Cab CallowayCab Calloway (Epic) (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Epic/Pure Pleasure (UK), 1930s. New Copy (reissue)... $39.99 44.99
A great collection of work from the classic years of Cab Calloway – all material that was originally issued on 78rpm singles in the 30s, and brought together here as a full length LP during the 50s! The cover image alone is a fantastic representation of the uniqueness of Cab – but the music within is even more striking – a wonderful mix of jazz and jive, of the sort that made Calloway a key precursor to the R&B sounds to come in the postwar years! Nearly every cut's a groover, with fantastic vocals from Cab – and titles include "The Jumpin Jive", "Minnie The Moocher", "Utt Da Zay", "Geechy Joe", "Eadie Was A Lady", "Let's Take The Long Way Home", "The Ghost Of Smokey Joe", "The Honeydripper", "Miss Otis Regrets", and "Chop Chop Charlie Chan".

✨✧ Chi-LitesGreatest Hits (Epic pressing) ... CD
Brunswick/Epic, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... $5.99
Issued in 1983, but a good look back at the classic Brunswick years of this massive soul group from Chicago! The Chi-Lites are one of the best harmony acts ever to come out of the Windy City – and while at the Brunswick label during the late 60s and early 70s, leader Eugene Record forged a sound that became a virtual blueprint for the Chicago group sound of the next decade to come. The harmonies are impeccable on the record – as you probably know if you've already heard hits like "Have You Seen Her", "(For God's Sake) Give More Power To The People", "Lonely Man", "Oh Girl", "The Coldest Days Of My Life", "A Letter To Myself", and "Homely Girl".

Tyrone! Certainly one of the undisputed masters of the Chicago soul scene, with a voice that was instantly recognizable, and a style that matched raw roots with classy production. This early 80's set brings together 12 of Tyrone's classic sides for the Dakar/Brunswick label. Titles included are "Can I Change My Mind", "A Woman Needs To Be Loved", "Turn Back The Hands Of Time", "There It Is", "I Wish It Was Me", "Without You In My Life", "Is It Something You've Got", "I Had It All The Time", "Turning Point", "I'll Be Right Here", "Could I Forget You", and "Let Me Back In".

✨✧ Ahmad JamalLegendary Okeh & Epic Recordings (Piano Scene Of Ahmad Jamal/Ahmad Jamal Trio) ... CD
Epic/Legacy, Early/Mid 50s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
The long-overdue reissue of some of Ahmad Jamal's first recordings – early sides for the Okeh and Columbia labels, all tunes that would go on to have a huge influence on the use of the piano in jazz! All tracks on the set were recorded in the early 50s with Jamal's great drumless trio that featured Ray Crawford on guitar and either Eddie Calhoun or Israel Crosby on bass – the latter of whom is tremendous here, working as a player who really helped set his instrument free from its traditional role in jazz. The trio's blend of guitar, bass, and piano is completely unique – extremely inventive at both a rhythmic and melodic level, as each instrument often fills both roles equally well – dancing around with an internal groove that emerges outwardly as an especially fluid approach to the tune. If you've never heard Jamal at his early best like this, the CD's gotta be one of the best places we can think of to start – as it features 21 titles in all, all beautifully remastered with impeccable sound that goes far beyond even our original albums! Titles include "Poinciana", "Black Beauty", "Something To Remember You By", "Pavanne", "Perfida", "Rica Pulpa", "Old Devil Moon", "Autumn Leaves", "Ahmad's Blues", and "Aki & Ukthay". CD

✨✧ Melba MooreMelba (Epic) ... LP
Epic/CBS, 1978. Very Good+ ... $5.99
Melba Moore gets some great help here from the Philly soul duo of McFadden & Whitehead – whose soaring styles proves to be a perfect fit for her amazing voice! Melba had cut some great work before this set, but here things really seem to come together – her amazing range, her ability to be expressive without going over the top, and her maturing role as a soul singer – which would take her to great territory in years to come! There's almost an indie soul vibe to the record at times – never too overtly commercial, and sophisticated but not hitting you over the head either – on titles that include "You Stepped Into My Life", "Happy", "Pick Me Up I'll Dance", "There's No Other Like You", "Together Forever", and "It's Hard Not To Like You".

