✨✧ Shorty RogersShorty Rogers Courts The Count ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1954. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Shorty Rogers courts Count Basie – but he does so in a way that's definitely all his own! The material may have Basie roots, but the overall execution is Shorty at his early 50s best – in a way that makes the album one of his strongest for RCA at the time – and that's saying a ...

Diana RossEaten Alive (2CD edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/FTG, 1985. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99 15.98
Michael Jackson gave Diana Ross the big title hit for this set – a track that also features his own guest vocals too – but most of the record was handled strongly by Barry Gibb, who not only co-produced the set, but wrote most of the material as well! Ross has a strong crossover feel ... (Soul) read more CD

✨✧ Diana RossSilk Electric (with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/FTG, 1982. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Diana Ross really finds a way to remake her groove here – a sweet new sound that fits her revamped look in the Andy Warhol image on the cover! Although Ross could sparkle strongly during the disco years, the best cuts here are some of the more midtempo moments – nicely spaced out in ... (Soul) read more CD
Also available Silk Electric ... LP 6.99

✨✧ Bjarne Rostvold TrioTricotism ... CD
RCA/Be! (Germany), Early 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Not the usual album you might expect from a group with a trio in the name – as there's no piano in the mix, and instead the album features some sparkling trumpet from the great Allan Botschinsky – heard here at the height of his youthful, modern powers! The combo's led by drummer ... (Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ Santa Y Su GenteUrgente ... CD
RCA/Lion, 1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
That's not Santa, as in Santa Claus – but a nickname for Santiago Salas, who works here in a very cool, jazzy mode! The album's got plenty of Latin roots, mixed with hipper 70s touches that include some key electric elements as well – all served up in a sparkling groove that's mighty ... (Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ Christian SchwindtFor Friends & Relatives ... CD
RCA/Be! (Germany), 1965. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Landmark work from the Finnish scene of the 60s – one of those ultra-rare European jazz records that collectors have dug for decades! The set's got a stark, modern sort of feel – but also a nice soulful swing, too – a balance that few of the other Scandinavians hit so well at the ... (Jazz) read more CD

RCA/Rocket (Finland), 1964/1966. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Landmark work from the Finnish scene of the 60s – one of those ultra-rare European jazz records that collectors have dug for decades! The set's got a stark, modern sort of feel – but also a nice soulful swing, too – a balance that few of the other Scandinavians hit so well at the ... (Jazz) read more CD

✨✧ Gil Scott-HeronRevolution Will Not Be Televised ... CD
RCA/Bluebird, Early 70s. New Copy ... $7.99
An 80s collection, but one that's filled with gems from Gil Scott-Heron's legendary early years at Flying Dutchman – a time when he was recording some of his most impressively righteous material ever! The music's a hip mix of protest poetry and sweet jazzy numbers – played with great ... (Soul) read more CD

ShirellesHappy & In Love/The Shirelles (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/Real Gone, 1971/1972. New Copy ... $15.99 16.98
Two albums and bonus tracks too – all rare material from an overlooked chapter of The Shirelles' career! First up is Happy & In Love, a great second chapter for The Shirelles – hardly the girl group pop they cut in the 60s, and instead a more righteous soul style for the 70s – ... (Soul) read more CD

Nina SimoneHere Comes The Sun ... CD
RCA (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... About October 15, 2015
Classic RCA work from the great Nina Simone – and an album that definitely shows Nina hitting more of the soul spectrum than some of her folk and jazz work of the 60s! The set's got these wonderful arrangements from Harold Wheeler – a bit electric, and done in a way that takes familiar ... (Vocalists) read more CD

✨✧ Nina SimoneSilk & Soul (expanded edition) ... CD
RCA, 1967. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of Nina's first for RCA – a mixture of jazz and soul tunes handled with some classy arrangements by Sammy Lowe, most of which feature nice electric bass work at the bottom by Gene Taylor! Taylor's bass gives the tracks a nice "dip" that's not exactly funky, but does provide a ... (Vocalists) read more CD

✨✧ Nina SimoneSings The Blues (expanded edition) ... CD
RCA, 1967. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Nina's not just singing the blues here – she's completely reinventing the sound of the format – by drawing on a long tradition of vocal expression, and infusing it with the hipper, more personally exploratory mode she forged in the 60s! The album's got a subtle brilliance that means ... (Vocalists) read more CD

✨✧ SpringSpring (2CD version – with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/Esoteric (UK), 1971. New Copy 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Not the obscure Brian Wilson project of the same name, but an obscure UK group who may well even be cooler overall! Spring only ever cut this one debut album for RCA in the early 70s, but it's a gem from the time – not just for the band's sense of singing and songwriting, but also for it's ... (Rock) read more CD

✨✧ StellaStella (expanded edition with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/RPM (UK), 1967. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Great girl pop from the French scene of the 60s – sung by the ultra-hip Stella, a singer we'd rank right up there with the best material from France Gall or Francoise Hardy at the time! Stella may have even more wit than both, though – as the tunes have this sharp, tongue in cheek ... (French) read more CD

Steven & SterlingOne Magic Night ... CD
RCA/PTG (Netherlands), 1982. New Copy ... $18.99
A groovy little gem from early 80s RCA – a set that sparkles with the same sort of energy as the label's work with Keni Burke at the time! Steven & Sterling are a hip duo who trade vocals back and forth nicely – working over rhythms that are mellow and midtempo, often with a hip ... (Soul) read more CD

Johnnie TaylorReflections ... CD
RCA/Fever Dream, 1977. New Copy ... $12.99
An obscure chapter in Johnnie Taylor's career – recorded between work at Stax and Columbia, with production and arrangements by Don Davis, who was a seminal force in guiding Johnnie's career. The album's a really strong one – with material that's a bit rootsier than the Columbia years, ... (Soul) read more CD

TeaseTease (RCA) (with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/FTG, 1983. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
A mix of bassy funk and mainstream electro grooving from Tease – the RCA album from the group, and a record that seems to share a lot with the Minneapolis groove of Prince and The Time! In fact, there's a partyful snapping quality to most of the tracks here that's very much in the Morris Day ... (Soul) read more CD

Fonzi ThorntonLeader (with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/FTG, 1983. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
The debut album from Fonzi Thornton – a singer who didn't even need to cop a Happy Days name to get our attention! The style here is tight 80s groove at its best – lots of keyboards and basslines driving the tunes right from the start, and a sound that's pretty lean overall – and ... (Soul) read more CD

ToomorrowToomorrow ... CD
RCA/Real Gone, 1970. New Copy ... $11.99
That's "Toomorrow", not "tomorrow" – a pretty wild sci-fi musical from the start of the 70s – and one that features this very groovy group! The quartet features some vocals by a young Olivia Newton John – but it's the instrumentation here that really sends us ... (Soundtracks) read more CD

✨✧ Armando TrovajoliBeat Generation (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
RCA/Contempo (Italy), 1960. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
The great Armando Trovajoli composed some of the grooviest soundtracks of the late 60s – but at the start of the decade, he was also shining strongly on the jazz front as well – turning out amazing work on albums like this, which we'd love to death, even if we didn't know him from his ...
