Bill Cosby (aka Badfoot Brown)Bill Cosby Presents Badfoot Brown & The Bunions Bradford Funeral & Marching Band ... LP
Uni, 1971. Very Good Gatefold ... $24.99
A funky masterpiece from Bill Cosby – hardly the sort of record you might expect from all of his years on mainstream TV! This set was cut back when Bill was a much hipper cat on the LA scene – and it was the start of a brief all-instrumental run with his Badfoot Brown ensemble – a group who's not named in the notes on the record, but who offer up some seriously funky grooves! Bill supposedly plays keyboards himself – some really mad electric piano that's often repetitive, cyclical, and really hypnotic – a tripped-out style that's more funk than jazz, and which is easily one of the best parts of the record. But the rhythms are great too – equally hypnotic, and build up from bass, organ, guitar, and this whomping sort of drum part – echoing strongly in the background and really bringing a spooky feel to the set. Side one includes the amazing "Martin's Funeral" – sampled famously by Tribe Called Quest, and a 15 minute jam that's inspired by the funeral of Martin Luther King. Side two features "Hybish Shybish", an even longer track that's sort of an improvised jazz game – and which features tripped-out instrumental trading that's simply amazing. The whole record is really mindblowing – a messed-up jam session that's well worth the legend that's been built up around it over the years – and we're hard-pressed to think of another album like it! And as a special bonus, the package features these really long notes written by Bill Cosby himself – words that are as unusual as the music, and a side of him that's hardly been shown again.

FoundationsBuild Me Up Buttercup ... LP
Uni, 1968. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A hastily assembled album designed to cash in on the success of The Foundations' huge hit "Build Me Up Buttercup" – and one that features one side of studio material, and one side of live material. The set's got a few originals – such as "Build Me Up Buttercup", "Any Old Time", and "Back On My Feet Again" – plus soul covers like "Harlem Shuffle", "Am I Groovin You", and "Comin Home Baby", all done in the group's slightly beach-ish style.

Johannesburg Street BandDancin Through The Streets ... LP
Chisa/Uni, Late 60s. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
One of the greatest things to ever come out of Hugh Masekela's association with Uni Records – an album of instrumental tunes that recalls the older sound of the South African scene, yet which also has more of that modern and slightly funky groove that Hugh was bringing to his own work in the 60s! The drums here are a lot heavier and fuller than they would be on older South African tunes – and instead of using penny whistles and more folksy instrumentation, the horn work here has a hipper LA-styled approach that's really quite nice – almost like The Crusaders teaming up with Hugh for the album's tracks. Titles include the incredibly dark groover "Thimlela", a sonic treat that's worth the price of the album alone – plus "What's The Matter Zulu", "Special Branch", "No Passport", "Letter To Prospect Township", "Isangoma", and "Foyi Foyi".

Lucifer (Mort Garson)Black Mass ... LP
Uni, 1971. Sealed ... $49.99
This is one of Mort Garson's craziest moog records ever, or as the label says: "Moog Goes Supernatural with Eerie Electronics". Ostensibly a satanic sort of thing, this is actually a wild cool mix of moog and early synthesizer effects, over a bunch of original compositions with no sorts of "hokey" arrangments. Very noisy in parts, and pretty growly with cool cool sounds. Did you expect anything less from Mr. Mort? Titles include "Exorcism", "ESP", "Witch Trial", "Solomon's Ring", and "Black Mass".

Vigrass & OsborneQueues ... LP
Uni, 1972. Very Good Trifold ... $9.99
We don't know much about the duo of Paul Vigrass and Gary Osborne, but they come together here with a wonderful harmony sound – a mode that's somewhere between the A&M work of Lambert & Nuttycombe, and maybe the best America albums of the 70s – set to these great arrangements that feature lots of cool keyboards from sound library genius Alan Hawkshaw! Jeff Wayne arranged and produced the set – and his touches here clearly make him the third member of the group – as the care of presentation really makes the album way different than it might be otherwise – one of those really unique, really special little 70s records that never got its due at the time. Titles include "Men Of Learning", "Virginia", "Sail Away", "Forever Autumn", and "Don't You Worry". LP, Vinyl record album

Uni, Early 70s. Very Good ... $6.99
An obscure little soul record on UNI. Not particularly good, but it does feature some nice Chicago soul arrangements by Donny Hathaway, Tom Washington, and Riley Hampton. The set list also includes a number of originals by Donny Hathaway – written in conjunction with either Curtis Mayfield, Leroy Hutson, or Roy Ayers! These titles include "Je Vous Aime Beaucoup", "Gone Away", "You'll Never Be True", and "Our Ages Our Hearts". LP, Vinyl record album

