Blue Sky BoysTreasury Of Rare Gems From The Past ... CD
King/Gusto, Late 40s. New Copy ... $6.99 9.98
Some definite gems from the Blue Sky Boys – a duo who recorded early in the country music years of King Records, and who never stayed together long enough to earn the fame of labelmates like The Stanleys or Delmore Brothers! The Boys – Bill and Earl Bolick – have a sound that's wonderfully sweet, almost Louvin-like at times – as they work through both a mix of familiar tunes and spiritual numbers, all with a nicely stripped-down style that feels like it came right from the hills to the King Records studios – with often just their own mandolin and guitar for accompaniment. CD features 16 tracks in all – including "Turn Your Radio On", "Dust On The Bible", "Row Us Over The Tide", "There's Been A Change", "Picture From Life's Other Side", "As Long As I Live", "Tugboat", and "The Last Letter".

Clear Blue SkyClear Blue Sky ... CD
Vertigo/Esoteric (UK), 1970. New Copy ... $13.99
An insanely ripping little record – one that comes on with all the raw power of the heaviest work by Black Sabbath or Led Zeppelin at the time – even though these guys never hit that sort of fame! The group's a trio with an incredibly deft touch – able to make the simple combination of guitar, bass, and drums explode in wonderfully fresh ways – with some quick-changes that really leave us breathless, and really show off their amazing talents – but never in a way that's overdone at all – as these guys have more of the bottom-end, blues-inspired appeal of Zeppelin during their early years. Vocals are by guitarist John Simms, who's also got a wild way of singing – and titles include "The Rocket Ride", "I'm Comin Home", "Birdcatcher", "My Heaven", "You Mystify", and "Tool Of My Trade".

✨✧ SkySky 2 ... LP
Arista, 1980. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The big second album from Sky – a record that's twice as long as the first, and which gives the group even more room for instrumental explorations! As before, the guitar sounds here are both acoustic and electric – played by both John Williams, the virtuoso musician with classical roots, and Kevin Peek, who's got more rock experience – and the group also features really strong keyboards from Francis Monkman, plus bass from the great Herbie Flowers, and thundering drums from Tristan Fry! The sound is a balance of fullness and space – much more so than other fusion records of this nature – and while Williams' solos sometimes have older elements in their phrasing, the overall sound is pretty progressive – in the best 70s mainstream way. Titles include "Fifo", "Sahara", "Dance Of The Little Fairies", "Ballet Volta", "Gavotte & Variations", "El Cielo", and "Tristan's Magic Garden". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Captain SkyConcerned Party No 1 ... LP
TEC, 1980. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
One of the greatest albums by this super-stylized funkster from Chicago! Captain Sky followed very firmly in the P-Funk footsteps – using lots of bass and rocking rhythms to carve out a space-themed groove that had plenty of cool touches! And more than that, the Captain's style was equally well suited to the emerging 80s groove era – and worked well with a nice dose of slight electric touches – not totally wikki-wikki, but certainly setting the stage for that sound! Titles include "Elementary School Of Funk", "Sir Jam A Lot", "Trace Of Love", "Bubble Gum (I Chewz You)", "Tootsie Rock", and "Let Me Come Inside". LP, Vinyl record album

Miles DavisMiles In The Sky (Original Master Recording) ... CD
Columbia/Mobile Fidelity, 1968. Used Gatefold ... $24.99
Miles Davis makes the electric transition – in this groundbreaking set from the late 60s! The classic mid 60s quintet is still in place here – Wayne Shorter on tenor, Herbie Hancock on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Tony Williams on drums – but the sound is looser, freer, and more spacious – often echoing some of the rhythmic concerns that would dominate Miles' music in a few more years, but without as much of a bombastic sound. Williams' drums are amazing – fierce one minute, then fading the next – and Herbie Hancock's use of both electric and acoustic piano really points at his own directions in coming years. George Benson plays one one track – "Paraphernalia" – introducing electric guitar to the Miles Davis sound – and other long tracks on the set include "Stuff", "Black Comedy", and "Country Son". CD

Atlantic, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $14.99
One of Aretha Franklin's greatest records – and a complicated batch of jazzy tunes that features arrangements and production by Quincy Jones! The record breaks way past the stock southern soul style of some of Aretha's earlier work for Atlantic – and it features a more sophisticated style that hits a number of different moods, and which shows off Aretha's strong commitment to growth as an artist. Features a semi-hit reading of King Pleasure's old classic, "Moody's Mood For Love", plus "Sister From Texas", "Somewhere", "Angel", and "That's The Way I Feel About Cha". LP, Vinyl record album

