Barclay James HarvestEveryone Is Everybody Else ... LP
Polydor, 1974. Very Good+ ... $2.99
A nice lean set from Barclay James Harvest – a record that gets more to the core of their sound after the larger arrangements of some of their albums for Harvest Records – in a way that also seems to bring out more of an edge in their songwriting, too! The shift is somewhat subtle, but effective – as the quartet manage to find ways to make simple guitar and keyboard lines come across with this flowing vibe that often makes the sum sound way more than its parts – especially when set to the inventive themes covered by some of the album's lyrical topics! The drums are great, too – seemingly stronger than before – and titles include "Negative Earth", "Paper Wings", "The Great 1974 Mining Disaster", "Mill Boys", "Poor Boy Blues", and "Child Of The Universe". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a lightly bent and cut corner.)

✨✧ Bobby JasparBobby Jaspar – The Barclay & Columbia Years (3LP/7" single set) ... LP
Barclay/Fresh Sound (Spain), Mid 50s. Near Mint- 3LP/7" ... Out Of Stock
Although Belgian in origin, tenorist Bobby Jaspar was a key part of the French jazz scene of the postwar years – and his playing on records like these also made him one of the standout jazz talents in Europe in the 50s! This package brings together three rare albums from Japar, plus an even more obscure 7" EP – all in a really wonderful box! First up is Jazz At St Germain – cut for Barclay Records in 1955, and featuring a quintet with Rene Utreger on piano and Sacha Distel on guitar. Distel is especially wonderful, and even though he later went on to become a teen heartthrob pop singer in France, he's an excellent guitarist with an edgey string-heavy tone that really makes the recording stand out from some of Jaspar's other sides. That, and the fact that Jaspar's playing tenor on all tracks but one (he often plays mostly flute on some albums), makes the record one of his best from the time – and titles include "Minor Drops", "Bag's Groove", "Memory Of Dick", "Night In Tunisia", and "I'll Remember April". The Columbia album is rare American work from reedman Bobby Jaspar – a player best known for his contributions to French jazz in the postwar years, but working here with a set of American players! The album was recorded in New York for French branch of Columbia Records – done in November of 1956, and pitting Jaspar with some very well-matched musicians! The date features Jaspar on tenor, flute, and clarinet – with a tightly swinging trio that includes Tommy Flanagan on piano, Knobby Totah on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums – a slightly modern combo whose work sounds especially great when Jaspar hits some hauntingly lyrical notes on flute. Titles include "Clarinescapade", "Tutti Flutti", "What's New", "Spring Is Here", "Wee Dot", and "I Won't Dance". The set also features the rare self-titled Bobby Jaspar album on Barclay – a rare late 50s album that features some of his best work of the decade on flute! The session's got Bobby playing with great backings on vibes by Fats Sadi and Michel Hausser – plus stellar drum work by Kenny Clarke, who's working the kit in really magical ways, augmented by some additional percussion by Umberto Canto. And sure, Jaspar's made some sleepy records in this format, but this set's not one of them – and bounces nicely with good energy and a really unique sound. Titles include "Le JAMF", "Speak Low", "Doxology", "Jeux De Quartes", "Chasing The Bird", and "Misterioso". Last up is a beautiful 7" EP also recorded for Columbia – featuring Eddie Costa on piano and Barry Galbraith on guitar – on "Barry's Tune" and "Minor Drop". LP, Vinyl record album
(A fantastic copy – with booklet, 7" single, and all replica inner sleeves in great shape!)

FelaTeacher Don't Teach Me Nonsense ... CD
Barclay/Mercury, 1986. Used ... $9.99
An overlooked gem from the 80s years of Fela Kuti – and a set that has the Afro Funk genius working with strong studio help from Wally Badarou! The vibe's still as fierce and frenetic as Fela's classic material – each track takes up a full side of the record, with lots of hard rhythms, long instrumental solos, and righteous lyrics – but Badarou has a way of fleshing out the sound without making things sound clunky or commercial – using the some of the subtle elements of his own records, in ways that really bring out the darkness in the tunes! These effects are subtle, but powerful – and maybe work better with Fela than any other producer in the 80s. Titles include "Teacher Don't Teach Me Nonsense" and "Look & Laugh". CD

✨✧ Fela & Africa 70Shakara/London Scene ... CD
Barclay/Universal, 1971/1972. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A real killer of an Afro Funk set – a CD that brings together 2 sparkling moments from Fela's early career! The Shakara album is a longtime classic, and features 2 extended jams – "Lady" and "Shakara" – that are both tight straight-ahead funky groovers with a nice nice sound. London Scene has a number of shorter tracks – like "Buy Africa", "Who're You", and "Fight To Finish" – that Fela recorded in London during his brief attempt to storm that city's recording scene. The tracks have a slightly different sound than usual, and feature some nice tight arrangements. 7 tracks in all! CD

