Elephant's MemoryElephant's Memory (1969 – Buddah) ... LP
Buddah, 1969. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $39.99
A pretty wild set from Elephants Memory – one that's as trippy as you'd guess from the group's image on the cover – and equally collaborative too! There's a strong mix of male and female vocals here – over guitar and rhythms that move effortlessly between blues rock and psych – all with a pretty loose, freewheeling sense of production – but enough tightness to make some of the chorus moments snap out nicely! Wes Farrell produced, but seems to really let the band do their thing – and in addition to songs written by group members Stan Bronstein, Michal Shapiro, and Richard Sussman – there also seems to be some song contributions from Tony Visconti too. Titles include "Hot Dog Man", "Talkin A Walk", "RIP", "Jungle Gym At The Zoo", "Don't Put Me On Trial No More", "Crossroads Of The Stepping Stones", "Band Of Love", and "Brief Encounter".

Sly JohnsonMic Buddah ... CD
Heavenly Sweetness (France), 2015. Used ... $4.99
That's Sly Johnson – not Syl Johnson, the Chicago soul singer – but this Johnson's definitely got an approach that lives up to the classic soul style of the cover! The music's a wonderful mix of deep soul vocals and contemporary production that owes a fair bit to hip hop as well – the kind of cool, crisp sound we're used to hearing from the American underground – but which comes across equally well here on a set recorded in Paris! There's definitely a few rhymes on the set, but Sly's approach is to sing instead of speak on most numbers – over heavy beats, nicely crispy rhythms, and some sweet wider washes of soulful sounds! The set features guest instrumentation from Erik Truffaz and Magic Malik – but Johnson's clearly the star of the set, and shines wonderfully on tunes that include "Magique", "All The Time", "Les Fleurs Du Mal", "Music", "Wet", "Good Morning", "Simply Beautiful", "Womenarium", and "Nasty Girl".

An excellent set that's filled with some of the best material you can find by this jazzy diva. The set includes 15 tracks from her early Buddah recordings – albums that are still probably our favorite work by her. Titles include "Loving You – Losing You", "One Thing On My Mind", "Sweet Music", "Living Inside Your Love", "Be Careful (How You Treat My Love)", "Beautiful Man Of Mine", and the fantastic "Children Of The World".

Buddah, 1973. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
Early genius from drummer Norman Connors – a sensational bit of righteous soul jazz – right up there with the best work on Strata East and Black Jazz from the time! The sound here is full, soulful, and spiritual – as Connors heads up a large ensemble that includes luminaries like Herbie Hancock, Eddie Henderson, Gary Bartz, Carlos Garnett, Buster Williams, and Dee Dee Bridgewater – all working together in a formation that's free spirited, yet tightly unified – often at a level that's even stronger than their own recordings! The album mixes a few longer tracks with shorter numbers – in a mode that reminds us a lot of Garnett's classic Black Love album – and titles include "Song For Rosa", "Black Lightnin", "Dark Of Light", "Butterfly Dreams", and "Laughter".

AirtoSeeds On The Ground – The Natural Sounds Of Airto (blue vinyl pressing) ... LP
Buddah/Real Gone, 1971. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $30.99 32.99
Easily one of the greatest records that Brazilian percussionist Airto ever recorded – a stunning blend roots and jazzy currents, and a set that follows strongly off his work in the group Quarteto Novo! The set's got contributions from one of his key partners in that combo – reedman Hermeto Pascoal – and like Pascoal's material at this point, the whole thing is maybe one of the most perfect realizations of the musical vision that Airto was going for! There's none of the tighter, more polished sounds of his later fusion years – and this is the record that will show you just why his arrival on the American scene made such big waves at the time. Flora Purim also sings on the record – and titles include "Andei", "On Sonho", Papo Furado", and "O Galho da Rosiera". LP, Vinyl record album

Pierre BacheletBlack & White In Color – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Buddah, 1977. Very Good+ ... $1.99
Although composed by 70s sex-soundtrack genius Pierre Bachelet, this one's mostly a batch of jaunty, jagged little themes, a bit like Nino Rota's work for Fellini, with lots of similar touches. There's one striking number, though – "Ivory Coast Drums" – which has a weird back/forth rhythm approach, a bit of echo on the drums, and a melodic progression that makes the track a nice dark little number. Bachelet sings vocals on the French version of the "Black & White" theme – and other tracks include "The Letter", "The Battle", "Crossing The Rhine", "Fresnoy's Theme", and "La Chanson Des Souliers".