Curtis FullerCabin In The Sky ... CD
Impulse (Japan), 1962. Used ... $18.99
A very unique album by Curtis Fuller – quite different than any of his other records at the time! The session has Curtis blowing on tunes from the score to Cabin In The Sky – arranged by Manny Albam, and performed by a large group that includes Freddy Hubbard, Hank Jones, and Bob Brookmeyer. Far from the snoozy outing that you might guess from the title, the album's actually a deeply spiritual album that has Fuller playing in warm rich tones that he rarely achieves elsewhere. The backing is sensitive, and doesn't get in the way – and instead creates a magical pillow of sound that allows Fuller to craft these warm and sweet notes that are really wonderful. Titles include "The Prayer", "Savannah", "Love Turned The Light Out", and "Love Me Tomorrow". CD

Mavis GallantFairly Good Time (with Green Water Green Sky) ... Book
New York Review Of Books, 1959/1970. New Copy ... $4.99 16.95
Two novels from Mavis Gallant – the Canadian writer who spent most of her important years in Paris, from which she sent countless short pieces to the New Yorker! Fairly Good Time is one of the longest works from Gallant's Paris years – the story of a Canadian widow in the city, uncomfortably navigating its society, while often turning inward – in prose that moves between familiar dialogue and narrative through correspondence and other short pieces of text that are juxtaposed with the story. Throughout it all, there's a restless sense of anxiety from the main character – which drives the book ahead with a surprisingly strong pace. Also included here is Green Water Green Sky – one of Gallant's first novels – set amidst Venice, Cannes, and Paris in the postwar years. 376 pages, with an introduction by Peter Orner. Book

Marcia GriffithsNaturally/Steppin ... CD
Sky Note/Doctor Bird (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... $11.99
A pair of albums from Marcia Griffiths – the well-titled queen of reggae at the end of the 70s! First up is Naturally, a fantastic album from Marcia Griffiths – very much the kind of material that made her one of the best female singers on the Jamaican scene in the 70s! The set's got a soulful sparkle that's undeniable – music that could have, should have (if things were right) gotten Marcia much bigger fame in the US crossover market of the time – as these songs work equally well as laidback soul numbers, even with strong reggae rhythms – thanks to the warmth and class of the vocals! A number of tracks are originals, and titles include "Dreamland", "Tell Me Now", "Melody Life", "Survival Is The Game", "Feel Like Jumping", "Mark My Word", and "Truly". Steppin features Marcia Griffiths at the height of her powers – singing wonderfully and soulfully, in a style that almost transcends her Jamaican roots! While other reggae singers of the period were maybe polishing things up a bit, to reach larger commercial fame, Griffiths seems to be stepping back more into soul, while still working with familiar Kingston rhythms – crafting this mode that's completely compelling, and which has as much personal feeling as some of the more powerful social themes of the roots era. Errol Brown recorded the tracks at Treasure Isle, and titles include "It's Impossible", "Steppin Out Of Babylon", "Where Were Why", "Why There Is No Love", "Give & You Get", and "I'm Hurting Inside".

A crossover club classic from Dan Hartman – a set that hit big with the mainstream audiences at the time, but which also had enough raw disco talent to hold onto longtime fans of the music too! Dan sings lead vocals, and handles most of the instruments at the core – but he's also got some super-heavy assistance from arranger Gene Page – who give the long tracks a mighty majestic finish – pushing Hartman's core ideas into soaringly soulful territory from the very first note! Tom Moulton also mixed the whole record – furthering the classic club sound of the proceedings – and titles include the huge hits "Instant Replay" and "Countdown/This Is It", the funky "Chocolate Box", and the tracks "Time & Space", "Double O Love", and "Love Is A Natural". CD features great 12" bonus tracks – "Instant Replay (12" mix)", "Instant Replay (replayed)", "This Is It (12" mix)", and "Countdown (12" mix)" – all nice and long! CD

