John BarryDeadfall ... CD
Retrograde/Film Score Monthly, 1968. Used ... $14.99
Moody magic from the great John Barry – a little-heard soundtrack for a late 60s Michael Caine thriller! Barry's working here in a style that's tense and evocative – mostly orchestral, but with solo guitar on many tracks stepping out front – setting the mood as Barry's orchestrations clatter around with the tightly-strung approach of his best work for the James Bond films! The score kicks off with a striking Shirley Bassey number called "My Love Has Two Faces" – also redone later in the film with a male vocal – and other titles include "The Meeting", "Statue Dance", "The Last Deadfall", and "Romance For Guitar & Orchestra".

United Artists, 1963. Very Good+ ... $5.99
One of John Barry's earliest scores for Bond – when his style was nice and raw, and when the Bond theme couldn't be heard enough throughout the course of the movie! Matt Munro sings the lyrics to the forgotten title hit – and other tracks include "James Bond Theme", "Tania Meets Klebb", "Guitar Lament", "Spectre Island", "Stalking", "Death Of Kerin", and "007 Takes The Lektor".

John BarryIpcress File ... LP
Decca, 1965. Near Mint- ... $19.99
One of the greatest soundtracks ever from the great John Barry – a set of tracks that echoes some of his famous modes from James Bond films, yet also has a unique quality all its own! Barry's got a strongly jazzy sensibility here – and spaces out some great instrumentation with the same sensibilities used in the equally great music for The Knack! Staff aren't listed, but there's clearly some great Brit jazz players in the lineup – given the record's key use of vibes and tenor solos – as well as this very cool slow-plucked guitar with a noisy, echoey quality. The sound is brilliant – everything you'd hope for in the best 60s soundtracks – and titles include "The Ipcress File", "Alone In Three Quarter Time", "A Man Alone", "If You're Not Clean I'll Kill You", "Goodbye Harry", and "Alone Blues".

John BarryJohn Barry Plays 007 & Other 60s Themes For Film & Television ... CD
El (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... $6.99 13.99
An excellent collection of work from the great John Barry – one that focuses on his famous contributions for the James Bond films – but also includes other soundtrack and instrumental material as well! The set begins with the John Barry Plays 007 record – a brilliant album that not only features some instrumental soundtrack themes, but also includes some great mod Barry instrumentals from the 60s – kind of a nice link to his sophisticated film music, and some of his smaller combo work! Titles include "Kinky", "Fancy Dance", "007", "From Russia With Love", "Big Shield", "Aliki", "Monkey Feathers", and "The London Theme". Next are two tracks from Elizabeth Taylor In London – "Lovers & Browning", with a recitation by Taylor – plus the jazzy instrumental "The London Waltz". Next are two tracks from Zulu – a colonial period film that starred Michael Caine – followed by 15 more groovy instrumentals that include "Tit Willow Twist", "Hit & Miss", "Easy Beat", "Beat Girl", "The Lolly Theme", "Spinnerree", "Roman Spring Of Mrs Stone", "The Sun's Hooray", and "Saturday's Child".

✨✧ John Barry/Elephant's Memory/The Groop/NilssonMidnight Cowboy ... LP
United Artists, 1969. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
A sublime soundtrack from John Barry – common, to be sure, but also a wonderfully-crafted set that goes way beyond the stereotypes of his work for the James Bond films! The record is probably best known for Nilsson's famous version of the Fred Neil tune "Everybody's Talkin" – which is great in itself – but it's Barry's own work on the title theme that we totally love. "Midnight Cowboy" is a darkly turning slowly pondering tune that will haunt us until the day we die – performed here on the original number with a sad-tinged harmonica that unites both the country of Joe Buck's roots and the sleaze of the love generation. The tune's great – and is matched here by the whimsy of "Florida Fantasy", and the Barry tracks "Fun City" and "Science Fiction". Another great number on the set is "Old Man Willow", a really tripped-out longer track from Elephant's Memory – swirling around in organ and hippie vocals, and oddly echoing the main Barry theme of the set at times!

Bruce Lee/John BarryGame Of Death/Night Games ... CD
Silva, Early 70s/1979. Used ... $14.99
2 classic John Barry soundtracks – back to back on one CD! Game Of Death is from a Bruce Lee film –and features some ambitious orchestral scoring by John Barry – coupled with some tighter, groovier styles that are more in keeping with Lee's other films. Overall, there's lots of nice sound bits sneaking in and out of the orchestrations – and a few of the best cuts also include some great sound effects. The main theme is really great – and other good tracks include "Will This Be The Song I'll Be Singing Tomorrow", "The Big Motorcycle Fight", and the wild "Stick Fight", which is really just sound effects from a kung fu fight! Hiiiiiiiii-ya! Night Games is another Barry score – done with surprising subtle qualities at times, and a moodier overall feel than you might expect from the cheap sex flick it accompanied. There's a dark brilliance to the music that's completely unexpected – like Morricone's best work of the early 70s, often done for some of the worst films – and titles include "Water Sports", "The Lesbian", "Phantom Of The Orgasm", "The Dominatrix's Waltz", and "Descent Into Decadence".

