DJ Shadow & Cut ChemistRenegades Of Rhythm – DJ Shadow & Cut Chemist Play Afrika Bambaataa (tour book) ... Book
Boo Hooray, 2014. New Copy ... $33.99 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

✨✧ Astrud GilbertoShadow Of Your Smile ... LP
Verve, 1965. Very Good+ ... $16.99
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

LaBelleMoon Shadow ... LP
Warner, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
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! LP, Vinyl record album

Shadow VignettesBirth Of A Notion ... LP
Sessom, 1985. Near Mint- ... $7.99
Chicago reed player Ed Wilkerson (also known as the leader of 8 Bold Souls, and a member of the Ethnic Heritage Ensemble) formed this group in the 80's as sort of a mixed large band of Chicago avant garde players, but with more of a focus on tighter swingin' sounds. This, their only LP, includes the cuts "Strollin", "Quiet Resolution", "Feets Of Clay", and "Honky Tonk Bud", which also yielded a video, that was shown quite a bit in Chicago at the time.

Pinky WintersShadow Of Your Smile (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Cellar Door/M&I (Japan), 1983. Used ... $14.99
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".

ShadowLove Lite ... CD
Elektra (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... On August 18, 2015
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". CD

✨✧ Gato BarbieriShadow Of The Cat ... CD
Peak, 2002. Used ... Out Of Stock
A nice return to form for Gato Barbieri – still somewhat smooth, as in his later years – but with some great Latin backings on a number of the tracks! Barbieri's tenor still has those sharp edges we love, and even when things get a bit more soul-based on some of the cuts here, the feel is still like some of Gato's late 70s sides – maybe not as adventurous as the early years, but still played with a nice degree of feeling, at times when most other players might just lay back and not really give things their all. Other players include Russ Freeman on electric guitar, Rombero Lubambo on acoustic guitar, Herb Albert on trumpet, and Jason Miles on keyboards – and titles include "El Chico", "Tierra Del Fuego", "Ai Ai Ai Ai", "Para Todos", "Bliss", "Last Tango", "Si Tu Me Quiseras", and "Shadow Of The Cat".

✨✧ Harry NilssonPandemonium Shadow Show (180 gram mono edition) ... LP
RCA/Sundazed, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ VariousSophisticated Boom Boom – The Shadow Morton Story ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/1960s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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.

Harry Allen/Jan Lundgren QuartetQuietly There ... 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".

A&M, 1966. Very Good ... $1.99
The genius of this set is summed up in the tune "Magic Trumpet" – perhaps one of the best estimations of Herb's talents we could think of! The tune, like the entire album, is a fluid bit of magic that takes an older brass-driven mode into the far groovier styles of the 60s – an approach that fuses all the horns around Herb's boldly stated lead, and slides them all around in jaunty rhythms that are a perfect blend of the A&M groove and an imagined Latin past! Titles include "Freckles", "Magic Trumpet", "Five Minutes More", "Shadow Of Your Smile", "Plucky", "So What's New", and "It Was A Very Good Year". LP, Vinyl record album

Beady BelleSongs From A Decade – The Best Of Beady Belle (3 CD set) ... CD
Jazzland (Norway), 2000s/Early 2010s. New Copy 3 CDs ... $19.99
A stunning collection – one that features all the best bits of this group that we totally love – plus a bonus live set too! Beady Belle are wonderful – a Scandinavian group, but one who've gotten plenty of play over here in the underground soul set for years – thanks to this universal groove in their music, and completely sublime lyrics and vocals from lead singer Beate Lech – an artist we'd rank right up there with one of the best soul singers on either side of the Atlantic! The first 2CDs in the set focus on the standout tracks from the group's all-great albums on the Jazzland label – titles that include "Skin Deep", "Turn Back Time", "Apron Strings", "Saved", "Diamond In The Rough", "Runaway Mind", "Shadow", "Intermission Music", "When My Anger Starts To Cry", "Half Truth", "Big Balloon", and "Touch Of Paradise". Then, CD3 features a live set from Oslo in 2013 – with titles that include "My Name On The World", "Closer", "Shadow", "Skin Deep", "Come Home", and "Every Moment". CD

