Neil DiamondVelvet Gloves & Spit (second pressing) ... LP
Uni, 1968. Very Good+ ... $1.99
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
(Original pressing. Cover has some wear and splitting. Vinyl plays with clicks & crackles.)

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+ ... $29.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original Uni pressing, including the printed inner sleeve.)

MirettesWhirlpool ... LP
Uni, 1969. Very Good- ... $34.99
A killer heavy soul album by this under-recorded soul combo! The Mirettes were a storming girl group from the late 60s, and their sound was a lot heavier than a lot of the sweeter girl groups from earlier years. The girls have a mix of southern deep soul vocals with some more northern-oriented harmonies – and they kind of feel like a cross between the Sweet Inspirations and the Lovelites, with a bit more funk thrown into the mix. This rare album is one of the only two they ever cut – apart from a few tracks that appeared on the Lost Man soundtrack (also on Uni) – and it's also their best. The record was produced by Clarence Paul, Ernie Shelby, and Dick Cooper – who also wrote most of the songs for the group. Titles include "I Miss You Baby", "If Everybody'd Help Somebody", "Heart Full of Gladness", "Ain't You Tryin' To Cross Over", and "Sister Watch Yourself". LP, Vinyl record album
(Vinyl has some marks that clicks on "Sister Watch Yourself". Cover has some ring & edge wear and a cutout hole.)

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
(Includes the insert. Cover has light wear.)

Uni, 1968. Used ... Out Of Stock
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

Booker T & The MGsUniversal Language ... LP
Elektra, 1977. Very Good- ... $7.99
A sweet sweet set of electric 70s funk – recorded by Booker T during a brief, but well-needed reunion with the MGs! The sound here is quite different than Stax-era MGs – as Booker plays a range of keyboards, not just organ – and the grooves have these great jazz funk touches at the bottom – almost a CTI vibe at times, but packed with the tighter energy you'd expect from the group! Steve Cropper's guitar is great – super-fine, and razor-sharp – really helping cut a nice edge on the cuts – over bass from Donald Duck Dunn and drums from Willie Hall, who's the only new member of the group. In a way, the album feels like mid 70s efforts from Johnny Hammond or Jimmy Smith – sweetly soaring on a let-loose 70s vibe. Titles include the funky break track "Grab Bag", plus "Sticky Stuff", "Moto Cross", "Tie Stick", and "Space Nuts". LP, Vinyl record album

CatalystUnity ... LP
Muse, 1974. Very Good+ ... $69.99
A killer bit of funky jazz from the 70s – issued on the Muse label, but a set hat would be right at home on the Black Jazz or Strata East imprints! Eddie Green, Odean Pope, Tyrone Brown, and Sherman Ferguson form the core of this funky fusion outfit, and they play in a beautiful way that mixes choppy fusion riffs with more soulful instrumentation. Their sound is really unique, and is an incredibly clear realization of a style that a lot of other groups attempted, but always managed to muddy up. Tracks on this one include "Maze", "Athene", "Mail Order", and "Shorter Street". Nice stuff, and one that we just about never see! LP, Vinyl record album

Steve Colson & The Unity TroupTriumph ... LP
Silver Sphinx/Soul Jazz (UK), 1980. Sealed (reissue)... $16.99
A killer set from Adegoke Steve Colson – easily some of the most spiritual music he ever recorded, and a standout gem in the second wave of Chicago's AACM! Colson's the pianist in the group, leading an ensemble in sounds that stretch from the open spirituality of the Strata East scene from earlier in the 70s, to some of the more free-thinking moments put forth by the AACM – particularly in the way the melody interacts with the rhythms. In addition to Steve's piano and flute, the set features key vocals from Iqua Colson, plus flute and tenor from Wallace McMillian, sopranino sax and bass clarinet from Douglas Ewart, more reeds from Joseph Jarman, bass from Reggie Willis, and percussion from Dushun Mosley. Overall, tracks have kind of a free, loft jazz sort of approach, but the album kicks off with one really great groover – the jazzy scatting track "Lateen", which features great vocals by Iqua, and kind of a modal dancing approach that's really great! Other titles include "For Paul", "Temple At Dendera", "Triumph Of The Outcasts, Coming", and "Unknown". LP, Vinyl record album

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".