Mother's FinestMother's Finest (Epic) ... LP
Epic, 1976. Very Good+ ... $7.99
One of the hardest, heaviest soul groups of the 70s – so much so that their music often has a fair bit of rockish touches too – especially in the guitars, which are nice and fuzzy! Lead singer Joyce Kennedy is a killer throughout – almost rivaling Nona Hendryx for unbridled energy and raw power – and the rest of the group provide lots of vocal support too – as well as some plenty heavy drums, bass, and guitar! Things really cook on titles that include "Rain", "Fire", "Fly With Me", "Dontcha Wanna Love Me", and ironically-titled "Niggizz Can't Sang Rock & Roll". LP, Vinyl record album

TeaseTease (Epic) ... LP
Epic, 1986. Near Mint- ... $5.99 7.99
Lean, mid 80s pop soul and funk from Tease – funky and nicely thumping work from a group that features singer and songwriter Kipper Jones! Kipper would go on to bigger and brighter prospects as a hit songwriter for other artists, but, both of Tease's self-titled sets in the 80s – this one for Epic, and an earlier effort for RCA – are both unjustly slept and and stand up pretty strongly with better remembered R&B albums from the period. Some of the album reminds us of the funkier pop soul sounds coming out of Minneapolis in the mid 80s, though Tease came together from the west coast scene at the time – with beats, keys, synth, bass and soulful vocals driving it. Nice stuff that's well worth checking out! Includes "The Note", "Better Wild (Than Mild)", "Firestarter", "Body Heat", "Total Control", "Soft Music", "Baby Be Mine" and "I Wish You Were Here".

Kamasi WashingtonEpic (3CD set) ... CD
Brainfeeder, 2015. Used 3 CDs ... $12.99
A modern day spiritual jazz treasure – completely wonderful all the way through, and a set you might well file proudly next to your classics from John Coltrane and Pharoah Sanders! The record's as epic as it promises in the title – a three volume journey in jazz, headed by tenorist Kamai Washington, who emerges here as a tremendous leader, a hell of a writer, and a rich jazz talent in every sense of the word – carefully steering a group of musicians through work that's searing, searching, and driven with a very cosmic vibe! Tunes are often modal, and never step too far outside, but always push the boundaries – and the instrumentation is a shifting mix of keyboards, piano, trombone, trumpet, bass, drums, and percussion – plus some vocal performances from Dwight Trible and Patrice Quinn. You might know Kamasi from his work with Flying Lotus and Thundercat – the latter of whom plays bass on this set – but the album's very much his own, and very much jazz all the way through. The kind of record we're mighty proud to be offering – with tracks that include "Askim", "The Next Step", "Rhythm Changes", "Miss Understanding", "Leroy & Lanisha", "Re Run", "Seven Prayers", "Malcolm's Theme", and "The Message".

✨✧ Ray BryantRay Bryant Trio (Epic) ... LP
Epic, Mid 50s. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first full album from the great Ray Bryant – recorded shortly after his famous Epic Records session with Betty Carter! The album's got Ray grooving in a hard early soul jazz mode – working in a trio with either Kenny Clarke or Osie Johnson on drums, and Wyatt Reuther on bass – at a level that still shows some influence from other pianists, but already with that unique hard-left style that would make Bryant a big favorite in short years to come. Candido joins in on congas on 2 of the album's best tracks – a hard grooving take on "Night In Tunisia", plus Ray's classic "Cubano Chant", a dancing Latin groover that went onto become an oft-recorded Latin Jazz standard – and other titles include "Pawn Ticket", "Philadelphia Bound", and "Off Shore". LP, Vinyl record album