Norman ConnorsSaturday Night Special (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Buddah/FTG, 1975. New Copy ... $10.99 16.98
A brilliant mix of soul and jazz from the legendary Norman Connors – a key album in breaking Norman out back in the 70s – and a record that's still pretty darn perfect all these many years later! You can hear Connors' deep roots throughout the set – but they're often used towards a more sophisticated soul agenda, too – blending in elements of jazz vocals and modern R&B, at a level that so many other artists would copy in years to come – but which Norman virtually helped invent with this landmark album! There's some mellow moments on the record that are every bit as wonderful as the funky ones – some laidback tracks that feature sublime vocals from Jean Carn, pre-Philly – and which also really introduce the soul side of Michael Henderson – an artist who most folks had previously known as a bass player. Connors mixes the funky and the smooth at a level that rivals the best Roy Ayers material of the same time – and titles include the massive hit "Valentine Love" – plus "Saturday Night Special", "Kwasi", "Dindi", "Akia", "Skin Diver", and a sweet version of "Maiden Voyage"! CD features bonus 7" mixes of "Saturday Night Special" and "Valentine Love". CD

✨✧ Norman ConnorsYou Are My Starship ... LP
Buddah, 1976. Very Good ... $5.99
A masterpiece of mellow soul and jazzy grooves from the groundbreaking Norman Connors – an album that sails to the stars on a sweet blend of mellow moments and more upbeat tracks too! The record features some crucial vocal talents from Michael Henderson and Phyllis Hyman – both relative newcomers here, and making a great transition from jazz to soul with Connors help – hitting this amazing territory that would inform countless other artists in years to come – but never be done again this well! The instrumentation is wonderful, too – schooled in the jazz roots of Connors' music – and featuring Gary Bartz on alto, and both Hubert Eaves and Onaje Allen Gumbs on keyboards. Titles include the seminal title cut "You Are My Starship" – one of the best late night slowjams ever – plus remakes of "The Creator Has a Master Plan" and "Betcha By Golly Wow" – and the cuts "So Much Love", "Just Imagine", and "We Both Need Each Other".

DelfonicsDelfonics ... CD
Buddah/Philly Groove, 1970. Used ... $6.99
The third album in an amazing early run from The Delfonics – the kind of work that set a whole new standard for group soul in the 70s! A number of the tracks here had already risen to fame before the album's release as singles – and these are mixed with some additional tracks that are woven together in a near-perfect symphony of sound! The mighty Thom Bell arranged most of the numbers here – save for 2 by Anthony Dorsey – and the group's heavenly harmonies are in amazing form on both mellow ballads and a few more righteous numbers. Titles include "Didn't I Blow Your Mind This Time", "Funny Feeling", "Over & Over", "Baby I Love You", "When You Get Right Down To It", "Delfonics Theme", "Trying To Make A Fool Of Me", "I Gave To You", "Down Is Up Up Is Down", and "Think About Me".

