Leon ThomasSpirits Known & Unknown ... LP
Flying Dutchman, 1969. Very Good- Gatefold ... $9.99
Wonderful work from Leon Thomas – easily one of his greatest albums ever, and a set that was recorded at the same time he was working with Pharoah Sanders! Thomas really rose to fame on Sanders' classic "The Creator Has A Master Plan" – and this set really takes off from that moment – letting Leon spin out some spiritual vibes of his own, and step into a few fresh new styles as well! The album's plenty righteous right from the start – partly because the lineup includes James Spaulding on alto and flute, Lonnie Liston Smith on piano, Cecil McBee on bass, and the enigmatic "Little Rock" on tenor – who is actually Pharoah Sanders – but also because Leon serves up a shorter take on "The Creator Has a Master Plan" – done in a great style! The album also features a classic vocal take on Horace Silver's "Song for My Father", with lyrics that we totally love – plus the frenetic "Malcolm's Gone" – and the tracks "One", "Echoes", "Let The Rain Fall On Me", and "Damn Nam".

✨✧ VariousMetti Una Bossa A Cena ... LP
Schema (Italy), 2000. Used 2LP ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic collection of rare bossa material from Italy! The set's one of the best we've ever seen of this type, and it's a completely fresh batch of tunes that breaks past a lot of the other Italian compilations of recent years. Some of the artists are familiar names – like Morricone, Piccioni, and Trovajoli – but there's plenty of other artists that we've never even heard before! A few themes are reworkings of familiar soundtrack tunes, but most of the material is original – and done with a sparkling sound that's really great! The grooves are filled with loads of tight drums, bubbling organ, jangly piano, and sweet female vocals in sort of a Morricone-ish tradition. Great stuff, and with 20 excellent tracks that include "Amori Finiti" by Giancarlo Gazzani, "Relief" by The Black Fire, "Rossana" by Armando Trovajoli, "Sometime" by A Santisteban, "Tema Di Linda" by Franco Micalizzi, "Curriculum" by Franco Chiari, "Coronado 990" by Orchestra Henry Stone, "Meditation" by Romano Mussolini, and "Warm Blood" by Tullio Gallo.

ORG, Late 50s/Early 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock

✨✧ Rance Allen GroupI Feel Like Going On ... LP
Stax, 1980. Very Good+ ... $9.99
A great little record from Rance – recorded in 1980 on his return to Stax after a stint at Capitol. The set's got a really wonderful feel – all the deep soul of Rance's early albums for Stax, mixed with some of the bubbling touches he picked up from working with Larry Mizell at Capitol. The whole thing's a magically righteous experience – and Rance's voice is better than ever, with a feel that's got a bit of DJ Rogers in it. Titles include "I Feel Like Going On", "Where Did I Go Wrong", "Some People", "Can't Get Enough", and "I Will Forever Lean On You". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a large name in marker and a pormo stamp. Labels have some pen.)

Rance Allen GroupSmile ... LP
Stax, 1979. Very Good+ ... $6.99
An oft-overlooked album that Rance and group recorded during a return to Stax after their record on Capitol with Larry Mizell. The groove here is more tightly produced than on their earlier Stax LPs, with more of a modern soul sound, and more of an orientation towards a dancefloor beat – but the core of the music is still in the group's gospel-drenched soul style of the early years. Rance's voice is in beautiful form (as always), and his rich baritone sings out loud and clear on tracks like "I'm Thankful", "Smile", "Going Home", and "Where Have All Your Friends Gone". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Gene AmmonsJug (alternate cover) ... LP
Prestige, 1961. Very Good ... $11.99
A real turning point in the career of Gene Ammons – a record that almost returns Ammons to his earthier roots, and in the process helps build up a whole new sound in soul jazz for the 60s! The "Jug" nickname in the title is kind of a joking way to help Ammons stand alongside "Miles", "Trane", "Diz", and other one-name monikered stars in jazz – but even without that gimmick (which somehow lasted for years), the album's got a depth that more than gets Gene back on top, thanks to a gritty soulfulness and good sense of feeling in the grooves! Players here include Richard Wyands on piano on most numbers – plus a rare appearance by Clarence "Sleepy" Anderson on 2 numbers – one on organ, one on piano. Rhythm is by Doug Watkins on bass and JC Heard on drums – and Ray Barretto makes one of his great soul jazz appearances on drums – rolling the groove along with a nice bit of bounce throughout! Titles include "Tangerine", "Ol Man River", "Easy To Love", "Seed Shack", "Miss Lucy", and "Namely You". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing. Cover has a cutout notch.)