ArgentArgent ... LP
Epic, 1969. Very Good ... $4.99
Rod Argent's project immediately after the breakup of the Zombies! There's plenty of Zombie-like ideas here – particularly those floating around the Odyssey and Oracle album, but they're also done without the dreamy pop style of Colin Blunstone's vocals, which makes for a much harder sound overall. Added into that the guitar of Russ Ballard, which really kicks into the tunes nicely, and you've got some great rock and roll work – written with a pop sensibility, but played with a razor-sharp edge that's pretty hard hitting. Titles include "Like Honey", "Liar", "Schoolgirl", "Bring You Joy", "Stepping Stone", and more. LP, Vinyl record album

Dave Bailey2 Feet In The Gutter ... LP
Epic, 1961. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99
Hardbop albums don't get any better than this – and although drummer Dave Bailey only recorded for a brief stretch as a leader, this session's one that shows that he was a heck of a force to contend with! The record's got an intensity that easily rivals the best by Art Blakey over at Blue Note during the early 60s – but Dave's also got a slightly looser groove too – a bit more sense of humanity, and one that allows for really organic interplay between the players. There's a slight soul jazz undercurrent – especially in the piano lines of Billy Gardner – and other players in the quintet include Bill Hardman on trumpet, Frank Haynes on tenor, and Ben Tucker on bass. The group wails on an early version of Tucker's classic "Comin' Home Baby", plus other great originals like "Coffee Walk", "Lady Iris B", and "Two Feet In the Gutter". A old favorite on the south side of Chicago! LP, Vinyl record album

Dave Bailey SextetGetting' Into Somethin' ... LP
Epic, Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $7.99
Heavy duty hardbop – one of three amazing Epic Records sessions cut by drummer Dave Bailey! Dave didn't ever cut many sessions as a leader – but when he did, they really cooked hard – with a quality level and sharpness of vision that easily rivals the best on Blue Note or Prestige Records at the time! In fact, this album would have been right at home on either imprint – a smoking session of soulful hardbop, with very long songs that allow plenty of room for solos by players who include Charlie Rouse on tenor, Clark Terry on trumpet, Curtis Fuller on trombone, and Horace Parlan on piano – who are all in the group with Dave, alongside bassist Peck Morrison. There's a nicely unbridled feel to the whole set – a real "something extra" that's always made the album a treasure – and titles include the side-long 17 minute "Blues For JP", plus "Slop Jah", "Little Old Mongoose", and "Evad Smurd".

As the title implies, the album's a set of jazz tracks based around the score for the film Doctor Doolittle – basically all the nice music written for the movie by Leslie Bricusse, without any of the silly lyrics by Anthony Newley! The group features Gordon Beck on acoustic piano, with backing by Kenny Baldock on bass and Jackie Dougan on drums – and the whole thing swings a lot more than you might expect for a record of such origins – making the set one of Beck's best outings from the time! Titles include "Talk To The Animals", "Doctor Dolittle", "When I Look In Your Eyes", "After Today", "My Friend The Doctor", and "At The Crossroads". LP, Vinyl record album

Classic 30s work from trumpeter Bunny Berigan – served up here in a great LP package that showcases his talents on the horn! There's a warmth and raspy charm to these sides that instantly shows why Berigan was a standout player at the time – an artist who could hit the hard notes with the frenzy of any of his competitors, but also an entertainer who was willing to step back and personalize (and vocalize) things when needed. Players on the tunes include many who would go onto lead their own groups – Artie Shaw, Jack Teagarden, Claude Thornhill, and others – and titles include "I Can't Get Started With You", "Solo Hop", "Dixieland Shuffle", "It's Been So Long", "Let Yourself Go", "If I Had My Way", "I'd Rather Lead A Band", and "A Melody From The Sky".

Lynn BlessingSunset Painter (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Epic/Big Pink (South Korea), Late 60s. New Copy ... $18.99 22.99
One of the only albums ever issued by vibist Lynn Blessing – a player best known for his LA session work in the 60s, and who's stepping out here in a slightly psychedelic approach to jazz! The style's a bit like some of Emil Richard's best work of the time – warmly chromatic vibes, but touched with elements that definitely show some of the changes in the late 60s scene – bits of rock, jazz, and country filtered into the album's instrumental groove – with steel guitar from Sneaky Pete Kleinow, plus additional guitar and drums. There's a nicely open, flowing energy to most tracks – looser than a Verve or Impulse album of this type, and with some nice modal elements on some of the best tracks. Paul Horn produced, and titles include "Sunset Painter", "Anacalypsis", "From Deep Within For Lynn", "Pinball Wizard", "Emerald River", "Child Of The Universe", "Cosmic Cowboy", and "Where There Is Grass".