Earth OperaEarth Opera ... LP
Elektra, 1968. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $11.99
A great debut LP by a near-forgotten act that blossomed briefly at the end of the 60s folk-rock boom – and deserve more than sidebar status in the book of modern music history! Earth Opera incorporated many styles into a sound that may not seem uncommon today, but was idiosyncrastic and unique in it's day, and still sounds great! The group was born from the collaboration of Peter Rowan and a young David Grisman, who recruited the rest of the members from the Boston Be-In and built an east coast take on the sounds that were sweeping California in the mid and late 60s. There's some nice jazzy influence creeping in to the bands singer/songwriter-plus vibe, with 10 songs in all, including "The Red Sox Are Winning", "As It Is Before", "Dreamless", "To Care At All", "Home OF The Brave", "The child Bride", "Close Your Eyes & Shut The Door", "Time & Again", "When You Were Full Of Wonder", and "Death By Fire".

✨✧ Cal Tjader & Eddie PalmieriEl Sonido Nuevo ... LP
Verve, 1966. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A classic collaboration between vibist Cal Tjader and Latin pianist Eddie Palmieri – a really wonderful album that bridges two different worlds of music in the 60s! Cal had always had something of a Latin bent to his music, even working for Fantasy in San Francisco a decade before – but here, teamed up with Eddie Palmieri, his music gets a great New York infusion – and one that's even a bit more contemporary than some of Tjader's previous 60s Latin efforts. Eddie's sharp-edged piano is totally great – ringing out with some especially bold tones – and other players on the set include Julian Priester and Mark Weinstein on trombones, Ismael Quintana on percussion, Bobby Rodriguez on bass, and George Castro on flute. Arrangements are by Eddie and Claus Ogerman – and titles include "Los Jibaros", "Ritmo Uni", "Picadillo", "Unidos", "El Sonido Nuevo", and "Guajira En Azul". LP, Vinyl record album

Sussex, 1972. Used ... Out Of Stock
A great album of funky grooves put together by Bill Cosby, and featuring some of his funky friends from LA, like Stu Gardner, Gildo Mahones, Mel Brown, Willie Bobo, Monk Montgomery, and Paul Humphrey! The set's not to be confused with the similarly titled album on Uni – but is equally great – and it features 3 looooong funky tracks – "Abuse", "The Blues", and "Bunions" – all with a lot of silliness, plus two shorter ones, including "I Love You Camille", written for his wife to stop her getting mad at all of his philandering!

One of the groovier examples of late 60s psychedelia on the MGM label – one of a pair from the Boston area's Beacon Street Union! The Clown Died In Marvin Gardens has more orchestrated arrangements than the group's other album from the period, but it's no less adventurous, strange or diversely influenced! Titles include the title track, plus "The Clown's Overture", "Angus Of Aberdeen", "A Not Very August Afternoon", "Now I Taste The Tears" and groovy covers of "Blue Suede Shoes" and "Baby Please Don't Go".

Junie C Cobb & His New Hometown BandChicago – The Living Legends ... LP
Riverside, 1961. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A trad-revival set recorded on Chicago's south side in the early 60s – part of an excellent series on Riverside, seeking to re-discover some older jazz and blues greats who were languishing in the Windy City at the time! Junie C Cobb plays mostly piano on the date, but also sings on one number too – in a style that's got plenty of bluesy undercurrents, particularly on the numbers that feature vocals by Annabelle Calhoun. Other group members include Leon Washington on tenor, Fortunatus Fip Ricard on trumpet, and Harlen Bobby Floyd on trombone – and titles include "Be Mine", "Just Because Of You", "Swing Your Hurdy Gurdy", "Once Or Twice", and "Belligerent Blues".

Five AmericansWestern Union ... LP
Abnak, 1967. Very Good ... $11.99
Genius jangle pop from the 60s – great harmonies, tight guitars, and a sound that's familiar but always fresh – the kind of record that should have rivaled bigger hits by The Monkees or Strawberry Alarm Clock! The Five Americans were an incredibly tight group even for their time – a combo who'd learned lessons from The Beach Boys, but kept the rougher energy of their Texas scene – in a way that mixed sweetness with edges, and managed to do a tremendous amount with very little instrumentation or larger arrangements. Titles include the sublime hit "Western Union" – which is followed by a really fresh-voiced batch of tracks that include "Husbands & Wives", "Big Cities", "Sound Of Love", "Tell Ann I Love Her", and "Sympathy".

