blows these soulful, spacious solos over the top – with a bit of a Gene Ammons vibe on both the groovers and mellow cuts. Even better, all tracks are compositions by the great Johnny Mandel – whose music works perfectly for this format – and titles include "Emily", "The Shining Sea", "Sure As You're Born", "Cinnamon & Clove", "Suicide Is Painless", and "The Shadow Of Your Smile".

Big Brother & The Holding CompanyLive At The Carousel Ballroom 1968 ... CD

A damn great document of the blues psych power of Big Brother & The Holding Company – a previously unreleased live set culled from the archive of legendary soundman Owsley "Bear" Stanley – and a fitting testament to his legacy, too! We wouldn't dream to assigning anything resembling a fault to size of Janis's shadow – but we really do think that the greatness of this band tends to be lost in it. We're thinking that a prime live recording such is this is as fine a point to reassess them, and this is great one! Includes "Combination Of The Two", "I Need A Man To Love", "Flower In The Sun", "Light Is Faster Than Sound", "It's A Deal", "Call On Me", "Coo Coo", "Piece Of My Heart", "Ball & Chain" Down On Me" and more – plus a bonus recording of "Call On Me" – captured on June 22, 1968.

✨✧ June ChristyBallads For Night People (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol, 1961. Used ... $7.99
Darkly beautiful work from singer June Christy – a lesser-remembered gem from the end of her years at Capitol Records! The mood here is very much in keeping with the "night people" setting of the title – a lonely space of empty streets, open windows, and late night saloons – first brought to record so beautifully by June on the Something Cool album, and wonderfully revisited in this fantastic set! Arrangements are by husband Bob Cooper, and although they're a bit less arch-modern than some of Christy's work with Pete Rugolo, they still really get at the boozy genius of June's vocals at their best. Titles include "I Had A Little Sorrow", "Night People", "Make Love To Me", "Shadow Woman", "My Ship", and "Kissing Bug". CD also features 5 bonus tracks from the Do Re Mi album – including "Make Someone Happy", "Asking For You", and "All You Need Is A Quarter". CD

June Christy & Stan KentonDuet ... LP
Capitol, 1955. Very Good ... $9.99
Haunting stuff – and one of June Christy's darkest albums! June's singing here with her old boss, Stan Kenton, at the piano – no other real backing, just the pair of them working together in a session that's uniquely stripped down for the time. June's vocals are frail and tender – with even more sadness than in some of her more fully arranged sessions, all of which we love to death. Titles include "Come To The Party", "Angel Eyes", "Lonely Woman", "Every Time We Say Goodbye", "How Long Has This Been Going On", "We Kiss In A Shadow", and "You're Mine You". LP, Vinyl record album

Perry ComoLightly Latin ... LP
RCA, 1966. Near Mint- ... $6.99
One of the most sublime albums we've ever heard from Perry Como – a set that definitely takes its Latin lightly, and instead really goes for the best sort of mellow side of the Como sound! There's definitely a few bossa touches in the mix – a bit of acoustic guitar or light percussion – but they're added in very sparely, and couched with a beautifully subtle wall of sound from arranger Nick Perito, who works here with a lot more understatement than on some other records. Como's vocals are very far from pop – and the album brings out his maturing style wonderfully with a spacious, soft-toned style of production. Titles include "Dindi", "Once I Loved", "Stay With Me", "How Insensitive", "The Shadow Of Your Smile", "Baia", and "Manha De Carnaval". LP, Vinyl record album

A follow up to the similarly-titled Conversations With Myself album recorded several years before – and like that one, a record that has Bill Evans playing "with" himself, via the technology of overdubs! The album's less a solo album, than a duet one – given that most of the numbers feature Evans working between melody and rhythm on overlapping piano lines – creating a mini chorus of pianos that sounds totally great, and wonderfully unique! Titles include "Emily", "Yesterdays", "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town", "Funny Man", "The Shadow Of Your Smile", "Little Lulu" and "Quiet Now". CD