The third solo album by Colin Blunstone – the magic-voiced singer who was lead vocalist of the Zombies, and went on to cut some god-like solo work in the early 70s! This album's a bit less sublime than Colin's first two – with tracks that veer a bit more towards the soft rock sound of the 70s, with some compressed AOR touches in place of the floating instrumentation of earlier albums – but it still sounds mighty nice to our ears, as Colin's voice is always a treat, and the record has a irrepressible charm in its optimistic presentation of some of the material. Essentially, if you dig Colin lots, you'll still want this one – as it's got more than a few nice moments – and is more of an evolution of his solo work than a divergence from it. Titles include "Setting Yourself Up", "Brother Lover", "Shadow Of A Doubt", "It's Magical", "You Who Are Lonely", "Beginning", and "Keep The Curtains Closed Today". LP, Vinyl record album

Epic, 1971. Near Mint- ... $49.99
Amazing solo work from ex-Zombie Colin Blunstone – his first album after parting ways with his former group – and one of our favorite albums of all time! Blunstone's vocals were already amazing in The Zombies – especially near the end – but this set takes things even further, by blending his sublime lyrics with spare arrangements that often just feature simple string passages and warm piano parts – subtle accompaniment that leaves Colin strongly in the lead! The songs are wonderful – penned to recall the changes and issues of the year after the parting of the group – with plenty of help from old buddies Rod Argent and Chris White too. There's never been another record like this again, and there never will be – one of the true treasures of the greatest generation of music! Titles include "Let Me Come Closer To You", "I Can't Live Without You", "Smokey Day", and "Say You Don't Mind" – plus a fantastic cover of "Misty Roses", and the more rocking "She Loves The Way They Love Her".

ChaseChase ... LP
Epic, 1971. Very Good+ ... $5.99
The debut album from Chase – one of the hippest jazz rock combos of the 70s! The self-titled Chase album first burned onto the market in 1971 – and it's a great distillation of a groove that was bubbling around in various other segments at the time – some of the tighter big band rhythms of the late 60s, as you might find in the work of Maynard Ferguson or Woody Herman – mixed with the hipper rhythms from the rockish underground, particularly in the work of Blood Sweat & Tears or Chicago. Chase is a fair bit jazzier than both of those groups – as they often put the horns more upfront than the vocals – although most numbers do have some sort of vocals as well. Instrumentation is heavy on trumpets – which come together in blasting, blaring groove, even despite the smaller size of the combo – and Phil Porter lays down some great keyboard lines that really help some of the best tracks cook nicely. Titles include "Handbags & Gladrags", "Livin In Heat", "Open Up Wide", "Hello Groceries", "Boys & Girls Together", and "Invitation To A River". LP, Vinyl record album

The album is one of the greatest, most iconic live rock records of its era – in which the to that point under-appreciated Cheap Trick (in the US at least – as you can hear the wild screams, they had the love elsewhere) midwestern powerpop progenitors FINALLY broke through and cemented their legend!

"Chocolate Jam" is a groover with lots of bass on the bottom, plenty of vamping horns, and mixed male/female vocals calling off the tune in a party sort of way. "This Time" is more of a straight ahead groove – snapping along in a sweet disco mode, with the vocals trading off nicely on the lyrics! 12-inch, Vinyl record

A funky fusion classic from the 70s – totally great work from Chocolate Jam Company, a hip little group headed up by percussionist Leon Ndugu Chancler! The core sound is soul, but there's plenty of fusion touches as well – thanks to a great lineup of players that includes Oscar Brashear on trumpet, George Duke on keyboards, David T Walker on guitar, and even Dorothy Ashby on harp! Chancler sings lead vocals on most cuts – but he's also joined by Virginia Ayers and Leo Mille on some cuts too – making for a really well-rounded sound that's easily one of the best jazz-into-soul sessions like this from the 70s – almost topping the more famous work from folks like Lenny White or Mtume! Titles include "Don't Leave Me Now Stay With Me", "Feeling", "This Time", "Looking Glass", and the extended "Suite Chocolate". CD

