Ocho 3 ... LP United Artists, 1974. New Copy (reissue)...
Temporarily Out Of Stock
The killer 3rd album by this legendary Latin group from the early 70s! The set's a very tasty batch of Latin jazz, Latin funk, and a few straighter Latin cuts – and it's possibly their toughest album to find in the original. The group gets hot and heavy on a Latin version of James Brown's ... (Latin) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Bye Bye Birdie ... CD United Artists/Warner (Japan), 1963. New Copy ...
About April 26, 2017
A great little jazz version of the score to the musical Bye Bye Birdie – one that we love for its original tunes, and which really lends itself to jazzy interpretation! Potts really gets at the spirit of the original, but opens things up nicely as a jazz solo vehicle – using players ... (Jazz) read moreCD
A stone cooker – and one of the best versions of Porgy & Bess recorded in a jazz format! It's a slightly-forgotten fact that at the time of the big late 50s film version of Porgy & Bess, there was a bit of trouble with the soundtrack – so the market was flooded with other ... (Jazz) read moreCD
An excellent bit of early 60s soulbop – and one of two rare albums ever cut by the obscure female alto player Vi Redd, one of the few women sax players of her generation to get recorded! The album's got an easygoing groove that's mighty nice – a touch of R&B at times, but not ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Wonderful stuff – a rare LP from the early 60's that has master reedman Jerome Richardson running through hip versions of hip tracks from hip (and not-so-hip) movies! Includes nice long versions of "Delilah" and "No Problem" (from Les Liasons Dangereuses), plus "Never ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Original mono pressing, with "ear" on one side. Cover has a small center split on the spine and a Radio Station Copy stamp on back.)
A fantastic record that's truly one of Tito Rodriguez's best from the 60s – a very jazzy affair, and one that breaks the pattern of most of his other albums of the time! As the title implies, Tito's working here live at Birdland nightclub – with a jazz-based lineup to match the setting ... (Latin) read moreCD
A real killer from the mighty Tito Rodriguez – a set that's got him opening up a bit more than usual, with a vibe that reflects some of the changes coming from the younger corners of the Latin scene! The album's got a lively feel, and a bit more jazz than usual from Tito – a flavor ... (Latin) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
One of the best Nino Rota scores for Fellini – and one that really recaptures all of the magic of the best early ones from the 60s! The orchestral passages are incredible – with a mix of strange instrumentation (vibes, organ, etc), and wonderfully spare arrangements. The other tracks ...

A really wild soundtrack to a really wild film – a movie set in pagan Rome, and one of the most offbeat Fellini films to ever hit the screen – which is quite a lot, given the director's other oeuvre! Nino Rota really steps up with his soundtrack here – and breaks the mold of his ... (Soundtracks) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has ring & edge wear with a promo sticker.)
A rare late LP Sam & Dave cut for United Artists in the mid 70s – with raw & gritty soul vocals and rough hewn, yet soulfully resonant production by Steve Cropper, and backing by a slew of Memphis sessions specialists! Back At Cha is a coulda-shoulda-woulda been great comeback effort ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Alive, and plenty lively – one of our favorite albums ever to feature the team of Al Cohn and Zoot Sims – and one that has them really stretching out a lot more than usual! The album's got a format that's quite different than the tightly-reigned sound of Sims and Cohn on other dates ... (Jazz) read moreCD
US pressing of an early Island Records classic – with cuts that include "Gimme Some Lovin", "Hammer Song", "It Hurts Me So", "Somebody Help Me", "Here Right Now", "Trampoline", and "Sittin & Thinkin". (Rock) LP, Vinyl record album
(Stereo pressing. Cover has wear and a name in marker.)
An unusual one from Dakota Staton – and almost a bit more bluesy than some of her Capitol sessions! Titles include "Supper Time", "I Stood By", "I Gotta Go", "Hurry Home", and "My Search Is Over". (Vocalists) LP, Vinyl record album
Original issue of this classic session that was later issued under the title Coltrane Time. This is the first mono version (it was later called Stereo Drive), with a race car on the cover. The record brings together two of the late 50's most promising modernists – Cecil Taylor and John ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Heavy red label pressing, with deep groove. Cover is quite nice, with just a bit of pen on back!)
First stereo pressing of a record that was issued earlier as Hard Driving Jazz, and later as Coltrane Time (it was later re-released under Coltrane's name.) The record brings together two of the late 50's most promising modernists – Cecil Taylor and John Coltrane – in a group that ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

A great soundtrack for a pretty darn obscure film – the third appearance of Inspector Clouseau, filmed after A Shot In The Dark and The Pink Panther, but featuring Alan Arkin in the title role, instead of Peter Sellers! The score is by Ken Thorne, and is quite different from more familiar ... (Soundtracks) read moreCD

A nicely rootsy set from the team of Ike & Tina Turner – an album that's almost more "down home" than any of the records made by the pair in their roots! The style here is that "back to the country" sound that was favored both with mainstream rock and soul-revival ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

A sweet sweet set from the mighty War – and maybe the record that really has the group coming into their own!

A wonderful first solo album from War – a set that has them breaking away from their early partnership with singer Eric Burdon – and finding an even better groove in the process!

A huge moment for War – maybe the group's biggest album of the 70s, but a set that still has them holding onto everything that makes the great!

A monster from start to finish – not only the greatest album from War, but maybe one of the greatest mainstream funk albums of all time! The set's got a really unique groove – one that so many others tried to copy, but which was forged here first – in a wicked LA blend of Chicano ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
War did the music for this funky soundtrack to an early Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs film, and although most of the stuff on here is just typical War stuff, there's one track called "Flying Machine" that's a long funky chase scene-type track that's worth the price of the album alone! Other ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Some of the greatest work ever recorded by Randy Weston! Forget his trio stuff, this is the material that made him an instant legend in the late 50s!

One of our favorite Johnny Williams soundtracks ever – music for a barely-remembered heist film that starred Dick Van Dyke, but a set of tracks that really shows Williams moving into some wonderful new territory!

The cover and the title are a great illustration of the growth of Bobby Womack on this classic 70s set – a mode of presentation that's maybe a bit more badass than before, without the down-home image of Bobby holding his guitar! Some aspects of the record are plenty darn righteous – ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A stone classic from Bobby Womack – one of those records that has all his best elements firmly in place, put forward at a level that's sophisticated and polished, yet never too commercial at all!

Killer 70s work from Bobby Womack – reinventing himself here in a great style that keeps all the warmth and soulfulness of his Minit recordings, and gives it a healthy dose of 70s soul production – creating a sweet new groove that pushed Womack into a huge new audience at the time! ...

Call it what you want, but to us, this is not so much an "oldies" set, as it is a great compilation of soul tunes that were issued on United Artists and some of its subsidiaries. 10 numbers in all, including the excellent Latin groover "Do You Dig It" by Ray Barretto, plus ...