Columbia (UK), 1960. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of John Barry's first true moments of genius – recorded back when he was the leader of a fab little instrumental combo called the John Barry 7, and was tagged to do some soundtrack work that would forever change the rest of his career! The album's got some incredible instrumental tunes that mix electric guitar and beatnik jazz in a mode that's keeping with the juvenile delinquent theme of the film – with some strings sneaking in to cheese things up a bit, but in a great way that only makes the tunes sound even better! Adam Faith sings vocals on "The Beat Girl Song", "Made You", and "I Did What You Told Me" – and other tunes include "Blues For Beatnicks", "Blondie's Strip", "Beat Girl", "Time Out", "The Sharks", and "The City 2000 AD".

United Artists, 1964. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The soundtrack that put John Barry over the top – and to many, THE James Bond soundtrack! The album chills from the first notes of the haunting title theme – the majestic "Goldfinger", sung by Shirley Bassey with a tone that's as dangerous as a razor-sharp hat spinning through the air! Barry then takes over with some wonderful instrumentals – a blend of crime jazz, mood pieces, chase themes, and more – all peppered with that dark dark Bond theme that we love so much! Titles include "Into Miami", "Teasing The Korean", "Alpine Drive", "Bond Back In Action", "Gassing The Gangsters", and "Death Of Goldfinger". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ John BarryJohn Barry – The Mono Years 1957 to 1962 (3CD set) ... CD
El (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
The great John Barry as a young man – stepping out here on songs that are a lot more rocking than his later fame as a soundtrack composer – served up in a massive 3CD box that collects together singles for Parlophone and Columbia, plus some early rock songs from films! The style here is quite different than the Barry of the James Bond years – as the Parlophone tracks include a number of vocal singles that are clearly trying to challenge the US rock hits of the time, mixed with more instrumentals by the John Barry Seven – and the Columbia years follow with more of the instrumental vibe, often using cool production to bring the most out of the twangy guitars or bright trumpet lines. The set concludes with a CD that features the Beat Girl soundtrack and the Stringbeat instrumental album – both a strong extension of the Columbia years – and the package features 92 tracks in all – with a big booklet of notes – titles that include "Get Lost Jack frost", "Big Fella", "Beat For Beatniks", "Hit & Miss", "Zip Zip", "Little John", "Hideaway", "Farrago", "Big Guitar", "Tit Willow Twist", "Watch Your Step", "The Menace", "Blondie's Strip", "The Challenge", "Moody River", "A Handful Of Songs", "Zapata", and lots lots more.

A modern take on Gilbert & Sullivan's Mikado – one that features instrumental grooves from the great John Barry, plus vocal performances by Frankie Howerd, Kevin Scott, Lissa Gray, and Stubby Kaye! The music often follows the spirit of the classic strongly – but Barry's touch makes for some key groovy elements too – especially on the instrumental selections, which are the ones we almost like best. Given the singers chosen for the performances, the lyrics have a somewhat updated feel too – and titles include "A Wandering Minstrel", "Cool Mikado Overture", "Gentlemen Of Japan", "Three Little Maids From School", "For He's Gone & Married Yum Yum", "Here's A How De Do", "Tit Willow Twist", and "The Sun Who's Rays Are All Ablaze".

The theme song features vocals by Tom Jones – and the rest of the tunes almost reads as a who's who of hipster influences, as so many of them have been taken up by other artists as band or album names.

Riverside/OJC, 1958. Used ... $5.99
A groundbreaking album – not only for Cannonball Adderley, but for the jazz concerto format, used to strong effect here in this excellent modernist composition by John Benson Brooks! The album's based on a number of historical and mythical southern themes – and although it gets a bit hokey at times, the work of Adderley and Art Farmer on the solo sections really opens up the piece and gives it a deep sense of soul. The setting is a drummer-less small group, with Barry Galbraith on guitar, Milt Hinton on bass, and Brooks on occasional piano – and themes include "The Loop", "Trampin", "Little John Shoes", "Milord's Calling", and "Rufus Playboy".

