Loggins & Messina

Mother Lode
Columbia, 1974. Near Mint-
Mother Lode has a somewhat more fuller sound overall – one that's got bits of the western touches you might expect from the prospecting reference in the title – tunes that almost have a Deadwood way of echoing the past, but which come across with a much more 70s LA vibe overall. The ... LP, Vinyl record album (Rock LP)

Big Brother & The Holding Company

Cheap Thrills
Columbia, 1968. Near Mint- Gatefold
Cheap Thrills, maybe – but they cut deeply and last forever!

Maria Muldaur

Maria Muldaur
Warner, 1973. Near Mint- Gatefold
A landmark record from Maria Muldaur – quite different than the rougher folsky work she cut in the 60s – and done with a really warm studio sound that's pure 70s all the way through!

Village Again (Japan), 2010. Used
Samba infused club grooves from Shake The Dog – produced by the modern samba soul loving Bah Samba collective – with a warmly expansive sound to match the sprawling roster of guests!

Ubiquity, 2013. Used
A really wonderful collaboration between Shawn Lee and Adrian Quesada – and a set that maybe goes further than a lot of recent work from the artists on their own! Quesada's ear for the psychedelic mixes wonderfully with Lee's funky grooves – in a space that's as trippy as it is soulful ... CD (Deep Funk CD)
Tamla/Motown (Japan), 1970. Used
One of the greatest blue-eyed soul albums ever on Motown – featuring early work by British singer Kiki Dee, better known for her later hit with Elton John! Kiki here sounds much more like a Motown soul act than on later work – singing with a wonderfully smooth style that fits the motor ... CD (Soul CD)

Dirt Band

American Dream
Liberty, 1979. Very Good+
A set that continues the country rock crossover sound of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band – almost as if the group who preceded Poco and The Eagles were throwing their hat in the ring, and shining every bit as strongly in the 70s AOR limelight!

Capitol, 1966. Used
One of the greatest records of all time – and don't you forget it!

Julie London

Love On The Rocks
Liberty, 1963. Very Good+
A record that has Julie London already hitting that great "Nice Girls Don't Stay For Breakfast" mode of later years – the adult, informed approach that showed that the teasing nude of the 50s had turned into a pleasing woman of the 60s – capable of frank presentation of ... LP, Vinyl record album (Vocalists LP)

Bar Talk
Arista/Novus, 1980. Very Good+
Guitarist John Scofield works here in a wonderful setting – a loose trio with bassist Steve Swallow and drummer Adam Nussbaum – both of whom provide just the right sort of open, spacious sound to work with Scofield's tone! John's got that very chromatic way of playing at this point in ... LP, Vinyl record album (Jazz LP)

Hank Mobley

Slice Of The Top
Blue Note, 1966. Near Mint-
A lost session by Hank Mobley – originally recorded in 1966, but not officially issued until 1979, and then only briefly until another short issue in the mid 90s!