Atlantic StarrAll In The Name Of Love ... LP
Warner, 1986. Very Good+ ... $1.99
A mid 80s classic from Atlantic Starr – at the height of their catchy commercial fame – bouncing along with rhythms that crossover nicely to the mainstream, yet still keep a bit of their previous funky edge intact! The groove here is almost in the style that Atlantic Starr inspired in so many other younger groups in the earlier part of the 80s – although it's also a bit more polished too. Most instrumentation is electric, and tunes are mostly written by the team of David and Wayne Lewis – both of whom sing on the record. Barbara Weathers also handles female vocals, and titles include "Once Lover At A Time", "Let The Sun In", "My Mistake", "I'm In Love", "Always", "Don't Take Me For Granted", and a version of Sam Dees' "All In The Name Of Love".

BadfingerStraight Up ... LP
Apple, 1971. Very Good+ ... $24.99
Badfinger's early 70s win streak continues on Straight Up – a straight up classic set of tuneful 70s rock with big emotions and catchy songs – one that keeps just enough grit underneath those killer melodies! Titles include "Take It All", "Bably Blue", "Name Of The Game", "Perfection", "It's Over", "Sometimes" and more. This might be the group's most consistent batch of songs to date, and it's essential early 70s rock for sure. LP, Vinyl record album

Hank BallardJumpin' ... LP
King, 1963. Very Good ... $39.99
Late work from Hank Ballard's first run at King Records – some rocking soul tracks from the early 60s, with the gritty edge that we've come to expect from Hank. Titles include "Get Ready", "I'm Learning", "What's Your Name", "Excuse Me (I Think I've Got A Heartache)", 'She's The One" and "Your Lovin'". LP, Vinyl record album
(Heavy black label pressing – nice and clean! Top cover seam is split, but rest of cover is nice. Record has a spot of paint on one track, which clicks for just a few spins.)

✨✧ BeatlesSgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band ... LP
Capitol/Apple, 1967. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $34.99
Hard to deny the lasting power of this crucial album from The Beatles – a set that unleashed some of their trippiest sounds and most tender moments too! The mix of wit and honesty is wonderful – and the sonic range is dynamic as the archetypal cover image – a package that's had an undeniable impact on modern music for the past few decades! Titles include "With A Little Help From My Friends", "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds", "She's Leaving Home", "Lovely Rita", "When I'm Sixty Four", "A Day In The Life", and "Fixing A Hole".

BeatnutsMilk Me ... LP
Penalty, 2004. Sealed 2LP ... $6.99
A nice set from the Beatnuts – still bangin' after all these years! Bass rattlin', hand clappin', bottom heavy beaters made the Nuts' name – and the skills are still in tact. Les & Juju aren't out to re-invent the wheel here, they're just out to lay down a funky ass, propulsive gem – and they deliver! Tracks include "Find Us" with Akon, "Hot" with Greg Nice, "U Nomsayin" feat Freeway, "We Don't Give A Funk", "We Gettin' Paper" with Tripe Seis & Gab Goblin, "Freak Off" with Chris Chandler, "Buggin'" with Prince Whipper Whip and more.

Walter BishopHot House ... LP
Muse, 1979. Very Good ... $4.99
Walter Bishop takes a trip back to his bop roots with this one – working in trio and quintet formation, and running through a host of mostly older bop standards! The quintet tracks are our favorites – as it's not often we hear Bishop in this stretch with a group larger than a trio – and the presence of Bill Harman and Junior Cook on trumpet and tenor, respectively, fleshes out the record with a nicely soulful sound. The rest of the group features Sam Jones on bass and Al Foster on drums – who also play on the trio tracks – and titles include "Dahoud", "Move", "My Little Suede Shoes", "All God's Children", and "Hot House".