Universal, 1965. Used ... $4.99
An oddly placed session for Hooker – considering that it was recorded for Impulse during the 60s, when most of their work was in a jazz vein. In keeping with that, they've backed Hooker with a trio of jazz players – Milt Hinton, Panama Francis, and Barry Galbraith – who give the tracks a polished style that's different than some of Hooker's other work. John Lee's still out front, though, and the vocals are recorded very nicely. Tracks include "Bottle Up & Go", "Sugar Mama", "Decoration Day", "You're Wrong", and a good cover of "Money". CD

Atlantic, 1957. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
One of the strongest sessions recorded by pianist John Lewis in the 50s – a date that shows depths of his talents that run even greater than his work with the Modern Jazz Quartet, quite possibly because is work on piano is at the forefront of the record throughout! There's a sense of darkness here that really fits the image on the cover – a style that's stated clearly on piano lines that are often as spacious as they are gentle, but which also have a moodier undercurrent below, thanks to Lewis' careful choice of keys and notes. The backing is often quite spare – Lewis sometimes plays just with Connie Kay's drums, or the guitar of either Jim Hall or Barry Galbraith – and at its fullest, the record features 2 trio numbers with the bass of Percy Heath and drums of Connie Kay. Tracks are lyrically and thoughtfully composed – and titles include "Two Lyric Pieces", "Harlequin", "D&E", "Little Girl Blue", and "Warmeland". LP, Vinyl record album

But our favorites are the instrumental songs – handled by Marvin Hamlisch here with a sound that's perhaps a bit more Hollywood than John Barry, but still pretty nice overall – and with a bit less of the sentimentality that you might expect from Hamlisch's other hits of the 70s. Instrumental titles include "Ride To Atlantis", "Mojave Club", "The Tanker", "The Pyramids", "Eastern Lights", "Anya", and "Bond 77". LP, Vinyl record album

Mother EarthComplete Recordings 1968 to 1970 (Living With The Animals/Make A Joyful Noise/Satisfied) ... CD
Mercury/Wounded Bird, Late 60s. New Copy 2CD ... Just Sold Out!
A trio of classics from this groundbreaking group! First up is Living With The Animals – fantastic early work from Mother Earth – one of those special late 60s groups who emerged out of the rock, folk, and blues scenes – but who somehow managed to make a very special sound of their own! Part of the group's strength is the lovely Tracey Nelson – a singer who could have been a soul artist if she wanted – but who works here with a looser approach to generic conventions as she moves through a number of different modes – sometimes stepping aside for the group's lead singer, R Powell St John Jr, who also plays a bit of harmonica. Instrumentation is given some stronger currents from a combo that features Mike Bloomfield on guitar, Barry Goldberg on organ, and Luis Gasca on trumpet – and titles include "Marvel Group", "Mother Earth", "It Won't Be Long", "Down So Low", "The Kingdom Of Heaven", and "My Love Will Never Die". Make A Joyful Noise is an album that has slightly fuller backings than their debut, but in a way that only seems to bring out more of the soulful currents of their sound! The mix of rural inspiration and tighter presentation is a great illustration of the changing North Cali style of the period – and no surprise, a young Boz Scaggs is in the group, providing rhythm guitar next to the vocals of Tracy Nelson and R Powell St John. A few country legends provide extra support on fiddle, dobro, and steel – balanced nicely by a strong horn section too – on titles that include "Stop The Train", "Soul Of The Man", "Blues For The Road", "Come On & See", "I The Fly", "Wait Wait Wait", "I Wanna Be Your Mama Again", and "Then I'll Be Moving On". Last up is Satisfied – countrified rock from Tracy Nelson and Mother Earth – done in a warm and sincere style that goes way beyond any of the cliches of the genre! There's something about the way the group put together the tunes that really makes us like this one – an honesty that's not bogged down in any hippy dippy expectations, and which never tries to be anything other that what it is. And yes, that's not much of a good description of the set – but it's also our way of identifying the uniqueness that set Mother Earth apart from a lot of their contemporaries. Titles include "Satisfied", "Groovy Way", "Andy's Song", "Ruler Of My Heart", "This Feeling", and "You Won't Be Passing Here No More". CD

A lovely groover – one of the swinginest soundtracks penned by Nino during the 60s, written for a sex comedy starring Uno Tognazzi and Juliet Prowse. The feel of the work is great – somewhere between Piero Piccioni and John Barry – with a mixture of strings, tight rhythms, and some excellent occasional work on organ. Even the mellow numbers are nice – with a lilting feel that makes them dance a bit. Titles include "Girls On The Golfing Green", "Sunday Parley", "A Feel For The Latin", "All", "Sounding The Surf", and "Martinis & A Good Night Kiss". Vocal version of "All" is sung by Frankie Randall. LP, Vinyl record album

Old Town, 1976. Near Mint- ... $2.99
A great 70s move for Arthur Prysock – and an overlooked disco treasure that sits somewhere between the work of Barry White with Love Unlimited Orchestra, and the best Lou Rawls grooves for Philly International! Prysock's voice has lost none of its depth over the years – and here, instead of jazzy ballads, Arthur's working with some great midtempo grooves put together by John Davis – who produced and arranged, and gives the album all the full clubby depth of his own records with the Monster Orchestra! The mix of groove and grace, baritone and bump, soul and sophistication is all mighty great territory for Prysock – and titles include "When Love Is New", "One Broken Heart", "All My Life", "Love Makin Love To You", "I Wantcha Baby", and "All I Need Is You Tonight".

