✨✧ Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassBeat Of The Brass ... CD
A&M/Shout Factory, 1968. Used ... $6.99
Beautifully compressed pop from Herb Alpert – a session that's still got the traditional Tijuana Brass style, but which also displays a more restrained, more adult approach to instrumental pop! The rhythms are nicely changed out more than before here – stretching out with interwoven exotic touches and sweeter A&M pop – all coming together at a level that's far more sophisticated than you might guess if you've only got a version of Herb that's reduced to simple cliche! Herb also makes a key vocal appearance on the song "This Guy's In Love With You" – the group's first #1 single, and the beginning of a great run of Alpert vocalizations. Other tracks include "The Robin", "Slick", "Panama", "A Beautiful Friend", "She Touched Me", and "Thanks For The Memory". CD

✨✧ Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassHerb Alpert's Ninth ... CD
A&M/Shout Factory, 1967. Used ... $4.99
Wonderfully jaunty and jagged work from trumpeter Herb Alpert – and a session that has him opening up the Tijuana Brass groove a bit more than usual! There's clearly an influence here of the Brazilian sound that was showing up strongly at A&M Records at the time – heard to greatest effect on the album's version of Chico Buarque's "A Banda", but also in gentler, more subtle ways that seem to emerge in other tunes that trade the group's older sound for one that has more of a bossa sense of subtlety. Also, there's some great A&M pop that's beginning to emerge here too – as in the album's great takes on "The Happening" and "Love So Fine" – both of which really sound beautiful here! Other tracks include "Cowboys & Indians", "Flea Bag", "Love Nest", and "Bud". CD

✨✧ Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassLost Treasures – Rare & Unreleased ... CD
A&M/Shout Factory, 1960s. Used ... $9.99
Genius, pure genius – a wonderful collection of 22 rare numbers by Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass – all recorded during the group's years at A&M Records, and including a number of previously unreleased tunes! The sound here is completely sublime – way more than just the simple themes that you might expect from the TJB at the time, especially since there's a fair bit of numbers from Herb's late 60s years, when he was really opening into a wider range of modes explored by A&M Records on their Bacharach, Brazilian, soundtrack, and singer-songwriter releases. The whole thing's a key treasure in our 60s collection of instrumental pop – one that fills in a space we didn't even know we had! Titles include "Alone Again (Naturally)", "Julius & Me", "Happy Hour", "Promises Promises", "Whistlestar", "Killing Me Softy", "Chris", "Popcorn", "Flowers On The Wall", and "Up Cherry Street". CD

Mel Torme, Francis Faye, Johnny Hartman, & OthersGeorge Gershwin's Porgy & Bess ... CD
Bethlehem/Shout Factory, 1956. Used 2CD ... $6.99
One of our favorite recordings ever of George Gershwin's Porgy & Bess – done by Bethlehem Records in the mid 50s, and featuring nearly every one of the label's great talents at the time! The choice of the lead characters is a bit odd – as Mel Torme plays Porgy and Francis Faye plays Bess – but both singers are actually pretty darn great for the set, and really bring a lot out of the tunes. Plus, the other artists on the set really keep things interesting – as the collection features vocal performances by Johnny Hartman, Frank Rosolino, Betty Roche, Bob Dorough, and Sallie Blair. Plus, the whole thing's presented as Gershwin wrote it – complete with narration by Al Jazzbo Collins, and a number of strong instrumental passages. Music is performed by groups led by Russ Garcia, Duke Ellington, Pat Moran, and Stan Levy – and players are an array of the best of both the New York and LA scenes at the time! Plus, this great reissue version features a full 29 minute bonus track – the "Porgy & Bess Suite", which is an extended instrumental performed by Russ Garcia. Also comes with a really great 48 page booklet too! CD

✨✧ Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassGoing Places ... CD
A&M/Shout Factory, 1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Herb Alpert's definitely Going Places by the time of this set – and his trademark Tijuana Brass sound proves itself to be a great fit for just about any sort of number! The album kicks off with the wonderful "Tijuana Taxi", a sublimely jaunty tune that almost takes Herb into Bacharach territory – and which is followed up by the even-greater "Spanish Flea" – an ear-popping anthem that's one of the greatest bits of 60s instrumental pop ever recorded! And over and above those two tunes, the album's still got plenty more to offer too – a wonderful array of tracks all given the Tijuana touch, with titles that include "More & More Amor", "Mae", "Walk Don't Run", "Felicia", and "Cinco De Mayo".

