Big BlackElements Of Now! ... LP
Uni, 1968. Very Good ... $16.99
Probably his best album, with messed up funky arrangements that highlight his conga playing, and which are punctuated by hard sax solos and nice electric bass playing. A good off-kilter funk LP, with a pretty unique sound. Cuts include "Low Gravy", "Lady Mack", "Burundi Pose", and "Come On And Get It Baby". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a partially split top seam.)

Neil DiamondVelvet Gloves & Spit (second pressing) ... LP
Uni, 1968. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Neil Diamond's first official LP for the Uni label – originally released in 1968 – a great record that was initially way underappreciated! This is a solid portrait of Neil that's too often overlooked – with his heart-on-sleeve lyrical sensibility and anthemic songcraft on full display long before the glittery, superstar trappings of his 70s ouvre! His vocals and catchy tunefulness are as extroverted as ever, in a post Brill Building groove that's B-I-G, loads of fun, and not nearly as hamfisted as later stuff! Includes "Two-Bit Manchild", "Pot Smokers Song" (OK, this one is pure honeyglazed ham – but it's the good tasty kind), "Brooklyn Roads", "Sunday Sun", "Practically Newborn", "Knackelflerg", "Shilo", "Merry-Go-Round" and more. LP, Vinyl record album
(Later pressing on MCA.)

✨✧ Garland GreenJealous Kind Of Fella ... LP
Uni, 1968. Good ... $16.99
A classic! This is one of the best soul albums ever to come out of Chicago, and it's a really great blend of the Jerry Butler "iceman" style (very big in Chi-town) and the deeper soul sound of the west side. With the great title cut, and lots more goodies like "Don't Think That I'm a Violent Guy", "You Played on a Player", and "Love Now, Pay Later". LP, Vinyl record album

Quincy Jones/The Mirettes/Nate TurnerLost Man – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Uni, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Wild Quincy Jones score for this lost film starring Sidney Poitier. There's a wide mix of material on here – with some soul tracks by The Mirettes and Ernestine Anderson, some bluesy stuff by Nate Turner, and a few groovy instrumentals by Quincy, including "Slum Creeper" and "Up Against the Wall". Also includes the tasty instrumental groover "Main Squeeze"! LP, Vinyl record album

Lucifer (Mort Garson)Black Mass ... LP
Uni, 1971. Very Good+ ... $24.99
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".

Strawberry Alarm ClockIncense & Peppermints ... LP
Uni, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $24.99
Dreamy dreamy pop psych from Strawberry Alarm Clock – a great late 60s group who skirted the worlds of Sunshine Pop and more jamming garage rock! This album's got a lot more to offer than you might guess from just the title hit – as the instrumentation sometimes gets nicely tripped out – with cool use of organ, harpsichord, and guitar – plus plenty of special effects in production – and even some of the song styles and lengths are unusual too, making the album way more than just a batch of cute little tunes. Titles include the classic "Incense & Peppermints", the 8 minute jammer "The World's On Fire", the instrumental "Pass Time With SAC", and the cuts "Paxton's Back Street Carnival", "Rainy Day Mushroom Pillow", "Strawberries Mean Love", and "Unwind the Clock".

✨✧ Vigrass & OsborneQueues ... LP
Uni, 1972. Very Good Trifold ... $6.99
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, 1989. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An incredible compilation of late 80s rap put together by the one-and-only Jazzy Jay – filled with hard-to-find tracks, some of which were issued as 12"s on the Strong City label! Dope middle school beats from Tony D, Diamond D (his debut?), DJ Shabazz, Congo Square Productions, and others keep this set nice all the way through! A dozen tracks in all, including "Do What You Gotta Do" by Jazzy Jay, "Condition Red" and "Yo Stupid" by Nu-Sounds, "I'm Not Playing" by Ultimate Force (worth the price alone), "Back To The Lab" by Tony D, "Keep Hushin" by Ice Cream Tee, "Grand Wizard Theodore" by Grandwizard & The Freaks, "So Def Am I" by D Ice, "I'm The King" by Raheem, "Def Is The Status" by MobVersa, "The Joke Is Over" by Outlaw Gangster and "You Gotta Believe" by Def Duo.

Uni, 1972. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Great stuff – the beginning of the Love Unlimited dynasty! As we're sure you know, Barry White produced this little gem of a record, and the record was a key proving ground for many of his stone cold soul production ideas before he went off and started doing the lead vocals himself. The trio of lovelies that makes up Love Unlimited do a perfect job with Barry's arrangements – singing heavenly harmonies on tracks like "If This World Were Mine", "Is It Really True Boy – Is It Really Me", and the stunning "Walking In The Rain With The One I Love", which has one of the best telephone monologues you'll ever hear on a soul track!

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 ... $6.99
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".