✨✧ Sun RaSun Song (aka Jazz By Sun Ra) ... LP
Transition/Delmark, 1956. Very Good- ... $14.99
Sun Ra's first album as a leader – originally issued on the Transition label, but presented here in its better-known incarnation by Delmark Records! Even at this early point, Ra had a sound unlike any of his contemporaries – large group and modern, but not in a way that showed any similarities to work going on in New York or LA – a voice that was all his own, and already quite boldly stated, even in these early years! The format might be somewhat familiar – an ensemble with horns and rhythm – but the overall execution really starts to open up as the album moves on – with odd phrasings, timings, and unusual moments that live up to all the promise you might expect from Ra. Even Mingus and some of his better-known contemporaries weren't heading in these directions in the mid 50s – and the record is a proud showcase of the freedoms that players were often accorded in the less-trafficked Chicago scene of the time. Horns include Art Hoyle & Dave Young on trumpets, John Gilmore on tenor sax, Pat Patrick on baritone, Julian Priester on trombone, and James Scales on alto sax – and rhythm includes Jim Herndon on tympani, Robert Barry on drums, Wilbur Green on electric bass, and a young Richard Evans on acoustic bass! Titles include "Brainville", "Call For All Demons", "Transition", "Lullaby For Realville", "Street Named Hell", "New Horizons", "Fall Off The Long", "Possession", and "Future". LP, Vinyl record album

He gets a helping hand here from Les Baxter and a boatload of west coast session greats like Carol Kaye, Tommy Tedesco, Dennis Budimir, Don Randi, Leon Russell, Hal Blaine and even Glen Campbell, on a bevy of popular spy and action themes – like "Thunderball", "Man Alone", "I Spy", "Our Man Flint", "Get Smart", "Goldfinger", "The Ipcress File", "I Spy", "Our Man Flint", "OO7", "Run Spy Run", "The Rockford Files" and "The Prisoner" – all done by Strange with that great twangy guitar sound that he already had in the first place, and which was probably ripped off by John Barry for the Bond scores!

Something weird, and something very cool too – a set that brings together a whole host of strange and unusual tunes from the glory days of exploitation cinema! These cuts are all from a time when the b-movie underground was playing it fast and loose – trying to get more folks into the theaters with some ultra-sleazy themes – which resulted in wilder music than you might have heard in movies just a few short years before!

The package is presented by Something Weird – the video company who've reissued lots of these exploitation films over the years – and the package is kind of a "best of" their on-screen efforts – as it also includes some spoken passages from films, which further make the tunes sound great. The package is divided up into themes – Psychedelic Hippie Freak Out, Rock O Rama Go Go, Deliriously Demented Ditties, and Sleazy Swinging Sounds – with work by Johnny Hawksworth, John Barry, The Group, The Love Generation, Joe Bisko, Alan Hawkshaw, Lee Dowell, The Penny Arcade, Billy Lee Riley, Betty Dickson, John Gabriel, Neil Patrick, Meg Myles, and The Huntington Astronauts.

VariousTroxy Music Vol 2 – 50s & 60s Film Themes ... CD
Croydon Municipal (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $3.99 13.99
Some of the coolest, most swinging film themes you'll ever hope to hear – not the usual band of over-hashed classics from the 50s and 60s – but instead a really fresh, obscure collection – and one that features lots of rare work from the British scene too! Vocals and instrumentals share equal time in the spotlight – which means that one minute you'll hear a lush jazz vocal or catchy pop chorus, and the next you'll get a groovy soundtrack theme in styles that run from rocking to jazzy! The folks at Croydon Municipal are clearly lovers of unusual cinema – as well as records – and have done a great job here picking out tunes that have a very special, very cool quality – even if you already have a lot of soundtracks in your collection. Titles include "Riverside Stomp" by Johnny Dankworth, "She'll Have To Go" by Dennis Lotis, "The Rebel" by Frank Cordell, "The Little Hut" by Tommy Watt, "No My Darling Daughter" by Juliet Mills & Michael Redgrave, "Never Let Go" by John Barry, "The Stranger" by The Hoplites, "Mix Me A Person" by Adam Faith, "The Big Ship Sails On The Alley-O" by Corona Kids, and "Keep Your Eyes On The Hands" by Jane Russell.