✨✧ VariousRoots Of Rock N Roll ... LP
Savoy, 1950s. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
2LP set that brings together early R&B sides recorded for the Savoy label – not really rock and roll as the title might imply, but a good set of cuts that's sort of an overview of the label's classic hits in the pre-soul universe! Includes the sublime "Bad Boy" by The Jive Bombers, plus "Misery", "Lost In A Dream", and "Head Hunter" by Johnny Otis; "Hot Rod" and "Cornbread" by Hal Singer; "Marie", "Count Every Star", and "Old Man River" by The Ravens; "Candy" and "Mean To Me" by Big Maybelle, and "The Hucklebuck" by Paul Williams. Lots more obscure stuff, too – and a good set of notes! LP, Vinyl record album

Afro Latin Vintage OrchestraLast Odyssey ... LP
Ubiquity, 2012. Near Mint- 2LP ... $13.99
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".

✨✧ AirtoVirgin Land ... LP
Salvation, 1974. Near Mint- ... $11.99
A great little fusion set from Airto – recorded in a mode that's a great bridge between his acoustic roots and some of his smoother albums in years to come! The sound has some key electric elements here – bits of bass, guitar, and keyboards – but there's still a strongly acoustic sound overall too, one that leaves plenty of room for Airto's unique jams on percussion, plus a bit of vocals from the lovely Flora Purim. Airto's got some top-shelf talents helping him out here – Billy Cobham on production, and Stanley Clarke and Milcho Leviev on arrangements – and there's a nice sense of darkness going on that even separates the album from some of Airto's other mid 70s sides on CTI. Titles include "Peasant Dance", "Musikana", "Virgin Land", and "Hot Sand". LP, Vinyl record album

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".

✨✧ Ernie AndrewsTravelin Light ... LP
GNP, Mid 50s/1975. Very Good ... $3.99
Some of the earliest work we've ever seen from LA singer Ernie Andrews – much better known for his 60s sides, but sounding great here overall! Side one of the album's from a 1958 date arranged by Gerald Wiggins and featuring Eric Dolphy on alto sax – tunes done in a slightly bluesy mode that brings out the deepest side of Andrews vocals. Side two's from a few years before – 1956 – and features some slightly tighter arrangements from Benny Carter, but still a nice jazz base overall – and as with the first date, the group is filled with top-shelf players from the LA scene. Titles include "Song Of The Wanderer", "Bernie's Tune", "Slide Mr Trombone", "Travelin Light", "Lover Come Back To Me", and a unique vocal version of Teddy Edwards' "Sunset Eyes".

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.

Arista All StarsBlue Montreux ... LP
Arista, 1978. Very Good+ ... $5.99
A sweet session of 70s electric jazz – recorded as a unique live all-star outing by a group of Arista's best jazz players at the time! The group's an octet, but plays together in differing formations throughout the record – with Warren Bernhardt on keyboards, Michael Brecker on saxes, Randy Brecker on trumpet, Steve Jordan on drums, Steve Khan and Larry Coryell on guitars, Tony Levin on bass, and Mike Maineri on vibes – the last of which really make for some of the best numbers on the album! Bernhardt's keyboards are pretty good too – stepping out with a spacious, fluid feel that's never jamming – and more in the open-ended Bob James side of the spectrum, although his overall sound is a lot different than Bob's! Titles include "Blue Montreux", "Rocks", "I'm Sorry", "Magic Carpet", "Buds", "Floating", and "The Virgin & The Gypsy". LP, Vinyl record album