✨✧ Fela & Africa 70Stalemate/Fear Not For Men ... CD
Barclay, 1977. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Killer stuff from Fela – and 2 albums we never see in the original! The Stalemate album has two hard groovers, both with vocals, and both very nicely driving all the way through. Fear Not For Man is an incredible record from Fela – a set that's maybe even darker and more moody than some of his other records from the time – but still pretty darn funky overall! Side one features the tremendous title cut "Fear Not For Man" – a strong message, especially given Fela's struggles at the time – set to these wicked drums from Tony Allen, which have strong breakbeat quality, but this darker current too – that oddly offbeat vibe that Allen would explore later on his own. There's also an excellent keyboard solo – snakey and spooky – over a brooding bassline that introduces all the other great elements on horns, played with a raw, raspy sensibility that reminds us that although so many others may copy this mode in recent years – there's still nothing like a classic Fela album! "Palm Wine Sound" is on the flipside – a cool instrumental that begins with a moody guitar passage, but then blasts open brilliantly with an amazing sax solo! CD

Nino FerrerRats & Rolls ... CD
Barclay/On Sale Music (Italy), 1970. New Copy ... $22.99
One of the coolest albums we've ever heard from French funk legend Nino Ferrer – and that's saying a lot, given how much we love his records of the 60s! Nino first started out as one of the few continental cats whose energy could match that of the funkiest soul singers in the US at the time – working in a style that clearly drew from the UK mod interpretations of American soul, but with instrumentation that was even sharper than most of those singers and groups – often more directly influenced by the James Brown Band of the late 60s! Yet here, he takes that approach even further – and soars out with grooves that have a more sophisticated flow and a really great vibe, all while still holding onto the best core currents from before – vocals that take all these great twists and turns, and organ lines that flow far past regular rhythms and really illuminate the songs in a unique way. Titles include "Play Boy Scout", "Reminiscenza", "Meglio L'Amore Che La Guerra", "La Pella Nera", "Povero CRisto", "O Mangi Questa Minestra O Salti Dalla Finestra", and "Fratelli E Cosi'Sia". CD

Lee GagnonJazzzzz ... LP
Barclay/Return To Analog (Canada), 1969. New Copy ... $16.99
One of the hippest albums ever from this Canadian reedman – a set of long, open tracks that really show Lee Gagnon taking some new directions at the end of the 60s! The record has this very spacious vibe – one that comes partly from the way the other instrumentation comes together – with these pulsating rhythms that feature this great dance between the drums of Richard Provencal and bass of Michel Donato – then laced with the completely unique guitar style of Sonny Greenwich – a player who's unlike anyone else we can think of! Gagnon blows long solos, as does trumpeter Ron Proby – who wrote most of the tracks on the set – titles that include "Ode To The Ode", "Gene Structure Ramble", "Rybo-Nucleic Rhumba", and "Skin Dance". LP, Vinyl record album
(Numbered limited edition of 500!)

Barclay/Dynamite Cuts (UK), 1975. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... Out Of Stock
A gem of an early record from Tania Maria – one in which she takes on the Jorge Ben tune "Fio Maravilha", but with funky drums that make things sound way different than the original – as do her tremendous scatting vocals, and jazzy piano she adds to the groove! "Bedeu" is fantastic too – quick-stepping and lively – kind of a 70s reworking of bossa ideas, but with all those fast vocal changes that Tania could bring to her best work! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Ronald MesquitaRonald Mesquita – Bresil 72 ... CD
Barclay/Mr Bongo (UK), 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the grooviest Brazilian albums you could ever hope to buy – and one that's not even from Brazil, either! This little gem was recorded in France in the early 70s – but it's got a swinging groove that's very similar to the work of Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66 during the 60s – upbeat, bossa-inflected, and with a strong undercurrent of jazz! Mesquita's group is a lot like Sergio's – right down to its mix of two vocalists on the lyrics – but there's a few important differences: this group's got one male and one female singer, a lot more percussion than Sergio ever used, and an overall sound that's less pop-oriented, and much harder overall! The whole album's great – tight, driving, and lively, with some incredible production – and titles include "Balanca Pema", "Dabadeia", "Aguas De Marco", "Fechado Pra Balanco", "Zanzibar", and "O Gato".

✨✧ Gillian HillsZou Bisou Bisou – Tout En Francais – The Ye Ye Years 1960 to 1965 ... CD
Barclay/Ace (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Totally groovy work from French singer Gillian Hills – an artist who was initially best known for her work in film, thanks to movies like Beat Girl or Les Liaisons Dangereuses – but one who grew to become one of the cooler singers in Parisian pop during the 60s! Gillian's work here is a great bridge between two generations of chanteuses – a bit early in the "yeh yeh" years of French pop, but still done with all the grooves and jerky rhythms of that scene – but also maybe slightly more expressive at times, in a way that has Hills bringing her acting charisma to the music! Arrangements are often nicely jazzy, but in playful 60s ways – kind of the epitome of the bright, bubbly vibe of the French pop world of the period – and since most of Hills' work from the period was issued on 7" singles and EP releases, not full albums, the music here is a lot more obscure than that of contemporaries like Sylvie Vartan or Francoise Hardy. Titles include "Tut Tut Tut", "Cha Cha Stop", "Je Partirai", "Tu Mens", "Ma Premiere Cigarette", "Un Petit Baiser", "Ne T'En Fais Pas", "C'Est Le Garcon", "Rien N'Est Change", "Maintenant Il Telephone", "Les Jolis Coeurs", "Le Paradis Pour Toit", "Qui A Su", and "Oublie".