✨✧ Al Cohn/Bill Perkins/Richie KamucaBrothers! – The Complete Sessions ... CD
RCA (Spain), 1955. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A classic set of interlocking tenor work from 3 giants who made up the best part of Woody Herman's classic 4 horn lineup – Al Cohn, Bill Perkins, and Richie Kamuca – all coming together here in small group formation! The album's a wonderful example of the way that the hornplay of the larger Herman group had an influence on the smaller combos of the west coast scene – and Perkins and Kamuca are especially great here, working with a strong sense of precision, but also some nice humanity in their tone. Other group members include either Jimmy Raney or Barry Galbraith on guitar, Hank Jones on piano, John Beal on bass, and Chuck Flores on drums – and titles include "Cap Snapper", "Pro Ex", "Hags", "Gay Blade", and "The Walrus". This CD offers up the complete sessions, and features a number of extra tracks! CD

GNP, 1960s. Very Good ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Although there were plenty of easy and studio musicians who tried to cash in on the success of the Bond-era spy soundtracks, few did it as well as Billy Strange! He gets a helping hand here from Les Baxter and a boatload of west coast session greats like Carol Kaye, Tommy Tedesco, Dennis Budimir, Don Randi, Leon Russell, Hal Blaine and even Glen Campbell, on a bevy of popular spy and action themes – like "Thunderball", "Man Alone", "I Spy", "Our Man Flint", "Get Smart", "Goldfinger", "The Ipcress File", "I Spy", "Our Man Flint", "OO7", "Run Spy Run", "The Rockford Files" and "The Prisoner" – all done by Strange with that great twangy guitar sound that he already had in the first place, and which was probably ripped off by John Barry for the Bond scores!

Impulse, Late 60s. Near Mint- Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
An incredible record from Sun Ra! The session was recorded in New York in the late 60s – and it features Ra playing the "solar sound instrument", which is actually a modified Hohner Clavinet, used here with some really spooky sounds! The setting of the album is spare and moody – with Ra striking out first on the "solar sound instrument" – laying down a groove that's filled in by John Gilmore on tenor, plus additional percussion by Robert Barry (who plays a bit of the "lightning drum"), Clifford Jarvis, Marshall Allen, and Pat Patrick. Titles include "Mu", "Lemuria", "Atlantis", "Bimini", and "Yucatan". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Collins & CollinsCollins & Collins ... CD
A&M (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A stunning set – and one of our favorite modern soul albums ever! The set was recorded at Sigma Sound Studios in 1980, and it's one of the best-ever records to come out of that hallowed hall of grooves – a one-off debut from the team of Tonee & Bill Collins, set to impeccable arrangements from the mighty John Davis! The set's not really disco – more a blend of mellow soul and midtempo club – with a sound that evokes artists like Barry White, Leon Ware, and Leroy Hutson – but which also grooves with a feel that's all its own. Nearly every cut's fantastic, and although you may know the duo's classic "Top Of The Stairs" from other collections, there's loads of other nice tracks here too – like "You Know How To Make Me Feel So Good", "Can't Turn Down Love", and "You Made Me Believe".

✨✧ Sun RaSun Song (aka Jazz By Sun Ra) ... LP
Transition/Delmark, 1956. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Sun Ra's first album as a leader – originally issued on the Transition label, but presented here in its better-known incarnation by Delmark Records! Even at this early point, Ra had a sound unlike any of his contemporaries – large group and modern, but not in a way that showed any similarities to work going on in New York or LA – a voice that was all his own, and already quite boldly stated, even in these early years! The format might be somewhat familiar – an ensemble with horns and rhythm – but the overall execution really starts to open up as the album moves on – with odd phrasings, timings, and unusual moments that live up to all the promise you might expect from Ra. Even Mingus and some of his better-known contemporaries weren't heading in these directions in the mid 50s – and the record is a proud showcase of the freedoms that players were often accorded in the less-trafficked Chicago scene of the time. Horns include Art Hoyle & Dave Young on trumpets, John Gilmore on tenor sax, Pat Patrick on baritone, Julian Priester on trombone, and James Scales on alto sax – and rhythm includes Jim Herndon on tympani, Robert Barry on drums, Wilbur Green on electric bass, and a young Richard Evans on acoustic bass! Titles include "Brainville", "Call For All Demons", "Transition", "Lullaby For Realville", "Street Named Hell", "New Horizons", "Fall Off The Long", "Possession", and "Future". LP, Vinyl record album

