Mose AllisonMose Allison – The Complete Atlantic/Elektra Albums – 1962 to 1983 (6CD set) ... CD
Atlantic/Strawberry (UK), 1960s/1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 6CD ... $42.99 59.99
A really wonderful collection of music – work that has an already-great artist taking off into all these new directions of his own – completely reinventing himself as the jazz generations moved on, always with a really strong sense of wit and imagination! Mose Allison first emerged as a bop pianist in the 50s, but soon added a unique vocal approach that was a bit New Orleans-tinged, but with a beat jazz sensibility too – a style that was a huge influence on the UK mods in the 60s, and countless others over the years! By the time Mose hit Atlantic Records in 1962, he was already perfecting that style – then opening it up to other elements as the 60s moved on, often hitting some wilder, more unusual approaches that just kept coming through the 70s! As he shifted over to Elektra Records at the end of that decade, he stepped slightly back to more traditional jazz vocal modes – but still also kept penning his own great tunes, often with themes that maintained his unique sense of wit and vision. The box features a whopping 104 tracks on 6CDs – 12 full albums that include I Don't Worry About A Thing, Swingin Machine, Word From Mose, Wild Man Is On The Loose, Mose Alive, I've Been Doin Some Thinkin, Hello There Universe, Western Man, Mose In Your Ear, Your Mind Is On Vacation, Middle Class White Boy, and Lessons In Living.

✨✧ Donald Byrd & 125th StreetLove Has Come Around – The Elektra Anthology 1978 to 1982 ... CD
Elektra/Big Break (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99 24.99
A great chapter in the career of trumpeter Donald Byrd – his post-Blue Note work with the group 125th Street NYC – which is kind of a second chapter to the jazzy fusion style he developed at the start of the 70s! This time around, there's an equal emphasis on soul and jazz – often with some strong vocals in the lead, but also plenty of room for Donald to stretch out and serve up the kind of perfect solos he worked out with the Mizell Brothers in the years before – modes that are continued here with some great guest help from singers and musicians who include Syreeta, Isaac Hayes, Jim Gilstrap, Wah Wah Watson, and Greg Phillinganes! If you like Donald Byrd albums like Places & Spaces or Stepping Into Tomorrow, you'll find that the sound here is a continuation of that mode – taken into the leaner funk territory that would come to play in the 80s. 2CD set features almost all the best tracks from those years, including some single mixes too – and titles include "Thank You For Funking Up My Life (12" disco version)", "Marilyn", "Butterfly", "Gold The Moon White The Sun", "Sexy Dancer", "Love Has Come Around", "Loving You", "Love For Sale", "Star Trippin", "I Love You", "Midnight", "Your Love Is My Ecstasy", "Have You Heard The News", "People Suppose To Be Free", "Morning", "I'm Coming Home", "Sunning In Your Love Shine", "Everyday", "Falling", "So Much In Love", and "Forbidden Love".

Elektra, 1951/Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Lord Buckley's rare early recordings for the Vaya label in LA – groundbreaking sides that predated most comedy albums, and which also had a huge influence on the spoken word recordings of the beat generation! The tracks were recorded live, with Buckley talking in a mixture of jive and gibberish that may well have marked him as the first true hipster on record – and which also puts him in a lineage that's somewhere between Slim Gaillard and Babs Gonzales. Titles include "The Nazz", "Jonah And The Whale", "Nero", "Gettysburg Address", "Marc Antony's", and "Funeral Notation" LP, Vinyl record album

David SanbornAnything You Want – The Warner/Reprise/Elektra Years 1975 to 1999 (3CD set) ... CD
Soulmusic.com (UK), Late 70s/1980s/1990s. New Copy 3CD ... $24.99
A big overview collection of work from the key years of reedman David Sanborn – a player who certainly knew how to hit the heights with the sales of his records, but also had a surprisingly strong, rich career over the years! If you only think of Sanborn as a smooth jazz pioneer, then you'll find plenty to open up your mind here – as David first recorded as a solo act for Warner Brothers at a time when he was making key contributions to sessions for other artists, then found ways to consistently stay ahead of the fusion and electric jazz mainstream – to the point where in the later recordings here, he's almost back to basics in a really surprising way! As with other great anthology collections on this label, there's a really strong track selection – one that not only features key album tracks, but singles and even a few live cuts too – a really well-chosen batch of 46 tunes that include "Believer (12" mix)", "Love & Happiness (live)", "High Roller", "Flight", "Heba", "Short Visit", "This Masquerade", "Lesly Ann (radio)", "Smile (live)", "Infant Eyes", "Naked Moon", "Brother Ray", "Imogene", "Come To Me Nina", "Lotus Blossom (live)", "Daydreaming", "Same Girl", "Bang Bang (single)", "Summer", "I Do It For Your Love", "The Water Is Wide", "Got To Give It Up (rmx edit)", "Slam (7" version)", and "Duck Ankles".