DelfonicsLa La Means I Love You ... CD
Buddah/Philly Groove/Ring Of Stars (Italy), 1968. Used ... $6.99
A landmark album in harmony soul – one of those records that pushed the genre to a whole new level! The Delfonics emerge fully formed here as one of the most compelling groups of their time – a tremendous trio with a really unique approach to soul music – one that's heartfelt and heartbreaking, but never too sweet to be cloying or poppy – definitely just the right groove to keep things hip while also cracking the charts! The album's their first full collaboration with legendary producer Thom Bell – and it's got a sound that's summed up perfectly in the quintessential cut "La La Means I Love You" – and which is followed through beautifully on a batch of tracks that includes "Losing You", "Can You Remember", "You're Gone", "I'm Sorry", and "Break Your Promise". This pressing has 22 tracks in all. CD

DelfonicsSound Of Sexy Soul ... CD
Buddah/Philly Groove, 1969. Used ... $4.99
A groundbreaking album of vocal group soul – right from the first note! The record kicks off with the sublime "Ready Or Not, Here I Come" – which starts with fierce stepping strings that are actually funky, then soars into some of the best harmonies the group ever put to record, superbly arranged by the great Thom Bell, who also wrote the track. As the album progresses, the sound expands further to encompass many elements that would become the blueprint for vocal groups over the next few years – like twangy electric sitar, cascading orchestrations, and pinched lead vocals that take a lot more chances than most group singers had been taking for years! There's still a bit of a 60s soul sound to some of the cuts, but the album's a watershed – not only for Thom Bell and the group, but for harmony soul as well! Titles include "Ready Or Not Here I Come", "My New Love", "Loving Him", "With These Hands", "Somebody Loves You", and "Everytime I See My Baby". CD

EbonysSing About Life ... CD
Buddah/P&C, 1976. New Copy ... $6.99 15.98
The Ebonys sing about life, and a host of other groovy topics too – in this lost soul treasure from the 70s! The set is one of only two albums ever cut by The Ebonys – a consistently great group from the 70s, as is testified by their constant popularity in our racks! The quartet has a 3 man/1 woman harmony sound that's very hip – often applied to righteous themes worked out in a heavy soul mode, and which sounds just as great on the ballads as it does dancefloor numbers. This second album's got an even sharper edge than their debut – thanks to production and arrangements from Tony Camillo – who gives the album some great undercurrents of funk, and a slightly righteous style that reminds us of some of Norman Whitfield's best studio work of the time. Vocals are wonderful – with really great harmonies that balance out beautifully – in ways that are much more unified than other girl/guy soul groups. Titles include "Neighborhood Gossip", "Mr Me, Mrs You", "One Thing On My Mind", "Sing About Life", and "A Love of Your Own". CD

5th DimensionPortrait ... LP

A wonderful record by The 5th Dimension – hip, sophisticated, and one that shows that they had a depth that went beyond simple soul harmonies! The proof of this is the group's killer track "One Less Bell To Answer", one of the frankest songs about adult love and breakup to ever crack the charts in the 60s – but there's plenty of other gems, including "Puppet Man", "Feelin Alright", "A Love Like Ours", "Save The Country", "Dimension 5ive", and the extended medley of "The Declaration/Change Is Gonna Come/People Got To Be Free". Arrangements are by producer Bones Howe, with the team of Bob Alcivar and Bill Holman – both of whom helped to shape the group's sound nicely in the post-Jimmy Webb years. LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy Webb is already at the helm on this one – arranging and conducting the group with his heavenly 60s pop approach – all produced to perfection by the amazing Bones Howe! The record soars to the top with the hit "Up Up & Away", and features many other great numbers –lesser-known, but really wonderful gems like "California My Way", "Another Day Another Heartache", "Pattern People", "Rosecrans Blvd", "Learn How To Fly", and the group's great cover of Tim Hardin's "Misty Roses"!

