AssociationAssociation ... LP
Warner, 1969. Sealed Gatefold ... $7.99
Really great work by The Association – a back-to-basics effort that has the group handling most of the instrumentation themselves, in a way that often gives the set a surprisingly intimate feel! Sure, these are the guys who virtually invented candy-coated Sunshine Pop – but they're also a heck of a great group at the core, and move here into some of the looser, more relaxed modes of the Warner Brothers scene at the time – a setting that really helps them bring a hell of a lot of personality to the music. Harmony vocals still soar out beautifully when needed, and the arrangements and songwriting show a lot more signs of their association with the hip LA scene of the 60s – a maturation that really pushes their sound forward in a wonderful way. Titles include "Broccoli", "The Nest", "Love Affair", "Boy On the Mountain", "Under Branches", "Goodbye Forever", and "Yes I Will". LP, Vinyl record album
(Sealed. Cover has a cut corner.)

AssociationBirthday ... LP
Warner, 1968. Very Good ... $5.99
One of the harder to find LPs by this fantastic pop harmony group from LA. You already know their hits from other LPs, but this one's got a bit more of a rock sound, and some excellent groovy production by Bones Howe. All of the tracks are originals, and they've got nice groovy themes, as you'll guess from titles like "The Bus Song", "Birthday Morning", "Barefoot Gentleman", "Toymaker", and "Rose Petals, Incense, & A Kitten"!

AssociationRenaissance ... LP
Valiant, 1966. Very Good+ ... $4.99
An aptly-titled album, as it sprung the genius of The Association fully onto the world – and forever changed the rules for dreamy vocal pop music! The album's a wonderful blend of sweet harmonies, LA production, and the kind of slightly-trippy song stylings you already know from The Association's biggest hits. However, the album's also filled with great little songs that you probably haven't heard before – which makes it an even bigger treat, kind of like stumbling upon a treasure box of unheard musical gems that you've been looking for your entire life! Titles include "Songs In The Wind", "Memories Of You", "No Fair At All", "Pandora's Golden Heebie Jeebies", and "Another Time Another Place". LP, Vinyl record album

Association/Charles FoxGoodbye Columbus – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Warner, 1969. Sealed ... $4.99
A groovy groovy soundtrack that contains one of the Association's greatest songs! "Goodbye Columbus" may not be as famous as some of their bigger hits – but we love it to death, and it's the kind of catchy groover they'll find us singing in the coffin long after we've passed away! The soundtrack features the vocal version of the track – as well as some other vocal numbers like "It's Gotta Be Real" and "So Kind To Me". Plus, the soundtrack's also got some excellent instrumental numbers that are in the best spirit of the group's music – with loads of dreamy arrangements and light lilting pop melodies. Tunes include "Love Has A Way", "A Moment To Share", "A Time For Love", and "How Will I Know You?". LP, Vinyl record album

Munich (Netherlands), 1970. Very Good+ ... $59.99
Funky fusion recording from 1970, featuring drummer Pierre Courbois, guitarist Toto Blanke, bassist Sigi Busch, and keyboardist Jasper Van't Hoff. The sound is nice and spare at times, with sort of a freewheeling post-Bitches Brew feel to it, and none of the overdone bam-bam-bam moments that mar some of the later Association PC records. Cuts include "Spider", "Jazzper", and "Earwax". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Gary BartzLove Affair ... LP
Capitol, 1978. Very Good- ... $4.99
A wicked set from the great Gary Bartz – one done after his mid 70s association with Larry Mizell – but still very much in a similar groove! The album's a great blend of Gary's soulful alto work with sweet electric backings – often put together with that angular stepping mode he used on some of his gentler funky numbers – and blended with a few mellower moments that live up to the title of the record, and really let Bartz stretch out on soulful solos. There's plenty of nice keyboards on the set, but Nate Morgan also brings in a slightly righteous vibe at times too – and titles include "Shake Your Body", "Love Affair", "At Last", and a remake of "Giant Steps", done in a pretty great way that has it sounding like a sweet 70s modal groover.

BloChapters & Phases – The Complete Albums 1973 to 1975 (Chapter One/Phase II) ... CD
Rev-Ola (UK), 1973/1975. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
One of the hippest groups of the Nigerian scene of the 70s – presented here in two classic albums, back to back on a single CD! Chapter One is a landmark set of African grooves – very unusual in both conception and execution – with a feel that's unlike anything we can think of! There's definitely a rock influence in the set, but the music isn't rock at all – it's a very dark, almost dubby groove at points – and a bit more straightforwardly funk at others – almost a post-colonial style that clearly comes from a London influence, given to the group by a previous association with Ginger Baker. Rhythms are quite tight, and the bass is as strong as the drums – mixed up nicely with riffing guitar, and moody vocals that color the whole thing nicely. Titles include "Preacherman", "Time To Face The Sun", "We Are Out Together", "Chant To Mother Earth", "Miss Sagitt", "Beware", and "We Gonna Have A Party". Phase II is a critical next step for the group – music that's even deeper than before, but a bit funkier too! There's clearly some touches here of other African funk of the time – especially in the way the guitar parts groove with the rhythms – although those heavy Blo basslines from before are still nicely in place, as are some of the fuzzier production elements too. Titles include "Whole Lot Of Sh*t", "Atide", "Blo", "It's Gonna Be A Good Day", "Native Doctor", and "Don't Take Her Away From Me". CD

