Big BlackLion Walk ... LP
Uni, 1968. Very Good+ ... $19.99
One of the wildest albums by the funky conga player. The title track, "Lion Walk" runs through all of side one, and has a weird, tripped-out sloppy funk feel, with guitar and sax solos over Big Black's moody congas. Side two has three long songs, with a groove that's not as good, but still pretty dark and moody: "Tell Me, Do Your Conscience Bother You", "Love, Sweet Like Sugar Cane" and "Come On Down To The Beach".

Big BlackMessage To Our Ancestors ... LP
Uni, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
One of Big Black's better LPs for UNI, and one that features stripped down conga groove with spare flute playing by Black "Melody" Harold. Side one is a long 3 part track, divided into "Problem", "Cause", and "Cure". Side two's got three long tracks: "Speak to Me", "Snake Charmer", and "Bits & Pieces". LP, Vinyl record album

Bill CosbyBill Cosby Talks To Kids About Drugs ... LP
Uni, 1971. Very Good+ ... $39.99
A great relic – not only of the time, when drugs were exploding on the public consciousness, but also of Cosby's career – when he was making the shift from hip African-American comic into his 70s kid-centric mode! The set – as you'd guess from the title – has Bill talking to kids about drugs – but in a funny, very knowledgeable way that almost makes drugs seem like a good thing at times! Added to the whole party effect is some great use of music – including some nice funky and jazzy bits that are really great – and which have a similar feel to some of the other music heard on Bill's albums on Uni. Great stuff all around – with titles that include "Dope Pusher Song", "Captain Junkie Song", "Bill Talks About Pushers & Other Bad Things", "Order In The Classroom", and "Introduction & Downers & Uppers".

Uni, Early 70s. Sealed ... $14.99
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".

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".

✨✧ Hugh MasekelaEmancipation Of Hugh Masekela (top hat cover) ... LP
Uni, Late 60s. Good+ ... $2.99
Hugh's first album for Uni – and one that really lets him open up his groove! The record moves way past the short trumpet instrumental sound of earlier albums – into a complex groove that mixes Afro soul, LA funk, and loads of nice jazzy bits! The record's got a sound that's nicely messed up – and which shows the crossroads of modern music that passed through Hugh during his best moments. Includes a great version of "What Is Wrong With Groovin?" (different than the Letta Mbulu version!), plus "Sqo", "Child Of Earth", "Ha Lese Le Di Khanna", "Chisa", and "Why Are You Blowing My Mind?". Great stuff! LP, Vinyl record album

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".

✨✧ Desmond Dekker & The AcesIsraelites ... LP
Uni, 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A landmark album from Desmond Dekker – and a seminal slide of Jamaican music that really broke big on the global scene in the years before reggae! The set's a bit ska, a bit rocksteady, and completely sold all the way through – thanks to near-perfect production from Leslie Kong, who has a way of letting the basslines bubble in a pre-dub way – while Desmond's high-reaching vocals really take off over the top! The blend of sounds is completely wonderful – with a richness that makes the whole album as fantastic as the classic title track – and which has us wondering why Dekker never hit these heights again. Titles include "Israelites", "For Once In My Live", "Tips Of My Fingers", "Intensified", "It Is Not Easy", "Too Much Too Soon", "Rude Boy Train", and "Nincompoop". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Neil DiamondVelvet Gloves & Spit (original pressing) ... LP
Uni, 1968. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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", "Merry-Go-Round" and more.

✨✧ Love UnlimitedFrom A Girl's Point Of View ... LP
Uni, 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Second pressing of the classic first album by Love Unlimited, with a cover that makes things a bit clearer than the original one. As we're sure you know, Barry White produced this little gem, 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. Even if you're a fan of Barry's voice, you can't beat the girls' heavenly harmonies, especially 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!

Bill Cosby recalls the days of his youth in a set of classic routines that include "My Brother Russell", "Dogs", "Frogs", "My Father", "My Boy Scout Troup", and "Buck Jones" – all delivered with Fat Albert-era charm! Despite Albert's appearance on the cover, there's none of the music from the soundtrack on the LP – but Cosby's lively performance more than makes up for that fact! LP, Vinyl record album

Sussex, 1972. Very Good+ ... $48.99
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!

Toshiko Akiyoshi-Lew Tabackin Big BandRoad Time ... LP
RCA, 1976. Very Good 2LP ... $2.99
A great little live set from the glory days of the Toshiko Akiyoshi/Lew Tabackin Big Band – a series of performances from Japan, recorded in 1976, all featuring the ensemble at its best! The double-length nature of the record takes the group even farther than usual – really letting them stretch out with the kind of bold tones and broad colors that made the group so great. Soloists include Bobby Shew on trumpet, Jimmy Knepper on trombone, and Gary Foster on alto sax – alongside leaders Lew Tabackin on tenor and flute, and Toshiko Akioshi on piano. Titles include a nicely dancing reading of the classic "Warning: Success May Be Hazardous To Your Health" – plus "Kogun", "Henpecked Old Man", "Tuning Up", "Since Perry/Yet Another Tear", and "Soliloquy".