Two tracks feature Osibisa as the backing group – working in an upbeat, funky mode that's plenty great – and a bit different than the usual Buddah disco groove – and most of the other tracks were arranged and produced by Betty Wright, but in ways that are more upbeat and clubby than most of Wright's own work of the time. Titles include "Don't Run For Cover", "Don't Lose The Feeling", "Can't You Feel It", "These Boots Are Made For Walking", "Under My Thumb", and "Ain't Givin Up No Love". LP, Vinyl record album

Buddah, 1976. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
After hitting big as a singer on the soundtrack for Claudine, Gladys Knight finally got her chance in front of the camera for Pipe Dreams – a record that featured her both as the star on film and on the soundtrack! The styles here are a bit more wider-ranging than the usual 70s soundtrack of this type – a bit of ballad soul, mellow numbers, and more – arranged by Dominic Frontiere and Michael Masser in styles that are a bit like some of Knight's own albums of the time. We like especially the jazzy vocalesey number "Pot Of Jazz", a nice number that deserves further discovery on a compilation – and other cuts include "Find A Way", "Follow My Dreams", "So Sad The Song", and "Alaskan Pipeline".

Buddah, 1972. Very Good ... $16.99
The sensuous soul gem from Barbara Mason – a sweetly soulful groover all the way – and one of her strongest records! Give Me Your Love gets our love for a bunch of reasons, but especially for the title track – which is reworking of Curtis Mayfield's "Give Me Your Love" – which is arranged by Curtis himself. Vince Montana does most of the other arrangements, and you can see traces of Barbara's move into clubland later in the decade – but this one's more about lush, deeply soulful sounds. Leon Huff is on piano and keys, the tunes have incredible backing vocals with Barbara Ingram, Bunny Sigler, Kenny Gamble and others in the chorus – but this is Barbara's show all the way – emoting soulful magic out front! Titles include "Let Me In Your Life", "Bed and Board", "Who Will You Hurt Next", and "You Can Be With the One You Don't Love". LP, Vinyl record album

A pivotal album for Barbara Mason – one in which she takes the little girl soul sound of earlier albums, and turns it into a sophisticated range of emotions that foreshadows later Philly work by singers like Jean Carn and Phyllis Hyman! Despite the Philly arrangements by Ronnie Baker, Norman Harris, and Vince Montana, there's actually a bit of a southern twinge to the record – an aspect that works nicely on the ballad cuts, which have kind of an Ann Sexton or Shirley Brown feel to them – sophisticated female soul at its best, and a real change overall for Barbara. Features the uptempo extended political cut "World War Three", plus "All in Love is Fair", "Bed and Board", "Caught in The Middle", "I Miss You Gordon", and "Me and Mr. Jones", her cover of the Billy Paul hit, and a nice version too!

Gary McFarland & Peter SmithButterscotch Rum ... LP
Buddah, Late 60s. Sealed Gatefold ... $16.99
Very cool stuff – and a very strange record for Gary McFarland! The album features tracks that are a lot more vocal-oriented than his earlier work – but the same great sense of wild arrangements and strange subtle genius is still firmly in place. McFarland, as much as any idiosyncratic song craftsman of the era , had an expert way of layering intricate instrumentation in a way that was always loose and in service of the vocals. This record is a fine example that talent, and a lovingly groovy and strange batch of tunes, too! Vocals are handled mostly by Peter Smith, but McFarland also joins in on a number of tracks. True genius pop – on a par with the best 60s Nilsson albums, or some particularly great moments from Spanky & Our Gang. Titles include "Poor Daniel", "Dance With Me", "Straight Arrow", "Salvation Army Rags", "Rain On The Ocean" and "All My Better Days". LP, Vinyl record album

Buddah/Wounded Bird, 1968. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Melanie's a folkie at heart, but one who's very open to new ideas too – as you'll hear in this surprisingly offbeat set from the late 60s! The record mixes Melanie's raspy, almost eerie vocal approach with some compelling charts from Roger Kellaway – who respects the folk impulses at the core, but also brings in some unusual inflections in the other instrumentation – that post-folk approach that was showing up in records by Leonard Cohen and others of the singer/songwriter generation. The difference is subtle, but very striking – and very different than the way the set would have been recorded a few years previously. Titles include "Christopher Robin", co-written with AA Milne – plus "In The Hour", "I'm Back In Town", "Bobo's Party", "Close To It All", "Merry Christmas", and "I Really Loved Harold". CD

