Big BlackLion Walk ... LP
Uni, 1968. Very Good+ ... $24.99
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".

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 CosbyWhen I Was A Kid ... LP
Uni, Early 70s. Very Good+ ... $1.99
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

Bill Cosby (aka Badfoot Brown)Bill Cosby Presents Badfoot Brown & The Bunions Bradford Funeral & Marching Band ... LP
Uni, 1971. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $49.99
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.

Hugh MasekelaHugh Masekela Is Alive & Well At The Whisky ... LP
Uni, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
One of Hugh's most compelling records from the time – cut live at the Whiskey A Go Go, with a jazzy edge that really shows him growing a lot as a musician. The set features small combo backing by a group that features Al Abreu on sax, Hotep Cecil Barnard on piano, Henry Franklin on bass, and Chuck Carter on drums – and in addition to trumpet, Hugh also does sing a little, does a bit of scatting, and talks between some of the songs, in a tone that exposes a political side that you don't hear on his studio sets. Titles include "Son Of Ice Bag", "Senor Coraza", "Ha Lese Le Di Khanna", "Little Miss Sweetness", "Mra", and a groovy reading of "Up Up & Away". LP, Vinyl record album

Strawberry Alarm ClockIncense & Peppermints ... LP
Uni, Late 60s. Good ... Just Sold Out!
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".

Uni, 1968. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Late 60s psych from Texas – the self-titled set from Fever Tree – which finds group adapting some outside penned tunes of the day nicely into the good natured psychedelic groove. The arrangements are what make the group special, rolling from soaring pop sounds into harder edged TX school of psychedelia, and back again. Instrumentation includes the kind of core rock sound with keys, harp, flute, cello and more – and the record even sports some string & horn arrangements by David Angel and Gene Page! Titles include "Imitation Situation 1", "Where Do You Go?", "Return Of The Native", "Man Who Paints The Pictures", "The Sun Also Rises", "Unlock My Door", "Come With Me" and more.

A great little record that's waiting to be re-discovered! The album quickly tanked as the over-pressed soundtrack to an under-viewed film – but despite years in cutout bins, it's got a fresh quality that we really treasure! About half the album features cool instrumental tunes from Mike Leander – scored in that weird mix of touches that he was using in his "rock to easy" years – and these cuts are interspersed with vocal numbers by Paul Jones, sung in a dramatic style that's a bit Bowie, but with more blue eyed soul. Titles include "Free Me", "It's Overotherness Time", "I'm Alright Jackboot", "I've Been A Bad Bad Boy", and "Stephen". LP, Vinyl record album

Nice hard funky Afro soul from Hugh – cut during the time when he was really perfecting his sweet little blend of African rhythms and LA soul! The tracks are all short and hard – with funky trumpet in the lead, and some tight hard-grooving rhythms in the back. Most of this stuff feels like some of Hugh's best funky 45s – including the tracks "Lily The Fox", "Groove Me", "Mago", "Baby, Baby, Baby", "Arrastao", "Mazeze", and a few nice mellow tracks like "I Just Wasn't Made For These Times" and "Here, There, and Everywhere".

A great little album – featuring some goofy funky instrumentals, with a "flamenco" guitar sound that really sounds more like an acoustic guitar, played nice and fast, to have that "Spanish" sound to it! The record's got a pretty cool LA late 60s kind of feel to it – and although it's not really that funky, it's still got some very nice numbers! Titles include "Walk Don't Run", "Flamenco Therapy", "Flamenco Soul", "International Love Process", "Funky Concerto", and "Flamenco Funk". LP, Vinyl record album

All Natural, 2003. Near Mint- 2LP ... $7.99
A really strong debut from Iomos Marad of the Family Tree/All Natural family! Fans of J-Live, Talib Kweli, Relativity-era Common and Stakes Is High-era De La Soul should find much to love here. Like the best of other records from the All Natural and Molemen teams, the production style is timeless hip hop; it's stable, thumping soul beats and scratches that provide a firm back end for out front rhymes that actually have something to say. Features production from the should-be-huge Dug Infinite, plus nice work from All Natural's Capital D, G (riot), UNI, Memo from the Molemen and others. 16 tracks including "I Stand Alone", "I Confess", "Anotha Late Night", "Show & Prove", "Tight", "The Steele", "Deep Rooted", "Elevate", "Wildstyle", "Appetite To Ride" featuring J-Live, "Free" with Chicago soul chanteusse Tanya Reed and more.

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".

A soul jazz masterpiece – and one of the rarest albums on the Jazzland label! Tenorist Joe Alexander has a mean, raw tone on the set – clearly influenced by the early 60s soul jazz generation, but also with some nicely off-beat tones that give him a really unique feel. He's backed here by the kind of a group that couldn't go wrong – Bobby Timmons on piano, Sam Jones on bass, and Albert Heath on drums – as well as the equally-obscure John Hunt on flugelhorn. Tracks are all long and jamming – much more soulful than some of the other Jazzland sides from the time – with titles that include "I'll Close My Eyes", "Brown's Town", "Terri's Blues", and "Weird Beard".

The album's got Vince working in a variety of styles – from mellow soul to straight jazz, often augmented with unique touches – and although the record's got a bit of 80s synth on most of the cuts, it comes across with a well crafted soulfulness that gets past any of the cheap slickness that might have been intended. Titles include "Let The Children Play", "Inseparable", "I'm On My Way", "In The Bag", and "Hey Vince". LP, Vinyl record album

A fantastic early album from jazz harpist Dorothy Ashby! Ashby's a unique talent like no other – and despite the fact that she plays a rather sleepy instrument, the harp, she swings with an other-wordly quality that's simply amazing, quite exotic, and very much in the camp of players like Yusef Lateef or Les Jazz Modes, who were trying similar experiments in jazz. This session features Dorothy in a quartet with the flute of Frank Wess, the bass of Herman Wright, and the drums of Roy Haynes, whose warm lyrical touches provide the perfect melodicism for the group. Titles include "Rascallity", "Bohemia After Dark", "Taboo", "Autumn In Rome", and "It's A Minor Thing". 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".

Albert AylerSwing Low Sweet Spiritual ... LP
Osmosis (Netherlands), 1964. Very Good+ ... $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".

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

✨✧ 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 BarronNebulae (aka Tenor Stylings) ... LP
Savoy, 1961. Very Good+ ... $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

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 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!

Warner, 1975. Very Good+ ... $7.99
A 1975 reunion from the Beau Brummels – recorded after the ill-fated solo career of vocalist Ron Elliott, but done in a way that definitely shows some of the deeper themes of those later years as well! The style's a bit more polished than the group's previous Warner albums – but not in a way that's too slick – just a bit more confident and sure overall, especially about some of the country influences in the tunes. As before, there's an indefinable mix of modes going on here – a definite nod towards Nashville and Bakersfield, but not a straight cop of country either. Ron Elliott wrote most of the tunes on the set, and titles include "First In Line", "Gate Of Hearts", "Goldrush", "Today By Day", "The Lonely Side", "Singing Cowboy", and "You Tell Me Why".

Big BoysWhere's My Towel/Industry Standard (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Modern Classics, Early 80s. Sealed Gatefold (reissue)... $19.99
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