2 LP set of haunting piano stuff by Jaki Byard, recorded in his early days on Prestige, and not too long after his association with Mingus. He's backed here by some great trio players, including Ron Carter, Roy Haynes, and Pete La Roca, and the set has a lot more going on than the usual piano jazz album. Tracks include "Cinco Y Quatro", "To My Wife", "Hi Fly", "Yamekraw", and "There Are Many Worlds". LP, Vinyl record album

Cryan ShamesSugar & Spice ... LP
Columbia, 1966. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
The breakout album for The Cryan Shames – a wonderfully groovy harmony pop combo from the 60s – one with a sound that's very much the best Sunshine Pop of LA, even though these guys hail from our hometown of Chicago! The vocals come together with a really magical feel – sometimes mellow and drifty, ala The Association – sometimes vibrant and soaring, in a really catchy way! The whole album's great – with just a touch of Brit invasion guitar jangle behind the vocals at times – and titles include "Heat Wave", "We'll Meet Again", "If I Needed Someone", "Hey Joe", "Sugar & Spice", "July", "I Wanna Meet You", and "Ben Franklin's Almanac". LP, Vinyl record album

Gloria JonesShare My Love (with bonus track) ... CD
Motown/Reel Music, 1973. Used ... $14.99
A heavy heavy set from Gloria Jones – a record that features some killer Paul Riser arrangements that are right up there with the deepest Motown work of the early 70s! Jones' groove is always a bit different than most of her contemporaries – not the usual Motown bag, and really far-reaching for the label – heavy funk one minute, more sophisticated the next – and almost pointing the way towards her later association with T Rex, and Gloria's time in the UK. Riser really pushes himself strongly here – backing Gloria with full strings on some tracks, soaring in the trademark upbeat Riser groove – then dropping into heavier rhythms at other points, with complicated elements that make the album a treasure trove of fresh surprises with each new track! Cuts include "Share My Love", "Oh Baby", "Old Love New Love", "Try Love", "So Tired", "Baby Don't Cha Know", and "Why Can't You Be Mine". CD also features a bonus demo version of "I I Were Your Woman" – and comes with a 16 page booklet, filled with notes, album details, photos, and even a short essay by Rolan Bolan – the son of Gloria Jones and Marc Bolan.

King CurtisSoul Twist ... LP
Enjoy, Early 60s. Very Good ... $9.99
Raw early work from King Curtis – an album of searing sax instrumentals, recorded for the smaller Enjoy label in the years before King's more famous association with Atlantic! The sound here is equal parts R&B and instrumental soul – hardly the throwaway pop you might guess from the "twist" in the title, and instead a key transitional album in shaping the sound of the sax in soul during the 60s – blown to perfection, but never as over the top as some of the honkers and shouters of 50s sax sessions. Tracks are a good mix of King-penned originals and soulful covers – with highlights that include "Soul Twist", "I Know", "Sack O Woe", "Wobble Twist", "Twisting With the King", and "Big Dipper". LP, Vinyl record album
(Gold label pressing with deep groove. Cover has a name in pen.)

Ivo Perelman/Matthew Shipp/William Parker/Bobby KappIneffable Joy ... CD
ESP, 2019. New Copy ... $12.99
One of the best showcases we've heard for the tenor sax work of Ivo Perelman in years – an open, blue-tinged performance that seems to open up his horn with a lot more soul than we remember! Of course, some of the credit certainly goes to the other partners on the date – Matthew Shipp on piano, William Parker on bass, and Bobby Kapp on drums – a lineup that benefits from the long, lovely association between Shipp and Parker, who have returned to some tremendous new heights in recent years – and whose work alone on the record is more than enough to win us over. Perelman comes as maybe a bit of icing on the cake – but of the sweetest variety – on titles that include "Bliss", "Ebullience", "Rejoicing", "Elation", "Ecstasy", and "Exuberance" – all titles that definitely describe the performance!