Epic/BGO (UK), 1984/1985/1986. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99 22.98
A trio of funky electric albums from Stanley Clarke's mid 80s R&B years – 1984's Time Exposure, ''85's Find Out and '86's Hideaway – in a 2CD set! Time Exposure has a lot of 80s electro funk in the mix, particularly Clarke's impeccable bass lines, which are heavy throughout. Titles include "Play The Bass '10", "Heaven Sent You", "Speedball", "Future Shock" and the great title track. Find Out follows somewhat similar territory, an 80s synth funky set with a few surprising twists – including an electro/funk/old school rap cover of "Born In The USA"! Other tracks include "Find Out", "The Sky's The Limit", "Stereotypica" and "Psychedelic". Hideaway makes a move towards more delicate synth soul for Clarke – who assembles an impressive guest list that includes Stanley Jordan, Herbie Hancock and Stewart Copeland. Titles include a cover of Stevie Wonder's "Overjoyed", plus "My Love, Her Inspiration", "Where Do We Go", "Old Friends" and "When It's Cold Outside". CD

DonovanGift From A Flower To A Garden (2LP Box Set) ... LP
Epic, 1967. Near Mint- 2LP Box Set ... $24.99
One of the trippiest albums ever from Donovan, as you might guess from the title – a double-length gem that's filled with wonderfully groovy tunes! The set was cut during Donovan's killer years with producer Mickie Most in the late 60s – and it's got an instrumental feel that's even more laidback than some of his others from the time – mostly hip small combo instrumentation that features organ from Mike O'Neil, flute from Harold McNair, and vibes from Mike Carr – all done with some hip jazzy touches underneath Donovan's lead acoustic guitar – a folk-funk blend that's totally great, and which clearly set the scene for countless other imitations to come! Nobody can touch Donovan's charm at this point, though – and the album's a treasure through and through – filled with great tunes that include "Wear Your Love Like Heaven", "Skip A Long Sam", "Sun", "Little Boy In Corduroy", "Oh Gosh", "Under The Greenwood Tree", "Song Of The Naturalist's Wife", "Lay Of The Last Tinker", "The Lullaby Of Spring", "The Magpie", "Epistle To Derroll", "The Land Of Doesn't Have To Be", and "Mad John's Escape".

Herb Ellis/Laurindo Almeida/Johnny GrayThree Guitars In Bossa Nova Time ... CD
Epic/Wounded Bird, 1963. New Copy ... $6.99 11.98
A really really wonderful little record – one that's far more than you might guess from it's slightly gimmicky title! The session's clearly done in a mode to resonate with the Charlie Byrd or Stan Getz bossa work of the early 60s, but it's also got a slightly offbeat quality that makes it really unique – a sound that partly comes from the use of three guitars by three relatively different players, and from the way that the tunes themselves are put together. There's almost a jam session feel at times here – with the guitars coming together in a tension of different voices, hardly the sort of thing you'd hear in a regular bossa album. But equally great is the tenor sax work of Bob Enevoldsen – which comes in with a sharper edge and a bit more soul than his 50s sides – creating a deeper quality to the tunes that's really great. Percussion is by a trio that includes Milt Holland, Bob Neel, and Chico Guerrero – and Donn Trenner plays piano and Bob Bertaux is on bass. Titles include "I Told Ya I Love Ya Now Get Out", "Sweet Dreams", "Bossa Nova #2", "Bossa Nova Samba", and "Leave It To Me". CD