Ember/Bulldog (UK), 1964. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
An obscure one from Annie Ross – recording here as a solo act back in England after leaving her famous group with Dave Lambert and John Hendricks! The style here is a bit like some of the solo work that Ross cut in the US at the end of the 50s – particularly her sides for Pacific Jazz – not as vocalese and solo-oriented as the sort of recordings that first got her noticed, but still a lot more dynamic than most straighter jazz singers of the time! Arrangements are pretty groovy overall – nicely jazzy, and penned by Johnnie Spence – also produced by John Barry, who really helps keep the right sort of "punch" in the set. Titles include "Fly Me To The Moon", "Nature Boy", "A Lot Of Livin To Do", "Like Someone In Love", "A Handful Of Songs", and "All Of You". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousAm I Dreaming – 80 Brit Girl Sounds Of The 60s (3CD set) ... CD
RPM (UK), 1960s. New Copy 3CD ... Out Of Stock
There's nothing like 60s British female pop at all – a genre that's very much unto itself, and which seems to draw equally from roots in rock, pop, and soul! Most of the cuts here have a punch that's different than the softer, sometimes sadder tones of American girl pop of the time – a brashness that's often augmented by really great production, and a romping groove that really brings out a soulful current in the vocal delivery! And while you may know this style famously from singers who crossed over here – like Dusty Springfield or Petula Clark – there's a huge amount of work here by much lesser-known acts, which makes this 80 track collection a stunning introduction to this huge world of music. The book alone is maybe worth the price – as it offers track-by-track notes on every single cut – sometimes with record scans or photos, and always with release information too – documenting some really fab sounds by singers who include Jacky, Samantha Jones, Jan Dalton, Glenda Collins, Lorraine Child, Greta Ann, Billie Davis, Antoinette, Kiki Dee, Gillian Hills, Cheryl St Clair, Adrienne Poster, Jacki Martin, Lulu, Barry St John, The Exceptions, and lots lots more!

✨✧ VariousPop Genius Of Mickie Most ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
They're not lying with the title of this one – as producer Mickie Most was one of the true studio geniuses on the UK scene of the 60s – as you'll hear here in a fantastic collection of some of his best work – packaged with a beautiful 72 page booklet of notes that will tell you everything you'll need to know about the man himself! But even without the big booklet, the music here speaks volumes on its own – as Mickie's genius runs from some of the key groups of the Brit Invasion years, to that fantastic late 60s moment when the English scene was getting very cool and expressive – to key 70s points that include a bit of early glam, hard rock, and other styles too! You've probably heard a good number of these tracks over the years, but never realized they all had Mickie's hands on them – and they're packaged together here with some great surprises along the way – titles that include "Gin House" by Paul Williams & The Big Roll Band, "Little Games" by The Yardbirds, "Motor Bikin" by Chris Spedding, "House Of The Rising Sun" by The Animals, "Hi Ho Silver Lining" by Jeff Beck, "Journey" by Duncan Browne, "Brother Louie" by Hot Chocolate, "Sunshine Superman" by Donovan, "I Love Rock N Roll" by Arrows, "Living Next Door To Alice" by New World, "The Boat That I Row" by Lulu, "Walking" by CCS, "Dance With The Devil" by Cozy Powell, "No Milk Today" by Herman's Hermits, "Flight 2" by Angelo & Eighteen, "Some Girls" by Racey, "Bread & Butter" by Barry St John, "Days Of My Life" by The Seekers, and "48 Crash" by Suzi Quatro.

Cher3614 Jackson Highway (Limited edition – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Atco/Rhino Handmade, 1969. Used ... $29.99
We're not normally ones to stock a Cher album, but this one's pretty darn hip – recorded in at Muscle Shoals Sound, the studio referenced in the title of the album, and presented in a wonderful cover image that has Cher standing outside the tiny facility with a host of legendary studio players that include Eddie Hinton, Jimmy Johnson, Barry Beckett, and Roger Hawkins! Sonny's also standing in the crowd in the photo, but he's as in the background as he is on this set – as Cher's singing alone in a soul-styled mode that's befits the setting of the album. Titles include a funky take on "I Walk On Guilded Splinters", plus "For What It's Worth", "Cry Like A Baby", "Save The Children", "Do Right Woman", and "Dock Of The Bay". Plus, the CD features a huge amount of bonus tracks – 11 more numbers from a whole second Muscle Shoals album, but which was never issued – with titles that include "Momma Look Sharp", "Chastity's Song", "It Gets Me Where I Want To Go", "Easy To Be Hard", "I Believe", "You've Made Me So Very Happy", and "The First Time".