✨✧ Grover Washington JrIn The Name Of Love – The Elektra Years 1979 to 1984 (Paradise/Winelight/Come Morning/Best Is Yet To Come/Inside Moves/bonus tracks) (5CD set) ... CD
Soulmusic.com/Elektra (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 5CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great run of music from Grover Washington Jr – five full albums, plus lots of bonus tracks too! First up is Paradise – one of those records you see so much it's easy to forget how great it is! Grover's a real genius with the sax on this record – taking a "less is more" cue from Stanley Turrentine's 70s work, and toning down his playing to an even tighter style than on the Kudu albums of earlier years, to a level of ultimate economy that really leaves us breathless. Grover hits a rarified level here that we'd only reserve for a small few – like Steely Dan or The Crusaders, both groups who teeter on the same brink, and make it work perfectly. Titles include "Asia's Theme", "Tell Me About It Now", "Feel It Comin", "Icey", and "The Answer In Your Eyes". Winelight is a smooth smooth classic from Grover Washington Jr – a set that has a classy image on the cover, and a classic groove within – a completely sublime blend of jazz, soul, and funk, all given the sort of masterful finish that you might have found on the best records by The Crusaders at the time! The difference, though, is that Washington's the lead soloist throughout – crafting some especially nice lines on his trademark soprano sax – which he used in ways that made him one of the most important mainstream jazz artists of his time – and one of the few to really open the doors of the music to folks who might not have been listening otherwise. Grover's sense of space and timing is wonderful throughout – and titles include the classic debut with Bill Withers on "Just The Two Of Us" –plus "Winelight", "Let It Flow", "In The Name Of Love", "Take Me There", and "Make Me A Memory (Sad Samba)". On Come Morning, Grover Washington blows over some great arrangements from William Eaton – full, but lean too – and with the same sort of slinky groove that always worked best for Grover back at Kudu Records! The sound is tight, but never too slick – that magically soulful approach that always made Grover a real standout from his contemporaries – one of the few cats who could smooth out jazz without ever losing its soul – thanks to lots of well-crafted lead lines on soprano sax! Titles include "East River Drive", "Jamming", "Little Black Samba", "Be Mine", and "Reaching Out". Best Is Yet To Come is a set that strongly continues the special spirit that Grover Washington brought to his music during the Elektra Records years – as one of the few artists who really found a way to move forward from the style of 70s jazz funk, but not fall into some of the smoother jazz cliches that were about to envelop his contemporaries! Part of the strength of the record lies in Grover's strongly soul-based sense of timing – allowing for just the right amount of space between the notes to remind you that you're listening to a jazz soloist first and foremost, even when a guest like Patti Labelle might step in for a bit of vocals. Titles include "Brazilian Memories", "Mixty Motions", "Can You Dig It", "I'll Be With You", "Things Are Getting Better", and "The Best Is Yet To Come". Inside Moves has Washington soaring to the skies on soprano sax – as expressive a voice on the record as any soul singer might be – and maybe even more so on the few spots that do include vocals. Jon Lucien sings a bit on the record – and if you read these pages, you know how much we love him – but Grover's still the giant here, with a sense of timing and phrasing that few of his contemporaries could ever hope to match in a setting like this. Titles include "Jet Stream", "Sassy Stew", "Dawn Song", "Inside Moves", "Watching You Watching Me", and "Secret Stew". 5CD set features 19 more bonus tracks – all the single edits of songs from the albums!