Merle HaggardKern River/Amber Waves Of Grain ... CD
Epic/BGO (UK), 1985. New Copy ... $8.99 19.99
Two mid-80s sets from Merle Haggard – back to back on a single CD! First up is Kern River – a real classic from the Epic Records years of Merle Haggard – a set that has both the singer and the label realizing that one of the strongest suits of Hag's style at the time was his maturity – which is brought to light here in a great set of blue-tinged tunes filled with themes of loss and looking back! Grady Martin co-produced the set with Merle, and there's an easygoing vibe here that never pushes Haggard's vocals too much – and instead really revels in the gentler tones and more personal aspects of his voice. Titles include the classic "Kern River" – plus "Old Flames Can't Hold A Candle To You", "There Won't Be Another Now", "I Wonder Where I'll Find You At Tonight", "You Don't Love Me Any More", and "There's Somebody Else On Your Mind". Amber Waves is a later live set from Merle Haggard – one that echoes some of the attitudes of his famous concert recordings for Capitol, but which also has some nicely different qualities too! As with those albums, Merle's definitely pitching some of the ideas and politics towards a more populist audience – but he's also reveling in some of the more mature modes of his Epic Records years – sliding into some of the mellower tunes with the confidence that he often brought to his more uptempo early hits. Titles include "I Wish Things Were Simple Again", "Amber Waves", "American Waltz", "The Farmer's Daughter", and "Gone With The Wind" – plus cool medley cuts "Tulare Dust/Mama Tried", "The Okie From Muskogee's Comin Home/The Okie From Muskogee", and "Working Man's Blues/Always Late With Your Kisses".

This is the real deal for Screamin Jay Hawkins – a full album of his first early work for the Okeh label in the mid 50s, stuff that was recorded long before his too-gimmicky records for mainstream audiences! The sound here is hard and heavy – and pretty darn spooky too – best summed up by Hawkins' classic "I Put a Spell On You", which sets the tone here – but followed up beautifully by a batch of similar material that brings a new level of screamin' to 50s R&B! Titles include "Give Me My Boots & Saddle", "Hong Kong", "If You Are But A Dream", "You Made Me Love You", "Orange Colored Sky", "Temptation", and "I Love Paris" – and Jay's versions of the standards are almost as great as his original material!

HeatwaveToo Hot To Handle (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Epic/Big Break (UK), 1976. New Copy ... $14.99 20.99
A killer album of crossover soul from the mid 70s – one that dropped like a bomb when it hit, and gave this UK group a number of big hits in America! Keyboardist Rod Temperton wrote all the tracks on the album – and he's got keen talent for both funky numbers and ballads. If soul stations played album side specials the way that classic rock stations do, side one would be in heavy rotation – as it kicks off with the funky title cut, rolls into the hit "Boogie Nights", cuts to the sample classic "Ain't No Half Steppin" (forever made famous by Big Daddy Kane), and steps into the moody ballad "Always & Forever". It's hard to beat that lineup, but side two does a pretty good job – and includes a similar mix of titles like "Super Soul Sister", "All You Do Is Dial", and "Sho'nuff Must Be Love". CD features a good number of bonus tracks – "Turn Out The Lamplight", "Special Offer", "Slip Your Disc To This", "Boogie Nights (12" disco version)", "Ain't No Half Steppin (single version)", and "Always & Forever (single version)".

Epic, 1969. Near Mint- ... $11.99 14.99
The debut album from Dan Hicks & His Hot Licks – a brilliant little set, and quite possibly the truest realization of his subtle acoustic genius! The sound here is free from cliches that later got in the way with Hicks – and the album's a refreshing return to roots, but without any of the too-posturing modes of other groups like this from the time! Hicks keeps things real cool here – very subtle, and quite spare at times – with elements of acoustic swing, bluegrass, and country all bubbling underneath – but an overall execution that's somewhat focused and urbane. There's none of the too old-timey moments you might expect – and if anything, we're impressed at how freshly contemporary a bunch of acoustic hippies can sound here! Titles include "Slow Movin", "I Scare Myself", "Canned Music", "How Can I Miss You When You Won't Go Away", "It's Bad Grammar Baby", and "Jukie's Ball". LP, Vinyl record album