✨✧ Five SpecialSpecial Edition ... LP
Elektra, 1980. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Classic funky soul from Five Special – tightly crafted throughout, and clearly with an eye on the charts – but also the kind of work that plays nicely on the dancefloor too! The record's got a groove that fits in nicely with some of the lesser-remembered groovers on Elektra at the time – like Shadow or Chameleon – with plenty of jazzy inflections in the rhythms, and a nice sense of 80s groove that keeps the uptempo tracks from being just copycat club. But the vocals here are especially nice, and sparkle even more on the ballads, which have a smooth and warm sound that's tight, yet never commercially cloying. Titles include "Do Something Special", "Heaven", "Who You Been Lovin", "Jam", "Choosin You For Me", and "Had You A Lover". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Five StairstepsOur Family Portrait/Stairsteps (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Buddah/Real Gone, 1968/1970. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
A pair of killers from The Five Stairsteps – back to back on a single CD, with bonus tracks too! First up is Our Family Portrait – a true family portrait of the Five Stairsteps – a group who first came to light on a host of wonderful indie singles in Chicago, stepping forth here on a great full length for Buddah Records! All the best elements of the group's early singles are still in place – including production from father Clarence Burke, and some great arrangements from Johnnie Pate – which give the album this sense of powerful soul that was maybe missing before. Yet the vocals still have all the youthful charm of the group at their start – strong leads by Keni Burke, harmonies by the rest of the family, and even an appearance by Cubie – the youngest member, and more of a novelty presence here. Titles include the group's minor hit "New Dance Craze" – a pretty groovy number – plus "Bad News", "Under The Spell Of Your Love", "A Million To One", "Something's Missing", "Windows Of The World", and "You Make Me So Mad". Next is Stairsteps – a really heady set from The Five Stairsteps – a record that shows the group looking older (and tougher!) on the cover, and one that also shows some maturity in their sound too! We're not sure what was in the water at the time, but these guys definitely seem to be drinking in a bit of the trippier elements of their generation – from their hippie look on the cover, to the overall mix of material, which includes a few surprising Beatles covers too! Arrangements are by Stan Vincent and Tony Davilo – who create a nice blend of Chicago soul and psych-styled touches – while still allowing the group's harmonies to get sweet at all the right moments – especially on their sublime classic "Ooh Child" – a track you'll recognize right away, and a gem that never gets old! Other titles include the funky "Vice The Lights", versions of "Dear Prudence" and "Getting Better", and the cuts "What About Your Wife", "Sweet As A Peach", and "Up & Down". CD features three bonus tracks – a version of Curtis Mayfield's "Madame Mary", plus "America/Standing" and "The Shadow Of Your Love". CD

Fabio FrizziHouse Of Forbidden Secrets ... CD
Beat (Italy), 2013. New Copy ... $16.99
A great new soundtrack from the legendary Fabio Frizzi – proof that he hasn't lost any of his talents over the course of his many years in film scoring! The music has a really timeless feel – almost more late 70s/early 80s than you'd expect from the more recent vintage of the film – and many numbers have this really spare, lower-end sound which then builds strongly – and is juxtaposed against some bolder keyboard passages that really take off with a dark electric energy! The keys seem to be mostly analogue, which helps for the old school feel of the record – and titles include "Mental Siege", "Life Scraps Underground", "Shadow In The Back Seat", "Samples Of A Hypnotic Session", "No Way Out", and "Reverse Revolution".

Peter Gabriel gets a bit bolder and more confident here in his solo role – coming out with some of the bite of his Rael character from years back, but with a tighter, more focused mode that's pretty darn great! You can hear the early touch of the styles that would wander too strongly into the wrong territory a decade later – but here, things are all pretty darn fresh – wrapped around song themes that feel like very new ones for Gabriel, in ways that almost have you feeling him pick and choose the topics as the record moves on. Production is tight, but never too uptight – and titles include "On The Air", "DIY", "Exposure", "Animal Magic", "Flotsam & Jetsam", "Perspective", and "White Shadow". LP, Vinyl record album

Red Garland's really cooking on this late 50s set – thanks to some added conga work from Ray Barretto on most of the album's tracks – and that great little groove that Barretto's percussion brought to some other soul jazz cookers like this from the time! Garland still gets plenty of space to spin out in that lyrical style he did better than just about anyone else – and core trio rhythm support is from George Joyner on bass and Charlie Persip on drums, who burn nicely when Barretto sits out – although we're definitely partial to the more complicated grooves featured with Ray. Titles include "Rojo", "Mr. Wonderful", "We Kiss In A Shadow", "Darling Je Vous Aime Beaucoup", and the nice groover "Ralph J Gleason Blues". CD

Morton GouldBeyond The Blue Horizon/Goodnight Sweetheart/Love Walked In ... CD
RCA/Vocalion (UK), 1961/1962/1963. New Copy 2 CDs ... $16.99
A trio of early 60s RCA albums from Morton Gould – all of them with a dreamy, late nite sort of mood! Beyond The Blue Horizon has Gould working in a string-heavy variant of mood music that feels more early 50s than early 60s – very lush orchestrations that have the same day-end feel as the image of a sunset on the cover. Titles include "Where Or When", "Stormy Weather", "Stardust", "Time On My Hands", "Poinciana", and "Shadow Waltz". Goodnight Sweetheart is a great album of languid love tunes – all instrumental, and mixed with string and woodwind presentation that are all very much in the best lush style that Morton Gould forged in the 50s – but with some slight adult, sophisticated elements that really live up to the paperback-style image on the cover. Titles include "La Mer", "Tea For Two", "My Ship", "Let's Put Out The Lights", and "September Song". Love Walked In has Morton Gould tripping along with lazy, laidback orchestrations that are filled with slightly illuminating touches – gentle woodwinds mixed with bits of strings, all in a pillowy-soft mix that should send you off to dreamland. Titles include "Love Walked In", "Why Do I Love You", "I Love Thee", "I'm Sure Of Your Love", and "Parlez Moi D'Amour". CD