✨✧ George Benson/Jack McDuffNew Boss Guitar Of George Benson ... LP
Prestige, 1964. Very Good- ... $3.99
The first album ever cut by George Benson as a leader – a cooker of a soul jazz set, recorded back when George was the guitarist in Jack McDuff's classic 60s quartet! The album's almost a McDuff Quartet one – since Jack's on Hammond and Red Holloway is on tenor – but the group's slightly different too, with the surprising additions of Montego Joe on drums, and Ronnie Boykins on bass! Benson's guitar is amazing throughout – sharp-edged and played with a tightness that's quite different than most of his later work – and titles include "Shadow Dancers", "The Sweet Alice Blues", "Just Another Sunday", "Easy Living", and "Rock A Bye".

Solid single by Bleep Bloop for DJ Shadow's Liquid Amber label – with grimy beats, rumbling bass laying the groundwork and spacey synth rays lighting up the atmosphere! "10 Watt Lazers" is a blast from the start, and appropriately titled with ray gun synth melodies and splintering beats. "Denial" has tense hip hop indebted vibe, and a really thick atmosphere, still with plenty of spacey touches. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Atco, Late 50s/Early 60s. Used ... $5.99
Sure, they were hitmakers – but we love these guys, and find them to be one of the most radical vocal groups of all time! Under the impeccable guidance of Lieber & Stoller, the group recorded some of the fiercest vocal numbers of the 50s – mixing incredibly soulful vocals with an almost cartoonish ability to conjure up little pictures with words. A dozen great numbers in all: "Poison Ivy", "Along Came Jones", "Down In Mexico", "The Shadow Knows", "I'm A Hog For You", "Charlie Brown", "Yakety Yak", "Zing! Went The Strings Of My Heart", "That Is Rock & Roll", "Young Blood", "Sweet Georgia Brown" and "Searchin'". CD

✨✧ Cocoon (Gunter Hampel)While The Recording Engineer Sleeps ... CD
Staubgold (Austria), 1985. New Copy ... $16.99
We can't imagine the recording engineer sleeping while this set was being recorded – as the sound here is plenty powerful, and this unusual post-prog blend of jazz, rock, and electronic elements! The group features the legendary Gunter Hampel on vibes, piano, and reeds – and Gunter also sings a bit too, alongside another vocalist in the group who's got an even rawer, raspier sound – somewhere in the territory of Mark E Smith or Mark Stewart at the same time! And maybe The Fall is a good point of comparison here, as the record definitely moves beyond any sort of simple style – and instead has this freewheeling pastiche of musical elements that also seems to infect the vocals as well. Titles include "Ventilators Change Into Airplanes", "Bag Lady", "I Can See Voices", "While The Recording Engineer Sleeps", and "The Shadow Man". CD

Sammy Davis JrSammy Davis Jr At The Cocoanut Grove ... LP
Reprise, 1963. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $4.99
Insanely wonderful stuff! Live, Sammy D was the most entertaining of all the rat pack – as you'll hear on this excellent concert from 1963 – one of the few recordings that really captures Sammy's genius in all aspects of his talents! The album's got some great straight jazz vocal numbers, a bit of showy hip talk, a tiny bit of Sammy's impersonations of other stars (a lost talent that's rarely survived on other reissues), and a few surprise numbers that are really great. The album's worth it alone for Sammy's fantastic West Side Story medley – done in a swinging jazzy way, with only bongos for accompaniment! Other highlights include "Frank Talk", "What Kind Of Fool Am I", "Once In A Lifetime", "Sammy Looks At Old Movies", "Me & My Shadow", and "Jam Session". LP, Vinyl record album

Bob DoroughBut For Now ... CD
Enja (Germany), 2015. New Copy ... $14.99 15.99
One of the coolest singers you'll ever hope to hear – and an artist who's still incredibly wonderful, always fresh, and completely charming – even after decades of recording! Bob Dorough works here in a trio with his own piano, the bass of Tony Marino, and alto of Michael Hornstein – the last of which gets in a few solos between Bob's own tremendous vocal passages – those warm, witty ways of delivering a tune like nobody else – no matter if the words are Dorough's own, or a compelling re-phrasing of a standard! We'd easily rank this one up there with some of Bob's best – especially amidst his live recordings – and titles include "Baltimore Oriole", "The Girl From Ipanema", "But For Now", "The Shadow Of Your Summer", "Better Than Anything", and "Take Five".