Excellent later work from Bobbie Humphrey – working here in a style that's different than her early albums for Blue Note – but still equally great! Bobbi's a bit more of a singer here, but the record still features loads of great work on flute as well – in these tight, full arrangements put together by Ralph MacDonald and William Eaton, both of whom really know their way around a groove! At some level, the shift is similar to that made by Patrice Rushen on her first few Elektra albums – a style that's more compressed than before, yet still every bit as soulful – and a great evolution for Bobbi Humphrey as an artist. The whole thing's great – and titles include "Say The Word", "Sweet n Low", "Living For The Music", "Love When I'm In Your Arms", "Year From Now", and "The Good Life". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Isley BrothersLove Songs ... CD
Epic, 1970s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Mellow Isleys galore – that great side of the group's talents in the 70s! Although the Isley Brothers were always known for hitting a funky groove when they could, they were almost even better at mellower cuts – laidback numbers that let the group really work things over carefully, and open up with a soulful vibe that few of their contemporaries could match! Most of these tunes still have the guitar you'd know from the funky cuts – but it's played in a stretched-out way that's totally great – slinking in between the vocals and rhythms in a really wonderful way, almost making for an undercurrent of funk at points. Titles include "Hello It's Me", "Voyage To Atlantis", "For The Love Of You (parts 1 & 2)", "Groove With You", "Sensuality (parts 1 & 2)", "Footsteps In The Dark (parts 1 & 2)", "Between The Sheets", "I Once Had Your Love", "Hello It's Me", and "You Are Love".

Epic, 1979/1982. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
Two slices of classico Michael – particularly the surprising choice for a B-side to the massive "Beat It", the long, funky Off The Wall nugget "Working Day & Night", which is lesser known in comparison, but it's as great a cut as anything Michael has ever recorded. 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Mid 90s Mixed Masters pressing in a Mixed Masters sleeve.)

Michael JacksonHistory – Past, Present & Future Book 1 ... CD
Epic, 1980s/1995. Used 2 CDs ... $6.99
Well, it's HIS story, actually – a bit overblown in concept, and probably execution – but a record that's got some nice nuggets underneath, if you know where to look. The first half is the backstory – gems from Michael's earlier years on Epic – including "Remember The Time", "The Girl Is Mine", "Bad", "Rock With You", "The Way You Make Me Feel", "She's Out Of My Life", "Don't Stop Til You Get Enough", and "Wanna Be Startin Something". The second half is "HIStory Continues" – newer material that might have made a decent album on its own, but which probably pales slightly in comparison with the classics. Tracks include the "Scream" duet with Janet – plus "You Are Not Alone", "Childhood", "2 Bad", "Tabloid Junkie", "This Time Around", "Come Together", and "They Don't Care About Us". CD

Michael JacksonOff The Wall ... LP
Epic, 1979. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $39.99 49.99
This 1979 solo album by Michael is a killer batch of soul grooves – one of his best moments ever, and a crowning cap to a stellar 70s run – both as a younger solo act, and with the whole Jackson family! Quincy Jones produced, and the album's got a funky undercurrent that's really stunning – clubby, yet plenty darn soulful, with a wickedly sly groove that others would try to copy for years, but never fully match. Titles include seminal groovers like "Rock With You", "Don't Stop Til You Get Enough", "Working Day And Night", "Girlfriend", "Off The Wall", "Burn This Disco Out" and more. Amazing amazing amazing work from the to-be-coronated King Of Pop! LP, Vinyl record album
(Original UK pressing with orange labels.)

✨✧ Michael JacksonThriller ... LP
Epic, 1982. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
Arguably the last true moment of genius in Michael Jackson's career – a record that sold a bazillion copies around the world – and for plenty good reason! Michael's still working here with Quincy Jones – in territory that steps nicely from the Off The Wall groove, into territory that's somewhat more poppy, but still quite soulful overall. And yes, the success of the album meant that cuts like "Billie Jean", "Thriller", and "Beat It" got plenty of play – thanks to both heavy radio and video rotation – but a few decades later, there's still a tremendous amount of depth here – on great cuts like "Human Nature", "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin", and "PYT" – which all hold up nicely! LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. A beautiful copy!)
Also available Thriller ... LP 19.99
