Ashford & SimpsonCapitol Gold – Best Of Ashford & Simpson ... CD
Capitol, 1980s. Used ... $2.99
A wonderful selection of work by the team of Nick Ashford and Valerie Simpson – a batch of tunes that focuses on their tight 80s work for Capitol Records! The pair may be best known from this era for their mega hit "Solid" – but Nick and Valerie changed the face of duet soul forever long before that sweet, if ubiqitous number– the boy/girl soul sound into a strident, mature, tightly-grooving mode! This set splits the difference between uptempo, sophisticated soul and a more delicate, ballad mode. Titles include "It Seems To Hang On", "Found A Cure", "Street Corner", "Love It Away", "I'll Take The Whole World On", "High-Rise", "Solid", "Outta The World", "Count Your Blessings", "Nobody Walks In LA", "Cookies And Cake", "I'll Be There For You" and more.

Serge ChaloffBlue Serge (Capitol Jazz Classics) ... LP
Capitol, 1956. Near Mint- ... $7.99
Classic Capitol jazz session, and one that pairs Boston baritone player Serge Chaloff with an LA rhythm section that has Sonny Clark on piano, Leroy Vinnegar on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on drums. The album's a perfect example of Chaloff's legendary (and short-lived) talents on the baritone – and listening to it, you'll hear how Chaloff was one of the few players ever to get such a rich tone and fluid style out of the instrument. Titles include "How About You?", "Handful Of Stars", "The Goof & I", "Susie's Blues", and "All The Things You Are". LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy GiuffreNew Forms In Jazz – The Complete Capitol Recordings 1954 to1955 (Jimmy Giuffre/Tangents In Jazz) ... CD
Capitol/Fresh Sound (Spain), 1954/1955. Used ... $9.99
Seminal west coast modern work from Jimmy Giuffre – both of his mid 50s classics for Capitol Records, back to back on one CD! The self-titled album Jimmy Giuffre is from 1954 – and was incredible work from one of the freshest new voices in jazz at the time! The album takes tracks from an original 10" LP session, and adds in a few more – so that you've got Jimmy playing tenor, clarinet, or baritone – in groups that include west coast cool players like Jack Sheldon, Bud Shank, Shelly Manne, Russ Freeman, and Ralph Pena. The writing's quite original, and Giuffre's already got that angular quality that will allow him to leap even further over the next few years. Titles include "Nutty Pine", "Wrought Of Iron", "Do It", "All For You", and "Sultana" – as well as the classic "Four Brothers". On Tangents In Jazz, Giuffre begins his experiments in jazz without a "non-pulsating beat" –, jazz without snapping cymbal, walking bass, or pounding piano to provide a steady pulse! The group on the LP includes Ralph Pena on bass, Artie Anton on drums, and Jack Sheldon on trumpet – and the four musicians play together in beautifully fragile little lines, which arc up and back, and come together with a sense of grace and surprise. Tracks include "The Leprechaun", "Scintilla Three", "Rhetoric", and "Chirpin Time". 20 tracks in all – most original compositions by Giuffre! CD

✨✧ Bill HolmanBill Holman's Great Big Band (Capitol) ... LP
Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $7.99
A great big band indeed – a session from 1960 that has Bill Holman still sitting nicely at the top of the west coast large group format from the 50s! As with previous dates of this nature, Holman's got a way around the charts that few can match – a way of swinging the whole ensemble strongly, yet never in ways that are cloying, commercial, or cliched. All the right players find a space for expression – and the lineup includes Richie Kamuca and Bill Perkins on tenor sax, Frank Rosolino on trombone, and Conte Candoli on trumpet – all players who really sparkle nicely when they step out from the larger group. Titles include "Stereoso", "Shadrack", "Quickstep", "Aura", "The Moon Is Blue", "June Is Busting Out All Over", and "Spinuet". LP, Vinyl record album