✨✧ Butterfield Blues BandOriginal Lost Elektra Sessions ... CD
Elektra/Wounded Bird, 1964. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Massive lost work from the Butterfield Blues Band – recorded in 1964, quite early in the group's career – but a set that already has them hitting hard with a really powerful sound! The recording quality and overall sound is nice and rough – a gritty groove that's more closely linked with the Chicago roots of the group than some of their later recordings – and the harmonica work of Paul Butterfield is really amazing – nicely distorted at times, almost in a fuzzy psych way – and matched by some excellent work on guitar from both Elvin Bishop and Mike Bloomfield – the latter of whom also handles Hammond and piano too. Titles include "Nut Popper 1", "Lovin Cup", "Our Love Is Driftin", "Take Me Back Baby", "Help Me", "Just To Be With You", "Everything's Gonna Be Alright", and "Goin Down Slow". CD

Joe AlbanyPortrait Of An Artist ... CD
Elektra/Wounded Bird, 1982. New Copy ... $3.99 11.98
A great portrait of an under-recorded artist – Joe Albany's last album ever, recorded for Elektra records during their early 80s run of straight jazz sides! The record's got a spare, personal quality that's similar to Albany's other late work – but it's a bit more professionally put together too – not slick or commercial, but recorded quite thoughtfully, with clearly a lot of care in getting all of Joe's charms through on the record. There's a tentativeness to his keyboard work that's great – a sort of hesitation, then quick move forward with surprising grace – balancing beautifully in ways that warm us to his music even more than before. Other players include Al Gafa on guitar, George Duvivier on bass, and Charlie Persip on drums – but the record really has a main focus on Albany's piano lines. Titles include "Ruby My Dear", "Guess I'll Hang My Tears Out To Dry", "Autumn In New York", "They Say It's Wonderful", "For The Little Guy", and "Too Late Now". CD

A mega-hit, but for good reason – as the record brought sophistication back to chart soul at the end of the 80s – proof that well-done, deeply-voiced records could still beat the schmaltz of the geri-curl generation! Anita's working here in territory that draws from the classics, but is certainly all her own – a space between jazz and soul that was hardly ever handled this well by other artists at the time. Titles include "Priceless", "Lead Me Into Love", "Giving You The Best That I Got", "Good Love", "Rules", "Good Enough", and "You Belong To Me". LP, Vinyl record album

BB & Q BandGenie (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Elektra/PTG (Netherlands), 1985. New Copy ... $11.99 19.99
The last true classic from the masters of the 80s groove genre – a post-Capitol effort for Elektra, but one that's still awash in great keyboards and snapping electro beats! Some of the jazzier sound from the past is gone here, but in its place is a leaner, cleaner sound that's still a fair bit more compelling than most work by the group's contemporaries! Nearly all tracks snap along with rhythms that are nicely placed between the street and the dancefloor – never gimmicky and never too cloying, and tightly focused enough to make the most of the hooks in the vocals. Lots of DX7 on the album, and more than a few numbers have a great sort of breakdance vibe. Tracks include "Riccochet" and "Dreamer" – both remixed by Shep Pettibone –"On The Shelf", "Genie", "Main Attraction", and "Don't Force It". CD features 6 bonus tracks – including "Dreamer (no 1 rmx)", "Main Attraction (finest rmx)", "Dreamer (Shep's dream version)", "Riccochet (Ben Liebrand mix)", and "Dreamer (Shep Pettibone long voc version)".

Brand NubianOne For All (30th anniversary edition) ... CD
Elektra/Tommy Boy, 1990. New Copy ... $17.99 19.99
One of those records that maybe snuck in a bit under the wire at the time of release – but a set that instantly went on to become a classic, and one of the greatest debuts of the early 90s! Not only is the production great – full of sophisticated samples and ways of putting them together that set a whole new standard for a generation – but Brand Nubian also found a way to take some of the energy of the Native Tongues' freshness, and turn it towards more serious themes – but all without the heavy-handedness that made some of their contemporaries date quickly. Hats off to Grand Puba, Sadat X, and Lord Jamar for such a great job right from the start – on titles that include "All For One", "Slow Down", "Drop The Bomb", "Concerto In X Minor", and 2 mixes of "Wake Up" (Stimulated Dummies mix and the penultimate reprise) – plus "Who Can Get Busy Like This Man", "Ragtime", "To The Right", "Dance To My Ministry", "Step To The Rear", "Try To Do Me", and "Dedication".