David JohansenIn Style ... LP
Blue Sky, 1979. Near Mint- ... $3.99
David Johansen's second post-New York Dolls solo record – and the first one where he really sheds the feral rock vibe – but with Mick Ronson on board as co-producer, it's still got plenty of pomp! David would go on to take many creative detours – but in this first real stretch, he's bringing in some Motown influences – with some R&B backing vocals here and there, along with ome sax, piano and other smoothed out touches. That said, it's not that huge of a jump – with some ruggedness and grit reminiscent of his earlier work –and it's got a bunch of really good songs. Titles include "Melody", "She", "Big City", "She Knew She Was Falling In Love", "Swaheto Woman", "Wreckless Crazy", "Flamingo Road" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Sky Academy/Ropeadope, 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful voyage of self-discovery from drummer Ollie Howell – but a set that also clearly gets its strength his collaboration with the other members of the session too! Ollie adds in a bit of electronics with his drums, but the core energy here mostly comes from the acoustic exchange between the tenor of Duncan Eagles, trumpet of Henry Spencer, piano of Matt Robinson, and bass of Max Luthert – players who often create these building blocks of sound that soar to the sky with sort of an understated spiritual vibe – very contemporary in approach, yet also with much deeper roots of inspiration. The group also features Ant Law on guitar, and Robinson plays a bit of Fender Rhodes – but the most haunting elements, to us, come from that acoustic core that really drives the sound. Titles include "Almost Tomorrow", "Rise & Fall", "Shadows", "Knew", "Balancing Stones", "In Truth", and "The Unknown". CD

Amen CornerRound Amen Corner – The Complete Deram Recordings ... CD
Deram/RPM (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $11.99
Sweet jangle pop from Amen Corner – one of the sunniest UK groups of the late 60s! The group checked in big with their hit "Bend Me Shape Me" – and follow through here with an equally catchy, equally groovy set of tracks – tunes that really let them move past the straighter format of a hit, and work through a whole range of excellent modes in the space of an album! There's a much more expansive style here than we'd expect – as even familiar tunes are handled with playful arrangements and offbeat instrumental flourishes – more than enough to take a core mod pop groove, and push it into some cool pop psych territory. Titles include "Expressway To Your Heart", "Good Times", "Lost & Found", "Gin House", "Something You've Got", "Judge Rumple Crassila", and "Bend Me Shape Me". CD features bonus tracks added to the original Deram album – including "The World Of Broken Hearts", "Nema", "Satisnek The Job's Worth", "Run Run Run", and "High In The Sky". CD

BlackbyrdsBlackbyrds ... LP
Fantasy, 1974. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $24.99
A funky jazz treasure – and the band's landmark first album! The Blackbyrds were a legendary 70s combo that were discovered by Donald Byrd while he was teaching at Howard University – and they had a tight style that mixed raw funk influences with smoother jazz playing, creating a sound that was different from many of their contemporaries, and which pushed funk and soul into a whole new level. Byrd's work with the band was as groundbreaking as Larry Mizell's work on his own Blue Note albums – and coincidentally, Larry Mizzell's Sky High Productions handles the studio chores for the set – but in a way that's much more sharply funky than his albums with Byrd! Titles include the tight choppy funk tracks "Do It, Fluid" and "Funky Junkie", plus other nice groovers like "Summer Love", "Gut Level", and "The Runaway". LP, Vinyl record album

John BlairWe Belong Together ... LP
CTI, 1977. Near Mint- ... $6.99
A strange bit of soul from the later years of CTI – and one of the few albums we've ever seen from the enigmatic John Blair! Blair is an artist with a bit of a cosmic vibe – kind of a spacey sense of soul that maybe fits his appearance on the cover – and which is couched here in kind of a flanged-out rock style that's a bit different than some of the other CTI sessions of the time! D avid Matthews handled the arrangements – mixing in a bit of his funk with some fuzzier currents – and the great Googie Coppola joins John on vocals on a number of cuts, using a spacey soul style that's mighty nice. Titles include "Feather Lite & Honey Smooth", "I'm A Wizard", "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds", "Moonlight Serenade", "We Belong Together", and "Don't Feel That Way No More". LP, Vinyl record album
(In the textured cover, with lightly bent corners.)

Blonde On BlondeRebirth (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Ember/Esoteric (UK), 1970. New Copy ... $7.99
These guys may have a name that evokes a Bob Dylan album, but their sound is something else entirely – a magical blend of simple instruments in a really unique way – and a songwriting voice that really sets these guys apart from the rest! There were so many great UK groups at the end of the 60s, that possible giants like these guys often got buried in the release schedule of the labels – even though they've got a fully-formed sound right from the start, and a lyrical confidence that's very unique. The music's a bit psych, and not entirely prog – but also reaching for something bigger than any sound of a few years before – and even though the instrumentation is by the very familiar trio of guitar, bass, and drums, there's definitely something special about it – as is also the case with the lead vocals of singer David Thomas. Titles including "Castles In The Sky", "Circles", "Broken Hours", "Heart Without A Home", "Colour Questions", "You'll Never Know Me/Release" and "Time Is Passing". CD features bonus tracks – "Circles (single version)", "Castles In The Sky (alt version)", and "Time Is Passing (alt version)". CD