Dean MartinReturn To Me – The Capitol Years Part 2 (8CD set) ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), Late 50s/Early 60s. Used 8CDs ... $78.99
A fantastic package of work that spans all of Dean's later years at Capitol Records – a time when he was really hitting his creative stride, breaking up with Jerry Lewis, and emerging as a multi-talented performer through his countless live appearances, film work, and other notable contributions to late 50s popular culture. All of this is documented brilliantly in the set's beautiful booklet – a 12" hardcover book with biographical information, an essay, discographical notes, and countless photos and images of Dean in his prime! Dean Martin has been woefully overlooked on the reissue market over the years, which makes this set even fresher than you might think – as it includes a huge amount of stuff that's never been reissued before, including tunes from radio shows, and film soundtracks like Ocean's Eleven, Pardners, Hollywood Or Bust, Ten Thousand Bedrooms, and The Young Lions. We totally love this one – and although we've been Dino fanatics for years, opening this one up is like finding a vault full of rare work we've never heard before! CD

✨✧ Johnny OtisCapitol Years ... LP
Capitol, 1950s. Near Mint- 2LP ... $23.99
During his long musical career, Johnny Otis recorded for more labels than most folks have pants – but his 50s work at Capitol (and the related Dig label) remains some of his best, and it's very nicely collected on this 24 track set! The Capitol years gave Johnny some polish – a good thing, because it helped him hone his songwriting ideas, tighten up the playing, and get a bit more jump in his grooves. The result was a sound that was a perfect blend of the bourgeoning LA R&B scene and the classic American approach to songsmithery that was Capitol's best strength during the 50s. Titles include "Voodoo Woman", "Vine Street Swing", "Three Girls Named Molly", "Castin My Spell", "Telephone Baby", "Crazy Country Hop", "Cold Turkey", "I'm With You", and the classic "Willie & The Hand Jive".

Lou RawlsLou Rawls Live! (Capitol) ... LP
Capitol, 1966. Very Good ... $2.99
One of the greatest albums to ever sum up the genius of Lou Rawls in the 60s – a brilliant live set put together with the talents of David Axelrod! The record perfectly captures the easy-going soul of Rawls in the early years – a natural approach to his music that made him one of the best singers of his genre at the time, and which comes out especially strong in the album's upbeat monologues, which are often delivered by Lou with musical accompaniment, then leap strongly into the lyrics of a tune. Backing is by a small jazzy combo that includes Herb Ellis on guitar and the great rhythm team of Jimmy Bond on bass and Earl Palmer on drums – both of whom bring a nice little groove to most of the album's numbers. Titles include "Street Corner Hustler's Blues/World Of Trouble", "Southside Blues/Tobacco Road", "The Shadow of Your Smile", "In The Evening When The Sun Goes Down", "I Got It Bad And That Ain't Good", and "The Girl From Ipanema".

✨✧ Annie Cohen Solal/Paul Goldberger/Robert GottliebNew York Mid Century – Post War Capitol Of Culture 1945 to 1965 (hardcover) ... Book
Thames & Hudson (UK), 2014. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A stunningly vivid portrait of New York in the postwar years – a time when the city's already-strong hold on American culture was taken to its apex – as the city became home to some of the most important artists, actors, writers, and creative forces of the generation! The book is filled with amazing photographs – hundreds of images, in both black and white and color, laid out alongside equally rich text, in three large sections that look at the visual arts, the performing arts, and architecture and design. Modern visual artists get especially strong placement in the book, as does the groundbreaking architecture in the city during the 50s – but there's also some great sections on dance, theater, and nightlife too – and the whole thing's more than large enough to cover everything at a reasonably strong level. The layout and design of the book are great – and the choice of images is superb – and the whole thing is super-heavy, hardcover, and a whopping 400 pages in all. Book

Capitol, 1940s. Used ... Out Of Stock
During the 1940s, Capitol Records recorded some of the best female vocal records of the decade – blending swing with jazz and bits of emerging R&B, to cut sides that still sound pretty darn great today, and which are often used to define our sense of the classic American girl singer. This nicely-packaged set of 25 tracks features many of the label's biggest and best hits from their first decade – including "It Had To Be You" and "Doctor Lawyer Indian Chief" by Betty Hutton; "It's A Good Day", "Golden Earrings", "I Don't Know Enough About You", and "Everybody Loves Somebody" by Peggy Lee; "Long Ago And Far Away", "Day By Day", "Serenade Of The Bells", and "Some Enchanted Evening" by Jo Stafford; "Hurry On Down" by Nellie Lutcher; "I'll Walk Alone", "I Should Care", and "A Stranger In Town" by Martha Tilton; "Teardrops From My Eyes" by Helen O'Connell, "But Beautiful" by Margaret Whiting, "A Little Bird Told Me" by Blue Lu Barker, and "It's Been A Long, Long Time" by June Christy.