The landmark first album by Bread – a set that came from the hipper depths of the Elektra Records label at the time, and which helped set the scene for so may 70s copycat acts to come! Here, the young David Gates is working in a style that's post-folk, with some of the same Sunshine Pop-era harmonies as some of his contemporaries – nicely blending his voice with James Griffin of the group, in a way that really forges past some of the more familiar modes that harmony vocals were hitting just a few years before – the same sort of extrapolations that were being explored at the time by The Carpenters or Crosby Stills & Nash – even though fans of the latter would kill us for such a comparison! Titles include "Dismal Day", "Move Over", "Family Doctor", "Could I", "Any Way You Want Me", and "Friends & Lovers". LP, Vinyl record album

BreadManna/Lost Without Your Love ... CD
Elektra/Wounded Bird, 1971/1976. New Copy ... $11.99 14.99
Soft rock classics back to back – two full albums from Bread on a single CD! First up is Manna – a record that seems to have Bread picking up a bit more force than previous albums – coming on with a few vocal tracks that maybe seem to answer their growing soft rock status with a bit less emphasis on the "soft"! Yet that core Bread charm is still very much in place here – perfect David Gates arrangement and production, with all the sorts of mellow 70s touches that would be such a huge influence on so many others in years to come! One of the biggest illustrations of this is the mega-hit "If" – one of Gates' real classics, and done here with softly crooning vocals next to some slightly spaced-out guitar that gives the whole thing a surprisingly moody vibe. Other cuts include "Live In Your Love", "Let Your Love Go", "Be Kind To Me", "He's A Good Lad", "She Was My Lady", and "Truckin" – the last of which is not the Grateful Dead song. Lost Without Your Love is the last album in the legendary 70s run of Bread – and a set that was a bit of a comeback, given that the group had briefly disbanded before it was recorded! Yet as before, the mighty David Gates is still at the helm of the ship – penning loads of great songs alongside James Griffin, the group's other vocalist and songwriter – and giving the whole thing his classic touch in the studio, in ways that show a bit of an ear for some of the changes that were taking place in adult contemporary music in the years since the group had been started – maybe a bit more subtle drama, and a few less folksy elements than before. All the best Bread elements are still very strongly in place – and titles include "Change Of Heart", "Hooked On You", "She's The Only One", "Lost Without Your Love", "Fly Away", "Belonging", "The Chosen One", "Hold Tight", and "Today's The First Day".

Peabo Bryson in prime pop soul years – a time when he was really crossing over big, thanks to a strong ear for the mainstream market! Bryson's as positive and confident here as you might guess from the title – a master balladeer in the smoother soul mode – still with that incredible range in his voice, but also a bit more concerned with the softer, more intimate side of his vocal powers. Regina Belle duets with Peabo on the track "Without You" – which was penned by Lamont Dozier – and other titles include "Positive", "Come On Over Tonight", "I Want To Know", "Tonight", "When We Need It Bad", "Hurt", and "This Time Around".

Ho, ho, ho from Cee-Lo – and a surprisingly great holiday release from Dirty South MC turned leftfield funky soul crooner, turned TV singing contest mentor – although we really should stop being surprised by what unlikely successes Cee-Lo Green can pull off!

Del The Funky HomosapienNo Need For Alarm ... CD
Elektra/Traffic, 1993. New Copy ... $6.99
The incredible follow-up to I Wish My Brother George Was Here – and a record that was initially underappreciated, mostly because it was such a radical departure from the George – but it's one that we loved from day one and we're thrilled is getting some love all these years later! Whereas I Wish My Brother George Was Here was sort of the loopy, semi-comical cousin to the tonally heavier G-Funk sound, No Need For Alarm has a tighter, somewhat little harder hitting sound – more akin to the jazzy Hiero beats you've come to know and love! There are days when we feel like this is our favorite Del LP. Includes "Catch A Bad One", "Wack MCs", "No Need For Alarm", "Boo Boo Heads", "Worldwide", "No More Worries", "Wrong Place", "In & Out" and "Miles To Go". CD