StylisticsLet's Put It All Together ... LP
Avco, 1974. Very Good+ ... $3.99
Mid-period Stylistics, recorded after their association with Thom Bell and Linda Creed, and during the time that the group was handled by Hugo & Luigi. H&L do an ok job with them, and they've got Van McCoy handling arrangements to add a bit more soul to the mix – but the record is still down a few notches from the classic years. The album includes one last Thom Bell arrangement – the group's huge "You Make Me Feel Brand New" – plus other cuts like "Love Is The Answer", "I Got Time On My Hands", "I Got A Letter", and "We Can Make It Happen Again", perhaps the group's wish for a bigger hit.

Art TaylorTaylor's Tenors ... CD
Prestige/New Jazz/OJC, 1959. Used ... $18.99
Art Taylor's a drummer, but he gladly gives center stage here to the tenors – a great pairing of Frank Foster and Charlie Rouse, both of whom hit some of their hardest notes of the 50s on this date! The album's got a tighter quality than some of the more open-ended blowing session dates of the time on Prestige – a great focus that brings real sharpness from both Foster and Rouse, driven by rhythm from the trio of Walter Davis on piano, Sam Jones on bass, and Taylor on drums. There's a slight Monkish bent to some numbers, especially on the angular head arrangements – which almost point the way towards Rouse's famous association with Monk in the 60s. Titles include "Rhythm-a-ning", "Little Chico", "Cape Millie", "Straight No Chaser", "Fidel", and "Dacor". CD

VariousFor Discos Only – Indie Dance Music From Fantasy & Vanguard Records – 1976 to 1981 (3CD set) ... CD
Fantasy/Craft, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3CD ... $24.99 35.99
Rare singles from the glory days of the American club music scene – most of which were only issued as promo release – hence the "for discos only" in the title! The package looks at the wealth of material issued by the Fantasy and Vanguard family of labels in the late 70s – imprints that have never fully gotten their due, in comparison to companies like Salsoul or Philadelphia International – even though they made an equally huge contribution to the world of funky grooves! In fact, given that Fantasy owned Prestige and other jazz labels at the time, they also had a longer heritage in soulful music – which often made some of their singles these real mini-masterpieces in sound. Vanguard was equally unusual, but in a different way – as disco and club were relatively new to their catalog – which almost seemed to give them a freedom to be a bit more experimental than some of the bigger companies working the dancefloors. The result is a great collection of really creative, really upbeat material – almost all of which is nice and extended, and presented here on the rare 12" single versions. Titles include "Til You Surrender (special rmx)" by Rainbow Brown, "Rock Creek Park (rmx)" by The Blackbyrds, "No One Can Do It Like You (12" special Shep Pettibone rmx)", "Chill Out (12" version)" by Free Expression, "I Don't Know What's On Your Mind (special 12" mix)" by Spiders Webb, "Over & Over (special 12" disco)" by Sylvester, "Turn The Music Up (12" disco)" by Players Association, "Beat Of The Night (special 12" disco)" by Fever, "Party Vibes (special 12" disco)" by Ike Turner & Home Grown Funk, "You've Got Me Dancing In My Sleep (special remaster)" by Frisky, "Boogie City (special 12" disco mix)" by Phil Hurtt, "Space Bass (special 12" disco)" by Slick, "Mondo Man (12" version)" by Roni Griffith, "It's Music (special 12" disco)" by Damon Harris, "Always There (special 12" disco)" by Side Effect, "For Your Love (special 12" disco)" by Idris Muhammad, "Straight To The Bank (special 12" disco)" by Bill Summers, "Boogie With Me (12" disco)" by Poussez, "Don't Know What To Say" by The Blackbyrds, "I'm The One" by Rainbow Brown, "I Got The Feeling (Patrick Cowley megamix)" by Two Tons O Fun, "Dance (special 12" disco)" by Paradise Express, and "Savage Lover (12" disco long vocal)" by The Ring.

Includes some great tunes by beloved scenesters of the time like West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band, Peanut Butter Conspiracy, Electric Prunes and Love, and many more from lesser remembered and rarely (if ever!) compiled groups, too.

A lost slice of work from Sun Ra's early 70s years on Impulse Records – one of the few new recordings created for his association with that label (most of the titles were reissues of earlier Saturn albums) – but one that was never issued at the time! Cymbals saw some release later, during the 90s – but this package really expands on that album by adding in a whole extra set of recordings from what appear to be the same sessions – and which really flesh out the vibe of the performance! The core group is a sextet – with Ra at the helm on some of his cool electric keyboards – including minimoog, rocksichord, and Gibson Kalamazoo – with acoustic work from Eloe Omoe on bass clarinet, Tal Ebah on trumpet, Ronny Boykins on bass, Harry Ar on drums, and Derek Morris on congas. Much of the core music explores a tension between Ra's cosmic keys and the more earthy sound of the acoustic instruments – but the added material here opens up some nicely different moods, and makes the whole thing explode with deep colors. Titles on Cymbals include "Land Of The Day Star", "Thoughts Under A Dark Blue Light", "The Mystery Of Two", and "The World Of The Invisible" – and added tracks include "Space Landing", "Of Drastic Measures", "Of Otherness", "The Universe Is Calling", and "Destination Of The Known Universe".