Mose Allison TrioBack Country Suite ... LP
Prestige, 1957. Very Good ... $13.99
A rare early Mose Allison album – a mostly-instrumental outing that focuses on Allison's wonderful talents on the piano – already honed by this time through participation in a number of key sessions with other leaders! Side one of the album features the beautiful "Back Country Suite" – an extended piece of shorter numbers, composed by Allison with a wonderfully evocative feel. The depth of the work is wonderful, and shows that even at an early point, Allison was forging a unique voice in jazz that went far beyond simple work on piano as an accompanist. Other players on the set include bassist Taylor La Fargue and drummer Frank Isola – and side two features the tunes "Blueberry Hill", "I Thought About You", "In Salah", and "One Room Country Shack".

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".

✨✧ Albert AylerSpirits Rejoice ... LP
ESP/Get Back (Italy), 1965. Very Good+ (reissue)... $19.99
A seminal Albert Ayler session from the 60s – recorded at the legendary Judson Hall with an incredible sound! There's a bold, righteous feel to this record that possibly even tops other Ayler classics for ESP – and the spacious setting makes the notes echo, rebound, and come back together with searing intensity throughout. The group features Ayler on tenor, brother Don on trumpet, Charles Tyler on alto, Sunny Murray on drums, and both Henry Grimes and Gary Peacock on basses – using a unique two-bass approach that only further emphasizes the unique qualities of the record. Call Cobbs plays a bit of harpsichord too – and tracks include "Sprits Rejoice", "Holy Family", "Angels", and "Prophet". LP, Vinyl record album

Albert AylerSwing Low Sweet Spiritual ... LP
Osmosis (Netherlands), 1964. Near Mint- ... $39.99
Pre-ESP Records work from the legendary Albert Ayler – and a really special set that definitely shows his strong ties to a previous legacy of African-American music! Ayler always clamed blues and other roots in his sound, but didn't always show them as clearly – given his free-thinking, forward-moving approach – yet this set has Albert really reworking an older influence, by taking older songs from gospel and secular sources, and using them as a completely compelling springboard for his new ideas on tenor and soprano sax! The album's the sort that David Murray might have cut in the mid 80s – but conceived by Ayler two decades before – and sadly unissued for years after its recording, possibly because it's a very sensitive, soulful set that's different than the frenetic power of later albums on ESP. A real treasure throughout – with work from Call Cobbs Jr on piano, Henry Grimes on bass, and Sonny Murray on drums – on titles that include "Swing Low Sweet Chariot", "Deep River", "Goin Home", "Ol Man River", "Down By The Riverside", and "Nobody Knows The Trouble I've Seen".

Bobby BareSingin In The Kitchen ... LP
RCA, 1974. Very Good ... $1.99
What a warm, wonderful record from the Bobby Bare family and Shel Silverstein – the long buried, deeply underappreciated Singing In The Kichen album from 1974! Though originally released as a children's LP, this one works for our adult ears just as well as the far more celebrated Lullabies, Legends & Lies from the previous year. It's got a loose, ragged charm that's endearing as can be – with the wife and kids singing backup and duets with Bare's laconic drawl of a lead – and the songs highlight the most folksy and family geared wit of family friend Shel Silverstein! Bobby Bare will always be one of our favorite personalities of the 60s & 70s country heyday – and this LP only adds to our fondness! Includes "Singin' In The Kitchen", "The Monkey And The Elephant", "Lovin' You Anyway", "You Are", "The Unicorn", "Scarlet Ribbons", and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Bill BarronHot Line – The Tenors Of Bill Barron/Booker Ervin (Savoy Jazz – with bonus track) ... LP
Savoy, 1962. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A stunner from Bill Barron! The set's one of the few rare sides that Barron cut as a leader during the early 60s – and it ranks right up there with work by Ornette Coleman or Joe Harriott for sheer raw modern power! The group's a quintet – with Barron and Booker Ervin on tenor, Larry Ridley on bass, Kenny Barron on piano, and Andrew Cyrille on drums – and the warm interplay between Ridley's bass and Barron's piano provides a striking contrast to the sharp-edged horn of Barron and the adventurous drumming of Cyrille. Tracks chop around in a modal groove, but still also retain a bit of soul jazz flair – and like all of Barron's best work, they never forget how to swing, and swing they do! Titles include "Bill's Boogie", "Groovin", "A Cool One", "Playhouse March", and "Work Song". 80's pressing, with previously unissued track "Billie's Bounce". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bill BarronNebulae (aka Tenor Stylings) ... LP
Savoy, 1961. Near Mint- ... $9.99
Groundbreaking work from the modernist jazz team of Bill Barron and Ted Curson! The album's one of a few rare gems that Barron cut for the Savoy label early in his career – a mixture of Mingus-like angular jazz compositions, outfitted with a freer sense of soloing, and a deeply soulful phrasing overall. Barron and Curson are electric together, swapping lines and solos with amazing deftness – driving on tightly with rhythms by Kenny Barron, Jimmy Garrison, and Frankie Dunlop. Titles include "Blast Off", "Ode To An Earth Girl", "Fox Hunt", and "Oriental Impressions". This is an 80s repackaging of the album Tenor Stylings – and it features the previously unissued tune "Desolation", also from the same sessions! LP, Vinyl record album