Black UhuruBlack Uhuru ... LP
Virgin (UK), 1979. Very Good+ ... $14.99
A collection of tracks released in the US under the name Guess Who's Coming To Dinner, probably Black Uhuru's finest moment, their first set after they made the transition from working with Jammy to Sly & Robbie's forward looking sound, and the first set to include the great Puma Jones as the third voice, replacing Errol Nelson alongside Duckie Simpson and Michael Rose. The entire first side is some of the heaviest modern roots around, solid from start to finish with "Shine Eyed Gal", "Leaving To Zion", "General Penitentiary" and "Guess Who's Coming To Dinner", and the second side doesn't let up either, with "Abortion", "Natural Reggae Beat" and "Plastic Smile". Essential! LP, Vinyl record album

Art Blakey & Thelonius MonkArt Blakey's Jazz Messengers With Thelonious Monk ... LP
Atlantic, 1957. Very Good+ ... $16.99
Angular Monk meets hard-driving Art Blakey – in a session that's quite unique, and which has gone onto become one of the best-remembered Atlantic jazz sessions of the late 50s! The album features Blakey in that key non-Blue Note year of 1957 – a time when he was working with a variety of players, at a variety of labels, and taking some real chances with his music before settling into his more established hit Jazz Messengers sound. The group here is Art's own – with Johnny Griffin on tenor, Bill Hardman on trumpet, and Spanky DeBrest on bass – augmented by the piano of Thelonious Monk – a match that might seem unlikely at first, but not so much so after you consider the great work that Monk and Griffin did together at Riverside during the late 50s. There's a nice match between Johnny's sharp-edged tenor and Monk's imaginative playing – and if anything, the record has Blakey, Hardman, and DeBrest moving dynamically to keep up with the flurry of modern ideas coming from Griffin and Monk! Tracks are almost all originals by Thelonious too – a fact that definitely helps keep up the "Monk-ish" sound of the record – titles that include "Evidence", "Blue Monk", "I Mean You", and "Rhythm A Ning" – alongside Griffin's "Purple Shades". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Bootsy's Rubber BandAhh...The Name Is Bootsy, Baby! ... LP
Warner, 1977. Very Good- Gatefold ... $5.99
Massive work from Bootsy Collins – one of his best-ever solo albums, and a perfect summation of the P-Funk groove – focused strongly through Bootsy's own sense of stardom! George Clinton worked with Collins on production, and the album's as tight as the best Parliament or Funkadelic work of the time – particularly the latter on their killer 70s sides for Warner, which was also the home for Bootsy. The Horny Horns are helping out on this one, which gives the album a strong instrumental drive – but the real star is Bootsy, whose sexy vocals and good sense of soul keep things firmly on track throughout. Features the cuts "What's A Telephone Bill?", "Munchies For Your Love", "We Want Bootsy", "The Pinocchio Theory", and "Rubber Duckie". LP, Vinyl record album

Bowman TrioBowman Trio (with bonus download) ... LP
WeJazz (Finland), 2016. Sealed ... $14.99
Great work from the Bowman Trio – a group named not for any of the musicians who perform , but for the writer J Bowman – whose words inspired each of the songs on the set! The trio features Tomi Nikku on trumpet, Joonas Tuuri on bass, and Sami Nummela on drums – all Finnish players who are relatively new to our ears, but who come on here with a dynamic energy that really blows us away – an approach that's maybe somewhere in the territory of free jazz, but a lot more focused – yet still a lot farther-out than some of the work from other corners of the Scandinavian scene! The drums and bass really push most tracks with a soaring sort of power – and Nikku has this way of running high and low on his horn, in one of the most searching, searing takes on trumpet we've heard in a long time – and one of the freshest, too. Titles include "How To Win A Gun Fight", "Bowman Cigarettes", "Hard Work", "Khumbu Icefall", "Am Prayer", and "Summer In Visby". LP, Vinyl record album
(Clear vinyl pressing.)