Always-great work from the team of Ashford & Simpson – the kind of a record that has them at the top of their game, even though they'd changed their overall sound over the years! The vibe here is more in an 80s groove mode than some of the duo's Warner albums, but they've still got an undeniable talent for a massive hook – the kind that makes even the simplest tunes really go over the top. Plus, they're just about one of the only male/female duo teams that you can hear on record and actually believe that both singers are on the same page! Titles include "Side Effect", "Experience", "It's A Rush", "High-Rise", "Still Such A Thing", "It's Much Deeper", "I'm Not That Tough", and "My Kinda Pick Me Up". CD

Dang, these guys could never miss! Even in later years, Ashford and Simpson were still going strong – working here in a wonderfully mellow style that's as soulful for the moment as their mid 70s groovers were for that time. The album's got a sweet modern style that's pretty much in the Capitol Rare sound of the time – a matured version of 70s soul, with wonderful depth and sophistication that really suits the pair well. Side two features the extended "Street Opera" suite, side one has some shorter more straightforward tunes that include "Mighty Mighty Love", "Love It Away", "Make It Work Again", and "I'll Take The Whole World On".

David AxelrodEarth Rot – A Musical Comment On The State Of The Environment (with bonus instrumentals album) ... CD
Capitol/Now Again, 1970. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98
One of the most righteous, message-oriented albums ever from David Axelrod – and the third in his legendary trilogy of instrumental sets for Capitol Records! Earth Rot moves even past the modes of Songs Of Innocence and Songs Of Experience – to offer up a chilling message on the environment, circa 1970 – with beautiful arrangements in the best Axelrod tradition – performed by a large group of jazz players who mixes vibes, guitars, and off-kilter reeds – augmented by a group of singers who perform some of the lyrics of the set, most of which are adapted from the Old Testament and from Navajo legends! The record's broken into two long suites – "The Warnings" and "The Signs" – and the whole thing blends together in a spacey, other-worldly mix of heavy arrangements and trippy grooves! Amazing package – includes a full bonus LP of instrumental versions, appearing here for the first time ever – plus a huge 32 page booklet of notes and images! CD

David AxelrodSong Of Innocence ... CD
Capitol/Now Again, 1968. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98
One of a handful of amazing albums recorded by David Axelrod towards the end of the 60s – really stunning, genre-breaking music that was years ahead of its time – and which has only finally been getting its due in more recent decades! At the time of the record, Axelrod was a house producer at Capitol Records – where he'd created big hits for Lou Rawls and Cannonball Adderley – and he'd also been experimenting a bit with studio techniques for other rock groups. But here, the Axe brings all his experience into play – then sends things soaring to the skies – with music based on the work of poet William Blake, but delivered in this totally groovy west coast 60s mode. The core of the instrumentation features funky drums from Earl Palmer and bass from Carole Kaye – both of whom really keep things rock-solid amidst the larger mix of strings and instruments directed by the great Don Randi – who himself is pretty darn wonderful too. The music has nice snatches of fuzz and organ throughout – jazzy moments, funky passages, and lots more too – served up on tunes that include much-sampled song "Holy Thursday" – plus "The Smile", "A Dream", "Song Of Innocence", and "The Mental Traveler". William Blake never sounded so funky! CD

Capitol/Now Again, 1969. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98
One of the greatest albums ever by studio genius David Axelrod! The album's one of Axelrod's first on his own – cut for Capitol Records at a time when he was working with some of the label's biggest selling soul acts – like Cannonball Adderley and Lou Rawls – turning their already-successful sounds into super-hit material by adding some nice funky touches, and excellent baroque production. This album lets Axelrod fully explore his talents for larger studio arrangements, and complex yet soulful instrumentation. The record is subtitled "an anthology of awareness after birth, based on the 18th century poems of William Blake" – and it features incredible arrangements conducted by Don Randi, played by a host of excellent LA jazz and studio players. The overall sound is spacey and dark, with nice touches of funk, and plenty of cool instrumental passages that have been sampled over the years by hip hoppers and other producers.

