AfriqueSoul Makossa ... CD
Mainstream/P-Vine (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $16.99
A killer album of Afro Funk – with a very unusual origin! In the wake of Manu Dibango's big hit (and some kind of failure to register the copyright), many many versions of "Soul Makossa" were recorded and released, some good, some bad. This album is a good example of that ... (Soul) read more CD

The first full album featuring the incredible voice of Janis Joplin, as the singer of Big Brother & The Holding Company!

ChubukosBoogie The Devil In (BumpThe Devil Out) (mono, stereo) ... 7-inch
Mainstream, 1974. Near Mint- ... $3.99
Great single by this obscure New York band! "Boogie The Devil" in is a killer funky number, with that high-pitched alien voice that you might remember from "Granny's Funky Rolls Royce". It's got a tight popping breaking groove, and is quite funny throughout. The flipside is a ... (Funky 45's) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Mainstream/We Want Sounds (UK), 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... Out Of Stock
There weren't many vocal albums on the Mainstream label during the early 70s, and this rare soul side is a real overlooked gem!

Catchy psychedelic era pop songcraft from Ellie Pop – one of the fruits from the vine of Mainstream Records' psyche years!

Mainstream/Legacy, Mid 60s. Used ... $9.99
A tight little set that's never too wild – given the sharpness that trumpeter Maynard Ferguson can bring to the way he arranges a group! The album's one from a lost point between the two bigger recording moments of Ferguson's career, and has a sound that steps off nicely from his Roulette ... (Jazz) read more CD

One of the most amazing albums ever from Frank Foster – a totally righteous set that's light years ahead of his earlier work with the Basie Band!

Pianist Hal Galper may be on an inner journey here – but he works with plenty of outward flow – really stepping out in an acoustic trio setting with the same sort of vibe that he brings to his work on Fender Rhodes!

Mainstream, Mid 60s. Sealed ... $6.99
Groovy soundtrack for this 60's international intrique film starring a young Horst Bucholz. Georges Garvarentz wrote and directed the music, with the sort of flair that he brings to the best of projects like these.

The soundtrack to the 60s version of Stagecoach – the one with the outrageously beautiful Ann Margaret, Bing Crosby, Red Buttons, Slim Pickens and Alex Cord – with a lavish, though appropriately dust-strewn Jerry Goldsmith soundtrack!

Great vintage recordings from Lightning Hopkins – initially recorded by producer Bob Shad on his trips to the south in the early 50s, then later issued on Shad's label Mainstream in the 60s!

Mainstream, Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A really beautiful little score by Maurice Jarre – smaller and more intimate than some of his other 60s work, with a number of nice tunes that turn slightly on a small amount of instrumentation. There's a feel here that's pretty dark overall – thin reed parts and a bit of harpsichord ... (Soundtracks) read more LP, Vinyl record album

One of the more obscure 60s albums cut by jazz vocalist Irene Kral – and a great little record that shows her to be more of a singer than we expected!

A hell of a soundtrack from the great Johnny Mandel – maybe his jazziest work of the 60s, and perfectly scored for this groovy cop film that stars Paul Newman as the 45-wielding title character!
