Impulse, New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A fantastic addition to the John Coltrane catalog, and a set that's wonderful for so many different reasons it's hard to fit them all in one short passage!

Mercury/Esoteric (UK), Late 70s. New Copy 8CD

Atlantic/Soulmusic.com (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 3CD
A fantastic run of music from a group who were key to the rising sound of soul music on Atlantic Records during the 60s – but who sometimes didn't always get their due! The Sweet Inspirations have roots in gospel – as the famous Drinkard Sisters – and they've also got a legacy ... CD

Riverside, 1959. New Copy (reissue)
A record that hides a bit under its title and cover – looking like a songbook session, and without Chet Baker's dreamy face on the front – but one that stands every bit as strongly with Baker's other late 50s sessions for Riverside, and done with an equally nice set of New York elements ...

Alice Coltrane

Kirtan – Turiya Sings
Impulse, 1982. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