Syd BarrettOpel (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Harvest/Capitol, Late 60s. Used ... $6.99
A Syd Barrett treasure trove – and an essential compilation of unreleased work that's a much-needed companion to Barrett's classic albums for EMI! The material here is all from the years 1968 to 1970 – tracks recorded before, during, and around the sessions that later became The Madcap Laughs and Barrett – but which often also show a wider-ranging side of Syd's talents, especially on the few demo recordings – which offer an even more personal glimpse of the artist trying to find his way. Instrumentation is a bit more acoustic than on Barrett's full albums, but even the acoustic guitar is played with these dark tones that have the same sinister quality as the chords he brought to Pink Floyd – maybe even more striking here without any fuzz, as they resonate alongside Syd's offbeat lyrics. Titles include "Rats", "Golden Hair", "Opel", "Clowns & Jugglers", "Birdie Hop", "Let's Spilt", and "Swan Lee". Features a number of bonus alternate takes – added to the original core lineup of 14 tracks from the 1988 release of Opel. CD

Les BaxterRitual of the Savage ... LP
Capitol, 1952. Very Good ... $18.99
A masterpiece of exotica! Ritual Of The Savage is one of those must-have albums from the 50s – a super-huge record upon its initial release, and an album that pushed the genre of exotica far further than most others at the time! Before this record, most attempts at exotica were simple instrumental pop, colored with slight worldly instrumentation – or too-dreamy recordings, putting over a sleepy version of life on the islands. Enter Les Baxter, who had an amazing ear for sounds, rhythms, and arrangements – one that was the first to record this sort of music in a way that was sonically evocative, and could stand on its own without other referents. Instrumentation is often conventional, but used oddly here – and Baxter's original compositions are all pretty darn great – playful without being goofy, and nicely mixing Latin and Pacific rhythms at the bottom. Titles include "Busy Port", "The Ritual", "Coronation", "Jungle Jalopy", and Les' original version of "Quiet Village". Heck, even the cover is gorgeous – with a brilliant blue illustration of some guy putting the moves on a woman amidst spooky tribal relics! LP, Vinyl record album
(Turquoise label pressing. Cover has a split spine, a split top seam, and some aging.)

Les Baxter with Bas ShevaPassions (10-inch Box Set) ... LP
Capitol, 1954. Very Good+ 10-inch Box Set ... $39.99
A really obscure box set recording – done as Les Baxter's classic exploitation of "a woman's passions", using vocalist Bas Sheva in the role of the tormented female! Sheva's got a bold, evocative style that's not unlike Yma Sumac – and she sings here wordlessly, as an added instrument on top of Baxter's orchestrations – playing the role of the inner psyche of woman, on titles that include "Lust", "Terror", "Joy", "Hate", "Ecstasy", and "Despair"! The whole thing's a mini docu-drama in sound – beautifully recorded in a flurry of red, blue, and other chromatic hues – not as exotic as Baxter's other work from the 50s, but equally great as a modern sonic psychoanalytic text! The package is great, with a nice little box, a great booklet explaining the psychology of the album, and a nice little 10" LP nestled inside the whole thing! LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the booklet, which has some light creases. Box has a filled in peeled spot on front. Label has a piece of clear tape.)