Biff RoseBiff Rose ... LP
Buddah, 1970. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Beautifully somber work from Biff Rose – material that's quite a bit different than his more freewheeling records on Tetragrammatron, and a lot more serious than his later joke-filled live album on Buddah! This set's got a personal, dark sort of sound that's somewhere in the territory of Randy Newman – bits of strings lurking in the background behind Biff's fragile, personal vocals – filling in the spaces quietly, and with a nice sort of sadness that underscores the gentle wit and visionary views of the songs. Rose previously showed signs of songwriting this strong on his earlier records, but it really comes to the forefront here – with a sensitivity that's really amazing, and a personality that really sets the record apart from most of Biff's contemporaries. Arrangements are by Al Gorgoni and Michael Leonard – who really help to set the tone – and titles include "Love Song", "African Lullaby/Little Monk", "The Captain", "The Promise", "Diane", "All The Fondest Wishes", "I'll Walk Away", "Nothing To Gain", and "Passing Parade".

Biff's talking here as much, if not more than, he's singing – and the audience at The Bitter End is clearly very much enjoying the whole experience – exploding with laughter at Biff's interjections, and really urging him onward to new tangents. Plus, there's clearly some editing done here – in a way that only further makes the whole thing seem a bit crazy – but in a good way, very Rose-esque! Titles include "Astrology", "I Get High On Resentment", "Well I'm Goin Downtown", "I'm Losing My Race Against Me", and "Me You & Jesus". LP, Vinyl record album

Totally great – and a record you probably know nothing about! The album's one of the greatest ever to come out of the Hotlanta scene of the 70s – a tight batch of funk tracks with a heck of a lot of guitar. The set was produced by Tommy Stewart, of "Bump and Hustle" fame – and it's got an unusual style that's equally appealing to fans of funk, and fans of clubbier music – lots of tight playing, hard riffing, and longer grooves that soar along with impeccable grace. The whole thing's almost like the classic Wood Brass & Steel album – but with some rougher edges that make it even better! Includes the great tracks "Vine City" and "Messin Around", both of which are very long funk tracks, plus shorter cuts that are just as funky, like "Down Underground", "Freddie's Alive and Well", and "Buttermilk Bottom". Don't pass this up, it's a funky monster classic! LP, Vinyl record album

Buddah, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $14.99
An early international success for Italian maestro Armando Trovajoli – the very groovy soundtrack to Operazione San Gennaro – also issued here in the states as The Treasure Of San Gennaro! The soundtrack is a really great mix of modes – as half the tracks are groovy, swinging, and mod – while the other half have a more Italian comedy sort of style, one that borrows trademark Mediterranean touches, but uses them sparingly, without any sort of hoke at all. Instrumentation includes some lively mandolin and flute on these Italian-styled numbers – and some cooler organ, keyboards, and jazzier bits on the groovier tracks. I Marc 4 also had a hand in some of the instrumentation – and titles include "Treasure Of San Gennaro", "Love For Two", "Poor Boy Jack", "Maggie's Theme", "The Miracle", "Esacpe", and "Treasure Of San Gennaro".

An overlooked set of mellow numbers from bassist Buster Williams – a lost gem that's got a very different feel than some of his earlier work in the 70s, but which is equally soulful! The set's got Buster playing bass over larger arrangements arranged by Kenny Barron and Onaje Allen Gumbs – a blend of soul jazz, strings, and some light wordless vocals from time to time – drifting out over the instrumentation with a sound that's sweetly soulful. Williams acoustic bass is in the lead on all numbers, and on some of the best cuts he plays piccolo bass in a plucked mode – sounding a bit like Ron Carter on some of his 70s sets. Other players include Kenny Barron on acoustic piano, Hubert Laws on flute, Eddie Henderson on trumpet, Hank Crawford on alto sax, and Onaje Allen Gumbs on electric piano. Titles include the funky title cut "Dreams Come True", plus "When The Sky Is Clear", "Seascape", "So Falls The Past", and a cover of "Betcha By Golly Wow". CD