Art BlakeyNight In Tunisia (Blue Note) ... LP
Blue Note, 1961. Very Good- ... $64.99
One of a number of Art Blakey albums titled after "Night In Tunisia" – and most likely the best! The tune is a perfect fit for the Blakey Jazz Messengers format – long, rhythmic, really stretching out, yet allowing plenty of space for the horn players to solo. Players include Bobby Timmons on piano, Lee Morgan on trumpet, and Wayne Shorter on tenor – a killer lineup that's in really classic form here – driven on nicely by Blakey's drums and bass work by Jymie Merritt. Titles include "Night In Tunisia", with Blakey thundering through impeccably – plus the tracks "Yama", "Kozo's Waltz", and a version of Timmons' great "So Tired". LP, Vinyl record album

John AddisonTom Jones ... LP
United Artists, 1963. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A period score, but one with plenty of groovy touches – a masterpiece of 60s film scoring from the great John Addison! Addison's music for the famous Tony Richardson version of Tom Jones is every bit as playful as the images on the screen – with only marginal aesthetics of the period of the story, and instead lots of romping melodies, carried out on horn parts, percussive passages, and even some cool harpsichord bits. Most of the tunes move quite quickly – as does the action on screen – and titles include "Sylvan Misadventures", "Ladies Are Irresistible", "Love Theme From Tom Jones", "Wine & Women", "If He Swing By The String", and "The Squire Steps In".

Afro Blues Quintet Plus OneDiscovery 3 ... LP
Mira, Late 60s. Very Good ... $29.99
Groovy groovy Latin soul jazz instrumentals, very much in the vein of Cal Tjader's work for the Skye label, and with a similar vibes-oriented feel! This is the sort of stuff that we used to pass by because we didn't think it was "authentic" enough. Now, though, we really dig it for its groovy mix of styles, and it's unique approach to both Latin and jazz! Great all the way through, and titles include "Star Eyes", "Viva Cepeda", 'Discovery Three", and "Spartacus". LP, Vinyl record album

Afro Latin Vintage OrchestraLast Odyssey ... LP
Ubiquity, 2012. Near Mint- 2LP ... $16.99
A great step forward for the Afro Latin Vintage Orchestra – even better than their previous album, and a set that beautifully mixes together jazz, Latin, and African elements into one seamless groove! Percussionist Masta Conga is at the head of the group – leading the ensemble with a unique vision that's less of the overdone Afro Funk you might know from other contemporary combos – and more of a classic 60s blend of elements – especially that unique hybrid of Latin modes you'd get from west coast groups – like the Afro Latin Soultet or Afro Blues Quintet – both clear choices of inspiration, given this group's name! Yet there's also some 70s elements moving through the grooves too – thanks to great Fender Rhodes lines, and bits of other keyboards too – often used in these cool spare ways that work perfectly with the mix of funk and Latin in the rhythms, and occasional bits of strings as well. Most tracks are instrumental, although there are a bit of vocals on the set – and titles include "Requiem Pour Un Grooveur", "Petrof Sublimination", "Onze De France", "Gibbon's Dub", and "Dimension 7".

✨✧ Lorez AlexandriaFor Swingers Only ... LP
Argo, 1963. Very Good ... $39.99
One of the greatest albums ever from Lorez Alexandria – an ultra-hip singer who recorded for Impulse and King, but who sounds especially wonderful on this rare date for Chess Records! The album's got a groove that definitely lives up to its title – a jazzy, bouncy sort of rhythm that's definitely "for swingers only", and which is a nice contrast to overdone torch or standard jazz vocal modes. Alexandria's singing is completely sublime – quite fluid, yet with a soulful depth that's really amazing – and her backing combo is equally hip – a group led by John Young on piano, and also featuring George Eskirdge on guitar, Jimmy Garrison on bass, Phil Thomas on drums, and Ronald Wilson on flute and tenor – an obscure player whose reed work really makes the album sparkle! The song choices are great too – a mix of some under-recorded gems and a few blue-toned classics – all redone amazingly by Lorez with a sound that's quite unique. Titles include her classic Argo reading of "Baltimore Oriole", which begins with an amazing drum/bass passage that's worth the price of the album alone – and other tracks include "The End Of A Love Affair", "Baltimore Oriole", "All Or Nothing At All", "Mother Earth", "Love Look Away", and "Traveling Down A Lonely Road".

Fantastic 70s material by this unique Brazilian combo! The sound is perhaps a bit less funky than some of their other records, but the songwriting is excellent, and the production is top notch – in a way that opens up the voices and gives the record a lot more soul than usual. Filled with beautiful tracks of subtle beauty – and titles that include "Dona Flor E Seus Dois Maridos", "Sexto Sentido", "Chuculatera", "Toro De Lagrimas", "Maldita Hora", and "Diacho De Dor", with a guest appearance by Maria Crueza.