Subtle brilliance from Japanese pianist Masaru Imada – a record that bubbles beautifully with some spare and personal touches – sometimes slightly free, sometimes wonderfully melodic – always with a strong sense of vision and energy! The group here features Imada on acoustic piano, alongside bass, drums, and some especially great tenor and soprano sax from Ichiro Mimori – often played with some slightly sharp edges, but also a surprising degree of soul – a heartfelt, personal quality that slides alongside Imada's piano in a soaring dance of colors and tones. Titles are all originals, and include "Nostalgia", "Alter", "Gehi Dorian", and "The Shadow Of The Castle". CD

Nobody can do it as well as these guys – tight, but never uptight – smooth, but never sleepy – really right on the money from the production on down to the bottom – the kind of careful, classy soul that almost makes Incognito a genre unto themselves. Titles include "Wind Sorceress", "Rapture", "Hands Up If You Wanna Be Loved", "Hats", "I Couldn't Love You More", "Something Bout July", and "Silver Shadow". CD

JJ Johnson & Kai WindingJay & Kai (Columbia) ... LP
Columbia, Early 50s. Very Good+ ... $9.99
JJ Johnson and Kai Winding at the height of their dual powers – working together here beautifully at a level that both embraces the modern sound of the trombone in larger 50s ensembles, but also offers up the more fluid personality of the instrument in the smaller combo scene! The pair have a great way of coming together at the start, then splitting off to find their own space on the tunes – a wonderful antidote to some of the too-tight trombone lines of the 50s, and a great reminder that there's always a voice behind the horn. The group on the record features Dick Katz on piano and celeste, plus either Bill Crow or Milt Hinton on bass, and Shadow Wilson or Kenny Clarke on drums. Candido plays a bit of percussion on the track "Caribe" – and the pair play tromboniums on the tune "Tromboniums In Motion". Other tracks include "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To", "Happiness Is A Thing Called Joe", "The Song Is You", and "In The Wee Small Hours Of The Morning". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Thad JonesDetroit-New York Junction (RVG remaster edition) ... CD
Blue Note, 1956. Used ... $5.99
Genius early work from the legendary Thad Jones – one of his greatest albums ever, and a sublime tribute to his talents on the trumpet! Jones has a groove here that definitely fits in nicely with the title – some of the more contemplative, expressive modes of his native Detroit scene – honed with a bit more of the sharpness that New York players were bringing to hardbop at the time! Jones' trumpet is warmly lyrical, but never in a sleepy, or too-easy sort of way – and the group here has plenty of nice edges, thanks to killer tenor sax from the under-rated Billy Mitchell, guitar from Kenny Burrell, piano from Tommy Flanagan, bass from Oscar Pettiford, and drums from Shadow Wilson. There's a tremendous balance between gentleness and depth going on here – and the album has an unbounded sense of creativity that easily makes it one of the most sparkling Blue Note sides from the time! Titles include "Little Girl Blue", "Blue Room", "Tar Riff", "Zec", and "Scratch". CD

Sebesky's got those lush, full charts that we love so much from his classic orchestral charts of the 60s and 70s – while Matthews is a bit tighter and more swinging, but still farther from his funky work of the 70s than you might expect. Klugh's guitar hits loads of those classic colorful tones throughout – and titles include "Theme From The Pawnbroker", "The Ook Of Love", "Nature Boy", "A Certain Smile", "The Shadow Of Your Smile", and "Stay Gold".

First up is E No Entanto E Preciso Cantar – a wonderful 70s session from bossa legend Lyra, and a set that's got a different sound than some of his earlier work – but one that's still plenty great overall! The mode is a bit more subdued than before – still with bossa at the roots, but also production and instrumentation that nod a bit more towards the singer/songwriter generation of the time – almost with a European feel at time. Roberto Menescal produced, and arrangements by Theo Barros have a slow-building, unassuming quality that's really great. Chico Buarque guests on the groover "Essa Passou", and other titles include "Identidade", "Rio Vermelho", "Primavera", "O Pregoeiro", "Ate Parece", and "I See Me Passing By". Eu & Elas is from a few years later, but equally great – never too full or overdone, with arrangements that still shadow a bit of older bossa orchestrations, but which are a bit more laidback and intimate overall. The sound is incredible, and Lyra's vocals are recorded in that flanged-out way that was used beautifully in Brazil at the time – spread speaker to speaker with a closeness that we really love. Titles include "Elas", "Isabel", "Despedida", "O Amor Mais Triste", and "Nothing Night". CD