The record is a perfect blending of the styles of soul that were running through the east coast underground of the early 70s – with some elements of the burgeoning club scene on the more uptempo numbers, and a sweet warm vocal style on the album's super-strong mellow cuts. Vernon Bullock arranged, produced, and wrote most of the songs with Bobby – and the record takes the best elements of Vernon's own music, and pushes it to the next level. Titles include "Deeper & Deeper", "Here Is Where The Love Is", "I'll Take Good Care Of You", "Hey, Girl (Tell Me)", "All I Need (I've Got)", "You Make Me Feel Good All Over", "Let Me (Put Love Back In Your Life)" and "I'll Be Your Rainbow".

✨✧ Black IvoryFeel It (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Buddah/P&C, 1975. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Sweet mellow soul meets the burgeoning east coast club soul sound – and the results are incredible! Leroy Burgess arranged the rhythms and Patrick Adams arranged the strings and horns – both masterfully – but it's this warm, emotionally resonant and supremely soulful Black Ivory vocal arrangements that shoot this one so high into the stratosphere. Feel It was the first album in a few years from the group, marking a bit of transition in styles from the earlier, more ballad-heavy approach, but it carries that genuinely emotional vibe really, really well. An album we've always dug, but love even more after revisiting it – we think you'll love it, too! Includes the vocal and instrumental versions of "Daily News", plus the cuts "Warm Inside", "Feel It", "Will We Ever Come Together", "You're What's Been Missing From My Life", "Love, Won't You Stay" and "All In A Day's Love".

Buddah, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An early 70s set from Captain Beefheart & The Magic Band – but one that was actually recorded in the mid 60s – a bit before the classic Trout Mask Replica! The set shows Beefheart and the band at their most unbridled – really jamming with bluesy roots, but into the very trippy outer limits – with the Captain on vocals, harmonica, and "first-time musette" – plus Alex St Claire Snoufer and Antennae Jimmy Simmons on guitars, Jerry Handley on bass, and Drumbo on drums. Titles include "Tarotplane", "Kandy Korn", "25th Century Quaker", and "Mirror Man". LP, Vinyl record album

Buddah/Right Stuff, 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Smooth mellow soul by Michael Henderson – taking up where he left off with his work with Norman Connors, and proving that he was an even better vocalist than guitarist. The overall sound of this one's perhaps a bit slicker than his first 2 albums on Buddah – but there's still some strong modern soul moments, and good production from the Sigma Sound Studios. The best cuts have a smooth mid-tempo groove – not unlike the modern soul coming out of Philly at the time, and perfectly suited to Henderson's jazzy sensibilities. Titles include "Take Me I'm Yours", "Whisper In My Ear", "Am I Special", "One To One", and "In The Night-Time". CD

Buddah/Right Stuff, 1980. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A soaring standout from Michael Henderson – proof that his move from jazz bassist to lead soul star was a great one! The album's got a tight groove that's right on the money – a style that's rooted in funky jazz, yet delivered with some straight soulful lyrics too – balancing things out perfectly for an audience that Henderson never would have hoped to reach a few years before! The overall format is very much in the style of the Norman Connors blend of jazz and funk – where Henderson got his start as a singer – and the vocals are nicely mixed with some great instrumental lines, too. Titles include "Reach Out For Me", "Wide Receiver", "I Don't Need Nobody Else", "Prove It", and "Ask The Lonely". CD

✨✧ Steve KuhnSteve Kuhn ... LP
Buddah, 1971. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An incredibly inventive album from pianist Steve Kuhn – one that takes his earlier modern style, and fuses it with a warmer sort mode for the 70s! The approach is quite unique – in that Kuhn's core trio style is augmented both by additional percussion from Airto, plus occasional string quartet backing – for a sound that's fresh and different on each new tune! Some tracks feature Fender Rhodes, but most are acoustic – and Steve even sings a bit at one point, showing his newly discovered talent for penning a creative lyric. Our favorites are the groovers "The Baby (aka Saharan)" and "Time To Go (aka Tomorrow's Son)" – and the album also features a great version of "Pearlie's Swine (aka The Zoo)". Other tracks include "The Drinking Song", "The Meaning Of Love", and "Silver". LP, Vinyl record album