JJ Johnson, Joe Simon, Millie JacksonCleopatra Jones – Original Soundtrack (red & blue starburst vinyl pressing) ... LP
WEA/Real Gone, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
One of the best of the blacksploitation scores of the early 70s – a masterpiece of music that we rate every bit as high as Shaft or Superfly – maybe even higher! The music here is incredible – a surprising funky turn for JJ Johnson, who most folks know for his straighter jazz work – and like Marvin Gaye, Barry White, and others who were surprising the world with their ability to score music for a full film during the early 70s, JJ really knocks it out of the park with this one – coming up with a batch of tunes that are a wonderful mix of sophisticated scoring, creative instrumentation, and some damn funky grooves! The title cut features Joe Simon on vocals, and Millie Jackson sings on the cuts "Love Doctor" and "It Hurts So Good". The rest of the set is instrumental, and other cuts include an instrumental take on "Cleopatra Jones", plus "Go Chase Cleo", "Goin To The Chase", "Wrap Up", and "Airport Fight".

Riverside/Milestone, Mid 40s/1957. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $11.99
A nice set that brings together Hawk Flies High plus earlier material from 78s! The core record is a key album in the reintroduction of Coleman Hawkins in the late 50s – recorded in a style that still bears a lot of traces of earlier years, but at a time when Hawk was being claimed as a key influence by a variety of younger modernists! The set's got a sense of freedom that's really surprising – especially on the longer numbers, which unfold with some playful instrumental twists that seem to come especially from trumpeter Idrees Sulieman and trombonist JJ Johnson – both of whom are great on the record. Other players include Hank Jones on piano, Barry Galbraith on guitar, and Oscar Pettiford on bass – and titles include "Juicy Fruit", "Think Deep", "Blue Lights", "Sanctity", and "Chant". Other material is from 40s 78s – very nicely presented! LP, Vinyl record album

Titles include The Politicians "Free Your Mind", The Village Callers "Hector", Sound Experience "Devil With The Bust", James Brown "Soul Pride", Johnny Pate "Shaft In Africa", plus edited/extended versions of Joe Tex "Papa Was Too", All The People "Cramp Your Style", Barry White "I'm Gonna Love You Just A Little Bit More" and Tommy Roe's "Dizzy" listed as "LL Bonus Beat #2".

Jackie & RoyGlory Of Love ... LP
ABC, 1956. Very Good+ ... $4.99
One of our favorite albums by the team of Jackie & Roy – a really special little set that features small combo backing, great tunes, and some of the best vocals of their early career! The album features Roy playing piano in a quartet with Barry Galbraith on guitar, Milt Hinton on bass, and Osie Johnson on drums – and there's a lightly jazzy feel to the whole set, one that really works well with the vocals from the pair. Jackie takes the lead on some numbers, but most have her and Roy singing duets – in that cool mix of scatting and lyrical interplay they do so well. Pretty groovy stuff – especially for the 50s – and titles include "Let's Get Away From It All", "You Inspire Me", "Where Did The Gentleman Go", "The Glory Of Love", "I Love You Real", and "Miz Margret".

✨✧ TwennynineTwennynine With Lenny White ... LP
Elektra, 1980. Very Good+ ... $1.99
One of the best ever records from Twennynine – produced and arranged by Lenny White & Larry Dunn– jazzy modern soul at it's dawn of the decade finest! Twennynine With Lenny White is way at the front of the pack of a lot of the 80s groove elements to follow in its wake – with popping basslines, heavy bass pedals, compressed guitar riffs and a really insistent overall groove! The record's got a pretty straight R&B feel, but thanks to White's nice production, there's a lot of good fusion elements in the mix – which raises the album a step above, and makes it groove nicely. The group features keyboards by Skip Anderson, doing a great job stepping in for Don Blackman, with lead vocals by Tanya Willoughby, synths by Larry Dunn, percussion by Paulinho De Costa, guitar by Eddie Martinez, bass by Barry Johnson and others. Titles include "My Melody", "Kid Stuff", "Fancy Dancer", "Slip Away", "We Had To Break Away", and "Love & Be Loved". LP, Vinyl record album