John BarryIpcress File ... LP
Decca, 1965. Very Good+ ... $19.99
One of the greatest soundtracks ever from the great John Barry – a set of tracks that echoes some of his famous modes from James Bond films, yet also has a unique quality all its own! Barry's got a strongly jazzy sensibility here – and spaces out some great instrumentation with the same sensibilities used in the equally great music for The Knack! Staff aren't listed, but there's clearly some great Brit jazz players in the lineup – given the record's key use of vibes and tenor solos – as well as this very cool slow-plucked guitar with a noisy, echoey quality. The sound is brilliant – everything you'd hope for in the best 60s soundtracks – and titles include "The Ipcress File", "Alone In Three Quarter Time", "A Man Alone", "If You're Not Clean I'll Kill You", "Goodbye Harry", and "Alone Blues".

The soundtrack that put John Barry over the top – and to many, THE James Bond soundtrack! The album chills from the first notes of the haunting title theme – the majestic "Goldfinger", sung by Shirley Bassey with a tone that's as dangerous as a razor-sharp hat spinning through the air! 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

The theme song features vocals by Tom Jones – and the rest of the tunes almost reads as a who's who of hipster influences, as so many of them have been taken up by other artists as band or album names.

Columbia, 1973. Very Good- ... $24.99
An overlooked gem from the 70s – the one and only album from Batteaux, a group who do a great job of mixing older folksy soul modes with some tighter 70s production! David and Robin Beatteau are the core of the group – and work in this sing-song blend of vocals and acoustic guitar that's not too far from Alzo & Udine – with a similar blend of folk funk and mellow soul elements – but all wrapped up in a sound that's quite unique! The production is impeccable – tight enough to isolate all the best elements at hand – yet subtly wrapping everything up in a sound that's nice and warm, while still sounding very organic. The set includes the wonderful tune "Tell Her She's Lovely" – a mellow groover – plus the tracks "Mirror", "Wake Me In the Morning", "Lady of The Lake", "Katy", "High Tide", and the cut "Dig Up The Love".

✨✧ Beach BoysStack O Tracks ... LP
Capitol, 1968. Very Good Gatefold ... $24.99
Beach Boys karaoke – or kind of a "music minus one" album – but whatever the case, the set's a pretty unique outing in the field of 60s pop! The record's exactly what the title promises – a "stack o tracks" from the group's earlier records – rhythm parts, some instrumental bits – all laid out with key guitar parts missing and no vocals at all – so that you can pick up your instrument and play along with the record – and maybe get your friends to harmonize too! At the time, the approach seemed somewhat crazy – but after spending decades tracking down Smile-era bootlegs of Brian Wilson studio tracks just like this, the record's got a surprising sort of brilliance – almost as if Brian had guessed there's be a market for his "studio progress" sort of material. Titles include "Darlin", "Salt Lake City", "Wild Honey", "Catch A Wave", "Wouldn't It Be Nice", "Surfer Girl", "God Only Knows", "Little Honda", and "Let Him Run Wild". LP, Vinyl record album

Big BoysWhere's My Towel/Industry Standard (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Modern Classics, Early 80s. Sealed Gatefold (reissue)... $14.99
The oddball early 80s debut of The Big Boys – a slice of weirdness from the Austin, TX underground that paved the way for stylistically sprawling 80s punk and hardcore to come! One thing that sets The Big Boys apart is the bass sound, which is way up there in the mix. As paired with shredded-chord vocals and the brute force of the guitar and drums, the group had a really unique, nearly unprecedented sound. Oddball songs mixed with irascible punk attitude! This great reissue from Light In The Attic's Modern Classic imprint gives it the proper respect – with heavy vinyl, packaging and insert. Includes "Security", "TV", "I Don't Wanna Dance", "Identity Crisis", "Thin Line", "Advice", "Complete Control", "Work Without Pay", "Spit", "Act/Reaction", "Self-Contortion" and "Wise Up". LP, Vinyl record album