2.13.61/Buddah, 1980/1981. Used ... Out Of Stock
Ferocious, darkness-tinged postpunk from The Birthday Party! The caterwauling and howling fervor here is uber-influential to a lot darker indie/noise rock to come later in the decade. The band known by many for being Nick Cave's launching pad, but deserves many more props for the uncompromising genius they churned out in their time! Honking sax and churning organ suggest a diseased take on old blues & R&B, but the raucous energy and manic, frighteningly spat poetry is wholly unlike anything else at the time. Includes "Zoo Music Girl", "Cry", "Caper", "Nick The Stripper", "King Ink", "A Dead Song", "Yard" and more. CD

The record features four different sides of the singer's talents – her formative years, her hits, her interpretations of other folks' songs, and a "wonderland" side of imaginative material – which includes some surprising message-oriented tracks! Instrumentation is great – often fuller orchestrations used gently next to Melanie's raspy vocals and acoustic guitar – and titles include "Lay Down", "What Have They Done To My Song Ma", "I Really Loved Harold", "Johnny Boy", "Ruby Tuesday", "I'm Back In Town", "Any Boy", "Nickel Song", "Sign On The Window", "Christopher Robin", "Psychotherapy", "Leftover Wine", and "I Don't Eat Animals".

An excellent bit of tripped-out jazz rock from this obscure combo – somewhat in the spirit of the bigger jazz-influenced groups of the time, but with an edge that's rougher, which makes for some nice funky undercurrents on the best numbers! The group's got a lineup that includes saxes, piano, trumpet, and flute – plus some nicely crackling drums that really jump-start the best tracks with a heck of a lot of energy – and there's almost a blue-eyed soul component on the vocals, giving the album a deeper feel than you might expect. Bill Durso arranged, composed, and handles lead vocals – and titles include "I'm On My Way", "I'm A Nobody", "African Sunshine", "2069: A Spaced Oddity", "Miss Goodbody", and "I Hear You Talkin". CD

✨✧ AirtoFree/Identity/Promises Of The Sun (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Arista/BGO (UK), 1972/1975/1976. New Copy 2 CDs ... $14.99
A trio of albums from percussionist Airto – with bonus tracks too! First up is Free – one of the coolest, grooviest albums you'll ever hear from the legendary percussionist Airto – a set that mixes his own Brazilian roots with the electric genius of 70s CTI – all with stunning results! Airto's in the lead – and blows some beautiful wood flute lines alongside percussion – but the album also features killer contributions from Joe Farrell on soprano sax, Hubert Laws on flute, Keith Jarrett on piano, and Chick Corea on Fender Rhodes – as well as a hip bit of vocals from Flora Purim as well! There's some added horns at parts – but the arrangements are relatively spare and subtle – so that most tracks have a core organic quality, very similar to Airto's work on Buddah/Cobblestone, but given a bit more of a CTI twist. Most tunes are quite long and free-flowing – and titles include "Lucky Southern", "Flora's Song", "Creek (Arroio)", and "Return To Forever". Identity is a soaring set of grooves from one of the world's greatest percussionists – a standout set as a leader from Airto, and a key set in his wonderful run of work from the 70s! The album's still got the loose, free feel of Airto's earliest work, and isn't nearly as crossover-oriented as some of the Flora Purim sets from the time – still strongly in a rootsy, earthy sort of vibe – and produced with a very respectful sound by Herbie Hancock. Herbie plays some Arp on the record, and Wayne Shorter brings in some soprano sax too – but the core elements of the album are Airto's range of percussion instruments, keyboards and piano from Egberto Gismonti, drums from Roberto, trombone from Raul DeSouza, and a bit of vocals from Flora. Titles include "Flora On My Mind", "Cafe", "The Magicians", "Tales From Home", "Identity", and "Encounter". Promises Of The Sun is a record that departs nicely from earlier work, yet still keeps all the best elements intact! Airto's percussion work is firmly at the core of the set – giving it a nice acoustic base to work from, while also adding in touches of electric guitar by Toninho Horta, bass by Novelli, and keyboards from Hugo Fattoruso. The groove is a wonderful blend of the acoustic and electric, organic and synthetic – and is often crafted in a majestic vibe that seems to be inspired by the work of Milton Nascimento from the early 70s. Tracks include "Circo Marimbondo", "Zuei", "Candango", "Ruas Do Recife", "Georgiana", and "La De Casa". CD features bonus tracks "Creek (alt version)", "So Tender", and "Jequie". CD

