Randy Crawford —
Raw Silk ... LP Warner, 1979. Near Mint- ...
Just Sold Out!
A really wonderful little album from Randy Crawford – a lot jazzier than previous work, and done in a style that has Randy's vocals backed by small electric combo work on most cuts! Players on the set are a great batch of top-shelf fusion players – and include Don Grusin, William D ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Early 80s genius from Dalek I – aka Dalek I Love You – one of the leading lights of the Liverpool scene at the start of the decade – and a duo with almost as much dark electronics as some of their contemporaries in other North England cities! There's a slight tunefulness to most ... (Rock) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A wonderful live set from the Seven Steps-era Miles group – with rhythm by Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, and Tony Williams – and tunes that are all in that transformative mode that really showed Miles hitting a new voice at the time! Tenorist George Coleman's playing with the group on ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

A landmark album in harmony soul – one of those records that pushed the genre to a whole new level!

(Orange label pressing with deep groove. Cover has a name in marker on back.)
A sweet follow up to Martin Denny's Taste Of Honey album – one that's got a great blend of piano, vibes, and percussion – all used in a way that's almost more jazz-like than some of Denny's earlier work! The formula works great to transform a host of 50s and 60s tunes – and ... (Now Sound) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

This is it – the classic stormer by Bill Doggett that made his group a hit with all the kids! The album features the original two-part version of "Honky Tonk", plus the rarer "Honky Tonk Number Three", which as a wailing bit of vocals next to the chorus. Other tracks ...

Excellent cool jazz work from the postwar explosion on the Swedish jazz scene! Altoist Domnerus plays nicely swinging material with differing groups of Swedish players that include Lars Gullin, Gunnar Svensson, Rolf Ericson, and others. Tracks include "You Can Count On Me", "Party ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Hard to peg this group from Chicago – but the album's got some pretty unusual rhythms! The combo looks to be a funky one – but they play with distinct Caribbean and African influences in the bass and drum parts, and especially in the guitar, which jangles back and forth across the ...

Latin Hustle king Eddie Drennon move much more solidly into disco with this LP – especially on the title track, an up-tempo club remake of the Ellington classic "It Don't Mean A Thing". Still, the album's got some nice funky tracks that are pretty nice – like "Disco ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Drowning Pool —
Aphonia ... LP Fundamental, 1989. Near Mint- ...
Pop vocal arrangements by this jazzy diva from Chicago. Arrangements are by Oliver Nelson and Jimmy Jones, and the track list includes a lot of nice lesser-known tracks like "Take a Chance", "Watching the World Go By", and "Goodbye Is A Lonesome Sound" – plus a ...

A stellar solo set from John Edwards – one of the tightest talents of the southern scene in the mid 70s, and a singer who would later break big with The Spinners! This album's got a really unique vibe – with some slight tropical touches hinted at by the cover image – and some ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
We're not entirely sure when this one was recorded, but it's got a rawer soul sound than some of Donnie's east coast recordings for All Platinum. Donnie's voice is high and hard, with that unique crying sound that was his trademark. Tracks include "A Little Piece Of Leather," an almost ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Betty Everett and Jerry Butler certainly are delicious together – and the pair have more than enough great energy to hold on strong throughout this entire album of duets! Although Motown is probably best remembered as the home of the male/female duet mode of the 60s – Vee Jay certainly ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Rainbow label pressing. Cover has a split top seam, half split bottom seam & a hype sticker at the bottom & a peeled spot in the top right corner.)
An early 80s classic from Richard Dimples Fields – one of the most unique talents in soul music of his generation – with an appeal that's both down home, and smoothly sophisticated at the time! In a way, Fields' music represents many changes his audience was going through at the time ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
An auspicious name, but an intimate little record – one served up by the vocal duo of Wendy Simon and Eric Shaw – in a mode that's a fair bit like work from Jackie & Roy, but a bit more bop-oriented as well! The pair do a great job of riffing together on the upbeat numbers – ... (Vocalists) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
An unusual session from the great Clare Fischer – although probably his best-known record as well! Clare cut many other jazz sides in a smaller, more intimate setting – but this album features his full talents as a larger arranger – working with a hip ensemble, and turning in ...

Hard rockin party soul from the legendary Flares – a sock-soul west coast group who flourished briefly in the early 60s!

Fleetwood Mac —

A Cali group, but one who cut this sweet 80s set for the Malaco label – a record that's definitely much more street beat oriented than most of the usual blues and southern soul you'd find on the imprint! The tunes have a snapping array of beats and keyboards, one that definitely matches the ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A hastily assembled album designed to cash in on the success of The Foundations' huge hit "Build Me Up Buttercup" – and one that features one side of studio material, and one side of live material.

A wild little concept album from the Four Seasons – one that's packaged in newspaper-style cover, and which presents tunes that almost have that late 60s British "snapshots of life" approach to pop – particularly that put forth by The Kinks on Village Green Preservation ...

Gil Fuller with James Moody —
Night Flight ... LP Pacific Jazz, 1965. Very Good+ Gatefold ...
A newly majestic setting for James Moody in the 60s – thanks to the mighty arranging talents of Gil Fuller! The album's similar to one that Fuller did with Dizzy Gillespie at the same time – a blend of large ensemble backings and soulful work by the solo star – which in this case ...

Sketches and songs by Flip Wilson's Geraldine character – one of the finest moments in TV drag from the 70s! Features guest appearances by Jim Brown, Bing Crosby, Ruth Buzzy, Billy Eckstine, and Tony Randall. (Comedy/Spoken) LP, Vinyl record album
The tenor of Stan Getz meets the baritone sax of Gerry Mulligan – and then they switch things around for half of the record, as Stan picks up the baritone and Mulligan takes on tenor!

No doubt about it – these guys are groovy! Groovy like Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66 – with a sweet male/female harmony vocal style, applied here to a mixture of bossa nova tunes and 60s pop numbers, recorded in Mexico by this Swedish combo, with a sound that would make A&M weep! ...

Ever wonder what happens when beatniks turn into hippies? They make albums like this one – a real treasure from the late 60s underground – and a set that showed the complete transformation of Allen Ginsberg at the time! The set's a real oddity – recorded after Ginsburg had hit ... (Comedy/Spoken) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Promo. Cover has light wear & a peeled spot from sticker removal.)
Although Roy's probably better known as a very qualified soul arranger/composer, this album features him in the lead as a vocalist – singing over his own backing, in a style that's part mellow iceman soul, and part 60s pop soul. Roy's vocals aren't the best we've ever heard on a soul album, ... (Soul) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Sticks & Bones – percussion and trombones – a great little combination in the hands of hi-fi arranger Marty Gold!