BB & Q BandAll Night Long ... LP
Capitol, 1982. Very Good ... $5.99
A great album of bass-heavy 80s groove tracks – and the second release by the oft-overlooked BB&Q Band! The record mixes up some nice keyboards with a spacey early breakdance sound, and they sound great over the group's tight rhythm, and surprisingly soulful vocals. The band was one of the great lost treasures of the early 80s – and they've got way more to offer than just their big hit. Titles include "All Night Long", "Imagination", "Desire", "Hanging Out", "Hard To Get Around", and "Children Of the Night". LP, Vinyl record album

Beach BoysBeach Boys' Party ... LP
Capitol, 1965. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $33.99
A really cool little album from the Beach Boys – a set that definitely takes its "party" title seriously, in a way that has the group singing in a somewhat live and spontaneous manner! There's sort of a "live in studio" feel here – with production that's less polished than on other records, and instrumentation that's heavy on acoustic guitar and percussion – almost like the group are hanging out at the beach, riffing on some of their favorite tunes. The album features the group's famous take on "Barbara Ann" – plus versions of a number of other 60s classics, like "The Times They Are A Changin", "Papa Oom Mow Mow", "Mountain Of Love", "You've Got To Hide Your Love Away", "Devoted To You", "Alley Oop", and "I Should Have Known Better".

Beach BoysPet Sounds (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol, 1966. Used ... $3.99
One of the greatest records of all time – and don't you forget it! Despite the countless lines of type that have been written about this record, nothing does it full justice like an all-through listen – something we're reminded of every time we put this one on the turntable, which is a heck of a lot over the years! Brian Wilson busted his ass making this little gem – and the rest of the world, and the band, were never the same again – awash in harmonies that most other groups tried to match, set to themes of young loss, longing, and frustration that really mark an emotional development – not just in the Beach Boys, but in pop music in general. And although some of the tracks are ones you've heard a million times on oldies stations, they somehow resonate together much more strongly here – taking on new meaning as the smaller elements of each song come into constellation with each other – creating a complicated tapestry of feelings set to near-godlike orchestrations. Titles include "God Only Knows", "Caroline No", "Pet Sounds", "I Just Wasn't Made for These Times", "Wouldn't It Be Nice", and "You Still Believe In Me". Also features bonus tracks "Unreleased Backgrounds", "Hang On To Your Ego", and "Trombone Dixie". CD

Early work from The Beach Boys, but Brian Wilson's genius is already starting to show – tucked in between some more obviously poppy numbers that first put the group on the map! The album obviously features the big title hit, but there's some other great gems here that are much lesser known – our favorite of which is "The Lonely Sea", an incredible number filled with sadness and longing, and a real precursor to the Pet Sounds years! Other titles include "Finders Keepers", "Lana", "Farmer's Daughter", "Noble Surfer", "Stoked", "Surfin USA", "Miserlou", "Shut Down", and "Let's Go Trippin". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Beastie BoysCheck Your Head ... CD
Grand Royal/Capitol, 1993. Used ... $2.99
If Paul's Boutique was the Beasties heavily mind-blown Dust Brothers dusted psychedelic hip hop Sgt Peppers, then Check Your Head is their down and dirty back to basics raw funk run at something like Never Mind The Bollocks. Their first outing without the guidance of an outside producer, though the trio did bring in ringers like Money Mark and Mario Caldato Junior, this set's a ride into a whole other mindset, still fueled by sunny So Cal vibes and the Beasties own take on rhyme science. It's hard to imagine an album that would produce so many anthems for true heads and the Lollapalooza crowd alike, but this is it. Includes "Jimmy James", "Pass The Mic", "Gratitude", "Finger Lickin' Good", "So Whatcha Want", "Time For Livin'", "Something's Got To Give", "Groove Holmes" and "Professor Booty". CD

This may be one of the few albums to ever have Tom's name as the lead artist – and it hand-picks some of the best cuts from the instrumental albums that the Buckaroos cut for Capitol Records in the late 60s – some of which feature Buck himself on guitar, others with Don Rich on the non-steel version of the instrument! There's no vocals at all – just sweet Bakersfield country instrumentals – and tunes include "Tom's Waltz", "Seven Come Eleven", "Tom Cattin", "Steel Guitar Rag", "Bud's Bounce", "The Neosho Waltz", "March Of The McGregor", "Together Again", "Moonlight On The Desert", "Runnin Short", and "Highland Fling".