Bill EvansFurther Conversations With Myself ... LP
Verve, 1967. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $7.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

Numero, 2013. Used ... $7.99
A warm batch of instrumental beats and atmospherics from Express Rising – and a much-anticipated second project from funk archivist Dante Carfagna! Dante's a name you probably know best from his work writing liner notes or Wax Poetics – and helping out in countless important compilations over the years – but a decade ago, Dante dropped his first mysterious project under the Express Rising name – and finally returns here with a second album! The sound is even more enticing this time around – still drawing a bit from the world of DJ Shadow – a frequent Carfagna collaborator on archive projects – but the sound is also surprisingly warm and lyrical too – bits of beats, layers of older sounds, and these spare keyboard bits all served up together in a style that's really unique – and which avoids any of the cliches of both the downtempo world, and the instrumental hip hop scene The approach is often quite poetic, yet still soulful as well – and the whole thing's got a laidback vibe that's neither sleepy nor muddled – a really sort of special space between the grooves. Titles include "Horse Opera", "Dark Early", "Answering Echo So Near", "Winter The Heart", "A Treasure Smile", "Rooms Between Us", and "Memorabilia". CD

The tinkling jazzy piano of Clare Fischer is heard here on this rare one-off session he did for Columbia – a bit different than some of his other 60s work, but still plenty darn great! The record's not as crazy as some of his Latin LPs, or as the work he did with Cal Tjader, but this one has a really nice edge to it, and the orchestrations are very free and soaring – quite wonderful overall, and a perfect setting for Clare's piano! 11 tracks in all, including "I Remember Spring", "On A Clear Day You Can See Forever", "When Autumn Comes", "Here's That Rainy Day" and "Shadow Of Your Smile".

Eddie FisherThird Cup ... LP
Cadet, 1969. Good ... $5.99
An amazing album by the great guitarist Eddie Fisher – and completely unlike his later funk records! Eddie plays stripped down jazz with a small combo that includes organ by Robert Selby, bass by Paul Jackson, and some rhythm guitar by Phil Westmoreland – and the twin-guitar approach creates this super-dope style that's light years ahead of its time, with a sophistication that points the way to later mid 70s work on labels like CTI and Kudu! Eddie's guitar work is an incredible exercise in spareness and soulfulness – best heard on the fantastic "Third Cup", a long drawn-out jazz stepper that's got to be heard to be believed. The cut's been a favorite on the Chicago jazz stepper's scene for years – and it alone is worth the price of the album. However, the record features some other wonderful stuff – like a sublime version of "Shadow Of Your Smile" that runs for a bubbling 12 minutes – plus the originals "Shut Up", "Scorched Earth", and "Two By Two".

Five SpecialSpecial Edition ... CD
Elektra/Wounded Bird, 1980. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
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". CD

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

Herman FosterOne & Only ... CD
Timeless/Solid (Japan), 1984. New Copy ... $13.99
The one and only Herman Foster, indeed – a pianist who only cut a handful of records, but always managed to leave his mark! You might know Foster from his wonderful work with Lou Donaldson in the early 60s Blue Note years, or his bluesy albums as a leader for Columbia around the same time – but here, the pianist has this lyrical flow that's really amazing – and quite a change from his style of the early years! As before, Foster really knows how to do a lot with a little – make each note count, and in this way that's mighty powerful, even on the few mellow moments – and he gets some strong accompaniment from the full, round bass of Jeff Fuller, and the drums of Victor Jones. Titles include "Monsterbeach Blues", "Softly As In A Morning Sunrise", "The Shadow Of Your Smile", and "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To". CD

Beat (Italy), 2013. New Copy ... $11.99
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".

Real World, 1978. Used ... $6.99
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". CD