The set's as groovy as groovy can be – and it features a dream selection of tunes pulled from albums on Warner Brothers, Atlantic, and Elektra from the late 60s and early 70s, plus a few oddball tunes that fit perfectly into the mix sound-wise. There's a lot of excellent numbers on here that would otherwise be buried on so-so albums – but which sparkle like jewels in the company of so many other fine tunes. Titles include "Eden Rock" by The Fifth Avenue Band, "Down In Brazil" by Michael Franks, "Goodbye Columbus" by The Association, "Carnaval" by The Hi Los, "The Night We Flew Out Of The Window" by Fantastic Something, "I Don't Know What Time It Was" by Tony Hatch, "Magical Connection" by John Sebastian, "Buzzin Fly" by Tim Buckley, "The Mothman Samba" by Hirth Martinez, "The Song Is Ended" by Milt Jackson, and "Golden Sun Goddess" by Jesse Davis. 22 tracks in all – and all very dreamy!

The style here is very much in the legacy of Vandermark's trio work of years past, especially in association with Scandinavian players – a mix of searingly intense numbers and other more introspective ones – often performances that are focused strongly around sound textures. One CD here features a 2005 Boston show, and the other includes a concert the next day, recorded up in Montreal (some travel schedule there!). Titles include "Exit The Republic", "Drift", "But Only Almost", "False Rabbit", "On A Wire", "Looking At Dutch Stairs", "New Reference", "Ottica", and "Montage". CD

✨✧ MillenniumPieces ... CD
Sonic Past/Voiceprint (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A nice, nice, nice collection of grooves from the Millennium vaults! As y'all already must know, the group's monumental Begin was the only official album by the Millenium AS the Millennium (Boettcher, Mallory, Salisbury and co. recorded other projects together and individually) leaving a wealth of great material in unreleased, rights-controlled limbo. Decades later some of this bristling, sunshine 60s pop euphoria is FINALLY seeing the light of day. The appropriately titled Pieces is a must for fans of the group and others that came before and after such as the Mamas & Papas, the post-Pet Sounds Wilsons, the Association and others. These comparably rough Millenium nuggets sort of feel like Smiley Smile to Begin's Pet Sounds; they may not be the definitive portrait of the group's greatness, but still an essential piece of the puzzle. These tracks that have languished behind closed doors for decades are better than most sunshine pop records that WERE released. It's the kind of thing that makes us wonder how many legacies in similarly restricted circumstances will be lost forever. Includes "Prelude", "To Claudia On Thursday", "It's You", "Good People", "Once Upon A Time", "A Younger Me", "Sunshine Girl", and lots more. 21 in all! CD

A fantastic collection of work from one of the coolest, hippest female singers of the 70s and 80s – but an artist who doesn't always get her due! Leona Williams is best known for her association with Merle Haggard – both on and off stage – but she's also a wonderful talent in her own right, and the kind of song stylist we'd put right up there with our favorite few female country singers Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, and maybe Tammy Wynette! Williams hardly ever cracked the charts, but she continued to record some wonderful material over the years – nearly all of which is included in this set – a package that includes all her early recordings for Hickory, later material for Sony, and lots more other recordings too. The set's got a massive 83 tracks in all – almost a mini-box set, in the best Bear Family tradition – right down to the extensive liner notes on this overlooked talent! CD

You'll definitely recognize some of these names, but the greatness of the set comes in the way they put everything together – making musical matches we might not have expected, and creating a real sense of surprise when you hear two unlikely partners in the same space.

A classic of 70s avant spiritual jazz – issued on the tiny Sweet Earth label, which was also home to some very special records from Sun Ra and Marion Brown! Bassist David Wertman is a lot more obscure than those bigger names, but he was part of the New York loft jazz scene in those crucial mid 70s years – and had associations with Arthur Blythe, Billy Bang, Steve Reid, and other key members of the group – all heavyweights that Wertman can easily stand next to with the strength of the material on this set! The sounds here are a fantastic combination of larger ideas and more spontaneous creation – almost in an AACM mode, but a bit more spiritual overall – with David's bass at the helm of a group that includes David Swerdlove on alto and soprano sax, John Hagen on tenor and soprano, John Sprague on flutes, Greg Wall on baritone, and John Zieman on keyboards. Drummer Jay Conway really provides some great energy to keep things lively and moving – and titles include "Oh John Love Trane", "Clear Air Dancer", "Earthly Delights", and "Relations".