Because/Import (Germany), Early 70s. New Copy 3CD ... $20.99
A special 3CD collection – one that brings together the first three volumes of Shaolin Soul – a great series inspired by the inventive approach the Wu-Tang Clan brought to the world of hip hop samples – that great sense of sound that had them going for tunes that had way more to offer than just a funky drum break! Instead, these classic soul tracks are overflowing with amazing musical elements – not just the great vocals of the singers or amazing energy of the grooves – but also some instrumental and production twists that really keep things interesting – and which have always made this series a standout. The set features 62 tracks in all – and titles include "Trouble, Heartaches, & Sadness" by Ann Peebles, "Let's Straighten It Out" by OV Wright, "I'll Never Grow Up" by The Charmels, "Mellow Mood" by Barry White, "In The Rain" by The Dramatics, "After Laughter" by Wendy Rene, "The Way We Were" by Gladys Knight & The Pips, "Children Don't Get Weary" by Booker T & The MGs with Judy Clay, "Little Ghetto Boy (live)" by Donny Hathaway, "Could I Be Falling In Love" by Syl Johnson, "Ain't No Sunshine" by Lyn Collins, "I Hear The Love Chimes" by Syl Johnson, "I'm Gonna Tear Your Playhouse Down" by Ann Peebles, "It's Over" by Eddie Holman, "Maybe Tomorrow" by Jackson 5, "Honey Bee" by The New Birth, "I Keep Asking You Questions" by Black Ivory, "Gone The Promises Of Yesterday" by The Mad Lads, "I Got The" by Labbi Siffre, "I've Been Watching You" by Southside Movement, "Why Marry" by The Sweet Inspirations, "You're Getting Too Smart" by The Detroit Emeralds, "Come Go With Me" by Teddy Pendergrass, "Simply Beautiful" by Al Green, "I'm His Wife" by Ann Sexton, "Takin It" by The Rimshots, "Gypsy Woman" by The Persuasions, "You Roam When You Don't Get It At Home" by The Sweet Inspirations, "Ain't No Love In The Heart Of The City" by Bobby Bland, "Groovin On My Baby's Love" by Freddie Waters, "How Can You Say Goodbye" by Sidney Joe Qualls, "If" by Jackie Moore, "Creation (epilogue)" by Jimmy Castor, "Tune Up" by The Dramatics, "It Ain't Long Enough" by Judy Clay, "Mercy Mercy Mercy" by Willie Mitchell, "In My Heart" by Barbara & The Browns, and "Hang On Sloopy (single version)" by David Porter.

✨✧ Clark TerrySwahili (Clark Terry/Jimmy Hamilton & The New York Jazz Quintet) ... CD
EmArcy/Phono (Spain), 1954/1955. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
2 rare sides of work by trumpeter Clark Terry – both with a fair bit more edge than many of his later recordings! The first half of the CD is from the amazing 1955 album Clark Terry for Emarcy – a real stunner, and one of Terry's finest moments ever! The record has a rawness and groove that you'd hardly expect from his later albums – no surprise, though, considering that it was cut during that really hip time at Emarcy, when the label was working in a mode that was darker and more challenging than many of the smaller labels at the time. Credit is also due to arranger Quincy Jones – who pulls together a group that includes Horace Silver, Jimmy Cleveland, Cecil Payne, and Art Blakey, all into a fiercely grooving sound that recalls some of his most adventurous work of the 50s. The album kicks off with the stunning "Swahili", a tune that will instantly make you happy you bought the record – and other tracks include "Coop", "Chuckles", "Tuma", "Kitten", and "The Countess". These tracks are followed by 8 more from an obscure 1954 session done under the leadership of clarinetist Jimmy Hamilton – and featuring Terry on trumpet, Barry Galbraith and Sidney Gross on guitars, Oscar Pettiford on bass, and Osie Johnson on drums – all in a really unusual group formation that's totally great! One guitar's used for solos and the other for rhythm – and the lack of piano gives the record a decidedly different swing than you might expect from a Jimmy Hamilton session – one that's less traditional, and more airy and open – really inventive in the rhythmic construction of the tunes, in a mode that's followed up very nicely by the soloists in their own energy. Titles include "Chuckles", "Bohemia After Dark", "Blues In My Room", "Blues For Clarinet", and "What Am I Here For". CD

The tracks are all pretty hip – and include titles written by Stevie Wonder, Johnny Guitar Watson, Thom Bell & Linda Creed, Billy Page, and Tennyson Stevens. No standout tracks, but plenty of nice moments, and a good side of Nancy's career that isn't always given that much exposure.

Capitol/Okra Tone, 1958. Used ... Out Of Stock
2 classic Hank Jones albums on one CD – both of them long out of print Capitol sessions! Talented Touch features sweet and mellow grooving from Hank, recorded with backing by Milt Hinton, Barry Galbraith, and Osie Johnson – using a warm lyrical touch that's really perfectly poised – and which stays soulful without getting soppy. Titles include "The Blue Room", "If I Love Again", "Let Me Know", "Try A Little Tenderness", and "It's Easy To Remember". Porgy & Bess, as you might guess, features Jones on work from Gershwin's famous musical – backed by a trio that features Milt Hinton on bass, Alvin Jones on percussion, and Kenny Burrell on guitar. The album's a great example of Jones' fluid piano style, recorded at its peak in the late 50s – and although forged into a common Porgy & Bess tribute mode of the time, tends to do a lot more with the material than other albums of its type! Includes "Summertime", "I Ain't Got No Shame", "It Ain't Necessarily So", and "A Woman Is A Sometime Thing". 22 tracks in all. CD