Blues MagoosGulf Coast Bound ... LP
ABC, 1970. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $14.99
Amazing work from the Blues Magoos – stretching way beyond their roots as a garage rock band! The album's free, open, with a really jazzy style that shows that these guys had been soaking up plenty of influences from the left end of the singer/songwriter spectrum – and had also been spending a lot of time learning how to play their instruments! At one level, the album's chock-a-block with hip tunes that veer into blue eyed soul territory – and at another, it's got some jazzy inflections that move into the mind-expanding territory reached by a rare few other rock/soul groups of the time. Percussion is wonderful on the set, and Pee Wee Ellis plays a lot of great sax on the set – and the real treat is excessive use of vibes, which makes for some cool sounds on a number of tracks. Includes the long groover "Can't Get Enough Of You", which features a great percussion breakdown in the middle – plus "Gulf Coast Bound", "Sea Breeze Express", "Magoo's Blues", "Tonight The Sky's About To Cry", and "Slow Down Sundown". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout hole & some pen.)

Tom BrowneBrother Brother – The GRP/Arista Collection ... CD
GRP/Soulmusic.com (UK), Late 70s/1980s. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99
Soaring sounds from trumpeter Tom Browne – a younger player who really took the torch, and opened up a new path forward from early 70s electric funk experiments by artists like Donald Byrd and Freddie Hubbard! With work on this set, Browne is clearly the heir apparent to the CTI sound of Hubbard, or the Larry Mizell work at Blue Note by Byrd – and finds a perfect space between jazz and soul throughout – using his horn on grooves that start out in familiar jazz funk and fusion modes, then move into some great 80s groove and old school styles too. 2CD set features 29 tracks in all – including a few mixes from singles – and titles include "Magic (12" mix)", "Throw Down", "Funkin For Jamaica", "I Never Was A Cowboy", "Brother Brother", "Her Silent Smile", "Cruisin", "Rockin Radio", "Mr Business", "Brighter Tomorrow", "Charisma", "Bye Gones (ext rmx)", "Can't Give It Away", "My Latin Sky", "A Message", "Hit Man", "Secret Fantasy (ext)", "Fungi Mama/Bebopafunkadiscolypso", "Midnight Interlude", "Angeline", and "Tighs High".

Billy ButlerBilly Butler Plays Via Galactica ... CD
Kilmarnock, 1973. New Copy ... $11.99
One of the most obscure albums from jazz guitarist Billy Butler – the musician who first rose to fame in the gritty R&B work of organist Bill Doggett, then went onto cut some great funky albums for Prestige Records at the end of the 60s! This set is a lot more unusual than any of those records, though – as it features music from legendary soundtrack composer Galt MacDermot, who also produced the session for his own tiny label! Billy's style here is a bit different than some of his jazz work – more of a focus on chromes and tones, with some wah wah moments that are especially nice – guitar lines that snake around these laidback grooves from a sweet small combo that features drums by Bernard Purdie, bass by Wilbur Bascomb, and piano by Galt himself! Things get nice and spacey at all the best moments – and tracks include "Hush", "Life Wins", "400 Girls Ago", and "Other Side of the Sky". CD

Matt CabShunkashito ... CD
Warner (Japan), 2016. Used ... $5.99
Cool, catchy soul from Matt Cab – a soul singer with American roots, but one who's been making much bigger waves recording albums like this for the Japanese scene – where he seems to be creating quite an audience for his music! Matt's got a style that could be huge if he were given bigger chart placement over here – instantly appealing, with a quality that's heartfelt, but never overdone – and a mode that's never trying too hard to be anything other than a kind of hummable, memorable soul with nice crossover potential – especially on the album's midtempo tracks, which might be the most appealing. The album features guest work from Sway, Maco, and Che'Nelle – and titles include "Take My Hand", "Sweet Simplicity", "Castle In The Sky", "Used To Know", "Come Back", "To You", "Call Your Name", and "That Touch".

A very cool set from the days when porn stars got to make records – in this case, the lovely Xaviera Hollander, who states her mission with the title! Most music is by the group Cochrane – led by composer Tom Cochrane on vocals and guitar – with lots of nice bass, percussion, and keyboards! Titles include "Party Sequence", "Sky Flying"< "Alfie's Theme", and "Gabrielle". LP, Vinyl record album