Art Ensemble Of ChicagoBap-Tizum ... LP
Atlantic, 1973. Very Good+ ... $24.99
A seminal moment for the Art Ensemble Of Chicago – one of their first albums for a widely-distributed label, and an exceptionally strong live performance that really gets to the core of the group's unique approach! The material was recorded at the Ann Arbor Festival in 1972 – and has the Ensemble playing with a sense of focus and power that's even stronger than their previous indie and European records – really hitting their stride before a large live audience who totally gets their groove, and really eggs them on with enthusiastic support! As usual, the range of instrumentation is great – lots of different reeds, percussion, and brass – handled by the legendary lineup of Lester Bowie, Roscoe Mitchell, Joseph Jarman, Malachi Favors, and Don Moye. Titles include "Oouffnoon", "Ohnedaruth", "Unanka", "Immm", and "Odwalla". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Roy AyersLive At The Montreux Jazz Festival ... LP
Polydor (Japan), 1972. Near Mint- ... $49.99
A beautiful live set from 1972 – and a very unique album from Roy Ayers' Polydor years! The album originally was never issued in the US – clearly done for a hipper European market at the time – and it's got more of a jazz vibe than some of Roy's other work on Polydor, with sounds that echo back to his earlier years on Atlantic! Yet despite the jazz setting, there's still a nice dose of funk in the mix too – a bit like the vibe that Ayers hit on his Virgo Red album, but leaner too – given that the group's only a quartet. The smaller lineup really allows Roy a lot of space to solo strongly on vibes – and he's also joined by the great Harry Whitaker on electric piano, always a treat in a setting like this. The album features an extended early version of "Move To Groove", plus "In A Silent Way", "Your Cup Of Tea", and "Daddy Bug". LP, Vinyl record album
(Japanese reissue pressing from the mid 90s – but long out of print, and even hard to find then!)

Roy AyersTear To A Smile ... LP
Polydor, 1975. Very Good ... $11.99
One of the best early soul albums by Roy Ayers! Roy's working here with Dee Dee Bridgewater, Edwin Birdsong, William Allen, Harry Whitaker, and other hip players – a perfect crew to forge Roy's unique blend of jazz and soul. This is perhaps the first record to really have Roy stretching out in this mode – moving more fully away from funky jazz, into a ream of vocal tracks that would make him one of the most unique artists of the 70s. This mid 70s period of Roy's career was remarkably fertile, creatively as well as for sheer productivity – and Tears To A Smile is one of them that shows some the most artistic growth, and also a deeper sense of soul! Features righteous cuts like "2000 Black", "Ebony Blaze", "Time & Space", and "A Tear To A Smile" – plus the mellow "Magic Lady", and a great remake of Earth Wind & Fire's "That's The Way Of The World".

Fantastic! This is a rare original Shandar pressing of this classic late Ayler recording – a record that's probably better known to people as one of the "Nuits De La Fondation Maeght" concerts issued under one title or another. The set's a stellar live performance, and one of his few hard jazz recordings from this time. Ayler's on tenor and soprano, and he's playing with Call Cobbs on piano and Mary Maria on soprano sax. Tracks include "Truth Is Marching On", "Spiritual Reunion", and "Universal Message". LP, Vinyl record album

Albert AylerLast Album ... LP
Impulse, 1969. Very Good Gatefold ... $29.99
Ayler's last album ever – and an incredibly strange batch of tracks that shows perfectly the kind of stylistic and emotional struggle he was going through in the final years of his life. Like the albums New Grass and Love Cry, this one shows Ayler toying with influences from other genres – like rock and soul – in order to better communicate his message to the masses. And while there's some strange odd moments that don't really work, there's others that have a gutsiness that's stunning – especially from the otherwise serious (by this point) NY underground. Players include Bobby Few, Muhammad Ali, and Stafford James – and tracks include "Untitled Duet", "Again Comes The Rising Of The Sun", "Toiling", "Birth Of Mirth", and "Desert Blood".

Classic early material by Albert Ayler, recorded in New York in 1964, but originally issued only in Europe! The session features Ayler with the obscure trumpeter Norman Howard, plus Henry Grimes on bass and Sonny Murray on drums – and has all the crackle and imagination of Ayler's ESP recordings. In fact, the album stands as a key record that's as essential as Spiritual Unity or Spirits Rejoice – and has a very similar feel to both of those sets. Titles include "Spirits", "Witches & Devils", "Holy, Holy", and "Saints". LP, Vinyl record album

Philips, 1962. Near Mint- ... $24.99
Pretty groovy tracks recorded by this enigmatic jazz guitarist in France during the early 60s. The format is trio throughout – with 2 different rhythm groups: Kenny Clarke & Pierre Michelot, and Daniel Humair & Michel Gaudry. The tracks are short and tight – with hints of Django, but also some other unique influences that give the guitar work a strangely jangly sound. Titles include "Opus De Funk", "Take Five", "On Green Dolphin Street", "Milestones", and "Nuages". LP, Vinyl record album
(Deep groove pressing! Back cover has some light aging, but front is great!)