✨✧ VariousSoul On The Real Side – LP #1 ... LP
Outta Sight (UK), 2015. Used ... Out Of Stock
Contemporary cuts mixed with rare soul nuggets – all in a blend that goes way beyond the usual soul compilation! The Real Side team have issued a number of underground tracks on their own during the past decade – but they've also got ears that are really tuned towards a unique slice of soul from the 70s – those tracks that might have a deep soul feel in the vocals, but a modern soul element in the rhythms – a blend of rough and smooth that really sparkles strongly on the older tracks on this set! This first LP in the series is a combination of tracks from all 3 CD volumes – with maybe a slightly stronger focus on recent material – and titles include "On The Real Side" by Larry Saunders, "Favour" by Jacqi Williams, "This Girl" by Cookin On 3 Burners with Kylie Auldist, "Love's Journey" by Mebus, "Keep On Pushing Love" by Al Green, "The Walk" by Jesse Gomez & TCB, "Born To Break My Heart (Carolina rmx)" by Roy G Hemmings, and "Hold On To The Blues" by Lonne Givens.

Lola AlbrightDreamsville ... LP
Columbia, Late 50s. Very Good- ... $24.99
A really unique session of vocal jazz – and one of the few ever directed by Henry Mancini! Lola was best known for her work on TV in the show Peter Gunn, but despite her cheesecake looks, she's actually a pretty nice singer – with a dusky, late nite sort of sound that's perfect for the Mancini backings on the set. The album features a fair number of original Mancini tunes – all in the moody mellow mode as the more famous "Dreamsville" title track – and Lola burns in a nice smokey tone, on tracks that include "Sorta Blue", "It's Always You", "Soft Sounds", "Slow & Easy", "We Kiss In A Shadow", "Two Sleepy People", and "Brief & Breezy".

Lorez AlexandriaDeep Roots ... LP
Argo, 1962. Good ... $14.99
One of the greatest records ever recorded by vocalist Lorez Alexandria – and a perfect summation of her rich talents as a singer! Backing is by a small Chicago trio that includes John Young on piano, Vernel Fournier on drums, and George Eskridge on bass – but the arrangements of the tracks, and Lorez's unique interpretations drive the tunes into territory that's surprisingly advanced for the 1962 date of the session. You'll recognize most of the tunes – but as the old adage goes, it's not the song, but the singer – and you'll hear Lorez crafting a rich tapestry of sound and emotion from titles like "No Moon At All", "I Was A Fool", "Detour Ahead", "Travlin Light", and "I Want To Talk About You". The album's a gem – right up there with her best work ever! LP, Vinyl record album

Art Ensemble Of ChicagoLive – Part 2 ... LP
BYG (Japan), 1969. Very Good+ ... $43.99
Rare, rare vinyl pressing of this seminal work from the Art Ensemble of Chicago – recorded during their most creative period ever! The album was recorded live in October of 1969 – at a time when the group had pulled up roots and moved to France for a few years, bursting on the European scene with unique creativity that was not getting the recognition it deserved in their hometown of Chicago. The studio sets from this time are already the stuff of legend, and have thankfully made it back on reissue heavily the past few years – and this brilliant live set stands perfectly next to them – matching any of the LPs in the Great Black Music series on BYG/Actuel for sheer creative brilliance and soulful energy! Fontella Bass joins the group for a bit of vocals on the lengthy "Bon Voyage", which is divided up into two side-long sections. LP, Vinyl record album

The title theme is a totally catchy number, sung by Shirley Bassey with all the dark energy of her best pop work – and Barry's score has some really surprising moments, including some nicely restrained tracks that are a good blend of spareness and moody instrumentation. Titles include "Bond Smells A Rat", "Bond Meets Bambi & Thumper", "Diamonds Are Forever", "Circus Circus", "007 & Counting", and "Q's Trick". LP, Vinyl record album

Barry then takes over with some wonderful instrumentals – a blend of crime jazz, mood pieces, chase themes, and more – all peppered with that dark dark Bond theme that we love so much! Titles include "Into Miami", "Teasing The Korean", "Alpine Drive", "Bond Back In Action", "Gassing The Gangsters", and "Death Of Goldfinger". LP, Vinyl record album

Apple, 1970. Very Good ... $14.99
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
(Red label Apple pressing. Cover has a cut corner and some wear.)