The beautiful full scale duets set from Peabo Bryson and Roberta Flack – a record that's no doubt defined by its biggest hit – but the rest is just as great! Born To Love kicks off with "Tonight I Celebrate My Love For You" – a song that's doubtlessly one of the most inescapable slow dance classics of all time – and if its ubiquity overshadows the rest of the record, that's not because it's any less excellent! Peabo's affectionate style is in top form here, and Roberta is such a perfect duet partner – with plenty of lead moments of her own. It definitely feels like a perfectly balanced partnership. The record's got some lovely slow jams on par with the aforementioned pop soul standard, plus some great ones that up the tempo a little bit. Other titles include "Blame It On Me", "Born To Love", "Heaven Above Me", "Comin' Alive", "Can We Find Love Again", "You're Looking Like Love To Me" and more. 3 bonus tracks on this Soulmusic CD version: US single version of "You're Looking Like Love To Me", plus UK 12" and 7" mixes of "Heaven Above Me".

A jazzy Latin fusion classic – and the first album by the border-crossing combo Caldera! The group featured both North and South American players – coming together in a hard-riffing approach to fusion that rivaled the best fusion combos of both the California and Brazilian scenes at the time. There's a few nice moments that really belie their more southern roots – and recall the choppy fusion of Airto, or the vocal scatting of Flora – but the set's also got a sunny west coast finish, thanks to some wonderful production from Wayne Henderson – who kicks things up in a way that the group hardly matched on later albums! Guest stars include Raul De Souza and Roberto Da Silva – and titles include the funk classic "Coastin", plus "Guanacaste", "Out Of The Blue", "El Juguete", and "Synesthesia". CD

Capitol, Late 60s. New Copy ... $13.99 14.99
A fantastic lost slice of work from Glen Campbell – recorded in the studio during the years of his big initial fame in the 60s – but never issued to the public at all! Instead, these tracks were recorded for "The King" – that is, Elvis Presley – a bit like demos of tunes that the songwriters wanted Elvis to sing – but handled by Campbell in initial readings that sometimes echo the style of Presley, sometimes have Glen bringing more of his own spirit to the songs. All the titles were written by Sid Wayne and Ben Weisman – the latter of whom gave Elvis plenty of hits in the 60s – and the album's not just a great view at a lost slice of 60s rock, but also a fantastic testament to the diversity and strength of the young Glen Campbell working in LA. Titles include "Magic Fire", "I'll Be Back", "I Got Love", "Anyone Can Play", "Spinout", "Do The Clam", "Stay Away Joe", "Love On The Rocks", "Easy Come Easy Go", "How Can You Lose What You Never Had", and "All I Needed Was The Rain" – plus a rare duet with Elvis on "We Call On Him".

Great post-Parliafunkadelicment work from George Clinton – surely the biggest hit of his albums for Capitol – especially since it features the singles "Atomic Dog" and "Loopzilla"! We'll be honest in saying that at the time this one came out, as die-hard Detroit funk fans, we remember thinking "oh gosh, George has lost it" – but from the perspective of many years later, the record sure sounds like classic P-Funk to us – really picking up where the last few Funkadelic and Parliament albums left off! The album sports a great Pedro Bell cover, features some nice work with Bootsy, includes the hits "Atomic Dog" and "Loopzilla" – and also features some lesser-known gems that include "Pot Sharing Tots", "Get Dressed", "Computer Games", and "One Fun At A Time".

Clinton's clearly more comfortable in the lead here – that new spotlight presence he adopted on the Computer Games album – but he also draws heavily on the sound of the whole ensemble, who refine their P-Funk approach with some slight 80s modes – still showing that although George influenced so many other funk acts during these years, he can still craft a groove better than anyone else! Tracks are nice and long, and filled with Clinton's strong sense of humor – and titles include "Nubian Nut", "Last Dance", "Quickie", "Stingy", "Silly Millameter", and "You Shouldn't Nuf Bit Fish".

