My Romance ... LP Vee Jay/RVC (Japan), 1960. Near Mint- ...
Temporarily Out Of Stock
A rare session from Chicago pianist Chris Anderson – a hell of a player on the ivories, but one who's been woefully under-recorded over the years! This gem was originally cut for Vee Jay in 1960, but not issued until many years later for this Japanese release – and we're extremely ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Classic Chicago soul from the great Dee Clark – one of the most versatile vocalists ever to work for Vee Jay Records, as you'll hear on this set! Dee could be sweet one minute, rocking the next – and had a great vocal range that was always used well on the range of material he sung. ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A key set of early work from Betty Everett – and a great document of the strength of her early soul on Vee Jay! Although the title hit is quite familiar (and possibly a bit overplayed), Betty was a great vocalist with a wide command of material even at this early point in her career – ...

Sings ... LP Vee Jay, Mid 60s. Sealed ...
Just Sold Out!
One of the true hit jazz albums of the 60s, and a record that's still pretty darn incredible today! Who'd have thought that a jazz recording of the theme to the film "Exodus" could have been such a hit? It was, and the way Eddie handled it forever transformed the face of jazz. Eddie ...

(Rainbow label stereo pressing with Audiomatrix stamp. Vinyl is double labeled on Side 1, and has some noisy residue on Side 2. Cover has a Stereo sticker on front, and some notes in pen and name in marker in back.)
Although Exodus to Jazz was probably the biggest album of Eddie's career, we've always been a bit more partial to this excellent LP, a terrific document of Eddie's work from his early days on the Chicago jazz scene. Featuring Eddie's good early group with Willie Pickens on piano, Jo Dorio on ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Summit Meeting ... LP Vee Jay, Early 60s. Very Good ...
A great assortment of some of the great jazz recorded during the short-lived run of Vee Jay Records – titles that include "Exodus" by Eddie Harris, "Awful Mean" by Paul Chambers, "Wrinkles" by Wynton Kelly, "Bye Bye Blackbird" by Bill Henderson, "Ha ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label stereo pressing, with Bell Sound etch – nice and clean! Cover has a bit of seam splitting, but is nice overall.)
John Lee Hooker takes a step or two into the bluesy soul sound of the early 60s on this sweet set on Vee Jay – while style flaunting his true blues pedigree really, really well! The grit of his voice is as heavily emotive and unshakable as ever – backed by a crack combo on drums, ... (Blues) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(60s black label pressing, with silver text, and extra track!)
The MJT grooves like nobody's business, thanks to a core rhythm group that includes Harold Mabern on piano, Walter Perkins on drums, and Bob Cranshaw on bass. Add to the mix a young Frank Strozier on alto, fresh from Memphis (he made the trip to Chi-town with buddy Harold Mabern), and the smoking ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Gold label pressing with deep groove. Cover has light wear near the bottom, and a light stain on the back bottom.)
Great Vee Jay Records material by Jimmy Reed – still raw and very much at the top of his game here, and serving up some lesser-known tracks that are as great as his classics! Titles include "Roll & Rhumba", "Oh, John", "Too Much", "Odds & Ends" ... (Blues) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label pressing, mono. Cover has a mono sticker, and some light wear on the back – but this is a great copy overall.)
Jimmy Reed takes on a host of older blues standards – tunes made famous initially by other recordings, all served up here with the trademark Jimmy Reed rasp and wail! Titles include "Outskirts Of Town", "The Comeback", "Cherry Red", "Five Long Years", ... (Blues) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Black label Exodus pressing. Cover has a split top seam, light wear, and some aging.)
A rare album of classic doo wop – from one of Chicago's greatest harmony groups! In contrast to labelmates The El Dorados, The Spaniels were a bit smoother, and added more of a sweet harmony sound to their style – as you'll know from tracks like "Goodnite Sweetheart Goodnite" ...