Joao DonatoLeiliadas ... CD
Elektra (Brazil), 1986. Used ... $16.99
An overlooked gem from keyboardist Joao Donato – cut in a mid 80s stretch when he was hardly doing any recording at all! The set's almost more of a jazz record than some of Donato's previous work – recorded with a warm vibe that's right up there with the best Brazilian fusion of the time – and by that, we mean the real deal coming from Brazil – not the American variant! Donato's still got a wonderful way of handling the keys – coming up with these subtle turns of phrase and gentle colors that hold us spellbound throughout – alongside other instrumentation that includes Mauro Senise and Ze Carlos on saxes, Serginho on trombone, and Paulinho on trumpet. Joao sings just a bit at a few points, but the overall vibe is instrumental – kind of a nice extension from the mellow cuts on the Quem E Quem album. Titles include "Leila XIII", "Leila VIII", and "Leila VI (Lua Dourada)". CD

Maybe one of our favorite Doors records of all time – if only for the long Fender Rhodes solo by Ray Manzarek on the album's final track, "Riders On The Storm"! Yet the whole album is pretty darn great, too – the last to feature Jim Morrison, who would leave the planet shortly after the album was released! There's a looser, more mature feel to the whole record – still lots of the territory the group had explored on previous albums, but also maybe more relaxed in the studio – knowing when to go for a hook when needed, but also letting some of the tunes really find themselves too. Titles include the hits "Riders On The Storm", "LA Woman", and "Love Her Madly" – plus "The Changeling", "Been Down So Long", "Cars Hiss By My Window", "The WASP", "L'America", and "Hyacinth House". This massive package features a new mix of the album by engineer Bruce Botnick, plus over two hours of never-heard material from the original sessions – all packaged up in a really wonderful design!

The harmonies are great, guitar playing very focused and sharp, and the group burns their way through tracks that include "Witchy Woman", "Good Day In Hell", "New Kid In Town", "Take It Easy", "Hotel California", "Take It To The Limit", "One Of These Nights", and "Funky #49".

A mighty sweet album of steel guitar instrumentals – a special Elektra Records session that features five of the greatest talents on the instrument at the start of the 70s – both longtime stalwarts, and key up-and-comers! Sneaky Pete Kleinow joins here with Buddy Emmons, Jay Dee Maness, Red Rhodes, and Rusty Young as a fantastic quintet of string-bending talents – all working with help from a small backup combo – and each getting a turn in the lead from track to track. The differences in tone and phrasing are great, and really come through over the course of the set – which has a vibe that's much hipper than the usual country instrumental albums of the period!

Elektra/El (UK), 1967. New Copy ... $12.99 16.99
The Zodiac never sounded so spooky – and the album's one of the first in a trend that explored astrology with funky musical backings! The music for the set was put together by moogy maestro Mort Garson – then making a transition from being a straight easy arranger in the early 60s, to more of a tripped-out pop-psychedelic artist of the latter part of the decade. Garson brings a nice funky undercurrent to the set – in a style that's similar to the work of David Axelrod, but which also uses a bit more electric instrumentation. Each track features a spoken bit on a Zodiac sign – written by Jacques Wilson, and spoken by Cyrus Faryar – and the album also features some nice moog work by Paul Beaver! Titles include "Aries", "Taurus", "Cancer", "Leo", and so on! (P.S.: The label says "Must Be Played In The Dark!") CD

Electric funky Chico Hamilton! This one's an oft-overlooked gem from the end of the 70s – a batch of sweet electric fusion tunes that sounds unlike anything else we can think of by Chico – with a cool and spacey sound that feels more like work coming out of Fantasy Records at the time, or CTI years before, than mainstream jazz on a major label! The album was produced by Wayne Henderson, and has a sweetly soulful quality that's really great – adding in some backing vocals on a few tracks for a mellow, Henderson-esque soul approach – and going for some more full-on jazz grooving on other numbers. The set features lots of great guitar and keyboard work – still in the exotic rhythm progressions that you'd recognize from Chico's earlier years, but given a great 70s electric twist! Tracks include "Mysterious Maiden", "Alekasam", "Nomad", "Strut", and "Magic Fingers". LP, Vinyl record album

One of Emmylou Harris's best loved albums, and for good reason – it's a major departure from the some of the more straightforward, if neo classic country of her late 80s and earlier 90s work, taking on a more atmospheric sound with producer Daniel Lanois. Lanois deserves credit for inspiring a new direction for Emmylou, but Wrecking Ball is her show – and of all the folk, country and roots-oriented artists Lanois worked with over the years, Harris is the one with a voice big enough fill the atmosphere, and intimate enough to pull it back down to earth.