An overlooked gem from Natalie Cole – a set that still has her working strongly with songwriter Marvin Yancy, who really helped her find her sound and style during the early years of her career! Natalie actually helped with writing a fair bit on the record herself – sometimes with Yancy, sometimes alone – and the result is a surprisingly personal batch of tunes that really show a deepening of spirit in the singer, especially in the mellower moments. Gene Barge handles the arrangements – still bringing a bit of Chicago soul roots to the record – that mix of deep and sophisticated modes that always brought out the best in Natalie.

Richard Evans and Gene Barge arranged, which probably had something to do with that, too – but Natalie truly deserves most of the credit of the strength of this set. It includes the standout groovers "La Costa" and"Annie Mae", but the whole record is really sweet – with "Lovers", "Our Love", "Be Thankful", "Just Can't Stay Away" and "Keeping A Light".

Miles DavisBirth Of The Cool ... CD
Capitol, Late 40s/Early 50s. Used ... $1.99
Legendary work from Miles Davis – large group sessions that virtually define the "cool" in cool jazz! The work's quite different from Davis' earlier bop sides with Charlie Parker – and show a distinct influence from modernists like Gerry Mulligan (who is on the recordings) and from the experiments of the Tristano school. Miles is less the leader than the creative visionary – as all players come together in a perfect blend of sound, perfectly polished, and with a very dark edge. Titles include "Jeru", "Move", "Venus De Milo", "Budo", and "Deception". CD

DaytonFeel The Music ... LP
Capitol, 1983. Very Good ... $24.99
A massively wonderful album from Dayton – an album that has the group really getting their groove together – still sticking a bit in the older funk mode from the past, but also bringing in some warmer, deeper touches to their music too! There's a solidness here that's undeniable – a balance of rhythms and instrumentation that few other soul groups of the time were hitting – topped by vocals that have a nice dose of jazz in the mix too, with the sort of sophistication you might expect to hear from some of Wayne Henderson's At Home productions. Production is nice and warm, never too cold or commercial – and titles include the group's great cut "The Sound Of Music" – not the theme from the Broadway show, but a great two-stepper that's instantly infectious – plus "Caught In The Middle", "It Must Be Love", "Promise Me", and "Lookin Up".

Liberty/Capitol, 1982. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
A wonderful remake of Sly Stone's huge hit – done in an early 80s groove kind of way, one that updates the tune with a nice little beat that could either work on a stepper's dancefloor, or a rollerskating jam. Really nice, and one of the the group's best tracks! 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ DaytonSound Of Music (European mix, album version)/Fast Lane ... 12-inch
Capitol, 1983. Very Good+ ... $49.99
"The Sound Of Music" is presented here in the original album version and the cool "European" remix – one that's got a bit of electro on the intro, then falls into a nicely syncopated midtempo groove, touched up with some warm jazzy bits that deepens the soul, and really hugs the fantastic hook of the tune! "Fast Lane" is a bit more uptempo – and really more of a pop number, but the a-side's so great, we can't complain about that! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Bob DoroughMultiplication Rock (colored vinyl pressing) (2019 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Capitol, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99
Sure, it was silly stuff when we were kids – but once De La Soul sampled "Three Is The Magic Number", this record became one of the most prized in our possession! And thanks to that hip hop reintroduction, we've really fallen in love with the music again over the years – partly because the tunes are all so groovy, and partly because we've really come to know the jazz-based work of composer Bob Dorough! At the time of this set, Dorough was coming off some great work in the 60s – his own rare recordings, music for Spanky & Our Gang, and others – all of which seems to inform these math-based tunes written for Saturday morning TV. The tunes are all pretty darn catchy, and often quite jazzy – and instrumentation often features some great electric piano nestled in alongside the vocals. Dorough sings the lion's share of the work for this album – although Grady Tate sings on two numbers, and Blossom Dearie on one more. Titles include the amazing "Three Is A Magic Number" – plus "Lucky Seven Sampson", "Little Twelve Toes", "Ready Or Not Here I Come", "I Got Six", "Naughty Number Nine", "Figure Eight", and "The Four Legged Zoo". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition multi colored vinyl pressing – in the original "Tape Box" artwork!)