✨✧ Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassSounds Like Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass ... CD
A&M/Shout Factory, 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sounds like Herb Alpert, but it grooves in ways that we hardly expected – playful, creative, and filled with so many more rhythms than just the Tijuana groove we might have thought! There's a real deepening sense of instrumental pop going on here – as Herb explores some of the darker strains brought into the market by younger groups and artists on the scene, and through some of the cross-cultural recordings that were opening up as the global music market expanded in the mid 60s. The Brass still get in plenty of their jaunty licks in the set, but there's also more of a sense of Herb as a standout man of his own – a mature, all-adult sound that's got some great brooding emotion from time to time. Titles include "Casino Royale", "Wade In The Water", "Shades Of Blue", "Bo Bo", "Lady Godiva", "Town Without Pity", "Gotta Lot Of Livin To Do", and "The Charmer". CD

✨✧ Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassSRO ... CD
A&M/Shout Factory, 1966. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A standing room ovation in the A&M Studios – certainly the kind of reception we'd imagine Herb would get during these glory years of his career! The set's one of the most no-nonsense Tijuana Brass sessions of the 60s – a tightly crafted album that has a bit more jazz than usual sneaking in on some of the tunes, but still enough of that snapping, punchy rhythmic approach that makes Herb and the group so great! As usual, the fluidity here is the strongest point – as the A&M touch takes a sound that should be hokey, and flips it into something really really groovy through warm use of compression in the studio. Titles include "Blue Sunday", "Bean Bag", "Work Song", "Our Day Will Come", "Mexican Road Race", and "Freight Train Joe". CD

✨✧ Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassWhat Now My Love ... CD
A&M/Shout Factory, 1966. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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". CD

✨✧ Herb Alpert & The Tijuana BrassWhipped Cream & Other Delights (with bonus tracks) ... CD
A&M/Shout Factory, 1965. Used ... Out Of Stock
Trumpety magic from Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass – a record that's known not only for its classic cover of a model dipped in whipped cream, but also for it's tremendously groovy groove! The Tijuana sound is very firmly in place by the time of this set – Mexican-inspired, but compressed down into a sweet little LA groove in that magical A&M way – never too over the top, done in a way that takes a previously-hokey brassy sound, and smoothes it out for the Now Sound generation! Titles include the hit single "Whipped Cream", plus "Taste Of Honey", "Green Peppers", "Bittersweet Samba", "Lemon Tree", "Ladyfingers", and "Butterball". Includes the bonus tracks "Rosemary" and "Blueberry Park". CD

✨✧ Donny HathawayDonny Hathaway Live/In Performance ... CD
Atco/Shout Factory, 1972/1980. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Both Donny Hathaway concert albums in a single set – both on US CD for the first time! CD 1 features Donny Hathaway Live – massively beautiful work from the legendary Donny! After two studio albums that had firmly put him on the map as one of the 70s best soul talents, Atco had the genius to have Donny record this live album before very enthusiastic crowds in Hollywood and New York. The result is one of the best soul albums ever – one that shows a totally different side of Donny, and which has him jamming with a smaller, hipper, jazz-oriented group in long versions of some of his best tracks. Features a massive 12 minute version of "The Ghetto", which has loads of excellent instrumental breakdowns, a 13 minute version of "Voices Inside (Everything Is Everything)", a superior version of the track "Little Ghetto Boy", which was only ever on a soundtrack, and covers of "What's Going On" and "Jealous Guy" that really transform them from the original versions. Very similar to the classic Curtis Mayfield 2LP live set on Curtom – and with a similar "Chicago studio soulster goes jazzy and intimate" feel. In Performance was issued after Donny's untimely death, and features rare live material from his classic years – most recorded during the same concerts on Donny Hathaway Live! As the fame of his first concert album will attest, Donny's an extremely wonderful live performer, with a wealth of talents that show that his studio work is only half the picture of his soulful creativity. Includes a great version of "Sack Full Of Dreams", plus "Nu-Po", "Song For You", "I Love You More Than You'll Ever Know", and "To Be Youg, Gifted, & Black". 2CD set features new remastering too – better than ever!

Instant FunkWitch Doctor (2LP DJ version) ... LP
Salsoul, 1979. Very Good- 2LP ... $11.99
An album of tribal brilliance from Instant Funk – and a set that really has the group coming into their own! Instant Funk got their start as a backing combo for other acts on the Philly scene, but by the time of this classic album for Salsoul, they'd turned into a more fully-fledged group – sporting a great lead singer in James Carmichael, who worked great with their style of blending funky club and soul! The lead vocals here are stronger than before from the group – but their instrumentation is also razor-sharp too – honed to perfection through great arrangements from trumpeter Larry Davis, and focused strongly through super-studio help from producer Bunny Sigler, engineer Bob Blank, and remixer Larry Levan – who added a little extra punch to a few of the best cuts. Titles include "Witch Doctor", "I Had A Dream", "Bodyshine", "Slap Slap Lickedy Lap", "I Want To Love You", and "Scream & Shout". LP, Vinyl record album
(Special 2LP DJ-only version! Cover has a factory sticker & some moderate wear.)