Much more of a hard rock affair than the group's third LP – kind of a return to the heavy guitars of Da Capo after the baroque beauty of Forever Changes – but a stone winner nonetheless! Arthur Lee's genius is still firmly in place, and although there's a back to basics rock feel on the record, it's still touched by the madness that haunted earlier records – and crackles with a drugged-up intensity that would still make it a hell of an album, even if it was the only one the band ever recorded!

Elektra/Rhino, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $21.99 23.98
Love's first album – a seminal bit of Sunset Strip rock, and every bit as powerful today as it was in the 60s! The style's a bit sharper-edged than the group's classic and more familiar Forever Changes set, but it's still pretty darn great – a completely fresh batch of guitar-heavy tunes that bristle with a sound that's a lot more sinister than some of the group's contemporaries. There's a few folksy or bluesy elements in the mix, but they're almost used in a way that parodies bigger acts of the time – turning the familiar into the freaky, all with a sense of power that's simply mindblowing. Titles include the group's excellent version of Burt Bacharach's "My Little Red Book", plus "Hey Joe", "Emotions", "A Message To Pretty", "Mushroom Clouds", "And More", and "Coloured Balls Falling".

One of the funkiest albums Sergio Mendes ever recorded – a monster of a record that's filled with enough dancefloor groovers to have had a big impact on the soul market in the US! There's still elements of the older Mendes modes – especially in the way the vocals float nicely through the mix – but the overall groove is polished 70s soul, with plenty of jazzy touches – similar to the modern soul generation coming up on labels like Capitol or Elektra at the time. The group delivers a landmark version of Stevie Wonder's "The Real Thing" – a killer stepper that's kept the album alive for years – and other tracks include "Why", "Love City", "Mozambique", "Love Me Tomorrow", "P-Ka-Boo", and "Peninsula".

✨✧ Sergio Mendes & Brasil '88Sergio Mendes & Brasil '88 ... LP
Elektra, 1978. Near Mint- ... $7.99
The title says "88", but the album's from 1978 – and it's one of Sergio's great sets from the 70s that mixes older Brazilian roots with sweeter American soul! The sound is really wonderful – almost more LA than Rio, but still with plenty of Brazilian elements filtered into the mix – not just in the choice of tunes, which is great, but in the freer, looser jazz styles employed with the vocals. Sergio plays some especially wonderful keyboards on the album – further enforcing a sense of jazzy warmth – and vocals are mostly by the team of Carol Rogers and Marietta Waters, singing together in that twin-female approach that Mendes used often over the years, but also with Waters stepping out solo a bit too. Musicians include both American jazz talents like Bud Shank and Frank Rosolino – plus Brazilian artists who include Nana Vasconcelos and Nelson Angelo. Titles include a great version of "Waters of March (aka Agua De Marco)" – done at a fast clip, with English lyrics, and a very nice groove that makes the cut a real dancefloor groover – and other tracks include "Bridges", "Misturada", "That's Enough For Me", "One More Lie", "Life Goes On", and "Tiro Cruzado". LP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo. Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has light wear and a small sticker in back.)

✨✧ Missy ElliottCookbook ... LP
Elektra, 2005. Near Mint- 2LP ... $39.99
A tasty plate with some stellar cuts by the one-and-only Missy Elliot – proving once again that she's one of the best generators of great hip hop singles of the past decade – with or without Timbaland! Cookbook as a whole goes down a little bit smoother than This Is Not A Test did, with some standout material manned (and wo-manned) by a bigger roster of producers. Standouts include the great Slick Rick homage "Irresistible Delicious" feat Slick Rick, plus the great Neptunes track "On & On", the single "Lose Control" feat Ciara, "Teary Eyed", "Click Clack", "Time And Time Again" and more! LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the insert. Cover has a bit of wear at the opening and marker through the barcode.)