Montuno, 1988. Used ... $14.99
One of the greatest Airto records ever – a really overlooked record cut for the mostly-Latin Montuno label in the 80s! The album's quite spare, and almost more in a Latin mode at times – given the harder percussion on the set, and the firey recording style given to the set by Montuno – but it also echoes some of the great spare styles that Airto used in his first American recordings, too – the sessions he cut for Cobblestone/Buddah right at the start of the 70s. Airto plays a range of percussion instruments, and Flora's on the set adding in some vocals – and the record also features great keyboards from Jorge Dalto, whose sound really ties thigns together nicely. Includes the classic "Samba De Flora", plus "Yahna Amina", "El Fiasco", "Dedos", "La Puerta", "Parana", and "Latin Woman". CD

A real stormer from Round Trip – a group whose roots go back to the legendary Sins Of Satan album on Buddah, and who also work here with great production from Al Perkins – in a style that's a bit like his music with One Way! We're not sure if "round trip" was an answer to One Way's name – but whatever the case, the group's a great part of the Perker corner of the universe at the time – and really share his wonderfully warm way with a groove! Oliver Cheatham's in the group at this point – and his vocals really help deepen their sound, especially on some of the mellower cuts, which stand as a real surprise for this sort of record – and give the whole thing a much richer vibe than you might expect. Titles include "Woman", "Nothing Wrong With Dancing", "Not In The Cards", "Let's Go Out Tonite", "Lost Inside Of You", and "Higher Consciousness". CD

A really incredible performance from Ornette Coleman – recorded in Italy in 1968, and featuring a unique lineup that includes Ed Blackwell on drums, plus the dual basses of Charlie Haden and David Izenzon! The two-bass lineup gives the set an amazingly tight edge – with one player bowing the instrument, and the other playing rhythm – in a way that bounces magically over the drums of Ed Blackwell, making for a rhythmic spirit that's missing from a lot of Ornette's other work from the time! There's still a sense of sound texture and exploration here that matches some of the Blue Note late 60s recordings – but the overall feel is a bit more focused, and (dare we say it?) more rhythmically swinging! Titles include long takes on "Lonely Woman", "Monsieur Le Prince", "Forgotten Children", and "Buddah Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

No Limit/Capitol, 2000. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Snoop Dogg's last and best album for No Limit – a turn of the millennium effort that stands a a lot stronger in retrospect, and certainly signaling the coming resurgence Snoop would carrying pretty strongly in the new decade. After Death Row hit hard times and Snoop found into the No Limit camp, things didn't seem to be working so well, but inch by inch, Snoop seized more creative control and by this one, we're back to the Snoop we know and love. A bit odd looking back on it, but thankfully much of the record is produced by Dr Dre, with a few cuts from Timbaland, Jelly Roll, & Scott Storch. Includes guest spots for Nate Dogg, Eve, Lady Of Rage, Ice Cube, & KoKane, – and tracks include "Hennesey N Buddah", "Snoop Dogg (What's My Name Pt 2)", "Wrong Idea", "Set It Off", "Ready 2 Ryde", "Loosen Control", "Y'all Gone Miss Me", "Stacey Adams", and "I Can't Swim".
